The Elizabeth Lake Devil

The legend states that the Devil created the Elizabeth Lake and placed one of his own pets inside it. If you swim deep enough, eventually you will find a secret passage direct to the underworld which isn't entirely far fetched, as the lake lies directly over the San Andres fault line. From this lake a horrible monster came to be.

The following is a short mention of the legend in the Los Angeles Daily News:

It was once named La Laguna de Diablo because early settlers thought a monster lurked inside its watery depths.

But Los Angeles County's largest natural lake, Elizabeth Lake in the Antelope Valley, is now considered heaven by nature lovers, who are attracted by its inherent beauty and its scores of animal and bird species.....

The lake's modern history dates back to the early days of California's founding.

In 1780, Father Junipero Serra named it La Laguna de Diablo because those who lived near the lake formed by the San Andreas Fault believed it contained the devil's pet.

In the late 1800s, Tiburcio Vasquez and other Banditos used the lake as a hideout for their stolen cattle and horses.

It was later named Elizabeth Lake for a young girl who lived nearby and slipped in to the water. She wasn't hurt, but friends dubbed it in her honor as a joke and the name stuck.

And just in case the legend of the Elizabeth Lake monster might scare away any potential buyers, Walker said the last reports of the monster's appearance were in the late 1800s, when several men claimed they witnessed the ascension of a huge monster with bat-like wings from the lake.

"Of course, this is all legend and folklore," Walker said. "Here, we don't think about it. Most people don't even know about it. It's just an old story." - DailyNews - Los Angeles, CA

The Tombstone Thunderbird

There have been no reported sightings since the 1880's, but there were a few between 1830-1886. The creature has been described as having bat wings, the neck of a giraffe, the head of a bulldog, six legs, a length of at least fifty feet, and emit a horrible nauseating stench. Several ranchers and owners of land around Elizabeth Lake abandoned or sold their property at losses to get away from the beast. Supposedly Spanish missionaries dubbed the lake Laguna del Diablo and Indian legend also supports the rumors that the Devil created the lake.

The first recorded sighting was by a Spaniard Don Pedro Carillo in the 1830's. He built a ranch on the shores of the lake, but one day a fire of unknown origin burnt every single structure down all in a single night. In the 1850's, American settlers tried to establish themselves near the lake, but screams at night, unnatural noises, visions, and other experiences that they would not relate drove them away.

A few years later Don Chico Lopez and Don Chico Vasquez established a ranch along the lake and for several months everything was fine. Then the workers reported livestock and animals disappearing. This was followed by a giant winged shadow passing over every night. Soon the residents had multiple sightings of the beast. Bullets reportedly bounced off the creature's hide. As ranch hands quit, and animals kept disappearing, the owners were forced to sell. The land was eventually sold and the ranch abandoned.

Several months after Miguel Leonis, a burly Basque immigrant, purchased the ranch on Elizabeth Lake, the creature began eating his animals as well. But Leonis would not have it. He lay in wait for the beast and then savagely attacked it when it emerged at night. As bullets bounced off its tough hide, he engaged it closer, beating it with his rifle butt across the nose and then punching it in the eye. The creature supposedly retreated back to the lake and eventually fled to Arizona.

The creature was later linked to the area around Tombstone, Arizona. A photograph was presumably taken in the early 1890s of several cowboys and ranchers holding up what appears to be a pterodactyl. The beast was apparently seen flying in the area, and was lured by some ranchers into a trap in the Huachuca Mountains, west of Tombstone, where they killed the creature. Some stories link the monster of Elizabeth Lake to the monster in the old picture of the pterodactyl, stating that they are the same creature. The picture apparently appeared in the Tombstone Epitaph though the original photograph disappeared.

Elizabeth Lake has mostly been quiet since the encounter with Miguel Leonis. There has been a lot of speculation if the creature ever existed at Elizabeth Lake...but there is little doubt that several Spanish dons, settlers, and western ranchers avoided the location, even though it was some of the most fertile land in the area.

NOTE: The spirits of Miguel Leonis and his wife are said to haunt their historic adobe. You can read about it at Miguel Leonis Adobe and Leonis Adobe Museum.

There is another great source on these sightings at American Dragons of the West. In my opinion, the Elizabeth Lake sightings may have been something other than a flesh and blood creature. Some of the Ancient Alien and Hollow Earth mysteries included encounters with large birds that seemed indestructible....bullets would bounce off the surface. Some of the large birds would spew fire and projectiles, as well as latch onto people and livestock from a fair distance above. I know is sounds similar to the film Cowboys & Aliens - but then again...maybe this legend is where the story line came from. Lon

Just the Facts?: Sea Level Rise Accelerated in Eastern US -- New Species of Lion -- Iceberg That Sank RMS Titanic

‘Hotspot’ Causing Sea Level Rise Acceleration In Eastern US

The sea level of the eastern coast of the United States is accelerating at a much faster rate than the country’s other coasts due to global warming, claim researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

According to Damian Carrington, a reporter with the UK newspaper The Guardian, the sea level rise of the “densely populated” Atlantic coast from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to Boston, Massachusetts is increasing at a rate three to four times faster than the rest of the country’s coastal regions.

Likewise, the Associated Press (AP) said, the 600-mile area, which the USGS researchers dub a “hot spot” because of the sea levels, have been rising at a rate up to 400% faster than the global average.

Among the fastest-rising areas are Norfolk, Virginia, where the sea level has increased approximately five inches since 1990, and Philadelphia, which has seen a four-inch rise.

“Many people mistakenly think that the rate of sea level rise is the same everywhere as glaciers and ice caps melt, increasing the volume of ocean water, but other effects can be as large or larger than the so-called ‘eustatic’ rise,” USGS Director Marcia McNutt said in a statement. “As demonstrated in this study, regional oceanographic contributions must be taken into account in planning for what happens to coastal property.”

“Cities in the hotspot, like Norfolk, New York, and Boston already experience damaging floods during relatively low intensity storms,” added Dr. Asbury Sallenger, a USGS oceanographer and the head of the study, which is the subject of a paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change. “Ongoing accelerated sea level rise in the hotspot will make coastal cities and surrounding areas increasingly vulnerable to flooding by adding to the height that storm surge and breaking waves reach on the coast.”

While Sallenger told Carrington that this hotspot affect had previously been predicted through computer modeling, the USGS study is the first to use real data to prove that the sea-level acceleration is currently occurring and that scientists can currently detect and monitor it.

The cause, he said, is the warming of dense Arctic water, causing it to sink more slowly and leveling out the so-called “slope” from the fastest-moving water in the mid-Atlantic to the east coast of America. As a result, the sea level in that location increases, and could ultimately add as much as 30% to the global sea level rise.

“We came up with a very clear correlation between the acceleration of sea level rise and rising temperature in the hotspot area. That suggests to me that as long as temperature continues to rise the hotspot will continue to grow,” Sallenger told the Guardian on Sunday. - RedOrbit

New species of lion discovered at Ethiopian zoo

Naturalists in Africa have long noted that some lions in Ethiopia look a bit different than regular lions, mostly on account of a dark mane that extends from the head, neck, and chest to the belly. They're also smaller and more compact. It wasn't known, however, if they represented a distinct species. But now, a genetic analysis conducted on a group of these lions found only at the Addis Ababa zoo has shown that they are in fact a genetically distinct species — a discovery that has prompted immediate conservation action to preserve them in the wild.

The researchers, an international team led by the University of York, UK, and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany, compared DNA samples from 15 Addis Ababa zoo lions (eight males and seven females) to breeds found in the wild (six distinct wild groups). Analysis of both the microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA indicated that the zoo lions are genetically distinct compared to their wild brethren.

Consequently, the researchers have declared the lions to be a distinct species. They are urging immediate conservation management actions, including a captive breeding program. The researchers also note that their examination of the genetic diversity of the captive lions showed little effect of inbreeding — which is a good sign.

Unfortunately, the males at the zoo are the only lions known to exist who possess the distinctive mane — a possible indication that the Addis Ababa lion won't be found in the wild. But there is still hope. Wildlife Extra elaborates:

It has previously been suggested that no lions comparable to those at Addis Ababa Zoo still exist in the wild, mainly due to hunting for their mane. However, the researchers say that according to the Ethiopian authorities, lions with a similar appearance to those at Addis Ababa Zoo still exist in the east and north-east of the country, notably in the Babille Elephant Sanctuary near Harar and southwards to Hararghe. These regions, the researchers say, should be prioritised for field surveys.

Professor Hofreiter said: "A key question is which wild population did the zoo lions originate from and whether this wild population still exists; this would obviously make it a priority for conservation. What is clear is that these lions did not originate in the zoo, but come from somewhere in the wild - but not from any of the populations for which comparative data is available." - io9


Aussie police use crematorium to dispose of cannabis

The Environment Protection Authority in Australia is investigating police use of a crematorium to destroy drugs. Police use the Forest Lawn Memorial Park crematorium in Leppington, New South Wales to destroy drugs up to 10 times a year.

Forest Lawn communications manager Karl Wolfenden said both Green Valley and Liverpool police commands had used the facility to destroy illicit substances such as cannabis "for years". "We respond when needed," he said. Police requests are recorded but no fee is charged.

"Each time, the burns have been conducted by police, not Forest Lawn staff, and there are several officers there to supervise," Mr Wolfenden said. "We don't touch the evidence bags or see them opened before they are destroyed." He said news the Environment Protection Authority was investigating the practice came as a surprise.

"We thought we were helping law enforcement and the community," he said. A police spokeswoman said the drugs were destroyed at the crematorium "based on advice that the location was an approved facility". An EPA spokeswoman confirmed police use of crematoriums was being investigated. - Liverpool Leader


The only known photo of the iceberg that sank the Titanic is up for sale

Good news for people who don’t like their money: The only known photograph taken of the iceberg that sank the Titanic is going up for auction — and it’s expected to fetch over $10,000.

The photo, which has the imaginative title “The Iceberg that Sunk Titanic,” is being sold by American auction house RR Auction. It’s a 9.75×8-inch photograph taken by Captain W. F. Wood, who was onboard the ship S. S. Etonian at the time. A handwritten note on the front of the photo reads:

Copyright. Blueberg taken by Captain W. F. Wood S. S. Etonian on 12/4/12 in Lat 41° 50 N Long 49° 50 W. Titanic struck 14/4/12 and sank in three hours.

According to PetaPixel, there are a number of reasons that have led experts to believe that the photo is legit.

First, it was captured at a location 2-3 days (in iceberg floating time) from where the ship sank. Second, the shape of the iceberg matches the sketches offered by eyewitnesses who survived the disaster, including the lookout who first spotted the ice in the horizon.

Finally, the iceberg’s shape resembles another photo (seen in the 1976 book A Night to Remember) taken from a ship named Prinz Adalbert, which was present in the area during the day after the sinking.

RR Auction notes that the difference in appearance between the two icebergs may be “attributable to the angle of the photographer and the aftermath of impact,” and that all these reasons taken together have allowed “noted Titanic experts to establish this photograph as capturing the iceberg everyone has been talking about for the past century.”

The auction ends on December 16, 2012, so you still have time to add this to your collection. Also be sure to check out the unseen photos from the sinking of the Titanic that only emerged recently. - io9

Humanoid Reports & Other Encounters / 2010 - August 2012: Part 4

The following article was forwarded by long-time humanoid researcher and colleague Albert S. Rosales. The full narrative will be presented in four parts...enjoy!


“Incredible accounts….by seemingly credible persons.” - Dr. J. Allen Hynek (1972)

Many cases from 2010 and 2011 are summarized in the issues of THE JOURNAL OF HUMANOID STUDIES and will not be duplicated here. After a busy 2011, 2012 has proven to be a most interesting year so far with numerous assorted encounters and cases, are we building up for something? Is this our last year to learn our real place in the cosmos? I suspect it will be my last year for collecting cases and I will start work in other projects. (All the available issues of the Journal of Humanoid Studies can be downloaded for free from the UFOINFO site).

August 2012 - parts unknown



2012 Humanoid encounters and other high strangeness events. So far a very interesting year with many encounters far and wide. This will be my last year of collecting humanoid case summaries. Something or someone is trying to tell us that we are not the kings of the Universe - that we are not at the top of the food chain. There are OTHERS amongst us - perhaps they have been with us forever.

Location. Beijing, China
Date: January 1 2012 Time: daytime
A man named Li Xiu Ying was staying in a hotel room in the city of Beijing when he spotted a UFO from his window. This incredible unidentified flying object was not your typical UFO; it appeared to be an alien or humanoid figure drifting slowly and calmly through the air above the tall building. The witness grabbed his camera to record the UFO after noticing something “peculiar”. Peculiar indeed---the New Year’s Day video shows what appears to be a human-like figure clad in some sort of strange yellow jumpsuit. It is fortunate that Li Xiu was able to capture the object on camera because he reported that he was unable to spot it through the viewfinder of his camera.
Li Xiu Ying described the sighting: “It literally looked like a large man floating through the sky.” The UFO is obviously not some type of alien spacecraft, nor is a little gray alien, an orb, a flying saucer, parachute, bird, plane, helicopter or insect.

The witness, Ruben, was out walking his dog in this wooded area and at one point decided to let him loose so he could run freely. Strangely the dog remained sitting on the grass as if ‘waiting for something to happen’. Somewhat perplexed Ruben looked up and saw something moving within the nearby brush. He described a dark gray colored humanoid that was floating just above the ground and moving in a horizontal position. The humanoid’s body was very thin and ‘long’. It was very tall and was now blocking the path in which Ruben had been walking his dog. Ruben could not remember seeing any facial features on the humanoid even though it remained facing in his direction. The humanoid crossed the path to the other side into an agricultural field next to the path. The witness also noticed what appeared to be the lights of a car at the far end of the path which suddenly began rising into the air and dimming its brightness. At this time the witness suddenly felt strong fear and returned to his home somewhat confused. Once he arrived at the house his dog became nervous and began scratching the door wanting to be let in.

Location. North Carolina (exact location not given)
Date: February 6 2012 Time: late night
The main witness, Rose (involved in previous encounters) and her husband had gone up to bed around 11 pm when she awoke in the night to movement on the bed like someone lying down alongside her to her left. Her husband was fast asleep on her right. She felt that it was the ghost of one of her daughters, who had sadly died in an accident a number of years before. In life they used to sometimes come into the bedroom and get in alongside her, so she assumed it was one of them come to visit her.
Without looking, Rose reached her hand across and put it on the arm of the figure. However when she did so it felt strange to her, like “silk wrapped around a stick”, she moved her arm down to the hand. The fingers felt very odd to her, they did not end where they should have, and they seemed too long and thin. Rose sat up in bed and put her hand on the leg, which again felt strange. At this moment she opened her eyes. She immediately saw three strange skinny beings standing alongside the bed reaching out for her. They were all the same height, about 4 feet tall. They were unclothed and had a pale yellowish-gray colored skin. They had oversized heads with large black almond-shaped eyes. Their noses were not well pronounced, just a couple of small nostrils. Their mouths were thin open holes with no distinguishable tips. Their faces looked smooth, but there were visible wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. The beings were staring intensely at her.
She was also aware that a fourth being was lying down on the bed next to her and this is what she had touched. Even though she did not look at it directly, she for some reason sensed that it was smiling at her, as though it had played a joke on her. The being’s in Rose’s room were ‘Grays’ one of the most commonly reported alien species. Although Rose had read about contact experiences before she had not seen any pictures which matched up with these creatures, so did not really recognized them as this at the time, she was terrified by the sight of them. Before she had time to react or call out, they reached out for her. Rose tried to push them away but they grabbed hold of her and put some kind of stick into her mouth. She bit down on this and then felt herself black out. When she came around she found herself sitting on the bed. There was no longer a being lying alongside her. There were again three grays alongside the bed, but this time they were joined by another very short being. It was about 3 feet high and was wearing red-brown colored robes with a hood. It had a pig-like face with dark red colored round eyes and a wide mouth filled with white teeth. Its face looked motionless like it was fixed in a permanent expression. Rose was already pushing out at them screaming, “Get out! Get out!” Beyond the beings should have been the patio door, which is around 5 feet from the edge of the bed. But instead it looked like a dark veil made from some kind of energy. She did not touch the beings as they were backing away from her when she came around. They appeared to be floating backwards rather than stepping back. The ‘Gray’ on the left followed by other two Grays leaving just the very short being staring up at her, then Rose saw one of the Grays poke its head back into the room and appear to call for the short creature, although no noise could be heard. The short being then also moved backwards into the darkness, as this happened the energy seemed to fade away and the room returned to normal.
Rose sat up on the side of the bed and tried to make sense of what had just happened. Initially she put it down to a strangely vivid nightmare. She was breathing heavily and felt nauseous. She got up and went to the bathroom, before returning and lying down on the bed. As she put it down to a bad dream, she did not wake her husband up, who had slept soundly through the whole incident. She cleared her mind of what had happened and after a while dropped back off to sleep. In the morning she still felt very nauseous and very tired, and this feeling lasted for 30-45 minutes. She didn’t relate this directly to what had happened in the night as she just put it down to a bad dream. However in the days following the incident she began to wonder if it had not been a dream but had really taken place. Shortly after seeing the Grays in her bedroom, Rose began to hear a voice inside her mind from time to time. This voice would come to her randomly, usually during the day. She did not hear it audibly; it would appear as a sudden clear thought in her mind asking her particular questions---“Can we come to visit you?” “Will you let us come?” “When can we come?”

A chemical worker, Leonardo, who lives in Codroipo, was returning from Palmanova to Codroipo late at night when he arrived at the new roundabout at Mortegliano. There were several cars parked there. The young man exited his vehicle and saw a strange creature walking along the road. The creature was very tall, perhaps close to four meters in height (11 feet). The witness grabbed a flashlight and shone it on the creature he saw the back of the creature and noticed on the back of its legs what resembled ‘a tangle of tendons’. His head had a rounded shape and cone-shaped on top. He tried to use his cell phone to call and take pictures but it was useless. The creature walked down the street oblivious of the cars. The witness saw a car with a family in which the mother was trying to conceal her two children from the creature. The creature eventually disappeared into the darkness.

Scott Martin and his family were traveling home by taxi on Tuesday, when they saw a terrifying figure they have likened to the legendary Spring Heeled Jack dart across the road before leaping 15ft over a bank as they approached Nescot College on the Ewell bypass. Also, a couple, an accountant and a manager of a building company from Banstead, their four year old son reported seeing the same figure. So spooked were the family that their son was too scared to sleep on his own that night while the taxi driver admitted he didn’t want to drive back alone.

The witness was standing at the back of her deck, which is 12 plus feet off the ground at the back of the house. It is a wrap around the house deck, ending on each side at the carport. It was early in the morning and she had just taken her daughter to the bus for school and had just returned. She always made a cup of coffee and go out on the deck when the mornings are nice. The weather was abnormally calm and warm.
While standing on the far left of the deck, leaning on the railings she felt someone to the right of her. Her husband hadn’t left for work yet, so she wasn’t frightened. When she turned her head to look, this human-shaped solid black---very dark black, being was standing on the other side of her deck. It was turned towards the field, leaning on the railings, and seemed to be looking into the field. The witness was speechless, but not scared. When it turned its head to look at her it began slowly moving backwards. The legs moved as if it were walking backwards, yet it was floating very slowly with cat-like movements, like when a cat ‘is stalking its prey’. The being disappeared behind that side of the house as the witness stood on the deck dumbfounded not knowing what to do. Then it peeked half its body back around and stared at her for a moment.
When it left this time, also slow, it dragged its hand across the wood. The black hand was the last she saw of the being. She ran to the front of the deck, across the carport and looked, but there was nothing there. According to the witness, when the figure was moving she felt a very ‘calm warm feeling’. Then she actually felt guilty because ‘she had interrupted this being’s peaceful morning’. Nothing was said but she got the feeling that it relayed a message, “I am not going to hurt you today, but I could if I wanted to.” So the witness is now actually terrified to be outside after dark alone and she keeps every light on all the time.
The being was so dark black that there was a huge contract between it and the morning light on the deck. There were no facial features at all. The witness is convinced that it was not a human she saw. That same evening presented the most amazing lightning storms that she had ever seen in that area. She thinks that there is a connection.
Several days earlier her daughter and the witness did see what looked like a huge meteorite or “falling star”. It fell from west to east.

Location. Fayette County, Pennsylvania
Date: March 18 2012 Time: 23:45
In the southern part of Fayette County, a man was walking his dog in a rural location. He was in the front yard and away from any lights when his attention was drawn to look upwards after hearing a whooshing sound coming from overhead. Flying above him at a distance of about 55 feet was a large flying creature that “looked like a dragon”. As the flying creature passed over an automatic dusk to dawn light, the witness was able to get a good look at the strange flying animal. The body was about 22 feet long with a wingspan of about 18 feet wide, and looked to be shiny with almost a reflective body with no scales. The color was dark, possibly brown and red, similar to auburn brown. At the end tip of the wings there appeared to be talon-like fingers about 3 to 4 in number. The arms of the wing structure appeared muscular. The wings were quite thick, not like skin. There appeared to be a rear fin on both sides of its body, and the creature displayed an arrowhead shaped tail. The witness also saw what appeared to be two extended rear legs. The creature had a cone shape around the head and it stopped flat on the base of the neck. The oddest physical feature that the witness mentioned was that the mouth and eyes were illuminated with “a very ominous orange glow”. As the creature flew over a tree at the bottom of the yard and moved off in the distance, the fellow heard a deep-throaty sound, similar to the fog horn on a boat. The entire observation lasted about 20 seconds.

A young witness was walking his dog on a meadow which was located close to his home when he suddenly saw in the distance the figure of a ‘man’ coming toward him. He didn’t think much about it since the area was used by many pedestrians as a shortcut to the nearby bus stop. He briefly looked down at his dog and then looked up again to see the person approaching him in a very strange manner, for it seemed like the humanoid figure was floating above a cushion of air and was moving at a very fast pace. The witness also realized that the figure was very tall, taller than a nearby metallic link fence that measured 2.50m in height. As the strange figure got closer the witness realized that it was not a human in appearance, it had large slanted reddish eyes and a scaly skin like a snake. The witness immediately ran to the bus stop (with his dog) to try to find some other witnesses but the area was strangely deserted. He stopped by the bench and turned around to look at the strange reptilian figure but as he did the creature seemed to evaporate into thin air. He further described the creature’s skin as dark green color made up of large scales. Suddenly his dog apparently (and finally?) sensing something strange pulled the witness to the house, its hair standing up on end the whole time.
The only time his dog had reacted in this manner before was in the presence of other dogs who had tried to attack him. Soon after the disappearance of the strange being the witness spotted a mysterious yellow helicopter flying low over the area. Back at home he was terrified and he cried in despair and called his aunt as his parents were not home. (There was a report of a similar encounter in the area back in July of 2010, see summaries).

Carlos Rivera, a member of the folkloric musical ensemble ‘Medina Azahara’ was returning from a concert on the N-432 road in a mini-van on his way to Cordoba accompanied by two band technicians (three men in total). Carlos, who was sitting in the passenger seat next to the driver, suddenly at a location about 15 kilometers from Zafra (Badajoz) saw coming out of the embankment only a couple of meters on the right side of the road a strange humanoid figure that approached the passenger side window where Carlos was sitting and briefly looked inside at the astounded witness. The humanoid was described as about 2 meters in height, very thin with a ‘quasi-skull-like face’. Its lower jaw was open widely displaying a huge cavernous mouth; it also had luminous dark yellow eyes. It had something thick wrapped around its neck, like a ‘lifesaver’ and was moving its head in a circular motion almost as if it were ‘stretching’ its neck, at the same time the rest of its body seemed to tremble. It wore a white tunic-like garment that reflected the headlights of the van. The driver panicked and accelerated from the area while Carlos watched as the strange humanoid disappeared in the same direction it had come from.

Two families traveling in separate cars were traveling on the C-524 road began to see a strange luminosity in the distance that they could not identify. Suddenly from the second car the occupants see that the first car abruptly brakes and stops on the middle of the road in order to avoid a strange humanoid figure at least 2-2.5 meters in height that floated just above the ground on the side of the road, strangely they could not see any feet on the figure. The man-like figure has blondish hair and wore a tight fitting sky-blue diving suit which was slightly luminous and with an inscription similar to a ‘rhombus’ in the chest area. One of the occupants of the second vehicle stared squarely into the humanoid’s face who stared intently back at her. To her horror she realized that the figure seemed to lack facial features and seemed transparent but ‘deep’ at the same time. Both vehicles drove quickly away from the area. All the witnesses suffered from nervousness for the next several days and were not able to sleep well.

The witness had gone to sleep as usual and shortly after that, she felt a pressure in between her eyes and up around her sinus area “while in sleep state”. She had felt this before and was apparently ‘familiar’ with it. Next she felt a very strong sensation of her head rushing forward like if she were ‘the hood ornament on a vehicle going 90 mph down the highway’. Next ‘the usual kicked in’, rigid arms, legs, neck and trying as hard as she could to force her eyelids open but only getting a small peek, at this point while according to the witness the room now looked ‘distorted’ versus when she is ‘awake’ and have her eyes open. She actually felt everything around her slow down, ‘like slowing down an audio and getting deeper and slower’.
As the slowing down began, she could hear a voice talking in a deep foreign/alien language and ‘it was not nice’. She understood this language in her trance-like state and knew it was threatening and not of good intentions. Next, she felt herself lifting up out of her bed. She began to fight back like ‘she always did’ and felt herself leaving her body and could now see the room clearly. The only strange thing was her alarm clock which gave off a blue glow. She was literally outside of her body and self aware, but ready to protect herself. Next she shouted, “In Jesus name, Amen!” She had said that before during similar ‘attacks’ and although she not an overtly religious person she does believe in the power of faith and that Jesus “was crucified with best of intentions for us, and was divine”.
After this, things took a strange twist she made it over to her closet door and shouted at this presence in the same tone “deep and slow,” and language it had first approached her with. She was actually speaking its language, basically telling it to leave her alone and that she had the courage to fight it. Finally, according to the witness “she shed her skin like a suit and she was something like pure energy, but still similar to the anatomy of the human body”. Next, she looked down at her hands and they had things in place to fire light out of her fingers, so she repeatedly fired some kind of energy/light beams up at this presence that she could only said was above her apartment in the sky. She was then suddenly filled with love, Goosebumps and a measure of healthy fear and a sense of not being pushed around but grateful to have made it through whatever this was. She then woke up to a peacefully and totally quite room, thinking to herself ‘how strange this life can get’.

A man heard an odd animal sound coming from outside. The sound was a level growl or screeching sound that he listened to for about five minutes. The sound seemed as though it was just outside the window. The witness, intrigued by the odd noise, awakened his wife to see if she could recognize what type of animal it might originate from. When his wife got up and they both heard the sound, she looked out the window across the road to a creek about 15-20 feet away. She then noticed what she thought was a deer standing up in the middle of the creek. Her husband questioned why there would be a deer standing in the creek, and why it would be making such a strange noise. He then looked out the window and saw an undetermined creature dark brown in color and about the size of a deer. It could have actually larger than a deer if it was peering over the retaining wall. The man said when it turned its head, it appeared to have an elongated face, almost deer shaped, but not as stubby in the snout. It appeared to be more pointed in shape.
What could be easily seen were two big round amber colored eyes that seemed to be glowing. The man estimated that they looked to be the size of a golf ball. He didn’t think that they were reflecting as a result of some street lights some distance away. The witness commented that the freaky part was it was staring right at their house towards them. The couple noticed that whatever it was, the glowing eyes were staring directly in their direction. The man told his wife that he was going to check out what it was. Just then something very strange occurred. Suddenly the creature took one step, and took off into the sky at a 45 degree angle and was gone. The witness stated, “the speed was insane, I never saws anything move that fast.” He also stated that he never saw a bird that big and that he saw no signs of wings flapping.

Two men had just finished eating dinner and playing a round of golf and were driving on a two lane road that lead back to the east side of the city. As they turned right at a corner that leads back into the main road, they drove another 100 feet until on the right side of the road they saw an 8-9 foot tall figure that was walking back into the edge of the forest located under a street. The driver immediately hit the brakes, unsure of what he saw, the passenger looked shock and the driver yelled, “I think that was an alien!” The car came to a stop and the passenger (his cousin) yelled, “Go, Go, Go!” They sped away from the area and drove to their nearby apartment. They picked up some friends and returned to the scene of the incident but did not see the figure again.
The figure stood 8-9 feet tall, had a tall rounded crown shape head, the head was as big as a human abdomen, and it was somewhat muscular looking, it had big eyes but not the stereotypical alien-like, long legs and did not seemed startled whatsoever.

Three neighbors were outside their home discussing a ‘previous encounter with an orb’, it was clear out and as they explained what they had seen one of them saw a light on the railroad tracks about 75 feet away. As he looked closer they noticed that it was human-like and about 7-9 feet tall with an inner light emanating from the chest area. It had also long white hair. He yelled at his friends and pointed at the being which turned abruptly and seemed to vanish, speeding across the tracks. After this incident the main witness has a constant feeling of something watching him. Another neighbor reported seeing the same thing.

Six witnesses were leaving a restaurant and traveling in two cars, they headed to drop off some of their party. They were driving west on Highway 7 and as they approached the stoplight at 2nd street all of them (four in one car and two in the front car) saw a craft of some type in the sky just below the clouds. It had four rectangular windows on it. The car in front saw it first and got a better view of the object. The two people in the front car said they saw thin, humanoid type beings standing in two of the windows, which emitted a yellowish glow from inside the craft. No one in the second car saw the beings, but they did clearly see the windows and saw the craft back up, move down a bit and the move up into the clouds. There were no lights on the outside of the craft and it was so dark that it was difficult to see the shape of it, so all they could clearly see were the four horizontal windows with a light inside of them. The two witnesses in the first vehicle were so shaken that they refused to talk about it anymore.

The witness had gone out scouting for a place to build a deer stand for the upcoming season. He had gone out the day before and cleared out a spot in which to build the stand. He got down to the spot early that morning with the rest of the supplies he needed to complete the stand. He remembers glancing at his watch when his cell phone rang. It was a friend that was to suppose to be helping him telling him that he could not make it down there that morning, he chatted with him for several minutes before hanging up. He climbed down the ladder to get more nails from his truck and happened to look across the field and he saw a dark object in the distance. He thought it was a few miles from his location and thought nothing of it, got the nails from the bed of his truck and climbed back up the ladder to finish bracing. Once he finished the seat portion of the stand, he climbed up on it to check the comfort and make sure it was braced properly and would be safe to hunt from.
As soon as he sat down the wind picked up a little and he looked around to check out his line of sight and was shocked by what he saw. When he looked to his left, out in a cornfield, he saw a huge black object hovering low, just above the corn and the disappear behind the woods just south of the field. He climbed down from the stand and decided to go in the direction where the object had vanished. At first he thought he had imagined the whole thing because it made absolutely no sound and yet it was less than 100 yards from him. Once he managed to cross the creek and make his way to the edge of the field he could see the object which was now on the ground. A feeling of curiosity came over him. He was afraid of what he was watching but somehow was drawn to it. He couldn’t explain the overwhelming feeling that he had to get closer to it. It felt like something was pulling him towards the object. After standing there, he walked about 30 yards just along the wood-line and approximately 60ft from it. He thinks he was behind the object. Suddenly, he looked over toward the cornfield and saw two ‘people’ walking toward the object. He thought that they ‘were kids’ and started waving his arms back and forth and suddenly realizes that he cannot yell or say a word. At this point he was extremely frightened. When the supposed kids got closer he now could see that they were not kids at all but midget-like people and their skin was yellowish and they had very large eyes. In the end he doesn’t even remember getting back to his truck and leaving but he has not been back down there again. He has also experienced very ‘vivid’ dreams after the encounter.

The witness awoke and a shadow caught her attention, at first she thought it was her eyes. Her dog never barked or alerted her. She is not even sure why she woke up. When she blinked several times and rubbed her eyes she realized that she was seeing something. His windows are low so the figure could not have been more than 4ft tall. It was a shadow of a head, larger than a human head and a little skinny neck and shoulders that she could see. It moved so slowly that the witness ‘got the chills’. In the other window there was a tall super skinny shadow that slightly made a ‘Y’ at the top. As soon as the shadowy figure moved away from the window she hit her husband hard and told him that there was somebody outside. He turned on all the lights and grabbed his gun and ten minutes later they checked outside and found nothing.

Sometime in the middle of the night he woke up and was just lying on his right side staring at the wall and there was a quick flash of dime, greenish white light that came up from the floor, which was hidden from his view. He then got a glimpse of the top edge of what looked like an amoeba-like, semi-transparent creature. He quickly lowered his head and the creature was hidden from his view but here were furious energy weaves coming up in that corner of the room. The waves looked a lot like the ones you see over the highway, when driving in the desert on a hot day. He decided to take a good look so he popped up onto his right elbow, very quickly, and got a good face to face look at the entire being---for just a second---and then it disappeared and there was a slight rusting of two or three of the vertical blinds that cover the sliding doors which open onto the patio. He got a good look at the blinds swing a few times right after they made a tiny clattering noise. It all happened in probably two seconds.
The witness additional described the appearance of the creature as flat, like a fried egg without the yolk in the center. Rectangular, but with a wavy border---again like a fried egg sometimes looks. The border was thicker, like on a pizza. The size was approximately 12” wide and 18” tall. It had visible objects scattered randomly inside it, sort of reminiscent of vacuoles in a cell. The objects ranged from ¾ “to 1” and were whitish to dark green---but diffuse, since the creature was translucent, not fully transparent. The inside area of the being was dimly lit almost like the light a night-light puts out. His opinion is that everything of the creature that was visible was seen by light emanating from the being itself---this theory is based on the fact that as soon as the creature disappeared that corner of the room was nearly pitch black.

Humanoid Reports & Other Encounters / 2010 - August 2012: Part 3

The following article was forwarded by long-time humanoid researcher and colleague Albert S. Rosales. The full narrative will be presented in four parts...enjoy!


“Incredible accounts….by seemingly credible persons.” - Dr. J. Allen Hynek (1972)

Many cases from 2010 and 2011 are summarized in the issues of THE JOURNAL OF HUMANOID STUDIES and will not be duplicated here. After a busy 2011, 2012 has proven to be a most interesting year so far with numerous assorted encounters and cases, are we building up for something? Is this our last year to learn our real place in the cosmos? I suspect it will be my last year for collecting cases and I will start work in other projects. (All the available issues of the Journal of Humanoid Studies can be downloaded for free from the UFOINFO site).

Location. Teresopolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

As the daylight ended the witness heard several noises from different directions around his home, and area recently hit by severe rainfalls. He was very frightened as he thought there was a group of looters preparing an attack, and he was alone. He shouted out that there was nothing valuable to be taken. Later on he came to know there were military who obviously knew of the ‘event’ and was preparing the site for what seemed to the witness to be a “party”. He prayed and accepted his dead at the hands of looters but as the full moon rose, they, the visitors became more visible.
The witness estimated that there were maybe more than a hundred beings that were ‘carousing and swinging’ on the pine trees on his land. He suddenly felt extremely honored to host an ‘alien party’ on his plot of land. There were beings of different sizes and forms, but most were of human-like forms. At a certain point one of them descended in a bright ball of light at something between 10 to 20 meters from his kitchen window, and stood upright in front of two men dressed in military uniforms. He guessed that they were communicating (or trying to) by using telepathy. They stood there for something between 30 to 60 minutes. The whole district was still without electricity and the darkness made the witness loose notion of time. He saw several soldiers, very well disguised in a bush in front of his kitchen window. He asked them if he could go outside, if it would affect his ‘physical integrity’ or disturb the ongoing event; he did not receive an answer. He then dared to go outside and sit on a rock located 5 meters from his kitchen door. He then noticed that the beings ‘became shy’ and froze their swinging in the trees. The witness then chanted the mantra OM, which was told to him as being the sound of the Universe and one of God’s names they became a little less shy and resumed their swinging in the trees. He felt that he should go back in as he did not want to disturb the “party” which carried on for several hours. He felt safe and extremely ‘honored’ to host this event, he just didn’t like the military ignored him, but it was apparently their normal procedure. The following morning there were a few (about 4 or 5) military men trying to wipe away any possible trace the visitors might have left, ‘but one cannot glue a broken tree’.
According to the witness, the event was repeated the following night.

The witness, 27 year old Paulina was sleeping in her bedroom which she shared with her younger sister when suddenly in the middle of the night she was awakened by a powerful whitish light that entered the bedroom through the door, at the same time she becomes totally paralyzed and is unable to move. She was now wide awake and could only move her eyes. She now watched in horror as three very tall humanoid figures with thin bodies and whose heads scraped the ceiling began to approach the bed where she and her sister slept. One of the beings stood by the headboard and gently touched the witness’s forehead, at that same moment the witness remembers seeing a bright light and heard a sound resembling a popping balloon, after that happened she lost all her memory. The next day she heard neighbors talking about the sighting about a luminous object that was seen hovering low above the trees nearby.
She said that the beings exuded a strange ‘beauty’ and caused her to calm down. Their bodies were covered in a tight-fitting dark garment which was almost skin-like, without any seams or zippers. Their eyes were somewhat larger than that of humans and their heads were completely hairless.

Date: February 19 2011 Time: 03:25 a.m.
The witness was a guest at his son’s house located in the Woodstone Subdivision. Before sunrise he was awake and lying on the bed reading a real estate investment book. He was lying on his stomach with the book propped up on the headboard and using the light on the side table next to the bed for reading. The bedroom window was open a few inches but the blinds were shut. He suddenly heard a sound that seemed like a ‘ping’ from a submarine coming from the direction of the Julia Semmes library. He then heard the sound as if it was coming from Fountainwood and Judson Streets and then he heard the sound a minute later right outside the bedroom window. That worried him and he wondered how this pinging sound could get right up next to the house since there is a wooden privacy fence 6 feet high next to the window that prevents anyone from entering the backyard
When he got up he was glad the blinds were shut and suddenly his vision was blurred by some kind of a vibration wave that shot down into the room from the ceiling area, traveled through his body, through the bed and floor. There was no sound with it but it felt that the vibrations were coming off a loud amplifier. He was stunned for a few seconds and then, he doesn’t know how it happened but suddenly he knew that they were going to come in through the wall of the bedroom to visit him. He began screaming, in his mind only, “Don’t come in, don’t come in, don’t come in.” He was begging them to go away, he then felt that they changed their mind and he suddenly began to feel that he had been respected and they were not going to come in. His sense of normalcy returned, he was telling himself that he was just being silly and to stop having an over active imagination and decided to sit back again with his back leaning on the headboard of the bed. He moved his feet up and bent his knees so that he could put his book on his thighs and began reading again. At this point he was facing the bedroom door to the hallway which also gives him a view of the other bedroom door in the hall. He was the only person on this side of the house. No one else in the family woke up and heard the noise as they were asleep on the other side of the house.
Suddenly, in his mind’s eye he saw two little ‘grays’ standing in the doorway of the bedroom, one was about three feet tall, the other maybe 5 inches shorter. They were holding hands so seemed non-threatening. There was another being in the doorway of the other bedroom, about five feet tall, had a wider body and head not quite so odd shaped as the grays heads. No clothing or any other objects were apparent on any of the three beings. He did not feel threatened at all by their appearance. Of course when he wiped his head to look with his real eyes there was nothing there. Then he heard the sounds of the pinging object moving away from the house. It moved away towards Woodstone Elementary.

The witness was getting ready for bed and began taking his contacts out when he noticed outside the bathroom window a strange but somehow familiar object. He stopped what he was ding and focused in on the object, which was very, close to the bathroom window. The UFO was circular and he could only see the light on the inside of the craft, with a being inside it, but could only see the outline of its body…which was black because it was dark outside with only the light from the UFO. The figure was not human, but humanoid with a noticeably larger head than humans. Shortly after he noticed it, the object rotated away from him and shot towards the sky. (The witness has reported multiple sightings since then).

The witness remembers a missing time episode during the snowstorm of 2011 and bits and pieces o what happened to him. He experienced roughly 6 to 7 hours of missing time. He remembers being trapped in his apartment for 2 days during the really bad snowstorm when this happened. He remembers this sort of reddish-purple flashing lights in his face to nullify him and a small hand leading him to some place. (Also other colors flashing in his eyes like blue and yellow, like a round circle). He was walking in a daze somehow as they lead him into their ship. He recalls mostly reddish light.
Then he was led into some ‘bio-mechanical’ spaceship with their little hands. The ship had pulsing lights on the inside, like a heartbeat. It was like lit up veins running through the insides of a ship with these blue streamlined lights. He saw roughly 3 to 4 alien grays with big eyes and large gray heads and skinny bodies. He remembers a table he sat on that was also bio-mechanical. It was a flat and rectangular table. (The entire inside of the ship was also bio-mechanical, like it was an organic spaceship. The advanced technology of the ship was linked to the advanced thoughts of these being’s minds. Like they could control that spaceship while doing other things, they were obviously gray aliens who were highly evolved. He doesn’t know what the outside of the ship looked like, just the inside of it. He just recalls the ship hovering, but the gravity was slightly lighter. It was possible that the spaceship was in the higher atmosphere where a place could fly).
The 3 grays that he remembers were staring into him with large black eyes. It was like they were psychoanalyzing him, going through his genetic memories, both good and bad. There were not there to harm him, rather to help in some way. It would be like a veterinarian would help out an animal, after they had looked after it, then letting the animal go. He felt like they were programming parts of his life to be better somehow. And he vaguely remembers a feminine gray (if you’d like to call it that, with beige skin). It was more female in nature. When he woke up he remembers bits and pieces as the days and weeks followed. He distinctly remembers when he woke up lying on top of the sheets and the cat hiding in the closet.

The witness woke up one night well after his fiancée and he had fallen asleep, he was sitting on the end of the bed looking at one of the “others” (entity) in the room at the foot of the bed between the bed and the window/wall, which, along with the computer desk, was all he could see behind him. The entity began conversing in a language which he did not and do not understand as it comprised of mostly metallic scraping sounds and chirping. He described the entity as having large oval ‘obsidian’ eyes and standing about 5’6”. He could not understand its language yet he knew what he was saying, as if he were communicating telepathically in a manner he could understand. He distinctly remembers saying his name in a way the witness could speak it as “Raucyac”, and told the witness that he was there to talk to him. The entity also said that he was a youth in his culture, and with the soft features and gentle bearing it felt to be accurate.
The witness also felt safe and mentally intimate and a strong bond to the entity. They talked for a long period of time, but he is not sure how long as he was so entranced. He remembers that the entity spoke to him for a long time as friends would, but he does not recall everything that they spoke about. At one point in the conversation, he pointed at his sleeping fiancée and made what the witness equated to as a smile. The entity had very long, slender, wiry arms and fingers. His skin was graphite to deep steel color. He was quite thin so he could see his ribcage. He then made his goodbye and the witness blacked out and the next thing he remembered was waking up the next morning extremely refreshed, energetic and happy.

The witness was walking in the nature reserve late at night as he always did as several years ago he had seen a landed conical-egg shaped craft near the pond. On this occasion he was returning home on the last leg of his walk through the woods and was walking past a house on the outskirts of the woods when all of the sudden a deer ran frantically across the street in front of the witness maybe 20ft ahead and skids and falls apparently spooked badly by something. There was also a strange quietness in the air and the witness felt that something was about to happen. He continued walking towards home and took up a path along the border of the farm belonging to the last house next to the woods. The path is next to the woods bordered by some open terrain and fields on the other side. While walking his eyes were at a soft focus not paying attention to anything in particular then all of the sudden his body instinctively stopped and his eyes focused on an entity approximately 25 yards ahead slightly in a very aggressive posture staring right at him.
When he first saw the entity---this was entirely subjective---he already knew that it was an extraterrestrial alien of some kind without letting that occupy his mind as he was so involved in an instinctual stare down. The entity glowed a dull gray-blue and if he remembered correctly the moon was shining so there was some visibility as far as light was concerned. The strange thing was the entity uniformly glowed the dull gray-blue everywhere as if it were naked and no clothes on. No clothing was noticed on the creature, which seemed almost human-like in form, athletic, intense, focused, at the ready in that aggressive posture. He did not notice any eyes on the creature in the gray-blue haze that was its form yet he could tell that it was staring directly at him in a sort of standoffish way, like two animals in the wild that are infringing on each other’s terrain. After locking eyes or glances for three seconds as if he had stumbled upon this entity and it was surprised to see the witness there or as if it was waiting for him and that the witness had noticed it too soon and been too alert. The entity very athletically turned and ran full speed into the woods at about a ninety degree angle to the line connecting their paths. He heard the bushes rustle as the creature took off into the woods and also another sound to his immediate left that sounded like a deer going through the woods apparently chasing the entity as the two paths sounded close or like they would eventually intersect when traveling at such a speed through the woods.
Right after the entity took off dashing headlong into the woods, the witness yelled as loudly and aggressively as he could. He told a friend about the incident and she said that it had been just some random person walking in the woods and that it was nothing. But according to the witness there as a strange energy to the encounter, there was an extreme sense of tension, intrigue and danger. The strangest impression that he got from the incident was that when he locked eyes with the creature he felt like it had been waiting for him or was watching him and that he wasn’t supposed to have seen it so soon so it was embarrassed or something and it ran off.

Date: March 2 2011 Time: 21:00
The witness worked as a hazardous material transport driver in the oilfields in north central Texas. He had been following the mystery lights story around the area and had been seeing the lights as well. While at work on that day, he was observing strange lights above the tree-line near him. He took several pictures, and then the lights began to move straight at him. They were large, silent and unnervingly close. The shape of the craft could partially be seen now. It was 50 yards away and just hovering 50 feet above the ground and not making a sound. A large white light came on. He wanted to flee but was paralyzed with fear he managed to get a shot with the camera.
There was a humanoid figure staring out of the opening, definitely not human. He could see it from the waist area upward. He thought that he might be abducted. To his relief it began moving away slowly. The large white light went out and soon the lights disappeared. Some lights were moving overhead around his location. 20 minutes later a huge craft came in directly over his head. Massive in size it blocked out much of the night sky overhead. It was probably the most amazing sight any human has ever seen (not likely). He pulled out the camera and had to wait for it to pass to get a shot. It was so large he could only get a piece of it in frame. It was moving so fast he was afraid he would miss the shot completely. It circled and went out as fast as it came in.

The witness woke up to a strange black rectangular object (about 3 ft long and 1 ft wide) hovering 6 ft above the floor, over her daughter’s bed as she slept. It made no sound whatsoever. When she first saw it her first reaction was to scream, but she couldn’t even move because her body was paralyzed. She screamed the best she could and when she did, it left the room. It shot out of room in a blur, directly toward the opening above the door to get outside. When she finally got her right arm to move toward her husband, she tried to wake him up by squeezing his arm and then pinching him. While this was happening she could hear the sound of something like a small propeller or rapid flapping in the room in front of the door the object must have left through. She couldn’t explain how the object got out through the opening above the door since it is only about 3 inches wide and 2 and a half ft long. She also couldn’t explain why her husband would not wake up and why her body was paralyzed. The witness was convinced that it was some kind of structured machine.

Two witnesses had just returned from the grocery store and had just exited their van and were walking towards the house when one of them looked up at the sky and some movement caught his eye. He pointed to the object and his companion acknowledged it and tracked its movement with him.
They could not make out any details. What they could make out was a wide wing span. There was no movement, no sound. They estimate that it was moving at approximately 20 mph. It appeared to be flying about 20 ft taller than the tallest treetops---or about 80 ft high. It appeared to have a tan color. They followed it over their house, across the road and then it disappeared in the darkness going in a northeast direction. The bulk of the wingspan was at least 12/15 ft wide, and possibly much wider given the rough estimate of the height. It appeared that they were only seeing the very bottom of the wing, and there may have been areas on the object that were not visible in the darkness. After it was gone, they first thought it could have been some type of UFO or flying saucer, but after they thought about it they came with the impression that it had been an ‘organic’ object or a flying creature that had been completely gliding---no wing motion.

The witness was getting a drink from his night cabinet when he noticed objects moving in the corner of his eyes. He turned several figures described as five to six feet tall with very huge heads and tiny chins, with very long fingers. They wore light-silver colored body suits and he could see the details on the humanoid closest to him, like bones protruding from its neck area. He was afraid to react and just kept his eyes on them as they stared at him, after at least two minutes of making sure it was real, the witness turned around and fell asleep (?).

A local businessman was driving down the road when from about a quarter a mile away he observed something on the right side in a grassy area. He first thought that it was a deer. The driver stepped on the gas to move closer to get a better view. From about 50 yards away, he observed something that appeared to be hunched down, and then stood up. The driver then observed a very tall muscular creature. At this point the driver had his high beams on and watched as the creature walked in front of a yellow reflective road sign, then crossed the two lane road in three long steps and continued into a wooded area. What he saw was a humanoid figure that stood at least 8 feet tall that appeared to have smooth leather-like skin that was of either a darker tan or light brown color.
The creature never looked at the witness, and was only observed from its side. The head appeared to be flat in the front section, and the rounded out. “At the top back of skull, it was like one of those aerodynamic helmets. The top was not quite a point, but looked like a ridge on top of the head.” The face was flat, and the eyes were not clearly defined, but the man thought that they might have been pointed in the corner. The ear that was observed on the left side was long and flat, and came up and back and was pointed backwards like a flap. The arms were muscular and a little longer than that of a human. The hands looked more like a claw, but the number of fingers was unclear. One physical trait that stood out was the extremely muscular legs. The witness stated that it was hard to explain, but the legs did not move like that of a human, and “looked like they bent backwards.” The witness also saw what appeared to be wings on its back which were tucked into its body, with the wing tips extending toward the side of its head. No unusual sounds or smells were noticed during the observation which was estimated to have been about 7-8 seconds. As the motorist approached the location where the creature entered the woods, it could no longer be seen.
The next day the witness decided to drive back to the location of the encounter to look for any evidence. The ground conditions were not suitable for tracks and nothing was found. The witness did, however, measure the road sign that the creature had walked in front of. The sign was just over 8 ft high, and the head of the creature was estimated to have reached about 4 inches above the sign.

Two male residents of a local home reported seen short, very white creatures with long tails and a cat-like mouth. The creatures have real pointed legs and walk on the rear legs. When they attempted to hit or touch the creatures they felt stunned and unable to move, until the creature moves away. They emit no noises and they seem to jump on beds because you can feel the movement. The main witness has a pit-bull which he thought might scare the creatures but the dog became a ‘nervous wreck’ and had to go on medication. Sometimes they come into the house on Wednesday afternoons and stay until Thursday night. The witnesses hear noises like boxes being dragged across the floor but when they check there is nothing there. The witness set up a night vision camera but the creatures managed to avoid being photographed. One night as he slept his feet suddenly began moving up and down and it was not him doing it. Nothing showed up on the camera other than his feet moving up and down.

Close to Easter Sunday the witness, Tom, had gone to bed around 22:00 and around 2 am he suddenly woke up to the familiar feeling of energy surging through him. He then felt that he dropped back off the sleep. The next moment he suddenly had a vision of 6-7 small gray beings staring down at him. He immediately recognized them as such as he has an interest in the UFO subject for many years.
The grays looked ‘youthful’; they were small in size and ha smooth pale gray colored skin. Their eyes were completely black and almond shaped. Behind the grays he could see the ceiling and walls of a small enclosed darkened place. Tom felt that he was not actually there with the beings but was still in his bed and had somehow made a psychic connection which allowed him to see them and them him. He sensed that they were up in a craft high above his house. He felt out of control of the situation and immediately became frightened of the beings. He sensed that they were amused by his fear of them. He does not know where this feeling came from; the beings did not make any physical expressions which portrayed emotion. A moment later the link between him and them was broken and he jumped up in bed wide awake. It was still dark outside, but he does not remember checking the clock. He felt that his fear had been the cause of this break in the link, and that if he had not been scared he would have continued to observe them. He was fascinated by what had just occurred. This was something completely new to him, despite the fact he had felt the surge of energy through his body many times before.
He settled back down to sleep, but soon felt like it was going to happen again. He was frightened by this prospect so stayed awake as long as he could. In the end he dropped off and slept normally until morning.

The witness had left his Boxer, Buster out and was standing in the doorway waiting for the dog when he saw a little figure run across his neighbor’s backyard. The figure was 3 ½ feet tall with green skin. It had big eyes with a prominent head with proportioned arms and legs. The street lights allowed him to see it clearly with few shadows. From about 64 ft away it stopped and stared at the witness’ dog and him, they both stared back. The witness attention was diverted briefly as he let the dog in but when he turned back again it had vanished. To his knowledge the figure was not wearing any clothing.

The witness was awakened by his German shepherd who came to get him out of bed. She would not stop barking at something in the backyard. She wanted the witness to go to the back door. As he walked through the kitchen he stopped, he could see a whitish/bluish light coming in the window in the door and the back windows. He had never seen any lights like this and thought it must have been a helicopter looking for someone. He did not hear any sound though and thought that was odd.
The witness (a retired police officer) felt uneasy, so he went back to the bedroom to retrieve his gun, which is always loaded. He then went back to the kitchen and opened the back door, at that point the light just blinked out. He looked around the yard and looked up where the light was and saw a very dark dull black triangle shape above him. It had no lights on at that point. The object which appeared to measure the width of his yard (50 ft) just floated there, unmoving. He then heard a noise towards the back fence and looked in that direction. Then he remembered his flashlight and went to get it from the kitchen drawer, when he heard the sound in the hallway behind him. It sounded like an animal of some sort (two clicks), so he shined the flashlight there for a few seconds but saw nothing. He then went back out to the back porch and shined the flashlight in the direction of the noise he had heard outside and saw a very strange, short (approximately 4’ tall), gray, humanoid looking creature with big eyes standing there looking at him for just a second or two. It just disappeared---it did not run. Then he looked up and the craft was also gone---he did not see it leave. He stood there, frozen with fear. His dog would not come outside, which was not normal behavior. His first instinct was to dial 911 and went to the phone, but after picking it up, he put it back down. He knew everyone in the police force and even though they had received a few reports of UFOs in the past, he knew they would think he had lost his mind. He then locked the entire house up and went to the bathroom, not thinking about the noise he had heard in the house before until the morning. His wife had been sound asleep and he did not wake her, and did not tell her what happened.
He thought he had been gone for only 10-15 minutes but when he looked at the clock it read 04:46 a.m. He doesn’t know what happened to the time, in the morning he also had red sunburn on his face, neck and arms.

The main witness, her husband and their two-year-old son went to a used bookstore two hours from their home on a Saturday. While there she followed her son into the children’s playing area. He rounded the corner to the aisle with the books there she saw a girl standing, not moving, a little ways down the aisle staring in their direction. Then her husband walked up to them, as he came closer, the girl did as well, following behind him. Her son ran off toward a table and her husband followed. The girl walked up and got right next to her within inches, almost touching. The witness started to feel extremely uneasy and moved away to where her husband and son stood at the table. They were both looking down at a Mickey Mouse doll which she tried to talk to her son about.
As she looked down she saw movement coming up behind her out of the corner of her eye. It was the girl, she noticed her clothing looked from about the sixties and she looked very out of place. She was also overdressed with multiple coats on in a normal temperature environment.
She walked in a circling pattern, with her head down in a predatory way, the way a panther stalks its prey. As she stared at the girl, she walked slowly. She distinctively remembers that the girl did not make a sound when she moved. She thought it was out since she had a lot of clothing on and a bag with her. Her eyes were all black no whites in her eyes, no pupils. She stared coldly, devoid of emotion, and you could feel the evil radiating off of her. The witness remembers that as she made eye contact with the girl, she had a very distinct feeling that she was not human. She had a feeling that she was something evil in a human shell. She felt the most amount of terror and the most threatened she had ever felt. She also felt like she was the food at the bottom of the food chain and she was her next meal. The witness definitely felt a fight-or-flight response after she was able to pull her eyes away from the girl’s. She remembers thinking that she had to get away and had to protect her family. She tugged on her husband’s shirt and grabbed her son and started to pull them away. Her husband asked why; she said they needed to just go. She also remembers thinking that it was very important that the girl didn’t know they were leaving because they were afraid of her. They went to the other side of the store, her husband walked off to the electronics section and the witness and her son stood in front of a bookshelf full of board games. There was an aisle right behind them for magazines. Then the witness heard a man that was leaning down toward her son say in a very low tone, “I see you…she can’t hear you, but I can.” Too scared to turn around, she grabbed her son and dashed away. She now believes that the man and the young girl were there together.

A local resident, Julio Acevedo had woken up early in the morning to do a doctor’s appointment but once he stepped outside into his yard he spotted what appeared to be a boomerang-shaped object floating over the chicken pen. Hours later upon checking the pen he found all the chickens dead and apparently totally drained of blood. He was stunned to find that most of the dead poultry showed signs of strange puncture wounds around their necks. He added that others in the region had seen similar craft maneuvering over the region. According to Acevedo there was no trace of blood on any of the chicken carcasses, also he could not explain how anything got inside the locked (with lock and chain) pen. Nobody heard a thing, but according to his son who slept about six meters from the chicken pen around 2 am he heard footsteps outside but saw nothing.
Is not the first time this sort of thing occurred in the region, about five years ago another farmer found 12 of his sheep dead, with the same tale tell bite marks in the neck area and two years later another farmer lost his chickens in the same manner.

The witness, Gregor, was exploring a narrow cave that a colleague had recently found, located on the opposite side of the descending mountain range in the foothills near the east bank of the Halsatter See (lake). As he moved through the difficult passageway he started to hear voices emanating from the darkness ahead. He stopped to collect a few samples from the cave wall---chipping it with his pick. He moved deeper---maybe 50 meters---until he noticed the voices again. He is familiar with echoes and the Doppler Effect sounds in caves but this was totally different. He stood quietly for several minutes until the voices stopped.
Again he moved through the cave---almost crawling at this point. After another 40 meters he ascended into a chamber that was big enough to accommodate several people. There were two wide openings on the opposite side of the chamber---each looked like it had been excavated by machine. There was also an obvious rotting odor. As he examined the chamber he noticed an odd red iridescent as he passed the light over the rock floor. When he knelt down to collect a sample he again heard voices coming from one of the passageways. At this point he was terrified and started to hurry back through the narrow cave. After he squeezed back several meters he was able to turn his head just enough to look back into the dark chamber. A yellow light slowly made its way into the chamber from the left opening in the chamber---then there were several yellow lights following the first. As the lights moved through the opening into the chamber then back through the opening on the right he was able to see the beings. The sight sent fear throughout his body---he was actually paralyzed.
The creatures were humanoid in stature---but these were not human. Each varied in height but all looked the same---muscular lizards that walked upright like humans. There wasn’t a better term that he was able to use to describe these beings. These creatures wore dark colored full-body uniforms that extended and covered the feet. He couldn’t tell the exact color of the skin but each had a pronounced muzzle. The long tails were very prominent and swiftly swayed back and forth as they moved forward. The arms and legs were massive---he could detect the musculature through the uniforms. There were voices also---as if they were talking to each other. The voices actually sounded human though he could not understand the language. There were possibly 20 or more of these creatures as they walked single file through the chamber and into the other opening. When he thought it was safe to move he quickly withdrew from the cave. He thinks he may have been in shock because he barely remembered anything that happened from that point until he reached his office. He decided to keep a private journal of the encounter. His colleague who originally found the cave told him that he has explored the cave since the encounter but never mentioned anything about the chamber, other passageways or bizarre beings.

As a construction worker, he felt that he could judge the size of objects fairly well. The creature had a wing span of at least 12 feet and was jet black. It completely blocked the view out of his windshield and then some and moved at a very high speed. He was traveling between 35-40 mph and it had to have been traveling at around 70-80 mph. according to the witness he researched large predator birds and raptors indigenous to Ohio and there are none that fit the description of what he saw.

The witness, Mark, (involved in other encounters) was in bed getting ready to sleep and was lying there when a ‘voice’ popped into his head that simply said, “Something to think about.” This took him by surprise and he started to look around his bedroom. It was very dark but he saw what he thought to be a dark figure about 3ft in height win long spindly arms and legs standing in the doorway. He could not tell if its color was black or if it was just from the darkness. He observed this for several minutes trying to engage in communication asking questions ‘telepathically’, but never got a response. This was also accompanied by strange lights that seemed to be emanating from the floor of his bedroom. As he went to get up from bed a sudden wave of tiredness swept over him and he at once fell asleep.
The witness adds that there is strange activity occurring in the house involving disembodied voices and poltergeist activity.

They had always heard strange noises in the home: footsteps, knocks, talking, and other things had happened over the years. That morning she had fallen asleep in the living room and awoke around 5 am. There was enough daylight to see ok. Standing there just looking at her was a little man. He was standing next to a chair about 5 feet away from her. Compared to the chair, she estimated his height at around 3 feet tall. He had his hands folded in front of him and was kind of dark gray in color. According to the witness, the weird part was that she seemed to know who he was, but just couldn’t remember from where. She wasn’t scared, and he didn’t seem menacing at all, she just went back to sleep.

A man and his fiancée were driving around this night in a rural area when they came behind what appeared to be a slow moving vehicle with its hazards on. As they got closer more lights came on surrounding the object and appeared to pulsate. At first the man thought it was a tractor (due to the rural area) but as they got closer he listened to an engine and it was completely quiet aside from his own car. They were roughly 20 yards away and could see something walking back and forth around it. As they watched they could see underneath it as if it were floating. When they got closer to the object it picked up speed and headed down the road so they turned off onto another road. As they reached the end of the road (a good 5 mile stretch) he looked in his rear view mirror and saw the object following behind them and quickly gaining speed. They turned off and sped home and that was the last they saw of it.

A man and his teenage son were camping were camping in an isolated area which was known as bear country and also of having had Bigfoot sightings over the years. They had secured all the food and other supplies in the RV and were getting ready to go to bed. Around 00:30 a.m. the son fell asleep quickly while the father was getting a few things ready as they were going to leave this location later in the morning. He was looking at a map when he started to hear high pitched screams. At first he thought it was a coyote but it was a single scream and sounded more human---like a woman’s scream. He opened the RV door and stood silent in the doorway. Once again the high pitched scream started. This time, it woke his son. They both stood at the door as the screams continued from the direction of the mountain. After about 10 minutes the screams stopped and they both went to bed.
Later as he slept something startled the father and he woke in a panic. He looked at his watch---it was 02:40 a.m. Then all of the sudden that same high pitched scream erupted outside the RV. As it started again the son jumped out of his rack and fell to the floor. The father grabbed his .44 gun just in case. As they looked out through the windshield the moonlight was bright enough to illuminate a tall thin creature with light colored skin. The son yelled ‘zombie!’---it did look like a female human form but the face and the rest of the body looked horrible. It reminded him of an old witch---no clothes, deformed face, long light colored hair, long arms and legs. He thinks it stood almost 7 ft tall. It was looking away from the RV toward the lake. They made sure everything was ready to go and drove out of there as soon as possible. They ended up near Mono Lake, a few days later he was able to talk to a ranger as he walked through the camping area. He was an older guy and quite engaging. The father described what he witnessed---his son also verified what they had seen. The ranger got a serious look on his face and said that over the years, something similar had been reported a few times. He said that they called it ‘Penelope’ but he didn’t know why it had gotten that name. That’s all he knew.
