JULY 17, 1955, MEOPHAM, KENT, U-K., A MAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A story from the Flying Saucer Review in 1981 apparently told that in Meopham, Kent, England, on July 17, 1955, at dusk, a man had taken his dog out for a walk through some fields when he suddenly began to feel uneasy, "as if being watched", while the hairs of his dog were standing straight up.

He looked up, and saw a very large hovering cigar-shaped object with large rounded windows, almost directly overhead. The windows were brightly lit and he was able to see several humanoid figures that were apparently looking down at him.

The object followed the witness silently as he ran with his dog across the fields to his house where he hid, and last saw the object hovering over some nearby buildings.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Meopham, Kent, England, on July 17, 1955, at dusk, a man had taken his dog out for a walk through some fields when he suddenly began to feel uneasy, "as if being watched." The hairs of his dog were standing straight up. He looked up and saw a very large hovering cigar shaped object with large rounded windows, almost directly overhead. The windows were brightly lit and he was able to see several humanoid figures that were apparently looking down at him. The object followed the witness silently as he ran with his dog across the fields and to his house. The witness hid inside his home and last saw the object hovering over some nearby buildings.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Mrs. M. Fry Contact, In FSR Vol. 27, #5.

Points to consider:

It seems that no other source than the Flying Saucer Review mentions the case, probably simply a reader's letter, late, to this magazine, probably never investigated.
