1944 - An object was allegedly shot down by the U.S. military as it attempted to depart from the island of Oahu, Hawaii near Kaneohe. One female occupant was captured and flown to Washington, DC. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A0122).

In 1947 during the beginning days of the great UFO wave of 1947, a rapidly moving, round, silvery-white object was seen at 11:30 a.m. in the town of Greenfield, Massachusetts. It was one of the early cases secretly investigated by the FBI. Later that same day, at 1 o'clock in the afternoon, Mr. Hammond and his son were vacationing in Radium Springs, New Mexico and saw a "flying pie-plate" disc while swimming. (Sources: Bruce S. Maccabee, UFO Related Information from the FBI File, APRO Bulletin, December 1977, pg. 8; Baker, Oregon Democrat Herald, June 27, 1947).

In Oak Ridge, Tennessee on this evening in 1949, a teacher, a scientist, and one other watched two delta-shaped UFOs and a disc fly over the US government nuclear research facility around 7 p.m.. The objects appeared to be metallic, and flew slowly toward the northwest. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 1415).

Near the Korean front in 1952, two sergeants sighted an orange disc four feet in diameter just above an airstrip. It dove vertically, emitting a red flame 2-5 feet long as it did so, and stopped momentarily 100 feet over the end of the runway. The object then flew to the west, circled back taking about 45 to 60 seconds to execute the 180-degree turn, flashed, the flew on to the east. A second bright flash was seen followed by complete darkness: the disc had vanished. No sound was heard coming from the object. The case was unexplained by Project Blue Book. (Source: J. Allen Hynek, The Hynek UFO Report, p. 82).

1953 - At 2:10 a.m. the pilot and radar operator of a USAF F-94 jet interceptor flying from Goose AFB, Labrador, Canada sighted a red light flying at an estimated 1,000 knots (1,100 mph). The object eluded the pursuing F-94 after five minutes. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

1954 - At around 9 p.m. U.S. Marine Corps Major E. Buchser and Major J. V. Wilkins In Miami Beach, Florida witnessed a meteor-like object descend, stop, and become extremely bright. Sighting lasted 7 minutes. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

Also in 1954 an eighty-foot long blimp-shaped UFO drifted over Cleveland, Ohio at 300 feet altitude. The object veered up sharply and shot away after about 5-10 seconds. (Source: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics).

1957 - Two patrolmen at Rye, New York watched a large object with two white lights and one red light plunge into Long Island Sound. (Source: Ivan T. Sanderson, Invisible Residents, p. 39).

1960 - A strange flying object struck Clan Lake, which is located some 30 miles north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada at around 6 p.m. About 20-25 minutes after a airplane had dropped off witness C. T. Wright, he heard a noise that sounded like a large plane in the distance. The noise got louder but he could not see anything in the sky. He then heard something strike the water behind him and saw an object with arms or spokes rotating in the water. It was rotating very rapidly and throwing water, but gradually it began to spin less and finally stopped. It was about 1700 feet away from him. When his partner arrived they took a canoe and went over to the shallow spot in the lake where the object hit the water. There was grass about 18 inches high were the object hit and it appeared to be burnt and cut up over an area of 20 feet by 60 feet. They felt around in the water with their paddles where the floor of the lake was very much disturbed and muddy, and one to three feet deeper than the surrounding lake proper. The object looked to be about 4-6 feet wide. Mr. Wright did not see any steam when the object hit the water. He and his partner went back to the location on two more occasions but could find nothing.

1969 - Ms. Terry Ennshyman reportedly encountered a "robot" type humanoid in Dunedin, New Zealand who conducted her onboard a landed disc-shaped UFO. He or it then had sex with her several times. The robot had cold extremities and a cold penis, but does not lack "warmth" and sweetness despite his constant guttural sounds. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1969, citing Annuaire CIGU 1988, quoting Dunedin Telegraph, in Denys Breysse Project Becassine).

1976, Guia de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands (Spain) - Three men in a taxi observed a gray-colored, perfect sphere at 9:30 p.m. which hovered a few meters above the ground. The taxi's radio stopped working and the witnesses felt very cold. Inside the sphere, which was transparent, they saw two humanoids about three meters tall, wearing reddish, tight-fitting clothing. The driver switched on a spotlight and pointed it at the object, which rose up about 30 feet and emitted a bluish gas. It then grew as large as a 20-story building, though the two humanoids and their control panels remained their original size. After a few minutes, the huge object flew away, giving off a whistling sound. People in a nearby house reported that their TV had stopped working during the sighting.

In the town of Galdar on the island of Las Palmas also in the Canary Islands, at 10:30 p.m., an electric-blue semi-transparent sphere with two tall entities inside was seen hovering for 20 minutes. The object then changed size enormously, growing in size to the equivalent of a twenty-story building. On that same night a photograph of another UFO was taken near Maspalomas on the neighboring island of Tenerife. A close encounter with a UFO emitting beams of light also occurred earlier in Bothwell, Tasmania around 7:30 p.m. local time.

1979 - On this afternoon offshore of Gorgona, Italy in the Ligurian Sea during a beautiful summer day, the yacht Rainbow II was heading for Corsica, after leaving Viareggio at 3:45 p.m. On board was the owner of the boat, who was a businessman in Milano, his wife and children and a crew of 11 people. At about 6:30 p.m. the beautiful and tranquil day was interrupted by a bewildering and disturbing event. About three miles ahead of the prow of the boat they saw a black cylindrical shape. This object was coming out from the surface of the sea like a tower and rose 30 meters into the air. The yacht approached and they noticed the dimensions and shape of the object. When they were within 1.5 miles from the object, it disappeared below the surface with a loud rumble in less than three seconds. This sighting was also observed from the harbormaster's office on Livorno. The harbor captain remained in continuous radio contact with the crew and in particular with its wireless operator, Mr. Guzzi. But this phenomenon did not end with the disappearance of the object. Although the compass showed the yacht as headed in the right direction, the yacht instead drifted about 12 miles south and ended up in Bastia. This change of course was unexplainable because the sea was calm, there were no currents, and the compass was working perfectly. Another strange occurrence was that the dog on board started barking and appeared scared and terrified.

In 1981 at 10:35 a.m. the fire lookout at the Satus Peak fire tower on the Yakima Indian Reservation in central Washington State saw a slow moving light descend in the sky, moving toward the northwest. The light entered a long, thin cloud, and never exited. At about the same time a large orange glow filled the windshield of a motorist and family in Forreston, South Australia pulsing on and off once a second. They drove under the source of the light and then it vanished.

In 1984, an object shaped like the rounded-off "tail fin" of an airplane with a very short fuselage came straight down over a woman's car in her driveway in Adelanto, California at 11 o'clock in the morning. She watched it hover 125 yards away as it wobbled and made a "fluttering" motion. On the same night a videotape showing six lights in a crucifix formation was made in Montrose, New York just eight miles south-southeast of West Point. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, December 1984, p. 8; J. Allen Hynek and Philip J. Imbrogno, Night Seige: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings, p. 200).

At 10:30 p.m. in 2000 near Providence, Rhode Island a westbound commercial airliner flying at 8,000 feet altitude observed an egg-shaped object standing on end. The top and bottom of the object was spiked with three points each. Air traffic control confirmed the presence of a radar target one mile from the aircraft. It drifted toward the east until it was lost from radar. (Source: UFO Magazine, December 2000, p. 32).

2003 - A shiny object, not well defined, fell into the sea between Martinsicuro and San Benedetto del Tronto in the Adriatic Sea just before 9:00 p.m. Many telephone calls came into the fire department of Teramo, the Port Authority of San Benedetto, Italy and to the Maritime Offices of Giulianova, Italy. Some spoke of a possible meteorite, judging from the form and color of the object, which dove into the ocean at some distance from shore. Immediately the alarm was sounded and the military police from Alba got involved. A motorboat was sent from San Benedetto, which reached the location where the object plunged into the sea but they were not able to find anything.
