In the early morning of mid-December 2001, "David Smith" had gone deer hunting in southern Ohio. But what he encountered has haunted his life since. First was a bizarre noise, then a beam containing snow melt droplets rising into a ring-shaped craft with three long antennas. The ring craft, or dragonfly drone, began to spin rapidly in complete silence. The hunter found himself waking up on the ground ten hours later, the soles of his leather boots completely melted.
