Date: July 1954: Cold Blow, Lydden, Kent, England Encounter


Location: Wegierska Gorka Poland
Date: July 1954
Time: afternoon
The witness had gone into a wooded area to pick mushrooms along with several other children when she became separated from the others and became attracted to some nearby cliffs. She then noticed a yellowish white oval shaped light in between the trees, which seem to hover above the ground. She approached the light and as she came closer she noticed a door and close to it, a figure. The being stood sideways but with his head turned watching her. She approached and climbed four “stairs” which led to an open rectangular door. Inside she met four more beings standing with their backs to her. The room had a cylindrical pillar in the center. The four beings inside were shorter than the one she saw outside. The taller figure wore a close fitting suit, the lower half light red and surrounded in mist and the upper half intensive red. He also wore a cap and appeared to have a hump on his back. He had small “wide” eyes, no nose, and a slit for a mouth. The witness heard an inner voice instructing her to lie down on the shiny floor. She promptly fell asleep. Next thing she remembers is being awakened by the other children in the field.

Location: Near Crater Lake Oregon
Time: unknown
Summary: A mother and daughter and several children were driving in a hilly area apparently lost, when they came upon a large circular lighted structure or object. The vehicle engine stalled and they coasted to what they thought was a parking area of a restaurant. They all entered the structure, which had walls like mirrors, and Plexiglas tables. They entered a huge room with windows on the ceiling. The occupants of the craft were all blonde and about four and a half foot tall, & dressed in silvery uniforms and boots with some kind of emblem on them. The witnesses apparently sat on a table and were brought food, which they ate. The beings had soft musical voices. Later when the witnesses returned to the site the structure or object had disappeared.

Ennio La Sarza, 35, said that he saw a spaceship 25 ft in diameter land at the Garson mine; it had a square center with a telescopic projection, 2 ear like spurs on its “head,” 3 sets of arms with claws, and 6 legs. From it emerged 3 beings about 13 ft tall, “built in much the same manner as the ship,” who held him with a hypnotic stare. La Sarza ran for the mine’s First Aid Station, where he fainted.

Two witnesses were out driving when they saw a white light drop out of the sky and go into some bushes by the roadway. After the light entered the bushes it turned green and began blinking. The driver turned the car lights off and saw a solid red ball of light drop to the ground 20 feet from the car. The witness then turned the car lights on again and saw a man standing where the red light had hit the pavement. The man stood directly in front of the car and was described as six-foot tall, wearing a tight fitting white shirt with some sort of vest. When the witness turned the car on again the figure suddenly vanished.

Date: July 3, 1954                BBU
Location: Near Bermuda
Time: 1:45-1:55 a.m.
Summary:  A B-36 flying over the Atlantic near Bermuda reported receiving peculiar radar returns on an APS-23 radar set. The returns consisted of a clear and well defined circular formation containing 7 and at times 8 objects. The returns were first observed by Capt. Charles C. Spahn, R.O. Spahn had 11 years Air Force service and 3,400 hours flying hours and 1,500 hours as a radar observer. Spahn did not think these returns were ships on the surface. He had tracked a couple of ships just hours before the returns showed up. Spahn says that the shape of the individual returns are not common to ships.

Driving in the dark, T & S saw something like a “fire” ahead, which proved to be a luminous entity walking toward them, with a white glowing body (bright, as if chrome plated) and red glowing head & hands. T had to swerve to miss it, passing within 4 feet and lighting the car with red light; at the same time there was loud static on the radio. The entity was 8 or 9 ft tall, had no face, and moved stiffly, like a robot.

Location: About 3 miles SSE of Carysfort Reef Lighthouse, Key Largo, Florida
Time: 3:40 a.m. 
Summary: Key West Naval Base USN Chief Quartermaster Milbert James Brown and Helmsman Seaman Sydney J. Martin aboard USS YTB-543 sailing S on 205° true course at 6.5 knots saw a huge, bright pale blue or whitish-blue egg or blimp-shaped 300-500 ft object with 4 pointed cones of light, major/minor axis about 3:1 oriented horizontally, angular size 3x sun, traveling at tremendous speed estimated at about 7,200 mph (better estimate about 5,000 mph) in level horizontal flight from the W through S then E then NE, at 10°­ 12° above the horizon passing in front of mostly cumulus clouds covering 30% up to 15° elevation. Brown first saw the object at about 243° azimuth 10° elevation about 4 miles away moving to the left heading E viewed across the bow of the ship to the SSW at which point he began stopwatch timing (6.3 secs at disappearance, azimuths measured immediately after sighting by reference to 5 ships and a landmark used as sighting fix points). Object passed through point of closest approach at about 160° azimuth 12° elevation 1-1/2 miles away, moving to the left through a gradual-arc flight path of about 8 miles radius of curvature (about 40 g’s centripetal acceleration), passed through E along a now straightened path headed to the NE, reaching maximum N position at 70° azimuth about 8 miles away when it curved slightly back as if veering off sharply to the right to head E, disappearing at about 68° azimuth 10° elevation 9 miles away behind a cloud bank. No sound or trail.

Buck Nelson was listening to the radio in his home, when a high-pitched noise and what appeared to be a foreign tongue cut across the program. He listened for a few minutes and then turned the volume down and tried to tune in to get the program more clearly, but the noise, mixed up with the babble of the unknown language, persisted. Meanwhile, his pony and his dog were both causing a commotion outside the house. Going outside, Buck was amazed to see a huge disc-like object, at least 50 feet in diameter, hovering over the house about 100 or 200 feet up, before it landed on the back of his 80-acre ranch, about 800 to 1,000 ft from the house. He had a very clear close up view when it was directly over him at the back of his house near the kitchen door. It flew low and stood still in the air for several minutes. He rushed into the house to get his reflex camera, but when he returned it had risen up into real low clouds with two other such craft. He took several snaps with his camera. One photo shows two space ships among the clouds fairly clear.

Date: July 30, 1954                               BBU 3140
Location: About 15 miles SE of Los Angeles, Calif. 
Time: 11:15 a.m. (PDT).
Summary:  Hughes Aircraft test pilots Englert and Peterson, flying a B-25 bomber on a maintenance test hop heading ESE airspeed 170 mph [true airspeed about 200 mph] at 7,000 ft, saw a metallic, pencil-shaped object in horizontal orientation hover at above 30,000 ft for an unstated length of time while they climbed to 11,000 ft and made 30° turns to try to get a better view of object [over 4+ mins at max climb rate of about 1,000 ft/min]. Peterson, also a National Guard F-86 jet pilot, attempted to scramble jet intercept from Van Nuys National Guard Ops but could not establish radio contact (EM??). USN aircraft from the S seemed to pass under object without noticing it. ()
