Location. Framingham Massachusetts
Date: January 4 1984 Time: late night
The witness recalls lying fully awake with his eyes closed feeling a strange irritation in his left eye; he tried to rub his eye but found that he could not move. When he finally opened his eyes he saw what appeared to be a mirror on the ceiling reflecting a green pencil thin beam of light that was shooting directly into his right eye. He also saw a figure of a small being holding what appeared to be a hair dryer. He felt that his mind was being read. He struggled and finally was able to move, he then rushed to the window and looked out just in time to see an object shaped like a barrel with a set of tripod legs rising from the ground. It also had bright orange lights shining from inside of it.

Location:  St George, Utah
Time:  22:00 
Summary: Eight lights all different colors traveling across the sky in a uneven V formation with small vapor trails. Eight lights all different colors traveling across the sky in a uneven V formation with small vapor trails. I never really thought about reporting what we had seen, we were just kids. People don’t believe adults, never mind kids. We were walking down the sidewalk looking for a place to eat. We were staying at a motel in a small town somewhere in southwestern Utah. As we were walking down walked we noticed something on the ground flopping around like a fish. When we got closer we noticed it was a bat fighting a bug. As the bat flew away our eyes followed it toward the sky. Upon looking up we observed about eight lights in the sky. They traveled from left to right. Each was a different color and they were flying in a v formation. One side of the formation was one light longer than the other side. I believe the right side was longer than the left. As they crossed the sky, they left a small vapor like trail behind them. They were far away it seemed and moved in the same direction across the sky for the duration of the sighting. They made no sound but again they were also far away. When all of a sudden they seemed to head in a more upward direction. Then in a split second they were gone and now left a longer trail behind. Each trail was they same color as each light that left it. They seemed to go up at an angle and did not cross the sky. The trails slowly dissipated and nothing more was seen of the objects. I have never heard of another sighting like ours. I have told the story to a few close friends only, due to the fact people look at you like your crazy. I have no opinion of what is was. I only know I can’t explain it and have seen nothing since that can.

Date: January 22 1984
Location:  Nr. Way Cross. Georgia
Time: 7:00 PM.  
Summary:  While parked in a wooded area, a young couple spotted a large object approaching their car at treetop level. The object crossed the logging road near their car, went across an open area to a stand of trees, then turned end-for-end. At this point the driver put the car in gear and started down the road at a high rate of speed. Then the object made its way back toward the road and took a position directly over the car at a very low altitude. The object had an L-shaped light pattern on the underside with two brilliant red lights and one green light. The glow from the red lights lit up the inside of the car and both occupants became hysterical. When the car reached the county road, the driver turned left and the object turned right. Then the object swung around and moved in behind the car and followed the fleeing vehicle for about 75 feet, turned left, and moved away at a high rate of speed. The sheriffs office received several calls about a strange lighted object in the area that night.

The driver estimated that the object got to within 150 feet of the car, maintained an altitude of about 150 feet and was at least 25 feet in diameter. A vertical shaft of white light was also observed coming from the top of the object. After arriving home two witnesses observed three helicopters moving about in the area where the object was seen.

Twenty minutes later the husband observed a big, bright object ascending vertically from the same ridge, pause in mid-air, then move horizontally and disappear in the distance. The object that descended appeared to be as big as a hot air balloon. (The Center received  55 calls from a 15 county area describing the descent of a glowing object over New Jersey.)  An orange sphere was seen to land on a ridge. Two witnesses saw the UFO descend and land, while many others saw a bigger object rise from the same spot 20 minutes later.

Time:  9:00 PM.
Summary:  Jan. 30, 1984;
Mine men working on an oil platform observed a bright orange object descending from the sky at a high rate of speed. When at an estimated altitude of 10,000 feet and about five miles distant, the object came to an instant stop. The bright orange glow faded and the crew observed an object with a bright chrome dome-shaped top and dozens of flashing lights on the underside. All witnesses agreed that the object was huge: no less than 200 feet in diameter. After remaining stationary for about ten seconds the object turned a bright orange and instantly moved away to the east at a high rate of speed. The total observation time was about one minute. (A witness at Jensen Beach, about 100 miles northeast of the oil platform, observed the object dropping from the sky in a high speed vertical descent. Two witnesses in the Miami area also saw the object; one while the object was stationary west of Miami and the other while the object was moving to the east.)
