This is page is under construction and cases will be added as they are located. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to the A-Team, in particular, Don Johnson (UFOCAT), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), Jean Waskiewicz (online NICAP DBase [NSID], and Peter Davenport (NUFORC). You will note the many foreign reports that we are now being able to access. Also, Don Johnson's entries are constructed slightly different than the usual NICAP chrono format to save time and help separate the sources.

The  UFO Chronology

Feb. 28, 2006 - According to the witness, at 12:30 a.m. in Sabana Grande, Mayaguez, Puerto Rico he saw three or four Grey aliens standing near a landed bell-shaped object for 60 minutes. They and the object were 650 feet away. They stood 3-4 feet tall, had long fingers, almond eyes, and big heads. There was a sequence of lights from the top and sides of the bell, as well as the rim of the disc-shaped bottom. There was a probe-like arm that hovered and moved 20 feet from the ground.

Aug. 5, 2006 - At around 11:00 p.m., while night hunting for wild boar, three men in Bonaire, Georgia came upon a stand of oak trees alongside a field where they had just run their dogs, and saw some lights coming from the woods. They decided to investigate and walked into the woods approximately 60 yards before they heard a loud whooshing sound. Their dogs then tucked their tails and began whining. When the men tried to get a closer look the lights dimmed, and another whooshing sound was heard. The men then saw two small green “midgets” run from behind a tree toward what appeared to be a large “concrete mixer” with lights on it. Later on, after waiting awhile and drinking a beer, the men ran back up the hill with their dogs. The light and the object had gone, and there was an eerie silence throughout the woods, so that even the insects were completely quiet. The next day, the men returned to the spot and found nothing out of the ordinary. Later that next evening one of the men went to feed his dogs and found that “Judo,” his best hunting dog, was sick and would not eat anything. He claims the dog died later that week without any apparent reason. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2006, citing National UFO Reporting Center).

Aug. 6, 2006 - A man was driving in a remote area of Tapiola, Michigan at 11:30 p.m. when a square metallic craft overtook and hovered above his vehicle. The witness sped up to 80 mph but his car kept slowing down. He came to a sharp curve and the craft was still over him, so he tried to drive faster after taking the turn, but the car continued to slow down until it finally came to a complete halt. He and his dog got out of the vehicle and ran into some bushes to hide. He next saw many lights shining through the brush that were maybe a thousand yards distant, and there were about 50 “figures” moving about among the lights. There was a "cocoon"-shaped object about 12 feet long, and there were body lights on this object. The activity reminded him of an ant colony. Apparently the creatures noticed him, because he saw three creatures coming toward him into the brush. These were somewhat human-like with normal sized heads, but had very long legs and very long arms and large torsos. He did not see the eyes, for they were back lit by the light coming from behind them. The man and his dog ran further from the area and hid again. The beings appeared to search for him but gave up. From his new location he saw two more cocoon-like crafts, with numerous creatures moving around them. (Source: Albert S.

Aug. 13, 2006 - At 1:35 a.m. in Chatham, Ontario multiple disk-like objects were seen shooting beams of white light back and forth to one another.

Aug. 18, 2006 - At 1:18 a.m. in Black Point, Nova Scotia, Canada a witness first observed a simple blue nocturnal light in the sky. Several minutes later he observed a slow-moving disc-shaped object flying just over his neighbor's house, where it hovered for several minutes.(Source: Geoff Dittman, Canadian UFO Survey 2006, case # 526, citing

Aug. 26, 2006 - A man was out for a midnight stroll in Winterset, Iowa and on his way back home at around 12:30 a.m he looked up into the sky and saw what appeared to be a saucer-shaped object, about as large as anything he had ever seen. It was just hovering there silently. Next, two more similar looking, silent objects appeared. All three craft had lights that changed color from red to white and then to green. The witness made several hand gestures at the UFOs and they seemed to respond back to him. He suddenly felt that there was someone behind him, so he turned around and saw a small Grey being, about 3 ½ to 4ft tall, with a pear-shaped head, huge eyes and no visible mouth. It communicated with the witness via telepathy. The creature and the witness exchanged messages back and forth for about five minutes. The creature communicated that they were not here to harm us, but were here just to view and observe us. The witness then asked about the “Roswell” crash and the creature supposedly confirmed that the event had indeed taken place, and added that they “had been trying to get their ship back”. After this the small creature turned around and entered one of the hovering craft, and then all three took off, emitting a final light show before disappearing from sight. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 2006, citing Peter Davenport, National UFO Reporting Center, Seattle, August 2006 webpage).

Sep. 23, 2006 - A large triangular craft flew low over two witnesses traveling in a car in Ste. Adolphe, Manitoba at 8:30 p.m. No noise was heard coming from the object. (Source: Geoff Dittman, 2006 Canadian UFO Survey, case # 624).

Nov. 7, 2006; Chicago, Illinois
On United Airlines flight 0878 the sighting happened at roughly 4:00 pm. Ther plane was descending to land and he was waiting to see the airport as they were passing through the clouds. When they cleared the cloud level, he immediately saw the airport and gradually noticed a grey, round object....there was a definite moment when they were above it, a moment when they were level, and a moment when they were below it. It was elliptical in shape, dull grey, with no visible markings. There were no openings for windows or doors. As they landed he lost sight of it but saw it again as their plane was turning on the tarmac.(MUFON Case 59470)
