Summary: The main witness was walking his dog with her partner, the baby in the buggy and their 5-year old son. They were in a small parcel of ancient woodland in the middle of the estate. He was holding the dogs lead and was just saying to her partner how she always felt being watched in the area when the dog suddenly zoomed off into the some trees barking. The dog is a Fox Terrier, so the witness let him go thinking it was hunting something. She followed the dog into the bushes to see what he was after and was surprised to find a man dressed all in black standing there. The witness felt a bit embarrassed that the dog had barked at the stranger, so she mumbled an apology and turned to go. As she turned he suddenly realized that the stranger had no face, no features at all, he was just black all over. The witness spun back around and the strange figure was gone. She had been standing about 3 ft away from the figure. She ran out of the trees and told her partner that there was a man in the woods. Terrified they then left the area.

Summary: “The story I wanted to tell was back in 2004. It was October and it would have been homecoming week for the University of Northern Iowa. So my sister was attending school there and she needed money to go out for homecoming to go out and party. So I was taking some money up to her. She said she had to be at a certain place by 11 o’clock PM because it was 5 dollars to get in. If it was after 11 o’clock she would have to pay 15 dollars. So my friend and I left Cedar Rapids at about 7:30PM and Cedar Falls is just about an hour or so away. So we head up to Cedar Falls and when I got up on the exit, I realized I took the wrong exit. I could see the UNI Dome (NOTE: The UNI-Dome is a multi-purpose stadium, on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa, in Cedar Falls, Iowa) from where I was. It was off in the distance. I was in the middle of like four cornfields separated by the road. I had a stop sign. The crossroad did not. And my radio was really hot. It was kind of hooked up lazily, so I took the face of my CD player off. All of a sudden I looked up into the sky and I said, ‘Oh look, Mindy, a shooting star!’ And I pointed at it. She looks. And as soon as I pointed at it, it starts coming towards us. So from what looked like a shooting star off in the distance maybe takes about ten seconds to get to us and by the time it was a hundred feet away from us. I could tell it was a big, really beautiful blue diamond. It looked like it was shaped out of glass. It was really smooth. The edges were rounded instead of clunky. It came straight down in front of us and landed in the cornfield that was across the street and to the left. And I say landed because there was no boom, there was no noise, there was no explosion. Whatever it was, it made a landing. She looked at me and said, ‘that wasn’t a shooting star.’ I said, ‘no it wasn’t.’ I said, ‘what time is it?’ I don’t know why I asked the time after seeing something like that. She said, ‘8:51’ I remember that specifically because it would make sense after we left at 7:30PM. So I had to cross the road because I could see the UNI Dome off in the distance. And I wanted to point out that if I was to measure with my fingers across the windshield how big this thing was. Right now I’m doing it to a light pole. I would say it was about as big as a light pole, about 4 inches with my fingers. This was a pretty nice night. So I had to cross the road. There’s no radio on. I look to the left and on top of the corn it’s just illuminated, a really light blue. And that’s all I remember… I don’t remember talking to her. I don’t remember anything except for saying ‘what the heck?’ I used a different word but I said ‘we’re not getting any closer. We’re not getting any closer.’ So I was like driving and driving and staring at the UNI Dome. I don’t remember her saying anything. I just remember staring at the UNI Dome and driving and saying out loud, ‘we’re not getting any closer.’ The next thing I know, I’m at a stop light. I took a left, I took a right. I’m at the UNI Dome and my sister’s gone. I call my sister to come down and get the money. She had fallen asleep. She comes down and she’s acting all mad at me and I said ‘what’s wrong with you, I just brought you the money? I just drove from out of town to bring you some money.’ She said ‘I was trying to get in there by 11 o’clock so I only had to pay 5 dollars. I got ten minutes to get there by 11.’ So from 8:51 when we saw this thing to ten minutes to 11, I was driving straight up to the UNI Dome. I was staring at it. I could see it off in the distance. It looked like I would probably be there in ten minutes. This is just crazy because I don’t remember anything. When I think about it, I feel like the UNI Dome was projected in front of me. This should have been at the most a three hour trip but we didn’t get home until after midnight. When I was thinking back, I don’t remember the drive home. I remember a week later calling Mindy and saying, I want to talk to you about the thing… and she was like, ‘what are you talking about?’ I was like, ‘about what we saw on the way to the UNI Dome.’ And she was like quiet for a minute and then she just started freaking out and she kept saying, ‘The Light! The Light! The Light! I have to go, I can’t talk about this’ and hung up. And still to this day, she’s a good friend of mine, she will not talk about it. So that was a really crazy experience.”

Summary: The witness was driving home when he noted what first appeared to be a fire on a ridge nearby. As he drove, he closer to the “fire” and realized that it was not a fire at all but a series of three reddish orange lights affixed to the bottom of a huge triangular object. He neared an intersection and exited his car to watch the metallic craft as it approached from the north and moving directly towards him. He noted his fear and started to run from his car but realized that there was nowhere to go. As the giant object passed overhead, it blocked out all the stars and he estimated the size to be some 300 ft in length. The bottom of the craft was somewhat illuminated from the three flame-like symmetrical appendages on the bottom and he described what appeared to be “ribs” running across the bottom of the object. As it passed directly overhead, he was exposed to something which seemed to reverberate through his body. He stated that he felt many sensations all at once, but no description could be found for what he actually felt. The object also made a pulsating/drumming like noise which also passed throughout his body. The object passed him and suddenly turned west and moved behind nearby hills. The witness reported a metallic taste in his mouth and a nose bleed. Later he found his face and back slightly sunburned and his hair falling, he also fell into a temporary lethargic state. There were 15 minutes of missing time noted.

Summary: While on an evening stroll on the hills of the Himalayan ranges the witness spotted a strange umbrella-shaped figure with what appeared to be legs hovering slightly above the ground. The figure was grayish white in color and was emitting a hissing sound. It was first moving down from a hilltop and after a meter or two it began to move horizontally at the very same moment the witness attempted to chase it. It ultimately disappeared into a crater filled valley.

Summary: On Monday night the witness suddenly woke up to see a very tall slender being standing at the door of her bedroom, which, by the way, had been closed and locked on the inside. She screamed for her husband, who, when he got there had to open the door, and swears it was closed when he got there. After she calmed down, they went outside to see if there was any sign of any one getting in the house through their window but they did not find any sign of where anyone might have gotten in but they did find, directly in line with the window and about 20 ft from it, an almost perfect circle in the grass about six and a half feet in diameter, with some of the grass being matted down and some of it. The main witness decided to take some photos of the scene but kept getting a strange feeling that someone was watching and wasn’t happy with her taking the pictures. She also noticed that none of her dogs would go near the circle. The next day she went out to take more pictures and her dogs still would not go near the circle and she discovered that the color of the grass in the circle was much lighter than it had been the night before. While she was doing this her husband discovered an identical circle about 50 yards away. Something else that was noticed the day after the original occurrence was that the hinges to the door were broken off; in fact one was completely missing. The main witness also has the distinct feeling that this is not the first time something like this has happened to her, though she has no memory of it.

Summary: A 35-year old male and his girlfriend were unhooking a trailer in his backyard and after lifting the trailer off the hitch he leaned back onto the back of the Durango to stretch his back. As he looked up towards the north sky he began to focus on a flying object moving south directly towards their direction right above their location. It was about 30 ft above the tree tops. As the witness attempted to categorize the object, he immediately realized what it could not be. After focusing on the object longer he realized that it seemed to be a living thing. It appeared to be a solid object, gliding, soaring above the witnesses. At this he began to scream at his girlfriend who was in front of him. She looked up and saw it was passing directly over them and towards a nearby streetlight. Then they could not see it anymore. They described the creature as having a wingspan of about 20ft wide and resembling a flying reptile.

Mrs. M, who ran a small food retail establishment from her home, was watching television facing towards the street, hoping for a client to stop by, when suddenly the television reception began to fail and there was sudden heavy interference, this was surprising since the street was empty and there wasn’t any vehicles around that could cause the problem. Suddenly a very tall figure walked by the front door of her house. The strange figure had very pale white skin, extremely white, according to the witness. The figure turned to look at her, the stranger’s stare was so intense and penetrating that she could not move, she wanted to yell at her sister who lived next door, but was unable to utter a sound. The stranger suddenly disappeared and at the same time the television returned to normal, but she was not able to move for at least 5 minutes.
