A Michigan witness recalls a UFO incident from 1966 in Carson City when she and a friend stepped into a local field and discovered a disc UFO on the ground, according to testimony in Case 63749 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness remembers that it was a clear day when she and her cousin – both 7 years old – entered a small enclosed field along the edge of town and saw the UFO on the ground.
“There were some pieces of metal along the tree line from a tornado and at first I thought it was one of those,” the witness stated.
But then the object moved.
“We approached and it zipped up in a zigzag manner. It was silver and had a little bit of heat wave shimmer. I don’t remember any features as it happened quickly.”
The witnesses’ mother recalls the children returned home “wound up” and she went back to the field to investigate their claims.
“She found a flattened, burnt area with holes like a coffee can was shoved in the ground.”
The witnesses does not recall being afraid of the UFO or the experience.
“I don’t remember being afraid, but I was scared of the fuel oil tank on legs after that and kept dreaming about a long, flat chicken coop back there.”
The witness provided one original illustration of the event with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 5, 2015.
Carson City is a city in Montcalm County, MI, population 1,093.
Michigan is currently a UFO Alert Level 5 – with 0.71 sightings per million population based on MUFON February 2015 statistics. Michigan received a total of seven UFO reports in February.

Roger, I’d really like to purchase that picture.
Would the artist/witness be accessible through a website such as Etsy or DeviantArt?
I’m serious about this, as I intend to frame it properly and hang it where it can be seen and appreciated.
Kevin – Please email me privately at email@example.com. Thanks for our interest.
One of the best works of art I’ve seen associated with a UFO sighting.
I am a Mufon field investigator in New Hampshire. My brother and I also saw a similar object in 1966. We lived in Battle Creek, Mi at the time.
I painted the picture
I’d like to hear from Mr Podell.
I wish Aliens would take me…..
Ok….. I also lived in battle creek michigan in 64 to 83…. In 69 to 70 I had a visit and my parents at that time witnessed this activity. After my encounter with what ever they were in which I was visited twice for two nights in the summer time…… I was visited by the air force by a man they called radar and I was given some tests by him that I passed with ease. Then a week afterwards my mom was directed to take me to an air force medical group to have an object removed from my right nasal passage and was tested again for a few weeks afterwards at which I passed each test with ease and they consisted of a lot of math…symbols….and mapping. From my visits on in time more and more abilities came to surface…. I will explain more later on… Please contact me somehow if you’d like to know what happened after time passed and what was done with me.
Nancy McLaughlin I also painted pictures of my visitors and at that time I was 5 to 6 years old. To this day I can draw pictures of what was removed from my nasal passage. From that time on there wasn’t anything I couldn’t picture in my mind and put it on paper with exact measurements and details. I had never before that could draw sketch or paint. A lot of things surfaced for me after that.
If any of you want to purchase a painting from me, of my experience with seeing a UFO when I was 10 (with my Mom), let me know. It may be a challenge to paint it because it was a spiritual experience even though it was real, I don’t know if my painting can actually capture the feeling. but my text is 281-804-8079. Thanks.
