Go Back Report # 1294


Log #120592C: September 16, 1992, 12:30 a.m. near the city of Elk River, MN. Investigators Gary Thrash and Bill McNeff. Mr. "T" was driving east toward County Road 70, which is NE of Elk River. A thunderstorm was in full swing with lightning flashes all around. As the lightning flashed, he could see a huge white disc formation against the dark clouds. Each time the lightning flashed the disc would "stick out like a sore thumb." The man turned north on County Road 70 and when he had driven about two and one half miles, he came to a bend in the road. As he rounded the bend, he got the surprise of his life. "There hanging over a semi-open area in the woods was a huge UFO. It was about the size of a large passenger jet." He could see that the object was disc shaped with a dark color outline. No windows were noted but the perimeter of the bottom edge of the craft was fully lit. There were four round white lights spaced evenly around the outside of the bottom. Between each white light, smaller green and red lights were spaced so that there were white-green-red-green-white lights. All lights were steady and unblinking. Mr. "T" said the craft was beautiful to look at as it hovered silently. "The rain was coming down and the wind was blowing at a good clip. It struck me odd that the rain seemed to stop about a foot above the craft." He drove very slowly as he watched the object as it hovered 100 feet from the ground, 200 feet from the road. He watched the object for more than a minute and a half.
