SUMMER 1959, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Author Brad Steiger reportedly told in a 1978 book that in Pennsylvania, USA, at an unspecified location, late in the evening in a summer of 1959, someone was sitting in his lounge chair, reading, dozing, but "at the same time tense and restless," "something seemed to be at the back of his mind."

Suddenly he looked toward the door. Somehow "he knew someone was at the other side". He lay his book down, got up and went to the door, opened it a crack and looked out.

There were two men dressed in black, looking identical like twins. They were dark complexioned with Oriental eyes, but definitely not Orientals. They never said a word, but the witness heard in his mind, "Are you ready?" He does not know why, but for some reason he was ready to go.

Since it was so terribly hot that night, he had stripped down to his "birthday suit" and when he reached for a pair of walking shorts again he heard in his mind, "That will not be necessary. No one will see you." They stepped out in the hall and instantly, they were on top of a flat hill in back of the apartments. The witness was rather surprised that the scene had changed so quickly.

He noticed the headlights of a car coming down the street, and he ducked behind the two men. He then heard some laughter in his mind, and "We told you no one would see you. Try it." He then boldly stepped around in front of them, spread his feet apart, propped his hands on his hips, daring anyone to see me, but the car, with a man and a woman in it, passed a few feet from them not even looking in their direction.

He turned to say something to his companions and they were looking up. He followed their gaze and realized that something was hanging there suspended above them. As he did so, an opening appeared in its center and blue-white light came tumbling out of it. He felt a queasy sensation in the pit of his stomach, like when in an elevator or an airplane dropping too fast. He could see apartment houses and the ground receding below them. They were floating up toward whatever the object was.

He blacked out as they approached the opening. When he came to his senses, he was lying on his side facing a wall. He rolled over on his back and sat up. He was in an oddly shaped room. It somehow resembled a wedge of pie with the point of bitten off. The whole room was bare except for some kind of projection on which he was sitting. Everything seemed to be made out of a blue gray material. While the walls were very hard, the surface on he was sitting was very soft even though everything seemed to have been made of the same material. The room was bathed in a soft glow and there were no shadows anywhere, but there was no light source that he could see.

He then heard a female voice say, "He's awake now." He looked around to see if he could spot the speaker but saw nothing, just the walls. About this time on the short wall a door appeared and opened. He could see into a hallway. Although the hall was dark, here was blue-white illumination that appeared as though it was coming from some great distance.

Two shadows flittered across the doorway. He couldn't tell anything about their shapes. The movement was too rapid and too distorted. But he received a mental impression of two people approaching, a man in the front and a woman in the back, carrying a tray full of some kind of surgical instruments and hypodermic syringes.

His next memory was of being back in his apartment, in his chair, reading his book. It is said that a book that he had been reading went mysteriously missing for a week after the encounter and was later found right on the same spot where the witness had left it.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Pennsylvania, exact location not given, on Summer 1959, late in the evening, the witness was sitting in his lounge chair, reading, dozing but was at the same time tense and restless. Something seemed to be at the back of his mind. Suddenly he looked toward the door. Somehow he knew someone was at the other side. He lay his book down got up and went to the door, opened it a crack and looked out. There were two men dressed in black there. They looked like identical twins. They were dark complexioned with Oriental eyes, but they were definitely not Orientals. They never said a word but the witness heard in his mind, "Are you ready?" He does not know why but for some reason he was ready to go.

But he received a mental impression of two people approaching---a man in the front and a woman in the back---carrying a tray full of some kind of surgical instruments and hypodermic syringes. His next memory was of being back in his apartment, in his chair, reading his book. An interesting detail was that a book that he had been reading went mysteriously missing for a week after the encounter and was later found right on the same spot where the witness had left it.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Brad Steiger, "Alien Meetings".

Points to consider:

The case comes from a book by an author considered of low credibility, and has absolutely no other corroboration.

Brad Steiger, (www.bradandsherry.com), true name Brad Olson, is the author of more than 160 books on all kinds of topics, from a biography of Rudolf Valentino to the paranormal, the Bermuda triangle, Atlantis, the gods, the "powers" of the prayer, werewolves, monsters, the "mysteries of the animal intelligence", the wisdom of the Indians, the miracles, the hosts, clairvoyance, spoon bending, "ancient astronauts, UFOs. According to one or the other of his books, he proposes that UFOs are probes created in our mind via "psychic powers" of "foreign" beings coming from a "another dimension" who study us or perhaps even us created and handled us since our origins, or that UFOs come from secret bases maintained by the inhabitants of Atlantis. His wife thinks she is the incarnation in another dimension of a Venusian named Kihief.
