This terrible DARKNESS
In July 1957 the French newspaper published a story that happened to 54-year-old wife, Mireille, a resident of the Provençal city of Arles. Mireille was an experienced, qualified nurse and her eagerly invited as a health visitor and caregivers to young children. In the city it was known as a quiet person, well-balanced character. But more surprisingly caused her story about the unusual event that happened to her in a summer day ...
July 16, 1957 around noon Madame Jeunet, as usual, went to the house of the family Cotillion, invited her to care for her newborn baby. Taking a pram with a child, the nurse went for a walk in the city park. It was a lovely sunny weather. Because of the heat, most residents spent their time on the river and the park at the time was almost deserted. Little Cotillion sleeping peacefully in a wheelchair, a nurse and settled with him on a bench in the shade of a large tree.
Suddenly, the light faded. Everything is shrouded in dense, absolutely impenetrable darkness. This was not the effect of sunstroke, when a man suddenly everything gets dark in the eyes, it was not a symptom of some other disease, as Madame Genet retains full and clear consciousness and well remember all the details of their condition.
Sleeping baby woke up and started crying loudly. Having found in the dark on the child's touch, the nurse grabbed him and hugged her tightly, trying to soothe. Around reigned complete darkness. Somewhere disappeared street noise, the smells of flowers and trees, birds voices. Madame Jeunet was, afraid to move.
As she thought this condition lasted no more than a quarter of an hour. Darkness vanished as suddenly as it appeared. It turned out that already come, starting to get dark. There was a sharp cold wind, lit lamps in the park. On the boulevard strolled a few warm-dressed couples
The nurse ran headlong with a carriage house to the cotillion. She met a frightened, tearful parents: it turns out, madam wife with a child no ... three days! They looked for the police and numerous volunteers, turning upside down the whole Arles, city park Beech Valenod searched by centimeter, but nothing, of course, was never found.
The gendarmerie Madame Jeunet was subjected to severe and prolonged questioning: what it can explain its three-day absence? But she could only tell about the darkness ...
Case in Arles is still among the most unusual and unexplained phenomena of the XX century. But this story - is not the only case of a meeting with a mysterious, all-consuming darkness.
April 2, 1904 an unusually thick, impenetrable darkness completely covered the metro station in London's Wimbledon, causing a stir among the many passengers and metro among staff. A few days later at the scene strictly scientific experiment was carried out, which aims to simulate the situation and find an explanation for what occurred. However, to the embarrassment of the skeptics could not recreate exactly the same darkness - still study participants could distinguish in the darkness of vague silhouettes of people and objects, see each other, we saw a moving subway train. The darkness is enveloping Wimbledon on April 2 was absolute darkness in which nothing can be seen, no ray of light - as if people and the station filled in thick black ink.
This case has brought to life a storm of scientific and pseudo-scientific speculation, but so far it remains unexplained. Meanwhile, soon even this mysterious and exciting the imagination faded before the new episode of the news about the origin of mysterious dark ~ this time she covered the ... the whole city with 50 thousand population!
March 7, 1911, about 16 hours on the town of Louisville, Kentucky, United States, dropped a thick, absolutely impenetrable darkness lasted about an hour. During this time, on the streets there were picture worthy of the pen of Dante. Later, numerous witnesses described in detail all the details of the event. It is a pity that it was impossible to take a picture of it!
Answers to questions about the nature of this suddenly occurring darkness there is still no. There are those who argue that the case of Satan, or the opposite - a sign of God. There are more or less rational version, but the science is still not able to explain this mysterious phenomenon. Perhaps we are dealing with a violation of space integrity, or interpenetration of different dimensions, and perhaps this phenomenon is associated with fluctuations in the electromagnetic field of the Earth, when the visible part of the spectrum of a sudden, for whatever reason, changes the frequency of vibration and changes its state, which is not able to register the human senses ... Who knows?
