Youth claims seeing 2 green men from UFO
An unidentified flying object landed on a Malone farm Saturday night and two
green men were seen briefly before they disappeared, according to a
15-year-old Malone youth.
Mark Ziegelbauer of Route 1, Malone, said he
saw the green men after the object landed on a neighbor's farm. The
"saucer" was first spotted by his father Orville who was working outside on
the Ziegelbauer farm around 10 p.m. The elder Ziegelbauer called to his son
and both saw the multi-colored lights which Mark said were "kind of low"
and "kind of big". He said the lights were "going around" as it went past
the Ziegelbauer's new silo and landed in a hayfield out of view. Mark said
he drove over to the area where the object had landed and saw the two green
men when he shone the car's bright headlights. He dimmed the lights as the
two men put their hands up, he said, and "disappeared somehow" in front of
his eyes. Mark did not see the grounded flying saucer, he said. One of the
two men was slightly bigger than Mark, who is 5 feet 7 inches tall, he
said. The other was smaller. He was so "scared" he did not notice
anything particular about their features, he said. The object, which was
about the size of a "small camper-trailer", Mark said, was not seen when it
left by Mark or his father. Mark said they both have seen almost the same
thing, minus the green men, once before.
On Sunday, a woman from the UFO
Education Center in Appleton came to Malone and spoke with the
Ziegelbauers. She also showed them some photos, Mark said.
Thompson, 17, of rural Campbellsport, reported Monday that he saw an
unidentified flying object in the Dotyville area about 9 p.m. Saturday, an
hour before the Ziegelbauer sighting. Thompson said it looked like a big
meteor, but added he was positive it was not. He said he saw the UFO as he
was driving with a friend along County Trunk W near County Trunk B south of
