Location:  Colonias del Yunque Puerto Rico
Time:  0200A
Summary:  Alberto Rivera was sitting watching television, when the whole area around was engulfed in white light, and a vast saucer appeared, with colored lights all around its rim. Rivero said that the vivid white light, “like rain” came right through the roof of his house. He tried in vain to awaken his sleeping wife, but could not. All the dogs in the district were barking madly, and the huge UFO hung there silently in the sky. Suddenly, a bizarre creature came running fast along the road, followed by a great pack of howling, barking dogs. Then from beneath the huge UFO, came a great beam of white light “like a tube” and the “Chupacabra” like creature shot up into the tube and was retrieved by the UFO. A few minutes later the great craft itself shot up into the sky and vanished towards El Yunque.

During a wave of animal mutilations and attacks in the region by an unknown predator, at a truck depot outside the city several men came upon a strange creature that was apparently attacking the goat pen. The men gave chase to the creature, which they described as having large red eyes, wings, and that ran in a peculiar “jumping” fashion, several of the men stoned the creature which then climbed up on an electrical pole. While on the pole it apparently received a strong electrical discharge, which caused it to fall to the ground, it then got up and ran into a nearby field quickly disappearing from sight.

Sharon (involved in other encounters) woke up during the night to strange bumping sounds in her house. The mysterious bumping sounds woke her up periodically during the night. She was afraid to get up and investigate on her own. Finally she woke up again to see a strange humanoid hovering in the hallway directly across from her bed. She described the humanoid as a small Negroid being about 3 & a half ft to four ft tall. He wore a complete astronaut’s suit with a helmet, dark blue gloves, and boots. The helmet had a clear visor, and she could see his face through it. She described his complexion as being a reddish or dark pink color with two vertical folds of flesh across the side of his cheeks. His lips were large and fleshy, and his nose, broad and flat. His eyes looked totally human and his expression was that of “complete boredom.” He was holding a round, black device that seemed to her like an old style radar gun used by the police. He pointed the object at the window in her bedroom and floated there as though waiting for something to happen. She also observed a white glowing light around him that reminded her of an aura. After a few minutes he disappeared, and the hallway and bedroom became dark again. A minute or two later, the room and everything in it was suddenly brightly illuminated…then to her surprise everything abruptly went completely dark again. The next morning she found all the grass and tree leaves on the side of her house near the bedroom window were yellowed and clearly dehydrated.

Marcelo Barbosa and his wife Vaudeline were fixing some windows in their house when they perceived some bright white, yellow and blue lights coming from a wooded area about 50 meters away. Marcelo decided to investigate closer and saw a large white cloud that began descending slowly over the woods. Suddenly from out of the cloud a luminous disc shaped object emerged. The object was about 8 meters in length, and it had a revolving light on top resembling that of a police car. The object had two or three brightly lit windows and inside one of these Barbosa was able to see several figures or forms moving around. The object descended and landed briefly, becoming dark, then bright again. Before it landed the witnesses saw an L shaped ramp that apparently had come out from the bottom of the object. As the object became bright again, it quickly took off at high speed.

Irene Sander was nodding off to sleep when a blinding white light woke her and a throbbing noise filled her ears. Paralyzed, she lay in fear as her body rose off the bed, almost reaching the ceiling. Then suddenly she went blank, waking hours later exhausted and aching, her room filled with a horrible odor. When Irene regained consciousness she was covered in bruises and puncture marks. Severely dehydrated and disoriented, Irene believes aliens had raped her. Her son Ryan also remembered a bright light and of flying onboard a spaceship to different parts of the world accompanied by short aliens about 90c m in height, very thin with grayish blue skin and black almond shaped eyes. Irene remembered being inside the ship; it was dull silver in color with a horrible musty smell. She communicated with the aliens via telepathy.

Ildo Gardino, a biology student, was driving to Varginha when after a sharp bend of the road he saw a creature trying to cross the road in between pasture and woods.

The creature was covered with dark brown hair; it had large red eyes that glowed as if reflective. In a protective manner it covered its face with its hand and crouched down. The witness now could make out little horns on the creature’s head. When the car approached the creature left the road returning to the woods where it had come from.

The witness had just returned from feeding his horses, and gone inside his house when he noticed the back of a strange creature perched atop a six-foot fence. The creature stood 3 1/2 feet tall, was blackish green in color, with long 4 inch fangs coming out of the top of its mouth and a long whip-like tail. Additionally, the creature’s mouth was full of razor like teeth. The creature had “three bird-like” toes and on its arms, or wings, it had claws, long and shiny. The most striking feature was its red blazing eyes, which had a hypnotic effect on the witness. The witness armed himself with a double barrel shotgun, and opened the patio door and slowly walked outside. He watched the creature jump into some nearby grape vines. Bringing his shotgun up to his shoulders he fired twice. On the second barrel, the creature gave a high-pitched scream and disappeared into a puff of smoke. Immediately there was a horrible stench in the air. The witness felt that had he not shot the creature it would have attacked him. After the shooting his 3 dogs howled on smelling the stench and tried to get back inside the house.

It was reported that numerous witnesses spotted an unusual aircraft swoop down and land on the runway without tower permission and taxied over to the privately owned airplane parking area. The craft was described as a triangle-shaped object. The tower called the pilot but received no response. Three small occupants emerged from the object and began walking among the parked airplanes. Airport security then chased the beings across the runway right in front of a landing Delta airliner. Delta passengers described the beings as child-like in appearance, wearing metallic suits and white helmets. The three humanoids ducked into the terminal through the baggage area still being chased by airport security. Police were called in but when they apparently cornered the trio near a yogurt stand, they ran into what seemed to be an invisible barrier and could not get close to them. The humanoids then ran out through the baggage area. At the same time that Army personnel were arriving on humvees, the delta-winged UFO began to move. Witnesses saw the three occupants in the cockpit window. The object then rose straight up and took off at high speed.

Eva Leonidovna and her husband Leonid Pavlovich both residents of this small village were sitting inside their house reading when suddenly Eva felt someone’s fixed stare on her; she put down the newspaper and glanced out the window. Outside she saw a humanoid entity moving on their neighbor’s yard in the direction of the wicket fence towards the porch. The alien was more than 3 meters in height, which could be easily calculated judging by the height of the house. The width of the alien’s body was estimated as 2 times thicker than a telephone pole. Its hands and legs strangely did not move as it seemed to float just above the ground. The most amazing part of the alien was its head, which was completely round, the shape of an ideal sphere. The face was not visible because the whole head was dark in color and sparkled at times with blue, yellow and white flashes. The strange entity then disappeared behind some rowan berry bushes. Evan then rushed to the window, but she could not see anything. The entity had apparently dissolved into thin air. The whole observation lasted for 2 minutes; the woman attempted to notify her husband, but could not speak a word, apparently somehow influenced by the alien’s presence.
