Date: Fall 1966
Location: Southern Arkansas, exact location not given
Time: unknown
Summary: The six-year old witness was in the backyard when a large spherical object appeared to come out of nowhere. It apparently landed and several beings described as huge, heavily muscled, bipedal, and resembling pterodactyl like creatures emerged out of the craft. The beings communicated with the witness and invited him inside the craft. There he was shown a squid like creature in a large purple crystal that was apparently used for its biological energy field, or aura. This assisted the aliens in their interdimensional travels. They also told the witness that they came from a race called the “Sestis.”

Summary: Driving after dark, Mr. Sanborn heard a sewing machine like sound and then saw a dark basin-shaped object, 80 ft wide, tilted at a 45 degree angle, which crossed the road. It then turned so that he could see in the tilted basin a horizontal gold-lit dome, at the center of which was “a large man,” at least 9 ft tall. After re-crossing the road the UFO came to a stop hovering 5 ft from the ground, and another occupant walked from the center to the edge of the dome. Both occupants wore long black overcoats and broad rimmed hats. Sanborn drove past it; he had it in view for 5 or 6 minutes in all. Afterwards the 78-year old witness experienced a wasting illness, losing more than 50 lb and requiring B12 treatment.

Summary: 15-year old Frank Earp was playing with two friends beside a disused canal. He admits that they were looking for UFOs. As darkness came, a mist began to rise from the watercourse. This was not unusual. But then a cloud, the size of a fairground dodgem car detached itself in the shape of a doughnut (without a central hole). It drifted towards them. Becoming disturbed they set off for home, quickly breaking into a trot as the apparently intelligent “cloud” pursued them. They could all see it, glowing inside with a strange luminescence. As they approached the edge of the village they decided to stop. Frank was delegated to confront the intruder for they were now close enough to home and could escape, should anything go wrong. Frank turned to find the cloud just 20 feet away. He tried to ask if it was friend or foe, but his words were cut short by one of his friends, clearly terrified, tapping his shoulder and urging, “When I say run—run!” He looked ahead into the gloom and understood the reason for this fear. For there stood a 6-foot furry figure, silhouetted in front of the glowing object. In claw like hands it gripped two red “pencils” and its legs faded into nothingness. The third boy stood only inches from the creature. As the other two fled he called after them, bemused. It later transpired that although he was almost touching the figure he had not seen it. But he had seen the cloud

Time:  late night
Summary: A young couple was parked in a rural and isolated area, when a powerful white bright light suddenly appeared. The man started the car and attempted to drive away from the area, he crossed over an old steel bridge and realized that the road led to a wooded field. He turned the car around and accelerated. As they drove away they both saw two gray colored figures, short with large slanted eyes and what appeared to be a square “emblem” on the chest area. The figures did not move and just stood by the dirt road watching the car. As the witnesses left the area, both smelled a very pungent “metallic” odor resembling sulfur.

Date: early September 1966
Location: Rockville, Maryland
Time: evening
Summary: The main witness, Mary Cozzens heard shouts from the neighbors and her family outside. Running she watched a huge dark metallic disc-shaped object descending slowly over the area. It had blinking orange-white lights blinking along its perimeter. Helicopters seemed to be following the object but these soon leveled off and left. The craft then hovered silently as everyone including Cozzens and her brothers and mother ran into the house and watched the object from the window. Soon the orange blinking lights detached themselves from the main object and began to land. Terrified the witness hid among the house including Mary who hid in the shower stall. Before she ran into the bathroom she saw several short humanoid figures coming into her yard. As she hid in the shower stall long skinny fingers pulled back the curtain and a tall thin being with large dark eyes looked at her reassuring her that she would be all right that they were there to help. The being was apparently a female and held a long thin device with a small ball shaped object at the end of it. The being wiped a gooey substance on the back of the witness neck and inserted the ball shaped tip into her nose. Her next memory was of floating up the basement stairs, inches above the floor accompanied by her little brother that was being escorted by two little men. She saw her mother screaming in fear begging her not to go with them. But she assured her mother that she was going to be ok. Once inside the object she was accompanied by the tall thin humanoid female most of the time. She was shown what appeared to be star-maps and other apparatuses onboard the object that apparently had to do with the propulsion system. She was apparently given numerous information that she has slowly remembered throughout the years. Her and her brother were eventually brought back to their home around 2200. Most of the area neighbors could not remember the incident days after and Mary suffered from periods of levitation soon after the encounter.

Summary: The pregnant witness had stayed up late doing some laundry and had falling asleep when she was suddenly startled awake. At first she laid still trying to discern if someone had entered the house before she made any move. Then in the doorway between the boy’s room and her bedroom she saw a glowing white bright orange globe floating about 4 ft above the floor. It appeared to be so hot that it was almost totally white. Slowly she sat up. The object emitted a low hum and when she sat up, it conveyed a mental threat of electrocution if she moved any more (!). She felt it scan her children with beams that she did not consciously saw. Two of the boys were in the room it was in and it scanned her pregnant belly, then a child in another room. It seemed to convey that it discounted the child in the other room, a girl, but took note of the 2 sleeping boys and the infant in the womb, telling her that the baby was a boy. The it began to dim, turning from white to bright orange, to a faded dark orange, becoming transparent, then to gray and finally it disappeared. The witness then got up, looked around but saw nothing, then lie back in bed and quickly fell asleep again.

Location. Monserrat, Catalunya, Spain
Date: September 1966
Time: 1400
Jean Soler and several friends had been out camping in an isolated area when Soler decided to go fetch some water at a nearby stream. As he crossed some fields he noticed a bizarre object that appeared to be on the ground in a clearing area not to far away. As he approached the object he noticed that it was a white elongated cylinder shaped contraption, about six meters in length and about 1 meter & a half in height, it was roughly shaped like a bullet or torpedo and rested on two rectangular supports. He saw two lights on the object that seemed to dim as he approached. On top of the object he could see two transparent individual domes separated from each other by about 3 meters. These were opened and he could see what appeared to be black leather like seats inside. Suddenly, from behind the object two men appeared. These two wore shiny white outfits that covered them from head to toe, and helmets with transparent visors. Their suits appeared to be slightly inflated. The men moved as if they were tired or had been sitting for a long time. They stared at the witness with a surprised look on their faces. He described them as tall, about 1.85meters in height, Eurasian features, blond haired, blue eyes, and light tanned skin. At this point a farmer was approaching the scene from a nearby field (it was later determined that he was the owner of the fields). Using his instincts Soler decides to run from the area brushing quickly past the men, looking back he saw them boarding the strange craft which floated up silently and began following Soler. Looking back he could see the two transparent cabins and in each of one, a seated figure staring at him. Running down a path, with the craft closely behind him, Soler suddenly felt an electric shock in his body, causing him a severe pain on the right side of the head, neck, and back. Stunned he stopped, feeling confused, he stopped and begged for the craft to go on and leave him alone. Looking up one more time he saw the two men again which seemed to exchanged a signal between them, at this point the craft rose up at a 90 degree angle shooting away to the nearby pine forest emitting a loud buzzing sound. It was quickly lost from sight behind a nearby mountain. Later when he returned to the site of the landing, Soler found some footprints and other ground traces.
