Time: night
Summary: A man hunting in the area saw a strange craft on the ground with three figures walking around it wearing green suits and some sort of helmet. When the witness turned his head away for a second the craft and the figures were gone; he said they just vanished in plain sight. Around the same time a sheep herder was herding a flock in Indian Reservation land when one night while he was laying in his tent listening to his radio, he saw a strange flying craft with bright lights on it fly over his campsite and land on a hill a short distance away. At the same time his radio stopped playing. He started to get up but heard a voice outside of his tent say, “Do not get up, and stay in your tent.” He tried to get up anyway but he discovered that he was paralyzed completely and could not move. A short time later the craft rose into the sky and left the area. Then he was able to move and his radio began to play again.

Time: Dec. 4, 1973; Turin, Italy

Thousands of people in this northern industrial city reported seeing a mysterious flying object  hovering over the city tonight. The sighting, registered on radar screens at Turin’s airport and acknowledged by local police headquarters, was the latest in a  rash of reported sightings of unidentified flying objects in northern Italy. … The object seen tonight, clearly visible to the naked eye, seemed to rest motionless in the air for several minutes and rotated on its axis, witnesses said. Six police patrols were sent to investigate the phenomenon, but as they reached a spot more or less underneath the object it suddenly shot upwards at great speed and disappeared, police sources said.  (Turin, Dec. 4 [Reuter]; Washington Post, Dec. 5, 1973, headline: Thousands in Turin Witness UFO.)

8:50 p.m. While checking on a strange object seen near the Braden River, the witness started to turn his car around, and the high beams from his car picked up a silvery reflecting object hovering 20 feet above the river. A tube extended from the object to the surface of the water. “I just sat there a second,” he stated, then he took his camera from the car and took two photographs, using a strobe. The camera was a Canon FT-QL with a 55mm lens. (MUFON UFO Symposium Proceedings, 1974, pp. 52-52).

Summary: Dec. 13, 1973; Ellwood City, PA
On a crisp, clear night a couple reported seeing a frightening object as they were about to get in their car. The UFO was described as a red light in the sky. As the object moved towards the couple, a green light adjacent to the red light came on and within minutes the object was moving at an incredible speed at right angles to the east. While the object was moving, the red and green lights remained on. Losing sight of the UFO, they got into their car and drove away. The witnesses reported that they saw what seemed to be the same object about a mile and a half from the first point, but this time the UFO was making very large circular motions over a golf course. The couple stopped their car and turned off the ignition to listen for sounds coming from the object, but there were none. They watched intently for about 5 minutes before the object disappeared.

Location: Vilvorde Belgium
Time: late night
Summary: Upon arising to go to the bathroom, the 28-year old witness observed from his kitchen window a small figure in the enclosed courtyard behind his house. The entity wore a close fitting, luminous green coverall and had a clear spherical helmet over his head, which was attached by a tube to a backpack. He was using an implement similar to a mine detector to examine brickbats in the courtyard. When the witness played his flashlight on the scene, the being turned toward the window and held up one hand, displaying the V-sign with two fingers. The head was dark except for two brightly luminous eyes, over which were seen eyelids that blinked by lowering over the luminous iris. The entity then turned toward the wall enclosing the yard and walked up the sides stiff legged, at right angles, clearing the top and disappearing from view on the far side. Several minutes later, a disc with flashing colored lights and a transparent dome on top, rose from the other side of the wall. Inside the dome the witness could see the little being; it rose vertically slowly, rocked back and forth and then shot off into the sky at high speed. The witness had had one other observation four months earlier, with others, on the Belgian seaside; and four months later he, his wife, and others saw still another object as they drove to Brussels.
