AUGUST 3, 1965, DOEHLERS BEACH, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, DOUG KONOPKA AND TIM DIETZ:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems that a NICAP ufologist, Louis Spizarny, reported that at the beach of Doehler or Doehlers, in North-East Pennsylvania, on August 3, 1965, at 10:30 a.m., two boys, Doug Konopka, 9, and Tim Dietz, 8, on holiday with their families, went along a road in a wooden area when they saw a disc shaped of "dirty white" color, 15 feet in diameter, with a transparent dome, 50 feet away.

Close to it was a small figure with yellow eyes, approximately 4.5 feet tall, and inside the dome, there another moving figure was visible.

Scared, the boys fled; then they heard a "swishing" noise and saw a round object rising above the top of the trees and fly out of sight above the lake.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in North East Pennsylvania, on August 3, 1965, at 1030 a.m., two boys, Doug Knopka, 9, and Tim Dietz 8, vacationing at Doehler's Beach with their families, were walking along a wooded road when they saw a "dirty white" disc shaped object 15 ft in diameter, with a transparent dome, 50 ft away. Beside it was a small figure with yellow eyes about 4.5 ft tall, and inside the dome another moving figure was visible. Frightened, the boys ran from the spot; then they heard a "swishing" sound and saw a round object rise over the treetops and disappear from sight out over the lake.

Albert Rosales indicates as source "Louis Spizarny for Nicap."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on August 3, 1965, at 10:30, in Doehlers Beach, Pennsylvania, USA, there was a close encounter with a an unidentified craft and its occupants, by two witnesses called Dietz and Konopka on a road briefly.

The sources are indicated as Webb, David, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports; Bloecher, Ted R., Ted R Bloecher investigation files.

Points to consider:

It would have been nice to have more information on this sighting of apparently high strangeness. The witnesses, however, are quite young, and no comment is offered as of the credibility that should or shouldn't be granted to the report.
