 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 June 20

1952 - Central Korea. At 3:03 p.m. four Marine Corps Captains and pilots of F4U-4B Corsair fighter planes of the 7302nd Squadron sighted a 10-20 foot diameter white to silver oval object for 60 seconds. The daylight UFO made a left-hand orbit of the target area, and then shot away to the east outdistancing pursuit aircraft at a terrific speed.

1953 - Brush Creek, California. John Q. Black, one of two miners who witnessed a landing and humanoid at Brush Creek on May 20th of this year, witnessed a complete repetition of the scene, including the "little man" with the pail of water. The little man was dressed in a suit like a parka, and he descended from a 8-foot wide landed lens-shaped silver craft with tripod landing gear. The "midget" scooped up a pail of water, saw that he was being watched, then scurried back to the craft and zoomed away. His partner Mr. John Van Allen only saw the tripod landing gear marks, which were about 30 cm wide and resembled "elephant tracks."

1958 - At 11:05 p.m. Fort Bragg, North Carolina Battalion Communication Chief SFC A. Parsley observed a silver, circular object, its lower portion seen through a green haze, hover, then oscillate slightly, and then move away at great speed. He watched it for 10 minutes.

1967 - Farmer Arvi Juntunen in Suomussalmi, Finland heard a loud humming sound at noon and saw a round, shiny gray object 50 cm above ground, 6 meters away. It had a domed top with a fin and measured 75 cm in diameter. As he was about to seize it, the object rose with a blast, circled and flew away. (Sources: Gordon Creighton, FSR, May-June 1968, p. 25; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 851).

1968 - Eustaqui Zogorwski, age 63, a Polish immigrant, claimed that on this date he was drugged by a man who drove up to his house in Avellaneda, Buenos Aires, Argentina in a black car. When he recovered consciousness he found himself in an otherworldly environment, where giant beings were dwelling in an aerial city.Two of these beings, over two meters tall, conducted Mr. Zogorwski to a tower in the center of the city, seemingly suspended in space. He was seated at a table around which sat 12 similar giants. They took his arms and he began to "trace signs automatically." He believed that they had "brainwashed" him. He was finally released between the towns of Brinkmann and Cotagaita, in Cordoba province, where the mysterious man in the black car picked him up and drove him to his home. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-35 (A0936), citing La Nacion, August 7, 1968).

1968 - Peasants in Bulnes Nuble, Chile saw a five-foot tall being with a white head and torso, from whose arms wings extended. It was sighted several times in the vicinity of the village.

1969 - On this evening numerous witnesses in and around the Michigan City, Indiana area, bordering Lake Michigan, saw a series of multi-colored, maneuvering lights for a period of at least two hours. Among the witnesses were policemen, Coast Guardsmen, a harbor patrolman, a local newspaper photographer, and an electronics engineer. The first report was at 9:35 p.m. "The objects appeared solid and yet were a source of their own light," US Coast Guardsman Vernon Kleman stated. "They appeared as if from nowhere and could brighten up to a size much larger than when originally seen. They moved at a variety of speeds, some fast, some slow and at times they were stationary for a minute or more...The objects were colored white, green or orange and they changed colors at will." A roughly oval-shaped UFO appeared to have a rotating rim with red, green and yellow lights around its center. Increasing in intensity, the object was in view for about a minute before it "quickly diminished in size and brilliance" and disappeared. "Once a smaller object seemed to enter the water," Kleman continued. "It was submerged for 4-6 seconds. Then it traveled straight upward at an excessive speed."

At 10:25 members of the Michigan City Police Department and Port Authority began seeing the UFOs. Robert G. Howington, harbor policeman, said the objects he saw disappeared to the "northwest with terrific speed." Officer Ted Stantz saw lights that erratically "went back and forth across the sky." Policeman James R. Coughlin and others saw the objects at the same time. "We saw about 9 or 10 such objects over a span of about two hours," Police Sgt. Lance M. Hilberg stated in his report to NICAP. "One seemed to approach very close. The others were quite high and very distant. All objects appeared very bright and solid. The closest one was extremely bright [and] faded away at tremendous speed--much faster than any aircraft..."

Officer Tony C. Ragle said he was cruising in his squad car when he got a call to assist personnel at the Port Authority. Looking through his windshield, he saw the large bright object that "hovered over Lake Michigan for approximately 90 seconds, then went up and darted toward Chicago.” Bill Allen, a photographer-reporter for The Michigan City News-Dispatch, saw an object over the lakefront at 11:30 p.m. It looked like an upside down saucer with a pulsating red light around the bottom. The top was an orange-yellow color. The objects were also viewed over Gary, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois. (Source: Bill Laas, NICAP UFO Investigator, September-October 1969, p. 1).

1974 - Several hundred witnesses including 15 police saw a luminous cigar-shaped object fly back and forth over the city of Sao Bernardo da Campo, Sao Paulo state, Brazil at 7:30 p.m. It reportedly responded to light signals. (Source: Inforespace, October 1975).

1975 - A luminous globe, described also like a large incandescent ball, was seen to fall into the sea some miles off the coast of the port of Genova, Italy. The report arrived from a geophysicist of the university that was completing normal surveys and that had immediately signaled the fact to the National Fire Departments. (Source: Marco Bianchini, USOCAT by Italian Center for UFO Studies (CISU), citing Liberta, June 22, 1975 and La Stampa, June 21, 1975).

1976 - The alien abduction of a 19-year-old married couple and their infant occurred at around one o'clock in the morning, from their car while driving on I-70 five miles west of Colby, Kansas. The Delduca family reported they had encountered a UFO that was a 150-foot wide saucer-shaped craft that stood 40 feet tall. They initially had several hours of missing time, but were able to recall their experience through the aid of hypnotic regression. They recalled that there were three 5.0 to 5.5 foot tall humanoids, matching the description of short Grey humanoids, wearing helmets. They were given physical exams and communicated with via telepathy. They had body marks and rashes subsequent to their encounter.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1477; International UFO Reporter, December 1976, p. 12).

1977 - A year later another abduction occurred, this time from a bedroom in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Gayle Bever recalled under hypnosis that during a two hour period of missing time she had been taken from her bedroom shortly before midnight by human-looking beings wearing coveralls. She was also given a physical exam. She has a small circular scar, 1 cm in diameter, on her shoulder in the shape of a wheel with spokes. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, November 1977, p. 1; R. Leo Sprinkle, MUFON Conference Proceedings: 1980, p. 57; Thomas E. Bullard, UFO Abductions: The Measure of a Mystery, case 142, citing APRO Bulletin).

1986 - At 4 a.m. Cesar Locatelli was driving through a brushy isolated area in Mentrux-en-Joux, Jura, France searching for a swarm of wild bees he believed was nearby when he made a turn under some trees and came upon a large transparent, brightly illuminated bluish disc-shaped object partly resting on top of a large boulder. The disc was about 9 meters in diameter. Inside the object he could clearly see six human-like figures of short to average height, perhaps 5 feet tall. These figures were wearing white hooded tunics with cowls like the kind worn by monks. These covered their heads and obscured their faces. They all were standing around an oval table, apparently bent over it. He attempted to drive away but his car engine stalled. At the same time he could hear a high-pitched humming sound. He was finally able to restart the car and drove away. When he returned to the site several months later he was surprised to see that the large boulder was gone.

1989 - At noon two girls in Lesozavodsk, Siberia, Russia encountered a strange being that floated above the ground towards them. It left a silvery trail behind him that faded slowly. The creature was described as humanoid but robot-like in appearance, and it had silvery gray hair. As it passed the girls it emitted a strange squeaking sound and a bright light in their direction which caused one of them a headache. A number of bus passengers also saw the humanoid. As it passed in front of a car it turned a strange silvery color. It continued on and disappeared towards a nearby bridge. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1989, case # 670, citing Yaroslavl Investigations, FSR, Volume 35, No. 3).

2002 - Another missing time experience was reported in Landover, Maryland to the National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, June 2002 webpage archive).
