The Planet Serpo Exchange Program

Did the Planet Serpo Exchange Program really occur? Frankly, I have serious doubts about the supposed operation, though I remain open-minded and I'm always open to research. For the most part, much of the information goes against testimony of other abductees and witnesses who I have had contact with during the past 30+ years. Len Kasten's books are interesting and his many interviews are thought provoking...but I'm still unconvinced of the authenticity (I have links to Kasten's books and others after the post). Read this link - PROJECT SERPO - then read the following information. Let's begin:

PROJECT SERPO - The Zeta Reticuli Exchange Program

Project Serpo is the name of an alleged top-secret exchange program between the United States government and an alien planet nicknamed Serpo. Details of the exchange and what it was supposed to have entailed have appeared in several UFO conspiracy stories over the last 30 years. The first mention of a 'Project Serpo' was in a UFO email list maintained by enthusiast Victor Martinez.

According to the most common version of the story, an alien survived a crash near Roswell in the later 1940s (see Roswell UFO incident). This alien was detained but treated well by American military forces, contacted its home planet and eventually repatriated. The story continues by claiming that this led to the establishment of some sort of relationship between the American government and the people of its home world – said to be a planet of the binary star system Zeta Reticuli. Zeta Reticuli has a history in ufology (including the Betty and Barney Hill abduction), having been claimed as the home system of an alien race called the Greys.

The story finally claims that twelve American military personnel visited the planet between 1965 and 1978 and that all of the party have since died, from 'after effects of high radiation levels from the two suns'. There is much more information at Serpo.org

...here is another take on Project SERPO

The gradual release of confidential documents pertaining to a top secret exchange program of twelve US military personnel to Serpo, a planet of Zeta Reticuli, between the years 1965-78

The original posting by Anonymous, and three apparently independent supporting comments from other list members:

First let me introduce myself. My name is Request Anonymous. I am a retired employee of the U.S. Government. I won't go into any great details about my past, but I was involved in a special program.

As for Roswell, it occurred, but not like the story books tell. There were two crash sites. One southwest of Corona, New Mexico and the second site at Pelona Peak, south of Datil, New Mexico.

The crash involved two extraterrestrial aircraft. The Corona site was found a day later by an archaeology team. This team reported the crash site to the Lincoln County Sheriff's department. A deputy arrived the next day and summoned a state police officer. One live entity [EBE] was found hiding behind a rock. The entity was given water but declined food. The entity was later transferred to Los Alamos.

The information eventually went to Roswell Army Air Field. The site was examined and all evidence was removed. The bodies were taken to Los Alamos National Laboratory because they had a freezing system that allowed the bodies to remain frozen for research. The craft was taken to Roswell and then onto Wright Field, Ohio.

The second site was not discovered until August 1949 by two ranchers. They reported their findings several days later to the sheriff of Catron County, New Mexico. Because of the remote location, it took the sheriff several days to make his way to the crash site. Once at the site, the sheriff took photographs and then drove back to Datil.

Sandia Army Base, Albuquerque, New Mexico was then notified. A recovery team from Sandia took custody of all evidence, including six bodies. The bodies were taken to Sandia Base, but later transferred to Los Alamos.

The live entity established communications with us and provided us with a location of his home planet. The entity remained alive until 1952, when he died. But before his death, he provided us with a full explanation of the items found inside the two crafts. One item was a communication device. The entity was allowed to make contact with his planet.

Somehow, I never knew this information, but a meeting date was set for April 1964 near Alamogordo, New Mexico. The Aliens landed and retrieved the bodies of their dead comrades. Information was exchanged. Communication was in English. The aliens had a translation device.

In 1965, we had an exchange program with the aliens. We carefully selected 12 military personnel; ten men and two women. They were trained, vetted and carefully removed from the military system. The 12 were skilled in various specialities.

Near the northern part of the Nevada Test Site, the aliens landed and the 12 Americans left. One entity was left on Earth. The original plan was for our 12 people to stay 10 years and then return to Earth.

But something went wrong. The 12 remained until 1978, when they were returned to the same location in Nevada. Seven men and one woman returned. Two died on the alien's home planet. Four others decided to remain, according to the returnees. Of the eight that returned, all have died. The last survivor died in 2002.

[Clarification (BR/ Victor Martinez): the paragraph above contains a typo in the original. Twelve team members went, and eight returned – two having died on Serpo and two having chosen to remain; these two were not ordered to return.]

The returnees were isolated from 1978 until 1984 at various military installations. The Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI) was responsible for their security and safety. AFOSI also conducted debriefing sessions with the returnees.

NOTE: I was told by another source that all of the returnees died within 8 years of their return and that they were kept in isolation. The returnees were never allowed to contact family members...in fact, the families were told that their loved ones were lost during secret operations and that their bodies could not be retrieved. Lon

NOTE: I originally posted some of this information in January 2010...but I have updated most of it for this post. This link is a must-read - PROJECT SERPO. There is an excellent article at News on ‘Project SERPO’ deceptions takes researchers, public on complex paths to truth and International officials met with ETs in November?. Also check out SERPO Release 34: 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA' - Humanoid Infiltration. Much of the film 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' was based on the supposed SERPO information. A member of the USAF, who was familiar with Project Red Book informed a colleague in 1988 that Steven Spielberg, and others involved with the film, received a fair amount of 'technical advice' from military personnel familiar with the Planet Serpo exchange program. Regardless of that statement, I still remain skeptical of the information...Lon

More recently:

Victor Martinez (an alias), a former US government employee who coordinates the email communication activity, says that confidential sources who are current and former US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) officials told him about an unusual meeting.

Martinez reported that his anonymous source(s) stated that on 12 November 2009, extraterrestrials who have been in contact with elements of the US Government for several decades, met with US and international representatives on the remote Kita Island (aka Akau Island by US government).

Kita Island is part of Johnston Atoll, which in turn is part of the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA), and is located 750 miles south west of Honolulu.

The source(s) said that the extraterrestrials landed their craft on the island, are from a planet in the Zeta Reticuli star system, and are referred to by US personnel as the “Ebens”. The Ebens met with a total of 18 representatives from the US, the UN, Russia, China, the Vatican, and certain other guests. US representatives included five military personnel, two intelligence officers, one linguist, and one person representing the Obama administration.

Statement: A whistleblower nicknamed "Victor Martinez", that claims to be a former US government employee, with contacts inside the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), alleges that on Nov. 12, 2009, occurred a secret meeting between extraterrestrial entities and U.S. plus international representatives in the remote Akau Island, part of the Johnston Atoll, an U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean 750 miles south west of Honolulu. Martinez also has been exposing details of a supposed exchange program of US military and aliens, named SERPO. I don't know if this guy is saying the truth, about the meeting or about the program, but definitely there's SOMETHING in this atoll. Some areas were tampered on Google Earth, but are still visible large underwater structures, around Johnston Island, pretty symmetrical to be coral reef.

NOTE: Again...I have my doubts. Let's see what develops in the future. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: 'Can MUFON help me get an ultrasound?' -- MH370 Wing Segment Case Keeps Getting Weirder -- Shark Attacks Board...Surfer Uninjured

'Can MUFON help me get an ultrasound?'

Eugene, OR - 2015-07-19 - 12:00AM: I was in bed. It was late. Two of my cats had decided, very unusually, to sleep tightly on either side of me. It's like they had an intuition that someone might try to take me away. I heard a very soft female voice, kind of metallic-sounding call my name. I said out loud "That sounds like someone said (my name). Then from ahead of me in my bedroom, a louder female voice said my name, then asked "Are you ready?" I said out loud "It must be the aliens." Then I said out loud "No, I'm afraid". (Apparently once they contacted me I had been aware on some level that I had met these aliens before, but I always thought it had been a dream, or I had forgotten.) But they came anyway. These women appeared in my bedroom. They wore what looked like white nurse uniforms with old-fashioned white nurse caps on, and they appeared to be dark haired and vaguely Asian human looking. I floated above the bed, and one of the nurses lay down between my cats where I was. The cats were apparently still asleep or immobile. The rest of the aliens who made themselves look like nurses, probably to lessen my fear, and I floated right through my bedroom wall. I think I was on a stretcher. I had some lost time, then I found myself walking with them inside a spaceship. I walked in a circle around a room in the ship. There were many aliens there, all appearing mostly human, who were looking at me. We stopped in front of a dark haired mostly human-looking man with long hair in little braids, like I used to wear my hair. He had light green skin and a large forehead but otherwise looked human. Suddenly my hair was in braids again and I laughed and said "I've got braids too."I felt friendly toward this alien man.I think they have the ability to take pictures out of your mind and make themselves and yourself appear different. Then more time was lost. When I woke, I was on a table with many of the nurses around it on both sides. There was a white balloon between my legs and off that end of the table the balloon was large. It felt like someone was having sex with me. When I saw the balloon I realized this was not a dream and that this must be an abduction experience.I think the male alien was inside the balloon, almost like a whole body condom. Afterward, I asked one of the nurses "What just happened?" She said "What did you want to happen?" I said I wanted a baby. She said you'll get your wish. I asked if humans would notice I was pregnant. She said no, except for Thursday. She said it's called The Great Stink and that my house would stink. I felt at ease with these aliens as if they were my friends and I'd known them a long time. I think the man with the braids was who impregnated me, but it was not his true appearance. I went through menopause 4 years ago but am on hormone replacement therapy. I never had a child, but I had a thought come into my head a few days previously that if there was a way to reverse menopause I wouldn't mind having a baby.In what I thought was a dream, once, aliens told me that I was the only human who was able to receive messages they sent telepathically, and that they sent ten to twenty a day, but that I only received a few of them. I think they put that thought into my head, that I wanted a baby.We talked some more then I blacked out, then I felt myself being lowered onto my bed, right between the still-sleeping cats. I rolled over and went to sleep and remembered everything in the morning. One month later, on August 16th, I saw a red laser beam light on the pillow next to mine. I trembled with fear and said no, please go away don't come. But after a few minutes of lost time, two alien women came into my bedroom. They walked through the outside door, just through it. When they showed up I felt no fear and felt they were my friends that I already knew. They said they were here to give me an exam. This time they did not try to hide their appearance. One was a grey alien and one looked almost human but she had larger than normal eyes and a high forehead. They put a rubber tube around my left arm and asked if I'd been taking vitamins and hadn't taken any "anesthesias" I think they meant drugs. I said yes I'd followed their instructions. I asked the human-looking one if she was 3/4 human and 1/4 alien and she said yes, 3/4 white. I asked if that's what the baby would be and she said yes. I said "I like that look it's very attractive." They were very friendly to me and after a few minutes, they noticed me looking at the grey alien a little bit afraid and suddenly they appeared to be wearing hoodies. I must confess that after the first remembered abduction I had read on the internet that the grey aliens were doing a breeding program and hybrids were supposed to seed the Earth soon. I had asked them does this mean they were able to reverse menopause and they didn't answer. There are other details but I'm getting tired of typing and I'm not sure I haven't said too much already. I have had some signs of pregnancy but so far no positive pregnancy test. I want to get an ultrasound but my doctor would think I was crazy if I asked. Can MUFON help me get an ultrasound? I would be 5-6 weeks pregnant now and according to the internet they come for the fetus after 9 to 11 weeks and implant it in a female hybrid. I want proof that I'm pregnant and they are going to show me the baby after it is born but I want proof that this isn't just me imagining the whole thing. Please contact me. I just woke from a nightmare that government agents were coming to talk to me and that they may not like the aliens. I want to stress that I'm always terrified at first of the aliens, but that after they show up I'm at ease and that they've always been very kind to me and friendly. I like them and I think they are benevolent and only want to help mankind and at the same time save their dying race so hybrids are a great solution.Please contact me soon. - MUFON CMS


The Case of the MH370 Wing Segment Keeps Getting Weirder

When a wing section of a Boeing 777 washed up on the Indian Ocean island of La Réunion last month, the Malaysian government quickly ascribed the part to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. But an ongoing investigation has failed to verify this claim, and the story just keeps getting weirder.

Shortly after the flaperon washed up, Boeing engineers confirmed that the wing segment belongs to a 777. And MH370, which went missing in March of 2014, is the only 777 unaccounted for. So case closed, right?

Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak figured it was, and on August 5th, he released a statement announcing as much to the world. But minutes later, French investigator Serge Mackowiak countered the prime minister’s remarks, saying that more tests were needed to conclusively determine the wing segment’s origin. Those test results were supposed to come within a day. Then it became a few days. Now it’s been several weeks.

What’s the hangup? According to New York Magazine, the ID plate that should have been attached to the inboard edge of the flaperon is missing. This plate, affixed to all 777 flaperons, ought to contain a serial number linking the part to MH370. Its absence has not only stymied the verification process, it’s resulted in other aspects of the wing segment coming under (perhaps excessive) scrutiny.

For instance, the flaperon was covered in barnacles. Barnacles everywhere! And people are freaking out about it. Barnacles all over seems to suggest the wing segment spent the last several months suspended beneath the ocean surface. But how?

While it’s easy to imagine a submarine or a scuba diver hovering peacefully 10 or 20 feet under the surface of the water, this is not something that inanimate objects are capable of doing on their own: Either they are more buoyant than water, in which case they float, or they are less buoyant, in which case they sink.

So, how could a six-foot-long chunk of airplane remain suspended beneath the ocean surface for a long period of time? At this point, there aren’t any simple, common-sense answers; the range of possible explanations at this point runs from as-yet-unidentified natural processes to purposeful intervention by conspirators.

There’s certainly a logical explanation for all of this, and we’ll find it eventually — perhaps we’ll even learn a thing or two about barnacle ecology in the process! In the meanwhile, the sleuths of the internet are sure to come up with all sorts of outlandish origin stories for the untagged flaperon. And the fate of flight MH370 remains as mysterious as ever. - The Case of the MH370 Wing Segment Keeps Getting Weirder


Shark attacks board...surfer uninjured

California State Parks is warning people to stay out of the water in Morro Bay following a shark attack.

State Parks official Lisa Remington said the attack happened just after 10:00 a.m. at the north end of Morro Strand. She said a shark bit a surfer's board, but the woman was able to swim back to shore uninjured.

Remington said an official with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services was nearby on the beach when the attack happened. He observed the bite mark on the surfboard and estimated the shark was a 6-foot-long sub-adult white.

He said he believed it was an investigative bite because juvenile sharks are still learning what to hunt for. If their bite doesn't lead them to food, they usually won't continue to attack.

Remington said the surfer quickly swam back to shore. State Parks called other surfers in the area out of the water.

State Parks is posting warning signs informing beach-goers about the attack. Those warnings will remain in effect for 72 hours.

Remington said State Parks can't close the beach, but they are recommending people stay out of the water.


Mother Lived With Daughter's Dead Body for Months After Killing Her

A woman in Upstate New York was charged on Saturday with her infant child’s murder, the Associated Press reports. Prosecutors said the woman, Christina Colantonio, lived with her dead daughter’s body for three months.

Police opened an investigation on Thursday after receiving a 911 call from someone who’d visited Colantonio’s Batavia, New York, apartment and found the baby’s body.

According to the AP, police said investigators believe the girl was killed about “shortly after birth,” about three months ago, and that they “have enough evidence to come to a conclusion it was intentionally caused.”

Police said Colantonio has two other children. - Mother Lived With Daughter's Dead Body for Months After Killing Her

Transform Your Pooch Into a Snarling Werewolf

A Russian company has come up with a new muzzle design that transforms any pooch into a snarling beast to give would-be attackers serious second thoughts.

The mask, which is made of non-toxic plastic, features a set of bloodied teeth and gums set in a fearsome expression that sends a shiver down the spine.

It fits around the dog's head and is attached by two quick-release nylon straps.

The design allows for the dog to slightly open its mouth so it can still pant while looking like it's about to rip somebody's head off.

If you do want to look like you're walking a rabid hellhound, the muzzles cost around $30 and are available from website Zveryatam - although your Russian will have to be pretty good to understand it.

But one commenter raise a good point - that people will believe your dog really is an evil creature of the night and report you to the authorities.

An Early Example of Reality Shift?

A strange tale, provided during an inquest, was published in the London Times on Dec. 11, 1873:

A singular circumstance came to light in the Bristol Police Court, on Tuesday. Mr. Thomas B. Cumpston, and his wife, Mrs. Ann Martha Cumpston, of Virginia Road, Leeds, were brought up for being disorderly at the Victoria Hotel and with letting off fire-arms. It was stated in evidence by the landlady of the hotel, Mrs. Tongue, that the defendants took an apartment at the hotel, on Monday evening, and retired to rest about twelve o'clock. About four o'clock in the morning she was awoke by loud screams and shouts in their bed room, succeeded by a report of fire-arms. She went down and found that they had both leapt from their bed room into the yard below—a depth of upwards of twelve feet—and then made their way to the railway station opposite.

Mr. T. Harker, the night superintendent on the Bristol and Exeter Railway, said the parties rushed into his office, partly dressed, crying out "Murder," and they were in a terrible state of excitement. They told him they had escaped from a den of rogues and thieves, and they had to defend themselves. They were under the impression that someone was following them, and they made him search the waiting room to see there was no one there. Upon his sending for a policeman, Mr. Cumpston was searched, and a revolver and three knives were found upon him.

When asked by the magistrate what he had to say in explanation of the matter, Mr. Cumpston, who had an impediment in his speech, said he and his wife had been staying at Clifton; but, intending to proceed to Weston-super-Mare that morning, they came down and engaged a room at the Victoria Hotel, being near the railway station. They were alarmed at about four o'clock in the morning by terrible noises which they could not explain, and which frightened them very much. The bed seemed to open, and did all sorts of strange things. The floor, too, opened, and they heard voices. They were so terrified that they opened their bed-room window and leapt out.

Mrs. Cumpston, also, gave her version of the affair. She said they heard terrible noises at about four o'clock in the morning. The floor seemed to be giving way. It certainly opened, and her husband fell down some distance, and she tried to get him up. What they said was repeated every time they spoke. Being very much frightened she asked her husband to fire off his pistol, which he did, into the ceiling. The noises continuing, they got out of the window, but she did not know how. When they got outside she asked her husband to fire off his pistol again. They then ran up to the railway station. In reply to the Bench, the lady said she did not hear the noises so plainly as her husband. Ultimately, a Mr. Butt, who had been telegraphed for from Gloucester, attended the Court, and in reply to the Bench said the parties occupied a very good position in Leeds. He offered to take proper charge of them if they were handed over to him, which was ultimately done, the defendants being discharged from custody. No explanation can be given of this strange affair, and the belief is that it was an hallucination on the part of the husband.

If what the Cumpstons said was true, then the strange activity inspired a quick and desperate response. It can be said that it is similar to modern descriptions of the opening of a supposed 'portal' to another dimension. A more recent hypothesis may be 'reality shifts.' A reality shift is described as the sudden manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting. Shifts in reality have long been relied upon by those who practice magic, work as shamanic or energy healers, or believe in the transformative powers of prayer. A interesting reference to this phenomenon can be found at Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

The only other reference that I could find to this event was reported by the Bristol Daily Post:

On December 8th Mr. and Mrs. Thomas B Cumpston arrived in Brstol for a short holiday. They stayed at the Victoria hotel and were soon to encounter something so unbelievable that it both shocked and confused them so much that it caused them to be arrested for disorderly conduct from the local railway station soon after the event.

The couple told in court of how early in the evening they had heard strange, loud sounds in or near their room. The complained to the landlady, who also heard the noises but thought nothing of them. After the noises ceased they retired to bed for the night but were awoken at approx. 3.00am by the same loud noises. This time they were accompanied by the incredible sensation that the floor was giving way beneath them!. The couple shouted out for help and could not help but notice how strange their shouts sounded, echoing weirdly and being repeated by unseen presences. Mr. Cumpston then told of how the floor suddenly opened up and how it felt as if he were being dragged into it. Mrs. Cumpston managed to pull him out and the two of them made a hasty escape out a nearby window.

They were panicked beyond belief and were under the confused impression that criminals had somehow attempted to kidnap them. They fled to the nearby railway station where they were soon arrested by local police for disorderly conduct.

The landlady testified in police court that she had indeed heard the unusual noises, but she had no significan recollection of them. The police had checked out the Cumpston's room and found nothing out of the ordinary. The court concluded that the Cumpston's had suffered a "collective hallucination" and let them go.

To this day there is no plausible explanation for what actually happened to the Cumpstons.

Those people familiar with author William Hope Hodgson's detective of the occult 'Carnaki, the Ghost Finder' would likely recognized some parallel with 'The Whistling Room' summary. The literary character Thomas Carnacki, the famous investigator of "real" ghost stories, tells the results of his peculiar and weird examinations. The summary has also been reprinted in numerous anthologies, including collections introduced by Alfred Hitchcock.

Hodgson's work was inspirational to many science fiction and fantasy writers, including H.P. Lovecraft, Olaf Stapledon and Dennis Wheatley. Much of Hodgson's works are being reprinted, since copyright protection has expired on most of his early writings.

Haunted by a Fire Spook

A case of spontaneous fires in a home in the town of Woodstock, New Brunswick is the subject of the following article published in the Bangor, Maine Daily Whig on August 10, 1887:

Woodstock, N.B., is greatly excited, says a "Boston Herald" dispatch, over the strange and inexplicable scenes which have been enacted in a little, two-story frame house on Victoria street, occupied by Reginald C. Hoyt, a picture frame dealer, who does business on Main street, a few doors above the Wilbur House. His family, consisting of his wife, five children and two nieces, are in a state of mental fear, dread, and anxiety, and will probably vacate the house at once. Between eleven o'clock, Friday morning, and noon, Saturday, no less than forty fires broke out in various parts of the house, and bedding, furniture, window shades, clothing, and various household articles were partially destroyed. Only untiring vigilance has prevented the house and its contents from burning to the ground, and this would also have caused the destruction of other wooden buildings in the vicinity.

These fires can be traced to no human agency, and even the scientists are staggered. Without premonition and with no lamps lighted or stoves in use, various articles would burst out in flames. Now it would be a curtain, high up and out of reach; then a bedquilt in another room would commence to smoke and smoulder, and as if to still further nonplus the theorists, a carpet covered lounge was found to be all afire underneath, among the jute stretched above the springs.

A basket of clothes in the shed burst into flames, and the basket itself was partially consumed. A child's dress hanging on a hook, a feather bed, a straw mattress, no two articles in the same room were ignited and would have been consumed but for water copiously poured on them.

News spread quickly that Hoyt's house was haunted, and great crowds flocked there. One of the visitors was a leading physician and druggist, whose only theory was that of electrical or gaseous combustion. But the fact that the fire burst forth in rooms, the windows of which were wide open, seems to refute this supposition. Mr. James Walls, editor of the Carleton "Sentinel," the leading newspaper in town, went to examine into the strange affair, and while standing in the parlor talking with Mrs. Hoyt, was astonished to see a white cotton window curtain burst into flames at a point near the ceiling, and when no one was present. He rushed to the spot, climbed a chair, and with his hands, which were somewhat burned, extinguished the fire, only to see it break out anew at a point far removed from the original blaze. He came away puzzled and completely nonplussed.

Mr. William S. Jones, of Boston, in company with Mr. Jarvis, of the Halifax Banking Company, called at the fire haunted house this morning, and, while seated in the front room talking with Mrs. Hoyt and Mr. George Connell, the lawyer, a child's shriek was heard in the adjoining room, and the party rushed in to find a basket of clothes in a blaze. Like all the others, they came away mystified.

The house presents a strange appearance. In every room, partially burned garments, sheets, and articles of furniture were lying around drenched with water, and walls and ceilings blackened and smoked. The children were huddled about their mother, everyone dreading a visit of the fire spook and anxiously glancing about.

No evidence of human agency was discovered in any of these fires. On the contrary, it was discovered that on one occasion fire had broken out when no one was in the house. Mr. Hoyt returned from a neighbor's, where he had taken his family, to find a bed on fire.

Mr. Hoyt is a sober, industrious man and bears a good reputation. His property is not insured. The house is insured, but is not owned by Mr. Hoyt.

So what does one make of these supposed incidents? This phenomenon is not unheard of...it continues in modern times. Is it cause by an malevolent entity...or possibly man-made through pyrokinesis?

Here are a few other related incidents:

UFO Abductee Honored With Monument

SHEFFIELD, Mass. (NEWS10) – The man behind the discovery of an UFO encounter is being honored with a monument.

The commemorative monument is dedicated to the official induction of our nation’s first off-world UFO incident.

The monument was installed and funded by a coalition of witnesses present on that fateful night in 1969.

Thomas Reed was one of those witnesses. Reed says he was his family’s station wagon adjacent to the Old Sheffield Covered Bridge in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

Reed says after his mom drove over the bridge, they started seeing lights. The car came to a stop.

The sound of frogs and crickets that had filled the night air just moments before, dissipated.

Lights filled the station wagon, silence, and then a loud bang reverberated through the night air.

“You could see the lights flickering through the trees,” says Reed. “We were all just no longer in the vehicle anymore.”

When Reed regained consciousness, he says his family was in a spacious industrial building.

Something grabbed him from his left, guided him through a door and into a room on his right.

“I ran at that point,” said Reed. “I came into a large intersecting hallway.”

“I was covered with an apparatus,” he said. “I was put back into this room. I could hear my mother’s voice, my grandmother; at least I believe it was them.”

Reed explained that he heard women’s voices calling out to him. The next thing he knew, he was back in his family’s car.

The same night of the encounter, others reported similar experiences to WSPS Radio.

Jesse Stewart, an employee of WSPS Radio, reported hearing from an 81-year-old woman who had been driving out to Stockbridge that evening.

Following a recent call with Reed, Steward says she followed-up again.

“It puts a chill down your back,” Reed explains. “It gives you a little bit of an upset stomach, because it was a strange night for us.” - Witness: UFO abductee honored with monument

Whatever happened to the Marshall County cop who hit a UFO?

At 1:40 a.m. 36 years ago, Marshall County Sheriff's Deputy Val Johnson was on night patrol along a rural section of State Highway 220 near Warren, Minn., when he drove into a ball of white light.

"I noticed a very bright, brilliant light, 8 to 12 inches in diameter, 3 to 4 feet off the ground," Johnson said in a taped police interview. "The edges were very defined."

Johnson drove toward the light, and woke up in the ditch a half-hour later with burns around his eyes. The windshield and one headlight of his 1977 Ford LTD were smashed. Both radio antenna were bent sharply back. The watch on his wrist and the clock on the dash both ticked 14 minutes slow.

The incident turned Johnson into a local legend and national media sensation. And years later, people are still talking about it.

Johnson's squad car is preserved in the Marshall County Museum with a plaque that says: "U.F.O. Car." People still come from miles around to see it. It's an annual display at the Marshall County Fair.

Sometimes former Marshall County Sheriff Dennis Brekke gives talks at the museum about the car and the night his deputy drove it into a ball of light. Police investigated and never drew any conclusions. Read more at Whatever happened to the Marshall County cop who hit a UFO?


Manta Ray / Triangular Shaped UFO

Nanticoke, PA - On July 5th 2007 my nephew came to my room and asked me to go outside and look at something. I asked him what, but he responded he's not sure, need to look for myself. This was daylight around 8 P.M.

I went into the backyard with him and he pointed in the sky. I saw a profile/underside of a large black triangle motionless and hovering beyond the roofs of the houses. The shape was similar to a manta ray except the outer shape was a near to perfect triangle with straight lines. The under side had 3 red lights towards each corner, this appeared to be propulsion. I could see it pulsated more to a white intensity color as it moved later on. From my view the object was half the length of a standard house looking over the roof line, hard to determine it's exact distance or size. Had to either be very large and real far away, or just large and closer. I'll estimate it at maybe 100 feet wide being the closer/smaller size because I could see some details in the lights/propulsion. There was no observable windows or doors anywhere on the craft, looked totally smooth throughout.

Trying to guesstimate that location it's an old all concrete mining community with coal strip mining and silt banks near it. It's called Concrete City. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.1893841,-75.9760247,163m/data=!3m1!1e3
No, that's not a crop circle in the center, long ago was an old concrete pool and heard stories a kid died in it and was filled.

I affixed my hand to the side of the porch and used my thumb to determine if I saw any movement whatsoever, the object did not move with the wind like a balloon or a kite would do. We stared at it a good while and it started getting dark. I was looking at the clear night sky and the moon when at the south-east side of the moon I noticed a red light appear. As I watched this light it got larger, I told my nephew and we watched it come all the way into earth's atmosphere and join up with the first triangle. It turned out to be another triangle the same. It took this triangle less than a minute from deep space to our location. At this point I realized that I was truly seeing a UFO..and in that sense I mean something not from earth. When triangle two got to triangle one, triangle one moved all erratic, then triangle two did something similar. Triangle one then darted off way into the distance, up down and all different directions and appeared to even come back to the same position as was. The speed and maneuvers were incredible. Triangle two did some erratic movements then shot off back into space, following the same pattern it came from. Again it took less than a minute and was totally out of sight on a very clear night sky. Triangle one then started to do what appeared to be a search pattern. Slow hovering and can see the triangle tilting in different directions as it moved around. After around two minutes of this triangle one darted off into space the same path triangle two took. Also out of sight less than a minute.

I have no video or images of this event. I did not want to leave and miss anything plus most likely nothing was charged. Always assumed it was possible other life exists than our own...we exist after all. I believe my nephew and I witnessed the proof that it's not only possible but a reality. - MUFON CMS


NASA debunks 'Blood Moon Prophecy' asteroid predictions

The space agency remains adament that there are no apocalyptic asteroids due to hit us next month.

The Internet has been awash over the last week or so with claims that a large asteroid is heading towards us and that it will strike Puerto Rico sometime between September 15th and 28th.

Chief among those responsible for the rumor is self-proclaimed prophet Efrain Rodriguez whose predictions are based on the so-called 'Blood Moon Prophecy' - a series of four blood moons that have been occurring over the last 18 months with the last one due on September 28th.

NASA's Near-Earth Object Office however has emphatically denied that anything is going to happen.

"If there were any object large enough to do that type of destruction in September, we would have seen something of it by now," said manager Paul Chodas. "In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century."

The September doomsday claim is just the latest in a long line of "end of the world" predictions that have arisen over the last few years with December 21st 2012 being the most infamous.

As it stands there is practically no chance that next month's event will be any different. - Asteroid 'headed to destroy Earth' almost certainly isn’t real, NASA says

Intriguing Image of 'Irish Sea Monster' Surfaces

There may have been something legitimate about the supposed sighting of this creature. The naturalist Philip Henry Gosse stated that there may still exist some specimens of a nearly extinct race of sea monster. For those who believe that the Loch Ness Monster is a previously extinct underwater species, then there may be some hope:

A picture of County Clare's equivalent to the Loch Ness monster has surfaced in a London image archive.

An account of the sea monster's appearance was featured in a newspaper article in the Victorian publication, The Day's Doings on 21 October 1871.

The paper reported that there had been "some excitement" in Kilkee at the appearance of the "extraordinary marine visitor".

It appeared before a "party of strangers, composed of several ladies and some gentlemen", one of whom was a well-known clergyman in the "north of Ireland", when they went down to "Diamond Rocks".

They were watching the heavy ground swell from the Atlantic when their "attention was arrested by the appearance of an extraordinary monster who rose from the surface of the water" about 70 yards from where they were standing.

The paper quotes that it had "an enormous head, shaped somewhat like a horse, while behind the head and the neck was a huge mane of seaweed-looking hair which rose and fell with the motion of the water".

"It's eyes were large and glaring, and, by the appearance of the water behind, a vast body seemed to be beneath the waves," the article stated.

The party were unable to judge its length but they all agreed it was the "most gigantic creature they had ever seen".

The sea monster remained for "some minutes" before it "vanished in the same mysterious way that it had come".

In a bid to understand more about this "extraordinary animal", the paper quotes the "renowned living naturalist" Philip Henry Gosse.

Gosse's own opinion, "formed after a mature deliberation" of the evidence, was that there "were existing still some specimens of a nearly extinct race of sea monster".

He concluded that the sea monster seen in Kilkee possessed "close affinities" with the fossil of an extinct group of marine reptiles known as Enaliosauria.

The Day's Doings ends the article by concluding that it believed it was the "first time that one of these strange sea monsters has been seen on the coasts of the British Isles, and much excitement has been caused by its appearance in this particular neighbourhood".

The article was found in the Mary Evans picture library, which she co-founded with her husband Hilary.

He was a pictorial archivist and keen collector of UFOs and other paranormal phenomena, including sea monsters. -Ireland’s Loch Ness monster surfaces from the depths after 144 years
