Date: April 1973
Location: Greslby Aland Island Finland
Time:  unknown
Summary: An unidentified witness observed for 10 minutes a bowl-shaped object 30 meters in diameter, with windows, hovering approximately 50 meters above the water at a distance of about 150 meters; it was of a metallic color with flashing red and green lights. The witness stepped out of his car to observe the object and detected a sharp, pungent odor as the UFO moved closer in sharp jerky motions. Each “jerk” advanced it about 10 meters toward him. Behind the illuminated windows he could see several moving shadows, and he “had a sensation of being watched.” The UFO was surrounded by a heat-like, shimmering waves.

Summary: The witness who had previously photographed a UFO was visited at his auto parts shop by two very strange looking humanoids. The two were described as having long hair with pale expressionless faces and wearing tan clothing with heavy gloves. One was very tall and the other was four-foot tall with a long head. The witness dog began to whimper and hid in a corner. The beings spoke in a mechanical monotone and demanded the UFO photographs. They then left in what appeared to be a yellow Buick La Sabre with tinted windows and no seats or steering wheel.

Location: Laguna California

Summary: The main witness who had been experiencing mental contacts with an entity that called itself “Semjase” was at home when he had a sudden urge to go outside. He approached the edge of a nearby cliff and saw a hovering radiating disc shaped object. He attempted to call additional witnesses in the house but was unable to since they were terrified. At the open doorway of the craft stood a female figure apparently about eight-foot tall. The figure told the witness that it was not the right time for contact but promised to return.

Date: April 15 1973
Location:  Bt. Manor & Penn, PA
Time:  late afternoon
Summary:  During the late afternoon on the road between Manor and Penn, Pennsylvania twelve witnesses saw a disc-shaped object, between 35-60 feet in diameter, that came within 70 meters of a car, causing the car’s headlights to dim. During the night of April 15-16 more than a dozen witnesses reported observations of UFOs in the area of Penn and Manor, Pennsylvania, near the larger town of Jeanette. Among these was the report of a single witness who was driving near the Manor, Pennsylvania Power plant at 10:55 p.m. when he observed a large glowing object over the nearby railroad tracks. It was just above the trees, and the light from the object illuminated the immediate area with an intense white color. The witness pulled over to the side of the road and got out for a better look. The object, no more than a hundred yards away, was about 400 yards west of the power plant and approximately 10 feet above the trees. The object itself was completely illuminated but apparently solid in construction and about three car lengths in size. It had a dome like structure on top, which was the same bright color as the rest of the object. Around the main section were 2 or 3 rows of multi-colored lights, or square windows. One was whitish, the next red, and the third a blue or green hue. From the left side of the UFO a line or cord extended some 30 yards, and at the end of the cord floated a human form some eight to ten feet tall, similar to the “Apollo astronauts walking in space”. It was of a purple or orange color. The witness did not see the humanoid form retracted into the UFO; rather it disappeared like “a string of lights.” The witness had left his lights on and engine running when he got out of his vehicle, and he noticed that the headlights had dimmed to the strength of a weak flashlight. When the object departed, the headlights came back on as bright as before. The object made a high-pitched sound “like a spinning top” when it departed. “You could hear the trees blowing” as it went over them. The encounter lasted three to four minutes.

Location:  Manor Pennsylvania
Time:  2255
Summary:  During the night of April 15-16, more than a dozen witnesses reported observations of UFOs in the localized area of Penn and Manor, Pennsylvania, near the larger town of Jeanette. Among these was the report of a single witness who was driving near the Manor Power plant when he observed a large glowing object above nearby railroad tracks, just above the trees. Light from the object illuminated the immediate area, and the witness pulled over to the side of the road and got out for a better look. The object, no more than a hundred yards from the witness, was about 400 yards to the west of the power plant and approximately 10 feet above the treetops. The illumination was of an intense white, and the object itself completely illuminated but apparently solid in construction and about “3 car lengths” wide. It had a dome like structure on top the same bright color as the rest of the object. Around the main section were 2 or 3 rows of lights, or square windows, of a somewhat multi-color-one whitish, another red and the third a blue or green hue. More interesting than the object was “something” that appeared outside it, similar to the Apollo astronauts that were photographed “walking in space.” From the left side of the UFO a line extended some 30 yards at the end of which floated a form of some 8 or ten feet tall, of a purple or orange color. The witness did not say it was specifically human form, but it did appear to be similar to a human torso. He did not see the attendant object retracted into the UFO; rather it disappeared like “a string of lights.” He had left his lights on and engine running when he got out; 3-4 minutes, the headlights dimmed as low as a weak flashlight. When the object departed, the lights came back on as bright as before. The object made a high-pitched sound “like a spinning top” when it departed. “You could hear the trees blowing” as it went over them.

Location:  Kempsey, NSW

Summary:  Four people were out driving when one said she saw an egg shaped object drop out of the sky in the south-east and disappear behind trees, in a fraction of a second. 200 metres later they noted a distant glow in a paddock. They returned to the spot where the girl had seen the light, and as they arrived there it seemed that the car’s headlights blacked out momentarily. All then saw the object apparently landed on open ground. It seemed domed shaped and reddish-orange in colour. After watching for five minutes they left the area.

One of the witnesses, a 13-year old boy, said he watched the object through binoculars and could see a “big bubble on it and I saw silver along with the lights.” A number of adults reporting the sighting said the object hovered above the mountain for several moments before apparently landing. The UFO watchers said they saw the object take off around 11P.M. and head west.

Location: Near Mull Highlands Scotland
Time: daytime
Summary: A passenger onboard a bus glanced out the window as the bus stopped to let another car pass and was startled to see, standing on a peat field a small human like figure about 18 inches tall.

He was described as having a thin, keen face, brown curly hair, wearing a bright blue coat with a very white shirt with rolled up sleeves, and he had a small bag at his side. She lost sight of the figure as the bus drove away.
