Summary: Two young boys, Barry Scott, and Russell Lee were camping in the woods, when they heard something tramping down the hill. When they looked out of their tent, they saw something that floated more than it walked. Each boy apparently saw something different. Barry saw a bell shaped white being, and Russell saw something he described as “like the Virgin Mary.” Whatever it was, the entity vanished among the trees, leaving the two boys in a state of bewildered excitement.

Summary: Mendelejew W Charitonow reported seeing in a garden close to some woods a small transparent object resting on the ground. The object appeared to be made out of two sections, in one he could see a seat in what appeared to be a command console. The witness approached and saw 3 “perfect humans” inside, except for the faces, which were somehow “different.” He invited the humanoids to come out. But apparently he was taken inside where he was sat at a console and saw a square keyboard that apparently controlled the ship. He was then given a ride in the object and eventually released on the same field.

Summary: The witness was driving in a remote area when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle, he drove on until he came up to the top of a hill, and there he was commanded to stop. He left the car and found himself walking on a valley that was filled with light. He was then ordered to climb a nearby mountain; it took him five hours to reach the top. He did not recall much after that and had one hour of missing time. Later under hypnosis he recalled that as he was walking on the valley a bright beam of light shone on him. He then saw ten beings dressed in white standing in a circle. The beings were five-foot five inches tall, wearing skintight outfits that covered their faces. Their heads were elongated and they had a large round black lens over the eye area, their mouths were slit like and the noses were holes. They had small chests and thin arms. He was then taken onboard an object where he was examined and some robot like beings cut inside his nose. When the witness was released he saw two hovering objects one larger than the other.

Summary:  One night a platoon of soldiers were conducting war games in the forest, when the truck malfunctioned and lost all power. One soldier, Edwin Godoy, was ordered to stay behind with the truck as the other men left on foot. Soon after midnight he noticed a figure some 300 meters away from him, standing next to some pine trees in the forest. The figure was very tall, and its body was completely covered with hair. It had dark long grayish hair all over its body and it stood next to the pine trees swinging its body sideways while looking straight at Godoy. It was very strongly built and his eyes glowed red in the dark. The figure suddenly began running towards the witness. After yelling at the figure to stop, he fired a shot into the air then at the figure. The hairy figure grabbed its chest and emitted a loud moan, stopped and then ran to his right disappearing into the forest. Godoy locked himself in the truck until the morning. Later special army units found a peculiar green liquid in the area, believed to have been blood from the creature.

Summary: The two witnesses, twin boys were standing in the hallway when one twin began felling very odd. It felt like an earth tremor was striking. There were vibrations and tremors running through him. His brother began feeling the same thing too. The atmosphere of the house had altered, it felt tense and silent. Even the dogs appeared to be affected. Then a bright light appeared as a reflection in the frosted glass of the doorway. At the same time a small figure ran through the hall and headed upstairs. Only one of the twins saw the figure, which was described as 3-feet tall and dressed in an all black jumpsuit with a helmet covering the head. The dog suddenly went berserk and then headed off into a corner remaining there whimpering and cowering. One of the twins obtained a knife and searched the house for the intruder, of course nothing was found.

Summary: The witness was lying down on his bed attempting to go to sleep when he began to feel an unusual spinning sensation. His whole body appeared to be vibrating. As his mind began to clear he became aware of standing inside what he assumed was a “spaceship,” the surroundings were pulsating with a brilliant light. He felt a mental message and saw a group of seven beings standing directly in front of him, both male and female. Some stood around and others were manipulating some sort of control. One of the beings that was human in appearance and wore a pure white suit looked at the witness with the most intense and penetrating eyes he ever witnesses. A beautiful glow surrounded the beings and the witness felt a sense of peace emanating from them. The white-garbed beings, that seemed to be the leader communicated with the witness by using telepathy. He spoke of the energy used to propel their ship and of many other subjects including the cosmic mind and creation. Soon he found himself back on his bed with a clear memory of all that had transpired.

It was not hairy, had big eyes, fangs, a long snout, three claws for the feet, but these were circular, and appeared not to be worn out. It also had a small hairy tail.

Time: late night
Summary: A certain N, a translator, went to bed one late night in her Moscow flat when suddenly her two lap dogs started to whine and skulking in a corner. A few minutes later there appeared in front of a rather large window an enormously tall figure. N had no time to react as she heard (not in her ears, but rather at the nape of her neck, as she puts it) a very definite phrase thrice repeated, “I need your mind, I need your mind, I need your mind”. The voice was calm, masculine, mechanical, and somewhat robot-like. Next she felt a sharp pain in the back of her head and in both temples and fainted. Having not reported to her office the next day, the worried colleagues went to her place after the working day. Thy heard the dogs whining behind the door. They opened the door with the help of the police and found N lying on the floor unable to move. With the help of doctors she came to her senses and said: “I have an impression that all my energy had been sucked out of her”. It took her a rather long time to recover.
