Date: Kremenchug, Poltava region, Ukraine (USSR)
Location: early June 1968
Time: about 1700-1800
Summary: Two witnesses, Galena Alekseevna Kazayeva and her partner, both employees at a local chemical laboratory were standing outside of the Kremenchug power station when they spotted a disc-shaped object that Galena first mistook for the moon, but she looked more attentively and noticed that in fact it was an oval shaped disk, emitting light and hovering in midair, close to the plant’s smokestack. Both witnesses walked closer to the base of the stack. Both witnesses now saw what appeared to be humanoid silhouettes through the transparent hull of the UFO. Both witnesses ran to the workshop and reported the event to engineer Husid William Naumovich and then went back outdoors to see the UFO still hovering in midair. They then observed several low flying “Mi” helicopters that appeared from beyond the oil-refining plant the pilots having seen the UFO as well. The UFO then quickly reacted, not waiting for the helicopters to arrive, it soundlessly jerked from its location and zoomed up in a sharp angle to the northwest disappearing from sight in seconds.

Summary: While walking along the Ceglie Messapica Road the witness, A. C. noticed at about 100 meters away a very strong luminosity blue-violet in color, about 10 meters in diameter and apparently hovering about 20/30 cm from the ground. Approaching the object he noticed that within the light he could see an illuminated disc-shaped craft. Through an opening he could see two humanoid figures about 1.20 meters in height, wearing tight-fitting dark coveralls and helmets moving about, apparently operating some instruments. Moments later one of the humanoids turned around and stared directly at the witness who felt afraid and turned to run to his car. As he ran away he “heard” a voice in his head telling him: “Do not be afraid we are a peaceful people”, he fled without seeing the object leave. The next morning upon returning to the site he found a depressed section on the ground of about 10 meters in diameter and about 30 cm in depth. He also found a strange looking irregular shaped silvery stone, which he kept. Analysis proved to be made out of “normal” earth minerals.

Date: June 1 1968
Location: Darmstadt, Germany
Time:  2200-00.00A
Summary: The main witness and others were stationed at the Cambrai-Fritsch Kaseme (Seventh Evac Hosp Army) outside Darmstadt. The Odenwald Forest was right outside their fence. Their barracks was 20ft from the fence. Their unit was “in the field” so there was no “lights out” and they were playing pool. Soon they noticed they noticed small white Christmas like lights flickering in the tree tops and started watching them. They then noticed that the cue-balls wouldn’t go in the pockets like they should, they seemed to veer away a little. The men thought that there was something peculiar going on but had no idea what. The main witness began to get the feeling of being watched and mentioned it. At least one other person had a similar feeling. It was really bothering the men and one of the new recruits, just seventeen, “was freaking out”. The main witness imagined that whatever it was “could read their minds” and he must have been thinking UFO because he thought telepathically to whatever it was to leave before the young soldier really lost it completely and contact him after he got back home. The odd feeling subsided and he went to bed. A little after lying down he had the sensation of being sucked out of his body. His legs and part of his body felt like they were at a right angle to how his physical body was lying on the bed and his shoulders and head were still in it. Fearful, he began to concentrate in something different and noticed that the fear made him weaker in his “fight” against whatever it was. He then concentrated on a girlfriend and was soon able to get up. He was afraid to go back to sleep so he went back to the pool table and wanted to wait until daylight to try to sleep. A while later he went up to the fourth floor to a friend’s room and looked out the window just in time to see an oval-shaped object take off out of the top of the trees. It was fiery orange in color. The witness and members of his family were to have further sightings.

Summary: Walking home after midnight, artist Benjamin Solari Parravicini was suddenly confronted by a fair skinned man with eyes ‘so light in color that he looked as if blind,” who addressed him in an unintelligible guttural language. Looking upward, the witness saw only 50 yards away a hovering aerial craft, with no lights. He became dizzy, and when he recovered, he found himself inside the machine, with 3 other persons. One of these, very handsome, was questioning Parravicini in an alien language, which he was able to understand telepathically. They told him that they would taken him once around the earth, and he observed Japan, France, and Chile before being returned to the same street corner. Since this experience, the alien beings have contacted Parravicini several times.

Summary: Jorge Yaru, a member of the Argentine Navy, stepped out of his home to hear a very loud engine type noise, looking around he sees nothing and re-enters the house. Soon he again hears the noise and goes outside to investigate. Looking towards a nearby empty field he sees a hovering disc shaped object with a dome on top and one in the bottom, he estimates the craft to be about 1.50 meters in width and 6 meters in length, the craft was rotating in anti-clockwise manner. He watched the object for 45 minutes then the craft shoots away at a ninety-degree angle towards the nearby wooded hills. Mr. Yaru then feels a strange urge to bathe in a nearby brook, which he does, not withstanding the very low temperatures at the time. He strangely felt, as he had to “cleanse” himself. At the same time, a neighbor, Adela Garcia, heard the same noise and noticed in the same empty field a strange triangular shaped cloud from which a giant man-like figure, over 2 meters tall, with long blond hair, descended to the ground. The strange being, which Garcia likened to Jesus Christ, approaches her and she kneels before him. Turning away briefly from the being, she looks up and both the being and the triangular shaped cloud had vanished. At the empty field a large scorched area of grass was found.

Summary: Pedro Pretzel, the proprietor of a motel, was walking home when he saw near the motel an object projecting 2 very intense beams of red light. On arriving home he found his 19-year old daughter Maria in a faint. She said she had encountered in the vestibule a blond man over 6 ft tall, dressed in a “diver’s suit” of sky blue scales, and holding in his left hand a sky-blue sphere. On his right hand was a huge ring, like a gauntlet half covering his hand. The ends of his fingers and toes emitted light, and whenever his hand pointed at her she felt weak. He smiled and spoke to her in an unintelligible language resembling Japanese for some minutes before leaving. As he walked out the rear door it opened by itself and then it slammed shut as the stranger walked out. She saw what appeared to be a type of skirt on the back of the stranger. Before he walked out Maria felt very dizzy and began sweating profusely in her mind she heard a voice telling her not to be afraid.

Date:  June 14 1968
Location: Near Celano, Abruzzi, Italy
Time: 1800
Summary: At the same time that an asteroid named “Icarus” came very closed to the earth, strange events were reported in northern Italy. A half hysterical woman phoned the police station reporting that three huge, disc shaped object were hovering outside of town, the objects glowed a pale red. Lt. Germonde took the call. Minutes later other witnesses reported seeing “spinning discs” the size of houses slowly descend to the ground in a wooded area near the town. But soon it really got weirder. Germonde received a call from a bar-restaurant owner reporting “huge birds with tiny wings and with faces like humans.” According to the witness there were four or five huge birds flying towards Celano. The strange creatures were described as 3-feet in height and flying upright, as if they were men being propelled above the ground by some unknown force. No wings were visible…only a blur above their shoulders, like the wings of a hummingbird. Whatever kept them flying was small and moving very fast. The creatures reportedly flew at a height of only a few feet above the ground. They appeared to have trouble moving in heavily wooded areas. Their faces were reported to have been human like, which contained a blank look. The next day, Arturo Gerraci, on his way home and drunk, stumbled on a bird-like corpse in the woods. Running all the way back to the tavern howling that he came across the “corpse of a winged monster” in the woods. First reluctant to follow him to the woods, some men did go to the spot and recovered the body of a strange creature. A Dr. Respighi examined the corpse and described it as, “A creature of about 3-feet in height, weighing approximately 41 pounds, having arms and legs formed roughly the same as those of a normal human, that is to say with fingers, opposing thumb, and toes, complete with joint structure. A wing like appendage attached roughly halfway between shoulder and neck on each side of the head. It was made up of tiny, thin, but extremely strong pieces of cartilage, apparently capable of moving very rapidly. The creature had no eyes. In their place was a cluster of tiny, filament like antenna, protected by a tissue thin membrane of skin. It had also gill like apertures capable of oxygen intake. Incredibly as the body was being examined it was decomposing at an incredibly rapid rate. The tissue seemed to dry up and crumble into powdery flakes. Respighi had the corpse put in a freezer, hoping to preserve it, until colleagues could arrive and examine it. By the time they arrived, even on the ice, the corpse decomposed to a grayish white powder.

Date: June 14 1968
Location:  Near Cabañas, Pinar Del Rio, Cuba
Time: after midnight
Summary: Shortly after midnight several bursts of machine gun fire were heard coming from a location in the vicinity where militia member Isidro Puentes Ventura was on guard duty. At dawn, Puentes was found unconscious by an Army patrol and taken to a hospital in Pinar Del Rio, where he remained in shock and unable to speak for six days. Removed to the neurological ward at the Naval Hospital in Havana, Puentes was diagnosed to be suffering from emotional trauma, remaining in shock for another week. At the site where Puentes had been posted, Cuban and Soviet intelligence investigators found forty-eight spent cartridges and fourteen bullets apparently flattened by impact, as well as equally spaced indentations in the ground, indicating that a heavy device had landed. Tests revealed that the soil had been exposed to a high degree of heat. When Puentes recovered consciousness he reported that he had come to within 150 feet of a brilliant round object on the ground, with a dome and several antennas on top. Convinced that the device was an American helicopter, Puentes fired about forty rounds at it. The craft turned orange and emitted a strong whistling sound—Puentes last recollection before losing consciousness. Soviet intelligence specialists subjected Puentes to a fifty-hour interrogation after which he was examined by a team of psychiatrists and put through fifteen hypnosis sessions. No contradictions were found in his story.

They took his arms and he began to “trace signs automatically.” He believed that they had “brain washed” him. He was finally released between the towns of Brinkmann and Cotagaita, in Cordoba, where the mysterious man in the black car picked him up and delivered him to his home.

Summary: An 11-year old boy was going to bed when a bright light “like lighting” shown outside his window. The light came into the room, filling it up. He felt paralyzed, and saw one entity, one figure inside the light. The being was four and a half foot tall with a larger head than he should have had but otherwise relatively normal. The entity tried to communicate with him by telepathy, but all he got out of it was “all my nerves just shaking and I kept hearing a sound like a humming or buzzing that just filled the room.” It gave him a headache, which occasionally returns. He thought that the being was indicating that he would return, which did happen twenty years later (in the form of a headache producing “telepathic messages” but with no entity visible).

They seemed to appreciate that. They then told him that they came from a world with no cities where its inhabitants were born in the wilderness. They told him that cities were a danger to their society. They called themselves “Dodonians.” The witness shook hands with the men and they boarded the craft, which quickly left the area.

Summary: The witness, Mrs Dora Egger de Torrez was sleeping with her husband when she was suddenly awakened by a strong buzzing sound that was hurting her ears. When she turned around she noticed on the corner of the bedroom an oval-shaped light and inside of it two human-like figures, one tall, about 2 meters in height and the second only about 50 or 70cm in height. Both wore tight-fitting metallic brown diving suits and helmets with plastic-visors that covered their faces. The shorter creature seemed to move its hands and walked towards the witness who suddenly felt a sort of burning sensation in her body. The shorter figure appeared to have noticed and retreated backwards. The taller figures at times walked around the shorter humanoid at times showing his back. When the witness attempted to wake her husband the shorter figure again approached and she felt paralyzed, and could not move her hand, which seemed to bump against something invisible. She is not sure how long the observation lasted. The humanoids seemed to have communicated with her and she felt that they had told her that they would return someday. However she did not hear any words being spoken and did not noticed their lips moving. Finally the oval shaped light its occupants seemed to suddenly shrink in size until vanishing from sight along with the loud buzzing sound. Only at that moment was Dora able to wake her husband punching him really hard on the stomach. He found his wife in an extremely excited state, repeating the phrase, “they will return”. Dora later found a strange blister on the top of her mouth that remained there for several days. A neighbor that visited the location noticed a strong odor resembling that of burning electrical wire, which appeared to be stronger on the corner where the humanoids had originally appeared.

Summary: Jose Paulino Nunez, a distillery worker, encountered on the beach two people he first took to be guards. Their dress and actions were like normal people, but they showed him a spherical device of some 30 cm in which he could see the images of people walking about. Speaking in a strange, metallic voice, one asked the witness, “Do you know these people? They were like you. Many more will be like them. Many people in the world will see the same thing you have seen. We will talk about this again. If you speak of this, be sure it is with responsible people.” At that point the witness experienced a lapse of memory, for the next thing he recalls was being back in the laboratory, where it took him an hour to compose himself. The people he saw in the images were all tall human like, with pale complexions, and long light colored hair, which appeared to be walking about in a trance like state.
