Cover by Peter Poast Publications with Photo by Junior Cruz

Similar to what newspapers in the 19th Century did the will publish a chapter a day from the book Deceptions in the Air. This fictional book is a blend of reality and conspiracy with a mix of Biblical Prophecy. My hope is that you enjoy the story, while it puts a desire in your heart to seek Truth.

Chapter 5: The Sighting

"Bri,” Jack said nervously and excitedly, trying to bring Bri back to reality as he placed her bag into the car. “What was that? Did you see that?”


“Did you see that? Did you see the image in the sky?” he questioned Bri as he tried getting her to get into the car.

Coming back into the present, Bri pushed Jack aside and stood up outside of the car to get a better view of the night sky that was now turning from pitch black to a strange shade of grey and orange.

“Oh dear Lord. They’re doing it. They are actually getting ready to do it.”

Bri yelled at Jack to give her his camera, but Jack just stood still in awe at what they were seeing happen over the ocean. Frozen, he watched the strange objects whisk back and forth across the sky. Bri climbed into the car and grabbed the camera herself. Quickly removing the lens cap, she began shooting picture after picture.

“What is it? It’s not that…?” Jack said stunned stopping right in mid- sentence.

“Project Blue Beam!” Bri said taking the camera away from her eye so she could actually see what was happening to the clouds.

“No, no it’s… it’s just contrails and lights of planes!” Jack said.

“No, it’s more than that… Jack let’s get out of here. We need to get somewhere to download these pictures.”

Bri quickly climbed into the car as though the images she had just seen fly over her head were an everyday occurrence, nothing strange, nothing abnormal about the whole experience.

Jack, on the other hand, was still standing next to the car stiff as statue looking into the sky.

“Jack!” she said sternly before jumping out of the car to join him on the driver’s side. “They’re not real...Trust me. Have I ever lied to you?”

She paused and stopped a second to look at what was now three strange images hovering over the ocean. “It’s okay… sort of,” she softly added as she tapped Jack on the shoulder to get his attention.

Jack had a hard time getting his eyes away from the bizarre images that zoomed from one end of the horizon and then zoomed back to hover for a minute or two.

“How do you know they’re not real?” he asked, while still keeping his eyes on the mysterious orange and grey lights fading in and out as they hung in the sky not moving.

“Just get in the car. I’ll tell you more once we get out of here. I don’t want to say anything while we’re still standing out here. Anymore, I never know who’s listening.”

Jack climbed in and started the engine, hoping that Bri knew what she was talking about.

“Bri, I really don’t want to get abducted by aliens.”

Once Jack turned on the car lights, the two noticed the lights from the strange flying objects had faded away, leaving the sky a peculiar grayish white color.

“They’re gone!” Jack said.

Leaning back into the car seat and taking a deep breath, Jack was able to relax as he turned to look at her.

“Bri, you’re not crying.”

Surprised herself, Bri slowly turned to look at Jack. She tried hard to smile. “Yeah, I’m not.”

Jack put the car in gear and headed towards the highway. Bri turned her head toward the passenger window, while biting her upper lip to hold back the tears that were beginning to fill her eyes once again.

“Please God, I don’t want to cry anymore,” she silently begged as she closed her eyes and faded back into time.
