Case 111725: In 1971, Roger [last name withheld] and a friend were in a remote field in a wooded area near Duluth, Minnesota. They both saw a bright, white object descend from the sky and hover or land in the forest. They took refuge in a “shack” nearby.
In 1972, Roger, his brother and two young friends were sleeping over in the same shack. At 11 PM, the four boys were in the upper floor and in sleeping bags apparently fast asleep. Suddenly, the upper floor was filled with a bright white light coming through the window. There were no sounds coming from outdoors. The only access to the upper floor was via a trap door, and Roger’s brother was sleeping directly over the trap door.
Without any warning, there were noises coming from the main floor below that sounded as though the furniture was being thrown about. There were crashing noises. Then, something began to push the trap door open alarming Roger’s brother and the three other boys. His brother’s sheer weight forced the trap door shut. Then, something again pushed up against the door and then all four of the boys jumped onto the door to keep it closed. The noises ceased and the bright light went out. From sheer terror, the boys were awake the entire night. Once there was sunlight outside, the boys went down to inspect the damage, but, oddly, there was none.
The only evidence of the event was a 10-foot wide circle a short distance from the shack and in the same, exact place where the bright disc had landed in 1971! Nothing grows there now.
