The  UFO Chronology

Jan. 1, 2001; Nort Island, New Zealand
Midnite+. Several motorists reported sighting five discs flying along the western shore of North Island, New Zealand near New Plymouth. One of the UFOs paced a car, hovering 100 feet overhead of the vehicle, causing radio static. The UFO changed color from orange to violet as it flew. After several minutes the UFOs formed into a linear formation and flew off rapidly to the south. A silent orange object was videotaped over Deception Bay, Queensland, Australia that evening, moving from the southeast to the northwest. The video appears to show a dozen windows on the object. (Sources: UFO Magazine (USA), April 2001, p. 20; Sheryl Gottschall, UFO Research Queensland website. Cat: 2,3,8).

Jan. 2, 2001; Corralito, Argentina
Early Morning. ­ A bright round light approached a family traveling in a car on a road. The UFO halted, backed up, rose to the height of some power lines parallel to the road, and then paced the car. It responded to the flashing of the car headlights by “turning off.” A local power failure was reported at the same time. (Source: UFO Magazine (USA), April 2001, p. 20, citing Filer’s Files.

Night. A man in Salmon Arm awoke to a noise outside his door late at night and saw a blue glow enter his bedroom. He next heard a loud buzzing sound, and then his entire body went completely tingly and numb and he was overcome by an intense sensation of fear. He found himself unable to move or speak. At this point he noticed two short shadowy figures that had appeared, almost dancing around his bed, while he was attempting to move. He managed to blurt out "get out" and the figures and the light vanished. (Sources: Geoff Dittman, Canadian UFO Survey 2001, case 105; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2001, citing UFOBC.

Rosales, 2001 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Mystery Cat: 7 but no UFO reported).

May 2, 2001; Rosario, Argentina
2:00 AM. A woman, "M" found herself being lifted into a whirlwind, presumably from her bedroom, but she doesn't know how she got outdoors. She was oriented vertically as she floated upwards, and was able to move her arms and look around as she did so. She approached a powerful light that seemed to emanate from a hole in the sky. She then noticed three humanoids floating next to her, who accompany her through the orifice. Looking down, she could see the roof of her house, then watched as the house became smaller, and then the city of Rosario itself faded into the distance. As she continued to ascend into the sky she fell asleep, but an intense cold wave woke her up and she heard what sounded like a metallic hatch closing. She noticed she had entered a dark room through a hexagonal opening. As her eyesight adjusted noticed that she was in an immense room with about 20 floating cots, each with a human figure on them. To her right she noticed her 45-year-old sister asleep on one of the cots. She also recalled seeing a black skinned man lying about 4 cots away. In the background she could hear a low steady snoring sound. She began to hear what appeared to be low "voices" that spoke very quickly among themselves. Almost at the same time three humanoids approached her. They were about 1.60 meters tall, very thin, with elongated hairless heads, two small holes for noses, and cat-like eyes that glowed a bluish-gray color. Their hands had three large fingers connected by a membrane and a separate finger or thumb. Their bodies were of a beige-pale color and appeared very flexible, almost gelatinous. They possessed small mouths and what appeared to be a small protuberance on top of their heads. She sensed there were both females and males present but could not see any sexual features. At this point she sensed desperation from the beings as if their time was short because their species was unable to reproduce. One of the beings seemed to measure her cranium with a thin tube about 30 cm in length that emitted a beam of light from the tip. As the tube or bar was passed over her head she felt a slight sensation of warmth. She also sensed that the aliens had chosen Earth for a reproduction staging area, acquiring the necessary materials, which were human genetic materials from both genders. She could hear other thoughts or speech in her mind, and felt that the beings talked about her and about her knowledge. At this point another one of the beings seemed to measure her face from ear to ear at the same time telling her via telepathy that everything was going to be fine. The witness felt that the aliens needed human bodies as some kind of breeding "container" for their own survival purposes. She became terrified as the three humanoids approached her to touch her. She asked them if they are spiritual beings and they answer yes, but she felt it was only an attempt to manipulate her mind. One of the humanoids attempted to touch her breasts but she pushed his arm aside and noticed that it had a gummy texture with no apparent bone structure. On her descent back to her home she remembered seeing images of famous persons flash around her, including John F. Kennedy, Adolph Hitler, and Judy Garland. She woke up in her bed with her concerned husband attempting to calm her down. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 2001 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Horacio Roberto, Nuevos Tiempos, Argentina. Cat: 7).
