1972 HUMANOID REPORTS Compiled by Albert Rosales

1972 Humanoid Reports. It was somewhat “the calm before the storm”; it was the last of the “slow” years of the decade of the 70’s. It was the year that was to usher in the “high strangeness period.” A turbulent era comprised of the late 60’s an early 70’s had come to end, a new era was upon us. Disco was just around the corner the eighties was just ahead, 1972 was sort of a bridge between the age of Aquarius and the beginning of the last age of humanity, maybe it would be the greatest, that is yet to be known. Following is a list of summaries of known humanoid encounters for 1972.

Location. Colonia Del Valle, DF Mexico
Date: 1972
Time: 0300A
The witness had returned from a party and as she closed the gate in her front yard she felt a presence behind her. Surprisingly she felt no fear as she turned around and saw a pleasant appearing man that asked her if she needed any help. She described him as very tall. Wearing a gray coverall outfit, with a thick belt around his waist. On the belt buckle area there was a small glowing box. He appeared to be around 45-years old, with longish black hair, fine chiseled features and very light skin. The stranger told the witness that he was able to talk to her because she had the “right type of energy.” Among other things he told her was that he was prepared to teach her many things, if she was ready. She invited the stranger inside but he refused saying that he had traveled far, but will one day communicate again with her even though he would probably be “very far.” Several days later the witness found a bizarre mark on her leg.

7.
Location. Grose Valley, Australia
Date: 1972
Time: 0700A
Camping in an isolated area Geoff Norman had walked over to the nearby Grose River for fresh water. As he squatted by the river he suddenly became aware that he was not alone. Looking to his right and only a few yards further down the riverbank he saw partly hidden by bush a smallish black human figure peering at him through the bushes. The little black figure appeared timid to Geoff, who had never seen such a creature before. The little naked male figure rose, but just as quickly turned around and fled into surrounding forest, Norman attempted to pursue the fleeing figure but he soon lost him in the rough forest terrain. The little figure was no more than 5 ft tall, had frizzy black hair, and to all appearances resembled a pygmy to the witness.

Location. Southwestern region of France (exact location not given)
Date: 1972
Time: night
The witness was staying in his country house in southwest France. Night had fallen after a day of rain, when he heard outside a kind of “splashing” sound. He went to his front steps and could see nothing; uneasy about the noise, he moved out further into the darkness and saw a few dozen meters away in an adjacent field, a luminous red sphere of 3 or 4 meters in diameter. He suddenly “felt a presence” nearby and turning, he saw in the semi darkness 3 or 4 beings that terrified him. They were dressed in very dark one-piece jump suits, were small in stature and of horrible countenance, with bald plates and full beards. In this few seconds of this confrontation, the little beings stood motionless, staring at the witness, while he felt “transfixed” by their gaze. Thoroughly frightened, the witness turned on his heel and rushed back to his house, where he seized and loaded his rifle. Returning to the same spot, he now saw the little beings moving quickly toward the red sphere at the other end of the field. He put his gun to his shoulder with the intention of firing at them but he suddenly found that he was unable to move and could not pull the trigger. The beings entered the object, which then took off silently and at great speed. When it had vanished the witness recovered his movement and went back indoors, greatly agitated. He found himself sleepless for several nights, and subsequently experienced various degrees of psycho physiological problems.

Time: night
The witness was getting ready for bed when she saw an entity outside her window. The being was about five-foot tall, had a large head, a pointed chin, huge yellow eyes, a thin small white body which glowed, no nose or mouth and no ears could be seen. She was then floated up to a light in the sky. Her next recollection was lying on her back on a table in a room. There were several humanoids in the room and one was leaning over her. He had a large head, a pointed chin and dark almond shaped eyes and a yellow colored body. She felt that the beings were doctors. A small black object was applied to her leg above her right knee. She was told telepathically that “It wont be long,” soon everything around her faded and she found herself back on her bed.

Location. Kiama New South Wales, Australia
Date: 1972
Time: night
A light coming into his bedroom awaked the witness; he saw a white beam of light with a fluorescent tinge evaporating from it. Because of the bright light he was able to make out a flying craft from which the beam projected at an angle to the ground of about 75 degrees. The beam was about 30 feet long and about two feet six inches in diameter. He saw the beam of light hit a caravan. Upon impact the light behaved like water, pouring over the caravan, over its roof, over its walls, over every nook and cranny of the van. It reached the beach and illuminated an area of sand about 40 feet at its widest. Inside the lighted area were two men standing motionless looking up at the craft. A young woman jumped up from a small fire and ran to stand with the two men. A second young woman was running backwards trying to brush the light off her arms and body. The light suddenly went out. The witness then blacked out, on coming to, he looked out the window. He saw the craft hovering over a street in front of the house. It maneuvered very close to the window. The craft seemed to be made out of unpolished zinc, he then saw a six foot wide & two feet six inches high window on the craft. He saw a man walked into the room of the craft and stand in front of the window. He held a flat object in his hands resembling a clipboard. Another man then entered the room looking at the other man and what he was doing. Both wore bright silver one-piece suits like thin wetsuits with no badges or markings. The last one to enter the room smiled at the other, then they both smiled directly at the witness. The witness became frightened and dropped to the floor yelling at everybody to stay away from the light. Suddenly there was a great noise and a severe vibration shook the house. There was a great noise above the roofs as the craft apparently took off.

Date: 1972
Time: night
Heriberto Garza was getting ready to go to bed one night and after turning off the light and getting between the sheets, he heard an unusual noise in the living room. Fearing a break-in, he promptly went to investigate and was surprised to find a tall man with distinguished, almost feminine facial features. Taken aback, Garza demanded to know how this figure had entered his apartment. The entity told him in perfect Spanish that it could obviate physical obstacles and to where it pleased—but the reason for its visit was to grant Mr. Garza “an experience that many would wish to have.” Garza claimed to have subsequent encounters and to have been taken aboard a spacecraft, where he met other beings similar in appearance to his original contact. One alien took his left hand and drew blood from his ring finger before returning him to his apartment, a return trip that he did not remember. Strange phenomena began to occur soon after this experience. One morning, while shaving in front of the bathroom mirror, Garza saw his reflection vanish, only to reappear as he heard alien voices ringing in his ears, bearing a message that he was unable to understand. At one point Garza called on the investigators and showed them something incredible. He proceeded to unbutton his shirt and the researchers were astounded to see a number of nipples growing randomly across Garza’s abdomen, some of them small, others larger and with abundant hair. The investigators concluded that something had been injected into Garza that tampered with his DNA. Soon after that “Garza” dropped out of sight and was not heard from again.

Date: 1972
Time: night
A woman was lying in her bed one night when she heard a sound of a helicopter overhead and felt like a whirlwind was surrounding her. Somehow she was taken out of the house and soon found herself inside an object where several robot-like beings examined her with numerous types of instruments. She felt no pain during the procedure and the “robots” communicated with her via telepathy. Among other things they told her that she was not fully developed. Before returning her back to the house the humanoids told her that she could wish for anything she wanted it and they would grant her the wish. She told them that she wanted to marry. They thought it was a small wish and told her she should wish for bigger things, but she declined. The instruments were removed from her body and she was brought back home. Later one of the “robots” returned explaining that they had “forgotten” an instrument. He soon dismantled a machine on her leg and left. A large blue spot remained in that area of the leg for several days.

8-year old Liz De Albuquerque was preparing to go to sleep one night and was sitting on her bunk looking at her parents as they peacefully slept when she noticed a bright glow forming above the table in the kitchen. For a few moments the glow remained hovering above the table when suddenly a small green colored creature came out of it. The small creature seemed to be very curious about its surroundings. Moments later it began approaching the witness’s room. Afraid, the witness hid under the covers. After awhile thinking that the creature was gone, she uncovered herself only to find the creature standing over her, looking down at her. The witness screamed in terror and at the same time the creature moved back emitting an inaudible murmur, it then glided rapidly back towards the kitchen and re-entered the bright glow. The witness described the creature as having large round protruding eyes, small ears, and thin lips (almost unseen). It had a large head and a pointy chin completely devoid of hair. The girl also noticed several dark “splotches” on the skin of the creature around the shoulder area; they appeared to be reddish in color. The creature did not appear to be wearing any clothing. As soon as the creature disappeared into the bright glow it vanished. Liz was then able to wake her parents, who did not see anything unusual.

Location. Iron Mountain, Michigan
Date: 1972
Time: 2250
The witness was driving out of the parking lot of his foundry job when he noticed an object flying about 100 ft in the air above a junkyard. He noticed 4 lights, 2 red and 2 green. Suddenly it shot a bright beam down onto several of the wrecked cars in the junkyard, shut it off, and proceeded east repeating the same thing. The object then stop to hover above some trees and bushes. The witness drove closer to the object and realized it was a giant round disc shaped craft. There was a dome-like structure on the top with a giant pane of glass with 2 creatures standing. One pointed towards the witness car, turned to the other and immediately the glass was covered by some kind of barrier so it simply looked like a disc with a dome. The witness then stood directly under the object where he saw a mesmerizing red light that had an extremely tranquilizing effect on the witness. The underside of the object had a slight lip around the edge. Crisscrossing the belly were what appeared to be some kind of tubes or I-beams, which passed through to each of the lights resembling a “cross” or plus sign. Eventually, the witness heard a whine like an electric motor starting, and then silence set in. The lights then became more intense, while four globes beneath the object began to send off what looked like bolts of lightning. Out of nowhere and completely encircling the disc, came a coil, which looked like it was made up of overlapping scales, like fish scales, roughly spherical in shape and about 12 inches at the widest. The disc then rose cleared the top of the foundry roof and proceeded slightly northeast, it momentarily turned its lights off as it glided across a street. The craft then stopped and disappeared. The witness then suddenly found himself back home. Years later the witness remembered being lifted up on a beam of light and being inside of the disc. There he met the same two beings he had seen previously. One of the humanoids was about 4-½ ft tall, the other 4 ft. Their skin was kind of iridescent gray and they had large eyes, no ears, or mouth. They had 4 fingers on each hand with a tiny suction cup-like on each finger. Inside the object everything was metallic with sky-blue seat cushions. The humanoids seemed to lack what we would call substance, rather like a holographic image of one kind or another. He was told telepathically that they had needed electrons from the iron in the junked cars, which they needed as fuel. The witness could not remember how he left the object.

A husband and wife saw a lighted craft coming over the woods at tree level. The object was moving very slowly from the northwest, passing between the house and the neighbor’s house to the west. All they could see was a very bright interior, with a brightness not accustomed to on earth. They could see the outline of 4 windows, approximately 8×10 ft in size. There were two humanoids inside. No exterior lights were seen. The two humanoids were human-like, and wore Navy/Air Force type uniforms. One was apparently in full uniform; the other had his jacket off, to expose a white shirt. On the men’s jackets the witnesses could see brass buttons and 2 or 3 gold stripes on the left arm sleeve near the wrist area. They could not see the men’s hands, which appeared to be resting on some type of panel just below the window edge. One of the men had blond hair, fair skin, thin and was maybe 6 ft 4 inches tall. The other was shorter and slightly bigger built, and was carrying a clipboard in his hand. He turned and moved towards the other figure and disappeared. The craft passed silently heading towards the south and disappeared from sight.

Location. Gadianton Canyon, Utah
Date: 1972
Time: 2230
Four coed friends were driving on an isolated road near Modena when they reached an area where two sets of blacktop highway headed off into the desert—one veered sharply to the southeast, the other shooting northeast toward the canyon country. They decided to take the left road toward the canyon country. Five minutes later, the Chevy entered a red rock canyon. One of the girls suddenly noticed that the car’s headlights were shining more brightly on the pavement. Looking closer she let out a gasp. The white centerline was gone. Instead of black asphalt, they were driving on white cement. Suddenly the highway ended abruptly at a rocky cliff face. The Chevy screeched to a stop in front of the cliff. They kept driving on the canyon road, hemmed in by red canyon walls. They canyon gradually gave way to open country. The girls gasped. Instead of moonlit desert, they saw grain fields on the right and a large lake, with stands of ponderosa pine, on the left. Up ahead they spied what appeared to be a tavern and an adjacent parking lot. It seemed to have a neon sign, but they could not read it. What should have been letters were brightly lit squiggles and curlicues. Some men came out of the building. They slowed down their vehicle and one of the girls rolled down the window in order to ask for directions. They noticed what appeared to be consternation among the men. As if they’d been startled by some unknown animal. One of the girls stuck her head out the window and suddenly let out a terrified scream. She yelled at the driver to leave the area quickly. They looked back and saw that four queer-looking machines described as egg-shaped mounted on tricycle wheels were chasing them. That is with two large wheels on the front and a smaller wheel in the rear. A single bright white headlight shone from the front of each pursuing machine. They made a strange whirring or buzzing sound as they rolled along. Ahead the road led back into a red-rock canyon. The road was very narrow and seemed to hem them in. They could no longer see their pursuers. Minutes later they roared out of the canyon, back into the familiar desert. The car skidded down an arroyo and came to rest at the bottom. The girl that had stuck her head out the window was hysterical and could only describe that the men were not “human.” An hour later they managed to flag down a highway patrol trooper that towed their vehicle from the area. No one could explain how the Chevy had gotten nearly two miles north of Highway 56 without leaving any physical trace of its passage through the rough desert terrain. Had the girls somehow gone into another dimension?

The witness (involved in other encounters) noticed a metallic purple-green glow shining through the treetops, illuminating his yard. He went to the patio door and looked up to see a disk about a hundred feet up hovering silently, it then dropped down inches off the water in front of the boat dock. The craft then slid inches above the surface of the water to the other shore and shot straight up and out of sight. The witness then went to the deck and noticed a smell of ozone in the air. The witness dog ran out the patio door and ran toward the back of the garage. He then stopped, his tail wagging. The witness then looked towards the garage and saw three tall, thin, humanoid silhouettes backlit by moonlight standing behind the garage. Terrified the witness ran into the house.

A 27-year old trucker driving on the outskirts of Santiponce observed a tall thin figure step out into the middle of the road. He was forced to reduce his speed as he watched the figure thinking at first that it was a “naked man”. But as the headlights illuminated the figure the witness realized that it was not human. It had a large egg shaped head and long dangling arms. The humanoid remained unmoving in the middle of the road gesticulating briefly with his arms as if ordering the truck to stop. Scared, the witness accelerated the truck and headed straight towards the strange individual. As he neared the two-meter tall figure he noticed that it appeared to be completely covered in a shiny tight-fitting suit. The figure suddenly jumped head first into a group of small trees on the side of the road using inhuman agility. Terrified the witness drove quickly away and did not see the bizarre creature again.

Darrell Rich, 16, John Yeries, 16, James Yeries, 14, and Robbie Cross, 15, were driving in a car when they saw a bright blue white oval light cross the road at telephone pole height. After parking their car near a bridge, they heard a scream from near the road, and their flashlight showed a hunched over figure, 50 feet away, about 7-foot tall, a green or brown in color. It had a large tear drop shaped ear and no hair, with lumps all over its body. It turned to one side and ran. The boys fled to their car and took off. As they drove, they saw several orange red and blue white luminous balls in the fields besides the road; one orange ball suddenly shot straight up and disappeared. At one point they also saw “a glowing object that had the appearance of a human figure.” The father of Darrell Rich drove back to the site and gout out; he heard a terrifying growl that convinced him something abnormal was there.

32. Location. Blount Island, Jacksonville Florida Date: January 26 1972
Time: 0300A Norman Chastain was out fishing late at night in the St. Johns River when he saw something like “half a ball” with orange and blue flashing lights, which came “directly toward my boat” and hovered noiselessly overhead at 150 feet. He turned off his light and the object slowly moved off. He had drifted ashore and with his spotlight saw in the nearby woods “the darndest looking human-like creature one could ever imagine.” A brilliant white light that paralyzed him until morning immediately hit him. He noticed an “overpowering stench” in his clothes and hair, and threw away the clothes. Three nights later he smelt the same odor again, and in the morning found a fungus like growth similar to “a cluster of several flesh colored heads looking at me;” he said they “had teeth, big eyes, a wide mouth, and pointed ears,” and looked “like the devil looking creature I saw on the island.” (Blount Island).

33. Location. Near Strasbourg France Date: February 1972
Time: afternoon A housewife was alone at home preoccupied with some house chores when she suddenly heard a loud undulating sort of murmuring sound, similar of that to leaves falling to the ground. Suddenly she started to rise into the air, the walls, and the roof disappeared and she floated upwards into the sky. At one point she thought she had died and she floated within a gray misty cloud. Frightened she saw a motionless metallic object hovering above her. An interior voice tells her not to be afraid. A small dark trap door opened up on the bottom of the object and she floated inside. A bar of diffused light apparently is pressed against the back of her head, she was unable to react but felt no pain. Inside she found herself standing in a gray kind of footbridge surrounded by a tangle of other identical footbridges. Soon an “invisible power” directed her towards a nearby corridor and towards a circular room with metallic walls. There she saw numerous human-like, men and women seated in individual chairs, which were placed around the circumference of the room. The same force that had guided her into the room guided her to an empty seat, which she sat down on. Next to her was a circular porthole and looking through it she could see that the craft was moving at a low altitude above a stretch of water, which appeared to be an ocean. She saw an object, which was apparently accompanying her object in formation; there was another identical above it. The witness had the impression that both objects flew in conjunction with each other, one possessing power, and the other speed. Around each craft shone an extremely bright white light. Soon she was confronted by about thirty pairs of human like “twins”, who appeared to be human robots, or copies of copies, apparently devoid of any emotion of feelings. Each time that one of them pressed on a metal panel that faced the witness it would light up. They seemed to operate in pairs of two and in perfect order, and each time they walked on the center of the room, which was illuminated the “aliens” would levitate up into the air and to the ceiling. She described the “clones” as about 1.50m to 160m in height, with beautiful fair complexions, blue eyes, wearing white combination suits topped with an egg shaped hood over their heads. Two of what the witness called “hermaphrodites” approached her. They appeared to act like androids telepathically communicated with the witness in a strange metallic voice. They told her that this was the third time they had met her, even though she had no recollections of the previous events. The witness understood that these humanoid clones had limited reproductive capabilities and that their “spirit” diminished while being “remade”. They did not exchange any words between them or with the witness. As under a charm or spell, the witness continued to stare at them fascinated. One of the humanoids approached the witness and telepathically told her the following, “We are of your parents, combined by nature.” Approaching closer he inserted a tiny flask of glass in the corner of her eye and withdrew liquid from it. She then heard in her mind, “These contacts take place with a great number of people with the goal to prevent your mutual destruction and the disappearance of your race.” Then, without saying a word the humanoids exchanged mysterious signals, which the witness was unable to understand. One of the beings then approached the metallic panel and pressed it, again becoming luminous. She heard additional telepathic messages, while the humanoids seemed to have disappeared from view. One of the messages contained the following message, “Each human being is a universe in miniature.” At this point the witness apparently lost consciousness and found herself back in her home. She did not hear any noises and searched around the house finding all the doors tightly closed.

Time: morning
Two men, Tito Rojas, and Adolfo Penafiel were crossing the desolate Pampa Carbonera south of Nazca in an old delivery truck when the truck’s radio began to malfunction. Bursts of static obliterated the music. Finally it emitted just static, and then it went silent. Suddenly the pickup truck’s engine began missing on all cylinders. Finally it quit completely, and Tito coasted over to the sandy shoulder of the highway. Soon, Adolfo, who had been looking toward the rugged Quebradas of the coast range, saw a silvery gleam in the midst of the dwarf sand dunes. Adolfo saw it too. Curios, both men slipped down the highway embankment and decided to go and investigate. As they neared the spot, they came upon the mirror-like surface of a large disc. The object rested on a tricycle landing gear. There was no sign of any lights, windows, or openings. They described the craft as 15 meters long and four meters high. To add to their surprise, the craft’s occupant rounded the front of the saucer. Adolfo described the figure as “a man of average height, wearing green clothes under a transparent space suit.” Instantly Tito and Adolfo began running towards the saucer. But as soon as he saw them, he stopped his inspection of the area, walked behind the object, and disappeared. The saucer rose into the air with a shrill metallic whine. It rose up into the sky at a nearly vertical angle and disappeared. The truck soon started afterwards.

35-year old Carlos Belevan Mesinas reportedly came in contact with human-looking aliens from the Sirius star system. The alien’s skin was tanned (like African American, but not entirely black) dark brown in color. They were of medium height (about 1.8 m) dressed in tight fitting overalls, with helmets, black belts and big black high boots. Their eyes were light green and transparent. Their hair was light chestnut in color. There were 4 aliens, and they told him their names and positions in the crew. Their leader was called “Arut”. The aliens told Mesinas that they lived in 3 planets around the Sirius star system. The witness experienced additional contacts until June 1974.

The two witnesses were driving on their way home on a rural road and were approaching several towers of high intensity electrical wires, that were located about 50 feet off the highway. As they approached the area they saw a glowing man shaped figure standing at the base of one of the towers. The figure was very bright and somehow resembling the “snow” on a television screen. They stopped the car at the edge of the road and the figure started to walk towards them. Terrified they drove off at high speed; looking back they could see the figure turning to follow their departure.

Diana Granville Matthews was driving along the Warminster/Bath Road when she saw an orange disc, perfectly circular to begin with but ovular when crossing the path of the vehicle. It came from a hedgerow to her left and sailed down to road level, no more than 12 yards in front of her car, before lifting and careering over another hedgerow and out of sight. Bemused, she did not stop to investigate and continued on. No sooner had her dazzled vision grown accustomed to the road outlines again, a few hundred yards ahead she saw, walking towards her, on the far side of the road, a tall male figure in all white clothing. His legs loped along and she noted little about his face coloring. But he was of giant stature. She pressed hard on the accelerator and saw the tall figure striding along through deep pools of water at the roadside. Scared she drove home. Around 0500A she was awakened, as though from a dream, by a sharp rapping on her front door. She heard a voice clearly calling, gently and insistently. She got up, opened the front door but saw no one there.

Luis Bracamonte, a truck driver, saw a sparkling mist appear over the fields; he stopped his truck and saw the midst replaced by a blindingly vivid light. When he opened his eyes again he saw, 100 yards away, “a large oblong machine with a rim on the upper part and wide projections in the under part.” Three men with very wide shoulders emerged, walking as though with difficulty; they “looked like Chinese, but with sharper features.” They came up to the witness and one of them touched him, gripping his elbow. They spoke to him in a strange language, but he understood that he should not be afraid of them. Then one of them took out “a plaque with two shining symbols on it,” and showed it to the witness. The conclusion of this encounter was not reported.

Two young boys saw a huge seven-foot tall humanoid appear out of nowhere, it seemed solid and had three fingers in each hand, the middle finger being longer. It was hairless, without a nose or ears; it had slight indentations suggesting the presence of a mouth and eyes. Its body glistened as if wet and it wore a simple tunic with a satch and sock like shoes with seams. Its head was extremely large and it had short stout legs and very long dangling arms. While the creature was in sight its left arm kept swaying back and forth.

The witness was roused from sleep by a loud humming sound and saw a light coming in the window. Looking out, he saw a blinding white light surrounded by a “fog,” and thought that his car was on fire. He ran out, started the car; he found himself in deserted moorland, and stopped; at that time, a “human like figure” ran past the car from the rear. “Suddenly, it vanished.” He got out of the car and saw on the ground to his left a lens shaped object about 100 feet wide, surrounded by a greenish glow. The light issued from windows in the object and three beams shone upward from it. In one of the windows he could see a human like being. Approaching to within 10-12 feet, he saw this figure motion to him to go back. The figure was 5-5″4″ tall, wore a tight fitting coverall of metallic appearance that had a belt with a tube that ran to his collar, had almond shaped eyes and seemed to be smiling. Behind him was a sort of instrument panel. Several other humanoid figures were seen standing behind other windows. Then the object “jumped” from the ground, “floated” for 30 feet, and then was “hurled away” with a scraping sound.

A platoon of US special operations soldiers came upon a group of humanoids that were apparently sorting human body parts into large bins and sealing them. A fire fight ensued in which several of the aliens were killed after it was learned that the light silver colored suits they were wearing were essentially “bullet proof.” All but one of the alien casualties resulted from “head shots.” As the soldiers pulled back several of the aliens quickly packed as much as they could. One pressed the side of a landed oval shaped craft nearby and a gangway slid down. They all scrambled into the opening, which disappeared as it closed. The hum from the craft increased as it rose and the “legs” pulled into the body. It then accelerated at fantastic speed and disappeared from sight. The body of a slain soldier began to decompose almost immediately after death. The military unit involved was then held incognito for debriefing for several days.

Luis P and a friend, Rodolfo, were traveling on the isolated road Ruta 2 when all of the sudden Rodolfo woke up screaming asking Luis to let him drive, all this under a very heavy rainstorm. Luis stops the truck and Rodolfo assumes the steering wheel. Soon they reach a detour on the road that apparently leads them to a field in the middle of nowhere. The rain had abruptly stopped. Soon they continued on to their destination and upon arrival go immediately to sleep. Soon they are woken up and realize that they had been sleeping for 24 hrs and have no recollection for almost one whole day. Years later Luis starts to remember what had occurred the night of the drive under the rain. He recalled being in a wheat field and feeling extremely cold. Soon a huge top shaped craft appears suspended very close to the ground, a stairway like protrusion is extended from the object to the ground. Two figures descend down the stairway. These are described as human-like in appearance about 1.80 meters in height, wearing a large visor helmet. The two figures stood about 15 meters from both witnesses. Using hand signals the two humanoids signal to the two men to follow them up the stairway and into the object. They notice that there were three wide silvery steps on the stairway. Inside the object there is a small illuminated compartment at first. There is a chair resembling that of a dentist’s chair in the middle of the room, black in color. Gently, one of the men (Luis) is escorted to the chair and sat down. In the meantime Rodolfo is taken to another sector of the object in which he is asked to sit down and secured with what appeared to be seatbelts. The whole time Luis felt very comfortable, even though he seems to be sitting at a 90-degree angle. He could not see any windows but did see a door, which appeared to have been the main entryway. He noticed that the two humanoids wore outfits similar to those wore by the TV “Michelin” man but thinner in appearance; their feet were covered with flipper-like shoes. At this point a round crystal bowl is placed over his head and inside everything becomes orange in color and foggy, total silence permeated the room. At this point Rodolfo walks back into the room. The humanoid accompanying Rodolfo motions to the other humanoid instructing him to remove Luis from the chair. A door becomes visible along with the stairway. Luis remembers slipping on the wet stairs as he exited the object. Their next memory is watching the craft departing at very high speed in total silence. The two men then walk back to their truck. Luis felt “a great joy” after the experience, somehow knowing that the aliens “were pure of heart” something impossible to find among humans.

B, a youth, was walking from a neighbor’s house when he saw lights ahead of him, which went out. He walked on and came upon a metallic square top shaped “machine” blocking the whole width of the road. The whole object was luminous, but a brighter light, yellow in color, came from rectangular windows around its circumference and from a semicircular light on top. He could hear movements inside the object. Then he realized he was paralyzed. The whole side of the object in front of him opened up, with a noise, and there emerged from it something shaped like 2 triangles base to base, which was rotating; this object remained near the rim of the UFO. From it came a voice, either telepathic or real, which said in French, “Do not speak to much, for you too will speak no more.” The voice was harsh and loud, the words separated; there was a buzzing background sound. The witness remained there paralyzed for a total of half an hour; we are not told whether he saw anything else happen. The next morning he and his father found at the scene, on the snow banks beside the road, curious round tracks, 6″ in diameter, with 3 clawed protruding toes; these tracks, which touched one another without separation, led to the top of the snow bank, where they ceased abruptly.

A carpet dealer, was driving near his house when he came to a clearing in woods in which rested on legs a large flat oval white luminous object, about 35 ft x 50 ft x 10 ft high. It had a small cupola 3 ft high and 6 ft wide. It was only about 40 yards away from the witness car. He stopped to look at it, and then found that his headlights were out and that he could not restart his engine. For 45 minutes he sat there, feeling a progressive paralysis of his limbs and voice. Then he saw a thin small blackish being, not much over 3 ft tall, run out of the woods, jump onto the disc, then jump into the cupola, which he seemed to enter without an opening. Immediately the object took off “dead leaf” fashion, its luminescence increasing, rose to an altitude of about 200 ft, and streaked off. The witness, who had not believed in flying saucers, was left in a stupefied state, crying at his steering wheel. In this condition a neighbor, who took him home, found him. For some weeks he suffered from amnesia for the events of about 6 months before the encounter. The next day numerous tracks and holes were found on the ground at the landing site. In a pasture next to these woods a dead cow was found, with a 1.5″ triangle of holes on its forehead.

Mr. & Mrs Ron Ferret, shopping on a downtown Grafton street, saw 3 odd dwarfish people—two male and a female—3.5″ tall and wearing baggy clothes that gave the impression of simulated “ordinary man in the street clothes.” The material was unfamiliar to Mrs Ferret. The dwarfs had rough, wrinkled skin of deep brown color that looked very old, although they seemed to be young. They had large, slanted “oriental” eyes that seemed to “pop out,” very short hair, and pointed ears. They shuffled along the streets in sandals looking in store windows, and other passerby kept well away from them. They said nothing. The Ferrets came within several feet of them, and they suggested the three might be performers from a visiting children’s show, but they concluded the figures were even too strange for that.

Howard Johnson was staying at a local chalet bungalow with his wife and her parents. One morning Howard happened to glance out the bathroom window when something caught his eye. At a distance of barely 400 to 500 yards was a classic “flying saucer” heading very low in his direction at a high rate of speed. Less than 75 yards from the chalet, the solid, silver colored saucer came to an abrupt halt. At which point Howard clearly made out a transparent dome on top, while a bank of very fast, multi-colored lights flickered underneath. Howard forced himself to look away from a couple seconds, but when he turned back the saucer was still there. The craft was about 20 yards across and totally silent. Within the transparent dome, he saw three figures. One was taller than the other two, pale colored, and human in appearance. From his description, the others were archetypal “grays.” Though he could only see the upper portion of these figures, Howard said they were dressed in a silver colored uniform. He received the impression that the taller figure was in charge of the others, for he was standing in the center and appeared to be manipulating something out of sight, possibly controls of some kind. Then the craft slowly began to move, until out of view behind the window frame. At this point Howard yelled out for his wife and in-laws and they rushed in to see the craft disappeared into the distance.

He seemed to bring into the shop and icy coldness. He communicated with the witness telepathically, saying, “Observe and reflect. We will gather.” He touched D G’s cheek with a long index finger, saying, “The mark will tell.” His yellow eyes seemed to emit rays of light that moved over D G’s body.

The witness was driving on an isolated road when he saw bright lights on a field. Thinking that it was a farmer with a tractor he drove to the source of the lights. He parked his car and walked toward the lights. Soon he came upon a humanoid figure, described as having four arms, tall, well built and wearing a tight fitting black coverall & a black skullcap. He also wore white gloves & a white belt. His facial features were not quite human; his eyes were large and round. The humanoid spoke English and told the witness that he was fourth in command of the nearby vehicle, which the witness was unable to see due to the glare. The four arm humanoid said that he was making minor repairs to the object and that he himself was a mis-creation on his own planet. He appeared able to use his four arms efficiently. The witness conversed with the humanoid and persuaded him to let him onboard the craft. Inside the craft he entered a room and soon went into a trance like state and does not remember the trip. After arriving to what appeared to have been a “space station” he saw many different types of humanoids. During his stay there he was given a translator device and was shown many locations including libraries and large glass like buildings. After what seemed to have been 2 weeks he was returned to the same spot where he was taken from. He saw the luminous craft leave without making a sound.

David Jones and a friend were looking out the first floor window of their flat when they spotted a single light low above the terrace house roofs, some distance away. This light then divided into two then rapidly into three, and approaching their position very fast they could clearly see a wedge-shaped craft, flying so low that they could plainly see a man in a high collared black or navy blue uniform looking back at them, from inside some type of cabin. The craft then passed over their roof, emitting a sound similar to air displacement. The craft then turned around and came back over the roof emitting another whooshing sound. It appeared to be emitting a dull red flame from its center. The craft then disappeared in the direction it was first seen coming from.

Mrs Hilda McKay and her elderly mother were driving west from Las Cruces to Deming on Rte. 10 when they saw a “huge and blinding” beam of blue light shine on them from just above and ahead in their lane. Mrs McKay prepared to swerve around an object and as they passed by the source of light they saw two “men” bathed in another brilliant blue beam. Stocky of build and of average height, they were dressed in pale blue, bulky quilted coveralls with wide belts, gloves and boots; they wore helmets similar to a motorcyclist’s with a dark front visor that concealed their features. They stood rigid, one with its back to the women, the other facing him, apparently in communication and wholly unaware of the women’s presence; they stood under the apparent source of light, and the witnesses saw rods 4 or 5 inches thick—apparently the support of the object above—to either side of the figures; the object, not clearly seen, was dark and about the size of a truck. The original beam of light followed the women’s car as they drove past and then went out. Looking back, all was dark. Later, both women experienced a burning, aching pain in their chests.

Lying beside it & moving about on the ground were 2 “persons of small stature,” who as he passed got up, muttering to one another, not showing the witness their faces. They were wearing light colored capes that reached the ground, with long sleeves; they had dark waist-length hair. The witness returned to the spot with 2 other men, but they saw only the object in flight, which now looked around and carried a bright searchlight. At the site was a strong smell of “gas & burnt gunpowder.”

Two women and a five-month-old toddler were on their way back to their home when they saw flashing lights high over the area. They were blue, red, and green lights. The lights suddenly plummeted towards the vehicle. The lights suddenly stopped 50 feet from the vehicle. They could now see a metallic saucer shaped object, gray in color, with a dome that had what appeared to be rows of windows. The two adult women could see inside four to five beings with a grayish skin tone, with huge black eyes that were looking directly at the witnesses. Suddenly from somewhere on the craft a beam of brilliant, blue white light struck the vehicle. It was so bright that it hurt the witnesses’ eyes. The light remained on the vehicle for about 15 seconds and then suddenly imploded back into the craft. The craft then slowly drifted away at the same altitude still emitting the same low humming sound. They were apparently other witnesses in the area.

She thought that if you were not looking in that direction you never would have seen it. It was saucer shaped with a dome on top, along side of it on the left was a very tall person dressed in an outfit which glowed the same as the ship, another similar figure was walking towards the road (the craft was about 30 meters away from fence line, which was 5 meters from the road) and another one was standing on the right side of the object near a dead tree, all had the same clothing on and helmets with black visors. She described the aliens as being very tall, approximate 8 ft in height. As the car drove by the witness noticed that they seemed to be collecting items from the ground. She also noticed that the one walking towards the road seemed to have turned his helmet and look at the vehicle as it drove off. The witness never did tell anyone else in the car what she had seen.

He went to investigate and notice a strange object that had apparently landed on the side of the house. Looking out the window he noticed a huge cylinder-shaped object orange-white in color resting in a vertical position close to the house on a nearby field. A gaseous-like ring encircled the upper half of the object and on it a 2-meter tall dark figure appeared to be walking around, circling the object. The young witness ran into his cousin’s room and woke them up. All three boys watched the object from the window. At one point the enigmatic figure in black stopped directly in front of the window. No facial features could be discerned. It seemed to be wearing a tight-fitting black suit. This scared the young witnesses, which quickly ran into their respective rooms. They dare not to look outside again but still could see the strong orange light coming into the house. The light remained outside for two hours. No trace of the craft or being could be found in the morning.

Six young people, who had driven to Bents Basin, found their car would not start; then they saw, on top of a hill 200 yards away, a disc shaped object resting on at least 3 legs. Its red luminescence pulsed in synchronism with a strong humming sound, and the observers experienced severe pulsating headaches. They got their car started, but before they had gone far their engine caught fire. Two of them set to walk out of the area for help, but came running back to report the approach of a huge human like “shadow.” They hid in the grass a saw a “robot” 8-10 feet in height approach the car, gliding rather than walking. This “robot” looked glossy and had “a round, helmeted head, broad shoulders, and arms that came to pointed hands;” the legs were not seen. When it came near, this figure simply disappeared. 30 minutes later, when the terrified witnesses retreated from the area, the red glowing object was no longer there.

A farmer was cultivating his fields in the middle of the afternoon when he saw a flash of light in the sky; an object then approached him and he saw it was egg shaped and silvery in color. It descended and just before it landed, legs “grew out of the bottom;” it set down in a cornfield 100 yards from the farmer. A port opened near the bottom and “some people” 4 or 5 feet tall; wearing one-piece metallic looking “flying suits,” got out and moved about in the corn for a while before getting back in. With a “slight roar” and a blue flame the UFO disappeared into the sky. Where it had landed the vegetation had been flattened as if by a whirlwind. Other “nests” were found in several Iowa farm towns about the same time.

Going to the window, she saw an object like an inverted soup dish hovering over the next-door building. In the top, which was a clear dome, she could see two human male figures wearing shiny blue, sating like suits; their heads were bare. One appeared to be controlling the object; the other had his back to the witness. The far figure turned toward the one seen from the back, said something, and laughed. After about a minute, the object shot straight up and then disappeared over the Wainuiomata Hill. Her sighting frightened the witness and she said nothing about it for five years.

As the figure approached more closely, the worker described seeing “fangs” like large canines, protruding from this figure’s mouth. The creature was also very hairy. He reported two very odd things, first the creature walked in a rather peculiar “side to side” manner as if it was shuffling down the track. Secondly it was carrying a big stick over its shoulder, with which it struck the railroad worker. After beating the witness it disappeared into the brush. Bruises were found on the witness.

Hearing more noises they walked towards a nearby hedgerow and came up to three gigantic humanoid figures standing in a triangle formation at the edge of the field. The beings were at least eight-foot tall with large domed heads, no apparent necks, wide shoulders, slim waists, and long dangling arms. The witnesses felt extremely cold and apprehensive. Suddenly the oppressive atmosphere changed and a beautiful fragrance accompanied by warm air, filled the group. The witnesses then walked down a dirt track and the beings that now appeared transparent glided parallel to them no more than 10 feet away. The figures then stopped near some bushes and again assumed their triangular position. The witnesses now felt calm and had a feeling of love towards the creatures and began walking towards them. One of the men even approached and apparently walked right through one of them. The beings suddenly vanished as vehicles approached the area. Later that night Mollie Carey visited the hill and became aware of a strong fragrance wafting in the warm air currents.

The witness had just returned to bed from the bathroom and was lying down when he looked towards the hall and heard a strange “pitter, patter” type sound. Suddenly a huge figure of a birdman-like being, rushed into the room making a loud screeching sound. It hovered and leaned over the witness staring straight at him. The witness was unable to move or scream, seemingly paralyzed. The witness could only see two huge round eyes. Moments later the creature vanished in plain sight.

The witness was apparently abducted again. She woke up in an examining table surrounded by four little gray men about four-foot tall. They were apparently being supervised by a taller more human like entity. They spent a lot of time examining her abdomen and pelvis area. They then inserted a long needle on a long tube that came down from the ceiling and into her stomach just above her navel area. Another device was planted under her chin. The witness had a miscarriage soon after this incident.

The third of Aarno Heinonen’s 1972 “contacts” occurred while he was riding his motor scooter on the Voikoski Road. He saw a small spherical cloud passing over, which then descended and stopped about 8 feet above the ground. From this “cloud” descended the same “space girl,” this time wearing a grown pants suit. She said, “Don’t be afraid, I’m your friend from another planet.” The woman had brown shoes and wore thin gloves. When she left she smile “in a beautiful way,” then pulled on one of the antennas on the small sphere, Heinonen felt a “whirlwind,” and the girl glide up into the globular cloud, which then ascended vertically very fast.

Hearing noises outside their farmhouse, 3 anonymous university students discovered, upon investigating, the presence of a figure “like a monk in a shroud” “hovering” about 15 feet from the door. Terry, who saw the figure first, called Phil and Greg, his co-tenants, and they all observed the figure—“a white thing like a monk’s robe and just this sort of void for a face”—floating about in a light arc. Greg made a sudden move, and the figure disappeared in a flash, which the other two thought shot toward Greg and “entered him” at chest height. Terry and Phil looked around for a moment and then saw Greg in a state of shock; unable to articulate other than to indicate he felt “sick inside.” They took him in the house. A short time later they went back outside to look around; Greg was still in his “possessed” state then a horse trotted up, one of Greg’s favorites. He threw his arm’s around the animal’s neck and the other two again saw the flash, this time leaving Greg and entering the horse, which reared and bolted. Greg was apparently all right. The investigator of this case had a UFO sighting on the campsite of the University of New England, only a few miles away, on the same day, the area was the site of increased UFO activity later in 1972 and into 1973.

His complexion was very white, and his baldhead bore high, pointed ears. The figure disappeared unaccountably from the room, whose temperature was abnormally high. The witness later suffered repeated headaches, and pains in his lumbar region.

Virgilio Gomez was driving along a lonely road when a man wearing a light green coverall that covered even his feet stopped him; he wore no gloves, and had a sort of watch on his wrist. The man identified himself as Freddy Miller, a well-known Dominican baseball player who had mysteriously disappeared more than 15 years previously; he said that a UFO had rescued him when his 2 companions drowned, “because of my knowledge of radio technology and my intelligence.” Nearby were 2 slender men 7-foot tall, dressed like Miller; they had complexions like Chinese and short chestnut colored hill. Miller also pointed out to Gomez the craft in which they had arrived; it was football shaped, the size of an automobile, with a bright “nickel plated” surface. The conversation continued for about 5 minutes, during which Miller told Gomez, that the humanoids were “supposedly from Venus.” Then Gomez was told to leave, because “they” were departing, and not to worry if his car wouldn’t function, because it would return to normal spontaneously. As he drove away Gomez saw the three men approaching the object.

An opening became visible and a large man like creature wearing a metallic suit stepped out. He carried in his hand a shiny wand like instrument, which he pointed at the witness. At this point the witness became confused and heard a loud voice, he then found himself inside the object and could see the being sitting at what appeared to be a command console, with a visual screen and display. He also saw a peculiar six-sided box like apparatus. Communication apparently took place and the witness was finally set free near a swamp.

Enrique Moreno was delivering documents in the Ika-Renault factory 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. Then, driving his motor runabout outside the plant, he briefly glimpsed “a sort of rainbow very near the ground,” and thought no further of it until he suddenly encountered a tall figure, glowing a bluish green, moving among some piles of chassis beside his route. As he approached within 30 yards, the figure swung around, in a stiff, mechanical way, to face him, and at the same time his engine faltered, and quit when he came opposite the being. This humanoid figure, strongly built and about 7.5 ft tall had eyes like yellow light bulbs, ears that rose above the skull in a point, a square chin, and a slit-like mouth. The face appeared pale green, but this may have been a reflection of the clothing, a one-piece tight fitting coverall of luminescent bluish-green, with a broad silvery belt. Moreno felt an intolerable hum in his ears and a sensation of heat and itching over his whole body; there was a smell of burning oil. His arms and legs were paralyzed. After 30 seconds of confrontation, his motorcycle shot off to the left on its own volition at high speed, and the witness returned to the Security Office without his conscious control. He arrived at 2330, but his wristwatch had stopped at 2313A, 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 later, two rectangular “footprints” 8 x 16 were found and the soil there was hot.

Luftolde Rodriguez, a truck driver making a delivery to the Ika Renault plant 4 and half hours after the Moreno encounter, had driven into the northeast sector of the plant to unload. He was driving a 1957 tip-truck Dodge. Having unloaded his cargo, he was just starting off when he noticed the whole area lit up. Hearing someone approaching from behind, he looked out the right side window and saw, in profile, the torso of a very tall figure pass close by. Only when this figure had moved into a position seen through the windshield could Rodriguez see its head. At that point the being stopped, did a right about turn, stiffly, and looked straight at the witness. He did another right turn, and moved slowly and awkwardly ahead, finally crossing diagonally to the left and disappearing behind some piles of frames. He had been in view from 60 to 90 seconds. The entity, dressed in a tight one-piece coverall of luminescent/blue green color, was similar to the one described by Moreno. He was fully 2.5 meters tall, as compared to the pile of frames he passed behind, and his head was bald, flattened at the rear, with the same long, narrow ears that rose to a point above the pate. His eyes were numerous circles with no eyelids or eyebrows. The nose was straight, and the mouth rudimentary. His complexion was very white. Legs and arms were extremely long, and he did not bend his legs as he walked; in his left hand he held a small white sphere the size of a billiard ball. He had a wide silver belt and large, square, silver boots. A number of physical effects occurred simultaneous with its appearance; the truck engine and lights died just as the figure strode by; these effects lasted until it was 25-30 meters distant. Rodriguez was immobilized in his seat; although he could follow the movement of the figure, he could not move either his hands or legs. He heard a humming noise, similar to bees, while the figure was in view. He sat there for several minutes after the figure vanished, not knowing what to do. Finally, some other workers approached to ask what was wrong and he told them what he’d seen. A search disclosed no sign of the intruder, nor where there any traces. Subsequent inquiries disclosed there were a number of independent UFO observations in the area during the evening of September 27-28.

A second encounter by Moreno occurred almost 24 hours after the first. After completing a chore in a department adjacent to the Teleprinting Section, he suddenly had the impression he was being watched. Looking out an open window on the plant grounds, he saw, facing him, and only 3 meters from the window, the same entity he had seen the night before. At the same moment, the fluorescent lighting in the office flashed on and off, and the whole area was permeated with a soft hum. The teleprinters all started up simultaneously and, filled with an excess of dread, Moreno fled towards the Security Office, shouting for someone to come and corroborate the entity’s presence. One of the guards had to subdue him physically and warned him of any further outbreaks. They assured him that they would not report this latest incident, indicating clearly that they believed he was hallucinating.

Time: night
A man named Ed Foley was driving between Phoenix and Tucson when he encountered a circular UFO and a robot like “figure or object” that emerged from it and hit him with a beam of light. At that point Foley experienced “an alteration of consciousness” as though he had left his physical body; he “mentally” entered the object, and was able to communicate telepathically with the beings on board. (Beings not described). The thrust of the information gleaned from these occupants was that they had needed to resort of “artificial replenishment” of an “essence of life” for their survival. These “juices” they obtained from the simpler forms of life as well as from living animals, excluding man. “They take blood and vital fluids from some glands of various animals…They are not concerned about the flesh and leave it intact,” avoiding humans as much as possible in their “harvesting” of fluid substances.”

Apparently the humanoids came back and took the witness to a room with a table. There where three humanoids in the room. One looked like a doctor and was apparently in charge; he was a little taller than the other two who appeared to be assistants. The witness at this point was hysterical and began yelling for his dad, then a person resembling his father entered the room, and he calmed down. They rolled him to his side and apparently performed some kind of procedure behind his left ear. The witness believes it was an implant that was inserted there. The alien resembling his dad then told him not to touch the back of his ear until the morning. The witness soon found himself back in bed without any more recollections.

Coccioli was seated on an adjustable chair and they took from him blood and semen samples. He could see unrecognizable apparatus and instruments. He took as a souvenir a rock, which proved to be iron pyrites. Then he lost consciousness again, and next found himself at home, with the rock in his hand; 40 minutes had passed. Subsequently the finger on his left hand form which blood had been drawn swelled up at intervals; he also experienced slight pains in the nape of his neck.

Airman First Class Steven Briggs and Airman Dennis Hillsgeck were instructed to check the tactical air navigational facility located eight miles east of McChord Air Force Base. Upon their arrival, they opened the locked fence surrounding the TACAN facility and entered the compound. Once inside, they opened the building and began to conduct a systems check of the equipment. At approximately 1400, Briggs heard a strange sound outside the building. To Briggs it sounded like a high pitch engine. He exited the building to investigate the sound. Once outside, he observed a saucer shaped object directly above the building. Briggs watched as the object landed just south of the compound. Startled, Briggs entered the building and summoned Hillsgeck. Once outside, both men observed two “creatures” walking towards the fence. Briggs returned to the building and telephoned the base security police. He yelled that they needed help at the TACAN site because “intruders” were attempting to enter the facility. Sgt Holmes at the security desk dispatched Sgt Dwight Reid and AIC Michael Tash to the scene. After 17 minutes they arrived at the site and observed Briggs and Hillsgeck standing near their government vehicle. Both appeared to be in a daze. Neither could speak. An ambulance was summoned. Hillsgeck appeared to have been burnt around the face. Tash walked around the area and found marks in the soft dirt. Suddenly Reid yelled to Tash that an object as directly over his head. A saucer shaped object was hovering just above the facility. Sgt Reid attempted to communicate to the security police desk, but the radio did not work. Reid and Tash then retrieved Briggs and Hillsgeck and drove from the scene. One mile from the site he was able to communicate with the security police, requesting assistance and declaring a “Covered Wagon” (a high security violation alert). Four additional security officers arrived, including Sgt Darren Alexander and his dog “Champ” Approximately 400 yards south of the site, Sgt Alexander was alerted by his dog to two creatures standing near a remote power station. Sgt Alexander yelled for the creatures to stand and raise their hands. Both creatures the moved towards Alexander, who noticed that one of the creatures was holding an object, which he thought was a weapon. Sgt Alexander then fired six rounds form his revolver. After firing the shots, Alexander returned to his vehicle and radioed that he had fired at the creatures. Soon a security alert team arrived. They conducted a search of the area and observed the saucer shaped object sitting on the ground, directly east of the power station. They circled the object and called for a supervisor, a Captain Henry Stone. As Stone walked toward the object, it flew off in an easterly direction and was out of sight in a few seconds.

The area was well lit and the grass had been recently cut. Soon they noticed that towards the perimeter of the property where the vegetation was a little higher, something was moving very rapidly above the ground at lighting speed. It seemed to be moving back & forth over the area. Curious, the men got into their vehicle and decide to drive towards it in order to see what it was. As they approached the location the vehicle headlights suddenly illuminated a bizarre figure that seemed to have been caught off guard by the lights. The stunned men described the figure as about 4 ft tall, very thing, with long thin legs that seemed to end in claws, a long thick tail that the creature appeared to use as a “third leg” in order to support itself. It also had long thin arms with long claw-like fingers. It had a large oval shaped head with huge bulging eyes. The creature’s skin appeared to be scaly, and reptilian in nature. The creature stood there briefly, staring at the men then after a few moments it shot away into the brush at incredible speed and disappeared from sight.

Thinking it was some hunters looking for a stray dog, he used his ultrasound whistle in order to assist. Suddenly a powerful beam of white light shone on the witness. He threw himself on the ground and could hear the beam emitting a sizzling sound. After yelling to turn to beam off, the witness fired at the light. There was an explosion accompanied by bright sparks. Three more beams of light came on and the witness fired at them with the same results. Suddenly he saw three of the short men running towards him using peculiar jumping motions. He shot at one of them; it stopped and was apparently then assisted and taken away by the other two. The witness then fired at the gray object, and heard a metallic ricocheting sound. A loud whistling sound was then heard while the gray object began lifting up from the ground. The object had a bright red bluish halo completely encircling it. It then shot away at very high speed. A strange metallic fragment was reportedly found at the site.

Driving home from her grandmother’s at Bodega Bay, to Zamora, with her two younger sisters, Judy Kendall, 28, expected to be home at approximately 2000. She in fact got home about midnight, finding her parents alarmed over her lateness. She recalled having crossed over Cache Creek Bridge about 2000, and then crossing over it a second time, feeling very tired and barely able to keep her eyes open. Under hypnotic regression, she described feeling an extreme coldness, and of a void around the car; she believed she was floated out of the car and awakened in a round room encircled with windows through which she saw stars. She was on a hard cold surface, and her head seemed to be restrained at times, prohibiting movement. She was able to observe, with restraints removed, two-bucket seats facing a console type instrument panel with a gear like shift; and on her left a table with instruments and a black box. The feeling of cold was intense. Present were five entities of frightening appearance; with insect like eyes and a pale, or white translucent skin through which was visible a number of red veins. They wore an outfit with a turtleneck top that apparently concealed the lower portion of their faces. She is told that no harm will come to her but the voice does not appear to be spoken normally, sounding more like it came through a megaphone. Three other entities are dressed in similar outfits but apparently lack the bug like eyes of the first. The fifth is an entirely human appearing woman with blue eyes and long black hair, who speaks to her normally, and calms her. She was given an examination, which, she believes, included catheterization; she felt “shaky” experienced pain in her head, and a pain in her side. At times she experienced some difficulty in breathing. She expressed concern about her sisters, one of whom she believed she heard calling out to her in distress. She was not certain that both sisters were brought on board with her. Her feet were examined closely and at one point during the examination, one hand, or arm, was restrained so that she could not move it. The sensation of cold was relieved briefly several times, but severe headaches persisted throughout. Finally a large “scanning” device was placed over her face, and she was unable to see; it gave off a motor sound and when removed, she was again able to see. She was then carried out of the room and next thing she recalled was being “thrown” into the driver’s seat of the car, and her sister was suddenly in the seat next to her. She felt very tired and recalled crossing the bridge for the second time, after which she and her sisters proceeded straight home, arriving four hours later than expected.

Alfonso Rey was watching TV when the picture stopped; as he got up to adjust it, he saw a man seated in an armchair in the opposite end of the room; he wore a one-piece coverall of a blue green color, whose fabric appeared metallic, with a black belt and a helmet like those formerly worn by airmen, and with short boots. On the belt was a small box or device. He stood up, at least 6.5 ft tall, and Rey asked him what he wanted; he merely held his hand out, which felt cold and abnormally soft, “like foam rubber,” Rey could not described the features save for the eyes, “which seemed to emit a silvery light.” They both sat down again; Rey now began to feel a condition of unusual well-being. He went into the kitchen, followed by the stranger, where he noticed that the refrigerator’s motor was not running normally; he also noticed that his visitor seemed to “walk on air.” Rey offered him a glass of water, which he declined. Then the man pressed buttons on his belt apparatus, causing an amber-colored light to come on; the being then went to the kitchen door and, looking up at the sky, pressed other buttons; he then walked out into the yard, where he vanished in thin air, leaving no trace. Later that afternoon, around 1620, other people reported seeing a similar “stranger” in a bar on the corner of Calle Alsina and Calle Pringles, in Tres Arroyos. Descriptions by several witnesses matched those provided by Rey. They said the “stranger” went into the bathroom and did not emerge. No further details are available.

A 9-year old boy, Mario Mercier, was alone on an ice skating rink on a sunny day when he observed a spherical white “cloud” fall rapidly from the sky, and come to rest beside the extension of his house, 700 ft away. Out of this “cloud,” bout 7 ft in diameter, stepped 3 chunky, square shouldered little men 4 ft tall, wearing black clothing & black square helmets. One carried a little square black “kettle,” which he proceeded to fill with snow. Then he walked to the Mercier’s chicken house, and was just about to open its door when the boy cried out. He turned toward the boy, who tried to hide himself in a hockey net. Then he went back, and with one of the others, was seen to “climb” back into the “cloud,” which then rose swiftly vertically. Left on the ground, & seen by other members of the family, were square tracks in the snow, and a 10″ circle of black soot where the grass was burned. It was 2 years before the grass grew again.

One of the lighthouse keeping crew on the Isla De Lobos observed a landed object, copper colored and surrounded by a circle of multicolored lights that constantly lighted up & went out. He ran to get his revolver, and returned to see at a distance of 90-100 ft three silhouetted figures of normal height. The figures were wearing black tight fitting diver’s outfits. He pointed the gun at them, but then found himself paralyzed. The men went back into the UFO and it took off silently, emitting an intense white light. The Uruguayan Air Force investigated the case.

The object appeared to land among some nearby birch trees. The frightened witness ran to his neighbor’s house. Two hours later while walking back home he encountered a very strong wind at the same spot where he first saw the object. The wind became stronger and the witness sees a female humanoid dressed in shiny yellow clothing approaching from some nearby trees. The being seemed to float over the ground as a bright beam of light shoots out of her shoes. She tells the witness not to be afraid. During this incident the witness is given a peculiar egg shaped stone.

Noting that his TV was experiencing interference, Fritz Abbehusen, 65, went out on the porch and saw a round luminous object “of enormous dimensions” pass over and land on a hillock about 5 km away. Through binoculars he could see that it was not on the ground, but floating a few yards above it. Its lower part was “fluorescent” color, its upper part, in which a row of little windows was visible, luminous orange red. From this object there presently separated 3 pairs of little blinking lights, one of which came toward the Abbehusen house. Mr. Abbehusen’s wife, Margarita, together with their servant Valdeta Da Lima, went to the back of the house, where they could see the lights approaching. In about 15 minutes there arrived within 50 yards of the back of the house two small figures that “looked like boys of 13 or 14, very thin. They wore a kind of one-piece suit of whitish or gray color. They kept their elbows close to the body when walking; they walked as if on tiptoe, raising their knees exaggeratedly at each step.” The observers could not see their faces, nor say whether they were wearing helmets. The 2 women fled into the house, calling out for Mr. Abbehusen, but when he came out, the beings had disappeared. The UFO remained until around midnight; at one time it emitted a beam that set the brush on fire.

Farmer Veikko Kivioja was returning home after a visit to his neighbor, Seppo Oja and after driving some one and a half kilometers on a winding forest road he suddenly after taking a turn saw three bright lights on the left side of the road. He thought it was another car and stopped. Then he saw that three human like creatures who walked over the road towards the logging opening on the other side of the road emitted the bright lights. Kivioja could see that they had a round head, their facial features were not visible but he could also see wing-like arms resting on their hips. The legs could be seen clearly and they seem to walk softly and with ease. Kivioja now decided to return to his neighbor’s home in order to obtain additional witnesses. He first drove ahead a bit so he could maneuver his car and turn around and when doing so the headlights shone on the creatures. He noticed that these totally ignored him. Upon reaching his neighbor’s house he honked to horn in order to arouse him. The neighbor, Seppo Oja agreed to follow Kivioja although he did not quite believe his story. But when they reached the logging opening the three creatures were still there, now on their way to a small hill about 100 meters away. Both men could see a spherical glow totally surrounding the three creatures, which moved at the same time the humanoids did. The light was so bright that the trees around them could be clearly seen. After 10mins the light faded out and the men went outside to see if they could find any traces on the soft surface of the road, but nothing was found. Some 5 hours after this encounter a dairy worker was driving his tractor on another road some 10 km from the logging opening when he suddenly observed a very bright light coming from the right side of the road some 100 meters away. It turned out to be an object two meters in diameter, emitting a bright green light, which flew one meter above the ground at walking speed, evading easily the obstacles on its way. The dairy farmer, Heimo Mattila drove his tractor as fast as he could and passed the object just before it flew over the road. As he drove away he could see it in his rearview mirror.

Ventura Maceiras, 73-year old gaucho, was sitting near his shack with his dog and cat, drinking mate, when his transistor radio failed. He then heard a loud humming noise, “like angry bees,” and looked up to see an object 70 to 80 feet in diameter hovering overhead some 10-12 meters over a grove of eucalyptus trees, emitting a powerful light. Around this object, which was at first red-orange and then became purple, an enormous “wheel” was spinning. In its upper portion he could see a spherical cabin with two windows, and in one window was visible from the waist upwards a figure wearing dark gray clothing made of inflated “rolls,” joined together, similar to our astronaut’s space suits. On this being’s head was a helmet with a transparent visor and a tube that ran to a box on his back. With a shower of sparks, the UFO tilted toward Maceiras, and he could now see a second occupant, with identical features and clothing. Their eyes were slanted, their faces very flat, and their mouths merely slit like lines. Behind them he could see a small flag or insignia showing against a blue background a crowned seahorse followed by symbols resembling “S C Y.” There was also a long panel bearing “a lot of instruments and clocks.” Then a powerful flash of light came from the underpart, completely enveloping the cat, and temporarily blinding the witness. The humming grew louder, and the object became blue-green, then moved away, sinking to a height of only 12-20 feet above the ground. It moved off toward the main road, leaving a strong odor like “sulfur or arnica.” Maceiras was not frightened—in fact he called out to the occupants of the object to come down and share his mate. After the encounter, his cat disappeared, to return only after 48 hours, her back still showing marks of burns; she now shunned the site of her misfortune. Tops of the eucalyptus trees at the site were scorched. Maceiras experienced severe physiological after effects; diarrhea, nausea, loss of hair, and severe headaches, all lasting about two weeks. He also had some trouble in speaking, and his eyes watered for a few days. Six weeks after the event, he was feeling all the stronger for it, and in fact was rejuvenated; he began cutting a new set of teeth in his upper gums. These effects were to continue.

Radio technician Leopoldo N, was exploring an isolated mountainous area when he saw a gray metallic disc shaped object apparently made out of a light plastic-like material and about 3 meters in height land nearby. Three humanoids about 1.50m in height with huge round eyes, large heads and holes for ears emerged from the object. The humanoids approached the paralyzed witness, apparently floating just above the ground and communicated with him via telepathy. At this point the witness felt an incredible sense of tranquility. He was told by the humanoids to be calm since their only aim was peace. He was apparently given a mental formula on the alien’s craft internal propulsion system. However he could not remember much of it.
