1974 Humanoid Reports. 1974 was almost a repeat of the incredible events of 1973, but more in a worldwide level and not concentrated in one area or region. High Strangeness was achieving new heights. All different type of encounters were reported including then a new trend that was soon to be called CE4’s, or abductions. In Spain there was the repeated encounters with landed objects and entities by a young truck driver, in the US the not to well known and bizarre Higdon abduction and more bizarre encounters with strange Bigfoot like creatures somehow related to UFOs or paranormal in nature. Nixon had resigned but something else besides Gerald Ford had taken over. Sit back and hold on to your Lazy Boy, 1974 was a wild ride. Following is a list of known entity encounters for 1974.

Both husband and wife remained as if paralyzed by the front door as the three unorthodox visitors walked away to a nearby vehicle. Scorched ground traces were found and the alleged landing site. Soon after the incident Mr. Bettex died of a mysterious disease.

One evening, while baby-sitting the witness suddenly felt a cold, creepy chill come over her, accompanied by a sense of urgency to check on the baby. The nursery was dimly lit by a small night-light. She entered the room hesitantly. A shadowy figure caught her eye. She saw a “gnome like” man, dancing in the corner near the crib. He was about as tall as a two-year-old child and was dressed in Old World clothing; knee length britches, suspenders or a vest, over a loose fitting shirt. He had longish hair, a mustache, and a beard, and was unkempt. Never taking her eyes off the queer creature, she walked slowly to the crib, and picked up the sleeping baby and cautiously backed out the door. Others had seen strange shadowy figures running about the house. Other phenomenon was also reported.

Two young women, hearing a “strange noise,” were compelled to go outdoors to their car. They found the car out of their control and were driven to a remote site, accompanied by a brilliant light source. The car stopped and they heard a weird chant began from behind the car, and could see vague, human like forms. They suddenly became extremely frightened and one girl, for reasons not clear, got out of the car. When she tried to get back in, she was unable to because of the presence of a viscous, web-like substance over the car door. They finally made their way to a local police station; returning to the site with officers, they found nothing and were escorted home. On the same night police patrols in the area reported strange lights in the sky and one patrol car encountered a massive procession of snails on the road, headed in the direction of the young ladies strange encounter. The girls experienced a repeat of their earlier experience after the police left and their fear was replaced by a feeling of guilt, as though they had “betrayed a trust” by reporting the incident to police. One girl suffered physical effects following the experiences, developing a speech impediment, and losing her ability to write. The effects were not permanent.

The young witness was camping with his family at an old military field in the area and one night was told by his mother to go empty the trash and the nearby dump. He did, but had to return in order to retrieve the trash container. As he looked for the bin he noticed a strange humanoid-animal figure standing nearby and staring at him. The creature was about 4-foot tall, reddish brown in color, with thin arms, small shoulders, and enormous and bulging eyes resembling two large black marbles. When the creature saw the witness, it dived towards the bottom of the garbage pit. In turn the witness ran away screaming from the area. Apparently he was made fun of after the encounter.

The 14-year old witness was in his backyard with a couple of family members when he heard a loud noise followed by a power outage. He ran outside and saw a Saturn shaped object 50 meters away. It was 6.5 meters in diameter and 4 to 5 meters in height. It radiated light beams of several colors and its top was transparent allowing the witness to see 4 or 5 entities. These were wearing dark frogman suits; helmets covered their heads. They were about 5 feet tall of humanoid appearance. During the observation the witness felt paralyzed and lost sense of time. When the object took off his faculties returned and the electrical power was restored.

Pranav Piyush was alone in his farm with he saw two triangle-shaped objects in the sky. They appeared to land beyond view of the witness and soon two tall human-like figures approached him. They conversed with the witness (in his native language?) and explained to him that the earth had been struck 65 million years ago by a comet and the survivors had managed to fly to Jupiter where they developed a new civilization. They then warned Piyush that another comet was going to strike the earth. Terrified the witness fell faint and saw the two figures walked back towards the direction where the triangles had vanished. As they moved away they appeared to change into inhuman figures.

Alex Franz and his wife were on their way to Mexico City when Mr. Franz began to feel extremely sleepy and pulled off to the side of the road in order to rest. His wife remained awake as he dozed off. Suddenly Mr. Franz was awakened by the sounds of his wife groaning and crying. Upon opening his eyes he saw a bright light that illuminated the cab and appeared to come from above. He attempted to assist his wife as he noticed that she held the vehicle door tightly close, so hard in fact that her nails were bleeding. The light was of a neon type and did not bother the eyes. At this point Mr. Franz managed to see a humanoid figure quickly moving away from the vehicle, moving towards the light, which was about 8 meters away from the vehicle. The figure seemed to blend in with the light and soon the light shot up into the sky and disappeared. When his wife came to, she told Alex to quickly leave the location because “some little men” had wanted to abduct them. When he was able to start the vehicle again, they noticed that 5 hours had gone by, which they had no recollection of.

Jean Guy Moude was walking through a forested area when he suddenly lost consciousness and then woke up to see several large shiny “yellow eyes” looking down on him as he appeared to be lying on a “bed” of some sorts. He was apparently given a medical examination by several aliens wearing dark diving suits. Onboard he saw several instrument panels and other gadgets, which he made drawings off. He was later levitated back to the ground through an opened hatch along with some of the aliens. Then he saw several of the humanoids entering the hovering UFO through an opening on the bottom; they appeared to have climbed up via a type of metallic cable. The craft had several portholes around its perimeter.

A clergyman camping in an isolated and mysterious area called “La Zona Del Silencio” was preparing his tent when he heard a buzzing and saw a bright glowing object descending from the sky. The witness wanted to run but could not move as the object drew closer and hovered briefly above the desert floor. The object’s light changed from a whitish blue to a red orange. Moments later the object dimmed and the outline of a metallic disc shaped object came into view. The witness stood paralyzed as three tripod legs extracted out of the lower part of the object, the object then landed. Seconds later a door appeared in the side of the craft and a stairway descended to the ground. Four figures then stepped out. They were described as humanoid about five-foot tall. Their bodies were encased in a shiny metallic suit totally seamless. They were of stocky build with almond shaped eyes, a sharp nose, leathery skin, and a tanned complexion. The beings approached the witness in very quick movements and communicated with the witness in English asking him several questions mostly about his business in the area. They also mentioned a “God.” The witness was then invited onboard the object and shown a large interior with several control panels and a device was placed on his head. Later he was released and the object retracted its tripod, started glowing, and then took off emitting a loud humming sound.

Franc Wolf was lying in bed unable to sleep when suddenly a beam of light came in through the window, shining in the center of the room. At the end of the beam a cloud seemed to form, from which gradually the shape of an old man-like figure emerged. The figure resembled what an ancient “Greek” would look like clad in a white tunic like those the classical Romans used to wear. His hair and beard were white. The figure floated in the center of the room staring at Wolf, who could suddenly no longer move. The figure suddenly disappeared as if switched off. And the beam of light gradually yielded back out the window. At this point Wolf was able to move and ran to the window to see a disc-shaped craft quickly departing the area.

A couple was driving home after dropping off some friends, when they spotted a hovering cigar shaped craft with distinct window shapes along its width. It was hovering about 30 feet above the ground. As they drove along they momentarily lost sight of the craft but as they came to a stop sign they saw the object again. This time they saw the nose of the object and what appeared to be a wide windscreen emitting a phosphorous green light with the figure of a humanoid in the middle. The wife screamed at her husband to drive off and he took off. That was their last memory of the event. Her next memory was of arriving home totally calm, having lost 12 hours of time. Apparently no hypnotic regression was attempted.

Ben a 38-year-old man was out searching for fossils in the remote Sturts Stony Desert, with a female companion. Ben told the woman to stay near the car, because she was unfamiliar with the area, while he searched wider afield. When he was about 2 kilometers from the car, he was suddenly approached by two beings that were only about one meter in height. They were human looking in many respects, with short hair, but with elongated heads at the rear. The length of their arms seemed much shorter than usual. Their faces were normal but they spoke in a rapid, unintelligible fashion. They were wearing silver suits. They beckoned him to follow, and they came to a silver colored craft shaped like a “hot dog roll,” about eight meters long and two meters high. Ben could not understand how he had not seen this object before. The beings beckoned him to enter and he bent down to do so. While small from the outside, inside the craft was vast. Apparently inside of the object, space meant nothing. There were many other similar beings inside, apparently female. Ben was offered a drink. Frightened to refuse, he drank it and passed out. When he regained consciousness he was lying on the floor of the craft. The two beings were still with him. He gained a sense of having being rejected for some purpose, and felt ignored. He was very disturbed by what he saw next. Two Caucasian-looking girls, apparently human, dressed normally, perhaps aged about nine and 12, were in something like a cage. They seemed to be in a trance. Presently, the open doorway appeared again and he stepped out. He found himself on the desert ground again and simply walked away. Back at the car with his companion, he discovered an hour and a half had gone by. He was very unsettled by this bizarre experience.

Anna Mazzanti and a friend were walking home near the local airport when they spotted a disc-shaped craft hovering very close to the ground at about 700 to 800 meters away. As both women attempted to approach the craft shot away at incredible speed and disappeared. The next day Ms Mazzanti began receiving bizarre “telepathic messages” from an entity that identified itself as being an extraterrestrial and that his name was “Vras”. After the telepathic messages, Mazzanti would suffer from terrible headaches and while receiving the messages she would go into a trance-like state. She saw another luminous object the night of November 24 1974 and felt like she had been taken onboard the craft in an “astral state”. She did not see any occupants but did see numerous apparatus & consoles inside a round room surrounded by a large viewing window through which she could see what appeared to be stars.

Martin W Barry, a Marine sergeant, was making his usual early morning 5 mile run in a park, in a driving rain, when he came up with a 7-foot tall, bulky figure standing in a slumped forward posture, long arms dangling nearly to the ground. Behind it, hovering only a few feet off the ground was an orange pulsating flying saucer. The creature’s head, with large eyes, accounted for more than half of its height, and its legs were “squashed” and “stubby.” It waddled up to Barry and struck him on the chest, felling him into a pool of water then waddled away and climbed aboard the UFO, which rose into the sky. Others reportedly saw UFOs over Santa Ana that day.

Driving toward Warneton, along the French-Belgian border, the witness experiences the failure of lights, engine, and radio. He saw a landed object 150 meters away in a field to his right; the UFO was shaped like a WWI British helmet, was 7 to 10 meters wide and stood on three legs, and had patches of orange luminescence on top with a white light underneath. Two beings were seen coming from the direction of the object, walking slowly and stiffly toward the car. The shorter entity wore an outfit with horizontal rings around the torso and a round helmet with a large, circular face plate showing a pear shaped, grayish head with no hair, round “marble like” eyes, a rudimentary nose, and a slit like lipless mouth. He held an object like a short thick ruler with a pointed tip, aimed at the car. The taller entity wore a cubical helmet transparent in form, showing a face identical with the other’s but with a small rectangular box under the chin. His suit was dull metallic gray of a one-piece coverall type, including gloves and heavy, pointed boots. He wore a black belt with a luminous disc in front and a diagonal “Sam Browne” strap from belt to shoulder, with a vertical row of “buttons” on each side of the chest. Both beings had long arms. The interior of the helmets appeared to be illuminated. A third entity was seen standing guard near the object. The two beings approached to within 4 meters of the car and the taller was seen opening and closing his mouth. The witness felt a slight shock on the back of his head and heard, simultaneously, a low pitched, modulated sound. The two suddenly wheeled around and walked quickly back to the object, which now pulsated an electric blue color on top. The three beings boarded, the legs withdrew, and the object rose slightly, hovered, then ascended rapidly at a 60 degree angle. A car was then seen approaching, whose driver said he had seen the object and its occupants. As the primary witness drove off, he continued to get poor reception on the car radio. Duration was about 20 minutes.

Leaving his job, the witness experienced failure of car lights and motor; then multicolored blinking lights descended just yards in front of his car, followed by the appearance of a blinding white oval of light approximately 6 feet in diameter, apparently showing the interior of a UFO. He could see five small occupants within; seated on high backed chairs and wearing bright colored robes and each had long brown hair that reached the floor. They appeared to be 3 to 4 foot tall, and the witness could not recall their facial features. The object brightly illuminated the surroundings and car interior. After 5 minutes, the interior light was extinguished and the object ascended rapidly with another display of colored, flashing lights. A maintenance man on the premises had noticed a failure of his “pager” radio four times between 1900 & 2200, earlier that evening although no UFOs were seen.

They walked to the nearest pier to catch a better look of the lights and began walking along the pier when suddenly two more lights became visible on their right side. Now the witnesses could see that the lights were five beings that were walking gracefully in the water. The seawater reached their chests. These beings were dressed in diving suits and their heads were covered with helmets with a mask and a tube going into their backs. The beings walked out of the water and onto the road apparently leaving the area.

An anonymous witness was with a friend at home when, at 2230, he suddenly left the house on an impulse. At a nearby power station he saw two men. “He turned around quickly, but they both disappeared.” Two hours later, he again experienced the instruction to go out and this time he saw 5-7 humanoid figures that “walked in a very strange way, some even crawling on all fours.” The witness dog reacted nervously, jumping up on him. One figure looked straight at him, and an object on it began to glow, and the eyes glowed a brilliant red. It touched the object and a brilliant beam of light shone from it. A whistle like sound was heard and the witness fled. The following evening, the witness persuaded his friend to accompany him to the site. He immediately saw the beings, but the friend could only see a vague shape.

The witness, her husband and her infant son were driving home from a friend’s house after an evening of cards; they were on their way to the city of Covington, a 20-minute drive. Her husband was driving; their son was sleeping in the backseat. She was leaning against the passenger seat window, it was a very cold and clear crisp night, and the stars were incredibly bright and clear. After about 10 minutes they drove by an old farmhouse that had a line of trees as a windbreak along the driveway. When they got past the line of trees, they saw, hovering about ten feet off the ground next to the farmhouse, a UFO. It was a 30 ft long, metallic gray, cigar-shaped object, with a line or seams on its full length half way up with airliner-like windows in a row down its length above this line. There were no running lights at all. From the side it was completely dark. The object then began following the witnesses, it seemed to pace them keeping up to their exact speed. As it came closer to the car the witness leaned out the window and looked up. The UFO was about 30 ft above them and she could see that its surface was dull and non-reflective, she could not see any lights or light fixtures. When they stopped at the next stop sign the UFO kept going and went up over the nearby hill. A few minutes later as they were coming up the next stop sign, she saw it coming down the hill towards them. It was about 10 ft off the ground and moving quite slowly. At the front was a windscreen that covered the entire upper half of the vehicle. Behind the windscreen was a dark, humanoid figure standing there as if at the controls, backlit by a fluorescent green light. Terrified she yelled at her husband to get out of there. They made a left hand turn and traveled about 50 yards up the hill and their memory seemed to end at this juncture. Her memory resumed when they were coming up on the stop sign to cross Highway 18. She was now calmed. Soon the witnesses realized that the normally 20-minute long drive had taken 2 hours and 18 minutes. Strangely the witnesses did not discuss the incident until about 16 years later. (Is not clear if a hypnotic regression was attempted on the witnesses).

She approached the children and one of them, a girl, ran away crying. The woman was described as tall, white skinned with black hair and wearing golden sandals, she suddenly vanished in plain sight. Several days later the children returned to the site and were not seen again for four days, when they suddenly appeared sound and safe. They told the adults that they had fallen asleep by a rock and later the beautiful woman in blue had again appeared to them, but this time she was accompanied by another woman and two men, also dressed in brilliant blue. The children were given fruit and candy and according to them “were taken up to the sky and walked among the clouds.” Later encounters were also reported.

Gas station attendant Domenica Delaufe stepped outside for a moment and was confronted by an incredible sight. Over a nearby field not more than 20 meters away hovered a transparent egg shaped craft ringed in multicolored lights with four larger principal lights at each end. It was silent and it had no apparent means of propulsion. It hovered about 1 meter from the ground. Even more incredible, inside the object the witness was surprised to see a naked giant human like figure about 3-meters in height apparently reclining on a brown “couch” like device. It did not move and just stared ahead. It had human like features with short dark hair. At this point three other witnesses came out of the station and saw the object and its occupant, 1 was Laurent Lejeune and two young men, Bernard & Jean Claude. Soon the object glided silently away and disappeared into the distance. There did not appear to be any instruments or devices inside the object except for the “couch” like device.

While squirrel hunting, Charles Hickson had knelt down beside a tree to eat a sandwich. Through the bush, he says, he could see part of a metallic craft apparently on the ground. Suddenly he heard a voice. “It was like a radio signal or something inside my head.” “They said, ‘Tell people we mean you no harm. You have endured. You have been chosen. There is no need for fear. Your world needs help. We will help before it’s too late. You are not prepared to understand. We will return again soon.” Hickson picked up his gun and went straight home. The same voice with the same message, came to him again a month later in his backyard.

Lucia and Edison were leaving a local cinema late at night when Edison remembered that he needed to fill up the car. Lucia reminded him that there was a gas station operating all night on the Raposo Tavares Highway. As they turned back through the side street, a mud road that in those days ran parallel to the Raposo Tavares Highway they instinctively looked right and noticed that a new road had been opened in the direction of the wall circling the town cemetery. To the right of this road there were some tall eucalyptus trees. The couple suddenly felt confused at seeing a row of large, older model cars, shining brightly as if they were brand new. To the left of these strange vehicles, some people could be seen walking about. It was dark and they only saw their outline in the half-light. Edison believed that perhaps there was some kind of spiritual (Umbanda) rites being held, but Lucia informed him that such things never happened in this region of Brazil. Curios they returned on the same road but nothing more was to be seen. The road was deserted, in less than five minutes all those cars had vanished. Their car had now stopped facing the cemetery wall. Facing the wall, Edison put on the brake, stopped the engine and used the hand brake at the same time stretched his right arm along the back of Lucia’s seat and leaned over, about to say something—at that precise moment the car started to lift up from the ground for the first time. It was as if it had gone forward about 30 cm and drew up its nose, with the two front wheels up from the ground. The car dropped down, hitting down hard on the road. Stunned the couple looked back thinking there was a car behind them, trying to push them forward. Then for the second time, the car lifted its front wheels and thinking that someone was playing a prank, Lucia opened the door so as to catch him. But the car lifted up for the third time just as she was opening the door. She immediately felt indescribably cold. She looked around but could not see anything. She slammed the door closed and felt an intense cold, as if a super frozen sponge had been sucking the base of her neck at the nape, depriving her of all energy. She turned towards Edison and saw his hair standing on end. He was deathly pale and with a great effort stammering as he did so, he said: “Let’ssss…go. Terrified, Lucia could not speak. Edison backed up quickly and hit the road going down towards the center of town. As they drove along the side of the cemetery Lucia saw someone or something in silvery white over the ground to her right. It looked like someone dressed in white with “black light” shining upon it. It was fluorescent, and about 1.30 meters high. It was wearing a kind of hat or helmet and a cape. She did not see a face or remember seeing any hands or feet. It was dark. She panicked as Edison started shouting to her not to look sideways. She had the feeling that the figure wanted to stick to their car. But strangely, the thing, or being seemed friendly as if wanting to say hello. When the witnesses arrived home a time discrepancy of about 30 minutes was noted, also their car’s electrical system had been ruined. Hypnosis failed to overcome the blockage of memory.

An 80-year old retired farmer was awakened sometimes after 2000 by a brilliant white light shining in his bedroom. Suddenly he saw “a man in white robes” standing in the room, possibly surrounded by several smaller figures. He became alarmed and the figures faded away. Going to the window, the man saw a white glowing object with windows and large wheels that lit up the area. It resembled a caravan, and he could see small figures inside it. At that moment it began ascending slowly in an easterly direction and with absolutely no noise disappeared into the clouds. The man had retired early because of a power failure in the area.

They then came upon a huge object resting on 4 legs within the light. He walked up a stairway and into the object. The son remembered various scenes apparently from inside the craft. The beings were described as humanoid with a blurry appearance, long heads, large eyes, and gray skin and about four-foot tall. One of them wore tight red pants. In a blue-lighted room the witness was shown a star map and images of a city being destroyed by nuclear explosions.

They wore shoulder length gauntlets, and one being gestured to the other, who brought out from a bag on his back a small piece of substance resembling chocolate; this he presented to the witness, urging him by gestures to eat it. The witness did so, to his own surprise; it had not noticeable flavor. They then moved off and let him pass.

Security police officer, Sgt. Michael House, was on patrol on the outskirts of the powerful communications site known as MARS station, which maintains radio contact with other military installations around the globe. A nearby microwave tower, looming like a lonely sentinel in the darkness stood surrounded by a wooded fence posted with signs advising that explosive devices, electrically operated or magnetically charged, would detonate within a certain radius. Sgt. House was patrolling the area of the abandoned sled track, when he saw something at 200-300 to his left. He saw two large blue eyes, larger than anything he had ever seen before. Their diameter had to be about 4 inches apart and seven feet off the ground. He stopped the truck and sat there watching them, it was too dark to see anybody or shape to the thing. The blue glows then proceeded toward his truck at a right angle, for about 100 yards then stopped. The hair in the back of House’s neck bristle as the “eyes” began circling and again moving closer to the vehicle. A rank smell like something rotten permeated the air. The thing moved closer again, now coming within 50 yards of the truck, but still its shape could not be discerned through the brush in the desert. At that moment the truck radio advised Sgt. House that he should precede directly back to the main base and he quickly left the area. He returned 3 hours later but there was no trace of the “blue eyes.” Rain washed out the possibility of locating any tracks the following day. House recalled that the eyes movement was extremely fast and that they didn’t bob up and down.

The object, about the size of a Volkswagen, hovered at approximately 300 feet above the hill and went through a series of right angle turns, then headed south toward Stuart. Billy Wayne Plasters and Richard N Clifton drove to the landing site by truck and observed the silhouette of a “big, tall, heavy set man” approach from a lighted area. They called out and got no answer; frightened, they jumped in their truck and fled. The light on the hillside disappeared a few minutes later.

A woman and her invalid husband were sitting on their front porch enjoying the spring weather. Then some things in the sky caught their attention. They were five saucer-shaped objects about two feet in diameter moving slowly and low in the sky. They leisurely floated in over a field across the road from the couple’s house and settled down in the midst of a herd of cows about five hundred yards away. Only one of the cows paid any attention to the small discs. It seemed to be offended by the intrusion and kept turning and walking toward one of the mini UFOs. Each time it did, the object would simply rise up, pass over the cow and settle down on the other side. The woman’s husband became upset. He got his rifle and started hobbling toward the field. The woman saw one of the objects fly very close to her husband’s head and then joined the others as they flew away. By that time her husband had reached the fence and was standing still. His hands were down at his sides, the rifle clutched in one of them. When she got to him, he was icy cold and shivering. All he could say was that one of the objects had “flashed” him with a bright light. She helped him back up to the house and he went inside and lay down on a daybed. He stayed there the rest of the day and said nothing more. The next morning the woman looked out and saw the cow lying dead next to a pond. Two weeks later her husband died. The doctor said it had been a heart attack.

Mr. Sanchez had a second encounter less than 24 hours later near the same site. Driving the same truck, he found 3 “ships” on the ground, and again his motor and lights malfunctioned. As before there were no openings in the UFO but he saw four “men” approaching him on the road. He got out and ran, and the figures pursued him; after running nearly 2 km., he threw himself into an irrigation ditch and hid as the 4 men searched the area, but they did not see him. After awhile he returned to his truck; the 3 objects were still there, but his engine would not start. When he closed the cab door the figures re-appeared, gesturing to each other; they went around the object and disappeared and it rose slowly with a humming or whistling sound. The truck then started normally. After passing the site, the witness saw that the 3rd object had again landed and he stopped and returned on foot; hidden about 9 meters distance, he saw the figures digging at the roadside with a T-shaped implement and a large horseshoe shaped tool. He could still make out no facial features. After 3 minutes he left. A few days later UFO investigators found radioactive traces and 3 12 meters circles of crushed down grass in the area. Civil guard officers also found traces.

A middle-aged man named Vallentuna was on his way home when, at a crossroads, he was compelled to take an alternate route. Suddenly a brilliant light blinded him. He threw himself into the snow but something lifted him up to a height of 30-45 feet. He then found himself at home with no recollection of how he got there. Under hypnosis he recalled seeing 4 “transparent” beings that grabbed him; he was apparently studied by these beings inside a UFO, and suffered severe shock after the incident. There may have been a second similar abduction to another middle-aged man about the same time, although information does not make clear whether they are one and the same case.

A young man, known as “Anders” was walking along a dark path when he heard a voice in his head instructing him to cross the road. At the same time a blinding light knocked him to the ground, where he lay unconscious, coming to on his own doorsteps. His baffled wife, disturbed by his condition and a mysterious burn on the side of his face, sent him to the local Danderyds Hospital where hypnotic therapist Dr Ture Arvidsson put him into a hypnotic trance and regressed him to the time of the incident. He discovered how a beam of light had floated him up into the air, while tall hooded figures touched his head with an unknown device, saying that they would meet again in the future

Guillermo Rodriguez Riesco, 47-year-old restaurant owner, was fishing in the Esla River near Moreruela Monastery when his two hunting dogs warned him that something strange was going on. He turned and saw, about 150-200 meters to the east, a dull white, plastic, hump-backed robot 2 meters tall with a round head, a neck and no arms, sliding or rolling along silently, the lower portion of the body hidden by the grass. When he sicked his dogs on it, the robot glided away up a hill. The sighting lasted 5 to 10 minutes. The witness got his cousin, a high ranking military man, who was fishing nearby, and when they inspected the site found possible traces, consisting of a set of tracks 4-5 cm wide running through the thicket a distance of 100 to 150 meters. They ended abruptly. It was estimated a body of some 80-100 kg in weight made them. The witness was dazed for 5 days afterward.

The man’s voice seemed to slow down as he repeated the same question. Frank then asked the stranger how did he know about the incident, suddenly the man’s eyes bugged out about three inches and he opened his mouth, “wider than normal” & repeated several times “I live by visions.” Frank & Kathy then got up and attempted to leave, the man then yelled at them but they ignored him. After driving for a couple of miles the witnesses saw two headlight like lights that flew over their vehicle and got behind them. They then felt a force coming from behind them, turning around they saw a large orange sphere coming up behind the car. The headlight like lights appeared next to the orange sphere along with a little man on a little black object, that kept moving back and forth. The little man was described as having a funny shaped head. The witnesses then drove on by the object apparently striking it. Then the object began following them again, they could still see the little dark man like figure going back & forth on the object. After they arrived home the object departed and did not reappear again.

A second hand report describes how an unidentified man of “high social standing” had gone out into his garden one evening. High walls surround the garden. At the far end he saw an egg shaped object of approximately two meters length, luminous white in color, resting horizontally upon the ground. Stupefied, he suddenly observed two very small beings of about 1.5 ft tall moving about the object with a mechanical gait, suggesting robots. He summoned his sister and his wife who, confronted by the sight, screamed and ran back to the house, taking the gentleman with them. Next morning he examined the site and found very small footprints near the spot where the object had rested, moving away in one direction only, toward the foot of the garden wall, where they stopped. Some vegetation near the landing site was seared.

Yoshiro Fujiwara, a vegetable farmer, reported that in the early morning he went out to see why his dog was barking and encountered a creature “like a starfish” about 3 foot high. When it extended an arm, the observer was sucked up from the ground into a UFO hovering overhead at about twice the height of a telephone pole. He lost consciousness, and came to find himself being held down by two of the creatures inside the object. He described them as having a toad like skin and said there was a foul odor. He was told not to be afraid but struggled; the craft came down to the ground, the door opened and he escaped. On that same evening, he developed telepathic “contact” with the “spacemen,” writing in the “space language.” He was able to bent metal spoons. On the evening of April 8 he, again was visited by the UFO and was taken twice around the earth and once around the moon; he was later found semi conscious on the ground. A further contact was reported on April 15.

The witnesses could see a round cabin 30 feet wide and 6 feet high containing 3 or 4 seated, helmeted persons, and a rim with red, green, and yellow lights that revolved around the cabin. There was no sound. After several minutes 4 or 5 jets of flame were emitted from its underside, and the outer rim began to turn more rapidly, with a whistling sound. The object then took off with a strong air blast that nearly knocked down the witness.

A disc-shaped spacecraft was seen hovering at a low altitude over the base. It was reportedly shot down by a US surface to air missile, and crashed nearby. The disk was seriously damaged in one section. It was moved to the US and then to the Nellis Air Force range. Apparently there were dead humanoids inside apparently killed by the explosion and impact. These were typical gray dwarf-like aliens with tiny dystrophic-looking bodies, big pear-shaped heads, dark almond-shaped eyes, and four fingered hands with claws. More precisely the object resembled two flat plates joint together, the upper plate higher than the lower one, 10 meters in diameter. The top and lower sections were flat. In the lower section the disk had a cylinder-shaped central prop that moved from inside to the outside the disk, it was encircled by a band beneath segmented by squares. The origin of the crash disk was later established as a standard reconnaissance vehicle from the Zeta-Reticuli-2 system.

Federico Alvarez led a group of college students to El Yunque in an effort to see if there was any truth to the stories being circulated about the mountain rainforest’s black reputation. Driving up to the peak in a car with its headlights off, the band of investigators had an early taste of the supernatural: a shadowy silhouette dashed across the darkened road ahead of their vehicle. No details could be made out of the figure, aside from the fact that “it was very tall.” Four of the students seated in the back seat, opened the doors, and charged out in hot pursuit, charging through the dark woods. Alvarez stopped the vehicle and joined the chase, realizing that he and his peers were running along a “path” that appeared to have been previously cleared through the vegetation. The trail led to a large stone landing or “lookout point” from which the lights of San Juan could be seen in the distance. No trace of the mysterious shadow could be found. The students decide to make for the Yokah Observation tower—a three story, turret-like structure that affords the excellent view of the surrounding countryside and the neighboring peaks. The incident with the elusive shadow had visibly disturbed some members of the expedition, causing nerves to fray. The possibility that they too might become the victims of a siege by unknown and inhuman forces was now all too real. The students devised an ingenious “tripwire” consisting of aluminum cans, which they strategically placed at the bottom of the stairway leading to the observation tower’s top. Early in the morning the cans began to rattle. Hesitantly, the students descended from the tower’s observation deck to witness an unsettling sight: the cans were moving around of their own accord, motivated by an invisible force. Some group members felt that things had gone far enough, and wanted to leave the site immediately, yet they were prevailed upon to remain for what promised to be another long night. Later on in the morning a massive, oval shape craft, some 300 ft in diameter appeared from the gap between two adjacent peaks. It remained motionless for five minutes and in full view of the students before vanishing behind one of the mountains.

It stood on four legs and had several lights on the main body of the object, gave off heat and emitted a humming or pulsating sound. A hatch folded down and a ramp slid out; a motor like noise was now audible. A 6-foot tall occupant emerged on the ramp, dressed in a head to foot kind of light colored coverall; two hoses ran from the jaw area to the back of the head, with one hose running down the back. The figure stepped briefly out on the sand and then re-entered the object, which ascended and moved off in the direction from which it came. The witness searched the landing site and found a “deep, rose colored pasted and thick liquid” in four deep landing marks; also a spot of red where the hatch had opened. Traces had been obliterated by the tide the following morning.

Joseph Susedik, asleep in his camper (with his wife and two small children), was awakened by a humming sound and a pulsating light reflected on the inside of the camper. He tried to call his wife and children but was immobilized. He saw “pinwheels of odd shaped colored lights,” red, orange, yellow and blue green, but could not recall any further details. He awoke two hours later than usual in the morning, eyes bloodshot, and body aching. He had vague impressions of having been inside an object, but could not recall any specific details. He had observed a UFO earlier that evening, with other members of his family. After this incident, he claims to have become a prolific inventor. Later under hypnosis the witness recalled being inside a UFO and described a row of gyroscopes along an inner wall—“pinwheels” of light energized the gyroscopes to form an “artificial gravity field.” He described a crew of 8 men, 7 of whom wore maroon “foil type uniforms, one a “pale blue, soft” uniform. One of his examiners looked at his eyes through a magnifying glass. He also saw a “nebulae in various colors to show concentrations of metals and minerals,” a color close up of Saturn on a coil edged screen, and 3 “black reclining type high backed seats” at the control panel.

He then hears knocks on the door and the cabin is shaken. His dog trembles, apparently terrified. Going out he sees an object resembling a shuttle or a racecar prototype moving low over a field with two beings inside. Five other humanoids walk nearby, moving with heavy steps. The beings are wearing khaki uniforms, large belts and a kind of mask on their faces. One being points a glass tube at the witness and a luminous beam of light strikes him. He is then paralyzed along with his dog. Soon the beings and the UFO go towards a forested area and vanish. The day after he sees red lights on the field, which fly away as he approaches. The witness suffers from shock and stays in bed for two days. His dog appears to suffer some discomfort for several days.

Time: 0230A
The witness and his wife were driving from Salisbury, Rhodesia to Durban, South Africa. About 6 miles south Umvuma, Rhodesia, the couple observed a figure along the road believed at first to be a police officer; the figure had a box in his hand, and the uniform was “metallic” and shiny. Almost immediately afterward a light was observed in the distance. An object appeared to pace the car for a major portion of the remainder of the journey, during which some strange and inexplicable phenomena as well as out of the ordinary psychological effects was experienced. Under deep hypnosis, the witness recalled, “a form was beamed straight to the back seat and sat there during the entire journey.” He was told that if he looked, he would see only what he wanted to see, but he did not look. But he could “see, through the beams,” the interior of the UFO, which had 3 floors, which he described in detail, and the beings in it, which had “the same basic form as humans, with large trunks, necks, hairless heads, two arms and two legs,” but who had no reproductive organs. They came from “outer galaxies,” or from “12 planets of the Milky Way.” They traveled “by time” and “will change the earth;” and there were “thousands” of them amongst us now. Among the strange effects was the couple’s impression of driving through a landscape that neither recognized, although they had traveled their planned route before; the face that during a major portion of the trip Peter had no control over the movement of their car; and the strange fact that by the time thy reached Beit Bridge, into South Africa, at 0700A, the car had used but a fraction of the petrol it would normally take to travel that distance.

Under hypnosis they recalled seeing several beings that approached the vehicle from a nearby field where a bright object rested. Both remembered touching a black box and finding themselves on a table onboard the object. They were unable to move as the beings questioned them by telepathy. Asking about sex and emotions. One of the witnesses found himself behind a glass wall observing his sister being questioned. Upon returning one of the witnesses scuffled with the beings over surrendering a black box that he was carrying. They were both eventually escorted back to the car.

Later the vehicle stopped again and both apparently went to sleep. They both remembered walking out of the car as if guided by an external force; they felt very calm as they approached a glowing white cylindrical shaped object with rounded ends. They found themselves inside the craft in a large misty empty room. Three luminous human like beings appeared and communicated via telepathy informing the witnesses that they could separate from their physical bodies at will. The witnesses also saw images of a planet with shimmering rocks but no vegetation and cities of shiny metal. The beings told the witnesses they were in search for a new world since their Sun was dying.

The figure glowed from top to bottom with a pure white light unlike any the men had ever seen. It appeared to have seen the men and started to cross the road coming towards them. Interestingly, the men got out of their vehicle and began walking towards it. The strange glowing figure then started calling to them in a high pitched modulated tone that the men could not understand, it was terribly loud. The men started yelling back at it and continued moving in the direction of the humanoid. The figure suddenly stopped, turned and ran under the bridge. By the time the men reached the area where it had run off into they saw a large glowing ball flying away from the area at high speed. It shot towards the southwest and disappeared.

The witness was driving home after dropping off a friend and was going under the I-85 over pass near Hogg Mountain Road when he heard a “whirling” sound. Emerging from the overpass he saw above him a large circular object with red lights spinning around its perimeter. The object was about 150 feet in size, and traveled basically the same direction he was driving. It was less than 100 feet off the ground, and was initially moving slow. Then it turned slightly to the east and went up over the tree line at a very high rate of speed. It was soon lost from sight. The witness then saw an entity dressed in silver standing on the road on the same side of the road where the object had been. As the witness turned on the bright lights the silver suited entity began running ahead of the witness car. Attempting to get ahead of the being, the witness noticed that the humanoid had short 10-12 inch antennas on each side of the top its head & was dressed in a wetsuit type, toe to head silver suit. Around the waist was a belt and what the witness thought was a holster. The entity incredibly ran at speeds over 65 mph. Suddenly the entity darted off into some bushes and disappeared from sight.

The witness, a captain of the Soviet Army, Alexander Alexandrov was taking part in military exercises, which included parachute jumps from helicopters. They had taken off from the Kalinov military airfield in a MI-8 helicopter. After he jumped his main parachute did not open and the automatic device that opened the auxiliary became entangled and failed to function. He continued to tumble upside down towards the ground. Terrified he could see the ground approaching, plants and several field mice running away, he also saw several persons running towards the possible impact area. Suddenly he felt a sharp jerk suddenly halting in mid-air and saw darkness around him, there was a burst of light and he felt zooming up. In a dazed state he looked around and noticed two huge hands grabbing hold parts of his parachute in mid-air, he could also see a dark face, with large dark intelligent looking eyes. It was a giant man-shaped alien figure hovering in mid-air next to him. The entity wore a transparent globe-shaped helmet; its lips were tightly closed. The humanoid possessed huge wide shoulders and hands and wore a transparent cloak on his back, which he could see the sky through it. The witness and the giant alien faced each other. The alien had a penetrating glance; his eyes were huge and glowing, somehow giving him a solemn appearance. Alexandrov could see that the alien had tight sleeves on his wrists that gradually turned into a tight-fitting coverall covering his entire body. The entity also had a triangular shaped device, metallic looking, located on the overall close to his neck, it had blinking lights of different tints. The alien moved his hand along Alexandrov’s back from his spine to his neck, he received a clear impression of the alien grabbing the remaining tangled parts of his parachute and pulling on it, incredibly the parachute dome opened and Alexander descended, falling gently on the ground. The alien waved his hand and said something in an unknown language that sounded like “Pa-Pa” and vanished into a nearby cloud. On the ground Alexander could see a bright light moving away. At this point other military personnel and onlookers rushed to his location. They asked in amazement what was that huge figure that tore from him and flew into the cloud. Some in the group saw a huge triangular craft moving away from Alexandrov, others stated that whatever it was it was rhomboidal.

Two men working at a re-fueling construction site when they noticed what they thought was a “tent” placed on an elevated surface overlooking a parking lot. The tent appeared to be illuminated from the interior. As this was in no way unusual the two men began to attend to the night’s work. As the men moved one of the diesel trucks towards the gate entrance they were surprised to see that the vehicles light reflected off the tent. Very surprised and puzzled when the realized that the supposed tent was an apparent metallic object they temporarily ceased their re-fuelling activities drove down to the entrance gate and parked. Exiting the truck one picked up a tire iron, the other a thick piece of wood. However the men weren’t able to explain why they did that as no discussion took place. They both cautiously climbed up the sloping and uneven rock surface towards the “tent” that had attracted their attention. When they got to within 25 -30 ft of the object several things suddenly happened. Just as they became aware that they were looking at a craft of some kind. It was about 15 ft in diameter, 8 ft high, flat on top and had a dome and appeared to be about 4 ft off the ground. It was totally silent. What also held their attention was a black ball that moved around the interior of the dome at a dizzying speed. The two men also had the impression that “people” were walking around inside the craft. As they attempted to take all this in, and at the same time seek a rational explanation, they were suddenly startled by a loud foghorn type sound that halted them in their tracks and clearly implanted the instruction to “stop” in their minds. Without any exchange of conversation they both immediately dropped the weapons they had been carrying turned around and calmly walked back to the diesel truck. The foghorn continued to sound loudly every 4 seconds but they still had no accompanying sense of fear. Only upon re-entering the truck did an acute sense of fear overcome them, whereupon they voiced an unanimous “let’s get out of here” and promptly drove back down the mountain to their base without stopping at the obligatory additional sites to complete the night’s work

A student, D.X, had taken his parents camper out to the Dunes where could study quietly for his end of term exams. Taking a break from his studies, he strolled along the beach near Cap Blanc Nez. Topping a dune, he was surprised to see, at its base, a cube shaped object, about 3 meters per side and aluminum in color, sitting on a slender, black tripod landing gear. No other features on the object were apparent. The ground at the site was marshy and muddy. Standing next to the object were two human like beings a little over 4 ft tall, wearing one piece suits of a shiny, gray-white color, almost a metallic sheen to them; a slight fold or crease ran from the neck to the stomach. They wore tall narrow helmets on their heads with faceplates that showed about three quarters of their faces. Their eyes were very large, their noses long and thin. Their hands were covered by what appeared to be inflated mittens. The witness did not notice their feet. One was about ten meters to his right, the other to his left. The one on the right circled around the object and had no sooner rejoined the second when a third entity appeared. He was much taller than the other two, at least two meters in height (6’6), and he came from behind the object, around the left side, and stood near the first two. Unlike the smaller beings, he wore no helmet. His features were human, and he had long blond hair. One of the smaller beings then made sounds coming from deep within his throat, which seemed to have a hypnotic effect upon the witness. At that point, the witness is unable to recall what happened next, as he appears to have “blacked out.” When he came back to his senses, everything had disappeared. He was troubled about not being able to recall what had happened to him. He could find no traces of the object and the three beings at the site.

Suddenly he saw three large headed figures come around the side of the house, stepping up to the porch and entering the house. The beings then stood in front of the witness bed gazing at him. The beings approached even closer and began to hop up and down as if excited about something. Eventually the beings took the witness outside. There he met a different alien that appeared more wrinkled and somehow older. The being communicated by using telepathy assuring the witness that he would not be harmed. He was then led to a nearby bean field and into a landed object with a pyramid shaped entrance. Inside he saw a huge circular room, lighted by a brilliant white light, and was then made to lie down on a cot where he was given a thorough examination including his sexual organs. That same night a neighbor had seen a huge fireball like object lift up from the bean field.

The witness, an elderly farmer, noticed an elongated luminous object in the sky which ejected a “falling star” that approached within two miles of him and hovered half a mile up, appearing as a red luminous sphere. Later, this sphere appeared to land behind trees several miles away. At 0300A the witness went out with his dog and walked toward the apparent landing site. He heard a number of dogs barking, and a voice yelling, “shut up!” which stopped them. He sat down and waited until 0600A, and then went to the site and found “an area of burnt vegetation for a distance of 200 yards.” When the witness was subsequently hospitalized for paranoid schizophrenia, he was able to recall further details; he had approached to within 300 yards of the landed object and observed it through binoculars. Three of four “men” 8-foot tall or taller, wearing glowing “silver” suits that covered them up to their necks, came from behind the object and “floated” to the ground. He could see no facial features. Then a chute emerged from the object, and down it came a number of cylindrical metal “packing cases.” Next about 40 head of black cattle came down the chute and were driven away by normal looking men, with dogs.

When his headlights were turned on, the UFO would approach, and when they were extinguished, it receded. The object hovered above the farmhouse he entered, lighting the area “like daytime.” It rotated as it hovered, with a slight back and forth, pendulum motion; no sound was heard. About 10 meters thick, the UFO was surmounted with a conical turret, which emitted a brilliant yellow light. Inside the turret were “3 men more than 2 meters tall, moving stiffly, with something like helmets on their heads.” The object was in view for more than an hour and a half and was seen by others; it departed as the sun rose.

Dolores, Maria, and Isabel were walking along a darkened street on a dark and cold night. Suddenly at about 300 meters away they saw descending slowly from the sky, in total silence, two bright red blinking lights. These lights remained suspended a few feet above the ground near some woods. Moments later the red lights disappeared and in the area that had originally separated them, a bright yellow rectangular late became visible. Soon after two dark man-like figures appeared, one on each opposite side of the bright yellow rectangle. These figures began to walk slowly towards each other; they passed each other and proceeded to go in opposite directions, “in movement similar to soldiers on guard duty.” These figures walked back and forth for several minutes. Soon the yellow rectangle began to diminish in size, until it completely disappeared. Again the two red blinking lights appeared and rose up disappearing at high speed into the night. Two days later a local woman had gone to retrieve several laundered blankets from the lines and was stunned to discovered that all had been bizarrely marked and painted in strange black symbols, some resembling numbers other strange animals. She was unable to wash this “stains” off. The source feels that there is some type of implicit connection to the earlier UFO sighting.

Three men were chatting alongside a highway after one had just made some purchases. They suddenly observed a luminous object flying slowly in the distance, descending toward a hilltop. One of the men left the others and drove off in his car toward the direction in which the object had settled. He was able to approach the site to within a few hundred meters, and saw a luminous white, hemispherical object, wider than it was tall, with two large red lights on its surface. The terrain was rough, and he was unable to see the base of the object. While he observed through binoculars, he saw two heavyset beings moving in front of the white luminous object; they were dressed in heavy coiled outfits that made them resemble the “Michelin Tire Man.” They appeared to have round helmets on their heads. He was unable to see legs or feet. At that moment he heard some shots; thinking that someone was firing a gun at him, he hastily retreated to his car and drove away. The shots were actually fired by a “notorious poacher” who was parked in his mobile home less than a km from the landing site. No police action, it seems, was instituted against the man. The primary witness, highly regarded in the area, did not want his name associated with the incident. There had been other reports of objects seen in the vicinity of the same hill both prior to and after the June 74 encounter.

Both went into the living room, where they saw outside 3 more ‘stiff moving” beings, 6’ tall like ‘robots,” examining an unoccupied nearby trailer. During the next 3 hours, the couple saw at one time as many as 15 of these entities, lined up parallel to an adjacent creek; they held this formation more than 5 minutes, then all moved at once. The object was domed, with red and white lights at the top, and encircled about the base with orange lights; it cast yellow beams of light onto the ground. The figures were described as having brightly red glowing horizontal bars, like toasters elements, across their torsos, and displayed no visible facial features. They appeared to “float” above the ground rather than walk; no footprints were later found, but investigators discovered and photographed 3 sets of tripod imprints, presumably left by the UFO, on the far side of the creek. Grass in these areas was swept in “nest” fashion; after mowing, this grass was said to grow twice as high as grass nearby. Several flat pieces of a “strange substance of white color” similar to plastic were found where the “robots” had been seen.

Three men, all train dispatchers, were in the office of the railroad at Tandil when they saw at the window a “strange being with white skin, a silvery helmet which seemed fastened onto his head, and dark goggles.” The face was phosphorescent and ha a little beard that oscillated as if were alive. The being had a silvery breastplate; from its sides came flashes of colored light in the form of a “Z.” After a short time it began to sink down and disappeared below the window frame, leaving red, yellow and green flashes of light. When the witnesses ran outside there was no one there. At the site were found saucer-like circular imprints a half-inch deep.

Two young motorcyclists were cycling near the train dispatcher’s office when their bikes were suddenly turned and halted by some unknown force, throwing the riders to the ground and injuring one slightly in the knee. They saw a figure at 5 meters distance that resembled the entity described by the 3 dispatchers completely, although they knew nothing of the previous report. After viewing the figure for several seconds, it “seemed to explode without a sound” and vanished in the air. No UFO was seen and they did not report the incident until a month later, when it came to the attention of the UFO investigators.

Young Bolivian student Lucio Quevedo Lazarte was sleeping in his room when a noise coming from the living room woke him up. Going to investigate he was confronted by a man with very short white hair, wearing a tight-fitting shiny black outfit that ended in a closed turtleneck. On his arm he wore a bracelet and his hands were enclosed in dark gloves. He also wore a strange metallic belt with several sphere and rhomboid shaped object clinging from it. Lucio at first thought that the stranger was a thief and begged him not to steel the curtains. The entity answered him by saying: “I could changed that what you call a curtain for something of more value.” At that moment the humanoid took out of his belt one of the rhomboid shaped objects and placed it in front of Lucio’s face, at this time Lucio lost consciousness. Later he woke up from a kind of trance and the stranger had already gone. He went back to bed and covered himself completely even though he was unable to sleep after that.

The next day, Lucio woke up in his bed stiff, pale and unable to move. A local police doctor attended to him and concluded that he had some type of virulent disease. He woke up around noon, seemingly returning to normal. Around 1500 he suddenly got up from bed and climbed up on top of a bunk and proceeded to jump out the window. His brother Julio saw him and ran quickly to assist him, but to his surprised he could not find Lucio anywhere, not a trace of him. The police was called and they searched for him throughout the afternoon. Around 2100 a scream was heard: “He is here!” Everyone ran to the location and found student Donato Perez on the ground with Lucio lying directly on top of him. Donato explained that he saw Lucio being accompanied by two men that upon seeing him dropped him to floor and vanished. Lucio’s clothing was dirty, and his shoes stained with grayish volcanic sand. During a medical examination it was discovered that his fingertips had triangular shaped scars on them. A couple of days later he was able to recall what happened and remembered that as he fell out of the window two short humanoids grabbed him and took him flying to the nearby Taapaca Volcano. There they entered a landed object and inside he saw additional humanoids (not described). Later the same 2 short humanoids took him back and that’s when Donato saw him arriving. In the area around the Volcano investigators found several ground traces.

Two witnesses had gone out looking for Indian caves near their cabin in a very isolated area. Towards the evening they heard weird metallic “clatter” like sounds. Thinking the noises were coming from the cabin they went to the cabin to investigate, it was getting dark at that point. Soon they saw lights flashing on the other side of the ravine. They decided to go through the trees and investigate the source. In a clearing they came upon several metallic “drum like” objects on the ground & what appeared to be sandbags or body bags lined up next to them. Frightened they ran back to the car to leave. In the car they saw what appeared to be large tear shaped shiny eyes, gold in color, that were floating around inside the vehicle. They then ran in the direction of an old house about 2 miles away, as they neared a haystack they saw a weird furry animal, which they called a “monkey spider,” about 3 1/2 foot tall, 2 1/2 foot wide with 6 legs. It was jumping up and down on the haystack. They ran back to the cabin and shut themselves in. They looked out the window towards where the lights where, across the ravine, & noticed that they were blinking on & off. The furry “animal” was now crouched right underneath the edge of the cabin window. Then they saw about 20 small men wearing white coveralls. These were about 3 to 4 foot tall. They started coming down the edge of the ravine, from the direction of the lights. They approached in a single file, marching through the trees & 2-foot tall grass. The little men approached the cabin t the edge of the tree line, 2 of them crouched down and crawled closer to the cabin. The witnesses went outside in order to get closer to the men, and perhaps communicate. Over in the trees they saw the eyes like the ones in the car, moving around within the foliage. All the time both witnesses could still hear the metallic “clatter.” One of the witnesses attempted to get close to little men, but these moved back & did not communicate with her. Then both witnesses decided to go back inside the cabin. Later during the night, small “train like” objects flew around the cabin above the ground. They carried small flashing lights on them & emitted a whooshing sound. Later, sometime during the night, they saw in the distance down a valley what appeared to have been a bright star. At times a bright light would come out of it. Later on they saw red lights flashing on the side of the bright light. At times the light would shine a beam of light toward the ground. By morning they heard a whooshing sound, ran back out and everything was gone. Looking around the cabin they found areas of flattened grass. The grass was trampled all around the cabin. At no time did the witnesses notice any facial features on the little men. The little men had walked normally, but would always stay near the tree line.

A hypnotist regressed the percipient to the time of his first encounter involving amnesia of 1-3/4 hours. He related seeing something big visible from the middle up to the top and which put a hand on his shoulder. The creature (later described as dark brown with friendly eyes and unmoving mouth) communicated with his mind that he wanted to get away from hunters, that he had a leader, and that he was willing to share fruit. The percipient saw a bunch of creatures looking down on him and he was mentally told that they were here before we were and that we are ruining their planet. The percipient declined any subsequent hypnotic regression sessions because it was “too much of a hassle”.

Mrs Moira J, a schoolteacher vacationing in Ontario, was at a lodge near Bancroft, by a lake. She had retired early and was reading in bed when she was overcome by intense vertigo, tried to get up to go to the bathroom and fell unconscious on the bed. When she came to, she discovered two strange figures standing at the foot of her bed. The room lights were out but the scene was lit by an unknown source on the floor to the sides of the figures. From foot to neck they were “wrapped” like mummies, but heavy set in the chests. There followed an exchange of information by telepathic means that lasted for perhaps half an hour; among the information was their disclosure that their home planet had an atmosphere twice as rich in oxygen as ours, that they had a monogamous social system and had no need for money, and that our planet was currently under the close scrutiny of about 50 alien civilizations with others that were less intensely interested in us. At the conclusion of the meeting, they left by the door to her room. She noticed that the lights were out in the hall before again losing consciousness. When she came top, she found that only 40 minutes had elapsed. Just prior to retiring, the witness had seen from her room window, a horizontal row of multi colored lights hovering motionless over the far side of the lake.

A couple and their 10-year old daughter were driving down a long grade when their lights went out and their motor stalled; the husband braked the car to a stop and the lights came back on. At that time they saw, immediately to the right along the road ” between the front door and the front of the hood,” a figure standing by the road; about the size of a man, to the wife “it didn’t look like a man, it was just something blue.” They both experienced a tingling sensation “all over, like being shocked by an electric mixer or something.” They drove on, but the husband wanted to go back to see what it was; his wife loudly demurred.

M Moret and his wife saw a round black object in the sky, outlined by a faint white luminous corona, about 200 yards away; it slowly descended, to hover 60 ft above the ground. The ball split vertically into 2 “half moons,” one of which moved away & was lost to sight, while the other remained. A sort of veil was drawn across it, and 2 “cosmonauts” clad from head to foot in whitish gray metallic material, wearing large helmets, were then seen moving in it. The witness watched them for 40 minutes, during which time the UFO remained stationary. The diameter of the original ball was about 25 feet, and the Ufonauts were estimated as five-foot tall.

While driving on a date from Jacksonville to Callahan, Lydia Stalnaker, with an unidentified male companion, observed a bright flashing light moving above the trees to the right of the road. Her companion decided to try and follow the light to a point where it disappeared behind the trees. As they approached the site, Lydia felt cold and began to shake, asking that they turn back. He proceeded and a feeling as if something were smothering her made it difficult for Lydia to breath, making her fearful. The next thing then knew, they were on another road, headed back to Jacksonville, and it was about midnight. They could not account for the missing 3 hours. During the next few days, Lydia was ill, suffering from various physiological afflictions, including severe headaches. These passed in time, but she found herself becoming more and more emotionally unstable, until it began to affect her business and her personal life. In the spring of 1975 she sought professional assistance, which included using hypnosis as part of her treatment. Under hypnosis, she told what had allegedly taken place during the missing 3 hours. They had encountered the landed UFO and she had been compelled to go aboard the object. On board, she was strapped to a table, which was adjacent, at the head, to another table; upon which was a second woman was lying. Both their heads were enclosed in some sort of machinery, or device, and the tables began to spin. She passed out, and when she came to, the tables were slowing down, and she felt something warm pass through the top of her head into her body. The device was removed and she was told that the other woman, who was named, Antron, had been transferred into her body, and that she was to act as Antron’s host body for a specific period of time. The aliens appeared to be pleased with the results, and helped her off the table. She was assisted back to the car where she found her friend unconscious. The next thing they knew, they were driving back into Jacksonville. Her companion that evening disappeared shortly after the incident, and she had not been able to locate him since them.

On August 25, the witness and her husband saw a UFO over their goat farm; two days later, the object returned. Running down the driveway to meet it, the witness saw the object descend to about 15 or 20 feet; it played a circle of bright light around her. The object was cigar shaped with a transparent bottom, through which the witness said she saw one man and two women; one of the two women was the same one who had visited her earlier, and she smiled at the witness. The object took off rapidly as the witness daughter approached. By morning, the witness was suffering from severe physical symptoms and was hospitalized; she was bleeding from the kidneys and was seriously dehydrated; she dropped from 130 pounds to 90 in a matter of weeks. Under X-ray, she said, her insides were “glowing.” She was also found to have a “crease” or ‘dent’ in her skull that was not here prior to her “contact.” She claimed to have become increasingly “psychic” after her experiences.

Antonio De Azevedo, an angler, was on the beach with his wife when they saw a discoid object with varicolored lights land close beside them. It was shaped like “two plates with the rims stuck together.” The vivid lights temporarily “paralyzed” the observers. From the object emerged “3 strange short beings wearing greenish spacesuits;” their faces “seemed to reflect the green color of their clothes.” Conversing in a strange language, they quickly “examined” the angler and his wife, then seized the latter and took her into the object, which took off at incredible speed.

She could hear what sounded like some unknown type of music emanating from the object as it landed only about 3 meters from the witness. As the craft landed a door opened and three 2-meter tall men with long blond hair and wearing dark tight-fitting blue flight suits emerge. Using friendly gestures, the strangers invite the witness onboard the craft. Afraid, she refuses and runs away from the area and does not see the object and strangers depart. It took several years before the witness was able to speak about her experience. She has a good reputation in town.

The witness was driving through isolated area when suddenly the car and everything around him began to glow with a pulsating blue light. The radio also went completely dead. He stopped the car and opened the car door. He saw hanging in the sky, not making a sound, what appeared to be a cone-shaped object. Blue and red lights were flashing around the top and a spiraling blue light was descending from the bottom section. A very peaceful and relaxed feeling came over the witness as the object made a sharp turn and disappeared over a nearby hill. He sat looking towards the hill when a pulsating little light appeared in the sky behind it. He felt drawn towards it and left the car walking towards it. As he got closer, the blue lights became brighter and as he looked over the top of the hill he saw a cone shaped object standing on four legs, which seemed to be adjusted to the contours of the ground. The blue and red lights had stopped flashing, but the spiraling blue light was now coming from what appeared to be a window around the top of the object, which was enormous in size. Three more objects were off to one side; one of them began to move toward the witness, and when it got close it looked like a very tall man wrapped in tin foil and with something black over his head. At this point the witness felt frightened, but was unable to move, as his eyes seemed drawn toward a black crest on the being’s chest. When the figure got to within a few feet, he noticed that the crest was sort of a large metallic triangle with a black snake on it. His next memory was of being seated in the car, driving under the overpass. Just then the radio announcer gave the time as 0330A. There was a 3-hour discrepancy in time.

Suddenly some movement in the backyard caught their attention. They saw something flying over the neighbor’s fence to their left. It floated up over the fence, across the yard, and over the fence to their neighbors. They described it as a little man-like figure riding on what appeared to be a miniature motorcycle. He appeared to have been dressed in black, and looked human. They ran outside to peek over the fence and did not see the figure anymore.

Late in August, while driving on her early morning paper route, the witness observed a red pulsating object at treetop level. When two beams of light emerged from its base to play across a nearby cranberry bog, her car engine “fluttered” and the car radio emitted much static. On either this occasion, or the following, the car interior became extremely hot and witness felt nauseated. Shortly after the above while driving in the same area as her previous sighting, the witness heard a voice “inside her head” telling her to run left at the next intersection, which she did. Then her car radio went out and the motor died. She saw four humanoid figures, each standing upon a “small surface vehicle” resembling a Roto Tiller, darting up and down the road a few inches above the surface. One figure approached her and requested her, telepathically, to open the car door; when she did not, all four doors flew open at once. The humanoids, after inspecting the interior of the craft, requested the witness to make certain arm movements, then to bend her head forward. Looking at the back of her head, one being said, “Yes, you are different,” and touched the spot with something that left 5 small puncture marks. He then “told” her that there were thousands of ships that have been visiting earth for many years and many people who have been examined by the occupants, voluntarily or otherwise. They come from a planet whose name resembled “Omius” or “Omnigus;” there was a “mother ship” at that time in Scituate Harbor. In reply to her own questions, the examiner said that she was not permitted to touch them or to board one of their ships, but he promised that she would see a ship subsequently; she was advised that she would suffer headaches for some weeks, which proved to be true; he also said that she would “not like to look upon their faces.” They departed and she arrived home an hour and a half later than usual. The figures were 4-5 feet tall, with small heads in transparent helmets, through which she was able to see only “small, beady, very shiny eyes.” The spokesman had two stripes on the upper part of his arm; the other 3 had stripes that were longer on their sides, just above their waists. The leader had a buckle on his belt upon which was a wavy line. She was extremely upset by this encounter, and told only her husband, who gave details to the investigator. On the night following this encounter, the witness again experienced E-M effects in her car as a large, disc shaped object with multi-colored lights descended; 3 landing legs extended from the bottom, which passed barely inches from the windshield of the car; an insignia was observed “resembling mathematical symbols.” After hovering briefly, the object shot straight up and vanished. The witness refused to cooperate in any investigation.

The witness felt in a jovial mood but he suddenly became angry and attempted to grab one of the short beings; but he became paralyzed and could not move. A being with large black slanted eyes and a blue gray complexion walked up to him and stared at him. He then found himself lying on a table and surrounded by several female type beings that appeared to be wearing surgical caps. The beings seemed to be doing several things to him. One recollection was of sitting on a hard steel stool and complaining about it. Two beings then walked into the room and told him that he was to be returned home. He was led to a circular hallway and some type of hatch opened up. He was then told to jump, that he would be safe. The witness jumped and he felt cushioned and then something picked him up, straightened him, and dropped him down through his roof. He was laid back in bed and remembers seeing a vivid white light coming through the roof, he could hear a whirring sound and could see a little being going up the light kicking his legs rapidly. The being eventually went up into a gray hovering object. This being wore a tight fitting metallic outfit with a collar and black boots. He was heavy set with a broad forehead and rounded head. The eyes were round with colored irises, darker on the outer edge. He had prominent nostrils on a pug nose and long arms down to his knees.

A 16-year old youth was awakened in his basement room by a loud noise like a sonic boom. A few minutes later he saw a bright purple light flashing outside his basement window, lighting up the interior of his room. Neighborhood dogs were carrying on, although the usually chirruping crickets in the basement were now silent. About 3 minutes after the purple light was seen, a bright white light the size and shape of a baseball passed in front of the window, and the young heard a “scratching” sound on the screen door to the yard, and the purple and white lights again shone in the window. Shortly after, hearing a “tapping” nose outside, the witness got up and looked out the window and saw, standing between two garbage cans, a 3-foot tall figure carrying a purple light like a flashlight. He yelled and dashed upstairs, just as “an enormous gust of wind” hit the house. The strange sounds had awakened two girls in the house, and the following morning a dark scorched mark 3 feet in diameter was found on the concrete patio.

Edmona Toews & Nuria Hanson were driving home to Anchorage, Alaska by the Alcan Highway, and were on Steamboat Mountain when they saw a bright light across the valley. Another light appeared above it & descended with an oscillating movement, becoming 3 times the size of the full moon before shooting back up again. The light on the mountainside was seen to be hat shaped with a row of yellow luminescent portholes; they estimated it as 90 ft in diameter. They parked and watched for 45 minutes as the grounded object became orange luminescent and moved about 100-150 ft, while the aerial object 3 times approached it & then zoomed back into the sky. Not long after they had started north again, Edmona noticed that the car was driving itself—her efforts to guide it or to accelerate were fruitless, and the car proceeded at 25 mph. During this period it apparently used no gasoline. Noticing a shadow on the road ahead of them, they rolled down the windows and looked up, to see a fluffy white cloud 20-30 ft above the car, casting a shadow from a light source above it. This was evidently what was controlling the car. When they arrived at Muncho Lake Lodge, 100 miles beyond where they had seen the UFOs, they found it closed, but a dark haired, bearded young man walked up and asked for a ride to the next lodge, 80 miles further on. He seemed lightly dressed as the temperature was near zero. As the back seat was full of luggage, he said he would sit on Nuria’s lap. He gave his name as “Gordon.” They started north again, and Nuria noticed that the young man was weightless. He then sat between the 2 front seats, but Edmona observed that he actually sat in the air, with his rear and several inches above the surface. A moving light, below treetop level, was again seen. The young man asked them if they believed in flying saucers, and also questioned them about angels. When they arrived at Fireside Inn about 0400A, Gordon got out and simply disappeared. There was fresh snow on the ground, and there were no tracks on it. It was not until they had driven all the next day, and had arrived at Watson Lake, that the strangeness of what had happened finally penetrated to them. Edmona realized that “Gordon” had resembled her husband Jim, whose middle name is Gordon. On the next day they noticed that snow was falling everywhere except in front of the car, where the road was dry. They looked up and saw that the cloud was again above them. It stayed with them also on the 21st, and after dark a light paced the car. Just before they arrived at Edmona’s home in Anchorage, the light blinked on & off 3 times, described a huge arc, and departed.

At one end of the cone he could see a dark area, possibly a door or port. There was no sound; he could hear no crickets or other natural night sounds. He suddenly saw a figure on the ground beneath the object, behind a picket fence; the being was human in shape, taller and thinner than normal, and appeared to be covered with short, wire-brush like hair. The entity loped slowly across the ground in the direction of the witness, who fired a warning shot; the figure then turned and with 20 foot strides, headed back toward the object, which then descended and engulfed the figure in one of its leaps. The witness fired again as the object ascended rapidly.

Feeling a “tingling” sensation, he turned and saw a strange being more than 6-foot tall standing in shade nearby; the figure was dressed in a tight fitting black jumpsuit that covered him from neck to feet. He had coarse hair, like bristles, standing straight up from his head; two antennas like rods extended from his head as well. He had small eyes, no eyebrows, and no chin—his head just “narrowed” into his neck. He was bow-legged; the witness could see no hands, but his arms were long and ended in rod-like appendages that were used to manipulate things. He wore a wide belt; at the buckle were a 6-pointed star and a “mysterious yellow emblem.” The being approached and asked Higdon if he was hungry, and tossed him a packet of pills which Higdon swallowed without conscious volition. The being then pointed an arm at the witness, who immediately found himself within a transparent, cubical “craft” in company with the five elk, and two additional humanoids. He was told they were en route to their home planet, some 163,000 light years away. They put a helmet “with a wire sticking out” on his head and “shortly thereafter” arrived at the apparent destination, where Higdon could see a tall tower “similar to the rotating restaurant atop the Seattle Space Needle.” Intense light irritated his eyes and made them water; he was told our sun had the same effect upon them. He was escorted into a large building and placed before a screen like device for the purpose of a physical examination. Following this he was led back to the “traveling cube,” through whose transparent walls he was shocked to see, standing in a group, three human adults and two young teenage children. The return trip commenced and the next thing he knew was that he was back in Medicine Bow Park, cold, disoriented and in a state of near hysteria. About 1830 he stumbled upon his truck, now three miles from where it had been parked, and stranded in a mud hole. He sent a call for help over his CB radio, but it wasn’t until nearly midnight that Sheriff Ogburn and Deputy Sheriff Tierney found him and towed out his truck. He was in a state of panic, shouting, “They took my elk!” and he was taken to a hospital, very near nervous exhaustion and suffering from intense eye irritation. In the hospital, X-rays subsequently showed the apparently miraculous disappearance of old TB scars on his lungs. On the same night of his recovery, before he was found, Higdon’s wife, and Mr. & Mrs Don James observed red-green white flashing lights moving back and forth over the area being searched. Under time regression hypnosis, Higdon recalled additional details about his voyage, including the presence of a group of humans on the alien planet, the name of his captor (Ausso One), and the reason the aliens were visiting earth; “to hunt and fish for food.”

Location. Aveley Essex England
Date: October 27 1974
Time: 2210
John Avis, 29, his wife Elaine, 25, and 3 children, were driving home to Aveley, traveling southward along Hacton Lane and the Aveley Road when they saw an oval pale blue light to their left. This light traveled with them, and presently crossed the road in front of them, about 500 yards away. About a mile further on, they suddenly came upon a bank of thick green mist covering the entire road, 8-9 ft high. At this moment the car radio started crackling and smoking, and John pulled out its wires. The car’s headlights went out, and they entered the mist. In the mist “it was very light,” and they felt very cold; there was a dead silence. After what seemed like a second or two, there was a jolt, and the mist was gone; the car was now half a mile further along the road. Elaine’s first impressions were not until it had traveled another half mile. One of the children was still awake, and the other two still asleep. When they reached home, they found that the time was not about 2200, as it should have been, but about 0100A. Three hours had somehow been lost. After this, numerous odd things happened to the family, among them a nervous breakdown before Christmas that forced John to give up his job; also, John, Elaine, and two of the children all gave up eating meat, and John and Elaine gave up drinking alcohol. John, a heavy smoker, gave up smoking completely. There have been disappearances of articles in the house, a loud droning noise frequently heard after midnight, and clicking noises heard in the living room and bedroom, with other phenomena. The telephone acted peculiarly, etc. On one occasion one of the children claimed he saw a “man” standing beside his bed dressed “like a clown.” John had seen a UFO on a highway in 1968, which had made the lights and engines of several cars fail, causing a collision to occur; also, just before or just after the green mist incident, he had seen by daylight a large cylindrical silver object pacing an aircraft. John had “odd dreams” from which he could remember being operated on, “or something similar,” by “gnomes;” Elaine could remember a dream in which she was lying on an operating table, with a person of small stature in a white coat standing beside her. Later Elaine remembered John, herself and one of the children standing beside a car in a large room with curved walls. Walking around machinery were men in gray one-piece suits. Inside another room, containing the operating table, was “a small ugly looking person.” Later while John was under hypnosis he remembered that as the car entered the mist, he found himself in a big room where tall “peaceful” beings, in one-piece colorless suits, told him not to worry about the children. They had pink eyes and communicated by telepathy. They put him on a table and ran a “honeycombed” bar like instrument, 10″ by 30″, over his body. He asked where they came from; they showed him “a map but not a map”, and gave an explanation of which he could remember only “Phobos.” They travel, he was told; almost instantaneously;” they explained how, but he could not understand. A small being was present; it had fur like covering and made chirping sounds; it served the tall beings. In a second hypnotic session, John remembered that when the car entered the mist, a white beam cut through it, and lifted the car. The next thing he knew was that they were in a very large room. Here an “examiner,” “smaller than us,” with big eyes and a mouth “not like ours”, examined him. The tall beings had no visible mouths. Their propulsion system used a magnetic “vortex.” He encountered only 3 of these beings, and only one communicated with him. When asked the reason for the being’s visit to Earth, he replied, “No visit, they are here always.” Asked where they came from, he said, “There was no need for them to say,” and that they have no need to return home; “they have more than one base,” he said. After being brought out of hypnosis, he said that at this point he felt prevented from saying anything more.

While he couldn’t estimate it’s height, the trunk area or girth was described as “immense.” Sgt Jones quickly grabbed his radio and called for help. As Jones looked back again to the hill, two large luminescent green blue orbs, “like eyes” were moving towards him. They kind of floated and were moving on an easy glide. Car lights appeared down the road and the air police officer lost no time in getting out of his truck and went to meet the vehicle. This vehicle had responded to the area in response to a report about strange lights being observed in the hills. Unusual marks were found on the ground.

Two young men were driving through a small village in Aisne to meet friends when they found they had to turn around to go in another direction. Just before passing the last house in the village, they slowed for a turn and were stopped by the sight of five small figures, taken at first for females, in the courtyard of the nearby house. Three were in the rear, to the left, in front of a wooded door; a fourth was walking slowly along the wall of the house touching it with both hands; the fifth stood in the center of the courtyard, not more than 3 meters from the witnesses, one of the men, in the passenger’s seat, had rolled down his window and found himself almost face to face with this figure. All five were similar in appearance. They were a little over 4 ft tall; complexions were yellowish white; and they were clothed in long loose hanging dresses that reached the ground, covering their feet. These were blue, with multicolored circles in them. Each being had long, straight hair that fell to the waist. Their eyes were outstanding; extremely large and dark with no whites showing, lacking lashes, eyelids, or eyebrows. These tended to bulge out. Their noses were slight and their mouths just a slit. When first discovered, the figures did not appear to noticed the two men; then the figure nearest them turned and stared at them, as did the others, none of them moving, and all with slight smiles fixed on their faces. The men, who were petrified with fear, were at first unable to move; after an estimated two minutes they quickly turned and drove from the scene, badly shaken. Two days lager they reported the incident to the local gendarmes. While their descriptions suggested “little women,” the men referred to the beings in the masculine. A third and independent witness is alleged to have seen the little beings from nearby.

It was not facing the road and the witness could see that it was unlike any normal animal he’d ever seen. It was greenish in color and covered with scales; as the witness drove by the figure turned its head to the left so he was able to see its head in profile; the face was reptilian, with bulging frog-like eyes and a broad, lipless mouth. The driver proceeded without stopping to investigate.

Billy Joe Lodnar, driving up Mt. Cross for a weekend of hunting, saw a blinking orange cigar shaped object pass over his truck and then turn back toward him. (The UFO, or another, had previously been seen by the pilot of a Marine A-4C Skyhawk flying from Beaufort, South Carolina, who radioed that it was flying “just off his wingtip.”) Lodnar got out of his truck with his rifle in had, and saw the object land in a clearing; he now saw that it was lens shaped with a central dome. He inched his way toward the gully where the object had settled until he was 300 feet away and somewhat above. He saw a door open on the side and a small, stocky humanoid with a large head on a “skeletal” body emerged, walking down a ramp. Its skin was gray and appeared scaly; the eyes were slit-like. As it walked around near the object, Lodnar trained his gun on it, but did not fire. The being re-entered the UFO, where another one appeared in the doorway to pull it inside. Then the object took off silently. In a later investigation on site, broken branches and scorch marks were found.

She glanced up and saw on top of the house at roof top height a “man” sitting on a box like object that was swinging back and forth apparently looking for something. The man was described as tall and heavy set wearing a shiny one-piece outfit with green, red, and white markings and large square boots. He wore a helmet with visor that covered his face. He appeared to be dark complexioned. The man sat on the object holding a rod like device rocking slowly to and fro. He then moved slowly towards the east where a vivid white light hovered. The witness saw the light and immediately felt a heat wave from it. The man then flew slowly towards a nearby cemetery followed closely by the bright light. He appeared to circle the area several times before disappearing from sight.

For several days prior to the weird encounter there were multiple reports of UFO sightings in Antigo. On Saturday night, Nov. 16 Mrs Eunice H, proprietor of a local bar and restaurant, had seen with her family a maneuvering light in the sky. Next afternoon while on duty at the bar, the witness saw a little man of strange appearance, 4 1/2 feet tall, enter the bar with a kind of “bouncing” gait; he motioned to her to come closer and addressed her in rapid English, saying, “You saw a bright light on Friday night.” She corrected him, saying it was Saturday night, but he repeated his assertion four times. He was smiling throughout this rapid-fire discourse, showing “a mouthful of white teeth.” His eye level was no higher than the top of the bar, and he wore dark glasses with inch-wide frames; he had a dark complexion, and shiny black hair. His jacket was loosely woven, “like burlap.” He continued his monologue and said a meteor was supposed to have landed nearby, adding something unclear to the witness about “Medford,” repeating the same name several times. He spoke so fast the witness was unable to follow what he was saying; on perceiving this, he threw his arms into the air and exclaimed, “And the whole world lit up!” He then wheeled about and stalked out of the door. By the time the witness had recovered from her surprise, the stranger had disappeared. She and several patrons in the bar had not heard any car drive away.

He pursued them, running down a farm road, and came upon one of them resting on the ground at the edge of a woods. Its brightness dazzled him so that he had to cover his eyes; then, feeling like someone was watching him, he turned and saw a strange figure just behind him. He started to run, but ran right into the figure and was knocked to the ground. He picked himself up and took off, thoroughly frightened. The figure was small, reaching only to Lance’s chest, but was stocky built; it had no neck, and had a “pushed in” nose similar to a Pekinese. The color of its skin was “bluish” like “a bruise.” The youngster reported the encounter immediately to his father, who took him to the sheriff’s office, where a complete report was made.

After dark, Jacques M. was driving a car following that of Pierre Errecoundo and Maggy Carof, on a saucer hunting expedition. He looked up to see, in the light of his headlights, a man at least 8 ft tall standing by the roadside. This being was all milky white, as if wearing a tight white coverall, and his round head was without hair or features. Panic-stricken, Jacques, drove on past; then, thinking better of it, he turned around and drove back, and returned over the same course; but he saw nothing more of the being. Meanwhile Pierre, noticing that Jacques, was not following him, had gone back to look for him. He saw a white headlight beam and a red light pass, apparently on the road, but silently, and disappearing before reaching the intersection. Then Jacques car showed up. On comparing notes and retracing his path, it was found that Jacques could account for only 8 minutes of the 10-11 minutes he had been absent. He was therefore questioned under hypnosis. He now said that he had got out of the car and watched the being for 3.5 minutes, and had felt that he was benevolent. He said also that there had been a big yellow-white light in the field, which “quickly disappeared.” The being suddenly vanished, after which the witness returned to his car and to his memory.

Slowing down to look, his headlights illuminated an object with a curved, transparent front, behind which could be seen a figure visible from the waist up, with arms upraised over his head, as if in terror. The figure, which seemed to be “a little taller than a tall man,” had a square face with hair “sticking straight out from the sides,” long, narrow ears that stuck straight out, brown furry arms, and fur or hair on his torso. The eyes were large and protruding. Frightened, Bosak sped pas the object, which was surrounded by a kind of fog; as he passed, the car “darkened, as if in shadow,” and the witness heard “a kind of soft whooshing sound.” No traces were visible at the site the following day.

A group of heavily armed soldiers had gone out in a search and destroy mission and had gone along a river bank by a heavily wooded area and had reached a clearing, when they began spreading out, their leader sensed something peculiar about the area. There was a strange eerie silence all around with the normal animals sounds totally absent. A scout went ahead and reported finding no tracks of any kind around. The silence continued. Strange fecal deposits were located, then sounds from the nearby brush were heard, several huge figures then came into view just ahead of the soldiers. The figures were almost eight-foot tall and bright yellow in color, as they came closer, large three digit hands with what appeared to be long claws could bee seen on the creatures. They had large eyes, nose slits and flat faces. The figures passed near the men apparently without noticing them. The men then decide to turn back, as they walked into the bushes they began hearing loud crashing noises and realized that the creatures were running behind them. The men all ran towards the river where their boat was located with the creatures in hot pursuit. Several times the men fired their high caliber weapons at the creatures without any apparent effect. At one point one of the men fired several armor piercing rounds at one of the creature’s chest area, this also without any apparent effect. The men finally reached their boat and left the area, before leaving they saw a strong powerful glow on the riverbank as if dozens of the creatures had gathered to watch them leave.

Noticing a light shining in her bedroom, 82-year-old Mrs P looked outside and saw a “boat shaped” or oblong object hovering over a neighboring house. The UFO, 50-60 feet wide, had green and white lights around the lower part, and seemed to be rotating. It gently rose and fell above the house for about 20 minutes and then moved to a new position above a nearby church. A white light shone from 3 to 4 square windows around the upper portion; atop was a brightly lit area, in which two small dark, humanoid figures could be seen moving and forth in “cramped positions,” continually gesticulating with their arms. The beings, which ignored the witness, were visible only form the waist up. The object remained over the church nearly a half an hour, rising and falling gently, and then it moved horizontally a short distance and shot upwards at a high speed.

On a pre-arranged meeting Enrique Castillo traveled to an isolated location by taxi. Soon a craft a craft appeared a few meters above ground level on a ravine “swinging from side to side and projecting a tenuous light downwards.” Around six to seven meters in diameter, it landed about 40 meters away. A tripod slid down, then a ladder and a man stepped to the ground. It was a Cyril; an extraterrestrial Castillo had met before. Castillo was apparently to an underground base in the high Andes. He was also taken to a base manned entirely by human like beings. There he met over a dozen other human Contactees from nineteen different countries.

Enrique Castillo and others supposedly were taken to meet a “master of wisdom” who apparently resided some distance away from the extraterrestrial base in the Andes. As they came out of a tunnel, four shiny craft, about for meters in diameter, could be seen, “suspended” some eight to ten meters above the ground. In due course a man looking like the Jesus as fancifully imagined, dressed in a simple, short sleeve robe and, of course, sandals, appeared out of the tunnel. Smiling, he addressed the assembled gathering. “I am not who you believe I am,” he declaimed. “My name is a thousand names.” The master of wisdom went on to deliver a flowery speech.

Multiple reports of a UFO with bright colored lights came about the same time a family of 4 persons called the County Sheriff’s dispatcher to report seeing a humanoid figure wearing “a silver and black suit with some sort of helmet” in the Forest Acres area; when observed, the figure would jump into bushes and disappear. The callers sounded sober, according to dispatcher Fred Barnes. Four deputies checked the woods around Forest Road and Barker Ten Mile Road but found nothing.
