Summary:  14-year old Sergio Bayardi Porta reportedly committed suicide on orders from a small “cloud” that apparently engaged him in conversation. His heartrending suicide note informed his mother that aliens from the planet Sonolcuclo, “three light centuries away from our galaxy,” had requested his help on their world. Unfortunately, the only way to reach this improbable destination was by committing suicide.

Summary:  In a wooded area two mushroom pickers reported seeing a shiny metallic cigar shaped craft descend and hover close to the ground. A purple elevator type object descended from the bottom of the object and from it a huge hairy man like creature emerged. It was carrying something resembling a wooded plank. The entity crossed a meadow and entered the woods but soon returned to the object. The object then shot away emitting a loud roaring sound.

Summary:  Steven Unzelman was clearing some land behind his property in an area surrounded by tall evergreen trees and brush when he noticed a man like figure standing close by. The man seemed startled and suddenly the witness began hearing a loud buzzing sound and everything around him began to vibrate. The figure appeared to be yelling at him. A second man wearing a blue coverall now descended from the sky inside what appeared to be a half-egg shaped contraption with rotating blades on top. It was creating a strong turbulence all around the area. Both men descended to the ground using this peculiar machine. The two half egg shaped objects then suddenly shot up into the sky and disappeared. Both men were described as bald headed with flat faces. Both had dark brown skin and wore metallic blue uniforms and what appeared to be oxygen tanks on their backs. Both were about 5-feet tall and their heads were slightly larger than normal. Suddenly the witness heard a loud motor sound and saw a disc shaped object descend overhead making the trees whip back and forth. After emitting more sounds the object shot straight up making a siren-like sound. The object was silvery and appeared to have been spinning. The two humanoids then began walking away looking over their shoulders at the witness. He then heard a noise and noticed a huge hairy Bigfoot type creature hiding behind a nearby stump. The two humanoids then seemed to motion at the Bigfoot to come with them. It seemed to obey and left with them. The witness experienced a memory loss after the incident.

Location. Pendeli Mountain, Greece
Date: April 1977
Time: evening
Mr. L X, his wife and Miss V M went for an excursion in the mountain. In a certain remote place on the rocky slopes they saw a strange car. The car appeared normal but the place where it was stationed was; an inaccessible spot on the rough rocks which it could not have reached without suffering serious damage. But the car was intact. It stayed there for many days; the three people went there repeatedly to see if the car’s owner would finally come and tow it. In one of these visits they climbed to the spot the car in order to examine it. There was nothing unusual except the car’s presence and some peculiar tracks in the snow. The tracks were oval, about half a meter long and they were even in virtually vertical rock surfaces, where no animal or man could walk. As they stood around the young woman strayed away from the couple and had reached a spot behind some bushes. The she started screaming wildly. The others ran to her. When she calmed down she explained that she had seen a “white creature, a horrendous white creature” with an oval shape, about 60cm tall with no other features except “two huge luminous eyes”. The others did not see anything but Mr. L X, noticed that the bushes were moving like some animal was behind them, somewhat concerned they went back to Athens. A few days later, Mr. L X had a weird experience. He was again in Pendeli with his wife when he started screaming and trembling. For a while he was not able to speak. Finally he explained to her that he was ready to start the car when he saw beside him, outside the car, a huge black sphere rotating with tremendous speed. He could not see any details, only that it was something like a “hairy sphere” or ” a sphere made of thick black smoke”. The whole incident lasted fractions of seconds. At the same time, he felt like “something was trying to enter his mind” and saw the sphere coming through the closed glass of the car window.

A young couple was sitting in their vehicle at a remote field when suddenly they heard crackling sounds. Looking out the rear window the girl saw a bright orange light a few hundred yards away. The light was dome shaped and a large broad figure with a white haze surrounding its outline could be seen in front of the light, it appeared to grow larger as the light approached and it seemed to have frizzy hair and furry boots. This entity appeared to be ten to eleven-foot tall. At this point one of the witnesses turned the radio on and it emitted a loud crackle. The witnesses then drove away at high speed in their vehicle but the light and the strange figure somehow managed to keep up with them. Strangest of all the figure appeared to be walking in front of the light, at all times.

Mrs Susanne Fortier, with her collie dog, was walking on the lawn behind her house. Hearing a “wind or whistle,” she observed a small object land in the vicinity of the children’s playhouse. It was about five feet in diameter, with 8 “pods or legs,” windows or doors all around it, and an antenna on top. The interior was a bright red, or illuminated by a red light, and contained six occupants 3-foot tall who had long slit-like eyes, ape like noses, and no hair. The skin of their faces seemed very wrinkled. They wore gloves. Mrs Fortier could hear “a garble of voices” talking, like a bunch of CB voices, and felt extreme heat from the craft. She watched it for about 15 minutes, after which it rose straight up and flew off to the south. When she got back in the house she found her face and legs red from the heat. Her dog, which reacted noticeably to the object, would still not let her go near the area a month later. No traces were found at the site, which was muddy.

The witness, a woman in her 30’s living on Rue Cleroux, was in her kitchen when she saw a strong light coming in her back window. On raising the blind, she saw a disc shaped object of a dazzling, pulsating white luminosity, about 35 ft in diameter, hovering several yards above a tree 35 ft tall. It bore a pulsating red luminous domed cupola without windows. Around its periphery revolved yellow, green, blue, and red blinking lights. She heard a sound like a huge swarm of bees. After watching the UFO for perhaps 15 seconds, she ran to her bathroom and hid, 2 minutes later, the noise and the light ceased. She went out to the street in front of her house, where she found a 13-year old boy, Jos Madison, pointing a carbine at the sky; the now silent disc was hovering 100 ft up, in a tilted position. Jos did not fire, but called to his friend Alair Narby, also 13. Jos’s 2 sisters joined them and also saw the UFO, which was now moving from place to place above the houses by jumps too rapid to observe. It then stopped for more than 5 minutes, during which Mrs Madison came out and also observed it. It was now about sunset. The object moved off toward the river Nadon, where it again dashed back and forth. The 2 boys followed it to the Nadon field by the river, in which there was a temporary pond formed by melted snow. They saw the UFO approach the river, now flying very low; it skimmed over the pond 100 yards away, producing a loud sizzle of boiling water, then landed behind a slight rise of ground. It was at this time emitting a strident very sharp sound. After 4 or 5 minutes there appeared, in front of the object, what the boys took for the helmeted head, shiny red and metallic shoulders of a man or man like being, seen from the rear; because of the terrain no more was visible. Above the head of this figure was a red light, apparently floating in midair. He looked to right and left, then bent down and was seen no more; immediately afterward, the disc rose, lighted up, and at an altitude of about 65 ft resumed its erratic movements. Darkness was falling, and the boys returned home, finally running because the UFO seemed to be following them. They were temporarily partially deafened, evidently by the UFO’s noise. At least 3 families in the block experienced total interference with TV reception during this time. At the scene different tracks and what appeared to be footprints were found.

Cyril John, 64, a former local political leader, was up early for an early start into London when he noticed a light shining in his bedroom window. Looking out he observed two objects, an egg-shaped object of silver gray color with a bright orange-red light on top of it and about four feet across, was rocking gently in the air about 60 yards away; the second was a humanoid figure, about 7 to 8-foot tall, floated in the air with arms out and legs bent back, like a “free fall parachutist,” about 35 feet away, between the object and the observer. No features could be seen on the figure’s face, and it was dressed in a uniformly silver gray “boiler suit.” It remained motionless in the air for more than 25 minutes, when both it and the object began slowly moving off, gradually disappearing from view in the distance.

Two young girls walking under a highway overpass by a canal were following a path up a small hill when they suddenly saw an object hovering above some brush nearby. The craft was dark gray, apparently metallic; shaped like a drum and had four to six long spider like legs hanging from its bottom. The object then rose slowly and disappeared towards the southeast following a curved path. Suddenly from out of the bushes under where the object had been hovering a thin human like figure emerged, it had long brown hair and was wearing a blue top and dark pants, it also wore strange looking boots. Behind the thin figure, five other similar but shorter figures appeared. The group then walked briskly in a single file, towards the desert and disappeared from sight in the distance.

A couple returning to their trailer home had to make a stop to change their baby’s diaper. As the husband looked for a diaper he glanced out the window and saw a twelve-foot hairy creature with fierce glowing red eyes. The creature uttered guttural sounds and apparently made an aggressive move towards the car. The creature chased the vehicle as the terrified couple fled the area; it hit and dented the car angrily flinging its arms up and down. The next night as the couple looked out their mobile home they saw a similar creature perched near a tree. The creature took several steps towards the house and was shot at by the husband several times, at that point it seemed to jump up and disappear in plain sight.

The radio of hotel owner Rosa Gremville suddenly went dead; moments later she heard a loud humming noise outside; looking out, she was dazzled by a “huge moon lighting up the area, moving about like a seesaw.” It descended and landed in a field 100 yards behind the hotel. “It was round, with flames coming from the top of a dome. There was a light on it, like a pulsating star.” Two creatures 8 or 9-foot tall emerged from the dome through the flames; they had on “cream colored” or “silvery” jump suits (or boiler suits). Observing through binoculars, she could see neither features-(just a blank face)-nor any hair; they looked as though they had hands, but she saw no fingers. “I though their feet were webbed.” The figures walked around near the object for about 15 minutes. Mrs Gremville “wanted to scream,” but she had lost her voice. She went in search of another witness but when they returned, object and figures had disappeared. Burn marks were found at the site the next day.

Bill Bartlett, 17, was driving on Farm Street with two friends when he saw a creature on top of a roadside stone wall, about 20 feet away. It was between 3.5 and 4-feet tall when upright, and had a small, slender body and very large melon shaped head showing no features except two large round, orange glowing eyes, Its skin was “like the color of a shark,” and it had large hands and feet with digits that appeared to wrap around whatever supported them. It slowly turned its head to stare at the witness, who drove quickly away; his companions had not seen it. An artist, he made a drawing later for investigators, now widely reproduced in most sources.

John Baxter, 15, was walking home his girl friend’s house along a road off Farm Street, 1.2 miles from the site of the previous encounter, when he saw a very small figure approaching him. He called out but got no response. When he was 25 ft away, the figure stopped, and then ran quickly across a gully next to the road into an adjacent field. Baxter followed several feet then stopped, frightened, and observed the figure some 30 feet away as it stood on a rock and grasped a tree trunk, staring at the boy. It somewhat resembled a monkey with a very large “figure 8 head.” Its eyes were visible as two lighter circles in the center of the head. Perturbed by the strangeness of its appearance, Baxter backed away slowly, then turns and ran to Farm Street, where a car picked him up. He drew a sketch that closely matched another witness’s.

It looked like a hairless, beige colored monkey or small ape, with a very large, oblong shaped head. Two large round eyes in the center of the head glowed green in the car’s lights. No nose, ears, or tail were seen. They drove past, within 8 feet of the little creature, which Abby observed closely for about 5 seconds; her companion, driving, only glimpsed it briefly. Neither knew of the other sightings at the time.

Summary:  Mrs Pauline Coombs, 31, and her husband Billy, 36, were watching the television at their Ripperston farm when they saw at a window a silver suited figure. Pauline having seen it first, said nothing to her husband until he himself saw it. “It must have been over 7-foot tall, because they could not see its face.” It was three feet wide, surrounded by a luminous glow; its box shaped helmet framed a dark square area in which no face was visible. They called the investigator and the police immediately, but the figure was gone before they arrived. Mrs Coombs and her family has been involved in several other incidents prior and after this encounter.
