Summary: The witness was in her house and was just coming downstairs after going to the bathroom when she noticed a short 3-foot tall figure standing by the patio window. She dozed off for a few moments but was woken up by a throbbing sound and could not move. She then was taken up into a small craft by two short beings. She was later transported to a larger “mother ship.” There she was examined on a long skinny bed by five beings, one taller than the others. These beings were dark and she could not see any facial features. She also remembers seeing a large hangar type room where several small-domed disc shaped objects sat. Next to each object stood a short being. She was eventually floated back to her basement.

Summary: Several teenagers that were practicing the martial arts at an old abandoned mansion spotted several small black dwarf-like beings that appeared to stare at them from the nearby trees. The beings had bright shiny eyes and wore dark loose fitting garments. The beings apparently had the ability to grow in size to nearly twice their size. During the encounters the witnesses curiously felt no fear.

Two young witnesses saw an approaching disc shaped object in the sky, soon the object stopped over he harbor. Frightened the boys hid in their summerhouse. Soon curiosity took over and both went outside again. They saw that the silvery object emitted colorful rays of light in three different directions and was hovering now 20 to 30 meters in the air. A hat shaped object bout 3 meters in diameter now emerged from the bottom of the larger object and descended, landing next to a rock. In the glowing light a small emerald green colored humanoid with a helmet like headgear and a black box-like instrument in its hand could now be seen. It seemed to hop from stone to stone in the shallow water. The humanoid then stopped and placed the black box in the water. After retrieving the black box, the humanoid sort of slid backwards and re-entered the small hat shaped craft, which quickly rose and entered the larger hovering object. This object then flew away at incredible speed. For about a week after the incident both boys were troubled with headaches and general malaise, which soon disappeared.

Whitley Strieber was laying in bed at his cabin when he saw a small figure wearing coal black clothes rimmed in white, like white piping, standing in the door of the bedroom. He had just turned off the light and was settling in the bed when he happened to glance at the door. The little man came rushing into the room. It looked like an attack and the feeling of menace was simply horrible. At that instant Strieber experienced towering anger and fear. He leaped out of bed, picked up the night table beside the bed, and hurled it across the room with all his might. The lamp shattered, the table shattered and the figure disappeared. At this point his wife woke up but she nothing.

A relative of Whitley Strieber was awakened at a very late hour by the sound of a helicopter hovering over his house. This woke him right up because he has never heard a helicopter over his house, and certainly not at that late hour. It was a singular and disturbing experience; especially since lights playing around the outside of the house accompanied it. He sat up and was astonished to see a small figure moving stealthily at the foot of the bed. This sent a blast of fear and rage through him and he hurled a Fender electric guitar at it with all his might. This is a fairly heavy instrument with a solid wood body, and it slammed against a standing plant at the foot of the bed with considerable force. He had the impression that something had darted out the window. He went to sleep fitfully, until morning. He raised the blinds as usual and was astonished to find that the top pane of his bedroom window had been cut in a neat circle, as if by a glasscutter.

The witness was lying in bed when he suddenly felt something grab his ankles. A strange numbness, tingling, and churning sensation crawled up through his body right up to his head. He felt paralyzed; he could not move any part of his body except for his eyes. He tried to call out to his family but could not force the words out. All of the suddenly he looked to his right and saw three or four figures wearing dark robes with hoods on their head. Their faces were very wrinkled and shiny black in color. They were only bout three to four-feet in height. The beings then communicated telepathically telling the witness not to worry that he would not be harmed. As he move his eyes and looked to the left side he noticed two other beings that looked different from the others. These two were thin, tall with black eyes and a narrow chin. They were golden yellow in color. The one closest to his head communicated telepathically, telling him not to worry. As the witness looked at the beings dark eyes he noticed a long needle like flexible crystal blue tube. The being then pointed the needle to the top left side of his head and inserted it. At that point he blacked out. When he came to he jumped out of bed and walked to the TV room where he found his dad and brother both sleeping. When woken up both seemed dazed and confused.

The witness, Jane, woke up out of a deep sleep feeling her heart pounding. She like there was someone in the room, but all she saw was a dim light in the farm corner. Then all of a sudden several hands grabbed her from around the bed. She closed her eyes and tried to scream but could not move or say anything, nothing came out of her mouth. She then found herself lying on a table and there were four little men in hoods and loose clothing standing around her. They were talking with each other, but she could not understand what they were saying since it sounded like gibberish. She could not see their hands but she felt them all around her. Their faces looked like a light blue with all wrinkles that made them look like those “wrinkled dogs”. Then all of the sudden they all just stepped aside and this man came in. He was tall and had white skin and no hair. He had large round eyes and was very slim. He came over to the table and talked to her in English. He said he was surprised that she was so scared because the last time he met her he thought he made it clear that he would return to ask a favor. He then raised his hand in gesture and a woman walked into the room. She looked very human and a little too perfect. She had a bundle in her hand and walked over to the witness. It was a baby, but it didn’t look quite human. The tall being, who was some type of well respected leader, told her that he wanted her to take the baby and care for it because they need the love of a mother and this was an emotion that they didn’t understand and weren’t capable of. She told the man that she couldn’t because she already had a child and it was hard enough raising one alone. He moved his head up and down as if agreeing with her and passed his hands across her eyes. She then blacked out and found herself in her bedroom and it was daylight.

Summary: Two women were driving back home after staying up late when they noticed a bright light over the area. The light then descended at tremendous speed and overtook their vehicle. At that point both women heard a “click” type sound. Next thing they recalled was going up a ramp into an object. Two humanoids were assisting them into the craft. As soon as they entered a white mist-like burning vapor, with a lemon flavor, enveloped them. Inside the object they met six humanoids, four men and two women. They were described as four-foot eight inches tall, with very suntanned texture skin, oriental eyes, and no hair. They all wore one-piece tight fitting dark outfits with collars. One of the women greeted the witnesses in a high singsong voice and told them that they were from the Pleiades star cluster. The object inside was white and sparkles. The witnesses were in a room with portholes and a high metal table in the middle. Both women were eventually examined on the table where various medical tests were performed. Before being released they were given several predictions on upcoming future events including a worldwide cataclysm.

Katharina Wilson was taken aboard a UFO where she saw several people including members of her own family. Several of them were then taken to a large area that appeared to be some sort of a zoo. In large glass cages, Katharina saw a variety of animals, none that she had seen before. She saw two gorillas like beings and a large cat. The hairy beings were very tall, and appeared to have been sleeping. She was surprised to see that one of the hairy beings had fallen asleep holding a newspaper. The enclosure had furniture, including a desk, chairs, and books. The cat like creature had white and orange spots and was about 3-feet tall. At another glass enclosure she saw an animal resembling a cross between a lion and a reptile, it was lying on its back apparently sleeping. No description on the abductors is mentioned.

The witness suddenly found herself outside of her home in the dark; she was paralyzed as a group of beings stood in front of her. The beings were short, hairless, white, and frail looking with huge cat-like eyes. She was carried to a nearby wooded area. The witness panicked and became hysterical. One of the beings then injected something in her left forearm. She then passed out and woke up in the morning at home. She could not recall anything else about the incident.

After a night of traveling the main witness had stopped at a truck stop to rest, there was only one other vehicle there, a French owned truck. Later a strong light and a humming sound woke him up. He looked out and the light dimmed. The French truck driver came over to his vehicle and pointed at a strange dark object on the ground from where the light had originally shone. They both walked toward the object but were prevented from getting any closer by a strange invisible barrier that felt like some type of gelatinous substance. Suddenly one side of the object became illuminated and two huge figures became visible next to the object. These were almost 3 meters tall and almost as wide. Both were identical to each other, robot-like and metallic green in color. They moved slowly sideways and in unison, a low humming sound could be heard. No other features were noted. The figures suddenly disappeared behind the dark object. The object then became luminous, lifted up and left the area at high speed.
