1991 - The 21-year-old witness in Bekes, Hungary had heard a very loud voice in his room on the night of December 4, 2001, telling him "you will meet us soon." This was repeated for 11 nights in a row. He could not locate the source of the voice. On this night he was returning home from the movies when he caught sight of a hovering shiny gray disc-shaped object over the courtyard. He was suddenly compelled to walk under the object and a beam of light descended on him from the bottom of the craft, and he was apparently brought up inside the beam. He found himself inside the object looking out a window at his courtyard. Two four-and-a-half-foot tall beings stood in the room with him. The beings were human-like except they had large heads and eyes. They had long arms ending in hands with three digits. One of the beings communicated with the witness telling him that they had been watching him for three years and that they travel via inter-dimensional portals. A beam of green light hit the witness on his forehead and after that he only had vague memories of traveling to a moon-like planet and of seeing pyramids from above. He later found himself in his courtyard suffering from a terrible headache and feeling dizzy. (Sources: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 326; Albert S.

He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated. He also recalled that the beings had only three fingers on each hand. (Source: Albert S.
