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.

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.
