On the evening of 29th September 1995, at around 9:30 pm in the Vejle region of Jutland, a 24-year-old man would experience a very similar encounter to that of Maarup a quarter of a century earlier.

The unnamed witness was visiting his parents at the time of the incident and was driving along the quiet roads with his Labrador dog in the vehicle with him. However, without warning, the instruments and electrics in his vehicle all began to “go wild”. Even the windscreen wipers were also making their way across the windshield of their own accord which was particularly strange as they remained switched to the off position.

At the same time as these bizarre events, the Labrador began to become increasingly agitated and nervous. As did the witness. Especially when he realized his car was suddenly coming to a stop and the engine was dead.

Worried that other motorists might be unaware of his predicament and would run into the back of him, the witness began to scan his surroundings. After being satisfied that he was, for the time being, alone on the road, he made several attempts to restart the vehicle once more. However, all attempts would prove fruitless.

It was then that he noticed the “strange sensation” that appeared to come from above him. It was a bizarre feeling, and one he would later describe as “oppressive” and “hard to describe”. As he was contemplating this unnerving feeling seemingly seeping in from outside, he became aware of an extremely bright light. So bright, in fact, that he would describe it as an “explosion” of light that occurred directly over his car.

He could tell immediately that the light was coming from above him. What’s more, it appeared to be “blinking or pulsing” and did so at “regular intervals”. He would look up through the windscreen of the vehicle and immediately saw a large oval shape hovering over the top of his car. Although there was a surge of fear running through him, he would open the door and lean outside so he could get a better view of the events unfolding around him.

He would estimate that the object was around 50 feet across and was only a little over ten feet away from the top of his vehicle. He would focus in on the underside of the object in order to make out as many details as he could. Maarup would recall there were several “concentric circles of light” that appeared to be in the middle of the object.

This is perhaps an interesting detail. As we might recall from the incident of Maarup, the middle section of the underside appeared to be where the light emanated from. The witness in the 1995 account would state that light appeared to be behind the grouping of circles. In fact, the light was so bright at the very center if the object the witness struggled to focus in fully on them.

One particularly striking detail that the witness would recall was how the lights “quivered” in a way he found quite bizarre.

He would continue to watch the object for several minutes before the lights suddenly began to grow lighter (much like in the Maarup case). By this point, he had returned into the car and watched the object move away from his location through the windshield.

It remained low to the ground as it moved away, only just above the treetops that hugged the roadside. Then, it would vanish out of sight within a matter of seconds. All the while, the object didn’t make a single sound.

After it disappeared, the witness would simply sit in his car, his dog still very much disturbed by the events. He would think the incident over again in his mind as he came to terms with the bizarre encounter.

After several more moments, he returned his hand to the car’s ignition key and turned it around. Much to his surprise – although a detail we have already noted that shows in many similar UFO encounters – the dashboard electrics, the engine, and the headlights all came to life as normal.

Still nervous and very shaken, he pressed down on the accelerator and continued on with his journey to his parents’ home.  Upon arriving, he would inform both of them of the encounter. Despite their encouragement to report the sightings, he would choose, at least initially, to remain quiet for fear of ridicule and of not being believed.

When he finally did report the incident, investigators would find him honest and trustworthy. And perhaps most importantly of all, credible. The incident, however, remains unsolved. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
