1975-01-05; Brownstown, IL
On the afternoon of January 5, 1975, 14 year old [ name removed per request ] was tramping through a wooded area on his father's farm some three miles south of town in that rural neighborhood. He had his camera along hoping to get some nature pictures, and had taken one of a clump of flowers fairly close and was looking for more. It was near mid-afternoon at the time when he heard a sudden sound like a big electric motor. He turned in the direction it was coming from and was astonished to see a dark disc form moving slowly, fading out to a dark fuzzy haze around its edges. When he overcame his initial surprise at its appearance he remembered his camera and started snapping photographs as fast as he could in his fumbling excitement. It hovered only a moment and then sped off in a westerly direction. In the short time it was present he managed to get five pictures on film.
He said "I had an interesting visit from 2 gentlemen (something akin to MIB?) who took possession of my negatives and they were never returned."

1975-03-18; Waterdown, Ontario, Canada
At 1:30pm on March 18, 1975, 19 year old Patric McCarthy had gone to an abandoned quarry to try to photograph some wild birds. He had poked around in the desolate area for some time and was just starting to walk back when suddenly he saw a massive circular object in the sky. With camera in hand he started taking pictures as fast as he could.
You showed a siting by Pat McCarthy. I remember this because he was a friend of mine and I remember the day it happened to him. The place he saw the siting was very close to where I used to live as a child and there is phenomena around that area. I have seen it. I was looking him up on the web when I came across the picture that he took and I remember how scared he was about what he saw there at the quarry. It was years ago (75). He was a runner then and I believe wanted to be in something like the Boston Marathon and would run long distances. I believe that what he saw was real. I know. I hope he is okay today since I have not seen him in years.

1975-05-??; Kyoto City, Japan
In May of 1975, the president of a local company snapped a picture of his young daughter in the backyard of his home in Kyoto City. When the prints came back from the developer, he was surprised to see on one print, above the girl's head, a dim greenish ball of light surrounded by a dimmer halo in the sky.

1975-06-12; Berg / Rumlikon, Switzerland
In the morning of June 12, 1975, Eduard J. Meier was telepathically alerted and guided to another contact, again being advised that his camera would be permitted. This time he was led around on his moped for over an hour, finally stopping on a dirt service road beyond a field along the paved road from Theilingen to Rumlikon, Between Berg and Rumlikon. He was carrying a loaned 8mm movie camera and tripod as well as his 35mm camera and another 35mm belonging to a friend, because his own camera still had a jammed focus adjustment and a broken viewer. He set up the tripod and mounted the movie camera on it. He readied the 35mm cameras and laid them out in readiness. Then he spotted the spacecraft approaching in the haze in the far distance. After taking a picture of the object he noticed another identical ship higher in the sky, evidently to protect the one posing at low altitude.
1975-07-21; Solnechnogorsk, Russia
Painting a landscape in a pasture outside of Solnechnogorsk, Comrade Malichev was startled when he felt a strange hand touching his shoulder. Malichev turned to face his visitor, and found three strangely clad beings, two males and a female, standing in front of a saucer shaped craft. They telepathically asked him if he wanted to join them on their journey, finding him uniquely well- balanced for a human. Comrade Malichev declined and watched them enter their craft which was now metamorphosing rapidly into different shapes. Minutes after the craft had ascended, Malichev again found himself in contact with the beings. This time the painter decided to join them. He was taken to a planet with three moons. As well, the man remembers being observed for the duration of the flight. At one point, Comrade Malichev met his deceased best friend who, along with the aliens, showed him the three stages of human development. Comrade Malichev has undergone many psychological and physical tests subsequent to the abduction.

At 5:05am on July 23, 1975, M. Jean Bonnet observed and photographed a radiant luminous orange colored capsule flying at a relatively low altitude over the countryside. This object was of the same shape, proportion, and almost the same orange color as a similar object photographed over Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 30, 1975. Bonnet knew nothing of the Argentine photos taken only a few weeks before.
1975-07-26; Saas Fe, Switzerland
Members of a hunting party spotted this craft hovering low near the ground. It moved almost silently through the surrounding trees. Fortunately, one member was able to snap this photograph of the object

1975-09-03; Nagoay City, Aichi, Japan
At 2:30pm on September 3, 1975, 12 year old Hirohito Tanaka was doing his homework in the living room of his house in Nagoya City. He happened to look up and out the big picture window and saw something flying high in the sky above the scattered clouds that day. Looking closer, he could see that it was a very unusual flying machine, dark and cigar-shaped. He obtained a camera and quickly snapped 8 photographs of the cylindrical ship that was launching and recovering smaller circular domed disc-shaped machines, some of which came down and flew low over the city.
1975-09-12; Nagoay City, Aichi, Japan
At 1:30pm on September 12, 1975, and only nine days after photographing the carrier ship, Hirohito Tanaka saw the small ships in the sky over his city again. It was just after lunch when he happened to look outside and saw the small disc-shaped flying objects again flitting about and performing their now familiar falling-leaf maneuver. There were seven of them in the southwest sky and they were disc-shaped with a raised dome on top.
1975-10-04; Nagoay City, Aichi, Japan
At 2:00pm on October 4, 1975, high school student Hirohito Tanaka watched a small bell-shaped flying object descend to near ground level in a "falling-leaf" kind of motion. It left a trail of white vapor or exhaust in its wake as it flew. Near the ground it steadied, levelled off, and flew away horizontally until it was out of sight. He grabbed his camera and ran to the balcony where he managed to snap several black and white photographs of the ship. When the white trail drifted to the ground it was found to consist of spider-wep-like filiamentary substance that evaporated away in a few minutes. The white material seemed to be ejected from the top part of the small ship.
On the 5th November 1975 Mike Rogers and his crew of 6 forestry workers were travelling back in their truck from work to the forest of Heber, Arizona when Alan Dalis, one of the crew members spotted a large glow coming from above a group of trees.
As they got closer they noticed a disk hovering about 20 feet above the ground. They stopped the truck to take a closer look when one of the crew jumped out to get an even closer look . Travis Walton was approaching the object when it started to make a strange noise and before the rest of the crew could do anything a large beam of light struck Travis which sent him tumbling backwards.
At this point Mike Rodgers, the driver, panicked and drove the truck away. After a short distance the men forced Mike to drive back to collect their fellow worker. When they returned there was no sign of the object or of Travis.
A police investigation started as soon as the men reported what had happened, and an extensive search was carried out of the abduction area. Many people believed that the men had murdered Travis and used the UFO as a cover story.
The men requested that they take a lie detector test to try and clear their names. The first polygraph test was inconclusive, however, a second, indicated that they were telling the truth about what they had witnessed.
On November 10th, 5 days after the abduction, Travis's brother-in-law received a phone call from Travis and they went to pick him up a few miles outside of Heber. When they found him he was naked, distraught and confused.
Soon afterwards he began to recall the events of the past few days. He told a story of aliens who were about 5 feet tall with domed hairless heads, large eyes, tiny ears and nose, and a slit for a mouth who performed various 'experiments' on him.
He also reported many other strange events such as seeing an 'almost' human entity who showed him around but did not answer his questions, and also of a control room where he could see through the exterior of the craft a gaze at the stars.
A film was produced called 'Fire in the Sky' which dramatised the above events. Since the film Travis has passed 2 more lie-detector test, but has refused to be hypnotically regressed as he fears it will bring out too many disturbing memories.
1975-12-08; Nagoay City, Aichi, Japan
At 2:00pm on December 8, 1975, Hirohito Tanaka saw a small circular craft with a raised dome on top as it flew southwest of his home. The ship had an under-carriage consisting of three hemispherical protrusions mounted 120 degrees apart on the bottom surface of the vehicle.
1976-03-28; Bachtelhornli-Unterbachtel, Switzerland
On March 28th, 1976 at 9:38am, this photograph was taken in Bachtelhornli-Unterbachtel, Switzerland. The ship is a seven meter third variation of silvery white color accompanied by two smaller four meter diameter drones. Eduard Meier took the pictures as the UFOs flew in a three ship formation. He captured more than thirty photographs in this series. Note the ship beyond the twig in the right foreground.
A seven meter mothership with two remote controlled drone ships in tow flies over the Fischenthal Valley east of Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Eduard Meier snapped more than 70 color photos of these three ships during this long observational event.
1976-04-09; Nagoay City, Aichi, Japan
At 2:00pm on April 9, 1976, Hirohito Tanaka saw the small dark circular flying object with the raised dome in the center. It was making a low pass over the roof of his next door neighbor's house. Grabbing his Instamatic 126, he ran to the balcony and shot seven pictures in rapid succession. The domed disc was moving in zig-zag and falling-leaf fashion as it flew about in the near sky. It was dark colored and he could not see much detail, only noting its strange movements, well aware that no airplane known to him could perform such maneuvers.
1976-05-09; Pehuenco Beach, BsAs, Argentina
At 6:30pm on May 9, 1976, Ms. Silvia Marie Weber was walking along Pehuenco Beach in Buenos Aires Province, about 60 kilometers northeast of Bahia Blanca, when she saw a number of people watching an unusual luminous yellow-orange capsule-shaped object flying slowly above the surf in the late afternoon sky. She went and got her camera and returned in time to snap one color photograph of the object before it flew away.
1976-05-12; Paso Fondo, Brazil

This silvery metallic ship can barely be seen in this photograph of a radiant ball of light taken by Guido Moosbrugger on the night of June 12, 1976.
1976-07-11, Diamante, Entre Rios, Argentina
At 10:00am on July 11, 1976, Sr. Eduardo Gizzi and his family, driving their automobile from Victoria to Diamante, noticed a very strange flying object approaching at low altitude from the West. At first they thought it was a helicopter because of its compact appearance and low-level altitude, but as it came closer and they could see it in better perspective, they could see that it had no rotor on top and was not shaped like a helicopter. The object took up a position to their right and for some 15 or 20 seconds paralleled the Gizzy automobile. This allowed the witness to take one good color photograph of the flying craft without stopping the automobile.
1976-11-??; S. Herwang, Indonesia
At 2:00pm in November of 1976, Mr. Tony Hartono, an engineer, had taken photographs of the off- shore oil rig his company ARCO Indonesia was building in order to illustrate his progress report. He had one left and was standing on a platform facing the sea, wondering what else he could shoot to finish the film roll. Suddenly his attention was attracted to a little dark speck in the sky which was growing larger as it approached. It became a yellowish color as it continued its approach and came quite near the launch he was in. He used his last shot to capture this object on film.
1976-12-23; Balcarce, Argentina

1977-05-12; Phoenix, AZ
At 12:00pm on May 12, 1977, a UFO descended slowly as Lee Elders snapped two photos, with his Olympus CM-1 w/75-160mm zoom lens and 2X adapter. It began to ascend again, never changing shape or density as it moved.
1977-05-28; Alberti, Argentina
At 5:45pm on May 28, 1977, a Comodoro in the Argentine Air Force, was driving his automobile about 20 kilometers south of Alberti in the Province of Buenos Aires. His son was riding along with him. The teenage boy first spotted the brightly luminous orange-colored object flying slowly from north to south beneath the low overcast clouds. The father tried to see the object as his son made him aware of it, and finally stopped the car to try to see better. He got out with his camera, a Practika Pentacon 35mm hand-held model with a 50mm lens attached. They could clearly see the object moving along under the low clouds. Before the father was able to take the first picture, two brightly luminous yellow-white objects came out of the larger capsule-shaped "mother-ship" and started to fly around it. The Comodoro tried to snap pictures as fast as he could, but almost immediately after launching the smaller craft, the larger ship disappeared into the clouds above followed in quick order by the smaller objects.
1977-06-21; Centeno, Santa Fe, Argentina
At 2:00pm on June 21, 1977, a witness who declines identification snapped a color photograph of a shiny circular disc-shaped metallic flying object that had a high raised cupola on its top side. It was flying high above the trees, and above the lower scattered puffy white cloud level, but well below a higher cirrus layer of thin clouds. The brushed-silver disc had a smooth unbroken lower surface and a three-tiered dome. The lower part of the dome had a red-orange color, with a light yellow colored part above that which was topped by a reddish-gold knob at the uppermost level. No seams, joints, ports or projections of any kind marred the unbroken finish of the shiny craft.
1977-06-22; Aichi, Japan
Mr. Yukio Ishida, 39, a company president from the vicinity of Kozakai-cho, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, was driving his car along the bank of the Toyokawa Canal, when suddenly he noticed a strange object flying in the sky beyond the opposite bank of the canal. It was then about 11:30am. He was astonished and trembling with excitement, he stopped the car and got out with his camera. He readied it and succeeded in taking 10 good photographs of the object before it flew away.
1977-07-11; Florida, Uruguay
At about 3:30pm on July 11th 1977, Sr. Hector Rufino Delgado, 29, a horticulturist, was working in his greenhouse at the rear of his home in Florida, Uruguay. It was a magnificent day with an almost clear blue sky, and the temperature, in spite of the winter season, was almost spring-like. A light breeze was blowing in from the east. Suddenly, Sr. Delgado heard a high pitched humming sound, "Something like that produced by an electric motor, or a ventilator." He nevertheless paid little attention to the noise and continued with his work. The humming increased in intensity, but a few seconds later it decreased until it was almost imperceptible. In less than a minute, the humming came back to audible level again and increased once more. This time its tone was a little sharper. "It was not constant, but its intensity increased and decreased perceptibly, and the same with the tone," said Sr. Delgado. The witness began to wonder about the possible origin of the sound. He laid down the tools he was using and went to the doorway to look out. He saw, some 200m from his position and no more than 50m above the ground, a silver disc-shaped object moving smoothly, suspended in the air. "I was slow to react; never had the thought occurred to me that I might encounter a thing like this... but there it was, swinging gently as it balanced itself in the air a few meters above the ground," assured the witness. After a few moments of indecision, Rufino ran to the house to get his camera. He grabbed the camera and raced back, fearing the strange object might leave. "I ran as fast as I was able. When I was looking for my camera in my house, I wondered if it would really be worth while to photograph the object, or whether it would be there when I came out of the house and got back. However from the doorway of my house, I saw it again, no longer suspended motionless in the air, but moving very slowly toward the south." He barely arrived back out at the greenhouse when he stopped to take a picture, but he saw that some trees would be in the way. He ran to a better location. "When I took the first photograph the UFO was still moving very slowly toward the south, but I had barely snapped it when the object drastically altered its velocity and trajectory and commenced some climbing maneuvers as it increased its elevation above the ground," declared the witness.
This is photograph number two of seven pictures taken by Sr. Hector Rufino Delgado as a silvery metallic disc-shaped object flew around his home and above his greenhouse. The sighting lasted a number of minutes before the ship flew away.
A surprised reporter from one of the larger Uruguayan cities photographed this UFO as it circled his position.
1977-07-11; Wurzburg, Germany
At around midday on the 11th of July, 1977, Herr Dieter Croll was walking through a country area near Wurzburg when he suddenly spotted a shiny, silver metallic looking object flying in the clear blue sky. The flying machine looked like a thick disc with full rounded rim edges. It was flat on the bottom and had a curved dome with a prominent cupola on top. The cupola was wide and nearly flat at its top. The whole thing appeared opaque and solid, and it looked as though it could have been made in one piece. It had no visible windows, ports, or protrusions breaking its smooth contours. Its finish was highly reflective, like polished chrome or a mirror. The disc was seven to 10m in diameter and was moving in and out of scattered small white clouds with bases at between 3,000 and 4,000ft above the ground. The wind was light and the atmosphere clear of haze and smoke. Dieter Croll prepared his camera and snapped six good photographs of the object as he watched it move in the sky above him.
1977-07-26; Maldonado, Uruguay
At 10:30am on July 26, 1977, Sergio Ottamendi, a 32 year old architect living in Punta del Norte, married, father of two, was driving his Opel K 180 along a secondary road between the localities of Maldonado and San Carlos, some 20 kilometers apart, headed toward San Carlos. When he was about 4 kilometers north of Maldonado, the automobile engine began to falter and lose power, which began to worry Mr. Ottamendi. Then the engine began to run a little better and Mr. Ottamendi commenced to relax. He continued toward San Carlos, but he had gone less than two kilometers more when his engine again started losing power. After going about 200 more meters the engine completely quit. After getting out of the car to take a look under the hood he looked up in the sky and to his surprise saw a silvery-gold metallic color, circular object. After remembering his camera in the car he grabbed it and began taking pictures.
A vacationer in Maldonado photographed this object. The people of the town had come to accept the object as a matter of course. They had become accustomed to over flights like this one.
