E-M Effects on Car and Radio
Jan 15, 1965
Bt. Wilmot & Enfield, New Hampshire

Jan. 15, 1965: Between Wilmot and Enfield, N.H. (BB)
10 p.m. A former Manchester newsman, Mr. Charles Knee, Jr., was driving on Route 4-A when the radio suddenly stopped, the lights on the car went out and the engine quit. He lost control of the car and pulled to the side of the road and then heard a loud humming sound like a high frequency electrical whine. He then opened the car door and stepped out. He looked up and saw a very bright light below the cloud cover at around 2,000 to 5,000 feet altitude which looked about the size of a flashlight held at arm's length pointed toward his face. It seemed to hover for a moment and then it took off to the south traveling very fast. As the light left and the whine died away the car's lights and radio came on and the motor started. The whole thing lasted about 15 or 20 seconds.

Note: This event is not listed in the Project Blue Book Master Index, but the documents do come from PBB files.
