UFO Activity - Soil Samples, Foliage Gathering

Index Page

A Mr. Galbraith observed a disc-like object land on the ground; an entity left the object and collected samples of vegetation. The object transmitted a “force field” which pushed the witness to the ground. The same witness again observed an object on the ground, three entities who smiled at him, were observed outside the craft. A police patrol saw a light in the nearby woods, but couldn’t approach it because of an “invisible wall”.


While strolling near a creek one morning, Mr. Ottaviano A. Souza Bueno observed the silent descent of a round luminous object on one of the banks of the stream. There emerged from it 3 creatures of less than medium height, with extremely rapid movements, who started collecting samples of soil, using a tube which made holes in the ground. After the UFO had left, the witness went to the spot and found that all the holes were perfectly square. He took a sample and had it analyzed; the result was, Silica, 61% Aluminum, 19%, Magnesium, 11%, Iron and other trace elements, 9%.

A shepherd was guarding his flock of sheep in an isolated grassy area when suddenly the animals scattered in a panic. He heard a rushing sound and saw a large metallic domed object emerge from what appeared to be an artificial fog and land nearby. The witness approached the object and touched it; he felt a strong electrical shock and was knocked unconscious. The witness later woke up and found himself on a different field surrounded by several short entities, described as having large heads, large slanted almond shaped eyes, narrow mouths and small noses, they had bulging foreheads with short stubby hair. They all had boxes on their chests with tubes protruding from it. At times they appeared to grasp the tubes and breath into it. The beings gesticulated and spoke among themselves in an unknown language. Nearby sat the object still encased in a mist. Next to the craft stood five other humanoids that began collecting soil samples and placing them into large containers. Finally all the humanoids re-entered the object, which took off at high speed emitting a loud whining sound. Burnt spots were found at the scene where the object was said to have landed.

I left my motorcycle near a tree and walked toward the spot which Gabriella had pointed out. When, however, I reached a spot about 55 meters from the object, I realized that my first impression had been wrong. What I had seen were two men who were now about 40 meters away from me. They seemed to be dressed in some shiny metallic clothing. They were stooped over and were looking at something lying on the ground.

17-year old Lyyli Nilsson was cycling to a nearby village, when she felt something warm on her body and soon saw an object which folded out a couple of legs and landed on a ridge. Four persons, wearing strange “equipment” on their backs, like divers, came out. They wore some kind of helmet, which seemed to be fastened to their light colored overalls. They started to dig in the ground and the witness thought they were taking samples. Frightened the witness fled on her bicycle.

Following sightings of low flying objects in the area, a lone hiker at a remote location saw from a distance and hiding behind some scrub brush a group of man-like figures wearing shiny white “space suits” like outfits. The figures appeared to be searching the ground with strange metallic devices, apparently collecting soil samples. Soon after this incident three young hikers were reported missing in the same area and to this date never located.


While driving over a hayfield, Mauricio Ramos Bessa saw a bright metallic object, smaller than a Volkswagen, maneuvering 5 ft above the ground. It had a flat bottom and a rounded top. He drove to within 6 ft of it. A door opened and 2 men 5-5.5 feet tall jumped out; they wore “brilliant lead” colored suits, with a shining ball on each of their square-toed shoes. A third man looked out from the doorway. One of the men held a cylinder about 5” long and 1 1/2 “thick, which he pushed into the ground and withdrew; it seemed to became shorter and rounder. Then the men walked backwards to the craft, which was now closer to the ground. The witness developed a headache so severe that he did not observe the departure of the vessel; when the pain ceased suddenly, he saw it was gone.


The next day, news was spread that in the nearby fields of Saint Nicholas, an “aluminum hut” came down from the sky and landed. It had “windows” through which a shepherd saw incredibly ugly dwarfs inside. Among them there was a dwarf with the head of an animal. In a few minutes, a door opened on the “hut” and a dwarf came out, holding something like a golden plate in his hands. Then, the strange woman Mrs. F had seen the previous day made her appearance. The dwarf bowed to her, and she filled the “plate” with dirt. They both went into the “hut” and the latter took off and vanished in the sky with a loud bang.


Sallustio Salvemini was walking by some nearby prehistoric ruins, when he noticed a small luminous object that was descending quickly to earth. It was a bright orange color as it landed about 50 meters away. The light dimmed and he could now see that it was a classic disc shaped, flat on the bottom with a turret like structure on top, about 2 meters in height. As its brightness diminished, the witness saw a five-foot tall figure emerge from an opening on the object. The figure wore a shiny greenish coverall, with a gold colored belt, which emitted a lantern type light; it also wore a metallic helmet. The humanoid moved quickly around the terrain, apparently picking up ground samples and placing them inside the object. At this time the witness heard a loud humming sound coming from the turret and the light on the humanoid’s belt became brighter. The witness experienced a tremendous headache as the humanoid quickly entered the object, which shot away into the sky at incredible speed. A sulfur like smell remained in the area after the object left.

The 5-year old witness remembers seeing a large saucer-shaped object with a round top and three skinny telescoping legs that only came out when it was about to land, it emitted no sound. It was white metallic in color. 3 beings came out of the object through a door-drop down stairway on the sandy beach land grass covered area where it landed. The three beings looked tall, thin with long arms, and large oversized heads with large black eyes, they collected samples of sand, vegetation, water and communicated telepathically with the witness telling her, “Do not be afraid, we will not harm you” before embarking back into the ship. They seemed gentle and never bothered her; they wore white suits with golf-ball like indentation design.

Harold Carpenter, an employee at a local state, over a period of several weeks had kept hearing a very loud, deep humming noise, which lasted for about two or three minutes. The noise always seemed to occur between four and five o’clock in the morning. One morning, very curious, Carpenter rose from his bed, quickly got dressed and quietly stepped outdoors. With the humming noise still audible, and seeming to emanate from the southwest, Harold set off to walk to a wooded area known locally as Sunny Calvert. Determined to track down the source of the humming noise, and having come this far Harold clambered down a deep slope to where the sound seemed to be coming from. Harold peered down and was shocked to see a strange looking device. It resembled a mushroom without a stem. The object was gray in color and seemed to be hovering about eight to ten feet above the ground. Harold came to a vantage point amongst the trees where he could actually see the underside of the craft. It was definitely hovering above the ground. It was about 15 to 20 ft in diameter across the base, which housed what looked like a lip on the inside bottom. Even more startling was the sight of up to five “peculiar looking beings” gathered underneath the craft on the surface below. The beings were about four to five feet tall, and carrying what looked like “pound jam jars” with a handle in one hand and an implement resembling a pair of tweezers in the other. The beings used these to pick up bits of twigs and leaves before placing them in the clear glass looking jars. As the beings wandered around picking up various samples, all kept very close to the craft, which hovered silently above. The humming sound had now stopped. All wore the same one-piece gray; flexible looking suits that stretched over their feet. It also covered their heads much like a Balaclava. Their faces were exposed and Harold could see that these were human like but totally expressionless, with normal human like eyes. If they had any ears, the one-piece suit hid them from view. They had a snout-like nose, resembling that of a “pig.” Their mouths were similar to humans, and so were their hands, until Harold noticed they didn’t appear to have thumbs. While observing in fascination, Harold had inch closer and closer, until he suddenly realized that he was only to within 10 ft of the craft. At this moment one of the beings suddenly looked up and with the same expressionless face, stared directly at him. Without so much as a sound or movement, it somehow alerted the others to Harold’s presence, for the rest suddenly stopped what they were doing and slowly began to retreat to the craft, which had descended to hover barely two feet of the ground. One by one the beings disappeared underneath the craft by means of its lip. The craft then began to rise, at which point Harold saw one of the beings climb through a type of “gate” housed on the inside of the lip which then closed. The craft slowly continued to climb, moving slightly to one side towards a clearing among the trees. It gradually gained altitude and speed. It suddenly emitted a flash of light and departed at incredible speed.


The witness, Marie-Louise was indulging in her daily walk after having suffered a partial stroke, 3 years earlier. The day of the observation she was walking on a dirt road about 500m from her house near the small farm of La Croze. Suddenly at the edge of an alley of tall spruces and a meadow the witness saw a very shiny flattened hemispheric object. She described the object as flattened in shape, but round, and very brilliant, the color red was dominant but she could also distinguish yellow and orange, juxtaposed and spread out in strips of light. The object did not touch the ground as it seemed to rest on a kind of tripod. It was about 1m to 1.50m in height, at the level of the fir trees near the branches. The size comparable to that of a large car. The witness then saw two small beings occupied in collecting something around the meadow. Amazed, the witness did not dare to move from the dirt road, it didn’t appear that the entities had noticed her. The witness described the beings as very small, 1 m or less, with a very bulky head (perhaps a helmet?) and of a metal gray color. After a few minutes the humanoids penetrated under the UFO apparently carrying some vegetation with them. The machine rose without noise, and while trembling, to the summit of the spruces. There it very quickly took off disappearing from sight.

Rosa Lotti nei Dainelli. Approaching Rosa Lotti, who was now terrified, they snatched out of her hands the bunch of carnations and one of her black stockings. When she remonstrated timidly, the one who seemed the older of the two handed some of the flowers back to her, but kept five of them. Then, having examined the structure of the flowers with an air of curiosily, and laughing the while, he wrapped them in the stocking and threw them into the "spindle" through the small opening.

Fernando de Moya, 39, hunting on his launch, saw a luminous sphere hovering 6 ft above the ground. The 2 Indians with him fled in terror, but he approached and saw 2 3-foot tall figures with round heads & large eyes running back & forth to the sphere, with little jumps, picking up various things. They entered through one of 2 windows in the UFO. When they saw De Moya, they jumped into the object, which ascended vertically.


Jose Alves was fishing in the river Pardo near the location. It was a quiet night; the spot was deserted. Suddenly he saw a strange craft approaching with a wobbling motion, and it landed so near him that he could have touched it. It had the shape of “two wash bowls placed together” and was between 10 and 15 feet in diameter. Too terrified even to escape, he watched three little men in white clothing and close-fitting skull caps emerge. Their skin appeared to be quite dark. They gathered samples of grass, herbs and leaves of trees. One filled a shiny metal tube with water from the river. They then re-entered and the object rose swiftly silently and vertically and vanished. Jose Alves had never heard about flying saucers and thought he had seen “some kind of devils”.

A 12-year old girl sees a luminous boat shaped craft land on a nearby field. Three hairy humanoids emerged from the object and began to gather apples from a nearby orchard.
No other information.


A 48-year old farmer, Amerigo Lorenzini, was placing some grass in a rabbit hutch just outside of his home. All of the sudden, Lorenzini heard a swishing sound (like a flock of swallows make). Interspersed sort of a metallic noise, coming from above him. Gazing up, Lorenzini was blinded by a dazzling light, and then he eventually passed out until the light went out. At this point the farmer observed a cigar shaped object which had landed in a nearby clearing. The object was surrounded by a luminous halo. A hatch opened on one side of the object, and a group of smallish creatures emerged from it. The beings moved towards the kitchen garden of Lorenzini’s house---showing no signs of indecision, as if they were familiar with the location. Lorenzini was taken aback by what he saw, but he retreated to the house door. From there, nearly hidden from sight, he got a look at the very small beings wearing a metal diving suit like uniforms that covered even their faces. The creatures spoke with one another in low pitched voices, paying no care to the farmer. They approached the rabbit hutch and seemed interested in the rabbits within. Lorenzini interpreted their gestures as indicative of their intent to carry all the rabbits away. Lorenzini went into the house, retrieved a rifle, went back outside and aimed the rifle at the creatures. He pulled the trigger, but the rifle did not fire. Lorenzini attempted once more, but he was still unsuccessful. At this point he had to drop the rifle, because it had become too heavy to hold. He became frightened and tried to shout---however, he was unable to accomplish even this. The farmer observed the creatures seizing all the rabbits, returning to the object and then entering it. The cigar-shaped craft took off very rapidly in the direction of Avenza, leaving in its wake a very bright trail, even more intense than the halo that had surrounded the object while it was on the ground. Lorenzini managed to pick up the rifle and to fire it successfully, but the object was already long gone. Although in shock Lorenzini called out to some people, to whom he pointed out the emptied rabbit hutch.


Gustavo Gonzalez, Jose Ponce. Ponce saw 2 others emerging from the bushes with soil in their hands. They jumped up into the sphere, and shone a blinding light at Gonzalez.


Farmer Olmira da Costa e Rosa was cultivating his crops of French beans and maize at this place, 2 ½ miles from Venancio Aires, when he heard something ‘like a sewing machine’, and animals in a nearby field panicked. He then saw an object, shaped like a bowl or explorer’s hat, cream colored and enveloped in a smoky haze. It was hovering just off the ground, and three strange looking men were there, one inside the craft, one examining a barbed-wire fence, and one close to the farmer. In astonishment the farmer dropped his hoe, and the man smiled, approached, picked up the hoe, examined it carefully and handed it back to him. He then bent down plucked a few plants and walked back towards the machine, with the others. The craft rose slowly to about thirty feet, then accelerated, and flashed away towards the west at high speed. The farmer, almost completely illiterate, had never heard of ‘flying saucers’. He was able to study these men at close range and in great detail. They were of medium height, broad-shouldered, with long blond hair blowing in the wind. With their extremely pale skin and slanted eyes, they were not normal looking by Earth standards. Their clothing consisted of light brown coverall garments fastened to their shoes, which were heelless. He concluded that they must be aviators from some foreign country.

The farmer Pedro Morais heard a commotion among his fowls and looking around for a hawk, beheld an object ‘that had a bottom like an enormous polished brass kettle’. It was hovering, with an oscillating motion, and making a noise like a sewing machine. Its upper part ‘looked like the hood of a jeep’. In a nearby cultivated field he next noticed two small human shaped figures. He could see no faces, for they seemed to be enveloped in a kind of yellow sack from head to toe. Indignant at this trespass on his crops, he headed for them. One of them began to run towards him, while the other raised his arm in what seemed to be a warning gesture to keep away. One of them then knelt down and plucked a tobacco plant from the ground, and both entered the craft, which vanished from sight in a few seconds.
The farmer, totally illiterate, had never heard of flying saucers or science fiction, and thought the creatures were ghosts. When told that the Brazilian government was anxious to get one of these little men dead or alive he vowed he would shoot one if he got the chance.

The witness, fishing in a river near his home, saw an unusual craft land a few hundred feet away. His dog began to howl. Through the telescopic sight of his gun he could see a small sphere revolving around a larger one, which hovered 6 ft above the ground. At the bottom was a 3-ball landing gear. 3 occupants, human looking but quite small, emerged & came down to the ground; they were agile, with rapid movements. One held a luminous basket, the other a metal tube with a cone shaped end; with those they collected calcareous material from the river’s edge, sucking it up into the tube & discharging it into the basket. They then got back into the object, which took off at high speed. The witness found square holes in the ground.

Gary T. Wilcox. Suddenly, however, two small humanoids appeared standing next to the craft. They were dressed in seamless uniforms with hoods covering their faces. Each carried a tray that appeared to be heaped full of earth that had been removed from his field.


Dario Anhaua Filho. The small figures picked up twigs and branches, and appeared to examine a mare which was standing by the fence.

A motorist saw a glowing object overhead, suddenly his car engine stalled, and a smaller circular metallic object landed besides the road. His car radio, which had been turned off, began to broadcast in a strange language. A tiny metallic robot like figure appeared in the doorway of the object. It then dug up some dirt and placed it inside the craft. The doorway then closed, the object then turned a bright red color and rose into the sky emitting a whirring sound. It appeared to join the large glowing craft overhead.

The main witness along with her mother and 2 of her friends were driving to the village of Collage. As she sat in the back seat she looked out the window to her right and noticed a bright shiny object, very large. She thought that if you were not looking in that direction you never would have seen it. It was saucer shaped with a dome on top, along side of it on the left was a very tall person dressed in an outfit which glowed the same as the ship, another similar figure was walking towards the road (the craft was about 30 meters away from fence line, which was 5 meters from the road) and another one was standing on the right side of the object near a dead tree, all had the same clothing on and helmets with black visors. She described the aliens as being very tall, approximate 8 ft in height. As the car drove by the witness noticed that they seemed to be collecting items from the ground. She also noticed that the one walking towards the road seemed to have turned his helmet and look at the vehicle as it drove off. The witness never did tell anyone else in the car what she had seen.

Steve Cleveland, a carnival worker from Eau Claire, called radio station WLS in Chicago to report that as he had been sitting on his suitcase outside of Fort Atkinson, hoping to hitch a ride to Eau Clare, he had seen "a huge ship" come down in a nearby field, out of which came two beings about 5 ft tall. They took some samples, & got back in the object, which then lifted off. He said he watched the incident for 15 minutes.

George O'Barski. Eight to ten 3'/i-ft.-tall beings with dark garb, helmets, emerged from underside of low hovering disc with lighted windows, took samples from ground.


Antoine Severin. Four 1- to 1.2-meter-tall beings, metallic white garb, helmets, from domed disc with portholes, directed light beam at witness, who felt a force pulling him, later had headaches and impaired vision; beings poked in ground as if gathering samples.


Local villagers reported seeing an object come down to the ground, then they saw two or three small figures come out from under it and get something off the ground. The light from the object was as bright as the sun. After the object left, marks were found on the ground.

Sir Eric Gairy: Prime Minister of Grenada. The reef mentioned above is located to the northeast of the island of Grenada

The fact that Sir Eric said that one of the alien metal boxes that was found on the beach with the alien body contained specimens of fish and sea plant life does bring to mind the possibility that the alien met with a disaster after visiting this unique marine reef. Or maybe he was part of a expedition to restock the reef.

A luminous globe shaped craft landed in a wooded area near a police station. Four humanoids emerged from the object. These were described as 1.45 meters in height, very large heads, as in proportion to their bodies, short arms, and huge staring eyes. They wore tight fitting metallic objects. The humanoids collected ground samples and vegetation and then re-entered the object, which took off at high speed.

Silvia Bedoya. These were described as 3 feet, 3 inches tall, with large oversized heads, long spindly arms and short bandy legs. They wore gunmetal gray helmets and matching one-piece coveralls. The humanoids took out transparent containers and, ignoring the shepherds, collected many samples, like soil, grass, mountain weeds, & water from the nearby river. Soon the humanoids entered the large object and all the objects shot away into space @ high speed.


A witness encountered a humming silver disc-shaped object on the ground. Three short beings only 30 cm tall were seen next to the object. The beings wore silvery-white inflated suits, with round helmets and appeared to be collecting items from the ground around the object. Ground traces and electro-magnetic effects were reported. No other information.

Several meters from the disk three entities appeared to be taking soil samples. One of the aliens who was apparently the leader was about 2 meters in height and was standing apart from the other two, which were much shorter than he was and were actually collecting the samples. The humanoids were bending down in ways utterly impossible for normal humans; their bodies appear to be much flexible.

Odete Fortini. On the center of the object a door opened and two humanoids about 1 meter in height stepped out. They seemed to be interested on the vegetation around the object. After a few minutes of investigating the area they re-entered the object, which became bright again and left at high speed.


Five geography students. Suddenly a small door opened and two short humanoids came out. The object and the humanoids were about 200 meters away from the witnesses. The little men seemed to be collecting ground samples when they became aware of the witnesses presence. They ignored the witnesses and after several minutes reboarded the object, which took off at high speed. Deep ground traces were found at the landing site.

As we stood there in total shock, My brother next to me expressing his disbelief, we saw two strange looking "Men" appear from around the object. They at first didn't notice us, they were busy running around and gathering objects from the ground, from the trees. They didn't seem to notice us at first. They looked to be about the size of my oldest nephew, about 4 feet tall, but they looked very skinny, like they had no meat on their bones. Their heads were large and their arms were long, skinny and hung down around their knee's.
