The next day at Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport, she encountered a tall young male dressed in a strange army fatigues that had unusually clear and radiant skin. He wore a green beret and had reddish blond hair. He had sort of a pleasant blank expression on his face. The whole time the witness saw him; he was standing in the “at ease” position.

He runs towards the light and attempts to shout but no sound comes out of his mouth. He hits an invisible force field. He is unable to move. He then sees two small beings emerge from the luminous form. The figures appeared to be viscous and transparent and pass close to him, seemingly unaware of his presence. The figures walked towards the nearby barn. At the same time the witness feels a prickling sensation on his body and begins to sweat.

Date:  January 6 1997
Location:   Kane, PA
Time:   
Summary:   Witness, 5 years old, got up to get a glass of water. Returned to his room to find a “wavy blue vortex” from which a voice asked “Do you want to go with us?” He agreed and felt a tingling static sensation then found himself on what appeared to be a polished marble surface. A female ET (she had breasts) greeted him in a soft feminine voice with “Hello (name withheld) it is nice to see you again.” She was about 4 feet tall with milky white skin, a small nose, no lips (he thinks), and almond shaped eyes that were not as large as a typical gray. He was led up a staircase to a hall about 12 feet wide and in to an area with 12 beds, 6 on each side of the room. One bed was empty. There were hybrid (he thinks) children with medium gray skin in the beds and several were jumping on the beds. A clearly annoyed ET told them to stop jumping. The female ET escorting him gave him a medallion like one she was wearing and told him she was going to help him increase his mental powers. She told him to concentrate on her inner self. She then passed through what appeared to be a solid concrete block. She then instructed him to try. He was able to go only part way through and she had to pull him out. She told him to try again and the second time he was successful. She told him that he had mastered it faster than she did. She took back the medallion. She next led him through a door that opened by sliding up. where he met a male ET who was taller than the female and had “Native American cheek bones.” The witness states that the male was holding back his emotions. There were windows in this part of the craft and he could see out into space. There were also controls of some type in this room. He could see through a window in the floor into an area with a machine which he believes was the teleportation device. The craft was a disk and the size of “4 aircraft carries end-to-end.” An old ET entered and said it was time to leave. Everyone became sad. He woke up in his bed neatly tucked in. No one had ever tucked him in before.  When he was 8 years old, he saw the same type of craft and said that when it ascended, it was gone in the blink of an eye. He estimated the speed at ‘60,000 miles an hour.” He stated that they have craft the size of small planets and the one that was recorded drawing plasma off our Sun is one of them. The video is on YouTube.

On one occasion, he was shown a vision in which he saw 4 disk shaped craft and hangars as if on a military base. There was a crowd of people who all appeared to be in a trance state walking into a craft. He pretended to be in a trance also and boarded with them. In side there was a bench on the wall and happy gray children sitting on it swinging their feet. Several old ETs approached him and asked him, “Do you want to come with us or stay here?” He said he wanted to go with them and they were surprised. The vision ended. When he was 16 he had a vision of being taken to a beautiful planet where it was very bright but it did not hurt his eyes. He felt a powerful sense of peace. The houses appeared to be of Adobe. There was one building that was made of bricks that looked something like a college. It had a tower reminiscent of Big Ben. He was told that this is where they receive knowledge and store things from other planets. On another occasion, he remembers military doctors operating on his head. A reptilian male told them to stop because the boy was in pain. The witness is 23 years old. He has Celtic and Native American (Iroquois) ancestry. After his experience at age 5, he felt “different.” He has short term memory problems and states that he often feels that he is different ages, mostly older than his years. He has had chronic nose bleeds and his right nostril is difficult to breath through. He has a cousin who has had some experiences that were not gone into.

One of the witnesses loaded a gun and began firing at the craft, when nothing happened they ran to the cabin. On the way there their path was blocked by several short thin gray skinned humanoids that appeared to be carrying long needle-like implements.

Time: 0200A
Two 12-year old boys, Peter & Steven, had silently sneaked out of their homes as their parents slept, & had gone to a nearby storage yard to play for awhile. Soon they headed home taking a short cut through a large equipment yard, sliding underneath the chain link fence. Halfway through the lot they noticed a very large shiny white box on the ground. As they passed it hey heard a “thump” like noise. Right after that came a “popping” sound. They moved on to see a series of lights, red, blue, green reflecting from some nearby equipment. Unable to determine their source they crossed the yard, at this point reaching a dark area of the property. They then heard a lengthy high-pitched modulating screech that made their hair stand up. Whirling around they saw, three small “pink figures” walking rapidly between some items of equipment, quickly becoming lost from view. The being had no sign of a buttocks cleavage, nor visible evidence of knee joints or fingers. During the whole encounter it was very warm. At this point a maroon van suddenly roared around the corner and came to a skidding halt near the boys. Its headlights illuminated the boys & its bald headed driver remained inside the van. Very frightened at this point the boys ran out of the property vaulting over the chain link fence. They felt extremely thirsty upon arriving home.

Location. Essex, England
Date: January 19 1997
Time: night
Four days after encountering a UFO William Shearer had come home from work, and was trying to get some sleep, his wife and daughter had stepped out. He came downstairs for a drink, and thought he heard a faint knock on the door. As Shearer approached the door he could see the outline of a tall man through the glass. Shearer opened the door and was faced with a strange sight. The man was around 6’4″, and dressed in a dark gray suit and full-length coat. He wore a brilliant white shirt and a red tie, and was holding a brimmed hat. Another similarly dressed man was standing behind Shearer’s wife car, and appeared to be looking up and down the road, as if to see if anyone was coming. The tall man said, “Can I speak to you please?” His voice was very deep, and seemed to be coming from his chest rather than his mouth. At this stage the man’s gaze was lowered to the floor so Shearer could not see his face. Thinking they were Jehovah’s Witnesses, Shearer replied, “No, I am not dressed”. The man persisted, and asked again to speak to Shearer who again declined and asked him to come back later. When the man lifted his head and looked straight at Shearer his first impression was that the man was very ill, as he looked deathly pale. In contrast his lips seemed to tinged red, as if he were wearing lipstick. The stranger insisted in coming in, but Shearer held his ground. The two strangers kept looking at each other, either nodding or gesturing in some way. The men then walked towards their car, which was black and according to Shearer it looked like something straight out of a gangster movie, yet it looked brand new. Shearer noticed that the men walked awkwardly and appeared to have no facial hair. He also received a later visit.

Summary: Juan Hernandez was driving his car near town when he saw a bright star-like object suddenly descend over the area. He stopped his car near a local bridge in order to obtain a better view of the object. The bright blue light approached his position changing into a turquoise tint. The witness then saw a ship behind the lights. He described it as a huge triangular shaped craft, with a transparent cupola on top. Inside the cupola he could see a tall humanoid figure looking down on him. The figure appeared thin, with a large bulb-shaped head; he also noticed that it had large dark eyes. While looking at the craft a bright beam of light suddenly illuminated him. At that moment he felt a great sense of peace. The craft was silent and it had blinking multi-colored lights. The craft then began to move slowly away. He got inside his vehicle and attempted to follow the object, but his path was blocked by what appeared to be a military vehicle. Several men wearing black military outfits warned him not to follow the object or something might “happen” to him. The craft was soon lost from sight, and the men & military vehicle left the area.
