Many cases from 2010 and 2011 are summarized in the issues of THE JOURNAL OF HUMANOID STUDIES and will not be duplicated here. After a busy 2011...2012 has proved to be a most interesting year so far with numerous assorted encounters and cases. Are we building up for something? Is this our last year to learn our real place in the cosmos? I suspect it will be my last year for collecting cases and I will start work in other projects.

AUGUST - DECEMBER 2010
Location. South Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Date: August 26 2010
There was a sighting of a monstrous bird in South Greensburg just as it was getting dark, four people were sitting around in the yard having a barbecue and enjoying the beautiful weather when suddenly, their attention was drawn skyward by a sound like a “swish” or a “swoosh” or as one witness stated, “like the air coming straight down.”
Several of the observers at almost the same time yelled out some exclamations including one man who said, “What the hell is that?” They were all startled to see a tremendously large bird that was flying over a tree in the yard about 30-40 feet overhead. The man who was going the cooking turned and looked up to see the creature fly above him at a distance of about 40 feet away. As the bird passed the tree, it veered slightly to the right and went straight down the road ahead maintaining its low level path. When first observed the massive wings of the creature were in an upward position and were beginning to drop slowly, almost as if they were rolling to the bottom. The swoosh sound could be heard when the wings were moving. The powerful bird had flown about 125 yards down the road, at which time the wings were coming back up. The creature was observed as it continued to move steadily down the road, passing just above the roof top of a house with its wings flapping slowly and steadily about 3-4 times until it reached a group of trees about ¼ miles away, where it was lost from sight. It took about 20 seconds to go the ¼ mile distance.
As it passed over, it appeared as though it was peering below, with its head and beak positioned downward. It was estimated that if the bird was on the ground it would stand between 4 ½ to 5 feet tall. The entire body was the same dark color, either darkish brown or black. The body width was about 25-30 inches wide. One witness said the body, “was very bulky and husky.” The head was oval shaped, and the beak was short for the size of the animal, about 8-10 inches long. The tail was about 2 feet long and came out wide to a point. It was the size of the wingspan of the creature that impressed the witnesses which they estimated at 10 feet or more in length. When asked why nobody thought to take a picture, they pointed out that while there were cell phones lying there with camera functions, all involved were mesmerized by the encounter. One witness felt as if he was almost ‘in shock’.
It was later learned that another witness who lied along the road where the big bird flew over also reportedly saw the creature. One witness has been a long time hunter and is very familiar with birds native to the state and is certain that he saw something quite unusual. The area where these observations have taken place, while surrounded with some wooded locations, is well populated, and nearby Route 119 is a highly traveled roadway. NOTE: Many refer to these giant flying creatures as “Thunderbirds”. It is interesting to note that over the years around the same general area as this sighting other residents have reported a similar “swoosh” sound, as thought a huge bird had passed overhead, but nothing was seen - Stan Gordon

Witnesses reported seeing a cigar-shaped object white and red in color. It had no wings and when it was flying it was tilted over going up. It also had a large clear window with little human-like figures looking out. No other information.

The witness had just finished watching the news and had gone outside and laid down on the round ottoman when he noticed what looked like a flock of geese flying over in the dusk or nor quite twilight. It occurred to him that they were flying in perfect formation so he got up and tried to look at them more closely. What he saw was a dark outline of a ‘Chevron’ floating over him around 1,000-2,000 feet up. He saw the outline of it and could see around 20 dark points on it all up and down the bottom of the Chevron and then after about 5 seconds he realized that the ‘points’ were actually strange human shaped bird-like figures that appeared to be flying on round platform-like disks on the ends of the top of the Chevron. They didn’t look human but more like ‘Birdmen”. However they lacked wings but some had what appeared to be large ‘bird-shaped heads’. The figure were very large, he estimated that they were at least 10 feet high. The Chevron looked like it was thin and not more than 15-20 feet wide from the bottom and between 100-300 ft long. The witness felt uneasy about the sight and went back inside the house. He did not go out the rest of the night.

Time: 03:00 a.m.
The young witness had stayed up late playing computer games and had gone to sleep around 1 am. He quickly fell asleep wearing nothing but his boxers. His bedroom was located on the second story on the southwest of his house. It has 3 windows on the front face of the house and has access to both the attic and the only fire escape on the building. The house used to be an old office building in which his bedroom was one of the offices used. His bed was located on the southwest corner next to a window and directly next to the fire escape door. This door has no handle on the outside and only a bar-release on the inside similar to what you would find on the inside of as school entrance door or office building. The actual fire escape on the outside of the door is nothing more than a metal platform and railing leading down the side of his house with metal stairs. He often used this to have a cigarette since smoking inside is forbidden by the landlord.
He awoke on this day around 3 am based on the dark of night outside however when he awoke he was already outside on the fire escape platform. He had not been not dreaming as far as he could tell since everything was the same when he was awake and have had many lucid dreams in the past, he was very groggy and confused as to how he had walked in his sleep. He had not sleep-walked since he was about 8 years of age. He almost immediately noticed something very large above him after this initial confusion, and took quick noticed to his door being closed behind him leaving him no way of re-entering his home. As soon as he noticed this however, he felt the urge to look at this large object hovering above him. As he looked up he noticed it was sort of rounded in shape but had numerous lights on the underside of it. It was directly above him so he had no news of the sides of the object. The lights were a very bright white. Nothing like any fluorescent bulb he had ever seen. These lights were flashing without any pattern it seemed and were located all over the underside of the object in rectangular and very long trapezoidal shapes. The object had to have been at least 250 feet in diameter, possibly larger. The underside of the object also had many things jutting out from it with these lights on it as well he took a firm notice of one in particular.
There was this large piece with the lights on the side of it coming out from the right of the object. Its shape was like an upside down cone with the end cut off. It resembled an air filter for a high performance engine in a car. It had symmetrical lights all around its sides that were identical to the ones on the underside of the object however the bottom of this piece jutting out was a very dark gray-black color. When he had first looked up, the lights were so blinding that he had to shield his eyes with one hand to see they were flashing and their shapes and locations. He observed all this within less than 90 seconds before he became extremely disoriented. He forgot what he was doing, where he was at and who he was. Almost as if these lights were inducing an acute case of amnesia. The last thing he can remember before passing out was the strange sensation of floating. He had never experience this before, but it was as if he were suddenly weightless. His feet were no longer touching the cold metal platform and he was no longer shielding his eyes. As soon as he was blinded by the lights that were flashing he seemed to lose consciousness, unless the lights caused me to forget everything leaving him no memory of anything afterwards.
Throughout these short minutes the object made absolutely no sound. It was as if it was making everything around it completely quiet. This was extremely strange since his home is on a main road, and relatively close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. He remembered the silence being almost suffocating, he felt very heavy, as if it were making the air thick like soup. In his short and very close observation, he remembered the object being about 20 to 40 feet above him and the space in between his house and the neighbor’s house, and the tree in between the front of their homes was blocking out a portion of this large object. There was no wind as if time had stopped in its tracks at least that’s what it seemed like to the witness.
After he lost consciousness it got extremely bizarre, he remembers waking up without any except for his sight and sense of balance. His eyes were not working correctly though. Everything was very blurry and distorted. He remembers very little, but he does remember everything was green/brown/gray in color around him. He also remembers seeing strange objects above him that appeared to be tools or examination equipment, none of which seemed to be created by humans. It was all very blurry though so it was hard to tell if that was exactly what it was. He then remembers a figure move into view above him. He was unable to move at all, and his vision was very poor so he could discern nothing about this being other than it seemed a little taller than he was and it had appendages like a human being (arms, torso, head, legs, etc). It did not speak to the witness however, who seemed to hear a voice in his head. It was much less a voice than it was a feeling or emotion being conveyed. The very last thing he can remember was feeling very calm, as if this being was trying to help him in some sort of way. The ‘trying to help you’ feeling he received was much less about him in particular, but more of a ‘you’ as in ‘your race.’ He then saw one of the objects above him move slightly, and he lost consciousness again.
When he came to he was sitting on the edge of his bed. His bed was made very neatly as if he had never lay down at all that night. When he looked at his alarm clock, the time was about 4:45 am. He tried to remember how he got there, but nothing came to his mind. He tried to sleep but could not, no matter how hard he tried that night.

Driving on Highway 191 a couple had pulled off to the side of the road after arguing briefly. They were at the County Road 46 intersection and it was still a bit dark but the sky was getting brighter. She stayed in the car while her boyfriend stepped out of the truck to get some fresh air. As he was about to finish he took a quick glance at the road behind them and noticed in the distance, a little less than a mile, a figure on the side of the road “hobbling” as it walked toward the truck. This surprised him in that they hadn’t seen or passed a person since they left Monticello. As he stood there, he realized it grew in size, meaning that it approached at incredible speed.
Backing up, he yelled at his girlfriend, “Get ready to leave fast!” At a dead sprint he ran into his truck and jumped into the passenger side only to find himself screaming at the top of his lungs at his girlfriend, instructing her to, “Go! Go! Go!” Slamming his door, he took one glance back outside his window as the truck peeled off, and saw what he said can only be described as the most mangy looking human/animal he had ever seen. He couldn’t tell if it was in rags or just a heavy---coated black animal running/hobbling very fast, as it did quickly catch up to the side of his truck. According to him, the way the eyes looked struck him with terror. They were very large, almost bulging out as would as praying mantis’s eyeballs, but with pinpoint pupils. Too afraid he looked away to his wife, who was starting to shake uncontrollably. He took the steering wheel realizing she also took a glance at this thing, her foot still flooring the accelerator. Trying to calm her down, he maintained a firm grip on the steering wheel for a good two minutes, finally looking over his shoulders outside the truck and saw, nothing. Half an hour later, they were driving into the city limits of Moab, Utah. NOTE: There are hundreds of such encounters with similar creatures all over the world. One must wonder what could have happened if the creature would have caught up with the witnesses? Perhaps it has happened before and someone is reported missing and never found again.

The witness was asleep when at some point in the night he woke up and walked to the door of his bedroom. He opened the door and was confronted by a short gray-colored humanoid with large black eyes. He felt shivers going through his body as well as fear. At this point he apparently blacked out and does not remember going back to bed. No other information.

Several farm workers on their way home in their trucks were forced to stop in the middle of the road as they came upon a strange humanoid about 90 centimeters in height blocking their way. The figure was brownish green in color with a large head, large pointy ears and huge protruding eyes and stood in the middle of the road staring at the startled caravan of workers. It stood staring at group moving its head constantly from side to side as if trying to say ‘no’. It finally moved off to the side of the road and disappeared from sight. Once this happened the witnesses were able to continue their trip.

Around midnight the witness and his girlfriend were on their way home after meeting a friend to get a guitar he bought from him. On their way back, the road was very iced over and with snow. They were traveling at 25mph or less. As they were going around a right handed curve something on the right side of the road caught his eye. Then when his headlights hit the being or figure, it got on its knees and placed its very long and skinny arms on the ground. The arms were 3’ or longer in length and 1” around. As they passed the being, it remained very still, as if it was trying to conceal itself. The being was about 5’5” on its knees so standing it would have been over 6’ tall. Very dark gray, with no fur or hair, the eyes were about 3” and almost round. One thing he thought was strange was when his headlights hit the being its eyes didn’t glow like a deer or other animal. There were two large black bag-like items not far from the being. After they passed the being he looked at his girlfriend and asked what the hell that was. She said very fast she didn’t want to talk about it. Less than half a mile up the road he turned around and rushed back to try and figure out what it was. When he returned to where the being had been it was gone and the big black bag-like items were gone with it. He took less than three minutes to get back to where the being had been. He got out and looked and found no footprints or any other signs that something had been there. The snow on the ground was untouched. At this time he became frightened thinking that the being might had been just past the tree line looking at him. So he got back into the car and drove home.
