In 1971, in the small town of Delphos, Kansas, a well documented case of
physical evidence relating to UFOs occurred. The case has not been debunked in any way, and stands on its own merits. The case involved sixteen-year-old Ron Johnson, and his dog Snowball. They were tending sheep on the family farm, when Ron was distracted by a mushroom-shaped UFO in the night. The metallic UFO was hovering about 75 feet from Ron amongst some nearby trees.
Glowing Ring on Ground: As soon as he was able to see well enough, he made a run to the house to tell his mother Erma and father Durel about the UFO. The object was now even higher in the sky. Ron's parents ran to see the UFO, and they did get a glimpse of the object as it was disappearing, and now big as the moon. Ron and his parents were
surprised to see a glowing ring on the ground, directly underneath where the object had hovered. Some of the trees around the area also had a glow to them.
"The circle was still very distinct and plain to see. the soil was dried and crusted. The circle or ring was approximately 8 feet across, the center of the ring and the outside area were still muddy from recent rains. The area of the ring that was dried was about a foot across and was very light in color.

Sighting in Delphos, Kansas on 2 November 1971. Physical trace evidence claims made in relation to a grey/white ring on the farm of Mr and Mrs Johnson and their son Ronald Johnson. (Commonly referred to as the “Delphos Ring” incident).
The National Enquirer reported on 27 May 1973 that it was awarding the Johnson family $5,000 “for supplying the most scientifically valuable UFO evidence in 1972”, following the recommendations of the members of its “blue ribbon” panel of UFO experts.
This incident has featured in the following:
- a list by James Carrion, the International Director of the Mutual UFO Network, of the “top 10 cases” in an interview in 2006.
- a list of cases produced by Stanton Friedman for the Fortean Times in 2007 as part of a survey of various researchers of the ten cases from 1947 onwards that interested them the most.
