1977 - A cigar-shaped, metallic object appeared in the sky over Nelson, Lancashire, England at 3:10 a.m., so the two witnesses stopped their car for a better look. The UFO had lights at either end that were changing color and the entire object was surrounded by a gray mist. The witnesses heard a sound they described as being like the tide coming in and going out. As the object came quite close, their car's engine stopped and the headlights dimmed. After five minutes, the object flew off and the car could be restarted. Both of the witnesses came down with headaches shortly after the sighting. (FSR, Vol. 23, No. 2)

They believe the UFO intended to harm them. (Sources: Jerome Clark, UFO Calendar 1999; Bob Pratt, UFO Danger Zone: Terror and Death in Brazil--Where Next?, p. 216).

Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1992, case 626, citing Ole Jonny Braene, UFO Norge; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 15676, citing Jerome Clark).
