Early on the morning a couple finished working on their new house in the Robertís Hill district of Claremont, New Hampshire and were preparing to retire.
Some lights in the field back of the house, apparently about 200' away, attracted their attention and they went to the window to see what was going on.
To their astonishment, they saw a dome shaped object hovering about 10' off the ground. The underside of the object was illuminated, and the light covered an area about 20' in diameter on the ground.
Since they were in a fairly isolated area with no telephone, they had just moved into the house, the couple became frightened.
They could hear a buzzing sound, like a transformer, coming from the object. The time was about 2:30 a.m.
Mr. and Mrs. John Meloney of the New Hampshire NICAP Subcommittee investigated the report in close cooperation with the Claremont police. In their interview with the couple, they learned that the UFO had remained over the field until about 4:30 a.m.
Then the humming became very loud, the light grew to high intensity and the UFO moved away at a low angle upward to the west and disappeared.
In the garage, the family dog whined loudly as the UFO departed.
2 separate groups of witnesses have been located by the subcommittee.
The reports seem to indicate beyond a reasonable doubt that something unexplained was in the area.
