Summary: A soldier at the local military base observed two little figures crossing a nearby highway and disappearing in a grove of date palms. They were 65 cm tall, humanoid in form but with pronounced stomach and buttocks, short legs and very long arms. Their heads were shaped like inverted pears, and they wore what appeared to be goggles of a phosphorescent yellow color. The figures appeared to be unclothed and green in color; no sexual organs could be discerned. The soldier was in a state of panic and nervous excitement as a result of his observation. The figures were similar to the one reported at San Feliu de Codines in September 1967.

Summary: Mr Ron Sullivan, 38, a steel construction businessman from Maryborough was travelling in his car towards St Arnaud. While approaching the town at ninety five km/h he noticed in the distance a light which he thought was a tractor in the paddock. As he came close, to his amazement the beams of his headlights were bent to the right, off the road and onto the paddock. Visible in the paddock was a brilliant white disc, a metre or so across. It was just above the ground. From its upper surface projected a conical array of shimmering rainbow coloured lights extending to a height of five metres. Suddenly, the coloured cone rose to a height of six metres and the disc below climbed above it. The next moment the entire light complex vanished.He stopped to check his headlights but found nothing wrong. Three days later a nineteen year old youth, driving a car, was killed at the same spot in mysterious circumstances.

Summary: In a confusing and covered up incident numerous independent witnesses including dozens of schoolchildren and teachers from the local Westall High school watched a metallic disc shaped craft land on nearby field, then take off again, while several Cessna-type aircraft and other silvery “plane-like” objects circled the area. Some witnesses found a perfect circle of flattened grass on the ground while others encountered military or government personnel in the area who warned them to stay away. Some witnesses described seeing a cow in the paddock, where the object came down. It was alleged to have been in such a distressed state that it eventually had to be put down. One student who arrived before the others was found to be in a dazed trance like state. Other schoolchildren saw the object on the ground and a normal looking man in white coveralls walking around it, telling everyone to stay back. Another man appeared, this one wearing a dark uniform with an emblem or a logo on it. One of the men was seeing entering the object, while the other disappeared. The object emitted a loud humming sound then took off.

Six 17-year-old boys & girls in a shelter in the park heard footsteps on the shelter roof. Two boys went out to investigate, and heard a buzzing noise that seemed to surround them; in a field they saw 2 red lights a foot in diameter. Meanwhile those left in the shelter had seen a very tall man, dressed in black, standing outside. They left and started back to their car, when the buzzing was heard again, and they saw 2 blue lights low in the sky, which were joined by a very bright white light. Watching from the car, they continued to hear the sound, and saw “4 things like footballs with domes on them.” They drove away—with difficulty, for the engine kept stalling—and were followed by a “hug light” which did not reflect in the rearview mirror.

Time: 0200A
Dr. Eula Page, a psychologist, was driving homeward from Texas with her 2 children & a friend when she noticed a luminous object as big as the moon, darting back & forth across the highway. Just after she had crossed the Red River Bridge she came directly underneath it, and stopped; it descended & hovered very close to the car. A luminous horizontal lens shaped body, more than twice the length of her station wagon, was surrounded by a spherical framework that was revolving around it. On one side of the disc was a long window through which 4 human occupants were to be seen; one stood regarding her, while the others busied themselves with instruments & controls on the rear wall, on which multicolored lights were flashing. They wore tight-fitting silvery gray uniforms and had slanted “Oriental” eyes. Her daughter said that one was a woman. Standing outside the car, Dr. Page watched the UFO for about 20 minutes. A “force field” around the craft made it difficult for her to breathe, and a hot wind blew from the sphere that smelt “electrical.” Finally another car approached, and the UFO quickly moved away toward the river.

10:30 p.m. EST. Members of a family about 13 miles north of Randolph, Mass., saw a disc with dome on top and blinking red lights around the edge, and a brilliant yellow light on top of the dome, bobbing up and down as it moved. The yellow light blinked or flashed alternately with the red lights. The object stopped, hovering over a building. After a while it approached the family’s apartment building and maneuvered between it and the adjacent building, emitting a humming sound. It hovered again briefly at the end of the alley, then moved away erratically to the east and disappeared. The same or an identical object was seen again several hours

5:00 a.m. EDT. The same family as in the previous entry saw an identical oval or discoid object with dome and yellow light on top and red lights around the edge. flashing in the same pattern as the night before. The object emitted a humming sound and “weird, whirring, mechanical noises” as it bobbed around apparently close to the building. An explosive sound was heard, the windows rattled and furniture shook, and the lights went out. The family German shepherd dog whined and scratched at the door (animal reaction). The start of a power failure, which affected about 2,500 homes in the area, was officially timed at 4:57 a.m. It was later attributed to a breakdown in the insulation of the wiring at a point very near the apartment building. Later that evening investigators detected some abnormal radiation on the window sill where the object had been seen. (Keyhoe & Lore, 1969b, pp. 45-47; Walter N. Webb investigation report; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 8, May-June 1966, pp. 7-8; Fowler 1974, p. 340.)

An architect and Naval reserve officer camping out with his daughter heard a fluttering sound, then they saw a disc-like object (estimated 20 feet diameter) with a double row of lights or ports around the rim hovering 150-200 feet away at treetop height. It appeared to be rotating, and a blue light pulsated around its rim. The UFO gradually accelerated and moved away to the southwest. (NICAP report form; U.F.O.
