Number of witnesses: 3+
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Disk/Mushroom.

Full Description of event/sighting: My grandparents and my mother lived on a farm in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico just outside from the town. My grandparents were the caretakers of a farm that belong to a well to family of a famous literature/poet writer; which his books are still being used in the schools today.

On or around July 1942 at approximately 10:00 p.m., my grandparents and mother heard an explosion and felt a sudden rise of heat. They ran to the window and saw what they thought was a meteorite, but what they really saw was a spacecraft glowing red from the heat at a distance at approx. 700 feet away, on a open field from the house They were afraid, and waited until the morning. When they went out to see the object there was white smoke coming out from the middle of it. The object was approx. 16 feet diameter the color was light gray metal with a marble like texture of design. In the center of the object was hallow were the white smoke was coming out. It seemed that something was missing from the center. My grand parents did not know what to do, so they waited until their friend who was an American Catholic Priest, who would visit them almost everyday around the same time approx. 11:00 a.m. or sometimes he would stay overnight.

The priest told my grandparents not to go outside that he would take care of everything. He returned and waited with my grandparents, after a while the military came with trucks, they were from Fort Buchanan military base. The priest went outside and after sometime he returned with several military men at the door, the military men went to the kitchen spoke with my grandparents and the priest. Frankly I really don't know what was said at that point my mother was told to leave the room.

After the military left with the object. the priest, my grandparents and my mother were talking about the incident. The American priest told them that they should never speak to anyone about what happened. That they should stay indoors at night because he did not know what happened to the occupants of the spacecraft. He said that they were very lucky that the object did not hit the house, they should thank god. He also said that the object was not from this world. The object did leave a black marking on the field of grass.

Update: Some of my family members visited Toa Alta, PR recently and stated that the writer has past away, the farm is residential community, and that my grandmother stated before she passed away that the spacecraft had being(s) not from earth.

Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
