The man was camping with a friend in Wyoming in the US when he saw a “green, glowing ball about the size of a basketball” hovering near to his base, he said. The unnamed man gave a vivid account to the UFO investigation network MUFON, and said it all started when he could not sleep, and saw “two large, saucer-shaped craft moving vertically in unison on the horizon.” He continued: “I then noticed a green glowing object about the size of a baseball, within 50 yards of me.
“There was something resembling a bag of about two feet in length below the ball, but I could never get a clear look at it.”
The man then tried to wake his friend up, but to no success, so he began observing the objects again.
He said: “I tried repeatedly to figure out what this object was doing, with no success. It would go from hovering to vibrating to moving very fast, seemingly at random and with no discernible purpose. I remember saying aloud to myself, ‘this cannot be real.’
“As if it heard me or read my thought, it immediately moved east approximately 400 yards, then returned to hover over me at approximately 40 yards.”
At this point, he said his memory stopped.
In his report to MUFON, he continued: “I woke up in my sleeping bag the next morning. My hunting partner asked if I’d tried to wake him saying something about lights?
“I told him it was nothing, just a meteor. At that point I was sure he wouldn’t believe me. I have a feeling of losing time and memory.
“My eyes were irritated and red for two days afterward. My throat and mouth were extremely sore for four or five days, and my lower lip appeared burned, turning white, then peeling, with five small scabs on it.
“My ears also rang for several days. I have never had any previous UFO experiences and this episode has left me quite unnerved.”
Some people believe this is clear evidence of an alien abduction.
User Mmiller wrote on the original report: “This has all the signs of a abduction case if I ever saw one.
“My suggestion is to do hypnotic regression and find out what happened, don’t wait years and years. Your camping partner was probably picked up as well.”
Chief investigators for MUFON, State Director Richard Beckwith and Field Investigator Gregory Vasquez, could not confirm the authenticity of the claim however.
They wrote: “There are a number of airports around that area, and without further information from the witness, the two saucer-like craft cannot be verified as potential conventional aircraft or unknown aerial vehicles (UAVs).
“The focus of this investigation is based on the green object or orb, which was close to the witness and therefore likely better identified by him.
“Due to the remoteness of the location and the close proximity to the witness, the object was not likely a drone, which would be heard.
“The physical effects may be coincidental to the sighting, but without further discussion with the witness, are not able to be verified.
“Based on the submitted description of the green object or orb, the disposition of the case is Unknown – Other.”
