 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 October 12

1954, Mamora Forest, Morocco - A French engineer driving to Port Lyautey in the afternoon saw a dwarf about 1.2 meters in height enter an object which soon took off. The little man was wearing silver coveralls. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 226).

1954 - A farmer, Mr. Beuc, saw a small pilot enter an object in Orchamps, France. It glided over the road for 30 meters and then rose rapidly. (Sources: Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 167; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 226)

1954 - A railroad employee, Mr. Laugere, saw a torpedo-shaped, metallic craft on the ground near a gas/oil tank in Montlucon, France. An hairy humanoid was standing nearby, emitting sounds that were not understood. The witness went to get his friends, but the thing had disappeared in the meantime. (Sources: Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 167; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 226).

1954 - Jan Marty, age 42, a mechanic, was in his shop in Leguevin, France when he saw a luminous disc land. It was about 6.5 meters in diameter and 2.5 meters thick. He tried to approach it, but the craft rose vertically and silently at an amazing speed. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 226).

1954 - Ste.-Marie d'Herblay, France. Gilbert Lelay, age 13, saw a phosphorescent cigar-shaped UFO in a pasture and a man standing near it, wearing a gray suit, boots, and a gray hat. He held a flashing sphere and told Gilbert in French not to touch it. He went back inside the craft, which flew in loops and then vanished. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 226).

1954, Dompierre-les-Tilleuls, France - Mr. Vielle, a businessman, was on Route N471 between Frasnes and Pontarlier when he saw a circular flying craft that gave off a yellowish and a purple light. Losing altitude, the craft came very close to the ground, changed its course to southwest, and then rose again in the sky. (Sources: Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 167; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 227).

1954 - Roger Ramond, a night watchman, saw a great light and noticed an oval object land 300 meters away in Vielmur, France. It looked like a fiery orange ball, illuminated the vineyard for nearly 3 hours, then assumed a vertical position, rose slowly, hovered 30 meters above the ground for a few seconds, and took off at fantastic speed. (Sources: Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 168; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 227).

1963 - At 3:30 a.m. Sr. E. Douglas, while driving a truck through a violent rainstorm, had to stop when he encountered a large, blinding object, 35 meters high, from which three giants, three meters tall emerged. They wore luminous clothes and strange helmets. Douglas took out a gun and fired at them, as a red beam burned him. He ran away and found shelter in Monte Maiz, Argentina. He suffered burns similar to strong ultraviolet exposure. Very large footprints were found at the site. "A truck driver was travelling along a lonely road at night during a violent storm when he was suddenly blinded by a vivid white light which enveloped his vehicle. Simultaneously, he felt a burn on his face. He then braked but the vehicle skidded, left the road and became bogged down in the mud. The driver found himself in the presence of three strange beings with the gait of robots. Nearby he saw an oval-shaped object with portholes emitting a harsh light. Picking up his revolver, he fired four shots at the beings, who fled to the object. It then took off and flew around the truck several times, each time causing the driver to feel burns all over his body. Examination by a doctor revealed that the burns were 'curious lesions' of undetermined cause." (Sources: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 583; Gregory Falla, BUFORA Vehicle Interference Catalog).

1979 - On this night two glowing humanoids about 1.20 meters in height, that appeared not to have eyes or arms, were seen moving around in a field in Goiania, Brazil. They moved about with jerky, mechanical movements. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1979, citing Antonio Faleiro, Brazil).
