 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 January 5

1954 - In Tooma, New South Wales, Australia three bright orbs moved very fast through the sky to the west at noon, orbited one another, then turned to the south in a line. (Source: Loren E. Gross, UFOs: A History. 1954: January-May, p. 9).

1955 - A red circular object three meters in diameter was observed to land and take off again in San Sebastian, Spain. Three independent witnesses saw the object come to ground. They described it as a very bright red globe 2.5 meters in diameter, which they thought was made of a metallic material. When one witness approached to within 100 meters, the object took off. The principal witness was a 23-year-old man named Galarraga.

1956 - At midday two soldiers at Fort Wood, Missouri saw a big silver balloon like object fly by slowly. No balloons were scheduled for release in the area at that time. The object rotated, then vanished. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 4893).

1958 - At around 4 p.m. a silver gray disc followed two witnesses in their car along the side of road in Bloemfontein, Orange Free State, South Africa at low altitude. It then abruptly shot off into the sky. Later that same evening in Beachwood, Ohio three nocturnal lights traced a perfect triangular path in the sky.

Hall, The UFO Evidence (Volume I), p. 15; Otto Binder, What We Really Know About Flying Saucers, p. 38; Richard Haines, Project Delta: A Study of Multiple UFO, p. 90).

1965 - At 5:56 p.m. an aerospace engineer named Bruton on Wallops Island, Virginia watched a round glowing object that moved rapidly from horizon to nearly overhead at the NASA station in seconds. Radar tracked it at 6,000 mph. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator, April 1965, p. 1; George D. Fawcett, Flying Saucers, August 1965, p. 56; Donald B. Hanlon, Flying Saucer Review, March-April 1966, p. 14; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II:  A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 150, 317; Richard M. Dolan, UFO's and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up 1941-1973, p. 412).

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: Robert Smulling, Skylook, August 1970, p. 19; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1966-01 (A0691); Francis L. Ridge, Regional Encounters, p. 20).

1967 - At 4:00 a.m. a 32-year-old man was driving to work in Winsted, Minnesota in his 1964 Chevy truck when he had to get out 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: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 809).

1967 - At 5:40 p.m. four observers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania watched a disc-shaped object for 45 minutes as it buzzed, circled, and flipped over several times, then shot off to the south. A box-shaped object was then seen flying north. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 7424; NICAP UFO Investigator, February 1967, p. 4).

1967 - On or about this date six witnesses from three families driving on Highway 55 two miles east of Farwell, Minnesota had their car engine falter when several tiny lights passed their windshield. The car functions alright after the lights had departed. (Source: APRO Bulletin, May-June 1967, p. 5; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 31).

1968 - On this night six observers with binoculars in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada watched four saucers hover over a radio tower. They had flames coming from the top and flat bottoms. (Source: Brad Steiger & Joan Whritenour, Flying Saucer Invasion, p. 95).

1968 - An very bright, yellowish orange, disc-shaped UFO landed at a remote distance from two men, Sr. Massague and Sr. Aguade, in the Torrellas de las Foix mountains, Barcelona, Spain at 8:15 a.m. It was ten meters in diameter, and estimated to be about 3500 meters away. (Source: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Catalogue of 200 Type-I UFO Events in Spain and Portugal, case 54, citing CEI).

1969 - At four o'clock in the morning a glowing object rose to the surface and floated on the ocean off the coast of Vina del Mar, Valparaiso, Chile. The surface of the sea boiled and there was an odor of sulphur in the air. At 9:00 p.m. in Port Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil soldiers at the Vila Floresta watched a hovering fireball that shot a fiery beam when it began moving. At 11:45 p.m. on the highway between Campos and Itaparuna, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil a single witness stopped his car to watch a metallic domed ovoid-shaped object hovering over a nearby hilltop. The dome on the object glowed a purple color. (Sources: (1) Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue 118; (2) Walter Buhler, FSR Case Histories, June 1971, p. 9; (3) UFO Nachtrichten, February 1973, citing a newspaper source).

1970 - Between 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 the sky and the village of Montigne, Charente, France were lit by and odd luminesence. At 9:00 p.m. a red disc-shaped object was seen flying at a very low altitude. The witnesses were 19-year-old Mr. Aubineau, 21-year-old Mr. Mijon, his son and two other children. (Source: Michel Figuet & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le premier dossier complet des rencontres rapprochees en France, p. 336).

1972 - While snowmobiling in East Kingston, New Hampshire five witnesses came upon an object close to some railroad tracks at 10:45 p.m. It glowed yellow, hovered 10 feet above the tracks, 300 feet away. It rose vertically, then descended behind some trees. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler, UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors, p. 341 & 358).

1974 - At 6:00 p.m. a motorist watched a nine meter in diameter domed disc-shaped object fly to the west over the reservoir in Rambouillet, Yvelines department, France. It directed a beam of light down on the water. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, June 1975).

1974 -  At 4:25 a.m. two police officers, Abbington and Regot, in a patrol car in St. Charles, Missouri followed an oblong UFO with two white rectangular lights and a rotating red light in the center. The object moved directly toward police at one point, and made a hissing sound like escaping steam. (Sources: George D. Fawcett, Saga UFO Report, April 1975, p. 50; John F. Schuessler, Skylook, February 1974, p. 16).

1974 - At 9:00 p.m. a disc-shaped object paced a car with six witnesses north of Glenham, North Dakota causing electrical system interference. The UFO followed the witnesses home. Small windows were seen through binoculars. (Source: Robert Emenegger, UFOs: Past, Present and Future, p. 128).

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. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1975-01 (A1381), citing Pedro Romaniuk & Jorge R. Martinez; Richard F. Haines, CE-5: Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind, p. 227).

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. (Source: Eileen Sperber, 1975 letter to CUFOS; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1975-02 (A1382); Vandalia (IL) Leader-Union, February 4, 1976).

1975 - At 4:50 p.m. three witnesses in separate cars observed a very large (88 meters in diameter) disc-shaped object hovering near a water 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. (Sources: Roland Godefroy, Phenomenes Spatiaux, March 1975, p. 9; Michel Figuet & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le Premier Dossier Complet des Rencontres Rapprochees en France, p. 530). 

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.

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).

1977 - At 2:30 a.m. EST in Napanee, Ontario, Canada three police officers watched a bright object hovering over the Lennox Hydro Electric Power Station. A red NL nocturnal light bounced up and down for 10 minutes. (Sources: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 11901; MUFON UFO Journal, issue # 118).

1977 - At 4:10 a.m. a 30 foot in diameter domed disc was seen over power lines near the town of Bednesti, 20 miles west of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada on Highway 16. A beam of energy struck two witnesses in separate cars, and both experienced 20 minutes of missing time. (Source: Michael Sinclair, APRO Bulletin, March 1977, p. 1; Joseph Kovacs, report to CUFOS, January 14, 1977).

1977 - At 8:00 a.m. two teenagers in Wrexham, Wales took photographs of four disc-shaped objects flying in a procession of objects.

1977 - At 8:00 p.m. a gray, 15 meter disc-shaped object hovered silently at 25 meters altitude near Eriswell, Suffolk, England for 20 minutes, 100 meters away. It then shot up into the sky and flew away. There were two witnesses and a dog present. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 11906).

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).

1979 - 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 database, case # 440, citing Alfred Budden, Fortean Times, issue # 50; Jenny Randles, Abduction).

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. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, February 1979).

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.

Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A2192; Albert S. Rosales, 1979 Humanoid Sighting Reports database, case addendum # 741, citing CUFOS).

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. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1980, case #3423, citing Jenny Randles).

1980 - A light in the sky flashed and changed colors as it moved over Santa Ponsa, Islas Malgrata, Baleares, Spain at 8:00 p.m. It made upward jumps in an oscillating motion, and would stop cold at times. Three powerful lights in a triangle pattern were higher in the sky, changing color from orange to blue to white, and making left-to-right moves. (Source: Richard Heiden, UFO Newsclipping Service, June 1980, p. 10, citing Baleares, January 6, 1980).

1986 - Police and several other witnesses in Mineral Point and Vermont, Wisconsin (both located in Iowa County) saw a silent nocturnal light at low altitude that hovered, turned, and made other maneuvers. It was covered on the local TV news. (Sources: Robert Gribble, UFO Reporting Center, case 1076; Jay Rath, The W-Files: True Reports of Wisconsin's Unexplained Phenomena, p. 84).

1992 - A luminous glowing ball of light flew eastward in a descending staircase flight trajectory over Longchaumois, Jura department, France at 8:45 p.m. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue # 312).

1994 - On this night a disc-shaped object with portholes and lights was sighted over Wilsden, West Yorkshire, England. The lights on the craft turned off when an airplane passed nearby. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1994).

1995 - Beginning at around 10:00 p.m. a silent, sky-blue colored disc-shaped object hovered for five minutes over Errington, Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. There were small red discs on the bottom of the object and a beam of light along the middle. It was back the next night at the same time as well. (Source: Chris Rutkowski, 1995 Canadian UFO Survey, case # 5, citing the National Research Council).

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. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1997, citing Sentinel News # 6, July-August 1997).

1998 - At 2:50 p.m. a silent, round disc-shaped object flew to the northeast slowly from Springfield, Missouri in an overcast sky. It tilted to reveal a silver top and a gray body. (Source: Joseph Trainor, UFO Roundup, volume 3, issue 3).

2000 - At 4:28 a.m. Police Officer Stevens in Millstadt, Illinois took a photograph of a huge arrow-shaped UFO flying from the northeast to the southwest at 1,000 feet altitude.
