Date: Fall 1974
Location: Moorlands, Newfoundland, Canada
Time: 2200
Summary: The witness was driving through isolated area when suddenly the car and everything around him began to glow with a pulsating blue light. The radio also went completely dead. He stopped the car and opened the car door. He saw hanging in the sky, not making a sound, what appeared to be a cone-shaped object. Blue and red lights were flashing around the top and a spiraling blue light was descending from the bottom section. A very peaceful and relaxed feeling came over the witness as the object made a sharp turn and disappeared over a nearby hill. He sat looking towards the hill when a pulsating little light appeared in the sky behind it. He felt drawn towards it and left the car walking towards it. As he got closer, the blue lights became brighter and as he looked over the top of the hill he saw a cone shaped object standing on four legs, which seemed to be adjusted to the contours of the ground. The blue and red lights had stopped flashing, but the spiraling blue light was now coming from what appeared to be a window around the top of the object, which was enormous in size. Three more objects were off to one side; one of them began to move toward the witness, and when it got close it looked like a very tall man wrapped in tin foil and with something black over his head. At this point the witness felt frightened, but was unable to move, as his eyes seemed drawn toward a black crest on the being’s chest. When the figure got to within a few feet, he noticed that the crest was sort of a large metallic triangle with a black snake on it. His next memory was of being seated in the car, driving under the overpass. Just then the radio announcer gave the time as 0330A. There was a 3-hour discrepancy in time.

Summary:   The witness and her older sister were alone at home baking tollhouse cookies in the kitchen. They were leaning up against the counter and they could look out the glass patio door to their backyard. Suddenly some movement in the backyard caught their attention. They saw something flying over the neighbor’s fence to their left. It floated up over the fence, across the yard, and over the fence to their neighbors. They described it as a little man-like figure riding on what appeared to be a miniature motorcycle. He appeared to have been dressed in black, and looked human. They ran outside to peek over the fence and did not see the figure anymore.

Location:   Near Duxbury Massachusetts
Time:   early morning
Summary:   Late in August, while driving on her early morning paper route, the witness observed a red pulsating object at treetop level. When two beams of light emerged from its base to play across a nearby cranberry bog, her car engine “fluttered” and the car radio emitted much static. On either this occasion, or the following, the car interior became extremely hot and witness felt nauseated. Shortly after the above while driving in the same area as her previous sighting, the witness heard a voice “inside her head” telling her to run left at the next intersection, which she did. Then her car radio went out and the motor died. She saw four humanoid figures, each standing upon a “small surface vehicle” resembling a Roto Tiller, darting up and down the road a few inches above the surface. One figure approached her and requested her, telepathically, to open the car door; when she did not, all four doors flew open at once. The humanoids, after inspecting the interior of the craft, requested the witness to make certain arm movements, then to bend her head forward. Looking at the back of her head, one being said, “Yes, you are different,” and touched the spot with something that left 5 small puncture marks. He then “told” her that there were thousands of ships that have been visiting earth for many years and many people who have been examined by the occupants, voluntarily or otherwise. They come from a planet whose name resembled “Omius” or “Omnigus;” there was a “mother ship” at that time in Scituate Harbor. In reply to her own questions, the examiner said that she was not permitted to touch them or to board one of their ships, but he promised that she would see a ship subsequently; she was advised that she would suffer headaches for some weeks, which proved to be true; he also said that she would “not like to look upon their faces.” They departed and she arrived home an hour and a half later than usual. The figures were 4-5 feet tall, with small heads in transparent helmets, through which she was able to see only “small, beady, very shiny eyes.” The spokesman had two stripes on the upper part of his arm; the other 3 had stripes that were longer on their sides, just above their waists. The leader had a buckle on his belt upon which was a wavy line. She was extremely upset by this encounter, and told only her husband, who gave details to the investigator. On the night following this encounter, the witness again experienced E-M effects in her car as a large, disc shaped object with multi-colored lights descended; 3 landing legs extended from the bottom, which passed barely inches from the windshield of the car; an insignia was observed “resembling mathematical symbols.” After hovering briefly, the object shot straight up and vanished. The witness refused to cooperate in any investigation.

A woman living in Guatemala City heard her doorbell ring, and opened the door to see two ‘men” in silvery helmets and uniforms. They were of medium-dark complexion, 5’10”, or 5’11” tall. She then remembered nothing until 1100A, when she found herself doing housework. Then her sister came to tell her that a UFO had been seen in San Lucas, 20 minutes away. After this experience she had headaches nearly everyday for some months.

Location. Near Hobbs, New Mexico
Date: September 1974
Time: afternoon
A huge disc-shaped object suddenly descended over a tract of farmland and stopped to hover about five hundred feet over a barn. A farmer was in his pickup driving toward his home nearby when he glimpsed the object and stuck his head out the window for a better look. Also watching the strange object in amazement were his wife, his daughter and a neighbor. Suddenly, before their eyes, the pickup truck with the farmer in it was lifted vertically from the ground and vanished into the underbelly of the disc. Hysterically, the farmer’s wife called the police. (According to the source the farmer was never found and the case was kept confidential by the local authorities).

Location:   Renmark South Australia
Time:   2215
Summary:   Returning home in a Hillman Hunter sedan, by herself, a lady became aware of an illumination behind the car. It was a white light which approached at great speed, and as it seemed to be wanting to overtake her she moved over to the left. She saw the light to her right, then the car vibrated as if being pushed up and down. She just held on tightly to the steering wheel, and recalls the engine must have stopped at this point for although she pressed the accelerator no power was forthcoming. The light simply vanished. She was by this time, terrified, and cannot recall any other part of her trip home.

Date: September 1974
Time: late night
The witness was sleeping in his bedroom when he suddenly found himself floating with his left hand extended. He could see the outline of several short gray figures standing in front of him. The witness felt in a jovial mood but he suddenly became angry and attempted to grab one of the short beings; but he became paralyzed and could not move. A being with large black slanted eyes and a blue gray complexion walked up to him and stared at him. He then found himself lying on a table and surrounded by several female type beings that appeared to be wearing surgical caps. The beings seemed to be doing several things to him. One recollection was of sitting on a hard steel stool and complaining about it. Two beings then walked into the room and told him that he was to be returned home. He was led to a circular hallway and some type of hatch opened up. He was then told to jump, that he would be safe. The witness jumped and he felt cushioned and then something picked him up, straightened him, and dropped him down through his roof. He was laid back in bed and remembers seeing a vivid white light coming through the roof, he could hear a whirring sound and could see a little being going up the light kicking his legs rapidly. The being eventually went up into a gray hovering object. This being wore a tight fitting metallic outfit with a collar and black boots. He was heavy set with a broad forehead and rounded head. The eyes were round with colored irises, darker on the outer edge. He had prominent nostrils on a pug nose and long arms down to his knees.

Date:  September 6 1974
Location:   Near Inguri River Caucasus Russia
Time:   1800
Summary:   A group of scientific workers were in a mountainous area near the river when they noticed a landed object among some bushes. The object was described as a sphere on top of a disc and sitting on three legs. One witness attempted to approach the object but encountered some type of force field that rendered him unconscious for several hours. Others threw stones and sticks at the object without any apparent effect. The next morning the witnesses encountered five more similar objects on the ground. Suddenly a 2-meter tall humanoid appeared out of nowhere and entered one of the objects, which took off at high speed; the other objects also took off. Soil samples taken from the site indicated an increase in radiation.

Summary:   And continuing until 1:30 a.m. next morning, residents  saw an odd red-orange light, then a luminous sphere that rose from behind a hill. A motorist blinked his headlights a couple of times at the object, and it immediately darted toward him and stopped overhead emitting a humming sound, its light illuminating the terrain. After a while the object disappeared. This man and others in the area later saw a round, luminous orange-red object moving around  near the ground, its light illuminating a dock, a distillery, grapevines and other terrain features. One witness noted that no light rays or beams were visible between the luminous object and the illuminated ground.

Location. Sioux City Iowa
Date: September 8 1974
Time: 0330A
A 16-year old youth was awakened in his basement room by a loud noise like a sonic boom. A few minutes later he saw a bright purple light flashing outside his basement window, lighting up the interior of his room. Neighborhood dogs were carrying on, although the usually chirruping crickets in the basement were now silent. About 3 minutes after the purple light was seen, a bright white light the size and shape of a baseball passed in front of the window, and the young heard a “scratching” sound on the screen door to the yard, and the purple and white lights again shone in the window. Shortly after, hearing a “tapping” nose outside, the witness got up and looked out the window and saw, standing between two garbage cans, a 3-foot tall figure carrying a purple light like a flashlight. He yelled and dashed upstairs, just as “an enormous gust of wind” hit the house. The strange sounds had awakened two girls in the house, and the following morning a dark scorched mark 3 feet in diameter was found on the concrete patio.

The 8-year old witness woke up in the middle of the night to grab a snack. The east-facing window of the house had the curtains open. As he looked out the window he saw an orange light, which grew in size or came closer to the witness. After about 5 seconds it stopped and the light shut off, revealing a saucer shaped craft hovering about 150 feet away at house level. It was a “classic” inverted saucer shape with a dome on top with a bluish glow around it. As it hovered, a periscope like apparatus came out from underneath and it pointed at the witness. The witness was stunned to see a yellowish eye in the viewfinder staring at the witness. As soon as the witness saw it, it disappeared. The witness then fled into his room and hid under the bed, he did not see the object depart.

Location. Fontainebleau Seine et Marne France
Date: mid September 1974
Time: night
A group of campers in the forest at Fontainebleau noticed a very strong light nearby. Investigating, they were suddenly confronted by a luminous being, staring at them. They turned to flee but a group of creatures of varying heights, between 50 cm and two meters, blocked their way. The beings were all luminous and they did not touch the ground. After a moment of staring at the campers, they suddenly vanished.

Date:  September 16 1974
Location:  St Helens, Legana/ The Marches, Tasmania
Time:   9:45 – 10:15 PM. 
Summary:   This very unusual event occurred to Mrs Andrea Richards, housewife, thirty four, and her daughters Janine (eight) and Kathleen (five) when they were travelling home to The Marches near St Helens.  Weatherwise it was a light drizzling rain, on a dark night. They were all very tired and She had the radio on and was having good reception, when it developed a great deal of static. Ahead she saw the sky light up. Crossing a bridge, the car then lost power and rolled to a stop. The whole electric system was out, even the dashboard lights. An attempt to restart the car failed. Then, “a deafening vibrating noise enveloped the car.” As she and the children covered their ears, “painful electrical shocks began penetrating their bodies.” This went on for about a minute. The car filled with a “choking smell”, and they evacuated. They ran down the road to a house some distance away, where the resident noted their alarmed condition, took them in, and after they had settled a bit took them back to their vehicle. The light was gone, and all that was unusual with the car was that its “bonnet” was hot. The car started normally, and they went home. Coincidentally, the lady’s husband was out waiting for the rest of the family, and saw lights in the sky and heard a distant roar. He and the local garage checked the car and nothing was amiss. Although the children suffered no ill effects, the mother had swollen arms and fingers the next day, and a numbness in the right side of her face [with an undescribed “red mark” there as well]. Two nights later, the husband noticed a distant light which he felt was following his car. Upon arriving home, the family looked for the light. Above some trees, about 150 meters away, they saw an “inverted banana-shaped” yellow light hovering. They turned off their house lights and the object moved away.

Younic Le Bihan, 20, awakened his parents to observe a UFO hovering outside their house; the family used binoculars to examine it. The object resembled a boat; lights like portholes emitted a very bright light that changed from orange to green, and on each side of the base was a red light. The object, 30 feet wide and 22 feet high, hovered about 2 feet above the ground. Then the lights were extinguished, and the family saw a star-like light that quickly disappeared. Younic then observed 3 heavy set humanoid figures about 5 1/2 foot tall “waddling” toward them; the beings were dressed in metallic suits, & seemed to float above the ground, their faces were not visible. The family fled from the house in fear.

Date:  September 22 1974
Location:   Tayenne, Tasmania
Time:   5:20 PM. 
Summary:   A lady had parked her car along the side of the road waiting to pick up a relative. The radio said it was 5:20pm. The sky then lit up, the light brightly illuminating the interior of the car. The radio screamed a high-pitched whistle. She then noticed some sort of object moving down the slope of the roadside hill. Not liking the look of that, she tried to get the car moving and away. Unfortunately, she was overly excited and “bogged” the car in the roadside mud. Now stuck, she could do nothing but sit inside and watch what the object would do. The thing hovered in front of the witness about 30 meters away. It was about 4 feet off the middle of the road.  It had a large, but somewhat hard to see, brilliant orange-yellow dome. this was mounted on a silver-gray base which was more or less a disk. The “disk” base was composed of about 6 “layers”, which ,in steps, got  slightly smaller with each lower layer. The top layer may have had “spots” or portholes. The entire stepped layer was about 2 meters thick. Beneath these layers was a much smaller revolving layer, and beneath that a “box” or “tube” which protruded for a short distance. [The largest diameter is stated to be about 4 meters but the drawing makes this seem a bit on the small side as an estimate]. The mere presence of this contraption was scaring the heck out of the witness. Then, after what was only a few seconds, the device moved over into the valley, and shot at terrific speed straight up and out of sight. The lady exited the stuck vehicle instantly and ran home. Her husband and son returned to the car but, of course, the UFO was no longer present. The car operated normally [once out of the ditch], but the radio never recovered [always had distortion]. The lady was extremely shaken, and was sick several days afterwards. Perhaps the weirdest thing in the case is the observation that after the car was towed back home, they noticed that although the rest of it was dirty, the “bonnet was exceptionally clean”. It was as clean “as though given a cut and polish.”  THAT apparently boggled the husband as much as anything about the case.

9:00 p.m. Police officers reported a brilliant elliptical object hovering above the Wiscasset Nuclear Power Station. After several minutes it rose straight up, leveled off and flew away in an arc across the sky. At one point it emitted two small satellite objects which operated independently, then rejoined the larger craft. (National Enquirer report July 8, 1975)

Location:   Pacific Ocean, off Guam
Time:   2:00 a.m. (??).
Summary:    The USS Reclaimer ARS-42 while off Guam, had an underwater event that apparently was tracked by radar on Guam at some point. The starboard lookout report a contact. What they then saw was a single red flashing light which changed course a little and then parallelled them. Guam control acknowledged that they too were tracking something and were sending a wild weasel F-14 to investigate. This thing, now a USO, accelerated and the F-14 went to full afterburner right off the deck. The USO pulled easily ahead of the jet, crossed the horizon in seconds while underwater with no visible wake.
