Date:  March 10 1983
Location:  Ventilla, Bolivia
Time:  
Summary:  A diesel train of 14 cars was stalled by a huge UFO. First seen as an enormous, blinding cloud of light over the city, it then flew toward the train changing color from bright white to glowing orange. Seventy passengers on board were awakened and screamed in terror. A yellow ray of light struck the locomotive and stalled the engine. Engineer Sixto Churaz said that “I tried to start up the engine, but it was dead. Fifteen minutes later the engine suddenly came to life again as the object began to move away from the-train.” The locomotive had just been through an overhaul and was found to be in perfect condition. Experts from the University of Qruro, railroad officials, and local police confirmed that a UFO had paralyzed the train and that it was not a mechanical breakdown. On three previous nights, nearby villagers being harassed by UFOs tried to frighten them off with gunfire. This episode introduces the extreme challenging element of the engine starting by itself as the UFO departed, a circumstance that has been reported on 27 other occasions for spark-ignited engines.”.

He thought the lights were on one solid object and compared its size to that of a 747. He could hear no sound. As he watched, the lights slowly turned 180 degrees “as if on a wheel” and started moving south at walking speed. The object again hovered. All but one blue and one green light went out, and then those lights blinked out. Nothing more was seen.

Date:  March 31 1983
Location:  Sandy Hook, Connecticut
Time:  8:30 pm
Summary:  Thunder, a 175-pound Great Dane, “went crazy” and barked for 3 minutes. His owner, Cindy Tillison, went to see what was going on. Thunder was standing at the sliding doors in the kitchen barking toward the woods. When Tillison looked, she saw a huge V-shaped object. The object remained for 20 minutes and, throughout this time, Thunder appeared frightened and barked continuously with ears straight up. The next day he refused to go out. The V-shaped object was glowing a very bright auburn color and had lights similar to headlights but much larger.  When Tillison flicked her floodlights on and off, the object appeared to move in response, after which she left the lights off.  During the 20 minutes of observation, the object projected a big, steady beam of light, seemingly from its center.  The beam was very wide, estimated a little less than half the size of the object.  The big round lights did change, going off [and on?—jw] and changing colors.  The object disappeared when the witness was not looking.
