 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 November 20

In 1959, at 4:15 a.m. in Adelaide Hills, South Australia a flat object with a large bubble on top was seen just before sunrise. It reflected light from the Moon, and appeared to skim above the waves on the ocean. It flew to the North, and was seen again over the city.

A gruesome case classified as spontaneous human combustion occurred on this date in 1960 in Grassy Creek, Kentucky. The burned bodies of four men and a youth were found in a car. Molten metal from the car's roof had dropped on the cremated bodies. (Source: Coral Lorenzen, APRO Bulletin, July 1963, p. 8).

In Campbells Creek, West Virginia on this day in 1966, six teenagers saw a gray man-sized creature with red eyes flying over the area. On this evening in Union City, New Jersey two women saw a UFO described as looking like a silver pumpkin. It had an antenna. Roof lights of their apartment building reflected off the bottom of the object. Across the Ohio River from West Virginia in Gallipolis, Ohio William Watson's German shepherd dog disappeared. It was found dead a week later in the center of an isolated field. The knee-high grass around the dog's body was pressed flat in a perfect circle 20 feet in diameter. Every bone in the dog's body was crushed, and no blood was in evidence. (Sources: (1) John Keel, FSR, July 1968, p. 13; David F.

1967 - At 10:00 p.m. east of Roosevelt, Utah a UFO was sighted with pulsating, rotating green, red, and amber lights. The object had a shadowy round shape below the lighted area. It moved slowly at first, then very fast, and made several maneuvers. (Source: Frank Salisbury, The Utah UFO Display, Appendix case no. 58).

1968 - The Milakovic family was driving down their farm road in Hanbury, England at 5:30 p.m. when they noticed rabbits fleeing. They then noticed a landed domed disc with white, amber, and green lights and a transparent dome in a field to the left. The brilliant object rose from the field and hovered above a house. It appeared to "quiver like a jelly." Several human-looking figures were seen walking around on the deck of the craft, bent down. The UFO left with jerky movements, and the bright lights from the craft hurt their eyes.

1969 - On Molokai Island in the Hawaiian Islands at 6:26 a.m. a US Marine Corps flight crew heard a strange sound on 255.4 MHz UHF radio frequency at the same time that a bright light flew by, changing color from green to red to white. It then disappeared. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 50-10).

1970 - At 8:00 p.m. a classic saucer-shaped UFO was seen spinning in the sky over Matlock, England. It had eight red lights on the bottom, and moved behind a cloud. During that same day, in Scunthorpe, England a silver dome-shaped UFO was seen circling in the sky over the town, and then flew away. (Sources: Larry Hatch, U database, case no. 9199; FSR, January 1971, p. 31).

1975 - The police chief of Camilla, Georgia reported that a big, round UFO hovered just 80 meters above his police station at two a.m. It had bright lights on the top and bottom. It flew away slowly to the southeast and was in view for three minutes. (Source: Michael Hitt, Georgia UFO Phenomenon 1947-1987, p. 73).

In 1978 at six o'clock in the evening GMT, a mushroom-shaped UFO, bigger than a double-decker bus, with a blue flashing light on top, hovered over a car near Rowlands Castle in Great Britain. It shot off, circled around, and hovered over the car again for an additional ten seconds. Later that night, at 9:30 p.m. local time, a UFO was seen landing remotely in Los Rios, a suburb of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. At the same time there occurred an electrical power failure. Two three-meter tall conical shaped beings or robots are seen approaching a residence containing five female witnesses, when two or three normal sized beings run in front of a passing car. (Sources: UFO Newspaper Clipping Service, January 1979, p. 11; Leonte Objio, APRO Bulletin, January 1982, p. 6).

1979 - South of Laborie, France a witness stopped his car at a certain spot at 6:30 p.m. He reported it was quite possible he felt compelled to do so. He then saw a diamond-shaped UFO hovering and maneuvering in front of him at a low altitude. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, May 1981).

In 1987 in Gulf Breeze, Florida at 4:00 p.m. Ed Walters photographs a disc-shaped object outside his home. He then receives a telepathic message in Spanish telling him, "No photographs!" (Source: Ed Walters, Gulf Breeze Sightings, p. 18).

On this date in 1989 at an army base near Tarnaszentmaria, Hungary a disc is followed moving through some nearby woods at night. A beam of light from the object struck a soldier. Ten-foot tall figures are seen in the forest. (Source: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1991, p. 234).

In Fordland, Missouri in the hour just before dawn on this date in 1992, a deer hunter was waiting next to a large tree for a deer to approach. He saw a dim glow in the brush on the far side of a creek. He then saw a four-foot tall glowing man-like figure emerge from the brush. It moved stiffly, like a robot, never turning its head or arms, and it glowed with an off-white color. (Source: Albert Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1992, case # 1447).

1992 - At seven p.m. a red triangle was seen maneuvering above the hills of Elkins, New Hampshire by a 42-year-old woman resident. It was in sight for nine minutes, and made no sound. Later that same night, on US highway 101 near Ventura, California two women were abducted from their car by large mantis-shaped, insectoid beings. One was given a medical exam; the other was guarded while the exam took place. The abduction lasted for a total of 145 minutes. (Sources: Robert W. Heslop, MUFON field investigation case files, case 960508S; UFO Newspaper Clipping Service, February 1994).

1995 - A fast moving domed disc was seen in the morning at 8 a.m. over Mount Summit, Indiana for less than a minute. It was shiny and reflected the sunlight. It shot away and was gone in 4-5 seconds. (Source: Francis Ridge, UFO Intelligence Newsletter).

2002 - At 5:45 p.m. a silent, triangular shaped object was sighted over Merritt, British Columbia. As the witness watched over a two minute period there was an accumulation of shimmering red lights in the three apexes of the object.
