Close-range sighting of disc-shaped object with dome on top
Date: April 22, 1966
Location: Alliance, Ohio, United States

"When it was within an estimated 40 feet, over the open practice area of the golf course, the UFO stopped (cf. Damon, Texas). It appeared to be at telephone pole height and about 45 feet in diameter, and encircling the rim was a row of red lights like a "rotating neon sign." The white light, much brighter than the red, was seen to be coming from a dome atop the structure."

During a series of sightings on the night of April 21/22, in the area of Alliance, Ohio, a music teacher and his wife had a close-range observation of a UFO shaped like a giant disc with a dome on top.

Mr. and Mrs. Edward Vojtko were driving home from a late teachers' meeting, traveling north on McCallum Avenue and were approaching the Tannenhauf golf course, about 5 miles west of Alliance. About 12:15 a.m. (EST), Mr. Vojtko noticed a brilliant stationary red light due west just above the horizon. He slowed the car, then stopped about 100 yards south of the golf course clubhouse. When he rolled down the car window to take a better look, he noticed that the light had begun to move toward them. The object lost its star-like appearance as it rapidly approached, taking on the shape of a dark disc with a white light on top.

When it was within an estimated 40 feet over the open practice area of the golf course, the UFO stopped (cf. Damon, Texas). It appeared to be at telephone pole height and about 45 feet in diameter, and encircling the rim was a row of red lights like a "rotating neon sign." The white light, much brighter than the red, was seen to be coming from a dome atop the structure. As the object appeared to hover, the badly frightened couple panicked and fled the scene at high speed. Both had the feeling that the UFO was following them, but they could see nothing behind them as they fled. Finally, about a mile from the golf course, they saw the object at a higher elevation, accelerating toward the northeast. It appeared to come from directly above their car - a possibility that had not occurred to them until then. Finally, it passed over a house to their right (east) and disappeared behind trees in the distance.

The only physical sensation experienced by the witnesses was a ringing sensation in their ears and a light-headedness which they felt when they got home. Mr. Vojtko felt it was due to the rough high-speed ride and the psychological strain. Both said they had an uneasy feeling prior to the final sighting, as if someone were trying to communicate with them. This, too, could have been a psychological reaction. NICAP member David Webb investigated the report and interviewed the witnesses, whom he considers sincere and reliable.
