SUMMER 1954, ANZA BORREGO DESERT, CALIFORNIA, USA, A 13-YEAR-OLD:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Albert Rosales noted from Gray Barker's UFO Annual of 1982 a case of the summer of 1954, at night, in the Anza Borrego Desert, California, USA:

A 13-year-old witness was camping with his family and a friend when the howling of the coyotes woke him up. He then began receiving telepathic messages in his head.

He rose from his bed and began waving a Coleman lantern. Moments later a bright white disc approached the campsite, as it neared, it turned to a metallic gray craft that hovered silently above the campsite. It had a complex structure including a rod that stuck out at the front.

Three human shaped figures looked down at the witnesses through a large porthole. The object then emitted a high-pitched whine as a panel on its bottom slid open. A tremendously bright spotlight then flooded the campsite. The witnesses felt paralyzed and it a state of confusion. Moments later the object shot away in a burst of light.
