In the early evening of August 8, 1993, 27-year-old Kelly Cahill and her husband were returning home by car from a friend’s party in the suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. They were going along the quiet foothills of the Dandenong Ridge when Kelly saw a ring of orange lights, hovering over the road in front of their car.
Kelly remembered that she had seen the same strange lights while going to a friend’s party but they ignored them, thinking that it was a helicopter. The Cahills noticed that as they were getting closer to the object, there was no noise from it. The U̳F̳O̳ had round windows with glasses, and she saw some people sitting in there.
They tried to ignore the object and continued their way. But after one kilometer, they saw a very bright light ahead. They decided to go further and that was the last thing Kelly remembered.
She said her whole body was filled with adrenaline, and her heart was beating very fast. They had no clue what exactly was happening to them. Kelly’s husband thought that maybe they took the wrong turn and they felt very unsual like they had lost time.
Kelly Cahill said that the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s were tall, skinny, and had big red eyes
They only noted that for some reason, their car smelled like puke, although they did not see any vomit. They both felt that something had clearly happened to them, something was wrong, but they continued to drive along the road as if everything was normal. And then on the side of the road, they saw a very tall, dark figure.
When they returned home, they realized that their journey back from their friends took them one hour more than necessary. And none of them remembered what had happened to them during that missing hour.
Kelly saw a strange triangular mark under her navel when she was undressing for going to bed. She hadn’t had anything like it before in her life. Besides, she had a headache, nausea, abdominal pains, and severe muscle fatigue for the next week after the incident.
Kelly Cahill drew the sketch of the red-eye skinny a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ she saw in 1993.
A week later, Kelly realized her menstrual cycle began earlier than usual, and it was abnormally painful. Her whole body ached, and she could hardly walk due to a sharp pain in the stomach. Her husband took her to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with an infection in her uterus.
When Kelly was in the hospital, she started recalling her memories of the lost time. It was like bright flashes from the subconscious, which gradually formed into a big picture. She recalled that on that night after seeing a bright orange light, they stopped and then saw some figure was coming tow̳a̳r̳ds them from that light.
Later, when Kelly recovered and they were driving along the same road again, she was suddenly covered with a wave of absolute fear and from that moment, she began to remember everything that had happened to her. She recalled that after the bright light, she and her husband saw a huge object that was standing in a field next to the road. The object was at least 50 meters in height. They got out of the car to get a better look at the object, after which Kelly saw that two other cars also stopped to take a look at the U̳F̳O̳.
“There was orange light and this blue stuff underneath. It was like science fiction coming to life,” she said in one of her interviews.
Kelly saw a number of tall, slender black figures with glowing red eyes in front of her. As the creature approached her, she began screaming.
In a moment, she seemed to be thrown back and fell onto the ground, it was difficult for her to breathe and she went blind. She saw only darkness and heard a male voice in her heard.
“I felt this blow to my stomach and went flying in the air and I heard my husband say let go of me and this male voice that said, ‘I mean you no harm’,” she told Today Tonight.
A few weeks later, Kelly started seeing a nightmare every night: a black red-eyed a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ appears in her bedroom and pulls her legs out of her bed. Her body was paralyzed from the waist down, and she felt flying through the air tow̳a̳r̳ds the humanoid. And then, she woke up every time. It was strange that Kelly’s husband did not remember anything, but Kelly remembered more and more details of her abduction every day.
Encounter by Kelly Cahill
Then the whole story was leaked to the press, and Kelly Cahill became one of the most popular media figures in Australia for a while. She was invited to television shows, on the radio, and interviewed. In 1997, she published a book entitled “Encounter: The True Story.”
Kelly kept getting her memories of that incident over the following years. She even said at some point, the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s told her that they were planning to invade Earth, and then, after being abducted, she was once pursued by a strange black helicopter.
The Kelly Cahill case became one of the most famous Australian a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ abduction cases, although there were many questions to it. Kelly has never remembered what exactly the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s did to her after the abduction, and her story mostly revolved around the moment when she and her husband saw the bright light and fuzzy figures.
