Date: Winter 1967
Location: Near Karup Denmark
Time: 2130
Summary: Just after coming home the witness heard a sound like the flapping wings of geese. For a few minutes she followed the sound, which went towards the neighbor’s farm. Looking towards the farm the sound disappeared; instead lights similar to a roundabout were lit in the upper part of a large object. It seemed to have been “parked” by three beings, similar to humans that could be seen through a window the size of a man. The beings were busy “setting something up inside the object.” The witness was not frightened, but her 4-year old daughter who was with her began screaming and they went back inside the house.

Date: December 10 1967
Location: Near Adelphi Maryland
Time: 0115A
Summary: College student Tom Monteleone was driving alone outside of Washington DC. As he was crossing the then partially completed cutoff on Interstate 70, he saw a large object on the road directly ahead. At first he thought it was a tractor-trailer jackknifed across the road. Then he realized it was a bone white reflective object shaped like an egg and standing on four legs. As he pulled to a stop a few feet from the object he could make out two figures standing next to the craft. One of them walked to his car with a broad grin on his face. He was about 5-feet, ten inches tall, wore light blue coveralls, thick soled boots and he had a ruddy suntanned complexion with large eyes “like thyroid eyes.” The grin remained fixed on his face throughout the episode. “Do not be afraid of me,” he said several times in an audible voice. His name, he said, was Vadig. He spoke with the witness for several minutes, asking ordinary questions. Finally he said pointedly, ‘I’ll see you in time,” and walked back to the object. A small door opened and a metal ladder folded down. A hand reached out and helped Vadig aboard, and then the object rose silently into the air and disappeared.

Location: Near North Lansing New York
Time: 1930
Summary: Rita Malley, driving home to Ithaca from Auburn, on Route 34, saw red lights in her rearview mirror that she first thought were on a police car; then they passed her and she saw that they were on a disc “about the size of a box-car.” As the object hovered ahead of her at about telephone pole height, her car stopped and the electrical system went out. The object was domed, elliptical in shape with square red and green lights or windows, a white dome, and a white beam of light that shone from its center to the ground. It lit up the inside of the car with a blood red color. The car was displaced from the side of the highway up an embankment and into a field along the side of the road. She became hysterical and she shouted for her son, but he “seemed to be in a trance.” For ten or 15 minutes she sat in the car, which would not start; the horn would not work and her lights, although dimmed, did not go out altogether. While she was in this situation, she heard a humming sound and then a “chorus of voices,” which told her that her son would remember nothing of the experience, and informed her that a friend of hers had just been killed in an automobile accident—statements that she later found to be true. Eventually she got the car started and “fled without looking back.”

The object hovered nearby at telephone-pole height. The car experienced EM effects (engine and lights failure). A humming sound, and “voices” were heard.

Summary: The main witness had stopped his vehicle outside a deserted mansion in order to clean the windshield. His girlfriend meanwhile remained in the car. He suddenly noticed a very acrid smell. He went back into the car and then noticed a strange figure looking at them from nearby. The humanoid was about four foot six inches tall with an oblong shaped luminous head. The odor seemed to come from his body. The figure approached and put an arm on the roof of the car. At this point the witnesses drove away at high speed.

Date: December 22 1967
Location: Point Pleasant West Virginia
Time: late afternoon
Summary: Soon after the local Silver Bridge had tragically collapsed killing dozens, Mary Hyre, a local newspaper stringer sat in her office sifting through the list of casualties, when two strangers walked in the office. They seemed almost like twins, both were short, with dark complexions, & somewhat Oriental in appearance. Both wore black overcoats. They seemed only interested on the UFO activity in the area and asked several peculiar questions, including: “What would you do if someone did order you to stop writing about flying saucers?” Mrs Hyre did not see them leave. Later that afternoon another stranger walked into the office. He was slightly built, about five feet-seven inches tall, with black piercing eyes and unruly black hair. His complexion was even darker that the previous two visitors & he also looked Oriental. His hands were especially unusual, with unduly long tapering fingers. He wore a cheap looking ill-fitting suit, and his tie was knotted in an odd fashion way. He did not wear an overcoat, despite the fierce cold outside. He spoke in a peculiar stammering monotone and argued with Mrs Hyre about UFO’s. He soon left and later visited the home of several local witnesses.

Summary: Eight witnesses saw 6-7 lights move across the sky one after the other (procession), spaced 30 seconds apart and each following the same path. Their brightness was comparable to Venus and their color was orange. Small twinkling lights, dropping vertically, seemed to fall from several of them, and some of the main lights dimmed or went out while some flew off over the horizon.

Location: Between Ashland & Lincoln Nebraska
Time: night
Summary: Gary Lambert, a student from Omaha, was driving home at Christmas when he saw a dimly outlined object with a row of lights hovering over an underpass; the sighting precipitated a number of vivid dreams, in which he believed he had somehow been “contacted” by the beings aboard the object, and that he may have experienced an actual abduction, the memory of which was erased from his mind. There was no evidential proof of such an abduction that the witness was able to provide.
