 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 November 25

In 1949 a cloud cigar-shaped object was sighted by three witnesses driving between Edna and Inez, Texas at 2:30 p.m. It flew off rapidly to the south toward Edna. (Source: Kenneth Arnold & Ray Palmer, The Coming of the Saucers, p. 145).

1954 - On this evening in Calcerosa, Sicily, Italy two 12-year-old boys, G. Marziano and P. Santucci, watched three 1.2-foot-tall beings with very large heads and gray skin enter a small sphere concealed 10 meters away from them, behind some bushes. The UFO had two propellers in front that started spinning. The object took off with a hissing sound. (Sources: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers Uncensored, p. 136; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, case 343, citing Oltre Cielo).

1954 - A weatherman and an air traffic controller watched two luminous objects hover over the Cordoba, Argentina airport for two hours starting at 5:25 a.m. (Sources: Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, p.  119; Leonard H. Stringfield, CRIFO Orbit, June 1955, p. 1; Loren E. Gross, The Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse: UFOs: A History. 1954: November-December, p. 29).

1955 - State Senator S. T. Taylor reported seeing a dirigible-shaped object in La Veta, Colorado with a fat front, tapered toward the tail, which was luminous green-blue and jellylike. It first appeared overhead diving at a 45 degree angle, then reduced the angle to 30 degrees. The object was seen for 5 seconds. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Blue Book Unknowns).

1956 - At 4:30 a.m. near Hot Springs, South Dakota a USAF fighter jet from the 54th Fighter Squadron made three passes at a brilliantly lit UFO that was bobbing up and down. On the third pass the UFO was picked up on radar by the 740th ACW squadron. East of Pierre, South Dakota on highway 34, two police officers sight a UFO that plays a game of cat-and-mouse tag with their patrol car. At around 7 p.m. on the same day Mary Whelan was walking a colt on her farm in Reading, Minnesota when it was spooked by six disc-shaped objects that flew over in a semi-circle. Others horses were also frightened when these UFOs made 5-6 more passes in formation following the same maneuver. The discs gave off a green light as they flew past. (Sources: Minneapolis Star, November 28, 1956; Leonard Stringfield, CRIFO Newsletter, January 1957, p. 2; Jay Rath, The M-Files: True Reports of Minnesota's Unexplained Phenomena, p. 47).

In 1957, at 4:15 p.m., an odd round cloud observed in Indianapolis, Indiana became a rectangular object with sharp edges, and then faded away. In Mogi Mirim, Brazil all lights failed in the city at around 10 p.m. as a UFO flew overhead. (Sources: Loren Gross, UFOs: A History 1957 (Volume 9), p. 45); Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence (Volume I), p. 75).

On this date in 1964, a famous UFO humanoid case lasting several hours was thoroughly documented by UFO investigator Ted Bloecher. Two women in New Berlin, New York watched the entire operation for four hours, beginning shortly after midnight. A luminous, disc-shaped object landed on a hill at a distance of 3,800 feet away from their house. Their dog became frightened. Ten to twelve 7'-8' tall men exited the craft and appeared to engage in repair activity, working underneath the disc. They appear to be unsuccessful in their repair activities at first, until a second disc landed, presumably to lend assistance. The UFO occupants wore dark close-fitting suits. Ground marks left at the site formed equilateral imprint triangles, 4.6 meters and 6.1 meters on a side. The UFOs made a humming or droning noise when they took off. (Sources: Schwarz Berthold E. Schwarz, UFO Dynamics: Book I, p. 163; Ted Bloecher, Skylook, July 1975, p. 3, Ted Bloecher, FSR, October 1974, p. 21; UNICAT, case # 699; APRO Bulletin, April 1975, p. 3).

In 1966, while driving home in the morning daylight at 7:15 a.m. on Highway 62 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia Mr. Ury, 25-years-old, became yet another "Mothman" witness. The bird-like creature, six feet tall with a ten-foot wingspan, circled his car as he drove down the highway. He increased his speed to between 70-75 miles per hour but the creature easily kept up with his car. (Source: John Keel, FSR, July 1968, p. 8).

On this date in 1968, at just after 6 p.m. on Highway 174 outside of the town of Marcellus in upstate New York, a mother and her small son saw a domed-disc UFO with a red blinking light on top. As it approached to within 100 feet of their car the engine lost power and the radio filled with static. Their dog cried, clawed to get under the seat, and covered its eyes and ears with its paws. The UFO moved away then, but continued to pace them down the road. Once more it made a pass at the car, and again the engine lost power and the radio wouldn't work. (Sources: Gordon Lore, Jr., Strange Effects from UFOs, p. 40; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 44).

At 8 p.m. that same night a light approached a residential area in Rossville, Georgia and was witnessed by three men. The object, triangular in shape with bulging sides, appeared to descend as it approached to an altitude of 200 feet, and then flew directly overhead. It had amber lights around edge, and was completely silent. It was estimated to be about the size of two cars in length. It flew off to the southwest. (Source: NICAP case investigation files, field investigator K. Dammer).

Also in 1968, at 10:30 that night in Curico, Chile a two-meter wide disc landed on four legs. Three dwarf humanoids emerged, while a fourth was seen inside the craft. One of the beings scratched dirt from the ground, but no traces were found at the sight. The UFO made a pendulum movement during its departure. (Source: Jader Pereira, Les Extra-Terrestres, p. 222).

At perhaps the same time (10:30 p.m. EDT) a yellowish-white, glowing vertical cigar hovered silently 1/4 mile offshore from Dennis, Massachusetts. It hung in the sky about 200 feet above the water. An investigating policeman confirmed the sighting by the three intial witnesses. There was a total of seven independent witnesses. (Source: Raymond Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 355).

Dennis, Massachusetts - 1968


1970 - Four men near a railway line saw a brightly lit disc come down through the clouds in Tunstead, England at 6:53 a.m. The principal witness hid behind a tree as the UFO hung motionless in the sky for seven minutes. (Sources: Mrs. K. Smith, BUFORA Journal, August 1971, p. 26).

1975 - On this night in a field nine miles west of Goodridge, Minnesota, a disc-shaped object eight feel in diameter was seen in a field. It rose off the ground, then relanded. The witness's car stalled, and later required major tune-up repair work. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 66).

1978 - While participating in a trans-Atlantic crossing during a yatch race, the skipper of the yatch "Salamandre" watched a very shiny white disc come down to right above the boat. The greenish-blue color surrounding the object was so brilliant that it was blinding. The UFO shot off at astonishing speed. (Source: UFO Newspaper Clipping Service, May 1979, p. 15).

1978 - That night in Trier, Germany at 10 p.m. an abduction by UFO occupants occurred. A metallic, ovoid UFO with a flashing red light hovered over a car with a German couple and a nineteen-year-old American woman named Owens. The car's occupants experienced over 90 minutes of missing time. The principal abductee, the wife of an American soldier stationed in Germany, was levitated aboard the UFO. She was five months pregnant at the time. She had no memory of the abduction prior to hypnosis. During hypnosis she recalled that the aliens had huge, baldheads, and deep-set eyes. They had a greenish colored skin, with a roughness like mummy wrapping. Their hands had four fingers, and were twice the length of human fingers. Dark triangular objects with pale yellow lights were seen over Heathrow Airport and in Ducklington, England that day and evening.

A cone-shaped UFO was seen in 1980 at 10:30 p.m., three miles away from three witnesses in Minocqua, Wisconsin over Lake Tomah. The UFO flickered with red, green and white lights. It was joined by and circled by a second UFO. The objects made no sound, but did cast reflections in the lake waters. (Source: APRO Bulletin, May 1981, p. 7).

1986 - Many UFO reports were received from Wakefield, Rhode Island during the evening. A UFO at low altitude directed beams of light at cars on US Highway 1. Two silent discs paced a truck on SR 671 northeast of Winchester, Virginia at 11:10 that night. They stayed parallel to the driver's side of the vehicle, and then veered away. A radar target passed close to an airliner near the city of Magadan, Russia. It turned right over Shelekhov Bay, and achieved a top speed of 3000 kilometers per hour when it crossed the Kamchatka shoreline, where it was lost from radar screens 150 kilometers off shore. (Sources: Bob Gribble, UFO Reporting Center; MUFON Journal, November 2001, p. 8).

In 1987 an abduction occurred in Okaloosa County, Florida not far from the town of Destin. A woman reported that her 5-year-old son was apparently taken aboard a UFO that night. He had been sleeping on the couch late that night, when he told his mother that a short, robot-like entity approached him and he was levitated up and into a hovering, disc-shaped object that was in a clearing in some nearby woods. He remembered being medically examined. He also reported that his throat hurt when he tried to talk about the experience. (Sources: Timothy Good, The UFO Report 1990, p. 200; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1987, case #58, citing Donald M. Ware, MUFON).

1990 - A Navy technician sighted a dull silver-gray wingless fuselage flying from north to south at airliner speed in Milton, Florida at 12:40 p.m. (Source: Paul Ferrughilli, Computer Catalog of UFO Reports, 1988-94, case 1405).

In 1992 another abduction occurred. This time it was in Baca Grande, Colorado in the San Luis Valley, at 10:30 p.m. The last memory that the 40-year-old female witness had was turning off the heat in her pickup truck. Two hours later she awoke to an orange beam of light, with her truck that was now freezing inside. She had two hours of unaccounted for missing time, her watch had stopped, and her nose was bleeding. There were 2 independent witnesses of a UFO in the area that night. (Source: Christopher O'Brien, The Mysterious Valley, p. 36).

1996 - In Adelaide, South Australia at 1:25 a.m. multiple callers reported sighting a number of "soft white balls of light" coursing to the east and then changing direction to the west. The lights changed direction again, and sped off in a northwesterly direction. (Source: Glennys Mackay, Queensland UFO Network website).

1996 - At 10:30 p.m. multiple callers reported a number of intense bright orange fireballs traveling fast over Canberra, A.C.T., Australia. When last seen, the lights were headed to the northwest. At 11:15 p.m. many witnesses, including the entire local police force of Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia watched at least four intense bright-orange "fireball" type lights over the city, before the objects headed off in a westerly direction. At least 10 photographs were taken of the objects, and one of the police officers succeeded in getting the object on video film. (Source: Glennys Mackay, Queensland UFO Network website).

1998, San Fernando Cebu Island, The Philippines - At three o'clock in the morning a man noticed a small strange-looking object hovering over a dead tree in some woods. There was a sudden flash of light and large balloon-shaped object with three illuminated triangular windows became visible. Inside the window he could see the head of a being with bright, crystal blue eyes. He heard a loud thundering voice speaking at him in an unknown language. Some of it sounded like: "arc-ha-an rha-ehn-raxh ehn." (Source: Albert S. Rosales, a998 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, citing UFO Sightings in New Mexico and the World).

1998 - At 5:00 a.m. a soldier at the Moron de la Frontera Air Force Base in Sevilla, Spain was on guard duty near special hangars 1, 5, 6 and 9, accompanied by his German shepherd guard dog, when he heard a metallic scraping sound coming from nearby. He released his dog loose to go check, then loaded his weapon, and fired two shots into the air. Suddenly from out of some nearby woods a two-meter tall humanoid figure appeared. Because it was dark the soldier could not make out any features, except that the humanoid had glowing green eyes. He challenged the figure but it did not move, then he fired at it with his rifle, once, without any apparent effect. He then ordered the dog to attack, but when the dog approached it started howling in pain and slunk away. He fired at the humanoid again, but it just remained standing, staring at him. He took a few steps towards the figure which then raised one hand up, crouched down, and disappeared into the brush. The soldier conducted a search but failed to find anything. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1998 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case # 3457, citing Jose Manuel Garcia Bautista).

1999 - At 4:23 p.m. Maria de Jesus was outside washing some clothes in her yard in Coari, Amazonas State, Brazil when she felt something moving nearby. When she turned around, she was confronted by a short creature about 1.20 meters in height, with large black eyes. It was wearing metallic clothing and holding a cane-like instrument in his left hand. The humanoid being began gesticulating towards her, when she screamed in fear. This startled the humanoid, who then seemed to levitate and disappear behind a nearby stonewall. A large ball of fire appeared a few seconds later from behind the stone wall, and shot up into the sky at very high speed. The encounter lasted for about three minutes. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 1999 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, citing  Thiago Luiz Ticchetti, EBE-ET).

1999 - At 10:10 p.m. in Pemberton, British Columbia four witnesses watched orange lights in the northwest sky, moving slowly. The lights wandered in the sky for four minutes. There were 4-6 lights in a "X-shape." (Source: Geoff Dittman, 1999 Canadian UFO Survey, case 246, citing UFO-BC).

2000 - In Ellisville, Mississippi a witness reported seeing a long, triangle-shaped object with lots of lights moving in the sky at 8:45 p.m., and making no sound when it flew. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, November webpage.

2002 - Fourteen-year-old Amy saw a slow flying equilateral triangle in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was medium gray (not black), silent, and flying toward the east-southeast lower than the normal landing pattern. She saw it for three seconds, and it gave her "the chills" seeing it. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Twichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 61).

2003 - Two witnesses in Creston, British Columbia briefly saw some blue lights in the sky at 9:20 p.m., then felt they had had a missing time experience. (Source: Geoff Dittman, 2003 Canadian UFO Survey, case 616, citing HBCCUFO).

2004 - A triangular UFO with red and blue lights was sighted flying over Ottumwa, Iowa at 5:00 a.m. The lights appeared to be rotating in a clockwise pattern. The object was completely silent as it flew. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, November 2004 webpage).

2005 - A man was having a late dinner with his family in Wichita, Kansas at 10:30 p.m. when he saw three lights on the horizon. In a flash they grew into a large, nearly blinding light source. He went outside and walked in the direction of the lights, and could see a cigar-shaped object moving up and down in a vertical motion. He had two dogs, and one was barking uncontrollably, while the other--a normally more aggressive dog--was whimpering and hid under the back deck. As he stood watching the UFO , a man about five feet tall approached him. The man spoke to him in a foreign language which he was certain was German. He could not remember anything after that point. The next morning he woke up on his bed. His family had gone and his entire body felt sore, particularly below the waist. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

2005 - At sometime around 4 a.m. a 14-year-old witness in Leesport, Pennsylvania was asleep in his bed when he suddenly awoke and caught a brief glimpse of what looked to be an alien face. The figure was standing by a dresser next to his mirror, and was between 4-5 feet tall with large black eyes. As soon as he saw the alien's face he pulled his blanket over his face. Moments later, while hiding under the blanket, he heard shuffling noises on the carpet and also what sounded like plastic tubes being slapped against a hand. The last sound he heard was a loud clapping noise. After daylight had broken he finally had the courage to pull off his covers and go to the bathroom, but by now everything seemed to be back to normal. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2005, citing UFO Magazine (USA), December 2005).
