Encounters with Aliens on this Day
During World War Two, on a bombing mission over Bremen, Germany crew members of the United States 8th Air Force reported that green "rings of flame 2 or 3 feet in diameter" corkscrewed through their formation, as if floating. (Source: Jan Aldrich, Project 1947 website on aerial encounters).
On this day in 1950, two airmen flying over the Sussex, England coastline saw a silver-blue disc flying south. The object "tumbled over" and disappeared into some clouds at a terrific speed. (Source: Awareness, April 1979, p. 8).
On this night in 1954, an object with four reddish-yellow lights forming a rectangle circled over Millville, New Jersey. Shortly afterward a searchlight caught the object, revealing it to be a huge disc. As soon as the light touched it, the UFO sped up and swiftly disappeared. (Source: Donald Keyhoe, Flying Saucer Conspiracy, p. 232).
In 1962 at 1:00 a.m., just southeast of Abra Grande, Argentina in the province of Santiago del Estero, two men driving a tractor-trailer truck loaded with coal watched a lit-up "railway car" near some railroad tracks that run parallel to the road project a brilliant beam of light on the road. When they got closer they made out that it was some type of unknown craft emitting phosphorescent flashes. Making no sound it rose up into the air to a height of some 50 meters, then landed again beside the road. Throughout their entire journey to Clodomira the object kept jumping ahead of them. When the first lights of the city came into sight the object broke off pursuit and climbed into the sky at a terrific speed.

1964 - The witness, an eight-year-old child at the time, reported that he and his family experienced the total electrical failure of their family car in Adams, Wisconsin on this night when they had a close encounter experience with a single bright, stationary light. At the same time, "trees looked like they were transparent." (Sources: J. Allen Hynek, UNICAT database, case # 38, citing Frontiers of Science, January 1982, p. 13; Ray Rath, The W-Files: True Reports of Wisconsin's Unexplained Phenomena, p. 61).
In 1965 in a wide area from St. Paul, Minnesota to the Wisconsin border, blue lights in the sky, power failures, and electro-magnetic effects on cars were reported. At 8:00 p.m. many residents of Totem Town, St. Paul, Minnesota saw strange objects flying overhead, emitting blue and orange flashes. Some reported that their house lights went out when the objects passed overhead. One person in a car said that his headlights and radio had failed as the objects passed nearby. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, December 1965, p.1; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, case 156, citing Flying Saucer Review, Vol. 12, No. 6).
1966 - In St. Albans, West Virginia a woman saw "Mothman" standing on her front lawn. She described the creature as about six feet tall with a "funny little face" with "big red eyes that popped out." She screamed and ran inside her house. In Lowell, Ohio during the afternoon Marvin Shock and three others reported seeing four "giant birds" that stood 4-5 feet tall and had 10-foot wing spreads and bills 5-6 inches long. They kept them in sight for two hours. (Source: John A. Keel, FSR, July 1968, p. 13, David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, cases 1966-62 and 64, citing John Keel).
1968 - Two Air Traffic Controllers at Bismark, North Dakota airport, Watts and Wilhelm, watched two bright lights in the sky engage in sudden maneuvers. The first one was northbound at 45 degrees elevation above the horizon, the second one was southbound at 30 degrees elevation. The Great Falls radar confirmed erratic targets. The second object made a 180 degree turn to join the first object, then hovered in the sky, finally departing toward the northeast. The entire incident lasted more than five minutes. Their were other independent witnesses, including the crew of a Capital Aviation flight. (Sources: J. Allen Hynek, The UFO Experience, p. 38; APRO Bulletin, November-December 1968, p. 5; Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 13, 119, & 243).
1969 - An 18-year-old man named Oram sighted a cigar-shaped UFO hovering over the gasworks in East Ham, Essex, England in clear skies at 8:35 a.m. He experienced visions and received a telepathic message to "keep quiet" about his close encounter experience. (Source: Charles Bowen, FSR, March 1970, p. 18).
1972 - On this evening a yellow delta-shaped UFO flew over L'Ancresse in the English Channel Isles for 10 minutes heading south. A faint hum was heard when the object was overhead, which then zig-zagged through the sky. (Source: FSR, January 1973, p. 30, citing a newspaper source).
1973 - Two raccoon hunters spotted a large reddish orange sphere across the field north of Lincoln, Missouri at 9:30 p.m. Their dogs ran away, past some cattle, and jumped into their truck and refused to get out. When the hunters drove away the UFO silently paced their truck for half a mile on Highway 65, near some power lines. (Source: Ted R. Phillips, Skylook, February 1974, p. 13).
1974 - Mike Grivoski, a teenager in Minneapolis, Minnesota saw a large orange luminous ball crossing the sky in the evening and ran for his Polaroid camera. He snapped one photograph. His father also saw the object, which was as bright as the full moon. The photo, however, showed five small lights, each with a dashed trail leading across the picture. Later that night Mike was awakened by the noise of someone in his bedroom. He saw a "creature" with heavy brow ridges, jowls, and large pointed ears removing the photograph from a drawer. When he sat up, the creature dropped the picture and ran out the door. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1974-77, citing Mike Douglas & Kevin Randle).
1974 - A loud 110 decibel roar was followed by the sighting of a two-meter wide sphere or ovoid near the ground in a garden in La Plata, Buenos Aires province, Argentina at around 11:30 p.m. On the ground was found a 3.4 meter diameter ring plus numerous equilateral triangular marks that were one meter on a side. The grass and a tree top was burnt, and a silvery powder residue made up of Calcium Oxide was found. (Sources: Inforespace, June 1976; Roberto E. Banchs, UNICAT database, case # 587).
1980 - A witness driving in a car near Bentwaters RAF Air Base in Suffolk, England at around 2:00 p.m. saw a black ball in the sky being chased by two jet aircraft. It stopped in the sky, then shot straight up. (Source: Jenny Randles, From Out of the Blue, p. 133).
1984 - A UFO seen at 6:15 p.m. by Mr. & Mrs. Hoel in Gloucester, Massachusetts seemed to respond to their comments while flying over Magnolia Bay. The dark triangular object, 150 feet wide, with a canopy underneath, flew at 125 feet altitude and passed over Magnolia Bay and surrounding trees. It made a low droning sound, and seemed to be made of a non-reflective material. (Sources: Doris Graziano, APRO Bulletin, June 1985, p. 8, citing the Gloucester Times; John Melesciuc, MUFON UFO Journal, February 1986, p. 11).
1993 - At 7:45 p.m. a witness driving in Riverside, California reported seeing an object whirl around in the sky, then land about 200 feet from his car. A door opened on the top of the craft and several persons came out. They appeared to be normal looking humans. He heard them talking, and when they apparently noticed him they entered the craft and left. The witness believes that what he saw was a crashed alien spacecraft recovered by the U.S. military and now being manned by the government. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1993, case # 2839, citing UFO Sightings in New Mexico and the World).
1999 - A glowing silver cigar-shaped object traveled very quickly up and down the beach in the Bethwells Beach area in Auckland, New Zealand at 11:30 p.m. It was seen by several witnesses and seemed to dematerialize and reappear a number of times; It finally hovered low over the water 200 meters away from shore. A dog started barking at the object, and the dog's owner, who felt a static charge emanating from the object, then became frightened. (Sources: Robert Frola, Australasian Ufologist, January 2001, p. 47; UFO Magazine (USA), March 2000, p. 17).
2003 - A soft humming noise was first heard in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, England at 9:00 p.m. Then the witness saw some hovering spherical objects that were then chased away by military aircrafts. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, November 2003 webpage).
