Recently Reported 'Close Encounters'

There as been an influx of close encounters reported lately. Here are a few:

Woke to Strange Marks

Boise, Idaho - 2018-11-07: Fell asleep around 11:30pm in my recliner watching TV. I woke up at 1:30am to move to the bedroom and upon relieving myself in the bathroom noticed these scratches. They are very orderly, evenly spaced and run from my arm down to my hip. While they look and feel like scratches, with some of the dots being deep enough to form scabs, the bottom along the hip has perpendicular marks. There is nothing in my house that could have caused this by accidentally running into it. They could be burn marks as well. It’s hard to tell. My wife has no idea what this could be and we are both very baffled by what could have caused this.

Now 3 days after the incident the wounds are very likely burn marks as the marks have not faded. I have also spent quite a bit of effort looking over my entire property for any grill or grate that could have made this but have not been able to find anything that would match the pattern. - MUFON


Chased by 2 Beings

Buckie (UK/Scotland) - 11/26/2018 02:00: I was walking home during my night walk with my dog. I heard a commotion in the tree line and what I saw was 2 things arguing in the clearing. They were about 3 to 4 feet tall. At first I thought it was children but not at this time in the woods. They saw me and then they shown a really bright light towards me. I ran, then I heard them. I never believed in UFOs. - NUFORC


Experiences Driving Me Crazy!

Indiana - 2018-11-26: The thing about getting abducted is your made to forget! I've been abducted a few times and my mental state will never be the same again. Even though they make you forget about it, a part in your brain still remembers and I have the worst nightmares that you can think off. I hear super high pitched ringing in my ears all the time. I wasn't scared of much, but know the slightest 'bam' makes me jump.

The last time I was abducted was this last Thanksgiving. My family, some of my cousins and I go up to my grandparent's house in Indiana for Thanksgiving. My grandparents live in the country, in the middle of nowhere by the Wabash River in Indiana and one night one of my cousins and I go for a walk to look at the stars. We see like 3 small stars. like balls of light through the tree across the river on the other side and we don't find out until later that there's nothing but woods over there. No houses or anything. The lights are flashing white and red and they're moving in like a circle. So I know it wasn't a plane or anything and the lights were like eye level with us. We go inside and all of a sudden a super bright light comes in from all of the windows in the house, but somehow it seems to be coming from the sky. After that I don't remember much of what happened after that, except this one memory that I have of people screaming in the dark, but it's not dark and me not knowing were I am.

The next morning I woke up only in my underwear and I always sleep with a shirt on, and I had 3 marks on my left shoulder/arm that I don't have a pic of and another mark on the exact opposite side of my heart on my chest. The mark is like 3 centimeters tall and 4 wide and it's almost like a red circle. Right after we left, my grandpa had this huge purple/green/yellow bruise on his arm. He went to the doctor and no one knows were it came from. If someone is reading this I just want to say thank you for taking your time reading this story. I just feel like everyone thinks I'm crazy, but I just can't stop thinking about this and its driving me crazy! MUFON


I've Made Contact

Tatamagouche, NS, Canada - 2018-12-10 - 03:00: Was out in the garage, playing a game, smoking some cigarettes just doing my thing. The truth is I just felt off. Had to get some air. I was standing there when I noticed this light getting closer. Fast. But it was far and I just looked at my phone and looked back and it wasn’t more than a mile out. Sitting there. In seconds, without making a noise, it showed up. Landed.

At this point I felt like I was dreaming. I was thinking things like words that I didn’t understand. But then it starts to come together in weird radio, song, tv, voices. Like little sections of them in my head making sentences. But I was so confused at what I was seeing I never picture this was real. And then, one came out. Followed by a second slightly taller one, and they motioned for me to come here with their minds, is the only way to explain it. As I got closer, my knees and elbows started to get weak and stiff. And I blacked out. Woke up on the lawn. I don’t know what to do. Who should I tell. No one is going to believe me. I live in a small country town. This can’t be. - MUFON


Little Green Aliens

Quebec, Canada - 2018-11-23 - 04:15: At the moment I was sleeping and felt like I woke up and saw green little aliens (as witnessed by the media) however they looked friendly and were not there to harm me but study me and make me more intelligent. Their research of study was about electromagnetic colors' cause & effect on human brain & emotion. One of the aliens put a type of satellite looking crown on the head meanwhile others aliens were collecting notes and with his digital fingers was pushing every button of each color spectrum on it and saw the color red (bright light like a radar) was best match as to fit a profile of a joyous state in my emotional brain. He took off with his crew in satellite.

As soon as I woke up I felt smarter and the evidence is some work online. I can do a more rapid research and I have more interest and understanding in the sciences like in stem cells.

I do not know if I have been abducted or invaded. I felt I was in my room but my room looked exactly like a surgical room of the hospital unit and in an alien movie. I research forums where people write about their experiences of extraterrestrials and now I know why there are so many movies out there and why they are so popular.

I have seen some green monitor outside my house in the sky; like reporting on the news. I have seen an alien in my dream before in human form as a college librarian, assembling the papers of my research. - MUFON

NOTE: I don't know if this is related to David Eckhart and my other current experiencer case in any way, but there has been a noticeable increase of close encounter reports at the reporting agencies recently. Lon

Red Eyes in the Desert

Somewhere near Presidio, Texas, USA. Jack in Texas called in to tell of a strange experience a co-worker had:

“Back in 1979, we owned a ranch that was about 70 or 80 miles away from Abilene. I was living on the ranch at that time. We had a documented worker who was in a very remote area in Mexico. He was very much out in the middle of nowhere to start with, no transportation so he had to walk 30 miles to get close to Presidio and we could go pick him up at the border. Presidio being not too far away from the Marfa Lights, but this area he was walking through was very much desert terrain and I remember, it was in December, around the holiday time, the weather was not cold. It was kind of hot. He was having to walk. He walked at night because it was so hot during the day and he was telling me this story.

We were building a fence and we were just talking and everything and he was telling me about, well, I asked him about Chupacabra and he's talking and he said, 'One time,' he was telling me in Spanish, 'One time, I was walking,' and he said, 'a strange person came, appeared out of nowhere.' and he said, 'there was a little bit of moonlight, he could see where he was going.' He was trying his best to describe this guy, he said, talking about his... I said, 'What did he wear?' And he was trying to tell me what the guy had on. He said, 'I couldn't see his face. He had something over his head.' I said, 'Was it a sombrero?' He said, 'No.' It turned out, he described, it was a hoodie. But that was, gosh, that was a long time ago. Hoodies were still popular, but, he was telling me about this person, he was hard to understand, he was telling me in Spanish, and he asked him, he told him in Spanish, 'Is it time for your food?' And he said, 'I thought that was weird because, you know, when somebody wanted food they'd say, Can I have some of your food or something like that? And I kind of related to what you were talking about awhile ago (David Weatherly, the guest, earlier in the show, described a BEK account in which a black eyed kid asked a man if it was 'food time').

He was religious man, he was very very scared. He started crying. And he was telling me about this, and he was describing this person and he said, 'It's time for your food?' and Miguel just kind of, he didn't know what to do. Then he said his eyes turned to red. You gotta remember, this was 2 or 3 in the morning and nobody was around for 15 or 20 miles, so. No towns or anything close. And Miguel said he was so scared, he dropped to his knees when this person, or whatever it was, had red eyes, all he could see was the red eyes and he started praying and he kept praying and praying and he was crying and everything. He was crying when he was telling this story. I said, 'Miguel, it's okay' and he said he needed to talk about it. He had held it in for a long time. And he prayed, prayed, prayed, he said it seemed like for 15 minutes and when he looked up, the guy, the person, was gone. And I told him myself, 'That's a strange deal.'”

Upright 'White Monster' Encountered in Rural Missouri

I recently came across the following account:

I just went to my high school reunion and chatted with my old neighbor and best friend Ash. She said 'do you remember that pig-faced monster we saw?' I looked at her with shock as the horrible memory flooded back. I must have been so terrified I blocked it out but. Oh yes...I remember.

We used to live on a secluded dirt road, well, in the middle of a 40 acre plot away from the road. Our property joined a huge state park at the back, 25 miles from the nearest town in Missouri. We were about 13, so around 2003.

We were babysitting our younger siblings so it was us and 4 younger ones. Our parents were out for the night. Obviously we were no strangers to the woods. We knew the whole property well and would even walk the 2 miles between our houses. Free range kids.

So it's way past dark, but we have a pole light by the house. It's summer so it feels great outside. We were all playing tag or hide and seek, running around. I ran around the corner of my house and I saw something white, like a flash, run behind the propane tank, then the wellhouse. Our backyard was clear beside the small wellhouse and propane tank, the woods are probably 150 yards away, so not alot of places for an animal to hide. Ash saw it too. The kids are still playing and we thought it was a stray dog, even though this thing was crazy fast, way faster than a dog. Up until that point we had no reason to fear anything in the woods, we don't have large predators. So we're like 'oh poor dog...let's check it out.' We sprint over around the wellhouse and see a crouched white thing. I remember it's hands were long fingered HANDS. It was matted and dirty, smelled like death and sh*t. My mind couldn't quite even comprehend it's face but it had like a long kinda upturned nose and no hair on its a snarling dog pig. I don't really remember the eyes but I think they were black and yellow, all I know is they looked evil and inspired fear I hadn't known.

At that moment we screamed and ran, and the thing dashed off into the woods as I looked over my shoulder. The kids hear us scream and know something is wrong. We scream at them to get in the house and we lock the doors. I couldn't keep my eyes off the back windows, like I didn't want to see it but I had kids to protect so I felt like I needed to know if it was there. We were just scared, pumped with adrenaline and couldn't even speak about it. We got the kids calmed down and to bed finally, and I talked with Ash and she saw the same thing I did. My parents got home and we broke down freaking out, crying, pointing at the wellhouse. My step-dad even went out there with a gun we were so adamant. They told us it was probably a feral hog and we were just tired or something. We didn't tell anyone at school and never brought it up again.

After the reunion I ask my brother who is six years younger than me so he was about 7, if he remembered that night we saw a monster at mom's old house. He said no and I started talking about how I forgot about it until Ash brought it up and about how we saw something run behind the wellhouse. He interrupts me and asks 'was it white?' I say 'yeah', he asks 'did it have a face like a weird dog?' I nod. His eyes get big and he basically starts yelling 'Omg, I saw that thing down the road from there a few years ago!' And freaking out, visible goosebumps on his arms.

He says he was driving the dirt road with his girlfriend at the time, hauling ass like always but on the really rocky patches he would hit the brakes and drive slow over the rocks. He saw something in his headlights standing about ten feet from the ditch, so still he thought someone put a weird statue out there, but it's eyes followed him and its face was sweaty. It was white but muddy, had a dog face and long fingered hands, and stood on two legs at least 6 feet tall. It's eyes followed him as he passed it and he looked in the rear view mirror and saw it dash away into the trees. He asked his girlfriend if she saw it and she just nodded. They never spoke of it again and he never told anybody. He said he kinda blocked it out until I brought up the monster at moms.

I did stop playing in the woods after that day in 03, started doing sports and teenager things. Ash stopped walking to my house and we grew apart. Now my brother and I are creeped out as hell. I need to call my mom. - IGTF
