 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 November 19

1954 - P. J. Gunn, an assistant professor of art at Oregon State University and an ex-U.S. Navy aviation cadet, sighted a bright white light hovering over Corvallis, Oregon at 4:15 p.m. It remained stationary for 8.5 to nine minutes, then crossed 20 degrees of sky in 3-3.5 minutes.

1964 - Approximately 1,400 miles east of Tokyo, Japan over the Pacific Ocean (34.92 N, 164.08 E) several military personnel sighted a bright white, unidentified flashing light. The light traveled from horizon to horizon in 20 seconds. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

In 1967, a brightly lit object hovered over a field, and then landed at Gull Lake, near Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada. A large circular burned area was found at the landing site. At the same time John Keel saw a nocturnal light hovering over the "TNT" area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

In 1968, shortly after five p.m., a disc, red and bluish in color, hovered in the sky southwest of Meriden, Connecticut. The five witnesses viewed the object thru a telescope, and it moved slowly from side to side as it hovered. (Source: Meriden (CT) Morning Record, November 20, 1968). Later that evening a UFO was detected on radar at the Cumbica AFB in Brazil at 8:45 p.m. At 11:00 p.m. four college students in Pirassununga, Brazil saw a blue disc approach within 30 meters of the car, at which point their car engine failed. After ten minutes the UFO moved off down the road in front of the car and they were able to restart it and continue. However, their car nearly ran down three tall figures standing in the road who were dressed in pale-blue spacesuits. (Sources: Walter Buhler, FSR Case Histories, April 1971, p. 13; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1005).

1973 - A truck engine stalled in Sidrolandia, Brazil on this night in 1973. Farmer Joao Rodrigues Terra and his farmhand Djalma Da Silva Faques were driving to the farmer's house when they observed a a bright orange oval-shaped object 12 meters in diameter emerge from a strange, low white cloud. It flew at only one meter above the ground and came to within 30 meters. It had a dome on top and bottom. The surface was shiny and metallic with a luminous fan-shaped beam directed from the top, upwards. The UFO continually changed colors. They had trouble starting their pickup truck, and then could only creep along as the UFO paced them only 30 meters away for the next ten minutes. Faques, the passenger, observed the UFO closely and could clearly see a small human figure inside. The truck functioned normally after the object sped away, but its new battery failed three days later and could not be recharged.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-76; Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume 2: A Thirty Year Report, p. 255).

On this night in 1975 in Oak Brook, Illinois, a boy saw a domed disc hovering near his home. The UFO had a red light on top and two clear lights on the side. That same night a red oval-shaped UFO followed a car in Saint Thomas, Pennsylvania. It hovered, and then disappeared. . (Source: CUFOS News Bulletin, February 1976, p. 13).

In 1978 a group of oil company technicians made a motion picture of a UFO in Kuwait, but the film came out blank when developed. (Source: Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II, p. 154, citing The Guardian, November 24, 1978).

In 1980 an attorney in Sedalia, Missouri observed a cigar-shaped object in the early morning hours. The description was the same as an object seen in Huntsville earlier that night. That night, driving near Longmont, Colorado, an art teacher and his wife encountered an intense blue beam of light and felt the rear wheels of their car lifted off the pavement. They then experienced an hour of missing time. Under hypnosis they recounted being abducted and submitting to a medical exam. The wife, who was two months pregnant, discovered a rectangular mark on her lower abdomen immediately after the experience.

1982 - At 11:10 p.m. a 36-year-old nurse on her way to work noticed a green light over a field directly ahead of her, south of Temperanceville, Virginia and not far from the NASA facility at Wallops Island. She stopped her car and looked in the direction of the light, and noticed that it was on a circular silvery grayish object that was shining a bright shaft of light onto the field. In the center of the object she could see a large bubble like window illuminated by a soft white light. Inside the window she could see three dark human-like figures moving around, visible from the waist up. The object then moved slowly towards her car flying over it, making a humming sound like a generator. It flew towards the bay and disappeared.

1992 -- In Moscow, Maine at 6:20 in the morning on this date, a 25-30-foot diameter saucer hovered three feet above the ground, only twelve feet away from the witness. (Source: MUFON UFO Journal, June 1993).

2001 -- A V-shaped bank of lights flew from north to south over Augusta, Tennessee at 5:30 a.m. It made no sound, and the rear lights where offset a little from a straight line. That night, at 11:45 p.m., five bronze lights, each elliptical in shape and all the same size, flew over Maplewood, Minnesota in a V-formation. They made no sound. The witness was aware of the Leonid meteor shower, and said these lights could not have been meteors. (Source: George Filer, MUFON UFO Journal, January 2002, p.17).
