Date:  January 5 1966
Location: Near La Harpe, Illinois
Time: 0815A
Summary: Driving 2 miles north of La Harpe on Rte. 94, Violet Bricker observed the flash of lights on what she first believed was an approaching plane; as it neared, she saw it was more dirigible-shaped and closing on her rapidly on a collision course. It stopped and hovered over the telephone lines opposite her car; silent, it was egg shaped, about as long as a Piper Club and 10 feet thick, and had a single bright yellow-white light on the end facing her. No doors, ports, or landing gear were seen; a lateral line like a seam encircled it. It began revolving in a clockwise motion on its axis, bringing the other end in view and exposing a two-foot platform on which stood a “man” wearing a bulky, white one-piece suit. He was about 5 1/2 feet tall, stocky in build, and he stood with his left hand against the object and his right hand on his hip, staring directly down on the witness. His face had a ruddy complexion and his eyes were dark; he looked entirely normal otherwise. The object drifted about on its axis again and the figure was lost from view, rapidly disappearing from view. She was so taken aback by the experience she could not recall if she actually stopped her car or not; she recalled seeing a man and a woman on foot not 20 feet away to whom she signaled frantically to catch their attention, but to no avail.

7:40 p.m. EST. About 140 miles west-southwest of Wanaque, N.J., in the vicinity of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a nurse and others together in a car saw a luminous disc, like one saucer inverted on top of another, at relatively close range as it hovered above the car.

Time: Jan. 16, 1966; El Paso, TX
10:00 p.m. CST. An American Airlines flight from San Francisco to Houston, Texas, was paced by a bright object just after take-off from El Paso en route to Houston via San Antonio. Two psychologists on board, in a report to NICAP, expressed themselves as dumbfounded by what they saw. A bright light was observed trailing the airliner, moving up and down erratically, speeding ahead, and then reversing course. At one point the pilot, without explanation, turned on the landing lights for a few seconds, banked sharply, and then returned to course. After the plane landed in San Antonio, the witnesses saw the object “shoot up and execute a wide hyperbolic swing into the sky…” (U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 11, Jan.-Feb. 1967, pp. 1, 3.)

Summary: Jan. 20, 1966; Katanning, Australia
112:30 a.m. An object with a row of bright body lights was observed to hover, and to move up and down, while emitting a blinding light and making a sound like bees humming. After a long period of time, the lights brightened and the object suddenly sped away (luminosity/speed correlation).

Location: Crockerton England
Time: midnight
Summary: Near Shearwater Lake a resident of Frome, on a motorcycle, saw 3 “gray garbed and white faced” persons; looking like frogmen, enter a hedgerow. They had wide-spaced eyes and no mouths. One figure was seen to have fair hair. They were shorter than normal humans, but with big shoulders, rather large heads and thin legs. He came back and saw a “large saucer of light” rise from the lakeside. The saucer hovered briefly before flying off in the direction of Cley Hill.

Summary: The anonymous witnesses were changing a tire when they saw a flying saucer land 200 yards away. On investigation they found an object 75-100 ft in diameter and 25 ft high. A door slid open and a 7-foot spaceman appeared, called them by name, and conversed with them by telepathy. He said his race was from another star & that 400 American citizens are actually of his race.

12:10 a.m. Two civilians returning from a sporting event saw what they first thought was the moon. After driving for about 1/2 mile, they saw it was a flat, well-defined object blocking the road, the size of a truck, casting an intense yellow-orange light on the ground. They turned around and drove back to Rexburg. (Vallee, 1969, p. 322.)
