If you listened to the most recent Arcane Radio presentation, our guest Albert Rosales and I were discussing sightings in Cuba and the possibility that new reports will surface when more political restrictions are lifted. You can listen to the podcast at --> Arcane Radio Live Show Archive: 7.27.2015 with Albert Rosales In the meantime, Albert has forwarded several humanoid reports from Cuba:
Location. Near Guines Cuba
Date: 1930 Time: midnight
Medical Doctor and Cuban naval captain, Dr. M.T. Alvarez was driving over a bridge on the road between Guines and La Habana when the car headlights illuminated a short figure less than 2ft tall standing on the road ahead. The naval captain thinking that it was a “lost child” stopped his car and approached the figure, grabbing it under its arms and attempting to lift it. But he was stunned as he realized that the figure was extremely heavy and he could not budge it. Somewhat afraid the witness left the small entity alone and went back into his vehicle, immediately leaving the area.

Date: March 1933 Time: evening
On holly Friday 12-year old Onelia Fernandez was collecting mangos next to a river located close to her house. She had been warned to come back home early due to the local superstition dealing with holy Friday. Suddenly her mother notices a strange figure carrying Onelia and dragging her towards the river. Armed with sticks and knives several family members immediately ran to her aid. The bizarre figure accosted by sticks and rocks dropped Onelia, who was now unconscious and flew away across the river. The creature was described as tall, black with large claws and huge wings; it emitted loud screeching noises as it fled the scene.

Location. La Habana, Cuba
Date: 1944 Time: 09:00 a.m.
Living in the neighborhood of Manrique & Campanario the 5-year old witness was in his bedroom when he saw what appeared to be pinkish smoke forming in the street just outside his window, the pinkish smoke took the form of what appeared to be a television screen about 30” in width. Within the screen he then saw a square-shaped room where he saw several of what appeared to be cushions on the floor, the figure of a man then began to materialize. He could not judge the height of the individual, which then seemed to approach the witness. The witness described the figure as having Asiatic features, shoulder length silvery-white hair. The eyes were slanted, and without pupils. The figure wore a long light gray robe, and his skin was pale. He wore a silvery belt strap around his neck and three silvery stripes on his forearms. The being spoke to the witness in Spanish admonishing like the child that he was, pointing out that he should behave with his parents and respect them always. At this point the witness heard something fall behind him; looking back he noticed that his mother had apparently passed out upon walking into the room and seeing the witness and the humanoid. The figure then faded away while the witness and the housemaid, Isolina Diaz helped his mother recuperate.

Comments: Rare report of early “bedroom visitation” from Cuba.
Location. Near Camajuani, Santa Clara, Cuba
Date: March 3 1952 Time: 11:00 a.m.
Juan Gonzalez was on his way to visit his girlfriend and to buy some plantains when suddenly he was covered in a bright light that seemed to pull him up into the sky. He tried to resist but he kept rising up into the sky, all he could see above him was a very bright light, nothing else. Moments later he found himself in a very large and clean room, which was lit up by bright blue lights. Gonzalez remained suspended in mid-air. He then heard a door shut behind him and assumed it was the same one he used to enter the room. Very afraid, he thought he was going to die. Suddenly his clothing and shoes were suddenly removed by unseen hands. Ashamed of being totally naked he tried to cover himself but could not move his hands. He then heard some voices that seemed to approach his location but could not see anything, only bright blue lights. He then fell asleep and later woke up in the same location where he had been originally ‘picked up’ he was now lying on the grass and was fully clothed, including shoes. He then walked to a nearby house and was approached by numerous locals screaming, “He is back, he is back!” Confused, he was stunned when they told him that he had been missing for almost a month, the date was already April 3. However no one believed Gonzalez when he told them what had happened to him.

Location. General Carrillo, near Remedios, Cuba
Date: 1955 Time: early morning
Estela Caso was washing some clothing on a field near her home when she suddenly heard a voice from behind her shouting “Tierra, Tierra, Tierra!” (Means Earth!), when she turned around she saw a ‘man’ wearing a strange suit and a helmet on his head. She began to scream and this apparently also startled the tall stranger, who looked down on her intently. Suddenly the stranger pulled a lever on his suit and he rose up into the air at very high speed, a strong gaseous cloud enveloped the witness causing her to have trouble breathing. She was taking to the nearby hospital of “Emma Cabrera” where she was treated by doctors.

Comments: Early report describing a flying humanoid, apparently using some type of apparatus. Translated by Albert S Rosales
Location. Near Remedios, Las Villas Province (now Villaclara), Cuba
Date: April 14 1948 Time: midnight
On all Friday all Saints Days, Jose Espinoza got up early in order to arrange some sugar cane carts, which he had left in the fields in order to work on them later. Ignoring his mother’s his mother’s pleas not to go out on such a Holy day because the “Devil himself was out doing his work on this day” Jose headed out to the carts. Soon after climbing on the first cart he began his labors, suddenly he noticed standing on the last cart (there were four carts) a little man, only about one foot and a half in height, fiery red in color, emitting sparks from “horn like protrusions and a tail”. The little man noticed the stunned Jose and produced a small ball of fire which he flung at Jose, he repeated this several times; rolling several balls of fire at Jose, each ball was bigger than the last. Jose barely managed to avoid the fiery spheres, and could not further react to the situation. Finally he reacted and screamed with all his might, “this is the devil!”, and quickly jumped from the cart, running towards his house without stopping.

Comments: Whatever entity Jose encountered he associated it with the devil and this probably caused a deviation on the description of the humanoid.

Strange Night at Home
I received the following account from a reader who lives near me:
I don't remember the exact day but in May 1995 my husband and were awakened at the exact same time from beeping coming from the kitchen downstairs. From what I remember the time was around 3-4 am. We went downstairs in the dark to investigate. The beeping was continuing and I first looked at my dishwasher. I thought maybe there was a power failure which causes it makes a noise and an LED shows some letters and numbers on the panel. We had no power failure (clock on the microwave was still on instead of saying reset. No LED was lit up on the dishwasher and the beeping kept continuing. We couldn't place where it was coming from; seemed like it was surrounding us. My husband and I turned towards the area of the kitchen where on the left is the laundry room and 4 feet to the right the door that leads to the garage. Which of course was closed. We saw a diffused light glowing like a shiny misty fog. It was translucent and I could see the wall and trash can in between the two doors through it. The light was floating for a lack of a better description.
We looked at both doors and no light, mist was coming out of the top, bottom or sides of the doors. My husband then turned on the kitchen light and both the mysterious misty light and beeping went away and stopped. We both stood there amazed and stunned. It should be noted that my husband is one of the most skeptical and close-minded people to unexplained phenomena (I guess opposites attract). He told me if he didn't see or experience this he would have thought I dreamed it or was crazy.
The next day my oldest son who was 3 1/2 said that "His brother was in his room last night." The problem being that he was almost two years old and slept in a crib and couldn't climb out of it to walk to his older brother's room. My youngest son's bedroom is right above the laundry room and area where the light was seen.
Sometime later I was reading one of Budd Hopkins books about what people felt or heard before they were abducted and was kind of creeped me out for lack of a better word.
After this happened I told some friends (one being a psychic and tarot card reader). To be objective they tried to play Devil's advocate; i.e. light from the garage could have been a car lights (wouldn't shine through a garage door and through the door from the kitchen). Some of their theories were an old Indian burial ground (it was farmland once but I live in Baltimore County near the city line and no mention of burial grounds was ever mentioned in local history). One friend asked if I saw marks on the kids' bodies. Possible abduction since the oldest talked of his brother being in his room. They were just as perplexed as we were and considered it unexplained.
Huge Disc Lands / Abducts Two Boys
6/16/2002: I was 9 at the time. We were having a family get together type thing at my grandmother's house in Blanchard, Oklahoma just off of highway 76 out in the country. Not many houses more land than anything. My grandmother's house has a long driveway from a country road leading up to the house. Lots of trees and some big open areas in land. After eating talking playing etc it was approximately 9:45pm and me and my cousin decided to go outside and walk to the pond. Right before turning into the driveway we let everyone know what we were doing and walk out the back door. Walking toward the front to go to the pond we get to the place were we parked the cars approximately 100ft from back door and we both start to feel vibration in our body's but didn't think to much of it. We walk maybe 15 more feet and we completely I guess go blind. We both see nothing but black. We back up and we can see normal again. It was dark outside but not pitch black you could still see some. We look at each other say that's weird and blow it off and keep walking 5 to 10 more feet. It goes pitch black once more and we hear a super fast swoosh noise of something moving at super fast speeds. After hearing that we can see again and there is a huge disc shaped craft.
It was black with like a chromed finish and I want to say windows around it with every color you could think of coming from inside the craft. Moving from North NE to the right of us we were walking east. It hovered approximately 15 feet away tree high for 30 seconds then descended to an open area of trees landing. At this point we are extremely terrified. We couldn't move. We felt locked in place and having our thoughts scanned. A door opened up popping out from top and periodically turning inside itself until it touched the ground, 3 beings with big heads and huge eyes. It looked like what most people call greys stepped out and walked up to me. The next thing I know I'm inside the craft on a table with the 3 beings looking at me. There was a human looking being standing to the right side. Not sure if it was human or not. The walls looked metallic but also looked like if you touched them u would fall threw. There wasn't much in the room besides a bathtub-looking thing with black goo looking stuff in it. While I'm lying on the table the 3 "greys" stare at me getting inches from my face and I black out. The next thing I know I'm looking up at the sky at it hovering tree high like I went back in time or something and was extremely scared.
My cousin and I ran frantically back to the back door running in the house. This took to what we thought 1 minute to a minute and a half. As we ran in our family members were worried asking us where we have been saying they was looking for us for an hour and a half. I had scars on me and was bleeding down my arm and my head. My cousin had bruises and was bleeding on his knee. We never told them what we encountered. I've had several encounters after this experience the last one happened one day ago 7/26/15 which was the most moving to me. I guess you could say and I need some support or help. This is really making me feel out of place here on earth. I would like to tell my other encounters but I need reassurance that this isn't going to cause me to lose my life. - MUFON CMS
NOTE: Let's hope MUFON follows up on this report. Lon
Scranton Police Officer Claims Encounter with Big Foot in McDade Park
A Scranton Police Officer claims that he had a encounter with Bigfoot in McDade Park in Lackawanna County Pennsylvania this past week.
My name is Scranton Police Officer Xxxxx Xxxxx and I am an eight year veteran, so please keep my name out.
A few days ago I was driving in patrol toward McDade Park in Scranton PA. It was late at night I was just checking the park making sure all was ok and I just noticed a very dark object leaning over the edge of the road near the pool as I drove pass.
I passed extremely close to the object-close enough for me to feel shocked to see a large hairy section of well muscled leg and a big hairy wrist and hand as the creature turned I screamed and grabbed my cell to snap a pic and my gun. I slammed on the brakes and I was ready to shoot I'm combat trained, I have a weapon, I just had to see what the hell it was!I wanted to see the entire thing for myself - but what can I say. Whatever it was for me either was a monkey a huge one or a bigfoot I am not going public with this because it would cost me my job. There is something in that park I heard stories of something roaming the park late at night.

I received the following information from Jon Wyatt, who is a blog contributor and reader from Melbourne, Australia. I don't believe I had been aware of this account previously:
I noticed this story in an 1889 Australian digitalised newspaper and thought you may be interested. It was reprinted from a contemporary American publication.
The report describes how several people saw a phantom plowman and two fiery horses in a field near Lower Merion, Pa, in March 1886. The apparition manifested for 2-3 nights and left behind a neatly plowed area.
Lower Merion is an old town first settled by Welsh immigrants in the 1690s, as the phantom was not recognised it possibly came from the 1700s.
The legend is mentioned in the book Unnatural Phenomena: A Guide to the Bizarre Wonders of North America by Jerome Clark and John Clark.
I wonder how many laws of physics were violated at Lower Merion. Are you aware of a haunting where so much supernatural evidence was left?
A PHANTOM PLOUGHMAN
In the north-western corner of Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, Pa., a great hubbub has been raised by a phantom farmer who is nightly seen ploughing in a field. The apparition was first discovered about the end of March  by a farm hand who was returning from courting. Emerging from a wooded pathway that skirted an old forest for miles, this rustic was startled to hear a sepulchral voice commanding a team to halt. He looked in vain about the place for a moment or two, and was about moving on again when the same sound fell on his ear. A shiver crept over him as he heard the croaking of an unseen harness, and his terror was far from being allayed by the whinny of a horse almost directly before him. At that moment the new moon stole over the neighbouring tree tops, and in its misty light he plainly saw the phantom farmer. It was clearly outlined against the dark background, and its two hands held in a steady grasp the projecting handles of a plough. Before it marched a pair of spirited horses, dimly outlined in the misty light, their heads erect and their eyes flashing fire as they moved hastily along. The young man waited another moment to reassure himself, and was about to take to his heels when ploughman, horse, and plough suddenly vanished. Then he, too, fled in wild alarm.
SEEN BY SEVEN MEN
At Silas Brown's corner grocery on the night succeeding this, the young man, Albert Cooper, by name, told this startling story. The crowd adjourned to the alleged scene of the ghost's operations to verify or disprove Cooper's tale. They had not long to wait. Without the noises that had warned Cooper the night before, the phantom farmer appeared before the eyes of the seven men who sat upon the fence, or, to be more accurate, who almost fell from it in terror. His long white hair and beard streamed in the passing wind. No hat was upon his head, nor could any portion of his face be soon except the glistening eyes. These shot out from a height of more than seven feet from the ground, indicating the spectral granger was taller than the average of human kind. About his body, which could not well be traced, there was a phosphorescent glow which dazzled the eyes of the terrified spectators and shone far ahead of the steadily moving hones. The plough he leaned on seemed of skeleton frame, but it tossed off the soft, moist earth as easily as a steamer turns the river waves. On he came, the horses seeming to exhale fire, their heads erect and arching, and footfall as firm and clear as any the watchers ever heard. At the corner of the field they turned obediently at a word from their spectral driver, and again passed before the affrighted spectators, who thereupon fled in haste.
THE FIELD PLOUGHED BY THE GHOST
On the following morning a crowd of rustics determined to go to the field and see whether any trace of the farmer could be found. As they came in sight of the enclosure one of the number exclaimed in astonishment : 'I'll be durned if the thing doesn't plough, sure enough.' He was right. One-half of the field had been gone over evidently by no novice. The furrows were not quite so broad as those made by an ordinary ploughman. but they were less ragged and more deep, and were as straight as the most experienced eye could make them. A day or two after the same group went out to view the fields again, and this time they found that the phantom had finished the work. The owner of the field was one of the number, and he took a solemn oath that he had not turned a sod in the enclosure.
