Portage County police UFO chase: 1966
Francis Ridge:
If this incident seems familiar to you, just maybe you saw the motion picture, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". Investigated by NICAP's William Weitzel, this report, also known as the Spauer/Neff Case, was the basis for the UFO "chase" in this film. This case involves police witnesses, confrontation, light beam, brilliant illumination, light engulfment, sound, cat and mouse chase, with rapid upward departure. Special thanks go out to Mark Rodeghier of CUFOS for providing the documentation and to Loy Pressley for converting them into text so I could make the web pages. [continued]

These are 3 videos from the documentary "UFO - Encounters in australia".
Its not the full documentary because that has more cases, but it has good computer generated reconstructions.

part1: part2: deleted [No regressive hypnosis please. Ivan]
part3:
The 3rd one has the Kelly Cahill case, which is an interesting abduction/abuse with multiple witnesses.
I also found this video in which she is interviewed. I suggest watching it because its much more detailed than the video. She also mentions that some university did an 18 month investigation of the landingsite and what they found.
http://video.google.nl/videoplay?docid=8783845915124327512 [Broken] (interview starts at 50 seconds)

[edit by Ivan] As a rule, please stay away from the abduction claims as this is at most secondary to the UFO phenomenon. There is no reliable evidence [such as RADAR data in some UFO cases] to support abduction claims. There are some interesting accounts like this and the Walton case. And to be fair, I started it by posting the Ancient Mysteries link, but, void of well documented events and multiple reliable observers [Walton also had multiple witnesses], the modern, so called abduction phenomenon, is another can of worms entirely that goes beyond the scope of this Napster. Also, any reliance on regressive hypnosis all but discredits the account since it has been proven that hypnosis can be a very unreliable form of memory retrieval.

Thanks,

From the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, in Canada, The 1996 Yukon UFO event [new to me] is recounted. Also, a unique perspective on the UFO phenomenon is offered within the context of aboriginal beliefs and myths. I found it to be pretty dry, and it is certainly biased at times, but I found it to be interesting nonetheless.

"I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on Earth."
--President Harry Truman, April 4, 1950 White House press conference.

"For the next two or three days the saucers passed over the base daily. Sometimes they appeared in groups of four, other times as many as sixteen. They could outmaneuver and outflank us seemingly at will. They moved at varying speeds--sometimes very fast, sometimes slow--and other times they would come to a dead stop as we zoomed past underneath."
--Astronaut Gordon Cooper, describing his first direct encounters with UFO's while serving as a military pilot in Germany. (from Leap of Faith, Gordon Cooper’s autobiography, p. 91)

“It was a four-foot human shaped figure with arms, bizarre-looking four-fingered hands… and an oversized incandescent lightbulb-shaped head… pale gray skin…. But the eye sockets themselves were oversized and almond shaped and pointed down to its tiny nose, which didn’t protrude from the skull.”
--Eisenhower White House National Security Council member Col. Philip J. Corso describing dead aliens he saw in glass containers en route from Roswell, NM to Wright Field in Ohio. From Corso’s 1997 book The Day After Roswell, p. 32

"These (gray aliens) were living, breathing creatures, just as mortal as you and I. They had feelings, they had families. They had a cultural society. The one thing they didn't have was hate, hostility. They had anger, from what I observed--and I don't know how to explain it better than stating--it was an intellectual anger. They could not... comprehend how a species such as us, that had such great potential to do such wonderful and marvelous things, could do such horrible and nightmarish things to one another."
--Master Sgt. Clifford Stone, ret., who testified that he encountered "gray" aliens while working in a US Army unit that retrieved crashed extraterrestrial vehicles. (from Stone’s cassette Insider: In His Own Words)

New british ufo files (from the MOD i think):

Newly released UFO files - October 2008
The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents covering the years 1986–1992. If you want to find out more about close encounters over Gatwick Airport, alien abductions, stray satellites - and what the UK Government thought of it all - then this is the place to be. The files are in PDF format.

Letter to Scientific American
December 18, 1886

CURIOUS PHENOMENON IN VENEZUELA

To the Editor of the Scientific American:

The following brief account of a recent strange meteorological occurrence may be of interest to your readers as an addition to the list of electrical eccentricities:

During the night of the 24th of October last, which was rainy and tempestuous, a family of nine persons, sleeping in a hut a few leagues from Maracaibo, were awakened by a loud humming noise and a vivid, dazzling light, which brilliantly illuminated the interior of the house.

The occupants completely terror stricken, and believing, as they relate, that the end of the world had come, threw themselves on their knees and commenced to pray, but their devotions were almost immediately interrupted by violent vomitings, and extensive swellings commenced to appear in the upper part of their bodies, this being particularly noticeable about the face and lips.

It is to be noted that the brilliant lights was not accompanied by a sensation of heat, although there was a smoky appearance and a peculiar smell.

The next morning, the swellings had subsided, leaving upon the face and body large black blotches. No special pain was felt until the ninth day, when the skin peeled off, and these blotches were transformed into virulent raw sores.

The hair of the head fell off upon the side which happened to be underneath when the phenomenon occurred, the same side of the body being , in all nine cases, the more seriously injured.

The remarkable part of the occurrence is that the house was uninjured, all doors and windows being closed at the time.

No trace of lightning could afterward by observed in any part of the building, and all the sufferers unite in saying that there was no detonation, but only the loud humming already mentioned.

Another curious attendant circumstance is that the trees around the house showed no signs of injury until the ninth day, when they suddenly withered, almost simultaneously with the development of the sores upon the bodies of the occupants of the house.

This is perhaps a mere coincidence, but it is remarkable that the same susceptibility to electrical effects, with the same lapse of time, should be observed in both animal and vegetable organisms.
I have visited the sufferers, who are now in one of the hospitals of this city; and although their appearance is truly horrible, yet it is hoped that in no case will the injuries prove fatal.

The letter tickles me; the author finds the delayed effects on vegatation and humans to be of interest, yet there is no attempt to explain or postulate what the cause of the effects actually were..

From what is reported, it sounds like the area was exposed to a huge dose of radiation.

He did mention the "electrical effects". Note that radiation was first discovered nine years later, with Madam Curie being a bit after that.

Ah yes, that makes sense

Once again the NSA has readdressed all of their UFO documents, so many links within the napster will not work. I will fix the links as time allows. For now, just search "UFO" on the NSA page and look for the relevant file.
