       One other similar incident was received via mail from a lady who wishes to remain anonymous. The narrative is contained in Mrs. Lorenzen's book, Shadow of the Unknown, Signet Books, Chapter 11, "Airborne Anomalies." Incidentally, the book is now out of print so we present the entire narrative:

       At Eagle Point, Oregon, in February, 1958, Mrs. M. walked to her kitchen window and looked out toward the road in front of her house. She saw a huge object hovering from 30 to 40 feet above a lake of backed-up rain water near the irrigation ditch there. The color of the object was amber "as if it was hot," she said, and it presented a huge and strange appearance. A funnel-like contraption extended down into the water below the object which itself was "like a disk," and appeared to be about 500-600 feet in diameter. The underside of the disk was flat except where the funnel was attached, and at the outer edges of this bottom portion were what appeared to be large round rollers "like huge marbles" spaced about 10 to 15 feet apart. Mrs. M. did not count these rollers but was certain that there were a large number of them.

       She was not able to discern any configuration of the top of the object except that it was round, and she got the impression that it merely sloped down to the edges; no dome was visible. She and her four-year-old son watched the object hovering there making a humming sound for a total of about 20 minutes, then the "funnel" retracted up into the object and only a huge bulge was left where it had been. After this operation was completed, the whole bulk moved slowly straight up into the air until they couldn't see it anymore because of the limiting edges of the window frame. "As it lifted up," Mrs. M. said, "it seemed to take the fog with it." Then, she said, as soon as the UFO was gone, the sun came out and shone brightly until about 4 P.M. that afternoon when the fog closed in again.

       This is a most interesting report because it indicates that the object witnessed by Mrs. M. was doing something in relation to the water on the ground. It is not likely that the water was being drained because it was only about two feet deep at the deepest point. The object seemed to have been there long enough and had enough capacity (in relation to its size) to have nearly drained the pond if that had been the purpose. Mrs. M. said that she felt that the UFO could have contained "three or four of the measurements" of her house - it was that huge.
