DIEHLSTADT (MISSOURI : USA)
High school senior Ronnie Burton was driving home to Diehlstadt on Hw 77 when he spotted, just beyond the next rise ,a large dark shape hanging above the road, covering all the lanes and part of the shoulder. He thought it might have been a van which had overturned and so slowed down and brightened his lights. He then saw that it was an object shaped like two soup plates rim to rim. He decided to reverse rather than risk squeezing past it. As he did so bright lights like magnesium flashes came from the top and bottom of this object, and seemed to spread over it, until the light was too intense for Ronnie to look at. :The thing rose silently to the height of a telephone pole, tilted and then disappeared. Ronnie’ car motor was still running but at some point his radio had gone off. He drove home and woke his father. They both returned to the spot to see that the grass on road shoulder had been depressed as if by a heavy object. An elderly lady who lived nearby volunteered that she had not only seen this object on this occasion, but seen similar several times before.

From the tunnel came a tall man wearing a greenish jacket and trousers and black knee length boots. He had a thick black belt. His eyes were huge, his brown hair was close cropped, his ears large and his mouth lipless. His skin colour was tanned. She then found herself being dragged down the tunnel, which appeared now to be brilliantly illuminated from an unknown source, by two beings, one on either side, into a brilliantly lit cold room, which had a strange odour. In it was a high narrow table with white sheets. She remembered nothing more until she woke next morning with heavy painful arms. She had other, later, anomalous experiences.

EDINA (MISSOURI : USA)
Mrs Adeline Davis, who was tending her sick daughter and sleeping only fitfully, suddenly awoke and sat up looking out of the widow, though she could hear no sound, and saw an unusual looking object in which there was an occupant. He was wearing dark clothing with a cap like an army fatigue cap, a dark jacket with an opening down the front and a small upright collar with scalloped edges, and a scarf. He had slanted, wide spaced, eyes with fuzzy indefinite pupils. She tried several tests to check if she was awake, including going to bathe her face. When she returned the object and its occupant were still there, about 2m from her window, which was 2m above the ground. The being seemed to be working on something below the window, but then looked up. Apparently seeing the witness, he looked surprised and his mouth dropped open. He looked at her for a brief while then carried on with his work. After a while he looked up again and seemed to try and reach for something first with one hand then the other. He then looked at Adeline again and as he did so the craft seemed to back away from the house. As it did so Adeline could see a white beam coming from its base, projecting downwards, illuminating a small cedar tree at one point. After the object had retreated about 3-3.5m, it stopped, the white light went out and the object turned slightly to the northeast. She now had a clear picture of the object, which was army green in colour with a row of blue tinted windows on the side which had originally faced her, but with a shield, the same colour as the object itself, blocking the windows on the other side. From the top edge of the window framing a dark vertical mark was visible. Adeline again went to bathe her face, and when she returned she saw that the leg on the far side of the object was about 1m above the ground, that on the near side 1.5m. The object moved slowly to the north east at very low altitude disappearing behind the corner of the house. She now noticed that the electric furnace fan had stopped, though it re-started a couple of minutes later. The next morning she found the electric clocks were 20 minutes slow. At the time she had the impression that the occupant was friendly and would not hurt her, next day, though, she felt unusually nervous.

A sort of grey balloon, 1.2m diameter, with a flat bottom suddenly appeared only 1m away and the couple fled in terror. They then had a feeling of coming to and found themselves up to their knees in the sea, without any memory of how they got there.

Dr and Mrs White were driving across the downs towards Niton on a dark night, moonlit but cloudy, when in the deserted fields were covered with bobbing lights. As they descended a hill in the road, they saw fields to the right so covered with these lights that they looked an illuminated city. What they knew to be a cart track now appeared to an illuminated street with buildings giving off red, white and green lights. When they reached the track, they found it as dark and unmade as usual. When they reached a local inn they found it brilliantly lit. A group of figures carrying torches were running back and forth across the road, including a very tall man wearing a leather jerkin. As the White’s approached within 20m of the inn, the scene vanished and the area plunged into darkness. They quickly drove on. On the reverse journey, a few hours later, all was normal.

CHILDERS (QUEENSLAND : AUSTRALIA)
A migrant repair man, George Vas, his wife Milanka and daughters Olga (14) and Maria (13) were asleep in their caravan on a roadside north of Childers, when they were awoken by the frantic barking of their dog. They heard a sound like the humming of bees, only much louder, and Maria drew their attention to an object above the trees. They saw a craft shaped like a Mexican hat, about 25m diameter, giving off a violent glow which mingled with other, less prominent, colours to give a polarised effect. Three human shaped beings, but three times as large as normal people, with bulky arms and legs and “generally shapeless bodies” descended from this craft in another small craft of the same shape. They gave off a violet-yellow glow. The beings did not seem concerned that they were being watched and began collecting plants and sugar cane from a patch at the edge of the road. These samples were sucked up through a transparent funnel into the larger object. At one point one of the beings seemed to be coming towards them and George called out to the girls to run, but the being turned away after collecting a few stones. After about 10 minutes the beings re-entered the craft which took off quickly, straight up. As object took off, the witnesses’ hair stood on end as if affected by static electricity. Even after the object had gone a faint humming sound could still b heard. George claimed to have seen “spacemen” on two previous occasions, as a child in Romania in 1918 and near Belgrade in 1946.

Keith Lupton, a NASA test facility mechanic at Langley Air Field was asleep with his wife when he was suddenly awoken by a whirring sound, like a transformer malfunctioning, getting softer and then louder again. Mrs Lupton, half asleep, said she also heard the noise. Looking through the blinds of his window, Keith saw an elliptical or cigar shaped object with blunt ends, which he estimated to be 9m wide, 30m long and at an altitude of 30-45m, travelling at 40kph. The thing was ringed with windows, though which he could see steady amber coloured lights. One window light in the right rear blinked a steady pulse, which Keith thought was synchronised with the beat of the sound. The widows which ringed the underside were rectangular, translucent and separated by dividers and appeared to be surrounded by a haze. The central section was solid, silvery and metallic. The object moved in an undulating manner from SSE to NNW, approaching within 30m. It tilted and made a gentle left turn. It had gone after 90-120 seconds; about 3 minutes after Keith first heard the noise. :Keith had called out to his wife to ask if she saw the object, but she had not replied. Ass Keith watched the object he had a feeling of being hypnotised and experienced a tingling in his nerves. Aster the object had left; the couple could still hear the sound over their phone. This was later denied. Keith became obsessed with finding other witnesses and eventually traced people who had heard s pulsating hum and explosion. He reported the matter to the Air Force.

They became worried that might crash into a nearby housing development. The pattern of lights then shifted and began to approach their car. It moves over the treetops and dropped out of sight. When they turned and came into a clearing, the sisters a huge “cement grey” object shaped like a sting ray, with a rough surface. There were 6 lights on the thing, three on each side, arranged red, green, white in correspondence, though they couldn’t remember the order. As the sisters sat looking at the thing, it passed over the back of their car at low altitude. They heard a muffled roar as it did so. They estimated that it could have been up to 60-120m wide.

A woman who did not wish her name to be used was driving her husband from hospital after he had received treatment for an industrial injury. They were within 400m of their home when they became aware of a bright light to the right of their car at 30 degrees elevation. :The thing was a horizontal cone, flying broad end first, which came out of the northeast to within 400m of the car, at treetop height. It then righted itself, giving the appearance of a triangle with the point up. It appeared to be 2 or 3 stories tall, showing horizontal stripes on the body. On its base was a lattice like affair, with jewel like red and white lights. The contraption lit up the ground below, spun on its axis two or three times, flashing an extremely bright light. Then a strip peeled back and the thing tilted to reveal its underside, in which the witness could see a dim luminous opening, giving a view of a spongey interior. At this point her car engine and lights died and the vehicle stopped completely and then the front of the car rose up off the ground. The woman’s screams woke her sleeping husband and he also tried to start the car without success. The lighted object then moved off towards the northwest and as it left the area the car came down slowly but made a bump when it hit the road. :She was then able to re-start the car. The couple’s landlord’s wife who lived nearby noticed an unusual light at this time.

As the thing descended it gave out a dazzling light that prevented the witness from making out its shape. When the thing landed its luminosity faded until there were only a number of small yellow lights visible. These lights themselves then vanished and a brilliant searchlight came on and started to revolve. This was seen for 15 minutes after which it went out. After the light had landed it was seen by the filling station owner and his brother, along with the passengers in a number of cars which had pulled up to see what was happening. The filling station owner said that the object was about 3m above the ground, that the beam was 100m long and it rotated first clockwise and then anti-clockwise, taking 1-2 seconds to perform each rotation. His brother, who owned the restaurant phoned for the police and a squad car arrived before the light went out. No traces were found.

PIRASSUNUNGA (SAO PAULO : BRAZIL)
Residents of this suburb of Pinheiro saw an object moving up and down at low altitude. Their excited yelling awoke Tiago Machado, a 19 year old fruit seller, who saw something like a parachute on the hill in the ground of the Zootecnica. Grabbing his binoculars, he went up the hill, collecting two guards, Chico Hansen and Dita Joanna. These two searched the lower slope while Tiago went up the hill. He got to within 10m of a silvery metallic disk. It was 4m in diameter, stood on a tripod and had a dome on top. It was about 1.5m thick, with its rim standing about 30cm above the ground. On the top of the dome was a door and further down were two windows. As Tiago lifted his binoculars to get a better look, the door hinged open, and two men floated out down to the ground. Two other men were visible inside the craft. The two men who had got out walked to within 3-4m of Tiago and began to speak, low and rapidly in an unintelligible language, and made signs of coming from the sky in a spinning motion. When Tiago lit a cigarette and blew out the smoke, the beings began to laugh. Tiago tossed them the cigarette package, at which one of the beings leant slowly sideways, and when his hand came within 20cm of the package, it flew up into his hand. When he brought his hand down to his thigh the package disappeared. During this time Tiago was able to take in that the beings were about 1.45m tall, dressed in tight silvery clothes, with no buttons on the suite, but with a row of tiny silver ones on each boot, from the middle toe to the ankle. They had helmets with antennae on top, and glass visors through which Tiago could see their yellow faces, slanting eyes, long thin noses and thin lips. One eye was slightly below the other and had a cicatrix on each cheek and black teeth. From the helmets came a kind of tube through which they seemed to speak. Thinking that they might want him to go with them, Tiago put down his binoculars as a marker, but when he did so the beings seemed to become anxious, so he picked them up again. Just then Ditto called out to him, whereupon the beings began to back away, never once turning their backs on him, jumped on the rim and eased in through the door. The last one waited by the door and took out a kind of weapon which fired a blue flame which floated towards Tiago. When it hit him he became paralysed and felt an unbearable pain in his leg, which caused him to faint. His companions picked him up and took him to a neighbour’s house, where a large red wheal was found on his leg. When the paralysis wore off he felt dehydrated but otherwise normal. Three marks, 12cm diameter, 5cm deep were found at the site, forming an equilateral triangle, sides 63cm apart. Grass in the area was swivled round.

On investigating he saw that about 200m away, an object 5m high, 4m diameter was descending towards the ground. It landed on a tripod, 1.5m high, and from the thing came three beings 1.6m tall, dressed in aluminium like one piece suits, which stood for three minutes on a sort of balustrade around the object. One of these beings pointed a beam of light from a tube at the henhouse; the second was examining some sort of apparatus and the third holding a long rod. Jose retreated back to his house, but as he opened the door, it creaked at which the strange object took off. Jose saw the object come to ground again about one and then two months after the original incident.

ITAPERUNA (RIO DE JANEIRO : BRAZIL)
Nelson Vieira Leite, a prominent farmer and businessman and the brother of the municipal prefect, was waiting at his farm, 40 minutes’ drive out of town for his nephew Manoel Carlos Leite to drive him back to town when, despite seeing the sunset in the west, he was surprised to see it apparently rise in the west. He then saw that the light, rising over his field, pale at first but then building up to a blinding luminosity, was coming towards him out of the sky. The thing finally came to a halt just above the long grass of the meadow, its light fading again as it did so. Nelson walked towards the object, which he now saw was a green object resembling an upside down soup plate and significantly larger than a Volkswagen car, hovering between 1-3m above the ground. As Nelson got within 10m (some sources say 100m) he found that he could no longer go forward and was losing all track of time. When he stepped back he found he could easily walk away from the object, which was emitting a humming sound. Nelson then heard shout as his nephew, who had also seen the object, came running towards it, only to fall unconscious as he reached the barrier. Nelson found himself unable to help and became upset by his impotence. There now appeared a band of increased light on the disc, which seemed to indicate the presence of windows. Nelson felt that he must not look at this band and kept looking at the ground below the object. After about 20 minutes this light grew stronger and the noise louder, obliging Nelson to cover his ears. The object then took off, slowly at first and then very rapidly until it was just a point source of light in the sky. When Manoel had recovered they investigated the site and found an area of burnt and depressed grass.

The newspaper and magazine accounts used by Buhler say nothing about Manoel being stunned, though it does say the object first landed 400m away and that both witnesses were sweating profusely after the incident

ST MARTIN DE LONDRES (HERAULT : FRANCE)
A goat farmer and former long distance lorry driver, was driving an assistant back :to the village from his farm 3km away, on the rose up to the Montpellier Highway when, just before a turning, a powerful light lit up the fields behind them. When they turned the bend they were terrified to see, 400m to their left, a stationary long, white, cigar shaped object at the height of the power lines. The two men were so unnerved that they returned to the farm, where they woke a guest. The three of them watched the object, which was :some 500m from the farm,. It was between the power lines and the water tower and about 15m above the ground. They could see a dark bulge on its underside and they calculated the whole thing was about 20m long and 3m wide. When the farmer flashed his car headlights at this object, the thing went dark, only to light up again when the lights were switched off, this time with a red glow. It then made 5 rotations and they were able to see it actually was a disc. It then took off to the north at high speed at 15 degrees, still rotating. Associated features of this incident included by a guest at the restaurant who was surprised by a flash like a photographers when he went outside to relieve himself , a billy goat going sterile, and disturbances in the sexual cycle of the female goats, unexplained howling of his dogs each morning at0200hrs., strange balls of light zigzagging around his water tower and Morse like tapping on his transistor.

This seemed to be the work of two 1.42m tall beings with asymmetrical eyes and long black hair and beards. They wore short trousers, white blouses and dark shoes. Luiz struggled with these beings on the ground, eventually forcing them to retreat. As they walked away, apparently indifferent to the scrub, Luis followed them and set his dog on them, but the animal ended up curled up on the ground. After a while they continued on their search but the beings were gone. The dog never really recovered from the incident and died a month later.

A woman was awoken by a whirring sound, which made her think that her fridge door had opened. She went downstairs to investigate and found the door shut, but looking out through her glass front doors saw the house across the road bathed in a brilliant white glow. Then, through a side window, she saw the source of the illumination; an inverted saucer shaped object about 10m diameter, some 100m away on the other side of some trees. Part of the object seemed to be on the ground, the other part reached about 2m above the ground. There were several bright lights inset on this object. From the shadows emerged a man about 1.8m tall, lean with light hair, wearing white “combination overalls”, a tight fitting one piece suit. This man was in the shadows most of the time, but occasionally came into the light, always staying in the immediate proximity of the craft, and kept either digging or working on the ground. The witness went to check on her children, and then noticed the whirr getting louder. She thought of going to a neighbour’s but was afraid of going into the light. When the noise became even louder she ran to watch and saw that the object was on the other side of the oval, 6m above the ground, travelling in an arc, its lights going out. She then ran to her neighbour, who was in time to see the object disappear instantly over the ridge. The main witness also heard a high pitched beeping sound, like a transformer sparking, during the observation, Neighbours confirmed a strange glow left behind and hearing a faint whirring sound.

The groundsman at the Awanui Hotel, Nathan Brown (46) a Maori, was walking back the 3km to the hotel after a night drinking and playing darts with some friends. About 1.5km from Awanui he noticed incandescence behind some tall pampas buildings on the west of the road and went to investigate. After some metres he came to a gap 2.6m wide in the bushes which were growing from a ditch 3m from a paddock fence. In this area was some long grass. There he saw two men sat with their backs to the road, their feet dangling in the ditch, and a woman lying across the ditch, as if supported by a board that he could not see. He first thought it was some sort of roadside party, but the strange state of the young woman, who had unnaturally white shoulder length hair, deathly pale skin, and was dressed in a long white gown which covered her feet, her arms being inside the sleeveless gown and straight by her side. Her feet came up to 60cm in front of the men, and she appeared to be unconscious. Brown now thought it might be a road accident and getting no reply from, the men to his enquiries went to see what was wrong with the woman, only to be stopped by a sort of repulsive force. Brown now took a closer look at the men, who were sat with their heads slightly bowed; shoulders drooped, hands falling loosely into their lap. They were 1.65m tall, with dark brown skin, brown crew cut hair and wearing brown jackets and trousers. As Brown tried to look into their faces, they turned their heads away from him. Brown then lost his patience and tried to grab one of the men by his shoulders, only to find his hands couldn’t get within 30cm of his body, being stopped by a sort of fuzzy wall. Brown now became convinced he was dealing with supernatural forces, performed a traditional ritual against ghosts and fled the scene. Looking back he saw the strange light was still there, illuminating an area about 12m wide, 6m high. He tried to interest his brother in law, police and friends in the incident without much success. He then returned to the scene to find the light and people gone. :Next day he found traces where the people had been and a nearby flattened strip of grass, about 1m wide, 60cm long. For about three weeks after the incident Brown felt unusually tired and found it difficult to get up in the morning. He apparently had other psychic experiences (not specified).

ATLANTA (MISSOURI : USA)
Bill Overstreet (50) a route mail carrier and city marshall from Elmer Missouri was driving from there to Atlanta, when on route J 6.5km from Atlanta he noticed a bright light in the south, which seemed to be a northerly course, as he continued west. :However, as he came over the crest of a hill he encountered a reddish sphere about 30m in diameter, extending 3m on either side of the road, about 15-18m above the ground, giving off a light so brilliant that he pulled down his sun visor and shielded his face with his hands. As Bill approached it, the centre changed colour to a blue colour that wavered, and he noticed that the object was surrounded by a yellowish border rotating in a clockwise direction. He heard no noise as it moved along at 65kph, so he decided to drive under it. As he did so a beam of light, as wide as the object but narrowing to 2.5m diameter at the road, shot down in front of him. When the beam hit the road it was so brilliant it seemed to magnify the road features. :This beam was blue-white and gave off an intense heat, and when the front of his truck hit the beam, the vehicles lights and CB radio both failed, only to restart as the object. He attempted to follow it, but his engine kept missing when he got within 2m of the beam and stopped altogether when he came in contact with it. at this he stopped giving chase and watch the object continue at its modest pace and low altitude as veered north around the tower at Highway 53, and then south-east and out of sight towards Macon. It seemed to follow the curve of the land. He observed it for about 7 or 8 minutes.

He approached the light, which was about 200-300m away and came across another, dazzling, light, which lit up the area. It came from a translucent object 3m x3m, with part of the wall lifted up, revealing a cubical inner area, in which three beings were standing. These seemed to be human beings, and the general was invited on board, where there was some sort of screen showing aerial views of various cities. Despite the silence, and no sense of motion, it was clear that the object was moving. There were the usual pseud-scientific discussions, before the man was set down at about 0310.

They were silent and unemotional. Paul had a dream in which the object landed for 20 minutes and projected a calming beam at him.

A :workman returning to his home on the hill above the hall of residence of the Engineering Faculty, saw, suspended a few centimeters off the ground on top of the hill, an enormous, round, brilliantly shiny object from which came strange muffled sounds. Very afraid, he ran back into town and stayed the night there. At the same time, some 200m away, a student, Marco Antonio Von Kruger noticed some interference on his TV which stopped after a while. He thought of going out to investigate, but, glancing through his window, saw a vague shape moving around and heard the garbage bin being overturned. He later found it had been interfered with.

BRIDGNORTH (SHROPSHIRE : ENGLAND)
A retired schoolmistress was exercising her dog in some fields, a kilometres out of Bridgnorth. The animal ran through a hedge, following the stick she had thrown, but returned distressed. Thinking someone had attacked the dog, she went through the gap in the hedge and saw on the other side a top shaped object 3m tall, resting on :hree grey coloured legs. Around this object were three dwarfs, the size of 11 year old children. They had pear shaped heads, were dressed in black all over except for white belts, and appeared to lack hands. At first they were just standing, but then they began to collect samples, which they placed on the side of the craft. These samples seemed to disappear through the solid surface of the craft in some way. The lady did not wait around.

HARWOOD ISLAND(NEW SOUTH WALES : AUSTRALIA)
A woman out walking saw and heard a patch of sugar cane rustling violently, though there was no wind. A powerful beam of light swept the area, and when it hit the witness, she felt as though she was being lifted off the ground towards the source of the beam. The light then went out and she found herself still on the ground. She now saw that the beam had come from a helmet shaped object about 15m away, hovering 60cm above the 1,2m tall cane. The thing had a shiny grey surface, and portholes from which a mixture of pale yellow, pinkish red and green light shone, illuminating its surface. From its top came a thin smoke trail. The cane movement had now become gentle, but less than a minute later the agitation became violent again, there was a whistling sound and the thing just disappeared. at 2000hrs. a woman and her daughter fishing downstream from the Harwood Bridge saw a brilliant red light with a whitish trail hovering above the bridge. After a few seconds it just disappeared. The first witness thought that the corn was flattened by the event but did not verify this.

ITAUCU (GOIAS : BRAZIL)
Dolar Roque (25) an illiterate employee of the Fazenda Cerradinho, 12km from town, was riding home after failing to get a dentist to extract a tooth. About 2km out Itaucu, he became aware of a light following him, but did not take much notice of it until after another 200m, when the thing came down lower and closer. When Dolar stopped at the Rio Cerradinho, to let his horse drink the light came down the river and frightened the beast. Dolar managed to ride on another 100m at which point he was struck on the back by a beam of cold light that seemed to mesmerise him. His attempts to ride on, despite the glare, were halted when a second, hot, beam, hit him on the chest, paralysing him. He was vaguely aware of a huge object hovering above him and being pulled off hid horse by some force, at which he lost consciousness. Dolar recovered his senses at 0500hrs the next morning on a rock by a stream at a place he later learned was Itumbiara, some 400km away. His horse had arrived home, much frightened, that dawn. Dolar finally arrived home on the evening of the 21st, suffering from reddening of the skin. He appeared to be almost distracted with terror and his behaviour became disturbed. His psychological collapse accumulated with him poisoning himself and his 16 year old niece, with whom he had run off in late May.

SOUTH WAYNE (WISCONSIN : USA)
Robert and Wilma Phillips were driving to their home near South Wayne along State 11 from Monroe when, as they rounded a turn in the road, they noticed a bright yellow-orange light in the sky to their right, about 800m away. They stopped. They stopped to watch and the object moved down to within 30m of their car. The thing appeared to be shaped like an inverted ice cream cone, but as it came closer, they saw the cone was a stream of bright lights coming from a kettle drum shaped contraption, 6m diameter, 3-3.5m thick. Through the open window of their car they could hear a high pitched sound above the croaking of the frogs. The couple began to cautiously drive away and as they did so, the object tilted so that its flat top moved to the front, becoming somewhat deeper as it did so and it began to follow them from a distance of 30m from the road to their right and at an altitude of 6m. It continued to follow them for 6.5km. When they reached the drive of their farm they decided to keep on driving, so as not to attract the thing to their farm where their four teenage and two small children were. They proceeded to the outskirts of South Wayne village, where the object stopped, turned and moved up and away to the north, disappearing in seconds. The experience lasted 10 to 15 minutes. Though they encountered no other cars during the period of the close encounter, several people saw the object as it left the area.

It was 1.5m above the ground, about 60m away. They stopped the car and saw the thing take off across a 20 acre field of swamp and bush and hover above the high tension wires, rising and falling with them. It was a pinkish coloured disc shaped object surmounted by a cupola, about 10m in diameter, with two huge spotlights, which lit up the fields, and many windows through which red lights could be seen. The object then left and wires and moved over the car, lighting it up like day and emitting a heavy humming sound. The family dog, which was sat on the floor of the car, leapt up into the seat in terror.

The light came from an object like two soup bowls rim to rim, 10m in diameter, with a steady red light on top. In a transparent front section, illuminated by a blue glow, they could see a humanoid figure operating some controls, a second was pointing at them, and a third seemed to be walking towards a back door. All were wearing black tight fitting clothing which appeared to cover their faces. The taxi driver seemed terrified and insisted that they were only watching the floodlights. He drove them to a taxi rank and then drove off before they could pay their fare. Investigators were unable to trace him. A group of boys playing under floodlights in the park seemed to be oblivious of the craft’s presence.

On top of this was a dome with a sort of metallic looking frame cutting it into four pieces, which gave off a brilliant light, preventing Mareal seeing anything inside. This light, however, did not illuminate the surroundings at all. Very alarmed Mareal drove off.

Jose Antonio da Silva, a bachelor and orderly (enlisted) in the Minas Gerais Military Police, was spending his leave fishing by the Rio Los Velhas, when he saw some figures moving behind him, heard some voices and a sort of groan, at which he was hit in the legs by a green beam of light, which forced him to his knees. In this position he was set upon and dragged away by two people in masks, while a third stood guard. Da Silva saw that they were only 1.2m tall, completely covered in one piece shiny garments with articulated segements at the joints. They wore dull grey metallic masks, rounded at the back, square at the front, which resembled a kind of gas mask with a tube attached to a container on the back. He then caught sight of a machine like a :grey, vertical cylinder standing, slightly inclined, on the dirt road. On the top and bottom were black circular platforms, the top one larger than the bottom, joined by roads set at an oblique angle. The machine was 2m tall, the upper platform 3m diameter, the lower 2.5m. There was an opening 1.3mm by 60cm through which Da Silva was taken, to find himself in a roughly cubical space (2 x 2 x 2 m) which seemed to be composed of a grey material like stone. The whole scene was lit by a “mercury vapour lamp” from no discernible source. The beings then seated him on one of the stone seats in the space and they made him wear a mask and helmet like theirs, stapped him and themselves into the seats. They were then joined by the third man who moved a little lever to the side. Jose then heard a humming sound and felt a sensation of taking off. 

During the flight the light was so intense at times that Jose was forced to close his eyes, and at another the machine swung over 90 degrees. During this period the beings talked among themselves in an unknown tongue. The machine finally came to rest, and Jose was led blindfold into a large quadrilateral room 10-15m across and high. Here he met a slightly taller being without a suit, and his captors took off theirs. They had very long red hair and beards, very pale skins, large, round, green eyes, large noses and ears and toothless mouths. In this room the following adventures befell him : he saw four human corpses on a shelf; on the wall next to the shelf were pictures of various earthly things; the whole room was stony and lit like the vessel which brought him; 10-12 beings appeared in the room and examined his belongings; one pointed a weapon at the wall and scorched it with a ray; they seemed to be trying to get him to bring them human :weapons; he drank some dark green bitter liquid from a stone :cup, which seemed to restore his strength; the beings communicated with him via a slate, suggesting he should collect information for them :for three years, then return with them for seven; they tore his crucifix from him and passed it around, while they were doing this Jose had a vision of a tall man with long fair hair and a dark friar’s robe who reassured him and gave him a warning on humanity’s future. When this being vanished the creatures seemed to begin arguing amongst themselves and finally returned him to earth in exactly the same manner he had been taken. He was landed on the outskirts of Vitorio (Espirito Santo) on the coast about 400km away, and he found out it was now 9th May. He wandered around for a time before picking up the courage to return home. His leg was sore and the helmet had made scraches on his shoulder, and he later complained of sore eyes, headaches, stomach pains etc, which faded in time.

SALT LAKE CITY (UTAH : USA)
Wendel Meyer, Nancy Jensen and Nancy’s two year old son were driving from Moorhead (Minnesota) to California when, outside the Yellowstone National Park, they seemed to lose awareness. Nancy and her toddler were asleep and Wendel was driving in a daze until just outside Salt Lake City, when Wendel found that the steering wheel would not work and they crashed into a post at 145kph but only sustained minor damage. As he changed the tyre Wendel felt as though he was being watched and controlled and handed the driving over to Nancy. As Nancy drove along she also felt as though she was being watched and saw yellow and white lights in the mirror, which, though they were on the wrong side of the road, they thought were on a car until they took off and began to pace them at 30m distance. They now saw that the lights were on an object with a flat bottom, a fin on the back, a red light on the humped top and a sort of luminous cabin on top. They experienced an electronic “wail” and felt a vibration which went through their bodies. The back window opened a couple of centimetres and closed again on its own, at which the toddler woke up and started crying. Despite Nancy putting her foot down on the accelerator the car slowed from 110-95kph. The lights came closer and then retreated. The couple then pulled into a rest area where they encountered a strange “caravan” which made them feel uneasy and from which a strange bony face peeped out at them. Then from across the dual carriageway in the opposite direction to the lights came something resembling a huge “snowman” with a skull like face, rounded body and rounded jointless limbs. Only Wendel could see this figure and then only when the car lights were turned down, and during its appearance Wendel had the feeling that time had stopped, that Nancy and her child were no longer there and that the only reality was certain images flashing through his mind. Nancy appears to have broken this spell by switching on the lights and driving away. As they continued on their journey they found they had to keep swapping the driving as this task was now exhausting. The object seemed to ascend up into the sky when they stopped for petrol only to reappear later (this incident may have occurred earlier in the journey). By 0630 the object had moved off over the mountains and they were able to get a couple of hours sleep. 

At 0830hrs. they resumed their journey only to encounter the 'caravan' again. As they overtook it, Nancy looked in and saw two figures wearing black leather suits and gloves, and had only dim outlines where their heads should have been, with Cheshire Cat like grins. Wendel stopped to let it pass, but it did not do so and there was no turn off. Some minutes later they entered a small town which seemed all closed up, though there were parked cars everywhere. The atmosphere was so eerie they drove away. Later developments included another ufo experience and apparitions of a faceless hooded man with long thin fingers and an evil grin. Both Wendel and Nancy were given hypnotic regression in 1974/5. Nancy recalled that as the object made its first approach her mind seem to leave her body and entered the object’s cabin, where there were 20 or so small humanoids with oversized white heads and green insect like eyes, who appeared to be communicating by a sort of mumbling buzz . Wendel recalled seeing a humanoid figure in the cabin, then floating up and then sitting in a circular domed room, where there were white dwarfs with pale green insect like eyes, pale green noses and mouths. When they looked at him he felt tired as though they were draining his thoughts. He recalled that the creature that came out of the “caravan” had a pumpkin shaped head with wrap around eyes.

Having locked up for the night, bar owner Kaneko Nebutoshi and his wife Kioke were going down their external stairway when they saw an unfamiliar light through the mist. It seemed to be a sort of window, glowing like a mercury vapour lamp hovering above ground level. It illuminated the ground for 20m on either side, but not at all in front. The thing was about 8-10m diameter, 2.5-3m thick and divided into quarters by bars. The couple watched for about 45 minutes, during which time a spotlight was directed by the object towards some nearby trees and shrubs. The light vanished without them noticing any movement. The next day the couple and some other people went to the site where they found a circle of flattened vegetation about 8m diameter. Investigators later found six flattened disc shaped areas 5cm diameter, inside of each was a hole 2cm deep, 1.5cm wide, equidistantly 1.6cm apart.

Robin Peck (28), the owner of a radio and TV shop in Docking and a well-known local figure, was driving his Ford Thames van on the King’s Lynn Road and after passing through Bircham Newton and approaching a group of houses about 2.5km from Docking, when his lights began to dim and engine misfire. When he stopped the lights and engine went out completely, so he got out to check for a short circuit. As he opened the door he noticed a heavy static in the air, which made his hair stand on end, and noted that the digits on his watch were unusually luminous. He then saw an object about 400m away at 30-50m altitude. This object resembled a luminous blue inverted mushroom without the stalk, about 30m long, 12m wide, with a golden aura stretching down to the ground and a pale gold glow on top. No details were visible on it. After 1 to 1.5 minutes the object moved off towards King Lynn, in the SSW, at terrific speed, without any apparent acceleration. His van now functioned normally. After the incident his watch lost luminosity, the luminous paint became brown, and whereas it had once run fast it now ran slow.

The local magistrate, Mr Benedito, was walking along a narrow track, 6km out of town, when his attention was caught by a sound like a swarm of bees. Glancing to his left, he saw an unusual object hovering over the trees, rocking from side to side. The thing suddenly dropped out of the sky into the brush, so he rushed to the spot to see if he could assistant in what he assumed was an accident and got to within 6m of the object as it sat on the ground. The thing was 6m in diameter, with a bottom half shaped like a bowl, while the upper half was divided into two parts; one resembling a slightly shallower bowl sitting precisely on the lower one, while at the front was a drum revolving horizontally at high speed in an anti-clockwise direction. To the front of this drum was something that reminded Benedito of a filler cap. The whole thing was of a light leaden brown colour and openings were visible on it. As Benedito stood in amazement the thing lifted, its hum increasing in pitch as it did so. :The thing hovered for a moment and then took off in a gentle climb, nearly knocking Benedito off his feet with a strong blast of air. An area of flattened grass, swirled in an anti-clockwise direction was found at the site, as was a broken branch and a plastic bag, the latter, however, was thought to have been dropped by a sightseer. The grass in this depressed area was very wet in contrast to the dry surrounding grass.

Truck driver Pfc Earl Morrison (21) of the 11th Motors Alfa Co, 1st Division Marine Corps was on guard duty with two other men in an area where the lights established a 6m area of visibility. They were sat on bunkers, smoking, when they saw a sort of glow in the sky slowly coming towards them. Gradually they resolved the figure of a black, naked woman with huge black wings; her whole body seemed to be surrounded by a green glow. She was flying at about 2m altitude, and when she got within 3m of the men they could hear her wings flapping. Her arms appeared to be too subtle to have any bones in them; her body was covered in a downy fur. She had well developed breasts and straight hair. She flew horizontally, face to the ground. About a year later Morrison was hospitalised with swollen lymph glands.

Looking out of the window, he saw, descending from a dense cloud in the northwest, a large green eliptical object that came to rest only 15m from him. The rising sun reflected off a widow like opening in the craft and he was able to see the outlines of two heads turn. He now saw that the object was egg shaped, 6m long, 4-5.5m wide and 3m deep. The sound had now stopped and the object was silent. As the two figures turned the object turned to the left slightly and rose straight up into the east. An impression was noted at the site.

This alerted the adults in the house, farmer Arcesio Bermudez (50), his sisters Lucrecia Bermundez and Rosa Ortiz along with his butler Luis Carbajal and Luis’ wife Evelia. At Mauricio’s insistence they all went out and saw the light 200m away. When the boy flashed his flashlight at it, the light source approached the house at considerable speed, coming to rest :between two tall trees 50m away, at which point Mrs Ortiz panicked . They could see that the object was between 1.2 and 1.5m tall, yellow orange in colour, surrounded by an arc of light, with two luminous legs, blue with green tips. It then flew silently to the right of the farmhouse and appeared to come low over a nearby hill, whereupon Arcesio, braver than the rest, too off after it. :He came within 6m of the object, which then switched off its light. When he shone the flashlight at it Arcesio saw a strange being inside, top half humanoid, but from the waist down resembling a luminous capital A,. The object then flashed on its light and rose into the sky. About 5 minutes later all the witnesses saw an identical object crossing the sky at 100m altitude. The witnesses concurred in their description of a spherical object with a ring at the midsection. Within 2 days of the encounter, Arcesio died of a disease , the symptoms of which (bloody vomiting and blood diarrhoea) were compatible with either severe gastro-enteritis or radiation damage. No autopsy took place. A pet monkey and some dogs were agitated during the incident.

Three 'high society' women and their two maids, who lived in two cottages about 70m apart together saw several luminous objects until 0500hrs the next day. The incidents began with interference on their TV followed by a town wide power failure. They first observed a luminous, white bowl shaped object, 80cm diameter coming down slowly and silently over the horizon. This object was not seen again, but a white, spherical light, about 20cm diameter flew along the road, hovered for 20 minutes and emitted a blinding, laser like, blue beam, which lit them up. Feeling afraid, they went into the house, where they saw through the window, not the white sphere, but a red rectangular thing about 1.5km away and about 20m long. Later a second fireball, about 7 cm diameters, was seen behind a tree, where it remained till 0300, when three of the women went to bed. At about 0500hrs the other two women saw a cupola shaped object far away. It was shaded but on its lower part of number of intermittent, separate lights were visible. The local dogs were howling all the time. The next say the women’s husbands tried to duplicate the effects with car headlights but without success. The women were considered to be reliable.

A former nurse was driving the 25km from her mother’s house, to her own near Mortlake, along open country, when she saw red and green lights, which she thought were on an aircraft. However, the object descended rapidly to a height of 15m, to her left and she saw it was a metallic looking dome, surrounded by red domed lights and a flashing green light to its rear. The object then crossed over the road in front of her car and took up a position 50m to her right from where it paced her for 5-7km. The object kept pace as she accelerated from 70-130kph and responded quickly to her changes in direction. From its tail there flashed a green beam, which caused her head to throb and her chest to feel distended. When she turned on the main highway and stopped outside a farmhouse, the object rose up to a great height above the house, vanishing when another car appeared. The woman later suffered from anxiety attacks that required medical treatment.

At an undisclosed location a couple were parked in a lot adjacent to a flood control dam when their attention was caught by an intensely bright flash “brighter than several flash bulbs” about 300m top their right. The male witness got the impression that the bright glare was a reflection on a metallic surface, with a sort of railing made up of narrow areas of bright light, separated by dark areas. The whole thing appeared to be 6m x6m. Then, without any perception of movement, the object appeared in a position in front of their car, which made it visible at the extreme upper end of the car windshield. The man, frightened, drove off, but after about 30m asked him to stop to see what the thing was. He could not see the object, but a sensation of being drawn out of the car seized him, moving down from his head to his feet. He seemed to lose consciousness for a moment and when he recovered he felt as though he was being lifted out of his seat. He grabbed hold of the steering wheel and the sensation left him. He drove off straight away. The woman felt none of these sensations, just seeing her companion shudder and fall forward, wrapping his arms around the steering wheel.

The thing was round, with a centre portion illuminated with a reddish tint and was soundless. It then descended into the wood, and as it did so a string of red and green lights shot out from its rear section. As this object descended below tree level, the witnesses saw large flashing white lights, which illuminated trees over a wide area. No traces were found.

GROOMSPORT (CO. DOWN : NORTHERN IRELAND)
Shorthand typist Helen Carr was awoken by a brilliant light coming from behind a small hill, opposite her bedroom. After watching for a short while, she saw an oval shaped object, with a large bright light to the front rise over the hill. Around the rim of the object was a row of windows, which gave the only indication as to its shape, as she could not see the outline. As the thing began to silently descent the hill towards the by-pass in front of her house, it seemed to come closer to the ground. The light moved around the estate like a searchlight, though she could see no beam connecting it to the bright light on the object. This light swept the houses, lighting up her wall at one point. She watched the object for about an hour, though she felt cold, but seemed unable to take her. When the first object was halfway down the field, it was followed by a second, similar, object. The objects were lost to view behind the next door and at this point she heard a car brake, but the incident occurred outside her field of view. She waited to see if the objects reappeared and then went back to bed and fell asleep. Her father and a neighbour were also wakened by the light but did not investigate. No traces could be found.

WAMBEZ (L’ OISE : FRANCE)
Amedee Luquet was going to milk his cows in a meadow about 1km from the village, alongside RN30 and was on a hillock calling to the beasts when he noticed a white light, like a car headlight, behind the hedge in the bottom of the valley. Luquet first thought it was an another farmer with a flash light and then realised that the thing was describing a circle, 1 hectare in circumference, at dizzying speed, turning fast and illuminating the surroundings as it did so. The thing then surveyed the hedge at the south west boundary of the field, passed in front of Luquet at 50m altitude at 45 degrees. Crossed the RN, after which the white light went out and was replaced by red flames. There were five or six of these lights, but he did not have time to count them properly. The object then disappeared behind the summit of a hill to his right, in the direction of Buicourt. As the object passed by Luquet, he thought he saw, under it, a dark oval the size of a small car. The only sound the thing made was one resembling the wind in the trees.

NEW MILFORD (CONNECTICUT : USA)
Steven W (13) was sitting reading in his second story bedroom in his Pickett district house when he became aware of a strange noise from the district generator plant, which was behind his house. A few seconds later a light lit up the ground and a domed object descended down to about 15m altitude, about 75m away. The thing appeared to be in three sections and it was on a tilt, so that Steven could see four blue-white lights on its underside. The object itself was dull grey in colour and an estimated four times the size of car (ie about 17m diameter). There was a high pitched sound like an ambulance siren and leaves were blown about by a sort of wind. A horse fenced in the yard became frantic. his object was shaped like a sort of dish, surmounted by a shallow dome, and with a steeper dome on top that. : The thing then took off vertically and then moved away at an angle, the light becoming misty as it did so. Meanwhile his mother Elaine was driving up Rte7 from the Brookfield Centre, with a friend, Earl Blois, a commercial artist, travelling in the car behind, when they borh saw the lights of what appeared to an aircraft in distress. They then realised that the lights were too far apart, travelling too slowly and were steady. One light then veered off at an angle, while the other one went straight ahead. The witnesses didn’t stop until they reached the W house. :Several other people saw a powerful light in the sky.

Two Baptist College freshmen, Cedric Sutherland and Gerry Talbert (both 18) were driving along Raines Drive in the Wildwood section, near their Mobile College campus when they saw bright white lights in the sky, which they thought were on a plane. They then realised that the object was descending rapidly at 45 degrees and that flashing red lights had come on. The object then began to decelerate rapidly and began to descend into a vacant lot 15-30m from the road, flattening grass and bending trees as it did so. The lads then saw that it was a dark grey object, with luminous white panels circling the exterior, with two rings of red flashing lights, one on the top, the other on the bottom. The whole thing was 10-15m diameter and about 4.5m high. The duo braked but the object became lost to sight behind the trees. The boys called the police and Patrolman G. Pressnell inspected the area, finding evidence of flattened grass and two small pine trees had been broken. Several other people called radio and TV stations to report unidentified objects.

About 10 of the beings were moving to and fro along the wire, and another 7 were in the paddock. He could only see them from the waist downwards and they seemed to be transparent. One of the beings came within 8m of Aquila, who saw that it had a rod which it raised, whereupon the being flew up into the air and joined its comrades. The other beings by the fence then shone of their powerful beams on Aquila. The whole house was lit up, a pane of glass was shattered, and he felt a powerful blow on his face, which almost stunned him. Shaken he went back into the kitchen and peeped through the little window in the door, though which he saw the beings with their lights run along the fence from one side to the other three times, focussing their lights on the ground, trees and dung heap.

A patrol car and several other vehicles also stopped. The light was also seen by Mrs Jones as she passed through the area. The light was last seen moving towards Tonopah.

PALOVAARA (EASTERN FINLAND : FINLAND)
Logger Heino Vaarla was driving towards Palovaara, with his wife and brother-in-law when they suddenly noticed a bright light soaring high in the sky. This light then descended rapidly in the direction in which they were travelling. After they had driven another 800m, the light swooped :directly in front of the car, causing Heino to brake immediately. The :thing was a sort of conical flame, 1.5m long, 50cm wide, and 1-1.5 m above the surface of the road. Its centre was dark and its top was glowing red. From its bottom flames were spurting like a rocket. This object kept pace with the car, which he slowed to 20kph. Both light and car then both came across a pedestrian walking in the same direction ahead of them, who seemed unaware of the light. Before the light could reach him, it rose abruptly in a curve to the left, where it was hidden by the forest. The thing had paced the car for about 2.8km.

Near ATLANTA (GEORGIA : USA)
A 25 year old high school teacher and her mother, both from Florida, were parked on the main street of a small town in the outskirts of Atlanta discussing how to trace a relative who had moved house,. The mother saw a black saucer shaped object with a flat bottom hovering and an opening appearing. The daughter saw her mother’s expression and looked to see a sort of plastic bubble roll through the opening and drift towards the ground. The interior of this bubble appeared to be illuminated by a white hot light. The bubble was shimmering and appeared to be constantly changing shape. As it reached the ground, its outer part seemed to melt away and the white hot core divided into three parts, like prongs or arrows, which landed in a back lot across the street, 15-20m away. The arrows still appeared to be flaming hot and went into the ground. As they sat musing over this incident, a group of local boys in a car asked if they were OK. When they said they were the boys drove off but returned soon afterwards. After a while, the women saw, in the lot, a dark figure 1.68 to 1.75m tall, with large shoulders, a body tapering down into a very narrow waist, thin hips and legs. Its head was pointed and extremely small for the body. Its arms were shorter than normal and appeared to be all black. No features were visible. Two other figures, one much taller than its fellows, seemed to appear out of nowhere. They had instruments with a long handle a triangular base, with which they swept an area about 2.7m diameter, as if they were beating something back. They had a sort of basket in the centre, into which they put objects, when they had accumulated a pile of them. It appeared as though they were trying to catch something, and when the largest being could not catch it with its rake, it bent down and picked up a glowing object. As it did so the glow went out, and the being put it in the basket. The figures seemed to move in a syncopated jerky fashion as if marking time with each movement of their bodies. At this point the teenagers in the other car appear to have caught site of the spectacle, because they drove right up to the spot, at which the figures just vanished and the boys drove away. Nothing more was seen of the object or the boys. The witnesses did not want their names used for fear of ridicule.
