Location: Hull Yorkshire England
Date: Summer 1954
Time: unknown
A 32-year old housewife recalled that as a child living in Hull, she and a friend had observed a silver “aircraft” with no wings, tail or markings that hovered over the roofs of adjacent buildings. In the object could be seen two figures looking out through a row of portholes. One was a woman who “half smiled at her,” and the other was a man of about 20. Both appeared entirely human. The object remained motionless and was silent. The girl looked away for a moment; when she turned back the object had disappeared. Her playmate had seen it also.

A 14-year old boy, Marco P., was walking through the fields near his house. He had a kitten with him. At some point, Marco sighted a 1.8m tall disc orientated diagonally against a tree. The object had a sort of “flight of steps” and at its base were three individuals 1.85m tall. The beings greatly resembled male humans, but “of the German race”, they sported robust physiques, blond hair, and squared faces. They wore very long coats and military style pants with boots. As soon as the boy approached the scene, he felt “paralyzed” but then he regained control of his movement once the creatures stopped looking at him. Immediately thereafter, the boy witnessed a huge, 60 or 70 meter-wide disc hovering in the sky above him. Seventy or 80 smaller discs were flying around it. He also viewed 2 old biplanes, but he was unsure whether these were aware of the presence of the objects. Then three or four beings descended from the sky on a kind of “flying scooter”, they kept their hands on its “handlebars”. One of the beings appeared to be “the one in charge”; he gazed at the boy “intensely” allowing him to board one of the scooters. The scooter took off and flew towards the huge disk, which “opened and closed beneath them.” The interior of the saucer was nearly empty. There was a 2 meter wide transparent apparatus that had many flashing lights inside of it. A “mobile construction” was placed all around the perimeter of the inner part of the disc, and this produced a loud noise. About 20 beings were working at some “desks”. The boy was still paralyzed, and it is at this point that his recollection becomes even hazier. The boy descended to Earth in the scooter, and then he saw the huge disc depart the scene by assuming an inclined orientation. He heard the bells of a nearby church that it was noontime; his experience had duration of three hours.

The witness, Marie-Louise was indulging in her daily walk after having suffered a partial stroke, 3 years earlier. The day of the observation she was walking on a dirt road about 500m from her house near the small farm of La Croze. Suddenly at the edge of an alley of tall spruces and a meadow the witness saw a very shiny flattened hemispheric object. She described the object as flattened in shape, but round, and very brilliant, the color red was dominant but she could also distinguish yellow and orange, juxtaposed and spread out in strips of light. The object did not touch the ground as it seemed to rest on a kind of tripod. It was about 1m to 1.50m in height, at the level of the fir trees near the branches. The size comparable to that of a large car. The witness then saw two small beings occupied in collecting something around the meadow. Amazed, the witness did not dare to move from the dirt road, it didn’t appear that the entities had noticed her. The witness described the beings as very small, 1 m or less, with a very bulky head (perhaps a helmet?) and of a metal gray color. After a few minutes the humanoids penetrated under the UFO apparently carrying some vegetation with them. The machine rose without noise, and while trembling, to the summit of the spruces. There it very quickly took off disappearing from sight.

A couple eating supper at a local restaurant saw a strange “man” or entity sitting in the back of the restaurant. The man was sitting still with his hands on his knees, he was very tall, & his head and shoulders were higher than any other person there. He was silent & sat still staring at everyone. He wore a dark brown suit; he apparently noticed the witnesses looking at him, gout up and walked out. He wore very peculiar five toed dark brown shoes and had a very narrow heel.

A couple that had been exploring a local church wandered into a non-existent landscape when they left the churchyard. While sitting on a bench feeling uneasy for no apparent reason, the wife “saw” three figures standing behind her, and was unable to turn her head to view them directly. On a later occasion when the couple returned to Wotton, the landscape was completely different and bore no relation to what they had seen before.

Time: evening
Valentin Nikolaevich Starogortsev a physics teacher from the small town of Yamsk (Magadan region) had come to rest and cure his illnesses at one of the health centers southeast of Moscow and while he sat alone on a bench reading a book he saw a strange man about 40 years of age that approached him. The stranger immediately began to talk about scientific theories that dealt with the probability of sending wave length messages between the earth and the moon. Moments later the stranger invited Valentin to establish a wavelength connection between the Earth and the moon. He added that very few scientists, no matter their credentials are invited to the moon. But the witness reacted in a skeptical manner, not believing that settlements could be possible on the moon. But soon he saw a spacecraft land nearby and he was then taken by the alien crew to the earth’s satellite. In appearance the aliens were not different from humans and spoke perfect Russian. As was later established by other sources, physics teacher Starogortsev had made huge scientific discoveries that could had been used for evil military purposes on Earth, and this is why he was “neutralized” by the extraterrestrials. After being taken to an alien lunar base, he conducted research only in interplanetary wave communications. Amazingly, the witness the witness was chosen to teach selected humans about the alien’s lunar bases.

Mr. X was returning home on a bicycle when he saw a circle of light descend from the sky and land in a field beside the road. Two beings similar to men emerged from it, wearing helmets with antennas. The witness tried to accelerate, but felt as if pedaling “in a vacuum.” He remained “stupor struck” for some days. During these days “a peasant of Bette saw strange individuals maneuvering in the country side.”

The 13-year old witness was camping with his family and a friend when the howling of the coyotes woke him up. He then began receiving telepathic messages in his head. He rose from his bed and began waving a Coleman lantern to expose his Location Moments later a bright white disc approached the campsite, as it neared; it turned to a metallic gray craft that hovered silently above the campsite. The craft had a complex structure including a rod that stuck out at the front. Three human shaped figures looked down at the witnesses through a large porthole. The object then emitted a high-pitched whine as a panel on its bottom slid open. A tremendously bright spotlight then flooded the campsite. The witnesses felt paralyzed and it a state of confusion. Moments later the object shot away in a burst of light.

After her and several other family members had seen a large orange ball of light maneuvering over the farm, the main witness remembers waking up in her room and seeing a multi-colored light slowly spinning around her bedroom. She went to the window and saw a small gray colored humanoid with huge black oval shaped eyes, floating outside. She felt a telepathic message from the being telling her not to be afraid. Several taller white entities then entered her bedroom. Terrified she watched the beings apparently levitate her grandmother out of the room. Suddenly a sparkling shaft of light that came down from the ceiling filled the room. In the midst of the light stood a blond haired, blue eyed man like figure that took the witness’s hand telling her not to be afraid. Moments later she and her grandmother were floated outside and into a brightly lit crystal like object. Before entering the object she saw several tall white beings examining her father and numerous short thin gray beings wearing headgear running around in the yard area. Inside the object numerous organic body samples were taken from her and other tests were performed. She was eventually brought back home and was allowed to keep a green stone. (This was later supposedly taken away by the military.)

R. F., a farmer, heard something like a motorcycle coming, and a circular object about 16 ft in diameter flew over his farmyard at about 80 mph, below roof height. The front section was transparent and he could see 2 men wearing helmets & goggles, and a “stick shift” lever with a crossbar handle. It created a whirlwind underneath it. “There was no color to it.”

The witness was traveling in his vehicle along a country road when suddenly his dog became agitated and he heard a loud whistling sound. He then saw a strange object land on a nearby clearing, some type of tripod like landing gear emerged from the bottom of the object. As soon as the craft landed the whistling stopped and the dog calmed down. The witness then left his vehicle and hid behind some bushes in order to observe the object. The object was gray metallic, transparent and shaped like a teardrop with a tail at the front. The top was curved and rounded. Moments later two very tall beings wearing bluish “space suits” and dark goggles emerged from the object. They moved around apparently with some difficulty as they opened three compartments on the bottom of the object retrieving 3 metallic boxes. One of the beings walked over to a nearby cornfield and grabbed several of the young bushes putting them into one of the containers. Moments later the beings re-entered the object that took off vertically emitting a loud whistling sound.

11-year old Laili Thindu told authorities in Nairobi that he had seen strange lights coming from the direction of Mount Kenya and flying close to his village. The lights then hovered above a nearby village from where one could hear the sound of drums celebrating a marriage. The objects then projected beams of light towards the village and the drums became quiet. The next morning it was found that the whole population of the village had been incinerated, including the cattle and other animals, apparently by the beams of light from the UFOs.

Time: evening
While assign to work on a garden plot between the villages (stanitsa) of Gubskaya and Barakayevskaya in the foothills of the Northern Caucasus 8 witnesses including 3 young men ranging from 16 to 18 years of age, 3 young females and a woman had camped for the night at the edge of the forest had built a bonfire and were preparing dinner. The group carried loaded 2-barrel rifles. While the sun fell behind the horizon the three boys including the main witness (reporter) Nikolay Dmitrievich Grachyev went for a walk along the meadow and had approached a deep narrow gully near the forest. There they suddenly heard steps, unlike human steps. They quickly ran back to the camp and armed themselves with the rifles and carrying the bandolier (ammunition belt) the witnesses warned the others to stay behind and ran back to the edge of the forest where they had heard the strange footfalls. As twilight quickly fell the witness spotted a humanoid figure not far from their location coming out of the forest. The strange “man” was more than 2meters in height, and very thin. Floating just above the ground the stranger began to approach the stunned witnesses. One of the witnesses, Volodya Tkachenko who was armed, yelled at the figure to stop and out of fear pulled the trigger. As the shot rang out the floating figure seemed to pick up speed and flew close to the men and near the camp where the others had remained behind quickly vanishing into the darkness. The boys attempted to shoot their rifles again but all their efforts failed, the rifles all malfunctioned. The frightened witnesses could not eat their dinner after the encounter and the next day quickly finished their work and left the area.
