Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1958 - At 8:45 a.m. two residents of Healdsburg, California saw a round object one meter in diameter come from the west and land in their backyard, only 15 meters away. It took off toward the east, turned south, and was lost to sight.

Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1958: March-April, p. 39).
1965 - At 1:30 a.m., while fishing in the Florida Everglades in Hendry County, Florida 45-year-old James Flynn noticed a shiny metallic, domed disc, some 75-100 in diameter, on the ground. His hunting dogs howled, and one dog tried desperately to escape from its crate. When he approached the object an unknown force struck him in the forehead and knocked him to the ground, causing him to lose consciousness. The wound to his right eye required medical attention, and physical traces in the form of a circle of scorched sawgrass and other damaged foliage was found at the landing site.

1966 - At 3:50 a.m. in Dexter, Michigan two police officers, Bushroe and Foster, saw four highly maneuverable disc-shaped UFOs that had red and green flashing lights. They swung back and forth in the sky like pendulums over a swamp. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, April 1966, p. 5; Richard H.

Dennault, Jr., Mysteries of the Skies: UFOs in Perspective, p. 178).
1966 - In the pre-dawn hours UFOs were also tracked on radar
over Lake Erie from Selfridge AFB in Michigan. The objects
displayed extreme speed and maneuverability. (Sources: NICAP UFO

1966 - In Southport, Connecticut a domed disc with a row of red lights paced a car along a country road, then swooped down and landed on the road ahead of the car. It rose just in time to avoid a collision. (Sources: John Fuller, NICAP UFO Investigator, April 1966, p. 3; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, p. 318).
1969 - The flight surgeon and two other crew members of an Air Force KC-135 flying over Thailand saw a huge black cylinder hovering in the vertical position during a daytime flight. When a fighter aircraft was sent to investigate the object disappeared. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, May 1969, p. 1; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 14, 77, 119; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 37).
1969 - At 7:50 p.m. a white barrel shaped object with antennas hovered over a gravel pit in Malataverne, Drome, France and was witnessed by several. When a 37-year-old policeman named Manselon approached the object he was struck by some type of force field and temporarily paralyzed. (Sources: FSR, November-December 1969, p. 32, citing Lumieres dans la Nuit; Gordon Creighton, FSR, September-October 1971, p. 27; William Hauck Dennis, MUFON UFO Journal, October 1976, p. 8).
1971 - Two young men, Brian Scott and Nick Corbin, were in the Superstition Mountains, near Apache Junction, Arizona to gather snakes. During that night, at 9:06 p.m., they saw a light coming towards them over the mountains. As it approached they had a missing time memory loss, and their next recollection was that they were hastily leaving the campsite two hours later.
During a hypnosis session five years later Scott described how the object approached and hovered over them. It was emitting a purplish light from underneath, and he felt a "pulsating, pulling feeling" as the two men were lifted up into the craft. They were separated once they were inside, and Scott was led by a 7 foot tall entity down a corridor to a door which "shattered" when they entered through it. On the other side was a small room filled with mist, where he encountered 4 or 5 similar beings, 7 foot tall and with grayish skin similar to that of a crocodile, and with 3 fingered hands. The room was cold and the mist emanated from vents in the floor.
Scott was stripped and placed against a very brightly lit wall panel. A
machine directly in front of him appeared to "scan" him, and a new
9-foot-tall entity communicated with him telepathically and asked why he
was afraid. His mind was briefly transported to some other worldly
environment, presumably the being's home planet. The beings that examined
him had huge ears, no hair, and slit-like mouths. Their feet were elephant
like, with three broad toes. When the examination was completed, Scott was
reunited with his friend and they were both returned to the ground with no
conscious memory of what had taken place. However, they both felt an
unspecified terror to such a degree that they immediately packed their
gear and returned to town. (Sources: Alvin H. Lawson and William McCall,

1974 - At 11:30 p.m. Antonia Diez Ramos and her husband, Manuel Valderas Fuentes, both anglers, saw in the yard of their house in Gerena, Sevilla, Spain an ovoid object two meters long by one meter wide. Its edges emitted a strong red color, and the center was transparent. Two forms were distinguished inside. After a while, the object began to maneuver, rising up and disappearing. (Source: David F.

1976 - A married couple driving between Liria and Olocau, Valencia, Spain saw a dark figure float across the road ahead of them. at 9:45 p.m. Depite being dark it was luminous and shaped like the "Michelin man." Their car headlights died as they approached. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, November 1978, p. 31).
1990 - On this evening eight crop circle investigators in Oakland, Pennsylvania saw a glowing disc hovering in the sky. They videotaped it for nine minutes. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, November 1993).
1992 - At one o'clock in the morning a disc-shaped UFO appeared
in the skies over the Amazon Rain Forest city Ariquemes, Rondonia state,
Brazil. The silent three-meter wide disc came down to only 3 meters
above the ground, and yellow light was seen coming from portholes in the
craft. A power outage occurred, and several witnesses felt physically
pulled toward the object. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case
15683, citing UBPDV Brasil 1992).
1992 - At 8:23 p.m. in Gulf Breeze, Florida 52 witnesses watched, took still photographs, and videotoaped as red spheres of light maneuvered in the sky, responding to very bright searchlight signals. Four red balls of light turned bright white, then disappeared. (Source: Donald M. Ware, MUFON UFO Journal, July 1993, citing Field Investigator A. Hufford, case 920801E).
1995 - Charles Little and his fiancée were driving in Joshua
Tree National Monument, California at 11:30 a.m. when they noticed
two objects hovering in the sky: one in front of the car and the other
behind it. They apparently lost consciousness and came to two hours later.
Later under hypnosis, Little remembered being inside a round object with
several rooms, including a main control room with large windows and an
examination room with a small table. They encountered three types of
humanoids, short Greys with huge black oval-shaped eyes, some tall
reptilian creatures, and short hooded humanoids. After their abduction
Little found a mark on his upper thigh, and nodules behind his ears. Four
years later his fiancée died of esophageal cancer, and Little believes the
cancer was somehow related to the incident. (Source: Albert S. Rosales,

1997 - At 1:03 a.m. a couple were in a park in Cote-St.-Luc, Quebec, Canada when they heard a loud whirring sound overhead and were engulfed in a white beam. They were unable to move. Overhead they saw, less than 50 feet above them, a silver disc-shaped UFO with multi-colored lights around the rim. They experienced an episode of missing time, their clothes were singed and they had skin burns. The woman also had a round scar on her head. (Source: Geoff Dittman, 1997 Canadian UFO Survey [electronic version], case 29).
2003 - While pulling his car into the parking lot of the
Behavioral Health Services Building in Winfield, Illinois the witness
noticed three flashing objects coming down in the sky in front of the car.
He next noticed more dropping out of the the sky until there were several.
Most had red and white flashing lights, with no visible wings, and did not
make a sound. Some had blue and aqua lights. Some were triangular, some
cigar-shaped, and some were like a small box with four perpendicular
lights. The main witness brought several people out from the building, and
they all watched the spectacle together. Also during the sighting, a
bona-fide helicopter with multi-colored lights flew over. A few of these
objects left a contrail. The witness spent seven years in the Air Force,
and is confident these were not conventional aircraft. He called 911, and
a Winfield police officer responded and watched them with him. The lighted
objects also discharged balls of light every once in a while, that also
flew around. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center,
