Summary: Alan Pipo and a friend were driving through a field on the outskirts of town near the main gas station. When it began to rain they decided to stop the car. As they sat in the vehicle they suddenly noticed a figure about 1.90 meters in height, heavy set in appearance, wearing a diver’s suit and a helmet from which two antennas jutted out. The figure’s suit was gray-blue in color and it seemed to float just above the ground. They first saw the enigmatic figure at about 15 meters away when it suddenly seemed to disappear in plain sight. They described the being as having normal arms and legs, and somewhat resembling a modern day astronaut. Right after the figure vanished, the two men exited the car and searched the field but failed to find anything. The next day, Pipo, again met up with his friend and had inadvertently exchanged hunting jackets during the excitement. Pipo found unfamiliar car keys in his pocket and realized they belonged to his friend, as he gave his friend the keys both felt a strong electrical discharge. Since that day Pipo’s friend began to suffer from different ailments. He experienced strange numbing of his hands; he had to seek medical assistance in order to alleviate his condition.

Summary: Victor J Mertes, who had observed UFOs in Tujunga earlier on the year, claimed to be in communication with “them” and had supposedly found one of their landing sites which had a planting of mushrooms that were not native to the area. One night when he was in the area trying to pick up one of the mushrooms he heard the bushes moving. He turned and saw a weird little man floating in the air. The being had bulging eyes and floated in midair. The witness fired his shotgun at the being, but something told him not to fire the weapon. He left the area convinced that the beings were “bad people.” After the incident Victor got sicker and sicker. He got in trouble with the law, was turned away from the hospital, and when his mother died of cancer in the spring of 1976, Mr. Mertes took his life.

Summary: Alois Olenick driving to a nearby store saw amber colored luminous object rise from a grove 900 yards away. It then approached his pickup, losing altitude & becoming a blindingly bright cherry-red light. When it was directly over him, the witness lights went out & his engine died. He gout out & saw a globular craft with 2 conical protrusions; the bottom was of highly polished metal. When the UFO tipped at a 37-40 degree angle toward him, he could see that the top half was transparent & contained two occupants, visible by a reddish internal light; they were 5 ft tall or less, with bald heads, large pointed ears, long noses, & slit like eyes. Their skin appeared grayish. They seemed to be handling controls. There was no motor noise, but a cyclonic shriek of wind below the craft. Then it took off straight up, with a gust of wind that buffeted the pickup, and vanished almost instantly. There was an odor like burning electrical insulation that persisted in the truck for some time. The witness eyes were affected and he had to wear dark glasses as a result.

Time:  
Summary:  A friend and I were driving to his house after dark, North of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. He lived at that time in a Trailer Park, and we had to take a dark, unlit road to get there. All of a sudden a large glowing, white craft appeared above the road in front of us and swooped down and stopped over my car. I looked at my friend and said, “Did you see what I just saw??”, and he just shook his head. As the craft hovered, my car engine stopped, and we where missing about 25 minutes in time. We awoke in the car in time to see the craft swoop away. My friend was absolutely terrified!! Before he would go in the house that night, he made his wife go in the house and turn on all the lights and search the house!! I was just the opposite. I was absolutely exhilarated by the experience. I believe due to memories I can’t explain that I had been visited 25 years before as a small child. Approximately 25 years after this, I experienced another visitation while living in London,Ontario. I heard sounds that sounded like “buzzing”. I started to sit up and experienced a sharp pinch in my thigh. This time I woke up on the Alien Craft. I was laying on what seemed to be a chrome-like table, but it was very warm. There were all kinds of strange instruments around, and Aliens examining me and the instruments. When they noticed I was awake, I received another “pinch” and woke up back in my bed. I will be 75 years old when the next visitation should take place. I am anxiously awaiting that time!!!

Date: May 15 1975
Time: early morning
In a highway near the city Senior Lieutenant Vladimir Paltsev saw a strange object on a wooded clearing right off the side of the road. He exited his vehicle and approached the object in order to investigate. As he neared he could tell that the object was a transparent ellipsoid. As he got closer he was able to distinguish two human like figures inside a transparent cupola. One of the figures placed its palm on the internal dome of the craft and Paltsev realized that it appeared to be a human hand. At this point the officer struck what appear to be a dense wall of air, and lost consciousness. When he came to he again attempted to approach the object but was unable to overcome the invisible barrier. He then sat at the edge of the road and watched the object rise up and fly low over the road, at this time a motorcyclist driving by also saw the craft, which soon disappeared from sight.

Location. Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Date: May 18 1975
Time: 2200
Mr. And Mrs. Philip Arlotta had just stepped into their car and Mrs. Arlotta had started the car engine when she noticed a strange object just ahead of them in the sky. She mentioned it to her husband, who suggested they turned off the engine—perhaps they could hear something. The object was moving from east to west, and they describe it as being as large as a cantaloupe, oval and bright yellow near the bottom but darker near the top. In the darker section where six square windows, which showed a red light behind them. The craft suddenly made an abrupt right angle turn to the left, and at the same time it changed color from yellow to orange before it began gaining altitude. The object emitted no sound. The next evening at about dusk, a lone motorist was heading to his home in Jeannette Pennsylvania and when he entered the same area on Route 130, something caught his attention just to his left. He stopped the car and backed up. At a distance of a few hundred yards he noticed what he thought was a German shepherd running—although the movement was more like that of an ape than a dog. After a few seconds, the creature stood up on its hind legs and ran like a man into the woods. The creature was described as seven to eight ft tall and covered with thick, black hair.

Location: Rainhill, Merseyside, England
Time: late night
Summary: A family spotted three brilliant lights in a triangle drifting over their house. They went out in pursuit and saw what appeared to be a glowing object within a copse. However, after the man who had bravely ventured toward the wood in the dark went back for the others, they all walked into the edge of the trees and found nothing was now there. At first light an investigation began. The area was muddy around a small pond. The tracks of the witnesses leading to the edge of the area were visible but around the pond nobody had walked (except what seemed to be the prints of a dog). However, there were some very unusual marks. These appeared to be footprints, but extremely large ones, some fourteen inches across and with a stride length of four feet between them. Each print was oddly square and very heavily indented.

UFO-May-26-1975-Nancy-France-ovni

Date: May 26, 1975
Location: Nancy, France
Time: 07:45 p.m.
Summary: The witness’ father sent a letter to Albert Ducrocq, a prominent French science journalist, describing his son’s sighting and photograph. Excerpt from the letter: “On May 26, 1975, at approximately 07:45 p.m., my son Didier, who has just been seventeen years old, called me, claiming that he had just seen a UFO and that he had photographed it. His claim was received by much skepticism on my part, my wife’s and my daughter’s. Before closing his shutters, he saw this “thing” and, after a few seconds, he had the reflex to jump on his camera and to take a photograph. We did not speak again any more of the incident; having finished the roll and not having money to have it developped, my son put it aside… and forgot about it until last week. It was an amazement at the sight of the picture which I join to this letter.” In an interview, the witness gave further details. “[The duration of the sighting was] approximately 10 to 15 seconds. It went down vertically. Then, it disappeared towards the south. It resembled an opaque black disc without any reflection nor relief, and it evolved without noise, at least, I did not hear any noise.”

Time: 0800A
Summary: A couple driving en-route to the city of Lamar, with no one else apparently on the road, suddenly noticed at about 350 feet up in the air a hovering elongated donut shaped object, about the size of a half a football field and with a highly polished metallic look. They pulled off to the side of the road, but could not get close to the object because of a barbed wire fence. They watched for a while when suddenly three of four little white clouds popped in from the east, followed by a huge cloud that moved in front and covered the metallic object. When the cloud moved on the object had vanished. Both witnesses felt unusually calm and peaceful. Under hypnotic regression, the wife remembered trying to run towards the object but her husband told her to stay in the car. Suddenly she found herself inside the object, where two beings, one male, and the other female greeted her. These were described as very tall, thin, and “beautiful.” Their hair was long and blond and so were their eyelashes. The male entity wore a silver belt. She did not want to leave the craft but suddenly found herself back in the car.

Date: Summer 1975
Time: noon
Summary: Several young children on holiday vacation, including Alex, 12, Angela, 12, George, 9 and James, 8 were out playing out in a field and they recalled that everything “was very peaceful” around them. Suddenly something in the sky caught their eye. It was something they could only describe as “black” or”blackness.” As it suddenly arrived it was gone. They incident lasted only four seconds. Later the boys recalled seeing two separate objects. They were the same size, but one was higher than the other. They looked like biplanes. After the incident James seemed to have bad sunburn, and links that to the fact that he was standing directly beneath the object. He also remembers that although there was no noise there was an electric atmosphere, which was quite different from what they normally experienced. He also had the feeling that he did and says that Angela saw what appeared to be an “old man” standing next to them moments before the incident happened.

Date: Summer 1975
Time: afternoon
Summary: One night the witness and his wife heard a terrifying sound coming from the laundry room as if something were clawing its way up the drainpipe. Their dog went berserk and attempted to break out of the room. The next day the witness had gone out to inspect the pipes when he found small tracks on the virgin snow resembling small hoof prints. Starting in the middle of the yard they went straight to the drainpipe and stopped. Earlier that summer the witness was walking his dog on a field of tall grass across the street when out of the grass jumped a little creature that his dog had apparently flushed out. It resembled a miniature kangaroo. No sooner had it jumped a few feet it suddenly disappeared in plain sight. One year later there was a terrific explosion in the woods directly behind the house, blowing out several windows in an apartment across the street. The police never discovered its origin.

Location. Charlestown, West Virginia
Date: Summer 1975
Time: evening
The witness was walking between Charlestown and Harpers Ferry when he saw a large dimly lit object on the ground. It was a metallic object surrounded in a glowing light that did not cast light all over the place. Transfixed by the sight he approached the object on foot. As he got closer he saw what at first appeared to be a man, feeling safe he walked even closer. He then noticed that the “man” was not entirely human in appearance. He felt an overwhelming friendly presence and a voice in his head. He described the figure as man like light blue in color. It wasn’t naked; it had what appeared to be a thin layer of clothing on its body. On the forearms and hands there was an abundance of light hair. The facial features were not exactly human, but fairly close. The eyes looked grayish blue. The strangest part was the back of his head, which was kind of oval resembling some kind of apparatus that it apparently operated in conjunction with the thin layer suit the humanoid was wearing. The witness asked the humanoid why didn’t the object cast any light and was told that the object was like the end of a tunnel and somehow the light was “blocked”, he also mentioned that they traveled by “light.” The object itself resembled a stretched out triangle, flat on the bottom and pointed on the top. But the sides were longer and the top was short. It did not have any flashing lights and was totally silent, but the witness remembered feeling a “vibration” coming from it. After about an hour the object left in a manner resembling that of closing itself up in a hole. As soon as it left there was a feeling of emptiness.

Location. Near Sovetskoye, Kurgan region, Russia
Date: Summer 1975
Time: evening
A local soldier named Nikolay Bushuev went AWOL from his Soviet Army unit and walked towards the nearest village. He ran across a glade and entered a forest. Suddenly he noticed an even shaped globe approximately 2 meters in diameter located about 25-30meters away. The globe was moon-colored and emitted the same colored light all around it. It appeared to be light and transparent but at the same time very durable. Not knowing why, the witness fell to his knees and when he touched the ground he noticed two entities approaching the globe-shaped device. The humanoids were also emitting light and moved very fast, almost as if weightless. Suddenly, Nikolay heard strange sounds resembling that of an infant crying. Upon hearing those sounds Nikolay hid in the bushes remaining very calm. Not knowing how long he remained in that position Nikolay finally decided to move and leave the area. He jumped up and noticed the globe-shaped object, which began emitting a blinding light, slightly waving. Nikolay screamed and began running from the area. The globe suddenly jumped up to an altitude of several meters and hovered suspended in mid air for some time. Nikolay could clearly see the branches of the pine trees under waving as if under a strong pressure. He could also clearly see two seated silhouettes through the walls of the globe. At this point Nikolay became calm and watch the globe slowly ascend. It ascended higher than the treetops and vanished quickly from sight. Later he examined the glade and noticed a small 30cm indentation on the ground, apparently a landing trace. Later he rejoined his comrades in the village.

Summary:  The witnesses, Lori Briggs, & Jo Maine had gone to bed sometime before midnight. Lori awoke to hear voices from unseen beings that asked her to come with them. She resisted and heard a high-pitched sound, which grew louder. But she was still able to move. Jo slept as if drugged. After an hour both went to the kitchen there they heard the sound again and saw a light shining through the window. Lori’s memories under hypnosis were more detailed than that of Jo Maine’s. She recalled seeing several beings entering the bedroom. One being leaned over her bed. She asked several questions then the being asked her by telepathy to come with him. She was then lifted within a light and floated through her apartment walls. The beings dissolved into light and came with her. Outside the apartment she caught a glimpse of a dark domed craft. She then found herself inside a domed room 12 by 14 feet, seemingly too large for the craft & illuminated by a misty light from the walls. The being warned her not to touch anything onboard. When the beings conversed among themselves their speech was rapid and incomprehensible. Lights floated around her after the beings floated her over a pink stone-like table with a light beneath. The room was paneled in mirrors, like scales and in these she saw her blood vessels carrying blood of an apparently luminous quality. The beings used light to make imprints & records of her on thin slabs. The light apparently drained her of energy. The beings insisted that she go with them to the “mothership,” but she resisted and then found herself back in her apartment. The beings were described as humanoid with large, egg shaped heads, without hair and lipless, hole like mouths. Their eyes were deep set and lid-less and emitted light. They were 3 to 4-feet tall and very thin and their hands had only 3 fingers. They seemed luminous and floated above the ground. A taller being seemed to have been the leader.
