An Alabama witness recalls a UFO encounter near Scottsboro when “an intense white light” engulfed the vehicle he was driving and shut off the car, street lights and watches, according to December 10, 2014, testimony in Case 61905 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The events occurred in April of 1981 when the witness accompanied his fiancée and her parents to visit the fiancée’s brother and family in Scottsboro. . . .
. . . “At around 11:30 p.m. we left her brother’s house and began the 5-7 mile trip to the in-law’s house. After about a quarter-mile the car began to knock and shut off. The radio stopped and shut off. At the same time, a bright white light appeared over the tree line just off the road to the right – approximately to the northeast.”
The sounds of Mother Nature disappeared.
“We had the windows cracked about two inches and noticed no crickets which we heard upon leaving the house and entering the car. The road is narrow at that point, with water on the left side and a house just prior to it. There is a street light at that point, which had also turned off when the bright light appeared.”
The witnesses did not understand what was happening to them.
“As the intense and blinding white light shone upon us through the windshield with us trying to peer up and find out what was going on, Anna asked if we should get out to see.
“I said, ‘No,’ also mentioning that we should stay buckled in and lock the doors, forgetting about the windows being partially down.”
They then noticed another anomaly.
“I looked at my new Seiko LCD watch and it had stopped, as the screen was blank and even the internal light would not work when I pressed the button. Anna’s battery powered analog watch even stopped. I don’t remember the exact time, though.” . . .
