Date:  December  1979
Location:  Oklahoma, exact location not given
Time:  early morning
Summary:  The witnesses were driving through a rural area when their car was engulfed in a bright white light apparently causing the car engine to stall and the radio to stop playing. They were not able to restart the car and began to walk to the nearest town for help. A short time later they again saw the bright white light behind a small hill near the road. They walked over to the hill and observed a hovering saucer shaped object with several small men doing something around the object. The terrified witnesses hid behind the hill until the small men returned to the object and it shot straight up and was soon lost from sight.

Date:  December 2 1979
Location:  Mt. Vernon, IN
Time:  4:55 – 5:10 PM.
Summary:   Six witnesses (including yours truly) observed a descending object for 15 minutes that went from a bright distant light in the NW to a pair of bright headlights to what appeared to be a huge jet aircraft with external lights, but with NO sound approximating a small business jet or passenger aircraft as one would hear at an airport, and only 500 feet away (or less) and no more than a hundred feet over the W-E highway. We later found that others had seen it and also later on that month. Evansville‘s Dress-Regional Airport had no explanation.

Location:  Mt. Vernon, IN
Time:  Evening
Summary:   Blimp-like object seen my motorists on Hwy. 62 between Mt. Vernon & Evansville.  On the 13th of Dec., I got a call from a gentleman near Marrs Township, about 8 miles down the highway from Mt. Vernon, IN. At about 5:00 PM on the 2nd, the same night we saw the weird “jet”, he had seen what he thought was a jet with a fire on the right engine. At the same time, a lady from New Harmony had seen it, also. A friend of mine, a lady who worked at the Index store down from miy store, hadn’t seen it, but her son had. And he drew a picture of it. He doesn’t know what the time was, exactly, but the detail he observed and his ability to draw it makes us wonder what in the world (or off of it) flew over that evening. And it made no sound when he saw it. (Ref. 10)

Date: December 2 1979
Time: night
While stopped for gas on the Corso Europa way, F Zanfretta was approached by a tall figure with an oval shaped head that wore a loose fitting windbreaker. At the same time a fog like mist surrounded the gas pumps and the figure ordered Zanfretta to accompany him. (Local residents reported a power outage around the same time.) Zanfretta obeyed, he was eventually taken onboard a craft which then landed in a wooded area near Marzano. While flying over the area he reportedly saw the earth looking like a ball of marble free-floating in space. The occupants of the craft also showed him numerous photographs of friends and others, which he did not know. He was also shown a large glass cylinder filled with a blue liquid, inside floated a huge hairy man like creature resembling a “Bigfoot” type humanoid. In another container he saw a horrible creature resembling a prehistoric pterodactyl. In yet another container he saw a large toad-like creature. While onboard the craft he met the tall green colored reptilian humanoid that called himself “Dargos”, which he had met on previous occasions. The tall humanoid offered Zanfretta a transparent sphere that contained a rotating golden pyramid as proof of their existence, but Zanfretta refused to accept it.

Location:  Lorraine, Moselle
Time:  around 16:50
Summary:  two witnesses observe a triangular shaped object emitting two traces of red smoke. The object flew over a radio tower, then stopped a few seconds before setting out again. The witnesses followed it until it went out of sight, red smoke being visible until the end of the observation. A third witness observed at the same time a very shiny point in the sky without being able to make a correlation between the two observations. The investigation did not make it possible to identify air traffic corresponding to the observations and this observation remains unexplained.

Two men out in a hilly and wooded area looking for “Bigfoot” type creatures suddenly heard machine like sounds coming from possibly from an underground source. Later they both saw a silvery disc shaped object land 130 feet away from them. Two men wearing khaki jump suits, with dark hair approached them. The uniform on the men had a patch on one side of the chest resembling a round black planet with a bolt of yellow orange lighting across it. The men questioned the witnesses on their intentions for several minutes while the witnesses remained paralyzed. Their minds seem to go into a blank and when they regained control the men and the disc were gone.

Summary: Lilli Karlsson was taking an early morning walk on the Brevik Hills when she was suddenly paralyzed. She could see a luminous object hovering close to the ground nearby. Two five-foot tall thin humanoids appeared from behind the object. The witness felt that they were discussing her. She heard a voice that told her not to be afraid. One approached and stretched its hand to her, but she remained paralyzed. They talked among themselves then returned back to the object. Smoke came from under the object and it disappeared.

Time: 0700A
Someone knocking on the door awakened Jean Pierre Provost, one of the three men who experienced a bizarre UFO incident earlier; the other two men remained sleeping. Opening the door he was confronted by three men. One was of medium height, neatly attired in a dark green suit, black tie, white shirt and green vest. He had black hair, mustache, and beard. The other two men were taller and very strongly build. Prevost was stunned to see that these two men had completely white eyes, lacking any pupils and stared at him fixedly. The bearded man asked him if he was one of the three witnesses. When he confirmed that he was, he was warned by the man not to talk anymore about the incident, since they had already said too much. The men then walked silently away and Prevost was unsure how they left since he did not hear them take the nearby elevator.

Location. Providence Rhode Island
Date: December 10 1979
Time: night
The witness was in bed awake when a white light appeared and she lost consciousness. Under hypnosis she remembered floating up a beam of light into a semi circular room inside an object. A being gave her a smock and she put it on without resistance. She then lay on a table while she saw another man on a different table. She was connected to the man by some instruments and a blood transfusion apparently took place. A giant being dressed in a black metallic suit stood over her and relieved her pain. By using telepathy he said his name was “Tabar.”

After receiving telepathic messages directing him to an isolated area outside of town, Prof Clemente Aragaki drove to the location followed very closely and at a low altitude by a disc shaped object, with bright red, violet & white lights. As he stopped his vehicle, the disc descended over him. The witness was instructed to touch the bright pulsating lights on the object (telepathically) and as he did he found several small white colored crystal like stones in his hands. He never saw the aliens, and only communicated telepathically.

Date:  December 29 1979
Location:   N. Illinois
Time:  11:00 PM.
Summary:  “We had a call from the sheriff’s department at 11:00 PM, and they said they were looking at a UFO. We looked on the radar and observed the target in the area westbound, very fast. There were three controllers and myself. We watched the target and it stopped, changed direction to a north heading, went north for about three miles, stopped again, went southwest for five miles, stopped again, went westbound right up to the Mississippi River, stopped there, then continued westbound. It covered 54 miles in three-and-one half minutes, plus it stopped four times. We were receiving a strong return. There were no known aircraft in the area. I have never seen an aircraft at that speed turn that fast. The stops were very abrupt and the turns were very abrupt. I don’t know of any airplane that can turn that fast. We picked up a second object at 11:04 PM and it proceeded southwest until it was directly over the Mississippi River at which time it turned southbound and paralleled right over the river for about half-a-mile and moved away to the west-southwest. After we picked up the second object, I checked back with the sheriff’s department and was advised that they had observed another object. The position the sheriff gave me correlated with the targets we saw.”

Summary:  Laborer Sebastiano Pannitteri suddenly woke up in his bedroom and observed a strange phenomenon. The electricity seemed to be out and he heard his brother in law’s dog growling outside. Looking out the window he saw a luminous white mass approaching within the light he could see a human like figure. Stunned he approached the window and saw the back of a very tall figure wearing a very tight fitting luminous white coverall that accentuated its musculature. The head was round and was either bald or covered with a white helmet. The being’s shoulders and chest area appeared wider than normal. He had what appeared to be several black dots on his upper back. His arms were at his sides. It seemed to move slowly at first but after five minutes it appeared to glide, quickly disappearing over a nearby wall.
