Christopher Bledsoe maintains that his UFO experiences have been investigated by both NASA and the CIA.
The strangeness began in 2007 when the former construction mogul – now 62 – was down on his luck and had ventured into the woods in North Carolina with thoughts of ending his own life.
Upon nearing Cape Fear Lake, however, he saw something that would change his perspective on everything – two mysterious orbs hovering around 150ft above the top of the hill.
“I got within 40 feet at the top of the hill, I cried out, ‘whoever’s up there, help me,’ and I never expected to see what I saw,” he said.
Remarkably, he maintains that these orbs have since visited his home every day for years, prompting interest from both NASA and the CIA who have spent time investigating his story.
Bledsoe also alleges that he was invited to participate in a study of ‘non-Earth materials’, with researcher Tim Taylor placing a piece of anomalous metal in his hand to look for a reaction.
“They were looking for a reaction, and I had one of the only ones they had ever seen,” he said.
“Taylor said he’s never seen anything like it.”
It’s unclear what became of the research or whether the sightings of orbs over his home have ever been definitively corroborated.
What is certain, however, is that he remains adamant to this day that every word of his story is true.
