Summary: On interstate 93 a highway crew supervisor was returning home to prepare for a predicted storm when he spotted a silvery object quickly descending overhead. The object hovered over the overpass and as he drove by he was able to see several figures inside the object looking out from behind a row of windows in the bottom. Later under hypnosis he was able to recall his vehicle being levitated into the object through a large opening in the bottom of the craft. He was then removed from his truck by three short beings, described as bald with gray skin and wearing silver colored uniforms with patterns traced in gold on their collars. He was taken to another room where he was given a very painful medical examination. No effort was made on the part of the beings to keep him comfortable.

Summary: The witnesses encountered huge footprints in the woods about 20 inches long and found some tree branches broken down. Walking back to the house they felt like they were being watched. The next morning one of the witnesses woke up to see a huge 10-foot tall creature standing about 20 feet from the house. The creature wandered about for a while. It was brown in color and looked very human except for its size and forehead and its hairy appearance. After about five minutes it walked past the house and up a nearby bank. As it passed the house it banged on the wall, awakening the other witnesses.

Time: night
A husband and wife suddenly felt compelled to go to a late night movie show. After the show they drove around somehow unable to find their way back home. Every road seemed to be blocked by some kind of construction. After what had appeared to be hours they finally made it home. Something in their memories appeared to have been blocked. Years later under hypnosis they remembered being in a church’s parking lot and seeing a disc shaped object hovering nearby. Several short, now familiar gray type creatures came up to their car and took the wife inside the object where she was, somewhat painfully examined, and then returned to the car. Later it was realized that she had somehow been cured of a previously diagnosed blood clotting disease in her circulatory system.

Len Mawson and Don Mulak were camping in the area and had set up their sleeping bags inside their “Combi Van” next to a roaring campfire, while talking, Len happened to noticed, at about 200 meters away, standing in the middle of the reserve, the definite silhouette of a whitish man-shaped form over 2 meters in height, the head giving the appearance of being pushed into the shoulders, with legs apart and arms out from the body. By this time Don had retired to the van. Len tried to attract his attention to the mystery figure, but he refused to get out and look. As Len moved to the van, the “visitor” turned and walked away behind a nearby concrete water tank, where Len lost sight of it. From there he believes it must have walked straight into the adjoining pine forest. No traces were found the next morning

The 22-year old witness had fallen asleep when he was suddenly awakened by 3 individuals that said they were aliens. He asked them what they were doing in his bedroom and they told him that they had been in the attic and needed to go outside and asked if he could open the window for them. (!). In the morning he woke up and his window and screen were wide open and the attic entrance was wide open also (a ladder was needed to access the attic; however there wasn’t a ladder around). Two of the “men” looked human and the third also looked human but with something alien about his overall appearance that the witness could not pinpoint. They were all about 5ft tall. No other information.

Time: unknown
Dean Fagerstrom (involved in other encounters) met an angel-like being, very old and powerful. The being told Dean that his name was Aphax and that he was once a priest in ancient Thebes. Dean was then taken out of his body and brought to ancient Egypt, where he saw a magnificent stone building. He approached the building and saw a small opening, and looked into it. He could see a sarcophagus laid out on a table; the profile on the lid was of a person unknown to him. As he watched, the sarcophagus disappeared and was replaced by the image of his father. He continued to watch, and saw his father’s image disappear and he himself lying on the table. Apparently Aphax had now turned into a stone statue and seemed to be part of the wall. At that moment, numbers and equations started pouring into Dean’s head. Aphax instructed him to resurrect a lost numerical code that would explain events in the universe that have taken place in the past, are taking place in the present, and will take place in the future.

Date: January 8 1989
Location:  Near Gancedo Argentina
Time: 0445A
Summary: Three persons traveling enroute to a nearby town began noticing three small points of light high in the sky, that suddenly began approaching their small Renault. As the lights approached their large circular form was clearly seen. All three objects then began pacing the vehicle on the left side of the road. At times the objects would suddenly descend very close to the ground then would shoot back up. At one point the witnesses saw an illuminated “screen” on a platform on the side of the road, at the same moment one of the objects performed a gentle turn and passed directly in front of the vehicle illuminating the inside of the car. The witnesses could now see that it was a huge disc with an illuminated dome on top. As the object descended over the road everything became bright and the witnesses were clearly able to see the tops of nearby trees bend down as if hit by a strong wind. Also about the same time another luminous platform was seen on the side of the road and a human-like figure was clearly seen moving within the light near a large barrel-shaped object that was apparently on the ground. That was the last thing seen by the witnesses as they drove away from the area.

Summary: Marcia Hill, a 12-year old girl was spending an evening together with her friend in her home. Her parents had gone out. The girls were watching television when suddenly there appeared to be a very bad reception with black lines moving across the screen (the reception was always excellent in the area). The weather was clear and from the corner of her eye she noticed the amber lamps flickering. Marcia went into the bedroom from where she could see the well-lit garden. She was then drawn to look into the center of the garden where she saw a figure crouching there, which appeared to be white, and had very long fingers. With these fingers, it appeared to Marcia to be stroking the grass and she described it as being in a fetal position on the grass. It did not appear to have a face. She did not feel scared and was drawn to watch it for what seemed to her at least 10minutes. She turned to call her friend to come and see this figure, but when she turned back it had gone. Upon returning downstairs the television was now working and the lights were no longer flickering.
