DECEMBER 1965, SHASTA LAKE, CALIFORNIA, USA, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

An email report to the NUFORC, inexistant on that UFO reporting website, allegeldy came from someone who claimed that in Shasta Lake, California, USA, on December 1965, at 01:00 p.m., several students from the local Deer Creek middle school were outside under a clear weather for meeting the principal or something similar which called for most of the students to attend.

Suddenly a silver disk shaped craft flew over the school grounds without noise north to south, very low, just above the tall pine trees, seen by more than 45 people including, teachers and students.

The object appeared to land in back of the school grounds, behind some trees, in a wooded area without houses. The students were immediately sent back to their classrooms until 02:00 p.m.

While in the classroom, the author of this report observed a man walk by the class window. He was not a sheriff, though they had been told that the sheriff had been called. The man wore a black suit, and carried a black briefcase and was walking towards the craft, to the south.

At 02:00 p.m. students were told that they could go, and the author of the report and girl then headed towards the direction of where the craft had landed, but did not see the craft. They then met other students coming back from behind the school from the landing site; some had gone to find the ship. They were told that it was gone, but they still went to the site where they found a large burned ring of approximately 40 feet in diameter. The report's author claimed that he would check this ring over the years and nothing grew there, and that his or her mother also saw that ring.

At the landing site, something scared the two students and they ran away, but the report's author could not remember what had scared them.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Shasta Lake, California, on December 1965, at 1300, several students from the local Deer Creek middle school were outside meeting the principal or something similar which called for most of the student body to attend. The weather was clear. Suddenly a silver disk shaped craft flew over the school grounds without noise. It flew north to south, very low, just above the tall pine trees. Over 45 witnesses watched, which included, teachers, students, etc. As the object went over them it appeared to land in back of the school grounds, behind some trees. The area was wooded, without houses. The students were immediately sent back to their classrooms until 02:00 p.m.. While in the classroom the main witness observed a man walk by the class window. He was not a sheriff, as they had been told that the sheriff had been called. The man wore a black suit, and carried a black briefcase. He did not see any others. He was walking towards the craft, to the south. At 02:00 p.m. The dismissal alarm sounded and the students were told that they could go. The main witness and a girl then headed towards the direction of where the craft had landed. The tall pine trees had covered its descent, but they did not see it leave. They then met other students coming back from behind the school from the landing site; some had gone to find the ship. They were told that it was gone, but they still went to the site where they found a large, approximately 40ft diameter ring. It appeared to be burned all around the edge. (Later on the main witness would return to the scene to find that for years nothing grew there). At the landing site they saw nothing else, so they left. Something then scared them and they began to run, the main witness could not recall what scared them. The main witness told his mother who went to see the ring.

Albert Rosales indicates as source NUFORC.

Points to consider:

There is no such report on the NUFORC web site for year 1965 at www.nuforc.org/webreports/ndxe196512.html. I also checked for the state of California and did not find the report either. Possibly, the report was withdrawn from the site for some reason.

Of course there was no reason to consider that man who was not a Sheriff and was allegedly seen going towards the landing site a UFO occupant at all.
