Summary:  Luis Alfredo Diaz reported hearing loud noises coming from the terraced patio where the kitchen was located, going to investigate he found his cat apparently dead with two obvious holes on the neck and some blood on the floor. Before finding the cat he had called his wife, Maria de Los Santos Barrios. As his wife stood in front of him a panic stricken look came over her face, turning around he was confronted by a bizarre 1-meter tall humanoid that had jumped to the center of the patio. The creature was described as thin, covered with dark hair, with large pointed ears that almost covered its face, it had very large eyes and extremely strong hind legs resembling that of a kangaroo. Terrified he ran to his son’s bedroom and carried him outside yelling for his neighbors. A search failed to locate anything.

The same witness involved in a similar encounter last year was again camping in the same area when he again heard a noise. Shining the light in the direction of the sound he again saw the same creature. The creature sat there crouched by the trees staring at the witness. The witness walked slowly towards it, he got to within 20 ft when it just jumped backward and disappeared. He described the creature as about five to six ft in height, gray in color. It was totally naked. It had human features, but more leathery, and its face was very wide, its eyes were huge and even though they reflected light, they still looked black, resembling two intensely black marbles. Its legs were very muscular, but turned backwards, like a bird. Other hikers in the area have reported encountering little brown men on some of the more isolated trails.

64-year old Raul Dorado was touring some fields when he heard a loud sound on two occasions, like a whirlwind, which drew his attention. The third time he saw something he describes as a green circle with three legs hovering over him. At that moment Dorado fell to the ground, and according to his story, he carried a shotgun, binoculars and a cellular phone, the latter, which was taken from his hand, and he could clearly see being sucked into the object, which was apparently at low altitude. His next recollection was seeing the object disappear toward the east. Dorado remained at the location for an hour before being able to rise and walk back to his car, returning to town in a state of shock. He had to be hospitalized. Later when calls were placed to the (abducted) cellular phone someone would pick up and heavy breathing could be heard. Later on the phone was apparently disconnected.

A man named Todd Sees went up the mountain to look for pre-season deer. He told his wife that he would be home by noon. He rode his 4-wheeler up the power line behind his home. He never returned. A search party composed of local police, state police and volunteers searched for Sees. The 4-wheeler was found on the top of the mountain near a power-line. Tracking dogs could find nothing to go on around the 4-wheeler. The search went on for 2 days and over 6 miles of mountain was covered from top to bottom. Then, in the evening of the 2nd day, his body was found in a hard to reach wooded area. He was wearing his underwear. He was emaciated—not bloated. He was pale and had an expression of horror on his face. When he went up the mountain he was fully dressed, boots, camo-vest, hat, socks, pants. 3 people, on one farm, said they saw a large round bright object just above the power-lines at the time of the disappearance. It was silent, it did not move for about 10 to 15 minutes. It suddenly went up and suddenly stopped. A light shone down and something was pulled up into the light. It then went straight up, hesitated again, and then went west over the Susquehanna River and out of sight. More specifically a farmer saw an object above Montour Ridge at the power lines, on top of the mountain, it was round and very still over the lines. Suddenly it moved what looked like a few hundred feet to the east, it stopped and a beam of blue and white light shone to the ground. What was seen next was very unnerving, he saw what appeared to be a man suspended in the light, he was being pulled up head first, he was moving his arms slowly in the light. What looked like a man was pulled up into the bottom of the craft. A few seconds later it started shuddering, then went west very fast, stopped briefly, and then went straight up and out of sight. Also three fishermen saw the craft. The FBI is supposedly also investigating. (Debated as a hoax, who would? and for what purpose?).

The witness was in his room when he heard a sound out in his backyard. He went out to see and there was nothing to see. When he came back to his room, there was a figure standing outside of his window, the figure was shadowy and it resembled a “typical” gray alien. He ran outside armed with his pellet gun and as he opened the door he saw it disappearing into the woods in front of the house. It was gray in color, hairless and the head was slightly larger than normal.

Summary:  Researcher Robert Lesniakiewicz was out in a wooded area looking for mushrooms when suddenly he felt an unusual quiet in the area, the birds seemed to stop singing and the insects had stopped chirping. Almost simultaneously he heard a whistle coming from somewhere in front of him that was initially high-pitched and then declined in volume. He noticed an “invisible” something or somebody that seemed to be parting some tree branches just about 30 meters from his location. Seconds later he heard a second identical whistle, this time coming from behind him. Lesniakiewicz had the distinct impression that someone invisible was stalking him and trying to surround him. He could feel whistles and movement all around him but could not see anything physical. After a few terrifying minutes everything suddenly returned to normal, with the familiar bird and insect sounds now back in focus. He searched around but could not find any logical explanation as to what had occurred. (Brings to mind the attack on a woman by invisible “aliens” in the Lorie Valley, France back in 1950).

Hearing a loud ruckus coming from the goat pen, 14-year Ariel Gonzalez summoned his guard dogs and went to investigate. As he approached the pen the dogs refused to go any further and began to emit an unearthly howl. Climbing on top of a small hill he looked inside the pen and was horrified to see a bizarre creature that had climbed on top of a goat. He described it as a short hairy humanoid with large glowing red eyes and shiny white sharp fangs protruding out of its mouth. The creature jumped down from the moribund goat and disappeared into some nearby woods. Several of the animals were found dead and bloodless and mysterious three toed footprints were found on the ground.

During a stormy morning the witness was driving to work when a flash of light made him look up over the nearby Fisher building about 50 stories up. The building has a big red ball lit up on top. Around it he saw several huge winged figures, to big to be birds. It appeared they were startled from the lighting as they flew in a boomerang type formation. They were surrounded by a yellow glow at first and then a red glow as they drifted southeast. They had appeared to take off from the top of the building.

The witness was out in the morning to collect mushrooms near the small village when he suddenly saw a big swarm of very large birds, containing more than 100 specimens. One of the “birds” left the group and sailed down to circle the witness for about five minutes or so. He described the strange bird, as having a long and baldhead with a long beak, and something prolonging the head stuck out form its hind skull. It really looked more like a pterodactyl than a bird. The only difference was that it was covered with feathers. It had the body of a penguin and a long neck, also short legs. It had a white breast and belly, while the rest of its body was totally black. Its wingspan was at least that of 7 ft.

The witness was spending the weekend with her boyfriend at his home and both were asleep when she was suddenly startled and woke up. She was feeling very anxious. As she glanced over towards the doorway she saw a silhouette. It was a being that she had seen before. The being was approximately four feet tall, with a large head as compared to its height and long arms that hung down approximately two feet. She wanted to wake up her boyfriend, but could not move. The being continued to look at her. She felt as if the being wanted her to come with him. She closed her eyes for what she thought was a short time and when she reopened them it was gone. She then went back to sleep.

Location: Caribbean Sea
Time: 02:30
Summary: Multi-light triangle shaped UFO over Caribbean Ocean, as viewed from a cruise ship. The following is an account of a real UFO sighting from the balcony of a cruise ship in the Caribbean in 2002. I’m not sure why I have waited this long to file this report, but once an ardent skeptic of most UFO tales, everything changed on a late summer night in the Atlantic Ocean. So although late in arriving, here is my story: On August 27, 2002, while cruising aboard the ship Carnival Pride, I woke up from a deep sleep, only to find myself oddly sitting on the edge of the bed, facing our cabin’s patio door. The drapes were drawn. I do not know what alerted me to arise from my sleep, nor can I explain what prompted me to go out onto the cabins private balcony that early morning. It was approximately 2:30 am. As I stepped out onto the balcony, I moved forward to the balcony railing. Our ship was roughly 200 miles out from land, with the first destination stop, being Half Moon Cay, Carnival’s private island. Our cabin was positioned on the port side of the ship, facing west, traveling in a southerly direction.

At first glance I was drawn to the front of ship, as the moon was out and nearly visible through a small bank of clouds. The illumination of the moon cascaded over the dark blue pristine waters below. Then I proceeded to glance upwards, staring straight port side. To my amazement I spotted a very large cluster of multicolored lights. One light appeared to be very bright and white at its center, while a series of smaller individual lights of blue, green and red surrounded it. I can’t be sure, but it appeared very much as if its shape were triangular. My best guess is that it was approximately 70 degrees off horizon and its scale, although difficult to determine would have covered a bald fist at arms length. By this determination, I gather that this object was very large and probably close. It did not move or make a sound. It merely hovered. A very slight misty cloud obscured about 25% of the visible object. It took a few minutes for my brain to register what it was seeing. I watched it for about 10 seconds. I was stunned! It definitely was not a plane. It was also unlikely a helicopter, especially given the distance from any land mass. I must admit, despite the initial state of shock, I was quite proud of myself, in that I immediately recognized the rare nature of this observance and quickly took action. It registered with me, that only a photo or a video of this object, would exonerate me of any embellishment, should I choose to share this unbelievable sight with another. So the following actions occurred within the frame work of 7-9 seconds: I quickly remembered I had left our camera bag, just inside the patio door, on the floor, out of the way of the normal traffic aisle. The small quarters of our cabin made this a logical storage place. Coincidentally, it would also offer me the shortest distance in retrieving the cameras and film this object. As I turned to open the door, I placed one foot inside our cabin, keeping my other foot outside, thereby propping the door open. I reached in for our video camera and as I backpedaled to the open balcony railing again, I opened the lens case, activated the camera, all at the same time. This is why I reference the time frame of 7-9 seconds. Why is this important? It will become perfectly clear with my next testimonial.

As I swung the camera upwards and toward the direction of the object, to my utter dismay, it was gone. It had simply vanished. I couldn’t believe it. Only a few seconds had passed. I was however, not deterred. I noticed off in the distance, a very small but bright light. At first I thought it might be a planet, such as Mars, which as I recall, was highly visible in the Western sky at that time of the year. I still decided to zoom in and film it, in the event it might have been what I watched in total astonishment a few seconds earlier, and twenty-times larger! I took nearly two minutes of video. I used the railing cap to steady my camera. While I realize, that a digital camera, zoomed to a near infinite range, can cause square pixilation’s and that some subjects, illuminating brightly as a source, can create false images, such as a rainbow effect with twinkles of various colored lights; what I saw, was something far different. It seemed to have a single image of light, countered by the surprise emergence of a second (different) colored light from behind. Then a third colored light. I don’t think Mars would react that way. At that point, I felt I had recorded a sufficient amount of tape to make a convincing case for something obviously unidentified as nothing short of an unexplained, unidentified flying object (UFO). It was now time to wake up my wife. While keeping our two children sleeping, I would soon add a second set of eyes, in a sanity check, to see if I was imagining the whole thing. I went inside our cabin and awoke her. Despite her groggy state, like a good trooper, she trudged out on the balcony with me, to add an equal witness to this sighting. While she manned (woman) a set of binoculars, I continued to film the subject. Once again and much more clearly, a red object immerged from behind the larger brighter object, as if hovering or orbiting around it.

The mystery only became more bizarre, as within minutes of the sighting, a group of three ships floating on the water, off in the distance, suddenly appeared. I know for certain that they were not there before. After discovering them, my film shows at least one of them floating on the surface. To conclude, I can only surmise the following: Did (what ever it was) possess some artificial intelligence that flagged it of my observing presence on deck? If so, did it react by speeding away at an incredible rate (as I’ve heard of, in other cases) to avoid a video camera image that clearly would have rivaled the one I eventually captured? To film it at maybe 1-2 miles away vs. perhaps 20 miles? I’ll never know. And what significance did the surprise appearance of three smaller vessels on the ocean have to do with this experience. I have enclosed snapshot pictures or frames of the video I shot. I have kept the video to myself. As of this writing, after 4 ½ years, only 6-7 other people know of our UFO encounter.
