Date:  August 1968
Location: Near Detroit, Oregon
Time: afternoon
Summary: The main witness that was 8-years old at the time was playing were her two sisters in a creek while the family camped nearby. All of the sudden she could see that the sun had suddenly changed position, the shadows had moved from what they were a few seconds ago, and time had unaccountably gone by. Her mother then came down and yelled at the girls; apparently she had been looking for them and wanted to know why they had left the younger sister alone. Her mother informed her that they had been looking for them for about 45 minutes. The 8-year old witness could only remember that somebody had told her that it would be all right, that the baby would be sleeping and would not wake up. When the main witness was 12-years of age she was hypnotically regressed and was able to remember some of what had occurred on that day, she described being in a white room with white tables that were real cold, like metal and really bright lights and white astronaut-like figures that wore thin suits. These figures had really big heads and large black almond-shaped eyes, two holes for a nose and spoke to the witness via telepathy

Date:  August 1968
Location: Mojave Desert, California
Time: evening
Summary: While riding bikes and listening to the CB radio in the high desert area one evening the main witness heard a commotion on a nearby hill and heard someone yell “flying saucer!” Going up to look he noticed an aircraft down on the other side of the hill about 60 to 100 yards away. The object was sort of rounded. Its base was larger than its rounded top and it was sitting on three or four legs, which all had round feet. A door was opened—like a chopper door that folds out and down. The underside of the craft was lighted with a beige diffuse light. The door was open facing the witness and there was a yellowish light inside. There were three men outside doing something. One seemed to notice the witness. The men all looked to be in their twenties, had short blond hair and were dressed in what appeared to be a gray, silvery jumpsuit. After some minutes the men got back inside the object, the door closed in a normal manner, and it started an easy vertical take off. There was no noise as the object rose to about 40 ft up, turned off its bottom light and blue and red lights came on. The take off seemed to change the local air pressure considerably. The craft then shot away slowly into the night and vanished.

Location: Near Brasilia Brazil
Time: night
Summary: A group of individuals, under the leadership of General Alfredo Moacyr Uchoa, had taken up residence at the plantation of Wilson Da Silva, near the capital; several sightings were recorded and photograph taken. After five months of observations and as predicted by Da Silva, who had been in telepathic communication with the aliens, a brightly illuminated disc came down at the designated spot on his property, hovering 4 ft above the ground. The party of observers took photographs. As Da Silva left the group and walked toward the landing site, he saw a door open in the object and a normal sized man, wearing a blue coverall with a wide belt, descended. Upon his return to the group, Da Silva could remember nothing except the message he had received, which was, “We are peaceful. Your atomic experiments are causing an imbalance in our world.” The craft shot up into the sky while he was returning to the group. Additional contacts were claimed subsequently, into 1969.

Time: before noon
Summary: 17-year old local Andrzej (AKA Jedrek) Domaa was picking mushrooms in a nearby forest. As usual he planned to collect mushrooms and sell them during Sunday’s fete. When he entered the forest he was surprised at the abnormal silence around him. Anxious he rushed towards the fence of a local military garrison (OPK) but when he turned his head he spotted a strange woman standing about a dozen meters from him. From the waist up she looked quite normal but the rest of her body from the waist down was dwarfish in appearance. She was dressed in a tight-fitting uniform without buttons or zippers. Only her face was visible. She had neither lashes nor eyebrows. Her eyes were big, slanted and devoid of white. Despite of the unusual appearance of the eyes, these emanated a kind of “softness”. Her nose was tiny and her mouth resembled a small horizontal hole, she was about 160cm in height. For some time both Andrzej and the strange woman stared at each other and then she came closer and began to draw geometrical symbols on the ground. Then unexpectedly he fell asleep. In a “dream” he saw himself lying in something like a laboratory table. He was then placed inside some kind of device and then tubes were connected to him and he then levitated up in the air. The strange woman stood on the floor. Allegedly he then had sex with the alien woman. He later woke up on a field in the same location in which he had observed a strange “stain” on the sun’s surface. It was midday. He thought that he had hallucinated but then found strange footprints pressed on the soil. The footprints led to within the forest. When he went into the forest he found his bag. He claims that after the encounter he changed as a young man. He became more sensitive, and claims he was able to help the elderly. There was controversy related to this case as the witness claims that he had “children” from the extraterrestrial woman.

Summary:  Adrian Brinzei, an electronics engineer and automation specialist from Poliedri was in his car with his wife and son near the Bucium motel when, through the windscreen he saw, about 20-30m above the woods 5km away, a large shining object, the shape of a truncated cone. Both ends of this thing were emitting light, the top end much more strongly than the lower; this light being a dazzling white. They stopped and Adrian and his son got out of the car to get a better look, while his wife remained in the car. All three observed the object, the diameter of which was estimated to be 10m, drift downwards either into or behind the woods and disappear in a few seconds.

Time: 2:30 a.m
Summary: Another interesting incident in Puerto Rico took place on August 18, 1968, at 2′.3O a.m, at Ramey AFB, and involves Sgt. Thomas Carulli, who signed a statem€ nt for APRO. The statement, whic’ was obtained through APRO Field Inve. tigator John R. Artie, an Air Force member now stationed at Beale AFB in California, goes as follows: “At approximately August 18, 1968, /^. at approximately 2:30 a,m., off Bodnquen Beach, Ramey AFB, Puerto Rico, fifteen other security policemen and myself observed what was believed to be known as an unidentified flying object. “Visibility was unlimited. The UFO seemed to be rising from the ocean but when first seen it was appearing to be at a 45 degree angle above the surface and rising. While also rising it seemed to yavl to its sides emitting a very bright, almost florescent light which was similar to that of an unblinking strobe light. ward from within its structures. The reason why it seemed this way was because there appeared to be shuts or bars or (you could say) window panes. These struts were verticle and there were about six of them, They reminded me of the crown on the Statue of Liberty but their greatest width seemed to be in their center.”When it reached its zenith, which in itself appeared to be no more than 1500 ft, off the ground, it lingered there for a few minutes: all the while it emitted this light which lit up the whole area which before was in complete darkness “It was circular or sphere-like, more like if you held only your fingertips and your wrist together not letting the palms of your hands touch. In fact, if you would do this with your hands and turn your hands to your face with the fingers at eye level this is what the ufo most nearly looked like. “Its size was close to a half-dollar at arm’s length. It emitted no sound, Lights around us didn’t dim either. While in its zenith the UFO seemed to pulsate and fluxed from side to side or wobbled. Then another orb of light came from it. “This was a light about the size of a dime held at arm’s length. It stayed by the side of the first UFO, then it too fluxed or wobbled and shot straight upwards until it was nearly invisible. Then it just seemed to hang there almost indistinguishable from the other stars, After two or three more minutes passed, the first UFO wobbled, tumed on its side and darted upwards and outwards in a north-north-westerly direction until it disappeared. “This whole spectacular phenomenon took about 12-17 minutes in its entirety.

Summary:  Farmer Marius Carre was spreading hay on his field on the slope a hill, with his friend Paul Billard, from a tractor and cart when he noticed, on the slope of a small hill 3km away, to the left of the woods, a lozenge shaped stain. Paul also noticed this object, which he thought resembled a small white carriage. Not taking much notice, they carried on with their work and half an hour later drove their full cart down the road and returned with an empty one. As they were filling this they saw, coming from the direction of the white object, a luminous tube, which seemed to expand towards them, until, in about five or ten minutes its progress was stopped by a shrub hedge some 30-40m from them This tube was so brilliant that it was almost impossible for them to look at it. It was about 1-2m diameter and seemed to be composed of a spider’s web of luminous dots, such as used to make up analog TV pictures. Marius and Paul decided to carry on with their work and as they did this, the beam seemed to follow them, traversing 100m in 10 minutes. Then, in the same slow way that it had emerged, the tube retracted into the object, disappearing in 5-10 minutes. The object, which had been there for 45 minutes, was still there but now green in colour. Suddenly it disappeared and Paul now thought he saw it in the wood, looking like a little car standing vertically.

Summary: Mr. and Mrs Hector Davis were asleep in their camper when Mr. Davis awoke with a “suspicious feeling.” Looking toward a tree about 12 ft away he saw a small man 4.5 ft tall, in the tree approximately 6 ft off the ground. The being had long blond hair and bright blue eyes and was dressed in a one-piece suit of gray color, including gloves and shoes, and corrugated all over. He wore a kind of cap with an antenna, from which came a faint glow. Mr. Davis jumped up and the figure, who had been watching the sleeping couple, stared guiltily and floated from the tree, moving across the road 40 ft away, and about 2 ft off the ground, moving with a slight undulation, “legs swinging, like walking away, only not touching the ground.” He was lost to view in the distance. The encounter lasted approximately a minute. Mrs Davis was asleep throughout.

Summary:  Teacher and pioneer rancher Mrs Pearl Christianson had just arrived at her ranch and had stopped to open the gate when she saw a large silver disc, trailing sparks, sat on the south side of Brown’s peak. She sat in her car, observing this object for 5 minutes. As she went through her gate she saw a second, very shiny, gold object. She watched the objects, which were mostly stationary but occasionally moved simultaneously, through field glasses, although the brightness hurt her eyes, until they disappeared about midnight. Mrs Millard Mayfield, operator of the Gleeson Museum, also saw a light on the peak that night. When the two ladies investigated the saddle between Brown Peak and Turquoise Mountain they found the rocks were too hot to touch and a strange acid odour Other investigators found cactus burnt at the base but not at the top, others were totally carbonised. Burnt spots 10-20 cm diameter were also found.

Summary: Awakened by a flapping noise outside, hospital receptionist Maria Cintra opened the door to find a “foreign looking woman” wearing white light colored, shiny clothes and a tight fitting hood, and holding an engraved glass bottle and a mug. Mrs Cintra filled these for her from the drinking fountain; while she did so, the woman placed her hand on the witness shoulder and repeated several times the word “Rempaua.” Then the woman went out and entered a luminous craft, pear shaped with a flat bottom that was hovering 3 ft above the hospital’s lawn; another person could be seen in the craft. It took off and climbed slowly in a spiral, with a repetition of the flapping sound.  ||||||||||||||    Mrs Maria Jose Cintra, the receptionist and general servant at the Clemente Ferreria Sanatorium 6-7 km north east of Lins, was in her room above the front entrance, when she was awakened by a whistling sound mixed with that of “several large birds wings beating together”. Thinking a new patient had arrived, she went to the front door, which, on opening, revealed a foreign looking woman dressed in a tight head-dress, which left only her face uncovered, and coloured clothes. She was of normal height, and was holding a bottle and mug in her hand. She spoke in a language that Maria could not understand, but making it clear that she wanted water. She gave to Maria the bottle, which resembled an ordinary 3 litre bottle except for extraordinarily beautiful engravings which covered it. As Maria filled the bottle the woman looked at a couple of cars at the entrance, came over to the font, put her hand on Maria’s shoulder and repeated over and over in a high pitched, very feminine voice, the word “Rempaua”. The two went back to the entrance, where Maria now saw, to her considerable fright, a brilliantly illuminated pear shaped object hovering 1m above a grassy area in the centre of the drive, 25m away. The strange woman walked towards the object, where she was helped on board by a strange personage who may, or may not have been already inside. The two strangers made a sweeping gesture with one of their arms and the woman entered in a manner that was not altogether clear. As Maria shrank back in terror, the object in a slow spiral, making the same sound of air being beaten. Maria was shaken and sweating and lost her appetite for some days. A heeless footmark on the sanatorium floor seems to have been the only trace, despite American press reports to the contrary.
