 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 February 2

1954 - At 7:45 p.m. in Greenwich, Connecticut a low-flying luminous disc-shaped object turned north and followed the local river upstream. It glowed from the inside, and scared the two boys named Morrell and Moshier who observed it. (Source: Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A History. 1954: January-May, p. 32).

1955 - At 11:15 a.m. Dario Celis and his co-pilot Cortes were flying 25 miles southwest of Barquisimento, Venezuela when their radio cut out. Their aircraft was then buzzed by a multicolored Saturn or top-shaped object that was rotating counterclockwise. The body of the craft was green, but around the center of the object was a red ring or band that emitted flashes of brilliant light. Above and below this band were lighted portholes.  The UFO leveled off and raced away. (Sources: Donald E. Keyhoe, Flying Saucer Conspiracy, p. 249; Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, p. 74; Richard F. Haines, CE-5: Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind, p. 9).

1955 - At the Miramar Naval Air Station, California at 11:50 a.m. USN Cmdr. J. L. Ingersoll sighted a highly polished sphere with reddish-brown coloring. The object appeared to be falling in the sky, then it instantly accelerated to between 1,000-1,500 m.p.h. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 3416; Loren E. Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1955: January-June, p. 19; Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

1958 - At 3:30 p.m. farmer Yasukichi Nakaguchi and his son, and Kametaro Takuma, saw an egg-shaped object that landed silently in Hokkaido, Japan. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 459).

1958 - At 8:15 p.m. a UFO with a cone-shaped orange flame at its tail moved southwest to northeast over Seacombe Gardens, Adelaide, South Australia. It made a droning noise like a motor, and flew at an estimated altitude of 20,000 feet. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs Over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 163).

1966 - Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Wise of Salisbury, North Carolina saw a silver colored, diamond-shaped object in the sky at 11:15 p.m.. It had several smaller balls of light constantly circling it in very fast motion around it in a dazzling light show. The UFO hovered over some trees for 3-4 minutes while a dog barked, and then zipped out of sight. The sighting lasted for an hour. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 10193; Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns; Don Berliner, Australasian Ufologist, April 1999, p. 52; Lloyd Mallan, Science and Mechanics, December 1966, p. 30).

1967 - At 12:30 a.m. pilot Sanvitti and co-pilot Calderon were onboard a Fawcett Airlines DC-4 airliner flying between Chiclayo and Lima, Peru when their plane was paced by a cone-shaped object. The aircraft's magnetic compass oscillated 15 degrees left, then 20 degrees right, the cabin lights dimmed, and their radio went out. The bright luminous UFO first came toward them, then stopped above them giving off a blue beam of light; it went away, then came at then again joined by a second object flying behind. Finally, both UFOs sped away. The close encounter lasted for more than six minutes, and was witnessed by a total of 58 passengers and crew. (Sources: Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II:  A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 9, 118 & 326, UNICAT case #551, citing Lumieres dans la Nuit, April 1982, p. 16; Richard F. Haines, Project Delta: A Study of Multiple UFO, p. 187).

1968 - On this night Serafin Vieria Sebastiao, a military sentry at Criaco do Cabrito on the Azores Islands noticed interference on his transistor radio and then saw a UFO so close to the ground that he could see four of its occupants. The UFO was oval shaped and metallic, and was topped by a transparent "tower" with a small balustrade. Two beings were leaning against the railing, the other two could be seen as silhouettes inside the transparent tower. After phoning another sentry he approached the craft and shone his flashlight on it. Immediately he was enveloped in a fog or smoke emitted by the UFO, and he fell to the ground in a faint. The second sentry found him a few minutes later. (Sources: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-14, citing FSR, July-August 1968; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1968, case 37).

1969 - On this night near near Nuble, Chile--close to the "Los Francos" thermal springs--a strange sphere was seen passing overhead. Two car engines started by themselves even though their batteries were disconnected. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 259, citing CONTACT (UK)).

1971 - Two women, Mrs. Sinikka Kuittinen and Mrs. Manninen were driving from Kuusamo, Finland towards Oulu at 8 p.m. when in the town of Kiiminki they observed a light behind the car on the right hand side of the road. After some time the light passed over to the left side of the road, during which the ears of Mrs. Kuittinen plugged up. When they came to a field the light disappeared. Suddenly Mrs. Kuittinen, who was driving, saw a one meter tall creature with a helmet on its head. It was clad in a brown-green coverall suit and crossed the road using small jumps, disappearing on the other side of the road. There were no houses or other buildings in the area. The women were very scared and did not stop to investigate if it had left tracks, but drove straight to Oulu. (Sources: Lumieres dans la Nuit, August 1972; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1971-05, citing Mervi Virtanen).

1977 - A 21-year-old man reported to police in Concord, California that on leaving a restaurant at 4:10 a.m. he was confronted by two short, gray-skinned men with large skulls, no hair, and eyes with black pupils. The next thing he knew he was in a school playing field and facing a circular craft. The craft had landed on the ground there and had a ladder extending toward him. Next he found himself inside the object with no recollection as to how he got there. He was examined by the beings, and told telepathically that they were on "a mission to study life habits" on Earth. They also told him that their craft was from a larger ship located outside the Earth's atmosphere. While on board he stuck his hand into a chamber, which cause "all sorts of lights to go off." Finally, he found himself outside an apartment complex in Concord, where for 15 minutes he was paralyzed and unable to move. He called the police at 5:33 a.m. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case Humcat 1977-06, citing The Concord Transcript).

1980 - Two aliens briefly paralyzed a female witness in Araguari, Brazil. The beings were described as being a little bit over one meter in height and having large heads. They used a small object that emitted a luminous beam. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1980, citing Revista Brasileira de Ufologia).

1995 - A woman woke up at three a.m. in her home near Dallas, Texas and found herself staring at a short thin white being in her bedroom. She was lying on her right side and its face was only slightly above hers. It was about 3 or 4 feet tall. Next she saw movement out of the corner of her left eye and saw its hand lift slowly off her shoulder. The hand had three very long, white, slender fingers with rather bulbous tips on the ends. The creature was very white and frail looking. Its abdomen was sunken and hollow looking which made its chest seem to protrude. The being moved slowly toward the top of her head. She had the feeling that the being was scanning her mind. A cold paralysis or electric sensation spread throughout her body as she heard the being whisper something. Her next memory was of seeing the being standing by the hallway staring at her. She then went back to sleep. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1995, case # 2978, citing Amy Lynn).

2000 - Several people in Priolo, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy saw a humanoid figure suspended high in the sky over the sea at eight o'clock in the morning. Others claimed the object resembled a silver bullet. (Source: UFO Magazine (UK), May 2000, p. 10; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2000, citing UFO Roundup).
