Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1951 - A young girl, who was to have other UFO encounters later in life, was playing in her garden in Withdean, East Sussex, England between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m. when she saw a hovering disc-shaped object with a transparent dome on top. Inside the dome she could see three men, and they appeared to be looking down at her. The domed object made a descent into the garden and three humanoids with bald, domed heads exited. The men wore khaki-colored outfits, and carried a weird looking object. They floated toward the girl, then reversed direction, reboarded, and took off. Their exit was "like a film in reverse."

1953 - At 1:50 p.m. U.S. Weather Bureau observer Stanley H. Brown in Yuma, Arizona, using a theodolite, sighted a dull white, oblong object that was tracked flying straight up vertically, then leveling off and being joined by a second, similar looking object. The second UFO twice flew away and returned to the first. The two dull white objects maneuvered errratically, then in unison against the wind, one degree apart. A thin mist was seen around the edges of the objects.After five minutes both objects were lost to sight behind some clouds. A Project Blue Book unknown.

1954 - At 5:29 p.m. four air traffic controllers at Carswell AFB in Fort Worth, Texas sighted and tracked on radar a huge cigar-shaped object that flew without making any noise at 4,000 feet altitude. Separate blips on the radar screen parted and rejoined. The sighting lasted 10 minutes. (Source: Timothy Good, Above Top Secret, p. 281).
1955 - A woman on a moped saw four blue-green lights in the middle of a vineyard in Cerat, Pyrennes-Orientales, France at 7:25 p.m. The lights were arranged in an arc, five feet above the ground. Two tall beings stood motionless nearby.
1965 - On or about this date several people in Torrent, Corrientes province, Argentina observed five luminous objects in flight at night. A transparent craft landed, and five creatures about two meters high, with one eye in the forehead and flashing helmets, emerged and tried to abduct one of the villagers.

1973 - While driving from Iron Knob to Kimba, South Australia on Route One, Brian Hunt and his passenger, Miss Sharon Kinckler, observed a red light at 9:50 p.m. approximately 32 kilometers northeast of Kimba. It was in a clearing to the right of the road. As they passed it, the two observed a red orange lighted area of rectangular shape, about 10 feet high by 5 feet wide, in which they saw a sharply defined man in a white spacesuit. The figure was of normal height and appeared to be of ordinary shape, but was suspended some 2-3 inches above the ground. He floated into the middle of the lighted area some 2-3 feet above the base. Brian called this to his companion's attention as he accelerated past the scene, and Sharon was able to see the orange glow spread across the entire highway behind them. When they arrived at Miss Kinckler's home in Kimba, they called the local police and a constable accompanied them back to the site. The light was gone and no traces were found. Two other independent witnesses were subsequently located by investigators. Mr. Allen Degnor, a Ceduna truck driver who passed by the same area at 10.00 p.m. described essentially the same phenomenon. Mr. Max Inglis, who had passed Brian and Sharon just before reaching the site of the strange phenomenon. (Source: David F.

1977, Basford, Staffordshire, England - At 2:25 a.m. an

was in view. There was simultaneous radio interference at the Stafford
police headquarters. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving

1977 - At 1:30 p.m. several schoolboys at Broad Haven school in Pembrokeshire, Wales saw a huge silvery object on the ground about 300 yards away from them in an adjoining field. David George, age 9, said it was making a humming sound, and looked like a saucer with a point on top. He saw a man with long pointed ears and wearing a silver suit standing next to it. Tudor Jones, age 10, Jeremy Passmore, age 9, and David Ward, age 10, also saw the being. David Ward said, "the people wore green--they had sort of cameras---and they had pointed ears." The landed UFO was still there at 2 p.m. The object was a seen third time, again in the same place for five minutes, by a total of 14 boys and one girl. Their drawings show a domed, disc-shaped object. The site where the UFO was seen was surrounded by a muddy swamp; no traces were found. (Sources: David F.

1999 - Jorge Alfonso was walking his dog in Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil at 8:30 p.m. when he noticed a bright light some distance away. Thinking that it was a car that had broken down he approached to offer assistance. As he got nearer the light he was surprised to see that it was an object about three meters in diameter. Through a doorway he could see a humanoid operating some type of controls. He approached to within 30 meters of the object. Two minutes later the craft rose slowly up and disappeared into the sky.
