Experience: “Aliens and UFOs on Halloween night near HAARP!!! After seeing what looked like a meteor falling out of the sky, on a trip to Valdez, we were followed by black suvs, a helicopter, firetrucks, and Alyeska pipeline response vehicles. It was a clear night, but we soon were driving through what was to be guessed as a fog bank.

After rolling down the windows we soon discovered the fog was actually wood smoke. After exitting the smoke later down the road a small glowing cone shaped object was seen innthe rearview mirror following us down the road. It soon disappeared my view, as it was to close to the rear of the vehicle. When it was out of my view the car backfired, and I saw sparks in the rearview passenger mirror, as if the object had hit the ground and rolled on the asphault.

Later down the road coming to a bridge, four figures were crossing the road towards the west. Unbelievable, but I swear as we passed they were greys, in the middle of the winter and naked. Ten minutes later, about one hundred feet out from the vehicle a red ball was following us. Staying the same rate as us, and the same altitude as us, as we were heading up Thompson pass. Nothing out of the ordinary until we got to the top of the pass.

Then I saw what looked what to be a giant pyramid hovering over Valdez. It had three lights, one on each corner. After we got through the pass and into the canyon before Valdez, I lost sight of the triangular shape in the sky. Once we got through the canyon and close to Valdez, I noticed the object was gone. Before getting onto the ferry we noticed Alyeska pipeline response vehicles driving all over the city of Valdez.”

• Experience: “10/15/89 Bright fast moving light over valley west of Glennallen, Alaska Extreme bright light moving East to South West across a wide valley. This was AFTER is was right behind my parked car. I was driving back to Anchorage, it was late, and I parked in a rest area about 25 miles from Glennallen, Alaska. No houses or buildings for several miles from the rest or pull off area.

A large tractor trailer truck, that had not been there when I pulled into the rest area, was there after the bright light (which gave off a loud humming noise) shot off toward the South West. I had gotton out of the car to try to figure out what was going on. I was very suprised to see the truck. I didn’t hear it come into the rest area, and it was parked 20-30 feet from the front of my Audi sedan. I ran to the driver’s door on the truck.

The driver just looked at me and said something like you see things out here at night that no one would believe, or words to the effect. I was pretty excitited at the time. This happened 18 years ago. I had no idea who to tell it to or report it to until seeing something about the National UFO Reporting Center on TV last night on the History Channel. Also, I was concerned about saying anything to anyone other than my wife as it could have effected my professional life.

I did not see what looked like a craft. The light was so bright and it moved so fast I was simply stunned. The humming noise was very loud. I can only descpribe is a “electrical” in nature. No other way to describe the sound other than the volume. I believe there is more to this. However, in an effort to keep from sounding like I’m crazy I will leave this report as is. It was the strangest experience of my life. I do not drink or do drugs. Never have.

It would be possible for someone to think I was under the influance after giving the full details of the incident. I don’t believe I was abducted. However, the truck and driver and electrical problems (which cured themselves) with the car would tend to make it look like I was abducted or came close. To this day I have no idea what happened.

• Experience: “Unidentified Bright Light Sitting On Road While driving from Glennallen to Anchorage in a remote wilderness area, we observed a very bright light apparently on the road from a high ridge about 2.5 miles and several hundred vertical feet above the light. As we drove down the hill we lost any view of the light. The road at the bottom of the hill turned approximately 90 degrees to the right, and then went up perhaps 30 feet vertically and about a quarter-mile horizontally before we could see the light again. It was painfully brilliant to our dark-adapted eyes and we slowed the vehicle more and more as we drew closer because we could not see the road in front of us well enough to drive — finally drawing to a complete stop approximately 200′ from the object.

Multiple flashings of the high beams to attempt to get the light reduced did not help, and we slowly creeped forward in small spurts until we were approximately 150′ from the light source. We waited perhaps 5 minutes for the light to change in some manner or another and began to get rather alarmed at the strangeness of it. I made some comments about the fact that the light was super brilliant on the trees for as far as a line of sight carried it, but that it didn’t reflect off of the metal of the car very intensely, so that I surmised it had some sort of polarization to it.

At that point our irritation turned quite sharply to fear when the unusual and unexplained nature of the event forcibly hit us. We backed up slowly for about 50′, approached the again light slowly, freaked out, turned the car around, and raced back around the curving road through the 90 degree left turn and up the long, tall, straight hill. It’s embarrassing, but in our adrenaline-flushed brains, we had felt the car was “bumped” or “jostled” as we were approaching the light the second time, and we hit a top speed in excess of 90 mph in our subsequent flight.

The car was floored all of the way up the hill and well beyond. We travelled approximately 5 miles away from the light (and away from our intended destination) at high speed before we felt safe enough to pull over and discuss contacting the Alaska State Troopers. We shortly decided that we had been rather cowardly, and did not want to be grist for the media grill, or the subject of jokes and ribbings. Accordingly, we elected to return to the top of the large hill to observe the light from afar. Our second trip to the top of the hill confimed that the light was still there. And we watched it for what seemed like a long time — though it may have only been a few minutes.

There was no other traffic in either direction, and the light was unwavering. We were too spooked to investigate with another close approach to the light, and we attempted to restore our self-respect by making a quasi-scientific observation: The light was of the apparent brightness of a large stadium light pack. It had a color temperature of 8000 or higher, i.e., an actinic blue-white that destroyed our night-vision if we stared at it too long. It seemed to be a uniform rectangular source approximately 30′ by 20′ in size when we approached it closely, but appeared to be oval in shape when viewed from above and at a couple miles distance on top of the big hill. We finally decided to return to Glennallen and report our sighting to the Troopers… or at least just go back and keep the whole thing to ourselves.

We had only driven back towards Glennallen for about 2 minutes when a light source appeared to be coming from the Glennallen direction. This time however, it was a large tractor-trailer rig, a huge truck with a huge trailer that was literally barrelling down the road at 65 mph (we clocked it). We stopped and followed the rig. We began to look forward to seeing what would happen to the scarey USO (Unidentified Sitting Object) as the comfortingly huge and purposeful symbol of human industry plowed toward it.

At the top of the large hill, and cruising in the wake of the big rig, we saw the light still sitting there, less than three minutes away as the truck briefly hit seventy on the downhill stretch. We came to the bottom of the hill, turned the 90 degree corner to our right, and coasted along in the wake of the giant truck, an irresistable force! As we came to where the light had been seen before, there was nothing! We hurriedly scanned everywhere, but stayed close to the truck.

No lights, nothing! Within the next five minutes, we passed several cars going the other direction, but never saw anything that even remotely looked like the strange light. On a return trip later in the week we stopped at the place where we had had such a fright a few nights before.

I personally walked the pavement in the area, but could see nothing out of the ordinary. We never knew what to make of the strange event, but have rarely driven a remote road at night without remembering it. It has been more than twenty years as I write this report, so I apologize for any inaccuracies or forgotten details. I have not observed any other unexplained phenominon in my life. ((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION)) Hello Mr. Davenport, You may post my account as you wish.

I was quite impressed with the ufocenter site, and am sorry that I did not get a chance to record my father-in-law’s experiences on that same stretch of road before he passed away. His story was much more interesting, but never recorded accurately. I am now sorry that I never interviewed him carefully on the subject. I plan to return to the ufo center site in the future and peruse the information there in more detail when I have time to do so. Thank you for your fascinating endeavor — and especially for your objective efforts to discriminate fact from fancy. ((END FOLLOW-UP))”
