Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1904 - At 35.97 N 128.60 W in the Pacific Ocean between
Honolulu and San Francisco at 6:10 a.m., three large dull red bodies flew
in from the northwest over the U.S.S. Navy ship Supply. The largest
one was egg or pear shaped, and six times the apparent size of the sun.
The objects flew in an eschelon formation, flying very fast below the
clouds. They gained altitude, turned, and travelled off to the west-northwest
while climbing above broken clouds. There were at least three sailors
as witnesses, including the main witness named Schofield. The duration
of the event was more than two minutes. (Sources: New York Herald,

1952 - An oil company employee was driving on the highway in Lomo de Ballena, Peru at 4:30 p.m. when he allegedly encountered a 10 meter in diameter disc hovering 500 meters away. Three uniped beings with rough, towel-like skin that looked something like "mummies" glided from the hovering object toward him. They communicated a message to him, warning of the dangers of atomic energy. He was also given a short tour flight on the craft. (Source: Richard Greenwell, FSR, November-December 1970, p. 12).
1953 - Philippe Daurces and four other witnesses in Beirut, Lebanon
sighted a procession of 12 disc-shaped objects with distinct contours
at 6:30 p.m. Each craft had a bluish leading edge and left a trail of
smoke. They flew across the sky one after the other, crossing the sky
on parallel courses within a few minutes. When viewed through binoculars,
each had a crimson red light. They flew at a constant speed, and it took
them three minutes to fly from zenith to the horizon. They made no sound.

1959 - Private Gerry Irwin, a Nike missile technician, was driving from Nampa, Idaho to his barracks at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. He had reached Cedar City, Utah at about 1 p.m. when he observed a glowing object cross the sky. Irwin decided it could have been an airliner on fire attempting a crash landing, so he went to investigate. Using shoe polish, he wrote "Stop" on the side of his car, and left a note on the steering wheel that read: "Have gone to investigate possible plane crash. Please call law enforcement officers." A short time later a fish and game inspector did stop and took the note to the Cedar County sheriff, Otto Pfief, who returned to the site with a group of volunteers. No trace of an airplane crash was found, but Irwin was soon found unconscious and taken to a hospital. When Irwin finally woke up form a deep sleep, he was puzzled by the absence of his jacket. He was flown back to Fort Bliss and placed under observation for four days, after which he returned to duty.
Irwin behaved strangely: he was plagued by fainting, didn't seem to be aware of the correct date, and kept asking, "were there any survivors?" He was placed in a hospital for psychiatric examination. On April 18th, the day after being discharged, Irwin felt a powerful urge to return to the site of his strange encounter. Once there he walked straight to a bush and found his missing jacket. There was a pencil in a buttonhole with a piece of paper wound tightly around it. Irwin curiously took the paper and burned it. He then went to sheriff Pfief, who provided him with the details of the initial incident. Shortly afterwards Irwin's case came to the attention of the inspector general, who ordered a new investigation. On July 10, Irwin re-entered the hospital. On August 1, he failed to report for duty. One month later, he was listed as A.W.O.L. and was not seen again. (Sources: Albert S.

1959 - At 8:40 p.m. a round silver disc-shaped object hovered
in the sky over the city of Cordoba, Argentina for 15 minutes.
It gave off several brilliant flashes before vanishing. At 11:40 p.m.
a rotorless silent helicopter-shaped object directed a beam of light at
some linemen workers in San Salvador de Jujuy, Argentina. Red lights
were seen exiting from the object. (Source: APRO Bulletin, May
1969 - In Miajadas, Caceres, Spain at 2:45 a.m., during the same time that an earthquake hit the area, a truck driver and his assistant observed a strange craft and five humanoid beings, described as tall and luminous. Seized with an irrational fear, they drove away as quickly as possible. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1969-13 (A1030), citing Manuel Osuna).
1974 - The witness was motorcycling to work in Hirson,
France at 5:30 in the morning when his motorcycle stopped suddenly
in Origny en Thierache, and he found himself face to face with two beings
he described as "cosmonauts" standing in the road. The two men grabbed
his motorbike and and held on to it firmly. They were dressed in dark
coveralls with square helmets, and sleeve-length gauntlets, but it was
too dark to see their features through their helmet visors. They wore
sleeve-length gauntlets, and one being gestured to the other, who brought
out from a bag on his back a small piece of substance resembling chocolate;
this he presented to the witness, urging him by gestures to eat it. The
witness did so, but to his surprise it had no noticeable taste. They then
moved off and let him pass. About 100 feet to the right side of the road
he had saw a large, dark circular mass about six feet high, sitting directly
on the ground. , where traces of crushed grass were later found. (Sources:

1974 - At 11:00 p.m. in Mellionec, Cotes-Nord department, France two luminous 20 cm long ovoid objects hovered only 1.5 meters above the ground, then rose silently over the rooftops of the town. A third object joined them. (Source: Jean-F. Boedec, Les OVNI en Bretagne: Anatomie d'un Phenomene, p. 47).
1974 - In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil a man reported that
he was home alone at 7:30 p.m., standing in his kitchen, when he suddenly
was transported to a square room with no apparent doors or windows.
A loud voice emanated from a box-like device in the corner of the room
which told him to remain calm. A door then appeared in the wall across
from him, then the door opened and a large dark, oval-shaped "apparatus"
emerged. The apparatus came towards him and a yellow light came down
from the top of it, illuminating him. From out of the oval-shaped machine
emerged a figure that was an exact replica of the witness. This double
spoke to the witness and told him that he did not intend to harm him
or anybody else. This being then disappeared through one of the walls.
A large TV like screen then appeared. The witness could see the actions
of his double through this screen and was directed to assist him with
his voice. He was finally released and the aliens apparently recalled
his double. The aliens told the witness that they were here to help
humanity. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1974,
case # 829, citing Irene Granchi, FSR, Volume 32, Number 3).
1993 - In County Wexford, Ireland a woman was taking a morning walk along a country road by herself when whe heard an odd sound coming from a nearby ditch by the edge of a field. She went over to look and there she saw a little dwarfish woman, about two foot tall with long red hair, who was trying to pick up a smooth stone that was wedged in the soil. The woman was wearing a purple outfit and had what appeared to be two raven feathers in her hair. When the witness got closer she could see that the dwarf was struggling with the stone. The little woman suddenly noticed the witness and vanished in plain sight. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, case # 281, citing The Star Network Heartline, Vol. # 12, April 1993).
1994 - In Chester, England at 2:30 p.m. a blue domed cigar-shaped

1996 - Five people driving on highway 375 in Nevada down an isolated stretch of desert road watched a silent, silvery gray disc land about 50 feet away from them. It was flat on the bottom and about 30 feet in diameter. Three beings described as thin, gray in color and with large heads, emerged from the craft. They shuffled around outside for a short while and then went back inside the UFO, which promptly took off. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, case # 2847, citing UFOs On Line).
1999 - Ana Carolina de Machado reported being chased by three hairy humanoids with large round eyes in Votoporanga, Sao Paolo state, Brazil as she was walking through the city park at 12:12 a.m. According to the witness the humanoids suddenly materialized in front of her and then began to chase her. She managed to elude the creatures by running to a nearby security detachment post. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, citing Thiago Luiz Ticchetti, EBE-ET).
2006 - According to the witness, at 12:30 a.m. in Sabana Grande,

near a landed bell-shaped object for 60 minutes. They and the object were
650 feet away. They stood 3-4 feet tall, had long fingers, almond eyes,
and big heads. There was a sequence of lights from the top and sides of
the bell, as well as the rim of the disc-shaped bottom. There was a probe-like
arm that hovered and moved 20 feet from the ground. (Source: John Hayes,
