Date: October 1955
Location: Peterborough New Hampshire
Time: 2000
Summary: The 15-year old witness, a student at a local catholic seminary school, was walking back to the classroom after finishing some chores and glanced to a nearby field where he noticed four glowing bluish white oval shaped objects. One was larger that the rest and appeared to be on the ground. Standing next to the larger object were four human-like figures. The witness had the impression that the figures were extremely agitated for some unknown reason. Moments later the figures noticed the witness then he ran towards the school in order to obtain additional witnesses. Others saw the objects flying over the schoolhouse silently disappearing from sight.

Summary: Adding to the concern was a flying saucer sighting by US Senator Richard Russell and his party while traveling on a train in the USSR in October 1955. After extensive interviews of Russell and his group, however, CIA officials concluded that Russell’s sighting did not support the theory that the Soviets had developed saucer like or unconventional aircraft. Herbert Scoville, Jr., the Assistant Director of OSI, wrote that the objects observed probably were normal jet aircraft in a steep climb.

Summary: Oct. 2, 1955: Poughkeepsie, New York (BB)
At 6:16 p.m. EST, (2/2316Z). Colonial Airline Captain Edson Wood was flying at an altitude of 6,000 feet when he observed a round blue-white object that passed abeam to the port side of the aircraft and then it appeared to hover for 10 to 15 seconds. The object appeared as large as a baseball held at arm’s length. It then departed on a southeasterly heading at an extreme rate of speed. As the object faded in the distance it appeared to gain altitude. The object was also observed by the co-pilot. The total length of observation was 30 seconds. Captain Wood tried unsuccessfully to contact Air Defense Radar in hopes they might track this object. (Blue Book files, Dan Wilson)

Summary: Georgia Senator Richard Russell. To his considerable astonishment his eyes focused on a large disc-shaped object slowly ascending as a flame shot from underneath it. The object then raced north across the tracks in front of the train. Russell scurried to alert his two companions, who looked out to see a second disc do what the first had just done. At that moment Soviet trainmen shut the curtains and ordered the American passengers not to look outside.

Location: Nebraska, exact location not stated
Time: night
Summary: Under hypnosis the young witness recalled being alone in her bedroom when a being appeared floating outside her bedroom window. Using telepathy the being wills her to follow him. The being then floats into a hovering bowl shaped craft nearby. The being is described as less than four-foot tall, wearing a tight white skull cap, with an egg shaped hairless head, waxy grayish complexion, slit like mouth, tiny nose and eyes like two large dark slits. The witness floats towards the object and enters right through a wall. Inside the object it is extremely cold. The being along with several other smaller similar humanoids then placed the witness on a silver table where clamps appear. A blood sample is taken from her and then she is later returned to her room.

From a train stopped for a signal, Rev. Pitt-Kethly noticed a “flying platform” sail into view. Reddish brown & gray, the size of a small bus, it was flying a straight course at an altitude of about 120 ft. It bore about 30 immobile helmeted human figures, in khaki uniforms; some of them were seated and staring fixedly forward “like robots.”

Steck, 432nd FIS, while flying an F-89D at 25,000 feet was making a turn into the glide path when he saw a white glowing, oblong-shaped object 45 degrees to the right of his aircraft. The object was moving in a straight line very fast. The object then made a sharp 90 degree turn to the right. The object was picked up on radar by fighter pilot of the same organization. Airborne radar paint observed at 7 miles distance on scope. In 15-20 seconds the object was at 15 miles distance. (Dan Wilson, Brad Sparks, Weinstein; FUFOR Index)

Date: October 20 1955
Location: Portela de Pau, Orense, Spain
Time: late afternoon
Manuel Gonzalez Vazquez and his neighbor Erminda where in a field tending some cattle when they felt a slight tremor that lasted for a few minutes. Moments later they saw an undetermined figure inside “screen-like” image in the sky. The figure had a definite human shape. Seconds later they spotted a second flying figure approaching under the clouds. As the figure approached they could tell that it was a female figure, flying at 3 meters above the ground. It resembled an 18-year old girl, a little over a meter in height. Her hair was gathered up in a bun and was wearing a light turquoise colored cloak. The woman flew by the two witnesses and turned to look at them but did not say anything. It eventually glided away and disappeared from sight.
