The witness was sleeping in his bed when he suddenly awoke to some kind of movement at the edge of his bed, by his feet. Suddenly as if coming out of the floor, a dark shape arose and stood staring at him. He was not able to move but could now distinguish the shape to be that of a short dark skinned female, with long black curly hair, sleek human facial features, about 22 to 25 years of age, she appeared to be friendly. The witness could only see her torso. She maintained a telepathic control of the witness, as he seemed to examine and massage his feet. After a few minutes the witness hears a loud whistling noise and the figure disappears. The next morning he woke up to find his feet bloody and scarred but without any pain. The feet appeared to be covered in small cuts. On April 14 the witness saw a bright yellow-white spherical object flying over his balcony in the rear of the house.

Emma Wilson heard noises coming from the horse barn and went to investigate. In a field near the barn black hairy creature confronted her about 4 ft tall, with a crest-like protrusion on top of its head resembling that of a rooster. The creature emitted some strange noises but at no time attempted to attack Mrs. Wilson. Before it vanished into the darkness something long and sharp came out of its mouth several times. Mrs. Wilson found a dead horse and several dead rabbits they all appeared to have been drained of blood. Strange tracks were also found in the barn area.

The partially decomposed body was reported as being less than four-feet tall and having a larger than human head.

Summary: During a flight from Boston to Amsterdam a strange point of light could be seen for almost the whole flight. When flying from Boston to Amsterdam on a Northwest DC-10, my girlfriend and I noticed a strange light off to the lower port side of the airplane at a distance of about 2 to 3 miles. At first I thought that the light could be a reflection from one of the navigation lights of the DC-10. After watching the light for about an hour we decided that that wasn’t the case. It would change position and color. We could simply tell that it was some sort of object. After a while, we would just take a look out the window every 20 minuets or so. Every time we looked out it was still out there. At one point we asked another passenger and a steward to take a look and they were amazed as well. The light disappeared when we started to overfly some shipping, probably about 200 miles from Ireland. After the flight we joked about the “UFO” that we saw, but we were still left with an unsettling feeling. I am a private pilot and I have seen nav light reflections and air traffic at night, this light was not even similar.

Rafael Moreno was on guard duty at his ranch, waiting for the blood predator or “Chupacabra.” He fired at a creature and injured it for the second time, and for the second time, it escaped to the Everglades. According to Moreno, the animal was at the edge of a lake. In the darkness its eyes shone like two flashlights that reflected in the lake. He fired at it several times. “I know I hit it at least one time, because I heard a shriek,” Moreno said.

Two police officers were conducting their nightly rounds on the outskirts of town when a powerful light crossed in front of them on the highway. One of the men felt mesmerized by the brilliant outburst of light, while his companion tried to keep hold of the squad car’s steering wheel. The mesmerized officer told his companion that he felt the odd sensation of being pushed upward at the same time that he saw two pairs of moist, black oval shaped eyes staring at him from large pear shaped heads. The police officer had not yet been able to digest the uncanny experience when the bizarre light staged a return. According to the agents, nine lights, identical to the first, appeared out of nowhere, and were then joined by three more which came from across the Portuguese border. The twelve lights were elongated and had an intensely yellow glow. The lights remained suspended some 100 feet above the highway, prompting the police officers to flee the scene in terror.

Summary: Five hours plus interaction with an “invisible entity”. Four persons directly in contact. Two peripheral witnesses. Numerous physical traces left behind. Injuries to three participants. Huge Orange light observed over property. THIS IS NOT A UFO SIGHTING Nil ufo seen by four main participants. Three of the party are business people, one is a housewife. I am an ex Police Officer and currently own my own business. I employ approx. 25 staff, am a designer and work with extreme detail. The incident involved an interaction with an ” invisible electrical entity” over a period of approx. 5 hours that we are aware of and possibly longer. Four tangible hard artifacts remain, many other less tangible items are also involved. Injuries to three members of the party include symptoms similar to slight radiation poisoning, burns and scarring, massive headaches, personality changes, massive tinnitus to three witnesses which commenced spontaneously and at the same approx. time. All attempts to investigate the incident have come to a dead-end in Australia. This includes approaches to the Services, C.S.I.R.O, academia generally and to many of the local UFO and Paranormal Organisations. I would appreciate any assistance forthcoming from the U.S.A. or any other reputable source to allow me to continue my investigations.

Summary: A 58-year old retired police officer and his wife arrived home together. On entering their house he detected a strong smell of sulfur. On investigation he found nothing visibly out of the usual. His wife went to the main bedroom and put on the lights in the hallway and in the bedroom. She then walked back along the hallway to the living room end of the house. He then walked along the hallway towards the bedroom and as he neared the end of the hallway where Jenny (his wife) had just passed, he walked into an area of extreme cold, which, as he touched it, discharged a strong electrical current, which caused him to reel backwards. He retreated back to the entry to the hall and he was filled with a feeling of revulsion and fear. He quickly recovered and Jenny then walked along the hall and suffered a similar experience. He tried again to walk along the hall and again suffered a similar electrical discharge. The witness and his wife discussed the situation for a while and tried several times to move past it along the hall, each time with the same result. During this period the object remained stationary at the southern end of the hallway. Their toy poodle was very much aware that something was wrong and he noticed that when he looked along the hall the guanine at the back of his eyes reflected a bright orange color instead of the usual bright green. The presence of the object could be determined by the feeling of an electrical discharge similar to static electricity though very strong and goose bumps appeared on the skin. Within the object it was extremely cold and quite painful. Upon direct contact one was drained of all energy for a short period and normal breathing was difficult. Later at 2030 their son Adrian and his then partner, Petra, arrived and he was invited to walk along the hallway. As he entered the hall he encountered the same discharge effect. The entity had moved eight meters and was in the northern end of the hall by this time. Petra, who was eight and a half months pregnant, encountered the object and was seemingly brushed or slapped aside but not hurt by it. Over the ensuing period all four of them had several direct contacts with the entity as it moved with apparent purpose throughout the house. Petra’s contacts were much less vigorous than those of the other three witnesses. At 2130 Adrian was ejected from a chair by the entity. Jenny had a severe accidental direct contact with the entity and was caught for a moment within it. She was visibly affected, breathing labored, elevated pulse rate, weakness and disorientation. External check of the premises revealed a column of warm air at the southern end of the house but nothing else unusual. During this period there was no discernible traffic or other sounds within or around the house. Adrian had another hard encounter with the entity. Adrian and Petra returned to their home. At 2330 a ball of light energy crossed within the screen of a television set. An independent witness testified to seeing a huge orange light suspended above the house at the same time, 0020A. A neighbor reported that her house shook and trembled for a period. The telemetry from the water storage reservoir across the road crashed and then, impossibly, restored itself. Loud clicks in a cadence of three and groups of three were heard several times throughout the house. Later some of the witnesses developed symptoms similar to a form of radiation sickness with severe headaches and flu like symptoms, sore eyes and joints, etc. Three developed chronic and permanent tinnitus. The main witness developed a brown-pigmented stain on both legs and a circular mark on the top of his left foot. Several rocks in the garden were discovered to have been affected by some form of energy, one having exploded into a fine powder. A candle had been selectively melted and the stearic acid component separated and crystallized. Moss on the concrete path showed burns marks. Two small sections of the path appeared to have been melted or glazed. Presently two of the witnesses have developed substantial psychic abilities.

The creature turned to look at her and she could see large glowing red eyes. She approached the creature with her car and this one suddenly flew up into the air and vanished.

Elaine woke up in the middle of the night to see a troll-like entity at the right hand foot of her bed. Only his chest and above was visible due to the height of the bed. He was wearing a dark hooded robe, resembling that of a monk. She began pulling the covers up over her head, but then decided to stare at the entity. The entity began floating towards her and reached her face level. The color of his face appeared brown and his skin was rough looking and wrinkly, like an elephants. He had a heavy protruding brow that placed his large dark eyes in shadow. He had wrinkly eyelids and a flattened spread nose. As the witness stared at the entity she felt him to be loving and gentle. After a few seconds it floated through the internal wall of the house and disappeared.

Summary: I can’t remember it fully, as I was six at the time. All I can remember is that I was at my friends house, and my elder brother came to get me because it was time to be getting back home. As we were walking down the lane home, we both looked up at the stars to see how clear the sky was that night, and we saw a bright light. It suddenly started moving at a considerable speed around the sky making a sort of, pattern leaving a trail. After about three or so seconds doing this it disappeared.
