 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 March 10

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. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 346).

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.

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).

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.

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, p. 25).

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. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 2004 archived webpage reports).
