The object hovered with a ten-foot wide cylindrical section that connected with the ground.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1966-40 (A0607), citing USAF Project Blue Book Files; Jacques Vallee, Dimensions: A Casebook of Alien Contact, p. 67).

1973 - Ms. Brown, age 52, saw a silvery metallic sphere at 20 degrees elevation in the sky while driving between Snyder and Big Springs, Texas during a rainstorm at around four p.m. It was the apparent size of the full moon, and had a band around the middle with diamond shapes that did not appear to be windows. It was doing a slow yo-yo, up-and-down motion, and it made no sound that could be heard. (Source: John F. Schuessler, MUFON Field Investigator Case Files).

1976 - On this night in a shopyard in Vargem Grande, Minas Gerais province, Brazil 39-year-old Mr. Coelho de Silva was a five-meter in diameter yellow glowing dome with a blue violet band around its base, and a hole at its center.

1979 - At 10:45 a.m. a large, football-shaped object with a brilliant metallic sheen was seen by five witnesses near a lake two miles east of Dresser, Wisconsin. It closed to within 200 meters of their car, moved over the lake, and was seen again later over a gravel pit; it ascended at an 85 degree angle. Total duration was five minutes. (Sources: Allan Hendry, International UFO Reporter, December 1979, pp. 7, 12; APRO Bulletin, December 1979, p. 3; UNICAT, case # 87).

1981 - A 50 meter wide, bell-shaped domed disc was seen on the ground by three witnesses in a forest in Mansigne, Sarthe, France. It emitted two beams of light. Ground traces and a powder residue were found at the landing site. (Source: Larry Hatch,U computer database, case # 14268, citing Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 313).

1991 - At 11:30 p.m. a man in Margut, Ardennes, France reported sighting three luminous points traveling through the sky in a triangle, with the point towards the rear. It had two red points towards the front and a white point towards the rear, according to the direction of travel. Speed was slow and quiet. It was seen twice. (Source: GEIPAN, case #86).

1993 - At 11:33 p.m. in Depoe Bay, Lincoln County, Oregon a ball of red-orange light, pulsating, travelled north to south just 150-300 feet off the ground. It moved at 20-30 mph, and was the size of a car. The light emitted a small light, that fell leaf-like to the ground. (Source: Li F. Wong, MUFON field investigation case files, case 850304Sb).

1995 - On this night a police officer in Campo Rico, Puerto Rico shot at and hit a creature with a .357 pistol while the monster was attempting to grab a dog. The creature ran away. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 17031, citing FSR, volume 41, issue no. 1).

1997 - Following an encounter with a strange looking humanoid the evening before, the next morning the same two boys in Cordenons, Italy along with two other friends went into the woods where they last saw the creature. About 50 meters away, among some bushes, the boys saw a round hairless head that was whitish and extremely wrinkled in appearance. Terrified, the boys fled the area, but soon returned armed with a camera and a pair of binoculars. They were soon overcome with a strange malaise and headache. They saw the humanoid again, who they described as about 90 cm in height, dirty-white in color, and with very long arms. It had three-digit hands that ended in ball-shaped tips. Its head was oval shaped and devoid of any facial expressions. The head seemed pointed on top and had a very pointed chin. Its most prominent feature was its huge black, oval-shaped eyes. Its mouth was but a thin line and its nose was just two small round holes. Its skin appeared gelatinous and corrugated or wrinkled. They didn't see any sexual organs. The boys left quickly. The creature was seen briefly next day in the same woods, but it scurried away into the bushes when the witness approached. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1997, citing Moreno Tambellini, SHADO).

2002 - In Fallon, Nevada a witness reported sighting a dark, very large craft at 11:13 p.m. that he thought at first was a B-52. It was a huge flying triangle with no running lights, but it did have some 7 to 9 dimly lit nodes. It flew at 20 mph making no noise. It was astonishingly close and so large! Total event time was 8 seconds. The witness had a clear view of the side and bottom of the ship, but could not make out the leading edge or rear of the craft. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Twichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 91).

2003 - At 10:00 p.m. in Calaveras Big Trees, California a ball of light followed witnesses out of a pitch black forest, and then hovered in the bed of their pickup truck for 10 seconds. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, August 2003 webpage)

2004 - On this evening around 10:00 p.m. a couple again watched a set of brilliant strobing lights through binoculars from Linton, Oregon. They had previously seen the same lights from the same location on September 3rd, two nights previously. The lights were hovering in the sky across the Willamette River. They distinctly saw four colors of lights: red, white, green, and blue. They flashed and rotated around the edges. They would shift position, tilting from horizontal to vertical, then rotating slowly so that they could see the underside of a single multicolored object, and then flatten out. The witnesses also reported that they thought airliners taking off from Portland International Airport must have seen this object. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Twichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 135).

2009 - At 5:22 p.m. a married couple and their 7-year-old son were parked next to the Coronda River in Puerto Gaboto, Santa Fe State, Argentina when they noticed something strange in the sky over a nearby field. They saw something white flying through the air, and when they looked at it through the telephoto lens of their camera's zoom lens they were startled to see that what it was was a cow suspended beneath a hovering, metallic disc-shaped craft some 30 meters above it. It became clear that the cow was being "absorbed" or levitated up into the UFO. Suddenly and inexplicably, both the cow and the ufo vanished in plain sight, but they managed to photograph the bizarre series of events. According to them the cow was not moving, but appeared to be either asleep or paralyzed. Locals reported that cattle mutilations had been found in the region in the past. (Source: Albert S.
