Summary:  The witness had been alerted by a phone call of a “UFO” in the area. As he drove around the town looking for the object there was a sudden power outage that affected the entire town. He then observed a soft glowing disc-shaped craft descend over a nearby drive-n theater. He left his car and proceeded on foot towards the object, ducking behind some hedges as the object briefly landed. The moment the object took off and right from the direction it had landed, a man and a woman appeared, these seemed normal and human like and were then seen entering a parked car, which drove quickly away.
