Date: July 1959
Status: Unconfirmed

The Alors Incident refers to a series of close encounters which is said to have occurred on the Alor Islands, during the month of July, 1959. The Alor archipelago is located at the easternmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, the chain that runs through southern Indonesia.

The incident was accompanied by a rash of UFO sightings. [1] [2]

The Alors incident

In July 1959, residents of Alor Island reported encountering a group of six strangers on the east side of the island. The strangers were said to be about 1.80 meters with a red hue to their skin and white wavy hair. They wore dark blue clothes and pants with long arms and high collars, a belt with a gray cylinder hanging from it, and black military-style boots. They appeared to be searching for something. [1][2]

Suspicious of the strangers, the islanders are said to have surrounded them and to have attacked them with hunting arrows. The arrows hit them, but apparently failed to injure them. Six days later, further reports were made of the strangers, this time on the south side of the island. Reports of the strangers were also soon made on Pantar Island. In all cases, the strangers were said to be searching for something. [1][2]

During this time, it was reported that two people, a man and a six-year-old child, had been abducted. According to testimony given by the man, he was surrounded by the strangers who then paralysed him using the gray cylinders carried on their belts. Although he could not understand their language, he believed that they wanted him to act as guide. His account states that they let him go after a short period. The child was later found unharmed but in a confused state. [1][2]

Believing the stories to have been inflated, local police reacted with skepticism, but concerned that similar stories were emerging from villages located some distance apart, regional chief of police Alwi Alnadad visited the site where it was believed that the child had disappeared from. There, he and several fellow police officers are said to have encountered the strangers and fired on them, apparently failing to hit them even though they were at close range. Alnadad's account states that the strangers vanished almost as soon as they began shooting, leaving only a set of footprints that appeared to vanish after trailing for 5 meters. [1][2]
