Rating: 5  

A Hynek Classification of Close Encounter is usually an incident involving an object less than 500 feet from the witness.  The size of the object,  viewing conditions, or stereoscopic vision (depth perception)  may render the object in greater detail and still qualify the sighting as a Close Encounter even though the object may have been beyond 500'.  The incident depicted in the logo was encountered during an intense storm near Princeton, IN,  Aug. 1973.

Object On Witness' Roof
Nov. 1, 1957
Huntington, West Virginia

Nov. 1, 1957; Huntington, West Virginia (BB)
5:30 p.m. local. A woman heard a "crash" followed by a beeping sound outside of her house. She then went outside and observed a metallic-looking object on the roof that appeared as two hemispheres joined off center. The object was about the size of an automobile. The bottom half of the object seemed to vibrate or revolve. After a few seconds the object started to ascend straight up and was out of sight in about one minute. (BB files)
