BLUE ALIEN SIGHTED IN PENNSYLVANIA CORNFIELD On Tuesday, September 24, 1996, two children--a girl and a boy, age 9--spotted a weird-looking entity in a cornfield "about a hundred yards" from their school in the mountains of western Pennsylvania. According to Mrs. Beverly C., the girl's grandmother, the kids saw the creature at 1 p.m. The alien was moving through a clearing in the cornfield near their elementary school, located north of Georgeville, Marchand and Smithport in Indiana County, 75 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The creature "was striding across the clearing, moving its arms back and forth like a soldier marching would," Mrs. C. said. Her granddaughter described the creature as "four feet tall, and his arms were long on his body" and had "three fingers but not unusually long." A most unusual feature was a tube-like appendage lying on top of its head and dangling down in the rear. Its skin color was "the blue of a clear sky" and "a black thing that appeared to be an eye but low where a nose should be." Mrs. C. said her granddaughter and the boy had the creature in view for about nine minutes but did not hear any unusual sounds associated with the entity.

In a followup communication, she reported that two other children at the same school had just reported seeing a similar sky-blue creature "in the same spot sometime in the spring."
