Ellen and Laura Ryerson where two teenage girls, Ellen 16 years-old and Laura 13 years-old, who had an encounter with what is believed to have been aliens at their job on a bean farm on August 13, 1965, in Kent, Washington. The girls' father was also a witness to the beginning of the events but did not get a good look at the beings as he saw them from a distance.
Shortly before 7:00 AM on August 13, 1965, the girls' father dropped them off at the farm. Mr. Ryerson noticed two strange figures in the distance and reportedly thought to himself that it was strange that other workers were there at this time. The girls exited the vehicle and began to walk to the farm. The girls saw the figures and became frightened as they neared them as their features became more apparent. Two beings were short while the third being was taller, approximately 5ft 2. The smaller beings were dressed in white and a garment that resembled a v-neck, purple sport jersey. The taller being was dressed in some type of shiny or metallic cloth. The beings had large heads, grey skin, and protruding "frog-like" eyes. The taller of the three beings had a very strange, "veiny" head that throbbed or pulsated. Additionally, the taller being had something in his mouth that the girls thought was a whistle as it seem to make shrill noises. The beings noticed the girls and the girls noticed that the beings noticed them. The girls panicked and fled. Instead of giving chase the beings disappeared.
