Witness is lured out of house, silent craft glides overhead, more body marks are discovered.

This is the third incident in a cluster of personal reports in January 1989, the details of which were written down just after the sightings. Two days and 15 minutes after seeing a silent craft fly over my house, I was at home sitting on the sofa in front of my pot-bellied wood-burning stove, which had a cozy fire burning inside. I fed a piece of paper to the woodstove, which was immediately sucked up the stovepipe instead of burning. Going outside to see if I could see the paper come out the chimney, I noticed a prominent off-white object with an orange tint aproaching from the southeast. I went back inside to get my binoculars, and when I returned outside, the craft was gliding in complete silence over the house at about 1200 feet altitude and estimated speed of 85 mph. It had a whitish or orange-white dome-light on top and red and green running lights below and to the sides, giving the craft a saucer-like appearance and also in compliance with standard aircraft lighting configurations. The green nav-light was on its right and the red nav-light was on its left, the same as for airplanes. The next morning, after taking a shower, I discovered more bleeding marks on my body. There was one more mark on my right ear, three marks (scoops and tiny holes) on my left ear, and a large (1/8" x 1/4") scoop wound on my back. I was 27 years old at the time, trained in basic astronomy in college, and familiar with aircraft as a private pilot with nearly six years experience. There was no missing time involved, and no strange memories have ever emerged.
