Location: Alta, Norway
Time: 9 – 10 pm
Summary: “From Alta it is reported that Thursday evening September 17, from 9-10 o’clock a strange and so far unexplained luminous phenomenon was observed by many people and from many quarters. The sky was completely overcast and it was full dark when a luminous point like a very large star appeared to the east over Elvebakken, proceeded over Bosekop, disappeared behind Skoddevarre, came out again at Kvaenvik and after several other movements disappeared in the direction of Talvik. The light was white as a rule but shifted in part over to red and blue. It was also observed by binoculars from the small steamboat ‘Sina’. Naturally it was guessed to be from an airplane. The light moved at various heights and as a rule without particularly great speed, except when it disappeared.”

Summary: The witness was at a local trash dump looking for old discards when he suddenly heard a “musical” humming sound. Turning around he then saw a strange craft hovering above a fence and partially above the street in front of a church. The object was gray in color with a high dome on top and a slight dome on the bottom. An opening, like two sliding doors, then appeared. Then two short figures emerged and took positions each on one side of the object, more came out until there were eight abreast. The beings were humanoid in appearance with round heads. They suddenly began to sing in a beautiful harmony albeit in an unknown language. When they finished the doors to the craft opened again and they all filed back inside of it. The object then went up slowly and gradually disappeared over the church.

Summary: While riding his tricycle along a pathway near this city, the witness, a young boy, took a hard tumble, and thinks to this day that he probably broke his arm. After he’d been sitting there alone and crying for a few minutes, a little person—no more than two and a half feet tall…appeared out of nowhere to assist him. Somehow he tended to the boy and healed his injury almost instantly. The young boy asked the little man who he was, and the reply came that he was a gnome; the boy observed that he resembled more a “leprechaun” and the little man corrected him patiently, saying that no, he was a gnome. About this time the boy’s parents who had been looking for him, came near to the scene, and the little man scurried away into the underbrush. His parents did not believe his story.

Summary: Published newspaper reports describe a “bolide” like object that crossed the firmament from west to east leaving behind a white smoky trail that took about 15 minutes to dissipate. The event was also observed from Argentina in which witnesses reported a “celestial object” that emitted a large plume of white smoke from its rear, which remained visible for a long time, witnesses thought that whatever it was had crashed into the Pacific Ocean or Chile. A local witness, 104-year old Juana Anduar, only 14-years old at the time remembers that the classes were dismissed early and everyone stopped what they were doing to watch the strange spectacle. Anduar remembers seeing an object approaching from the west that the shape of a modern “airplane fuselage”, it flew diagonally emitting a tremendous noise. The frightened witnesses could see what appeared to be flames behind the object. The object apparently impacted into an isolated area in the forest quickly producing a large fire. According to reports searchers failed to locate a crater or any signs of the object. Some in the area speculate that the object remains buried underground.

Summary: A farmer, now deceased, was returning to his farmhouse at twilight when he chanced to see atop a nearby hill a round luminous object, green in color, hovering just above the ground. When he was about 100 to 200 meters away he saw several beings of small stature emerge from the machine, stroll about briefly, then disappear once again inside. The object then took off in a spiral, or zigzag, trajectory, and then streaked off at very high speed. He spoke to his family of the incident and asked that they never speak of it to anyone else. It was only after his death that the incident was revealed.

Summary: Silbie J Latham, then 13 or 14, had gone to the fields with his two older brothers Sid and Clyde. Two dogs, Bob and Fox, accompanied them. They were “chopping cotton” when they heard the two dogs set up a “deathly howl.” The three boys walked about 75 feet to a fencerow where the dogs had something cornered. Clyde got there first and turned to the other two and said, “Boys, there’s something in there. It must be something kinda bad.” Then he said, “Boys, it’s a little man!” Silbie looked and saw a little man some 18 inches high, just standing still, staring toward the north. He was green all over and either naked or with a frogman’s type outfit on, green in color. There was a hat with a wide brim on the back of his head, but it was all of one piece with the rest of the body. He said nothing and id not even acknowledge the dogs, by now worked up to a frenzy. Right after the three boys arrived the dogs finally attacked the being, literally tearing it limb from limb. “Blood and guts went everywhere. The blood was red and the guts looked like guts look. We were all just country as hell and didn’t know what to do…the dogs just chewed him to pieces…after they killed him we just went back to hoeing.” They told their folks but no one believe them; they went back to the site several times that day, but after that they never returned.

Summary: The 6-year old witness walking along a path located next to the sea, absorbed in her past time with her eyes mostly on the ground she happened to look up when she was about five yards away from the wall of local doctor’s house and saw something bizarre. A strange figure was looking over the all across the harbor to Cobh. She walked a few more steps nearer before she realized that what it was, and then she became rooted to the ground with fear. It was not ten paces away and she could see it only to clearly. It must have been a very tall creature that was looking over the wall, because she could almost see it to its waist—and the wall was at least five feet high. It was in the rough shape of a human being—that is, it had a head and shoulders and arms—though she did not see the hands, which were behind the wall. Except for two dark caverns, which represented the eyes, the whole thing was of one color, a sort of glistening yellow. As the wall was parallel to the road and on her left, the thing was looking past her—across the little road and straight across to Cobh. As the witness stood petrified, the thing began to turn its head very slowly toward her. At this point the young witness heard a voice in her ear—“If it looks straight at you, Eileen, you will die.” Her feet seemed to be anchored to the ground by heavy weights, but somehow she managed to turn and run. She ran into a nearby cottage about 15 yards away. Her next memory was of Mrs. Reilly (the owner of the cottage) sponging her face with water, as she shook all over with shock and terror. She told Mrs. Reilly that she had seen something dreadful in the Doctor’s garden. Mrs. Reilly told the young witness that she was not the first to see it and would not be the last.

Summary: William J. Kiehl and seven other persons saw a spherical craft on the surface of the water. On its deck were two small men wearing green-purple clothes. They seemed to be busy with a hose, plunging it into the water. On the opposite side were three men dressed in light brown, wearing square masks down to their shoulders. Seeing the witnesses, they reentered the craft except for one dwarf, wearing shoes with a curved, pointed tip, who remained outside while the craft rose 3 m above the water and shot upward, leaving a short trail.

Location: Noirétable, the Loire, France
Summary: Patrick Berlier and Michel Sabatier published about this case in 1984 in the ufology magazine “Lumières Dans La Nuit”.
Apparently, the report says that “little after the beginning” of WW1, therefore a date after August 3, 1914, at 04:00 a.m., close to Noirétable, the Loire, France, there was a case without UFO, atypical in its catalogue, because it is a “bedroom visitor”, and that he lists it because it is a French case, and that the witness was questioned by Misters Patrick Berlier and Michel Sabatier, whose report was published in the Lumières Dans La Nuit magazine. >One “Mr. Perret” resided in an old house with his mother, his brother, his sister, and his grandparents. His father had been drafted for the war. He was sleeping with his brother in a room separated by a curtain, his two brothers shared the same bed on the other side of the curtain, his mother and her sister slept on the other side, and the grandparents occupied the nearby room. He was awakened by what seemed to be a hand which taps his back. Looking around, he saw a luminous “being” described as looking like a 10 to 12 years old child, with a face white like snow and a dress white like snow going down to the feet, and very shining. He does not remember to have seen hair on the head of the “entity”. All the room was lighted. The being came out of the bedroom of the grandparents while passing directly through the door. It went in direction of the opposed wall, passed close to the bed, looked at the witness and gave him a smile. Then he crossed a second door giving on the outside and disappeared. A clearness remained in the room during two to three seconds. Mr. Perret, who until then was frozen with fear and could not even speak, started to shout; which awoke all the family. It is said that a local legend tells that in Mont-Verdun, the night of September 8, 1914, a procession of “beings of light” climbed the steep slope, entered in the old priory and disappeared there.

Summary: Albert Rosales indicates that in a region of southern Krasnoufimsk, in the Ural, Russia, there were mass observations of “mysterious flying machines” reported in the Press in August 1914; which worried the population. He says that in Asanova, Sarinskaya volost, Yekaterinburg area, Perm, Ural, Russia, on August 7, 1914, at an unknown time, a strange flying device landed near the village with two unknown persons onboard.
The local clerk shot three times at the uninvited visitors, but without result. The Bashkirs who saw the two men close enough reported that they were dressed warmly.

Summary: A 10-year old boy, Arvo Kuoppala was sitting in the living room of a farmhouse with his grandmother, Maria Falt, when suddenly it became dark outside like an eclipse of the sun, and a loud blowing noise could be heard. Then a bright wall of light came from the east and soon after a large shining globe became visible. The globe approached the house and stopped outside the window, after which, an oval window opened on its side through which the top part of two male beings could be seen. The larger one of the beings was in the middle of the oval-shaped window, the second was more to the side but also well visible. Their heads were large in comparison to their bodies, the faces were broad and angular, but the eyes appeared friendly. The being that was standing on the side was more midget-like and looked “ugly”. Arvo became terrified by the thought that the men could come in through the window, but his grandmother assured him that they would not, that they only had “something” to say. The larger humanoid now began to smile and started to speak. His lips and face moved as if he was speaking but no voice was heard. Arvo exclaimed with excitement, “He is talking, he is saying something” and immediately after the creature ceased talking and the face abruptly disappeared inside the globe, although no movement could be seen when the oval opening closed. After a moment a loud “thump” was heard, and then a bright flash and the object rose to into the sky and vanished towards the west with great speed. The observation had lasted only some minutes, but Arvo felt tired and went immediately to sleep, waking up later in the evening. His grandmother seems to have anticipated the event and she later told Arvo that the strangers were not from heaven, but from a distant place, and the globe was intended to travel short distances and that it had come from a “sky” ship to which it had also returned. Of the beings she said that they had large heads and were much more intelligent than humans, but somehow were related to us, and visited now and then. It seems clear that she had a lot of information about the humanoids and she claimed to have made an observation by herself years earlier (no details on that).

Summary: A witness named Vasiliy Alexandrovich Sokolov, contractor for stone works, had stopped to spend the night at the small village. After drinking tea, early in the morning he continued on his journey. He went to the yard, harnessed his horse, but did not get far away as a bright star-like object suddenly appeared in the sky. The object began increasing in size, descending from its high altitude moving in a declining trajectory. Soon he began to make out a cigar-shaped body, outlined in a bright light. The cylinder was brown in color, with a bright light on the front. The half moon was shining and the stars were visible, and the sky with completely cloud free. Then the witness saw a kind of “suspended boat” under the cigar shaped object, it was about 7 times smaller than the cigar shape object. The shadows of several men could be seen in it. In total there were six “men”. Five of them were sitting and one was standing, as he looked higher than the rest. The witness did not see the figures move and he did not hear any noise or sound. The object was seen in front of him towards the village of Harahusy. After seeing this the witness became afraid and ran to the yard, yelling at those present to switch the light of the room off and calling the Tatars there to come outside and watch the object. Then a beam of light projected from the cigar-shaped object, flashing like a thunderbolt, which lit a square on the ground and temporarily blinded the witness. At this very same moment the cigar shaped object turned perpendicular to the previous direction of flight with its front lighted section pointed towards Astrakhan. The light became dim and decreased in size. During the turn of the object a fast moving device was noticed on the stern section of the craft. The witness saw the object for about 10 minutes. Then the object turned and flew northward vanishing from sight. Sokolov was convinced that he had seen some kind of foreign dirigible. An official inquest was conducted by the chairman of the Kalmyk Province, B. Krishtafovich. Authorities in Saint Petersburg had been worried about possible German dirigibles penetrating Russian territory.

Both humanoids were about two meters in height and walked in unison along a path. They seemed to be joined together by one of the arms. Both wore tight-fitting green colored shiny coveralls. At one point both figures suddenly rose into the air and disappeared into the distance.
