Date: Spring 1965
Location: Sorgues, Provence, France
Time: evening
Summary: A 12-year old schoolboy was walking on a field near a forested glade when he came upon a landed craft, square in the bottom and topped off with a round transparent dome. As he stood about 20 feet away from the object a small man emerged from the craft and approached the young witness. The humanoid was described as about 40cm to 50cm in height, wearing a tight-fitting combination that covered him from head to toes. He had an egg-shaped head and large slanted eyes, small mouth and otherwise human features. He carried what appeared to be a futuristic pistol in his right hand and pointed it to the witness; at this point a ray of light illuminated the witness who became instantly paralyzed. The humanoid approached the witness and emitted sounds resembling “hic�hic”. He then walked back to the craft and entered. The object, which was about 3 meters in diameter then took off and flew silently away. At this point the witness regained his movement again.

Summary: A woman had just helped haul her somnambulant husband to bed, and he was snoring when he hit the pillow. She crawled in beside him, kissed him goodnight, and rolled over on her side. There standing in her hallway was a being. “He had on a helmet type, clear type helmet. He did not look like one of these weird beings, he looked like we do, kind of I would say ruddy complexion. He had on a gray type spacesuit with zippers down the arms, zippers down the front, zippers down the legs, and he held a glass round—all I could think of was a crystal ball, in his hands. I had a feeling he wasn’t going to hurt us. It was just—I don’t know—like mental telepathy or something, because it was like he would say, ‘I m not going to hurt you. I m just here observing you.’ Our galactic peeping Tom was not all that reassuring, and she was constantly reaching back and trying to get her happily snoring husband to wake up (which he never did). When her coughed in the other bedroom, the astronaut took his eyes from the glass ball and looked that way. That was too much, and maternal instincts took over, and she got up with “Don’t hurt my children!” in her mind. She got as far as the door “and he disappeared. Just like that.”

Date: March 2 1965  HOAX
Location: Weeki Wachee Springs Florida  BBU

Time: 1400
Summary: John Reeves, retired, was out hunting snakes when he saw a flying saucer, reddish purple, and bluish-green, standing on 4 legs on a sand hill. It was 20-30 ft in diameter, with a clear dome on top and a row of vanes around the circumference. Creeping to within 100 ft, Reeves saw a figure about 5 ft tall, wearing a silver gray one-piece “space suit” with a transparent “fishbowl” helmet. His hands were gloved and his feet were in metallic looking boots. His eyes were far apart, and his chin pointed. The humanoid raised to his chin a round dark objects which emitted two bright flashes; the witness took it for a camera. He then re-entered his craft by waking up a small retractable stairway, and the object rose vertically with a whistling noise. Reeves found at the site many dumbbell shaped footprints, and 4 roughly equidistant 6” holes, left by the landing gear. There were also two folded sheets of thin tissue like paper that bore messages written in an unknown alphabet. Reeves subsequently had further sightings and contacts.

Date: March 5 1965
Location: Red Rock Pennsylvania
Time: afternoon
Summary: Two radar technicians were repairing the height finder radar antenna located northeast of the 648th Radar squadron site @ Benton Air Force Base when a small metallic saucer shaped object landed near them, a beam of light came out and struck both technicians. That was the last they could remember, and they failed to report to the command post. A search by both military and civilian police ensued. Sixteen hours later, a state trooper found the two men walking on Route 487 in a dazed state. They were taken to a local hospital and found to be dehydrated. Later trace amounts of Alpha radiation were found on their clothing and strange marks were discovered on their necks. Later one of the men briefly recalled seeing strange short creatures poking instruments into his eyes, ears, and mouth.

Location: Mobile Alabama
Time: 1915
Summary: Mrs B. S. Crutchfield was on her front steps when she saw a “basketball shaped” object come from the southwest. It “looked like it was going to crash in the street.” It was encircled around the middle by windows, through one of which she was able to see an entirely human appearing occupant, dressed in a silver garment. She was able to see a second figure as the object rotated, through another window, as he stood in front an instrument panel. Closest proximity was 150 feet, and lowest altitude about 60-70 feet above ground. Duration was about 2 minutes. The object disappeared in a westerly direction. The witness had subsequent sightings.

Date: March 12, 1965: James Flynn Florida Everglades Encounter


Date: March 15 1965
Location: Fort Myers, Florida
Time: 0100A
Summary: Experienced woodsman, James Flynn spotted something unusual that he judged to be slightly 1 mile away. Whatever it was, it was hovering, shaped like a broad, upside-down cone, an estimated 200 meters in the air above some cypress trees. After awhile it began flying off toward the northeast. After 2 to 3 minutes it returned to the same place, and hovered again, this time for an estimated 5 minutes. Then it took off toward the southwest at a high rate of speed. Soon however, it returned to the same location again. At this point Flynn was only about a quarter mile away, and the object seemed to come down among some trees in a small knoll. Suspecting he was watching some type of secret aircraft from Cape Canaveral, Flynn approached it. Flynn described the object as some 25 ft high, and twice that in its diameter. Up near the top were four by two foot square window-looking sections that emitted a yellowish glow. The thing was metallic and seemed to be made of four by four plates that appeared to be held together by rivets. Around the base of the object was an orange red illumination that seemed to cast a glow on the ground some 75 ft around its rim. After some 40 minutes into the sighting, Flynn decided to approach closer. He reasoned the crew of the “experimental craft” might need some assistance. He noticed a deafening ringing noise he compared to a high-powered transformer. The dog in the cage is howling and trying frantically to get out. Some 200 yards away Flynn stops his buggy and waves his arms in the air. He can see the object is hovering a mere 4 ft over the grass; a blast of wind nearly knocks him off of his feet. He approaches closer, within an estimated and mere 75 ft from the craft, he again waves his arms. Then, from under one of the apparent windows, a beam of light like a “welder’s torch” suddenly appears and strikes him in the forehead. He states later that it felt like he’d been struck with a sledgehammer. He soon blacked out. Sometime later he regains consciousness. Finding himself initially blind he lays there for a long while until he recovers a small amount of vision in his left eye. Its already Tuesday morning and Flynn gathers up his dogs and makes his way to the home of Henry Osceola a Seminole Indian who lived in the Everglades swamp. Flynn suffers from permanent damage to his right eye. Later Flynn and two others find a burned circle some 72 feet across under where the object had been hovering.

Location: Jose de San Martin Argentina
Time: unknown
Summary: Three objects were seen flying over the city. Outside of town one of the objects appeared to land. Local police responded to the site, and upon arriving, saw two humanoid type creatures standing 15 feet southeast of a landed bluish white cigar shaped object. After apparently hearing the police car, the beings ran to the object and scampered up a ramp leading to one of the ends of the cigar. The object then rose straight up until it was lost to sight. An area of flattened grass was found on the landing site.
