Date: early April 1967
Location: Moulton Iowa
Time: evening
Summary: Jimmy D and his wife, a young farm couple, were driving home when they saw 3 strange men standing in a ploughed field; as they approached, these figures literally faded from sight. The couple, perplexed, turned around and drove back past the site, this time observing 7 men, who likewise disappeared from view. Later in the evening the couple saw an object, or something “like a dust cloud” coming from the same field that frightened so they fled to town where they stayed for the next several days.

Evening. A couple saw an object with a short cylindrical body, dome-shaped top, and flat bottom (turret shape). The top glowed blue-green, sides white, and bottom red. The object had a semi-circle of white body lights that suddenly glowed and blinked around the upper rim. It performed various maneuvers, once apparently splitting in two and rejoining. Eventually it sped up and crossed the road in front of the car. (Moberly Monitor-Index and Evening Democrat, 7/14/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Summary: Jean Sheldon was out driving in a rural area and had stopped for a breath of air, when she saw a 50 ft disc surmounted by a glowing red dome. It descended, and an opening appeared in the underside, through which she was levitated on board. Here she encountered three naked male humanoids with green eyes. They told her they wanted to mate and she had “very exciting” sex with them for over an hour. Although this was supposed to indicate they were biologically compatible, Jean did not become pregnant.

Summary: The witness, Shane Sia or Kurz who had been seeing UFOs maneuvering over the area for the past several nights, had gone to bed after seeing another object. She suddenly felt paralyzed and next thing she remembers is being awakened by a bright light outside her window and a loud humming sound. Her next memory is waking up with her foot covered with mud, her eyes swollen shut, and a triangular shaped burn mark on her abdomen. Later under hypnosis she remembered being somehow taken into an egg shaped gray metallic craft with lights around a revolving rim. She found herself inside an octagon shaped room with lights that seemed to emanate from all around her. She was then placed on a black slab like table and is unable to move. Later she sees a being with an oval shaped face; very light skin and large black almond shaped eyes. The being apparently communicates by using telepathy and tells the witness that she would not be harmed.

Summary: The witness had walked out to his terrace under a light rain and upon opening the terrace door he was confronted by a hovering metallic disc shaped object about 80 meters in diameter. In front of the object stood three men wearing tight fitting overalls. They appeared to have been looking at a caged bird nearby. The men were human like and from the center of their chests they emitted a green beam of light. They made an awkward hand gesture towards the witness upon seeing him. The witness watched unable to move as the three beings entered the object through an opening in the bottom, they went up in a beam of light as if walking up an invisible ladder. The object then departed at high speed.

7:45 p.m. EST. A justice of the peace saw a dark-colored disc, estimated to be 30 feet across, that flew over his vehicle at an altitude of about 30 feet, then stopped and hovered to one side. When over the vehicle, it looked as if it had lights behind painted black glass. The object emitted sparks, had a humming sound like an electric motor which grew louder as the object left, and had a sulfur/camphorated oil odor. When the object left at tremendous speed, the car felt pulled toward it (gravitational effect) and then was rocked. The witness had physiological effects. (Keyhoe and Lore, 1969b, p.1; U.F.O.

Location: Tortuguero, Puerto Rico
Time: between 11 and 11:15 a.m
Summary: UFO Phenomenon in Puerto Rico APRO’S Representative in Puedo Rico, Sebastian Robiou L., recently sent Headquarters his full .reports on several investigations into UFO incidents on that Caribbean island. Below are summaries of two of his reports. The latest incident took place between ll and l1:15 a.m, (local time) on the 6 of April, 1967, near Tortuguero, while two Cessna 150 aircraft were flying under unlimited visibility conditions. Aircraft A contained a flight instructor, whose name cannot be published, and flight student Alvaro Munoz. The names of the instructor and student aboard aircraft B cannot be published. Aircraft A and B were flying in formation at 3,000 feet in an east-northeast direction, north of Vega Baja, on the nodh coast of Puerto Rico- Aircraft A was slightly ahead and 1,000 feet above aircraft B. Wh e student Munoz was practicing “blind flying,” his instructor observed an unidentified object behind and below aircraft B. He called the pilot of aircraft B, who then commenced a l80o turn, at which the UFO dropped sharply (estimated about 200 feet above sea level and passed under aircraft b without the pilot seeing it . Aircraft A continued its normal route and the pilot observed the UFO pass him on the north side, He pointed the object out to Munoz, who exclaimed (in Spanish): “My God! That’s a flying saucer!” The pilot then told Munoz not to loose sight of the object while he piloted the Cessna.Munoz got a good look at it as it passed on their north side, about 1,500 feet below them, while the pilot was attempting a tum to brine the object closer, The descending turn increased the speed of the Cessna F tom 90 mph to l4o mph, while the UFO appeared to be moving at least double their speed. The pilot of Aircraft A leveled the Cessna out and the UFO made a sudden 90o turn without any pre-deceleration and disappeared. The pilot of aircraft B was meanwhile terminating his tum: neither the pilot or the student aboard a lcmft B saw the UFO, The total sighting lasted between 15 and 20 seconds The. he two witnesses aboard atcraft A described the UFO as “oval, not round” and with a dull-white, metal color, Comparing its approximate size to the Cessna B, the UFO was estimated to be 60 feet long (3 times that of a Cessna 150). It had an apparent size of 8 inches at arm’s length. The two witnesses did not observe any other structural details on the object but they described it as” solid” and following “intelligent maneuvers, not erratic.” Upon landing at San Juan, Munoz called his wife to tell her about the sighting, which she confirmed to Representative Rabiou. Munoz, who is now a flight instructor with the Isla Grande Flying School and Service Corp., says that the Federal Aviation Administ.ation (FAA) gathered data on the sighting after it happened, but stated that they had not tracked any unidentified object at the time. Representative Robiou, who calls this “one of the most interesting UFO cases in Puerto Rico,” notes that the pilot-instructor of Aircraft A does not want publicity; Munoz is more coopemtive. Neither took UFOs seriously before their observation. Mr. Robiou’s conclusion is: “If we accept the statements of the witnesses as true, as they seem to be, we cannot find any explanation within our frame of knowledge. The object seen by the witnesses deserves the title: Unidentified Flying Object.”

Summary: Mabel McDaniel, John Keel, and two other women went to a hill, when they spotted the usual reddish glow on a nearby hill. A second one popped up a short distance from the first. Keel flashed his light at them but nothing happened. So he climbed a fence and walked into a field to try to get a closer look. As he crossed the field he suddenly noticed a pale bluish ball of light hovering high in the trees of an orchard behind the nearby farmhouse. The light moved about from tree to tee as though it were following Keel’s movements. He flashed his light at it and it flared with a dazzling brilliance, dimmed, and vanished. The lights on the southern ridge also brightened for a moment and then went out. Coming back to the car, Keel found all three women in a very frightened state. Later they related how they had seen a very tall man in the field, which climbed over a fence then crossed behind their vehicle. Terrified they locked the doors and ran the windows up.

Dusk. Confirmed by MUFON Field Investigator and State Section Director Eldon E. Ervin.  A building contractor, his wife and three children were traveling east on Interstate 80 when the wife first no­ticed a bright object to the north, just north of the intersectio of U.S. Highway 80 and Nebraska Highway 281 and adjacent to a Drive-In theatre. The observers stopped the car, got out, and watched for 15-20 minutes while the object fluttered across the Cornhusker Ordinance Plant some 3 miles west of the theatre. At times the object wobbled as low as 40 feet from the ground. Later it disappeared to the north. The family drove as far north as Silber Creek but could not sight it again. Upon returning to their home, they called the Grand Island Weather Bureau. They were told an investigator would be out in the morning, but none appeared. The local police were also called, but no one came to investigate. (Credit: Elmer A. Krai, State Director for Nebraska)

9:30 p.m. PST. While driving, a woman saw an amber-colored object shaped like a disc with a tall dome. She estimated that it was at a height of two telephone poles and as large as a car. The object looked like plastic and had vertical risers evenly spaced around a “conning tower.” A bright curved surface appeared to be hanging from a “brim which extended from rim to rim” of what looked like a “top hat.” The object hovered, moved slowly against the wind, passing directly overhead, hovered over lava beds where it emitted two fireballs with sparkles, then two more a few minutes later. Finally it went dark and disappeared. (Ricks letter, NICAP files; The U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 1.)

Two young boys saw a dark gray object overhead; one ran home, the other hid in a ditch. The object descended and put out three legs as if to land, then retraced them and moved out over the Kattegat; as it passed over the shore, it threw out some “boxes.” Hovering low over the water, the object lowered a box, or car on an arm thick cable, and 8 small humanoid figures emerged from the large object and descended on the cable. They were the same size as the boy and all but one wore striped suits and had scuba like packs on their backs form, which tubes led to their mouths; the eight occupants wore a blue uniform and had no pack. They all wore striped caps and had lights on their shoulders, and carried objects like binoculars or cameras. They waved to the boy before the object disappeared. On the shore was later found a lump of strange material, which was analyzed and found to be an unprecedented mixture of substances.

A motorist saw a glowing object overhead, suddenly his car engine stalled, and a smaller circular metallic object landed besides the road. His car radio, which had been turned off, began to broadcast in a strange language. A tiny metallic robot like figure appeared in the doorway of the object. It then dug up some dirt and placed it inside the craft. The doorway then closed, the object then turned a bright red color and rose into the sky emitting a whirring sound. It appeared to join the large glowing craft overhead.

8:45 p.m. EST. Independent witnesses in six locations saw a glowing object with lighted ports. A pharmacist saw and followed the object as it flew up the Ohio River at an estimated 500 feet altitude. The object circled back and emitted two huge light beams to the ground from its bottom. This appeared to be a reaction to his flashing his headlights (light reaction). Three miles away a boy in a pony wagon crashed when the animal bucked as it saw the object. Another woman said that her dogs were upset when the object passed (animal reactions). She sketched a round shape with two cone-shaped protuberances sticking out from the sides of the white ball. These protuberances contained rows of porthole-like openings. A farmer reported that the craft hovered above a field and shone its lights down. He said the lights were blindingly bright. Several witnesses, including a sheriff, reported a bright yellow light with objects protruding from it. Yet another witness reported an object that stopped for 2 minutes, then reversed direction without turning and flew directly overhead at an estimated altitude of  400-500 feet. He reported that bright lights were coming from windows on the protuberances, and a row of steady red lights was visible around the object (body lights). TV interference (EM effect) was reported by two people. (Letter from pharmacist, 4/21/67, NICAP files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 6; Keyhoe and Lore, 1969b, pp. 41-42.)

The conductor of a train, Enrique R Galimberti and another crewmember saw what appeared to be bright multi-colored lights about 120 meters away from the tracks. Thinking it was a fire Galimberti stopped the train and both armed with fire extinguishers attempted to approach the area. As they approached the area they saw what appeared to be multicolored lights moving around in a circular motion, both then observed behind the light what appeared to be a square metallic object over 3 meters in width and about the same in height. It had several lighted windows around its edge. At the front it had what appeared to be a “rotating wheel” that emitted multicolored flashes of light. Around the object several short humanoid figures were walking about. These were wearing silvery gray shiny uniforms, appeared to be bareheaded and appeared to be carrying what resembled a “rifle” or weapon on their shoulders. At one point the witnesses used the train horn to observe any reaction from the figures but there was none. Another railway employee, Salvador Pomidoro reported seeing the square metallic object on the ground in the same location about 15 minutes before.

Summary: While driving home from work, Charles D, saw a large round, blue white-lighted object descend to earth in a wooded area. After arriving home, he notified the sheriff’s office, and drove back to the site with his wife and children, and accompanied by the deputy sheriff. While Mrs Scott and the children waited in the car, the witness and the officers searched the wooded area, becoming separated. Although the deputy found nothing, the witness encountered a craft resting on small legs in a marshy area; standing beside it was a medium sized man. The witness called out, “Hello,” but received no response; he repeated the greeting and this time received a mental impression of the warning, “Get away from here!” He turned and fled to his car, badly frightened and in an agitated state; at home, when he told his wife about the encounter, he was unable to account for his great alarm.
