Trevor Marsh was driving home in his Morris 1000 car when he saw an orange light over Norridge Wood. He thought it was the navigation light of a helicopter, but then it was suddenly right over him, its brilliance forcing him to slow down. As it descended to about 10m altitude, Trevor’s car engine failed and the vehicle came to a stop. Looking up, he saw that the object was huge, circular and flashing with multi-coloured lights. He drove rapidly home and reported the matter to his father. He saw a similar object about 5 days later on the same stretch of road, so turned back to avoid it.

A family were driving a pickup truck in the stockyards near Omaha when three beings ran across the road ahead. The third stood right in the road, and as they were about to collide with it, it made a leap of about 10m across the road and over a fence. The beings were small, with large bald heads and large eyes. The man, a former FBI agent, wanted to investigate but his wife object. That night they heard a radio report that cattle had been found dead in the stockyard.

Ray Badger were doing some night fishing at Diglis Weir on the River Severn, when an intense fluorescent block of white light suddenly appeared no more than 60m above them. They staggered back in surprise. After a few minutes the block of light switched off, then a second, identical block appeared in the same location. These blocks of lights neither projected light nor were reflected in the water. This repeated a further distance away, and then, at higher altitude, over the gasometer on the far side of the river. When this disappeared it left a shower of sparks.

Sheila St Clair and her husband were inspecting the grounds of the old church here, when she saw, by a gate, the figure of a man, the head and upper body of which were clothed in a brown cloak or habit, where below the knees the figure faded into a brown mist. It had a thin, pale, “evil” face, with deep set eyes. Sheila, who had been about to take a photograph, stood rooted to the spot. When her husband called out, the figure vanished.

A couple in a car on Southport beach saw a yellow object like a buoy, which wobbled and rotated, on the water. The woman became frightened and urged her boyfriend to drive away, but the car would not start. After several attempts the man decided to get his gun and shoot the object but the boot would not open. They tried to drive away again but again failed. Then, though the night was quiet and still, sand began to spray over the bonnet and windscreen. They were now able to drive away. When they looked back the object had gone. The woman had many other strange experiences.

Three boys were camping in sleeping bags in the backyard of a house in south west Seattle. Two of them were awakened by a loud, fluctuating, humming noise, and a brilliant light that bathed the whole area in a white glow. They then saw a circular object approximately 1.2m in diameter, with a transparent dome on which there was a rotating fixture, resembling a periscope. On its underside were four appendages resembling coiled springs. The thing descended to within about 1m of the ground, then began manoeuvring around the lawn. As it approached them, the two boys grabbed their sleeping companion and ragged him into the house. There, with the host boy’s parents, they watched the object until it disappeared a few minutes later. The thing had broken a power line, and entered and damaged a shed. A scorched spot was found on one of the sleeping bags, and the grass over which the object had hovered turned yellow and died.

A woman was on the phone in a second floor room of her house, when she heard a rustling sound and saw a flash of light. She was puzzled but not concerned and continued with her call for another 15 minutes. When she had finished the conversation, she glanced out of her window and was shocked to see a globe of light, diffuse at the edges and not clearly delineated, in which six people with “deep sun tans” lay on their backs and made motions as if rowing. They appeared be small, about 1.5m tall and they appeared to be lying in a haphazard way. There was no sound, and the light was hovering a metre or so above the ground in her neighbour’s yard, about 30m away. After about five minutes the light went out. The witness was too surprised to take in many details, and thought that she was going insane, and was only reassured as to her sanity when her Puerto Rican maid reported that she had heard a “swishing” sound and had seen a light flash past her window.

For several days in June Maurice Masse (41) and his father, who were lavender growers, were annoyed by someone picking lavender shoots from the “l’Olivel Field”. On this morning Maurice was finishing a cigarette while standing near a hillock beside a small vineyard along side this field, when he heard a whistling sound. He then stepped from behind the mound to see at a distance of about 90m, a machine shaped like a rugby (American football) ball. It was standing on six legs, with a central pivot, and a cupola on top. Beside it were two small beings the size of eight year old children. He first thought it was an experimental helicopter, then that it was the people who had been damaging his crops. He crept through the vineyard and 15m of open field, until he got within 5m of the machine and its occupants. As he did so, they straightened up, and one pointed a sort of tube at him, paralysing him completely. He could see now that the beings were 1-1.1m tall, with huge heads, three times as large as a man’s. They were entirely bald, with white “not pretty” faces, smooth skins.

Their features were generally human except for their hole like lipless mouths, high cheekbones, and large slanting eyes. They seemed to communicate by means of gurgling sounds, which seemed to come from their stomachs rather than their mouths. They wore close fitting grey-green overalls, with a small container on the left hand side and a larger one on the right. They then seemed to somehow smile at him, giving him a feeling of “peace and friendship”. After a time they returned to the machine, and for a while he could see them inside it, while its legs whirled around. The craft then took of with a thump from the central pivot and floated away, till it reached about 20m away when it just disappeared on the spot. Maurice regained the use of his limbs over about a 15 minute period. Traces, consisting of a depression 1.2m diameter, 40cm deep, crossed by four furrows 8cm wide and 2 cm long, were found at the spot and the ground seemed soaked. Masse refused to grow anything there for a period of some years, and when he did so, the landing spot remained barren for 10 years. In the days that followed he found he needed an inordinate amount of sleep, while he became more obsessed with the idea that the beings were friendly, and that he “knew” when they were about.

Mrs A W Brundage was driving home from her job at the Olympic View Nursing Home when, as she passed an old barn, the car stopped suddenly as a small orange, glowing object hovered a few centimetres above the car bonnet. The thing resembled a top and was spinning slowly. After about two minutes it left with a swishing sound. The car lights and radio resumed but she had difficulty in starting the engine and the next morning she found that her battery was completely dead. A clock which had previously kept perfect time was found to be two minutes slow.

Seaman Hernandez Ambeosio, port lookout on the T T Jawesta, en route from Puerta La Cruz (Venezuela) to the Canary Islands , observed a luminous object apparently rise out of the ocean. Chief Mate Tergrim Lien observed the object as it approached the ship below the clouds at an altitude of 200-400m. It was cigar shaped, with a row of square windows, through which a faint orange glow came from the interior. From its rear came a blue tongue of fire, followed by a number of blue globes, each giving off a blue beam. The object was observed for 30-40 seconds, going in a north-south direction. Three other seamen, Marciso Guillen, Jean Hernandez and Ignacio Suarez also saw the thing.

John Hambling, a geologist and mining company exploration manager and his companion geologists were studying a miner rich area 110km north of Hazelton. They had just set up their equipment after a helicopter had left when they saw a silvery object, illuminated by the sun; appear over a small ridge below them. They first thought that it was some kind of delta wing aircraft, but then saw that it was a domed object some 800m away. The thing was about 15m in diameter and the dome was surmounted by a small knob and the object had circular markings on its base, which they thought could have been rivets or small windows. On the face of the disc itself were at least three rectangular markings, which looked like windows.
The object moved slowly across the ridge, hovered and then descended down to 15m above a small glacial lake. The thing then lowered a sort of pipe onto the water, the disc rotating, with a humming sound, until the windows were facing the witnesses, who got the impression that they were being observed. After about 8 minutes the pipe was carefully retracted. The object then shot away over the ridge, reaching a distance of 30-40m in 20 seconds. The second geologist took some photographs of the scene but nothing further was ever heard of them.

Ruben Musquets, his wife Diana Loretani and their 15 year old daughter had returned home from collecting the mail when they saw in the distance, above a hill on the rim of a valley, a large and very bright object of a mainly bluish colour, which fluctuated momentarily to red and orange. From its top part a beam of light was directed upwards obscuring as view of the top of the object, but its lower part was circular and convex. The thing was 10-15m diameter. At one point it shone a beam directly at the family. It then dropped down vertically and was hidden by the hill, though they could still see the glow for some minutes afterwards and they had the impression that it had landed. They then encountered a son of one of their farm labourers lying dazed. He reported that his horse had shied as the object had gone overhead.

While walking along the beach on this rainy evening, Denis Crowe, a man with experience as a technical illustrator, became aware of a glow on the beach ahead. It came from a disc shaped object, 6m diameter, 2.7m thick resting on four legs. Its rim was glowing green-blue while its top and bottom halves were a dull silver-grey. On the top was a sort of hollow which may have been a glass dome, but no other openings were visible. As Denis got within 15m of the machine, it took off at high speed, emitting a noise like air escaping from a balloon and a yellow-orange glow from the underside. It travelled horizontally for about 10-16m, then climbed rapidly towards Manly, disappearing in ten seconds. As it took off, dogs on the beach that had been barking furiously at it calmed down. A geologist investigated the site and found traces and dying vegetation.

Adilon Batista Azavade (15) was walking to the cinema with two friends aged 14 and 17 when they saw an intense light “hidden behind a cloud” at 500m. The light took the form of a cone focused on a spot c 10m diameter. It was much stronger than a car’s headlight and almost solid, and descended with a humming sound. Adilon’s friends hurried on to see the film, but he was curious decided to stay behind. The light descended until it came to rest 40-50m away. He could now make out a dark, egg shaped object, reflecting the street lamps, hovering at 1m. It was about 3m long, 1.5m wide, the beam of light underneath still directed towards the ground. After three minutes a second egg shaped craft appeared, descending in a similar fashion, hovering 3m from the first, and was slightly smaller. From the larger end of the first craft, emerged two entities, 1.5m tall, with a kind of luminous helmet on their heads which prevented him seeing facial features. They moved in a human fashion and talked in husky voices in an unknown language.

To get closer Adilon crept round and crouched behind a stone well wall. He then realised that three beings had emerged from the second craft and that the 5 were now talking as a group. One of the newcomers walked around with a brilliantly luminous object “like a wand” in his hand. The first group then walked 3 times around their craft, bowed and entered it. Seconds later the humming increased, and it rose vertically at great speed, the light underneath being visible for 5-6 seconds before being lost among the stars. The occupants of the second craft seemed to take no notice of this, and continued talking for several minutes before entering their craft with the same ritual. Adilon joined his friends at the cinema, but they laughed at him, until a sudden, violent headache made him leave to get aspirin. The headache lasted for five days and a doctor prescribed tables for this and for “agitation of the heart”.

Investigating he found, in a clearing, chromium coloured, egg shaped thing, standing on metallic legs. Its top part was transparent and its lower part extremely smooth, with no joins or sutures.

Beside the thing stood a young looking man with blond hair, dressed in a diving suit apparently made of a plas5ic material, with small boots. The stranger had a sort of briefcase attached to his right leg and appeared to be so engrossed in studying a piece of paper that Ramon was able to get right up the object and look in through a porthole. Inside he saw a second man seated at an instrument panel. At this point the man outside noticed him and approached with an angry expression. Ramon asked him what the matter was but the stranger just re-entered the thing without answering. The thing rose at once to s height of 30m and then moved off in level flight.

The Musquets then invited them to come and see for themselves, which they agreed to do. Arriving at the Musquets’ home, the party beheld an object resembling a shining cigar, twice the apparent diameter of the full moon, with a black band around it. For some 10 seconds the object remained stationary above the horizon. It then descended for threes seconds, rose again for 4 and then finally plunged into the ravine. The glow from the object was visible in the ravine for some time before it faded away.

While in bed at home or in his office (it is not clear which) Mr Alva an employee at the Juan Carrozo Hydroelectric Plant, r 40km inland from Lima, heard a strange bubbling noise outside. Looking out of the window he saw a small object that reminded him of a tank, 3-4m wide, only 12m away. The thing was glowing brilliantly, with little windows in the upper part, which reminded him of Swiss Cheese. Around the edge of this object were greenish lights, which went on and off, and on top was a kind of turret, which rotated continuously and from which came a projection that surveyed the area. After he had watched the object for some time, the arm retracted and the object began to move along the ground to the right. It took off slowly at first and then at high speed. At this point Alva called to his fellow workers. Investigators found dark triangular marks, 30cm in diameter at the site, in the plant garden.

Two long distance lorry drivers found an upturned car and a woman lying unhurt beside it. The car was buckled on one side, and the paint on the other had lost its sheen. They could make out no way that the car could have got into its position. The woman pointed to her throat and indicated that she had lost the use of her voice. In hospital she wrote that a large round object, with a ring of light and red beams, followed her and then appeared in front of her car. It was about 10m diameter and from it came shocks that shook her whole body. She then lost consciousness. She never recovered her power of speech but believed that a whirlwind had struck her car.

A short while later, looking in the same direction, he saw a small man like being about 200m away, standing on top of the slope looking straight down on him. After a while, the being, barely 1m tall, with the head and shoulders of a strong man, began to walk towards the witness, tottering for a few steps them walking with firm strides. The witness was paralysed. The being had a carrot red face and was wearing a skin tight green suit which covered his body. The little man then turned and moved in the direction of a bog where he disappeared. The being was also seen by this witnesses friend but not by Tapani Kuningas who was standing only 10m from the main witnesses, who felt unable to draw Kuningas’s attention to the being and could not bring himself to talk about the incident for some months, and it was only then that he found out his friend had also seen the creature

Two young police officers, Dave Lowe and Eddie Roberts, were on patrol when they heard a police radio report about two objects moving in a southerly direction toward Wellington, South Haven and Caldwell. They headed towards the airport on the eastern edge of town where they saw two vague objects in the sky, which objects quickly disappeared. Soon afterwards another report came in of an object north of Caldwell. At first the pair could see nothing but then Dave saw a light like headlights behind a rise in the ground about 30m away. He jumped onto the dashboard for a better look. He saw a brilliant egg shaped light 90m long, with white, red and blue-green lights, which merged and blended. When the officers regained their composure they pursued the object, pulling east on Highway 81, where the thing went behind a hedgerow and disappeared. When they revisited the spot in the morning no traces were visible. The observation had lasted 3 minutes. Shortly before this Dave had heard an engine sound like an aircraft but no aircraft was seen.

He braked hard as an aerial object swooped down to within 6m (or 60cm)of the road, not more than 30m ahead of him., after passing over his truck with a sizzling sound. As Don’s truck stopped the object rose up a bit, slowly took off to the west and then headed south. It was in view for more than 20 seconds and despite his fright Don was able to see that it was circular, about 4-4.5m diameter, orange coloured, like the reflector jackets worn by highway repair men, 60cm thick, with a hump, 1.2m thick at the centre, on which was a dark spot resembling a window. The whole thing gave the impression of a saucer with a cup in the middle. From the object, flashing red rays were emitted. A car coming in the opposite direction had swerved around the object and the driver began to speak to Don. Before he could say much the object emitted blue sparks from its underside and took off making a sound like the wind rustling the trees. Don and the other driver drove away at high speed. Doe was so afraid that he was pale and his hands were trembling when he was interviewed by a reporter. He had reported the matter to the police but nothing came of that.

A gynaecologist and two industrialists were visiting the breeding stables of some friends, and were walking, discussing financial matters, horse breeding etc, when their attention was caught by a brilliant flash of light in the sky. This resolved itself into a ball slowly descending and approaching. They thought it was a helicopter of some kind, until it was at a height of 100m, when they saw it was a huge discoid apparatus, emitting a brilliant yellow glow, with a round dark patch underneath. The only sound was a peculiar penetrating hum in their ears. Swaying slowly, the machine descended to within 1.5 m of the ground, some 30m away. From the underside of the machine (27m diameter), a shaft of light shone out and contacted the ground. In it descended 2 beings 2.1-2.4m tall, with shoulder length yellow hair, large penetrating eyes and dressed in seamless, metallic one piece suits. As the beings halted 3m away, the trio seemed to hear voices in their heads. In response to questions put by the gynaecologist, a typical series of absurd answers were heard as if by telepathy.

What they were looking at was an unknown object resting on the golf course about a block and a half away. The object blinked black and white, revealing a transparent circular shape in which the vague silhouettes of small figures could be seen moving about. Three men, strangers to the girls, were also observing the phenomenon, and said that they had been watching it for about 30 minutes, and had seen it descend from the sky. The girls went to Miss Evansen’s house to call the police, but when they arrived the object had gone. One of the men had run towards it, but it seemed that he couldn’t get any closer, then the object seemed to explode with a “bang and a noise”.

It descended at parachute speed behind a tree lined hill, the sound then stopping. David began walking towards the site, an abandoned quarry, across a ploughed field, when about 15m from the site, he saw “a being or some object” behind a tree on the top of the hill. This being appeared to 90cm-1.15m tall and bald, but only the head and left shoulder were visible. David had to look down to recover his balance and when he looked up again the being was gone. A few moments later he saw a blur and heard a rush of air. Nothing was to be seen where the being had stood but about 12m south of the tree, at the northern bluff of the quarry, he found a circular area of charred grass 4.5-6m diameter , the grass outside of which was green and healthy. Inside the circle were 3 indentations 2.5cm deep, 12.5cm wide, 30cm long.

It was surrounded by orange lights, which weakened as a blue light source came on, very intense, for about 3 seconds. All the lights disappeared when the thing was about 700m away. This was followed by a sort of shockwave effect and tree leaves were shaken. Leonard went in and called the Air Force. Twenty minutes later his vision became hazy and his eyes were painful.

Five people travelling in a car saw a blinding light and heard a low hum. Their car stalled as an object giving off a white light landed on the road in front of them. The light changed red, green, yellow from time to time, after a while dimming so they could see that the craft was lead coloured, 3m high and occupying the whole width of the road, only 3-4m ahead of their car. Three of the people in the car fainted, the other two sat petrified. The craft was illuminated by a green light inside, allowing them to see human looking beings moving about and moving their arms. Suddenly numerous bursts of red-yellow flame shot from the side of the machine, as it rose to 1m above the road, the terrific mum starting again, before it vanished straight upwards

While driving in the vicinity of Cumancoa, Dr Silva Guillan of that town, President of the Sugar refining Corporation, was alerted by his niece, who reported a flaming meteor had passed over their car. Looking out, he saw what he first thought was a bush fire, but then realised were flames projected towards the ground by a circular metallic looking object hovering 3-5m above the ground. Guillan stopped and went to investigate, only to return as his wife and niece panicked as the object started to come towards them. The disc paced the car for a short time and then sped out of sight.

Several workers at a house saw a glowing oval object manoeuvre over the reservoir in the Carrizal Hills. It hovered momentarily over the water with a wobbling motion, flew towards the house and landed briefly on the grass. When the thing neared the ground it extended several stilt like protuberances to the ground. These legs were then drawn up into the object again, which gave off an intense light and disappeared. This activity was also observed by people driving on the highway, one of whom reported his car engine malfunctioned while the object was in sight.

Two student brothers, Yago and Payo Rodriguez saw a luminous disc surmounted by a cupola land in an open field near the Mexican National Polytechnic Institute. The landing gear was a large tripod and the machine had a sort of radiator on the underside which burned the surrounding grass as it touched down. From the craft emerged 2 small beings about 80cm tall, wearing gas masks. They left a strange piece of metal on the ground, re-entered their craft, which then took off. Journalists and staff members of the Institute examined the site, where burned grass, marks of a tripod and some oily residue were found. The metal was taken to the Institute for analysis but no results were known.

Harold Butcher (16), who had left school to work on the farm for his ill father, was milking the cows whilst listening to the end of a newscast on his transistor when his attention was attracted by the bellowing of a young bull tethered in the field outside. At about this time static developed on the radio and the tractor that ran the milking machine stopped. Looking through the window, Harold saw bending the pipe to which it was tethered , in panic and then saw an oval object hovering just above tree level about 140m from the barn. It was silver-chrome in colour, 15m wide, 6m thick, with two vertical seams and with apparent rivets along the sides. When it moved vertically a red vapour was emitted from around its bottom and when it moved horizontally a yellowish trail appeared from one of the sides. . The object descended behind a large maple tree, but an elevation prevented Harold seeing whether it landed or not. The thing emitted a loud beeping sound.
Harold ran out towards this object, but as he reached the bull, about 15-25m from the thing, the object rose up to 3m as the sound rose in pitch and a band of vapour 1.25m thick came from it and was then sucked inside. The object then shot up into the clouds in an instant, making an explosion like dynamite or a sonic boom and leaving a luminous green glow. Harold then ran home, explaining what he had seen. He returned with his brother Robert in time just to see a vapour trail. Other members of the family did not see anything. Mrs Butcher called the state police, but before they could arrive a girl staying at the farm, Kathleen Brougham, ran in saying the object was back. With Harold, Robert and William Jnr they went outside where they saw a green light giving off a yellow vapour trail in the clouds over 200m away. When state troopers investigated a pungent odour was noticed, two of the children developed stomach trouble and the cows’ milk yield declined. An investigation by Captain James Dorsey and other officials of Niagara AFB uncovered an oily liquid at the site, where the grass and foliage was burned, and there were small impressions in the ground, 5cm wide and 5cm deep. Some of the soil was analysed by NICAP showed the liquid contained iron, aluminium and silicon, with some phosphorous.

Mrs Thelma E Schumaker, visiting her mother, Mrs W H Blackman, was awakened by a loud humming noise and air currents hitting the house and a pine tree outside. She got up and tried to call her husband, but found that she was unable to speak or move. After an effort she made it to the window, drew back the shades and looked out to the north east. Rising at an angle, north-south was a vertical luminous cigar shaped object, which moved up and down, sideways and then disappeared behind some trees of the highway. During the manoeuvres the object narrowly avoided hitting a spruce and some telephone wires. The next day her husband found a 15cm band of crushed grass in a perfect circle, 3.6m diameter, the drive covered with leaves from a line of oak trees, the leaves on the trees being in disarray, a hole was found in the roof of the house, and a high background count of radiation was noted. Thelma suffered from migraine for several days after the incident.

He dismounted and saw that the object was descending slowly, in a semicircle at 500m. It then touched down gently on a beach area about 400m away. It was an elongated vehicle 5m diameter at the centre, 2.5m away. Around it was a sort of visor underneath which were several windows. From a hatchway which seemed to open slowly, a man of normal height, dressed like a pilot, but with a suit which covered the whole of his body, and which gave off luminous sparkles, emerged, walked a metre or so, then returned to the craft. The hatch closed and the object took off with a spiralling motion and a howling noise. When the Hatch was open Zuk heard what sounded like soft music.

He saw that it was disc shaped with three spheres underneath. A gangway descended from the object and a large being emerged from it, gliding over the lake towards Daniel, who fell down on his knees and wet himself in terror. He tried to speak to the stranger in German, French and English but got no reply. It motioned to him to stay still. A visor in its helmet opened showing the being’s large eyes and static pupils. It then started to revolve and then glided back to the craft, the spheres on the underside started to move towards each other with a noise like a steam turbine and changing colour pink-orange –faint blue. It turned on its side again and disappeared at an “unnatural” speed, leaving behind smoke and a smell of burning. He reported the matter to the Air Force and a UFO organisation.

Fearing a burst tyre she began to slow down, only to have the sensation that the car, with her in it, was being lifted several centimetres above the ground. At the same time, a small neon type light appeared for several seconds a few centimetres from the right of her windscreen. It was a solid, non-dazzling tube shaped luminosity, 4cm in diameter, 70cm long, with well -defined edges and slightly covered on the top. During the 3-4 seconds that the light was present the car seemed to be floating on the current of air. After the light had disappeared, the car again made a contact with the ground 50m further on. Nothing further could be seen and Mr V in his car had seen nothing. A few hours after the incident Mrs V noticed a rash on the outside of her wrist, which was two finer widths wide, composed of red, blue and black pin head sized spots, which itched.

Near a field, between two houses, a huge object about 25m in diameter, with brilliant red pulsating lights around its rim, descended silently and slowly towards him, coming so close that he had to lie on the hard shoulder of the road. The object then backed off, allowing him to get to a house, then, when he had no response there, persuade a motorist tie drive him into Exeter, where he contacted police in a distraught state. He returned to Kensington with Patrolman Eugene Bertrand, and walked across the field to the Carl Dining corral. While looking around there, they noticed that the horses were becoming agitated, and that rising from the trees beyond the corral was a brilliant circular object, which approached with a fluttering leaf motion, bathing the entire area in a brilliant red light. They raced back tie the car, where Bertrand radioed in, as the object hovered at 30m altitude, a “football field” away, with a rocking motion, its red lights pulsating left to right, then right to left, in a two second cycle, the lights being too brilliant for any definite shape to be mad out. The thing then began to move away, in an erratic motion, towards Hampton. At this point patrolman David Hunt arrived on the scene to see the thing moving slowly above the trees with a rocking motion and to hear to commotion among the animals.

Chief Deputy William E “Billy” McCoy and Patrol Deputy Robert Goode of Angleton were driving back to West Columbia after visiting a high school football match at Sweeny, through the small town of Damon when Billy drew Robert’s attention to a purple light on the horizon. Robert did not pay much attention, concentrating on driving and rather preoccupied by a painful alligator bite on his left index finger, and considered them to be normal local lights. However after they saw the lights rise up, and a smaller blue light emerge from the general purple, Robert agreed to drive closer to investigate. Moments after they turned round the lights seemed to race towards them, stopping about 50m from the highway at 30m altitude. The purple and blue lights could now be seen to be on opposite sides of a vaguely cigar shaped grey object, 60m long and 12-15m thick. The purple light itself was the same thickness as the object, rectangular and pulsating with a brilliant mass of small lights, as bright as a welder’s arc. The blue light was of similar shape but much less prominent.

The purple light lit up the countryside and the interior of the car and Robert, who had been holding his wounded hand out of the open window, noticed distinct warmth coming from this light. This so unnerved him that he drove away at speeds up to 175kph. As he did so the object “snapped back” to the horizon and then took off at 20 degrees with a tremendous flash of light. After some time Billy persuaded him to return to the scene, but as they did so the light reappeared above the horizon and Robert drove off back to Angleton. He then realised that his finger had ceased to hurt and, taking off his plaster, saw that the swelling had gone down and could now move his finger with ease. According to some reports two strangers appeared looking for Robert and on finding him in a local restaurant described the object, which they said was a craft running on magnetic rays and that if he encountered it or its occupants again he should cooperate and remain quiet.

Antonio Pau Ferro (45), a peasant farmer, was working in his maize field when he heard a rushing, whistling noise. Turning round he saw 2 luminous discs, 1.5m wide, 60cm thick, slowly landing somewhat down hill, stopping 30cm above the ground. They then shot up to about 5m, leaving below them 2 small beings 70-80cm tall who had apparently emerged from them. The dwarfs were humanoid, well proportioned, with red brown “waxen” complexions and normal eyes, and wore one piece garments. Ferro clutched onto a tree in terror as the creatures approached, but, apparently sensing his terror, they walked away, talking in an incomprehensible language. They turned around again, smiled at Ferro, edging towards him again, examining a tomato plant and sampling the fruit. But they soon turned away again, the discs descended over them, then shot up again with a high pitched whistle. The beings had gone. He told a neighbour, Mr O. G. de Rocha of his experience, and this man testified to Ferro’s extreme terror.

Engineer Paul Green (28) was motorcycling home to West Mersea from seeing his fiancée in Colchester on this clear bright night. As he approached the straight road south to Langenhoe Hall he heard a high pitched humming to the east, which grew louder. He saw a point of light 8km over Brightlingsea, which light he realised was approaching. The humming became a high pitched buzz and then, as Paul realised it came from the light, his motorcycle engine and lights went out. The blue flashing light spun into view from about 1,5km away, and he now saw that it was part of an enormous object resembling a half top, about the size of a gasometer. It was surmounted by a dome, from inside of which a blue light was flashing. The object descended, slowly tilting to reveal an underside rimmed by numerous round objects. Paul dismounted and walked a few paces towards the thing, but then felt paralysed, unable to move or speak, as the flashing blue light became painfully intense and appeared to fluctuate in rhythm with his heartbeat, hitting against his chest. He felt himself tingling all over as if from electric shocks. The buzzing then became quieter as the object descended towards Wick.

Just then a scooter, which he had earlier overtaken in his journey, arrived on the scene, its engine failing also. Paul’s head began to throb and he managed to push his bike away from the scene. After a while the engine started up again, the object was now hidden by the hedges, though the blue glow still lit up the sky. Paul arrived home in a state of shock and the following day he noticed his body was charged with static electricity. A friend, who lived 8km north-west of Wick reported that his dog commenced to bark at this time and looking out he saw a blue glow in the sky. Paul was later approached by two men who warned him not to speak of the incident.

Two constables, Koos de Klerk and John Lockem, were out on patrol in their van. They were returning home after making enquiries at a farm when they saw what looked like “a sea of flames” in the road ahead and their van engine stalled. The flames were surrounding a copper coloured, circular, top shaped object, about 10m diameter. As they watched, the thing shot up from the road and they saw that the flames came from two openings in its underside. It rose vertically and then moved away to the North West. The road showed evidence of heat in an area 1.8m diameter. However it was probable that this damage was caused by burning petrol. There was an investigation by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research.

Geoffrey Maskey (25), Michael Johnson (22) and Mavis Forsyth were parked in Walton Avenue, when Johnson suddenly left the car. The other two waited for him for some minutes, then heard a high pitched humming sound. Mavis was terrified, but Maskey looked through the car window to see an oval, orange object about 1.8m long at 30m altitude, lighting up the lane with its glow. As the object disappeared behind trees the noise was heard again. Maksey reversed the car down the lane and as he did so Johnson stumbled from the hedge and collapsed in the road. They took him to Felixstowe Hospital where he recovered in a state of shock, with burn marks on the back of his neck, and a bump under the skin below his right ear. He was transferred to Ipswich Hospital, then discharged the next evening. He told his friends that some force seemed to have pulled him from the car and that he had seen a fiery being pointing at him.

The called their neighbours <r and Mrs Arthur Turner, who watched the latter part of the display.

About 30 minutes after the start of the above experience, Giles Brown and his wife of Route 1 were watching TV in their trailer home when the set developed severe interference and they heard a loud roaring noise outside. Through their living room window they saw a grey hulk, with a ring of blue lights around its rim, hovering 6m above the ground. The thing appeared to be Saturn shaped, 3m diameter at the centre. After a few minutes the blue lights went out and a red flame, like a rocket, came from the bottom and the object flew off to the south.

George began to accelerate from 80-130kph to get ahead of the lights, which they now realised were at between 10-15m altitude and moving northwards in the same direction as themselves, about a city block away. The lights got close enough to illuminate the car, and after three minutes the lights went over the car, then changed colour to light blue before separating, one going south-east, and the other north-east.

The witness, who wished to remain anonymous, was returning home from work when he noticed a strange object in a hay field near his home, and stopped his car to observe it. It was shaped somewhat like an upside down bowl, 13.5 diameter, about 6m high and seemed to be dull silver in colour. In the upper part of the object were three evenly spaced portholes, from which soft lights of varying colour could be seen. Behind one porthole dark shadows could be seen moving about, but no definite form could be made out. The object seemed to rest a short distance above the ground on 8-10 beams of light, through which the trees could be seen. After a while the witness went to get his wife, and when they returned the object was still in the same position. He was going to investigate further but his frightened wife urged him not to, and as he shut the car door, the object made a rushing sound and started to rise. As it did so, the light beams contracted, and they were able to see that the bottom was the same colour as the rest of the object, except for a darker circle 3m diameter. Returning to the scene the next day, he found a metal disc 501.5mm diameter, 1.6mm thick, with a whole in the centre and 8 small holes on its surface. He kept this object in his backyard and shed until 1974, when it was analysed by investigators, and was shown to be a stainless steel alloy, around a seal.

Annabelle Randall, secretary of the Warminster and District Trades Council was driving her fiancee, John Plowman of Stockton, a union official, home, when they nearly collided with a figure lying feet first in the road. Investigating to see if he was injured, they found nothing. Returning home at 0025 hours at the same spot Annabelle saw a bright orange glow adjacent to the railway embankment, coming from a large orange ball. At this point the car engine started to misfire, the headlights dimmed and flickered and a force seemed to be slowing the car down. Just beyond the Havant road junction she encountered an unlit circular machine on the other side of the road to the fiery ball-which prevented her from seeing clearly and cast a sort of fog on the road. This glowing object then moved across the road, her engine stopping completely. The sphere seemed to be spinning and giving off red and blue lights before accelerating into the sky, leaving a trail. In front of her appeared two figures wearing light woollen balaclava helmets and dark, tight, shiny suits, like frogmen. The car engine had now started up again, and she nearly ran the figures down as the car accelerated away.

William Hertzke was riding on the Circle Jay Ranch, North West of Cochran, looking for cattle which might be hidden in the bushes, when his horse shied and in the distance he saw a metallic looking object, glinting in the sunlight. He approached close to the thing, which was up on a bluff. He within 3.5m of the thing, which resembled an aircraft with swept back wings, but less than 5m long, with a wing span of about 3.5m, and about 1.5m deep. The exterior of its sides was made of a waffle like material, with a plane silver grey bottom and top, a dome that appeared to be made of Plexiglas, through which he could see a sort of control panel and two small transparent bucket seats. At the rear of the cockpit were three steps and a door leading to a cabin. There was a door 60cm wide, 90cm high leading into the craft, and its nose was about 45cm above the ground. He was said to have passed a lie detector test undertaken by APRO.

Jose Camilho Jnr, a 56 year old mechanic, rounded a bend and saw what he thought were two young children sitting on the stump of a fallen banana tree. He was about to tell them off for messing up their clothes when they jumped up. He now saw that they were only 80-90cm tall, with brown shrivelled and furrowed complexions, like old people. Their hair was white, their heads large in proportion to their bodies and round, with disproportionately large slit eyes. One of the dwarfs had a sparse beard, and wore a dark peaked cap, the other was bare headed. Both had white hands or gloves, and one was carrying a rod about 50cm long, the thickness of an electric torch. When this being saw Jose he appeared to be extremely startled and made as if to go for this devise.. His companion, who wore a blue shirt like garment, green trousers and what looked like tennis shoes, was much less startled. His suite was made of some shiny material, and on the upper part of his chest he wore a belt or shield from shoulder to shoulder, from which flashed out vivid blue, red, yellow and green lights as bright as an electric welding kit, and too bright to look at. Between the dwarfs stood a cylinder 1.2m tall, 15cm diameter and the man with the belt grabbed it by its centre handle, and began running off, staggering under the weight and nearly colliding with his companion, so that both nearly fell over. Jose fled also, but looked back in time to see them vanishing among the trees. Two local residents reported that about this time they had seen a light flying overhead.

James F Townsend (19) a radio announcer on Station KEYL, a religious man and a teetotaller was driving west on Highway 27 about 8.5km west of Long Prairie. As he turned a corner he had to brake hard to avoid hitting an object sitting on the road about 400m away. The 1956 car halted about 6m from the object, the car’s engine, lights and radio all failed and could not be restarted. The object was a vertical cylinder like a rocket standing 8-12m tall, looming above the trees. It was 3m in diameter and standing on three fins or legs. From the bottom of this object a bright light was emitted which lit up the countryside. Townsend felt that he could knock the object over and jumped out of his car to try. As he approached the object he could seen neither markings nor openings, and that it had a top which resembled that of a ball point pen. He now found his way blocked by three “robots” and size of beer cans (about 15cm tall), brown-black in colour, with matchstick limbs or fins but no other distinguishing features. When they stopped a third fin seemed to come down. Despite their lack of eyes Townsend had the feeling that they were looking at him. After what seemed like an eternity the creatures scurried, with a sideways gait. into the ship. The light built up under the craft, a humming noise, which hurt his ears, came on, then it took off, lighting up the area like daylight. When the object was airborne the light was switched off. The car engine now started up by itself. Sheriffs confirmed that Townsend was in a state of extreme terror. Several local residents saw unusual objects and lights in the sky. Three parallel strips of an oil like material were found at the spot by Police Officer Lavern Lubitz.

They observed the vague shape of the an object settling to earth 200m ahead of them, across the road from the cemetery north west of Upham. This object emitted a yellow light, and then an antenna, with a soft glowing tip, slowly emerged. The object was about 4m in diameter, with window like shadows running along its length. It was resting on tripod legs and lights flashed from the “windows”. After about 30 seconds the thing slowly rose straight up, hovered briefly, turned at a right angle and sped away. They replaced a broken fuse in the car and went to the spot, where they found impressions in the soft ground. Police confirmed three impressions in the ground, spread in a triangular shape, each about 30cm in diameter. In the centre was a hole 20cm in diameter.

The boy in the top bunk reached out to pull the curtains back when he received a kind of electric shock. He tried again and looking out the boys could see an oval object 4.5m diameter, sitting between their house and a neighbour’s less than 2m away. Beside the object was a being about 2.1m tall, which was pounding against the side of the house. Unable to rouse the rest of the family, the boys attempted to communicate with the being through “telepathy”, the hum of the craft speeding up in answer to mentalised questions. After an hour a Morse code like sounded ended the communication, though the being seemed to indicate they would return. Next day a dark smudge was found on the wall where the being had pounded. The case was not investigated for a month as the family concerned were respectable business people who wanted no publicity, but even so the investigators’ compass was disturbed in the area. The boys who had been very adventurous now refused to go out alone.

After several low level sightings on the farm of Dario Anhaua Jnr, a landowner and chemist, on this day, after her husband had gone into town on some business with the mayor, Mrs Anhaua saw a strange light. Despite her fear she walked to the farm gate, followed by her grandson. There she could see an object sitting on the ground in a nearby field, two small humanoid beings standing beside it. One of them began to walk up and down among the furrows of the field, picking up twigs etc which he carried in his arms. His companion stood by the fence as if watching the mare on the other side. When a truck load of noisy people passed by the object left, one of the beings entering it up a green coloured tube which had appeared on the side. When the truck had gone the object returned and the collecting continued. Another car passed and the object moved and switched off its light so that Mrs Anhaua could see two similar objects hovering in the sky. After the object landed again one of the dwarfs turned on a green light which came from an object the size of a drinking glass and an explosion was then heard. The object and dwarfs then left.
After this event Mr Anhaua arranged a vigil with friends, including the bank manager two days later. Again at 2100 the object came in, its arrival noted by the sheriff and his clerk who were driving nearby. It landed 120m from the fence separating the field from the yard. The bank manager became so exited he dropped his camera so no pictures could be taken. They could see that the beings were the size of 7 year old children. One was wearing overalls, the other chocolate coloured pants and a grey colourless shirt. A third being, who had a square flat head, appeared to be wearing a surgeon’s apron. The craft and the three dwarfs all glowed brilliantly. They continued with their gathering task, and as they did so, Anhaua was able to call a neighbouring farm, and some guards and the parish priest Father Longino Vartbinden arrived as additional witnesses. After the beings had finished their gatherings, they re-entered the machine which took off at high speed. The beings came within 20m of the witnesses.

As it came closer it resolved itself into an elliptical object with transparent windows, which landed vertically. A short time later three humanoid beings wearing what looked like long hats emerged from the craft. They had generally human appearances and seemed to be “a perfect synthesis” of all races. They spoke in an incomprehensible language, but Mudachi understood that they were not hostile and wanted to take his photograph. To get him to agree they first photographed his brother, then another witness. Mudachi now agreed to be photographed and was placed on a platform, where there was an instrument resembling a bird cage. From this instrument there came a white light, like sunlight, and from a red bulb at the centre a sort of powerful ray was emitted, aimed at his chest. It seemed to hit his heart and he found himself coughing and fighting for breath. Suddenly the beings left, without him seeing how. After the incident he fell into a deep dreamless sleep.

The next day Lozano saw that there was a large circular, curved, forked impression in the alfalfa, which was burnt. There was also a burnt circle, 5m diameter at the spot where the luminous circle had been seen.

Commercial traveller Ian Hann (29) of Montacute was driving on the bath-Stroud road, 6.5km from bath, when he was overtaken by an unlighted vehicle “like a built in land rover with a solid roof”, with no windows on the side or back. It was travelling at over 95kph. Ian switched on his spotlight when the thing had passed; saw that it had no rear lights, reflections or number plates, only two green flashing lights on the roof. Ian gave chase for 3km, at which there was an ear piecing whine, forcing him to cove his ears, and then the strange object stopped and was enveloped in yellow smoke. When the smoke had vanished, the object had disappeared without trace. Ian examined the spot and found himself shaking with fear.

December 9 1965. Afternoon.
Richard Hoglund (52) a rock blaster, was taking a walk by the frozen Lake Grindhultsjon when his dog started acting up. Altered by a whirring sound Richard looked up to see a translucent disc, 5m diameter, with figures inside, spiralling towards the ground. It hovered just above the ice and a tube descended, from which four beings floated down and approached Richard. There were three men and a woman dressed in transparent overalls, one was older than the others. They had dark, slanted eyes and large pointed ears and the men appeared extremely muscular. Through their transparent suits, Richard could see that they had no body hair. They communicated through gestures and healed his kidneys with an instrument they passed along his back. Richard later became a contactee and became part of some sort of cult.

Charlie Jones was driving home from Sheridan, south along the Lamong Road on this overcast day, when he saw, below a low patch of fog like cloud, a white light about 20m above the ground, travelling north about 45-60m west of the road. As the light descended through the fog Jones kept watch on it. Soon he saw it was a solid object 2.1-2.4m diameter, with two landing protrusions, and two other protrusions, one on either side. The fuselage of the craft was made of a greenish-brown coarse material. There was a transparent front, and about 1.2-1.5m back from that, the craft began tapering to a point. Midway on the slope was a tripod with a flashing red light. Through the transparent front section Jones could see an occupant. At first he could not see any features but as the object moved away, he saw the profile of a face dominated by a huge eye, which seemed to occupy much of the temple, with a huge elongated brown-bronze eyeball, three times the size of a man’s with a solid brown pupil. The being had a “stern and intelligent” countenance, a wide nose, flared nostrils, protruding lips, jowl shaped large and fleshy jaws, with a great slant from his chin to his forehead and bronze skin. He appeared to be wearing a one piece sturdily textured overall suit, which covered his ears and hair. Jones felt the being was at least 1.8m tall. Before he lost sight of the occupant he noticed that its expression had become apprehensive. The extraordinary nature of the incident only struck him when the object had passed. Jones had had a number of other ufo and psychic experiences.

Many people, including police commissioner Regino Jaine, saw a large dazzling, luminous sphere, the colour of which kept varying between blue and orange. Travelling at enormous speed, it passed over so low that it almost touched the ground. The commissioner’s son was blinded and struck dumb for a while as a result of the effect it had on him.

Edward Bruns (15) was driving to his father’s farm in a pick-up truck, when he noticed an object hovering less than 2m above the road, some metres away, 8km west and 3km south of Herman. The disc shaped object covered the road and gave off a bright light, and as Bruns approached the thing, the engine and lights of his truck failed. At this point the object began to emit sparks, the interior began to glow red, and silhouetting a figure moving around inside, and the disc began to take off. As it did so, the truck seemed to rise up with it, though Bruns was too shocked to have any clear recollection. When he recovered his wits he found that the truck, which had been pointing west, was on the south side of the road, pointing north and was stuck in a ditch. Bruns ran home in a state of terror. He returned with his father, who found that the truck was struck in the snow. Next day his parents returned with a reporter, and all three confirmed the absence of tyre marks leading to the ditch. Bruns was so affected by the experience that he had to receive treatment for his heart condition.

An apparently solid object, the apparent size of an old penny at arm’s length, giving off a reddish-orange light was seen, near Bletchley, sometimes in motion, sometimes stationary. The object descended as if to land, and then moved upwards and away.
