Time: evening
Summary: A woman working alone in a camping ground cafeteria saw five strange men walk into the restaurant. They sat down and ordered drinks and began speaking to the woman. They told her that they had come from another planet and that they spoke all languages. Since she spoke four languages, she asked them questions in all four, each time they answered correctly. They also spoke to her in other “strange” idioms, and without revealing their origin, they had their drinks and left. Around the same time and in the same area 3 witnesses had seen a landed UFO. No other information on the second case.

Summary: A farmer encountered a bizarre Chupacabra type creature in a field and shot at it with a 30-30 shotgun. It let out a high-pitched scream, and ran off without leaving any blood trail. It had been attacking the farmer’s cat when he shot it. The cat survived being bitten. It was described as three feet tall, yellow in color, with long spines on its back 1-1/2 ft long, glowing red eyes. The creature was ten ft away when it was shot and it immediately dropped the cat and ran off.

Summary: The main witness and a friend spotted a large low altitude low speed triangular shaped object. It had a red light on each corner and it made absolutely no sound. It seemed to drift over the area at about 100 or 200 feet above the tree line. They followed it around for about 30 minutes until it disappeared into the distance. Later the main witness was in his bed late at night when he suddenly woke up to see a strange humanoid figure staring at him from the window. The figure had a white luminous pearly white body, with a diamond shaped bulbous head; it lacked any nasal openings or mouth. The witness got the impression that he was looking at some sort of mask because it was very smooth. The eyes were a glassy black, but they were not slanted in nature. They were flat on the top and bottom, rounded on the inside edges and wrapped around the sides of the head like sunglasses, or more accurately like a dragonfly’s eyes. Terrified, the witness threw his head under the blanket, too scared to move a muscle or make any sounds. He left the room soon and stayed up all night clutching a butcher knife.

The witness, Alicja L was sleeping at a friend’s house and was having difficulty falling asleep, meanwhile her friend slept soundly next to her. She began hearing strange noises coming from a corridor of the house. Soon it became strangely silent, a very odd type of silence the witness had difficulty describing. Still she was not able to sleep, she became extremely nervous and began to pray. She suddenly felt uncontrollable panic and could not move her body. She then noticed a foggy silhouette of a strange creature, standing close to her body. The figure was about 170cm in height, with a small bulb-like head, with thin body, arms and legs. The witness felt the creature touching her. She cannot say how long the experience lasted by she felt very frightened. She felt tired and took a deep breath; at this point the creature seemed to have disappeared. It was 0400A; she fell asleep soon and suffered from different nightmares. The next morning she received a call from her mother who had been very uneasy and concerned about her. Somehow her mother felt like she had been in extreme danger.

Location:  Bochum Germany
Time:   23:00
Summary:  When I and my friends left our house to go to a party I saw a triangular formation of lights in the sky. Better to say: an angular formation of lights because there were no lights on the “back side” of the object. There were 4-7 white lights on both “sides” of the triangle. One light was in the “front corner”. The object made no sound. It made a circling motion. The axis of this motion was close to one of the “sides” of the craft. After ca. 2 min it vanished either by turning off the lights or disappearing behind the clouds or both. ( the sky was semi clouded ). The size of the object ( it’s altitude was at cloud layer ) must have been that of a passenger aircraft at least. I don’t remember if the white lights were blinking. It looked like this: ( not sure about the number of lights ) The “X” represents the axis of motion. O X O O O O O O

Time:   late night
Summary:  The witness woke up in the middle of night to see two figures dressed in black standing next to his bed. They seemed to be wearing polished visors, and no facial features could be seen. They began communication with the witness with telepathy. He saw in his mind a quadrangular picture and a spiral. They told him, he had been implanted with such equipment. A device they were going to use to be able to contact him in the future. They also said that it was so small that nothing could detect it. The next day he felt an itch on his stomach. He was surprised to find the numbers “2725” neatly edged on his stomach.

Summary: The witness was in his bedroom when he saw a short humanoid about 90 cm in height, with a large round head and moving in an awkward fashion as it ran in front of the bed and disappeared towards the kitchen. He followed the creature to see it disappeared into a hole under the kitchen. The family tried looking for it but could not find it. Moments later a loud sound was heard coming from within the floors of the house. A light blue stain appeared on the walls next to the stairs accompanied by a strange plastic like substance. Other family members saw in another room a bright sphere of light that flew over the floor and disappeared.

The creature had large reddish eyes, and long arms that ended in sharp claws. As both men stared back at the creature they felt strangely attracted to it. And if not because they also felt scared they would have gone over to where the creature was.

Summary: A huge light that most of all seemed like those light-balls in the discotheques followed our car. We were alone at the road and when we stopped to verify it stopped too. It was not a helicopter ’cause there were no sound at all and it moved almost 25 km. so it wasn’t a light coming from the ground neither. We were 4 people coming from a practice session with our salsa band. We had to drive app. 30 km to get home and when we got out of the city the girl in the back saw “something in the sky” so first we thought that there was a party going on somewhere. But as it was still there 5 minutes later we thought that it could be car moving with a light on the roof or something like that. But when we realized that it was a forest ti couldn’t be that neither. Therefore, even I, who normally does not believe in such things, started to get nervous. We tried to stop the car to see if we could hear something but no sounds were there besides some birds. The sky was not cloudy but not totally free from clouds neither. There were some kind of fog. But it could not be a helicopter; if it were a helicopter I would have been able to see it above. An det light was not coming from the ground neither. We started the car again an drove app. 10 km But as it was “following” us we stopped the car once more. When we stopped the car it stopped too. It was always right beside us. When we passed through a small village we thought that we had lost it, but when we got through it rejoined us beside the road. We were driving from Fos sur Mer to Salon de Provence in South France. The singer who was sitting in the back (the girl who first saw the thing) claimed that she had seen exactly the same ting in December last year with 2 friends as they were taking a walk in the forest. But it has only lasted for app. 10 seconds. This time the light followed the car for app. 25 km even when we took some sharp turns and when wh changed the road etc. it was right beside us.The Light:It was round but not like a circle. It was more like some small squares of light that was turning first one way and then the other in a smooth way. The center changed size all the time; it was like something pulsing – like a heart. Around of the center there were the smaller squares of light og all was turned in the same direction.It was like one of the best science fiction movies ! It changed size, high and speed. And it was sure that it followed us because we drove app. 3 km through the city and made some very sharp turns. If it had been something from the ground id would have had to pass through a forest, a lake and one more forest. If it was coming from the sky it made no sound at all and it could see us even when we drove with the lights out. When we arrived at Salon de Provence it stopped following us and returned to where we came from.We were all afraid as it was clear that this could not be explained. Even the driver who is a non-believer was afraid. The persons in the car: ((4 names deleted)). I am writing this with all the risk to called stupid og non realistic but I hope it can help if other people will report the same thing. Please do not hesitate to mail me back for further information (if there is any).I am writing this at the time of my return i.e. 10 minutes after the episode. ((Name deleted))

Summary: Five local residents, including a young man named M. Ryapolov, were fishing in a pond between a grove of birches and some cottages with private garden plots near Kashinskaya and Zarechnaya Streets when suddenly they saw a fiery red-yellowish globe flying in the sky. The globe then descended in an inclined trajectory and began to hover low over the ground at an altitude of about one meter. The globe-shaped object appeared approximately to be 3 meters in diameter. The distance from the witnesses and the object was about 40 meters. The globe was smooth, with what appeared to be a horizontal belt consisting of a row of spikes or thorns (each one about 10cm in diameter and 25cm long) were circling its middle section on its even smooth surface. A rectangular shaped door was opened in the lower section of the globe downwards creating a ladder, which was installed in the inner surface of the door. Two humanoids easily stepped out of the globe. Each entity was about 1.9 to 2 meters in height. They were dressed in dull gray black cloth-like tunics, but tighter fitting than those priests wear. The aliens had protruding noses, small ears, and hairless heads. Their skin was light, with round bulging eyes. One alien had red-yellow eyes, the second, lackluster bluish eyes. Both aliens had just slits instead of lips. At first the humanoids moved about as if they were “skating”, but then moved about like normal humans. They walked towards a cottage, several of the witnesses attempted to get closer but Ryapolov dissuaded from doing that. Meanwhile the humanoids were returning from the cottage and were carrying an elderly woman with them. The woman was screaming, “Help me, save me!” and was attempting to resist. When the aliens finally brought her to the craft, she stopped resisting and lost consciousness. The humanoids had been carrying her in a strange matter, elbows pointed to the front. During the ascent into the door of the craft the woman slipped out of one of the humanoid’s hands, but they quickly picked her up and moved her inside the spacecraft. The door immediately closed after that, and the globe-shaped craft zoomed into the sky. After that the witnesses approached the landing site but could not step into as they suddenly experienced cramps, convulsions in their bodies and extremities as if shocked by electricity. This situation was repeated on each attempt within 5 meters of the landing site. It appeared to have a protective field or barrier around it. The humanoids left clear boot prints on the soil.

Summary: Several watched a cylindrical, clearly metallic, resembling shiny aluminum, somewhat rounded object hovering on nearby hills, moving pendulum-like in and out of sight over top of the hill, at about 2000 feet at most. It suddenly disappeared with a very fast vertical movement. no sound heard. About one or two in the evening, in broad daylight, no clouds, object was seen hovering nearby mountains, not above but in front and then behind of the top, particularly strange movements, pendulum-like, fast and then slow. Cylindrical shape, clearly metallic and shiny like polished aluminum, no lights, perceived some rounded form in the middle, perhaps ring shapes on the top and bottom, probably sizable object of about 20 ft. long and 6 ft. wide. No balloon, aircraft or any other object in the sky. Was observed on rural area of Peru. Object clearly seen in front of mountain background, no sound heard. Object apparently disappeared but witnesses perceived very fast movement upward, in a northern direction. Event happened when I was about 12 or 13 years old, in 1966 or 1967, maybe thirty years ago. I just want to know if this kind of object or similar sighting exists in your archives or database. It not only was real, is a vivid image that for 30 years I been wondering about. I don’t want explanations, I am not an UFO believer, but I have seen what I have seen, nobody believes it really, but for me this is not a matter of faith, is just something I saw as a boy and can’t find no explanation for it. Please let me know about it, specially this rather strange object, different from the classic UFO’s that everybody knows.

The witness was walking on busy Wiltshire Blvd, when she looked up, and saw hovering between two buildings a large metallic hat shaped object, with several portholes around its rim. It was completely silent. As the witness stared at the object she felt some type of mental communication from it. Several nights later in a dream like state she remembered being in a round room with windows around it. She could see the skyline of West Los Angeles. She was apparently there with her sister and two nieces. Each of them had an instructor or guide. Her instructor was a very handsome man, with shoulder length blonde hair, about 32 years old, with a bare chest. He was loving, gentle, and kind. He had beautiful skin and smelled wonderful. Apparently she was taught many different things, one of them was that there was no such thing as time that it was a concept that earthlings only believe in and had grown accustomed to it. She remembers going up in the room in a spinning motion. They looked down and could see the San Bernardino Mountains.

Summary: The chief of a local children’s health camp, Anatoly Ivanovich K sat exhausted in the porch of the office building after another long fruitless search for his 5-year old son already missing for over 24 hours in the nearby impenetrable forest. Filled with painful thought he rose and retreated to his bedroom. Laying in bed awake the room was suddenly filled with an unexpected bright light from an unknown source. After looking around he could not locate the origin of the light. As he sat down back in bed he felt a presence next to him, after turning his head to the right he saw a bluish circle of light and within it a short gnome-like figure. Stupefied the camp chief watched the fairy tale like character, which he described as resembling an old man with a long white beard, wearing a red sash and a broad white belt with a red cap. The bizarre creature was distinctively visible within the bluish light. The old man smiled politely and greeted the witness and then said, “Your son will arrive tomorrow”. Then he beckoned to the witness with a miniature finger and rapidly walked towards the forest, at all times encased in an eerie bluish light. Despite his atheism Anatoly involuntarily crossed himself and almost unconsciously followed the old gnome-like creature into the forest. After entering the forest he found himself in an impenetrable darkness lit only by the glow around the short gnome. He followed the creature for about half an hour until they reached an impenetrable thicket. The witness, who knew the area very well, felt disoriented and confused, he did not recognize his surroundings. At this point the short gnome had already vanished. The witness was found dazed and shoeless wandering near the office building by camp associates. He had no memory of where he had spend half of the night. Happily his son did show up to the camp the next day, apparently unharmed.

At this location he was told that an alien would meet him and take him away in his flying saucer. He traveled to the location, but the alien told him “he was too good a man” and decided not to take him. Alan believed the alien’s intentions were “not good.”

Summary: After numerous reports of encounters with tall hairy bipeds in the area, one of the witnesses, Dave Shealy, who had collected hair samples and taken plaster casts of prints, was sitting in his trailer when heard a knock at the door. Answering he was confronted by two tall men wearing “English style felt hats” and sunglasses. They entered the trailer and produced badges, but Shealy could not see the agency on them, and began asking questions about the recent sightings regarding the hairy humanoids. They requested to see the hair samples and plaster casts. As soon as he brought the hair samples one of them took it and said they were going to have it analyzed and left. The next day around 0300A about 8 large helicopters that were circling over the nearby Turner River Swamp awakened him.

Summary: A local young man named Igor V. Kolomiets (involved in other encounters) encountered a strange humanoid figure that suddenly appeared in his bedroom out of thin air. The alien was very tall and was dressed in a black or gray loose-fitting overall. Facial details could not be discerned because it wore a hood or cowl that covered his head completely, and the room was also very dark. But Igor could see a greenish aura emanating from the alien’s body. The alien also radiated fear and the witness was immediately paralyzed, but was able to retain the ability to speak. The witness had been subconsciously ready for the contact and asked the visitor who he was and where he was from. Igor then heard inside his head in a cold, chilly and emotionless voice, “I am a representative of a civilization from the Canum Venaticorum constellation”. Igor was not frightened and began to ask additional questions, he asked, “How old is your civilization?” “Two million years. We are ahead of your civilization by 1000 years” Igor then asked, “Are you part of the Black League” (Apparently a group of negative civilizations from the Constellation Orion and others). The answer was a resounding yes. “What do you want from humans” asked Igor. He answered “We need vital space”. “What do you want from Irina?” (Igor’s friend who had also experienced contacts with a similar entity). The alien answered, “She is a powerful medium. We want her. We will take her soon”. (According to Igor’s claims Irina is actually a reincarnated alien being, by the name of Inzeada). Next the alien stopped answering questions and began speaking in a monologue, “Your civilization disturbs and hampers us. We did not find Irina by accident; we “pushed” her to you, because we are searching for control of you.” The alien paused a minute and then said, “Don’t interfere in the alien or UFO business, or death will await you. You will belong to my race”. After hearing this Igor became upset and yelled at the alien to “go to hell and get out”. At the end the alien transmitted a message in his brain, which the witness wrote in a piece of paper in the morning. It was purportedly a message from his “Government” directly to the witness.
