-- Capt. James Hooton was hunting in the vicinity of Homan, Arkansas
when he heard the noise of a steam engine and found an object in a clearing. It looked like a cylinder with pointed ends, lateral wheels, and had a horizontal blade overhead. Hooton spoke with a man who wore dark glasses and walked behind the craft. There were three or four occupants in total. The witness was told this was indeed "The Airship" and that it used compressed air for propulsion. Capt. Hooton saw the wheels spin when the craft rose and flew away.

- Mr. Robertson was driving about 13 km west of Lufkin, Texas
when he saw a round object about three meters in diameter hovering about 7 meters above him. It had a dull red glow. It took off with a "swooshing roar" as sparks flew from a slot under it. Minutes later the witness felt a burning sensation on his face. (Sources: Flying Saucers

- A dark cylinder was sighted over London, England
at 10 o'clock in the morning, flying at 40,000 feet altitude. It was moving from north to south at a speed in excess of 1,500 mph. Jet interceptors couldn't reach or catch it. (Source: Toronto (Ontario) Globe & Mail,

- At 9:15 p.m. several people at a drive-in theatre in Flint, Michigan
saw several groups of UFOs fly over. There were two to nine objects in a group, and a total of 20 groups. The UFOs made changes in direction like conventional aircraft at a high rate of speed, but a red glow surrounded each object. The weather was clear at the time, and the sighting was reported to the Air Force by a Naval Aviation student. (Sources: NICAP UFO Investigator

- At 3:30 a.m., near Estacion Casalegno in Santa Fe, Argentina
the conductor of a train, Enrique R. Galimberti and another crew member saw what appeared to be bright multi-colored lights about 120 meters away from the tracks. Thinking it was a fire, Galimberti stopped the train and both men attempted to approach the scene, armed with fire extinguishers. When they got close to the area they saw the multicolored lights moving around in a circular motion, and then both observed a square metallic object over three meters in width behind the lights. It had several lighted windows around its edge. At the front the UFO had what appeared to be a "rotating wheel" that emitted multicolored light flashes. Several short humanoid beings were seen walking around the object.
They wore silvery gray shiny uniforms, appeared to be bareheaded, and carried what resembled "rifles" or weapons on their shoulders. The witnesses used the train horn to check for a reaction from the creatures but there was none. Another railway employee, Salvador Pomidoro, reported seeing the same square metallic object on the ground about 15 minutes earlier. (Source: Albert S.

- On this evening in Itaucu, Goias state, Brazil
, 25-year-old Adelino Roque was on his way to the local Serradinho ranch on his horse when a bright beam of light struck him from above. He soon found himself inside some kind of dark, drum-like object that was totally silent. The object was moving through the sky at a very high speed. He blanked out and could not remember anything after that. He awoke lying on top of a rock next to the Paranaiba River, miles from his original location. Meanwhile, his horse had been found tied up at another ranch, apparently unharmed. Sr. Roque also appeared to be unharmed except for a strange bruise on his side.
He did not remember seeing any entities or hearing anyone talk to him during the time he was missing. Soon after his experience he began neglecting his work and drinking heavily. He also reportedly fell in love with his 17-year-old niece. A month later Roque again was reported missing, this time along with his niece. On June 12, both Roque and his niece were found dead under unusual circumstances. Some said they had been poisoned. (Sources: Gordon Creighton, FSR

- At 11:00 p.m. Mr. & Mrs. Phillips were driving on Highway 11 one mile west of Browntown, Wisconsin
when a UFO came directly over their car, then hovered just 100 feet away off to the right. Its color changed from orange to yellow-orange to red as it moved. It was kettle-drum shaped, and had lights streaming from the bottom in a cone shape. The UFO followed their car home, for a total of five minutes. The UFO made a "tweeting" sound.

- Mark Marston, age 11, was looking for bird's nests in a hedge in Herbrandston, Pembrokeshire, Wales
when "a red glow appeared in the sky 50 yards away." A few moments later a figure appeared and drifted through a closed gate at the other end of the field. It was dressed in a silver suit, like a diver, with a large helmet and a square, featureless face. It approached Mark rapidly, who turned and fled for home, screaming. (Source: David F.

- Barrio Aguerre, Ciudad Treinta Y Tres, Uruguay
. At 12:40 a.m. 19-year-old Luis Vital Carneiro was returning home after visiting friends during a powerful electrical storm in the region. After entering a field through a gate he noticed a strange light cavorting over the field. Then, about 50 meters away near a barbwire fence, he noticed two short humanoid figures. Curious, he jumped the fence and approached the figures. At a distance of ten meters from the humanoids he noticed that they were projecting lights from the top of their heads down toward the ground.
These lights suddenly turned red, and the two figures disappeared to re-appear 30 meters from the road. As Carneiro attempted to jump the barbwire fence again, a beam of light struck him that knocked him senseless. When he regained his composure Carneiro ran to his aunt's house nearby and told her what had happened.
Mrs. Orialis De Los Santos, his aunt, went out into her garden where she saw in the nearby field a group of four humanoids that seemed to quickly glide back and forth above the ground. Accompanied by Vital, they then counted a total of thirteen humanoids that "glided" about in different directions, within an area of about 100 square meters. For almost an hour the witnesses watched the strange humanoids cavort about as if playing.
Vital Carneiro again attempted to approach one of the humanoids but again was knocked down by a beam of red light that seemed to come from the creature's head. He fell to the ground feeling as he had been struck by lighting. Concerned for his safety, Mrs De Los Santos ran to her stricken nephew and dragged him inside the house.
From inside the house they could still see the short humanoids gliding about, plus at about 500 meters distance, behind some trees, a large bright silvery light appeared on the ground that began slowly rising up and down. The witnesses described the humanoids as 60 cm in height, with very large heads, triangular faces, large pointed ears, and rounded eyes. Their bodies were small and "rectangular" in shape. They wore a kind of gray uniform and a rounded cap from where the beams of light originated.
They seemed to communicate among themselves in quick bursts of "buzzing sounds." They glided quickly across the ground and according to Mrs. De Los Santos they stood on small rounded platforms. However, Carneiro does not recall seeing the platforms. (Sources: UFO Newsclipping Service

- Sometime after three a.m. a man in County Tyrone, Ireland
awoke trying to scream and immediately became aware of two unusual humanoid figures standing by his bed. One was short and the other tall and lumpy, and the second being somehow had its head inside the witness's mouth. The beings were communicating in a language that resembled the ringing of bells. The witness could not move or yell because he was paralyzed. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1982, case # 1508, citing Steve Gerrard, Northern UFO News # 101).
