Humanoid Reports 1967. At the height of the “Age of Aquarius” 1967 was indeed a memorable year, a sampling of things to come. An unprecedented “wave” enveloped the US and Canada, mysterious characters were walking among us. So-called “Men in Black” reports were frequent and bizarre. A reported abduction of one “Betty Andreasson” in late January opened the gates to a much deeper mystery. The files for 1967 are thick and strange. High strangeness reports were distributed worldwide not too many places were spared. Following is a list of reported humanoid encounters for 1967.
“We come from a dying planet…”
Location. New South Wales, Australia, exact location not given
The witness recalled, partly under hypnosis, being abducted by several short beings with large eyes, a slit like mouth, small nose, no ears, and huge heads. They wore elastic style body suits and seemed to glide above the floor. The beings communicated telepathically, informing the witness that they had come from a dying planet and that they were having difficulty in their reproduction. She was later examined and something resembling a long thin needle was inserted into her left ear. Onboard the object she met a being that apparently attempted to camouflage himself as tall and handsome & man like. She also saw a group of old men who resembled a group of Greek philosophers.

Harmington Garay and a friend were exploring an area filled with old conquistador tombs and other relics and towards the afternoon had retire to their campsite by a river. While fishing, Hamilton noticed a man standing on the old rustic bridge apparently watching them. Immediately he was surprised to see anybody else in the area but soon was filled with a strange state of aloofness and sleepiness. Suddenly the stranger is standing next to Harmington, also standing in the river. The stranger asks in perfect English, “Is the fishing good?” Hamilton does not remember what his answer was. His next memory is walking on a trail, carrying his backpacks along with his friend and the stranger, and feeling very hot. He described the man as a typical Caucasian, tall, blond haired, of athletic build, whose face did not possess the typical local traits. A curious detail was that the stranger seemed to possess “extra” skin surrounding his face. He wore local striped pants, boots, a typical Indian hat, but his shirt appeared out of place, it seemed foreign and brand new. Feeling somewhat perplexed Harmington continued the walk with the stranger and his friend, without remembering what they talked about. At a given moment they arrived at a fork on the road at which time the stranger bade farewell telling the men that he will go take the route on the left and they should take the route on the right. Suddenly both men seemed to snap out of a stupor, feeling exhausted as it appeared they had walked a very long distance, the stranger is nowhere in sight. Both asked each other who the stranger was. Feeling extremely curious both men then take the route on the left, the same one the stranger had taken in the hope of meeting up with him again. As they followed the road both men felt a very strong heat, and the weight of their backpacks seems to increase. The more they walked the more tired and breathless they feel, they feel as if something is preventing them from moving any further. Suddenly both men seem to loose consciousness. Harmington regains his senses back at the camp at the edge of the river, and sees his terrified friend on top of a tree. The camp appeared to have been searched or ransacked, while attempting to calm his friend he notices that there is a shot had been fired in his rifle, he was sure he had not touched the weapon. Moments later in total silence both men collect their belongings and return to the city of Concepcion. Both men never talked about their experience and eventually loose track of each other.

During his lunch break from school the witness visited a small half-dried lake, where him and several others saw a small 3 ft in diameter very shiny silvery disc-shaped which had apparently landed on the sand at the lake. Several school kids age 10-12 had first seen the shiny disk. When the witness reached the spot where the disk was on his bicycle, he stared at the small object and felt like picking it up, thinking that it was a huge diamond that had fallen from the sky. He asked the kids what had they seen and they told him that they had actually seen several very small figures come out of the craft and walk around. He did not see them. Concerned that it had it had something to do with “black magic” he rode back home to get his father, but couldn’t find him. He then returned to the location but the shiny silvery disk was now at the other side of the dried up lake. He rushed to the other side but by the time he got there the small disc had vanished.

The witness was driving home when she felt compelled to drive into a state park area. She drove into the area, stopped the car, and got out. A bright light was hovering high in the sky above the trees. The witness stared at the object as it descended and landed behind the trees. He then walked towards the object and entered it. Two tall black beings without any discernible features waited for the witness and assured her that everything was going to be all right. She was eventually allowed to leave.

Tamara Smirnov and a friend were leaving the local cinema when they spotted a red light descending over the area. The light increased in size and as it approached their position they could see that it was a capsule shaped object that as it descended meters from them appeared to create a strong air displacement. The object appeared to have a transparent glass like compartment on the front and inside two helmeted figures sat, apparently operating some controls. One of the figures was a man the other a woman and both were human like and very handsome. After flying above the cinema and shining a beam of light towards the ground the object disappeared towards the east.

Mandy Klark was out late watering his garden when he suddenly heard a whistling sound and looking up saw a large disc shaped craft descending overhead. Afraid he ran to the house but then heard a voice coming out of the object hat instructed him to be calm and not to be afraid. He was told to approach the object. Now completely unafraid he approached the now landed craft and saw an opened door and went inside. As soon as he entered the door closed behind him and he found himself in a small room. Another door opened and he entered a larger room where a human like figure wearing a tight fitting white coverall awaited him. He was then given a tour of the craft and onboard met 10 men and eight women, all very human like. Only the first man he met spoke to him, the others were busy at controls and just stared and smiled. He was then invited into a large circular room by the “captain” and there saw a great lens and through it saw a large hovering cigar shaped craft apparently in space. He was then shown numerous complicated machines and was taken into a blue room where there appeared to be some form of static energy floating in the area. There he spoke to the “captain” for two hours. Later the craft landed on top of a mountain and there he was shown the outside of the craft. Nearby was a cave entrance and he was told that it was one of the their earth bases. Soon Klark was brought back to the field outside his home and was told that they would meet him someday again.

Time: early morning
Zinaida Volovoj (a young pregnant mother) was awakened by the sounds of engines revving early one morning and looked out the window of her small wooden house to see a bright yellow sphere hovering above the window of a house across from her. Suddenly the yellow sphere rushed towards her. She ran to her bed and covered her head and heard the sphere fly over the house. A week later she was again awoken by the sounds of motors, she looked out to see the yellow sphere hovering above the same location. She stepped outside to hear a strong voice say, “Look she has come out, she has escaped, we should leave today we have finished.” Again the sphere rushed towards her and she ran into the house. The sphere then hovered above the roof and the witness ran outside again in time to see the sphere rise and vanished in plain sight. A couple of days later Zinaida was awoken by loud booming voices coming from outside her home. She approached the window and again the yellow sphere hovered above the house. This time the sphere is hovering closer to the ground and behind a window like opening she could see two persons. Zinaida steps outside her home. Minutes later three human like figures, 2 men and a woman come down from the sphere. These are described as tall, very handsome, and wearing dark tight-fitting coveralls, the aliens noticed the witness and the woman began speaking to one of the men apparently admonishing him for not “taken control of the witness and lulling her so she could not see us”. The witness stood paralyzed staring at the aliens, unable to move. At this point one of the tall men, seemingly the older one approaches her. He speaks to the witness telling her that they have searched for humans for a long time but that we were not necessary for their survival since we lagged behind them in development. They simply study the humans and their “primitive” ways. He asks the witness about the source of two recent explosions in the area (mining operations) and at this point the woman intervenes and tells the man that the witness is far to young and does not know. She then turns to the witness and asks her if she knows, the witness is to stunned to speak. The group then confers amongst each other debating what to do with the witness. Incredibly one of the men suggested that they burn down her wooden house (!). But the woman thankfully rejected this suggestion. And mentioned that they had to go visit other locations and were short of time. At this point the younger of the men spoke and told the others that he had “influenced” the witness brain so she would be ill, using a hand movement the older man catapulted the witness back into her home and onto her bed. Her head was covered with a pillow and a blanket and she had difficulty breathing. She could hear the sphere directly above the house apparently spinning. She heard the woman say, “Lets search the cellar” and felt strong beams of energy directed towards her head and stomach apparently from the hovering sphere. By now the aliens had realized that the witness was pregnant and one of the men said, “let us make her give birth already” She felt increasing pressure on her stomach. But at this point the woman spoke, “Leave her alone she has suffered enough, we have to leave.” The witness indeed gave birth prematurely soon after the incident and the baby died as a result of a brain hemorrhage. Before leaving the strangers spoke among themselves again, saying that it looked like the witness was feigning her death, which they found amusing. At this point all three aliens vanished and the sphere also disappeared. Soon after this incident the woman and her husband moved from the location to the Poltava region. She rarely spoke of the matter since very few people believed her.

An old age pensioner saw a UFO come down to hover 4-6 ft above the grass; 2 helmeted figures descended from it & walked stiffly into the woods, 100 ft away. They were fairly tall and wore dark gray close fitting clothing “with a peculiar sheen”, with black “plastic” helmets. When the witness approached to within 65 ft of them, one raised a gloved hand, and both vanished. A cloud of thick yellow smoke or vapor surrounded the UFO; he saw a light fly up out of this smoke.

Lola Dills was driving when she saw ” a black object with long spindly legs or stems at the bottom and sides.” The “side stems” were weaving and gesturing and appeared to end in pincers. The creature moved by placing the lower stems one in front of the other. The head consisted of a “round part” about 8″ in diameter that protruded from the top. The sides had a “shaggy look” and the front was white with two eyes; a bump with two small holes lower on the head may have been a nose. The mouth was a slit below the “bump,” and from it issued a “shrill sound,” heard just as she was passing. Then she saw “another and another with slight variations.” (Insectoid?)

Mr. H Tyrell, 64, was taking his usual way to work and had turned his car right onto the main road, just past Burton Hill House School for Physically Handicapped Children. His headlights were not full on and he suddenly saw the figure of a man appear in the middle of the road; he seemed to be dressed in gray coveralls and a bright buckle shone near his waist. Fearing he might hit the man, though he was not driving fast, he tried to pull up, but said it seemed he could not stop the car. Suddenly the man in gray turned and his face could be seen. He seemed a sharp-featured man of about 40,with a very white face. He turned sideways towards the verge, raised his arm, and just vanished in plain sight.

Following a sort of presentiment a Filipino woman was walking in the wooded area when suddenly she was paralyzed, unable to even move her eyes, as a strange object descended. It resembled two saucers edge-to-edge, with a domed top and three sphere “landing gear.” Three thin but strong men, 1.5 – 1.65 m tall descended via a ladder. They wore dark brown one-piece suits and transparent helmets, through which humanoid faces could be seen. One held a small box, which flashed a red beam at the witness when the figure pressed a button on it, which enable the witness to hear them talking in English. They asked if she would like to visit their planet, then flashed another light and gave a warning about the wickedness of humanity. They warned her she might die of cancer as she was of no further use to them, then re-entered the craft “with a smile of either mockery of pity.”

At 1730 there was a knock at the Edward Christiansen residence (involved in a previous UFO encounter), 17-year old Connie Christiansen when to the door, stunned she reported back, “It’s the strangest looking man I’ve ever seen.” Mrs Christiansen went to the door, unbolted, and unlatched it. It was growing dark and was bitter cold outside. There was no car in view and this seemed peculiar because the Christiansen home was removed from other houses in a rather isolated spot. A tall man stood at the door, he asked if Edward Christiansen lived there. And then said he was from “the Missing Heirs Bureau” and asked to be led in. The stranger was then invited him. The visitor must have been at least 6’6″ tall, enormously broad. He wore a Russian fur hat with a black visor on it and a very long black coat that seemed to be made out of thin material, too thin for the cold weather. He told the family “this will only take forty minutes.” As he removed his hat he revealed an unusual head, large and round while his face seemed angular, pointed. He had black hair, which was closely cropped, to his head. There was a perfectly round spot on the back of his head as if that area had recently been shaved. His nose and mouth seemed relatively normal, but his eyes were large, protruding, like “thyroid eyes,” and set wide apart. One eye appeared to have a cast, like a glass eye, and did not move in unison with is companion. During the course of the conversation Mr. Christiansen noticed a badge on the stranger’s shirt pocket, which he quickly covered with his hand and removed, placing it in his coat pocket. It resembled a gold or brass badge and it seemed to have a big K on it with a small x alongside and letters and numbers around the edge, according to Connie Christiansen. Underneath his thin outer coat he was wearing a short-sleeved shirt made of a Dacron like material. His trousers were of a dark material gray or black, and were a little too short. He wore dark shoes with unusually thick rubber soles. A strange feature on his leg fascinated Mrs Christiansen & Connie. When he sat down they could see a long thick green wire attached to the inside of his leg. It came up out or his socks and disappeared under his trousers. At one point it seemed to be indented into his leg and was covered with a large brown spot. The Christiansen’s noted that the visitor had an unnatural pallor. His speech was also strange, with a high “tinny” voice that seemed especially peculiar coming from such a large man. He also spoke in a strange, hard to understand, singsong like manner. At one point as his face gradually grew redder he asked for a glass of water and swallowed a large yellow capsule which he gulped down. He then returned to normal. After about 40 minutes he donned his hat and coat and told Mr. Christiansen that he would be in touch. When he reached the road, he made a gesture and a black 1963 Cadillac drove through the trees and pulled up. He climbed into the car and it drove away with its headlights off.

Having just seen a “shell” shaped object taking off from his farm, the witness proceeded to chase in his car a ball of light, which stayed 150 yards ahead of him. Then his engine died and his lights went out, and he noticed a “saucer shaped” object descending; it was slightly bigger than a Peugeot car, 9-12 ft above the ground and about 60 ft away. On top of this object were two transparent cupolas, in each of which he could see a helmeted figure, human like and dressed in green and white coveralls. He felt a wave of heat and a transient sensation of paralysis. With a whistling sound, the UFO rose to a 50 yard altitude, dropped back again to near ground level, then, becoming brilliantly yellow-white luminous, took off at tremendous speed. As it did so, his lights came back on and he was able to start the car normally. Several days later the witness experienced trouble in sleeping, followed by some weeks of excessive sleepiness. The area had been the site of repeated UFO incidents for a year.

9-year old Freddie Amos woke up at 0130A to see a round object hovering motionless low over an adjoining field. It was 25 feet in diameter, had a dome on top, short wing-like protrusions, and 3 wheels on its underside. There were red lights on the ends of the “wings,” and a blue light on top of the dome, and a man stood looking out, another man being visible, sitting at a desk, behind him. He was wearing a “crinkly” green uniform that covered him all over; his face was in shadow, its features not seen. This “terrible” man frightened the boy, though he could not say why. He got back into bed and watched the object, which circled the house and hovered again for 5 minutes at its original position before flying off. In the morning some of the cows were found to have broken through the fence around their pasture, so violently that one broke her leg. A pond in the pasture near the site continued to remain unfrozen although the temperatures were well below freezing. This encounter occurred during a minor concentration of sightings at nearby locales.

He got out to check under the hood and saw a brightly luminous object, 75 feet long by 30 feet wide, approach, and land on 3 legs on the highway. It made a loud whirring noise. Something like an elevator descended from the bottom, and a man walked out dressed in a silver-blue, tight fitting coverall suit with a “fish-bowl” helmet over his head. He was about average height and human appearing. The occupant seemed to examine something on the object, and then got back into the UFO, which took off. Duration was 3-4 minutes.

On January 20 at 2330 Mrs. Walter J Kushner and her two daughters, Susan (17) and Tanya (14) and a close friend of the girls, Marianne Williamson (16), witnessed a brilliant aero form with a distinct disk shape drop below the cloud cover and execute a sharp turn before cruising parallel to a mountain ridge while the group was returning to their residence. All members of the party were awed by the lack of the sound and high speed of the object. On January 21 1967 @ 0200A, Susan, Tanya and Marianne were enjoying a typical teenage pajama party and were doing anything but sleeping when all three girls simultaneously spotted a peculiar light shimmering through the closed curtains of Susan’s bedroom. Without warning the drapes parted of their own volition and a midget triangular object hovering a few feet from the house began beaming pinkish light of a painfully brilliant intensity into the bedroom. When the triangle moved to the second window, the curtains repeated their opening act and the intensity of light emanating from the object increased several fold. At this point the girls became quite frightened and decided to get the hell out of there. Suddenly, all three girls became paralyzed and weak, unable to cry out or do more than whimper helplessly. Not able to move, their terror at this point became so strong that prayer became a viable option. After a few more torturous moments that seemed like an eternity, the light effect dissipated and their freedom of movement was restored, although a weird dizzy sensation continued to haunt the girls for the better part of an hour. On the 28th things were back to normal when shortly after the dinner hour, two men arrived at the Kushner household. They identified themselves as military investigators and flashed what appeared to be USAF identification. Mrs. Kushner described the ID card as having black printing on a durable white stock. Both men wore tan trench coats, which they kept buttoned from knee to collar. The taller of the two, who, according to the family’s testimony, did all the talking, was described, as having blond hair, green eyes, was thin and deeply tanned. The other gentleman was heavyset with dark hair, piercing blue eyes and was also deeply tanned. The men were very polite but very insistent about one thing: they wanted every shred of information about the girl’s experience. Neither parent could explain why they allowed their children to be so intensely grilled by these “government agents.” The men moved about the house with apparently total knowledge of the whereabouts of rooms, furniture, objects, etc. Their clothing looked as if it had been purchased 10 minutes before and the bottom of their shoes seemed un-walked on. When the mystery men left, they backed their vehicle out onto the roadway turned off their headlights and powered away down the road. At one point one of the men was seen writing strange symbols in vertical columns, starting from the left, going down one column, up the next, down the third. This on a small booklet.

Knowledge tried by fire…
Location. South Ashburnham Worcester Massachusetts
Date: January 25 1967
Shortly after sunset, Betty Andreasson, her parents and her 7 children were frightened by a pulsating red-orange light outside their backyard. This was accompanied by a “silent vacuum” and failure of lights in the house. Four entities appeared before Betty in the kitchen, after passing through a closed door. The beings were nearly identical, with large, baldheads, gray skin, large wrap-around eyes with hazy, light gray interiors (later dark pupils were observed), “scar like” mouths, and holes for noses and ears. They wore sparkly, dark blue uniforms with a lighter blue “Sam Browne” strap. They had bulky hands, possibly gloved, and wore boots. Their leader, Quazgaa, was slightly taller and his suit was darker that the others. The reported height of the entities was 3 1/2 and 5 ft, at different times during the encounter. Quazgaa began possibly telepathic communication with Betty in the kitchen; he asked her for some food (and offered some left over meat; they declined, asking that it be cooked) and she cooked some meat on the stove. But she determined that their food was “knowledge tried by fire,” and they went into the living room (with her) where she handed the leader a Bible. He created several copies and handed them to the crew. He in turn handed her a thin, blue book containing their form of knowledge, which remained in her possession for 9 days. During these proceedings, the other family members were sitting in the living room in a state of suspended animation. (Her father, who had earlier gone into the kitchen pantry to observe the lights, remained there; it was later suggested that a fifth entity had joined him and, later, remained behind during the “onboard” experience.) However, Betty’s daughter remembered and confirmed part of the above testimony. Betty was then “talked into” going on board the entities craft. She was on board an estimated 2 hr. During this time she was led through several rooms, was given a physical exam in which they “tested her for light,” inserted a needle in her nostril and navel and scanned her with an eye-like device. (She was then placed in an enclosed seat, which was filled with a soothing liquid, in which she presumably “prepared” for an unusual journey. Accompanied by two “guides,” fore and aft,) she visited an alien realm where she saw cities, strange bug-eyed creatures, and a vast ocean. She had a traumatic religious experience, which led her to identify the beings as “angels.” Returning from the journey, she was led back to her home by two of the entities, one named Joohop; her family was still in a state of suspended animation. (The daughter later recalled being “baby sat” by the one remaining entity.) The beings, holding spheres of light in their hands, proceeded to put the family to bed, the abductee being the last. The incident is attended by automatic writing, speaking in strange tongues, visions, message transfer and telephone “contact,” some of these occurring under hypnosis and during the investigation. Betty was found to have several previous contacts and numerous post 1967 contacts also.

About a week after seeing a large metallic sphere hovering above a highway, Tad Jones was driving along the same highway at the same time, when he came upon a man standing by the road in approximately the same spot where the sphere had hovered. Thinking that it was a hitchhiker Tad slowed down and called out to him. The man did not reply and merely waved him on. He described the man as very tanned, wearing a blue coat and a blue cap with a visor. He was holding a box in his hand. It appeared to be some kind of instrument with a dial on it, like a clock, and a wire ran from it to his other hand. A later check with the local gas companies proved negative as far as being their man. Also no such instrument described by Jones was in use anywhere. He saw the same man again the next day but drove on.

Then they heard voices speaking in an incomprehensible tongue, as they saw the little man for the last time. He wore a one-piece suit with a broad black belt at whose buckle was a 6″ black box. The arms, held at his side, were not seen to move. The beard was a forked one. The children ran off to school, where their teacher wisely had them write down all the details separately.

Mrs Enid Campbell saw from a window what at first she took to be a full moon, but as it moved closer she could see that it was a spherical object, white in color like a frosted light bulb, with a shiny gold horizontal ring around the center in which were numerous round holes. The object came up to within several feet of her window before stopping, and through its semi-transparent material she could see a control panel with a lever on top, and two occupants, one seated at the panel, the other standing. They wore “shiny, silvery wet suits.” She called her sons Gene, 18, and George, 14, who arrived at the window in time to see the object as it rose and moved away. While it hovered nearby, two smaller white luminous spheres approached and entered through an opening, after which the holes in the central ring jetted out red fire. Then the object ascended vertically and disappeared. The snow on the ground under the spot where it hovered was melted; and the area over which the object approached the house failed to grow plants, while the plants elsewhere grew normally.

An Osorno engineer, out walking in a wood, saw a blinding flash of light. Observing a bright light nearby, he found it to be from a flying saucer, rust colored, and about 35 yards wide, which was hovering close to the ground. A man, 5-foot tall suddenly appeared below it, wearing a one-piece, transparent, tight fitting garment without helmet or shoes; his skin was white, his nose flat, and his hair long. His arms seemed “glued to his body.” This entity disappeared, and the craft began to grow larger and to emit a powerful violet light, while it turned orange-red in color. Finally it rose straight up at high speed. The witness fell ill afterward.

While on his way home the witness was approaching the intersection of Whiting Avenue and Water Street. As he came to a stop at this intersection he looked to his right and saw a very large object in the sky just above Whiting Avenue heading his way. The witness got out of his car in order to get a better look at the object. It was a clear moonlit night. The object appeared as a typical flying saucer shape, smooth metallic in appearance, round, and domed on both the top and the bottom. What initially caught his eye was what he thought were lights around the middle. As it approached, he estimated the size at about 150 feet across and about 25 ft top to bottom. The object approached silently directly over Whiting Avenue. The witness then noticed in detail how it was of a smooth metal, no rivets, and that the lights were actually windows, which light from inside shown through. It was just above the trees on either side of the street. The witness at first thought it was a blimp and approached the object and began to wave his arms and jump up and down, since now he could see human-like figures sitting behind the windows. The craft then stopped directly over his head, in the middle of the intersection; there was no traffic however. The witness noticed that the lights on his car went out and the streetlight also dimmed. His car engine that had been idling also stopped. He continued to shout to get the occupants attention and waved his arms. The craft then tilted at a 45-degree angle, which lowered the edge of it even closer to the witness. He could now see clearly inside. At each window sat two pairs of people, there were about two dozen windows. The craft, always silent, began to rotate slowly so as to give everyone inside a good look at the witness. He could see the center where a couple of men seemed to be at the controls. The occupants looked normal to the witness. Both males and females in matching pant suits. Some waved back at him, all looked to be amazed. After what appeared to the witness that all aboard had seen enough, the craft began to rise just above the treetops. It leveled off a bit but still had a slight angle to it. It then darted off skyward in a flash without a sound.

Timothy J, 15, heard his dog barking and a strange noise and saw an egg shaped UFO 75 feet long and 45 feet high descend and land on 3 legs in a field. An elevator like shaft opened underneath and several beings emerged, each carrying small spherical objects which they placed on the ground around the ship. Then they appeared to be waiting, until a man came from across the field, whereupon a conversation was held, and apparently conducted at least in part telepathically. The boy was then noticed and the man ran after him, catching him by the back of the neck, leaving burn marks. He was dragged almost to the craft when his captors suddenly looked panic-stricken, dropped him, gathered up the spheres, and re-entered the object, which took off rapidly.

M Louis Monin, 49, outside his house, saw an intensely yellow luminous object coming at very low altitude over a nearby cemetery; he called his 17-year old granddaughter Marie Solange to watch it. The object approached, exhibiting a fat cigar shape; then, after oscillating and turning red-orange, it landed in Monin’s garden, 110 ft away from the observers. It was about 60 ft long and 20 ft high. At each end of it a jet of “flames,” directed obliquely downward, appeared, and a crackling noise could be heard. Then a stout little man, 3.5-4 ft tall, appeared standing beside the object. No details were noted. Monin and his granddaughter immediately went back into the house to call his wife, but when they came out again the little man was gone, and the UFO now appeared as a red-luminous ball about 25 ft in diameter. This ball took off and was soon lost to view. The observation had lasted for 5 minutes. No traces were left in the garden.

The witness was in the kitchen preparing dinner when a call from outside from the father alerted the children to two UFOs over the house. According to the father, the objects were circling the house when first seen, and appeared round, bright and were very low. The witness could see “some people in a window on the spaceship closest over our heads. There were six people and going from left to right, the second person waved his hand over his head in a greeting. I waved back, and told my father. He couldn’t see them. I told my parents, ‘Look, there’s a guy waving at us!’ That’s when I knew they were my friends.” The objects hovered briefly over the house and then moved toward the high school, where the witness followed. “During that time I got the messages in my head and heard them talking to me just as if someone was speaking to you orally in a room.” The witness’s father drove the witness and the family dog to the school ground, where the observation and “contact” continued for an extended period. Although there was a dance going on at the time in the school, no one else appeared to notice the objects.

Esther I Millard, director of the Millard School, was returning to her home on the school grounds after her dog when she saw an object “the size of a small room,” 8 feet wide by 12 feet high, shaped somewhat like a blender with a very brilliant orange light at the bottom, hovering at an altitude of about 50 feet over one of the school buildings. A number of students were hanging out the windows of a nearby dormitory shouting, “UFO, UFO!” The object moved toward her rapidly, and she could see it was occupied by “a vertical shape of some kind” that ‘could have been a person;” the “shape” was seen through the transparent structure above the light. Half a dozen of the students had by now rushed out of the dormitory to see it. The object moved slowly westward towards the gymnasium building, seeming to land on the roof; it then took off toward the trees on the lakeshore and was lost to view.

Claude Edwards, a 64-year old farmer, saw a gray-green dome shaped object about 15 feet wide in his fields; he thought at first it was a parachute, but as he neared it he could see that it was resting on a shaft about 18’ wide that extended downward from its base. Around the edge of the dome were a number of bright-multicolored lights of oblong shape. Beneath the object were visible several entities less than a meter tall, also gray-green in color, moving about rapidly, with quick moving “lever or arms,” very wide-set eyes, and no visible legs. He also noted a protuberance where the nose and mouth would have been. The witness walked to within 30 feet and threw two stones at the object, which bounced off an invisible wall between him and the object. Walking up to within 15 feet, he was able to feel the pressure of this invisible barrier. The surface of the object was seamless, like gray-green silk. By this time the little creatures had disappeared inside the object, and it rocked back and forth several times, then took off silently, disappearing towards the northeast within seconds. He further described the creatures as appearing “like a penguin, not human without a visible neck.” The object, “it just looked like a big shell, grayish-green in color. There were still ground traces at the site three months after the encounter. At the site the soil was extremely dehydrated in contrast with the surrounding soil. At the center there was a depression 20mm deep sloping to 30mm in the central area.

Raymond Wettling said a 180 foot, cigar shaped UFO landed in a field beside Interstate Highway 70, and three silver suited occupants of the craft invited him aboard for breakfast. “He spent a pleasant hour and 45 minutes chatting with spacemen over coffee. His hosts showed him through the craft’s two rooms—one lit up with bright red lights, the other decorated like a modern office. After he left the ship, he said, it took off straight up at a high rate of speed.” No one else reported seeing it.

Josephine Lambert and Sam Rigel looked up from a shuffleboard court to see a UFO at an altitude of “only 20 feet above the telephone poles.” Gunmetal gray in color, it was shaped like a blunt oval, about 10 feet high and 25 feet wide; the underside was rough and dented. Around the circumference ran a row arched windows lit by a yellow light, with the heads of a number of “people or mannequins” visible in them; below the windows was a row of revolving green lights. The slow-moving object remained visible for 30-40 seconds.

The 7-year old witness remembers waking up in the middle of the night and rolling over to face a short figure standing next to his bed and smiling at him. He described the entity as having “burnt like cracked skin” with what appeared to be open sores. He had a small mouth and was smiling; a row of sharp teeth could be seen. He seemed to be naked and had a child-like torso. The witness stared for a few seconds and then went back to sleep.

Comments: Scary looking entity indeed, the sharp pointy teeth was also reported in entities seen in Puerto Rico in 1979 and I believe in Scotland in 1996.
