2:00 a.m. CST. A farmer saw a disc-shaped object an estimated 40 feet in diameter hovering over a corn field, making a noise like whirling wind. The object moved away, returned and hovered again, then lifted straight up and moved away to the east emitting a red glow. (NICAP notes based on newspaper story.)

Summary:   Police officer Vern Morse and his wife were driving home on Route 101 when they saw what at fist looked like a parachute flare, which crossed the highway in front of him at 200 feet altitude and began to climb. Stepping out of the car, he saw that it was a glowing cylindrical object about 5 ft in diameter and 8-9 ft long. Struts connected the lower, solid portion with the cone-topped upper portion, and inside these a man was standing. Morse followed it for a mile or so, at 50-60 mph. Finally the light suddenly went out. Another driver also saw it.

Location. Strongsville Ohio
Date: December 13 1966
Time: 1553
Mrs Elsie Vargo and her daughter, driving over a newspaper delivery route, saw a low flying object cross the road about 100 ft away and at a 100 ft altitude, then turn toward them, terrifying the girl. It was about the size of an automobile and bright silver in color with the outer edges glowing red, of a “batwing” shaped with a bubble cupola on top. It carried an antenna bearing a flashing red light. Inside the bubble was visible a small human form dressed and helmeted in black. Mrs Vargo did not see where the object went. There was no sound, & no interference with the car’s radio.

Location: Cambridge, Mass
Time: from midnight to 4 A.M.
Summary:  Photo Editor, Sky & Telescope Cambridge, ‘Mass. Dear Sir: On Dec. 13 (A.M.) from midnight to 4 A.M., T had four cameras set up in my roof-top observatory to record the Geminid meteor shower. All used 120 size roll film (2lt x 3l+” size). Although only three meteors were picked up during this time, one of the Kodak Medalists (f3.5, 4 inch focal length (lens used wide open) recorded the enclosed unusual trails during the (See “EopJ” – Page 5) b period between 3 and 3:10 approximately. This camera was aimed to the South and up at a 45 degree angle. Jupiter appears at the top right of the print. The trails rise into the camera’s field from the bottom. At the time this was recorded I was changing the film in two ol the other cameras and had my back turned to the South and did not see anything. Of course I don’t understand how anything this bright did not attract my attention, but apparently the object or objects were silent. I have checked every possibility that could have caused these trails and can find none that fit the facts. Due to the blinking effect of some ol the trails, I of course thought that they were aircraft lights, but examination of several negatives on hand taken with the same cameras in the past show an entirely different effect. The main trails here are fully as bright as the Jupiter image which gives a good comparison. I have been observing and photographing the sky for over 20 years and have never caught anything like this before. Your opinions would be most welcome on this matter. Very truly yours, John T. HopI

3:00 a.m. LT. A Canadian Pacific DC-8 airliner traveling on a northwest course at 35,000 feet observed a pair of pulsating, luminous objects hovering to their left. The objects descended at a slight angle and took up position off their left wing, pacing the plane for 1-2 minutes. Some members of the crew thought there was a connecting structure between the two lights. The lights were separated by about 3-4 degrees. A V-shaped pair of thin light beams emanated from the objects, first pointing upward, then downward. Finally, the objects accelerated, pulled away, and climbed out over the Pacific Ocean to the west, disappearing in the distance.

8:15 p.m. Physics professor Dr. Galloway driving through a wooded area saw a bright, pulsating glow, changing from orange to white, in the woods about 1 mile away, estimated visible light power output at about 1 megawatt. Coming back the next day, he located traces of burns, and called the USAF and University of Colorado UFO project. (Vallée Magonia 808; Condon Rpt pp. 277-280; Richard Hall NICAP letter Mar. 3, 1967)

Location: Near Leticia Peru
Time: daytime
Summary: Ludwig Pallmann a health food sales representative and expert on nutritional plants was searching the jungles deep within the rain forest. Near the Mari River his boat paddlers told him the next district was “very mysterious” and not well known. They mentioned that the tribe living there was secretive and was thought to be working with some “Americans” up there. Soon as he explored the area several Indians armed with crude hand made weapons approached him. He was then conducted to a small village of plastic like cones, resembling American Indian teepees, but the material was firm, like metal. There he saw a couple of persons dressed in calf-length toga like garments. They were light skinned and seemed to be of a white race stock. Pallmann addressed them in English, which they seemed not to understand. He tried other languages without any results. Then one of them went in a hut for something and came out with a translating device. It was adjusted and they began to understand him. These Aryan looking light skinned humans told him that they came from a planet much like Earth in many respects. They were operating this plantation site with local Indians in an attempt to develop hardier and higher yield species of plants and fruits. Pallmann stayed with them for nearly a month. The strange visitors, that called themselves, Itibians from the planet Iti-Bara traveled in 30-foot diameter disc shaped objects, ceramic in appearance. These ascended and descended vertically, and flew in horizontal flight with prodigious speed.

Date: late 1966
Location: DMZ Vietnam
Time: afternoon
Summary: At a landing zone called “Oasis” the witness was working as a door gunner. On that date he was pulling perimeter guard duty. As they came under attack, a C-130 gun ship called “Puff the Magic Dragon” flew just outside their position and was working out their guns. It looked like fire coming from a hose in the dark. The next morning the other gunners and the witness decided to rearrange out-linked ammo to have all the tracers together to give the same effect as the night before. That afternoon they went out on a reckon mission. As they approached the landing zone they opened up with their machine guns. The LZ (landing zone) was large and mostly clear waist high dried grass. As they landed they received enemy fire. Small fires started all over from their tracer rounds. He heard on the intercom that a helicopter behind them was down with main rotor problems and fires had them enveloped, his captain ordered him to go back with a “fire bottle” and see if he could help. The witness grabbed the bottle but did not think to take his rifle. As he ran to their position the crew chief waved him back. It seems like the rotor was fine and they were about to take off. As he ran back he became disoriented, and became lost. As he ran around looking he heard someone shout “Dung Li” which means stop or halt in Vietnamese. He looked around and saw a North Vietnamese soldier pointing his AK at him. Feeling helpless, since he was completely unarmed he dropped to his knees, hands up. At the same time the soldier spoke to him things that he could not understand. As the soldier backed up, the witness knew he was going to die. From fear he then felt overwhelming sadness. As his whole life past in front of his eyes, he just hoped that it did not hurt so much. Suddenly a total peace came over him, a feeling he could not describe. He then heard a loud crack. He jumped up thinking that he had been shot. He heard a thump and saw the enemy soldier fall to the ground. As he looked up, he saw the tallest person he had ever seen. He saw what appeared to be a GI about 7 or 8 ft tall. He just stood there motionless, perfect in dress, incredibly with no soil marks or sweat, a perfect looking figure. His eyes shaded by the helmet showed through; an aura appeared to be all around him. He then spoke to the witness clearly. He told him that it was Ok that he was going to be safe. He added: “Thomas, go back to your bird.” The witness realized that the stranger’s lips never moved, apparently he had communicated with him telepathically. Thomas jumped up and ran to his “bird” (helicopter). As they lifted up, he looked down to see the dead enemy soldier, but no sign of the giant figure. He never mentioned what really happened to anyone for over 30 years.
