1977 HUMANOID SIGHTING REPORTSCompiled byAlbert Rosalesgaruda79@att.net

1977 Humanoid Reports. The year of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” proved to be a busy and bizarre year, somewhat slower that the landmark year of 1976 and sort of a preview to the upcoming madness of 1978. It was indeed a high-strangeness era and 1977 was in the midst of it. Events in Haverfordwest Wales, Lindley New York, Pinheiro Brazil highlighted a year that was indeed uncommon. Weird events like the Pelham Georgia incident, the bizarre abduction in Paciencia Brazil were the epitome of high strangeness. The weirdness seems to have reached its height with the bizarre abduction of the Chilean soldier at Pampa Lluscuma in April. Starting with 1974 an increase of the so-called close encounters of the fourth kind of abductions was beginning to be noted. Missing time was just around the corner. In another side attraction of the weirdness for this year, huge hairy humanoids were more frequently reported in relation to UFOs in this year more than any other on record, except for maybe 1973.
Following are the known humanoid encounters for 1977.

E S H was returning home on foot late at night when he noticed some kind of luminous flashes coming from a nearby empty field. He went to investigate and was confronted by a tall humanoid covered in a luminous tight fitting outfit from head to foot. It had a small backpack on the back. The humanoid had large pointed ears, and large claw-like hands. The humanoid stood in front of the witness making what appeared to be friendly gestures. In a panic the witnesses attempted to run from the area but his path was blocked but the strange being. A struggle ensued in which the humanoid apparently attempted to abduct the witness. This one finally got away and ran home. The next day he found several deep marks on his body that remained visible for several days afterwards.

A local Indian who was a caretaker of an archeological site was alone one evening guarding the site when he heard the sound of a machete chopping wood. He walked towards the direction of the sound and as he rounded a corner of the temple a small clay pellet whizzed by close to his head, he then hid behind a piece of fallen masonry and heard more stones falling around him. Looking in the direction of the stones he noticed a tiny man like figure, outlined in the wavering moonlight. The being had a very large head with a jet-black beard and wore a white dress like garment. He carried a standard size machete slung over his shoulder almost as long as his body. He soon disappeared into the thick jungle.

Time: afternoon
Young Cynthia Montefiore was in her garden with her mother. Her mother wanted to show her the correct way to take cuttings from rose trees. Her mother stood behind the finest rose tree they had with a pair of scissors in her hand, while Cynthia stood in front of it. Suddenly her mother put a finger on her lips to indicate silence and then pointed to one of the blossoms. Astonished, Cynthia saw a little figure about six inches high, in the perfect shape of a woman and with brilliantly colored diaphanous wings resembling those of a dragonfly. The figure held a little wand and was pointing it at the heart of a rose. At the tip of the wand there was a little light, like a star. The figure’s limbs were very pale pink and visible through her clothes. She had long silvery hair, which resembled an aura. She hovered near the rose for at least two minutes, her wings vibrating rapidly like those of a hummingbird, and then she disappeared.

A young boy, Diego, (involved in other encounters) remembers suddenly waking up late at night to notice that the streetlights just outside his window appeared to have burned out. Terrified he lies in bed feeling that someone was watching him. A red diffuse light suddenly floats into the room from the corridor. As he watched a small humanoid exits the light, she describes him as having large head large oblique eyes, with only two holes for a nose, and a mouth similar to a thin horizontal line. The creature had long thin arms and hands. It wore a tight fitting dark gray outfit. As the terrified witness watched the figure went back into the red light and vanished.

The 16-year old witness saw a bright disc shaped object flying over his house and apparently shone a flashlight at it. The object descended and he could see two humanoid figures at a window looking down at him. He could hear a “telepathic” conversation between the two beings, which were debating if he was of any “interest” or not. His next recollection was of being onboard the object in a corridor as two humanoids stood nearby staring at him, one was tall the other short. Among other things told by the witness by the aliens was that there should not be any political differences on earth among nations. Apparently the tall alien was in charge and allowed the witness the wonder around the ship, but he was closely followed at all times by the short alien. He was then taken into a room and an instrument was inserted into his nostrils, the tall alien performed this operation. The witness felt that the shorter alien did not trust him, since he apparently had little experience with humans. Upon being returned the witness attempted to steal an item from the object to show some proof but the short alien that promptly took it away from him detected him.

The main witness and his wife had bought a ranch in an isolated area in 1975 and for more than a year they had been experiencing strange sounds, UFO manifestations and Bigfoot sightings on the property. There were some cattle mutilations as well. One night him and the eldest son went up to the top of a hill to examine a burned spot from the previous year. As they sat in the car, a beam of yellow light shone on them from nearby woods. Walking towards the trees, they discovered a buzzing black box, clearly seen in the light of the full moon. As they approached, it changed tone, now sounding like a swarm of angry bees. The two retreated to the safety of the car. The witness told the young man to stay by the car and went back to the spot where the black box had been; it was now gone. He saw a light in the trees and, walking toward the light, came upon two individuals standing near the light source. As he approached, they spoke to him, saying “How nice of you to come.” Some distance away, down a slope, was a disk, illuminated, about 50 or 60 feet away. The two beings apologized for the trouble they had caused, promising a more equitable arrangement. They told him several things he was not to repeat, but which had no special meaning for him at the time. They regretted damage done to several of the cars, but they did not acknowledge responsibility for any of the local cattle mutilations. They told him he was wise to have backed off from the black box, which was nearby. They pointed in a particular direction and the tone on the box changed; as it did, a Bigfoot type creature got up off the ground and walked toward the box. The tone changed and the creature dropped. The meeting lasted five minutes. In appearance the beings were similar, human looking about 5’6″ in height, and wearing a tight fitting outfit like a flight uniform. The suits changed colors from brown to silver. Their complexions were fair and they had blond hair, not long. The most notable features were the eyes, which were very large but otherwise normal looking. They were different in subtle ways but could pass as humans in ordinary situations. Before the witness walked away from the scene he was told by the beings that he would see them again.

The witness was alone in her home in the kitchen area when she felt a presence next to her. She turned and saw a very tall blond haired man wearing a light tight fitting outfit with boots and with a bright red light on the waist area. He had blue green eyes and mentally told the witness “not to be afraid that he was here to help.” Suddenly she blacked out and awakened in a large silvery metallic oval room where she saw other similar beings and computer like terminals and a huge screen. She was then taken into a room, where she changed her clothing and made to lay down on a cot. There two tall blond men and a shorter being described as wearing a white outfit, no hair, with a large head and large black slanted eyes with long thin arms that ended in three long fingers examined her using a brilliant blue light. The witness later came to in her home at 1130A. The witness was told by the beings to build a small pyramid next to her new home.

The 10-year old witness along with her parents and cousin were hiking in a wooded area. The adults were about 30 ft ahead of the two young witnesses when they noticed to their left about 10 ft ahead what appeared to be a small robot-like figure standing next to a tree. The “robot” was waving at them with an arm, at a 90-degree angle. As they got closer they could hear a clicking sound every time it waved. It had large round red eyes and it never moved, it just kept waving at the witnesses. The adults seem to simply or ignore it or somehow did not see it at all. As the witnesses approached closer to the figure, the witness yelled at her cousin to go touch it. Her cousin began to cry and ran away. The witness continued to approach but as the reached the tree the strange figure had disappeared.

A man had come face to face with a huge bigfoot-type creature. Behind the creature, he said, hovered briefly a tiny pinpoint of light from which a “high pitched whistle” emitted. Besides Bigfoot sightings the same area had been host to much UFO activity as well. In another case a humming metallic saucer-like object reportedly directed a beam of light down upon a startled young man.

The two main witnesses were telepathically instructed to go to a certain desolate area and wait. Suddenly somebody knocked on the window of their vehicle and they saw a tall man in dark clothing with red hair and beard. He told them that his name was “Zir” and then told them to wait there. He returned later with a being that called himself “Karran” who wore luminous clothing. He spoke in an unknown language that “Zir” translated. Zir had milky white skin and violet colored eyes; he told the witnesses he had two hearts. Karran then left in a huge luminous object that had apparently landed on the roadway nearby. The witnesses were supposedly able to snap a photo.

The young witness remembers one night being floated against his will down the stairs of his house. Terrified he saw a short figure (shorter than him) that floated beside him at all times. He tried to grab the wall and banister but could not get a firm hold. His next memory was of being in the driveway being floated down the road, surrounded by several gray colored figures. He tried to run but his legs just cycled aimlessly in mid-air. He remembers another time, also floating in his driveway accompanied by his younger sister and by the small gray figures. He had vague memories of being in a dark room with a metallic floor with some “people” that were involved in a project, which calmed him down and made him feel good. No other memories.

A 24-year old woman and her young sister were doing the wash next to their rural home when they saw on top of a nearby hill a strange bulky figure, dark and motionless, it resembled an 8-foot tall box with a round head on top and legs that appeared to thin out towards the bottom. A strange sound resembling several dogs barking into a microphone seemed to emanate from the figure. The two witnesses became frightened and locked themselves in their house; they then heard a sound as if someone was dragging itself outside on a sand path that encircled the house. The sound appeared to stop at the edge of a nearby pine grove. The adult witness suffered a nervous breakdown. A small radioactive spot was found at the foot of the hill, plus other ground traces were evident.

Mrs. Florida Malboeuf, about 50, was sitting at her window on the Rue Casgrain when she saw an oyster shaped, flat bottomed metallic object, with a row of white lights around its base, come in from the north and land on the rooftop of a 3 story apartment building across the street, about 60 feet from her. Immediately two figures appeared on the roof, they were very tall and thin (over 6ft.), with long arms, wearing white one piece garments with their heads covered with tight “bath helmets.” They stood looking at the street, then at the sky, then they returned apparently to the object. The moment after they disappeared, the object rose from the roof about 20 feet and went off to the east. Her son Andre went to the roof in question and found on top of the ice and snow there a large elliptical shaped crust of ice, 4/5″ thick, and about 18 feet in diameter, evidently formed by the local melting of the snow. In relief on this plaque and going toward the façade of the building were four small, narrow footprints, only 6.5″ long.

Terrified they watched the figure as it flew over their heads. They described it as large, man like with a featureless hairless egg shaped head, orange in color, with outstretched arms that ended in thin orange hands. It wore a shiny transparent white flowing smock. The figure itself appeared semi-transparent as it rose up into the sky and disappeared from sight.

Two weeks after two men had seen a low hovering object over some buildings one of the men was this time alone in the same area when he spotted a similar shimmering object that emitted a crackling sound and disappeared behind buildings. Moments later the witness caught sight of a short man like figure that quickly crossed his path ahead of him disappearing around a corner. The figure was about three-foot tall and appeared to be yellow in color. It had very thin arms and legs and a peanut shaped head. It seemed to glide just above the ground as it crossed the street.

Jose Cantu, 9, was preparing his breakfast when he saw a “little man” outside in his yard. He went outside and saw two greenish creatures about three-foot tall, unipedal, who rotated on a base instead of having legs and feet. According to his published drawing, they had only one eye, pug noses, and vestigial arms. Two steely craft were observed, one resting in the backyard and the other on the roof of the house, and in these were two more identical creatures. Hiding behind a washing machine, he saw the first two beings return to the UFOs, which were brilliantly lighted inside and contained “two chairs with very tall bases.” Ramps led up to “cross shaped” doors. After the humanoids had re-entered, the craft in the yard rose and disappeared in a cloud of steam or smoke. Marks in the gravel were found where Jose said the creatures had stood, and in the long grass of the backyard was a circle of whirled grass about 10 feet in diameter. Investigators found these traces still present during their on site inspection.

Residents of Santa Rosa-some awakened by a penetrating sound and bright lights-observed a UFO that circled above the village and finally came to rest on the bank of the river Turbio. It emitted multi-colored lights and caused panic. As it landed, human like figures could be seen moving “slowly and in robot like fashion” within the object. As a crowd of people with flashlights began to close in on the landing site, the UFO took off again; it had been on the ground for five minutes. Landing gear marks were left, as well as “a greasy granular material.”

Lee Parish, 19, had just left his girl friend’s home at 0100A and was driving his Jeep west when he saw a brilliantly orange red luminous rectangular object about 40 ft long and 10 feet high, hovering near the road at a 100 ft to 150 ft altitude. He felt compelled to look at it, although it was too bright to look directly at it. His car radio failed and his car came to a halt directly under the object; the he saw it speeding away without making any sound. When Lee arrived home, it was 0145A, though the trip should have taken only 7 minutes. His eyes were bloodshot and painful. Under hypnosis the same evening, he described coming directly under the UFO (the car was “driving itself” at this time), and seeing it change to black, then to white. The he could see nothing until he suddenly found himself in a circular, all white room with self luminous walls. Before him stood three non-human entities, a black one, to his left, stood almost as high as the 20-foot ceiling, and was jug shaped, with a relatively small featureless “head” and one handless arm. It moved toward Lee slowly and touched him on the side and the back; its touch gave him a cold and painful sensation, and it terrified him. The second entity was red and to his right, it was slightly smaller than the 6 ft witness, rectangular in shape, “like a coke machine,” with one un-jointed arm. It came slowly toward him and touched him on the shoulder and right temple, its touch stung like a needle, but it did not terrify him as the black one did. The third, white and about 6 foot tall, was in front of him and had a “blocky” body and a head square on the sides, and featureless flat in front, sloping at a 45 degree angle. The whole being glowed; it had arms, which remained motionless at its sides. Lee instinctively knew that this one was the “ruler” of the other two. The red being moved behind the white one, which now began to make a rhythmic scraping sound, “like sandpapering.” Then the white none moved behind the black one and vanished. Lee, who had been quite cold, found that he was now warm. Then the black entity simply disappeared and left the witness alone in the room, which had seemed throughout to be rocking back and forth. Without transition, he then found himself back in the Jeep, on the road. He said the vehicle seemed to be suspended beneath the object by some force, and that he was taken out and returned without opening the door. The day after the electrical system in the vehicle broke down. The witness felt he would be contacted again.

Donald Fender, 49, a self-employed bee farmer of Greeneville, was driving on Route 40 to Madison (north of Nashville). He was in his pickup truck and his dog with him. In the vicinity of Cookeville, his dog began to act strangely, and Fender felt “like someone wanted to talk to me.” Obeying an impulse, he turned off on a side road. He noticed a long balloon like thing that stretched along one side of the road for a distance of a mile or a mile and a half. White and silky in color and texture, he then saw another one on the other side of the road. Curious, he pulled off and stopped his car. His dog was by then quite agitated. Then suddenly, without any transition, he found himself inside a solid white colored cigar shaped room, or enclosure, approximately 50 feet long. He sensed rather than observed, five humanoid entities gathered around him. They were small in size and they stared at him. One was to his immediate left. Then they began to question him about a number of things, most of which Fender was unable to remember. They also gave him certain information; they told him they “were emissaries of peace” and that they could enter Earth’s atmosphere only at this point—or “window”-along the road; and that this spot would “become the future home of space travel.” They also told him of dire events including major catastrophes that would come about in the near future. He “saw” or was “shown” various scenes, as though he were floating far above them, of areas of major destruction and devastation. These included scenes of green farmlands he identified as being English; these were devoid of any kind of life. After approximately 15 minutes, he suddenly found himself back in his truck, with no idea of how he got there. Along the roadside there was nothing unusual to be seen. His dog was behaving normally once more. He felt very strange and disturbed by the experience. Arriving at Madison about an hour later than he expected, he was unable to account for the lost time. There was a good deal about the experience that he was unable to remember. He was so upset about the experience that within the week he drove to Washington DC, to make the incident known officially. He went to the Department of Defense where, he said he spoke to Defense Secretary Brown himself. His story was met with little enthusiasm. There is more to the story that he is unwilling to divulge over the telephone to the investigators.

On a weekend not long after a previous encounter in the woods, the witness was at the ranch sleeping on the couch. It was a weekend, as the other witness was out for Denver. About 0200A, the witness was suddenly fully awake, and found he was unable to move. He was looking toward the French windows. He saw, standing there before the window, a being seven-foot tall, unlike the two he’d seen earlier. He was very thin, and had a box like device on its chest, pointed, with three hose like extensions on either side, and wore what appeared to be a “space helmet” over its head with a plastic covering. “It was more or less pathetic in appearance—almost helplessly pathetic. It was looking at me in the same way that you would look at a patient on the table, not cruelly, or indifferent-just looking.” The witness kept making noises trying to call out to the other persons in the cabin, when the being suddenly just vanished. The witness was finally able to call out but by the time the others arrived the being was gone. Following more peculiar incidents at the ranch including a suspicious fire the witness and his family decided it was time to leave.

A 21-year old man reported to police that on leaving a restaurant about 0410A, he was confronted by two short, gray skinned men with enlarged skulls, no hair, and eyes with black pupils. The next thing he knew, he was in a school playing field, facing a circular craft, which had landed there, with a ladder extending toward him. Suddenly he found himself inside the object, with no recollection as to how he got there, he was examined by the beings, and told, telepathically, that they were on “a mission to study life habits” on Earth. They also told him that their craft was from a larger ship located outside the planet’s atmosphere. While on board, he stuck his hand into a chamber, which cause “all sorts of lights to go off.” Finally, he found himself outside an apartment complex in Concord, where for 15 minutes he was unable to move. He called the police at 0533A.

Several children at a youth camp in Tasmania observed a stationary, dome shaped object hovering near the beach. The object then moved behind some trees, partially obscuring it. On the dome was a row of windows through which at leas two of the children reported seeing a thin human like figure, with a round head. It seemed to be moving back and forth behind the window. One child described the object as similar to two plates placed edge to edge, with flashing yellow white lights along the edge and a red light on top of the dome. The object disappeared from view behind the trees.

Several schoolboys at Broad Haven school saw a huge silvery object on the ground about 300 yards away in an adjoining field; David George, 9, said it was humming, and looked like a saucer with a point. He saw it by it a man in a silver suit, with long ears. Tudor Jones, 10, Jeremy Passmore, 9, and David Ward, 10, also saw the figure. Ward said, “the people wore green-they had sort of cameras—they had pointed ears.” The object was still there at 1400. At 1535, the object was again seen in the same place, for 5 minutes, by a total of 14 boys and 1 girl; their drawings showed a domed, dish-cover shaped object. The site where the UFO appeared was a muddy swamp; no traces were found.

Ms. Lois Stovall saw from the window a luminous object in the sky approaching her house from the north. She and her grandmother, Mrs Alice Buckner, went to the yard for a better view and saw it hovering over a small tree less than 50 ft away. It was capsule shaped with cylindrical axis vertical, and transparent on the side facing them, with dark vertical bars. Through this could be seen a flame like light and a human shaped figure, all over gray in color, that looked puffed up, like a balloon, with ridges or rings running round the appendages. She could not see any hands or feet. This figure in an inflated suit, about four-foot tall, was standing in a space only barely large enough for him, and was in a crouched position. The light was between his feet. Mrs Buckner walked directly under the object and tried to touch it, but it was two feet too high. She could see that there was a window in the head-part of the suit, and could barely make out that there was some sort of face behind the window. Then the object began to ascend, and passed out of sight to the south. Ms Stovall saw 3 helicopters with glowing red cabin lights flying very low over the adjacent school grounds. The investigators were unable to find any plausible source for these aircraft. Mrs Dessie Turner, a neighbor, also saw the object while it hovered, and estimated that it was 6.5 feet high and 2.5 in diameter. She thought she could see a shadowy figure inside. She also saw the helicopters.

A local farmer, Juan Sillero, was awakened by the sound of his dogs barking and by a loud humming sound. Going outside he saw a hovering metallic object with numerous lights and what appeared to be three legged landing gear dangling down. The craft had a semi transparent dome on top and was surrounded by rectangular windows. Behind the windows several moving figures that moved slowly back and forth could be seen. At one point he was approached by two tall human-like beings wearing dark diver suits that explained to the witness that they had to leave the area since they had been “detected”. In another occasion the witness saw a robot-like creature apparently exploring the area after it came out of a landed craft. There were other independent witnesses of crafts descending over the area. The witness saw a craft land in the same area a week later. Landing traces were found at the site.

The witness, Lothar Schaefler saw a cigar shaped object carrying four very bright lights land about 150 feet away. The object emitted an extremely high-pitched, piercing, but not loud tone of constant intensity. Lothar ran along the kitchen wall and threw himself on the ground between some small bushes in front of the backyard fence. The whole area was brilliantly lit now. Suddenly Lothar heard a short whistling sound, felt a slight draft of air and saw, apparently appearing out of nowhere, two strange alien looking beings directly behind him. The figures were no more than 1.30 meters and 1.10 meters tall, respectively. The beings had a somewhat human-looking body, although their long arms reached almost to below their knees. Conspicuous were also their oddly cramped fingers, reminiscent of those of spastic children. Other than a kind of frill around the neck – somewhat like a harlequin – with some 6-7 light green “star like serration” Lothar could not make out any further articles of clothing. Their skin appeared to be somewhat lighter than human skin. Their headless heads were completely round, as were their clearly defined mouths. Nose and ears could not be seen; neither did they appear to have necks. The strange figures rocked their torsos slowly back and forth. The eyes were slanted, and large like those of cows seemed to stare unflinchingly at the witness, now paralyzed with fear. The witness was so terrified that he beat upon the glass of the closed door, instead of opening it. Then the UFO and the entities vanished “like a light being switched off.” At least six other independent witnesses saw mysterious lights and objects over the area on the same date.

From one side of the object four very tall men, described as human like and blond, wearing tight fitting blue uniforms emerged. These men were followed by a much taller hulking figure completely covered with dark brown hair. This last figure was described as somewhat ape like and appeared to walk behind the four blond men, obediently following them around the silvery craft as they seemed to search for something. All five eventually went back inside the craft, which appeared to sink back into the ground. The witness waited years before he reported the incident, by then all possible traces hand been obliterated.

Once at home they stand in the balcony and see some lights moving in a bizarre fashion on a nearby field. The wife goes to bed. The husband then notices a car driving out of the park and then sees a being crouching down between the passing vehicle and parked cars. The being is crouched down with arms straight down. He is more than 3 meters in height and is wearing a brilliant coverall with a hood and a visor. The car drives by and the being then stands up. The witness looks away momentarily from the being and when he looks back the strange giant figure had vanished. The witness then sees additional lights maneuvering over the fields until early morning. He also reported fuzzy shapes carrying lantern like lights on the field. After this incident the husband apparently experiences several bedroom visitations (no details) in which he feels very tired and is unable to wake his wife.

The witness was driving east towards his farm when he sighted a shimmering oval shaped light source directly ahead of him hovering just above the roadway. It was whitish yellow in color. The witness drove directly underneath the object. As he drove further on he suddenly came upon three strange figures standing on the road ahead of him. They stood in a row spaced evenly across the road. The figures were short and somewhat shaped like bowling pins. Their heads were bulbous and they had a narrow neck with a flared body. The witness applied the brakes, but could not stop in time. He felt absolutely nothing as he apparently drove over the figures. They seemed to disappear as he touched them with the front bumper. As he looked back on his rear view mirror he saw the figures reappear. They then seemed to shrink and vanish completely.

The object was about 50-60 feet from them. Mrs Stites said that he saw two persons on the hillside carrying “basketball sized lights,” and that the UFO, at one point, flew over the truck. They turned the truck around and drove away in great fear.

An oval object, luminous and making a humming sound, was observed, from which a man emerged, similar in appearance to the one involved in her earlier encounter. (Human like with long hair, beard and pink eyes). He approached, holding out his hands, and touched Mrs Bowles; his touch was warm, like a human. The man looked at Mrs Strickland and then spoke in an unknown language. He gave something to Mrs Bowles, which she would not divulge, and then returned to the object, which ascended with a hum and high-pitched noise. The women returned to Winchester, and Mrs Bowles observed that her hands were red and swollen; she had to remove her wedding ring and she found the area underneath raw.

About half a mile further on, he noticed that he could not see the lights of farmhouses in his right; looking closer, he saw that they were obscured by a large dome shaped object, dark in appearance, about 30 to 40 feet in diameter and 40 feet high, at rest in the adjacent field. Around its underside there was a dim glow of light. As he was watching he heard footsteps; looking around he saw only several feet away a figure “like a skinny human six-foot tall,” with high cheekbones “like an old man,” and large round eyes, resembling that of a fish. Over its mouth was a box like device with a tube leading over the shoulder. He was wearing a one-piece suit that was semi-transparent. Taylor took a swing at the figure and ran for home. On arrival, he found his dog acted uncharacteristically, snarling and barking; put outdoors, the dog behaved normally the next day.

A husband and wife were in a pair of sleeping bags by the seashore when they saw a bright disc-shaped object come from the ocean straight towards them. The woman had a brief recollection of seeing several tall humanoids without mouths that communicated with her telepathically and showed her a book. Later she recalled that the craft was flat, streamlined and black in color. A beam of light covered the couple and apparently took them inside the object. The eyes of the aliens were reported as black and shiny but rounded towards the nose and did not blink. The aliens were about 6 1/2 or 7 ft tall, thin, with delicate bodies, real long fingers and wearing skintight one-piece scuba-like outfits. They were completely hairless. The inside of the craft resembled a doctor’s office; it was very bright white and warm. She was made to lie on a very cold table. She was strapped to the table and saw many instruments one of which made a buzzing sound. The woman has been involved in previous incidents.

The man seemed startled and suddenly the witness began hearing a loud buzzing sound and everything around him began to vibrate. The figure appeared to be yelling at him. A second man wearing a blue coverall now descended from the sky inside what appeared to be a half-egg shaped contraption with rotating blades on top. It was creating a strong turbulence all around the area. Both men descended to the ground using this peculiar machine. The two half egg shaped objects then suddenly shot up into the sky and disappeared. Both men were described as bald headed with flat faces. Both had dark brown skin and wore metallic blue uniforms and what appeared to be oxygen tanks on their backs. Both were about 5-feet tall and their heads were slightly larger than normal. Suddenly the witness heard a loud motor sound and saw a disc shaped object descend overhead making the trees whip back and forth. After emitting more sounds the object shot straight up making a siren-like sound. The object was silvery and appeared to have been spinning. The two humanoids then began walking away looking over their shoulders at the witness. He then heard a noise and noticed a huge hairy Bigfoot type creature hiding behind a nearby stump. The two humanoids then seemed to motion at the Bigfoot to come with them. It seemed to obey and left with them. The witness experienced a memory loss after the incident.

Mr. L X, his wife and Miss V M went for an excursion in the mountain. In a certain remote place on the rocky slopes they saw a strange car. The car appeared normal but the place where it was stationed was; an inaccessible spot on the rough rocks which it could not have reached without suffering serious damage. But the car was intact. It stayed there for many days; the three people went there repeatedly to see if the car’s owner would finally come and tow it. In one of these visits they climbed to the spot the car in order to examine it. There was nothing unusual except the car’s presence and some peculiar tracks in the snow. The tracks were oval, about half a meter long and they were even in virtually vertical rock surfaces, where no animal or man could walk. As they stood around the young woman strayed away from the couple and had reached a spot behind some bushes. The she started screaming wildly. The others ran to her. When she calmed down she explained that she had seen a “white creature, a horrendous white creature” with an oval shape, about 60cm tall with no other features except “two huge luminous eyes”. The others did not see anything but Mr. L X, noticed that the bushes were moving like some animal was behind them, somewhat concerned they went back to Athens. A few days later, Mr. L X had a weird experience. He was again in Pendeli with his wife when he started screaming and trembling. For a while he was not able to speak. Finally he explained to her that he was ready to start the car when he saw beside him, outside the car, a huge black sphere rotating with tremendous speed. He could not see any details, only that it was something like a “hairy sphere” or ” a sphere made of thick black smoke”. The whole incident lasted fractions of seconds. At the same time, he felt like “something was trying to enter his mind” and saw the sphere coming through the closed glass of the car window.

The light was dome shaped and a large broad figure with a white haze surrounding its outline could be seen in front of the light, it appeared to grow larger as the light approached and it seemed to have frizzy hair and furry boots. This entity appeared to be ten to eleven-foot tall. At this point one of the witnesses turned the radio on and it emitted a loud crackle. The witnesses then drove away at high speed in their vehicle but the light and the strange figure somehow managed to keep up with them.

The 52-year old witness was watching jackrabbits by moonlights in the Veterans Administration Hospital grounds when she heard a whirring noise and looked up to see a luminous white ellipsoidal object coming down for a landing, approximately 30 to 40 feet away. Its contours were fuzzy; the top of the object was a soft luminous pink and something like a horizontal periscope, or boom, protruded form the right end. The object was about 40 to 50 feet in diameter and about 20 feet high. The whirring ceased as it landed, and she saw no landing gear. The sight transfixed the witness. Then a human like figure well over six-foot tall, with very broad shoulders, appeared walking toward her from the UFO. She had not seen him emerge through any door. He wore a silvery one-piece outfit that was tight, like a frogman’s outfit, and he appeared to have on mitten like gloves. Coming up to her he spoke, saying “I’ am Onleel, I want to talk with you, come with me.” She saw only his eyes, large and dark and with what seemed to be tiny points of fire deep within; she saw no other facial features, and the voice, probably telepathic, seemed to come from the eyes, the witness felt compelled to obey. The next thing that she remembers is that she is inside the ship, with no recollection of how she got onboard. She follows Onleel across what appears to be the main central room through a doorway to a smaller room. In the room are three (possibly four) other beings, in general description similar to Onleel but smaller, between 4 and 5-foot tall, and wearing one-piece suits of a brown color, with boots. Two are seated at what appears to be a control panel, while the third stands before something like a screen. They pay her no attention. She has the impression that they may be females, although there is nothing specific abut their shape to suggest this-only their smaller size. The fittings and furniture were all of “spun aluminum” and a bright light that illuminated the interior had no visible source. In a room to the other side of the “control room” she partially observed what might have been bunks. In the smaller adjacent room, Onleel sat the witness down, and offered her an aluminum cup with liquid resembling milk; she declined the offer to drink. Then Onleel, who stood before her on what appeared to be a kind of plate in the floor, asked her a number of questions, some of which were of a highly personal nature, indicating that he must already know a great deal about her. He asked her what she would do in various hypothetical situations, and he discussed with her aspects of reincarnation. When asked how she would react to the prospect of facing death, she responded by saying she would accept it. He told her that she was “one of the developing ones—there are many of you scattered all over the planet;” and he said he (or they) “would be coming back for her.” The witness asked when and why; he answered, “It is not for you to know.” His voice was a metallic monotone, somewhat similar to the voice of a computer. After the quiz, which lasted perhaps 20 to 30 minutes, she again found herself outside the object, dazed and upset, with no recollection of how she got there. She was on the street now, outside the VA Hospital grounds, near her own apartment. She got home at about 0230A. There were many things about the experience she is unable to remember. She had been wearing a new pair of shoes; in the morning, she noticed that they were covered with desert dust and burrs; this confirmed for her the reality of the experience, that it had not been a dream.

Mrs Susanne Fortier, with her collie dog, was walking on the lawn behind her house. Hearing a “wind or whistle,” she observed a small object land in the vicinity of the children’s playhouse. It was about five feet in diameter, with 8 “pods or legs,” windows or doors all around it, and an antenna on top. The interior was a bright red, or illuminated by a red light, and contained six occupants 3-foot tall who had long slit-like eyes, ape like noses, and no hair. The skin of their faces seemed very wrinkled. They wore gloves. Mrs Fortier could hear “a garble of voices” talking, like a bunch of CB voices, and felt extreme heat from the craft. She watched it for about 15 minutes, after which it rose straight up and flew off to the south. When she got back in the house she found her face and legs red from the heat. Her dog, which reacted noticeably to the object, would still not let her go near the area a month later. No traces were found at the site, which was muddy.

The witness, a woman in her 30’s living on Rue Cleroux, was in her kitchen when she saw a strong light coming in her back window. On raising the blind, she saw a disc shaped object of a dazzling, pulsating white luminosity, about 35 ft in diameter, hovering several yards above a tree 35 ft tall. It bore a pulsating red luminous domed cupola without windows. Around its periphery revolved yellow, green, blue, and red blinking lights. She heard a sound like a huge swarm of bees. After watching the UFO for perhaps 15 seconds, she ran to her bathroom and hid, 2 minutes later, the noise and the light ceased. She went out to the street in front of her house, where she found a 13-year old boy, Jos Madison, pointing a carbine at the sky; the now silent disc was hovering 100 ft up, in a tilted position. Jos did not fire, but called to his friend Alair Narby, also 13. Jos’s 2 sisters joined them and also saw the UFO, which was now moving from place to place above the houses by jumps too rapid to observe. It then stopped for more than 5 minutes, during which Mrs Madison came out and also observed it. It was now about sunset. The object moved off toward the river Nadon, where it again dashed back and forth. The 2 boys followed it to the Nadon field by the river, in which there was a temporary pond formed by melted snow. They saw the UFO approach the river, now flying very low; it skimmed over the pond 100 yards away, producing a loud sizzle of boiling water, then landed behind a slight rise of ground. It was at this time emitting a strident very sharp sound. After 4 or 5 minutes there appeared, in front of the object, what the boys took for the helmeted head, shiny red and metallic shoulders of a man or man like being, seen from the rear; because of the terrain no more was visible. Above the head of this figure was a red light, apparently floating in midair. He looked to right and left, then bent down and was seen no more; immediately afterward, the disc rose, lighted up, and at an altitude of about 65 ft resumed its erratic movements. Darkness was falling, and the boys returned home, finally running because the UFO seemed to be following them. They were temporarily partially deafened, evidently by the UFO’s noise. At least 3 families in the block experienced total interference with TV reception during this time. At the scene different tracks and what appeared to be footprints were found.

Cyril John, 64, a former local political leader, was up early for an early start into London when he noticed a light shining in his bedroom window. Looking out he observed two objects, an egg-shaped object of silver gray color with a bright orange-red light on top of it and about four feet across, was rocking gently in the air about 60 yards away; the second was a humanoid figure, about 7 to 8-foot tall, floated in the air with arms out and legs bent back, like a “free fall parachutist,” about 35 feet away, between the object and the observer. No features could be seen on the figure’s face, and it was dressed in a uniformly silver gray “boiler suit.” It remained motionless in the air for more than 25 minutes, when both it and the object began slowly moving off, gradually disappearing from view in the distance.

Two young girls walking under a highway overpass by a canal were following a path up a small hill when they suddenly saw an object hovering above some brush nearby. The craft was dark gray, apparently metallic; shaped like a drum and had four to six long spider like legs hanging from its bottom. The object then rose slowly and disappeared towards the southeast following a curved path. Suddenly from out of the bushes under where the object had been hovering a thin human like figure emerged, it had long brown hair and was wearing a blue top and dark pants, it also wore strange looking boots. Behind the thin figure, five other similar but shorter figures appeared. The group then walked briskly in a single file, towards the desert and disappeared from sight in the distance.

A couple returning to their trailer home had to make a stop to change their baby’s diaper. As the husband looked for a diaper he glanced out the window and saw a twelve-foot hairy creature with fierce glowing red eyes. The creature uttered guttural sounds and apparently made an aggressive move towards the car. The creature chased the vehicle as the terrified couple fled the area; it hit and dented the car angrily flinging its arms up and down. The next night as the couple looked out their mobile home they saw a similar creature perched near a tree. The creature took several steps towards the house and was shot at by the husband several times, at that point it seemed to jump up and disappear in plain sight.

The radio of hotel owner Rosa Gremville suddenly went dead; moments later she heard a loud humming noise outside; looking out, she was dazzled by a “huge moon lighting up the area, moving about like a seesaw.” It descended and landed in a field 100 yards behind the hotel. “It was round, with flames coming from the top of a dome. There was a light on it, like a pulsating star.” Two creatures 8 or 9-foot tall emerged from the dome through the flames; they had on “cream colored” or “silvery” jump suits (or boiler suits). Observing through binoculars, she could see neither features-(just a blank face)-nor any hair; they looked as though they had hands, but she saw no fingers. “I though their feet were webbed.” The figures walked around near the object for about 15 minutes. Mrs Gremville “wanted to scream,” but she had lost her voice. She went in search of another witness but when they returned, object and figures had disappeared. Burn marks were found at the site the next day.

Bill Bartlett, 17, was driving on Farm Street with two friends when he saw a creature on top of a roadside stone wall, about 20 feet away. It was between 3.5 and 4-feet tall when upright, and had a small, slender body and very large melon shaped head showing no features except two large round, orange glowing eyes, Its skin was “like the color of a shark,” and it had large hands and feet with digits that appeared to wrap around whatever supported them. It slowly turned its head to stare at the witness, who drove quickly away; his companions had not seen it. An artist, he made a drawing later for investigators, now widely reproduced in most sources.

John Baxter, 15, was walking home his girl friend’s house along a road off Farm Street, 1.2 miles from the site of the previous encounter, when he saw a very small figure approaching him. He called out but got no response. When he was 25 ft away, the figure stopped, and then ran quickly across a gully next to the road into an adjacent field. Baxter followed several feet then stopped, frightened, and observed the figure some 30 feet away as it stood on a rock and grasped a tree trunk, staring at the boy. It somewhat resembled a monkey with a very large “figure 8 head.” Its eyes were visible as two lighter circles in the center of the head. Perturbed by the strangeness of its appearance, Baxter backed away slowly, then turns and ran to Farm Street, where a car picked him up. He drew a sketch that closely matched another witness’s.

It looked like a hairless, beige colored monkey or small ape, with a very large, oblong shaped head. Two large round eyes in the center of the head glowed green in the car’s lights. No nose, ears, or tail were seen. They drove past, within 8 feet of the little creature, which Abby observed closely for about 5 seconds; her companion, driving, only glimpsed it briefly. Neither knew of the other sightings at the time.

Pauline having seen it first, said nothing to her husband until he himself saw it. “It must have been over 7-foot tall, because they could not see its face.” It was three feet wide, surrounded by a luminous glow; its box shaped helmet framed a dark square area in which no face was visible. They called the investigator and the police immediately, but the figure was gone before they arrived. Mrs Coombs and her family has been involved in several other incidents prior and after this encounter.

Eight soldiers on a military patrol suddenly saw a bright light nearby, the soldier’s dog and horses remained still as the lights hovered nearby. The leader of the group, Corporal Armando Valdes, ordered the other soldiers to extinguish the campfire they had built in order to get a better look at the lights. The two large lights were about 800 meters away hovering close to the ground. Valdes approached the lights ordering it to identify themselves. Suddenly a bright light enveloped Valdes and he disappeared in plain sight of the others. The others frantically searched for him but could not find him. At about 0415A Valdes suddenly appeared, looking very strange, he emitted a sinister laugh and asked several times where his mother was then he said in a very sinister sounding voice ” you will never who we are and where we come from.” The others noticed that he appeared to have a week’s growth of beard, whereas he had been clean-shaven just an hour ago, and his digital watch indicated the impossible date of April 30 1977. He was almost in hysterics and one of the soldiers had to slap him, at this point he fainted. One of the other soldiers, Raul Salinas, who was standing a few meters behind the others, noticed behind some nearby rocks a strange humanoid creature which he described as half animal and half human; no facial features were visible, but it seemed to be wearing a helmet and was carrying an object with a red light. Salinas was stunned to see the creature apparently appeared at several places at the same time, he thought that maybe it could have been other humanoids. He did not mentioned this to the others, since they were already scared enough, apparently they did not see the humanoid or humanoids. When Valdes woke up, he could not remember where he had been. Apparently the Chilean military conducted various tests on Valdes.

He continued riding and, about 50 yards beyond; he came upon the object on the ground. Two little men were standing near it. These had large eyes, and long hair. One asked him to help them, and then one reached up and touched his shoulder. Suddenly, Geraldo found himself floating down to the ground, with the frightened horse running off. He remembered yelling for help, but then blacked out. The next day he was found lying in a nearby bamboo grove. He had a red, six inch scar on the inside of one arm and five tiny puncture wounds, 2 on each side of his chest and waist and one on his left shoulder. The holes had silver edging around them, which gradually disappeared as the injuries healed. He could barely speak after the encounter and lost his vigorous energy.

The predator returned that night, and the Sites saw it clearly standing in their well-lit yard. “It was big and hairy,” Mrs. Sites reported. “It was brown. It looked like a human with a beard and moustache. It had no neck; it looked like its head was just sitting on its shoulders. It had big red glowing eyes.” When the Sites dog attacked it, the creature effortlessly swatted it away—sending it flying about 20 ft. On subsequent nights, the Sites saw the creature several more times.

They then observed a huge figure, about 8-foot tall and four foot wide, cross their path about 25 feet away and disappear again into the woods. It was a dark blue color, but brighter that its surroundings. No distinct arms or legs were discerned.

It was just after 1500 when they saw a silver suited figure walking about 60 to 70 feet away; the figure, walking away from the children, went up to a hedge, seemed to walk through the barbed-wire fence adjacent to it, and then disappeared. On the other side of the field a silvery white “plate like object,” with a red light, was seen to land; a ramp like stairway came out and a red “box” was ejected down the stairway to the ground. The mission completed, the stairs were retracted, and a door in the object shut and the object took off. They ran home for their mother, but there was no sign of the object or figure in the field, although an object was again seen flying seaward. Large footprints were found in the grass at the landing site.

Two ten-year old girls heard a strange humming sound while playing in a field near their house; appearing to come from a nearby woods, they approached and saw an object on or near the ground, of a cylindrical shape, surmounted by a small dome with a steady red light. The object was perhaps 30 feet long and of a metallic color; a red band encircled the lower section. The girls, approximately 300 yards away, believed the object was two feet above the ground—the same height as a fence situated between them and the object. They could see no landing gear. To the right of the object was a very tall thin “man,” partially hidden by bushes in between; at least six-foot tall, his arms were disproportionately short, and he was dressed all in silver. When he started to move toward them, the girls became frightened and fled; at a safer distance they turned and saw the man had disappeared; the object then began to ascend, moving off in three jerky “stepped up” maneuvers and then ascending vertically at terrific speed. They hurried home and told their parents, who said they had heard the humming sound. The police were notified, and a circular area of about 100 yards of minor damage, including singed trees and underbrush, was found at the site.

Three 4-year old boys, Lenny Young, Pat Morrison, and George Ferrera, were out late playing in a field near Suisan Bay, off Willow Pass Road. They saw a fixed group of red lights in the sky, being circled by a solitary blue light; the lights flew rapidly off into the distance and then returned, landing nearby. They described it as a 90-foot saucer shaped object, with a row of square or rectangular “windows” along the side; one of these was larger than the others. Red lights blinked on and off around the perimeter. The object was less than 300 feet from them and in the darkness in between, at a distance of from 50 and 150 feet, they saw three figures moving toward them. The forms were black “like smoke,” up to six-foot tall, and moved as thought they were “linked together.” Ferrera said they had a “kind of human shape but no eyes; they walked like robots.” Yong said, “It was like they had no clothes on…they had no faces…I know what people look like walking in the dark. They were not people. They were something else.” Morrison said, ” They were black; they looked like they were wearing long skirts over their heads.” The three boys turned and ran, stopping at the street to look back; they saw the figures “slowly fade from view.” When they reported the incident to the police, Morrison was crying with fright. No traces were found at the site.

Lalit Chawla, his wife Nina and their two young sons were out for an after dinner walk in the Juhu district when they noticed a gigantic disc shaped craft with flashing multi colored lights on its base hovering above them, spinning slowly. They were all briefly engulfed by a blue beam of light, then the craft ascended at a high rate of speed, disappearing towards the Arabian Sea. The next day there was a marked changed in Lalit’s behavior, mostly remaining to himself and staring. Other strange events occurred in the house. That same night around 0400A, Lalit drove to nearby Juhu beach, closely followed by his wife and brother in law. They all watched as a disc shaped craft hovered over Lalit’s car shining a yellowish-white beam of light on it, engulfing it for a few seconds. Soon after that, Lalit seemed to return back to normal. One night during a birthday party one of the young girls cried out that there was a “blue man with four arms” standing in the doorway. The others did not see the creature and her mother took the child home. Later the mother of the child realized that the creature that her daughter saw resembled the Hindu God “Vishnu.” That same night, a strange blue light in her room awakened Nina. She opened her eyes and saw the room filled with what appeared to be Hindu Gods, Vishnu, Lakshmiji, Ganeshji, and various others. They had apparently levitated Lalit and could sense that Nina was very frightened. The being that resembled Vishnu looked into her eyes and communicated with her telepathically telling her not to fear, that their work here was over, that they will be leaving in peace. As soon as that was said they put Lalit back onto his bed and they vanished, with them also went the blue light that they emanated.

Pauline Coombs (involved in other, rather bizarre encounters) had returned to the farm from a fancy dress party. She had found her husband, Clinton, in a distressed condition. He related what had happened. Looking out of the window he had seen the strangest silver car ever, come up the driveway. In it were two men in black suits. One got out and approached the farm. He seemed to float along. Clinton wouldn’t answer the door. He felt something was wrong. Carol, living in the adjacent cottage three minutes walk from the farm had seen the visitors arrive. She thought how strange there was no scrunching of the gravel when the car drove up. As she put some rubbish into her dustbin, she was shocked to find one of the men standing next to her. She had seen him at the farm only 20 seconds before. It would have taken at least three minutes to get to her cottage, and yet there he was with a strange waxy skin, high forehead and sleeked back black hair—and cold unblinking eyes. He had asked for Pauline by name. Carol told him she did not know where Mrs. Coombs was and turned to in doors. Next thing the man was gone, vanished. But there he was in the same instant back in the car moving up the drive. But then an even more inexplicable thing happened, Pauline’s friend, Rosa, highly distressed called from her hotel, north of Broad Haven. Her daughter Anna, a university student was alone at the hotel. She had looked out of the window to see an enormous silver car in front of the hotel. But why hadn’t she heard it on the noisy gravel drive. Two men were in the car and it was their physical appearance that frightened Anna the most. Her description of the one that came to the hotel was the same as Carol’s. He had asked for her mother and when would she be back. After that they left and seemed to vanish into thin air as nobody saw them come out of the driveway.

Cecilia Perez Torres was sitting in her car at an isolated site taking in the panoramic view of the mountain when she noticed a strange ping-pong size sphere of light that was flying around her vehicle, with her was her boyfriend who concluded that the light was a firefly. The light flew around the car two more times. Suddenly Ms Torres had a strong impression of being watched, she wanted to leave but her boyfriend refused. She looked around and saw a strange four-foot tall figure coming out of the nearby woods & walking towards the vehicle. The figure had a large head and appeared to be looking at the witnesses. At first the boyfriend did not see the figure but as it got closer he saw it and began screaming. As the figure approached she could see that it had gray/green skin with a reptilian texture. It had large slanted dark eyes. It lacked a nose and only had a small slit-like mouth. It had long dangling arms, and long fingers, and was very thin, it appeared to be naked. Cecilia also began screaming and at this point her boyfriend grabbed a gun that he had under the seat and pointed it at the creature. She grabbed his hand begging him not to shoot. Suddenly the creature ran very quickly into the woods and disappeared. Frightened they drove away from the area at high speed.

During a time of several other encounters with objects and humanoids by the witness family, the witness was on her way home when she noticed a strange figure standing near the porch, it appeared to be dressed in a white shirt and dark pants, it was five-foot seven inches tall and had black hair. It was motionless and no facial features could be seen. She yelled at the figure, thinking it was someone she knew and looked away briefly; but when she looked back the figure had already vanished. At one point the figure was seen again and it seemed to move very strangely, not moving its feet at all, his whole body turned in a very strange manner. He appeared to glide as he disappeared into the woods.

The witnesses heard loud scraping noises on the roof that woke them up. They also heard strange voices along with the scraping. They then saw a very bright light coming from the bedroom window. Going to the living room they saw an object drop down and hover low over the ground between the houses. It was an octagon shaped craft that gave off a very bright light. Inside they could see several short gray figures. The object was about eight feet long and 4 feet high. Its light was yellow/green in color and it emitted a soft humming sound. After a few moments the object shot away at a very high speed.

The witness had been attending a meeting with colleagues regarding his recent job lost; at about 2300 he left the hotel for some fresh air. Outside he immediately saw three small figures emerging from an alley adjacent to the hotel, approaching him. His first thought was that they were coming for him; then he noticed a fourth being lying directly in front of him on the ground, only several feet away. It was doubled up, with its back to him, as if injured. The witness noticed a strange vacuum that seemed to pervade the area; he was unable to hear any sounds of traffic from the street. The beings were about four-foot 10 inches tall, with small, slender bodies and large baldheads, encased in glass bubble type helmets, with a metallic band attaching them to the uniforms. The uniforms were tight one-piece suits of a dark green color, with a metallic luster. Their hands were large with fingers that came to points—he had the impression there may have been only three or four fingers on each hand. Their feet were large and booted. The only facial features he could see through the helmet were two large, round luminous eyes. They came within several feet of him to assist their companion, whom they raised and led off toward the alley, assisting him from both sides; his head hung forward on his chest as they moved off. Throughout the encounter, the witness felt no fear-he had the feeling, in fact that they somehow told him they would not harm him. The witness informed the police about the encounter.

They went on to a nearby hut where they then saw several figures “in red and yellow one-piece suits with air tanks on their backs, running around the hut. We were scared because they had red eyes and they were wearing helmets. They ran very quickly, with their knees up high.” The boys, frightened, then ran home. His mother said the incident left him quite confused and frightened.

Someone coming up the stairs and into her bedroom awakened Mrs Rachel Jones; she was unable to see who it was and could not move or speak. She had the impression she was being lifted in some manner and recalled a figure in a bluish suit with a featureless face. She suddenly found herself awake and she rushed into the living room to see if anyone was leaving. She saw no one; it was 0157A; and she was disturbed by the loss of time. Next morning she awoke with a severe headache that persisted for a day or two. During a plane trip the next week, she saw two bright flashes of light that she felt were significant to her, as “some kind of greeting.” Later, a small circular area on her left shoulder puzzled her and her daughter. Later under hypnosis she described seeing a being in her bedroom n the night of the time lapse; it was “ugly” and simply stood there; he wore a tunic type of shirt with an inverted triangle on the front. His eyes had no pupils, and she could see no neck. His nose appeared normal, but his mouth was merely a slit. The ears were small and flat against his head, and he had little hair-just small tufts on each side of the head. His boots and pants were of one-piece. She had the impression that she was taken to Fernan’s Lake were they entered a chamber through a doorway large enough to accommodate both; inside were sealed windows. There were other beings in the room-two similar to the first and one that looked like a human. She felt cold until the latter took her hand. A door opened and she was taken into another room; the walls looked metallic, “like brushed aluminum”—dull but not smooth-and the lighting was from an unseen source. In the ceiling was a wheel like object with tubes and instruments attached. She compared them to surgical instruments. Telepathically she is asked to disrobe for an examination by the man, who identifies himself as “Shovar.” The next thing she remembers is lying on her stomach while a warm light is played over her back; then something wet is placed there, burning and causing much pain. The next thing she recalls is being dressed and sitting up. She is advised that they made “a change” in her that would “make her better for others.” There was an indication in their telepathic exchange that he had met Rachel before, but that she wouldn’t remember; he said they would meet again. Then the three other entities entered the room and the next thing Rachel remembered is being home in bed, wide awake, with the impression someone had been in the room.

Albert Smith, 47, was at his southwest Queensland camp when he observed three lights in the sky; they moved slowly toward him, descending into a copse of nearby trees, each one now seen as a cigar shaped object vertically inclined and sitting on a 5-legged landing gear. A large group of figures were seen emerging amidst dazzling lights. The witness claims that for the next two days 35 human like aliens visited him from a place called Begua. Their leader identified himself as Behnar. The being’s skin was blue gray and the men were dressed in what looked like gray business like suits. One woman told him she was more than 400 years old. The spoke English but only in whispered tones, communicating by hand and telepathically, as well. They seemed to know what he was going to ask before he did. He felt as if the beings had controlled his mind during the encounter. Although the weather was freezing, they wore only light clothes; they stayed mainly by a nearby river, and played games with “lighting balls.” They could disappear and reappear at will. When the witness touched Behnar, it felt like he was touching very soft rubber. When it came time to leave, the witness was not permitted to watch; he found himself immobilized. Just before the three craft departed, they told him they would make it rain; shortly thereafter it began to pour and continued for 8 days.

They then saw another sign indicating that there was a gas station 1 km away. When they got there, it was a very odd station. It had one pump, and a broken down shed. A man emerged as they reached the site, the man was very tall, almost 7-foot tall, and was wearing very worn blue coveralls. The witnesses asked the unusual man if he had seen anything strange in the sky. The man then covered his face with something that looked like a sandwich and replied that nothing had happened all morning. He then walked back into the shed; at no time did the couple see the man’s face. Some missing time was noted by the witnesses and the car’s roof turned pinkish in color. The entire music cassette’s had mysteriously been erased.

Suddenly she became apprehensive and felt that hundreds of eyes were watching her. She felt numerous presences in the forest around her. Looking closely at the trees she noticed numerous strange beings standing around the fields and behind the trees looking at her. She felt as if the beings were attempting to dominate her mind. She felt helpless and could not move at all. The beings were thin, dark, and almost human shaped with large elongated heads, hole like mouths, and small pointy ears. She did not notice a nose. The beings were about 4-feet tall, with long thin dangling arms to their knees. She felt a warming and numbing sensation throughout her body; she fought the feeling and was suddenly able to move. She immediately ran towards her husband and children. They too had felt a strange sensation and saw figures quickly running among the trees. The family quickly picked up their belongings and left the area.

The witness was driving west toward Hulbert when, rounding a curve at 15 mph, she saw standing on the right side of the road a strange figure about 5 ft 5 inches tall, with a normal but slender body, and with large, almond shaped eyes that slanted around the sides of his head. He was wearing a one-piece, metallic dark green suit. As she passed, the car went out of control, hitting the embankment and then lifting into the air. In one ten-foot sweep, it then landed on top of a four-foot high pile of logs, encircled on three sides by trees. She heard “the sound of static electricity” as she went out of control, and felt a jar as the car landed atop the logs. Looking behind her, she saw the figure was standing directly behind the car, which was now hissing. She felt disoriented and lays her head on the steering wheel; when she looked up the figure was gone. She grabbed her purse and the keys and jumped from the car, running the two and a half miles home. Her electric watch stopped at 1650. When she returned with her husband, they found not only her footprints, but those of the stranger, as well, shaped like horse hoofs with a heel, the toes of which seemed to be dug 3/4 of an inch into the hard packed soil. It took heavy equipment to remove the car from the pile of logs; the car showed only a minor scratch, and the witness drove it home. UFO sightings followed in the area.

Hannah Green and her family were driving through the woods when their attention was drawn to two “coach-loads” of troops” who entered the woods by what was known as the “Fleet Exit”. They had to reverse and go back and as they did so they noticed just to their what looked like a small, man-made valley with steep sides about fifteen feet deep. Inside this small valley, there were two clear burn marks, which looked like something had either landed or crashed. The presence of so many soldiers milling about concerned the family so they swung the car around and drove back in the direction from which they had come. As they approached a bend on the road they saw standing on a gentle slope two of the strangest looking “men” Hannah had ever seen. Both were of an impressive height, but were exceedingly thin and dressed in “all in one, white, tight-fitting suits with headgear like the astronauts in the Apollo mission wore”. For a moment the two “men” remained stationary, however, as Hannah and her family watched transfixed, both suddenly broke into a run and headed for a clearing. Most bizarrely of all, as Hannah continued to follow the path of the two men, they disappeared before her very eyes.

The witness could now see that it was a V-shaped craft. The witness shone his flashlight at the object and he was then suddenly struck by a beam of light from the craft that knocked him down, feeling a tingling sensation the witness passed out. At one point he briefly woke up and saw several men staring at him, they examined him silently for a while. Then he blacked out again, he finally woke up several hours later. He felt terrible pains throughout his body and was unable to work for two months. Further inquires revealed that the witness, after being rendered unconscious later woke up in a strange city. The city had wide avenues and beautiful gardens; he could not see a Sun, only empty space above him. He saw many people in the city. These were human-like, all about 30 years of age, five-feet tall, and slender. All were dressed in gray-brown clothing, a few in light blue. The women wore long gowns, the men tunics, and trousers. Most were light skinned and had eyes of different colors, blue, and brown. The women were pretty and had long blond hair. The men had short hair, beards, and mustaches. He was allowed to explore the city, but was always followed by one man. He saw a number of vehicles that resembled Volkswagen Beetles but without motors or steering wheels. He also saw about 20 disc-shaped objects on the ground in an area that looked to him like an airport. He eventually found himself eight miles from where he was originally picked up.

Adrian De Olmos Ordones, 42, was resting on the balcony of his house when he saw a very small figure, 40 feet away across the street, slip under the barbed wire fence of a farm and walk toward a street lamp post 20 feet away. He was 3.5 foot tall, and covered by a green garment that seemed to be inflated with air; a large metallic helmet with a glass front encased the head and came to slight point on top, surmounted by a short extension with a luminous point on top. On his back was a box like a knapsack. The witness also observed that he had only four fingers, that his feet were similar to a duck’s and that he had a tail, not long enough to reach the ground. In his right hand he had a small shiny object. The witness had his daughter bring him pencil and paper so he could make a sketch, but by mistake she turned on the balcony light; the being, startled, ran back to the fence, passed under it, and then stopped and put his hand on his belt. Two red and two blue lights appeared on the backpack with two jets of sparks, aiming downwards, accompanied by a sound like an electric drill. With that, the being ascended 10 feet into the air, lifting his tail, and flew horizontally to a grove of trees 150 yards away. Mr. Olmos, his family, and neighbors watched the lights of the figure as he moved about the trees for 10 minutes, in company with another light. During this period the cattle on the adjacent farm “went crazy,” running about and lowing. The next day, tracks presumably left by the humanoid were found and photographed at the site. A neighbor woman had seen a luminous object descend into the wooded area two days previously.

Terrified, he hid behind a mound, and watched the glowing sphere land. As it landed, its brightness abated, and he could now see that it was “shaped like a straw hat.” A door opened, and a small being about 1 meter in height, emerged, carrying in its left hand a sort of torch emitting a reddish light, and with something else, not distinguishable, in the other hand. The face could not be seen, being encased in a helmet with “antennae,” but the rest of the entire body was “covered with hair.” At that point the rancher appeared to have lost consciousness. Members of his family found him lying there and carried him into the house where he remained in bed for several days, too weak to get up.

A 26-year old and her 13-year old niece, looked out of their bedroom window before retiring and saw 11-12 white lights in a “dipper” shaped formation which were moving about outside the house. One bright light appeared on a hill 300 yards away. They could hear a whooshing sound then two of the lights ascended. Then they heard footsteps from the creek (100 yards away), and saw two small figures floating up and down in front of a tree by the creek. After this they saw several other figures, at various spots, carrying what seemed to be flashlights; they wore close fitting, “skin diver” outfits with glowing green belts. Next a rectangular red luminous object was seen by one of the witnesses to approach close to the creek, and then recedes again. At this point both witnesses developed severe headaches. They then saw one figure on a distant hill shining a light on a tombstone there; the stone seemed to rise up into the air and move back and forth. A taller figure than the others (who were less than 4-foot tall) stood near the light on the hill and called out with an “ooh, ooh” sound; then the others all then approached him and, five minutes later, deployed back into adjacent fields. One of them approached the house, coming under the second story window; he dropped to the ground, as though to conceal himself, then approached the door and rattled its handle. By this time (0345A), the older witness had called her mother, who notified the state police. All of the lights and figures disappeared just prior to the arrival of police, the lights in the sky being indistinguishable from stars. Both witnesses believed only an hour had passed (actually over three hours had elapsed), and they complained of burning eyes and headaches that lasted for two days. Footprints were found in the area.

The witness heard a noise at his door and on opening saw a 4-foot tall humanoid standing there; he was wearing a suit that was light on top and dark on the bottom. He retired indoors to get his gun and flashlight and stepped out on the porch, playing the light around the yard. The flashlight illuminated an object above a nearby tree; then a beam of light from this object knocked the witness back. Following this the witness remained indoors. Both he and his wife felt cramps, and the witness said that his head felt as though it would explode, his body felt numb, and his ears were ringing. He reportedly saw 6 or 7 UFOs throughout the night, and a number of 4-foot tall humanoids, some of which could be heard on the roof. The beings made a chattering sound. All were gone by 0500A. Footprints were seen on the grass, and on the roof a metal louver was partially removed.

A 19-year old youth was camping with a friend along the edge of Clowridge Reservoir. Some time before dawn he went to the water’s edge for some drinking water, taking his rifle with him. As he bent down over the breakwater he noticed a strange figure standing about 100 yards from him. The figure was at least 8-foot tall and dressed completely in a white robe, and had a beard and bushy hair. The figure stood motionless staring out over the water and did not seem to noticed the witness, who then called out to his friend; as he did so, the figure vanished. A family in the area had reported seeing lights during the summer.

A 39-year old man reportedly encountered several aliens ranging from 1.6 m to 3 m in height, of stumpy build, light pink skin, with very flat noses, with nostrils sharply turned up. Their eyes were almost human-like. They were dressed in dull-gray tight-fitting overalls with dark covering cloaks over their shoulders. Apparently they could smile and possessed a “sense” of humor. Communication was by both telepathy and at brief times by voice. He was taken inside an egg-shaped craft no less than 10 m in length. The doors of the object opened up like an elevator. A bright white light surrounded the craft. Inside he could see a control panel and a large screen. He was transported onboard a “mothership” shaped like an “L” that was apparently orbiting the earth. The large ship had numerous small portholes. He was then transported to their planet. The landscape on the alien planet was described as deserted. The buildings resembled shiny polished blocks, of some sort of yellowish plastic. He was paralyzed for some time and most of his memory was erased.

Two witnesses involved in a previous encounter, watched 6 or 7 humanoids with glowing green belts, similar to those they had seen the week before. Two of them had grayish glowing belts, and one of the witnesses saw two normal sized human figures that glowed a silvery white instead of green. After an hour of observation they woke a third witness, who saw only blue green lights. When they shone a flashlight beam on one of the figures, it disappeared, but was still there when the beam was removed. It gradually became foggy and at 0430A they went to bed, but the two original witnesses thought they could hear the sound of a woman screaming three times, and a door slamming. They again experienced headaches and ringing in their ears. The third witness, who heard a noise like someone chiseling rock and a high pitched chirping sound, did not suffer from headache. They saw no UFOs that night, but others reported objects locally on subsequent nights.

Caferina Vargas Martin, 20, of Escalada, left her home at 1930 to walk to her grandmother’s house at La Corte, about 3 km distant. The pathway between the two villages winds along a creek at the foot of a mountain. With much vegetation along the way. While she was walking along this pathway, at about 1955 she was momentarily blinded by a bright reflection of light; about 20 meters further on, another flash of light shone in her face. Now she believed it was a bicycle headlight, but she suddenly felt her strength ebb away as the light source was replaced by two strange figures-a woman of two meters height and a slightly shorter man. The woman had long platinum hair that hung to the middle of her back; the man’s was shorter and slightly disordered. Their facial features were “repulsive” to the witness; the woman had very large eyes, only two holes where her nose should be, and a slit like mouth that moved without opening. Both figures were dressed in tunic like garments; hers was of a dark green color, but very brilliant, as if made up of many little points of light, and wide sleeves extended to her hands. The tunic extended to the ground so her feet were not seen. The man’s tunic was of a light chestnut color, also with brightly reflecting points of light; it extended to his knees, below which was a narrow, darker tunic that extended to the ground. Their skin was citron yellow color. While the woman gesticulated with her arms, both beings remained indifferent to the witness’s presence. Feeling faint, the witness sat down on a rock; then she passed out. When she came to, there was no one there, and it was then dark. Frightened and upset, she ran back home. It was 2050 when she arrived. The witness suffered from shock and had nightmares for the next several nights, and had to be treated by doctors. Some personal belongings also turned up missing.

Tom Dawson, 63 and retired, was walking with his two dogs from his trailer home to a nearby farm when a “circular shaped space ship” with a dome and portholes, 40-50 ft in diameter and 12-14 ft high, set down in a field in front of him, hovering several feet off the ground. He found he was unable to move a muscle, and his dogs, as well as the cattle in the field, seemed likewise to be immobilized. A hatch in the object opened, a ramp was extended, and 7 strange looking humans 5 ft tall emerged, five men and two women. The first to leave stepped down cautiously, as if to test the solidity of the ground; then the rest followed, with two taking up sentry positions at the hatch. They were all hairless, with skin “as white as a flour sack,” their noses were sharp and turned up, their ears were pointed, and they had no necks. One of the men and one of the women were completely nude. The clothing of the rest-males and females alike-was very beautiful with silk like shoes with pointed, turned up toes. The humanoids cautiously approached Dawson, and gave him a kind of physical examination, placing on his head a skullcap with cords connecting it to a hoop bearing dials. They dropped his trousers and lifted his shirt for the examination, passing the hoop over his body. While the examination was in progress, a loud voice came from the object, shouting three times ” I am Jimmy Hoffa” (!) a fourth repetition was cut off, and the voice was not heard again. After completing the examination, all returned to the craft except two men, who walked about 10 feet away and “went into a conference.” They had very shrill voices, and although Dawson was unable to comprehend what it was they said, he thought he heard the word “Jupiter.” He had the impression they were debating whether or not to take him onboard; at any rate, they did not, and the leader passed his palm across his chest as though to signal good-bye. They reentered the ship, closed the hatch, and took off. He saw the object rise to 75 feet, and then in a wink it was out of sight. Dawson was then freed of his paralysis; he ran directly to his next-door neighbor, but was so excited he could say nothing more than “space ship!” He was taken to a hospital and treated for hysteria.

His next memory was of being floated down his stairway, out the front door, up over his neighbor’s yard. Then he would be standing in a gas station parking lot. The little gray being, with large head, large black eyes and very thin would play with him and beckon the witness to follow him.

Walking on near a quarry, they saw a figure over two meters tall wearing a silvery close fitting coverall and a helmet. Where the eyes should be were two blinking orange lights. The witnesses fled back to Sturno, where they found three other friends, and returned in a car. All five saw the strange being advancing and withdrawing, with mechanical movements, on a steep slope. It seemed to stand at an angle, perpendicular to the slope. The car was not driven into the abandoned quarry, which appeared to be lighted as if by a halo, they became frightened and sped back to Sturno, returning with two more witnesses; the humanoid was still there, coming and going with emissions of intermittent light from its helmet. When one of the parties flashed a light on the figure, it emitted sounds like “radio signals” it approached the car and the sounds ceased. It came no closer than 15 feet, and beckoned, as though for the witnesses to follow. Finally, at about 0330A, it emitted a blinding light from its helmet and disappeared. The outline of an object with portholes had been seen further down the slope. After the flash, the men fled back to the village, when they again returned, everything was gone.

As they came to the top of hill Kate and her family all observed a huge orange light diffused by cloud, to their left hand side and at the far end of Windwhistle Hill. It seemed to be right beside the road, not very high up, and was partially obscured by cloud. As they drove nearer to the light, they could see it was massive and totally static and very low and bright. She describes it as being cigar shaped and vast in size, maybe 200-300 feet. The next thing they were clearly aware of was seeing a cyclist’s headlamp coming the other way, which seemed to appear from nowhere, and continued on the road to Crewkerne. When they arrived home they were aware of an obvious time lapse. Years later they were able to remember that the vehicle engine had died and the headlights had gone off. The husband attempted to start the car but nothing happened. Everything appeared to be in slow motion. One of the son’s last memories was of seeing a dark shape outside the car, beside the window. He describes it as being very tall and bending towards the window looking in, and having the impression that the shape was human, although he knew it wasn’t. The other brother next memory was of looking back at the orange light and seeing the headlamp coming towards them only a few yards away.

A few days after the above incident, Kate and her family were once again making the journey back to their home, and as they were coming over the brow of the same hill, and about 300-300 yards from the first incident, they saw in front of them on the left hand verge, two people, one who appeared to be lying down, and the other standing. They slowed down and were stunned to see that the person standing up took one step out in front of them…one foot remained on the grass verge at the roadside and the other foot was right over the center of the road. Kate described the figure as being “abnormally tall” with legs that were horrendously long and thin. Her husband swerved to the far side of the road, and around the figure, and they kept on driving and did not look back.

A young man named Luis was hunting and had been hiding in the brush waiting for his prey when he heard a loud noise, then a bright light descended over the area. Looking up he saw a bright object resembling the cabin of a Boeing 737. Suddenly a door opened and a figure stepped out, descending to the ground in a beam of light. The creature was human like. Frightened Luis hid behind a tree an observed the creature as it walked around inspecting the area, it illuminated the area with a red beam of light that appeared to emerge from the palm of its hand. Suddenly the creature turned and walked in the direction where the witness had been hiding, apparently knowing he was there. Terrified Luis ran from the area towards the nearby river. At the same moment the creature turned around and walked back and levitated back into the object. As Luis ran from the area other witnesses saw him running away from the area, they saw him run into a boat as the object followed him and hovered overhead, again the humanoid came out of the object and observed the boat and the terrified witness within. Soon the humanoid went back inside the object, which promptly took off at high speed. The humanoid was described as short and very muscular with a large head and wearing tight-fitting dark clothing. The witness, Luis, and a 9-year-old boy later disappeared under mysterious circumstances after a UFO sighting.

As a result of an anonymous telephone call the investigator went to the scene of a previous humanoid encounter, with his photographic equipment. At Cabin Hill, he heard a call like “Oyy,” and saw, about 100 yards away, the head and torso of a strange figure behind some bushes. The figure was dressed in a silver one-piece suit and wore a round, white helmet with a full-face visor. A second similar figure then appeared; both stepped out in full view from behind the bushes and stared at the witness. While the witness fumbled for his camera, the two beings disappeared.

The witness felt a powerful urge to look outside and as she did, she suddenly received a mental image of a very dark metallic object with vertical grooves around its circumference hovering overhead. The witness felt that the object was from another dimension, she felt like she was being watched. She went back to the kitchen, but returned later to still see the image of the craft. At this point she also received a mental image of a humanoid figure and face. The face was long and metallic in appearance, flat and featureless; it had long slit like eyes, a straight nose, and a slit for a mouth. The entity wore a tight fitting jumpsuit with a large triangular symbol on the chest area; it had a belt with a red ruby like stone on its center. The being and craft eventually vanished.

One of the figures landed on the witness balcony and communicated with her, explaining that he was an extraterrestrial who was just camouflaged as a soldier. During the two-hour conversation the being spoke of the several reasons they were here on earth. At one point the being gradually changed his appearance to that of an acquaintance, which the witness liked and asked the witness if she wanted to have sex, she refused.

Sure enough he then saw the figure of man that was leaning down on him. The figure had enormous deep-set eyes about 7cm in width that stared at the witness unblinking. In front of the eyes the witness noticed what appeared to be a transparent visor. No other facial details could be seen; the body seemed disproportionately narrow or thin. He wore a tight fitting outfit that shone with a metallic luster. There were no buttons, collars or seams. Terrified, the witness asked the stranger twice who he was but received no reply. The witness was able to yell thus waking up his friend G C Aliyevna, but ashamed the witness refused to answer, in the meantime the humanoid remained standing in the room immobile. Soon the witness quietly fell asleep. Another scout also reported seeing a similar or the same entity and further was able to describe the yes as blue in color, with thin and narrow facial features. Another witness saw a luminous spot floating in the room, which became wavy and disappeared.

The face was human like, with slightly slanted eyes, a triangular shaped sharp featured face, with thin lips, and dark hair. Panic stricken the witness slowly began to move away then jumped to his feet punching the wall and screaming at the same time, apparently in order to attract the attention of other sleeping family members.

Antonio La Rubia, 33, a bus driver, was en route to work when he saw in a field a flying saucer that looked like an enormous hat. Frightened, he prepared to run when a blue light lit up the area; at the same time three very odd figures materialized nearby; he found he could not move. The figures were about four-foot tall, with football shaped heads or helmets surmounted by a tall antenna; the only features were a row of shiny small mirror like sections around the center of the head, from which blue flashes were emitted. They had stocky bodies and long elephant trunk like arms ending in a single digit. The bodies were covered by a rough metallic surface the witness believed could have been the body surface, or skin. Their bodies were rounded at the bottom and surmounted a single leg, like a pedestal, with a rounded base. The three surrounded La Rubia and he was caught in an invisible glass or “bell jar.” The robots floated above the ground and one pointed a syringe like device at him and he began to move toward the object; the next thing he knew he was inside with no recollection of how he entered it. He was in a white “aluminum” corridor, with one transparent wall, through which he could see the field from which he had just come. Two figures went one way, the third another. He could see through the transparent wall that the object was airborne. A bright blue light came on and he found himself in a large circular hall. There were a dozen similar entities on each side of the hall; they reminded him of children sitting in a schoolroom on single legged chairs. Up until now he had been unable to speak, but suddenly he found his voice and began screaming, “Who are you? What do you want from me?” The figures fell back at the sound and tumbled allover the floor; they lifted their single digits to the antennae on their heads and held them. These tips rotated so rapidly that only when they held them could he see them clearly. He noticed a small box like device standing on two poles that raised it to about the height of the witness chest; antennae jutted up from each end. A receptacle stood atop the box, and the entities removed small devices from belts around their waists and placed them in this container, pushing a key on the box. At this, a scene would appear on the wall in moving color; the first showed the witness, lying naked, on an unseen table, while he was examined by a being with a small bluish light; another examined his head. Another “slide” was projected and showed La Rubia, still naked, standing alone. Other images included a view of the witness dressed, carrying a shopping bag, his teeth chattering; another showed a horse and cart on a dirt road, with a peasant, barefoot, wearing a straw hat. A picture of him next to an orange ball; then next to a blue ball beside which stood another entity; an image of a big dog attacking one of the entities; the being began melting; from top to bottom, until it was nothing but a porridge like substance. Then one of the entities moved toward the dog and pointed a syringe like device at the animal and it too began melting, after turning blue. A UFO “factory” was displayed; a train entering a tunnel; a view of a busy Rio thoroughfare. One scene showed La Rubia vomiting and defecating into his clothes. During this display, an entity approached and pointed a syringe like implement at him; his arm raised against his will and the syringe was stuck into his middle finger, taking a blood sample, leaving no mark; the entity then pointed it at a wall and drew three red circles intersected with an “L.” The next thing he remembered was being thrown overboard, where he found himself once again in the street, with all his belongings, as well as one of the beings. His watch had stopped at 0220A; the being vanished and the object was ascending out of view. His head was spinning and he was burning. It was 0355A. The witness was eventually taken to a hospital where he suffered from sporadically high temperatures and insatiable thirst.

They could make out the outline of moving shadows inside the domed windows which went all the around the bottom of the craft. The craft was about 50 ft across and had a red or orange ring around it, which seemed to be spinning. The blue light was coming from what appeared to be a dome. The light began to spin and as it did so, it became brighter. Suddenly the orange ring started to spin faster and faster as the machine rose straight up. As it picked up speed, the ring started to turn into a bright red. It made a whistling sound as it left.

The she heard a humming sound, and, looking off toward the sea, saw a large saucer shaped object swooping upwards above neighboring gardens and headed in her direction. The object was bright and shiny, metallic, and in a dome on top, through square windows, she saw two figures. It stopped a short distance away and tilted downward toward her. One of the figures seemed to be at a control panel, and the other pointed at her. The light was so bright that the witness had to shield her eyes with her hands. The figures wore silver suits with tight helmets that came to a point over their noses. After a brief time the object zoomed off into the sky. A week after the sighting the skin on her hands began scaling—a problem she had not had before.

7-year old Martin Rodriguez was playing hide and seek in the street with a group of friends. Martin and Fernando Carabelos ran towards an old corral near the N-122 motorway in search for a place to hide. The boys walked together alongside the wall of the deserted corral. The place was known for being a refuge for villains and vagabonds and it was getting dark, so young Martin did his usual thing before entering it himself: he took a large stone from the ground and hurled it over the wall, hoping that this would frighten off any intruders. On this occasion, however the stone hit something entirely unexpected, producing a metallic noise that the boys did not recognize at all. Martin walked gingerly into the corral to see what was there. Next to the wall, as if concealed, he saw a strange metal object in the shape of an inverted tear or pear, resting on three thick legs. 2.80 meters tall by around 1.95 wide, the machine had three circular windows through which pink and blue lights were emitted. In the center there was a closed door, divided in two like those of some lifts. After a few moments the object began to rise from the ground and a fine beam of light came from it, aimed at Martin. Fernando tried desperately to grab his friend and drag him away from the light but to no avail. Martin was frozen to the spot, clutching his belly. Fernando ran out of the corral in a panic, shouting to their other friends to come quickly and help, but meanwhile Martin was beginning to lose consciousness and fall backwards. The last thing he could remember was watching the pear-shaped artifact rise higher into the sky, its landing gear retracting into its body as it went. They found Martin semi-conscious, he could not speak, and his skin seemed to have turned yellow. His pupils were completely dilated. While a doctor was attending to the boy, his father and a friend went to the place where the object had been seen and found the earth burnt. The soil gave off strong sulfur like smell. In a hospital at Valladolid Martin’s symptoms at that time included loss of vision and vomiting, and soon entered into a coma. A total of fourteen life or death surgical operations had to be carried out on the seven-year-old boy, thirteen of which involved opening his skull through a process of trepanation. (I though I should include this incredible encounter).

Mr. Olmos, on his way to work in his van, felt a wave of heat fill the cab and stopped the vehicle to check for fire. As he got out, he heard a kind of “shrieking noise,” like “monkeys chattering” together; at the same time, a very intense light appeared before him. Turning to flee, he ran right into the back of the van, where he found himself pinned to it, arms flung out against the sides and unable to move anything but his eyes. The light source came form a whirling cloud of vapor about 30 feet from him and 10 feet above the ground. Out of this whirling mass of little particles emerged two small grotesque figures, suspended above the ground; they approached the witness, talking incomprehensibly, one with the other. They were less than 4-foot tall and wore tight one-piece suits over very delicate bodies. One was green the other white. The suits were belted with a blinking light where the buckle would be. They both wore a kind of pendant hanging loosely about their necks. Their long oval faces, of a reddish hue, were decorated with a small oval stone on the forehead; eyes were dark and slanted, like Orientals, and their noses were long and slight with two nostrils. Their mouths were slits. They somehow resembled frogs. One held a box in wrinkled hand that had fingers of the same length. Using this box, one of the beings examined the witness. They never touched him. Both beings were constantly surrounded by a kind of mist, and when they spoke, a kind of frost came from their mouths. The air around the witness felt hot and heavy and he felt as if he was losing consciousness. The examination lasted only briefly and the witness believed he was paralyzed for no more than two minutes. Then the whirling clouds began to increase, the figurers receded towards the light source and disappeared in the swirling particles, as they had first appeared. The witness felt stiff and sore following the ordeal, symptoms that lasted for two days.

Mrs Foster and her daughter, Lori, who was at the wheel, were driving on Patterson Road to go shopping. As they neared Pine River Road, a being leaped out from the right side of the road in an arc about 4 feet high, and landing in the middle of the road. It then rebounded into the air and in a second leap disappeared into the underbrush on the left side of the road. Each leap must have been 30 feet. Lori slammed on the brakes when the figure hit the road, although the women were 200 feet from the figure. It was upright and of slender build, a smooth, dull black color from head to foot. Torso, neck, and head were of normal human proportions. It was the size of and build of a slender teenaged boy, but was similar to a kangaroo in the large jumps it executed. If the figure had arms, they were not visible to either woman. Lori drove ahead to the spot where it had landed, but they could see no sign of it. Both were too frightened to get out and look for it. The previous year there had been a series of UFO sightings in the area.

Three frightened men ran into a local hotel reporting that 3 objects had chased them. Eight people went out and observed 3 round pulsating green and red objects landing and taking off in a paddock some distance away. There seemed to be a mist around them. One of the witnesses saw figures or “objects” on the ground around the UFOs. Every time the witnesses shone a spotlight on the figures they disappeared. They were human sized and did not resemble animals. It was to dark to see any further details.

Driving to Hemliden Mountain, about 10 km north of the town, Kurt Nilsson experienced heavy interference on his car’s short wave radio; at the radio transmitting station atop the mountain he found it so bad he had to break off communications with his colleague. He then noticed a pale blue, domed object, several meters in diameter, in a hollow some 100 meters away. In front of the object, three figures one meter tall, grayish in color, and illuminated by the light of the object, were observed; they appeared to be wearing “spacesuits.” When Nilsson maneuvered his car so that he could throw his headlights on them, the scene went black, as the lights went off. After about a minute, the object reappeared in bright light and, frightened, Nilsson drove off. He got only 50 meters before the car stopped by itself, and he saw the same three figures standing now in the road ahead of him. The figure in the center had a spade like device, which he turned completely around, so that his arms were crossed; the figures on either side focused their gaze on the object. It was when this implement was turned that the car engine stopped. He switched off the lights to start the engine, which turned right over, and he reversed in darkness for about 10 meters. When he turned the lights on, the figures were gone. He hurried straight home, and found his watch had stopped at 2030, whereas the clock in the house read 2050.

Three witnesses, including two 14 year olds, Johny Myhr and Frank Sverre Mandt, both deaf sighted an object hovering and then descend behind some bushes. After about 10 seconds it rose again, the boys ran to the nearby Alm school, noticing the object ascending at a 40-degree angle. The boys saw several windows, and what appeared to be a human like person behind one of the windows. Later tracks were found in the newly ploughed field. Each track was rectangular shaped with round corners, and measured 14.cm by 36 cm with a depth of 10 cm., arranged in a triangular shape.

Curious they approached a small window and as they did, the beam shot in through and made straight for Silvia, throwing her into a sort of benumbed trance like state. Silvia, who was pregnant at the time, then fainted. Two entities then entered the house, carrying something resembling a gold flashlight and again the beam struck Silvia, this time hitting her in the left arm at wrist level. Benedito ran to a neighbor’s house and was also briefly paralyzed by a light beam. Both husband and wife were later taken to a local hospital were they both recovered.

Mrs Pauline Coombs, her mother, and her four children were driving back to their Ripperston Farm home when her mother called their attention to a whitish disk like object over their car, flying in the direction of the sea; curious the women drove in the direction of the shore, then crossed two fields to get to the water’s edge. Several hundred yards off shore is an outcrop of rock called Stack Rocks, rising up 80 to 100 feet from the water. They could not see the UFO, but they did see two humanoid figures walking about on the rocks. They were dressed in silvery outfits similar to a frogman’s wetsuit; their heads (or helmets) were extremely large and rectangular in shape, rounded at the corners, with no observable features. They appeared to be looking for something. A “door” appeared on the right hand face of the rocks, sliding alternately open and shut like the door of a dumbwaiter. One of the figures entered this doorway and appeared to descend a stairway, disappearing in the darkened interior, and then reappearing once again. The stairway was not visible to the viewers. On this final descent, the door closed and disappeared from view. To the left side of the rocks, the second figure appeared to “walk” out over the water’s surface, finally disappearing behind the left side of the rocks. The display had lasted for 15 minutes.

He tried again to restart the truck but could not. The pink light went out and he could see through the tree a large round object on the ground. In a moment he saw a figure walking toward him in high, loping strides. Taller than a normal sized man, the figure had a long face that took up two thirds of its entire height, and long arms that dangled almost to the ground; its legs were short and squat. The creature stopped upon seeing the witness, and the witness saw two long, oval, yellow eyes that moved up and down, apparently looking at him. Then, with an “oohing” sound, the creature turned and ran. Etterof ran to his truck and as he tried the engine, he saw the pink light ascend into the sky; as soon as it vanished from sight, the engine turned over. Others in Rockland reportedly saw the pink-lighted object fly over.

She described the woman as “totally perfect”, about 5’9″, slender, with beautiful flowing, long, slightly curled hair, split down the middle. She was wearing a long, long sleeved white dress. The witness stared at her intently and the woman smiled at her a very intense feeling of love flowed from her eyes, directed at the witness. It was so powerful and intense that tears rolled down her face.

He had gone to bed and although there was no noise, he was suddenly awakened, aware something was in the room. Glancing toward the door, he saw five glowing pink humanoid forms gliding into the room. They were slender, about 5-foot tall, and moved in a slightly bent forward position, as though carrying weights on their shoulders. Four of them sat in four chairs that were near the bed; the fifth approached to within a foot of the bedside; all stared at Faber but none uttered a word, although the witness “felt or heard” in some inexplicable way an expression of anger or hatred from the entities for making his Bigfoot sighting public. At this point Faber leaned over and snapped on the bed lamp; he could still see them and their angry expression, and in a panic of fear began screaming at them to get out and stay out. They did just that, and he has not been bothered by anything again.

A 22-year old man was taking his dog out for a walk when his dog suddenly drew his attention to a tall white figure standing behind a fence. The figure was about 8-foot tall apparently wearing a white padded “space suit” that was self-luminous, he also wore a visor. The figure walked stiffly with one hand raised. The witness ran home closely followed by his dog.

Miguel Herrero Sierra, 34, was driving his pickup truck on the highway near Guadalajara when suddenly the lights and motor went out. He managed to pull to the side of the road but was unable to find anything wrong with the vehicle. He decided to wait in the truck until dawn, when he could get help; a figure dressed in what appeared to be a diver’s outfit called to him from 50 meters away. The man invited Herrero to accompany him and he was led to a strange craft shaped like a hat, under which was a cylinder that extended to the ground. Inside the craft the witness found himself in a room 14 meters in diameter with walls similar to crystal or plastic. Herrero stayed inside approximately three hours talking telepathically with the entities onboard. Then he found himself outside the craft again, and noticed a puncture wound in his arm, as if they had taken a blood sample. He did not recall they doing so.

Awakened by a bright light outside his bedroom window, Joe Guisti, 32, got up to investigate; slipping into his trousers, he noted the time and got a flashlight and went out into the backyard; about five steps into the yard he heard a gurgling sound and his flashlight went out for no reason. He immediately observed two dimly illuminated figures not 8 feet from him—one was 10-foot tall, the other 4.5 to 5-foot tall; they appeared to have a feathery surface. He saw no features. Both figures seemed to be approaching him with a swaying motion; alarmed, he threw his flashlight at the larger figure; there was a flash of blue light as it struck, and he heard it hit. He turned and ran back into the house. The clock in the kitchen said 0420A; no more than ten minutes had elapsed since he had seen the time in his bedroom. Unable to sleep the remainder of the night, he finally got up after his wife left for work and went out into the yard to look for his flashlight. He observed two sets of fresh tracks in the snow leading toward the swimming pool, apparently passing through a chain link fence around the pool. The tracks disappeared in the shallow end of the pool. The next day the witness had “dreams” about his encounter, in which he could recall brief bits of an exchange of questions and answers between him and the two figures.

The witness, a heart patient, had gotten up to attend to his ill wife and was out in the terrace washing a bucket, when he noticed three approaching flickering multicolored lights that descended slowly on to the terrace. As they touched the floor they suddenly transformed themselves into three little man like figures. The little men approached the witness and spoke in a rapid, high-pitched tone. They were described as 3-foot tall, with large faces and ears, short arms and legs. They wore blue, tight fitting diving suits. The beings stared at the witness with large luminous eyes. The witness heard one of them say, “He is sick cure him,” then one placed his hand on the witness chest. The witness did not feel anything but did see some flickering lights cavorting around his chest area. The three little men then joined hands, transformed themselves back into luminous orbs of light and then rose up and disappeared behind a nearby wooded hill. (The witness was apparently cured of his cardiac problems.)

Time: 1930
In a rural wooded area two witnesses observed an oval shaped craft with a string of lights on the top and bottom, circling overhead. The witnesses ran home to get a flashlight and returned later to see a similar object hovering at treetop level about 50 yards away. The object then began to spin, tilted downwards and descended below the trees. Moments later the witnesses detected a strange odor in the vicinity resembling decaying flesh. They then heard a strange whistling sound and saw an eight-foot tall ape like creature standing nearby looking at them. The creature had light brown hair, an egg shaped head; long neck, long dangling arms and two glowing white eyes. The creature then turned and bolted into the brush. Moments later the witnesses briefly observed a bright white flash of light coming from the woods. Later they also heard several loud booms in the vicinity.
