Please take the time to read my entire story as it gets quite interesting. What I am writing is not for my personal satisfaction of pulling anyone's leg. I do not like telling this story because not even my family would believe nor would the families of the other three witnesses believe them, as well as it was a chilling event. I didn't report this for years simply because it had not crossed my mind however I am very interested in the unknown and believe in extraterrestrial existence. I swear to this story being absolutely true as i payed attention to the details as it happened. This, I imagine, is a very rare report.

Three friends and I were driving through a very rural area in north east texas. It was very late at night, probably 0330 as we were coming back from a party in a neighboring town. None of us were hallucinating or in an abnormal state of mind. We were listening to 99.5 the wolf, a country music station. With no prompting, the data on the screen of the car's "head unit" changed to slashes and the audio coming out of the speakers changed...The following is the best way I can describe what came out of the speakers. It was as if it was a recording of an interview with an astronaut. The music stopped following by a very short pause then, what started playing was an older man (i would guess by voice) talking about being on a NASA mission outside of our earth's atmosphere. During the said mission, the man recalled definately encountered what he referred to as alien aircraft (not UFOs) and that he and the others in his vessel could clearly see "them" out the window dogmatically.

This story the man was telling "played" for 5+ min.

As this was happening my three friends and I were silent at first, blankly looking at each other. I was sitting in the back seat and wanted to make sure the two in the front were not playing a joke on me. I leaned in the front seat and could see the Ipod in the car was clearly not plugged in nor was any other music or internet device. Then my friend that was driving the car (the owner) pushed the power button on the "head unit" firm enough that it should have shut off and absolutely nothing happened. Then he proceeded to turn the volume knob multiple turns in each direction and the volume did not change either. He repeated both power and volume actions again and still nothing happened. The volume was still playing at a loud enough level we could clearly hear the details.

We sat in awe for the approximate five to near ten minutes that this was "playing" over o! ur radio in the car. Nothing was around us as we were on a ro! ad surro unded by cut corn fields. Suddenly the interruption stopped and was followed by the same one or two second pause that stopped the music and then the music started playing again (different song obviously as 5+ min. had passed.)

The three friends in the car with me were not sketchy friends for I had known them for approximately ten years and still know them all. We have talked about the incident since and all have the exact same memory of the event. I really hope you take this report seriously for it was the oddest thing that has ever happened to me.

Feel free to email me back to tell me if you've had a report like this before or if you would like to ask me any questions about my story. Feel free to call me as long as it doesn't cost me money.
