Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1950 - At 6:15 p.m. a disc-shaped object circled a motorist on
highway 153 north of Clearfield, Pennsylvania. There were humanoids
inside the craft that were visible through windows, and a bluish-green ray
was shot in the direction of the witness but missed. A white light
lingered in the area for more than 30 seconds, then the UFO flew off
toward the northwest. (Sources: William Baggs, Miami Daily News,
March 15, 1950; St. Louis Post Dispatch, April 2, 1950; Loren E.
Gross, UFOs: A History. 1950: January-March, p. 52).
1951 - Three men saw a one hundred foot long metallic
cigar-shaped object over the city of New Delhi, India at 9:50 a.m.
It gave off a black exhaust when it accelerated. The UFO flew toward the
southwest and then vanished from sight. It was visible for over seven
minutes. A Project Blue Book "unknown." (Source: U.S. Air Force files
counted in official statistics, case #908).
1959 - A reddish yellow sphere stopped 100 meters over the
Torino, Italy airfield at 11:00 p.m. It was pulsating and very
bright, and hovered 20 minutes. (Sources: UFO Nachtrichten,
September 1959; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case #5696, citing
Flying Saucer Review, July 1959).
1965 - Mr. James Flynn, a 45-year-old man, was out in a boat with
his hunting dogs in the Big Cypress Swamp in Florida when he encountered
a metallic cone-shaped UFO at around one o'clock in the morning. The UFO
had three rows of square windows and a yellow light. It made a generator-like
sound, then emitted a jet-like sound followed by a blast of air. His dogs
howled. Then a beam of light shot out from underneath the object, striking
the witness in the forehead. He fell unconscious, and awoke with blindness
in his right eye. Damaged foliage was found at the site, and Mr. Flynn
was admitted to hospital for a five day stay. (Sources: Coral E. Lorenzen,

1969 - A double saucer with two antennae was sighted hovering
over an athletic club in Lins, Sao Paulo state, Brazil. (Source:

1974 - At 1:45 a.m. a man and his fiancé were in a parked car on
a road near the shore in Erbalunga, Corsica, France when he looked
up and saw on the roadside bank, only 10 feet from their car, the
silhouettes of three persons with long arms, bending forward. They
appeared "smooth" and no clothing was seen. The witness at once backed up
and got out of the road; then his fiancé called his attention to a
pyramid-shaped luminous object which was just taking off from a spot about
400 feet away. It had a brilliant yellow base separated by a black band
from an orange point area; the point was directed diagonally downwards.
Once the object was in the air it suddenly disappeared. The car's radio
went out as the object took off. A search the next day found no traces.

1974 - A man was
sleeping in his van in Metairie, Louisiana after visiting a friend
when he awoke at six o'clock in the morning to see a silver disc-shaped
object hovering above a house across the street. It made no noise at all.
His next memory was of getting out of the van. Later he had vague memories
of sitting in some type of cold silvery metallic chair and having several
"people" standing around him. He remembered that the "aliens" told him not
to be afraid, and that someday they would be back. He could not recall
anything else. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1974,

1977 - At 8:30 p.m. Mrs. Joan Le Clair and four other local
people saw a UFO hovering over some nearby trees in West Jacksonport, Door
County, Wisconsin. Mrs. Le Clair looked through binoculars and
could see an elongated object, green on top and bottom, with a red band
around the center. "There appeared to be another compartment on the bottom
of this disc, and I could see windows in this lower part. There appeared
to be a figure inside the object." After three minutes the UFO sped away.
Other observers of the UFO failed to see the windows or the occupant.

1999 - At 11:15 p.m. 18-year-old Rodrigo Friedrich was returning
home from a party in Altonia, Parana, Brazil when he noticed what
appeared to be numerous shiny stars in the sky. One of the “stars” began
to descend at high speed. He at first thought it was a shooting star and
ignored it. Forty minutes later, when he reached home, a bright glow
attracted his attention about to a spot about a kilometer away. Curious,
he approached and encountered a 30-meter wide disc-shaped object that was
completely illuminated. Near the object where six short humanoids, running
back and forth and seemingly looking for something. Rodrigo began to get a
headache and tried to yell out to attract some additional witnesses, but
with no success, so he left. As he walked away he looked back and saw the
object climb into the sky at high speed. Several days later Rodrigo began
experiencing nightmares in which he saw short, gray-colored humanoids.
