MAY 1972, POSEN, WESTERN POLAND, POLAND, A WOMAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

British ufologist Jenny Randles apparently reported on an occurrence near Posen, Poland, on May 1972.

Late in the night, a female was onboard a bus following another bus, and at the time most occupants on both vehicles were sleeping, when she noticed a group of short human-like figures apparently standing on the roof of the first bus.

The beings appeared to be "semi solid" and appeared to be playing about on the roof. The driver apparently did not see them.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Posen, Poland, on May 1972, late in the night, the witness was onboard a bus following another bus and at the time most occupants on both vehicles were sleeping, when she noticed a group of short human like figures apparently standing on the roof of the first bus. The beings appeared to be semi solid and appeared to be playing about on the roof. The driver apparently did not see the figures.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Jenny Randles, Mind Monsters.

Points to consider:

Obviously there is no sign of UFO here and not one clue that the "half real" characters have anything to do with aliens.

When Jenny Randles asked whether "mind monsters" might be invaders from the inner space rather than from outer space, she possibly realized that this particular story, very poorly reported, of uncertain origin, likely to have not been investigated by anyone, can very well be a typical case of hypnagogic hallucination: it was late in the night, everyone was asleep, and the female witness quite possibly was just in the state of consciousness when these experiences occur. It is thus not at all astonishing nor paranormal that the driver, surely not sleeping, did not see anything.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
