 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 February 22

1922 - William C. Lamb was following strange tracks near Hubbell, Nebraska at 5:00 a.m. when he heard a high-pitched sound and saw a circular flying object. It became brilliantly lighted and landed in a hollow. Soon afterward, a creature over eight feet tall was seen flying from the direction where the object had landed. It left tracks in the snow, which Lamb followed without results. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 189; Jacques Vallee, Anatomy of a Phenomenon, p. 22).

1959 - Two witnesses saw three white discs pass into a cloud over the city of Warsop, England from which they never reappeared. (Source: J. Bernard Delair, Awareness, October 1977, p. 12).

1963 - A domed disc-shaped object landed on the frozen surface of Crystal Lake in Fergus County, Montana at 2 a.m. A door on the craft opened for 10 minutes, then shut. Half an hour later a fiery ball flew over Belgrade, Montana causing electrical power failures. (Sources: (1) Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 6303, citing MUFON UFO Journal, issue #328; (2) Orbit, January 1963, p. 23).

1966 - At 9:05 p.m. a domed disc-shaped flying object with portholes approached a woman's parked car next to a lake in South Kingston, New Hampshire. It backed away, landed, then rose in a rocking, reverse-falling leaf motion, and finally started to fly away. The witness gave chase, following it in her car. Her car's headlights shone on two objects. One departed, while the other danced around in the sky for 35 minutes. (Sources: Gordon I. R. Lore, Jr., UFOs: A New Look, p. 44; Kathleen Marden, MUFON field investigations database, case 980205SE).

1967 - On this morning at 6:30 a.m. a flying disc was seen at low level over a farm in Milton, Ohio by Mrs. Clevenger. Her dogs reacted strongly to the presence of the UFO. The encounter lasted several minutes. (Sources: Gordon I. R. Lore, Jr., Strange Effects from UFOs, p. 34; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, p. 279).

1967 - On this night Mr. G. Grammond of Chippenham, England saw an object with flashing red and green lights glide, circle, and then land in a field. He saw it again spinning in the northeast when he came out with two other witnesses five minutes later. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 818).

1969 - Nathan Brown, a 46-year-old Maori, was walking home in Awanui, New Zealand at one a.m. when he saw a light. He came upon two men sitting with their backs to the road and their feet in a ditch, while a pale young woman with white, shoulder length hair lay across the ditch. She wore a long white gown that covered her feet. The men sat in a relaxed attitude looking down at the woman. They were about 5.5 feet in height, had dark brown skin and closely cropped hair, and wore brown pants and jackets. He questioned the men but got no response. When he stepped closer to see what was wrong with the woman he ran into an invisible barrier that he likened to a bar across the stomach. He tried to grab one of the men but was again prevented by a force that repelled him. This frightened him and he ran off, "shaking like a leaf." The light he first saw was a luminous haze that had no visible source. Mr. Brown found some marks on the ground at the site the following day. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1969-12, citing Don Jackson and the Auckland University UFO Group).

1971 - On this evening five residents of Turun Sanomat, Finland saw a UFO, while another saw an entity dressed "like a vagabond." The being told him to follow him, and then experienced one hour of missing time. He found himself standing in same spot in intense cold, one hour later. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1106, citing Lumieres dans la Nuit, August 1972, p. 10).

1973 - On the night prior to this experience, Mrs Maureen Puddy "heard a voice" calling her name. The next morning she perceived a message telling her to return to the site of her 1972 vechicle UFO close encounter. She contacted two investigators of the Victorian UFO Research group and drove with them to the site at Mooraduc Crossing, Victoria, Australia. On route she briefly saw a man sitting in the front seat of the car whom her passengers did not see. As she approached the spot of her earlier encounter, she saw the same figure standing outside the car, but the others again saw nothing. She reported that the figure was normal sized, wearing a white ski suit style coverall tucked in at the wrists and covering the feet. He had long blond hair. He beckoned to Mrs Puddy, but she did not respond; instead, she appeared to lose consciousness.

She experienced some kind of altered state of consciousness, in which she was able to describe to the two passengers in the car what she was seeing at the moment. She felt she was in a round room lit by an unknown source. The figure appeared in the room with her, and the room was shaped like a large mushroom with a stem at the bottom and a hemispherical dome on top. It appeared to have an inner hemisphere that appeared to be wobbling, and had what looked like hieroglyphics on it. She saw no doors or windows in the room, and became frightened; she started to cry and "woke up" with tears in her eyes, but she could recall nothing of what had just happened in her trance-like state. About a week later she was driving with her son, and was seated in the front passenger seat. The same "man" again appeared, sitting between them, but her son did not see him. His presence was accompanied by an abrupt change in the weather, which had been rainy. It suddenly cleared, and Mrs Puddy could see for miles. When the figure vanished abruptly the rainy conditions again prevailed. (David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-09, citing Harry Little and Bill Stapleton).

1973 - A very low flying disc-shaped object was seen by two in Copnor, near Portsmouth, England at between 6:30-6:45 a.m. (Source: BUFORA Journal, April 1973, p. 33).

1976 - Leonard Hegele, a 29-year old student, spotted a seven-foot tall humanoid with three-foot wide shoulders walking through a field about a mile from Interstate I-15 south of Great Falls, Montana at around 10 a.m. It walked with a non-human gait. Mr. Hegele stopped his car and attempted to chase the being, but when he got to within 700-800 feet, the creature turned around to face him and Hegele lost his courage and ran back to his car. While he was chasing the creature Hegele saw a gray, oval shaped object hovering in the air nearby. It hovered only 10 feet above the ground, but periodically rose and fell back down another 15 feet. (Sources: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1976-41 (A1463), citing Jerome Clark; Great Falls Tribune, February 23, 1976).

1979 - In Meanwood, near Leeds, England at around 4:00 p.m. a eight-foot long ovoid object landed for three minutes. It left behind landing traces. (Source: Timmothy Good, Above Top Secret, p. 72).

1988 - In suburban Irwin, Pennsylvania a silent, orange disc-shaped object flew close by to three witnesses. It had a colorful aura, and shot two beams of light down before zig-zagging away. (Source: Stan Gordon, MUFON UFO Journal, May 1989; MUFON field investigations database, case 880302).

1990 - A 17-year-old woman felt a gust of wind around 10 p.m. on her family farm in Henryville, Indiana and then saw a bright silver disc-shaped object with lights over some nearby trees, which were swaying. He dog howled, and later became sick. The disc flew away by making a vertical ascent. (Sources: James Delehanty, MUFON UFO Journal, May 1990; MUFON field investigations database, case 900402; Francis L. Ridge, MUFON Indiana).

1997 - In Templeton, Massachusetts a 50-foot in diameter disc-shaped object with many lights around the rim made a droning sound as it flew over at 5:30 p.m. (Source: Francis L. Ridge, UFO Intelligence Newsletter, Volume 10, Number 2, citing Raymond Fowler).

2000 - A disc hovered low over a soccer field in Mexico City, Mexico at 2:00 a.m. It flashed multi-colored lights, then departed. (Source: UFO Magazine (USA), June 2000, p. 36).
