Date: January 1965
Location: San Miguel, Andes, Argentina
Time: unknown
Summary: It was reported that an object had fallen from the sky at San Rafael, 4 kilometers fro San Miguel, and a photograph of it appeared later in FSR May/June 1965. The Argentine Air Force subsequently removed the object, whatever it was. Most folk thought it was a satellite of some kind, but a few inhabitants of the area where convinced that it was a UFO and several said they had seen small individuals, near the object, that wore “strange diver’s suits” which gave off a greenish phosphorescence.

Summary: A group of musicians (including Jimi Hendrix) driving back to Manhattan were stranded in a heavy blizzard and had gotten stuck in a heavy drift that reached the hood of their vehicle. It was bitter cold. The road ahead of them suddenly lit up, as a bright phosphorescent object, cone shaped, like a capsule landed in the snow about 100 feet up ahead. It stood on a tripod landing gear. Before any of the stunned occupants of the vehicle could move, a door opened on the side of the craft and an entity stepped out. He stood eight-feet tall, his skin was yellowish, and instead of eyes, the creature had slits. His forehead came to a point, and his head ran straight to his chest, leaving the impression that he had no neck. The being proceeded to float to the ground and glided towards the trapped occupants of the van. The snow seemed to melt in the wake of the creature. His body seemed to generate tremendous heat, so much so that as it came across a small rise, the snow disappeared around in all directions. In a matter of what seemed like seconds, the being came over to the right hand side of the van, where Hendrix sat and looked right through the window. According to other witnesses at the scene the creature seemed to be communicating telepathically with Hendrix. Immediately the interior of their vehicle began to heat up. The heat coming from the being evaporated the snow enough to free their imprisoned van. The being glide behind the van and the snowdrift by now had completely vanished. Turning the ignition the driver gunned the engine and drove away at high speed. As they looked back they could see the road filling in with snow again. The object was at the same instant lifting off like a rocket from a launching pad.

Date: January 1965
Location. Near Table Mountain, Central Tasmania, Australia
Time: late afternoon
Summary: A hunter was stalking deer near the marsh area when a man in dark clothing suddenly appeared out of nowhere beside him and stayed with him in the walk, of about 150 yards, down to the marsh. The hunter tried to no avail to engage this man in conversation. He saw that the man seemed to have an incredibly old face marked by cracks and wrinkles, “like a skeleton with skin on it.” The man wore a big dark military coat with light epaulettes. At the edge of the marsh the hunter turned to the man and asked to no avail what he wanted. He then looked down and was shocked to see that the man had no feet. Then the man vanished.

Summary: The black top I was traveling was and still to this day is elevated 5ft. above the fields.Around 20:00 hrs (8:00 p.m.)Heading north,on my left side,i noticed a ball of fire grow from out of no where into a beatiful redish/orange color that intermixed with in itself.This energy/fireball glowed but did not light up the ground or area .This wonder stayed exactly to my left and same speed as i was driving(60mph).It stayed at this beatiful intentness and colors for 10 seconds max.,then dissapeared (went out??) as fast as it appeared.After maybe 6-7 seconds,to my supprize,again the same occourance happened as the first mentioned above.This time the brightness and color hit the same max as before for about 2-3 seconds-then intensified way beyond anything i had ever seen before,but could look at it. As i was thinking,just how big and bright will this thing become,it left at a rate of speed,that is not possible from anything on our earth.It went forward and up and out of sight in 2 seconds.Looking at it,the size would be compaired to a soccor ball at arms length.This object glowed redish orange.No actual structor was noticed.Just a intense beatiful color in a fire ball.Maintained with in itself.Nothing abnormal went on with the car.

Time:  3:13 a.m.
Summary:  A Norfolk Police patrolman observed in the western sky one round large light leading 7-8 smaller bright lights in trail in single file formation on a straight and level flight path from south to north. The large light had the apparent size of a dime held at arm’s length. A split second before the final disappearance another large object seemed to shoot out ahead of the original large object. The observer was prompted to report his sighting after the local news announced the Patuxent River Naval Air Station radar tracking of two UFOs on 29 December.

At 10 p.m. a former Manchester newsman, Mr. Charles Knee, Jr., was driving on Route 4-A when the radio suddenly stopped, the lights on the car went out and the engine quit. He lost control of the car and pulled to the side of the road and then heard a loud humming sound like a high frequency electrical whine. He then opened the car door and stepped out. He looked up and saw a very bright light below the cloud cover at around 2,000 to 5,000 feet altitude which looked about the size of a flashlight held at arm’s length pointed toward his face. It seemed to hover for a moment and then it took off to the south traveling very fast. As the light left and the whine died away the car’s lights and radio came on and the motor started. The whole thing lasted about 15 or 20 seconds. (Dan Wilson, BB files)

Summary: A group of teenagers, including Steve Miller, 16, were riding on Route 250 near Brands Flats when they saw a little man about 3 ½ feet tall sitting by the road watching the cars passing. He was wearing a silvery looking one-piece silvery garment. They got out of the car and pursued the little man; two more joined the first and ran with him, easily outrunning the boys and leaving no footprints in the muddy ground. The group contacted the Staunton police; within an hour a group of police were on the scene, as well as a young photographer, Charles Weaver. Weaver, and a man named Huffer, approached a barn, which the photographer entered; calling out to Huffer, who found his companion knocked down. Weaver claimed something struck him. They left the barn, but as they fled, believed they saw a little man standing in front of the building; Weaver paused long enough to take a picture, and the pair joined the other investigators. The disposition of the photograph was never determined.

6:00 p.m. EST. A NASA research engineer, A. G. Crimmins (located at Hampton) observed an object that was approximately 75 feet across and 10 to 15 feet in height. The object had 3 to 7 lights colored red and orange. The object appeared to rotate. The object first appeared at an azimuth of 20 degrees and a maximum of 75 feet of elevation. The object moved approximately 1/4 mile west of the original position on a zigzag course and then appeared to land on the shore. It remained fixed for approximately five minutes. The object then took off to the north and then turned right to depart to the east at a high rate of speed. The object was viewed through 20-power binoculars. There were apparently other reports of similar sightings in the same area at approximately the same time. (UFOE II, Section IV).
