Optical Illusion?

At 7 p.m. on a sweet-sky Saturday, a favoured sixth former will be spicing up for Entertainment Night. So was I, in the shower, many years ago, when a silent aircraft with 2 great headlights halted at a half-angle over the bathhouse. It froze unnervingly for 3 odd minutes, and then it bleeped off at a slow speed.

What unusual or illusory experiences have you had in your time?


  1. Can't recall any optical illusions coming my way but I'm way more interested in yours. Reminds me of the Xfiles. Was anyone else there? Was it 1. A UFO 2. A military plane on a recon mission 3. An optical illusion? Btw, I have heard from a couple of people who were apparently witnesses that in the 80s or 90s, a missile/UFO/meteorite landed in Lake Volta and although the govt knew, the rest of Ghana was clueless. Sounds like a fable to me but v. curious.

  2. Probably just an optical illusion.

  3. @ Abena Serwaa: I was with just another colleague. I watched silently for the full couple minutes, and when I shouted at him to take a look, the huge bird took off slowly. He only saw it moving, and thought I was going mad! And, sadly, I must be one of the many who were clueless about the UFO in the Volta.

    @ Myne Whitman: Yeah. Probably. I would never have thought of that! Lol.

  4. Could have been google mapping out your territory.

  5. Mike, google mapping in the mid-90s? Unlikely. And what I saw was not a chopper! Lol.
