The time was 4.45 pm on Wednesday 7 January 1970, the place was lmjarvi, 15 km NW of Heinola in southern Finland. Woodman Aarno Heinonen, 36, and farmer Esko Viljo, 38, both active competition skiers, were out skiing. They came down from a little hill to a glade where they usually take a pause. It was sunset, and a few stars were visible in the unclouded sky. It was very cold (-17 Celsius) and windless. They had been standing in the glade for about 5 minutes when they heard a buzzing sound, and caught sight of a very strong light moving through the sky. It approached from the north, made a wide sweep, and came at them from the south, descending as it came. The faint buzzing sound became louder. The light halted, and then they could see that a luminous red-grey mist was swirling round it. Puffs of smoke were thrown up from the top of the cloud. The two men stood quite still staring into the air, saying nothing. The cloud was soon down as low as 15 m, and they could see what was inside it: a round object, flat at the bottom, metallic in appearance and about 3 m in diameter. Heinonen’s account, as reported by GICOFF (the Goteberg UFO information centre) runs: ‘The round craft hovered awhile completely motionless above us while the buzzing sound could still be heard, quite low. Then the huge disc began to descend along with the red-grey fog which became more thin and transparent It stopped at a height of 3-4 m, so near I could have touched it if 1 had reached with my ski-stick. ‘The craft was completely round. When it came down obliquely towards us we saw it had a dome on the upper side. Along the lower edge was a kind of raised part on which were three spheres or domes spaced equidistantly, From the centre of the bottom projected a tube, approximately 25 cm in diameter, from which suddenly there came an intense beam of light. ‘I don’t think we said anything to each other at all. We were completely amazed. We saw the light move a couple of times before stopping and intensely illuminating a patch of snow about a metre in diameter, with round it a dark edge, almost coal-black and 1 cm wide. ‘I was standing completely still. Suddenly I felt as if somebody had seized my waist from behind and pulled me backwards. I think I took a step backwards, and in the same second I caught sight of the creature. It was standing in the middle of the light beam with a black box in its hands. Out of a round opening in the box there came a yellow light, pulsating. The creature was about 90 cm tall, with very thin arms and legs. Its face was pale like wax. I didn’t notice the eyes, but the nose was very strange, it was a hook rather than a nose. The ears were very small and narrowed towards the head. The creature wore some kind of overall in a light green material. On its feet were boots of a darker green colour, which stretched above the knees. There were also white gauntlets going up to the elbows, and the fingers were bent like claws around the black box.’ Viljo: ‘The creature stood in the middle of the bright light and was luminous like phosphorus, but its face was very pale. Its shoulders were very thin and slanting, with thin arms like a child’s. I did not think of the clothes, only noticing that they were greenish in colour. On its head was a conical helmet shining like metal. The creature was less than 1 m tall.’ Suddenly it turned and directed the opening of the box towards Heinonen: The pulsating light was very bright, almost blinding. It was very silent in the forest. Suddenly a red-grey mist came flowing down from the object and large sparks started to fly from the illuminated circle of snow. The sparks were like tapers, about 10 cm long, red, green and violet. They floated out in long curves, rather slowly; many of them hit me, but though I expected them to burn me, I did not feel anything.’ Viljo: ‘The sparks were shining in several colours. It was very beautiful. At the same time the red mist became thicker and hid the creature. Suddenly it was so dense that I could not see Aarno even though I knew he was standing only a few metres away from me.” Heinonen: ‘I could only just see Esko. The mist was very thick and I could no longer see the creature.’ Viljo: ‘I saw the being for perhaps 15-20 seconds, no longer. Suddenly the beam melted, flew up like a flickering flame, and was sucked into the gap in the craft. After that it was as if the fog curtain was torn to pieces. The air above us was empty! I don’t think you can say we were afraid. We were laughing and talking about this light. But at the same time we felt a little uneasy.” They stayed there for perhaps three minutes, Gradually Heinonen became aware of a numbness in his right side. When he stepped forward on his skis, his right leg wouldn’t support him and he fell in the snow. ‘My right leg had been nearest the light. The whole leg was stiff and aching. My foot was as if anaesthetised.’ Viljo: It was growing dark. I asked Aarno if we should be on our way. I thought he was joking when he sat down in the snow. But then I saw he couldn’t get up though he tried over and over again.’
The other proposal is that they are Interdimensional creatures that actually live right next to and with us, and can flip that "Field" and lift the veil and walk into our relm at will...perhaps via their "magic craft". So they are still not ExtraTerrestrials....as they are here, with us, behind the cloak.??
Seem to be a lot of round or egg shaped 3ish meter diameter craft, in those days. I recall a similar one in the fields of France? where a farmer had an encounter with a small humanoid, holding a stun type of object in its hand that paralysed the farmer.

The red swirling mist sounds like plasma to me. The buzzing sound the electric field generated by the plasma or the cathodes and anodes making the plasma with DC current.
The three semi spheres are there to control the strength of the electric fields within the plasma to make the field asymmetric or of a gradient. This allows for steering and the initial impulse for propulsion.
The smoke coming off the vehicle is the air burning. This is common with some types of plasma blooms.
The creature could either be a human (ill get to that later) a robotic creature or an actual alien.
The field the vehicle produces alters the metrics of the Electromagnetic vacua (virtual particles, em quantum fluctuations) of the vacuum its self. Basically creating a superconducting bubble around the vehicle or test mass. Because its altering how EM propigates its probably causing the electrochemical and quantum based systems (microtubels) in the brain to not function properly. The person subjected to this field could have virtigo, alice in wonderland like sensory perception issues and time distortion from their perspective. Theyre literally tripping.
The box the creature zaps the guys with that leaves them in various states of numbness and incapacitation sounds to me like a PEP weapon. The plasma bolt when impacting the person converts its energy into various electromagnetic forms including electricity. Its a fancy taser basically.
The beam coming out of the bottom of the vehicle that the creature is in is unresolved in my book. Although the 1cm black ring around the perimeter of the beam sounds like the beam was hollow and acting like a sheild to protect the creature from the craft field. Telling is that the beams 1cm black portion. I suspect its really two concentric beams acting like a parallel plate wave guide to rectify the altered refractive index that the field of the craft is creating. Hence the absence of light in that ringed portion. Its still there just being cast elsewhere.
The multicolored sparks shooting off the beam probably an optical artifact of that beams interaction with the PEP weapon firing through it or the crafts field. Notice it demonstrates a prism like effect. To me this sounds like the light has a quickly altering phase velocity as it travels through the various fields and beams at play here.
All in a very interesting account with useful details to examin.
Its possible the two guys were making it up for attention or for a fun hoax but the details are technologically explainable so doubt that they are being decietful and are accurately to the best of their abilities recounting what they experienced.
Its possible this was an encounter with a man made vehicle as the date of the account would make for it to be plausible with classified military technological developments. I suspect that this is the case in this ibstance but i am also open and would not be surprised if it was extra terrestrial in nature instead.

That sounds like the only UFO I ever saw in Sept 2004. There was what looked like a ball of light flying over and under a plane. It disappeared then again went over and under the plane (plane was out of DFW and not very high). It made some zig-zag moves horizontally then up and down then disappeared again. As I was looking for it I saw what appeared to be a red glow through some distant trees. The center appeared circular solid red with an oval translucent red surrounding it. It hovered a minute or two then it disappeared and then saw it making the up and down zigzags again as a bright light ball. Eventually went off to the Northwest at a slower pace but still many times faster than a plane.

I read a post either here or on reddit that pointed out how most alien encounters have the exact same elements to the story: UFO lands, alien comes out of it holding a strange light, alien shines light on the witness who blacks out.
The thread was suggesting that whatever is happening during an "encounter" most of the information is being filled in by the witness thus the difference descriptions of the appearance of aliens (small green men/lizard creatures/greys), the different spacecraft (cigar shaped/metallic/glowing) and the different light (emanating from a pistol/hand-held machine).
It seems unlikely that all these different breeds of Aliens would all have the exact same protocol for dealing with humans who see them right? Then why do witnesses report the same occurances?
Maybe it's a 'glitch in the matrix', merely a program made by whatever created us to have direct contact with us, or implant the same memory for whatever reason
IMHO it is misrepresentative to say... "most" alien encounters ... for there are many groups with many agendas and moralities or lack thereof coming here and taking things including people.... with many technologies some which overlap....I concur that there is an identifiable cluster of abduction accounts which fit the template you explain....I would define this as a cluster template.
Consequently there are many different protocals used by many different groups which is the causality of the wide spectrum of evidenciary descriptions abductees provide.
IMHO we should stop believing in majic and fairytales....these groups use simple technologies....many people now are unravelling these very technologies....sound light vibration frequency ect ect .....creating neutral dimension zones in replication of natures methodology....these are just technologies not sorcery.
IMHO many of these abductee contacts are as real as rain.
