1978 HUMANOID SIGHTING REPORTS Compiled by Albert Rosales

Albert Rosales: garuda79@att.net

1978 Humanoid Reports, the year the bottom dropped out. As far as range and variety of incidents 1978 led the 70’s decade. All types of humanoids were reported worldwide and in all types of situations. Besides your standard abductions, there were numerous types of entities reported. Humanoid waves were reported from Italy, France, England, Malaysia, Spain, etc. The first reports coming from behind what it used to be the Iron curtain were beginning to emerge; repeated abductions were reported from Brazil. Bizarre incidents and abductions surfaced from Australia and New Zealand. Reports from previously slow areas became commonplace. High Strangeness was at its height. An era of change was looming, the 80’s were just around the corner. In the US the reports were steady and consistently of a high strangeness nature, the ominous manimal-bigfoot-para-ape connection became more evident. A well documented possibly retrieval of a dead humanoid was reported in New Jersey early on the year, but it was only the beginning. It was an unprecedented year; it took 11 years to almost equal the quality and amount of reports recorded for 1978. Following is the list of the known 1978 reports.

Two young boys, Barry Scott, and Russell Lee were camping in the woods, when they heard something tramping down the hill. When they looked out of their tent, they saw something that floated more than it walked. Each boy apparently saw something different. Barry saw a bell shaped white being, and Russell saw something he described as “like the Virgin Mary.” Whatever it was, the entity vanished among the trees, leaving the two boys in a state of bewildered excitement.

Mendelejew W Charitonow reported seeing in a garden close to some woods a small transparent object resting on the ground. The object appeared to be made out of two sections, in one he could see a seat in what appeared to be a command console. The witness approached and saw 3 “perfect humans” inside, except for the faces, which were somehow “different.” He invited the humanoids to come out. But apparently he was taken inside where he was sat at a console and saw a square keyboard that apparently controlled the ship. He was then given a ride in the object and eventually released on the same field.

The 18-year old witness, who had earlier felt a strange compulsion to leave for the weekend and rent a room at an isolated, old hotel on the coast, was in her room, which overlooked the water, sitting on a chair, as it was getting dark. After about an hour she noticed a very bright light up in the sky that seemed to be moving in her direction. The bright object suddenly began to descend and began hovering very close to the window, only about 50 feet above the water. Then after an apparent time lapse, she found herself opening her eyes and now lying flat on her bed, it was now daylight and she soon was stunned to learn that two days had passed without her remembering anything. She went back home and as she sat in her room pondering what had happened, an avalanche of thoughts poured into her brain. She soon remembered that as she sat in the chair staring at the light she suddenly found herself onboard of what appeared to be a “spacecraft.” Disoriented she watched a group of “people” standing in front of her. There were two men and three women, the men were the closest to her, and the women just a few feet behind them. She described the humanoids as the most beautiful people she had ever seen. They all had jet black hair, and the most pearl/blue piercing eyes she had ever seen, their skin was extremely pale and their complexions flawless. Feeling scared she reached into her hand bag and grabbed a pair of scissors, holding them in both hands straight in front of her, in a threatening gesture. She yelled at the “aliens” not to come any closer to her. The man nearest to her simply smiled, then very slowly began to raise his arm until it was straight out in front of him. The scissors that the witness was holding suddenly began to melt; each part of the scissors began to roll back in a curling motion, until they wound up in a very tight curl. The man closest to her was the only one to speak and told the witness not to worry that they were not going to hurt her that they only needed to look at something. The same man told her that they needed to look at her hands. He then gestured for her to follow and walked on a corridor that had a slight elevation upside. After about 10 feet they reached what appeared to be an alcove or indentation on the wall. There was a small apparatus there that looked like a mirrored surface, 2′ by 2′. She was asked to place her hands on top of the machine, as they needed to get a record. The man then walked down the corridor and left the witness alone. The man returned then gesture at the witness to again follow him down the corridor. They stopped beside a room and was told to please wait there. Curious she entered the room, and noticed that it was shaped somewhat like a half diamond, with slanting walls and ceiling. The entire room was an odd red/rust color. She then walked out of the room and followed the corridor in an upward direction. The corridor came up to a very large room, that was nearly pitch black, and the only thing in the entire room was a very comfortable looking recliner chair. She approached the chair and placed her hand on the armrest, immediately the room seem to change, and she felt “alone in the Universe.” She repeated this several times but soon the now familiar man appeared and told her not to touch the chair again and to follow him, as she walked down the corridor again, she suddenly found herself on the bed back at the hotel.

The witness was driving in a remote area when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle, he drove on until he came up to the top of a hill, and there he was commanded to stop. He left the car and found himself walking on a valley that was filled with light. He was then ordered to climb a nearby mountain; it took him five hours to reach the top. He did not recall much after that and had one hour of missing time. Later under hypnosis he recalled that as he was walking on the valley a bright beam of light shone on him. He then saw ten beings dressed in white standing in a circle. The beings were five-foot five inches tall, wearing skintight outfits that covered their faces. Their heads were elongated and they had a large round black lens over the eye area, their mouths were slit like and the noses were holes. They had small chests and thin arms. He was then taken onboard an object where he was examined and some robot like beings cut inside his nose. When the witness was released he saw two hovering objects one larger than the other.

John Cornett and three friends were driving on Dollarsville road when they saw a huge paneled craft with different types of lights on its hull descending slowly over the area. They pulled off to the side of the road and saw the craft descend lower. They could now see that it had a segmented hull with numerous viewing ports. A small white sphere shot away from the craft leaving a green tracer behind, this apparently bothered the witness eyes. John Cornett left the vehicle and felt mental communication from the craft. He could now also see several figures moving behind the viewing panels, these were very tall with large heads, he could see blue lighting inside the craft. The craft suddenly shot away towards the north at high speed shooting a long sheet of flame from its rear.

One night a platoon of soldiers were conducting war games in the forest, when the truck malfunctioned and lost all power. One soldier, Edwin Godoy, was ordered to stay behind with the truck as the other men left on foot. Soon after midnight he noticed a figure some 300 meters away from him, standing next to some pine trees in the forest. The figure was very tall, and its body was completely covered with hair. It had dark long grayish hair all over its body and it stood next to the pine trees swinging its body sideways while looking straight at Godoy. It was very strongly built and his eyes glowed red in the dark. The figure suddenly began running towards the witness. After yelling at the figure to stop, he fired a shot into the air then at the figure. The hairy figure grabbed its chest and emitted a loud moan, stopped and then ran to his right disappearing into the forest. Godoy locked himself in the truck until the morning. Later special army units found a peculiar green liquid in the area, believed to have been blood from the creature.

The two witnesses, twin boys were standing in the hallway when one twin began felling very odd. It felt like an earth tremor was striking. There were vibrations and tremors running through him. His brother began feeling the same thing too. The atmosphere of the house had altered, it felt tense and silent. Even the dogs appeared to be affected. Then a bright light appeared as a reflection in the frosted glass of the doorway. At the same time a small figure ran through the hall and headed upstairs. Only one of the twins saw the figure, which was described as 3-feet tall and dressed in an all black jumpsuit with a helmet covering the head. The dog suddenly went berserk and then headed off into a corner remaining there whimpering and cowering. One of the twins obtained a knife and searched the house for the intruder, of course nothing was found.

The witness was lying down on his bed attempting to go to sleep when he began to feel an unusual spinning sensation. His whole body appeared to be vibrating. As his mind began to clear he became aware of standing inside what he assumed was a “spaceship,” the surroundings were pulsating with a brilliant light. He felt a mental message and saw a group of seven beings standing directly in front of him, both male and female. Some stood around and others were manipulating some sort of control. One of the beings that was human in appearance and wore a pure white suit looked at the witness with the most intense and penetrating eyes he ever witnesses. A beautiful glow surrounded the beings and the witness felt a sense of peace emanating from them. The white-garbed beings, that seemed to be the leader communicated with the witness by using telepathy. He spoke of the energy used to propel their ship and of many other subjects including the cosmic mind and creation. Soon he found himself back on his bed with a clear memory of all that had transpired.

Later that evening Mrs C was suddenly aware of a “monk-like” hooded figure about 6 ft tall and only three ft from the bed. The white form had no visible face, and simply stood by the bedside with its arms at its sides. It stood motionless for 4 minutes, during which time Mrs C did not say a word to her husband. The next morning he grudgingly admitted he had seen it too.

A military man and his wife were driving on Highway 77 on his way to Ohio when as they went over a hill they came upon a line of black robed figures walking across the highway. There was no way in this dark road that the figures could not see the vehicle headlights. Before the driver could react, she drove the vehicle right between two of the walking figures. The figures did not flinch or show any reaction. Stunned they noticed that further back in the line, was a man with a “lumberjack” shirt on, unbuttoned, walking with them. The witnesses were frightened since there had been numerous “cattle mutilations” in the area around the same time. They kept on driving and left the area.

A couple of students were near the Portland State College campus near an old tunnel system coming from the hills. They heard a noise coming out of the sewer hole, and saw what they describe as a “mole man” come out of the hole. It was not hairy, had big eyes, fangs, a long snout, three claws for the feet, but these were circular, and appeared not to be worn out. It also had a small hairy tail. Both students had the feeling that the thing psychically knew them, and that it was conscious. It ran back into the hole when they threw rocks at it.

A certain N, a translator, went to bed one late night in her Moscow flat when suddenly her two lap dogs started to whine and skulking in a corner. A few minutes later there appeared in front of a rather large window an enormously tall figure. N had no time to react as she heard (not in her ears, but rather at the nape of her neck, as she puts it) a very definite phrase thrice repeated, “I need your mind, I need your mind, I need your mind”. The voice was calm, masculine, mechanical, and somewhat robot-like. Next she felt a sharp pain in the back of her head and in both temples and fainted. Having not reported to her office the next day, the worried colleagues went to her place after the working day. Thy heard the dogs whining behind the door. They opened the door with the help of the police and found N lying on the floor unable to move. With the help of doctors she came to her senses and said: “I have an impression that all my energy had been sucked out of her”. It took her a rather long time to recover.

Don Gaspar and several other men were traveling by minibus during a business trip when they noticed a light on a nearby clearing on the side of the road. They stopped the bus and Gaspar ran towards the light. There was a sudden flash and Gaspar stopped on his tracks seemingly reduced to ashes (!). Two figures exited the hovering light and using a device resembling a large aspirator (vacuum cleaner) absorbed what was left of Gaspar into what appeared to be a large aluminum bag. Somehow in this condition Gaspar was made to understand that he was going to be reconstituted onboard the object. Soon he found himself in a room surrounded by a very white light, brighter on the top and more opaque towards the bottom. The room resembled a doctor’s examining room with a single bed in the center. Gaspar met several man-like humanoids very similar to humans except for very subtle differences especially in the area of the hands. He was given a thorough examination that included his heart, head and genitalia. A blond extraterrestrial female was later brought into the room and clearly communicated to Gaspar via telepathy that the wished to mate with him as part of an “experiment”. He was also told that human’s life span was too short for their purposes. Soon he was returned to his friends, who were sleeping peacefully in the bus and later as he stood around talking with them, his parka and several other belongings suddenly burst into flames. Soon after the incident the witness vision improved dramatically and a strange mark appeared on his forehead.

Claudia accompanied her young son Cristovao, to the elevator so he could go down to play. In the elevator they met a strange man that smiled at Cristovao. Later worried about her son not returning home early she went to ask the doorman about her son and this one told her that he had not seen him get out of the elevator. They searched in vain for young Cristovao the rest of the night. Around the same time strange events were occurring in the apartment: objects were moving on their own volition and a sound similar to a “beep” was constantly heard. The next morning around 0800A an employee at a local power plant discovered Cristovao sleeping on the grounds of the plant. According to Clauida, Cristovao was emitting a very strong odor and told her an incredible story about boarding a “rocket” that took him to a yellow moon, from there he was taken to an even larger “moon.” There he encountered a man and a woman that appeared to lack mouths. The humanoids apparently inserted some items in Cristovao’s head and gave him rice and fish to eat and a reddish gaseous drink. In that place Cristovao saw other children. He was later placed on a small bed, covered with a blanket and allowed to sleep. He told his mother that they would one day return for him. She also discovered several marks on he son’s skin that had not been there previously. He kept pointing at the region of the sky where he said the “yellow moon” had appeared. The strange paranormal occurrences around the house continued for a while and then abruptly ceased.

Two men walking away from a beachfront café saw a bright bluish light flying low above the ocean at high speed in a descending angle. The light then stopped and descended slowly into a wooded area, next to some nearby camping grounds. Both men ran into the wooded area, which was now completely lighted by a bluish light. Upon entering a clearing they saw 8 meters away a huge human like figure, wearing a loose fitting silvery outfit, shiny in appearance. He also wore a large white helmet with a narrow black visor at eye level. The figure stood across from the witnesses and then it turned around and slowly walked towards a hovering metallic bluish saucer shaped craft with a dome on top, that was hovering very close to the ground. Both men became frightened and ran away from the area. During the encounter one of the witnesses felt a peculiar buzzing sound inside his head and suffered from lack of sleep afterwards. The next day ground traces were found at the clearing.

Two of the witnesses were sitting in their living room, when through the window they saw an approaching large yellowish white light angling towards the ground; one of the witnesses described the object as a yellow orange ball of light. One witness ran out the back door to see the object disappear behind the trees. Telephone interference was reported in the house at the same time. Later one of the children in an upstairs room reported seeing a white figure at the foot of the bed that tried to touch him. Moments later the father heard a noise coming from an empty room, going to investigate he then heard a noise at the window, when he pulled the curtains back he saw a white figure standing on top of the back porch roof. The figure was hooded and seemed to be wearing a mask. Later while investigating a noise at the front porch door the same witness saw the white suited figure standing just outside the glass door.

A 25-year man encountered two, irregular shaped, bright yellow objects in the night sky near Grafton. One of the objects approached and appeared to slowly move down a mountainside. It seemed to periodically issue a “shower of sparks”. This initial sighting lasted for about 20 minutes. The percipient drove on but had difficulty recollecting the next part of the journey. Some 1/2 hour later, he observed a very bright object, which appeared to be a “chicken coop”. The object was stationary on the ground for 10 minutes, and then it moved. It was a huge elongated object with “portholes”, hovering over the ground. Photographs were taken but only show a blurred yellow shape. The percipient got out of his car and set off into the paddock to try to get closer to the object. However, as he got nearer, the object appeared to retreat into an extensive fog. The percipient advanced and saw the fog retreating out of the ravine. Suddenly the stopped and returned along its original path towards him. It quickly enveloped him reducing visibility to less than 10 ft. The fog was accompanied by a sound similar to a vacuum cleaner. Then the fog quickly dissipated along with the sound, leaving the witness alone. He returned to his car in the morning and noticed two “shockwaves” one minute apart, as if the whole area was suddenly shaken, and then normality. The witness could not recollect up to an hour of the journey despite traveling on a twisting and turning road, which presumably required the driver’s constant attention.

The witness was chopping wood just north of his house when he spotted a white suited figure standing on a path about 90 feet away. The figure was described as four and a half foot tall wearing a square helmet with two round eyeholes; it had broad shoulders and arms that hung down its sides. It wore gray mittens each with 3 digits. The witness spoke English and French at the figure but got no significant reaction. After awhile the witness drove back home and on his way there he spotted a large egg shaped object on a slope in a partially wooded area. The object was dark gray in color and had bubble like windows.

Student Vladimir Sergeevich Kharitonov was vacationing in the city visiting his parents. In a clear moon evening he went outside the house to get some fresh air. Suddenly he noticed strange people in his yard. He approached them asking them angrily: “What are you doing in here?” When he did see their faces, he realized, that these were very unusual people. Their faces were covered by some kind of lattice forming an intricate ornament. The faces were not visible behind the smooth fabric, but their chins were clearly visible. The figures were slim & well built. Their height was about 1.80m. One of them was apparently a woman, since he could see long hair protruding from the hood (cowl) descending to the middle of the back. They were all in tight-fitting suits without buttons or visible seams. The material was shiny, like polished titanium. Behind a nearby heap of logs there was a car-sized object, which the aliens invited the witness to. This machine had a transparent cupola on top approximately 2 m in diameter and 1.5 m in height. The darkish lower part was larger and jutted back behind the cupola, and the front section was shorter. The whole thing was round, with no sharp edges. They went inside and sat on seats. The seats were soft, and comfortable. Inside it was very spacious. The “leader” who invited the witness, sat in front. The woman near him, he sat behind, and the third being close to him. The leader shut the door manually. There was no audible sound of moving or click. After that, the white-yellowish control panel started shining in front of him, consisting of transparent buttons approximately 15 x 30 mm each. They sat immobile for about 1 minute. He counted up to 9 rows of buttons with 25 buttons each. He did not noticed them closed an inner door but he felt isolated from “space”. The leader began pressing buttons on the panel; at this point the witness noticed that he had 5 unusual fingers (no details). The machine started slowly ascending, simultaneously rotating around its axis. He saw houses, cars and the road below him. At 40 meters they stopped and faced west. The crew sat calmly, without paying attention to the witness. Suddenly Kharitonov felt a very sharp acceleration of the object and felt a strong vertical ascend. At this moment the witness became frightened and thought he was being abducted and punched the “leader” on the head with his fist. His memory seemed to end at this point or he went unconscious because he next woke up lying on top of the heap of logs where he the craft had originally sat.

In the basement of the local water sports complex “Oktyabrenok”, Mikhail Babkin suddenly stumbled on the smooth concrete floor and fell to his left against a concrete wall; he apparently was gone for one hour. He returned conversely the same manner in which he had disappeared. He thought he had been gone only for 5 minutes. During the period of his disappearance he was by himself in a small room. All around him stood five strange humanoids with square heads (or helmets?). Looking out the window he saw a bright sunny day and the tops of trees rocking as if in a strong wind (it was during the middle of winter). This occurred in the presence of 3 witnesses who frantically searched for Babkin to no avail.

During a spate of sightings of low flying objects in the area, that involved military police and state troopers, it was reported that a military police officer was chasing a low flying bluish green oval shaped object that then hovered over his car, his radio transmission abruptly cutoff and a four-foot gray brown figure with a large head, long arms and slender body appeared in front of his car. The police officer panicked, firing five shots into the creature and one at the hovering object. The object then shot straight up and the humanoid ran into the woods. Later it was reported that military patrols apparently located the dead body of the humanoid, which gave off foul ammonia like odor. The humanoid was crated into a wooded box and loaded into a plane, which took off, destination unknown.

Six young boys were playing soccer on a field when they saw a luminous disc shaped object flying over the area. It flew at treetop level then stopped and descended to the ground without making a sound. Four of the boys ran terrified to their houses and two remained behind. Two cousins, Manoel Roberto & Paulinho Roberto had stayed behind. The children told their parents and a search for the two cousins ensued. Later after midnight a telephone call from the police alerted the family of Manoel Roberto that he had been picked up by an engineer Mr. Touro in the nearby city of Rondonopolis, cold and hungry and looking for shelter. Later he narrated that as the object landed his cousin Paulinho and himself also tried to run but were unable to move. They were then attracted towards the object. Inside the craft they found themselves in a large room where there was only a chair and a button. In the room there were also eight short humanoids, wearing reddish rubbery tight-fitting suits, there faces were human-like. Both boys remained on the chair unable to move, until one of the short men approached and passed his hand over the side of the chair. Later the object landed in Rondonopolis and Manoel was let go by the humanoids. Around the same time there was a reported power outage in the area. His cousin Paulinho has never been seen or heard from again. His whereabouts remain unknown.

A father and son awoke like they usually did to the traditional morning run with their dog. From the start, the dog’s behavior was uncommon; he hid under the bed and refused to come up. It was necessary to drag him by the collar and then it obediently began to run with the men along Korolev Street. Suddenly the dog stopped in its tracks and began to howl. Both men also stopped and noticed standing about 15 meters away a strange figure about 3 meters in height. The figure was dressed in overalls, which reflected the moonlight; it stood still slightly moving its hands. The head appeared to be directly connected to its shoulders without a visible neck. On its back it had an apparatus resembling a large oxygen tank. The figure then began to move has hands slow motion pointing towards the witnesses. Even though it was cold, both men felt a cold wind flow in their directions and a feeling of horror overwhelmed them. Suddenly the dog rushed towards the strange figure and both men heard an audible high-pitched tone, and immediately, after placing its arms straight on the side of its body the figure rose up straight into the air and disappeared from sight.

Four men were out pouching in a field next to the River Weaver, when they sighted a silvery balloon like object float along the river and land. It emitted a strong purplish glow that made it hard to look at. Two figures of normal height emerged, they wore silvery suits and had lamps on their heads like miners, and these also glowed purple. Cows on a nearby field seemed to become paralyzed and unable to move. Using a metal cage the figures penned in one of the cows and seemed to measure it. The men then became frightened and ran from the area, as they ran they felt a strange tingling sensation around the groin area.

Three young children were playing on the ice on a field of the local elementary school, it was dark, and floodlights illuminated the field. The boys then noticed a “plane” like object that passed slowly over the field. Moments later a second object arrived, it was described as square shaped with large yellow lights on each corner with a slight dome on top and a red light underneath. The object emitted a red beam of light towards the ground, which stopped short before touching it. They then noticed several figures moving stiffly along, around the park area. These figures were humanoid and were dressed in bright yellow outfits with boots and gloves. They were of average height and bald headed. One of the beings appeared different since he had a larger head which seemed “creased” down the middle and was wearing a brown cape over the yellow suit. As the witnesses watched the figures they noted and uncanny silence and an unpleasant sulfur like odor in the area. The figures walked away towards the nearby Public Works Garage. The boys then noticed another figure, this one a woman standing in the parking lot. She had medium long brown hair and wore a dark suit with blue fur around her shoulders and when she walked, she did as if in slow motion. She sat down on a low fence then raised her arm very slowly and pointed to the sky, apparently at another hovering square shaped object. The woman then also walked towards the Public Works building and at one point seemed to appear and disappear as a police vehicle drove by near her.

Avtandilom Vladimirovichem woke up with a terrible toothache; looking out the window he saw the flight of a huge luminous object that disappeared behind the mountains. Astonished, he ran out into his verandah and suddenly saw two enormous “black birds”, descending overhead, they appeared not have any wings. Soon the so-called birds gradually descended and landed on the verandah. The two “birds” proved to me two humanoids, of which one was over two meters in height, the other somewhat shorter. Both wore dark tight-fitting suits and helmets. The helmets had one ball-protrusion on each side. In the region of the eyes and nose was an aperture, through which were visible large frog-like eyes without eyelashes. There were other apertures on the breast area. Conversation was conducted telepathically and in “refined” Georgian language. They proposed to the witness to go with them, but he politely refused telling them that he had a bad heart. One of the humanoids then produced a tablet and insisted that the witness swallowed it, at first he refused but when the humanoid insisted he swallowed it. Moments later the witness heard a peeping sound and immediately both humanoids took off vertically upward emitting a smooth hissing sound. These flew away in the direction of the mountains, where apparently the luminous object he had seen previously had landed. His next memory was of waking up in bed not knowing how he got there.

Time: 0545A
30-year old Julio Fernandez and his dog Mus an English Pointer were on their way to do some hare hunting but for some unaccountable reason he took a road that led in the opposite direction, heading north-eastwards along the Barcelona road towards the province of Soria. At about 0430A Julio stopped to drink coffee and anis at a wayside bar known as the Hostal 113, beside the highway on the outskirts of Algora. A strange waiter served. He was tall and fair, wearing rubber gloves and what looked like a wig. (!) During the 20-minute stop, no other customers came into the bar—unusual even for that time of night. Also, a smell of pine pervaded the establishment, which Julio assumed to be a detergent. Subsequent checks showed, however, that the Hostal 113 had not been open at the time and no one matching Julio’s description of the waiter worked there. At 0545A Julio left the bar and drove on, half an hour later passing Medicaneli. Suddenly he “knew” that he had to be at a certain location 15 km further on, and put his foot down on the accelerator. At this point his conscious recollection stopped. Later under hypnotic regression Julio remembered driving his car down the road when for no accountable reason he suddenly braked. From this point on the car seemed to act of its own accord, reversing, and then coming to a halt after having entered backwards a narrow dirt trail, which started at the right side of the main road. Then the engine stopped, the lights went out and the radio cassette player ceased to work. It was as though the electrical current had been completely severed: the new battery no longer charged and the plugs no longer sparked properly. Mus growled, so as a precaution, Julio took his Winchester single barrel, semi automatic shotgun out of the boot and loaded it with its maximum of five carriages. It was then that he caught sight of two quasi human beings coming down the track, finally halting only one and a half meters from him. They wore seamless one-piece pastel green coveralls that reached to the feet and gave off a very faint luminosity with no zip fasteners nor openings and gathered at the waists. The overall was sufficiently tight fitting for their muscles to show. No fibers, no thread, and no designs were to be detected on it. The material was smooth and did not rustle when it moved. Pale yellow cowls or hoods, leaving only the face uncovered, covered their heads and shoulders. Their hoods, like their five fingered gloves were made of a texture resembling sating stitch, very fine and fitting the parts of the body closely. The men had extremely broad shoulders, with powerful dorsal muscles showing prominently, narrow waists, and they seemed athletic. Among features that set them apart from ordinary human beings were the exceptionally long arms and hands, large crania and very large eyes. Julio felt a sense of peace and calm envelop him. When they addressed him he at first thought they were using speech, but later, realizing that their lips did not move, he assumed they communicated mentally with him. They asked him to calm down and to follow them. Julio obeyed, taking along his dog and the gun. The aliens walked with a majestic, elegant and rhythmical gait. Julio was then led to a huge craft that had been concealed behind two hillocks in the bottom of a small valley, though hovering four meters above ground. It was an awesome sight. Shaped like an inverted soup plate, of a matt, silvery metallic color, it appeared to have a diameter of about 60 or 70 meters and a height of some 15 to 20 meters. Temporarily ignoring Julio, who had paused to take in the breathtaking sight, the occupants pressed ahead so that he had to run to catch up. Arriving underneath the central area of the craft, Julio noticed its completely smooth surface, as though molded in one piece, with no rivets or fittings. At this point he became aware of a powerful odor of pine, or possibly ozone, a smell also detectable on board. Julio’s gun and knife levitated upwards into the craft. A smooth metallic cylinder then emerged silently from the center of the disc, stopping just above the ground. It was about four meters in height and 2.5 meters in diameter. A door, sliding upwards, opened in the descended cylinder’s wall, revealing a small compartment lit by a strange light, coming from everywhere of an absolutely pure whiteness which Julio found thoroughly disturbing. By now frightened, he hesitated before stepping through the door into the shaft. So reluctant was the dog to follow its master that Julio had to drag him in. What was now an interior elevator rose silently, stopping at an entrance to a corridor, where the party alighted. Further along was another corridor, with two metallic doors, about 2.5 meters high. These doors were finely fashioned, and he could see no hinges, handles, or latches on them. The whole appearance of the place was the most clinically aseptic that could be imagined…there were no internal angles. The walls were continuous with the ceiling, being joined by a gentle curve. Continuing along the circular passage, he suddenly came to a small ladder…it did not seem to him logical that people with a technology capable of keeping a craft floating weightless four meters off the ground should require a ladder in order to pass from one level to another. The ladder looked like the steps of a swimming pool, with a very shiny finish and a cylindrical handrail. The semi-cylindrical steps were set at intervals of about 40 cm. One of the beings led the way, scaling the steps in two jumps with phenomenal agility. With some difficulty, carrying the dog under his right arm and with the gun over his shoulder, Julio followed. He noticed that the railing felt exceptionally cold. At the top of the ladder, which led up to a room through a circular hole, was another individual who, like the others, assured Julio that he had nothing to worry about. The “flight deck” as it turned out to be, was about 15 meters wide and five meters high. Interestingly, unlike Julio’s shoes and the claws of his dog, the steps of the crewmembers made no noise on the floor. In the center of the flight deck stood a kind of console. It had some resemblance to an electronic organ. It was about 2.5m wide and, standing on it, set in metal footings was a transparent glass screen. The control table itself was standing upon a circular platform of the same white material as the rest of the floor. Elsewhere on the flight deck stood three other, smaller consoles, about one and a half meters wide, set around the circumference of the room, in front of which were strange, high, conical seats, with the pointed part towards the bottom. Also set close to the surrounding wall was a large square panel, leaden grayish in color, and a rectangular table of a metallic, blackish blue sheen. Set around the dome at intervals of about one and a half meters were rectangular windows made out of what appeared to be smoked glass. Meanwhile, Mus had been around the flight deck, sniffing at everything, including at least one of the aliens, who reacted in a surprise manner. When Julio called out to his dog, the sound of its name evoked great surprise among the entities. On asking where his hosts originated, Julio received an unintelligible mental response, including the expression “three seven, squared.” After this the aliens indicated that they would like to examine his dog and take blood samples from him. Mus was carried to a rectangular table and blood from his paw was precisely, carefully extracted with a fairly normal looking syringe. The men then communicated to Julio that they wanted to examine him and placed him behind the screen on the rectangular table. After a few minutes he was given to understand that was all to be required of him. But in subsequent recollections—which proved harder to recover and which clearly he found very disturbing—Julio said that numerous samples had been extracted from him, including blood, semen, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, synovia, saliva, and gastric and intestinal juices. He believed that two women, similar facially to the men, were on board at the time. Politely ordered to sit on one of the seats at the central console, Julio did so. Next to Julio sat one of the crewmembers that, having raised the left armrest nimbly fingered several silvery buttons. The seat began to revolve along a track in the central console. Julio continued to sit beside the crewmember, his dog and gun at his side. Suddenly, a brief, piercing whistle was heard, producing a commotion on the flight deck. The tallest of the three crew members quickly headed toward one of the console units and all three studied the remote viewing screens in front of them. An image appeared on the screens of an older looking man. At this point the crew members began talking among themselves, their telepathy with Julio interrupted. The man on the screen, who seemed to be a superior, spoke first, and then the others conversed with him. The language sounded harsh to Julio, he described it as a mixture between German and Korean. They seemed to spit out the words as they were talking, and some of the sounds were like coughs. They never modulated their speech; the words seemed to come up out of their stomachs and did not seem to be produced by the vocal cords but to be thrown out by the diaphragm and from time to time they emitted a little cry as though they were choking. The image disappeared from the viewing screen. Julio found himself back in telepathic communication with his hosts. Hectic activity ensued; as crewmembers started desperately pushing buttons. The central platform began to rotate anticlockwise, halting when the control console came in line with what Julio assumed was a “computer.” Another whistling sound could be heard, from which point Julio seems to have passed out. After another whistle Julio was awake again. The crewmembers showed interest in Julio’s gun and, passing it around among themselves, asked him about its use. A heavy smoker, Julio lit a cigarette. The men asked if they might take one away for study and deposited it into the same cylinder. Soon Julio was escorted to the lift cylinder, the metal door rose and he was back outside, in bright sunlight. He staggered back to his car, where Mus immediately bolting from the cylinder, awaited him. The car engine now worked, and he drove away without bothering to look back at the disc. Among the interesting items of information imparted telepathically to Julio by the ufonauts, both during and after his alleged abduction, was that other, shorter beings were coming here who were less evolved ethically. These others, it was explained, “are engaged in probing and programming” the minds of those humans whom they have contacted or kidnapped. Julio Fernandez was killed in a car crash in 1992, coincidentally near the site where he claimed to have been abducted.

A 15-year old teenager abruptly woke up in her bed. She sees a strong light emanating from the window and is unable to move. However she is able to see out the window and sees hovering very close to the ground in the garden a strange luminous object shaped like a dome, which was completely motionless. The craft had pulsating multi-colored lights on its top. Suddenly she heard a voice in her head that said: “We will pick you up and you will join us” Terrified she answered in her mind” “No I will not come with you because I am materialistic and very attached to banal joys of life” “You are advanced spiritually and extremely distant from my concerns. Leave me, spirituality does not interest me”. After about an hour of constant mental struggle her paralysis subsided and she was finally able to move. The dome-shaped machine slowly then rose up. Terrified she ran for her parents who saw the slowly ascending object emitting multicolored flashes of light.

Three teachers, Mr. Moreno, Mr. Aguilar and Mr. Coronado were on their way back to town from a late dinner, when they noticed bright flashes of green, red and white light coming from a nearby hill. They stopped their vehicle and got out to obtain a better look. They walked towards the lights, which appeared to be about 300 meters away. The light seemed to dim the closer they got to it. When they were about 20 meters from the light, they noticed that it was now an opaque egg shaped object, about 15 meters in length. It appeared to have three antennae like protrusions on top. It now gave off a fluorescent white glow. Curious the three men approached the object even further and began to surround it. Suddenly, one of the men noticed something very close to him and signaled the other two. They all then saw in an apparently freshly dug ditch a short “robot like’ humanoid that appeared to be still digging. The being seemed to be wearing a tight fitting silvery outfit with a round helmet. The little man simply ignored the trio and kept digging. Frightened all three ran across a field, entered the vehicle and drove away at very high speed. The next day they returned to the site and found numerous ground traces, including the ditch.

Several soldiers were out on a routine patrol, including one named David. While resting David was putting on his backpack when a flash of light hit him. It came from an object just above the trees. It was metallic and elliptical in shaped and was hovering 100 meters away and was completely silent. Then it shot away at an incredible speed without a sound. Years later David had started having flashbacks of what really happened. He remembers putting on his backpack when a dwarf in a cloak and hood approached him. He said he would take him into the forest where he would be given something. He was led away from the rest of the group, who did not react at all to what was going on. He was taken to a clearing in the woods where a ship had landed. His next recollection was of standing in an empty room. He then found himself facing his double (cloning?) across the room. The double was wearing a blue cloak and hood. Next he recalled walking out in the forest with the dwarf by his side wearing his double’s cloak. He then came upon his companions and took them with him back into the forest. He remembers entering what seemed to be a hospital ward, besides being long the room was also crescent shaped, with beds filled with people, including his colleagues. At the foot of very bed was a container of unknown substance, with body parts of people; bloody and horrific.

The beam of light led to the craft, now hovering nearby. He became disoriented and numb, then lost consciousness. He woke up lying on a table in a hospital-like room that glowed with a red light. His shirt was open and a cold metallic box sat on his chest. Three beings were in the room and were looking at a row of flashing lights and a TV screen. One being spoke by using telepathy to the witness and led him through a curving hallway and a small airlock to a room filled with computers and other equipment, it was apparently the control room. The beings were humanoid, with large bulging and hairless heads, almost jawless, with small mouths, slit nostrils and no ears. The eyes were large and glowing and seldom blinked. The beings were 4 to 5-feet tall, seemingly frail with pale, soft skin. They wore red overalls. One of the beings appeared to be the leader and guide. The leader told the witness, among other things, that they were from Zeta Reticuli and that time was short for humanity. He was then led back to the initial room and made to lie down on the table again. He felt relaxed then passed out. Soon he found himself on the ground looking up as the object rose away from him.

The figures were about 1 meter in height, and wore gray colored tight fitting outfits. The beings were baldheaded, with small noses and mouths and huge black eyes. One carried something resembling a walking cane; the other had what appeared to be a vacuum cleaner like object. Both beings then began operating the vacuum like object seemingly extracting water from the ocean. After 10 minutes they re-entered the object. Moments later the object descended to 10 meters above the waters causing them to become even more turbulent, creating large waves and foam. Afraid Ribeiro ran home.

The 19-year old witness had fallen asleep that night when he was suddenly awakened by his mother’s dog. The dog was growling and shaking and staring at the bedroom door. The witness got out of bed and went to check and see what the dog was growling at. Going out into the hallway he heard a noise in the den area. Hoping to confront the intruder the witness put on a pair of jeans and sneaked into the den. Once inside he did not see anything, he checked his parents room and nothing either. He also checked the kitchen and headed back to the den, the dog still growling, and following him. Suddenly the hairs on the back of his neck stood up, turning around he saw a figure resembling a human. The witness decided to attack the figure. He came to the next day around noon. He had been stuffed under the kitchen counter, he was naked, his nose was bloody, and he felt sick and disoriented. The dog was hiding under the couch in the den refusing to come out. Feeling terrible and very hot the witness apparently fell asleep. He woke up suddenly at nighttime, naked again and the nose bleeding again. He looked over to the front door of the house and saw a 7 ft tall figure that looked very muscular, but incredibly, it looked like if it was on fire. It glowed as if it were a bright hot coal in a furnace. Its back was to the witness when he first saw it. It turned around as if was checking on the witness. The witness was apparently paralyzed and was unable to move. The strange being came over to him and put its hands on his chest. Strangely the witness did not feel any heat or fire. But he felt as it had been hit on the chest point blank by a shotgun blast. He also felt a great deal of some type of energy emanating from the creature. The witness felt his skin vibrating and so was the couch. The creature touched the dog and it fell over. The witness then heard a telepathic message in his head, which said, “That he had been with him since he was a kid, that he had been learning many things.” The witness attempted to get up but was told to go to sleep. The next day he woke up around 1500, feeling very tire and weak and could not eat. He fell asleep again and was sick for a few days after that. The creature had disappeared. He described it as 7 ft tall, heavyset, and radiated some type of energy. It had stripes on it. He could not remember what the face looked like.

They described the creature as about 1.2-1.5 meters in height, with large pointed ears, and covered with long gray hair. Seeing the car, the creature turned around and started to run away. The witness accelerated his vehicle in order to catch up, but incredibly he could not keep up with the creature, which moved very quickly. The speeds of the car reach a speed of 110km per hour and they still could not approach the creature. The creature suddenly turned into the forest and disappeared among the trees. Godziszewski began to chase the creature on foot, but he was suddenly overcome by a feeling of dread and fear. After 2 minutes he returned to the car and drove back to Stolec on his way there he saw another orange ball of light hovering over the village of Buk, other residents there also saw the hovering light.

Around 2315 several witnesses spotted a formation of luminous objects flying in a V-formation over a hill near Cerreto. Sometime later Cesarina Campioni was preparing to go to bed when she was attracted to a strange luminescence coming from her backyard. Looking out the window she noticed a strange “individual,” that walked in strange leaps and bounds over the ground. At the same time she heard a deep guttural metallic, incomprehensible voice. She described the individual as slightly over a meter in height. It wore a shiny metallic loose fitting outfit that covered his body entirely. The head was covered with a pointy helmet with a dark oval-shaped visor. It also wore a dark belt around its waist. The strange entity bounded away and disappeared into a nearby olive grove.

The witness was in her kitchen when she noticed a large luminous sphere; clear in color descend to the ground nearby. The witness went to fetch a camera with the intention of taking several photographs. At this point the sphere seemed to shrink in size and a short being wearing a bright orange overall type suit stepped out. The being walked around looking in all directions. Its face appeared brighter than the rest of the body and it had human like features. On its head he wore a cone shaped device or cap. It moved in short steps and bounds. This apparently frightened the witness who yelled for her husband. At this point the being glanced at the witness and ran behind a nearby tree stump. A thick fog then began forming in the area and at the same time the luminous sphere shrank in size and dissolved into nothing. The being apparently disappeared also.

UFO Researcher, Pat De La Franier was at his office going over some detailed UFO reports he wanted to present on a local UFO program when there was a sudden knock at the door. Now, where his office is located, he could hear everyone coming in the main door, being admitted, and then walking down the hall. But this knock came from nowhere, and when he opened the door, there was a very odd-looking man standing there. He was dressed entirely in black. He was about 5 ft 6 inches tall, extremely thin, with a slightly enlarged head. His hair was just nubs, as if he had been completely shaved and the hair was just growing back. His skin had a strange olive hue. His lips were very thin, and his cheeks were so sunken in that they looked like they were pinned on the inside. His eyes were dark and extremely long; they literally wrapped around his temples. La Franier stated that he had never seen eyes like that, “They just bored into me”. The stranger just stood there staring at the witness, who did not move. La Franier was fixated on his eyes and he felt intruded upon on a mental level. Finally, after a full minute, he spoke. “Would you like a photograph of your family?” It was a strange question, and his voice was very strange, too. It was low and hesitant as if this man had absolutely no conception of how to speak, how to put a sentence together. His English was impeccable, but the was struggling to get through the sentence. La Franier said no that he did not need any more pictures. And with that the stranger stepped back, turned and just disappeared. The man was completely gone, later La Franier discovered that many of his files and papers were missing.

Doctor of technical sciences, N F Kusov was staying at his dacha in order to finish a manuscript he had been working on. As he sat in his study he noticed an uncommon light shining from outside, apparently from behind some trees. He decided to go investigate the source and saw at about 100 ft from the light a cigar shaped object, 8 meters in length, sitting on the earth in a clearing at a 45-degree angle. Kusov approached to within 15 ft of the object, which emanated a beautiful orange light with different tints. As Kusov approached the object even further he suddenly felt his insides “bursting” open, he realized he was being enveloped in a low frequency (7 hertz) field. The vibration of this field is capable of destroying any living organism. Kusov took several steps back, and the discomfort passed. He approached again and the same thing happened. At this point he noticed, to his consternation how the rays of the sun seemed to be absorbed by the surface of the object, seemingly entering what it appeared to him as a “black hole”. Shaken by what he had seen, Kusov walked back to the dacha but suddenly broke into a run towards the object, which still sat on the ground, again he could not approach the craft due to the high degree of discomfort. Suddenly the object rose above the earth to about 2-3 meters, and then shot away vertically upward; interestingly Kusov felt no shockwave emanating from the object’s “liftoff”. Shocked he stood around for 5 minutes then frightened walked back to the dacha. There he looked at his wristwatch and was astonished to see that almost 5 hours had passed and he thought he had only been outside for 30 minutes.

The witness, 10-year old Eduardo Enrique Lacayo was out playing in the front yard of his uncle’s house when he saw a cat. He decided to chase the animal as it ran towards a large empty lot across from the house. As he ran towards the field he suddenly noticed a hovering silvery disc shaped object that emitted a strong yellow light. The object resembled two soup plates placed together and was about 15 meters in diameter, and it was hovering at about 200 meters above the ground, with a slight wobbling motion. Suddenly a gray cloud like mist emerged from the object and descended towards the ground. Stunned, Enrique watched as the mist like vapor assumed the shape of a human-like figure that remained suspended above the ground. The figure wore a kind of “cape” or long tunic that did not reach its feet, since the witness was able to observe gold-colored lace less shoes on the figure’s feet. The figure was about 1 meter 70 cm in height. The cat apparently also observed the spectacle since the witness noticed that the animal’s hair stood on end and scurry terrified from the scene. The witness did not notice any facial features on the figure, except what appeared to be thin lips. The figure extended its arms at the witness as if beckoning to him and appears to open its mouth. At this point the witness, who had so far felt no fear, ran quickly away from the area. Looking back he did not see the figure and the object was seen rising up at very high speed.

The witness was walking back home alone when he observed in the sky a very bright object that began descending at high speed. The object descended low over a nearby fenced field and the witness could now see that it was a shiny circular metallic craft within a ball of fire. The craft descended projecting two bright beams of white light to the ground and extended four metallic legs to the ground. The area around the witness seemed to darken, as he felt compelled to walk forward towards the fence. Soon he was grabbed by two short humanoids wearing shiny white close fitting suits and head enclosing helmets with closed visors and on top two small antenna like protrusions. The beings spoke to the witness then took him inside the object. Once inside he experienced difficulty in breathing and noticed that the air appeared warmer and denser. The room was illuminated by a bright light and then he noticed two more beings seated at a strange console like apparatus. The beings walked over to the witness and then he was surprised to see that these were female dressed in shiny white suits, with attractive capes of the same material. These also wore helmets with antennas. They were a little taller than the other humanoids and had hair to their shoulders. One had black hair and the other was blond. The black haired female approached the witness and told him that he was going to be taken to their planet. The witness declined the invitation and begged to be released. At this point the blond woman walked over and ordered the others to let him go. He was then allowed to walk out and down a stairway to the ground. He then stood on the ground and watched the object ascend at high speed and vanish.

Jan Wolski a 71-year old farmer, was passing through a forest in his horse drawn cart when he noticed two individuals ahead, walking in the same direction, but with “supple jumps” like divers on the sea bed. When one of them approached a muddy patch, his feet seemed to slide across the mud, as reported in a number of other cases. When Wolski caught up with the strangers, they walked alongside the horse and cart for a while them jumped onboard and sat down gently, one at each side, gesturing to Wolski to carry on. The added weight caused the mare to exert extra effort. Wolski drove on while the strangers exchanged some words in an incomprehensible tongue. Shortly, as the cart approached a clearing in the forest, a strange, almost “transparent white” object could be seen, hanging in the air about 70 meters away, emitting a faint humming sound. Wolski described the object as like a short bus, but with a roof like a barn, it was about 5 meters in length, three meters in width, and about 2.5 meters in height. It shone, as if nickel-plated. No windows were seen. At its four corners, and half-way up it had on the outside, barrels with black vertical rods running through them and carrying what looked like spirals rather reminiscent of corkscrews. These black rods were rotating very fast. The “corkscrews” emitted a range of colors, and the barrels seemed to have been the source of the humming. When closer to the object, Wolski said the sound was like that of bumblebees in flight. The craft’s surface was smooth, stainless, and seamless. At a height of some 50 cm from the ground was suspended a lift held by four thin cables attached above the entrance to the craft, which had descended as the trio approached. Stepping on to the platform one of the entities invited Wolski aboard, gesturing to him that he should grasp the cables. After rising rapidly the lift stopped in front of an opening and Wolski was motioned inside. Inside, Wolski stepped into a chamber with walls that were almost black and saw two more beings identical with the first two. The chamber was rectangular. There was no internal lighting other than the daylight from the open door. The walls, floor, and ceiling were a grayish black the same color as the overalls of the occupants. The floor was shining, as though polished. The walls were smooth and hard to the touch, and made of a material resembling glass. Against the four walls there were seats, each fastened by two black cables. No apparatus was seen inside the contraption, with the exception of two black tubes that ran from one gable wall to the other and two holes, about 30 cm apart, into each of which one of the entities inserted alternately a smallish black rod. From floor to ceiling, the height was about 1.8 meters. On the floor of this cabin were about ten crows or rooks, which seemed to be paralyzed, though they could move their heads and eyes. The four identical beings, of indeterminate sex, were about 1.4 to 1.5 meters tall and had delicate, slim figures. They were dressed in tight-fitting, flexible one-piece suits of a grayish black rubber like material, covering the entire body except the faces and hands. No pockets, belt, or fasteners were seen. Their legs seemed thicker than those of normal men, and form the way these curved when the beings sat in the cart with their legs hanging down, they looked like prehensile limbs. A hump was visible on the shoulders, as though something was contained under the suits. The slim, greenish colored hands had five fingers, between which were fine membranes, except for the gap between thumb and forefinger. Their heads were relatively large, with faces of an olive green or greenish brown hue, having high cheekbones that gave them an Asiatic appearance. The eyes, almond shaped, very long, were dark, and appeared to lack any whites. In the place of the nose, there was only a slight protuberance with two small vertical openings. The mouth was straight and thin. Their teeth were white. No hair was visible on the face. When the beings smiled, the mouth twisted to one side with the effect of a grimace. Their speech was rapid and delicate. They had a polite, gentle demeanor and Wolski felt no fear in their presence. The beings indicated to Wolski that he should take off his clothes, and one of them helped him undo his shirt buttons. Facing him less than two meters away, one of the beings held in each hand a gray disc shaped object that seemed to be attached to the hand by something like a suction pad. The discs were vibrating and emitting a dull humming sound. Wolski was positioned with one side facing towards the entity holding the discs, then with his back towards him, and finally with the other side. Wolski’s arms were raised alternately by the entities, whose fingers were very cold. During the process he smelled an odor similar to that of burning sulfur; a smell that lingered in his clothing for days afterwards. When ready he was shown the way out, bowed, and said goodbye. The beings bowed likewise, smiling. The same lift took him down almost to ground level, so that he was obliged to jump down a short way. Reaching his horse and car, Wolski turned around to look at the contraption. Two or three of the beings were watching him from the entrance. He did not see them leave.

Shortly afterwards, Adas came in to say that he had seen an aircraft like “a little house” or a big box, fly low over the barn. It then vanished vertically with a sound like thunder. Adas said that the object was flying with one of its smallest walls to the front, in which was a square window with rounded corners, through which he saw a pilot. On the edges of the wall, he said, were moving black rods, like the feelers of a snail.

The witness, a well-educated PhD in physics and mathematics was living in a house close to the bank of the River Syrdar’ya suddenly awakened in the middle of the night by a sudden impulse. When he looked out the window, he noticed a cone-shaped object, which had landed on the river’s edge, on the outskirts of town. Following a further sub-conscious impulse, he dressed and went outside to approach the object. The landed cone-shaped object appeared to made out of polished metal, approximately 10-12 m in diameter. It had an entranceway on the upper part of the cone. The craft had landed on 3 landing prods, made out of some alloy, dark in tint. In the center of the alien craft were white cylinders (like tanks) about 3 m in height. An alien crew consisting of three man-like creatures that invited the witness inside the object met him. He described the aliens as almost human in appearance, a little bit taller, wearing tight-fitting flight outfits. The faces were human in appearance with only slight differences; the hands reportedly had 5 fingers. Inside the craft the witness saw what appeared to be control panels and several armchairs, he saw no other “furniture”. He was shown what he was told was a power plant in the center of the object. After conducting medical tests on the witness he was supposedly taken to their home planet, a visit that was quick with no movement sensed by the witness. He was told that their craft produced a vacuum around it during flights in the atmosphere and transformed electric, magnetic and gravitational fields. They also told the witness that they lived in a planet called “Sikkam” in the Cygni star system. Upon arriving at the planet, went outside the craft and was surprised to find a very clear environment, with landscape and environs resembling those of Western Europe. The weather condition was cloudy and fresh no sun was visible. After staying for a while he was returned home.

Tomas Ornelas Saldana had gone with his father to a nearby creek in order to fill some jugs with water. As he approached the creek on foot he notice three multi colored football-sized spheres hovering over a nearby tree, these suddenly blinked out. As he proceeded to fill the jugs with water he felt someone watching him, he looked back at the tree and saw, standing on one of its branches a bizarre looking little creature, staring intently at him. Stunned he stumbled backwards and fell to the ground. Meanwhile Tomas’s father was in the parked car nearby and had not seen anything strange but did see his son stumble. Without taking his eyes off the figure, Tomas began filling the jugs with water.

On the left side of its chest it had a symbol resembling an inverted triangle that appeared to be part of the skin. It did not appeared to be wearing any clothing except for a belt, which consisted of several small inverted triangle-shaped sections. It had a normal sized hairless head with two huge pointy shorthaired covered ears, huge shiny cat-like eyes, a small wide nose, and a mouth with thin lips. As Tomas watched he also noticed two shiny objects hovering over the tree. A later a search of the area for the being proved futile.

The witness was traveling on US-1 near the seven-mile bridge and had just begun to cross a small bridge when he noticed ahead some dancing firefly like lights. They appeared to be very far away. There were 3 or 4 of them. As he reached the end of the short bridge he parked his car, and saw that the lights were still there. He approached three anglers on the east side of the bridge and asked them about the lights. He was told that they had been watching them all night. As they continued to talk about the lights they suddenly noticed their voices were being echoed down to them from above and just to the east. Every sound they made was being amplified and reflected back to them from above. As the three anglers began laughing the witness noticed a black area obscuring the stars about 100 feet up and maybe 50 feet east of the bridge. He yelled at the approaching object to come down. Within seconds the black object illuminated itself, appearing as a thick oval shaped craft. It was extremely beautiful and covered with exquisite esoteric devices. Its whole surface was a multicolored array of sparkling light. It seemed to hover silently and motionless. The other three men suddenly became very quiet. The witness suddenly began to hear a high-speed noise, which seemed to come from below at his feet. Looking down he saw a spiral pattern of lights apparently encircling him; he was then surrounded in a cylindrical grid pattern all the way up to his head level. His surroundings then suddenly disappeared. He then saw several “persons” that greeted him. He remembered a woman, and he asked them who they were, she replied that they were “Watchers.” He felt completely at ease and comfortable, he then began to look around at what he assumes to be the interior of the object. His next conscious memory was waking up in his barracks in Boca Chica Island.

4 local residents walking on a road in the center of the village were approaching a telephone pole when suddenly a strange entity ran out of the darkness from behind the pole and into the middle of the street. The entity stood first on its legs and then on its hands. It resembled a sort of hairy dwarf, covered in dense fur; its face and hands were white. Seconds later the entity jumped into a nearby flowerbed of roses. The witnesses ran after it and attempted to locate it in the flowerbed but could not find it. The witnesses kept walking further and entered an acacia valley. 20 minutes later they stopped to smoke a cigarette forgetting momentarily about the strange entity. While smoking they noticed a globe-shaped shining object that descended from the sky and began hovering at about 1.80cm above the ground. The globe was no less than 2 meters in diameter. Suddenly there was a flash of light from the globe and it zoomed up. Seized by an unearthly fear the witnesses remained sitting on the ground in the same location the rest of the night, even though their houses were nearby.

The 13-year old witness was laying in bed sick with the mumps when he looked across the room at a pair of large glass stained windows on the far wall and noticed sitting on the window sill two little people. They appeared to have been laughing at him, bending over with their hands on their knees, and pointing. They were pale greenish yellow in color. They had very wide mouths and large almond shaped eyes. They had long limbs and narrow torsos. They were wearing clothes, but it appeared that the clothing would fade into the color of their skin. Their clothes were a darker greenish color. They had hats on their heads that came to a point, but the hats were kind of limp, not real firm. It appeared that their hats were indeed part of their heads. He did not recall seeing any ears or eyebrows. Everything about the creatures was subtle, with no real sharp defined edges or colors. They looked exactly the same. The witness watched them for a long time then fell asleep.

A local teenager, Andrey from the nearby town of Alushta had climbed to the top of Mount Demerdzhi and had camped there to spend the night. During the night a bright light pointed directly at his face suddenly awakened him. He opened his eyes and the outlines of several human-shaped figures. They had domed-shaped heads connected directly to their shoulders. Their faces were not visible or were absent (maybe robotic creatures?). The humanoids were apparently staring at Andrey, what was clearly visible was their large collars that came down to their breasts. Apparently the witness was paralyzed and everything was brightly lit around him. Andrey felt no fear or any other emotions during the encounter (apparently he was under some kind of psychological influence exerted by the aliens); he soon fell asleep and could not remember anything else. A local legend states that Demerdzhi is hollow and had been excavated thousands of years before by a race of dwarfs in an effort to extract supposed treasures buried within. A local clairvoyant, Lenura Azizova claims that there still exists an ancient underground alien base under the mountain.

Then an unseen figure held her wrist. The witness was paralyzed and could not move but could see that the figure had a fuzzy aura surrounding it. A bluish light was bathing the room. Apparently every time the being touched her it created a weird X-ray like effect. She could see into her arm, the bones, and blood vessels. It was as if the entity was studying her. Suddenly the creature disappeared and she was again able to move.

The 16-year old witness was returning from his girlfriend’s house under a heavy rain when suddenly he heard a very loud voice “talking nonsensically” all around him; this was so loud that witness thought it must wake everyone in the village and he compared it to that of a radio newsreader. The volume intensity rose and fell as though the voice was being blown on the wind; words however could not be distinguished and it faded away after about five seconds. The witness then continued walking, and about 50 meters further on he noticed, through a wooded gate to his right, a cylindrical column of white light. This vertical beam appeared to be in the grounds of a convent and was an estimated 200 meters away, seemingly 3 to 3 1/2 meters high and 2 meters in diameter; it appeared to be solid and sharply defined. At the precise point where the witness considered the beam to be, there is a tall cross about 2 meters high, but from the witness’ position, only its top could be seen due to foliage and a small bank obscuring the rest. The bottom of the beam, however, was visible, just as if it were reaching the bottom of the cross. The witness then had the impression that something was in the beam, became scared and ran home, having watched the beam for about 5 seconds.

Ivar Manuel Melano was in his back terrace tending his plants and listening to the radio when suddenly a strange creature appeared in front of him, standing only a few feet away. Before he saw the creature he felt a very strong heat wave from an unknown source. He described the creature as about 1.40 meters in height, “dirty” in appearance. With a generally oval shaped body and head, it had two thin arm-like protrusions, two on each side, and two short thin legs. It did not have any noticeable eyes, and his face appeared to be covered with “acne”, the witness could see a barely noticeable mouth. The creature also had huge pointy ears and long strands of hair dangling down from each side of its head. The skin appeared to be brown in color or very tanned. He wore a tight-fitting brown diving suit with three large oval shaped buttons, which every once in a while emitted bright red flashes of light in different directions. Surprised the witness asked the strange creature what was he doing in his terrace, the creature answered, apparently in a strange language, which sounded like “Guru guru guru” to the witness, but he was somehow able to comprehend, “I am here to help you”. He asked the witness for two plants, preferably two pine saplings since according to the creature that species was predominant on earth. The witness agreed and gave the creature two of the saplings then he continued working on his plants. The creature then told the witness that he liked the planet earth mainly because of the “double life” that it possessed. The witness was not quite sure what the alien meant by double life, and the alien explained that we on earth had life under the water and in the air. The alien went on to say that humans possessed a perverse intelligence, not like the intelligence they possessed. That the humans thought out things too much, that always planned everything ahead, that was totally unnecessary where he was from. The alien then went on to say that he was from the planet “Mars”. That they did not have vegetation over there; he also mentioned that they did not sleep at night in Mars. (?). The witness was also told that the earth on Mars was very hot and lacked water. At one point the witness seemed to experienced a memory lapse and does not remember how the alien left, all of the sudden he was no longer there. Some dark stains were found on the terrace in the area where the alien stood. One of the pine saplings that the alien handled atrophied and did not grow normally; it grew in a sort of mutated manner. The witness still possesses the sapling, which he showed investigators.

There also appeared to be a base to the dome, cylindrical in shape, attached to the flat side of the dome. The object moved from east to west over the fairway, and the witness lost sight of it at the far end of the fairway. A few minutes later his friends joined him but they had not seen the object.

Then the beam of his flashlight illuminated something about 20 feet away. He could see that it was a human shaped figure about 5-feet tall that stood motionless on the other side of a small hedge. The figure’s skin appeared grayish in color and the eyes were a burnt yellow color. It seemed to be wearing a skintight gray body suit. Stunned the witness stared at the being for about 5 seconds, it then seemed to dive on the ground and disappear.

Two young children were playing in an empty field near the Can Fita farm when they heard a loud sound coming from some nearby woods. Somewhat apprehensive and thinking it could be some kind of animal, they climbed down the tree they had been playing in and were confronted by a strange being robot-like in appearance. The humanoid had a brilliant metallic body, which reflected the bright sunlight and had two antenna-like protuberances on top of its head and large slit like eyes and mouth. To their horror the humanoid suddenly began moving towards them using incredibly long jumps. Both boys ran towards a nearby barbwire fence and were astonished to see another bizarre figure standing just in front some nearby trees. They describe the second figure as a man over 2 meters in height, bearded and with long black hair and wearing a long white cape that was flowing in the wind. The white tunic reached the ground and had its upper section two black horizontal stripes and something resembling a star that appeared to be knitted on the chest area. Their fear became greater as they realized that both figures had apparently emerged from a huge object that was partially hidden behind some nearby electrical pylons. As they ran to the nearby town they were chased by a bright blue light most of the way. Later strange tracks were found at the site of the encounter.

Suddenly her small dog began acting in a strange manner running around in circles inside of the house, running from the kitchen and to the door that led out into the yard, apparently trying to get out. Curious the witness walked towards the door and heard a loud “mechanical” sound of unknown origin. Suddenly as she opened the door she was confronted by two short humanoids that appeared to hover just above the ground right by the door. Both humanoids stood side by side. Behind the humanoids she could see an oval shaped craft that had apparently landed on three metallic leg-like protrusions. One of the beings approached the now paralyzed witness and made gestures as if to calm her down, while the other humanoid floated above the ground looking around as if searching for something. The only movement that the witness was able to make was to raise her arms up to her chest. She could not utter a word. The humanoid closest to her caressed her head while the other floated towards the object, which had landed in the middle of the yard. The humanoid that had been standing next to her floated to the door of the object and removed from his belt an aluminum container. The container illuminated the yard in a bizarre yellow “coherent” light that appeared solid. The beam of light would enlarge then decrease in size intermittently. The beam of light was directed towards the kitchen area, the yard and into the landed UFO. The humanoid aiming the beam of light then preceded to take a small cylinder-shaped object from his belt said item then emitted a vaporous cloud of smoke that covered the both humanoids. Seconds later both humanoids boarded the object, before entering they beckoned to the witness to come with them. Obtaining no response they waved at her and entered the object. Soon a plume of smoke emerged from the bottom of the object and the object began to ascend. Two bright yellow lights became visible and the craft disappeared into the distance. Before it left, the witness thought she saw another figure through an open porthole in the object. Moments after the object had gone, the witness was again able to move. She ran terrified to notify her family that noticed that she was cold and very pale. She described the humanoids as about 1.25 meters in height, wearing round metallic helmets on their heads, silver in color. In the front part of the helmet there was a blue dim lit area. Inside the helmets the witness noticed faces lacking irises or eyelids, and round dark eyes. Their skin appeared yellowish. They had small flat noses and lacked ears or mouths. Where the mouth should have been there was a round metallic plate. Their one-piece suits were light gray in color and both had belts with numerous gadgets hanging from them. Their bodies were very thin, and their heads were disproportional large as compared to the rest of their bodies. One of the humanoids was somewhat heavier and appeared to be a female; this one had a metallic disc on the chest area, about 15 cm in diameter with a small white light in the middle. The other humanoid did not have such a disc. The object was metallic and oval in shape with several oval shaped portholes and what appeared to be antennas on the top and a multicolored sphere of light on the top that emitted numerous flashes of light. During the encounter, the witness perceived a total silence in the area, like a vacuum. Also during the encounter she perceived a strong smell resembling ammonia and felt extremely cold.

The witness and her family were preparing to go to bed when a strong light shone through the bedroom window. The witness tells her husband to go and check and he goes over to the children’s rooms to check on them. Suddenly a bright light enters the bedroom and two short figures appear at the bedroom door. These are described as four-foot tall, with a large head, huge dark slanted eyes, two small holes for a nose and a slit like mouth. They had long thin arms and fingers and wore tight fitting silvery outfits and gloves. One of the beings approached the witness and touched her, apparently causing her to calm down and relax. She then was taken by her hand and led outside and floated into a hovering object. Inside she found herself in a large stainless steel room where two short humanoids operated several devices. She was then led out of the room through a curved metallic hallway brightly lit by an unknown source. She was made to lie down on a cot and saw a terminal like instrument descend form the ceiling and hover over her. On the screen the witness was able to see numerous internal organs, apparently hers. The short humanoids gesticulated among themselves and pointed at the screen several times. Moments later one of the beings placed a small box with multicolored lights on the witness head. At this point she began receiving messages in her head. Soon a tall human like being entered the room; he wore a silvery uniform, with a large wide belt and thin gloves. He was well built, with short black hair, dark almond shaped eyes and with a somewhat pale complexion. The witness was then given a complete medical exam in which various samples were taken from her. The tall human like being communicated extensively with the witness. She was apparently cured of a kidney disease she had and was given dire warning about the future of humanity as a whole.

These were described as almost globular in nature. The creatures stood in front of the vehicle emitting an extremely foul and nauseating odor. The driver attempted to put the car in reverse as his wife screamed in terror next to him but the vehicle would not respond. As the creatures approached the vehicle the temperature fell to almost below zero level. The creatures apparently wanted the witnesses to exit the car but these stayed inside. They finally re-entered the craft, which shot away at high speed. Both witnesses suffered from a classic case of radiation poisoning and also suffered from nightmares and found strange red marks on their bodies.

Mrs Clark was stunned to discover that while she had been busily working in her garden, a “helicopter” had descended from the skies to hover just a few feet over her head. Startled, she glanced up and saw two men in the cockpit; one of them was looking directly at her. Coming to her senses, Mrs Clark made a beeline for her house. When she looked again the helicopter had vanished. Later she realized that the incident had been even stranger than she had first thought. The helicopter had made no noise, in contrast to its usual deafening activity. On top of that it had carried no markings or landing gear. Furthermore, the cockpit glass seemed to be a simple globe rather than the standard design.

The witness, Sharkov, was staying at a boarding house near a local lake when he woke up early in the morning with an uncontrollable desire to expiate. While making his way to the outhouse located near the shore he heard a loud rumble and saw at a distance of about 100-150 meters and at about 3-4 meters above the water an object resembling a helmet, but much more rounded and thicker. Thinking that it was some kind of new weapon that was being tested, he made a decision to approach it (!). Feeling a certain degree of fear he swam towards the object, again perceiving the rumbling sound. As the Sharkov swam towards it he noticed that the water under the object and around it was fluorescent and shiny. When he was practically under the object he looked up to see a glowing green circle on the perimeter of the object. He could not see anybody onboard the craft but he was confident that he was being observed. After swimming around for about 30 minutes he decided to swim back to shore but as he did a metallic cylinder suddenly descended from the center of the craft. After it reached the water surface the cylinder opened and it approached the witness, who attempted to swim away but was suddenly drawn into the cylinder. The cylinder immediately shut and the water was released back into the lake. The witness felt the cylinder rising up. After several minutes the cylinder opened and the witness found himself inside a “flight” room that was illuminated with an unknown source of light, there were two armchairs in the center. Soon he hears a soft rumble and a voice speaking in perfect Russian, tells him not to be afraid, that no harm will come to him. He is told that they knew everything about him and that they were from another constellation in a far galaxy in space. The room around him darkened and he saw apparent holographic pictures and diagrams of the alien’s star system. He is made to understand that there are 4 aliens “assigned” to this object, but he never sees them. He is also told that they control gravity and are forbidden to engage in full contact with earthlings since this will undoubtedly bring confusion and destruction to humanity. During the conversation he apparently looses consciousness temporarily. He pleads with the unseen aliens not to be taken away, but he is reassured since according to them, they already had a sufficient number of humans with them. Soon he was gently deposited back into the water and he floated back to shore. It was already 0400A when he noticed a dazzling bright light illuminated the surroundings like daylight and when he looked, the object had disappeared.

Brothers Tom and Ted were deer hunting in the Wisconsin woodlands, with approximately 2 inches of snow on the ground. They split up, and Tom began walking through the woods looking for deer spoor. A cold wind was blowing, and a snow flurry began. Tom looked up suddenly and saw a large 10-foot high tree “stump” about 40 yards away that appeared awkward compared to the rest of the landscape. When Tom saw hair on the “stump” blow sideways in the breeze, he quickly realized he was looking at a living creature. As he focused on it, the head and shoulders of something huge became more visible. Just then huge snowflakes began to fall during a sudden squall. Tom could see brown shaggy hair hanging over the face, covering all the creature’s facial features. He quickly pulled up his gun and aimed at it but could not fire. Strangely, a voice told him, “Don’t shoot.” This startled him. He became paralyzed, almost frozen in time, gun to shoulder with no urge to pull the trigger. The statuesque creature was staring straight at him, never moving a muscle. Tom kept a bead on it with his rifle for a full 15 minutes. Both remained motionless. Then out of the corner of his eye, Tom saw his brother Ted, who unbeknownst to Tom had been following the creature’s tracks. Within minutes, Ted saw the creature with Tom pointing his rifle at it. He noticed the broad shoulders of the giant, its back toward him, but he did not attempt to shoot. Ted then circled around the creature and joined Tom. Incredibly, the creature never moved. The brothers quickly walked away, leaving the creature still standing in place. After walking about 20 yards, they became terror stricken by the sight of a dead deer with a stick grotesquely jammed through its neck. The head had been twisted back in an unnatural position.

The children were upstairs preparing for bed. Mrs. Polanski and the 3 children gathered by the bedroom window to view the spectacle. A door on one of the saucers opened and an eerie green light glowed from within. Nobody came out. Moments later, the door closed and the two objects departed. The next day they drove to the boundary of the Indian reservation and parked on an old dirt road about a half-mile away from the farm. They split up and began exploring the area. One group discovered a dilapidated building in the forest with a dark gloomy cellar and ten-foot high ceilings. They were soon startled by what sounded like deep asthmatic breathing. The breathing was eerie and unnatural; sounding like it was coming from a very large “person.” One of the men became frightened and both left the building. Before leaving one of the men reportedly heard a telepathic message on his head saying: “If you come back Tuesday night between eleven and one, a ship will be dropping off some of my people.” Accordingly, that night the family was driving in a forested area not far from the farmhouse and when they rounded a bend in the road they saw what they describe as a UFO sitting in the middle of the field. The craft was perfectly round and was emitting a dime, white luminescence. Mrs. Polanski’s car was a short distance in front of the second vehicle, when suddenly she quickly pulled over to the side of the road, to see the object lift off and fly out of sight. When the second car pulled in behind, its beam spotlighted the field, revealing an eight to ten-foot tall ape-like creature running into the woods. There were a total of 11 witnesses. The night after the encounter, four of the same witnesses went for a drive near the Indian reservation and were driving down a dead-end road by a stream and stopped the car. When they got out of the vehicle, they heard heavy footsteps at the edge of the woods. The four young men fanned out to look for the source of the footsteps. One of them reported to source that a voice in his head said to him, “I, am over here.” When the young man looked across the steam, he saw a “big hairy thing” squatting behind a large bush. He ran back to tell his friends when they returned the creature was gone.

Phil Mullett was driving on Four Ashes Road and on turning the car lights on saw a green figure appear from the right hand side of the road. It drifted out to the center of the road and turned towards him. It waved its arms, apparently not to frighten the witness but warning him back. It drifted into the hedge on the other side of the road but as the witness got closer it came out again to the center, turned and lifted its arms. It seemed to shout out something. Phil braked and although he must have hit the figure when he got out to look there was nothing there. He described the figure as bright green but appeared to have no legs or hands. The body was solid and it stood about seven-foot tall. Instead of a face there was just a misty gray round shape.

C. Rodrigues was sleeping in a hammock in the house of a friend, when she suddenly woke up to see a bright light outside and noticed the temperature around her become warmer. A beam of green light then entered through the window, touching her head and face. The color then changed to red. She then noticed the figure of a man wearing a diving suit standing outside. He had human features, but had very small eyes. In his hand he held an instrument resembling a pistol, which he pointed it at the witness three times, hitting her with a beam of light in her chest area. It felt very hot to the witness. The beams left burn like scars arranged in a triangle in her upper chest area. Every time the beams of light hit her she felt very thirsty and became paralyzed. She screamed waking her cousin. The man and the light then disappeared.

The young witness, Juan O Perez, had gone to gather a herd of horses and as he rode on his horse through the morning fog he felt something fly overhead, several objects then appeared and began maneuvering overhead emitting powerful beams of color changing light. His horse panicked and the witness barely managed to ride back home. The boy’s father reprimanded him and ordered him to go back to get the horses. Back on the field the witness found a large round object on the ground, it had a dome on top with several round windows. A door opened and a seven-foot tall being wearing gloves and a cylindrical helmet appeared. The being seemed to be attached to the object by some type of breathing apparatus. He invited the witness inside. They boy then tied his horse to a ladder and climbed in. Inside he was able to see a panel with buttons, tables and a small robot like being that was apparently busy at cutting into pieces, large bones of some animals resembling cows or horses, afraid the boy jumped out of the object to the ground. The tall being followed him outside. The witness then requested one of the giant’s gloves as proof of the experience, he then saw that the being had green claw like hands with blue metallic nails. The being then pricked the witness right arm apparently extracting blood in the process. As the witness rode back home carrying the glove, two flying objects caught up with him emitting a small slab and sphere that descended and brushed by the horse pulling off the glove like a magnet. Another curious fact was that while inside the UFO the young witness attempted to touch the being and the object several times but was prevented to by what appeared to be an invisible barrier. (Six days prior to the incident the witness father had found a mutilated cow in a pasture.)

The doors of the car were opening and closing at high speed, making a loud racket. At this point Mrs. Carvalho blacked out. Upon waking up she found herself in a semi-circular room, of a yellow subdued color. In front of her stood a very tall man, over 2 meters in height, which called himself “Dagon”. He spoke without moving his lips and while he spoke Mrs. Carvalho experienced a bizarre sensation as if she was being “reduced in size”, her clothes seemed to increase in size and her feet appear to float inside her boots. She could not see where her vehicle was, and then everything became hazy. She was found by the Federal police sleeping in her vehicle on the side of the road near Florianopolis.

As he reached the top of the embankment he caught sight of a metallic disc shaped object sitting on a nearby dry mud flat. The object rested on three thick legs that terminated on flat plates on the ground. The object was totally smooth and the metal appeared to be brass like in appearance. A figure then appeared walking on the rim of the disc. I was described as short and oriental in appearance wearing a silvery tight fitting overall which sparkled in the sunlight. He also wore dark boots. His face was dark bronze in complexion and he had large almond shaped eyes. The humanoid appeared surprised upon seeing the witness then walked briskly around the rim, briefly bending down and touching something on the dome then disappeared behind the dome. Moments later the witness heard a loud rumbling sound and saw the object rise slowly straight up, emitting a bluish flame from the bottom, it then turned on edge and shot away at great speed. Ground marks were found at the scene.

The witness, “Giorgio” was on his way from a funeral when he noticed a bright glow coming from a nearby forest. Curios and fearing a fire, he parked his vehicle and went off on foot to check on the source. He took a camera with him. About 5 minutes into the woods he heard a strange sound resembling a sort of metallic “clatter.” He kept on walking while a feeling of “being watched,” crept over him. Suddenly, looking to his left he noticed a strange luminous human like figure leaning against the trunk of a tree. At this point the witness apparently attempted to take 2 photos but was unsuccessful. He observed the figure for about 30 seconds. Frightened, he described the figure as about 1 meter 60 cm in height, squat, and heavy set, with large donkey like ears. A dark spiral tube like device emerged from its mouth; he had large deep-set almond shaped eyes, which emitted a strange glow, and a small nose. It wore a loose fitting tunic and white gloves. During the encounter the witness noticed camphor like odor in the area. The humanoid became aware that the witness was approaching and suddenly turned around and quickly disappeared into the forest using great agility and speed. The witness briefly attempted to chase him but the humanoid moved to fast.

A group of geologists working in an isolated field came upon a metallic disc-shaped object sitting on the ground. The group of geologists began to approach, however when they reached an area within 12 meters of the object they began to experience very unpleasant feelings: fear, oppression. At 6 meters further the group experienced paralysis of the extremities. They stopped and began to throw stones at the object. They soundlessly passed through the “skin” of the object (apparently) or perhaps soundlessly were destroyed within the boundary of the object. Then after, connecting several thin sticks, they attempted to touch the object. The stick or rod entered into the object freely as into water, when they took it out it proved to be shorter than when it first went in. One of the geologists, in a desperate act jumped towards the side of the craft and immediately lost consciousness.

The 11-year old witness remembered getting into bed and turning off the light and thinking how odd it was that he could see everything in the room clearly, even though it was pitch black outside. It was as if there was pale light shining from the walls, He started drifting off to sleep, but was awoken by a banging noise. It was his bedroom door, which was opening and slamming shut repeatedly. This happened about 6 times and he became frightened, he tried to shout for his mother but no sound came out and he now could clearly see the shape of something standing there in front of the door. It was something small—about three feet tall but he could not make out any detail. He could hear a heavy breathing coming from it and could vividly feel its presence. The witness panicked and attempted to get up from bed but could not move a muscle. Even though it seemed like an eternity, the figure stood there for about 7 seconds before appearing to dissolve into the door. When it had gone, the room became very dark to the point that he could not see anything at all. He was now able to move so he ran to his mother’s room and was surprised to find her awake. She told the witness that she had woken suddenly for no apparent reason and felt something standing next to her, watching her.

As he was cutting some of the dried up shrubs he suddenly heard a very loud noise. He described the sound as resembling the sound of bees buzzing but at a very loud scale. Turning around he was confronted by a strange entity at least 3 meters in height. The figure had a perfect human shape, but in huge proportions. It wore a tight fitting black outfit, resembling that of a diver’s suit. It stood slightly hunched forward; its hands appeared to be covered with gloves. Its face was described as “ugly” with unpleasant features. The eyes were about 8 to 10 cm apart, and round and seemed to emit a radiant light orange-yellow in color. Terrified the witness attempted to leave, but felt unable to move. He then noticed that the being’s ears were large and pointed. The bizarre figure seemed to float just above the ground. The terrified witness then was finally able to move and ran panic stricken towards the front of the house where he was assisted by the other residents and given some medication to calm his nerves. He suffered from eye problems for years to come after the incident.

As they left one of the men turned around and saw the same thin black figure walk across the opening between the trees to where they had been sitting. Later while sitting in Rachel’s bedroom one of the men looked at Will, who was reading and saw an amorphous black blob drop out of his hair onto the bed. He was the only one who saw this. A few seconds later a black shape started whizzing around the room. The main movement was from bottom left to top right and getting larger during the movement and inducing a great fright among those present. About four people altogether saw this. Later the girls slept in a room together. Apparently Rachel and Dorothy saw the black blob in the curtains during the night.

Jenny had been horse riding and was returning home with her dog down the hillsides when something caused the animal to stop frolicking and, in a way it never did before or since, look up at the sky. Jenny followed his gaze and saw an object that she admits would have otherwise walked right underneath. It was a lens shaped craft with a neon blue body and windows or portholes on the edge. Surrounding it was a silver green mist or fog out of which it just seemed to emerge. Jenny says that she was transfixed by this majestic silence and was given an absolutely ecstatic feeling. As she staring at the object she sensed an alien voice tickling her mind during the altered state of consciousness she knew that she must have been in. The voice said plainly, “do not be afraid.” Instantly upon “sensing” this voice, she went from utter terror to “calm, peace and loving security.” Her next recollection was that time and space had become meaningless. Then, suddenly she knew that the object was about to leave and she felt terrible sadness. She pleaded for them to stay but she knew they had to go. She was told that she was not harmed and that she would be protected. Then the object split in two and trailing a shower of sparks, shot “like stones from a catapult” across the sky.

Elsie Oakensen was driving on the A5 motorway two miles from her home when she became aware of a strange object hovering about 100 feet above the road surface. The object was described as being dumbbell shaped gray and plastic looking with a bright red light on the left sphere and a green light on the right sphere. The witness drove directly under the floating object and as she drove away she noticed that the object was still floating over the roadway. Her car suddenly seemed to slow down and as she reached a line of trees by the entrance of a farm the engine completely stalled. The witness suddenly found herself sitting in complete darkness and silence. As the witness sat in her vehicle a brilliant circle of pure white light illuminated the road by the passenger side of the car. It went out and seconds later further circles of light began appearing in different places around the vehicle, seemingly dancing around her car as if searching for something. Suddenly the witness found herself down the road with the engine running. She eventually reached her home and realized that the routine drive had taken longer than usual. Later under hypnosis the witness recalled sitting in her vehicle very frightened with a white light shining on her face. The radiating circles of light seemed to shrink in size. Suddenly out of the haze two shapes appeared. One is long and thin, the other more rectangular, they both then disappear then appear together again. Both shine through the haze, appearing to be silvery gray in color smooth and rounded. She also recalled feeling hot and her arms shaking. No other details were clearly recalled.

The witness was in her home and was about to close some window blinds when she noticed a row of lights approaching over a nearby parking lot. The lights approached to within 10 meters and became multicolored. A slight haze comes from the bottom of the lights and descends to the ground; it tilts suddenly and moves back up leaving a yellow trace of light behind. The witness feels attracted to the light and steps outside. A tall man like figure with large round eyes, a normal nose, and lipless mouth then confronts her. The being speaks to her telling her to remain quiet. At this point a neighbor comes by and greets the witness but apparently does not see the hovering light or the figure. As the neighbor leaves, the humanoid climbs back into the hovering light and bids farewell to the witness who runs inside in order to obtain additional witnesses, when she comes out both the humanoid and the light are gone.

Four men were out hunting in a wooded hilly area near the River Guadiamar, when they all saw a red light on the ground within a nearby eucalyptus grove. They all carried bright lanterns and continued looking for game, crossing the river as they did, forgetting about the red light for a few moments. They then noticed that the light was now at a nearby clearing in the woods. Two of the witnesses approached the area, the others remained behind. The two men saw, partially hidden by some trees a large bowl shaped craft with a red light on top and with numerous multicolored lights on the front, it rested on two shiny silvery legs. Next to the object stood a tall, heavy set human like figure, it seem to be wearing a large round black helmet and it had a glass like visor on the face area. His clothing was silvery and he was wearing large boots. The being walked slowly back and forth in front of the object, at one point it approached the witnesses briefly. It emitted a low hum like sound. The men became frightened and left the area. Large footprints were found at the site.

The witness had gone to a nearby copse to gather some firewood and had sat down on a branch to rest. He was suddenly horrified to see two strange beings looking at him. The beings were hovering very close to the ground. They were described as very short and thin, one shorter than the other. They had yellowish skin, large elongated heads, smooth and bald, long pointed noses and large mouths with two long pointed fangs. They were clad in dark tight fitting coveralls that started below the knee and up to their necks. They also had huge hands and feet with extremely long fingers and nails. The shorter of the beings approached the witness and began making sudden “sliding” moves around him, never touching the ground. The witness screamed for help and ask who they were but they only answered with mumbling sounds. The taller creature now approached and attempted to take the witness chopping ax from him. After a brief struggle the creatures fled into the woods. The witness chased after them but lost sight of them. He then came upon a clearing where a solid metallic disc shaped craft with a dome on top rested on four legs like protrusions. He saw a pair of long hands close a small trap door on the dome, then the disc took off silently and at high speed emitting a burst of red flame from its bottom. During the same time other independent witnesses had watched a similar object maneuvering over the area.

A creature resembling a large black dog repeatedly mutilated small animals like dogs, cats, chickens, and rabbits under cover of darkness and with chilling finesse: it made its way into chicken coops and pens somehow opening the gates without destroying them. Local residents believed that the otherworldly creature had some sort of “intelligence” that allowed it to elude their best efforts at catching it. Soon the murderous phantom dog was joined by an even more fearsome manifestation: a cadaverous being resembling a human female. (Island folklore mentions fearsome female like creatures called “Ciguapas.) Those who managed to see it closely noted that its face “appeared to be covered with cotton”. This entity was also blamed for a number of mutilations.

Adele Holzer was in her car traveling to work when she saw a hemispherical white disc. More puzzled than afraid she pulled off the side of the road, and saw a “row of shining green ports along its periphery.” Then, she allegedly thought to herself, “If I could only see its bottom”, when it suddenly turned. She reported that there were three spheres on its bottom surface, the middle one being larger. It possessed a bright orange spot at its center. As the UFO hovered over some nearby trees, six beams of green light shot from it; she felt “slightly paralyzed” by one of them. She lost track of time as the object hovered over her. When the light beams went out, the object rose up silently into the sky. Her watch had stopped at 0801A and the car’s ignition key in her hand the entire time, was found to be bent. Later she told investigators that she felt “somebody was trying to get into telepathic contact with her.” She claimed to have been given a message saying that they had friendly intentions…and wanted to stop us from destroying the earth.

Feeling an overwhelming compulsion, John, got dressed, got in the car and drove out, leaving his young daughter alone in the house. John drove as if in a daze along Route 9E, a very desolate stretch of road. All of the sudden his car went dead completely, the motor went out and he coasted to a stop. His battery wasn’t dead because his lights remained on. He tried unsuccessfully to re-start the car, both in neutral and park. All of the sudden he heard a noise, a very loud crackling noise. He turned his head to the right and slightly ahead of his car and off to his right, about 50 feet from the road, a huge elongated, rectangular dark object was hovering 30 feet above the ground. Almost as soon as John saw it a rectangular portion on the object’s front end lit up and shone a soft green light through the car’s front windshield. Simultaneously John felt a strange tingling sensation, like “pins & needles.” He also felt himself sink into a trance-like daze. He remained fully aware but could not move a muscle. Strangely enough, his initial fear upon sighting the huge object had disappeared. He felt calm and unafraid. Abruptly the soft green light changed color and began pulsating first slowly, then faster and faster. The color looked like a reddish pink, blinking very rapidly. He then heard a voice that said: “Do not be afraid. We will not harm you. We are from the 17th star.” The lights then slowed down again and John heard the voice say, “We will return,” and felt a strong impression that this statement was true. The lighted rectangular opening suddenly blinked off, and John heard the strange clicking sound again. The object then backed away and seemed to rise in an angle. On his way home, he felt cold, very cold. The next morning he noticed skin peeling off around the nose and in back of the ears and on the forehead. He also suffered from severe headaches after the incident.

She heard a soft, low pitched humming sound, looked outside and saw a large, silvery white, cigar shaped object facing three smaller cigar shaped objects, all at a high altitude, Bluish-silver “sparks” emanated from one cigar while the largest cigar appeared to “shudder”. The objects were viewed for over an hour. The following afternoon, the percipient allegedly became ill, vomited and had recurring headaches. Several times, the percipient has received mental communications whilst engaged in routine activities. In one incident, a male “voice” started a message by saying” “We are peaceful…seek and you will find…” The percipient also claims to have seen “letters” in the sky and visions of Christ in a neighborhood church. She claims to have a psychic background as a medium. Several times she has “spoken in tongues.”

Fortunato Zanfretta was out patrolling a housing complex when he suddenly yelled over his radio that he had lost control of his vehicle, it was apparently speeding down a mountain road on its own accord. The car finally stopped and the witness got out to investigate a nearby strange light. He was later found incoherent next to his car, his pistol had been fired 6 times, and giant footprints were found at the site. Under hypnosis he again recalled being taken onboard an object by giant humanoids and examined with strange devices. He was asked several questions and was told that they would soon be back.

A man was walking back home alone when as he was crossing a street he heard a noise and noticed a light approaching from behind. He stepped aside thinking that it was a car but then realized that it was a huge yellowish light that was attached to the bottom of a large object. He was suddenly struck by a beam of light and apparently lost consciousness. Later he found himself inside the object in a corridor with some type of balcony. He then noticed three short humanoids that spoke among themselves in a strange language. The beings wore overalls, helmets, and face covers light green in color. The eyes resembled two simple holes lacking eyelids or eyebrows. The witness then apparently blacked out again and arrived home at 0330A with no further recollection of what happened.

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t
Believe impossible things.”

I daresay you haven’t had much practice.” Said the Queen.
“When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day.
Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible
Things before breakfast.”
