Summary:  The witness was suddenly awaken by a huge light moving silently down from the moors and heading straight for her home. She panicked and leaped from her bed in an attempt to get away. She then suddenly found herself outside in the open sitting on the grass. A huge oval shaped lights had apparently landed close to the house on a nearby field. A small egg shaped object could be seen inside the glowing oval. Three figures then emerged from the front of the object and began to walk towards her. These were described as slightly under normal human height and slim in build. At this point the scene changed and the witness found herself back in bed unable to account for one hour of missing time. The next morning as she checked the chicken coop she found nine dead animals without any obvious sign of attack from a predator.

Summary:  The witness was out walking when she came upon a small van parked on the road. The van was white, with what looked like blue clouds and flowers painted on it. As she approached the van, its door suddenly opened and a “midget” jumped down in front of her. She kept slowly walking as she and the short man gazed at each other. The little midget resembled a cute “doll” with an immaculate checkered shirt and dungarees, but she was startled with his eyes, which were jet black, marble like, with two white dots where the pupils should have been. He seemed to have Eskimo features, with dull black, straight hair, roughly cut. As he passed by her she tried to look over her shoulder to see him, but her neck did not seem to respond normally.

Location. Near Upper Baracatan Philippines
Date: May 1979
Time: afternoon
An American scientist and 600 Filipinos sighted a round object like a huge balloon emitting flashes of light over a high mountain peak. The object remained in the area for about 20 minutes and the scientist was able to observe it with binoculars. He said he was able to see figures or “objects” moving inside the craft. The object had two appendages directly below it, one that produced strobe like effects. The UFO then landed in an open space behind a cluster of trees. That panicked the locals that quickly ran into their huts. No other information.

Summary:  There had been sightings of low level flying objects over some wooded areas near the town, when one night several children were playing in a field when they noticed a strange little man looking at them from some nearby bushes.

The being had a large round head, two large round eyes, two holes where the nose would have been and no sign of a mouth. It wore dark clothing and had slumped shoulders.

Time:  night
Summary:  A flaming disc shaped object was seen crash landing in an isolated area; it partially buried itself on the ground. It was estimated to have been from 12m to 22 m in diameter. Military units quickly arrived at the site flying in helicopters. The surrounded the object and set up an observation post. They could not approach the object since it emitted a terrific heat, even though radiation was not detected. Those present experienced strong headaches and pressure in their ears. They moved back to within 50 meters from the object. Several personnel equipped with protection suits approached the object and examined it. Soon they heard incomprehensible sounds coming from within the object. Suddenly the visibility fell to zero and weather sharply deteriorated. The object then mysteriously disappeared, either it flew away or it was taken away. Ground traces were examined.

Almost immediately, the group of lights left the ground in an upward direction at great velocity. The car then recovered.

Two school children on their way to school saw a metallic oval-shaped craft made out of shiny chrome like material, flying at a low altitude over a field near the school grounds. In the object they could see within a lighted luminous area a tall 1.80m tall human-like figure. The children claimed that the craft landed nearby and they were invited inside by a tall figure wearing a metallic suit. Inside they were made to lie in a compartment filled with a transparent red liquid. They were then taken on a short trip to different points in the solar system, including Mars and Jupiter.

Location. Sussex England

Time: 2030
The witness was camping with some friends in the “Downs” area when he heard a faint humming sound and went outside to investigate. Outside there was a bright shining light. As the light came closer the witness felt being lifted up in the air by what seemed to be a magnet. He then apparently blacked out. His next memory was of lying on a cold surface with one of his friend lying next to him. Looking to both sides of him, he saw several figures, with sparse tufts of hairs on their heads, large eyes with purple pupils. The figures came over to the witness and spoke to him in an unknown language, but they seemed friendly. They seemed to examine one of the sleeping bags. His next memory was of being on the ground again, and their sleeping bags missing.

Time: 2200
The witness, W R, was taking a walk on a local park when he noticed three bright lights. As he approached he noticed that the lights were on a dark disc-shaped object that was flying above a field. The craft was about 3 m in diameter and resembled a large hockey puck. The witness approached to within 3 meters from the object and was able to observe geometric figures that appeared to form on the surface of the object; he saw triangles, trapezoids, circles, etc. He also noted that the lights appeared to come out from the opposite end of the object. At a certain point he also saw a large illuminated figure shaped like an “H”. Suddenly the object emitted a brilliant blue light and the witness felt a heat wave envelope him. He ran from the area and did not see the object depart.

Time:  0:05 GMT.
Summary:   Pilot (may have been more than 1 witness) of a private plane sighted five orange objects flying in a horizontal line formation which tilted and spread out. The then regrouped into a vertical line formation and then got all mixed up and seemed to come right at the plane as the distance was closing. They lengthened the distance from the pilot out front and went over to his left. At that time both the magnetic compass and the automatic direction finder started spinning. At that point they were again in a straight line formation just before blinking out. According to the pilot, the radio interception was blocked by static and the engine started running rough. At the same time, ground radar had contact on both the plane and the objects. Finally, a large orange object approached the aircraft at a tremendous speed. The pilot climbed rapidly and did not see the object again.
