[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Hamburg, Germany, on August 24, 1978, in the afternoon, six children from a local school saw a round silvery object slowly descend and land on an open field. The object had two round black dots on its side. A ladder descended and two human like figures emerged, they wore white helmets and dark uniforms. The witnesses ran to get some help, but upon returning both the object and figures were gone.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Ulrich Magin."

Points to consider:

We are not told a lot. For example, no observation distance, no age for the witnesses (children), no indication whether the craft was silent or noisy.

Well, at least, reading the description, I wondered whether this could just have been an helicopter landing...
