One evening in early January 1952 in the city of Oakdale a family was driving home to their farm. On their journey, they would witness a bright white light hovering over the road ahead. As it is was some way off in the distance, the family wouldn't pay the light much attention upon arriving home.
They would carry on with their evening before retiring to bed. However, later in the night, the entire family were woken from sleep by an intensely bright light that surrounded the entire house.
Then, the family's dogs suddenly became very quiet. As they peered out of the ground floor window, the family could see a little man like figure approaching their property. It came right up to the glass and knocked several times on the window.
The father of the family stepped a little closer. He could see the figure had a helmet with a visor on. However, he could clearly see strange large black eyes behind the face shield.
Even more disturbing, he would later state his belief that the eyes were merely a cover for the actual eyes that he could see blinking strangely behind these apparent lenses.
In a similar vein, the creature's skin appeared to be a flesh like uniform of sorts. This is a particularly interesting detail as many other accounts, some of them decades later, would state a similar assumption.
By this stage, the rest of the family had ventured into another room, now quite frightened. The creature turned away from the window and returned into the light, which itself died down suddenly and vanished.
