Time:  0130A
Summary:  The witness was driving alone back home to Kansas along some isolated dirt roads when he saw something in the middle of the road ahead about 100 to 150 yards…just beyond the reach of the headlights, just a shadowy figure. Not alarmed, he proceeded slowly, thinking it was a farm animal and that he would have to maneuver around it. As he approached it he first thought that it was a “real big dog” but as he closed in he realized it was a creature that he had never seen before. He could only describe it as a tall werewolf like creature covered in reddish and yellowish hair. It had an evil looking face with a wide mouth filled with teeth that were all long and sharp. Its eyes were blood red, full of evil and hate. The stunned witness stopped the vehicle and stared at the creature for a few seconds and then threw his truck in reverse and sped back as fast as he could. The creature did not budge it just stood in the middle of the road looking as the witness fled the area.

Summary:  46-year-old Lawrence John and his dog were exploring a rock formation in an isolated area when they were suddenly enveloped in a blinding white light. John suddenly found himself standing outside a huge object with several humanoid figures standing in front of him. The beings were about 5-feet tall, gray in color, & appeared to be floating just above the ground. They wore something resembling a caftan. He was apparently taken inside the craft; there he saw at least 50 other similar beings. The beings communicated by using telepathy. Later he suddenly found himself outside with his dog & the craft and beings were gone.

Location. Munich, Germany
Date: September 1996
Time: late night
The witness was staying with her 1-year old daughter at a local pediatric clinic since her daughter was suffering from a heavy infection. She was sleeping next to her daughter’s bed in a folding cot. Sometime during the night she felt a presence in the room and suddenly awakened. At first she looked around and did not see anything and closed her eyes again. As she closed her eyes a strange vision appeared. She could see what appeared to be a “birdman” with green bluish resplendent feathers and a small bill. The eyes were larger than normal and its body was human, at least its upper section since she could not see the lower area. Its estimated height was about 2 meters; it seemed to float just above the floor. She opened her eyes and the vision vanished as her daughter slept peacefully next to her. When she closed her eyes, the “birdman” returned as before. She attempted to call out and was unable to. The “birdman” remained staring at her; he leaned over her and spoke to her telepathically telling her not to be afraid. His movements were fluid and quick, it radiated much warmth and security. She calmed down and fell into a deep sleep. Apparently she did not see the “birdman” again.

Location. Villa Devoto, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Date: September 1996
Time: late night
Damian Franco (involved in a previous encounter) woke up to see the same short luminous being standing at the foot of his bed. While he stared at the luminous figure a strange image of a deserted and lifeless landscape appeared in his mind. Around the same time an 11-year old granddaughter, Florencia, reported waking up one late night after someone squeezed her arm and yanked her sheets off. Horrified she watched a strange creature with a large head, no hair, large black penetrating eyes, standing next to her bed. A strange light illuminated the room, suddenly the light shut off and she was able to move and scream the creature then disappeared.

Time: night
Three local police officers watched an object land near Serro das Mottas. They approached the area in order to obtain a better look when suddenly the object emitted two bright flashes of light and two small humanoids suddenly appeared. The humanoids had human-like faces with large luminous eyes. These approached to within 50 meters of the officers using quick lateral movements. A strange malaise seemed to overcome the officers that quickly left the area and id not see the object or humanoids depart.

Date: September 8 1996
Location: Seattle to Tokyo 2 NWA flt 007
Time: 00:00
Summary: Three luminous spheres followed the 747 on the port side as the aircraft headed toward Tokyo. Notified flight attendant. Objects flew close together and below our altitude of approx. 35,000 ft. The event took place either over the Pacific or Alaska while enroute to Tokyo from Seattle via Northwest Airlines flt. 007. The luminous spheres were so bright that it wasn’t possible to determine shape. The three objects were a bright silvery color and followed the aircraft below our altitude in a loose formation. There was no wild manuevering but the objects did ascend and descend slightly. The distance from the aircraft could have been a mile behind us and perhaps 1000 ft below our altitude. I notified the flight attendant and she said she would notify the crew–possibly the crew made visual contact also. Most of the passengers were asleep at the time. Do not know if NWA flight crew notified air control. I was formerly with North American Aviation/Space Division assigned to a photographic unit documenting the command module tests during the Apollo program.

Location. Cabeca da Penha Mountain, Portugal
Date: September 15 1996
Time: unknown
A young backpacker, Ricardo Machado Oliveira, was exploring a remote mountain cave and while in it apparently blacked out. When he came to, he found himself in a vast underground hangar surrounded by “three distinct species of aliens.” Nearby were several ovoid silvery craft. The aliens told Ricardo that they were part of an alliance of interstellar worlds engaged in observing Earth. Their base under the Serra da Guardunha was one of four such bases. Immediately after hearing this Ricardo blacked out again. When he opened his eyes, he was lying on the ground right outside the cave. (In the 14th century, at the same cave, a little girl from a nearby village vanished for three days. When she was finally found, she told the search party that she had been cared for by “a lady in white”, who had offered her water to drink from a bell. Some have attributed this to a visitation by the Blessed Virgin Mary.)

Location:   Bethel, Alaska
Time:  14:30
Summary:  I happened to look out my back window and was shocked to see a huge triangular shaped craft at a very high altitude. I was in the Air Force for five years,but must say that the object I saw that day was unlike anything I had ever seen before.It was partly cloudy with some cummulous clouds but large clear areas.I happened to {for some reason}to look out the back window of the house,and spotted a huge triangular object at a very high altitude moving at what must have been a tremendous rate of speed.By the time I excitedly ran from the bedroom to the livingroom to tell my wife and son about the object{a distance of about ten yards}knowing it would pass by our large window,apparantly the object passed,as I only saw a mettallic glint as the sunlight reflected off it.I have seen many,many jets,both millitary and commercial fly at high altitudes;we are blessed with many clear,cloudless days here,especially in the wintertime.The difference was the comparative size of the object I saw and a jet at approximately the same altitude.I had a casual interest in UFO’s prior to seeing the object,skeptical at best,but what I saw that afternoon literally made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Amazing.

Time:  0415A
Summary:  The 6-year old witness was sleeping on the floor of his brother’s room that night when he suddenly awoke and looked to his right and there was a white face with a grayish tint that was apparently lying on the ground staring at him. It had large black eyes and an almond shaped head, no ears, a slit for a mouth and two holes for a nose. It seemed to be about 5 ft 8 inches in length (tall). The witness could not move his neck much so he could not see its entire figure. Both alien and witness stared at each other for a good 5 minutes or so. It didn’t flinch or move. When the witness attempted to scream he couldn’t. He could move his arms but not his legs. He then heard a voice in his head that said, “Don’t move it is already done” or something like similar. Upon hearing that, the witness decided to defend himself and punched it directly on the face. As soon as his hand made contact with the creature, it disappeared. There appears to have been about an hour time lapse and in the morning the witness found marks on his arm and later on his back. He remembers that while he stared at the alien there appeared to be a white light surrounding him. He does not think he was in his brother’s room at that point.

Location. Nazareth, Israel
Date: September 16 1996
Time: evening
62-year old Uri Sakhov was walking to a local post office when suddenly he heard a loud whizzing sound and felt hands grab his hair and shoulders. In an instant he found himself being pulled into an egg shaped object. Inside he found himself in a strange crystal chamber surrounded by several small humanoids. These were described as 2 to 3 feet tall, with heads shaped like light bulbs and skinny limbs that made unintelligible noises. The leader was described as taller & green colored wearing flowing robes. He was very slender and had a narrow vertical head, with eyes located on either side of it. One of the small humanoids stepped up to the witness and sprayed his face with a yellowish powder. Soon they conducted numerous medical tests on Sakhov, which made him feel “horrible” and very uncomfortable. Midway through the tests the witness blacked out. When he came to he found himself lying flat on his back in the middle of a soccer stadium half a kilometer from his house. Feeling dizzy he went home & noticed that he still had some of the yellow powder on his face. The powder was analyzed @ a local hospital & it was discovered that it was about 60 percent aluminum and different form any soil found in the area.

Date:  September 23, 1996: The Fife Incident


Date:  September 23 1996
Location:  Falkland Hills, Scotland
Time:  2145
Summary:  The witnesses had seen at 2000 a huge triangular shaped craft shining some very bright beams of lights towards the ground. The object hovered over the area and was seen to slowly bank revealing a large dome on top. On the underside they could see three small red lights on each apex of the object. Suddenly the object shot away into the distance at the sound of an approaching aircraft. At 2030 the witnesses again saw the huge triangle over the same location, shining down powerful beams of white light. Later some of the witnesses returned back to the area and watched a powerful blue glow appear above a field at about treetop height. In order to obtain a better look they drove down a narrow lane and parked their vehicle. They then saw a large star-like object just above the blue glow that was pulsing & growing larger & smaller alternately. Suddenly they noticed the silhouettes of numerous small thin figures, moving about, one of the figures however was much taller than the others, around seven feet tall. Other small beings moved in amongst the trees in the field. A large black object sat on the ground. The figures appeared to be moving towards the object. At this point the witnesses became extremely frightened & drove away from the area. They arrived at the home of one of the other witnesses borrowing some binoculars. They soon returned to the location & noticed the blue light still glowing. They again saw the little beings moving in & out of the trees. They also saw the very tall being standing with its back to them. Looking at the hovering object with binoculars they could now tell that it was amber in color, with dark indentations all around it. It rotated slowly, occasionally turning on its axis. Dozens of small creatures apparently carrying small boxes and tubular canisters were visible. Taller figures were also seen & described as having brown skin & oriental eyes, that seemed to be supervising a large group of the smaller beings. Using the binoculars they now spotted a large transparent illuminated capsule-shaped object, rippled on the outside with indentations like a brain. The object appeared to be on the ground & there were some very small thin beings inside it. Next to this object was another smaller one, otherwise identical to the first. This one contained a very tall being with brown skin. Another larger craft was also seen on the ground near the woods. There were lots of lights around it and dozens of small entities that appeared to be working in groups, going in & out of the woods. The witnesses also saw capsule shaped objects resembling cocoons coming out of the woods. These objects suddenly shot across the field towards the witnesses, hovering a few feet from them. Each of the capsules contained one of the small entities. They were dozens of capsules now hovering near the witnesses. At this point the witnesses became disoriented and had vague memories of being touched by the small entities with probe like devices. The small entities were described as having huge black eyes, & smiled at the witnesses. They communicated among themselves by making loud high-pitched noises, like whales. The witnesses later remembered leaving the area & returning home in a state of shock. Later while checking the scene of the incident, investigators found circular marks on the ground, burnt & dead vegetation, and branches from nearby trees covered in what appeared to be white spider web-type material.

The witness was lying in bed when he heard a loud noise resembling an approaching train. The ground shook around his bed. Then a bright light lit up the sky and moved over the house, and then seemed to hover over the porch area. Looking out the window he saw a dark figure standing outside. He closed his eyes terrified and then found himself floating above the hedge outside the house. Looking up he saw an arrangement of red, blue, yellow, and white lights. In the middle of the object there appeared to be a glowing door shaped entrance. The witness screamed and blacked out. He remembers waking up in his bed three days later, having no memory of what happened during those three days.
(Hypnotic regression apparently has not been explored) He found numerous scars on his body.

Nelson Cortes had been unable to fall sleep that night when his younger brother Josue alerted him to a strange-lighted object that had apparently landed in a field behind Cortes house. Upon investigating the site they saw a large rounded object that had landed on three leg-like supports. The object was surrounded by a brilliant red glow. The craft was silvery metallic in color. The two witnesses then saw a ramp like protrusion extend to the ground. Several short green humanoids then exited the object via the ramp. These were described as thin, with long skinny arms, potbellies, large heads, huge pointy ears, and large dark oval shaped eyes. They all wore tight fitting metallic helmets on their heads. The beings began to walk around the field. At that moment both witnesses panicked and began screaming, immediately the beings ran into the object, which then closed the ramp, became brighter, tilted to one side then shot away at incredible speed. Neighbors heard the boys scream and also saw the object and lights.

Location:  Cordillera de Tajsara, Bolivia
Time:  1900
Summary:  While hiking in the rugged mountainous region, Roberto Suarez Molina, 28, became lost. During the search, air rescue units reported strange glows around the snow-covered peak of Nevado Chorolque, at the western end of the Tajsara Range. On Friday Roberto saw a light with a weird appearance, it crossed the sky, stopped for a moment in mid-air, and then became a red light before disappearing. Later a bright light lit up Roberto’s campsite. Looking up he saw a “tube of light” of incredible brilliance. The tube of light turned from the horizontal to the vertical, then slowly descended, landing on the mountain trail near his campfire. He suddenly found himself face to face with a luminous humanoid form that “told him things”. The entity predicted that Roberto would be rescued by the Bolivian air force around noontime on Saturday. The humanoid was right, on that day Roberto was spotted by a Cessna aircraft and was picked up by a helicopter.

Summary: Entity’s Description: I have asked “Lee” to utilize the height of the bed’s railing as reference to determine the size of the entity and she later concluded that it was approximately 42 inches (106.7cm) tall. Although her initial report described its’ skin as “reptile like” but further into our interview, she did state that it did not have scales or have the texture of a crocodile but rather the look of rough skin. Its’ color was a dark, mossy green/gray and glossy and it was not wearing clothing or a uniform. The head had that classic [b]Gray-alien appearance with large black eyes[/b] and each hand had three digits (two fingers and a thumb). Wendi: “It had 3 fingers kinda on the long side and they were fatter at the tips of his fingers”.
