On This Day

 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 July 2

1907 - Burlington, Vermont. The Bishop John Michaud was standing on a Burlington street corner around 2 in the afternoon, engaged in a conversation with Ex-Governor Woodbury and Mr. A.A. Buell, when without warning they were startled by what sounded like a nearby explosion. Looking eastward along College Street they observed a torpedo-shaped object, some 300 feet away, hovering in the air about 50 feet over the tops of the buildings. It was estimated to be about 6 feet long and 8 inches in diameter. It was dark, with red flames being emitted from spots on the surface resembling unburnished copper. The object began to move slowly toward the south. As it moved the surface seemed to be rupturing in places, and through these ruptures came the intense red flames. (Charles Fort, The Complete Books of Charles Fort. New York: Dover, 1974, pg. 292.).

1950 - Steep Rock Lake, Ontario, Canada. A man and his wife saw a double saucer with portholes and a rotating antenna come to rest on the surface of the lake. Ten figures, four feet tall, dressed in shiny clothing, emerged and walked on deck like robots "changing direction without turning their bodies." Their faces could not be seen. One of them wore a red cap, had darker arms and legs and seemed to be their leader. They immersed a hose in the lake, apparently extracted water, and then took off. Fishermen later reported a green moss formed on the lake. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, p. 195).

1956 - A bright object crossed and re-crossed the sky over Conway, Massachusetts. The Greenfield Recorder-Gazette said that "although traveling at what appeared to be a high rate of speed" the object "was able to reverse its course completely". (Source: Arthur Constance, The Inexplicable Sky. New York: Citadel Press, 1956, pg. 280).

1965 - At 7:00 p.m. five scientists and meteorological observers at the English research base on Deception Island in Antarctica watched zig-zagging, maneuvering, color changing UFOs for 8-10 minutes, including a lens-shaped disc.

Lorenzen, Flying Saucers: The Startling Evidence of the Invasion from Outer Space, pp. 234-235; Frank Edwards, Flying Saucers--Serious Business, p. 284; UNICAT, case # 110; Richard H. Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II:  A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 4, 150).

1965 - A woman named Brundage driving in Kent, Washington had a close encounter with a top-shaped UFO making a whistling sound at 11:00 p.m. It caused the car lights, radio, and engine to die. (Sources: James Moseley, Saucer News, December 1965, p. 27; Mark Rodeghier, UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference, p. 24; Brad Steiger & Joan Whritenour, Flying Saucers are Hostile, p. 41).

1968 - At 11:25 a.m. 15-year old Oscar Iriart was riding his horse in Sierra Chica, Buenos Aires, Argentina and encountered two strange men who beckoned to him. They were five and a half feet tall, with thin white hair and wore red clothing. The witness noticed that their legs were semi transparent. They told him, in Spanish, "You are going to know the world. We will take you. But not now, as we have a big load." They directed his attention to an elliptical object six feet in diameter, standing on 20" tripod legs in a drainage ditch. Then one of them handed the boy an envelope, telling him to dip it into a nearby puddle. He did so, and found that neither the envelope nor his hand were wetted. In the envelope, written in a crude hand like a small child's, was the message, "You are going to know the world, F. Saucer." The two men then got into their machine through the top, and it took off vertically at great speed. Oscar found both his horse and dog paralyzed, and unable to move for some minutes. At the spot were found 3 holes 5" deep, arranged in an isosceles triangle. 5 local skeptics visited the site at 2315 that night and were amazed to observed a luminous object zigzag above them at low altitude.

1968 - At 8:15 p.m. a boy named Sola saw a bright object hovering over a nearby mountain in Cofico, Salta province, Argentina. At the same time the boy beheld at only a few meters distance from him, a "strange being about 2.10 meters in height, hanging suspended in air, his body emitting a strange luminosity." This being suddenly spun around like a top, then rose into the air and vanished above the mountain. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-40, citing FSR, Vol. 14, No. 5).

1968 - A woman in St. Alexis de Montcalm, Quebec, Canada saw a green object shaped like a hat or mushroom at 9:14 p.m. which flew by at the height of her apartment window. She believed she saw up to 20 small men inside, all of green color with rather pointed noses, resembling sculptures in the African Pavilion at the Montreal Expo. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-85, citing Gene Duplantier, Saucers, Space & Science).

1968 - Constable M. Michaud and another police officer in St. Thomas, Quebec, Canada reported that at 9:30 p.m. they saw two naked little men run through a drainage ditch and flee. Their report stated that they thought they had cornered the "little men" but they disappeared as they were about to be apprehended. They were estimated to be only two feet tall with shoulders the size of adults and disproportionately large heads. The appearance of a large meteor at the time was also noted. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1968-42, citing Gene Duplantier, Saucers, Space & Science, Fall 1968).

1968 - Several witnesses in Wooler, Ontario, Canada saw a bright object land on some nearby brush at 10:00 p.m.. Later several shadowy beings were seen entering nearby homes and reportedly they took several items. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1968, case #2409, citing FSR).

1969 - An small flying object was reported to have landed next to the local primary school in Johore Baru, Johore province, Malaysia at 10:35 a.m. Several school children reported seeing five tiny men like figures wearing red colored outfits emerge from the object. The children rushed at the little men in an attempt to capture one but they jumped into a hole in the ground and hid. The UFO was described as silvery colored, and it also vanished. (Source: Ahmad Jamaluddin, A Summary of UFO and Related events in Malaysia 1950-1980).

1990, Kiev, Ukraine - Vitaly Rudenko and his brother were sleeping on the roof of their kitchen around midnight when they spotted a maneuvering light that changed color from a light silver to a brilliant yellow. As they watched an eerie silence surrounded them. Rudenko half jokingly yelled out, "Come down and take us!" Quite unexpectedly, the light descended rapidly and hovered very close to them. They described it as an enormous sphere that was slightly elongated. A dazzling beam of light shot out from the sphere and struck both men. At this point they lost all track of what happened next. Rudenko woke up later crawling through the vegetable garden with his clothing scorched. His brother was found unconscious with bruises on his forehead. No hypnotic regression has been attempted to date. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1990, citing UFOZone, Russia).

2001 - On this night Jose Da Silva in Canatuma, Amazonas State, Brazil saw a large disc-shaped object with several windows and a small doorway into which two two-meter tall humanoids were seen to enter. Immediately after boarding, the object began to spin very rapidly and rose slowly from the ground. It then emitted a sudden bright flash of light from the top section, and vanished in front of the witness. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2001, citing Thiago Luiz Ticchetti, EBE-ET).
