The Maury Island Incident
In another early encounter from 1948, Fred Crisman and Harold Dahl were patrolling the US harbor near Puget Sound, Washington. Both Crisman, as well as Dahl, later reported seeing six flying objects in the sky above the water. The patrolmen claimed that one of the UFOs dropped heavy debris onto their boat, killing an animal onboard and breaking a co-worker’s arm. Dahl later reported that a strange man in a black suit approached him, threatening him to never speak of the incident.
In 1996, a man referred to as “Victor” reportedly leaked video footage of an Area 51 alien interrogation. The video clip features a “small, beige-skinned, black-eyed, bulbous-headed creature” which is evidently in a “distressed state.” Victor notes that the creature’s head “looked purple and bruised as if it had suffered severe contusions across the skull.” The end of the clip shows the alien having a reported seizure and foaming at the mouth. UFO experts have debated the legitimacy of the tape.
A Marine Encounter
In October 2017, a group of US Marines reportedly filmed an encounter with a massive UFO during a training exercise in the Arizona desert, not far from Area 51. The footage went viral immediately, and ever since, folks have been debating whether the flying saucer was real, or merely a CGI effect. While many commenters were convinced that the video was simply a hoax, several others believed it to be the real thing. We’ll let you be the judge.
An Unwelcome Visitor
A Reddit user named Ufoprobe claims he was abducted on several occasions throughout his youth. His first recollection came when he was in the first grade. In the middle of the night, he claims he woke up to see a short grey creature standing in his room wearing a black V-neck shirt with a V symbol on its chest. The moment that Ufoprobe made eye contact with the creature, he reportedly blacked out. Next thing he knew, his mom was waking him up for school.
Too Close For Comfort
Another Reddit user, Mr_throwaway_999, also claims to have encountered grey aliens on numerous occasions throughout his life. His scariest experience came at age 25. He woke up in his bed surrounded by four to five small aliens and two taller ones. He reports that these creatures were operating on him. Unable to move, Mr_throwaway_999 explains that every so often, they touched him with a black rod, causing him to blackout. Eventually, he woke up on his porch with no recollection of what had happened.
The Allagash Abductions
In 1967, four friends went camping in Maine’s Allagash Wilderness. On the second night, the men observed a bright light. The next night, while fishing, the men saw the same light. When they aimed a flashlight in its direction, the light expanded and enveloped them. That was the last thing they remembered. Over the next several decades, all four men reported recurring nightmares in which they replayed short clips from that night. Eventually, they sought hypnotherapy, which revealed shared memories of an alien abduction and examination.
The Robert Taylor Incident
Robert Taylor, a forestry worker from Scotland, claims to have seen a UFO parked in the woods back in 1979. He described seeing two small spheres emerge from a massive object and drag him into the UFO. He then lost consciousness. When he awoke, he had lost his voice and was in bad physical shape. The local police conducted an investigation into the incident, but couldn’t offer any sort of explanation about what had happened to Mr. Taylor.
Now You See Him, Now You Don’t
One night, Travis Walton was on his way home with six coworkers. While driving, the men came across a UFO. When they approached, a light emerged and Walton levitated into the aircraft. The remaining men were accused of murdering Walton. After thorough interrogations, their stories held up. Five days after going missing, Walton reappeared, thinking he’d only been gone for a few hours. He later recalled being interrogated by three creatures with bald heads and huge eyes and having experiments performed on him.
In The Blink Of An Eye
In a Reddit thread, one user named Pun-Chi described a bizarre experience from their youth. They remember getting ready for bed, but suddenly feeling overwhelmed by an unexplained fear. They claimed that they slowly turned around, expecting to see something frightening. All of a sudden, it was the next morning. “One second I was terrified at night and as I turned around it was the next morning. I felt well rested yet only a second (which I was awake for) had passed,” they wrote.
A Manhattan Encounter
In arguably one of the most well-documented UFO encounters, Linda Napolitano claimed that she was pulled from the window of her Manhattan apartment onto a flying saucer. She offered authorities a detailed description of her experience and a pair of United Nations bodyguards claimed to have seen the exact same thing in a strikingly similar abduction. Several years after the incident, a photo of the outside of Linda’s apartment building was released showing a strange object floating in the sky.
A Sleepover Gone Wrong
While sleeping over a friend’s house in Florida, Redditt user Lyndseyc555 claims that she woke in the middle of the night to a loud humming noise and an extremely bright light shining through the window. The girls initially thought that a car parked outside their window, but a tree and fence in the yard would’ve prevented this. For some reason, no one else in the house woke up that night. Lyndseyc555 insists that either she and her friends were abducted, or witnessed someone else being abducted.
What Happens In Area 51, Stays In Area 51
Charlie Arrendale was a security guard for a mine near Area 51. For two nights in a row in 1965, Arrendale received orders to engage anything that approached the property. During the first night, the guards heard a “muted humming sound” which lasted for 30 minutes. After the sound dissipated, the guards left via bus. From the bus, they witnessed a camouflage tent on the runway, surrounded by armed soldiers. The next night, they heard the same humming, but when they left, the tent had disappeared.
