A UFO Encounter of the third kind……Summer 1950

…….John Foster……12-11-15

UFO craft, strange lights, a mysterious voice and three small beings interact intermittently with a crowd of thirty to fifty for two hours or more…..Summertime, possibly August, 1950

A classic “abduction” of four or five people.

Below are drawings with short comments depicting strange happenings one evening at the Bethany Grade School Playground when a crowd of thirty to fifty people were waiting for an outdoor movie to began. The movie was sponsored through the City Recreation Department and the Cooper Theater. The theater was located in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska.

2, Beth Grd Sch plygd, light cluster, object shining spotlighWhen the crowd discovered the lights were a craft shooting spotlights to the ground, about one and a half blocks away




2, Beth Grd Sch plygd, object hovering over trees, SEWhen the craft approached the crowd and mesmerized us. Some of us were seemingly parallelized. A strange air around the craft seemed to fluctuate.






2, Beth Gr Sch plygrd, three small human-like men at saucer,Seeing three small beings get out of the windowed saucer and work on the ground. The saucer had landed in an empty lot just across the street from the playground…and the crowd eventually lined up along the street on this side to observe what was happening.



2, Beth Grd Sch plygd, illuminated saucer shooting over treesEventually the craft illuminated brilliantly, then zoomed in over the trees and hovered above us.







2, Beth Grd Sch plygd, saucer hovering 15 ft above crowdThe windowed saucer quit shinning brilliantly, then floundered down to about 15 to 20 feet above the crowd, where it hovered. A semi loud rich male voice, speaking in perfect English, then encouraged all to gather under the saucer, etc. He said 5 or 6 of us would be levitated up to the saucer and those of us chosen would experience an examination. He said we should not be frightened because they could make us forget if that was what we wished.



2, Beth Grd Sch plygd, crowd frozenThe craft then rose higher above us and it once again illuminated brilliantly. Our small group looked at the crowd and they all seemed frozen or parallelized. Our group was about 40 feet away, unaffected.






This was and still is the most frightening time of my life. After at least three others were separately levitated up and returned, I was slowly manipulated through various actions by what seemed to be a human guide until he and I arrived in the center of the windowed saucer.

2, Beth Gr Sch plygd, me on examination table in saucerI was then placed on what seemed to be a doctor’s examination table and several other unbelievable things occurred. This drawing is my view as I laid on the examination table.






2, Beth Gr Sch plygd, saucer stops car on Cotner BlvdI eventually was returned to the ground and the windowed saucer eventually left. Yet, I strongly felt I should run to Cotner Boulevard, which I did.  I stopped in the middle of the street (just in front of McCartney’s Garage). I turned toward the East and saw the windowed saucer approaching me. After several strange moves, it mysteriously stopped this car and hovered above it for a time. The car’s headlights stopped shinning.

The windowed saucer eventually left by way of flying and floating just above the tree tops, to the west, zig zagging right and left down Holdredge Street.

You can find a lengthy detailed narration of this Bethany Grade School Playground Encounter in Chapter Two of the book Eminent Discovery.


About jafos

I am a 75 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields...home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, author. Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood...but I really couldn't understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me and them I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 30 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I now can offer you three books and a website (http://www.johnfosterufos.com) to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs.
