Date: January 1954: Near Acapulco Mexico Abduction?


Location: Los Toldos, Salta, Argentina
Date: January 1954
Time: late night
25-year old Martin Antiman (now a local Indian “Cacique” ‘chieftain’) was in his room alone when he suddenly heard a very high pitched sound. At the same time a type of “magnetic” force somehow introduced him into a type cabin or “elevator” which had appeared in the room. Immediately after the cabin or elevator departed at fantastic speed and everything became very silent around him. The door suddenly opened and he stepped out finding himself in a sort of mountainous valley very desolate in appearance. He walked about 100 meters and saw several men carrying large bags on their shoulders. He yelled and whistled at the men in order to communicate with them, but these seemed to ignore him. He then heard a voice in his mind that told him that the men did not answered him because “they had no brains” and could not hear the voice of the “creator”. The voice then told him that he must tell all he could about this “vision”. Soon he was introduced inside the cabin or elevator like object. Moments later the door opened and he found himself back in his room. He never spoke to anyone about this incident for at least 20 years.

Date: January 1, 1954
Location: Sioux City, IA
Time: 22:00
Summary: 1954 Radar sighting, Air Force base in Iowa – 50000 – 80000 feet 1,200 – 1,800 miles per hour. This is a story my dad told my brother and I in 1975, about a year before he died. He joined the Air Force in 1950 after 2 years at the University of Minnesota and spent some time in Korea as a jet mechanic and then came stateside and was stationed at Sioux City Iowa, were he was trained as a radar technician. One night in 1954 the whole base went on alert suddenly and they were told there was an unknown object coming from the north. They got a radar reading that it was at 50000-80000 feet and traveling in excess of 1,200 mph (I recall him saying 1,800 mph but my brother said 1,200 so we’ll go with that). It went off the screen to the south, and everybody in the room was told to forget it even happened. He never told us or anybody else about that before, but my mom confirmed today that he told her about it the next day (he was on the overnight shift).

Date: Jan. 1, 1954          BBU
Location: Toms River, Marlton, Woodbury, and Surf City, New Jersey
Time: 10:35 p.m, 12:05 a.m. (Jan. 2).
Summary: Navy pilot Lt. JG George G. Morgan of Lakehurst NAS, police chief (or captain?) Richard Clement, police officer Oliver G. Osborne and other officers, and 20+ other witnesses, saw 3-12 round or oval white objects with fuzzy edges slightly smaller than Full Moon angular size hovering in the sky to the S for 1.5 hours as 2 objects circled around one (in 2-4 secs) (seen to the ESE from Woodbury, SW from Surf City at high elevation), then switched places with each other. Some witnesses (such as Mrs. Worthington and son Norton in Woodbury) attempted to drive towards the objects to investigate. Objects suddenly departed to the SW at extremely high speed growing smaller until disappearance in 1-2 secs covering about 60° of sky. Multiple independent witnesses across a baseline of at least 12 miles resulted in triangulation near Beach Haven, NJ, from distances of about 15 to 40 miles. At least 5 witnesses used binoculars including 7×50 Bausch & Lomb. Hynek calculated speed of 90,000 mph, hovering altitude 4 miles, object diameter 1,500 ft.

Date: Jan. 4, 1954
Location: Merignac Airfield France
Time: 9:00 p.m.
Summary: Shortly after, a round luminous machine, coming from the South, landed at the Marignane airfield in Bouches-du-Rhone Department. There was only one witness present at the field. The machine disappeared while he was telephoning the control tower. Careful scrutiny of the runway in the morning turned up a few pieces of metallic debris. The witness story was confirmed by that of a Marseilles resident who driving from Aries to Marseilles saw a large, round, reddish fire ball in the sky, but placed the time at 2245 hours.

Date: Jan.9, 1954
Location: Three residents of Luneville, France
Time: 6:00 a.m.
Summary: Three residents of Meurthe-et-Moselle Department claim to have seen a round object flying from North to South. The object flew more slowly than a jet plane and left a luminous yellow trail. It flew noiselessly, although appearing to be at a low altitude. Several students of the College de Luneville also saw the object.

Date: Jan. 10, 1954                              BBU
Location: 5 mi N of Sonoita (about 25 mi SSE of Tucson), Ariz.
Time: 5:25-5:40 p.m. (MST).
Summary:
James E. McDonald, two other Univ. of Chicago meteorologists, and another passenger in a car were driving N on Hwy 83 when McDonald spotted a brilliant white stationary object, stellar magnitude was about 5 to 7, in the SW at about 238° azimuth about 1° to 2° above the Santa Rita Mtns. (elev. about 9,400 ft) about 10 miles away, or at a total elevation about 6° to 8° above horizontal. Sun had set below mountains at 243° azimuth, +2° apparent elevation (refraction included), to the right of the UFO. No noticeable parallax with mountains as they drove 8-10 miles further N (with wide swerves W and E by about 1.5 mi), thus distance estimated at >10 miles (size possibly about >15 ft). Lost sight due to mountains as they drove on.

Date: Jan. 14, 1954                                            BBU
Location: Kelly AFB, Texas
Time: 10:10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Summary: One to three blips were seen on PPI scope of radar system with speeds from 100 to 6,000 mph over one hour and 50 minute time span. The blips appeared as solid objects. Aircraft scrambled with no contact. Three objects joined together for approximately three minutes then separated with a definite heading and disappeared when local aircraft was in area. The objects returned to area after aircraft departed.

Date: January 14 1954
Time: 0130am
A young student, Miss E. D. Bonacini, was returning home with her boyfriend when both of them observed a rectangular red light in the sky. Looking at it again quickly, they saw that the light had changed its shape, becoming a kind of “upside down parachute” that was moving toward them. After 90 seconds, it was very close, nearly overhead, hovering at a height comparable with that of a three—or four story building. The object resembled a half sphere with a small protuberance in its lower section and a very bright area midsection, fading away toward its outer perimeter. The object was “as wide as the road,” i.e. approximately 18 meters in width. The two witnesses watched from a hidden position for about nine minutes. They had the feeling that “somebody” was observing them from inside of the object. Then, they decided to run away. As they an, they object tilted 45 degrees, attaining a vertical orientation and departing quickly in the direction of Fiumicino. The craft slowed down after some kilometers and became lost from view following another 90 seconds or so. As it departed, the object displayed all the colors of the rainbow.

Date: Jan. 18, 1954
Location: Over Three Constantine Department Towns, Algeria
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Summary: Many persons in Saint Arnaud observed an object leaving a double trail of white smoke, describing an immense circle over the town. Several officers at La Remonte Military base nearby even heard a strange sound made by the object which seemed to have come from the north. (A similar observation had been made on January 16, 1954, when the object had come from the west). The meteorological station at Oued Hamimime airport (near Constantine) reported that it had observed a double trail of smoke at 1400 hours but concluded that the smoke came from a plane flying at great altitude. At 1430 hours, inhabitants of Setif saw an object arrive from the east, emitting bluish smoke trails and moving relatively slowly. After circling above the town for several seconds, it suddenly headed back in the direction of Saint Arnaud at great speed. Most of the spectators described it as it being cigar-shape and flying at high altitude. Finally at 1645 hours on the same day, a large, luminous, rectangular-shape object was seen over Ouled Djellal (200 kilometers southwest of Setif) for over 30 minutes following a rectilinear course. The object came from the east and disappeared toward the west.

Date: Jan. 28, 1954
Location: Blackstone, Virginia
Time: 5:15 p.m. EST.
Summary: A circular bright light with an apparent bright metallic surface stationary at 30 degrees elevation in the north was observed by Marvin B. Smith, Jr. a former control tower operator in the Air Force, and three CAA employees. A C-47 identified as an USAF Evacuation Plane flew over the CAA station and was notified of the object and the pilot advised that he also saw the object, which he thought was at between 30 and 40 thousand feet in altitude. The object was observed for 31 minutes.
