a short but interesting one today

According to a journalist's newspaper article in the Prince George Citizen, British Columbia, Canada, for December 11, 1957, a soldier with the US Army occupation force who has always maintained his anonymity told him the experience he had 6 years earlier near Salzburg, in Austria, at 11:20 p.m. in the night from the 15th to the 16th of May 1951. As he was on his way home, an entity moved into view from behind some bushes and pointed a long thin pencil-like device at him, and he was paralyzed. He described the entity as about 5 feet tall, wearing a transparent near-spherical helmet, a two-piece suit with tight-fitting legs that and merged into its toes. The body appeared to be rigid and cylindrical, with a torso round like a tin-can. It had no neck, proportionate legs, short arms ending in long and graceful four-fingered or three fingered hands. Its cranium was also slightly cylindrical, high, bald, with a white skull extending up and back from a wide, heart-shaped face. His eyes were large and compound like an insect's eyes. It had only holes for ears, two holes for a nose, and its mouth was a very small horizontal slit. The entity never spoke and never communicated anything. The entity strapped a black and square device to the soldier's chest. This made the soldier virtually weightless, and he was pulled towards a 150 feet disc-shaped apparatus posed in a nearby field. He and the entity floated up to the top of the disc, where a hatch opened, and they entered a transparent room. Inside, the soldier watched the Earth "fall away" through the flying saucer's transparent walls. The soldier told that he and the entity flipped over as they reached the "zone of gravitational neutrality between the Earth and the Moon." They continued past the Moon and on to Mars, where they quickly arrived and landed on a raised platform. The entity left the craft, and the soldier said he saw fields of big red flowers, canals with bridges across them, and other saucers with human captives leaving two in them. The entity then came back and the saucer took off. They passed a Martian satellite that "that looked like a tin ball," and 10 minutes later they were nearing Earth. Once returned on ground, again, the square black device was strapped to the soldier's chest, and he was floated to the ground. The entity pointed a pencil in the direction of the soldier's head, then a dog barked, which seemed to frighten the entity. No loss of memory followed for the man. The whole episode had taken about an hour. The journalist who wrote the article said he tried on several occasions to trick the soldier into contradicting himself, he did not, and thus he expressed that he was greatly impressed by his apparent truthfulness.

please ignore the writer's (patrick gross) conclusion that this is a contactee tall tale
this it obviously isn't contactees told tales of peacefull beings that were human-like, while in this encounter the beings treat the witness like a animal and they look very similar to the greys that would surface 30 years later
of course this encouter has some elements (mars base, non-existent mars sattelite) wich makes it pretty obvious it is nothing more than a illusion by the great cosmic trickster

This one is pretty interesting. We haven't found the red flowers,satellite, or bridges, but interesting just the same. If there is someone visiting it makes more sense they would come from our solar system, rather than from light years away.

Cosmic trickster indeed. I love stories of high strangeness. Skinwalker ranch is my favorite.
I've said before something is going on, a cosmic trickster is as valid a theory as any other.
Wonder if we will ever get to meet that dude. ( or dudett).

How could one find out where the planet Mars was in relation to Earth on 15/16 May, 1951? Would Mars have been in opposition like it is now, or on the other side of the sun? Interesting tale.

Sound like the Soviets may have slipped him some Sandoz.
Poor bastard.

10 minute warp trip to another world, which obviously is not ”our” Mars, but something which is another reddish planet.

Makes you wonder.

Why aren’t these tin men visiting here more often?
What did they want from this soldier, which should have been worth all the trouble?
Why did they take him to this round-trip? Or did they?
Why would Earth-Moon gravity affect positioning inside the saucer, but not at their destination? And why would gravity have an affect at all? What made him think this was the case here?

This story really does not make much sense. In the article itself, it was at the time put in the hoax bin. Most likely written by the BC newssman himself. I recon this conclusion after 60 years still holds.

One specific part of the story seems a bit suspect, namely the part about the “canals with bridges over them”. I recal, it was thought in the early days of observation that mars had huge canals covering its surface. My point is that, if the obductee made up his story he needed credible elemets, so he incorporated whatever scientific information was available at that time, or at least available to him. Never realizing that the “canal theory” was (allready, or not much later) dismissed by the implementation of better optics.

Offcourse this is pure conjecture on my part.

Too bad other events were not known. My experience predates that, about 1942-3 of the little bald headed buggers surrounding my cot as I slept. Not so frightening, just did not like being immobilized. Never told anyone then as being in a foster home did not give an avenue for any recouse. I do remember how they left me with a bloody nose however.

i am a fan of the second hypothesys
there is obviously nothing else (except maybe some simple unicellular life) on mars, so we are only left with the illusion option

the only problem is that the story sounds so similar to the modern greys
where the hell did the newsman get this idea?

i think by then the canal theory was already disproved as beings the mars albedo
nice observation though, somehow i missed that

wow how old are you?
there are many earlier experiences but they all (just like your's) surfaced after the grey era, wich makes me think they are false memories, this one however surfaced in 1957 (only 6 years later), so how did the soldier (or newsman) know about the greys?

The Soviets were in Eastern Austria
around 1955 "officially".

Their remaining "crew" still has a current
presence NOW.

They play all kinds of games.
Lots of Red Flowers on Mars.

Sarcastic with a hint of historical fact.
