Many of us who are interested in the UFO mystery are always asked by those who are skeptical, "If UFOs exist, where is the proof?" Well...that depends, on what you are looking for. No, there has not been a public landing yet, at least not one that can be confirmed with more than just personal reports, but there have been a number of incidents where a low flying UFO left trace evidence. Does any of this evidence still exist today? The answer is Yes. If you believe the eyewitness testimony of Sheriff Deputy Val Johnson. Johnson had an extremely close encounter with something very unusual in August, 1979 in Marshall County, Minnesota. He was patrolling on Highway 220, when a flash of light, seemingly out of nowhere, came down on him and his car. After a few minutes, he lost consciousness. Johnson was aware of nothing for about 30-40 minutes. When he came to, the damage had been done, to his eyes, and his patrol car. This car, damage and all, is now housed in the Marshall County Historical Museum.

gives you the whole story. The damages to the car include a broken headlight, a dent in the hood, a hole in the windshield, and even the antenna is bent at a 45 degree angle. The director of the Museum, Ethel Thorlacius, states that, "It's become the county "UFO car," and "I believe that there was something outside that car that was responsible for the damage." She also tells us that the car's damage is very unique, and looks as if it was rolled over by something. The "UFO Car" brings in more than its share of visitors, and is a great conversation piece. Even the History Channel has seen the one of a kind vehicle, and it may get its 15 minutes of fame in a future special. There are many explanations given for what really happened that night so long ago. One of the most acceptable ones is a UFO.
