--- begin intro ------------------------------------------------------- * Forwarded from "UFO" * Originally by Don Allen * Originally to All * Originally dated 20 Dec 1994, 18:22 Hi Folks, For those of you who are familiar with the works of Jacques Vallee, you will recognize the great efforts and achievement of Mr. Vallee of compiling a large database of UFO sightings reports in his book, "Passport to Magonia" (ISBN: 0-8092-3796-2). This database is comprised of 923 sightings, from the years 1868 to 1968, a century of UFO sightings. It has long been a goal of mine to scan in this database and make it freely available on the nets to anyone who has a genuine interest in UFOlogy. It has taken me the last several weeks to achieve this goal, scanning it in whenever I had the chance. My over-riding belief has been that as a resource, it's too valuable a contribution to UFOlogy to remain locked away in the dusty pages of a book. I would like to take this opportunity to publically thank John Powell, for his time, his feedback to me in netmail on this project and his dedicated efforts in working on the data analysis and search patterns on the database itself. Through his efforts, a veritable ream of valuable hard data has been produced in the form of time-study, bar-graph GIF graphics, regional analysis by state and country, analysis reports across a wide variety of search fields, and much much more. What John has brought forth is pretty awesome! In addition, John will be handling the bulk of the wider distribution to ParaNet, MufoNet, and Internet with the complete Part 1 package, which contains all the associated analysis and GIF files, which are too lengthy to post on the nets and echoes. So, I present this as a Christmas gift to all in cyberspace. Merry Christmas, folks! :-) Don Allen - Fido UFO Moderator --- FMail/386 0.98a * Origin: * On Topic?

A strange "aerial construction" bearing lights and making engine noises flew low over this town. Local people also described it as a giant bird covered with large scales producing a me- tallic noise. Although not an actual landing, this is the first instance of close observation of an unknown object at low altitude in the nineteenth century. (Fort 638; Anatomy 11) 2 Dec. 07, 1872 Banbury (Great Britain). At King's Sutton an object 0100 hours resembling a haystack flew on an irregular course. Sometimes high, sometimes very low it was accom- panied by fire and dense smoke. It produced the same effect as a tornado, felling trees and walls. It sud- denly vanished. (Fort 189) 3 1880 Aldershot (Great Britain). A strange being dressed in tight-fitting clothes and shining helmet soared over the heads of two sentries, who fired without result. The apparition stunned them with something de- scribed as "blue fire." (FSR 61, 3; Magonia) 4 May. 15, 1879 Persian Gulf. Two very large "wheels" were seen 2140 spinning in the air and slowly coming to the surface of the sea. Estimated diameter: 40 m. Distance be- tween the objects: 150 m. Speed: 80 km/h/ Duration: 35 min. Witnesses aboard the ship "Vultur" (Round up 17; Anatomy 12) 5 1880 Eastern Venezuela. A 14-year-old boy saw a luminous ball descending from the sky and hovering near him. He felt somehow "drawn" to it, but succeeded in backing away in spite of his terror. (Lor. III 2O6) 6 Mar. 26, 1880 Lamy (New Mexico). Four men walking near Galis- evening teo Junction were surprised as they heard voices com- ing from a "strange balloon," which flew over them. It was shaped like a fish and seemed to be guided by a large fanlike device. There were eight to ten figures aboard. Their language was not understood. The ob- ject flew low over Galisteo Junction and rose rapidly toward the east. (FSR 65, 3) 7 Jun. 11, 1881 Between Melbourne and Sydney at sea (Australia). 0400 The two sons of the Prince of Wales, one of them the future king of England, were cruising aboard "La Bacchante" when an object resembling a fully lighted ship was seen ("a phantom vessel all aglow"). (Fort 637; Anatomy 12) 8 Nov. 02, 1885 Scutari (Turkey). A luminous object circled the har- dawn bor. Altitude: 5-6 m. Illuminated the whole town. Duration: 1 1/2 min, as a bluish-green flame. Then plunged into the sea. Made several circles above the ferry-boat pier. (LDLN 48; Anatomy 14) 9 Nov. 12, 1887 Cape Race (Atlantic Ocean). A huge sphere of fire 2400 was observed rising out of the ocean by witnesses aboard the "Siberian." It rose to an altitude of 16 m, flew against the wind, and came close to the ship, then "dashed oft" toward the southeast. Duration: 5 min. (LDLN 48; Anatomy 14) 10 1896 Arolla, near Zermatt (Swiss Alps). Author Aleister Crowley was walking in the mountains when he sud- denly saw two little men. He made a gesture to them, but they did not seem to pay attention and disap- peared among the rocks. (Magic Without Tears, by A. Crowley) 11 Mar. 26, 1897 Sioux City (Iowa). Approximate date. Robert Hib- night bard was caught by an anchor dropped from an un- known flying machine 22 km north of the town. He was dragged over 10 m and fell as his clothes were torn. (FSR 66, 4) 12 Mar. 28, 1897 Omaha (Nebraska). The majority of the population 2230 observed an object arriving from the southeast. It looked like a huge light, flew northwestward slowly, came to low altitude. A crowd gathered at a street corner to watch it. (185) 13 Apr. 01, 1897 Everest (Kansas). The whole town saw an object fly 2100 under the cloud ceiling. It came down slowly, then flew away very fast to the southeast. When directly over the town it swept the ground with its powerful light. It was seen to rise up at fantastic speed until barely discernible, then to come down again and sweep low over the witnesses. At one point it re- mained stationary for 5 min at the edge of a low cloud, which it illuminated. All could clearly see the silhouette of the craft. (FSR 66, 4) 14 Apr. 12, 1897 Nilwood (Illinois). On the property of Z. Thacker, 19 1430 km north of Carlinville, an unknown object landed. Before the three witnesses could reach it, the craft, which was shaped like a cigar with a dome, rose slowly and left majestically toward the north. Witnesses: Edward Teeples, William Street and Franklin Met- calf. (186; Anatomy 12) 15 Apr. 12, 1897 Girard, near Green Ridge (Illinois). A large crowd of 1800 miners saw an unknown object land 3 km north of Green Ridge and 4 km south of Girard. The night operator of the Chicago-and-Alton Railroad, Paul Mc- Cramer, stated that he came sufficiently close to the craft to see a man emerge from it to repair the ma- chinery. Traces were found over a large area. The object itself was elongated like a ship with a roof and a double canopy. It left toward the north. (186,187) 16 Apr. 14, 1897 Gas City (Indiana). An object landed 2 km south of 1500 Gas City on the property of John Roush, terrifying the farmers and causing the horses and cattle to stampede. Six occupants of the ship came out and seemed to make some repairs. Before the crowd could approach the object, it rose rapidly and flew toward the east. (188) 17 Apr. 14, 1897 Cleveland (Ohio). Joseph Singler, captain of the "Sea Wing," was fishing with S. H. Davis, of Detroit, when they saw on the lake what they thought was a ship, about 13 m long, with a canopy. A man, about 25 years old, wearing a hunting jacket and a cap, was fishing from the deck of the object. Near him were a woman and a 10-year old child. When the "Sea Wing" came close to the craft, a large, colored bal- loon rose from the object, which flew up with it to an altitude of about 150 m and circled "like a hawk" before flying away. (189) 18 Apr. 15, 1897 Linn Grove (Iowa). A large object was seen to fly morning slowly toward the north. It seemed ready to land and five men (F. G. Ellis, James Evans, David Evans, Joe Croaskey, Benjamin Buland) drove toward it. About 7 km north of Linn Grove, they found the craft on the ground, came within 700 m of it but it "spread its four giant wings and rose towards the North." Two strange figures aboard the craft made efforts to con- ceal themselves. Witnesses were surprised at the length of their hair. Most residents of Linn Grove saw the craft in flight. (190) 19 Apr. 15, 1897 Howard-Artesian (South Dakota). A flying object nightfall coming closer and closer to the ground followed a train, as reported by the engineer, Joe Wright (FSR 66,4) 20 Apr. 15, 1897 Perry Springs (Missouri). A passenger train on the 2100 Wabash line, going toward Quincy, was followed by a low-flying object for 15 min between Perry Springs and Hersman. All the passengers saw the craft, which had a red and white light. After Hersman it flew ahead of the train and disappeared rapidly, although the train was then running at 65 km/h. (190) 21 Apr. 15, 1897 Springfield (Illinois). Two farm workers, Adolph Winkle and John Hulle, saw a strange craft in a field. They had a discussion with its occupants, a woman and two men, and were told the ship-had flown from Quincy to Springfield in 30 min and that the crew. was making electrical repairs. (FSR 65,1) 22 Apr. 16, 1897 Downs Township (Illinois). Approximate date. While working in his field, Haney Savidge saw an aerial craft land near him. Six people emerged from it and spoke to him for a few minutes before leaving again. (191) 23 Apr. 17, 1897 Williamston (Michigan). At least a dozen farmers morning saw an object maneuver in the sky for an hour before it landed. A strange man near 3 m tall, almost naked and suffering from the heat, was the pilot of the craft. "His talk, while musical, seemed to be a repeti- tion of bellowings." One farmer went near him and received a blow that broke his hip. (196) 24 Apr. 19, 1897 Leroy (Kansas). Alexander Hamilton was awakened 2230 by a noise among the cattle and went out with his son and his tenant. They saw an elongated cigar- shaped object, about 100 m long with a transparent cabin underneath showing narrow reddish bands, hovering 10 m above ground. They approached within 50 m of it. It was illuminated and equipped with a searchlight. Inside it were "six of the strangest be- ings" the witness had seen, also described as "hid- eous." They spoke a language no witness could understand. A cow was dragged away by the object with the help of a strong red cable; it was found butchered in a field the next day. (Anatomy 16; Ma- gonia) 25 Apr. 20, 1897 Homan (Arkansas). Capt. James Hooton was hunt- 1800 ing in the vicinity of Homan when he heard the noise of a steam engine and found an object in a clearing. It looked like a cylinder with pointed ends, lateral wheels, and horizontal blade over it. Hooton spoke with a man who wore dark glasses and walked behind the craft. There were three or four occupants. The witness was told this was indeed "The Airship" and that it used compressed air for propulsion. Hooton saw the wheels spin as the craft rose and flew away. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia) 26 Apr. 22, 1897 Rockland (Texas). John M. Barclay was intrigued when his dog barked furiously and a high-pitched noise was heard. He went out, saw a flying object circling 5 m above ground. Elongated with protru- sions and blinding lights, it went dark when it landed. Barclay was met by a man who told him his purpose was peaceful and requested some common hardware items to repair the craft. He paid with a ten-dollar bill and took off "like a bullet out of a gun." (192; Magonia) 27 Apr. 22, 1897 Josserand (Texas). Frank Nichols, who lived 3 km 2400 east of Josserand and was one of its most respected citizens, was awakened by a machine noise. Looking outside, he saw a heavy, lighted object land in his wheat field. He walked toward it, was stopped by two men who asked permission to draw water from his well. He then had a discussion with a half-dozen men, the crew of the strange machine. He was told how it worked but could not follow the explanation. (193; Magonia) 28 Apr. 23, 1897 McKinney Bayou (Arkansas). Judge Lawrence A. Byrne of Texarkana, Arkansas, was surveying a tract of land when he saw a peculiar object anchored on the ground. "It was manned by three men who spoke a foreign language, but judging from their looks one would take them to be Japs." (Farish, in Allende Letters (Award Special, 1968) ) 29 Apr. 25, 1897 Merkel (Texas). People returning from church ob- evening served a heavy object being dragged along the ground by a rope attached to a flying craft. The rope got caught in a railroad track. The craft was too high for its structure to be visible but protrusions and a light could be distinguished. After about 10 min a man came down along the rope cut the end free, and went back aboard the craft, which flew away toward the northeast. The man was small and dressed in a light- blue uniform. (194; Magonia) 30 Apr. 26, 1897 Aquila-Hillsboro (Texas). Approximate date. A law- yer was surprised to see a lighted object fly over. His horse was scared and nearly toppled the carriage. When the main light was turned off, a number of smaller lights became visible on the underside of the dark object, which supported an elongated canopy. It went down toward a hill to the south, 5 km from Aquila. When the witness was on his way back one hour later he saw the object rising. It reached the altitude of the cloud ceiling and flew to the northeast at a fantastic speed with periodic flashes of light. (195) 31 May. 06, 1897 Hot Springs (Arkansas). Two policemen, Sumpter and McLenore, were riding northwest of Hot Springs when they saw a bright light in the sky. About 7 km farther they saw the light again coming down to the ground. One km farther the horses refused to walk. Two men were seen carrying lights. The lawmen took their rifles, called the strangers, and were told that they crossed the country with a flying craft. The sil- houette of the machine, about 2O m long, could be seen in the clearing. There was a woman with an um- brella nearby. It was raining, and the younger of the men was filling a large container with water. The elder man had a beard and suggested that the policemen fly with them "to a place where it does not rain." The same witness went back through the same spot 40 min later and found nothing. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia) 32 Oct. 28, 1902 Gulf of Guinea. Three persons aboard the "Fort Salis- 0305 bury," including Second Officer A. H. Raymer, saw a huge, dark object bearing lights in the sea ahead. It was observed sinking slowly. Estimated length: 200 m. (Fort 641; Anatomy 20) 33 1904 Rolling Prairie (Indiana). Tom Darby, with his brother and mother, saw two whitish-blue objects about 400 m away, from a point situated 3 km north of Rolling Prairie. The objects hovered 2 or 3 m above ground, flew toward a barn, came closer to each other, and were hidden from view by a hill. (Hartle 164) 34 1908 Coast of Delaware. The English ship "Mohican," piloted by Capt. Urghart, was going to Philadelphia when it was surrounded by a thick, luminous cloud which "magnetized" everything on board. The com- pass was observed to swing wildly. When seamen tried to move some chains on the bridge, they found that they were glued to the metal floor. Suddenly the cloud rose and was seen above the sea for some time. (197) 35 Jun. 30, 1908 Podkamennaia Toungouska (USSR). Unexplained explosion in the taiga, equivalent to a thermonuclear blast, sometimes interpreted as the crash of an inter- stellar vehicle. (Anatomy 18; Challenge 99) 36 May. 18, 1909 Caerphilly (Wales). Mr. Lethbridge was walking 2300 along a road near the mountains when he saw on the grass a large tubelike machine. Aboard were two men wearing furs and talking excitedly in a language the witness could not understand. The grass was found depressed at the site after the object had flown off. (198; Anatomy 21) 37 Jun. 16, 1909 Donghoi (Annam). An elongated object following a 0410 west to east trajectory flew over the town. It gave off a strong light and was seen by two fishermen to plunge into the sea 6 km away from the coast, after a steady flight of about 9 min. (Anatomy 21) 38 Jan. 1910 Invercargill (New Zealand). Several witnesses - 2300 among them the vicar, the Mayor, and a policeman -saw a cigar-shaped object hovering at 30 m alti- tude. A man appeared at a lateral door and was heard shouting some words in an unknown language. The opening closed, and the object accelerated and was lost to sight. (Stuart 24) 39 Jun., 1914 Hamburg (Germany). Gustav Herwagen opened the 0400 door of his house and saw in a field a shining cigar- shaped object with illuminated windows. Near it were four or five dwarfs 1.20 m tall, clad in light clothing. He approached them, but they went aboard the ob- ject as soon as they appeared to be aware of his pres- ence. A door closed, and the craft took off silently, climbing vertically. (Nachrichten April, 62) 40 Aug., 1914 Georgian Bay (Canada). William J. Kiehl and seven other persons saw a spherical craft on the surface of the water. On its deck were two small men wearing green-purple clothes. They seemed to be busy with a hose, plunging it into the water. On the opposite side were three men dressed in light brown, wearing square masks down to their shoulders. Seeing the witnesses, they reentered the craft except for one dwarf, wearing shoes with a curved, pointed tip, who remained out- side while the craft rose 3 m above the water and shot upward, leaving a short trail. (199) 41 Aug. 21, 1915 Gallipoli (Turkey). During severe fighting in the Dardanelles a peculiar cloud engulfed a British regi- ment which was never seen again. This was observed by 22 men of the First Field Company, NZ Army Corps and stated in an affidavit. (Spaceview 45; LDLN 82; Magonia) 42 Oct., 1917 Youngstown (Pennsylvania). John Boback, 17, was walking along the railroad tracks between Youngs- town and Mt. Braddock when he saw a saucer-shaped object with a platform and rows of lights, sitting in a field 30 m to his left. He watched the object for 1-2 min until it took off with a high-pitched sound, rising gradually like a slow plane. Its size was that of an average car. The top of the object was a dome with elongated windows through which figures could be seen. (Hartle 157) 43 1921 Marseilles (France). Undocumented report of an "abduction" by two beings. (Quincy) 44 Feb. 22, 1922 Hubbell (Nebraska). William C. Lamb was follow- 0500 ing strange tracks when he heard a high-pitched sound and saw a circular object intercepting starlight. It became brilliantly lighted and landed in a hollow. Soon afterword, a creature over 2.4 m tall was seen flying from the direction where the object had landed. It left tracks in the snow, which Lamb followed with- out results. (Anatomy 22) 45 Sep. 09, 1922 Barmouth (Wales). John Morris and William James saw an object fall into the ocean so slowly that it was thought to be a plane. A boat was sent out, but nothing was found. (Fort 639) 46 Jun. 12, 1929 Fermeneuve (Canada). Levis Brosseau, 2O was re- 2300 turning home when he saw a dark object with a yellow light and his horse became very nervous. Within 6 m of the object four or five dwarfish figures were running back and forth. He heard their pointed, childlike voices, then saw the dark object take off with a ma- chinelike sound and a rush of air. Estimated size of object: 15 m diameter, 5 m high. (GEPA Dec., 68) 47 Jul., 1929 Robsart (Canada). Five persons among them Einar Rostivold, saw a huge ball of light giving off fiery colors, 25 km from Robsart. It landed slowly, van- ished gradually after illuminating the whole country- side for 30 min. (Fate Jan., 58) 48 Summer, 1933 Chrysville (Pennsylvania). A man observed a faint Morning violet light in a field between this town and Morres- town. Walking to it, he found an ovoid object 3 m in diameter and 2 m thick with a circular opening similar to a vault door. Pushing it, he found the room full of violet light and observed many instruments, no oc- cupant. Smell of ammonia. (APRO Jul., 64) 49 Fall, 1938 (or following year) Juminda (Estonian coast). Two persons saw a strange "frog-man" 1 m tall with a round head, no neck, and a hump in front of the body. The mouth was a large, straight slit, the eyes were like smaller slits. The skin was brown-green, compared to pegamoid, hands normal. The creature walked in a peculiar "but elegant" fashion, the head waving up and down while the legs moved "carefully." When pursued, the creature accelerated very fast, with feet "fluttering." About 100 m away it vanished com- pletely'. (Personal) 50 Sep., 1943 Oncativo (Argentina). Navarro Ocampo, driving be- 0400 tween Rosario and Cordoba, saw a large, saucer-shaped object on the ground 500 m to the left of the road. It glowed with a bluish-green light, made a whistling sound, rose to 100 m altitude, then left at fantastic speed. A strange metal block is said to have been found at the spot. (GEPA Dec., 68) 51 End Aug., 1944 Mattoon (Illinois). A mysterious man appeared at windows, as if in search of someone. He stunned wit- nesses by pointing at them a device that "made con- sciousness dissolve" and left a strange cloying smell behind (FSR 61, 3; Magonia) 52 1945 Habbebishopsheim (Germany). An American soldier saw a disk-shaped object come down rapidly, oscillate, and land. The site could not be found in the dark. The event took place 35 km northwest of the town. (Atic) 53 Mar., 1945 Belfast (Maine). A man out hunting observed an elongated object flying very slowly, tilted toward the earth. It crashed into some trees at the end of a clear- ing. The enormous craft seemed undamaged as it rested briefly on the ground, then lifted again with a humming sound, started to spin, released a shower of fine silvery threads, and rose straight up, disap- pearing in seconds. (FS May., 59) 54 Mar., 1945 Aleutian Islands. Aboard the US attack transport "Delarof," 14 sailors saw a dark sphere rise out of the ocean, follow a curved trajectory, and fly away after circling their ship. (Evidence 30) 55 Jun. 10, 1947 Douglas (Arizona). Coral Lorenzen saw a light rise 2300 from the ground in Mexican territory. It took a defin- ite spherical shape and vanished in less than ten sec- onds among the stars. (Lor. I 4) 56 Jun. 21, 1947 Maury Island, near Tacoma (Washington). Harold A. Dahl and others allegedly saw six tire-shaped ob- jects, 30 m in diameter, metallic with dark openings, over Puget Sound. One of the objects exploded, showering the witnesses with metal. Officially re- garded as hoax. (Ruppelt) 57 Jun. 21, 1947 Spokane (Washington). Eight disk-shaped objects 1150 the size of a house, were seen flying at 1000 km/h. A civilian woman stated that the objects fell with a dead- leaf motion and landed before ten witnesses on the shore of the Saint Joe River, in Idaho. (Atic) 58 Jun. 17, 1947 Bisbee (Arizona). John A. Petsche, electrical worker 1030 and another witness independently saw a disk-shaped object, which seemed to land near Tintown. (Lor. I 6) 59 Jun. 30, 1947 Grand Canyon, near Williams Field (Arizona). A 0910 Navy lieutenant was flying at 9000 m toward the south when he saw two circular objects diving at "un- conceivable" speed. They were gray, about 3 m in diameter, and appeared to land 40 km south of the Grand Canyon. (Atic) 60 Jul. 08, 1947 Muroc Air Field (California). An Air Force major 1200 observed a metallic object, reflecting sunlight oscil- late, go down to ground level, and rise again. Simul- taneously it was observed by a captain in Rodgers Dry Lake. (Atic) 61 Jul. 23, 1947 Bauru, near Pitanga (Brazil). A group of survey workers ran away as they heard a hissing noise and saw a disk land 50 m away. Jose C. Higgins saw two figures through, a window. Later three beings in shiny clothes and translucent suits, with oversized bald heads, huge round eyes, no eyelashes or eyebrows, and a metal box on their back, emerged from the craft. They were over 2 m. tall. They drew the solar system and pointed to Uranus as if to suggest that was their point of origin. (Round-up 163; FSR 61, 6) 62 Aug. 13, 1947 Twin Falls, Smoke River Canyon (Idaho). Two boys 1300 and their father saw a sky-blue object 100 m away and 25 m above ground. Treetops under it were spinning wildly, although the object itself did not spin. It made a swishing sound. Shape: inverted plate, 7 m diameter and 3.5 m thick. There was a red flame on one side of the top. (Atic) 63 Aug. 14, 1947 Raveo (Italy). R. L. Johannis saw a disk on the ground 0900 and two dwarfs less than 1 m tall, wearing dark blue coveralls with red collars and belts. They had over- sized heads, greenish faces, huge, salient dark eyes without eyelashes or eyebrows, but surrounded by a ringlike muscle. They wore something similar to crash helmets. The center of their belts projected a "vapor," and the witness suffocated, feeling a strong electrical discharge. The creature had greenish hands with eight talonlike fingers. (Humanoids 2; Magonia; FRS 67, 1) 64 1948 Swastika (Canada). Mr. Galbraith twice saw an ob- ject land. The first time, it was a disk-shaped craft with a humanoid figure-the second time, cigar shape with three figures. (Quincy) 65 Jul. 29, 1948 Indianapolis (Indiana). An object swept over a road at 10 m altitude. (Atic) 66 Aug. 11, 1948 Hamel (Minnesota). Two boys were playing outside 1200 when a round dull gray object 70 cm in diameter, 30 cm thick, landed near them like a balloon with a metallic noise. It spun, went up, hovered, maneuvered to avoid telephone lines and trees, and flew away to the northeast. An FBI man from St. Paul found an area 70 cm in diameter where the ground showed signs of extreme pressure. (Atic) 67 Aug. 29, 1948 Maplewood (Ohio). A farmer observed a silvery 0503 sphere of large dimension rise from a wooded area and hover above his farm, dropping a silvery substance that disintegrated before touching the ground. (Atic) 68 Feb., 1949 Pucusana (Peru). C. A. V. an oil company employee, 1630 30, was driving to Lima when he saw a shiny disk at ground level. He walked toward it for 10 min. Three figures came out as he was 20 m away. They looked like mummies, had joined legs and one large foot. They "slid" along the ground. They were covered with a strange "towely" skin, asked the witness where they were, had a lengthy discussion with him, and took him for a trip in their craft. (Lor. III 122) 69 Feb. 17, 1949 France (exact location unknown). Alain Berard saw night a large, bright object land near his farm with a green lightning flash. It became dark. As he approached the craft, the witness saw three figures with stocky short legs, apparently without heads. Frightened, he fired at them three times. A moment later the object took off vertically. (Oltre il Cielo, Vol. I) 70 Aug. 19, 1949 Death Valley (California). Two prospectors are said to have observed a disk-shaped object land. Two dwarfs emerged but were lost in the sand dunes when pursued. The object disappeared. (Humanoids 52) 71 Fall, 1949 Tulsa (Oklahoma). Don Bushnell, plant superin- tendent with Southwestern Porcelain Steel Corp., saw an object fall in front of his car as his radio was blocked. He applied the brakes; object vanished. (KeyhoeS) 72 Jan. 29, 1950 South Table Mountain (Colorado). Mr. Quintana of Denver saw a silvery-green ovoid object hovering about 15 m above a slope and landing slowly in a small ravine. Then it shot upward at very high speed. Its diameter was about 20 m, and it had a revolving middle band. A greenish light flashed under it, and the witness felt a rush of air and a pungent smell. (FS Jul., 59) 73 Mar. 18, 1950 Lago Argentino (Argentina). A rancher, Wilfredo H. 1830 Arevalo, saw two objects, one of which landed. He walked within 150 m of the aluminum-looking craft which gave off a greenish-blue vapor and "an intense smell of burning benzine." A large, flat section on top was revolving above a glass cabin in which could be seen four tall men, dressed in something like cellophane, working at various instruments. They saw him and shone a light in his direction while a blue light illuminated the craft; the vapor increased and flames (alternately reddish and greenish) shot out of the base while the object rose with a faint hum. Both craft flew away toward Chile, leaving bluish trails. (Humanoids 32) 74 Apr., 1950 Juneau (Alaska). Mikel Konrad made a movie of eight disks he saw landing and taking off 60 km north of Juneau. (Quincy) 75 Apr. 08, 1950 Kokomo (Indiana). A metal worker was awakened 0200 by his dog and observed an object 60 m away at low altitude. It was a gray metal disk, 5 m in diameter, shaped like a top with a kind of turret. It was oscil- lating, spinning slowly, and had three portholes shin- ing with a blue-white light. It hovered for about 2 min, left toward the north, very fast. (Atic) 76 Apr. 08, 1950 River Road near Amarillo (Texas). David, 12, and afternoon Charles, 9, Lightfoot saw a disk land behind a hill and touched it. It was the size of a car tire, about 30 cm high, with a rounded top that rotated and a pivot between the base and the top. It took off very fast. The faces and arms of the boys later became red. (200) 77 Apr. 20, 1950 Lufkin (Texas). Jack Robertson was driviug about night 13 km west of town when he saw a round object about 3 m in diameter hovering about 7 m above him with a dull red glow. It took off with a "swooshing roar" as sparks flew from a slot under it. Minutes later the witness feIt a burning sensation on his face. (FS Jul., 59) 78 Apr. 24, 1950 Abbiate Guazzone (Italy). Bruno Facchini heard and 2200 saw sparks coming from a dark, hovering object, near which a man dressed in tight-fitting clothes and wear- ing a helmet seemed to be making repairs. Three other men were seen near the craft. When the work was finished, a trap through which light had been shining was closed and the thing took off. The witness had the time to note many details of the machine and its occupants. (FSR 63, 2; Magonia) 79 May. 07, 1950 Ely (Nevada). A couple and their grandson were re- 1845 turning from a picnic when, about 14 km south of Ely, they saw a silvery-white object at treetop level. It hovered for 10 min, then oscillated "as if attempt- ing to rise" and suddenly flew out of sight at high speed. (Atic) 80 Jul. 02, 1950 Steep Rock Lake (Canada). In a story strangely sim- ilar to that of Mr. Kiehl (Aug., 1914) (Case 40) a man and his wife saw a double saucer with portholes and a rotating antenna come to rest on the surface of the lake. Ten figures, 1.20 m tall, dressed in shiny clothing, emerged and walked on deck like robots "changing direction without turning their bodies." Their faces could not be seen. One of them wore a red cap, had darker arms and legs and "seemed to be their chief." They immersed a hose in the lake, then took off. Fishermen later reported a green moss form- ing on the lake. (Wilkins U) 81 Jul. 20, 1950 Porto Novo (Brazil). Mr. Campello and several others in a car saw two large, silvery objects by the side of the road, one on a hillock, the other on flat ground, about 50 m away from each other. They came within 600 m of the objects, which went away at "an incredible speed," causing a rush of air that rocked the car. (SBEDV 30) 82 Jun. 19, 1951 Sonderborg (Denmark). Joseph Matiszewski, a me- 1200 chanic, heard a whistling sound and saw an object land in a meadow. Approaching within 50 m, he found himself paralyzed and observed that birds had stopped singing and cows seemed to be similarly un- able to move. From the object emerged four hand- some men who had brown skin and wore black shiny suits and translucent helmets. Eight objects also emerged from the craft and hovered above it. Other men inside the craft and on its deck appeared to be making repairs, then the objects flew to about 100 m altitude and climbed rapidly out of sight. Only then did the paralysis subside. (Nachrichten May., 59) 83 Sep. , 1951 Central Australia. A group of Unmatjera aborigines observed a shiny circular object land near a similar craft, about 12 m in diameter. Several min later, a dwarf dressed in a shiny suit and having "a round, shiny head" came out of one craft and entered the other; both took off with a buzzing sound. (Edwards 93) 84 Oct. 26, 1951 Australia. The driver of a transcontinental train on 0400 the east-west line saw an object that illuminated the countryside like the full moon. It flew very fast, came close to the train, appeared ready to land in the desert, then took off and disappeared. (Wilkins A 249) 85 Nov. 2, 1951 Mojave (California). Two forest observers were in a 2300 canyon 50 km north of the Mojave when they saw a disk-shaped flying object in the southwest; 10 m esti- mated diameter, 3 m thick, blue-green, well-defined, surrounded with a glow of same color. Stopping their jeep, they signaled to the object, which approached within a few meters, flew away, seemed to play with them. Eventually it vanished "like a magician's trick." (Atic) 86 Dec., 1951 Peru (Nebraska). A man from Lincoln was driving to 0300 Indiana when he saw a blue light in the northwest sky. It vanished to the southeast. The witness missed a turn, had to go back toward Auburn, and had reached a point northwest of Peru when he saw an orange glow in the sky. Coming near, he observed the glow came from a cauldron-shaped object on the ground, about 12 m from the road. He stopped to examine the object, which measured about 10 m diameter and seemed to be made of cast iron. Thirty cm from the top was a row of windows, 25 cm in diameter, from which the orange light was coming. On the other side was a blue flamelike glow. There was no noise, no sign of life or activity, and no an- tenna or protrusion. The witness drove away. (Atic) 87 Dec., 1951 Red Springs (North Carolina). Sam Coley and his two children saw an object with a human-looking occupant. (Humanoids 52) 88 Jan., 1952 Weston (Wyoming). A 38-year-old rancher saw a 2230 "shooting star" that suddenly stopped in mid-air be- tween him and a mountain. It was seen spinning in a clockwise direction. It had one red window period- ially facing the observer. It went down toward the Little Powder River and came up again. The witness turned his car to send light signals, to which the object seemed to respond by stopping its red window facing the witness's location. Spinning resumed, the object rose and came down. A similar craft arrived and both went into the deep valley, out of sight. (Atic) 89 Early 1952 Goose Bay (Labrador). A fiery, spherical object made 2242 a right-angle turn during an observation by a C-54 crew flying from Westover to Goose Bay. It was also seen from the ground by the control tower and by two men who plunged to the earth when the object made a low pass at them. It went away at 2247. (Quincy) 90 Summer, 1952 Itenhaem (Brazil). A woman was awakened by a 0300 thunderclap and a strong bluish light. As she got out, she saw a large number of hovering disk-shaped ma- chines resembling "inverted soup plates" 200 m away at an altitude of about 1 m. She observed them for 30 min, saw two figures standing on one of the craft and looking at the sky. They went back inside, and shortly thereafter the "fleet" took off, one object at a time. (FSR 68,1) 91 Summer, 1952 Martin County (Texas). Mrs. Rogers saw an object descend slowly and pass across a pasture at 7 m alti- tude. She stopped her car and observed it was "wob- bling" in mid-air, was shaped like a turtle, and showed three oarlike protrusions that moved slowly. Esti- mated dimensions: 5 by 4 m, 1 m thick. It was greenish-gray in color, emitted a blue flame, but showed no other light. (Barker 78) 92 Jun. 15, 1952 Magneville (France). Men at work in the forest saw large, circular objects similar to parachutes coming down. Half a dozen witnesses. (France-Soir Jun. 18, 52) 93 Jul. 11, 1952 Hasselbach (Germany). Oscar Linke, former Wehr- macht major, and his daughter Gabrielle, 11, had to leave their motorcycle when they had a flat tire. In- side the woods the girl noticed two men in silvery suits examining the ground in a clearing near a pink disk-shaped object, 8 m in diameter, showing a double row of openings around the rim and a black turret on top. One of the men had a flashing box. Both men went inside, and the disk vibrated, rose along the turretlike cylinder, then spun faster and rose out of sight. (Guieu 52) 94 Jul. 20, 1952 Dai-el-Aouagri (Morocco). Approximate date. R. 0030 Petijean saw a luminous object, 20 m diameter, on the ground. It gave off bluish flashes as it took off, leaving a smell of burning sulphur. (Quincy) 95 Jul. 24, 1952 Vico (Italy). A man who was fishing in the Serchio night River saw a disk hovering for 10 min. From it hung a hose that plunged into the water. The object was 20 m in diameter, with five propellers in the rear and a dome with something like blades on top. An orange glow could be seen through slits along the deck. A man wearing a diving helmet looked at the witness through a window, and he received a kind of electric shock as a "green ray" hit him. He looked up with difficulty, in time to see the object fly away toward the east. Six days later a stranger with a foreign accent contacted the witness and intimidated him. (FSR 69,1) 96 Jul. 29, 1952 Enid (Oklahoma). Sidney Eubank went to the Enid police station and told Sergeant Vern Bennell that an enormous disk had buzzed his car as he drove be- tween Bison and Waukonis on Highway 81. The rush of air made the car leave the road while the object flew west very fast. (Anatomy 134) 97 Aug. 19, 1952 West Palm Beach (Florida). Ronny Desvergers saw evening a large, round, dark object above him in a clearing. It had a turret on top. Red balls of light were emitted by the object and burned him. He also observed a "hideous" creature aboard the craft. Grass roots were scorched at the site. (Ruppelt 222; Magonia) 98 Aug. 24, 1952 Frontenac (Kansas). A man driving through a wood 0600 encountred a strange object and stopped to observe it. It looked like two turtle shells glued together, about 25 m long, with a humanoid creature in what ap- peared to be a control cabin in front. Windows lighted by an intense blue light and a throbbing sound were also reported. The object was oscillating and suddenly flew straight up with a strong humming noise. The middle section supported what looked like propellers. The object hovered 3 m above ground. (Atic) 99 Aug. 27, 1952 Lamberton (North Carolina). A saucer-shaped craft, 3 by 2 m, landed on the witness's property after hitting a chimney. A little man, about 70 cm tall, emerged and was asked whether he was hurt, but he did not answer. The craft took off with a whistling sound. (Wilkins A 268) 100 Aug. 31, 1952 Pennsylvania, exact location unknown. Herbert Long saw an object land 15 m away from the road. He made a drawing of it. (Wilkins A 257) 101 Sep. 12, 1952 Flatwoods (West Virginia). A group of young sunset people saw a "meteor" land on top of a hill and went to the site with Kathleen Hill and three men. They observed a globe as large as a house making a throb- bing or hissing sound and a huge figure with glowing orange eyes nearby. About 4 m tall, the figure had a red face and "floated" toward the witnesses, who fled in terror. A lingering smell and skid marks were found. (Humanoids 52) 102 Sep. 13, 1952 Frametown (West Virginia). Mr. and Mrs. George Snitowski and their little girl suddenly found their car stalled, and an unpleasant smell (ether mixed with sulphurous smoke) filled the air. Mr. Snitowski thought a chemical plant might be burning in the area and walked toward a strong light visible in the woods, in spite of the nauseous smell. Coming near it, he felt pricklings throughout his body, had to stop, lost his balance several times as he returned to the car- where he found his wife terrified, pointing to a giant creature (3 m tall), human-shaped, 10 m away. They locked the car as "it" inspected the vehicle, glided away and went into the woods. Soon afterward, the sphere of light was observed to rise gradually, to swing like a pendulum, and to leave a luminous trail. (Paul Lieb) 103 Oct. 15, 1952 Le Vigan (France). Approximate date. Figures with 1910 helmets and masks were seen through lighted windows inside a bright yellow, cigar-shaped object on the ground. Length 30 m, diameter 6 m. Forward section was rounded, and a sort of fog was noted at both ends of object. (Quincy; Anatomy 62) 104 Oct. 27, 1952 Marignane Airport (France). Customs officer Ga- 0203 briel Gachignard observed a cigar-shaped object land briefly on the airfield 100 m away, producing a dull sound. The object was dark with four lighted win- dows. It took off with a "swish" and a shower of sparks when the witness ran toward it. (Challenge 6) 105 Nov., 1952 Dublin (Ireland). A child was burned when a strange disk, 25 cm in diameter, landed near Dublin. (Per- sonal) 106 Nov. 18, 1952 Castelfranco (Italy). Nello Ferrari, 41, a farmer, found himself flooded with a reddish light and saw a large plate 10 m above him, between gold and cop- per in color. At the center of the bottom surface, 20 m in diameter, was a cylinder of 5 m diameter made of rapidly rotating parts, producing a noise similar to that of an electric motor. On the upper surface was a turret inside which three occupants were visible, look- ing directly at the witness. They looked perfectly human, wore rubber coveralls and transparent face masks. They spoke a few words, which were not understood; a loud metallic noise was heard; and the top part of the object lowered itself toward the lower plate. The sound gained intensity, and the craft flew vertically at very high speed. (102) 107 Nov. 21, 1952 Belle-Ile (France). At a place alled "La Butte" a luminous sphere, which seemed to spin, its color changing from orange to white, was seen at low alti- tude. It oscillated left and right, then took off toward the southwest, according to the witness, Mr. Gauci. (Challenge 56) 108 Jan. 29, 1953 Conway (South Carolina). Hearing a commotion in his barn, a farmer observed an object about 7 m long and 4 m wide at treetop level. It was light gray in color and lit up inside. It resembled a half egg. The witness fired his gun at the object. Numerous livestock died "mysteriously" in the area after the sighting. (Personal) 109 May. 20, 1953 Brush Creek (California). Two miners, John Q. 1830 Black, 48, and John Van Allen, reported that an object, silvery, 2.5 m in diameter, 2 m thick, with a tripod landing gear, landed on a sand bar 50 m away from them. An occupant described as a broad- shouldered dwarf wearing clothing that covered the head and the trunk was also seen. His arms and legs were covered with tweedlike cloth fastened at the wrists and ankle. He filled a shiny pail with water and handed it to someone inside the craft. He then appeared to notice Black and jumped into the craft, which made a hissing sound and departed. (Human- oids 53) 110 Jun. 18, 1953 Houston (Texas). Howard Phillips, Hilda Walker 0230 and Judy Meyers saw in a garden at 118 East Third Street a strange "shadow" on the lawn which re- sembled a "flying man," and they watched it take off. (Wilkins A 261) 111 Jun. 20, 1953 Brush Creek (California). John Q. Black, witness of 1830 the May. 20 incident, observed an exact repetition of the scene, including the "little man." Van Allen saw only the landing marks, about 30 cm wide and re sembling elephant tracks. (Humanoids 53) 112 Jun. 24, 1953 Hampton Bay (Long Island). A civilian woman saw 0018 something like "a large aircraft" flying very slowly and low. It had a lighted red band around the middle and was coming straight toward her house with an oscillating motion. She still thought it was an aircraft of some new design when it stopped near her, 25 m above ground. Then it flew backward over the water and hovered, making the same noise as a swarm of bees. The top section supported a series of red lights and a cabin with four portholes through which a con- trol panel was visible. No occupant was seen. The cabin rose above the object, rotated, then glided back. The object tilted toward the west and rose toward the southeast, disappearing within 3 sec at an 80 degree angle of climb after the 3-min sighting. Diameter: 30 m. Two days later a yellowish moss was observed at the site. (Atic) 113 Jul. 02, 1953 Villares des Saz (Spain). Approximate date. An il- 1300 literate boy cowherd, Maximo Munos Olivares, 14, saw a "big balloon" on the ground behind him when a faint whistling attracted his attention. Shaped like a water jug, it was metallic. Through an opening came three dwarfs 60 cm tall, with yellow faces, narrow eyes, and oriental features. They spoke in a language he could not understand. They were dressed in blue, had a sort of flat hat with a visor in front and a metal sheet on their arms. One of them smacked the boy's face, then they reentered the machine, which glowed very brightly, made a soft whistling sound and went off "like a rocket." Footprints and four holes 5 cm deep forming a perfect square 36 cm in side were found by police. (Humanoids 29) 114 Jul. 31, 1953 Wolin (Poland). A metallic object 30 m in diameter 1900 was observed by five Polish and two German workers as it landed in a field close to a railway. It was shaped like a sphere with a flat disk around it, showing numerous openings at the periphery. (Intelligence Digest Nov., 53) 115 Aug. 16, 1953 Tours (France). Claude Pasquier saw two disks flying 2030 very low, quite slowly, along a straight course, with a "hard" sound. (Anatomy 65, 141) 116 Aug. 18, 1953 Ciudad Valleys (Mexico). Approximate date. Cab evening driver Salvador Villanueva, 40, observed two creatures 1.2 m tall wearing coveralls with wide, shiny, per- forated belts, metal collars, and small, black, shiny boxes on their backs. They had helmets under their arms. The witness thought they were pilots of Indian race. One of them spoke to him in Spanish, "stringing the words together" in a strange accent. Trivial mat- ters were discussed until dawn, when they returned to their craft, 13 m in diameter, through a staircase under the lower disk. The witness ran away when invited to follow them. The object rose with a pendulum mo- tion and shot up vertically. (Humanoids 32; FSR 56, 2) 117 Sep. 04, 1953 Tonnerre (France). A woman saw two objects on the 2130 ground and three 1.5-m-tall men running toward the craft. They had oversized heads and wore helmets and boots. One entered the elongated object, 5 m long, 1.5 m wide, which spread "wings" that made it look like a butterfly. It then took a vertical position, resting on a tripod, and took off with the spherical object into which the other two creatures had gone. Traces were found at the spot. (GEPA 68, 1) 118 Sep. 12, 1953 Brovst (Denmark). Brovst was the scene of an at- tempted abduction of a girl by two humanoids emit- ting a golden light. Their hands were rugged and cold like a fish. (Guieu) 119 Oct. 25, 1953 Santa Fe (New Mexico). Jim Milligan, 16, was driv- 2130 ing through a park when he saw something fall in front of his car and stopped as the object landed in some bushes. He walked toward it, found a craft that looked like two ship hulls, about 3 m long, 2 m wide glued together. When he tried to touch it, the object flew away. (Wilkins A 223) 120 Nov., 1953 Gjasjoen Bridge (Norway). Mr. Trygve, Mrs. Bufflot and a neighbor saw an object rise from behind a hill, oscillate over a lake, follow their car, and stop ahead of them just above the ground. They stopped, felt "pricklings" until the craft took off vertically. A watch stopped working, and numerous people vouch for the fact that the paint on the car changed from dark beige to bright green. (APRO Mar., 62; FSR 56, 5) 121 Dec., 1953 Sherbrook (Canada). Mrs. Orfei heard a knock at the door in the middle of the night and obtained no answer when she asked who it was. When more furi- ous knocks were heard, her Alsatian dog jumped to- ward the door, but suddenly retreated, trembling as if terrified and retired to a corner. Mrs. Orfei went to an upper door and saw two "indescribable" shadows go away from the house. A while later a big, round object took off 100 m away with a blue-green lightning. The police found broken bushes as evidence of an enormous weight. (Oltre il Cielo, Vol. I) 122 Dec. 31, 1953 Quantico Marine Base (Virginia). Marines observed the landing of an unknown round object which throbbed and pulsated, emitting red lights. (Wilkins U 210) 123 Jan. 04, 1954 Marignane Airport (France).

(Barker) 126 Mar., 1954 Santa Maria (Brazil). Rubem Hellwig was driving 1700 when he saw a football-shaped machine, the size of a Volkswagen, on the ground. He walked toward it and met two men of slim build, normal height, their faces brownish, wearing no helmets. One was inside the object while the other collected grass samples. They spoke to Hellwig in a strange language, and yet he said he understood they were asking for ammonia. He directed them to a nearby town. The craft van- ished silently and instantly with blue and yellow flames. (1; Humanoids 33) 127 Mar., 1954 Santa Maria (Brazil). Rubem Hellwig again saw a early strange machine the next day. He observed a tall, fair- complexioned man and two women, who had light brown skin, long black hair, dark, slanted eyes. All three wore one-piece garments of a fabric resembling suede, with zippers. They told Hellwig that they were scientists, spoke of the natural riches of Brazil, and expressed surprise that he did not run away. (1; Humanoids 33) 128 Apr. 22, 1954 San Nicholas Island (California). American military 1400 personnel saw a cigar-shaped object of a gray color coming to the ground.

At Redlynch crossroads, he saw an orange glow in a field and observed it from a hedge. It came from a huge object 35 m away, less than 7 m above the ground, which made a throbbing sound. After 1 min, it moved to- ward the northwest, accelerating and climbing. (2; Humanoids 3) 131 Jun. 09, 1954 East Dandenong (Australia). Janet Brown, 16, and a 1820 13-year-old friend heard a loud noise and saw a large, dark object that "burst into light" hovering 20 m away at the height of a factory gate.

Durdle saw a brilliant, 0525 circular object flying across Lake Nipissing toward the Royal Canadian Air Force base. An oblong canister was hanging down from a central section, which sup- ported a long cone with a spinning globe on top. When it tilted, the witness was able to observe regulatorlike devices inside the machine through a vertical lighted slit. Six brilliant appendages, which looked like necklaces, were hanging from the craft. Durdle woke up four Air Force men, who observed the object spiraling away. (Wilkins U 227) 141 Sep. 03, 1954 Souk-el-Khemis (Tunisia). Many workers in the fields 12 km south of the town saw an object apparently made of transparent plastic fly over the houses, stop on edge, and swing like a pendulum a few meters above the ground. It made several erratic jumps, then resumed its horizontal position and flew away. (5) 142 Sep. 07, 1954 Harponville (France). Between Harponville and 0715 Contay, two bricklayers, Emile Renard, 27, and Yves Degillerboz, 23 saw an object floating in mid-air over a field: "It looked like an unfinished haystack, with a plate turned upside down on top of it." When they approached, it took off. Diameter 10 m, height 3 m. A kind of door was noticed. The observation lasted over 3 min. The object released smoke when it de- parted. (6; M 35) 143 Sep. 10, 1954 Mourieras (France). A farmer, Mr. Mazaud was 2030 walking home when he was suddenly confronted with a helmeted being of average height who made friendly gestures, then went back into the brush, entered a cigar-shaped object about 4 m long, which took off toward Limoges.

No face or arms were visible. Traces made by an object of estimated weight 30 tons were noted by French Air Force and police on the ballast. (8; M 44; Magonia) 145 Sep. 14, 1954 Coldwater (Kansas). John J. Swain, 12, was driving 2200 a tractor back from the fields when he saw a small man no bigger than a 5-year-old child a few meters away from him. He had a long nose and long ears and seemed to "fly" when he moved toward a saucer- shaped craft hovering less than 2 m above ground. It "opened up" and the creature "popped inside." The craft became luminous and went out of sight. Strange traces were found by police. The creature was dressed in shiny clothes, and his shoes seemed to have "fins."

Maroc-Presse reported that 0700 one of its employees, Mr. E., driver of a delivery truck, "a man of sane judgment and excellent eyesight," observed an object flying over the Beth River. "I am positive it was not an aircraft or any known machine but a circular, flat craft which had the appearance of copper. It flew normally for some time, then it sud- denly flipped over. Therefore, I was able to see the whole disk and was amazed when it came down into a field where it landed on edge, very gently. Almost im- mediately it rose into the sky at great speed, resumed its horizontal position and was soon lost to sight." (95) 327 Nov. 04, 1954 Pontal (Brazil).

(M 207; Challenge 14) 390 Apr. 19, 1957 Pacific Ocean, near Japan. Japanese fishermen aboard 1152 the "Kitsukawara Maru" saw two metal disks come into the sky. This was followed by violent turbulence. (Round-up 147) 391 Apr. 22, 1957 Palalda (France). Mr. and Mrs. Firmin Bason heard 1300 an unusual noise and saw a whirlwind of flames 10 or 15 m above ground, coming down toward the vine- yard. It was red and blue, spinning wildly, flying slowly. It hovered for 5 min over plants which moved violently, then it flew south with a deafening roar, hovered again and departed to the southwest. Diam- eter at the top: about 5 m. (Ouranos 21) 392 May., 1957 Milford (Pennsylvania). Frances Stichler, who lived on a farm, was working in her barn when she heard a whirring sound and saw a bowl-shaped object, 7 m in diameter, with a rim over 1 m wide about 5 m above ground. It stopped with one side tilted toward her. A man dressed in a loose, shiny, gray suit, wearing a tight-fitting helmet, was facing her from inside the object. He seemed of average height had deep-set eyes, tanned skin, and a long face with a "quizzical" expression. Almost immediately the object left toward the southeast. (108; Humanoids 57) 393 May. 01, 1957 Pajasblancas Airport (Argentina). When his motor- 0700 cycle suddenly failed, the driver observed a disk, 2O m in diameter and 5 m thick, hovering about 15 m above ground. He hid in a ditch and saw the craft come down, making a sound similar to air escaping from a valve. A sort of lift descended from its base almost to the ground. In it was a man of average height, who made friendly gestures to the witness. He was dressed in a plastic diving suit. The witness entered the ma- chine and saw inside several people seated before instrument panels, lighted by an extraordinary light. He was then escorted out, and the disk rose to the northwest. During the next hour, six sightings were made along the same course by independent witnesses. (Humanoids 35; FSR 65, 1; FSR 65, 4) 394 May. 10, 1957 Beaucourt-sur-Ancre (France). A Hungarian refugee, 2250 Michel Fekete, was riding his bicycle when he saw an object hovering 30 cm above ground and four little men nearby. The police found lavalike fragments at the site. Six other witnesses vouch for the sighting including Messrs. Iklef and Lepot and their wives. The craft was luminous, pulsating between red and white (remaining red longer). When white, it was more blinding than a powerful searchlight. It was 50 m away from the group of witnesses. Occupants were about 1.30 m tall with a beige-gray body, an ab- normally large black head, and a waddling gait. The object flew away when a car came into view. (109; M 211) 395 Jun. 5, 1957 Uriman (Venezuela). Undocumented report of a landing and of "bellicose dwarfs." (Quincy) 396 Jul. 25, 1957 Sao Sebastiao (Brazil). Mr. Joao Guimaraes, who is 1910 a professor at the Catholic Faculty of Law in Santos, was sitting near the shore when he saw a hat-shaped, luminous craft approach from the sea and land near him. From it came a metallic stairway. Two normal men with long, fair hair hanging to their shoulders, a youthful appearance and wearing one-piece suits, came down, gave no verbal answers to his questions, but invited him "telepathically" to come aboard the craft. Inside the illuminated compartment, he sat on a circular seat with the crew. The machine rose for a short flight. On his return, Guimaraes found that his watch no longer worked. (Humanoids 36; FSR 57, 6 397 Jul. 30, 1957 Galt, Ontario (Canada). Jack Stephenson was walk- ing about 7 km from Galt when he saw a flash in the sky. A circular object making a whirring sound came down and landed with a throw of flames. It took off again 30 min later,leaving the ground blackened and branches broken. The craft had a stationary dome, but the periphery was spinning. (Round-up 188) 398 Aug. 20, 1957 Quilino (Argentina). An Air Force man inside a tent heard a loud, shrill sound and saw a disk that came down as grass and plants fluttered wildly under it. He found himself unable to draw his gun, which "seemed to be glued in its holster." A voice came from the craft, telling him in Spanish that UFO's had a base in the Salta area and would soon show themselves to warn all people about the dangers of a nuclear catastrophe. (Humanoids 36) 399 Aug. 22, 1957 Cecil Naval Air Station (Florida). A black, bell- 1540 shaped object bearing two bright, white lights at the top and maeasuring 15 m in diameter was chased by a civilian in a car until the engine stalled. The object was then hovering 3 m away. The underside of the machine resembled a disk with fins. When a jet air- craft took off from the airfield, the object went out of sight almost instantaneously. The car battery was found completely dead. There was no helicopter in the area, although the two witnesses compared the noise made by the object to that of a helicopter. (Atic) 400 Sep., 1957 Campinas (Brazil). A man suddenly fell, as if para- lyzed, and his two companions then observed an ob- ject shaped like a disk with a dome on top and another dome under it, 50 m away. A door opened and three men, 1.70 m tall, wearing close-fitting, iridescent clothing, and who walked as if on skis, appeared to make a check of the craft and the surroundings. They gathered samples in a large box. The witnesses saw small portholes and a tripod landing gear. The craft took off after 20 min. (Nachrichten Jul., 60) 401 Sep. 10, 1957 Ubatuba (Brazil). Approximate date. Anonymous witnesses saw a disk dive down and explode, shower- ing the area with flaming fragments. Some samples were gathered, sent to a Brazilian newsman, analyzed by friends of Dr. Fontes, of Rio, and were found to consist of surprisingly pure magnesium. (Lor.l 90; 110) 402 Sep. 16, 1957 Smithfield (Australia). Les McDonald, 17, and 930 Gladys Smith, 14, saw a red light changing to green, spreading around them like a mist and covering an area about 100 m diameter. They became nearly paralyzed and "felt a warm glow." They had no fear, but were "merely cognizant of things as they were without being able to react." This sensation lasted two min. (UFO Bulletin Dec., 57) 403 Sep. 19, 1957 Point Pleasant (New Jersey). A boomerang-shaped 1840 object bigger than a house was reported to have landed. Grass flattened. (Atic) 404 Sep. 26, 1957 Yellow Falls (Texas). Three hundred people were sunset said to have seen three elongated objects with a series of portholes, maneuvering at ground level in an area with many empty oil wells. One of these objects, said to be 150 m long and 20 m high, pearl-colored, glisten- ing under the setting sun and showing a series of circles painted on its surface, landed for 20 min. An occupant emerged, observed the abandoned derricks and took off again. Observed through binoculars, he appeared as a "monster," 1 m tall, moving with strange jumps. He picked up something from the ground. (Perego) 405 Sep. 29, 1957 Deerwood Nike Base (Maryland). Undocumented 0500 report of a landing observed by missile men. (Keyhoe S) 406 Oct., 1957 Niquelandia (Brazil). At the Gabiroba farm, owners A. Santinoni and S. de Oliveira were blinded by beam from a round object at ground level. The light was green and yellow. When they came near, all went dark and the object vanished. (Round-up 205) 407 Oct. 05, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Antonio Villas-Boas who 2300 could not sleep because of the heat, opened the shutters of his house and saw a silvery glow in the yard, but no flying object. The light moved and was seen going over the house. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia) 408 Oct. 08, 1957 Nabouwalu (Fiji Islands). Two couples going from 1500 Nabouwalu to Nawaca in a motor boat saw a white object come down from the sky, thought it was a plane in trouble and went closer. They found the object hovering 7 m above the water, and a figure on board the craft aimed at them a beam so bright they "felt weak." The figure disappeared suddenly, and the object took off vertically at high speed. (Round-up 202; Challenge 18) 409 Oct. 10, 1957 Schenectady (New York). Mrs. Edward Yeager who lived in a trailer on the Duanesburg-Church Road near Mariaville, saw a circular object go down behind the hill. Two min later it flew up again, very bright. The next day she was feeding animals that ran away as the same or a similar object came within 2 m of the ground. Two dark, little men came out of the craft and went into the woods. The object remained there two min, then left. A search for the occupants proved futile. A bus driver was said to have seen two craft land in a nearby field at the same hour. (FSR 58, 3) 410 Oct. 10, 1957 Quebracoco (Brazil). Naval officer Miguel Espanhol night and another man, traveling to Ceres, saw a bright object that illuminated the countryside and came down to ground level as the truck stalled. It was oval or saucer-shaped, over 150 m in diameter and 40 m deep, with a dome supporting a long "aerial" with a red light on top. The bright light went off and the witnesses saw seven childlike beings, with long hair and luminous suits, who looked down at them for about 3 min. The craft flew south and released a smaller disk, which flew north. (Humanoids 36) 411 Oct. 11, 1957 Roulon (France). Two witnesses in a car saw some- 2000 thing they described as "a dark, transparent ball" about 50 cm in diameter rising from the side of the road. It had appendages trailing behind. (111) 412 Oct. 14, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Second observation by 2145 A. Villas-Boas. He was plowing a field with his brother when they saw a red light at the edge of the field. He went toward it, but it shifted its position every time he went close. It vanished on the spot. (FSR 66, 4; Magonia) 413 Oct. 15, 1957 Covington (Indiana). Mr. Moudy, a farmer, observed daylight a silvery disk which hovered above his tractor; the engine failed when the object rose. (Personal) 414 Oct. 16, 1957 Francisco de Sales (Brazil). Third observation by A. 0100 Villas-Boas. Alone in the fields on a clear night, he saw a big, red star which took the appearance of a luminous, egg-shaped object and stopped 50 m above his tractor. Its light was brighter than that of the headlights as it landed 15 m away. The top part was spinning. It became green as it slowed down, was then seen as a flattened dome. Three legs emerged from the machine as it settled down. The tractor engine stalled, and the witness was seized by unknown individuals and carried aboard the craft, where he was medically examined, then left with a woman of short stature with whom he had sexual intercourse. Villas-Boas reported that crew members wore tight, white clothes with a light on the belt, heelless white shoes, big gloves, and opaque helmets with a slit at the level of the eyes. Their language was shrill, and he could estab- lish no verbal communication with them. (FSR 66, 4 et seq.) 415 Oct. 25, 1957 Petropolis (Brazil). A girl suffering from cancer ap- peared about to die when the house was suddenly illuminated by a strong light, as if a searchlight had been aimed at the room. It came from an object whose top part was reddish yellow. Two figures emerged from it and entered the house. They were about 1.20 m tall, had long yellow-red hair, small green, slanted eyes, and wore white gloves and glowing white clothes. Before the astounded witnesses (the author of the report and the family of the girl), they used a device producing a bluish-white light and another instu- ment, in what appeared to be radiation treatment of the patient. After 30 min they went away, leaving her completely cured. The report was anonymous. (FSR 67, 5) 416 Oct. 31, 1957 Longchaumois (France). A businessman and his wife 0000 saw a large, lighted object with openings, which hov- ered, came to ground level, and took off with a great increase in brightness at very high speed, but without noise. (Personal) 417 Nov., 1957 Provencal (Louisiana). Haskell Raper, Jr., was driv- 2300 ing home on a rainy night when he saw a large, lighted object on the road ahead, which he thought was a truck. Suddenly the object flashed a beam of light directly at the car, apparently exerting a strong pressure and slowing it to a stop 5 m away. The object was then described as oval, 5 m long, 3 m high, army green in color. It bore lettering beginning with the letters UN, followed by some numbers. A sort of heat wave filled the car, and the witness ran out in panic as the vehicle caught fire. The object rose with the sound of a diesel engine. Raper ran to the town, less than 2 km away; and reported the incident. The car, a 1956 Ford, was completely destroyed. (FS Oct., 58) 418 Nov. 02, 1957 Canadian (Texas). 5 km west of this town, military 0330 and civilian witnesses reported a submarine-shaped object, red and white, two or three times as long as a car and about 3 m high, at ground level. A figure was seen near this object, also something compared to a white flag. When a car stopped in the vicinity, a flash of light from the object coincided with the sud- den failure of the headlights. (Atic) 419 Nov. 02, 1957 Levelland (Texas). A large number of reports from 2250 the Levelland area described a low-flying object, over 60 m long, equipped with a bright light, and which interfered with car ignition. (Anatomy 136; map) 420 Nov. 03, 1957 White Sands (New Mexico). At Stallion Site, an 0300 army patrol in a jeep saw an orange, "apparently con- trolled," luminous object on the ground near the site of the first A-bomb explosion. It was first seen as a sunlike source 50 m above ground, descending to ground level after 3 min, and landing several km away at the northern end of the testing grounds. Two wit- nesses. (M 238) 421 Nov. 04, 1957 Elmwood Park (Illinois). Two policemen, Joseph 0315 Lukasek and Clifford Schau, and a third man named Daniel De Giovanni, while looking for the cause of a headlight failure, observed a fluorescent object 50 to 100 m away from them, coming down. The car had- lights functioned properly again and they drove to- ward the object but had to stop at a cemetery wall. They turned off all lights and watched the object for two min. It played "hide and seek" with them as they tried to reach its location. (M 240; 113) 422 Nov. 05, 1957 New Castle (Indiana). An object looking like "a big meat platter" was seen at close range by Mrs. Jasper Barlow and her two children, who were inside their car. It had a flickering light on the bottom. There was no ignition interference noted. (M 245) 423 Nov. 05, 1957 New York City (New York). In Van Cortland Park, 0430 Frank C. was talking with a bus driver when they saw in the park, about 400 m away, a metallic object shaped like a disk, spinning with a soft whirring. On top was a fixed dome with portholes. The object was hovering at tree-height. A yellow light from the craft suddenly illuminated the area, and it flew off "like a shooting star." (M 241) 424 Nov. 05, 1957 Scotia (Nebraska). A man heard a noise similar to 1730 that of a helicopter and perceived a "burning" odor. He saw a balloon-like, elongated object that came to ground level, did not touch the ground, but rose again and disappeared. The witness was "paralyzed" during the observation. The object appeared to have gener- ated thick smoke. (Atic) 425 Nov. 06, 1957 Santa Fe (New Mexico). J. Martinez and A. Gallegos 0010 saw an egg-shaped object coming toward them at low altitude. It moved slowly, illuminating their car and producing a humming sound. The car engine, the clock and a wristwatch stopped. The object shot away toward the southwest. (M 246) 426 Nov. 06, 1957 Seoul (Korea). North of Seoul a barrel-shaped object, morning bluish-white and luminous, was seen close to the ground, reflected in a pool of water. It rose and van- ished "like a light switched off." (Atic) 427 Nov. 06, 1957 Playa del Rey (California). Richard Kehoe was driv- 0540 ing near the beach when his engine stopped, and so did three other cars. The man got out and observed an egg-shaped object wrapped in "a blue haze" on the beach. Two men, below average height got out of the craft and asked them questions about their identity, what time it was, etc. They looked normal wore black leather pants, white belts, light-colored jerseys, and seemed to have yellowish-green skin. They went back inside the craft, which left rapidly, and the cars could then be started. (Humanoids 57) 428 Nov. 06, 1957 Lake County (Ohio). A civilian source reported an 0630 object so bright that his eyes could not sustain it. It appeared to land on a ridge, then took off again. It was round and much larger than a plane, had an "odd color," left no trail and made no noise. (Atic) 429 Nov. 06, 1957 Knoxville (Tennessee). 12-year-old Everett Clark 0630 saw a strange object on the ground and four occu- pants, two men and two women who spoke a lan- guage he thought was similar to German. They went back to the craft in a manner the witness could not understand, for he saw no door. (M 271;114; Magonia) 430 Nov. 06, 1957 Everittstown (New Jersey). John Trasco saw a bril- evening liant, egg-shaped object hovering in front of a barn and was confronted with a being 1 m tall with a putty-colored face and frog-like eyes. He thought the dwarf said in broken English: "We are peaceful people; we only want your dog." The little man, who was dressed in a green suit with shiny buttons, a green tam-o-shanter-like cap, and gloves with a shiny object at the tip of each finger, fled when the witness denied his request. (Humanoids 56; Magonia) 431 Nov. 06, 1957 Boerne (Texas). A civilian source reported an oval 1800 object, about 5 m long, bright orange, similar to glowing coals, hovering 4 m above ground. The wit- ness went to call his family; the object had vanished when he returned. Unidentified. (Atic) 432 Nov. 06, 1957 Baskatong Lake (Canada). 180 km north of Ottawa 2100 Jacques Jacobson and three of his friends saw a bright, yellowish-white sphere hovering over a hilltop about 4 km away. From top and bottom issued light cones that illuminated the countryside and the clouds. Radio reception was blocked throughout the obser- vation, except for a very powerful signal at one wave- length, modulated, but not in Morse code. The object rose slowly toward the south. (M 249) 433 Nov. 06, 1957 Montville (Ohio). Olden Moore, 28, a plasterer was 2330 driving home when he suddenly saw an object look- ing like a bright meteor split into two pieces, one of which went straight up. The other got larger while its color changed from bright white to blue-green. It hovered 60 m above a field and came to the ground with a soft whirring sound, 150 m away. After observ- ing it for 15 min, Moore then walked to the object, which he found to be shaped like "a covered dish" 15 m in diameter, 5 m high, with a cone on top about 3 m high, surrounded by haze or fog, pulsating slowly. Holes, footprints and radioactivity were found at the site by Civil Defense Director Kenneth Locke. (M 252) 434 Nov. 07, 1957 Meridian (Mississippi). Truck driver Malvin Stevens, 0725 48, was driving to Memphis when, about 23 km northwest of Meridian, he saw an object which ap- peared to have two propellers at either end and a third one on top. Getting out of his truck, he saw three little men about 1.30 m tall, in gray clothes, with "pasty white faces" that seemed friendly and willing to talk, but he was unable to understand their "chattering." "I stood there for what seemed like an eternity." They got back into the machine and it took off straight up. There was no ignition inter- ference. An 8-year-old girl from Honse independently reported a round object crossing the sky toward the south. (M 273; 115) 435 Nov. 08, 1957 Edinburgh (Scotland). Fourteen people, including Mrs. Maty Home, reported to police that a disk- shaped object followed their truck, dived toward it, came within 20 m of them, then left toward the sea, leaving a double vapor trail.

Paul Rutledge saw an object 16 m night long flying over his garage. The top part was bright, and there were two figures visible inside. (M 266) 439 Nov. 09, 1957 Lake City (Missouri). A civilian driving his car home 0100 from work observed a hovering object 16 m long. His car engine died as he neared the object's position, and it started again only after the object's departure. (Atic) 440 Nov. 10, 1957 Madison (Ohio). Mrs. Leita Kuhn observed a very 0125 large, lighted object 20 m above ground. It was so brilliant that she had to close her eyes. It was over 10 m wide, 3 to 4 m thick, with a dome on top. The witness had to consult a physician several days later because of serious eye and skin irritation. (M 267; 118) 441 Nov. 16, 1957 Bage City (Brazil). A blinding object, red and yellow, 2230 twice landed-first near the Jockey Club, then near the Rural Exhibition. (Quincy) 442 Nov. 18, 1957 Maracaja (Brazil). Farmers Joao Ernani and Pedro 1030 Zilli heard a strange humming sound, then saw two aluminum-colored disks 200 m away. Near them were six mm of average height, slim build, dressed in "dark gray suits glued to their bodies." The disks were about 3.5 m wide, hovering 1 m above ground. They rose with a sharp whistling sound, while coconut trees below them bent double. Three more disks rose from behind the trees, and all five flew toward the Atlantic. (Humanoids 36) 443 Nov. 18, 1957 Aston (Great Britain). Mrs. Cynthia Appleton, 27, 1500 mother of two, saw the figure of a man appear near her fireplace while a whistling sound was audible. He was tall and fair, wore a tight-fitting plastic gar- ment, and seemed to communicate with her through telepathy, indicating he was looking for titanium and was coming from a world of peace and harmony. Sud- denly he disappeared. Mrs. Appleton had subsequent contacts with similar entities. (Humanoids 4) 444 Nov. 22, 1957 Gesten (Denmark). A shop owner saw a pyramid- shaped, luminous, transparent object fly fast across the road. As it was above 250 m away, he clearly saw two figures who looked like human beings, sitting one behind the other aboard the craft. (Personal) 445 Nov. 23, 1957 Tonopah (Nevada). Four disk-shaped objects on the 0630 ground were observed for 20 min from a distance of 15 m. When the witness tried to come closer, they took off with an unbearable humming sound. (Atic) 446 Nov. 25, 1957 Ugines (France). Two engineers were driving about 1430 200 m from the railroad crossing in Faverges when they saw a nearly spherical object at ground level, performing zig-zags on the road. They stopped and were amazed as the object simply vanished, leaving no trace. (Personal) 447 Dec., 1957 El Cajon (California). Edmund Rucker was awak- night ened by a roaring noise and saw a strange object land near his house. "Its windows were lighted, and I saw strange-looking heads there." An opening became visible and four creatures emerged. They had large heads, dome-like foreheads, and bulging eyeballs. They delivered a message to the witness in English, stating that they had philanthropic and scientific purposes. (FS Jul., 58) 448 Dec. 08, 1957 Woodward (Oklahoma). Between Woodward and 1750 Seiling, 12 km from the latter, an unknown flying object allegedly took complete control of a car with three passengers. The driver, an employee of an air- craft company, had turned the heater, windshield wiper, and radio on. He was nearing a hill in this wooded area when a bright light appeared ahead. It reminded the witness of the light from a mercury lamp. As a crash seemed imminent, the car slowed down by itself and stopped, as if the entire electrical circuit had failed. Over the vehicle was a disk 16 m in diameter with portholes around the periphery, emit- ting a current of hot air and a high-pitched sound. It had a dome on top and bottom. It rose as the car started by itself. The car was a 1954 Dodge Coronet without automatic transmission. The witness spent four hours with two Kirtland AFB officers who told him of similar observations. The case was never re- ported to Blue Book. (Personal) 449 Dec. 11, 1957 Chestnut (Louisiana). Mary Louise Tobin, a school- teacher, was driving on State Highway 1 when she saw an object that she compared to the rising sun, in the vicinity of a smoking car.

(FS Jul., 58) 450 Dec. 11, 1957 Ellsworth (Wisconsin). Many cars stopped to observe 1600 a silent, reddish, glowing disk, about 15 m in diam- eter, which flew 6 m above the ground at about 80 km/h. A small, windowless cabin was visible on the underside of the object. (FS Jul., 58) 451 Dec. 18, 1957 Old Saybrook (Connecticut). Mary Stan was awak- night ened by a brilliant light and saw through her east window the fuselage of a craft that hovered in mid- air. Aboard were two men, each with his right hand raised, wearing yellowish jackets. A third man joined the first two, then all lights went off inside the craft while it glowed like brass. A spinning antennalike de- vice was noted. A few minutes later it flew off. (FSR 60,3) 452 Dec. 21, 1957 Ponte Poran (Brazil). Mrs. Mendonca and five other 1830 persons saw a light in the south, which later appeared as two spherical objects coming closer to the witnesses on an oscillating course. One of them hovered close to the car while the other circled. They were shaped like a sphere surrounded by a flat ring, and chased the car for two hours over the deserted road. Estimated diameter: 5 m. (APRO Mar., 59) 453 Dec. 30, 1957 Drakestown (New Jersey). George Chowanski, an night auto mechanic was alerted by the barking of his dog and heard a whirring sound similar to that of an elec- tric shaver. A lighted object was observed by Chow- anski and his wife as it came within 60 cm of the ground. Two figures came out of the bottom of the object, walked around a clearing, and one picked up something before returning to the craft, which then took off. Total duration: 2 min. (FS Oct., 58) 454 Jan., 1958 Depew (New York). A lady who was driving on the 0130 New York State Thruway during a snow storm saw a large shape with a tall, luminous pole on the side of the road. Her car stalled, and the lights went off. Two figures, looking like animals or huge insects were observed near the pole. They soon disappared, and the object took off spinning. The witness was then able to start her car. She noted that the snow at the site had been melted and the grass was warm. (Binder; Magonia) 455 Jan. 04, 1958 Stavanger (Norway). A woodcutter reported that he saw an object land, and a very tall man with a tanned face, wearing a helmet, stepped from the machine. He went back in after a few minutes; the craft took off "with a noise like a flock of birds." Air Force offi- cers and policemen searched the snowcovered hill for traces. (FSR 58, 2) 456 Jan. 07, 1958 Aston (Great Britain). Two figures again appeared to Mrs. Appleton and spoke to her in English (see Case 443). (Humanoids 4) 457 Jan. 13, 1958 Farm Hill (Australia). Brian Crittendon, 21, was 2345 chased by a dome-shaped object that emitted a nar- row light beam toward the ground. He was so fright- ened that he drove home on a half-flat tire, followed for 5 km by the object, which was about 50 m away and 10 m above ground. It overtook his car at a speed exceeding 100 km/h.

As it came down toward the water, a noticeable cur- rent was created. No noise or occupants were noticed. After several leaps in mid-air, the craft flew off at "unbelievable" speed. (Personal) 470 Sep. 01, 1958 Laval (France). About 11 km before Laval, a busi- 2130 nessman coming from Paris suddenly saw a motion- less object, 10 m above ground, to the left of the road, 150 m away. It was shaped like two cones with a com- mon base and showed two rows of about ten openings in the middle section. It seemed about 20 m wide, metallic, with a light similar to that of a red traffic light shining through the windows. The witness had time to stop and maneuvered to get the object in his headlight beams. Throughout the observation a whistling sound such as that of a jet aircraft was heard. The object rose very slowly, flew off faster climbing out of sight. (119) 471 Sep. 21, 1958 Sheffield Lake (Ohio). A circular, flat object, 7 m in 0300 diameter, 2 m thick, hovering 1.5 m above ground, and making a jetlike sound was seen from a house by a civilian woman.

An occupant 2.5 m tall was photographed by the witness as he crossed the road and appeared to inspect the craft. He wore a blue coverall and luminescent heel- less boots, and had a bald head. The observation lasted 10 min, after which the object took off with a whining sound, sparks and smoke. The following day, before he had revaled anything about the case, Ladeleto was contacted by strange "newsmen" who appeared to know all the details of it. (Settimana Incom. Sep. 16, 62) 477 Dec. 20, 1958 Hoganas (Sweden). Near Domsten, Hans Gustavs- 0255 son, 35, and Stig Rydberg, 30, saw something in the woods and stopped their car to observe it.

In the window a sharply defined human shape, delineating a semi-transparent body, was visible. The apparition had a huge bald head. The witness screamed, awakening the two others, and they saw the apparition shrink and vanish "like a TV image when one turns off the set." (FSR 63, 2) 538 Jul. 30, 1962 Pasnembi (Brazil). A man driving near Pasnembi stopped when his engine failed and observed a cylindrial object, described as "a bottle with two necks," about 40 m long, 15 m high, which had landed on the road. Two men (one at either end of the craft), appeared to be changing some luminous signals. This lasted 10 min and the craft took off at high speed. In Alta, a number of people reported a bright object moving at high altitude. (136; FSR 62, 6) 539 Jul. 30, 1962 Bajeola Grande (Argentina). Roberto Mievres, 17, was riding his motorcycle when a tall being, with a head like a watermelon and three eyes, appeared as the engine stalled.

(CODOVNI 1962) 540 Aug. 02, 1962 Camba Punat Airport (Argentina). Luis Harvey, air- port manager, and his staff thought that an un- announced aircraft was about to land, as they saw a luminous object circling at high speed. It came down to hover about 1 m above the runway for some four min. It was spherical, spinning, and emitted flashes of blue, green and orange. When approached, it took off at very high speed. (FSR 64, 4) 541 Aug. 17, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Rivalino da Silva, a diamond evening prospector, told his associates that he had seen two strange dwarfs digging a hole near his house. They ran away as he came near them, and moments later an object took off from behind the bushes. It was shaped like a hat and surrounded with a red glow. (APRO Sep.,62) 542 Aug. 19, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Raimundo, the son of Rivalino night da Silva (see previous case), was awakened by the sound of steps and saw "a weird shadow" in the room. It was small and not human in shape. Voices were heard saying, "This one looks like Rivalino," and later that they would kill him. The family stayed on the alert all night. (APRO Sep., 62) 543 Aug. 20, 1962 Duas Pontes (Brazil). Raimundo da Silva (see previ- ous cases) testified before the police that while work- ing in a field, he saw two spherical objects hovering 2 m above ground, a few meters from the house. One was black with an antenna-like protrusion and a small tail; the other was black and white. Both emitted a humming sound and a flickering fire through an open- ing. The boy's father warned him to stay away as Rivalino walked toward the objects, praying. When he was 2 m away, the two spheres merged into one, raising dust from the ground and spreading a yellow mist that enveloped the man. The boy ran after his father, noting that the cloud had "an acrid smell." As it dissolved, everything had vanished. Police in- vestigation, headed by Lieutenant Lisboa, failed to reveal any clue. Many terrified people left the area. (APRO Sep., 62) 544 Sep., 1962 Orland (California). A. T. Gray, a dairy rancher, 2145 thought some lights in a field were those of a car. When coming nearer, he realized the object was ob- long with blunt edges and hovered about 7 m above the ground, making no noise. When Gray was 50 m away, the object came toward him, rose, and took off toward the southwest. (APRO Jul., 63) 545 Sep. 05, 1962 Mount Manfre (Italy). Second observation by Mr. night Siragusa (Case 531), who saw two figures over 2.10 m tall. The light from their belts prevented him from seeing them in detail. A large, spinning object, 25 m wide, top-shaped, hovered nearby. "From the under part, a metallic cylinder over 3 m long reached down almost to touch the road, with a small door, a sort of lift." (FSR 62, 6) 546 Sep. 13, 1962 Overfield (Great Britain). Myra Jones was driving 2320 between Overfield and Norris Hill when she saw a luminous, gray object, larger than a car with a dome on top.

(137; FSR 62, 6) 547 Sep. 15, 1962 Oradell (New Jersey). Two bright disks were first seen 1700 at 1700, then were seen again at 1800, at the state line. Two witnesses saw one round object with a fin on top and another under it at 1950, and reported that it was going down toward the Oradell reservoir. Three young men saw and heard the object as it touched the water. Another witness called police. The luminous object took off a few minutes later. Official investigation described it as bright, surrounded with a glow, the apparent size of a small plane 1 km away. It left toward the south. (Atic) 548 Sep. 18, 1962 Barcelos (Brazil). Three men working in a rubber plantation saw a large, disk-shaped object hover above the river. It emitted sparks, was of silvery color, and very brilliant.

A garage owner was driving through a evening rainstorm when he suddenly saw a group of figures 80 m away. He slowed down as they went away jerkily, and observed that they were bizarre, birdlike creatures. As they rushed toward the car, he drove past them in terror and saw them going back toward a luminous, blue object hovering in a field. They en- tered it as if "sucked into it," and a dull sound was heard before the object flew off. (FSR 68, 6) 552 Dec. 09, 1962 Bologna (Italy). Antonio Candau saw a circular ob- 2200 ject land in Cadivilla, 9 m away from him. It was about 5.5 m m diameter, and two men emerged from it, approaching within 2 m, and spoke incompre- hensible words. They wore yellow coveralls and a wide belt. Noting that the witness was afraid, one of them made a reassuring gesture with his hand, and the craft departed with a strange sound. (Settimana Incom. Dec. 30, 62) 553 Dec. 11, 1962 Chumbicha (Argentina). G. L. Colodrero and the di- dawn rector of the Cordoba Historial Museum were driv- ing from Catamarca to Cordoba when, 7 km away from Chumbicha, they saw seven objects on the ground of a mountain slope.

Their clothes were the same color as the craft, whose open door showed a strange light inside. The object was so highly pol- ished that "I would bet on a clear day you could not see it at five thousand feet." The occupants spoke sounds that were not understood and reentered the object. The door outline could not be seen when it was closed. (Personal) 633 Jan. 23, 1965 Williamsburg (Virginia). A 31-year-old man driving 0840 a '64 Cadillac was at the intersection of U.S. Highway 60 and State Route 14 when the engine failed, and he had to stop by the side of the road.
