 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 August 16

1897 - On this night at 12:40 a.m. a giant airship followed a train as it rounded a bend in the tracks around Heron Bay, Ontario, Canada and then flew off inland to the north >N inland. It had body lights and light beams. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 208, citing Brad Steiger).

1947 - At 9:00 p.m. a globe of purplish light was seen in Timmins, Ontario, causing a car to stall. (Sources: Jan Aldrich, Project 1947: A Preliminary Report on the 1947 UFO Sighting Wave, p. 116; Michael Persinger, Space-Time Transients and Unusual Events, p. 59).

1953 - Claude Pasquier saw two discs flying very low and quite slowly along a straight course in Tours, France at 8:30 p.m. They made a "hard" sound as they flew. Jacques Vallee, Anatomy of a Phenomenon, p. 65; Melbourne Age, July 10, 1963; Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 203).

1955 - Mr. Ernest Suddard, age 35, and his 13-year-old son were driving in a truck in Bradford, England at 4:00 in the morning when they saw what seemed to be a short human being about 1.20 meters (4 feet) tall, dressed in skin-tight black clothes. It held its arms close to its sides, its feet close together, and walked by a series of jumps. On its chest was a silver disc perforated with holes. It turned off suddenly into a passageway and was lost from view. The witnesses were too amazed to follow. (Sources: Jack Ibson, Flying Saucer Review, September 1955, p. 4; Arthur Constance, The Inexplicable Sky, p. 222; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, pp. 250-251; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A0378).

1958 - A dozen people were out on Leman Lake in Switzerland in perfect weather at five o'clock in the afternoon when they saw a bright light coming down toward the lake. They stopped their boat as it came to hover about 15 meters above them. It was saucer-shaped, 10 meters in diameter, and had a cabin with several windows showing on top. The outer disc below the cabin was spinning. As it came down toward the water, a noticeable current was created on the surface. No noise or occupants were noticed. After several leaps in mid-air, the craft flew off at "unbelievable" speed. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 469, citing Aime Michel).

1960 - Eight geophysicists working in the Kazakstan Mountains near the Barakhudzir River, 18 kilometers north of Koktal, Kazakstan, U.S.S.R. saw a bright orange lens-shaped UFO at 11:00 p.m. The strange luminous body suddenly appeared over the mountainns on the east slope of the valley, moved north to south while keeping a constant speed and altitude. It went behind the mountain top, then re-appeared, flying off to the southeast. (Sources: Felix Zigel, unpublished manuscript, p. 61; Jacques Vallee, UFO Chronicles of the Soviet Union: A Cosmic Samizdat, p. 185; Ion Hobana & Julien Weverbergh, UFOs from Behind the Iron Curtain, p. 284).

1960 - At 10:30 p.m. in Corning, California pilots and many other witnesses observed two long red ovoids, followed by a V-shaped boomerang. (Sources: Richard Hall, The UFO Evidence, p. 170; Paris Flammonde, UFO Exist!, p. 366).

1961 - In Admiralty Bay, Antarctica four members of the crew of an icebreaker sighted an oval fireball that flew from the northeast to the southwest for 12 seconds at 6:15 p.m. The object split in two. (Sources: Phenomenes Spatiaux, June 1968, p.17; UNICAT, case # 142, citing James E. McDonald).

1965 - At midnight in Brough, Durham County, England three women reported that their sheep and cattle were agitated and noisy when a dark shape with two orange lights appeared in the sky. The close encounter lasted 75 minutes. (Source: Gordon Creighton, FSR, November-December 1970, p. 28).

1965 - A woman was driving home at 11:00 p.m. and was within a mile of her house in Sedalia, Missouri when she saw a light in a field with “smoke” around it. In a nearby ditch she noticed two large “birds,” one of which flew at her car. She arrived home at 12:25 a.m. unable to account for the lapse of time. Under hypnotic regression she recalled that the “birds” in the ditch where in fact two entities wearing spacesuits. One carried a sack on its back, into which the other was putting clumps of grass and soil samples. They were “bouncing up & down, their arms flopping at their sides” in a “stiff” manner suggestive of robots. One started to come out of the ditch, slipped back, then emerged and stood in front of her; its helmet beginning to glow brilliantly. She could now see that its head was wrapped up in tape like a mummy, with only the eyes visible. It stood slightly over five feet tall. At this point a football-shaped UFO landed on the road ahead of her car. Two beings with slightly pointed heads & “wrap around” eyes emerged from the object and opened her car door. They conducted her inside the craft, assuring her telepathically that she would not be hurt. The air inside the UFO was “heavy” and difficult to breathe. Once she was inside they flew the ship over a nearby field, which caused its interior lights to change from white to red. One of the entities, who did most of the communicating, appeared to be a scientist or doctor, and he wore an insignia of three rings on his chest. Another had a red lighting flash symbol on his uniform, and she took him to be the pilot. A third entity appeared to be a woman. All three stood 5’10” tall. The “doctor” put an object of some kind over her head, and she felt as if something were going into her brain. A round black object was then taken out of the wall, and with it “pictures” were taken of her; the object glowed blue when the pictures were taken. On a screen on the wall appeared a pattern: seven vertical lines with markings between them, which she thought must be some type of tabular representation of her brain and body. Two more figures, about a foot shorter than the other three, made their appearance. These beings resembled “gnomes,” and they aroused fear in the woman. They appeared old because their foreheads were wrinkled. She was told by the "doctor" that they and the “mummies” came from different planets. Finally she was led back to her car; the UFO ascended, and then vanished while still at low altitude.  (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # 1965-78, citing Ron Owen & Jerome Clark).

1967 - Pedro Jose Ramirez in Caracas, Venezuela reported seeing a four-foot-tall being with an oversized head and large eyes, abnormal teeth and mouth, and five fingers on his hands. The being was agile, lightweight, hoarse-voiced, and wore a shiny suit. He spoke Spanish. The entity told Ramirez that the Earth "was cracking and they wished to save it." (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # 1967-77 (A0851), citing Scheffer Vladimir Scheffer, letter to NICAP dated August 22, 1967).

1967 - On the same day, in Antimano, Federal District, Venezuela 10-year-old Jose Gregorio Bouaci was in his bedroom in the early afternoon when he encountered a "little man" who tried to talk to him. The being was short, white skinned, and had an over-sized head, with no arms. The boy left his room screaming, saying that he had seen a Martian. He was so frightened he threw up. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # 1967-78 (A0852), citing Richard Heiden).

1968 - At six o'clock in the morning a chicken farmer named Mateu saw a light hovering three feet above the ground in Sierra De Almos Tivissa, Terragona, Spain and he walked towards it. It was a very luminous hemispherical object. On the far side of it he saw about 100 yards away and hurrying toward it, two creatures resembling octopus, about 3 feet high, with "4 or 5 legs," very light in color with a "thoroughly disgusting" appearance. The UFO left a large area of burnt grass, and "watches stopped 3 times at the site." (Sources: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Catalogue of 200 Type-I UFO Events in Spain and Portugal, case 64; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-57, citing Julio Roca Muntanola, FSR Special Bulletin # 4).

1968 - For a three hour period beginning at around 11:00 p.m., numerous witnesses in Hamilton, Ohio watched as a domed disc-shaped object moved over a dam, stopped, flipped over, then emitted five light beams downward, focusing into a single beam that swept the area and reflected over Greenbriar Lake. The object reversed course, and finally flew away toward the south. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, October 1968, p. 3, Gordon Lore, UFOs: A New Look, p. 43; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II:  A Thirty-Year Report, p. 380; Francis L. Ridge, Regional Encounters, p. 35).

1970 - At 12:30 a.m. the Hidalgo family of four, driving in a car between Aznalcazar and Pila, Sevilla province, Spain encountered a white foggy object hovering two meters over a field by the side of the road. The object flew away as they approached, and their car headlights became dim as it did so. The object repeated this retreat a few more times as the car kept approaching, then it rose into the sky and flew away. (Sources: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Catalogue of 200 Type-I UFO Events in Spain and Portugal, case 133; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 49).

1970 - Thirty minutes later, a 22-year-old woman in Puente De Herrera, Valladolid province, Spain heard a loud whistling sound accompanied by TV interference at one o'clock in the morning. Opening the door to her house she saw a silvery Saturn-shaped object standing on legs. On top was a transparent cupola bearing a bluish-white rotating light; and around its perimeter were other multi-colored lights. A few feet away stood a tall man dressed in a dark blue or black tight-fitting uniform. It had a close fitting hood of the same color with shining white wrist bands, anklets, and a buckle. The man was examining a nearby field of alfalfa. He then turned and took long strides toward the UFO, which was approximately 30 meters from the witness. She closed her door, frightened about being discovered, but heard the intense whistling sound again as the object took off. Footprints were found in the area, and for several nights the site where the UFO had landed glowed at night. (Sources: J. Macias, FSR Case Histories, February 1974, p. 1; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, citing Enrique Bueno, Santiango Mella, & J. Macias of The Charles Fort Group; Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, A Catalogue of 200 Type-1 Events in Spain and Portugal, case #134; UNICAT, case # 506, citing Stendek, 1972, vol. 3).

1970 - At 4:45 p.m. a hemispherical metallic object landed near a car in Puits-d'Edme, Yonne, France. The car engine and lights both failed. The car operated normally again after the object flew away. (Source: Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 49).

1971 - Jan-Ove Sundberg was in the woods above Foyers Bay on Loch Ness, Scotland at around nine a.m. when he saw a grayish-black cigar-shaped object in a clearing in the woods. It was about 30 feet long with a curved standing portion at one end, so that it had the profile of a huge smoothing iron. Three grayish entities of normal human size then appeared out of some nearby bushes and stood together. They were dressed in what looked like diver's suits and helmets. They approached the object and entered it by a door in the upper part of the curved portion, the UFO then rose vertically to a height of 50 feet and then took off rapidly in a near-horizontal trajectory. Sundberg took a photograph as the last of the occupants was boarding. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, 1971-21, citing F. W. Holiday, FSR, Vol. 19 # 5).

1971 - At nearly the same time as the Loch Ness CE-3 encounter, three adults and four children were in an isolated area on a Mediterranean beach in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain when they suddenly noticed a very tall figure that seemed to be trying to enter the water in a very clumsy manner. It was a very tall, well-built, and human like, but with very pale skin that seemed to lack any pores. It had a large hairless head with a high forehead and large gray colored eyes. It wore a pair of green shorts and it walked towards the shore very stiffly, almost like a robot. It walked past the witnesses maintaining a straight steady gaze on them. The witnesses turned their heads for a second and when they looked back the being had completely vanished. There was nowhere he could have gone and he was nowhere in sight. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database, case # 643, citing J. J. Benitez, La Quinta Columna).

1971 - At 6:45 p.m. John R. Renz had just been relieved from guard duty at Francis E. Warren Air Force base near Cheyenne, Wyoming and had stopped at the mess hall for a beer. On his way back to the barracks he came upon an unlit area of the base at the concrete reinforced bridge, which crossed over Cow Creek. For some reason everything was unnaturally quiet around him. As he began to cross the bridge and just before he got to the middle of it, a paralyzing sound resembling loud heart beats became evident. Simultaneously the area around the bridge lit up like midday. There was also a heavy breathing sound present, and the bridge began to sway in a wave-like motion and then settled down. Frightened, he began to run toward the other end of the bridge, but before he reached it he realized that he had dropped his tobacco pipe and went back to retrieve it. The bridge was still lit up and the loud sounds persisted. He found his pipe and stooped down to get it. When he looked up he was stunned to see a six to seven foot tall being standing there, only three feet away from him. The being had a medium build as far as the torso, but its head was much larger than normal and it had long arms. It appeared to be wearing a wet suit. The hood and body suit were one unit. The eyes were covered with a one-piece face mask that went across both eyes, as if it was some kind of blast shield, but the nasal area joined in with it. From the nose there was a silver gray tube that stretched at least a half a foot long and went straight into the chest area. The silver gray tube was ribbed and looked like a tracheal tube. The hands consisted of three long fingers that ended in claws. The feet were three toed and did not appear to have any heels. When Renz looked up to the being's face, he was almost in a full standing position. The being raised its right, three-fingered hand and motioned for him to come closer. Instead, Renz turned and ran. His next recollection was of coming up on a military jeep and being picked up by two soldiers, still on the base. There was a seven-hour period of missing time.

Years later, under hypnosis, Renz remembered being inside some kind of object in a cockpit along with the being. The being spoke to him telepathically. He remembered descending through clouds of vapor that had a reddish brown tinge. The craft then flew in between two huge mountains: there was no vegetation anywhere and it looked like a rocky desert. He next remembered following the being through a huge door into the side of a mountain tunnel and entering a small room. In this room there was a table that floated in mid-air. The walls and floor of the room were a silver-gray color. On the floating table there was the carcass of a creature. The creature on the table had a larger than normal head and a face resembling that of a wasp. The eyes were large, like wasp eyes, and had slits inside that looked like pupils. It had what looked like multi-lens eye coverings, and it had a small jaw and a slit-like nose. The creature was about four to five feet in length and looked to have an exoskeleton. Its color was tan to brown with a bluish gray tinge. The humanoid creature gave off an unbearably foul odor, resembling a rotten egg sulphur smell. It had three fingers on its hands and at the elbows there was a sharp concave shaped spike at least six inches long. The mouth was gaped open and the teeth were like small shark teeth. A clear liquid with a reddish substance was dripped on the table.

The tall being then told the witness to leave the room. Outside the room he saw a saucer-shaped craft with a wide front end and a round tapered tail. The whole craft sat on two pillars, rectangular in shape with at least 50 feet between them. The being told him to go inside and sit in the left seat. On what appeared to be a control panel Renz saw numerous strange symbols. There was a sound like a powerful electric motor and the craft took off. Later he recalled the craft attacking a large mountainous area resembling a beehive. He could see numerous creatures inside. They appeared to be scrambling back and forth. There were a couple of hundred of them and they appeared to be the same as the insectoid humanoid that was on the floating table. The craft landed in the destroyed complex where he remembered seeing a live creature with the face of a wasp that was wearing a dark cape or cloak. Within its cloak it was carrying three small insect creatures at least a foot long. Their heads were triangular in shape with large eyes. The tall humanoid shot and killed the creature and the little ones. Renz was then taken back to the Air Force base. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1971, citing Aliens-UFOs.com).

1972 - On a highway west of Arroyito, Cordoba province, Argentina, an odd light appeared above a car containing two college professors, Professors Brunelli and Porchietto, at 2:40 a.m. Their car was then levitated, and this was followed by 40 minutes of missing time, with 80 kilometers of their trip not accounted for. (Source: Oscar A. Galindez, Phenomenes Spatiaux, March 1973, p. 23).

1972 - On this evening in Roosboom, Natal, South Africa Elias Khosa saw a "monster" when he was walking home. The creature had a square-shaped head, "like a machine", luminous buttons, and fiery eyes. "The specter faced him, but he could not see its head, although he noticed small flames burning around its feet." The witness invited the "visitor" home for a drink, but it turned and sped off into the veldt at high speed, "emitting flames and smoke." He later had headaches and pains in his legs. (Sources:Natal Mercury, August 23, 1972; Philipp J. Human, FSR, November 1972, p. 18; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, 1972-18 (A1161); J. Bernard Delair, UFO Register, volume 9 (1978)).

1973 - At four a.m. young Cinzia Giomi and 10 other people were returning from a show onboard a small passenger bus, when between Casalincontrada and Chieti, Italy they saw a bizarre figure almost six meters tall, leaning against a light pole. The being was human looking but very tall and thin. It wore a shiny white smock-like outfit and wore tall white boots. It had long white hair and a dark complexion. The witnesses were able to see the figure close up, at a distance of only two meters. The bus stopped in order for the witnesses to get a better look, but the figure quickly faded away, leaving behind a strong sulfur like odor and a consistent whistle-like sound. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1973, citing Fabio Picasso & Moreno Tambellini).

1973 - At 10:15 p.m. an abduction experience with missing time occurred in the city of Smalandsstenar, Jonkoping, Sweden to a man named Karlsson. (Source: UFO Information Sweden, November 1973, p. 20).

1974 - At 3:40 a.m. several observers saw a huge hovering cigar-shaped craft over Malesherbes, France. Next, two small domed disc-shaped objects were seen descending towards the ground. A short time later the witnesses reported seeing strange figures and hearing loud noises in the area near their location. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1974, case # 2413, citing Michel Figeut & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le Premier Dossier Complet des Rencontres Rapprochees en France).

1974 - Shortly after 7:30 p.m. three boys, ages 9 and 10, in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia saw a buzzing, multi-colored disc-shaped object land. It approached very suddenly from the sky and made an undulating motion as it came in to land. It landed with a blast of hot air, and gave off blue sparks during the process. An animal reaction was noted: their cat was frightened and ran away. The UFO had the outline of a door, and stood on three legs; it had a square at the top, and was 20 feet wide. Circular patches were found on the ground at the landing site. The entire close encounter lasted ten minutes. (Sources: Alan Landsburg, In Search of Extraterrestrials, p. 6; Coral & Jim Lorenzen, Encounters with UFO Occupants, p. 34; UNICAT, case # 480, citing Graham Conway, MUFON UFO Journal, April 1986).

1975 - At 3:30 a.m. between Rochdale and Ramsbottom in Greater Manchester, England a nocturnal light followed a flying triangular shaped object to the east. The objects hovered, then flew off to the south. There were at least seven witnesses, including police. (Sources: Awareness, January 1976, p. 23; UNICAT, case # 93).

1975 - At 4:30 a.m. Mr. & Mrs. Paquet were walking on the outskirts of their village of Forrieres, Luxembourg Province, Belgium on their way to work when they noticed ahead of them on the road a dark 1.20 meter tall human-like figure with a well-proportioned body. It suddenly vanished in plain sight when the man, thinking it might be his son, attempted to approach it. (Sources: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, Case # A1623; Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue # 152 (December 1975)).

1976 - At around four o'clock in the morning Dean Anderson and Wayne Schutte were working on golf course maintenance when they both noticed an orange “craft” as it dropped down into a culvert on the golf course at Peninsula State Park in Egg Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin. Anderson, who was riding a lawn mower, saw by its powerful headlights a figure first standing, and then running on the golf course, so he pursued him on his riding mower. He saw that the man’s helmet lit up and his belt first start glowing reddish, but then glowed green, yellow, pink, and orange, while the antenna on his helmet flashed bright red. Anderson had now closed to within ten feet of him, and could see that he was about seven feet tall and had a long nose. Suddenly, an energy beam shot down in front of the mower, causing it to stop, and the figure next turned around and looked at Anderson. Within a few seconds a small “scout ship” descended and opened a 3 foot by 3 foot door, which had flashing panels of light inside. The tall figure floated up into this doorway, and “the craft glowed bright blue, red, and orange and then took off.” The footprints of the man were measured to be 20 inches long, 8 inches wide, and five feet apart where he had been running. (Sources: Keta Steebs, Sturgeon Bay Advocate, March 31, 1977; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, Case # 1976-63 (A1490); Jay Rath, The M-Files: True Reports of Minnesota's Unexplained Phenomena, p. 66; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1976, case # 0331, citing HUMCAT).

1976 - On this night on Denslow Hill, Hamden, Connecticut two 14-year-old teenagers, Grey and Barnett, saw two very short humanoid beings shuffling rapidly across the road. They wore purple-colored, luminous, one-piece suits and their waists were only 20-22 inches above the ground. When the boys followed them a bright white, lemon-shaped UFO blinked on and took off into the air, only 15 feet away from the boys. (Source: UFOCAT, James P. Barrett case investigation files).

1977 - At 12:30 a.m. in Fage, Lot department, France a one-meter tall, upright metallic ovoid object closely pursued a teenage driver at a very low altitude as he drove along a winding mountain road. The UFO caused EM effects on the car's engine and lights. It flew away toward to southeast. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, November 1980).

1979 - A 40-year-old farmer and four others in Providence, Kentucky reported observing a silver disc-shaped object with a bubble top tumbling and turning at an estimated 2,000 feet altitude at 4:30 p.m. If flew around for six minutes before going over some hills to the west. (Source: Allan Hendry, International UFO Reporter, December 1979, p. 4)

1980 - Frank Scott and another soldier were ordered to go by jeep, to a location outside of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia where a UFO had recently been seen. They arrived there at around two o'clock in the afternoon, and observed a long cylindrical craft hovering close to the ground. The object was at least 170 meters long, and broad as well, and it emitted a buzzing sound that made the air vibrate. The craft was also emitting a beam of light towards the ground, and within the beam they could see a small humanoid being descending to the ground. The humanoid descended to the ground alone. Both men remained in the jeep, armed with their side arms, and watching the spectacle. Their weapons suddenly became disabled, as if welded together. Then there was a terrible noise, and Scott lost consciousness. He awoke much later in his base infirmary, not knowing how he had gotten there. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1980, citing personal testimony by Frank Scott to Overmeire).

1997 - At 5:20 a.m. a luminous rectangular craft was seen by two witnesses near the shore in the town of Cullera, Valencia province, Spain. It had two sections, was coverd with lights, and hovered for 50 minutes. It flew off to the south-southeast. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 345, September 1997).

1999 - At 2:20 p.m. three independent witnesses in Berks County, Pennsylvania observed a silver, double convex saucer as it flew over toward the south. At 5:45 p.m. it was seen again, this time flying north in Butler County, Pennsylvania. A married couple described it as a dull-gray metallic disc, like two quarters on edge. It was first seen flying in the west at high altitude, and then made a sharp 90 degree turn to the north. (Sources: Joseph Trainor, UFO Roundup, volume 4, number 18; UFO Magazine (USA), November 1999, p. 28).

2001 - Videotoape. A good-sized flying triangle with several white lights was sighted and videotaped at about 10:00 p.m. in Floriston, California. It had a bright red strobing light as well as the several white lights, and was the size of a Boeing 727. It flew over the mountain range to the northeast, stopped, turned off all lights for a few seconds, then lit up again and came straight back overhead without making a banking turn. It made no noise, even though it was close. The videotape is about 30 seconds long. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Twichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 81, citing anomalousnews@yahoo.com).

2004 - While out photographing a meteor shower at 1:30 a.m. two men, Mike and Lance, both 23, sighted three triangles flying in a circle over Palmdale, California, spinning at fantastic speeds, that then stopped and disappeared. During the sighting Mike called his girlfriend on his cell phone, and while talking the cell phone died. Then the digital camera they had, which had been fully charged, died and would not work, with the message "battery dead". Yet when they got home both the phone and the camera worked, and when the camera was placed in its charger the message "full charge" appeared. The triangle craft were estimated to be flying at 20,000 feet, and were the apparent size of a quarter at arm's length. The triangles had a semi-spherical shape to them, and both men saw high definition shapes in the crafts' bodies. (Source: George A. Filer & David E. Twichell, Filer's Files: Worldwide Reports of UFO Sightings, p. 100, citing Cosmic Connection, http://tvufo.tripod.com).

2007 - A single light was witnessed making 90 degree turns, starting and stopping instantly without acceleration, over Reading, California at 11:08 p.m. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, August 2007 archived webpage, report uploaded on October 8, 2007).

2010 - A witness reported he saw a large, black, silent, southbound, flying triangle with lights with a friend while camping on Cumberland Island National Seashore in Camden County, Georgia at 11:00 p.m. The sighting lasted 15 seconds.
