Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1950 - A metallic disc hovered over Chihuahua Airport in Mexico at five kilometers altitude during the day, then shot off quickly toward the south. (Sources: newspaper clipping dated March 5, 1950; Inforespace, December 1975).
1950 - Military and civilian radars tracked a UFO flying at between 40,000 and 80,000 feet near Knoxville, Tennessee. No planes were scheduled in the area at the time. The US Air Force suggested that the visual sightings may have been due to a mirage. (Source: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics).
1954 - Three daylight discs were spotted over Carrasco Airport in Montevideo, Uruguay at 2:30 p.m. They were swinging back and forth in a falling leaf motion. (Sources: Coral E. & Jim Lorenzen, UFOs: The Whole Story, p. 55; Richard Hall, UFO Reports from the Files of the CIA, p. 15).
1967 - DeWitt Baldwin was raccoon hunting at night in the woods near Eden, New York when he heard a noise like buzzing bees around 1:30 a.m. He flashed his flashlight on a gold colored, unlighted saucer-shaped object that had landed on the ground. A sliding door opened and a man emerged, dressed in a black, tight-fitting suit and wearing a helmet with goggles. He asked the witness some questions, such as what he was doing there at that hour and where he had been born. He then took Baldwin's gun, looked at it and then handed it back. Baldwin claimed the humanoid broke the muzzle of the gun while examining it. Baldwin said, "He wasn't white and he wasn't black. He talked very plainly and with no accent. He had black curly hair." He told me he would be back, walked up to the saucer, got in and seconds later zipped off out of sight. No footprints or landing imprints were found in the snow where the object had rested.

1967 - Four bright domed discs flew from north to south over Valparaiso, Chile on this day. They had flashing red and blue lights. (Source: Jim & Coral Lorenzen, UFOs over the Americas, p. 59).
1967 - At 7:25 p.m. a white glowing ovoid maneuvered silently near some homes in Sharon, Massachusetts, leaving a white luminous trail. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 345; Raymond E. Fowler, Casebook of the UFO Investigator, p. 164).
Sharon, Massachusetts - 1967
1967 - In Poland, Indiana at 10:10 p.m. four people in a car were chased to their home for several miles by a dark domed disc. The UFO then hovered outside their house. (Source: Francis L. Ridge, Regional Encounters, p. 21, citing Don Worley).
1969 - A white nocturnal light maneuvered in front of a drive-in movie screen in Hectorville, South Australia on this evening. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 183).
1972 - A two-meter wide spinning, luminous ball of light hung over a factory in Boussois, France at 6:30 p.m. It moved off toward the northwest in jumps. It was back again the next night, and again the following night. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, August 1972).
1974 - A woman and her invalid husband were sitting on their front porch enjoying the spring weather on this afternoon near Millington, Tennessee when something in the sky caught their attention. They saw five saucer-shaped objects about two feet in diameter that moved at a low altitude slowly through the sky. They floated leisurely over a field across the road from their house and settled down in the midst of a herd of cows some five hundred yards away. Only one cow paid any attention to the small discs. It acted offended by the intrusion and turned and walked towards one of the mini UFOs. The object rose up, flew over the cow, and settled down again behind the cow. Each time the cow attempted to approach it would simply rise up, pass over the cow and settle down on the other side. The woman's husband became upset. He went and got his rifle and started hobbling out toward the field. The wife saw one of the objects fly very close to her husband's head and then rejoin the others as they flew away. By that time her husband had reached the fence and was standing still. His hands were down at his sides, the rifle clutched in one of them. When she got to him he was icy cold and shivering. All he could say was that one of the objects had "flashed" him with a bright light. She helped him back up to the house and he went inside to lie down on a daybed. He stayed there the rest of the day and said nothing more. The next morning the woman looked out and saw the cow lying dead next to a pond. Two weeks later her husband also died. The doctor said he had died of a heart attack. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1974, citing Bob Pratt).
1974 - At eight o'clock in the evening three observers saw a nearby hillside illuminated by a bright yellow light in Vesta Community, Virginia. A red luminous object was then seen ascending from the site. The object, about the size of a Volkswagen, hovered approximately 300 feet above the hill and went through a series of right angle turns, then headed south toward Stuart, Virginia. Billy Wayne Plasters and Richard N. Clifton drove to the landing site by truck and observed the silhouette of a "big, tall, heavyset man" approach from a lighted area. They called out and got no answer. Frightened, they jumped back into their truck and fled. The light on the hillside disappeared a few minutes later. Next day, patches of charred vegetation were found at the site covering a large area. Other people in the vicinity reported seeing strange lights that same night, and hearing unexplained noises.

1974 - On the same night a flat, disc-shaped object with many lights on its rim was seen spinning in the sky, in a counter-clockwise direction, over St Louis, Missouri. (Source: NICAP UFO Investigator, April 1974).
1978 - A cigar-shaped object with a dome flew toward the east, then turned toward the northeast as it flew through the sky in Sterling Heights, Michigan at 9 p.m. It had colored portholes that flashed light. (Source: NICAP UFO Investigator, October 1978).
1985 - Three silent, teardrop-shaped objects flew quickly over the city of Randburg, South Africa in a V formation, heading toward the northeast. (Source: Cynthia Hind, UFO Afri News, July 1990).
1985 - At shortly after midnight a bluish-white light entered a house in California through the ceiling. Landed outside in the yard was a wedge-shaped craft. Two seven-foot tall beings entered the house wearing blue uniforms and domed helmets. The witness was paralyzed and abducted, and remembers being inside a blue shaft of light. (Source: Richard J. Boylan, Close Extraterrestrial Encounters, p. 130).
1990 - On this night a woman ran out into 11 inches of fresh snow in her front yard in Otter Tail County, Minnesota to see a hovering disc-shaped craft. The disc ascended into a larger hovering object that appeared suddenly. She then suffered a blackout and was apparently abducted. She vaguely recalled being taken onboard by tall, blond, Nordic type beings who predicted that a catastrophe would befall Earth between the years 2000 and 2011. She also believes that an implant was inserted into her head through one of her nostrils. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1990, case # 2330, citing Don Worley, UFOs: Alien Encounters 1995).
1995 - At 9 p.m. a cigar-shaped object with windows appeared in the sky and looked to be slowly surveying a farm in Sedalia, Missouri. It had a bright light in front and several small lights in the rear of the object. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center 1995 Report).
1998 - An object that left a trail of sparks flew over the Badger Army Ordnance ammunition plant outside Lodi, Wisconsin from east to west at 2:20 a.m. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 1998 webpage archive).
