Three lumberjacks were out in a wooded area busy cutting trees when they suddenly heard a loud crashing sound. They then saw a cigar shaped craft flying very low between the trees, this object then apparently crashed into a clearing next to a river. There was no sound only a gigantic flash of light in the vicinity. Seconds later came a vacuum type wave that made all the witnesses tumble forward. Everything then seemed eerily silent. All three men went to the crash site but found no debris or fire. But close by they found a small man that was surrounded by a white light, he was apparently injured. One of the men touched the being and received an electrical shock. The small man then opened his eyes and spoke to the men, telling them that he was dying and to be calm. He was described as very well built with broad shoulders and normal features; he had yellowish skin with very light hair, small hands with slender fingers. He wore a reddish metallic uniform, which was skintight; he also wore a broad silvery belt with a very large buckle, which shone slightly in a light blue shade. In the center it had the initials “U V.” He spoke for two hours before he died. He was put into a bag that smelled like sulfur, the bag had been provided by the humanoid, and thrown into the river where he apparently disintegrated.

Carlos Flannigan, driving a truck over a bridge, noticed a terrible smell, and saw 4 “more or less human looking” figures 3 ft tall “moving about oddly” on the river bank beneath the bridge. He claimed they had wrinkles on their heads instead of hair.  He said one was holding a wand-like spark-emitting device. He reported it to the local police headquarters.

Mrs Emily Magnone and her husband, awakened by their dog’s barking, smelt a strong odor “like swamp.” Their next-door neighbor went out to investigate & saw, 15 ft away, a 3-foot little man “entirely covered with twigs or foliage.” Whenever she turned on the porch light the little man disappeared, but would reappear in the same place when it was turned off.

The main witness, John and a friend Barry Brock both teenagers at the time were reclining on the lawn discussing the infinity of space and the stars when, without warning they were “sucked” up by some type of powerful energy into a room or enclosure that had a huge window through which they were looking at what appeared to be a dense star cluster. John’s intuition led him to believe that they were at a great distance from the planet Earth and that frightened him. His next recollection was commenting to his friend how bright and clear the stars were and Barry agreeing. His next recollection was of Barry screaming and a strong energy pulling them through space back to the place on the lawn where they had originally been. They were both now in a standing position and simultaneously both screamed and ran into the center of the street. Barry grabbed the sides of his head with his hands and began to jump and down screaming that he had lost his mind. The witness only had brief recollections of the event years later but at one point was able to recall seeing a very tall being with large black wraparound eyes walking slowly up to him and his friend Barry screaming nearby.

A ft’w months ago, a friend, Dr. Anti (physician-surgeon) was visiting Azevedo, and the subject of UAO came up during thc course of the conversation. Azevedo brought out the slide and showed it to Dr. Anti who immediately asked permission 1o show the picture to his friend, Dr. Olavo D. Fontes. In due course, Fontes had thtl picture examined by Ed Keffel (well known photographer of the magazine O’Cruceiro who photographed a UAO in 1952). also Commander Bacellar, who is former chief of the Brazilian Navy’s Meteorological Station at Trinidade Island and one of the NavY’s toP exPerts on UAO. Other photographic experts also examined the slide. Visual examination on a special slide projector and microscopic studies as wcll as granulation tests and measurements of the image’s brightness were perfol’med and rechecked several times. The results confirmed the authenticity of thc color transparency and that possibility’ of a falsification or photographie trick was definitely excluded. During the course of his thorough investigation, Dr. Fontes also interviewed the witnesses of the sighting. The full report, including estimates as to size and distance based on measurements of landmarks in the picture, will be offered as oDe of the special reports from this office in the near future. We consider this lo be one of the most important photos of r UAO ever taken.

Mrs Margaret Symmonds, 52, was driving at 0330A when her headlights picked up 4 figures huddled in the middle of the road. As she approached, she saw that they were 4 humanoid beings less than 4 ft tall, with very large heads & short legs, wearing slouch hats & grayish capes. One had something like a stick & seemed as if digging in the road. Only then one closest to her looked at her as she drove by, swerving to avoid them; he held his claw-like hands over his head. She saw that he had enormous “saucer like” eyes with no visible pupils, who reflected a reddish light, and a long hooked nose like a carrot. The skin was dark and rough looking. She screamed and woke up her husband.

3:00-3:56 a.m. (AST). At 3:00 a.m., USAF 97th Air Refueling Sq pilot Lt. Homer H. Speer and copilot Lt Paul Daily of KC-97 call sign Archie 29, and pilot Lt. Robert W. Schneck and copilot Lt. David Cueldner (sp?) of KC-97 Archie 91, both planes at 20,000 ft on a refueling mission out of Harmon AFB (48°32.7’N, 58°33.0’W), saw 2 bright objects at 49°10′ N, 59°50′ W, at 20,000 ft appearing stationary. They reported sighting to Harmon at 3:05, made contact with radar site, 2nd Lt. Charles H. Denney, Senior Director, USAF ADC site N-23 (Air Defense Direction Center, 640th AC&W Sq, Harmon AFB, Stephenville, Newf., CPS-6B search and height-finder radar, TPS-502 backup height-finder, at 48°35.3′ N, 58°40′ W). Radar painted object at 3:07 with intermittent contact till 3:56 (also 4-5 additional objects). Archie 29 KC-97 in best position to close on object ordered to do so by Harmon, position 290° from radar site at about 80 miles, 10 o’clock to KC-97 [inconsistent with lat-long coords]. Objects started moving to NE at 50° true heading accelerating to 275 knots (300 mph) faster than Archie 29 KC-97. After object reversed course to S heading, pilot Lt. Speer of Archie 29 reached closest approach to 18 miles distance, maintained visual contact with object calling direction changes of object to radar site by radio, changes correlated exactly with those painted on scope by controller. Brief height-finder radar contact at 35,000 ft. Object began climbing at 3:38 a.m. and fighters scrambled, no radar or visual contact made. Speer lost sight of object at about 40,000-50,000 ft. Radar then tracked object accelerating to 1,600 knots (1,800 mph) moving off to NE. At same times radar also painted 5 smaller objects at 5,000-10,000 ft (briefly detected on height-finder) and thus below the KC-97’s at 30° true [heading??], 60 miles from radar, [inconsistent with other coords] moving very fast, changing direction and azimuth, jumping on and off scopes, forming circular pattern, changing to line abreast, traveling 10-20 miles then changing direction, speed 1,500+ knots (1,700+ mph). Radar tracked about 4 objects at point of initial sighting on 40° true heading, speed 300 knots (350 mph). Objects at 3:40 a.m. at 50°10′ N, 57°50′ [?] W. One C-119 aircraft en route from Goose Bay passed within 5 miles of the objects, not known if seen. Radar targets confirmed by 1st Lt. Anthony G. Scarpace (sp?), Ground Electronics Officer of 670th ACW Sq, who found radar operating properly and no inversion effects present. Investigated by NEAC AFSSO (AF Special Security Office), reported to AFSS (NSA subunit not to be confused with AFSSO compartmented security agency), NSA and CIA.

Location: Kolomenskoye, south of Moscow, Russia
Date: July 10 1955
Time: unknown
A local district militia officer, P. N. Karpov was on patrol when he suddenly encountered a huge 2.5m to 3 meter tall hairy humanoid near the banks of the River Moskva. The frightened policeman grabbed his gun and opened fire on the hairy giant. But the gigantic hairy figure escaped inside the bushes and disappeared into thin air. The militiaman then inspected the bushes but did not find any trace of the entity. After 1955 the village of Kolomenskoye became part of the growing metropolis of Moscow and its fruit gardens and wooded area substantially decreased. Other reports indicated that the hairy giant entities have been in the area for hundreds of years, reportedly able to slip in into our reality from other dimensions.

The object was observed for 20-30 minutes. Charles P. Chitwood, control tower operator gave this description of the object. The object was in the northern sky at a 340 degree heading. The object moved on a heading of 240 degrees for 7 minutes, then suddenly reversed its course and sped away at an 80 degree heading. The object then reversed its course again and disappeared on a measured course of 277 degrees. At 9:06 p.m. (12/0506Z), the AC&W Squadron at Boron, Calif., had an object on their scopes.

Location: Yokota A.F.B.
Time: 19:00
Summary:  Light 2hrs Missing time At the age of 13, my Dad was station at Yokota AFB outside Tokyo, a group of us kids went camping in the foot hills along a river (Tanagakawa) which led to Tachikawa. After eat one night Kenny (Major son) and I went out to a picnic bench which looked over the river. It was a moonless night and the stars were bright. I was lying on the table top and Kenny was lying on the seat to the left of me. We laid there looking at the stars talking. My eye caught a star moving in a zigzag pattern across the sky..being raised in the Air Force and my Dad a pilot, I knew aircraft very well and this was no ordinary flight pattern at that elevation and it was no helicopter. So I got up on my elbows and in a loud voice to Kenny “Look at.. As the light was coming at us at a great speed..It got so bright that today I think I felt the heat..This is the last thing I remembered.. Until we were standing at the end of the table and both of us said nothing. Return to camp and Jack and two other guys with us, asked where we had been. We simple answered, “up at the bench”..Only thing I can remember them saying was that they were just up there 15 minutes ago and did we go in town..Kenny and I went straight to sleep..the next morning no one could wake us until 8:00 we both got up..There was nothing said about last nite except they asked us if we went to town..I didn’t understand why they would ask this nor Kenny..we hadn’t gone anywhere..WE let it drop.. Kenny and I remained friends for a year after that incident…Years later I realized that Kenny and I never dicussed that night..Now that was unusual for two Air Force brats seeing something come out of the sky and not saying a thing to each other or our parents.. In the later eighties I was on the road in Ohio and heard a talk show host talking to someone about abduction and sure fit the experience that I went thru..I dismissed it at the time. Months later I told my wife ((name deleted))..about what I heard a on the radio and told her of the event in Japan..She is a well educate dutch girl..in bio-genetics we met in Calfornia..We had been marrried 14 years at that time..She said she had something to tell me. While we sleeping in our bedroom in California she was awaken by the present of being which describe to a TEE the greys..which is famous now..she was told to go back to sleep and no harm will come. This shook me..not only had she not told me, but what the hell was going on..

Time: dusk
A man had taken his dog out for a walk through some fields when he suddenly began to feel uneasy, “as if being watched.” The hairs of his dog were standing straight up. He looked up and saw a very large hovering cigar shaped object with large rounded windows, almost directly overhead. The windows were brightly lit and he was able to see several humanoid figures that were apparently looking down at him. The object followed the witness silently as he ran with his dog across the fields and to his house. The witness hid inside his home and last saw the object hovering over some nearby buildings.

Two families picnicking on the shore of Lake Erie watched a large silvery object rise out of the water and approach them using pendulum like movements. They all ran to their cars to leave but the vehicles would not start. The object got to within 30 feet of the witnesses and they were all able to see four humanoids with white heads and wearing black robes, inside the object. The object then flew back over the lake, rose vertically, and left.
