Summary/Description:  John Avis, 29, his wife Elaine, 25, and 3 children, were driving home to Aveley, traveling southward along Hacton Lane and the Aveley Road when they saw an oval pale blue light to their left. This light traveled with them, and presently crossed the road in front of them, about 500 yards away.

About a mile further on, they suddenly came upon a bank of thick green mist covering the entire road, 8-9 ft high. At this moment the car radio started crackling and smoking, and John pulled out its wires. The car’s headlights went out, and they entered the mist. In the mist “it was very light,” and they felt very cold; there was a dead silence. After what seemed like a second or two, there was a jolt, and the mist was gone; the car was now half a mile further along the road. Elaine’s first impressions were not until it had traveled another half mile.

One of the children was still awake, and the other two still asleep. When they reached home, they found that the time was not about 2200, as it should have been, but about 0100A. Three hours had somehow been lost.

After this, numerous odd things happened to the family, among them a nervous breakdown before Christmas that forced John to give up his job; also, John, Elaine, and two of the children all gave up eating meat, and John and Elaine gave up drinking alcohol. John, a heavy smoker, gave up smoking completely. There have been disappearances of articles in the house, a loud droning noise frequently heard after midnight, and clicking noises heard in the living room and bedroom, with other phenomena. The telephone acted peculiarly, etc.

On one occasion one of the children claimed he saw a “man” standing beside his bed dressed “like a clown.”

John had seen a UFO on a highway in 1968, which had made the lights and engines of several cars fail, causing a collision to occur; also, just before or just after the green mist incident, he had seen by daylight a large cylindrical silver object pacing an aircraft. John had “odd dreams” from which he could remember being operated on, “or something similar,” by “gnomes;”

Elaine could remember a dream in which she was lying on an operating table, with a person of small stature in a white coat standing beside her. Later Elaine remembered John, herself and one of the children standing beside a car in a large room with curved walls. Walking around machinery were men in gray one-piece suits. Inside another room, containing the operating table, was “a small ugly looking person.”

Later while John was under hypnosis he remembered that as the car entered the mist, he found himself in a big room where tall “peaceful” beings, in one-piece colorless suits, told him not to worry about the children. They had pink eyes and communicated by telepathy. They put him on a table and ran a “honeycombed” bar like instrument, 10″ by 30″, over his body. He asked where they came from; they showed him “a map but not a map”, and gave an explanation of which he could remember only “Phobos.” They travel, he was told; almost instantaneously;” they explained how, but he could not understand.

A small being was present; it had fur like covering and made chirping sounds; it served the tall beings. In a second hypnotic session, John remembered that when the car entered the mist, a white beam cut through it, and lifted the car. The next thing he knew was that they were in a very large room. Here an “examiner,” “smaller than us,” with big eyes and a mouth “not like ours”, examined him. The tall beings had no visible mouths. Their propulsion system used a magnetic “vortex.” He encountered only 3 of these beings, and only one communicated with him. When asked the reason for the being’s visit to Earth, he replied, “No visit, they are here always.” Asked where they came from, he said, “There was no need for them to say,” and that they have no need to return home; “they have more than one base,” he said. After being brought out of hypnosis, he said that at this point he felt prevented from saying anything more.
