Encounters with UFO Occupants, 1976
Coral and Jim Lorenzen, Berkley Publishing, New York, pages 14-15, in Chapter II, Landing Traces:
Arriving at her mother’s home at Islamorada, Barbara told her mother of her experience, rested for a couple of hours and convinced that it had been an illusion, decided to return to Pompano in order to elude early morning rush hour traffic. She and her sister and a toy poodle began the journey back on U.S. Highway 1 and reached the Jewish Creek area at 2:30 A.M. on July 21st. The only other car on the road had turned off at Ocean Reef, and the girls were alone when the dog suddenly began to shake violently, not making a sound. Then the girls saw the yellow light again as it rose out of the swamp west of the highway. This time it did not look perfectly round as before but somewhat jagged. “It wobbled and floated up, down, and from side to side,” Miss Fawcett reported. [Jewish Creek is misspelled and should be Jewfish Creek—jw]
When the object appeared in front of the car about 15 feet off the ground, Barbara thought she was going to collide with it. But as the car nearly reached the object, it veered to the right under the power lines and landed on one of the large sand dunes to the right of the road. At this juncture the light became smaller and smaller until it reached the size of a pinpoint and finally disappeared. Less than a minute later the large light again appeared in the rear-view mirror of the car, and Barbara kept going as fast as her car would go and reached Pompano Beach. She later reported the incident to officers at Substation Four in Homestead, the Air Force and Homestead police. Investigation showed an immense scorched area on top of a particular sand dune near the edge of the road where Miss Fawcett estimated the object had landed.
