 Encounters with Aliens on this Day

 May 25

1948 - Jumping from a coal train at night in post-war Wesserbillig, Luxemborg 45-year-old Mr. Klotzbach suffered severe leg injuries and experienced a lot of bleeding. He fainted, but surprisingly when he woke up he found himself inside a UFO. The UFO occupants spoke to him in German. They shared with him some undisclosed messages, and he next experienced a further loss of time. He awoke again four days later in Luxemborg, legs fully healed. (Sources: Thomas E.

1967 - At 10:00 p.m. in Castro Valley, California Mr. & Mrs. Ofinowicz saw a metallic domed disc descend and hover at an estimated 5000 feet altitude.

1971 - At 10:50 p.m. Mrs. Rose was driving down a road in Belchar's Bar, England when her car headlights dimmed, the engine lost power, and a transistor radio died. An amber colored, disc-shaped object was close to the highway only 30 meters away, and it approached slowly and bathed her car in light as it passed over. When 110 meters away from the object her car's power came back fully. No other vehicles were in the area at the time. (Sources: Geoffrey Coxon, FSR Case Histories, August 1972, p. 9; Richard H.

1979 - At 1:10 a.m. a silver colored, heel-shaped or bullet-shaped object hovered between fifty and five hundred feet above some trees near the Sacramento River in Colusa, California for three minutes. It had a row of red and blue-green lights along its leading edge between two headlights. It also had a smooth metallic surface. It made a sound like an electric motor as it moved very slowly toward the two witnesses, Ruben and Carlos Genera. Many animals reacted to its presence. The close encounter lasted seven minutes. (Sources: Paul C. Cerny, MUFON UFO Journal, May 1984, p. 3; UNICAT database, case 235, citing Paul Cerny).

1979 - At 8:00 p.m. a nocturnal light came down and landed behind a store in the town of Charleston, Missouri. A neon sign was effected and a clock in the vicinity was later found to be 18 minutes slow. (Source: Harley D. Rutledge, Project Identification, p. 208).
