The witness was alone late at night when she heard a loud humming sound over the house and then in her rear patio area. She went to look and saw a small shiny metallic disc shaped craft descend and hover over some ornamental plants. The witness stepped back and suddenly a huge man-like figure materialized in front of her. The figure was about seven-foot tall, very pale and with large dark slanted eyes. He was wearing a tunic like garment with a hood all in white. Only his face and hands were visible. The witness felt a mental message telling her not to be afraid. She was told to watch as the being pointed at this chest, there a television like screen became visible. She then heard another message that stated, “You are destroying this garden and is not yours.” She then saw horrible scenes of devastation and death, including earthquakes and fires. The witness at this point knelt down and begged forgiveness for all humanity. The being then moved his head and vanished. At the same time the small shiny disc shot away into the sky and disappeared.

Two men were camping in an isolated area near Hog Back Ridge and during the night one had gone to tend the campfire and perform some physiological needs when a huge rectangular shaped craft descended over the camp, coming from behind the ridge. The craft made no sound whatsoever. Suddenly both men found themselves apparently onboard the object confronted by four human-like beings that spoke to them for quite some time. However the witnesses do not remember what the content of the conversation was and have almost no memory of their time onboard the craft. They woke up the next morning back in their tents.

Two Italian workers were traveling by car on the night of the full moon when as they approached a field they heard a loud noise and saw a very bright colorful beam of light on the side of the road. They slowed their vehicle and then noticed three peculiar figures approaching their car. These figures were tall and man-like and appeared to be wearing black monk-like outfits that covered their bodies completely except for their faces. These were upturned and looked towards the sky as if looking for something. Their arms hung on their sides. The figure on the far left side was carrying on his right hand a type of lantern that was emitting the bright beam of light first seen by the witnesses. The two men apparently then drove away from the area.

A woman driving her car accompanied by her two daughters (15 and 14 years) and by another 13 year old girl was frightened by the sudden appearance of a patch of smoke or fog that suddenly enveloped the van. All the normal noises then seemed to stop around the women while they seemed to “float” inside a “cloud”. Worried, as soon as they were able to leave the “cloud” they drove to a friend’s house, there they discovered that they had lost 30 minutes of time, during which they could not account for their activities. During the hours that followed they suffered from various physiological reactions and the following day, marks, resembling strange punctures appeared on the skin of two of the girls. Soon they experienced strange dreams in which “men” were pointing strange weapons or objects at their heads. The witnesses reported the strange event to the police who advised them to contact a private UFO organization.

In a hill located in the countryside a 50-year old peasant, Bernardo Martinez reported encountering a beautiful and luminous female apparition attributed to have been the Holy Virgin. The apparition indeed told the witness that she was “Mary” that she had come from the sky (heaven) and was the mother of Jesus. Apparently she instructed the witness to build a chapel in her honor at the location of their meeting. She gave an overall message of peace. (This seems to have been a recurring theme related to this type of encounter).

In the area near the German border close to the Albert Canal the owner of a mushroom plantation was inspecting the caves where he grew the mushrooms when he spotted nearby a metallic circular object about 5.20 meters in diameter hovering about 50 cm from the ground. From a dome on top of the object an “escalator” descended to the ground then a human like figure came out and descended to the ground and stood next to the object. Two more similar figures came out and walked towards the witness. He described them as totally human in appearance, very pale, eyes slightly larger than normal and about 1.60 meters in height. They wore light colored combination outfits. The beings began speaking among themselves, saying: “What are we doing here?” the witness overheard them, (apparently the beings spoke in French) and started to explain that he was cultivating mushrooms, asking them if they wanted some. They replied, “Yes.” Then the witness led them into the caves, and took a wooden tray containing several mushrooms, which he offered them. But the leader said he only wanted one piece. As soon as that single mushroom was placed in his hand, they all turned away and reboarded their machine, which took off and disappeared in the direction of Holland. The local gendarmerie was alerted, and interrogated the witness. The same day, in the afternoon, the witness received 2 visitors in blue military uniform (Belgian Air Force?) who were speaking French with a Liege accent. After listening to his story, they then warned him “that he would be better off if he not seen anything.”

Time: before midnight
Just before midnight two couples were returning from a day at the beach in their Renault when the driver spotted a woman standing by the roadside. He stopped to pick her up and she settled in snugly between the two women in the back. The driver told the woman where they were headed but she said nothing and simply nodded her head. The car continued on its way, then just as they were approaching a sharp bend, the woman cried out: “Look out for the turn! You are risking your life!” The driver slowed the car and safely turned the bend, when suddenly he heard cries coming from the backseat—the hitchhiker had disappeared. A subsequent investigation of the scene revealed nothing. (Phantom hitchhiker?)

The owner of a local hostel heard his dogs barking outside. Looking at a window he was stunned to see a small child-like hand with 5 digits on the window. He described it as thin and long with what appeared “suckers” at the tips. Apparently the “hand” left an imprint on the window glass.
