SEPTEMBER 23 AND 24, 1978, BIELA LAKE, CARPATHIA, ROMANIA, TWO PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

According to the catalogue by Albert Rosales, Boczor Iosif reported in Fate magazine, #534, in September 1994, events that occurred near Biela Lake, Carpathia, Romania:

On September 23, 1978, at midnight, two locksmiths watched a mysterious light pulsating and hovering silently above the ground. It suddenly disappeared in plain sight.

Around the same time, an army private at nearby barracks was walking around some buildings, when a two meters tall dark "man-like figure" confronted him.

The soldier ran into the barracks in order to obtain additional witnesses, but came back out again when he was unable to locate anybody. He saw the being again standing against a window.

On September 24, 1978, at night, again at the army barracks, the witness of the previous encounter was out with a friend examining an animal trap when they ran into another soldier who suddenly cried out, pointing at a "tall dark figure" on a nearby hill, standing next to an oil tank.

The three men briefly retreated to their barracks, then came back out and noticed that the figure was still there.

One of the soldiers walked towards the figure holding a club in his hand and attempted to strike the being, but somehow was unable to hit it.

Suddenly the soldier fell backwards. The being then bent down and examined him for a few moments.

The other two soldiers heard a strange sound coming form the being and saw something flash in its hand. They attempted to assist their friend but were unable to move.

When the being "finally disappeared" they were able to move and went to assist their friend, who was unconscious with "half of his body appeared softer than the other half". His face and hands were red in color.

Other soldiers saw weird dancing egg shaped lights on top of the hill. Strange marks were found on the barrack window blinds the next day.

1978 - At the army barracks near Biela Lake, Carpathia, Romania the witness of a humanoid encounter the previous night was out with a friend checking an animal trap when they ran into another soldier who suddenly cried out, pointing to a tall dark figure on a nearby hill. The being was standing next to an oil tank. The three men retreated to their barracks, then came back out, noticing that the being was still there. One of them walked towards the figure holding a club in his hand, and attempted to strike at it, but was somehow unable to hit it. That soldier suddenly fell over backwards. The being then bent down and examined him for a few moments. The other two heard a strange sound coming form the being and saw something flash in its hand. They wanted to assist their friend but were unable to move. When the being finally disappeared and they were able to move they went to check on their friend. He was unconscious and half of his body appeared softer than the other half. His face and hands were red. That night other soldiers saw weird dancing egg-shaped lights on top of the hill, and strange marks were found on the barrack window blinds the next day. (Source: Albert S.
