 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 February 1

1897 - A large glaring light circled for a few minutes in the sky over Hastings, Nebraska at 9:30 p.m. It then descended to an altitude of 200 feet, traveled at a remarkable speed, slowed, and again circled for 15 more minutes. Finally, it descended once more and disappeared mysteriously. (Source: Philip L. Rife, It Didn't Start with Roswell, p. 3).

1948 - At shortly after two a.m. in Circleville, Ohio a Mr. Stevenson, a hog farmer, witnessed an 18 meter in diameter domed disc that hovered six meters above his hog barn, then flew over a shed. (Source: Ed McCann, Circleville Herald, August 3, 1952).

1954 - Two bright white objects approached a cosmic ray research balloon over Tuscaloosa, Alabama at 2:00 p.m. It was witnessed by several scientists from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and one of them named Baumgartner took some photographs. The first two objects were joined by four others. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 22; Richard F. Haines, Project Delta: A Study of Multiple UFO, p. 152, citing Loren Gross).

1958 - A huge luminous disc hovered for more than 30 minutes over farm country in Ladapeyre, France beginning at 11:30 p.m. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue # 131).

1967 - At 9:00 p.m. three witnesses in Boadilladel Monte, Spain independently saw a craft emitting light signals land a few meters away. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 813).

1968 - On this night a sentry at Cinco Picos AFB on the Azores Islands, Sr. Serafin Viera Sebastiao, age 36, noticed interference on his transistor radio then saw a UFO so close to the ground that he could see four occupants. The metallic oval object was topped by a transparent "tower" with a small balustrade against which two of the beings were leaning. The other two could be seen as silhouettes inside the transparent tower. After telephoning another sentry he approached and shone his flashlight on the craft. He was enveloped in smoke emitted by the UFO and fell to the ground in a faint, where the other sentry found him a few minutes later.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-14, citing FSR).

1968 - At 8:15 p.m. two men six miles west of Vernal, Utah named Allred and Barton saw a reddish orange ball of light that was much larger than the biggest star. It moved rapidly, blinked on-off, and disappeared in the south. (Source: Frank B. Salisbury, The Utah UFO Display, Appendix case 60).

1978 - At 10:20 p.m. the witness saw a large silvery disc-shaped object shoot overhead and land behind some nearby trees in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England. Two figures about six feet tall were next seen standing next to the landed UFO. Both were human looking wearing silvery suits. The UFO then left the area at very high speed. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, case # 165, citing Nigel Watson, Strange Magazine # 10).

1993 - At 12:30 a.m. in Noranda, Western Australia Kylie C. awoke and saw a small figure standing beside her bed, halfway down the side. At the foot of her bed stood three taller beings. The smaller figure had dark almond-shaped eyes, small nostrils, and thin lips. Its head was bald and prominent. It had a potbelly and appeared to have only three fingers on each hand. The witness felt the desire to reach out and touch the figure as an overwhelming feeling of love and compassion embraced her, but she was unable to move or call out. The being moved back and disappeared, but before it did it gave her a telepathic message that "its not time yet." The following morning she was sore behind the ears and found some small pin pricks in the same area. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, case # 2682, citing Brian Richards, UFORUM).

1994 - At 8:30 p.m. the witness's vehicle engine stalled in Badalucco, Italy as a silvery cigar-shaped craft hovered over the road. The craft then directed several beams of light towards the ground. A humanoid figure is also seen standing on the road near the vehicle. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1994, case # 2506, citing Jan Aldrich, Project 1947 website).

1998 - At around 2:30 a.m. Rowena Judd was asleep in her bedroom in Freemantle, Western Australia when she suddenly awoke to see a humanoid figure standing at her bedroom door. The figure seemed to be dark in color and had a shining light around it. No facial features could be seen. It seemed to disappear. Two weeks later a beam of light came out of the sky after a loud zipping noise and illuminated the Judd house. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1998, case # 3022, citing Joseph Trainor, UFO Roundup Vol. 3 # 9).
