SAW A BLUE FIREBALL CROSS THE HIWAY IN WINSLOW, ARIZONA IN 1977

IN LATE 1977 IN HEBER, AZ, MEN WERE CUTTING WOOD, ONE PERSON WAS ABDUCTED, DISSAPPEARED FOR A WEEK' WAS IN THE NATIONAL HEADLINES.

I WAS TRAVELING BACK FROM LAS VEGAS WITH TWO FRIENDS AROUND MIDNITE 12 MILES FROM WINSLOW HEADING EAST. TRUCK DRIVER AHEAD WAS STOPPED IN THE HIWAY AND THERE WAS A BLUEISH GLOW EVERYWHERE IN THE DESERT. AT THAT TIME I STOPPED AND A HUGE BLUE FIRE BALL WAS DESCENDING AT 30 DEG. ACROSS THE HIWAY.ABOUT 1 MILE AHEAD OF MY CAR.

BALL WAS 3 INCHES ACROSS FROM MY POINT OF VIEW.SILENTLY TRAVELING DOWNWARD AT A CONTROLLED SLOW SPEED. IT WENT BEHIND A DESERT MESA AND EVERYTHING WENT BLACK. NO CRASH OR EXPLOSION.

WE TRAVELED ON TO ALBUQUERQUE WHERE WE LIVED. A WEEK LATER SAW A NEWSPAPER REPORT OF THE WOODCUTTER THAT HAD DISAPPEARED WAS DROPPED OFF THAT VERY NIGHT AND IN THE SAME LOCATION.

DID I SEE THE SHIP THAT DROPPED HIM OFF?


((NUFORC Note: I believe the witness may be referring to the Travis Walton case, which occurred near Snowflake, AZ, on November 05, 1975. We have amended the date above. PD))
