The Alien Octopoids sighting was a bizarre extraterrestrial sighting that took place on the night of August 16, 1968, four miles away from Tivissa, Spain. The reported witness was a Spanish farmer named John Mateu.
Mateu would describe these almost unimaginable entities as resembling lightly colored octopi with either “four or five legs.” They were described as being no more than three feet tall.
- Tests performed at the site revealed the presence of abnormally-strong electromagnetic fields.
- This phenomenon was also observed by an Austrian couple who had set up camp in the area. The man, identified as Hans Volkert, allegedly snapped (and published) photos of the singe marks from the Octopoids' saucer, but, unfortunately, there seems to be no trace of them.
