Vicento Rodenas, a reliable innkeeper, aged about 55, had gone out into the fields to saw, accompanied by his nephew Miguel and another person. There they saw, above Espes Hill, a dark body the size of a car, which had a light that slowly increased in intensity, and then diminished. When its brightness increased the object rose, and when it stopped the light diminished. The thing rose like that to an altitude of about 100m, where it stopped awhile, and then, emitting green sparks, it turned away to the North. Rodenas was more afraid than he had been in the civil war.

One night after yelling at these things, asking them what they were, he was in bed when he felt an impulse to go to the lagoon in his jeep, down a back road. As he approached, two human looking beings about 2m tall, with long blond hair, dressed in silvery one piece suits, approached. Afraid, he waved them back, and they walked back into the lagoon.

Early January 1964/MENTON (ALPES-MARITIMES :
A retired psychiatrist and acupuncturist was making meteorological observations, when he heard strange voices. Going up a slope he encountered a strange object close to or on the ground. It was a Saturn shaped thing, with a domed top, a sort of bowl shaped underside, with a central, very thin, bluish metallic rim. The object was so close that he was able to touch it several times, feeling only a tingling on each occasion. The upper part of the central sphere was transparent, inside of which could be seen a sort of polished metallic tube. After a while he heard a humming sound and an opening appeared in the rim, from which a light, first bright and then blinding was given out from this tube. By the time he felt able to open his eyes, the object was taking off at high speed.

Several customers on the verandah of a cliff top restaurant near Santa Eufemia noticed groups of mysterious glowing objects scattered over the sea. Some fishermen tried to approach these “luminous dolphins”, which were 300m offshore, but as they approached they realized that these were metallic torpedoes, 3-4m long, with three antennae, 1m long, on their bodies. When one of the men struck one of these “torpedoes” with an oar he received a powerful electric shock, which caused them to row back in panic.

A farmer’s wife suddenly awoke on this hot night and noticed that her bedroom was brilliantly illuminated by a dazzling light which threw the outside area into sharp relief. She did not see anything at first, but suddenly, as if a cinema screen had descended, she saw a normal human figure 1.6m tall holding a black box about 45 cm square which he was pointing towards a garden near the house. He pointed it at a couple of plants and at the witness, and on each occasion there was a buzz and a click. After he had pointed it at the witness, he took the box away from his face. She now saw that he wore a black balaclava like helmet, blue-green overalls, a brown open jacket with 3 large buttons down the front, elbow length black gauntlets on his hands, and a cord which ran from his helmet to his left shoulder. He appeared to have a red face with a large nose. The woman now became uneasy and went back to bed to watch from there. She heard 3 definite footsteps on the concrete verandah coming nearer, and on the bed appeared a ring of silver light. She tried to speak to the man but could not get the words out. The man and the light had by now vanished and the woman fell asleep. The incident was part of a complex contactee nexus.

A schoolboy, David Mathlin (aged about 7) was setting out to visit a friend and had just opened the gate when he heard a sound from a vacant lot across the road, and saw an object about 7.5 m diameter, 4.5-6m high. It was oval shaped with a dome. The dome was of a silvery grey colour, topped by a spinning ball. An opening appeared and a human figure 2.1-2.4m tall appeared. He was dressed in black tights, a purplish shirt and coat, a skull cap, black gloves and black metallic high heeled boots. Around his waist was a thick dark belt, with a buckle 35 cm by 35 cm. He had a coppery red face and a large nose. A second figure was visible inside the object. David ran to fetch a friend Kim Jenson (10) but when they returned the object was taking off to the north. The observation lasted three minutes. Investigators cast some doubt on this story and some published versions are exaggerated.

Mrs. Lainchbury was awakened by a whirring sound and an orange light flooding into her bedroom. Going to the window, she saw a sphere of orange light floating across the sky, approaching her window, then moving away over neighboring houses, growing brighter, then exploding into fragments. Some minutes later she heard a noise like the chattering of angry or frightened voices. The next morning she found the window frame, door and drainpipe near to where the sphere had been were burnt, the drainpipe was also broken.. later these areas were found to be unpaintable, the paint falling in lumps.

Mr. and Mrs. L observed the landing of a top shaped object within 100m or so of their mountainside home on numerous occasions starting in April. The object was first seen by Mrs. L, then her husband and daughter Mrs. C S. It was top shaped, the size of a house, and its circumference was surrounded by rows of fluorescent lights ranging from bright to dim. On one occasion Mrs. L and C were awoken to see a strange beam of light 7.5cm diameter pointing at their foot. When they rose, the light followed them around the room. On another occasion the lights of the object dimmed as an aircraft passed overhead, and on yet another occasion they saw it take off to join four others in the sky. The presence of the object was signaled by a panic among the animals, the spontaneous lighting of the oil furnace and the cessation of normal sound. Since the visitations began the game left the area, the house was plagued by poltergeist activity, local TV reception developed interference and their grandson K S (31/2) claimed to meet a spaceman with an unpronounceable name in the barn, unaccountably disappearing and appearing hours later, “visiting the spaceman”, these incidents being accompanied by the same indications as the appearance of the object.

A graduate student of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin, Mr. Rossing, his wife, mother in law and 12 year old sister in law, were driving west on county highway C towards Argyle, 1.6km out of Monticello on this dark night, when they saw two red flashing lights at 11 o clock. They realized that were too far above ground level to be a police car, and as these lights came closer, they feared that they were in the path of a crashing airliner. They stopped and rolled down the windows, as the girl lay on the floor in terror. The thing now came closer, slowing and hovering alongside the car, about 100m to the left of the road. It was composed of four red lights, more or less making the vertices of a rectangle, one white light in front of the others at closest approach, and a large number of minor lights. This gave the object the appearance of a sort of flying Christmas tree, and the geometric regularity of the lights suggested that they were on a solid body. At this closest approach the thing was behind the telephone poles and wires, subtended an angle of 30 degrees and was so large that the lights were both above and below the wires, thought it might just have fitted into the space between the poles. The object then passed to the rear, at which time the anthropologist turned the car around, to see the lights disappearing in the distance. Though he pursued it at speeds of up to 80kph, the lights moved rapidly away in the direction of

Mrs. Marie Morrow her 6 year old son and her friend Ruth Overlette were driving west, when 15-25km east of Lordsbury, when the boy alerted them to what he thought was a jet aircraft approaching from behind. Shortly afterwards, the car and the entire surroundings were illuminated by a bluish light, which lit everything up as bright as day. Marie braked and swerved to the right. She saw that the light was a large circle, as bright as a welder’s torch, composed of many lenticular lights, and that it appeared to be only 3m above the car, and quite a bit wider than that. It gave off a whirring sound as it continued down the highway, veered north and disappeared out of sight. The observation lasted two or three minutes.

(YORKSHIRE;The driver of a lorry parked in a lay-by was awakened by a strange noise, and opened his cab window to see a large domed disc descending into a field 60m away. It had large square windows which went around the circumference. After a short while a sort of ramp was let down, revealing an opening. A figure then appeared at this opening and shouted at someone inside. Then a total of 36 similar figures filed down the ramp and formed up in three separate ranks. They all appeared to be fair skinned, dressed in olive green tunics with hoods and black boots. They carried outsize torches which gave off green beams, and spread out to search the fields. The terrified driver tried to start his vehicle but the engine was dead, so he dived out of the far end and hid among some trees. From there he saw the figures examine his lorry before returning to their craft, which took off with a loud droning noise and slowly moved away. After it had left, the witness examined the site and found an area of flattened grass 25m diameter. The lorry engine now worked perfectly.

The thing maneuvered over Winifred before disappearing.

A huge pink-orange luminous sphere was seen hovering over the fire house, from a home to the west by two women and three teenage girls. The thing moved in a jerky fashion and passed over the house at 30m altitude, turning from deep orange to white and making a whirring sound. It then descended rapidly, appearing to land in an artificial lake. Two 6 year old boys independently reported this and claimed to see a sort of net hanging from the object. After 10 minutes a white light ascended and moved rapidly away to the west, blinking white and orange. During this performance the fire station staff complained of heat and the main transmitter overheated. Several other witnesses saw a strange object maneuvering in the area, including Mr. and Mrs. R J Meyers, Marvin Veigel, his wife and 14 year old son, and her Ben Frye.

A 10 year old farmer’s son, Michael B, who had never been allowed to read science fiction, went to put the cow into the field and was surprised by the unusual nervousness of the animal and its reluctance to leave the barn. When they reached the barn door, Michael saw a bright silver object less than 60m away, in the wheat field., It was square, metallic and the apparent size of the kitchen table, about 1.2m high, with a cone in the front and was standing on four shiny legs. The thing then began to take off, making a beeping noise, slowly until it reached telephone pole height at which it rocketed away. Michael ran back in terror as was described as “white as a sheet”. At 0800 Mrs. B and a neighbor, carpenter Ray Morntensen went to investigate and found that the wheat was flattened as if by a huge wind, in a circle, in the centre of which was an inner circle about 90cm diameter where the wheat was evenly flattened. Outside this inner circle were four plate sized marks, three of which were very clear. The case was investigated by Air Force Ltn Frank Rezak who testified to the boy’s sincerity.

Charles stood with his eyes tight shut until the object rose quickly away with a whooshing sound and disappeared. The boy’s face was swollen and covered with a sooty deposit. Hospital examination showed he ahd second degree burns but had felt no pain until the wounds began to heal. Samples were taken from the boy’s shirt and Mrs. Smith’s apron, but no analysis was revealed.

David Wilson (14) was passing Lam Lane Farm, on the way to get some straw for his rabbits, when he saw about 10 small figures which he thought were small children standing about 20m from a haystack. As David got within 30m of the scene he saw 5 or 6 similar beings on the haystack. They stood 60-75cm tall, dressed in green suits, with hands which resembled lighted electric light bulbs. They were rummaging through the hay as if searching for something. Other children in the area also claimed to have seen the beings, and a young girl saw a circular silvery object take off from the ground.

Marlene A Ventura, a laboratory technician, and Donald Kupchick Jnr, a landscaper, were parked outside her residence, when their attention was caught when her backyard was lit up by a light that came from a luminous sphere making a slow descent at 45 degrees. Its dull red, transparent circular centre was surrounded by an orange and a yellow ring. It was followed by 10 much smaller objects. They all came very low, clearly the 3.5-4.5m tall shrubbery and moved across her drive at 1.5-1.8m altitude, some 15-16m away. The objects briefly hovered, their lights increasing in brilliance, revealing a fourth, yellow-gold ring around the main object. They estimated that this object was 3m in diameter. The small objects were rectangular with translucent red domes, and appeared to be about 60cm long and appeared to be divided into three identical pyramid shaped sections. Then from the lower edge of the main object projected “fingers” of bluish white light, with sparkling tips. These were perhaps 2m across. The area was by this time illuminated by an intense light that highlighted the grass and portions of the house wall, giving colours a negative look to them. There was then an intense flash, which did not however dazzle the couple, and the things had vanished. No traces could be found.

Two boys searching for cows in a deserted pasture observed three objects, one of which appeared to be in difficulty. The things emitted a shrill sound. The next night the lads returned with Sheriff K C Brinkerhoff, publisher Harvey Ralise and two other men. They saw an ill-defined object in the field and turned their spotlight on it. When they did so, a green light came from the object, filling the sheriff’s car. They estimated that this light was 10-15 times more powerful than an aircraft landing spotlight. The object had been travelling across the muddy ground, which was on the nearby road, at up to 95kph. When the thing switched its light off the witnesses left the area.

Mrs. Helen Reed, who lived next to US50, about 4km west of Lawrenceville, was in her back yard taking in the washing when she looked up and saw a strange object near the shed behind her barn. No structure was visible, only light sources. It appeared to be 3-5m above the ground and moved closer to the shed and out of sight. Helen then went to investigate and saw the object move slowly east for about 100m, make a sharp left turn, moved a similar distance to the north and then sharply turn and approach within 15m, where it hovered for a few seconds, its lights brighter than headlights but not causing her any discomfort. There was no sound and Helen saw its yellow lights were rotating counter clockwise at increasing speed and at the same time they appeared to be on a vertical band moving left to right at a slow rotation. There appeared to be a wide space at one point in the lights, as if one light was missing. Helen estimated that the object was 3.5-4.5m diameter. There was a top light that turned blue-orange-red. The object finally became partially obscured by trees before it vanished into the north keeping to the same altitude. The observation lasted for 10 minutes.

Charles Englebrecht (18) was alone at home, watching TV in his darkened living room, when a light flashed through his window and the electrical power failed. Charles felt his way outside and looked through the door. About 15m away he saw a basketball sized, blue-white light hovering on or just above the ground. He started towards the thing but found himself paralyzed as he experienced a tingling sensation in his body. The light rose and disappeared over the barn leaving a sulfurous or “burnt rubber” smell, which was detectable 400m away. NICAP and Air Force Investigators found a plate sized area of scorched ground, surrounded by three holes 2.5cm deep in the shape of an isosceles triangle. All the cherry trees and plants in the area of the landing died afterwards.

William Angeles (20), a first year student at the Franklin Technical Institute, was watching TV in his living room, while his mother was lying in bed awake in another room. The living room was filled with a loud, intermittent roar, which died down after 5 seconds. Going out to investigate William saw a red glowing light, shaped like an inverted, truncated cone, hovering above the vacant parking lot 6m away. He then saw that this cone was suspended from the bottom of a slightly riding domed object, 4.5m diameter. As William started down the steps towards the departing object, he felt a tingling sensation in his body and found himself paralyzed. He could not move again until the thing moved away at great speed, spewing out a white vapour trail. A neighbor reported an orange flash of light, a loud noise and interference on her TV.

Eddie Fund (21) was driving his girlfriend Linda Taylor (17) and her parents’ home to their
home when the car was paced by what at first looked like a cluster of lights,
reflected in their rear view mirror. On closer examination they resolved into a
group of 15-20m amber coloured discoid objects travelling about 20m above the
ground. They were at least 1.5m diameter and turned so that their configuration
was easily visible. When the party got out for a closer look, the objects
stopped also, their glow diminishing and nearly disappearing. When the group
continued the journey the objects reappeared, brighter than before and could
not be shaken off even at speeds up to 160kph. At some point in the journey
they seemed to come out of the ground. When the party pulled into a driveway
the objects split formation and disappeared behind trees. These objects were
independently reported by Indian
River County Mr.

Rancher George W Rogers of
Spring Valley was driving
to Ely with his brother Bert when they noticed a peculiar object, which they
thought was a crashed jeep, beside the road. They then realized it was the top
of an object 1.2m above the road. The thing then rose and landed on the road,
resting on a 60cm long slender pedestal, and the witnesses, who were within a
metre or two of it, saw it was a pyramid shaped top with the point facing down
to the pedestal. The top was curved and rotating rapidly. George ran out to
touch the thing which, as he drew near, rose 3m with a loud humming sound,
descending on the road 12m away. This performance took place three or four
times. Finally, prompted by his brother’s warnings, George re-entered the car
and the object rose slowly and then moved rapidly away to the east, vanishing
behind a ridge. George noticed that the surface of the thing was made of a
shiny plastic like material, and that it had a red insignia on one face, which
he could not make out because of the rapid spin.
