A 17-year old motorist traveling almost 10 miles north of Aurora Indiana on Saturday night claims to have encountered an unusual figure on the road. While driving his black Chevrolet Cavalier Southbound along North Hogan Road a "figure" was spotted in the headlights of the automobile as it was crouched down near a puddle of water. From the driver's perspective the figure was spotted out the windshield on the right of the car. After passing the frail-looking figure, the driver looked into his rear view mirror and again observed---illuminated by the taillights of his car---what he described as a tall, abnormal figure that moved strangely with pointed joints that "buckled out". He estimated the figure stood around 6 feet, seven inches. "It had protruding joints and moved very strangely." The driver said he was able to ascertain the figure, alleged to be dark gray or black and "pencil thin" stand up and take several steps toward the woods along the roadside. The figure definitely walked on two legs and was thought somehow, to be a male, although no clothing was noted. No face or eyes could be seen, but the witness had the impression that the figure was looking straight at him. The figure was immediately thought to be something out of the ordinary, not a human being.
The duration of the sighting was "hurried" and possibly within the 3 to 4 second range. The driver continued on for a small distance after passing the figure and finally put on his brakes, coming to a stop at an estimated 2 minute walking distance on the road from the location of the sighting. He looked back to further observe the entity. At that point, a second car came into view and approached from the opposite direction, passed and then reached the spot on the road where the figure was thought to be. The 17-year old motorist reportedly watched closely and observed the second car undertake what he thought to be an evasive maneuver near the vicinity of where he thought the figure would be situated, then the car turned around at that spot and shortly pulled up behind him, somewhat in the grass. There was an elderly couple in the car, both in their late 60s or early 70s and both with gray hair. The driver, who wore glasses said, "Boy, did you see something back there? I'll tell you right now, that was no person." The passenger, an elderly female said, "It was no human being. It was no man." The elderly couple were reportedly "spooked" but offered to follow the first witness the remainder of the trip down North Hogan Road, clearly in the opposite direction of their intended destination route. It was thought that the elderly couple observed this same figure on the opposite side of the road, and possibly had observed it more closely.
Later, the 17-year old witness was said to have become hysterical, and within an hour was describing the figure as an "alien".

In the middle of the night the witness, Jim, (involved in previous encounters) suddenly found himself wide-awake. A loud buzzing sound filled his ears. He was curled up on his bed in a fetal position facing the closest wall. He felt a force push on the back of his head. It did not hurt but felt extremely uncomfortable. Again he heard the now familiar "clicking" sound in his head. This time it panned from his right ear to the left. He looked at his arm and it was covered in a bluish purplish pulsating energy. He could not move his legs and arms; he could just move his head.
Somehow he managed to break free and used all his effort to turn around. Standing before him in the center of the bedroom was some kind of short humanoid creature, with a large mantis/fly looking head. A beam of energy seemed to be shooting from the alien to the witness. Thousands of thoughts entered his head at the same time. Strangely he felt no fear and felt as he had known the strange being all his life, but also felt that he had been somehow manipulated into feeling this. He then heard a slow deep voice, almost overwriting all his other thoughts. It seemed to be communicating telepathically. It said in an abrupt manner, "Now do you understand?" "Yes" the witness found himself answering, but he had no idea why he said that. "Good" It replied. The witness then turned his head back to the wall and shut his eyes. The buzzing sound stopped and he felt extremely tired. He then collapsed and lost consciousness.
He described the creature as humanoid, 5 ft 5 inches in height. Its head was huge in relation to its body. Its eyes were extremely large, shiny, and insect-like and were supported by big sockets. His first impression was that it looked like a cross between a praying mantis and a fly.
The being appeared to be surrounded by a bluish purplish field of energy. In the center of its cloak was a golden badge, there was definitely a design or symbol on it, but the witness could not make it out. He looked closer at the head and it had two protrusions between the eyes and a mass of protrusions was in the area where a mouth would normally be.
The witness woke up the next day feeling very tired.

Virginia and her husband had retired and purchased a home near the Maryland coast, the house was 85 years old and needed some major repairs. Most of the repairs involved an interior facelift. A small room with an old desk and empty file cabinets on the second floor of the two story home was slated to become a part of a larger room next to it with the removal of a wall. Some old suitcases, empty packing crates and other debris had been left in there as well.
With contractor work scheduled to begin within a few days, Virginia, her husband and two friends went to work removing everything from the small room. They moved the desk and file cabinets out first, and then began bundling up the old suitcases and various pieces of debris left in the corners, of the small room. While the four worked, Virginia began to feel a bit sick to her stomach. Her husband and friends complained of similar feelings over the next few moments.
Before any of them had time to consider their sudden, unexplained illness, an odd green mist filled one corner of the room. As all present were focused on the green mist, they could see a human form taking shape. It looked like a man dressed in what all agreed later was a sailor's white uniform. It did not appear to be a modern uniform, but one that might have been worn 50 or 60 years ago. None were familiar with Naval uniforms, but the group came to this conclusion after viewing photos of US sailors from the 40's. Within seconds, the man became solid and started to move a bit.
Virginia's husband had been an electrician for years before he retired and noted that he smelled the odor of over-heated circuitry in conjunction with the sailor's appearing. Before anyone could say or do anything, the sailor looked at the group and said, "2005. Watch out for 2005! They're playing with your future!" (Boy isn't that the truth!) After that, the sailor faded into the wall and the green mist dissipated in less than ten seconds. All agreed later that they had heard his voice and everyone heard the same thing. They described the sailor's voice as deep and full, but sounding a bit muffled.

77-year old Mrs. K J woke up late at night and went to the lavatory and back to her bedroom, as she passed through the kitchen she was surprised to see a strong flame-orange light, which floated in the sky. She quickly realized that it couldn't be the moon. The light had the shape of a hemisphere, the upper part was rounded and its bottom was flat. The light was 2-3 times bigger than the full moon.
The witness states that the light hung above the forest over Hajdowka hill, which was 1.5 km from her house. She watched for about 5 minutes and felt dizzy and then she went to bed.
During the night she had a disturbing "dream" about a strange meeting with a huge shiny "thing". She awoke feeling very frightened around 0630A.

The witness was returning to her house after finishing a late night farm chore when something caught her eye as she almost reached her door. To her left she saw a "thing" running very fast about 30 yards away from her, not comprehending what she was seeing, she could only describe the entity as looking like a "stick man." It seemed to turn its head over his left shoulder and look straight at her, and then it took off in a sprint towards her front door. Very upset the witness ran inside and locked all the doors. It took her 2 hours to calm down; she began to sob so hard that she started to hyperventilate. She never told anyone, including her family about what she had seen. She felt that the "thing" wanted her to see it, for some unknown reason

26-year old Liliana Nievas was sitting in her patio with her boyfriend when suddenly several "cascotazos" (a sort of rock or brick abundant in the area) fell on the two apparently coming from an area behind the patio. Liliana went alone to investigate when she came upon a short dark "man", which began to pummel her and attempted to drag her away. She could only describe the entity as short, dark and shadowy, which covered her mouth and began to drag her on the ground. Hearing her screams, several neighbors, family members, and her boyfriend ran to find the woman lying on the ground suffering facial injuries. She kept screaming that "he is trying to drag me away" as the astounded group watched as a mysterious force indeed seemed to pull her away, however they did not see anybody. Finally with the help of her boyfriend and others they managed to hold Liliana down and the force seemed to release her. She was taken to a local hospital suffering from grievous injuries.
Others in the area reported being pelted by bricks and another witness reported seeing a shadowy entity stealing fruit from his backyard.

Emily Parkinson was lying in bed when a bright white light suddenly was reflected in her mirror. Instantly she sat up terrified and went to the window to see whether it was her husband coming home. She then saw a figure of approximately 6 ft in height standing on her lawn. It seemed to have a huge eye on its stomach (?) resembling huge black circles that seemed to pierce the witness head with an incredibly high-pitched sound. She was fixed to the spot with terror, as the strange creature seemed to slowly dissolve from view.

Several local inhabitants reported hearing a very loud booming noise over the area and what appeared to be a metallic object falling into the beach area. For a while they did not approach the supposed crash site because of fear. However others reported that the object was huge and disc-shaped, apparently metallic, without windows or wings. Soon after the "crash" members of the Mexican Territorial Army cordoned off the area and warned local inhabitants not to approach the area. Others have reported seeing similar disc-shaped craft flying at a high altitude over the area.

Constable Jagdish Parishad who on Thursday was keeping vigil on the international border had seen a flying object like a hot air balloon carrying three persons who disembarked after landing in Pakistani territory.
Since the constable had never seen a para-glider, fan glider or even a hot air balloon during his service tenure, it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of the matter.
Just prior to the UFO sighting Pakistani troops backed
by helicopter gunships and artillery detained 20 people in raids against suspected Al-Qaeda hideouts in a tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

On a very cold night, the witness, Marina was in her room reading a book when she heard loud scratching noises on her window. Startled she looked at the window and saw a bizarre entity with a very large head and strange red eyes. The entity stared at Marina and mumbled some words, which Marina thought it meant for her to come and open the window because he wanted to talk to her. In a trance-like state she opened the window and the entity then spoke the following words, "Humans less and less value their planet, and each day that goes by they destroy the planet a little more, humans do not realize that they are destroying themselves also." Moments later the entity vanished.

A silhouette of a man who walks on rooftops, drags heavy chains and makes strange noises turned into a disquieting "phantom" that has made residents of Monte Maiz restless. Opinions on the "phantom" are diametrically opposed, since some claim having seen "a figure standing over 2 meters tall, dressed in black and with spectacular agility" while others say its all imagination. The local residents call it "the phantom". Those who have seen it say that it is a young person, very tall and slim, with red eye. It dresses in white, sometimes black and others gray. Always wears a hat and covers its face with a mask or hood.
The sounds on the rooftops begin after 2100 hours, as do the calls to the police. Residents claim that it walks on the roof, shuffles and runs, drags chains, scratches at windows and bangs at doors. It doesn't speak or yell---it has only been heard to laugh in the dark or whistle, some claim having heard it imitate the howling of a dog. Locals say that it runs swiftly and jumps over barbed wire fencing and walls without touching them, according to concerned neighbors. Some eyewitness accounts follow:
Ivana Molina had gone out to her yard and saw a man dancing, whistling and slapping his hands. The neighbors heard similar noises. The next day, she went out and the same man tried to grab her. She ran into the house and phoned the police. It then banged on her bathroom window and wrote "mueres" (you'll die) with its finger.
Oscar Gonzalez reported standing in the yard when he saw a shadow walking along. He could see its red eyes. He then went out with another fellow to find it and the "phantom" jumped the neighbor's yard. It was dressed in white. The following day it whistled at the men again. They went out to chase it and it vanished.
Veronica Bertrando reported that her husband saw it as it crossed the patio; he said it was dressed in gray with a hood over its head. When it went by the dog >barked, her husband then went outside and it took off running. He searched for it but could not find it.
Local police offered the following additional details on the stranger (or strangers?), 1.8 to 1.9 meters tall, dresses in black, a white face (possibly a mask) wears a black hat, its movements are generally silent and possesses extreme agility, it jumps over fences, walls and climbs up trees with ease. It normally appears between 2130 to 0300 hours

A sort of "inner voice" told the witness to get his camera and go outside. He waited for about 5 minutes then a bright white light shone on his eyes and then he saw three disc-shaped craft surrounding a large cigar-shaped object maneuvering overhead. The discs kept circling around the cigar. He took three photographs then he was again illuminated by a bright white light and suddenly found himself on his bed the next morning. He suffered from nosebleeds after the incident and had strange lucid "dreams" of seeing a little "black man" who enters his bedroom and tells him that they are taking him. He remembers running and then being shot in the arm by a laser-like light. He woke up the next morning shivering and with his arm sore

Steven Nicklin and a friend were walking across Northicote Farm near an old Tudor farmhouse when both men saw a humanoid grayish figure with a human-type head standing on a tree, which formed part of the many trees that bordered the farm, these were tall pine trees, and the figure stood on the top branches. They estimated the size of the figure as being about 2.1 meters in height. It had two legs and two arms connected to membrane-type wings. Its clawed hands seemed connected to the wings, somehow resembling a pterosaur. It moved its head and looked directly at the witnesses, since the moon was full and there was a streetlight not far away. It turned its head from the witnesses and then took one giant leap and glided to the next tree. The tree bent under the creature's weight as it took the impact. It then turned its head to look at them once more. Its gaze felt that "it could look into their very being (soul)". Both men felt quite scared and both fled the area quickly. The men said that it was a creature they had never seen before nor wanted to see again.

The witness was on his paper route and was driving at about 25-30 mph when he saw a real bright light in the sky about the size of the moon. He pulled up to the side to catch a better glimpse of the object. About 1 minute passed when all of the sudden it disappeared. Then after 10 seconds of dead silence a round bright object landed right in front of the witness. It was circular and glowed very brightly. It was probably about 25 ft in height and about 100 ft in diameter. Stunned the witness heard a voice as if someone was talking to him gently in his ear. He looked around and did not see anybody. All of the sudden the craft didn't glow anymore and on the side of the craft it said, "future". The voice then said, "nobody else can see this but you, we are from the future, you are a representative now of the future for this mass (sic), please lead or there will be dire consequences." The voice talked very slowly and clearly in perfect English. He still couldn't see anybody but after the voice stopped talking he shouted, "who the hell are you"! And then everything disappeared. After about 10 minutes of reflecting on what had occurred, the witness drove home.

44-year old Miss Wiktoria Lesniakiewicz was in her bedroom when she suddenly noticed her cat, which had died several days ago. She followed the animal. The cat walked out of the bedroom through the closed door, but feeling very tired Wiktoria went to sleep. That same night she had a strange "dream" about her cat. She woke up feeling the cat's hot body on her legs. At the same time she sensed and heard strange voices and music. Three separate voices were discussing something, speaking in a strange language. The music resembled classical music, very similar to the Mozart symphonies, but it was definitely not a Mozart composition. Afraid, Wiktoria turned the lamp on. The voices and the music then slowly faded away. She was unable to sleep the rest of the night.

The witness, M N, was driving eastward on Wellington Street on the southeastern end of Lake Superior and as he came to the central part of the city (known to locals of the Lake Superior region as Soo, Canada). He noticed a straight beam of light hovering in the early morning sky, from the top of the hill that was on his northern side. His vehicle came to a complete stop at a cross street and he looked all the way down to the end of the street (about 7 blocks away) because the street ended at the base of the hill and has a metal stairwell leading to McDonald Avenue. Although being 7 blocks away his eyes were able to focus on a little dark figure that was standing very still. This caught his curiosity as he slowly drove towards it, and then started moving from side to side using fluid movements as if it >was hovering in mid-air. It moved as if it was confused, or afraid and didn't know what to do. As he got closer, the figure's appearance seemed to have metamorphosed into a transparent, shadow like entity that very swiftly flew up the stairs. To his astonishment, the beam of light that he had seen in the sky a few minutes before and a couple of miles away was now at the top of the hill, only about 100 ft away. With his heart racing, he drove as fast as he could eastward along the base of the hill until he came to the nearest hill street and drove up McDonald Avenue to see what was happening. In a matter >of seconds, traveling from the bottom to the top of the hill, he arrived at the top of the steps only to find three circle-shaped burn markings on the pavement of the street. Approximately 10 seconds later he heard a very weird kind of gunshot sound, looked up to the sky and saw a bright light shooting up into the stars. As he watched the spectacle a surreal kind of peaceful feeling came upon him and he felt as if every hair on his body as standing on end. The feeling only lasted for what felt like 30 seconds, but when he looked at his watch it was a good 40 minutes later.
