Date:  July 1966
Location: Lake Nasijarvi, Otavalta, Finland
Time:  0100A-0130A
Summary: A man was lying alongside the water of Lake Nasijarvi between the north side of the island of Pikku-Hormu and the island of Hormu. Having finished a job he was taking a one-hour pause in the northern shore of the lake. He was eating a sandwich and drinking coffee when he heard over the weak rushing of the water an increasing rushing noise from the south of the island. He thought that it was another boat coming to the island and soon after a sound resembling someone dropping an anchor was heard. Then began a very loud hammering noise and the man assumed the other boat had needed repairs. After this the noise faded, he then heard steps from behind him, first one person, then two persons. As he expected that they would come forward and address him, he did not turn around. When nothing happened, he rose and packed his things and walked over to his boat and began lifting the line into boat, slowly rowing away in his boat. He then thought he wanted to see what the other boat looked like and soon he saw it from a distance of about 30 meters. He was astonished to see that it had a row of oval windows, through which a faint light was shining. After a while he looked again and was even more astonished when he noticed that the ship was actually standing on the shore and over the surface of the island. In the area between the ship and the island he could see someone walking about. The “ship” was standing on four telescopic legs, two of which were shorter as the slope of the shore is quite steep. On the island side of the ship a ladder with three steps was clearly visible. The fisherman now felt that this ship was not from this world, but he continued to observe it, approaching it even further. Apparently someone onboard the ship did not appreciate this and they shone a bright beam of light towards him as he tried to approach. This ceased after a while however. He could altogether see five humanoids, three tall and two smaller. As they were all the time behind the ship, he could not see many details. They seemed to be clad in blue overalls. Finally they all got into the ship, which then began to ascend. The telescopic legs, which had rounded plates on the bottom, detracted into black holes on the bottom of the ship, which was oval shaped, some 2.5 meters high and 6 meters in width. After it had ascended to a height of several “tree heights” it accelerated at great speed towards the northwest. It then disappeared into the distance.

Date:  July 1966: Sighting at Subic Bay Naval Station


Date:  July 1966
Location: Adda Lombardy Italy
Time: 1330
Summary: Giusepe Cavenaghi was fishing in a creek near the town when he observed at about 70 meters overhead a metallic disc shaped object flying at about 40 mph. It flew slowly over the river and disappeared from sight. Cavenaghi then heard a loud voice from behind him asking him what he had seen; the question was repeated again at which time the witness replied in the negative. Turning around he saw a tall human like figure with pale features standing nearby. The figure was wearing a gray shirt with a dark vest and what appeared to be old-fashioned sleeves. He also wore a striped pair of pants with belt, and a tight fitting black cap on his head. The strange figure then turned around and disappeared into the brush.

Date:  July 1966
Location: Near Allentown, Pennsylvania
Time:  afternoon
Summary: A young couple was driving along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which seemed strangely devoid of traffic that day when they saw a large circular object in the sky ahead of them. It looked as if it was going to land directly on the turnpike. The husband, mildly alarmed pulled over to the edge of the road and stopped. They watched as the object, a shiny metallic craft with large black spots or windows, flew very low over their car. Then it was suddenly gone. Her husband started the car again, and they drove on to their cottage. It was not until after they arrived at their destination that they looked at their watches. It was 1330. They had started out at 0930A. For some reason, which neither of them could understand, it took them four hours to make a drive that normally took 30 minutes.

Location. Kolyvansky Lake Siberia Russia

Date: July 1966
Time: evening
A man, who had gone fishing, was disturbed when he noticed a strange silence around him. He laid down but was awaken by a field mouse, he turned and saw a light, he could see that the light was on a shiny silvery flattened tear drop shaped craft, a hatch on the object opened revealing an interior panel with a dark desk divided into squares. Then four tall well-built men appeared, they had short blond hair, a kind face and appeared to be wearing casual clothing. A slightly shorter and older man now appeared. The witness became frightened and attempted to flee, but he heard a telepathic message that told him not to be afraid. He was told to ask as many questions as he liked, but the aliens apparently avoided a direct answer. Towards the end of the conversation the witness felt sleepy and closed his eyes, when he opened them again, the object and men were gone.

Time: evening
10-year old Glenn Potter and a friend were outside in the backyard watching a television, which Potter had connected inside the house using a long extension cord. Suddenly an object the size of a small car appeared overhead, it was circular with many lights. Other portions of the UFO were dark with the exception of an aperture (window) facing the witnesses. Through the opening he could see that it was dimly lit inside. They witnesses were about 40 ft away from the object. Potter could actually see a form or figure at the aperture looking down on him, there was another form that moved in the background from right to left, behind the other form at the window. The object remained stationary and silent. Potter began walking towards the object and it moved slowly back away from him. It then began to move upward and backwards, when it reached to the height of a telephone pole behind a tree it suddenly disappeared before the witness eyes. Potter has been involved in other encounters.

8:45 p.m. MST. Observers including Airman William D. Offord saw a red object just above the horizon to the west. This object disappeared below the horizon. The observers moved to another position where they saw the red object again. Over the next hour and a half five distinct objects the apparent size of a quarter, a nickel and three objects the size of a dime held at arm’s length were observed. The first sighting was called into the Golf One Launch Control Facility of the Minuteman missile complex, Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota.  Here Airmen Calenberg, Langerud and Delapp, spotted the objects to the west of Golf One. The quarter size object led by nickel size while dime sizes skittered erratically around the horizon and mountain tops in distance and returned to the quarter size and nickel size objects which stayed on a fairly stable slow moving course ENE. The objects were viewed from two separate locations one to the west of the objects and one to the east. The quarter size object resembled an oblong saucer emitting pulsating flashes and rays of white and green light. The nickel size resembled a steady red light. The dime sizes darted erratically away from the quarter size and returned. Air Force Helicopter 481 was dispatched from Ellsworth AFB with the Base Commander and a photographer onboard.
