FISHERMANS CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH TWO ALIENS IN HAMPSHIRE
AUGUST 12,1983 HAMPSHIRE ENGLAND
On August 12, 1983, 77-year-old Alfred Burtoo was enjoying some fishing in the Basingstoke Canal in Aldershot, Hampshire, United Kingdom. He was a keen and experienced fisherman, and since the weather report predicted a warm, fine night, he set off from his home in North Town, Aldershot, at 12:15 a.m., accompanied by his dog Tiny. On reaching Government Road he headed toward his fishing site, about 120 yards north of the Gasworks Bridge. Because of its many military establishments Aldershot is known as "The Home of the British Army," and Alfred Burtoo himself had an Army background, having served in the Queen's Royal Regiment in 1924 and the Hampshire Regiment during World War II. Well known as a historian, he had in his time worked as a farmer and gardener, and while living in the Canadian outback hunted bear and fought wolves. Prior to his experience he had read no books or magazines on the subject of UFOs, which held no interest for him, yet much of what he claimed has been corroborated by other witnesses. After getting comfortable, his concentration on the water was interrupted by a bright light descending from the sky. Whatever this was, it landed not too far away from Burtoo. There was a Mod base in the vicinity, and he thought maybe he had seen a helicopter land. Burtoo had just poured himself a cup of tea, when his dog Tiny became very nervous. Two beings suddenly appeared out of the darkness. "They were about four foot high, dressed in pale green coveralls from head to foot," Burtoo told reporters. "and they had helmets of the same color with a visor that was blacked out." The two beings beckoned for him to follow them. He obliged. Burtoo would later say that he was afraid of nothing, and regarding his encounter, which would have terrified most people, said: "What did I have to fear? I'm seventy-eight now and haven't got much to lose." Burtoo followed the two strange beings until they arrived at a flying saucer that had set on the ground. He ascended the stairs leading up to the craft until he could go no further. The ceiling was too short and he had to bend over to continue. He was now inside of a black, metallic chamber. The room had a foul smell, like decaying meat. "I did not see any signs of nuts or bolts, nor did I see any seams where the object had been put together," he recalled. "What did interest me most of all was a shaft that rose up from the floor to the ceiling. The shaft was about four feet in circumference, and on the right-hand side stood two forms similar to those that walked along the towpath with me." The curious old fisherman was then instructed to stand underneath an orange light. This light seemed to scan his body for several minutes. "What is your age?" asked one of the beings, in a voice which sounded like "a mixture of Chinese and Russian". When he told them his age, he was told that he could go. He was told he was too old and sick for their purposes. Burtoo then walked out of the ship, down the stairs and back to this fishing spot. "The first thing I did was to pick up my cold cup of tea and drink it," he recalled. "...then I heard this whining noise, just as if an electric generator was starting up, and this thing lifted up then took off at a very high speed. I got into what I had come out for...the fishing!" He would later tell newsmen that it was one of the greatest experiences of his life. There was no physical evidence of the crafts landing, and no marks of any kind on Burtoo. He did experience some loss of appetite and weight loss as well as some difficulty sleeping, but that passed after a short time. Burtoo was the only witness, and we may have to take his word, as he was not given to making up stories, and had no reason to perpetuate a hoax. He gained nothing from his experience except being in the local papers. Despite Mr Burtoo having passed away on August 31st, 1986, with almost religious regularity the local news papers write an abbreviated story about Mr.Burtoo’s encounter each year to coincide with the anniversary of this now famous encounter. His wife, Majorie, was asked if he had every confessed to her that the encounter was a hoax. She vehemently denied that Burtoo lied..."what Alf told you was the absolute truth. My friend who was with me when Alf came home can verify what he said. He looked absolutely shaken and he told both of us about his experience that he had with the UFO...."Omar Fowler, chairman of the Surrey Investigation Group on Aerial Phenomena, which includes pilots and scientists among its members, added: "This is really an exciting case. I believe it to be genuine." - The National Enquirer, July 17, 1983

ALIEN CRAFT INJURES TWO MILITARY SOLDIERS IN BRAZIL
NOVEMBER 4,1957 SAO PAULO BRAZIL
At 2 o'clock in the morning of November 4, 1957, at Fort Itaipu, located near Santos, São Paulo, Brazil, two guards were stationed atop of the highest observation tower facing the ocean when they observed a very intense bright orange light in the sky. At first, they thought it was a star with increased brightness for some unknown reason. Then they realized it was an object coming down at high speed, directly over the fort. At about 1,000 feet (305 meters) above them, the object reduced speed and slowly continued to descend noiselessly until it suddenly stopped and hovered at about 50 meters over the guards. At this altitude, the sentinels were able see the shape of the UFO, which was circular, with an apparent diameter of 100 feet and with an orange glow. The guards were afraid, and did not react. Each was armed with a submachine gun, but no thoughts came to their minds to shoot at the UFO or to sound the alarm. At this time, they could hear a strong buzzing sound, like that of a generator, which emitted from inside the UFO. Suddenly, it shot downward a strong heat wave hitting the two soldiers. It came with great intensity, but no flame or beam of light was visible. The heat wave set their uniforms on fire and one of them, overcome by the intense heat, was knocked down unconscious. The other soldier, screaming in pain and fear, threw himself on the floor and crawled under a canyon for shelter. The cries awoke the garrison, but before any of the soldiers could respond to the area, all of the lights and electricity went out. Only a moderate heat penetrated the interior of the fort, but this, along with total darkness, was enough to cause panic. After three minutes or so, the heat subsided and moments later, the electricity came back on. Some soldiers came out running to their battle stations and many reported seeing the bright UFO moving away and disappearing up high in the night sky. The two men, in shock, were brought into the fort with first and 2nd degree burns on more than 10% of their bodies and received medical treatment. Next, the commander of the fort sent an urgent message to the headquarters of the Brazilian Army. Shortly thereafter, the Brazilian Air Force was put on full alert and patrolled the area. After the incident, the fort is closed and put under investigation by the Brazilian government. Since the United States was known to possess more knowledge about UFOs, high-ranking Brazilian authorities requested assistance from the American Embassy in their investigations. Almost immediately, officers of the Brazilian Army and U.S. Air Force flew to the fort, accompanied by researchers from the Brazilian Air Force. The result of the investigation was not made public. The sentries were burned still in serious condition, but were able to talk from time to time. After hearing their description of the incident, with details of the approach of the UFO and the alien heat, left the researchers wondering why the guards were attacked. The case of Fort Itaipu was kept secret for a long time and yet, the episode continues to this day without an explanation.
