Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1949 -U.S. Air Force Captain W. Donnelly sighted a flight of four disc-shaped object north of Rosarita Beach, Baja California, Mexico. The objects had a cavorting flight formation. (Sources: Edward Sullivan, CSI/LA investigation files, letter dated April 6, 1952; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume I, p. 20).
1953 - A very large, 300-foot diameter disc-shaped object zoomed by a RAF Vampire reconaisance jet from West Malling RAFB, Kent, England at 10:00 a.m. The encounter lasted 30 seconds. Radar returns were picked up from the same or another UFO at 1439 hours. (Sources: Timothy Good, Above Top Secret, p. 35; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 22).
1954 - Oued Beth, Morocco. Maroc Presse reported that one of its employees, Mr. E., the driver of a delivery truck and "a man of sane judgment and excellent eyesight," observed an object flying over the Beth River. "I am positive it was not an aircraft or any known machine but a circular, flat craft which had the appearance of copper. It flew normally for some time, and then it suddenly flipped over. Therefore, I was able to see the whole disc and was amazed when it came down into a field where it landed on edge, very gently. Almost immediately it rose into the sky at great speed, resumed its horizontal position and was soon lost to sight." (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 241; Maroc-Presse, November 4, 1954).
1954 - At 6:00 a.m. a reportedly reliable witness encountered a thick fog in Palavas, Herault, France. Inside was a hovering blue, disc-shaped UFO.

1954 - Two dwarf humanoids wearing metallic suits with helmets were seen in a thick fog at 6:30 a.m. at a farm in Mareil-sur-Loir, France. They glided over ground.

(Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 4123, citing Jean Sider, Dossier 1954 et l'Imposture Rationaliste, p. 224).
1954 - At 6:30 a.m. in Burleson, Texas a witness named McDowell saw a 10-foot diameter disc-shaped object with a red-orange glow.

(Source: Jacques Vallee, Anatomy of a Phenomenon, p. 136).
1957 - At 3:00 a.m. at the Stallion Missile Test Site on the White Sands, New Mexico proving grounds an Army patrol in a jeep saw an orange, "apparently controlled," luminous object on the ground near the site of the first A-bomb explosion.

Two U.S. Army witnesses. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 420).

1968 - Two 15-year-old boys in Houston, Texas sighted a domed disc-shaped object with black dots, possibly windows, at 4:15 p.m. "Angel hair" residue was found in the aftermatch of the sighting, the "…substance is fibrous, elastic, relatively strong, somewhat sticky, and white in color." (Source: NICAP files, sighting a newspaper clipping December 19, 1968).
1971 - Trudy Van Riper was awakened at around four o'clock in the morning by her cats "growling and carrying on" on her ranch near Austin, Texas. When she opened the door they ran inside and hid under the living room couch. When she looked out the window, she saw an "elliptical moon" object lighting up her backyard and part of the pasture beyond. Going to the front door, she discovered a strange little vehicle that had landed on her lawn, which resembled a Volkswagen without fenders or doors. From the top emerged three small men dressed in dark garments, one of whom communicated with her telepathically, saying, "Are there any pigs in that field? They are hungry." Then she saw, near the men, two peculiar looking creatures covered with fuzzy hair, but standing erect. She retreated back inside her house, and when she looked out again the object was airborne, and the "moon" was gone. Later she learned that several pigs had been lost at a nearby farm.

1973 - Sr. Rincon Castillo received telepathic messages to go to a certain isolated area near a lagoon, 150 kilometers south of Santa Fe de Bogota, Colombia; at 8:00 p.m. After arriving there he was then instructed to go to a clearing in the woods. There he was told he would find a metallic sphere, which he did. The sphere was small and covered with tiny holes. It suddenly started shooting bright beams of light in different directions. The whole area was next illuminated by a bright glow, and two huge, saucer-shaped objects appeared and flew directly overhead. Both were dripping water and were emitting a strong heat wave. They were silent and had three rotating white spheres on the bottom, and were emitting multicolored lights. The objects then descended out of sight and dimmed their lights. After that, two tall humanoid figures wearing uniforms and helmets with transparent visors approached Castillo from the woods and told him not to be afraid. The two figures took him to a nearby clearing, where a flying craft now appeared overhead, shooting down a beam of yellow light that surrounded both the witness and the humanoids. He was then transported inside the object where he saw two more tall, smiling entities. The beings removed their helmets; they had handsome human features, and shoulder length, blond hair. Some of the men wore tight fitting silvery outfits with orange boots and gloves, while others wore brown outfits. The witness was given information about upcoming Earth changing events, and was given an extensive tour onboard the craft. (Sources: BUFORA Journal, 1973, p. 60; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1277; Albert S. Rosales, 1973 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 1213, citing Enigma, issue # 30).
1973 - Mr. N. Hearn reported a close encounter with a UFO while driving on the golf course in Lewisville, Texas at 9:10 p.m. Buffeting of his vehicle was caused by turbulence from the UFO.

This occurred during heavy UFO activity in the area. Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1973 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 1873, citing Paul G. Johnson & Joan L. Jeffers, The Pennsylvania Bigfoot).
1975 - Dick Jackson, age 56,
awoke late at night around two o'clock in the morning in Bokoelia, Florida
and stepped outside his trailer home. The next thing he recalls,
he found himself standing beside a domed object, with steps
leading up to a door. He climbed the steps and was invited in. The
interior was a single round compartment, 24 feet in diameter and 8
feet high, with a small control panel. There were eight crewmembers
inside, but only one spoke to him. This man was five feet tall,
stocky and of dark complexion, and elderly looking. He wore brown
coveralls with no shirt. Speaking in English, he told Mr. Jackson that
they came from the planet "Planteh." They have been preparing "a
neighboring planet" for colonization by Earth people, and Jackson was
asked to help then recruit colonists; perfect health
was offered to him in return for his assistance. After 90 minutes
of conversation Jackson left the craft, which took off with great
speed. Then he found himself in his trailer. He told his 16-year old
son of the experience. The case appears to have episodes of distorted
reality or missing time. (Source: HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid
