60 plus schoolchildren witness a UFO land and extraterrestrial beings emerge: the “Ariel” phenomenon

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In 1994, more than 60 school children in Ruwa, Zimbabwe witnessed the landing of a spacecraft by their schoolyard. Multiple beings came out of the craft and were apparently seen by the children.

  • Reflect On:

    All of these children told the same story, drew the same pictures and received the same telepathic messages. Many are still speaking about the incident today. It impacted and changed their lives forever.

What Happened: One of the most interesting UFO witness cases that exists within the lore of the phenomenon comes from Ruwa, Zimbabwe in September of 1994. The encounter took place at Ariel Primary School and involved more than 60 school children who were out playing at recess. All of the children, who were in elementary school at the time, describe seeing multiple hovering objects that one would describe as “spaceships” or “UFOs” as well as multiple beings exiting the craft.

What’s fascinating about this story is that all of the children, who were interviewed by many, including Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack, told the exact same story. They did so in such a precise manner and appeared to be completely sincere about their experience, something that’s not hard for children to do. Another remarkable fact about this case is that the children’s drawings of the objets and the beings were extremely consistent with one another. They were, according to Mack, clearly telling a story as if it had actually happened, they believed what they were saying and there was no evidence of psychosis or delusion among the children.

Below are some remarks from the teachers, taken from some interesting and old footage that’s been uploaded to Youtube. You can also see a few interviews with the children with John Mack and others at that time as well. What’s interesting is that many of these children are still speaking about the incident today. There’s an example of that at the end of the article.

I was able to find a few videos with the children from 1994 on Youtube here, here, and here.

They came running up here in such a panic, and even if we staged it they could have not all run together like that. They came up here like a living snake, we were in a staff meeting and we just heard them screaming and screaming…A child cannot make that up. – Teacher (From Youtube videos linked above)

I was very skeptical in the beginning as well, I believed that they had seen something, but I wasn’t prepared to accept that it was anything supernatural, but I think the consistency of what’s been going on indicates that it was more than I was prepared to admit at the beginning.” – Teacher (From Youtube videos linked above)

Some of the children were asked what they got from the experience. One of them answered that they were here to tell us that “we don’t look after the planet properly.” This is interesting, having been a researcher in the field more than 15 years I can tell you that this type of theme and communication among those who have claimed to have had contact with beings from other worlds is quite common. The children were quite shaken and left with some horrible feelings and visions that our planet may be destroyed because of our actions. One of the children in the videos linked above stated that “all the trees would go down and nobody would be able to breath.”

As mentioned above, many of the children still speak about the incident today, many of them will be featured in an upcoming  documentary currently in the works, but it has yet to be released. The film is supposed to cover  the story of everyone involved — the students, teachers, investigators, BBC Bureau Chief Tim Leach, Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack — and includes never-before-seen interviews of the children shortly after the encounter, as well as interviews with them more than two decades later.

Below is a brief video of one of the children, Emily Trim years later speaking about the encounter. Here’s’ a video with Salma Siddick in 2018, another one of the children (at the time) from the 1994 encounter.  You can find a few more clips with some of the students as they’ve aged, here. We will have to wait for the documentary to release for more.

The Takeaway: Extraterrestrial contact experiences among children, adults, and people from all walks of life and various professions is and has been a common theme for a very long time. For years this has been attributed to some type of “psychosis”, which is interesting because even if one of these experiences is true it has tremendous implications. We’ve come a long way since 1994, and now the existence of UFOs has been verified and confirmed, with many people with “credible” backgrounds alluding to the idea that some of these objects are most likely extraterrestrial in origin. The topic is receiving mainstream attention from establishment media mouthpieces like CNN and the New York Times.

All of this mainstream media disclosure seems to be quite rapid and it comes after many decades of what seems to have been a ridicule campaign that tossed this topic in the “conspiracy theory” bucket. I am concerned about mainstream media and “official” government disclosure of this phenomenon. This topic is quite large and vast and has tremendous implications, what we will receive from governments and mainstream media will most likely be a heavily sanitized version of disclosure as well as an attempt to control the masses perception of the phenomenon.

In my opinion, you are better off doing some independent research, and investigating cases like this one among the thousands of others. If you do, you will find astonishing corroboration and consistency among those who have claimed to have some sort of experience with beings from other worlds.

This topic has the potential to expand human consciousness and initiate a major paradigm shift for humanity. That being said, we have a lot of things we need to do here on planet Earth so we can change the human experience and make it a better one for all life that resides here, and mother Earth herself.

I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation.
