Two young teenagers, Jean F and Nelson C, where at home at night when Jean noticed that his pet snake had escaped from its cage. Both boys began looking for it outside among the rubble of the parcel. They recalled how half an hour before, their two dogs strangely began to howl and cry; however, it did not seem to be important at that point in time. They searched for the pet snake together when suddenly, about 30 meters from where they stood; they saw what appeared to be a stray dog. They threw rocks at to avoid an attack. However, to their surprise, the animal stood there, motionless and fearless; it did not get scared nor it ran away as ordinary dogs normally do. Shortly, the strange animal began to move towards them. The movements it made as it walked were very strange. It used two legs at a time. It made very small sand short leaps like a rabbit. Suddenly, it stopped and it stood up on two legs. The teenagers then began to feel some kind of energy. "It was like an electrical shock in the stomach," they said. It later walked again making a loud dragging noise, making small leaps and only moving one of its legs. They noticed the weird shape of the animal. "It was like a rugby football with legs," one of them said. Jean began to feel frightened and started to move away from animal. On the other hand, Nelson felt a strange need to get closer to the creature; he got to within 2 meters away from it. The creature appear to emit a strange luminosity that apparently, was bright enough to lit a small area around the creature in spite of the nighttime darkness. Nelson was mesmerized as he stared at the strange creature. He described it as having a head like a large dog with a flat nose like a bulldog. Its eyes were slanted and pale-red in color, which could only be seen when the creature turned its head from side to side like a lizard. At that moment, Nelson heard a voice in his head saying, "Don't stare, and just run away." They provided further description, describing the ears as flat, round and large. Its arms were short, it had elbows, and the hands had three fingers. It had hair like the one on a wild pig. Its legs were like the ones of a goat. The feet had also three fingers and a membrane like ducks, but somewhat shorter. On its curved back, they were able to notice a spinal section covered with amounts of even thicker hair. Most of the hair of the animal was gray, but the tail had a white tip. Nelson finally fled, terrified, from the area. He also described how he felt an inexplicable bone-chilling cold sensation.

The bread of the sandwich turned an orange color and the lamb became a silvery metallic color, sort of like liquid mercury. As he watched transfixed, he saw the orange bread and metallic lamb turn into the figure of an "alien" with the form of a man. It was silver in color and its outfit (smooth pants and shirt, like a jump suit) was orange in color. At this point Parker glanced at the wall clock and it indicated that 2 hours had gone by, even though it felt like minutes only. The alien figure communicated using telepathic means and asked Ted to come with him. They both went outside and there, Ted saw a landed black-colored craft in his backyard. In a split second Ted found himself inside the craft not knowing how he got there. The inside of the craft was pure white in color with strips of the metallic silver that the alien figure appeared to be made of. The rest of the incident is just a blur, but Parker did remembered hearing several loud high-pitched rings while onboard the object. A couple of days before while eating dinner with several other people there had been a similar high pitched ring and everybody had just stopped eating and walked out of the room.

Several friends were taking a trip to the coast and it was already very dark. They had already entered a tropical forest area and there was a mist rolling along the ground. As they turned around they saw something squatting in the middle of the road. It stared at them, and just as they thought they were going to hit it, it leaped off the road and into the trees. It leaped about 10 meters in the air. The creature was definitely human looking although it wore strange clothes. It was dressed in a green robe of some kind with little pieces of gold on it, and it was either wearing a head crest or it had a row of spikes running from its forehead to the top of its neck. Very frightened the witnesses drove out of the forest and at the same time the mist turned to a thick fog. They pulled over and decided to wait until the fog had cleared, although none of them were too happy about it. As they sat around and waited they suddenly heard a shriek. It sounded like some sort of wild animal and they turned the car on so the headlights would scare it away. The headlights revealed the same creature they had seen earlier. It hid its face from the light and shrieked. Right before the witnesses' eyes, the creature seemed to evaporate into the fog. Within five minutes the fog had gone and the normal rolling mist was back. The witnesses quickly left the area and drove towards the coast.

Somewhat perplexed he approached and noticed two individuals standing on a nearby field. These were over 2 meters in height, wore tight fitting white coveralls and helmets resembling that of the early astronauts. He parked his vehicle and approached the two strange figures on foot. One of the men walked away and entered the shiny pear-shaped craft while the other remained behind. Knowing that these men were "not from this earth" he still asked the remaining humanoid if he needed any assistance. He felt that as he approached the strange pair he had been in some type of a trance and seemed to have floated over the road. The humanoid answered and appeared genuinely happy as to his offer of assistance but said that everything was in order. He also added that the area was very beautiful and also added: "Humans don't know what they have. Where we come from we don't have such beautiful scenes, they disappeared a long time ago." The astounded witness managed to ask the humanoid where he was from and was told that they hailed from another dimension, a concept that humans have not yet assimilated. The humanoid smiled as he answered the question. The humanoid then bid goodbye and walked towards the nearby shiny pear shaped object, he then disappeared inside of it. The craft then emitted a loud whistling sound and disappeared at very high speed towards some nearby cliffs. The witness described the humanoids as about 2.50 meters in height, wide chests and heavy set, thin legs. Generally human features, but somewhat "refined" or sharpened features. The suits were very tight fitting made of an apparent synthetic material resembling plastic. Their eyes were very light almost white and their speech was hesitant & accented.

The witness was awakened during the night with a sense of some presence in the room. Looking toward the door, he saw, fading quickly, something, which almost had the appearance of a hologram. Next, shadows appeared outside the windows in an erratic shape. At first he thought the shadows to be from trees moving in a strong wind. The appearance was of a storm blowing the limbs to create these shadows outside the window. However, there was no storm. He looked at the adjacent window on the side of the house facing opposite and there was no wind at all. In fact there was no trees positioned in such a way to cast a shadow. He opened the blinds to see what might be causing the shadows. He then saw what seemed to be a hologram with the shape of two small eyes moving erratically outside the window. Frightened he closed the blinds. Two weeks later he was awakened by a humming sound and again saw the erratic shadows outside the window. He watched the shadows for 10-15 minutes and then called the police. The police found no signs of any intrusion in the yard. When the police left the witness walked toward the door facing the back porch and saw a large burst of bluish white light. It looked unnatural, almost like a laser.

His first impression was they were Herons, but soon realized that the color was wrong, and "they were huge, much larger than any bird I have ever seen." The two huge birds landed at the top of a very tall coniferous tree. The witness stated that the wingspan appeared to be wider than the branches, jest below where they had landed. The body size was estimated to be about six feet from head to tail. The oddest feature was the shape of the wings, which according to the witness appeared to be bat-like. The tree where the "birds" landed seemed as though it would break from their weight. The witness yelled for others in the house to come outside to look. Another family member was able to see the huge black birds as they passed overhead, and headed for some woods.

Pedro and Estela Moine had decided to visit the business district of town called Barrio Norte and crossed the old railroad yard through a pedestrian pathway that ran through a pasture area between some silos, old railroad depots and abandoned wreckage. As the couple moved through the premises they suddenly became aware of a strange and incomprehensible conversation between many voices. Startled, they stopped walking moved a few meters more and then heard the voices again which now sounded like strange "O" sounds. Pedro looked toward the silos and was able to see resembling humanoid but lacking upper and lower extremities. Despite the pleas of his wife, Pedro ran several meters toward an inner alley in the silo plant, being able to make out some 45 meters to the west and in profile---the entity, which acting surprised, avoided the encounter and moved again to the north. However, what filled the witnesses with wonderment was that the creature did so as though flying or floating without touching the facilities it passed. Pedro and Estela ran after it. It was thus that the man managed to see the entity apparently hiding behind the control room of the truck scale. Pedro ran toward it and was again startled to see the apparition rising as a plane taking off, flying at an altitude of 5 meters and disappearing behind a large metal shed. Bewildered, both witnesses called out, but were unable to see anything else. Pedro Moine as "a thing with human shape" described the apparition. It had some sort of light, although he could not say if reflected or self-generated, although he tends to believe the latter, since it was a nebulous whitish light, which kept him from making out details. The entire mass of the apparition appeared to be a body covered from head to toe in some sort of mantle, which he described as though it wore a hat, but covered with some kind of long raincoat reaching down to what he took to be its feet. He added that the "conversational sounds" repeated themselves in three separate occasions at various intensities. They were like conversations in a strange language.

Police officer Guillermo Arias was on routine patrol through a rural area when he heard over the radio that his colleagues in arms over at Achiras were seeing lights in sectors of said community, and that they were heading towards Chajan along National Route 8. At the wheel of the police patrol van, he managed to see a formation of 7 lights in the distance and decided to drive 10 km along a rural dirt road. When he had covered said distance, he noticed, not without surprise, that the engine of his vehicle sputtered and died, causing the police car to strike the edge of a guardrail. Simultaneously, the lights on the van's dashboard began turning on and off randomly, the police radio went haywire and its dial displayed the random shifting of the frequencies while the cabin became filled with an acrid odor, as though of burnt wiring, and the interior lights and stop indicator, which were broken, began lighting on and off. Seized by fear, Arias leaped from the van and walked away a few meters down the road, losing his cellular phone in the escape. The darkness was total, when suddenly, amid the confusing situation; an immense light emerged from a field adjacent to the road as a triangular object rose majestically into the air. Now Arias condition went from fear to abject terror as he saw what he described as a real "floating city" some 200 meters long with a long row of windows (perhaps as many as 100). Arias claims having seen something move behind them, describing the movement as "TV sets which make lines and shadows", which he defined as "non-human", and that many beams of light came out of the giant triangle, aimed at the ground. The event lasted 2-3 seconds, but to Arias it felt like an eternity. The object suddenly rose and sped away, vanishing behind the hills of a local field. As the object moved away, the whole area was lit up like daytime and there was an afterglow that lasted another 20 minutes.

Three girls had decided to visit the rooftop as they did the prior evening watching for satellites. It was dusk and the girls had a good vantage point looking towards the east. With them they had a pair of binoculars and a pair of walkie-talkies. The girls noticed that a large orange light appeared approximately 15 degrees above the eastern horizon. The anomaly was noted to have fluctuated in colors of orange, yellow, white and pale blue. At fist they thought of an arriving airplane, but then a second light appeared approximately 50 degrees south of the first anomaly, and about 10 degrees above the horizon. This much smaller anomaly began to perform some unusually maneuvering; from a stationary position it accelerated at least 5 degrees closer to the ground surface at an approximate 45-60 degree angle within a matter of a single second. The first anomaly then began to move slowly towards the north. At this stage they partially lost view of it as it moved behind a tree. Then a third anomaly appeared in a valley-like region of the horizon. According to the witnesses, this third object appeared to have "landed" on the ground surface. The object was then viewed through the binoculars and presented in great detail; the object was described as a gray saucer with interchanging colors of green, red/orange, blue/purple and white rotating around the rim. Thy also noted the trees being slightly illuminated by this extraordinary phenomenon. They were suddenly distracted by someone on their walkie-talkie saying, "Identify yourself." This was followed by some unusual voices communicating in a foreign language. Around 1830 the girls were then called down to have dinner. At about 2030 the girls re-established their places on the roof after dinner. To their surprise, the third ground-based object was still present. Unexpectedly a yellow beam of light ascended a few meters above the object and suddenly deviated its course towards the three girls. "It was like an orange, yellowy bright light shining on us from far away." The light shone on them for a period of about half a minute. At this point, it is not clear how one of the girls ended up on the ground. She became extremely hysterical and ran inside. The other two girls quickly followed her. That evening all three girls had stomach pains. One of them could not sleep and did not go to school the next day. Another of the girls woke up the next morning with her nose bleeding.

Local residents have seen a strange figure, which they described as resembling a "shroud". The apparitions, which always occur in the early morning hours, have become so common that in recent days several neighbors have stayed up late to see them, and it is thus that they were able to confirm the simultaneous presence of up to 2 such beings, as well as red lights flying over the area. All the witnesses whether individuals or in a group, agree that the entities are nebulous and glowing, with a pair of red eyes being clearly identifiable, and glassy faces (as if transparent). Their movements are smooth and they always appear from behind the sand dunes, as though "coming form the Naval Base." Most witnesses agree that they show a great interest in the water tanks located above the roofs, and that they do not flee upon detecting the presence of local residents---rather, they stare at them fixedly for some minutes. Deep silence is perceived during the observations and "the air appears to become still" and neither heat nor cold can be felt---only a sensation of warmth, as if the beings emanated heat. Witnesses also state that things appear to be darker when "the shroud" appears, as though ambient lighting were dimmed. Another curious fact is the large number of cats and dogs who report to the place where the sightings occur and sit down to observe it in silence, in a state resembling a trance. A series of semi-circular prints have been found in the dunes, not very deep, with 15-20 cm separations in some cases and 30-50 cm in others. The locals have identified them as the strange being's footprints. Efforts have been made to photograph the "shroud", but all images, despite the use of different cameras appear exposed. One witness who approached the site to witness the phenomenon took two photos of the prints in the afternoon and decided to stay with the group of people hoping to see the "shroud", managing to take some photos of same and record the new prints which appeared in the dunes after the sighting. A completely uncommon print was found at the site---but the residents aren't sure if it's related to the phenomenon: it has the shape of a five-fingered claw. One witness tried to make use of his carbine's telescopic sight to see the figure in greater detail, but "when he tried to focus on it, he could see nothing…it was a though it could only be seen with the unaided eye."

The same witness involved in a similar encounter last year was again camping in the same area when he again heard a noise. Shining the light in the direction of the sound he again saw the same creature. The creature sat there crouched by the trees staring at the witness. The witness walked slowly towards it, he got to within 20 ft when it just jumped backward and disappeared. He described the creature as about five to six ft in height, gray in color. It was totally naked. It had human features, but more leathery, and its face was very wide, its eyes were huge and even though they reflected light, they still looked black, resembling two intensely black marbles. Its legs were very muscular, but turned backwards, like a bird. Other hikers in the area have reported encountering little brown men on some of the more isolated trails.

64-year old Raul Dorado was touring some fields when he heard a loud sound on two occasions, like a whirlwind, which drew his attention. The third time he saw something he describes as a green circle with three legs hovering over him. At that moment Dorado fell to the ground, and according to his story, he carried a shotgun, binoculars and a cellular phone, the latter, which was taken from his hand, and he could clearly see being sucked into the object, which was apparently at low altitude. His next recollection was seeing the object disappear toward the east. Dorado remained at the location for an hour before being able to rise and walk back to his car, returning to town in a state of shock. He had to be hospitalized. Later when calls were placed to the (abducted) cellular phone someone would pick up and heavy breathing could be heard. Later on the phone was apparently disconnected.

A man named Todd Sees went up the mountain to look for pre-season deer. He told his wife that he would be home by noon. He rode his 4-wheeler up the power line behind his home. He never returned. A search party composed of local police, state police and volunteers searched for Sees. The 4-wheeler was found on the top of the mountain near a power-line. Tracking dogs could find nothing to go on around the 4-wheeler. The search went on for 2 days and over 6 miles of mountain was covered from top to bottom. Then, in the evening of the 2nd day, his body was found in a hard to reach wooded area. He was wearing his underwear. He was emaciated---not bloated. He was pale and had an expression of horror on his face. When he went up the mountain he was fully dressed, boots, camo-vest, hat, socks, pants. 3 people, on one farm, said they saw a large round bright object just above the power-lines at the time of the disappearance. It was silent, it did not move for about 10 to 15 minutes. It suddenly went up and suddenly stopped. A light shone down and something was pulled up into the light. It then went straight up, hesitated again, and then went west over the Susquehanna River and out of sight. More specifically a farmer saw an object above Montour Ridge at the power lines, on top of the mountain, it was round and very still over the lines. Suddenly it moved what looked like a few hundred feet to the east, it stopped and a beam of blue and white light shone to the ground. What was seen next was very unnerving, he saw what appeared to be a man suspended in the light, he was being pulled up head first, he was moving his arms slowly in the light. What looked like a man was pulled up into the bottom of the craft. A few seconds later it started shuddering, then went west very fast, stopped briefly, and then went straight up and out of sight. Also three fishermen saw the craft. The FBI is supposedly also investigating. (Debated as a hoax, who would? and for what purpose?).

Researcher Robert Lesniakiewicz was out in a wooded area looking for mushrooms when suddenly he felt an unusual quiet in the area, the birds seemed to stop singing and the insects had stopped chirping. Almost simultaneously he heard a whistle coming from somewhere in front of him that was initially high-pitched and then declined in volume. He noticed an "invisible" something or somebody that seemed to be parting some tree branches just about 30 meters from his location. Seconds later he heard a second identical whistle, this time coming from behind him. Lesniakiewicz had the distinct impression that someone invisible was stalking him and trying to surround him. He could feel whistles and movement all around him but could not see anything physical. After a few terrifying minutes everything suddenly returned to normal, with the familiar bird and insect sounds now back in focus. He searched around but could not find any logical explanation as to what had occurred. (Brings to mind the attack on a woman by invisible "aliens" in the Lorie Valley, France back in 1950).

She happened to see something out of the corner of her eye as she walked along and when she looked in that direction she saw what initially impressed her to be a very small, stark white person squatting on the ground in the alley about 25 ft away. It was still somewhat dark with moderate rain falling, so she was not able to get a detailed look at the creature. She was however able to describe it as about 2 ½ ft tall if it had been standing, and entirely white all over its body, either covered in very sleek fur or just very white skin. It was seated on its haunches and appeared to have tiny, dexterous hands like a very small person might. She was not able to see its head or face clearly but was able to make out either hair sticking out around its head or some sort of spines. She hurriedly walked away from the area.
