Aarno Heinonen and Esko Viljo saw a bright light in the sky approaching them with a buzzing sound. A round 10-foot wide metallic object with a flat bottom, wrapped at first in a reddish gray mist, descended to within 10-12 feet of the ground, whereupon the buzzing ceased. It was so close to Heinonen that he could have touched it with his ski pole. From an opening in the center of the object’s bottom, a bright light beam was then emitted, creating an illuminated area of 3 feet in diameter on the snow beneath it, edged with black.
A red gray mist descended again. When it cleared both men could see, only 10 feet away, a 3-foot tall humanoid creature standing in the illuminated area, carrying in its hands a black box with a pulsating yellow light. The arms and legs were very thin, the face pale like wax, and the nose hooked; it wore a light green coverall with darker green knee boots, white gauntlets, and a conical metallic helmet. Then the mist again descended, and long red, green and purple “sparks” floated out from the lighted area. A sort of flame rose from this spot and entered the UFO; then the mist vanished, as did the UFO. After this experience, Heinonen found his right leg numb, vomited, and passed black urine; Viljo also suffered severe physiological effects. The former would claim, two years later, a series of contacts with a female spacewoman. According to Finnish researcher Tapani Koivula, Heinonen obtained psychic talents after the encounter and became a clairvoyant and healer. He died in the 90’s. Viljo is still living in the Imjarvi area but has remained very quiet about his experience.
