Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1947 - A 1:15 p.m. four rocket experts saw a silver saucer in the sky over Organ, New Mexico. It flew off to the north at 9,000 feet altitude. (Source: Ted Bloecher, Report on the UFO Wave of 1947, p. 109).
1947 - About 45 minutes later nine white saucers flying in V-formation flew over Medford, Oregon at a speed of 120 mph. They flew in a spiral over the airport, and appeared to make a cloud. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 729).
1947 - Between 13 and 18 white oval and disc-shaped objects flew over Clarion, Iowa at 4:45 p.m. They made a noise like that of a dynamo. (Source: Richard F. Haines, Project Delta: A Study of Multiple UFO, p. 178).
1952 - On this night three military policemen in Park Ridge, Illinois near O'Hare Airport sighted a thirty foot in diameter disc with a blue glow hovering over two civilian radio towers. It jumped about in the sky for 45 minutes. (Source: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 1364.
1967 - A man and a woman driving at 1:30 a.m. sighted an oyster-shaped UFO near Scotch Plains, New Jersey. It was very large, perhaps 200 feet wide, and 25-30 feet thick. It had three red lights and a row of blue lights. The UFO followed their car for 500 feet, then veered off to the south and took off. A Project Blue Book "unknown." (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 11831; J. Allen Hynek case files; Don Berliner, Australasian UFOlogist, April 1999, p. 55).
1968 - On this evening in San Luis de Palmar, Corrientes, Argentina on Highway 5 a circular flattened disc-shaped object was sighted by three men in their thirties, Senors Sanchez, Pastor, and Vega. It emitted a vivid orange light. When it passed close to their car it shook the car violently and the car's gears went into reverse, causing the car to drive backwards. (Source: Oscar A. Uriondo, FSR Case Histories, February 1974, p. 15).
1952 - At 9:05 p.m. EDT a BOAC airliner with 22 witnesses aboard tracked a group of at least seven objects for 18 minutes over Canada, first encountering the objects around Sept-Iles in Quebec. The objects were seen flying in and out of broken cloud cover. There were six small ovals and a larger dark object, which was continually changing shape. It was described as changing shape "like a swarm of bees might do." The six smaller orbs were "strung out in a line." The explanation provided by the US Air Force, that they were witnessing Mars, was impossible at the time. (Sources: Brinsley LePoer Trench, The Flying Saucer Story, p. 33; Gordon D. Thayer, in Edward Condon (ed.), Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects, p. 139; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p.23)
1964, Lavonia, Georgia - Driving near the Georgia-South Carolina border late in the evening, Beauford Parham experienced a close encounter with a huge, amber colored, spinning top-shaped UFO. It made a hissing sound "like a million snakes". The witness felt a burning sensation in his body while the UFO hovered just in front of car for more than a minute as he travelled along at 65 mph. The UFO went up over the car, leaving a strong odor like "embalming fluid" and a gaseous vapor covered his car. The UFO came straight at his car again and the engine of his car began to miss. He stopped the car, and the object "spun like crazy" and then took off, disappearing in a split second. Parham's hands continued to burn even after he washed them. An oily substance on the car persisted after several washings, and the car's hood was warped with bubbled up paint. (Richard Hall, Uninvited Guests, pg. 248).

1970 - At 9:32 p.m. a 20 foot in diameter glowing green, oval-shaped object with a small blue inner ring descended at a 45-degree angle toward four people in a car in Apopka, Florida. It came down 1000 feet away and to the right of the car and pursued the car closely. It had a hazy edge and a convex bottom. (Source: Hollifield, APRO Bulletin, July-August 1970, p. 1).
In 1972 a circular orange UFO hovered at 250 meters altitude around 9 p.m. for two minutes along the shore of Calais, France. It dropped some kind of a liquid, then flew to the northwest out to sea. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 123).
1974 - At one o'clock in the morning in Lille, Nord, France a lenticular-shaped disc that emitted a strong orange light was seen by several witnesses travelling in a cars. The car batteries were drained of power. At 2:25 a.m. a reddish orange luminous cylinder was seen over Hellemes, Nord, France. It hung vertically in the sky and had an intensely bright center section. A second and third set of witnesses saw an orange light but did not see the structure of the object. A fourth set of witnesses saw a violent red light. The cylinder was over the zinc roof of a house, and reportedly in generated smoke from the roof as the zinc roofing partially melted.

1974 - At Bogue Inlet, Washington, North Carolina at 9:30 p.m. a businessman was on his boat on the lake when he spotted a cone-shaped UFO hovering over one spot in the lake for ten minutes. It stayed there until a plane flew over, when it then shot up vertically at high speed, giving off an orange, jet-like flame. It was definitely not a Marine military aircraft, according to the witness. (Sources: George D. Fawcett, Flying Saucers, December 1974, p. 39; FSR, January 1975, p. 31).
1975 - At 10:30 p.m. a reddish orange ovoid object with a halo of light flew toward the northwest and maneuvered up into the sky. It was watched for 45 minutes over the town of Puilly, Meuse, France. It was completely silent. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, December 1975).
1989 - Several villagers in Chrysopetra, Macedonia, Greece had previously seen strange flashes of light in the sky earlier in the day. At 2:30 p.m. an elderly woman was doing some household chores when she heard a loud bang from outside. She ran out and found her granddaughter in a state of shock. The girl told her that she had seen a large white cloud in the garden, and then the figure of a giant almost eight meters tall appeared. He seemed to be totally encased in mist and was slightly deformed. He disappeared suddenly disappeared in plain sight emitting a loud banging sound. Large footprints were found later at the site of the encounter. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1989, case # 574, citing Thanassis Vembos, Strange Magazine, issue # 4).
1989 - The witness was sleeping on a couch that night in Bradford, Ontario when she woke up at 3:39 a.m. feeling very apprehensive. She had a strong buzzing sensation in her head and became completely paralyzed. The next thing she knew it was five o'clock in the morning. She was later able to recall that several 3 to 4 foot tall humanoids with very thin arms and small heads had appeared in her room and had somehow taken her up through the roof. They pointed at a large dark boomerang-shaped object overhead and told her that it was a "light portal." She was then taken onboard. Inside the ship she saw an enormous ziggurat-shaped ship, ringed with white running lights on each level. She was told that it was a "light ship" that traveled inter-dimensionally on light particles. The beings also talked about human being's perception of dying and the existence of many other dimensions. A few nights prior to this incident the same witness recalled also having had several small beings in her room and she had gone immediately to sleep. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1989, case # 1339, citing John Robert Colombo, UFOs Over Canada).
1994 - A round craft so large that it obscurred an entire water tower was seen from Pensacola Beach, Florida at 11:55 p.m. by six witnesses. It made no discernable sound. (Source: C. Joseph Barron, MUFON UFO Journal, November 1994).
