March 23/24, 1966; Bangor, ME
11:50 PM EST. A yellowish elliptical object with a textured
surface (compare to March 20, Dexter, Michigan) and blue and
white body lights was encountered hovering just off the
ground near the road. The object had rotating lights resembling
windows, and emitted a soft electrical humming sound. When the object
moved toward him, the motorist's car lights dimmed and his radio
stopped playing (EM effects). The frightened witness took a
pistol from his car, and when he fired it, the
object glowed brightly and took off at high speed, making a "zinging"
sound like the recoil of a spring. (NICAP report; U.F.O. Investigator,
Vol. Ill, No. 7, Mar.-Apr. 1966, p. 3; New York News, Mar. 25, 1966).
