The witness reported seeing a metallic saucer shaped object land nearby. A human looking being emerged from it, picked up some pebbles, earth and grass, and took a nest from a bush. The being went back into the craft, which took off at incredible speed and vanished. A few days later the saucer landed in the middle of the airfield, its human like pilot emerged and appeared to inspect it. As several men approached the craft the man straightened up, saw them and apparently immobilized them with some unknown gas. The after watching the witnesses for a moment he walked around the saucer, climbed into a kind of “cigar” which was parked next to the saucer and took off vertically. The witnesses were again able to move. As they neared the object a short stocky hairy being, ape like in appearance with glowing eyes, ran from it and disappeared into the brush. The saucer was apparently left on the ground and was recovered by the American military.

Walking across the Eli golf course searching for mushrooms, Larry White encountered a landed UFO with two human occupants standing along side it. They were dressed in metallic colored snowsuits. They conversed with White in English with a foreign accent. They told him they learned languages by means of computerized analysis of basic sounds, “formed into a type of universal graph or code.” They would intervene and “take over” in the event of an atomic war, but would take nothing from us by conquest. They asked White if he wanted to visit their home planet; he demurred, not wishing to end up as a “human guinea pig in a laboratory.” The object was round and saucer shaped, with a glass like tube or ring around the perimeter, through which moved an expanding and contracting coil. The object “was powered by an electro magnetic turbine which takes its power from the elements around it.” The beings took some ground samples and then departed. Next day, White saw police officers examining a ring of burnt soil four feet wide and 14 feet in diameter at the site. The local newspaper reportedly carried a story on the traces, although the witness did not divulge his contact until 20 years later.

A Mrs. Creswell, together with her mother, observed an object moving slowly over the rooftops in the back of their house. Moving with a slight roll, it was shaped like two deep saucers rim-to-rim and displayed three-square windows around the central edge facing the women. In the whitish glow form within, they saw a slim humanoid figure, 5 to 6’ tall, dressed in a black one-piece suit. Framed in the window to their right, the lower half of this figure’s body was not visible; his hands seemed to be resting in front of him on what may have been controls. He wore a balaclava like headpiece and stared from the window at the women with “eyes that seemed to penetrate.”

Mrs. E. and her two young children had decided to go for a short walk in the direction of a small brook in a forested area. The walk usually lasted for an hour but on this date they came back 3 hours later and were met by a worried husband. However they had no further recollection of what had transpired. Years later their memory returned and on that afternoon they remembered seeing a large dark object on the ground next to the river. Thinking that it was a helicopter in trouble the group approached when they noticed standing near the machine a group of 4 to 5 small beings, about 1.10 to 1.50m in height, which seemed to be discussing something between them. At this point the witnesses realized that the beings were not human. At this point their memory becomes hazy and can only recall that a slightly taller humanoid seems to be directing the smaller beings. A group of the small creatures approach the witnesses from the woods walking in Indian file. At this point what appears to be a gray sphere falls from the sky and lands next to the witnesses, incredibly the sphere resembles a “round smooth head, covered with a cap, with very deep eyes without pupils” and appears to float without a visible body supporting it. The period following becomes increasingly confusing. Finally the family remembers seeing the creatures entering the landed object one by one. The “floating head” nonchalantly supported itself by the opened door while the beings re-entered the object one by one. Before entering the object the last humanoid made a warning hand gesture to the witnesses, which suddenly felt a strong gust of hot air, which obliged them to close their eyes and lower their heads. The craft had now disappeared. The witnesses further describe the beings as having large heads, long arms, wearing gray combination suits with caps.

The witness was on his bicycle exploring the river edge when suddenly he heard a man calling him, who stood by a thicket close to him. At first he ignored the man but he called for him again. He stopped and asked him want he wanted. He did not answer, but beckoned for him to approach. With hesitation he advanced towards the man and at this point noticed what he was wearing. He wore a brown aviator suit, boots and in his hand held something resembling a gas mask. He beckoned the witness to follow him to a nearby field. Astonished but curious, he followed him with a certain apprehension. As he arrived at the field he saw what appeared to be a disc-shaped craft on the ground. Frozen with fright he wanted to flee, but his legs did not obey him and he stayed there, stunned as if in a dream. The man standing next to smiled at him with a mocking face. He described the object as a translucent disc, about ten meters in diameter by two meters in height approximately. It was surmounted by a kind of transparent cupola. A door opened on the smooth surface making the interior of the machine visible. On the inside walls there well all sorts of bizarre apparatuses. In the center there was a circular table covered with levels buttons and lit with green lights. The machine rested on three retractable legs. At this point he noticed on the hull odd sings painted in black, which did not correspond to any letter or languages or dialects on earth. Amazed he looked at the man who was still there smiling at him. At this point he spoke to the witness in French, with a strange accent. He told him not to be frightened, that he wasn’t going to harm him. He then told the witness that he was from another world. He then added, ‘Do not be astonished that I speak your language, our civilization, is much more advanced than yours. We know all about the wars that plague your planet (and the ones to come) and is for this reason that for some time our aircraft have been flying over your world”. He then continued, “Your nuclear weapons tests worry us. We fear for the peace of the solar system of which your Earth if part of. If another World War would start we would intervene. Any attempt of destruction would be stopped and annihilated by means unknown by your science. We hope that we will never have to intervene.” The strange briefing finished with these words. The extraterrestrial then walked toward his saucer at the same time putting on the helmet that he was carrying. He saluted the witness with his hand and then entered the object. The door slid close without a sound and suddenly a pale yellow light illuminated the saucer. A sort of whistling escaped from openings located all around the saucer. It then rose gently vertically like a helicopter ten meters from the ground. The landing gear disappeared, it then moved slowly gaining altitude and reaching a vertiginous speed it disappeared from sight.

10-year old Eliane Berteaux had just led the cows to pasture and was returning in her moped when she saw some meters to her left what appeared to be a metallic tent. While she approached she saw a trap door being raised to the top of the object, which was really an object resembling a large egg. It rested on the ground on a rectangular base. The trap door measured about 1 m in height and 60 cm in width. A small humanoid then appeared. It jumped to the ground. On his head he wore a large square helmet. It had very piercing eyes and arms that hung on its sides. It wore a russet red color outfit. The humanoid moved towards the witness and this one ran away in fear. In the same area, Antoine Barrois, 70 years of age saw a red luminous object rise from the ground. .

Three unidentified people were returning to Brueillet when near Taupignac, they observed a red luminous object hovering over a nearby wood. They stopped the car and got out, observing a round device about 6 meters in diameter, hovering motionless about 10 or 12 meters above the ground. After a few seconds it moved off horizontally, and then descended into a small wooded area. Taking with them flashlights, two of the riders entered the woods; in a clearing they discovered the object, around which four little beings of one-meter height were busying themselves. As the two witnesses approached, the beings quickly entered the object, which emitted blue, then orange, and then red lights, dazzling them. It ascended quickly without any noise.

An unidentified woman, riding a bicycle from Bordeaux to Royan, saw in a field at Cozes an object shaped like a turtle, surmounted by a cupola. It emitted first an orange light, then green, dimming and brightening alternately. Two human forms appeared nearby, one of which carried a shaft or rod and seemed to be looking for something. A violet light from the object illuminated the beings and the woman was able to make out two small human like faces behind the faceplates in their helmets. But instead of noses, she could see only two small holes just above the mouth; and instead of the two usual eyes, she saw a single eye in the middle of the forehead. Letting out a scream, the object (and the two beings, presumably) disappeared emitting a slight hum.

Suddenly Dewilde saw a disc-shaped object on the ground on some nearby railroad tracks, about 50 meters away. Walking cautiously towards the craft Dewilde noticed a rectangular shaped aperture at the base of the cupola and a row of windows. Several humanoids stood around the object. One of them, who appeared to be the leader, approached Dewilde and his son, while they stood several meters from the craft. The humanoid (leader) was about 1.20m in height, and wore a helmet equipped with a transparent faceplate. His facial features were Asiatic. He had a protruding chin and pointed cheeks, the hair was jet-black in color its eyes were brown and its skin was bronzed. In a friendly gesture the humanoid caressed Dewilde’s son, whom Dewilde was carrying in his arms, the humanoid then tapped Dewilde on his back several times, smiling as he did and then pronounced several unintelligible words. Immediately afterwards the humanoid grabbed a chicken, which he gave to one of the other humanoids. The humanoid again caressed Dewilde’s son and slapped Dewilde’s back and then climbed onboard the object. A metallic panel closed the door and the object took off vertically and disappearing towards the east.

Yvonne S, on her way to work on foot, saw a luminous white sphere descend from the sky and hover over her pathway on a hillside, about 70 meters ahead and 50 meters above the ground. She could see inside, as though the walls were transparent, two human forms like men dressed in one piece suits, one larger than the other. The object shot off at great speed, and then returned to the same spot; it did this once more, at which time Yvonne was only 50 meters distant, then sped away for good. When she passed by the spot over which the object had hovered, she was greatly frightened. She arrived at work in a highly agitated state. 48 hours later she was required to see a physician, who prescribed a sedative for her. A few days later, the woman’s toenails had begun to dry and harden, and subsequently fell off. Those on her left foot were particularly affected. The malady, which remained a mystery to doctors, persisted for the next 20 years.

A group of young boys, including one name Bastian, had been playing in a field and were now returning home. Bastian had briefly stopped to tie his shoelaces when he heard the others yelling in apparent fright. Looking up he saw a few hundred meters in the sky, above the fir trees, a very large round object, hovering motionless, or oscillating slightly over their heads. Initially immobilized by fear the boys now run and hide behind a coppice of young oaks, in which they hide lying on the ground. There was a strange quiet in the area, even the birds were silent. Slowly the object began to descend until it remained about 1 meter above the ground. The object was silvery in color, smooth, with several small windows around its circumference. On top it had what appeared to be a glass-like cupola. Suddenly three small humanoids appeared outside the object, no one sees them coming out of it. They resembled Dwarfin (Dwarfs) and are about 1.20 m in height, wearing gray-green combination diver suits, topped with a huge round helmet with an opaque glass visor, which obscured their faces. As night fell one of the boys attempted to get up and flee but was suddenly struck down by an unseen force, making his legs tremble. Surprised, the humanoids look in their direction and boarded the object, which then began to oscillate. The object turns red in color and disappears in plain sight.

Marie stated later that their height was from 1m to 1.20m and that their body was entirely covered with russet-red hair except for their heads, which bore a kind of nose resembling that of a pig. The humanoids moved one behind the other and all five made three turns around Marie who in a state of shock began to shout. Soon the humanoids moved towards the beam of light where they had appeared in the beginning and disappear therein, the beam also disappeared and Marie heard a high-pitched whistling sound coming from it. At the same time that this whistle was heard, a bottle that Marie held in her hand broke in two on the level of its neck, it was later noted that the cut was clean and even as if made by a saw. Marie’s husband, during this time, was shopping at the grocer’s just some 30 meters form the location, and when he heard his wife shouting, he ran towards their home but could not see anything else only his wife partially fainted on the floor and in shock. Immediately she was taken to a local hospital where Marie suffered a miscarriage. She had been pregnant for 2 months. Soon after the incident Marie developed a cardiac disease.

A woman Ermelinda Lanzillo emerged from her home to attend to some animals including hens, rabbits, and pigs, just 10-15 meters from her building. It was a rainy night, even though the moon was at times visible through the clouds. When Lanzillo had not returned after 15 minutes, her nephew went out to look for her. He called her name aloud a few times, but got no response. Thereafter, when the nephew reached a point next to the gate leading to the garden of the home, he suddenly discovered his aunt before him. She did not stop and continued toward the house, beckoning to her 26-year old nephew to get back inside and quickly lock the door. Once inside the house, Lanzillo told his nephew, named, Oscar, as well as two other nephews that she had observed 2 or 3 figures next to the hog pen. The figures were about 1.7m in height and sturdy in stature. They wore some strange metallic outfits (blue green in color and somewhat shiny according to a sketch made by the investigators from the nephew Oscar’s recollections), as well as diver-like helmets. Over their shoulders, there appeared a “halo.” Oscar asked his aunt why she hadn’t replied when he called out to her, she told him that she had heard him but had been unable to answer. Mrs. Lanzillo and her nephew Oscar re-emerged from the house all in all about 10 minutes later, however they did not discover anything odd.

While in a field belonging to his father, a young man heard a rustling noise and observed a saucer-shaped object landing not far from him. He approached it and saw a human-like figure exiting the object, from an opening in the object’s upper part. The individual was dressed in a sort of diving suit, and emitted greenish-bronze beams of light which illuminated the surrounding landscape. A dog, about 100 meters distance from the young man, began to bark. Possibly as a result of this, the creature re-entered the object and it departed thereafter.

Near Stafford, Mrs. Jessie Roestenburg heard a noise like an aircraft and she ran out into the garden. There she found her two children lying prostrate and terrified. Above the children was a huge saucer-like object with a dome, the front par of which was transparent stated Mrs. Roestenburg. Staring at the children from the machine were two unsmiling human-like creatures, with long faces and long hair. Jessie then ran to the back of the house in fright. The object then moved over the house, hovered there for about 15 seconds and then shot off at high speed. The men inside the object had white skin, long hair to their shoulders, and very high foreheads. They wore turquoise blue clothing, resembling ski suits. The object hovered at a tilted angle while the two occupants looked at the scene “sternly, not in an unkind fashion, but almost sadly, compassionately.” After about 15 seconds during which these men gazed at her, the craft ascended at 45-degree angle, with a blinking violet light in front. Leaving a contrail, it circled the house, and then streaked out of sight.

Carmelo Papotto saw an egg shaped craft about 18 ft long land a few dozen yards away. The upper half was transparent and very brightly lit the lower metallic; there were 2 cylindrical protruding tubes, and a Y-shaped wheeled undercarriage. Inside were 6 men in yellow coveralls wearing gas masks; when one took his mask off temporarily, his face was normally human. One also wore earphones; all confronted instrument panels. When Papotto touched the machine an electric shock threw him to the ground, and an occupant gestured him away. After about 20 minutes, the machine took off silently; when 150 ft up, it departed at dizzying speed. Tracks of the wheels were found.

He approached the area thinking it was another car when he saw a tall blond haired man standing immobile in the field. Thinking that the figure was an extraterrestrial (he thought a Venusian?) he drove away from the area in order to obtain additional witnesses. (Later the harassed owner of the field claimed that the mysterious blond figure was a Polish farmer). This however was never confirmed.

Summary: A farm-worker, Ulderico Cardinali, was walking along a pathway in a meadow. Suddenly he heard a buzzing noise and he started to pass through an area of fog. Shortly afterwards, when the fog became less dense, Cardinali observed a strange object which he thought to be a downed plane. It resembled a sort of highly polished, 2 meter wide “plate” landed on the ground. There was a very peculiar creature beside the craft. It appeared to be no taller than 1.40m and was dressed in a yellowish-brown uniform. It seemed like the creature was moving about the object with some task. Once it had stopped moving about, the creature went inside the object, entering a sort of “cabin” and disappearing from sight. Then the object departed from the location—emitting a slight buzzing noise and flying at very low altitude, nearly brushing the tops of the meadow trees.

Summary: A shepherd guarding his flock at a peak called “Moumboa” located at about 800meters altitude reported seeing two “men” standing on the side opposite to him, looking around. At first he thought they were excursionists but he soon saw between them at about 50meters a craft shaped like a large shell, from three to four meters in diameter and of a little more than one meter in height. He did not dare to approach the object which was brown in color. In its center there was a cabin, and at the two ends he could distinguish a number of small propellers similar to pine cones. At the back end, the broadest end was a bent tripod. After a while, the two men approached the machine which they then placed upright on the tripod. The witness supposed that the machine was made out of some very light weight material or plastic. He says he did not notice any portholes. One of the men then opened a narrow door and both individuals disappeared into the cabin. Without any noise the two groups of propellers started to turn, but in opposite directions. The machine took off vertically at about 100 meters and then disappeared quickly towards the north. The two men were similar to humans, Caucasian, between 1.70-1.75m in height.

Two 18-year old farm workers, Jean Cheradame & Rene Marais, encountered a bright light source on a field. As they approached the light, two featureless illuminated human forms emerged from the light source. They lacked both arms & legs, and essentially resembled “white plastic bags” lit from within. They emerged from the light source in the field and separated into two distinct forms as they approached; when they receded they again merged into one form before merging with the light source. They were about five feet tall.

Mr. Guidola, bicycling home, saw a very luminous object in a field behind the sports field. When he approached, he was met by “2 little shadows, which made strange guttural sounds.” He fled, but returned with 22 others from a nearby café. The beings wore “white trousers, tapering as if they covered only a single leg, with very wide girdles of dark color. The thorax was confined in an iron gray metallic garment, and on the head was a transparent helmet; the intense light from the disc made it possible to see a dark colored countenance, with a proboscis resembling a little elephant.” The witnesses threw stones at the entities and at their craft, whose upper portion was a transparent dome illuminated by a white light so strong as to hurt the eyes. Surmounting this dome was a silvery “antenna” 8” thick and 5 ft high. Stones striking the craft gave no metallic sound. One man tried to sic his boxer on the “Martians,” but, terrified, it bit another of the witnesses instead. A few moments later, with a piercing sound like a steamboat’s whistle, the spaceship rose vertically.
