Bright Light Night


“Be careful with the fast moving lights at night, always look-up to the sky!!… RRUUUNNN!!!”

Back in 1989 my friend and I spent the weekend at her family house located at Valle de Bravo in Mexico, right next to the lake.

I remember it was around 10:00PM and the sky was clear with no clouds and no moon. The stars were very bright and we were sitting facing the lake, a really nice view in a perfect cold night.

After a few minutes we saw a very bright light in the sky like a very big star. At first we didn’t pay much attention to it, we kept talking and talking. I don’t remember what we were talking about but after a few minutes I started to wonder what was that light, it was still there. I’m sure it wasn’t an airplane because the light was standing still exactly in the same place for more than 5 minutes. Of course it wasn’t a helicopter because there was no sound at all and the night was very quiet. A balloon? No, time passed and the light was exactly at the same position now for more than 20 minutes or so.

Suddenly the light moved toward us a little bit, very slowly, then, it moved very fast to the left and then disappeared into the horizon. “–Que onda?” was my first expression. “–What was that?“, she asked. “–I have no idea!“, I replied.

Today, I still have questions about that bright light my friend and I saw at that night in Valle de Bravo.

The truth is that I’m a little skeptical about UFOs flying our skies. Few years after the “bright light night” event I read Carl Sagan’sThe Demon-Haunted World” book and I pretty much agree with his point of view. Although I have to admit that I’m still searching for real hard facts about UFOs.

The above event was the inspiration for my music improvisation (Intento-51) “Electronic Abduction at 51” It is the soundtrack for a very short sci-fi story about a young couple in the field loving each other when suddenly they see some bright lights in the sky approaching very fast towards them. They get scared and their first reaction is to run to hide under an abandoned train wagon. Then, they thought the bright lights already left and decided to go out and leave that place as soon as possible. Just few steps later the bright lights appeared on top of them leaving them surprisingly frozen with no chance to run, and exposed to abduction:

-Look!
What are those lights?!

-Oh!!! NO!!!…
RUUUNNN!!!…

-RUUNNN!!!…
JUUUMMPPPP!!!…

-RUUNNN!!!…
RUUNNN!!!…
RUUNNN!!!…

-HIDE!!!…
SLIDE DOWN UNDER THE WAGON!!!…
GO!…
GO!!!…

-Oh GOD!!!…
SAFE!…

-WHAAATTTT??!!!…
NOOOO!!!!!….

-AARGGHHH…
SHHHTTTT!!!!…

For best performance use your headphones and turn-off the lights.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Peace.
