1954 – After seeing mysterious lights descend over Sumner,
Washington five witnesses drove on this evening to an isolated area
near some power lines and soon saw a white glowing ball of light wobbling
and gliding down from the sky. It apparently went into a clump of nearby
trees. The light then approached their vehicle, and moments later the
white globe of light passed in front of their car. At that same moment one
of the witnesses saw a tall, well-built, broad-shouldered man standing at
the same spot where the globe of light had been seen. The figure was
encased in a glowing white light. It suddenly disappeared in plain sight.

several photographs before fleeing the area. The pictures only vaguely
show what appears to be the glowing eyes. (Source: Albert S. Rosales,
