There they saw a bizarre creature, which could be seen just under the water, it wasn’t fish like, but had two short legs and a stubby upper body, with “crust like” flesh, partly covered in what appeared to be black fur. They followed the odd creature as it passed near the side of the boat. It was near the surface of the murky water. The feet could be seen and were described as looking like those of a chimp.

He lost his way in the woods and had stopped to look around, he suddenly heard some footsteps behind him and turned around, standing almost next to him was a seven-foot tall man with blond shoulder length hair, his skin was white and he was wearing a silvery wet suit type outfit and dark brown pants. The witness attempted to run, but felt numb with a tingly feeling in his legs and fell to the ground. The man then approached and pointed the palm o his hands at the witness. At that point the witness felt that he could move again and ran in a blind panic through the woods finally reaching the house.

Time:  6:00/7:00 P.M.
Summary:  In 1973, my father was in the U.S. Air force, stationed at RAF Alconbury. We lived in St Ives, on California Street, in Anglo-American housing. In those days, there was a wheat/corn field behind the house. I was five at the time. Which is why I don’t recall the specifics of time or date. One evening, after dark, I looked out of the upstairs window at the field. There, sitting in the corn, was what I thought was a merry go round. Which was strange, to say the least. I called to my mother and asked her if I could go down and “ride the merry go round.” She asked me what I was talking about. So I pointed it out to her. She became visibly frightened and angrily told me to go to bed. Which, of course, I did. Next morning, I went out to find and area of the corn pressed down flat. As an aside, we lived directly under the flight path of the runway of RAF Wyton. Vulcans on final would clear our roof by twenty feet. Years later, I learned that there had been UFO sightings in the are at that time. I still wonder about that “merry go round.”

Location. Arecibo Puerto Rico
Date: early June 1973
Time: 0400A
Having unloaded some merchandise from his truck, truck driver Crisanto Marvel Perez and a companion were napping in the truck when Perez was awakened by a noise; he dozed off again and was again awakened and, through a rearview mirror on the outside of the truck he observed three whitish figures approaching. His companion was still asleep. Through the opposite mirror he saw the three figures peer in the window behind his head; he remained still, as though asleep, but was able to see that they examined the inside of the truck with curiosity. They were generally normal in appearance except for a “parrot-like” nose, and either their skin was scaly or they wore clothes that had a scaly appearance. On their heads was a kind of helmet divided across the top from front to back by a crest. They spoke among themselves in an incomprehensible language that had a sound similar to that made by bats. After they had examined the inside of the truck, the beings moved off, and Perez woke up his companion to tell him what happened; the man was incredulous. Perez drove home and was “very excited,” going right to bed. He experienced a “strong fever and headache.” Earlier that night, en route to Arecibo, he had observed a star-like object that seemed to be pacing his car. He saw it again on a subsequent night, but did not see the beings again.

Guadalupe Cantu, 19, glanced through the kitchen window and saw an orange luminous object moving 30 feet above nearby rooftops. As it drew closer, he could see that it was a transparent disc shaped object, in which stood a hairy, ape like being without clothing; the entity was looking down toward him and the rest of the ground, its hand apparently resting on something. No machinery or controls could be seen. The UFO passed about a block away making no sound, and then went out of sight.

Summary: After taking his cows to the meadows a 60-year old rancher was walking back home in a very mountainous area near the village, when he observed at a forest clearing a large silvery bluish dome shaped craft resting on the ground on several protrusions. The craft had a shiny metallic surface. From the object emerged seven to ten human like figures wearing dark outfits, they descended to the ground via an extended ladder. On the ground some of the figures just stood and looked around, while others appeared to jump and the rest gesticulated. Everything was extremely silent. After a few moments the witness left the scene and did not see the object or its occupants depart.

2:15 to 2:30 a.m. The UFO had a series of bright running lights, much like one would see on any other aircraft. Suddenly, a large orange-red light was turned on beneath the UFO which lit up the entire landscape. The witness couldn’t tell if  it was from one source or several lights, but; it was all from toe same craft. He stopped and turned engine off, got| out and watched about ten or fifteen minutes.  “There wasn’t a sound,” he said. “And there was an airplane flying high overhead, which we heard. This was much closer, perhaps a thousand feet away, some 500′ feet off the ground.” The unusual item moved quickly to the north, then seemed to travel around the city of Springfield, to the east.

Location:  Port Jervis New York
Time:  late afternoon
Summary:  Two men in their late thirties were on the way home from fishing when on impulse they decided to pull over on Rio Dam and throw their lines for one last time. They were both about to cast the lines when they noticed an oval shaped craft flying low over the lake and approaching them. The craft was rusty to brownish purple in color and had a dull “matte to purple finish.” The object had about five portholes that emitted a green “fluorescent light” from inside. From the front of the object two purple pinkish beams of light swept forward and down to Rio Lake. The beams appeared to have “substance” inside them, apparently sucking up water from the river. The craft reached to about 100 feet away from the witnesses then they saw an entity inside the object. The entity had a leathery, wrinkled looking face and large pointed ears. Its skin was of a light brownish color, it had a round mouth, round eyes, and its face was flattened against the rectangular porthole of the object. It also had two hands thrown up against the window near its head. It moved its mouth and appeared to be exclaiming in great surprise upon seeing that he was being watched. Immediately the object accelerated to a high speed and continued its course quickly disappearing from sight at very low altitude over the dam.

UFOs were sighted by three young girls traveling Interstate 80, five ‘miles west of Princeton at approximately 3:38 a.m. State Police District 7 in Rock Island reported. The girls, ages 18 and 19, from Albany, N.Y., and Bristolville, Ohio, told investigating troopers that they had seen a silver, gray and black flying object emitting a green mellow light. The girls said that the object made several maneuvers in a rapid manner, and, prior to disappearing, two other objects were accompanying the first one. The girls said the object was flying in a southeast to northwest direction. Another traveler at the rest area, a Milwaukee man, allegedly photographed the objects with a high powered camera, but he had left the area before troopers arrived at the scene, troopers said.

Summary: 16-year old Kate Mansfield had gone out for a drive after arguing in her home and found herself driving on a lonely dark country road. She was near Panola Mountain on highway 155 when her car just suddenly stopped running. Kate then noticed a large glowing area over to her right in the woods. Frightened she attempted to start the car, to no avail. She then noticed a five-feet tall being with large head and large eyes standing in front of the car. The being opened her car door and removed Kate from the vehicle. The he escorted her to a landed craft over to where she had originally seen the glow in the woods. Outside the craft were several other beings of a similar description with metallic square boxes, apparently gathering rocks, plants, and things from the immediate area. These beings ignored Kate and continued with their work. She was then taken inside into a small rounded, gray room that had a musty odor. She then found herself undressed and on top of a table like structure. Several procedures were then performed, including a vaginal exam. After a while she was allowed to put her clothes back on and was then escorted back to the car. The being that escorted her back told her “not to remember.”

10:30 p.m. One resident reported seeing a large hovering aerial object described as round or pear-shaped with four or five red lights on top and bottom and a large white light atop. It was dome shaped at top and rounded at bottom with what appeared to be a partitioned frame within the window. Another resident said she saw the object while en route to a food market. For awhile it was above her auto at a height estimated at equivalent to a block or two. After moments it suddenly took off eastward at unbelievable speed, gradually disappearing. Lights on the object dimmed gradually before its departure. (SL-70, page 10)

Summary: Roberta T. observed from her patio what at first appeared to be a star-like object that descended until it came to a spot just above the trees beyond her patio, at which time it appeared to be a large, illuminated spherical object. As it hovered there a square opening appeared on the side facing her, like “garage doors opening.” Illuminated brightly from within, the witness observed a human like figure approach the opening from one side, cross over, and then bend down “to do something.” When she uttered an exclamation to herself he abruptly looked up and out at the witness, peering directly at her by leaning out of the opening. He was visible from the knees up and seemed to be wearing a tight garment. He “dropped his head down” as he looked at her and she could see he was tall, with a large head, and with hands that appeared to be busy working on instruments. At that point she heard a humming sound and looking off to her left she saw a second, smaller object approaching in the same direction. It passed a post on the patio and abruptly disappeared; she then looked back toward the first object and found it too had vanished. She then fell asleep and when she awoke later, found herself lying in a different position. Under hypnotic regression, she described seeing the same figure appear before her on the patio. She then describes in vague uncertain ways how she was told not to be afraid, and then “taken somewhere” by being floated upwards. She recalled seeing a dog that had been constantly barking also floating in the air. She was in some dark “enclosed” place where she couldn’t see and an instrument of some sort was placed on her head, which made her uncomfortable. There were others around her but she “felt” them rather than seeing them; she had the impression they were “talking” to each other in a language she could not understand. She had the impression there were two people present. When she awoke on the patio, it was some 4 or 5 hours later.

10:30 p.m. From a cabin on the Rothwell Ranch, two men watched as a bright light that had a ring around it rose from low on the ESE horizon, moved up-down, then left-right, for a distance of 15 degrees over a 30 minute period beginning at 10:30 p.m. The object silently radiated lines of concentric circles like heat waves. At one point a small light joined the first object. (Source: MUFON database of field investigations, case file dated July 9, 1973, field investigator Dan A. Rothwell).

Location: Western Arizona
Time: unknown
Summary: A disk shaped object crashed in the desert on the mountainous area in the extreme western part of Arizona, and was retrieved by the US military. The craft was about 8.4 to 8.7 meters in diameter and about 3.5 meters high, shaped like deep inverted saucer on top, installed on top of each other, with a rim or flat plate between the two parts. On top the disk possessed a small dome. The central rim was segmented by zigzagging structures. On the bottom, there were 3 landing props (they were possibly not outside when the disk was found). A door was opened on the lower section of the disk. The most amazing fact for the retrieval team was that the disk was apparently larger inside than what it looked from outside. The disk was transported to 29 Palms Marine corps base in Southern California (to an underground bunker), where it was placed suspended in a heavy net hanging from a large crane. A photographer was called from Norton AFB, California to photograph the object. The bodies of three aliens were found inside the craft. All three were dwarfs, about 1.0 meter in height, with extremely pale white “skin” (it was later established during an autopsy at Wright Patterson AFB that the white skin was merely a protective covering like pellicle and beneath it, was the real skin, which was lizard-like, and greenish-blue-gray in color). The entities had large black round eyes, and large hairless heads. All three Dwarfin (Dwarfs) were dressed in tight-fitting blue jumpsuits and had 3 fingers both on their hands and legs, with claws and webs. The bodies were later moved to Wright Patterson AFB by aircraft from the 29 Palms base. After a preliminary examination in 29 Palms, the disk was moved to the S4 underground base in Nevada. In February 1993 the disk was removed from S4 and taken to a new underground base on the White Sands missile range, New Mexico, where it is still located at the present. The origin of the disk was established as HD 5015 Cassiopeia Star system, 60 light years from Earth.
