 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 March 20

1965 - In Welshpool, Victoria, Australia a yellow zig-zagging light was seen maneuvering in the sky; it stopped for 2-3 minutes intermittently, then rose vertically and vanished. At Margaret Brock Lighthouse in South Australia a disc-shaped, brightly lit object moved slowly about the clouds. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs over the Southern Hemisphere, pp. 118, 190).

1965 - At 1:00 a.m. three blue discs flew from north to south very fast over the El Toreno oil field in Barinas province, Venezuela. (Source: APRO Bulletin, January-February 1966).

1967 - At 10:45 p.m. a man and his daughter in Butler, Pennsylvania saw two lights that they thought were landing lights on an aircraft, but they came to ground level and flew straight toward the car, then suddenly vanished. At the same time, five figures appeared about three meters away. They had narrow, pointed noses, mouths and eyes like slits, blond hair, rough skin, and were dressed in loose "hunterlike" clothes. Witnesses drove away as fast as they could. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 826).

1973 - Mrs. Vandervoort, who was living outside the village of Tarcienne, Belgium, went outdoors at 7:15 p.m. to close her shutters. She saw a white light pass over the roof of the nearest house some 100 meters away. The UFO approached silently from the direction of the nearby woods and moved toward the east. In the next hour, at intervals of some minutes apart, she saw a total of 25 similar lights or objects fly over at only 10 to 15 meters above the trees, moving very fast. With the aid of a telescope she observed in the front of one of these objects a "man" standing. He was handling a "board" and was just a "tiny" figure but "of great height." He held one arm straight up. The witness reportedly took photos of some of the lights. "It was impressive," she was quoted as saying, insisting they were not normal aircraft. She said she was familiar with aircraft because there is a Belgian Air Force Base northeast of her locale. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-87, citing Alain Boisvert, GESAG Belgium).

1974 - At 11:10 a.m. a man saw a strange object come from the sky and fall into a valley in El Campillo, Sevilla, Spain. He drove to the site and walked into the valley, where he saw a 200-meter-long, cigar-shaped object. Two smaller objects then entered it, but a third object, shaped like two oval spheres with cupolas on both top and bottom, began to chase him. He got in his car and was able to escape, but noticed heavy static on his car's radio as he drove away.

1974 - Becky Ingram, age 14, heard "voices" in her head several times beginning on March 9th. On this afternoon she compulsively walked out into the center of her school football field in Lewisburg, Tennessee instead of taking the school bus home. Although she recalls seeing nothing in the field, she next remembers finding herself inside a brightly lit room as a ramped door closed behind her. She was confronted by two small humanoid entities, shorter than her. They had blond, short cropped hair and later identified themselves as "Alton" and "Tombo." Becky was instructed to lie on a hospital-like bed where she was examined by a gloved implement that was passed over her. She was taken for an hour's trip "to Australia" and then returned. She felt weak and sleepy, and for several weeks after this incident she was extremely fatigued and suffered from headaches and other physical symptoms. She had two more experiences over the next four months. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1974-82, citing Stanley Ingram & Don Worley).

1977 - On this night a husband and wife were in a pair of sleeping bags by the seashore in Pebble Beach, California when they saw a bright disc-shaped object come from the ocean straight towards them. The woman had a brief recollection of seeing several tall humanoids without mouths, who communicated with her telepathically and showed her a book. She later recalled that the craft was flat, streamlined, and black in color. A beam of light was shone on the couple and apparently took them inside the UFO. The eyes of the aliens were reportedly black and shiny but rounded towards the nose and did not blink. The aliens were about six and a half to seven feet, thin, with delicate bodies, and very long fingers. They wore skintight one-piece diver outfits like wetsuits. Their heads were completely hairless. The inside of the craft resembled a doctor's office: it was very bright white and warm. The wife was made to lie on a very cold table, where she was strapped down and observed many instruments, one of which made a buzzing sound. The woman had been involved in previous close encounter incidents. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1977, citing WBS Newsletter, special edition # 4)

1993 - Ziporet Carmel woke up earlier than usual and went to her kitchen in Kadima, Israel at 6:30 a.m. When she got there she noticed the room was bathed in a strange light. She went to check the grounds and when she walked around a storage shed she noticed what looked like a large fruit silo in a nearby field. As she took a closer look she noticed that the silver silo-like object was square in shape. It had 18 square glowing windows along its side. Five huge beams of powerful light shone from the top into the sky. Then, what appeared to be a second storey to the object materialized, doubling its size. A seven-foot tall man figure appeared near the object. Dogs in the area reacted with furious barking upon catching sight of the figure. The being wore a metallic coverall and sombrero-shaped headgear with a veil that completely covered the face. The witness and the entity stared at each other for about 30 seconds. Ms. Ziporet then quietly whispered "Why don't you take off your hat so I can see your face." She then heard a clear voice inside her head that spoke in Hebrew, telling her, "That's how things were." The witness then felt strangely compelled to go back to her kitchen. Later during a search of the field numerous ground traces were found, including an unknown smelly substance that made people nauseous. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, case # 2003, citing Barry Chamish, UFO Universe, Spring 1995).

1993 - At five o'clock in the morning Mr. Julio Chagala was sleeping in his home in Catemaco, Mexico when he was suddenly awakened by a bright blue light that entered his room through a window. Everything seemed to become very still and his surroundings were enveloped in that strange blue light. Looking out a window he saw a gold colored disc-shaped object, about 15 meters in diameter, land on a nearby field. The craft was totally silent when it came down. A hatch opened and several very large figures exited. They were about 2.5 meters in height but human in proportions, and they wore tight-fitting silvery diver's suits. They had long arms, pale complexions, large blue slanted eyes, and long golden-blond hair.

Mr. Chagala had by this time walked outside and approached the craft. The visitors saluted him with gloved hands, waving and then gesturing for him to enter the craft. Once inside he noticed that the humanoids had long pointed ears. He also saw numerous consoles and what appeared to be comfortable seats, he also saw a metallic table with several different instruments. One of the humanoids showed him a screen where he saw scenes of war, destruction, and ecological collapse. The craft had taken off and soon landed in an strange beautiful city, filled with humans of all ages. A large golden sun illuminated the city. He was taken to a crystalline waterfall that was surrounded by lovely colored stones. There the humanoids explained to Mr. Chagala that his destiny was to heal and care for his fellow man. He was also told that the aliens had several bases in the area, including one at the Ixtamalapan Lagoon. Chagala was warned of a different kind of humanoid that also visited the Earth, and these were the ones responsible for the reported animal mutilations. His hosts described them as the short, large-headed humanoids with huge black eyes, four fingered hands and protruding stomachs. They typically wore tight-fitting maroon outfits and traveled in small flying craft with ball-shaped landing gear. Mr. Chagala was eventually returned home. He experienced a drastic weight loss after the incident but recovered. Other local residents reported low-flying lights over the area about same time as his encounter. Currently Mr. Chagala is a known healer that uses natural herbs and remedies. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, citing Grupo Cassiopeia Mexico).
