1947 - A flaming object fell into the sea off the shore of San Diego, California. An investigation by the U.S. Coast Guard found no missing aircraft nor floating debris. (Source: Harold Wilkins, Flying Saucers on the Attack, p. 72).

1949 - A silvery cylindrical object with an orange-white exhaust was seen by a U.S. Air Force C-54 pilot flying northeast of Rome, New York at 9:06 a.m. It was seen again by another pilot at 10:00 a.m. (Sources: Robert Gribble, MUFON UFO Journal, September 1989, p. 13; Dominique Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 11).

1950 - Kit Carson, Colorado at 10:49 a.m. A witness described by Project Blue Book as a "reliable source" reported sighting two large, round glowing objects and three smaller, internally lit objects. The two large objects hovered for one minute and then moved, while the three smaller objects came from behind or from within the two larger objects, and all shot upward and away. (Source: Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

1952 - Between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., a silver spherical UFO appeared over the North Sea end of the English Channel during the NATO naval exercise Operation Mainbrace and was seen by several aboard several different warshaps. It was photographed by Wallace Litwin aboard the U.S.S. Franklin Delano Roosevelt. (Sources: Edward J. Ruppelt, Report on Unidentified Flying Objects, p. 256; UNICAT, case # 584; Richard M. Dolan, UFO's and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up 1941-1973, p. 403).

1954 - A bright light was seen in the east by residents of Oberdorff, France at 9:15 p.m. It came to the ground, lost its brightness, and remained in one spot for approximately 40 seconds. It was reported to be about the size of a small bus, and there was a figure standing in front of it. The object rose and took on the appearance of a red ball. (Sources: Le Parisien, September 23, 1954; Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 63; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, p. 210).

1954 - Three farmers saw a saucer land in La Chassagne, Correze department, France at 11:00 p.m.  It brushed a tree, leaving behind burnt leaves and ground marks in the dirt. (Source: Michel Figuet & Jean-Louis Ruchon, OVNI: Le Premier Dossier Complet des Rencontres Rapprochees en France, p. 85).

1954 - In the North Atlantic on Santa Maria Island in the Azores, at 11:00 p.m. Vitorino Monteiro, an airport guard at Santa Maria Airport,  saw a bluish metallic pecan shaped object 5’ x 10’ land on 4 legs, with a hum or whine. In its nose was an orange light. There was a Plexiglas type section in the forward end, which contained the pilot. There were four pole-like appendages, two at each end, which supported parallel aerials. A blond man 5’10” tall, wearing a gray aviator suit got out of a door located in the Plexiglas section, he approached the witness & spoke in an unknown language; he understood neither Portuguese nor French. He patted the guard’s shoulder, got back into his craft, fastened safety belts, and took off, turning almost straight up.

Gammell, Project Blue Book).

1954 - Late on this night two men, Srs. Atencio and Garcia, watched a luminous object in the sky for about an hour as they waited for roadside assistance next to their stranded vehicle that they had driven into a ditch. Later, they saw a luminous craft, which resembled a full moon, land behind a grove near Monte-Brandsen, Buenos Aires province, Argentina. Two one-meter tall dwarves dressed in white with big silver helmets got out and walked in their direction. When they saw the two frightened witnesses they glided back in the direction of the craft, which promptly took off fast. (Sources: La Razon, April 19, 1973; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case A0251; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database, case #1325, citing Hector P. Anganuzzi, Historia de Los Platos Voladores en Argentina).

1956 - The witness was sitting on the bank of a pond on a sunny day in Hope, Arkansas when at twelve noon he observed nine silver saucers that appeared at a very high altitude in the sky. The sighting lasted 20 minutes. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, report uploaded to September 1956 webpage on April 16, 2005).

1957 - At 8:05 in the evening Sergeants H. T. O'Connor and H. D. Bridgeman at Kadena AFB on Okinawa observed an object shaped like a coke bottle without the neck. It was described as translucent and fluorescent. It made four 5-10 second passes over the airbase from north to south, with 4-5 minutes between passes. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official statistics, case # 4959; Don Berliner, Project Bluebook UFO Unknowns).

1963 - A metallic cone was seen near the ground on a farm in Fano, Marche, Italy at 11:30 a.m. A tube extended from the object and scraped the ground with fast movements. The object made a whistling sound. (Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 6407, citing Maurizio Verga, ITACAT, p. 55).

1964 - At 10:00 p.m. four lens-shaped objects were observed from Comodoro Rivadavia, Chubut province, Argentina flying in a curved trajectory out to sea.

1965 - At 4:30 p.m. a young farm woman saw an object land in Pichaca, Peru and six dwarves, 80 cm tall, emerged from it. They wore very shiny white suits that emitted flashes of light, and "walked like ducks." She hid during the observation, and noted that they spoke in a language she could not understand. After their departure, a liquid resembling vinegar or oil was found on the ground. (Sources: P. M. H. Edwards, FSR, May-June 1970, p. 23; Coral E. Lorenzen, Flying Saucer Occupants, p. 114; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case 703).

1966 - A huge cone-shaped UFO paced a private aircraft being flown by J. O'Connor over Sebring, Florida at 10:00 a.m. The object made a "singing" noise. At first the object descended, then followed the aircraft, and finally accelerated up and away at high speed. The encounter lasted 17 minutes. (Source: NICAP UFO Investigator, October 1966, p. 4; Robert Gribble, MUFON UFO Journal, September 1991, p. 11).

1966 - A yellow-orange domed disc with pulsating white lights around the rim, and a red searchlight directed at the ground, was seen in a close encounter in Randlett, Uintah County, Utah at 8:30 p.m. by P.

1968 -  A disc-shaped object was seen low over a courtyard in Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil at around 1:00 a.m. Three beams of light came down from the object, and human-looking beings appeared inside each beam. All ascended back up to the craft through the same method after a minute. (Sources: Irene Granchi, UFO Abductions and Reports from Brazil, p. 70;  David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # A0973, citing Irene Granchi). 

1970 - A disc-shaped object, two meters in diameter, buzzed a car driving on a road in Alijo, Portugal at 10:30 a.m. Two 5-foot-tall beings wearing backpacks with aerials were seen near a landed object on the road. (Source: Victor Lourenco, PORTUCAT: Portugal UFO database).

1970 - At 6:30 p.m. a bright red-orange ball of light descended slowly behind some trees in Beverly, Massachusetts and landed remotely near a golf course. It appeared to have spikes or rays sticking out that also glowed a red-orange color. (Source: Raymond E. Fowler case files, report dated September 25, 1970).

1971 - At 1:45 a.m. Osvaldo Nestor D'Annunzio, age 19, was returning by truck along an isolated road from a local ranch in Estacion Gil, near Bahia Blanca, Buenos Aires, Argentina when he noticed a bright white object quickly approaching him at high speed. The object rapidly approached the ground in an unnatural manner by making a very wide curve. As the object got closer it looked more like a reddish, triangular light. When it came even closer it changed into a top-shaped craft that emitted a cloud of red and white flame. The craft swung from right to left in a descending pendulum trajectory, finally slipping behind the tops of some nearby trees near the edge of the road. Once the object went behind the trees, a powerful reddish glow transformed the night into day, and he felt heat emanating from the object. At that moment he blacked out. 

When he recovered consciousness he saw the UFO ascending, and it disappeared behind a nearby eucalyptus forest. He did not know how long he had been unconscious. Upon arriving home, D'Annunzio felt a paralysis in both his arms. He could walk, but his arms became so completely paralyzed that he could not use them to open the door, and he had to kick the door to attract attention. He was immediately rushed to a local military hospital for treatment. His paralysis continued until four p.m. the next afternoon.For the next seven months he suffered from paralysis in his arms, starting at midnight and lasting until early in the morning. He also suffered facial and scalp burns. Later he had further memories of the incident, recalling that he saw numerous cows and sheep standing strangely still at the edge of the road as the UFO descended, and the craft seemed to have split in two as it disappeared behind the trees. He further described the UFO as shaped like a child's top, metallic blue in color, and encased in a red glow with a flame shooting from the bottom. It was about three meters in length. 

Other witnesses in the area reported seeing the same or a similar UFO flying low over the area, including a man who reported vehicle interference as a result of the passage of the object. Later, local UFO investigators discovered dozens of cows and sheep dead and scorched alongside the road. Using a Geiger counter they measured a high level of radioactivity in certain areas. In the place where the object had descended they also found a burned circular area of grass about 10 meters in diameter. In addition, several metal telephone lines in the area were found severed along what appeared to be the object's trajectory. A last unusual detail is that D'Annunzio apparently managed to drive the last eight kilometers in only two minutes, so some levitation and translocation may have been involved. (Sources: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1971, citing Roberto Enrique Banchs, Las Evidencias Del Fenomeno Ovni; OVNI Web, Fenomeno Ovni en Bahia Blanca (erroneously lists the year as 1970); Data-Net Report, June 1972, p. 15).

1971 - At 8:13 a.m. a metallic triangular-shaped object was sighted at 33,000 feet altitude from a DC-9 airliner flying 40 miles southwest of Lanejevo, Yugoslavia. The sighting lasted eight minutes, and the main witness was named Lupancic. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, September-October 1971, p. 1; Ion Hobana & Julien Weverbergh, UFOs from Behind the Iron Curtain, p. 207).

1971 - At 10:45 p.m. a car driving northeast of Ojebyn, Sweden was engulfed in a cloud of blackness and then surrounded by intense vertical beams of light. The car was levitated and transported beyond its destination, and the driver felt a sensation of high atmospheric pressure. When the beams vanished, the driver saw a black object 1000 meters away rise from a field and fly off toward the south.

1971 - A large domed disc-shaped object with multi-colored lights around the bottom edge was seen at 9:00 p.m. in Fort Duchesne, Utah. (Source: Frank Salisbury, The Utah UFO Display, case A79).

1973 - On the 59th day of flight the three-man crew in orbit in outer space aboard Skylab III saw and photographed a strange red object over the southwestern Indian Ocean. It was not more than 30-50 nautical miles from them. Alan Bean, Owen Garriott and Jack Lousman reported that the object was brighter than any of the planets. (Source: www.nicap.org/SkylabIIIdir.htm).

1973 - Julian Garside was riding home from work at night on a friend's motorbike near Halifax, Yorkshire, England when the two young men saw three bright triangular lights, or shapes, gliding uphill through the woods near the road. They stopped and, out of curiosity, decided to follow. The shapes sped up and the boys noticed an odor like burning oil. When they reached the top of the hill, a quarter mile from the road, the figures had vanished; above them, however, they observed a small, round orange light, like a road-crossing beacon. It vanished in about a minute. There had been no path through the woods, and the three objects (or figures) appeared to glide straight through the undergrowth, leaving no traces. The odor of oil was the only trace left behind. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher: HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-98, citing BUFORA Journal, July-August 1978).

1973 - A series of reports occurred in Sidney, North Carolina starting on September 20. Though several people reported seeing something, the main witnesses were members of the Williamson family from the town of Sidney. They saw at least one humanoid with large red glowing eyes, a gray face, long hair, pointed ears, and a hooked nose. It was dressed in a brown shirt and black pants and had a small brown cap on its head. It walked with a limp and had one hand missing. It was said to leave no tracks and to leap 50-60 feet in a single bound. It had a metal medallion on its chest, which was said to be used for communication and disappearing. (Source: David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher: HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1973-23; David F. Webb, 1973: The Year of The Humanoids).

1975 - At 12:40 a.m. a glowing orb of light hovered near two TV towers in St.-Josse-Ten-Noode, Belgium for three minutes, then moved away against the wind. A perfectly ovoid-shaped cloud lit from inside hovered over the airport in Zaventem, Belgium for over an hour, beginning at 5:30 p.m. It was viewed through binoculars by several witnesses. At 7:50 p.m. a bright star-like object zigzagged over La Hulpe, Belgium then flew off straight toward the south-southwest. At 9:30 p.m. three nocturnal lights in a triangle formation changed into a row formation, then chased each other over Etterbeek, Belgium. They later regrouped. (Source: Inforespace, May 1977).

1976 - A witness was on his terrace in Digne, Basses-Alpes department, France at 10:00 p.m. when he noticed a luminous "cabin" shaped object that was hovering about 200 meters away and 100 meters above the ground. The object was 12 feet square and 6 feet high, and it was the color of an incandescent lamp. No additional structure could be seen. He watched it for about seven minutes. Human-shaped shadows could be seen moving around inside. The object departed slowly at first, then shot away at great speed. It made no sound. (Sources: Lumieres dans la Nuit, April 1980; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1976-24, citing ADEPS, March 1977, p. 5).

1978 - Two witnesses were driving on the outskirts of Tampa, Florida near some orange groves at around 6 p.m., when they spotted a huge dark blue flying object that had an orange glow coming from some large windows. The object glided silently over their heads. Through the windows in the craft they were able to see several figures that seemed to be talking excitedly to one another, and some of them waved down at the witnesses. The driver attempted to chase the UFO, which came down to some 50 feet above the ground. At this point their memory of the event becomes a little sketchy, and they experienced a period of missing time. However, the main witness did have some vague memories of the two of them walking through an orange grove without talking to each other. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, case # 3573, citingPeter Davenport, NUFORC).

1978 - At 11:30 p.m. Sr. J. Marchisio was driving near a lake in Maria Teresa, Santa Fe province, Argentina when he spotted a red spherical object by the side of the road. He signaled with his lights, then pulled over. Next, he was struck by multi-colored beam of light, and he was unable to control his vehicle as it was transported seven kilometers at high speed. During the translocation he experienced viewing an unfamiliar, altered or otherworldly, environment, and there was damage to his vehicle that resulted from the weird experience. (Source: Jane Thomas, UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1979, p. 14, citing Rosario Tribune, November 2,1978).

1979 - At 5:30 a.m. a pear-shaped form of blue light engulfed an automobile being driven by a 28-year-old nursing home employee in Poplar Grove, Illinois. The surrounding area was lit up like daylight. In addition, the car's AM radio was racked with static and the car lost power and was unable to exceed 40 mph. The woman next experienced an undetermined amount of missing time. At the same time another close encounter occurred in Fennimore, Wisconsin when a Mr. G. Gratz encountered a landed UFO that gave off a sulphurous odor. (Sources: (1) Allan Hendry, International UFO Reporter, November 1979, p. 12; UNICAT, case # 98; Jay Rath, The W-Files: True Reports of Wisconsin's Unexplained Phenomena, p. 68).

1979 - Miroslaw Goralski and Krzysztof Kobus had been working in their garden in Sztum, Poland late in the evening and at 9 p.m. were cleaning their tools when a UFO descended abruptly into their enclosure. One witness described the UFO as resembling a "ring," and the other--who saw it from a different angle--said it looked like "two silver deltas connected by a cross." Both men experienced a high frequency squeaking sound in their heads. As they approached to investigate they were engulfed by a dense white "fog" and illuminated by bright light. They both felt inertial effects as if rising up into the air at high speed. Kobus propped himself against a soft object like an "armchair," which later vanished, and he experienced a kaleidoscope of colors and other odd sensations as if thoughts were flowing into his brain from an external source. Goralski asked questions of what he supposed were unseen entities, and obtained partial answers in an unspecific fashion. "What is matter?" he asked, and the answer he received was, "The most important attribute of matter is its ability to pervade through other matter." Goralski leaned over to the edge of the "fog" and could clearly see the town below. He experienced a visual display like a "time tunnel," including people in costumes of bygone days. Suddenly they fell, as if from a height of about 30 cm, and landed back in the garden. Goralski ran home, arriving there at 9:30 p.m.. The witnesses were administered psychological test, that indicated their personalities were normal.

1981 - On this night a man reported seeing a bright luminous object on the ground next to a local bridge near his residence in Genoa, Italy. As he approached the object he noticed a very tall figure who was wearing a shiny luminous outfit. The being had very large dark eyes. Initially frightened, the witness became very calm when the being gazed at him with a very gentle stare. After a few moments the being boarded the cylindrical object that was partly hidden behind some bushes. The object then rose and disappeared quickly from view.

1993 - In Canterbury, Kent, England a large bright cigar-shaped object engaged in aerobatics for 25 minutes beginning at around 8 p.m. It shined a beam of light, and at one point moved over a mile instantaneously. (Source: UFO Newsclipping Service, February 1994).

1994 - A bedroom visitation and abduction occurred in Yuma, Arizona at around one o'clock in the morning.  A 22-year-old man awoke to find a bright light shining in his face and several figures standing around his bed. He next found himself in a large round, cold, seamless metallic gray room with a reddish tint. He was sitting on a bench next to two fellow abductees: a blond woman and a man with tattoos who both appeared to be incoherent. He saw tables and cows in the room, and beings that seemed to be removing things from the cows. He saw two types of beings. The large ones appeared to be in charge. He described them as lizard-like, very muscular, with almond shaped black eyes with yellow slits in them. They also had several smile-shaped parallel ridges on their faces. The smaller beings were working on the cows and wore some type of helmet. His next recollection was that he found himself on one of the tables. He lost complete recall at this point, and the next thing he remembers was he was back in his bed sweating. (Sources: Joe Murek, MUFON investigation files CDROM, case # 941101S; T.

1994 - Another bedroom visitation and missing time experience occurred in Miami, Florida in the evening hours. A 59-year-old woman went to bed with her dog sleeping at her side at 8:00 p.m.  The dog left the bed, as was normal, but when the dog began barking the witness turned on her side and she saw a small humanoid figure sitting near the foot of her bed. It had a large head and a brown skinned face. The startled woman took a swing at the figure but missed. Two other figures were standing next to the bed and they made a peculiar "chirping" or "giggling" sound. As she attempted to escape, one of the figures approached her and grabbed her by the wrist, apparently causing her to loose consciousness.(Source: Zimmer Mary Margaret Zimmer, MUFON investigation files CDROM, case # 950105E).
