1978 - On this night two young men, LaMazon and Martinez, were driving on National Highway 11 near San Justo, Santa Fe province, Argentina when a strong white light approached their vehicle and the car stopped immediately. A tall being dressed in black approached, stopped three meters away, turned around, then walked back into the light. No traces or footprints could be found. (Sources: Jane Thompson, UFO Newsclipping Service, April 1978, p. 16, citing Cronica, February 15, 1978).

1979 - A small cigar-shaped object with small windows came out of a cloud in the predawn hours and was seen by four witnesses in Melo, Uruguay. It changed colors from red to green to yellowand finally to blue while it flew in a horizontal straight line. It then went back into the clouds. The witnesses included a young woman and the Police Chief of the city. It was the young woman's second sighting and the Police Chief's third. (Sources: Jane Thompson, UFO Newsclipping Service, April 1979, p. 15, citing Cronica, February 14, 1979).

1981 - The main witness had finished closing up his canteen in Fuentecen, Valladolid province, Spain at 2:30 a.m. He was walking back to his house when he observed several golden lights in a nearby field. He approached the lights but they suddenly rose up, circled, and landed again, this time closer to his home. The man went inside and woke his wife and son, and they all observed an object on the ground that intermittently gave off bright flashes of light. At this time his dogs began barking and acting strangely. His wife became frightened and went back to bed. Later, he heard footsteps and one of his dogs led him to a "figure" standing by the fence on his property. The being was a meter and a half tall, box-like in shape, and appeared metallic and almost robotic in nature. It did not seem to have a head, arms or feet. The dog approached the figure and began barking, and then both man and his son heard a strange barking "echo" that seem to come from the figure itself. The witness grabbed a flashlight and ran out, he then heard a loud "crackling" sound. The figure by now had disappeared. He next saw an object with rotating red lights rise from a nearby field and leave at high speed. A scorched area was found on the ground by government authorities. (Sources: UFO Newsclipping Service, 19810113; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1981, case # 641, citing J. J. Benitez, La Quinta Columna).

1982 - A 25 meter arrowhead-shaped UFO with spotlights hovered over a field in Spartanburg, South Carolina at 10:30 p.m. It then followed a car being driven by the witness. An odd silence was noted. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 14349, citing APRO Bulletin, volume 31, no. 5).

1997 - At 11:30 p.m. Marta Aguilar Montoya and her two small children were asleep in their bedroom in Santiago, Chile when she heard a crackling noise that woke her up suddenly. Turning her head, she noticed a small figure about 4-foot 8 inches tall standing next to the TV; it was wearing a tight-fitting suit and a helmet with a visor. The being also wore a backpack connected to the helmet by two hoses, one over each shoulder. Frightened, she brought her two children to her bed and just continued to watch. The being stared at the trio but never made a move towards them. After several minutes the being turned to face the bedroom wall, and again there was a loud crackling sound. It then disappeared through the wall, leaving only its silhouette on the wall, which disappeared after two minutes. (Sources: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 17872; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1997, case # 2465, citing Luis Sanchez).

2003 - A police crime scene technician in Seattle, Washington was driving home from a crime scene at 2:30 a.m. when it started to rain. His car suddenly began making weird noises and the car radio turned on automatically, scanning through numerous stations at a rate of one a second. Lights inside and outside the car were also flashing. When he looked up he saw a huge triangular-shaped object above the car. In a few seconds blinding blue lights distracted the witness. The next thing he remembers all action suddenly stopped, and his car was parked on the side of the road with everything switched off. When he looked at his watch it was 3:03 a.m. He had lost track of 33 minutes of time. He turned his car engine on and drove back to his office.

2004, Jordanow, Poland - At one o'clock in the morning Mrs. K. J., age 77, awoke and went to the bathroom and then back to her bedroom. As she passed through the kitchen she was surprised to see a strong fiery orange light outside, floating in the sky. She realized it couldn't be the moon. The light was hemisphere shaped, with a flat bottom and round top. The light had an apparent size 2-3 times larger than the full moon. The light hung over the forest on Hajdowka Hill, 1.5 kilometers from her house. She watched it for about five minutes and started to feel so she went back to bed. During the night she had a disturbing "dream" about meeting with a huge shiny "thing". She awoke feeling very frightened, around 6:30 a.m. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2004, citing Robert K Lesniakiewicz).
