It appears that visitors from other worlds are taking a real interest in Greece. Greek newspaper ‘Espresso’ recently reported that earlier this month on Tuesday, February 3, a clear UFO sighting occurred on the Peloponnese Peninsula near the Isthmus of Corinth.
The UFO was witnessed and reported to local police by a number of people. One of the witnesses, Patapios Palaiologou, a 42 year old worker at a local casino, was driving his daughter to school when he saw the UFO.
"The time was 8 in the morning and I was with my daughter in our car. It was a sunny day and the sky was totally clear. Suddenly, I saw a huge object over the small hillside opposite the village where we live. It looked like nothing I had ever seen before, and I could not believe it."
I pointed it out to my stunned daughter. I got out of the car to get a better look. It appeared to be about 400 meters above ground and it was huge, about 300 meters in diameter. It looked like the planet Saturn with a red ring around it and was metallic silver in colour."
According to Mr. Paleologos, the UFO remained suspended for about ten seconds, and then the ring began to vibrate at an incredibly fast pace. All of a sudden, the object started to tremble very strongly and a few seconds later he saw a terribly intense glow on its right side.
He added, "Then it disappeared! Indeed, it was incredible... I am confused. On the one hand I am happy to have witnessed such an event, on the other hand I know that few will believe me."
Mr Palaiologou reported the incident to the police and noted that they were extremely supportive, jotting down all details and mentioning that others had witnessed the same UFO near the same hill and some of the sightings had even occurred a week before.
One other witness turned out to be an aunt of Mr Palaiologou, a Mrs Roula, who also remains shocked by what she saw. "I wish I knew what it was," she commented.
Perhaps alien visitors are scanning ancient historic sites to gain an insight into human beings' strange, often aggressive nature. Perhaps they themselves helped create these ancient civilisations and still like to keep an eye on their creations.
Some ufologists might argue that the visiting aliens are trying to understand the amusing phenomenon whereby so many human beings and their elected officials refuse to believe in their presence here: even as they make it so obvious.
