Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1954 - At 11:00 a.m. in the morning Alberto Perego watched about 100 white spots traveling in the sky over Rome, Italy with short white trails. They flew in formations of two, three, four, seven, and twelve for over a two hour period. They often would form lozenge-shaped formations of four objects ov V-shaped formations of seven. They executed curves, and an "angel hair" residue fell to the ground. On the same day several unknown radar blips were tracked over England for a two hour period.

1957 - North of Seoul, South Korea a barrel-shaped object, bluish-white and luminous, was seen close to the ground in the morning. Its reflection could be seen in a pool of water. It rose and vanished "like a light switched off." (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 433).
1957 - At a few minutes after midnight two men, Martinez and Gallegos, were driving near Santa Fe, New Mexico when an ovoid object came down and hovered over their car, making a humming sound.

1957 - In Everittstown, New Jersey that same evening John Trasco saw a brilliant, egg-shaped object hovering in front of a barn. He was next confronted by a one-meter tall being with a putty-colored face and froglike eyes. He thought the dwarf said in broken English: "We are peaceful people, we only want your dog. " The little man, who was dressed in a green uniform with shiny buttons, and wore what looked like a green tam-o-shanter cap with gloves that had shiny objects at the tips of each finger, fled when Mr. Trasco turned down his request. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 427).
1957 - At 8:30 p.m. two domed discs were sighted by two people driving on US highway 40 in New Castle, Delaware.

yellowish-white sphere that was hovering over a hilltop about four kilometers
away. From the top and bottom of the object came cones of light that
illuminated the countryside and the clouds. Radio reception was blocked
throughout the observation, except for a very powerful signal at one
shortwave wavelength, modulated, but not in Morse code. The object rose
slowly toward the south. (Sources: Alexander Mebane, 1957 Saucer Wave

1988 - At 10:00 p.m. a silent, mysterious low-flying "airplane" and a mushroom-shaped disc were sighted in Vittsjo, Sweden. Television interference and flashing lights were reported at the same time. (Source: AFU Sweden case file catalogue, case 34).
1989 - Early in the pre-dawn hours a significant and well-documented abduction case occurred on this day in Kansas, perhaps one of the most persuasive cases on the objective reality of the UFO abduction phenomenon to be reported. Two women, "Susan" and "Jennifer," were driving back from a business conference in Colorado to St. Louis, Missouri on this night. At 12:40 a.m. they had reached a point on Interstate I-70 near Goodland, Kansas when they started to notice some persistent, multicolored flashing lights that were maneuvering slowly over the fields alongside the highway. They stopped their vehicle several times to get a better look. On one of these occasions a ball of light descended near their vehicle and hovered over a nearby field. They then saw a cone of soft, multicolored light directed towards the ground from under the object. They also noticed strange "black waves" resembling heat waves that were approaching their vehicle.
They finally drove away experiencing several types of emotions and feelings. Upon reaching their destination they realized that, according to their time checks and their careful records of the amount of fuel their vehicle had consumed, they had lost track of two hours of their time. Later, under hypnosis by clinical hypnotherapist John Carpenter and interviewed separately, both of the witnesses recalled identical details from their abduction experience. One of them reported floating silently upwards towards a bright object overhead. She found herself in a circular room encircled by windows and panels and lit up by a diffuse pinkish white light. She encountered several five foot tall slender "Grey" humanoids with large hairless heads and tiny pointed chins. They had huge slanted dark eyes and white skin. The beings communicated with her using telepathy and seemed to glide across the floor gracefully. The witness saw no apparent clothing. She felt calm as one of the beings touched her forehead, she then watched her friend undergo some type of physical examination on a nearby table. The second woman recalled very similar details, also reporting seeing the first witness on an adjacent table. Their sketches of the humanoids were also very similar. One of the women reported experiencing a series of nose bleeds after the incident. (Sources: John S. Carpenter, MUFON UFO Journal, issue # 282; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A2285; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1989, case # 738, citing John Carpenter).
1990 - A delta-shaped object hovered and maneuvered about in the sky south of Deniliquin, New South Wales, Australia at 11:30 p.m. Then two of the objects were seen: one landed in a field, and the other buzzed a car. Both UFOs were completely silent. (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1992, p. 138).
1991 - At 3:30 a.m. a shiny crescent-shaped UFO was chased by a taxi and police east from the city of Beit She'an, Israel.

There was broken cloud cover at the time, with a light rain. (Source: UFO Magazine (UK), July 2003, p. 11).
