Summary:  A lone motorist driving alone a high bank by a cornfield saw a gray figure standing on the road, which she thought was a man. When she approached she could see that it was a very tall winged reptilian like creature with a humanoid face and a very pointed chin. The wings on the creature began flapping and it rose up flying above the witness car, it made the car shake as it apparently caused some wind displacement, it quickly vanished from sight.

Summary:  A man and his fiancée were walking on a narrow wooded trail when they heard what sounded like a bear coming up towards them from the left side of the trail. The mountain had thick underbrush on both sides of the trail, so they were unable to see exactly what it was until it stepped onto the trail approximately 20-30 feet in front of them. They described seeing a large black furred animal that was much larger than a bear, and had a long bushy tail and pointed snout similar to a wolf. When it first appeared on the trail it was walking on all fours. They both noticed a foul odor coming from it and it made their hairs stand on end. At first it seemed the creature was unaware that they were even there, so they stayed completely quiet as the man eased his fiancée behind him in a feeble attempt to protect her in case the thing attacked. When it stepped on the trail it suddenly came to a stop, stood up on his hind legs like a man, and then turned and stared at them. It had small eyes that shone bright neon red. It was about 7 ft tall. It then walked off the very steep side of the mountain to the right of the trail still standing on its hind legs.

Lothar Schafler (involved in a previous UFO abduction) was walking along a street when he encountered a mysterious man in a long black coat. The man approached him from behind, repeated the same previous threat, (not to talk about his UFO encounter) and then disappeared by dissolving into nothing.

A farmer was riding his motorcycle into town when he observed a “monster like” being enclosed in what appeared to be a glass cage, sitting in the center of the town square. The humanoid was seated, very tall, and very erect with his hands on his knees. His entire body was engulfed in long green filaments. He had very long hair and it was standing on end. As the witness approached he was overcome by a powerful odor that made him disoriented. He walked back to his motorcycle and then heard a sound similar to glass breaking, as he looked back he saw two blond girls screaming. No other information.

John Melton was driving with his family to their rural home after a baseball game, it was still daylight and as they headed along a gravel road his wife saw a glowing domed object sitting on a field some 100 yards away, the family (father, mother, two teenagers) watched with such interest they nearly ran over a little man, described as being the size of a small thin child and wearing a one-piece suit which was light in color, that was standing at the edge of the road. It so frightened John that he swerved and gave the car gas—as they looked back, the little man was being peppered with gravel from the spinning tires and ran toward the object. They didn’t stop but went on home and didn’t go back to look for traces. There were other low level encounters of UFOs in the area.

Vicky Malagrino remembers being in a state between sleep and awake when she suddenly felt herself take off, vividly he felt traveling very fast, like in an underground subway, he came to a stop in a few seconds. She found herself standing in front of a row of houses in New York and she entered one of the houses and went to the 3rd or 5th floor and entered an empty apartment. There she walked over to a window, which was cut open in a circular shape. She then remembers a UFO come down and picking her up. Soon she remembered seeing the earth getting smaller as she left. What she remembers well was that the initial travel feeling or phase had been underground. She also remembered standing on the “first floor” of the UFO, looking around. She saw three human-like persons to his left at the controls, which appeared to have large windows on top. The figures definitely looked human from the back and they were wearing form fitting uniforms. She also saw to his right a single bed and on this bed there was a military blanket, which has always stayed with him in that she thought that it was an important piece of information. She also saw “in her mind” the second floor and it was round and the wall was full of computer consoles. That’s the extent of the witness memory of the event.

The witness was cycling home one night when he noticed a very bright circular light in the sky. He sat on his bike staring at the object when it suddenly dropped down and landed in front of him. A flap like door opened and 5 to 6 beings came out. These were about 6-feet tall, with oval shaped heads, black oval eyes, and gray in color. The witness approached the craft and felt being dragged inside. Soon he found himself on a table with screens in front of him and the beings looking over him. He remembered looking out a window and seeing the Earth and stars. His next memory was of being back where he saw the craft, 45 minutes had passed.

Date: March 1980
Time: 2330
A motorist heading towards Huesca observed at 100 meters from the road on a field, a large object resting on the ground. It was rectangular in shape, the size of a large trailer and emitted a yellowish light from several vertical openings; on top it had two small red lights. The witness left his vehicle and walked closer to the object. Around the object he observed two or three tall human like figures, all heavy set and wearing shiny whitish outfits. The witness went back to his vehicle and left the area expressing surprise that the beings did not react when they had surely seen him. The next day a flattened area on the wheat field was found.

Four witnesses were awaken by noises in their patio where they kept some caged rabbits, looking out they were stunned to see five strange looking beings inspecting the cages. Two of the beings were five-foot tall and the other 3 were three-foot tall and heavier set. The tall thinner ones wore a one-piece brown outfit, had grayish skins with large ears, large eyes and a large flat nose and large thick lips. Their fingers were large and were connected by a thin membrane; both carried a bright metallic sphere in their right hands. The smaller beings were similar in appearance, except that they had large brilliant medallions hanging from their necks and belts. An independent witness saw the same or five similar beings entering a landed disc shaped craft on a roadway near the village.

Three witnesses saw two mysterious objects maneuvering over the area. One object had orange and white lights and appeared to be domed as it descended lower. The second object was red in color and resembled a diamond, both objects were silent. Later as two of the witnesses drove home they passed by a strange figure walking on the road, it had long gray hair, and appeared to be a man with a thin face of about 50 years of age. He wore a Macintosh and a dark coat; they had to swerve to avoid hitting him. On the way back they saw a similar figure with gray hair and a pale face they also had to swerve the car. And as they reached Knowsley Lane they encountered a third similar figure with long gray hair walking in the middle of the roadway, they almost hit this one too. At no time did any of the figures acknowledge the presence of their vehicle.

The witness was in her vehicle driving back home when she noticed a luminous white sphere descend to the right of the car. The object then positioned itself over the car as the witness seemed to loose control of the steering, her vision became blurred, and she was overcome by sleep. She had the impression of being levitated up into the hovering sphere. She woke up inside the object and was confronted by three short one-meter tall humanoids that assured her that she was not going to be hurt. She was apparently given a medical examination as the beings spoke among themselves in an unknown language. She was eventually released unharmed.

A security guard making his rounds on the grounds of the local hospital encountered a strange four-foot tall being wearing a gray outfit with headgear, it wore two bright medallions on its chest and it had gray skin. It had large slightly slanted deep-set eyes, a flat nose and a large wide mouth; it also had large pointy ears. The witness also noticed black hair under the head cover. The guard pointed his revolver at the little man and suddenly this one spoke in a guttural voice and yelled “Life!” The guard fired his weapon anyway with no apparent effect and then he fainted. When he came to the little man had disappeared.

A farmer was alone in his house when he suddenly heard someone knocking on his window; he stepped out to check and was confronted by two men that asked him for water. The two men wore silvery outfits, had light skin and dark hair, with very attractive features, and looked very similar to each other. The witness brought them a bottle of Seltzer water and asked them if they spoke English. They did not reply and then walked towards a nearby huge dazzling hovering object. The witness panicked and went to notify the police, but both the object and the men had departed when he returned with the authorities.

Summary: The day after a security guard had encountered a bizarre creature on the grounds of the local hospital, a nurse and a female visitor to the pediatric wing of said hospital saw a strange female being, with pointed ears and large eyes, wearing a tight fitting gray outfit. Upon being seen the creature ran from the area and disappeared. The reason both witnesses could tell that it was a female is that the outline of breasts could be seen on its tight fitting outfit.

Summary:   A man recuperating from surgery at a local hospital was looking out the window when he saw a football-shaped object silently gliding over a nearby building. The object had multi-colored lights along its upper edge. As the object passed in front of the witness it briefly turned some lights on, illuminating four white windows along the middle of the craft. The witness was then able to see several figures at the windows, their heads facing the direction of the flight. The figures were humanoid with short-cropped hair and normal human features. The object made several passes over the area before leaving.

Summary:   Jackie Jones, Dave, and son Jason were ready to retire for the night when they suddenly heard an unusual sound coming from the boat dock. The noise sounded like a combination of a lion and elephant roar. Jackie turned on the outside light, which connected to the boat dock when they saw the outline of something moving in the weeds. The creature was estimated to have been 2-3 feet wide, around 300 pounds, 5 feet in height and seemed to have a flat face. However, no eyes, ears, or snout could be seen, possibly due to the darkness. The witnesses said the creature tried to jerk their trailer home around, as if trying to push it over. Dave then decided to go out and investigate. When the creature advanced toward him, he became frightened and shot at the creature with his shotgun. The creature then appeared to jump back into the river and quietly swim towards the east. (Apparently the shotgun did not have any effect on the creature, since it was seen again the next day.)
