1966: Michigan children discover landed UFO in local field

A Michigan witness recalls a UFO incident from 1966 in Carson City when she and a friend stepped into a local field and discovered a disc UFO on the ground, according to testimony in Case 63749 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database

The witness remembers that it was a clear day when she and her cousin – both 7 years old – entered a small enclosed field along the edge of town and saw the UFO on the ground.
“There were some pieces of metal along the tree line from a tornado and at first I thought it was one of those,” the witness stated.
But then the object moved.
“We approached and it zipped up in a zigzag manner. It was silver and had a little bit of heat wave shimmer. I don’t remember any features as it happened quickly.”

The witnesses’ mother recalls the children returned home “wound up” and she went back to the field to investigate their claims.
“She found a flattened, burnt area with holes like a coffee can was shoved in the ground.”
The witnesses does not recall being afraid of the UFO or the experience.
“I don’t remember being afraid, but I was scared of the fuel oil tank on legs after that and kept dreaming about a long, flat chicken coop back there.”
The witness provided one original illustration of the event with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 5, 2015.
