Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1897 - The majority of the population of Omaha, Nebraska observed an object arriving from the southeast at 10:30 p.m. It looked like a huge light, flew northwestward slowly, came to low altitude. A crowd gathered at a street corner to watch it. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 181, citing the Chicago Times-Herald, March 30, 1897).
1954 - After seeing mysterious lights descend over Sumner, Washington five witnesses drove on this evening to an isolated area near some power lines and soon saw a white glowing ball of light wobbling and gliding down from the sky. It apparently went into a clump of nearby trees. The light then approached their vehicle, and moments later the white globe of light passed in front of their car. At that same moment one of the witnesses saw a tall, well-built, broad-shouldered man standing at the same spot where the globe of light had been seen. The figure was encased in a glowing white light. It suddenly disappeared in plain sight. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1954, case # 1862, citing George Hunt Williamson, Other Tongues Other Flesh).
1959 - On this night three witnesses encountered a seven foot tall luminous humanoid in a swampy area of Charles Mill Lake, Ohio. It appeared to be armless and had large, bright greenish eyes. It left tracks behind resembling those of the footgear worn by skin divers. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1959, case # 314, citing Loren Coleman, Curious Encounters).
1965 - A gray ovoid object surrounded by a foggy mist followed a man walking down a road at 11:00 p.m. in Sutton Veny, England. It made a loud noise, and he felt a heavy atmospheric pressure as a result of the object's presence. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 6679).
1966 - The chief of police in Linden, Michigan saw red, blue, and white lights hover over his town, then speed away to the north. A truck driver In Niles, Michigan had a UFO with red, green and white lights pace his truck at two o'clock in the morning. When he blinked his headlights it veered away sharply and disappeared. Around 3 a.m. in Warren, Michigan police received over thirty phone calls from residents reporting lights in the sky zigzagging and diving into a swamp. (Sources: Mort Young, UFO Top Secret, pp. 64-65; NICAP UFO Investigator, April 1966, p. 8).
1966 - At eight o'clock in the evening in Fayetteville, Tennessee a man driving at a speed of about 60 mph suddenly encountered a large lighted object only one meter above the road on a hilltop. As it flew off his car engine and headlights died. The light bulbs in the headlights had to be replaced. The object was oval shaped, seven meters long, dark gray in color, and showed about 30 lights along its periphery. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 739).
1967 - In Conifer, Colorado at 12:30 a.m., D. Davis saw a shining light on a hill on the adjoining ranch. As witnesses drove over towards it to check it out the light went out. Two sisters who had stayed back at the ranch saw a man running down the hill. He vanished near the corral. (Source: Ted Bloecher case files).
1967 - About the same time as the Colorado event (2:25 a.m. Eastern Time) a cone was seen hovering several feet over a field between Kent and Munroe Falls, Ohio. Four or five beings, each under four-feet tall, stocky and with large heads emerged. They wore helmets and glowed an orange-red color. The witness's car hit one of them, and they saw an arm fly up w a "mitten" on the hand. The car had dents and scratches as a result of the collision. (Source: APRO Bulletin, March-April 1967, p. 1).
1973 - An object shaped like the Apollo space capsule (cone-shaped) made several large loops in the sky over Mount Bouquet, France at 4:00 p.m.. It flew off toward the east at 800 meters altitude. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue no. 135).
1975 - Two local investigators were driving around northeastern Pennsylvania in the hopes of catching a glimpse of a Bigfoot creature that had been reported in the area. Around midnight they suddenly came upon two tall dark figures with red glowing eyes, who approached their vehicle as if attempting to encircle them. The investigators snapped several photographs before fleeing the area. The pictures only vaguely show what appears to be the glowing eyes. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1975, case # 1874, citing Paul G. Johnson & Joan L. Jeffers, The Pennsylvania Bigfoot).
