Date: January 1955
Location: Giant Rock California
Time: unknown
Summary: Kelvin Rowe reportedly encountered “The Lady of Pluto” that was accompanied by a “Space Brother.” Rowe as “mettlesome and lovely” described the female alien. She stood 5-feet three inches tall, wore a blouse, jacket and slacks “in contrasting tones of a beautiful, pansy blue similar to royal blues, and a shade of red-wine in a scintillating, deep intensity.” He was told that she was the earthly equivalent of a captain on a spacecraft. Rowe supposedly met her again soon after this encounter.

Date:  January 1 1955
Location: Camaqua, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Time: 0005A
Summary: 5 witnesses, Joao Rodel, (owner of a factory called Importadora Auto-Globo) his wife, his 2 children and an employee were fishing at a local lagoon when suddenly a disc-shaped object about 30 meters in diameter descended and hovered at about 200 meters in altitude. The disc then descends to about a meter from the ground. It brightly illuminates its surroundings and the grass seems agitated under it. A figure is then seen within the light on the cupola, is about 1.80m in height. The light then disappears and only a cylindrical shaped light remains about 80m in height and 50cm in diameter. Soon the humanoid appears again. He is carrying some kind of flashlight and seems to look down at the ground, apparently looking at the water on both sides of the UFO. He then re-enters the UFO through the vertical beam of light. Soon after, the disc emits an oblique beam of light towards the sky and then a small sphere (1.50m in diameter) exits the disc and hovers over the water. A few minutes later a second sphere goes out. These two spheres then approached the witnesses who become frightened and leave the area.

Date:  Jan. 28, 1955
Location: Fairbanks, Alaska
Time: Midnight
Summary: The man reporting said he was in­volved in an ‘occurrence’ while a member of the Air Defense Command stationed at Fairbanks, Alaska. He and his pilot were on number one alert, when the scramble bell sounded at 12:01. GCI radar had an unknown track with a heading of 135 degrees. The target, at first report was travelling at 2,800 knots; in the space of some ten minutes the targets’ speed had been recomputed as 3,200, 3,600, and finally 4,800 knots. The target crossed their interception track while still out of range of the airborne radar and out of sight visually. Another pilot who was in the air at the time told him that he saw a ‘blood red’ glow in the sky in that part where the unknown should have been. This object was above 30,000 feet altitude, climbing at that altitude and they were still climbing when they gave up the chase.

Date:  Jan. 29, 1955
Location: Winterset near Des Moines, Iowa                        BBU
Time: 9:07 p.m. (CST). 
Summary: Iowa Air National Guard pilots, Major A. Packer and Lt. D. Myers with 132nd Fighter Bomber Group flying a T-33A jet (s/n 52-9590) heading 30° at 290 knots (330 mph) saw a white light flashing at a set rate, no trail, on a direct head on collision course in level flight at 20,000 ft. At the last instant the object rose and flew over the jet, climbing rapidly to 35,000 ft. When the pilot tried to chase the object it out climbed and out turned him, seemingly using radar or similar means to track the T-33A so as to employ highly maneuverable tactics at “excess” speed and altitude.
