March 4 1977, 0600hrs. SUNDOWN (MANITOBA : CANADA)


Ludwig Siegal was driving east along Provincial Road to his farm outside Sundown when he saw a sort of shimmering oval luminosity, the size of a car, about 4.5m above the road directly ahead. The thing’s outer edges were white-cream, getting yellower towards the centre. Ludwig drove under the silent light and about 1km further along his headlights illuminated three entities in the middle of the road, arranged in a row less than 8m in front of his vehicles. These things were 1.5m tall and shaped rather like bowling pins, with large heads, think necks and a sort of flared body “like a skirt”. He was unable to break and ploughed into the things but felt no impact, and when he looked back he saw the things stand up again and then shrink down, “like a balloon deflating. The matter was reported to the police but there were no traces of things and no sign of impact on Ludwig’s car.
