Jul., 1868 Copiago (Chile). A strange "aerial construction"
bearing lights and making engine noises flew low
over this town. Local people also described it as a
giant bird covered with large scales producing a me-
tallic noise. Although not an actual landing, this is
the first instance of close observation of an unknown
object at low altitude in the nineteenth century.
(Fort 638; Anatomy 11)
Dec. 07, 1872 Banbury (Great Britain). At King's Sutton an object
0100 hours resembling a haystack flew on an irregular course.
Sometimes high, sometimes very low it was accom-
panied by fire and dense smoke. It produced the same
effect as a tornado, felling trees and walls. It sud-
denly vanished. (Fort 189)
1880 Aldershot (Great Britain). A strange being dressed in
tight-fitting clothes and shining helmet soared over
the heads of two sentries, who fired without result.
The apparition stunned them with something de-
scribed as "blue fire." (FSR 61, 3; Magonia)
May. 15, 1879 Persian Gulf. Two very large "wheels" were seen
2140 spinning in the air and slowly coming to the surface
of the sea. Estimated diameter: 40 m. Distance be-
tween the objects: 150 m. Speed: 80 km/h/ Duration:
35 min. Witnesses aboard the ship "Vultur" (Round
up 17; Anatomy 12)
1880 Eastern Venezuela. A 14-year-old boy saw a luminous
ball descending from the sky and hovering near him.
He felt somehow "drawn" to it, but succeeded in
backing away in spite of his terror. (Lor. III 2O6)
Mar. 26, 1880 Lamy (New Mexico). Four men walking near Galis-
evening teo Junction were surprised as they heard voices com-
ing from a "strange balloon," which flew over them.
It was shaped like a fish and seemed to be guided by
a large fanlike device. There were eight to ten figures
aboard. Their language was not understood. The ob-
ject flew low over Galisteo Junction and rose rapidly
toward the east. (FSR 65, 3)
Jun. 11, 1881 Between Melbourne and Sydney at sea (Australia).
0400 The two sons of the Prince of Wales, one of them
the future king of England, were cruising aboard "La
Bacchante" when an object resembling a fully lighted
ship was seen ("a phantom vessel all aglow"). (Fort
637; Anatomy 12)
Nov. 02, 1885 Scutari (Turkey). A luminous object circled the har-
dawn bor. Altitude: 5-6 m. Illuminated the whole town.
Duration: 1 1/2 min, as a bluish-green flame. Then
plunged into the sea. Made several circles above the
ferry-boat pier. (LDLN 48; Anatomy 14)
Nov. 12, 1887 Cape Race (Atlantic Ocean). A huge sphere of fire
2400 was observed rising out of the ocean by witnesses
aboard the "Siberian." It rose to an altitude of 16 m,
flew against the wind, and came close to the ship,
then "dashed oft" toward the southeast. Duration:
5 min. (LDLN 48; Anatomy 14)
1896 Arolla, near Zermatt (Swiss Alps). Author Aleister
Crowley was walking in the mountains when he sud-
denly saw two little men. He made a gesture to them,
but they did not seem to pay attention and disap-
peared among the rocks. (Magic Without Tears, by
A. Crowley)
Mar. 26, 1897 Sioux City (Iowa). Approximate date. Robert Hib-
night bard was caught by an anchor dropped from an un-
known flying machine 22 km north of the town. He
was dragged over 10 m and fell as his clothes were
torn. (FSR 66, 4)
Mar. 28, 1897 Omaha (Nebraska). The majority of the population
2230 observed an object arriving from the southeast. It
looked like a huge light, flew northwestward slowly,
came to low altitude. A crowd gathered at a street
corner to watch it. (185)
Apr. 01, 1897 Everest (Kansas). The whole town saw an object fly
2100 under the cloud ceiling. It came down slowly, then
flew away very fast to the southeast. When directly
over the town it swept the ground with its powerful
light. It was seen to rise up at fantastic speed until
barely discernible, then to come down again and
sweep low over the witnesses. At one point it re-
mained stationary for 5 min at the edge of a low
cloud, which it illuminated. All could clearly see the
silhouette of the craft. (FSR 66, 4)
Apr. 12, 1897 Nilwood (Illinois). On the property of Z. Thacker, 19
1430 km north of Carlinville, an unknown object landed.
Before the three witnesses could reach it, the craft,
which was shaped like a cigar with a dome, rose slowly
and left majestically toward the north. Witnesses:
Edward Teeples, William Street and Franklin Met-
calf. (186; Anatomy 12)
Apr. 12, 1897 Girard, near Green Ridge (Illinois). A large crowd of
1800 miners saw an unknown object land 3 km north of
Green Ridge and 4 km south of Girard. The night
operator of the Chicago-and-Alton Railroad, Paul Mc-
Cramer, stated that he came sufficiently close to the
craft to see a man emerge from it to repair the ma-
chinery. Traces were found over a large area. The
object itself was elongated like a ship with a roof and
a double canopy. It left toward the north. (186,187)
Apr. 14, 1897 Gas City (Indiana). An object landed 2 km south of
1500 Gas City on the property of John Roush, terrifying
the farmers and causing the horses and cattle to
stampede. Six occupants of the ship came out and
seemed to make some repairs. Before the crowd could
approach the object, it rose rapidly and flew toward
the east. (188)
Apr. 14, 1897 Cleveland (Ohio). Joseph Singler, captain of the
"Sea Wing," was fishing with S. H. Davis, of Detroit,
when they saw on the lake what they thought was a
ship, about 13 m long, with a canopy. A man, about
25 years old, wearing a hunting jacket and a cap, was
fishing from the deck of the object. Near him were a
woman and a 10-year old child. When the "Sea
Wing" came close to the craft, a large, colored bal-
loon rose from the object, which flew up with it to an
altitude of about 150 m and circled "like a hawk"
before flying away. (189)
Apr. 15, 1897 Linn Grove (Iowa). A large object was seen to fly
morning slowly toward the north. It seemed ready to land and
five men (F. G. Ellis, James Evans, David Evans, Joe
Croaskey, Benjamin Buland) drove toward it. About
7 km north of Linn Grove, they found the craft on
the ground, came within 700 m of it but it "spread
its four giant wings and rose towards the North." Two
strange figures aboard the craft made efforts to con-
ceal themselves. Witnesses were surprised at the
length of their hair. Most residents of Linn Grove
saw the craft in flight. (190)
Apr. 15, 1897 Howard-Artesian (South Dakota). A flying object
nightfall coming closer and closer to the ground followed a
train, as reported by the engineer, Joe Wright (FSR
Apr. 15, 1897 Perry Springs (Missouri). A passenger train on the
2100 Wabash line, going toward Quincy, was followed by
a low-flying object for 15 min between Perry Springs
and Hersman. All the passengers saw the craft, which
had a red and white light. After Hersman it flew ahead
of the train and disappeared rapidly, although the
train was then running at 65 km/h. (190)
Apr. 15, 1897 Springfield (Illinois). Two farm workers, Adolph
Winkle and John Hulle, saw a strange craft in a field.
They had a discussion with its occupants, a woman
and two men, and were told the ship-had flown from
Quincy to Springfield in 30 min and that the crew.
was making electrical repairs. (FSR 65,1)
Apr. 16, 1897 Downs Township (Illinois). Approximate date. While
working in his field, Haney Savidge saw an aerial
craft land near him. Six people emerged from it and
spoke to him for a few minutes before leaving again.
Apr. 17, 1897 Williamston (Michigan). At least a dozen farmers
morning saw an object maneuver in the sky for an hour before
it landed. A strange man near 3 m tall, almost naked
and suffering from the heat, was the pilot of the
craft. "His talk, while musical, seemed to be a repeti-
tion of bellowings." One farmer went near him and
received a blow that broke his hip. (196)
Apr. 19, 1897 Leroy (Kansas). Alexander Hamilton was awakened
2230 by a noise among the cattle and went out with his
son and his tenant. They saw an elongated cigar-
shaped object, about 100 m long with a transparent
cabin underneath showing narrow reddish bands,
hovering 10 m above ground. They approached within
50 m of it. It was illuminated and equipped with a
searchlight. Inside it were "six of the strangest be-
ings" the witness had seen, also described as "hid-
eous." They spoke a language no witness could
understand. A cow was dragged away by the object
with the help of a strong red cable; it was found
butchered in a field the next day. (Anatomy 16; Ma-
Apr. 20, 1897 Homan (Arkansas). Capt. James Hooton was hunt-
1800 ing in the vicinity of Homan when he heard the noise
of a steam engine and found an object in a clearing.
It looked like a cylinder with pointed ends, lateral
wheels, and horizontal blade over it. Hooton spoke
with a man who wore dark glasses and walked behind
the craft. There were three or four occupants. The
witness was told this was indeed "The Airship" and
that it used compressed air for propulsion. Hooton
saw the wheels spin as the craft rose and flew away.
(FSR 66, 4; Magonia)
Apr. 22, 1897 Rockland (Texas). John M. Barclay was intrigued
when his dog barked furiously and a high-pitched
noise was heard. He went out, saw a flying object
circling 5 m above ground. Elongated with protru-
sions and blinding lights, it went dark when it landed.
Barclay was met by a man who told him his purpose
was peaceful and requested some common hardware
items to repair the craft. He paid with a ten-dollar bill
and took off "like a bullet out of a gun." (192;
Apr. 22, 1897 Josserand (Texas). Frank Nichols, who lived 3 km
2400 east of Josserand and was one of its most respected
citizens, was awakened by a machine noise. Looking
outside, he saw a heavy, lighted object land in his
wheat field. He walked toward it, was stopped by two
men who asked permission to draw water from his
well. He then had a discussion with a half-dozen men,
the crew of the strange machine. He was told how it
worked but could not follow the explanation. (193;
Apr. 23, 1897 McKinney Bayou (Arkansas). Judge Lawrence A.
Byrne of Texarkana, Arkansas, was surveying a tract
of land when he saw a peculiar object anchored on
the ground. "It was manned by three men who spoke
a foreign language, but judging from their looks one
would take them to be Japs." (Farish, in Allende
Letters (Award Special, 1968) )
Apr. 25, 1897 Merkel (Texas). People returning from church ob-
evening served a heavy object being dragged along the ground
by a rope attached to a flying craft. The rope got
caught in a railroad track. The craft was too high for
its structure to be visible but protrusions and a light
could be distinguished. After about 10 min a man
came down along the rope cut the end free, and went
back aboard the craft, which flew away toward the
northeast. The man was small and dressed in a light-
blue uniform. (194; Magonia)
Apr. 26, 1897 Aquila-Hillsboro (Texas). Approximate date. A law-
yer was surprised to see a lighted object fly over. His
horse was scared and nearly toppled the carriage.
When the main light was turned off, a number of
smaller lights became visible on the underside of the
dark object, which supported an elongated canopy.
It went down toward a hill to the south, 5 km from
Aquila. When the witness was on his way back one
hour later he saw the object rising. It reached the
altitude of the cloud ceiling and flew to the northeast
at a fantastic speed with periodic flashes of light. (195)
May. 06, 1897 Hot Springs (Arkansas). Two policemen, Sumpter
and McLenore, were riding northwest of Hot Springs
when they saw a bright light in the sky. About 7 km
farther they saw the light again coming down to the
ground. One km farther the horses refused to walk.
Two men were seen carrying lights. The lawmen took
their rifles, called the strangers, and were told that
they crossed the country with a flying craft. The sil-
houette of the machine, about 2O m long, could be
seen in the clearing. There was a woman with an um-
brella nearby. It was raining, and the younger of the
men was filling a large container with water. The elder
man had a beard and suggested that the policemen
fly with them "to a place where it does not rain." The
same witness went back through the same spot 40
min later and found nothing. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia)
Oct. 28, 1902 Gulf of Guinea. Three persons aboard the "Fort Salis-
0305 bury," including Second Officer A. H. Raymer, saw a
huge, dark object bearing lights in the sea ahead. It
was observed sinking slowly. Estimated length: 200
m. (Fort 641; Anatomy 20)
1904 Rolling Prairie (Indiana). Tom Darby, with his
brother and mother, saw two whitish-blue objects
about 400 m away, from a point situated 3 km north
of Rolling Prairie. The objects hovered 2 or 3 m above
ground, flew toward a barn, came closer to each other,
and were hidden from view by a hill. (Hartle 164)
1908 Coast of Delaware. The English ship "Mohican,"
piloted by Capt. Urghart, was going to Philadelphia
when it was surrounded by a thick, luminous cloud
which "magnetized" everything on board. The com-
pass was observed to swing wildly. When seamen tried
to move some chains on the bridge, they found that
they were glued to the metal floor. Suddenly the cloud
rose and was seen above the sea for some time. (197)
Jun. 30, 1908 Podkamennaia Toungouska (USSR). Unexplained
explosion in the taiga, equivalent to a thermonuclear
blast, sometimes interpreted as the crash of an inter-
stellar vehicle. (Anatomy 18; Challenge 99)
May. 18, 1909 Caerphilly (Wales). Mr. Lethbridge was walking
2300 along a road near the mountains when he saw on the
grass a large tubelike machine. Aboard were two men
wearing furs and talking excitedly in a language the
witness could not understand. The grass was found
depressed at the site after the object had flown off.
(198; Anatomy 21)
Jun. 16, 1909 Donghoi (Annam). An elongated object following a
0410 west to east trajectory flew over the town. It gave off
a strong light and was seen by two fishermen to
plunge into the sea 6 km away from the coast, after a
steady flight of about 9 min. (Anatomy 21)
Jan. 1910 Invercargill (New Zealand). Several witnesses -
2300 among them the vicar, the Mayor, and a policeman
-saw a cigar-shaped object hovering at 30 m alti-
tude. A man appeared at a lateral door and was heard
shouting some words in an unknown language. The
opening closed, and the object accelerated and was
lost to sight. (Stuart 24)
Jun., 1914 Hamburg (Germany). Gustav Herwagen opened the
0400 door of his house and saw in a field a shining cigar-
shaped object with illuminated windows. Near it were
four or five dwarfs 1.20 m tall, clad in light clothing.
He approached them, but they went aboard the ob-
ject as soon as they appeared to be aware of his pres-
ence. A door closed, and the craft took off silently,
climbing vertically. (Nachrichten April, 62)
Aug., 1914 Georgian Bay (Canada). William J. Kiehl and seven
other persons saw a spherical craft on the surface of
the water. On its deck were two small men wearing
green-purple clothes. They seemed to be busy with a
hose, plunging it into the water. On the opposite side
were three men dressed in light brown, wearing square
masks down to their shoulders. Seeing the witnesses,
they reentered the craft except for one dwarf, wearing
shoes with a curved, pointed tip, who remained out-
side while the craft rose 3 m above the water and shot
upward, leaving a short trail. (199)
Aug. 21, 1915 Gallipoli (Turkey). During severe fighting in the
Dardanelles a peculiar cloud engulfed a British regi-
ment which was never seen again. This was observed
by 22 men of the First Field Company, NZ Army
Corps and stated in an affidavit. (Spaceview 45;
LDLN 82; Magonia)
Oct., 1917 Youngstown (Pennsylvania). John Boback, 17, was
walking along the railroad tracks between Youngs-
town and Mt. Braddock when he saw a saucer-shaped
object with a platform and rows of lights, sitting in a
field 30 m to his left. He watched the object for 1-2
min until it took off with a high-pitched sound, rising
gradually like a slow plane. Its size was that of an
average car. The top of the object was a dome with
elongated windows through which figures could be
seen. (Hartle 157)
1921 Marseilles (France). Undocumented report of an
"abduction" by two beings. (Quincy)

Feb. 22, 1922 Hubbell (Nebraska). William C. Lamb was follow-
0500 ing strange tracks when he heard a high-pitched sound
and saw a circular object intercepting starlight. It
became brilliantly lighted and landed in a hollow.
Soon afterword, a creature over 2.4 m tall was seen
flying from the direction where the object had landed.
It left tracks in the snow, which Lamb followed with-
out results. (Anatomy 22)
Sep. 09, 1922 Barmouth (Wales). John Morris and William James
saw an object fall into the ocean so slowly that it was
thought to be a plane. A boat was sent out, but
nothing was found. (Fort 639)
Jun. 12, 1929 Fermeneuve (Canada). Levis Brosseau, 2O was re-
2300 turning home when he saw a dark object with a yellow
light and his horse became very nervous. Within 6 m
of the object four or five dwarfish figures were running
back and forth. He heard their pointed, childlike
voices, then saw the dark object take off with a ma-
chinelike sound and a rush of air. Estimated size of
object: 15 m diameter, 5 m high. (GEPA Dec., 68)
Jul., 1929 Robsart (Canada). Five persons among them Einar
Rostivold, saw a huge ball of light giving off fiery
colors, 25 km from Robsart. It landed slowly, van-
ished gradually after illuminating the whole country-
side for 30 min. (Fate Jan., 58)
Summer, 1933 Chrysville (Pennsylvania). A man observed a faint
Morning violet light in a field between this town and Morres-
town. Walking to it, he found an ovoid object 3 m in
diameter and 2 m thick with a circular opening similar
to a vault door. Pushing it, he found the room full of
violet light and observed many instruments, no oc-
cupant. Smell of ammonia. (APRO Jul., 64)
Fall, 1938 (or following year) Juminda (Estonian coast). Two
persons saw a strange "frog-man" 1 m tall with a
round head, no neck, and a hump in front of the body.
The mouth was a large, straight slit, the eyes were like
smaller slits. The skin was brown-green, compared to
pegamoid, hands normal. The creature walked in a
peculiar "but elegant" fashion, the head waving up
and down while the legs moved "carefully." When
pursued, the creature accelerated very fast, with feet
"fluttering." About 100 m away it vanished com-
pletely'. (Personal)
Sep., 1943 Oncativo (Argentina). Navarro Ocampo, driving be-
0400 tween Rosario and Cordoba, saw a large, saucer-shaped
object on the ground 500 m to the left of the road. It
glowed with a bluish-green light, made a whistling
sound, rose to 100 m altitude, then left at fantastic
speed. A strange metal block is said to have been
found at the spot. (GEPA Dec., 68)
End Aug., 1944
Mattoon (Illinois). A mysterious man appeared at
windows, as if in search of someone. He stunned wit-
nesses by pointing at them a device that "made con-
sciousness dissolve" and left a strange cloying smell
behind (FSR 61, 3; Magonia)
1945 Habbebishopsheim (Germany). An American soldier
saw a disk-shaped object come down rapidly, oscillate,
and land. The site could not be found in the dark.
The event took place 35 km northwest of the town.
Mar., 1945 Belfast (Maine). A man out hunting observed an
elongated object flying very slowly, tilted toward the
earth. It crashed into some trees at the end of a clear-
ing. The enormous craft seemed undamaged as it
rested briefly on the ground, then lifted again with a
humming sound, started to spin, released a shower
of fine silvery threads, and rose straight up, disap-
pearing in seconds. (FS May., 59)
Mar., 1945 Aleutian Islands. Aboard the US attack transport
"Delarof," 14 sailors saw a dark sphere rise out of the
ocean, follow a curved trajectory, and fly away after
circling their ship. (Evidence 30)
Jun. 10, 1947 Douglas (Arizona). Coral Lorenzen saw a light rise
2300 from the ground in Mexican territory. It took a defin-
ite spherical shape and vanished in less than ten sec-
onds among the stars. (Lor. I 4)
Jun. 21, 1947 Maury Island, near Tacoma (Washington). Harold
A. Dahl and others allegedly saw six tire-shaped ob-
jects, 30 m in diameter, metallic with dark openings,
over Puget Sound. One of the objects exploded,
showering the witnesses with metal. Officially re-
garded as hoax. (Ruppelt)
Jun. 21, 1947 Spokane (Washington). Eight disk-shaped objects
1150 the size of a house, were seen flying at 1000 km/h. A
civilian woman stated that the objects fell with a dead-
leaf motion and landed before ten witnesses on the
shore of the Saint Joe River, in Idaho. (Atic)
Jun. 17, 1947 Bisbee (Arizona). John A. Petsche, electrical worker
1030 and another witness independently saw a disk-shaped
object, which seemed to land near Tintown. (Lor. I 6)
Jun. 30, 1947 Grand Canyon, near Williams Field (Arizona). A
0910 Navy lieutenant was flying at 9000 m toward the
south when he saw two circular objects diving at "un-
conceivable" speed. They were gray, about 3 m in
diameter, and appeared to land 40 km south of the
Grand Canyon. (Atic)
Jul. 08, 1947 Muroc Air Field (California). An Air Force major
1200 observed a metallic object, reflecting sunlight oscil-
late, go down to ground level, and rise again. Simul-
taneously it was observed by a captain in Rodgers Dry
Lake. (Atic)
Jul. 23, 1947 Bauru, near Pitanga (Brazil). A group of survey
workers ran away as they heard a hissing noise and
saw a disk land 50 m away. Jose C. Higgins saw two
figures through, a window. Later three beings in shiny
clothes and translucent suits, with oversized bald
heads, huge round eyes, no eyelashes or eyebrows, and
a metal box on their back, emerged from the craft.
They were over 2 m. tall. They drew the solar system
and pointed to Uranus as if to suggest that was their
point of origin. (Round-up 163; FSR 61, 6)
Aug. 13, 1947 Twin Falls, Smoke River Canyon (Idaho). Two boys
1300 and their father saw a sky-blue object 100 m away and
25 m above ground. Treetops under it were spinning
wildly, although the object itself did not spin. It made
a swishing sound. Shape: inverted plate, 7 m diameter
and 3.5 m thick. There was a red flame on one side of
the top. (Atic)
Aug. 14, 1947 Raveo (Italy). R. L. Johannis saw a disk on the ground
0900 and two dwarfs less than 1 m tall, wearing dark blue
coveralls with red collars and belts. They had over-
sized heads, greenish faces, huge, salient dark eyes
without eyelashes or eyebrows, but surrounded by a
ringlike muscle. They wore something similar to crash
helmets. The center of their belts projected a "vapor,"
and the witness suffocated, feeling a strong electrical
discharge. The creature had greenish hands with
eight talonlike fingers. (Humanoids 2; Magonia; FRS
67, 1)
1948 Swastika (Canada). Mr. Galbraith twice saw an ob-
ject land. The first time, it was a disk-shaped craft
with a humanoid figure-the second time, cigar
shape with three figures. (Quincy)
Jul. 29, 1948 Indianapolis (Indiana). An object swept over a road
at 10 m altitude. (Atic)
Aug. 11, 1948 Hamel (Minnesota). Two boys were playing outside
1200 when a round dull gray object 70 cm in diameter, 30
cm thick, landed near them like a balloon with a
metallic noise. It spun, went up, hovered, maneuvered
to avoid Phone lines and trees, and flew away to
the northeast. An FBI man from St. Paul found an
area 70 cm in diameter where the ground showed signs
of extreme pressure. (Atic)
Aug. 29, 1948 Maplewood (Ohio). A farmer observed a silvery
0503 sphere of large dimension rise from a wooded area and
hover above his farm, dropping a silvery substance
that disintegrated before touching the ground. (Atic)
Feb., 1949 Pucusana (Peru). C. A. V. an oil company employee,
1630 30, was driving to Lima when he saw a shiny disk at
ground level. He walked toward it for 10 min. Three
figures came out as he was 20 m away. They looked
like mummies, had joined legs and one large foot.
They "slid" along the ground. They were covered
with a strange "towely" skin, asked the witness where
they were, had a lengthy discussion with him, and
took him for a trip in their craft. (Lor. III 122)
Feb. 17, 1949 France (exact location unknown). Alain Berard saw
night a large, bright object land near his farm with a green
lightning flash. It became dark. As he approached the
craft, the witness saw three figures with stocky short
legs, apparently without heads. Frightened, he fired
at them three times. A moment later the object took
off vertically. (Oltre il Cielo, Vol. I)
Aug. 19, 1949 Death Valley (California). Two prospectors are said
to have observed a disk-shaped object land. Two
dwarfs emerged but were lost in the sand dunes when
pursued. The object disappeared. (Humanoids 52)
Fall, 1949 Tulsa (Oklahoma). Don Bushnell, plant superin-
tendent with Southwestern Porcelain Steel Corp., saw
an object fall in front of his car as his radio was
blocked. He applied the brakes; object vanished.
Jan. 29, 1950 South Table Mountain (Colorado). Mr. Quintana
of Denver saw a silvery-green ovoid object hovering
about 15 m above a slope and landing slowly in a
small ravine. Then it shot upward at very high speed.
Its diameter was about 20 m, and it had a revolving
middle band. A greenish light flashed under it, and
the witness felt a rush of air and a pungent smell.
(FS Jul., 59)
Mar. 18, 1950 Lago Argentino (Argentina). A rancher, Wilfredo H.
1830 Arevalo, saw two objects, one of which landed. He
walked within 150 m of the aluminum-looking craft
which gave off a greenish-blue vapor and "an intense
smell of burning benzine." A large, flat section on
top was revolving above a glass cabin in which could
be seen four tall men, dressed in something like
cellophane, working at various instruments. They saw
him and shone a light in his direction while a blue
light illuminated the craft; the vapor increased and
flames (alternately reddish and greenish) shot out of
the base while the object rose with a faint hum. Both
craft flew away toward Chile, leaving bluish trails.

Apr., 1950 Juneau (Alaska). Mikel Konrad made a movie of
eight disks he saw landing and taking off 60 km north
of (Quincy)
Apr. 08, 1950 Kokomo (Indiana). A metal worker was awakened
0200 by his dog and observed an object 60 m away at low
altitude. It was a gray metal disk, 5 m in diameter,
shaped like a top with a kind of turret. It was oscil-
lating, spinning slowly, and had three portholes shin-
ing with a blue-white light. It hovered for about 2
min, left toward the north, very fast. (Atic)
Apr. 08, 1950 River Road near Amarillo (Texas). David, 12, and
afternoon Charles, 9, Lightfoot saw a disk land behind a hill
and touched it. It was the size of a car tire, about 30
cm high, with a rounded top that rotated and a pivot
between the base and the top. It took off very fast.
The faces and arms of the boys later became red.
Apr. 20, 1950 Lufkin (Texas). Jack Robertson was driviug about
night 13 km west of town when he saw a round object about
3 m in diameter hovering about 7 m above him with
a dull red glow. It took off with a "swooshing roar"
as sparks flew from a slot under it. Minutes later the
witness feIt a burning sensation on his face. (FS
Jul., 59)
Apr. 24, 1950 Abbiate Guazzone (Italy). Bruno Facchini heard and
2200 saw sparks coming from a dark, hovering object, near
which a man dressed in tight-fitting clothes and wear-
ing a helmet seemed to be making repairs. Three
other men were seen near the craft. When the work
was finished, a trap through which light had been
shining was closed and the thing took off. The witness
had the time to note many details of the machine and
its occupants. (FSR 63, 2; Magonia)
May. 07, 1950 Ely (Nevada). A couple and their grandson were re-
1845 turning from a picnic when, about 14 km south of
Ely, they saw a silvery-white object at treetop level.
It hovered for 10 min, then oscillated "as if attempt-
ing to rise" and suddenly flew out of sight at high
speed. (Atic)
Jul. 02, 1950 Steep Rock Lake (Canada). In a story strangely sim-
ilar to that of Mr. Kiehl (Aug., 1914) (Case 40) a
man and his wife saw a double saucer with portholes
and a rotating antenna come to rest on the surface of
the lake. Ten figures, 1.20 m tall, dressed in shiny
clothing, emerged and walked on deck like robots
"changing direction without turning their bodies."
Their faces could not be seen. One of them wore a
red cap, had darker arms and legs and "seemed to be
their chief." They immersed a hose in the lake, then
took off. Fishermen later reported a green moss form-
ing on the lake. (Wilkins U)
Jul. 20, 1950 Porto Novo (Brazil). Mr. Campello and several
others in a car saw two large, silvery objects by the
side of the road, one on a hillock, the other on flat
ground, about 50 m away from each other. They came
within 600 m of the objects, which went away at "an
incredible speed," causing a rush of air that rocked
the car. (SBEDV 30)
Jun. 19, 1951 Sonderborg (Denmark). Joseph Matiszewski, a me-
1200 chanic, heard a whistling sound and saw an object
land in a meadow. Approaching within 50 m, he
found himself paralyzed and observed that birds had
stopped singing and cows seemed to be similarly un-
able to move. From the object emerged four hand-
some men who had brown skin and wore black shiny
suits and translucent helmets. Eight objects also
emerged from the craft and hovered above it. Other
men inside the craft and on its deck appeared to be
making repairs, then the objects flew to about 100 m
altitude and climbed rapidly out of sight. Only then
did the paralysis subside. (Nachrichten May., 59)
Sep. , 1951 Central Australia. A group of Unmatjera aborigines
observed a shiny circular object land near a similar
craft, about 12 m in diameter. Several min later, a
dwarf dressed in a shiny suit and having "a round,
shiny head" came out of one craft and entered the
other; both took off with a buzzing sound. (Edwards
Oct. 26, 1951 Australia. The driver of a transcontinental train on
0400 the east-west line saw an object that illuminated the
countryside like the full moon. It flew very fast, came
close to the train, appeared ready to land in the
desert, then took off and disappeared. (Wilkins A
Nov. 2, 1951 Mojave (California). Two forest observers were in a
2300 canyon 50 km north of the Mojave when they saw a
disk-shaped flying object in the southwest; 10 m esti-
mated diameter, 3 m thick, blue-green, well-defined,
surrounded with a glow of same color. Stopping their
jeep, they signaled to the object, which approached
within a few meters, flew away, seemed to play with
them. Eventually it vanished "like a magician's
trick." (Atic)
Dec., 1951 Peru (Nebraska). A man from Lincoln was driving to
0300 Indiana when he saw a blue light in the northwest
sky. It vanished to the southeast. The witness missed
a turn, had to go back toward Auburn, and had
reached a point northwest of Peru when he saw an
orange glow in the sky. Coming near, he observed
the glow came from a cauldron-shaped object on the
ground, about 12 m from the road. He stopped to
examine the object, which measured about 10 m
diameter and seemed to be made of cast iron. Thirty
cm from the top was a row of windows, 25 cm in
diameter, from which the orange light was coming.
On the other side was a blue flamelike glow. There
was no noise, no sign of life or activity, and no an-
tenna or protrusion. The witness drove away. (Atic)
Dec., 1951 Red Springs (North Carolina). Sam Coley and his
two children saw an object with a human-looking
occupant. (Humanoids 52)
Jan., 1952 Weston (Wyoming). A 38-year-old rancher saw a
2230 "shooting star" that suddenly stopped in mid-air be-
tween him and a mountain. It was seen spinning in a
clockwise direction. It had one red window period-
ially facing the observer. It went down toward the
Little Powder River and came up again. The witness
turned his car to send light signals, to which the object
seemed to respond by stopping its red window facing
the witness's location. Spinning resumed, the object
rose and came down. A similar craft arrived and both
went into the deep valley, out of sight. (Atic)
Early 1952 Goose Bay (Labrador). A fiery, spherical object made
2242 a right-angle turn during an observation by a C-54
crew flying from Westover to Goose Bay. It was also
seen from the ground by the control tower and by two
men who plunged to the earth when the object made
a low pass at them. It went away at 2247. (Quincy)
Summer, 1952 Itenhaem (Brazil). A woman was awakened by a
0300 thunderclap and a strong bluish light. As she got out,
she saw a large number of hovering disk-shaped ma-
chines resembling "inverted soup plates" 200 m away
at an altitude of about 1 m. She observed them for
30 min, saw two figures standing on one of the craft
and looking at the sky. They went back inside, and
shortly thereafter the "fleet" took off, one object at a
time. (FSR 68,1)
Summer, 1952 Martin County (Texas). Mrs. Rogers saw an object
descend slowly and pass across a pasture at 7 m alti-
tude. She stopped her car and observed it was "wob-
bling" in mid-air, was shaped like a turtle, and showed
three oarlike protrusions that moved slowly. Esti-
mated dimensions: 5 by 4 m, 1 m thick. It was
greenish-gray in color, emitted a blue flame, but
showed no other light. (Barker 78)
Jun. 15, 1952 Magneville (France). Men at work in the forest saw
large, circular objects similar to parachutes coming
down. Half a dozen witnesses. (France-Soir Jun. 18,
Jul. 11, 1952 Hasselbach (Germany). Oscar Linke, former Wehr-
macht major, and his daughter Gabrielle, 11, had to
leave their motorcycle when they had a flat tire. In-
side the woods the girl noticed two men in silvery
suits examining the ground in a clearing near a pink
disk-shaped object, 8 m in diameter, showing a double
row of openings around the rim and a black turret on
top. One of the men had a flashing box. Both men
went inside, and the disk vibrated, rose along the
turretlike cylinder, then spun faster and rose out of
sight. (Guieu 52)
Jul. 20, 1952 Dai-el-Aouagri (Morocco). Approximate date. R.
0030 Petijean saw a luminous object, 20 m diameter, on the
ground. It gave off bluish flashes as it took off, leaving
a smell of burning sulphur. (Quincy)
Jul. 24, 1952 Vico (Italy). A man who was fishing in the Serchio
night River saw a disk hovering for 10 min. From it hung
a hose that plunged into the water. The object was
20 m in diameter, with five propellers in the rear and
a dome with something like blades on top. An orange
glow could be seen through slits along the deck. A
man wearing a diving helmet looked at the witness
through a window, and he received a kind of electric
shock as a "green ray" hit him. He looked up with
difficulty, in time to see the object fly away toward
the east. Six days later a stranger with a foreign accent
contacted the witness and intimidated him. (FSR
Jul. 29, 1952 Enid (Oklahoma). Sidney Eubank went to the Enid
police station and told Sergeant Vern Bennell that
an enormous disk had buzzed his car as he drove be-
tween Bison and Waukonis on Highway 81. The rush
of air made the car leave the road while the object
flew west very fast. (Anatomy 134)
Aug. 19, 1952 West Palm Beach (Florida). Ronny Desvergers saw
evening a large, round, dark object above him in a clearing. It
had a turret on top. Red balls of light were emitted
by the object and burned him. He also observed a
"hideous" creature aboard the craft. Grass roots were
scorched at the site. (Ruppelt 222; Magonia)
Aug. 24, 1952 Frontenac (Kansas). A man driving through a wood
0600 encountred a strange object and stopped to observe
it. It looked like two turtle shells glued together, about
25 m long, with a humanoid creature in what ap-
peared to be a control cabin in front. Windows lighted
by an intense blue light and a throbbing sound were
also reported. The object was oscillating and suddenly
flew straight up with a strong humming noise. The
middle section supported what looked like propellers.
The object hovered 3 m above ground. (Atic)
Aug. 27, 1952 Lamberton (North Carolina). A saucer-shaped craft,
3 by 2 m, landed on the witness's property after hitting
a chimney. A little man, about 70 cm tall, emerged
and was asked whether he was hurt, but he did not
answer. The craft took off with a whistling sound.
(Wilkins A 268)
Aug. 31, 1952 Pennsylvania, exact location unknown. Herbert Long
saw an object land 15 m away from the road. He made
a drawing of it. (Wilkins A 257)
Sep. 12, 1952 Flatwoods (West Virginia). A group of young
sunset people saw a "meteor" land on top of a hill and went
to the site with Kathleen Hill and three men. They
observed a globe as large as a house making a throb-
bing or hissing sound and a huge figure with glowing
orange eyes nearby. About 4 m tall, the figure had a
red face and "floated" toward the witnesses, who fled
in terror. A lingering smell and skid marks were
found. (Humanoids 52)
Sep. 13, 1952 Frametown (West Virginia). Mr. and Mrs. George
Snitowski and their little girl suddenly found their
car stalled, and an unpleasant smell (ether mixed with
sulphurous smoke) filled the air. Mr. Snitowski
thought a chemical plant might be burning in the area
and walked toward a strong light visible in the woods,
in spite of the nauseous smell. Coming near it, he felt
pricklings throughout his body, had to stop, lost his
balance several times as he returned to the car-
where he found his wife terrified, pointing to a giant
creature (3 m tall), human-shaped, 10 m away. They
locked the car as "it" inspected the vehicle, glided
away and went into the woods. Soon afterward, the
sphere of light was observed to rise gradually, to swing
like a pendulum, and to leave a luminous trail. (Paul
Oct. 15, 1952 Le Vigan (France). Approximate date. Figures with
1910 helmets and masks were seen through lighted windows
inside a bright yellow, cigar-shaped object on the
ground. Length 30 m, diameter 6 m. Forward section
was rounded, and a sort of fog was noted at both ends
of object. (Quincy; Anatomy 62)
Oct. 27, 1952 Marignane Airport (France). Customs officer Ga-
0203 briel Gachignard observed a cigar-shaped object land
briefly on the airfield 100 m away, producing a dull
sound. The object was dark with four lighted win-
dows. It took off with a "swish" and a shower of
sparks when the witness ran toward it. (Challenge 6)
Nov., 1952 Dublin (Ireland). A child was burned when a strange
disk, 25 cm in diameter, landed near Dublin. (Per-
Nov. 18, 1952 Castelfranco (Italy). Nello Ferrari, 41, a farmer,
found himself flooded with a reddish light and saw
a large plate 10 m above him, between gold and cop-
per in color. At the center of the bottom surface, 20 m
in diameter, was a cylinder of 5 m diameter made of
rapidly rotating parts, producing a noise similar to
that of an electric motor. On the upper surface was a
turret inside which three occupants were visible, look-
ing directly at the witness. They looked perfectly
human, wore rubber coveralls and transparent face
masks. They spoke a few words, which were not
understood; a loud metallic noise was heard; and the
top part of the object lowered itself toward the lower
plate. The sound gained intensity, and the craft flew
vertically at very high speed. (102)
Nov. 21, 1952 Belle-Ile (France). At a place alled "La Butte" a
luminous sphere, which seemed to spin, its color
changing from orange to white, was seen at low alti-
tude. It oscillated left and right, then took off toward
the southwest, according to the witness, Mr. Gauci.
(Challenge 56)
Jan. 29, 1953 Conway (South Carolina). Hearing a commotion in
his barn, a farmer observed an object about 7 m long
and 4 m wide at treetop level. It was light gray in
color and lit up inside. It resembled a half egg. The
witness fired his gun at the object. Numerous livestock
died "mysteriously" in the area after the sighting.
May. 20, 1953 Brush Creek (California). Two miners, John Q.
1830 Black, 48, and John Van Allen, reported that an
object, silvery, 2.5 m in diameter, 2 m thick, with a
tripod landing gear, landed on a sand bar 50 m away
from them. An occupant described as a broad-
shouldered dwarf wearing clothing that covered the
head and the trunk was also seen. His arms and legs
were covered with tweedlike cloth fastened at the
wrists and ankle. He filled a shiny pail with water
and handed it to someone inside the craft. He then
appeared to notice Black and jumped into the craft,
which made a hissing sound and departed. (Human-
oids 53)
Jun. 18, 1953 Houston (Texas). Howard Phillips, Hilda Walker
0230 and Judy Meyers saw in a garden at 118 East Third
Street a strange "shadow" on the lawn which re-
sembled a "flying man," and they watched it take off.
(Wilkins A 261)
Jun. 20, 1953 Brush Creek (California). John Q. Black, witness of
1830 the May. 20 incident, observed an exact repetition of
the scene, including the "little man." Van Allen saw
only the landing marks, about 30 cm wide and re
sembling elephant tracks. (Humanoids 53)
Jun. 24, 1953 Hampton Bay (Long Island). A civilian woman saw
0018 something like "a large aircraft" flying very slowly
and low. It had a lighted red band around the middle
and was coming straight toward her house with an
oscillating motion. She still thought it was an aircraft
of some new design when it stopped near her, 25 m
above ground. Then it flew backward over the water
and hovered, making the same noise as a swarm of
bees. The top section supported a series of red lights
and a cabin with four portholes through which a con-
trol panel was visible. No occupant was seen. The
cabin rose above the object, rotated, then glided back.
The object tilted toward the west and rose toward the
southeast, disappearing within 3 sec at an 80 degree angle
of climb after the 3-min sighting. Diameter: 30 m.
Two days later a yellowish moss was observed at the
site. (Atic)
Jul. 02, 1953 Villares des Saz (Spain). Approximate date. An il-
1300 literate boy cowherd, Maximo Munos Olivares, 14,
saw a "big balloon" on the ground behind him when
a faint whistling attracted his attention. Shaped like
a water jug, it was metallic. Through an opening came
three dwarfs 60 cm tall, with yellow faces, narrow
eyes, and oriental features. They spoke in a language
he could not understand. They were dressed in blue,
had a sort of flat hat with a visor in front and a metal
sheet on their arms. One of them smacked the boy's
face, then they reentered the machine, which glowed
very brightly, made a soft whistling sound and went
off "like a rocket." Footprints and four holes 5 cm
deep forming a perfect square 36 cm in side were
found by police. (Humanoids 29)
Jul. 31, 1953 Wolin (Poland). A metallic object 30 m in diameter
1900 was observed by five Polish and two German workers
as it landed in a field close to a railway. It was shaped
like a sphere with a flat disk around it, showing
numerous openings at the periphery. (Intelligence
Digest Nov., 53)
Aug. 16, 1953 Tours (France). Claude Pasquier saw two disks flying
2030 very low, quite slowly, along a straight course, with a
"hard" sound. (Anatomy 65, 141)
Aug. 18, 1953 Ciudad Valleys (Mexico). Approximate date. Cab
evening driver Salvador Villanueva, 40, observed two creatures
1.2 m tall wearing coveralls with wide, shiny, per-
forated belts, metal collars, and small, black, shiny
boxes on their backs. They had helmets under their
arms. The witness thought they were pilots of Indian
race. One of them spoke to him in Spanish, "stringing
the words together" in a strange accent. Trivial mat-
ters were discussed until dawn, when they returned to
their craft, 13 m in diameter, through a staircase under
the lower disk. The witness ran away when invited to
follow them. The object rose with a pendulum mo-
tion and shot up vertically. (Humanoids 32; FSR 56, 2)
Sep. 04, 1953 Tonnerre (France). A woman saw two objects on the
2130 ground and three 1.5-m-tall men running toward the
craft. They had oversized heads and wore helmets
and boots. One entered the elongated object, 5 m
long, 1.5 m wide, which spread "wings" that made it
look like a butterfly. It then took a vertical position,
resting on a tripod, and took off with the spherical
object into which the other two creatures had gone.
Traces were found at the spot. (GEPA 68, 1)
Sep. 12, 1953 Brovst (Denmark). Brovst was the scene of an at-
tempted abduction of a girl by two humanoids emit-
ting a golden light. Their hands were rugged and cold
like a fish. (Guieu)
Oct. 25, 1953 Santa Fe (New Mexico). Jim Milligan, 16, was driv-
2130 ing through a park when he saw something fall in
front of his car and stopped as the object landed in
some bushes. He walked toward it, found a craft that
looked like two ship hulls, about 3 m long, 2 m wide
glued together. When he tried to touch it, the object
flew away. (Wilkins A 223)
Nov., 1953 Gjasjoen Bridge (Norway). Mr. Trygve, Mrs. Bufflot
and a neighbor saw an object rise from behind a hill,
oscillate over a lake, follow their car, and stop ahead
of them just above the ground. They stopped, felt
"pricklings" until the craft took off vertically. A watch
stopped working, and numerous people vouch for the
fact that the paint on the car changed from dark
beige to bright green. (APRO Mar., 62; FSR 56, 5)
Dec., 1953 Sherbrook (Canada). Mrs. Orfei heard a knock at
the door in the middle of the night and obtained no
answer when she asked who it was. When more furi-
ous knocks were heard, her Alsatian dog jumped to-
ward the door, but suddenly retreated, trembling as
if terrified and retired to a corner. Mrs. Orfei went
to an upper door and saw two "indescribable" shadows
go away from the house. A while later a big, round
object took off 100 m away with a blue-green lightning.
The police found broken bushes as evidence of an
enormous weight. (Oltre il Cielo, Vol. I)
Dec. 31, 1953 Quantico Marine Base (Virginia). Marines observed
the landing of an unknown round object which
throbbed and pulsated, emitting red lights. (Wilkins

Jan. 04, 1954 Marignane Airport (France). Mr. Chesneau, fireman,
2100 saw a round luminous object slowly coming down
and called the control tower to report it. When he
came out again, the object had disappeared. (Guieu)
Feb., 1954 Todd River Downs (Australia). A native was riding
a horse over a low ridge when a spherial object about
13 m in diameter "nearly skittled me off my horse."
It went up suddenly with a heavy wind, rumbling
and emitting four columns of smoke. (Wilkins U 211)
Feb., 1954 Peakskill (New York). Mr. and Mrs. Forster stated
they saw a craft on the ground, with a woman close
by. She was wearing luminous clothing, a sort of hood,
and thick glasses and held a tube in one hand and a
box in the other. Mrs. Forster had to be taken to the
hospital in a state of shock. (Barker)
Mar., 1954 Santa Maria (Brazil). Rubem Hellwig was driving
1700 when he saw a football-shaped machine, the size of a
Volkswagen, on the ground. He walked toward it and
met two men of slim build, normal height, their faces
brownish, wearing no helmets. One was inside the
object while the other collected grass samples. They
spoke to Hellwig in a strange language, and yet he
said he understood they were asking for ammonia.
He directed them to a nearby town. The craft van-
ished silently and instantly with blue and yellow
flames. (1; Humanoids 33)
Mar., 1954 Santa Maria (Brazil). Rubem Hellwig again saw a
early strange machine the next day. He observed a tall, fair-
complexioned man and two women, who had light
brown skin, long black hair, dark, slanted eyes. All
three wore one-piece garments of a fabric resembling
suede, with zippers. They told Hellwig that they were
scientists, spoke of the natural riches of Brazil, and
expressed surprise that he did not run away. (1;

Apr. 22, 1954 San Nicholas Island (California). American military
1400 personnel saw a cigar-shaped object of a gray color
coming to the ground. Smoke was seen to rise where
it landed, but a search yielded no results. (Atic)
May. 18, 1954 Cannon Air Force Base (New Mexico). Two persons
1900 witnessed the landing of a lens-shaped object the size
of a house. It came to the ground near the railroad
tracks, kicking up a small sand storm in the desert.
One witness first decided to approach it, then ran
away in fear. (Binder)
May. 20, 1954 Bruton (Great Britain). Nigel Frapple was cycling
0200 home from a dance in Wincanton. At Redlynch
crossroads, he saw an orange glow in a field and
observed it from a hedge. It came from a huge object
35 m away, less than 7 m above the ground, which
made a throbbing sound. After 1 min, it moved to-
ward the northwest, accelerating and climbing. (2;
Humanoids 3)
Jun. 09, 1954 East Dandenong (Australia). Janet Brown, 16, and a
1820 13-year-old friend heard a loud noise and saw a large,
dark object that "burst into light" hovering 20 m
away at the height of a factory gate. It was cylindrical,
10 m long, 5 m high, with a canopy on top. It flew
away and was lost to sight behind some trees. (Wil-
kins U 216)
Jun. 21, 1954 Ridgeway (Canada). Mr. and Mrs. Guy Baker saw a
disk, about 14 m in diameter, with a dome and several
rotating lights. They had to push their car, which
could not be started until the object left the ground.
They found a large, brown, circular spot in the pasture
where the disk had been resting. (104)
Jul. 7, 1954 Garson (Canada). A miner saw a landed object and
a giant man with strange, burning eyes. He fainted.
When he regained consciousness, object and entity
had vanished. Investigated by the Royal Canadian
Air Force. (Keyhoe C 184)
Jul. 20, 1954 Oslo (Norway). Near this city, two men were chased
by an object and stopped their car to observe it. After
the sighting, a watch stopped working and the paint
on the car allegedly changed color. (Challenge 129;

Aug. 10, 1954 Hemmingford (Canada). The Coupal childrm said
2130 that a brightly lighted object followed them to the
farm. Mr. Coupal and his oldest son went to the field
where the children had been playing and saw an
orange object rise and speed off to the west. Grass
was flattened over 15 m, with two tracks about 5 m
long. (Wilkins U 237)
Aug. 23, 1954 Varennes, near Diges (France). Approximate date.
A strange object hovered low over the house of Mr.
Lucas and left straight up. (4)
Aug. 23, 1954 Lugrin, near Thonon (France). Elise Blanc ap-
proached an object looking like an aluminum trailer
with two small beings in silvery dress, grunting like
pigs, standing close by. The craft took on a fiery color
and flew away. (Challenge 129)
Aug. 27, 1954 Boston Creek (Canada). A wingless flying object was
2030 seen by Bill Supa, an employee of the Caswell Con-
struction Co. It landed about 2 km way from the
witness, who approached within 300 m before it took
off and flew away. Grass was flattened where it had
landed. (Wilkins U 227)
Aug. 28, 1954 Quebec (Canada). Two boys saw a craft land and
two or three men come out. No details given. (Con-
stance 277)
Aug. 30, 1954 North Bay (Canada). Sgt. Durdle saw a brilliant,
0525 circular object flying across Lake Nipissing toward the
Royal Canadian Air Force base. An oblong canister
was hanging down from a central section, which sup-
ported a long cone with a spinning globe on top.
When it tilted, the witness was able to observe
regulatorlike devices inside the machine through a
vertical lighted slit. Six brilliant appendages, which
looked like necklaces, were hanging from the craft.
Durdle woke up four Air Force men, who observed
the object spiraling away. (Wilkins U 227)
Sep. 03, 1954 Souk-el-Khemis (Tunisia). Many workers in the fields
12 km south of the town saw an object apparently
made of transparent plastic fly over the houses, stop
on edge, and swing like a pendulum a few meters
above the ground. It made several erratic jumps, then
resumed its horizontal position and flew away. (5)
Sep. 07, 1954 Harponville (France). Between Harponville and
0715 Contay, two bricklayers, Emile Renard, 27, and Yves
Degillerboz, 23 saw an object floating in mid-air
over a field: "It looked like an unfinished haystack,
with a plate turned upside down on top of it." When
they approached, it took off. Diameter 10 m, height 3
m. A kind of door was noticed. The observation lasted
over 3 min. The object released smoke when it de-
parted. (6; M 35)
Sep. 10, 1954 Mourieras (France). A farmer, Mr. Mazaud was
2030 walking home when he was suddenly confronted with
a helmeted being of average height who made friendly
gestures, then went back into the brush, entered a
cigar-shaped object about 4 m long, which took off
toward Limoges. A few minutes later witnesses in
Limoges reported a disk-shaped, red object leaving a
bluish trail. (7; M 40)
Sep. 10, 1954 Quarouble (France). A metal worker, Marius De-
2230 wilde, 34, came out of his house as a dog was barking
and saw a dark object on the railroad tracks, then
observed two dwarfs walking toward it. When he
tried to stop them, he found himself paralyzed as a
strong orange light was projected at him.The creatures
were under 1 m tall, bulky, and wore dark diving suits.
No face or arms were visible. Traces made by an
object of estimated weight 30 tons were noted by
French Air Force and police on the ballast. (8; M 44;
Sep. 14, 1954 Coldwater (Kansas). John J. Swain, 12, was driving
2200 a tractor back from the fields when he saw a small

home. Two hours later, an 18-year-old man named
Cheradame fell from his motorcycle as it suddenly
failed at the same spot, and alerted neighbors saw

ing three times. Then the craft gained altitude and
flew away, leaving a bluish trail. (82)
Oct. 31, 1954 Corrompu (France). Near Long, P. Petit and his em-
ployee, Mr. Tillier, with a shop owner, Mr. Pecquet,

in a bluish cloud. The witnesses ran away. (90)
Nov. 03, 1954 Oued Beth (Morocco). Maroc-Presse reported that
0700 one of its employees, Mr. E., driver of a delivery truck,
"a man of sane judgment and excellent eyesight,"
observed an object flying over the Beth River. "I am
positive it was not an aircraft or any known machine
but a circular, flat craft which had the appearance of
copper. It flew normally for some time, then it sud-
denly flipped over. Therefore, I was able to see the
whole disk and was amazed when it came down into a
field where it landed on edge, very gently. Almost im-
mediately it rose into the sky at great speed, resumed
its horizontal position and was soon lost to sight."
Nov. 04, 1954 Pontal (Brazil). Jose Alves was fishing in the Pardo
night River when he suddenly saw a craft approach with a
wobbling motion and landing near him. Shaped like

gave off an orange light, land in a pasture. Three men
in dark coveralls were standing nearby. One was hold-
ing a sort of box, "which emitted a beam of light three
meters long." The other two were holding objects
that looked like weapons. Another witness fled and
felt pricklings on his face as he ran. Four photographs
of the scene were taken. Traces: a whitish substance
and a circle 3 m in diameter where the ground had an
ashlike appearance. (Personal)
Nov. 07, 1954 Monte Ortobene (Sardinia). A motorcyclist saw a
1515 disk-shaped machine land near the road. He tried to
turn too sharply and fell 50 m away. A taxi driver
stopped to observe the object, which gave off a soft
whirring sound and soon took off. Farmers on the
other side of the mountain saw it fly away. The disk,
about 15 m in diameter, was made of a silvery, rough
metal. It supported a dome and showed several port-
holes. (97; Wilkins U 237)
Nov. 08, 1954 Monza (Italy). A crowd of about 150 people, destroy-
1030 ing barriers to come closer, gathered to observe a lumi-
nous craft landed in a stadium. The object rested on

1800 persons reported seeing a luminous sphere land at the
edge of the forest and become dark. The next morn-
ing, investigation disclosed that an area 4 or 5 m in
diameter had no leaves, while the ground elsewhere
was covered with them. The earth seemed to have
been dug up. (Personal)
Nov. 08, 1954 La Tessoualle (France). Andre Chaillou felt pricklings
dusk in his hands, "in spite of his gloves," when a blue disk
came close to his motorcycle and his electrical system
failed. He was unable to move or articulate a word
for several minutes. As soon as the blue light was
turned off, he started again and went near the light
when it reappeared 200 m away. He saw the object,
a cone 5.5 m in size, rise vertically with a soft whistling,
then fly horizonally to the north. (98)
Nov. 09, 1954 Bois de Villers (Belgium). Two villagers reported the
landing of a 2-m-high "flying egg" in a pasture.
Screams seemed to emanate from it. (Wilkins U 251)

took off very fast. (99; Humanoids 33)
Nov. 14, 1954 Isola (Italy). Amerigo Lorenzini, a farmer, saw a
afternoon bright, cigar-shaped craft land near him and took
cover. Out of it came three dwarfs dressed in metallic
diving suits. They centered their attention on rabbits
in a cage while speaking among themselves in an un-
known language. Thinking they were going to steal
the animals, the farmer aimed a rifle at the intruders,
but it failed to fire and the witness suddenly felt so
weak that he had to drop the gun. The dwarfs took
the rabbits, and their craft departed, leaving a bright
trail. (100)
Nov. 14, 1954 Wasmes (Belgium). Approximate date. Marcel
night Pipers a gardener saw a craft resting near the road

heads and lead-gray skin. The craft had two sharp-
pointed propellers in front, which started spinning.
The craft took off suddenly with a hissing sound. (90)
Nov. 28, 1954 Caracas (Venezuela). G. Gonzales and Jose Ponce,
0200 truck drivers, found their road blocked by a luminous
sphere over 3 m diameter, hovering 2 m above ground.
A small creature with claws and glowing eyes came
toward them. Gonzales grabbed it, found it strangely
light (less than 2O kg), and observed its body was
very hard and covered with fur. But the creature
pushed him back, while two other dwarfs emerged
from the bushes and leaped into the sphere, carrying
stones and other samples. Gonzales was blinded by a
light from the craft and the strange beings flew away.

and fired twice at the very tall figure who came out of
the turret on the craft. Immediately a very strong wind
was felt, and the craft took off amidst a reddish glow.
Dec. 09, 1954 Linha Bela Vista (Brazil). A farmer, O. da Costa e
evening Rosa, observed a stranger standing near a machine
shaped like "a tropical helmet," cream-colored, sur-
rounded with haze, making the same noise as a sew-
ing machine. Another man was looking at a fence, and
the head and arms of a third one were visible inside
the craft. As the witness dropped his hoe, the man
smiled, picked it up, and gave it back to him, after
which they motioned him to stay away and took off.
They were of average height, had broad shoulders,
long hair, very white skin, and slanted eyes. They
wore brown coveralls ending with shoes without heels.

attacked them, in an apparent kidnapping attempt.
The dwarfs were extremely strong, their bodies cov-
ered with hair. They fled into the machine, and it took
off. (Lor. I 51)
Dec. 11, 1954 Linha Bela Vista (Brazil). Near the site of Case 349,
1700 Pedro Morais saw two human beings dressed in "yel-
low bags" take a tobacco plant and a chicken, then go

ward. (Lor. I 52)
Dec. 29, 1954 Bru (France). Near Gardonne, Mr. Gamba saw an
2100 oval red object 50 m away. When he tried to approach
it, he found he was unable to move. As soon as this
"paralysis" subsided, he ran to get his brothers and
came back to the craft, which turned white, then red.
It rose and flew away toward the east. It had been on
the ground for at least 15 min. Strange traces were
found, as if the ground had been dug up. Small trees
near the river were found damaged, as if they had
been cut with a knife. (103)

May. 29, 1955 Smithfield, near Cairns (Australia). Approximate
1920 date. Three farmers, among them Thomas Robinson,
saw a light growing in size for 2 min and flying
between them and Mt. Williams. Looking like a
"light airplane on fire," it changed course, losing alti-
tude and trailing flames. It touched the ground, light-
ing up the whole area, rose again, and began to "feel
its way along the crooked edge of the cane field and
the swamp toward our house." It returned to earth
four times. The dogs ran out barking as it landed
within 100 m of the witnesses before taking off again.

driving near this town when she saw four "bug-eyed"
creatures near the road. They were small beings with
thin arms, large eyes, and pointed chins. Two were
turned away from the witness; one was bending over
with something like a stick in its hand; and the fourth
one was facing her with its right arm raised. It had
bulging eyes, a sort of cap, no visible mouth, a long
pointed nose, a chin which came to a sharp point, and
long thin arms with claws. (Stringfield; Humanoids
Jul. 18, 1955 Plessiel Airfield, near Abbeville (France). Mr. Maupin
0300 and five other witnesses on the airfield were blinded

Aug. 16, 1955 Bradford (England). Mr. Ernest Suddard, 35, and
0400 his 13-year-old son were in a lorry on Roundhill Street
when they saw what seemed to be a human being
about 1.20 m tall, dressed in skin-tight black clothes.
It held its arms close to its sides, its feet close together,
and walked by a series of jumps. On its chest was a
silver disk perforated with holes. It turned off sud-
denly into a passageway and was lost to sight. The
witnesses were too amazed to follow it. (Constance

Douglas when they observed a hovering object which
disappared and reappeared as a spinning disk with
curved lines radiating from it. Other objects, silvery
and semi-transparent, soon appeared and were seen by
all children. They made musical sounds as they van-
ished and reappeared. One of them landed, and a
creature the size of a 4-year-old child, transparent,
wearing a belt with a bright disk, was seen nearby.
Another creature appeared and spoke to one of the
boys. All the children experienced visions of the ob-
ject and the creatures, as well as "arms" which ap-
peared to beckon to them. (TSR 67, 5)

15 min later the lights were seen again, stopping at
the zenith, merging, and diving to 50 m altitude. As
the bus arrived, it seemed that the objects had sepa-
rated and were about to abduct the witnesses, and
they ran to the vehicle in terror. (APRO Mar., 59)
Jun. 06, 1956 Banning (California). An object hovered about 30 m
0430 above and 100 m away from the witness's car. Showing
something like a dome on top, it crossed the road
slowly, turned, and crossed the road again behind the
car, then vanished suddenly. (Atic)
Jul. 20, 1956 Panorama City (California). Three witnesses inde-
pendently claimed that they observed a huge, ball-
shaped object from which emerged three beings. They
were nearly 2 m tall, had long, blond hair, and wore
tight, green suits. (Hanlon; Humanoids 64)
Sep., 1956 Cabo Frio (Brazil). O. Guarichi was walking on the
2030 beach with his dogs when he saw an object come from
the sea and land. Two men, 1.80 m tall, wearing
metallic-looking uniforms, emerged. One of them
picked up objects from the beach. There was an ex-
change of gestures with the witness. One of the dogs
turned away when the witness approached the craft,
which was 20 m wide 3 m high and showed flashing
lights as it left. (Nachrichten Mar., 61)
Jan. 15, 1957 Balfour (New Zealand). William West and Wallace
early Liddell saw an object similar to a shooting star coming
close to them appearing then as an oval, fluorescent
craft, about 40 m in diameter, which almost touched
the grass. They rushed to catch it, but it jumped away,
turning into a bluish-white sphere with a dark red
center. Each time they tried to reach it, the craft
jumped farther away. It cleared a high fence and
slowly vanished. The Invercargill Weather Bureau
had no explanation. (107)
Feb. 09, 1957 Georgetown (Connecticut). Approximate date. Ina
2200 Salter was driving on Route 53 in a desolate area when
she encountered a cigar-shaped objert about 5 m long,
showing several portholes, which was hovering close
to the ground to the left of the road. The portholes,
about 50 cm in diameter, were illuminated with a
yellowish light, and there were shadows moving be-
hind. As she passed the object, it took off straight up,
hovered for a few seconds, then rose out of sight
(APRO Mar., 62)
Mar. 08, 1957 Baudette (Minnesota). A pilot saw a circular object
night flying against the wind. It was luminous, about 5.5 m
in diameter, and flew so low that it appeared to suck
up the snow. (Keyhoe S)
Apr. 14, 1957 Vins-sur-Caramy (France). At an intersection, two
1500 women, Mrs. Garcin and Mrs. Rami, suddenly heard
a noise and saw behind them a top-shaped object, 1 m
high and 1 m wide, nearly touching the ground. It
made a sudden jump and landed again: There were a
number of antennalike projections on top of it. The
noise did not come from the object, but from a
metallic road sign vibrating in its vicinity. (M 207;
Challenge 14)
Apr. 19, 1957 Pacific Ocean, near Japan. Japanese fishermen aboard
1152 the "Kitsukawara Maru" saw two metal disks come
into the sky. This was followed by violent turbulence.
(Round-up 147)
Apr. 22, 1957 Palalda (France). Mr. and Mrs. Firmin Bason heard
1300 an unusual noise and saw a whirlwind of flames 10 or
15 m above ground, coming down toward the vine-
yard. It was red and blue, spinning wildly, flying
slowly. It hovered for 5 min over plants which moved
violently, then it flew south with a deafening roar,
hovered again and departed to the southwest. Diam-
eter at the top: about 5 m. (Ouranos 21)
May., 1957 Milford (Pennsylvania). Frances Stichler, who lived
on a farm, was working in her barn when she heard a
whirring sound and saw a bowl-shaped object, 7 m in
diameter, with a rim over 1 m wide about 5 m above
ground. It stopped with one side tilted toward her. A
man dressed in a loose, shiny, gray suit, wearing a
tight-fitting helmet, was facing her from inside the
object. He seemed of average height had deep-set
eyes, tanned skin, and a long face with a "quizzical"
expression. Almost immediately the object left toward
the southeast. (108; Humanoids 57)
May. 01, 1957 Pajasblancas Airport (Argentina). When his motor-
0700 cycle suddenly failed, the driver observed a disk, 2O m
in diameter and 5 m thick, hovering about 15 m above
ground. He hid in a ditch and saw the craft come
down, making a sound similar to air escaping from a
valve. A sort of lift descended from its base almost to
the ground. In it was a man of average height, who
made friendly gestures to the witness. He was dressed
in a plastic diving suit. The witness entered the ma-
chine and saw inside several people seated before
instrument panels, lighted by an extraordinary light.
He was then escorted out, and the disk rose to the
northwest. During the next hour, six sightings were
made along the same course by independent witnesses.
(Humanoids 35; FSR 65, 1; FSR 65, 4)
May. 10, 1957 Beaucourt-sur-Ancre (France). A Hungarian refugee,
2250 Michel Fekete, was riding his bicycle when he saw an
object hovering 30 cm above ground and four little
men nearby. The police found lavalike fragments at
the site. Six other witnesses vouch for the sighting
including Messrs. Iklef and Lepot and their wives.
The craft was luminous, pulsating between red and
white (remaining red longer). When white, it was
more blinding than a powerful searchlight. It was 50 m
away from the group of witnesses. Occupants were
about 1.30 m tall with a beige-gray body, an ab-
normally large black head, and a waddling gait. The
object flew away when a car came into view. (109; M
Jun. 5, 1957 Uriman (Venezuela). Undocumented report of a
landing and of "bellicose dwarfs." (Quincy)
Jul. 25, 1957 Sao Sebastiao (Brazil). Mr. Joao Guimaraes, who is
1910 a professor at the Catholic Faculty of Law in Santos,
was sitting near the shore when he saw a hat-shaped,
luminous craft approach from the sea and land near
him. From it came a metallic stairway. Two normal
men with long, fair hair hanging to their shoulders, a
youthful appearance and wearing one-piece suits,
came down, gave no verbal answers to his questions,
but invited him "telepathically" to come aboard the
craft. Inside the illuminated compartment, he sat on
a circular seat with the crew. The machine rose for a
short flight. On his return, Guimaraes found that his
watch no longer worked. (Humanoids 36; FSR 57, 6
Jul. 30, 1957 Galt, Ontario (Canada). Jack Stephenson was walk-
ing about 7 km from Galt when he saw a flash in the
sky. A circular object making a whirring sound came
down and landed with a throw of flames. It took off
again 30 min later,leaving the ground blackened and
branches broken. The craft had a stationary dome,
but the periphery was spinning. (Round-up 188)
Aug. 20, 1957 Quilino (Argentina). An Air Force man inside a tent
heard a loud, shrill sound and saw a disk that came
down as grass and plants fluttered wildly under it. He
found himself unable to draw his gun, which "seemed
to be glued in its holster." A voice came from the
craft, telling him in Spanish that UFO's had a base in
the Salta area and would soon show themselves to
warn all people about the dangers of a nuclear
catastrophe. (Humanoids 36)
Aug. 22, 1957 Cecil Naval Air Station (Florida). A black, bell-
1540 shaped object bearing two bright, white lights at the
top and maeasuring 15 m in diameter was chased by a
civilian in a car until the engine stalled. The object
was then hovering 3 m away. The underside of the
machine resembled a disk with fins. When a jet air-
craft took off from the airfield, the object went out of
sight almost instantaneously. The car battery was
found completely dead. There was no helicopter in
the area, although the two witnesses compared the
noise made by the object to that of a helicopter. (Atic)
Sep., 1957 Campinas (Brazil). A man suddenly fell, as if para-
lyzed, and his two companions then observed an ob-
ject shaped like a disk with a dome on top and another
dome under it, 50 m away. A door opened and three
men, 1.70 m tall, wearing close-fitting, iridescent
clothing, and who walked as if on skis, appeared to
make a check of the craft and the surroundings. They
gathered samples in a large box. The witnesses saw
small portholes and a tripod landing gear. The craft
took off after 20 min. (Nachrichten Jul., 60)
Sep. 10, 1957 Ubatuba (Brazil). Approximate date. Anonymous
witnesses saw a disk dive down and explode, shower-
ing the area with flaming fragments. Some samples
were gathered, sent to a Brazilian newsman, analyzed
by friends of Dr. Fontes, of Rio, and were found to
consist of surprisingly pure magnesium. (Lor.l 90; 110)
Sep. 16, 1957 Smithfield (Australia). Les McDonald, 17, and
930 Gladys Smith, 14, saw a red light changing to green,
spreading around them like a mist and covering an
area about 100 m diameter. They became nearly
paralyzed and "felt a warm glow." They had no fear,
but were "merely cognizant of things as they were
without being able to react." This sensation lasted
two min. (UFO Bulletin Dec., 57)
Sep. 19, 1957 Point Pleasant (New Jersey). A boomerang-shaped
1840 object bigger than a house was reported to have
landed. Grass flattened. (Atic)
Sep. 26, 1957 Yellow Falls (Texas). Three hundred people were
sunset said to have seen three elongated objects with a series
of portholes, maneuvering at ground level in an area
with many empty oil wells. One of these objects, said
to be 150 m long and 20 m high, pearl-colored, glisten-
ing under the setting sun and showing a series of
circles painted on its surface, landed for 20 min. An
occupant emerged, observed the abandoned derricks
and took off again. Observed through binoculars, he
appeared as a "monster," 1 m tall, moving with
strange jumps. He picked up something from the
ground. (Perego)
Sep. 29, 1957 Deerwood Nike Base (Maryland). Undocumented
0500 report of a landing observed by missile men. (Keyhoe
Oct., 1957 Niquelandia (Brazil). At the Gabiroba farm, owners
A. Santinoni and S. de Oliveira were blinded by
beam from a round object at ground level. The light
was green and yellow. When they came near, all went
dark and the object vanished. (Round-up 205)
Oct. 05, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Antonio Villas-Boas who
2300 could not sleep because of the heat, opened the
shutters of his house and saw a silvery glow in the
yard, but no flying object. The light moved and was
seen going over the house. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia)
Oct. 08, 1957 Nabouwalu (Fiji Islands). Two couples going from
1500 Nabouwalu to Nawaca in a motor boat saw a white
object come down from the sky, thought it was a
plane in trouble and went closer. They found the
object hovering 7 m above the water, and a figure on
board the craft aimed at them a beam so bright they
"felt weak." The figure disappeared suddenly, and
the object took off vertically at high speed. (Round-up
202; Challenge 18)
Oct. 10, 1957 Schenectady (New York). Mrs. Edward Yeager who
lived in a trailer on the Duanesburg-Church Road
near Mariaville, saw a circular object go down behind
the hill. Two min later it flew up again, very bright.
The next day she was feeding animals that ran away
as the same or a similar object came within 2 m of the
ground. Two dark, little men came out of the craft
and went into the woods. The object remained there
two min, then left. A search for the occupants proved
futile. A bus driver was said to have seen two craft
land in a nearby field at the same hour. (FSR 58, 3)
Oct. 10, 1957 Quebracoco (Brazil). Naval officer Miguel Espanhol
night and another man, traveling to Ceres, saw a bright
object that illuminated the countryside and came
down to ground level as the truck stalled. It was oval
or saucer-shaped, over 150 m in diameter and 40 m
deep, with a dome supporting a long "aerial" with a
red light on top. The bright light went off and the
witnesses saw seven childlike beings, with long hair
and luminous suits, who looked down at them for
about 3 min. The craft flew south and released a
smaller disk, which flew north. (Humanoids 36)
Oct. 11, 1957 Roulon (France). Two witnesses in a car saw some-
2000 thing they described as "a dark, transparent ball"
about 50 cm in diameter rising from the side of the
road. It had appendages trailing behind. (111)
Oct. 14, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Second observation by
2145 A. Villas-Boas. He was plowing a field with his
brother when they saw a red light at the edge of the
field. He went toward it, but it shifted its position
every time he went close. It vanished on the spot.
(FSR 66, 4; Magonia)
Oct. 15, 1957 Covington (Indiana). Mr. Moudy, a farmer, observed
daylight a silvery disk which hovered above his tractor; the
engine failed when the object rose. (Personal)
Oct. 16, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Third observation by A.
0100 Villas-Boas. Alone in the fields on a clear night, he
saw a big, red star which took the appearance of a
luminous, egg-shaped object and stopped 50 m above
his tractor. Its light was brighter than that of the
headlights as it landed 15 m away. The top part was
spinning. It became green as it slowed down, was then
seen as a flattened dome. Three legs emerged from the
machine as it settled down. The tractor engine stalled,
and the witness was seized by unknown individuals
and carried aboard the craft, where he was medically
examined, then left with a woman of short stature
with whom he had sexual intercourse. Villas-Boas
reported that crew members wore tight, white clothes
with a light on the belt, heelless white shoes, big
gloves, and opaque helmets with a slit at the level of
the eyes. Their language was shrill, and he could estab-
lish no verbal communication with them. (FSR 66,
4 et seq.)
Oct. 25, 1957 Petropolis (Brazil). A girl suffering from cancer ap-
peared about to die when the house was suddenly
illuminated by a strong light, as if a searchlight had
been aimed at the room. It came from an object whose
top part was reddish yellow. Two figures emerged
from it and entered the house. They were about 1.20 m
tall, had long yellow-red hair, small green, slanted
eyes, and wore white gloves and glowing white clothes.
Before the astounded witnesses (the author of the
report and the family of the girl), they used a device
producing a bluish-white light and another instu-
ment, in what appeared to be radiation treatment of
the patient. After 30 min they went away, leaving
her completely cured. The report was anonymous.
(FSR 67, 5)
Oct. 31, 1957 Longchaumois (France). A businessman and his wife
0000 saw a large, lighted object with openings, which hov-
ered, came to ground level, and took off with a great
increase in brightness at very high speed, but without
noise. (Personal)
Nov., 1957 Provencal (Louisiana). Haskell Raper, Jr., was driv-
2300 ing home on a rainy night when he saw a large, lighted
object on the road ahead, which he thought was a
truck. Suddenly the object flashed a beam of light
directly at the car, apparently exerting a strong
pressure and slowing it to a stop 5 m away. The object
was then described as oval, 5 m long, 3 m high, army
green in color. It bore lettering beginning with the
letters UN, followed by some numbers. A sort of heat
wave filled the car, and the witness ran out in panic
as the vehicle caught fire. The object rose with the
sound of a diesel engine. Raper ran to the town, less
than 2 km away; and reported the incident. The car,
a 1956 Ford, was completely destroyed. (FS Oct., 58)
Nov. 02, 1957 Canadian (Texas). 5 km west of this town, military
0330 and civilian witnesses reported a submarine-shaped
object, red and white, two or three times as long as a
car and about 3 m high, at ground level. A figure was
seen near this object, also something compared to a
white flag. When a car stopped in the vicinity, a
flash of light from the object coincided with the sud-
den failure of the headlights. (Atic)
Nov. 02, 1957 Levelland (Texas). A large number of reports from
2250 the Levelland area described a low-flying object, over
60 m long, equipped with a bright light, and which
interfered with car ignition. (Anatomy 136; map)
Nov. 03, 1957 White Sands (New Mexico). At Stallion Site, an
0300 army patrol in a jeep saw an orange, "apparently con-
trolled," luminous object on the ground near the site
of the first A-bomb explosion. It was first seen as a
sunlike source 50 m above ground, descending to
ground level after 3 min, and landing several km away
at the northern end of the testing grounds. Two wit-
nesses. (M 238)
Nov. 04, 1957 Elmwood Park (Illinois). Two policemen, Joseph
0315 Lukasek and Clifford Schau, and a third man named
Daniel De Giovanni, while looking for the cause of a
headlight failure, observed a fluorescent object 50 to
100 m away from them, coming down. The car had-
lights functioned properly again and they drove to-
ward the object but had to stop at a cemetery wall.
They turned off all lights and watched the object for
two min. It played "hide and seek" with them as they
tried to reach its location. (M 240; 113)
Nov. 05, 1957 New Castle (Indiana). An object looking like "a big
meat platter" was seen at close range by Mrs. Jasper
Barlow and her two children, who were inside their
car. It had a flickering light on the bottom. There was
no ignition interference noted. (M 245)
Nov. 05, 1957 New York City (New York). In Van Cortland Park,
0430 Frank C. was talking with a bus driver when they saw
in the park, about 400 m away, a metallic object
shaped like a disk, spinning with a soft whirring. On
top was a fixed dome with portholes. The object was
hovering at tree-height. A yellow light from the craft
suddenly illuminated the area, and it flew off "like a
shooting star." (M 241)
Nov. 05, 1957 Scotia (Nebraska). A man heard a noise similar to
1730 that of a helicopter and perceived a "burning" odor.
He saw a balloon-like, elongated object that came to
ground level, did not touch the ground, but rose again
and disappeared. The witness was "paralyzed" during
the observation. The object appeared to have gener-
ated thick smoke. (Atic)
Nov. 06, 1957 Santa Fe (New Mexico). J. Martinez and A. Gallegos
0010 saw an egg-shaped object coming toward them at low
altitude. It moved slowly, illuminating their car and
producing a humming sound. The car engine, the
clock and a wristwatch stopped. The object shot away
toward the southwest. (M 246)
Nov. 06, 1957 Seoul (Korea). North of Seoul a barrel-shaped object,
morning bluish-white and luminous, was seen close to the
ground, reflected in a pool of water. It rose and van-
ished "like a light switched off." (Atic)
Nov. 06, 1957 Playa del Rey (California). Richard Kehoe was driv-
0540 ing near the beach when his engine stopped, and so
did three other cars. The man got out and observed
an egg-shaped object wrapped in "a blue haze" on
the beach. Two men, below average height got out
of the craft and asked them questions about their
identity, what time it was, etc. They looked normal
wore black leather pants, white belts, light-colored
jerseys, and seemed to have yellowish-green skin. They
went back inside the craft, which left rapidly, and the
cars could then be started. (Humanoids 57)
Nov. 06, 1957 Lake County (Ohio). A civilian source reported an
0630 object so bright that his eyes could not sustain it. It
appeared to land on a ridge, then took off again. It
was round and much larger than a plane, had an
"odd color," left no trail and made no noise. (Atic)
Nov. 06, 1957 Knoxville (Tennessee). 12-year-old Everett Clark
0630 saw a strange object on the ground and four occu-
pants, two men and two women who spoke a lan-
guage he thought was similar to German. They went
back to the craft in a manner the witness could not
understand, for he saw no door. (M 271;114;
Nov. 06, 1957 Everittstown (New Jersey). John Trasco saw a bril-
evening liant, egg-shaped object hovering in front of a barn
and was confronted with a being 1 m tall with a
putty-colored face and frog-like eyes. He thought the
dwarf said in broken English: "We are peaceful
people; we only want your dog." The little man, who
was dressed in a green suit with shiny buttons, a green
tam-o-shanter-like cap, and gloves with a shiny object
at the tip of each finger, fled when the witness denied
his request. (Humanoids 56; Magonia)
Nov. 06, 1957 Boerne (Texas). A civilian source reported an oval
1800 object, about 5 m long, bright orange, similar to
glowing coals, hovering 4 m above ground. The wit-
ness went to call his family; the object had vanished
when he returned. Unidentified. (Atic)

Nov. 06, 1957 Baskatong Lake (Canada). 180 km north of Ottawa
2100 Jacques Jacobson and three of his friends saw a bright,
yellowish-white sphere hovering over a hilltop about
4 km away. From top and bottom issued light cones
that illuminated the countryside and the clouds.
Radio reception was blocked throughout the obser-
vation, except for a very powerful signal at one wave-
length, modulated, but not in Morse code. The object
rose slowly toward the south. (M 249)
Nov. 06, 1957 Montville (Ohio). Olden Moore, 28, a plasterer was
2330 driving home when he suddenly saw an object look-
ing like a bright meteor split into two pieces, one of
which went straight up. The other got larger while
its color changed from bright white to blue-green. It
hovered 60 m above a field and came to the ground
with a soft whirring sound, 150 m away. After observ-
ing it for 15 min, Moore then walked to the object,
which he found to be shaped like "a covered dish"
15 m in diameter, 5 m high, with a cone on top about
3 m high, surrounded by haze or fog, pulsating slowly.
Holes, footprints and radioactivity were found at the
site by Civil Defense Director Kenneth Locke. (M
Nov. 07, 1957 Meridian (Mississippi). Truck driver Malvin Stevens,
0725 48, was driving to Memphis when, about 23 km
northwest of Meridian, he saw an object which ap-
peared to have two propellers at either end and a
third one on top. Getting out of his truck, he saw
three little men about 1.30 m tall, in gray clothes,
with "pasty white faces" that seemed friendly and
willing to talk, but he was unable to understand their
"chattering." "I stood there for what seemed like an
eternity." They got back into the machine and it
took off straight up. There was no ignition inter-
ference. An 8-year-old girl from Honse independently
reported a round object crossing the sky toward the
south. (M 273; 115)
Nov. 08, 1957 Edinburgh (Scotland). Fourteen people, including
Mrs. Maty Home, reported to police that a disk-
shaped object followed their truck, dived toward it,
came within 20 m of them, then left toward the sea,
leaving a double vapor trail. (Round-up 217; 116)
Nov. 08, 1957 Sloanville (New York). A cigar-shaped object 70 m
0200 long was observed less than 7 m above ground. (M

Nov. 08, 1957 Holly (West Virginia). Hank Mollohan and eight
1430 other persons saw an elongated object, 12 m long,
with several portholes from which fire and smoke
appeared to be coming. It swung at low altitude and
dropped to the ground. People seemed to be moving
around it, but the witnesses were driven away by a
hard rain. (M 265)
Nov. 08, 1957 Waterloo (Iowa). Paul Rutledge saw an object 16 m
night long flying over his garage. The top part was bright,
and there were two figures visible inside. (M 266)
Nov. 09, 1957 Lake City (Missouri). A civilian driving his car home
0100 from work observed a hovering object 16 m long. His
car engine died as he neared the object's position,
and it started again only after the object's departure.
Nov. 10, 1957 Madison (Ohio). Mrs. Leita Kuhn observed a very
0125 large, lighted object 20 m above ground. It was so
brilliant that she had to close her eyes. It was over
10 m wide, 3 to 4 m thick, with a dome on top. The
witness had to consult a physician several days later
because of serious eye and skin irritation. (M 267;
Nov. 16, 1957 Bage City (Brazil). A blinding object, red and yellow,
2230 twice landed-first near the Jockey Club, then near
the Rural Exhibition. (Quincy)
Nov. 18, 1957 Maracaja (Brazil). Farmers Joao Ernani and Pedro
1030 Zilli heard a strange humming sound, then saw two
aluminum-colored disks 200 m away. Near them were
six mm of average height, slim build, dressed in "dark
gray suits glued to their bodies." The disks were
about 3.5 m wide, hovering 1 m above ground. They
rose with a sharp whistling sound, while coconut trees
below them bent double. Three more disks rose from
behind the trees, and all five flew toward the Atlantic.
(Humanoids 36)
Nov. 18, 1957 Aston (Great Britain). Mrs. Cynthia Appleton, 27,
1500 mother of two, saw the figure of a man appear near
her fireplace while a whistling sound was audible.
He was tall and fair, wore a tight-fitting plastic gar-
ment, and seemed to communicate with her through
telepathy, indicating he was looking for titanium and
was coming from a world of peace and harmony. Sud-
denly he disappeared. Mrs. Appleton had subsequent
contacts with similar entities. (Humanoids 4)
Nov. 22, 1957 Gesten (Denmark). A shop owner saw a pyramid-
shaped, luminous, transparent object fly fast across
the road. As it was above 250 m away, he clearly saw
two figures who looked like human beings, sitting
one behind the other aboard the craft. (Personal)
Nov. 23, 1957 Tonopah (Nevada). Four disk-shaped objects on the
0630 ground were observed for 20 min from a distance of
15 m. When the witness tried to come closer, they
took off with an unbearable humming sound. (Atic)
Nov. 25, 1957 Ugines (France). Two engineers were driving about
1430 200 m from the railroad crossing in Faverges when
they saw a nearly spherical object at ground level,
performing zig-zags on the road. They stopped and
were amazed as the object simply vanished, leaving
no trace. (Personal)
Dec., 1957 El Cajon (California). Edmund Rucker was awak-
night ened by a roaring noise and saw a strange object land
near his house. "Its windows were lighted, and I saw
strange-looking heads there." An opening became
visible and four creatures emerged. They had large
heads, dome-like foreheads, and bulging eyeballs.
They delivered a message to the witness in English,
stating that they had philanthropic and scientific
purposes. (FS Jul., 58)
Dec. 08, 1957 Woodward (Oklahoma). Between Woodward and
1750 Seiling, 12 km from the latter, an unknown flying
object allegedly took complete control of a car with
three passengers. The driver, an employee of an air-
craft company, had turned the heater, windshield
wiper, and radio on. He was nearing a hill in this
wooded area when a bright light appeared ahead. It
reminded the witness of the light from a mercury
lamp. As a crash seemed imminent, the car slowed
down by itself and stopped, as if the entire electrical
circuit had failed. Over the vehicle was a disk 16 m in
diameter with portholes around the periphery, emit-
ting a current of hot air and a high-pitched sound. It
had a dome on top and bottom. It rose as the car
started by itself. The car was a 1954 Dodge Coronet
without automatic transmission. The witness spent
four hours with two Kirtland AFB officers who told
him of similar observations. The case was never re-
ported to Blue Book. (Personal)
Dec. 11, 1957 Chestnut (Louisiana). Mary Louise Tobin, a school-
teacher, was driving on State Highway 1 when she saw
an object that she compared to the rising sun, in the
vicinity of a smoking car. The driver, an elderly lady,
came out with a child who seemed to have suffered
burns. The unknown object went away: The disabled
car did not catch on fire. (FS Jul., 58)
Dec. 11, 1957 Ellsworth (Wisconsin). Many cars stopped to observe
1600 a silent, reddish, glowing disk, about 15 m in diam-
eter, which flew 6 m above the ground at about 80
km/h. A small, windowless cabin was visible on the
underside of the object. (FS Jul., 58)
Dec. 18, 1957 Old Saybrook (Connecticut). Mary Stan was awak-
night ened by a brilliant light and saw through her east
window the fuselage of a craft that hovered in mid-
air. Aboard were two men, each with his right hand
raised, wearing yellowish jackets. A third man joined
the first two, then all lights went off inside the craft
while it glowed like brass. A spinning antennalike de-
vice was noted. A few minutes later it flew off. (FSR
Dec. 21, 1957 Ponte Poran (Brazil). Mrs. Mendonca and five other
1830 persons saw a light in the south, which later appeared
as two spherical objects coming closer to the witnesses
on an oscillating course. One of them hovered close
to the car while the other circled. They were shaped
like a sphere surrounded by a flat ring, and chased the
car for two hours over the deserted road. Estimated
diameter: 5 m. (APRO Mar., 59)
Dec. 30, 1957 Drakestown (New Jersey). George Chowanski, an
night auto mechanic was alerted by the barking of his dog
and heard a whirring sound similar to that of an elec-
tric shaver. A lighted object was observed by Chow-
anski and his wife as it came within 60 cm of the
ground. Two figures came out of the bottom of the
object, walked around a clearing, and one picked up
something before returning to the craft, which then
took off. Total duration: 2 min. (FS Oct., 58)
Jan., 1958 Depew (New York). A lady who was driving on the
0130 New York State Thruway during a snow storm
saw a large shape with a tall, luminous pole on the
side of the road. Her car stalled, and the lights went
off. Two figures, looking like animals or huge insects
were observed near the pole. They soon disappared,
and the object took off spinning. The witness was
then able to start her car. She noted that the snow at
the site had been melted and the grass was warm.
(Binder; Magonia)
Jan. 04, 1958 Stavanger (Norway). A woodcutter reported that he
saw an object land, and a very tall man with a tanned
face, wearing a helmet, stepped from the machine.
He went back in after a few minutes; the craft took
off "with a noise like a flock of birds." Air Force offi-
cers and policemen searched the snowcovered hill for
traces. (FSR 58, 2)
Jan. 07, 1958 Aston (Great Britain). Two figures again appeared to
Mrs. Appleton and spoke to her in English (see Case
443). (Humanoids 4)
Jan. 13, 1958 Farm Hill (Australia). Brian Crittendon, 21, was
2345 chased by a dome-shaped object that emitted a nar-
row light beam toward the ground. He was so fright-
ened that he drove home on a half-flat tire, followed
for 5 km by the object, which was about 50 m away
and 10 m above ground. It overtook his car at a speed
exceeding 100 km/h. Radio interference was noted,
but no noise. (UFO Bulletin Mar., 58)
Jan. 26, 1958 Shimada City (Japan). A very bright object landed
1600 before numerous chemical workers; they reported

Feb. 24, 1958 Conceicao Almeida (Brazil). Three witnesses, among
0305 them Dr. C. da Costa, decided to sleep in their car
when the engine stalled and could not be started
again. Then a very large, blue silvery object appeared
and came to ground level with a swinging motion.
was shaped like a sphere surrounded by a flat ring.
When they tried to approach it, the object maneu-
vered in a strange "aerial dance." (Lor. I 143)
Mar. 02, 1958 Tampa (Florida). A civilian source was said to have
1945 observed a balloon-shaped object land on the airfield
then take off slowly and hover at 250 m altitude be-
fore disappearing. It showed a bright light source.
Mar. 14, 1958 Healdsburg (California). Two persons, in their back-
0845 yard, saw a round object 1 m in diameter come from
the west and land 15 m away. It took off toward the
east, turned south, and was lost to sight. (Atic)
Mar. 19, 1958 Moscow (USSR). Near Moscow, a large, disk-shaped
object was seen on the ground. It rose in a spiral mo-
tion, then took off and was lost to sight. (Personal)
Apr., 1958 Maceio (Brazil). Near Paripueira, jeweler Wilson
0600 Lustosa and numerous fishermen saw an object hover-
ing 15 m above the sea, 40 m away. It was lens-shaped,
about 12 m thick, and showed portholes with a glow-
ing red light. Below the object the water seemed to be
"boiling" or attracted upward, while a soft, whirring
sound was heard. For one hour the object kept going
up and down. (SBEDV)
Apr. 15, 1958 Tabladitas (Argentina). Approximate date. In the
mountains, about 14 km from Abra Pampa, a lumi-
nous object 30 m in diameter came to ground level.
Apr. 17, 1958 Abaatu (Brazil). All night long, three hovering disks
1925 were seen by several witnesses in this area. A railroad
employee, Mr. Cavalheiro, and the station chief, J.
Machado, wired the Tupancireta police, and all saw
the objects coming to ground level about 1 km away.
At times they appeared to exchange signals. One of
the disks flew over the station itself, leaving a lumi-
nous trail and considerable heat. (LDLN)
May. 02, 1958 Bogota (Colombia). Eight people working in a wood
saw a green creature with scaly skin and very long
arms. The pointed nails of its long fingers nearly
touched the ground. (Dischi Volanti, by L. Bul-
May. 27, 1958 Boa del Tigre (Argentina). Remo dell'Armellina was
late driving a truck toward Santa Fe when he saw a figure,
3 m tall, blocking the road. He went toward it with an
iron bar but could not approach because of the stench
and the blinding phosphorescent light emanating
from it. It had very long arms, a scaly body, and wore
a flight coverall. The witness fainted; nothing was left
to be seen when he regained consciousness. (Perego;
Aug. 16, 1958 Leman Lake (Switzerland). A dozen people out on
1700 the lake in perfect weather saw a bright light coming
down. They stopped their boat as it came to hover
about 15 m above them. It was saucer-shaped, 10 m
in diameter, with a cabin showing several windows
on top. The outer disk below the cabin was spinning.
As it came down toward the water, a noticeable cur-
rent was created. No noise or occupants were noticed.
After several leaps in mid-air, the craft flew off at
"unbelievable" speed. (Personal)
Sep. 01, 1958 Laval (France). About 11 km before Laval, a busi-
2130 nessman coming from Paris suddenly saw a motion-
less object, 10 m above ground, to the left of the road,
150 m away. It was shaped like two cones with a com-
mon base and showed two rows of about ten openings
in the middle section. It seemed about 20 m wide,
metallic, with a light similar to that of a red traffic
light shining through the windows. The witness had
time to stop and maneuvered to get the object in his
headlight beams. Throughout the observation a
whistling sound such as that of a jet aircraft was heard.
The object rose very slowly, flew off faster climbing
out of sight. (119)
Sep. 21, 1958 Sheffield Lake (Ohio). A circular, flat object, 7 m in
0300 diameter, 2 m thick, hovering 1.5 m above ground,
and making a jetlike sound was seen from a house by
a civilian woman. Its color was that of aluminum; it
had a wobbling motion and emitted gray smoke be-
fore rising again and taking off. (Atic)
Oct. 27, 1958 Union Dale (Pennsylvania). An object resembling a
large gray cigar with an assembly tail flew at treetop
height, making a strong "swishing" sound. (Atic)
Oct. 31, 1958 Caledon East (Canada). A civilian reported an
1550 eliptical, aluminum-colored object at 2 km altitude,
coming down to 4 m, flying up and down by sudden
jumps, stopping at ground level less than 200 m away
for five min. A red light appeared at one end of the
object, which gradually took a fiery color, then ex-
ploded. The witness ran away. (Atic)
Nov., 1958 Braemar (Scotland). Two soldiers of the Territorial
0500 Army on an exercise near Ballater heard a "gurgling
noise" and saw two figures, over 2 m tall, dressed in
peculiar suits. As they fled, they heard a "swishing"
noise and saw a large disk flying at ground level, which
then swooped over their heads and away, pulsating
and leaving a sparkling trail. Witnesses were in a
state of shock. (Humanoids 5)
Nov. 17, 1958 Soviet Union, exact location not revealed. A luminous
2203 object, with an apparent diameter greater than that of
the full moon, was seen coming down from a high
altitude, hovering at tree height, then landing. It was
observed for two min. (Atic)
Nov. 23, 1958 Cojutepeque (San Salvador). An engineer, Julio M.
2335 Ladaleto, stopped when his car hit a can rolling on the
road, then observed an object about 35 m away. It
was shaped like a lamp shade with an upper trans-
parent sphere emitting a bluish, pulsating light, 12 m
diameter, 7 m high, resting on three half-spheres. An
occupant 2.5 m tall was photographed by the witness
as he crossed the road and appeared to inspect the
craft. He wore a blue coverall and luminescent heel-
less boots, and had a bald head. The observation
lasted 10 min, after which the object took off with a
whining sound, sparks and smoke. The following day,
before he had revaled anything about the case,
Ladeleto was contacted by strange "newsmen" who
appeared to know all the details of it. (Settimana
Incom. Sep. 16, 62)
Dec. 20, 1958 Hoganas (Sweden). Near Domsten, Hans Gustavs-
0255 son, 35, and Stig Rydberg, 30, saw something in the
woods and stopped their car to observe it. They found
a disk about 5 m wide set on a tripod. All of a sudden
they were attacked by four gray-colored creatures de-
scribed as "fluid," but one witness reached the car and
blew the horn for help. The beings fled and the craft
took off, emitting "paralyzing vibrations." (Lor. II 56)
Dec. 20, 1958 Clermont-Ferrand (France). Approximate date. A
1600 disk of 20 m diameter was observed and caused dam-
age on the ground. (Quincy)
Dec. 28, 1958 Portglenone (Ireland). A black flying object, 2 m
afternoon wide, cut a tree in two, 3 m above ground, and did
not stop. The tree in question is 70 cm wide and 13 m
tall. This event was observed by a farmer named
Bennett. (FSR 59, 2)
Jan. 1959 Stratford-on-Avon (Great Britain). Leonard Hewins,
1715 of Tredington, saw a fiery, round object come down
from the east and land 100 m away. While a blue haze
formed, three figures emerged from the object and
seemed to sit down with clumsy movements. The wit-
ness was unable to move until the craft and its occu-
pants took off swiftly, leaving a trail of stars. (FSR
67, 5)
Feb., 1959 Umiat (Alaska). 350 km east of Umiat, trappers saw
a red, disk-shaped object less than 4 km away, going
up and down, sometimes nearly touching the ground.
It circled and went away. (FSR 59, 3)
Feb. 28, 1959 Cedar City (Iowa). Private Gerry Irwin stopped his
car to investigate what he thought was a crashing
plane. He was later found unconscious. Sequels of the
incident (fainting, amnesia and his return to the site
in a trancelike state) are sometimes quoted as evi-
dence of psychologial experience correlated with the
observation of the luminous object. Irwin deserted,
and his subsequent whereabouts are unknown. (121;
Lorenzen; Magonia)
Mar., 1959 Kolobreg (Poland). On the Polish coast, not far from
Kolobreg, soldiers saw the sea become turbulent as a
triangular object, 4 m in size, emerged, circled the
barracks, and flew away at high speed. (122)
Mar. 13, 1959 Pumong (Australia). Near Claypans, 150 km north-
1410 east of Adelaide, Carl Towill, postmaster, and Percy
Briggs, mail carrier, saw a dome-shaped object take
off from a field 400 m away. It resembled a huge, bril-
liant circus tent, studded with lights that kept chang-
ing from red to blue. They approached within 200 m,
then saw it rise, hover, and shoot off at immense
speed toward the south. They had observed it for 10
min. Mr. Briggs was questioned by investigators from
Woomera Rocket range. (FSR 59,5)
Mar. 31, 1959 Port Elliot (Australia). Barry Neale was driving home
1330 to Goolwa when he saw on the ground a glowing,
reddish-orange object with a row of portholes. It il-
luminated the trees, was about 5 m wide. He got
within 300 m of it, and drove around the wooded area
in time to see it take off. No radioactivity was found
at the spot. (FSR 59,5)
Apr. 15, 1959 Svendborg (Denmark). Between Svendborg and Ny-
evening borg, Ove Christensen, coming home after work on
his bicycle, was stopped on the road by a disk-shaped

began chasing him, flying 6 m above him for 5 m.
The object was luminous and seemed made of glass.
(FSR 59, 3)
Apr. 29, 1959 Grassy Plains (Canada). Alex Gillis and Jerry Monk-
2230 man saw from a hilltop an egg-shaped object in the
middle of the road. It was about 5 m long, the top part
emitting a bright light. The object went away silently.
Fearing ridicule, the witnesses reported the incident
one month later. (FSR 59, 6)
May. 20, 1959 Tres Lomas (Argentina). Two hunters saw a disk-
1730 shaped object resting on the ground 150 m away. It
looked like an aluminum craft about 2.5 m high, with
a dome on top. Grass flattened. (Challenge 53)
Jun. 21, 1959 The Willows (South Africa). A civilian woman ob-
2000 served a saucer-shaped object hovering 5 m above
ground. It was bathed in an orange glow, similar to
that of a dying fire. It flew away horizontally and was
lost to sight behind a hill. (FSR 59, 6)
Jun. 26, 1959 Boianai (New Guinea). Many witnesses, among
1845 them Fr. W. B. Gill, head of a local mission, saw an
orange object that hovered in mid-air. Four engines
were visible on its "deck" and a beam of blue light
was emitted upward from it. The object did not come
to ground level, but its position above the ocean was
almost on a level with the observers standing on the
hill. (123; Anatomy 145)
Jul. 13, 1959 Blenheim (New Zealand). Mrs. Moreland saw a disk-
0530 shaped object as she was milking cows. It was about
10 m diameter, had two intense, green lights and two
rows of jets around the rim, emitting orange flames.
Inside a glass dome on top were two men dressed in
aluminumlike suits. The craft did not land, but took
off at great speed with a high-pitched sound. Heat
sensation. (124; Challenge 24)
Jul. 14, 1959 Prince of Wales Island (Australia). Hunters reported
the landing of a red object on the island. Other hunt-
ers saw a similar object near Karumba Lodge. (123)
Aug. 09, 1959 Sombrero (Tierra del Fuego). Mr. Uribe, a petroleum
1954 engineer, and two other witnesses had to stop when
they ran out of fuel; they observed a light swinging
like a pendulum, coming close to the ground. It ap-
pared as a large, vertical, egg-shaped object which
made a "whooshing" sound. Closest approach was
120 m. Estimated height: 2 m; width, 1.5 m. When
Uribe aimed a rifle at the object, it went out of sight
within seconds. (Lor. IlI 14)
Aug. 12, 1959 Brion (Spain). A 60-year-old farmer saw an egg-
shaped object come down at high speed and land in
a pasture near a river. Then it took off vertically and
flew away toward Santiago. Traces. Engine noise, not
similar to helicopter. (Personal)
Aug. 13, 1959 Freeport (Texas). A bright, flying object passed low
2130 over a car, whose engine stalled, and landed in a
wooded area. Six witnesses in two separate groups
observed the object, and the police were called. The
dense underbrush prevented investigation of the site.
(APRO Sep., 59)
Aug. 25, 1959 Werdehl-Eveking (Germany). Near Hagen, Lutz
1100 Holtmann went toward a bright object in a forest,
and fainted when he got close to it. When he re-
gained consciousness, he saw it take off silently and
vertically. It was round, had a tripod landing gear,
two rows of bright openings, and was about 30 m in
diameter. (Nachrichten Oct., 59)

level. It was bowl-shaped, as wide as the road, and
shadows that appeared to be moving could be seen.
(FSR 60, 3)
Spring, 1960 Syracuse (New York). An electronics engineer was
night fishing when he heard a shrill, whirring sound and
saw a round object, with a rotating light on top, land
on the shore. The sound gradually stopped, an open-
ing became visible, and two dwarfs with oversized
heads came out with a hose and pumped water from
the river. Later they appeared to play like children.
Their bodies glowed with lights of changing colors.
Apr. 05, 1960 Beira (Mozambique). An orange disk landed with a
hissing sound, then exploded, while four dwarfish
figures ran away into the brush. (FSR 60, 5; 126)
Apr. 18, 1960 Lacamp (Louisiana). Mr. Arnold saw a round object,
2100 fiery red in color, arriving at high speed from the

0915 four evenly spaced windowlike openings was observed
at ground level by an architect. (NICAP May., 60)
May. 14, 1960 Paracuru (Brazil). Raimondo dos Santos saw two
0400 craft land on hill near a farm called Capin Acu. He
went near them and saw several small beings, pale-
looking, making friendly gestures. He ran away. The
creatures wore blue uniforms and white helmets. The
previous day at 1900, over 100 witnesses had observed
a dark-gray, circular craft, 20 m in diameter with a
powerful light, maneuvering and hovering. (Human-
oids 37; LDLN 58)
May. 19, 1960 Siracusa (Italy). Salvatore Cianci, jeweler, and his

Oct., 1960 Yariguarenda Jungle (Argentina). New apparitions
of a monstrous "cyclops." (129)

Nov. 11, 1960 Warminster (Great Britain). Four witnesses, among
night them three military men, saw an object that seemed
about to land, then took off again toward the north,
leaving a trail of sparks and blinding them. (130; FSR
Nov. 13, 1960 La Londe (France). Remi Carbonnier, 45, was
0245 awakened by a green light illuminating his room. He
went to the window and saw a bright, round object,
6 m in diameter, resting on three legs on the railroad
tracks 300 m away. It was emitting orange flashes. A
dome on top of the object started spinning, the legs
disappeared, and the object rose vertically above the
trees, without noise. Less than 20 sec later, it had
cleared the hill and was lost to sight in the southwest.
The next day the witness went to the site and found
no trace, but his dog turned around and ran away,
Dec. 09, 1960 Carignan (France). A dog barking at a glowing object
2030 resting in a park. Three witnesses observed it from
separate locations. It appeared as an oval, luminous
craft, 4 m in diameter, inside which vague shadows
were seen. It took off toward the north. A circle of
yellowed grass was found at the site. (Ouranos 27)

Jan. 01, 1961 La Victoria (Venezuela). A government topographer,
Adolfo P. Pisani, was passed by a truck as he was
driving on the Andean Highway. A brilliant disk with
the appearance of blue steel swooped down very close
to the hood of the truck and then flew away. The truck
was pulled up nearly 1 m above the road and over-
turned in a sandbank. The driver escaped with minor
injuries. (Lor.I 250)
Jan. 22, 1961 Cestas-Gazinet (France). An electronics professor at
1830 Bordeaux University and three school teachers ob-
served an elongated, glowing, orange object. Inter-
ference with car ignition was noted. One witness was
said to have felt a slight indisposition and to have
heard or somehow perceived the word "ZEMU" re-
peated twice. (Ouranos 26)
Mar. 10, 1961 Bowna (Australia). F. Reynolds and his son were
2045 camping near the water. They observed an object on
the ground with four windows in it. There was a fire
nearby, and four figures could be seen between it and
the object. At 2130 it had disappeared. Witnesses in
Wodonga, West Albury, Wangaratta and Tallangatta
independently observed an unknown object in flight.
(Austr. FSR 5)
Apr. 18, 1961 Eagle River (Wisconsin). J. Simonton heard a whin-
1100 ing sound and saw an object, 10 m in diameter, 4 m
high, with exhaust pipes around the periphery, land
near his house. A door was opened and a man ap-
peared. About 1.50 m tall, he wore a black, turtle-neck
pullover with a white band at the belt, and black
trousers with a vertical white band along the side.
Two figures were visible inside the object. Simonton
filled a jug with water, returned it to the man, who
gave him three ordinary pancakes, and the craft took
off. (Atic; Magonia)
May. 03, 1961 Union Mills (Indiana). Approximate date. A hemi-
2200 spherical craft with portholes, resting on a road, took
off when a car came near it. Estimated diameter was
4 m, height 2.5 m, bearing "fluorescent lights." (Evi-
dence 139, 147)
Jun. 03, 1961 Savona (Italy). Off this town, four people in a boat
0635 were suddenly shaken by growing waves and saw the
sea swelling like an enormous bubble 1 km away. An
object emerged, hovering at 10 m altitude for a brief
time, its underside glowing, and it left obliquely at
high speed toward the northeast. Its shape was similar
to a cone resting on a disk. (Settimana Incom. Jan.
Jul. 03, 1961 Ryde (Great Britain). An object resembling a hover-
0015 craft, having five windows through which an orange
light was shining, hovered about 20 m above the trees.
It left suddenly at high speed. (FSR 61, 6)
Jul. 17, 1961 Las Vegas (Nevada). One mile north of Bonny
0200 Spring Ranch, on U.S. Highway 91, two civilians in a
car observed in the rear-view mirror a low-flying object
that overtook their car, followed by a rush of cold air.
It stopped, circled the vehicle, flew off and was lost
to sight behind the mountains, where it may have
landed. In the course of an exceptionally complete
investigation by military authorities, however, no evi-
dence of a landing was discovered. (Atic)
Aug. 12, 1961 Kansas City (Kansas). Two Drake University stu-
2100 dents saw a large object shaped like an oval with
"running boards" bearing a series of lights. It hovered
for about 4 min at tree-height, shot straight up,
climbed away toward the east, then disappeared from
view in five sec or so. (Atic)
Aug. 25, 1961 Toulouse (France). Approximate date. Five persons
observed a luminous, yellow sphere, 8 m in diameter,
flying about 10 m above the road. Horizontal and
vertical bands of darker tone gave the impression of
"windows." The object flew up very fast when the
car reached town. (LDLN)
Sep. 19, 1961 Indian Head (New Hampshire). Mr. and Mrs. Hill
2200 saw a lenticular object with a double row of portholes
and half-a-dozen dark figures working at control
panels inside, when they stopped to investigate a light
following their car. They became afraid and drove
away. A "beeping sound" enveloped the car, and they
felt a prickling sensation before losing consciousness.
When they came to, they were driving near Ashland.
A series of nightmares and medically controlled hyp-
nosis brought back what apparently was the memory

Sep. 30, 1961 La Porte (Indiana). Eight km south of La Porte, 16-
2200 year-old Dennis Bealor saw a large sphere of orange
light rise ahead of him on the road. He was so fright-
ened that he lost control of his bike and left the road.
(Hartle 158)
Dec. 21, 1961 Lafayette (Indiana). Jerry Hislope, 20, was driving
2145 to Kentland when he saw a glowing white object, 3 m
in diameter, 1 m thick, dive at him, flying 3 m above
the ground. He stopped to observe it, but the object
flew away. (APRO Mar., 62)
Jan. 08, 1962 Catamarca (Argentina). A truck driver and two other
night men observed two powerful lights lost sight of thern,
but later saw a craft on the ground 150 m to the side
of the road. It took off at high speed when illuminated
by the headlights. Farther away, two objects ma-
neuvered above the road leading to La Bajada. As the
police were driving to the scene, they saw one of the
craft on the ground near Loma Brava. (CODOVNI
Feb. 09, 1962 Aston Clinton (Great Britain). Mr. Wildam, of
0330 Luton, noticed that his car was gradually losing speed
as he approached a bright, oval thing hovering 10 m
above the road. The object was surrounded by a glow,
and left at high speed very suddenly. (FSR 62, 2)
Apr. 10, 1962 San Casciano (Italy). Mario Zuccula, 27, was walk-
evening ing home when he suddenly felt a current of cold air.
He was paralyzed with fear when he saw a white ob-
ject, 10 m in diameter, metallic in appearance which
hovered close to the ground. A metallic cylinder was
lowered from the craft, and two little men about 1.30
m tall, came out through a door lighted by a source
inside the cylinder. A low voice similar to the sound
of an electronic device told him they would return at
the end of the fourth moon, one hour before dawn,
with a message. The beings had their heads covered
with a hood. (FSR 62, 4)
Apr. 11, 1962 Sarouno (Italy). Between Saronno and Legnano,
evening Benazzi and three other witnesses saw a peculiar craft
fly above them and land on the road. It was intensely
luminous. (APRO Sep., 62)
Apr. 30, 1962 Mount Eba (Italy). Eugenio Siragusa, 43, claimed
night to have met two men of normal height, clad in diving
suits, with belts emitting intermittent yellow-green
blue light, who delivered to him a peace message in
Italian. The voice had a metallic tone. Also observed
was a very dazzling object, 15 m in diameter. (FSR

May., 1962 Jujuy (Argentina). Approximate date. Four people
0400 whose car had run out of gas, were waiting in a driz-
zling rain when a bright light, first thought to be from
a car, approached them. It turned out to be a low-
flying object that landed. It was round with a blink-
ing light, and stayed there about one hour before
taking off at high speed (APRO Jul., 63)
May. 12, 1962 Pampa Province (Argentina). V. and G. Tomasini
0410 and H. Zenobi saw an object on the ground 100 m
away from the road. It looked like a railroad car and
was illuminated. As they came close to it, the object
took off, crossed the road at low altitude, rose with a
flame, and separated into two sections that flew away
in different directions. It made a humming noise and
was seen on the ground for one min. Within a circle
60 m in radius, grass was burned, insects were carbon-
ized, and the ground was "petrified." Sample analysis
was done by the Puerto Belgrano Naval Base.
(SBEDV 30; 132; CODOVNI 1962)
May. 13, 1962 Uncativo (Argentina). Dozens of witnesses in Un-
0400 cativo, Cordoba, Carranza, and Los Molinos Dam
observed a very luminous, elongated object with a
bright trail. Soon thereafter, fog filled a wooded sec-
tion near Uncativo, and a landed object resembling
a small house was observed. (133; CODOVNI 1962)
May. 22, 1962 Winifreda (Argentina). A woman was hospitalized
after her observation of a strange object that landed,
and of the "ugly" giant beings who emerged from it.
Approximate date. (135)
Jun. 16, 1962 Prince of Wales Island (Australia). Four persons
from Thursday Island, among them E. Thorpe, were
climbing a hill when they observed a silvery object on
a nearby hillside, less than 2 km away. It could not be
located again when they reached the other side of
the hill. (FSR 62,5)
Jun. 26, 1962 Verona (Italy). For about one hour, 20-year-old
evening Roberto Poregozzo, his mother, Maria, and his 25-
year-old sister, Luisa, observed a silvery disk, the ap-
parent diameter of the moon, maneuvering in the sky
near Santa Anastasia church. They finally went home.
About 0300, one of them was awakened by a feeling
of intense cold and perceived a greenish light in the
room. In the window a sharply defined human shape,
delineating a semi-transparent body, was visible. The
apparition had a huge bald head. The witness
screamed, awakening the two others, and they saw
the apparition shrink and vanish "like a TV image
when one turns off the set." (FSR 63, 2)
Jul. 30, 1962 Pasnembi (Brazil). A man driving near Pasnembi
stopped when his engine failed and observed a
cylindrial object, described as "a bottle with two
necks," about 40 m long, 15 m high, which had landed
on the road. Two men (one at either end of the craft),
appeared to be changing some luminous signals. This
lasted 10 min and the craft took off at high speed. In
Alta, a number of people reported a bright object
moving at high altitude. (136; FSR 62, 6)
Jul. 30, 1962 Bajeola Grande (Argentina). Roberto Mievres, 17,
was riding his motorcycle when a tall being, with a
head like a watermelon and three eyes, appeared as
the engine stalled. The apparition snatched the boy's
scarf, but he ran away and came back with a group of
people, who found the scarf on the ground, discovered
some traces and observed an unknown craft flying
away. (CODOVNI 1962)
Aug. 02, 1962 Camba Punat Airport (Argentina). Luis Harvey, air-
port manager, and his staff thought that an un-
announced aircraft was about to land, as they saw a
luminous object circling at high speed. It came down
to hover about 1 m above the runway for some four
min. It was spherical, spinning, and emitted flashes
of blue, green and orange. When approached, it took
off at very high speed. (FSR 64, 4)
Aug. 17, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Rivalino da Silva, a diamond
evening prospector, told his associates that he had seen two
strange dwarfs digging a hole near his house. They
ran away as he came near them, and moments later
an object took off from behind the bushes. It was
shaped like a hat and surrounded with a red glow.
(APRO Sep.,62)
Aug. 19, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Raimundo, the son of Rivalino
night da Silva (see previous case), was awakened by the
sound of steps and saw "a weird shadow" in the room.
It was small and not human in shape. Voices were
heard saying, "This one looks like Rivalino," and later
that they would kill him. The family stayed on the
alert all night. (APRO Sep., 62)
Aug. 20, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Raimundo da Silva (see previ-
ous cases) testified before the police that while work-
ing in a field, he saw two spherical objects hovering
2 m above ground, a few meters from the house. One
was black with an antenna-like protrusion and a small
tail; the other was black and white. Both emitted a
humming sound and a flickering fire through an open-
ing. The boy's father warned him to stay away as
Rivalino walked toward the objects, praying. When
he was 2 m away, the two spheres merged into one,
raising dust from the ground and spreading a yellow
mist that enveloped the man. The boy ran after his
father, noting that the cloud had "an acrid smell."
As it dissolved, everything had vanished. Police in-
vestigation, headed by Lieutenant Lisboa, failed to
reveal any clue. Many terrified people left the area.
(APRO Sep., 62)
Sep., 1962 Orland (California). A. T. Gray, a dairy rancher,
2145 thought some lights in a field were those of a car.
When coming nearer, he realized the object was ob-
long with blunt edges and hovered about 7 m above
the ground, making no noise. When Gray was 50 m
away, the object came toward him, rose, and took off
toward the southwest. (APRO Jul., 63)
Sep. 05, 1962 Mount Manfre (Italy). Second observation by Mr.
night Siragusa (Case 531), who saw two figures over 2.10 m
tall. The light from their belts prevented him from
seeing them in detail. A large, spinning object, 25 m
wide, top-shaped, hovered nearby. "From the under
part, a metallic cylinder over 3 m long reached down
almost to touch the road, with a small door, a sort of
lift." (FSR 62, 6)
Sep. 13, 1962 Overfield (Great Britain). Myra Jones was driving
2320 between Overfield and Norris Hill when she saw a
luminous, gray object, larger than a car with a dome
on top. It was flying at the altitude of the Phone
poles, slowly spinning. Dark spots were visible on the
underside. It nearly touched the car, then gave a
whistling sound and flew away. (137; FSR 62, 6)
Sep. 15, 1962 Oradell (New Jersey). Two bright disks were first seen
1700 at 1700, then were seen again at 1800, at the state
line. Two witnesses saw one round object with a fin
on top and another under it at 1950, and reported
that it was going down toward the Oradell reservoir.
Three young men saw and heard the object as it
touched the water. Another witness called police. The
luminous object took off a few minutes later. Official
investigation described it as bright, surrounded with a
glow, the apparent size of a small plane 1 km away. It
left toward the south. (Atic)
Sep. 18, 1962 Barcelos (Brazil). Three men working in a rubber
plantation saw a large, disk-shaped object hover above
the river. It emitted sparks, was of silvery color, and
very brilliant. It eventually rose straight up at high
speed. Disappearance of cattle was noticed in the area
during that period and blamed on the same cause.
(APRO Jan., 63)

object landed near the road. She watched it for 40
min, and reported seeing a man wearing a helmet and
gas mask in the vicinity of the object. (FSR 63, 4)
Nov., 1962 Var (France). A garage owner was driving through a
evening rainstorm when he suddenly saw a group of figures
80 m away. He slowed down as they went away
jerkily, and observed that they were bizarre, birdlike
creatures. As they rushed toward the car, he drove past
them in terror and saw them going back toward a
luminous, blue object hovering in a field. They en-
tered it as if "sucked into it," and a dull sound was
heard before the object flew off. (FSR 68, 6)
Dec. 09, 1962 Bologna (Italy). Antonio Candau saw a circular ob-
2200 ject land in Cadivilla, 9 m away from him. It was
about 5.5 m m diameter, and two men emerged from
it, approaching within 2 m, and spoke incompre-
hensible words. They wore yellow coveralls and a wide
belt. Noting that the witness was afraid, one of them
made a reassuring gesture with his hand, and the craft
departed with a strange sound. (Settimana Incom.
Dec. 30, 62)
Dec. 11, 1962 Chumbicha (Argentina). G. L. Colodrero and the di-
dawn rector of the Cordoba Historial Museum were driv-
ing from Catamarca to Cordoba when, 7 km away

ground of a mountain slope. They were bright and
spherical, rose straight up and flew away with a very
bright trail. (CODOVNI 1962)
Dec. 17, 1962 Milan (Italy). Francesco Rizzi, night watchman, was
dawn crossing the factory yard when he heard a whistling
sound and observed an object hovering 1 m above
ground. It was a silvery disk, about 5 m in diameter,
with lighted windows. The noise stopped, a door be-
came visible, and a small being appeared and made a
gesture. A second figure was also seen. The craft took
off with a puff of white smoke and a whistling sound.
Dec. 19, 1962 Verbania (Italy). Three sailors on a ship observed
two gray, helmet-shaped objects hovering 1 km away
at 20 m altitude above Lake Major. Diameter: about

gaining height with an undulating movement. It was
soon joined by the second object, and both disap-
pered together at the horizon. (139)
Dec. 21, 1962 Buenos Aires Airport (Argentina). A large, fiery disk
0215 was observed on the runway by Horado Alora and

1900 ject on the ground in a deserted city park. Shape: a
dome upon a cylinder, bearing a series of round
apertures and surrounded by a thick, roundish ring,
set on a tripod landing gear supporting the base of
the cylinder 1 m above the ground. Diameter: 5 m.
Suddenly the ring started spinning rapidly, and a gust
of air was felt as the craft rose a few m above ground,
then disappeared in a split second. (142)
Jan. 11, 1963 San Pietro (Italy). A 43-year-old farmer was awakened
2300 by restless animals and went out to calm them. Fifteen
min later he saw an object land in a small square in
the village, went toward it, was "paralyzed" when
10 m away. Two min later the craft, 4.5 m long, 1.5
m high, with a translucent upper dome showing two
dark, moving figures, ascended in the direction of
Brindisi, emitted a vertical beam of green light. (143)
Jan. 28, 1963 Shilton (Great Britain). Mary Sharp and Mrs. E. L.

Feb. 15, 1963 Willow Grove (Australia). A civilian observed an
0710 object arriving from the east. It stopped at 15 m alti-
tude over his farmhouse. The object made a swishing
sound, and measured about 8 m in diameter, 3 m in
height. The underside was spinning in a counter-
clockwise direction, had a blue color and no light. It
took off faster than a jet, after hovering about five sec.
The witness suffered from a strong headache all day.
Feb. 20, 1963 Lecce (Italy). A young man saw from a window ,a
1730 slowly spinning object, almost stationary, 500 m away.
It appeared as a disk having a central upper dome,
with a total diameter of 3 m. The object had a brilliant
yellow red halo, but its dome was much more brilliant.
The witness observed it through binoculars, reported
seeing a "particle" leave the object, after which it
stopped spinning, gained altitude with a vertical shift-
ing, and left toward the northeast. (144)

2230 ing when he heard a high-pitched whine coming from
the east and saw an object come in his direction and
land 15 m away, scattering sand. It was at least 30 m
in diameter, and was shaped like two plates glued
together. Through several oval portholes he could see
light inside. A man with a fair complexion, wearing a
metallic helmet, looked at the witness. He wore a
sky-blue, one-piece coverall with no visible buttons
or fasteners, and gloves made of shiny mesh. Warm
air was felt as the craft took off about six min later,
and radio interference was noted. (FSR 63, 5)

then followed them for part of their trip. (LDLN 71)
May. 20, 1963 Glencoe (Australia). A 17-year-old witness, who
evening wishes anonymity for fear of ridicule, saw what he
first thought was a bulldozer by the side of the road.
He came within 20 m of it, then was blinded by a
strong light as his car suddenly stopped. The object

level. Through an opening they observed "several rows
of people inside" and a thin, 3 m tall being, whho
glided down to the ground along two vertical beams
of light. He walked with a strange, swinging motion,
then sat down. He wore a transparent helmet, had
one eye in the middle of his forehead, wore high boots
that left a triangular imprint, and carried a box emit-
ting flashes. He made a threatening gesture and flew
up to the sphere, which left. The chlldren somehow
became convinced that the being was "good" and
would return. (Humanoids 37; Magonia)
Sep. 19, 1963 Saskatoon (Canada). Four children saw a bright oval
2000 object hover in a field and drop something. Approach-
ing the site, they were confronted with a 3 m tall man,

hands and made unintelligible sounds. The children
fled in panic, and one girl was admitted to the hos-
pital in shock. (Personal)
Oct. 1963 Whidbey Island (Washington). A middle-aged
0900 woman, who had seen a strange craft hovering near
her house the previous Jul., observed a gray-colored
object, 3.5 m long, hovering less than 2 m above
ground. Through the transparent front part she could
see three figures. Suddenly one of the occupants was
standing on the grass. He was clothed in "asbestos-
textured coveralls" and neither the face, nor the
hands, nor the feet was visible. When she asked,
"What do you want?" the answer, in English, was:
"One of our party knows you; we will return." The
object then decreased in size, tilted, partially sank
into the ground, grew to its previous size, and de-
parted to the east, producing steam, a flash, and a
noise. (FSR 64, 6)

Jul. 28, 1964 Lake Chelan (Washington). A former Navy pilot
2230 and another man, both regarded as trustworthy, were
at work in a field when they saw an intense light,
cone-shaped, emitted from the ground. A similar light
was observed in the sky when the one on ground was
turned off, then the reverse took place. A round,
aluminum-looking object, about 10 m in diameter,
with one red and one white light, then appeared and
descended to ground level with a strong whistling
sound similar to a small jet. Piercing and high-pitched
voices similar to those of children playing were heard.
After 40 min the craft took off. Before it did so, a jet
aircraft flying at low altitude circled its position. On
Jul. 31 and August 1, the densely wooded area was
explored from a helicopter and on foot by Sheriff
Nickell and a U.S. Air Force officer, but nothing was
found. (Atic)

2200 his way in the mountains, observed approaching lights
that seemed to land. From a vantage point in a tree,
he saw a dome-shaped object at ground level, about
500 m away. Several creatures, one of them a robot-
like figure with "eyes" about 10 cm in diameter, came
near, apparently trying to dislodge the witness from
his tree. The creatures appeared to fear the light from
flaming objects thrown at them. The witness fell
asleep after an exhausting series of attempts to keep
the creatures away. At dawn there was nothing to
be seen. (Atic; Magonia)
Sep. 11, 1964 Ulysses (Oklahoma). Karen Campbell was scared by

and J. Quinn, observed an object flying 17 m above
the ground. It was shaped like two plates glued to-
gether, with two rows of intense lights, and a turret
with a green light on top. When an opening became
visible, the witnesses thought the thing was about to
land, and they fled. (Spaceview)
Jan. 12, 1965 Blaine Air Force Base (Washington). A member of a
night federal agency, who was driving toward the base, saw

The smaller one landed, a door opened, and three
pilots emerged. They looked human, but had a red-
dish-orange skin and staring eyes. One of them had
"a long finger on his left hand." Their clothes were
the same color as the craft, whose open door showed
a strange light inside. The object was so highly pol-
ished that "I would bet on a clear day you could not
see it at five thousand feet." The occupants spoke
sounds that were not understood and reentered the
object. The door outline could not be seen when it
was closed. (Personal)
Jan. 23, 1965 Williamsburg (Virginia). A 31-year-old man driving
0840 a '64 Cadillac was at the intersection of U.S. Highway

ical, twice as wide as it was high, and seemed built
from metal sections over one square m each. It
showed four rows of square windows, 70 cm wide.
Estimated diameter: 25 m. A yellow light shone
through the windows, and the object made a sound
of a transformer and wind. Flynn got within 2 m of
it and made a gesture. A beam of light from the
underside of the object struck him between the eyes
and he lost consciousness for 24 hours. He had lost
vision in the right eye, saw poorly with the left, went
to a doctor in Fort Myers, and spent five days in the
hospital. (Fate Sep.,65)
Apr., 1965 Monte Grande (Argentina). Felipe Martinez, 37,

0800 object land near her house while she was working in
her kitchen. It was shaped like a disk, showed port-
holes and a cylinder about 1 m high, with a sliding
door from which a small creature, about 1 m tall,
emerged and jumped to the ground. Its face was not
clearly visible but it had pointed ears, a sort of tail,
and was linked to the main object by a cable. It wore
white clothing, appeared to pick up something from
the ground, and reentered the cylinder, which then
slid up into the larger white disk. The outside rim
started spinning in a counterclockwise motion with
a soft whistling sound and the object rose straight
up, out of view. Estimated diameter of the disk: 7m.
Apr. 26, 1965 New London (Minnesota). Gary X., 9, saw an object
1700 which came down silently and hovered at ground

2030 object shaped like two saucers glued together come
to ground level several times on the farm of William
Butcher. It was chromelike, measured about 16 m in
diameter, took off with green and yellow flames, and
illuminated the clouds when it flew into them. Capt.
James Dorsey and four technicians from Niagara

concluding, however, that the witnesses were not
lying. (Personal)
Aug. 09, 1965 Grand Forks (North Dakota). Three girls driving a
2330 car observed what they first thought was the rising
moon. It was a circular, pale-yellow object, with a
silhouette moving inside the glow. There were five
other witnesses one of whom stated that as he ap-

bang. (FSR 66, 2)
Aug. 13, 1965 Baden (Pennsylvania). A 37-year-old civilian had just
put his car in the garage when he saw an object about
100 m in diameter, shaped like a disk, which flew in
front of the moon in a northerly direction at about
80 km/h. It was surrounded with orange lights that
weakened as a blue source came on, very intense for
about 3 sec then all lights disappeared as the object
was about 700 m away. This was followed by a sort
of "shock-wave" effect, and tree leaves were shaken.
The witness entered his house and called the Air
Force. Twenty minutes later his vision became hazy
and his eyes were painful. He gradually lost vision in
both eyes, and his entire body was "sunburned." Med-
ical examination compared the symptoms to ultra-
violet exposure. His vision came back gradually over
a period of several days. (Atic)

Sep. 03, 1965 Damon (Texas). Two Angleton sheriffs, McCoy and
evening Robert Goode saw from their car a huge object 70 m
long, 15 m high, with a bright, violet light at one end
and a pale-blue light at the other. They stopped to
watch it and saw the craft fly within 30 m, casting a
huge shadow when it intercepted the moonlight.
They felt a heat wave and drove away in fear, but
returned to the site a second time, only to turn
around when they found the object was still there.
Goode had been bitten by an animal before the sight-
ing, and his left index finger swelled and bled freely.
After exposure to the light from the object, the pain
was gone, and the wound cured unnaturally. Later
that evening, two men found him at a restaurant and
described the object in detail, adding he should keep
future encounters to himself. (NICAP Aug.,65)

it, the craft left at great speed toward the west. It had
six openings, 10 cm in diameter, and made a "turbine"
noise so loud that the witness had to put his hands
over his ears. After going away for a few meters, it
vanished suddenly. Rain was falling throughout the
observation, which lasted four min. (Atic)
Apr. 05, 1966 Wycheproof (Australia). R. Sullivan was driving to-

oversized heads, appeared bright and "transparent."
Their eyes were slanted, their shoulders very broad.
They wore no apparent weapon, but their belts were
very wide and emitted light rays. They did not touch
anything without first illuminating it with these
beams. They went back aboard their craft "as if car-
ried by the light." (Personal)

car, which was pulled and rocked when the object
took off. Physiological effects (perspiration and peel-
ing skin) were reported after 12 hours. The object
gave off a sound resembling an electric motor, and
emitted sparks. (NICAP May., 67)

0200 hospital employee, was driving to Salt Lake City when
he heard a noise similar to that of a truck, but saw
nothing. Then a yellow light became visible to the
left, and thinking that it was a jet plane about to
crash, he got out and saw it stop 30 m away at 30 m
altitude. It was shaped like an inverted bowl with a
dome on top and looked metallic. The witness became
afraid and emptied his .25 Beretta in the direction of
the craft. He heard the bullets hit metal and the
object took off at great speed. When he told his story
at a nearby service station, the attendant replied that
about 20 reports had been made in the Saint George
area recently. (180)

showing a purple light. A high-pitched sound and an
odor resembling a burning electrical circuit were
noted. Approaching, the witness heard voices, and
upon touching the craft, he burned his rubber-coated
glove, and was "blown out" by hot air when the sub-
ject started spinning. The witness felt dizzy, suffered
minor face burns, second and third degree burns on
his chest, vomited frequently for 4 days, and lost over
10 kg. Diameter of craft, 11 m; height, 3 m, with a

to respond. An object which illuminated the whole
area was seen resting in a woods. (Lor. III 17)
Aug. 03, 1967 Caracas (Venezuela). Two persons saw a luminous,
2330 whitish object, 10 m in diameter, resembling two
plates glued together. The whole yard was illuminated
and a humming sound was heard. A door opened in
the base of the craft, and something similar to a light
bulb lowered itself to ground level. This, too, had an
opening, from which stepped a small man in silvery,
luminous clothes, his head surrounded with vapor. He
was about 5 m away from the witnesses, and was

all. Andrade pointed his machine gun at the creature,
but a voice from a hovering disk said in Spanish that
he should not harm the creature. The dwarf then tried

it was "very distant and much larger than the Earth,
and with many advantages for Earthlings." When
Andrade declined, the creature flew back into the
object, which left. (Lor. III 82)
