FROME (SOMERSET : ENGLAND)
An elderly man in a village near Frome was at his cottage when he saw an object which skirted the trees, and land at the far edge of a clearing, hovering, with a swaying motion, about 1.5m above the ground. Two figures wearing helmets descended from the machine and walked with a stiff gait to a point 35m to the left of the witness, about 60m from the machine. Thinking it was some new invention of the air force, the man walked towards the aviators, whom he saw were fairly tall, wore dark grey close fitting clothing which gave off a plastic sheen, rounded black, plastic helmets on their heads. One was shaking his head, while the other muttered. When the witness got within 20m, one of the beings raised a gloved hand, and they both disappeared “like ghosts”. Looking round he saw that the craft was surrounded by a sort of mustard coloured vapour, in which movement could be seen. From this vapour a light flashed upwards so fast that no details could be seen. The witness later found that his heartbeat was unusually strong.

A professional secretary was driving on a rural road near her home when she noticed the area was brilliantly illuminated. She first thought that her car headlights were on full, but when she switched them off she realised that the light was coming from a luminous object that hovered right over her car, which she could see through the rear view mirror and side windows, brightly lighting up the surrounding area. The object paced the car for 10-15 minutes, during which time woman found that her car slowed down and she was unable to accelerate and experienced a loss of steering control. She felt that the object had control of her car. The next day the car radio was full of static and the speedometer was malfunctioning. As the object took off at the top of the rise she could see that it resembled an inverted mushroom with a short stem on top, a uniform yellow glow, with two bright white, and several smaller lights underneath. The women reported several subsequent mechanical failures in the car.

The balls and sphere returned to the family of June 15 1966. The farmer had gone out to check on the animals, when he suddenly saw one of the spheres not more than 50m away, about 3m from the house. He decided to try to get behind it, but when he reached the gate it was waiting for him. It followed him for about 60m and then at the entrance to a narrow path blocked his way. The farmer returned to the house and called his son. They saw six spheres and the large shell, giving off a beam of very concentrated light, which lit up the room when it shone in it. This beam was turning round like a beacon. The men were too afraid to venture outside. On this shell were three projections on each side, onto which the balls returned. The balls were about 1.2m across. Eventually the whole spectacle just vanished. The next evening at 2120 the son saw a green-blue light at ground level in a field. He was joined by his father and together they again saw the shell.

(AVEYRON : FRANCE)
The son saw the shell land near the farmhouse and drove towards it, preceded by the balls. He got within 30m of this shell, which seemed to be taller than the trees, about 13m high and hovering about 2m, above the ground. A maroon halo surrounded its top, the main body being brilliant white. When he opened the car door, the object became very bright, leaned to an angle of 45 degrees, emitted a whistling sound and took off. The witness then saw another ball in front of him and followed it at 70kph. Then his engine stalled, lights went out etc. and he saw a disc shaped object coming from the North West. This thing stopped about 20m away about 3-4m above the meadow. 

It was whitish yellow, the size of a Peugeot 404, with a red light in the rear. On top were two domes in which he saw two occupants wearing green trimmed white overalls. These cabins were lit by a green light. When the man tried to open his car door he was struck by a wave of heat and immobilised. A signpost nearby was vibrating. The object then took off with a whistling sound, similar to but less piercing than that given off by the shell, rose to 40-50 and then swooped down again close to the ground and took off again to the east. As the object moved away the heat faded and the car’s equipment returned to normal. The witness later suffered periods of intense and sudden sleepiness and night paralysis, had dreams in which men dressed in red holding a book were urging him to write in it. On one occasion he arrived at an investigator’s house to discuss the incidents only to find he was unable to talk.

Shortly the thing turned toward him and presented itself as a cigar shaped object with amber windows, with a flashing red light to the right and two brilliant white lights in front, these lights apparently being on protrusions on the object. It was now so large that he compared it to a grapefruit at arm’s length. He went to look for witnesses and was joined by Mrs Manry, a former missionary. She saw the thing swoop low over her home and the hill behind it. The thing was the size of a 20cm wide dinner plate at arm’s length, projecting lights down, yellow in the centre, white at the edges, and making a purring sound.

The couple drove on to get a better view, but by the time they had the area in view again the thing had disappeared. The observation lasted about 3-5 minutes.

FREETOWN (INDIANA : USA)
Francis Bedel Jnr (23) of Portland was driving on State Hw 135 about 8km north of Freetown when a brilliant glowing white light darted into his field of vision. It hovered over the road for a few seconds, allowing Francis to see that it was saucer shaped with multi-coloured flashing lights and then slowly reversed its course. Francis was so engrossed in watching the thing that he crashed his car, which was badly damaged. The state police who investigated confirmed that Francis was sober. At about the same time and place Mr and Mrs Phil Patton of Freetown encountered a brightly illuminated discoid object that moved along the highway in front of their car, 30m away and 30m above the road. The description was similar to Bedel’s; a circular object, the apparent size of a small house with brilliant red lights and flashing white and yellow lights along its side and bottom. After about 30 seconds it took off in a flash.

CHARLESTON (WEST VIRGINIA : USA)
Tad Jones (38) of Dunbar was driving to the appliance store he managed in Cross Lanes, along Rte 64, about 10km outside Charleston when he noticed a large object blocking the road ahead of him. He first assumed that it was a vehicle used by highway repair men, but as he drew closer, he saw that it was a large metal sphere, hovering about 1.2m above toad. In the broad daylight he got a good look at a dull aluminium coloured sphere, 6m in diameter, from the bottom of which were attached four legs terminating with castor like wheels. On the side of its upper part of the sphere was a window 24cm in diameter. Underneath this was a propeller that was moving slowly. On its top were two antenna like projections. The propeller began to spin rapidly as the object took off. Later investigations found strange footprints at the site. Jones received threatening notes and later had a curious encounter with a mysterious “linesman” at the same spot where he had seen the object.

MILAN (MICHIGAN : USA)
High school freshman Reed Thompson was in his home on Hickory Lane due to a half day holiday when his attention was caught by a a rumbling sound like that of a train. Looking out he saw a light outside. He then saw that it was a silvery disc, about 2.1m diameter, 1.65m thick, with small portholes, moving at walking speed 6m above the ground. It seemed to float along, following the contours of the ground. Reed took several photographs, of which one came out. Later trees in its path died. On an April day in 1973 the now adult Reed was visited, at his auto parts store, by two strange beings, who spooked his normally fierce dog. One was a 2.1m tall, very thin, man, wearing a hat; the other very short (under 1.5m) thin woman. Both wore winter clothes despite the warm day, had “plastic” like skin. They asked about his 1967 experience in odd monotones, and who demanded the photographs in imperious tones. An employee, looking out, saw their car was a 1969 Buick with no interior. When Reed drove away from work the visitors followed him in this car. When he reached the garage he was visiting, the strangers were disturbed by an arc lamp and they and their car disappeared.

METHUEN (MASSACHUSETTS : USA)
Three teenage girls, Kimberley Lodge, Ellen Kenney and Janice Shafer were driving to a baseball game in Kimberley’s car on their way to pick up Juan Sierpina, on a lonely street bordered by woods and fields. On reaching the top of a hill they were surprised to see a string of 9 or 10 bright glowing red lights moving over a field ahead to the left at about 150-200m altitude and about 120-150m away. They wondered if it was a helicopter but as they rapidly closed with the thing, the car engine, lights and radio failed. The object had now begun to swing on its axis, showing multi-coloured lights. Kim and Janice were able to see that the thing was hovering 30-100m, away apparently over a house. It consisted of four glowing red lights that made a perfect trapezoid, with two red lights on the top, two on the bottom. These lights seemed to be on the surface of a dark object, and in their vicinity they highlighted a metallic surface and the girls gathered that they were viewing a bowl shaped contraption, larger than a house. During this time the car’ generator panel lamp was dimly pulsating on and off. After a couple of minutes the object started moving slowly and then it shot away at terrific speed. Less that 5km away Arthur Michelsen, his daughter and her friend, while out driving, saw a pattern of lights in the sky.

Susan (17), Tanya (14) Kushner and their friend Marianne Williamson (16) were having a pyjama party when all three saw a light shimmering through the closed bedroom curtains. Suddenly these parted of their own volition and a small triangular object, hovering a metre of so from the house, beamed in a painfully intense pink light. When the triangle moved opposite the second window, the curtains there also parted, the light becoming brighter. As the girls moved to flee their room, they became paralysed and unable to cry out. After manoeuvring for a while the light vanished, and the girls were now able to move, though they suffered from a weakness and dizziness that lasted for an hour. The previous night at 2330hrs. the girls and Mrs Kushner had seen a brilliant pink disc manoeuvre above a nearby ridge. A week later the family were questioned by a mysterious “government official”.

A 32 year old civilian Harold Lenz, driving to work in his 1964 Chevy had to stop and inspect the vehicle when the engine stalled. Only then did he observe an intense light to his right coming closer. He saw it land on the road, and locked himself in his vehicle. The craft was 25m diameter, 10m high and settled on a tripod landing gear. Something similar to an elevator came down from it, and a man of medium height, dressed in blue coveralls “with something like a glass fishbowl on his head” seemed to check something and left.

SOUTH ASHBURNHAM (MASSACHUSSETS : USA)
Betty Ann Andreasson was in the farmhouse with her parents, Waino and Eva Aho, and her children Becky (11), James (10), Mark (9), Scott (7), Todd (6), Ronnie (4) and Cindy (3), while her husband was in hospital following a car crash. Betty was working in the kitchen, while the children were watching TV with their grandparents, when suddenly the lights went out, the house was flooded by a red orange pulsating glow and everything went still, as if in a vacuum. Waino went to the kitchen window and saw a group of strange looking creatures which were hopping like grasshoppers. Under hypnotic regression in 1977 Betty recalled that Becky, looking into the kitchen from the dining room, had seen a dark silhouette shape bobbing in front of the light shine through the window. Shortly afterwards all the family except Betty became paralysed and oblivious. 4 beings seemed to enter through the closed kitchen door in a jerky motion. One was taller than the rest, but otherwise they were identical, with grey skins, outsized pear shaped heads with wrap around eyes, scar like mouths and just holes for noses and ears. They wore dark blue shiny close fitting uniforms with an emblem of a bird with outstretched wings. They had three-digit hands which were enveloped in gloves. There were four beings in all. The taller leader seemed to tell her that his name was Quazgaa. Betty gave them a Bible which they seemed to multiply and they gave her a blue book in return.

It appears that Becky awoke again and saw this scene. Betty felt strangely hypnotised and followed the beings out through the closed door and, floating above the ground, went to an oval object, with a raised central portion, sitting in the back yard. She was taken into a sort of bubble, then stood in a room for some time before being taken through a hatch into something like a decontamination and changing room where she changed into a white garment. She was then taken into a brightly lit room where she was laid on a flat table and given a medical during which she felt isolated and helpless, and as though she was being treated as a guinea pig. Needles were stuck in her naval and up her nose, and a sort of large eye on a machine examined her body. She then got dressed again, before being fastened into a closed chair on a track, which was filled with pulsating liquid. From there she was led by hooded beings through a dark stone tunnel into a realm with a red atmosphere. There she saw strange creatures with eyes on stalks coming out of their bodies and with no heads crawling over the place. She was then taken to a starkly beautiful city with fantastic crystalline structures, pyramids and something like a sphinx. She was then taken through the crystals to a place of searing heat and light, where she had a vision of a phoenix in the fire. When the fire died the phoenix was replaced by something like a fat worm. A voice which she identified as God called her to its service. She was returned to the craft in much the same way as she arrived, where she was given another mystical discourse by Quazgaa. They then returned to the house, the creatures carrying white spheres. She was then put to bed by the beings. As she lay in bed she heard a whirring noise coming from Becky’s room. Both she and Becky later looked at the blue book but after a few days it vanished.

RIACHUELO nr TRES ESTEROS (OSORNO : CHILE)
Mr C F C a well known and respected engineer from Osnorno was out for a stroll in the woods, when, suddenly, while sitting on a tree trunk in a clearing, he was dazzled by a brilliant flash of light like a magnesium flare. Shortly afterward as he was about to leave he observed a very bright light nearby, and on approaching found a rust coloured object 33m diameter, with no visible openings, suspended close to the ground, and felt a gentle warmth coming from it. Suddenly it shot about 1m to the left, as it did so a projection came out then rapidly retracted. A being appeared then appeared below the craft, as if materialising out of thin air. He was 1.5 m tall, wearing a tight fitting one piece, creaseless transparent suit. His movements and gestures were human, but his head, hands and feet were extremely pale, he had long hair, a prominent jaw, a flattened or even non existent nose. His arms seemed glued to his body. The witness was too terrified to speak or move, and his body felt stiff, as if he were riveted to the spot. Suddenly the entity vanished and the craft began to grow larger, assuming an incandescent red colour and emitting a powerful violet light, but with no increase in sound or heat. The object then rose straight up and vanished. The witness fled. Next day he returned to the spot, but was unable to find any traces. As a result of the incident the witness fell ill.

A few minutes later Alex saw, in the open centre of The Dell, a little blue man, with a tall hat and a beard, stood upright. He called the other boys and they all raced towards the stranger 20m away. As they approached the little man disappeared “in a puff of smoke”. The boys continued to search and saw the being on two more occasions. On the third occasion he was back in the original position, and they heard a foreign sounding babble of voices as if he were communicating with invisible companions. The boys approached cautiously and were undecided what to do until their teacher’s whistle called them back to school. They described the being as 90 cm tall, wearing a 60 cm high hat resembling a brimless bowler. The being was surrounded by a grey blue glow obscuring detail. however they could make out two round eyes, a small flat triangle in place of a nose, that he was wearing a one piece garment with a belt around his waist, on which was a black box 15 cm square. His arms seemed short and close to the chest. The beard appeared to divide and run down each side of his chest.

KNOX CITY (MISSOURI : USA)
Mrs Enid Campbell (43) and her sons Gene (18) and George (14) were watching TV in the living room of their two story farm house 6.5km south west of Knox City when George called his mother and brother to look at the unusual size of the rising moon. A few minutes later after the boys had gone to bed Mrs Campbell looked again and saw this “moon” had not risen as it should. It was a spherical object the colour of a white light bulb, surrounded by a pink red glow or mist. Around the centre was a thin ring with several openings, about 10 cm diameter and 30 cm apart. This ring was shiny gold and extended below the edge of the sphere. Enid observed these details as the object crossed a field just to the east of the house, then toward the house, passing over a 1.2m high fence. It stopped, almost touching the ground, less than 1m from the house. In the lower right hand quarter of the sphere was a control panel in which two occupants could be seen. One was seated at the panel, the other was standing behind him. A sort of lever could be seen on top, but no other features could be distinguished in the yellow light of this control room. The beings could only be seen in silhouette, but they appeared to be of human shape and dressed in shiny, silvery “wet suits”. After briefly hovering, the object took off for the Southeast. She called her sons, who were in time to see the object as a sphere, gaining altitude and moving away. As it hovered, two smaller, white, spheres approached from the north, and entered through an opening in the lower left quarter. The ring then gave off “fiery fountains” of a red coloured material which fell a short distance and disappeared. The object then ascended vertically and disappeared. The event lasted 30 minutes, The witnesses claimed that snow had melted where the object had hovered, and that a glass fruit jar was also partially melted. An area 200-300m long and 2m wide on the flight path became barren after the incident. Later the family saw strange lights and experienced poltergeist effects.

From an elevator like shaft came human shaped figures, with a hypnotic look, that placed small spheres around the craft. A man then came across the field and appeared to talk to the beings, as if by telepathy. The witness then stepped on a twig, alerting the entities to his presence. One of them chased and caught him, inflicting a wound like a burn on his neck.

Louis Monin (70) went out to lock the entrance to the courtyard of his country house on this clear evening. As he turned to go back inside, he observed to the WSW 150m away, above a graveyard adjacent to his property, white flashes of light. He first thought it was someone illegally dumping waste and called for his wife and granddaughter Marie-Solange, who also observed the glimmers, which were also observed by three other independent witnesses, who did not, however, observe the sequel. Instead of the expected van, the family saw an ellipsoid 10m diameter, red like cooling ambers, which was silently skimming over the graves, lighting the ground with a white light, like day. Mrs Monin fled indoors, but Louis and M-S continued to watch as the object advanced up their vegetable patch, where it hovered, oscillating at several metres altitude. Suddenly it dropped to the ground and flames issued from its left extremity, then orange flames came from the right, while they heard a crackling sound like burning stubble. These flames were less like a normal fire, than a rapid stream of compact particles. M-S wanted to investigate, but Louis held her back, and she went back inside the house hoping to get her grandmother to join them again. As Louis watched, he observed a dwarf, no more than 1m tall, emerge from the right hand side of the object, standing in the middle of the orange flames. In silhouette he appeared grey, but they were surprised to take in so many details. Louis ran back to get his wife, but she refused to come out. When he returned to the porch with M-S the being had disappeared and the object now looked like a great red ball, which suddenly rose up vertically, hovered for a while, then took off to the south, being lost in the sky in seconds. No traces or effects were noted.

As they got within 60m, they saw the lights were on an object shaped like two shallow bowls places rim to rim, with a sort of gondola underneath. The thing was hovering just above the trees at an altitude of 20-25m.Iit was about 15m long and 5m thick at the thickest. From one end a pair of white searchlights was directed downwards, growing wider in the normal fashion. On the gondola was a horizontal row of windows giving forth a faint soft light, of a yellow or pink shade. On the bottom of this gondola were three red lights. After 2 minutes the searchlights swung to aim at an upward angle of 45 degrees. The object then began to move slowly northwards, emitting a soft hum or buzz which gave the impression of coming from the beams. After it had gone 60-100m the thing seemed to just disappear. The witness thought it had dropped view the level of the trees but they could not see anything there.

WOLLSTONECROFT (NEW SOUTH WALES : AUSTRALIA)
Mrs Ainsley Ryle, a former senior lecturer at Sydney University, was watching TV with her husband when, through the panoramic window, she saw a shimmering object approaching slowly as if to land on the roof of the flats opposite. She called her husband F. J. and they went onto the balcony to get a better look through binoculars. They saw about 160m ahead, a perfect sphere, 2 to 3 times the apparent diameter of the moon, moving slowly along the roof line. It had a pulsating soft orange glow, with flashes of orange and tangerine, which seemed contained within the object and cast no reflection. At or just below the thing’s centre was a belt of at least three identical but smaller spheres vibrating in harmony with the parent body. The couple had the curious feeling that they could somehow see into or through the opaque object and that it was just a light source with no internal structure. Several other people in other suburbs saw the same object.

ASHINGTON (NORTHUMBERLAND : ENGLAND)
Ronald Martino and a companion were walking between Ashington and Pegswood when they saw an amber ball circling on the horizon at an elevation of about 30 degrees. The companion turned off for home and Ronald continued on alone. The object then dropped down, appeared to examine the surface of a field and then began following Ronald, who had started to run, at a distance of 15m. This object appeared to be quite large, with an amber light rippling out from the centre. Ronald had the feeling that the thing was deliberately keeping its distance and a felt a sensation of tingling, his nylon mackintosh coat was crackling with static and he felt hot. When a car’s headlights shone on the object, the amber light dimmed and then returned to normal when the lights passed on. This happened several times. When Ronald reached the main road, the object was no longer to be seen, though he still “sensed” its presence. Arriving at his destination he saw the light again, in the sky. No sound was heard.

TUSCUMBIA (MISSOURI : USA)
A farmer was walking towards a large barn 100m east of his house when he noticed that one of his cows was looking into a field east of the barn. He then saw an object on the ground, 100m away, resting on a rise in the field. He walked to the northeast corner of the barn from where he could see that the object was not a parachute as he had first thought, but a shell or disc seen edgeways, about 4m diameter, 2m thick, sitting on a shaft 75cm high, 45cm diameter. The object was grey-green in colour, the texture of silk rather than metal. Along the bottom was a row of openings `5-20cm long, about 30cm apart, from which an extremely bright light, changing colours, was emitted. Underneath this object were several small things or beings moving about and moving their arms rapidly. They were the same colour as the object and appeared to have wide set eyes. The farmer left the bucket of feed he had been carrying and walked to a fence about 20m from the barn. At a distance of about 10m from the object he threw the first of two large rocks he had been carrying, but at a distance of 4.5m from the object, it just fell to the ground. A rock lobbed to hit from above seemed to bounce off something. He then walked on to this barrier, where a sort of pressure kept him back. The object now began to rock back and forth and then took off at high speed towards a ridge in the northeast, the shaft pulled up as it took off. The witness recalled that there were about 10-12 of the “robots”, which were about 60cm tall, with a proboscis like protrusion from the top and with slim arms. No legs or feet were visible. No traces were found.

She also felt a change in air pressure. Getting up, joined by her two year old son, through the window, she observed a sort of orange bar, surmounted by a grey dome in which there were five windows, hovering over the houses opposite. From the windows in sequence came a dazzling white light, which so hurt her eyes that she had to close the curtains. She saw the lights through the curtains for another 5 minutes. The sound now changed in pitch and the object vanished. A peculiar musty smell filled the room. Her ears and jaw ached through the night and remained so bad, along with a peculiar tiredness, she had to take two days off work. The dog remained fretful through the night.

The object then moved silently and smoothly away from him, hovering over some pumps and aircraft at the edge of the airport. The witness again approached with shouts and gestures, whereupon a loud whirring, swishing sound came from the object, and is orange lights began to spin at an increasing rate.

At an undisclosed location, J G a company executive was out driving when he saw a strange object in the sky. His car stalled and a group of beings approached and courteously escorted him into their craft. There were crewmen on either side and in front and behind. G was confused and seemed to faint as the beings approached. Just before they entered the craft, they revived him with a touch on his forehead. As they dragged him up a ramp, he struggled and then got the impression that they were smiling at him. He then felt that they were friends and stopped smuggling. These beings consisted of a leader dressed in blue and a crew between 1.35 and 1.55m tall, with broad foreheads, hawk like noses and stretched, oddly slanted eyes, in which he could not see pupils and which disturbed him. These beings communicated amongst themselves in a guttural tongue. When they entered, the ramp shot back after them. There were no seams. The interior was illuminated by a steady glow from the walls and ceilings. There was a central cylinder and in another room a consol/control panel with buttons, gauges and flashing lights. The “leader” gave JG a tour of the craft and communicated by telepathy. The cylinder was the propulsion system, but they seemed evasive about the details. This column began to rotate as the crew worked the console. One of the crew went out to turn off the ignition on JG’s car and then they took him on a journey, during which he saw the lights of a city through a window. They gave him some clue as to their intentions which he refused to talk about, but was left with anxiety, insomnia and weight loss.

No traces could be found at the site, but a crack was found in the muzzle of Baldwin’s gun. Local investigatorsregarded the story as suspect. On the March 3 Baldwin returned to the site to get his wallet and encountered the beings again.

Mrs Carolyn Manhood, wife of the green keeper at Canterbury Women’s Bowling Club, went onto the veranda to fetch her small daughter, who had wandered out, when she saw a strange circular object descend out of the clouds and hover over the bowling green. Her sister, Mrs R Coleman was on the phone to their mother, and the phone died as Carolyn screamed out. Mrs Coleman ran to join her and both saw the object at the height of the telephone wires. The thing was plate shaped, dark grey in colour, the size of a small plane and emitting a weird humming sound. After 10 minutes this object disappeared behind the railway lines and seconds later shot up into the sky. They called Mr Manhood who saw the object as being like a balloon high in the sky. At its closest the object was only 30m away.

They were passing Keeneyville on US 20 when they what they first thought was a shooting star, until it hovered and they could see that it was a circular object with blinking red lights. As they entered Bartlett the object seemed to descend into a wooded area, its glare lighting up the trees. As they turned to get a better view, the red glow disappeared and a brilliant white object shot out the woods, and shone two beams of white light into the car. The object followed them to their home, where it hovered about 3m above a tree. They woke her son who joined his mother and sisters in watching the thing for an hour, as it rose up into the sky and turned grey. A sort of grey mist descended over the area and when it had cleared the object had gone. Their dog, which was in the car with them, was terrified during the event.

One of the women saw it first and her scream alerted the others. The object was a disc surmounted by a cone and with a rim of irregularly pulsating red lights. It approached closer and then a brilliant white cone of white light seemed to explode from it, towards the witnesses, forcing them shield their eyes. This white light turned off after 10 seconds and then the red pulsating lights were again visible until the object accelerated rapidly off to the north, disappearing behind trees.

Through binoculars they saw that it was a wide oval object of brownish colour with a cone shaped light beneath it, which changed colours, mainly between red and yellow. The cone was vertical when the object was stationary and at an angle when it moved. This object slowly descended the mountain, just above its surface until a quarter of the way down it headed over the adjacent mountain and then flew part way back and disappeared in a gap between the peaks.

Mr R and his daughter Jean went out to investigate ome strange lights seen by his wife earlier that evening. After driving around for a while, they parked and Mr got out/He saw two globes of light about 1.5km down the road, 60m above the ground, just smaller than the apparent size of the full moon. The objects came towards the couple flying parallel, changing places with each other about 800m away. The objects were now much larger, but their light did not illuminate the countryside. They thought they were lights on a private aircraft, but their general manoeuvrability and the fact that they landed on the road about 400m away caused the witnesses to change their mind. They approach at between 110-130 kph 3m apart. The witnesses switched on their headlights, but the lights continued to approach, suddenly vanishing about 50m away. When the expected impact did not materialise, they got up from where they had been crouching, to see, a few metres from their Volkswagen, a group of figures standing in an irregular semicircle. They quickly got back into their car and drove away. As they did so, Jean was able to see the beings more clearly. They were about 3m from the car, of human appearance, but with expressionless inhuman faces. Their eyes were long narrow slits, their noses were human, but their mouths were like slits. Four of the figures were about 1.7m tall, the other much shorter, about 1.5m. All wore flat top caps, beneath which blond hair was showing, much longer on the shorter being who gave the impression of being a woman. All were dressed in grey-green shirts, open at the neck, and outside their equally grey-green trousers. Their skin was rough and scarred looking. On recalling the incident, Jean stated that as the lights approached, she “heard” a chorus of voices in her head saying “don’t move” in a long drawn out fashion. The girl was hysterical and both believed they had encountered some diabolical manifestation and went to their minister. Calmed, Mr R returned to the scene but could see nothing.

This object ascended vertically, stopped briefly and then flew away horizontally, describing two sharp turns before disappearing behind trees. At the site they found an area 16m diameter where the plants were dehydrated. Five holes were found leading away from the area, 90cm wide, 25cm deep, each containing a dark vile smelling liquid. An Air Force investigation did not take away any samples. The site was still barren in 1972.

HILLSBORO (KANSAS : USA)
About 1,5km west of Hillsboro, Miss Mary Beth Neufeld of Lehigh and several friends had their attention caught by a brilliant light that seemed out of place in the cloudy starless night. They drove towards the thing, whereupon it flashed and came towards them. It was a flat object, surrounded by an inverted cupola. When the object came overhead the car rocked violently from side to side and engine stalled. When the object left suddenly a few moments later the engine restarted itself. The girls then drove to Hillsboro and reported the matter to the authorities.

Air Force Staff Sergeant John Ferguson, his wife and three children were on the FM road, en route from California to Tennessee when he pulled up in the vicinity of Loco to consult his road map. His attention was attracted by a red light, which he first thought was another vehicle until it came close, at which he saw that it covered the width of the road. John now drove off, the object following him at speed up to 160kph, profiling the contours of the landscape. It was gaining on the car when they reached a farmhouse, where the light split into two separated lights and disappeared.

BELT (MONTANA : USA)
Ken Williams was driving his auto-transport from Laurel to Great falls when about 3km south of the turnoff to Belt, he saw a bright light moving slowly a few hundred metres above the hills. He then lost it to view. On reaching the bridge on the long grade into town, at the top of Belt Hill he saw the object again. It was a huge dome shaped thing, 800m away emitting blinding white light and was at 200mn altitude. He stopped and saw the object descend to on or near the ground in a ravine about 2.5km away. It took off and settled down in a ravine behind a ridge. The light brightened and dimmed three times, becoming blinding at its brightest. At its brightest the light was too brilliant for him to look at. Ken stopped a motorist, Don Knotts, who informed the police department. Patrolman Bud Nader drove to the scene, briefly seeing a light to the right of the Belt Hill en route. Arriving at the scene, he saw a light, like that from a farmhouse, in a ravine, which was too steep to investigate that night. A search next day found an area about 10m diameter of freshly broken twigs and branches, which brakes appeared to have been caused by rotation. Investigations were inconclusive.

A hexagonal object some 10m diameter appeared on the right side of the old Rio-Sao Paulo highway, at kilometre 51, between Itaguai and Camp Grande, and then accompanied a car carrying six people for 50km. The centre of the object was luminous like fire and rotated, while the upper and lower parts were dark. The object seemed to fly in a spiral path at a constant altitude of 15m. The travellers stopped to have a better look and when they turned off , the light, which had also stopped, went out and the object was not visible by the light of the full moon. After 5 minutes they decided to continue their journey and the lights of the object came back on and it continued to accompany them until they came to a place where a hill came between them and the object, after which it did not reappear.

MUNRO FALLS (OHIO : USA)
David Morris (20) was driving home on a back road to Monroe Falls from his shift at the Lamb Electrical Company at Kent. Because of foggy conditions he was driving carefully at 50 kph, concentrating on the road ahead. He was approach a small hill on Monroe Falls Road, when he saw the glow of what he thought was a barn fire ahead, and slowed still further. As he got closed he saw that the orange red glow came from a conical object, 7.5m tall, 3.6m wide at the base, in a wheat field 20-30m to the left of the road.. On top of the cone was a sphere. Turning back to the road, he less than 15m in front of his car, on the road, a group of small figures 1.05-1.20 m tall with oversized heads. They were giving off the same orange-red glow as the object in the field. The beings were running back and forth across the road in a purposeful manner, from a drainage ditch on the north side to the south side, with surprising speed and agility. The moment he saw the beings Morris slammed on the breaks, but the creatures seemed oblivious to his presence, and unable to stop on time, he struck one of them, hearing a thump on the right front portion of his car. He was about to get out and assist, when he was overcome by panic at the inhuman nature of the beings-he had the impression that there were no fingers on the hand of the creature he struck, fear of their revenge, the strange glowing object hovering less than 1m above the field and a strange smell like hot brass. For these reasons he drove quickly away. He also had the impression he had passed over the creature without touching it. He was shaken by his experience and it was two hours before he went to bed./ Next day he and a friend visited the spot, but found nothing except his own car’s skid marks. There were three separate dents and some scratches on the chrome of his 1964 Chevrolet. He recalled that the beings seemed to be wearing one piece suits, that there were no marks or openings on the object, and that has he drove away he saw the creatures standing in a group, though was unable to say if one was on the ground.

Brothers Kerry and Adrian Smith were driving along the dirt track from Orry Road, about 6.5km south of town, when their car stalled, as did two behind them. While Kerry was inspecting the engine, Adrian pointed out a brilliant sphere, disappearing in the sky at 1,000m, about 1.2km away, whereupon the engine restarted, as did those of the following cars. They continued with their hunting trip through tracked and back roads. At one point they saw lights moving erratically in the distance. A few moments later their attention was caught by a red glow about 400m away. Getting out and going closer, they saw it was suspended above a creek and “diffusing” along. Unnerved the brothers rushed back and hurriedly drove off. As they were driving away, Adrian keeping an eye on the light through the rear window, the whole area was illuminated by a ring of red-green fire, which rose up to a height of about 8m, remained for a few moments, then took off at tremendous speed, disappearing in a few moments. The fire seemed to be a ring of jets about 4.5m diameter, but with no solid structure visible.

Carol Wayne Watts (29), a respected local farmer was working in his barn when he saw a light on his uncle’s adjacent property and went to investigate in a pickup. In his headlights he saw a dull grey cylindrical object 25-30m long, 2.5-3m high, floating about 60cm above the ground. Fearing a plane crash, Carol walked towards the thing. A door slid open and he saw inside. There was no crew, only machines and dials lit by a strange blue light. A voice, like a recording, invited him on board to take a physical examination. It seemed to know all about him. The voice said that they were stationed all over the world and that no-one could stop them. On the night of April 11th, Carol went out to check for storm damage and saw the light again. Before he reached the spot, his truck stalled as a small ovoid object landed beside him. He saw 4 men beside it. They were 1.35-1.5m tall, muscular and dressed in a white coveralls. They had wrap around eyes, superficial ears and noses and slit like smiley mouths. An electronic voice again urged him to take a physical. He entered the machine and a door closed behind him. There he was sat on a flexible chair. The lights went down and Carol felt pushed back and had other feelings of acceleration. After a couple of minutes a felt three bumps and a slight vibration. The door opened and he saw a large room. He was stripped and probed by delicate wires, while the beings stood in another room, studying something on an illuminated circle, as if studying the results. Carol saw a green cube on a table and put it in the hip pocket of his jeans, which were hanging nearby, but after he had dressed, one of the men reached into the pocket and removed the cube. Carol grabbed the being’s arm and was knocked unconscious.

Two boys, who had been playing by a haystack, were about to go home, when they observed a dark grey object in the sky. The boy who had first seen it thought it was a waterspout and ran home. His braver companion hid in a ditch and continued to observe it. He saw it descend, slowing down quickly as three legs were lowered through the bottom. It looked as if it were going to land, but when the object got within 1m of the ground the legs were retracted and the object accelerated out to sea over the Kattegat strait, When it was over the shore some objects like boxes were thrown out. The object then made a turn over the sea, and a sort of box or hamper was lowered from it, suspended on the end of a thick flexible cable. Eight persons then emerged from an opening in the craft, and climbed down the cable into the box. The beings seemed to be carrying instruments resembling binoculars or cameras. Four of the beings smiled at the boy and gestured to him, holding their palms vertically and making quick horizontal movements. The object moved away, making a sound the hum of a battery operated tape recorder. The beings were quite small, one wore a blue suit, the others striped ones, and all wore stripped caps. Apart from the being dressed in blue, they all had containers on their backs, from which tubes led to their mouths. On their shoulders they had what looked like electric torches with lights at both ends. One of the boxes dumped on the shore was later picked up. It was a lump of material which included, according to those who analysed it, inorganic coal (sic?) and lime.

A sphere of intense light, 75cm diameter, descended close to the car bonnet. This light was slightly flattened at the top and bottom and in the centre was a luminous metallic looking band. The thing emitted two vapour trails, 10cm wide, about 45cm apart to one side of the object’s underside. Soon after she stopped, this sphere rose above a large tree, flattening out more as it did so. Two lights, one white, the other red, flashing on and off approached the sphere three times and then backed away. After the sphere had risen a certain distance the vapour trails stopped and at the same time sparks came from the centre of its base. When the object began to move west, Mrs Dauncey turned her car round to follow it but when the condition of the road forced her to turn back, the thing followed them. When she stopped the car, the object stopped with a sudden rocking motion and then moved off to the north, growing smaller in the distance.

One of the objects appeared to land behind some trees before taking off again, another travelled across the sky in an undulating fashion while the third appeared to pursue an airplane. Later that morning a group of 30-40 people including painter John Wolff and his children, saw a group of domed objects on which no detail could be seen. When planes approached these domes just seemed to vanish and there appeared to be an air of unreality about these objects.

Four students at Lees McRae College (Rod Mittrell, Eldie McGowan, Ken Davis and Mary Casey) were in a car on a double date near the Highland Games field, Grandfather Mountain, about 13km from Banner Elk when they noticed a green fluorescent light on the ground near a clump of trees 60m away. Suddenly their car engine failed and could not be restarted and the car radio became filled with static, like the sound of an electrical metre. The students pushed the car back to the main road where they were able to get it started. The object then moved towards their car, veered away suddenly and disappeared in a valley near the field. The next morning they found on the ground, under an opening in the trees, three circular imprints about 15 cm diameters, 5cm deep, each 90cm apart, forming an equilateral triangle as if a heavy object with tripod legs had landed there. The students were of excellent character.

KVARNBRANET (VASTERBOTTEN : SWEDEN)
Thorsten Lindmark was driving his car close to his home when he suddenly felt a powerful wind against the vehicle. At the same time he noticed two round, luminous multi-coloured objects, 1.3m long, 20cm thick and 15m altitude. The objects moved towards the east at great speed. Thorsten hurried home and his wife could see the objects in the distance. The next day Thorsten went to the site where he found small fir twigs laid out in belt 50m long, and several metres wide, pointing in the same direction as the object’s flight path. Meteorologists rejected the idea of a self-luminous whirl wind.

WOODVILLE (IDAHO : USA)
A woman who did not want her name to be used was driving towards her home in Woodville, when she saw a bright light to her left. It appeared to be twice the height of the telephone poles and larger than a car. It had a plastic appearance, and a shape like that of a top hat, with a “coning tower”, with vertical partitions, and a bright curved underside. The object was amber in colour and was moving slowly. The lady followed the thing to her home, where she got the 13 year old baby sitter to also see it. They both saw the thing pass westward over the yard and hover over lava beds nearby. It then emitted two fiery spheres and sparks from the underside. This was repeated a few minutes later and then the object’s lights just went out.

A man driving near Melville saw a luminous object in the sky and then his car engine died as a circular, metallic looking object landed beside the road. At this point his car radio, which was off, started to emit strange voices. From an opening in the landed object came a tiny figure that looked more like a machine than an organic being. This thing picked up some soil which it placed into the disc. The opening then closed and the disc turned bright red as it rose into the sky with a whirring sound and united with the large luminous object. The car then worked normally.

The thing passed over his car at about 160kph. A farmer saw the thing hover over one of his fields and project lights, too bright to look at. A boy was thrown from a cart, as his pony bolted and ended up on its back. Mrs Capehart saw a large luminous sphere with two rows of four portholes pass overhead. On each side was a conical projection. Other people reported interterence on their TVs. It was also seen by Louis Ellis at Middleport.

A school principal was driving home from a PTA meeting, down a small county road, with some colleagues travelling with him in another car, when his attention was suddenly caught by a bright light over a cliff. He was afraid that an aircraft was going to crash land in a nearby cornfield, only for him to see that the thing was shaped like a World War One helmet, and perhaps 100m long. It hovered in front of his car for a moment, its intense white light seeming to come through the vehicle’s roof and his hands, before changing direction and heading towards the airport. He went to join his companions in the other car and they all saw the object hover over power lines for about 10 minutes. They went to the airport, to find that the thing had overflown the facility and the pilot of an incoming plane saw the thing below him. It was also observed by two lawyers from Kansas City standing near the airport

EPHRATA (WASHINGTON : USA)
Two businessmen were driving with their wives about 16km south of Ephrata when they encountered a very bright light on the road, several kilometres ahead. The driver speeded up to view this at closer quarters but then had to brake to avoid a collision. As the light became clear to them, it went out and then reappeared as a dull amber light to their left, switched off again and then appeared behind the, white again. The light followed closely as the driver attempted to speed up the car, which began to splutter and lose power though it did not stop. As oncoming traffic appeared from Ephrata, the thing ascended into the sky. The white light appeared to come from objects resembling car head lights, each giving off a shaft of very bright light on an elliptical object, which appeared lensed shape at close quarters. When the sheriff’s deputy investigated he found the witnesses badly shocked. He also found a teardrop shaped sticky spot on the highway about 5m at the longest dimension, with the point turned towards the side of the road. It looked like either fresh oil or as though the asphalt had recently been very hot.

SOUTH HILL (VIRGINIA : USA)
Clifton N Crowder, manager of the Mobile Chemical Co warehouse, was driving home from working late when, as he turned west on East Farrell, his headlights illuminated a cylindrical object 150m away. It was a cylinder 3-3.5m tall, with legs 1m long, 15cm thick. Its body was 3m diameter with a flat bottom and dome shaped top. It had an aluminium colour, similar to that of a nitrogen fertiliser tank near his office. Crowder drove cautiously to within 75m of the thing. He increased his headlights and as he did so the object took off, with a column of white fire 45cm in diameter, the object rising out of sight in an instant. The road was left burning with orange flames. Crowder drove past the site and reported the matter to the police. A burned patch of tar and three carbonised matches were found at the scene. Later investigations showed four small holes in a square of sides 3.45m. State troopers who investigated the site on the evening swore that they were not present then. Farmer Norman Martin who lived several hundred metres away saw a brilliant light rise from the ground at about that time.

About 1km south of the airstrip, in the bush, they saw a bright haze which turned into an inverted cone of light, followed by an orange discoid object that rose vertically and then turned onto its edge and came towards them. They flashed their headlights, whereupon the thing stopped, reversed and landed in the same spot as before. Their compasses would not function in the area, though they did not see the object again that day.

The light came from some ovoid windows in the dome of an object with a dark underside. Something seemed to be moving behind the windows. He was shaken by the sight and went home to bed. Next day he examined the site, where he found a substance, like strangely coloured, fine cotton wool. He could scarcely feel the substance in his hands. He placed a sample under a stone but it gradually vanished over a period of three days. The grass at the sight was pressed down, and the lowest wire on some nearby pylons had been pulled down and dragged 20m.

The oval object descended with a falling leaf motion and made the ground shake when it landed. The men were paralysed. The thing then took off again and they found that they had recovered the use of their limbs, and looking at their watches saw that 2 hours, 45 minutes had passed, for which they had no memory. The thing was shaped like a vertical egg 2-2.5m tall and when it took off, slowly at first and then at high speed, multi-coloured flames emerged from openings on the bottom. At the site they found traces of a tripod landing gear, in the middle of which was a crater 3m deep, widening towards the bottom, in which were crystals like broken glass. The witnesses suffered from violent headaches in buzzing in the ears for two days after the incident.

5 people ( 2 couples in their 20s and a woman of 37) found their car stuck after a picnic. They decided to walk to the Mill Creek Guard Station. One of the women drew the others attention to a light in the sky. The thing then started descending in jerks, before taking off to the west with a blast of air. The thing then returned, at 30m above the trees and then hovered over a hill about 2km away. The thing was silent up to that point, but there was a sudden whooshing sound and the sky lit up, stunning the party. When they came to their senses they were running and it was 0130hrs.. One of the women felt tired so they left her by the road as they carried on to the Station to call for a lift home, picking her up on the way. One of the men suffered nightmares after the event.

PHILADELPHIA (PENNSYLVANIA : USA)
Mrs Ruth Smythe was driving about 9.5km out of Philadelphia, following a removal van, when she observed a disc shaped object, of dark dull grey gunmetal colour. It had a dark band around its centre, with what looked like unlit portholes, and a sort of pipe out of which came a thin stream of vapour. The thing was surmounted by a dome, which seemed to be rotating on a central axis, and a flat bottom. Ruth observed it at the height of three telephone poles for 3 minutes, after which it seemed to shudder and, emitting cherry red sparks from the pipe, shot straight up. As it emitted the sparks, Ruth developed a violent toothache. This faded a few minutes after the thing had gone.

FALCON LAKE (MANITOBA : CANADA)
Stephen Michalak (32), an industrial mechanic from Winnipeg, was on a prospecting holiday in the Falcon Lake area. He was chipping at some rock when his attention was caught by the cackling of geese in a nearby swamp and looking up saw two scarlet lights in the sky. The lights then resolved into a two cigar shaped objects, each with a central hump, approaching at 15 degrees from the horizontal on a heading of 240 degrees. One of the objects landed 40m away, while the other one, after hovering at treetop height for a few moments, took off. The landed object changed colour from brilliant scarlet through grey-red, then grey then silver. Stephen now saw that it was a disc 10m in diameter, 3m high, with sloping sides and surmounted by a rounded dome 3m diameter, 1m high. The dome was surrounded by horizontal slats 30cm long. The side facing Stephen had vents 15cm by 24cm containing some 30 small holes. Stephen sat and sketched what he thought was a new American test vehicle for some minutes until a square opening appeared in its lower part, from which emerged brilliant multi-coloured lights. These were so bright that Stephen had to put on his welding goggles to approach. He also heard a high pitched sound like a motor, a whooshing sound and smelled something like burning sulphur and experienced waves of heat.

After about 30 minutes Stephen approached within 12m of the object and heard the sound of voices from the hatch. He walked right up to the thing, calling out in English, Russian, German, Italian and Polish without response. With his goggles down he looked in through the hatch but could see nothing except small lights flashing in a random pattern. He stepped back and the doorway closed. He approached again and placed his hand on the thing’s surface, his glove coating melting on contact. At the same instant the object angled upwards and Stephen was caught in a wave of heat that set his shirt and undershirt on fire and burned a hole in his cap. The blast sent him reeling back and a terrible smell of sulphur filled the air. He managed to stamp out of the flames on his shirt and staggered back to his camp. He then left for town, vomiting violently, feeling dizzy and with pain in his chest and burns on his abdomen. During the incident his compass was affected.

He did not receive any medical help until he returned to Winnipeg. There his family confirmed his symptoms, which also included a foul odour on his breath, an apparent 10kilogram weight loss and the reoccurring appearance of a chequered rash on his chest. Tests by several doctors and clinics proved inconclusive. Efforts to find the site, including one by the Condon committee were initially fruitless, but a second search by Stephen and a friend disclosed a circle of disturbed ground and some radioactive samples. Two bars of metal, showing signs of radioactivity, were found at the site were discovered a year later.

The landed machine was about 150m away in a field, and he first thought it was a tractor/trailer. He noticed lights flashing bright and dim in portholes, and a bubble like projection underneath. He also saw at least 12 small beings wearing what looked like miners’ helmets with four multicoloured lights on top, moving around the landed object, especially around a sort of aerial on one side, and a small creek on the mine property. The little men were 150m away at the closest. They walked with a stiff gait like robots, and appeared to be gathering samples. The beings entered and exited the object through a retractable staircase and the side of the object opposite to the one facing him. He did not feel afraid, nor did the creatures seem afraid of him. After some minutes he called a fellow miner Merv Hannigan.

A group of five men were on a fishing vacation on this dark cloudy morning, when they heard a painfully low pitched humming sound. One of them, an engineer, decided to go and investigate, while the rest carried on fishing. About 5 or 6 minutes later the humming started again, only louder. They realised that it came from a hill 500m behind them, from which beams of smoky light were projected upwards. The frightened men decided to leave, but as they did so the engineer returned and forced them up the hill at gunpoint. At the top was a huge circular object, 30m wide, 5m high with fins coming from either side, emitting a green phosphorescent light, hovering 10m above the ground. The thing had a central hatchway that emitted multi-coloured lights. A sort of cylinder, with an oval door, came down from the thing to within 30cm of the ground. The narrator then became faint and when he recovered him and his companions were lying on padded tables in a room with milky-white glassy walls. In the ceiling was a red blue light from which a voice came. It claimed that they had been taken “for the good of the universe” that the 6 members of the crew were too alien to show themselves, and asked a variety of inane questions. In response to the men’s fears of suffocation, a triangular opening appeared in the thing, letting in fresh air. After more questions and pseudo-science the men found themselves back on the beach at 0520. Some items of their equipment were missing. No footsteps showing how they had come down the hill again were visible. At the top of the hill was a shallow crater.

They then set out again to return to their neighbours, but again the object appeared to descend towards them. They then awoke a colleague and his household. A total of eight people observed the object hover then disappear rapidly west-northwest. The thing was oval, 7.5-9m by 3-4.5m at the thickest point, with a slight rise on top. The surface appeared shiny, metallic and glassy and reflected the moonlight. The object titled when descending and the trees swayed as it did so.

Looking around, he saw, at the edge of a nearby field some 6-7m away, a round, shiny grey object, resembling an upside down cooking pot, suspended about 50cm above the ground. Its top part was domed with a sort of wing on it, while its bottom half was flat and rotating at high speed. The thing was about 70-80cm diameter. As Arvi dashed to grab the thing, three antennae emerged, so unnerving him that he stopped. The object began to rise and shot out a powerful blast, which raised a cloud of dust. Arvi tried to throw his hat at the object, but it was blown clear. The object then began to circle the house and then darted away. The incident was seen by his brother Veikko.

They observed the thing for 10 minutes before it hesitated at a hedge. Became circular in shape, went eastwards alongside the hedge, going through a barbed wire fence in the process, and then out into an open field towards a number of cows, which it passed at a distance of less than 15m, without their apparently noticing it. On reaching a large avenue of trees, it rose up and went along the treetops and then descended into the next field. It was still proceeding eastwards when the couple stopped looking at it, an hour later. It appeared to be an elongated disc or balloon.

After keeping an unusual object under surveillance, Merchant Policeman James Ferguson called up Highway Patrolman Dennis Eisnach for help at the Montana-South Dakota construction site. Soon after Dennis arrived at this site, both officers saw an object, with flashing lights, take off from behind a clump of trees, and hover just above the branches. They were unable to make out a shape, just red, white and green flashing lights, which went back and forth and landed a couple of blocks away. When Dennis drove behind it, the thing took off again and landed behind a hill. When close to the ground, the white light got brighter. Several other officers saw the object and three similar in the distance for 2½ hours.

THOMPSON (MANITOBA : CANADA)
Mrs D F Le Marquands had just entered her house when she heard a beeping sound and, looking out of the window, saw debris swirling around the house in a circular motion. Going outside, she saw her husband and 5 children staring into the sky. After a while she was able to see the cause of the disturbance, a large oblong or cuboid object, revolving in an anti-clockwise direction. As the thing rotated, the sides alternated between dark and aluminium coloured but there were no openings or markings on the completely silent object. Mrs L then heard a sound and saw a neighbour’s boy holding down her 8 year old daughter. After the object had moved off at a 45 degree angle, levelling off, hovering and then leaving ion a level course towards the south-east, the children revealed that the girl had been lifted off the ground about 1m towards the object, her skirt, blouse and hair rising straight up. The little girl remembered nothing of the incident and was the only one of the children not terrified.
