Date: February 1997
Location: North Berwick, East Lothian Scotland
Time: early morning
Summary: The witness, Angie, suddenly woke up with a start and realized that the only part of her body she could move was her eyes. Disbelievingly she stared into the gloom of her bedroom at a small hunched figure, about 3 ft tall that stood by her bed. The witness was terrified and could not move. As she continued to stare at the creature it moved suddenly emitting a strong smell of “burnt cardboard or paper.” It leant over her and as it did so the witness hear telepathically in her head mechanical sounding words “Gran says do it in the morning.” With that the small entity vanished, leaving a heavy odor of burnt paper in the room, and Angie discovered she could move normally again. After having slept like a log for several hours, she woke refreshed, recalling the strange event with great clarity. She was in no doubt about the meaning of those cryptic words. Her much beloved grandmother had died just two weeks previously, and Angie’s grief had prevented her from applying from her “dream job”, as nanny for a family in Edinburgh. She felt as though her grandmother had sent her a message.

Summary: The witness woke facing inwards on her bed; she heard voices calling her name. Some words were mumbled but she could hear the others very clearly. She then realized she could not move. Soon she found out she was able to roll over on her back. She saw a short man (human in appearance) with dark hair and a short beard. She only saw him from the waist up. He looked at her and glided towards the long window that was about 2 ft from her head. A bright white light was gleaming into the window. When the man got to the window he looked at her and said “You should be used to this by now”, she does not remember anything else.

While Claudia Fuentes sister felt a warm rush of air enter her room, Claudia left the house and suddenly found herself waking down a long hallway in which she was met by several humanoids, described as having long arms, wrinkled mouths and four fingered hands. The humanoids led her to a place resembling a hospital, removed her lower part of her garments, and placed her on a stretcher. Although Claudia was not aware that she was pregnant, as six-foot tall creature extracted a fetus through her vagina, placed it inside a square jar filled with a bubbling fluid, and walked away with it. Claudia also reported seeing other creatures with similar features but measuring only 3-feet in height.

When she regained consciousness, she found herself lying in the middle of the town square, where some witnesses claimed seeing a sudden burst of light. There she was found in a semi-conscious state, frightened, weeping and with wet hair.

Location: Big Springs, Texas
Time: night
Summary: on February 6, 1997, Doctor Martin Feldman was driving by night along Interstate 78 to his house at Big Springs, Texas, when his headlights fell on a very tall shape besides the road. He felt scared even before seeing the being’s face because he could already see that the shape was very strange and enormous. As he passed the being, he noted that it was not someone in fancy dress or disguize, but a humanoid shape, with head, chest, arms, legs etc., of “reptilian” aspect. The body was covered with scales, the eyes were shining and protuberant like frog’s eyes, it had a very wide mouth with no lips. Feldman fled in terror at top speed. He came back the next day accompanied by the county Comissionner of Police, but they only found a few very vague footprints. The Commissionner and his assistant both believed the story because they already had previous reports of the sane type of creature in the district.

Summary: While driving along the highway the witnesses saw a light suddenly appear in front of them. Thinking it was a truck they drove towards it. Upon getting closer to the light, it was so bright and blinding that they had to slow down. Half the road was closed off and suddenly they saw a man that appeared to be alone in the middle of nowhere sweeping the road. The witnesses drove up to the man and explained that they could not see the road due to the light. The man hardly showed his face, but what they could see was a very high forehead and very wide set eyes. He was about 7-feet tall and of stocky build. He did not want to talk to the witnesses and made very attempt to get them to drive on. As they drove on the light slowly disappeared. 30 minutes later a light with bright yellow high beams briefly followed the vehicle.

While investigating a peculiar mutilation of a sheep, which was found with some holes in the skull and completely drained of blood, local military police heard some peculiar noises coming from a field near the farmer’s house. While conducting a search of the area one officer reported seeing a tall dark humanoid shape in a sugar cane field. He called for assistance. Later while searching the area the officers found a strange greenish liquid on the ground among the stalks. Strange unmarked helicopters were also seen in the same area the next morning. (At the site of a goat mutilation in Miami, in 1996, which I went to, a greenish ooze came out of the round holes around the dead animal’s neck, there was no blood present, AR).

Time: 2200
Ann S was heading towards Klamath Falls when she suddenly heard a thump and thought it may have been a flat tire. Ann grabbed a flashlight and checked the tires, which were OK, and then got back into the car. She said there was a funny smell, and she looked out the window, seeing something moving towards her. Thinking it to be a person with bad intentions she locked the doors and prepared to start the engine, and whatever it was kept coming. She shined her flashlight out the window, and saw what she described as a “weirdo” creature. It had large red eyes that reflected the light when the flashlight hit them. The creature then covered its eyes with its arms crossed, and screeched. It appeared to rub its eyes as if to get its sight back. She noted that the creature was about 4 ft tall, green, scaly, and had claws on its four fingered hands. She honked the horn, which caused the creature to run away, she then noticed that it had several long green “spines” which hung off its back.

Upon arriving home they ran inside and could still see the object quietly hovering outside. They then woke up their father who thought they were joking.

Time: 0310A
The witness was returning home by car when he noticed something unusual in his headlights in the distance on the right hand side of the road, on a footpath about 80 meters away. It resembled the figures of two children playing on the footpath, which was very unusual given the time. As the witness approached it became obvious that what the witness thought were children were not. There were two featureless, long, hunched, stick-like figures about 4 ft tall in height. They had long skinny arms stretching to the ground, long skinny legs and a very skinny body, which looked no wider than 20cm in diameter. They had no facial features and appeared to be wearing a dark one-piece body suit, black in color, which covered their whole bodies including their heads. As the car of the witness closed in to about 15 meters, the witness noticed that they appeared to become frightened upon seeing the vehicle. At that instant they scurried across in front of the car at great speed. The witness became scared realizing that what he had seen had been totally alien in nature. He accelerated looking into the rearview mirror noticing that the figures had crossed into the front yard of a house on the opposite side of the street. Shaken, the witness sped home and spent a sleepless night pondering over what had occurred. The next day the witness returned to the area to check around but noted nothing untoward.

A 50-year old grandmother was sleeping with her grandchildren in a room and had left several lights on to comfort them. She awoke suddenly and noticed that the lights were turned off. Her eyes slowly accustomed to the dark and she felt a presence in the room. She then saw two short figures standing near her bed. She attempted to contact them, by using telepathy, pleading to go with them if they left the children alone. The beings did not answer her plea. She was then startled as one of the beings moved aggressively and grabbed her. She jumped up and punched the being on the face, his skin felt like hard plastic, she struggled further grabbing the figure by the throat, the neck appeared horribly wrinkled. The being was about 5-feet tall and thin. She then bit the being; she said it felt like biting a cold piece of ham. After a few minutes of struggling the being dropped to the floor. At this time a third figure appeared in the room, then the two standing aliens moved towards her. One brushed against her face and grabbed her wrist; this one seemed stronger than the first. She then suddenly passed out. Upon regaining consciousness the figures were gone. The children had been apparently unharmed. She suffered from a severe headache afterwards and found three puncture wounds on her neck.

The male witness was driving to work when he sees four gold sized balls of white light zigzag in unison over some nearby power lines. They then hovered about 50 feet from the ground looking a little blurry. The witness continues east on the road and 10 minutes later sees the same lights over a bog. At this point he begins to hear voices inside his head. The witness, now having stomach pains, hears the voices warned him about studying UFOs. (!) He then asks several questions, which the voices answer. Soon as he came upon some large pine trees there was a blinding orange flash & he felt the vehicle rise up, he apparently then blacks out. An hour later he wakes up in his vehicle.

Riccardo, while fishing alone by the River Livenza suddenly felt a presence behind him, turning around he saw a bizarre humanoid figure somewhat similar to a man. The humanoid was about 1.30 meters in height with an oval shaped head lacking a mouth, nose or ears. It had two large black oval shaped eyes covered with some form of retina similar to cobweb. Riccardo approached the humanoid and touched its skin. The humanoid’s body was covered in a fine gray fur similar to that of an “astrakhan” rug. Its arms were disproportionately long as compared to the rest of the body and its hands were dark gray in color with three long pointy digits that ended in pink colored tips. Its feet were identical to the hands. The humanoid lacked elbows or knees and no sexual organs were apparent. It slowly approached Riccardo touching his forehead with one of its hands. At this point Riccardo felt as he had gone into some kind of psychic or telepathic contact with the humanoid. Suddenly a strange mist began to form around them and out of a mist a metallic landed object appeared. Riccardo was then taken inside the craft and shown around for about five minutes and then was deposited back on the riverside.
