Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1951 - A metallic disc-shaped object, looking like aluminum, appeared to stand motionless in the sky when it was sighted by two military pilots flying between Orange and Aspres Buech, France at 10:37 a.m. in a French Air Force Vampire jet. It then accelerated away. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 14).
1955 - A cigar-shaped craft zoomed over the town of Anita,
Iowa at an altitude under 1000 feet at 9:47 p.m. It was luminous
with a white and blue glow, and red exhaust. It made a hissing sound. The
file on the case is missing from the US Air Force records. (Sources:
Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, June 1955; Jacques
Vallee, Anatomy of a Phenomenon, p. 103).
1964 - A miner, R. A. Donoso, driving a car 20 kilometers from
Arica, Chile saw a strange machine land. It was 10 feet long and
3.5 feet wide. Two fair-skinned men emerged from the craft. They spoke in
a mixture of Spanish and English, and asked for water. Donoso took some
water from his car radiator for them and they left. The UFO left by
ascending vertically into the sky. (Sources: Gordon Creighton, The
Humanoids: FSR Special Edition No. 1, p. 39; Jacques Vallee,
Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 614).
1964 - At 11:10 p.m. a 25 foot in diameter domed disc with a red
light on the bottom hovered 20 feet away and at only 20 feet above the
ground of a 20-year-old man name Angelos in Lynn, Massachusetts. It
gave off a vapor and made a whining noise. The man was temporarily
paralyzed during the encounter, which lasted over a minute. (Sources:

1965 - On this evening a bluish 40-foot disc-shaped object with illuminated portholes was seen in Smithfield, Queensland, Australia. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 154).
1967 - On this evening a couple in Lexington, Michigan who reported seeing strange lights on Lake Huron told the Sheriff Department that they spotted an object resembling a "submarine with what appeared to be a Russian insignia" as well as what seemed to be figures of men dressed in frogman's suits. The woman shone a light towards in the direction of the craft and it submerged. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1967, citing Shadow Research Inc.).
1971 - Tony Wilkens, a young military Vietnam veteran, told Alton, Illinois police that at 8:55 this evening a 50-foot "velvet silver" UFO with radiating green lights hovered outside his second story back porch. Two humanoid occupants of the craft "made contact" with him by mental telepathy, and they reportedly gave him a formula that would provide "the universe at his fingerprints," which he wrote out for the police. The UFOnauts also invited him to take a ride in the UFO, but he refused. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1971-19, citing Neal C. Butler for APRO).
1973 - A man and his daughter were driving near West Bend, Wisconsin when they sighted a low hovering disc-shaped object with several transparent windows. Humanoid figures could be seen behind the windows. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1973, case #847, citing Richard Heiden, FSR, Vol. 27 # 6).
1981 - A physicist watched an uneven line of six orange UFOs fly silently by the town of Fuzhou, Fujian Province, China at 7:00 p.m. (Source: Wendelle Stevens & Paul Dong, UFOs over Modern China, p. 221).
1982 - At around 9:30 p.m. a fireball with an odd shape flew
rapidly toward the power plant in Romeoville, Illinois. It stopped
and hovered, then flew away fast toward the west. (Source; Larry Hatch, U
computer database, case #14404, citing MUFON UFO Journal, issue
1984 - On a partially cloudy day, at 4:12 p.m., 20 nautical miles east of the Straits of Gibraltar in the Mediteranean Sea the crew of the tanker Gori watched a disc-shaped object maneuver and pace their ship. The 25 meter in diameter disc had a rotating red dome, and a rosy neon glow from what looked like a cylindrical "tailpipe". The UFO was gleaming with a grayish metallic shine. The lower portion of the craft had a precise round shape, its diameter no more than twenty meters. Around the lower portion of it they also observed "waves" of protuberances on the outside plating.
The base of the object's body consisted of two semi-discs, the smaller being on top; they slowly revolved in opposing directions. At the circumference of the lower disc Globa saw numerous shining, bright bead-like lights. The seaman's attention was centered on the bottom portion of the UFO. It looked as if it was completely even and smooth, its color yellow like that of an egg yolk, with three pie-shaped spots, and in the middle of it they discerned a round, nucleus-like stain. At the edge of the UFO's bottom, which was easily visible, was something that looked like a pipe. It glowed with an unnaturally bright rosy color, like a neon lamp. The top of the middle disc was crowned by a triangular-shaped something. It seemed that it moved in the same direction as the lower disc, but at a much slower pace. Suddenly the UFO jumped up several times, as if moved by an invisible wave. Many lights illuminated its bottom portion. The crew of GORI tried to attract the object's attention using a signal projector. By this time Captain Sokolovky was on the deck with his men. He and his Second-in-Command watched the object intensely. However, the UFO appeared to be distracted by another ship, approaching at the port side. It was an Arab dry cargo ship, on its way to Greece. The Arabs confirmed that the object hovered over their ship. A minute and a half later the object changed its flight's trajectory, listed to the right, gained speed and ascended rapidly. The Soviet seamen observed that when it rose through the clouds, appearing and disappearing again, it would occasional shine in the sun's rays. The craft then flared up, like a spark, and was gone instantly.

East of Gibraltar, Mediteranean Sea - 1984
1991 - At around 6 p.m. the two witnesses had gone into the woods outside the Gainesville Job Corps Center in Gainesville, Florida. As they were walking towards a campsite, one of the men stopped and claimed to have seen two "werewolf" like beings float by. The other witness did not see this. They continued walking until they spotted a saucer-shaped object on the ground. They advanced towards the object slowly when it suddenly disappeared. An uncontrollable fear then took hold of them and they began running away from the area. One of the men looked over his shoulder to see a tall, dark, large-headed being wearing a dark robe with its hand folded in front of it. The men did not stop and did not return to the area. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1991, case # 3189, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).
1993 - An orange nocturnal light paralleled a car into Colborne, Ontario at 8:30 a.m. Two small lights were accompanying the orange light. They made no sound as they flew. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, August 1993).
1994 - At 5:30 p.m. Karen Manning was busy cooking in her second
floor apartment in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and
had kept the window opened in order to keep an eye on her children playing
outside. Suddenly everything went very quiet and the children were nowhere
in sight. Dashing downstairs, she found the four children huddled together
inside the apartment entrance. They told her they had seen a large
disc-shaped craft flying low over the nearby highway. It was shiny-gold in
color and emitted a whistling sound. The object had windows, through which
they could see two blond haired females looking out. These two women had
panicky expressions on their faces and appeared to have tape covering
their mouths. The children also saw a humanoid figure standing at a
door-like entrance to the object. He was described as greenish in color
with long pointed ears. He also had a third eye in the middle of the
forehead that emitted a blue light. A beam of light descended from the
craft and chased one of the girls, lifting her six inches from the ground.
She also heard a voice inside her head. The craft then moved away in a
northwesterly direction. The children felt extremely hungry after the
incident. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1994, case
# 2752, citing UFOBC Canada).
