Esteemed UFO researcher Albert Rosales has compiled a raft of UFO sightings in 1954, most with little, strange entities.
This is his account of one:
Location. Petare Venezuela
Date: November 28 1954
Time: 0200ADriving a truck, Gustavo Gonzalez and his helper Jose Ponce found the street blocked by a luminous sphere 8-10 ft in diameter, hovering 6 ft above the ground. They got out to investigate, and saw coming toward them a dwarfish being 3 ft tall, with claws & glowing eyes. Gonzalez grabbed the little man, who wore only a loincloth, & lifted him up, finding him surprisingly light, hard, & hairy. The entity gave him a push than knocked him 15 ft. Gonzalez then tried to stab him, but the knife glanced off. Ponce saw 2 others emerging from the bushes with soil in their hands. They jumped up into the sphere, and shone a blinding light at Gonzalez. His antagonist also jumped in, and the craft flew away. Gonzalez was left with a deep scratch in his side.
