THOMPSON (MANITOBA : CANADA)
Mrs D F Le Marquands had just entered her house when she heard a beeping sound and, looking out of the window, saw debris swirling around the house in a circular motion. Going outside, she saw her husband and 5 children staring into the sky. After a while she was able to see the cause of the disturbance, a large oblong or cuboid object, revolving in an anti-clockwise direction. As the thing rotated, the sides alternated between dark and aluminium coloured but there were no openings or markings on the completely silent object. Mrs L then heard a sound and saw a neighbour’s boy holding down her 8 year old daughter. After the object had moved off at a 45 degree angle, levelling off, hovering and then leaving ion a level course towards the south-east, the children revealed that the girl had been lifted off the ground about 1m towards the object, her skirt, blouse and hair rising straight up. The little girl remembered nothing of the incident and was the only one of the children not terrified.

NORTH ATLANTIC
A family on a yachting holiday were some 350km off Cape Cod when they encountered a huge vessel surfacing. Along its coning tower was painted the name “Thresher” and the witnesses noticed a gash along its side. Two men on its deck were apparently looking at the yacht through binoculars, Suddenly the object rose above the water and seemed to implode and sink. 
  • Lamont-Brown 1972 p43
  • Evaluation: Presented as the ghost of the lost submarine Thresher, but as MacDougal points out that vessel did not have its name written across its coning tower! I suspect that the original source was an article in Fate magazine and was a piece of literary imagination.

She saw a discoid object, illuminated by a bright blue-white light,. approaching the field. The thing slowed, hovered for a moment at ground level and then landed. On landing, the upper section became dark and moonlight was reflected from from its metallic looking surface. After a short while, the object ascended at a shallow angle and disappeared in the distance.

When she returned the apparitions had vanished. Two small marks were found on the outside of the wall, near the window, which marks could only be removed by scraping. The marks even reappeared after being covered with paint.

WARMINSTER (WILTSHIRE : ENGLAND)
A woman who had gone to answer a call of nature was attracted to a copse by a buzzing sound like a swarm of bees. She then heard a rustling sound and saw a tall man wearing a tight fitting suit made of dark, glistening material, and a round helmet come towards her with a heavy plodding walk. The woman felt hypnotised by his staring eyes and almost rooted to the spot. The man would not let her get past. When her husband ,along with Bob Strong and Sybil Champion, arrived on the scene they also saw the man, but when he was caught in the beam of their torches, he vanished. The woman was hysterical and attempted to return to the scene at one point. As they were driving away they heard a sound like a dynamo, and saw a red torpedo shaped object take off, hover, then accelerate away. The next day a crescent shaped depression and strange footprints were found at the site.

It appeared to be a triangle 2.5m tall, 7 wide Robert braked and both closed their eyes to await the impact. They felt a bump but on opening their eyes nothing could be seen. The local police did not take the incident seriously. However the accident was investigated by the state police and highway patrol, who found only skid marks at the scene. Next day Richardson returned to the site and found a piece of metal in the road. Marks on his car bonnet and bumper suggested a collision with an object taking off. On the 18th and 23tdc Robert was visited by mysterious men, those on the second occasion being foreign looking, who made threats against is wife. The metal consisted of iron and chromium, with traces of nickel, manganese and silicon.

It then descended down to the beach, gliding along it at ground level, illuminating the area. It turned north and disappeared behind some bushes. This was repeated about 15 minutes later, 600m to the north. The light reappeared again at 0120 hours. It had a bright red edge, with a deep red centre, was very brilliant and appeared to be flickering.

A group of children (Patricia Despoix or Depoix (aged 5 or 6), Remy Ravier (10)-the son of the village carpenter), and Hugh and Michelle Bailly) were going for a walk to Clavieres Wood about 500m away, when Patricia ran back crying that she had seen three or four “little Chinamen”. They were sitting behind a bush, talking in an sort of singsong voice. One of them got up as if to grab the girl. A few minutes later Remy saw a sort of beam of yellow light going straight up from behind a bush. The children ran home, and Remy’s sister Joelle went to investigate but saw nothing and returned home. At 1600hrs. however she went back to the spot with her friends Marie-Reine Mainot (or Mairot), Hubert from the first party and his older sister Monique (15). Joelle and Marie-Reine sat on rock looking towards a plateau which was out of sight of the other two. They saw a little black creature running along this plateau at about 40k/h, only 25 m away. It was about 1.1m tall, human shaped, but featureless head, as if it were enclosed in a helmet, the upper part of which reflected light, and with a protruding stomach. He was dressed in a tight fitting suit with a short jacket, which trailed behind him. His legs seemed unusually short, but nothing could be seen of his arms. He moved in large jumps, his feet just touching the ground, and disappeared into the hedge in the direction of the woods. The two girls went to the hedge where he had been seen, there they heard a sing song voice and hurried away. Late marks were found at this spot, where the grass was yellow, hot, dry and giving off an odour. Marks were also found along the route. On the mornings pf the 14 and 15th at about 0600hrs. a farmer had seen a black creature 1.1m tall, 30cm wide among his cattle. On both occasions in ran off into the woods at terrific speed.

MILLERTOWN (NEW YORK : USA)
Mrs Emma Funk was driving on Rt 22, north of Millertown, when a black, shiny object about the size of a baseball flew towards her car, brushed against her windscreen and veered off to the left. As it touched the car a brilliant light lit up the car and her engine and headlights died, and she became stunned. When she recovered consciousness, her car was pointing in the opposite direction, there was a cracked area, the size of a fist, in the windscreen, and she seemed to have a time gap of about 15 minutes, and she was saying “why did you pick on me”. Under hypnosis she recalled static on the radio just before the object appeared and of a “them” who turned her car around and struck her across the chest with a sort of rod.

BOARDMAN (OHIO : USA)
Rev Anthony de Polo, an assistant pastor in the Bethel Assembly of God Church, was awakened by a loud oscillating sound which seemed to reach into the ultra sonic, and the feeling that he ought to go downstairs. As he reached the foot of the stairs, he saw, through
the window, a being of human appearance, 1.5m tall, dressed in a tight fitting silver “space suit” with five finger gloves and a helmet through which features could not be made out, standing in the driveway, emitting a glow. He felt impelled to go outside, where he received three other telepathic messages. “You have nothing to fear, I will not harm you, and I know you will not harm me”; “Danger I must go”; and a further message de Polo felt unable to reveal.” The sky was strangely illuminated. When de Polo looked back to the figure, he saw that it had changed into a formless light blob, which soon faded out. He went back to bed without telling his wife and fell asleep immediately.

Mr L M, a 40 year old salesman, was inspecting his gardens close to the cemetery, having only just opened the gate, when he saw a very bright green glow emanating from the hut at the bottom of the garden. He did not think much about it until an exceptionally brilliant green flare burst in front of him, and a force threw him to the ground. As he lay paralysed, he saw two indistinct silvery shapes cross the wall into the second garden. Recovering some of his strength he went to the wall but could find no trace of a passage. Some metres away were two furloughs, which met to form a V shape. Tested by a Geiger counter some hours later, he was said to have shown symptoms of receiving a considerable dose of radiation, “which showed no similarity to the signals emitted by a nuclear disintegration” (?).

Pedro Petrelli heard a loud nose like a burst of hurricane force wind and saw a bright object pass over his house and stop above some trees 50m away. The thing seemed to be about 7m in diameter and displayed a circular movement, giving off yellow, blue and white lights. About 20 other people also saw this. Next morning it was found that two trees showed cuts at a height of 5m and a third at 3m. On the ground were fragments that resembled burnt wood, the insides of which, however, looked like fused glass. Chemical analysis of these fragments showed that they contained sulphur, silicon and copper and had been heated to more than 1600c.

Barbara Fawcett (18)was driving from Pompano Beach to her mother’s house in Islamorda, when she became terrified by a large yellow light, which appeared to pursue her car, about 2-2,5m above the ground, emitting a high pitched roaring sound, at speeds up to 160kph. The light appeared as if to be about to land on the car and was covering the road. It went away at the approach of another car. Barbara pursued herself that she had imagined things, but on the way home, with her sister and her poodle, as they reached the Jewfish Creek area the dog began to tremble and they saw a large brilliant yellow light rise out of the swamp to the west of the road. It appeared jagged and moved up and down and side to side. It descended to less than 5m above the road, ahead of the car, so that the girls feared a collision, but at the last moment in veered to the right under the power lines and landed on a sand dune by the side of the road, where it dwindled to a pin point. Less than a minute later, however, the large light reappeared and followed them back to Pompano Beach, where they reported it to the authorities. A search revealed a large scorched area on the sand dune where it had landed

KAISERSLAUTERN (RHINELAND-PALATINATE : GERMANY)
An American serviceman stationed at Klaber Kaserne in this town was taking a stroll, coming down a hill track into a valley when he noticed a red-orange light to his right over the treetops. He thought that it was the sun until he realised that the sun was on the opposite side of the valley. He saw beams of light through the trees as the object came down to ground level 350-400m away. At first the light was too intense for any detail to be seen, but then, when the light dimmed, he saw that it was an oval 20-25m long, 6-9m wide and 8-12m thick at the middle. The thing was metallic grey about halfway up to a metallic ring, about 60cm wide, on which there were portholes. The object tilted left to right and back to front as it hovered at 1m altitude. After, at most, 5 minutes, it rose up, very slowly at first , its colour getting brighter, until at less than 30m it was dazzling again. It then swooped over the trees at a 60-70 degree angle until it was out of sight in less than a minute. It was silent and the witness felt a change in the atmosphere.

It turned and passed the tower to the east, stopped and hovered again, illuminating the ground with a blue-white light. The thing then circled the tower; as it did so his CB radio emitted a whining sound, the pitch of which varied and other interference. The object then moved away towards Mt Hamilton, at the speed of a slow jet, leaving a trail. The observation lasted 6 minutes.

It had a powerful blue and white glow, no visible superstructure and made neither sound nor wake. The thing paced the ship for 15 minutes at a somewhat faster speed, and then dived passing right under the ship, vanishing into the depths of water. The witnesses ruled out the possibilities that it was either a submarine or a whale.

CHURCHVILLE (NEW YORK : USA)
Sidney Zipkin (50), a guard at the town park, was driving through the main parking lot when he came across an object 15m long, with a round centre and extended sides, resembling a fat cigar, with green flashing lights underneath land. He stopped his truck within 30m of the object, and was surprised to see two “midget like men” in shiny black uniforms rush past his truck and enter the object, which took off vertically into the night sky. His superior Clarence Johnson confirmed that Zipkin was “white as a ghost” when he arrived back at the park. Both men went to investigate but found nothing.

Bridget Kelly 23 and her husband had just dismounted from a bus (or were driving home with their three children) when she drew his attention to a light like a shooting star in the sky. It was an object that descended rapidly from the North East at a steep angle. It then stopped and hovered at an angle over the rooftops. They could now see that its top portion was a dome that glowed orange, in the lower portion of which was a “window” from which came a sharper light that flashed on and off as if the thing was rotating. The lower portion was dark. The object was silent and the women noted an absence of sound during the episode, which ended when the object swung against the direction of travel, then “skimmed” across the rooftop to the west. Afterwards she felt elated Bridget claimed episodes of trance like states, premonitions etc. Under hypnotic regression in 1992 she recalled being surrounded by people with large eyes, who performed some sort of operation on her stomach, and recalled a tall muscular man, with golden or red hair, wearing a grey jumpsuit standing at a console, holding a sort of clipboard

CHINGFORD (ESSEX : ENGLAND)
A courting couple were sitting smoking in their car on an Epping Forest bridle path, when they noticed some red lights near the end of the path, 140m away, apparently moving between the trees. This was followed by a sort of firework which through up red lights to a height of 90 cm. Illuminated by this light was a very small figure about 90 cm tall, with a little round head, two arms and dressed in a white mackintosh which reached down the ground. A few moments later another firework lit up, illuminating another dwarf. Each display lasted about 30 seconds, the whole episode 7 minutes in all. The couple had come to the conclusion that they had seen some tiny children letting off fireworks, when they saw a bright white light advancing towards them at walking pace, bobbing up and down and from side to side. They thought it was a man with a lantern, until it suddenly swooped in on their car and they now saw it was a bright, but not blinding, light with no disenable edges or features. When the driver switched on his headlights he saw that this light was hanging unsupported. As the couple tried to drive away, it seemed about 10 seconds before their car would move. As they reversed away, a man ran from a nearby house. It transpired that he and his wife had seen these “fireworks” for some time and that the lady had locked herself in the bedroom in panic. The couple informed the police that boys were letting off fireworks in the forest, but a police search revealed nothing.

RIO DE JANIERO (RIO DE JANIERO : BRAZIL)
Union lawyer, Jonil F Vieira and his driver, Amauri B da Silva, were driving on the Miguel Pereira Highway when, 15km out of Rio they saw two red lights to their left, 500m away. They then saw many lights like a fairground in an area where no lights should have been, it having only a paved road. Though puzzled, they thought it was something to do with the military and drove on at 80kph. The lights to the left went out. When the two men reached Mangueira district, they saw the lights in the sky to the right ahead of them. The object flew ahead of them from one side of the road to another, flashing in response to their flashing their headlights, as though someone was testing their reactions. The object then seemed to move out of sight but on the Bareo de Javari Road near Sito la Choumiere it reappeared. The object now hovered about 80cm above the ground in the woods and projected one yellow and one blue light beam. When the witnesses turned off their lights, they saw that these strange lights were on an immense dome, moving towards them from a spot 300m away. They saw nothing more during the rest of their journey to the Francisco Fragoso holiday camp. There, the administrator Nelson G Ferreira had forgotten his keys and the three men were manoeuvring the jeep through a side gate when they saw a brightly lit rotating cupola, with two brilliant lights, one red, the other yellow, and sweep from behind the hills to the horizon. Both the men in the jeep experienced painful headaches that seemed to have been imitated by the “thought from the object”. Vieira displayed a yellowish tinge to his face; his reflexes were inhibited and had a curious feeling that he had lost weight, though he had not actually done so.

CARACAS (FEDERAL DISTRICT : VENEZUELA)
Horticulturist Mr de S was sleeping was sleeping in the family car with his wife and teenage son, in case of repetition of the earth tremors which had stuck the area, when they both observed a luminous white object 8-10m diameter, like two dishes lip to lip. It was hanging above the palm tree outside their front door, illuminating the yard and greenhouse, at 30m altitude. An opening appeared in the craft and a devise resembling a broad bottomed light bulb lowered itself to just above the ground. Nothing could be seen connecting it to the main object. A door opened in this devise and a small man, dressed in luminous silvery overalls and helmet, emerged. No real details could be seen, but they could see he was not much more than 90 cm tall, silhouetted against the side of the house about 4m away. They saw vapour around the creature’s head, like breath. The dwarf stooped face down, picked up some stones from the gravel path, studied them for a moment, then appeared to communicate with someone in the large craft. After a while he dropped the stones, stepped back into his devise, which then re-entered the craft. As soon as the opening on the latter closed, it took off over the hills. During the time the object was hovering they heard a humming sound, and saw the trees move, though there was little breeze. The being kept looking towards them. The next day at least three neighbours confirmed that they had seen a glowing object over the house.

Opening his eyes, he saw a creature by his bed, who soared out of the open window when Pedro leapt out of bed. When he went to the window to investigate Pedro was blinded by multi coloured lights on the ground, forcing him to turn away. He dressed and went out to investigate, but was deterred by the rain. Next day, along with friends and neighbours, he found semicircular scuff marks on the street and footprints of a reddish dust leading to his balcony. The creature was small with a large head, agile and dressed in a suit which appeared to be made of flexible metal, by which Pedro had tried to seize it, before it escaped. At the same time three neighbouring youngsters, Carmen Ortega (17), Jose Andres Pasqual (14) and his brother Jose (8) had been awoken by bright lights and saw a circular devise on the ground opposite Pedro’s apartment.

The being claimed he had arrived in a vehicle the size of the doctor’s examining room and did not use doors to enter buildings. He also warned that a terrible earthquake, caused by a fissure in the earth’s crust filling with water, would devastate the city. The being said all this in perfect Spanish which he claimed to have learned from monitoring radio broadcasts. Two days later Vegas suffered a heart attack.

The couple were awoken by the barking of their German shepherd dog, which died down after15 seconds, as though the dog was walking back to the house. Looking out of their window, they saw a large hemispherical object, with a fluorescent glow at ground level, in a neighbouring pasture, shining a compact beam of light, 15m long, towards the milk house. At this point they notice that both the dog’s barking and the usual night sounds had stopped. After what seemed like an hour, they both heard the sound of a heavy person walking on the sand and gravel track. They were both very afraid as their caravan door was slightly ajar, owing to the lie of the ground and Robert got his gun. The footsteps were heard twice again, each time going south to north. 
An hour after the footsteps were heard the first light of dawn appeared. The uncanny silence was then broken by the dog whimpering like a puppy and then barking. This was followed by a muffled sound like a huge generator that faded away after some seconds. Everything was the normal and no traces were found at the site. About the same time, his wife’s uncle who lived 2.5km to the north was awakened by the barking of his three dogs, but on investigating found nothing.

It was about 35m diameter. Between the object and the couple were three strange beings who were either naked or wearing tight fitting yellow “jersey suits”, playing around like children. As the couple approached the beings ran towards them as if to greet them. Thinking they were some rabble from the city, Inacio ordered his wife into the house, grabbed his Winchester .44 rifle and shot the nearest being in the head. At the same time a jet of green light was fired at him from the craft, hitting him in the chest, and he fell back to the ground. Maria rushed out to defend her husband and grabbed the rifle, but the three beings ran back into the craft which took off vertically, with a buzzing sound like a swarm of bees. When the ranch owner flew in from Sao Paulo three days later he found Inacio complaining of numbness and tingling in his body, headaches, trembling in his hands and head and continuous nausea. The owner was sufficiently alarmed to have him taken to a clinic in Goiania 300 km away. There the doctor found burns on his trunk and head forming a perfect circle 15 cm in diameter. The doctor first suggested Inacio had come into contact with poisonous plants, but hearing his story did blood tests which showed he was suffering from leukaemia. Inacio died from this disease on October 11th, having wasted away and become covered with yellow white blotches. His wife burned his clothes and blankets on his death, according to his instructions.

JOYCEVILLE (ONTARIO : CANADA)
Neon light salesman Stanley Moxton (25) was driving between Kingston and Smith Falls on his way to Montreal, and had just passed Joyceville, when, in a field near the Glen Gove Road, he saw a green light. Thinking that something unusual was going on he switched off his lights and turned into a side road. When he was close to the puzzling light and facing it, he turned on his headlights again. When he did so, they illuminated a huge object 10m diameter, like two plates rim to rim. Outside were two figures, about 1.2m tall, dressed in white uniforms and helmets. When the headlights caught them, they “almost flew” back into the craft which took off soundlessly and flew away at high speed. No traces were found. Police confirmed that Moxton was sober.

KOLMARDEN (OSTERGOTLAND : SWEDEN)
In the neighbourhood of Kolmaarden a 15 year old boy and his girlfriend of the same age were out strolling on a road adjacent to an industrial lot, when they noticed a red light over the wood coming from the south and descending close to the ground. No details were visible behind this light. They felt trapped as though someone was watching them and quickly left the scene, taking a short cut across a field. As they got nearer home, however, curiosity got the better of them and they went back onto the road. They then saw the light move away to the east. The couple now reached an empty and padlocked cabin, around which, to their surprise, were strange light phenomena, both inside and outside. The former consisted of small yellow lights floating around one of the rooms, the latter a sort of cone of light moving up from the ground on the outer wall facing the road. They could also here sounds like thumps on a plank. While the youngsters were still taking this in, the red light appeared again from the west, moving on a curved trajectory towards the north at treetop height. This red light changed to white before apparently landing in a cornfield and going out. The couple then ran back to his house, but finding it unoccupied went to his sister’s house nearby. 

Just as they arrived there, a luminosity suddenly appeared 3m in front of them and 3m above the ground. It seemed like a large torch which uttered a curious whistling sound. At the same time they heard fast gentle steps coming from a brook. The couple walked forward, at which a figure jumped, almost flew, out of the bushes, then stood completely still not more than 10m away. It was a being 1.3m tall dressed in some sort of dark clothing, standing with its head bent down and arms close to the body. It was difficult to make out details in the poor light, and the girl, thinking it was a friend playing a trick, stepped forward. As she did so the figure raised its head and arms in a jerky unsteady fashion. The boy then realised it was something inhuman and dragged his girl back. They both now saw that the being was carrying a box with a sort of projection which was directed towards them. A sort of gleaming light played at the top of this projection. As they stood rooted to the spot in panic, they could see that the creature had an oversized head, covered on top with a dark hood, which went down in V between the eyes, which were large, dark and had a horrible penetrating expression. The place where the mouth should have been was an X shaped marking. The arms and legs were very thin, the latter being bandy. As far as they could tell the creature wore a sort of blue-black coverall, with a kind of belt at the waist. Around its ankle joints, encircling each joint, was something resembling a cable 2m thick which flashed for an instant. The creature look paradoxically both “tough! and unsteady. The couple then got themselves quickly admitted to the house. The boy’s sisters confirmed how shaken the couple were, as did his mother when she arrived. Next day traces were found in the form of unusually damaged apples, strange footprints, 25 cm long, very deep and showing 3 toes. On the night of the 24/25 one of the sisters heard sounds outside the house and a light from an electric torch shone in through the window, footsteps were heard and two shutters were found dislodged from the window.

WODONGA (VICTORIA : AUSTRALIA)
Ron Hyde(s) was motorcycling at 110k/h between Melbourne and Sydney along the Hulme Highway, when about 16 km south of Wodonga, he was forced to stop by a bluish white light which almost blinded him. After removing his sun glasses and whipping his eyes, he was able to see, in a wide grass clearing sloping down from the road some 30m away, a metallic object hovering about 1m above the ground. It had a dark underside, a polished silver top and resembled two saucers, one inverted over the other, separated by a metallic band 25-30 cm deep. The object was surmounted by a small dome, some 1.5m tall, on top of which was what looked like a round, flat topped bell about 30 cm deep. On the dome was a black, crescent shaped marking, 30 cm high, 5 cm wide. The whole machine was between 8-9m wide and 4.5m high. Ron moved towards the object, but his attention was momentarily caught by what he thought was a passing car, but on looking to the road, no car was visible. When he looked back he saw two figures 1.5m tall, dressed in seamless metallic overalls, standing on his side of the object. They wore opaque “fishbowl” helmets, through which no facial features could be seen. There were no visible openings on the side of the craft. Ron took a step towards them and the beings did the same towards him, the one on the left taking two steps forward, raised his hand and beckoned to him. Thoroughly frightened, Ron jumped on his bike and sped off. As he drove off at speeds of up to 190k/h, he heard a deep steady growl, and looking up, he saw the object, surrounded by a pink glow, following at between 30-60m altitude. He tried to flag down passing cars without success, and the object overtook him. He now slowed to walking pace. The object stopped, hovered at 45 degrees, then turned deep red, before accelerating away, becoming almost unbearably bright as it did so, and disappeared from view in a matter of seconds.

The creature made a deep whistling sound, which caused the witness to feel prickling sensations in his body. The being then said in perfect Spanish “Won’t you come with me, we need one human being”.

TEXAS CREEK (COLORADO : USA)
College student Kenneth Flack was driving between Salinas and Canon city, when about 1km west of Texas Creek he pulled ahead to overtake a car and camper-trailer, when his engine suddenly failed. Both he and the drivers of the other two vehicles pulled to the side. Flack now noticed in a field to his left 300-400m away a silver grey oval object with a flat base and three stilt like legs. He crossed the road, climbed the fence and walked towards the thing, which he now saw was about the size of a house. As he approached the oval section swivelled round to face him. He now began to walk away from it, but as he did so a bright light hit him, He felt as though was being hit by icicles, put his hands up to ward it off and then passed out. The other people went to his aid and told him that when the beam struck him he had been enveloped in a bluish white glow, which held him for 5 minutes. It then took off, its kegs folding under it and headed off towards Denver. As the light went out Flack fell to the ground. The people in the camper got his address and took him back to the dormitory. He failed to get the addess of these and the person in the other car. He claimed to have received a letter from the woman in the camper saying she had sent a photograph of him surrounded by the light to the Condon Committee, but this was never verified.

CUSSAC (CANTAL : FRANCE)
Francois (13) and Anne-Marie Delpauch were looking after the cattle on their parents farm, when they noticed that the cattle seemed disturbed and were moving to one side of the field, and into the next one. While rounding up the cows, Francois saw what appeared to be four children behind a hedge 40m away in the direction from which the cattle had come. Standing on a pile of stones, he saw then four beings silhouetted against a painfully brilliant large sphere, partly hidden by the hedge. One of the beings was examining the soil and another, holding something which reflected the sun, was waving his arms about. Still thinking they were children, Francois called out to them, whereupon one of the creatures took off vertically and plunged head first into the sphere, the second and third did likewise. The fourth rose up, but then dived down again for the “mirror” before plunging into the sphere, which had already risen to 15m in the air in a spiralling motion. As the object rose up the light grew in intensity and it gave off a soft, sharp whistling sound, mingled with a murmuring which the children could only compare to an unfelt breeze. 

As the object made further circles the light grew ever more intense and the sound cut out. The sphere then moved off at high speed to the north west. A smell of sulphur began to spread over the area, the cattle became agitated and the dog tried to chase the object. The children were too busy with the cattle to see the object disappear. They put the cattle away as quickly as possible, and ran home scared and crying. The sound was heard by Mr Delecher, the village constable, who went to the site and also noted the sulphurous smell. Francois’ eyes were runny and red for sometime afterwards. They described the object as a featureless sphere 2m diameter. Anne-Marie, but not Francois, saw a landing gear and 3-4 thin legs ending in pads 10 cm in diameter, which just vanished as the object took off. The beings ranged between 1-1.2m tall, were of a silky black colour and were either naked or wearing very close fitting clothing. They had unnaturally long and thin arms, their legs were short and thin with webbed feet. Their heads were in proportion, but their crania and chins were extremely pointed, and they had tufts of beard on their side of their faces and under their chins.

About 25 people on Cradle Hill, including Arthur Shuttlewood, saw a conical object land near some woods 1 km away. The object had a revolving rim which was shooting out beams of light. Shuttlewood encountered and communicated with an occupant, but then became afraid, and as he walked away, the object blacked out, and he became aware of an unusually stillness and absence of sound. This silence was broken by a heavy thumping sound, like “the wings of a giant bird”, and he was struck by a huge pressure which passed in a few moments.

OKA (QUEBEC : CANADA)
Yvan Guindon was looking after his two sisters, who were asleep while his parents were out. He heard a pulsating noise, which startled the cats and made the dogs outside howl in a peculiar fashion. . A strange light then caught Yvan’s attention and he made out, about 50m from the house a strange luminous object crossing the treetops left to right, about 5-6m above the ground. There was also a sound like cracking or things falling. The object retreated until it was about 60m away, facing and slightly to the left of the bathroom window. The thing was 10m diameter, 5m high. The top part gave off a steady white light, while from the circumference, red, yellow and orange pulsating lights intermingled. Yvan then saw a very intense luminous ray dart from the bottom of the object. This circled around, as if inspecting the surface of the ground. It then rose to the top the height of the window, dazzling and terrifying Yvan, who jumped from the bench on which he was standing and threw himself to the floor. 

After 2-3 minutes Yvans eyes cleared and he picked himself up again. He saw that the strange object was still there and rising from its top was a luminous cylindrical column, which reminded him of one of the great hydraulic levers in the service station. When this pillar reached a height of 12m it opened up and formed a sort of transparent bell around the object, like a fountain of light, reaching to the ground in a circle of 60m. The pulsating sound increased and at the same time the powerful lights went out and the thing shot up to 300m and disappeared to the NNW in an instant. The observation ended at 2325. A few minutes later, Yvan’s parents arrived home and were shocked by his pale face and bloodshot eyes and thought he had been involved in an accident. The next day, at the spot where the object had hovered, three trees, at least 20cm diameter were found smashed into matchsticks over an area of 3-4m, while neighbouring trees were undamaged.

There was something that looked like a cross on the side of this dome, and on the base of the object was dark grey ridge. After about 30 seconds the thing took off at tremendous speed, horizontally at first and then climbing steeply up. Peter dreamed about the thing the next night.

The object rose at an angle of 30-40 degrees, hovered for a second or so and then sped off to the north east at terrific speed. It made no sound.

They saw two lights in the sky and the third coming rapidly from the direction of the fields, about 3m above the ground. The thing slowed down and hovered above the school clock for about 5 minutes. There was a whooshing sound like the wind. The girls described the object as dome shaped with an orange glow at the top, a brighter red section at the base. Beneath the dome was a white disc with red, green, white and orange lights mingling. As the object came towards them, these lights lit up the ground beneath it. After about 5 minutes the object moved off over the houses, its lights reducing to one faint white light, and it rocked before taking off. On her way home 10 minutes later, Janet thought she saw the object in the sky again and became very frightened.

Mrs Gillian Freakley had been sitting up reading and before retiring, opened the front door to see if she “could see anything unusual”. After 10 minutes she decided to go in again, when, looking up the street, she saw two gray objects moving to and fro. They were facing each other across the car park. These objects were identical solid L shaped masses, resembling children’s bootees. They were moving towards each other and their fronts appeared to merge from time to time. The objects were each less than half the size of a Mini Saloon parked in the street. Around the top of each was an oval light, yellow then orange towards the outside, which flickered on and off in time to the movement of the objects. After about 10 minutes, she called to her husband; the oval light had gone, and she could see the front of a larger object of similar shape, into which one of the two smaller objects was backing. She retreated out of the light of the door and when she returned a few minutes later, with her husband, the objects had gone.

Three young boys, David McCue, Graham Treece and Kenneth Harrington, were playing hide and seek when they saw a ball of fire going towards the north-west and changing direction. The exited children called two neighbours, Mrs Bowen and Mrs Stevenson to the scene. All the witnesses described the object as a dull yellow-orange spinning disc, surmounted by a stationary red dome, the apparent size of a living room. It appeared to come to ground level over some fields about 800m away. Six children ran after it, followed by the two women. The thing was seen to rise over a hedge, and then return to its original position. At this point it was the apparent size of a “grapefruit at arm’s length”, and lit up the trees and ground like a sunset. The two women went to call the police, but David and Kenneth saw first the red light go out, the disc become more yellow and then go out. The boys went to the presumed landing place but could find nothing. Police searches were equally fruitless but they did see a white light rise into the air and blink off. The two women and their dog were apprehensive but the boys felt no fear. David heard a sort of buzzing sound when the object moved over the fence.

Police officer Porfirio Antonio Andrade was on duty in the city hall when he heard a humming sound followed by footsteps coming from the garage. Grabbing his submachine gun, he went to investigate. He was confronted by a small man, 1.2m tall, with a large head, and bulging eyes which gave off a red light, and was wearing a silvery metallic overall. As the officer pointed his gun at the being, a Spanish voice from the roof said “Don’t do him any harm, we are here on a peaceful mission, he won’t do you any harm”. The voice seemed to come from a disc shaped object hovering in the air and wobbling from side to side. The little man then spoke to Andrade, urging him to come to their distant world, which was much larger than earth and contained many advantages. Andrade argued that his duty prevented him from taking such a trip. The being tried to convince him that he could be easily brought back in time, but Andrade wouldn't budge. The little man then lifted one foot followed by the other and flew up to the object hovering above, in which an opening had appeared through which he floated. This door then closed, white smoke and flames issued from four tubes, the humming noise started again and the object left.

As Miss Alicia Rivas Aguillar (23) was turning off her bed lamp, she saw a strange creature outside her bedroom window. Before she closed her eyes and screamed, she noticed that the creature moved as if suspended by a balloon, and gesticulated. Her screams alerted her parents who ran into the room, where they saw the creature soaring over the rooftops, surrounded by a blue-yellow glow. Her brother in law Gumersindo Meire was also roused and, going to his own window, saw the creature launch itself from the window ledge and soar to the east, with its hands and feet pointing backwards. All witnesses described the creature as wearing a silvery metallic uniform, with epaulettes, though no further features could be distinguished. A strong smell of melted iron was noted and an area in the flower bed under the girl’s window was found pressed down.

VILLA CONSTITUCION near ROSARIO (SANTA FE : ARGENTINA)
During the course of a violent storm a brilliant orange light detached itself from the clouds and swiftly descended into a grass paddock, 300m from the house of Mrs Catalina Salvareza de Calamante. This thing was 3m diameter, 2m high, had four antennae like extensions, and was rocking gently to and from about 1m above the ground, emitting blinding flashes of light. It was disc shaped and surrounded by a yellow glow that lit up the rain soaked field. After four hours of observation by the family and farmworkers (10 in all) the object rose slowly and then accelerated at high speed into the clouds. It left behind a strong smell of sulphur and grass was totally burned over an area 3m diameter. Long marks, 5vcm wide, were found on the ground and dark pellets of a substance with a disagreeable smell. On analysis these were shown to contain Carbon, Magnesium, Iron, Nickle, Copper and a few other impurities. The analysis also showed that the soil and the wire netting of the fence were unusually radioactive. The deaths of two cows, found with burst stomachs had also been attributed to the incident. During the incident a transistor radio failed to function, though it did so perfectly afterwards.

LA BALEIA (MINAS GERAIS : BRAZIL)
Fabio J Diniz (16) was walking towards the hospital, where he was hoping to sell window shutters, when his attention was caught by a mushroom shaped object in the middle of the football pitch. Thinking it was some military devise, he walked towards it. Suddenly, with a faint sound, a sort of “transparent screen” dropped from the sides of the cupola to the ground. Behind this screen the cylinder which was the base of the cupola was visible. An opening appeared in this cylinder from the bottom up in a curious manner that the youth could not really describe, and two strange beings emerged only 5m away. They were just over 2m tall, of human form and proportions, robust build, and clad from head to toe in green tight fitting diving suits, leaving only a part of the face visible. Their skin appeared green, they had two large round eyes without the white, which were set far apart and surmounted by thick triangular eyebrows. Their mouths and noses were obscured by a sort of mask, from which went a tube which went right down the chest and heel. then up to the nape of the neck. They had swollen heels and four thick fingers. One of the beings antennae on his head, and when Fabio tried to run away this being told him not to run away but come. It then told him to appear there the next day or they would take his family. 

The other being walked right around the cylinder in long, rapid strides, the feet being lifted very high. The heels seemed to depress the ground. When it had competed its circuit it joined its companion and Fabio saw it was carrying something like a weapon pointed at him. The beings re-entered the cylinder, the spokesman first. The opening closed, the screen raised with a creaking sound like that of a scissors grinder. The object then slowly rose straight up. As he fled, Fabio looked back to see the object moving slowly away at an oblique angle, but when he looked back a second time the object had gone. He described the object as consisting of a central dome, brown, 6m diameter, with a row of “portholes” which revolved when the object took off. From the base of the cupola red, yellow and blue beams flashed intermittently/ The cylinder was shiny black, 3m wide and more than 2m high. The screen gave off no reflections, and on top of the cupola was a stationary triangular protuberance. Fabio ran back, caught the next bus and reported the matter to the police. Some vague marks, and scorched granular material were found at the site. An analysis of the latter showed it consisted of iron, aluminium, magnesium, silicon with traces of phosphorous and 6 other metals.

Carol Luke (14) was in her farmhouse bedroom with her friend Ruth Passini (14) when they observed a bright glowing object, the apparent size of a Volkswagen of that period, above and behind a barn complex about 150-200m away. The object changed colour white-beige-pink-red-orange about 10 times, moving up and down and side to side. After about 30 minutes they heard a noise like the sound of a motor mower coming from the barn area, then two small figures about 1.35m tall emerged from the barn, and stood by the mail box. The beings seemed to be dressed alike, and the one more clearly visible had an oversized head. The two beings may have crossed the road for a short while, then returned with a third. When a car headlights appeared they then ran past the barn. When the car was in the area the lights of the object in the field apparently dimmed, but when car went, the light flared up again. The object then began to move away diagonally, dimming as it did so. At 2200hrs. when Mrs Luke arrived home it was barely visible. Mrs Pinozza who lived opposite claimed to have seen a watermelon shaped object while taking out the wash.

BOYUP BROOK (WESTERN AUSTRALIA : AUSTRALIA)
Mr A R Sprago, the employer of a large labour force, was driving between Kojonup and Boyup Brook, on a paying off expedition. When driving at almost 100kph some 10km from Boyup Brook his vehicle’s electrical system suddenly failed and the car instantly stopped, though be experience of deceleration . The car was now the focus of a brilliant beam of light, 50-80cm diameter, coming from a mushroom shaped object, 10m diameter, hovering at altitude, over the trees, glowing bluish. . The tube came out of the thing’s underside at 45 degrees. Sprago could see straight up this tube, which did not glare. He felt to compelled to look up this tube, and that he was being watched. . He later recalled that while the tube was on him, he could not heard the night sounds or even his own heartbeat. After about 5 minutes the light switched off, the thing seemed to darken and accelerated away in a second or so. The moment this object had left, Sprago found that the car was moving along the road at the same rate as before, again with no sense of acceleration. When Sprago arrived at Boyup her found that his excellent watch was 5 minutes slow, as if it too had been stopped. 
On the same night Grayden Pascoe, farmer on Whistler Road was disturbed by the agitation of his animals and when he went out to investigate he was blinded by a brilliant light, which when he put up his hands to shield his eyes seemed to penetrate his hands like an X-ray. The light then just went out.

As Marshall came within 60m of the object a bright spotlight came on and he saw three small humanoid creatures coming from the machine. They moved very fast and wore green uniforms with some sort of headgear. The creatures disappeared into the night, and the craft took off slowly (about 8km/h). Marshall did not investigate that night for fear of meeting the little men. Next day some trees were found broken.

CHARLESWOOD (MANITOBA : CANADA)
Several residents reported lights in the sky, observed from 1845hrs. onwards. The principal witness, a house salesman and former RCAF technician was returning to his office from one of the houses on the lot, across a field when he observed two small purple lights about 225m away in the field. They were tilted at 45 degrees, 45m apart. The first light was hovering at telephone pole height, the other was at ground level. On walking closer, he observed a third, slightly brighter, light on the ground between the first two. The woman who worked with him then joined him, and as she did so, the lights increased to a diameter of 60-90 cm and began to pulsate, brightening and dimming at 2-3 second intervals out of sequence with each other. The lights began advancing and retreating. The salesman went to get his binoculars and flagged down a car. Two couples and two small children from this car saw four lights, then a fifth which descended through the clouds, lighting them with a reddish glow. The other lights then began to drift 30m northwards. As aircraft passed overhead the three lights at ground level then formed themselves into a perfect triangle, and headed away. When they reached a power line, they changed to a line formation, lighting up the wires as they sped over them, hovered over a TV broadcasting station and moved off into the Northwest. Next day the salesman and a foreman went to the site and found three clusters of small footprints which radiated away in pairs for 60m. It appeared that eight beings were involved leaving footprints 175 mm long and 69 mm wide, with heels pressed down more than the toes. When the foreman bent down over a pile of stones at the centre of this, he felt a sudden headache. The salesman developed reddening of the face and hands, aching in his legs and hot and cold feelings in his thighs. He later suffered from symptoms of dehydration, as did the sales lady. His car took longer than usual to start in the morning. There were a total of 19 witnesses.

HUMBOLT (SASKATCHEWAN : CANADA)
About 10km south west of Humbolt, a farmer and his friend had gone to pick up some bales of hay from another farmer’s field when they observed some lights in the south-west, near a drilling rig. The lights, about 1.5km away, appeared as three lights, one of which resembled a railroad flare These lights were flickering at high frequency, were about 1.2m diameter, with diffuse edges, the outer ones being orange-amber in colour and the centre light brilliant red. . This red light, the shape of an inverted tear drop, moved up and down in a regular fashion. The two drove across the field to within 200m of the lights, where they became blocked from view. As they drove the truck down the road at the estimated position of the lights, the farmer felt that he was driving under something. Looking back after a short period, they saw the lights descend to ground level, the centre lights being at about 1m altitude. The lights followed the truck and then moved off at more than 60kph and then turned around. About 400m from an intersection the lights moved off 50m to the left into a field and went out. The men drove to a high spot on the road, where about 20 minutes later they saw several sparks jump from scattered points on the fields, arcing up from about 50cm to 25-30m. Sparks were also seen on a driveway and the farmer’s companion saw a dark object, without lights, the apparent size of a railway locomotive, moving north on the road.

As they speeded into Lumsden the object moved slowly to the east and disappeared in a wooded ravine about 2.5km away. The two girls in the party were hysterical and both boys very shaken when they reported the matter to Corporal Parsons of the RCMP. Constable Ferguson was dispatched to the area and a t a point 5km south-east of town he saw a red object with white flashing lights at 400m altitude to the south-east. This took off like a jet after 3 minutes. After seeing their girls home, the two boys drove through the wooded ravine where they saw two white lights flashing on and off alternately on the wooded southern slope. Stopping they confirmed that these were bright round, white lights 12m apart, flashing in sequence.

Pat Crosier (or Crozier) (10) was sitting on his front porch with a friend, Donald Chiszar(s) (12-13), when he noticed a bright object approaching from the north, from behind some houses, then stop in mid air 45m away above the White House Tavern. They could see that it was a craft with a dome, out of which came a sort of rod. Pat became afraid and ran inside as the object tilted towards them. Donald saw that it was about 10m in diameter, about 2m thick and was dull silver in colour. It had an oblong portion on the underside, which was circled by red, green and white lights which flashed in sequence. At each of two square windows, separated by a bar, he could see the silhouette of a creature of small size, with wide hips and brown body covered in lumps. The two creatures stood totally motionless, “like robots” and behind them a complicated pattern of lights and knobs could be seen. Below the windows was some strange writing. The boys were about to call for help, when the object tilted back towards the horizontal and disappeared on the spot. Donald looked at his watch and noted that the incident had lasted 2 minutes.

Mr C, the owner of a small transport company in Sussex, was driving his 1966 Ford Transit Minibus on the A32 towards Reading, when 10 minutes after crossing the Hooke Interchange, his vehicle’s electrical system failed. He inspected the battery and leads but could not see what was wrong and returned to the driver’s seat. He caught a glimpse of a dark object motionless over the road as he re-entered the van, but thought nothing of it. After a few minutes he found that he was able to restart the engine and radio, but 400m further along, the electrical system failed again. As he got out once more, he noticed a change of air pressure and an unpleasant pervasive smell like that produced by an arcing electric motor. He inspected the engine again, making sure that the smell did not come from there. Looking around, he saw about 90m away, a dark motionless object at 15-30m above the trees, moonlight glinting on its upper right hand surface. It was 18m wide, 9m thick, with a curved upper part and conical underside, joined by a flange like rim, giving the impression of a very squat ice cream cone made of dull material. After several minutes the object moved away to the right, horizontally and without any sound, disappearing over the trees. He now found that he could re-start the bus. He completed the rest of his journey in an unusually fast time, without stopping, despite the strange route. He found difficulty in co-ordinating his driving. He later noticed a throbbing in his fingertips and that his toothache had stopped. He now found that he could recall his dreams clearly, which he had not been able to do so before.

Paul Quick (21) was pushing his motor cycle 3km to his home in Hampers Lane, through a wooded area when he saw an oval object, which he estimated to 1 ½ times the size of a double decker bus, illuminated with a bright white light. The thing was first seen at about 75m altitude and descended towards him, disappearing behind a clump of trees in 15 seconds. When he reached home, his sister Leone (22) drew the rest of the family’s attention to a large bright coloured sphere floating down on to Chanctonbury Downs about 3km away. The thing now resembled an inverted horse shoe and its colour changed to ruby red, before it separated into three parts, one remaining stationary, the others moving to the left. These parts were green and blue. After about a minute the three portions reunited. 
Paul, his younger sister, Michele (16) and his mother, Suzette, ran to a clearing 500m away to get a better view. They saw the thing now as a sort of horizontal “ice cream cone” about 30m long, the wider end of which was red. After 20 minutes the thing started moving down the hill and they lost sight of it. The thing was also seen by a Mr Slattery from Patcham. They reported the matter to the police.

MISSANCOURT (AISNE : FRANCE)
Two woodcutters were waiting for a third to pick them up car and commenting on the unusual absence of small game to hunt that moonlit night when they saw what they first thought was a car on fire 150 to 200m away. Fearing a car crash they went to investigate but as they got closer they noted the absence of headlights, only the silent light. They then realised that it was not a burning car but something resembling a sort of stalkless mushroom. It was about 7 or 8m long, 2.-2.5m high and dazzling white expect for a sort of doorway in the side, 1m tall, 1.3-1.4m wide emitting a red light like the colour of the rising sun. The thing was hovering, silently, about 20-30cm above the ground, The two men continued to approach but then suddenly they found themselves rooted to the spot, paralysed about 25m from the thing. As the men stood there the thing, or at least its white part, seemed to expand towards them, like smoke or a cloud rolling in. Fearing it would burn his eyes one of the men turned away from it and neither saw nor heard anything for about 7-8 seconds, while his companion stood tooted to the spot, gun in hand and when he came to he was babbling incoherently, but it appears the thing passed within 1.5m to 2m from them.

GREEN LAKE (BRITISH COLUMBIA : CANADA)
Mrs Hills was preparing to go to bed, and was looking through her lodge bedroom window, south over the lake when she noticed an unusual red glow appear over the hill on the other side. She then saw two red lights come over the hill, followed by a third, much larger one, which moved between them, followed by two smaller lights. The large light then had two smaller ones on either side. The formation cleared the hill and crossed the lake on a collision course with the lodge. Mrs Hills was then joined by her husband Ernest and her son. The lights moved towards neighbours, Bert Gammie and family, who confirmed the story, and then shot off 11km to the southwest and then began to dart around the lake, too fast for anyone to follow. The huge red object, the apparent size of an office building, came to rest just above the water that reflected the red glow, which also illuminated clouds in the area. Through binoculars the family saw two horizontal lines of white light on the face of the object. The four small balls suddenly darted off in different directions. After a time a beam of light would come from the large object and then one of the red balls would sail right back into it. The family eventually retired to bed to watch the strange performance in comfort and fell asleep. When they awoke the spectacle had vanished.

FYLINGDALES (YORKSHIRE NORTH RIDING : ENGLAND)
On the moors, 11km from Fylingdales, 7 white and one red-white objects were observed by a teacher, B M Goldrick of Solihull and his family as they were driving along. These were little more than point sources of light. One of the lights appeared to be at ground level, while the others remained at some altitude. The object at ground level appeared to hover over the heather, emitting a “clear and discernible” beam of light skywards. It then turned and faced due south and began to move towards the observers for about 100m, flashing on and off. At a point about 50m away it disappeared.

FANJEUX (AUDE : FRANCE)
Mr and Mrs Pons were driving home from the opera when, rounding a curve, they saw a grey metallic looking object, with two lights that kept changing colour cross the road 70m ahead, reflected in their headlights. Mr Pons thought it was a truck crossing the road from left to right, but his wife disagreed and told him to slow down, . They quickly reached the crossing point where Mr Pons stopped the car and got out but there was nothing to see. The thing had been only a metre or so above the ground and Pons remembered that at the point on the left where the thing was first seen there was a small path. After they had gone on about 1km they saw, low in the sky, a series of luminous squares, like railway carriage windows lit up at night, but Mrs Pons reminded him there was no railway line in that area Unnerved, the couple did not hang around to take in much detail but noted that the ”windows” were illuminated by a white light. These lights were in the direction of Fanjeux village, no more than 500m from the road and came to within 100m of the cross roads, where it seemed to be obscured by some obstacle and was never seen again. Further on, at the crossroads they saw a luminous red ball, leaving a trail, like a shooting star but much bigger and on an opposite trajectory, crossing the sky at speed.

LOWESTOFT (SUFFOLK : ENGLAND)
John Rand from Aldeby was walking home when, as he came up to a disused railway line, he heard a vibrating sound. He thought it was a train on the nearby Beccles line, but when he looked up he saw that it came from a dark object, with a dome on top and a bulge on the bottom, hovering over an apple orchard 20m away. Along the dome were a number of slits of light, which illuminated the nearby trees. The noise increased in pitch as the thing took off. John was very frightened by the experience.

LAC LA MACHE (BRITISH COLUMBIA : CANADA)
Herman Sten, a heavy equipment maintainer, was driving home from Lac La Mache to 100 Mile House, 50km away, on a Friday night. That traffic was unusually scarce that night. Soon after Herman left Lac La Mache, he noticed a flashing light in the sir ahead of him, which he thought was from a helicopter. By the time he reached a small lake at the 178km point the thing was abreast of him and he got a closet look at it. The object resembled two plates pressed together end to end, with a dome on top, surmounted by a steady red light, with another light revolving around the circumference. The thing was about 30m diameter and hovering 60m above the lake. Herman wondered if it was some sort of air-sea rescue mission, but the object then crossed the road, hovered over a small hill on the other side and then began to descend among the trees, its light illuminating them. Herman now became uneasy and drove away. About 5km further on he saw the object climbing in a sweeping curve towards the west. Reaching 100 Mile House, he again saw the flashing light disappearing into the darkness.

In the front of the thing was an opening and a fold up hatchway that led to the ground. When first seen the object was a green-blue colour which changed to silver as they drove closer. The thing took off and went behind some trees but they observed it again when they turned a bend in the road. They were too afraid to stop.

RIRIE (IDAHO : USA)
Billy Begay and Guy Tossie, two Navajo employees of the Earl Hunter Ranch, were driving southwards on Highway 26 towards Ririe when they were blinded by a sudden brilliant light. Although Begay did not apply the brakes, the car stopped. A small domed object, with flashing green and orange lights revolving round its rim, appeared just above the highway in front of them. In the transparent dome they could see two humanoids. After a moment the dome swung open and one of the creatures drifted lightly to the ground. He was a dwarf, 1m tall, with a rough, deep scarred, face, large high ears, round eyes, his mouth a lipless slit, and with no visible nose. To the horror of the youths, the creature approached the car, opened the driver’s door and climbed in as the men sat huddled on the other side. This being drove, or the object somehow drew, the car into a field of stubble. When the car stopped, Tossie, in the passenger seat, managed to dive out of the car and run to a nearby farmhouse for help. When the farmer and his son returned with him they found Begay paralysed with terror. When he recovered, he reported that the being had made a series unintelligible high pitched warbling sounds, as if trying to communicate with him. It was then joined by the second, identical, dwarf. The two beings returned to the object, which then took off with a flame coming from its bottom. Cattle, owned by Mrs Claude Mann stampeded in panic on two occasions, and dogs in the area were terrified. The police confirmed that the youths were sober and suffering from great terror. Investigators were impressed by the consistency of their story. The same night, the driver of a pickup truck was near Ririe by a strange flying devise, from which two beings emerged. He was so overcome by the experience that he feared that he was going out of his mind.

He called out to a companion in the house (presumably Carlos Spini), who looked out. Both men were able to observe the departure of the object towards the west. No sound was heard. Next day they discovered an oval mark 4m by 6m. The grass at the spot, was dry, dehydrated and flattened, more so at the centre than the periphery. It seemed to have been caused by pressure from a convex surface.

FORDINGBRIDGE (HAMPSHIRE : ENGLAND)
Carl B Farlow (25) was driving his Leyland Super Comet diesel lorry on the A 338 between Avon and Sopley when he saw a pale green light about 400m away, above the trees, coming towards the road. Carl kept a watch on the object until he reached the crossroads with a bridge over the River Avon to his right, when he saw the object hovering 3m above the road. As he got within 20m of the thing, which was moving slowly across the road from the right, his radio and lights went out, though his engine continued running. The object appeared to be glowing a brilliant magenta colour, with a whitish area at the bottom. It seemed to be egg shaped, 3-4.5m high, 4.5-6m wide, and 25m long. It appeared to have a circular top and paraploid base. Carl noted a pungent odour like an electrical drill going through wood. An opening appeared in the underside, and a pipe, 7.5cm, diameter with a sphere at the end, emerged. As it did so, a hum, increasing in pitch as the sphere moved further out, was heard. Other pipes were noted on the underside. This main pipe appeared to search the ground and suck up debris, like the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner. As the pipe was withdrawn, the hum became low again, and the opening closed. The thing then moved away to the east, rising slightly first. After travelling about 400m, the object began to climb vertically and disappeared.

As the object moved away Carl became aware of a white Jaguar car that had been stopped on the other side. The driver of this car, a veterinary surgeon, Robert Carslake, said that his car had been stalled by the object. They went to phone the police, noticing that the telephone booth lights and the vet’s torch were both out of action. When police investigated, Carl noted that the vegetation appeared flattened and charred and that the road surface appeared to be melted. Years later he told investigators that his lorry’s electrical system had been destroyed by the event, though he seems to have said the opposite at the time. There were alleged investigations by the Ministry of Defence. Also years later Farlow added the information that spheres with spikes attached came out of the underside of the thing

BURNLEY (LANCASHIRE : ENGLAND)
Wilfred Heaton (37) from Hebden Bridge was driving home from his night shift at a tyre factory in Burnley to his home in Heptonstall along the moorland road, when, going up Wicket Hill, he observed a white sphere come from the north, cross over in front of his car at an elevation of 30 degrees and position itself slightly to the right of the road, and ahead of him. It paced the car, following the road exactly. It now appeared flattened and surrounded by a pulsating halo. At the Long Causeway straight section, about 1.5km long the thing appeared to hover over a distant car. When Heaton flashed his lights to attract this driver’s attention, the object appeared to move, come alongside and then accelerate back to its original position, hovering over a hollow, until he drove close to it, at which it accelerated away. At a branch in the road a second object appeared from behind, passing over the first. The objects stayed in front of him, their distance varying. Towards the end of the journey his car began to lose power; this was later found to be caused by a faulty spark plug. When he reached home Heaton was able to show his wife the objects low in the south-east. After 10 minutes they ascended vertically into the sky.

LAKE EISINORE (CALIFORNIA : USA)
A business executive was driving through a remote region when his car engine, lights and radio failed and he felt a strange pressure from above pressing down on his neck and shoulders. . Through a break in the fog he saw a red-orange, hazy, disc shaped object that passed over him and hovered over the highway ahead, lighting up the area. The thing wobbled as it hovered and moved and had rotating lights. The witness was unable to estimate the diameter of this object, though he gave estimates between 9 and 15m and estimated its altitude as from 15-50m. After about 90 seconds the object took off into the fog ahead and the electrical equipment began functioning again. The FM band of the radio however was only giving a hum on all channels. Investigators found that this was due to damage to stereo tapes and pitting of the car’s paint. However no evidence that the car had been subjected to an electro-magnetic field was forthcoming. The witness became religious and was afraid to visit the site alone, almost passing out when he did so with investigators. Both a waitress and milkman to whom he had talked, both confirmed his fright. His watch was found stopped at 0345hrs. but this could not be tied definitely to the incident.

As Phillip opened the car door they noticed an extremely unpleasant odour like that of a stink bomb. When Phillip re-entered the car he was alarmed to see a kind of face 25 cm long, 20 cm wide close to the window. It was blank, white, with no features at all and may have been faintly luminous. There was also a sort of arm which reached up to the car roof and a dark bell shaped body which was illuminated by their rear lights,. it having moved towards the rear as Phillip fumbled to start the engine. It appeared to be the same size as their Triumph Vitesse car (1.35m). When they had driven from the scene the foul smell vanished. Angela would not agree to return to the site. Phillip’s parents confirmed his agitated state when he arrived home.

They stopped to get a better look as it passed over and were astonished to see that the object had stopped also. They saw it was an enormous helmet shaped object, shining with a bright white light with two dark marks of the same shape, which looked like openings, quite clear in the middle of the white light. The siblings, alarmed, continued on their journey, only to find that the object was following them. It then began to rise, grew brighter, the dark markings disappearing, and continued pacing the car over the trees at a speed of 110kph. A strange noised seemed to come from the car’s engine, affecting the performance, before the object disappeared from site.

The object appeared to be an inverted saucer, metallic grey in colour, 3.5-6m diameter, about 1.8m high, hovering a few centimetres above the ground. There were two round and two square portholes on the side facing him. The hum was now so strong that he could feel its vibrations. When Poole yelled at the object, to his astonishment, the words were echoed back to him. As Poole moved to get out of his vehicle the object took off vertically. The incident had lasted about 10 seconds. There were no traces on the ground. At about this time Mrs Poole noticed interference on her TV. Poole’s employer spoke highly of him.

He was taken up in a beam of orange light to a “computer room” with a console and blinking lights, where he was undressed by naked beings with rough brown crocodile like skin, and with holes for noses and ears and slit like mouths. They had an unusual number of fingers and toes and voices “like a kazoo”. When he arrived home one of his shoes was missing.

While driving home from Winter Ranch, Bruce Macpherson ran out of fuel when about 11km west of Gull Lake. He pushed his car into a ditch at the side of the road. Just then he heard a strange whistling sound and turned around to see a ball of fire coming at him from the east. The thing, which was as bright as the sun, hovered over his car at the height of a microwave tower for about 5 minutes. It then took off in the direction from which it had come at incredible speed. After sitting for 15 minutes, Bruce picked up the courage to walk to a nearby farm, where he saw the object returning as a bright light in the sky, 6km away, casting a reflection on the ground. The off key whistle was heard again and the object came directly over the car, before returning to hover in the east, where he observed it for about an hour.

RIO DE JANEIRO (RIO DE JANEIRO : BRAZIL)
Radio technician Ugo Battaglia (39) and his helper Carlos A do Nacsimento (14) were working in an 8th floor apartment in the Rua Gomez Carneiro. Carlos was standing by the window when he heard a sound so high pitched that it made the window glass vibrate. Looking out, he saw a brilliant metallic disc apparently landing among the trees just beyond the skyline. The object struck a tree, scattering its leaves and causing it to explode. The object hovered close to the ground and Carlos called Ugo over to see three white clad men climb out of the object, which had a spinning cupola with slat like openings above its main body, with a red light on either side of the bottom. The beings walked together, their arms hung down beside them, and wore white or yellow clothing. After 5 minutes they re-entered the machine, Ugo believed this was some sort of helicopter and calmed the boy’s fear. After finishing their job they walked back to their workshop at 1455hrs. and saw the object still on the hill. A few moments later it was gone. Next day they went to the site with a colleague. There they found the grass trampled down, the damaged tree burned and charred and apparently wrenched apart. They were astounded to discover that such was the height of the grass the men must have been floating above it to be visible. A third person reported to the police after fainting at the sight of the object and its crew. Carlos suffered a headache for the rest of the day.

A highway patrol officer on duty at Km 124 on the Anhanguera Highway saw what looked like an unlit aircraft descending. He ran to assist what he feared was an aircraft crash but saw instead that this was an immense object, the size of a 15hrs. story building, hovering at 50m altitude. It was aluminium looking with what looked like rivets, and hatches on its underside, and appeared to be spinning. The officer was about to return to his post when the ibject emitted blindingly bright lights and an intense hum that gave him a headache. He was unable to restart his patrol car and he then realised that the lights in the police hut and a nearby petrol station were also out. The object then took off and was lost to sight in the sky, at which the lights came back on and he could start his car. In garage owners home, the TV and fluorescent lights all burned out. He also discovered that the engine of a passing truck had also cut out.

ASHLAND (NEBRASKA : USA)
City Patrolman Herbert T Schirmer (22) was making his rounds on Highway 6, 800m south of Ashland. As he passed a ridge near the Hw 63 intersection, he saw an object with lights which he thought was a stalled truck. He then saw it was an aluminium coloured object, about 7m long hovering about 2m above the ground. As he drove to within 12m of the object, his engine died. He then observed the object take off in a shimmering fashion, with a twanging sound which became a beep as the object rose to 15hrs.m. As a brilliant red-orange light shone from its base, the object took off, showing a glowing square protrusion on its base. Schirmer’s flashlight refused to function. The car then started normally. An abnormally high radiation count was noted at the site. There was an apparent time lapse and under hypnotic regression by Dr Leo Sprinkle for the Condon Committee, he recalled that a brilliant white light had shone on the car from the object and that a blurred white figure had approached and communicated with him, the alleged communication concerned the origin and propulsion of “ space ships from another galaxy”. The psychological examination also revealed that Schirmer suffered from a headache after the incident and subsequent psychological disturbances. These latter persisted after the Sprinkle regression, and a second regression was undertaken by a hypnotist under the aegis of a popular ufo writer. This was said to reveal an abduction by beings 1.35-1.5m tall wearing close fitting, grey uniforms, with a winged serpent chest emblem and gloves and boots. They had long, thin, grey white faces, with flat noses, slit mouths and slanted eyes. They showed him the workings of the ship and said they were planning the peaceful invasion of the earth. The only physical trace of the incident was a weal below Schirmer’s ear.

Beautician Rita Malley (25) was driving home to Ithaca from North Lansing with her 5 year old son in the back seat along the Auburn-Ithaca road. She was exceeding the speed limit in order to get home to cook her husband’s dinner, despite the poor weather, light snow and strong winds severely buffeting her 1962 Ford convertible, though there was little traffic on the road. Between North and South Lansing, Rita noticed a red glow to het rear, which glow was getting brighter. She thought it was a police car and was thinking of ways to explain her speeding, but then an object came into sight over the telephone pole to her left. . The thing was circular, with a dome on top, brilliant red and green lights underneath and was about 16-18m diameter and it tilted at one point. Its light was too strong for her to look at for any length of time. She looked back to see her little boy sitting bolt upright, his eyes staring, and mute when she spoke to him. As the object hovered at a height two to three times the height of the telephone poles a white light came down from the object and seemed to take control of her car, which stopped when the light stopped moving. Her car was then moved over on to the side of the road and into a field, a distance of about 5m.

As the object hovered at 35m altitude, 55m away Rita’s car lights began to dim down. She tried various times to get control of the car, without success. The object then began to emit a humming sound like a swarm of bees and then a sort of chorus of broken voices came from the thing, informing her that the brother of a woman she had been to beauty school with had been killed in a traffic accident, and that her son would not remember this period of time stop. After six or seven minutes the car returned to the road, the steering wheel moving as if on its own accord. Though the car lights came back on, Rita felt she was still under the influence of the light to her left. The white light then went out, leaving blending red and green lights. Traffic then appeared coming from the opposite direction and the object shot away, Rita now being back in control of her car. The little boy remembered nothing of these incidents. When Rita arrived home she was late, had a headache and became hysterical. The next day her sister mentioned that the man referred to by the voices, had indeed killed as described.

She saw an orange-yellow light and when she went outside she saw it crossing the road to the north. It cleared the trees and rose rapidly, at an angle, to the north. When her husband arrived in response to her cries the thing was visible only as a bright blinking star. Maryellen suffered headaches, seemed to get electric shocks when she touched things, developed sore eyes, reddening of the exposed parts of her skin, earache and nosebleeds.

It turned, revealing its underside of square light panels. At first only three were lit, but then the whole underside lit up, as if made of hundreds of panels. The thing turned level again and its domed top now lit up and approached them down the road. They got back into their truck and drove off, as the object banked and headed off towards Elmira, New York.

ANDALGALA (CATAMARCA : ARGENTINA)
While out driving with his wife in a place called Subida de la Chilca, Mr Clerici saw a violet light almost touching the ground ahead of his car. The thing turned to green for a few moments on occasion. Clerici drove the car onto the verge and turned off its engine and lights. Then a spherical luminous object about 2m diameter rose up and vanished towards the mountains.

WEDNESBURY (STAFFORDSHIRE : ENGLAND)
A 23 year old man was walking down Woden Road after seeing his girlfriend home when, just past Wednesbury Youth Centre a bright red object swooped down at fantastic speed from ahead of him. The thing appeared to be composed of hundreds of tiny, pill sized, green lights, flashing in unison like a beacon. A bright red glow appeared from the top of the thing and the man had the uncanny sense of being stared at. A few seconds later the object floated over his head and appeared to land in a field to his left. There was a faint burring sound. The man fled home in terror.
