Disc Lands Between Two Boys
Aug. 11, 1948
Nr. Hamel, Minnesota

Brad Sparks:
Aug. 11, 1948; Near Hamel, Minn. (BBU)
Bet. 12 and 12:15 p.m. (CDT). Two Leuer boys playing outside saw a round, dull gray or silver object 2 ft diameter, 1 ft thick, like inverted plates approach from the NW drop down between the boys from a height of 12 ft and land 8 ft away from one of the boys like a balloon with a metallic clinking sound and a train whistle noise. It spun once, shot up 20 ft, made the whistle noise again, hovered, shot up to a height of 30 ft maneuvering to avoid phone lines and trees, flew away to the NE. CIC Special Agent Capt. Charles L. Victor, 113th CIC Det., found an area 2 ft in diameter where the ground showed signs of extreme pressure. (Vallée Magonia 66; FOIA; FUFOR Index)
