1971 HUMANOID REPORTS: THE BEGINNING OF THE “HIGH STRANGENESS PERIOD”.
After 1970 went out with a whimper, 1971 began in much the same manner, but a trend was beginning to form. High strangeness reports were becoming more and more commonplace, memories of 1966-1968 came alive. Something was coming down the pipe; something incredible was going to happen. A change was in the air, 1973 was just around the corner, and the world would never be the same.

Two witnesses spotted a creature resembling a “pterosaur”, something resembling a flying dragon. It reportedly had a wingspan of 20 feet, big bony wings, with no feathers, just leathery dry skin stretched across these big bony flexing fingers. It made big droopy lops in the air and at the same time emitting an eerie guttural scream. It moved about blindly like a huge bat, and then it moved off to the mountains.

Near one of these Soviet flight testing bases, Air Force Major Arkadiy Yegorov who had been testing military supersonic aircrafts in the early 70’s reported approaching a shiny oval-shaped object once, “resembling a controlled ship”. The attempt was almost successful and the Major succeeded in seeing the face of the alien “navigator”, which he described as very pale as if made out of wax and not belonging to a “live human being”. But suddenly the Major suffered an attack of nausea and weakness, his legs and hands were paralyzed and he landed his experimental fighter with difficulty. He never reported this encounter to his superiors, afraid to loose his job and of being thrown into a mental hospital, like some other Soviet military personnel who had dared to report such encounters.

A man from the Serro region was taking a bath and swimming in a local river, wearing just a slip, bathing himself near one of the river banks. Suddenly he noticed a strange feminine figure standing on the opposite bank. She had a beautiful face, but her gown was odd, it resembled a long gray smock with long sleeves. He could not see her hair, as she wore a sort of green cap, similar to the ones used by swimmers. On her left hand she held something resembling a thick green book, while on her right hand she held something like an old fashioned coffee-pot, also green, no holder and two parallel pipes, also green. Amazed and curious the witness asked in a loud voice, who she was, and received no answer. He crossed the river, dried himself, put on his clothes and approached the “lady” whose beauty, from up close, stunned him ever more. Again he asked, “Who are you, where did you come from?” “I came from ‘Cera’,” she replied. As the area is extremely hilly at first the witness thought she had said, “Serra” (hill in Portuguese) but then it seemed to him that the odd word fit better. The witness walked a few steps beside the mysterious lady always commenting how pretty she was, without reaction from the latter. Suddenly he noticed that her gown sleeves were extremely long, almost hiding a disturbing detail that he noticed: her fingers were extremely hairy (!). At this point he briefly turned away but when he looked back the woman had vanished, seconds before she had been next to him and now she was gone, without any possibility of having run away, or she would still be seen.

The witness, a lonely horse rider, was traveling on the ridge of a hill when he saw a strange little craft land some tens of meters in front of him, also on the ridge. It was a boxy parallelepiped shaped, transparent little vehicle (possibly 2.5m long) but with a green floor, having two rectangular transparent lateral winglets. Inside, two humanoids could be seen. They sat on square backless seats. Both got out. They were short as to human standards. Both wore a green overall, were white, a Mediterranean biotype, dark haired and bearded. The beards seemed to be well-kept, trimmed. Both took a kind of notebook and pencil and began to write on it, not aware of the lonely human rider presence. The latter approached and innocently thought they could be from the Brazilian Army, because of the green uniforms, not to mention a cap (also green) similar to the one used by the military. The imagination of the simple rider went farther, but not to the stars. He wondered if they could have had something to do with a land property dispute that was taking place. The Army (the country was under a military government) could have sent people to monitor the place. The rider stopped, dismounted from his horse and took a few steps towards the strangers. In order to look polite, he gestured a military salute. However the strangers just looked at him briefly, stopped taking their notes, entered the craft which took off and then landed about 1km away from the witness. Notwithstanding, the lone rider adamantly insisted on approaching the mysterious flying duo. But when they saw him approaching again, they just displayed a sort of disgusted look and again reentered the little craft and didn’t land again. Just flew away.

The main witness was sitting in a car with her boyfriend on a bluff overlooking a local University, when they saw a bright dot move across the sky, it stopped moving then became brighter and moved directly towards the witnesses. The bright object then hovered directly in front of their vehicle, no features could be seen, but it was very large. The next thing the witness remembers was seeing the object flying away. The witness eventually was able to remember a shape behind the light, footsteps, and faces staring at her through the car window. The faces had large gray eyes. A hand beckoned at her to open the car door then she was taken into the object in a bright beam of light. She then found herself in a circular room filled with a lavender colored mist. The room had a ledge around the outside and was metallic. Two short humanoids approached her; they used mental telepathy to communicate with her and were very kind towards her.

Prof. Caggiano was quietly smoking a cigarette by the window of his room, when he noticed a luminous disc-shaped beam of light projected against the wall of a nearby factory. The light then transformed itself into a cloud-like figure that began approaching the witness’s position along a wall. The “cloud” then assumed a man-like shape standing erect. The figure wore a luminous gray-pearl colored cloak like outfit that covered its features completely. The bottom half was tubular in shape, but no feet were evident. It moved quickly over the pavement as if it were “skating.” Confused and scared the witness ran out armed with a bat in order to confront the figure.

A teenage boy working with a large ranch concern on roundup was somehow lost from the rest of the crew and wandered about the area for several days without either water or food. He passed into a semi conscious twilight between consciousness and unconsciousness. During the time he was in this state he was aware of several little men around him giving him continued help and directions. They finally were able to lead him out of the range where he finally made it to Globe, a distance of about 50 miles from where he was lost. They did not give him either food or water, but somehow he had strength. He could plainly make the people out and thus he was not sure whether they were “ghosts” or real things. But he did manage to say a few words to them and they in turn to him.

Graduate student Tatiana Syrchenko was reading a technical manual accompanied by the student chief when she suddenly felt a “push” from the back and could not overcome an urge to go for a walk. She walked out in an area, which was pretty isolated at the time as twilight quickly approached. Suddenly she noticed a very strange “automobile” approaching her. It was cherry red in color with dark tinted glass, with a peculiar oval shape, never seen by her in the Soviet Union. She stood in stunned surprised staring at the “automobile”. The strange machine drove up to her and a door was slightly opened, a man wearing a black coverall leaned out and asked her if her name was Tatiana, if she were then she must go with them. She glanced into the machine and saw two men sitting inside. She was very afraid, but almost as if he was able to read her thoughts the man in the black coverall said, “Do not be concerned we will bring you back safely”. He smiled and this gave Tatiana confidence, she immediately entered the machine. She noticed as she looked out the windshield that the machine dipped down in a steep 180-degree angle and had bright lights on the front. In a moment she found herself sitting in a square room that had walls and ceiling covered with a material resembling cotton, very soft to the touch. The room was well lit but she could not see the source of the light. The men who she had previously seen in the strange vehicle now wore silvery gray coveralls. She was told by one of the men that someone called “The Cardinal” wanted to see her. She protested saying that she was not dressed for the occasion. One of the men then approached the wall, raised his hand and a slot opened, and inside was two coveralls, one was silver and the other lilac in color. She chose the lilac coverall and quickly put it on, she remember that the material was also very soft. An aperture then became visible in the room and a man wearing the same lilac colored coveralls appeared. He looked elderly with long silvery white hair. He said something like, ” I am glad to meet you Tatiana”. As she approached the stranger in order to greet him she suddenly blacked out. She then found herself back at the Institute still reading the manual. The clock still read 1600 hrs.

The town mayor, Amador Velaz was returning home along a dirt road after settling some minor citizen disputes when he suddenly stopped in his tracks when he noticed what appeared to be the figure of a young child playing along a ditch alongside a brick wall. Concerned, he went to take a closer look at the figure and was horrified to notice that the strange figure was really floating a few inches above the ground. The figure appeared to have been only about 1 meter in height. Stunned, Velaz watched as slowly at first, the strange figure rose up into the air, like a “helium balloon” and as it did it turned to face him. At this point Velaz realized that the creature had two round white-colored protrusions in the area where the head would have been. The bizarre entity was wearing a one-piece beige outfit with tight-fitting sleeves and a pair of huge “shoes” that clung down from its feet. In total silence the creature rose up into the air diagonally disappearing above a nearby pine grove. Screaming hysterically, Velaz alerted the neighbors and asked for a shotgun so he could shoot the strange entity. However some of the neighbors only saw what appeared to be a distant light descend into the forest. Velaz suffered from a high fever soon after the encounter.

The wife of a well-known Australian singer, and her two teenage daughters, observed a light by the side of the road while following her husband’s car some distance behind. Thinking her husband may have stopped by the side of the road, they pulled to the side. They found that the light came form the figure of a “man” who was bathed in a luminous glow. “One hand was outstretched and from it to the ground, rather in a manner of a yo-yo, a ball of white light bounced up and down.” Then the three witnesses saw that they were surrounded by thousands of small lights, arranged in rows as far as the eye could see. The daughter who was driving turned the car around and retreated over these rows of lights, which were extinguished upon each impact.

34-year old Beverly Roberts was on the I-5 freeway doing about 90 mph when she hit black ice and was sliding into the concrete divider. Her last recollection was of the guardrail filling the window, and that she was going to crash. She lost consciousness. When she finally came to, the car was undamaged, but idling along very slowly, almost driving itself, along the exit ramp two blocks away. She was very groggy and a police car drove up, but took off after a speeder. She recalled a truck with no lights coming at her from a side street. At a later date she underwent hypnosis in order to lose weight when she recalled what really happened during the strange road accident. She woke up in a small round craft lying on a metal bunk, held to the wall by a spun metal cord, her head was bandaged, and she was in a cast. Exploring, she went out of the door, a concave hole, and could see clouds below her through a chain guardrail that was about three feet tall, and about three feet from the wall. There was a fifteen feet foot wide hole that had a plastic dome on the bottom to see out of. Everything was made of a gray metal. She went through another doorway, and a male and a female were there. The male was very human looking, but the female had large almond-shaped eyes. Both had on gray outfits. “Where am I?” Beverly asked. The female alien said angrily to her companion, “Why is she conscious? Get her back to her room now!” She remembered being cold and seeing the male touch something on the wall that resembled a golf tee, and she was unconscious again. Beverly recalled waking later in a strange location. It was a desert like place, and everything was orange. There were farms that grew produce, and there were dry and barren hills. She was told that it did not matter if she saw all of this since she would lose her memory later anyway. Beverly had the feeling that she was in the center of the earth she reportedly spent a year there healing. When she awoke…her car was on the freeway off ramp.

In 1971, Jackie Gleason attended a small White House dinner. After dinner, Gleason spoke privately with Nixon. He asked the President if there was anything that Nixon could tell him about UFOs. According to Gleason, Nixon told him, “Well Jackie, if you can arrange to arrive at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa sometime in the next few days, I’ll arrange to have you shown some things that may help answer your questions. Gleason arrived in Tampa a day and a half later. After calling a phone number provided to him by someone on Nixon’s staff, he headed out to MacDill. After arriving on the base, he was taken to a dark colored building that appeared to be some sort of storage facility. Once inside, he had to pass through several levels of security. Finally, Gleason was escorted into a large room where some strange debris lay on the floor. An officer told him, “This material is from Roswell.” No emotion, just a matter of fact statement. The officer handed Gleason a small piece, which seemed almost weightless and very flexible. Just then a light came on in the center part of the room. Jackie was astonished to see what looked like a large piece of a broken disc just floating a few feet above the floor. He was warned not to approach it. After a few minutes, Gleason was escorted to another room. Three containers with glass plates for viewing greeted him. “These were the occupants found near the object you just saw.” Again, with little emotion, the officer gave Jackie a one-sentence description that spoke volumes. The beings were about four to five feet tall. Two of the bodies were badly damaged, but one was in very good shape. As Gleason looked at it, the officer said, “This one died later.” It had large oval eyes, grayish skin and looked male. “Are they all males?” Gleason asked the officer. “Your guess is as good as ours.” He answered Jackie with a slight smile. He then told Jackie that it was time to go.

The witness, Charles Le Breton, was alone fishing in an isolated cay in knee-deep water when he noticed something in the water that resembled a stingray, he tried to stab it, but the spear went right through it. It was something white and gelatinous. It apparently swam away and being curious he followed it. He then came face to face with a strange glowing figure. The figure’s body seemed to be covered with hundreds of shiny dots. The creature had an oval shaped head, at the spot where the eyes should had been it had two v-shaped holes from which an orange-yellow light shone. He did not see a mouth, nose, or ears. The creature’s extremities resembled those of an elephant’s trunk or maybe tentacles. The stunned witness was unable to move but soon a strange calm came over him. Soon the strange being began to communicate with the witness by using telepathy. He was asked numerous questions on subjects that he did not know anything about, but somehow was able to answer all the questions at length. After awhile Le Breton began noticing the creature’s body features and was able to make out a sort of paunchy stomach and hips. It seemed to have a soft texture, devoid of any bones. At the end of its arms it had what appeared to be octopus like “suckers.” The witness also noticed about 500 feet away several other similar beings that seemed to glide above the water at times bending down as if picking up something from the water. A strange silence permeated the area and he also noticed a bright bluish-white light that shone from under the water from a nearby undersea lagoon. Suddenly the communication with the being ceased and two of the other creatures glided over, positioning themselves one on each side of the creature that had been communicating with the witness. Then they all three turned around and left, joining the rest of the creatures. The witness was then able to move and heard something in his head telling him to leave the area. He did but continued fishing nearby. He did not see the creatures depart. During the whole episode a strange dark cylindrical cloud hovered over the area, occasionally sending bright flashes of light towards the surface of the ocean.

The witness was parked in an isolated area looking out for strange phenomena, when he saw an approaching semi-elliptical light form approaching from above some nearby trees. It soon became evident that the light was coming from a cylindrical form that was tapered to a point at both ends. As the witness watched a smaller object apparently descended from the bottom of the large form and began moving in a direct line towards the witness. The object was apparently a man-like figure. The witness immediately exited the car but suddenly heard a voice in his head telling him to stop, suddenly he was unable to move, and it felt like he was pushing against an invisible force. The figure continued his steady approach and as it passed in front of the car, the witness was able to observe more details. He described the being as almost 8-feet tall, well built in proportion and covered by a dark coat or cloak. He had swept back gray hair form a high and broad forehead. His face was long, the nose large but well shaped. He appeared to ignore the witness. The tall figure passed out of sight to the rear of the car. At this time the witness was able to move but as he looked in the direction of the giant figure, it had vanished. Soon the luminous cylindrical form rose up and disappeared in the distance.

Date: January 1971
Terry and a friend, Bob, had decided to pack up their camp because of an approaching thunderstorm. The two men had been camping in the area of Wrotham Park Station and hunting crocodiles to be sold in Cairns. The two departed in Bob’s four-wheel drive Landrover towards the station homestead on route to Chillagoe with the idea in mind of leaving the area before the roads became boggy. Upon reaching the gate at the homestead Terry and Bob saw a light some distance from the road in the scrub, at a second gate another light was seen. Not considering these lights as anything unusual, the two witnesses drove towards Chillagoe and after driving for another 10 minutes; Bob saw and pointed out a light in the sky (approximately) 100ft altitude and half a mile ahead. The object, which the light was on, paced the witness’s car in front of them at this distance for approximately one hour until approximately 0200A. The four-wheel seemed to gain on the object until it almost stopped one quarter of a mile distant. Terry stated that it was hard to estimate the distance because of the darkness. The UFO drifted across the road and over the scrub to their left and the two men decided to stop and look closer at the object at this stage. They hooked a spotlight on the four-wheel drive and aimed it at the object. Terry said they flashed the spotlight several times and the object, hovering appeared to respond by dimming and brightening on top. During this time watching the object, Bob approached the UFO on foot to about thirty meters. He described an object about sixty feet wide and twenty five feet deep with a large window area, lit with soft green light inside and a brilliant curtain of crimson light streaming down from the rim of the object to the ground. The object was a gold brown in color at this time but later appeared to be shiny metallic when lit by sunlight. The whole UFO was enveloped in a halo of light apparently reflected up from the crimson beams. Bob stated that although he could not hear any noise, he had the impression that a lot of noise was being generated, perhaps beyond his range of hearing. As he stood watching he saw several shadows moving in the cabin area, one of the shadows moved to the windows of the object nearest to the witness. He clearly saw the upper human form silhouette apparently leaning on the windowsill area looking out. Bob decided to return to the vehicle at this stage. Both witnesses continued to observe the object until sunrise, when the object began to slowly move away to the northeast.

These were accompanied by a strong pungent odor resembling rotten garbage. One of the creatures was about 7-feet tall, the other 5-feet and another one about 3 or 4-feet tall. In one reported incident the hairy creatures seemed to mimic human speech, their voice sounding very guttural. The main witness, a Dr. Baddour insisting in calling the creatures “Zoobies” and speculated that they were interdimensional in nature.

Ron Dee and his wife were relaxing for the evening when Jackie realized that she had forgotten to bring in some things from the back porch. When she opened the door and stepped out onto the porch, Jackie realized that she was not alone. In the moonlight she saw a humanoid creature whose body was covered with fur, its face a bizarre mixture of wolf and human. Ron Dee sprinted across the room when he heard his wife’s scream. He was at her side in time to see the “wolf man” leap over the wooden fence that surrounded their backyard and disappear into the darkness. It emitted a horrible growling sound as it left.

Two women, Mrs. Sinikka Kuittinen and Mrs. Manninen were driving from Kuusamo towards Oulu when in Kiiminki they observed a light behind the car on the right side of the road. After some time the light passed over to the left side of the road, during which the ears of Mrs. Kuittinen plugged up. When they came to a field the light disappeared. Suddenly Mrs. Kuittinen, who was driving, saw a creature one meter tall, with a helmet on its head. It was clad in a brown-green suit and crossed the road using small jumps, disappearing on the other side of the road. There were no houses or other buildings in the area. The women were very scared and did not stop to investigate if it left tracks and drove straight to Oulu.

Two young men, P. Aliranta and E J Sneck, were working in the woods when Aliranta noticed a 15 foot metallic object, shaped like two saucers put together, and with four thin legs, descending in a clearing 50 feet away. As it landed, a little entity just under 3-foot tall glided to the ground from an opening in the underside; dressed in green one-piece “diver’s suit,” it wore a helmet with a circular faceplate. It approached the young men, walking on top of the deep snow, and Aliranta moved toward it with his motor saw in hand. Through 3 windows on the upper part of the object, 3 more entities could be seen. The humanoid retreated before Aliranta and was rising into the air under the object when the young man grabbed it by the heel of its boot with its bare hand; he found it burned like a hot iron, and he had to let go at once. As soon as the being was back in the object, it ascended with a slight buzzing sound or hum. Both men felt stiff all over and had difficulty in moving. Four landing leg marks and small footprints were left in the snow.

Driving along an old road, Franklin Altamirano saw 3 strange figures walking toward him in the middle of the road. They were clad entirely in black, with black hoods over their heads with eyeholes through which the eyes glowed phosphorescently. As they made no move to get out of the way, the witness was force to run onto the shoulder to turn around, at a distance of under 10 meters, to return to town, rather than pass them. Returning later to the site, he could find no traces; however, 3 days later, while driving over the same route, he again saw a similar entity, but moving in the opposite direction to the first occasion.

Matt Dickson heard something out in front of his house. In the dark he caught a glimpse of a vaguely human-like figure kneeling on the front lawn near a nearby empty fishpond. Curious, Dickson decided to find out who the stranger was. He then stepped out on his front porch for a better look and was terrified to see a wolf-like man attempting to scoop up puddles of water from the bottom of the fish pond, crouched on its hands and knees. The sight was so shocking that Dickson suffered a heart attack and had to be rushed to Comanche County Memorial Hospital. In a report to the policed Dickson described the creature as tall, with a lot of hair all over its face and body and dressed in an indescribable manner.

Sun Trha Wong and five other soldiers were on a routine patrol in the area of the artesian wells near the road leading to Erhlieh when they saw resting on a large rock promontory a huge luminous sphere the size of a large 2 story house. They hid to observe the phenomenon. After about ten minutes the luminosity of the sphere began to slowly decrease, they could see that the sphere was made out of a metal or plastic like material, they could not see any openings on it. However soon they spotted three beings walking around the sphere holding strange apparatuses in their hands. The humanoids appeared to be searching for something and frequently looked in all directions. They were much taller than the average human and wore helmets. A few minutes later the figures somehow disappeared and the sphere took off disappearing towards the north.

Gilbert Camus, a radio technician, was driving to his shop in Savigny when he noticed lights at the right side of the road ahead. As he approached, he saw that these were on a line of 8 bluish luminescent rectangles on the ground in a marshy meadow beside the road. Above them he could then distinguish, in the moonlight, a flattened hemispherical dome, apparently of dark metal, about 25 ft high and 50 ft wide. When he arrived near the object, he saw 3 “animals” on all fours, climbing up the road bank; their heads were level with his windshield, so they “must have been of great stature.” Their heads were like an ant’s with “a rounded lobe flanked by 2 other lobes swelling out like cheeks”; he saw no faces. In the meadow he could see about 20 more of these beings, some upright and others on all fours. His car had just passed them when it was filled with bluish white light from behind, as if a “ray” had been projected at him. He ceased to control the car, which spontaneously slowed down to about 12 mph, then recovering its initial speed as he reached the outskirts of Condamine. Later, when he took his clothes off, he found on his shirt, below the belt several golden yellow rectangles about 1″ by 2″. These disappeared after a few minutes. 3 days later, on his undershirt appeared similar chocolate brown rectangular marks, which persisted through 3 or 4 washings. The paint began to come off his car when he washed it. Most surprisingly he found himself completely cured of a liver ailment, which had given him excruciating headaches previously. In the meadow the next day was found a semi-elliptical imprint, about an inch deep, with a long axis of about 36 ft. Inside this trace the dandelions elsewhere abundant in the meadow were absent, and where it crossed a drainage ditch the ice in the ditch was melted, and the water actually seemed still warm. At the edge of the woods beside the trace, a large tree branch was freshly broken off. In the snow were to be seen footprints like those of “shoes without heels”, some as much as 16″ long.

Two young men, Brian Scott and Nick Corbin, were in the Superstition Mountains, near Apache Junction, to gather snakes. During the night, a light was seen coming over the mountains; it approached, and the next thing they knew, they were hastily leaving the campsite, following an unexplainable lapse of time. Five years later, under hypnosis, Scott described how the object, emitting a purplish light from underneath, approached and hovered over them. He felt a “pulsating, pulling feeling” and the two young men were “lifted” up into the craft. Inside, they were separated, and Scott was led by a 7 ft tall entity down a corridor to a door which, upon approaching, “shattered;” inside, in a small room filled with mist, he encountered 4 or 5 similar creatures, 7 foot tall and with grayish skin similar to that of a crocodile, and with 3 fingered hands. Scott was stripped and placed against a wall panel very brilliantly lighted; the room was cold and the mist emerged from vents in the floor. A machine directly in front of him appeared to “scan” him, and a new entity, this one 9-foot tall, communicated telepathically with him, and asked why he was afraid. His mind was briefly transported to, presumably, the being’s home planet. The beings that examined him had huge ears, no hair, and slit-like mouths; their feet were elephant like, with three broad toes. When the examination was completed, Scott was reunited with his friend and returned to the ground, with no conscious memory of what had taken place. However, both felt and unspecified terror of such degree that they immediately packed their gear and returned to town. Brian Scott also learned that these beings had a method of “displacing” their ships through space by using a series of hops. The spacecraft were guided in their trajectories by a number of space navigational beacons that are placed strategically throughout the galaxy.

Although the young man refused, he unaccountably found himself walking beside the strange man down the city streets, “without other people apparently noticing them.” He was led to a vacant field in which there was a strange, round craft, into which he was taken. Other beings on board communicated telepathically with him and attached devices to his thumbs by which samples of blood were taken. He was then told that he was “one of us” and the next thing he knew he was back in bed in his room, without knowing how he got there. He noticed that both of his thumbs were bleeding. Four months later the witness developed renal problems for which he was hospitalized. It was then discovered that his blood did not match any other known type of blood. But even more unusual then that was the development of two additional sets of nipples below his normal ones.

An IL-14 aircraft under the command of Captain Konstantin Ivanovich Kopeykin was approaching the outskirts of the city was rapidly approached by a dazzling sphere, which seemed to increase in size as it approached. According to the flight mechanic it increased to about 50 meters in diameter. “Boiling” bright beams of light seemed to emanate from the center of the sphere. The witnesses were stunned to suddenly see the object assumed to form of a disk; it finally overtook the aircraft and changed to a bright blue color. It seemed to be composed of shells connected by semi-transparent supports becoming thicker in the middle section. As a whole the object had a body with the apparent capability of transforming itself according to the principle of a telescopic antenna. The light, which created the effect of boiling, was propagated along the supports. Inside the object there was a vividly luminous cavity of a golden color. In the forward section of the disk a set of transparent cylinders were seen. In the rear—arched constructions. Suddenly from the UFO smoke began to pour out and the object began descending at this moment the flight mechanic saw something that struck him. Inside the UFO he could see the figure of a man, apparently operating controls. The craft finally disappeared from sight.

His wife, hearing the pane of glass breaking, entered the kitchen in time to see her 5’2″ husband disappearing horizontally through the lower pane, which was 4.5 feet from the floor. To jump through it, would have been impossible, as it was 32″ wide and only 10′ deep, and fronted upon the kitchen sink; the distance to the ground outside was 7 feet. “The man was terrified, yet he cold not run from the object or being out of fear.

The central Siberian uplands north of Olekminsk have been the source of numerous UFO reports, including a massive “wave” or scare that erupted in early 1970, involving disappearances of animals and humans, including one entire village. A Soviet supersonic bomber disappeared without a trace in the area on April 24 1970, provoking a 150-plane search (many of these reported gigantic space craft hovering so high that they were out of range.) Soviet reconnaissance planes appeared in the skies, relentlessly photographing every inch of the terrain. Chinese citizens were terrorized by ufonauts disguised as Russian cosmonauts and Russian citizens reported landing of Chinese or Oriental appearing UFO pilots. This confusion might have led (intentionally on the part of the aliens?) to World War III between China and Russia since the phenomena did result in some border clashes between the two superpowers. On April 29 inhabitants of these areas were awestruck as a gigantic Soviet aerial armada consisting of bombers and fighter planes passed overhead en route to a rendezvous near the desert region. This area was bombarded for hours and literally blasted from the face of the earth…reliable sources report that a secret flying saucer base was systematically liquidated…consisting of hundreds of miles of underground tunnels and dozens of “pyramid like structures” throughout the area.”

The object was “football shaped,” the interior light being “the brightest blue imaginable,” the top portion being transparent and the bottom “greenish metallic, like gun metal,” with 3 large transparent holes. The object tilted downward, revealing 3 tall humanoid figures, over 6 ft in height, in the transparent upper half of the UFO.

They seemed to be “shrouded in a gray mist.” Through the branches of a macracarpa and pine trees shone a bright red light from a spherical object. A “silver strip appeared on the water and appeared to light the way back for the men to get on the red ball.” Then the strip disappeared and the red object moved off, slowly at first, seeming to bounce along in the air at low altitude. It then gathered altitude as it approached a nearby aerodrome, soaring very high until it went out of sight.

The witness 15-year old Dolores Martinez Briones was at the time living with her parents at a military base and that night due to the excessive heat she would get up in the middle of the night to open the windows and observe the stars. On that night there was a full moon and there was a strange stillness in the area. As she stared at the firmament she suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to look towards a nearby field about 200 meters away. There she saw a dull metallic cylinder-shaped craft hovering at seven meters from the ground. After a few minutes a hatch opened on the lower section of the craft and two men wearing white outfits stepped out, and descended slowly to the ground on a metallic platform without noticing the witness. Their white uniforms resembled those wore by doctors. However the men soon noticed the witness presence and began staring intently at her. In total fear and unable to move Dolores watched from behind the window as the two men approached to within several meters of her location. At this point she heard a clear message in her mind which said, “Relax, we are peaceful, nothing will happen to you.” Immediately the witness felt at ease and somehow had the feeling that she knew the men. She opened the door and walked outside and then followed the men to their craft after receiving a telepathic invitation. She described the two men as human-like, about 1.80m in height, very light colored skin, brown hair and brown eyes. They wore thick soled white-colored shoes. After accepting their invitation the witness and the two men arrived at the hovering cylinder-shaped craft and the hatch opened up again. At this point a third seemingly older entity appeared at the hatch. He was also human-like about 70 years of age, with white hair and a short white beard. He wore a white tunic-like garment and also white thick soled shoes; he was about 1.60m in height and a very pleasant countenance. He greeted the witness by extending his hand and motioning her to step inside the craft. Once inside she looked up and saw numerous small multi-colored lights on the ceiling and also on the walls and halls. In the center of the craft there was something resembling a metallic desk and a bench, both objects appeared to be welded into the floor and were surrounded by a short ledge. The elder alien then approached Dolores and asked her if she wanted to know about his planet promising Dolores that she would be returned. She accepted and then the older man extracted a suit similar to his from the metallic desk and asked her to wear it. The suit was white, long and of a very thin material almost semi-transparent, she wore it over her pajamas. Ready to embark on the trip she received instructions to grab a hold of the ledge during the complete journey. She then heard a door close and the two taller men stood next to her one on each side. The elder alien sat on the bench by the desk and began pressing buttons similar to those on a microwave. The witness could see lights coming on and off on the control panel. Everything was silent; the two tall men did not speak a word while their “leader” worked with the control panel. Several minutes later the leader told Dolores that they were already in outer space and were traveling at a velocity unimaginable by humans, he added that this would put his world at about 2 light years away theoretically. He told her the name of his planet and galaxy which she wasn’t able to remember. During the whole trip she did not feel any sense of movement. Suddenly she developed an urge to look at the stars and asked the alien leader if she could do so. The leader pressed a button and a small window-like opening became visible, which she could only see darkness through it. The alien leader explained to her that due to the velocity she was not able to see anything outside. At this moment she asked the leader for his name and he told her to call him “Elder one” since they identified themselves by codes and not names. She noticed that the leader was the only one that communicated verbally with her, the other two taller men used only telepathy. Later he asked Dolores if she wanted to see their planet from afar and she agreed, he then pressed another button and another window became visible, outside she was able to see a diminutive brilliant silver sphere, evidently the alien’s planet. Soon the alien craft landed and a door opened which led to an enclosed area, which all four stood there for several minutes, she was told that they were going through a sterilization process. Soon after that the two tall men disappeared and the older alien leader remained by her side. After removing her “spacesuit” she was introduced into a transparent capsule like object, in there she went through some type of cleansing process in which she felt cool water and a cold breeze go through her. After a moment a door opened and she stepped outside. She now stood in a room with a flat metallic ceiling and floor illuminated by a tenuous light from an unknown source. Soon a door opened and the alien leader appeared carrying a tunic similar to the one he was wearing which he asked Dolores to wear. She was then led through a broad corridor with a luminous mirror-like floor where she saw multitudes of people all in constant movement, many were cleaning the floors other carrying packages, and all seemed to be in a hurry. Ahead on the corridor she found what appeared to be “electric” passageways in which the aliens traveled through. Without distinction, all the alien men and women wore beige blue clothing and all had short hair and were of thin built. The women were somewhat shorter than the men. And one thing that caught Dolores attention was that all seemed to be of the same age. She did not see any older aliens with the exception of the alien leader that always accompanied her. She traveled everywhere with the alien leader and noticed that all the other aliens seemed to ignore her but showed great respect and reverence towards her guide, who seemed to give out orders and instructions by using hand gestures. There also seemed to be a group body guards or “servants” always following them. Sooner or later they reached an area in which there were several corridors all leading into different directions. After a moment of hesitation the alien leader told her to follow him that he was going to show her the place where they lived. He emphasized that their way of living was very different from humans and that marriage did not exist in their society. Their population was totally controlled, when one of them died another one was born to replace him or her, this was done through artificial insemination. Disease was non-existent in their society and no one grew old, except for him since he was a leader. However he said that they were no immortals but lived for a long time. She was led through an endless labyrinth of corridors where everyone moved along in perfect order, no one seemed to laugh or joke around. Later she was shown what appeared to be their living quarters about six by six meters in diameter designed for six persons. A small window became visible and a small platform jutted out on it was a plate with several bon-bon shaped pieces, yellow-orange in color. She was offered a piece was refused. Later she was taken into a large auditorium and in there it was revealed to her that they also believed in God, who was the same in all parts of the Universe. From there she was taken to another location which appeared to be a center for children only. There was only an adult woman who seemed to be operating several computer consoles and screens. On the screens Dolores could see several hieroglyphics type symbols; on them she recognized the letters Z and X. For the first time Dolores saw somebody else smile on the planet as an 8-year old child saluted and smile at her. Soon she was taken along another corridor into a beautiful location or garden filled with trees, shrubs and different colored flowers and covered by a huge transparent glass dome. She was told that in this particular garden they kept flowers that they had brought from earth. He then added, “This is a sample of what our planet used to be, it was the same as yours (Earth) only that the ozone layer became depleted and we were force to live underground to escape the powerful ultraviolet rays of light.” She asked if there was water available and was told that only very little and it was used only for drinking. The alien leader then went on to say that they were almost identical to humans that their organism possess several functions which were different from humans. He told Dolores that they were a peaceful people and were ready to assist humans whenever necessary. She thank him and they returned back through the same path and on their way back he told her that in their planet lived humans who were there of their own free will and then looking straight at her eyes he asked her if she wanted to stay with them. At first she was confused, but then thought about it and told the alien leader that she did not want to stay. She was then given the traveling suit again and taken onboard the spacecraft by the two taller aliens. Strangely none of the other inhabitants bade farewell or goodbye to her, most seemed to ignore her. The return trip was again in total silence and before walking home the alien leader advised her not to tell anyone since no one would believe her anyway. Arriving at her front door she stopped and turned around but the craft and the aliens were already gone. To this day Dolores has always regretted not staying with the aliens when she was invited to do so.

Michael D, 15, was on his way home after camping out with two other boys; while crossing a grassy field, alone, he saw a bright object slowly approaching at low altitude, passing over some high-tension wires that crossed the field. He crouched down in some tall grass as the object landed, with a “bounce,” 100 feet away. The silvery object was “higher than it was wide” and had a “walkway” that ran around its circumference, and red and white revolving lights on the top, it also emitted a humming noise. A door ‘came down” out of which emerged a “huge” figure, who was hunched over, had long arms, and wore shiny, light reflecting clothing. In one hand it held a glowing box. Walking in a “stiff legged, bouncing” motion, the humanoid giant approached the grass where Michael was hiding; frightened, they boy sic’d his dog on the figure, who turned and re-entered the object. A few minutes later it took off. His companions returned a short time later and found Michael, still in the grass, moaning and very frightened. At the site the next day were found 7 holes in the ground, 2.5″ wide at the top and a foot dep. Two days later, Michael and several other members of his family saw a bright disc-shaped object, which had chased his sisters in a car as they drove up the long driveway of their house.

A man was returning home when as he was rounding a bend in a rural road he noticed an unusual object hovering about 20 feet above the ground. The craft was saucer shaped with a dome on top and an antenna like protrusion. It had a door like opening to the left of its center; the opening emitted an orange red glow from inside. It also emitted a faint humming sound. After two minutes the witness saw a figure walk back and forth in the opening of the object. The figure was dressed in a gray white metallic suit with a hood and was about six-foot tall. The craft itself was dull gray in color and appeared to have burnt areas along the bottom. The witness who was inside his vehicle all the time suddenly turned his head and saw a similar gray garbed figure about three feet way, he then heard a click and after two seconds a blast threw him against the vehicle’s console, he also heard a loud explosion, the car moved forward and the witness sped away form the area. He then drove to a local emergency room hospital where he was treated with what appeared to be pellet wounds.

A small mushroom-shaped craft crashed close to Edwards AFB. It was dull gray (gun-metal) in color with greenish lights, about 3-3, 5 m in diameter and 1.5-2m in height. 3 gray humanoids, including one that was still alive and a human female abductee (Lorraine Dvorak Cordini) were found onboard. The craft, bodies and survivors were moved to Edwards AFB. The witness Debbie Clayton reported that she heard a loud roaring sound and then a loud crash. Outside she could see a cloud of dust several blocks away. She walked over to the crash site and while other civilians were studying the craft, the military arrived, weapons drawn. One of the civilians had been taken photographs and an Air Force officer ripped the camera from his hands and smashed it but didn’t try to remove the film. The craft had no markings but seemed to be scratched. There were no windows or seams, and it appeared to be molded in one piece. The texture was smooth. The military told the witnesses to leave or be arrested. The military then covered the craft with a large canvas and lifted it with cables attached to the canvas. Once it was loaded, the military left and there was no mention of the incident in the newspapers. The cause of the crash was later established to have been a technical malfunction. Lorraine Dvorak Cordini later was able to remember (despite the fact that the military attempted to erase her memory with the use of drugs, hypnosis, etc) that she had been traveling onboard the UFO from a mothership in space. She was dressed in a tight-fitting pink body suit. Three extraterrestrial crewmen were returning her to Earth in a small pod-like craft. Lorraine soon found herself standing amid the wreckage. One dead alien was far to her left, barely visible from where she stood, another dead alien was about 20 feet in front of her. A military person was apparently kicking the alien’s dead body. The third alien crewmember was alive and standing about 20 feet from her, dazed, confused and disoriented. She too felt this way. Suddenly she felt a jerk as a military person grabbed her arms, brought them around her back and handcuffed her. As they were hauling her off she received an image in her mind of the “captain” onboard the mothership. It was a tall, 6’ humanoid in a long white gown, short brown hair, female, which was communicating to Lorraine how sorry she was for not being able to help her and the other aliens, for if they did they would be detected. Her sorrow was apparent. Other aliens were around her and the same feelings of helplessness and frustration were felt. The other aliens resembled small gray humanoids (similar to the ones seen in the movie “Close Encounters”). Lorraine was then thrown into the backseat of a black limousine. Her next memory was what surfaced in the hypnosis session.
Lorraine was lying on a cold metal table in a hangar. Three military persons stood to the left of the table. One may have been an officer because he had a different cap than the fatigue uniforms of the other two persons. Another uniformed military man was at Lorraine’s head and to the right and to his left was an alien whom Lorraine described as having a pumpkin-shaped head. He had appeared in a childhood experience that previously surfaced during the same hypnosis session. In the childhood experience he was in a spacesuit…Lorraine’s child’s mind saw him dangling outside the window in a deep sea diver’s suit. This alien was about 4 ft tall, his body bulbous and brown. His head bulbous and pumpkin like. Lorraine “heard” the alien thinking how great he felt about himself and how proud he was to be in the service of the earth military men…he had a smug attitude and the military man next to him showed contempt towards the alien. She was very confused and disoriented. Her next memory was of being yanked off the table and being dragged outside the hangar. There she saw many flashing red lights and screamed, “My God that isn’t a space ship that is the police, my God it is the police.” The military men then sat her on a bus and she ended up in San Francisco stranded and lost.

The witness was awakened by the faraway sounds of cats howling. He rose out of bed and opened a window facing the south. After hushing the cats everything became quite, he then walked out into the living room and was drawn to the pane glass door that led to the backyard. Outside he saw several hovering shimmering white lights. His next conscious memory was climbing back into bed. Much later under hypnosis he recalled looking at the lights and hearing an explosion. He then began walking through the house towards the lights. He felt himself walking through the closed back door. Outside he felt a cold sensation and then was engulfed by the lights and felt a tingling all over the body. He then noticed a short greenish glowing being with hard to discern features. It appeared to be composed of a liquid fluffy substance; it had two black dot-like eyes. Via telepathy the witness was told to follow the being, he was then shown a tall, thin pyramid like object with a halo around it and was told he was going to be implanted with knowledge. He also saw a hovering object with beautiful green, yellow, and red lights. He felt a strong love and compassion towards the being and felt that they were “good.”

A young woman named Masha (about 30 years of age) traveled from Crimea to an excursion to the city of Odessa; one of the important places of interest there where the famous Odessa underground catacombs (created during the construction of the city, when huge numbers of rock and stones were extracted from the area) which are found throughout most of the city. Important detail, Masha was not married and she was very tall, almost 2 meters and robustly built. The excursion was dangerous, since the underground labyrinths were intricate and complicated. There had been numerous cases of missing or lost tourists, so the guides strictly instructed the excursionists to move in chain groups holding well lit lights or candles. Their target site was the location of a famous partisan squadron hideout during the Second World War. Masha, being the tallest of the group was at the end of the “chain”. Suddenly as it seemed to her, she heard what sounded like a child weeping in one of the side passages. Being a kind and sympathetic person, Masha rushed to the scene thinking she was going to help a lost child and became separated from the group. Then she remembered nothing next, only a strong “kick” to her head and nothing more. Her disappearance caused a local stir. A search was organized for her that lasted several days, but with no results. Finally on the third day, Masha walked out of the darkness of the catacombs and stumbled upon another group of tourists. She was then brought back to the surface. After returning to Crimea she did not say a word of what happened to her parents. But her parent and neighbors noticed that she became reclusive, and uncommunicative, only occupied by her job and home chores. The sensation was the news of her unexpected pregnancy. Not understanding from who or how her parents were constantly asking her for sincere answers. But Masha gave sincere answers, she did not know how or who either. As soon as she had arrived from Odessa she immediately felt something wrong and different with her. (Unfortunately the witness was never subjected to regressive hypnosis).
Finally, Masha gave birth to a boy that was different from all others. He avoided other children and developed quickly, reading only adult oriented books and watching mostly scientific programs on television. When he graduated from school and entered the Institute (college?) he knew more than his lecturers and often even corrected them. In appearance, he looked quite human, except for his small height (very unlike his mother), thin body, large eyes, large head and small mouth. In most of the other features he looked like any other human. After 5 years in the Institute, he became fond of excursions just like his mother. And one time, in the second half of the 90’s he went on a tour across the Ukraine visiting the same Odessa catacombs as his mother did in 1971. There he vanished in a very mysterious manner, no one saw his disappear despite the fact that he was somewhere in the middle of “chain”. His body was never found.

A man named “Joe” and his family was camping when they saw an orange-blue light streak across the evening sky, it crossed the horizon in a matter of seconds. They all witnessed the impact into Elk Mountain and blow up a cloud of debris up into the air. Within about 10 minutes it started smoking and they could se it had started a fire. His father having heavy equipment and being in the logging trade immediately went to the family home and took his equipment to the area. The fire moved quickly nearly killing Joe’s father, and destroying his bulldozer, which he burrowed under just in the nick of time. The firestorm took two weeks to contain. By the next morning the military had shown up and blocked highway 130 in the nearby town of Saratoga and quarantined the town allowing nobody to come or go. Within a few hours the telephones, televisions, radios, and 2-way CB’s were dead throughout the town, snow and static were all they could get. The next day swarms of NASA vehicles started showing up in cars, trucks even limousines with NASA insignias. Joe noticed a crowd of people gathering at the corner. Curious he went over to see two big trucks with flat bed trailers side by side. It had this huge oblong egg-shaped lump on it under traps and nets, it was so big and heavy it caused the trailer to scrape the ground. They even had to lift the power lines for it on their way through town. They got no mail until the ordeal was over and it had been opened. During the ordeal there was no communication going in or out of the town, no newspapers, no nothing. After the ordeal the newspapers only reported the incident as a fire nothing else.

At the same time that numerous cattle were reported missing and disc-shaped objects were seen landing on several hills, a sheriff posse out in a stake out for the supposed cattle rustlers, caught sight of several agile short squat figures that appeared to have no problem in vaulting fences no matter how high. One night several of the guards saw the creatures attacking some cattle and shot at them apparently without any visible affect. The beings were described as about 4-feet tall and weighing about 400 pounds. They were endowed with great strength and their bodies were covered with hair. The beings apparently fled into some nearby caves and were followed by sheriff deputies and guard dogs. The dogs did not venture into the caves after the creatures. The men shone their flashlights into the cave and could see shiny eyes staring back at them. Numerous cattle carcasses littered the ground inside and the stench was unbearable. The beings left behind unusual footprints.

An unidentified nurse was driving to work one morning when she saw what appeared to be an “egg-shaped cage” suspended from a long line that came down from the sky. Enclosed behind vertical bars on the object was a figure of a man dressed in a shiny, form fitting outfit; he was too far away to be able to see features, but it appeared thick chested, and his arms and legs were proportionally thicker than of a normal person. He moved about inside the cage and the woman felt that he was definitely looking down at her. A newspaper delivery boy and a laundry deliveryman are also reported as having observed the object and its occupant, and all described that the face area of the figure seemed to be darker than the shiny suit. A report appears to have been made out to the police.

On a nearby hill he then saw a strange luminescence resembling an old “Lumiere” screen. Inside the screen he saw several thin silvery humanoid figures, with long faces and short cropped frizzy silvery hair. In a state of panic he hid in the bathroom and watched as the white light diminished in brilliance.

Miss Esther Clappison, noticing a light outside her home, went to the window and saw a rectangular window, illuminated from within by a white light, on an object whose shaped she could not make out, which rested on the ground. In the window was a man less that 5 ft tall, dressed in an olive green outfit that completely covered him, even his face. He seemed to be aware of the witness observing him from a distance of approximately 200 feet; he used his body and arm to apparently conceal some sort of control panel. He was also trying to attract the attention of another humanoid figure outside the object, visible in the light from the window, who was stooped over and picking up something from the ground-apparently rocks, since he “picked up” and didn’t “scoop up.” Although she tried to move closer to get a better look, Miss Clappison’s dog would not let her, and although trembling and cowering, he forced his mistress back inside the house. After the object left, the grass at the landing site was charred black over an area 20 ft in diameter.

Eleanor Harvey was waiting her turn to get into the bathroom and as she stood patiently she glanced out of the window and all of the sudden heard a noise. It sounded as if sounded had landed on the roof. Eleanor thought it was maybe workers working on the TV aerial. Her surprised deepened when “what sounded like the engine of a small aircraft was switched off,” to be followed straight after by a broad beam of light which shone through Eleanor’s window. The beam struck Eleanor at a point just above her eyes. Surprised, Eleanor drew back from the window, and then heard a shout. A face appeared, “beautiful and sad.” The beam was shining through the image but Eleanor could make out silver hair cut to shoulder length, a moustache and a neat square cut beard. The eyes were brown, a shade of hazel. The mysterious entity looked at Eleanor and she felt as if he was “stripping her very soul” although no word was spoken. She noticed that the being raised his right hand with his palm towards her in what she saw as “a sign of peace.” As she watched the image grew stronger so that eventually she could see all of him. He was dressed in a long gown, which shone, gold in the still present beam of light, but which she judged to be colored white. She noted one odd fact about the gown: there were no obvious joints or seams even though it covered his entire body to the feet. On his feet were leather sandals and around his waist, loosely hung, a gold cord, knotted, which almost reached the floor. This scene entranced Eleanor but the spell was broken by another scratching sound, followed by a noise like a motor being started. Then came the rattle on the roof and the invisible machine took off. She rushed to the window but couldn’t see anything to account for her encounter. But then heard a voice say: I am the light of the world. He that believeth in me shall have everlasting life.”

A farmer (involved in previous encounters) was ploughing his field when an object approached and landed, and its captain, an alien named “Ne-ato” emerged and addressed the farmer who asked to be left alone. The humanoid wanted him to come to the object, the “medic” of the crew had been shot by a farmer and was dying. The young farmer followed Ne-ato back to the craft and entered, and inside the “medic” was lying on the floor with a large shotgun wound in his chest. There was nothing the farmer could do, the humanoid died and the farmer was asked to leave. He said that he was later advised by Ne-ato that “they got the farmer who shot him.” He had been vulnerable because he had not been wearing his protective belt when he was shot.

They spoke briefly then the witness hiked mostly uphill for 15 minutes accompanied by the young man who seemed tireless. After some more talk the young man told the witness that he came from a distant planet. The witness asked for proof that he was telling him the truth. The young man then showed him a whitish colored oval shaped stone and told the witness that it was a communications disc, that it was used to contact his people. The disc supposedly absorbed the energy emitted from the body and transmitted it into a beam form similar to radio waves. The witness was able to touch the stone and received a tingling sensation that ran up to his head. The being then spoke to the witness about his planet of origin, which he described as a warm temperature planet with abundant flora and fauna, the atmosphere had a thick cloud cover and consisted of other gasses some of them familiar to earth, some not. He stated that his planet had two moons and traveled in an elliptical orbit around its sun; and he told him its name, but the witness could not pronounce it or remember it. He said that it was slightly larger than earth, had two polar caps and a total population of around 500,000,000, that population control was strictly adhered to, meaning reproduction was not a haphazard occurrence; that there were seventy major centers of population; that there was no pollution or disease. Life expectancy was 160 years. Their primary concern was of scientific achievements. In the morning after the witness woke up, the young visitor was gone.

The 15-year witness and two other men were in a surveying trip to the interior of Guyana when at dawn they were awakened by the sounds of animals causing a commotion near the river. They rushed to the river and saw a large silver saucer-shaped object hovering over the middle of the river. It appeared to be drawing up water in an upside down funnel shape into an iris-shaped opening in the underside. They watched for about 10 minutes then suddenly the waterspout fell back down and the craft shot straight up until it disappeared. There were a total of five witnesses to this incident. Several days later in the same area they chased a loud sound overhead in thick forest and managed to glimpse through the thick vegetation of a shiny object that suddenly disappeared. Their Indian tracker could not identify footprints they saw on a sandy beach they came upon with fire still burning around them in the sand. It was just flames in a ball that had no obvious source of fuel. They threw water on the fire but could not put it out. They found strange footprints at the campsite of a creature that appeared to have three legs. They found fruits on the beach with bite marks in them. The guide could not identify the fruit as from the area. The bite marks were small round teeth marks. Other prints seemed human but were space close as if the person had short legs as in relation to its feet. They found other claw mark footprints at the water’s edge. The area seemed devoid of wildlife, most unusual, not even insects were around the beach. This existed for about 20 feet in a circle around the beach camp area. At the perimeter of the circle life teemed as usual. Later when they visited the area again they found fresh footprints and the half eaten fruit did not show signs of decay and the area was still devoid of life. At the edge of the perimeter area, they found the carcass of a jaguar. The back legs were outside the area and were decomposing and the rest of the carcass that lay inside the area was still fresh with even blood from its mouth still liquid.

Over the next ridge and very much further down, he saw a very beautiful young woman, tall and slim, with a lovely figure, standing at the entrance to a large cave. “The incandescence of the surrounding area added to the serenity and calm of the sight.” He thought he could be suffering from nitrogen narcosis and he looked at the depth gauge, which revealed a depth of 230 ft down. Then she spoke “Hello, I have been waiting for you, do not be afraid, with me you are safe.” Skinner backed away but she smiled, walked toward him, and held out her hand. The hand felt warm, sensual, and safe, and his fear disappeared. She spoke again, “When you return to me I will be waiting for you, then you will stay with me forever. I have a gift for you.” She handed Skinner a small jar shaped like an amphora. As he ascended, he saw her waving as she slowly faded from view. Skinner surfaced still carrying the amphora, which was later identified as a Phoenician scent jar.

At the time when Stonehenge was not yet protected from the public, and on this particular night, a group of “hippies” decided to pitch tents in the center of the circle and spend the night. They built a campfire, lit several joints of pot and sat around smoking and singing. Their campout was abruptly interrupted by a severe thunderstorm that quickly blew in over Salisbury Plain. Bright bolts of lightning crashed down on the area, striking area trees and even the standing stones themselves. Two witnesses, a farmer and a policeman, said that the stones of the ancient monument lit up with an eerie blue light that was so intense that they had to avert their eyes. They heard screams from the campers and the two witnesses rushed to the scene expecting to find injured—or even dead—campers. To their surprise, they found no one. All that remained within the circle of stones were several smoldering tent pegs and the drowned remains of a campfire. The hippies themselves were gone without a trace.

A Finnish couple, Ben and Helen K left Gladstone late at night and upon arrival in Rockhampton found that only forty minutes had passed on a trip, which would normally have taken much longer. In addition to the rapid trip, they could not recall passing through intervening towns, although they did recall seeing an unusual green light at one stage. Their 1971 Valiant sedan was reportedly covered with a thin film of odorless oil, and unusual marks were noted on the car’s bonnet. Attempts at hypnotizing the couple were unsuccessful.

The 30-year old witness sat by the open window while her husband slept and noticed an orange glow coming behind one of the clouds, which she thought was the moon. As she watched, a large metallic object came out from behind the cloud, larger than a Boeing plane, of a squashed, rounded shape; in fact elliptical shape. It hovered there, trembling, shaking like a dry leaf. Then it stopped entirely and hovered straight above the science building on the University campus. Now two smaller objects, perfect replicas of the first, came out from beneath it and started oscillating in their flight around the larger one. The large UFO was silvery metallic in color but had a wide orange, phosphorescent band crossing it from side to side. Within this band the witness believed she saw oval shaped portholes of a light hue, and 3 or 4 shapes moving behind them. The large UFO emitted a broad, bluish beam of light that fell directly into the room the witness was sitting, it appeared to have been aimed at her. The small objects did not emit any light only the larger one. She compared the type of light to that of an oxyacetylene lamp. Every time it hit her it nearly blinded her. The light turned off briefly and then turned on again, at first gradually, then strongly. She now felt irresistibly drawn to it, and had to hold on to the back of the settee so as not to fly out the window. She felt that the light was having a hypnotizing effect on her and tried to call out to her husband but could not say a word. The beam of light turned on and off five times over a ten minute period until she finally managed to awaken her husband who came over to see the larger metallic object departing. It flew away at incredible speed in a northeasterly direction until it was lost to sight beyond the Sugar Loaf in the direction of Niteroi.

Jan-Ove Sundberg was in the woods above Foyers Bay when he saw in an open place in the woods a gray-black cigar shaped object about 30 ft long with a curved standing portion at one end, so that it had the profile of a huge smoothing iron. Three grayish entities of normal human size then appeared out of nearby bushes and stood together; they were dressed in what looked like diver’s suits and helmets. They approached the object and entered it by a door in the upper part of the curved portion; then the object rose vertically to a height of 50 ft and took off rapidly in a near-horizontal trajectory. Sundberg took a picture as the last of the occupants was boarding.

Three adults and four children were in an isolated area of the beach when they suddenly noticed a very tall figure that seemed to be trying to enter the water in a very clumsy manner. It was a very tall, well-built human like being, with very pale skin, lacking any pores. It had a large hairless head with a high forehead and large gray colored eyes. It wore a pair of green shorts and as it walked towards the shore it did so very stiffly, almost like a robot. It walked by the witnesses maintaining a straight steady gaze on them. The witnesses turned their heads for a second and when they looked back at the being it had completely disappeared, there was nowhere to go and he was nowhere in sight.

John R Renz had just been relieved from guard duty at Francis E Warren Air Force base and had stopped at the mess hall for a beer. On his way back to the barracks he came upon an unlit area of the base at the concrete reinforced bridge, which crossed over Cow Creek. For some unknown reason everything was deathly quiet around him. As he began to cross the bridge and just before he got to the middle of it a paralyzing sound resembling loud heart beats became evident. At the same time the area around the bridge lit up like daytime. There was also a heavy breathing like sound present. The bridge began to move in a wave like motion and then settled. Afraid he began to run to the other end of the bridge, before he reached the other end he noticed that he had dropped his pipe and went back to retrieve it. The bridge was still lit up and the loud sounds persisted. He found his pipe and stooped down to get it. He looked up, and was stunned to see only about 3 ft away a being about 6-7 ft tall staring at him. The being had a medium built as far as the chest, hip are, and upper legs. But the head was quite larger than normal, and it had long arms. It appeared to be wearing a wet suit for skin diving. The head covering and body suit were as one. The eyes were covered with what appeared to be a one-piece lens that went across both eyes as if it was a type of blast shield, but the nasal area joined in with it. From the nasal area was a silver gray tube that stretched at least one half feet long and went directly into its chest area. The silver gray tube was ribbed and looked just like a tracheal tube. The hands consisted of three long fingers that ended in claws. The feet were three toed and did not appear to have any heels. When Renz looked up to the being’s face, he was almost to a full standing position. The being then raised its right three fingered hand and motioned for him to come closer. Frightened the witness turned around and ran. His next recollection was of coming up on a military jeep and being picked up by two soldiers, still in the base. There was a seven-hour period of missing time. Years later under hypnotic regression Renz remembered being inside some kind of object in a cockpit along with the being. The being spoke to being telepathically. He remembers descending through clouds of vapor that had a reddish brown tinge. The craft then flew in between two huge mountains; there was no vegetation anywhere it looked like a rocky desert. Then he remembered following the being into a huge door on the side of a mountain and entering a small room. In this room there was a table that floated in mid-air. The walls and floor of the room were a silver gray color. On the floating table there was the carcass of a creature or being. The creature on the table had a larger than normal head and the face resembled that of a wasp. The eyes were large like wasp eyes, and had slits inside that looked like pupils. The eye coverings were that of multi-lens, it had a small jaw and a slit like nose. The creature was about four to five ft in length and it seemed to have an outer shell, as an insect would, like an exoskeleton. The color was tan to brown with a bluish gray tinge. The humanoid emitted an unbearable foul odor; it resembled a rotten egg & sulfur mix. It had three fingers on its hands and where the elbows where there was a sharp concave like spikes at least six inches long. The mouth was gasped open and the teeth were like small shark teeth. A clear liquid with a reddish substance was dripped on the table. The tall being then told the witness to exit the room. Outside the room he saw a strange saucer shaped craft with a wide front end and round tapered tail. The whole craft sat on two pillars, rectangular in shape and at least 50 ft between them. The being told him to go inside and sit on the left seat. On what appeared to be a control panel the witness saw numerous strange symbols. There was a sound like the harmonics of a powerful electric motor and the craft took off. Later the witness recalled the craft attacking a large mountainous area resembling a beehive. He could see numerous creatures inside. They appeared to be scrambling back and forth. They were about 200 of them and they appeared to be the same as the insectoid humanoid that was on the floating table. Later he the craft landed in the destroyed complex where the witness saw a live creature with the face of a wasp that was wearing a dark cape like cloak. Within its cloak it was carrying three small insect like creatures at least a foot long, their heads were triangular in shape with large eyes. At this point the tall humanoid arrived and shot the creature and the small insectoid-like humanoids dead. The witness was then returned back to the base.

John Hodges and Peter Rodriguez had just got into John’s car when they saw in its headlights 2 “brains” on the road about 6 ft away. Of a bluish color, a localized mist surrounded them. One was the size of a human torso, and had something red on it; the other was “the size of an overgrown softball.” Frightened, the young men took off for home. Under hypnosis in 1976, Hodges recalled that the larger brain had spoken to them telepathically, saying, “Take the time to understand yourselves-the times draws near when you shall need to. You shall not remember this incident until we meet again.” He also recalled that after he had arrived home and was still sitting in the car, he had a “dream” or vision of being in a large room with the brain, where there were control consoles all along the wall, and several gray skinned, bald humanoids with 6 webbed fingers and toes and thin lipped mouths, about 7 ft tall. On a TV-like screen were pinpoint of lights, which the brain told him were places on Earth where there was “too much power.” He was also shown 3-D pictures of atomic explosions, and of a planet destroyed by “too much power.” After feeling a “buzzing” sensation, he found himself back in his car. He thinks the experience was a “holographic projection”, because he noticed that behind him all was black.

Security guard Pietro Bongiorni was standing guard at the local thermal baths when he suddenly saw an “object” descending from the sky. As the object approached he noticed that it was a man-shaped figure that suddenly changed direction and headed towards him. Concerned he called out other witnesses and noticed that the figure flew in a position resembling that of someone riding on an “invisible” motorcycle. He described the figure as human with rosy skin, long black hair, and beard and very tall. He hovered near the witness, staring at him with penetrating black eyes. As other witnesses approached the figure disappeared in the direction of a nearby river at a low altitude.

Obeying an inner urge or mental communication, Paul de Brescia walked to an isolated wooded area. There, in a clearing he encountered two very tall humanoids, about 1.85m in height with well-proportioned bodies and long blond hair. They wore tight-fitting bluish metallic coveralls with wide white belts and white gloves. The witness felt a sense of compassion and understanding emanating from the humanoids. The humanoids approached him and communicated in French, telling him that they had come from the star system of Vega. They were here on a mission in an attempt to try to persuade humanity in changing its ways. After some more conversation one of the humanoids gave Paul something resembling a piece of chocolate, which he ate, he then became drowsy and later woke up in his apartment suffering a complete amnesia of the event. He was able to recall the incident on a later date.

The main witness and some others were on an isolated road on an incredibly clear night. There were four people in the car. Her husband who was driving, the witness was sitting in the middle and her friend Yvonne was sitting beside the passenger window. Another friend, Darryl, was laying on the back seat taking a nap. Yvonne was watching the sky when she saw two objects that were quite bright and seemed to be chasing each other. She pointed them out. All of them started to watch the objects (they woke Darryl up). The objects were clearly disc-shaped and made no discernable sound. The objects seemed to be playing tag with each other and performed impossible maneuvers. One of the objects left very quickly. It was as if it had completely left our known universe, or solar system, in an instant. When it sped off, the witness could feel it inside her body (perhaps a low frequency sound wave that can be felt but not heard?). The other craft stayed in the area. At this point the witness could “hear” herself talking with the occupants and she told them that she had heard about them and that some of them are good and some of them were bad and wondered what kind they were. She clearly heard, “Don’t worry. We’re just here to watch.” She thought back, “Okay, you watch us and we’ll watch you.” It then came down to just above treetop level and matched their car speed. She could see the outline of the trees against the light of the craft. It was clearly a saucer shaped object and it was spinning. There was no sound, even though it was now so close, but again she could she could “feel” it inside her body. At that point the witness conscious memory picks up when they are approaching the next town and the sun is coming up. At this time they were all quite awake. There was some missing time, at the minimum several hours. The witness suffered from nightmares after the incident.

The troops entered the clearing and came upon a large spherical object resting on four legs, more than a dozen humanoid figures were moving around the object, they were described as five-foot tall with grayish white skin and wearing silvery one-piece jumpsuits. They appeared to be carrying several types of instruments. The armed men approached the object and humanoids; a young corporal panicked and shot one of the humanoids that went limp. A taller humanoid then approached the soldier and made friendly gestures then struck him on the face, the soldier passed out. The beings then collected all their equipment and entered the object which retracted its legs then lifted silently straight up and with a burst of speed disappeared.

Osvaldo Nestor D’Annunzio was returning for a local ranch when he noticed a bright object quickly approaching his location. As the lighted craft approached to within 500 m he suddenly blacked out, he then woke up to see the object retreating from the area and then ascend disappearing behind a nearby eucalyptus forest. The witness felt heat emanating from the craft at its closest approach, he also saw that it was shaped like a child’s top, blue metallic in color, encased in a red glow and a flame shooting from the bottom. It was about 3m in length. When the object left the area, D’annunzio continued walking when he noticed that his arms were totally paralyzed and when he arrived at his home he had to kick on the door to attract attention. He remained in that state until about 1600 the next day. Incredibly for about 7 months he suffered from the same condition every night starting at midnight until early in the morning. He also suffered facial and scalp burns. Other witnesses in the area reported seeing the same or similar object flying low over the area, including one man who reported vehicle interference as a result of the passage of the object. D’annunzio was taken to a local military hospital.

Paulo Caetano Silveira, 27, a typewriter technician, found his car being followed by a red luminous disc while driving to his home in Itaperuna. At Tombos he reported the matter to the local police, but they did not take him seriously. Calmed, he started off again; this time, at a small village named Serraria, he encountered a black object on the road that turned red luminous and then blinding white, and his car engine died. The object, slightly larger than a Volkswagen, had small windows and an open door; near it were standing 3 little chubby beings approximately 20″ tall, with fair complexions and slanted eyes. They wore one-piece, sky-blue coveralls with high collars, and “Roman helmets” with spikes; they carried vivid red and blue lights and moved in a stiff, mechanical way. Two bright beams of light were focused on the witness’s car; its doors popped open. These beams pulled the witness from the car and into the machine, whose interior was brilliantly illuminated by white light, with little in the way of furnishings; inside were five more similar creatures. Then he heard “an infernal din” commence and believes the object flew some distance with him, but he was losing consciousness. The next thing he was aware of was being carried out and laid on the road beside his car; the UFO then rose vertically hovered a moment before shooting off laterally at staggering speed. The witness was left in a state of shock and nearly blind; 5 days later he still could not see well and was extremely nervous. His watch had lost 15 minutes.

He saw an object about the size of a Volkswagen car; in it a door opened and three diminutive beings 20″ tall jumped down; they wore “Roman type” helmets and carried dazzling lights. With a beam of yellow light they raised him 150 ft from the ground, where he was floated for about 15 minutes. When the headlights of an approaching car came into view he was gently lowered back down to the ground and the object and its occupants vanished.

Two beings, about 4 1/2 feet tall and with large, bald heads, wearing white robes, came down the ramp and communicated with the witness telepathically, giving him a “feeling of calm and security.” He asked if he could see the inside of the ship and the two entities escorted him aboard; inside, the ceiling was brightly lit and the floor had an acrylic like finish, while banks of computer like instruments lined one wall, and a master control panel contained five rows of four buttons each. Two high back chairs, on invisible swivels, faced the control panel. After his tour, “Luke” was escorted back down the ramp, and the ship soared out of sight.

Police officer Jerald Meiers was on his way home after shift change and as often stopped near the inland waterway to sit and relax. It was just about dark as he approached the usual spot, there was a kind of a mechanical buzzing sound in the air and as he walked forward he saw what looked like air on a hot highway, that is, it moved and shimmered but in a local area and not around it, perhaps like a vortex. As he got closer he seemed to hear the sound inside his head and then a form began to become visible, about nearly two feet off the ground. It was human-like, in that there were two arms and legs, and a torso and head, but in some form of suit like a spacesuit, bluish black or lead colored with helmet and a face plate, glass like. And then a voice in “English” which he heard in his mind asked, “Why do humans have war”? He thought about what he just heard and decided to answer, “Greed”? And then the figure went on to ask about the use and need for currency (money) and about atomic power and weapons and such. As the witness continued to listen and answer the figure became clearer, like a regular person would appear, and clearer in voice with less static or sound. Meiers could barely see inside the helmet but there was a face, barely visible, rather human like, he could not see ears but frontal aspects like eyes, a small mouth, a thin nose and a rather normal forehead and cheeks, seemingly bluish gray in color, this was possibly due to some filter effect on the face shield. After what seemed like minutes it faded back into the vortex or shimmering round area in the area. The whole time the “vortex” was about 2 ft off the ground. As to the questions asked, specially the ones dealing with atomic power or weapons Meiers was not sure of the answer and told the entity that he “would get back to him”. However he returned to same spot over the years but never encountered the entity again. The only thing that he thinks might be a residual result of the encounter was numerous visions of technical drawings of lens-shaped craft and systems that power them and plasma based weapons systems and advanced flying devices. These visions come to Meiers in his dreams. He contacted his shift commander about the encounter but was told to shut up and not to tell anybody.

A 37-year old female teacher was on her way home after work. It was cold and rainy and she arrived at the bus stop at 2045. She had waited for the bus for some minutes when a dark “car” stopped in front of her and the man in the car asked her where she was going. When she answered that she would be going some 20km in the direction of Turku, the driver offered her a lift to the bus stop in her hometown. She accepted and stepped in. At once she noticed that there was some kind of transparent magnetic or electrical field between her and the driver. The driver, whom she could see only in profile, was in a strange way elegant and of slender built. She was astonished to see that he wore an outfit silvery-gray in color. However, it was pretty dark inside, so she was not able to see additional details. The driver asked her questions about her work, about the pupils and so on, displaying an unfamiliarity with school life. She also noticed that the “car” was driving soundlessly and some 1-2 meters above the surface of the road. Strangely, no other traffic met them, nor passed by, although the road was usually very transited. She could see the familiar landmarks. When they came to the bus stop, she asked to be led off, but the driver said he wanted to continue the conversation. She refused since she had little children waiting for her @ home. The driver then asked if he could continue the conversation some other time, but she refused saying that her husband would not understand, the driver then asked where her husband was, to which she replied that he was in Sweden on business, so she had to hurry and tend to the children. She bade goodbye and then the driver also bade goodbye, after which the car door opened by itself and she stepped out. As she watched the car disappeared, although there were more than one km of straight road visible. She suffered from hot flashes immediately after the encounter and later from a severe headache, a reddened face and static electricity.

Comments: It is very interesting to note that on the same year a similar “car-like” UFO or extra-dimensional craft was reported in St Petersburg Russia, just across the border from Finland.

Three hunters found several 12-14″ circles imprinted in the soil about 12’feet apart, suggesting to them UFO landing marks; they set up camp nearby. About 1715 a large yellow white light was seen to land near the site; then a smaller yellow white light emerged from the spot and traversed to the desert area below the mountains much faster than a man could travel. When one light began to approach the hill where they camped, one suggested trying to signal with their flashlights; the other rejected the idea, and their apprehension increased when they heard the braking of branches nearby and an unintelligible cry, although they actually saw no beings. They left the area in haste. The next day at the site they found two holes 2″ in diameter, identical to the ones they had noted in the “landing mark” triangle.

The third incident involving Paulo Caetano Silveira occurred in the company of his friend, Elvio B. While the two were driving back to Itaperuna from Natividade De Carangola, Paula Caetano’s car began to malfunction; he pointed this out to his friend, he replied that he was drowsy and wanted to sleep, as before, the car was displaced off the road and stopped, and the same object again focused on the car, the door opened, and Paulo was transported to the object, accompanied by the same type of entity as described previously, but this time the being was dressed in pink. The witness was examined by a machine that extended from the ceiling; blood samples were taken and he was shown several panels, on one of which was displayed the town plan of Itaperuna; the second panel seemed to show an atomic explosion. The whole episode lasted no more than five minutes, at which time he recalls being back in the car. His friend, on the other hand, claimed that when Paulo said they were being followed by an object, it was nothing but a bus; he could in no way support the encounter with an object, although he could not account for his finding the car by the side of the road, the door open, and his friend on the ground nearby in a stupor. Paulo was taken to SAMDU Hospital again, where doctors found a wound on his arm. Police could find no trace of blood in the car.

The 23-year old witness was walking home after visiting his fiancée when he spotted a light over the roadway, the light flashed and turned into a greenish bullet shaped object. A beam projected from the object and hit the ground; from the beam a very tall being wearing a silvery one-piece suit emerged. It glided towards the witness who was then paralyzed and could not move. The being moved its hand up and down over the witness face that felt a tingling sensation. He also felt that information was being somehow drawn out of his mind. Eventually the figure returned to the beam of light and was pulled up into the hovering craft, which vanished, in a brilliant flash of light. The witness then ran for a mile until he met a police car.

Paulo Caetano Silveira’s fourth “contact” occurred near the bridge over the Carangula River outside Itaperuna. He was invited inside the object and heard its occupants “jabbering” with each other unintelligibly, although he never observed their lips move. He did understand their message that they were on a mission of peace, preparing people for eventual contact.

Following a pre-arranged with mysterious entities Uri Geller and Andrijah Puharich drove to the appointed place near Tel Aviv. There they saw a bluish light pulsating over a small square of open land. Geller felt an irresistible attraction towards the light. They exited the car and heard a cicada like electronic noise. The light was attracting Geller towards it. He remembered asking Puharich and another witness, Iris, to wait and he set off towards the fascinating light. As he approached it he felt like he was entering a sort of trance. Everything became silent around him and he felt as he had entered some type of “vacuum” (Oz factor?). The very air had changed quality. He then remembered seeing a strange “building” having no discernible shape whatsoever. Soon a shapeless dark figure parted from the strange building and approached him. It put something in his hand. Geller felt a sudden fit of fear and ran back to Andrijah and Iris. Before he reached them he realized what was in his hand: it was the very same pen that had mysteriously vanished from their experiment box. Andrijah was able to compare an inscription on the pen that had been previously unknown to Geller.

Two youths, Tom Yates and Glenn Schiller, were parked near a golf course “keeping watch for unusual phenomena,” when they saw a figure of humanoid appearance, closely surrounded by a mist-like aura, floating through trees about 20 yards away. It had a dog like head, pointy ears, and a long nose; the head was brown in color, with no eyes or mouth visible. Although it was clear of the ground, they could see no legs. The young men said it appeared to be 6-feet tall, with a body of “lump appearance.” It headed in a direction away from Waikerle, and the two moved their car about 300 yards towards the golf course, at which time they saw an object “about the size of a semi-trailer” and in the shape of a half-dome, resting on the ground; windows were seen on its surface and a row of lights encircled it, wile several “spotlights” pointed upwards. After watching it for about 15 minutes, the object appeared to “dissolve,” disappearing in 10 seconds. The entire incident lasted approximately 30 minutes.

Manuel Da Silva E Souza, the manager of an airfield at Itaperuna, observed on the ground a transparent egg-shaped object, lit up by a powerful bluish light. The witness approached to within 150 feet of the object, which was about 8 feet high and less than that in width, and could see a humanoid figure less than 3-foot tall and wearing a khaki uniform with boots who walked around the UFO once, then stopped and seemed to be looking at the witness for a minute or two. Then the being rose up into the air above the craft, and entered it feet first. De Silva could see two other similar entities inside the transparent object. After the first had entered, these others put their hands on something beside them, and the craft rose into the air and flew off. The incident lasted no more than 4 minutes.

Evita Ochones, a goat herder, saw a UFO with a curved top and a flat bottom bearing a brilliant light, which made a “sizzling” sound, that hovered above Tulacingo and then landed about 150 feet from her. The noise ceased, and a door opened; inside the object she could see by a reddish light several figures clad in white one piece suits, with hoods fitting closely about the face. Their noses were slit-like, and she could see no mouths. Three or four of them, carrying instruments of some sort, got out and walked about, taking soil samples; they remained in the neighborhood of the UFO for about half an hour before reboarding the object. Then it rose up, with a sizzling noise, and took off at great speed. Landing mark traces of two skids and three leg marks were found at the site. Residents of Tulacingo, Pacheco, and other points made numerous sightings of the object.

Reggie Bone, his wife, and two other couples were driving down a deserted road early in the morning around Christmas time, when they saw a figure walking up the road toward them in a “frogman’s ” outfit, complete with flippers and carrying something in his hands. They could not see his facial features, and the wetsuit covered his body and did not appear wet. The nearest body of water was Black River, about a quarter mile away and not easily accessible to that part of the road. Temperatures were below freezing and the witnesses were so taken aback its appearance that none of them said anything for several miles then one said, “Did you see that?”

Efrain Albino saw in a wooded area behind his house a pyramid shaped object on three leg-like supports on the ground. A door opened on its side and a small ramp was lowered to the ground. Three creatures carrying a long tube-like object then emerged down the ramp. The beings were of different heights, one tall, one medium, and one short. A bright light was emitted from the long tube like object partly blinding the witness. The beings were described as thin, with a little larger than normal heads, and large pointy ears. They all had large black eyes, very small noses, and mouths. All wore tight fitting silvery outfits. Albino became frightened and ran back into his house. The next day he found scorched marks at the side of the landing and noticed an unpleasant odor in the area. Other locals had apparently seen the object landing.
