Perm Region, Russia - July 19 1989 - late night
As the witness slept in her apartment she suddenly awoke feeling a strange oppressive atmosphere around her. She opened her eyes and saw a humanoid figure bending down over her. The figure was short, about 130cm, and looked intently at the witness. The figure had a grayish green pale facial complexion. It had large dark pupil less eyes. Heavy skin folds covered the head and body of the creature. It had what appeared to be a thin beard and appeared to be elderly. A second humanoid now appeared next to the first one. This one was somewhat shorter and appeared younger, both resembled aged “gnomes”. Both figures then floated back from the bed and vanished. At this point what appeared to be a tennis ball size sphere of light appeared in their place. The sphere disappeared into the next room and then flew out an opened window.

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma - Summer 1967 - 2:00 am
The witness had gone outside to lie down on the grass & look at the star-filled sky, when he noticed three odd looking green lights arranged in an equilateral triangle, hovering high above the area. He began concentrating his thoughts towards the lights, thinking about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Suddenly one of the lights shot away from the formation & began moving closer to the witness.
The object, which now appeared to be saucer shaped, with its bottom spinning and red lights on top & green lights on the bottom, hovered briefly above the witness, then landed behind a nearby church. Soon, a humanoid figure at least 12-feet tall appeared. The figure was accompanied by an odd looking animal described as a cross between an ostrich and a buzzard. The giant humanoid was dressed all in black, with arms and legs in proportion to a human. Its head was like a large dome, with no visible facial features. The being could apparently read the witness's thoughts & answered some of the witness questions by nodding his head. He claimed to be from a planet within our galaxy & that it was looking for a place to raise their "livestock." Soon the being & the strange bird-like animal re-entered the craft, which then shot up to join the other two. Then all three shot out into space and vanished.

Tujunga Canyon, California - March 22, 1953 - 2:00 am
Sarah Shaw & Jan Whitley were staying in a remote cabin when they woke to find all sounds outside had ceased and a blue-white light moving outside casting shadows across the walls. Jan got out of bed then felt a headache and a sense of coldness. A sensation of giddiness and confusion overcame both women whose conscious memory then lapsed until 4:20 am.
Under hypnosis Sarah recalled that several beings approached the cabin and passed through a closed window and the kitchen door. Eight shadowy beings entered the cabin and placed their hands on the two women and apparently took control over them. The beings were humanoids of slender build, with narrow shoulders and long arms. Their skin felt dry and cold. Their faces were oval and hairless, featureless except for the eyes, which were narrow and long and appeared covered with a membrane. A ski mask seemed to cover their faces, leaving holes for the eyes. They also wore black skintight coveralls, mittens, and boots. Most of the beings were 5-feet tall and most of these had oval heads. Some had heads wider at the bottom that at the top and were apparently female. Two taller beings appeared to be the leaders.
The beings took both women into a hovering Saturn-shaped craft, with a rim or platform around it. It glowed with various colors and made a whining sound. Sarah felt herself floating into the craft on a beam of light. She felt tranquil, unafraid and even enjoyed the experience. But Jan resisted the beings and she was rendered unconscious by an injection and was carried inside. In a large domed room both women were then extensively examined and scanned. Throughout the examination a tall being directed the work from a balcony-like extension on a wall. He wore a light colored suit with black stripes and his hands were bare, showing gray flesh.

Williams Air Force Base, Arizona - January 1976 - late night
A security guard finishing his rounds encountered a huge brilliant red light hovering above some trees near a construction site. As he approached the site to investigate he was able to see a large hovering saucer shaped object with a hump on its center bottom section. It was surrounded by red light. As the witness moved closer to the object he heard a low whirring sound and the object descended and landed on a tripod like gear. A stairway like protrusion descended towards the ground. Then a figure appeared and began to climb down to the ground. The humanoid was described as eight-foot tall, with long dangling arms a huge torso and two stump like legs. His face was long and oval shaped, it had two large tear shaped eyes. The witness felt paralyzed as the creature began moving towards him using high loping steps. The witness felt a strong humming inside his skull and smelled an odor resembling rotten eggs. Moments later on the road behind him a car went by, this apparently caused the creature to walk back and board the object which then lifted off at high speed and disappeared.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - January 1999 - late night
Eva Trent had fallen asleep when she awoke to a buzzing sound. Opening her eyes she was horrified to find two strange creatures standing on either side of her bed. The entity to her right was about 7-8-feet tall, weighed about 300 pounds, had apparently no clothing and seemed to have either crocodile or snake type skin. The creature to her left was identical in appearance but smaller in height and weight. They seemed to be communicating in a chirping manner. Each of the entities eyes glowed. Eva quickly discovered that she was unable to move. As she stared at the two creatures she found that either one or both were giving her instructions telepathically. The nature of this was seemingly for her to create mentally visual scenes of various kinds and then “they” proceeded to distort that particular pleasant scene in a perverse manner. Apparently the creatures were intent not only to observe her emotional reaction, but also possibly to feed off the energy that was produced. After awhile Eva began to mentally resist the mind manipulation and began to pray earnestly. A short time later she fell back to sleep. The next morning the witness found 5 of her music tapes grossly distorted as if extreme heat had been applied. However no evidence of fire or odor was present.
