Seeing a fire like glow in the woods, James F Roddy approached by car within a few hundred feet by using back roads; “It was off in a clearing, glowing like a batch of 200 watt bulbs.” The he heard heavy footsteps running, and “somebody walloped the back of my car—it seemed as if he had put his hands on the rear end and vaulted all the way over. It had to be a very heavy person to rock my car that way.” The then footsteps ran on toward the shining object. Scared, Roddy quickly drove back to the main road, where he saw a bluish-green light that rose jerkily from the woods, then glowed bluish white & moved away at high speed.

5-year old Tom Bricken remembers playing in the kitchen of his house with his toy soldiers when he heard the back door slam. He assumed that it was one of his family members and heard someone walk into the kitchen. Soon he felt someone staring at him and when he turned around he saw what he could only describe as a robot or a “machine-man” figure. His next memory was of being taken from the kitchen and put in a sleep-like state. Several short aliens with large hairless heads, completely black eyes, no white in them then carried him, but later upon looking at them closely he was able to see a pupil. It was later communicated to him that they had evolved in such manner because they hailed from a planet with two suns. They also had small ears; small mouths, and wore dark blue overall uniforms with silvery boots. He was carried outside across the driveway where he noticed the shadow of the neighbor’s house on his house and then taken to the backyard where he saw a hovering craft. A pole of some sort came from the dome of the craft and was making contact with the power lines of the neighbor’s house. He thought that they were somehow “borrowing” electricity. Suddenly a tripod-landing gear appeared and the craft landed. He noticed that the landing gear formed a perfect triangle. He was then taken onboard and examined and then taken to a sort of waiting room where he met a different alien, almost human-like with round black eyes, an environmental suit with a transparent helmet, what appeared to be a breathing apparatus, an antenna-like protrusion on the right side of the helmet and some type of equipment strapped on the chest area with red straps. In that room he saw another person, which he thought could had been his sister being examined. Soon he was brought to the control room where the commander, one of the short hairless humanoids, but wearing a light gold or peach suit transmitted some type of report into a console of what had transpired. Soon he was brought back into the house where he seemed to snap out of a trance-like state standing in the kitchen and staring at the wall. He further described the inside of the object as having curved walls, dimly lit with black lighting, a room that resembled a doctor’s office, he also recalled seeing what appeared to have been an oscilloscope in the control room. The next day the neighbor found strange markings on the ground in the backyard.

Several laborers were returning to their ranch on horseback and as they neared a cross roads near Huaca Mountain noticed a strange figure moving rapidly among the nearby brush, the figure was moving as fast as a horse but the terrified witnesses noticed that it was clearly not a horse. The figure jumped a barbwire fence about 100meters from the witnesses and at this point the witnesses were able to see it in more detail. They described it as about 1.50m in height, long goat-like legs, on its head it had two horn-like protrusions, and its face was covered with thick beard. One of the men suffered a nervous shock and fell from his horse. The bizarre satyr-like creature was quickly lost from sight among the brush.

The witness, his wife and two friends were all sitting in their car outside an inn near Cheltenham, when an object appeared over treetops about half a mile away. It traveled towards them, then, making a near right-angled turn, vanished behind trees. The sharply-defined appearance of the object did not change as it turned, and this resembled a row of lighted shop windows through which outlines of “objects” could be seen. From each end of the UFO blue green rays were visible and a noise was heard described as a mixture of electric motor and landing jet. Its speed was estimated as fairly fast—about that of an airliner at touchdown. The total length of the observation was about 15 minutes.

Mme De Jean, 60, went to close her bedroom window and saw in a meadow across the road “2 objects resembling egg shells, with multicolored lights of great beauty, and beside these objects two beings of very small stature (3 ft tall) with baldheads.” She called her husband to look; he took his gun and went to notify the nearest neighbors, but when his dog began to bark the objects rapidly flew off, and the neighbors saw only two large reddish “stars.” At the site were found two rings, 6 to 10 ft in diameter and 10 ft apart, of elongated drops of metal “resembling melted aluminum,” the size of the fingernail of the little finger. After the next rain, grass grew everywhere except inside these circles.

Dan Martin was driving north of town and had just passed the Nueces River when he suddenly felt his legs and arms become numb. He quickly pulled off to the side of the road, fearing he was having a heart attack. As son as he stopped the car he heard a noise from behind the vehicle. He then saw a cigar shaped object come from behind his car and stop across the road from him. It was hovering 8 feet above the ground. At this point Martin felt compelled to get out of his car and walk across the road. As he came around the rear end of the object he encountered a medium size humanoid female wearing a tight fitting silvery outfit. He apparently had a brief conversation with the woman and then got back into his car. He then watched the object take off at a very sharp angle, easily clearing the nearby treetops. The object was silent and it a matter of seconds it was gone.

Ernest Suddards, a lorry driver, and his 13-year old son were driving home when their headlights illuminated a strange being in the street and moving toward them. 4 ft tall, it was dressed in a skintight black garment covering even the head, with a shiny perforated disc on the chest. It was moving forward by jumping, the feet remaining together; then it turned up a passageway and was lost to view. Around the same time a silvery bullet shaped craft had been seen low over the area.

Mrs. Darwin Johnson was swimming with her friend Mrs. Chris Lamble in the Ohio River about fifteen feet from shore when suddenly something grabbed her from under the surface. It felt like the “hand” had huge claws and “furry” palms. It came up from behind her, grabbed her left leg, gripped her knee and pulled her under. She kicked and fought herself free. It pulled her under again. Although both women could not see the thing, they were screaming and yelling to scare it away. Finally, Mrs. Johnson lunged for Mrs. Lamble’s inner tube, and the loud “thump” apparently scared it away, as if released its grip. Back on shore Mrs. Johnson received treatment for her scratches and marks on her legs. According to Fortean investigator Terry Colvin Mrs. Johnson had a palm-print shaped green stain below her knee that could not be removed for several days. Interestingly Colvin learned that an individual who identified himself as an Air Force colonel visited the Johnson couple. He took voluminous notes and warned them not to talk further about the incident.

A group of children was playing in the garden of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas when they observed a hovering object which disappeared and reappeared as a spinning disk with curved lines radiating from it. Other objects, silvery and semi-transparent, soon appeared and were seen by all children. They made musical sounds as they vanished and reappeared. One of them landed, and a creature the size of a 4-year-old child, transparent, wearing a belt with a bright disk, was seen nearby. Another creature appeared and spoke to one of the boys. All the children experienced visions of the object and the creatures, as well as “arms” which appeared to beckon to them.

Summary: Aug. 25, 1955; Fordland, Missouri (BBU)
7:56 p.m. (CST) (26/0156Z) A blip appeared on a ground radar scope moving at about 1000 mph. After a few minutes the target began to slow down perceptibly to around 320 mph. A fighter plane, “Dropkick 17” was scrambled and was directed toward the target. When the fighter approached to within 5 miles of the target it faded. The target then popped up dead ahead 20 miles away. As the fighter DK 17 approached to 1/2 mile of target it faded away. From then on it was like a game, the target would pop up about 20 miles away and when the fighter would head toward it the target would fade away. This happened 10 to 15 times until DK 17 reported he was low on fuel. When DK 17 was about 50 miles away the UFOB began painting like a B-52 and was not moving. Radar personnel at the Fordland AFS were: 1st Lt.John N. Oliver, Director; A/2C J.L.Bossom, Radar operator; A/2C Issac N. Young, Radar operator. (Dan Wilson, Brad Sparks, footnotes.com, BB files).

8 or 9 children 4 to 15 years old saw “semi transparent” round objects of various colors in the sky; they kept appearing & disappearing with musical “pings.” Adults called to look saw nothing. One object, “as large as 3 houses,” came down to hover 3 feet from the ground. Beside it appeared a transparent being 3.5 ft tall, with red eyes & mouth, and a brilliant disc on its belt. Other objects also landed, one on a housetop. One boy started walking toward one of the vessels and was forcibly restrained; another saw a beckoning arm in mid-air. A creature with four arms appeared, and told 2 boys to climb a tree to be “picked up;” they did so, and a UFO approached with little men riding on its rim. One boy climbed down after a garden hose was turned on him; the other “slid” onto a nearby roof and then walked off it, landing on his head, unhurt, but amnesiac.

David Ankenbrandt was driving home when he saw a bright yellow light descend from the sky; walking to the place it had landed, he found “some kind of aircraft, 50 ft in diameter, with a dome on top.” A beam of green lights paralyzed him, then a man over 6 ft tall, clad in something like a ski suit, emerged and commanded him, in a high pitched voice, to inform the federal government that there must be no more wars. After the pilot re-entered, the paralysis ceased. 48 hours later, Ankenbrandt returned to the spot, and was met by the same UFO pilot, who reiterated his instructions.

Josef Wanderka was riding his motorcycle through a wooded area, when he encountered a metallic disc with a door and ramp on the ground on a clearing. The witness felt an impulse to ride into the craft. Inside he found himself in a room lit by a soft uniform light. He also encountered five to six beings. These beings were human like with beautiful child like faces, fair medium hair, and with no visible sex difference. They wore dull gray loose, seamless one-piece overalls and mittens. The beings communicated with the witness in perfect German and seemed concerned about the conditions on earth. They also mentioned that they were from the constellation known as Cassiopeia.
