Summary: A round craft “something like a helicopter,” with a glass cab, landed on the farm of the father of 6-year old Abram Penner. “One man felt my body; they admired my hands. They have different hands than we do; they have round feet, short legs, no knees, and no elbows. They operate on mind power; I understood what they said.” His father told him never to tell anyone.

Summary: Mr. V. Dychkin and his friend were driving during a snowy night in separate sledges along the banks of the river. Dychkin’s friend was driving ahead and he was following him. Suddenly they encountered two “strangers” standing alongside of the road, and Dychkin invited them to seat on the sledges. The two strange looking men convinced Dychkin not to continue home because of the storm, but to turn to the nearest town and spend the night there. Though Dychkin knew that there weren’t any towns in the area, he drove against his will in the direction where the men told him. One of the men then pointed and yelled out, “Look, there is the town!” Dychkin looked and to his amazement saw a beautiful scene; something resembling a huge strange “city” was located on a flat plateau, illuminated by thousands of lights. The lights were positioned in a “fantastic” arrangement; he had never seen anything like it. Convinced in the reality of his vision Dychkin turned in the direction of the lights without hesitation. His companion followed and soon approached him. Suddenly both men were seized by incredible fear and rushed towards the road, never seeing where the two strangers had gone. Dychkin looked back in the direction of the lights but was surprised to see only the night gloom and darkness.

Summary: Claudio Rey Castillo was coming home late one night when suddenly everything around him was illuminated like daytime. The light seemed to emanate from something that descended from the sky at high speed. The witness stepped back and turned around and was confronted by a huge man-like figure. It resembled a giant man that emitted intermittent flashes of white light. He could not see any features on the humanoid, which seemed to float just above the ground. The humanoid was all white in color and moved slowly back and stopped right under the entrance to the local church. At this point the witness noticed that the figure must have been some 3.30 meters in height. Armed with a knife he moved towards the figure, which suddenly seemed to “tremble” and raised his arms up showing the palms of its hands. It then drifted back and disappeared into the darkness as the horrified witness watched.

He came closer and saw two men standing next to it, who seemed to be wearing military uniforms. The mayor asked the men who they were and where they were from but received no reply. The men then chased the witness and caught him dragging him inside the “machine”, despite his protests. In the air the “pilots” asked the mayor numerous questions but he refused to answer. Soon the object landed and he was released near the city of Bar 60 km from Vyhilevka. The “machine” then disappeared in an unknown direction.
