Hello ATS people. Whilst my main focus on ATS tends to be political, i decided to undertake a bit of a research project. Years ago i read an account
of a man who was attacked by 2 large metallic objects about the size of a beach ball. We often read accounts of grey aliens and reptillians, sometimes
the odd nordic but how often do you read stories of mechanical beings? Estimates put this kind of encounter at around 3-5% of cases. After years of
reading reports i have only come across a few so i decided to put them all together here. If anyone has other cases then please add them.
I will post links to the full cases but i will summarise to keep the thread shorter. I have always been a skeptic and without clear evidence i cannot
believe anything. I present these cses only for informational purposes and i am not saying i believe any of the stories recounted actually happened.
So without furtherado, here we go.
Case 1 - Robert Taylor, 1979, Scotland
Link - en.wikipedia.org...
In 1979 a Mr. Robert Taylor had a very unpleasant encounter. It was the first case to be investigated by the local police and as off 2007 was the only
UFO encounter to be the subject of a criminal investigation.
He encountered a spherical object and commented that it seemed to be trying to blend in with it's enviroment. He approached the object when two
smaller spheres dropped out of the object, each being around 3 feet in diameter and rolled towards him. He described them as looking like sea mines.
They latched onto his trousers with some kind of appendage, he reports an acrid smell. They then proceeded to drag him towards the larger object, he
Upon waking he found he was having difficulty speaking and could not get to his feet. He crawled 100 meters and then managed to stagger to his truck.
He tried calling for help but could not speak to do so. Reports on what happened next vary, some say he drove home and crashed the truck, then walked
the rest of the way, others say he just walked home.
What should be noted is that Mr.Taylor was seen as a honest and reliable figure. He never asked for payment to tell his story and held true to his
story until his death at the age of 89 in 2007.
Case 2 - Jerry (James) Townsend, October 23, 1965, USA
Link - www.ufologie.net...
This case occured in 1965. Mr.Townsend was driving his truck and as he arrived at a curve in the road he encountered an upright, rocket shaped object
about 30-40 feet high, resting on 3 "fins" blocking the road. His car engine stalled, the lights and radio stoped functioning and he stopped his
vehicle. He exited his truck and walked towards the object.
At this point 3 small objects dropped out of the rocket shaped craft. These creatures were shaped like beer cans, they measured 6 inches tall, were of
dark brown colour and were "walking". When they stopped a third leg would come down to stabilise them like a tripod. They also had matchstick like
arms. He did not apprach the craft any further and the objects just stayed still, he felt like they were watching him despite not having any
discernable eyes. He estimates they stood "looking" at each other for 3 minutes.
The small "beings" returned to their craft, walking into a bright light and appeared to go up inside the craft. A few seconds later there was a
humming noise, the craft took off with a light showing. His engine restarted, the radio came on as did the lights. He checked the ground where the
craft had been but found nothing. He states his heart was racing and his legs felt like rubber. He then got into his car, drove to the police station
and reported the incident.
This case was investigated by project Blue Book who classed the case as "psychological". However others reported Mr.Townsend as being a level headed
character. As with many witnesses he later wished he had never publicised the story die to the ridicule he was subjected to.
A further note should be made that some local hunters saw a light disappear into the sky.
Case 3 - Lee Parish, January 27, 1977, USA
Link - www.ufoevidence.org...
Lee had been at a house watching TV with friends. He left when one of their tv shows finished so an accurate departure time can be given. The journey
home normally took 7 minutes, as he was driving he saw an object hovering over the treeline, the object he estimates was around 10 feet tall, 40 feet
long and was rectangular. He reports feeling a compulsion to look at the craft and couldn't take his eyes off of it. About 15 seconds into the
sighting he was feeling very frightened and then radio cut off. The UFO eventually hovered over his car and then sped off at great speed, it never
made any sound.
Upon arriving home his mother asked him what was wrong with his eyes, he looked in the mirror to discover they were entirely bloodshot, his eyes were
also painful. The journey had taken 45 minutes instead of the usual 7. Mr.Parish was put under hypnosis and taken back to the event. He remembers
being in a white room.
I am going to quote something from the link here.
Before him stood three objects which he instinctively felt or sensed were sentient beings, although they were definitely not human: a "black
one," a "red one," and a "white one." The black one was on his left. It stood as high as the ceiling and was roughly the shape of an army
silhouette target, jug-shaped, with a relatively small "head." It had a flat bottom and one "arm," a handless, one-jointed appendage. The arm was
rough-skinned the rest of the entity rough in patches, smooth in patches. The head was featureless. It moved slowly to Lee and touched him on the left
side and back, hurting him quite a bit and terrifying him. Throughout the regression, Lee kept repeating, "No, no, not the black one!" The sensation
of the black one touching him was somehow cold and burning at the same time, and he felt as though he were vibrating.
The "red one" was on his right. It was about Lee's size or a little smaller, and rectangular in shape, like a "Coke machine." It had one arm or
probe, unjointed and handless. Lee felt that the thing was scared and reluctant to touch him, but it, too, came slowly over and touched him on the
shoulder and on the right temple, above the ear and within the hairline. This felt like a needle and stung briefly, but did not terrify Lee and did
not hurt long. During this time, Lee felt quite cold. The whole ship seemed to be rocking like "a boat on the water," back and forth.
The white one was about six feet tall, Lee's height. It sat in the middle of the room, watching Lee. Its body was solid and blocky and its head
square on the sides, quite flat in front. In profile, the head sloped towards the body at a 45-degree angle, with no features. The whole being glowed.
It had arms, but did not use them, remaining stationary. Lee knew that it was the "ruler" of the other two.
I am leaving this case here, it sounds awfully like a medical lab with robots performing the experiments.
Case 4 - Donald Schrum, Sept. 5, 1964, USA
Link 1 - www.nicap.org...
Link 2 - www.nicap.org...
Mr. Schrum and friends were hunting with bows. Schrum became seperated from his friends and at sunset decided to sleep in a tree for the night. He
reports that he saw a white light zigzagging in the sky and thought that it may be a helicopter. He lit fires to attract it's attention. The object
came towards him, stopping 50-60 feet away, Schrum felt scared and climbed back up his tree.
Two humanoid beings and one robotic like creature approached the tree. Schrum reports that the creatures tried to dislodge him from the tree and a
white vapouur eminated from the robots mouth, he then lost conciousness. He woke up again and began lighting matches and throwing them at the beings,
they backed away. He says he fired an arrow at the robot and there was an arcing flash that knocked the robot backwards. The beings scattered. A
second robot came from the craft and once again the white vapour appeared, this apparently went on all night. Eventually many being emerged, there was
a great deal of the white vapour. He passed out and awoke hanging from the tree by his belt, the creatures were gone.
When he found his friends one of the other hunters reports being seperated from the others and seeing the same UFO.
Case 5 - Antonio La Rubia, September 15, 1977, Brazil
Link - www.ufoevidence.org...
I think i'll just quote a small portion of this one, the full article is linked.
Antonio La Rubia, a 33-year-old bus driver, encountered a huge object, which he estimated to be 70 meters (235 feet) across, sitting in a field
near his home. He decided to retreat, but was unable to do so, for at the moment he started to run, an intensely bright light lit up the area, and he
was unable to move. At that moment Antonio saw three "robots" positioned near him, and he was captured and taken into the disc.
So there we have it, a collection of close encounters with mechanical/robotic beings. I hope you all enjoyed the read
