 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 June 9

1951 - At 8:10 p.m. in Mikkeli, Finland two witnesses watched a 25 meter diameter disc-shaped object flying at 300 meters altitude. It was absolutely silent and continued to fly slowly at a low altitude toward Leningrad, Russia. (Source: (1) Larry Hatch, U computer database).

1954 - Janet Brown, age 16, and a 13-year-old friend of East Dandenong, Victoria heard a loud noise at 6:20 p.m. and saw a large, dark object that "burst into light" hovering 20 meters away at the height of a factory gate. It was cylindrical, 10 meters long, 5 meters high, with a canopy on top. It flew away and was lost to sight behind some trees.

1958 - At 10:17 a.m. a pilot named Scharf flying an F-102 fighter aircraft over Puget Sound, Washington State and many others sighted a white cylinder-shaped UFO with a slight orange tint, which oscillated and maneuvered for four minutes. The Air Force attempted to explain this sighting as a weather balloon. (Sources:Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, report form dated June 11, 1958; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 30).

1967 - Four Spanish Air Force pilots, in a T-33 and an F-86, were chasing a UFO over Extremadura, Jaen, Spain when their communication radios failed. The UFO played cat-and-mouse with the T-33 aircraft when the pilot attempted pursuit. After several minutes the object shot straight up and disappeared.

1967 - Six-year-old Leland Wlazlak was in the bathroom in Seattle, Washington at 9 p.m. when a red ball came in through the window and struck him in the forehead. It then "went up through the ceiling." He looked outside and saw bright blue, red, and black lights, and a strange being who had short horns, slanting eyes, and a lipless mouth. The stranger asked the boy what the garden soil was, and told him to "watch the rocket ship--he'd be back." Then he flew up on the roof with the aide of two tanks on his back shooting out white smoke. The boy said, "He didn't have a body." Two more strange beings were visible in the ship. Then the first being came back, asked Leland what a tree in the backyard was, and pointed a device that looked like a gun at him. The boy screamed and ran out of the bathroom. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1967-48, citing Richard Hall for NICAP; letter to NICAP June 17, 1967).

1971 - Shortly before midnight a man his driving car at the highest point on the highway north of Dunedin, New Zealand had his car's interior illuminated by a big, low flying, circular UFO. It was green in color, and was trailing a long sparkly tail of red and green particles. It came from the direction of the sea off Waikouaiti, and flew off to the southwest toward Taieri. (Source: Mataoru Ensign, June 11, 1971).

1971 - Mr. & Mrs. Alvarez reported that a seven meter in diameter dome-shaped object illuminated an area 250 meters wide as it flew silently and very close to the ground in Aznalcazar, Sevilla, Spain while they were driving in the area at 9:30 p.m. (Source: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Catalogue of 200 Type-I UFO Events in Spain and Portugal, case 142, citing Manuel Osuna Llorente).

1971 - At 8:50 p.m. Miss Esther Clappison or Rosedale, Alberta noticed a light outside her home and went to the window. She saw what looked like a rectangular window that she judged was about 200 feet away, illuminated from within by a white light. It was on a darkened object whose shaped she could not make out, but she believed was resting on the ground. In the window was a man less that five feet tall dressed in olive green coveralls. The outfit completely covered him, even his face. He seemed to be aware of the witness and he used his body and arm to conceal some sort of instrument panel. He seemed to be trying to attract the attention of another humanoid figure outside the object, visible in the light from the window, who was stooped over and picking up rocks from the ground. She wanted to get closer to get a better look, but her dog would not let her. Trembling and cowering, the dog forced his mistress back inside the house. After the object left the grass at the landing site was charred black over an area 20 feet in diameter. (Sources: John Major, FSR Case Histories, August 1973, p. 6; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1971-18, citing investigator William K. Allan for APRO).

1971 - An oblong shaped UFO was seen in the sky over the shore at Morgans' Point, Texas at 11:30 p.m. by a man named Churchill. It "glowed brilliantly pink and then faded" 4 or 5 times as it flew. It was visible for 90 minutes. (Source: Austin American-Statesman, June 12, 1971).

1972 - At 10:30 p.m. a young man in Algodonales, Cadiz, Spain observed a very bright light which temporarily blinded him. The engine of his car failed but the headlights remained on. Ahead of his car, in the middle of the road, was a yellow oval shaped source of throbbing light about two meters in length. Blue protuberances came from the light. It suddenly disappeared, then reappeared over a ditch and finally moved away silently at treetop height.

Hall, The UFO Evidence, Volume II: A Thirty-Year Report, pp. 16, 253).

1976 - Mr. Lusignan, a patent examiner, lost while hiking in the mountains near Echo Lake, Clear Creek County, Colorado saw two rectangular objects descend from the sky and land by a creek at about 10 p.m. He watched as 15-20 people emerged from the two craft. They were "dressed in Indian or gypsy clothing" and talked in low whispers as they set up a camp for the night. They talked in an unintelligible language. (Sources: Clear Creek Courant, June 18, 1976; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A1475, citing Leonard H. Stringfield and the Front Range Journal, June 17, 1976).

1977 - A yellow "TV screen" hovered just over the roadway in El Garrobo, Sevilla, Spain at 11:30 p.m. It turned blue and flew away. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, June 1978).

1979 - A private pilot flying southeast of Clearlake, California sighted six bright "doughnut" shaped objects flying at great speed. (Source: Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 42, citing MUFON UFO Journal, August 1983).

1992 - At four o'clock in the morning a man suddenly awoke in his bedroom in Malibu, California and found himself unable to move. He then saw standing next to his bed three small figures. They had pale white skin, frail looking bodies, large triangular-shaped heads, and huge luminous black eyes. The figures stood motionless staring at the witness emanating a feeling of curiosity. The figures then receded backwards and with an apparent look of bewilderment vanished. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1992, case # 1119, citing Jefferson R Weekly, UFO Magazine (USA), Volume 8 # 4).

1996 - At 6:00 p.m. a black sphere shot at an Air France airliner from the Mediterranean Sea, then flew 30 meters above the aircraft. The plane requested and made an emergency landing at Ben Gurion airport in Israel. No Israeli military launches where in the area at the time of the report. (Sources: UFO Magazine (USA) November 1996, p. 24; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 48).

1998 - At 6:20 a.m. several witnesses in a vehicle in Lynch Mountain, Kentucky watched a tall glowing figure, without a neck and with a large head that was large on top and small at the bottom. It glided through a guardrail towards their vehicle. As it passed by the vehicle shook very hard. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1998, case #3569, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

1999 - White filamentous threads like "angel hair" fell for five hours from the sky, leaving a sheen on paddocks, hedges, and trees over a 90 km area around Esperance, Western Australia. (Souce: George Filer, MUFON UFO Journal, July 1999, p. 14).

2002 - The National UFO Reporting Center in Seattle, Washington had two reports listed of a UFO landing with short humanoids near Polanuruwa, Sri Lanka on this evening. Two witnesses went to bathe in the nearby river when a UFO appeared overhead making a thundering sound. When it landed two two-foot tall humanoids came out of the craft. Reportedly, "very soon it disappeared." (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, May 2002 webpage archive).

2004 - At 6:00 p.m. local time a teardrop-shaped UFO and other UFOs was seen in Ruby Bay, Nelson, New Zealand. The witness was standing on the beach having a smoke when he saw the object, which had spinning red lights and was beaming light down into the water. He ran and got his friend to see it as well. Other residents of the campground also saw it. It moved closer towards the beach sending beams of light across the bay, and made an electrical humming noise and a thundering sound that could easily be heard. The craft moved at a phenomenal speed and disappeared and reappeared in different places, moving up into the sky. At about 8:00 p.m. and over the next hour another 6 craft appeared in the sky. The objects in the sky looked like giant orbs of amber light and over the rest of the night the objects moved around the Nelson Harbour and the hills around Ruby Bay. The objects came in close and shot off randomly for the rest of the night until morning. Flat batteries in cars reportedly occurred throughout the McKees Domain, and dead fish washed up on the beach in Ruby Bay later that day.
