Date:  February  1968
Location:  Scotia New York
Time:  unknown
Summary:  Two 15-year old boys were packing snow on the bank of the frozen Mohawk River when they saw a glowing fireball “about the size of a basketball” rise from an island in the river. It hovered for some moments & disappeared. One boy thought he could distinguish a white-suited human form behind a bush. They ran home. The next morning, 300 yards away, a 16-year old was found frozen to death on the ice of the river.

Summary:  After work Sunday, a friend dropped off Tom Monteleone at home. As the friend pulled away, a large black car with its lights out glided out of the shadows and halted at the curb. The entity called Vadig then called out to the witness from the car. Another man was in the car. Monteleone later recalled only that he wore a gray coat, had black hair, and never spoke. The witness got into the car. The car was a very old Buick, but was very well kept, it looked brand new, and it even smelled brand new. They drove for about 30 minutes to a remote spot on a back road. When the witness got out of the car he was astonished to see an egg shaped object waiting for them. Inside the object he was put into a circular room containing nothing but a couple of bucket seats and a gray TV screen. Vadig and his companion disappeared into another part of the craft. After a few minutes the TV screen came alive, the object shuddered, and the witness watched the image of the earth receding to a tiny speck on the screen. Three or four hours passed. It seemed like hours before another planet appeared on the screen, it grew larger, and then the craft landed with a thump. The young witness found himself in a place no too unlike the Earth. He and Vadig got into a wheel less vehicle that traveled along a kind of through. “This is Lanulos,” Vadig announced with pride in his voice. Their vehicle traveled through a large city with low, flat buildings and signs written in some kind of Oriental looking characters. The people, male and female, were all nude. After the tour, they returned to the egg-shaped craft and took off again. The witness sat alone in the same circular room watching the television screen for hours. Finally they arrived back on Earth at the same place from which they had left. The witness, Vadig, and the silent man returned to the old Buick and drove for about 30 minutes until they reached his apartment house. “I’ll see you in time,” Vadig declared, the car drove off. To the witness amazement the whole trip, including the 30-minute rides to and from the object, had taken less than two hours.

A widow named Mrs. Anna de la Rovera returned home one evening and found a man dressed in gray sitting on her front porch. When she asked him what he wanted, he “simply stood up and walked into the house through the closed front door.” The mysterious stranger appeared frequently after that, often invading her bedroom and “making amorous advances” to her. One night she saw a dark apparition coming out of the kitchen. It was covered with long hair, and she particularly remembered seeing long, curved fingernails. Her children also saw the intruder. She complained to local authorities.

In a rural area a couple was getting ready to go to sleep when the husband decided to look outside to check road conditions. He was then astounded when he saw a huge oval shaped craft hovering near a pond, the craft had several prong-like probes protruding out, and one was directly in front of the window. The husband then yelled to his wife and both watched the object. The craft was dark gray metallic with a large dome on top. It gave the impression that it was old and ancient. The bottom of the object appeared concave. There was a white light that illuminated the object entirely and the witness could now see a catwalk on the middle of the object. There was a single human like figure standing on the catwalk and was looking directly at the witness. The witness could also see opened portholes from which multicolored lights emerged, what appeared to be instrument panels and other figures could be seen inside the object. Another figure had now come out to the catwalk and was apparently talking to the other one. The object eventually moved slowly away rising up out of sight shining a bright beam of light at the witnesses who briefly followed it in their vehicle.

Summary:  Serafin Vieria Sebastiao, a sentry, after noticing interference on his transistor radio, saw a UFO so close to the ground that he could see four of its occupants; the object was oval, metallic, and topped by a transparent “tower” with a small balustrade on which two beings were leaning; the other two could be seen as silhouettes inside the transparent tower. After telephoning another sentry, he approached the craft and shone his flashlight on it. At this he was enveloped in a sort of smoke or dust emitted by the UFO, and fell to the ground in a faint, where the other sentry found him a few minutes later.

Location. Winsted Connecticut
Date: February 21 1968
Time: 2300
The witness, a 12-year-old girl, heard a “bloop-bloop” noise and looked out her window; she saw a white egg shaped object, a little larger than a station wagon, hovering close to the ground beside the disused Winsted railroad station. A ray of light came out of the craft, pointed downward, and 15-20 little men about 3 ft tall walked in single file down this ray and jumped to the ground. They were dressed in dull silver clothing and wore fishbowl-type helmets. They proceeded to climb up the side of the station, one after another, with a hand over hand movement; when they reached the roof, they spread out in different directions. The girl became frightened and went to bed.
