Encounters with Aliens on this Day
1952 - Inyo, Kern County, California. Two couples, looking through a 5x telescope at 10 p.m., observed a large, round object, which went through the color spectrum every 2 seconds. It flew straight and level for 15 minutes. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).
1954 - Foussignargues, France. At "Revety," people on a bus saw a reddish light with a halo come down from the sky at 2:30 a.m.. Later Mr. and Mrs. Louis Roche noticed a softly glowing red object on the ground a short distance from their house, but were afraid to approach it. It remained there for several hours. It was described as "a sort of glowing tomato, with antennae on top." (Sources: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, p. 212; Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, pp. 89-90).
1954 -- Children in Figeac, France saw "a box" and "an unknown man" standing nearby it at 8:40 a.m. The object took off. (Sources: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, p. 212; Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, p. 90).
1954 - Perpignan, France. A college student saw a circular object on the ground this afternoon. Two beings came out of it, then reentered the craft and left. The witness was reportedly in a state of shock. (Sources: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 212).
1954 - A luminous disc-shaped object was observed in Lanta, Haute-Garonne, France at 8 o'clock in the evening. (Source: Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, p. 92).
1954 - Four children in Premanon, France came outside of their home at 8:30 p.m. because their dog was barking furiously. They saw a large object on the ground and a small being they thought was a "ghost" in their yard. Raymond Romand (or Rolland), age 12, threw stones at the intruder. (Sources: Aime Michel, A propos des Soucoupes Volantes, p. 116; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 212; Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, pp. 91-92).
1954 - Two flying cigars were seen in Sauzet, Drome, France at 9:40 p.m. (Source: Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, p. 92).
1965 - A physicist employed by the U.S. Air Force sighted a sharply defined, brillian white ball of light in Andover, Massachusetts at 7:28 p.m. He first thought it could be a meteor, but it did not burn out when he stopped to watch it. It moved faster than any known conventional aircraft. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 334).
1971 - On this night Len Delman, a lorry driver, saw what he took to be a man in a white suit in the road directly ahead of his truck while driving near Banbury, Oxfordshire, England. He slammed on the brakes and came to a halt, believing he may have hit the man. He jumped out and went behind his truck, but found no one. Coming back around to the front of his vehicle he saw in the headlights a "spaceman," 7-8 feet tall, with big, staring eyes 8-12 inches apart and extending around the sides of its head. It had a pack on its back from which two tubes led to the head. When Delman honked his horn repeatedly the "thing" jumped three feet in the air and ran across the road, then leapt over a hedge. Two other lorry drivers came upon the scene, and together they watched a disc-shaped object take off from the field where the figure had disappeared. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1971-26, citing J. D. Llewellyn, FSR, Vol. 18 # 1).
1972 - At 11:13 p.m. Enrique Moreno was delivering documents to the Ika-Renault factory in Santa Isabel, Cordoba, Argentina when the fluorescent lights in the engineering room went on and off three times. There was an accompanying noise like that of a turbine lasting for several seconds. Driving his motor runabout outside the plant he briefly glimpsed "a sort of rainbow very near the ground," but thought no further of it until he suddenly encountered a tall figure, glowing a bluish green, moving among a pile of chassis beside his route. As he approached within 30 meters the figure swung around, in a stiff mechanical way, to face him, and at the same time his engine faltered then quit when he came opposite the being.
This humanoid figure, strongly built and about 7.5 feet tall, had eyes like yellow light bulbs, large pointed ears, a square chin, and a slit-like mouth. The face appeared pale green, but this may have been do to a reflection from the clothing, a one-piece luminescent bluish-green tight fitting coverall with a broad silvery belt. Moreno felt an intolerable humming in his ears, a sensation of heat, and itching over his entire body. There was also the smell of burning oil. His arms and legs were paralyzed. After 30 seconds of this confrontation, his motorcycle shot off to the left seemingly under its own volition at high speed, and the witness was returned to the Security Office without his conscious control. He arrived there at 11:30 p.m., but his wristwatch had stopped at 11:13 p.m., leaving 15 minutes unaccounted for. Moreno was in a highly agitated state, and subsequently suffered nausea and pains in the neck, as well as a burning sensation in his eyes. At the encounter site two rectangular "footprints" 8 inches x 16 inches were found and the soil there was warm to the touch. (Sources: Oscar A. Galindez, FSR, November 1975, p. 21; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1972-28, citing Dr. Oscar A. Galindez).
1972 - At 11:30 p.m. independent witnesses, one a woman with the surname of Quiroga, saw near the local Ika-Renault auto plant in Santa Isabel, Cordoba, Argentina a luminous object which picked up a tall humanoid entity. It did so by means of a solid beam of blue light. It somehow levitated or took the being up through the tube of light and into the UFO. Others saw a luminous object rising up into the sky from the vicinity of the auto plant. (Source: Oscar A Galindez, FSR, November 1975, p. 21).
1973 - At around 5:30 p.m., while picking mushrooms in the woods on Mont Real in Bedarrides, Vancluse, France, the witness observed a four-foot-tall dwarf standing at the edge of the clearing some 100 feet away. As he grabbed something from the ground a second identical-looking being joined the first one from the woods beyond. They looked human and wore beige coveralls that covered up their wrists and neck; their feet were obscured by high grass. Their arms were slender and their hands normal. Each wore a black beret on his head. Thinking they were children, the witness called out to them, whereupon they laughed aloud, then turned and fled into the brush behind them. A few seconds later, the witness saw a dull bluish-gray oval-shaped object, about five meters wide, rise up beyond the trees and ascend to a height of 20 feet, making a slight whistling sound. There it paused briefly, then departed toward the northeast rapidly and in total silence. At the landing site, a bush and some grass had been flattened, suggesting that the UFO had been hovering a foot or so above the ground. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher: HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-97, citing Jean Bastide, MUFON UFO Journal , no. 118).
1973 - Two girls were standing outside in Beaver County, Pennsylvania at 9:30 p.m. when an eight-foot tall being covered with white hair and with red glowing eyes ran into the woods nearby. The humanoid was carrying a large luminous sphere in its hands. The girls ran off hysterically into their house. The father of one of the girls then went into the woods in search of the creature and stayed there for over an hour. When he returned he refused to talk about what he had seen in the woods. During the period of time he was in the woods several people watched a silvery object hovering over the woods. At one point it emitted a beam of light into the woods. (Source: Stan Gordon, MUFON UFO Symposium 1974).
1978 - At 8:00 p.m. two witnesses
watched an object with pulsating red lights fly low over some pine trees in Prcirovnik, Poland.
The object was oval shaped and appeared to descend into the woods. In
the woods, a mushroom picker encountered three short beings dressed in
black one-piece suits with flippers on their feet. On their chests they
wore a yellow emblem with a red dot, and on their heads they wore
tight-fitting black helmets. The beings were greenish in color and
had pointed ears, red slanted eyes, and pronounced cheekbones. They
gave off a strong chlorine-like odor. (Source: Albert S. Rosales,
Humanoid Contact Database 1978, case # 563, citing Felix Zigel, UFO Landings in the USSR and Other Countries).
1989 - A woman was called by her granddaughter to look at something unusual outside at 4:20 p.m. She stepped out of her house near Tillamook, Oregon and was confronted by an object resembling an inverted toy top, hovering just above the ground. It was 20 to 30 feet in diameter and had a flat bottom and a bright yellow-white light shining at both ends. The woman approached to within 30 feet of the craft when a door opened revealing a blond human-like entity of average height with fair skin and blue eyes. He was wearing a silvery coverall uniform. The woman then noticed at a window next to the door a large hairy, Sasquatch type creature apparently seated and only visible from the chest up. The woman stared at the object and beings for a few minutes, and then the UFO suddenly vanished from plain sight. (Sources: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1989, case #116; MUFON UFO Journal, April 1990).
1989 - Several children playing at a local park in Voronezh, Russia first observed a pinkish glow approaching in the sky at 6:30 p.m. As it came overhead they could see that it was a deep red, ball-shaped object. The object flew around in circles for a few minutes and then left. When it returned it hovered briefly, and then descended very close to the ground. A hatch opened and a heavy set figure emerged. The being moved very slowly and looked around, he had a very small head resembling that of a doorknob, set in between its shoulders. It had three luminous eyes, the middle one moving around like"radar." On its chest there was a shield-like object. The being then closed the hatch and the object landed gently on four legs. The hatch opened again and three huge humanoids with small knob-like heads stepped out. These wore silvery coveralls and bronze colored boots. A strange robot-like creature accompanied the giants. All four of them walked around the object several times. A beam of light came out of the chest of one of the beings and struck the ground, creating several luminous triangles that later faded away. At one point the craft and beings became briefly invisible but then reappeared. One of the boys screamed in fear. Then one of the beings looked at the boy and pointed a tube at him. A luminous beam came from the tube and hit the boy, which made him disappear. The boy later reappeared after the beings and the objects had gone. Subsequent information revealed that on of the craft's hull and on the landing prop of another craft was the letter or symbol "Zhe," reported to have been similar to the "UMMO" insignia reported in Western Europe in the 1970s.
