On This Day

 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 June 7

On this day in 1952, at 4:00 a.m., security guards watched a light hover at 1,000 feet over the 5th Air Force Base near Seoul, South Korea. The light bobbed in the sky, then rose rapidly to the east, changing colors as it went. Several hours later, at 11:18 a.m. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a rectangular-shaped, aluminum colored object followed a B-25 bomber during its flight. Both of these reports were listed by Project Blue Book as "unidentified" cases. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, cases #1259 and #1260; (2) Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 16).

On this day in 1954, while driving between Indio and Brawley, California on US highway 99, a witness spotted a 12-meter diameter metallic disc hovering one mile above Mount Superstition for more than 15 minutes. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue no. 339).

1958 - A red glow appeared over the mountains in Mount Egmont, New Zealand at 9:30 p.m. A white ovoid object shot up, stopped, then shot off horizontally to the northwest passing over the heads of the witnesses.

In Scoriton, England on this day in 1965 three glowing beings allegedly appeared to a witness named Bryant one day after the flying saucer contactee George Adamski died. One of the beings calls himself "Yamski." The witness was left with headaches, messages, and a metallic object. (Source: BUFORA Journal, June 1965, p. 10; Eileen Buckle, The Scoriton Mystery).

1967 - At 1:30 a.m. a disc-shaped object with a rectangular protuberance on its underside flew close to an ambulance being driven by Geraldo Baqueiro in Itajuba, Minas Gerais state, Brazil and caused the complete failure of its electrical system. Through a brightly illuminated transparent surface of the object the faces of strange beings, resembling bipedal cat-like creatures with cat-like eyes, stared intently at the stunned witness.

Aleixo, FSR, Vol. 14 # 6; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, A Century of Landings, case 848).

1970 - Shortly after 12:30 a.m., three kilometers northwest of Curico, Chile a Mr. Valenzuela observed an oval-shaped object land and was shocked by the appearance of the two entities who were inside.

1970 - Driving around a sharp curve on the road next to the Towarie Reservoir south of Ouray, Utah, E. Manning saw a triangular UFO with rounded corners coming across the lake that nearly collided with the car. It veered sharply away. It had many colors, mostly green. It moved with the apex of the triangle in front, with two exhaust jets in back. (Source: Frank Salisbury, The Utah UFO Display, Appendix case 74).

1973 - At ten o'clock in the evening three people in a car near Sousas, Brazil saw a "fireball" which came toward them and stopped 50 meters away. It was 15 feet in diameter and gave off a yellow light. The engine of the car failed when it was nearby and the witnesses felt "prickly." They also had intense headaches later. The object eventually left and the car could be restarted. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 341, citing FSR Case Histories, SuppIement No. 17)

1974 - A red luminous sphere was seen over Lake George in Goulbourn, New South Wales, Australia at 11:00 p.m. At 3:00 a.m. the next morning dogs began barking and a witness saw a landed UFO and approached to within 300 meters of it. He saw 3-4 very tall (8 feet) beings, who wore glowing silver suits and floated to the ground. They had no facial features. (Source: Keith Basterfield, case investigation files at J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies, dated January 1975).

1976 - At 10:40 p.m. in Cincinnati, Ohio two men witnessed a circular object with revolving white lights while dogs howled in reaction to its presence. The men took 17 photographs. The object disappeared once, then after it reappeared it circled to the west, next to the east, and left the area after ten minutes. (Source: CUFOS News Bulletin, September 1976, p. 5).

1978 - At 8:00 p.m. two flashing yellow lights flew above Amapa, Brazil at an altitude above 35,000 feet. The lights flew parallel to one another, about 100 meters apart, and flew from the south to the northwest at a medium speed. (Source: Bob Pratt, Operacao Prato, www.theblackvault.com).

1990 - At 11:45 p.m. in the farm community of Haymart, Pennsylvania a woman saw a bright light in the sky while driving home. When she reached her home and watched from outside, the ovoid UFO with multicolored lights approached to a close range and directed two white beams at her from the bottom of the object. Meanwhile, her dog barked continuously during the encounter. Her neighbor chased the object away in her truck.

1993 - A silent, nearly transparent, rectangular UFO glided over homes in Sheldon, Vermont at 9:15 p.m. It had two bright lights on one side. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1994).

1994 An RCMP report stated that at 3:30 a.m. in farm country northwest of Gimli, Manitoba, Canada a 300 foot wide, donut or torus shaped object flew over the area to the east at 1500 feet altitude. It had nine to twelve flashing lights around its circumference. (Source: Frank Ducks, 1994 Canadian UFO Survey, case # 58, citing NRC).

1996 - An object described as a silver, on-end goose egg, hovered over the river in Franklin, Georgia on an overcast evening around 7:45 p.m. It was about 50 above the water, and the water below the object did not appear to be disturbed. It was estimated to be about the size of VW Beetle. It moved away slowly as a speed of around 10-15 mph. (Source: John C. Thompson, MUFON file investigation database, case # 970501E).

1997 - On this night there was a near collision over Hertfordshire, England between an Aer Lingus BAe-146 airliner and a unidentified flying object with red, blue and white lights. The object passed close by the aircraft. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 48).

2000 - North of Pine Gap, near Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia at 8:30 p.m. a married couple's dogs barked madly as a disc-shaped object with orange around the edge hovered close by. It lit up the area and was described as looking like "trees were on fire." It hovered, then moved out of sight. (Source: Keith Douglas, Victorian UFO Research Society website).

2000 - On the same day a daylight disc sighting occurred in Marlette, Michigan when an oval object was sighted for about 15 seconds at around 1:00 p.m. The craft was described as a very shiny silver color with vertical and horizontal dividers, making square compartments all around.  (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, June 2000 archived webpage, this report posted March 6, 2001).

2002 - Another daylight disc sighting occurred at 11:45 a.m. in Chatsworth, Los Angeles County, California. It was a large, round domed disc that was seen briefly. It was also described as very shiny with little black jets, and had a small dome on top. The object  was rotating at the time, and made no sound at all.(Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, June 2002 archived webpage).

2008 - On this night in Antioch Community, South Carolina a married couple with many years of aviation experience were returning from some friends' house where they had been watching movies. They were discussing one of the movies when the wife said, "Look at that, what in the world is that?" They saw a black triangular craft in the air with lights and several windows. There was a purple beacon in the center of the bottom, but no position lights or anti-collision lights anywhere on the object. They thought for a moment that it might be a B-2 bomber, but it made no noise at all and after "zooming" up to them it stopped right over their vehicle. About this time they turned onto their private road and made it up to their house. This was around 11:20 p.m. The next thing that either of them remembers was being in the car at 2:24 a.m. in the morning. The car was running but the wife was in the driver’s seat and the husband in the passenger's. Since he is 6’5” and she is 5’7” this meant that his knees were forced into the dashboard.Neither remembers anything whatsoever after parking the car. They do not remember what happened during the lost time, why they were in different positions in the car, or why they were still sitting outside their house with all of the car windows still down and the moon roof open. The husband woke up with a headache the next morning, and his wife felt ill enough to stay in bed for most of the next day. There were other good reports of flying triangles that same night in Brooklyn, Michigan and Mountain View, California.
