The Chacinski Close Encounter

The incident occurred on August 11, 2003 near Szczecinek, Poland. Lech Chacinski, a driver for Kronospan, was traveling in the early morning hours, about 5:00 AM, when he saw three figures standing on the shoulder of the road. They wore uniforms similar to that of an astronaut:

An account of a close encounter of the third kind comes to us from Poland. The incident occurred on August 11, 2003. Lech Chacinski was driving down the road in the early morning hours, about 5:00 A M, when he saw three figures standing on the shoulder of the road. Oddly, they were standing in a triangular formation. They wore uniforms similar to that of an astronaut. The encounter was near the small city of Szczecinek, and its roads, as usual, were deserted during the wee hours of the morning.

Enthralled with the three strange beings, he slowed down to see if his eyes were deceiving him. When he got a closer look, he immediately knew they were not astronauts. The three moved toward the front of his car in the same triangular pattern. The closest being to him raised one arm as a signal for him to come to a complete stop. Chacinski states that "something" had told him to stop, though he heard no voice. Feeling almost frozen, he raised the driver side window as the beings moved toward him. He could now clearly see one of the beings, except for a darkened helmet. He could not make out facial details, except for big, black eyes. On top of the helmet, there was something that Chacinski thought to be a communications device.

As the full realization of what he was seeing overcame him, Chacinski wanted to run away, but before he could, he saw a strong beam of light come from the top of the one of the beings helmet, which he associated with the question; "Do you hear us?" To this, the frightened man answered in his mind, "YES!" He was prompted to exit his vehicle, and asked what type of material his car was made of.

He was now able to see all of the beings uniform. The spacesuit was bluish in color; the shoes had a metallic look; and on the chest of the alien was a rectangular electronic device with lights moving. The beings asked Chacinski other questions also, like;

What kind of material are your clothes made of?.

How does your vehicle work?.

What kind of fuel does it use?.

He answered their questions, telepathically, and they told him they had come to deliver a message to the inhabitants of Earth, and this message was given only to him. We should care about our planet; our water and air. If we neglect our environment, they will cause our destruction.

Finally, Chacinski asked one question of the alien beings; which he was able to convey telepathically. "Where do you come from?"

They replied, "Eight Galaxy."

While Chacinski stood in awe, the three moved up into the air about six feet, and flew to their waiting ship, which was about 100 yards away. From the bottom of the ship, a beam of light took the three into the craft, and as it did, a fog appeared around the UFO, which was sitting on three legs, and adorned with mult-colored lights. Soon, the ship rose about 50 feet high; and disappeared from sight. The area of the encounter is also one where crop circles often appear, and also where Chacinski's picture was taken. This incredible report of a close encounter in Poland is still under investigation - Brian Vike, HBCC UFO Research (hbccufo.org), 4-26-04 / Tomek Wierszalowicz, uforaport.prv.pl

N.Talbott's Interviews: October, 2006 & February, 2007

On April 26, 2004 Rense.com posted an intriguing report from Brian Vike (HBCC UFO Research) of a "close encounter of the third kind" which had occurred in a rural area of northern Poland 8 months previously (Vike's source: Tomek Wierszalowicz). Of great interest to me was the fact that the witness had discovered flattened areas of crop pressed into the field after the UFO departed—several circles arranged in a configuration which, from the photographs provided, looked exactly like what I would have called a crop circle. Could this be the first clear evidence of UFOs as the direct causative agent in the creation of at least some crop circles?

In October, 2006 I met with the eyewitness at a Conference in Warsaw where we were both speaking, and then spent another day with him on a road-trip to Zdany (where members of the Nautilus group and I were investigating another UFO incident). Translators provided at the Nautilus Conference were excellent, and subsequent intensive questioning by me of Mr. Chacinski and his friend Zbyszek Kalisiak (in-depth translations for this report carried out by Less Hodun) has revealed a number of corrections to the original report, as well as many addtional details.

I am convinced both of Mr. Chacinski's total honesty and his ability to accurately recount the details of this incident, and have therefore realized that crop circles— which I have always thought were not directly related to UFOs—sometimes are.

Following is a compilation of Brian Vike's original April 26, 2004 report, amended with the new details, photos and illustrations provided by Mr. Chacinski in mid-October, 2006 and in February, 2007.


Lech Chacinski is a truck driver who lives in Wierzchowo, Poland with his wife and children. On the morning of August 11, 2003 he left for work at 4:20 am, but as he approached a bridge near Szczecinek he observed three figures (standing in a triangular configuration relative to one-another, one in front and the other two behind) on the road in front of him--the figure in front with his hand raised as if in greeting. As he brought his car to a stop, the trio walked toward him and he at first assumed they were men, dressed in uniforms similar to astronauts' space-suits. However, as they came closer to the driver's side window he realized there was something disturbingly "extraordinary" about them.

Feeling "almost frozen" as the "humanoid" at the apex of the triangular group (called the "leader" by Lech) reached the driver's-side door, Lech could see a darkened helmet with a visor of some "transparent" material, through which he saw two large (3cm diam) round black eyes--but no other facial details. As the full realization of what he was seeing overcame him, Chacinski wanted to drive away immediately--but a blinding "beam of light" shot out from a rectangular chamber on the top of the "leader's" helmet, and Chacinski lost consciousness. When he awakened moments later he felt "calm" and knew the "leader" was telling him telepathically that he didn't have to be scared. He heard the question "Do you hear us?" and mentally responded "yes," after which he was asked to get out of the vehicle, which he reluctantly did.

Lech describes these entities as being about the height of tall humans (approx. 170 cm tall) with a basic human form (2 arms, 2 legs, a torso and a head), wearing tight-fitting, seamless "overalls of a dull silvery, elastic foil" material. He states that these overalls seemed to be "pumped up from the inside" and were "integrated with their shoes and mittens." On their heads were "helmets" with some sort of a band around the forehead which had a light source in the center, and on the top of the helmet there was something that Lech thought was a communication device. He saw no insignia anywhere on their clothing, but on their chests were "colorful blinking [rectangular] boards" with "7 lights in each row," each light a different color. He cannot remember the combination of colors, but states that the lights were "falling down [in a sequence] one by one, like a fountain." They also had packs on their backs which looked like those worn by astronauts or cosmonauts.

During the approximately 15-minute encounter Lech telepathically perceived multiple questions posed to him by these beings: "What material is your vehicle made of?" "How does it work?" "What kind of fuel does it use?" Mr. Chacinski did his best to answer and noted that they expressed surprise upon hearing how his vehicle operated. They also indicated interest in his clothing, in particular his belt and shoes. [This detail is of great interest, in that beings encountered in another Poland contact case (to be presented in a
separate report) also showed great interest in that witness's leather belt and shoes.]

The "leader" (who was the only communicator) then stated that they had come to deliver a message to the inhabitants of Earth, and Lech had the impression that he was being charged with the responsibility of spreading this message as widely as possible.

In essence the message was that we must "care" for ourselves and our planet, and that if we continue to disrespect the laws of Nature, the result will be catastrophic. Why this encounter, and this message—apparently regarding the enviornment--was delivered to Lech, he has no idea. Mr. Chacinski was apparently able to ask only one question of these beings, "Where do you come from?," to which they replied "Eight Galaxy." They also told him they would return, although with no details as to when, where, or for what purpose.

Truly awed by the ongoing encounter, Chacinski next watched as the three beings rose up about 3m into the air and "floated" across the field adjacent to the road to a very solid-looking "metal-like disc" about 300m away (which he had not noticed until this moment). Lech thinks the body of the UFO was about 50m wide (the "legs" being underneath the body of the craft), by about 20m tall. [His drawing ability does not equal a fully accurate representation of the UFO.] There were three rows of individually-colored "windows" across the upper half of the UFO and three sets of 5m long, girder-like legs, each set ending in two separate round feet which apparently stabilized the UFO on the uneven ground near the top of the hill. [Lech is not absolutely certain that these "feet" were actually touching the ground.] On the very top of the UFO was an opaque chamber and two "antennae." The beings landed close to the craft and then walked beneath it, at which point a beam of "very bright blue-white light" shot out from a round hole which opened up on the underside of the ship. This light "took the three beings up into the UFO" and the hole closed, after which a "colored smoke" (or fog) enveloped the craft. The UFO then "floated" over the ground for about 50m, stopped briefly (during which time the "smoke" dissipated), and then flew away at a 70° angle toward the SE, making an "ssssssss" sound.

Once the UFO had departed an imprint of multilple circles could be seen in the field, in which the plants were swirled and flattened--with smaller circles in the same areas relative to the "feet" Chacinski saw beneath the craft.

Andreas Muller has examined the two photos included in the original 4/26/04 report and has provided a "pseudo aerial" (a stretched version), which more clearly shows a thin, eccentric, ring around one of the smaller circles (Right, front) of the photo. He also thinks that this feature may be repeated around the smaller of the Left front set of circles, although this is not certain. And we can see only one circle in the set near the top of the hill.
