A South Dakota Sioux Tribe security officer reported that hundreds of softball-sized red lights spun around his vehicle while driving home from work March 6, 2011, and that he had an encounter with two “translucent ” beings, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The man’s wife filed the MUFON report March 7 after her husband returned home “visibly shaken” and apparently with missing time. The wife stated that the drive home from the casino usually takes 90 minutes, but that the events began around 11:15 p.m. and her husband arrived home at 2 a.m.
The man was driving alone in his vehicle when he noticed the red lights about 11:40 p.m. on Highway 63 about five miles south heading into Eagle Butte.
“The red lights, about 100-200 of these red lights, kept going around the car for a couple of miles,” the witness stated. “They never got super close, like two car lengths away from me, but all around me.”
A few miles down the highway, the man noticed that his car was slowing down.
“I was doing about 60 mph, but it slowed down to 40 mph, and wouldn’t go any faster. Then the red lights just disappeared. They didn’t fly off or anything, they just disappeared. The car then went back up to 60 mph like I normally drive it.”
When Highway 63 met a gravel road near a wind block experimental station, he noticed something standing along the road.
“I got a feeling of goosebumps all over me. It was tingly cold feeling all over me. Then I saw this thing on the side of the road where the gravel road meets the road and before I knew it, it was on the car. It reached in and touched my head through the windshield and ran its hand down my back. My back got real hot.”
The man described the alien.
“It had an oblong head, really thin body, thin arms and legs. It was translucent. It was glowing like a real dim light bulb cause you can see through it. Eyes were size of human, really long nose long in length. It has a really big mouth. Its arms were like sticks. They were parallel through each other. The two sticks looked like it was glowing. It was around 4 foot tall, but its arms stretched.”
There was another being standing along the road too.
“The other one, on the left hand side of the road had a face like a beast, horrifying, ugly, looked wrinkly, walked like a squat about the size of a goat. It was glowing too, reddish brown. It was wide and narrow.”
The being along the side of the road disappeared quickly, but the alien that appeared to enter the car stayed with the man until he reached an area where there were homes.
The wife said her husband’s head was hot and his demeanor was agitated when he arrived home. The husband also noticed that he had used up more gas than usual.
