1966 – Violet Bricker was driving two miles north of La Harpe,
Illinois on Rte. 94 at 8:15 a.m. when she observed a light flash
that she first believed was an approaching plane. As it neared she saw it
was more dirigible-shaped and closed rapidly on a collision course with
her. It stopped and hovered over the telephone lines opposite her car. It
was ovoid shaped and made no sound, and was about as long as a Piper Club.
It had a single bright yellow-white light on the end facing her. There
were no doors, ports, or landing gear visible, but a lateral line like a
seam encircled the UFO. It began revolving in a clockwise motion on its
axis, bringing the other end in view and exposing a two-foot platform on
which stood a “man” wearing a bulky, white, one-piece suit. He was about
five and one half feet tall, stocky build, and he stood with his left hand
against the object and his right hand on his hip, staring directly down on
the witness. His face had a ruddy complexion and his eyes were dark, but
he looked entirely normal otherwise. The object drifted about on its axis
and the man was lost from view. Ms. Bricker was so taken aback by the
experience she could not recall if she actually stopped her car or not.
She recalled seeing a man and a woman on foot not 20 feet away to whom she
signaled frantically to catch their attention, but to no avail. (Sources:

and inspect his vehicle when the engine stalled. Only then did he observe
an intense light to his right, coming closer. He saw it land on the road
and locked himself inside the cab of his truck. The craft settled on a
tripod landing gear; it measured 25 meters in diameter and was 10 meters
high. Something similar to an elevator came down from it, and a man
dressed in blue coveralls “with something like a glass fish bowl on his
head,” of medium height, seemed to check something and then left. (Source:

1975 – Carlos A. Diaz was
walking home from the bus after a late night at 3:30 a.m. in Puerto
Ingeniero, a town outside Bahia Blanca, Buenos Aires, Argentina when he
saw a blindingly bright that emitted a bent beam of light and found
himself paralyzed. He then heard a humming noise and was levitated off the
ground. He fainted, and when he came to he was inside a spherical room
about 8 feet in diameter with luminous walls. Three beings, about 5′ 9″
tall, entered the sphere. Their heads were half the size of human heads,
shaped like smooth green knobs, with small noses and small ears, and
were completely devoid of hair. They were dressed in pale cream
colored “rubber” suits that covered their entire bodies up to
their necks. Although their arms terminated in fingerless stumps, they
were nevertheless able to pull out large clumps of Diaz’s, but this
caused him no pain. They even pulled out some hair from his chest. Finally
Diaz fainted again, and when he awoke he found himself lying beside a road
outside Buenos Aires. The time was 7:30 a.m. but his watch had
stopped at 3:50 a.m. He was nauseous the entire day, and was taken
to hospital. (Sources: Pedro Romaniuk, FSR, November 1975, p. 39; David F.

1975 – At 2:30
p.m. 15-year-old David Mahon was in his backyard in Brownstown, Illinois photographing his dog when he
heard a loud droning noise and saw a black disc-shaped object passing
overhead. He took five photographs, then felt himself being
levitated upward and he lost consciousness. He recovered conciousness in a
small cubicle only five feet in diameter. There was a row of blinking
orange lights that encircled the room at waist height. He remembered
being in this compartment for less than a minute. He
then fainted again and recovered consciousness near his home.
His father told him that he had been gone for nearly an hour. The
photographs of the UFO were overexposed and out of focus. There were two
other witnesses who briefly witnessed the flying disc in Brownstown.

tank north of Wakefield, Rhode Island. There was a red glow coming from the windows in the craft. It faded from view after four minutes. (Source: Donald R. Todd, APRO Bulletin, January-February 1975, p. 5).
1975 – At 6:55 p.m. in Laulne pres de Lessay, Manche department, France
a domed disc-shaped craft 15 meters long with portholes, took
off from a landing on a farm. It had three legs
as landing gear. The principal witness was 12-year-old Yvon
Vildier, but two more adult witnesses named Marie LeClere and Richard
(first name only) observed it as a light in the sky. It left
behind traces on the ground and a petroleum odor. The ground marks
included three large landing pod imprints, irregularly spaced in a
triangle 1 m x 1.6 m x 2.5 m, and three small center clustered
imprints. The entire event from first observing a luminous phenomenon
in the area to the disappearance of the craft lasted 20 minutes.

1976 – At 5:50 p.m. Jean Claude Silvente, age 10, was walking
through a vacant lot overgrown with brush and surrounded by buildings in
Domene, Isere, France when he heard a noise, and saw that a
bell-shaped UFO had landed next to some bushes. It was about 30 feet away
from him, about 15 feet high, a luminous white color, and resting on five
thin legs. A door in the craft opened and a very tall man, at least two
meters tall, emerged. He wore tight, white luminous coveralls and had long
blond hair. On the back of each hand was a green circle. He walked stiffly
with his arms extended in front of him, in the manner of a sleepwalker.
When the boy sneezed, this “giant” turned toward him, and Jean Claude ran
home. A short while later he was sent out by his mother to get some milk,
and while returning home he saw the same being again. It was following him
on the sidewalk 80 feet behind, still with its arms held out stiffly in
front of him. Jean Claude ran home. Note: An almost identical humanoid was
seen in Chamouilley, France in October of that same year. It had
similar features, was tall and had blond hair, and it also walked in the
manner of a sleepwalker with one slight difference, it appeared to be
wearing tight-fitting goggles. (Sources: Charles Bowen, Saga UFO

1977 – Two separate truck drivers in Nysater, Varmland, Sweden
had a close encounter at 1:15 a.m. with a disc-shaped object on Highway
18. The saucer was just above the roadway, with five legs extended
as landing gear. Both of the observers were paralyzed and frozen
in place for five minutes, 150 meters away from the craft. The UFO
emitted a solid coherent light beam. (Sources: Bertil Soderquist, MUFON UFO Journal, January 1978, p. 18; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II. A Thirty Year Report, p. 270).

1979 – Two members of the
Quezet family in Mindalore, Gauteng province, South Africa experienced a 20 minute
episode of missing time in the pre-dawn hours when they had a close
encounter with an ovoid object that made a buzzing sound. Meagan
Quezet and her 12-year old son Andre were out looking for their dog
shortly after midnight after they heard it barking. Soon they noticed
a peculiar pink glow beyond a tarmac road. Thinking that it was a police
car, they approached the area. As they reached the glow they noticed that
it came from a peculiar egg-shaped craft resting on the ground on several
thin leg-like protrusions. The intense pink glow emanated from the top of
the craft. Suddenly5 or 6 men jumped to the ground from an opening in the
craft. One walked to the far end of the object, two remained standing
in front of it, and two others approached the witnesses. The men
appeared to speak among themselves in a loud “sing-song” unintelligible
language; two kneeled down and appeared to touch the asphalt. All the men
wore tight-fitting white suits; all but two had hoods that covered most of
their faces. The one who appeared to be the leader approached Mrs. Quezet
and spoke to her in a high-pitched unintelligible voice. He made a slight
bow towards her as if in a form of salute. He had a black beard, frizzy
black hair, and slanted eyes and dark olive skinned complexion. Soon the
men walked back to the craft and entered the object, the craft then
emitted a whistling sound, the thin leg-like protrusions telescoped back
into the craft, which then rose up and disappeared into the clouds. Under
hypnosis the witness recalled being taken inside the object where she saw
chairs, panels and a table. She was asked to come with them but she
refused. (Source: Xenolog,
March 1979, p. 19).
Jean Hingley had waved goodbye to her husband as he went off to work in
the bitter cold morning in Rowley Regis, West Midlands, England at
around 7:00 a.m. Then she saw a light in the garden. Thinking her
husband had left the carport light on, she went out to investigate, but
it was still to dark, so she returned to the kitchen. She put down some
food for the family Alsatian dog, Hobo, and called him from the garden,
but he flopped down as if he had been drugged and gazed at the ceiling,
glassy eyed. Then, with a “zee-zee” noise, three weird looking
creatures flew past her into the lounge. There were only three and a
half feet tall, and had waxy white faces and coal-black eyes with no
eyebrows and very thin mouths. They wore silvery uniforms, with a
transparent fish-bowl type helmet over their heads. They also had
transparent wings, and floated. Jean was left clinging to the sink,
paralyzed, but she next suddenly also floated towards the lounge. Jean
noticed that the aliens were inspecting the ornaments on their
Christmas tree with interest. She said they also probed her mind with
telepathy, “it was like a light or an X-ray penetrating.” They told her
telepathically that she would not be harmed, and when she asked them
where they were from, one of them reported “we come from the sky.” She
then explained to them why the house was all decorated, to celebrate
Jesus’s birthday. “We know all about Jesus,” they claimed. They said
they would return. They also claimed that “we come down here to talk to
people but they don’t seem to be interested.” Finally, when she showed
them how to light a cigarette, they fled in terror, taking a mince pie
with them. Outside in her garden was an egg-shaped object with windows.
They floated into it and it took off, emitting a bluish flash and
pulsating twice before disappearing with a flash. The dog returned to
normal, and Jean called the police. Her electric wall clock had
stopped, and all her cassette tapes were magnetized and unplayable. In
the snow outside where the object had sat, there was an oval outline,
which the local UFO group was able to photograph before the snow
melted. (Sources: Albert S. Rosales, 1979 Humanoid Sighting Reports

1979 – In the town of Bannalec, Finistere, France a 15
meter in diameter circular object hovered near the ground at around 10
p.m. for three minutes. It had a blue halo, and shot away very fast.

1979 – At 6:20 p.m. three red triangle-shaped UFOs were sighted over Interstate 290 in Auburn, Massachusetts;
AM and CB radios were affected. There was steering loss, loss of
power, and the main witness’s car was reportedly levitated as
well. Ms. Emery felt heat, paralysis, and she had a skin rash as the
result of her close encounter. The UFOs flew off to the northwest. Also
during this period of repeated sightings of low level lights and a
diamond-shaped object over the area, a witness reported seeing a 7-8
foot tall hairy figure in a field at 11:00 p.m. near Sturbridge, Massachusetts. He shone a spotlight at it and the creature ran
towards him. The witness fired three shots at it and then ran away,
shooting one more time over his shoulder. The shots appeared to have no
effect on the creature, but it stopped and did not pursue him further.

1980 – At around five a.m. the witness, a 33-year-old painter
living in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England suddenly awoke in his
bedroom to see a huge two-meter tall glowing green figure standing at the
foot of his bed. It looked to him more like a holographic image than a
solid figure. The being apparently communicated with the witness using
telepathy. Among the many things mentioned was that his race regularly
transported human beings to other planets in order to colonize them. When
a planet was in danger of overpopulation they somehow started a war in
order to reduce the number of inhabitants on that planet. He also warned
that the Earth was in danger of “breaking in half.” Apparently the
witness’s wife slept through the entire encounter. (Source: Albert S.

1997 – B. C., a 57-year-old farmer living in Ille et Vilaine,
Chantepie, France was awakened at two a.m. by a noise like an
explosion and a strident whistling sound. His wife continued to sleep. He
got out of bed and went to the kitchen to get something to eat. Suddenly
he saw a bright flash of light outside. He looked out the French windows
of his farmhouse and saw lights in the middle of a field resembling
headlights. He grabbed his shotgun and went out to investigate. Running
toward the light, he attempted to shout a warning, but oddly no sound came
out of his mouth. He next was hit by some invisible force field and was
unable to move. He then saw two small beings emerge from the luminous
form. The figures looked to be transparent and passed close to him,
seemingly unaware of his presence. The figures then walked toward the
nearby barn. At the same time he felt a prickling sensation and began to
sweat. The small beings walked by him a second time and disappeared inside
the luminous form. The light shot up into the sky vertically at an
incredible speed. B. C. was now able to move and he returned to his
kitchen, still sweating. When he got back to his bedroom his wife was
still in bed sleeping. He appeared to have experienced some missing time.
