1973 HUMANOID SIGHTING REPORTS Compiled by Albert Rosales

1973 was indeed a landmark year as far as UFOs and alien encounters are concerned. After 4 relatively slow years 69-72, 1973 exploded into the world heralding the arrival of The High-Strangeness era of UFOS and related phenomena. The autumn humanoid wave described by Webb was only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Besides the almost 200 humanoid encounters (reported) there were literally thousands of well documented CE1’s CE2’s, radar visuals, aircraft, daylight discs, etc. It was the end of the Vietnam era, the beginning of the end for Nixon and the start of the weird decade. 1973 through 1979 can only be rivaled by that unforgettable French wave of 1954. 1973 brought us, Hickson and Parker, the Turin Airport intrusions, the Northwest Cape incident that possibly created a high state of military alertness for all worldwide US forces. It was the midst of the Yom Kippur war, the world was indeed at the brink, and more was yet to come.

The witness a supervisor at a local rubber factory was called outside by one of his men who had been smoking a cigarette. Once outside the man pointed up and to the left. They both saw some type of craft moving very slowly from the northwest to the southeast. There were a number of slanted downward windows in the craft. They could see several figures moving about and some were apparently looking down out of the windows. The background behind the figures was red, making the figure look like silhouettes. The strange thing about the craft was the rather bobbing motion it had while moving. They watched the object for about 10 minutes until the craft drifted out of sight.

Location. Near Norton Air Force Base, California
Date: 1973
Time: unknown
The witness was employed by the Air Force as a photographer. One day he received unexpected news that his security clearance had been upgraded. A few weeks later, he and another military photographer were flown for a temporary duty assignment to Norton Air Force base. As they landed they were taken on a two-hour drive inside an Air Force vehicle with blacked out windows. They finally arrived at their destination, which turned out to be inside an underground installation. They were ordered to disrobe and given white smocks to wear. The main witness was taken to a room, which contained a disc shaped craft suspended in a heavy net hanging from a large crane. The disc was about 30 feet in diameter and had a small opening on the side. The witness was lifted up to the opening and put inside. He was shocked to see that the inside looked to be about 10 times the size of the outside. Disoriented he poked his head back outside to check the size which appeared to be about 35 ft in diameter only. He continued to photograph the inside of the disc and was later taken to photograph actual alien bodies dressed in blue jumpsuits. At that point, he became ill and the other photographer was called in to complete the assignment.

A man working on his ham radio equipment received a strange message. After hearing peculiar static a metallic voice speaking in Italian communicated with him. He was told to maintain the communication a secret. Later he was given instructions to go to a wooded area near his home. At the rendezvous site he encountered a landed metallic circular object. Next to the craft stood three normal looking men, the men wore “asbestos” type suits and helmets with antennae. The beings promised to return but never did.

The two witnesses were driving when they sighted two hovering craft and experienced a time lapse. Under hypnosis one of the witnesses remembered lying on an examination table surrounded by electronic equipment. Several undescribed beings connected her to this equipment and assured her that it was going to be a painless examination. Later both witnesses found themselves sitting side by side on two chairs completely silent. They were then suddenly returned to their vehicle without any memory of the event.

Richard Kilburn was returning home along a remote road when he suddenly experienced a memory lapse. He only had fragmentary memories of an event. Under hypnosis he recalled seeing two lights descend from the sky and land nearby, his vehicle suddenly veered off the road and stopped. He got out of the vehicle and heard a sound, he then saw four or five humanoids coming over a nearby fence and approach him. The beings were very short and thin, hairless with large heads shaped like inverted teardrops, large black walnut shaped eyes, small noses, slit mouths, no ears and white putty like skin. They had long tube like fingers and wore black tight fitting suits and gloves and were clumsy when they moved. One that seemed to be the leader gave directions by gestures while another being began digging a hole. The witness was seized by a clamp like device and taken to a luminous white egg shaped craft sitting on a platform of girders and making a humming sound. He was escorted up a tube like ramp into the object and entered a luminous white domed room and next found himself on a table wearing only a diaper like cloth. A device came down from the ceiling and a needle like device ran along his back. He was then given an extensive physical examination by several of the beings, with different devices. He later lost consciousness and found himself driving home in his vehicle.

Mike Shea was driving toward Olney to meet a friend when about 15 minutes outside of Baltimore he noticed a beam of light strike a barn 150 feet from his car. He then saw a huge hovering object with a ring of alternating red & yellow lights. The object was totally silent. When the beam of light shut off Shea became fearful. He felt something coming up behind him. Suddenly he saw the object overhead and felt an electric current running down his spine. The next thing he knew he was feeling quite relaxed and was approaching his destination. He had somehow lost two hours of time. Years later under hypnotic regression he remembered seeing four figures standing at the side of the road. He then realized the figures were creatures dressed in a black kind of plastic armor. They had black faces and appeared to be wearing helmets with a line down the middle that came to a point. The beings looked like huge grasshoppers with long arms and bowed legs. Three of the creatures were large. The fourth one was small and wore a black silky suit with a zipper up the front, somehow this being seemed “ancient” to the witness. He then saw a large shiny craft hovering nearby emitting a low whirring sound and a smaller craft on the ground. Eventually he was taken inside one of the crafts, put on a table, and examined. Various organic samples were collected from his body.

Two young sisters had gone to the nearby river to fetch some buckets of water. The younger sister became tired and drifted off to sleep. At that point the older sister saw a figure approaching from a nearby path. She described the figure as a humanoid female, wearing a white tunic, with long jet-black hair. It carried something in her hand resembling a lantern or torch. The terrified girl stood watching as the figure approached her. As it got to within 20 feet it suddenly disappeared in plain sight. The girl then woke her younger sister and both went back home.

The 44-year old witness awoke to see a motionless figure standing in his bedroom. It was wearing a “bulky” one-piece matte silver suit that was joined to a round helmet with a rectangular faceplate of smoky color, so that the face was not visible. The height of the figure was about 6-foot. After about 5 seconds it turned its head to the right to face the witness; then it suddenly disappeared.

While asleep with his wife in bed, Allen C Smith “dreamed” he was on a “strange ship” of some kind. He was lying on a table and there, two entities nearby, one of which was bending over him, and passing a small rod-like instrument over his stomach and chest. The figure’s face was ‘silvery” with no facial features, appearing like a mask of metal. Without speaking, Smith “heard” him tell the others “this one has some kind of malady.” Smith looked around and “knew” that the object he was on was “run” by “magnetic electrical force, coming from rods sticking in a bunch of crystals or a crystal like substance nearby.” When he awoke, he was lying on the carpet in the living room. He had shaved before retiring, but had what appeared to be two days growth of beard on his face.

In a dream like state the witness saw an egg shaped object land on thick legs. A door slid open and a ladder descended. Two beings stepped out, one a humanoid with a big head and no hair, green eyes and a gray face; the other was human with blonde hair. She was unable to move as the beings approached, but she felt no fear or anxiety. The beings took her inside the craft, but she remembered nothing except computers and the end of the experience, when the door opened again and she went down the ladder, then the object took off at high speed.

Concerned they decided to walk in the middle of the road; slowly they walked passed the alleyway. Suddenly they noticed two bright red circles that came closer, they then realized it was his eyes. They both began to run when the boyfriend felt something strike his back. He turned around and lying on the floor was a pitchfork type tool, like a hayfork. They picked it up and ran home later contacting the police. Other witnesses came forward reporting a strange prowler described as very tall, 6’ 6″ at least, dressed in black, with a black cape with burning red eyes. Around the same time an old woman reported seeing a figure “jumping” across the rooftops. She watched him take tremendous leaps of about 20 or 30 ft, this frightened her.

After arguing with family members and his sister’s boyfriend the witness, Zenon Carlos Rios decided to go up to the rooftop and sleep there for the night. As he lay on the hard concrete, almost at the brink of falling asleep, he suddenly heard a long whistle that startled him awake. He looked up and saw a large blue craft, two meters above him that seemed to be about to fall on him. The craft was egg-shaped with blue, black and white lights. There was a huge glass paned window going from one side to the other and inside he could see two human like figures sitting at a control panel. The two humanoids wore black outfits and had very pale features, and short white curly hair. The witness was unable to move and as the bottom of the craft was about to strike him, a door opened. Then a powerful blast of air sucked him inside the object. Inside he noticed a strong odor resembling propane gas, he immediately lost consciousness. His next memory was waking up on the terrace feeling great pain throughout his body. With great difficulty he walked downstairs and was stunned to learn that he had been gone for 3 days. He could not remember what happened during those three days.

The witness was asleep at home when she was apparently abducted. She found herself lying on a sterile looking aluminum like table, in a circular room. The room was cold and it had three other tables and seating. Two types of beings were present. One type was tall with an elongated head, no mouth or nose and set back ears. They wore a silvery suit and moved normally. The other type was shorter with elongated heads and seemed to move clumsily. The beings in the silvery suits appeared in control of the smaller ones. She saw other humans onboard, including her sister. They seemed to be in a trance and were seated on seats attached to the wall. The beings did not communicate with her but seemed to communicate with each other from their throats using cricket type sounds. The beings examined her apparently doing something to her stomach.

Rob Carlson had gone to the river in Whitmore Village with his friends to catch catfish. They laid traps in the river for about an hour, intending to come back in the morning to gather up the fish. As they were busy putting in their traps, they heard a blood-curling scream. It sounded at first like a wild man screaming in the bushes right next to them. In a state of panic the witnesses began to run. As they got to the top of the hill, running down a little trail, they came to a curve in the path. As they entered the curve, they all stopped dead in their tracks. An 8-foot tall man was walking down the trail, heading right for them. He was naked except for a cloth around his waist. They turned and ran back to the river. As he stumbled down the side of the embankment, a giant woman stepped out from behind a tree. She must have been at least seven feet tall. Turning downriver they ran until they came out of the ravine safely. Giant footprints were found at the site.

Time: late night
Tom Campbell and his fellow musicians on leaving Jordan had a nighttime encounter. He had no recollection of the events until years later. The four musicians had just finished a gig and were busy packing their gear into the van when a stranger whom they had not noticed at the party approached and asked for a lift home. They agreed to let him accompany them. Finally loading the last of the instruments on board, all climbed in and set off for home. For some unexplainable reason they took a service road that bordered the Queen Elizabeth Highway on the north and Lake Ontario on the south. Close to Charles Paley Park the driver saw lights up ahead and thought that there had probably been an accident. Upon stopping, those in the rear, including Tom were curious as to what had happened. To which the driver replied, “I think you had better take a look at this.” Upon doing so they were astonished to see a saucer sitting in the middle of the road. Attempting to turn around the driver found that despite his very best efforts, he couldn’t turn. Even worse the van appeared to be floating sideways towards the saucer. The drummer, who was in the passenger seat up front, suggested to the driver putting his foot on the brake. Tom noticed that there appeared to be no road, vehicle contact. The van came to a halt within thirty feet of the craft. Soon they saw what appeared to be small figures getting out of the craft. The next thing that was heard was the door handle on the driver’s side rattling. Tom could hear footsteps moving down alongside the van to the rear door. At the same time he saw the head of the alien pass the side window. It had white cream-colored skin with black eyes. Suddenly the mysterious hitchhiker leant forward and opened it. When he did so the occupants saw four aliens looking in. One promptly climbed in, yet his head did not reach the ceiling of the van. In the dim light his features were not very clear. It was apparent he had no ears, and a small mouth. His facial muscle showed concern, probably because Tom was contemplating attacking them, but was unable to move. The alien telepathically informed him that his hostile thoughts made him concerned for the safety of his crew. That it was not their intention to harm the band members and their mission was one of peace. They wanted to examine three members of the group. At that point the alien “captain” turned around and caught his foot in the tripod of the snare drum, which promptly rolled out onto the road. One of the crewmembers picked it up and returned it to the van. Three of the band members and the aliens passed down the side of the van and entered the saucer through an egg-shaped doorway, steps were visible and a hallway further on the curve to the left. Entering the craft they saw three chrome cots on wheels. At which point they were asked to undress and then sit on the cots. Soon Tom saw one of the little humanoids wheeling a cart over towards him with what looked like a tray of instruments on it. Some looked like dental probes, and lights. Soon the three captives were taken into separate rooms in which the aliens collected different body samples. Later the three band members were escorted to the door and the bass player was sent. Later getting into the van everyone sat like zombies and also the stranger that had hitchhiked a ride with was gone. Later they drove home. Most of their memories were retrieved years later under hypnosis.

Several witnesses returning from their Christmas vacation were driving an old Valiant car and had just passed the Sussex Inlet turn off when they noticed an approaching light ahead. The object, perceived as a bright light, appeared to reverse direction and began to travel alongside the car. The large object maintained a parallel course to the vehicle for the next 24 kilometers. The object was described as a large disc shaped craft with what appeared to be lighted windows along its length. There appeared to be a searchlight beam that rotated around the bottom of the object. At least one of the witnesses, an army officer, who was very close to the craft, reported seeing figures at the windows of the object.

An unidentified youth, driving on Route 18 approximately 13 miles south of Gaffney, saw a domed UFO sitting on the highway ahead, supported by three legs and flashing various colored lights. Thinking at first it was an accident, he slowed his car. Standing around the object were about a dozen “men” of normal height, dressed in white coveralls; they wore gloves, and their heads were bare. Each had “jet-black” hair and faces “the color of Caucasians.” On the uniforms were belts, buckles and buttons and the beings stood in place as the car approached, those facing another direction turning slowly to observe the witness car. They appeared to the witness to be seen through something similar to invisible waves of heat, appearing to “sort of wiggle like a worm.” The lights on the object were all colors and the object itself glowed a darkish yellow, the color of an incandescent bulb. On a side away from the witness he observed what appeared to be stairs that seemed to be affixed to a door that swung downward. He said he would have driven under the object had the men not been standing in the spot; the object was large enough to span the highway so that no car could have passed around it. The youth suddenly became frightened and quickly turned onto a secondary road just this side of the object, and sped away. A later visit to the site disclosed no traces of the object’s landing.

Ventura Maceiras had a second encounter with two entities; one of the two approached the witness, smiling, and greeted him by placing his left hand on his breast. There followed an exchange of communication telepathically in which Maceiras learned the name of his visitor, “Arnoil,” and his companion, “Ninquier.” They came from the planet “Prunio,” which belongs to the empire of “Lobernia,” its major city was ‘Arlenquistan,” and they were now in their 14,320th year. The witness was shown a book illustrating a surgical operation; three figures resembling globes that contained cancer viruses; and he was instructed on how cancer could be cured. Our earth-moon system was called “Cleotor.” The entities made their pitch for goodwill and disclosed numerous other items of interest. They were approximately 1.75 cm tall, had small round ears, “slit eyes,” a small, flattened nose, and short fine hair. Before they left they warned Maceiras of impending major seismic disturbances. It was not reported if they arrived or left in a UFO.

Time: 2150
While driving from Iron Knob to Kimba on Route One, Brian Hunt and his passenger, Miss Sharon Kinckler, observed a red light in a clearing to the right of the road. As they passed by, the two observed a red orange lighted area of rectangular shape, about 10 feet high by 5 feet wide, in which could be seen a sharply defined figure of what appeared to be a man in a white spacesuit. The figure was of normal size and appeared to be of ordinary shape, and was suspended in the lighted area some 2-3″ above the ground, and floated in the middle of the lighted area some 2-3 feet above the base. Mr. Hunt called the object and figure to his companion’s attention as he accelerated past the scene, and Miss Kinckler, upon turning in her seat, said the orange glow seemed to spread across the entire highway behind them. When they arrived at Miss Kinckler’s home in Kimba, the local police were called and a constable accompanied them back to the site. No traces were found. Two other independent witnesses were subsequently located; Mr. Allen Degnor, a Ceduna truck driver who passed by the same area at 2200 and described essentially the same phenomenon; and Mr. Max Inglis, who had passed Brian and Sharon just before they came to the site.

As they were flying a DC-8 charter cargo plane from St. Louis, Missouri, to Dallas, Texas, two anonymous pilots observed an object over southeast Oklahoma. They had just commenced a gradual descent from 21,000 feet in the vicinity of McAlester when the object appeared off to their right, approximately 5000 feet away, and moving in the same direction. It gave off a strange orange light and abruptly rose straight up like an elevator, then made a right angle turn in the direction of the DC-8 and approached at incredible speed, taking a position about 300 yards away, slightly above them. It was disc shaped, with a clear dome on top, and continued to pace the airliner in the new position. The pilot tried to raise its air traffic controller by radio with no success. The moonlight reflected off the silvery sides of the object, which had two sets of raised fins along its trailing edge; it appeared to be about 75 feet long and 40 feet wide. The pilot switched on his radar and immediately picked up its echo on the scope; almost instantaneously the object began a series of complex maneuvers and took up a new position just below the leading edge of their left wing. It dropped to a position 300 feet below the aircraft and the two pilots were able to see two, perhaps three, indistinct and shadowy figures inside the dome; the object then moved out and ahead of the plane, executed several more maneuvers, and disappeared into the night.

Getting out of bed she looked out the window and saw a strange craft hovering over the utility wires. It had several lighted portholes and Edith thought she could see people or “objects” inside. It was making a quiet swooshing sound. It had an umbrella like protrusion on top. The witness was adamant that the craft was not a helicopter.

On the night prior to this experience, Mrs Maureen Puddy “heard” a voice calling her name. Next morning she perceived a “message” telling her to return to the site of her 1972 encounter. She contacted two investigators of the Victorian UFO group and drove with them to the site. On route she briefly “saw” a man sitting in the front seat of the car; her passengers did not see the figure. As she approached the spot of her earlier encounter, she saw the same figure standing outside the car. The others saw nothing. The figure was normal sized, wearing a white ski suit-type of coverall tucked in at the wrists and covering the feet. He had long blond hair. He beckoned to Mrs Puddy, but she did not respond; instead, she appeared to lose consciousness, although she described what she was seeing to the two passengers of the car; she was in a round room lit by an unknown source; the figure appeared in the room with her, and the room was shaped like a large mushroom with a stem at the bottom and a hemispherical dome on top. It appeared to have an inner hemisphere that appeared to be wobbling, and had what looked like hieroglyphics on it. The figure told her to describe what she saw, which she did; her companions heard this description but still saw nothing themselves. She saw no doors or windows in the room and began to get frightened; she started to cry and ‘woke up” with tears in her eyes, but she could recall nothing of what happened in this trance-like stat, or what she just described to the others. About a week later she was driving with her son, seated in the front passenger seat. The same “man” again appeared, this time sitting between them. Apparently her son did not see him. His presence was accompanied by an abrupt change in the weather, which had been rainy and low visibility; it suddenly cleared, and Mrs Puddy could see for miles. The figure vanished abruptly, and the rainy conditions again prevailed.

Helene, 14, was driving the family snowmobile near McWaters, with her 2 brothers and 7 teen aged friends, all on snowmobiles, when a giant “headlight” rose from behind them and passed over the group, illuminating the whole landscape. After it had gone, all the boys went off on a race, leaving Helene behind. The brilliant light source reappeared and flew back over her; she estimated it as 60 ft in diameter. Suddenly its light went out. Helen thought it must be a plane that had crashed somewhere behind her. She turned around and went back about 500 ft, then got off and walked toward a very large dark bulk which she thought she could make out among the trees. She was within perhaps 50 ft of it when a small, cold hand coming from over her shoulder seized her by the chin and tried to drag her backwards. Thinking it must be her younger brother playing a joke, she broke free and pushed her attacker back so that he fell sitting into the snow. Turning to face him, she realized that it was a childlike figure smaller than her 13-year old brother. She ran back to the snowmobile and got a flashlight, turning it on the person, who was now slowly walking toward her. She saw a being about 45″ tall, clad in dark, close fitting clothing with a “plated” surface, and wearing a helmet that covered his head down to the chin. Around his face the rim of a “visor”, reflected the light, and his enormous eyes also shone brightly in the light, like those of a cat. He was advancing with difficulty, perhaps because of the snow. Terrified, Helene dropped the flashlight, ran to the snowmobile, and fled on it. She was joined by the other snowmobiles, which were returning. Her left arm was paralyzed. She was taken to a doctor at Rouyn, who gave her a sedative. The next day several people went to the place, where they found a large patch of snow melted down to the ground, 50ft in diameter and shaped like a donut. Beside it were the tracks of 2 small bipeds, a few yards away from each other; the tracks were short and broad with a large protruding great toe.

Cirila Montero Lagunes reported that her 3-year old son Ramiro had wandered off one day in March and returned six days later, with a story of having been found by five “little men” (Chaneques) and taken to a cave where they fed him “sweet food” and played with him. He was located from information by a neighbor boy who said the Chaneques had told him where the boy could be found. The boy said he slept in the cave and was looked after by the gnomes, one of who was with him at all times. The hillside below the cave was found to be extremely dense with spine bearing shrubs, and access to it would have been difficult for such a small boy; the adults had to cut a path to the cave’s entrance to reach it. It was approximately 9 miles form his home. No connection with UFOs is mentioned.

Olga Adler was in bed suffering from “chronic” back pain, her eyes were closed when the room suddenly became bright. She was suddenly paralyzed. She then perceived a figure in a long, light brown robe, resembling a monk’s habit, with the hood pulled up and rendering the face in deep shadows. The figure entered through a closed door and floated across the room. The figure held in his arms what looked like a heavy metal cylinder, which he placed on the witness back as she lay on her side, and pressed down. With contact of the cylinder on the witness back, she could feel comfortable warmth penetrating her body and felt surrounded by a tingling sensation like electricity. The figure held the cylinder there for at least five minutes. It then departed through the closed door and Adler fell asleep. Upon awakening, Adler was astounded to discover that her backache was gone.

A local member of a UFO club had gone out into an isolated area in an attempt to signal UFO’s with a flashlight. Suddenly he saw an approaching bright disc shaped object that leveled off and landed very close to the witness. It was a 30-meter metallic disc. A hatch opened and a very tall slender figure emerged, his body was very muscular and he was wearing a wide belt, he walked stiffly, like a robot. His face was not visible due to an intense orange light coming form the landed disc. There was a flash of light from an object in the entity’s hand causing the hair of the witness to stand up. The entity then communicated via telepathy with the witness. The witness claims he was taken inside the object to a room where he was shown a film of the alien’s home planet and was given numerous revelations.

On February 3 in the same garden the witness had encountered a hovering UFO that emitted intense heat. Pale and trembling Faria said that as he was returning from his bath, he had been seized by the arms, lifted about 8″ from the ground, and thrown backwards. He struggled and freed himself, falling on the ground. On his upper arms were visible red marks, apparently from claws that had gripped him. These marks, which were photographed, gradually turned brown and disappeared.

Jorge Roberto Herrera, an engineering student, saw an object shaped like 2 plates put together descend in falling-leaf fashion till within a yard of the ground, on which it then settled, tilted, beside the highway. It was aluminum colored until it landed, then it turned to a dull copper. It was about 16 ft wide. After 3 minutes, legs thrust out, which leveled the UFO. Then Herrera saw beside it a being 5’2″ tall, dressed in a white “diving suit” with opaque helmet; the arms were cut off short, without any hands. The feet covered by the suit, without footwear. This entity was not seen to emerge from the UFO. It glided a few feet without walking, then disappeared. A few seconds later the UFO retracted its legs, returned to an inclined position, and took off. Herrera was 50 ft from it at the time. He took one step and found he was at the landing marks, having moved 50 ft unconsciously. There were seven un-symmetrically arranged imprints in an area only about 5 ft square. A small truck came up, whose driver said that he had seen the UFO and that it had caused his engine and his radio to fail. This man drove Herrera, who now felt ill, to Salta; he entered a clinic, where he was treated for 8 days without ever being told the diagnosis.

In the next hour, at intervals of some minutes apart, she saw a total of 25 similar lights or objects flying over a low level-10 to 15 meters above the trees, moving very fast. With the aid of an old optical telescope, she observed in front of one of these objects a “man” standing, handling a “board;” it was a “tiny” figure, but “of great height.” He held one arm straight up. The witness reportedly took pictures of some of the objects, “It was impressive,” she is quoted as saying, insisting they were not normal aircraft, with which she is familiar, as there is a Belgian Air Base northeast of her locale.

M Brechant, his 11-year-old son, Patrice, and his brother in law, Mr. Cosme, were in a car on a dark night on a saucer hunting expedition. In a field near Songeons, 250-300 yards away, they saw a luminous ball whose light diminished in intensity; for a few seconds, 4-6 white luminous rectangles appeared beside it. Then they tried to drive around the light and observe it from the rear. This second luminous ball, likewise in a field, was about 200 yards away. From its base emerged a triangular beam of light, its base on the ball, and its point toward the left. Through binoculars, Mr. Cosme could see 2 luminous silhouettes of beings, one behind the beam and one “sliding on it” towards the point, where it disappeared. They seemed to have elongated heads and enormously broad shoulders; he could not distinguish arms and legs, but the one behind the beam seemed to carry a sack on its left side. This silhouette gradually “evaporated,” then the beam went out, and then the ball. On their way home the observer’s car was pursued by a ball of yellow-white, then yellow green light at treetop level, first seen 300 yards away and later approaching to within at most 50 yards.

Armando Silva and his wife, of La Salina, near Caracaya, were at their country home at the seashore. On the evening of the 28th they had seen two elongated bluish objects high overhead. About 0100A a stifling heat in the house awakened them. Mr. Silva went to the balcony and saw the two blue, capsule shaped objects they had seen earlier, now flying near the shore. One of them dropped into the sea and re-emerged on the surface, then was joined by the second, which bobbed on the surface nearby. Silva meanwhile had gone to the beach to see more clearly. “I was terrified when, at one of the small windows on the strange little object that came down from the sky and fell into the sea a few meters from shore, I saw a tiny figure, like a 5-year old child, and wearing on its head what looked like a great gourd. I cannot say for sure that it was an intelligent being, since I only saw half of its body and its head, which, as I say, looked like a gourd. Nor did I see any arms. And I didn’t wait to see if it made any movements, for I took to my heels and ran into the house, where my wife was watching from the balcony, the two things which had come down from the sky and were bobbing up and down in the water.” The incident lasted about 15 minutes.

During the night of April 15-16, more than a dozen witnesses reported observations of UFOs in the localized area of Penn and Manor, Pennsylvania, near the larger town of Jeanette. Among these was the report of a single witness who was driving near the Manor Power plant when he observed a large glowing object above nearby railroad tracks, just above the trees. Light from the object illuminated the immediate area, and the witness pulled over to the side of the road and got out for a better look. The object, no more than a hundred yards from the witness, was about 400 yards to the west of the power plant and approximately 10 feet above the treetops. The illumination was of an intense white, and the object itself completely illuminated but apparently solid in construction and about “3 car lengths” wide. It had a dome like structure on top the same bright color as the rest of the object. Around the main section were 2 or 3 rows of lights, or square windows, of a somewhat multi-color-one whitish, another red and the third a blue or green hue. More interesting than the object was “something” that appeared outside it, similar to the Apollo astronauts that were photographed “walking in space.” From the left side of the UFO a line extended some 30 yards at the end of which floated a form of some 8 or ten feet tall, of a purple or orange color. The witness did not say it was specifically human form, but it did appear to be similar to a human torso. He did not see the attendant object retracted into the UFO; rather it disappeared like “a string of lights.” He had left his lights on and engine running when he got out; 3-4 minutes, the headlights dimmed as low as a weak flashlight. When the object departed, the lights came back on as bright as before. The object made a high-pitched sound “like a spinning top” when it departed. “You could hear the trees blowing” as it went over them.

A family of five traveling by car on a clear night when they began noticing a bright blue white light pacing their vehicle. Eventually they stopped the car on the side of the road near a farm area and the main witness stepped out of the car to observe the light. She next recalled getting back into the car feeling nauseous and thirsty. When they drove to a nearby relative’s home the light appeared again and descended low over a nearby field. The object was round and had lighted windows. The witnesses became hysterical and the object suddenly shot up at tremendous speed. Later under hypnosis the main witness was able to remember seeing, in the first encounter, a brown and white calf rise up into the object within a beam of pale yellow light. The witness and her daughter were also transported inside the object. There the main witness watched in horror as two little men, gray in color with huge wrap around eyes with vertical pupils and wearing form fitting black outfits excise tissue from the calf’s eyeball, tongue and testicles and then lower the calf into a field apparently already dead. The daughter remembered being escorted into the object by several short humanoids that moved mechanically and performed medical tests on her. One of the beings was taller with different eyes from the others and seemed more compassionate towards the witness and was apparently a female. Both witnesses saw what appeared to be animal parts in a room inside the object.

The witness was driving west on Route 76, near Kent, when he observed a group of flashing lights overhead, almost directly above the car. They moved along the highway with him until finally, out of curiosity, he stopped; so did the lights. Looking up through the windshield, at close to a 90 degree angle, he could see a football shaped object that flashed from red to blue to white, in a repeating cycle; as he watched, he saw a figure materialize approximately 10 feet below the object. The figure was human in shaped, clad all in silver, and rapidly descended to the highway directly in front of the car; when it reached the pavement, the figure was standing rigidly in a position looking to the right, then turned its head to look directly into the windshield at the witness. After about a half a minute, the figure again ascended rapidly, “like a helium balloon,” towards the object; disappearing before it reached it. It was shaped exactly like a human, but was entirely silver in color, lacking hair and ears; eyes, a “Dutch” nose and narrow mouth, with small pointed chin, were observed by the witness. He was uncertain as to whether the silvery body was a close fitting garment or the actual skin color, for he saw what appeared to be the faint outline of a vein running down the inside of one of the figure’s arms, which he held rigidly downward; on the feet he saw what appeared to be boots or shoes, with a heavy, distinct line between the sole and boot itself. No line of demarcation could be seen between the shoe, or boot and the lower leg. The height of the figure was not much more than 2.5 feet; and it descended to a position approximately ten feet in front of the car. After the figure ascended, the object moved rapidly in a vertical ascent, rocking the car “as if a semi was passing it.”

Fay, 7, with a boy about her own age, was on the golf links when they heard a wailing siren like sound. They followed it through a hedge into a swampy meadow. The noise ceased. As they were crossing a brook by a footbridge, a strange figure came out from under the bridge. This person fumbled with a book, dropped it in the water, retrieved it, and then went with “a strange hopping motion, with knees raised high” to a metallic “hut” with no windows. The being was nearly 7-foot tall and neck less. He wore a yellow, pointed, hood like hat with a black knob on top and “wooden” antennae or horns on the sides, and a green tunic with a red collar. “His face had triangular markings for eyes, a brown square of a nose and motionless yellow lips.” Other round markings were on his paper-white cheeks, and a fringe of red hair fell onto his forehead. “Wooden slats” protruded from his sleeves and from below his white trousers. There were only three fingers on each blue-glove hand and 3 toes on his bare, white feet. The being carried from the hut a black knobbed microphone, into which he spoke (the children were now 50 yards away), saying “Hello, are you still there?” Since his tone sounded friendly, they approached him. He then wrote in a “notebook”, in a large hand, “Hello and I am all colors, Sam.” Talking without the aid of a microphone-his lips did not move, and his speech was unclear-he “asked the children about themselves.” They “asked about his clothes, which were all ripped” and “asked if he was really a man.” “No”, he replied, with a chuckle. When they asked if he was a ghost, he answered “Well, not really, but I am in an odd sort of way.” “What are you then?” they asked, but he replied, “You know.” He also said that he had no name, and “confided that he was frightened of people.” At his invitation, the children crawled through a flap into his hut, which he told them he had “just made.” It contained two levels. The lower, which “had plenty of headroom”, was “wall papered” in blue green and covered with a pattern of dials; there was an electric heater and simple wooden furniture. The upper level, less spacious, had a metal floor. He told the children that he fed upon berries, which he collected, and drank the river water after “cleaning” it. He said he had a “camp” in the mainland. Inside the hut he removed his hat to reveal round, white ears and sparse brown hair. Before eating a berry, he performed an “odd trick” with it; he placed the berry in his ear, where it disappeared and reappeared at one of his triangular eyes; “repeating the process, the berry traveled to his mouth.” The children talked to this being for at least half an hour, then rushed across the golf links to tell the firs man they met they had seen a ghost.

An anonymous man “who enjoys an excellent reputation in Bahia” was walking on some river property of his, carrying a shotgun, when he heard a soft humming. Then a man about 5’3″ tall appeared in front of him. He wore a brownish gray tight fitting leotard, with boots that appeared metallic, and a wide belt with a very large blue buckle. His face and his hands, which had long fingers, were pallid white, his ears small and pointed, and his head “larger than ours.” This man, speaking in Portuguese, told the witness not to be afraid, and to put away his gun, saying that he was “not of this world-I come from a planet that you people call a satellite.” He also said that his ship was hovering a few yards above them, invisible to the eye. Then he said, “Good bye, brother, I must go” and pushed a white button on his belt buckle. At this a beam of light shone on him “and then drew away, carrying the man with it”, he disappeared a few yards above the witness head.

Onilson Patero, 40-year-old salesman, was driving to his home in Catanduva during a rainstorm; he’d given a lift to a young hitchhiker and dropped him off at Itajobi. About 7 miles from Catanduva, on Highway 321, his car began to lose power and the radio failed, with static interference. At the same time he noticed a circle of light moving about in the car and pulled over, thinking it was from a truck that was passing. He then saw an object about 50 feet ahead and 40 feet over the road; the interior of the car began to heat up and Patero felt a lack of air, so he opened the door and stepped out. A “curtain of light” began to form around the object, and the heat and lack of air diminished. He could now see that this was not a helicopter, and he saw a “tube of light” hit the car and, as it did, the car became transparent. He fainted. About an hour later two young men who drove on to get police help found him; on their return they found Patero still laying in the mud and rain. He came to crying out “they were trying to get me!” He was taken to the hospital in Catanduva, and later released. Over the next several days, he suffered the physical effects of some unknown symptom. The case is cited not just because is a possible abduction; eleven months later, Patero was the principal in an abduction experience in which he vanished for five days, turning up again in Colatina 700 km away. Under regressive hypnosis, he described one of his abductors as the same individual he had given a ride to in the case cited here.

Driving a 6-ton truck loaded with asbestos sheeting, cement, and steel, Manuel Angel Gonzalez was in the vicinity of Cintalapa when he suddenly noticed five little figures standing in the road ahead of him with their arms raised in the air. They had abruptly appeared from nowhere. The driver braked his truck immediately, only a short distance from them. He thought at first they were children, but at closer range he saw they were perfectly proportioned adult figures but no more than 2 feet high, with light brown skin and black hair. He was unable to remember details about their clothing. As he got out of his truck, the little figures began scattering toward the sides of the road, disappearing into the underbrush along the highway. As he turned to go back to his truck, he saw it suddenly engulfed in blue flame; in a matter of no more than 30 minutes, the truck and its normally non-flammable cargo were reduced to ashes and fused metal. Two other motorists who stopped to watch witnessed the conflagration. Interestingly, according to the witness, two days after the truck was consumed by fire, metal fragments that had been collected spontaneously burst into blue flames and were reduced to ashes. The witness related the appearance of the little figures to stories of little people of Mexican folklore, the Chaneques. The investigators later learned that two other trucks were similarly destroyed and that in one case, UFOs were seen.

As she got up to the kitchen sink she looked up at the window and saw an oval-shaped craft hovering above the backyard. It was just a few feet from the kitchen window. She stood for a few minutes unable to move. It had a pulsating light inside an opening and she was able to see several figures standing inside, however she could not see any details or features. She was finally able to move and ran to the bedroom to wake her husband up. By the time her husband came to the kitchen the UFO was gone, but not completely. It hovered around about half a mile away, it seemed to spin and glide gracefully.

Geni Lisboa was busily baking wedding cakes early in the morning when her attention was drawn outdoors by the cries of her pet parakeet. Looking out, she saw an illuminated object approaching her property. The object circled the garden and hovered above the wall, at which time Ms Lisboa, only a few meters distant, could see through the transparent upper portion three identical figures of small stature, behind a kind of “parapet” which hid them from the waist down. Each one was shining a beam of light down as if searching for something when their beams simultaneously converged on the witness, immediately paralyzing her. Feeling some pain and dizziness, she was able to call out for help to her neighbor. But the object had departed before she was able to respond. When her neighbor arrived, she found Ms Lisboa’s face swollen and her eyes bloodshot. Her body was painful, particularly in the joints, and especially in the knees, but she continued working until the pain returned and she was forced to call her neighbor again. Her physiological symptoms worsened and she was hospitalized for what the doctors called “prolapsed of the uterus.” She had had a gynecological test 6 months earlier and had been healthy. In addition to this, her eyesight worsened after the experience to the point where she was forced to wear corrective lenses for the first time in her life; also, a previous condition of hypertension seems to have made an improvement to the degree where she dropped all previous anti-hypertensive medication.

Having unloaded some merchandise from his truck, truck driver Crisanto Marvel Perez and a companion were napping in the truck when Perez was awakened by a noise; he dozed off again and was again awakened and, through a rearview mirror on the outside of the truck he observed three whitish figures approaching. His companion was still asleep. Through the opposite mirror he saw the three figures peer in the window behind his head; he remained still, as though asleep, but was able to see that they examined the inside of the truck with curiosity. They were generally normal in appearance except for a “parrot-like” nose, and either their skin was scaly or they wore clothes that had a scaly appearance. On their heads was a kind of helmet divided across the top from front to back by a crest. They spoke among themselves in an incomprehensible language that had a sound similar to that made by bats. After they had examined the inside of the truck, the beings moved off, and Perez woke up his companion to tell him what happened; the man was incredulous. Perez drove home and was “very excited,” going right to bed. He experienced a “strong fever and headache.” Earlier that night, en route to Arecibo, he had observed a star-like object that seemed to be pacing his car. He saw it again on a subsequent night, but did not see the beings again.

The craft had a shiny metallic surface. From the object emerged seven to ten human like figures wearing dark outfits, they descended to the ground via an extended ladder. On the ground some of the figures just stood and looked around, while others appeared to jump and the rest gesticulated. Everything was extremely silent.

Two men in their late thirties were on the way home from fishing when on impulse they decided to pull over on Rio Dam and throw their lines for one last time. They were both about to cast the lines when they noticed an oval shaped craft flying low over the lake and approaching them. The craft was rusty to brownish purple in color and had a dull “matte to purple finish.” The object had about five portholes that emitted a green “fluorescent light” from inside. From the front of the object two purple pinkish beams of light swept forward and down to Rio Lake. The beams appeared to have “substance” inside them, apparently sucking up water from the river. The craft reached to about 100 feet away from the witnesses then they saw an entity inside the object. The entity had a leathery, wrinkled looking face and large pointed ears. Its skin was of a light brownish color, it had a round mouth, round eyes, and its face was flattened against the rectangular porthole of the object. It also had two hands thrown up against the window near its head. It moved its mouth and appeared to be exclaiming in great surprise upon seeing that he was being watched. Immediately the object accelerated to a high speed and continued its course quickly disappearing from sight at very low altitude over the dam.

As it hovered there a square opening appeared on the side facing her, like “garage doors opening.” Illuminated brightly from within, the witness observed a human like figure approach the opening from one side, cross over, and then bend down “to do something.” When she uttered an exclamation to herself he abruptly looked up and out at the witness, peering directly at her by leaning out of the opening. He was visible from the knees up and seemed to be wearing a tight garment. He “dropped his head down” as he looked at her and she could see he was tall, with a large head, and with hands that appeared to be busy working on instruments. At that point she heard a humming sound and looking off to her left she saw a second, smaller object approaching in the same direction. It passed a post on the patio and abruptly disappeared; she then looked back toward the first object and found it too had vanished. She then fell asleep and when she awoke later, found herself lying in a different position. Under hypnotic regression, she described seeing the same figure appear before her on the patio. She then describes in vague uncertain ways how she was told not to be afraid, and then “taken somewhere” by being floated upwards. She recalled seeing a dog that had been constantly barking also floating in the air. She was in some dark “enclosed” place where she couldn’t see and an instrument of some sort was placed on her head, which made her uncomfortable. There were others around her but she “felt” them rather than seeing them; she had the impression they were “talking” to each other in a language she could not understand. She had the impression there were two people present. When she awoke on the patio, it was some 4 or 5 hours later.

A disk shaped object crashed in the desert on the mountainous area in the extreme western part of Arizona, and was retrieved by the US military. The craft was about 8.4 to 8.7 meters in diameter and about 3.5 meters high, shaped like deep inverted saucer on top, installed on top of each other, with a rim or flat plate between the two parts. On top the disk possessed a small dome. The central rim was segmented by zigzagging structures. On the bottom, there were 3 landing props (they were possibly not outside when the disk was found). A door was opened on the lower section of the disk. The most amazing fact for the retrieval team was that the disk was apparently larger inside than what it looked from outside. The disk was transported to 29 Palms Marine corps base in Southern California (to an underground bunker), where it was placed suspended in a heavy net hanging from a large crane. A photographer was called from Norton AFB, California to photograph the object. The bodies of three aliens were found inside the craft. All three were dwarfs, about 1.0 meter in height, with extremely pale white “skin” (it was later established during an autopsy at Wright Patterson AFB that the white skin was merely a protective covering like pellicle and beneath it, was the real skin, which was lizard-like, and greenish-blue-gray in color). The entities had large black round eyes, and large hairless heads. All three dwarfs were dressed in tight-fitting blue jumpsuits and had 3 fingers both on their hands and legs, with claws and webs. The bodies were later moved to Wright Patterson AFB by aircraft from the 29 Palms base. After a preliminary examination in 29 Palms, the disk was moved to the S4 underground base in Nevada. In February 1993 the disk was removed from S4 and taken to a new underground base on the White Sands missile range, New Mexico, where it is still located at the present. The origin of the disk was established as HD 5015 Cassiopeia Star system, 60 light years from Earth. (This is obviously a more in depth description of the # 2 case and the # 15 cases in the file).

An anonymous 20-year old man, on night guard at a lumberyard, observed a wildly maneuvering light that approached and a point over the nearby ocean, at some 20 meters above the water and hovered, at which time a transparent tube-like extension emerged and descended to the water, apparently taking on water. The operation was accompanied by a strange “cicada-like” sound, and the tube glowed until the operation was finished. The tube withdrawn, the object then approached the witness to a point some 50 meters above his head and he could see through lighted windows around the center several figures. One was visible through a center window, and two more two windows to the right. They were “too small and deformed to be called the shadows of men.” During this the witness experienced a feeling of being bound hand and foot; he then noticed several more ball-like objects in the same vicinity; they were quickly withdrawn into the larger object and the UFO moved off rapidly into the north.

There, 100 meters above her, was a circular object about 10 meters in diameter, emitting a bluish luminosity, with a cupola on its upper part and a row of little windows around it, through which a dim light came from the inside, where there could be seen “some strange figures, looking out.” The craft remained motionless for several seconds, until a commercial plane went by; the UFO followed it for a few moments before going away toward the sea. It seems that this phenomenon was also observed by a newspaperman of the local daily and by a group of office employees of the Argentine National Airlines. Later, at 1915 Mr. Villegas succeeded in seeing it with his Urano 100 telescope of 200x magnification, making out some shadows that seemed to be moving around inside it; the object was already at a greater altitude. The UFO remained in the sky of Mar Del Plata for 4 hours, during which it was seen by hundreds of witnesses.

A disc-shaped craft about 30 ft in diameter, lens-shaped, with a small dome on top, crashed for unknown reasons. It was retrieved intact and moved at first to an underground hangar at 29 Palms base, where it was placed on a big elevator lift. 3 dead humanoids (not of the gray type, but not described) were found inside. After that, the disk was moved to Wright Patterson and later to the S-4 facility. Incredibly the disk was larger inside than outside. (This bizarre detail has been described in numerous occasions).

A group of three unidentified witnesses observed the descent of a torpedo-shaped UFO over an isolated area near one of the witness ranch. As the UFO hovered near the ground, three “objects” dropped from it to the ground and “ambled” off in different directions. The witness said the “objects” were “animate” and one described two lights in what would approximate the area of the head (or two luminous eyes) of a reddish color. Next day at the site, tracks similar to those of Bigfoot appearances were made in the area, specifically one by a group of people on the night of July 25, at which time a convoy of military trucks appeared on the scene and, under the glare of spotlights, military personnel presumably “corralled” a Bigfoot and carted him off in a truck.

A 16-year old man found and photographed some strange traces in the area. He seems to have experienced a period of missing time. Later under hypnosis he recalled being approached and touched by a human figure. He then became confused and felt being sucked up into a hovering object through an opening underneath. He found himself in a round room where four figures were standing. A woman then entered the room and the beings began talking and touching the witness. He could not move the whole time. He then sat on a chair next to a window and saw the object descend and land. He was then released.

An ungodly looking creature created havoc among the local god-fearing Amish community. Witnesses described the creature as following: The size of a good heifer, gray in color with a white mane. It had tiger like fangs and curved horns like a Billy goat. It ran upright on long legs, and had long grizzly claws. In one incident, the creature sent a team of horses and two brothers flying when it approached their hay wagon. The following day, a man was cutting weeds on his farm about five miles from the previous incident when he heard a fierce roar and turned to see a monster with three horns and a tail charging in his direction. He raised his scythe to defend himself, only to have the implement ripped from his hands. At that point, the man wisely decided to turn both cheeks to the monster and escaped as fast as he could run. A day later a woman was feeding poultry on a farm midway between the two earlier incidents when she heard a commotion and turned to see the creature in the act of snatching a goose in each of its hands. She bravely ran toward the thing, waving her apron. The woman managed to recover one of her geese when the creature threw it at her, knocking her to the ground in the process. The interloper then escaped with the remaining bird in hand.

Edmund, a 19-year old youth from the Amparo settlement, was in the fruit garden of the farm when he noticed agitation among the nearby fruit trees, although the afternoon was calm and all the other trees motionless. Investigating, he discovered a strange spherical object 2 meters wide hovering just above the ground. Atop the sphere was a 10-meter tall contraption that consisted of a cylindrical rod surmounted by a cone shaped device that fanned outward toward the top. The entire object had a metallic sheen and revolved slowly. Edmund approached to within a meter but, apprehensive, retreated to a distance of about 4 meters. At this point an aperture appeared in the side of the craft with a loud bang; from it emerged a small humanoid figure in a one-piece suit that covered his head. Strapped to his back was a rather large, squarish backpack. The entity did not walk, but floated, with a “feverish” swinging of arms and legs in midair. The entity approached Edmund to within a distance of a meter, at which time the youth became panic stricken and fled, seeking others at the farmhouse. As he ran off, he looked back and saw the little being still “hovering” in the air at the spot where he stopped when the boy ran off. When he returned with others, there was no sign of either entity or object. No traces were left at the site.

Margaret and Christine were leaving the park after a visit. Following a lane out of the park they came to a junction where the green ended and a housing estate began. A car drew up quietly behind them. At this point two things happened simultaneously: the radio went dead and the car engine cut out. As if they eyes were drawn by a magnet, Christine, in the back seat with her young friend, looked to the left across an area of open ground. Heading towards them strode two veritable giants moving in a rather mechanical manner, like machines rather than living beings. Both wore one-piece silver suits, emphasizing their over large heads. Christine cannot be sure how long it took the entities to cover the space that separated them, but she does have a vivid memory of the strange beings getting closer and closer to the car, and the car simply refusing to start. When the two beings were almost up to the window, within yards of where Christine sat frozen and unable to move, she experienced a choking sensation and, it seems, passed out. What happened next remains a mystery. When Christine came to, she saw the backs of the two giants as they returned in the direction they had come from. Moments after they had disappeared from view, a cone of light spread around the trees at the edge of the field, as if marking the path of an object heading skywards. At this precise moment the car engine roared into life, as did the radio. A human voice was also heard—the driver of the vehicle behind had rushed up and shouted: “What the bloody hell was that?” When Christine arrived home she noticed that there had been a considerable time lapse.

A week or ten days later after observing a mysterious light maneuvering in the sky, the witness had to return to Phoenix for more things and she asked her brother to go along with her for company. While driving up a hill somewhere in the vicinity of Indio, she began to receive pictures in her mind and had a sense of presence. These “images” came in grays and browns; she would counter them by thinking of bright colors. She could sense a kind of puzzlement regarding her color images. She found the “gray” images unpleasant, and had the sense of an interior, with gray green walls, which had three vague “forms” in it. Feeling that she was daydreaming and tired, she forced her concentration back to her driving and noticed colors reflecting on the dashboard and asked her brother if there was something in the sky. She and her brother both observed briefly a light over the highway changing colors from blue, to green, to red, to yellow, then to a brilliant white. Then it vanished, in view less than a minute. Her brother was very excited. The trip continued, apparently uneventfully. Later under hypnotic regression the main witness is asked to examine d her image of gray interior more closely. She describes the gray-green walls, with at least one black line, or slot, on the back wall. She is with three vague shapes or “shadows.” It’s not a pleasant place; she feels there’s another experience at another time. She is asked to go back to that experience and she finds herself in another room with a window looking out on an orange sky. There is a white bench in the room. The room is very sterile. Then she finds herself in a huge place with a domed ceiling; she is standing beside a 20-foot high crystal, set at an angle so that it points toward the sky. It’s green on the bottom half, and it turns. There are other similar crystals in this place; about five in all, they are hooked to a large piece of machinery. It’s similar to a generator. The crystal is connected to the machine by a rod. The whole room hums. There are two other people with her; one dressed in gray, looks older, with grayish hair. The younger man, in black, is taller. They point out a formula to her, which is on the wall; it is composed of script letters. She is brought out of the trance and is given the post hypnotic suggestion that she will recall the formula and be able to reproduce it on a piece of drawing paper, which she does.

The witness had been working in her garden and burning weeds when she saw, about 1200 feet away, just above the trees, a round object like two dishes face to face. It was about 60 feet wide and had “lots of windows” around it. She first thought the kids had erected a tree house with old stolen windows, but saw it was too large, and above the trees. She could see a single figure “he couldn’t be very tall for sure,” walking from window to window. The windows were brightly lit from within. Scared, she and her niece went indoors, with the intention of looking at it through a bedroom window. When they got there, the object was gone. The tops of the trees at the site “seemed tome like they were browned, and as if cut across.” She found no other evidence at the site when she examined it the next day.

Suddenly he became aware of two “men” standing next to him, one that touched him. They were about 1.55 meters in height. The men wore tight-fitting gray blue coveralls. Since the field was brightly lit by the bright moonlight he could see that the men had dark brown hair, with fine chiseled features and appeared young. The witness heard a voice in his head telling him to be calm. The man standing to his right then offered him a “round pill” which he swallowed.

Elizabeth Richmond and her husband were returning home on State Road 24 when they sighted a red glowing object rounded on the top and flat on the bottom. It was sun-like, four times as wide as the sun and much more red. It hovered, appeared solid, and had an outline. The next thing they recalled was seeing the sun in the west, realizing that what they had just seen was not the sun. When they got home they realized that they had arrived an hour later than they should have arrived. Years later under hypnosis Elizabeth recalled that the car had lifted quickly off the road and in an instant they were inside the bottom of the huge circular craft. Alien beings quickly but gently took them out of the car and into separate rooms. The beings were about 4 or 5 ft tall with large dome shaped baldheads, huge black wrap-around eyes, small noses, and slits for mouths. They had long dangling arms with claw-like nails, and were dressed in metallic like gray jumpsuits. Elizabeth lay on a table with three aliens on each side and one at her feet. She was terrified but could not scream. One alien took hold of her hand and told her telepathically no to be afraid. An instrument was put up her nose into her head. She felt nothing. Then she was put into a sitting position and something was done to the back of her head. The aliens discovered that she was wearing a wig. This caused some merriment, and one alien touched his own baldhead, perhaps indicating they should wear them. After that she was carried to another room and the alien who had held her arm came in and sat before her. Taking her hands in his, he said his name was “Maag” and he was happy to see her again. She was told that she and him had been mates and that that they had two daughters who were now aboard the spacecraft. He asked to see them. The humanoid then touched a light, doors opened and two beautiful aliens entered the room. They rushed across the room and embraced Elizabeth. They said she had volunteered to reincarnate on Earth (as did many others) to help usher in a new era of world peace, and we would learn more about it later—when the time was right. They said that our planet will soon be undergoing great change, and we will need their help. It would be the beginning of an era of world peace.

Walking toward the copse, they encountered a man 6.5-7 ft tall, wearing a 2-piece garment of dark green denim like material with an “anorak” type hood almost completely covering his face. He held a silver object resembling a flashlight. The man shouted in a resonant voice; “Move on-go away!” McClure shouted, “Will you harm us?” There was no reply, he then asked, “Will you come back?” The answer was “Yes.” Another member of the group followed this man into the copse, where he vanished while the witness attention was diverted for a moment.

Two 17-year old boys, driving north on Rte 7 from Westchester County, saw a large oval object with flashing colored lights when they were several miles south of town. The object hovered just over the ridge on the west side of the Housatonic River, and they stopped and got out for a better look and were joined by another couple, a boy and girl also driving back from Westchester. Meanwhile on Spooner Hill, to the east, a witness on his way to visit his friends, a young married couple, saw the same object and when he arrived at his friend’s house, he called them outside. By this time the object had dropped behind the ridge, although they could still see its lights shining over the crest of the hill. They got into the witness car and drove down the hill to Route 7, where they met the four younger people. All seven then drove north into town to bring back two additional witnesses. The large object was no longer visible, but they now saw a dozen or so smaller whitish lights maneuvering in a circular pattern just this side of the ridge. These lights then separated into a single line and proceeded north toward Mt. Algo, just southwest of the main section of town. The witnesses got into their cars and followed the lights toward Kent. The two additional witnesses were dropped off in town while the other seven turned west on Rte. 341 and crossed the bridge over the river, heading toward Mt. Algo. There they turned south on Schaghticoke Road, which runs along the base of the mountain, to Bonu’s Field, an open spot about a mile south. The group assembled there briefly but was unable to see anything. Meanwhile, at about the same time, a separate group of three teenage girls, camping out in one of their backyards along the Housatonic, observed a line of lights descending Mt. Algo on its steep north side. The witnesses at Bonu’s field had gotten back in their cars and drove north again to the junction of Rte 341, where they discovered a small white car parked, which had not been there a few minutes earlier. They parked their cars and the two younger boys got out and asked the occupants of the white car (two unidentified girls) if they had seen anything unusual. They said that they were waiting for a group of hikers who had told them an hour earlier that they were “hiking over the mountain” and that the girls should meet them there. Just then a group of 15 to 20 “hikers” came jogging down Schaghticoke Road from the same direction the young people had just driven (they had not seen anyone on the road). Each “hiker” had a lighted hat like a miner’s hat on his head and they all carried poles or “rods.” They were mumbling or “chanting” and approached in a double column. They did not answer the boy’s questions as they passed on either side of them, when asked where they’d come from. According to the young people, the “hikers” apparently turned right at Rte 341 and headed towards Kent. However, when they all got back in their cars and drove after them, the “hikers” were nowhere to be seen-as though they had disappeared into thin air. According to the two young men and the younger couple, there were at least two hours they could not account for. The three older people could not recall what they did or where they went after the “hikers’ passed. Hypnotic regression was apparently attempted, but the results are not described.

13-year old boy and other younger children watched a lighted disc shaped object slowly descend over the area. It then hovered silently overhead. They could see three lighted windows and behind them several occupants that appeared to be looking down. They were described as having large oblong shaped heads that seemed too big for their thin necks. They appeared to be leaning on something, and their long skinny arms were crossing each other. The craft suddenly turned its lights off and ascended rapidly out of sight.

The witness was driving a truck from L’Anse about dusk when he saw a silver gray object, about 80 ft in diameter, glide across the road to hover just above the car in front of him. The car abruptly stopped, and he had to brake hard to avoid hitting it. As he stopped the truck he saw a woman get out of the car ahead and kneel down in the grass to pray with a rosary. He ran to the woman and found she was not hurt; meanwhile the object hovered overhead at an altitude of about 90 ft. It then moved off to the west to hover again, while it hovered its bottom lights were multicolored, but when it moved they turned magenta purple. There was a red “stone like” light on top of a windowed cupola. At this time he saw in a window the silhouette of a man with short blond hair; he waved, and the man waved back. Then the UFO rose, with a “high hum” and shot away to the NE. He found that the woman had not seen the UFO. His batteries were now normal.

Joseph Cottrell, 42, a machinery inspector, went outside for a breath of air and saw a glowing ball “like a ball of fireflies” 500 yards away. He began to walk toward it, upon which it “burst” into 7 smaller units which rapidly and silently approached him, glowing alternately red, white, and green. They came to a stop about 100 ft away and an altitude of 50 ft, and he saw they were 6-9 ft in diameter. Realizing that “there were alien beings inside the glowing balls,” he asked “Why me”? Telepathically he heard an answer, “Why not you?” After 10-15 minutes he ran back to his house, loaded his camera, and returned with his son, Wayne, and a shotgun; Wayne carried a 22-caliber rifle. The luminous objects were now 120-150 ft away at an altitude of 35 ft, in a group of 4 and another 3. He heard a telepathic question “Are you going to shoot us?” He replied “No.” Then a beam of light appeared at his feet, and passed all over his body, pausing at sites of old injuries. He thought, “They were making a Xerox copy of me.” The intensity of the beam was increased to a point where he felt very uncomfortable; when he complained, it was reduced again. Meanwhile he was carrying on a telepathic conversation; “I was imprinted with a new world of friendly alien being.” They showed him pictures of “glass like cities, energy systems and components”, and warned against nuclear energy as dangerous. About an hour passed, and the objects had come very close; Mr. Cottrell realized that “they wanted us to go with them.” He raised his hands in protection; the objects immediately returned to their former position, and after a few minutes disappeared.

Julian Garside was riding home from work on a friend’s motorbike when the two young men saw 3 bright triangular lights, or shapes, gliding uphill through the woods near the road. They stopped and, out of curiosity, decided to follow. The shapes speeded up and the boys noticed an odor like burning oil. When they reached the top of the hill, a quarter mile from the road, the figures had vanished; above them, however, they observed a small, round orange light, like a road crossing beacon. It vanished in about a minute. There had been no path through the woods, and the three objects (or figures) appeared to glide straight through the undergrowth, leaving no traces. The odor of oil was the only trace left behind.

The main witness was walking through a local park along with some friends when a strange heavy mist began enveloping the area. There seemed to be a silvery glow coming from the center of the mist and the witness felt strongly attracted towards it. As she got closer she saw a beautiful silvery object or “starship” on the ground. She went inside the object and saw several of her friends being led towards different sections of the object. She was taken to a large circular room of transparent blue color with two transparent doors at each end. The occupants of the object were all apparently beautiful human like beings. Through a large window she saw a woman sitting on what appeared to be a communications console. The witness sat on a chair in the center of the room and ate from a bowl of fruit on a table. A man entered the room and walked into what appeared to be a circular shower stall, removed some dirty coveralls, the stall lit up and the man then emerged wearing shiny clean coveralls. The witness felt that she experienced some type of mind transplant or control onboard the object, which changed her life.

While picking up mushrooms on the woods on Mont Real, the witness observed a 4-foot tall dwarf standing at the edge of the clearing 100 feet away. As he grabbed something from the ground a second identical being joined him from the woods beyond. They looked perfectly human and wore beige coveralls that covered them up the wrists and neck; their feet were obscured by high grass. Their arms were slender and their hands normal. Each wore a black beret on his head. Thinking they were children, the witness called out to them, whereupon they laughed aloud, then turned and fled into the brush behind them. A few seconds later, the witness saw a dull blue gray oval shaped object, about 5 meters wide, rise up beyond the trees, ascending to a height of 20 feet, making a slight whistling sound. There it paused briefly, then departed toward the northeast rapidly and in total silence. At the landing site, a bush, and some grass had been flattened, suggesting that the object had been hovering a foot or so above the ground.

The humanoid was carrying a large luminous sphere in his hands. The girls ran hysterically into the house. The father of one of the girls then went into the woods in search of the creature and stayed there for over an hour. When he returned he refused to talk about what he had seen in the woods. At the same time he was in the woods several people watched a silvery object hovering over the woods. At one point it emitted a beam of light into the woods.

The witnesses, Claude Champoux, Florent Papillon and a man called J R were camping near a lake when they heard a loud engine-like sound coming from a nearby field. Upon investigating the source the men spotted an oval-shaped metallic object on the ground. The object was silvery in color and emitted neon-like orange lights that changed colors to blue, red, etc. A strange man-like figure, metallic or robot like in appearance stood next to the object. He either wore a reflective metallic suit or was himself made out of metal; his body emitted bright silvery flashes. While on the ground the object emitted a sound resembling that of a transformer. Soon the strange character disappeared into the object, which then rose up moving up and down like a yo-yo, it then accelerated and disappeared at high speed. They estimated the craft to have been about 600 ft in diameter.

While enroute to work, the witness motorcycle misfired and stopped as a dazzling bright light appeared on the road ahead. As he approached, he saw it was a luminous ovoid object, with smoke underneath, hovering just above the ground. A “man” suddenly appeared and came up to the witness, putting his left hand on the witness shoulder and offered “reassuring words.” The man was about 2 meters tall thin, wearing a uniform like aluminum; a large helmet rested on his shoulders with a snorkel like tube on the right side. His face was “like a human face covered with a nylon stocking” with slanted eyes. He carried something like a pistol in his right hand, pointed at the ground. He asked the witness where he was going; he replied, “To my job.” The being then said he must return to the “object” and told the witness not to inspect it too closely. He entered it from beneath, and it rose vertically, with a sound like a swarm of bees, and then moved off horizontally. The motorcycle then started normally.

Serge Lisboa, 38, his wife Maria, 38, and Maria Marmela Santos Costa, 21, were driving to Porto and had just passed Tua when they heard a humming sound and got out to see a white luminous lens shaped object, emitting flashes of red light from a transparent dome on its top, at about 100 ft altitude. It appeared to be only 6 ft wide and 3 ft high. They drove on and had passed Alijo when they heard a humming sound again, this time modulated and rhythmic. At the same time the driver “began to notice some difficulties with his motor.” However no object was seen. About 5 km from Villa Real they came upon a bright green luminous cylindrical object resting on the road. Lisboa braked and just managed to avoid it. At the same moment, the passengers in the car noticed two flashing red lights on the left side of the road, at the level of the roadside gravel. As they approached they saw that these lights were on the tip of 20′ antennas on the helmets of two short men in astronaut costume, who were lying on their backs beside the road, their feet toward the road. Their suits were shiny and “lead-like”, giving the impression of a malleable foil, and they wore spherical helmets with rectangular windows, and gloves on their hands. The car passed within 6 ft of these beings, who were about 5 ft tall. Frightened, Lisboa tried to accelerate, but the car was slow to respond. As they passed the men and the green object, they could hear “an indistinct gurgling sound.” Then they saw the two humanoids rise from the ground, rigidly without moving their arms or legs. They had small “knapsacks” on their backs. The two humanoids then rose into the air, and disappeared form view above the car.

Looking out through her kitchen window, Mrs Gerry Armstrong saw a strange figure moving rapidly through the back garden, its feet “not touching the ground.” Calling her husband, they observed the figure glide down the path and leap over the gate at the back of the property, like “an astronaut on the moon.” They dashed outside and Gerry took after the figure, which had by now disappeared. As they looked around, Gerry noticed the figure now on the golf course on the other side of the road, approaching in his direction. As it approached the wire fence near the road, it hesitated, and then climbed under the wire. The figure then re-entered the Armstrong’s property and moved toward an abandoned cottage, disappearing behind it. They did not see him again: it was as if he had disappeared into thin air. The figure was of normal size and dressed in a tight fitting red jumpsuit with attached hood that covered the head. The face was open, but they could not make out any features. Armstrong felt that in the five seconds the figure stared at him from across the road, before disappearing behind the cottage, there may have been some sort of telepathic communication, but he cannot be certain and does not recall any message.

A woman arising from bed glanced out a window and clearly saw three “little men” outside her house. They were 4-foot tall and were dressed in white outfits like monks habits, with tight belts around their waists; on their heads they wore cowls with two points that hung on their shoulders. They seemed to be looking for something on the ground by the walkway between her house and a nearby school and had instruments in their hands. They wore wide, blunt shoes. One of the little men looked toward the house and apparently saw the witness “with my nose against the window” for he appeared startled and said something to the other two, unheard by the witness; all three turned at once and moved off quickly “with very small fast steps.” Going to another window in the house to see if she could see more, the witness discovered a glowing red, spherical object of 2 or 2.5 meters in diameter at a distance from the house of 35 or 40 meters. She went to wake up her husband; when they looked for the object it had disappeared.

While driving late at night a man saw a light flashing to his left, then right, then in front. It gained speed and disappeared ahead of his car. He lost conscious memory while driving at 70 mph, and regained consciousness driving at 85-90 mph on the same highway. On arrival at his home in Cleveland he discovered a lapse of time he could not account for of 55 minutes to an hour and twenty-five minutes. A series of disturbing psychic experiences had occurred to the witness before and after this time. Under regressive hypnosis the witness saw himself turning off I-71, asking himself “Why am I doing this?” and driving down a dark, narrow tree-lined road, seeing three beings on the road, one with both arms and legs outstretched, forming the silhouette of an X. Two others were closer to his car. He next saw two sets of eyes ahead and a face forming and shimmering to his left. Each set of eyes was projected into his brain and out again. His next impression was of approaching a craft with a door on the upper side. He felt terror but as he passed through the door he felt relief. He next felt himself lying on a table and saw beings with a silvery metallic look. One was bending over looking at his legs. A brightly lighted instrument was brought close to his head, hurting his eyes. Presently he was out of the craft, standing and watching it lift off. It was black, outlined by a shimmering white light.

Jeff Martin was fishing at a lake with two companions. His friends had gone off to another part of the lake when Martin heard something behind him. He turned and saw, about 20 ft away, an apelike figure watching. At least Martin thought it was apelike, since it was dusk and visibility was poor. Frightened, he called to the being, which did not respond. For some reason, though, Martin felt better about the situation, and was almost sorry when the creature slipped away. A few minutes later something touched his shoulder. Martin, who was sitting, whirled his head around and saw a sandy-colored anthropoid creature. The creature ran away with amazing swiftness, Martin in hot pursuit. It moved in running leaps, “like a man on a rope being pulled too fast by a car.” As it crossed the road, the witness would hear its feet slapping on the blacktop. It turned around one last time, leaped over a ditch, and disappeared into the woods. Shortly afterwards a glowing bronze object shot out of the trees and into the sky, fading away so quickly that the whole series of events seemed nearly instantaneous. The following evening, Martin, his fiancé Nellie Floyd, Gene Floyd, and two friends drove to the spot, trailed all the way by a white, glowing star-like light. The object disappeared near a bridge not far from where Martin had seen the creature. When they got to that spot, the creature was waiting for them. The thing was about eight or nine ft tall was standing in tall weeds. The observes turned their flashlight on it and noticed a very curious detail: The beams seemed somehow “weaker” on the creature, which stood motionless, almost as if in a trance, giving off a musty odor. Oddly, its presence did not seem to disturb the crickets, frogs, or other wildlife. They hurled some rocks at it, but the creature seemed to ignore them. When the witness had to moved their vehicle due to incoming traffic, the creature disappeared.

Shortly after nightfall Hickson, looking around to bait his hook, saw a domed, football shaped object descend until it hovered just off the ground about 30 ft away from them. The craft had two windows and two blue lights, and made a buzzing sound. When the object landed, an unseen door opened to reveal a brilliantly lit interior. Three beings came out and floated toward the witnesses. These beings were about five ft tall. Their skin was so gray and rough, like elephant skin that they looked like mummies. No clothes were apparent. On their faces was something about two inches long that came out to a point and resembled a nose. They had a slit for a mouth, which never opened, if they had eyes, Hickson couldn’t see them, as the area above the nose was too wrinkled. They had no neck and their ears were pointed and retractable. Their arms were unusually long, and their hands were like mittens with a thumb attached. Their legs never moved but stayed together like a pedestal. Their feet were elephant-like. When two of the beings grabbed Hickson by the arms, he felt a pain in his left shoulder. This immobilized him and allowed his captors to lift and float Hickson over and into the craft. The third being seized Parker, who immediately went limp. Once inside, Hickson was nearly blinded by the light but was unable to close his eyes. He saw no furniture inside, only a screen-like device on the wall. He hung suspended in the air at a 45-degree angle while an eyelike device appeared out of the wall in front of his face and circled around him. The beings that held Hickson during his examination moved in a stiff mechanical way but did their work with speed and efficiency. One made a buzzing sound. The beings then disappeared for some time. When they returned, they grasped Hickson again and floated him through the opening, which had reappeared, and took him back to the place where they had found him. His legs collapsed when he touched the ground. Parker stood by with a terrified look on his face. Meanwhile the buzzing sound and blue light resumed, and the craft rose straight up and disappeared almost instantly. Hickson “heard” a message in his mind that the beings were peaceful. One of the witnesses, Hickson, subsequently reported three other incidents, one of which apparently involved the same beings. Two involved telepathic communication only and the transfer of information that was not disclosed.

Time: night
Nancy, 22 and her boyfriend Jim were camping at Phantom Lake with another couple and the couple’s baby; Nancy and Jim, just settled down in the camper for the night, were awakened by a bright light shining through the back window. Then the camper door suddenly burst open. They saw a bright saucer shaped object about to land, descending in a zigzag motion; on the ground, the glowing object then disgorged a variety of about 20 figures, male, who approached the camper slowly. One appeared to be a black man; a second was similar to a swami, standing on one leg with his other leg wrapped around his head. A disembodied face appeared in the camper telling them not to be afraid. About seven of the men stood in a semi-circle 10 feet away form the van door. One of the seven men had dark curly hair and was dressed in blue jeans and a red plaid shirt; he held a German shepherd in each hand by a leash. The group of figures stood there for about 10 minutes staring silently at the witnesses, who cowered inside the van in great fright. A man carried a scroll. Three more beings, different from the others and only four-foot tall, came out of the “space ship” and moved about the area very quickly, “just sort of running around.” They seemed to glow a whitish green color. One of these perched in a tree. While this strange assemblage was still present, Jim jumped out of the camper and alerted their friends, asleep in a tent nearby. They were unable to understand what all the excitement was about, being unable to see either “spaceship” or any of the beings. Jim hustled them into the camper, collected all their belongings, found his dog and, with the other couple driving, they took off. En route back to Milwaukee, the couple in the rear of the camper experienced all sorts of odd phenomena, including a glove hand apparition, a presence, and both Nancy and Jim experienced hysteria. The other couple perceived nothing unusual, and believed their friends crazy. They were taken, in fact, directly to an emergency hospital entrance upon return.

They had baldheads; grayish white wrinkled skin and rounded ears. They moved mechanically. The witness passed out, and then came to on the floor, propped against the wall, unable to move. The entities were examining him with an oval object that showed the bones of his legs when it passed over them. He had a severe headache and passed out again as a being reached toward him. He awakened toward dawn on the floor. He found lights on the bedroom and the bed sheets folded neatly back.

She ran up to the craft and remembers seeing three large windows, in one window stood a very short humanoid with protruding eyes and four fingers on each hand, he wore a tight fitting outfit with a hood. Other people had come to see the object and stood around as if in a trance. The witness was taken inside and glided around with the short humanoid next to her. She remembers seeing two other humanoids sitting at a control panel and seeing three cubicles as well as beautiful curved walls inside the craft.

Mrs Bridget Banks and her sister saw an object maneuvering at treetop height nearby; it passed directly over them. It was “fish shaped”, gray, with a curved transparent pilot’s compartment in front and round portholes on the sides. There was a tail with 2 horizontal fins. About 25 fold colored lights around the bottom illuminated the hull. When it passed over, the witnesses felt heat and heard an ear-hurting sound. In the pilot’s compartment could be seen, from the shoulders up, 2 dark figures with very large round white eyes; 2 more occupants of the same description were seen through portholes further back.

Upon arriving home, the witness saw a “ghost like” figure floating about 50 feet above the ground at 1000 feet distance; it was about 4-foot tall and thin, “like person draped in a close fitting sheet.” It was seen only briefly when she noticed a bright white object moving about, approaching to within 200 feet before going away. It was about 20 feet in diameter and 25-30 feet off the ground. Later, she saw a “little blue green thing” about 2-1/2 feet tall and with a face with “spiky things at the tops and side of the head” look in an open door; it had stumpy arms, and quickly disappeared from sight. UFO sightings occurred about the same time in nearby Athens and elsewhere.

Location. Langford Budville England
Date: October 16 1973
Time: 2300
Gabriella Versacci was driving pass the Langford Budville exit; she could see that the road was completely deserted. She then saw the glare of a single headlight ahead, it was too bright to be a headlight and it seemed stationary. Suddenly the car seemed to lose power. The headlights flickered, dimmed and then cut out. Next the engine faltered, sputtered then fell silent. Panic-stricken Gabriella pressed her face to the windscreen, struggling to steer the car to a halt in the almost complete blackness. Thinking she could not stay there alone in the vehicle on the side of the road she climbed out the car. Fumbling with the car hood she lifted it. As she stood there helpless, she noticed a humming sound, faint at first then seeming to grow stronger. She could not see the source of the hum, as she stood facing the car door a heavy hand came down on her shoulder, seemingly pushing her down into the ground. Gabriella struggled to face her assailant and saw a tall, dark colored and metallic figure. Gabriella then saw flickering multi-colored lights and blacked out. When Gabriella came to she was standing in a field. The “robot” like figure was standing next to her and before them stood a strange bright object. Half-moon shaped, it was rounded at the top and flat at the bottom. The bright object was silver gray in color and rested on thick legs, she saw two, but there might have been more. It was about 20 ft high and forty feet across. Large, oblong windows punctuated its middle and from these yellow lights issued. Now Gabriella realized that the humming sound was coming from this object. She then blacked out for a second time. She awoke inside a strange room, which she took to be the interior of the object. She found herself in a circular room, strapped to a table in the center. Naked, and covered with a light blue blanket. Her wrists were bound to the table by what she described as “large rubber bands.” Her spread eagle legs were restrained in the same manner, with the bands holding her ankles to the cold surface of the table. The inside of the craft was freezing. She glanced over to a far wall where the “robot” stood inactive. To her right was a console covered in buttons and dials. The floor was covered in what appeared to be black colored rubber matting. A few moments later, three men that came into view proved her. Two stood to the left of the table while the third went to the foot of the table and picked up some boxes or cubes. He placed three of the objects on a rail, which ran the length of the table, one by her head, one by her feet and one in the middle. As soon as the cubes were placed on the rail they began to glow. The three men were all about the same height, five feet six inches of five feet eight inches. Fair skinned and slim in build they wore the same garments. All wore a skullcap, tied at the back of the head and ending just above the eyes. Facemasks covered the nose and mouth, so only the eyes and facial parts around them were visible. No hair was visible, but she could make out the hair bumps under the caps. The eyes were more rounded than human eyes, and seemed emotionless. All three men wore a tunic with a gray colored edging, long gloves that went to the elbows and very long aprons that fell as far as their ankles. Thick-soled boots covered their feet. Every piece of clothing was light blue in color. Throughout the episode none of the man spoke or made any other noise. They looked at each other frequently, and nodded occasionally. Furthermore they did not appear to breathe, making no respiratory noises. During the examination none of the three beings touched Gabriella. The man at the bottom of the bed took a number of gray colored instruments, which he used one by one. A small knife like implement was used to take a nail paring from her right hand index finger. A blood sample was taken with a small plastic looking bottle with tubes and wires attached. Her blanket was removed and a thin pencil-like device was used to prod and probe her and a large black rubber suction device was used on the area around the groin. Soon the examiner placed another blanket over her, which provided badly needed warmth. Noticing her frequent glances towards the now inactive “robot” the examiner now spoke to her in perfect English. The robot was a trained retriever device. It did all the manual work outside the ship. It brought specimens for examination and study. It was merely a non-thinking intelligence that was programmed to do certain tasks. The examiner spoke in a deep male voice, although Gabriella could not see his mouth move beneath the mask. His eyes never blinked, not even once. His movements appeared practiced, deliberate and precise. When he completed his task, all three men left the room together. After several minutes Gabriella caught sight of the robot again. A flashing purple colored light was coming from it. It did not move but remained by the wall. Soon one of the men came into view from behind her and walked to the far end of the table. He lifted the end of the blanket form the bottom and stared at her body. Something that something awful was going to happen Gabriella struggled with her bonds but could not free herself. The being took a small pin and placed it on her thigh. Gabriella stopped struggling immediately. The device caused numbness in every part of her body apart from her head. The being climbed slowly on the bottom of the bed and slowly and without emotion raped her. She felt discomfort but no pain. Soon the three men came into the room and released her from the table. Gabriella looked down on the floor to see her clothes before passing out one more time that night. When she next regained consciousness Gabriella was standing, fully clothed, next to her car in the deserted country road. Distraught she drove home.

A woman was abducted from her home, as well as possibly three of her children and a neighbor boy, and given a medical examination on board a craft. Carrying a “machine” of some sort, three beings lifted the woman from a couch and carried her by the arms. Her next memory was of a big, bright room with lots of “lights and buttons” and glass tubes containing liquid. She observed four or five humanoids on the craft and at least two human like beings. The humanoids did not communicate with her, were coldly efficient, and made her feel like a guinea pig. They were 40-5 feet tall, with head coverings, no noses, long fish like mouths, orange hands (gloves?) with two or three big claws or fingers that opened “like a clasp.” They had large oval eyes that wrapped around the side of the head. The pupils were big, black, and round and move a lot. Their suits were a fluorescent ‘silvery and blue,” in contrast to the three beings that took her from her home who wore shiny, bright white uniforms. During the exam she was hooked up to a machine, probed with needles, given a blood pressure test and a gynecological exam. The beings were able to read her mind. One of the humans was bald, about 55, and talked with her and helped during the exam. They gave her a shot to make her forget, and then carried her out a door to be reunited with her children. The incident took 45 minutes to an hour.

Date: October 20 1973
Time: late night
Nine campers, students led by three adults had gone to El Yunque hoping to “contact” UFOs and their occupants. They made camp high up on a mountain trail, preparing to spend a night that would turn out to be the longest in their lives. Mr. Heriberto Ramos, the group’s leader, stated that at one point during their ascent along the trial, they met three persons heading downward. There was nothing “alien” about the trio aside from the face that they all dressed exactly alike and with similar features. One of the group members, who had stayed behind, took a photo of both the other group members and the three mysterious walkers, but only a patch of mist appeared on the developed film where the trio stood. At a given moment that night, thoroughly convinced that an otherwise uneventful vigil lay ahead, the campers were surrounded by five or six vaguely humanoid figures which darted about the thick vegetation with claw-like hands and elongated ears. Some of the “monsters” blocked the precipice flanked trail that constituted the only way down from the mountain and back to the safety of their vehicles. From a prudent distant one of the creatures regarded Ramos intently. Upon noticing this, the latter tried walking cautiously toward the eldritch being hoping to show that his group’s intentions were amicable. Ramos stood less than ten feet away from the creature, and was able to describe it as having a triangular head, and “extraordinary” eyes. Amazingly, he managed to touch the strange being, which did not stir. Its skin felt neither cold nor rubbery. Almost simultaneously, one of the students lit a large, powerful flashlight in the direction where the contact was taking place, flooding the area with light. The clawed creature reacted by racing away from the scene, literally tearing a path right through the dense vegetation, which led to a 100 foot long drop, giving the startled Ramos reason to think he had frightened the being into jumping. To the man’s amazement, it reappeared instantly at the side of its fellows, which were still blocking the downward path. For endless hours until the sky began to lighten, the besieged campers were surrounded by the beings, which remained in constant motion around them. Terror had led one of the students to bang himself repeatedly on the head with a flashlight, hoping to escape the situation by passing out. Seized by an inexplicable urge, another camper expressed a desire to take a walk in the woods. Fearing for his mental state, one of his companions offered to walk with him. Before they’d taken more than a dozen steps, they found what could only be described as a glimmering, polychromatic “egg” lying on the ground. While entranced by the curious flashing object, neither one felt brave enough to touch it. Later that night, they would see it in the claws of one of the nonhuman besiegers. Was this a “bait” of some sort, its pulsating colors designed to mesmerize prey. At sunrise the campers made a mad dash for the cars they’d left parked at the bottom of the mountain. Not a trace of the alien intruders remained aside from their footprints, which were much larger than a human’s and appeared to have been made by very heavy creatures, in comparison to the smaller footprints left by the humans. Their valor rekindled by the morning light, the campers made plaster-of-paris casts of the prints and photographed them. These materials were stolen by unknown parties months after the incident, including valuable infrared prints.

A woman, Mrs. Heitfeld, awoke feeling a terrible thirst. A bright light outside then attracted her. She drew the curtains a saw a line of lights forming an arc. Each light was as large as an opened hand. There were 6 of them, separated by 120 cm from one another. She also observed another light hovering above a nearby parking lot within this light she observed a gray “ape like” creature. She awoke her 13-year old son who also saw the creature. The being was completely surrounded by a bell jar shaped area of light. No facial features could be discerned, but the witness could see a snout like feature on the face, its body was uniformly gray, it was moving its arms in a sort of jerky way like a robot. Ground traces from the UFO were later found.

About 15 minutes after the preceding encounter, the Donathans saw the same or similar pair of beings on the road. They were described as bright silver, straight in form with no features noticed except for box-like feet. The pair moved in a clumsy, flopping manner as they tried to get off the road ahead of the approached car. Mr. Donathan described this as a dancing effect. The next day imprints were found in the field where the being had been last seen.

Gary Flatter got the best view of the creatures. About two hours after investigating the Donathan story, he was searching for the beings when he came across a line of small mammals crossing the road. Then he noticed a “high frequency” sound and spotted apparently the same pair of beings in a plowed field 75 feet away. After a while he turned his truck’s spotlight on them; they turned their whole bodies toward him forcing him to turn off his lights because the glare from their suits was so great. They had egg-shaped heads, with what looked like gas masks with hoses running down to their chests. Their feet were square with a heel and seemed to provide motive power for slow jumping actions. On the final jump, they flew off “like a helicopter in feet down position.”

An anonymous woman was turning into the driveway of her home when the car lights fell on an object that was approximately 20 feet over an open area of her backyard. Something “lit up” and the light was too bright to be merely the reflection of her car’s lights. The object was about 30 feet long and resembled an airplane without wings, with an “open cockpit” at one end. Inside she was able to see three “hooded figures.” She hurried into her house and when she looked out through a window, the object had vanished.

Around 2100 about 15 people observed a very large red spherical object hovering low in the sky, which began to descend towards a pasture. The witness and two boys proceeded up the field and observed a white dome shaped object on the ground that illuminated the area, and was making a loud whirring sound. It was estimated at about 100 ft in diameter. They were about 250 ft from the object, and about 75 ft from a fence line. Walking along the fence line wee two tall figures, 7 to 9 ft tall, covered with hair, and arms hanging down past the knees, and displaying glowing green eyes. The creatures were fired upon, first tracers were shot overhead, and then live ammo was used. The larger of the two creatures turned towards the other almost touching it, and at the same time the object in the field disappeared, and the sound stopped. The creatures slowly walked towards the woods. One boy had already ran home, the other two left the field, went to the farmhouse and moved the family members to a neighbor’s home, and called the state police. When the trooper arrived he and the main witness went to the site, and where the object had landed there was a glowing area that according to the trooper was about 150 ft in diameter. He said he could read a newspaper from the amount of light that it was emitting. The farm animals refused to go into the area. One witness reported that before they left the field, the largest of the two creatures was seen in the woods about 10 ft from them, and he shot at it and it struck the fence that stood between them. Later that night the investigation team arrived in the area. Radiation levels normal, glowing area now gone, but animals still wouldn’t go near the spot. Strange events now began to take place. A farmhouse several hundred feet from them was seen by some in the party to suddenly light up like daylight for several seconds. A bull in the field and a dog seemed unconcerned about the group, and were looking into the woods. The main witness, a rather large individual while being questioned, suddenly begins to growl, throwing his father and investigator George Lutz towards the ground. The man ran into the field growling like an animal and emitting screams, one that was near inhuman. His own dog approached him as to attack, then runs off whimpering. The man suddenly collapses onto the ground. Then two of the investigating team begins to complain that they are having trouble breathing. Suddenly the air is filled with a strong odor that was compared to rotten eggs. The man as he came out of what appeared to be an almost trance-like state, began talking about visions he saw about the end of the world, etc.

A very low-pitched hum was heard, but no barking by the witness dog, or others in the neighborhood.

Carlos Argue Balvidares, 43, the manager of a country estate, was drinking tea when his son Manuel, 13, called his attention to the presence of 3 persons floating in the air over the surface of a pond 100 yards away. Balvidares went to the pond and called out to them; they “disappeared immediately, only to return to show themselves at the opposite shore of the pond, 300 yards away.” There were two men and a woman. The woman was about 5’3″ tall and had long black hair, black clothing, and white boots; the men (both of the same height) were somewhat shorter, and appeared naked and of a “sunburned” color; they may have been wearing tight fitting one-piece suits. They were blond, and their hair appeared “glued on.” All three had white complexions, wide foreheads, and small noses. They floated about with their arms held close to their bodies. On the far side of the pond rested a rectangular object approx. 35 ft in diameter and 7-10 ft high, which was luminous, and emitted a beam of light 15″ in diameter which struck Balvidares; it dazzled him and he could feel heat from it. Balvidares took his horse and rode out to the pond, but when he had got halfway to the entities, he encountered an “invisible barrier” and cold not proceed. Meanwhile the beings continued to maneuver over the surface of the pond, communicating by “a kind of shriek, like the sound made by a radio which is poorly tuned.” After an hour and a half, Balvidares mounted his horse to ride around the pond, but at that time the beings returned to the UFO, the men “changing in color to dark green and orange” as they approached it. Then the witness smelt “an odor of sulfur” and became drowsy for a few moments; when he recovered from this, the object and its entities had disappeared. On later investigation, many triangular footprints 4″ to 5″ long, showing 4 claw marks at the front of the triangle, were found in the vicinity of the UFOs resting place; the object itself left 4 triangular impressions 15″ on a side, arranged in a square 13 ft on a side. The horse “exhibited nervousness” after the event, and its hair began to fall out.

While Jose was in a nearby ranch house, Ana and her daughter stayed in the car, which was parked near the road waiting for his return. Suddenly from the left side of the car, they both heard what they thought was Jose’s voice, saying loud and clear; “Negra open the car door, I’m back.” The voice repeated the same thing again, and suddenly the girl pointed at something outside the car. Ana Dominguez then saw a terrifying looking being standing outside the car, leaning on the windshield and looking in. The creature was described as tall, thin, with a huge egg shaped head, long pointy ears, and two huge black oval shaped eyes. The being was leaning on the windshield and had placed a “hand” on it. The hand was long and skinny, with three long thin fingers, somehow resembling those of a chicken claw. No other facial features could be seen, since it was dark outside. Both witnesses now in a panic began screaming and pushing on the car horn. When Mr. Alemar and the rest arrived the strange being had disappeared. To this date, both mother and daughter are convinced that the voice they heard had been that of Jose Alemar, however they are not so sure if it was audible or telepathic.

A security guard observed a very bright, yellow, “translucent” craft 50-100 feet out over Mobile Bay and 300 feet from the witness. The UFO was just 1/2 foot above the water, silent, 5 by 5 in size. It jerked back and forth like a hummingbird. He observed four silhouetted figures that also jerked about in a corridor inside the object. A week earlier the witness had seen a blue light and observed an object every night for two weeks. In December 1973 he developed physical problems and died 18 months later.

Enrique Castillo again was summoned telepathically to go to an isolated area for a possible contact with extraterrestrials. Hours went by when numerous illuminated objects appeared, one of which detached from the rest and approached slowly in a zigzag fashion, performing an astonishing series of maneuvers before landing on three supports about 60 meters away. The other lights disappeared. This craft was quite different from the previous one, of a rather peculiar shape. A metallic ladder emerged, leaving a narrow, illuminated opening, in which a human shaped silhouetted could be discerned. Castillo approached the craft, but a deep voice ordered him to stop, and then beckoned him to approach slowly. Soon a human like alien named Cyril that he had met on a previous occasion met him at the opening. He invited Castillo to walk up the six steps of the ladder. When Castillo extended his hand to greet him, he stepped back and motioned him to stop between the last step and the door. A very bright blue flash of lighting shone briefly covering Castillo’s body briefly. He understood that the blue light was part of another cleaning or sterilizing system, quite different from the previous one. On board were two other very different beings, with “avocado-shaped heads”, dressed in one-piece, ample overalls. They smiled constantly. He went up to greet them, but they just bowed, without extending their hands. The little men were bald, with pale brunet skin, seemingly completed coated with an oil film. They were about 1.5 meters tall, well proportioned, with large normal eyes, normal ears, Greek nose, and prominent jaw. These beings, declared Cyril came from Mercury. Castillo was incredulous, knowing the immense temperatures contrasts of that planet. But he was told, “you would be astonished at the civilizations that have flourished there.” Via a spiral stairway Castillo was taken to the second level, which he found rather cramped. Cyril announced that the craft was on its way to the “mother ship.” One of the other beings took Castillo to a closet on the first floor and gestured to him to put on a uniform, which stretched to fit him perfectly. The from the control room a gigantic craft came into view. A hatch opened, from which came intense light. Inside the mother ship, Castillo was led through several passageways and in one area he noticed an emblem in high relief, of a winged serpent holding what looked like an egg. Inside this object Castillo also encountered toilet like facilities. In the hall Castillo, claims to have encountered yet another thoroughly unbelievable being, a giant of a man no less than three meters tall. His features were remarkably similar to those of common terrestrial. All was proportional in size. His skin was grayish, his hands, hairy, with normal fingers, shaped at the tips like spatulas. He was dressed in a dull gray uniform. At one point Castillo, along with Cyril and the two smaller humanoids boarded a smaller craft, which took them to a ride to different places, apparently on earth. Later onboard the mother ship, Castillo claims to have seen a robot, with some human features, and for the first time, women, with tight fitting suits and decidedly feminine features. “Their golden hair framed the most beautiful faces I had ever seen.” Castillo enthused. They were as tall as the men, perhaps 1.75 meters. Eventually Castillo was returned to an area not farm from Bogota. He had been away for about 26 hours.

4 girls 14-24 year old were accompanied as they drove from Tracy toward Montreal by a luminous white ball perhaps the size of a watermelon, which was sometimes ahead of them and sometimes behind them, at a considerable distance. They passed through a cloud of red dust that obscured their vision; shortly after emerging from this, they had to swerve to avoid a man wearing dark clothing and a lappet helmet, who was standing on the white line in the middle of the road, apparently sweeping it with a brush-room. He was short of stature; they could not see his face. After passing the “sweeper” they saw a car and 3 dark clad people beside the road. There were many UFO sightings in this region of Quebec that same evening.

Farmer Joao Rodrigues Terra and his farmhand Djalma Da Silva Faques were driving to the farmer’s house. They observed a strange, low white cloud, and then a bright orange, oval object 12 meters in diameter, 1 meter above the ground and 30 meters away. It had a cap on top and bottom. The surface was shiny and metallic with a luminous fan-shaped beam directed from the top upwards. The object continuously changed colors. They had trouble starting their pick up truck, and then could only creep along as the UFO paced them 30 meters away for ten minutes. Faques, the passenger, observed the object closely and could clearly see a small human figure inside. The truck functioned normally after the object sped away, but its new battery failed three days later and could not be recharged.

Two youths, 16 and 17 told police they had seen a ball of fire land near the railroad station. The glow went out, and they then saw something “approximately human” but globular in shape, with two eyes in a white face, and little red and yellow lights on its head. Frightened, they hid behind a wall but the entity followed them there; they pelted it with stones and ran to the police station.

Time: 0100A
A man and a woman in a parked car on the Canourge road, Mairieux, noticed a white metallic looking hemispherical object some 50 ft wide in the snow covered fields, 100 yards away. Presently a dark opening appeared in this, from which 6 beings, of 3 different kinds, emerged. First were 3 small humanoids with large heads, 4 ft tall. They had protruding eyes with conspicuous whites, holes for a nose, narrow mouths, and bulging cheeks; their arms were long. They were dressed in tight one-piece suits of metallic appearance. Each carried a dark box 6″ on a side whose upper surface bore a round white luminous “screen.” They walked slowly, with stiff small steps, and fanned out as if searching for something. Gradually they approached the road, until within 50 ft of the witnesses. Behind them, nearer to the hemisphere, stood 2 human figures about 6.5 ft tall, with light complexions and blond shoulder length hair, likewise dressed in tight fitting one piece metallic suits. Closest to the door stood a squat figure, with long dangling arms, apparently covered with dark fur, “resembling a bear of great ape.” When after about 10 minutes the small beings began to approach the car, the young woman became frightened and jump out, slamming the door, and ran back to her own car which stood close by. At this, the man saw all the figures stood still, then the “animal” reentered the object, followed quickly by the 2 humans and then the 3 humanoids, who ran back with such long, swift strides that they looked as if they were “flying over the ground.” The dark opening disappeared, and the UFO took on a brilliant metallic color, and rose vertically for 30 ft, then shot off westwards, becoming successively orange luminous, bluish, and reddish before dwindling to a point. This all happened with such speed that the young woman observed only the recession of the luminous object. The witnesses did not seek for traces in the snow. However, strange tracks in the snow were found later that morning by a Mrs Michel and her children in the garden of their house in Maubeuge, 1.1 mile away, implying a connection.

A man hunting in the area saw a strange craft on the ground with three figures walking around it wearing green suits and some sort of helmet. When the witness turned his head away for a second the craft and the figures were gone; he said they just vanished in plain sight. Around the same time a sheep herder was herding a flock in Indian Reservation land when one night while he was laying in his tent listening to his radio, he saw a strange flying craft with bright lights on it fly over his campsite and land on a hill a short distance away. At the same time his radio stopped playing. He started to get up but heard a voice outside of his tent say, “Do not get up, and stay in your tent.” He tried to get up anyway but he discovered that he was paralyzed completely and could not move. A short time later the craft rose into the sky and left the area. Then he was able to move and his radio began to play again.

Claude Vorilhon was driving alone near the volcanic mountain, Puy-de-Lassolas and had parked his vehicle in order to rest his legs, when suddenly he saw a strange helicopter like craft descend through the fog. The craft was flat underneath and had a dome on top with a flashing red light on the bottom and a very bright white light on top. It hovered very close to the ground while a door in the bottom opened and a small figure emerged. It was a human like figure with long black hair and a beard, wearing a green one-piece outfit.

Upon arising to go to the bathroom, the 28-year old witness observed from his kitchen window a small figure in the enclosed courtyard behind his house. The entity wore a close fitting, luminous green coverall and had a clear spherical helmet over his head, which was attached by a tube to a backpack. He was using an implement similar to a mine detector to examine brickbats in the courtyard. When the witness played his flashlight on the scene, the being turned toward the window and held up one hand, displaying the V-sign with two fingers. The head was dark except for two brightly luminous eyes, over which were seen eyelids that blinked by lowering over the luminous iris. The entity then turned toward the wall enclosing the yard and walked up the sides stiff legged, at right angles, clearing the top and disappearing from view on the far side. Several minutes later, a disc with flashing colored lights and a transparent dome on top, rose from the other side of the wall. Inside the dome the witness could see the little being; it rose vertically slowly, rocked back and forth and then shot off into the sky at high speed. The witness had had one other observation four months earlier, with others, on the Belgian seaside; and four months later he, his wife, and others saw still another object as they drove to Brussels.
