Subject: Five MADAR Events in 1989: APDs 20-24
Distribution: MADAR, CE, A-Team
MADAR Event #20
May 30, 1989. 10:39 PM one pulse, 1 sec.
MADAR Event #21
June 13, 1989; Frankfort, KY
MADAR Event #22
This one occurred on December 15, at 6:03
PM. The event occurred with a momentary power outage
so brief that there was no loss of stored info. It
was only a flicker of lights and power but the
magnet variometer deviated from north, cycled back
in 18 seconds, then deviated again in the opposite
direction. It was a 2-pulse 18second deviation with
no return on second pulse!!! The sensor
housing had to be physically rotated to get the unit
back to north. TV Channel 14 at Evansville (20 miles
east) reportedly lost all computer graphics and had
no explanation for the incident.
MADAR Event #23
About seven miles down the road they were discussing the sighting and the lady was searching the sky. On her side of the road (east) "there was this craft that was huge and it was right there! It hung in the air. It was a large craft like an aircraft carrier or barge. It was angled or tilted toward me. It had a dome on the back and a long flat area on the front with two huge searchlights. They made me nervous. It just hung there! We stopped the car and I rolled down the window. I could not hear any noise except my heart beating very fast. Daniel was trying to lean around me to see it, but he could not see the whole thing but could see the lights and felt the presence of it (a strange feeling in the joints, energy rushing through his body). That physical feeling stayed with us for quite a while afterward. So we sat and watched it, then it began to move toward me. I did not want the lights to shine on my car and I told Daniel to go. It stopped turning and, as we drove away I continued to watch it until I could not see it anymore."
The main witness described the second craft as
"very industrial looking", to heavy to be hanging in
the sky. Industrial metallic with intricate squares
on the outer sides, metal working that might have
been indentations. If this had been a boat, the
indentations would be for stairs, wasn't smooth.
Dome was smooth looking, iridescent, illuminated
from the inside. It was not a high dome. The two
lights on the front of the craft were like
MADAR Event #24
December 28, 1989; Mt. Vernon, Indiana
The object, based on its departure path, must have passed almost directly over the house at low level, going west to east, then turning southeast. The object also must have been in close proximity about the time of the interference, affecting the remote-controlled car even before that, unless this was all a coincidence. The object faded low in the distance heading southeast.
The very next day my neighbor, frustrated with his
new garage door opener, which had the door opening
and closing all by itself, tore it out and
installed another one?
MADAR Anomalies DataBase
Both the archives of the National UFO Reporting Center and the files of MUFON were checked for any reported UFO activity during the month of February and the states of Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Nothing of note was found.
Although this report was created to study the possibility of UFO incidents and MADAR detections in the midwest, some effort was made to see if there might have been any national or world correlations of note. Again, nothing suspicious was found.
