Go Back Report # 1565


July 1, 1988; Aegna Island, Tallinn, Estonia     

11:30 PM. Two young witnesses saw an approaching disc-shaped object in the sky. Soon the object stopped over the harbor. Frightened, the boys hid in their summerhouse. Soon curiosity took over and both went outside again. They saw that the silvery object emitted colorful rays of light in three different directions and was hovering now 20 to 30 meters in the air. A hat-shaped object about 3 meters in diameter now emerged from the bottom of the larger object and descended, landing next to a rock. In the glowing light a small emerald green-colored humanoid with a helmet-like headgear and a black box-like instrument in its hand could now be seen. It seemed to hop from stone to stone in the shallow water. The humanoid then stopped and placed the black box in the water. After retrieving the black box, the humanoid sort of slid backwards and re-entered the small hat-shaped craft, which quickly rose and entered the larger hovering object. This object then flew away at incredible speed. For about a week after the incident, both boys were troubled with headaches and general malaise, which soon disappeared.
