The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
The witness saw green light, unlike any seen before, filling the bedroom and looked out the window. something masked by the bright green light rose up either from or above the snow, which was 2 feet deep. witness called uncle the next morning, who with his best friend raced to the site before anyone else could get there. they observed penetrating cylinder shapes [circular holes] in the snow. at the bottom of each such hole was a fragile cylinder ash-like shape, with holes throughout the ash cylinder. broke a piece off, placed it promptly in a jar with tissue [and foil] to protect it.
