Location:  Sacramento California
Time: 2100
Summary: The witness had been outside using his telescope when he caught sight of a dark triangular shaped craft with dark circular areas near each apex, moving silently overhead. He then apparently blacks out. He then wakes up standing in the middle of the yard watching the object pass overhead making a hissing sound. It had what appeared to be a row of vents along its top back end and two dull red, glowing areas on the rear. Later the witness was able to recall being taken onboard the object. Inside several seven-foot tall beings with domed heads, no mouths or necks and long wrapped around eyes examined him. At one point he recalled sitting near a console and seeing a set of tube like wires being stuck at the base of his skull.

Summary: Mr. Norberto Iglesias was crossing a street when suddenly the streetlights seemed to go out. Moments later he found himself standing in the middle of a field. Nearby sat an object that glowed a “gray-blue” color about 6 to 8 meters in length, it appeared to be smooth and circular. Suddenly he became aware of two “men” standing next to him, one that touched him. They were about 1.55 meters in height. The men wore tight-fitting gray blue coveralls. Since the field was brightly lit by the bright moonlight he could see that the men had dark brown hair, with fine chiseled features and appeared young. The witness heard a voice in his head telling him to be calm. The man standing to his right then offered him a “round pill” which he swallowed. The men then bade him farewell and walked back to the landed glowing craft. The witness then found himself back in the street unaware how he got there.

At an isolated point along the river Orval Wyman and his wife decided to take some photos of the scenery. When they had the film developed one of the frames shows a bluish jar shaped light resting on a square rock, which appears to have been manufactured, inside the object there appears to be several orange tinted dots. On the right side of the object, sitting on some rocks are two or three small grayish brown beings, more monkey-like than human looking. They appear to be staring intently at the glowing blue jar like light. The witnesses do not recall seeing anything when the picture was taken.

Location. Montreal Quebec Canada
Date: September 1973
Time: 0230A
A couple driving home to Montreal came upon a taxicab standing at an angle at the corner of Rue Sherbrooke and Rue St. Donat. There were no houses on that side of the street, only a torn up area where subway construction was going on. The wife noticed in the cab a man “covered with band aids.” The husband (driver) slowed down as he passed the cab and rolled down his window, and then saw a strange and frightening “man.” The man’s head was shaped like a shell (pointed at top, with no neck) and had very piercing dark eyes, which had neither pupils or iris, and no eyelashes or eyebrows. The cranium was bulging; there was no nose, and only an indistinct mouth. The husband is sure he saw the actual skin (which was a “phosphorescent” white), not a mask of any kind. The being made a gesture like a salutation as they drove on. Time of observation, 3 or 4 seconds.

Summary: A 4-year old boy, awakened by a rising and falling humming sound, saw a headless “man” standing at the foot of his bed. It had huge 6 fingered hands, and wore tight black or dark gray clothing, with a black belt that expanded and contracted as it breathed. On its right arm was a black strap attached to something like a radio, with antennae. It suddenly vanished, but outside the bedroom door the boy saw 6 similar ‘men,” who likewise vanished. The boy rushed to the window and saw a blue domed disc parked on the garden lawn; it rested on 4-wheeled legs, and had square black portholes. He could see the last of the entities climbing a ladder into the UFO. He ran to wake his mother, but by the time she got there the UFO had gone.

Location. Black Hills National Forest, South Dakota
Date: September 1973
Time: 1645
Elizabeth Richmond and her husband were returning home on State Road 24 when they sighted a red glowing object rounded on the top and flat on the bottom. It was sun-like, four times as wide as the sun and much more red. It hovered, appeared solid, and had an outline. The next thing they recalled was seeing the sun in the west, realizing that what they had just seen was not the sun. When they got home they realized that they had arrived an hour later than they should have arrived. Years later under hypnosis Elizabeth recalled that the car had lifted quickly off the road and in an instant they were inside the bottom of the huge circular craft. Alien beings quickly but gently took them out of the car and into separate rooms. The beings were about 4 or 5 ft tall with large dome shaped baldheads, huge black wrap-around eyes, small noses, and slits for mouths. They had long dangling arms with claw-like nails, and were dressed in metallic like gray jumpsuits. Elizabeth lay on a table with three aliens on each side and one at her feet. She was terrified but could not scream. One alien took hold of her hand and told her telepathically no to be afraid. An instrument was put up her nose into her head. She felt nothing. Then she was put into a sitting position and something was done to the back of her head. The aliens discovered that she was wearing a wig. This caused some merriment, and one alien touched his own baldhead, perhaps indicating they should wear them. After that she was carried to another room and the alien who had held her arm came in and sat before her. Taking her hands in his, he said his name was “Maag” and he was happy to see her again. She was told that she and him had been mates and that that they had two daughters who were now aboard the spacecraft. He asked to see them. The humanoid then touched a light, doors opened and two beautiful aliens entered the room. They rushed across the room and embraced Elizabeth. They said she had volunteered to reincarnate on Earth (as did many others) to help usher in a new era of world peace, and we would learn more about it later—when the time was right. They said that our planet will soon be undergoing great change, and we will need their help. It would be the beginning of an era of world peace.

Epsom racetrack jockey Peter Leather observed a domed disc with a rim, flashing and surrounded by a blue haze, land on the downs near the edge of the racecourse. An entity of humanoid appearance and about 5-feet tall emerged from the object, but was too far away to be seen in any detail. He carried in his hand an implement like a flashlight, although this did not emit a beam of light. Frightened, the witness ran form the area and did not see its departure. Examination of the site the next day disclosed no traces.

Summary: The witness remembers waking up in the middle of the night and being approached by a man dressed in all white. He took her by the hand and then both appeared to be flying over a gray choppy sea. They flew towards a huge octagonal shaped object with large windows, which seemed to hover just above the water. Next she was inside the object. Inside she saw several men and women in blue coveralls sitting and operating various consoles and terminal screens. A beautiful woman with long blond hair came over to the witness and spoke to her. She told the witness that they were monitoring the earth and were able to control certain disasters for their own interests and to prevent over-population.

Location: Near Milroy Indiana
Time: 1430
Summary: Part time preacher, Conner Corey had prayer with his sister’s family in northern Kentucky and then headed north toward his home in Indiana. He stopped at Greensburg, Indiana and placed some religious tracts in autos parked there. He was on State Road 3 near Milroy when he noticed, in his rear view mirror, what appeared to be a dark green car with fenders like barrels. Suddenly it was very close to his rear window, and now looked like a van, but had a large curved windshield. A buzzing sound filled the air and he observed two indistinct human-like figures with shoulder length hair inside the object. There was a brilliant flash and the buzzing ceased. The witness continued to watch the scene on his rear view window by looking in his rear view mirror. Suddenly it looked like water filled his rear window. Then what resembled eagles moved across the top of the window and he felt the sensation of flying into the air. Next, he found himself looking at the inside of an indirectly lighted room. Three ordinary looking men in gray clothes came up into the room—two of them wearing hospital surgery-type masks. This scene faded and was replaced by a distant aerial view of an earth-like surface. A planet or moon came up between two mountains in the distance. Following this he viewed a water covered surface from a lower altitude. Situated in the middle of this surface was a huge dark cross-like area. Two man-like figures emerged from the center of this area and became luminous. They moved toward him as if they were on a conveyor belt, and steadily increased in size. The dark eyed figures were dressed in tight-fitting suits that had a cloak and sash tied in front. The on-coming figures seemed about to burst right out of his rear view mirror, and for the first time his intense desire to watch gave way to fear. At this moment he was released as his eyes dropped from the mirror and he found himself looking at a slow moving Amish buggy as he sped down the highway. The preacher’s radio and watch malfunctioned after this event. He does not know with certainty how much time he could have lost on his journey home. He thought he was driving about 50 mph, and he was sure he traveled ¾ of a mile during the contact. Don Worley writing in UFO Universe summer 1993, apparently spoke about the same witness who in April of 1973 while working in his auto parts shop in Milan Indiana and after having photographed a UFO was visited by two very strange looking humanoids described as having long hair and pale expressionless faces and wearing tang clothing with very 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.

Summary: The witness was a passenger in a semi-trailer on Route 2 enroute to Perth. She awoke to observe a brightly lit egg shaped object on the ground to the left of the road. Walking towards an open door was a normal sized figure of human appearance; a second occupant was seen seated within the object, through a squarish window, looking upward at something in the vehicle. As the truck passed, the light rapidly faded until, by the time she got the driver to stop, only a single white light was visible. Both figures wore white silvery suits. She said she had been awakened by a “voice” just prior to her observation.

While driving toward Ijui about 1:30 a.m., a group of motorists saw a luminous yellow egg-shaped object approach their car and begin pacing them to the left side apparently 2-3 km away. When the driver blinked the headlights off and on, the object “reproduced the same signals.” The driver and some passengers then stopped the car and got out, waving their arms. The object was very close to the ground and appeared to be about to land. They resumed their trip and after a while the object, which continued to pace them,  beamed a light in the direction of the car. One of the passengers said that she had the impression something or someone was trying to contact her mentally. (Inforespace, August 1975, No. 22; translated from the French by Jacques Deschenes.)

At 7:45 p.m. a young woman and her father were driving through a mostly swampy area, when upon rounding a bend in the road they saw a luminous bright orange object shaped like a flower pot (truncated cone) hovering at low altitude about 200 meters off the road, almost directly over an electric power station. The upper edge seemed jagged and had sparkling antenna-like protrusions at either end. The object was dazzling to look at and seemed to be vibrating slightly. As they pulled abreast of the power station the object’s luminosity diminished and it flew away, rising gradually in a slight curve and disappeared. (The case was investigated by Yves Toussaint of SOBEPS, Brussels, Belgium.)

13-year old boy and other younger children watched a lighted disc shaped object slowly descend over the area. It then hovered silently overhead. They could see three lighted windows and behind them several occupants that appeared to be looking down. They were described as having large oblong shaped heads that seemed too big for their thin necks. They appeared to be leaning on something, and their long skinny arms were crossing each other. The craft suddenly turned its lights off and ascended rapidly out of sight.

Summary: The witness was driving a truck from L’Anse about dusk when he saw a silver gray object, about 80 ft in diameter, glide across the road to hover just above the car in front of him. The car abruptly stopped, and he had to brake hard to avoid hitting it. As he stopped the truck he saw a woman get out of the car ahead and kneel down in the grass to pray with a rosary. He ran to the woman and found she was not hurt; meanwhile the object hovered overhead at an altitude of about 90 ft. It then moved off to the west to hover again, while it hovered its bottom lights were multicolored, but when it moved they turned magenta purple. There was a red “stone like” light on top of a windowed cupola. At this time he saw in a window the silhouette of a man with short blond hair; he waved, and the man waved back. Then the UFO rose, with a “high hum” and shot away to the NE. He found that the woman had not seen the UFO. His batteries were now normal.

Summary: Joseph Cottrell, 42, a machinery inspector, went outside for a breath of air and saw a glowing ball “like a ball of fireflies” 500 yards away. He began to walk toward it, upon which it “burst” into 7 smaller units which rapidly and silently approached him, glowing alternately red, white, and green. They came to a stop about 100 ft away and an altitude of 50 ft, and he saw they were 6-9 ft in diameter. Realizing that “there were alien beings inside the glowing balls,” he asked “Why me”? Telepathically he heard an answer, “Why not you?” After 10-15 minutes he ran back to his house, loaded his camera, and returned with his son, Wayne, and a shotgun; Wayne carried a 22-caliber rifle. The luminous objects were now 120-150 ft away at an altitude of 35 ft, in a group of 4 and another 3. He heard a telepathic question “Are you going to shoot us?” He replied “No.” Then a beam of light appeared at his feet, and passed all over his body, pausing at sites of old injuries. He thought, “They were making a Xerox copy of me.” The intensity of the beam was increased to a point where he felt very uncomfortable; when he complained, it was reduced again. Meanwhile he was carrying on a telepathic conversation; “I was imprinted with a new world of friendly alien being.” They showed him pictures of “glass like cities, energy systems and components”, and warned against nuclear energy as dangerous. About an hour passed, and the objects had come very close; Mr. Cottrell realized that “they wanted us to go with them.” He raised his hands in protection; the objects immediately returned to their former position, and after a few minutes disappeared.

Summary: Julian Garside was riding home from work on a friend’s motorbike when the two young men saw 3 bright triangular lights, or shapes, gliding uphill through the woods near the road. They stopped and, out of curiosity, decided to follow. The shapes speeded up and the boys noticed an odor like burning oil. When they reached the top of the hill, a quarter mile from the road, the figures had vanished; above them, however, they observed a small, round orange light, like a road crossing beacon. It vanished in about a minute. There had been no path through the woods, and the three objects (or figures) appeared to glide straight through the undergrowth, leaving no traces. The odor of oil was the only trace left behind.

The main witness was walking through a local park along with some friends when a strange heavy mist began enveloping the area. There seemed to be a silvery glow coming from the center of the mist and the witness felt strongly attracted towards it. As she got closer she saw a beautiful silvery object or “starship” on the ground. She went inside the object and saw several of her friends being led towards different sections of the object. She was taken to a large circular room of transparent blue color with two transparent doors at each end. The occupants of the object were all apparently beautiful human like beings. Through a large window she saw a woman sitting on what appeared to be a communications console. The witness sat on a chair in the center of the room and ate from a bowl of fruit on a table. A man entered the room and walked into what appeared to be a circular shower stall, removed some dirty coveralls, the stall lit up and the man then emerged wearing shiny clean coveralls. The witness felt that she experienced some type of mind transplant or control onboard the object, which changed her life.

Summary: While picking up mushrooms on the woods on Mont Real, the witness observed a 4-foot tall dwarf standing at the edge of the clearing 100 feet away. As he grabbed something from the ground a second identical being joined him from the woods beyond. They looked perfectly human and wore beige coveralls that covered them up the wrists and neck; their feet were obscured by high grass. Their arms were slender and their hands normal. Each wore a black beret on his head. Thinking they were children, the witness called out to them, whereupon they laughed aloud, then turned and fled into the brush behind them. A few seconds later, the witness saw a dull blue gray oval shaped object, about 5 meters wide, rise up beyond the trees, ascending to a height of 20 feet, making a slight whistling sound. There it paused briefly, then departed toward the northeast rapidly and in total silence. At the landing site, a bush, and some grass had been flattened, suggesting that the object had been hovering a foot or so above the ground.

The father of one of the girls then went into the woods in search of the creature and stayed there for over an hour. When he returned he refused to talk about what he had seen in the woods. At the same time he was in the woods several people watched a silvery object hovering over the woods. At one point it emitted a beam of light into the woods.

8:30 p.m. Sheriff’s officers trailed an unidentified flying object {UFO) from the edge of Quincy to Baldwin Field before it disappeared . A night deputy manning the sheriff’s  radio watch said a call was received about 8:30 p.m. Saturday from Halfpap’s Trailer Court that an object was in the sky near there. The radio officer said patrol deputies sent in response to the call sighted the object shortly after reaching the area and began trailing it. The object moved east to Baldwin Field, where it became stationary. Officers said a the object hovered a short time and then disappeared. The radio officer said that apparently while the patrol officers were keeping the object under observation at the airport, a call was received from the Camp Point area reporting the object. The officer said the caller told him that dogs were barking and other animals seemed upset. A check with the FAA at Baldwin Field showed no planes were in the area at the time, the radio officer said. Radar in Kansas  City, Mo., reported only an airplane near Hannibal, Mo., moving west, the officer said. (SL-72, 14)

A woman observed an object for 3 to 4 minutes which appeared to be solid, oval shaped with slightly obtuse-angled ends and glowing with a red-orange color, brighter at the edge than in the center. The object was moving back and forth with a pendulum-like motion. The brightness seemed to be pulsating at a rate (about every two seconds) corresponding to the rate of the swinging. The witness reported that her barking dog caused her to look out of the window where she subsequently observed the object. There are no other known witnesses to the sighting.  However, the local newspaper reported a similar colored light being seen shortly after this sighting.

The witnesses, Claude Champoux, Florent Papillon and a man called J R were camping near a lake when they heard a loud engine-like sound coming from a nearby field. Upon investigating the source the men spotted an oval-shaped metallic object on the ground. The object was silvery in color and emitted neon-like orange lights that changed colors to blue, red, etc. A strange man-like figure, metallic or robot like in appearance stood next to the object. He either wore a reflective metallic suit or was himself made out of metal; his body emitted bright silvery flashes. While on the ground the object emitted a sound resembling that of a transformer. Soon the strange character disappeared into the object, which then rose up moving up and down like a yo-yo, it then accelerated and disappeared at high speed. They estimated the craft to have been about 600 ft in diameter.

One lady talking to another when a large dome-shaped light-form appeared between them. The thing had a defined shape and just rested there for two minutes, or so. Then it disappeared by going into the ground. (Mike Swords; Source: W.C.Chalker. Tyringham-Dundurrabin Flap [mini-monogragh or case file] ,18pp., 1973. (CUFOS files).

Summary: While enroute to work, the witness motorcycle misfired and stopped as a dazzling bright light appeared on the road ahead. As he approached, he saw it was a luminous ovoid object, with smoke underneath, hovering just above the ground. A “man” suddenly appeared and came up to the witness, putting his left hand on the witness shoulder and offered “reassuring words.” The man was about 2 meters tall thin, wearing a uniform like aluminum; a large helmet rested on his shoulders with a snorkel like tube on the right side. His face was “like a human face covered with a nylon stocking” with slanted eyes. He carried something like a pistol in his right hand, pointed at the ground. He asked the witness where he was going; he replied, “To my job.” The being then said he must return to the “object” and told the witness not to inspect it too closely. He entered it from beneath, and it rose vertically, with a sound like a swarm of bees, and then moved off horizontally. The motorcycle then started normally.

Summary: Serge Lisboa, 38, his wife Maria, 38, and Maria Marmela Santos Costa, 21, were driving to Porto and had just passed Tua when they heard a humming sound and got out to see a white luminous lens shaped object, emitting flashes of red light from a transparent dome on its top, at about 100 ft altitude. It appeared to be only 6 ft wide and 3 ft high. They drove on and had passed Alijo when they heard a humming sound again, this time modulated and rhythmic. At the same time the driver “began to notice some difficulties with his motor.” However no object was seen. About 5 km from Villa Real they came upon a bright green luminous cylindrical object resting on the road. Lisboa braked and just managed to avoid it. At the same moment, the passengers in the car noticed two flashing red lights on the left side of the road, at the level of the roadside gravel. As they approached they saw that these lights were on the tip of 20′ antennas on the helmets of two short men in astronaut costume, who were lying on their backs beside the road, their feet toward the road. Their suits were shiny and “lead-like”, giving the impression of a malleable foil, and they wore spherical helmets with rectangular windows, and gloves on their hands. The car passed within 6 ft of these beings, who were about 5 ft tall. Frightened, Lisboa tried to accelerate, but the car was slow to respond. As they passed the men and the green object, they could hear “an indistinct gurgling sound.” Then they saw the two humanoids rise from the ground, rigidly without moving their arms or legs. They had small “knapsacks” on their backs. The two humanoids then rose into the air, and disappeared form view above the car.
