 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 January 17

1967 - Mr. F. Bedel, age 23, was driving on Route 135 about 8 kilometers north of Freetown, Indiana on this night when he saw a plate-shaped object with red, yellow, blue and white blinking lights. He lost control of his car and ran off the road. Less than two kilometers away and at about the same time, Phil Patton saw an identical object that came within 30 meters of his car.

1967 - A woman walking home in Romieres, France at 6:45 p.m. saw a beam of light, about one meter in width, sweep across the ground in her direction. It came from a circular, white object that turned off its main light. She then saw reddish spots before it vanished entirely. Another witness saw the phenomenon from a separate location, two kilometers away. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 811).

1968 -- Linda, a young woman, was on her way to Junior Achievement class in Ipswich, Massachusetts at around 6:30 p.m. when suddenly some bright lights in the sky attracted her attention. She looked up and saw a cigar-shaped object hovering overhead with bright flashing lights. She watched as it came down several hundred feet from her and stopped about 150 feet from the ground. The UFO made no noise and had a solid row of red and green lights going on and off in sequence along its midsection. It also had five steady bright white lights spaced evenly along the top section. Linda walked closer just before the UFO rose upm to a higher altitude, levelled off, and then moved away into the distance. She saw a tall man in a dark coat and a dark brimmed hat, who had been standing closer to the object. When she called out to him he turned and ran down the darkened street. (Sources: Raymond E. Fowler, UFO Testament; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1968).

1995 - The witness was driving in her car at the corner of Congress and Gateway in Boynton Beach, Florida at 5:10 a.m. when she saw a seven foot tall brownish being with long stringy arms and legs on the side of the road. It also had an elongated head and dark eyes. At the same time a transparent craft, shaped like a multi-sided crystal, with two other beings inside, "tumbled" across the road about 60 feet in front of her car. The witness slammed on her brakes and when she turned to look again both the object and the humanoid were gone. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1995, case # 2821, citing Skyscan, August 1997).

2000 - At 4:30 a.m. in Columbia, Kentucky the witness awoke with a start and noticed a very bright light coming through the window. It was most white but also red and green, and it hurt his eyes. He also heard a loud pulsating sound. Looking toward the window he saw the outline of a figure, the size of a little boy, but it was gone in an instant. The terrified witness covered his head with his blanket and began to pray. After ten minutes the sound and the lights went away. Others in the area had seen low flying objects over their farms around the same time. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2000, case # 3612, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).
