Update History:

  • v1.46: Adding ~3700 events, translated from the French chronology Mini catalogue chronologique des observations OVNI by Belgian ufologist Godelieve Van Overmeire, 1935-2021. Note these events are from the old HTML version on archive.org, not the larger (10k event) PDF version. It is unclear if these events are copyrighted. I didn’t see a copyright in either the HTML or PDF versions.
  • v1.43: Added ~3160 events, translated from a French chronology to English using OpenAI, from rr0.org. I believe this chronology was composed by Jérôme Beau. Its license is here.
  • v1.40: Added digitized events/newspaper clippings from Frank Scully’s papers at the American Heritage Center in Laramie, WY, summarized the events from the timeline on the Disclosure Diaries website, and added more misc. events. Fixed auto-translation issue in the search page.
  • v1.38: Added a client-side search engine. There are a bunch of features I’m going to add to this engine, for now it can only search for keywords in the desc, location and and reference fields.
  • v1.37: Updated intro text, added total number of events to each event year, added a few 1800’s events.
  • v1.36: Extracted and summarized the events in the book It Didn’t Start with Roswell by Philip L. Rife. Also extracted the military UFO events from Richard Dolan’s book UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up, 1941–1973.
  • v1.34: Added more modern events, 1917 Mystery Airplane newspaper articles.
  • v1.33: More events: Events from George D. Fawcett, short AI summaries of Stringfield’s 1978 MUFON symposium presentation, and short AI summaries of the pre-industrial era sighting events from the book Wonders in the Sky: Unexplained Aerial Objects from Antiquity to Modern Times.
  • v1.30: Added 203 Mystery Helicopter/mutilation related events (1970’s-1980’s) compiled by author/researcher Thomas R. Adams (1945-2015) (or see here), from his book The Choppers - and the Choppers, Mystery Helicopters and Animal Mutilations, minor fixes
  • v1.28: Added KWIC (Key Word in Context) index.
  • v1.27: Imported Anonymous PDF’s contents, originally from here, with fixed URL’s
  • v1.23-1.24: Added a handful of key historical events, such as Edward Tauss the head of CIA UFO disinformation in the 50’s
  • v1.22: Fixing the date of Dr. Eric W. Davis’s March, 2020 classified briefing to the Senate (I had it listed as March 2019) - info from NY Times. Basic locations added to Eberhart records using OpenAI.
  • v1.20: Split up into 5 parts, to work around iPhone web browser limits. Minor spelling and grammer fixes throughout timeline.
  • v1.15: Eberhart records now have basic locations, thanks to OpenAI’s Davinci-3 AI model. They aren’t perfect, but it’s a good start to geocoding them.
  • v1.14: Added nuclear test data, over 2000 records, from the Worldwide Nuclear Explosions paper by Yang, North, Romney, and Richards. Note the locations in the paper are approximate, and the yields are not super accurate, which are two problems I’ll fix over time. I improved the coordinates of the earliest USA/USSR tests by looking them up from Wikipedia.
  • v1.13: Split up the timeline into 4 parts. Still not the best solution, but it avoids croaking browsers.
  • v1.12: Added *U* database record data, using a custom event description decoder to handle his 1k+ abbreviations and custom syntax
  • v1.11: Crawled all ~10.5k unique URL’s in this timeline using curl and fixed dead URL’s to use archive.org.
  • v1.10: Added NICAP DB data.

Important Notes:

Best viewed on a desktop/laptop, not a mobile device. On Windows, Firefox works best, followed by Edge, then Chrome.

I’ve split up the timeline into 4 parts, to reduce their sizes: distant past up to 1949, 1950-1959, 1960-1979, and 1980-present.

The majority of the events in this chronology are sighting related, however it’s important to be aware that this is a timeline of
UFO/UAP related events, not necessarily or exclusively UFO sightings. This is not exclusively a UFO sightings timeline or database.

Some sighting reports or events appear multiple times in this timeline because they appear in more than one data source. I view this as a useful feature.

Currently, the events are not sorted by time of day, only by date. Some sources have separate “time” fields, but most don’t. This will be fixed once the event times are automatically extracted from the description fields.

A few events don’t have firm dates, for example “Summer of 1947”, or “Late July 1952”. In these instances the compilation code uses fixed dates I selected for date sorting purposes. (See the code for the specific dates.)

Source Code:

This website is created automatically using a C++ command line tool called “ufojson”. It parses the raw text and Markdown source data to JSON format, which is then converted to a single large web page using pandoc. This tool’s source code and all of the raw source and JSON data is located here on github.

Event 32178 (50D1A2A0)

Date: Early 1970’s
Description: 2:30–3:00 a.m. Two young men in Furnace Creek, California, are followed by a red ball of light the size of a beach ball. They get scared and run ahead to their house, slamming and locking the door behind them. The ball stops at the edge of their yard, hovering and oscillating in size. After 4–5 minutes, the ball moves away and creates a vortex, causing stones to rise and circle in the air. They can hear the sound of the stones hitting together. Then the light blinks out, and the rocks crash down onto the road.

Event 32179 (04702506)

Date: 1970
Location: USA
Description: (Translated from French) At the same time (with the launch of the BMEWS alert satellites since Spring 1960) “IMEWS” (Integrated Early Warning System) were launched, equipped with two infrared cameras, one of which was equipped with a large diameter mirror, in order to discriminate between real rocket launches and simple reflections of the sun on clouds, which were the source of very numerous false alarms for the previous satellites. (…) The alert, if any, is transmitted to the nearest receiving station, in particular those of Guam or Australia. (…) These IMEWS are placed in geostationary orbit and not simply geosynchronous like those of the BMEWS. They are huge drums 3 m high and 3 m in diameter flanked by four solar panel panels giving them a wingspan of 7 meters. (From 1970 onwards)

Description: (Translated from French) The Americans call the listening satellites “ELINT” (Electronical Intelligence) and deny possessing them. In retaliation, the Soviets launched a very large number of them since 1970. The first of them was Cosmos 389, placed on an orbit between 600 and 650 km altitude approximately, inclined at 81°. Their launch frequency has gone up to 4 or 5 (per year) eight years later. (From 1970)

(vog: yet another unnatural gestation revealed by Jean FERGUSON… he does it on purpose!) Especially since the offspring she gave birth to has unknown physiological characteristics. Male, of human appearance, he can breathe safely in water or any liquid environment and can sniff a dozen deadly gases for ordinary humans. He has the gift of telekinesis, he can transmit his thoughts and read those of the people around him. So far, the father has not shown up to give a solid explanation about this “space cutting”. . .

Event 32189 (427D6CF6)

Date: 1970
Description: Author William Torbitt (a pseudonym for David Copeland, a lawyer in Waco, TX) claims several intelligence community sources give him information on a group running counterintelligence operations for advanced aerospace (and possibly UAP-related) projects: the Defense Industrial Security Command and a CIA front company located in Switzerland Permindex. Torbitt claims DISC’s offices are at 3990 East Broad Street, Columbus, OH and Redstone Arsenal.

He claims DISC includes the security division of NASA and includes awareness among a tight group of key personnel including J. Edgar Hoover, Wernher Von Braun, William Sullivan, Clay Shaw, and former FBI employee Guy Bannister. It is alleged Permindex is aware of advanced UAP projects and protects them with surveillance and intimidation, and possibly, assassination.

Event 32194 (E0DE4B15)

Date: 1/1/1970
Location: CANADA, Vancouver
Description: (Translated from French) (Source: From Our UFO Visitors, by John Magor) It was close to five o’clock in the morning when Miss Doreen Kendall, a nurse at the Cowichan District Hospital, noted that one of the strangers in her care was agitated. Deciding that he was too hot, she opened the window. As she drew back the curtains, she was met with a flash of light in her eyes. It was still dark outside, and about 20 m away, above the children’s pavilion to her left, there was a large luminous object, lighting up the area as if it were broad daylight. It was a circular object, the base was silver, but like a ball. All around it were lights in a necklace. The dome was transparent, made of glass and she could see inside. There were two figures, men, she thought. The one in front seemed taller, or was on a raised part. She looked on with immense curiosity but without any fear. Their heads were in something dark, tightly closed. She saw the craft rise, tilting, and she saw the figures from head to knees and they seemed to be facing chairs. They wore tight clothing of the same color as what they wore on their heads, but their hands were free and seemed human, with skin like that of the Earthlings. She saw a kind of panel, like a huge dashboard, going from the back of the object to the top, as if embedded in metal. This is how she forgot about Nurse Frieda Wilson, who was in the same room. She felt that she must not make any noise, nor call her colleague. The man in front slowly turned towards her, but his face was also covered, he touched the other man on the back, and the latter deliberately maneuvered a kind of lever and the saucer began to rotate slowly, still close to the building.

Description: 5:00 a.m. Registered nurse Doreen Kendall is looking out a window at the Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan, British Columbia, and sees a bright, Saturn-shaped object about 50 feet in diameter hovering one story above her, about 60 feet off the ground and 40 feet away. It has a row of lights around its middle. She can see two humanoid figures in dark, tight-fitting clothing and wearing headgear in the upper portion. One stands at an instrument panel, with the other behind it. The second being looks directly at Kendall, then touches the first being, who moves a lever, apparently causing the craft to tilt down and provide a view of its interior. Kendall calls for other witnesses, who arrive in time to see the UFO leave.

Event 32204 (574E06FA)

Date: 1/7/1970
Location: FINLAND, Imjärvi (Heinola)
Description: (Translated from French) Aarno Heinonen, 36 years old, and Esko Viljo, 38 years old, were skiing in a forest 16 km north of Heinola. At 4:45 PM, as the sun was beginning to set, they decided to rest. A kind of buzzing sound was then heard and, looking up, Heinonen saw in the air a light of strong intensity that began a wide turn and came in their direction. It descended and stopped right in the space, surrounded by a kind of luminous grayish mist that manifested itself by pulsations, 15 m from the witnesses. Through the mist they saw an object of metallic appearance, the base of 3 m in diameter had three globes on a rim and in the middle a kind of large tube of about 25 cm in diameter. The mist gradually dissipated and when the object descended to 4 m from the ground the buzzing stopped. A beam of light came out of the central tube and a creature of about 90 cm appeared at ground level in this tube of light. Its face was pale like wax, on the head it wore a shiny conical helmet, and it was dressed in a light gray overalls that shone. The humanoid was wearing green boots. In his hand he held a black box from which a blinding flash suddenly emerged. The mist reformed around the object and the illuminated circle emitted green and red sparks. The fog thickened, the light trembled like the flame of a candle and returned to the tube. Then it was as if the mist scattered and everything had disappeared. Heinonen felt weak, paralyzed on the right side. It took them two hours to cover the 2 km that separated them from the village. He had headaches, vomiting, his blood pressure dropped, his balance affected. He was cold, despite the sedatives he had very sore neck, stomach and back for a while and could not return to work. Viljo had a red and swollen face and lost his sense of balance. He felt a kind of lightness in his legs and his chest and hands were covered with red spots. Other people went to the observation site and were sick for two days. (Inforespace n° 22, p. 2 and 3) Arno HEINONEN (36 years old) and Esko VILJO (38 years old): AH; heat and numbness in the side exposed to the UFO; respiratory difficulties; inability to work; EC: swellings, redness, loss of balance, headaches

Event 32205 (F55A1085)

Date: 1/7/1970
Description: (Translated from French) Finnish competitive cross-country skiers, lumberjack Aarno Heinonen and farmer Esko Viljo, find themselves in the forest near Imjãrvi (Finland). They decide to rest in a clearing and watch the stars rise as twilight falls. The two men hear a buzzing sound and see in the sky a very bright light approaching from the north. It turns around at the clearing level and descends towards them from the south. It is surrounded by a red-gray luminous mist. When the cloud has descended to about 15 m from the ground, they see in its center a disc of about 3 m in diameter. The disc stays at this height, continuing to buzz. Then, according to Heinonen: The immense disc began to descend with the red-gray mist, which became thinner and transparent. It stopped at a height of 3 or 4 m, so close that I could touch it with my ski stick. We saw that its upper part was topped with a dome. Along the lower edge was a kind of raised part with 3 spheres with domes spaced at equal distances. From the center of its lower part protruded a tube about 25 cm in diameter, from which suddenly came an intense beam of light. I suddenly felt as if someone had pulled me back. At the same second, I saw the creature. It stood in the middle of the light beam, with a black box in its hands. It was about 90 cm tall, with very thin arms and legs. Its face was like pale wax. The nose looked more like a hook than a nose. The ears were very small and narrowed at the face. The creature wore a kind of suit in a light green material and a shiny conical helmet like metal. The being points the black box at Heinonen, and a blinding, flickering yellow light takes him as a target. A red mist begins to cover the area and red, green and purple sparks begin to rain around the skiers like candles about 10 cm long floating in long curves. The mist becomes thicker and thicker, until, according to Viljo, the beam suddenly began to decrease, rose like a flickering flame and was sucked into the opening of the craft. Then it was as if the veil of mist had dissolved. The air around us was empty! After a few minutes, Heinonen realizes that he can no longer use his left leg, the one that was most exposed to the strange light beam. Viljo supports his friend to his home, about 3 km further. In the months that followed, Heinonen suffered from severe memory loss, constant pain, exhaustion and headaches. For 2 months, his urine was like black coffee. Viljo suffered from facial swelling, headaches and eye problems. (January 7th, 4:45 PM)

Description: 4:45 p.m. Two skiers, lumberjack Aarno Heinonen and farmer Esko Viljo, at Imjärvi, Finland, watch a disc- shaped, buzzing UFO approach them and hover. It is so close to Heinonen that he could touch it with his ski pole. From an opening in the center of the object’s bottom, a bright light beam is emitted, creating an illuminated area of 3 feet in diameter on the snow beneath it, edged with black. A red gray mist descends again; when it clears, both men can see, only 10 feet away, a 3-foot tall humanoid creature standing in the illuminated area, carrying in its hands a black box with a pulsating yellow light. Its arms and legs are very thin, its face pale like wax, and its nose hooked; it wears a light green coverall with darker green knee boots, white gauntlets, and a conical metallic helmet. Then the mist again descends, and long red, green, and purple sparks float out from the lighted area. A sort of flame rises from this spot and enters the UFO; then the mist and the UFO vanish. After this experience, Heinonen finds his right leg numb, and he vomits and passes black urine; Viljo also suffers severe physiological effects. Heinonen claims, two years later, a series of contacts with a female spacewoman.

Event 32210 (6A7830FA)

Date: 1/7/1970
Description: At 3:45 in the afternoon two cross-country skiers, Aarno Heinonen and Esko Viljo, heard a buzzing sound and saw a round, ten foot wide metallic object with a flat bottom and a dome in the sky outside of Imjarvi, Finland. It was wrapped by a reddish-gray mist. The UFO descended to within ten feet of the snow-covered ground in a forest clearing and the buzzing sound ceased. It was described as being so close to Heinonen that he could have touched it with his ski pole.

The two men next saw a beam of light come from an opening in the bottom of the craft. It created an illuminated area three feet in diameter on the snow beneath it, edged with black. A red gray mist descended again, and when it cleared both men could see, only 10 feet away, a three foot tall little man on the ground standing in the illuminated area. He had thin arms and legs, a pale waxy complexion with a hook nose, and wore a light green coverall uniform with darker green knee boots, white gauntlets, and a conical metallic helmet.

He held a small black box at his chest level with a pulsating yellow light from which a beam was emitted. Then the mist descended again, and long red, green and purple “sparks” floated out from the lighted area. A flame of sorts rose from this spot and the being entered the UFO. Then the mist vanished along with the UFO. After this experience, Heinonen found that his right leg was numb. He vomited and he passed urine that was black in color. Viljo also suffered severe physiological effects. Aarno Heinonen would go on to experience other close encounters, two years later, in a series of contacts with a fair skinned female being.

Description: The UFO Subcommittee of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics sponsors a panel that meets in New York City to discuss differing viewpoints on UFOs. Among the panel members are Hynek, McDonald, Thornton Page, Gordon D. Thayer, and Philip Klass. The subcommittee, led by Joachim P. Kuettner, consists of scientists with no previous position on UFOs and reaches several middle-of-the-road conclusions. It criticizes the NAS position that the ETH is the least likely explanation and rejects McDonald’s position that it is the “least unsatisfactory.” It criticizes the Condon report, in which the conclusions do not match the data, and recommends a moderate-level, ongoing study of UFOs.

Location: BELGIUM, Rhode St Genèse (not Uccle-Calevoet)
Description: (Translated from French) The witness, having parked his car, began his usual jogging session in this rural area. After a journey, he followed a field with wide furrows. Suddenly he saw a vertical wall of blue and fluorescent light as if placed on the furrows. The shape of this wall of light was regular, a few meters from the path. Despite his astonished fear, the witness approached this palisade of light which, suddenly, collapsed like a mass of light snakes, forming a single entity with interruptions whose ends were like cut off. This wriggling agglomerate stretched like a rope and flew undulating through the fields, progressing in waves, as if it followed the height and hollows of the furrows taken across. Then, without stopping, it disappeared towards a wooded area. The witness then discovered the traces of the phenomenon on the crest of the furrows. He returned the next evening to the scene without discovering or observing anything. (1970, January 24 (not 23))

Event 32221 (DDD098B3)

Date: 1/24/1970
Location: France
Description: (Translated from French) Saturday, early evening, around 7:30 PM. Mr. Herbosch was walking in the middle of Avenue de la Réserve when his gaze was drawn to something faintly luminous, about 20 meters in front of him, to his left, on the vacant lot, raised at this point by about 75 cm. It was then 7:45 PM. The witness stopped and saw that it was a kind of “stain on the ground”, oval in shape, several meters in size, 7 or 8 meters at first glance, which suddenly became very bright, like a phosphorescent light green color. (…) He was looking for the lamp or light source that should have produced such an effect. Indeed, it was logical, only a powerful projector could have been the source of this stain on the ground. But no beam of light or any device was visible. There was NOTHING. Suddenly, when he was barely 10 meters away from this stain, the witness stopped dead in his tracks, so much so that what he saw seized him, bewildered him and scared him. (What follows took place in 20 or 30 seconds maximum). The stain became brighter and brighter; it seemed to vibrate, then it swelled or inflated, a bit like a balloon, first laid flat on the ground, then suddenly inflated. The luminous bell thus formed grew even more, and the top reached a height of about 5 meters. It also looked a bit like the dome that could be seen on old steam locomotives. The coloration became almost blinding and the green color became paler, tending more towards neon white. This mass of light vibrated in a frightening way but still kept a clear bell shape and seemed to be made up of thousands of tiny luminous particles moving and swarming in all directions inside the bell. This gave the impression of terrible nervousness. When it reached its maximum height, this insolent apparition violently illuminated the whole landscape, as well as the curtain of trees at the end of the vacant lot. These trees, which are about 100 meters from Avenue de la Réserve, were illuminated in their entire height, as if by a flash of extraordinary power. Mr. Herbosch was also able to notice through the bell which was translucent despite the strong brightness, that the base was perfectly elliptical. The spectacle was quite frightening, all the more so since it took place in total silence. No heat effect or smell was noticed. At that moment, in the face of this quite unusual and unknown phenomenon to him, Mr. Herbosch was seized by extreme fear, but he stayed there, frozen, paralyzed in front of this strange scene. Immediately after illuminating the landscape, which lasted a few seconds, the bell suddenly collapsed or deflated to take its initial form of a stain, identical to what it was at the beginning of the observation. The brightness became weak again and again of a pale green color. Then the stain moved on the ground of the vacant lot and moved away from the witness (perhaps at 10 or 15 km/h) and disappeared towards the northwest, in the direction of a villa under construction at the time…

Event 32258 (B140530E)

Date: 2/18/1970
Location: USA, Glacier Park (Montana)
Description: (Translated from French) Leona Nielson was with two friends in her mountain cabin. They had had a pleasant evening and had gone to bed around one o’clock in the morning. But Leona couldn’t fall asleep. Her room faced the Flat River flowing down the hill. Suddenly the room was brightly lit by a light coming from below and she went out onto the balcony to see what it was. She then saw, in the field on the edge of the river, an enormous flying saucer about 20 meters in diameter with a platform 2 meters wide all around it. Two strange beings were busy on this platform as if they were making a repair, and probably using electric welding, as sparks could be seen. These beings were of normal size, bareheaded, wearing white overalls and seemed to walk and work like human beings. With her two friends who had joined her, Leona watched the repair which lasted for nearly an hour, then the sparks stopped. The two humanoids went back into their saucer, it immediately started off at a fantastic speed and disappeared into the clouds. (February 18, 1970)

Location: CHINA, Weinanzheng, Gansu
Description: (Translated from French) One night at 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning, I went out to do a natural need. The weather was nice, the sky was all clear. On the porch, I instinctively looked up and saw, in the sky, to the northeast, something huge higher than the moon. This thing was luminous, 1.30m high and 1m wide, more than 2m long. The object looked exactly like a transparent door suspended in the firmament. Its luminosity seemed to me similar to that of a cinema screen. I was very surprised and stayed in the courtyard for about ten minutes without moving. (…) I went into the room to wake up my two other companions, but they were sleeping deeply and I didn’t succeed. As I was cold and scared, I didn’t dare go out again to see the strange phenomenon. The next day I fell ill and, for three days, I had a headache, I was always feeling like vomiting.

Event 32284 (7BB570D7)

Date: 3/26/1970
Location: SPAIN, Gabriel y Galand Dam
Description: (Translated from French) Nicolas Santos was driving when he could follow the maneuvers of an object of discoidal shape surrounded by portholes and surmounted by a dome. A reddish halo surrounded this thing that came to stop two hundred meters from the witness. Suddenly, under the object appeared several beams of bright light directed towards the ground. (…) “Suddenly the object started to move. It was something extraordinary. It gathered its light beams like a bird gathers its wings. The light folded in on itself gently and simultaneously the halo surrounded the craft again and it moved away.” Following the observation, the witness had to be treated for conjunctivitis. That night, for an undetermined cause, there was a power outage in the dam’s installations. (Jean-Marie DOUCHET - Nostra - 24.12.1980) It was, the witnesses said, something extraordinary, an enormous disc of about 15 m in diameter and 3 m high, flying horizontally, “majestically” and without noise. Very slowly, impressive to behold. The spectacle lasted 3 hours. It was evolving at an altitude of about 200 meters. A dozen powerful light beams illuminated the ground: a very particular light, very similar in intensity to fluorescent light, but of a slightly yellow-greenish color. On the side of the craft, portholes were faintly lit. Fairy spectacle more than frightening since one of the main witnesses, Mr. Santos Nicolas, a teacher in Guijo de Grenadilla, said: “I couldn’t believe it. It had been more than an hour that I could contemplate something wonderful, something so unusual that it really couldn’t belong to our world…” This long observation caused the witness’s vision to be altered, a burning sensation in the eyes. The ophthalmologist diagnosed conjunctivitis.

Event 32292 (A2C13E91)

Date: 3/28/1970
Locations: Cradle Hill; Warminster, Wiltshire, England
Description: 11:00 p.m. About 30 UFO spotters gathered on Cradle Hill, just outside Warminster, Wiltshire, England, see a flashing purple light. One of their sensors buzzes, indicating a strong magnetic field, and one observer (Norman Foxwell) takes photos that appear in the July/August 1970 Flying Saucer Review. But the UFO is actually a light beam from a high-intensity purple spot-lamp operated by a group of UFO debunkers, among them physicist David I. Simpson. Foxwell himself is part of the skeptical group (having pre-exposed a spurious UFO image), as is the individual who operated the bogus magnetic-field sensor. The hoax is revealed six years later.

Date: 4/5/1970
Description: Internal McDonnell Douglas documents state Project Skylite was a pitched effort to replicate UAP observables that didn’t materialize. The term “DFO” or “Douglas Flying Object” is given as a reference to the concept of creating a craft that mimics UAP behavior. Bob Wood, Chan Thomas, Paul Wilson, Joe Brown and Stanton Friedman are all names attached to the proposed project that ultimately received no funding.

Description: (Translated from French) Finally, there was the aborted Apollo 13 mission, which forced the return to Earth of the lunar module that was supposed to rest on the moon forever. Inside its sides, however, was a small nuclear generator (4 kilograms of plutonium) destined to power the scientific equipment that the astronauts were to deploy on the moon. This module fell into the Tonga Trench in the middle of the Pacific. The surveys that have been carried out since then fortunately show no modification of the underwater environment. (Note from Vog: this module is supposed to still be intact in the sea, off the Fiji Islands). (April 11, 1970)

Event 32320 (84A9469D)

Date: 4/15/1970
Description: Kalle Tiihonen, age 39, a locally well known and respected retired athlete, had just come from the sauna and was drinking coffee in his kitchen in Kursu, Salla, Finland at around 5 p.m. when he and his family heard a sound resembling a swarm of bees. He then had the feeling that someone was staring at him from the doorway behind him. He turned around and saw a small creature about 1.2 meters in height, clad in a tight fitting shiny green suit and helmet. The creature had very dark, large eyes, with a human look. Tiihonen believed that the creature had not come in through the door since he would have heard some noise. For several moments they stared at each other, and then Tiihonen asked the creature where he was from. “From the space,” was the answer. Tiihonen was unsure if he in fact heard the answer or if it was a mental message. In an effort to make conversation Tiihonen asked the alien if the Apollo 13 astronauts, then stranded in space, would get back home safely. “Yes they will”, was the answer. Tiihonen spoke with the being of other subjects for some time, but could not recall later what they spoke about, other than the creature promised to return. It took a step backwards and disappeared in an instant. Tiihonen again heard the noise resembling a swarm of bees. Tiihonen’s eight-year-old son was sitting in another room during the encounter and heard his father talking to someone, but the dividing wall kept him from seeing the humanoid. However, he did see a bright object land on the grass outside, and also saw it lift off. Tiihonen ran to the sauna where his wife was and told her about his encounter. After the incident, Tiihonen was unable to sleep for three nights in a row, and experienced a sort of malaise for over a week.

Locations: Lake Anten, Västra Götaland, Sweden; Enebacken; Gothenburg, Sweden
Description: Around midnight. Several independent groups of witnesses to the west of Lake Anten, Västra Götaland, Sweden, watch a red, glowing sphere fly around the lake and neighboring areas. It occasionally sends out a beam of light to the ground. Some of the observers get the impression that the beams originate on the ground rather than from the object. The next morning a few of the observers get into boats and sail to the spot where the sphere was seen hovering. In one corner of the garden of an isolated farmhouse named Enebacken, they find three round marks, one foot in diameter and 1.5 inches deep, burned into the ground in the shape of an equilateral triangle. A UFO group in Gothenburg, Sweden, takes soil samples to a laboratory for gamma-ray testing and finds significant non-background radiation at a peak that seems to derive from cesium-137, a radioactive isotope.

I suddenly noticed that 2 of the stars were moving… in a circle around a common center while maintaining their position around two opposite points of the diameter, as would for example two small paint strokes at the two opposite edges of a microcross turning on a turntable. They were making about 30 turns/min, in the opposite direction of the hands of a clock, at a constant speed; the brightness of the objects was lower than that of Acturus, a little lower than that of Alpha, Beta and Gamma in the Great Bear. They suddenly stopped. (…) They remained absolutely still, then they began to move away from each other and the one that was heading south suddenly stopped… “The star” that had started to move north continued its march.

Event 32368 (6900613F)

Date: 5/29/1970
Location: Washington, D.C.
Description: John L. Acuff, an experienced manager but not a UFO researcher, becomes the new president of NICAP. He is the former executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers [now the Society for Imaging Science and Technology], which has cooperated with NICAP on photoanalysis but also has military and CIA connections. Acuff and G. Stuart Nixon dismantle the NICAP system of affiliates and state subcommittee system that have promoted the organization for years. Regional members are told to operate independently from one another; cooperation is discouraged. Criticism of the government’s UFO policy is no longer permitted and NICAP turns into a mere “sighting collection center.” Nixon is appointed executive director.

Date: 6/1970
Location: Emerald Beach, New South Wales

A circular object rises from behind some woods 1,600 feet from the road. It hovers for 30 seconds at an altitude of 66 feet. Relative to the trees, the object appears to be about 33 feet in diameter, and flames seem to shoot from its base. It slowly returns to the ground, where it is partially obscured by trees, but it continues to emit beams of light from its top and sides. Fearful, the driver leaves the area. Ufologist Bill Chalker accompanies the witness to the landing site, where they discover six circles of dead grass of varying sizes and burned trees.

Event 32383 (59115D39)

Date: 6/4/1970
Description: In Evillers, Doubs department, France in 1970, six children reported seeing four three-and-a-half-foot tall humanoid beings. The bulky humanoids wore red tops with black straps, and carried large sacks on their belts. They also saw a strange gray “dog” creature that jumped a distance of 40 feet. At around 2:45 p.m. Marie, age 10, was standing on the road opposite a house that was being used as a storehouse and stable, when she saw a figure at a windowpane-less second floor window. The being was the size of a child, but had a big protruding stomach. She told other children and several of them, led by Noel, age 12, entered the building. Noel saw a small person about 3.5 feet tall in a red sweater with a black shoulder strap across it, which he chased down the stairs and outdoors to the pasture.

That evening at 6:30 p.m. Bertrand, age 10, was near the building when he noticed a “boy” about 3.5 feet tall standing beside it. He had a big belly and was wearing a red sweater crossed by a wide black strap. This “boy” ran around behind the building. A short time later Noel, Simon, and Barthelemy all saw a long gray animal, which they called a “dog”, make a giant leap from the second floor window (about 12 feet high), and landed on the ground some 40 feet from the house. It left footprints “like a calf’s.” Then a small person like those seen earlier came out of the barn and called the “dog” to him with a snap of his fingers. He then passed a thick leash around its neck. Then three more such beings appeared, all alike except that one lacked a large stomach. They wore black hats with a peak behind. All four, with the “dog”, then began to run very rapidly down the road away from the village. Two trucks passed and as they did the little men and their “dog” nimbly jumped off the road and hid. They ran out of sight. The next day the “dog’s” paw prints were found. Six days later, the building mysteriously caught fire and burned to the ground.

The responsible (…) immediately mobilized hundreds of militiamen to surround the hill. That night the sky was covered and black as ink. (…) But after an hour, the flying object, ejecting a powerful white light, forced the line of militiamen and quickly rose into the sky. (1970, Summer)

Event 32398 (A159F75F)

Date: 6/21/1970
Description: Paul Foster, in the St. Helliers section of Auckland, New Zealand, saw a figure about 20 yards away from him while working on a car. It was facing in the opposite direction. Viewed from the rear, the humanoid was about 5’9" tall and wore a one-piece blue coverall, the legs of which were tucked into mud covered boots. The man carried a leather case on his left hip attached to a strap over his right shoulder, and was holding a box-like object to his face with a periscope like extender sticking out and up to the right side. This periscope device was pointed away from the observer to the north, toward the sun. The figure was blond with short-cropped hair. He walked dragging his feet, as if fatigued. Foster glanced away thinking it was perhaps a mailman, but when he realized it was Sunday, he knew this could not be. When he again looked up the figure had gone. Foster rushed out in search of him but could find no trace.

Event 32402 (9CED7090)

Date: 6/26/1970
Location: BRAZIL, Rio de Janeiro
Description: (Translated from French) Joao Aguiar, a policeman, drew the attention of Mrs. Nazaré to what was happening in front of them in the sea: was a boat capsizing, with water spraying out in all directions? The occupants of the boat were in the water and gesticulating in their shiny clothes with something on their heads. They then seemed to be working on the boat’s dome! It had a non-shiny metallic look and measured 4 to 6 meters. The policeman went to get help, Mrs. Nazaré and her family watched through binoculars. The phenomenon was 700 or 1000m away. After 20 minutes of immobility, the object approached a rocky outcrop 100m from the beach and stayed there for half an hour. Then it took off towards the southeast, gliding on the surface of the water with the sound of a motorboat. At that moment the policeman returned and observed the UFO with other witnesses. Its lower part was hexagonal with colored lights, green-yellow, white-red. Appearing metallic on the water, once in flight it seemed transparent and they saw two passengers seated inside. It disappeared silently. At the spot where the craft had been, one of the children saw a kind of white hoop, which disappeared, reappeared in the company of a yellow body, which floated half-emerged, it floated towards the beach and was followed by a green fringe. The yellow body made a 90° turn and left towards Gavea. The white hoop did the same and the witnesses lost sight of them. (Inforespace n° 8, p. 34, 35) Mrs. Maria Machado was looking out the window while preparing dinner and saw a gray disc, topped with a transparent dome, sailing on the ocean. Two silhouettes in luminous clothing were working on the deck. After 40 minutes the object left, leaving behind it a white mass floating towards the distance.

Description: (Translated from French) … one evening at 9 o’clock, my comrades and I were walking on the way back after a movie session. Hardly arrived in front of the improvised office on a deserted ground, we saw in the sky, in the northeast, a yellow lantern. More than ten people were already there to watch. (…) It was a luminous object in the shape of a hat inclined of 90°: its apparent diameter was more than one third of a meter. The whole seemed to be in a glass mask. The part of the dome appeared less transparent than the rest. The central part was brilliantly illuminated as if there was a powerful lamp inside. The luminosity remained stable during two minutes. When the object passed above us, it was at a hundred meters of the ground. My colleague Zhou Paizhong … immediately had the idea to go and get a long view … The object occupied the whole field of the eyepiece but we did not see the details of the inside of the luminous hat, which was heading towards the southwest and was getting further and further away, to finally become a small point in the eyepiece of our theodolite.

Description: 3:00 a.m. A 33-year-old Port Monmouth, New Jersey, housewife wakes up and sees a “big round ball” with an “eerie white glow” hovering over the meadows across the street. She watches it bouncing back and forth for 15 minutes as a series of red lights flash in sequence across it. The size is about 25–30 feet wide. The streetlight has gone out and comes back on when the object leaves. Her son and brother-in-law later find three imprints 30–40 feet apart in the shape of a triangle in the meadow. They also find circles impressed in the grass, the largest 15–20 feet in diameter. Then they find tracks “going to the creek like they had dragged some small round thing into the ditch” as well as “two sets of a dozen imprints which were about two feet apart. They were curved like raindrops. It was very visible, the grass was all crushed down, there was mud on the banks of the creek, and there were signs of the tracks in the mud.” One week later, the light returns and crosses the field across the street. The family television, the car ignition, and the telephone behave strangely for days afterward.

Description: Sequoyah Trueblood was sitting by his pool at his townhouse in Laurel, Maryland, watching his children swimming with his wife sitting next to him. Without knowing why, he felt compelled to leave. He got up, went into the house, changed his clothes, packed a small bag, drove to the airport and took a plane to Oklahoma City. A friend then drove him to Norman, Oklahoma. He felt strange and wanted to lie down, so went to lie down in his friend’s bedroom. He was lying down relaxing when he saw a vortex of swirling lights “like a rainbow” into which he was sucked. Mr. Trueblood then found himself standing in a beautiful garden surrounded by hedges. He felt wide awake. In front of him he saw a silvery saucer-shaped craft and a shimmering small silver being standing on steps that came down from the bottom of the craft. The being had a grayish complexion and had a large baldhead with large eyes. The witness sensed that the being was “androgynous,” neither male nor female. The being communicated telepathically and told him that he had been sent to take him because “they” wanted to talk to him. He agreed to go and walked up the steps. Once inside the craft he heard no sound, but through a small window he could see the moon, the sun, and “millions of stars” go by in an instant. Soon the craft was hovering over a beautiful white city in what he believed was another planet or universe. He next found himself down on the ground. The people in the city appeared to be both male and female, wore white robes, and were fair skinned with “hair that was glowing like the color of sunlight.” The small being then took him down a street lined with beautiful white buildings three stories tall to a clearing in the woods that seemed like a park. There were a number of people there, and a male said to him that if he would “pay attention.” The people told him that they did not need food, for the air they breathed was converted into what was needed to sustain life. A leader figure told him that he had been brought here to show him the potential of the human race. Soon he asked to be returned, and was taken back into the craft, through the vortex, and found himself back in bed.

Event 32431 (A2FC7809)

Date: 7/12/1970
Location: CHINA, Jiala, Taiwan Province.
Description: (Translated from French) At around 5 pm, a UFO descended slowly from the sky and landed in a field (…) The witness is named Cheng Gangdang. He was in a field with his wife to pull out wild grasses, when they suddenly heard a strange noise above them. They looked up and saw an object flying as bright as a diamond. The object was transparent. Its diameter was about 3 arms. The bottom was pointed and the top was conical. Several lights were seen on the body of the object, like electric bulbs, which lit up in turn. Inside, it seemed that there were many instruments. The object flew quickly spinning on itself and it was surrounded by a misty halo. (…) The unknown object descended slowly near a fruit tree and landed without ceasing to spin like a top. This object did not make any noise when it turned (…) Its rotation speed resembled that of children’s tops. On the ground it did not leave any clear traces. Ten minutes after its landing, the object raised a cloud of dust and it rose quickly spinning. First it moved back to the north, then when it reached a certain height in the sky, it flew away in a flash towards the south. In a blink of an eye it had disappeared. (July 12, 1970)

Date: 7/16/1970
Location: BRAZIL, Papagayos (Canelinha)
Description: (Translated from French) Joao Battista Marcellino was riding his bicycle towards Papagayos on a particularly deserted road. He was surprised to see some kind of headlights coming down from the sky, with a deafening noise. He felt he was suddenly suspended in the air and made desperate efforts to get off his bicycle. This lasted a few minutes, he tried to scream, but no sound came out of his throat. Finally he felt the bike gently descend to the ground and started pedaling again but again he was lifted, but this time in complete silence. The episode otherwise resembled the first one. Finally he was able to leave and arrived at his brother’s house: they then discovered that a package of beef kidneys he was carrying on his luggage rack was missing…

Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, Tom Charles Huston, J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Helms, Adm. Noel Gaynor, and Lt. Gen. Donald W. Bennett), Nixon hears suggestions for expanded mail openings, resumption of illegal break-ins, electronic surveillance, and expanded counterintelligence. He approves the plan in July but will not sign it; neither will Haldeman or Ehrlichman. The plan was originally put together by Huston. Hoover torpedoes it when he announces that he will go along with it as soon as he gets written authorization from Nixon for all those break-ins and wiretaps.

Event 32447 (3CF9B6CF)

Date: 7/25/1970
Location: FRANCE, Jabreilles-les-Bordes
Description: (Translated from French) Etienne Géry, 16 years old, an apprentice baker, decided in the afternoon to go for a walk with the hope of discovering mushrooms. He took a familiar route, climbing a small slope. He passed the summit, the vegetation was very dense at this time, the ferns almost reaching the size of a man. Suddenly, between the ferns he distinguished something abnormal: a kind of dome of metallic appearance was there barely 15 m from him. At first intrigued, he stopped, then driven by curiosity he took two more cautious steps. With a stick he parted the curtain of ferns. In doing so, he was dazzled by a very bright yellow-orange light emanating from three kinds of rectangular tiles located just under the dome. In any case, the intensity of the light was such that it seemed to him that the top of the dome was separated from the lower part of the object. Etienne’s curiosity turned into intense fear. He felt paralyzed, unable to make a move, neither to advance nor to flee. The cupola suddenly began to rise slowly, followed by the shell and the whole of the machine emerged from the screen of ferns. The orange beam followed the ascent of the object and Etienne was no longer dazzled. He then distinguished 3 or 4 circular portholes in the middle of the lower part as if they were part of a row that would have gone around it. He estimated the length of the machine at 5 or 6 meters and the height at 2.50 m to 3 m and compared its mass to the importance of a Renault Estafette. On the dome he noticed 3 antennas: the one on the right measuring about 1.50 m, the one on the left inclined to the left 60 cm and the one in the middle standing vertically 45 cm. The antennas seemed rigid to him. They did not oscillate during the ascent. He did not perceive any silhouette behind the portholes. Suddenly the object began to rise, accompanied by a shrill whistle. On the underside four absolutely identical supports were as if they had come out of 4 holes. Each one ended with a flat or slightly convex sole, longer than wide. The four feet retracted into the lower part, the object tilted, took a normal attitude and moved away. During the elevation of the machine Etienne felt a feeling of heat. Once at an altitude of about 100 m the object took off at a lightning speed and disappeared in 2 or 3 seconds on the north-north-west horizon.

Event 32467 (8043D759)

Date: 8/5/1970
Location: SPAIN, Cazalla de la Sierra
Description: (Translated from French) It was 10:45 pm when the dogs started barking violently. When they went outside, the people found themselves in front of a two-meter-long rectangle standing on the ground. It could have been likened to a door or a window. It was visible on a moonless night and was luminous with a matte white that suggested a “screen” to the witnesses. The dogs stayed about fifteen meters away from the thing, attacking it from time to time with their hair standing on end. One of the two men present approached up to 10 meters and addressed the apparition in these terms: “What do you want? Who are you? Come on! Let someone come out!” The other went to get his gun. When he came back, the thing was off, it no longer existed…

Event 32470 (B64AD8FF)

Date: 8/5/1970
Description: Around 4:30 a.m. between Plasencia and Bejar, Caceres, Spain a man was driving through a forest when he sighted a brightly lit, yard-wide sphere in the sky that stopped, descended vertically into a clearing in the forest, and then darkened. At 10:45 p.m. a UFO in Cazalla de la Sierra, Seville, Spain caused the furious barking of two dogs. What appeared before the four witnesses was a two-dimensional illuminated 2 m by 1 m rectangle, hovering in the sky only ten meters away, perpendicular to the ground, which blocked the view of the vegetation behind it. It vanished when a gun was pointed in its direction.

Event 32475 (083A4891)

Date: 8/7/1970
End date: 8/12/1970
Location: Prescott, Arizona
Description: Evening. Contactee Paul Solem, who has managed to convince a number of Hopi Indian elders, among them Chief Dan Katchongva, that he is a true prophet heralding the coming of a True White Brother, publicly summons his space brother friends telepathically for 15 minutes in Prescott, Arizona, where UFOs have been reported over the previous few days. After Solem announces that “they’re here,” a “star” appears that had not been there before and Solem receives a message from space brother Paul 2, who tells him that the saucers are appearing because of a Hopi prophecy. Others see zigzagging lights in the sky over the next few nights, and Prescott Courier photographer Chuck Roberts takes a time-lapse photo of one.

Event 32479 (CACECB8D)

Date: 8/13/1970
Location: DENMARK, between Kabdrup and Fjelstrup
Description: (Translated from French) At 10:50 PM, Evald Hansen Maarup, a police officer, was returning to his home in Knud, in a police car. Between Kabdrup and Fjelstrup, as he was driving down a slight dip, the witness recounts: I was driving alone in the patrol car. Suddenly the car was plunged into a light of whitish-blue and at the same time the engine stopped. All the lights of the car went out, even the ignition light. I pulled over to the side and stopped. The dazzling external light, like neon, was so blinding that I couldn’t see anything. To protect myself from the light I covered my eyes with my arm and managed to find the radio by feeling around. When I had my hand on the microphone and tried to call the station, I noticed that the radio was just as dead as the rest of the electrical equipment on board. The temperature inside the car rose and became pleasantly warm. It was like driving in the sun in summer. After a while the light rose. It was a light in the shape of a cone, with a base of 4 to 5 m in diameter. As I looked up, leaning forward, I could see that the upper end of the luminous cone was at the base of a large gray thing. No sound came from this object. After a few seconds the light was drawn inside. It is difficult to explain how. The light did not go out but its inner surface rose in such a way that the space under the luminous cone was plunged into darkness. The light was pulled up in about five minutes. I got out of the car and saw how the last part of the cone of light disappeared inside the lower part of the thing, through a hole whose diameter was around a meter. When the light had disappeared inside the object it began to move. It disappeared in a few seconds, rising vertically into the air. It accelerated strongly, still without the slightest sound. As the object moved away all the lights of the car’s electrical system came back on.

Event 32488 (C2376AD2)

Date: 8/15/1970
Description: The witness, who was staying at his parents home that night, felt a strange compulsion to go out and drive to nearby Lake Michigan in order to watch the sky. He had arrived at the shore near Good Hart, Michigan at around 10:30 p.m. when a very bright light caught his eye. It seemed to have a descending trajectory, and he discounted any mundane explanation for what he saw. Watching through a telescope, he realized that the craft had orange, yellow, green and blue indigo lights. He could now see a large disc-shaped outline that glided lower towards his position. He saw a very brightly lit, large cartouche-shaped window. Inside he caught a glimpse of some figures who seemed to be peering over a console or instrument panel. The craft descended silently behind a rise about 100 yards from the witness. It hovered for a moment, then settled down on the beach.

For 15-20 minutes he saw no movement around the object, and so, curious, he walked towards it. The air around the UFO felt warm. He stopped about 50 feet from the huge object and heard a metallic sound. By the faint light available he saw a ramp come snaking out of the side of the ship toward him. The ramp sloped up to the blank hull. There was no opening visible, just a long ramp like a tongue sticking out from the side and burying itself in the sand just ahead of the witness. Without giving it much thought he walked up the ramp, and as he approached the hull seemed to dissolve ahead of him. He walked through an opening that appeared in his path. The interior of the ship resembled terra-cotta stone, and there was a soft illumination that emanated from the walls. It was comfortably cool inside and the air smelled of sage and cinnamon. He was in a corridor that stretched ahead of him in both directions until it disappeared beyond inside walls. Various small openings with little handles and knobs were situated at what appeared to be random locations along the corridor. He walked to his left down the corridor, the aroma of sage and cinnamon pervasive and persisting. He soon found a door and realized that the passage behind him was closing itself off into a door as well.

He walked into what appeared to be a central core of the object. Moments later he came upon an improbably placed viewing plate in which he could see the south end of Lake Michigan and lights from the nearby Big Rock Nuclear Power Plant. As he spoke to himself, his voice echoed strangely through the confines of the ship. He noticed to his right a view plate. He caught a glance through the darkened glass of several creatures that seemed to be at the controls. He looked inside the control room and saw five figures all with their backs to him. The figures were humanoid in form with large heads. They seemed to be occupied with a series of procedures. The five were all dressed in a similar style. The outfits were form-fitted, and tended to give off a bluish glow. The middle figure turned slowly to face him. The eyes of the humanoid were much larger than a human’s and spread farther around the sides of the head. No nose was visible, with flat cheekbones, lending a somewhat rotund appearance to the face .

At one point the witness saw himself in his own mind, apparently the way the creatures perceived him. The beings communicated via telepathy and he was escorted into another room where he was sat in a chair with knobs and controls in front of it. There he saw 3-D images flash through his mind at very high speed. At one point the aliens brought him a small cube-shaped container that contained a dark blue liquid, which he was told to drink. The aliens spoke among each other in a strange singsong language. He was told that, among other things, that the speed of light was “imaginary.” He received the impression that the craft was impossibly larger inside than what it looked like from the outside. The aliens told him that their main interest in coming to earth was water. He was eventually deposited back at the same spot on the beach where he was initially picked up.

Event 32489 (C1B195F2)

Date: 8/16/1970
Location: SPAIN, Puenta de Herrera (Valladolid)
Description: (Translated from French) The television film had just finished when an intense whistling sound was heard, the image blurred. It was impossible to restore it. As it was late, the witness turned off the receiver and went to the garden door to find the cause of the whistling. Astonished, she saw in the middle of the garage driveway a thing equipped with many lights, near which a man was standing looking at the lucerne field. She was so scared that she went back and locked herself in. After a moment she heard the same whistling again. Soon after, looking out the window, the thing had disappeared. The craft was about the size of a car: 4 m wide, 2.50 m high, of which 60 cm for the supports. An ellipsoid silver with a transparent hemispherical dome, at the top a white-bluish light that turned slowly. On the circumference of the object a gallery of small lights of various colors: white, violet, yellowish. The man was about 1.80 m tall, was dressed in a tight dark garment, his head tightly in a bonnet of the same color. Around the wrists, ankles and waist, he wore shiny bracelets. He looked at the field and suddenly walked quickly towards the UFO. At the place where the craft landed the ground shone: up close there were dark marks, like boot prints. These traces persisted for several days: during the day they were black, at night they shone slightly.

Date: 8/16/1970
Description: Thirty minutes later, a 22-year-old woman in Puente De Herrera, Valladolid province, Spain heard a loud whistling sound accompanied by TV interference at one o’clock in the morning. Opening the door to her house she saw a silvery Saturn-shaped object standing on legs. On top was a transparent cupola bearing a bluish-white rotating light; and around its perimeter were other multi-colored lights. A few feet away stood a tall man dressed in a dark blue or black tight-fitting uniform. It had a close fitting hood of the same color with shining white wrist bands, anklets, and a buckle. The man was examining a nearby field of alfalfa. He then turned and took long strides toward the UFO, which was approximately 30 meters from the witness. She closed her door, frightened about being discovered, but heard the intense whistling sound again as the object took off. Footprints were found in the area, and for several nights the site where the UFO had landed glowed at night.

Date: 8/19/1970
Description: A ten year old student in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, Malaysia reported seeing about 25 landed small objects among the bushes just outside school grounds. From each of the objects emerged a three inch tall humanoid. As he approached the UFOs the school bell rang and he returned to class and did not see the objects depart. After school six school boys in the same village reported seeing a very small disc-shaped object, blue in color, land in some bushes near their school. Five little men described as merely three inches tall emerged from the object. One was dressed in a yellow suit and the other four wore blue uniforms. They were seen installing some type of aerial on a tree branch that apparently sent out signals. The boys became frightened and ran away.

Event 32500 (3720339F)

Date: 8/19/1970
Description: On this same night Mr. And Mrs. Olaf Mohlinder were riding in a car near Narken, Sweden in a rainstorm with their friend, Assar Sandberg, who was driving. They saw in the headlights a little man on the roadway, no more than three feet tall, who raised both arms to cover his face as the car approached. There was a blinding flash and a sound like a gunshot. Sandberg slammed on the brakes. The little man was still there. They drove on by and had a brief glimpse of his apparel: he wore a grayish rain cape and a helmet like a western hat.

Event 32502 (99104C30)

Date: 8/20/1970
Description: At 6:30 a.m. several young boys in Bukit Mertajam, Penang province, Malaysia encountered a round blue object on the ground, and several three inch tall ugly humanoids stood around the object. One of the humanoids took out an object resembling a gun and shot one of the boys on his hand when the boy attempted to grab him. The boys ran to get their teachers but upon returning to the site the object and the creatures were gone. Later that same day the same young witness from the previous day encountered a small UFO on the ground near the school compound. Five three-inch tall humanoids emerged from the object. One of them, who appeared to be the leader, wore a yellow uniform and had two horn-like protrusions on his head. The other four wore blue uniforms. The leader pointed a weapon at the witness and shot at him. The witness blacked out and was found later lying in the bushes. He regained consciousness later, and a small red dot appeared on his leg where he had been shot by the creature. Two other boys in the same village went out looking for the reported small UFO and spotted two tiny men among some bushes. One was on a rock and the other on a tree branch. Both figures were dressed in yellow suits, and one had only one arm and appeared to be holding a small gun. The boys attempted to capture the entities but they got away. That evening the young son of a local high-ranking police official was returning from school when he saw two tiny figures hiding in the bushes near the school compound. As he tried to capture them he was shot in the hand and received a small cut.

Event 32513 (3DA0CEC7)

Date: 8/30/1970
Location: Brazil, Itatiala
Description: (Translated from French) This Sunday, Altamiro Martin de Freitas of the dam security was making his rounds in the rain. Around 9:30 PM he saw something floating in the air emitting multicolored lights. As he approached the object he noticed that all the lights belonged to a silent and motionless structure, shaped like an elongated shell or bus, floating one meter above the ground. There were 15 rectangular portholes, about one meter long and 80 cm wide, with rounded corners. The object must have measured 20 m long and 3 m high. He started to crawl and drew his 9.4 mm Taurus 38. He fired once at 12 m from the object, which started to blink faster. Aiming carefully, he fired a second time. The blinking rhythm became so fast that he could no longer distinguish the extinguishing. A higher-pitched sound than that of a jet engine was heard. He was about to fire a third time when the object emitted a light in the form of a very intense white-blue ray that blinded and completely paralyzed the witness. Taken to the Guanabara hospital, he gradually recovered his mobility, but he remained blind for more than ten days, although ophthalmologists could not detect any serious injury. The investigation revealed that at the place where Altamiro had seen the object, the ground was dry in the middle of a bog resulting from continuous rain. Moreover, a woman from the state of Minas Gerais experienced a similar adventure.

He described it as about a quarter of a mile away, looking like “a garbage can lid with a piece of watermelon on top” (more like a squared-off “coning tower”) and about 30 feet in diameter. The man believes that others should have seen it, too, because it was so low. He, his wife, and daughter observed it for a minute and a half before it left in a swooping dive to the north-northeast.

Event 32534 (0F2C26C2)

Date: 9/7/1970
Description: After an argument with her mother in Sao Joa da Boa Vista, Sao Paulo, Brazil 17-year-old Valeria was upset and drove away from her house with her brother. They parked the car in an isolated area at 7:30 p.m. to smoke cigarettes and relax. They soon heard a loud buzzing sound similar to those emitted by crickets. The sound rose in intensity until it became unbearable. At that moment Valeria’s mind seemed to go blank and she did not come to until 10:15 p.m. After the incident Valeria suffered from strange dreams of lights.

During a hypnotic regression session she remembered being in the car and hearing the loud humming sound. Moments later she found herself inside a room illuminated by an orange light. The room was very cold and she felt a tingling sensation on her hands. She was lying on top of a “bed” and she could not move her head. At first she could only see what appeared to be luminous spheres floating around her. Suddenly she felt someone holding down her hands. A figure then stood in front of her. She described the figure as short, with a large hairless head and dark eyes. Soon a sort of cable with what appeared to be a needle on its tip was introduced into her nose. The needle emitted a greenish liquid. A small implant was also apparently inserted between her eyes. Moments later a small cut was made on one of her big toes, but she did not bleed or felt any pain. A voice in her head told her that she was being implanted in order to facilitate future contacts. Soon one of the short humanoids approached her and took her on an “astral” journey. Both traveled through the solar system, around Saturn and the Sun and even inside the earth’s interior. Soon awoke back in the car.

Description: (Translated from French) In the night, a RAF Lightning fighter jet, piloted by Captain William Schaffner, takes off from the British base in Binbrook to intercept conical UFOs detected by radar. Captain Schaffner communicates to the base that he has just discovered among these conical objects a kind of large glass football. At the moment of interception, the radar operators see on their screen the UFOs and the plane become one, then separate. A few moments later, the Lightning crashes into the North Sea. (September 8)

Date: 9/25/1970
Description: In Jessup, Pennsylvania a 16-year-old boy was returning home from a high school football game at ten o’clock at night when, three blocks from his home, he sighted a disc-shaped UFO. It was silver-aluminum in color and approximately 1,000 feet in length. It had a turret on top surrounded by a row of windows. The underside had three large spheres, with a central flat disk. It was glowing white. The sky was clear and the object moved silently across the night sky in an easterly direction. While deciding whether to report this incident or not, the witness was peering out his kitchen window and sighted a large black limousine. He could see it quite clearly because there was a street lamp directly across the street from his house. Four occupants were in the vehicle. Two were seated in the front, and two in the back. Each had on dark suits and hats similar to those worn in the 1940’s. They sat in their vehicle, motionless. They returned for the next several evenings. There was no verbal or physical contact with the strangers.

Event 32571 (5D9DB45A)

Date: 10/5/1970
Location: Canada, Quebec
Description: (Translated from French) Lellier Case. Ms. Gabriel Lellier (59 years old) from Latourelle Street was the victim on October 5, 1970, of numerous physical discomforts, caused by a very bright object and a kind of vapor that she had seen from her apartment around 4:30 in the morning. She had gotten up because she could no longer sleep, as often happens to her. She headed to her living room to sit down; suddenly she saw bright orange beams entering her living room through the window that faced the house across the street and Laruelle Street. She rushed to the window and, looking up to the sky, she saw a very bright orange disc. She then realized that her gaze was fixed on the object, that she could not move, her body was completely paralyzed. After 30 seconds the object descended to almost the top of the house across the street. It had tripled in size. It was now surrounded by a very bright white halo that lit up the entire sky. In the center of the red ball, Ms. Lellier could make out a black object spinning quickly, giving her the impression that it was a camera. Thirty seconds later she saw the object rise up at a dizzying speed. Its ascent was accompanied by a long luminous trail. Ms. Lellier could now move and she headed to the door that opened onto the gallery, opened it, put her foot outside and suddenly saw a series of two or three small white clouds, floating in a kind of thick fog that was only in the back yard. Without wanting to, she entered the first cloud and immediately felt her throat seized. A horrible gas smell had taken her and in one go she felt suffocated. Feeling faint, she ran back into the house and collapsed onto her bed, losing consciousness. An hour and five minutes later she woke up and her eyes hurt terribly. Looking in the mirror she saw that her hair had turned yellow and she had the deep feeling of giving off electricity. (…) Health problems for weeks…

She described the object as a very luminous orange circle surrounded by a sparkling white halo. Inside the circle she saw a small black object pivoting upon itself. During this time she realized that she was paralyzed and couldn’t move. After a minute the object ascended rapidly into the sky, leaving a long trail behind it. She wanted to get some air and stepped out onto her balcony. She confronted a very heavy mist and a strong odor, which had a choking effect upon her. She went back inside, fainted, came to 10-15 minutes later with her eyes burning, her head feeling hot and heavy, and quite stunned. She felt electrical jolts in her body, and her hair had turned yellow in color. Her diabetes also manifested itself in an alarming fashion. UFO report involving physiological effects occurred in Quebec City, Quebec. At 9:00 p.m. that night in Saint-Romuald, Quebec two witnesses saw a elongated, luminous flying object. Their car radio had heavy static during the sighting.

It approached to within 50 feet of the ground, and then took off at a 70 degree angle at high speed, leaving behind a glowing trail.

Event 32581 (16EF240C)

Date: 10/7/1970
Description: (Translated from French) Charged with recovering the wreckage of the Lightning crashed on September 8th, the HMS Kiddleston of the Royal Navy is conducting searches, but it is impossible to find the body of Captain Schaffner. The wreckage is stored at the Binbrook base and not shipped to Farnborough where the expertise is usually done. Dispatched on site, the official investigators are surprised to have only limited access to the wreckage and to be watched by 5 civilians, including 2 Americans. They note that the cockpit and ejection seat are intact, but that in violation of regulations, most of the on-board instruments have been removed. A few hours later, they are asked to end their investigation. Summoned by their superiors upon their return to Farnborough, they are ordered to remain silent on the matter in the name of national security. As for the fighter wreckage, it is shipped to Wright-Patterson (Ohio). (October 7th)

Date: 10/25/1970
Location: BRESIL, Alegrete
Description: (Translated from French) At 4:00 PM, Pedro Machado and his son Euripide were grooming a cow separated from the herd with its calf. The cow was tied up not far from the paddock and the one-month-old calf was free at 5 m from its mother. The herd began to stir and moo, as well as the separated cow, which was looking at its calf with insistence. The calf also began to bellow. Astonished, the farmers saw the calf being carried in the air at 1 m from the ground, horizontally, towards the meadow, until a point at 20 m from its starting point, while they themselves felt paralyzed, unable to make a move. Suddenly, the calf, which was now silent, made a vertical ascent that lasted from 3 to 4 minutes, and suddenly disappeared from their sight in a cloud. (October 25-27, 1970)

Description: 5:40 p.m. Reidar Salvesen is driving about 2 miles east of Helleland, Rogaland, Norway, when a dazzling light forces him to stop the car. He looks up and sees a globe about 60 feet in diameter approaching noiselessly. It stops about 18 feet in front of the car and hovers for 50 seconds about 30 feet up. Suddenly the object shoots straight up into the air, causing Salvesen to fall on the pavement. He hears a sharp crack caused by his front windshield shattering. About 3,200 feet in the air the globe changes to a fireball, which quickly disappears. After sweeping up the shards of windowpane glass, he drives on, but feels a numbness in his tongue a few minutes later. He also has an abrasion on his hand from falling down, but the skin sloughs off as if burned, and he has a redness around his eyes when he returns home. His travel clock starts keeping time badly.

When he comes alongside the truck, the object moves to the left side of his car about 30 feet away and almost on the ground. Wilkinson slows down and comes to a stop, and the object follows suit, hovering for another 10–15 seconds before disappearing into the lights of Moose Jaw to the west. It has followed his car for 12 minutes and 10 miles.

Description: 9:00 p.m. Albert Formiller is fishing for bass in Cholla Bay, Sonora, Mexico, when he sees a light in the sky coming from a saucer-shaped object, which stops and hovers about 200–300 feet above the surface. A light from a tube on the bottom illuminates a broad stretch of water about one half-mile wide. It changes from a broad floodlight to a sharp spot on the surface, apparently as it is raised or lowered. After a few minutes, a cloud forms around the object. After 5 minutes, the searchlight is turned off and a similar light appears on top of the UFO, illuminating the upper part of the cloud. The object then moves west and is visible for 20 minutes in all.

Date: 11/24/1970
Description: At seven o’clock in the evening a compact “cloud” UFO emitting rays from the top was seen by hundreds in Belo Horizonte, Brazil during a time when part of the city experienced a power outage. At the same time Moyses Santos, a resident of the city, found himself surrounded by half a dozen three-foot tall beings in his room “who went around touching and upsetting everything.” They floated about in the air, and had a translucent quality. They “looked like ice.” When they got near a table lamp, they “lit up in many lights.” One of them handed Santos a piece of paper on which he drew a flying saucer, without knowing why. The being then took the paper back. Finally they disappeared by passing through the walls. He went outside in time to see the UFO above the city, flooding the area with brilliant light. Other sightings occurred about the same time in several Brazilian cities.

Seconds later, a solitary object appears to the north and approaches swiftly. The student parks his bicycle and runs up some steps to a raised enclosure for a better view. The single UFO changes course and circles several times, descending slowly. It then hovers, climbs, and disappears. The student gets back on his bike and sees a bright flash of white light to the southeast, which startles him and he pedals home quickly. The student returns the next day to the enclosure, which is actually a raised tombstone. He finds four circular patches of flattened grass.

Event 32642 (BB78885E)

Date: 12/4/1970
Description: In the middle of the afternoon a lens-shaped cloud quickly encircled a private plane flying from the islands of Bimini to Andros in the Bahamas. Inside the cloud was a glowing circular tunnel that extended vertically upward. Both of the passengers experienced a sensation of weightlessness during the experience. A green mist surrounded the plane when it finally broke free, and the plane had been moved much closer to Palm Beach, Florida.

Description: After finding huge mysterious footprints on their property in Vader, Washington three days before, a family watched a very bright object approach their house at 7:15 a.m. It seemed to have a central dome with a revolving ring around it and was deep orange in the center. The craft tilted slightly to one side, hovered briefly over some nearby power lines, then brightened while making a low sweep over the area. Two of the witnesses saw what appeared to be a gray colored “shape” drop from the object and scurry away into the woods before the UFO departed. Later that week a mysterious dark “prowler” was seen peering through windows.

Event 32670 (23247618)

Date: 12/24/1970
Description: Two independent sets of photographs showing luminous balls of light in motion were taken on this night in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Three teenagers–Larsh, Neal, and Sellars–took a photograph of two lights in parallel motion at 10:00 p.m. They had had sightings of similar phenomena earlier in the week and were prepared to take a time exposure on this night. They made their photograph using a Pentax camera on a tripod. The two lights were also seen by another resident, Hjalmar Bowlby, earlier that same evening. Remarkably, they weren’t the only ones who were able to catch an image of a UFO using a camera that night. At 10:35 p.m. Jerry Mozer, also of Alamogordo, New Mexico took a photo of a luminous point in motion, making an abrupt change of course resulting in a “buttonhook” effect on the image. Both photographs are reproduced below.

Event 32674 (7F2DB77E)

Date: 1971
Location: AUSTRALIA, Broome, Western Australia
Description: (Translated from French) Three people in a car saw, at night, a “man” bathed in light. He had an outstretched hand and bounced a luminous ball from the ground into his hand. Then the three witnesses were surrounded by thousands of small lights that moved in rows. They left the area without waiting for the end of the observation.

Date: 1971
Location: USA, Laguna Beach, California
Description: (Translated from French) Fred Bell, who worked for NASA under Werner von Braun, who is a scientist, inventor, artist and mystic practicing alternative medicine, made a trip to India and the Himalayas. In 1971 he received his first sign from the extraterrestrial Semjase (note from vog: the one Billy Meier allegedly meets 4 years later…). The telepathic image takes shape under his pencil: he draws it very beautifully with long blond hair. In 1980 she will tell him that she comes from the planet Erra (note from vog: Billy Meier brings other entities from this planet…) whose configuration resembles the green valleys of the Swiss Alps. Semjase will be his inspiration for music and other inventions (note from vog: which he hastens to commercialize, of course) (…)

Event 32685 (3032F24B)

Date: 1/1971
Description: Author Preston Nichols claims he begins working for AIL-Eaton, a defense contractor on Long Island. He claims he begins working on a series of exotic
projects at Camp Hero in Montauk, NY, which allegedly did some experiments at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Note: Brookhaven is linked to claims of a UAP crash on 24 November 1992 with little corroborating information. A MUFON report at the time suggested a video showed a large fire of an unknown object, large parts being driven away on flatbeds, special access by Brookhaven personnel, county police turned away by men in black jumpsuits and multiple eyewitness testimony of lights flying erratically over the crash site.

Event 32686 (88641330)

Date: 1/1971
Description: Alleged AIL-Eaton contractor Preston Nichols claims experiments in consciousness manifestation began at Camp Hero, culminating with the “Montauk Chair,” which could change thought into reality. Nichols claims Project Phoenix III worked on time travel aspects of consciousness manifestation, and teleportation to other locations began in 1982. Nichols claims Project Rainbow began in 1983 and accidentally manifested an entity that destroyed some of the base and its personnel, thereby ending psychic operations at Camp Hero.

Note: Nichols made these allegations in a book in 1992 with no independent sourcing. Over the next decade, Duncan Cameron, Steward Swerdlow and Al Bielek claimed to have been participants in Montauk activities too, though none provided any proof. Somewhat dubiously, all claim to have “remembered” what happened at the facility after they began communicating.

Later, Bielek began to claim he and Cameron served in the Philadelphia Experiment (see April 1956) and that he time traveled to the 1980s to work on the Montauk programs. Bielek changed his story several times and there is no proof he was ever in the US Navy as he claims.

Uri Geller does “corroborate” the existence of a Project Phoenix at the facility.

Note: Lawyer Andrew Basiago claims he was experimented on in a DARPA Project Pegasus that utilized the “Montauk chair” to view different scenes in time. He has provided no evidence of these claims.

Description: 6:15 a.m. Maun and Matta Talana are drinking coffee when they see a brilliant light approaching from the lake outside their home at Saapunki, Kuusano, Finland. It is about 33 feet in diameter and moving against the wind. Their electricity goes off briefly. Looking out the window, the Talalas see their whole yard bathed in light caused by a huge fireball about 60 feet away, which rises up and disappears after a few seconds. Around 8:30 a.m., their son Timo asks them what the marks are in the snow outside. He has noticed a spot of hard green ice that is not covered with snow. Mauno takes some green ice and melts it into dark green water. The melted area is about 20 feet long by 10 feet wide, in the middle of which are ice needles as big as fingers with a ball of ice on top and some soot. The following day, he tells the newspaper, which sends a photographer to the site. UFO researchers from Oulu arrive on January 6 and take samples from the melted area and measure radiation.

Description: (Translated from French) Richard Williams said he observed an object 25 to 30 feet in shape of a diamond, equipped with white lights and two exhaust nozzles. The object initially looked like a bat, with wings wider than those of an airplane. In the middle of each wing it seemed there was a missile or a nozzle. The object had red and white lights on the wings and tail. (note of vog: did it perhaps look like a Convair Delta trainer?.. or another plane of the same kind?) The object hovered first at about 100 feet from the ground before catapulting upwards. He thought he could make out a creature inside the object. In the back of the cockpit there was a blinking light. The sheriff’s office of Huron County received 18 reports concerning this object

The women were very scared and did not stop to investigate if it had left tracks, but drove straight to Oulu.

Date: 2/5/1971
Location: Kangaskyla Kinnula, Finland
Description: 3:00 p.m. Two young men, P. Aliranta and E J Sneck, were working in the woods when Aliranta noticed a 15 foot metallic object, shaped like two saucers put together, and with four thin legs, descending in a clearing 50 feet away. As it landed, a little entity just under 3-foot tall glided to the ground from an opening in the underside; dressed in green one-piece “diver’s suit,” it wore a helmet with a circular faceplate.

Event 32741 (DFA3CA14)

Date: 2/5/1971
Locations: Kangaskylä; Kinnula; Finland
Description: 3:00 p.m. Petter Aliranta and Esko Juhani Sneck are working in the woods around Kangaskylä, near Kinnula, Finland, when they see a 15-foot object descend to a clearing 50 feet away. As it lands, a small entity just under 3 feet tall glides to the ground from an opening on the underside. Through 3 windows on the UFO, three more entities can be seen. The entity approaches Aliranta, who turns on his chain saw. Suddenly, the being turns around and heads back to the UFO. As the humanoid is rising back up into the air, Aliranta grabs it by the heel of its boot with his bare hand. It burns him like a hot iron, and he has to let go. The burns are clearly visible 2 months later. The humanoid gets back inside, and the UFO takes off with a hum. Before the two men go back, they look at markings in the snow. At the end of each landing foot there had ben a round plate. These plates have penetrated the full depth of the snow (1.3 feet), leaving four round prints forming an even square 6.5 feet on each side. Circular footprints left by the entity are clearly visible, about 6 inches wide. Possible hoax.

Event 32742 (3338FAFE)

Date: 2/5/1971
Description: On this afternoon two young men, P. Aliranta and E. J. Sneck, were working in the woods in Kangaskyla, Kinnula, Finland when Mr. Aliranta noticed a 15 foot wide metallic saucer-shaped object descend and land on four thin legs in a clearing 50 feet away. After it landed a short entity just under 3 feet tall glided to the ground from an opening in the underside. It was dressed in a green one-piece “diver’s suit” and wore a helmet with a circular faceplate. It approached the young men, walking on top of the deep snow, and Aliranta moved toward it with his power chain saw in hand. Through three windows in the upper part of the object three more entities could be seen. The humanoid retreated from Aliranta and was levitating into the object from underneath when the young man grabbed it by the heel of its boot with his bare hand. He found that touching it burned like a hot iron and he had to let go at once. As soon as the being was back inside the object it ascended with a slight buzzing or humming sound. Both men felt stiff all over and had difficulty moving. Four landing leg marks and small footprints were left behind in the snow.

Description: Matt Dickson of Lawton, Oklahoma heard something out the front of his house early this evening. He looked out and in the dark caught a glimpse of a vaguely human-like figure kneeling on the front lawn near a nearby empty fishpond. Curious, Dickson decided to find out who the stranger was. He stepped out on his front porch for a better look and was terrified to see a wolf-like man attempting to scoop up puddles of water from the bottom of the fish pond, crouched on its hands and knees. The sight was so shocking that Dickson suffered a heart attack and had to be rushed to Comanche County Memorial Hospital. In a report to the police Dickson described the creature as tall, with a lot of hair all over its face and body. It was dressed in an indescribable manner. Others saw the same or similar creature that same night.

Description: (Translated from French) Indeed, it took a year before a second satellite was placed in orbit, but it is true that in the meantime Chinese specialists had recorded a third failure. The “China 2” was launched in the greatest discretion in March 1971, since it was the American surveillance services who announced the news. The Chinese confirmation arrived only two weeks later.

Event 32768 (5143FCB8)

Date: 3/1971
Location: CHINA, near Paiyunopo (Mongolian border)
Description: (Translated from French) Sun Trha Wong and five other soldiers on a routine patrol to check the state of the wells on the track to Erhlieh saw a huge luminous ball the size of a two-storey Western house, resting in a kind of rock-strewn circus from which one of the springs emerged. They hid to observe the phenomenon. After about ten minutes the luminosity of the sphere began to decrease slowly: they could not determine whether the ball was made of metal or plastic, it had no openings. Yet soon they saw three beings bustling around it with strange devices in their hands. They seemed to be looking for something and frequently looked in all directions. They were much taller than average and wore some kind of helmets. After a while they re-entered the sphere just as mysteriously and it took off and went north.

Event 32777 (E281FE3E)

Date: 3/5/1971
Location: FRANCE, between Trénal and Condamine (Jura)
Description: (Translated from French) M. Camus de Gevingey had a second store in Savigny: he made frequent trips between the two. That night he was returning around 01:10 and had just passed the small village of Trénal. A bright light in the distance caught his attention: it was not on the road, but more to the right. He continued to drive and quickly approached the place where this light source was located. He then saw that the lights were regularly arranged on the ground, on a line parallel to the woods. They were blue-tinted rectangles like fluorescent lights: he counted eight, the large side parallel to the ground. Then he almost simultaneously saw a kind of dull metal dome, about 8 m high and 15 m wide. Continuing to drive, a surprise awaited him: three beings were there, seeming to be waiting for him. He will qualify them as animals, so strange was their appearance. They were on all fours, climbing the embankment. Fear seized him. Especially when he saw about twenty of these beings in the meadow: some standing, others on all fours as if they were looking for something. The three near the tree were brownish, almost black, as if tanned. Their head had the aspect of an ant’s, a rounded lobe framed by two other lobes swelling like cheeks. The car passed very quickly in front of them, they did not make any movement. Hardly had he passed them when a light filled his car: looking in the rearview mirror he had the impression that he was being shot at point-blank range. From that moment his fear disappeared. He had time to notice that the beings in the meadow were smaller and that they had their arms on the ground. Another feeling overwhelmed him: since he was hit by the beam, he was no longer aware of what he was doing. He had the impression that his car was driving alone, and it slowed down from 100 km/h to 20 km/h although it remained in 4th gear. He did notice that it was slowing down, but it did not affect him. A few moments later he noticed that the car’s hood had become fluorescent, but this anomaly quickly disappeared. The car was only driving at 20 km/h and incredibly, it regained its regime on its own, without his conscious intervention. He did not stop, continued his journey at 50/60 km/h until Condamine completely disoriented. He only regained his senses in this village and continued to his home in Savigny. When undressing he was surprised to see traces of rectangles from 4 to 6 cm on 2 to 3 cm on the shirt, up to the belt. They were distributed on the left side; there were 7 or 8 of them. They were golden yellow, phosphorescent. Very fleeting they only lasted 5 to 6 minutes after he had taken it off. Three days later, brown rectangles appeared in the same places. It took three or four machine washes before they disappeared. The paint of the car was altered to the point that when washing it left green traces on the cloth. Pleasant consequence: for years M. Camus had suffered from headaches due to a liver disease: 6 months after this encounter he still has not felt any pain either in the liver or in the head.

Event 32779 (11E66103)

Date: 3/5/1971
Description: Gilbert Camus, a radio technician, was driving to his shop in Savigny, Jura department, France at 1:10 a.m. He was between Trenal and Condamine when he noticed lights ahead on the right side of the road. As he approached, he saw that these were on a line of eight bluish luminescent rectangles on the ground in a marshy meadow beside the road. Above them he could distinguish, in the moonlight, a flattened hemispherical dome, apparently of dark metal, about 25 feet high and 50 feet wide.

When he got closer to the object he saw three “animals” on all fours climbing up the road bank. Their heads were level with his windshield so they “must have been of great stature.” Their heads were shaped like an ant’s with “a rounded lobe flanked by two other lobes swelling out like cheeks.” He saw no faces. In the meadow he could see about 20 more of these beings, some upright and others on all fours. His car had just passed them when it filled with a bluish white light from behind, as if a “ray” had been projected at him. He lost control of the car, which spontaneously slowed down to about 12 mph, then recovered its initial speed when he reached the outskirts of Condamine. Later, when he took off his clothes he found on his shirt, below the belt line, several golden yellow rectangles about 1" by 2". These disappeared after a few minutes. Three days later similar chocolate brown rectangular marks appeared on his undershirt, and these persisted through 3 or 4 washings.

The paint began to come off his car when he washed it. Most surprisingly, he found himself cured of a liver ailment, which until then had been giving him excruciating headaches. A semi-elliptical imprint was found in the meadow the next day about an inch deep, with a long axis of about 36 feet. Inside the circle dandelions, abundant elsewhere in the meadow were absent, and where it crossed a drainage ditch the ice in the ditch had melted, and the water still seemed warm. At the edge of the woods beside the ground marks a large tree branch was freshly broken off. In the snow were footprints like those of “shoes without heels”, some as big as 16" long.

Event 32782 (3D1A62A5)

Date: 3/14/1971
Description: Two young men, Brian Scott and Nick Corbin, were in the Superstition Mountains, near Apache Junction, Arizona to gather snakes. During that night, at 9:06 p.m., they saw a light coming towards them over the mountains. As it approached they had a missing time memory loss, and their next recollection was that they were hastily leaving the campsite two hours later.

During a hypnosis session five years later Scott described how the object approached and hovered over them. It was emitting a purplish light from underneath, and he felt a “pulsating, pulling feeling” as the two men were lifted up into the craft. They were separated once they were inside, and Scott was led by a 7 foot tall entity down a corridor to a door which “shattered” when they entered through it. On the other side was a small room filled with mist, where he encountered 4 or 5 similar beings, 7 foot tall and with grayish skin similar to that of a crocodile, and with 3 fingered hands. The room was cold and the mist emanated from vents in the floor.

Scott was stripped and placed against a very brightly lit wall panel. A machine directly in front of him appeared to “scan” him, and a new 9-foot-tall entity communicated with him telepathically and asked why he was afraid. His mind was briefly transported to some other worldly environment, presumably the being’s home planet. The beings that examined him had huge ears, no hair, and slit-like mouths. Their feet were elephant like, with three broad toes. When the examination was completed, Scott was reunited with his friend and they were both returned to the ground with no conscious memory of what had taken place. However, they both felt an unspecified terror to such a degree that they immediately packed their gear and returned to town.

Description: At 12:30 a.m. six soldiers stationed at a radar base at Monte Pani, Cabo De Creus, Spain were alerted by another soldier to a fiery red, disc-shaped craft moving slowly over the area. The guard dogs began howling, and the men all watched as the UFO suddenly shot away at high speed. Moments later one of the soldiers screamed in pain from a sudden bright flash that seemed to come from the ocean nearby. Meanwhile one of the soldiers released one of the guard dogs, a wolfhound with a fierce disposition, that was going crazy inside his cage. The dog ran immediately towards some nearby buildings and was followed closely by two of the men. The dog slowed down and began to grow menacingly, and one of the men felt heavy static in the air and his tongue began to itch. Both men then heard a loud noise coming from some nearby bushes. They saw a huge bulky figure that seemed to move clumsily among the brush. The men yelled at the figure to stop but it changed directions and began moving away quickly. Seconds later the men heard another noise and felt something heavy moving towards them. They fired their weapons in the direction of the noise and everything became silent. A search of the area the next day proved fruitless.

Event 32802 (A47EAE4F)

Date: 4/2/1971
Description: In 1971, a middle-aged man in Greenhill, New South Wales, Australia was standing in his kitchen at around 10 p.m. when he noticed a small entity standing outside. The man, an Australian aborigine, next felt a sucking force that pulled him outside, smashing him through a glass window that had an iron bar across it with a clearance of less than a foot. His wife, hearing the pane of glass breaking, entered the kitchen in time to see her 5’ 2" husband disappearing horizontally through the lower pane, which was 4.5 feet from the floor. To jump through it would have been impossible, as it was only 32 inches wide and only 10 inches in height, and fronted upon the kitchen sink. The distance to the ground outside was seven feet. The man was terrified, yet he could not run from the strange being out of fear. Instead, he went towards it. He was discovered on the ground by a relative, cut and bruised, seven feet away from the smashed glass. This strange occurrence took place only hours after a number of people in nearby Kempsey had observed a strange bright light in the sky.

The field lights formed a king of “ceiling” over the field and is unlikely that had they looked up, the players could have seen anything. The object was “football shaped,” the interior light being “the brightest blue imaginable.” The top portion of the UFO was transparent and the bottom was a greenish metallic “like gun metal” color with three large transparent portholes. The object was tilted downward at an angle revealing three tall humanoid figures, over six feet tall, in the transparent upper half of the UFO. One of the occupants pointed down at the witness and then turned toward a rectangular, lighted area. Mrs F. asked the cabbie, a Greek immigrant, to stop the taxi, but he accelerated away and drove them straight to her home without stopping. He left in a frightened state without collecting his fare.

Event 32831 (8854F5D0)

Date: 5/1971
Locations: Holloman Air Force Base; Alamogordo, New Mexico
Description: 6:00 a.m. A 16-mm film is allegedly taken of retrieved UFOs at Holloman Air Force Base near Alamogordo, New Mexico. It supposedly shows “three disc-shaped craft,” one of which lands and the other two fly away. A door opens on the landed vehicle and three human-sized beings emerge with an odd, gray complexion and pronounced noses. They wear tight-fitting jump suits and thin headdresses that appear to be communication devices. In their hands they hold a “translator.” A Holloman base commander and other Air Force officials go out to meet them.

Date: 5/1971
Location: Stara Cerkev, Slovenia
Description: 7:30 p.m. Alojz Krz comes across a UFO sitting on three legs in a shallow hollow in a field near Stara Cerkev, Slovenia. He approaches within 65 feet of it, and it frightens him considerably. Around 8:00 p.m., 17-year-old Angela Rajhs is bicycling in the same area and watches the landed object for 4–5 minutes. As she is cycling away, the object takes off, turning in a wide spiral. Rajhs returns to the scene with her parents the next day and finds several pointed holes in the ground about 6–8 inches in diameter. The nearby grass seems burned.

Event 32848 (D41B0AA2)

Date: 5/14/1971
Location: Canada, near Gleichen (Ontario)
Description: (Translated from French) Wilton Eater and his wife Rosalin were driving home after visiting friends in town. As they were approaching a hill, they saw a very bright light burst out to their right, which disappeared after a few seconds. Suddenly Mrs. Eater felt the car lift off the road, and to her great surprise, it floated in the air without leaving the right side of the road. Meanwhile, her husband tried in vain to steer the vehicle, with the headlights still on. A quarter of a mile further, the two astonished witnesses heard the sound of tires touching the road. (Allan 1971) (A. SCHNEIDER-H. MALTHANER: “Le dossier secret des OVNI”, ed. De Vecchi, 1978, p 35, 36) At night, Mr. and Mrs. Raw Eater were driving at 70 km/h. Suddenly a flash of light hit their car. The car floated about 60 cm off the ground, the speedometer stayed stuck at 70 km/h and despite the bad condition of the road there were no more bumps. This continued for a distance of about 400 m. When the strange light went away, the car regained contact with the ground. (May 14, 1971)

Description: Fifteen-year-old Michael D. of Passapatanzy, West Virginia was on his way home with his dog after camping out the previous day with two other boys. He was crossing a grassy field at 10:00 p.m. when he saw a bright object slowly approach at a low altitude, passing over some high-tension wires that crossed the field. He crouched down in some tall grass as the object landed with a bounce, about 100 feet away. The silvery UFO was higher than it was wide and had a “walkway” that ran around its circumference. It had red and white revolving lights on top and made a humming noise. A door “came down” out of which emerged a “huge” figure who was hunched over and walked in a “stiff legged, bouncing” fashion. The humanoid being had long arms and wore shiny, light reflecting clothing. In one hand it held a glowing box. The humanoid giant appeared to be approaching the tall grassy area where Michael was hiding, so the teenage ordered his dog to attack the figure. The being then turned and re-boarded the craft, and within a couple of minutes it took off. His companions from the camping expedition came and found Michael a short time later still in the grass, moaning and very frightened. The next day seven holes where found in the ground at the site. They were 2.5 inches wide at the top and a foot deep into the soil. Two days later, Michael and several other family members saw a bright disc-shaped object, which had been pursuing his sisters as they drove in a car up the long driveway to their house.

Event 32856 (34A59DD5)

Date: 5/16/1971
Description: At 9:30 p.m. four witnesses of the Whitlock family in Anderson, Indiana observed an unidentified aerial object after the power failed in their house. It was a Saturn-shaped UFO, making a high frequency sound. The object was the size of a house. The body of the object was a silver ball illuminated by brilliant red, green, blue and white lights around its rim. It moved at tractor speed, and then hovered over the hog farmyard, setting off pandemonium of howling, squacking, and squealing by the dogs, chickens, pigs, and a parrot. The witnesses suffered vibration, numbness, and fear. They fled back into their house which had been rendered powerless. The entire incident lasted 20 minutes. A tree died at the site of the UFO’s closest approach.

The craft was disc shaped with a dome on top and an antenna like protrusion. It had a door like opening to the left of its center; the opening emitted an reddish orange glow from inside. It also emitted a faint humming sound. He stopped his car to watch, and after two minutes he saw a figure walk back and forth within the doorway of the object. The humanoid being was dressed in a grayish white metallic suit with a hood and stood about six feet tall. The craft itself was dull gray in color and appeared to have burnt areas along the bottom. The witness, sitting behind the wheel of his vehicle, turned his head to his left and saw a similarly garbed figure only three feet way from the driver’s door. He then heard a click and two seconds later a blast threw him against the vehicle’s console. A loud explosion moved the car forward and the witness drove away as fast as he could. He then drove to the emergency room of a local hospital where he was treated with what looked like pellet wounds.

Location: first-floor dental office of Walter Griehl on the Avenida Pedro Molina in Mendoza, Argentina
Description: 12:10 p.m. Retired artist Julio Suárez Marzal is in the first-floor dental office of Walter Griehl on the Avenida Pedro Molina in Mendoza, Argentina, when they see a flattened, Saturn-shaped object about a half-mile away to the south. Griehl goes to retrieve some binoculars and misses most of the sighting. It is an incandescent dark orange in color and moving from east to west. It begins floating down with a rocking movement and approaches to within 230 feet. Suárez Marzal sees that it is revolving because of a small circular mark on its rim. A dense cloud issues from the object and surrounds it, turning it pearly gray with a faintly bluish sheen. As it gets closer, the circular mark seems to extend like a bronze-colored cylinder and has a handle-like protuberance on top. At one point it moves away to the northeast and disappears for 4 seconds but reappears even closer, only 130 feet away. It remains stationary for 10 seconds, and the cylinder seems deliberately pointed toward the short-wave antenna on the nearby central post office. He estimates it is 18–20 feet in diameter. It continues rocking and changes shape from a globe to a hat to an oval. Then after being visible for 90 seconds it takes off suddenly to the south, leaving a trail of vapor.

Event 32885 (8D1FBB15)

Date: 5/30/1971
Location: FRANCE, Dannes
Description: (Translated from French) Mrs. Pierrette Debofle was cutting grass for rabbits in her garden at 2:05 PM. Looking up, she saw in the direction of the chalk quarry, whose summit was 178 meters high, a dark mass in the shape of a saucer with a dome, the size of a bulldozer, suspended close to the ground. She continued her work while keeping an eye on the unusual and motionless object. After a long time, a small being, with an abnormally large head, seemed to float rather than walk around the object. He moved around the object, bent down as if to pick something up, passed under the object where he disappeared inside as if sucked in. Immediately the craft took off without a sound (800m from the witness) like an arrow towards the hill and disappeared into the clouds.

Event 32888 (6CAC6154)

Date: 5/30/1971
Description: A woman was cutting grass for her rabbits in Dannes, Pas-de-Calais, France at 2:05 p.m. when she sighted a dark UFO in a large chalk quarry about half a mile away. The object was shaped like an overturned basin and was hovering near the ground. Beside it a small being with a large head was moving about, and it looked like he might have been collecting chalk samples. After approximately ten minutes he was “sucked up” into the object, which took off at once. No ground traces were found.
