Summary: Dean Fagerstrom, a soldier at the time, was sitting in his apartment working on the lottery numbers sequence when he suddenly had a feeling that he was not alone. He walked around and did not find anyone, then returned back to his seat and resumed working on the board. As he looked at the board a human-like face began to appear, the face began filling up the board and became clearer, now he was able to see two faces instead of one, those of a man and a woman. A bluish shimmer surrounded the faces. The man’s face had tawny hair and the woman’s hair was slightly darker and shorter. Both beings then communicated by voice with the witness identifying themselves and stating that there would be further contacts.

Summary: Mrs. Ralph Butler and an unidentified lady friend were standing in a field outside of town watching a familiar sight—what they called little flashers: bright, blinking lights that danced around the sky almost every night. Suddenly one of the objects descended rapidly and hovered at the far end of the field where they stood, swinging back and forth a few feet above the ground. Colored lights flickered around its glowing rim. One of the women let out a little gasp and crumpled to her knees in a trance-like daze. Mrs. Butler, reached for her, but she was immobile, her head dipped down. A strange voice, stilted and metallic, came spasmodically from her lips. “What …is …your…time…cycle?” the voice asked. Mrs. Butler recovered from her surprise and tried to explain how we measured minutes, hours, and days. “What…constitutes…a…day…and…what…constitutes…a…night?” the voice continued. “A day is approximately twelve hours long—and a night is twelve hours long,” Mrs. Butler replied. There were a few more innocuous questions, and then the other woman came out of the trance.

Time: evening
Woodrow Derenberger was driving his panel truck home when a low-flying dark object about 35 ft wide, cut in front of him & forced him to stop; it hovered a foot above the ground, only 20 ft ahead. The object had a profile similar to a kerosene lamp chimney flattened on the bottom side. A door opened and a smiling man of dark complexion descended, who wore a topcoat over shiny blue trousers. Without opening his mouth, he addressed Derenberger telepathically, asking him to open his window. For the next 10 minutes he conducted a telepathic conversation, first asking Derenberger’s name & saying that his own was ” Indrid Cold.” He adjured Derenberger not to think of him as an “alien,” and concluded by saying “We will see you again.” After admitting Mr. Cold, the UFO rose vertically and disappeared.

Location. Gallipolis Ohio

Date: November 2 1966
Time: 2000
The witness was out behind her building getting ready to go home when there was a sudden flash directly above her. A large cylinder shape object then appeared and landed on the nearby parking lot. The object was completely silent and the witness was unable to move as two men descended from the object and walked towards her. The men were normal looking but heavily tanned with pointed noses, pointed chins, and high cheekbones, they wore coverall like uniforms. They asked the witness several mundane questions using a singsong high-pitched voice; they then walked back to their craft, which took off at high speed. The witness lived in a farm and had been having problems with missing cattle around the same time.

Time: night
Summary: Two men traveling by car on highway 77 watched an elongated object descend from the sky directly in front of their vehicle. They stopped the car and saw a man emerged from the object and walk over to them. The man was human looking and was grinning broadly. He was wearing a black coat and kept his arms folded out of sight under his armpits. The black-garbed stranger asked them several pointless questions before returning to the dark cylinder shaped craft, which quickly rose and disappeared into the sky. This incident occurred on the same night as the Woodrow Derenberger contact-landing case in the same general area.

Summary: Nov. 4, 1966; Alton, VA
10:30 p.m. EST. While watching television, a woman saw her set experience severe interference, then black out completely (EM effects). She glanced out the window and saw a huge red light that appeared to be rotating behind a glassy surface of some kind. Above the light was a very large object surrounded by a halo of white light. The entire phenomenon was close to the ground when first sighted, then rose to a height of about 100 feet, then quickly descended to its original position. It bobbed up and down in this fashion three times, finally moving across the road, under some utility lines, and glided away across a field. (U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. HI, No. 11, Jan.-Feb. 1967, p. 3)

Summary: Mrs Kathleen glanced out the kitchen door and saw a lighted object, which moved toward her & hovered 50 ft away, 20-30 ft up. It was a big as a house, & shaped like a ball with a ring around it (Saturn shaped); in the middle were brightly white-lit windows. Kathleen could see in these windows one man & two women, who appeared to be on different floors. The man, muscular in build, was staring directly at her, which frightened her; he was manipulating something like a steering wheel. The woman who was on the lower level handed him a small object “like a coup of coffee.” After about 3 minutes the object began to move westward, then rose steeply, emitting a multicolored exhaust, at a speed greater then a jet.

Summary: Photographed by barber Ralph Ditter at his house in Roseville, a suburb of Zanesville, Ohio, in 1966. For years, Ditter exhibited this and another UFO picture taken at the same time in his barber shop. The Condon Committee examined both exhaustively, and concluded they were faked. Ditter failed to respond to requests for “clarification” of the differences between his account of the sighting and the apparent facts.

Summary: Newell Partridge was sitting at home when suddenly the TV blanked out. A real fine herringbone pattern appeared on the tube, and at the same time the set started a loud whining noise, winding up to a high pitch, peaking and breaking off, as if you were on a musical scale. It sounded like a generator winding up. Outside on the porch, his dog Bandit began wailing. Partridge picked up a flashlight and went outside to investigate. The dog was sitting at the end of the porch, howling down toward the hay barn in the bottom. Partridge shined the light in that direction, and it picked up two red circles, or eyes, which looked like bicycle reflectors. There was something about the eyes that was difficult to explain. The eyes were huge, plainly visible at a distance of 150 yards. As soon as the flashlight picked out the “eyes” Bandit snarled and ran toward them. A “cold chill” swept over the man and he felt a wave of fear, which kept him from following the dog. That night he slept with a loaded gun beside his bed. The next day he went looking for his dog. They found tracks. At the approximate position of the “eyes” he found a large number of dog tracks. The tracks were going in a circle, as if the dog had been chasing his tail. Then the tracks vanished, the dog was never seen again.

Margaret Marchute saw on the ground a luminous object that seemed to be made of polished metal. After about half an hour, a red flame shot upward from the object; then 2 very bright lights approached it from the distance; when these were near it, something like a luminous balloon sprang up from it & hovered in the air. At this point she could see 3 or 4 figures moving about the large object on the ground, which was pulsating from dim to bright. They were dressed in a “gold shiny material.” She watched for about 2 hours before going to bed.

Location. Gaffney South Carolina
Date: November 17 1966
Time: 0400A
Two police officers, C Hutchins & A Huskey, were driving in an outlying section of Gaffney known as the West Buford Street Extension when as they neared a right angle bend in the road, they suddenly saw a metallic object directly in front of them. This object was descending when they first saw it, Hutchins said, and was about twenty feet above the ground. He described it as being spherical, like a ball, with a wide, flat rim around it. There were no lights or portholes visible on it. It was completely dark, reflecting a dull gold color in the headlights of the police car. The car did not stall. As the object settled to within a few feet of the ground, both men gout out of their car in a state of benumbed amazement. Later Hutchins estimated that the object must have been about twenty ft in diameter. A small door suddenly opened noiselessly on the underside of the sphere, he said, and a short ladder, four to six feet long, dropped down. White light poured out of the opening, but neither man could see anything in the interior. A figure appeared in the doorway, descended the ladder, and walked slowly and deliberately toward the two police officers. When the figure reached a point about fifteen to twenty feet from the two men, it stopped. “He didn’t move stiffly,” officer Hutchins said. “He moved just like anybody else, but kind of slow…like he was taking his time. He wasn’t scared of us or anything like that.” In appearance, the humanoid was about the size of a twelve-year-old boy, maybe four feet. He wore no helmet or headgear and was dressed in a gold suit with no buttons or zippers. His costume was shiny, like metal, in the reflection of the headlights, it was not self-luminous. The humanoid asked numerous questions and ignored the witnesses when they asked any questions. Hutchins could not remember seeing the feet of the creature. It was standing on high grass and the feet must have been hidden. Both men could not really remember the full context of the “conversation”. Hutchins claimed the alien spoke perfect English, “Didn’t have any accent or anything. He acted like he knew exactly what he was saying and doing…didn’t make any quick moves or false moves. He just stood there and talked to the witnesses.” He wanted to know why both me were dressed alike. His speech was very precise. He pronounced each work very carefully. When asked where he was from he just laughed. The meeting was brief, perhaps only 2 or 3 minutes. Then, Hutchins say, the creature announced, “I…will…return…in…two…days” he turned, walked slowly back to the ladder and climbed into the object. The door closed quietly and the craft began to whirr, a soft whirring sound, like an engine with a muffler on it. The object rose slowly and vanished into the sky. A local councilman found numerous footprints at the site where the little man had stood. There was no return visit by the alien.
