In spring of the year 1986 I bumped into FIGU in Hinterschmidrüti. UFOs as purely technical objects have not especially interested me; for a long time there I've been much more concerned with the philosophy and the statements of the possible extraterestrial beings. It was essential for me to know or learn what they had to say to Earth humans if they were to appear on Earth some day. This was also the reason for my appearance in Hinterschmidrüti.


In August of 1987 -- I can no longer state the date -- I had an apparently persuasive sighting of extraterrestrial ships in Hinterschmidrüti. It was on a warm evening in August when, as so often, many people were gathered together in Hinterschmidrüti. I had parked my car at the wood-yard place, which is found on the road behind Hinterschmidrüti. Sometime around midnight I finished saying my goodbyes and prepared for the trip home to Schaffhausen [some 25 miles north of Zurich]. Therefore I left the building and started out into the darkness. It was a clear, starry night, and I walked across the courtyard in the direction of Schmidrüti.

Naturally I looked closely at the sky and was on the lookout for any "traveling stars." When I had walked a little past the bend in the gravel road and just past the "charcoal kiln" [see map, No. 5], in which, earlier, wood and garden wastes were incinerated, I turned around as always to look towards the sky in the west.

From afar I could discern three various colored points, which moved along leisurely at some distance from one another and were flying in my direction. At first they were still very small, then they became ever larger the closer they approached. I could then also recognize that it had to be not a single object but three separate ones, because they were moving independently of each other. Their movements were also no longer as motionless and leisurely as before. They gently swung up and down, as if they were dancing on waves.

Naturally I observed their travel further, while I stood stationary. It was only a short moment until the three luminous objects were hovering directly above the main residence at Hinterschmidrüti. Yet, today I cannot say with absolute certainty at what altitude they hovered. It was nevertheless at least two hundred meters. In the darkness, more or less only the objects' lights could be seen and not their outlines.

Over the main residence they had suddenly stopped their travel and oscillated on the spot gently back and forth. These pendulum movements on the spot lasted only a few minutes before they suddenly again resumed traveling, and in the blink of an eye they shot up into the sky.

To be sure, this was for me a stirring moment; yet I have never troubled to find an explanation whether this involved Pleiadian/Plejaren ships or some foreign kind.
