Animal Reaction Feature:
The witness was watching a bright red silent object.  She noticed that a neighbor’s dog “sitting very quietly...looking up into the sky.  We were both very still and the object came lower.”    Then a beam of light shot down from the object engulfing the dog. The witness was at the edge of the beam, which came and went in “a flash.”

Joan Woodward, Animal Reaction Specialist:
Mary Ellen Roberts was returning home at 8:30 p.m., when she noticed a silent flashing red light.  Thinking it a helicopter, she listened for sound but heard none.  The red light was intensely bright and she could not make out a shape.

As described above, she noticed the dog and then the beam of light flashed out and was gone. The object began to flash green, and then turned whitish-yellow.  She continued watching the object as it moved on.  It hovered, banked swiftly or drifted along slowly. The light changed from flashing red, to solid red to green to yellowish but in no particular order.  Duration of the sighting was about 30 minutes.

No sound, EM effects, or physiological effects were reported.
