Date: February 1973
Location:  Tres Arroyos Buenos Aires Argentina
Time: night
Summary: Ventura Maceiras had a second encounter with two entities; one of the two approached the witness, smiling, and greeted him by placing his left hand on his breast. There followed an exchange of communication telepathically in which Maceiras learned the name of his visitor, “Arnoil,” and his companion, “Ninquier.” They came from the planet “Prunio,” which belongs to the empire of “Lobernia,” its major city was ‘Arlenquistan,” and they were now in their 14,320th year. The witness was shown a book illustrating a surgical operation; three figures resembling globes that contained cancer viruses; and he was instructed on how cancer could be cured. Our earth-moon system was called “Cleotor.” The entities made their pitch for goodwill and disclosed numerous other items of interest. They were approximately 1.75 cm tall, had small round ears, “slit eyes,” a small, flattened nose, and short fine hair. Before they left they warned Maceiras of impending major seismic disturbances. It was not reported if they arrived or left in a UFO.

Summary:  A couple was parked near a kiosk. The nearest streetlight began acting up, dimming off, then on, and back again, cycling like this until it had diminished to a faint glow. Then, beyond some trees in the general direction of the light, they saw a bright “ball” rise. It was golden colored and the apparent size of the full Moon. It hovered. It began to change colors, sliding through the spectrum from gold to orange to deep red. The couple’s curiosity got them to decide to drive nearer the Ball; but to their consternation, they could not get the car to function. Only the headlights worked, and that just barely, at a low dull level. Frightened now, they decided to wait in the car for the Ball to leave. Then, small, red, glowing balls ejected from the larger object, and sailed forward and dropped down behind the trees. The Ball then rose slightly and began to move away. When it disappeared, the streetlight returned to normal function, and the car was able to be started. The couple left the scene without looking any further into the area.

Summary: Feb.,1973; Wood River Junction, RI
Day after day, week after week numerous residents claim that they have seen a “huge bright white light,” moving slowly above their community. More than 250 people have reportedly seen the object since it was first sighted in February. The UFO has been observed by many residents hovering soundlessly at tree at tree-top level for minutes at a time before disappearing. Many have claimed the object is huge, with estimates ranging from “bigger that a car” to 1/2 the size of a house. A number of the sightings according to local reports have occurred near the United Nuclear Corp. plant located nearby. United Nuclear operates a waste reclamation plant. Witnesses to these sightings have reported observing what appear to be military aircraft searching or patrolling the area following UFO sightings. Thomas Gariepy, a reporter for the Providence Evening Bulletin, is among those residents who have observed a UFO in recent months. (Reference: UFO INVESTIGATOR, May 1973, page 2)

Summary: Feb. 2, 1973; Ohura Beacon (area), Auckland, New Zealand
2:02 a.m. Intense blue-white light paced airliner for 20-25 seconds, navigation instruments malfunctioned (UFOE II, Section III). Table 1, 116,Captain Peter Telling, flying a Grand Commander aircraft at a altitude of 10,000 ft over the Ohura Beacon area thought he had a fire in his starboard engine. His flight position was 157° radial from Ohura Beacon. About 30 yards from the aircraft was a ball of intense bluish-white light, much like a welding arc, that was 20 to 20 feet in diameter, and stayed with his aircraft for about 20 to 25 sec. The Automatic Direction Finding Compass, and both the gyroscopic compass and magnetic one, went haywire and spun at a speed of about 12 revolutions per minute. All directional equipment remained non-functional until he passed over the Wanganui area. The ADF needle rotating aimlessly, the magnetic compass screwed up (not reliable) and needles rotated several rpm for some times. The VOR stayed locked on the source.

Date: February 4 1973
Location:  32 km NE Kimba South Australia
Time: 2150
Summary: While driving from Iron Knob to Kimba on Route One, Brian Hunt and his passenger, Miss Sharon Kinckler, observed a red light in a clearing to the right of the road. As they passed by, the two observed a red orange lighted area of rectangular shape, about 10 feet high by 5 feet wide, in which could be seen a sharply defined figure of what appeared to be a man in a white spacesuit. The figure was of normal size and appeared to be of ordinary shape, and was suspended in the lighted area some 2-3″ above the ground, and floated in the middle of the lighted area some 2-3 feet above the base. Mr. Hunt called the object and figure to his companion’s attention as he accelerated past the scene, and Miss Kinckler, upon turning in her seat, said the orange glow seemed to spread across the entire highway behind them. When they arrived at Miss Kinckler’s home in Kimba, the local police were called and a constable accompanied them back to the site. No traces were found. Two other independent witnesses were subsequently located; Mr. Allen Degnor, a Ceduna truck driver who passed by the same area at 2200 and described essentially the same phenomenon; and Mr. Max Inglis, who had passed Brian and Sharon just before they came to the site.

Location: Mill Spring, Missouri
Time: 2200
Summary: During a night of several other UFO sightings in the vicinity, Mrs. Edith Boatwright was lying in her bed when she saw a flashing light. Getting out of bed she looked out the window and saw a strange craft hovering over the utility wires. It had several lighted portholes and Edith thought she could see people or “objects” inside. It was making a quiet swooshing sound. It had an umbrella like protrusion on top. The witness was adamant that the craft was not a helicopter.

Date: February 22 1973
Location: Moorooduc Crossing Victoria Australia
Time: night
Summary: On the night prior to this experience, Mrs Maureen Puddy “heard” a voice calling her name. Next morning she perceived a “message” telling her to return to the site of her 1972 encounter. She contacted two investigators of the Victorian UFO group and drove with them to the site. On route she briefly “saw” a man sitting in the front seat of the car; her passengers did not see the figure. As she approached the spot of her earlier encounter, she saw the same figure standing outside the car. The others saw nothing. The figure was normal sized, wearing a white ski suit-type of coverall tucked in at the wrists and covering the feet. He had long blond hair. He beckoned to Mrs Puddy, but she did not respond; instead, she appeared to lose consciousness, although she described what she was seeing to the two passengers of the car; she was in a round room lit by an unknown source; the figure appeared in the room with her, and the room was shaped like a large mushroom with a stem at the bottom and a hemispherical dome on top. It appeared to have an inner hemisphere that appeared to be wobbling, and had what looked like hieroglyphics on it. The figure told her to describe what she saw, which she did; her companions heard this description but still saw nothing themselves. She saw no doors or windows in the room and began to get frightened; she started to cry and ‘woke up” with tears in her eyes, but she could recall nothing of what happened in this trance-like stat, or what she just described to the others. About a week later she was driving with her son, seated in the front passenger seat. The same “man” again appeared, this time sitting between them. Apparently her son did not see him. His presence was accompanied by an abrupt change in the weather, which had been rainy and low visibility; it suddenly cleared, and Mrs Puddy could see for miles. The figure vanished abruptly, and the rainy conditions again prevailed.

Date: February 26 1973
Location: McWaters, Quebec Canada
Time: 2100
Summary: Helene, 14, was driving the family snowmobile near McWaters, with her 2 brothers and 7 teen aged friends, all on snowmobiles, when a giant “headlight” rose from behind them and passed over the group, illuminating the whole landscape. After it had gone, all the boys went off on a race, leaving Helene behind. The brilliant light source reappeared and flew back over her; she estimated it as 60 ft in diameter. Suddenly its light went out. Helen thought it must be a plane that had crashed somewhere behind her. She turned around and went back about 500 ft, then got off and walked toward a very large dark bulk which she thought she could make out among the trees. She was within perhaps 50 ft of it when a small, cold hand coming from over her shoulder seized her by the chin and tried to drag her backwards. Thinking it must be her younger brother playing a joke, she broke free and pushed her attacker back so that he fell sitting into the snow. Turning to face him, she realized that it was a childlike figure smaller than her 13-year old brother. She ran back to the snowmobile and got a flashlight, turning it on the person, who was now slowly walking toward her. She saw a being about 45″ tall, clad in dark, close fitting clothing with a “plated” surface, and wearing a helmet that covered his head down to the chin. Around his face the rim of a “visor”, reflected the light, and his enormous eyes also shone brightly in the light, like those of a cat. He was advancing with difficulty, perhaps because of the snow. Terrified, Helene dropped the flashlight, ran to the snowmobile, and fled on it. She was joined by the other snowmobiles, which were returning. Her left arm was paralyzed. She was taken to a doctor at Rouyn, who gave her a sedative. The next day several people went to the place, where they found a large patch of snow melted down to the ground, 50ft in diameter and shaped like a donut. Beside it were the tracks of 2 small bipeds, a few yards away from each other; the tracks were short and broad with a large protruding great toe.
