 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 November 9

1953 - At 11:45 p.m. a large red, cigar-shaped or cylindrical object hovered in the sky over Omaha, Nebraska. Several satellite objects orbited around it. (Source: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers Uncensored, p. 136; Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A History. 1953: August-December,

1954 - Phillip Molava, age 13, living at an orphanage in Shirley, Surrey, England at the time, had been mysteriously losing baby rabbits from his locked rabbit hutch, so he was keeping watch on it by night. At around 1:00 a.m. he noticed a small, white, discus-shaped object floating toward him at about five mph. It had no lights and no markings, and was only as big as a large plate. As it flew low over him, he jumped up trying to grab it, but could not quite reach it and it flew away. The next day, or perhaps a day later, he felt almost paralyzed all day, and was in the infirmary. That night, he was awaked in his bed when he saw a misty mass, as wide as the bed, form at the foot of the bed. It passed up the bed toward his head, “freezing” his body with cold as it passed. Then it stopped, and three figures materialized from the mist at the foot of his bed. They next moved up to him, two on one side, one on the other, and bent over him. He had the feeling they were going to help him, to “make me at ease with myself.” They were dressed in black, or dark, robes, like the habits worn by monks, so he could not see their faces, and could not describe their hands. He tried to speak to them, but they did not answer. He had no memory of their departure. The next day he felt well again. The rabbits were shortly afterwards taken from him by the orphanage.

1954 - At 6:00 a.m. a 25 meter in diameter disc-shaped object tilted, 50 meters over a field in Inchy, Nord department, France. It then rose vertically and vanished as the witnesses approached. (Source: Jean Sider, Dossier 1954 et l'Imposture Rationaliste, p. 129).

1954 - Two villagers in Bois de Villers, Belgium reported the landing of a two-meter-high "flying egg" in a pasture. Screams seemed to be emanating from it. (Source: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers Uncensored, p. 251; Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 334).

1954 - A nine meter long, bullet-shaped cigar hovered at 30 meters altitude over a farm in Froberville, Seine-Maritime department, France. Two observers ran beneath it. The object then made a whistling sound, brightened, and shot up into the sky. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 260).

1954 - At 12:30 a.m. a house in Damascus, Ohio was shaken by some outside force. Next, the witness looked out and observed a 30 meter long, glowing metallic ovoid object hovering over a nearby school. When a jet circled the area, the UFO vanished. (Sources: Walter N.Webb, NICAP case files; APRO Bulletin, March 1955).

1956 - A long, narrow, fuselage-shaped object with a series of bright orange lights was sighted by an airman flying over Destin, Florida at 6:00 p.m. in a U.S. Air Force RF-84F aircraft from the 3242rd reconaisance squadron. (Sources: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 28; Loren E. Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1956: November-December, p. 14).

1957 - At 1:00 a.m. a civilian driving his car home from work in Lake City, Missouri observed a hovering object 16 meters long. It had an elongated shape, and hovered 50 feet above the ground. His car engine died as he neared the object's position. When the object left the performance of the engine returned to normal. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 439).

1957 - In Bedford, Indiana a UFO was seen by a Mr. Merry at 9:10 p.m. His car stalled, and his head was covered with burns following the close encounter. On the same night just south of the same town a woman named Baxter also had her car stopped by a domed saucer, which rose from the ground, hovered, and then flew off over the hills. (Sources: Frank Edwards, Fate magazine, March 1958, pp. 27 & 32; Loren E. Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1957: November 7-12, p. 66).

1962 - At 8:30 p.m. a V-shaped, glowing object split up into six similar objects over Pharr, Texas and quickly dispersed. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, report uploaded April 16, 2005).

1967 - Miss Dianne Marable and Mrs. Pearl Robins, nurses, were driving home to Tennessee Ridge and had reached Erin, Tennessee at 11:40 p.m. when they noticed a luminous object in the sky, which they first mistook for the moon. It approached and landed 50 feet in front of them, covering the entire highway. It was dome shaped, in part a fiery orange- yellow color, and in part ash black. Inside the object they could see five dark greenish creatures, four feet tall, "milling about some type of machinery." After five minutes of watching it, they began to approach more closely but the object then swiftly rose up. It traveled a short distance beside their car, then it landed again in a field. The two women again tried to approach it by driving up a gravel road when its lights when out. They could no longer see it, though they could see a bright red light in the sky. The young women then drove home, where they discovered they had experienced 30 minutes of missing time.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1967-110, citing Budd Hopkins; Thomas E. Bullard, MUFON 1981 Conference Proceedings, p. 48).

1968 - A homemaker saw a large disc-shaped object hovering over the house in Lakeland, Florida. Several human-like figures could be seen through some lighted portholes. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1968 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 2408, citing Brad Steiger & Joan Whritenour, The Flying Saucer Invasion).

1968 - A couple in Lorain, Ohio was awakened at 5:45 a.m. by a loud thump on the roof of their trailer. The bump was followed by the sound of something moving near their bedroom window. When they looked out the window, they saw a huge face staring down at them. The creature’s two front paws or hands were resting on the windowsill. The husband lept out of bed and frantically searched for his gun, but by the time he located it the creature was gone from the window. Running on two legs, it dashed around the east side of the house, weaving from side to side, and crossed two streets before disappearing into the woods. The creature stood about six-feet tall. Its front side was grayish brown, and the rest of the body was a darker shade of the same color. According to the couple, it resembled “a large bipedal lion of around 600 pounds.” (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1968 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 2900, citing Jerome Clark & Loren Coleman, Creatures of The Goblin World).

1968 - At 11:30 p.m. in El Salto, Santiago, Chile two young sisters, Afrodit and Eugenia Lovazzano El-Far, 12 and 9 years of age respectively, were playing on a Sunday night in front of their home when they saw a large ball of fire approaching from the nearby mountains. It came suddenly to a stop in front of the girls. Afrodit saw it first as she was on her bicycle, and noticed the red light suddenly appear from behind the mountain, resembling a brilliant star. The red light seemed “gelatinous” in nature and soon changed to a sphere with a greenish tint. Both girls could now clearly see what appeared to be a small “woman” inside the luminous sphere. The strange entity had a large mouth, which seemed to be moving constantly, apparently calling the girls; it also had a pair of large pointed ears. Moments later, the small woman exited the sphere and approached Afrodit, who tried to run but was unable to move due to a strong “pulling” force. It pulled her by her blouse and suspended her in midair. When Eugenia reached the kitchen door the force seemed to release Afrodit, who suffered from earaches, hoarseness, and what appeared to have been scratches on her waist area. It was later determined that a third girl, 12-year-old Monica Patricia Lagos also saw the bizarre incident, which she described as a ball of fire that floated around over the ground and then disappeared in a flash. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1968 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, citing http://www.toc.cl/articulo_013.htm).

1969 - In one of a series of incidents involving Stella Lansing, she produced the following account by a 9-year-old of an encounter on this night from Palmer, Massachusetts. “We went riding in the car and I saw lights. We flashed to it and it flashed back. We clapped the light on it and it began to come closer. We saw a black man about eight feet tall and I saw something like a wolf, but it was not a wolf. It had a strange body, two and a half feet long. It had three fingers and a face.” (Source: Berthold Schwarz, FSR, 19720105; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1969-55 (A1069)).

1973 - A fleet of discs, 9-11 objects in a V-formation, flew over the western shore of Mobile Bay, Alabama. They moved at a speed higher than the speed of normal conventional aircraft, and had a pale yellow (or gold) transparency. There were three witnesses; the main witness was a 29 year old repeater. (Sources: Robert D. Boyd, A Comparative Unit, p. 248; UNICAT, case # 473; Richard F. Haines, Project Delta, p. 189; Dwight Connelly, Skylook, May 1976, p. 7).

1978 - An acorn-shaped domed UFO with flashing red lights landed at Oil Field Centre No. 24 in the Kuwait desert at 12:50 a.m. The UFO caused EM effects including the disruption of all telecommunications and the malfunction of the pumping station electrical equipment. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, January 1979, p. 1; Jane Thomas, UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1979, p. 15, citing Cronica, November 14, 1978; Richard Hall, MUFON UFO Journal, January 1979, p. 5; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II. A Thirty Year Report, pp. 300, 351).

Kuwait Oil Field Centre UFO Landing 1978

1978 - During a spate of other close encounters in the area, including a car pacing, a 24-year-old taxi driver named Wright spotted a bizarre humanoid shape crossing Sugarloaf Road in Risdon Vale, Tasmania, Australia at 3:15 a.m. A green shape drifted out into road, shaped like a four-foot tall triangle, 2.5 feet wide at its base. The taxi's radio abruptly quit, accompanied by a high-pitched squeaking noise. The shape was described as green in color about one and a half meters tall and 3/4 meters wide at the base, it tapered to a narrow top. The shape drifted out into the road and at the same time the taxi radio emitted a high-pitched squeal as the driver broke hard stopping only 5 meters from the shape. At five feet away the triangle figure vanished into thin air. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, September 1979, p. 8; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, A1988; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vechicle Interference, p. 73).

1978 - At 8:45 p.m. three military Coast Guardsmen, including the main witness named Valentino, were driving near the ocean five miles west of Silvi Marina, Abruzzi, Italy when they were buzzed by a one-meter in diameter, intense red ball of light that caused radio interference. The UFO first rose up from the surface of the seea at a 45 degree angle, flew straight at them for 250-300 meters. The light then shot up into the sky, and then zoomed off to the east. The UFO was not seen on radar, but was also witnessed by two fishermen. (Sources: Jane Thomas, UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1979, p. 15, citing La Razon, November 12, 1978; Allan Hendry, International UFO Reporter, October 1979, p. 18; Lumieres dans la Nuit, December 1981, p. 34; UNICAT, case # 114, citing Maurizio Verga).

1979 - During the day an unusually bright light in sky split into two equally bright objects over Easterhouse, Glasgow, Scotland. They moved around the sky before reuniting, then vanished into thin air. Ron Halliday, UFO Scotland: The Secret History of Scotland's UFO Phenomenon, p. 65).

1979 - On this evening Robert Taylor, a forestry worker, was walking his dog in Dechmont Law, Scotland when he came across a large ovoid or spherical object on tripod landing gear in a woodland clearing. This UFO dropped two 1.5 foot naval mine-shaped objects with protruding spikes, which floated up to him and attached to his trousers leg. They began to drag him towards the landed craft. This was accompanied by a suction noise and a pungent odor,and at this point he passed out and remained unconscious for the next 40 minutes. He came to face down on the ground, and experienced a choking odor in the air, a blinding headache, a burning sensation on his chin, itching on his left thigh, and he felt extremely weak. After a few minutes he managed to crawl to his pickup truck and drive home. Ground traces were found at the landing site. He suffered lasting physiological effects including headaches, itching, thirst, and general weakness.

Schuessler, UFO-Related Human Physiological Effects, p. 88).

1988 - At 9:35 p.m. a 35-year-old woman driving home in Maylene, Alabama spotted a bright light "new to the area;" she became curious and stopped her car. A light from behind the trees rose up and crossed over her car, and the witness could see a structured, 40-foot wide disc-shaped craft. The woman next found herself driving home again, and she reports having had a brief out-of-body experience during the encounter. The entire incident lasted ten minutes. (Source: Jeff & Karen Ballard, MUFON field investigation case files, case # 890712; Dan Wright, MUFON UFO Journal, December 1989, p. 5).

1989 - A shiny metallic rectangular UFO flew very low over Proveshenia Prospekt, Petrograd, Russia on this night. (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1991, p. 233).

1990 - A woman and her two children encountered humanoids in their bedroom in Ann Arbor, Michigan at around two a.m. Possible abduction. (Source: Shirley Coyne, Michigan MUFON).

1991 - A strange looking, cube-shaped object was observed by airport personnel at Dyce Airport, Aberdeen, Scotland at 12:15 p.m. It was viewed through binoculars, and was definitely not a conventional aircraft. (Source: Ron Halliday, UFO Scotland: The Secret History of Scotland's UFO Phenomenon, p. 105).

1991 - A man was riding around on some back roads in Daviston, Alabama on this night when he saw a bright light in the trees about 150 yards away. He next saw the light come out of the trees and then noticed a round but flattened "cloud" that emerged behind the light. The cloud was following the bright light and they both flew over the witness and his vehicle. The light and cloud lit up the road around him, and the vehicle's engine then went completely dead. The next thing he remembers was traveling further down the same road and noticing a white ball and two clouds behind him. Upon reaching home his family noticed that he smelled like "burnt cinnamon." He also found reddish purple stains on his hands that he could not explain. His vehicle had two splotches, 4-5 inches long and wide, on the front driver's side. He soon developed health problems a few weeks after the incident, and he noted that he had experienced a time loss. Later, under hypnosis, he recalled that the bright light had really been a saucer-shaped vehicle. He had attempted to grab his shotgun during the abduction, but was prevented by a four-foot tall Grey humanoid who took him onboard the object. Inside the craft his eyes were examined and apparently an implant was removed from behind one of them. The being who was smaller and brown in color performed the surgery. Following that he was taken to an upper floor inside the craft, and there he encountered humans in military style coveralls. One was apparently a flag rank officer. There he lost consciousness while he was being examined again. On waking up, he found himself being helped by an athletic looking young soldier with short cropped hair. The next thing he remembers was being escorted back to his vehicle by the Grey alien. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1991 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 2644, citing John C. Thompson).

1992 -  Mrs. Melitta Walter was sitting in her living room in Magdeburg, Germany at 8:30 p.m. when she heard a very deep humming sound coming from outside her house. When she looked out the window she observed a bright shining, flat cylindrical craft slowly flying over the roof. It was only about 50 meters away and at about 20 meters altitude. The witness could see several man-like occupants moving behind a large, wide illuminated window. She described the object as a flat cylinder with position lights on the left, right and back. Within a minute the object vanished behind the wall of her house. (Source: Illobrand von Ludwiger, Best UFO Cases - Europe, p. 42). 

1995 - At 7:00 p.m. Ada Arroyo, director of a local nursing home in Caguas, Puerto Rico, heard a scream similar to those made by a lamb being slaughtered, coming from outside. She went outside on the patio and saw a strange hairy figure, grayish in color, covering its body with a pair of wings. It had a flattened, vulpine face, with enormous red eyes. The creature held her gaze with its mesmerizing eyes before taking off into the air, quickly vanishing from sight. (Sources: Scott Corales, Fate magazine, October 1998; Albert S. Rosales, 1995 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 3260, citing Scott Corrales).

1996 - Alessandro Boscolo and two friends were driving home near Isola Verde, Italy when Boscolo stopped his vehicle to relieve himself. He soon noticed that the whole area around him was completely illuminated, as if the full Moon was overhead. Having got back into the vehicle with his two friends, they saw that the light was coming from a very bright source in a nearby field, and they next noticed movement coming from some nearby trees. Suddenly, three to four short Grey beings, with large oval-shaped heads, scampered with amazing speed towards the light source on the field. Frightened, Boscolo and his friends drove away from the scene at high speed. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1996 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 3510, citing El Dragon Invisible, CUN).

2002 -  A family in Arkansas City, Kansas observed an immense boomerang-shaped craft at 9:30 p.m. It was silent, lightless, with a shape that blocked out the stars behind it as it flew by. They later saw the same object flying to the southeast, directly over their house. Their dogs barked frantically during the fly-over. (Source: UFO Magazine (US), February 2003, p. 22).

2004 - A bunch of disc-like lights were seen hovering on top of a Greyhound Bus traveling on Hwy 6 from Ericksdale to Ashern in Manitoba, Canada. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Wtichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 47, citing Chris Rutkowski).

2005 - A diamond-shaped craft was seen over Sleights, North Yorkshire, England at 8:30 p.m. The object had an unusual powerful, white/yellow, rotating beacon/searchlight at its rear. (Source: British Ministry of Defense, case # 2005-118).

2006 - At 4:30 p.m. a witness in Kosse, Limestone County, Texas reported seeing a pen-shaped or oblong metallic cylinder-shaped object puff out a cloud, and then try to hide behind it. (Source:Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, November 2006 webpage, report uploaded December 7, 2006).

2007 - Two rows of 6-8 dull orange disks in a shallow V shape appeared to be fixed to the bottom of a boomerang or chevron-shaped object flying silently over Frisco, Texas as 8:30 p.m. The sighting lasted under 30 seconds.
