This account was sent to us by filmmaker and close encounter witness Steve Neill. It was given to him by a friend of his who is very ill with cancer and has not long to live. It is, in other words, a deathbed account of a truly remarkable experience. The author is, of course, beyond any possible motivation to lie or invent stories at this point in his life. We would like to thank him for his story, and Steve for sharing it with us. To honor the struggle that was involved in writing this, we are publishing it unedited, just as he wrote it.
This is the story:
