UFO Case Report (E-mail):
“Subject: Groveton MO, February 9, 1968”

By Joan Woodward, 26 November 2005

Quote from the UFO case report:
Animal Reaction Feature:
In the early morning darkness, the witness heard cows in a pasture in front of his house bawling as if frightened. He looked out a window and saw a large circular object hovering 20 to 25 feet above the ground and 300 to 350 feet from the house.  The glow associated with the object was bright enough that the witness could see furniture in the house, could see limbs on trees, and the fence between the pasture and house. The glow also allowed him to see the cattle that were in a rough semicircle about 100 to 200 feet from the object. Some cows with calves were bawling and being answered by calves. Then one cow whirled and ran toward the barn, followed within seconds by all the others. Throughout the sighting there was a distinct swishing sound (like a piece of wire whirled at high speed) with a pulsating rhythm.

The Sighting:
This sighting is included on the list of Blue Book ‘Unknowns (#12235).’  The time of the sighting was reported as 4:30 am by Skylook (1970) and as 3:20 am by Hynek (1977). The witness resides on a farm. He is nearsighted (but can drive without glasses) and viewed these events without glasses. Hynek felt he was a stable, factual witness. His house sits ¼ mile from a road and the pasture is between the house and the road.

After being alerted as described above and seeing the cattle run toward the barn, the witness focused on the object. He saw a circular object estimated as 100 feet in diameter with at least one concave side from which came yellow-green light. The witness saw 7 openings in the center of the concave side. Without glasses he was not sure if the openings were round or square, but estimated them to be 2 to 2.5 feet in diameter.

The duration of the sighting was estimated with uncertainty, but was probably greater than 1 minute and less than 5 minutes. The object departed by rapidly rising at a 45 degree angle but maintained the horizontal position the craft held during hovering.  On departure, the swishing sound became 2-3 times louder and the pulsations became more rapid.
