Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1947 - On this evening around 9 p.m. a dazzling fireball was seen over Bombay, India. Then a round blue ball of light appeared, surrounded by smaller objects orbiting it. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 652, citing Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A History. 1947 (2nd edition), p. 36).
1952 - At 8:42 a.m. local time a UFO traveled at 300 mph in a straight line while revolving. It stopped over airfield K-14 at Kimpo, Korea. Next it rose straight up for ten seconds, disappearing from sight. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, NICAP UFO Investigator, January 1958, p. 24; Richard F.

1956, Banning, California - At 5:30 a.m. PDT Mr. Bierman watched a thin disc with a small dome on top, shimmering silver, hover about 30 yards up and 100 yards away for 8-10 seconds. It crossed the road slowly, turned, and crossed the road again behind his car. It then suddenly shot straight up.

1957 - At five o'clock in the afternoon a silver disc was seen hovering over Dixons Corners, Ontario at an estimated altitude of 8,000 meters. That night a fireball descended over San Felipe, Venezuela but stopped in midair. It came down between two hills, then rose up and flew away. Also that evening, around 10 p.m. two friends out stargazing saw seven perfectly circular objects fly over Hicksville, New York.

1959 - Several members of a safari in the Australian outback near Nourlange, Northern Territory watched a red disc descend fast, then stop and hover for 30 seconds. It shot straight up into the clouds and illuminated the clouds a reddish color. (Source: Loren E. Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History, 1959: April-June, p. 46).
1964 - A reddish orange rectangular object with a lower appendage was seen low over a road in Rio Choromoro, Argentina at 9:30 p.m. It had black stripes and two vanes rotating in a clockwise direction. It was also surrounded by smoke or vapor. It absorbed a smaller object a few meters above the road. (Source: FSR Case Histories, December 1973, p. 18).
1965 - Private aircraft pilot Mr. C. Adams, and a television cameraman Mr. Les Hendy, reported seeing four or five “mysterious objects” floating in the sea 3 miles east of Fraser Island, 150 miles north of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia at about 11.30 a.m. Mr. Adams first noticed two of the objects from a distance of about 8 miles while flying over Fraser Island. The weather was clear and the objects appeared to resemble two big dark-coloured logs. They were narrow and up to 100 feet long. As he steered toward them two or three similar but smaller objects appeared near the other two. They did not appear to move, but seemed to “sort of submerge" when the plane was about one mile away from them. From the air they appeared to be lying just below the surface and when “submerging” from sight seemed to do so without disturbing the surface. Mr. Adams was certain that the objects were too big to be fish or sharks, and the wrong shape to be whales. Mr. Hendy regretted that they were too far away from him to film them. Several experts got their heads together and decided that the objects sighted were migrating whales. However, their explanation was soon squashed when part-owner of the Seabrae Hotel--Mr. G. Sampson--and Mrs. V. Grady reported that they had sighted a similar object on the very same day, half-a-mile out between Redcliffe Pier and Redcliffe Point. They watched it for 10 minutes. It was long and black and there appeared to be a black balloon suspended over it. A Fisheries Dept. spokesman commented that it was unlikely to be a whale, because they very seldom come into Morton Bay. (Source: H. J. Hinfelaar, “Submarine Craft in Australian Waters”, Flying Saucer Review, July-August 1966, p. 29).
1966 - At 9:30 p.m. in Spooner, Wisconsin Ms. Dorothy Gray sighted two domed discs with sparkling upper surfaces and square windows on their tops hovered revolved above a lake, causing a strange turbulence on the surface of the lake. The sighting lasted 25 seconds. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 10626; Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).
1967 - At 1:30 a.m. a strange object buzzed a car near Itajuba, Brazil and the car's motor and headlights then failed. The object was mushroom-shaped. The witness also saw the faces of humanoids through the transparent front of the UFO. It flew away and the car could be restarted. (Sources: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 205, citing FSR, Vol. 14, No. 6; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, p. 251).

Bernard Delair, UFO Register, volume 5, 1974, case 289).
1974 - The witness to an earlier report of humanoids in Warneton, Belgium from January 7, 1974 saw the same two entities again. At 8:40 p.m. his car engine sputtered and the cassette player stopped working. He felt an electric shock, then heard a sound, and the beings vanished. At 9:30 EDT, less than seven hours later in Southampton, Massachusetts four men and women saw a domed object with multicolored lights and a bobbing motion, descend near a road. The witnesses fled in fear.

1975 - At 1:30 a.m. a car driving between Marcenat and Moulet, France encountered a 30-meter wide ball of light hovering only 15 meters above the ground. It gave off an unpleasant odor, and the witness's car radio stopped working. One half hour later a white luminous ovoid-shaped object was spotted near a farm six kilometers west of Meymans, France. A burglar alarm went off at around the same time. (Source: Michel Figuet and Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le Premier Dossier Complet des Rencontres Rapprochees en France, pp. 554 & 556).

1977 - A disc with red, orange, and green colored lights hovered for 20 minutes over the Wangara Valley, New Zealand. It had a white band across the middle, and vanished after several seconds.
1977 - Later than same night near Barnard Castle in England both a car and a motorcycle lost power in the presence of at least two purplish ovoid UFOs. A 16-year-old motorcyclist saw two purple objects for 30 seconds along the side of the road. A pinkish-purple object, shaped like an oval meat dish, suddenly appeared over his cycle and an approaching car. The engines of both vehicles began to lose power. Both vehicles were dragged twenty-five feet along the highway not under their own power. The motorcyclist also felt increased heat and the motorcycle's metal body became hot to the touch. The object then suddenly disappeared. The next day, the brakes on the cycle were found to be abnormally worn. (Sources: FSR, February 1978, p. 6; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 411, citing FSR).
1979 - An alleged abduction experience by aliens occurred this afternoon near Dubois, Wyoming. While camping in a wilderness area the witness looked up towards a clear spot in the clouds and then lost trackof time. He found himself in a large room while a being surrounded by light stood at his side. He remembers looking back at his body and seemingly walking on air toward a network of wires. At that point someone placed a helmet on his head and he had a sensation of expanded consciousness and a rushing in of information. He could look down and see the ground from his viewpoint in the air. A being nexted touched a small device to different points on his arm. He conversed with the beings about the nature of happiness and helping others. (Source: Thomas E. Bullard, UFO Abductions: The Measure of a Mystery, volume I: A comparative study of abductions, case 211, citing Dr. Leo R. Sprinkle).
