This list is an ongoing project, where I am compiling modern paranormal and mythical cases from various sources. The hope is that you can use it to get the basic information a subject, as well as find sources where you can get more information. This list is updated regularly, as I’m continually working on adding in new cases, and updating old ones.

Listing are alphabetical, with numeric entries at the end. Included at the end of each entry are notes about activity, location, media source, and investigators, as well as my personal notes if they apply.

Abduction No. 1 - Betty and Barney Hill are the first people in the USA to report being abducted by aliens and get any publicity. In September 1961, while vacationing in New Hampshire, they encounter strange multicolor flashing lights on Route 3. It came at them, and suddenly they found it to be two hours later, and they were miles away. Their clothes were damaged, their watches stopped, and strange spots had appeared on top of the car. Barney developed PTSD and an ulcer. Under hypnosis Barney describes the encounter with the soundless light, alien creatures speaking telepathically with him, then being captured and paralyzed by grey aliens, dragged onto the ship, examined and experimented on by the aliens, before being returned to Earth. Betty's later notices her dress is covered in a pink powder. They kept the experience to themselves until contacted by a newspaper four years later.

- Betty's dress is now stored in the University of New Hampshire Archives. At least six laboratories have tested the dress, and the pink powder has been identified as mold, but no viable DNA was found.

- Conspiracy theorists believe that the fact that Project Blue Book took two years to finish their report, indicates a cover-up.

Alien Abductions (aka Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind) - Sometimes called Abductees or Contactees (Abductee usual indicates a negative view of the relationship with the aliens, while Contactee is more likely to indicate a positive view of the relationship), there are many people who claim to have been abducted by aliens, either after seeing a UFO, or from their bedroom at night. Sometimes people who have ‘missing time’ will ‘relived’ alien abductions through Hypnotic Regression ‘Therapy’. Common reports of abduction activity include, being awake but immobilized, reproduction related tests and experiments (including breeding hybrids and stealing fetuses), being given shots or probed, and having small implants inserted under the skin. Some abductees and researchers believe abductions to be generational, if the aliens took your parents, they’ll take you, and your kids. Twins, siblings, and significant others, have also been known to be abducted together. Abductees that have never met on Earth have also been know to run into one another after being abducted together. The first alien abductions were reported in the 1960’s, while UFO reports date back to ancient times.

- Abduction symptoms may include; strange marks (indents, burns, scars), unexplained illness (nosebleeds, aches), insomnia, increased dreaming, ringing in ears, flashbacks, new knowledge (of things like astronomy), being followed by UFOs, and lost time (missing memories).

Alien Bigfoot Theory - People in the 1960s started reporting seeing UFOs and Bigfoot at the same time. Native American tales of Crazy Bears seem to collaborate the story. This theory also accounts for fact the there is hardly any evidence for Bigfoot, particularly corpses. It is included in Project Blue Book, still listed as unexplained.

- One particular case centers occurred in 1966, at Presque Isle State Park, Lake Erie, Pennsylvania, where some stranded teenagers (another friend went to get help when their car got stuck) saw a mushrooms shaped UFO, followed by apparent searchlights, then Bigfoot. He attacked the car, and was gone before their friend returned with help. Police took them to the ranger station and questioned them overnight, then brought their car to them, refusing to let them back on the beach. Police and Air Force Officers took over the beach. A kid later finds some Bigfoot footprints, which end abruptly. Returning to the site, one of the teens found a tree had been removed entirely, including the roots being dug up.

- Another case takes place in Fayette County, Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania. In 1974 (or 1966?), a woman living in the woods hears noise she thinks are stray dogs. When she took her gun out to try and scare them off, she found herself looking at a Bigfoot. She shot at it, but it disappeared in a flash of light. Hearing the shot, her son in law ran out of his house, and saw several more Bigfoot which disappeared, and a bright light hovering over the woods. His wife called the police, who found nothing.

- 'Alien' Bigfoot footprints cast from Greensburg Pennsylvania have only three large toes. Another nearby case involves a Bigfoot carrying a glowing ball of light, and a UFO.

Alien Mummies - Some believe the tiny disproportionate mummies and skeletons found in some parts of the world (notably near Peruvian mines, which may have some connection to the Nazca Lines, humanoid sightings, local UFOs sightings, and poltergeist type activity in the mines) may not be deformed human infants, but rather aliens or an unknown earthly species. Opponents of this theory point out very real cases of birth defects.

- One researcher suggests 5% of elongated skulls are natural. Distant relatives of man? Or aliens?
