These two cases are fairly lengthy, and the first one has been dealt with to a degree on our site. We have never discussed the Mongo photo, but it gets a good going-over here. I have gone to the NICAP site and taken some of the discussion about the photo. I think you will find it quite compelling.
You will see how serious these early investigators were about the photograph. Check out The 10 Most Important UFO Cases in Indiana History, Pt 2, and be sure to leave your comments.
They are touting the course as a "new international qualification in the study of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)." They are a number of sections of study including: Alien abduction, the phenomenon of crop circles, the feasibility of extra-terrestrial life, making contact, and the history of UFO sightings.
If you complete the course, you will earn the American Life Institute of Extra-terrestrial and Neuroscience School's Degree in UFOlogical Studies. See the complete article at Will Grimsby Institute UFO Course Take Off?. Well, are you ready to sign up?
There is quite a bit of information, so the entire story will be separated into several parts. Part one will include the following: Mysterious "Airship" Sightings / Vincennes (1897), J.

1) Some believe they are extraterrestrial because of their ability to fly much lower than conventional craft and do it silently.
2) Some believe they are a 'secret military' project. Either our government has developed this technology or reverse-engineered it from an alien source.
Recently there was a very compelling photograph taken of a triangle-shaped object. Check it out at UFO or Secret Fighter Jet? The Mysterious Triangle Craft Caught over Texas on Photo, and see what you think.
This report was initially made by MUFON's Mary Zimmer, who recommends a forensic scientific approach to study abduction cases. Despite debunkers claims that abductees suffer from sleep paralysis, dreams, illusions, etc., abductees claim they are experiencing real-life events.

The man who posted the information states that the photograph was actually released by the Brasilia Planetarium. The object is allegedly 3-5 thousand miles in diameter; WOW!
The only problem is that I went to the planetarium's web site, but couldn't find any photographs, so if you check it out, do so with an open mind. Go to Video - 3000 Mile Wide Disc Caught By ISS?, and be sure to comment if you wish.
She is first aware of her experience while sitting outside one night. Suddenly she has a feeling of being smothered. Then her vision begins to be affected... then she feels very cold, even in the warm Florida weather.
See what happens next by going to 2003 - Abduction Report from Florida, and as usual, your comments are welcome.
This latest article is attributed to investigator Evelyn Galson, who visited Francis in 2004. At times, when on an alien craft, she would see humans that she knew or had knowledge of. One of these was Whitley Strieber, the author of "Communion."
Take a look at this interesting account at The Abductions of Ann Francis, and comment as you wish.
The case has its peculiarities; one being that the beings involved in the abduction were very small beings, probably robots of some type. Bonnie called them "blue robots." Bonnie claims to have been taken to a spaceship of some kind, where she underwent an operation of some type. This left a cyst in the back of her head that she finally had removed some fifteen years later.
Be sure to check out her account at The Abduction of Bonnie Jean Hamilton, and as always your comments are welcome.
A woman lying in bed with her dog sees a light from her bedroom window. The light was encompassing, but soon it dissipated. But the worst was to come. Soon she heard a scratching at her window, and saw a grey-colored hand with long fingers which had punched a hole in the screen.
