Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1951 - A bluish-white object circled around and paced an American Airlines flight 100 miles southwest of Dodge City, Kansas at 3:20 a.m. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p 13).
1961 - Over 20 high qualified witnesses including several doctors watched a 30 meter long metallic ovoid object maneuver at low altitude in Ocumare del Tuy, Venezuela and then land at 10:30 a.m. A total of three objects were seen, manuevering silently in and out of the nearby hills and dodging trees and a low speed. Flattened grass was found at the landing site. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, September 1961; Coral E. Lorenzen, Flying Saucers: The Startling Evidence of the Invasion from Outer Space, p. 185; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case #5930).
1961 - That same afternoon in Texas a stationary silver disc hung in the air over Tyndall Air Force Base. It was seen by two married women, Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Davis, at 4:30 p.m. The object appeared to be revolving as it hovered. After 15 minutes it finally rose higher and higher into the air and disappeared. A Project Blue Book "unknown."

Tyndall AFB, Texas - 1961
1962 - Several luminous discs were seen four times in 35 minutes during an Argentine Navy aircraft flight from Espora Naval Air Base in Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The plane's radio failed completely during the close encounters. (Sources: Robert Enrique Banchs, Las Evidencias del Fenomeno OVNI, citing Antonio Ribera; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 33).
1963 - Four pink wheels spun in the sky while flying from the east to the west very fast in succession. They were witnessed by a civilian named Jackson in Pequannock, New Jersey at 10:50 p.m. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 8363; Don Berliner, Project Blue Book Unknowns, p. 31).
1964 - (1) High School cafeteria employees watched the landing
and take-off of a round UFO from the school grounds in Hopkinsville, Kentucky
at nine o'clock in the morning. The object emitted four beams of light.
The grass had been flattened at the landing site. (2) On that same day
a UFO was tracked by radar at the White Sands Stallion Missile Range in
New Mexico. (Source: (1) George D. Fawcett, Flying Saucers,

1965 - A silent gray object that looked like a blimp or dirigible hovered low over the New England Power Plant in Salem, Massachusetts at 5:00 p.m. (Sources: Raymond E. Fowler, case file investigation, report dated July 13, 1965; Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 332).
Salem, Massachusetts - 1965
1967 - On this evening Mr. Tyrode, a 45-year-old school teacher, saw a glow and then an object shaped like an inverted plate emitting a greenish-blue light in Evillers, France. It flew less than 20 meters above his car at at estimated speed of 40 km/hour. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case # 845).
1968 - Sr. T. Banescu of La Florida, Argentina was walking home early in the morning around 3:00 a.m. when he observed a luminous sphere coming down rapidly from the sky. It landed about 300 meters away. Shortly after that he heard footsteps behind him but noticed nothing strange about then. When he got to the house he encountered a creature no more than 39" tall, with big ears and luminous green in color. He had his arms crossed and was rocking his body slightly back and forth. Mr. Banescu became frightened and attempted desperately to unlock the door of his house to get away, and when he looked back again the little man had disappeared. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-27, citing Carlos Banchs).
1973 - Sr. Onilson Patero, a 40-year-old salesman, was
driving home to Catanduva in Sao Paolo, Brazil during
a rainstorm. He had given a lift to a young hitchhiker and had dropped
him off at Itajobi. At around 3:00 a.m., about seven miles from Catanduva
on Highway 321, his car began to lose power and his car's radio filled
with static interference. He noticed a circle of light moving about inside
his car and he pulled over to the side of the road, thinking a truck was
about to pass. He then saw a hovering object about 50 feet ahead and 40
feet above the road, and at the same time the interior of his car began
to heat up. Patero felt a lack of air so he opened the door and stepped
out. A "curtain of light" began to form around the object, and the heat
and lack of air diminished. He could now see that the object was not a
helicopter. He next saw a "tube of light" hit the car and, as it did,
the car became transparent. He fainted. About an hour later two young
men found Sr. Patero laying in the mud and rain. He recovered consciousness,
crying out "they were trying to get me!" He was taken to a hospital in
Catanduva and later released. Over the next several days he suffered physical
ailments of an unknown cause. Eleven months later Patero became the principal
experiencer in an abduction event in which he vanished for five days,
turning up again in Colatina 700 km away. Under regressive hypnosis he
described one of his abductors as the same individual he had given a ride
to in this case. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT:

Dr. Max Berezovsky, APRO).
1996, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia - At 2:00 a.m. a woman
was walking her dog when she noticed two short glowing beings with no
apparent clothing, and dark eyes. The beings seemed to reassure her mentally,
then faded from view. Possible missing time involved. (Source: Albert
S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1996, case #2608, citing Keith Basterfield).
