Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1948 – A silent green fireball flew over Bernal, New Mexico toward the west for 2.2 seconds at a low altitude, then ascended. It was seen by Dr. La Paz, a meteor expert who later prepared a report on these anomalous green fireballs. He concluded that what he saw was not a meteor.

In 1955 there were three UFO reports from London, Hertfordshire, and West Sussex, England. At 6:45 a.m. an observer in the Beckenham neighborhood of London felt the urge to look up, and then watched a golden colored disc streak across the sky. At 4:40 p.m. a bright silver disc curved down and then flew back up into the clouds over Hitchin, England. It then shot away to the southwest very fast. Twenty minutes later a 25-foot wide golden disc streaked across the sky in Horsham, England heading toward the south. It flew at an estimated altitude of 2500 feet and vanished quickly from sight.

1967 – A woman, Mrs. Rita Malley, was driving down a rural road in North Lansing, New York with her infant daughter when she noticed that she was being followed by a multi-colored, domed disc-shaped object. The saucer hovered directly over her car, a Ford Mustang, and the engine stalled. At the same time she heard a weird chorus of voices informing her of the approaching death of a friend.

1968 – On this evening at 18:04 p.m. in Franois, France nine witnesses saw strange figures moving around in front of a light on the ground alongside the highway as they drove by. The light source wasn’t there when they checked back later. (Source: J. Tyrode, FSR Case Histories, December 1970, p. 7, citing LDLN).
In 1972 in Huaco, San Juan Province, Argentina four men watched three glowing red, oval-shaped objects zigzag over the Rio Huaco valley, heading toward the east. (Source: Oscar A. Calindez, Stendek, March 6, 1978).
1973 - At 9:15 a.m. the witness was alone at home with her young daughter and had just stepped out onto her patio in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico when she saw a bright oval-shaped craft hovering at a high altitude overhead. It appeared to be rocking back and forth. She went back inside the house and she next heard a loud humming sound, which stopped for a few moments, then started again. She then saw through her kitchen window a strange being standing 15 feet away. He was of normal height, but wore a bright, tight-fitting uniform and a black helmet. His skin was reddish bronze in color and he seemed not to have a mouth or a nose. His eyes were two round holes that stared at the witness intensely. A yellowish beam of light illuminated the man from an unknown source in the sky. The witness felt like she going into a trance, and began receiving telepathic messages from the being. At one point she felt compelled to go to the front of the house, where she saw a floating box about three inches long and very shiny, it seemed to have had a calming effect on her. After the incident she went into a fit of hysterics. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1973, case # 271, citing Robiou Lamarche, Manifesto OVNI En Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo Y Cuba).
1976 – On this morning around 7:20 a.m. at a factory in Meylan, France Mr. Hermann, a 38-year-old security guard, saw a 5.5' tall luminous green human form appear about 20 meters away from him. It stood in the center of a circular orange-yellow spot. It seemed to be wearing a helmet. Mr. Hermann’s neck muscles were paralyzed, but he was able to run outside. When he returned it was gone. (Source: Edmond Thomas, Ouranos, October 1977, p. 11; David Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1649).
1978 - Ms. Adele Holzer was in her car driving to work at 8 a.m. when she saw a hemispherical white disc in Burghausen, Bavaria, Germany. More puzzled than afraid, she pulled off to the side of the road, and saw a "row of shining green ports along its periphery." Then, she thought to herself, "If I could only see its bottom," and it suddenly turned exposing the underneath. She said there were three spheres on its bottom surface, the middle one being larger. It possessed a bright orange spot at its center. As the UFO hovered over some nearby trees, six beams of green light shot from it and she felt slightly paralyzed by one of them. She lost track of time as the object hovered over her. When the light beams went out the object rose silently up into the sky. Her watch had stopped at 08:01 a.m. and her car's ignition key, that she believed had been in her hand the entire time, was bent. She later told investigators she felt "somebody was trying to get into telepathic contact with her." She claimed to have been given a message saying that they had friendly intentions and wanted to stop us from destroying the Earth. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Michael Hessemann).
1978 – At 10:15 p.m. a motorist in Marzocca, in the Tuscany region of Italy, experienced engine failure, the lights of his car died, and the car’s cassette tape player stopped working. He then saw a luminous flying object that emitted a beam of light onto his car. When the object departed the car’s lights came back on and the tape deck resumed playing. On the same night a photograph of a domed disc with a neon glow was taken near an oil field by a Dubai government official in the United Arab Emirates.

1978 - At 11:45 p.m. Alfonso Marinelli was traveling in his new Mercedez near Navelli, in the Abruzzi region of Italy when his engine suddenly quit. He then noted two bright lights approaching slowly in his direction. As the lights approached Marinelli was able to make out two short human-like figures. The figures wore silvery suits, resembling those of astronauts. The suits were luminous, and both figures wore huge oval-shaped helmets. The front of the helmets had black visors. Over the chest the figures had what appeared to be straps with a bright round light on the center. The figures rose off the ground to a height about 90 cm and in flew over the witness vehicle, quickly disappearing from sight. Marinelli was soon able to start his car's engine and drove away from the area. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Archivio S.U.F.).
1979 – At 11:45 p.m. a multi-colored disc passed by fast a residential neighborhood in Romans, France at a low altitude, spinning as it went. It left behind a luminous trail. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, February 1980).
1983 – A triangular flying object was sighted over Byron, Illinois by three men. It moved erratically and made no sound. It had blinking red and white lights. Its erratic path was detected on FAA radar at the Greater Rockford, Illinois airport. (Source: APRO Bulletin, September 1984, p. 8).
1987 – On this day six odd looking humanoid beings were sighted on the ground near a nuclear power plant in Malvezi, France in a restricted area. They were overheard speaking in an unintelligible language. They flew away on flying sleds. Later that night United Airlines flight 1405 reported that two UFOs, each with two rows of lights, approached the airliner at a rapid speed 50 miles east of Fort Wayne, Indiana. (Sources: FSR, December 1988, p. 22; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 45).
In 1988 four people on a lonely road in Wisbech, England were buzzed by a disc-shaped UFO at around 7:40 p.m. Many police cars and helicopters were seen combing the nearby fields later that night. (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1990, p. 31).
1993 – In North Somercotes, Lincolnshire, England at 4:30 p.m. many people reported sighting several silent delta-shaped UFOs and lights hovering over nearby roads. Television sets reportedly changed channels without cause. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, March 1994).
1997 – At a sleepover in Lubbock, Texas, two girls reported that they saw flashing lights in their room at two o’clock in the morning, followed by the blankets being thrown off their bed. They saw a number of tall, thin figures that “spoke” to them, followed by an episode of missing time. When they awoke they found strange triangular marks on their bodies. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1997, case # 3575, citing NUFORC).
2001 – At 6:07 p.m. in Carlisle, England a retired military pilot saw a large, bright object in the western sky. It moved rapidly toward the east at a high speed. It was disc-shaped with a "teardop-shaped aura". He estimated it was moving at Mach 3 when it vanished abruptly. (Source: UFO Magazine (USA), April 2002, p. 21).
