I've attached a short essay describing the unusual effects reported by close up UFO witnesses. There seems to be something directly influencing the consciousness of anyone in close proximity to a UFO.
An the eerie silence is consistently reported by close encounter experiencers, but what also gets described is a bizarre warping of reality, as if their consciousness was being altered or distorted.
The term Oz Factor was coined in 1983 by British UFO researcher Jenny Randles to describe this strange, but commonly reported, effect of the proximity to an unknown craft. This recommended essay is posted below in a one-click PDF reader.
