Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A catalogue reports that in New York City, New York, the USA, in the summer of 1955, at 03:00 a.m., a 15-year-old girl had difficulties to fall asleep when she heard noises of footstep suddenly approaching her room.

Somebody resembling to a tall man came in her bedroom, stood close to the bed, launching shafts of light by the eyes which "almost had a hypnotic effect on the witness."

The man asked the girl to follow him, they both went by the living room where a gray mist extended from the floor to the ceiling. The girl took the man by the hand and they entered the mist, to find themselves suddenly inside a metal room which resembled an elevator.

They passed by a corridor, then entered a room filled with brilliant pink light, where were "many instruments and multicolored lights" and 8 to 9 tall people with black hair sat at "control panels."

She saw an image of the Earth on a screen, was taken along in another room where she ate a meal composed only of fruits, was brought back to the "elevator" which she felt descended, the gray mist of the living room was crossed again and she was back in the apartment.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in New York City, New York, on Summer, 1955, at 0300 a.m., the 15-year old witness was having difficulty in falling asleep when suddenly she heard heavy footsteps approaching her room, somebody entered the room and then she saw a very tall human like figure standing by her bed, piercing shafts of light came from its eyes that almost had a hypnotic effect on the witness. He asked the witness to follow him, they both entered the dining room where a gray mist extended from the floor to the ceiling, the witness grabbed the man's hand and entered the mist. Inside they were suddenly in a metallic room that felt like an elevator, they both then entered a corridor, then a room filled with bright pink light, there were numerous instruments and multi colored lights about. There were eight to nine more persons seated at various control panels, they were all very tall and had black hair. She saw a screen where an image of the earth could be seen. Then she was led to another room where she ate a meal consisting of fruits only. She was eventually taken back to the metallic "elevator" where she felt a downward motion; she walked through the gray mist again and was back in her apartment.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Barbara Hudson, Unsolved UFO Sightings, #1.

Points to consider:

This is a very poorly reported case in the form just a story of alleged events. It is not said who reported, neither when, nor to whom, to at what age, and the general impression is that this is a summary of some affair in which a person made hypnagogic dreams during her sleep in her youth and probably along time afterwards went to get help from "hypnotists ufologists" who, using this technique, as it often happen, "uncovered" all kinds of memories, real memories, but in no way established memories real events - as opposed to memories of ufology readings, science fiction movies and the like.
