Disc Sightings - 1980s

Index Page

The witness had been out camping in a wooded area by a lake with her husband and twin sons when she decided to take a walk out into the woods. As she walked down a path she noticed a shiny disc-shaped object hovering above a clump of pine trees. She sat on a rock and watched the object until it disappeared. She then went back to the tent and realized that she had lost 2 hours of time. Later under hypnosis the witness recalled staring at the object and hearing her name called. Then a group of humanoids, described as thin and five foot six inches tall, wearing one-piece jumpsuits with a belt, took her inside the object. She noticed that on the belt buckle they had a symbol resembling a winged snake. They spoke to her by using telepathy and were apparently upset that she had tied her fallopian tubes.

The witness was traveling in her car when she suddenly lost control of the steering. She felt her vehicle being pulled by an unknown force towards a light that was hovering at tree top level straight ahead. She felt as if the car was floating. Soon she found herself in a clearing in a wooded area. Nearby sat a silvery metallic disc resting on three legs. A light shone on her and she sees folding steps descend from the object. She is drawn into the craft and through several rooms until she reaches a platform, made out of padded white silver chrome and lays down on it. Half a dozen men then appear; these are described as six-foot one inch tall, well built, long blond hair, high cheekbones, and blue eyes. They wore tight-fitting brown jumpsuits with matching shoes and belt, with a pale yellow stole draped over one shoulder. They also displayed a winged emblem on the chest area resembling a "hawk-eagle" head in center and wings on each side. She is then led out to the door and suddenly finds herself in her car. She then sees a craft taking off emitting a loud whistling sound.

Several 15-17 year olds were on their way to a discotheque in the town of Messel, 20 km south of the city of Frankfurt. At approximately 9:10 p.m. they observed three groups of lights consisting of four round lights flashing in different colors. Each group formed a square of 1.5° diameter at an altitude of about 30°. The first formation moved slowly and then stopped to hover in the air. The second formation displayed a slow movement as well; but the third group flew very fast over these formations and disappeared. After a few seconds the other formations moved away too. At that time the teenagers went into the discotheque.

At about 9:30 p.m. they were called out by friends to see something strange in the sky. A few minutes later all of them observed a bright blue flash coming from the sky like a spotlight. Soon after that, a steel blue luminous disk with a dome on top appeared over the woods about 600 meters from where they where standing. It slowly approached the witnesses at very low altitude, a distance of about 100 meters. Its diameter was about 10 meters wide. The dome was divided into several multi-colored segments. Inside the dome, something rotated like a "beacon". On the edge of the dome the colors yellow, green and red appeared, one after the other. Near the edge of the disc were four square white lights arranged at equal distance from each other. On the bottom of the disc a bluish-white light radiated in non-regular intervals, creating a cone-like shape. After a few seconds the disc started to move in spiral curves down to the ground; it stopped for a moment before it flew away at a steep upward angle. The excited teenagers immediately called the police. When the police officers arrived the disk could no longer be seen, but several unusual lights over the woods were observed by the police officers, too.

About two and a half hours later, Mrs. Hood had an encounter with the unknown. She lives on the outskirts of Jeanette, about 10 miles west of Latrobe. Her husband had just left for work and she had dozed off when she was suddenly aroused by a loud, highpitched whistle sound that shook the windows of her house The noise seemed to be just overhead. Within seconds, a beeping noise (continued on next page)Pennsylvania, continued accompanied the other sound and became so intense that it hurt Mrs. Hood's ears and vibrated through her body. Thinking that this might be the Life Flight emergency helicopter, which makes regular visits to the Monsour Clinic nearby, she opened her window and looked outside to see why it was so close. Instead of a helicopter, Mrs. Hood saw a very large object hovering over a wooded area about 450 feet away. She said it looked like a giant "silver metallic double-decker layer cake." At times, the surface appeared to have a green tinge to it, possibly caused by the sun's reflecting off of it. There was a dome-like structure on top in which a row of four square windows was apparent. Below the windows was a sharp outline which indicated a possibje doorway or opening. Numerous square windows were evenly distributed around the entire perimeter of the object. The outside edge of the object displayed flashing blue arid green lights that could easily be seen in the daylight. Mrs. Hood said the object moved up and down like a yo-yo over the trees for four to five minutes. Suddenly, there was a different, high-pitched "whoosh type noise" and the object climbed straight up into the sky and vanished from sight in seconds.

Three humanoid beings seen moving around inside hovering silvery disc, light beam to ground; UFO rose and moved over car with buzzing sound.

Alfred Burtoo's sketch of the craft.

Alfred Burtoo. Climbing up a set of steps into the saucer, Burtoo discovered that the ceiling was so low he had to stoop. He found himself inside a black, metallic octagonal chamber, which smelt slightly of decaying meat.

"I did not see any signs of nuts or bolts, nor did I see any seams where the object had been put together," he recalled. "What did interest me most of all was a shaft that rose up from the floor to the ceiling. The shaft was about four feet in circumference, and on the right-hand side stood two forms similar to those that walked along the towpath with me."

Time not given. A 13-year-old boy working at a kennel in Williston, Florida heard a humming noise, and noticed that the dogs were attempting to hide in their pens and whining. As he went out to investigate the area turned red with illumination, and a bright red disc-shaped object hovered only 20 feet over his head. He felt heat coming from the object. When he returned to the dog pens, the dogs barked at him and would not let him inside.

A large disc-shaped UFO followed a Piper airplane from Cordoba to Resistensia, Argentina. It reportedly maneuvered at great speed, and changed color from silver to orange. The plane's compass oscillated between 0.5 and 270 degrees, and there were several other variations noted in other onboard instruments.

About five minutes later, three small disc-shaped objects (3-4 metres across) flew into view moving towards the object. They travelled very quickly ('like lightning'), zigzagging to join the larger cigar. Each disc was grey, but showed an orange or rust-coloured area towards the rear of the disk body, before a tail fin.

"I was standing looking out my living room window. The erratic movement of a ball-type thing drew my attention. At first I thought it was a balloon, but continued observation proved it to be something metallic. It also appeared to be a more controlled flight than what a balloon would have been. After I realized that it wasn't a balloon, I felt excited, perhaps a little afraid. It came in high and on its side (which made him think it was a balloon). It crossed the street and did a lot of erratic things over the field (dipped, slowed, sped up, circled) then took off smoothly and rapidly over some high- voltage lines, and off into the horizon in the east. When it flipped to one side, it appeared shiny. I lost sight of it when it got too small, moved too far away to see." Sky was overcast with light rain.

Two witnesses driving back home after dropping off a friend spotted what appeared to be a bright star approaching their vehicle. They stopped at an intersection to watch and noticed another man in a station wagon doing the same thing. As the object came closer they could make out a saucer shaped craft. The object hovered over the vehicle about a 2 story high building. On the lower part of the UFO there was a bright light and it was surrounded by what seemed about a ten-foot section area, which all of a sudden started emitting multicolored lights. It seemed as if there was a pattern to the lights as they went in different directions. Above the area where the lights were being emitted there were what seemed to be glass windows and the witnesses could make out figures moving inside. The figures were human shaped except that they had very long and thin arms. Frightened the witnesses drove away and the UFO followed them for what seemed to be about five to ten minutes. As they approached the city lights the object suddenly took off in the opposite direction. Looking back the witnesses spotted three military helicopters headed toward the general area where the UFO had gone.

It was a huge silver or light gray disc! Not a shiny silver, but more like a flat silver-gray color. Just a plain underside! It was hovering below the lowest level clouds! The huge disc, which was sort-of oblate spheroid shape. I could see the entire disc bottom, and the angle was tilted to a degree, with the far side in the down position.

One the night of 28-29 July 1989, disc-shaped objects were reported by Soviet Army personnel at a weapons depot, and at another military base in the district of Kapustin Yar, Astrakhan.

The disk was about 5 to 8 meters in diameter, convex, shaped like a lens. Its surface was ideally smooth, seamless, silver metallic, indicating evident non-terrestrial technology, with a broad and slight not jutting gradual dome on top connected in the same line with the rest of the hull and a broad cylindrical base.
