On November 2nd 1957, near the small town of Levelland, Texas, fifteen reports of strange aircraft and lights in the sky were reported to police. This incident has become one of the best verified UFO incidents in history.

The Levelland UFO Sightings

Two immigrant farm workers named Pedro Saucedo and Joe Salaz were driving west of Levelland on the 2nd of November 1957 when they saw a bright blue flash of light near the road.

Their truck’s engine immediately died and a rocket shaped object rose up off of the ground and approached the truck. Saucedo jumped out of the truck and cowered on the road in fear. He called out to Salaz who was too scared to move and stayed in the truck.

The strange object flew directly over the truck with such force that the truck rocked. It caused a powerful sound and rush of wind. Saucedo felt heat coming from the object as it passed.

Once the object was gone Saucedo’s truck started working again and the men drove off terrified. They called the local police who thought it was a prank and didn’t take any action.

Only an hour later another motorist named Jim Wheeler was driving about four miles east of Levelland. Suddenly an bright egg shaped UFO that was about 200 feet long appeared in front if him, blocking his path. His vehicle also died so he got out of his car to investigate. As he did this the lights went out on the UFO and it took off. As it moved away Wheeler was able to restart his car and drive away.

At 10:55 pm that same evening a married coulle were driving northeast of Levelland when they saw a bright flash of light moving across the sky. Five minutes later their car headlights and radio died for several seconds before turning back on.

Just five minutes after this a man named Jose Alvarez came across a strange object 11 miles north of Levelland. His car engine also died while in the presence of the UFO and restarted once it left.

Just after midnight a student from Texas Technological College named Newell Wright was driving 10 miles east of Levelland when his car engine began to splutter and his vehicle rolled to a stop. After a few seconds the headlights stopped working.

When Wright got out of his car to see if he could figure out what happened he saw a huge egg shaped object sitting on the road. The object took off into the sky and Wright’s vehicle began to work again.

Similar incidents were reported from different people at 12:15am, 12:45am and 1:15am. The police were no longer able to write the incidents off as hoaxes due to there being so many reports.

By midnight several police officers were out investigating the UFO sightings around Levelland. Sheriff Weir Clem was one of them and he himself saw a bright red object moving across the sky at 1:30 am.

At 1:45 am Ray Jones, Levelland’s Fire Chief, also saw a bright object in the sky while his vehicles engine and lights faltered. The reports stopped coming in at around 2am. Fifteen reports were made to the Levelland police department that evening with all callers being terrified or excited by what they had seen.

The US Airforce investigation of the Levelland UFO Sightings

The Airforce were called in to investigate due to the large number of credible sightings. After interviewing three eyewitnesses and learning that there were thunderstorms earlier in the day the Airforce concluded that ball lightning was the likely cause of the Levelland UFO sightings.

James E. McDonald and J. Allen Hynek disputed this version of events. They claimed the Airforce only spent 7 hours investigating the UFO sightings in Levelland and couldn’t possibly have completed a thorough investigation in this time.

They were also disappointed with the blame being place on ball lightning. Locals in the area claim there was a light mist that evening but no thunderstorms. Hynek also pointed out that there is no evidence of ball lightning being able to cause car engines and headlights to stop working.

The Blue Man of Studham Common

Many think that over 50 years ago, aliens came to Studham, a peaceful village near Dunstable, Bedfordshire, UK. This belief was sparked by a strange story told by six young boys in January 1967, who said they saw something very unusual.

Six Boys and the Blue Man of Studham

Studham Common, where the boys saw the strange blue man. Was it an alien?

The event occurred on January 28, 1967, around 1:45 p.m., right after lunch. It took place near the Whipsnade Park Zoo, at Studham Common in Bedfordshire, U.K. Five, six, or seven boys, all 10 and 11 years old – Alex Butler, Tony Banks, Terry Cahill, Colin Lonsdale, David Inglis – were involved. They were playing before school started again at 2:00 p.m. at Studham Lower School.

The sky was clear even though it had been raining earlier. The boys were near a footpath leading to a low valley called Dell. This area, full of bushes and trees next to Studham Common, was a great place for them to play hide-and-seek.

The boys were playing and having fun at Studham Common when suddenly a blue lightning bolt appeared nearby. A 10-year-old boy noticed a small blue figure standing about 20 yards away, next to some bushes.

The figure was said to be around three feet tall, and it had a hat or helmet that was about two feet tall. The hat looked like a bowler hat without a brim, with a rounded top. The figure’s body was a shiny dark blue-grey color, which made it hard to see the figure’s shape and details clearly. It had a large black belt that was hanging down, with a black box about 6 square inches in size attached at the front.

The figure’s face had two round eyes and a flat, triangular shape where the nose should be. It had a split blue or blueish beard, with the two parts running down each side of the chest. There seemed to be a line or edge of hair or something similar at the top of the helmet, just above the eyes. The figure’s arms were short and stayed by its sides without moving. Its legs and feet were barely visible.

When they tried to approach the figure, he vanished as if he disappeared into smoke. Interestingly, they spotted him again, standing another 20 yards away. Each time they tried to get closer, he disappeared and reappeared further away. Eventually, the boys decided to hide and watch him from behind the bushes.

The Flying Saucer Review, a publication that spoke to the children, said they started hearing voices that seemed like unintelligible chatter from somewhere near them in the bushes. The boys felt like the blue figure was communicating with others, even though he didn’t move.

This made them cautious, so they didn’t rush towards the figure anymore. They continued to watch from a distance until they saw him standing still in the same spot for the fourth and last time.

The boys ran to their classroom and told their teacher about it, who didn’t believe them, but the local media and people who believe in UFOs took it seriously.

Apparently, all the different stories about this event were gathered in a book titled The Little Blue Man On Studham Common, but we have not been able to track this down.

Possible Explanations for the Blue Man of Studham Common

Some have suggested that the story is probably a hoax, made up by the school boys to get attention. The boys involved however have never wavered from their stories.

If the story is not just a hoax perpetrated by the school boys perhaps it truly was an encounter with something extraterrestrial or paranormal. Many alien abductees report missing time or having memories that don’t make sense, like they were planted. Perhaps the “blue man” was a memory planted in all of the boys’ minds to cover up something more sinister.

The Green Whale of Bantam Lake

Before dawn on April 10, 2012, a motorist and a state trooper ten miles apart reported witnessing a colossal, neon-green object plunging from the sky into Bantam Lake, Connecticut.

Sightings of the “Green Whale”

The Republican American newspaper first reported the story on a Thursday morning. They said a driver in Litchfield saw a green, glowing object as big as a whale fall from the sky into Bantam Lake around 2 a.m. on the previous Tuesday. At the same time, a police officer about 10 miles away in Warren told the police station he saw something fall from the sky near Bantam or Morris.

Firefighters from Morris went up and down the lake in a boat to see if a plane had crashed, but they didn’t find anything. The search was stopped, and the mystery was not solved.

People living in the area found the story interesting, and some businesses tried to use the story to attract customers. But some people wanted to know what really happened.

Robert LaBonne, who used to be the president of the Bantam Lake Protective Association, wrote an email to two local politicians, State Sen. Andrew Roraback and State Rep. Craig Miner. He told them he was getting emails from people as far away as Florida asking what was being done to figure out the mystery.

Bob Leigh, called The Litchfield County Times one late Thursday afternoon. He said that he and two of his friends saw the same thing at the same place about two years ago, around the same time.

Mr. Leigh said that the whole sky turned into a strange green light and then it was gone.

Leigh and his friends looked at each other and wondered what that thing was. He said it came from the sky like a green blob.

A new report covering the story of the Green Whale of Bantam Lake

Possible Mundane Explanations for the Green Whale

It is not known for sure what exactly fell from the sky on that fateful April monring and so far there have been no searches conducted in the lake.

Brian Koberlein, a space scientist and writer, told CT Insider that meteoroids and asteroids can look green when they burn up in our atmosphere because of the iron-nickel in them. He thinks a meteor might be responsible for what was seen.

He said that it’s hard to tell where something is and how big it is in the night sky. For example, the moon looks really big when it’s low in the sky, but it’s always the same size. The same thing can happen with meteors.

They might look big, bright, and close to the ground, but they’re usually higher up and just look like they’re near the horizon. Since this event happened during a meteor shower, and green meteors are not unusual, he thinks it was probably a meteor.
