Summary:  Two young men were returning home late one night when they spotted a bright light approaching form the direction of a nearby wooded area. The light began performing circular movements and zigzagging at high speed. After a minute they stopped looking at the light, suddenly they both were engulfed in a bright flash of light from an unknown source, a mist of multicolored smoke began forming around them. Suddenly they saw a short brown furry looking figure with two large red eyes staring at them. It appeared to float just above the ground. The figure approached and began staring at one of the witnesses, after what seemed to be a few minutes the multicolored mist began forming again it covered the figure and it vanished. They both now saw a hovering silvery oval shaped craft with a row of square windows nearby, inside the windows they could see several moving dark human like figures. The object then shot away towards the wooded area emitting a bright flash of light. The two witnesses reported a 4-hour period of missing time.

Summary:  Two young women students had just left a party and were driving through an unfamiliar area of the city when they suddenly came upon what appeared to be a six-car pile up in the middle of the intersection. There were six wrecked vehicles but there was not anybody in sight. No emergency vehicles, no flashing lights or police. They felt uneasy and drove by slowly arriving home later than usual. After being bothered by this strange episode both women decided to use hypnosis in order to find any hidden information. Apparently one of the women was abducted while the other remained in a state of suspended animation in the vehicle. Several short gray humanoids took one of the women into a hovering object and medically examined her then returned her back to the vehicle. She was then told that she would only remember a six-car pile up.

Location: Brentwood California
Time: late night
Summary: The witness was reading in bed with her boyfriend sleeping next to her when she noticed the figure of a small “man” standing on the right side of the bed, by her boyfriend. The being was 4-foot tall with grayish tan skin that was very rough textured. He had a large head with a pointed chin and large dark slanted eyes. The witness attempted to scream but found herself totally paralyzed. She also felt a tingling sensation through her body. The being reached across the bed over her boyfriend and attempted to touch her. His hand had four fingers with webbing in between them and long fingernails. In her mind she heard the words “Do not worry I wont hurt you, I just want to examine you.” Just before the being touched her, the boyfriend jostled and tossed in bed, this apparently startled the little being that then jumped back and disappeared in a white flash of light.

Summary: Irina Subbotina had fallen into a lethargic sleep next to her husband when she was suddenly awakened by a circle of light in the bedroom in front of the bed near the ceiling. Within the circle of light she saw a dark haired man in profile that suddenly turned and looked at her. He stares at her intently, apparently examining her. Then two more figures appear within the circle, one a bearded man, the second a child wearing “old time” clothing. Curiously the child appears to be swinging on an invisible swing. Terrified, Irina attempted to shout but could not utter a word. Suddenly the vision disappears and she felt a small hand grabbing her wrist she also sees what appears to be an invisible body moving under the covers near her. She was suddenly able to pull her hand and began to cry. Everything then disappeared. She would have a further “encounter” in the summer.

Summary:  Ed Walters was in his pickup truck on US 98 when an object appeared ahead of him shining a white beam of light through the windshield partially paralyzing his forearms and hands. He stopped the truck to the side of the road. He now felt numb and his arms were stinging. The object approached quickly and now hovered 3-feet above the roadway. The witness was able to grab his shotgun and exited the truck attempting to crawl under it. At this point the object brightened and it came closer. The witness was again hit on the back of his legs by a white beam of light. The object now began rotating and a blue beam of light appeared under it. The beam apparently deposited five small beings on the roadway, all wore some type of shield like coverings had large black oval shaped eyes and carried glowing rods. The beings now walked towards the witness, who then managed to crawl back into the truck and was somehow able to start it, he then drove quickly away from the area at high speed.
