(Jerry) Clark sent me an interesting email that directed me to an entry in his
massive UFO Encyclopedia, which, by the way, is a required investment
for anyone who wants to seriously study UFOs. He suggested that an
abduction/contactee case from 1951 or 52, was an interesting match to one I had
just reported. According to the story, as told to some rather obscure sources,
the witness, whose name was not mentioned, walked into a newspaper office in December
1957, and told his tale of alien contact.
said that while serving in the US Army in Austria, as he was walking home, a
helmeted entity, stepped from behind some bushes, and pointed some sort of
weapon at him that paralyzed him. He was taken to some kind of craft. He told
the reporter, the creature put a black mask over his face, and that he was
“pulled along… after him.”
entered the craft through an opening in the top. It was a round object that was
about 150 feet in diameter. They then took off, flew past the moon and on to a
planet that might have been Mars. They landed at a spaceport (my deduction)
where there were other, similar vehicles parked. The being with him floated out
and the witness said that he saw two other humans, but they didn’t acknowledge
him. The creature returned, they flew back to Earth, and he was taken from the
craft. The being pointed the weapon at him and he was no longer paralyzed. The
being returned to its craft and took off.
would be of no interest to me, if not for the description of the alien
creature. According to what Clark reported, “He [the creature] had no hair at
all… His head was sort of cylinder form. A very high forehead with big eyes.
You could see lots of little eyes in the two big eyes. It seemed to me it
looked like the eyes of a fly.”
are points here that make no real sense. Why would an alien creature abduct the
man, fly him to Mars (if it was really Mars?), and then return him? There is no
indication that the witness was questioned, examined, or provided with some
sort of message for humanity. There is no way to investigate or corroborate the
story because the name of the witness has been lost, if it was ever known. It
is interesting here, only because of the description of the alien eyes, which
fits with the description given by the couple who made a sighting in New Mexico
in 2017. And I mention it only for that reason.
I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that November 1957 was a time of
intense UFO activity and reporting. The news media was filled with tales of
UFOs. In many of those cases, the alien craft stalled car engines and dimmed
headlights. It wasn’t as if the witness appeared in a time when people weren’t
talking about flying saucers. Maybe all the talk inspired him to finally tell
his tale, or more likely, inspired him to invent it. And that is probably the
reason that the newspaper decided to run with it. The witness was talking about
seeing a flying saucer and riding in it.
someone pointed out that the Belt, Montana, and Malmstrom Air Force Base
sightings, were more than a half century old. To them, the idea that national
security was an issue was something that, in this case, was more than half a
century out of date. In all that time, wouldn’t the policy have been changed?
we see that Area 51 was exposed by UFO investigations surrounding Bob Lazar and
his claims of UFOs housed there. Had it not been for the investigation into
Lazar’s claims, whether real or imaginary, the existence of Area 51 might have
remained a secret. It was the probing of Lazar’s story that led to the exposure
of Area 51. It demonstrated that any tale of UFOs could compromise a real
element of national security. This reinforces the idea that national security
is one of the driving forces that is the reason that we still find UFO
information suppressed and the government’s continual denial that there is
anything to reports of UFOs.
big news is that a Harvard scientist, Dr. Abraham (Avi) Loeb, (seen here) who is the chair
of the Department of Astronomy, has suggested that we were visited in 2017.
Well, visited isn’t quite the right word but that an alien artifact had entered
the Solar System.
my communications with him, I asked a number of questions, such as where it
might have originated. According to the data, it came from the direction of
Vega, which is about 25 light years from Earth.
September 6, 2017, the artifact crossed into the orbital plane of the solar
system, and on September 9, it made its closest approach to the sun. On October
7, it passed Earth, moving in the direction of Pegasus.
was the first interstellar object that was detected inside the Solar System. It
was not bound to the sun’s gravity, and apparently was just passing through.
According to the scientists, when it passed Venus it was traveling around
60,000 mph, which isn’t even close to the speed of light. Unless it had slowed
down as it approached the Solar System (which suggests intelligent control),
then it had taken a really long time to get here from Vega (if that is the
point of origin) … and I’m not even going to try the math. I’ll just say we’re
talking many, many millennia.
scientists were able to study the object, which was about three hundred feet in
length, had a somewhat cigar shape and was rotating slowly.
was named, “Oumuamua,” which means scout in
It was, at first believed to be a
comet, but it exhibited none of the characteristics of a comet. That suggested
to Dr. Loeb that it was something completely different.
Nearly all the scientists agree that
the object did not originate in the Solar System, which makes it the first
alien object to be observed inside the Solar System. While Dr. Loeb believes
that it is an artificial object, many scientists disagree.
Astronomy article published in July 2019, concluded, “We find no compelling
evidence to favor an alien explanation for Oumuamua.”
I, on the other
hand, am rooting for Dr. Loeb’s explanation but must note that while the object
is certainly alien, it is not necessarily artificial. I’ll have more after my
interview with Dr. Loeb coming up in the next couple of weeks.
