Date: January  1971
Location:  Mahwah USA
Time:  13:00 

Date: January 1971
Location: Near Wrotham Park Station, North Queensland, Australia
Time: 0230A
Summary: Terry and a friend, Bob, had decided to pack up their camp because of an approaching thunderstorm. The two men had been camping in the area of Wrotham Park Station and hunting crocodiles to be sold in Cairns. The two departed in Bob’s four-wheel drive Landrover towards the station homestead on route to Chillagoe with the idea in mind of leaving the area before the roads became boggy. Upon reaching the gate at the homestead Terry and Bob saw a light some distance from the road in the scrub, at a second gate another light was seen. Not considering these lights as anything unusual, the two witnesses drove towards Chillagoe and after driving for another 10 minutes; Bob saw and pointed out a light in the sky (approximately) 100 ft altitude and half a mile ahead. The object, which the light was on, paced the witness’s car in front of them at this distance for approximately one hour until approximately 0200A. The four-wheel seemed to gain on the object until it almost stopped one quarter of a mile distant. Terry stated that it was hard to estimate the distance because of the darkness. The UFO drifted across the road and over the scrub to their left and the two men decided to stop and look closer at the object at this stage. They hooked a spotlight on the four-wheel drive and aimed it at the object. Terry said they flashed the spotlight several times and the object, hovering appeared to respond by dimming and brightening on top. During this time watching the object, Bob approached the UFO on foot to about thirty meters. He described an object about sixty feet wide and twenty five feet deep with a large window area, lit with soft green light inside and a brilliant curtain of crimson light streaming down from the rim of the object to the ground. The object was a gold brown in color at this time but later appeared to be shiny metallic when lit by sunlight. The whole UFO was enveloped in a halo of light apparently reflected up from the crimson beams. Bob stated that although he could not hear any noise, he had the impression that a lot of noise was being generated, perhaps beyond his range of hearing. As he stood watching he saw several shadows moving in the cabin area, one of the shadows moved to the windows of the object nearest to the witness. He clearly saw the upper human form silhouette apparently leaning on the windowsill area looking out. Bob decided to return to the vehicle at this stage. Both witnesses continued to observe the object until sunrise, when the object began to slowly move away to the northeast.

Location: Kosice, Slovakia
Time: 2300
Summary: A witness reported being taken inside an object together with her friend her cat. They were all brought from her flat through a window and in a trance-like state delivered into another “planet” where there was no sun, no moon and everything was made out of ice. There she was met by three beautiful female humanoids wearing silvery spacesuits that paralyzed them all and loaded them onto a wagon-like sledge. The main witness woke up the next day with pain all over her body, without any further recollection.

Date: January 7, 1971
Location: Dennis, MA 
Summary: A strange metallic object that shone with an orange glow as it moved through the sky may now be resting at the bottom of a lake. The object was observed independently by two school boys on the morning of the 7th on Cape Cod. It traveled horizontally, then on an oblique path toward the ground, and disappeared behind some trees in the direction of a small body of water called Scargo Lake. One of the boys, unaware anyone else had seen the object, ran to a dock at the lake’s edge and discovered a large hole in the ice covering the lake. Steam was rising from the hole, and the exposed water appeared agitated. Except for the hole, the lake and shore were normal, and the object was not in sight. A 13-year-old girl, who lived in a house near the dock, saw the boy running through her yard and went after him when he yelled to her. She too saw the hole but was too frightened to notice the condition of the water. Minutes later, another boy arrived on the scene, having also observed the first boy running to the lake. He saw the steam also, which by then was diminishing. The other witness to the object, a 13-year-old boy, was a little less than a mile from the lake when he first saw the object but made no attempt to follow it after it went down.

Location: Peabody, Kansas
Time: pre-dawn
Summary: Stewart and Lyle Leppke, doing their early morning farm chores, observed a lighted object in a cattle lot. When they flashed their light on it, they saw a diminutive figure, less than 2-feet tall, moving about near the object, which had small windows on it. They immediately went to the house to notify their mother, who called the sheriff; the object had departed by the time he arrived. The boys said the object hovered a few feet off the ground, and when it departed, tipped to one side, and then sped rapidly away.

Date: January 22 1971
Location: North of Willard Ohio
Time: 2105
Summary: Richard Williams, his wife and son, were driving toward Willard when they saw a low flying object that “looked like a bat” coming toward their car. “On the middle of each wing there seemed to be a rocket or a jet engine, and it had red and white lights on each wing and on the tails.” They thought at first it was a plane crashing. It was 25-30 ft in diameter and came to within 100ft off the car and then took off toward Willard, in the east. There was a transparent “cockpit” in the front of the object, through which could be seen the movements of “some kind of creature”, silhouetted by a flashing light behind it. Multiple reports of sightings came from Tiro, Sandusky, and other sections of Huron County around the same time.
