"There were two rows of holes on its periphery, about 30 centimeters in circumference. The space between the two rows was about 0.45 meters. On the top of this metal object was a black conical tower about three meters high.

Stephen told a reporter they could clearly see every detail: “The object was glistening and it was a silvery milky colour. You could tell the outline of it very plainly indeed and see portholes along the upper part, and a thing which looked like a hatch on top. There were three bumps underneath and the centre of the underneath part was of a darker colour. I took the first picture when it was moving very slowly about three or four hundred yards away and then it disappeared from my view as there was some undergrowth in the way. When it came into sight again I took another picture but then it suddenly went up into the sky in a great swish. As it went upwards it tilted and I could see the underneath side more clearly. There was some sort of whistling sound as it went up which I think was the wind.”

Dipl.-meteorologist Elizabeth Klarer. A moment later she recognized the metallic disc in the dark-clouded sky, obviously slowly approaching. Immediately, like in a reflex action, Elizabeth shot seven photos before the disc suddenly shot away. In the same moment a thunderstorm started, a shower of hail went over the field. Elizabeth Klarer confirmed the authenticity of her photos in an notarized affidavit. She stood behind her story until she died in February 1994, in the age of 83 years.

Four of the seven UFO photos taken by Elizabeth Klarer on July 17, 1956 - enlargements. Note that the cloud formations did not change remarkably on the last two photos, indicating that they were shot within seconds. The disc seems to follow a clean curve, ruling out the possibility of a frisbee or a hub cap thrown into the air.

Sketch of the UFO, based on a drawing supplied by Joe Simonton. (credit: FSR)

Witness: Joe Simonton. He went into the yard and saw a flying saucer drop out of the sky and hover over his farm. It was silver and "brighter than chrome," 12 feet in height and 30 feet in diameter. On one edge were what appeared to be exhaust pipes, 6 or 7 inches in diameter.

The interior of the UFO was dull black, even the three "extremely beautiful" instrument panels, and had the appearance of wrought iron. The contrast between the dark interior and shiny exterior so fascinated Simonton that he later said that he "would love to have a room painted in the same way."

The Willow Grove UFO based on witness sketch in RAAF files. (credit: Chalker)

Witness: Charles Brew, Trevor Brew. It was about eight metres in diameter and three metres high. The top section appeared to be a transparent dome of a glass-like material, from which protruded a two metre high mast or aerial. The 'aerial' appeared to be as thick as a broom and resembled bright chrome. The top portion of the disc itself was battleship grey in colour and appeared to be of metallic lustre. The base or underside section glowed with a pale blue colour and had 'scoop-like protuberances around the outside edge'. This section rotated slowly at about one revolution per second. This spinning motion apparently caused the protuberances to generate a swishing noise, somewhat like a turbine noise, that was clearly audible not only to Brew but also to his son Trevor, who was located inside the shed near the operating diesel-powered milking machine units.

A disc-shaped, domed object was revealed hanging in mid-air in front of them. It had six brightly lit windows and was some 30 feet (9 meters) wide; metallic in appearance, it had a number of sections that were joined together with rivets and seams. The dome was also metallic, but it was darker and had no rivets. The object was rocking gently to and fro. Suddenly a multicolored band began to rotate inside the windows and a witish mist thickened around the object, which emitted a faint hum. The witnesses became aware of a sulfurous smell.

As the band inside the craft rotated faster and faster, they watched while the disc gradually became enveloped in a white mist until all could be seen was an orange-colored cloud.

Crowe guessed the object's diameter at 20 feet, and he could now see a glowing blue-green hue rim around it, with the craft's two parts a dullish gray. The top appeared to be a transparent dome. The disc shaped craft was sitting silently. The only sound he heard at the time was barking from some dogs. They were barking directly at the object. Crowe had made his first observations at several hundred feet, and as he came to within about 60 feet, the object lifted itself from the ground. Crowe could now hear a sound..a sound like air being forced out of a balloon.

Drawing made by Deputy Strauch to indicate details he visually saw with the binoculars.

Strauch stated: "The round top of the dome was a metallic-silver gray that reflected the rays of the setting sun, turning the object into a large orange ball. Surrounding the dome were four small portholes that emitted a bright yellow light. Just below the window or ports was an area that glowed a light blue. This light seemed to be a reflection of some inner light or perhaps exhaust. From the edge of the blue light's reflection to the edge of the flat saucer-like surface (outer edge), the outer ring was rotating counterclockwise, causing it to throw it off an aurora or halo of light that changed from orange to white with an overall tinge of blue and green. The extreme outer edge of the saucer glowed a bright orange, and this part did not move or rotate." - Coral & Jim Lorenzen (18)

Shaped like two metallic saucers face to face, and of aluminum like appearance, it had a clear bubble like canopy on the edge of the upper disc facing him; from elongated holes around the rim orange flames were issuing. Inside the canopy, illuminated by a greenish light, he could see the silhouettes of two "lobster claw-like" hands. The witness walked toward it yelling and waving his arms, where upon it moved slowly and silently away; then it began to spin rapidly with a loud whirring sound, tilted at an angle of 30-45 degrees, and took off at a very high speed. He noticed a smell lingering in the air like that from a lighted match. Raymond Fowler for Nicap http://www.ufoinfo.com/humanoid/humanoid1990.shtml

He prepared his 4" X 5" Press Camera, set it at F8 and 1/100 shutter speed, and snapped one good black and white picture of the object. It appeared stationary or was moving very little at the time of the photograph.

A salesman (Warren Smith) and two companions, one a 16 y/o boy. Someone spotted a disc-shaped object moving through the air above the tall evergreens. The salesman readied his camera and snapped photographs of the UFO.
The object was described as being “shiny, and approximately 25-feet in diameter.” It had a “silvery hone to it.” One particularly interesting assertion that was made by the RAF was that the UFO object in the photograph “had a toroidal shape. Only the blurred image (plate 62) is pitched up towards the observers, and a light shone not quite centered in the dark disk can be interpreted as a highlight, as opposed to a central hole.”

The red lights, which were blinking, were shining out from windows in the object. The UFO appeared to be a mere 6 to 8 feet above the road, and was hovering in the air with a slight tilt. Then the object began to slowly ascend, making a siren kind of noise, and issuing a flame-like display from the underside.

On Tuesday, February 8, Mrs. Gayle Rodriguez and her son, Brian, watched a similar UFO show by a rather differently shaped object. Driving east on St. Bernard highway they saw a brightly lit silvery colored craft which flew across the highway in front of them and began a course parallel to the road.

Its movement was in uneven spurts, shooting forward and then stopping. On one stop it tilted toward the car. It was shaped like an upside down saucer with a flat bottom and a dome on top in the middle. Near the bottom edge could be seen a row of individual lights which merged into a single blur when rotating. The lights changed color, alternating between blue, green and bright white. Atop the dome were three lights on the ends of which appeared to be antenna: two small white lights, and one larger red light.

The object was completely smooth without any window nor trap door, with only a kind of "projecting port-hole in the shape of half-moon right at the place where the bulge of the cupola started." The maximum thickness of the craft without counting the landing feet was approximately 1.50 meters.

Soon she found herself in a clearing in a wooded area. Nearby sat a silvery metallic disc resting on three legs. A light shone on her and she sees folding steps descend from the object. She is drawn into the craft and through several rooms until she reaches a platform, made out of padded white silver chrome and lays down on it. Half a dozen men then appear; these are described as six-foot one inch tall, well built, long blond hair, high cheekbones, and blue eyes. They wore tight-fitting brown jumpsuits with matching shoes and belt, with a pale yellow stole draped over one shoulder. They also displayed a winged emblem on the chest area resembling a "hawk-eagle" head in center and wings on each side. She is then led out to the door and suddenly finds herself in her car.

Witness: Alfred Burtoo. Climbing up a set of steps into the saucer, Burtoo discovered that the ceiling was so low he had to stoop. He found himself inside a black, metallic octagonal chamber, which smelt slightly of decaying meat.

September 23, 1984. Cordoba to Resistensia, Argentina A large disc-shaped UFO followed a Piper airplane from Cordoba to Resistensia, Argentina. It reportedly maneuvered at great speed, and changed color from silver to orange. The plane's compass oscillated between 0.5 and 270 degrees, and there were several other variations noted in other onboard instruments.

Metallic

January 12, 1986. Valparaiso, Indiana
"I was standing looking out my living room window. The erratic movement of a ball-type thing drew my attention. At first I thought it was a balloon, but continued observation proved it to be something metallic. It also appeared to be a more controlled flight than what a balloon would have been. After I realized that it wasn't a balloon, I felt excited, perhaps a little afraid. It came in high and on its side (which made him think it was a balloon). It crossed the street and did a lot of erratic things over the field (dipped, slowed, sped up, circled) then took off smoothly and rapidly over some high- voltage lines, and off into the horizon in the east. When it flipped to one side, it appeared shiny. I lost sight of it when it got too small, moved too far away to see." Sky was overcast with light rain.

July, 1986/ 1987. Fort Carson, Colorado
It was a huge silver or light gray disc! Not a shiny silver, but more like a flat silver-gray color. Just a plain underside! It was hovering below the lowest level clouds! The huge disc, which was sort-of oblate spheroid shape. I could see the entire disc bottom, and the angle was tilted to a degree, with the far side in the down position.

August 12, 1989. Near Kapustin Yar range, Astrakhan or Volgograd region, Russia The disk was about 5 to 8 meters in diameter, convex, shaped like a lens. Its surface was ideally smooth, seamless, silver metallic, indicating evident non-terrestrial technology, with a broad and slight not jutting gradual dome on top connected in the same line with the rest of the hull and a broad cylindrical base.

March 7, 1990. Pocomoke Sound, Virginia Two young boys were retrieving groceries from the car when they noticed a bright light approaching at great speed emitting a jet-like sound. It also emitted fuzzy balls of blue light over a field, which then dissipated before hitting the ground. The light was now a domed metallic disc shaped object that now hovered above the witnesses. A bright white beam of light shone on one of the witnesses while the other ran and hid under the car. Multiple beams of light now circled the car. The domed disc now slid back a panel revealing two short humanoids, described as having gray wrinkled sink and claw-like hands. A third humanoid now appeared and moved with a mechanical like motion as he joined the other two. The dome then closed and the disc departed with the same jet-like roar. An unconfirmed account indicated that the nearby NASA facility at Wallops Island had lost its radar about the same time.

Ocotlán is to 60 km of Guadalajara, patch to the shore of the Lake of Chapala.

Captain Daniel Monraz (Yahoo! Babel Fish translation):

Later I realized that the shades of the trees of down did not correspond with “the reflection”, and when I moved the parasol one I could see clearly that it was a very brilloso plate that was above of the airplane, was a disc silverplated with a black wheel down, that came swinging as if it went away to fall.

Thus it is, was the classic flying, similar subject of gossip to two stuck plates, as two copper dippers of which they are used to stew carnitas. Between 15 and 20 meters of diameter.

Ricky Sorrells 2nd UFO sketch. Cylinder indentation.

Written transcript of Ricky Sorrells UFO description on Larry King:

"I started looking at it. There were no bolts, no rivets, no welded seams, it was smooth, it was like a barn gray. It had cones protruding, going up into it, bigger at the bottom, going up to smaller at the top. It took off like this [shows motion with his hand]. It remained flat and took off at a 45 degree angle."

“I don’t know how you can make a piece of metal that large with no bolts, rivets, seams or welds. I’ve never seen anything like this.”
