August 8, 1947, Modesto, California, USA, a child and his grandmother:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Someone, under nonimty, reported by the web to the NAtional UFO Reporting Center website in 2001, that on August 8, 1947 - the date being certainly approximate - he had odd experiences in Modesto, California. This witness write;

"My grandmother woke me up to go to the front house get my uncle to check on the bright blueish light out behind our cottage. I was scared to get wake my uncle so I WENT OUT BACK. I looked up and there was a large disk object hoovering over head with multi colored lights on it. The next thing I know I am being woke up to explain how my aunts vegetable and flower garden are totally distroyed. Completely to dried to ash like conditrion. My grandmother tried to tell them it was something in the sky but they would not listen and called my mother to come get me, I could not stay the rest of the summer. I complained about being sick and having severe cramps but they said I was facking it so as to get to stay. When my mother got there to get me she was real mad at my grandmother for defendind me and mad because I was sun burn and blistered and my head was bleeding from a small hole or puncture. She claimed I must have gotten hit with a nail or something. I was 8, 9, or 10 years old because it was the summer my grandmothers brother died. It was on 8th street across from the golf course. I went back to see if I would remember the house in the late sixties early seventies and the house had not been changed. I did not ask to go in back or to see if the garden area to see if the ground was still dead. A short time after my expierence my uncle told me about Mr. Arnold and his UFO sighting. My uncle was a pilot and owner of a single engine piper cub. He took me flying once and I was thrilled."

This was said to be a CE3 later in the 2000's in Albert Rosales' "humanoids ecnounters" catalogues.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

33.

Location. Modesto, California

Date: August 8 1947

Time: 2200

His grandmother awakened the 9-year old witness when they saw a bright bluish light from behind their cottage. He ran out back and saw a large disc-shaped object hovering overhead ringed with multi-colored lights. His next memory was of was of waking up again and trying to explain how did the vegetable garden in the back of the house suddenly dried out; the whole garden was ashen and dry. His skin was also sunburned and he had a small puncture wound on his head from where blood was oozing out. (Possibly an unexplored abduction event).

HC addendum

Source: NUFORC

Type: G?

High Strangeness Index: 7

Reliability of Source: 7

Comments: Like I mentioned on the summary this is possibly an early-unexplored abduction event. I have no idea if the witness has gone through hypnotic regression.

Points to consider:

The quetsion of the credibility of the story is obvious, as this is only a web report.

But also, one wonders how this becomes a "close encounter of the third kind", when no occupant or entity is seen. There is no reason to think this was an "abduction" in my opinion.

List of issues:
