A few UFO accounts you may find interesting

In the 1967 Dell Flying Saucers/UFO Reports for March/April (used for my previous posting here) there are a number of interesting even humorous tales of UFO encounters from John Keel [Page 57 ff.]

A December 21, 1964 event involved a gunsmith, Horace Burns. From Grottoes,Virginia.

Mr. Burns “told of seeing a huge object about 125 feet in diameter land near Highway 250. His car engine stalled … as the great metallic thing which looked like ‘an old fashioned bee hive’ settled in a field near the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center outside of Fisherville, Va. It had a bluish glow around its base … and remained on the ground for about 90 seconds. After [it flew] off … he was able to restart his car.” [Pages 57/58 of the magazine]

The Air Force allegedly visited the field where the object supposedly landed but the official report in Blue Book says the Air Force “had been unable to find ‘evidence that a vehicle had landed in the field.’” [Page 58]

On December 29, 1964, the radar installation at the Patuxent Naval Air Station, Maryland, “picked up two unidentified objects flying over the … Rappahannock River … traveling at 4,800 miles an hour and one of them performed a 180-degree turn in the space of five miles … The Navy passed their detailed report on to the Air Force for analysis, and in late January, 1965, the incident was explained as ‘false radar returns.’”
[ibid, Page 58]

“On February 1, 1965. a motorist in Salem, Va. Called the police and breathlessly told of seeing ‘a little green man’ on the outskirts of town. Four heavily armed policemen rushed to the scene and were taken aback when they saw a tiny glowing figure in a field. Approaching it cautiously, they surrounded it and arrested it at gunpoint, hauling it off triumphantly to the city hall. This little man turned out to be a collection of cardboard boxes covered with green cloth, with a half-gallon plastic jug for a head. A flashlight was mounted inside the jug to produce a glow….[ibid Haha, Page 60]

The Villas [sic] Boas case was covered as well as the Hill abduction (and Betty’s medical procedure), along with the Sagan/Shklovsky book Intelligent Life in the Universe, and this drawing, from England, of a flying disk, with nothing in the text, that I could see, about the  drawing.
(There are a few other fascinating accounts in the article that I may deal with upcoming.)
