Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1912 - A "splendidly lit craft" passed over Warmley Village, Bath, England at eight o'clock in the evening. It flew very fast to the north. (Sources: Charles Fort, The Book of the Damned, p. 249; Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers on the Attack, p. 13).

1957 - At two o'clock in the afternoon in Hope Township, New Jersey Mrs. Martin heard her dogs barking. She looked outside to see a Derby hat-shaped UFO with a rounded dome, 30-40 feet high and 50 feet in diameter. It made a gentle rocking motion and a low rumbling sound. Beneath it there were streamers or lines of twinkling material. (Sources: Ted Bloecher, Civilian Saucer Intelligence, New York; J. Allen Hynek, The Hynek UFO Report, p. 151).
1961 - In South Miami, Dade County, Florida at 10:15 p.m. a man saw a cigar-shaped object with occupants aboard. (Sources: Norbert F. Gariety, Flying Saucers, September 1961, p. 38; Geroge D. Fawcett, Flying Saucers, May 1963, p. 34).
1965 - In Sydney, New South Wales, Australia a formation of eight silent, yellow lighted objects trailing sparks flew through the sky, at a speed many times faster than the speed of sound. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 88).
1965 - At 7:30 p.m. in Mobile, Alabama Mrs. B. Crutchfield saw a sphere encircled in the middle with windows. The UFO came to within 150 feet distance, and an estimated altitude of only 65 feet from the ground. Inside she could see a human-appearing pilot or occupant who wore a silver flight suit. A second figure stood in front of an instrument panel. At the time, the witness believed she saw an experimental aircraft of the U.S. Air Force. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1965-05 (A0615), citing Ted Bloecher investigation, report dated January 9, 1978).
1967 - Mr. and Mrs. Wolanin of Benton Harbor, Michigan reported sighting an oval-shaped or disc-shaped UFO with red, green, and yellow lights around its bottom rim, and with a pulsating red light, at one minute past midnight. The UFO flew on a level flight path from east to west over Benton Harbor. After several minutes a second UFO joined it. Both objects hovered for 30 seconds and then vanished. A hissing sound was reported. This is a Project Blue Book "unidentified" case. The entire duration of the sighting was estimated to be more than 40 minutes. (Sources: U.S. Air Force Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case 11454; Don Berliner, Australasian Ufologist, April 1999, p. 54; Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty Year Report, p. 331).
1967 - Police officer Courson of Galesburg, Illinois witnessed a domed disc while driving in farm country between Galesburg and Moline at 4:25 a.m. The UFO had a pulsating red rim and a bottom that rotated rapidly. The UFO approached the witness, then passed overhead at a low altitude. Like the Benton Harbor, Michigan UFO of the same night, this object also made a hissing sound. This is also a Project Blue Book "unidentified" case. (Source: U.S. Air Force Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case 11460; Don Berliner, Australasian Ufologist, April 1999, p. 54; Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty Year Report, p. 331).
1967 - At 8:15 p.m. in Olpe, Kansas nine witnesses spotted a cone-shaped, blue-green light that was estimated to be 15 feet in height. The UFO emitted a reddish-orange light as it went over the house. They decided to follow the low flying UFO in a car. The UFO was observed to hover for awhile. It then shot up vertically, and descended slowly. It was described as a lighted interior. The sighting lasted ten minutes. (Source: NICAP investigation files, citing Topeka Journal, March 7, 1967).
1969 - At 11:00 a.m. a woman in Glenwood, Missouri noticed her dog acting strangely and attempting to hide under the seat in her car. Next, the hair stood up on her arms. She then saw a bluish-white beam of light ahead on the road. Her car slowed from a speed of 50-60 mph down to 10 mph when it entered the beam. Looking up, she saw a disc-shaped object hovering 1000 feet overhead. The car didn't respond to the accelerator until after it had left the beam. The woman's eyes bothered her for three days following the incident. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 264, citing CUFOS).
1969 - On the same day a married couple in Buscot, Alicante,
Spain saw three UFOs illuminating a mountainside for three minutes.
Their car engine failed when the three objects landed on the mountain.

1969 - Sr. Dominguez was driving his truck down a road in Campamento Manantres in the State of Magallanes, Chile at 9:45 p.m. when his headlights dimmed. He noticed a four-meter wide disc hovering six meters away. A door on the craft opened and some beings floated out. The beings were presumably humanoid but were not described sufficiently to classify into any group. There were ground traces left at the site. (Sources: Ted R. Phillips, Physical Effects Associated with UFOs, case 376).
1975 - At two a.m. near Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
a man and his cousin watched a bright orange hexagonal shaped
craft hovering close to the ground and about a kilometer away. They
felt a strange vibration coming from it and perceived an audible sound.

reported seeing two human-like figures flying around outside the craft,
using what appeared to be backpacks. His parents felt the vibration and
heard the humming sound but didn't see the UFO. (Source: Peter

There were four humanoid encounters on this day in 1996 on four different continents: Australia, Africa, Europe and North America.
1996 - Two adults reported seeing strange lights in Casino, New South Wales, Australia at three a.m. They then experienced a period of missing time. An abduction scenario emerged under hypnosis. The witnesses recalled being paralyzed inside their vehicle and seeing two humanoids, described as tall, gray in color, with small ears, large black eyes, two dots for a nose, a small mouth, with no lips, that entered their vehicle, undid their seat belts, and then carried them outside the car. Two shorter humanoids arrived and carried the children from the back seat of the vehicle. The abductees were apparently taken onboard a UFO, where inside they were given some form of medical examination.One of the witnesses recalled a tall gray humanoid using something resembling a silver staple gun that was pressed against her neck. Another witness remembered flying inside an object and seeing tall buildings with domed ceilings that had strange patterns of top. The witnesses reported another type of humanoid described as tall with a wrinkled appearance. This being inserted some type of rod-like instrument into their eyes. Unusual physiological aftereffects were noted. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, case #2609, citing Keith Basterfield).
1996 - A teenaged student and a woman worker at a local teaching center in Bindura, South Africa reported seeing a white ovoid UFO, about 1.5 meters in diameter, with an antenna. A small being with a large head was also seen making a strange clicking noise as it wandered near the school. Small round footprints were reportedly left behind by the entity. (Sources: Cynthia Hinds, UFO AfriNews, January 1997; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, case #3386, citing Cynthia Hind).
1996 - Ms. Teide Carballo De Trinidad, a nurse's aide at a local boarding home for the elderly in West Dade County, Florida looked out the window at 11:00 p.m. to see a six foot tall creature, tan in color with a large head, walking swiftly around the yard. She panicked and lost sight of the being as it disappeared behind a wall. The creature walked hunched over. No other details were noted. The next day goats and chickens were found dead and mutilated at the home and in other locations in the area. Strange tracks were also found. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, personal on-site investigation, case #2241).
1996 - At 11:00 p.m. a glowing sphere hovered over Friol, Spain. The main witness signaled to the object by flashing a light, whereupon the UFO descended and lowered a ramp. Three humanoids exited the craft. Footprints were found at the landing site. (Source: Richard F. Haines, CE-5: Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind, p. 89).
1996 - In addition to the UFO reports with humanoid encounters there were two other noteworthy UFO reports on this day. At 10:30 p.m. the Mayor of Autignac, France briefly sighted an orange, ovoid flying object while he was out walking his dog. Secondly, a disc-shaped UFO, estimated to be 50 feet across at the bottom, with a dome on top and red, green, and blue lights around its periphery, was sighted in Frankfort, Illinois at seven o'clock in the evening. (Sources: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 337; Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 1996 webpage).
