Aged about 5 or 6, one evening in bed, she saw a small black scruffy dog in the passageway. That dog had died long before our daughter was lusted into existence.
I loved her, now she scares me! LOL
Remind me not to tell you about my out-of-body experience.
I saw a leopard in Surrey. Decades later, a magazine about mysterious phenomena reported many similar sightings in that exact town and time-frame.
My dad had a premonition about a bandy-legged guy declaring a certain name had won. But next day there was no such horse at the race-track. At the last minute, my dad discovered the name referred to an owner of a horse. He bet money on the relevant horse and won. there was no time to share the tip with his friends.
A friend was in the bush late one evening. He saw a tube of bright light like a pillar suspended in mid air. He shot at it. It shattered into thousands of pieces. Then it reassembled back together. He has no explanation.
Why was his first instinct to shoot it?
I did not ask. He died so I cannot find out.

There are more centre-pivot irrigation systems in WA's north than the rest of the country, as pastoralists attempt to drought-proof the region.
From an engineering and economy point of view, I've never thought those center pivot things were very good.
A recent DPIRD trial estimated that, including approvals and infrastructure, a 40-hectare centre pivot could cost as much as $1.25 million and take at least seven years to see a return on investment.
