Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that between Orlando and Jacksonville, Florida, on January 1978, at night, five witnesses were driving on a deserted stretch of road when a red luminous object descended behind some trees near them. They reached their destination 2 hours late. Later dreams revealed that they had been abducted by small gray skin humanoids and possibly examined. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Thomas E Bullard, UFO Abductions The Measure of A Mystery."

Points to consider:

Information is blatantly insufficient. Nothing is said about the witnesses, nothing in said about the way in which the story surfaced, there is no indication there that there were the least checking or investigation.

There is apparently no conscious observation of UFO occupants, but only of the dreams, at an unspecified delay after the sighting. Whether bout the UFO sighting or these dreams, the two or three sentences the report is made of is totally insufficient.

There is no strangeness in dreaming of "small greys".
