AUGUST 1955, FREDERICKSBURGH, VIRGINIA, USA, TOM BRICKEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems that one Tom Bricken reported probably via the web that when he was 5 years old, in Fredericksburg, Virginia, in August, 1955, at 03:00 p.m., he was playing in the kitchen of his house with his toy soldiers when he heard the back door slam.

He assumed that it was one of his family members, heard someone walk into the kitchen. Soon he felt someone staring at him and when he turned around he saw what he could only describe as a robot or a "machine-man" figure.

His next memory was of being taken from the kitchen and put in a sleep-like state. He was taken by several short aliens with large hairless heads, completely black eyes, no white in them, although by looking closer he could see a pupil; it was later communicated to him that they had a pupil because they came from a planet with two stars.

They had small ears, small mouths, and wore dark blue overall uniforms with silvery boots.

He was carried outside across the driveway to the backyard where he saw a hovering craft, with a pole of some sort going from the craft's dome and touching the power lines of the neighbor's house. He thought that they were "borrowing" electricity.

Suddenly a tripod-landing gear appeared and the craft landed. He was then taken onboard and examined, and then taken to some sort of waiting room where he met a different alien, almost human-like with round black eyes, an environmental suit with a transparent helmet, what appeared to be a breathing apparatus, an antenna-like protrusion on the right side of the helmet and some type of equipment strapped on the chest area with red straps.

In that room he saw another person, which he thought could had been his sister being examined.

He described the inside of the object as having curved walls, dimly lit with black lighting, a room that resembled a doctor's office, he also recalled seeing what appeared to have been an oscilloscope in the control room.

Soon he was brought to the control room where the commander, one of the short hairless humanoids, but wearing a light gold or peach suit, "transmitted some type of report into a console of what had transpired."

He was soon brought back into the house where he seemed to snap out of a trance-like state standing in the kitchen and staring at the wall.

The next day the neighbor found strange markings on the ground in the backyard.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Fredericksburg, Virginia, in August, 1955, at 03:00 p.m., 5-year old Tom Bricken remembers playing in the kitchen of his house with his toy soldiers when he heard the back door slam. He assumed that it was one of his family members and heard someone walk into the kitchen. Soon he felt someone staring at him and when he turned around he saw what he could only describe as a robot or a "machine-man" figure. His next memory was of being taken from the kitchen and put in a sleep-like state. Several short aliens with large hairless heads, completely black eyes, no white in them then carried him, but later upon looking at them closely he was able to see a pupil. It was later communicated to him that they had evolved in such manner because they hailed from a planet with two suns. They also had small ears; small mouths, and wore dark blue overall uniforms with silvery boots. He was carried outside across the driveway where he noticed the shadow of the neighbor's house on his house and then taken to the backyard where he saw a hovering craft. A pole of some sort came from the dome of the craft and was making contact with the power lines of the neighbor's house. He thought that they were somehow "borrowing" electricity. Suddenly a tripod-landing gear appeared and the craft landed. He noticed that the landing gear formed a perfect triangle. He was then taken onboard and examined and then taken to a sort of waiting room where he met a different alien, almost human-like with round black eyes, an environmental suit with a transparent helmet, what appeared to be a breathing apparatus, an antenna-like protrusion on the right side of the helmet and some type of equipment strapped on the chest area with red straps. In that room he saw another person, which he thought could had been his sister being examined. Soon he was brought to the control room where the commander, one of the short hairless humanoids, but wearing a light gold or peach suit transmitted some type of report into a console of what had transpired. Soon he was brought back into the house where he seemed to snap out of a trance-like state standing in the kitchen and staring at the wall. He further described the inside of the object as having curved walls, dimly lit with black lighting, a room that resembled a doctor's office, he also recalled seeing what appeared to have been an oscilloscope in the control room. The next day the neighbor found strange markings on the ground in the backyard.
