Summary: A group of friends decided to go out for a walk around the village, it was very dark but they had two flashlights with them. After about 30 minutes into their excursion over fields and hedges, and along dirt tracks, they found what seemed to be a bridleway. As they set out along it, one of the two torches ran low on battery power, with only one light it was difficult to see where they were walking. Suddenly two of the people at the head of the line fell in a deep hole, the others dragged one out, but the other one remained injured at the bottom of the hole. The hole was adjacent to a cottage with large iron gates. And as they looked up, they all saw a hazy silhouette of a figure standing just behind the iron gates staring directly at them. They yelled at the figure, asking for help. But when they looked back at it again the figure had disappeared. They finally managed to get their injured friend out of the hole and dress his wounds.

Location: Maryland, exact location not given
Time: night
Summary: Mary C and a friend were driving down a street and it was getting dark. As they were reaching the end of the street, Mary noticed a pair of “glowing” eyes. At first she thought it was just a dog or cat. The eyes were staring out of a hollowed out tree trunk that had been that way for many years. As they approached the tree, whatever it was began to hop across the street like a kangaroo. But it was not a kangaroo. It had back legs like a kangaroo and small forelegs and it had a snout resembling an anteater and very red eyes gleaming in the light. As it crossed the street, it stared at the car, probably in fear. It was hairy like a rat and it stood about three to four ft tall as it hopped. The creature was seen on two nights.

Time:  around 12 a.m.
Summary:  TACOMA, Wash. — A Washington man claims he saw an alien creature at a dairy farm. The anonymous man said on Monday that he heard unusual noises coming from the animals and that he decided to go out and investigate. “This happened in October of 2000, at around 12 a.m.,” he wrote on MUFON. “I got up and left the house very quietly.” When he checked on the cows, he adds, he didn’t find anything out of the ordinary. He explains the strange thing was the cows wouldn’t eat. “I started to feed them the grains. They didn’t have an interest in the food. They were pacing back and forth and cramming to one side of the building.” The Tacoma man reports that he felt as though the cows were scared of something. Reportedly, as he took a few steps forward and fearing to find a dead cow, something else caught his attention. “Well, there was no dead cow. But I noticed something weird at the end of the hall.” What he saw, says the man, paralyzed him. A 4-foot-tall big headed humanoid covered in a black and grey skin. “Its eyes were almond shaped. Slanted. It was looking at me. I couldn’t move. I couldn’t yell nor talk,” he said about the alleged encounter. “Finally I was able to run and went home, very scared.” The man says that he didn’t inform his family or the authorities about the creature. “I think about that encounter all the time now,” he said.

42-year old janitor Jesus Barrientos had gone up to the roof to arrange some boxes. The area was well lit. As he turned halfway around he saw what appeared to have been some sort of bird on top of a doorway. Thinking that it was a bat he tried to shoo the animal away, but as he approached it, he realized that it was a strange animal with an elongated face, bulging eyes, sharp teeth and it was making squealing sounds like a puppy. Terrified and unable to move, Barrientos noticed that the creature had long ears, was black in color, was about 1 meter in length, and had large bat-like wings. The witness broke into a run and at the same time the creature flew off into the night.

Joaquin Aranda was out hunting in a field near his ranch when he spotted on top of a nearby hill, a luminous figure that as it walked, emitted flashes of bright light. Aranda then told his dog to go towards the strange figure. The animal walked a few paces then ran away into the brush. Lacking options and a little frightened the witness fired a shot into the air. Instead of being intimidated the luminous figure began walking towards the witness. At this point Aranda fired towards the figure that ignored the shot and apparently was not harmed and kept approaching him. Frightened Aranda dropped the rifle and fled from the area. Returning to the scene the next day accompanied by his sons, Aranda found the rifle propped up against a tree, and no tracks or footprints around it.

As Garrido drove by, the figure lunged towards the car, causing the witness to slam on the brakes. He noticed that the figure had amorphous facial features, with two concave cavities where the eyes would have been and a small dot in the area of the nose. Terrified the witness accelerated and left the area at high speed.

Fresia Berlina Vega was playing with 10-year old Valentina the daughter of a local schoolteacher on the school grounds when they saw in the sky a bright star-like light suddenly appear. The light suddenly descended towards the witness emitting bright-multicolored flashes of light. Within the light the two witnesses could see a huge round object that hovered outside the school perimeter at a low altitude. Suddenly a thunder clap-like noise was heard and a bright beam of light emerged from the object illuminating both witnesses. Fresia felt a cold wave envelope her body. The beam of light then retreated back into the object and another thunderclap was heard. The object then remained above the witnesses for a few more moments in which Fresia again felt a definite change of temperature, she felt as if her head seemed to swell up. In a moment she was looking directly at the object in a state of total relaxation. She felt a prickling sensation invade her entire body. Meanwhile Valentina felt the same presence and complained of a headache and discomfort in her nose, later she was to suffer from insomnia. While under the beam of light Fresia had the distinct impression that a photograph had been taken of her. As the object moved away towards the nearby cemetery both witnesses felt a slight tremor in the earth. Fresia reported some beneficial aftereffects after the encounter, a persistent back pain went away, but she also experienced irregularities with her menstrual cycle. She felt more relax and at ease and monetary problems seem to have gone away. She would have peculiar “dreams” in which, several short human-like figures, dark in color and with large heads would approach her and ask her how she was feeling. They reassure her that things were going to improve in her life. She further described the beings as about 1.50m in height, wearing thick soled boots. She is convinced that she will see them again some day.

The witness had gone on a fishing trip in an isolated area with a friend. Around dusk he decided to go into the brush in order to obtain some firewood. Soon he heard a low pitch hum and yelled out at his friend that said he could not hear it. All of the sudden it disappeared. After awhile they were cooking and heard some rustling sounds in the brush but they ignored it and went back to fish. Later on they were hungry again and got up to heat the pots, as they got up they noticed a being standing just outside of the bush. It was described as small, about 3-4 feet high, with big black eyes, it had lips and a moving mouth and what the witnesses thought was a “vagina.” Its skin was very light gray, with light brown patches over its head and chest. The being stood there staring at the witnesses who were compelled to just stand there and look back. After a few minutes they heard the humming sound again. They looked back at the humanoid that raised its hand and seemed to smile. It then walked off into the bush and then the humming disappeared again. The witnesses decided to go back to sleep and left in the morning.

Summary: My husband and I were lying in bed and we heard our vertical blinds in the kitchen make a noise like someone had just pushed them aside. I said :” What was that ?” and my husband ((name deleted)) said ” I don’t know”. I then he heard a strange tone, 2 of them high then low, and then saw a red light shine in the hallway. THen a white light appeared. I started to say ” What is that ” only the ” “what is” was said in the bedroom at 1:15 and the ” that ” word was said in the kitchen at 7:45am. I said ” oh my god , Why are we in the kitchen now and why am I finishing my sentence in here. We felt as though we were dropped into the kitchen and in a big hurry. We were rushing around trying to fix breakfast and don’t know why… We don’t eat breakfast right when we get up. Where did all the time go ? Where were we ? What was that tone and lights about ? Did we go somewhere and don’t remember ? Our three year old son said later that day that ” The mean men were coming back when its dark outside again.” I asked him if the men drove here and he said no they come from up there and pointed to the sky.,………..WHen he was 2 years old he would wake up almost every night at the same time and talk to someone in his room It was like he having a conversation. We would laugh and then once screamed bloody murder like something was hurting him. We went in his room and he clung to us for the rest of the night and said he was scared of them. WHo ? He said those guys. When he was 1 week old we went in his room to feed him and he was in a totally different position than when we left him. THis happened about 5 or 6 times. He also developed a red triangular shaped mark on the back of his leg and it stayed there for 1 to 2 months before going away. We never did figure out what it was. It was about 1 Inch in size and he was about 8 months old. My twenty year old daughter who lives in LA and is going to college would insist that she had another mommy and daddy that lived way over there and would point to the sky when she was 2 – 5 years of age. She even had names for them and could not have made them up because they were very odd and very hard to pronounce. We lived in Yakima , Wa at the time out side of town on 5 acres. I have had quite of few weird things happen in the last three years, like firecrackers going off in my bedroom and lights turning them selves off and on. I pick up strange conversations on the phone quite often too. One day I was sitting on the floor in my bedroom and heard a electrical zapping noise coming from behind me. I turned around to see my plant zapping electricity from one upper branch to a lower one. It burned it off the main stalk and left soot. It looked at though it had been burned off. The branch fell to the ground and was smoldering. I hope to hear from you soon and maybe you can make some sense of this. Its so weird…We have never seen an alien or been on a ship but feel as though I have and don’t know why. Where did the 7 hours go? Was our son left here by himself ? THanks for listening………. ((names and contact data deleted))
When I was 15 I was walking home with my girlfriend at 9:30 pm in Ellensburg, WA and I saw something moving in the sky, with my peripheral vision. I looked up and saw nothing. Once again about 1 minute later I saw something moving and turned my head I looked up and saw nothing. I kept walking and once again saw something moving out of the corner of my eye. THis time I kept my vision on the object and slowly turned my head and saw an enormous aircraft carrier in the sky. It was covered in lights that looked just like the stars. I told ((name deleted)) what I saw and told her to look out of the corner of her eye and she would see something moving very slowly. On her forth attempt she zeroed in on it. She grabbed my hand and screamed ” oh my GOd”‘ . We started running for home and then decided to stop and watch it under a tree. We sat down shaking very hard from being so scared and watched it for about 1/2 hour. It circled the valley of Eburg 3 times very slowly and them disappeared as it turned to go back up higher in the sky. It looked just like the sky so you could not see it if you were just looking up. THe lights on it would change with the stars as it passed them so it didn’t attract attention to a star being covered up. The reason you couldn’t see it if you were just looking at the sky was because of this. It was so big , like 2000 747’s hooked together . I don’t know how high up it actually was but I would say 60,000 to 100,000 feet up. I have had so many weird things happen that I can’t begin to tell you all of them. .. THanks , ((name deleted))

Summary: A family of four that included a 19-year old daughter and a 13-year-old son had gone out to picnic in a rugged abandoned strip mine area. As they walked towards the nearby edge of the mining gorge, after parking their vehicle, they noticed a bright flash of light from behind a nearby hill, and then there was a loud sound resembling exploding firecrackers. The 13-year old boy hopped on his bicycle and began approaching the area. Being dangerous terrain, his father prevented him from going any further. Again the loud exploding sounds were heard. The family then arrived at the edge of the strip-mining gorge and soon noticed two strangely dress figures at the bottom of the gorge, which appeared to be digging or surveying the terrain. As they watched the two figures another bright flash of light emanated from behind a path directly above the figures. As the witnesses approached the edge of the gorge, the two figures suddenly turned around and stared at them. The family then noticed that the figures were wearing dull gray colored coveralls. They seemed to be wearing some sort of masks that prevented the witnesses from seeing any facial features. But the girl thought that their heads were somewhat larger than normal. Apparently startled by the sudden intrusion of the family, the two figures began to leave the area using very quick and inhuman movements, one of them traversing a distance of 300 meters in a matter of seconds. The other figure, using several vertical jumps of more than 30 meters each, climbed the rocky wall of the gorge. The two figures were now level with the witnesses and standing across the gorge about 600 yards away. At this point the bright flashes behind the path increased in intensity and in numbers. The father then approached the edge of the gorge and saw more flashes at the bottom of the gorge. Suddenly two more similarly garbed beings appeared, these seem to glide about 50 cm above the ground and were carrying something very bright in their hands. These two new figures stopped briefly and looked at the witnesses, then followed the path, which the other two humanoids had taken. Their bodies appear to give off bright flashes of light. Suddenly one of the figures, again using very quick movements, glided back down the bottom of the gorge and seem to search for something, in seconds it returned back to join the others. At this point the family became hysterical, the mother feeling an intense pressure in her eardrums. The two younger members were screaming hysterically and all felt drained of energy. Suddenly a metallic gray oval shaped craft appeared behind the 4 humanoids, and descended to about a meter from the ground. The four humanoids then disappeared into the object in an unknown manner, since no opening was seen. The family thought that the object must have been larger inside as to what appeared to be in the outside. The craft then suddenly flashed and shot away at angle disappearing at tremendous speed.

Summary: Anthony Walsh was leaving his girlfriend’s house and was walking along Duckworth Street when he heard a moan type sound and saw a flash of light that blinded him. When his vision returned he was inside a capsule shaped craft. Inside he was met by a tall being of a metallic gray hue. It had no ears or mouth, but otherwise humanoid in appearance. It had tiny eyes that seemed to penetrate the witness mind and exploit it. Inside the object it was dull with no decorations. On one side there was a control panel with shiny knobs, which flashed silver gray as he approached them. There were no windows or door seals. There was also a constant vibrating hum in the air. In the center of the capsule the witness saw a large rotating silver cube that seemed to defy gravity. The cube changed colors to red, and then strange symbols became visible. Soon after the incident the witness suffered from severe tooth pains and a strong body odor of an unknown source.

Summary: Slow moving horizontal tear shaped craft over Brandon, County Durham, no deviation or erratic movement My wife asked me to go to the shops for some essentials, as I left the shop I saw the craft moving exceptionally slowly from the SW to NNE, it was shaped like a horizontal teardrop, and was yellowy orange in colour, it did not flash, but had a faint orange glow like aura, I asked the shop assistant to have a look, and she didn’t know what to make of it, I then proceeded home where I have a 525x Telescope, I was in a position where the craft didn’t leave my gaze the whole journey home, once home, I asked my wife to look at it, but she was sceptical, she admits that there are no aircraft that she knows of that are shaped as that was, but didn’t want to say what she saw, I grabbed my telescope as the craft was moving out of sight behind some houses, I went out the back door to continue viewing it, but my view was obscured by some trees, I could still make it out through the branches, but my telescope was now pointless, I viewed it for a few more seconds before it was blocked by more trees and then houses, at that time there was no known aircraft in the sky and the craft made no sound, it was a cloudy night with a high cloudbase, with a frost haze in the air, I was shocked to find out my parents had also seen a similar craft from their hotel balcony, whilst on holiday in Greece a couple of months prior to my sighting, both description and characteristics of the craft were similar, I showed them a reconstruction of what I saw, and they agreed it was similar to what they saw. I served in the military for 15 years, I never saw anything like that, nor have since. Duration: 18 mins

Summary:  Sue O’Connor encountered and established a telepathic link with what purported to be their regular visitor—a female Yowie. The creature conveyed that it resided in the “Black Dimension” but was a benign “being of light” which was drawn to her and her garden. It conveyed its disapproval of the word “Yowie” and seemed to say it was “of the bunyip race.” Among other things it informed Sue it was immensely old—essentially immortal.

Summary:  The witness, Mr. Boris Ustinov was returning home in a taxi from Moscow Square but after passing the Central market and Sevastopolskaya Street a police patrol stopped the taxi. While the driver and the inspector argued Boris decided to sneak away and without being seen he disappeared into a dark alley and into a narrow street. After 15 minutes of walking he began to feel apprehensive and noticed a very long fence along the road. He stopped and was surprised at the total silence around him, he did not hear cars, dogs barking or anything else, and the silence was absolute. Even the air was still; he could only hear the sound of his own breath. He began walking along the strange fence and was surprised to notice another fence on the opposite side of the narrow street made out of what appeared to be unprocessed stones, like the other “fence”. At times he saw low wooded doors, with wrought iron gates. Behind the fence he saw some roofs of unknown buildings. He suddenly realized that there was a total lack of light anywhere, neither electric or candle powered, there were no shadows, and he could only see a star covered sky and felt oppressive silence all around him. He walked in total bewilderment around the area for at least four hours, afraid to knock on any of the doors. When he turned a corner he saw about 2 meters away a small entity, about 40-50cm in height, with pupil-less eyes that gave off a bright red light, whatever it was it resembled a dwarf. Terrified, Boris froze in place. The dwarf stood motionless like a statue. They were facing each other in silence. Apparently the dwarf was also amaze to see him. The dwarf had large ears, a curved nose, wrinkled “old” skin and shiny red eyes. He had an elongated body with small legs and small hands. Suddenly the alien displayed a broad ironical smile, showing a row of curved and “wet” teeth. Horrified Boris ran from the area not going where he was going, running next to the strange stone fence with its intricate network of designs. The whole time he could hear small footsteps behind him. Suddenly he reached the end of the fence into some bushes, having no choice he jumped over the dense wall of black-green bushes. As he did he fell onto the pavement of a street and almost under the wheels of a passing trolley, he could now hear the normal sounds of the city as his hands and legs trembled. He returned in the morning to the area and only found an old abandoned cemetery behind the dense green wall of brush.
