 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 November 4

1867 - In the middle of the afternoon a large number of black discs in groups and separately passed rapidly through the sky over Chatham, England. The procession continued for more than 20 minutes. Several groups passed silently overhead, then vanished leaving a brown, smoke-like vapor. (Source: Jerome Clark, International UFO Reporter, Spring 2003, p. 20).

1952 - At six o'clock in the morning, over a hospital in Laval, Mayenne department, France a brilliant cigar-shaped UFO changed color and then change shape into a disc-shaped object, then back into a cigar shape, and then faded away. The sighting lasted five minutes. (Source: Luminieres dans la Nuit, issue # 131).

1954 - At 6:30 a.m. a six-meter wide diameter disc was seen spinning in the sky over a farm in Le Sourn, Morbihan department, France. It flew toward the south, making multiple landings and emitting beams of light. The farm animals were frightened by it. The incident lasted 30 minutes. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 4129, citing Jean Sider, Dossier 1954 et l'Imposture Rationaliste, p. 125).

1954 - At quarter past three in the afternoon on the island of Sardinia a domed disc-shaped UFO, estimated to be 15 meters in diameter, was observed on the roadside in Nuoro, Italy near Monte Ortobene. It had grates on the bottom. After eight minutes it took off vertically making a noise. (Sources: Alberto Perego, FSR Case Histories, June 1973, p. 5; Maurizio Verga, ITACAT, Italian UFO Catalogue).

1954 - On this evening Jose Alves was fishing on the river in Pontal, Sao Paulo state, Brazil when he saw a luminous object come "wobbling" down from the sky. It was 3-4 meters (10-15 feet) in diameter, and it looked like "two washbowls joined together." It came down and hovered six feet above the ground and only a few feet away from the witness. Three small dwarfish men with dark skin and wearing white uniforms with "skull caps" emerged from the disc. They collected foliage and a sample of the river water in a metal tube. They then jumped back in the craft. The UFO rose vertically, making no sound.

Fontes, APRO Bulletin, July 1957, p. 9).

1954 - On or about this date, at night in the Amacuro Delta, Venezuela Fernando de Moya, age 39, was hunting from his launch, when he saw a luminous sphere hovering six feet above the ground. The two Indians with him fled in terror, but he approached and saw two three-foot tall figures with round heads andlarge eyes running back and forth to the sphere. They ran making little jumps, and picking up various things. They entered through one of two windows in the UFO. When they saw De Moya, they jumped into the object, which ascended vertically.

Stringfield, Inside Saucer Post...3-0 Blue, p. 68).

1971 - In Austin, Texas Trudy Van Riper was awakened by her cats growling at four o'clock in the morning. Outside a pasture was illuminated by a UFO that looked like an "elliptical moon." In her front yard a vehicle had landed on the lawn, looking like a VW Beetle without fenders. Three small men emerged, and communicated with her telepathically, "Any pigs in that field? We are hungry." (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1131, citing Trudy Van Riper, Fate, December 1972).

1975 - At 6:50 p.m. a red disc-shaped object flanked by two nocturnal lights stopped in place, then descended slowly into some woods near Lussault-sur-Loire, France. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, February 1977).

1994 - At 8:10 p.m. an orange glowing hat-shaped disc was sighted over some trees in Louhans, Saone-Loire department, France. It ascends vertically into the clouds, but was seen again that same evening between nine o'clock and eleven o'clock. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue # 329).

1999 - A triangular shaped flying object was photographed over Col de Vence, Alpes-Maritime department, France on this day. There is very good detail on the enlargements.
