Aug. 19, 1965; Cherry Creek, New York (BBU 9806)
8:20-9 p.m. (EDT). Mrs. William Butcher, son Harold, 17, and children [3 students?], heard radio interference and beeping sound in a barn, went outside to see 50 ft wide saucer like two plates lip-to-lip [elliptical?], 20 ft thick, shiny silver or chrome color with red glowing streamers [reddish vapor underneath?] and leaving a red-yellow trail, which landed nearby then rapidly ascended into the clouds turning the clouds bright green a few seconds later; burned gasoline odor; farm animals reacted and later reduced milk production. Object returned twice at 8:45 and 9 p.m. finally disappearing to SSW [or SW?]. Radio drowned out by static, a tractor engine stopped. Next day, a purplish liquid, 2 ft x 2 ft marks and patches of singed grass were found at the site by USAF Capt. James Dorsey and 4 technicians from Niagara Falls AFB. (UFOE II, Section I; Berliner; cf. Hynek UFO Rpt pp. 170-2; Vallée Magonia 675, 684)

The witnesses were: Harold Alfred Butcher (15), Cathleen Gay Brougham (16),
William L. Butcher Jr. (17), and Robert Allen Butcher (14).
