Summary:  On a road 4 witnesses in a car suddenly saw a being standing on the side of the road. His size is above average and does not appear to have any facial features, his head is the color of clay and apparently deformed. He was wearing a gray-blue vest. The being then proceeds to empty from a container what appears to be oil, provoking a fire. The car continues on and 30km later they come upon a brush fire on the side of the road. At some distance, two beings walk into the middle of the road, in a stiff pace, without reacting to the vehicle headlights. The witnesses drive away from the area.

Summary:  Following a telepathic summons Enrique Castillo met a landed craft supposedly piloted by Venusians. He described them as rather tall, very much alike, but very human like. They told Castillo that they belonged to the same stellar organization as the Pleiadians, only that these were more advanced in many fields. Castillo had taken along a tape recorder, with which he captured what he claims was the whistling noise of the craft as it approached the landing site.

Location. Near West Palm Beach Florida
Date: July 1974
Time: evening
Donna Howard Johnson and her husband were driving on highway 441 when they noticed a large light very low on the horizon. The light kept up with the vehicle for several miles. The light was now at tree top level and the witnesses could now see that it was a disc shaped object. They stopped the car to watch. Around the center of the craft were alternative blue and white lights. The craft hovered in total silence for about ten minutes, then from the bottom center of the craft a figure resembling an astronaut was let down to the ground on a thin silver light or luminous rope. The figure was wearing a silvery suit. After the being was let down to the ground, the craft slowly headed directly toward the witnesses’ vehicle. The craft was dull silver gray in color and flew silently above the car. After the craft crossed the highway it changed back into a large light. It then zig zagged several times then became a star like speck and shot straight up quickly disappearing from sight.

Location. Near Alzada Montana
Date: July 1974
Time: night
Two witnesses had gone out looking for Indian caves near their cabin in a very isolated area. Towards the evening they heard weird metallic “clatter” like sounds. Thinking the noises were coming from the cabin they went to the cabin to investigate, it was getting dark at that point. Soon they saw lights flashing on the other side of the ravine. They decided to go through the trees and investigate the source. In a clearing they came upon several metallic “drum like” objects on the ground & what appeared to be sandbags or body bags lined up next to them. Frightened they ran back to the car to leave. In the car they saw what appeared to be large tear shaped shiny eyes, gold in color, that were floating around inside the vehicle. They then ran in the direction of an old house about 2 miles away, as they neared a haystack they saw a weird furry animal, which they called a “monkey spider,” about 3 1/2 foot tall, 2 1/2 foot wide with 6 legs. It was jumping up and down on the haystack. They ran back to the cabin and shut themselves in. They looked out the window towards where the lights where, across the ravine, & noticed that they were blinking on & off. The furry “animal” was now crouched right underneath the edge of the cabin window. Then they saw about 20 small men wearing white coveralls. These were about 3 to 4 foot tall. They started coming down the edge of the ravine, from the direction of the lights. They approached in a single file, marching through the trees & 2-foot tall grass. The little men approached the cabin t the edge of the tree line, 2 of them crouched down and crawled closer to the cabin. The witnesses went outside in order to get closer to the men, and perhaps communicate. Over in the trees they saw the eyes like the ones in the car, moving around within the foliage. All the time both witnesses could still hear the metallic “clatter.” One of the witnesses attempted to get close to little men, but these moved back & did not communicate with her. Then both witnesses decided to go back inside the cabin. Later during the night, small “train like” objects flew around the cabin above the ground. They carried small flashing lights on them & emitted a whooshing sound. Later, sometime during the night, they saw in the distance down a valley what appeared to have been a bright star. At times a bright light would come out of it. Later on they saw red lights flashing on the side of the bright light. At times the light would shine a beam of light toward the ground. By morning they heard a whooshing sound, ran back out and everything was gone. Looking around the cabin they found areas of flattened grass. The grass was trampled all around the cabin. At no time did the witnesses notice any facial features on the little men. The little men had walked normally, but would always stay near the tree line.

Location. Yakima, Washington
Date: July 1974
Time: night
A young man left a group of friends to meditate near a stream alone. During this meditative state, he claimed to receive communication from a Bigfoot. A hypnotist regressed the percipient to the time of his first encounter involving amnesia of 1-3/4 hours. He related seeing something big visible from the middle up to the top and which put a hand on his shoulder. The creature (later described as dark brown with friendly eyes and unmoving mouth) communicated with his mind that he wanted to get away from hunters, that he had a leader, and that he was willing to share fruit. The percipient saw a bunch of creatures looking down on him and he was mentally told that they were here before we were and that we are ruining their planet. The percipient declined any subsequent hypnotic regression sessions because it was “too much of a hassle”.

A young man and his girlfriend watched a silent round orange light passing slowly low over the area. It crossed the main highway then landed on top of a nearby hill. The man took his girlfriend home then drove his motorcycle to the hill. Climbing to the top, there he encounters two other men that had seen a circular object with a transparent cupola on top, with two moving shadows inside. The main witness now saw the object ascend and fly towards another nearby hill. He follows the object with his motorcycle but loses sight of it. He then becomes confused and notices a strange silence in the area. He then sees a large moving truck and follows it, after rounding a curve he realizes that the truck had disappeared into thin air. He turns on his high beams and sees a bright orange object with a crystal like cupola on the ground on the side of the road. The witness signals the object several times with his lights but gets no response. He then drives towards the lighted object but it suddenly vanishes, in its place he sees two large silent automobiles approaching slowly, he approaches the vehicles and sees 2 men and a woman in the first car and a man in the second. . They are all tall and blond, Nordic in appearance. They asked the witness several questions then drive off. The witness suffered a nervous breakdown soon after the incident. (The witness felt that the Nordic appearing people in the vehicles were somehow connected with the UFOs)

Location. Cowra New South Wales, Australia
Date: July 1974
Time: midnight
A blazing blue light blinded a young man, driving at about midnight, as he came over the crest of a hill. The light seemed to illuminate the entire countryside. The driver braked suddenly fearing a collision. The next thing he remembered was seeing the light move away from his car to a point 100m away in an adjacent field, where it converged into a beam about 15m across and 30m high. The beam shone down onto the ground whereupon apparent contact the grass seemed to be burning. The display remained there for about 2 minutes and then it disappeared. No trace of the phenomenon could be found. Next day the driver returned and confirmed the presence of an almost perfect circle of burnt grass about 15m in diameter.

Charles Silva had been taking a nap next to the local mineral baths when the roar of a motorcycle engine suddenly awakened him. He looked up to see a beautiful short dark haired woman sitting on top of a “Harley Davidson.” While conversing with her mostly about religion and current events he saw coming from behind a chain of mountains three round metallic disc shaped objects. The objects hovered silently above a nearby field holding a triangular formation. Meanwhile his strange female companion ignored the whole episode. Suddenly the objects became red hot in color, emitted an explosion, and disappeared. Eventually he was told by the woman that her name was “Rama” and that she was from a distant planet and was here on a mission.

Time: 2200
Mrs Moira J, a schoolteacher vacationing in Ontario, was at a lodge near Bancroft, by a lake. She had retired early and was reading in bed when she was overcome by intense vertigo, tried to get up to go to the bathroom and fell unconscious on the bed. When she came to, she discovered two strange figures standing at the foot of her bed. The room lights were out but the scene was lit by an unknown source on the floor to the sides of the figures. From foot to neck they were “wrapped” like mummies, but heavy set in the chests. There followed an exchange of information by telepathic means that lasted for perhaps half an hour; among the information was their disclosure that their home planet had an atmosphere twice as rich in oxygen as ours, that they had a monogamous social system and had no need for money, and that our planet was currently under the close scrutiny of about 50 alien civilizations with others that were less intensely interested in us. At the conclusion of the meeting, they left by the door to her room. She noticed that the lights were out in the hall before again losing consciousness. When she came top, she found that only 40 minutes had elapsed. Just prior to retiring, the witness had seen from her room window, a horizontal row of multi colored lights hovering motionless over the far side of the lake.

Summary:  Mrs Jackie Booth, mother of 3 children, had several UFO sightings in March & April; at the end of June, a curious and unexplained condition affected her eyes; light beams were emitted for a two hour period. In early July, traces as though from a landed UFO were found on the lawn. On the night of July 17, she was awakened and went to the front door where she saw two strange figures standing; about 5-foot tall, they had large heads that were flat on top, glowing eyes set wide apart, a slit like mouth, and had a grayish colored skin. Their arms were long, but she could not recall any details below the waist. They entered the house and appeared interested in Mrs Booth’s electric organ. She tried to talk to them, but they communicated with her telepathically, and she could “fell my thoughts leave my head.” They wanted her to play the organ, so she sat down and played scales; when she looked up, they had vanished. She went to bed convinced it had been a dream. Under hypnosis, she recalled additional details. None of her family had awakened during the incident. Other strange incidents occurred subsequently.

Summary: Mrs Patricia N and her 3 daughters, were driving around their neighborhood while waiting for the gas company to ‘fix” a strong odor of gas reported by at least 15 area residents. While driving south on Homewood Avenue they noticed a strange figure walking toward them on the sidewalk; he was 5-foot tall and walked with a forward lunge, arms swinging from side to side. He wore no shirt; the witness thought the chest was hairy, the girls did not; he wore dark trousers with no visible bottoms, extending to “pig like” feet, or hooves—definitely not normal feet. He walked with a distinct “clicking” sound. His head was bald on top there was hair on the lower part of his face; they could see no facial features. The women turned around at the end of the street and drove back but the figure had vanished. The odor was gone when they got back home, although the technicians had been unable to find any gas leaks.

Location: Solitude near Mt. Vernon, IN
Time: 8:50 p.m. 
Summary: The Sheriff contacted Fran Ridge right after the incident had occurred and was reported. Ridge’s Rapid Deployment Team of three men were on the road to the area within minutes. Near Solitude, Indiana, just a little over three miles north of us, a Mt. Vernon couple and their little boy were on their way home from a play in New Harmony, heading south on Hwy 69. They observed an object silhouetted against the moonlit haze in the southwest. Although a few miles away, the object had a clear cigar shape with three white lights. They continued driving down the highway and, as they got over the top of some hills, the object started to descend, getting larger and larger all the time. Right at the bottom of the hill they slowed down and the object appeared to be hovering. It was approximately a hundred yards from them then, and it was moving, but very slow. The adult male witness reported: “It acted like it was on water or floatin’-like.” It now had four lights on it, two on each end, the shadowy object was was long and slender, “kinda cigar-shaped.” At one time “it was just right above us, maybe 50-60′. Well, you couldn’t believe the size of it. It was real large. We went down the highway just a little further. We were going to park the car, so we pulled in there and were getting out of the car and we couldn’t find it. It had just vanished.” The object was “thin on the ends” and, “as it got to the middle, it was thicker. But like I say, we could just see the shadow”.  Duration: 7-18 minutes.
