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).

New York Paper Article

The article mentions several UFO sightings including that of
John King, a 22-year-old, Bangor, Maine, man said he shot four
times at a 60-foot-long glowing object and hit it. It then zoomed
skyward, he said. "I could hear the elderberry bushes scraping
as the thing came towards me," he said.
