He communicated telepathically and by sign language, and seemed interested/concerned about bombs and radiation. His other friends witnessed this from a distance, and signed an notarized statement to prove it. It goes on from there,with more visitations.

Washington, D.C. Radar picked up a flight or squad-whatever you call it-of 8 UFO's around the Washington area. They were doing 100-130 miles an hour, then would suddenly accelerate to 'fantastically high speeds." One of these was logged at 7000 miles an hour. Some of these reported over the White House and the Capitol building. There were three separate radar installations and they showed on all three, plus visual sightings and commercial aircraft. One of them went over Andrews AFB, and a radar operator made a visual sighting, describing it as "huge fiery orange sphere" hovering in the sky. (This must have been a brown trousers moment, with the nasty possibility of little green men from Mars blowing the White House to pieces, like in millions of pulp comic books). I'm not sure what the 'official' Air Force explanation for this was. Late at night, July 19, 1952. One week later, they came back. 10:30 p.m. radar picked up several slow moving UFO's. They scrambled jets, but it evidently took a while for them to get in the air. The UFO's vanished as the jets arrived in the area. The jets went back to base. The UFO's then came back. The jets came back..and this time the UFO's and planes played tag. The planes would close, and see a 'strange light.' The UFO's would zip away before they could get closer. The Air Force implied that this was the result of reflected light from temperature inversions. July 26, 1952.

Ida Rollins believes it is a sign from God, a message of hope for one of the poorest areas in town. 1994, don't know if this is ongoing or not.
St. Petersburg: Mrs. Mary Reeser spontaneously combused here July 1, 1951. When discovered, she was basically ashes, except for a few charred body parts.

Chicago, Field Natural History Museum: Surrounded by nice green grass, it has a bare spot. Legend has it that a former assistant curator felt feverish and went outside to lay down in the cool grass. He then suffered a heart attack (which he survived.) For some reason, no grass will continue to grow on the spot he had the attack, even when replaced with sod.

(The prowler ran off and escaped). Fine, so far. Then the newspapers picked up the story. Attacks continued..more people reported this. Eventually, the police started dismissing reported attacks as false alarms. It got so bad that citizens armed themselves and prowled the streets at night. The police chief stated during a September 12th press conference they'd found absolutely no evidence to support stories that have been told. Hysteria must be blamed for such seemingly accurate accounts of supposed victims." But what was it really?

Apparently, he was flying without oxygen. Did his plane get attacked by the UFO? Did he pass out from lack of oxygen? I don't know how the Air Force explained the crash. But The Air Force explained the sighting as either the planet Venus, or a weather balloon. (Oh, sure. Three pilots not being able to identify Venus? Or a weather balloon, for that matter.)

Cincinnati: A house here (440 Boal St.) was rained on by something that was described as resembling 'watery blood except that it was oily."

The witness, who was outside during this, noticed his hands starting burning where this stuff had touched him. He went inside and washed, and when he came back out the cloud was gone and the rain had stopped. All his peach trees died in a short time, and grass where this stuff had fallen also died.

The officer checked a neighbors home. No dots. No splatters. The next suspicion: sewage from an airplane passing overhead.

The pilot turned back about 120 miles north, due to fuel problems. The UFO followed him back, at a respectable distance.

They grabbed a different dog, walked through the side of the UFO which took off, silently. A block of grass 5 X 24' was pressed down where it had been. See "Kearny, Nebraska" where a similar thing took place the day before-this sighting hadn't been reported in the papers, so the kid couldn't have known about it. November 6, 1957.
Gallatin: David Lang disappeared in full view of his family and a friend. He was walking across a field and vanished, while his family and a friend watched. They ran to see what happened to him, but he was gone. The ground was hard and when examined, there were no holes for him to have fallen into. After a long search, his family gave up. Several months later, his 12 year-old daughter was walking across the field, and noticed a circle of grass in a twenty foot circle was coarse and rank, and the cows wouldn't eat the grass there. The daughter impulsively cried "Father, are you around?" and heard "Help!" from what sounded like a distance. She ran back to the house and got her mother, and they searched. They were still unable to determine where he was. They went back, day after day, calling and searching.

Houston: A winged man was seen in a tree on June 18, 1953.

San Antonio: Another pterodactyl-type sighting on February 24, 1976.
Saratoga: Saratoga Lights on Bragg Road, 8 mile stretch: a glowing ball of light; it moves around then disappears and may appear in front or behind you.

Fort Monroe: Several hauntings. Fort Monroe has been "visited" by such presidential poltergeists as Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. The ghost of former SGM Edgar Allan Poe is said to occasionally visit. The White Lady is evidently the most commonly sighted apparition. During the Civil War she and her husband, a captain, lived in one of the houses here. The White Lady took a lover; the husband found out and shot her. Apparently, she's still wandering around looking for her lover.

He had some sort of device to manipulate the wings on his chest. He flew in a upright position. January 6, 1948. (see also Longview)
Grand Coulee area: A large hole 2 feet deep was found, with a plug of earth standing up about 75 feet away. The earth removed from this hole weighted about 3 tons, and no one was doing any work, digging, etc. to provide a logical explanation. October 1984.
Greenwater: This has got to be bogus..but here goes. A couple were camping when they claim they were attacked at night by a bear-like creature about 8 feet tall. It had curly brown hair and was smelly. We could write this off as a Bigfoot or misidentified actual bear, but they claim it talked to them in a high pitched non-human sounding voice if they had permission to camp there and asked their names! The couple told it they had permission to camp. I guess this thing didn't believe them, as it started throwing rocks, after telling them to leave. OKÖ July 6, 1985.
Hoquiam: Mrs. Betty Satlow died of carbon monoxide poisoning and she was duly taken to the mortuary. The next day her body began to burn inside her coffin (without the usual assistance from the mortuary). December 7, 1973. (See Pontiac, MI).

Lummi Island: A UFO splashed into the ocean, divers found something on the bottom, but it disappeared before it could be checked out. December 31, 1984.

Seattle: A Coast Guard member saw a UFO near Seattle on July 4, 1947. Definitely a great year for UFO sightings.

Strait of Juan De Fuca: Two witnesses (in two different places) near Port Angeles, saw a large flaming something fall into the ocean. March 9, 1960.
Tacoma: A 5 pound steel ball fell from the sky on August 1951.
Yakima Reservation: This is a huge area, but somewhere in it ghost lights appear. Rather odd ones, too. Described as "a luminous object that had a teardrop shape, with the small end pointing up. It was brilliantly white in the center, surounded by a fluorescent tan or light orange halo. The object's most awe-inspiring feature was a mouselike tail or antenna protruding from the small end. It was a long as the object itself, and was segmented into red, blue, green and white which was constantly changing brilliancy and hue." Well, OK! Not sure if this is continuing or not, although reportedly, sighting of this dropped in frequency after 1986.
Flatwoods: An entity, with a blood-red face, greenish-orange eyes and 10-15 feet tall was seen near a large globe-likeUFO here. The entity floated towards the witnesses, who understandably, ran. September 12, 1952.
Parkersburg: Well, it must have some ghosts. It has a ghost tour: http://www.wirefire.com/sheppard/
Wharn Cliff and Beech Creek: Several houses were burned to the ground in mysterious fires. Flames would shoot out of outlets, even when the power was cut off to the house. No arson was discovered, and no explanation, either. (See Odon, IN)
Barron: A 13 year-old boy was walking along a road at night and saw 20 little men travelling in single file towards him. They all were bald, with white skin, and wore something that sounds like lederhosen. They walked by, ignoring the boy. 1919.
Manitowoc: A 21 1/2 pound piece of steel fell from the sky. It showed signs of passing through the earth's atmosphere at a high rate of speed. No one knows if it's a piece of satellite or what. September, 1962.
Manitowoc: A 40" long alligator was caught on the banks of a nearby river in November 1978.
Milwaukee: A 50 lb. piece of metal fell from the sky on August 22, 1974.
Milwaukee: Jeffrey Dahmer disgraced the City of Milwaukee at 924 N. 25th Street #213.He was a serial killer, for those who don't recognize the name. (However, I believe the apartment building he lived in has since been demolished.)
Oshkosh: Grand Opera House: Footsteps were heard, ghosts seen in the 1970's and 1980's.
Plainfield: Ed Gein (the inspiration for "Psycho") lived on a farm 4-5 miles south of town. I believe the farm was torched, so there's probably nothing left to see.
Richmond: A kangaroo was seen in a woman's yard. A local circus was quizzed about it, but they said they didn't have one. 1899.

Snow King Mt. Two men were chased off the mountain by a 12' Bigfoot on June 12, 1980.
Teton Forest: Students saw a "bear" and shot it, then found it was a 7' tall hairy, human-like creature.(so they LEFT THE CORPSE!). Why do people do stuff like this when everyone's been looking for definite physical evidence of Bigfoot? December 1967.
Yakima Valley Highway: Thousands of belivers flocked to an ordinary traffic sign here hoping to catch a glimpse of an image of the Virgin Mary. "It shows like the figure of the Virgin Mary," a witness reported. The sighting was first reported around 4 p.m. Saturday on the sign at the intersection of state Route 241 and Yakima Valley Highway. 1997-I have no idea if this is still appearing.
