On This Day

 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 January 9

1963 -  On this day in Trail, Oregon a large, bright UFO emitted a cone-shaped tail and humming sound. A dog reacted to the UFO's presence by howling. (Source: Gordon I. R. Lore, Jr., Strange Effects from UFOs, p. 68).

1964 -  At 10:30 p.m. several green saucer-shaped UFOs maneuvered offshore over the surface of the sea near Nicastro, Calabria, Italy for ten minutes. As fishermen approached in a boat dove under the sea. (Source: Larry Hatch, case  # 6460, citing ITACAT, case # 56).

1966 - On this night the engine and lights of a car with three women passengers suddenly died in Chascomus, Argentina. At the same time they saw an object flying slowly away from their car. It was emitting a blue beam of light. After the object had disappeared from view the car could be restarted.

1967 - At 5:30 p.m. there was a knock at Edward Christiansen's home in Wildwood, New Jersey. Seventeen-year-old Connie Christiansen went to the door. Stunned, she reported back to her mother, "It's the strangest looking man I've ever seen." Mrs. Christiansen then went to the door and unlatched it and looked outside. It was growing dark and was bitter cold out. There was no car in view and this seemed unusual because the Christiansen home was in an isolated area and guests were unlikely to be arriving on foot. A tall man stood at the door and asked if Edward Christiansen lived there. He then said he was from "the Missing Heirs Bureau" and asked to be let in. They invited the stranger inside. The visitor must have been at least two meters (six and a half feet) tall, and was enormously broad shouldered. He wore a Russian fur hat with a black visor on it and a very long black coat that seemed to be made out of thin material--too thin for the cold weather. He told the family "this will only take forty minutes." As he removed his hat he revealed an unusually shaped head that was large and round, while his face seemed angular and pointed. He had black hair, which was closely cropped. There was a perfectly round spot on the back of his head as if that area had been shaved recently. His nose and mouth seemed relatively normal, but his eyes were large, protruding, like "thyroid eyes," and set wide apart. One eye appeared to have a cast, like a glass eye, and did not move in unison with its companion.

During the course of the conversation Mr. Christiansen noticed a badge on the stranger's shirt pocket, which he quickly covered with his hand and removed, placing it in his coat pocket. It resembled a gold or brass badge and it seemed to have a big K on it with a small x alongside and letters and numbers around the edge, according to Connie Christiansen. Underneath his thin outer coat he was wearing a short-sleeved shirt made of a Dacron like material. His trousers were of a dark gray or black material, and were a little too short. He wore dark shoes with unusually thick rubber soles. A strange feature on his leg fascinated Connie and Mrs. Christiansen. When he sat down they could see a long thick green wire attached to the inside of his leg. It came out or his socks and disappeared under his trousers. At one point it seemed to be indented into his leg and was covered with a large brown spot. The Christiansen's noted that the visitor had an unnatural pallor. His speech was also strange, with a high "tinny" voice that seemed especially peculiar coming from such a large man. He also spoke in a strange, hard to understand, sing-song manner. At one point when his face reddened he asked for a glass of water, and swallowed a large yellow capsule which he gulped down. He then returned to normal. After about 40 minutes he donned his hat and coat and told Mr. Christiansen that he would be in touch. When he reached the road, he made a gesture and a black 1963 Cadillac drove through the trees and pulled up. He climbed into the car and it drove away with its headlights off. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1967, case 22, citing John A. Keel, The Mothman Prophecies).

1967 - On the same night Jules Derome, age 60, of Acton Vale, Quebec, Canada reported that he encountered and photographed several 90-centimeter tall luminous humanoid forms in his garage. The strange forms disappeared by moving through the wall of the garage and presumably outside. The photos only show a vague luminous area. The witness apparently has had additional subsequent encounters. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1967, case 23, citing CASUFO and Denys Breysse, Project Becassine).

1970 -  On this night a disc-shaped object was seen in the sky over a farm in Rouillac, Charente district, France followed by a flash. The next day a big hole in the ground was found in a field on the farm, and some soil was missing. (Sources: Ion Hobana and Julien Weverbergh, UFOs from Behind the Iron Curtain, p. 64; Lumieres dans la Nuit, October 1970).

1974 -  A UFO with a red light on top, and with green, orange, yellow and white flashing lights around the middle traveled west to east over the Deschutes River Canyon, then stopped over Grass Valley, north of Madras, Oregon at 1:30 a.m. It was joined by a second object. That night a UFO with a multi-colored ring of lights was seen descending slowly near Route V eight miles south of Sedalia, Missouri. It disappeared behind a ridge at 8:20 p.m., and may have landed remotely. (Sources: (1) Bend Bulletin, January 9, 1974; (2) Ted R. Phillips, Skylook,  February 1974, p. 13).

1976 -   Jean Dolecki, age 55, was driving home after sunset at 7:10 p.m. near Echevis, Isere department, France when a luminous object appeared in the sky and landed 100 yards away in a farm field beside the road. It had the form of a "coffee pot", a 50-60 foot high cylinder with a narrow waist, the upper portion larger than the lower one, and was about 40 to 45 feet in diameter. From the bottom a bright white light turned on, which illuminated it. The top surface seemed to be vibrating, and on each side near the top was attached a relatively small vertical helix, which also vibrated. A door opened in the upper portion, and three beings that looked like “robots” resembling “aluminum diving suits,” 6.5-7.0 feet tall, descended. They had square heads, disproportionately small legs, and in lieu of arms, a telescopic “pole” about 7 feet long, mounted on their chests. These entities moved about near the UFO for about ten minutes, walking in a mechanical manner and wagging their poles up and down. They then re-entered, and the machine took off, disappearing at a rapid speed. (Sources: Gil Bil Helaar, Skylook, May 1976, p. 4; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1976-16 (A1445), citing Gil Helaar).

1978 - Two members of the Gould family were sitting in their living room in South Middleton, Massachusetts at 7:30 p.m. when they saw an approaching large yellow ball of light angling towards the ground through their window. One of them ran out the back door to glimpse the object disappear behind some trees. Telephone interference was experienced in the home at about this time. Later one of the children in an upstairs bedroom reported seeing a white figure at the foot of his bed that tried to touch him. Moments later the father heard a noise coming from an empty room, and when he went to investigate he then heard a noise at the window. Pulling back the curtains, he saw a white figure standing on top of the back porch roof, only four feet away. The figure was hooded and seemed to be wearing a mask. Later while investigating a noise at the door to the front porch he again saw the white suited figure standing just outside the glass door. (Sources: David F.

Hall & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1905).

1979 -  At three o'clock in the morning a milkman at the Willow Grove Exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania suddenly encountered a bright orange circular UFO hovering over his truck. It vanished abruptly. Other witnesses reported UFO sightings in Norristown, Lower Merion, and Lower Gwynedd, Pennsylvania. (Source: King of Prussia Today's Post, January 11, 1979).

1979 -  Three police officers driving on a highway in Castel D'Asso, Latium, Italy saw a 10 meter in diameter glowing disc-shaped object at or near the ground at 5:30 a.m. They tried to use their two-way radios but experienced radio interference. The saucer shaped craft rose to one meter altitude and moved away rapidly in a horizontal direction. (Source: Verga Maurizio, ITACAT, case # 143).

1979 -  A domed ovoid-shaped UFO chased a car driving along Route 26 for three hours between Tacuarembo, Argentina and Melo, Uruguay during the day. There were four people in the car, two of them police. The UFO changed color and brightness, from red to bluish white, formed over a base ring of plasma. It made no sound. (Source: Jane Thomas, UFO Newspaper Clipping Service, April 1979, p. 14, citing El Heraldo, January 17, 1979 & La Razon, January 12, 1979).

1984 - Mr. & Mrs. Sprinster had a close encounter with a multi-colored triangular shaped UFO 10 miles west of Torrington, Connecticut on Route 4 at 9:30 p.m. The object moved very slowly, and dropped in altitude to pace their car. Its underside was criss-crossed with tubes and grill work. A red light in the center of the object detached, circled the object three times, then returned back to its original position. It left by making a sharp turn to the south. The encounter lasted 10 minutes. (Source: Philip J. Imbrogno, Contact of the 5th Kind, p. 9).

1984 - Two witnesses in a car driving north of Hawthorne, New Jersey at 9:33 p.m. saw two silent 75-foot in diameter parabolic discs 200 feet above SR 208. The objects seemed to be avoiding being seen by passing cars. (Source: Robert Gribble, MUFON UFO Journal, December 1983, p. 5).

1984 -  At 7:30 p.m. a metallic object described as blimp like with red lights buzzed two cars on US Highway 395 south of Pearsonville, near the China Lake Weapons Center in Kern County on a clear night. At 10:30 p.m. several independent witnesses reported seeing a huge silent cigar shaped object over the highway on SR 14 15 miles north of Mojave, Kern County, California. It was only 100 feet over the road and had red lights on the bottom; it flew off to the north. (Sources: (1) APRO Bulletin, November 1984, p. 1; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 14071; (2) Robert Gribble, MUFON UFO Journal, December 1984, p. 5).

1986 -  Multiple cars stopped along Interstate 84 in Hartford, Connecticut at 9:00 p.m. to watch a silent boomerang-shaped object, estimated to be the size of a Boeing 747, with white, red, blue and green lights as it moved low through sky, then hovered for 15 seconds before heading off to the west. The boomerang seen over Hartford and New Britain was also seen by dozens of witnesses in Torrington, Connecticut. A family reported the UFO, with 10 white lights, hovered directly over their house, engulfing their home in a brilliant white light. They were so frightened they fled to the basement. (Sources: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 14294, citing Dale Goudie, CUFON; Philip J. Imbrogno, Contact of the 5th Kind, pp. 5-7).

1993, Popudinske Mocadliny, Slovakia - The witness saw first an orange ball of fire at a minute before midnight, resting in a field. Later they saw a flying triangle only 30 cm in diameter that landed on top of a nearby pigeon house. A door opened and a tiny smoky humanoid exited the object. Two weeks later the witness saw a similar humanoid in his bedroom. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, citing Dr. Milos Jesensky).

1995 -  A young girl noticed lights outside her house in Marion, New York at 3:30 a.m. She then saw a four-foot tall humanoid being and weird lights in the yard. (Source: Peter Davenport, UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, January 1995 webpage).

1999 -  A black disc-shaped object, 10 meters in diameter, hovered over houses in the town of Cava Dei Tirreni, Campania, Italy at 10:30 p.m. The UFO circled the town twice, then flew away. (Source: Joseph Trainor, UFO Roundup, January 25, 1999).
