1947: The Year of the Crash - Part 2

This is the second of a two-part article submitted by our colleague Albert S. Rosales, who is well known for having one of the largest available databases of worldwide humanoid reports - Humanoid Sighting Reports & Journal of Humanoid Studies:

Location. Northeast of Capitan Mountains, Chaves County, New Mexico
Date: July 4 1947 Time: night
According to separate sources the Roswell base was closed to civilian traffic. Everything had to be done quickly. Near Corona rancher Mac Brazel had discovered something that had crashed there (on the Foster Ranch) most likely remnants of a “Mogul” balloon that probably had nothing to do with the real crash. However the military took the discovery very seriously searched the area and found a spot where a long, almost oval object, about 20 feet wide had come down. The military also found four dead bodies. The whole area was cordoned off by about 200 men. Every square inch was combed for wreckage. They loaded all of it onto truck and brought it to the Roswell base, specifically Hangar 84. Near the wreck there was a lot of debris. It consisted of some super strong metal. They tried to cut it and drill it, without success. “It was definitely not of this earth. Photographs reportedly seen later showed black and white glossy prints, one showing a rather flat, oval shaped object on the back of a flatbed truck. About 6 feet of the object projected out of the loading space on each side of the truck. The other shots showed the site, there was a heel shaped object, with its nose stuck between the rocks under a ridge. According to different sources the crashed object was delta-shaped, resembling a flying wing. Identical to the one photographed by William Rhodes over Phoenix Arizona on July 8 1947. Another witness interviewed by Stanton Friedman reported that he was an Army Air Force photographer at Anacostia Naval Air station in Washington D.C. when he and a fellow photographer were hustled aboard an army B-52 bomber and flown to Roswell Army Air Field during the 2nd week of July 1947. They were ordered to pack up their bags and told that cameras were waiting for them. After arriving at Roswell they got into a staff car with some of the gear with some of the gear the military had brought along and headed out about an hour and half north. When they got there they saw a large number of military personnel in a closed tent. They were then ordered to set the cameras and take pictures 15 ft away. The witness got in a truck and headed out to where the military men were picking up pieces of wreckage. An officer in charge kept ordering him and his partner to shoot different items. An officer met them there and accompanied them everywhere they went.

There were four alien bodies but inside the tent it was awfully dark. These four bodies were under a canvas, and they opened it up to allow the witness to take pictures. According to the witness there were 10 to 12 officers and when he got ready to go in, they all came out. The tent was about 20-30 feet. The bodies looked like if they were lying on a tarp. As it appeared to the witness the bodies seemed identical to each other, dark complexioned very thin with large heads. The smell inside the tent was very pungent. The witness then came back to the truck that was loaded with the debris and both photographers were then debriefed on their way back to Roswell. About 0400am the next morning they woke up and boarded a B-52 back to Anacostia. At Anacostia they were debriefed again by a lieutenant commander who said, “Whatever you think you saw in New Mexico---you never seen it, it just didn’t happen. You did not leave Anacostia at all.” Shortly thereafter the main witness was assigned to a project in Antarctica.

Additional testimony came from Sgt Melvin E. Brown, a cook at the Roswell base who was temporarily assigned to guard Hangar 84. He said that any men available were taken to clean the crash site. They had to form a ring around whatever they had to cover, and everything was put on trucks. They were told not to look and to take no notice, and were sworn to secrecy. According to Beverly Brown (daughter of Melvin) her father could not understand why they wanted refrigerated trucks. Brown and another man reportedly sat on the back of the truck to take the items to hangar 84. The alien bodies were packed in ice. And when Brown lifted the tarpaulin and looked in he saw 2, or possibly 3 bodies, according to him, the bodies were “friendly looking” and had nice faces. They looked a bit Asian but had larger heads and no hair. They were about 4 ft tall and their skin looked yellowish in color. Brown was frightened a bit, because he knew he shouldn’t be doing it, so he only had a quick glimpse. But he reportedly said they could have passed for Chinese---because they had slanted eyes. Then Brown had to stand guard duty outside hangar 84 and his commanding officer came up and said, “I want to have a look in. Lets both have a look inside”. So they both went into the hanger, but they didn’t see anything, as everything was packed away for storage, to be flown out the next day. Military records prove that Brown was stationed at Roswell at the time. Evidence indicates that Brown was sworn to secrecy and paid well by the Government to keep his mouth shut.

Another witness, Robert E. Smith was a member of the 1st Air Transport Unit which operated Douglas C-54 Skymaster cargo planes out of the Roswell base. In a 1991 interview he said that he saw the convoy of trucks with red lights and sirens, covered with canvas that headed over to a hangar on the east end, which was rather unusual. Smith was taken to the hangar to load crates into 3 or 4 C-54’s and the loading took at least 6, maybe 8 hours. The procedure was unusual, with armed guards, MPs and etc. The largest crate was about 20 ft long, 4-5 ft high and 4-5 ft wide. Officially they were told it was a crashed plane, but crashed planes usually were taken to the salvage yard, not flown out. It wasn’t an experimental plane either. (Smith was convinced that they had loaded a UFO that had mechanical problems). There was a lot of farm dirt on the hangar floor. Importantly, Smith said that he saw a little piece of metal that he could crumple up, let it come out, and he couldn’t crease it. This piece of debris was 2-3 inches square, it was jagged. When he crumpled it up, it then lay back out and when it did it kind of crackled, making a sound like cellophane. There were no creases.

Sappho Henderson, the wife of Capt Oliver Wendell “Pappy” Henderson, reported that her husband once confessed to her, “I want you to read this article (about Roswell crash) because it’s a true story. I am the pilot who flew the wreckage of the UFO to Dayton Ohio. I guess now they’re putting it on the paper. I can tell you about this. I wanted to tell you for years”. Henderson reportedly described the alien beings his plane was transporting as small with large heads for their size. He said the material that their suits were made of was different than anything he had ever seen. He said they looked strange. The bodies were packed in dry ice. Pappy’s daughter Mrs. Kathryn Groode, added that her father described the alien beings as small and pale, with slanted eyes and large heads, saying that they were “humanoid looking, but different from us”. Stanton Friedman found out that Henderson had talked about his mission to a number of old flight companions at a veteran’s meeting in Nashville in 1982, mentioning “small alien bodies”.

Alpha Boyd, of Hobbs New Mexico, reported that in 1971 when her father was sick in a Roswell hospital, he told her of the time when he had been a civilian mechanic working in a hangar (84) at the Roswell base in the summer of 1947 when he stepped outside for a smoke. He immediately noticed that there was a high state of activity going on with military personnel “scurrying around like ants”, and speeding vehicles seemingly all converging on the hangar he just come out of. Just then a stretcher being carried by 2 men passed by him and went into the hangar. On the stretcher was what he at first took to be an injured child. But on closer examination he realized that it wasn’t human (it wasn’t anything from around here). It was about 4 ft in length, very thin, but with an enlarged head and had only 4 fingers. He was grabbed almost immediately by the military, taken quickly from the area and told not to say anything about what he had seen. The next day Mr. Boyd injured his thumb on the job and went over to the base hospital to have it treated. While being treated he asked a nurse if she knew what was going on. She cautioned him that he shouldn’t be talking about such things. It was then that he noticed a foul smell permeating the air in the hospital, after which he left. Mrs. Boyd confirmed that a few years after her father had passed away (1974), her brother told her the same story.

Sergeant Thomas L. Gonzalez told Don Ecker that he was one of the men sent out to protect the crash site while the wreck was being salvaged. The craft had appeared to him more like a wing than a conventional disk. Then he had seen what he called, “the little men from Mars”. They were basically like human beings, he emphasized, and only their heads and eyes had been much bigger. He also stated that once he had a piece of this crashed UFO (statement confirmed by his children) and one could not make a dent on it with the heaviest hammer or scratch it with the best knife. Shortly after the incident Gonzalez was transferred overseas and that was the start of hard times for him and his family. The stress of having to live with a secret became too much for him, but he got over it after a period.

First Lieutenant Robert Shirkey, in his affidavit dated April 30 1991, stated that he learned later that “…a sergeant and some airmen went to the crash site and swept up everything, including bodies. The bodies were laid out in Hangar 84. Henderson’s flight contained all the material”. All of those involved, he said, were shipped out to different bases within two weeks.

Ruben Anaya reported that he worked at the officer’s club at the Roswell base and had a pass to the base. One evening, Anaya and his brother Pete were sitting with 2 guests, when the telephone rang. At the other end was New Mexico’s lieutenant governor Joseph Montoya with a panic stricken voice, begging to pick him up out of the base. So they set off in a car, went to Hangar 84 and wanted to go in to meet Montoya. But they were not allowed, there were MPs and town police. Then Montoya came out, white as a sheet, and really shook up, asking them to “get out of there”. As they arrived at Anaya’s home, Montoya (in Spanish) spoke about the UFO crash, saying, “There were four little men not from this world. One was alive”. He described the aliens as wearing silvery suits, with big eyes, disproportionately large heads and very little mouths. According to Montoya the aliens had lain on tables in the middle of Hangar 84. One of them was still alive, had sighed and moved its hand slowly. Its legs were bent. Since doctors were standing near the table, Montoya could not get closer. But he could clearly see that the beings had no hair on their heads, that their skin was “white” and that they wore one piece-suit which resembled those worn by divers. As far as Montoya could make out, they had four long fingers on each hand. Shortly after the beings were taken to the base hospital. Meanwhile pieces from the wreckage were brought in; they were only metallic fragments, none of which had looked like a large craft. Then he said, “Confidentially, they shipped everything to Texas, and those guys are in the hospital. Look if any of you guys says I talked about this, I am going to say you’re bunch of liars”. Later according to Ruben Anaya, all four of them---he, his brother Pete, Moses Burrola and Ralph Chaes were called personally by telephone by Senator Chavez, who had also called Frank Whitmore of radio station KGFL and said, “Joe Montoya was a dammed liar. He didn’t see anything…it was a very, very secret project, it could hurt us with Russia and Germany, if it comes out.”

According to the words of Barbara Dugger, granddaughter of Sheriff Wilcox, sheriff of Roswell, there was a big burned area, and Sheriff Wilcox saw the debris. Reportedly, Wilcox also saw four “space beings” and “one of the little men was alive”; “their heads were large”.

According to another “deathbed confession” from the wife and 2 children of the later Meyers Wahnee who was a pilot and Air crew commander of the 714th Bomb Squadron, 448th Bomb group, he spoke about the 1947 Roswell events during the last year of his life (December 1981). He stated that the incident was true and that he had been involved. He said that there were 3 separate sites. The bodies were found and first flown to Texas (Carswell AFB at Fort Worth) and many of the men displayed fear. He also mentioned decomposing body parts.

Captain Chester Barton, who was in the military service from 1929 to 1954, stationed at Fort Worth and Roswell, confirmed to the army historian Jose Stefula that he heard about the bodies taken to the base hospital and that the recovery operation was very quick. In an interview with Kevin Randle in 1990, John G. Tiffany said that his father had been a part of the crew of the flight that had started from Wright Field to pick up the material at Fort Worth. Investigation showed that Tiffany’s father was in fact stationed at Wright Field at that time. After landing at Fort Worth they had loaded the wreckage and amongst these a big container that looked like a giant thermos bottle. The material had been very light, but very tough, with a glassy surface. During the whole flight the crew had tried to bend, break or scratch it, but in vain. When the “weather balloon” declaration appeared in the papers, they could only laugh out loud. Later on his father had also learned about 3 bodies, 2 mutilated, one intact. The aliens reportedly had “gentle features” and a soft skin, and wore a kind of flying suit. After that a high ranking officer had instructed them never to speak to anybody about the incident. “It never happened”.

Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public relations officer at the base in 1947 and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases after the crash on the orders of the base commander, Colonel William Blanchard. Haut died in 2008 but left a sworn affidavit to be opened only after his death. He described seeing not just the craft, but alien bodies. Haut’s affidavit talks about a high level meeting he attended with base commander Col. William Blanchard and the Commander of the Eighth Army Air Force, General Roger Ramey. Haut states that at this meeting, pieces of wreckage were handed around for participants to touch, with nobody able to identify the material. He says the press release was issued because locals were already aware of the crash site, but in fact there had been a second crash site, where more debris from the craft had fallen. The plan was that an announcement acknowledging the first site, which had been discovered by a farmer, would divert attention from the second and more important location. Haut also spoke about a cleanup operation, where for months afterwards military personnel scoured both crash sites searching for all remaining pieces of debris, removing them and erasing all signs that anything unusual had occurred. This ties in with claims made by locals that debris collected as souvenirs was seized by the military.

Haut then tells how Colonel Blanchard took him to “Building 84” (hangar) one of the hangars at Roswell---and showed him the craft itself. He describes a metallic egg-shaped object around 3.6m-4.5m in length and around 1.8m wide. He said he saw no windows, wings, tail, landing gear or any other feature. He saw two bodies on the floor, partially covered by a tarpaulin. He described them in his statement as about 1.2m tall, with disproportionately large heads. Towards the end of the affidavit, Haut concludes, “I am convinced that what I personally observed was some kind of craft and its crew from outer space.” What’s particularly interesting about Walter Haut is that in the many interviews he gave before his death, he played down his role and made no such claims.

Glenn Dennis was a mortician working for the Ballard Funeral Home in Roswell in July 1947, which had a contract to provide mortuary services for the Roswell Army Air Field. One afternoon around 1315 or 1330, he received a call from the base mortuary officer who asked what was the smallest size hermetically sealed casket that they had in stock. He said, “We need to know this in case something comes up in the future.” He asked how long it would take to get one, and Dennis assured him he could get one for him the following day. He said he would call back if they needed one.

About 45 minutes to an hour later, he called back and asked Dennis to describe the preparation for bodies that had been lying out on the desert for a period of time. Before he could answer, he said he specifically wanted to know what effect the preparation procedures would have on the body’s chemical compounds, blood and tissues…he offered to come to the base to assist with any problem he might have, but he reiterated that the information was for future use. Approximately an hour later, Dennis got a call to transport a serviceman who had a laceration on his head and perhaps a fractured nose. He gave him first aid and drove him out to the base. He got there around 1700. Although he was a civilian, he usually had free access on the base because they knew him. He drove the ambulance around to the back of the base infirmary and parked it next to another ambulance. The door was open and inside he saw some wreckage. There were several pieces which looked like the bottom of a canoe, about three feet in length. It resembled stainless steel with a purple hue, as if it had been exposed to high temperature. There was some strange looking writing on the material resembling Egyptian hieroglyphics. Also there were two MPs present.

He checked the airman in and went to the staff lounge to have a Coke. He intended to look for a nurse, a 2nd lieutenant, who had been commissioned about three months earlier right out of college. She was 23 years of age at the time. He saw her coming out of one of the examining rooms with a cloth over her mouth. She said, “My gosh, get out of here or you’re going to be in a lot of trouble.” She went into another door where a Captain stood. He asked Dennis who he was and what he was doing there. He told him, and he instructed him to stay there, Dennis said, “It looks like you’ve got a crash; would you like me to get ready?” He told him to stay right there and then two MPs came up and began to escort him out of the infirmary. They said they had orders to follow him out to the funeral home.

According to Dennis, “We got about 10 or 15 feet when I heard a voice say, ‘We’re not through with that SOB. Bring him back.” There was another Captain, a redhead with the meanest looking eyes Dennis had ever seen, who said, “You did not see anything, there was no crash here, and if you say anything you could into a lot of trouble.” Dennis said, “Hey look mister, I am a civilian and you can’t do a damm thing to me.” The captain said, “Yes we can; somebody will be picking your bones out of the sand.” There was a black Sergeant with a pad in his hand who said, “He would make good dog food for our dogs”. The Captain then said, “Get the SOB out.” The MPs followed Dennis back to the funeral home. The next day he tried to call the nurse to see what was going on. About 1100am she called the funeral home and said, “I need to talk to you.” They agreed to meet at the officers club. She was very upset. She said, “Before I talk to you, you have to give me a sacred oath that you will never mention my name, because I could get into a lot of trouble”. Dennis agreed.

She said, she had gone to get supplies in a room where two doctors were performing a preliminary autopsy. The doctors said they needed her to take notes during the procedure. She said she had never smelled anything so horrible in her life, and the sight was the most gruesome she had ever seen. She said, “This was something no one has ever seen” As she spoke, Dennis was concerned that she might go into shock. She drew him a diagram of the bodies, including an arm with a hand that had only four fingers; the doctors noted that on the end of the fingers were little pads resembling suction cups. She said the head was disproportionately large for the body; the eyes were deeply set; the skulls were flexible; the nose was concave with only two orifices; the mouth was a fine slit, and the doctors said there was heavy cartilage instead of teeth. The ears were only small orifices with flaps. They had no hair, and the skin was black---perhaps due to exposure in the sun. She gave Dennis the drawings.

There were three bodies, two were very mangled and dismembered, as if destroyed by predators, and one was fairly intact. They were three and a half to four feet tall. She told Dennis the doctors said, “This isn’t anything we’ve ever seen before; there is nothing in the medical textbooks like this”. She said she and the doctors became ill. They had to turn off the air conditioning and were afraid the smell would go through the hospital. They had to move the operation to an airplane hangar.

Dennis drove back to the officer’s barracks. The next day he called the hospital to see how she was, and they said she wasn’t available. Dennis tried to get her for several days and finally got one of the nurses who said the Lieutenant had been transferred out with some other personnel. About 10 days to two weeks later, Dennis got a letter from her with an APO number. She indicated they could discuss the incident by letter in the future. He wrote back to her and about two weeks later the letter came marked “Return to sender---DECEASED.” Later one of the nurses at the base said the rumor was that she and five other nurses had been on a training mission and had been killed in a plane crash.

Recently information has surfaced that seems to indicate that the nurse was Miriam “Andrea” Bush, 27-year old secretary of the hospital administrator, Lt Colonel Harold Warne. According to her sister Jean and brother George, Miriam Bush came home one night in a state of total shock. Finally she said that there were a lot of strange medical personnel at the hospital she didn’t recognize and who ignored the regular medical staff. Later Warne would take her to an examination room and she saw several small childlike bodies. One was moving. Their skin was grayish to brown and they were covered in something like white linens. Their heads and eyes were large. The next day she came home and said nobody was ever to say anything further about it. The family thought she had been very heavily threatened. They said the event so traumatized her that it ruined her life. She died under suspicious circumstances in 1989, with bruises covering her arms, but ruled a suicide by suffocating herself with a plastic bag tied around her head (testimony of Pat Bush, Miriam Bush’s sister in law, about her death).

Astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s testimony:

Edgar Mitchell grew up in Roswell, New Mexico. He later briefed a committee of the Joint Chiefs on what he knew about the 1947 UFO crash and was told it was all true.

When former Astronaut Edgar Mitchell recently told the world that he had been briefed on Aliens and UFOs by the U.S. Government, the media reacted by treating his comments with disdain. Their own bias against any acknowledgement that Aliens might be visiting our world and unwillingness to accept the word of a national hero that UFOs are intelligently controlled spacecrafts from another world may have caused them to miss the historical significance of what he said.

Mitchell, a former Navy Officer and Astronaut that walked on the Moon, grew up in Roswell, New Mexico. Over the past several years he has indicated that he was living in the town when the 1947 UFO crash occurred and knew what happened based on conversations with first hand witnesses. He has also said that several other people with intimate knowledge about the UFO crash have taken him into their confidence. Mitchell gave this statement to Robert Collins:

“I grew up in the Roswell area. I was almost 17 and senior in high school when it happened. Family members were ranchers and cattle people. We knew all the ranchers and towns’ people in the area, including where the UFO impacted. In spite of official denials and threats about talking, the local lore told the story.”

“After my space flight, and being a local boy, people involved, not only the locals, trusted me with their stories, because they were getting older and wanted the truth out, but were afraid to say it publicly; so considered me a trustworthy source to carry their story onward. Been telling it all that way, if anyone bothered to ask my opinion, since the Pentagon incident 11 years ago. Only now, suddenly, it got international media attention.”

The Pentagon incident that Edgar Mitchell is talking about occurred after he requested and received permission to meet with the Intelligence Committee of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during April of 1997. Mitchell wanted to brief them on what he knew or had heard about the Roswell UFO Crash. After the briefing, Mitchell says he was told by a Navy Admiral that what he knew about the crash was correct. He recently commented on that meeting:

“ I did take my story to the Pentagon -- not NASA, but the Pentagon -- and asked for a meeting with the Intelligence Committee of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and got it. And told them my story and what I know and eventually had that confirmed by the admiral that I spoke with, that indeed what I was saying was true.”

When a Vice Admiral found out about the Mitchell briefing at the Pentagon, he wanted to attend. The Vice Admiral was refused access and told that he didn’t have a “need to know.” This interesting side story provides proof that the UFO secret is one available only to an elite group of Military Leaders within the U.S. Government. It also lends credence to the idea that the President and most elected officials probably do not have access to one of our nation’s biggest secrets.(9)

Then next case summary is based mainly on the alleged memories of one Gerald Anderson who was only five years old at the time. His testimony has been apparently discredited in certain circles but it does not stop me from including it:

Location. Plains of San Augustin New Mexico
Date: July 5 1947 Time: 11:30 a.m.
According to Gerald Anderson when he was 5 years of age, he and several other family members were out rock hunting in the desert area, when they came upon a gully near a shallow arroyo and saw an object that appeared to have impacted on a small slope. Curious, himself and his cousin walked towards it and noticed that one side of it seemed to have been ripped open, there was a lot of debris scattered around. They also saw four apparent occupants of the craft. One was sitting next to it and was apparently alive. Soon other witnesses arrived; some were college students from an Eastern university. But soon several armed military personnel arrived, these made threats to all those present and made them leave the area. The beings were described as wearing two tone gray uniform like outfits and small in stature. They had slightly lager heads than humans and huge bluish eyes; their skin was very pale. The hands were also long and slender. Two of the beings were apparently dead, one injured and the fourth was alive and appeared terrified. No sound was heard coming from them. This is probably one of the several crash retrieval incidents that occurred in the same area about the same time.(10)

The next case summary is an alleged event said to have taken place in China soon after the Roswell crash or crashes, it has only come to light in the past several years and there is very few information available on the event:

Location. Chengdu, China
Date: July 18 1947 Time: morning?
An incident that almost entirely mirrors the Roswell crash has been unearthed as occurring on July 18 1947, in Chengdu. A farmer near Chengdu found unusual remains of what appeared to be a crashed flying saucer or UFO in the fields. News spread and locals congregated to see the bizarre UFO wreckage. The head of the physics department of the local university, Professor Zeng Zhanhan was asked to analyze the wreckage along with other experts and a report was written up. The object was declared a UFO. At this point the military and the police stepped in and informed the academics that the wreckage was merely a weather balloon. Professor Zeng Zhanhan was then ‘asked’ to retract his analysis and confirm the object to be a weather balloon. The US military was stationed at the time in Chengdu and it is believed they were involved in this cover-up. The farmer, other witnesses and the professor were never satisfied with the ‘weather balloon’ theory. Rumors still persist that it was a UFO of alien origin. Since then numerous UFO sightings have taken place in Chengdu. The parallels with the Roswell case area obviously striking.(11)

The next case takes us back to the New Mexican desert but at an undisclosed location, it apparently involved some Native American witnesses and the recovery of a live ‘alien’:

Location. New Mexico Desert
Date: August 13 1947 Time: unknown
Six Native Americans discovered a still smoldering metallic disc shaped object that had apparently crashed in the desert. Inside they found an alien creature (not described) that was injured, but still alive. Hearing the approach of military troops, the men decided to keep the being from capture and care of him themselves. Taking him to their home, they found the being could communicate with them through a crystal device that conveyed images. The Indians called the being the “Star Elder”.(12)

The last incident in the list is supposedly a crash in early October of 1947 in Arizona is from Timothy Good and he quotes Frank Scully so should we take the information with a grain of salt?

Location. Cave Creek Recreational area north of Phoenix, Arizona
Date: early October 1947 Time: afternoon
22-year old Selman Graves and his 16-year old brother in law Bob Malody were rabbit hunting and exploring mines in what is now known as the Cave Creek Recreational area. At one point Graves and Malody climbed to the top of the most prominent hill in the area and looked south back at the ranch house of their friend Walt Salyer. They could see Salyer’s house, his corral and even his water tank. But when Graves looked west of the property he witnesses a scene that made no sense then and still haunts him five decades later.

What he saw can best be described as ‘a large aluminum dome-shaped thing sitting upright in the desert’, Graves said, “I thought it might be some kind of observatory dome, except why should a dome be located down at that elevation?” Graves also remembered seeing five men and two trucks near the dome. One of the trucks was of the military (2.5-ton) type, capable of carrying personnel or equipment. ‘But I didn’t see any equipment like cranes or anything like that,’ Graves said, “And the men didn’t seem to be doing any work. I could not identify a uniform.”

Using Salyer’s ranch for size and distance perception, Graves estimated that the dome was 36 feet (11 meters) in diameter and maybe a mile away. Graves never considered that he might have witnessed the crash of an extraterrestrial craft until 1952, until he read “Behind the Flying Saucers” a book by pioneer Ufologist Frank Scully. In the book, Scully wrote about the Cave Creek incident and cited an informant who told him that two humanoid bodies about four and a half feet all were retrieved, one sitting inside the craft and the other halfway out the hatch.(13)

Of course 1947 was not the only year of purported UFO crashes and recoveries there are documented cases and anecdotal evidence of cases before 1947. I have recently have accepted the fact that something did crash in the New Mexican desert all those years ago, exactly what I am not able to say for sure, but there has been a lot of disinformation and Government attempts to derailed public attention to this event, all that for a weather balloon? I don’t think so, besides the Nuclear Age the world was also introduced to another age, a new age of human understanding was suddenly upon us and we began to question our role in the Universe and the possible role of the others.

Just the Facts?: Huge Vortex on Saturn Moon -- Alien Abduction in New Jersey -- AIDS Vaccine Found?

Huge vortex seen on Saturn moon

Nasa's Cassini spacecraft has spotted a swirling green mass of gas at the south pole of Saturn's moon Titan.

Scientists say the polar vortex is turning faster than the moon itself rotates on its axis.

The formation of the vortex may be related to the changing seasons; Titan's southern winter is on its way.

The vortex may eventually form a "polar hood" - an area of dense, high altitude haze - just such a feature was seen over the north pole during winter.

Titan, Saturn's largest satellite, is covered by a thick haze composed of carbon-based (organic) molecules.

Cassini's visible-light cameras caught signs of a yellowish area forming in the haze over this region as early as March 27.

Clouds were first spotted massing around the south pole on 22 May when the spacecraft looked at infrared wavelengths.

"We've been watching this vortex become more developed in the last three to four months, and now, captured in exquisite detail, we're seeing finer-scale features within the detached haze than have been seen to date," said Jason Perry, from the University of Arizona, Tucson.

Since Cassini arrived in the Saturn system in 2004, Titan has had a visible "hood" high above the north pole.

It was northern winter during this period, and much of the high northern latitudes were in darkness.

But the hood - an area of denser, high-altitude haze compared to the rest of the moon's atmosphere - was high enough to still be illuminated by sunlight.

Saturn's August 2009 equinox signalled the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere for the planet along with moons such as Titan.

Now the high southern latitudes are moving into darkness. Scientists think the formation of the vortex at Titan's south pole may be related to the coming southern winter and the start of what will be a south polar hood.

On Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Venus and Earth, similar vortices are centered on the north or south pole.

However, the polar vortices on these planets are each distinct. Titan's south polar vortex also appears extraordinary in that it contains what appears to be a cloud of condensing organic material containing carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen.

Cassini despatched the piggybacked Huygens probe to Titan in early 2005. Huygens sent back valuable data from its descent through the moon's thick atmosphere and subsequent touchdown on the surface. - BBC

Alien Abduction - Atlantic County, NJ

Atlantic County - 7-6-12: First, I never remember seeing a UFO. I didn't even know I was being abducted until 2 days ago. I read some reviews of the book "Taken" and some red flags went up for me. I will start with how an abduction usually begins: Usually night but it has happened during the day. I am in bed and I feel a presence in the room then I feel like a heavy wait is on me, I can't move my body but can move my eyes and control my breathing. Then I fall asleep or at times it seems like nothing happened , the feeling just goes away. I only remember bits and pieces like a dream things like being in water I can breath. One afternoon, I remember lying facedown and hearing someone say "the disease resides at the base of the spine" but I now think it said device, the device resides at the base of the spine. I felt little tingled at the small of my back, no pain. On another night years later, a presence came into my room and said " you have no idea whats in store for you tonight" then it left. During the night I awoke to the worst pain on the left side of my face. I went to the emergency room, was admitted by a nurse but I left before being seen by a doctor. The worst part about this is I know when this is going to happen before they come. But when I get in bed I suddenly dont care! It's like it's ok to be taken from my bed for whatever reason. Even as I type this it's like there is nothing to worry about. It really makes no sense to me, I know I do not want this to happen to me. I feel like a prisoner in the back of my mind I know there is nothing I can do, and I must go. So this has gone on since I was in the 6th grade, Im 30 now. Being a psychic I thought it was a sprit or demon messing with me. This was nothing new, and I always felt I could handle whatever came my way... as a very small child I would follow "clear people" around the house. But I never told my family about it. I could also give a description of one face I saw but it is not like anything I have ever seen. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer and Jack Nicholias of MUFON New Jersey.

Marriage, based on love, banned in village

A village in India's Uttar Pradesh state has banned love marriages and imposed a series of restrictions on women, reports say.

Council leaders in Asara village have reportedly barred women under 40 from shopping alone and from using mobile phones outside.

They have also ordered women to cover their heads when outside.

Village heads say the measures are a response to cases of harassment, but PTI reports police are investigating.

The village council order was issued at a meeting on Wednesday, officials said.

The council also ruled that those marrying for love would not be allowed to live in the village, reports said.

Baghpat district, which is where Asara village is located, is only about 40km (25 miles) from the Indian capital, Delhi. - BBC


Shanghai Scientists May Have Found AIDS Vaccine

Shanghai scientists are claiming a breakthrough in the search for an HIV vaccine, with clinical trials on humans expected to begin in three years' time, given sufficient funding. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences, say they are the first in the world to use fruit fly cells to produce HIV-1 virus-like particles which then successfully generated immunity in mice.

Shanghai scientists are claiming a breakthrough in the search for an HIV vaccine, with clinical trials on humans expected to begin in three years' time, given sufficient funding.

Scientists from the Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences, say they are the first in the world to use fruit fly cells to produce HIV-1 virus-like particles which then successfully generated immunity in mice.

The HIV-1 virus is the most common strain of HIV viruses.

The scientists' research has been published in the leading Journal of Virology.

Currently, there is no effective treatment for HIV/AIDS. Medicines can only control duplication of the virus, not kill it.

Thus, a safe and effective vaccine is of vital importance if the spread of HIV/AIDS is to be controlled.

However, previous research into HIV vaccines has not gone smoothly.

In 2009, an experimental HIV vaccine developed in Thailand for the first time cut the risk of contracting HIV by 31 percent in humans after failed trials in previous years.

"But that vaccine can't be used for wide-scale injection on humans due to its low protection rate and poor effects on virus load reduction," said Paul Zhou, leading scientist in the Shanghai discovery.

"Concerning the previous researches on HIV vaccine, we decided to stick to the production of HIV virus-like particles," he said.

Virus-like particles resemble viruses, but are non-infectious because they do not contain any viral genetic material.

So far, VLPs have been successfully developed into vaccines for the prevention of infection by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and the human papilloma virus (HPV), the cause of cervical cancer.

Zhou said that current methods of producing HIV-1 VLPs had many limitations but his team developed a novel strategy to produce them using fruit fly cells.

In the laboratory, mice injected with the HIV-1 VLP developed an immunity against the HIV virus.

Zhou said his team's method of producing the VLPs boded well for the development of a vaccine against HIV-1.

"In the next step, we will do tests on monkeys.

"The success of monkeys will pave the way for clinical trials on human beings." - CAS

The A70 Abduction - Tarbrax, South Lanarkshire, Scotland

One UFO incident which has received a great deal of media attention is the apparent abduction of Gary Wood and Colin Wright on the A70 in August 1992.

Mr Wood and Mr Wright were delivering a satellite TV system to a friend in Tarbrax. They travelled on the desolate road when Mr Wright noticed a very large UFO flying about 20 feet above the road.

Mr Wood, who was driving, accelerated and as their car passed underneath the craft the pair - in Mr Wood’s words - experienced a "void of blackness". What seemed like moments later, they were on the same road as if nothing had happened.

When they got to their friend’s house, they realized their journey - which should have only taken them 30 minutes - had inexplicably taken them two hours and 45 minutes. In an effort to discover what had happened to them, the pair went under hypnosis. It revealed they had been abducted by small grey extraterrestrials while a tall, skeletal being communicated with them through telepathy. - Unexplained Events In Scotland


Friends’ UFO abduction claim sparked secret military probe

UFO investigators launched a top-level probe into claims two men were abducted by aliens in the Capital.

The legendary story told by Garry Wood and Colin Wright, who said they were examined by extraterrestrials after their van was ambushed by a flying saucer, is being turned into a film starring Billy Boyd.

But rather than being dismissed at the time as 
Hollywood fantasy, the 1992 incident was taken seriously enough to be investigated by the Ministry of Defence.

Garry, then a 33-year-old ambulance technician from Edinburgh, was driving a car to Tarbrax, South Lanarkshire, accompanied by Colin, 25.

The classified documents – released today – state that Garry “was driving along the A70 when the object dropped a curtain of white light in front of the car”.

The report continued: “His friend blacked out for what seemed like 10-15 seconds. He thought he had died. When he woke up the car was facing the other direction on the wrong side of the road. When he checked his watch he had lost about one hour.”

It describes the UFO as being 20 feet high and 30 feet wide, and black with no lights, and tells how the claims were reported to police, a doctor, a psychologist and a university.

Shortly after the incident, the pair visited paranormal investigator Malcolm Robinson, who convinced them to undergo hypnotic therapy, which was said to have revealed that the aliens experimented on the men.

Mr Robinson, who helped write A70 – the film based on the claims which will be released later this year – said the terms of the movie deal banned Garry from talking about the MoD report.

But speaking in 1996, Garry said: “I saw three creatures coming towards my car. I felt intense pain, like an electric shock. Then I was in some room. I saw these things like wee men moving about, doing something to me. Then this six-foot creature approached.

“It was white-grey in colour with a large head and dark eyes with a long, slender neck, very slim shoulders and waist.

“The little ones were about three feet tall and seemed to do all the work while the big ones did the communication.”

He said one of the aliens spoke to him and said: “Sanctuary – we are here already and we are coming here.”

Mr Wood also claimed that a red-hot, poker-like object was put into his eye, and he was surrounded by other crying humans.

The classified documents also reveal how an air crew on a flight from Aberdeen to Edinburgh reported seeing, from their cockpit, a “bright light” rising through the air in December 1996.

Meanwhile, George Foulkes, then a Labour MP, asked about the US Air Force’s Aurora project for a high-speed aircraft in the early 1990s, following reports of unidentified high-speed radar contacts around RAF Machrihanish in Kintyre. He was told the matter was an issue for the US authorities. - scotsman


The Hypnotic Regression

This is a transcript of a hypnotic regression session in A70 case (Colin Wright) supervised and conducted by Helen Walters:

Helen: “I want you to relive that night Colin, see it, feel it where are you?”

Colin: “Nowhere”.

Helen: “Where is nowhere”. Colin: “Just nowhere, complete blackness”.

Helen: “What are you looking at, what are you trying to see?”

Colin: “I feel I’m going up”.

Helen: “Going up?”

Colin: “Uh huh”.

Helen: “See it, feel it, can you hear anything”?

Colin: “Nothing” Helen: “See it Colin, nothing can harm you at this moment, listen to the sound of my voice”, Colin’s body jerked suddenly.

Colin: “ Creatures, I’m telling them to get lost”.

Helen: “Where are you”?

Colin: “I’m in a Bright room”.

Helen: “What are they doing”?

Colin: “They’re trying to undress me”.

Helen: “Tell me what’s happening Colin”.

Colin: “I’m sitting with no clothes on”.

Helen: “Where are you sitting”?

Colin: “A metal chair, it’s smooth and cold”.

Helen: “How do you feel”?

Colin: “Just cold”.

Helen: “Tell me what is happening Colin”?

Colin: “Something’s in my right eye”.

Helen: “What’s in your right eye”?

Colin: “I don’t know, it’s uncomfortable, like a red hot poker in the centre of my eye, it’s really sore”.

Helen: “Who is putting this hot poker I to your eye”?

Colin: “I can’t see anything”.

Helen: “Is your left eye open”?

Colin: “Uh huh”

Helen: “Why are you shaking your head”? At this point Colin was moving his head from side to side.

Colin: “I’m trying to get a good look at the thing, the thing that’s doing this to me to me”. Helen: “What’s Happening now”?

Colin: “Just took it out of my eye, my right eye’s really burning, my eye’s really watering, it’s gushing”.

Helen; “What kind of material was it, what did it feel like”?

Colin; “It felt like there was something clamped on it, that there was something going into my eye”.

Helen: “How did you get there Colin, how did you get there? I want you to relive your journey”

Colin: “The car is in a big, bright, metallic room”.

Helen: “How did it get there”?

Colin: “It was lifted”.

Helen: “How was it lifted”?

Colin: “I don’t know, I just feel it juddering and being lifted”.

Helen: “OK, go back to the beginning of your journey”.

Colin: “Just passing the reservoir on the left hand side, just passing the farmhouse on the right. Doesn’t make sense, there’s no road, nothing; the car is definitely off it. There seems to be some kind of force, there is nothing physical that I can see. I’m cold; I’m getting carried along at some rate”. Colin’s body gave a powerful twitch. “I’m in that chair again…something’s looking at me back in the corridor, it’s…it was…ahhh…it’s ugly”.

Helen: “Describe it Colin, describe the ugly thing”.

Colin: “It’s ugly and it’s lurking in that corridor, it comes and goes, it seems ancient to me. Ugly…it’s really badly deformed, I’m not scared of it any more”. Colin began to laugh. “It seems that this thing has been in a fight and it’s the loser. I think it’s trying to manipulate me”.

Helen: “In what way”?

Colin: “I don’t know, ii think I’m pissing it off because I’m not scared any more. I’m laughing at it, it’s weird it’s away”. Colin’s head turned to the right. “ I can hear a noise behind me, I can’t think of a word to describe it”. His body convulsed briefly. “I’m staring at a wee one”.

Helen: “A wee what”?

Colin: “ A wee creature, it’s not very happy with me, I don’t think I was supposed to look behind my chair for some reason. It’s looking at me with those black eyes but I’ll not give in”. Helen: “You won’t give in to what”?

Colin: “It’s trying to outstare me. It’s away; I don’t think it was very pleased with me. It just doesn’t want me to see what is behind me for some reason. If I try to do anything they’ll come round the corner and stop me”.

Helen: “What do you have on Colin”?

Colin: “Nothing, the chair is freezing, I keep wanting to get out of the chair but I bet it will be a big mistake”.

Helen: “Did they speak to you”?

Colin: “No, but I could tell it was pissed off. I’m looking at something, it looks like some sort of surgery tool, I think that’s what went into my eye”.

Helen: “Can you describe it”?

Colin: “It sort of comes down and bends to the left and then bends down again, it’s hard to describe. I’ve never see anything like it, it separates into four and there’s all just things hanging from it”.

Helen: “Move on from there Colin”. He convulsed again. “What’s happening Colin”?

Colin: “Two of them have got me by the feet and are dragging me toward a small archway”.

Helen “How did you get out of the chair”? Colin: “They grabbed me by the feet, I think I pushed them off”.

Helen: “What’s happening now”?

Colin: “They’re dragging me back to the car, they’re not fussy about hurting me”. More convulsions

Helen: “Where are you now”?

Colin: “Back in the car, back in the seat”.

Helen: “Do you have your clothes on”?

Colin: “Yes”.

Helen: “Go back to when you put your clothes on, what’s happening”?

Colin: “Putting my clothes on”.

Helen: “Who”?

Colin: “The wee aliens”.

Helen: “How many are there”?

Colin: “Four”. Again more convulsions. “There is a big alien in front of me doing something, my head is pounding. I don’t know if it’s giving me something or taking something out of my head. My mind goes black, then lighter, my head feels numb, it feels massive, it feels as if I’ve got a big forehead”. Colin’s hand came up and he rubbed forehead vigorously”

Helen: “What’s happening”?

Colin: “Shooting pain, I don’t know what they have done but it’s weird, my brain feels like it’s swollen and pushing my head out like it’s going to burst. I can’t handle this, it’s stopped, it’s weird”.

Helen: “Can you move on, where are you now”?

Colin: “Back on the road”.

Helen: “How did you get there”?

Colin: “Big bang then a thud”.

Helen: “Anyone in the car with you”?

Colin: “Gary’s looking at m, he’s bewildered, Garry’s asking me, did you see what I saw”?

Helen: “ Did you see Garry on your travels”?

Colin: “No, just now”.


What follows is a verbatim account from a recorded interview made on the Sunday the 25th of October 2000 between Garry Woods, Bill Devlin and Brian Allen. This interview was not conducted under hypnosis:

BA: “ I know you must be pissed off with the constant questions over the years, them and the same answers, but if possible could you try to forget it and pretend it’s the first time you’ve discussed this with anyone, will you try this”?

Garry: “Aye ok”.

BA: “How did you deal with the after effects of the incident”?

Garry: “After what happened, Colin and I went back looking in the area and found stuff that had been in the car, dusters, rags and bits and pieces, as if someone had been raking around in the car. After this my car started growing a white ‘foost’, [a vernacular expression for fungus or dust] all over it. (The car was an almost new Vauxhall Astra).

You know the kind of thing that develops on battery terminals, like crystallisation, but all over the car. I was always at the car removing this growth, rubbing down the paintwork and repainting it. I couldn’t understand it. I know cars, it’s my job, I’m an ambulance mechanic. I thought maybe it’s a bad earth, so I changed the earths but it made no difference. I tried everything but it made no difference, inside the boot, it was everywhere, this white crystallisation”.

Garry also mentioned a dream experienced by both men,

Garry: “I spoke with Colin at great length, talking even before we talked to Malcolm (Robinson), the only thing we had in common was, like, we both sort of had a dream, I don’t know, like we were away for ten years, and we came back and our family had all changed and everything like that. I know this sounds a bit…daft, but that’s kind of like the way that he thought and I thought”.

BA: “Did you actually dream this while actually asleep or was it a general feeling”?

Garry: “ No, it was just a feeling, really odd, a feeling”.

BA: “How did Colin deal with the situation”?

Garry: “Well, Colin at first was interested in it, talked to a few neighbours and so on, then he said he didn’t want to carry on with it, he knew what he saw and now he wanted to get on with his life. I tried to give him books on it but he said he didn’t want to go into it any more, but if I found out anything to let him know. He still come and sees me, we’re still mates”.

BA: “Do you think Colin be prepared to talk about it”?

Garry: “Yes, probably, I could ask him for you if you want”.

BA: “Fine that would be fine, Garry, about the girl you saw in the craft, what about her, what became of her, did you see her again”.

Garry: “I don’t know how this must sound, but all I could think of was getting out of there. I wasn’t interested in her, I didn’t care what happened to her, all I could think about was me, I wasn’t thinking how could I help her, all I was bothering about was me. I would have murdered, killed, anything to get away from there, I just wanted away”

BA: “The hypnosis sessions, did the information come directly from the hypnosis or immediately after”?

Garry: “Yeah, aye, ahha, Colin would talk under hypnosis, I wasn’t as good a subject, I seemed to find it more difficult”.

BA: “The actual experiences of being underground, OK, obviously I wasn’t privy to the original sessions, why do you think you were underground”?

Garry: “The things I saw underground, I saw a big craft in a big, huge open space under the ground.

BA: “: Was it the same as the craft you’d seen”?

Garry: “Ummm, it’s very vague in my mind and it was just like tunnels, dark tunnels”.

BA: “It’s possible that this underground situation might not necessarily be on earth…it could have been anywhere…off this planet…could have been somewhere entirely different”

Garry, “Well, the creatures I saw…I saw different things, the thing I remember is a being, right in my face. It said to me, I’ve got a life, a life like yours but different, things happen to us, but what’s got to be done’s got to be done”.

BA: “Did they ever tell you why they were doing what they were doing”?

Garry: Well, ah, it asked me for something and I was crying, I said, I can’t help you I’ve got a wife and children and this and that, and what it said it wanted was sanctuary”.

BA: That was in some of the stuff I got from Malcolm, yes, sanctuary. When they asked for sanctuary did they think that you…that we could supply this sanctuary”?

Garry: “I don’t know…ummm, it’s all…it said, your not living like you should be living, that’s what it told me, you’re not living like you should be living”’

BA: “Did it elaborate on that”?

Garry: “It said we were more advanced than them, it what way I don’t know, it said something about we were all capped, in what way I don’t know”.

BA: “Capped, as in stopped from developing”?

Garry: “Capped, I don’t know. They had a lot of trouble with the pressure because the big ones kept falling over but the wee ones weren’t”.

BA: “Like the gravity was too intense for them”?

Garry: “Like heavy pressure on them, they couldn’t handle it”.

BA: “Yes, ok”.

Garry: “Like pressure, I was two objects going away from my chest, just two objects going away…up in the…”.

BA: “You were lying down at this time”?

Garry: “ Aye, I was lying down and I saw two objects getting lifted away, physical objects lifted away. They turned me round, moved me, they were interested in my left leg. What it was, it sounds daft but these things were happy to see me, it was like they were glad, I don’t know but that’s what it seemed like”

BA: “Did they hurt you, do you think they went out of their way to hurt you or it was just incidental to what they were doing”?

Garry: “Between me and you I wasn’t terrible worried, I used to run out of my bed screaming at night, you can ask my wife.

BA: “ Was this prior to this or after”?

Garry: “After, it happened, I would get out of bed screaming at night, I would run out of the house, I would hug the covers. Kim [Garry’s wife] would say “You idiot, get back into bed”. What helped me; it’s why I’m in the nick [condition] I am today and have a better quality of life, is through Helen Walters and the hypnosis. If it wasn’t for that I’d still be scared.

BA: “So she helped you get it out, externalise it”?

Garry: “Whatever she did made me realise that whatever was done, whatever took place isn’t going to hurt me, that’s what I realise now and that’s why I’m not so scared now”.

BA: “The procedures they [the abductors] carried out on you, were they invasive”?

Garry: “It’s hard to…it’s…something took up the full width of my ear, it was buzzing, like interference, it was the full width of my mind and it was buzzing. There was this thing on the other side like a flap and there were two eyes on it. In this place there was like an object up on the wall and it was watching me and it was something horrible, I didn’t know what it was”.

BA: “Malcolm mentioned a lens type thing in the room with you”.

Garry: “Aye, yes, the black lens thing, about seven feet wide and it was the shape of a black eye and there were four packs, one there and there”. [Using his hands, Garry indicated the general shape of an eye with equidistant four objects framing it] “They were like, you know how you get a box of chocolates and some have lines on then the packs, they were like that? They were making this object fold in on itself like a black liquid and it would start spinning round and making a perfect ‘whooshing noise’. I’m used to listening to engines running and this was a perfect noise, a perfect like, whooshing noise”.

BA: “Whooshing, a whooshing noise,… like air being moved”?

Garry: “Aye, well like something, like it was all off balance then spot on like it was running perfect. They turned me round again and there was like a circular hole in the floor and there was a gel like substance like wallpaper paste, a clear gel and I saw something moving in it and one of these creatures climbed out of the gel. At this point I jumped out of the hypnosis. Now, some of these creatures looked like…they were bruised and had to be in this gel stuff, you know if you’re in water, it’s a good shock absorber say you were in a liquid it was in a vacuum. In a liquid you could move in dimensional arcs without being splattered, you know? I think this gel stuff was something to do with that”

BA: “You mean you thought it was something to do with protecting against ‘G’ force”?

Garry: “Yes like that, but it was connected with healing as well”.

BA: “What else do you remember”?

Garry: “I was taken to this place and I saw these things”. [Garry sketched out odd, almost sperm shaped objects]. “I saw these things like they were really, really thin and they had a funny shaped head and there were lots of them and they kept coming towards me, bending on themselves and going away.

Now, this place I was in, it was like a red mist and these things were swimming in the red mist and all these things kept coming, big ones and wee ones and they were all looking at me and then they were like, you know, an eel would do and they were all coming up looking. They would fold back on themselves and head away. I think these things; you know how you get tadpoles and frogs? Well.

I think these things were these bigger things, the tall things. [For clarification, I pressed Garry on this point: according to him, the reference to frogs and tadpoles is an earthly comparison to a pre-adult stage in the development of the tall, frail, translucent entities. We also discussed similarities between what Garry described and the phenomena of ‘Rods’, allegedly ultra fast, thin, eel like entities captured fleetingly on individual frames of film and videotape by researchers in Mexico].

BA: “ Garry do these images come separately like snapshots or do they flow smoothly into one another”?

Garry: “Like snapshots, even with the hypnosis it wasn’t clear, it jumped around”.

BA: “What about other hypnotic sessions”?

Garry: “Aye, I remember in one of the sessions… these things were strong… and they could move, oh yes they could move. This thing looked into my life, one thing I will state, right, put this on record, I meet people who know me and I don’t know who they are, its like certain sections of my life, years, are missing out of my memory, I can back this up with some of my friends. This thing looked into my life”.

BA: “Do you think it stole your memory”?

Garry: “Well, no, it never stole my memory, it looked into my life and I looked into it’s [life] and it couldn’t stop me… and it thought it was funny, it just… it thought it was funny. Then it said to me “I’ve a life like you but different, things happen to us” Like it was showing me. I don’t remember what it did show me, but it did, it did look into my life. And it couldn’t stop me looking into its and it didn’t like it.

It had a problem with it because I think in didn’t know I could do what I was doing to it. I was in a state, fear and this thing was you know trying to calm me down, like I was really freaking out. I would have done what I had to do to get away from there, I’d have stabbed, murdered, anything to get away. I remember rocks; somewhere they took us, like rocks. Have you ever seen slate? Jagged, all these rocks were like that, like slate sticking up.

These things were standing there behind the rocks, like they were waiting for us coming there. I also remember floating like you’ve no control over where you’re going. You can’t do anything because you’re just everywhere, no co-ordination, no control at all. I remember that because I was panicking.

There was another thing, later. Kim (his wife) took a seizure and I had to take the boys to her mothers. I was working and I couldn’t look after them, so I took them to her mums. It was half six at night I was heading back with the boys and I was worried, I was in deep despair, really worried and I was panicking and crying to myself.

Then there was this huge big, like thing, like a flash over the car, everything in the car, the whiteness, like magnesium white started to come in all over the car. It poured in all round us and the boys were screaming and…ahhh, I remember at the side of the road, stopped at the side of the road and I asked Garry (his oldest son) what he thought and he said “It was like being in heaven”. The youngest lad, he was being sick, but Garry, that’s what Garry actually said… “It was like being in heaven… like being in heaven”… - Brian J Allan, author of The View from the Abyss and Rosslyn, Between Two Worlds

Just the Facts?: Jurassic Germ Resurrected -- PNG Cannibal Cult Arrested -- MoD UFO File Highlights

Jurassic Park in a Petri Dish...uh oh!

A 500 million-year-old bacteria has been brought back to life in a laboratory at Georgia Tech in an experiment with echoes of Jurassic Park's disastrous recreation of the dinosaurs.

The researchers have resurrected a 500-million-year-old gene and inserted it into a modern E Coli bacteria.

The 'Frankenstein' germ has thrived. In the lab, the creation has now lived through 1,000 generations.

The scientists hope to find out whether the 'ancient' bacteria will evolve the same way it did 'first time round' - or whether it will evolve into a different, new organism.

‘This is as close as we can get to rewinding and replaying the molecular tape of life,’ said scientist Betül Kaçar, a NASA astrobiology postdoctoral fellow in Georgia Tech.

The new 'chimeric' bacteria has mutated rapidly - and some have become stronger and healthier than today's germs.

‘The ability to observe an ancient gene in a modern organism as it evolves within a modern cell allows us to see whether the evolutionary trajectory once taken will repeat itself or whether a life will adapt following a different path.’

‘The altered organism wasn’t as healthy or fit as its modern-day version, at least initially,’ said Gaucher, ‘and this created a perfect scenario that would allow the altered organism to adapt and become more fit as it accumulated mutations with each passing day.’

The growth rate eventually increased and, after the first 500 generations, the scientists sequenced the genomes of all eight lineages to determine how the bacteria adapted.

Not only did the fitness levels increase to nearly modern-day levels, but also some of the altered lineages actually became healthier than their modern counterpart.

When the researchers looked closer, they noticed that every EF-Tu gene did not accumulate mutations.

Instead, the modern proteins that interact with the ancient EF-Tu inside of the bacteria had mutated and these mutations were responsible for the rapid adaptation that increased the bacteria’s fitness.

In short, the ancient gene has not yet mutated to become more similar to its modern form, but rather, the bacteria found a new evolutionary trajectory to adapt.

These results were presented at the recent NASA International Astrobiology Science Conference. The scientists will continue to study new generations, waiting to see if the protein will follow its historical path or whether it will adopt via a novel path altogether.

‘We think that this process will allow us to address several longstanding questions in evolutionary and molecular biology,’ said Kaçar.

‘Among them, we want to know if an organism’s history limits its future and if evolution always leads to a single, defined point or whether evolution has multiple solutions to a given problem.’ - dailymail


Papua New Guinea Alleged Cannibals Charged

Authorities have arrested 29 people accused of being part of a cannibal cult in Papua New Guinea's jungle interior and charged them with the murders of seven suspected witch doctors, police said Friday.

Madang Police Commander Anthony Wagambie confirmed a report in The National newspaper that said the cult members allegedly ate their victims' brains raw and made soup from their penises.

"They don't think they've done anything wrong; they admit what they've done openly," Wagambie told The Associated Press by telephone.

He said the killers believed that their victims practiced "sanguma," or sorcery, and that they had been extorting money as well as demanding sex from poor villagers for their supernatural services.

By eating witch doctors' organs, the cult members believed they would attain supernatural powers and literally become bullet-proof, he said.

"It's prevalent cult activity," Wagambie said. He said he believes there could be between 700 and 1,000 cult members in several villages in Papua New Guinea's remote northeast interior. All of them might have eaten human flesh, he said.

According to the report in The National, which is published in Papua New Guinea, 28 men and women appeared in a Madang court on Tuesday. Wagambie said they were charged with willful murder.

It was not clear what happened to the 29th suspect. Murder is punishable by death in Papua New Guinea, a poor South Pacific island nation.

Wagambie said the suspects were not required to plea to the murder charges and were being held in custody.

Police will gather more witness statements before pressing charges related to the cannibalism allegations, he said.

Cannibalism was part of traditional culture in Papua New Guinea, where human flesh was known as "long pig," and survived in isolated pockets into the latter part of the 20th century while the country was under Australian colonial rule.

Wagambie, 36, said he had never heard of a previous case of cannibalism in his lifetime.

He expected police would make around 100 arrests over the weekend for cult-related crimes.

Four of the seven victims were murdered last week, Wagambie said, adding that no remains had been recovered.

"They're probably all eaten up," he said. - THP

Five highlights from the newly released MoD UFO files

UK’s National Archives published 6,785 pages on Thursday, July 12 from Ministry of Defence documents related to UFOs and extraterrestrials. This latest release is the ninth batch of UFO files to be released by the archives since 2008. Former Ministry of Defence (MoD) official UFO investigator Nick Pope told the Telegraph that this latest batch of released files is “absolutely fascinating” and it “contains a huge mixture of material that will be of great interest to anyone fascinated with UFOs.”

Twenty-five files make up these 6,785 pages, and the National Archives explains, “Topics include UFO policy, Parliamentary Questions, media issues, public correspondence, and UFO sighting reports.” The files include many interesting UFO sightings submitted to the MoD–some by pilots, police, and military officials. In case you don’t have the time or desire to read through 6,785 pages of documents, here are five highlights from the latest release:

MoD’s UFO Desk.
This latest release of files includes information about the Ministry of Defence’s “UFO desk.” Although many media outlets are reacting like this is the first mention of this post within the MoD, the UFO desk has been public knowledge for quite some time. Nick Pope, who is quoted in nearly every article related to UFOs in the UK, ran the MoD’s UFO desk from 1991 to 1994. However, the recently released information related to the UFO desk is mildly interesting. Documents detail the duties of the UFO desk officer, and the actual internal job posting for the position is in the files as well.

The need for a full UFO study.
A document contains a 1995 briefing by a UFO desk officer who cited the need for a “full study of UFO data as national security implications have never been properly assessed.” The officer states in the briefing, “The national security implications are considerable. We have many reports of strange objects in the skies and we have never investigated them.”

MoD officer suggests capturing a UFO to gain its technology.
In the briefing document mentioned above, this same UFO desk officer suggests capturing UFO technology for UK use. The officer states, “If reports are taken at face value then devices exist that do not use conventional reaction propulsion systems, they have a very wide range of speeds and are stealthy. I suggest that we could use this technology, if it exists.”

Keeping tabs on ufologists.
The files contain a copy of a 1996 Parliamentary Question from Martin Redmond MP asking if MI6 and GCHQ monitors UFO investigations, or keeps tabs on ufologists. The National Archives summarizes the response contained in the files, explaining that a background briefing says “neither agency in fact undertakes such activity, though GCHQ cannot rule out the possibility” they had monitored “in other contexts individuals who have made a study of UFOs.”

Tony Blair’s UFO briefing.
Former British prime minister Tony Blair was briefed on UFO documents. As the Metro explains, the MoD documents show “the former Labour leader was apparently concerned about information on the unidentified objects being released to the public, as a result of the impending Freedom of Information Act, so decided to find out what facts existed.” This came after author and researcher Nick Redfern urged him to “consider making available for public scrutiny all of the many and varied UFO reports compiled by the government.”

The Rural Abduction Phenomena

As I've mentioned in these pages before, I have a buddy who lived in the small town that Travis Walton lived (or still lives for all I know) in Arizona (Snowflake) - he knew TW to be a truthful person and his story to be real in his opinion. That is good enough for me concerning his case.

But as you know, the `rural' `alien abduction' involving crafts is not totally uncommon in UFOlogy but is indeed pretty rare. Especially with witnesses or even having any memory of the event when a Missing Time event occurs. And, all that is a lead up to a report sent to UDCC by Ken Pfeifer from the MUFON files - for me, the `twist' in this story is that the boys were YOUNG and UNLESS they were doing EXACTLY what he purports they were doing - would have been SEARCHED for by parents - based on his description of the event.

Could the aliens have KNOWN they wouldn't be searched for? Did the boys ask any adults if they had seen this? And of course, is this tale true or just a big fabrication? Continue reading at The Rural Abduction Phenomena

Reader Submissions: UFO / Humanoid Encounter - Near Coleman, Texas

I received the following email with images Wednesday evening:

I work as a hazardous material transport driver in the oilfield in north central Texas. I have been following the mystery lights story around the area. I have been seeing these lights as well. I had 3 sightings in an 8 day period in 2010. I was asked by MUFON to capture these images on camera. On the night of March 2, 2011 I got way more than I bargained for.

While at work around 9pm - 10 miles northeast of Coleman, Texas I was observing strange lights above the treeline near me. I took several pictures. Then the lights began to move straight at me. They were large, silent and unnervingly close. The shape of the craft could partially be seen now. It was 50 yards away and just hovering 50 feet above the ground and not making a sound. A large white light came on. I wanted to flee but was paralyzed with fear. I managed to get a shot with the camera.

There was a humanoid figure staring out of the opening. Definitely not human. I could see it from the waist area upward. I thought I would be abducted. To my relief it began moving away slowly. The large white light went out and soon the lights disappeared. Some lights where moving overhead around my location. 20 minutes later a huge craft came in directly over my head. Massive in size it blocked out much of the night sky overhead. It was probably the most amazing sight any human has ever seen. I pulled out the camera and had to wait for it to pass to get a shot. It was so large I could only get a piece of it in frame. It was moving so fast I was afraid I would miss the shot completely. It circled and went out as fast as it came in.

MUFON ask me to return to the sight and inquired as to the location, direction and angle of the photos. They told me the stars in the background had been verified for that time and location. I am amazed that this hasn't made the news. I believe these things came in so fast they were amazed that intelligent life existed here as I was at them for being here. The large ship seemed more like a floating factory built on a piece of meteor than a dwelling complex. The small ship seemed like a scout ship. It appeared to have some stealth technology that was partially disabled when the craft opened the doorway or window.

I have had a year to think about this sighting. I dont believe it matters so much as to whether I believe or you believe this. The fact remains that now they know we are here. Perhaps they always knew or maybe they never knew. Maybe they have been here always or have never been here before. Like the first Native American to report seeing a wagon train. I am telling you what I saw. Have evidence of what I saw. The images here are real images of something that we have always believed and been told doesnt exist. I believe we will see them again. RD
