 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 May 3

1961 - On or about this date a hemispherical craft with portholes was sighted resting on a road in Union Mills, Indiana. The time was ten o'clock in the evening. It took off when a car came close to it. Its estimated diameter was four meters, height 2.5 meters, and it bore "fluorescent lights." (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 518).

1968 - During the evening hours of the night of May 2nd-3rd Miss Shane Kurz, a 19-year-old woman, had watched a luminous cigar-shaped object in the sky for two hours from her home in Westmoreland, New York. It moved in her direction, stopped, then shot straight upward into the sky, turning red in color as it did so. At four o'clock in the morning her mother came into her room and found her lying on top of her bedsheets with her robe and slippers on; both were covered with dried mud, as were her legs. Earlier in the night her mother had found her missing from her bedroom and the door open.

Ms. Kurz stayed out of school for the next two days because of depression and recurrent nightmares. Her eyes were causing her pain, and two reddish ring-shaped marks appeared on her lower abdomen. Her menstrual cycle stopped after this incident and did not return again for a year. Later under hypnosis she remembered that she went outdoors in response to hearing her name called, and saw a saucer with windows and a revolving rim hovering close to the ground. It approached her and lifted her inside with a beam of light, after which she found herself in a bare white room. A man shorter than her, with no nose, wearing what looked like a dark "motorcycle jacket" and another being, a "doctor" in a long coat, forced her onto an exam table. He inserted a long needle into her navel. A third being, the "leader," next entered the room. The UFOnauts all had very "penetrating" eyes with no pupils. They said to her, "We've watched you. You're the one. We want you as a mate." He also said that they came "from very, very far." The others went out and the leader proceeded to undress her and then rape her. He told her she would not remember. She was floated down to the ground again by a light beam. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1968; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-26, citing Hans Holzer, The Ufonauts).

1975 - While flying over Lake Tequesquitengo near Mexico City, Mexico the pilot of a Monteil Piper PA-24 felt a strange vibration, and saw a domed disc three meters in diameter pacing him to his right. There was another identical looking craft on his left. A third disc approached his airplane head on, and he felt a jolt, as if his plane was being lifted. The Mexico City Air Trafffic Control radar showed the UFOs making sharp turns. (Source: Richard F. Haines, case investigation, report dated August 3, 1975).

2002 - In Alvear, La Pampa Province, Argentina several young men were walking home at midnight along a deserted road when out of nowhere a female figure with long black hair appeared in front of them, wearing a light flowing gown. The strange figure was very pale and appeared elderly. It repeatedly asked for assistance from the men in an urgent tone. Terrified, the men ran from the area and later returned with other witnesses, but could find no trace of the strange apparition. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 2002 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Fabio Picasso).

2003 - At 3:30 a.m. a man was sitting on his back porch in North Richland Hills, Texas looking out at the horse pasture behind his home. The pasture held several horses but he could not see them because they were at the other end of the field. He heard what sounded like the horses kicking a metal sheet and squealing loudly. He also heard dogs barking in the distance. Just as he strained to look over to the horse shed everything became completely quiet. The witness started to feel scared by the eerie silence, and as he stepped off his porch he started to hear a low whirring sound. He next saw a light beam flash on the ground in the middle of the pasture. The source was a black craft, hovering about 100 feet above the ground. It was shooting flashes of light at the ground from a pod on the right end of the craft. The craft had a multicolored mist or hot looking gas on the bottom of it, on the left side was what looked like a red rectangular window. Inside he could see movement, but at that moment he began to feel sick. The craft appeared to be about 50 feet long with a dull blue light on the top. After five minutes the whirring sound faded and the craft hovered silently for another two seconds before it zipped straight up and out of sight without a sound. He then noticed that the electrical power seemed to be off in the neighborhood. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 2003 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Peter Davenport, NUFORC).
