Floating Eyes


When he was young, my grandpa he was a wild man, he drank all the time and cussed. Him and his cousin Wade were going coon hunting on a old road that they lived on. It was out in the middle of the woods. As you know, it's dark when you go coon hunting. Well, my grandpa and Wade were driving my grandpa's car. It was a piece of junk! It quit and they were in the middle of the woods, trying to work on the car. The only light they had was a lighter, it was almost out of fluid. My papaw was mad and cussing and Wade told him there was something coming up here. My papaw told him to shut up and to hold the lighter still. But Wad dropped the lighter and jumped in the car. My papaw turned around and saw two yellow eyes floating toward the car. He yelled and jumped in the car with Wade. The eyes circled the car over and over. This is true, my papaw was a Christian and wouldn't lie.

I've been searching for a story like this! FINALLY! Same colour as the ones I seen as well. I come from a First Nation's community in Manitoba, Canada called Bloodvein First Nation. As an Aboriginal person I've been accustomed to hearing legends and stories my whole life. I've had my share of experiences with the paranormal but when it comes to the surrounding woods in my northern isolated community I feel at home. I truly feel at one with nature. But since I'm an adult now I can say I've seen a couple unexplainable things in the woods up there as well as heard unexplainable things. But specifically I can relate to this story about floating eyes. This isn't the only thing I've seen as I've said but my experience goes like this: I was just a young boy and me and my cousin were wandering around the trails in the woods, taking a "shortcut" that I was familiar with through the woods to get to another part of the community. We were just exiting from the trail and the edge of the woods reaching our destination and walking towards the road when I just happened to get a weird feeling, I remember looking back towards the trail in the thick bush of trees we came from and there they were, a bit higher off of the ground than my height, two yellow floating eyes watching me and cousin but not leaving the woods, just floating there at the edge above ground in mid daylight! This was the afternoon. I can't really remember why but I remember being more confused than scared, but the fear of not knowing was still there, I put my cousin on my back like a piggy back ride and ran towards the road. I will never forget seeing them, walking away from the woods looking back to see those piecing bright eyes, as if they were following us for the whole trail. Now like I said this was broad daylight, and they were floating above the trail with no branches to support them. I believe years went by and as a young boy I didn't give too much thought to what I had seen but the memory was there and one day my family were telling stories about their experiences in our community. I piped up and told them about my experience of the floating yellow eyes and I received more support than I thought I would, turns out I'm not the only one in my community who has seen them, my mother and one or two of my uncles seen those same yellow floating eyes when they were teenagers while playing at one of the most isolated places in our community, the garbage dump, they said they saw the exact same yellow floating eyes. I don't remember the nature of eyes and what they did. But these eyes are eyes and nothing more, broad daylight I seen them, no animal or orbs, they were distinct eyes. Thanks for sharing! This is an experience I won't forget, and I'm glad I can share the same experience with others.

This sounds more like a UFO sighting than it does a ghost one. Not unbelievable, just different.
