Identical UFOs were seen and drawn on paper, half a World away…one by John in Eastern Nebraska and one by a tribesman out in the bush in South Africa
This article is a part of a contribution written in the book Eminent Discovery by Bob Teets in the late 1990s. (He is speaking about an incident that occurred when we were attending The Rocky Mountain Conference On UFO Investigation about 1989. Cynthia Hinds, a South African journalists was speaking on the stage.)
‘So, here I was in Laramie, Wyoming listening to a South African journalist and sitting next to an American fluidics engineer who had documented his lifelong UFO experiences in a series of remarkable drawings. Cynthia Hind’s voice seemed about to hit a crescendo, signaling she was coming to a dramatic part of her presentation.
She explained that her interview with a South African tribesman had culminated with the man retrieving a piece of charcoal from a previous night’s campfire and drawing for her a likeness of the UFO he had encountered some few months previously out in the bush. “And here is a representation of his drawing,” she said, placing a transparency on the overhead projector.
I sucked in a deep breath.
The one in my hand depicted a saucer with hinged, tripod legs. The one on the screen was identical in every way, even including the shading.
The drawing in my hand was John Foster’s. The one on the screen was from a tribesman, half a world away.
Had John Foster ever met Cynthia Hind or seen the tribesman’s drawing or, in a most far-out proposition, ever met the tribesman?
No, Foster said.
How was it that I had just then picked up one drawing, out of a stack of at least several dozen, which exactly, precisely matched the one on the screen?
It was, for me, a deciding moment. I was on to something, and all my journalist’s instincts were reverberating within me like bells. It was truly the start of an adrenaline rush that would propel me through several years of UFO research and interviews with some 3,000 UFO “experiencers” all over the country. None would be so intriguing, so absolutely riveting, bizarre, far-out, instructive, challenging and representative of the entire UFO phenomenon as John Foster’s incredible story, though.’
