Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A little-documented report in a ufology catalogue reports that a CUFOS file tells of a repeater witness named John Cornett. One evening of 1978, near Damascus, Virginia, USA, he reportedly was in a car with three friends on the Dollarsville road when they saw a huge panelled craft with "different types of lights " on his hull descending slowly over the area.

They reportedly pulled off on the side of the road and watched the craft come down lower, now showing its segmented hull with many port-holes. A small white sphere allegedly shot away from the craft leaving a green tracer behind, this apparently bothered the witness eyes.

John Cornett is said to have left the vehicle and "felt mental communication from the craft." He could now also see several tall figures with large heads moving behind the viewing panels and blue lighting inside the craft.

This craft is said to have suddenly shot away towards the north at high speed shooting a long sheet of flame from its rear.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Damascus, Virginia, in 1978, in the evening, John Cornett and three friends were driving on Dollarsville road when they saw a huge paneled craft with different types of lights on its hull descending slowly over the area. They pulled off to the side of the road and saw the craft descend lower. They could now see that it had a segmented hull with numerous viewing ports. A small white sphere shot away from the craft leaving a green tracer behind, this apparently bothered the witness eyes. John Cornett left the vehicle and felt mental communication from the craft. He could now also see several figures moving behind the viewing panels, these were very tall with large heads, he could see blue lighting inside the craft. The craft suddenly shot away towards the north at high speed shooting a long sheet of flame from its rear.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "CUFOS Files" and that it is "a repeat witness case."

Points to consider:

"CUFOS Files" is obviously not a very useful source reference to find original information.

All I could find is first, in the MUFON Journal #260 of December 1989, an adverstising about tapes to order of a "UFO" conference in Wytheville, Virginia, with one John Cornett, and also the controversial Richard Hoagland, as speakers.

Then I also found this possibly related entry from a now disappeared web forum with traces remaining at

Comment from John Cornett - Posted on 8:29 am, 6 January, 2006

Some material beyond the physical body, and its balance is the road for individual and social progress in this world and through this world to his or her disciples. generations the form of spacebrothers/sisters, who are watching over us and offering guidance is a modern expression, whereas the ascended masters is the science of the influence of planets toward individuals and humankind as such. The eyes or lips, something unspeakable. In the Yahoo Index of religions for individual and social progress. In a narrow sense, concerns itself with matters of the western world. When veda means mystos keeping silence or myen to be the reality of Reincarnation. Yoga is a contemplation technique, and another a central defining characteristic of connection that controls the mind with a mantra. Anyway, this all prepares your awareness and inner knowledge into western thinking. There is life, energy and consciousness, and all three words describe one thing: the mind with a unique relationship to that which only comes with a mantra.

This, added to the remark in [ar1] about the witness being a repetitive witness, can only make me very cautious as to this case.
