Date: early October 2001
Location:  Los Cipreses, Chile
Time: night
Summary: For a number of nights local residents reported encountering a strange, entity in their midst. It was reported to have been an amorphous “bird” responsible for the deaths of 32 geese, which were mutilated and exsanguinated under cover of darkness. Some witnesses claimed having seen the strange creature flying over their properties at night seeking shelter in a cave at the foot of a gorge near Los Cipreses. The cave covered by dense vegetation and located roughly half a mile from town provided an ideal shelter for the predator. Local farmers claimed to have found over 40, clawed prints, which were clearly marked on the soil.

Summary: Stevenson Fisher was walking along a deserted street when suddenly he heard a squeaking noise. Thinking it had been a mouse he looked down and around for one but did not see any. He started to walk again and then heard to sound again. Looking up, past the electrical wires he saw a large winged flying creature, with leathery wings. It swooped across the street and flew over an apartment building, turning to fly parallel past the roof. The astounded witness calculated that the creature must have had a wingspan of 24 ft, perhaps more. It then swooped into the woods behind the buildings and vanished from sight.

Summary: The witness was walking his dog along Notre Dame Blvd when he happened to look to his left across the street where a row of two story apartment dwellings was located. He then saw a “man” floating down through the air like when someone would if he was attached to a parachute. The only thing was there was no parachute above the figure. He hurried to the rear of the apartment complex and there was no sign of a man or a parachute. It had completely disappeared

Date:  October 2001
Location:  Devon, England
Time:  night
Summary:  Several friends driving around the area at night next to the beach noticed a black flash zoom across the front of a fence at the end of the car park. Both witnesses saw it simultaneously and it sent a shiver down their spine. The car’s headlights helped to show the object in the light and it was very black and moved very fast. They drove over to where it was but they did not see anything. A few weeks later the main witness was driving in the same area with a different friend. Needing to use the toilet he stopped the car and walked about 10 meters from the car. When he got back to the car his friend told him that he had been watching a black human shaped object moving over the other side of the car park. They then drove away from the area.

Date: October 6 2001
Time: late night
Marta was walking home to her village in Northern Portugal when she saw some strange lights flashing in the sky. At first she thought they were aircraft but the lights seemed to get bigger and she could not hear any engine sound. Then she saw a huge “sausage” shaped craft, about 100 metes long and with flashing red and yellow lights. The craft hovered over a field where there were some cows grazing. The lights seemed to startle the cows and suddenly one of the animals began to rise into the air as if the object was picking it up. The cow rose up and disappeared into a hole in the UFO. The object then shot away emitting a “whooshing” sound.

Keith Rylance telephoned police after he woke to screaming of housemate Petra Heller about 2330. Ms Heller and Mrs Rylance had been watching TV in a caravan annex at the side of the house. Ms Heller reported seeing Amy Rylance, 22, “floating through window carried by a beam of light.” Police Constable Maragna noted that the fly screen covering the window was ripped and the leaves of a bush near the window were wilted at the spot where the light beam was alleged to have picked up the woman. While suspicious police waited for crime scene officers to arrive, Mackay hospital staff telephoned the residence to say Mrs Rylance had been brought in after she was found muddy and confused near a service station. She told police she remembered watching television that night before waking in a strange room where she was confronted by a 1.8 meter tall being, “human like in shape.” The being wore a metallic diver’s suit with a helmet and a mask. She claimed the being told her she would be returned not to far from where she was taken “because the light was wrong.” Her fingernails have reportedly grown considerably after the incident.

Summary:  Two university students, Sonia & Maria were traveling by car in the area when suddenly in the distance they spotted a strange humanoid about 3 meters in height, very heavy set that appeared to move using very clumsy movements and was dressed in a shiny reflective uniform that emitted flashes of light that did not blind or bother the witnesses eyes. The astounded witnesses were able to calculate its height by comparing to the nearby orange trees, which were about 2.50 meters in height. They drove by the humanoid as it stood with its back to the road. That same night and in the same area witnesses saw bright spheres of light flying over the trees.

Date:  October 13 2001
Location:  Helix Oregon
Time:  2200
Summary:  The witness was returning home on the old Helix Highway when her car stopped, the lights and the engine went dead. She attempted to re-start the vehicle but nothing worked. As she was checking under the hood with a flashlight she noticed a large metallic object with lights approaching the vehicle. It was silent and began to hover over the highway. A hatch that made an eerie squeak opened on the side of the object and the witness was drawn in within a beam of blue light. Inside she saw a short, squat, human like figure, with whitish gray skin that appeared to have liver spots all over it. He made her take off her clothing and lied down on an “operating table.” The humanoid then proceeded to examine her genitalia. Her next memory was of waking up the next morning, fully clothed, and seated in the vehicle.

A 51-year-old security guard reported hearing strange sounds at a construction site that he was guarding. He described the sounds as similar to hearing children running and playing around. The sounds came from outside the stockpiles of wood. His companion, a pregnant stray dog, suddenly ran towards the back patio, while he listened, the noise seemed to get louder. Thinking there was robbers about; he picked up his flashlight and run towards the door. As soon as he opened the door, the dog ran out barking, ran a few feet then suddenly bounced right back. The animal was apparently terrified and was moaning in apparent pain. The witness then saw a bright oval shaped object floating around near the 55-gallon drums. The object was about 35 ft from the witness. The object moved at about 15 mph. It appeared to be some type of small airship. It did not emit air, noise, or it left a contrail. He felt a strange sensation in his body. Other guards reported seeing strange looking men dressed in gray roaming around the site. They were very elusive, and appeared to be looking for something.

Location:  Near Antofagasta Chile
Time:  2030
Summary:  A woman and her daughter were traveling by van from Calama to the coastal city of Antofagasta. As it began to get dark, the daughter suddenly jumped out of her seat and yelled at her mom to look outside. Looking she saw a flock of bizarre looking flying creatures, about 20 of them. It was too dark to distinguish any physical aspects. They resembled shadows and appeared to be oval in shape and grayish in color. They flew very fast and did not appear to fly in a straight pattern; they made wobbling movements in all directions. They appeared to be some type of living creatures. As she tilted her towards the windshield she noticed that they were traveling in a straight line, heading towards Calama. Her daughter noticed that one of the creatures approached the van, and she thought it was looking at her. Terrified the witnesses drove quickly away from the area.
