This is a simple raw report (first-person account) of a close encounter (third kind / humanoid / alien contact) case. Several of the features in the report match closely with common features in other cases (and close encounter / contact cases), such as engine-stopping (vehicle interference), and humming sound of the UFO, as well as the general description of the UFO craft and its occupants (for example, see the Alfred Burtoo encounter, Herbert Schirmer abduction case, etc.).
Contact of the Third Kind in Georgia
Another sighting in the same area, several days after the contact case below:
12 July 1989. 0:01 AM. Okrokana, Georgia. Georgian Scientist Academy's Physician Institutes engineer Tamar Manasbpulo with her daughter, Rusudan Nutsubidze, saw a strange phenomenon:
A saucer shaped lighted object hung over Tbilisi approximately 400 meters in altitude, comparable to the TV tower's height. After 1 - 2 minutes a thin arrow of light came down. After 5 minutes on the TV tower lights turned off.
Letter from witness 'David D.' describing his encounter experience:
David D's letter:
"I want to tell you about a fact, which was repeated and told to us that in the universe may be another civilized planet. That happened in 1989 on 4th of July at the 9:30 p.m. In the Ortachala (place in Tbilisi, Georgia) I took a girl I knew and drove her home. At the Davitashvili Street near the restaurant "Samadlo" I saw that the water in the engine was boiling. I stopped the car and went to get water. When I came back the girl wasn't in the car. I don't remember if I filled the radiator or not. I turned on the car and drove ahead onto the "Mtacminda" park. As a rule I drive that way home. In the "Mtacminda" road I saw a woman, which was trying to stop my car. I can't decide to stop or not and after driving 15 meters further I looked back in the mirror and the woman wasn't there.
I continued on my way. I stopped the car near "Mtacminda" park and went into restaurant to see my friend but he wasn't there. On that day I didn't have any plan to see him. After 500 meter, when I drive back, my car engine suddenly stopped. I don't remember my car ever doing this since I have had it. I got out from car and rolled it back. At that time I felt that some kind of invisible field was operating on me and was taking me somewhere. The road was dark. I was walking approximately 200 meter, when I saw a "Flying Saucer". It was standing to the left of me and has three legs. All around it were colored lights. At the bottom were stairs and illuminated windows. From the "Saucer" 15-20 meters away were standing four figures. They were 2.5 – 3 meters in height. I wasn't scared, maybe because that hypnosis like force, which was taking me to that place, kept me from being scared. They also were not afraid when they saw me. One of them came close to me and tried to establish contact. I was trying to understand. First he was talking in this strange language. Next he started talking in Russian. He asked how old am I? I answered. Next he told me that they aren't the first here and they will come again. He told me - we come when it is a necessity. He said that we are undeveloped and that we have simple primitive technology.
Next I felt behind me a warm, I turned and saw that one of them was measuring my height. Talking to only one of them. I put my hand on my watch and gave a sign that it was late and I am in a hurry. He asked - do you have a phone at home. I answered, I have, but how can I call from here: He went into "Saucer", walked up gangway where the light was coming from. When he came back he held a strange apparatus. The device was lit up with different colored lights and strange signs - which was like hieroglyphs. I understand, that it was a phone and I dialed my home number. The voice that was coming from the apparatus and light, which lit up from the voice, understood me, that nobody was taking my phone call at home. Then he took the apparatus back without speaking. Afterwards he came back and told, that they want to take us (I don't understand, what they mean "us"), that they want to help that they aren't coming with a bad intention. I asked, what if I come with you, will you bring me back. He doesn't answer because on the small transmitter (In my mind, it was transmitter, all four had it on their breasts) was a lighted red colored bulb and I heard a low siren like voice. When he heard that signal he went into the "Saucer" and took me with him.
Inside the saucer I saw TV-like apparatus. I saw all of my body. The picture was color and clearer than on an X-ray set. I saw how my heart worked, my stomach and other organs. At that time my interrogator came back. He told me that I was free and I can go home. I said my car isn't working. He calmed me and said don't worry, car will be OK. I came back and sat in the car I saw how UFO pushes stairs in and lift into the air. Approximately at 60 meters altitude it reduced speed and turned on its side and climbed into the air. I heard a low humming sound. The car started and I went to home. On 11 July at same place I saw a black spilled liquid, which has oil smell. I want to tell you that the liquid on the third day wasn't there. Consequently after our meeting they were there once more at the same spot and they stayed that time:"
