Roger Marsh at the UFO Examiner has linked a strange story today, involving the appearance of two odd-looking “creatures” spotted by children at a family gathering that occurred in Ward County, Texas. This UFO encounter follows suit with many “classics” in the field of Ufology, detailing how a metallic craft landed in the vicinity, appearing to be made of “highly polished material” with “a small dull glow.” This was followed by the appearance of two 4 foot tall “creatures” that were skinny with large heads. The beings frightened the children, who alerted adults to the presence of the craft (Image, left, by G. Alden Davis, initially appeared as a “Photo of the Day” at the Coast to Coast AM website).

“Three children originally saw the object, according to the statement, and alerted the adults at a family gathering inside,” Marsh reports. “They first smelled ‘burning mesquite,’ and ‘a sort of electrical charge to the very air around us’.”

Marsh continues, “The report includes details about how the ‘creatures’ did not notice them until one of the children screamed, which appeared to alert the two beings near the craft. The two then disappeared behind the craft, and the craft ‘rose quietly and hovered about 40 feet from the ground, and shot out like a bat out of hell. As it zoomed away, it started glowing and made it easier to track as it zoomed away getting higher and higher till it faded away.’

This strange encounter first caught my eye due to the fact that it is yet another very detailed report stemming from Texas. In the months since the 2007 wave of reports coming from Stephensville, Texas UFO activity has continued to be an item of interest. The story was initially reported to the MUFON organization; Marsh’s complete commentary, in addition to the unedited report submitted to the MUFON group after the encounter, can be viewed by clicking here.
