Location/Date: Near Harlingen, Texas - January 1, 1976 - afternoon
Tracey Lawson, eleven, and her cousin Jackie Davies fourteen, were playing in Tracey’s backyard in an area in the Rio Grande Valley. As they looked out on a plowed field beyond the yard they noticed an unusual object standing some 100 yards away, near a borrow pit bordering an irrigation canal.
Tracey went inside her house to get field glasses, through which she observed a “horrible looking” black bird of extraordinary size, over five feet tall. Its wings were folded around its body, and the bird was staring at the girls through large, dark red eyes attached to a gray “gorilla-like” face. Its head was bald, and it had a beak at least six inches long, it made a loud, shrill “eeee” sound. The bird or whatever it was lost to view for a few moments, reappearing on the northeast corner of the property, its head poking above a small clump of trees. The girls fled inside and told Tracey’s mother and father, who did not believe them.
The next day Jackie’s stepfather, Tom Waldon, found strange tracks, three-toed, eight inches across, and square at the head, pressed an inch and a half into the hard ground. Stan Lawson also noted how oddly the family dog was behaving. It cowered inside the doghouse all day, leaving it only at suppertime, when it bolted into the house and had to be dragged out. That night Lawson thought he heard large wings scraping across the bedroom window, but whatever caused the sound left no trace of its passing.

PETER IS COMING...
Location/Date: Mount Misery, Long Island, New York - May 18, 1967 - 10:30 am
The day after being instructed by a metallic sounding voice in her phone to go to the small local public library, Jane Paro did as she was instructed. The library was deserted except for the librarian, who struck Jane as being unusual. The woman was "dressed in an old fashioned suit...like something out of the 1940's with a long skirt, broad shoulders, and flat old looking shoes." She had a dark complexion, with a fine bone structure, and very black eyes and hair.
When Jane entered, the woman seemed to be expecting her and produced a book instantly from under the desk. Jane sat down at a table and began to riffle through the book, pausing on page 42. The metallic voice had told her to read that page. Suddenly the print became smaller and smaller, then larger and larger. It changed into a message about contact with earthlings. The print became very small again, and then the normal text reappeared. As soon as Jane left the library she became quite ill. In early June she began to see the "librarian" wherever she went.
Unable to sleep one night, Jane got up at the crack of dawn the following morning and went for a walk on an impulse. The dark skinned woman stepped out of an alley and approached her shyly. "Peter is coming," she announced. Jane asked her a question and she repeated, "Peter is coming very soon." Next a large black Cadillac came down the street and stopped next to them. It was brand new, very shiny, and polished. The driver was an olive skinned man wearing wraparound sunglasses and dressed in a neat gray suit, apparently of the same material as the woman's clothes. The rear door opened and a man climbed out with a big grin on his face. He was about five-feet 8 inches tall, with dark skin and Oriental eyes. He had an air of someone very important and was dressed in a well-cut, expensive looking suit of the same gray material that was shiny like silk but was not silk. The stranger said his name was "Apol."

ROCKY AND JELLYFISH
Location/Date: Tucson, Arizona - March 2005 - 3:00 am
After an argument with her boyfriend and after he angrily left the house the witness saw flashing blue lights outside of her house. She then walked into the living room and saw one large creature about 7 to 8 ft tall and three smaller creatures about 5 ft tall. All of the creatures had very large heads that she described as “rocky”. The tall creature was wearing a jump type suit and had a “jellyfish” type textured skin. She said that the creatures were humanoid-like (two eyes, two ears, bipedal etc, etc). She wasn’t too alarmed at first because she couldn’t believe her eyes and thought her two older boys (aged 19 and 21) were playing a joke on her. (Her boys were not living with her.) However, she soon realized that these were not “ordinary” people as they seemed to be blending in with the wall paneling and could actually walk through walls. Two other people were in the house at the time. (Her sister in law was sleeping on one of the couches in the living room and her 10-year old son was sleeping on the other couch in the living room.) Neither was awakened by the intrusion. She attempted several times to awake her sister-in-law to no avail. The tall creature shot at her with a device that shot out a liquid substance that solidified upon contact. She was not injured by this. The creatures were there for nearly two hours, but took no other hostile action.
She was understandably terrified by the experience and is undergoing treatment by a psychiatrist due to the resulting trauma. She attempted to report the incident to the University of Arizona, but they wouldn’t return her phone calls. She has not told her psychiatrist details about the incident. Her boyfriend is also somewhat traumatized but does not recall any details after he left the house that morning. She said that one of the trees in the front yard had sustained some damage. She noticed this right after the incident.

INTO THE SMOKE
Location/Date: Near Deming, New Mexico - April 12 1992 - 11:20 pm
The witness was driving on US 180 along the desert and was listening to his CB radio when the radio suddenly went silent and he vaguely noticed a patch of white light shining on a rise over the left side of the road. He then heard a voice in his head telling him to "watch out for the smoke." Thinking it had been the CB radio he replied but there was no answer. Suddenly what looked like a huge luminous cloud of smoke began stretching across the highway ahead, it formed a solid curtain across the road.
The witness drove into the grayish-white vapor for an hour. He stopped his vehicle and walked across the road and into a ditch but was still unable to see anything. He suddenly went into a state of paralysis and sensed the approach of two persons. Each person got on either side of the witness and placed a firm grip on his forearms. The beings had long bony fingers. He was then led to a shiny metallic object, shaped like a flattened arch with rounded ends. A rectangular opening appeared on the side of the craft. Next he remembers sitting back on a chair inside the object feeling dizzy and numb. He was briefly alone then two beings entered the room. One being was a male with a round oval face with two large oval black eyes. He was five-foot tall with a thin torso and limbs. The second being was a female, similar to the male being. The witness was then led to a dimly lit room and placed in a reclining position on a chair. He felt a buzzing stimulating sensation on his facial area and felt as if a small object was being introduced into his nose. He was then released and let outside and floated horizontally towards his vehicle. He resumed the drive and the vapor-like fog quickly dissipated.
