This is another astounding case in which yet again the UFO left trace evidence, that once again was tested by professional labs. Here is a brief
summary of the encounter….
Mrs. Kuss reports that it was about 2 am (in July or perhaps early August) and she couldn't fall asleep: "I don't know why, but I couldn't.
And suddenly the room simply became all red ... the whole room became red because there was something glowing outside the _ I saw this object in
the sky. It had the shape of an ellipsis and glowed in red, a very intense red. ... And it was very slowly lowering itself onto the field. The glow
from this thing was enormous. The whole object was emitting such light that it reminded me of a bright ball, but with a distinctive shape inside the
glow. And it was going down, very, very slowly." At first Mrs. Kuss thought it might be a meteorite, but realized it couldn't be because it was
descending so slowly. Sometimes it even "stopped" for awhile and would then continue its descent. The object, which was about 150 meters away from
her, appeared to be 3-4 meters across. "I think it could have been several meters in length ... I saw it very clearly, it wasn't very far away,
glowing like a piece of [hot] iron. There had been wheat [in the field] which my son had sown, but it had been reaped already. And I thought that,
since this fire landed there, the field might catch on fire from it. I even wanted to wake up my family, but the light began to dim. It was dimming
out very, very slowly. I saw that nothing was on fire, so I went to bed and in the morning during breakfast I told my family about it, I said that
this object had landed there. And I showed them exactly where it landed."
Mrs. Kuss reports that about 15 minutes elapsed from the moment she first saw the red glow in her bedroom until the object landed and became so dim
she could no longer see it. She continued to observe the field for about another hour before finally going to bed. She reports that she noticed no
unusual smell and experienced no tingling of the skin or other possible electromagnetic effects, and she doesn't recall hearing any unusual animal
noises. The object itself was silent. There are no street-lights in her area and none of the lights in her house (or the radio or TV) were on, so she
is unaware of any electrical interference which may have been caused by the object. The only clock observed in the house was hand-wound.
Now for the discovery of the “stone ring” and the vitrified soil. The next morning Mrs. Kuss’s grandson after hearing of the event went out to
search for evidence of the encounter. He went out to the farms field and discovered not any scorch marks but a ring of about 10-15 stones placed in a
circular pattern. The stones were anywhere from small to about sized and relatively heavy (her grandson was only 11 at the time).

Upon further inspection of the stone we can clearly see the glassy and bubble like vitrification of it…

Now for some tests run on it by Frontier Labs
The following tests were performed:
* Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) analysis and
Electron Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)…
Physical Form: The two glassy stones are shown in the color photos, above. As may be seen, the larger sample (before being later split in two)
was approximately 1.2 cm long; the smaller was slightly less than 1 cm. Both are seen to be of similar color, a very dark green-black. We also observe
that small (< 2mm) bubbles and voids are present in both, consistent with the immediately apparent notion that these samples are essentially glass.
EDS and Comparative Analysis: EDS scans taken from assorted spots on both stone samples are quite consistent. We find Si (silicon), O (oxygen), Al
(aluminum), Mg (magnesium), Ca (calcium), K (potassium) and minor amounts of Fe (iron) and Ti (titanium).

Findings showed that the rocks were not radioactive but highly vitrified, the molecules were fused together indicative of temperatures above 1500

Two analogous materials may be found which resemble these samples. A semi-precious gemstone originally derived from ancient meteoric glass in the
region of the Moldau River--called Moldavite--resembles our samples somewhat in form, but not necessarily in color, as Moldavite is usually a brighter
and lighter green. However the samples do very much resemble vitrified soil, produced by a well-known toxic or nuclear waste remediation process known
as ISV: in-situ vitrification. In this process electrical arcs are made to flow deep into soil areas contaminated with toxic wastes or radioactive
substances, liquifying the soil components and producing a non-permeable glassy material as the liquid soils cools. This glassy residual can then
either remain safely underground (since the toxic wastes are now contained) or can be subsequently safely hauled away.
Yea , I am sure Mrs. Kuss had access to top of the line toxic waste clean up technology!! Okay so that option is out. What about lightening? No,
because the shear volume and size of the affected stones. A hoax? Possible but as shown in the most recent UFO Hunters
episode it isn’t
feasible, here is why.
For one there is only two forms of welding torches that could achieve this or be readily available. The first is a “Arc Welder”, but that is
and can not cause the widespread, large sized deformaties. The second would be
either a hydrogen torch or a oxy acetal one. But it took a professional welder over 2 minutes to create a coin sized piece of vitrified soil. It is
extremely hard to do with welders. In her expert opinion you would need like 15 of them directed in one area just to make on basketball sized piece!
So that is highly unlogical and unfeasible to do that, not to mention the money it would cost, considering the witnesses got nothing out of the report
I would say the torch explanation is out. This case is still open and unsolved.
