A British author has offered the most compelling argument yet that Minnesota’s most sensational case of UFO encounter may actually have involved a genuine run-in with a higher, trans-human form of intelligence.
We’re not talking about blundering aliens from another planet – but something even more strange.
The incident happened August 27, 1979, on a lonely in Marshall County near the small town of Stephen in extreme northwest Minnesota. Marshall County sheriff’s deputy Val Johnson was on routine patrol at 1:40 a.m. when he saw a bright light a short way off to the south at the intersection of County Highway 5 and State Highway 220.
It was too bright to be the headlight of another car. Johnson thought it might have been a downed airplane. He turned onto Highway 220 and drove toward the illuminated object. The light — which had been hovering a few feet above the ground — seemed to react to his presence. It suddenly jumped up and moved rapidly toward him.
It was a brilliant ball of “focused energy” about the size of a basketball. It covered the distance of about a mile and a half in just a couple seconds. It was on a collision course with Johnson – and indeed – it smashed right into the front of his police car!
Johnson immediately lost consciousness. About 30 minutes later he awoke feeling sluggish and disoriented. He realized his vehicle had skidded and stalled off the road. He also noticed that the front window of his squad car had sustained a large crack, as if hit by a fist-sized rock. Later it would be discovered that there were other points of damage to the car, including antennas that were bent over at 90 degrees, and dents and scratches on the hood.
Johnson also suffered from red puffy eyes, as if he had been exposed at close range to a welder’s torch. Eerily, there was also a “missing time” element to the event. Johnson was perplexed to discover that the clock in his squad car had lost 14 minutes of time – and the watch on his wrist had also lost exactly 14 minutes of time!

This strange encounter by a county cop on a lonely northern Minnesota road became an international sensation. UFO investigators from around the world investigated the case. Johnson enjoyed perhaps a bit more than 15 minutes of fame. He appeared on the popular national ABC television show “That’s Incredible,” and other venues. His story has appeared in dozens of UFO books and articles.
While “believer” UFO buffs embrace the Johnson case as a certified encounter with some kind of alien spacecraft, hard-core skeptics believe they have a perfect explanation about what happened that night.
Scientists said the brilliant ball of light-energy that collided with Johnson’s squad car was a natural plasma formation – the kind which can be generated by enormous pressures generated by grinding geologic fault lines beneath the surface of the earth.
Indeed, that natural rock formations can generate bright and powerful plasma energy orbs has even been recreated in a laboratory setting. An analysis of the underlying area where the incident occurred would seem to support the proper geologic conditions. All things considered, this seems to be the best, most rational explanation of what happened to officer Val Johnson back in 1979.
But enter veteran British UFO researcher Andrew Collins. In his just released book “LightQuest,” Collins zeroes in on the phenomenon of natural plasma light ball formations as something that is actually both natural and evidence of the presence of higher, non-human or trans-human forms of intelligence.
Collins makes a compelling case that most of the high-profile cases of UFO sightings – and even abductions – can be tied to the natural formation of earth-generated plasma globes. But he goes further in suggesting that all this is “not so natural’ — or at least not so mundane.
His bold suggestion is that these plasma orbs may act as a temporary “host” to higher forms of intelligent beings that are not from outer space – but from right here on earth – ancient “spirit beings” or higher-dimensional lifeforms that have co-evolved along with humans here on earth for uncounted millennia.
In LightQuest, Collins shows how encounters with luminous light phenomenon have been associated with supernatural encounters with strange beings for centuries – from the thousands of reports of sightings of fairies, gnomes, dwarfs and “little people” in rural England, to the famous Marfa lights of Texas, to the well-known and frequent sightings of globe lights on the Yikama Reservation in Washington state — the latter is near where pilot Kenneth Arnold spotted a squadron of UFOs flying in formation in 1947, kicking off the modern UFO era and giving rise to the term “flying saucer.”
Trans-human entities inhabiting natural plasma formations certainly sounds far-fetched, but Collins makes an extremely compelling – and scientific — case of how it all can come together. he also explains how glowing orbs of light can seem to appear as strange entities, including bug-eyed aliens, the classic “Grays” of abduction fame, and all other manner of aliens reported by abductees.
Collins shows evidence that helix-like formations, similar to DNA, have been observed and recorded within the interior of plasma lights. He also lays out a theory at how the phenomenon of quantum entanglement can create a connection between the mind of human beings and “The Others.” Additionally, he builds his case by using the models of the famous physicist David Bohm, who in his book, “Wholeness and the Implicate Order” suggests that there is a larger “invisible” frame work of “higher dimension” which engulfs the normal 3-D world we see as our every day, normal “reality.”
The case of Val Johnson has always been of special interest to me since these events occurred just a few miles from my home here in Kittson County, and also because Mr. Johnson’s mother-in-law was my next door neighbor when I was growing up in Greenbush, Minnesota.
The interesting thing I found upon reading Collins’ book is that many other aspects of the Val Johnson case – such as the missing time aspect and the apparent “intelligently” directed action of the plasma orb – can be better explained if one takes into account the broader theory as outlined in LightQuest – as bold and difficult as it is to believe.
