 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 February 15

1950 - In a newspaper story published in December 1967, a man from Salzburg, Austria claimed that he was abducted by a five-foot tall Grey humanoid UFOnaut who wore a silver uniform with a fishbowl style helmet. The incident reportedly occurred in a forest five miles north of Salzburg at around 11:00 p.m. at night. He was paralyzed and was floated up to the top of a round craft that had landed in a nearby field. The UFO had a dark interior, and the experience involved an off-Earth journey. The encounter lasted about an hour. (Source: Charles Bowen, Flying Saucer Review, July-August 1967, p. 11).

1956 - At 12:40 p.m. a brown cigar-shaped object was seen flying on a straight and level course over Riverside, California by a US Navy enlisted man named Taylor. The sighting lasted eight minutes. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 027).

1956 - While a large luminous disc hovered over Keansburg, New Jersey in Monmouth County at 9:30 p.m. two small satellite objects were ejected from it and flew away.

Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1956: January-April, p. 32).

1963 - A metallic domed disc with a transparent dome and aerial and a concave bottom hovered 30 meters above the ground at a farm in Moe, Victoria, Australia. It was about eight meters in diameter, and gave off a bluish glow as it emitted a swishing noise. Horses and cattle on the farm panicked and fled. It climbed into the sky at a 45 degree angle going off toward the west and into the clouds.

1969 - William Black observed a yellow-orange light moving from south to north while walking his dog at 10:40 p.m. in Brooklyn, New York. He saw a small protuberance on the edge of the "disc" as it passed overhead. After he crossed the street he saw two light sources going north, which veered slightly and headed off to the northeast. (Source: William Black, NICAP case files, letter dated February 18, 1969).

1970 - A shiny ball about four feet in diameter, looking like the mirrored ball in a ballroom or disco, zoomed by a residence in Birmingham, England at 6:30 a.m. making a buzzing noise. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 9043, citing FSR).

1972 - At 4:30 p.m. in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, Malaysia a 6-year-old boy named Husain saw a 2" tall being, but with no UFO present. Fifteen minutes later a 12-year-old boy named Yakob confirmed his report by witnessing the same tiny humanoid creature.

1976 - Two men, Gelo and Carmona, were riding on a motorcycle between Olivares and Gerena, Sevilla, Spain at 8:10 p.m. when their motorcycle engine died. They then saw a 30 meter long cigar-shaped object on the roadside. (Sources: FSR, October 1976, p. 10; Geoffrey Falla, BUFORA Vehicle Interference Project Report, case 76).

1978 - Late at night, a 15-year-old teenage girl woke up in her bed in her home near Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She saw an intense light emanating from outside her bedroom window and was unable to move. However, she was able to see out the window and saw a luminous dome-shaped object hovering very close to the ground in the garden. It was completely motionless, and had pulsating multi-colored lights on its top. Suddenly she heard a voice inside her head that said: "We will pick you up and you will join us." Terrified, she answered in her mind: "No, I will not come with you because I am materialistic and very attached to the banal joys of life. You are advanced spiritually and extremely distant from my concerns. Leave me, spirituality does not interest me". After about an hour of what felt like constant mental struggle her paralysis subsided and she was finally able to move. The dome-shaped machine then slowly rose up from the garden. Terrified, she ran for her parents, who saw the slowly ascending object leave, emitting multicolored flashes of light. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Jimmy Guieu, Our Masters the Extraterrestrial Ones).

1979 - At 10:00 p.m. a 15 meter in diameter luminous domed disc was seen over the Metauro River in Fano, Italy during a rainstorm. It shot out "black rays" or beams. (Source: Maurizio Verga, ITACAT: Italian UFO Catalogue).

1988 - Nocturnal lights and a domed disc descended over a high tension tower in Rotherham, Yorkshire, England then silently shot off at 12:20 a.m. (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1990, p. 22).

1992 - A dome-shaped UFO with white windows or lights rotating around the base hovered over Risley Nature Reserve in Warrington, England at 7:15 a.m. It was seen from the M62 highway, and it disappeared into a large cloud. (Source: Timothy Good, Alien Update, p. 250, citing the Northern UFO Network).

1994 - At 11:00 p.m. a glowing oblong object caused electromagnetic interference effects on a car in Enkopping, Uppsala, Sweden. The UFO then sped away. (Source: Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty Year Report, p. 68, citing Paolo Fiorino & Matteo Leone, Centro Italiano Studi Ufologici (CISU)).

1996 - Two witnesses reported that at 8:10 p.m. a luminous cigar-shaped object hovered close to the ground in Proaza, Oviedo, Spain. A sphere with "sticks" extended to the ground and illuminated the surrounding terrain. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 17617).

1999 - For a total of three minutes a single witness in Lucky Point, Knox County, Indiana saw a bright light in the northwest. A silvery, shimmering disc-shaped object the size of a Boeing 707 then came into view, moving silently. The UFO tipped on its side, and then traveled up-and-down in all directions. It next moved in a figure-8 pattern and flew off towards the northwest. A photograph was taken. The next day the witness was approached by three men in dark suits who demanded the print and the negative. The three men identified themselves as employees of Indianapolis Power and Light and asserted that it was illegal to take photos of the power lines. I.P. & L. was contacted and denied that it sent representatives to interview the witness. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1999, citing Kerry Teverbaugh, Indiana MUFON).

2002 - A dark, noiseless triangular shaped craft was sighted flying over Salt Lake City, Utah at 3:00 a.m. The sighting lasted from 3 to 4 minutes. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, Mar. 2002 webpage, report uploaded Sep. 28, 2002).

2005 - At 1:25 p.m. in Maple Ridge, British Columbia two witnesses sighted a large white oval object with legs hanging down. It rose quickly out of sight. At 6:28 p.m. in Ruskin, British Columbia a single witness sighted a large V-shaped object with lighted panels on the underneath side. At 9:00 p.m. in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada two witnesses reported that a multicolored light hovered over them for four minutes, shifted back and forth, then shot away towards the east. (Source: Geoff Dittman, 2005 Canadian UFO Survey, cases # 7, 8, & 6; citing UFOBC, HBCCUFO, and NUFORC).

2006 - The witness was driving alone from Elaine to Crumrod, Arkansas at six o'clock in the evening when he noticed two very bright lights on each side of his car that began to follow him. He turned into the driveway of the first house he came to and the lights did the same. He did not get out of the car, but instead blew the car horn for several minutes while the bright lights remained close to his car. He then saw figures with glowing eyes standing all around the house; they were looking at him. He started calling family members and friends on his cellphone, but it soon went dead and so did the car's engine. A friend whom he had succeeded in phoning came by to pick him up, but did not see anything. His car still would not start an hour after the incident and had to be jump started. The resident of the house refused to come out because he thought there was something “strange” happening outside. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2006, citing Peter Davenport, NUFORC, March 2006 webpage, report uploaded March 11, 2006).
