The next instance of a UFO-type sighting happened when Caspian was once again being driven to his aunt and uncle's house in Fishbourne. It was about midday, and they had just crossed the bridge over Centurion Way, driving up Old Broyle Road on the B2178.
Suddenly, Caspian noticed an oval-shaped object fly over the road ahead of them and disappear behind the trees to his left as they sped past them. Its underside was dark, while the top of the object was a light silver-grey. He asked his grandmother if she'd also seen it, but she was completely focused on driving and hadn't been paying attention to what was passing by overhead; she'd only registered it as being some sort of plane.
Caspian added that the object was “car-sized”, and that it looked like it was travelling at about the same speed as they were (so possibly about 30mph). The thing that stood out to him the most was how brazen its presence in broad daylight had been – he says it's as though its operators didn't care about being seen!
Owl Dream and Hand Markings
By the end of 2018 Caspian was back at work with his uncle and sleeping better as a result of having had no further bedroom visitations from the floppy-eared beings, though he did experience a couple more dreams of note. He reported the first of them to me as follows:
“I also remembered another dream I forgot to mention yesterday, the final part of my experiences involving owls – I had it sometime in mid-late 2018. I can't remember much about the dream, except that at the end of it there was a reddish saw-whet owl standing in front of me, and it reached forward with one of its feet and pricked my right hand and wrist with its talons.
I was jolted out of sleep and went to the bathroom. When I turned on the light, I noticed four red dots on my hand and wrist that were exactly where I'd seen the owl's talons prick against me. I took a photo of the marks to show to mum [he reports that he did indeed send it to her], but unfortunately I deleted the photo the next morning, thinking there was no point in keeping it on my phone.
After I woke up again later that morning, I applied Doublebase Gel to the marks, and they had all practically disappeared by the end of the day. The most remarkable thing about it all was that at the time there were renovation works going on at the office building me and my uncle worked at, and that morning I noticed that they had bought in a barn owl doorstop to keep the door to the staircase up to our office open while they were working. When I got home later that day, I also found my grandmother's Christmas owl ornament hanging on one of the plants in my bedroom, and when I asked her about it she said that she just thought I'd want it in my room when she found it while tidying in the bedroom beside mine, because she knew I've always liked owls!”
Caspian says that he still has that ornament hanging on the door handle in his bedroom, since the plant his grandmother originally hung it on grew too large and had to be moved downstairs. The ornament is also reddish in colour, just like the owl he'd seen in his dream.
