Encounters with Aliens on this Day July 17

1948 – At 4:50 p.m. two Kirtland Air Force Base Sergeants on a fishing trip with their families to San Acacia Dam, New Mexico
saw a group of seven aluminum circular, possibly spherical, objects
approach from the south at 20,000 feet and pass overhead at 1,500 mph.
They shifted from a V formation to an L formation, and then to a
circular formation and finally to no regular formation, at which point
a regular pulsating flashing light appeared amidst the group at
30 from zenith to the north. At this oblique angle the objects no
longer appeared circular. They made no noise nor did they leave a
trail. (Sources: Project Blue Book files counted in official
statistics, case # 146; Donald E. Keyhoe, Flying Saucers: Top Secret, p. 90; Jacques Vallee, Anatomy of a Phenomenon, p. 53).

1952 – At ten minutes after midnight on State Route 33 in St.
Paul, Minnesota four two-foot diameter discs flew through a
lightning storm at only 200 feet altitude, making sharp turns. (Source:
Loren Gross, UFOs: A History. 1952: June-July 20th, p. 59).

1952 – At 11:00 a.m. an elliptical object was sighted from
Lockbourne AFB, Ohio with a pinpoint of flame at the rear that
would occasionally flare. The object had a resonant beat as it moved
through the sky at high speed. A Project Blue Book “unidentified” case.

1952 – At the same time as the Lockbourne AFB sighting, a pilot
for United Airlines flying over Lake Erie near Sandusky, Ohio
saw a saucer-shaped object pacing his airliner. (Source: Dominique
Weinstein, Aircraft UFO Encounters, p. 17).

1952 – At 2 o’clock in the afternoon two red glowing spheres
followed a plane across the sky in Balliettsville, Pennsylvania.
(Source: Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 2360).

1952 – At 3:10 p.m. a woman saw two large flying discs over
White Plains, New York flying on their edge and making a whirring
sound. They were in sight for 5-6 seconds. A Project Blue Book
“unidentified” case. (Source: Project Blue Book files counted in official
statistics, case 1502).

1952 – In the evening a Master Sergeant near Rapid City,
South Dakota saw 12-14 glowing orange objects in the sky. They flew
straight and level, and seemed to be going faster than jet aircraft. A
Project Blue Book “unidentified” case. (Source: Project Blue Book files
counted in official statistics, case 1479).

1955 – Shortly before noon in Bexleyheath, England and
while driving a country road with two passengers, Mr. Fry noticed a dark
shadow hanging over the road. His car began to slow down, and stop and
start intermittently. Above was an gray oval-shaped disc 100 to 150 feet
in diameter. It was spinning and making a swishing or humming noise. The
UFO flipped over and rose up into the sky. (Source: FSR, November
1976, p. 30).

1955 – At dusk a man in Meopham, Kent County, England
had taken his dog out for a walk through some local fields when he
suddenly felt that he was being watched. Also, his dog was acting
peculiar and the hairs on his dog’s back were standing straight up. He
looked up and saw a very large, hovering cigar-shaped object with large
rounded windows, almost directly overhead. The windows were brightly
lit and inside he could see several humanoid figures who appeared
to be observing him. The object followed him without making any
noise, as he ran with his dog across the fields and to his home.
The witness hid inside his house, and he last saw the object hovering
over some nearby buildings. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, case
# 838, citing Mrs M. Fry, Contact, FSR, Volume. 27, # 5).

1962 – On this day X-15 pilot and future astronaut White was
flying at 58 miles above the Earth from his desert takeoff point in
California when he saw and took movie film of a grayish-white UFO.
It paced the X-15 for five seconds, and then darted above and behind the
plane. (Source: NICAP UFO Investigator, September 1962, p. 8).

1965 – On this night in Samarai, Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea
a red glowing cylinder moved about in the sky, from left to right.
During its oscillating behavior it emitted a sound like a diesel
engine. (Source: Michael Hervey, UFOs over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 155).

1965 – Colonia, Uruguay.
A blindingly bright object, smaller than an airplane and having
metallic legs, was seen on the bank of the Rio de la Plata River by two
workers and four young men. White smoke emerged from the craft, which
remained on the sand for two minutes, leaving X-shaped ground marks. It
flew up to about 10 meters altitude, stopped, then went away. The craft
showed a round central section with two oval ends and looked somewhat
similar to an egg. (Sources: Belfast News, July 20, 1965; Brad Steiger, Strangers From the Skies,  p. 40; Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case # 655).

1966 – Rebouillon, France. Rene Pebre and two others were driving back from Draguignan at 3:45 a.m. when they saw a gray
oval-shaped metallic object, about five meters long, hovering at
a low altitude about 300 meters away from them. It emitted a beam of light. They also noticed
that there were several window-like openings on the craft. All the dogs in the vicinity
were barking. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia: A Century of Landings, case # 781, citing GEPA, September 1966).

1967 – While driving home at 1:00 a.m. in Newville,
Pennsylvania Mr. Stanley L. noticed a light that he first
thought was the moon, but it moved towards him and dropped into a position
directly in front of his car. It paced him, keeping a distance of 15 to 20
yards, while he drove along at 55 mph. It was a rounded object, 10-15 in
diameter, and was glowing brightly with an orange light. Stanley thought
he could see the shadowy silhouette of a man inside the object working
controls. When he slowed down the UFO rose above the telephone wires but
continued to pace him the rest of the way home. At home he called out his
sister Joanne, and her boyfriend Carl, and all three of them saw the
object hovering over a field. When he drove away it followed his car
again, and returned with him to the house where they could now make out
the form of the occupant inside the object. The object made no sound.
While they went inside the house the UFO disappeared. This encounter
occurred during a continuing wave of UFO sighting reports in south central
Pennsylvania. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT:

1967 – At 3:15 in the afternoon in Arc-sous-Cicon, Doubs department,
France four children saw three dark humanoids with protruding
stomachs who spoke an unintelligible language that sounded like musical
tones. They were dressed in black suits. Broken vegetation, a circle of
burnt grass four meters in diameter, and three small footprints were found
at the site. Several hours later there were widespread reports of
fireballs seen by hundreds of people throughout Europe. Some believed
these sightings were the result of a satellite re-entry or possibly a
spectacular meteor. According to investigator Eric Zurcher, “We now know
that the beings in question were already in the area three days earlier,
since they were seen on the 14th and 15th by an agricultural worker.”

1967 – Mr. E. Browne of Belfast, Northern
was walking in the woods near his home on this evening
when he came upon a “dish-like” object hovering eight feet above the
ground. It was a dull blue-gray color with a rough and pitted outer
surface, and about the size of a car. An opening appeared in the center of
the underside and two silver suited, human-like figures dropped slowly to
the ground and then walked away into the woods. Several minutes later they
came back and drifted back into the craft, which rose silently into the
air and vanished from sight. (Sources: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher,

1967 – At 11:25 p.m. Mrs. Emma Funk was driving down
Route 22 north of Millertown, New York when a shiny black object about the size of a baseball flew into the car’s headlights. It
came right up to her car, seemed to brush against the windscreen, then
veered off to the left. When it made contact the car lit up “like a giant
electric light bulb.” The engine and headlights failed and she lost
consciousness. When she recovered the car was pointing in the opposite
direction and there was a cracked area the size of a man’s fist in the
windshield. In September she underwent hypnotic regression in which she
spoke of the radio being filled with static and unspecified beings, which
turned the car around and struck her across the chest with a rod.

1968 – Near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
at around eleven p.m. a civil servant named Pedro Dema Filho heard
a loud humming noise and was blinded by a powerful beam of light
accompanied by two green lamps. These vanished, and from a door in a
UFO emerged four short greenish entities not much over 20 inches
tall, wearing something like headphones. They quickly
approached and paralyzed him, and he was unable to run away.
They next seized him and dragged him into their craft,
the interior of which “looked like a laboratory”. There they
questioned him, apparently using telepathy, at length about human
customs. They didn’t seem to have mouths. After that,
they undressed him and conducted a detailed physical examination.
They put a luminous wire device into his mouth that made his body
appear transparent. During this procedure his limbs felt cold, his head
felt like it was spinning, and his tongue felt like it had “turned
to stone.” They finally released him, and he watched the craft fly off
leaving a luminous trail. He felt no subsequent ill effects.

1969 – At 10:50 a.m. in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
a poor quality photograph of a gray domed disc was taken. The object
was estimated to be 20 feet in diameter. It moved through the
sky from the southwest to the northeast at moderate speed, flying
at an estimated 2000 feet altitude. (Source: Joseph Erhardt, UFO Chronolog, June 1970, case # 422).

1969 – At 8:25 p.m. near the airport in West Beach, Adelaide, South Australia
a pinkish object flying at high altitude first stopped in mid-air, then
rocked to-and-fro, and next moved off a short distance to the
northeast. It subsequently doubled back, and finally shot straight
up and was gone. (Sources: Michael Hervey, UFOs Over the Southern Hemisphere, p. 185; Joseph Erhardt, UFO Chronolog, June 1970, case # 424).

– At 10:30 p.m. a man and a woman suffered physiological effects
from a close encounter with a triangular UFO at a farm in Hartford, Vermont. (Sources: APRO Bulletin, September-October 1969, p. 6; Geoffrey Falla, BUFORA Vehicle Interference Project Report, p. 53).

1971 – At 2:00 a.m. a saucer-shaped UFO was seen over a road
northwest of Abidjan, Ivory Coast. A car stalled in the presence of
the disc, and the witnesses felt a sensation of heat. (Source: Isabelle de Joux,
Phenomenes Spatiaux, December 1972, p. 21).

1973 – In the Ramapo Mountains northwest of Oakland, New
at 11:23 p.m. a UFO hovered, then zigzagged slowly about for
ten minutes before disappearing into the clouds. There were six calls to
the police reporting the object. A balloon-shaped object was sighted in
Pompton Lakes, New Jersey at about the same time as sightings over the
Ramapo Mountains area. (Source: Ridgewood Herald News, July 19,

1973 – At 10:00 p.m. on this night three witnesses in the northern Mojave Desert, California
observed the descent of a torpedo-shaped UFO over an isolated area,
close to a ranch owned by one of them. As the UFO hovered near the
ground, three “animate objects” dropped from it to the ground and
“ambled” off in different directions. One witness described two glowing
reddish lights in what would be the approximate placement of eyes in
their heads. The next day tracks similar to those attributed to Bigfoot
were made in the area.  (Source: David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher,
HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # 1973-18 (A1213), citing Peter Gutilla, Saga UFO Report, November 1976).

1974 – Mrs. Jackie Booth of Avon Lake, Ohio–mother
of three–had had several UFO sightings earlier in this year in
March and April, and at the end of June a strange and totally
unexplained condition affected her eyes when light emanated from
them for a two hour period. In early July ground marks that could
have come from a landed UFO were found on her lawn. On this night
she awoke and went to the front door where she found two strange
figures standing. They were about five feet tall and had large heads
that were flat on top, glowing eyes set wide apart, slit-like
mouths, and grayish-colored skin. Their arms were long, but she
could not recall any details below the waist. They entered the house
and appeared interested in Mrs. Booth’s electric organ. She tried to
talk to them, but they communicated with her telepathically, and she
could “feel my thoughts leave my head.” They wanted her to play the
organ, so she sat down and played scales, and when she looked up they
had vanished. She went back to bed and tried to convince herself it had
been a dream. Later, under hypnosis, she recalled additional details.
None of her family had awakened during the incident. Other strange
incidents subsequently occurred. (Source: David F. Webb & Ted
Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case # 1974-37 (A1343), citing Allen Benz for APRO).

1977 – At five o’clock in the morning a glowing sphere landed
on the Nova Melia Ranch near Barra do Corda, Maranhao State, Brazil
only 200 meters from the ranch owner. After the brightness abated, the
ranch owner, Joao Batista Souza, could see that the object was a domed
disc-shaped craft, resembling a straw hat. The man hid behind a mound
and watched as a door in the craft opened, and a short being about
one meter in height got out. The hairy humanoid was carrying some
sort of torch emitting a red light in his left hand, and some other
type of “tool” in his right hand. The being’s face could not
be seen because it was wearing a full helmet with “antennae,” but the
rest of its body was completely covered in hair. At this point the
rancher apparently lost consciousness, because members of his
family later found him lying where he had hid and carried him into
the ranch house, where he remained in bed for several days, too weak to
get up. (Sources: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1977,
case # 2510, citing Daniel Rebisso Geise, FSR, Volume 39, Number
3; Larry Hatch, U computer database, case 12248; citing FSR).

1977 – On this day a police dog handler saw a white cigar-shaped UFO above the village of Arkesden, Essex, England.
A woman also reported seeing the same object at the same time,
from 20 miles away. (Source: Gary Heseltine, Catalogue of Police
Reports of UFOs, case 63, citing The Daily Mail, July 18, 1977).

1978 – A one-meter diameter sphere was seen spinning 1.5 meters
above the ground in Castanheira de Pera, Portugal at 5:30 in the
morning. At the site witnesses found scorched earth and burnt rocks. Later
that evening, at 7:15 p.m., several witnesses saw a circular UFO in the
sky above Chacabuco, Argentina. It varied in color between red and
yellow. (Source: Victor Lourenco, PORTUCAT: Portugal UFO computer
database, case 221; Stendek, December 1978, p. 13).

1983 – On this night an abduction occurred in Sommerecourt,
France. At ten o’clock in the evening a luminous globe paralyzed a
45-year-old man, Mr. S. Gasparovic, and then levitated him into the air.
He lost consciousness at this point and experienced an episode of missing
time. He regained consciousness in the hospital. He was told that he was
found wandering “like a robot” and he recalled that he had spoken to small
beings with pointed ears. (Source: Lumieres dans la Nuit, issue no.

1986 – A UFO zigzagged over Westwood, Massachusetts at
12:26 a.m. (Source: Paul Ferrughelli, Computer Catalog of UFO Reports,
, case 757).

1989 – A mystery animal death and cattle mutilation occurred in
Maple Valley, Washington. The tongue, sexual organs, rectum, and
part of the jaw had been removed. The scene appeared to be unusually
bloodless. (Source: Timothy Good, Alien Contact, p. 154).

1991 – A large crop formation was discovered in a wheatfield
near Barbury Castle, England. It consisted of large concentric
circles in the center surrounded by a triangle with circles at each of the
three apexes. (Source: Lucy Pringle, Crop Circles: The Greatest Mystery
of Modern Times
, p. 52).

1992 – At 6:30 p.m. a bright UFO was sighted hovering just above
the ocean off the coast near Iguape, Brazil. It sucked up a wide
column of water. At the same time an engineer from Cascavel, Brazil
reported that a bright ball of light followed his car for a few minutes. A
saucer-shaped object followed behind the sphere. (Sources: Bob Pratt,
UFO Danger Zone: Terror and Death in Brazil-Where Next?, p. 231;
Causistica Brasileira de 1992, case 9).

1993 – A peculiar looking robot-like humanoid was seen flying
low over the terrain near Rome, Italy. It was viewed by a family
with binoculars. While the witnesses was calling the airport the “robot”
disappeared from sight. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact
Database 1993, case no. 1707, citing London UFO Studies, Skylink,
issues # 6 & 7).

1996 – At 9:00 a.m. on I-64 southeast of Damiansville,
Illinois a low-flying triangular UFO approached an interstate ramp
and then hovered over some trees for 4-5 minutes. It appeared like
“polished steel”. It made not sound and vanished mysteriously. That
evening a woman in Langruth, Manitoba saw a disc-shaped object
moving slowly and quietly through her farmyard. The disc was about 3-4
meters in diameter, about half a meter tall, and had slit like lights
along the edge. Three circular patches of green growth appeared in the
area where the object was first seen. (Sources: Curt Sutherly, UFO
Mysteries: A Reporter Seeks the Truth
, p. 198; International UFO
, July 1997, p. 32).

1999 – A couple visiting the Pyramids in Giza, Egypt saw
multiple unexplained lights flying north toward Giza. The lights settled
on the ground and then disappeared. At the site there were dark blue burnt
areas, about the size of two football fields. In places the sand had been
vitrified in 4-5 foot diameter circles. (Source: UFO Magazine
(USA), November 1999, p. 29).

2002 – A bright pulsating ovoid object flew over the river in
Perm, Russia at 12:30 a.m. and became obscured by low clouds. Two
searchlight beams descended from the sky and scanned the river and nearby
homes. After two minutes the beams vanished and the object zoomed away.
(Source: UFO Magazine (USA), October 2002, p. 15).

– At 3:00 a.m. a triangular craft was seen hovering over I-70 in
Lewisburg, Ohio. At 10:45 p.m. a white circular object came out of
nowhere in Portsmouth, Ohio
and dropped above a tree. It hovered at 50 feet
altitude emitting four light beams, that were directed onto the
street below. It made no sound. There were two witnesses and the close
encounter lasted an hour. (Sources: Peter Davenport, National UFO
Reporting Center, Seattle, July 2004 archived webpage; Australasian Ufologist, October 2004, p. 7).
