Location: Agia Mavra Village, Helis County, Greece
Time: daytime
Summary: Miltiades Boyopoulos was at a location called Gefyria when he saw a “woman dressed in black” walking towards him. He continued his way. When the distance between them was approximately 6 meters, the woman suddenly shrunk, until she was as tall as a 10-year old child. After that, she made a 90-degree turn to the left and entered the tall vegetation of a nearby crop. The witness was terrified.

LocationAguilas, Murcia, Spain
Time: night
Summary: A man named Mendoza had just finished showing a film in an outdoor setting and was busy rewinding the movie and cleaning the filters on the old projector, while busy at his job he noticed that a bright light had descended over him, and hovered silently overhead. Suddenly he heard a strong telepathic command instructing him to start writing; surprised he looked up and saw a huge luminous sphere suspended silently in midair. He felt no fear and stared at the luminous sphere. Suddenly he heard the voice again in his mind instructing him once again to write something, what he did not know. He could not find any pencil or paper so he used some carbon paper from the projector and some white chalk. Soon a powerful voice claiming to be “Messenger Herion” a visitor from the 4rth planet orbiting the star Alpha Centauri. The message Mendoza wrote was mainly of a religious nature, which pointed out the virtues of the earth and its human habitants. It mentioned a universal “Absolute Truth” which one-day would be known. The message was signed again by “Herion” and gave the year of 10860 from the sinking of the Islands of Atlantis. The sphere of light then flew silently away.

Date: Aug. 14, 1950
Location: 10 miles N. of Cromer, England (BBU)
Time: 1:22 p.m. (GMT). 
Summary: RAF Fighter Command Control at Neatishead radar tracked an unidentified aircraft located near Cromer at 15,000 ft traveling about 325 knots (375 mph). Neatishead GCI controller scrambled 257 Squadron Red Section leader Flight Lt. Kartley and a wingman at 1:24 p.m. in 2 RAF Meteor jet fighters from RAF Horsham St. Faith airborne 1:27 p.m. At 1:28 p.m. Neatishead Type 13 radar tracked target at 40,000 ft and height was radioed to jets which leveled off at 15,000 ft. At 1:35 p.m. jets reached 10 miles N of Cromer climbing in altitude to 25,000 and 30,000 ft where the pilots saw two vapor trails suggesting to them widely spaced engines on a single aircraft to their right at great distance and higher altitude on a heading of 280° on a parallel course to the jets. Jets got “slightly ahead” of the contrails while keeping them in sight, at a radar track range of 5 miles to the target.

Date: Aug. 24, 1950
Location: About 250 miles SW of Bermuda (BBU 787)
Time: 8:04-8:24, 8:27 p.m. (AST).
Summary: USAF 373rd Recon Sq (Very Long Range) B-29 from Kindley AFB, Bermuda, piloted by 1st Lt. Frank J. Stockton was flying at 192 knots (221 mph) at 10,000 ft heading 27° (about NNE) when radarman S/Sgt. William W. Shaffer turned on his APQ-13-A radar and tracked a distinct bright unidentified target appearing to travel at same speed and heading as B-29 but about 1,000 ft lower and at 10° left of dead ahead 12 o’clock position about 1-1/2 miles away. Shaffer alerted pilot Stockton who alerted crew to look for visual, without success, possibly due to 50% cumulus cloud coverage; two officers verified Shaffer’s radar scope readings. Radar target maintained position for several mins then started to fall behind gradually until overtaken by B-29 passing about 1/4 mile to the left, then holding a trailing position behind the B-29 for about 5 mins, then increased speed passing B-29 on the right at about 1/4 mile, drawing slightly ahead of B-29 then gradually turning away to the right and accelerating rapidly. Pilot turned away 20° left to see if target would follow, but it didn’t, instead continuing its gradual right turn until it disappeared off scope at about 400 knots (460 mph) at 8:24 p.m. at 30°15’ N, 67°12’ W [about 30 miles to the SSW when B-29 was at about 30°37’ N, 66°54’ W]. At about 8:27 p.m. B-29 crew member saw a bluish streak flash past the left wing from head on position about 1,000 ft below, appearing like a meteor but less bright than lightning.

Location: Near Brockton, Mass. (BBU)
Time: 6:30 p.m. 
Summary: USN radio mechanic John T. Early from Quonset NAS, Rhode Is., who was a licensed civilian pilot, was flying with a passenger Russell Des-Jardins at 1,300 ft when they spotted a shiny white spherical object with no projections or irregularities on its surface about 20 ft diameter at least 1,000 ft below their aircraft flying at high speed, jet speed [600 mph?], to the E cross wind. No exhaust smoke or unusual noise.

Date: Aug. 30, 1950
Location: Earnest Harmon AFB, Newfoundland
Time: 0545Z (1:15 a.m. local time)
Summary: An object was picked up on the GCA scope travelling at an estimated 40 to 60 mph at an estimated 4 to 6 thousand feet on a course of 120 degrees until it reached the 5-mile ring where it paused for 30 seconds. A blip picked up on a second scope veered to a heading of approx. 210 degrees then to 140 degrees and disappeared at approx 9 mile range. There were no aircraft in the GCA area at the time.

Date: Aug. 30, 1950
Location: S of Sandy Point/Indian Head, Newfoundland, Canada. (BBU 790)
Time: 1:30-1:50 p.m. (ADT). 
Summary: 3 civilian Harmon AFB Water Transportation Section employees, John Kaeel, Fred Messervery and John Smith, located [in a boat] about 2 miles S of Indian Head (48°29’ N, 58°30’ W) saw a black or dark round object the size [shape?] of a barrel resembling a “large balloon” located about 3 miles SW of Indian Head (at 48°27’ N, 58°33’ W) about 1-1.5 [?] miles offshore [apparently about 2 miles to the W of the observers]. The object was hovering just above the water and after a few mins began to slowly ascend to about 15-20 ft above water, then descended again to just above water, in about a 40-60-sec cycle each time which occurred 3 times. On the last cycle the object remained near the surface about 3-4 mins when it ascended vertically until disappearance at 1:50 p.m. [See similar sighting at 2 p.m. near Kippens.] Helicopter search at 4:20 p.m. negative. [No unidentified ground radar returns were reported yet false explanation of “WX Returns” (weather returns) inserted into BB file listings.]  20 mins

Date: Aug. 30, 1950
Location: S of Kippens, Newfoundland, Canada (BBU 790)
Time: 2 and 4? p.m. (ADT). 
Summary: William Alexander, son Bill Alexander and nephew Austin Alexander, fishing in a dory boat about 1-1/2 miles offshore from Kippens, saw a black or yellowish-brown object thought to be a submarine, the size of a dory [about 20 ft] about 1-1/2 to 2 miles away [to the S?], about 3 miles offshore about 15-20 ft above the water, the shape of a large aerial gunnery target balloon or a barrel with a pole or periscope trailing from its center line into the water, moving at 3-5 mph to the NNE [towards shore?]. Object disappeared over the horizon; briefly re-sighted from high ground ashore sometime later [about 4 p.m.?]. Reported to the USAF at 4:10 p.m. No smoke, exhaust, noise or markings. Helicopter search at 4:20 p.m. negative. [See earlier similar sighting from Sandy Point/Indian Head.] ()

Date: Aug. 30, 1950
Location: Holloman AFB, Alamogordo, New Mexico (BBU)
Time: 10:45 a.m. 
Summary:;
During a Bell Aircraft MX-776 Shrike missile test (for the later Rascal air-to-ground strategic missile) USAF M/Sgt and 8 Bell Aircraft employees on base saw two glaringly bright circular to elliptical unidentified objects maintaining relative position to each other following the B-50 launch aircraft from above on both the dry run and hot run prior to missile release. Objects gave “strong glare at all times” not reflected sunlight, maneuvered at high estimated speeds up to 10x the B-50 or roughly 2,500 mph for short distances, left no vapor trails, hovered, accelerated rapidly, made abrupt “square” turns with apparent size changing to indicate ascent and descent. 30 mins

Date: Aug. 30, 1950
Location: S of Kippens, Newfoundland, Canada (BBU 790)
Time: 2 and 4? p.m. (ADT). 
Summary: William Alexander, son Bill Alexander and nephew Austin Alexander, fishing in a dory boat about 1-1/2 miles offshore from Kippens, saw a black or yellowish-brown object thought to be a submarine, the size of a dory [about 20 ft] about 1-1/2 to 2 miles away [to the S?], about 3 miles offshore about 15-20 ft above the water, the shape of a large aerial gunnery target balloon or a barrel with a pole or periscope trailing from its center line into the water, moving at 3-5 mph to the NNE [towards shore?]. Object disappeared over the horizon; briefly re-sighted from high ground ashore sometime later [about 4 p.m.?]. Reported to the USAF at 4:10 p.m. No smoke, exhaust, noise or markings. Helicopter search at 4:20 p.m. negative. [See earlier similar sighting from Sandy Point/Indian Head.] ()

Date: Aug. 31, 1950
Location: Holloman AFB, Alamogordo, New Mexico (BBU)
Time: 10 a.m. ­ 1 p.m. (MST). 
Summary: After V-2 missile launch no. 51, Project TWINKLE Askania theodolite crews tracked and filmed multiple objects sporadically several times from several different directions at very high speeds over the course of 3 hrs. Askania cinetheodolite station P-5 filmed object with major axis varying from 8.65 to 13.243 arcmins (0.1442° to 0.22072°), minor axis 3.493 arcmins (0.05822°), one frame per second 60 cm focal length camera, 35 mm color film. Tape recording of audio reporting. Frames 593 and 595 (2 secs of nearly 10 mins? of film of object) show elevation angle changing from 53°44′ to 52°38′ at a rate of 0.37°/sec. Attempted interception by 4 F-86 jets from 93rd FIS, Kirtland AFB, for 1 hr failed to locate objects, which apparently returned after jets left. Cinetheodolite observers noted object with definite shape and 3-D depth but indistinct or not sharp edges, no smoke or trail, object seemed to “rock or oscillate,” lost when observer looked away to get angle reading.
