On May 29, 1976, three (3) adult witnesses observed an extremely bright white light just South of Grass Lake at about a 50 degree angle above the Southern horizon. It did not move across the sky, rather it disappered and reappeared in a different part of the sky instantaneously. It disappeared/reappeared twice. There was no sound, no wind, approx. 22:00 hours PDT. The white light in the sky (UFO) emitted a triangular beam of light down to the ground like an extremely bright searchlight beam which lit up the entire mountainside like daytime for approx. 10 seconds.

When I tried to to “hide” from the view of the object, it would move to realign itself with my line-of-sight. I used a flashlight to send a Morse Code message to the object, but there was no response.

When last viewed, the object appeared to be descending to an altitude of 1000-2000 ft about 1 mile away.
