Date:  January 1977
Location:  Clearwater Colorado
Time:  night
Summary:  The main witness and his wife had bought a ranch in an isolated area in 1975 and for more than a year they had been experiencing strange sounds, UFO manifestations and Bigfoot sightings on the property. There were some cattle mutilations as well. One night him and the eldest son went up to the top of a hill to examine a burned spot from the previous year. As they sat in the car, a beam of yellow light shone on them from nearby woods. Walking towards the trees, they discovered a buzzing black box, clearly seen in the light of the full moon. As they approached, it changed tone, now sounding like a swarm of angry bees. The two retreated to the safety of the car. The witness told the young man to stay by the car and went back to the spot where the black box had been; it was now gone. He saw a light in the trees and, walking toward the light, came upon two individuals standing near the light source. As he approached, they spoke to him, saying “How nice of you to come.” Some distance away, down a slope, was a disk, illuminated, about 50 or 60 feet away. The two beings apologized for the trouble they had caused, promising a more equitable arrangement. They told him several things he was not to repeat, but which had no special meaning for him at the time. They regretted damage done to several of the cars, but they did not acknowledge responsibility for any of the local cattle mutilations. They told him he was wise to have backed off from the black box, which was nearby. They pointed in a particular direction and the tone on the box changed; as it did, a Bigfoot type creature got up off the ground and walked toward the box. The tone changed and the creature dropped. The meeting lasted five minutes. In appearance the beings were similar, human looking about 5’6″ in height, and wearing a tight fitting outfit like a flight uniform. The suits changed colors from brown to silver. Their complexions were fair and they had blond hair, not long. The most notable features were the eyes, which were very large but otherwise normal looking. They were different in subtle ways but could pass as humans in ordinary situations. Before the witness walked away from the scene he was told by the beings that he would see them again.

Summary:  The witness was alone in her home in the kitchen area when she felt a presence next to her. She turned and saw a very tall blond haired man wearing a light tight fitting outfit with boots and with a bright red light on the waist area. He had blue green eyes and mentally told the witness “not to be afraid that he was here to help.” Suddenly she blacked out and awakened in a large silvery metallic oval room where she saw other similar beings and computer like terminals and a huge screen. She was then taken into a room, where she changed her clothing and made to lay down on a cot. There two tall blond men and a shorter being described as wearing a white outfit, no hair, with a large head and large black slanted eyes with long thin arms that ended in three long fingers examined her using a brilliant blue light. The witness later came to in her home at 1130A. The witness was told by the beings to build a small pyramid next to her new home.

Summary:  The 10-year old witness along with her parents and cousin were hiking in a wooded area. The adults were about 30 ft ahead of the two young witnesses when they noticed to their left about 10 ft ahead what appeared to be a small robot-like figure standing next to a tree. The “robot” was waving at them with an arm, at a 90-degree angle. As they got closer they could hear a clicking sound every time it waved. It had large round red eyes and it never moved, it just kept waving at the witnesses. The adults seem to simply or ignore it or somehow did not see it at all. As the witnesses approached closer to the figure, the witness yelled at her cousin to go touch it. Her cousin began to cry and ran away. The witness continued to approach but as the reached the tree the strange figure had disappeared.

Time:  6:00 AM
Summary:  A 9 year old boy was getting ready to eat his breakfast when he noticed a “little man” standing outside in his yard. He went outside and saw two light green colored creatures about 3 foot tall, who rotated on a base instead of having legs and feet. In a drawing, these creatures had only one eye, pug noses, and vestigial arms. Two metal craft were observed, one resting in the backyard and the other on the roof of the house, where there were two more identical creatures visible. While hiding, he saw the first two beings return to their craft, which were brightly lit inside and contained “two chairs with very tall bases.” Ramps led up to “cross shaped” doors. After the humanoids had re-entered, the craft in the yard rose and disappeared in a cloud of steamy exhaust. Impressions in the gravel were found where the boy said the creatures had stood. In the long grass of the backyard was a circle of whirled grass about 10 feet in diameter. Local investigators found these traces still present during their on-site inspection on the same day the incident.

A man had come face to face with a huge bigfoot-type creature. Behind the creature, he said, hovered briefly a tiny pinpoint of light from which a “high pitched whistle” emitted. Besides Bigfoot sightings the same area had been host to much UFO activity as well. In another case a humming metallic saucer-like object reportedly directed a beam of light down upon a startled young man.

The two main witnesses were telepathically instructed to go to a certain desolate area and wait. Suddenly somebody knocked on the window of their vehicle and they saw a tall man in dark clothing with red hair and beard. He told them that his name was “Zir” and then told them to wait there. He returned later with a being that called himself “Karran” who wore luminous clothing. He spoke in an unknown language that “Zir” translated. Zir had milky white skin and violet colored eyes; he told the witnesses he had two hearts. Karran then left in a huge luminous object that had apparently landed on the roadway nearby. The witnesses were supposedly able to snap a photo.

The young witness remembers one night being floated against his will down the stairs of his house. Terrified he saw a short figure (shorter than him) that floated beside him at all times. He tried to grab the wall and banister but could not get a firm hold. His next memory was of being in the driveway being floated down the road, surrounded by several gray colored figures. He tried to run but his legs just cycled aimlessly in mid-air. He remembers another time, also floating in his driveway accompanied by his younger sister and by the small gray figures. He had vague memories of being in a dark room with a metallic floor with some “people” that were involved in a project, which calmed him down and made him feel good. No other memories.

A 24-year old woman and her young sister were doing the wash next to their rural home when they saw on top of a nearby hill a strange bulky figure, dark and motionless, it resembled an 8-foot tall box with a round head on top and legs that appeared to thin out towards the bottom. A strange sound resembling several dogs barking into a microphone seemed to emanate from the figure. The two witnesses became frightened and locked themselves in their house; they then heard a sound as if someone was dragging itself outside on a sand path that encircled the house. The sound appeared to stop at the edge of a nearby pine grove. The adult witness suffered a nervous breakdown. A small radioactive spot was found at the foot of the hill, plus other ground traces were evident.

Summary:  A man was training his German shepherd dog inside a pine grove when the animal suddenly became agitated and sat next to him. He then saw hovering 10 meters from the ground a dark metallic domed object that was emitting a beeping sound. Near the object the witness saw a very tall heavy set figure, human like. The object suddenly emitted a silvery lightning like flash and disappeared, so did the bulky figure. The witness suffered from severe headaches soon after the incident and his dog died for no apparent reason in August of the same year.

Summary: Mrs. Florida Malboeuf, about 50, was sitting at her window on the Rue Casgrain when she saw an oyster shaped, flat bottomed metallic object, with a row of white lights around its base, come in from the north and land on the rooftop of a 3 story apartment building across the street, about 60 feet from her. Immediately two figures appeared on the roof, they were very tall and thin (over 6ft.), with long arms, wearing white one piece garments with their heads covered with tight “bath helmets.” They stood looking at the street, then at the sky, then they returned apparently to the object. The moment after they disappeared, the object rose from the roof about 20 feet and went off to the east. Her son Andre went to the roof in question and found on top of the ice and snow there a large elliptical shaped crust of ice, 4/5″ thick, and about 18 feet in diameter, evidently formed by the local melting of the snow. In relief on this plaque and going toward the façade of the building were four small, narrow footprints, only 6.5″ long.

Three young witnesses, Fernanda Pinheiro, 10, Paulo Alexandre Teixeira 10, & Vitor Manuel Ribeiro, 9, were resting on a stonewall after playing in a field when they suddenly noticed a figure descending from the sky. Terrified they watched the figure as it flew over their heads. They described it as large, man like with a featureless hairless egg shaped head, orange in color, with outstretched arms that ended in thin orange hands. It wore a shiny transparent white flowing smock. The figure itself appeared semi-transparent as it rose up into the sky and disappeared from sight.

Two weeks after two men had seen a low hovering object over some buildings one of the men was this time alone in the same area when he spotted a similar shimmering object that emitted a crackling sound and disappeared behind buildings. Moments later the witness caught sight of a short man like figure that quickly crossed his path ahead of him disappearing around a corner. The figure was about three-foot tall and appeared to be yellow in color. It had very thin arms and legs and a peanut shaped head. It seemed to glide just above the ground as it crossed the street.

Jose Cantu, 9, was preparing his breakfast when he saw a “little man” outside in his yard. He went outside and saw two greenish creatures about three-foot tall, unipedal, who rotated on a base instead of having legs and feet. According to his published drawing, they had only one eye, pug noses, and vestigial arms. Two steely craft were observed, one resting in the backyard and the other on the roof of the house, and in these were two more identical creatures. Hiding behind a washing machine, he saw the first two beings return to the UFOs, which were brilliantly lighted inside and contained “two chairs with very tall bases.” Ramps led up to “cross shaped” doors. After the humanoids had re-entered, the craft in the yard rose and disappeared in a cloud of steam or smoke. Marks in the gravel were found where Jose said the creatures had stood, and in the long grass of the backyard was a circle of whirled grass about 10 feet in diameter. Investigators found these traces still present during their on site inspection.

Summary:  Boat brightly illuminated by round glowing object, abnormal silence, heat, boat held back as if by invisible force, light beam, time loss. Two hunters spotted an extremely bright light which seemed to appear from nowhere. The light moved over them and just hovered. There was no sound coming from the light source, but the men could feel heat emitting from it. The light moved slowly toward a fire station located close by and appeared to hover for about 30 minutes. Finally it moved over to the Shell Oil Plant for awhile and then disappeared as quickly as it had come.

Summary:  Residents of Santa Rosa-some awakened by a penetrating sound and bright lights-observed a UFO that circled above the village and finally came to rest on the bank of the river Turbio. It emitted multi-colored lights and caused panic. As it landed, human like figures could be seen moving “slowly and in robot like fashion” within the object. As a crowd of people with flashlights began to close in on the landing site, the UFO took off again; it had been on the ground for five minutes.

Date:  January 27 1977
Location:  Near Cookeville (Putnam) Tennessee
Time:  1400
Summary:  Donald Fender, 49, a self-employed bee farmer of Greeneville, was driving on Route 40 to Madison (north of Nashville). He was in his pickup truck and his dog with him. In the vicinity of Cookeville, his dog began to act strangely, and Fender felt “like someone wanted to talk to me.” Obeying an impulse, he turned off on a side road. He noticed a long balloon like thing that stretched along one side of the road for a distance of a mile or a mile and a half. White and silky in color and texture, he then saw another one on the other side of the road. Curious, he pulled off and stopped his car. His dog was by then quite agitated. Then suddenly, without any transition, he found himself inside a solid white colored cigar shaped room, or enclosure, approximately 50 feet long. He sensed rather than observed, five humanoid entities gathered around him. They were small in size and they stared at him. One was to his immediate left. Then they began to question him about a number of things, most of which Fender was unable to remember. They also gave him certain information; they told him they “were emissaries of peace” and that they could enter Earth’s atmosphere only at this point—or “window”-along the road; and that this spot would “become the future home of space travel.” They also told him of dire events including major catastrophes that would come about in the near future. He “saw” or was “shown” various scenes, as though he were floating far above them, of areas of major destruction and devastation. These included scenes of green farmlands he identified as being English; these were devoid of any kind of life. After approximately 15 minutes, he suddenly found himself back in his truck, with no idea of how he got there. Along the roadside there was nothing unusual to be seen. His dog was behaving normally once more. He felt very strange and disturbed by the experience. Arriving at Madison about an hour later than he expected, he was unable to account for the lost time. There was a good deal about the experience that he was unable to remember. He was so upset about the experience that within the week he drove to Washington DC, to make the incident known officially. He went to the Department of Defense where, he said he spoke to Defense Secretary Brown himself. His story was met with little enthusiasm. There is more to the story that he is unwilling to divulge over the telephone to the investigators.
