The Ariel School incident occurred in 1994 at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, when some 62 elementary school children reported that an unidentified aerial craft landed at the school and that alien creatures emerged from the craft and engaged with students. Nearly all of the children, none of whom had a history of knowledge of UFOs, presented the same story with remarkably consistent details. In the years since the incident, none of the students have retracted their statements or disavowed their experience. Cynthia Hind, a MUFON coordinator for Africa, interviewed the students the day after the encounter and asked them draw pictures of the incident. Dr. John E Mack, a Pulitzer prize-winning author and professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, interviewed the children following the incident. Mack, who had an interest in alien phenomena and wrote the bestselling book Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens, said that the students were left with the impression that the aliens wanted to express the risks facing the earth’s environment. One student, Francis, said that he was warned “about something that’s going to happen,” and added that “pollution mustn’t be.” Another student, Emma, said; “I think they want people to know that we’re actually making harm on this world and we mustn’t get too technologed.” The students involved were interviewed as adults by the producers of the Ariel School Phenomenon, a documentary. Their video statements as children and adults are remarkably compelling and credible.
