 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 May 2

1949 - At 10:20 a.m. north of Elko, Nevada three metallic discs with an estimated diameter of 10 meters flew over the desert to the southwest at 400 kph and an altitude of 4200 meters. They were silent, and all three veered to the south with the same precise tilt.

1958 - Eight people working in a forest near Santa Fe de Bogota, Colombia saw a green creature with scaly skin and very long arms. The pointed nails of its long fingers nearly touched the ground. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 467, citing L. Bulgarini; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A0460).

1967 - A scientist and his wife sighted a white cigar-shaped object flying east of Tranmere, South Australia. It had a globe-shaped light at the front and it left a luminescent trail. They watched it for five minutes as it went over the horizon. There were two more sightings that evening over Mount Whaleback in Western Australia, one at 8:30 p.m. and another at 11:50 p.m. (Sources: Michael Hervey, UFOs Over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 179; L. J. Locke, Flying Saucers, October 1969, p. 11, citing Australian Flying Saucer Review).

1967 - A misty gray oval with four blinking red lights and a steady white light on top was seen in Montezuma, Iowa by a nineteen-year-old named Latcham at 8:25 p.m. It hovered, rose straight up, and then angled off to the west, climbing rapidly. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, May-June 1967, p. 8; Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, p. 338).

1968 - On this morning the witness was out collecting bark for firewood in a spot near her lake on Keats Island, British Columbia when the same two strange men she had met on January 29 approached her. Both wore dark "neat" coveralls, as if they were brand new. One of the men was about 20 years old, and he seemed to hide behind the other man as the witness approached them. The younger man stared intently at the woman during the conversation she had with the older man, and only spoke once. She continued to be mystified about how they were coming and going from her remote island location. (Source: Peter Guttilla, Saga UFO Report, Summer 1974, citing John Magor, Our UFO Visitors).

1971 - Bobby Ford was outside his home in Jonesville, Arkansas on this night when he was grabbed by a huge hairy creature with claws, and pulled to the ground. After a brief struggle he escaped from his assailant. He was treated at a Texarkana hospital for scratches and shock. Footprints were discovered on Ford's property. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1971, case #2960, citing Ron Schaffner).

1972 - William G. Lestin and his wife were driving to a motel near Salisbury, Maryland at around 11 p.m. when they saw a luminous disc settle to the ground 100 yards away. Mr. Lestin got out of the car and walked to within 50 feet of the object. He described seeing a round object sitting on tripod landing gear. Moving about underneath it were two four-foot humanoids, resembling human beings but with long arms that dangled to the ground. They were "apparently covered with a glazed coat of grayish material" and wore helmets. As he watched, a door opened and a ramp descended; the two humanoids re-boarded and the object rose up into the air with a blinding red light. The entire incident had lasted more than five minutes. Mr. Lestin was terrified by his experience and had to be sedated when he arrived at his destination. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1972-10, citing Richard LaPorte, Argosy UFO Annual 1975).

1978 - A witness noticed two white uniformed Grey humanoid figures standing on the grounds of an abductee's property in South Middleton, Massachusetts. They stood motionless and held their arms close to their bodies. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, case # 844, citing David F. Webb, FSR, Vol. 27 # 2).

1978 - On the same day in Escazu, Costa Rica Eduardo Enrique Lacayo, age 10, was out playing in the front yard of his uncle's house at 6:30 p.m. when he saw a cat. He decided to chase it as it ran towards a large empty lot across the street. As he ran towards the field he suddenly noticed a hovering silvery disc-shaped object that emitted a strong yellow light. The UFO resembled two soup plates placed together and was about 15 meters in diameter, and it was hovering at about 200 meters above the ground with a slight wobbling motion. A gray cloud-like mist emerged from the object and descended towards the ground. Stunned, Enrique watched as the mist-like vapor assumed the shape of a human-like figure that remained suspended above the ground. The figure wore a kind of "cape" or long tunic that did not reach its feet, since the witness was able to observe gold-colored laceless shoes on the figure's feet. The figure was about 170 meters tall. The cat also apparently observed the spectacle, since the animal's fur stood on end and it quickly scurried from the scene. Eduardo did not notice any facial features on the figure except what appeared to be thin lips. The figure extended its arms at him, as if beckoning him to approach, and it appeared to open its mouth. At this point the boy became afraid, and ran away quickly away. Looking back he did not see the figure again, and the UFO rose up into the sky at very high speed. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Carlos Vilchez).

2001 - In Rosario, Argentina a woman, "M" found herself being lifted into a whirlwind at two o'clock in the morning, presumably from her bedroom, but she doesn't know how she got outdoors. She was oriented vertically as she floated upwards, and was able to move her arms and look around as she did so.

She approached a powerful light that seemed to emanate from a hole in the sky. She then noticed three humanoids floating next to her, who accompany her through the orifice. Looking down, she could see the roof of her house, then watched as the house became smaller, and then the city of Rosario itself faded into the distance. As she continued to ascend into the sky she fell asleep, but an intense cold wave woke her up and she heard what sounded like a metallic hatch closing.

She noticed she had a dark room through a hexagonal opening. As her eyesight adjusted noticed that she was in an immense room with about 20 floating cots, each with a human figure on them. To her right she noticed her 45-year-old sister asleep on one of the cots. She also recalled seeing a black skinned man lying about 4 cots away. In the background she could hear a low steady snoring sound. She began to hear what appeared to be low "voices" that spoke very quickly among themselves. Almost at the same time three humanoids approached her. They were about 1.60 meters tall, very thin, with elongated hairless heads, two small holes for noses, and cat-like eyes that glowed a bluish-gray color. Their hands had three large fingers connected by a membrane and a separate finger or thumb. Their bodies were of a beige-pale color and appeared very flexible, almost gelatinous. They possessed small mouths and what appeared to be a small protuberance on top of their heads.

She sensed there were both females and males present but could not see any sexual features. At this point she sensed desperation from the beings as if their time was short because their species was unable to reproduce. One of the beings seemed to measure her cranium with a thin tube about 30 cm in length that emitted a beam of light from the tip. As the tube or bar was passed over her head she felt a slight sensation of warmth. She also sensed that the aliens had chosen Earth for a reproduction staging area, acquiring the necessary materials, which were human genetic materials from both genders.

She could hear other thoughts or speech in her mind and felt that the beings talked about her and about her knowledge. At this point another one of the beings seemed to measure her face from ear to ear at the same time telling her via telepathy that everything was going to be fine. The witness felt that the aliens needed human bodies as some kind of breeding "container" for their own survival purposes.

She became terrified as the three humanoids approached her to touch her. She asked them if they are spiritual beings and they answer yes, but she felt it was only an attempt to manipulate her mind. One of the humanoids attempted to touch her breasts but she pushed his arm aside and noticed that it had a gummy texture with no apparent bone structure. On her descent back to her home she remembered seeing images of famous persons flash around her, including John F. Kennedy, Adolph Hitler, and Judy Garland. She woke up in her bed with her concerned husband attempting to calm her down. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 2001 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Horacio Roberto, Nuevos Tiempos, Argentina).

2003 - Three young women returning from a bonfire in the Illinois countryside and had just finished putting away equipment and chairs into a shed. As they got back into their van, at around 3:30 a.m., one of them saw a figure standing a short distance off the driveway by a house. She pointed it out to the other two. Somewhat spooked, they drove back toward town. They described the figure as man-like, wearing light colored or white clothing. They headed over to the site of the bonfire, the embers of which were still glowing. Suddenly, in the glare of their van's headlights they all saw two separate rows of creatures, with perhaps 15 standing in each row. They were about three or four feet tall and were standing only 15 feet away from them, directly in front of the van. One of the women wrote that they had "Christmas light heads" that were connected to their body, but she couldn't see how. Their arms were up in the air, but she couldn't see any hands. They appeared to be stick-like, and dark gray or brown in color. They did not move but stood perfectly still. The two girls riding as passengers began to scream for the driver to leave the area immediately. Terrified, they drove away and continued to drive around for the next two hours before they had enough courage to return to their homes. (Source: Albert S.
