Summary: On two occasions a group of men driving a pick-up truck on an isolated road near their ranch, spotted a small green colored humanoid figure that had the ability to float in mid-air, and hover over the roadway in front of the approaching vehicle. The driver of the vehicle attempted to chase the entity, but it was unable to come near it, as the small figure flew away at incredible speed.

Location: Monte Carmelo, Vieques Island Puerto Rico
Time: 0400A
Summary: Several youngsters returning home in a residential area observed a huge bright light quickly approaching in their direction. To the five witnesses it looked like the “sky had just opened.” As the object descended they could see that it was a domed disc shaped craft encased in a reddish foggy glow. It was emitting bright flashes of light and a high frequency humming sound. The craft also had a dome on its bottom and in the center area multi-colored lights rotated. Suddenly the craft divided itself in two and one section flew off towards the nearby Island of Culebra, while the other larger section remained and tilted to one side and flew off towards the west. Before it left, it hovered 300 feet away from the house of two adult witnesses, Carmelo Felix and his wife Maria, that were able to see the upper transparent cupola and inside of it they could see multi-colored flashes of light, plus what appeared to be the constant movement of a shadowy figure

Summary: The witness (involved in other encounters) woke during the night and saw a small being scamper away from her, across her husband and to the foot of the bed without movement from the mattress. The creature moved to the floor and joined at least three other creatures that huddled against the wall on her husband’s side of the bed, watching her. The woman could not move or speak, just observe the beings by the illumination from the VCR light. The humanoid creatures were five ft tall, with skinny limbs, gray skin, small mouths, large eyes, a reverse teardrop shaped head, and a face also shaped like a teardrop. The odd part of the story was their dress black Panama hats and dark cloaks. She noticed neither smell nor sound during the experience. The apparently fell asleep again. In the morning her husband was ignorant of the incident, but the couple found orange-brown stains on the bedroom carpet and a sheet. A burn the shape of a commando dagger blade was preserved.

Madeline Tolentino was driving with her 2-year-old son in her Isuzu Trooper, with the windows rolled down. They were on Route 185 near a horse track called El Comandante when she suddenly smelled something pungent, like sulfur, which irritated her throat. She kept driving and suddenly saw a creature with bright red eyes or emitting a red light or beam from its eyes. It ran across the road in front of the car and disappeared. Very frightened she returned home to tell her husband who came to the area but only smelled the strong odor and did not see the creature.

Summary: I was a taxi driver back in 1996, and i had just dropped passengers off it was very quiet no one on the road i was proceeding down the dual carriage way back to taxi base. I was smoking a cigarette at the time,and it was when i went to flick the ash out the window that something caught my eye above the airfield. It was a bright light shaped like a upside down diamond glowing like a larva lamp between purple and white, I thought i might be seeing things so i wound down my window to be sure it wasn’t a reflection on the glass, I observed it for about 30 seconds then it took of at very high speed in the direction over Bulwell Nottingham it left a red/orange tracer mark as it sped off.

Location. Near Tres Coracoes, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Time: 0800A
Traveling north on the heavily traveled Fernao Dias highway 35-year old Carlos da Souza suddenly heard a muffled roaring sound, and he wondered if something was wrong with the truck. He stopped to check, but when he stepped down from the cab he realized the noise was coming from a cigar-shaped craft about 400 ft in the air just west of the highway. It was silver colored, reflecting the sun, and appeared to be 30 to 40 ft long and 12 to 15 ft wide. It had at least four windows along the side and what looked like a big jagged hole four or five feet in diameter in the front. There was a long dent or crack running from the hole back to the middle of the craft, from which point white smoke or vapor was coming out. The craft was traveling north, almost parallel to the highway, at about 40 to 50 miles an hour. Astonished, Da Souza jumped in his pickup and followed the UFO for about 10 miles. It soon crossed over to the east side of the highway and eventually passed over some small mountains. Then it went into a 30-degree dive and disappeared from sight. Da Souza was afraid it had crashed and desperately searched for a way to get to the area. After 20 minutes or so, he found a dirt side road and turned onto it. A few minutes later he drove over the crest of a hill and there before him was wreckage spread all over a hilly field of knee-high grass. He also saw about 40 soldiers and two male nurses, two trucks, a helicopter, an ambulance and three cars—all Army vehicles. Everyone was busily running around picking up pieces of debris. One truck already held a chunk half the size of a mini-van. A strong smell of ammonia and ether hung in the air. It was a terrible crash and Da Souza doubted that anyone had lived through it. He was surprised to see anyone there, let alone the military. He didn’t know at the time that the site was only seven miles from the ESA Army base in Tres Coracoes. He parked and walked toward the wreckage, thinking he could help. He picked up a piece of aluminum-like material that was very light. It floated to the ground when he dropped it. Then one of the men spotted him, shouted, and in an instant, armed soldiers rushed toward him, ordering him to leave immediately. He protested, thinking someone had been badly hurt or killed, but a corporal screamed at him to get out. Da Souza was so astounded by what he’d seen that he abandoned his trip and headed back toward Sao Paulo. About 10 minutes later he stopped at a roadside restaurant to have coffee and think about what had happened. He was sitting there two hours later when a car drove up with two men in civilian clothes, but military haircuts and bearing. One got out and walked up to him, asked if his name was Carlos da Souza, then asked what he’d seen. He was then warned not to say anything to anybody and threatened, the men then left. (This occurred one week before the incidents in Varginha).

Time: 0230A
The witness was lying in bed with his head opposite to the window when he began to see lights reflecting/flashing on the wall. They resembled ambulance and fire truck lights. He looked out the window and could not see anything out of the ordinary. He climbed back into bed and later began hearing odd little noises resembling muffled voices or whispers, which were unintelligible; he also heard noises coming from the backdoor. Soon an uneasy feeling came over him as if there was someone else in the room. He looked up and saw a figure that stood not much taller than his waterbed. At the very most the figure was about 3ft tall. It was staring directly at him. Because of the darkness he could no see any other details. Panicking, he suddenly was unable to move. He has no other memories of the incident.

Summary:  Hildo Lucio Galindo opened his bathroom window to see a creature with oily dark brown skin crouched in a nearby alleyway. It had very small hands with three extremely long fingers, ran away when Hildo cried out. The creature had no hair or clothing and was about 4-5 feet tall. Later several calls came into the local fire department about some “wild animal” on the loose in the northern area of the park. When the fire department arrived they found the military already on scene. According to other witnesses some children had thrown stones at a strange creature that emitted a soft buzzing sound like a bee. This creature was apparently captured by the military and put in a wooden box with a white plastic canvas cover and transported away by an army truck. Around the same time local residents heard three shots and saw soldiers come out of the woods carrying two campaign sacks. One motionless, the other moving. Sources revealed that the soldiers had shot a creature on the chest and it had died instantly. Others saw army trucks near the woods and others saw two F-5 aircraft moving at a low altitude over the area. It was reported that a total of 8 creatures were captured at the time. 1 dead, 2 injured, and 5 unhurt and living. Earlier that same day, around 0130A two farm workers in the same general area had spotted a group of agitated animals running away from a location, upon closer investigation they saw a gray metallic submarine shaped craft that appeared to be trembling like a curtain and emitting smoke or fog as it descended to at least 5 meters above the ground. Military witnesses later admitted that it had crashed.

Summary:  Three girls were walking past a plot of land when they spotted a bizarre looking creature, described as man like but only about 80 cm tall. It had brown skin, bulging red eyes, bulging veins, enormous feet, and three protruding lumps on its head. The being was apparently unclothed and its body seemed covered with oil. The girls panicked and ran away from the area to obtained additional witnesses. Soon units of the local fire department arrived and apparently took the creature into custody. Apparently a similar creature had been captured earlier. The creature emitted a strange buzzing like sound. Others saw strange cigar shaped objects flying low over a field. Later the military apparently took the creature to the nearby city of Campinas.

Time:  0800A
Summary:  At a remote mountain village several Quechua Indian shepherds tending their flocks watched six objects flying over the area. According to a witness, Silvia Bedoya, 40, the objects apparently emerged from nearby Lake Cococha. The objects formed what seemed a protective circle around a larger mother-ship type object. The flight of the objects illuminated the whole valley in an eerie deep purple type of light. The “mother ship” landed upriver from the village. Soon two occupants emerged from the object. These were described as 3 feet, 3 inches tall, with large oversized heads, long spindly arms and short bandy legs. They wore gunmetal gray helmets and matching one-piece coveralls. The humanoids took out transparent containers and, ignoring the shepherds, collected many samples, like soil, grass, mountain weeds, & water from the nearby river. Soon the humanoids entered the large object and all the objects shot away into space @ high speed.

Summary:  The main witness, a member of a rock band, was sitting around with some friends after a performance when suddenly he apparently blacked out, his next memory was of waking up mid-afternoon, two days later. His friends apparently blacked out for only 10 minutes, they woke up and could not find him. He noticed he now had a scar on the right forearm and the fingers on his right hand were no longer as agile as they once were. He also found scars in his chest, neck, and legs. He also had vague memories of human-like beings sticking huge needles into him, drawing out fluids and of being cut up and sewn back together again. When he came to, 2 days later he was lying down naked on the porch.
