"We looked at our clocks and we had three battery running clocks, two in the kitchen and one in the living room and for some strange reason all three clocks were stopped at the same time"

Relevant newsclippings compiled by Loren E Gross:
Salesman Alan Cave claims he became a time traveler the day he spotted a strange orange cloud.
For as he drove under the mysterious object in the sky, Alan says his milometer, his watch and a digital pen all moved... BACKWARDS.
Yesterday he told of his close encounter on the A46 between Bath and Stroud.
“It was exactly 11 o’clock when I glanced at my watch and it said eight o’clock. My digital pen said nine.
“Both were right when I set out.
“Then the speedo started going back – it was weird. It lost 300 miles, though a mechanic had since told me it’s impossible.”
Alan, 45, of Dorchester Road, Tauton, Somerset, doesn’t believe in flying saucers.
“But something very odd occurred in those few seconds – and I wouldn’t like it to happen again.”

It was a shaken John Struble who got the cement truck under way again after the object was gone, who noticed moments later that his watch apparently had been stopped too. Mrs. Struble said the watch had kept perfect time prior to the sighting, and was five minutes slow afterwards — approximately the duration of the UFO appearance.
The watch was non-electric.

Some UFO Notes By Loren E. Gross
Springfield, Missouri - April, 1984.
"Several head of cattle graze on the property; there have been recent attempts at rustling. The caretaker calls his wife on the citizens band radio in his truck. She is at their home on the property. A friend of hers is visiting. The caretaker says he is going to check out this suspicious occurrence.
He drives toward the lights. He comes to the end of a dirt road in front of a deep ravine, near the spot where he saw the lights.
That is all he remembers.
There is a 10 minute gap in the report. No radio contact. Nothing. Except that, somehow, the caretaker finds himself on the other side of the normally impassable ravine.
He calls his wife for help. “Where are you?” she asks. “I don’t know,” he responds.
His truck won’t start, the lights won’t work, he feels disoriented. When he finally returns to the house, his wife and her friend notice that his battery powered watch is running 12 minutes slow. The next day, he will have to replace the alternator and the regulator in his truck. Both have been burned out.
What is the caretaker’s opinion of what happened? “He doesn’t have one,” Mrs. Becker says. “He knows something unusual happened to him, but he’s not sure what.”
