Date: Summer 1996
Location: Sablino, near St. Petersburg, Russia
Time: daytime
Summary: Two men, Vladimir and Sergey had gone into the popular Sablino caves out of curiosity. They went through the entrance and went along for about 50 meters lighting their way with a flashlight. Suddenly the flashlight died and fell from Sergey’s hands. When he found it he could not switch it on again. Suddenly Sergey noticed Vladimir apparently moving away and yelled at him asking why he had move but Vladimir swore he had not moved. His voice sounded as if coming out of a vacuum and was echoing. Suddenly something flashed and they both heard a low trembling humming sound. Vladimir sensed slipping down and landing on a heap of sand. The humming sound stopped and it was dark all around, but there was a faint glimmering distant light. Vladimir rushed in the direction of the light and finally left the cave. He was stunned to find himself among strange new environment outside, the area appeared unknown to him and completely different. There was a silver building nearby with huge mirror-like windows and a parabolic antenna on top. At this point Vladimir saw several people in white overalls running in the direction of a footbridge stretched towards the entryway to the cave. When Vladimir looked down he saw dark cables stretching deep into the cave. The strange people were frantically signaling to him with their hands that he must go back the same way he came. Suddenly a loud whistle sounded from within the cave. Thinking that he had unwittingly walked into some type of experiment Vladimir rushed back into the cave saw it covered in a pulsating bluish light, at that very moment he felt his body floating upwards. He could hear the loud whistle from all around him, he then heard Sergey’s voice from somewhere above him and stretched his hand towards it, he then lost consciousness. He woke up again inside the cave and saw his friend standing nearby. The ground around Vladimir still felt warm. The men then left the caves and came to the conclusion that Vladimir somehow slipped into another parallel world.

Location: Hydropark Island on the Dnepr River, Kiev, Ukraine
Time: daytime
Summary: On Sunday a local man named Pyetr Tsegelnyi decided to take a walk on Hydropark Island on the River Dnepr. As he walked towards one of the lakes on the island not far from the path, he seemed to be alone in the brushwood. Suddenly he seemed to trip and stumble over a hole on the ground. Suddenly the surrounding landscape had vanished; Pyetr felt a sense of well being as his thoughts seemed to be clear. He found himself standing on a long white narrow road, made out of what appeared to be polished tiles. To his right was a beautiful dome shaped structure with large rhomb-shaped windows. On his left everything appeared to be shrouded in a cloudy mist or fog and he could see nothing through it. Suddenly a medium sized human-like figure wearing a white shirt and trousers appeared from within the mist. Pyetr was apparently unnoticed. Soon two more similar figures appeared out of the mist. The pair walked directly towards Pyetr apparently not noticing or seeing him. As the figures were almost upon him Pyetr attempted to move to one side but did not succeed as the two figures, a man and a woman, walked right through him (!), and apparently without any visible effects both figures continued on their way towards the strange dome-shaped building. Confused, Pyetr took several more steps along the strange road and was suddenly enveloped by a dense fog, using pure instinct he attempted to swat the fog away but suddenly found himself among the bushes in Hydropark Island, not far from the lake. Later Pyetr along with his brother returned to the site and searched the area but failed to find anything suspicious or out of place. Several local UFO researchers in Kiev suspect that this area is some kind of doorway or portal into another dimensional continuum.

18-year-old Norberto Perez was at his aunt’s house for a family reunion when he began experiencing a strong headache and stomach discomfort. He then became very sleepy and decided to go to bed. At the moment that he closed his eyes he found himself in a strange metallic room on a cot-like bed, unable to move. Standing around him were four 4-foot tall humanoids, very thin and wearing tight fitting gold-colored outfits and gold sandals. They had long six fingered hands. Soon a door suddenly appeared in the metallic wall and a tall figure entered the room. This figure was described a man-like, very good looking, with white skin, and blond hair. He was surrounded by a bright light and wore a white long tunic up to his ankles, with silvery sandals. The witness noticed that the man wore a gold colored ring with the image of a pyramid imprinted on it. The tall blond male then approached him and one of the short humanoids handed him a transparent sphere that contained an electronic chip-like device. The sphere was placed over Perez’s forehead, and it floated, then it floated over different parts of his body then it vanished. At that moment the blond man approached him and apparently began communicating by using telepathy since he did not move his lips. He told the witness not to fear. The witness then asked why he was chosen and was told because “he had been born with a special type of energy.” Soon the witness was able to move and he was taken into another room that seemed to be the control center. There he saw three of the short humanoids operating some consoles. Suddenly a huge screen became visible where he saw all the planets align. Then he saw the planet Earth but it appeared to be upside down. Then he saw something resembling a nuclear blast and much death and destruction. He was then warned that humanity was headed in that direction if we did not mend our ways. Another door now became visible and the witness noticed what appeared to be dozens of domed disc-shaped objects, apparently in a huge hangar. The tall blonde-haired person noticed the witness looking at the objects then preceded to touch his forehead with a finger. At that moment the witness found himself back in bed. For three hours afterwards he was in a state of mental confusion.

The 14-year old witness was on his way to the local bus stop when two rather large men wearing large dark “raincoats” that almost touched the ground confronted him. They also wore large dark sunglasses and hats, both were in identical clothing. As the witness looked at the strangers they seemed to attempt to conceal themselves. The witness felt a sense of wisdom and kindness emanating from the men. This feeling lasted for about 5 seconds. The figures then disappeared quickly into the crowd. The witness has been involved in several UFO sightings.

Date: Summer 1996
Time: afternoon
A family of four was driving on their way to Tocopilla but halfway there, the father, (driver) changed his mind and decided to return, explaining that by the time they arrived to Tocopilla everything would be closed. On their way he took a secondary road that past by an empty airfield, located in an isolated plain. As they drove near the airfield they all noticed a strange triangular-shaped mark on the ground, however they did not stop to investigate. Soon they began hearing bizarre screams resembling those of a woman being attacked or “raped”. Immediately after that they all saw a brilliant humanoid figure at least 3 meters in height, it shone like brilliant metal. Its face was oval-shaped and its eyes almond in shape emitting a brilliant light. Astounded the witnesses watched as the shiny giant creature stepped in front of their car and signaled them to stop. The mother began screaming as the creature turned its head towards them and emitted a brilliant beam of bluish light from each eye. The whole time the driver slowed the vehicle down until it was going a minimal speed. They were able to notice that the creature had extremely long arms; it was of thin build, and was wearing a one-piece shiny silvery outfit. It was totally hairless. As the mother screamed hysterically the creature disappeared in plain sight and everything returned to normal. The witnesses quickly drove away from the area.

The witness has a conscious memory of standing in front of a 7-8 foot tall-cloaked figure with a light ball hovering over its shoulder. The witness also noticed a blue light coming in through the window. Suddenly a short gray figure with a huge head rushed towards the witness at very high speed. As soon as it reached him, he became paralyzed and blinded. His next conscious memory was of lying on his back, still unable to see and paralyzed, and rushing through the air at an amazing speed. The witness does not recall anything else.

Location. Ayu Dag Mountain (Bear Mountain), Crimea, Ukraine
Date: Summer 1996
Time: night
Three people, Natalya Gracheva a reporter for the “Crimean Times” and two men, Anatoly and Alexander had gone by boat near the remote hamlet of Partenit and camped near the front section of Ayu Dag, near the high rocky precipices directly above the water. This location was usually used to bake in the sun and to skinny dip. At night while they rested near a lone tree Natalya sensed a strange feeling of worry. She noticed how the air seemed to condense near the water surface, like a cloak of some kind, and strange shadows were crossing the moon. Suddenly Alexander screamed, asking her if she was OK since he could not move, the next moment a bright white light blinded them. Now Natalya was also completely paralyzed. Anatoly, who was closer to the water also screamed. The only thing that Natalya could see was a blinding white light. She lost consciousness and awoke only in the morning. Anatoly was now quite able to move and told a strange story of encountering alien beings (not described). The whole contact lasted about 15 minutes, the aliens apparently communicated by using telepathy and seemed to know everything about him. He asked them for “adequate knowledge” and as he stated, an “abyss” of knowledge, normally inaccessible to humans, was opened before him. He also stated that the aliens cured him from his varicose veins, a fact that was confirmed by Natalya.

In rural Apache County several people were staying at a rural home near Concho and were sitting around the kitchen table when one of the men looked out the kitchen table and saw along with another woman a bright UFO streak by, apparently crashing. The witnesses said that the object left a wake of fire. They jumped into a jeep raced off in search for the crashed object. They crossed State Highway 61 and drove along an old cattle trail and soon came upon an elderly couple that had parked their white van on the side of the road, both were outside staring into the fields. They asked the witnesses if they had seen a UFO crash and they told them they were going to try to find them. The elderly couple had been driving westerly along Highway 61 toward Show Low when they saw the object streak by and appear to crash. The witnesses then drove to the area where the object had apparently crashed. This area had few trees, some scattered cedar and junipers and a lot of rock and canyons. After about an hour of driving they arrived at a very deep canyon and could drive no further. Deep in this canyon was the crashed UFO. It was an oblong, egg shape object. The color was strange—it was the color of Caucasian skin with a fading tan and it faintly glowed. The glow was sufficiently enough to illuminate the bottom of the canyon. There were two “pillars” (for lack of a better word) at the front of the object. These pillars may have been posted on either side of a door—although a doorway was not visible. It was about the size of a barn. Oddly the witnesses also saw a helicopter on the scene and a black pick up. They were baffled as to how the truck could have gotten down the remote canyon so quickly, unless there was some road that they did know about. They watched the scene for a while then left. Apparently none of the witnesses ever returned to the site of the alleged crash.

Summary:  It was the night of the Queens birthday celebrations. I had just gone with my friend and her daughter who lives next door to say goodnight. earlier in the evening the electricity had gone off in our street for about an hour. On coming out of her house I looked up in the sky to the south and noticed two motionless dark, almost black triangular objects. The sky was a bit hazy and the objects were darker than the background. They seemed quite large, maybe 50-60ft across, and hovered about 200ft up in the air. They had no other discernible features, did not make any noise, and they were side by side (about 30ft between them and maintained that distance.I called out to my friend to come and look. She and her daughter came to see them as well. I then ran into my house to get my son who just had time to see them before they took off at incredible speed and strait up, away from the earth. As they got higher they got closer together before becoming pinpoints of light in the night sky.I thought they may be stealth bombers but questioned this when I saw how fast they took , they seemed to defy gravity.

The witness, Alfredo, who had previously had an encounter in 1995, felt an urge to travel to this location and accompanied by his parents and another couple they arrived at the summer home of the latter. Soon Alfredo felt that it was time for the “contact”. Closely followed by his parents he began following a path through a field, they were also being watched by one of the witnesses using a pair of binoculars. As they approached a hilly area, Alfredo suddenly was lost from sight. His worried parents yelled out for him and searched around but failed to locate him. The witness with the binoculars did not see Alfredo depart in any direction. His parents then decided to walk back to the house. Meanwhile back at the house the other witness suddenly saw Alfredo in her backyard, standing there smiling at her. Curious she asked him how he got there so quickly, he replied that he jumped the chicken wire fence. His parents were stunned when they arrived 20 minutes later, to see him there having lunch. They noticed that he did not appeared tired at all and his eyes were a little red. While eating lunch he told those present that he had been levitated up in a tube of light into a metallic sterile environment. There he was met by several short beings (not described) that conversed with him telling the reason for him being chosen.

Location: Cebu Philippines
Time: 20:00
Summary: This is an experience I would not like to share but since I found this website, I might eventually encourage other people with similar experiences. This phenomenon did not only happen once but twice in a one week interval and both have witnesses. It has been 8 years and the memories are still very vivid and unfortunately I am the only witness to publish this material – I do not currently live in the Philippines anymore and the whereabouts of the other witnesses is not of my knowledge. It started in a humid summer night in Cebu,Philippines in Mandaue. As usual, me and my mates(we were of varying ages: 17,16 to 10) hang out in my friend’s topless jeep and share jokes or whatever. Suddenly at around 8PM, my friend alerted us to a red light up in the sky moving(right to left) from east to west, and we(about 8 of us) spotted the single red light and unexpectedly another red light popped out in the east following the first and another until it completed into four red lights trailing each other that moved quite fast from east to westward manner. The distance between these four red lights were very uniform in a straight line(east to west) and suddenly all four halted in mid air(12o’clock in front of us, about 50 degrees above our sky view, their height might be around a normal cloud height). After halting, the four red lights “waited” for a few seconds and the fourth red light(from the right) moved clockwise around the other remaining 3 and climbed up to sky about 10o’clock position above the remaining 3 and is about a few miles up the sky(estimated) and stayed there – while the fourth red light was maneuvering, the second red light moved counterclockwise around the remaining 2 and moved slowly to the east and “played” around in the sky(easterly) for a few minutes and decided to go “high speed” up the sky into nowhere like the ones you see on starwars. The first red light(from the left) while the fourth and the second red lights were manouvering, just went “high speed” up the sky into nowhere, again. The third red light(which was the brightest of all 3) remained still without any “visible” movement. The fourth red light remained in its position until it was covered with clouds. All this happened in about 30minutes.
At that moment, there were 2 adult witnesses which makes it 10, and I called my parents and saw it in disbelief and concluded that it was just a “satellite” – I said to them, “Doing those ridiculous moves, no way” I know how satellites move, I have observed them very well, but not this one. The third light remained until 9:30PM and did that “high speed” thingy up into nowhere. These red lights were quite bright and vivid up, like LED(light emitting diodes) up in the sky, but not so bright or so intense. After that incident, the following week, which was Wednesday(I could still remember) at 8PM as well, me and a friend of mine were having a chat at the back of a pick up truck. I innocently gazed into the patchy cloudy night sky and thought of nothing and the second time I gazed on the exact position I gazed before, there, the intense third red light(which I recognized) was there along with the passing clouds, as if looking at me. I called upon my other friends(about 3) and saw it too. We were excited and both fearing why it showed up again as if it’s intention was only meant for us – I could feel it. A passing cloud covered the red light and by the time the cloud was gone(about 10 seconds past) the red light was in no sight. That was the last of it. We speculated the possibilities of what the red lights might be, and a lot of them have been junked:

1. not an airplane, surely it wasn’t, not even helicopters(no noise) and moves too fast “upwards”.

2. not a kite with a very bright red lamp, why: a. the intervals of all four were seemingly uniform moving from left to right, east to west, not to mention how it stopped abruptly in mid air like there is a pause button somewhere.

b. the level of brightness in that height would require a huge battery and a reasonably huge lamp, as big as a car’s red lamp, which require at least a 6 volt(very heavy battery) – not even a 3metre kite can carry it. An LED can’t produce that level of brightness at that distance.

c. a kite in a night sky is not very steady, wind pressure is weak. These red lights were as still as you can imagine.

3. not a satellite, too bright, and the movements are very complex.

Whatever it was, I only wished I had caught it in video with a steady tripod, it would had astonished the whole world who owns a TV. I might email a sketch of how it moved in the sky and its arrangements.

Summary: Young man was driving on East Business Route, I-80, in Sacramento. He noticed an object, which at first looked like a conventional aircraft, but it had four white lights. He could not see any shape to the object, even though it was moving toward the observers, and a bit to the right. The object looked like it was in a landing mode, very low, but there is no airport in that area. The object then rolled to one side, and suddenly they could see it. It then descended into a nearby neighborhood. It did not move like a conventional aircraft. They drove toward the object, but they lost sight of it because of nearby trees. They returned to the highway, hoping to see it, but it was no longer visible. I gave the caller the telephone number for Ruben Uriarte.
