AUTUMN 1966, CHESTERFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, MR. SANBORN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

US ufologists David F. Webb and E. F. Mallove Albert Rosales indicated that near Chesterfield, Massachusetts, on Fall 1966, at 10:15 p.m., driving after dark, Mr. Sanborn heard a sewing-machine-like sound and then saw a dark basin-shaped object, 80 feet wide, tilted at a 45 degree angle, which crossed the road.

He then turned so that he could see in the tilted basin a horizontal gold-lit dome, at the center of which was "a large man," at least 9 feet tall. After re-crossing the road the UFO came to a stop hovering 5 feet from the ground, and another occupant walked from the center to the edge of the dome. Both occupants wore long black overcoats and broad rimmed hats.

Sanborn drove past it; he had it in view for 5 or 6 minutes in all. Afterwards, this 78-year old witness experienced a wasting illness, losing more than 50 pounds and requiring treatment.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Chesterfield, Massachusetts, on Fall 1966, at 10:15 p.m., driving after dark, Mr. Sanborn heard a sewing machine like sound and then saw a dark basin-shaped object, 80 feet wide, tilted at a 45 degree angle, which crossed the road.

It then turned so that he could see in the tilted basin a horizontal gold-lit dome, at the center of which was "a large man," at least 9 feet tall. After re-crossing the road the UFO came to a stop hovering 5 ft from the ground, and another occupant walked from the center to the edge of the dome. Both occupants wore long black overcoats and broad rimmed hats.

Sanborn drove past it; he had it in view for 5 or 6 minutes in all. Afterwards the 78-year old witness experienced a wasting illness, losing more than 50 lb and requiring B12 treatment.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is David Webb and E. F. Mallove for Mufon.

Points to consider:

It is regertable that this case which presents a high strangeness at least at first sight does not benefit of a more detailed an accessible documentation.
