Summary: Rancher Lennis Gines and his 16-year old son noticed blue and yellow lights in the fields behind their rural home. The lights were silent and rotated. The family’s dog whimpered and ran inside to hide. The 16-year old son then drove his truck near the lights and was able to see an object with a doorway, windows, and shadowy figures going in and out. Nearby several nervous cows huddled together. Their milk production declined after the incident.

Summary: The witness had just returned to bed from the bathroom and was lying down when he looked towards the hall and heard a strange “pitter, patter” type sound. Suddenly a huge figure of a birdman-like being, rushed into the room making a loud screeching sound. It hovered and leaned over the witness staring straight at him. The witness was unable to move or scream, seemingly paralyzed. The witness could only see two huge round eyes. Moments later the creature vanished in plain sight.

The witness was apparently abducted again. She woke up in an examining table surrounded by four little gray men about four-foot tall. They were apparently being supervised by a taller more human like entity. They spent a lot of time examining her abdomen and pelvis area. They then inserted a long needle on a long tube that came down from the ceiling and into her stomach just above her navel area. Another device was planted under her chin. The witness had a miscarriage soon after this incident.

A 10-year old girl was on her way home from church. The church was situated at about 2km from he girl’s house, so she was very happy when she approached her house. However as she neared the gate she saw a terrible appearing entity. The streetlight illuminated the witness’s house so she was able to see many details of the creature. It was approaching from a nearby orchard. The witness described it as about 40-50cm in height, oval in shape and dark in color, its limbs were very thin, the arms were longer that its legs. The legs were about 10cm long; the eyes were large, and dark. The entity was shaggy (or hairy) in appearance, probably with large pointed ears or hors, resembling a mythical goblin or a “devil”. The witness was very frightened. She was certain that she had not seen an animal. No craft was visible or seen.

The third of Aarno Heinonen’s 1972 “contacts” occurred while he was riding his motor scooter on the Voikoski Road. He saw a small spherical cloud passing over, which then descended and stopped about 8 feet above the ground. From this “cloud” descended the same “space girl,” this time wearing a grown pants suit. She said, “Don’t be afraid, I’m your friend from another planet.” The woman had brown shoes and wore thin gloves. When she left she smile “in a beautiful way,” then pulled on one of the antennas on the small sphere, Heinonen felt a “whirlwind,” and the girl glide up into the globular cloud, which then ascended vertically very fast.

Summary:  8-10′ altitude!!! City Editor of the Aubury Evening News was in the Butler Police Station when a woman walked in. “She looked nervously at us, then obviously steeled herself and spoke to the Marion County Parole Officer. ‘Will you promise not to think I’m crazy if I tell you something?” Her hands shook, her brow was damp with sweat. ‘I saw this thing. I was driving along State Rd. 1 near a woods at County Rd. 34. I came up over the crest of a high hill and there it was, about 3’ above my car. It was about a car length long, but perfectly round with what looked like red fluorescent paint along the top, and it had four feet coming out of the bottom.” Investigation showed skid-marks where she braked the car, another man report a funny noise, another witness reported a high-pitch whine.

Summary:  A unidentified “bogie” was detected on radar at the West Palm Beach International Airport by FAA air traffic controller C. J. Fox. Fox described the contact as a “good clear target.” The object was tracked for over an hour when at approximately 6:00 A.M., NORAD was alerted. Two F-106 jet fighters were dispatched from Homestead AFB, south of Miami, to locate and identify the the unknown object. The object disappeared from radar scopes shortly before the jets arrived. There were visual reports from the West Palm Beach International Airport by FAA watch supervisor George Morales. He viewed the object through binoculars and described the object as silver white in color and cigar shaped. Officials at Miami International Airport, which also tracked the strange object, reported no aircraft was known to be in the area where the UFO was spotted.

Hearing noises outside their farmhouse, 3 anonymous university students discovered, upon investigating, the presence of a figure “like a monk in a shroud” “hovering” about 15 feet from the door. Terry, who saw the figure first, called Phil and Greg, his co-tenants, and they all observed the figure—“a white thing like a monk’s robe and just this sort of void for a face”—floating about in a light arc. Greg made a sudden move, and the figure disappeared in a flash, which the other two thought shot toward Greg and “entered him” at chest height. Terry and Phil looked around for a moment and then saw Greg in a state of shock; unable to articulate other than to indicate he felt “sick inside.” They took him in the house. A short time later they went back outside to look around; Greg was still in his “possessed” state then a horse trotted up, one of Greg’s favorites. He threw his arms around the animal’s neck and the other two again saw the flash, this time leaving Greg and entering the horse, which reared and bolted. Greg was apparently all right. The investigator of this case had a UFO sighting on the campsite of the University of New England, only a few miles away, on the same day, the area was the site of increased UFO activity later in 1972 and into 1973.

Summary: The witness was returning to the village on foot and as he near a local ravine he suddenly heard queer squeaky voices. At first he ignored it, but as he took several additional steps he spotted a glow coming from behind the ravine, at first weak, but then becoming stronger, suddenly there occurred a flash after which the light dimmed in waves and in the boundary between the light and the darkness appeared several small creatures. Stunned, the witness stopped at the unexpected contingency. As soon as the little creatures spotted him these were whisked back into the darkness from the illuminated space. The witness stood fascinated staring at the waves of bright light. He could still hear what sounded like laughter and a squeaky babble of voices coming from the darkness. Soon at the edge of the darkness the babbling and laughing little creatures again appeared. The creatures suddenly ran towards the witness who felt his body become numb and cold. The little creatures touched the witness several times and suddenly they began to squeal and jump up and down. They seemed to prefer to stay in the threshold between the light and dark, rarely venturing into the lighted areas. The witness again focused his attention on the light which to flutter in waves or strips, first soft and weak and then flaring up. He could only describe the little creatures as only about 30-60cm in height, human like bodies and faces and wearing rubber-like coveralls. They had dark unruly long hair. The witness then was able to continue to walk and was followed by the bizarre creatures to the village of Boboshino. Upon approaching a street light it seemed to flicker but did not go out, at this point the laughing and babbling little humanoids disappeared back into the darkness and disappeared.

Summary: Teodoro Merlo, 56, maintenance man of the Ika-Renault factory, entered the previously locked washroom and encountered a “man” nearly 8-feet tall sitting on a long washbasin; he wore very close fitting dark blue one-piece garment tight at the wrists, and held his right forefinger below his now. His complexion was very white, and his baldhead bore high, pointed ears. The figure disappeared unaccountably from the room, whose temperature was abnormally high. The witness later suffered repeated headaches, and pains in his lumbar region.

Later on that same day, the same witness, Teodoro Merlo was riding the bus on his way back to the factory. He sat on the third seat from the front on the left side of the bus. There were about 25 other riders in the bus. On top of the windshield wiper there was a large oval-shaped rearview mirror. The lights inside the bus were turned off; only the console lights were on. Suddenly as the bus drove by an area called “Los Olivares” Merlo was stunned to see on the rearview mirror the facial image of the very same type of entity he had seen earlier on that date. This time he was able to see the in more detail. Surprised he turned around and looked behind him to make sure the creature was not really riding the bus. He only saw another passenger leaning against a window, sleeping. He described additional details on the face such as the mouth, which according to Merlo resembled that of a canine (dog) the top lip protruding over the lower lip. On both cheeks he could see what appeared to be large brownish stains or birthmarks; he also noted eye and facial movement. Under each of the eyes he could see two converging dark lines angled obliquely towards the eyes. The eyelids were slanted and thin, seemingly painted on, the entity did not blink. The nose was triangular in shape very thin and bony. After three minutes of observing the bizarre being, the image suddenly vanished, being covered with what appeared to be concentric circles. The image on the mirror returned to normal now reflecting the normal bus activity behind Merlo. Apparently none of the other passengers had noticed anything out of the ordinary.

Virgilio Gomez was driving along a lonely road when a man wearing a light green coverall that covered even his feet stopped him; he wore no gloves, and had a sort of watch on his wrist. The man identified himself as Freddy Miller, a well-known Dominican baseball player who had mysteriously disappeared more than 15 years previously; he said that a UFO had rescued him when his 2 companions drowned, “because of my knowledge of radio technology and my intelligence.” Nearby were 2 slender men 7-foot tall, dressed like Miller; they had complexions like Chinese and short chestnut colored hill. Miller also pointed out to Gomez the craft in which they had arrived; it was football shaped the size of an automobile, with a bright “nickel plated” surface. The conversation continued for about 5 minutes, during which Miller told Gomez, that the humanoids were “supposedly from Venus.” Then Gomez was told to leave, because “they” were departing, and not to worry if his car wouldn’t function, because it would return to normal spontaneously. As he drove away Gomez saw the three men approaching the object.

Summary:  A farmer in Las Lunas, Mexico, returning to town, spotted several small objects “fluttering” along a few dozen feet above the desert scrub. They were small, about three feet in diameter, silver in color and made a buzzing sound. Similar domed disc-shaped objects were seen and photographed in the same area about five years later. This picture has long been thought to be a hoax, because of its clarity, and proximity to the witness.

The witness had apparently received a telepathic message instructing him to go to a certain spot to meet a “UFO.” He arrived at the spot and saw a landed disc shaped craft. An opening became visible and a large man like creature wearing a metallic suit stepped out. He carried in his hand a shiny wand like instrument, which he pointed at the witness. At this point the witness became confused and heard a loud voice; he then found himself inside the object and could see the being sitting at what appeared to be a command console, with a visual screen and display. He also saw a peculiar six-sided box like apparatus. Communication apparently took place and the witness was finally set free near a swamp.

Summary: Enrique Moreno was delivering documents in the Ika-Renault factory when the fluorescent lights in the engineering room went on and off three times. There was an accompanying noise like that of a turbine lasting for several seconds. Then, driving his motor runabout outside the plant, he briefly glimpsed “a sort of rainbow very near the ground,” and thought no further of it until he suddenly encountered a tall figure, glowing a bluish green, moving among some piles of chassis beside his route. As he approached within 30 yards, the figure swung around, in a stiff, mechanical  way, to face him, and at the same time his engine faltered, and quit when he came opposite the being. This humanoid figure, strongly built and about 7.5 ft tall had eyes like yellow light bulbs, ears that rose above the skull in a point, a square chin, and a slit-like mouth. The face appeared pale green, but this may have been a reflection of the clothing, a one-piece tight fitting coverall of luminescent bluishgreen, with a broad silvery belt. Moreno felt an intolerable hum in his ears and a sensation of heat and itching over his whole body; there was a smell of burning oil. His arms and legs were paralyzed. After 30 seconds of confrontation, his motorcycle shot off to the left on its own volition at high speed, and the witness returned to the Security Office without his conscious control. He arrived at 2330, but his wristwatch had stopped at 2313A, leaving 15 minutes unaccounted for. Moreno was in a highly agitated state, and subsequently suffered nausea and pains in the neck, as well as a burning sensation in his eyes. At the encounter site later, two rectangular “footprints” 8 x 16 were found and the soil there was hot.

Summary: Independent witnesses, one a lady named Quiroga, saw near a local auto plant a luminous object which by means of a solid beam of blue light picked up a tall humanoid entity. It apparently took the being up through the tube of light and into the object. Others saw a luminous object rising up to the sky from the vicinity of the auto plant. In addition an unnamed official of the Renault plant also reported that the same night he had also seen a luminous object drawing up, by means of a luminous tube, a figure with precisely the features reported by both Moreno and Rodriguez.

Summary:  Luftolde Rodriguez, a truck driver making a delivery to the Ika Renault plant 4 and half hours after the Moreno encounter, had driven into the northeast sector of the plant to unload. He was driving a 1957 tip-truck Dodge. Having unloaded his cargo, he was just starting off when he noticed the whole area lit up. Hearing someone approaching from behind, he looked out the right side window and saw, in profile, the torso of a very tall figure pass close by. Only when this figure had moved into a position seen through the windshield could Rodriguez see its head. At that point the being stopped, did a right about turn, stiffly, and looked straight at the witness. He did another right turn, and moved slowly and awkwardly ahead, finally crossing diagonally to the left and disappearing behind some piles of frames. He had been in view from 60 to 90 seconds. The entity, dressed in a tight one-piece coverall of luminescent/blue green color, was similar to the one described by Moreno. He was fully 2.5 meters tall, as compared to the pile of frames he passed behind, and his head was bald, flattened at the rear, with the same long, narrow ears that rose to a point above the pate. His eyes were numerous circles with no eyelids or eyebrows. The nose was straight, and the mouth rudimentary. His complexion was very white. Legs and arms were extremely long, and he did not bend his legs as he walked; in his left hand he held a small white sphere the size of a billiard ball. He had a wide silver belt and large, square, silver boots. A number of physical effects occurred simultaneous with its appearance; the truck engine and lights died just as the figure strode by; these effects lasted until it was 25-30 meters distant. Rodriguez was immobilized in his seat; although he could follow the movement of the figure, he could not move either his hands or legs. He heard a humming noise, similar to bees, while the figure was in view. He sat there for several minutes after the figure vanished, not knowing what to do. Finally, some other workers approached to ask what was wrong and he told them what he’d seen. A search disclosed no sign of the intruder, nor where there any traces. Subsequent inquiries disclosed there were a number of independent UFO observations in the area during the evening of September 27-28.

Summary: A second encounter by Moreno occurred almost 24 hours after the first. After completing a chore in a department adjacent to the Teleprinting Section, he suddenly had the impression he was being watched. Looking out an open window on the plant grounds, he saw, facing him, and only 3 meters from the window, the same entity he had seen the night before. At the same moment, the fluorescent lighting in the office flashed on and off, and the whole area was permeated with a soft hum. The teleprinters all started up simultaneously and, filled with an excess of dread, Moreno fled towards the Security Office, shouting for someone to come and corroborate the entity’s presence. One of the guards had to subdue him physically and warned him of any further outbreaks. They assured him that they would not report this latest incident, indicating clearly that they believed he was hallucinating.

Time: 1930
Summary: John J. Stanga, his best friend Dave, Dave’s sister and a young girl had gone behind an old farm behind the Union Street Elementary School in order for Dave’s sister to smoke a cigarette. The farm was abandoned at the time. As Dave was talking to his sister, John heard something at the edge of the field and at the same he saw something. The shape was backlit by the lights on the elementary school. It was an enormous creature creeping on all fours like a gorilla. It sort of looked like a gorilla, but was huge. It had huge shoulders and head. The shoulders appeared to be six to eight feet off the ground; it lacked a neck since the head just went directly into its shoulders. It looked hairy, but it was really just a dark shape against the lights. It seem to creep in short movements, it put its arms out, hands down on the ground and the back legs then moved forward about the same distance. Afraid, both men ran off without telling Dave’s sister what they saw. When she asked why they ran, they told her and she thought they were kidding. Ten minutes later both John and Dave were standing around a house under construction that boarded the field hoping to see the creature again. Soon they heard some noises and concerned, decided to leave and see if they could find some friends in order to return to area with additional people. As they were walking back to a house where their friends usually hung out they suddenly saw, perpendicular to the way they were walking, right in front and above them, they saw a beam of purple light. It resembled a solid rod of light, almost like a black light stretched across the sky. It only lasted a few seconds if that, but not only did they see the beam, they heard it. It emitted a humming sound.
