Description (In Witness's Own Words):
Me and my friend saw what we thought was a full moon with a thick dense ring of smoke around the moon, as we watched the ring was pulsing and getting bigger it was like something was in it. We thought it was getting bigger then realized it was coming down. We were engulfed in this fog that seemed to be alive. Then I snapped out of this daze staring back at the moon. This all lasted about 5 to 10 minutes I thought. My friend told me the time and I was blown away! 2 and a half hours were gone.
Second Witness Report (In Response to My Questions):
Hi, thanks for replying it was the 2nd week of October, 2004. The sky was clear with a 5 to 10mph breeze. Yes, my best friend also witnessed it. I reported it to 3 or 4 different sites on the Internet but got no response. You are the first to respond.
It happened in town and the weird thing is my friend said when he walked outside his fence to the garage the whole thing disappeared, but when he came back inside the fence it was there again.
His girl friend was awakened by hearing us screaming and yelling, which I don't remember us doing. Then she said she just went back to sleep. Normally she would have been right up.
After I snapped out of this daze I went right inside. My buddy said he fell down disoriented. I felt motion sickness and had a headache for about 3 weeks.
We talked about getting hypnotized but were chicken I guess. I hope this helps. Please let me know if any thing like this has ever been sighted. Thank you, it means a lot.
Investigator's Notes: The witness has been very responsive to my inquiries. He asked me about hypnosis. Given that fact I am doubtful that this case is a hoax. It certainly is a strange case and involves missing time as well as temporary physical effects. I have no explanation for what the witnesses encountered.
One time I was camping with friends near Fairmount Hot Springs in Canada. Two of the campers and myself saw what looked like a smokey hula hoop flying over. You could see through the middle of the ring. So I understand what this witness is saying.
Another time when I worked at the Boeing Airplane Company one of my fellow workers wanted to fool me because they knew I was interested in UFOs. He found this picture in a document and gave it to me saying it was a ring caused by a UFO. Actually what it was had been created by a rocket being tested and blasted into space. In this case, it left a smoke ring. Did my friend ever laugh when he knew he had tried to fool me. Fortunately the other engineers told me what he had done!
