Summary: The witness was alone sitting in a wooded area when a man wearing a peculiar outfit suddenly confronted him. The man wore a one-piece outfit closed at the neck, long sleeves, and pants that seemed to go right into the boots. The beige outfit had a single metallic belt with a silver box attached on the front. A small blue light flickered occasionally on the box. The man had very fine blond hair, and friendly pale blue eyes. He communicated with the witness telling him he was from a world a great distance from earth and that his name was “Zo.” Eventually the being left, leaving behind a low buzzing sound that lasted a few minutes. The witness claims additional contacts.

Time: evening
Two men sitting outside their homes watched a huge cigar shaped object moving slowly towards their house. It was described as “as long as a football field,” with layers of observation decks and giant well lit portholes. Numerous moving shadows could be seen moving back and forth behind the portholes. It had a massive round hold on its bottom from which a bright white light poured out. A lime green fog suddenly shot out from the luminous hole floating down to the ground, then a green ball of light entered the witness house and circled around several times, it then left leaving a pale green glow behind.

Date: Summer 1966
Time: evening
12-year old Eve was playing in her backyard with her cousins when she began to feel a strange sensation, like something or someone was calling her, or watching her. She turned to look behind her, and was stunned by the sight of a craft in the distance. The craft had an array of colored lights. The lights were blinking on and off. They encircled the strange craft, and these lights seemed to be of a color she had not seen before, and were extremely bright and clear. She said: “The more I looked, the more I wanted to keep looking.” The sight of the beautifully colored lights somehow made her feel happy. She could not taker her eyes off the craft and its twinkling lights. While some of the other children ran inside the house, Eve remained outside staring at the craft, which now appeared to be much closer. Now she could see two beings through a window, she could make out part of one of their bodies and another being seemed to be controlling the UFO. The two appeared to be conversing among each other. The beings appeared thin, with long dangling arms. Suddenly a beam of light shot out of the craft and seemed to head towards her, she ran into the bushes with the beam of light close behind her. She was now kneeling, shaking and crying to herself. The beam was moving, apparently scanning the ground close to her. The object was totally motionless as the beam angled towards the ground. Soon the light disappeared up into the craft, not turned off, but drawn into the craft in one motion. Within a moment, the craft disappeared. Looking up into the sky, Eve now saw three other similar craft that appeared to be moving in unison. Soon the objects made a type of jerking motion and in a flash they were gone.

10:30 p.m. LT. A former RCAF pilot and a friend were cruising on the lake when they saw lights on the water ahead. As they approached within a mile, the lights rose with an audible “swish” and a pulsating humming sound. The two men now could see that it was a disc with dome on top, and it cast an oval reflection on the lake surface. Around the dome was a row of bright yellow lights, and blue-green lights were visible around the lower perimeter (body lights). After hovering briefly, the UFO took off at high speed and quickly disappeared. (U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 9, Aug.-Sept. 1966, p. 5)

James, 7, & Michael Harkins, with another boy, went to the beach after seeing a “rocket or jet” apparently dive into the sea. There they saw 2 men standing talking; they wore glass encased helmets, gray suits, and had what looked like scuba tanks on their backs. On hearing one boy whistle, they dashed to the water & boarded a “round white thing” that sped to a strange vessel 100 yards offshore. The craft, which bore a gray star and the letters “HU HR PS RED,” had windows through which people could be seen. When the 2 men reached it, it submerged & vanished.

Late afternoon. During submarine USS Tiru SS-416 cruise, five of the crew reported a strange contact at a range of 2 miles bearing 315 degrees relative. The three men looked through their binoculars toward the area reported and were astounded to see a metal craft larger than a football field tumble from the clouds into the ocean. At about the same time a crew member below queried the bridge about a radar contact at the same range and bearing, which gave them a range of 3 nautical miles. Sonar also reported strange echos. See detailed report. (Carl Feindt)

8:50 p.m. LT. Two nuclear scientists reported seeing a very bright yellow object above a cloud bank on the western horizon, moving slowly. The object then accelerated northward and disappeared behind a tall bank of clouds. About 10 minutes later the same or a similar object appeared traveling from north to south, stopped and hovered in the northwest sky for about 30 minutes. The object then diminished in apparent size and was hidden by clouds near the horizon. When viewed through 10 x 60 binoculars, the object had a conical shape and was reflecting sunlight. Its length was computed to be about 60 feet. (Flying Saucer Review, Vol. 12, No. 5, Sept.-Oct. 1966, pp. 27-28.)

3:42 a.m. MDT. Julian Sandoval, a NASA contract flight engineer, also an experienced pilot and navigator, and two independent witnesses saw a glowing elongated object with a blunt end. It had a series of four body lights varying from brilliant green to a bluish tinge, and was hovering at an estimated 12,000 feet. When the object moved, its glow brightened and it appeared to be a powered craft (luminosity/motion correlation). The witness watched the object for an hour and a half, after which it climbed vertically, accelerated to a high velocity and disappeared to the northeast in about 12 seconds. In a report to NICAP, Sandoval estimated the departure speed at “Mach 6 or better.” (Christian Science Monitor, July 11, 1966; I/. P.O. Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 9, Aug.-Sept. 1966, p. 3.)

4:00 a.m. LT. A farm woman and farm hands saw a large disc-shaped object with bright green, red, yellow and blue body lights descend behind some woods about 500 meters away. A few minutes later two cylindrical objects also with body lights appeared, and the disc reappeared, taking up position between the two cylinders, which closed in on the disc, turned, and all three as a unit shot up at terrific speed and disappeared in less than a second. A column of smoke was then seen rising from behind the woods that spread and enveloped one of the men as the woman and the other man took shelter in their car. The three then went to the clearing beyond the woods to investigate and found a freshly broken tree branch and scorched potato plants (physical traces). The man who had been enveloped by the smoke cloud later experienced extraordinary sleepiness. (Investigated by Antonio Ribera. Flying Saucer Review Vol. 12, No. 6, Nov-Dec. 1966, pp. 3-4.)

A significant air intercept was made at 12:45 a.m. local time of unidentified radar targets by an Anderson AFB Air Rescue Squadron C-130 aircraft equipped with a APS-59 radar. Radar contact was made and maintained for 20 minutes and numerous intercepts were attempted. Vectors called by the ground radar controller checked perfectly with the return identified on the airborne radar. A third radar an FPS-6 Height Finder was also in operation and showed a return. The C-130 crew reported that there seemed to be a cloud associated with the target at all times. Whenever the crew tried to spot it visually it was always in a cloud. The target was lost to both the FAA radar and airborne radar at the same time 1:15 a.m. The Project Blue Book documents give exact dates and times of  24 radar sightings over a 9 month period of unidentified targets observed at Anderson AFB.  These were radar beacons with no known or identifiable source and were noted by Guam FAA Controllers, using FPS-20 Surveillance radar since October 1965. FPS-6 Height Finder radar and an APS-59 airborne radar were also involved. Phenomena occurrence times were Oct. 65 (one), Nov. 65 (two), Dec.65 (one), Mar. 66 (one), Apr. 66 (three), and June 66 (nineteen).  Interception Attempts were made on June 23, 1966 by KC-135 and C-97 aircraft.

Summary: Charlotte Horsfall woke to hear a humming motor-like sound, and saw a very large luminous sphere in the garden. Then she saw “a tall humanoid clothed in a bright silvery metallic material” standing by her bedroom window in the moonlight. The suit also covered the man’s head, but she could see his eyes looking at her. He raised his hand, and from it emanated a ray of light that shone on her chest, then her pelvis region. She felt nothing. Then the entity, the sphere, and the sound all disappeared.
