Summary:  Joseph Ostrom and his wife were sleeping in a third floor hotel room when a loud electrical humming sound, and the barking of dogs in the street below suddenly awakened him. He opened his eyes and found the room filled with a reddish orange light. He woke up his wife and jumped out of bed running towards the balcony, he looked out and could not see anything, he then went back to bed and later recalled that the room door opened and a very tall man entered. The tall figure invited the witness to come with him; he was then led to the roof and saw a small gray colored disc hovering overhead. A turquoise beam of light hit the witness who became paralyzed and was then floated up into the craft. He was then taken to a larger “mother-ship” type object then into a dimly lit room with a very high ceiling. He then saw a thin gray skinned figure, with a long thin face sitting at a nearby table. They communicated with him, and then took him to a huge floating city like structure. There he saw numerous human like beings wearing one-piece suits of different colors and boots. He is later taken on an extensive tour then returned.

Location:  Lawitta, Tasmania
Time:  2150
Summary:  While driving alone a man noted his car radio died. Pressing the station button had no effect and the radio remained dead. Seconds later an intense white light enveloped the car and he could not see beyond the bonnet. The car’s lights and motor failed in the same instant. Beyond this events are vague and the next thing he knew he was being stopped by police for driving his car without lights.He was taken to hospital and examined where he was found to be in a state of shock. His vehicle, a Ford Cortina 71TC, was inspected and found to have a flat battery and the oil level was low. The cut-off switch on the alternator needed replacing, as did wiring, especially the headlights. Radiator water was also low. The reporter did not want further investigations conducted.

Date: February 2 1979
Location:  Leusderheide, 3 miles from Soesterberg AFB in the Netherlands
Time:  Afternoon. 
Summary:  Josie Zwinenberg was riding her horse along an area known as the Leusderheide. As she approached the highest point of this area, she brought her horse to a stop and looked out at a stand of trees about a half-mile away. There, she saw an object silently hovering above the trees. She estimated the object was about 100 to 165 feet in length. It was not an aircraft of any type she had ever seen. Living near Soesterberg, she had seen many dif­ferent aircraft fly in and out of the base, but nothing like this object hovering above the trees. This object had many bright white lights interspaced with blue lights. The lights were so bright that she could not make out the exact shape of the craft. This object made no noise and seemed to be perfectly still. She was awestruck by the color of the blue lights, saying it was the brightest blue she had ever noticed, but it did not hurt her eyes to look directly at them. She watched the object for a full 15 minutes and noticed that it did not seem to be affected by gravity at all; it was perfectly motionless the en­tire time. As she approached the object on horseback, she kept it in view until she reached the trees. At that point, she stopped under the trees to try to look underneath the object. Then, she heard some rustling sounds coming from the brush in the forest. Her horse also reacted to the sounds. When she looked up, the object was gone.

Location:  Camp New Amsterdam, Netherlands

Summary:   An object with three very bright white lights and one red light flew at an altitude of 150 to 200 meters (about 500 to 650 feet) and an average speed of 50 to 100 kilometers per hour (about 30 to 60 miles per hour) over the flight line of the Soesterberg base. At times it was seen to emit a beam of light to the ground. The object did not make a sound and was seen by many airmen at the base. The object twice flew along the flight line before departing at a high rate of speed. This was the summary of an investigative report by three members of the working group NOBOVO, including Dr. W. deGraaff, who worked at the (Harmons) Astronomical Institute.

Time:  2100
Summary:  A banana farmer was returning home when he became aware of a dull white light sitting on the bitumen on the left hand side of the road. Nearing the light he saw what looked like a dark beehive shape behind it. The light then rose vertically and when it was an estimated ten metres away and one metre off the ground, there was a blinding flash. Upon regaining his sight he realized that the car’s headlights, dash lights and engine had all ceased to function. The reporter put the car into neutral (it was an automatic) and coasted to a stop.He was just lighting a cigarette when the headlights and dash lights came back on by themselves. He tried the engine which started the first time and he drove home. Once home he inspected the vehicle. Battery leads were on tight, terminals were free of corrosion. No lasting side effects were noticed. A magnetic signature check revealed nothing abnormal.

Several witnesses at the city outskirts near the main road, observed a flat cucumber-shaped craft descend towards an embankment, it emitted a strong red light then hovered very close to the ground making up and down movements and at times touching the ground, with one of its three leg like protrusions. A crowd gathered and some walked towards the object getting close enough to see lighted windows and moving figures inside. The object also emitted a wave of extreme heat. After about two hours the object departed at very high speed.

Glancing ahead of her, she saw a bright orange hovering spinning sphere. She then looked to her side and saw nearby, standing in the shadows among some bushes two silvery-garbed humanoid figures that appeared to be smiling. The dog then briefly distracted the witness and when she looked up again the figures were gone. The bright orange sphere then vanished; the dog then ran home barking.

Phil Shepherdson was riding his motorbike along some twisting country lanes when he saw, hovering in the corner of a field, a black triangular shaped craft. He saw a figure in the cockpit of the craft and two other figures by the side. These turned to stare at him, and he believes some sort of mental contact was made. The figure inside the “cockpit” wore a black helmet and coverall. The 2 figures by the craft were tall and slim, and wore also dark coveralls and helmets, at first they appeared to be crouching but stood up as the witness approached, then stared at him intently. As Shepherdson stood transfixed, the craft suddenly took off at high speed, he does not remember seeing the figures entering the object. The craft was dark metallic, and had two fins on its back.

Summary: 49-year old Ernesto Camusoni was clearing some overgrown fields at the entrance to the farm when suddenly everything became illuminated behind him, turning the night into day. Turning around he saw an approaching object that landed 40 meters away from his location. He tried to make out what the object looked light but the light emanating from it was to strong. As he approached the object he saw a strange figure emerge from the rear of the craft. The figure appeared to be robot-like in nature, lacking any arms; it did not move its body when it walked. Its head appeared to be of normal size, but it had what appeared to be a trunk-like object coming from the facial area. It wore a very shiny outfit. The strange being walked towards the witness and approached to within 3 meters and stood silently, seemingly observing the witness. The witness felt no fear, but did feel curiosity towards the strange entity. Apparently the entity did not want to communicate since it suddenly wheeled around, returning to the object and then disappearing behind it. The craft then rose up and disappeared at high speed towards the south. The whole encounter lasted 5 minutes. Ground traces were found the next day.
