    The 1994 UFO Sighting at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe

    This is one of the cases, which is hard to set aside, 62 children as witnesses makes it extremely hard to discredit.

    one of the aspects of this which has me intrigued is the message given to these children.
    "One child recalled being told by the alien that we should not be so ‘techknowledged’ "

    Which initially points to a species concerned with the health of the planet, yet other experiences points to technology being shared and taught. Multiple factions with various agendas is a possibility. Are technologies shared a Trojan horse toward a self destruct, wherein we do not have the maturity or proper knowledge to control such technologies? Which reminds me of the crop circle warning about gifts.

    On another note it seems a bit egotistical to think human have the capacity to destroy the planet, when the most likely outcome is humans simply become a species on the edge of extinction. As the planet continues on barely recording our existence in the overall geological record. An advanced species would know this, so it would seem the warning is most likely targeted to ensure a hominid continuance on the planet. But why would they care either way, with as many lifeforms as there are on this planet, some much more intelligent (i.e. dolphins and whales) than we are? What is truly at stake here for the aliens?


    In 1994, Harvard Professor of Psychiatry John E. Mack, M.D. traveled to Zimbabwe with research associate Dominique Callimanopulos to study one of the most extraordinary UFO sighting/alien encounter cases in modern history.

    At the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, sixty-two children between the ages of eight and twelve reported seeing a UFO and “strange beings” during morning recess. Dr. Mack, who died in 2004, wrote about this in his 1999 book Passport to the Cosmos, and he shared 3 minutes of clips from the original video recordings of his interviews with the students on the television programs Sightings in 1996 (2 minutes and 51 seconds, to be exact).

    In 2007, at the request of the John E. Mack Institute, filmmaker Randall Nickerson and Dominique Callimanopulos began production of an edited video program that would present all of John Mack’s interviews with the schoolchildren and faculty, digitally remastered from the original Betacam footage that was shot between November 28 and December 6, 1994. This footage demonstrated the skill and sensitivity Dr. Mack exercised when working with people who reported extraordinary experiences — and the power of the students’ testimony never failed to move.

    The film became a consuming passion of Nickerson’s, and he set about broadening the scope far beyond expectations.

    In 2008-2009 Nickerson spent 9 months in Africa, discovering new witnesses that corroborate the students’ accounts. In England, he interviewed BBC reporter Tim Leech who was on the scene within days of the sighting, who first brought the case to the attention of Dr. Mack.

    And most importantly, in 2010 Nickerson succeeded in finding many of the former students who had since moved from Zimbabwe to other countries. He re-interviewed them to hear their adult perspectives on what happened.

    Looks interesting! Thanks for the heads up.

    Perhaps one day they'll do a similar one for the school in Westall.
