Here's a video presentation of renowned author, newspaper and magazine reporter and investigator Ivan Sanderson's 1953 audio report (during a radio interview in New York) of what he discovered only one year earlier in 1952. The Braxton County (West Virginia) incident is world famous and continues to be evaluated with the top UFO investigators.
Considered one of the world's most unusual happenings, the UFO (sometimes referred to the Braxton County Monster and not to be confused with that other famous West Virginia monster, The Mothman") was seen by at least fourteen people. Hear Ivan Sanderson talk about what the kids saw... and how they (and a dog) reacted. The date was September 12, 1952. What the boys saw was described as a "shooting star" that fell to earth on the top of the hill adjacent to the playground. About the length of a football field away, they all saw an object that was glowing and hissing. Walking closer to check out the "star", they noted that it was about ten feet around.
A few feet away from this glowing object they saw two lights, much like the glow of flashlights, about twelve inches apart. One of the boys had a flashlight and when he turned it on the object a huge creature with "...a bright red face, bright green clothing, a head which resembled the ace of spades, and clothing which, from the waist down, hung in great folds" was seen. Newspapers sent special reporters to cover the story.
