Four children left home to go sledding on a hill located approximately 500 yards away. At approximately 2010 hours, the children observed a disk-shaped object streak from the night sky to the overhead position above the children. (When asked by Mrs. Lammers how big it was, they held up their arms in a big "V" and stated it was within 50 feet of them.) The next thing they remembered, they were scared, they found themselves sledding in their underwear, and they ran home, the first of the four, Nicky, the only girl, age 10, arriving home first. All four children were talking about the saucer they had seen. The mother had not addressed the possibility of any kind of interaction between the craft and the children until her second telephone call, made approximately 25 minutes after completion of the first. The children reported that the craft flew to the west, then to the south, then disappeared. They estimated that they watched it for 2 minutes. Craft was oval, and gave off soft, white light. It gave off a "microwave" sound. Ages of boys was 15, 14, and 13 years; girl was 10 years.
