Several witnesses, including Howard Schachter, reported seeing unusual ground-based light sources, such as purple flashes, red dots, and blurry white balls. 

Later, a sudden heat wave drew four witnesses to the side of the road near a wooded hillside. Then they saw an emerald green oval small flash near the top of the hill; they approached the nearest tree, seeing a white flashing light over the road. 

Suddenly, they all felt a strong yet gentle presence in front of the tree, it seemed feminine in nature, it seemed to be about three feet (0.9 m) tall, elven in nature. 

It was never fully three dimensional: the creature could be seen in flashes and outlines of emerald green. The body appeared thin; another observer said it looked like a hologram. The other two briefly saw the figure's head swaying from side to side, with a large wrapper around its eyes. 

Other witnesses came to the scene, feeling a surge of unknown energy pulling them up the hill. One of the people present tried to mentally contact the figure and asked it to stretch out its right hand, apparently the creature did just that. 

He soon left the area. All six witnesses reported feeling the effects to varying degrees.
