 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 May 14

1952 - At 7:00 p.m. attorney and ex-USAF pilot Mr. Stipes and Sr. Garcia-Mendez watched two shining orange spheres in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

Bradford, Massachusetts - 1965


1965 - At 9:30 p.m. a red light was observed maneuvering without making a sound over the town of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine for 30 minutes; it shot away to the north. (Source: APRO Bulletin, January-February 1966).

1967 - While driving near Alamosa, Colorado at 11:15 p.m. an Adams State College student named Hardwick stopped his car and tried to approach a cigar-shaped UFO that was in a pasture pulsating with a red glow 100 meters away.

1968 - At six o'clock in the evening the witness, Mrs. Valentina Flores, heard noises coming from her sheep pen located between the towns of Uyini and Otoco, Bolivia and went to investigate. She found the sheep pen covered with some form of plastic net, and inside was a short being 3.5 feet tall, who was killing the sheep with a tube with a hook on the end. The witness threw stones at the creature, and she was injured when she was thrown to the ground. The tube like instrument absorbed the net, and the entity rose straight up into the air with a strange noise. Thirty four of the sheep had been killed. (Source: Oscar A. Galindez, FSR, July-August 1970, p. 15; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A0906, citing FSR).

1969 - Three law students were on the campus of their Law School in Piedade, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil at 10:50 p.m. when they sighted a one-meter in diamter ring-shaped object with yellow-green lights in the sky maneuvering over and behind the faculty building. (Source: Irene Granchi, UFO Abductions and Reports from Brazil, p. 84).

1970 - At 9:15 p.m. an MIT graduate student and a friend in Bangor, Maine observed a northbound light that moved at constant speed, faster than a normal plane. The light separated into two lights; the southbound one stopped abruptly, separated from the other by 1.5 moon diameters, and then they began rotating 30 rpm about each other before finally stopping. (Sources: J. Allen Hynek, The UFO Experience, p. 42; UNICAT, case # 303).

1971 - On this evening a couple driving on the Blackfoot Indian Reservation near Gleichen, Alberta, Canada had a close encounter with a nocturnal light that paced their car, then car lifted the car two feet off the road, and set it down with a bump. (Source: APRO Bulletin, 19720301; William K. Allan, FSR Case Histories, August 1972, p. 8).

1972 - Three sisters who live on a farm about two miles southwest of Germantown, Illinois watched a brilliantly lighted UFO near their home at dusk. The object was first seen hovering over a neighbor's farm buildings to the southeast. The girls described the object as being of half-moon shape with a dark gray, metallic body. At first the craft displayed two brilliant white lights described as being quite similar to car headlights. After hovering for about 11 minutes, the object began to move slowly to the west. At this point the white lights disappeared and blue, green, red, and white lights appeared around the entire rim of the craft. These lights resembled aircraft running lights, but did not flash, and were visible until the craft was out of sight. Although the craft had been silent while hovering, when it moved to the west a sound similar to that of a small airplane was heard. However, the airspeed was about half that of a small plane. The girls observed the craft for about 15 minutes, and all had an opportunity to view it with 7x35 binoculars, and all were sure it was not an ordinary aircraft. The distance from their home to the craft when first seen above the neighbor's farm buildings is roughly a half mile, and they estimated the craft to be about 50 feet in diameter and about 200 feet above ground.

There were three similar rings six to eight meters in diameter, with three V marks at the external circle. (Sources: Oscar A. Uriondo & Roberto Banchs, UNICAT database, case 466; Inforespace, April 1975, citing Oscar Galindez).

1974 - At 9:30 p.m. a married couple named Muller in La Roche-en-Ardenne, Luxembourg province, Belgium watched a luminous "rugby ball" as it beamed a ray of intense light on a 220KV power transmission tower; it flew off to the northeast. (Sources: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case # 11320; Jean-Luc Vertongen, Inforespace, August 1975, p. 11).

1976 - Mr. Urruti, age 47, was driving his truck in Olavarria, Buenos Aires province, Argentina when he encountered an unusual fog while crossing over a bridge. An oyster shaped UFO emitted a blinding light beam, and both he and his truck were somehow picked up and abducted. Inside the craft he saw a luminous horseshoe-shaped instrument panel 3-4 meters long. A cask-like device with many cables attached to it was placed on his head, and he received messages from it that he would not reveal. He had sharp pain in his neck and wrists following the experience.

1991 - Two teens playing in an isolated field on this afternoon in Mini Mini, Puerto Rico encountered a small landed silver circular craft on the ground. It was very shiny and had a small dome-like sphere on top. The boys approached the object and began touching it. when a small hatch opened from the bottom of the craft and a long thin green arm came out and grabbed one boy by the leg. As the boy struggled to get away a second arm emerged and grabbed him by his arm. The boy grabbed a piece of wood and struck back at one of the creature's arms. He managed to cut off one of the creature's fingers and the creature let go. The finger fell to the ground oozing a green liquid. The witnesses attempted to retrieve the severed finger, but dropped it during their panic and fled. They later returned to find both the object and the severed finger gone. (Source: Albert S.

1991, Lancaster, California - At 11:00 o'clock at night the witness was suddenly awakened by three 4.5 foot tall Grey humanoids, with large black slanted eyes, who began lifting her from her bed. She began to struggle with the beings, when she noticed a tall human in the living room dressed entirely in black and holding a device resembling a small TV set. She broke loose from the Greys and yelled for her husband to wake up. He did, and they now both ran to the kitchen after hearing their dog barking in the backyard. They then saw a man wearing a blue Air Force blue uniform lying prone on a projecting part of their roof near a ladder. A K-9 sentry dog that appeared ready to attack their dog, was also now on the ground below, accompanied by the three Grey humanoid beings. Overhead a number or red lights were hovering. The witness yelled, "Do not kill my dog!" Her next recollection was standing alone in her yard next to the generator shack. A large craft with revolving red lights hovered above her and a thick fog was coming out of some ports around the object. She next remembered waking up and sitting up in her bed at 3:50 a.m. She was later hypnotically regressed, and recalled being taken to an underground facility, but would not elaborate about the details.
