Summary: Mr, Alben Formiller, a retired Chicago policeman and a resident of Phoenix, about 70 years old, was at Cholla Bay, Mexico on the 5th of November. At about 9 o’clock, he said, he was startled to see that suddenly the ground and ocean were “lit up like daylight.” He had been camped on the beach all day and was leaning against his pickup-camper about 25 feet from the water’s edge, Formiller could make out a beam coming from the sky but at first could not discern what it was coming from. Within a few seconds, however, he could make out the object itself, which was greyish-white, oval, and with a black or dark-colored tube, l2-16 inches in diameter, just to the left of center of the object and tilted to the left at a 5-10 degree angle from the vertical. Formiller said the object was cloudlike ard appeared to “roll around” very slowly, Occasionally, he said, parts of it would billow out but never separate from the main body of the “cloud,” No sound was heard. At first the “searchlight” illuminated approximately % mile of the water and a small portion of rocky headland to the left of the witness. Almost immediately after he spotted it, however, the lighted area narrowed to a diameter of about % mile. This lighted area and the beam fluctuated between 50 and 150 feet from the shore. Shortly thereafter, the searchlight went out and a white light, weaker than the searchlight and described as a glow, illuminated the upper half of the object so that the underside could no longer be seen, Then the white glow disappeared and the object made a 180 degree tum, affording Formiller (because of its slight upward tilt) a view of the top and side of the object as it turned. This enabled him to observe a green glow or light that the extended l/3 of the distance around the object on each side from a central point on what he took to be its “back.” Again the top was illuminated and the bottom was not visible and the object began to move away, Formiller estimated the speed to be less than that of a jet, and it maintained a steady speed until it disappeared from sight into the west, Formiller made the logical assumption that the object must have been or at least could have been seen from San Felipe, Baja California, which is across the Gulf of California to the west.

After witnesses claimed to have seen an elliptical object head over towards the copse at Cradle Hill, three or four witnesses decided to walk up and see if the object was at ground level. As they drew close to the copse their attention was drawn to rustling noises in the trees. They stopped to listen. The noise was apparently moving towards them. Whatever it was seemed to be getting closer, and the party became frightened at this point and walked steadily back down the hill. One of them, Stephen Hall, glanced around and saw an entity ” about three-feet tall, apparently hunched or bent over like an ape or monkey” it lurched over the small path behind the group. The entity, silhouetted by the early light of daybreak, had climbed within seconds over a nearby stile into the adjoining field and into the early morning mist.
