Shortly after midnight on the 6th, an Italian security guard’s patrol car mysteri-ously quit running. At the same moment he saw four strange lights and stepped outside to investigate with gun in hand. Suddenly, he was struck from behind. “I whirled and shined my flashlight and saw this enormous green being,” he recalled. It is the last thing the guard remembers— in his conscious mind — until 105 minutes later when he found himself stunned by the blinding light and heat of a space-craft blasting off into the dark sky. Two weeks later, a group of experts listened in amazement as the 26-yearold guard, Fortunato Zanfretta, recounted under deep hypnosis the full details of his incred-ible UFO encounter. Their conclusion was that he was telling the truth. “I believe 90 percent of what he said was the truth,” said Dr. Mauro Moretti, the top medical hypnotist and physician who hypnotized him. And police say they found physical evidence to support the security guard’s story — a large, horseshoe shaped burn mark where the spacecraft was sup-posed to be and a 20- inch footprint which “could only have been made by a giant foot,” a police spokesman said. Zanfretta, a family man with a reputa-tion for honesty, was making his rounds in the village of Torriglia at about 11:30 PM when he saw strange lights at a cli-ent’s unoccupied villa. “As soon as I saw them, the engine, headlights, and radio in my car stopped working,” he recalled. “I took my gun and flashlight and went to see what was happening. I started to walk around the house. Someone pushed me in the back, like a punch. I whirled around, shined my flashlight and saw this enormous green being.
The ET escorted him to a very large, triangular spacecraft with several portholes and a round or semi-circular base. “He said there was brilliant light inside the craft and it was very hot,” Dr. Moretti continued. “There were rows of instruments and control panels. Inside there were about 10 ET beings like the one he had met outside. All the beings looked alike and they had fingers likeours.” Though they spoke no Italian or any other Earth language, Zanfretta said they communicated with him by “light signals and sounds” transmitted through a hel-met placed on his head. The helmet was so tight it gave Zanfretta a headache, Dr. Moretti said. Zanfretta did not need hyp-nosis to remember what happened when the encounter was over. He recalled: “The next thing I knew, I was standing in the dark, feeling groggy. The being wasgone. I picked up my flashlight from the ground and ran toward my car. “As I ran I saw this great, blinding light rise up. It was a UFO. I only saw that it was flat, triangular and white.
It was enormous and it gave off so much light and heat that I couldn’t see it clearly. When the space-craft was gone, Zanfretta glanced at his watch. It was 1:15 AM. He assumed he had fainted when he first saw the entity and had regained consciousness sec-onds before the craft took off. Giovanni Cassibba, another guard, was sent to find out what was wrong and found Zanfretta sitting in his patrol car, looking dazed. “His face was cold but his head felt hot,” Cas-sibba said. “He was in a state of shock.” The guard’s boss, Gianfranco Tutti, said: “I don’t believe in creatures from other planets, but I do believe in Zanfretta…” A huge triangular-shaped object also chased off two Chilean Air Force F-5E fighters at supersonic speeds — and then vanished mysteriously into the upper at-mosphere with other jets in hot pursuit. Af-ter an incredible chase that ended when he was forced to make a “combat dive” to escape, Capt. Lira Bustos declared, “I can now believe in other civilizations on other worlds. “The incident occurred on the 16th when a platoon of police in the town of Calama, along with thousands of civilians, spotted a giant UFO in the sky. Four jets were sent aloft and, follow-ing ground radar instructions, picked up the UFO at an altitude of 15,000 feet. The craft rose almost straight up as the jets approached, keeping the aircraft about 5000 feet below it. “Suddenly it appeared to be heading right at us,” recalled Capt. Lira Bustos. “I was scared. I hit the radio. ‘Verify that what I’m seeing is coming right at us,’ I radioed.” Another jetfighter pilot, Cmdr. Javier Pratt Corona confirmed the UFO — “an immense triangle with intense lights joining the edges” — had changed di-rection and Capt. Lira Bustos and another pilot went into a steep dive to avoid the craft. Comdr. Pratt Corona and another pilot, Lieut. Jose Fernandez Martin, then took up the chase as the Extraterrestrial craft headed skyward again. “I was shocked when I first saw it close,” recalled the lieutenant. “As I passed beneath it, it appeared to be completely staticliter-ally suspended in air. It gave me an eerie feeling in my gut. It’s impossible that any normal aircraft, with the huge dimen-sions of the triangle, could maintain itself airborne, completely stable.”
Patrick Thrush was driving in Bradenton, Florida, about 8:50 PM on the 13th when he spotted a UFO over the Braden River. As he pulled his car off the road onto an embankment the high beams from his car showed a silvery reflecting object hover–ing about 20 feet over the water. A tube extended from the object into the water. “I just sat there a second,” said Thrush, then he pulled his camera from the car, ran behind the car and snapped a photograph, using a strobe flash and the car headlights for lighting. As soon as the flash went off, Thrush said, the tube, which had been at an angle, straightened up and began retracting into the hovering object. When the tube disappeared, the UFO headed toward the embankment where Thrush was standing. He said he heard “several loud clanks” and a splash, suggesting something dropped into the water. The object descended slightly as it came toward him, Thrush said, estimating it was about seven feet above the hood of his car at its lowest point. He heard something hit the car hood, and then the object changed direction and moved rapidly to the west. When he got back to the car, Thrush said the headlights picked out three rocks about one-half inch in diameter. He gave two to Bradenton Police Patrolman Chris Schmidt. The rocks were analyzed as iron pyrite, a substance native to South America. Thrush said that each rock was warm and dry. “The edges were rounded and it had a lava-like appearance to it,” he said. Thrush estimated the UFO was about 25 to 35 feet in diameter and about 11 feet thick. He judged the object to be hover-ing about 35 feet from the shore. (Editor’s note: The June 1974 issue number 79 of Skylook [predecessor to the MUFON UFO Journal] published an interview with Pat-rick Thrush and photographs of both the object and the small rocks.)

Lighted Triangular Crafts sighted within minutes of each other HIGH OVERHEAD.
Lighted, 3 triangular crafts sighted within minutes of each other. Hello, this is to report a multiple sighting of triangular objects that were observed withing 17 mins of each other, location was at private house back yard near Oak Tree Road, Edison, NJ. Here’s the story… With the wash out of the Perseid meteor shower, gave it another chance so set up lawn chairs and waited, saw few streaks but nothing spectacular…..But at approx 4:10 am EDT observed a craft that was directly overhead traveling from south to north, it was shaped like an acute triangle with long sides/thin and had a blue white light on front of it and two rectangular type lights on each side. The lights were a diff color than the stars and when the craft would go in front of star it would blot it out ……..I would say this craft was orbital, for it traveled my field of view in 15-20 secs and was very high in night sky. Also, it did not shimmer like the stars did, just solid blue/white lights then to my surprise, spotted another craft of this type a few mins later (17) but it was to east on a south east to north west track, appox 70 degrees and moving at same clip as prior one. And then, another lighted triangle appeared but it was about 6 secs behind this one, having follow same track but as it drew near it acted in HERKY JERKY MANNER, slowing down and speeding up at times. Objects observed were about size of three pencil erasers held at arms length , and way up in the sky……….. Temp was 80 deg hazy hot and humid with a broken cloud cover that would dissipate at times …………sure looked strange and seeing the ISS station at times these craft looked nothing like that or any other terrestrial craft ………WEIRD NOTE: The above image is a real NASA photo.
Around 5:30 this morning, my husband was out in the back yard with our dog, when he began to shout for me to come outside quickly. I worried something was wrong, so I immediately ran outside, as he pointed to the sky. About a mile away, I saw a very prominent red circle or orb-like craft. There could have been a haze around it, but unsure if it was my eyes or not. The orb was definitive and red, though. I observed it and watched it in the sky as it was hovering. Then it very quickly zigged to the right, and stopped again. It turned from red to white, then back to red… What I couldn’t believe was the way it flew to the side and stopped immediately, not a gradual stop or eased stop, but a full-on stop, like it hit a barrier, and how fast it was moving. It hovered a minute, then zigged left, stopped, and it appeared to gain some elevation, as it slowly proceeded to fly to the right, and out of view for a few seconds, when I caught a glimpse of it again through the houses. I then observed it zing up into the sky so fast, I couldn’t believe it, and it was gone. I am a well-educated professional, and I am telling you there is nothing I have ever seen or heard of that 1. Is as precise in stopping as that craft was, it defied physics. 2. Could move that fast, and still maintain such control, and 3. Could maneuver so quietly. No propellers or exterior engines were visible, and without any vapor trail or exhaust. It was scary, and intriguing, at the same time. I have no doubt what I saw was not from here.
