Entire Family Witness Landed UFO -

18 posts in this topic

Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy describes a very strange UFO incident in the video below where an entire family witnessed a landed object on the road outside their farm in Mellen, Wisconsin on March 13th, 1975- the object was reported to be making a large banging noise (whilst also emitting a high pitched whining sound) and the witness sketch is posted below along with the main report from the APRO bulletin and other information about animal behaviour and landing trace evidence.

The case becomes more intriguing when it's stated that later that same evening the local sheriff and seven other deputies chased several brightly lit objects down local county roads which 'darted about the sky'- one police officer said that the light emitted by one of the objects was so intense he could 'read a newspaper by it' and there were also reports of EM effects on the patrol car's police radio.

Wisconsin Officers Report Multiple Sightings of UFOs

Ashland, WI (AP) - Authorities in a four-county area of Northern Wisconsin have reported several recent sightings of unidentified flying objects, with nine deputies in Ashland and Iron counties saying they saw four UFOs at one time.

At the time of the sightings, officials said, police radios were garbled or went out of service and witnesses said they saw the objects moving, changing colors, and heading toward a common position in the sky.

Authorities at the nearby Duluth airport said there was no radar contact made at the time, late in the evening of March 13.

Ashland County Sheriff Joe Croteau said "telephones were ringing off the hook from citizens who also saw the objects". Sightings were also reported in Douglas and Price counties.

A rural Mellen resident, Mrs. Phil Baker and her daughter, Jane, 15, told authorities "an object" landed on a road near their home, made noises and high-pitched sounds, and had red and green lights around it.

Ashland County Undersheriff George Ree, who investigated, said he found no evidence of a landing. He left their home and drove about two miles to meet with deputies. Then, he said, he and the deputies saw four UFOs, one brighter than the others. They said the brightest one moved, changed colors, and then became stationary while three smaller objects headed toward it.

"I didn't want to believe what I was seeing," Phil Baker said later. "There was this circular object about twelve feet across with red and bluish-green lights around the outside and in the center was an opening like a door with a real brilliant light coming from inside."

“I felt I could've looked inside if I'd been closer, but I couldn't see any details. It made a high whiny, sing-songy noise. I never heard a sound like that before."

Police UFO Chase:

"We saw one object come from the south going in a northerly direction," Ree said. "This was the second one, and it was a little lower than the first. We watched these two for maybe a half hour.

“Then a third one came from the north going south, and that was the lowest one of all. We could see different colored lights on it. That one stayed in the air for approximately ten or fifteen minutes, just moving, sort of doing a jig, going up and down, making a big ‘U’ and going up and down again.

"We had two more cars on U.S. 2 in the northern part of Ashland County and I was transmitting to the deputies in that location. Two deputies were watching from a fire tower on Birch Hill and another, Drolson, was northwest of them on Lake Superior when one of these objects we were watching took off at a very high rate of speed.

“I radioed to Drolson and told him, 'It's going your way,' and all of a sudden he said, 'I see it coming–' and his radio went blank..

I loved In Search Of.

But let me guess, Nimoy ended the episode by saying "experts feel that we're only a year or two away from a major breakthrough in this area".

Thanks for the replies and this case is certainly an intriguing one, especialy when you factor in the incoming police reports shortly after the initial sighting, there's a pdf database here about physical trace cases and, although it mentions other cases of objects landing on snow, there's not realy any further information about the 'fluffed' aspect -page 11 of the the MUFON journal below has more about the Baker case though and it's certainly an interesting read.

Cheers.

New link for removed OP video and a similar UFO report to the Mellen object described in the same area 11 days earlier:

March 2, 1975; Elmwood, WS

8:00 p.m. A UFO attempted to land in front of a car with the Forster family inside, while the children in the car screamed. The UFO was a disc the size of a car, white in color with lights all around it, and sticklike legs or landing gear. In their panic they repeatedly honked their car horn, which alerted farmer Roger Weber, who came out of his farmhouse and guided the family home. The UFO flew off.

[T]he object was reported to be making a large banging noise (whilst also emitting a high pitched whining sound)....

So, were all the Ford products in the area accounted for? :P

I love these kind of cases. Fascinated how they said that the majority sightings appear in rural areas. Could this be to do with low EM radiation compared with large cities? The Medford case was interesting because of the apparent damage to the ground. A very familiar event in UFO sightings.

Nice one.

Hey, zoser..... did you ever answer the question about the cases you believe is ET related?

Is there a case that you have debunked? One that even you find a little "too much"?

Billy Meier? Bob Lazar?

I'm only really interested in the unexplainable I'm afraid. That's why I'm here. What's on your mind?

He was asking if you believe what Billy Meier, or, Bob Lazar claims to have experienced. Their eye witness testimony is on youtube you know.

Bob Lazar yes, Billy Meier I doubt it. Bob Lazar was investigated quite thoroughly (see my recent thread 'Area 51 Exposed') and even though attempts to trace his work history met with a brick wall response, it turned out that the research authorities that employed him were part of some denial cover up. In the end the claims did check out. I am not sure if Billy Meier has been technically debunked, but I didn't get a good feeling about him. On first analysis George Adamsky's evidence looks a little dubious however the trouble with this case is that there are a lot of witnessed that testify to the genuineness of the contacts if you watch the documentaries. So I keep an open mind about George.
