Location. Carta Blanca, near Cuautlapan, Yucatan, Mexico
Date: December 1996
Time: 0100A-0200A
A family of four traveling in their truck on the Ixtaczoquitlan-Cuautlapam road had arrived at a curve known as “Carta Blanca” when a very tall thin being with very long thin arms suddenly jumped from the wooded side of the road into the middle of the road. The truck had its high beams on and the witnesses were able to clearly see the humanoid, which wore a one-piece red colored coverall and moved with impressive agility. The driver immediately applied the brakes of the truck as the creature took another leap into the other side of the road and into a very deep embankment, quickly disappearing from sight.

A woman reported several very unusual occurrences, which had happened on her 20-acre property. One night she saw her husband go out through the windows, being levitated and floated out somehow. She had seen circles of light in the paddocks and found a flattened area of grass the next day. She also saw shadowy figures in the distance, with red lights behind; the figures seemed to move very quickly. One other morning she was woken up at 0300A to see red lights just above a shed, and a shadowy figure moving across the shed roof. The next day she found a dam half empty.

Two hunters & their hunting dogs were parked on Leonard Road six miles south of Bethel waiting for the right time to se their dogs loose. Soon they did and followed them into a harvested cornfield. As they approached some nearby power lines the dogs got deathly quiet that was very uncommon for that type of dog. As one of the hunters stepped into a clearing he was shocked to see a silvery saucer shaped craft with a transparent cupola sitting on the ground. Nearby stood three humanoids wearing some kind of coverall uniform. The beings were described as “Grays” short with slanted black eyes; one of them was slightly taller and had a much bigger head. As both hunters and their dogs watched the three humanoids ran to their saucer and disappeared through an open hatch, then the object rose into the air straight up and vanished.

74-year old laborer, Plinio Bragatto was on his way back home after a days work when he made a brief stop to buy some beers. He proceeded on and stopped to sit on a rock in order to drink one of the beers. He then heard a loud sound coming from behind him. Turning around he saw a large metallic oval shaped craft landing on a field close to him. The object landed on several leg-like protrusions. Once the object landed a door opened, and a sort of ladder or escalator was lowered to the ground. Then a 2 meter tall humanoid figure stepped out. The humanoid approached Bragatto and in a peculiar language that sounded like Spanish invited the witness inside the object. The witness agreed and was escorted inside. Once inside he noticed that the inside of the object had a metallic bluish sheen to it. Still speaking in the peculiar language, that the witness was somehow able to understand, the humanoid told Bragatto that they were going to take him to their “native planet.” He was given the impression that the planet was “Mars”. Inside the object there was a total of three humanoids, 2 men and a woman. Described as closely resembling humans, wearing loose fitting gray outfits, with several golden medallions hanging around their necks. According to the witness the humanoid’s hair grew from the middle of their heads back, and they had large ears and mouths, making them somewhat ugly. Before leaving, Bragatto was given a medical examination by the beings. His stomach area was probed with several needle-like instruments. On the way to the humanoid’s home planet the witness was given a fruit resembling a “Mamey” (known tropical fruit) and something resembling an empanada. He was also given a bitter beverage to taste that seemed to contain alcohol. In turn he offered the humanoids a beer, which he apparently had taken inside the craft with him. They immediately accepted. Arriving, the witness was greeted by numerous similar appearing beings. He noticed that the “planet” was beautiful in appearance and saw numerous buildings that appeared to be made of a nylon-like material. One of the beings now approached him and told him that it was time to go, that 8 hours had already passed. On his was back to the object, the witness saw a huge television screen which showed strange holographic like images, that included dinosaur like animals. The witness then asked the humanoids when were they returning to Earth, he was then told “We will return when the storms are less intense, since we have already lost five of our aircraft as a result of lighting.” Around 0400A the witness was returned to Earth, he found himself in an unfamiliar field. He then followed a nearby path and reached a village where he realized that the humanoids had dropped him off more than 800 kilometers from his hometown. He went to the police and told them what had happened. A police officer conducting an investigation found a circular ground mark at the field where Bragatto was dropped off by the humanoids.

Location. Near Itaparica Island, Bahia, Brazil
Date: December 22 1996
Time: evening
On the road leading to the Nazare salt mines an employee of the mines was driving his truck with his wife, three children and his brother in law. This stretch of road was considered a good road, in a reasonable state of conservation, but the truck reportedly catapulted mysteriously killing four of its occupants, leaving only two young girls alive to tell what happened. When the two girls had recouped they told an amazing story. According to the girls everything was going well and as they approached the stretch of road near the salt mines the driver and the passengers saw what they children curiously later described as “three dolls the height of young children” jumping up and down with open arms in the middle of the road as if desperately wanting a lift. The driver attempted to avoid the strange trio but the creatures ran in the same direction, seemingly at the same speed of the truck, blocking its passage. In a desperate act the driver of the truck attempted to coast along the embankment but the truck turned over trapping most of the victims inside. The girls do not remember seeing the strange creatures again.

The young witness was walking back home after an errand and had taken a short cut through an old churchyard. As he stepped through the gate something off to his left caught his eye. Feeling a strange sense of dread he stopped dead in his tracks. He noticed a very black figure about 3 ft high that was squatting over a grave; it was about 15 ft away in the shadows. All he could see was an outline but no details. Terrified the young witness beat a hasty retreat and went home.

Summary: Saw this website and decided to post what me and my wife saw in the night sky from Greenwich, London on the evening of 12.25.1996. Three round white lights (like small moons) in a fixed triangle configuration. They did not appear to be crafts. They turned together (around a central point between the three of them / not their own axis) one way (about half a turn clockwise) and then back again over some 6 or 7 seconds approx. The three then moved quite quickly (a second or 2) to the centre to form the one (same size) circle of white light. After a few moments it disappeared. These were not moving across the sky and were crystal clear. I do not know if there is any rational explanation for this and would welcome any input (on this website) from anybody who also saw this or knows what it was.

Summary: Shoshana Bar-on and her boyfriend Ilan Cohen were returning home from Tel Aviv by car when both spotted an orange-red disk flying over the seaside cliffs. They stopped the car and attempted to chase the object. The object then seemed to brake into three parts, one part further split into dozens of glowing plates that fell on the beach below the witnesses. Shoshana bent over the cliff and saw four small gray humanoids on the ledge below. She called over to Ilan to look but he, for some strange reason could not see them. She stood up and saw a nine foot long, clam shaped craft appear opposite to her. The opt of the object opened up and she saw four entities, three in a row and a pilot sitting forward, they were all seated in tight, tiny chairs, that had several button like controls. One of the entities floated vertically from the craft and stunned Shoshana with “white projector like beams coming from his eyes.” The being approached her and rubbed her arms & neck with a stubby, soft hand. She later recalled that his touch felt good. She screamed, but Ilan could not hear her. She then collapsed to the ground. Ilan managed to drag her away from the site but in a voice “that was not hers” she insisted in being taken back. He pulled her to the side of the road where he flagged down a car that drove them to a nearby hospital. Numerous other phenomena occurred in the witness apartment the following days.
