Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1950 - An oval-shaped, aluminum colored object hung in sky at
40,000 feet altitude over Indian School Road southeast of Phoenix, Arizona
at 6:00 p.m. It was estimated to be 200 feet in diameter, tapering to
narrower proportions in the rear. It moved silently through the sky with
a red fiery trail one hundred feet long, but left no vapor trail. It was
gone from sight in 4 to 5 seconds. (Source: Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A
History. 1950: January-March, p. 45).
1961 - F. Reynolds and his son were camping near the water in
Bowna, New South Wales, Australia. They observed an object
on the ground with four windows in it. There was a fire nearby, and four
figures could be seen between it and the object. At 9:30 p.m. it had disappeared.
Witnesses in Wodonga, West Albury, Wangaratta and Tallangatta independently
observed an unknown object in flight that same evening. (Source: Jacques
Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 516).
1967 - At 12:20 a.m. a glowing orange-red hemisphere with the
flat side down was seen in a rural area of Phillipston, Massachusetts
by a single witness. It was ten times the apparent diameter of the moon.

1967 - Two men were driving in a remote part of Piggott, Arkansas
when their truck's engine failed. Before they could get out of the vehicle
to investigate they saw a 50-foot wide saucer shaped object descend to
the ground in front of them. Two bizarre looking "aliens" emerged
from the object and walked over to their truck. The humanoids were described
as of average human height, but with large heads that were flat in the
back, and gray in color. They had normal eyes, noses, and mouths. They
also wore tight-fitting gray diver's suits. The men felt like they were
being bombarded with vibrations and had the uncanny feeling that the aliens
knew what they were thinking. Rolling down the truck windows, the men
spoke to one of the aliens, who reportedly told them that they meant them
no harm and they could continue on their journey if they promised to keep
this meeting a secret. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database
1967, case # 2583, citing MUFON UFO Journal, issue # 172).
1968 - At nine o'clock in the evening a dark oval shaped object
with a searchlight in the front, wobbled and moved with motion of a boat
moving over waves in the ocean. It passed over the local electric power
substation in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and flew off following the
power lines. (Sources: Walter N. Webb, case investigation files; Raymond
E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 351).

1969 - A silver domed disc-shaped object with a beam of light
was seen on the road ahead as a married woman drove between Glenwood and
Lancaster, Missouri at 10:30 a.m. Her car slowed down from 50 miles
per hour to just 8 mph when the beam touched it. Her dog reacted with
fear, and her eyes hurt for three days after the incident. (Sources: Robert
Smulling, APRO Bulletin, May-June 1969, p. 7; Gordon I. R. Lore,
Jr., Strange Effects from UFOs, p. 32).
1969 - That same night a domed disc passed over a police car five
miles west of Westhope, North Dakota at 10:10 p.m. It then hovered
over the road, wobbling as it hovered, and shot a beam of light downward
onto the road. The object eventually slid sideways, then lifted off vertically
into the sky. The police officer, Mr. Janzen, reportedly felt strange
"psychological forces" and suffered physiological effects as
a result of his encounter. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, May
1969, p. 3; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference,
case 266, citing CUFOS; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II:
A Thirty Year Report, pp. 14 & 174).
Westhope, North Dakota CE-II - March 10, 1969
1972 - In Decatur County, Indiana west-northwest of Milhausen
a farm couple reported seeing a huge delta-shaped UFO at 4:10 a.m. A heavy,
reddish-orange stone was found on the ground that later vanished. According
to APRO field investigator Donald Worley, the woman suffered chest pains
at the time of the UFO encounter, and there was some unusual interference
with the investigation by a mystery person. (Source: APRO Bulletin,
May-June 1973, p. 1; Ted Phillips, Physical Traces Associated with
UFO Sightings, case 557).
1972 - In Aubigny, Eure district, France a 63-year-old
fireman spotted a disc or oval-shaped object with tripod landing gear
descend from the sky, then land 200 meters away. It had a red ball of
light on top of it and two portholes. The lights on the object blinked
out after 40 seconds. Mr. Lauretz reported that his car engine sputtered
and lost power when he attempted to leave the scene by driving away. This
effect lasted for the first 200 meters. (Sources: Phenomenes Spatiaux,
March 1972, p. 22, citing Progress Soir, March 20, 1972; APRO
Bulletin, May-June 1972, p. 1; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving
Vehicle Interference, p. 53 (case 314); Richard H. Hall, The UFO
Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, p. 253).
1975 - A surgically mutilated dead cow was found in a 30-foot
wide crop circle, six miles south of Whiteface, Texas. (Source:
CUFOS case files, report dated March 10, 1975; Jacques Vallee, Messengers
of Deception, p. 185).
1977, Indianapolis, Indiana - A 13-year-old boy with the
last name of Brandenburg took three photographs of a dark disc-shaped
object with a transparent dome near his home shortly before four o'clock
in the afternoon, while the UFO was circling the area. The photographs
appeared to be genuine, according to APRO. (Sources: CUFOS case files,
report dated April 12, 1977; APRO Bulletin, April 1977, p. 1).
1978 - At 10:10 p.m. a round object with glowing blue and red
lights was seen by several witnesses in Sylva, North Carolina.
It made a humming sound, gave off beeps and flew in circles at a low altitude.
It finally flew off at high speed after three minutes. (Source: Sylva
(North Carolina) Herald, March 16, 1978).
1983 - At 9:30 p.m. a bright light near the southeastern horizon
approached a car with Mr. & Mrs. Waldemar aboard just north of Naylor,
Missouri. As the elongated object approached they could see a cluster
of red, green, and orange lights on the craft, which they estimated to
be 150 feet long from front to back. The UFO turned and flew away. (Source:
UFO Newsclipping Service, May 1983, p. 1, citing Clay County
Courier, March 17, 1983).
1987 - According to MUFON, a silent triangular shaped UFO buzzed
Corydon, Indiana at 11:30 p.m. (Source: Paul Ferrughelli, Computer
Catalog of UFO Reports, 1988-94, case 578, citing Francis L. Ridge).
1988 - At 8:45 p.m. UFO investigators on the A61 highway north
of Sheffield, England saw a large pulsating orange ovoid UFO fly
by at 400 feet altitude (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1990,
1991 - A 22-year-old man in Citrus Heights, California
observed a light gray triangular object flying at 2000-3000 feet altitude
at 10:30 p.m. The object was estimated to be 200 feet in diameter, had
rounded corners, and flew silently at a speed of between 100 and 150 mph.
It flew on a straight course, going directly overhead and finally passed
beyond some trees. He could see the lightless object due to its reflection
of lights from the ground. (Sources: MUFON field investigations database,
case 911003W, John G. Maylone field investigator; Robert Gribble, MUFON
UFO Journal, November 1992, p. 19).
1995 - In Cass County, Missouri a number of 25 foot in
diameter bowl-shaped metallic discs lifted off from the ground in a farmer's
field at 6:15 a.m. They wree only 100 feet away from the witness when
they took off. (Source: Francis L. Ridge, UFO Intelligence Newsletter).
1997 - After dropping off his girlfriend at her home in the city
of Santa Fe de Bogota, Colombia Juan Sudarsky was walking home
alone at around 3:00 a.m. when he suddenly felt very cold. He next saw
a purple light drop from the sky, and at the same time he heard a high-pitched
screeching sound and he felt dizzy. He fell to his knees, sweating profusely
despite the sensation of cold. An orange beam of light then appeared beside
him. Several odd looking, medium-sized creatures then emerged from the
beam. They appeared to have only one eye and each had a large antenna
that radiated an odd blue light. They had a strange orifice where their
mouths should have been. The creatures emitted intermittent screeches
of varying frequencies. Juan could apparently understand them, because
he was receiving mental messages. The beings then formed a circle around
Sudarsky, and one of them approached and touched his forehead. He then
got a mental message in perfect Spanish, telling him to guard the planet
against pollution, because their own world was almost totally ruined,
and now there were only 50 of them left. Soon after this they flew back
into the purple light via the orange beam of light. Before leaving, the
leader showed Sudarsky a strange communication device. (Source: Albert
S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1997, case # 2844, citing UFO
Sightings in New Mexico and the World).
1999 - A woman in Belper, Derbyshire, England saw a bright
orange light in the sky from her home at 10:45 p.m. and got her binoculars.
Looking through the binoculars she could tell the UFO was "a perfect
black triangle" with a row of red lights on one side. It was also
completely silent. Fifteen minutes later a motorist driving down a highway
in Duffield, England saw a bright light in sky and pulled into
a bus stop for better view. He reported seeing a "flat, triangular,
black shape with equal sides, flying with the point first." (Source:
Curt Sutherly, UFO Mysteries: A Reporter Seeks the Truth, p 206).
2004 - The crews of a number of fishing vessels fifty miles off
the coast of Neah Bay, Washington observed a disc-shaped object
with white, red and green lights at 7:00 p.m. on this evening. It flew
around at high rates of speed and was in view for nearly half an hour.
