MARCH 1978, SAINT CLAIR SHORES, MICHIGAN, USA, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

An anonymous person reported to the National UFO Reportin Center (NUFORC) website in January 9, 2002, that at the approximate date on March 1, 1978, at 07:30 p.m....

"Traveling one evening with 2 small children in the back seat, I noticed a streak of light in the sky which was approaching very fast below the horizon line. The area became intersection became very dark, and traffic and street light went out. I pulled over into an empty parking lot near a building, wondering what it was and get a better look. A doomed shaped object came in at impossible speeds (no sound at all) and hovered directly in front of where I was and hovered motionless above the building. The center rotated and was lit from the inside. I felt that I was being watched. To my suprise there were tall figures dressed in what appeared to be blue jumpsuits. All were very alike with shoulder length yellow hair. I could see into the craft and it appeared that they were aware that I was there and looked out of clear widows that made up the middle portion of the craft (which rotated. The underside of the craft was lit with bright white lights. Then it shot up at lighting speed, again without any sound and streaked off as it accelerated to nothing more than a pin point of light and disapeared. I went down the nearest street, but it had vanished and was gone. I considered going to the police to report it and actually started to do this, but decided no one at all would believe me. This was a friday pm est, and on the next Tuesday on the car radio there was a news report that over norther Michigan there had been sightings ufo's and the description match exactly what I had seen just a few evenings before. I am a professional person with advanced degrees, and have only talked about this with family."

Oval object, center portion having windows, internally lit with tall figures glaring out, seen in MI, spring eveng1978.

Traveling one evening with 2 small children in the back seat, I noticed a streak of light in the sky which was approaching very fast below the horizon line. The area became intersection became very dark, and traffic and street light went out. I pulled over into an empty parking lot near a building, wondering what it was and get a better look. A doomed shaped object came in at impossible speeds (no sound at all) and hovered directly in front of where I was and hovered motionless above the building. The center rotated and was lit from the inside. I felt that I was being watched. To my suprise there were tall figures dressed in what appeared to be blue jumpsuits.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, on March 1978, at 1930, the witness was traveling one evening with 2 small children in the back seat when she noticed a streak of light in the sky, which was approaching very fast below the horizon. The area around the street intersection became very dark and the traffic and streetlights went out. A dome shaped object quickly descended over the area as she pulled over to an empty parking lot. The object hovered silently and motionless over a building. The center rotated and appeared to be lit from the inside. Through a transparent area on the center the witness saw three tall man-like figures with long blond hair and wearing light blue jumpsuits that appeared to be staring at her. The witness could see inside the object and was sure that the figures knew she was looking at them. The underside of the craft was lit with bright white lights. The craft suddenly shot up and disappeared at incredible speed without emitting a sound.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "NUFORC."

Points to consider:

The statement by the witness about strong academic background contrats with the lack of care in the report's writing.

As there is no follow-up, the report remains anecdotal.
