Virginia Beach, Virginia, 1976
Virginia Beach VA. November 6, 1976 – Mrs. Barbara Nielsen spotted a bell shaped UFO which hovered approximately two feet off the ground in her backyard. The craft had a light on top that blinked on and off slowly from red to white. It had rectangular windows near the bottom which emitted a phosphorescent light. The object rotated in a counter-clockwise direction, while it tipped up along its vertical axis. The UFO measured five feet high, and five feet wide. The primary eyewitness noticed a faint humming sound emanating from the craft. The bottom of the object was comprised of multiple yellow colored lights. There were black symbols running across the center section (similar to the “newsflash” text seen in Times Square). Source – Wendelle Stevens collection
Gulf Breeze, Florida, 1987
November 11, 1987 Gulf Breeze Florida – At dusk, Ed Walters (successful businessman) observed a glow in the southwest sky from inside his home. Going outside to investigate further, he saw a very unusual object which prompted him to quickly return inside to pick up his Polaroid camera. Mr. Walters snapped four photos of the object, and then ran out of film. As he took each photo, he dropped them on the driveway. Returning inside to obtain more film, he was able to get an additional photograph of the UFO as it approached his position. Then, Ed went into the street and was about to take another shot, when he was shocked to find himself frozen in a blue beam of light. He was immobilized for approximately ten seconds, and reported the following effects: his eyebrows would not move, he could not expand his chest, felt like he was going to die, he could barely breathe. Next, he felt himself being lifted off the road within the blue beam of light, and was dropped from an altitude of approximately three feet. Eventually Ed’s wife drove up in her van, and helped him pick up the photos off the driveway. She immediately noted that he smelled like “cinnamon and ammonia”. Investigated by MUFON, and documented by NICAP.
Anderson, South Carolina, 1980
In the early morning hours of September 11, 1980 Mr. Jerry McAllister (resident of Anderson, South Carolina) was awakened by a brilliant light. He quickly jumped out of bed, and witnessed a large luminous object hovering in a horizontal position. Mr. McAllister also alerted his wife, and urged her to view the object as well. The craft was no more than 150 feet away, and approximately forty feet above the tree-tops. The object was completely surrounded with multiple halogen-like headlights which lit up the surrounding area like day, and it emitted an ear-shattering noise. Above the lights were a row of rectangular shaped windows which emanated a deep purple colored light, and measured 6’ X 8’. There was a smooth raised “seam” located immediately above the windows, which ran along the entire circumference of the object. The bottom surface of the craft was flat and dark in color. A small red light was connected to a curved pipe-like structure that was located on the bottom of the craft. Mr. Carter contacted the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, and Deputy Mike Burton arrived at the scene in time to witness the UFO’s departure. Residual effects on the witnesses from the craft included: eye irritation, ringing in the ears, and headaches. Evidence of dangerous radiation was found in the nearby soil where the craft had hovered, and also on pine needles. A recommendation was made that the area under the ship’s hovering position be roped off. Source – Wendelle Stevens collection (confirmed by NICAP).
