2:05 a.m. EDT. In Collier County, southwest Florida, vicinity of Naples, a shaken motorist made a statement to Naples police about his car being approached from behind by a “large white light” that came within about 100-150 feet of his car, changing color to blue-green. He tried to flee, but the UFO zoomed past him making a “whooshing” noise, and circled around to the left and disappeared. (NICAP notes, police statement in Donald E. Keyhoe Archives.)

Location:   Marisela-Caracas Venezuela
Time:   1652
Summary:    A man observed the landing of an oval object and 2 beings, which came out of the object through a system of light beams. They used strange instruments to examine a number of objects, especially plants. They were 6 ft tall, had oversized heads, and appeared bright & “transparent.” Their eyes were slanted, their shoulders very broad. They wore no apparent weapon, but their belts were very wide & emitted light rays. They did not touch anything without first illuminating it with these beams. They went back aboard the craft “as if carried by the light.”

Location. Whiteman AFB Missouri

Date: mid-May 1966
Time: daylight
At least 11 security guards posted around the site and the base and other independent witnesses reported an object descending in broad daylight into the woods, damaging tree limbs and branches on the way down. It was circular and according to rumor it landed on four structured legs (several children with their parents) that were about 100 to 200 ft from it witnessed this. As they approached the area they were able to see a small humanoid entering the base of the object. The craft quickly ascended vertically and moved away rapidly. The witnesses contacted the tower and security teams were dispatched to cordon the area off. According to the security guards, the vegetation was burnt at the center of four imprints, which were several inches deep and about a foot square. The base photographer was ordered to take pictures of the sight; his negatives and photos were confiscated. The base was a missile silo location at the time. In one occasion a motion alarm went off at one of the missile sites and two strike teams were sent there and observed a hovering circular object with many lights on it. It was at least 50 feet from the site and the strike teams experienced radio interference. They asked their commander what they should do and they were told that “if anything came out shoot it” after several anxious minutes the object flew silently away.

Location:  Cordoba Spain 
Time:   0730A
Summary:    Farmer Manuel Hernandez was returning home from the fields walking on Los Morales County Road when at about 100 meters away from him he observed a disc shaped object. The craft was metallic and had a protruding rim that reflected the early morning sunlight. Carefully, he approached to within several meters of the object, which appeared to be about 3 meters in diameter. Suddenly out of nowhere and without any opening becoming visible on the object, several bizarre beings appeared. The humanoids flew around the object and over the nearby field. Afraid, Hernandez began moving away from the area and noticed that the creatures appeared to be short in stature with bird-like wing-like protrusions and gray-green skin color. He could not distinguish any facial features, but did see that the strange humanoids wore dark coveralls and transparent glass helmets that covered their heads. Terrified he ran all the way home. Later, upon returning to the site with several family members, the object and the bizarre creatures were nowhere in sight.

12:30 p.m. PDT. A newspaper editor and office manager were called outdoors to see a grayish-green object high in the northern sky changing shape from rectangular, or roughly diamond-shaped, to domed disc. The object, apparently metallic, was reflecting sunlight. Haze-like heat waves surrounded it. For 15 minutes the object moved around lazily, then suddenly sped off to the northeast and disappeared. The editor compared the departure speed to that of a jet aircraft.

4:15 p.m. PDT. A woman driving in Temple City saw a strange object approach from the southwest, hover and bob around. She stopped and observed the object at relatively close range, at treetop level across a wide highway. “It was the shape of two geranium pots put together with the bands in the center,” she said. Although the object was clearly outlined, there was a slight haze surrounding it. The color was bright green. Flashes of sunlight reflected off the surface, giving it a metallic sheen. On the body were what appeared to be a row of louvers and an antenna-like projection. After several minutes the object climbed to the northeast, observed as it moved away by employees of a nearby restaurant who were alerted by the witness. (Los Angeles NICAP Subcommittee report.)
