A Surprise

On Saturday, the 9th of May, 1998 (during the lunch break of the Passive members of the General Assembly), Rita Keoughan and I were up around 1 pm on the upper part of the road at the Semjase Silver Star Center, 8495 Schmidrüti, and were having a cheerful time together. We both are Passive members of Canada, and traveled specially to the Passive Group annual general meeting the day before. While we talked, I said to Rita that I would like to have a photo of this place with both of us in it, and so I kept looking for someone who could take the desired picture. At this moment I saw Klaus Wenz, a German Passive member, on the street walking in the direction of Hamberg-Sitzberg. At our call Klaus joined us and was happy to take a picture of Rita and me. Rita gave Klaus her camera and with this he took the desired picture, whereupon I also gave Klaus my own camera, with which he again took a picture, so that Rita and I each had our own photo. When we were occupied with the photographing, we saw Bernhard Kellner, another German Passive member, walking along the same road where Klaus had just been walking. Rita immediately called to Bernhard and so he joined us and at our request took another picture with our cameras, in which now Klaus, Rita and I were to be seen. For fun, I said to Rita, "All we need now is a ship in the background," and they all laughed at my joke.

After about a month Rita excitedly called me, back in Canada, and told me that her pictures had been developed and enlarged, and that she believed, in the picture that Bernhard took, a ship appears in the background. Quickly I looked at my photos of the same scene, but nothing, however, could be seen. Rita said that she would send me the image via email. Two minutes later I had the email with Rita's image and saw a small disk-shaped "cloud" in it. On my image it was not to be found, however, only on Rita's picture. I thought it impossible that a cloud could appear and disappear within only thirty seconds. At first I was delighted over the image, but I was uncertain, because I know that many people imagine they see UFOs, even when none exist. Rita explained to me that one of her friends could analyze this picture.

Two weeks later Rita sent me an email with the image analysis. This showed that the supposed "cloud" might not be such because its center was very obviously metallic.

Again I was delighted, but before I accepted what the analysis showed me, I wanted Billy to see the image, so that he could confirm for us that we had actually photographed a ship. I was much surprised that the one picture showed no "cloud," while on the next image taken only seconds later, it was yet so clearly and distinctly to be seen.

Rita sent Klaus a copy of the photo, because he was also pictured in it and she wanted to bring him a piece of joy. He brought with him this photo on Saturday, the 8th of May, 1999, on the occasion of the Passive Group annual general meeting and showed it in the evening to Billy, who, on the basis of the enlargement, immediately confirmed to him that the alleged "cloud" was obviously a Pleiadian/Plejaren beamship.

When Billy told me this the next day, I jumped up excitedly with joy on how my secret wish, which I had so spontaneously dressed in a joke, had been fulfilled so unexpectedly that I myself now, I felt, was the confirmation, which for me was as if the heavens had opened and our alien friends had given me a personal gift.

The 9 May 1998 photographed object indeed involves – like further inquiry by the Pleiadians/Plejaren showed -- a beamship which belonged to the Pleiadian-Plejaren Federation and was in use by Ptaah and Florena. Regarding this, Florena stated the following, after she had examined the film negative in accordance with its possible interpretations and after two hours of work:

Florena... The negative is not very good in terms of the object over the tree, but I was able with our devices to sharpen everything, so that the aircraft was clearly recognizable. It is undoubtedly our aircraft with which Ptaah and I were in your area on May 9th, 1998, at 13:00. We did not then use the aircraft that I usually use, but one well suited for our duties but not our associated techniques; it therefore exhibits some exterior differences.
