My name is Tatsumi Tanaka. I am 42 years old and the owner of the beauty parlour in Annaka-City, Gunma Prefecture. Last Sunday, October 23, I have seen a UFO and it was the first time such a shocking matter happened to me. I never believed that I would have such an experience, but surprisingly, it happened to me. I was on the second floor of my house and casually looking out the East window, when I caught sight of a white object, rather big, the shape impossible to describe, rising softly and perpendicularly from the surface of the ground. We can see Mount Akagi in the North Northeast direction, and it was in this direction that the UFO rose, but I could not tell how far away it was. It was about 10 o’clock in the morning. I wondered what it was. I thought at first sight it must be an airship or a balloon. I strained my eyes to see better but could not understand what it was.
After rising straight up, it stayed for a while at a constant height and seemed to become blurred outside. It then turned into the oval shape that is familiar to us from TV or magazines. It was the same object but not the same shape as before, but the outline was not clear. Soon after it moved to the right at a fast speed. It looked like a low-altitude flight but it all happened so quickly, and then it just disappeared in the cloudless blue sky. I was so shocked, I felt out of my mind. This thing was so huge, but it disappeared just in a moment. I tried to explain what I saw to my wife and child who were right beside me but I couldn’t. I just pointed and could only shout out in surprise. My wife was very annoyed and said that everyone cannot see UFOs, only some people do and some don’t. By then it had disappeared. I was so excited that I went outside with my daughter and searched the sky but it was too late. I still can’t believe I have had such an experience. I will never forget that movement and that speed, something beyond common sense. It means to me that things exist that we don’t understand.

I am called Shahee bou-Ainann. On Thursday March 26th, 1966, I was camped with a party of Bedouins. We were staying near the beach outside the town of Jubail, near the oil fields. That night we were relaxing around the campfire, looking up at the stars from time to time just as usual. Then suddenly, something never before seen appeared in the sky. It was a very large, brilliant blue light. It had the definite shape of an oval. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief. So did everyone else. I thought we were dreaming. We watched the bright blue oval for several minutes as it hovered directly overhead, not too far away. Then, suddenly, it was gone…
My name is Wang Cunqiao. I live in Pusalu, a farming village 68 kilometres from Beijing. In my village we believe something mysterious, perhaps cosmic forces, made themselves visible to us on December 11, 1999. In the early evening, we saw an object about the size of a person and shimmering with golden light move slowly up into the sky from behind a nearby mountain. It was so beautiful, sort of yellow, shimmering. It looked like a supernatural being floating slowly up to heaven. This mysterious yellow object seemed to hover above the red roof of our small village hall. We just stood and watched until it suddenly disappeared. Then someone reported it to the authorities. I know this was something very real and very important.
I am Colonel Li, Commander of the airbase in Changzou, where the military flight training academy is located. On October 19, 1998 four radar stations in Hebei Province reported the presence of an unidentified “blip” hovering over the academy. After ascertaining that the intruder was not a military or civilian flight, I ordered a Jianjiao 6 jet fighter to take off and intercept the UFO. At least 140 people on the ground saw the object. To observers at the base, the UFO first appeared to be a small pointed star, and then grew larger and larger, perhaps as it descended to a lower altitude. Witnesses described an object with a mushroom-shaped dome on top and a flat bottom, covered with bright, constantly-rotating lights.
The crew of the Jianjiao 6 interceptor consisted of a pilot and a radar officer. The two officers reported that the object clearly resembled depictions they had seen in foreign science fiction films… When they got within 4,000 metres of the UFO over Qing county, it abruptly shot upwards, easily evading subsequent attempts to get closer.
The flight crew reported that it appeared to be toying with the plane by repeatedly outdistancing it and then reappearing right above it. The pilot requested permission to fire on the UFO with the plane’s automatic 20 mm cannon. I denied this permission to shoot, and told him to continue to pursue and observe the object. The pilot broke off pursuit at an altitude of 12,000 metres when the plane began running low on fuel. The UFO then apparently disappeared before I could order additional planes to be sent to the area.
My name is Kannan, I am a teacher at a boys’ school (gurukala) run by ISKCON in the village of Mayapura, West Bengal. I had a traditional Hindu religious upbringing but later rebelled against this by adopting ideas of atheism and rational skepticism. However, I have now regained my interest in spiritual questions. A few years ago I saw something that was what you would call a UFO but I believe was a vimana. It was during the Desert Storm battle. I had a class in the evening and I was listening to the BBC news of the battle with some of the Bhakti Sastri boys in front of my house. We were following Saddam Hussein very meticulously, all his movements. So I would put all the boys in front of my house in the evening, we would lay out a mat, put out the lights and play the radio under the stars.
It was about 8 pm. As I was sitting there, I just looked up and saw this very bright blue light overhead. It started from the Dhruva star, the Polestar that can be seen behind our school building. It started from there and it was moving very fast. Then when it came directly overhead, it seemed to slow down and then stop. It had a tail at the back that started small and became bigger. And very clearly there was a solid object in front of that. It was not at all like a star or a satellite, and it was not very high.
I was already staring at it when one boy said, “What is that, Pradhu?” And then this other boy said, “What is that, what is that?” We all got up and were looking at it. There were six of us, five boys and me. My wife was in the kitchen cooking something and she came out too because we were all shouting. So it was at maybe one and a half palm tree’s height from the roof of our hut, which is not very high. It was at less than five stories above us. We saw it very clearly. Most of them were concentrating on the light. I looked in the front and I saw that it was a clear object. It was not a star and it was not far away. It was right there. And it was also, like, moving around itself but very slowly. Then it moved slowly away toward the Jalangi River where it suddenly picked up speed and disappeared. It was like somebody who slows down to look at something.
It was very, very interesting and the boys kept asking about it. Boys ask all sorts of questions. But anyway, to my understanding, it was actually a vimana. And for some reason they can become bigger or become smaller. It was an abnormal thing and we were completely helpless just looking at it. When I described it to a Muslim gentleman, an old farmer, he said that in the sky over Mayapura there are so many things like this. Things come, things go. So many things happen because this is Mahaprabhu’ s place. So it is not surprising that such thing are seen in the sky over his land.
