Investigation Report: Eau Claire, WI CE4 Case Study (7/98) Investigators: Chad Lewis - WI MUFON State Director Craig Lang - MN MUFON FI Coordinator Case Background: We were introduced to the primary witness in this case when she contacted Bob Schultz of MN MUFON. She was then placed in contact with John Carpenter. She arranged to meet him on the weekend of his lecture in Eau Claire, WI (15 Nov, 1997). During that weekend, we interviewed her and made arrangements to perform a followup site visit. Chad Lewis and Craig Lang performed the initial followup visit on 24 Jan, 1998. Craig Lang performed a interview visits on 20 June, 1998. This report contains details of these visits, plus related material. The witness has indicated that she intends to pursue hypnotic regression. Chad Lewis is currently arranging this. This investigation is ongoing and this report will be updated as events unfold. Witness Descriptions [CL Note: Specific identifying details are withheld to maintain witness anonymity. These details are on MUFON Form1 for each sighting and are confidential to MUFON. In addition, at the discretion of the witnesses, qualified researchers may contact them through the investigators.] The primary witness is a thirty four year old mother of three. She, her husband and their children live in a house in rural Eau Claire, WI. She is employed as a clerical worker and he is a craftsman in a factory in the region. She is also attending college at the present time. The primary witness and her husband both describe their health, vision, and hearing as good. The witness indicates that both she and her husband have had anomalous experiences, including several well-defined CE1, CE3 and CE4 events. The children have also apparently observed or experienced some anomalous events. We have been able to talk with them to a limited degree regarding these. Background paranormal events have not been included in this report.

Date of Event: Sep, 1995 (exact date not known) Location: Master bedroom of witness's house in rural Eau Claire, WI Classification: AN3/CE3/CE4 Conclusion: Unexplained - pending further evaluation Significance: Moderate to high in context of her other experiences. Account: The witness was awakened to see an entity, in the form of a human(oid) male floating to the right side of the foot of her bed. She indicated that when she saw the entity she knew that it was male, and that she knew who he was. She was told, in a nonverbal manner, that his name was "Marcus", and he was there for her. She felt that their relationship was, in some way, very close. Witness sketch of "Marcus". Note: Witness wasn't entirely comfortable with sketch, but felt that this was the best she could remember She did not have sufficient memory of the face to sketch it, but felt that it was "hairy" and "catlike". She described the entity as being tall, and approximately human in appearance, but with a catlike face. She described his appearance as "a cross between Worf (on Star Trek) and the beast "Vincent" in the TV show Beauty and the Beast". He appeared to be dressed in a manner that suggested to her a military officer from an earlier time period, with an apparent breast plate arranged in a chevron design. The entity held his hands out to her, palms up, and she instinctively knew to put her hands in his. She indicated that she then rose up, and he pulled her in closer to him. [CL Note: She indicates that she was under the covers when the entity appeared. If this was a physical movement, it is not clear how the bed covers were removed.] At that point she felt that they were within a ball of light, and as if they were "dancing". She didn't remember any sound, and was not sure whether or not they were still within the room, but felt that there was not enough space within the room to have "danced" in the manner which they presently were. Thus, she feels that they must have been somewhere else while this interaction occurred. She indicates that this "dance" felt more like a "complete spiritual union", than physical motion to music (the traditional definition of dance). She did not feel that there was music present. The interaction concluded, and she indicates that she knew that "Marcus" had to go. She felt that he had come to bring some form of "notification" to her about events to occur. [CL Note: It was not clear what the actual terminating event of the encounter was. If a dream, did she wake up, or transition to another dream? If not, then it is not clear when/how she was returned to bed? This was not clear in the witness's memory.] Aftermath: This event appears to be the start of her consciously remembered experiences. She indicates that since that time, she has been very interested in spiritual topics, reading extensively in the area religion and spirituality, with subsequent interest in the field of UFOs and close encounters. Additional Witnesses: None. It is not clear whether or not her husband was present at the time of this event. However, it seems likely that he was. Weather Conditions: N/A - not sure of date, plus event was entirely in doors. Conventional Phenomena Check: I can not think of any objective natural or human made phenomena that would explain this encounter. Evaluation: Classification: AN3/CE3/CE4 Conclusion: Unexplained - pending further evaluation Significance: Moderate to high in context of her other experiences.
Date of Sighting: Mid November, 1996 Time of sighting: Late at night, exact time unknown Place of Sighting: Witness residence in rural Eau Claire, WI Type of Sighting: CE1,CE3, Probable CE4 Local Evaluation: Unexplained Significance: High, due to the probability that a CE4 took place Sighting Account: The witness awoke to go to the bathroom, sometime late at night. She was walking from the bedroom to the bathroom when she noticed bright lights and an associated large object just above the trees on the far side of the field, to the north of their house. [CL Note: the laundry room windows and back door afford a clear view to the north]. Incredulous, she went into the laundry room to get a better look. She indicates that she had difficulty believing her eyes, but concluded that it "had to be a ship". The object appeared to be "as big as a house", or approximately the size of a dinnerplate at arm's length. She watched through the laundry room windows as it drifted slowly to the south, low over the farm field. [She indicated that although well lit, it did not appear to cast light on the field itself.] Combined witness sketch showing path and description of object, hand entering door. As the object approached the farm house, she became very frightened. She indicates that she started to lock the doors and windows of the house, beginning with the laundry room windows, then the back door. She was running to the front to lock the kitchen door, but "it was too late, they were already there..." When she reached the kitchen door, it was beginning to open. [She felt that the entities were probably on the porch]. She tried to force the door closed again, but felt a force pushing it open. She felt herself being pushed backwards, ending up behind the now-fully-open door. As the door opened she observed a white mist or fog roll in. She also felt that at this point, there were lights in the front of the house which she assumed were associated with the "ship". She described them as "white, with some being blinking", but she was not, overall, sure of the colors. She indicates that she was too concerned about the door opening to notice much about the lights outside. At the point where the door was fully open, she remembers entities being behind it. Looking around the door, she observed a hand reaching in from outside. She felt that this hand was long and skinny, and came in very low, at the level at which a small child's hand would be. At this point, she also remembers a nonverbal scolding which seemed something like: "you know better than to try to resist". She indicates that this message came in the form of thoughts, rather than words. At that point she remembers nothing more. Aftermath: The next thing she remembers is awakening in her room. She feels that she didn't awaken immediately after the encounter, and that it was probably morning when she awoke. [CL Note: she did not remember whether or not the windows were locked, or the kitchen window was open] Additional Witnesses: None Weather Conditions: Unknown, since the exact date of the encounter is not known. Additional Witnesses: None are known. However, the house is within plain view of the highway. Thus, a large, well-lit object should have been plainly visible to passing motorists. Thus, the possibility exists that others may have seen this event in progress. Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: No known objective phenomenon would account for this experience. Sighting Evaluation: Type of Sighting: CE1,CE3, Probable CE4 Local Evaluation: Unexplained Significance: High, due to the possibility that a CE4 took place, and the opportunities for followup. In addition, due to the proximity of the event to the highway, the possibility exists that there may have been additional witnesses.
Date of Encounter: Early to Mid November, 1996 Place of Encounter: Witness Residence in Rural Eau Claire, WI Classification: AN4 or CE4 Local Evaluation: Unexplained Significance: Moderate to High Sighting Account: The witness was lying in bed, [CL Note: She sleeps on the Right side of the bed]. She was asleep when she was awakened by something touching her on the shoulder, [CL Note: She was not sure which shoulder, but thinks she was lying on her right side, the touch was probably on the left]. She indicates that she felt a presence on the right side of the bed, next to the wall. At that point, she felt something/someone grab her feet. She was instantly flipped over and landed on top of her husband. At that point she felt herself being pulled out of bed, in the direction of the foot of the bed. She indicates that she tried to scream and kick, but was unable to. [CL Note: She indicates that she initially felt that she could, but subsequently, on trying, found she could not]. As she was being pulled toward the foot of the bed, she indicates that she dragged her arms behind her, across her husband's chest. At the point when she was 1/2 of the way out of the bed, her memory of the event ends. The next thing she remembers is standing in the kitchen in her night gown. She remembers looking towards the East facing windows, which were "flipped out" - as if the windows were on hinges. [Note: the kitchen slide open, and do not hinge out. It is also notable that this was mid November, and was therefore cold outside] She felt that she had somehow come in through the window. While standing in the kitchen, she observed a bright light outside, approximately above the house, slightly to the east. The light shown in the window, projecting onto the kitchen floor. [Note: She initially thought it was a yard light, but when she investigated on subsequent nights, she noted that the yard light does not project onto the floor, but onto the North wall of the kitchen]. She indicates that she felt "weird, but 'going back to bed now'...". She also indicates that she felt a hand, which she described as "comforting", on her shoulder [She felt at one point that this might have been the entity of a CE4 event in 1995, whom she referred to as "Marcus"]. This entity seemed to convey a "reassurance that its OK, go to sleep". At that point she went back to bed and fell asleep. Aftermath: A short time later she awoke in fright, feeling very upset about what had happened. This event still frightens her. Also, roughly the day after the encounter, her shoulder [CL Note: not sure which one] felt sore. This continued for several [not sure how many] days after that. In addition, the family discovered the ground traces in the back yard within a few days of this event. See accompanying report on traces. Additional Witnesses: None. Her husband was in bed, but did not respond to her attempts to awaken him. He has no memory of the event In addition, the house is very close to the highway, with no intervening trees to block the view. Thus any object positioned over the house might have been clearly visible from the highway. Weather Conditions: Unknown, since the exact date of the encounter is not known. Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: No known objective phenomenon would account for this experience. Sighting Evaluation: Classification: AN4 or CE4 Local Evaluation: Unexplained, Significance: Moderate to High, due to the possibility that a CE4 occurred, the occurrence of possible ground traces from the event, and the willingness of the witness to pursue followup investigation.
Date of Event: Mid Nov, 1996 Note: Estimated date either Sunday 10 Nov or Wednesday 13 Nov, based upon WX records. Location: Witness's residence in rural Eau Claire, WI Classification: AN2, possibly associated with CE4. Local Evaluation: TBD explanation status - Investigation in progress. Significance: Normal significance Sighting Account: The ground traces are associated with one or more CE4 events which occurred in November of 1996. The witness felt that the date of discovery was a few days after her "pulled out of bed" CE4. However this correlation is not certain. Since the correlation between this trace and possible accompanying sighting(s) is not well established, this is listed as a separate event. The accompanying photographs were taken TBD on the day of discovery. This was approximately two days before the first snow in Nov 1996. The witness could not remember the actual time and circumstances of discovery. [CL Note: Records from the National Climatic data center indicate that the first snow was on 15 Nov, 1996. Thus the date of discovery would have been on 13 Nov, 1996. However, the witness also indicated that she though the discovery occurred on a Sunday, which would have been 10 Nov, 1996]. Photographs of initial ground traces: Trace image 1-1 Trace image 1-4 Second Ground Trace: The witness indicates that a second trace was discovered on her lawn at the approximate location of the first trace. The photographs below were taken on the date at which the first snow of November, 1997 melted. Weather records indicate that this would have been on the approximate date of Monday 24 Nov, 1997 +/- one day. [CL Note: need to determine date/time of second trace more closely]. It is not know whether this second trace is due to a separate event, or whether it is an effect of the process which resulted in the first traces. The following is a photograph of the second ground trace: Trace image 2-3 Investigation Details: The investigators visited the site on 24 Jan, 1998. Due to snow cover, the ground on which the traces were reported was not visible. Thus no samples were gathered. However, we took instrument readings using Geiger counter (Union Carbide Nuclear Rate Meter), and low-frequency electromagnetic field meter (Alpha Labs TriField Meter). These were taken on a walk-through from the front of the house, northward, toward the area in proximity of the traces, with measurements also taken on the eastern part of the property, and depicts the walk-through paths during the instrument readings. No anomalous electromagnetic or nuclear radiation readings were detected during these measurements. Map of property showing nuclear, magnetic and EM radiation walkthrough paths. A walk-through was also conducted while monitoring the possible deflection of a compass needle. This walk-through showed no anomalous readings, with the exception of the area around the traces. We noted a possible deflection of the compass needle as we walked over the exact location of the traces. However, this reading was ambiguous and will require more sensitive equipment to verify. The initial readings were as follows: Walking from E to W, no deflection was observed until approximately 4 feet from the trace location. Beginning at about 4 feet to the E of the trace, the deflection to the E appeared to increase as the compass approached the center of the trace. At the center of the trace, this deflection appeared to reach a maximum. Exiting trace area to the W, deflection appeared to lessen. When reversing our path, we observed the same deflection pattern, except with the needle apparently deflecting to the west. We were unable to reproduce this effect on the second attempt. Thus, the reading may have been caused by errors in measurement due to limitations of alignment of the compass with true north. Craig Lang returned to the site on 20 June, 1998, taking more accurate data using a compass, a DC magnetometer, and a DC electric field meter. These readings were taken along a survey line laid out along from east to west across the trace site. This time no anomalous magnetic or electric field readings were detected. No ground traces were present on the second visit , so samples were not collected. Other Possibilities: We are investigating the possibility that there might be some type of underground metallic object(s) in the area which could have caused the ground traces, possibly underground electrical cables, etc.. However, the mechanism by which such an object could cause the observed ground traces is not understood. Evaluation: TBD - investigation is in progress. Note: Since the traces are no longer present, detailed analysis is no longer possible.
Date of Report: Mar 16, 1998 Investigator: Craig R. Lang - Field Investigator, MN MUFON Sighting(s) Background: This report contains the preliminary investigation results of a series of sightings and close encounters reported by an experiencer who contacted Minnesota MUFON in November of 1997. [CL Note: Name is on file with Minnesota MUFON and is included on associated MUFON report forms. At the discretion of the witness qualified researchers may contact her via the investigator]. The witness contacted us via e-mail with a report of her September, 1997 Canterbury Park sighting. She also indicated having had other sightings and experiences. I called her and arranged an interview regarding this and other events. We conducted three interviews resulting in this report. In addition, other information was related, which is not included in this report, regarding a background of experiences which may be UFO related. The witness has described many sighting and close encounter events. However, this report contains only those eventswhich can be clearly isolated and described in detail. These are as follows: - A close encounter of the third kind, in Eau Claire on July 4, 1969. - An apparent CE4 at her mother's home in Eau Claire, WI in Sept., 94. - An FB1 occurring in August, 1997 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN (South of Minneapolis) All descriptions of events in this report were related under conscious recall. The witness indicates that she has undergone hypnotic regression in the past, with no UFO related material being recovered. The degree to which her memories were affected by this regression is not known. She has also indicated an interest in again undergoing hypnotic regression in the future, to further explore some of the possible CE4 scenarios. We plan to pursue this option at the earliest opportunity. Witness Description: The witness is a 41 year old college student with junior standing in environmental studies. She also has special training in electromechanics (robotics). Her vision is correctable to 20/20 with glasses. She describes her hearing as "fair", but OK. She indicates that she has had a number of UFO sighting and related close-encounter experiences. She describes her health condition as suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and depression. She is currently taking Zoloft for this condition which she indicates is effective. The witness's roommate, a close friend, was associated with at least one of the sightings. While the roommate seems somewhat skeptical of UFO- related topics, she appears to be very supportive of the witness. She feels that the witness is very sincere in describing her experiences. The following are specific sighting/encounter reports which the witness related to the investigator: July 4, 1969 Eau Claire, WI 'Racetrack' CE3 July '94 'Wolves on house' CE4 August 20, 1997 'Canterbury Park' FB1
Experiencer Case Study: St. Paul, MN 13 Sept, 1997 Field Investigator: Craig R. Lang - MN MUFON 1. Introduction This report describes my compilation of UFO and close encounter related experiences as described by a UFO encounter experiencer living in St. Paul, Minnesota. (Note: the witness's actual identity and contact information is on file with the investigator, and is included on the investigation data forms to be filed with MUFON HQ). This witness came to the attention of Minnesota MUFON in March of 1997 when she e-mailed a sighting report to the Minnesota MUFON webmaster. Minnesota MUFON then followed up on this and the other described events. The information for this report has been obtained via personal interviews during the ensuing months of 1997. UFO experiences have occurred throughout the witness's life and are only partly documented here. This report contains details on these events as related by her, plus analysis and some followup investigation results. Followup investigations may be ongoing where warranted. 1.1 Investigation Background The witness initially contacted MN MUFON via e-mail to report her January 1997 sighting at Prior Lake, MN. The Minnesota MUFON webmaster then forwarded the sighting report to me. I contacted the witness and arranged an interview. Over the subsequent months, I have interviewed the witness twice, plus conducted visits to sighting locations in Minnesota, and obtained additional corroborative information. The witness indicates that there are additional UFO related events occurring throughout her life, which are not included in this report. Many of these have occurred in California and may be of interest to investigators of California MUFON. In addition, I have brought the Arizona encounter event to the attention of Arizona MUFON. The witness has indicated a desire to undergo hypnotic regression to uncover the details of many of her encounters. I have indicated to her the name of at least one psychologist known to Minnesota MUFON (Dr. Ralph McKinney, of Minneapolis, MN). As of the writing of this report, she has not yet elected to undergo hypnotic regression, but has indicated that she is interested in doing so in the future. 1.2 Witness Description The witness is a 65 year old mother of 4 and grandmother of 9. She is a retired real estate agent, and has lived in Minnesota since 1992. From the late 1970's, until she moved to Minnesota she lived in California (Note: many of her UFO related events occurred there). Her health (both physical and mental) are good. Her eyesight is 20/20 and her hearing is also good. She indicates that she has had UFO related experiences for most of her life. These have included sightings, close encounters and paranormal activity. 1.3 Scope of Investigation This investigation has focused on the witness's most recent sightings in Minnesota, plus a number of other events in her life which she considers to be of critical importance. In all cases, she feels these events are unexplainable in terms of ordinary phenomenon. She has indicated that there are many additional events which for varying reasons, were not included in this report. Specifically, many events occurring while she lived in California have not been included in this report. However, these may be of interest to UFO investigators there. She also indicates that some of her children may be undergoing UFO related experiences as well. Thus, this case may be ongoing if she, or any members of her family decide to pursue the matter further. In most cases, the investigation has consisted of witness interviews, plus obtaining context information (weather data, site visits, analysis, available information from local authorities, etc.). In addition, several of the events in this report may be multiple witness events. However, Minnesota MUFON has not yet been able to locate other witnesses to establish this. 2. Sighting and Encounter Descriptions The remainder of this report describes the applicable cases in reverse chronological order. The following cases are parts of this report: (Note: All the reports below were added 9/29/97) 1) Prior Lake, MN CE1 - 27 Jan 1997 2) Hastings, MN CE1 - June 1996 (exact date unknown) 3) St Paul, MN CE3/CE4 - November, 1993 4) Lake Elmo, MN CE1/MA1 - 02 May, 1993 5) White Bear Lake, MN CE1 - May, 1992 (exact date unknown) 6) Lakeside, CA CE3/CE4 - Nov.,1978 (exact date unknown) 7) Kayenta Valley, AZ CE1, CE5, CE4 - 6/69 (exact date unknown)
Date of Sighting: July, 1994 Time of Sighting: Late night (wee hours) Type of Report: CE4 - Apparent close encounter in domain of phenomenon. No UFO observed. Duration of Sighting: Unknown Place of Sighting: Witness's Parents home in Eau Claire, WI Local Evaluation: CE4 - Probable Unexplained Significance: Intermediate Investigator: Craig R. Lang - Field Investigator, MN MUFON Sighting Account: The witness was visiting her mother in Eau Claire, WI. It was on a July night, during the wee hours of the morning, when she suddenly found herself in her front yard, in her nightclothes and bare feet, looking toward her house (see pictures below). She was about 100 feet away from the house, and could see a group of what she remembers as four or five "good sized coyotes or wolves" sitting on the top of her house looking down at her. [CL Note: She was not able to describe the "coyotes" in further detail, but felt they looked "furry". Although she felt they were looking at her, she did not feel she could describe their eyes in detail]. Witness location in yard, view of "coyotes" on roof [drawn by witness and annotated by CL]. Witness being "escorted" by entities in direction of house [drawn by witness and annotated by CL]. Note: the house is a one-story ranch house. Thus the "coyotes" would have been about 15 to 20 feet above the ground, and about 100 to 120 feet away from her. She felt that the night was pretty bright and clear (moonlit?). Being both curious and frightened, she slowly began to walk toward the house. As she did, she suddenly found herself being escorted in the direction of the house by what she felt were two entities behind her, one on either side. She remembers that the entities were extremely close to her, but she did not look directly at them. She can also remember that she was touched or gently guided by them. She suddenly felt as though she was momentarily lifted - as if weightless and rising. She felt a momentary "sick" feeling [CL Note: perhaps like one would have in free fall]. This was momentary - she was then in a white, brightly lighted hallway, about 3 feet wide. She was instructed to walk down the hallway [Note: she felt mentally compelled to comply] toward a doorway approximately 10 feet to her right. She walked through the doorway and entered a small room with a machine on the right side. An entity (whose presence she could discern, but who's form she could not make out) seemed to be standing at the far end of the room, to the left of the machine. She felt that the entity was smaller than she was. Witness sketch [annotated by CL] showing layout of room with her, entity, and machine. She was initially very attracted to the machine (the part to the right), which she indicates seemed like a "fascinating" piece of technology. It had a large number of bright, multicolored (mostly green and red) lights on it. She was briefly allowed to examine the machine but as she did, she suddenly found herself a few feet to the left, in front of the middle portion. (See sketch below) Witness sketch [annotated by CL] showing machine in which she was instructed to place hand. The middle portion did not appear to have the lights and buttons which were present on the right-most machine. She observed what she described as a one to three inch thick flow of "green goo" coming from the machine on the right, through a trough that crossed the lower middle portion, and disappearing into the portion to the left. She was instructed to put her hand in the "goo" which she indicated she found "gross" and repulsive. She initially resisted, but was mentally compelled to do this, however. She felt that overall, the machine was an experiment or game, there for her benefit. It appeared to have no real purpose except to interact with her. It was not necessary for the function of the entities "craft". When she placed her hand in the substance, contrary to her expectations, it "did not feel icky". She felt no resistance, as if she were "putting her hand into air". The substance seemed to behave more like a vapor, having little or no substance. Rather, it seemed to "merge with her hand". She remembers an immediate sense of relief at this. She next found herself in a "fast fade" from her encounter with the "goo machine" to a conference with a number of entities in a larger circular room. The room seemed featureless, with no visible doors or corners. She was accompanied by approximately five entities: a taller "leader" with four smaller entities to its left. The figure below shows a top view of her in relation to the entities. Witness sketch [annotated by CL] showing top view of "conference" with entities. This time she had a full view of the entities. She indicated that she could see their features in great detail. [CL Note: when asked about them, however, she again was unable to describe or draw them.] She felt that the larger entity was about five feet tall, and the other entities were considerably shorter. They were all gray in color and wore tight fitting uniform-like clothes. She got the impression from them that they were emotionless, and that while she was in their presence, her emotions were also suspended. The larger entity appeared to be mystified, and asked her a question which pertained to her health status [The specific nature of the question and health status are requested to remain confidential]. She explained in a one sentence explanation to the tall entity. The tall entity then turned around and repeated a one word version of this to the smaller entities. They then repeated it in what the witness felt was in unison. [CL Note: She felt that all communication was non-spoken, probably telepathic]. The entities did not appear to move during this exchange. However, they did turn to look at the "leader" when he "spoke". Following this, the witness immediately found herself waking up back in her bed. She indicates that she sat up suddenly, thinking "what was that?". Additional Witnesses: None are known. Her mother was in the house, but the witness indicates that her mother did not feel that anything unusual had occurred that night. [CL Note: Her mother does not want to be interviewed regarding this. The witness indicates that her mother is not willing to discuss this topic with her, having unusually strong feelings to this effect.] Weather Conditions: Unknown - not available unless the date of the event can be determined. Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: Assuming that the events which the witness describes are an objective experience, no known phenomena could produce the effects described. Sighting Evaluation: CE4 - Probable Unexplained, Significance: Intermediate If physical evidence or additional witnesses can be found relating to this event, then the significance would be considered high. Return to Witness' Main Report
Date of Sighting: November 1993 Place of Sighting: Witness's current residence (Note: Address on file with investigator) Classification: CE3 or CE4 - There was no UFO sighting associated with this encounter. Local Evaluation: Unexplained - High significance Sighting Account The witness awoke at about 2:00 AM and saw a light in the center of ceiling. At that point, she sat up in bed and saw three entities, each about 3 1/2 feet tall. One was located at the end of the bed and two at right side. Sketch of CE location floorplan She indicates that she normally sleeps on her right side, with her feet out of covers. She was angered by an apparent intrusion into her residence, and when she sat up, she reached her right foot out and kicked one of them. The kick hit the entity in the shoulder area. The entity flew backwards and landed about 3 feet away "on its rear". She indicated that the kick "felt like it was hitting a light weight - not a lot of substance". She described the entities as being each about 3 1/2 feet high. She also noted that they appeared to be floating somewhat above the floor. Witness sketch of entity She indicated that when she kicked the nearest entity, she realized that it really was there (and that this was not merely a dream). She remembered nothing further about the encounter following that point. Aftermath: The witness indicated that she has examined the ceiling many times since, trying to figure out what would cause the light she observed. She has examined the possible sources of reflected light, etc. She has concluded that there was no known source that would for this light. The witness has also indicated that she has not had hypnotic regression, but is considering it in an effort to determine what happened that evening. Additional Witnesses: none Weather Conditions: Unknown - N/A. No outdoor sighting of object or entity was involved Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: No known phenomenon, either natural or manmade appear to account for this encounter. Sighting Evaluation: Evaluation: CE3 or CE4 Status: Unexplained, of high value.
EXPERIENCES OF SHERRY ENTITY EXPERIENCE: In November 1988, my Dad was at a convention, and I slept with my Mom. The alarm clock went off, I popped up, sprung forward, then fell backwards. I couldnít move, couldnít do anything but think. I finally managed to move my foot, then my leg, then sat up on the edge of the bed. Things felt like they were out of sync, like a wave moving. I got up, put my hand on the door, walked toward the bathroom, put my hand on the wall, looked to the right into the dining room, and saw this black figure; it was if it reflected no light at all. Then I went into the bathroom. I got the toothpaste, started to brush my teeth, then thought about the figure. I peeked out of the bathroom, didnít see anything in the dining room any more. The figure had been so black that I saw no features. There is lots of light in our house from streetlights, etc. so I should have been able to see more than I did. The head was rounder than ours. It also seemed bigger but not grossly. It was not my nephew (who was living with us at the time), [he is] too tall. The height of the black figure was about 4 feet 8 inches to 5 feet tall, it was a little shorter than my Mom, who is 5 feet 1-1/2 inches tall. OTHER EXPERIENCES My experiences go back to 1988; the first time was probably in July. It was at night, I heard a sound like thousands of blowtorches. I couldnít move. [She was sleeping on the sofa on the porch at home.] I donít know how long it lasted, it seemed like forever. Then it cut off, and I ran to my parentsí room. I called the police, they informed me that they had just received a call from someone just a couple of blocks from me regarding an unusual sound. Another person I know who lives in the Camden area about a mile from the NSP generator plant, says they may have been letting off steam, but no way should I have heard it, since I live over 6 miles from the plant. I called NSP and they informed me that they only let off steam about every ten years, and they said no way could I have heard it from where I live. Three weeks later my parents were on the porch, around midnight, [they apparently heard the same sound I had heard,] my Dad wanted to go out [and look for it], but the sound cut off suddenly. A month later, [approx. December, 1988] Dad was home, I had the same out- of-sync experience, with the wave thing. [I was starting into the bathroom], Dad said to me "What are you doing? You just went into the bathroom half an hour ago!" He said I was wearing a white night gown. I didnít have a white night gown! Years later, my nephew told me of hearing about abductions. [I hadnít heard of them.] My most recent experience was at the end of March this year (2000). Has anyone ever had the experience of coming back into their body? It felt like something being thrown at me; it bounced off my bed, into me. Our dog was still alive and jumped up, because she heard it. It felt like it hit my chest area, but it hit on the left side of my bed first. It was about early morning, I have it in my journal.
Date of Event: November 1978 Place of Event: Witness former residence in Lakeside, CA (Note: Address is on file with investigator) Classification: CE3 or CE4 - There was no UFO sighting associated with this encounter. Local Evaluation: Unexplained - High significance Sighting Account: This encounter event took place in the witness's house in Lakeside, CA. Witness sketches of the layout of the house and grounds are shown below. The witness had recently sold the house and was preparing to move at the time of the encounter. Sketch of house/grounds layout At approximately two o'clock in the morning she awoke to get a glass of water. Her bedroom was at the back (west) end of the hall with a door right adjacent, that went to the guest room, and a door to the right, that went into her daughters bedroom. As she came out of the bedroom, she saw an entity in the hall a few feet away from her (see house layout sketch and floor plan). She also indicated that the living room (behind the entity) was very brightly lit. She felt that it was unlikely that this light could be due to headlights or the moon, given the layout of the house and grounds, and the brilliant nature of the light. Witness sketch of house floorplan Surprised, she thought something like: "Christ, what the hell is this?". She started to move in the direction of the entity. As she did, the entity moved away from her, toward the living room. It appeared to her to move in response to her movements. The witness felt that she was looking at the back of the entity. It was about 4 1/2 feet tall, and floated about one foot off the floor, for a total of 5 1/2 feet. It had a skinny, light-gray colored body and long, skinny arms. (Note: She did not get a good look at its hands). The entity had no visible hair or clothing except around its head, where it wore a dull grayish white band about 1 1/2 inch wide, which had a white glow at the edges. The entity also appeared to be backlit with a luminescent glow in the manner similar to that surrounding the headband. Additionally, as the entity moved away from her, it appeared to move its arms up and down in a motion which she described as a slow-motion imitation of flapping wings. Witness sketch of entity The entity then turned its head to the left, allowing her to see a profile of its head. She noticed that it had large eyes. It then bowed its left arm at approximately the elbow level and touched the left wall. [Note: She felt that there was no discernable elbow, per se - the arm seemed more curved than bent.] When it did this, the elbow passed into the wall. At the site where it entered, red then blue light or sparks appeared. The entity continued to lean further into the wall and in this same manner, its entire body followed the left arm, passing into the wall. Following the entity's disappearance the witness remembers no further events or details of the encounter. Aftermath: The witness thought at the time that the entity was a ghost. Because of the headband, she felt that it was somehow Native American in nature. She indicated that she subsequently removed and sold the picture on the wall (which contained Native American artifacts) which was hanging at the location where the entity disappeared. Later, when she read the book "Communion" she noticed the similarity between the entity and those described in the book. Additional Witnesses: None are known. The witness's daughter was asleep in one of the bedrooms off the hall from the location of the encounter. It is not known if the daughter experienced any encounter that night. Unfortunately the daughter is not available to be interviewed about this event. Weather Conditions: Unknown. Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: No known phenomenon, either natural or manmade appear to account for this encounter. Sighting Evaluation: Evaluation: CE3 or CE4 Status: Unexplained, of high value.
Date of Sighting: June 1969 Place of Sighting: Kayenta Valley, Northeastern Arizona. Driving N or NE on US Hwy 160 between Flagstaff, AZ and Four Corners. The exact location is not known, but from the sighting description, it is possible that the encounter occurred just north of the intersection with US Hwy 64, shortly prior to arriving at Four Corners. Classification: CE1/CE4/CE5 (close approach of object, with probable abduction, and subsequent medical effects) Local Evaluation: Unexplained - High Significance Sighting Account The witness and her four-year-old daughter were in their car, driving north to northeast from Flagstaff, Arizona, toward four-corners (AZ, CO, UT, NM). She had stopped at approximately 11:30AM MDT for lunch at a cafe just beyond the turnoff to Farmington, NM [Possibly US Hwy 64]. Both had hamburgers, the witness drank three cups of coffee, and her daughter had a Coca Cola. They continued on, and at approximately 2:00 PM MDT she "felt as if something had hit me over the head". The car went off the road, nearly going into the ditch. She got the car back onto the road, but realizing that something was wrong, she pulled off onto the shoulder. She turned off the car, rolled the window down a little bit, told her daughter that she had to close her eyes, and instructed her to "go to sleep". At approximately 3:30 PM MDT, she awoke with her body hanging over the steering wheel. Her head was resting on the wheel with her arms hanging at her side. [Note: the witness subsequently indicated that she feels she was abducted during that 1 1/2 hours]. When she awoke, she looked up to the left and saw a large object, approximately two hundred feet away. She indicates that she felt euphoric: exhilarated, while still relaxed and comfortable, as if she had been drugged. As she watched the object, she realized that this was a flying saucer and she began to feel fear. At this time, she heard a voice saying "Do not be afraid". She was initially frightened by the voice, but then the feeling of euphoria returned. She watched the object for about two to five minutes. She indicates that she was considering getting out of the car and walking toward it. She had her hand on the door handle, ready to get out, when the object began to move away. It moved slowly at first, ascending to about 100 feet, but maintaining the same tilted attitude. It then shot instantaneously away, in a North-Northeasterly direction parallel to the highway. She felt that its size increased as it moved. As it departed, she noticed it momentarily over the lower Rocky mountains. She felt that the object seemed to span between two peaks, with the rim on either side appearing to be directly over a peak. She estimates that the peaks were a mile or more apart at this point, thus making the object about a mile across as well. [Note: She indicated that the object might have actually entered another, larger object, which she had not seen]. At that point the object simply disappeared. She started the car, and after the object disappeared, she resumed her drive as far as Cortez, Colorado. She indicates that she continued to feel a sense of euphoria for the remainder of that drive. As she drove she also continued to look for the object, but did not see it again. Object Description: The witness described the object as a "flying saucer" shape with a dome (see witness sketch of the object below). The object was at least 300 feet in diameter, with a thickness of about 50 feet. At its rim it was about 10 feet thick. The rim was vertical, but appeared somewhat rounded (more so than shown in the sketch). There were no visible seams, or features on the object. The object did not appear to be rotating. The object was tipped toward her, with its near edge being about 30 feet above the ground and its far edge being about 60 feet up. As it initially moved slowly away from her, the motion was smooth (not erratic or choppy). It then departed with an extremely rapid (nearly instantaneous) rate of speed. Witness sketch of object Medical Effects: After the sighting, as they drove to Cortez, CO, they both felt the onset of nausea, which increased as they continued. When they arrived in Cortez, and checked into a motel, they noticed that their skin was extremely red, like a severe sunburn [Note: They had not been in the sun much that day]. Her daughter also had developed a rash of purplish blotches - mostly on her chest and arms. The witness also had these blotches, but not nearly as pronounced. The blotches were about the size of a quarter, and were irregular in shape. They did not appear to be raised. The two went out for dinner that evening, and found that they were both unable to eat. In fact they were both unable to eat for at least a couple of days. The witness's nausea effects continued to some degree for a couple of weeks. Her daughter's illness was more severe and continued for a total of about three weeks. In addition to the nausea, both experienced hair loss. Large chunks of hair came out when combed. This began about 2 to 4 days after sighting. It lasted about two weeks and abated at about the same time as the nausea abated. Additional Witnesses: To her knowledge, the witness was the only one to see the object. Her daughter was in the car, but was asleep at the time and the witness elected not to awaken her. However, both experienced the medical effects described above. At the present time the daughter does not wish to discuss any UFO related topics. The witness describes the area in which they were driving as nearly deserted. Thus, it is unlikely that anybody else observed the object or the encounter. Weather Conditions: The exact weather conditions are not known. However, the witness described the sky as clear. Natural and Manmade Phenomena Check: In my view, no known phenomena, either natural or human-made, could explain the events and the subsequent medical effects, which the witnesses describes. Sighting Evaluation: This sighting has multiple classifications: CE1 - Close approach of object CE4 - Missing time, Probable Abduction CE5 - Medical Effects - The description suggests significant exposure to some form of radiation or chemical toxicity. Evaluation: Unexplained. Significance: Due to the extraordinary nature of the encounter, I feel that the significance should be rated as "high".
