Summary:  Two peculiar strangers again visited the witness to a previous UFO encounter. These two were different from the others. They were at least six-feet tall, very bony, with head, hands and feet out of proportion to the rest of the body. They wore gray suits that seemed to be “oily”, had black ties and hats plus wrap around sunglasses that they never took off. When questioned about the glasses they remarked that they could see perfectly well. Their ears stood out from their heads and their skin was pale white, whereas their fingernails were gray in color. They never removed the hats during their visit. And throughout the whole time only one of them spoke. When asked for ID’s they displayed “silver” cases that contained a photo an unusual symbol, plus their names in small print. Upon entering the kitchen they asked the witness to please unplug the microwave, they also told him to turn the computer off. The two Persian cats were going crazy dashing around the room, and trying to get out of the window, which was closed. Each man carried a briefcase with an inverted L shaped handle. The man that did all the talking asked to see the witness unusual watch, he then removed from his briefcase four small containers, each had a different colored top. Opening two he proceeded to pour the contents over the watch. He told the concerned witness that no harm would come to the watch. He was given $250 for the watch and told that they would give him the rest later. He told them that he was moving soon, to this they replied “We know, don’t worry, we can find you if we want to.” They soon departed without the common courtesies, staring blankly at the witness as he extended his hand. Once again the witness hurried to the bedroom window only to find, as before, no sign of either man departing, nor cold any vehicle be heard leaving. After the visit the witness felt drained, had a severe headache that lasted for two days and a rash on his arms, face and chest.

Location. Cerro Del Hierro, Sevilla Spain
Date: January 2001
Time: 1700
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, who 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.

Location. La Mina, El Yunque, Puerto Rico
Date: January 2001
Time: 1900
Roberto Hernandez and other family members were camping in an isolated area of the mountain and were exploring some old abandoned mines when they heard loud grunting sounds coming from an undetermined source. Going outside the mine to look they perceived a strange humming sound in the air and saw mysterious flashes of light overhead. The lights flew over and in front of the witnesses at very high speed. Later, walking back to their camping site their path was illuminated by beams of light that seemed to originate from the top of the trees. They also heard the sound of footsteps among the brush, apparently from several “persons” moving about. Later while in their tents they were unable to sleep. Soon they noticed the presence of numerous large black rats with large red luminous eyes that came out of nowhere. They were about 25 of these bizarre “rats” that seemed to frolic around the campgrounds totally unafraid. Suddenly the witnesses noticed a bright sphere of light that was “bouncing” up and down from car to car as if inspecting them. (The cars were at the nearby parking area.) At this time they also heard the loud grunting sounds again (similar to the ones they had heard before). Afraid, most of the family members closed themselves inside their tents except for Mr. Hernandez that remained guarding the tents with a flashlight. At this point the rats began climbing the tent ropes apparently in an attempt to get inside. Suddenly the sphere of light that had been hovering above the vehicles began approaching Mr. Hernandez, expanding as it did so; it suddenly transformed itself into a tall luminous human-like figure that floated just above the ground. The feet were not visible as that part of the body had apparently not materialized completely. The figure was that of a tall man wearing a long gray tunic with an unknown type of design around the chest area. The man seemed to have a luminous diadem on his head. The very had very fine chiseled features and long brown hair. As he approached the tents he stopped, looked at the rats and made a quick “wave” like gesture with his right hand, suddenly the rats scattered in all directions and vanished. The man then stared at the witness that perceived a mental message telling him to relax and to go to sleep that they were going to be safe. A sort of stupor overcame Hernandez and he went to sleep. Moments later his wife, Iris Mendez, and daughter Ivelisse that were still in their tents noticed the presence of a very tall figure silhouetted behind the tent. Both women then began floating in mid-air; Mrs Mendez rose up to the ceiling then fell back down slowly. The silhouetted figure remained standing outside. Ivelisse felt some type of mental communication and felt a sense of calm, suddenly her body rose up again and she lost consciousness. Mrs Mendez then apparently also went to sleep.

Summary:  Several family members living in a remote location heard strange screams or yells coming from the woods resembling that of a woman crying out in pain, terrified they called the police and went out to investigate. The police searched the area with high-powered lights but could not find anything. Some time later they heard the screams again and again the police was summoned and again nothing was found. Next time they decided not to call the police again. Days later the dogs were heard barking in the backyard, a female witness points the flashlight out back and sees looking back at her 2 huge red eyes. She focuses the light on them but can’t make out the figure. She yelled out for the additional family members but the eyes disappeared. She vaguely sees a dark figure run into the woods. A couple of months later around 0300A the main witness taking a stroll near the horse trailer when he saw a huge figure, with gray fur and black patches, the hair seemed to be wiry. The terrified witness froze in place and fixed the flashlight on the creature, which moved behind the trailer and vanished. Day’s later neighbors saw a similar creature in their backyard.

The owner of a house in the O’Higgins neighborhood was awakened by the ruckus of the chickens she kept in a cage in her backyard. When she went out to check the problem, four creatures confronted her. The creatures were apparently trying to open the birdcage, and were working in unison. The beings were about 4-feet tall and hairy in appearance. Two of the creatures worked to open the cage while the other tow stood and watch. Overcoming her fear she grabbed a club and tried to scatter the creatures away. But these simply ignored her, and ran by her so quickly that they seemed to be gliding. She felt a rush of air as they went by. She screamed for her husband, but as he ran out of the house he could find any trace of the creatures. They had apparently vanished into thin air. Inside the chicken cage they found six dead chickens and a dead rooster, all left apparently bloodless. The three guard dogs in the house were apparently oblivious to the presence of the four intruders in the backyard.

While walking down a street the witness noticed something that appeared in his peripheral vision. Something was glowing to his right, and about 30 feet in the air. As soon as his vision focused on the object, the glowing orange yellow fire transformed into a ball shaped object about the size of a basketball. This quick change took place after a small explosion. There was no shockwave or noise. The ball then transformed itself into rings that emerged simultaneously. The rings were 3 or more feet in size and they kept their shape as they flashed and strobe. These rings then formed into a perfectly circular disk about 4 ft across. He had a full frontal view of the disk. It hovered stationary at the roof area of the house and was perfectly circular. He saw shadowy figures inside the object that appeared to be 2 feet long and narrow. The sides of these shadowy figures were wavy. The object hovered for a few seconds then vanished at very high speed into the sky.

After dinner, the witness, Mauro Diniz Brumana went to his backyard to pick up some fruit from his grove. While climbing on a mango tree he noticed a very strong red light. Thinking it was a car or a fire he descended the tree and walked over to investigate the source of the light. Climbing over the neighbor’s backyard wall he noticed a huge disc shaped object, around 10 meters in diameter, with bright red lights around the edge and a cupola on top that appeared to have landed on the neighbor’s field. Near the object stood two humanoid about 1.20 meters in height wearing tight-fitting metallic outfits. Unable to move, he stood watching the scene for 10 minutes.
