'Communion' Alien Being Encountered in Ellerslie, Maryland

A young boy, living in Ellerslie, Maryland, encountered an alien being that he later recognized as the same illustration on the Whitley Strieber's 'Communion' book cover.

The following account was posted on the MUFON CMS:

Ellerslie, Maryland - 11/1977: I grew up by the woods and at the age of around 6 years old, I had a terrifying experience. Many times I would accompany my mother to take our dogs for a walk in the woods. Around this age, I was fascinated with different TV programs and what I would describe as doing a witch laugh or cackling. I would do this "witch laugh" when we would walk in the woods because I was trying to master it to sound scary.

One day I was playing in my backyard with my brother when I began hearing a very hard knocking sound coming from the side of our house. I looked at the house and saw nothing and my brother continued playing. The sound hit the house again and I looked again and saw nothing. This horrendous loud sound (that I suppose only I could hear) hit the house again. For the third time, I heard the loud sound again. Except for this time I had this feeling to turn my head to the left facing our garage by the woods.

This is when I saw a grey like creature standing partly behind a tree right in front of our garage. It had would I described at that time "an upside-down onion head" with large slanted eyes, small mouth and nose. It then telepathically communicated my "witch laugh" into my head, but in a demonic sound.

My brother noticed something was wrong with me and asked me what was wrong, but I couldn't speak. I could hardly get my legs to move and if my brother wasn't there I don't think I could have moved at all due to fear. The fear it put into me was like nothing I have ever experienced in my life. It began laughing demonically in my head and doing the witch laugh. The sound filled my head and it was deafening.

Finally, I could scream and began to partly run, almost falling as I headed for the front door of our house. As I got to the door my mother came running asking what was wrong. I was hysterical crying and screaming realizing that this thing was pure evil. My parents asked my brother what happened, but he didn't know. I described to my parents what I saw and what it did to me. My parents decided to go out and investigate the tree and garage area, even though I begged them not to. They found nothing nor saw nothing and I never saw it again.

Many years later I came across a book that had the exact picture on it of the grey alien I had seen called 'Communion.' There on the front cover was the same face of the grey alien creature I had seen. After looking at the content of the book, I knew then that others had seen the same alien creature I had and that this was real. - MUFON
