1947 Humanoid Reports. The beginning of the modern era, 1947 brought us “Roswell” and other interesting happenings. But humanoids had been seen before and crashes mentioned also in previous years. Methinks Roswell is just the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”, are we talking intergalactic warfare here? Following is a list of known humanoid encounters for 1947.

1.
Location. Island of Muck Highland Region Scotland
Date: 1947
Time: unknown
80-year old Alexander Gunn, an angler saw a mermaid like creature right off the coast of the island. The being was a female humanoid in appearance, and sat on a floating wooded box and appeared to be coming her long blond hair. She plunged into the sea when she noticed the witness looking at her. No other information.

Date: 1947
Time: morning
A young farmer was out plowing his field when he was suddenly confronted by a very tall gaunt looking individual, that resembled an albino and with distorted features. The stranger told the farmer that he had been held captive by “humanoids” in the interior of a nearby inactive volcano. The stranger then sketched a formula on a piece of paper which he claimed was the secret to growing huge vegetables, he then walked away and disappeared. The farmer indeed has been able to grow giant vegetables ever since.

The main witness, Jackie, her brother and cousins had gone to a local store to get some gum and as they headed down the country road Jackie noticed to her left what appeared to be a bright reflection, similar to a mirror being held to the sun. Being the adventuresome member of the four she went off to investigate. What she saw was a large silvery round shaped vehicle on the ground. She approached the craft and strangely a fence seemed to have popped up from the ground in few seconds, surrounding the vehicle. Her cousins tried to pull her but a being (not described) approached her and without moving its lips asked her what she was doing there. The being also said that they would not hurt her. From that point she vaguely remembered her brother and cousins crying. Her next memory was of seeing her parents and her aunt walking along the road looking for them. They had been gone for 5 hours. About three or four months after the encounter a gentleman in military uniform came to Jackie’s front door and spoke for a long time with her parents. She was told never to mention to anybody what had occurred.

She asked, “Who are you, Why are you here” in a trembling voice. The entity did not respond. He stood wordless in the same place. The mother rushed into the children’s room grabbed her daughter and hid her under the blanket. The boy hid under the other blanket. The woman began asking the alien again who he was and how he had entered the house. The alien then made a deep breathing sound and vanished in plain sight.

Time: unknown
Anglers were raising their nets with a catch of fish when they saw an object floating on the water’s surface that looked like a black submarine. The men were frightened at the object’s appearance, saying that it looked like a monster. They quickly started the boat’s engine. Suddenly a bright light from the “submarine” lit up the whole area and “little men” began running over the deck of the object. The men could make out that the little men carried some sort of apparatus around their waists. They were about the size of a 10-year old boy. After a few minutes the little men entered the “submarine” which began to glow so brightly that the anglers could not see it anymore. It then apparently submerged.

The man wore a shiny white outfit and some type of luminous headgear, he quickly approached the witness and pointing at her and at the ground he yelled something that sounded to her like ‘Terra” “Terra”! The witness fainted at this point and when she came to booth the man and the object were gone. Other independent witnesses thought there had been a “crash” of some sort and remembered that US and Cuban military forces had cordoned off an area and had called for heavy equipment and trucks to come in. Something of an unknown nature was taken from the site.

The 4-year old witness was outside in the driveway of her house, which faced at an angle onto the street corner. All the driveways on the corner faced that way instead of straight out. She suddenly noticed a strange figure in the driveway of the house opposite to hers. It was about 6ft tall and was all in black. It had no arms that she could see and seemed to be pear-shaped with a large round head and long thin black legs. There was no face, only a glass-like face striated like a motorbike headlight. She thought that it was both queer and fascinating. It was at the same distance from that gate opposite as the witness was from her gate. The witness took a step towards it and it responded with a step. With each step the witness took, it seemed to copy the witness. But it seemed to be getting closer to the gate than the witness. The witness began to feel apprehensive at it stared at her with it’s glass face. All of the sudden the witness was overtaken by fear and ran screaming into the house. Her mother went out to look around but did not see anything, the bizarre creature had vanished.

A young boy was playing in a wooded field when he caught sight of a silvery torpedo shaped craft in a clearing. Several four-foot tall humanoid figures stood next to the object. These were described as well built, wearing dark green close fitting coveralls. They had what appeared to be glossy black hair and seemed to be wearing dark wrap around visors. The beings seemed to be inspecting the craft and were moving about quickly.

The 16-year old main witness and his younger brother were resting and reading at a creek that ran near their home when suddenly they heard a hum, and saw a silvery metallic object with a dome on top land right in front of them. A door opened and 5 grotesque creatures emerged. These resembled praying mantises and wore dull silver body fitted covering. The main witness stood up as one creature came up to him, looked at him, & took the book from his hand. The creature then put his hand on the witness’s shoulder and began reading his thoughts. The creature had large black eyes that appeared to emit a clicking sound. Soon the creature rejoined the others and they walked around the object as if inspecting it. The witness then heard a telepathic message telling him that they were leaving, not to look up. The object then shot up emitting a deafening noise. Both witnesses were extremely thirsty after the encounter.

The 12-year old witness was staying home alone one day when through an open window she spotted a small white oval shaped craft going over some nearby vineyards where there was no road. Moments later two men approached the house; these men were very short and wore white tight fitting garments. They asked for a glass of water and asked some very strange questions about the nature of time. That same night the two little men returned and told the witness to follow them, while her family slept. They led her to a round object, which had landed among the olive trees. She then apparently went through an in depth medical examination inside the object. During that time a normal looking woman with long dark hair was with her comforting and calming her. The witness feels that something was implanted in her.

Location. Bahmut Kokchetav Region, Kazakhstan
Date: end of June 1947
Time: about midnight
18-year old local herdsman Alexey Romanovich Bodnya from a nearby collective farm suddenly noticed a brightly lit circle shining on the grass on the field, somehow resembling a micro-tornado. Next he heard a loud metal clicking sound and when he looked up he was stunned to see a disc-shaped object about 25 meters in diameter, it was bright and shaped like to deep saucers joined together, with a transparent dome on top 4 prop-like landing legs protruded from the bottom and moved up and down in rhythm. The disk had a wide cylinder shaped protrusion on its bottom that resembled a nozzle about 5 meters in diameter. A bright red-yellow rotating flame like light was visible inside it. The surface of the disk was silver, almost mirror like, reflecting the ground and grass beneath it. Powerful searchlights could be seen on the craft as it approached for a landing. The disk seemed to be unstable as if its flight control mechanism had been damaged, unable to maintain a horizontal position. The witness got the impression that the disk was going to tumble and crash, but it somehow managed to land safely. A ladder came out of the object and three aliens descended from the bottom section of the disk, when the round hatch opened Bodnya clearly heard metal clacking. The aliens were very tall, close to 3 meters in height. They looked very much alike almost like twins. Their faces were elongated, large eyes, rounder than the humans, long noses, high foreheads, grayish-bluish skin, and thin lips. They were dressed in silver reflecting tight-fitting overalls with head covering. One of the aliens was obviously the leader, he was gigantic in stature with broad shoulders, at least one meter taller than the other two aliens, he wore a sort of “apron” in front with a light on his breast area. He was apparently giving orders to the other two. The giant had even white teeth, wide dense brown, large beard, and light brown hair, light colored eyes and a powerful voice. One of the younger crewmembers was obviously in great distress as a result of their misfortune and was mumbling something and crying. In a harsh tone the giant leader ordered him to stop. The witness could not understand a thing but the meaning was obvious. The transparent dome on top of the disk was lifted up in order to initiate the repair procedure. While being opened a melodic vibrating sound was heard. The witness noticed that the transparent dome was made out of some crystalline substance, extremely strong in appearance. The witness was also sure that there was a fourth alien inside the disk, since the alien was leader gave orders to someone inside using some kind of “microphone”. That fourth crewmember was possibly a female who remained onboard the craft at all times. All the aliens wore some type of sophisticated device suspended on their chest area. The leader stood in the center and the other two one on each side as they conducted the repairs. The stunned witness had observed the emergency landing and repair of the disk hiding behind some shrubs with his horse. Suddenly his horse snorted loudly this apparently gave away his location. The aliens immediately shone a green beam of light in his direction. He received a clear impression that he had been photographed. The aliens seemed very curious and seemed to be enjoying themselves, as they looked him and his horse over. After that the giant leader looked at straight at Bodnya’s eyes and the 18-year old was suddenly able to hear the alien’s thoughts. The alien leader reproached him for hiding from them instead of greeting them like guests. His glance displayed kindness and understanding. He informed Bodnya that their craft had apparently been damaged by a lighting strike that affected their flight control mechanism. Bodnya then said, “I invite you to eat, you must be hungry, I know what hunger is from my childhood.” The alien responded, “I see, I see, you are small but brave, and who is that (pointing at the horse).” That’s my horse Serko responded the witness. The alien then told the witness that he was frightened of the horse and to leave it behind since he wanted to speak to him alone. The boy roped his horse and the giant alien took him by his hands and sat him on the rim of the disk. Bodnya got so close to the alien that he was able to listen to it’s heartbeat. Soon Bodnya noticed a wolf slowly approaching his horse and yelled at the leader, “Look a wolf” In a moment the leader stretched his hand and emitted some kind or thunderous beam that killed the wolf instantly. Where are you from? Asked Bodnya. The giant answered by pointing at the sky and said, “From there”. Is there a God? Bodnya asked next, “A God? maybe” answered the giant, who then asked Bodnya what was he doing there alone. He explained to the giant that he had been pasturing the bulls and horses. Next Bodnya asked if he could look inside the craft, he was allowed to. Looking in he saw a long corridor leading inside the craft, some frame-like walls and noticed that the ceiling was very high. He walked several steps into the craft but felt intense heat and nausea and could not continue. The giant then said, “Come here” The boy then rushed back and fell on the alien’s arms, he could not remember what happened next, he apparently lost consciousness and woke up again sitting on the grass looking at the repair operations. He was sure he had been examined onboard and implanted with some type of device. The rest of the night he watched the aliens finishing up their repairs. Bodnya noticed that the inner structure of the craft appeared very complicated filled with sophisticated equipment. After finishing their repairs the aliens left behind a small cross-shaped metallic fragment, which the witness buried on the edge of the field intending to dig it out in the future. Unfortunately he was never able to return to the site and eventually moved to the Crimea. The fragment apparently is still in the area now. The disk rose up and zoomed up to the sky at incredible speed disappearing from sight in a moment. Clear landing traces were left, observed by the other collective farmers whom he brought to visit the place the next day. He was threatened not to tell anyone of what he had seen. In 1990 while living in the hamlet of Molodezhnyi in the Crimea the witness one night was sitting down drinking tea when he was suddenly enveloped by the same green beam of light he had seen years earlier. At this point the witness was able to ensue telepathic contact with aliens, this was possible because he had been implanted with a small communications device in 1947. The aliens informed Bodnya that their planet was sterile and that they were vegetarians and that they had a base on the moon, which was covered with a transparent glass dome. They expressed contempt towards the human race and refused to reveal the location or name of their home planet. They confirmed to the witness that there was life after death and predictive coming catastrophes that would affect humanity. When Bodnya asked them why didn’t they contact humanity openly, their curious answer was, “Why don’t humans contact those in an insane asylum?”

Five-year-old Percy Galloway reported seeing a movement in the sky. At first he thought it was a comet when it suddenly made a sharp right directly towards the witness and hovered about a foot above the ground 200′ away from him. The witness stood his ground and did not run away. He described the object as circular, about 72′ in diameter, with domes on top and bottom. It had a black matte finish. It emitted a soft musical tone type sound. At the same time a fog-like mist, danced around its circumference. After a moment a brilliant light burst from the craft towards the witness, which had to cover his eyes with his elbow. When he took a peek he saw a large square door that seemed to implode, and there before him, stood a tall, human looking man. He had platinum silver gray hair and very deep blue eyes and was dressed in white tights and a thin gold belt. He radiated a warm, benevolent feeling of love. He said, “Percy come to me.” The witness did, carefully but unafraid. As he approached to within 20′ of the man, he was convinced that he was kind, gentle and a loving person. He spoke to the witness without moving his lips and before he could form a question to ask him, he said, “Percy, we speak by means of telemetric—much like what you humans call telepathy.” The stranger told Percy that as long as he was in his presence, he could speak to him the same way. Every time Percy tried to speak, his thoughts were read before he could mouth his words. Inside the craft, they walked down a cool, cave like hall. There was soft, white light everywhere but Percy could not tell where it was coming from. They entered a room in which 30 men worked on instruments. They did not notice them. Percy asked if he could go on ride on the craft. He was then taken to a control center where the man raised his hand in the air with the palm closed. The metal of the craft became as transparent as glass. The witness could see space. The man pointed to the planet Earth, which was about the size of a baseball. He told Percy that they were moving close to the speed of light and that they were going to move faster. He was taken to a special protective area of the craft due to the acceleration. He was placed in a room with a greenish blue light. He stood upright and although he could not move, he was aware of everything around him. A short time later they arrived at a mother ship, which was stationary at the edge of the solar system. The craft entered an opening in the mother ship. The crew and Percy left the small craft and were greeted by two human looking people. There were dozes of others present. As they walked down a hallway, Percy noticed three humans going the other way—a young white teenage girl, an old man, and a white male about 30-years old. They entered a room in which a ritual was about to start. Fifteen or twenty human looking men and women dressed in tight white pants and loose blouses stood in a circle. He felt that there was a leader present but he could not tell who he was. The participants stood with faces toward the ceiling, their eyes closed and palms opened outward. As Percy watched, each person’s body took on a golden aura. The being then took Percy to another room. There he was offered white chips and crackers and a blue liquid to drink. Then he went to another room where he sat on high backed chair that looked like metal but was soft like cotton. A metal headset with two triangles on it was placed on his head. He was told that he would be able to read and understand what was on the viewing screens. The screen then lit up with images that moved at lighting speed. He saw medical data and formulas. It was like looking into the future. He was told that he would not remember anything—that it was a time capsule. Later he was returned to earth and while hovering 500’ above the ground he was lowered to the ground within a blue beam of light.

Miss S was riding her motor scooter when she saw an object in the road ahead. When she got within 100 yards she saw that it was an oval, about 10 ft long & 5 ft high, and that two little beings, only 3 ft tall, dressed in gray with gray headgear, were busied about it. When she sounded her horn, they rushed back into the object through an opening 20″ in diameter; it rose 100 yards, oscillating, and departed like an arrow. It made no sound.

22-year old Andrew Cherry waited at his usual bus stop close to St Johns School in Baileyfield Road. Glancing skywards, he caught sight of a strange object, disc-shaped with what looked like a large glass dome in the style of an observation window. The UFO was hovering about 300 ft above the ground, close enough for Cherry to get a clear view of its humanoid occupant. The “alien” was wearing dark clothes and was sitting or standing beside a control panel of some kind. He also noted the marked metal texture of the spacecraft—“like rough diamonds”—-and the orange yellow color, which he thinks was simply a reflection of the sun’s rays. The area around the object looked hazy, possibly owing to the object’s energy source. Cherry could hear a low, smooth hum, which he associated with the flames he could see escaping from the disc. The object suddenly tilted, spun away and disappeared over the Fife coast in a matter of seconds.

Close to the eastern border of White Sands missile test range a large lenticular disc-shaped craft, 99 ft in diameter, with a dome on top and a small rim, crashed. US radars tracked it for a long time; it was flying very slowly, apparently the pilots died out of decompression long before the disk crashed. 5 short aliens, all dead, were found at the site. There was a small hole in one of the portholes. The craft was moved to Muroc AFB and later to Wright Patterson and moved to Hangar 18. The aliens were about 1.0m-1.2m in height, gray type with 3 webbed fingers, lizard-like skin, which was originally bluish-gray-green in color but the color was distorted since all were badly charred. Their origin was later established as star MD-5015 on top of Cassiopeia Constellation, 60 light years away. Several other craft from that same civilization have also crashed.

According to Gerald Anderson when he was 5 years of age, him and several other family members were out rock hunting in the desert area, when they came upon a gully near a shallow arroyo and saw an object that appeared to have impacted on a small slope. Curious, himself and his cousin walked towards it and noticed that one side of it seemed to have been ripped open, there was a lot of debris scattered around. They also saw four apparent occupants of the craft. One was sitting next to it and was apparently alive. Soon other witnesses arrived; some were college students from an Eastern university. But soon several armed military personnel arrived, these made threats to all those present and made them leave the area. The beings were described as wearing two tone gray uniform like outfits and small in stature. They had slightly lager heads than humans and huge bluish eyes; their skin was very pale. The hands were also long and slender. Two of the beings were apparently dead, one injured and the fourth was alive and appeared terrified. No sound was heard coming from them. This is probably one of the several crash retrieval incidents that occurred in the same area about the same time.

W D Secrest was hunting turtles in a creek when he saw three flying disc shaped objects over the area. Scared at first he hid behind a tree. He then noticed one of the discs descend and hover over a nearby field. He was able to obtain a good look at the object & was able to see a cockpit with two pilot-like figures inside as the object tilted. He also noted a black hump behind the cockpit, which he believed housed the engines. The other two discs remained high in the air, while the lower disc apparently surveyed the field. It suddenly zoomed upward, took a leading position in front of the other two discs and all three took off at incredible speed.

Levity also had its day, coming from Gene Gamachi, 1309 S 8 St, I W Martenson and Gordon Pollack, and a group called the “Center & J Street Neighbors.” The “neighbors” reported the disks, after landing on a neighborhood roof, disgorged several “little people” who vanished when reporters approached.

A merchant seaman who swore he never touched a drop telephoned the Houston Post and said a big silver disc landed in front of him while he was walking in Acres Home addition (on Rt. I49, just NNW of the Houston city line). A little man, two feet tall, and with a head the size of a basketball, climbed out of the disc and shook hands with him, the seaman said, then climbed back in and whirled away into the blue.
“Did he look like a man from Mars?” the reporter asked.
“I dunno,” the seaman replied, “I never seen a man from Mars.”

Hearing a whistling sound, Jose C Higgins, a topographer, saw coming down a lens shaped object with surrounding flange; it landed 150 ft away. It was of gray white metal, about 150 ft in diameter with a 3 foot rim, and 15 ft high, “crossed by tubes in several directions,” the whistling coming from these. Metallic legs, which bent a little, supported the craft. Walking closer, he saw through a black glass window 2 persons watching him; a door opened beneath the rim, and there emerged 3 people enveloped in inflated transparent suits, with metal boxes on their backs. They wore shirts and shorts, which looked as though made of paper rather than cloth. Their heads were almost hairless, their eyes round and large, and their legs relatively long; they were nearly 7 ft tall. All 3 looked identical. They spoke in an unknown language, and he noticed that they kept in the shade except for brief periods. One, pointing a metal tube at him, motioned Higgins to enter the door, through which he could see an inner door and the end of a “pipe.” Using gestures, Higgins asked where they came from. One drew on the ground a dot (the sun, “Alamo” in their language) surrounded by 7 circles, and pointed alternately to the seventh circle (called “Orque” Uranus) and to their craft. Not wishing to go there, Higgins showed them a picture of his wife, indicating that he did not want to leave her, and the allowed him to go. From the forest he looked back to see them “playing like children, jumping in the air and throwing enormous stones.” After half an hour, having “carefully examined their surroundings,” they re-entered and the craft took off.

His grandmother awakened the 9-year old witness when they saw a bright bluish light from behind their cottage. He ran out back and saw a large disc-shaped object hovering overhead ringed with multi-colored lights. His next memory was of was of waking up again and trying to explain how did the vegetable garden in the back of the house suddenly dried out; the whole garden was ashen and dry. His skin was also sunburned and he had a small puncture wound on his head from where blood was oozing out. (Possibly an unexplored abduction event).

Six Native Americans discovered a still smoldering metallic disc shaped object that had apparently crashed in the desert. Inside they found an alien creature (not described) that was injured, but still alive. Hearing the approach of military troops, the men decided to keep the being from capture and care of him themselves. Taking him to their home, they found the being could communicate with them through a crystal device that conveyed images. The Indians called the being the “Star Elder”.

Ascending a mountain stream, the Chiarao, R L Johannis came upon a 10-meter wide lens shaped object of red burnished metal, wedged into a rock crack so that it stood on edge. It had a low cupola bearing a thin telescoping antenna like a car radio’s but no openings. Seeing two “boys” 50 meters away, he called out to them, and began to approach them. When within 25 meters, he saw that they were midget-sized beings not over 3 ft tall, wearing dark blue overalls of translucent material, with bright red belts, collars, and cuffs. Their large heads were covered with broad tight fitting caps. They had immense round yellow green eyes with vertical slit pupils, and a mere slit of a ^-shaped mouth, which kept opening and closing. Their skin was dull greenish; they walked like robots, with arms hanging. After a couple of minute’s stupor, Johannis waved his geologist’s pick and called out, asking who they were. At this one raised his hand to his belt and a thin puff of smoke received was emitted; Johannis found himself flat on the ground, paralyzed, feeling as if he had received an electric shock. He saw one of the beings pick up his pick, with a green hand that had eight fingers, four of them opposite like our thumbs. Then with small steps they slowly walked to the saucer. A few minutes after they entered the rock crack, the disk rose vertically to about 15 ft above the ground (still on edge, “like a gong”) & hovered there, while Johannis tried to get up but fell back again. The disc tipped a bit, and then took off, with a blast of wind that rolled Johannis into the stony riverbed. It was more than 2 hours before he felt able to walk home. When he unpacked his pack, he found that the aluminum objects in it were missing. At this time he had never heard of flying saucers.

The humanoid walked around the craft then proceeded to pick up some stones from the ground. Soon he re-entered the object, which shot up into the sky at incredible speed. Burnt vegetation and rocks were found at the site.

A local Indian named Chuima reported seeing several oval shaped objects along with an object in the shape of a train hovering above and near a local lagoon. There was an uncanny silence in the air. He could see several short child-like figures walking near the object seemingly in the air. The entities seemed to be picking up round black “rocks” and passing them among each other.

3 or 4 local peasant women were returning to their village from the lake with sacks of cranberries when suddenly they noticed a fire in the forest and several “men” seating near it. One of the women put her sack on the ground and approached the fire. The men did not react to her presence. When she came closer she was stunned to see that those “men” were child-sized dwarfs with greenish faces. When they saw her, they all jumped up and ran from the area. The next day, other villagers found unusual “alien” footprints resembling horseshoes with 3 calks. Apparently the greenish dwarfs were hoofed.

Another alleged crash retrieval took place in Paradise Valley. Selman E Graves, a former businessman and pilot, witnesses part of the recovery along with two friends during a hunting trip. Graves reported: “There were some mine shafts—what you might call an outcropping—and a small hill, and we went up there and the three of us could look back and see everything that was taking place.” There was a large aluminum colored dome shaped object, which was roughly the size of a house—it was measured to have been 36 feet in diameter. They could see pitched buildings—tents—and men moving about. Supposedly there were a couple of small humanoids—about 4 and half feet tall recovered at the site.

Days after the preceding encounter, goat herder Jose Pancho Campo encountered a similar creature in a wooded field outside of town. While observing the enigmatic black clad creature he was astounded to see that it possessed a pair of goat-like feet. Terrified Campo began to scream, this apparently caused the creature to scamper away from the area at great speed. The witness became very ill after the encounter, loosing all his stamina. He died 15 years later after suffering from chronic pain.

During hypnosis experiment the witness entered a trance-like state during which she seemed to travel at great speed to a place with a cloudy atmosphere. She then entered a doorway into an underworld place where she saw machinery and heard the sounds of its operators. Suddenly two women seized and overpowered her and then took her before a man. The beings were tall. The man was nearly bald; the women wore silvery helmets and black shirts. She blacked out then awoke to find her shoulder exposed as the beings searched for a mark. They failed to find it then the man took out some sort of gun and burned the figures “H6AQ” onto her leg. (These were still visible when she came out of the trance!) The man gave a cackling laugh when he caused her this pain and then threatened her. The beings did not speak English, but somehow she understood them.
