 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 February 6

1953 - At 1:13 a.m. PST a B-36 was flying in the vicinity of Rosalia, Washington inbound to Spokane AFB when a round white omni-directional light was sighted. The light was at an altitude of approximately 7,000 feet on a southeasterly course, and began circling the B-36 and rising above it as the aircraft approached it.  The light was visually observed for a period of three to five minutes. The B-36 made a 180 degree turn toward the light which was estimated to be moving at a speed of 150 to 200 knots.The report contains a very accurate sighting description, showing that the object circled as the B-36 approached it, and the light commenced flashing at short intervals.

1963 - A 21-year-old painter name Salmaso, walking through the snowy woods outside of Padua, Italy saw a very large, round luminous UFO. Nearby stood a man wearing a garment that appeared to be made of a cellophane-like material. He took four photos before the man climbed aboard the craft and took off.

1966 - At 5:05 a.m. Mr. & Mrs. K. R. Gulley of Nederland, Texas sighted a yellow lighted disc or tadpole-shaped object at 500 feet altitude. It cast a pulsating red glow that illuminated their lawn. Their house lights went out, and a high frequency sound disturbed the ears of both witnesses.The sighting lasted from 5-10 minutes. (Sources: J. Allen Hynek, The UFO Experience, p. 17; The Hynek UFO Report, p. 186; UNICAT, case # 287; Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 10196; Don Berliner, Australasian Ufologist, April 1999, p. 52).

1966 - A domed disc-shaped object maneuvered through the sky over Obispo Trejo, Cordoba Province, Argentina for over a minute  at 2:30 p.m. There were five witnesses. (Source: Roberto Enrique Banchs, Flying Saucer Review, January-February 1966, p. 9; September-October 1966, p. 29).

1966 - At 8:00 p.m. Vicente Ortuno and another man observed a bright luminous orange disc-shaped object, about 11 meters in diameter and with three legs, which came down making a humming sound, landed in a pasture on the "El Relajal" estate in Aluche, Madrid province, Spain and took off again shortly thereafter at high speed. It left behind three rectangular holes 15 cm x 30 cm, 6 meters apart, and a circular area of burned grass at the landing site.

Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II. A Thirty Year Report, p. 263).

1967 - Mr. Donald Guseman and Mrs. Marie Guseman spotted a large, Saturn-shaped object at 8:45 p.m. in Odessa, Delaware. The UFO was 50 feet in diameter and 20 feet in height and had two bright lights, a green light on one side and a red light on the other. It hovered motionless over some trees, then slowly moved north and suddenly vanished after two minutes. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

1967 - Miss R. Ford was driving between Deming and Las Cruces, New Mexico at about noon when a cigar-shaped object started pacing her car. It was green with a long row of shiny windows, and had two small propellers atop each end. It hovered over the highway, while a second object rose from ground and joined up with the first, and then both sped out of sight in seconds. Note: Deming contains copper mines.

1969 - At 7:30 a.m. people in Pirassununga, Sao Paolo, Brazil were excited about a mysterious disc-shaped object on a hillside. Tiago Machado, age 19, got out his binoculars and went up the hill, approaching to within 30 feet. It had a narrow dome on top, was aluminum colored, about 12 feet in diameter and 5 feet high. A hinged door was open in the top of the dome, and from this two humanoid figures emerged and seemed to float to the ground. Two others were visible inside the craft, through windows. The beings, 4.5 feet tall, were dressed in tight, silvery garments without buttons, covering them from head to foot. Their facial features were seen through transparent helmets. Their skin was yellow, and they had slanting eyes, and mouths with thin, slit-like lips. They came to within 3-4 meters of the witness. When they laughed at the witness, who was smoking a cigarette, he could see that they had black teeth. He tossed the cigarette pack close to one, who put his hand above it, and the pack floated up into his hand. The thumb of his hand was set further back than on a human hand. The beings spoke in “hoarse, guttural” sounds. When a friend called out to the witness the entities walked backward and re-entered through the door. The second one, when halfway through, pointed a tube at Machado, which emitted a bluish flame that “floated” toward him. When it hit him, he felt pain and was paralyzed; as the UFO took off, almost horizontally, the witness fainted. A red welt remained where the flame had struck him. On the ground were found three landing gear leg marks. (Sources: Walter Buhler, FSR Case Histories, June 1971, p. 9; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # A1023, citing SBEDV Bulletin, September 1973).

1969 - Barbara Mina Da Silva was weeding a rice field later that same morning at a place called Chacara Do Benedito, Pirassununga, Sao Paulo State, Brazil when two boys, Joao Batista Da Silva, age 9, and Benedito Paulino Ramos, age 13, called to her attention a “shining little tent” 500 meters away. She described it as white, looking like one of the triangular tents used by exterminators of the sauva ant. Nearby were three men with helmets, whom she took to be the workers fighting the ants. The boys told her that the men’s clothing was shining, but she described it as gray. She continued her work, when suddenly the boys cried out, “Look, the little tent has disappeared.” She saw that both tent and men had indeed gone. Shortly afterward the boys pointed out a “luminous ball the size of the sun” stationary just above the woods. It disappeared after 30 minutes, and soon after a Brazilian Air Force helicopter appeared and descended about two kilometers away. The helicopter was seen on several occasions during the next few days. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # A1023, citing Nigel Rimes, FSR Special Bulletin #3, p. 39).

1980 - Mr. Pavao, a 55-year old farmer from Montargil, Portugal had just left his farm and was taking his sheep to the fields at around eleven o'clock in the morning. He heard a noise and had a feeling that something was happening behind him. At the same time his dog started to panic. He turned and was surprised to see two eight-foot tall humanoids standing close to him and staring at him. The humanoids looked very strong and were dressed in gray suits. Their faces looked human except their eyes and skin appeared different. Their hands were hairy and very big. The beings approached him with friendly gestures and touched his left shoulder and several other parts of his body. At the same time they spoke in an unknown language with a modulation similar to human speech. One of the beings then pointed to the sheep, and Mr. Pavao told him the type of animal it was. Meanwhile the two beings kept talking and laughing. The witness then gave an order to his dog to fetch one of the sheep. When he looked back towards the beings he saw an intense flash of light that blinded him for a few seconds. After that the beings had vanished. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1980, case # 2378, citing Victor Laurenco, PORTUCAT).

1989 - On this night a woman in Perm, Russia saw a bright disc-shaped object hovering over the area. The craft brightened suddenly and the witness became disoriented. She could only remember that her own dog attacked her. Later, under hypnosis, she recalled confronting two very tall figures within a light. The beings touched her on the back with a very cold metallic triangular device, which had the effect of blocking her memory of the experience.

1996 - At around 7:30 p.m. farmer Louis Boisvert, 19, saw a very large metallic triangular craft with a set of red lights hovering over his barn in Thurso, Quebec while he was plowing snow with his tractor. This was on the same night that witnesses saw a large triangular vessel hovering over the town of Buckingham, Quebec. The craft flew very slowly over the barn. The light coming from the triangle did not illuminate the ground or even the roof of the barn. After the craft left Boisvert and his father noticed that their electric water pump was not working. Troubled by recurrent dreams, Boisvert underwent hypnotic regression. He was then able to remember that he had hopped off the tractor and ran to the barn where his father was working. As he rushed into the barn, he saw his father standing there with a blank expression on his face. Besides him stood two reptilian looking creatures with long faces, scaly leathery skin, black eyes, clawed hands, and gaunt arms and legs. Both Boisvert and his father were taken onboard the triangular object by the humanoids and later released. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, case #2481, citing CEIPI Quebec).

1998 - A family of three living near San Francisco, California remembered hearing noises during the night and waking up thinking somebody was in the house. Later they remembered seeing lights. In the morning they all woke up with bloody noses. Their young son remembered seeing a tall, greenish colored being in his bedroom. The being was over 6 feet tall, and it communicated with him, although he couldn't recall the message. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1998, case # 2989, citing UFO Network).
