When the aircraft came close to the cloud they appeared to fall down like leaves, only to rise again seconds later, as if their engines had been stopped momentarily.
Felt strong electrostatic charge as it passed and disappeared. Wings covered in electrical discharges.
"It lit up the air around it. It looked like a localized sunset, but in the center was a strange-looking flying object."
|Scientist opinion: Possibility the electrification of the plane was due to the close proximity of the UFO's propulsion system which ionized the atmosphere.|

A couple saw a bright flash in the sky. At the same time, their car engine died and the headlights failed.

David Simpson. One humanoid, glowing eyes, from oval UFO that landed near car, E-M effects on car.
The Case was investigated by the northern representative of the Tasmanian UFO Ivestigation Centre, and subsequently reported to Flying Saucer Review by. W. K. Roberts.
The car radio developed a high-pitched wine.
Mr. and Mrs W. claimed that the car radio was in perfect working order before the UFO sighting; afterwards, it was reported that it suffered from distortion. This, of course, is a common phenomenon in close encounters with UFOs.
At around 2:45 A.M. on January 12, 1975, George O'Barski was driving home through North Hudson Park, New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, when static filled his radio.

Object causes vehicle interference and physical effects on driver.
An Imperial Iranian Air Force F-4 jet fighter was sent aloft and managed to aim a Sidewinder AIM-19 air-to-air missile [AAMs] at the target before its electronic systems failed.
A classic case with vehicle interference and continued phenomena for several days, including massive animal reactions and deaths.
Egg-shaped object stationary next to cloud. Witness's car radio is overtaken by a clear, continuous beeping sound.
Car bathed in red light three times by an object emitting a whirling sound. CB radio interference and animal reaction. Witness was physically affected by the object as it heated up the interior of the vehicle.

Physical effects, vehicle interference and time distortion.
Rivo Faralli. Witness car stalled on road by red glowing domed disk; two occupants emerged from dome, floated around car, reentered object. Witness suffered eye irritation for two days.
A large disc-shaped UFO followed a Piper airplane from Cordoba to Resistensia, Argentina. It reportedly maneuvered at great speed, and changed color from silver to orange. The plane's compass oscillated between 0.5 and 270 degrees, and there were several other variations noted in other onboard instruments. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 51).
As the object became visible, a number of cars lost power.
Many witnesses reported a huge boomerang-shaped object hovering over the base, seeming to cause an electrical power blackout.
The officer also said that each time such objects were seen over the base, electrical and weapons systems failed.

Reportedly the object immobilized two cars, and was moving extremely swiftly and without noise.
When astronauts finally make it to Mars, they might arrive inside a ship protected by a giant bubble of magnetic energy, says National Geographic News.
One of the major hurdles for a human journey to Mars is that it would take months, during which a spaceship and its human occupants would be bombarded with solar radiation that would easily penetrate a metal hull. This radiation can cut through DNA like a knife, causing genetic damage, cancer, and other illnesses. Here on Earth, the planet's magnetic field and our atmosphere protect us from most of the sun's harmful radiation "Life might not have been possible on Earth without a magnetic field as this first line of defense," says British researcher Ruth Bamford. She and a group of scientist came up with the idea of surrounding the spaceship with a "magnetosphere" - a magnetic field a few hundred yards across, which would deflect the radiation. Bamford and her team tested their idea in the lab with a miniature model of a spaceship, and found their invisible deflector shield really could work. It's "like Star Trek coming to life," she says.
