Go Back Report # 1533



March 24, 1966; Cook, MN


6:50 p.m. CST. A trapper and guide saw an oval object with glass dome on the front approach angling downward, flashing lights visible around its center, and emitting a loud generator-like humming sound. The object was rotating clockwise around a horizontal axis. It appeared to land in the distance. Next day a large melted oval area about 35 feet by 100 feet and apparent landing gear or skid marks (physical traces) were found in the snow at the landing site. (NICAP report.)
