The witness then saw a sixfoot tall human shaped figure floating just above the ground just ahead of him. It was smoky gray in color and was wearing a robe. No facial features could be seen. The main witness eventually also fled the scene.

Summary: H. M. a British instrumentation engineer, had driven part way up a mountain called the Drakensteen, 7 miles from Paarl, and was just turning back when a man 19 appeared, waving his arm to stop the car, and asked “Have you any water?” H M had none. “You see, we need water!” he said. H M offered to take him to a stream; the man asked if it was far away, and on hearing it was only ¼ mile, got into the car. H M offered an oilcan as container for the water, “That will be all right,” said the man. When they got back, the man pointed toward the mountain, into the area darkened by its shadow, saying, “There, please, there!” So H M drove into the shadows, and discovered, about 100 yards from the road, a lenticular object with squarish windows around its circumference, standing on 2 broad feet. It was 35-50 ft in diameter & about 13 ft high. Between the supports legs a flight of steps led up to a lighted opening. The man then invited the dumbfounded H M to enter the UFO, and with a “friendly gesture” persuaded him to do so. Standing in the doorway, he saw that a circular bench, or couch, ran all around the circumference; in the center was an array of about 8 3 ft hand levers projecting from a rectangular aperture in the floor, each ending in a sort of “fork” like that of an old hand brake, and beyond these was an object shaped something like an upright piano perhaps an “instrument panel,” though no dials or instruments were visible.The white light came from no visible source. In the UFO were 4 more men, one of whom was lying on the couch; H M’s companion explained that he “had got burnt in a slight accident.” H M was not permitted to approach him. All the men were short, 5-5’3” tall, and wore belted beige laboratory gowns extending below the knees, with trousers and shoes visible below. They totally ignored the witness. H M’s companion gave them water; on being asked if they needed a doctor, he said no. The he asked if H M had any questions about the craft. H M asked where the engines where; he replied “We don’t have any engines.” Pointing at the levers, he said “We nullify gravity; that is how we rise.” Asked how this was done, he answered that they used “a very heavy fluid” which circulated in a tube at near light velocity, creating a magnet. H M said such a speed was impossible. “No, it is simple,” he replied, “when the fluid is leaving the tube, it is already entering a the other end, thus its relative speed is infinite.” H M asked where they came from; he pointed at the sky and said “From there;” to more specific questions he would not reply. After 15-20 minutes of conversation, the man pointed toward the door and invited H M to leave, which he did. About 45 minutes had elapsed since the man had first accosted him. The next day he went back to the spot, and found some “very strange marks.” H M’s interlocutor seemed older than the others, perhaps over 40. The men’s bodies and faces were normal (perhaps with somewhat pronounced foreheads), their hair short and chestnut colored, none showing any traces of beard growth. Their hands seemed delicate, like women’s. The witness told this story to the investigator in 1977, while in Spain, doing work for a Spanish firm. He had never divulged it before.

Summary: Alerted by their barking dog two sisters, B Bahamonde & E Bahamonde looked out the window to see a two meter tall bronze colored fluorescent figure standing in the garden. The figure stood immobile in the garden. At one point the dog approached the figure and was apparently calmed by the humanoid using some unknown influence. The figure soon vanished. Soon after the incident poltergeist-like phenomena was reported in the household.

Summary: Clifford W. Bowman, 48, was driving with his wife over Union Bridge when he saw an object with multicolored lights—pink, yellow, and white—in the air 50 ft away. It was round, about 30 ft in diameter and 7.5 ft high, and had lights in “window shaped blocks.” It made a sound like an electric motor. His car’s headlights went out; then, as the object approached within 40 ft, his motor cut out. The UFO stopped and landed in a field, its lights no longer revolving. He stopped & got out, and started to walk toward it. Then he saw “a figure, or something” run around the UFO and get in, after which it immediately took off. The entire encounter lasted 10 minutes or less.

Summary: It was during the Korean War and a naval destroyer was on the alert for bombers coming in from the northeast, east and southeast. It was plotting all aircraft going north and south along the coast and in as far as the Appalachian Mountains. Source reporting said they tracked an object coming in from due east at a speed of 85 to 90 knots and an altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 feet. It got within about 30 miles of the destroyer and just stopped and hovered. Source informed the bridge, which informed the captain, and he instructed them to head out toward the object. About half an hour later, when the ship was within 15 miles of the object, the object suddenly took off on a northerly course very rapidly. Its speed was estimated at about 5,000 kms an hour. The object got to within 35 to 40 miles south of Nantucket Island and suddenly went straight up into the atmosphere. Altitude-determining radar tracked the object up to 100 miles above the earth and still going straight up. A report was made to the Pentagon.
