1938, Pialia, Epirus, Greece, Vassilis Zorbas:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The Greek ufologist Thanassis Vembos said that according to the investigator Antonis Bousboukis, in the village of Pialia, Pindos Mountains, Epirus, North-West Greece, one night in 1938, Mr. Vassilis Zorbas, a farmer, went to his clover field near the little chapel of the Holy Trinity, and heard a loud bang that seemed to come from a nearby creek.

At first, he could not see anything that could explain the sound. Later, he saw a small 1-meter-tall humanoid creature, wearing a black hooded dress, with a shining face. The creature stayed a moment before him, then entered the chapel and disappeared.

Time: night

Witness: Mr. Vassilis Zorbas, farmer.

The witness was going to his trefoil field. Near the small chapel of the Holy Trinity he heard a loud bang, which seemed to come from a nearby creek.

Points to consider:

One may wonder what this is sipped to have to do with UFOs, and whther it would no be just some ivented folk tale about some "devil".
