I will give you some background information from a case I find interesting. I think this one deserves attention.
Beware, long post.
Here is a prior thread on the case.
I decided to make a thread on the subject because it seemed to be overlooked. Perhaps it was covered more, im not sure. Again im still a noob !

A sketch of the UFO the witness drew.
His physical burn marks.
Although the other thread gives a run down of the story, I will give a small portion of it.
He looked up and was surprised to see two red, glowing cigar-shaped objects descending at a forty-five degree angle. As they came nearer, their
appearance became more oval and then disc-shaped.
As he watched, one of the objects stopped and hovered, while the other one descended and landed on a large, flat rock about 160 feet away from him.
After a few moments the object still in the air departed, changing from red to orange to grey as it flew into the west and disappeared behind the
clouds. The object on the ground also turned from red to grey and finally to the color of "hot stainless steel" surrounded by a golden-hued glow. He
had been wearing welding goggles while chipping at the quartz to protect his eyes from flying rock fragments, and now they served the additional
purpose of protecting his eyes from a brilliant purple light that was shining through openings in the object's exterior. The object was making a
hissing sound and a whirring noise, and it gave off a sulphurous smell.
After about half an hour, a door opened in the side of the object, revealing a lighted interior. Michalak decided to move closer, and when he was
approximately sixty feet away from the object, he began to hear two voices over the other sounds coming from the object.
This is a part I found interesting. The man spoke to them in numerous languages....
Believing that the object was a secret experimental American craft of some sort, Michalak called out in English. There was no response, so he tried
Russian, German, Italian, French, Ukrainian, and then English again. There was still no response.
Michalak approached the open door and stuck his head inside. There he saw a maze of lights on what appeared to be a panel, and beams of light in
horizontal and diagonal patterns. There was also a cluster of lights flashing in a random sequence "like on a computer."
Not seeing anyone, he pulled back and waited. Suddenly, three panels slid together, closing the opening completely. Michalak then examined the outer
surface of the object, noting that it was like highly polished colored glass with no breaks or seams in its surface. He touched it, and it melted his
Without warning, the object moved, and something like an exhaust vent was now in front of him. It was about nine inches high by six inches wide, and
contained a uniform pattern of round holes, each about 1/16 inch in diameter. A blast of hot gas shot from these holes onto his chest, setting his
shirt and undershirt on fire and causing him severe pain. He tore off his burning garments and threw them to the ground. He looked up in time to see
the craft depart like the first, and felt a rush of air as it ascended.
Another interesting thing to note is this.
Michalak never made any money off his experience.
After the object was gone, Michalak noticed a strong odor of burning electrical insulation along with the sulphurous smell he had noticed earlier.
He also became sick.
Interesting notes in this source.
Just before rolling film, the director wanted Michalak to relax
and feel more comfortable in front of the cameras. He began
talking with him about the weather, his work, what Canada was
like and other nonchalant topics. Then, the director said,
"Well, Steve, I guess your being burned by the UFO was the most
incredible thing that has ever happened in your life." To the
surprise of everyone on the set, Michalak answered, "Oh, no, it
wasn't." Prodded further, Michalak bravely told the story of his
experiences in the Nazi death camps, speaking bluntly and
unwaveringly about the atrocities he witnessed firsthand. No one
dared interrupt his story, and when he was finished, the set was
filled with a stunned silence; the entire crew was awestruck.
Later, one of the crew said to me, "This guy is the most
credible we've ever interviewed. What's being burned by a flying
saucer compared with Nazi ovens?" From that moment on, Michalak
was treated with much respect and dignity, justly deserved. The
questioning regarding the UFO turned from "Did it really
happen?" to "What happened?"
