Location: Bagley Minnesota
Date: April 1953
Time: night
The 3-year old witness at the time was apparently abducted from his bedroom by several entities. His next impression was that the entities were telling him “neither he nor his family would remember the encounter.” At this point he became angry and broke free from the control of the entities. Suddenly he woke in bed, a very bright light, apparently coming from above the house, shone in both windows of his bedroom. The light was brilliant white. He threw the covers over his head and could still see the light, also felt a presence in his “brain.” A neighbor had apparently seen a brilliant light hovering over the witness house that same night.

On Sunday morning Dino Kraspedon responded to loud knocks at the front door and was met by a tall extraterrestrial (1.80 m) that speaks to him in Latin & Greek and Portuguese but very little English, all with a heavy accent. He tells Kraspedon that he hails from Ganymede, one of the moons of Jupiter. Kraspedon will claim to have numerous contacts with this same entity, sometimes in public places. (The witness was involved in a UFO contact in November 1952).

Date: April 10, 1953
Location: Chariton Iowa
Time:   13:00
Summary: Early spring my brother and I saw a “flying wing” being refueled by a tanker at 1:00 – 2:00 in the afternoon. I understand that at that time there were no big Flying Wings. I didn’t know till years later, what I saw. Granted this is no UFO story, but it lets me know that there are really things up there unknown to most people. No need to contact me as that’s all I know. We were looking northwest, Objects were about 3-5 miles, guessing about 4000to5000ft high. (low ?) Duration: 10 min

Date: April 12, 1953
Location: Torbat Airport, Newfoundland
Time: 10:31 a.m. local time
Summary: ; An unidentified target appeared on the GCA radar scope on a magnetic course of approx. 270 degrees. One of the observers looked outside and saw what he thought was a B-29 a/c. When the object disappeared, the observer returned to the radar set where he observed the object making a 180 degree turn 8 miles west of the airport. It faded from the radar scope 30 miles away in a northeast direction. This sighting was phased into a vital intelligence sighting incident. ()

Date: April 12, 1953    BBU
Location: Sweetwater, Nevada
Time: 4:10 p.m. (MST).
Summary:  Ten round flat metallic colored objects changing formation traveled at an estimated high rate of speed on a heading of 110 at an estimated altitude of 7,500 ft. No trail, sound, or exhaust were noted. Objects passed under the right nacelle of the observers C-47 type aircraft, and were observed by the co-pilot. He took control of the C-47, and turned to the right in a tight 300 degree turn for a better view of the objects. Objects were then picked up unassisted by two more members of the crew. The objects were observed in a right turn of greater radius than that of the C-47, and at a lower altitude. The object were observed for approximately 120 degrees of their turn, and disappeared on a heading of 300 degrees. Observers were unable to estimate the speed of the objects because of the distance and the objects” large radius of turn.

Location: Ano Ilioupolis, East Athens, Greece
Date: April 21 1953
Time: night
Vassiliki F saw a strange woman in the streets of Ilioupolis. She had large, protruding eyes, high forehead, and incredibly thin waist and was wearing very old-fashioned gray clothing—a skirt and a jacket. Inside of this she was wearing tight transparent trousers. She was followed by a very small “dog,” actually a piece of shadow that was hovering very near the ground. She was holding the “dog” with a transparent thick cord. When the witness tried to ask her who she was and from where she came from, the strange woman glared at her and went away, vanished in the Saint George site of antiquities.

Date: April 22 1953
Time: afternoon
The next day, news was spread that in the nearby fields of Saint Nicholas, an “aluminum hut” came down from the sky and landed. It had “windows” through which a shepherd saw incredibly ugly dwarfs inside. Among them there was a dwarf with the head of an animal. In a few minutes, a door opened on the “hut” and a dwarf came out, holding something like a golden plate in his hands. Then, the strange woman Mrs. F had seen the previous day made her appearance. The dwarf bowed to her, and she filled the “plate” with dirt. They both went into the “hut” and the latter took off and vanished in the sky with a loud bang.
