close encounters of the second kind,multiple witnesses,took place in Avon and sopley Hampshire,UK,DATE 6th November 1967
Sometime between 1:00AM and 2:00AM Carl farlow was driving a truck loaded with domestic cookers on the A338 trunk road between the villages of sopley
and Avon in Hampshire England
he was approaching a junction near a bridge over the river Avon when his wagon's lights died,its diesel engine that needed no spark to keep it
running kept running.
assuming some sort of short circuit or blown fuse he pulled up to try to find the course of the failure.
before he could climb down from his cab he was astonished to see a bizarre "egg shaped object" it was moving from left to right across the road in
front of him at a height of about 25 feet from the ground.
the object was magenta coloured with a white base and was perhaps 80 feet long big enough to overhang both sides of the road.as it went from left to
right it expelled a strong smell like burnt wood and made a sound like a refrigerator.
as it crossed the road it excellerated gradually and after a few seconds it disappeared altogether from sight.
Farlow then realised that a jaguar car which had been coming in the opposite direction was stranded on the other side of the UFOs path.its driver who
was a veterinarian approached Farlow explained his vehicle was out of action and his lady passenger was hysterical,they suggested they call the
a call from a nearby booth that was working though its lights too were dead brought the police to the scene shortly afterwards.There preliminary
inspection of the site showed that the road seemed to have melted-almost inconceivable in an English winter.
the vets passenger was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for shock,whilst the two men were individually questioned first by the police and
secondly by the ministry of defence.
the next day Farlow returned to collect his wagon. a bulldozer was leveling the road,the phone booth was being re-painted and other people seemed to
be investigating the area with instruments.
a week or so later Farlow saw the same stretch of road had been re surfaced some 70 yards or so.
Now i like this case because of the fact there were multiple witnesses and the site where this took place was physically damaged so some thing
definitely did happen.
i have often thought of the possibilities, could this of been some military test vehicle perhaps nuclear gone wrong or a true off world alien
