Two New Hampshire teenagers sitting in a parked car were approached by a black-colored UFO in Laconia on March 20, 2010, lifted into the air and then dropped back onto pavement 180 feet away, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.
MUFON New England State Director Steve Firmani confirmed his investigation of the case today by telephone and said witness interviews had been completed.
The 18-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy both offer testimony about their encounter.
The two used the girl’s mother’s car and went to a Laconia destination that has not been released.
“We were just sitting there and I looked up at the moon,” the female witness stated. “I saw this weird black-shaped object. And then, I said to my boyfriend, ‘What was that?’”
Both accounts describe the same events. They saw an object coming toward them from the sky and began to panic. When they attempted to drive away, the car they were operating was lifted up off the ground. Both describe an odd smell during the incident.
When the car hit the pavement 180 feet away, the windshield cracked and the air bags deployed.
Firmani said there was no damage to the body of the car, but that there was about $5,000 damage to the underside of the car.
The male witness descibed the UFO.
“I don’t know how to explain this but it turns into a ball when it wants to slow down and move around quickly and when it wants to go fast, straight, it turns into a flat plate with maze box-shaped lined lights. These were on all the time.”
He describes attempting to drive away.
“The front end got picked up and the car could not move. We steered left and right but the car just kept on going up into the air.”
When the car hit the ground, they drove quickly away to the girl’s home where her mother called the police.
Firmani said there were three-inch divets in the curbing at the impact point where the car hit the ground. He said further study would be made to the under carriage body parts, which MUFON has retained from the body shop.
