Date: July 1940
Location: Jutland, Denmark
Summary: In the late 70’s, several authors told that in July or August 1940, one afternoon, in the center of Jutland, Denmark, a 15 year-old-boy went to the feeding trough with some cows, and then suddenly saw three weird characters who advanced in the North-East. They are described as wearing a dark green suit, of one piece that covered them entirely except for their face hidden behind a glass plate. From the shoulders to the feet, they had two bumps or pipes of ten centimeters thicknes{. These three beings were of normal size but advanced by slightly dandling the arms “like robots”, according to the statement of the witness.
At some thirty meters of him, they suddenly took the direction of the south and disappeared behind a hill. The boy then rushed there and saw a hemispherical shining object posed on the ground, with the three characters in the vicinity. Whereas he saw no door opening, he suddenly noticed that the beings were gone. The object emitted a high-pitched whistling sound like that of a metal axis spinning quickly, rose slowly, and after 6 to 7 seconds, took the direction of south-east where it was lost from sight.
