Scientists see UFOs & Unique Sightings by DIA Employee
The initial sighting was a close encounter, which took place inside a house, with an object having distinct behavior. The second sighting was a close encounter with two objects, involving one object with large windows, a strange man, strange lights inside the car, and a car chase that could have been fatal. It lasted around four hours and poltergeist activity occurred later. These sightings were unique because the two witnesses had the initial sighting together when very young, and the second one in their twenties. One witness was working for the DIA, as a GS-11 with a SCI clearance in an Air Order of Battle section, identifying aircraft from satellite photography.
