The Priest Who Interacted With Aliens in 1959

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

There are some mysteries that are just never solved.  Some are told by quacks and people who you may have a pretty great reason not to believe… however, every once in awhile a respected member of society comes forward with a mystery that you almost have to believe.

Listverse recently published a great article entitled “10 Strange Church Mysteries That Are Still Unsolved” [1] by author Robin Warder.  And, although the whole list is great (Check out the whole thing HERE), one story in particular I found absolutely fascinating.

Warder writes about “The Papua New Guinea UFO Sightings” of 1959:

In April 1959, a respected Anglican priest named Father William Gill was working as a missionary in the village of Boianai in Papua New Guinea when he saw a strange light traveling across a distant mountain. This same light reappeared on the evening of June 26, but this time, Father Gill was standing outside his mission alongside many other witnesses.

As the light moved closer to them, it became apparent that it was a large disc-shaped object, which appeared to have four large legs beneath it. The witnesses also discerned what appeared to be four alien figures moving around on the object’s upper deck.The strange craft remained in the vicinity for 45 minutes before it disappeared, but when it returned an hour later, it was accompanied by more bright flying objects.

After hovering over the area for four hours, the objects disappeared again, but the strange craft and two smaller flying objects returned to the village yet again on the following evening. This time, Father Gill and one of his companions decided to wave at the alien figures on the craft’s deck. Amazingly, the figures waved back.The next night, a total of eight UFOs showed up to the village, but these were the last that would be seen.

Before the objects disappeared, a large metallic banging sound was heard on the mission’s roof, but no sign of any damage could be found. This story was recounted by over three dozen witnesses, including Father Gill, and remains one of the most credible UFO sightings in history.
