1959 - An electrical power outage occurred In Mariannelund, Sweden at 6:55 p.m. Going outside during the power failure, Mr. Gideon Johansson and his son saw a brilliant white light hovering over a nearby building. The object descended, breaking through the top of a maple tree, until it was 18 inches above the street and only ten feet from Mr. Johansson. It was a domed, oval-shaped machine 12 feet long and 8 feet high, and light blue in color. In the front of the object was a large window surrounded by rivets. Inside, brilliantly illuminated by a white light, he could see two small, seated individuals. They had very high crowned heads, big eyes, small mouths, and pointed chins. Each had what looked like an earphone on one ear. They wore white uniforms with broad black belts crossed over their shoulders and chests. One of them loosened his belt to work on something below the window level. After two minutes the craft floated along the street for 25 meters then disappeared in a flash, with a gust of air. A glassy deposit was found on the power line a kilometer away. Mr. Johansson suffered ill effects to his health and the maple tree eventually died. (Source: David F.

That night others in the area reported also seeing low flying UFOs. (Sources: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case # 705; John A.

1974 - At 12:30 a.m. a witness named Sorba reported seeing several strange humanoids at the local "Parc de la Gaudiniere", in Nantes, Loire-Atlantique, France. He described the beings as robot-like, with bumpy looking skin, and without faces. They moved about heavily swinging their arms. Fifteen minutes later, at 12:45 a.m., a 46-year-old woman named Le Bihan and two other witnesses saw three humanoids in Riec-sur-Belon, Finistere, France.

There suits were metallic, their heads round, and they had no facial details eventhough they wore no headgear. Physiological effects and post traumatic stress were reported. (Sources: (1) Albert S.

The craft emitted indigo beams from lamps on the bottom, which formed concentric circles and shone straight down. The UFO dipped to avoid the trees, then finally shot off to the east.
