August 16, 1945. San Antonio, New Mexico

Reme Baca, Jose Padilla. "Praying Mantis" described on CoastToCoastAM interview 12-01-10.

Padilla described the crash as sounding like a sonic boom, and thought it could have been an atomic bomb test. The crashed object, he said, was around 35 ft. in diameter, and 15 ft. high. Baca said they witnessed thin-bodied creatures inside the craft, resembling "praying mantises," while Padilla characterized them as three little men who were rushing back and forth like they were injured. The boys returned to the crash site two days later with adults, and the creatures were gone, but the craft was still there.

He associated entity with small, grey beings, which David thought were androids programmed to do work for the praying mantis and tall humanoids.

  July 3, 1955. Stockton, Georgia to Florida
Witness: Wesley Symmonds. Another incident related during the press' fanfare was that bedalling Mrs. Wesley Symmonds of Cincinnati. 41 While driving through Stockton, Georgia to Florida on July 3, 1955, she encountered four bug-eyed creatures standing in the road. This case I do not dismiss, having talked with Mrs. Symmonds plus having her testimony on tape, which was made during an interrogation by Calvin Prem, Assitant Prosecuting Attorney for Hamilton County, I felt that she was relating the truth. At least in my opinion it was an attempt to relate an experience she ould not explain.

Praying Mantis

1971 Brighton, East Sussex, England Witness: Simon Parkes. I did come face to face with something inside the object and I know that I made an 'agreement' with this being - this I have drawn. I later learnt that such beings are called a Mantid - or in the USA, Mantis


Missing Time

November 26, 1972. Zamora, California Witness: Judy Kendall. Present were five entities of frightening appearance; with insect like eyes and a pale, or white translucent skin through which was visible a number of red veins. They wore an outfit with a turtleneck top that apparently concealed the lower portion of their faces. She is told that no harm will come to her but the voice does not appear to be spoken normally, sounding more like it came through a megaphone. Dr William McCall & Prof Alvin Lawson

Missing Time








1973 Cooksville, Maryland Mike Shea was driving toward Olney to meet a friend when about 15 minutes outside of Baltimore he noticed a beam of light strike a barn 150 feet from his car. He then saw a huge hovering object with a ring of alternating red & yellow lights. The object was totally silent. When the beam of light shut off Shea became fearful. He felt something coming up behind him. Suddenly he saw the object overhead and felt an electric current running down his spine. The next thing he knew he was feeling quite relaxed and was approaching his destination. He had somehow lost two hours of time. Years later under hypnotic regression he remembered seeing four figures standing at the side of the road. He then realized the figures were creatures dressed in a black kind of plastic armor. They had black faces and appeared to be wearing helmets with a line down the middle that came to a point. The beings looked like huge grasshoppers with long arms and bowed legs. Three of the creatures were large. The fourth one was small and wore a black silky suit with a zipper up the front, somehow this being seemed "ancient" to the witness. He then saw a large shiny craft hovering nearby emitting a low whirring sound and a smaller craft on the ground. Eventually he was taken inside one of the crafts, put on a table, and examined. Various organic samples were collected from his body. Patrick Huyghe, The Field Guide To Extraterrestrials




ET: Short

November 18, 1980. Cambridge, Ontario Canada

The main witness and her son were traveling on Pinebush Road when she spotted some bright lights approaching from the east. The witness pulled over and stopped the car thinking that it was an airplane in distress. The lights now approached and stopped nearby, the witness could now see a dark metallic dome shaped craft behind the light. Now more lights turned on, on top of the hovering craft. The witness now felt hypnotized by the lights, she then had a floating sensation and felt drawn towards the craft. Here next recollection was of seeing the craft shoot straight up and disappear. Later under hypnosis she recalled being taken into a small craft that was cold inside, then into a larger object. She was then surrounded by numerous short ugly beings with large bright eyes that were somewhat insect like. She was then taken through a long tunnel with rough edges. She then entered a room with bright lights, there her clothes were removed, and she was medically examined. The beings communicated by using telepathy and told the witness she had been "rejected." Another being with three eyes was apparently in charge and commanded the others. She was finally released. The witness suffered many painful after effects similar to some type of radiation damage. Her son was apparently not abducted.

ET: Short

September 2, 1987. Yukon Territory, Canada

I came face to face (about 20 yards) with 2 grey creatures in blue jump suits, about 5 ft. tall with big insect looking heads, pointy faces, big eyes, thin arms, body and legs. I immediately thought "they're not little green men*, they're grasshopper people".

*(before this, all I knew about aliens was that they were supposed to be little green men.)

At that same instant, the one on the left raised his left hand to his waist, which held some type of flashlight device and I saw a bright flash of light come from it.

I instantly felt paralyzed and was convinced time had stopped, everything was black, no sound. I tried to yell "No!" but all that came out was a distorted grunt.


ET: Short

August 15, 1997. West Palm Beach, Florida June (involved in other encounters). The small creature resembles an insect, something like a praying mantis. The room is very cold and has a very bad odor. The being with the rod is further described as about 4 ft tall, with four fingers that he wiggled slowly. He had antennae as well as a beak-like protrusion on his face. The bed in which she was lying on was low and close to the floor. The room was described as curved and platinum in color but with a greenish light that came from the walls, ceiling and floor. She did not remember being hurt by the being. Miami Skyscan March 10 2000
