Among other things they told her that they were very advanced and possessed a device that could cure cancer and laser-beam like weapons of mass destruction. They added that they wish to help humanity, but that humans were too aggressive. Soon they told her that they had to leave since they could not stay in our “atmosphere” for to long.

Summary:  Two men, one 17-year old boy were exploring some old mine shafts when they started hearing clicking noises. They could smell a fire so they were curious as to what was on fire all the way down in a mineshaft. They went further down and they started to see a weird substance on the walls of the mine. Then they saw the fire farther down and they noticed that there was something near it, but they could not make out what it was. Upon closer inspection they realized that it was some sort of hideous beast that resembled a boar with human features. It had hands and patches of red hair on its body. It appeared to be bashing an animal skull of some sort against a rock to be cracked open. As soon as the creature saw the witnesses it charged after them. One of them suffered a deep gash on his back as he crawled out of the shaft.

Summary:  13-year old deaf mute, William Ortiz was riding his horse on a gravel road in his parent’s property when peering through the growth of vegetation on one side of the road, he noticed a child-like figure, but continued on his way. Then in an opening through the brush and in top of a large rock, he saw a disc shaped object with little figures around it. After staring at it he stopped in confusion, looked over his shoulder, and noticed one of the child-like figures next to him. He noticed that the entity wore some type of uniform, very tight fitting and covering the neck and legs. He also wore boots. The collar ended like a turtleneck, and he could see something like a seam in the form of a V on the shoulders. The hands only had four fingers, he was not really so sure. The being had a large hairless head. The eyes were big, oval shaped and very black, some of the other crewmember’s eyes were smaller than the others. There were no ears, just a little hole on each side of the head; the nose was small as well as the lips, which never moved. The skin color was grayish brown. The entity closest to him appeared to be a male. The others looked the same. The entity closest to him, looked directly into Ortiz’s eyes and started sending him messages and at the same time using hand signals or language. Eight enigmatic words were given by the entity, which included “sky” “love” & “secret.” After the message, the entity made a turn toward the rock. At this moment Ortiz could not see the rest of the crew. The entity went back to the object half walking, half floating, very fast. Then the object went straight up, made a turn to the southwest, and disappeared into the horizon. The rock on which the object rested has many peculiar symbols carved on it that included lines, circles, disk shapes, serpents and other symbols.

Summary:  Two elderly spinsters, began telling family members and close associates that they were going through some rough times due to the interference of certain “Martians” or “extraterrestrials” (a term hardly used in Spain during the time) were keeping a watch on them and would sometimes “experiment” with them. The bizarre extraterrestrials supposedly had the ability the enter their homes through closed doors and walls and would sometimes place strange apparatuses around their heads, which caused them extreme pain. At night they would hear the footsteps of the intruders in their home and other noises caused by the same intruders. There is no exact description of the extraterrestrials, except that they were apparently man-like. The elderly sisters reported the intrusions to the local police, which promptly ignored them. The intrusions continued in earnest especially when it involved a strange “machine” that emitted beams or rays. According to the sisters the constant bombardment of these rays contributed to their failing health. Several years after the incidents were reported by the sisters, one of them died as a result of lung cancer, the other sister never did mention any more intrusions after that.

Summary:  The main witness and a companion were heading home cutting through a neighborhood park. Looking up at a clear starry sky one of them remarked how many stars were out that night when suddenly he noticed something very strange. Almost directly overhead there was a circle of sky without a star in it. No clouds, no nothing but a perfectly round blackness. His companion dismissed the matter, suggesting they sit on the bench in front of the apartments to talk for a while. When they reached the bench, she pointed to a spot about half a block away where very quietly, a small silver-gray craft had appeared. It looked smaller than a school bus. There was a broad, shallow dome on top but no discernable windows or lights. They stared for some moments before something moved on the left side of the saucer. She could make out what appeared to be an “awning” slowly lift from the saucer’s left side. Instinctively they began walking backwards into the apartment building. Three “grays” in jumpsuits came in as soon as they were inside the apartment. One was stationed at each doorway and a third entered the living room. He went straight pass the main witness and stared at her companion, face to face. The creature was short, bald, with a flat faced profile. She thought it was wearing some type of dark glasses but she did not see any “stems” on the lenses. She “heard him” on his head, saying, “We did not come for you, this time. You were able to see us because of the attachments. You will not remember this.” He repeated that portion of his statement. The witness only remembered the episode 50 years later when she was hypnotized

Summary:  Marc Demarest, driving without lights by the light of the full moon, came over a hill and saw an elliptical object 500 feet off the road, hovering 75 feet above the ground. He stopped the car and got out to watch. Lights came from a row of windows that encircled the object, “like portholes around the body of the craft. There were blue exhaust flames coming straight down from it.” No noise like an engine, but a quiet hum. He could see shadows of figures moving past the windows, “but I was too far away to distinguish form or shape.” He watched for 45 minutes, and then reached for a cigarette; the moment he flicked his lighter, the object suddenly streaked off, disappearing in ten seconds. Demarest had numerous subsequent sightings, but none as close or detailed.
