Jan. 22, 2003 - The witness had just left work and was driving home when he reached a place by a small lake in Prospect, Connecticut at 10:03 p.m. He noticed someone walking along the road so he flashed on his high beams. He then saw the figure walk out from the side of the road, stop in the center for a second, then continue across. It was grayish in color and it was walking on two legs, but it ambulated like an ape walks, swaying as it walked erect. The feet were small with brownish-black areas on the side. When it reached the other side it stopped and looked at the witness, waving its skinny arms. Lights appeared behind it. The man described the creature as around six feet tall, with large, foot-long pointy ears. The eyes were dark black with no apparent nose. Although the weather was cold, the witness did not see any condensed breath come from its small mouth. The mouth had a red silver strip on top. As the witness drove by he looked back to see the creature still standing by the road, and the woods behind the creature suddenly lit up like day. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

Jan. 24, 2003 - At 6:13 p.m. a black equilateral triangle with three glowing white dome lights on the tips of its apexes, plus a small red blinking light and a small constant red light was sighted over Kingston, Ontario by a woman.

Jan. 26, 2003 - Anatoly Yurevich awoke in the middle of the night in Karaganda, Kazakhstan to the sounds of footsteps, then saw a two foot tall creature standing at the side of his bed. It was very heavy set, perhaps weighing as much as 115 kilos (250 lbs.). His dog hid under the bed blankets shaking with fear. The creature touched his knee and then pulled on the blanket. It then vanished in full view. After a couple of minutes the witness felt a severe pain in his lower abdomen. His dog growled for 20 minutes after the incident, after which he was able to go back to sleep. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing RU.UFO Guest book entries).

Jan. 27, 2003 - The witness was asleep in bed with her boyfriend at their home in Florida when she suddenly awoke and looked at the doorway and noticed two creatures that were "squishy" in appearance. They were dark colored and about three feet tall. By her bedside there was another creature, who was very tall, thin, and with large yellow eyes. It was between gray and lime-green in color. Terrified, she pulled the covers over her head, but suddenly she did not feel afraid anymore. She then felt very confused and does not know if she left her bed, but she could not speak. At one point she was lying on her stomach and something was being inserted in her rectum. When her fear returned a creature that somehow was made to appear human comforted her, telling her not to be afraid that she would not be hurt. The tall creature seemed very comforting towards the witness. He stood over her, patted her on her head and told her telepathically that they were not yet done. Soon she found herself back on her bed, very scared and confused. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing website Great Dreams.Com, Stories).

Feb. 11, 2003 - A failed alien abduction attempt was alleged in a report filed with the National UFO Reporting Center: "I was almost abducted, along with my friends, I think we all feared for our life."

Feb. 13, 2003 - A police crime scene technician in Seattle, Washington was driving home from a crime scene at 2:30 a.m. when it started to rain. His car suddenly began making weird noises and the car radio turned on automatically, scanning through numerous stations at a rate of one a second. Lights inside and outside the car were also flashing. When he looked up he saw a huge triangular-shaped object above the car. In a few seconds blinding blue lights distracted the witness. The next thing he remembers all action suddenly stopped, and his car was parked on the side of the road with everything switched off. When he looked at his watch it was 3:03 a.m. He had lost track of 33 minutes of time. He turned his car engine on and drove back to his office. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing NUFORC).

Feb. 16, 2003 - At 11:00 p.m. a huge "jet black" triangular UFO with lights came slowly toward a witness driving on 109th Avenue NE in surburban Juanita, Washington.

(Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 2003 archived webpage).

Mar. 13, 2003 - Three boomerang shaped objects hovered over the ocean off the coast of Panama City, Florida at 11:00 p.m. The sighting was brief, lasting less than 15 seconds. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 2003 webpage).

Mar. 14, 2003 - While pulling his car into the parking lot of the Behavioral Health Services Building in Winfield, Illinois the witness noticed three flashing objects coming down in the sky in front of the car. He next noticed more dropping out of the the sky until there were several. Most had red and white flashing lights, with no visible wings, and did not make a sound. Some had blue and aqua lights. Some were triangular, some cigar-shaped, and some were like a small box with four perpendicular lights. The main witness brought several people out from the building, and they all watched the spectacle together. Also during the sighting, a bona-fide helicopter with multi-colored lights flew over. A few of these objects left a contrail. The witness spent seven years in the Air Force, and is confident these were not conventional aircraft. He called 911, and a Winfield police officer responded and watched them with him. The lighted objects also discharged balls of light every once in a while, that also flew around. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, March 2003 webpage).

Mar. 18, 2003 - A married couple outside gardening in Buckhaven, Fife, Scotland at 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon saw a black, oval-shaped UFO 8-12 feet wide fly out from behind a rood only 100-130 feet away.

Apr. 4, 2003 - At 11:38 p.m. in Coral Springs, Florida a man saw a dark figure outside his window, and at first thought it was a man. It slightly resembled a naked man standing in the middle of the road, but after about 30 seconds the figure walked away. As it went behind some trees the witness thought he would go out to see who it was, but then a triangular UFO appeared, encased in an eerie glow with three lights, one in each corner. The craft then zoomed up into the sky, leaving a trail of white fog behind. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

Apr. 6, 2003 - At 4:50 p.m. a high altitude object was seen flying over Phoenix, Arizona. It stopped, started, made 90 degree turns, and reflected sunlight. It had no exterior lights. An airliner was seen passing below the UFO. Fifteen minutes later a spherical UFO came from the south, stopped, made some sharp turns, and flew off toward the east. (Source: UFO Magazine (USA), June 2003, p. 30, citing Filer's Files April 9, 2003).

Apr. 18, 2003 - A man was returning home from work at 1:00 a.m. in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and as he came out of an alley he saw a dwarfish figure run across the street between two cars. It was about four feet tall, humanoid shaped, and running on two legs. When the figure disappeared the witness ran to the place where it had last been seen, and had the feeling he was being watched. The witness could only describe the figure as having brown legs, and as it ran it seemed to be hunched over like it was trying not to be seen. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

Apr 18, 2003, Kaliningrad, Russia - At 6:17 p.m. the entire Russian Baltic Fleet and a large number of local residents watched in awe as a flying wing shaped UFO flew rapidly over Kaliningrad Harbor and plunged into the water. The event was captured on video by a local RTR Russian State Television news crew, who happened to be present on the huge naval base filming a documentary. The UFO had two elongated dome-like protrusions on top, and three similar structures underneath. It passed directly over the Baltic Fleet, which lay at anchor in Kaliningrad Harbor. According to a Russian Naval Commander, who wished to remain anonymous, the craft was apparently caught within the sweep patterns of ship-borne radars, which automatically tracked its progress. This may have caused some a malfunction on board the craft that resulted in the crash. "It was traveling at a tremendous rate of speed" he said to the reporters on the scene. "It was very low, not more than 1500 meters above the surface of the water. When the radars came on, it simply winged over and dove into the water, as if had lost either power or control." The light gray craft had no apparent seams or rivet patterns and was estimated to be about the size of a small airliner. It was estimated to be traveling at speeds in excess of Mach 2 and was absolutely silent as it flew. However, it made a tremendous noise when it hit the water, causing a geyser of steam and water. ,It appeared to one civilian observer that whoever was in control of the craft made a deliberate effort to steer it away from the naval ships and the shoreline before it went into the harbor. One Sovremini Class Destroyer was slightly damaged by flying debris, but no injuries were reported. Radiation levels at the site were "higher than normal." Debris recovered was small, less than a meter in diameter. Most debris recovered appeared to be "skin material" of an unknown alloy, and interior bracing and piping composed of a very high grade aluminum. The Navy cordoned off the area. In spite of the high speed at which the craft and it's very low altitude there was no sonic boom heard. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing UFO Casebook Forum, Russian Newspaper Sources).

Apr. 21, 2003 - An employee of a local manufacturing plant in Concord, North Carolina had just finished his shift at 8:00 p.m. and had stepped out onto a dock behind a large stack of pallets to have a smoke. He then had the feeling of being watched, and he whirled around expecting to see a co-worker. Instead he saw a large purple light emanating from a teardrop-shaped craft with a round bottom, hovering nearby. The craft had a concave windshield, and behind the windshield he could see two glowing lights or eyes. They moved independently from one another. Terrified, the witness ran but was unable to scream, so he pointed out the object to a forklift operator. Next a beam of white light shot out of the UFO and struck the forklift. Immediately the electrical system of the vehicle shut down and the operator began screaming. The witness's next memory was of sitting in the plant manager's office. Someone was giving him oxygen and wiping his forehead with a cool cloth. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle).

Apr. 22, 2003 - At 4 p.m. Fire Chief Ezequiel Alvarez reported seeing a tall hairy humanoid, about 1.80 meters in height, in Rosario De La Frontera, Argentina. It moved very quickly and emitted loud inhuman screams. The creature apparently killed three dogs using its clawed hands. A local teacher reported finding a strange hairy cadaver on the side of the road, somewhat resembling the hairy humanoid but much smaller, and he noticed that it had testicles resembling those of a human being. He did not stop to pick up the body but drove on. Sightings of the tall hairy creature have repeatedly been made around the local dump. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Radio 10, Buenos Aires in Planeta Listas).

Apr 23, 2003 - Elliott A. was returning to his home in Exmouth, Devon, England from an Air Cadet exercise at 2:45 in the afternoon when he suddenly lost consciousness and experienced some missing time. He does not remember how he got home, but could only remember leaving the Squadron HQ and then waking in the driveway outside his house. Later that night, while sleeping, he experienced a very realistic "dream" in which he spoke to "aliens". They were small Grey figures with big black eyes, no noses and thin slits for mouths; he could not describe their "voice". He seemed to shout out questions before he came under their influence. He remembers confronting the aliens about "things", but could only remember the aliens saying, "That if we didn't change our ways, they would annihilate us and start over," or something to that effect. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Mystical Universe, Alien Abduction Cases).

Apr. 28, 2003 - While driving home from work at 8:00 p.m. Mr. Marcus Warner saw a blue flashing light in his rear view mirror. He pulled to the side of the road in Pontypool, Gwent, Wales and stopped his car's engine. He was then approached by some men in black suits resembling businessmen or government agents. At this point his memory began to fail, but he recalls one of the men leading him to an open area near the local "Burtons Biscuit Factory." He then had a feeling of weightlessness and an intense feeling of calm. He remembered seeing a formation of figures, arranged into a ten pin bowling formation. He has a recurring image of a needle piercing his left eye. He has no recollection of driving the rest of the way home, but arrived there somehow. He has not, to date, undergone hypnosis in an attempt to recover the events that occurred during his amnesia. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing "I was abducted.com, abduction stories").

May 1, 2003 - A married couple driving in West Seattle, Washington sighted a silent triangular object moving across the sky at 10:00 p.m. It had a dim orange light at each apex, and the lights seemed striped rather than solid. It flew off to the northwest. When they got home they noticed that their dog was trembling, and acting very lethargic. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, May 2003 webpage).

May 2, 2003 - Three young women returning from a bonfire in the Illinois countryside and had just finished putting away equipment and chairs into a shed. As they got back into their van, at around 3:30 a.m., one of them saw a figure standing a short distance off the driveway by a house. She pointed it out to the other two. Somewhat spooked, they drove back toward town. They described the figure as man-like, wearing light colored or white clothing. They headed over to the site of the bonfire, the embers of which were still glowing. Suddenly, in the glare of their van's headlights they all saw two separate rows of creatures, with perhaps 15 standing in each row. They were about three or four feet tall and were standing only 15 feet away from them, directly in front of the van. One of the women wrote that they had "Christmas light heads" that were connected to their body, but she couldn't see how. Their arms were up in the air, but she couldn't see any hands. They appeared to be stick-like, and dark gray or brown in color. They did not move but stood perfectly still. The two girls riding as passengers began to scream for the driver to leave the area immediately. Terrified, they drove away and continued to drive around for the next two hours before they had enough courage to return to their homes. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2003, citing Peter Davenport, NUFORC).

May 3, 2003 - At 3:30 a.m. a man was sitting on his back porch in North Richland Hills, Texas looking out at the horse pasture behind his home. The pasture held several horses but he could not see them because they were at the other end of the field. He heard what sounded like the horses kicking a metal sheet and squealing loudly. He also heard dogs barking in the distance. Just as he strained to look over to the horse shed everything became completely quiet. The witness started to feel scared by the eerie silence, and as he stepped off his porch he started to hear a low whirring sound. He next saw a light beam flash on the ground in the middle of the pasture. The source was a black craft, hovering about 100 feet above the ground. It was shooting flashes of light at the ground from a pod on the right end of the craft. The craft had a multicolored mist or hot looking gas on the bottom of it, on the left side was what looked like a red rectangular window. Inside he could see movement, but at that moment he began to feel sick. The craft appeared to be about 50 feet long with a dull blue light on the top. After five minutes the whirring sound faded and the craft hovered silently for another two seconds before it zipped straight up and out of sight without a sound. He then noticed that the electrical power seemed to be off in the neighborhood. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, 2003 Humanoid Contact Database, citing Peter Davenport, NUFORC).

Some spoke of a possible meteorite, judging from the form and color of the object, which dove into the ocean at some distance from shore. Immediately the alarm was sounded and the military police from Alba got involved. A motorboat was sent from San Benedetto, which reached the location where the object plunged into the sea but they were not able to find anything.

Jul. 12, 2003 - The witness and her mother were driving home down a road in Ashland, Kentucky at around 10:00 p.m. when they saw a moving light in the sky. They first assumed it was a plane, but then it started moving faster. It sped up to an unbelievable speed and shot back and forth between wo stars, and then stopped as if it had spotted them. At this point their car stopped running. The UFO had disappeared but they had a feeling it was still present, watching them. It reappeared, this time closer. They next saw 20 to 30 lights zooming across the sky. These all stopped at the same star in the sky as the first one, and they all vanished in a bright flash. They heard no sound during any of this. The daughter reports that she then fainted, but her mother continued to watch. She said the light got bigger and brighter, and in the midst of the light her mother claims to have seen dark figures carrying strange instruments. When the daughter woke up, the car was on the side of the road about 20 feet from where it had been. About half an hour had passed, but it seemed to have been much longer. Her mother was now passed out and outside of the car. She appeared unharmed, but she did have a scar on the back of her neck. The mother convinced herself that the mark was from the back of the car door when she "fell" out of the car. For subsequent nights the pair have seen strange lights in the sky at night, dashing across the sky. (Source: Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, July 2003 webpage).

Jul. 16, 2003 - At around 8:30 p.m. two teachers in their fifties had gone for a short evening walk across the fields of Barnoldswick, Lancashire, England and were almost back home when they looked up and saw the figure of a man in the sky. He was dressed in what looked like black overalls, and he was descending as if by parachute. He came down about 50 yards away behind the last house in the row, so they thought he was going to land in the meadow beyond. But when he was only about 15 feet from the ground he leveled off and began to slowly accelerate, climbing gently and heading off in a northerly direction. They watched as he crossed the valley and disappeared into the distance. They did not see any means of propulsion on the man. Nothing visible was attached to his back and he made no sound, at least nothing they could detect. Visibility was excellent that evening. (Source: Albert S.
