Location: Milford, Pennsylvania

Summary: Frances Stichler, who lived on a farm, was working in her barn when she heard a whirring sound and saw a bowl-shaped object, 7 meters in diameter, with a rim over 1 meter wide about 5 meters above ground. It stopped with one side tilted toward her. A man dressed in a loose, shiny, gray suit, wearing a tight-fitting helmet, was facing her from inside the object. He seemed of average height had deep-set eyes, tanned skin, and a long face with a “quizzical” expression. Almost immediately the object left toward the southeast.

Location: Pajas Blancas Airport Argentina
Time: 0700
Summary: When his motorcycle suddenly failed, the driver observed a disk, 2O m in diameter and 5 m thick, hovering about 15 m above ground. He hid in a ditch and saw the craft come down, making a sound similar to air escaping from a valve. A sort of lift descended from its base almost to the ground. In it was a man of average height, who made friendly gestures to the witness. He was dressed in a plastic diving suit. The witness entered the machine and saw inside several people seated before instrument panels, lighted by an extraordinary light. He was then escorted out, and the disk rose to the northwest. During the next hour, six sightings were made along the same course by independent witnesses.

Summary:  James D. Bittick and John R. Gettys, Jr., civilian phototheodolite operators, were driving by truck to Askania Site #4 when they sighted an object above them about 500 yards away.  They radioed a report to their supervisor Frank Baker who told them to set up the camera and try to film the object, which they did after about 10 mins.  They photographed what they described as a golden luminous domed-saucer shaped object with holes or ports around the dome about 100 ft in diameter about 1 mile in the distance to the N headed E (photos show multiple? objects).  Available phototheodolite frames 614, 620 and 651 (609 too blurred, cutoff) show azimuth 10°28′ elevation 2°24′ shifting E to azimuth 40°30′ elevation 1°0′.  Disappeared at about 5 miles.  Possible jet fighter interception.  [Possible weather balloon with slow leak, explanation denied by Edwards AFB Colonel Klein (sp?) analyzing actual tracking of balloon and wind direction.]   25 mins 2 witnesses 8 Full Moons? photo-theodolite

Location: Beaucourt-sur-Ancre France
Time: 2250
Summary: A Hungarian refugee, Michel Fekete, was riding his bicycle when he saw an object hovering 30 cm above ground and four little men nearby. The police found lava like fragments at the site. Six other witnesses vouch for the sighting including Messrs. Iklef and Lepot and their wives. The craft was luminous, pulsating between red and white (remaining red longer). When white, it was more blinding than a powerful searchlight. It was 50 m away from the group of witnesses. Occupants were about 1.30 m tall with a beige-gray body, an abnormally large black head, and a waddling gait. The object flew away when a car came into view.

Summary: May 20, 1957; East Anglia, UK  Night. This is a case reported by a former jet pilot in the United States Air Force, Milton John Torres, of Miami, Florida. On this date, the 25-year-old Torres was ordered on a mission to intercept and shoot down a large UFO that had been picked up by radar in the skies over East Anglia, United Kingdom. Torres, flying a North American F-86D Sabre jet approached the object and prepared to fire upon it. As he locked on his weapons, the UFO suddenly zoomed away at a high rate of speed. The details of this case were first made public in a release of UFO-related case files by the British government in October 2008. (UK files)
