27 year old Kelly Cahill, her husband & three children were driving home after a visit to a friend's house. This would be an agonizing trip into a world of entities that occupied space but were void of color as we know it. The Dandenong foothills was about to be an area etched in her mind forever, linked to one of the most famous abductions ever.
After midnight they noticed the lights of a rounded craft with windows around it. It silently hovered above the road. Different colored lights were clearly visible on the bottom of the craft. It was so close to the ground that Kelly thought she could see people through the window openings. As she began screaming to her husband what she was seeing, the craft zoomed off to their left, disappearing as quickly as it had made itself known.
Continuing on, with a renewed interest in the sky, they suddenly came upon a light, so bright they were practically blinded. Shading her eyes from the intense light with her hands over her eyes, Kelly asked her husband, What are you going to do? He, now frightened to death by the glowing presence before them, replied, I am going to keep on driving. Within what seemed only a moment, Kelly was now very relaxed, calmed by the disappearance of the intense, glowing light that had turned night into day.
The first words out of Kelly's mouth were, What happened, did I blackout? Her husband said nothing, as he had no answer. He cautiously drove his family home. Upon arrival Kelly could smell a foul odor, like vomit, and she suddenly felt as though something was missing from their drive home. Something was missing, an hour or so of their lives had vanished from her and her family's life.
That night as preparing for bed, she noticed a strange triangular mark on her navel, a mark she had never seen before. It must have been created early tonight. How? Why? And most importantly, by who? Kelly suffered from lethargy for the next 2 weeks, and was taken to the hospital on twice, one for severe stomach pain, and another for a uterine infection.
Soon she began to remember details of that night, and without any outside aid such as regressive hypnosis, or counseling. She recalled the object they had seen in a slightly different place than she first remembered. It was hovering in a gully, and was big. She estimated it at 150' in diameter. She could also recall that when the object was first spotted, her husband had stopped the car, both of them had gotten out of the car, and walked in the direction of the craft, without fear. It was if they were being subconsciously drawn to it.
To their surprise, they noticed another car stopped on the side of the road. As they walked down toward the craft, they saw a creature unlike either of them had ever seen before. It was black, not a black color but black as if all matter was removed where its presence was. Kelly would later describe it as not having a soul.
Her words for the alien were void of color, yet its shape was clearly discernible. The entity was taller than an average man, about 7' tall, she said, and its eyes were large like a flies, glowing red. After being spellbound by the being, she saw more of them. Heaps of them is how she described them as she stared into the open field.
They were out there in the field, beneath the immense flying craft. The beings seemed to congregate in small groups, and one group glided toward Kelly & her husband, covering a hundred yards in a seconds. Another group was approaching the other car which sat motionless near the hovering craft.
She had a sense that the creatures were evil. She clung to her husband, fighting the feeling of blacking out. Her great fear and dread would cause her to scream at the alien-looking entities to leave them alone. She remembered going unconscious, and then, she was back in their car.
As strange as this encounter seems, it was not without confirmation. The occupants in the other car would come forward and tell the same story, abduction, mind control, & embarrassing procedures. Kelly recalled through dreams the black alien stooping over her helpless, nude body like he was kissing her navel.
