Great post, Mirageman. One of the most interesting cases on record. Quite possibly my all time favourite even though I'm in the hallucination camp. Here are some examples of similar “spacecraft” that had entered popular culture around that time. They are from the 1977 documentary Mysteries of the Gods hosted by William Shatner. Did Robert ever see it? We’ll never know. But there are strong similarities between what he saw or thought he saw and the images in the documentary. The spherical spaceships not only have flanges around the circumference but they also contain smaller spheres.











Here's the documentary. The pictures appear at the 26min mark.

I do wonder if people have taken Bob's description of blades incorrectly. He only refers to one stick or pole coming out of the flange with what looked like blades on it. This sounds more a single spindle with blades around it than the little wind speed measuring devices that are on the craft his son in law imagines.

If a central set of blades, on a single spindle was above the flange, then this vehicle actually looks like a modification of an Avro car.

If it was extra terrestrial, then why blades at all...

Well maybe "UFO" are really "USO"

(unidentified submersible objects)

I'm highly curious why so many "golden age incidents" had diving suits
and the like. So many are spherical.. (like bathysphere)
heck even 'saucers' would make good underwater motifs.. and triangles
would be like manta rays. (both would cut through the water well)

So many sightings have that 'central hole', which would make a great
place to enter/exit (while swimming) from the craft.

Would also explain why no exotic engines and life-support have
EVER been seen associated with golden age craft.. if they are
only USO, you don't have to get very exotic.

Just talking out loud.. most of you know that i don't believe in
physical craft anyway.. but if they were physical.. or once
were physical, these thoughts would apply.

I wasn't expecting it to but it's becoming a favourite of mine as well.

This is just priceless...



There's just so much going on in that story: it's like Walter Evans-Wentz, Monty Python and In Search Of all rolled in to one.

Cornstarch!?



Oh wait. I see...



It looks like they keep the tiny pants-shredding units in another compartment. Or? is the "outer" spaceship huge and there are infinitely smaller pants-shredders within each pants-shredder? Like a Matryoshka pants-shredder?

Hold me closer Tiny Shredder. Count the saplings off the highwayyy

Nice find.

We'll never know if Bob was influenced by something like this, the Dr. Who craft or something else taken from TV or a magazine.

Even Monty Python as Bybyots says.

Just seems to me that if Bob had brought the same story home 40 years previously it would have been the "Fariy Folk", especially with the cornstarch, what with the Fairy Queen and grain mills and folklore and all.

Bob was like a modern Tam o' Shanter.

Thanks again for posting, I'd have otherwise never known the story.

Indeed, the very stuff itself...





I should add that the cornstarch adhered to Bob's trousers as he stumbled and dragged himself all the way home across the frozen tundra of Scotland.

Have you been on the pop tonight? Stop making me laugh!

Really enjoying this thread and I do remember all of the udo coverage we were getting at that point in time.

I knew the story and did think that the guy must have been terrified, even if it was some kind of hallucination. No wonder his and the dogs appetite were affected.

There was also an incident reported near Falkland in Fife. I will try and look that one out and post a link to it. It was also a weird one.i am from that area and remember seeing things in the sky reasonably frequently.

Off to use a search engine!

This one sounds to me like it was related to military craft. I don't know what the balls were that pulled him, but the description of semi transparency sounds a lot like early attempts to create an invisibility cloak.

There is a an area of Scotland that is supposedly a UFO hotspot. The so called "Falkirk Triangle"

As for this case. It seems impossible to fit a viable explanation without coming up to a stumbling block.

That's why it's one of my favourites. It creates endless speculation and fun.

@bybyots - yes the cornstarch is just another random piece of the puzzle....

It you read "Passport to Magonia" by Jacques Vallee, there are many stories where the little people are shown to be fond of baked goods..and also fond of abducting people with "missing time".

Maybe Mr Taylor got pressed into work in a faerie kitchen, and that's where the corn starch came from.

Dimensions, too.

Dr. Vallee goes into some great detail on the connections between Fairies, Gentry, Dwarves, & missing time. And also looking for food... Maybe they were just hungry?

I would assume one of the questions he was asked many times is if he ever saw something similar, and imo the obvious answer would be to say it reminded him of this contraption he saw in a movie. When making a show like this, some things are going to have be cut out, if his answer wasnt interesting, it would be cut. Not definitive, but I would tend to think he hadnt seen this object.

The tread marks having no source or exit plus the trousers leads me to think something happened here, but like so many cases, we will never really know.

Thanks for that. I have never heard that story before.

This bit was particularly odd.


.....Floating within this 'mist' were 'cocoons' made of 'fibrous' material each of which held a small 'being'. Panic now set in and as these 'cocoons' reached the car, Mary (the driver) sped away as fast as possible. As they left the scene they observed a 'gigantic blue flash' of light in the fields behind them....

What was odd about that?

My primary theory for 3 years has been that all high strangeness cases are some form of living beings in some form of colony creature cooperative.

That said living beings, no matter their ultimate composition (machine/matter/energy/exotic matter/energy)

Are hell bent on controlling the minds of whichever observers are precisely selected, to see and experience whatever little stage play is desired to be shown.

What the critters/sentient machines actually look like could be anything.

(Have you ever read "Messengers of Deception?" I consider it the number one most important UFO book ever written).

There is an episode of us TV series based on blue book in the 70s that is based on "real cases". One episode involves aliens repeatedly visiting a man and bringing him baked goods using the water he gave them.

The return of the 'Mist" and beings floating in cocoons. Where have we heard that story before I wonder...

The movies "The Mist" and "Cocoon"?


No I suspect you mean the little known case based in a Suffolk forest

You mean Project UFO
