Characteristics: Aura or haze around object, Landed

Greenish fireball flying nearly horizontal and Greyish figure 1-2 Mo. later

Two young boys: summer 1946, 4th graders, observed a green fireball go from S. to north over the top of an E.to W. low Mt. (Index is completely enclosed by Mt.s).

This object flew into the side of the North-of-town, Higher mt., that runs E. to W.,

This "landing" was not accompanied by a flash, explosion, etc.

We were walking on a street running S. to N. close to my house. We saw the object as it came into view very close to the top of the S. Mt. We could observe the top of the N. Mt. and observe it far below the top of the East Mt. (Mt. Baring/Gunns peaks lying S.E. to N.E. resp.))

The object hit/landed, about 3/4 mile E. of Lookout Point, looks like an inverted V (carat?) above, and directly N. of the street that runs S. to N., from the car bridge North to where that street butts up to N. Mt.

Pictures or drawings available on request.

In addition to the object at the end of the summer, I awoke to see a grayish figure in my bedroom at the doorway as tall as the door (6' 10"), I yelled for my father. and pulled the blankets over my head. (This occured about 1-2 months after the two of us observed the greenish fireball


P. S. this happened before we had ever heard of "ufo's" or "flying saucers".
