Date:  September  1957
Location:  Ubatuba, Brazil
Time:  
Summary:  This is the only one of the crash-retrieval incidents supported by physical evidence that also has the pieces of the reported craft to study to go with it, and a number of people have taken part in the analyses. Although still surrounded in controversy the case is worthy of inclusion in the NICAP files. The latest addition to this case file is the complete 33-page analysis report by Dr. Peter Sturrock. Our thanks to Dr. Sturrock and all the other participants who made this report available on the NICAP site.

Date: September 1, 1957
Location: Porthcawl, Glamorgan, Wales
Time: Midnight
Summary:  Two policemen patrolling the seafront saw a blood-red object with a jagged black streak across its centre rise out of the water on the horizon. Chief-Inspector Reginald Jones, of “D” Division, Glamorgan Police, told Flying Saucer Review that the two policemen thought at first that they were seeing a ship on fire on the horizon towards Ilfracombe. But then it rose out of the water like a blood-red sun, a good deal larger than a full-sized harvest moon. While the two police officers watched, two more streaks appeared above and below. It remained at sea level, then suddenly took off at a fantastic speed towards the Atlantic. Chief-Inspector Jones said the report had gone to top level. An Air Ministry spokesman said that one possible explanation of the phenomenon was that it was “a planet playing tricks.” “Venus does at certain times of the year play all kinds of tricks–often due to climatic conditions.” Flying Saucer Review has since ascertained that Venus went below the horizon one hour after sunset on that evening. Sunset was at 7.48 p.m. (Summer time). So it could not possibly have been visible at around midnight!

Date: September 3, 1957
Location: Binghamton, New York
Time: about 9 pm
Summary: This event happened when I was 12 years old. I was in bed at night and looking out the window through my open curtains. It would have been about 9 pm, maybe a little later. The house next door was dark and the neighbors were away. Suddenly, in the yard between our houses, a glowing light appeared. It was oval in shape and the lights it gave off were whitish but with many other colors mixed in. These lights seemed to shift and change but they made no shadows on the ground. Whatever this was seemed to simply materialize out of the air and was possibly about 10 feet off the ground. It might have been just a few feet high but the size seemed to shift and change. The light appeared to open up and something began to come out. I was terrified and called out to my father who was passing my bedroom door on his way to bed. He came in and sat by the window to watch it with me. I asked him what it was and he said he didn’t know. I had the feeling we were seeing something we were not meant to see. Then we both either fell asleep or passed out. We woke up at the same time and the lights were gone. I don’t know how much time had passed. It could have been seconds or an hour. It felt like a long time. I asked my father again what happened and he again said he didn’t know. After that, whenever I asked him about the event he would get angry and say he had no idea what I was talking about. Soon after this happened, I began to have physical problems and a few years later was put on thyroid medication. When I was in my 40s, I asked my father one last time if he knew what happened that night. This time he did not deny it but he wasn’t able to recall anything much about it. I am now 70 years old and my father has been dead for a few years, so I am the only witness. I have told very few people about this experience, but having recently found out about Mufon, I thought I should record what I could remember. I’m sure what I saw had an intelligence behind it. I have no doubt that we are not alone in the universe.

6:40 p.m. A lady had taken her dog for a walk and was looking into the sky checking the weather. She saw an object moving north to south, descending straight down onto a nearby lot. She described the object as white, noiseless, and boomerang-shaped and looked to be larger than a house. When it landed she heard a voice tell her very clearly not to say anything of this. She called her husband and asked him if he had said anything, and he said no. She said she watched the object while her husband checked on it. The object then rose straight up above the trees to about 1500-2000′ then took off at high speed. and disappeared. Report says object was observed about 25 minutes. Her husband searched the lot and found the grass flattened and tracks that looked like from a child’s wagon. (Vallée Magonia 403; FUFOR Index)
