Go Back Report # 1584


Oct. 17, 1973; Connersville, IN           

8:00 p.m. An 11-year-old girl and her cousin had been making a scarecrow in the front yard for Halloween. They heard a humming sound and thought that it was an airplane, but when the object that was producing the noise stopped dead above them, the humming quit. The object was saucer-shaped, silver gray on top, with bright lights along the bottom. They were so shocked that they didn't know what to do. So they just stood there and stared at it until what they described as "fogs" started to come out of the craft, then they ran into the house. There was a "pfft" sound when the "substance" was ejected. When their curiosity got the better of them, they went back into the yard. Three glowing white "fogs" or objects had come out of the object and one had circled the field. After this, the craft started to hum and headed towards the woods in the northeast. After a total of three minutes, the object went below the tree-line and was lost to view. Witness had scoop mark-type scar on her leg below her knee.
