1960 - A nocturnal light trailed after a white, fan-shaped UFO in the skies over Rome AFB, New York at 6:27 p.m. Five military witnesses including control tower officer Capt. J. Huey and four other tower operators witnessed the two UFOs. They moved slowly in a three to four minute descent.

1961 - A ship's crew watched an oddly shaped flying object twist, turn, and fall into the sea between Lewis and Harris Islands in the Western Isles off Scotland. On that night at 10:15 p.m. a red sphere with light rays projecting out ahead of it was seen by Mrs. Lapham and her daughter for ten minutes in Bark River, Michigan. Her dog howled during the time that the UFO was present. (Sources: Janet Gregory, FSR, September-October 1971, p. 29; US Air Force Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case #7284).

1967 - There were seven good UFO reports made in North America on this day. Two 12-year-old boys in Bunkie, Louisiana saw two points of light with tails moving in spurts through the sky for about ten minutes at 1:30 a.m. At eleven o'clock in the morning, an engineer named Scott sighted a round, luminescent object the size of a dime at arm's length flying in a "lazy, lackadaisical manner" for 40 seconds in Newburgh, New York. A resident of Topeka, Kansas noticed a wide top-shaped UFO with red and blue body lights at 7:05 p.m. local time. The sighting lasted three minutes, and he noted that there was electrical interference on his television at the time. Less than 15 minutes later, at 8:19 EST, a multicolored oval object with red and green lights and a bright white light in the middle, made a ninety degree turn in the sky and then shot out over a road in Grand Haven, Michigan. It stopped in place, then shot away at a speed that was too fast to follow with the eye. At 7:30 p.m. MST in Vernal, Utah a luminous orange dome-shaped object, blue-green and with occasional red flamelike lights on the underside, dipped low and then disappeared over a hill after more than 30 minutes. In Port McNeill, British Columbia at 7:30 p.m. PST four witnesses named Flick, Harrison, and Siemens watched a large, bright, oval-shaped UFO that was white on top and blue on the bottom. They viewed it through a 45x telescope for several minutes. It later changed color to a bright red as it went straight, left, right, and disappeared and reappeared several times. Finally, at nine p.m. MST a cigar-shaped object briefly hovered over a hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. It was white on top and red on the bottom, and made a sound like a siren.

Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty Year Report, p. 329-330).

1970 - A boy saw a UFO that landed on four legs in Terrace, British Columbia around noon. He encountered a humanoid with a greenish tint who jabbered at him in an unintelligible language. (Source: John Brent Musgrave, UFO Occupants and Critters, p. 50).

1971 - Matt Dickson of Lawton, Oklahoma heard something out the front of his house early this evening. He looked out and in the dark caught a glimpse of a vaguely human-like figure kneeling on the front lawn near a nearby empty fishpond. Curious, Dickson decided to find out who the stranger was. He stepped out on his front porch for a better look and was terrified to see a wolf-like man attempting to scoop up puddles of water from the bottom of the fish pond, crouched on its hands and knees. The sight was so shocking that Dickson suffered a heart attack and had to be rushed to Comanche County Memorial Hospital. In a report to the police Dickson described the creature as tall, with a lot of hair all over its face and body. It was dressed in an indescribable manner. Others saw the same or similar creature that same night. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1971, case # 3004, citing Sharon Jarvis, Dark Zones).

1972 - A photograph of a domed, transparent object was taken by a Mr. Roll in Mart, Texas at 8:30 a.m. (Source: newspaper clipping data February 28, 1972).

1974 - On a highway one mile east of LaTrobe, Tasmania two witnesses, Thornton and Lamprey, sighted an orange colored UFO with a dome on top at 9:45 p.m. It was either disc shaped or delta shaped with three rounded corners, and it paced their vehicle. The object was about the size of a car. When they turned their car headlights off, the UFO responded by rapidly approaching. Their encounter lasted three minutes. (Source: W. K. Roberts, FSR, November 1975, p. 47).

1975 - In Harris county, Texas a cow and a second dead animal were found mutilated. Both of the eyes and the tongue were removed from the first animal. The sexual organs were removed from the second animal. (Source: Richard Hall, Zetetic Scholar, 050-016, citing the Houston Post, February 28, 1975).

1977 - Nils Toms Labba, age 51, a reindeer keeper in Ovre Soppero, Norrbotten province, Sweden was out on his motor scooter in the woods. At 10:00 a.m. near a lake beachfront he observed four strange beings dressed in brown. They seemed to be just staring blankly. Nearby them was a UFO about the size of a car that appeared to be transparent. When he approached to within 500 feet they quickly entered the object, and it ascended silently into the sky. When it took off the light made his eyes irritated. He drove to the landing site on his scooter but found no traces. (Sources: J. Allen Hynek, Center for UFO Studies, newspaper clipping dated March 8, 1977; David F.

1995 - Two UFO reports were made in northern England on this night. In Runcorn, Merseyside, England at 9:00 p.m. a spherical UFO sucked water up from the Mersey River through a black beam of some sort. It then changed shape into a rectangular object. In Morecambe in Lancashire, an ovoid UFO hovered over the York bridge for several seconds before shooting behind some clouds. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, June 1995).

1996 - Flashing lights in a triangular formation flew over Beufort, Sabah province, Malaysia on this night. A car was levitated by a UFO or UFOs in Lugo, Spain and put down on the opposite side of the road at 1:45 a.m. The car's dashboard clock also stopped working. The nocturnal lights associated with the UFO or UFOs were witnessed by independent witnesses. A pilot of a small aircraft over Saginaw, Michigan had to dive to avoid a collision with a very bright ball of light that appeared to jump out at his plane at around 10:00 p.m. In Seattle, Washington a very short dwarf appeared in a woman's bedroom during the night.

1997 - In Burnie, Tasmania a clear jelly like substance with yellow flakes in it was discovered on a lawn over a one-meter wide area. The substance was between 0.5 and 1.0 centimeters in thickness.
