True Ufo Stories

Year: 1985

Country: United States

As the author of several popular novels, Whitley Strieber was already a well-known public figure before his tale of abduction. His bizarre story took place in an isolated cabin in the north of New York state, where he was staying with his wife and son over the Christmas holidays.

At around 11PM, Strieber heard a strange noise and assumed it might be a burglar. However, upon investigating, he discovered a weird creature standing in the bedroom with him. An instant later, Strieber found himself sitting alone in the woods near his cabin.

Strieber turned to hypnotist Dr. Donald F. Klein, in an attempt to recover his lost memories. Over the course of several regressive hypnosis sessions, Strieber was able to piece together what had happened. He remembered that shortly after encountering the creature, he was floated from the bedroom into a UFO above the woods. Inside the craft were a few different types of alien creatures; one resembled a robot, while another was very thin and frail with “haunting” black eyes.

Most disturbing though, was Strieber’s recollection of the medical procedures performed. A long needle was inserted into his brain, and a tool was pushed into his rectum. Streiber’s claims have been dismissed as hallucinations, but he has maintained to this day that what happened was real.

While not technically an abduction case, Dr. Herbert Hopkins did find himself on the receiving end of a very peculiar visit. Hopkins, a doctor and hypnotist, was hired as a consultant for a supposed UFO teleportation case in Maine. One evening, while alone in the house, Hopkins received a call from a man claiming to be from the New Jersey UFO Research Organisation. After a short conversation, they agreed that the man could come to Hopkins’ house that evening to discuss some details related to the case.

After putting the phone down, Hopkins went outside to turn on a light so that the house would be easier to find. No sooner had he stepped out the door, he noticed a man already climbing the steps to his porch. The man was dressed in a black suit and hat, with a white shirt. After removing his hat, he was revealed as being completely bald, with no hair, eyelashes or eyebrows.

Eerily, the man’s skin was almost completely white, and Hopkins noticed at one point that his lips were smeared with lipstick. The man in black discussed the UFO case, but also performed a strange demonstration, causing a coin to disappear in front of Hopkins’ eyes before stating, “neither you, nor anyone else on this planet will ever see that coin again”. After continuing discussion, Hopkins realised that the man’s speech was noticeably slowing, until the visitor walked out of the house towards a bright light on the driveway.

Hopkins was absolutely terrified by the encounter, and only in retrospect did he realise the extent of just how peculiar it had been. Per the visitor’s request, Hopkins erased all of the tapes from the hypnotic sessions, and withdrew from the case. He also later discovered that there isn’t, and never has been, an instituation named the New Jersey UFO Research Organization.


UFO Theories

Extraterrestrial Hypothesis

The extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) is the belief that UFOs are vehicles from other planets that contain intelligent life for the purpose of visiting earth.  

This being the most popular view among the public has been losing ground among those that have given Ufology serious study and thought over a long period of time. This is the perception that Hollywood has romanticized and advanced to the public but is probably the least likely. The chances of intelligent life climbing into to some type of space vehicle and visiting earth are pretty slim. Back in the 1930's this was the main theory put forward, since then physics and science have advanced to the point of making this theory almost irrelevant. It now seems that this is far too a simple explanation and in fact does not explain all the strange things reported by witnesses. The universe is not really as complex as one might think but it is full of things and knowledge that man has yet to comprehend or experience so the simple Hollywood explanation is probably far from realisti

Conspiracy Theory A UFO conspiracy theory is any one of many often overlapping conspiracy theories which argue that evidence of the reality of UFOs is being suppressed by various governments around the world. The prevailing thought is that earth governments, especially the United States and to a lesser extent Russia are in communication & cooperation with ETs and even allowing for a certain number and type of alien abductions.


Ancient Alien Theory

This theory is gaining in popularity and it proposes that extraterrestrial beings have been visiting earth since the advent of man. It puts forward that early man was in direct contact with these entities even benefiting from alien technology to build various pyramids and structures around the world. There is some strong evidence that man was much more advanced than originally thought or did have technological support from unknown resources. Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of human beings and that man's DNA may have an alien variant. Due to mans lack of sophistication, knowledge and technology these aliens were misidentified as religious deities or Gods and their technology were evidence of their divine status. Early writings and scriptures,such as, Vedas Scriptures, various San-script writings (from India, China, Pakistan) and even the Bible seem to confirm this hypothesis.

Long haul trucker Scott Murray was in Michigan, when he received a panicked call from his wife at home. His wife was in a terrible state, believing that she may have been drugged and raped. After immediately driving home, Murray took his wife to the ER, where they found no signs of a rape. There was a strange burn found on her right shoulder but little else, so Murray brought his wife home under the assumption that she’d had a bad dream.

The next day, Murray went out into the garden, and discovered four bizarre burn marks in the grass, in a circular formation. After looking above, he also noticed that a nearby tree had leaves 20 feet up that were burnt black.

In the ensuing week, Murray took his wife for hypnotic regression therapy, whereupon she recalled being taken into a spaceship in which they performed increasingly intrusive acts on her. She became increasingly paranoid and terrified, and one day Murray came home to find that his wife had ended her own life.

Desperate for answers, Murray sent samples of the burnt grass to a local college, who told him that they were radiation burns. However, the college suddenly changed their mind and claimed that they weren’t radiation burns, almost as if, in Murray’s words, “they were told to say that”.

Year: 1988

Country: Australia

Peter Khoury moved to Australia in 1973, where he met his wife Vivian. In February 1988, the couple had a sighting of some strange moving lights in the sky. However, it wasn’t until July of that year when Peter underwent a truly horrific experience.

While lying in bed, Peter felt something grab his ankle. Although was quickly numb and paralysed, Peter remained conscious and saw four hooded figures next to the bed. They telepathically communicated with him, telling him to relax because “it would be like last time.” Shortly after seeing them bring a long needle to the side of his head, he passed out.

After waking up, Peter found himself still in bed, and ran to the living room. Both his brother and father were dozing, unaware of anything wrong. Although they thought they’d only been asleep for about 10 minutes, they quickly realised that over an hour had passed. A puncture mark was present on the side of Peter’s head, and he couldn’t recall what had happened after seeing the figures.

In 1992, Peter had another encounter, far more troubling than before and disturbingly sexual. Because of the sexual aspects of his story, Peter was reluctant to go into details of his encounter until he met Bill Chalker, a leading Australian researcher in 1996.

After falling asleep on his bed, Peter woke up to find two naked, humanoid females sat there. Although they looked like human in almost every way, Peter noted that their eyes were about twice as large as normal, and their faces were very long. The blonde female grabbed the back of Peter’s head, and pulled his face into her naked chest.

Be warned, this story gets weird from here, and if you’re currently eating, you might want to save the rest of this entry until later.

Finished? Good, let’s continue. The blonde female was very strong, and Peter attempted to struggle out of her grip. Then, something pretty disgusting happened. Recounting the event, Peter stated that, “she pulled me over and my mouth was basically on her nipple. And I bit.” He felt a small piece of the nipple come away into his mouth, but the blonde didn’t scream or have any indication of being in pain. Peter accidentally ingested the nipple fragment and fell into a coughing fit. After recovering, he realised that the two women had vanished.

After managing to swallow the piece of nipple, he also realised that his genitals were in severe pain, and he found that two thin strands of blond hair were wrapped tightly around his penis. He was able to unwind the hair and place it in a sealed bag.

The hairs were eventually sent off to scientists from the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group, who discovered that the hair appeared to be human. However, it featured five different DNA markers that typically only belong to members of a Mongolian racial type. Further studies discovered that only four living women had the five markers, and they were all Chinese with black hair.

Conclusive answers for the strange event were never found, and members of the Physical Evidence Group are still hunting for clues that may lead them to the identity of the myserious women.


Year: 1979

Country: Scotland

The Dechmont Woods Encounter refers to an event in which a Scottish forester named Robert Taylor reported an alien abduction. To this day, it is the only UFO encounter that has resulted in a criminal investigation in the UK.

After entering a clearing half a kilometre away from his truck, Taylor witnessed a spherical object about six metres in diameter hovering in the air. Taylor later claimed that it appeared as if the object were trying to camoflage against its surroundings. After Taylor approached the object for a closer look, two smaller spheres dropped from the large sphere and rolled towards him. The spheres had small appendages, which attached themselves to Taylor’s trousers. After choking due to a strange, acrid smell, he fell unconscious while being dragged towards the large sphere.

Upon regaining consciousness, Taylor saw that the spheres had disappeared, and he slowly made his way back to the truck. Taylor attempted to call for help on the truck’s radio, but found himself unable to speak properly and attempted to drive home. After accidentally crashing the truck into a ditch, he walked the rest of the way home.

The ensuing police investigation was neverable to come up with a solid conclusion, although most believe that Taylor was telling the truth as he saw it. The popular explanation is that Taylor experienced an epileptic fit, hallucinating the event. Taylor has claimed to never had such a fit, before or since, and believed the encounter to be real until his death in 2007.

Country: United States

Two teen employees at the Buff Ledge summer camp, named in reports as “Janet” and “Michael”, were sat on the camp’s boating dock late one afternoon. The area around them was mostly empty, and as the sun began to set, a dazzling bright light appeared in the sky.

As Janet and Michael watched the light, it began to draw closer. Three smaller lights emerged from the main light, and erratically danced in the sky over the lake. Suddenly, one of the smaller lights quickly dove towards the lake, below its surface.

After a few minutes, the light resurfaced and flew towards the two teenagers. Revealing itself as some sort of craft, it began shining a bright beam of light towards them. Screaming “we don’t want to go,” Michael wrapped himself around Janet, and felt a strange floating sensation.

A moment later, the two teenagers were sat on the dock, watching the light vanish into the distance. They didn’t discuss what happened, and Michael later found out that Janet didn’t remember anything beyond the bizarre lights.

Following a decade of haunted dreams and obsessing over similar stories online, Michael sought regressive hypnosis. He recounted being taken aboard a mother ship, and having body samples taken by creatures with no ears, large eyes and hands with just three webbed fingers. The aliens told Michael that they were visiting Earth to “make life like ours… other places”.

After the hypnosis sessions, Michael was able to make contact with Janet again, and encouraged her to also try the therapy. Creepily, she recalled an almost identical story, even though she had was totally unaware of what Michael had described.



Year: 1957

Country: Brazil

Antônio Vilas-Boas, a 23-year-old Brazilian farmer, was working late at night, in an attempt to avoid the heat of the day. While ploughing fields, he noticed a bright “red star” in the sky. The star began to grow larger, until it was clear that it was flying towards his position.

Once it was close, Boas realised that it was some sort of egg-shaped craft, with a rotating dome on top. The craft landed in the field he was working in, and Boas moved to escape. He initially attempted to drive away in his tractor, but it died after only a short distance. Running on foot, Boas was grabbed by a short humanoid creature wearing a helmet and coveralls that seemed to bark instead of speak.

Three other beings with coveralls and small, blue eyes dragged Boas into the landed craft. Inside the ship, Boas was stripped naked and covered in an alien gel. Shortly afterwards, he was led through a doorway laden with red symbols that he was later able to reproduce for investigators.

After having blood samples taken, Boas was joined by another humanoid creature, though he claimed that this one was naked, clearly female, and highly attractive. The two engaged in sexual intercourse, and Boas stated that rather than kiss him, she had a tendency to lightly bite his chin. After the encounter, the female creature smiled, rubbed her belly, and pointed upwards, which Boas took to meaning that she’d raise their child in space.

Following this, Boas was given a tour of the craft, but was escorted off after he was caught attempting to take an alien device as proof of the encounter. Boas later became a successful lawyer, and swore that the abduction was true for his entire life.


Year: 1975

Country: United States

When it comes to alien abduction stories and UFO sightings, the identity of the person telling the tale is hugely important when it comes to identifying the tale’s validity. Therefore, it was a particularly exceptional case when an Air Force Sergeant named Charles L. Moody publically claimed to have been inside an alien craft.

While observing a meteor shower in Alamogordo desert, New Mexico, Moody saw a circular metal craft floating to the ground only a few hundred metres away. While descending, the craft suddenly began to move towards him. Moody ran to his car, but the vehicle would not start. The UFO was now only around 70 feet away, and Moody could see a human shaped form observing him from a window. After hearing a high-pitched sound, Moody felt numb, then saw the craft fly away.

Shaken by the incident, Moody arrived home after a long drive, but was shocked when he saw that the time was 3AM. He worked out that he could not account for around an hour and a half. In the days following the encounter, Moody began to experience lower back pains, and a rash broke out across his entire body.

Moody tried a form of self-hypnosis in order to remember what had happened during those 90 minutes. After a few weeks, he remembered that two tall beings had approached him while he was numb. Although Moody attempted to fight them off, he fell unconscious.

Moody woke up on a table inside the craft, totally paralysed, and a shorter alien telepathically communicated with him, asking if he would cooperate. Moody agreed, and the paralysis ended. After a short tour of the ship, Moody was told that there was a large mother ship above Earth, and that the beings would return to Earth again in two decades time.

In response to Moody’s claims, Charles McQuiston subjected him to his invention, the Psychological Stress Evaluation. Supposedly able to prove whether or not someone is lying, McQuiston concluded that Moody was being totally truthful about his encounter.


Year: 1989

Country: United States

In one of the most famous UFO abduction cases ever, Linda Napolitano claimed to have been abducted from her New York apartment, late in 1989. The case is particularly remarkable thanks to the multiple eye witnesses that were also present during the incident.

The event took place on the 30th November, at about 3AM. Linda herself had almost no recollection of what had happened immediately afterwards, and the details were slowly pieced together by a combination of regressive hypnosis and her memory gradually returning.

It soon emerged that she had been taken by three alien “Grays”, who levitated Napolitano out her apartment window, and into a large, floating ship. The story was backed up by two bodyguards of the senior United Nations statesman Javier Perez de Cuellar, who they claim also witnessed the abduction.

Several other witnesses also came forwards to confirm that they saw the event, event including Jent Kimball, who had a assumed it was a movie scene being filmed. Unfortunately, neither Napolitano or UFO researcher Budd Hopkins, who was heavily involved in the case, could convince statesman Cuellar to officially go public with the story.

However, the newspaper unveiled no secrets at all: the publications mentioned just several instances when UFOs were registered over Soviet military objects. What do these KGB documents testify to? Do extraterrestrials actually exist? Or, is it possible that the truth is more prosaic? Researcher from the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk Pavel Poluyan tells about it.  R

Many copies of such documents are kept in the archival depository of the Russian Geographical Society's Ufological Committee. The fact of UFO existence was more than once confirmed by Soviet military men. UFOs were observed from the ground and from the air, as well as registered on the radar screens.

The Russian UFOlogists have failed.

The "jellyfish" was a brief wonder in the West before being quickly solved (by me) as the launch of a rocket from Plesetsk.
