 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 December 4

1949 - A 23-year-old man named Restier was driving home from Barra Mansa to Volta Redonda, Brazil at around 5:00 a.m. when he saw a 15-meter diameter disc land near the highway. Two beings came out, who looked human and were 1.65 meters tall but acted robotic in many ways. He claimed he went with them on an otherworld journey, during which he was put into a tub of liquid for the duration. After what seemed like three days he was returned, but the elapsed time had actually been four months (the return date was April 14th, 1950). (Sources: David F.

Bullard, UFO Abductions: The Measure of a Mystery, case 157) .

1952 - At 8:48 p.m. an F-51 pilot, Lt. Robert O. Arnold, flying out of the Laredo, Texas Air Force Base chased a glowing bluish-white object that made extremely tight turns. He had a near collision with the lighted object when it made a head-on pass at his plane. The UFO flew at extreme speeds, and there was a possible crash and subsequent retrieval of the UFO. The incident lasted seven minutes. (Sources: Donald E. Keyhoe, Flying Saucer Conspiracy, p. 42; UNICAT database, case 754; Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A History. 1952: November-December, p. 53; Richard Dolan, UFO's and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up 1941-1973, p. 404; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 19).

1954 - On this night a waiter saw a circular object in a pasture in Caselle di Nogara, Italy. It remained stationary for several minutes, and was about 50 meters away. It was blue with symmetrical openings which emitted a bright red light. The witness got a rifle and fired twice at a very tall figure that emerged from the turret on the craft. Immediately, a very strong wind was felt and the craft took off amidst a reddish glow. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1954-137, citing Vallee).)

1954 - At six o'clock in the morning in the city of Coronel Pringles, Argentina Sr. E. Aguirre Zavala, an employee of a commercial firm, observed a very bright disc come down to just 20 inches above the ground, where it remained suspended. In the middle of this disc there moved about a strange looking figure, which seemed to be a dwarf with an enormous head. The UFO rose up shortly afterward after emitting a very bright light. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1954-136, citing a newspaper source).

1966 - At the Gallipolis, Ohio airport in the middle of the afternoon five pilots saw what at first appeared to be an airplane. Instead it was a flying humanoid. It was a winged figure about 300 feet up in the sky, and flying at 70 mph without flapping its wide wings. The creature had a long neck and was turning its head from side to side as it flew. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1966-70, citing John A. Keel, The Mothman Prophesies, p. 77).

1970 - In the middle of the afternoon a lens-shaped cloud quickly encircled a private plane flying from the islands of Bimini to Andros in the Bahamas. Inside the cloud was a glowing circular tunnel that extended vertically upward. Both of the passengers experienced a sensation of weightlessness during the experience. A green mist surrounded the plane when it finally broke free, and the plane had been moved much closer to Palm Beach, Florida. (Sources: Center for UFO Studies files, letter from B. Gernon; Jenny Randles, Time Storms: Amazing Evidence for Time Warps, Space Rifts, and Time Travel, p. 53).

1971 - At 10:30 p.m. an extremely bright, luminous disc hovered and spun over the city of Campinas, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. It was seen by hundreds as it passed over the town at low altitude. (Source: Gordon Creighton, FSR Case Histories, August 1972, p. 13, citing a newspaper clipping).

1972 - A pilot and his friend saw a white light hover over Waltham, Massachusetts, and then make rapid V-shaped descents and ascents. When it approached the witnesses, they were able to see that it was pancake shaped, covered with lights, and had a central dome on top. They also heard a humming sound. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 359).

Waltham, Massachusetts - 1972


1975 - On this evening a man was alone in his leather shop in Arizona when two human looking beings entered. One was male and the other female. He had seen the male before. They were both nearly human in appearance, except they had yellow colored eyes, high cheeks, flat noses, and wide thin mouths. The man was also bald, and the woman appeared to be wearing a wig. While the man was over 6 feet tall, the woman was somewhat shorter. Their skin seemed translucent it was so pale, and their fingers were exceptionally long, especially the middle one, but their legs were unusually short. Feeling strangely unable to resist them, he went with them into his back room and undressed. The woman went over his body with a small metallic device, then undressed and had sexual intercourse with the witness, making animal sounds during the process. At one point he was told by the beings that they had lost the will to resist evil, so they needed to interbreed with humans. (Source: letter in CUFOS dated March 11, 1978; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # A1629; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1975, case # 2231, citing B. Ann Slate & William McCall).

1978 - On this night a woman named Isabel D. saw a brightly illuminated blue-greenish rail in her backyard in Mendoza, Argentina. When she stepped on it she felt intense cold, but at the same time it was like she was in an intense energetic state. She then saw two figures of milky white color. She fell into her swimming pool, and bruised her left ear, eye, and waist. When she recovered she found her left eye bruised and violet rectangular marks behind her left ear and on her waist.

Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing John Schuessler, UFO Related Human Physiological Effects; Jane Thomas, UFO Newsclipping Service, November 1979, p. 11, citing Radiolandia, September 21, 1979).

1979 - Lilli Karlsson, a young woman, was taking a walk about an hour after midnight in the Brevik Hills of Vastervik, Sweden when she suddenly became paralyzed and unable to move. Nearby, she could see a luminous object hovering close to the ground. Two five-foot tall thin humanoids appeared from behind the object. She heard them talking in an unintelligible language, and she believed that they were discussing her. She also heard a voice that told her not to be afraid. One of the beings approached and stretched out its hand to her, but she remained paralyzed. They continued to talk between themselves as they walked back to their craft. A thin cloud of smoke came from under the object and enveloped the object, causing it to disappear. When the craft was gone the paralysis went away. (Sources: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A2229; FSR, January 1981, p. 6, citing Vasterviks Times, September 22, 1980; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1979, case #324, citing Robert E. Bartholomew, UFO Lore).

1988 - A man was stopped at a traffic light at 2:00 a.m. in Carmel, Indiana in suburban Indianapolis when he saw a silent bright light approach, zig-zag, move away, return, then go out of sight. The fuses in his car were blown during the incident. (Source: MUFON UFO Field Investigation Database, case 900815, field investigator Francis L. Ridge).

1988 - At 5:25 a.m. in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania a 23-year-old corrections officer was driving, then saw a 75-foot diameter silvery oval disc with blinding white lights near some power lines. The object manuevered, hovered, and made a humming sound. The UFO emitted a silvery white trail when it flew away, departing by shooting straight up into the sky. The officer saw another automobile nearby; inside was another witness who appeared terrified and disoriented, and a possible abductee. Potassium cloride dust was found on the cars, and the two witnessed experienced burns on their faces and blurred vision. (Sources: Leslie, Varnicle, MUFON UFO Journal, May 1989, p. 10; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 31, 176, 272; MUFON UFO Field Investigation Database, case 890104, field investigator Stan Gordon).

1990 -  In Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil a silent reddish orange ball of light three meters in diameter was watched by three men in a truck at 7:30 p.m. It zig-zagged as it rose, then changed shape to an oval only one meter in diameter.

1991 - After experiencing persistent trouble with his farm vehicle, a 65-year-old farmer living in Bekes, Hungary was doing chores on the farm around noon when he heard noises coming from the pig sty. He went to check and suddenly felt a powerful odor and suffocating heat, and he passed out. When he recovered 45 minutes later he was sitting inside in his work chair. He left the room and heard a buzzing sound in his head and then began seeing black rings in front of his eyes. The rings turned into a red sphere. He felt forced to follow it. He began doing odd chores around the house and as he did so everything felt lightheaded and every time he touched something he received an electric shock. The red sphere followed him where ever he went. At four p.m. he went back to feed the pigs and when he was finished he turned around and saw a human-shaped, greenish figure standing in front of a door. The figure was of normal height and bright green in color. The farmer walked back to his house, noticing that all the farm animals were acting agitated. He went to bed, but moments later the black rings and the red sphere returned. Later that night he went back out into the yard and again came face to face with the greenish figure. After a few minutes the being rose into the air, leaving behind a V-shaped trail that became fog-like and disappeared. He heard a booming voice say, three times, "I will come back!" (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1991, case # 331, citing Gabor Tarcali, Hungarian UFO Network).

1992 - In the suburbs of Winston Salem, North Carolina an adult watched a child walk to the school bus stop at 8:05 a.m. Beyond the woods and above some houses she saw a multi-colored domed disc-shaped object, perhaps 16-20 feet in diameter, moving in the sky. It made a humming noise. It appeared to hide beyond the furthest house, then hover over the house, and approached to within 75 feet of the child. The indicent lasted about five minutes. (Source: MUFON field investigation database, case 920202E, field investigator Barbara Thompson; UFO Newsclipping Service, March 1993).

1995 - A husband and wife in Manchester, England woke up late in the night to the sound of their young daughter crying hysterically. They tried to move but found themselves paralyzed. At that moment the bedroom curtains lit up brightly and there was a whooshing sound from outside. The husband was eventually able to move and got up to look out the bedroom window. He saw a glowing object on the road, surrounded by a number of men wearing boiler suit coveralls who appeared to be digging up the garden. When they were both able to move they went to check on their daughter and found that she was alright. They then went back to sleep. The next morning there was no evidence of any digging having occurred in their garden. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1995, case # 3451, citing Peter Hough & Moyshe Kalman, The Truth About UFO Abductions).

2004 -  Orange flashes in the sky in Burlington, Indiana were followed by the appearance of several objects at 8:30 p.m. One object that flew over the witness was triangular in shape with three red illuminated areas like tips. The outer points were brightest, fading into black at the center. The color was like a piece of red hot metal. (Source: UFO Magazine (USA), February 2005, p. 72, citing National UFO Reporting Center).

2006 -  A multicolored object was sighted over Hicksville, New York in Nassau County at 12:25 p.m. It made security alarms go off and left behind a cloud of bluish fog. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, December 2006 webpage, p. 7).
