UFO Occupant Sightings

Sightings of UFO occupants have occurred steadily over the years, but tend to increase during sighting waves. By far the most common type is the small humanoid wearing "coveralls" and some kind of headgear, usually round or helmet-like. During close-range encounters with beings outside of their UFO craft, witnesses sometimes have heard unintelligible vocalizations and observed technological "tools." They have been observed "taking samples," "repairing their craft," and engaged in other activities.
Police officer Lonnie Zamora reported seeing two small humanoid beings standing next to a landed craft on April 24. 1964, in Socorro, New Mexico. Since Zamora was a well-known and respected officer, his report helped to legitimize 10 years of prior UFO occupant sightings that had been considered somewhat borderline by many people. His report made headlines nationally and, to some degree, internationally.
Some scattered reports of humanoid beings observed in association with UFOs were made as early as 1947. However, the earliest wave of such sightings occurred in Europe late in 1954, primarily in France and Italy. Major U.S. publications like Life and The New Yorker magazine reported the sightings, though inevitably with tongue-in-cheek commentary.
The reported beings typically were 3-4.5 feet (0.9-1.4 meters) tall and wore coveralls and round, translucent headgear resembling "diver's helmets." Light beams or other electromagnetic energy from the craft (or from the beings) had effects on animals and frequently paralyzed human witnesses. At the same time, vehicle engines and headlights failed. Some sort of aerial craft, usually round or disc-shaped, was observed.
In the spring and summer of 1955 scattered witnesses throughout the southern and midwestern United States reported sightings of UFO occupants. The most famous case occurred on August 21, 1955, near Kelly, Kentucky. Small beings with large heads and prominent ears besieged a farmhouse for hours shortly after the sighting of a descending UFO. 2 The 1955 U.S. sightings were not much like those in France and Italy the year before. As expressed by highly regarded contemporary investigators, Isabel Davis and Ted Bloecher:
"Most of the European and South American cases described beings associated directly with objects [i.e., apparent craft]; in the United States, the beings' association with an actual UFO was uncertain or even absent altogether. In several cases, the entities displayed details of appearance strikingly similar to some of the foreign humanoid reports— small size, large glowing eyes and clawed hands. In other respects, there were some notable differences; for example, none of the domestic reports described the `diving suits' that were so often reported in the French and Italian cases."
Very tight, form-fitting coveralls often are described, and sometimes what appeared to life-support systems. In other cases it seemed that the entities were breathing our atmosphere, or perhaps were robots. Quite a few reports describe backpacks, hoses, or tubes, elaborate headgear, and handheld boxes or instruments, indicating some form of technology analogous to ours.
The next major wave of UFO sightings, late in 1957, was concentrated in the southwestern and central United States, and featured unidentified glowing elliptical objects that landed on roadways in Levelland, Texas, as cars stalled. Scattered reports of UFO occupants came from all over the country during this wave. 3 Similar reports were made occasionally during the early 1960s. Then came Socorro, a growing frequency of UFO sightings in 1965, and, finally, the major UFO sighting wave of 1966-1967. UFO occupant sightings multiplied in these years; some of these are included in table 1.

UFO Occupant Sightings, 1964-1967
Major UFO sighting waves in the mid-1960s and in 1973 included dozens of occupant sightings. The 1978 wave included the internationally reported disappearance of a young pilot over Australia during his sighting of a UFO as he was describing it to air traffic controllers.
To what extent do earlier descriptions of UFO occupants match abductee descriptions of their reported captors? In some of the 1954 cases the witnesses saw very large or especially noteworthy eyes through the headgear, and in one case, on October 18, a human-appearing being was seen cooperating with two small humanoids.
On November 6, 1957, in Dante, Tenn., Everett Clark saw beings apparently enter a craft through its side without benefit of a door. Some of these features were reported before abduction reports.
Some speculative questions are these: Were some clues concealed in the numerous occupant reports suggesting a change in the behavior or strategy of the presumed aliens leading up to increasing abductions of human beings? Can a progression of occupant sightings, passive encounters, aggressive encounters, and abductions be traced? Did the growing rate of abductions signal the end of some previous phase of activities?
There have always been sporadic reports of less "humanoid"—even monstrous—beings associated with UFOs in addition to the reported small humanoids. Some were reported to be gigantic and/or grotesque in appearance, but usually there were no confirming examples by independent witnesses in other cases.
Sightings began to increase noticeably early in 1964, for the first time in six or seven years. Then the pace picked up gradually, accelerated in 1965, and remained at an unprecedented high rate throughout 1966 and 1967. Late in 1964 and early in 1965 a flurry of sightings was reported in and around Washington, DC, that attracted the attention of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It was rumored that government officials had been among the witnesses.
Throughout this period high-strangeness cases were common, but often they were high credibility, as well. By the end of 1966 the Air Force Project Blue Book UFO investigation was receiving heavy criticism, Congress was taking a closer look, and an independent scientific study was mandated. Occupant cases during this period often included "coveralls" and helmets or headgear of some kind, elliptical or disc-shaped craft, and face-to-face encounters. A number of examples are listed in table 2.

UFO Occupant Sightings, 1968-1972
The sighting wave tapered off early in 1968, and it was not until 1973 that the next major wave occurred. Humanoid occupant encounters continued sporadically, but UFO sightings in general received very little publicity. However, the same patterns were evident in the cases reported during these years, as illustrated in table 3.

UFO Occupant Sightings during 1973 Sighting Wave

Occupant Reports since 1973
Sightings continued in Europe—especially southern Europe—into the summer of 1974. Because of incomplete news reporting, the full extent of the wave that began in 1973 may have gone unrecognized. Occupant sightings continued at a fairly high rate throughout the mid- and late 1970s.
An unusual number of detailed cases with many intriguing features were reported during the major wave of 1978. Some of the features were beings descending from craft on ladders or light beams, beings gathering soil and plant samples, and occasional aggressive confrontations with humans that sometimes resulted in injury or illness. The geographical diversity of the sightings is noteworthy: reports came from at least 10 countries on 5 continents.
Occupant reports seemed to decline after 1979. There may be some significance to the fact that an upsurge of abduction cases was occurring in the 1970s just as "old-fashioned" occupant sightings—beings seen in or outside their craft on the ground—seemed to take on a more aggressive character and, then, in the 1980s, apparently became rare and abduction cases proliferated instead. Sightings during this period are included in table 5.
