Sneak Peek: A Collection of Unidentified Flying Object Phenomena by Clinton Laird

This is a collection of reports, stories, evidence and theories about UFOs that will make even the most skeptical stop to reflect. Whether you’re an enthusiast, skeptic, educator or scientist this book brings together information about UFO phenomena in a way that gives you all the most important research in a single place for your review.

We were able to obtain the first few chapters of this book from the author, Clinton Laird. This is amazingly interesting and we wanted to share it with you!


This book tells you what the US Government failed to report about UFOs. It explains where the UFOs come from, what they are doing here, and exposes the United States antigravity (UFO) vehicles. The book gives the history of UFOs along with biblical and modern UFO reports. It gives the locations of the best places to view UFOs, and how the antigravity propulsion system of a UFO works. The author is neither for nor against the belief in UFOs, and merely lays out the details of UFO incidences so that the reader can decide in the validity of the phenomena.

Early History of UFOs

Early Egyptian and African Myths

Most of our information regarding early Egyptian creation myths comes from a collection of ancient Egyptian religious texts from the time of the Old Kingdom (2780 – 2250 B.C.E) known as the “Pyramid Texts”.  They are the oldest known religious texts in the world.  Written in the old-style Egyptian, the Pyramid Texts were carved on the walls and sarcophagi of the pyramids at Saqqara during the 5th and 6th Dynasties.

Other important information regarding early Egypt comes from The Turin Papyrus, also called Turin Papyrus of Kings or the Turin Canon.  These are hieratic manuscripts of the 19th dynasty (1292–1190 B.C.E.) which lists all the Pharaohs who ruled over Ancient Egypt  from earliest times to the reign of Ramses II (1279–13 B.C.E.).  Not only does this list include all of the ‘official’ historic Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, but it also includes the deities or “Gods” who came from above and reigned over the lands of Egypt before the first mortal Pharaoh of Egypt, whose lineage spread over 13,000 years.

The Egyptian High Priest, Manetho (approximately 285–246 B.C.E), who had access to unlimited ancient texts from the Library of Alexandria, wrote for the Pharaoh the history of Ancient Egypt in 30 volumes.  Manetho makes reference to the divine beings that ruled during Pre-Pharaonic Egypt.

According to Egyptian mythology, Akhenaten, a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty, ruled for 17 years and was the father of Tutankhamun.  He was said to have descended from the gods who arrived on Earth at the time of Zep Tepi from the neighboring star, Sirius, and established the original Syrian-Egyptian civilization. According to the Pyramid Texts, “Zep Tepi” was a time of emergence from the earthly chaos, and the gods took control and ruled the earth.  Many researchers believe that the ancient Egyptian civilization originated in the year 36.900 B.C.E, when gods came from the heavens, and ruled over the land of the Pharaohs.

Ancient Stele make reference to the Egyptian god Horus, suggesting that he was a physical ruler of the Egypt thousands of years ago.  Another Egyptian god, Thoth, is said to have reigned over the lands of Egypt from 8670 to 7100 B.C.E.

Mainstream scholars consider these ancient texts as pure myth, and the reason why most details of the texts have been overlooked and omitted from the history books.  However, Is there any physical evidence that Aliens, considered as gods from the star Sirius (the “Dog Star” in the constellation Canis Major), ruled Egypt and had offspring with humans?

There is one physical trait that appears in all the members of the Egyptian royals during the Armana epoch (latter half of the Eighteenth Dynasty 1550 BCE to 1292 BCE.).   This royalty includes:  King Tut (Tutankhamun); his father King Atkenaton; his mother Queen Nefertiti and their six female children; Rameses II and his (suspected) first son Amun-her-Khepeshef; and Tutankhamun’s great-great-great-grandfather, Thutmosis III.  All of these people had evidence of elongated skulls.  Whether or not this was a genetic trait, or one forced on the royal members at birth is unknown.  While the cranium appears extended at the rear, they do not show any evidence of artificial deformation, as with other ancient cultures from China, and Meso- and South America, where it was considered a look of beauty.  Perhaps it is relevant that in the 1st Century, Egyptian priest-scribes, then keepers of the world’s oldest known records, claimed that the earliest rulers of Egypt were non-humans.

In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was regarded as the most important star in the sky. In fact, it was astronomically the foundation of the Egyptians’ entire religious system. It was revered as Sothis and was associated with Isis, the mother goddess of Egyptian mythology. Isis is the female aspect of the trinity formed by herself, Osiris and their son Horus.

Ancient Egyptians held Sirius in such a high regard that most of their deities were associated, in some way or another, with the star.  Anubis, the dog-headed god of death, had an obvious connection with Sirius, the Dog Star.  Toth-Hermes, the god who was the great teacher of humanity, was also connected with Sirius.

The Egyptian calendar system was based on the heliacal rising of Sirius that occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile during summer. The star’s celestial movement was also observed and revered by ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians and countless other civilizations, and notably, the Dogon tribe of West Africa, who are discussed later in this chapter.

The star was therefore considered sacred, and its apparition in the sky was accompanied with feasts and celebrations. The Dog Star heralded the coming of the hot and dry days of July and August, hence the popular term “the dog days of summer”.

Several occult researchers have claimed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, especially Sirius. The light from these stars was said to be used in ancient Egyptian ceremonies.

Paracas Skulls

Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province on the south coast of Peru.  It is here were Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928 – a massive and elaborate graveyard containing Incan tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world.  These have come to be known as the ‘ Paracas skulls ’.  In total, Tello found more than 300 of these elongated skulls, which are believed to be over 3,000 years old.

DNA samples were taken from three of the elongated skulls for DNA testing.  The samples consisted of hair and bone powder, which was extracted by drilling deeply into the foramen magnum. This process was used to reduce the risk of contamination. In addition, full protective clothing was worn. The samples were then sent to three separate labs for testing – one in Canada, and two in the United States. The geneticists were only told that the samples came from an ancient mummy, so as not to create any preconceived ideas.

From the samples, only the mitochondrial DNA (DNA from the mother’s side) could be extracted.  Out of four hair samples, one of them couldn’t be sequenced. The remaining three hair samples all showed a Haplogroup H2A, a genetic population group which is found most frequently in Eastern Europe around the Caspian Sea, and at a lower frequency in Western Europe. The bone sample from the most elongated skull resulted in Haplogroup T2B, a group who originated in Mesopotamia, now Syria, and known as the original Syrian-Egyptian civilization.  The results are also consistent with the fact that many of the Paracas skulls still contain traces of red hair, a color that is not natively found in South America, but originates in the Middle East and Europe.

Permission was obtained from the Peruvian government to do a second round of genetic testing on some of the skulls, working together with archaeologist, Ruben Soto.  A total of 18 skulls, approximately 2,000 to 3,000 years old were sent. The DNA results from 12 of these came back from two separate labs, at Canada’s Lakehead University and at UCLA in the U.S.

The DNA from four of the elongated skulls is from Haplogroup B, Native American ancestry,  but the other eight were mostly from Haplogroup H, H1A, H2 and U2E.  Mitochondrial Haplogroup H is predominantly found in Europe.  Subclade H1 are found on the Iberian Peninsula and among the Tuareg Berbers of Libya.  U2E  is considered a European-specific Subclade of U2, which is an old lineage that emerged from the Caucasus Mountains region more than 50,000 years ago.

The mitochondrial DNA also, showed mutations that were unknown to any man, primate or animal found on planet Earth. The mutations present in the samples of the Paracas skulls suggest that researchers were dealing with a completely new ‘human-like being,’ very different from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals or Denisovans.  The DNA testing programs can only compare sample DNA with those that are known, and those are held in a huge database culled from the Human Genome Project (2003),  residing at Genentech in the U.S.

The DNA results show that Europe and the Middle East migrated to the Americas long before it is conventionally believed.  The results also suggest that there might be a linkage with the elongated skulls of the ancient Egyptian royal family who are claimed to have been non-human, or a hybrid of alien/human breeding.

In the  Bible,  Genesis 6:1–4  talks about the Nephilim, who, are the offspring of the Fallen Angels  and the women of earth, resulting in a hybrid entity, said to be based in the area of the Levant, the same place that the Paracas DNA traces to.

Dogon mythology

Other physical evidence that Aliens had arrived on Earth from Sirius can be found in Dogon creation mythology.   Deeply-rooted traditions of the Dogon people of western Africa speak of the Nommos who visited from a companion star to Sirius.  The Nommos are known as advanced beings that have also appeared in numerous related myths found in Sumerian and other Mesopotamian cultures.

Dogon mythology tells that the Nommos, a race of amphibious aliens, visited them on a very large star ship on several occasions.  They are said to have “descended from the sky in a vessel accompanied by fire and thunder,” and imparted profound knowledge to humans.  They tell us the Nommos shared knowledge of Sirius with them and left behind several artifacts. They tell of a companion star in the Sirius star system which has a 50 year elliptical orbit, and is not visible to the naked eye.  Modern astronomers did not know the companion star even existed until 1862.

One artifact depicting Sirius carbon dates to 400 years ago, a little over 230 years before astronomers suspected the existence of the companion white dwarf Known as Sirius B.  The Dogon say this this star is composed of the heaviest metal in the Universe. The Dogon tribe further describes the existence of a third star in this binary star system, which has not yet been discovered by modern astronomers, and would be referred to as Sirius C.   The Dogon say that this third star in the system has an orbiting planet that is the home of the Nommos. Every 50 years, the Dogon people celebrate the cycle of Sirius A and B.  These ancient tribes, without the use of telescopes, have crafted artifacts that describe the Sirius star system more than 200 years before modern astronomers discovered Sirius B.   Amazingly, the Dogon people also knew of Saturn’s rings, and the many moons of Jupiter.

Sirius, also known as the Dog Star, is found in the constellation α Canis Majoris (Alpha Canis Majoris), or Canicula.  It is the single brightest star in the night sky, having an apparent magnitude of -1.44.  In contrast, our Sun star has an apparent magnitude of -26.7.   It is a binary star system composed of  Sirius A and Sirius B, at a distance of 8.60 light years from Earth.  Sirius is not the brightest star because it is more luminous than other visible stars, but because it is located so close to the solar system. It is the fifth closest star system to Earth and contains two of the eight nearest stars to Earth.  Mainstream science does not consider the planets orbiting the Sirius star system to be a prime candidate for life.

Carl Sagan, the populist astronomer, concluded that the Dogon could not have acquired their knowledge without contact with an advanced technological civilization. He suggests that that civilization was terrestrial rather than extraterrestrial, however, and that this part of Western Africa has had many visitors from technological societies who passed through on the trade routes.

Although it is unclear, it cannot be dismissed that alien life from the vicinity of Sirius may have had contact with human life.    As unreal as it sounds, we cannot dispute that ancient Egyptian and Dogon mythology firmly testify that god-like beings have been involved with humans here on Earth.

Aliens and Religion

The Bible was written over 2,000 years ago with the King James Version translation into English by the Church of England in 1011 CE.  It is a collection of sacred scripture of both Judaism and Christianity. Christian Bibles include the books of the Hebrew Bible, but arranged in a different order: Jewish Scripture ends with the people of Israel restored to Jerusalem and the temple and the Christian arrangement ends with the book of the prophet Malachi. The Jewish Tanakh divides the Hebrew Bible into 24 books, while the same texts are usually arranged as 39 books in Christian Old Testaments. Complete Christian Bibles range from the 66 books of the Protestant Bible to the 81 books in the Ethiopian Orthodox Bible.

The Qur’an (Koran) is the religious text of Islam. All three religions worship the same God, Lord of the universe.  The Qur’an assumes familiarity with major narratives recounted in Jewish and Christian scriptures, summarizing some, dwelling at length on others, and, in some cases, presenting alternative accounts and interpretations of events. Muslims believe that the Qur’an was repeatedly revealed from Allah to Muhammad verbally through the angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) over a period of approximately twenty-three years, beginning in 610 CE, when he was forty, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death. A lot has happened since the writing of the Qur’an or Bible. We now have automobiles; airplanes, televisions, radios, electricity, light bulbs and we can communicate with cell phones.  A person trying to describe these items over 1,000 years ago in the Qur’an or Bible would explain them in terms of things of their known world and experience.

“Heaven” in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible is mentioned 730 times.  It is translated from Hebrew and Greek words that mean “the sky”, or directly related to the sky. This is a different meaning than the Heaven that we often think of as an otherworldly realm in which people who have died continue to exist in an afterlife.

Clouds don’t stop and hover for days, weeks, and months as in the Bible. To a person trying to describe, in Bible times, what we consider today a flying machine would use terms that they are familiar with like flying in a thick cloud. Thick clouds, swift clouds, bright clouds, dark clouds, white clouds, low clouds, great clouds, and fiery clouds are all referenced in the Bible, and quite possibly, all refer to a flying vehicle. The word pillar is translated from “ammuwd” meaning a column or base of column in other words a platform. Therefore, pillar of a cloud would mean a vehicle platform, or sky vehicle. The Hebrew word for “chariot” is “rekeb” of which one of the meanings is millstone, a thick disc-shaped object used in grinding grain. Platforms, vessels, whirling chariots of fire, sky thrones, fiery horses, cherubim, thick darkness, great fire, whirlwinds, fiery wheels, pavilions, dark waters, storms, sky dwellings, rolls, and sanctuaries refer to vehicles in the sky.

There are many reports of UFO in the Bible such as the Star of Bethlehem that guided the Wise men.  Exodus tells the story of Moses leading the Jews from Egypt. God appears to Moses as a “burning bush” (Exodus 3).  Later, during the exodus, Moses and the Jews are led by a “pillar of cloud” by day and a “pillar of fire” by night And while the Bible interprets this as God speaking to Moses leading the Jews, some theorists feel that the Biblical descriptions of fire and clouds are similar to some modern UFO descriptions. The pillars of clouds and fire shows up in subsequent books of the Old Testament as well, including in Exodus 40, Numbers 14:14, Deuteronomy 1:33, and Nehemiah 9:12 and 9:19

Other descriptions in the Book of Exodus tell of Moses being carried to a mountain in a cloud (24:18), and of God descending in a cloud (34:5), which some interpret as the appearance of an Alien with a UFO.  Many other references to clouds behaving in oddly specific manners (such as guiding people, carrying people, arising from the sea, bringing messengers from God, and more) also exist throughout the Old Testament that are very different from how one might observe the patterns of clouds today.

Exodus 13:21 states, “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night.”  In all cases, the literal translation from Hebrew for the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire remains the same.  The word for pillar is ammuwd “aw-mood” meaning a solid, cylindrical object.  The word for cloud is anan, “aw-nawn”, and it means cloud.  It has been documented that cigar-shaped UFOs often surround themselves with a cloud.  The word for fire is “‘esh”, or “aysh”, which means flaming, or in this case, a glowing object. This is how it would have been reported today: “The Cigar-Shaped UFO Was a Dark Cloud by Day and a Glowing Object by Night.”

Exodus 13:22 says, “He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.”

Exodus 14:19, “And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them.

What is significant about this passage of the Old Testament is that it indicates that the “Angel of God” was operating this mysterious object.  This particular angel was given a formal name In the Hebrew text, He was called Malak, (“mal-awk”). This means a messenger specifically sent by God, who was dispatched to protect the Israelites.

Exodus 14:24  “And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians.”

Exodus 33:9  “And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.”

Exodus 34:5  “And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord.”

Numbers 12:5  “And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam and they both came forth.”

Who was Moses?

The Bible and the Koran speak of Moses being born in Egypt, brought up in the pharaonic royal palace, and leading the Israelites in their flight to Canaan. In historical terms, when did Moses live, and who was the “Pharaoh of Oppression”?  These questions have bewildered scholars for centuries. An analysis of historical events will show that King Tut’s father Egyptian King Akhenaten and Biblical Moses could be the same person.

While little is known about Moses and the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten background knowledge of both men is helpful to our understanding. Moses is said to have been born about 1400 BCE which closely matches Akhenaten’s birth in 1427 BCE.  The Bible was written by man inspired by God. The orthodox evangelicals believe that every word in the Bible is God’s words, and that Moses was Akhenaten’s adoptive son (King Tut’s adoptive brother). Non-religious people would say that Moses never existed at all, and the whole story is a fictitious tale.

Modern scholars believe that the story of the Exodus has some historical core, but the Bible was never intended primarily as a historical document, and contains little that is accurate or reliable.  In the following article below, Mr. Ahmed Osman takes the middle view that the Bible tales were given to man through a dream, and like all dreams, might contain inaccurate details, while remaining true to the historical influences. This makes Moses the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten.  His Biblical father Amram was pharaoh Amenhotep III, Biblical mother Jochebed was the Egyptian Tiye, and Biblical brother Aaron the Egyptian Crown Prince Thutmosis. Akhenaten’s only brother, Thutmosis, was older and traditionally, heir to the throne. Moses had only one brother Aaron, who was older. The Bible says Moses was raised as a brother to the heir of the throne.  Prince Thutmosis served as a priest. The Bibles says that Moses brother Aaron was also a priest. Both Moses and Akhenaten were born in the same region with similar birth dates.

Being sympathetic to the plight of the slave workers, Crown Prince Thutmosis was expelled from the pharaoh’s court and disappeared.  Nothing further is known about him, but it is believed that he had been kidnapped and assassinated by the Amun priests.  His sarcophagus was never used. Most of what we know about Prince Thutmosis comes from the inscriptions on the limestone sarcophagus of his cat, Ta-miu (she-cat), now on display at the Cairo Museum.  Many scholars believe that the Egyptian Crown Prince Thutmosis was, in fact, the biblical Moses.

There is physical evidence that Moses’ brother Aaron is the same person as Akhenaten’s brother Thutmosis.  Upon Aaron’s death, his body was buried at Petra in Jordan, according to the Bible.  Some believe he was buried atop Aaron’s Mountain (Jabaal Harun) in Petra, but this is only a possible grave site, and is not accepted by many religious scholars.  In the early 1800s, two British explorers in Petra discovered an Egyptian staff (walking stick) was found at another possible grave site in a cave at Petra.  This grave was empty, but it is believed to have contained the body of a person in very high social standing.  The staff was purchased by a British collector, and later acquired by the Birmingham Museum where it is now on display in the Egyptian gallery.  The staff had the inscription, written in ancient Egyptian, “Thutmosis a person High in the Pharaohs Court” which could only be Akhenaten’s brother, Thutmosis. If this is the actual grave site of Moses’ brother Aaron, it would prove that Aaron and Thutmosis are one in the same.

The following article comes from “Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus” by Ahmed Osman, October 1, 2002:

“Akhenaten was born in Year 12 of his father Amenhotep III’s rule, 1394 BCE, in the summer royal palace in the border city of Zarw in northern Sinai.  Zarw, modern Kantara East, was the center of the land of Goshen where the Israelites dwelt, and in the same location where Moses was born. Contrary to the biblical account, Moses was born inside the royal palace. His mother Queen Tiye had an elder son, Thutmosis, who died a short time before Akhenaten’s birth. Thutmosis had been educated and trained at the royal residence in Memphis, before he mysteriously disappeared, believed to have been kidnapped and assassinated by the Amun priests. Fearing for his safety, his mother Tiye sent Akhenaten by water to the safekeeping of her father’s Israelite family outside the walls of Zarw, which was the origin of the baby-in-the-bulrushes story.

The reason for the priests’ hostility to the young prince was the fact that Tiye, his mother, was not the legitimate heiress to the throne. She couldn’t therefore be accepted as a consort for the state god Amun. If Tiye’s son acceded to the throne, this would be regarded as forming a new dynasty of non-Amunite kings over Egypt. During his early years, his mother kept Akhenaten away from both royal residences at Memphis and Thebes. He spent his childhood at the border city of Zarw, nursed by the wife of the queen’s younger brother General Aye. Later, Akhenaten was moved to Heliopolis, north of Cairo, to receive his education under the supervision of Anen the priest of Ra, who was the elder brother of Queen Tiye.

Young Akhenaten appeared at the capital city Thebes, for the first time, when he reached the age of sixteen. There he met with Nefertiti, his half sister daughter of Sitamun, for the first time and fell in love with her. Tiye, his mother, encouraged this relationship realizing that his marriage to Nefertiti, the heiress, is the only way he can gain the right to follow his father on the throne.

Following his marriage to Nefertiti, Amenhotep decided to make Akhenaten his co-regent, which upset the priests of Amun. The conflict between Amenhotep and the priests had started sixteen years earlier, as a result of his marriage to Tiye, daughter of Yuya and Tuya. On his accession to the throne as co-regent, Akhenaten took the name of Amenhotep IV. At Thebes, during the early years of his co-regency, Nefertiti was active in supporting her husband and became more prominent than Akhenaten in official occasions, as well as on all monuments.

However, the climate of hostility that surrounded Akhenaten at the time of his birth surfaced again after his appointment as co-regent. The Amun priesthood opposed this appointment, and openly challenged Amenhotep III’s decision.

When the Amun priests objected to his appointment, Akhenaten responded by building temples to his new God, Aten. He built three temples for Aten, one at the back end of the Carnac complex, the other at Luxor near the Nile bank, and the third at Memphis. Akhenaten snubbed the Amun priests by not inviting them to any of the festivities.  In the early part of his co-regency, and in his fourth year when he celebrated his sed festival jubilee, he banned all deities but his own God from the occasion. Twelve months later he made a further break with tradition by changing his name to Akhenaten in honor of his new deity. To the resentful Egyptian establishment Aten was seen as a challenger who would replace the powerful state god Amun and not come under his domination. In the tense climate that prevailed, Tiye arranged a compromise by persuading her son to leave Thebes and establish a new capital at Armana.

The situation calmed down, following Akhenaten’s departure, while Amenhotep ruled alone in Thebes. For building his new city at Amarna, Akhenaten chose a land that belonged to no god or goddess. The building started in his Year 4 and ended in Year 8.  He and his family moved from Thebes to Amarna in Year 6. Here Akhenaten built his new capital where he and his followers could be free to worship their God. Akhenaten conceived of a single controlling intelligence, above all beings including the gods. The king and queen were the major figures in the cult of Aten, whose festivals they celebrated with the local people with music, chanting, offering of fruits and flowers, and rituals in the open air.

Following the death of his father, Amenhotep III, he organized a great celebration at Amarna in his Year 12, for foreign princes bearing tribute because of his assumption of sole rule.. It was then that the king decided to abolish the worship of all gods in Egypt, except Aten. Akhenaten gave orders to his troops instructing them to close all the temples, confiscate its estates, and sack the priests, leaving only Aten’s temples throughout the country. Units were dispatched to excise the names of the ancient gods wherever they were found written or engraved, a course that can only have created mounting opposition to his already rejected authority. This persecution entailed the closing of the temples, confiscating property, and the dispatch of artisans who entered everywhere to hack out the names of the deities from inscriptions. The excommunication of Amun’s name was supervised by the army. Each time a squad of workmen entered a temple or tomb to destroy the name of Amun, it was supported by a squad of soldiers who came to see that the royal decree was carried out to the fullest.

The military garrison at Amarna had detachments of Sinai Bedouins and foreign auxiliaries, in addition to Egyptian units. The loyalty of the army to Akhenaten was assured by its commander, Aye, his uncle, who held posts among the highest in the military.

The persecution of the old gods, however, proved to be hateful to the majority of Egyptians, including members of the army. Ultimately the harshness of the persecution had a certain reaction upon the soldiers who, themselves, had been raised in the old beliefs.  After all, the officers and soldiers themselves believed in the same gods whose images the king ordered them to destroy.  They worshipped in the very temples which they were ordered to close.  A conflict arose between the king and his army.  Akhenaten’s belief in one God, however, was too deep for him to allow any compromise with the priests. Horemheb, Pa-Ramses and Seti, planned a military coup against the king, and ordered their troops from the north and south to move towards Amarna. Aye, who received news of the troops’ movements, brought his chariots to guard Amarna. When the army and chariots came face to face at Amarna’s borders, Aye advised the king to abdicate the throne to his son Tutankhaten, in order to save the dynasty. Akhenaten agreed to abdicate and left Amarna with Pa-Nehesy, the high priest of Aten, and few of his followers to live in exile in area of Sarabit El-Khadem in southern Sinai.

On hearing about Horemheb’s death, Akhenaten decided to leave his exile in Sinai and come back to Egypt, in order to reclaim his throne. Since his abdication, he had been living in exile in southern Sinai, with few of his followers, for about twenty five years, during the reigns of Tutankhamun, Aye, and Horemheb. Here, Akhenaten lived among the Shasu (Midianites Bedouins with whom he formed an alliance.

In his rough Bedouin cloths, Akhenaten arrived at Pa-Ramses’ residence in the border city of Zarw, his birthplace that had been turned into a prison for his followers. General Pa-Ramses, by now an old man, was making arrangements for his coronation, and getting ready to become the first ruler of a new 19th Ramesside dynasty, when he was informed of Akhenaten’s arrival. Akhenaten challenged Pa-Ramses’ right to the throne. The general, taken by surprise, decided to call a meeting of the wise men of Egypt to decide between them. At the gathering Akhenaten produced his scepter of royal power, which he had taken with him to exile, and performed some secret rituals, which only the king had the knowledge of. Once they saw the scepter of royal authority and Akhenaten’s performance of the rituals, the wise men fell down in adoration in front of him, and declared him to be the legitimate king of Egypt. Ramses, however, who was in control of the army, refused to accept the wise men’s verdict and decided to establish his rule by force.

When Akhenaten realized that his life was threatened by Rameses, he escaped from Zarw with some of his followers during the night, and rejoined his Shasu allies in Sinai. However, he refused to accept defeat and decided to carry on challenging Ramses’ right to rule Egypt. Akhenaten gathered his Shasu allies in Sinai, and decided to cross the borders of Egypt into Canaan (a region approximating present-day Israel), where he could establish his rule in foreign parts of the Egyptian empire, in order to prepare an army to allow him to return and challenge Ramses. When Ramses got knowledge of Akhenaten’s plan, he decided to go out at the head of his army and crush the Bedouin power before they crosses the borders to Canaan. Rameses, however, died at this moment and was followed by his son Seti I.

Seti left the body of his father for the priests to mummify, and went out to chase Akhenaten and his Shasu followers in northern Sinai. After setting out on the route between the fortified city of Zarw and Gaza and passing the fortified water stations, pushing along the road in the Negev, the king scattered the Shasu who from time to time gathered in sufficient numbers to meet him. A military confrontation took place in the very first days of Seti I, on the route between Zarw and Gaza in Canaan. Just across the Egyptian border he arrived at the fortified town of Pe-Kanan, (Gaza), and stopped the Shasu entering it

Ezekiel‘s Wheel within Wheel

Ezekiel a priest about the year 600 BCE would be emboldened by the story of Moses and the Tabernacle.  Scholars not having lived in the time period do not know all the Bible’s meanings.  There is no original manuscript of the Bible.  As Hebrew and Greek were the original languages of the Bible, like all languages, some idioms and concepts were not easily translated.


To Ezekiel in referring to the orientation of an object like left, right, front, or back, he most likely would use the Biblical terms that he was most familiar with, such as from the Tabernacle. According to rabbinical tradition about 1,350 BCE Hebrew tribes were driven out of Egypt. They based themselves at Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments.  A portable dwelling was built to specifications of God known as the Tabernacle. The twelve Hebrew Tribes were told by God to camp around the Tabernacle holding the banners of their family known as the Camps. To the east there was Judah with the banner of a lion in gold with a bright orange-tinged red color backdrop.  To the South there was Reuben with a banner of a man against the background of gold.  To the west there was Ephraim with the banner of an ox in black over a backdrop of gold.  To the north there was Dan with the banner of an eagle of gold against a Blue backdrop.  Thus to the right side referred to a lion, to the back side referred man, to the left side referred to ox, and to the front side referred eagle. These symbols were used similar to how we use the orientation of a ship port side, starboard side, bow, and Stern. Note that this refers to the craft and not the Cardinal Points of a compass (North, East, South or West) or the direction a person is facing. The Bible was written and translated by people that were not familiar with the modern machines of today, including airplanes. The Biblical Prophet, Ezekiel, presumed “Living Creatures” were alive since they could fly through the air and do things only living creatures were capable of doing in his time period. Therefore, “Living Creatures” might be referring to a UFO controlled by a living creature, a pilot.  Presuming that he considered that a UFO was alive, he might be describing the undercarriage of a landing system which includes a landing strut (a structural platform that is pivoted on one side) in which he calls a wing, landing gear doors, and bracing.  A “face” has many definitions of which one is a “surface”.


With all the above in mind,  the Bible gives us a good description of what one of these flying vehicles looks like in the Book of Ezekiel where Ezekiel describes four Living Creatures called “Cherubim.

Paraphrasing, this is my interpretation of the Bible’s Ezekiel 1:4 to 1:26:

1:4 And I looked, and, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of orange-yellow, out of the midst of the fire.

1-5 Also out of the midst thereof came the look of four flying machines. And this was their appearance; the pilots had the look of a man.

1-6 And every flying vehicle had four cowling surfaces, and every vehicle had four landing gears.

1-7 And their end of landing gear legs were straight legs; and the bottom of the foot was like a round footpad: and they glow like the color of polished brass.

1- 8 And the flying machines had struts under their four landing gear on each side; and the flying machines each had the cowling surfaces and their four landing gears.

1-9 Their four landing gears were pulled up; the flying machines did not turn when they flew; the flying machines all flew straight forward.

1-10 As for the look of the surfaces, the four flying machines each the stern side on one surface, and the starboard side on one surface, on the right side: and the four flying machines each had port side on the surface on the left side; the four flying machines each also had the stern side on the surface.

1-11 Thus were the cowlings surfaces: and the flying vehicles four landing gears were extended upward retracted into the flying vehicle; a landing gear of each flying vehicle were joined one to another or adjacent to each other (Note: This would be on the right side under the cowlings with the image of a man and lion), and two landing gears covered the flying vehicles bodies (This would be under the cowling on the left side with an image of an ox and the under the cowling with the image of an eagle.)

1-12 And all the flying vehicles flew straight forward: as directed by the pilot (spirit), the flying vehicles flew; and the flying vehicles did not turn when the flying vehicles flew.

1-13 As for the looks of the flying vehicles, their appearance was dark grey with a bright red aura, and like the appearance of lamps: the red aura went up and down among the flying machines; and the aura was bright, and out of the aura came lightning.

1-14 And the flying machines maneuvered as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

1-15  Now as I observe the flying machines, I observe one flying machine landed by the flying machines, with cowlings in flying position.

1-16 The appearance of the flying machines and their performance was white lacking color: and the four flying machines had one look: and their appearance and performance was as the flying machines were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

1-17 When the flying machines flew through the air, they flew through the air tilted on their sides: and the flying machines did not turn when they flew through the air.

1-18  As for the flying machines rings, they were so overhead that they were frightful; and their rings were full of portholes which surround the circumference of the four flying machines.

1-19 And in the departure of the flying machines, the flying machines go in formation, and in the flying machines ascend from off the ground, ascended are the flying machines.

1-20 To whatever place the pilot was to go, the flying machines flew, to that place the flying machine pilot was to go; and the wheels ascended alongside everyone: for the pilot of the flying machine was in the flying machines.

1-21 When that flew, this flew; and when that landed, this landed; and when that ascended from the earth, the flying machines ascended alongside everyone: for the pilot of the flying machine was in the flying machines.

1-22 And the look of the dome on the upper surfaces of the flying machines was frightening transparent, extended on over above the flying machines upper surface.

1-23 And under the transparent dome the flying machines inside hinged structural platforms were extended out straight, one toward another; and each flying machine had two hinged structural platforms covering its physical structure.

1-24 And when the flying vehicles flew, I heard the noise of their vehicles, like the noise of a lot of water, as the sound of the all-powerful, the sound of conversation, as the clutter of multitude people: when the flying machines landed, the flying machines let down their landing gear.

1-25 And there was a voice from the second story that was over the vehicles retractable floor upper surfaces, when the flying machines landed, and had let down the landing gear.

1-26  And above the second story that was over the vehicles retractable floor upper surfaces was the look of a pilot’s seat, as the look of a brilliant blue color: and on the look of a pilot’s seat was the look as the form of a man sitting on it.

The fact that the Bible describes the objects as in the sky and how they fly reinforces the physical nature of these vehicles. They descend and land on the ground, they ascend and takeoff from the ground, they hover above the ground, and that they travel swiftly in flight shows that they are aerial vehicles. These flight traits also show that these vehicles are under control while in flight and not actual clouds, whirlwinds, or storms. Since a being speak out of the object it implies that the vehicle is a controlled by a being or pilot. Therefore a person could conclude with a fare degree of certainty that flying machines in the Bible called “Cherubim” are the same thing that we refer to as UFOs today.

The Bible gives many examples of angels appearing in flying vehicles or on solid ground. Using hundreds of verses as evidence, we can determine the following: The Gods and divine beings of the Bible travel in rapidly flying, glowing, flashing, spinning, metallic objects, which appear dark and solid, like low clouds in daylight, while brightly lit, with projected beams of light at night. These objects descend to the ground, ascend into the sky, and hover above the ground for long periods. Sounds are broadcast from them, and they exhibit advanced knowledge that appear to alter the natural laws of science. Humans and other beings are described as ascending up into and descending down from these objects and perception of time is altered. In many of the world’s ancient writings those beings called gods commonly fly in objects with very similar descriptions to those in the Bible.

An angel is “an ethereal being found in many religions, whose duties are to assist and serve God”.  Angels are the deputies and messengers of God. They are the most physically present of the spiritual beings in the eternal world of the God. They are protectors of the God and mankind. They are not gods. The images that we know today as angels were based on the imagination of painters and sculptors of long ago. They are depicted as having bird-like wings, soft and beautiful features, perfect blonde hair, and lily-white skin, gentle in nature, crowned with a halo, strumming a harp, and standing on a cloud, or flying amongst the clouds. Such descriptions are nowhere to be found in scripture. With centuries of conditioning, the image of what angels “should” look like is firmly ingrained in the human mind. What is important to consider is that the image of angels was determined by artists and the nature of angels was taken from tradition, not scripture.

The Bible refers to flying machines as “Living Creatures” and “Cherubim”.   Seraphim and Beasts are described in a manner that indicates they may also be devices or machines. The beings flying of these vehicles are God, angels and perhaps modern day men.  Does Satan or the devils also fly in these machines? The 12th chapter of Revelation contains the description of a woman giving birth to a child, who Satan attempts to kill.  He fails, is engaged in battle by the forces of the Archangel Michael and is defeated, and “cast” to the Earth with his angels.  (Revelation 12:7) “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Therefore the Bible tells us that Satan, the Devil and his angles have not been flying around in our modern skies since the birth of Christ. In verse 8, the phrase “neither was their place found any more in heaven” show that this condition is permanent.

For almost 2000 years after the last book of the Bible was written, there were no forms of artificial light.  The only lights known were the sun, the moon, stars, fire, lightning, and reflections from those sources.  It is not surprising that these sources are what the authors used to describe the illumination appearing from these vehicles and the beings associated with them. In Exodus 13:21 “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night”.

Translates “The Lord ‘Yahweh’ lead the nation of Israel out of Egypt by day in a UFO and by night by a brightly luminous red or orange UFO, for they could travel day and night.”

The fact that the authors wrote about the flight routine of these objects is evidence that they have a distinct physical presence. Also, note the fact that UFOs do not appear without The Lord “Yahweh” himself or his ambassadors clearly described as directing these flying objects.

The same characteristics described in the Bible and many other ancient writings are used to describe UFO sightings throughout our history, right up to our modern era. In our skies today, we see the same incredible high tech flying craft, with the same flight characteristics, and the same advanced technology. The only difference is that in the Bible and in other ancient writings they were clearly identified as the flying vehicles that the gods used for transportation. In our modern age they are called “unidentified flying objects”, presumably piloted by aliens. Modern UFOs are the same flying vehicles controlled by the same beings that flew in ancient times. Gods and angels that were associated with the ancient record are the same beings reported in our modern age. Now they are called aliens or extraterrestrials. The difference is in name only.

For thousands of years people, all over the world, have reported direct contact with occupants of high-tech flying objects. Only in recent times has there been any consideration that they are a threat to mankind. Fear that UFOs might enslave the world and steal the Earth’s resources or even worst use people as fuel and eat them. Fears of the unknown not because UFOs have become more aggressive or that they have interfered with the flow of human conduct caused this. UFO abductions are sometimes used to prove evil intent, yet, less than 1% of all reported UFOs involve communication or direct contact with occupants. Only a few of these claim to be an actual abduction or being taken aboard.  No one has ever been able to prove conclusively that they were victims of an obtrusive or violent encounter.

Where is Heaven

To maintain a fleet of UFOs or Cherubim requires many personnel and a base of operations.  You need to be able to manufacture the vehicles, mechanics for repair and service, and fuel to operate them.  Food is essential for everyone involved in such operations.

If you take the Bible at its word, UFOs (or Cherubim) supplied the food to feed the people of Israel for forty years when they fled from Egypt in the time of Moses.  All of this requires a large base, with many people to operate from, but no base can be found.  So you have to take the words from God through the reading of the Bible.

A fleet of flying vehicles, described as the army or Hosts of God (Yahweh), appears several times in the Bible.  Psalms 68:17 “The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them.”  Hebrew for chariot is “Merkabah” meaning The Heavenly Throne.  The Hebrew dictionary defines Merkabah  as “the conception of Yahweh riding upon cherubim.”

The Bible describes this personnel in military terms, such as encampment (Gen.32:1-2), command structure (Ps.91:11-12; Matt.13:41; Rev.7:2), and combat (Jdg.5:20; Job 19:12; Rev.12:7). Its specific hierarchy differs slightly from the Hierarchy of Angels as it surrounds more military services, whereas the Hierarchy of angels is a division of angels into non-military services to God.  These fleet and personnel claim that they come from heaven but where is heaven?  The Bible distinguishes at least three uses of the word “heaven”.   The first can be found in Genesis 1:8 and 20, and refers to the atmosphere over the earth in which birds fly.  The second, mentioned in Genesis 1:14, is the setting for the celestial lights, later identified (Genesis 1:16) as the sun, moon and stars.  And the third heaven is where God is (2 Corinthians 12:1-5). So:

First heaven is the earth’s atmosphere or the air.

Second heaven is in space, the universe.

Third heaven is Paradise and being where God is.


Where is the third heaven or paradise located?  Our universe is a rather complicated place, and we don’t know for sure where (or if) heaven is located.  The Bible is very explicit that heaven is a real place.  It is the place where God dwells in the sense of manifesting himself, appearing to the angels and apparently to those who have died trusting in the Lord and have gone to be with him (our great retirement home in the sky).  It is not the same thing as our atmosphere heaven or the outer space heaven.  It is once called the “third heaven,” apparently to distinguish it from these other two. So let us look at the possible places of where the third heaven or paradise can be located.

  • Sky Model

Basically the idea is that the sky is some kind of a roof over our heads, and that angels come down through holes, either flying down to Earth’s surface, or lowering a ladder or something of that sort.  I don’t think there is too much question that people have maintained that view, and it certainly is common today to find theologians saying that’s what the Bible teaches.

  • Dimensional Model

To understand this model we have to go into the world of theoretical physicists Stephen Hawking and Edward Witte to examine particle physics, an attempt to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. This is known as the theory of everything, and describes the interaction with one another of fundamental forces or interactive forces and matter in a mathematically complete system.

The fundamental forces are the simplest particles in the universe and the basic building blocks from which all other particles are made. They have no substructure. The four known fundamental interactions, all of which are a force applied to an object by another body that is not in direct contact with it. They are: electromagnetism (the force that causes the interaction between electrically charged particles); strong interaction (the force that binds protons and neutrons together to form the nucleus of an atom); weak interaction (the force that holds the neutron together and causes radioactive beta-decay); and gravitation (the mutual force of attraction between all particles or bodies that have mass).

The atom, long believed to be the smallest building block of matter, consists of even smaller components called protons, neutrons and electrons.  Protons and neutrons are themselves made up of even smaller particles called quarks. Quantum theory is the set of rules that describes the interactions of these particles.  All these particles, and all of the forms of energy in the universe, could be constructed by hypothetical one-dimensional, infinitely small building-blocks that have only the dimension of length, but not height or width.  In theoretical physics, these building blocks are thought to be “1-dimensional slices of a 2-dimensional membrane vibrating in 11-dimensional space”. These building blocks are thought to vibrate in multiple dimensions, and depending on how they vibrate they might be seen in 3-dimensional space as matter, light, or the effect of gravity. It is the vibration of the building blocks which determines whether it appears to be matter or energy, and every form of matter or energy is the result of the vibration of these building blocks.

We are familiar with height, width, and length as three dimensional space and time gives a total of four observable dimensions. However, the universe is made up of multiple dimensions. These building blocks of matter supported the possibility of 11 dimensions based on various observations of the fundamental forces or interactive forces, and matter. What does an 11 dimensional universe look like?  To us it can look as confusing, chaotic, or nonexistent, etc. This is because we cannot see or even know it is there.  An example is your “being” or “soul”.  For all practical reasoning, and within the rules of accepted science, your soul does not exist.  Your logic about your soul’s existence is totally confusing, chaotic, and only points to the fact that your soul or being does not exist, but you reason that this logic is wrong because you do exist. This is an example of just one of these dimensions.  The other dimensions, according theoretical physics, support a “multiverse” or many universes, in addition to our known universe. Here, each universe takes the form of a D-brane (Dirichlet membrane), which is the notion that “Strings” can attach and loosen, as String Theory prescribes. Objects in each universe are essentially confined to the D-brane of their universe, but may be able to interact with other universes via gravity, a force which is not restricted to D-branes.”

Having multiple dimensions, the universes could quite literally occupy the same space, but because the rules, constants, and variables of nature may be different, we cannot see it or interact with it.  Nevertheless, it is there, and it would occupy and make up the same space that we exist in. That could mean that you might be sitting here reading this article, and in this other universe, a motorcycle rider might be driving right through your same space, but you wouldn’t hear or feel a thing!

One of these universes could be the Third Heaven. It is all around us, but has a different set of forces that don’t interact with our known forces, and at least no with any of our sensory apparatus.  If a person wanted to go from one universe to another, that person would need to have some sort of switch, some way of turning the interaction between our world and the other on and off, so they can become visible or invisible to us. This “switch” is dimensional, one that we cannot see or even know it is there.  To us it may not even exist, except within the limitations of our brain.

Moving in and out of the three-dimensional space makes an object first visible, and then invisible, to beings who are confined in that space.  Moving out and then back into the three-dimensional space makes a traveler able, and then unable to see the larger dimensional space outside.  This model has invisibility built in.  There is always this dimension into which we cannot see, move, or visualize.  UFOs,  as well as people,  have been reported to move in and out of our three-dimensional space.  This has not only been reported in the Bible, but by testimony from people throughout history.  This model offers a possible way as to how this is achieved.

Another questionable facet of accepted Biblical doctrine is the Holy Spirit as an individual member of a supreme triad. Is the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, a being, a spiritual force, or perhaps the vibrations in 11-dimensional space that Dr. Kaku refers to as, “The mind of God”.

  • Deep Space Model

In this view, heaven is beyond the stars, beyond the galaxies, perhaps beyond the universe, millions or billions of light years away.  As man has gone out into space, inching farther into the void, and has not seen any obvious evidence of God, angels, or UFOs.  It appears that UFOs or Cherubim obey the laws of nature and are restricted to the maximum speed of light. The nearest solar system to our earth is about 6 light years away.  This would mean that it would take a minimum of 12 years to fly round trip to Earth if UFOs or Cherubim could fly at the speed of light, which is unlikely.  This way-out model therefore has what we might call a transport problem.  From the biblical accounts in general, it appears that the contact between heaven and earth is quite rapid.  It doesn’t seem to be something that takes a long time — “today, you will be with me in Paradise.”  We could say, “Oh, well, God has no problem with instantaneous transport.


In Albert Einstein’s theory of space and time, the two combine as a single entity called “space-time.”  We treat space-time as a smooth fabric which is distorted by the presence of energy. What’s happening is simply that the distance between any two points in the Universe is changing according to a particular set of rules in the context of General Relativity. If you were able to reduce the distance between any two points by some force, an object traveling between the two points would appear to be traveling greater than the speed of light  The more force you were able to apply to the distance between the two points would decrease to almost nothing.

Using this concept of a nuclear strong force gravity modifier (see Chapter 3), if enough force was applied, a space craft could travel from one point in our Universe to any other point in our universe, instantaneously. This force is produced by creating antimatter in order to release the strong force that holds element 115 together. All this happens on the microscopic level. In other words, at a small distance ahead of the craft in the direction of travel, the distance of travel would be reduced causing the craft to move forward, similar to being sucked by a vacuum.  Once the craft moves forward, the process would repeat itself.

There is one type of extraterrestrial being that fits all the criteria of the Biblical angels, and they are the “Nordics”.  They are named so, because they look like Norse Gods – blonde with brilliant blue eyes, fair complexion, and having the bodies of tall, finely-toned athletes.

The “Greys”, on the other hand, are extraterrestrial beings who get a lot of attention when it comes to alien sightings. Their appearance is short of stature, wrinkled gray skin, and having the iconic large black eyes, which is the main feature of their face.

The Nordics are a species that come into contact with humans almost as much as the Greys, but they are more interested in the well-being of the human race and religion than the Greys.   Some eyewitness reports claim to have seen Nordics in the same alien craft as Greys. A possible explanation for this is that those Greys were slaves or servants to the Nordics. If the Nordic ETs are in fact the biblical angels, and Heaven is where they come from, then Biblical Heaven is located in Pleiades Star cluster.


Chapter 2

Brief UFO History

UFO History to 1947

UFOs have been seen from Earth as long as there have been people to record them. While there is no written record of prehistoric UFOs, there are plenty of pictographs, petroglyphs, and other forms of art left behind going back as far as 45,000 BCE.  In the Hunan Province of China, there are clear depictions in rock carvings of round UFO-like symbols that are thousands of years old.  Texts and manuscripts going back more than 3000 years are found in China that tell of “Sons from the sky”, descending to Earth on a star which was in the shape of what we now refer to as a saucer.


In Egypt at The Palace of Pharaoh Thutmosis III around 1500 BCE, manuscripts recorded “Circles of fire [that] hovered over the palace”.  In 329 BCE   Alexander the Great recorded two great silver shields in the sky, spitting fire around the rims, that dived repeatedly at his army as they were attempting a river crossing.  The action so panicked his elephants, horses, and men that they had to abandon the river crossing until the following day.  In the year 776 CE, as the Saxons were laying siege to Charlemagne’s Sigiburg castle in France, “Flying Shields”, reddish in color, appeared in the sky and rained down fire on the attacking army and protected the French.

The first official investigation of a UFO sighting occurred in Japan in the year 1235. During the night while General Yoritsume and his army were encamped, mysterious lights were observed in the heavens. The general ordered a “full-scale scientific investigation” of these strange events. Later in Japan, in 1271, the famous priest Nichiren was about to be beheaded at Tatsunokuchi, Kamakura, when there appeared in the sky an object like a full moon, shiny and bright.  The officials panicked and the execution was not carried out.

On Christopher Columbus’ voyage in 1492, while on the deck of the Santa Maria, Columbus and Pedro Gutierrez observed, “a light glimmering at a great distance.” It vanished and reappeared several times during the night, moving up and down, “in sudden and passing gleams.” It was sighted 4 hours before land was sighted, and taken by Columbus as a sign they would soon come to land.

The astronomer Edmond Halley, discoverer of his namesake comet, recalls an experience in 1716 in which he saw an object that hovered for more than two hours. In England, 1882, a number of eminent scientists, including the Greenwich astronomer Dr. E. Walter Maunder, English scientist J. Rand Capron, and noted Dutch astronomers Audemans and Zeeman, along with several others, witnessed a saucer-shaped object during the night.

In Portugal in 1917, an assembled crowd of people, having been told by three little girls that the Virgin Mary would appear on a certain date and at a certain location, witnessed what they described as “the Sun” moving out of its position, coming close to the Earth, wobbling, moving to and fro, and then retreating back to its original position.  Known as the “Miracle of Fatima,” researchers, religious historians, and the Catholic Church have not been able to adequately explain the events of that day.

The Aurora UFO Crash of 1897

On April 17, 1897, a UFO crashed on a farm near Aurora, Texas, United States. The incident, similar to the more famous Roswell UFO incident 50 years later, is claimed to have resulted in a fatality of the occupant. The being was “not of this world.”  The UFO is said to have hit a windmill on the property of  Judge J.S. Proctor two days earlier, at around 6 a.m. local (Central) time, which resulted in the crash.  The alien did not survive the crash. According to a report by an officer named T.J. Weems of the Army Signal Service, it was a “Martian”.  The alien was buried at the nearby Aurora Cemetery with Christian rites” by a traveling pastor named William Russell Taybor. The cemetery contained a Texas Historical Commission marker mentioning the incident, but it has since been removed.

Reportedly, wreckage from the crash site was dumped into a nearby well located under the damaged windmill.  Adding to the mystery was the story of Mr. Brawley Oates who purchased Judge Proctor’s property around 1935. Oates cleaned out the debris from the well in order to use it as a water source, but later developed an extremely severe case of arthritis, which he claimed to be the result of contaminated water from the wreckage that had been dumped into the well. As a result, Oates sealed the well with a concrete slab, and placed an outbuilding atop the slab. According to writing on the slab, this was done in 1945.

In December, 2005, the television show UFO Files first aired an episode related to the Aurora incident, titled “Texas’ Roswell.”  It featured a 1973 investigation led by Bill Case, an aviation writer for the Dallas Times Herald, and Director of the Texas Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

MUFON uncovered two new eyewitnesses to the crash.  Mary Evans, who was 15 at the time, told of how her parents went to the crash site and the discovery of the alien body.  Charlie Stephens, who was age 10, told how he saw the airship trailing smoke as it headed north toward Aurora. He wanted to see what happened, but his father made him finish his chores; later, he told how his father went to town the next day and saw wreckage from the crash.

MUFON then investigated the Aurora Cemetery and uncovered a grave marker that appeared to show a flying saucer of some sort, as well as readings from its metal detector. MUFON asked for permission to exhume the site, but the cemetery association declined permission. After the MUFON investigation, the marker mysteriously disappeared from the cemetery and a three-inch pipe was placed into the ground; MUFON’s metal detector no longer picked up metal readings from the grave, thus it was presumed that the metal was removed from the grave.

MUFON’s report eventually stated that the evidence was inconclusive, but did not rule out the possibility of a hoax. The episode featured an interview with Mayor Brammer who discussed the town’s intriguing history.

On November 19, 2008, the television broadcast, UFO Hunters aired a documentary regarding the Aurora incident, titled, “First Contact”.   The documentary featured one notable change from the UFO Files story – Tim Oates, grandson of Brawley Oates and the now-owner of the property with the sealed well where the UFO wreckage was purportedly buried, allowed the investigators to unseal the well, in order to examine it for possible debris. Water was taken from the well which tested normal except for large amounts of aluminum present; the well had no significant debris contents. It was stated in the episode that large pieces of metal had been removed from the well by a past owner of the property.  Further, the remains of a windmill base were found near the well site.

UFO Files re-examined the Aurora Cemetery for any further evidence.  Although the cemetery association still did not permit exhumation, UFO Files used ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and photos from prior visits, and an unmarked grave was found in the area near other 1890s graves. The condition of the grave, however, was badly deteriorated, and the GPR could not conclusively prove what type of remains had previously existed. The land owner gave them pieces of metal that contained mostly aluminum and an unknown element.

The Battle of Los Angeles

On February 23, 1942 an aerial barrage over Los Angles was initiated thinking UFOs were an attacking force from Japan, It became known as The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as the Great Los Angeles Air Raid.

In the months following the Imperial Japanese Navy’s attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, and the United States’ entry into World War II the next day, public outrage and paranoia intensified across the country and especially on the West Coast, where fears of a Japanese attack on or invasion of the mainland were acknowledged as realistic possibilities. As the U.S. began mobilizing for the war, anti-aircraft guns were installed, bunkers were built, and air raid precautions were drilled into the populace all over the country. Contributing to the paranoia was the fact that many American merchant ships were indeed attacked by Japanese submarines in waters off the West Coast.

On February 23, 1942, at 7:15 pm, during one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats, Japanese submarine I-17 surfaced near Santa Barbara, California, and shelled Ellwood Oil field in Goleta. Although damage was minimal with no injuries, the attack had a profound effect on the public imagination.  West Coast residents came to believe that the Japanese could storm their beaches at any moment.

The next day, the Office of Naval Intelligence issued a warning that an attack on mainland California could be expected within the next ten hours. That evening, many flares and blinking lights were reported from the vicinity of defense plants. An alert was called at 7:18 pm, and was lifted at 10:23 pm.  Renewed activity began early in the morning of 25 February.  US Navy radar had picked up an unidentified object 120 miles to the west of the city, and had been tracking it since shortly after midnight. By 2:15 am, anti-aircraft stations were put on standby alert. Air raid sirens sounded at 2:25 a.m. throughout Los Angeles County. A total blackout was ordered, and thousands of air raid wardens were summoned to their positions. Citizens of Culver City and Santa Monica would be the first to witness the surreal sight of a giant unknown object hovering over the suburban areas of Los Angeles. The U.S. Army’s 37th Coast Artillery Brigade swung into action, lighting up the clear, black skies with their massive spotlights.

Katie was a young and highly-successful interior decorator and artist. She lived on the west side of Los Angeles, not far from Santa Monica. Katie volunteered to become an Air Raid Warden as did 12,000 other residents in the sprawling city of Los Angeles and surrounding communities. In the early morning hours of February 25th, Katie’s phone rang. It was the Air Raid supervisor in her district notifying her of an alert and asking if she had seen the object in the sky very close to her home. She immediately walked to a window and looked up. “It was huge! It was just enormous! And it was practically right over my house. I had never seen anything like it in my life!” she said. “It was just hovering there in the sky and hardly moving at all.” With the city blacked out, Katie, and hundreds of thousands of others, were able to see the eerie visitor with spectacular clarity. “It was a lovely pale orange and about the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. I could see it perfectly because it was very close. It was big! They sent fighter planes up (the Army denied any of its fighters were in action) and I watched them in groups approach it and then turn away. They were shooting at it, but it didn’t seem to matter. Katie is insistent about the use of planes in the attack on the object. The planes were apparently called off after several minutes and then at 3:16 am, the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade began firing .50-caliber machine guns and 12.8-pound anti-aircraft shells into the air at the reported aircraft.  “It was like the Fourth of July, but much louder. They were firing like crazy, but they couldn’t touch it.” The attack on the object lasted over half an hour.  Many eyewitnesses talked of numerous “direct hits” on the big craft but no damage at all was visible. In fact, it would appear as though the huge shells simply fell to the ground at the last moment.  “I’ll never forget what a magnificent sight it was, just marvelous. And what a gorgeous color!” said Katie.

Retired anthropology professor, Scott Littleton, who was only a young boy at the time, and whose father was also an air raid warden, had an almost perfect view of the incident. He described the object as, “like a lozenge”.  Artillery shells were exploding “all around it”.  Also, like Katie, he claimed the very real presence of American fighter aircraft.  Eyewitness accounts described the object as, “a surreal, hanging, magic lantern.”  The object was especially visible as it hovered over the MGM studios in Culver City. The object eventually made its way over Long Beach before it silently disappeared from view. The artillery fire continued sporadically until 4:14 am. The “all clear” was sounded and the blackout order was lifted at 7:21 a.m.  Over 1,440 shells of anti-aircraft ammunition were eventually fired.  Several buildings and vehicles were damaged by shell fragments, and five civilians died as an indirect result of the anti-aircraft fire. Three were killed in car accidents in the ensuing chaos and two of heart attacks attributed to the stress of the hour-long action.

Within hours after the air raid, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox held a press conference, saying the entire incident had been a false alarm due to anxiety and “war nerves”. The Fourth Air Force had indicated its belief that there were no planes over Los Angeles. But the Army did not publish these initial conclusions. Instead, it waited a day, until after a thorough examination of witnesses had been concluded. On the basis of these hearings, local commanders altered their stance, and indicated a belief that from one to five “unidentified airplanes” had been over Los Angeles.  Some contemporary press outlets suspected a cover-up of the truth. An editorial in the Long Beach Independent wrote, “There is a mysterious reticence about the whole affair and it appears that some form of censorship is trying to halt discussion on the matter.”

The first well documented reports in the United States started on June 24, 1947 when private pilot Kenneth Arnold spotted nine disk-shaped objects in the air near Mt. Rainier, Washington.  Mr. Arnold described that these objects moved like a rock skipping over water.  Newspapers coined them with the phrase, “flying saucers”.  This started a wave of UFO sightings.  In the months of June and July of 1947, 853 sightings occurred.  California had the most sightings with 107 cases while Washington was second with 84 sightings.  Oregon was third with 52 sightings and Idaho fourth with 43 sightings.

Maury Island Incident, 1947

In 1947, a common hazard in the waters of Puget Sound was the logs that floated on its surface. They escaped from “jams” waiting to be turned into lumber at nearby mills on the shore. Several men worked as an informal harbor patrol, snagging these logs and taking them to the mills for a salvage fee. Harold Dahl worked on one of these boats, and his supervisor on shore was Fred Crisman.

Dahl reported that on June 21, 1947 he was on his patrol boat with two men, his son, and their dog. Around two in the afternoon, Dahl’s boat approached the east shore of Maury Island. Maury Island is now attached to Vashon Island by a causeway road, and is about six miles west of Des Moines, Washington. Dahl looked in the sky and saw six objects floating about two thousand feet above his boat. The objects were made of some reflective metal, doughnut shaped, and about one hundred feet in diameter. The center holes were about twenty-five feet in diameter. Dahl said he also saw round portholes and what he thought was an observation window. Five of the craft circled over the sixth, which dropped slowly. It stopped and hovered about five hundred feet above the water.

Dahl put to shore because he was afraid that the center aircraft was going to crash into his boat. Once ashore, Dahl took several pictures with his camera. The lower ship stayed in position for about five minutes, with the others still circling above. One of the craft left the formation and moved down, touching one of the lower ones. The two kept contact for several minutes, until Dahl said he heard a thud. Suddenly, thousands of pieces of what he thought were newspapers dropped from the inside of the center vehicle. Most of the debris landed in the bay, though some hit the beach. Dahl recovered a few pieces, finding it was a white, lightweight metal. Along with the white metal, the UFO dropped about twenty tons of a dark metal material, which he said looked like lava rock. When the lava rock hit the water, it was so hot that steam erupted. They took cover after several pieces landed on his boat. Some debris hit his son on the arm, burning him, and another piece killed his dog.

After the rain of metal, all six craft rose into the air and headed west out to sea. Dahl went to his boat and tried to radio for help, but it did not work. They sailed back toward their dock, dropping the dog over the side as a burial at sea. Dahl took his son to the hospital for treatment and then told his boss, Fred Crisman, what had happened. Dahl gave Crisman the camera, and when the prints were developed, they showed the strange air ships. However, the negatives had spots on them, which he compared to film damaged by exposure to radiation. Crisman said he did not believe Dahl’s story, so he went back to Maury Island and gathered some rock samples. He said that while he was gathering the rocks, one of the airships appeared overhead, as if it was watching him.

Dahl told investigators that the next morning, a man wearing a dark suit visited him, and suggested they go to breakfast together. Dahl drove his own car, following the stranger’s late model black Buick to a local eatery. While they ate, the stranger asked no questions; instead he gave a detailed account of what had happened to Dahl the day before. The man in black warned Dahl that bad things would happen to him and his family if he told anyone about the incident. This was the first case that a witness claimed that a “man in black” intimidated him into silence.

Dahl and Crisman sent a package containing a box of metal fragments and statements about the strange happenings on the 21st and 22nd of July to publisher Ray Palmer, a magazine editor in Chicago.  As the fragments were being sent to Chicago, the now famous UFO sighting by Kenneth Arnold took place at Mount Rainier in Washington State. Palmer contacted Arnold and asked him to detail the incident for the story he was writing for one of Palmer’s publications. Palmer inaugurated the first issue of Fate magazine in January 1948 with a cover featuring flying discs, along with Arnold’s intriguing first-hand account.

Arnold arrived in Tacoma in late July with airline pilot E.J. Smith. The two of them met with Dahl and Crisman, examined Dahl’s boat, and conducted extensive interviews. Dahl and Crisman did not produce the pictures, however. Dahl also told Arnold that his son had disappeared. Dahl said later that his son was found waiting tables in Montana, but he could not remember how he got there. On the afternoon of July 31, Captain Lee Davidson and First Lieutenant Frank Brown of the U.S. Army Air Force flew to Tacoma from Hamilton Field, California.

In addition to being pilots, the two men were intelligence specialists. They met with Arnold, Smith, and Crisman for several hours. One of the officers said that he thought there might have been “something” to the story, but they had to leave around midnight. They were in a hurry to be at Hamilton Field on August 1, the day when the Air Force was to split from the Army. The two officers flew out of McChord Air Field around two o’clock in the morning on a B-25 bomber, with a crew of two other men. About twenty minutes later, the airplane crashed near Centralia, Washington. The two enlisted men managed to parachute to safety, but Davidson and Brown were killed, making them the U.S. Air Force’s first casualties.

Dahl and Crisman said that the Air Force officers took some of the strange metal onboard. People thought they heard anti-aircraft guns shoot the plane down. The local newspapers and FBI received phone calls stating that the plane was shot down in order to cover up the information Brown and Davidson had found. Because of the loss of life, the Air Force broadened its investigation and the FBI launched their own. The Air Force investigators determined that the crash had been a terrible accident. One of the engines caught fire and the men to begin bailing out. Before Brown and Davidson could jump out, a wing broke and struck the tail section, which also broke off. The plane went into a spin, trapping the men inside.

Another Air Force investigator spoke with Dahl and Crisman and visited their boat. He stated that the damage he saw did not match the damage the two boatmen had described. There were no piles of metal on Maury Island, and the existing samples looked like slag from a metal smelter. His conclusion matched that of the FBI investigator: that Dahl and Crisman had faked the incident to gain publicity for a magazine article. The FBI warned Dahl and Crisman that their hoax had not succeeded, and that if they dropped the matter, the government would not prosecute the two men for the fraud which had resulted in the deaths of the two officers. At first Dahl and Crisman went along. They made statements that the story was a fake and simply refused to give interviews on the matter. But a few years later in the January 1950 issue of Fate magazine, Crisman stated that the incident had happened. Some investigators recently visited the crash site, hoping to find some of the strange rocks to prove things one way or another, but so far, no answers have been found.  Dahl’s alleged photographs were also nowhere to be found.

Kenneth Arnold 1947 UFO Sighting

Kenneth Arnold was a 32-year-old businessman and pilot who at the time were searching for a downed transport plane. He initially thought the flying objects were jet aircraft, but was unable to discern any tails at the ends of what he had assumed were airplane fuselages. Looking more closely, he noted that all but one of the objects looked like flat discs. The story of Arnold’s sighting was reported in newspaper articles almost immediately and the term “flying saucers” was first coined in the news headlines for this story.

On Tuesday, June 24, 1947, Arnold told reporters from the East Oregonian publication that during a flight in his own plane, between Chehalis and Yakima, a chain of nine peculiar-looking aircraft, each about the size of a C-54, was seen in the region from Mount Rainier to Mount Adams.  “They flew close to the mountaintops, in a diagonal chainlike line,” he said later. “It was as if they were linked together.” The discs appeared to be twenty to twenty-five miles away and moving at fantastic speed, which Arnold estimated was twelve hundred miles per hour.  “I watched them [for] about three minutes,” he said. “They were swerving in and out around the high mountain peaks. They looked like a pie pan, and so shiny, they reflected the sun like a mirror. I never saw anything so flat. Their fronts were circular, and their backs were triangular—but one of them looked crescent- shaped.”

Arnold guessed that they were traveling at least twice the speed of sound. In the last days of June 1947, breaking the sound barrier had yet to be attained, and was the subject of much speculation and discussion among pilots. Arnold’s first thought was that they were some kind of new secret jets or guided missiles. But there was also another possibility that came to his mind after a moment – Soviet aircraft, as 1947 was a threshold year in the developing Cold War.

At Yakima, he told his story to pilots who remarked that the craft were bound to have been guided missiles from Moses Lake, Washington. Arnold recalled that “I felt satisfied that that’s probably what they were. However, I had never heard of a missile base at Moses Lake.” When he landed at Pendleton, Oregon, Arnold learned that his story had arrived ahead of him. The Yakima pilots had telephoned Pendleton to notify them of Arnold’s arrival and had related his adventure. No news reporters were present. After discussing this with the folks at Pendleton, and reaching the conclusion that these missiles were something out of the ordinary, Arnold, prepared with his maps and calculations so as to give “the best description I could” set off to the local FBI office. He found the office closed. Not having any luck with the FBI, Arnold decided to look up the journalists from the East Oregonian. One consideration in particular seems to have pushed him. As he explained to them, he had met, probably at the Hotel Pendleton where he was staying, a man from Ukiah, Oregon, who had said that he had seen a similar formation of craft there. Before leaving Pendleton, he went to the offices of the East Oregonian. He told Nolan Skiff and Bill Bequette about his adventure. Arnold described the discs as moving “like a saucer if you skipped it across the water.” Skeptical, Skiff and Bequette were won over by Arnold’s honesty. Bequette later submitted the story to the Associated Press.

As soon as Arnold’s story became widely known, sightings of flying discs proliferated. Starting from June 26 and over the days following, there were hundreds, even thousands, of newspaper articles devoted to flying discs. Most of the time saucers were explained away by scientists and military experts who asserted that “the observers just imagined they saw something, or there is some meteorological explanation for the phenomena.” Statements quoted in these stories are filled with expressions like, “mass hypnosis” and, “foolish things.” Saucers were compared to the Loch Ness Monster. The saucer craze created such a turmoil that the U.S. Air Force began an investigation in the early days of July. At the request of the Air Materiel Command, Arnold produced a written report detailing his sighting, which he had sent to Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio.

In 1948 Arnold’s report landed on J. Allen Hynek’s desk. Hynek was a civilian astronomer whom the Air Force had asked to study the reports, avoiding any possible confusion with natural astronomical phenomena. Hynek’s conclusion was that Arnold had seen some kind of aircraft. Arnold heard nothing about the eventual whereabouts of his report. He reasoned that he had to try other strategies in order to find a solution to his unusual sighting.

He accepted an invitation from the Chicago publisher, Ray Palmer, to go to Tacoma, Washington, and investigate another sighting. Palmer was the editor of the science fiction magazine called, Amazing Stories. The case Arnold investigated turned out to be a crude hoax, at least from the point of view of the FBI investigators. Arnold called in the two military investigators who had interviewed him earlier, along with Harold Dahl and Fred Crisman from the Maury Island UFO incident. Sadly, Brown and Davidson died in the airplane crash, returning to Hamilton Field, California with artifacts from that event.  From then on, the “saucer” story followed different paths.

In January 1948 the recently formed U.S. Air Force launched PROJECT SIGN in order to investigate the overwhelming number of UFO sightings. This project, located in the Technical Intelligence Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, was classified as Secret, and the public had access only to that which the press was allowed to report.

In the valleys around Mount Adams, Washington there are an incredible number of UFO sightings and other paranormal phenomena seen in the forests around the area. A few TV went to this area, and had some strange experiences, especially at night.

James Gilliland’s ranch sits in an area that is a prime viewing spot for all of these unusual occurrences. He “hosts” visitors to his ranch and promotes them to experience the nightly events. He established “Enlightened Contact with Extra Terrestrial Intelligence,” which sounds more like a cult, than an investigation into peculiar phenomena.

Popular Mechanics magazine did a country-wide study, issuing a report of its findings in December 2009 in an article called, “U.S. Map of the Top UFO Hotspots and How to Report a Sighting.”  Yakima County, Washington ranked 4th in the nation for the most UFOs spotted in a “Less Populated County”, according to the magazine.  From 1947 to current day, something out of the ordinary has been going on in that area for a long time.


Roswell UFO Crash

The Roswell UFO crash is the most famous UFO incident in history. It involved two UFOs. One exploded in the air near Corona, New Mexico spreading debris over a large area and the other UFO impacted the ground on the Plains of San Agustin New Mexico.  Hundreds of people were interviewed by various researchers, only a few of these people claimed to have seen debris or aliens. Of these 300-plus individuals reportedly interviewed for UFO Crash at Roswell, only 41 can be “considered genuine first -hand witnesses” and only 23 can be “reasonably thought to have seen physical evidence, debris”. Of these, only seven have asserted anything suggestive of otherworldly origins for the debris. However these 41 witnesses include doctors, nurses, military personnel, and pilots flying the Roswell debris to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.


No case has received more worldwide attention. Not only did the alleged crash of a flying saucer create mass coverage, but remains today an often discussed case. The Roswell saga actually began in Germany with the end of World War II. Russian and American intelligence teams began to track down scientific booty of the advanced German technology.  The US War Department decided that the US must not only control this technology, but also the scientists who had helped develop it. It was believed by the United States that we were alarmingly backward in many fields of research. That if we do not take this opportunity to seize this advanced German technology and the brains that developed it, that the United States will remain several years behind in fields already exploited. A top secret project later termed `Operation Paperclip’ was initiated to bring this technology and its scientists to the United States. There was however, one slight problem: It was illegal, for US law explicitly prohibited Nazi officials from immigrating to America, and as many as three-quarters of the scientists in question were allegedly committed passionate Nazis.


President Truman, however, decided that the national interest was paramount and that America needed the German scientists to work on America’s behalf. Operation Paperclip was carried out by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) and had two aims: Firstly, to exploit German Scientists for American research by rounding up Nazi scientists and taking them to America; and, secondly, to deny these intellectual resources to the Soviet Union. The name `Operation Paperclip’ was derived from the fact that those individuals selected to go to the United States were distinguished by paperclips on their files joining their scientific papers with regular immigration forms. At least 1600 scientists and their dependents were taken to America under Operation Paperclip and its successor projects.


One of these scientists was Dr. Wernher von Braun.  Von Braun was leader of what has been called the “Rocket Team”, which developed the V–2 ballistic missile for the Nazis during World War II.  Von Braun engineered the surrender of 500 of his top rocket scientists, along with plans and test vehicles, to the Americans.  He and his Rocket Team were sent to Fort Bliss, Texas. There they worked on rockets for the U.S. Army, launching them at White Sands Proving Ground, New Mexico. White Sands Proving Grounds was established in July 1945 where Robert Goddard had begun experimentation with liquid fuel rocket engines.  Dr.  von Braun and his Rocket Team used Goddard’s work as a starting point in a quest to build a rocket powerful enough to escape Earth’s gravity.

On June 25 in Silver City, New Mexico, a dentist by the name of Dr. R. F. Sensenbaugher reported seeing a saucer-shaped UFO fly over the area.  It was about one-half the size of the full moon. Two days later, in Pope, New Mexico, W. C. Dobbs reported a white, glowing object flying overhead, not too far from the White Sands missile range. On the same day, Captain E. B. Detchmendy reported to his commanding officer that he saw a white, glowing UFO pass over the missile range. Two days later, on June 29, rocket expert C. J. Zohn and three of his technicians, who were stationed at White Sands, watched a giant silver disc moving northward over the desert. Air Force security officials at White Sands theorized that the von Braun rocket program or the Trinity nuclear testing site might be the object of surveillance by UFOs, which they believed were a spacecraft from another world.

Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French, an Air Force pilot and Military Intelligence officer who was in Alamogordo, N.M., was being tested in an altitude chamber, an annual requirement for rated officers. In an exclusive interview, he told The Huffington Post that a UFO was “shot down by an experimental U.S. airplane that was flying out of White Sands, N.M.  The pilot used an electronic pulse-type weapon that disabled and took away all the controls of the UFO, and that’s why it crashed” on July 2, 1947.  “When they hit it with that electromagnetic pulse — bingo! — there goes all their electronics and, consequently, the UFO was uncontrollable.”

The UFO was joined by a second UFO believed to be an attempt to assist or rescue the disabled UFO. The UFOs were tracked at three separate installations; Alamogordo, White Sands, and Roswell. In Roswell, on the same day, Mr. and Mrs. Dan Wilmot reported that two inverted saucers faced mouth to mouth, moving at a high rate of speed over their house. On the evening of July 2 during a severe thunderstorm in the area of Roswell, New Mexico with lots of lightning, William W. “Mac” Brazel, a foreman at a sheep ranch on the Foster homestead heard what sounded to him as a loud explosion over the thunder.

  • The CoronaSite

The next morning, Mr. Brazel rode out as usual to check on his sheep, along with his old neighbor’s seven year old boy, William D. “Dee” Proctor. They came upon an area about a quarter of a mile long and several hundred feet wide that was strewn with debris, shiny bits and pieces unlike anything Mac had ever seen. He picked up some of the material and carried it with him back to the ranch headquarters, where he put it in a shed. Later that day, Brazel put a small piece of the debris in his pocket when he drove Dee Proctor to his home about ten miles away.  He showed the debris to Dee’s parents, William and Loretta Proctor, and wanted them to go back and look at the debris field with him.

The next night, Brazel went into the town of Corona, where he told his uncle, Hollis Wilson, about the debris. Wilson and another man who was present told Mac about the “flying saucers” that were being reported around the area and advised him to report his find to the authorities.  So, on July 6, when Mac was going into Roswell to see about trading for a new pick-up truck, he took some of the debris with him and stopped off at the office of Chaves County Sheriff George Wilcox. At first, Wilcox paid little attention, but when Mac showed him a piece of the debris, he realized that this might be important, so Wilcox called Roswell Army Air Force Base, which was an elite facility, and home to the only atomic bomb group in existence at the time.  He spoke with Major Jesse A. Marcel, the base intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Wing.  Marcel told Wilcox he would come into Roswell and talk to Brazel.

Meanwhile, Frank Joyce of radio station KGFL called Sheriff Wilcox looking for news, and was told about Mac Brazel’s discovery.  Joyce phoned and interviewed Mac over the phone. Major Marcel later arrived at the Sheriff’s office to question Mac and see the debris. Then Major Marcel went back to the base to make his report. He reported the incident to Colonel William H. Blanchard, the base commander, and was told to return to the site for further investigation.  Marcel took his Buick, and an Army Counter Intelligence Corps officer named Sheridan Cavitt drove a Jeep, and they followed Mac Brazel back to the ranch.

By the time they got to the ranch it was too late in the evening to go to the site, so they spent the night in an old house on the ranch. The next morning, Mac saddled two horses, and he and Cavitt  rode out to the site while Marcel followed in the Jeep. After showing them the debris field and watching for a few minutes, Mac left them to their task and went back to finish his chores.

Marcel and Cavitt were amazed to see the vast amount of area the wreckage covered.  It was scattered over three quarters of a mile long and several hundred feet wide. They said “It was definitely not a weather or tracking device, nor was it any sort of plane or missile.” Marcel said, “I don’t know what it was, but it certainly wasn’t anything built by us, and it most certainly wasn’t any weather balloon. …small beams about three eighths or a half inch square with some sort of hieroglyphics on them that nobody could decipher. These looked something like balsa wood, and about the same weight, except that they were not wood at all. They were very hard, although flexible, and would not burn at all. There was a great deal of an unusual parchment-like substance which was brown in color and extremely strong, and a great number of small pieces of a metal like tinfoil, except that it wasn’t tinfoil.

“I was interested in electronics and kept looking for something that resembled instruments or electronic equipment, but I didn’t find anything.” He did find a black, metallic looking box several inches square. As there was no apparent way to open this, and since it didn’t appear to be an instrument package of any sort, they threw it in the back of the Jeep with the rest of the stuff. Marcel said “It had little numbers with symbols that we had to call hieroglyphics because I could not understand them. They were pink and purple. They looked like they were painted on. I even took my cigarette lighter and tried to burn the material we found that resembled parchment and balsa, but it would not burn – wouldn’t even smoke. …the pieces of metal that we brought back were so thin, just like the tinfoil in a pack of cigarettes. …you could not tear or cut it either. We even tried making a dent in it with a sixteen-pound sledgehammer, and there was still no dent in it.”

Marcel and Cavitt filled the Jeep up with debris, and then Marcel sent Cavitt back to the base with it. Marcel then took his Buick out to the sight and filled it with debris as well. He later said that even the two vehicles full was just a minor portion of the debris. Marcel headed back to base, but on the way, he stopped off at his home to show the debris to his wife and son, Jesse Jr.

On July 8, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field public information office issued a press release stating that personnel from the field’s 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed “flying disc” from a ranch near Roswell, sparking intense media interest. When Marcel got back to the base, Colonel Blanchard ordered him to load the debris onto a B-29 and fly with it to Wright Field in Ohio, stopping at Carswell Army Air Force Base in Fort Worth, Texas on the way. Marcel did so, but as soon as he landed at Carswell, Brigadier General Roger Ramey, Commander of the 8th Air Force, took over. The debris was taken to Ramey’s office and spread out on brown paper. Marcel said later that one photo was taken of him with the real debris, then Ramey took him into another room, and when he came back, a weather balloon had been substituted for the debris. A weather officer, Warrant Officer Irving Newton was brought in, and he immediately identified the material he saw as a weather balloon and a Rawin-type radar target. A Rawin radar target was a reflector made of metal foil and balsa wood sticks that was attached to a weather balloon so that it could be tracked on radar. Ramey announced to the press that the “flying saucer” was only a weather balloon. After more photographs with the weather balloon, Ramey ordered Marcel back to Roswell with a strong hint to keep quiet about the incident. When Marcel got back to Roswell, he found that he had been made to look rather foolish for not recognizing the debris as a “weather balloon.”

Frank Joyce of KGFL radio had told his boss, Walt Whitmore Sr. about Mac Brazel’s find. Whitmore then drove out to the ranch to talk to Mac about the incident. Whitmore then went back to his own home in Roswell, where Mac spent the night.  Next morning, they went down to KGFL and called the base. The military came out and picked Mac up and carried him back to the base, where he was kept under guard in the “guest house” for several days.

On July 8, Mac was escorted by the military to the offices of the Roswell Daily Record, where he gave a press interview. The story he told them was a bit different from what he had told before, however. Now he said that he and his son had originally discovered the debris on June 14, but that he was in such a hurry that he ignored it. Then, on July 4, he and his wife and two of his children rode out to the site and picked up some of the debris, which consisted of smoky gray rubber strips, tinfoil, heavy paper, and some small sticks. He said that he had twice before found weather balloons on the ranch but that this material in no way resembled what he had found before.

Mac’s military escorts led him out to a car and drove him to KGFL. People who saw him leave the newspaper office said he kept his head down and pretended not to see any of his friends. At KGFL, he was allowed to go in alone while his escorts waited outside. He went in and began telling Frank Joyce the same story he had told at the Record. Joyce interrupted him and asked why he was telling a different story than he had told earlier.  Mac became agitated.  At the end of the interview, Mac went back out to where his military escort was waiting, and they took him back to the base

When released by the military, Mac refused to say anything other than that he had found a weather balloon. He privately complained of his treatment by the military, who he said wouldn’t even let him call his wife. He told his children that he had taken an oath not to talk about the incident. Within a year, he moved off the ranch and into Tularosa. There he opened a refrigerated meat locker rental establishment where people could rent lockers to keep their meat, as there were few home freezers in those days. Mac Brazel passed away in 1963.

  • San Agustin Site

A second crash site was found by Grady L. “Barney” Barnett while working in the Plains of San Agustin near Magdalena, New Mexico on July 3, 1947, when he had come upon a crashed disc-shaped object. This flying disc had alien bodies strewn about it. There were aliens inside and outside of the craft. Gerald Anderson and his family were also in the area, rock hunting on that same day, when they came upon the crashed saucer-shaped craft. The craft had four dead aliens inside. Though Gerald was only six years old at the time the extraordinary sighting was one he would never forget. Archaeologist, Dr. Buskirk, and five of his students also came upon the crash scene. Steve MacKenzie saw four bodies around the crashed UFO. He said that another one was out of sight.


Commander Major Edwin Easley of the Military Police cordoned off the crash site. Sergeant Thomas Gonzales, a guard with the 509th at the crash site, saw bodies he called “little men.” Frank Kaufman a member of the Army team witnessed a “strange looking craft embedded in a cliff.” Other members of his detachment were ordered to put debris into crates which were sent to Roswell AAFB and stored under heavy military guard.

Herbert Ellis, a painting contractor at Roswell Army Airfield Base saw an alien “walking” into the Roswell Army hospital. Ray Danzer, a plumbing contractor, was standing outside of the emergency room, when he saw alien bodies being brought into the base hospital on stretchers. Dumbfounded by the event, he was shaken back to reality by military police who warned him to leave, and forget what he saw. Joseph Montoya, Lt. Governor of New Mexico, saw “four little men” in Hangar P-3, today known as building 84. One of them was still alive. He described the beings as wearing what he described as a “flight suit, silver in color, and tight fitting.” He recalled that “the aliens had four fingers on each hand. Their fingers were long and thin. They had oversized heads, with big eyes. Their mouth was small, like a cut across a piece of wood. “I tell you they’re not from this world.”

Mary Bush, who was secretary to the base hospital administrator, was called on to assist two doctors in a hospital room where three “alien” bodies were being examined. Though suffocated by an overwhelming odor from the bodies, she clearly recalled that the aliens had four fingers, and no thumbs. They were “a creature from another world.”

Glenn Dennis was a mortician working for the Ballard Funeral Home in Roswell, which had a contract to provide mortuary services for the Roswell Army Air Field.  Mr. Dennis received a call from the base mortuary officer, asking him how to prepare bodies that had been lying out on the desert for a period of time. Being curious, he decided to go to Roswell base infirmary to see what was going on. When he arrived, the infirmary door was open and he entered.  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, which he described as resembling Egyptian hieroglyphics.

There were two Military Police officers nearby, standing guard. He recognized his friend, Naomi Marie Self, a nurse for 23 years, 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.”  Then two MPs approached him. A Captain asked who he was, and what he was doing here. The Captain then told him, “You did not see anything.  There was no crash here, and if you say anything about this at all, you could get into a lot of trouble.”  The MPs quickly escorted him out of the infirmary. They said that they had orders to follow him back to the Ballard Funeral Home.

Later that day, flight engineer Sgt. Robert Porter loaded debris into a B-29, and along with Major Marcel, flew from Roswell Air Force Base to General Ramey’s office in Ft Worth, Texas.  Marcel was to show some recovered material to Gen. Roger Ramey before proceeding on to Wright Field, Ohio. Shortly afterwards a second plane, a C-54 flown by Captain Oliver Wendell “Pappy” Henderson, a senior pilot at the Roswell air base flew from Roswell to Wright Air Fiel, Ohio, transporting the wreckage and alien bodies.  “Pappy” , who had a Top-Secret security clearance, described the alien beings as smaller than a normal man, about four feet, pale, with slanted eyes and overly large heads for their size.  They were humanoid-looking, but different from us, looking yellowish, and a bit Asian-looking. They looked nice, almost as though they would be friendly if they were alive. The aliens where wearing suits made from a material that was different from anything he had ever seen.   The bodies had been packed in dry ice in order to preserve them, and placed in a 7 x 7 foot crate.  Sgt. Robert Smith of Roswell 1st Air Transport Unit was taken to the hangar to load the crates. He said that he loaded crates on two or three C-54 aircraft, and that one of the crates took up the entire plane. “It wasn’t that heavy, but it was a large volume.”

When the planes arrived at Wright Air Field, the wreckage debris was taken to Hangar-18, along with the dead aliens who were put into a refrigeration unit in the hanger. Two members of a film unit stationed at Wright-Patterson were summoned by an officer to get their 16 mm movie cameras and follow him. The two workers were led by the officer to a heavily guarded airplane hangar, Hangar-18. Inside, they saw a badly damaged, circular craft of unknown origin. There was debris from the UFO wreckage scattered over a large area, which was placed on a huge canvas tarp. The officer instructed the two cameramen to take film of anything and everything in sight.

Upon finishing this assignment, they were taken to the very rear of the hanger to a refrigeration unit. There, they saw two storage bins which held the bodies of two, small alien creatures!  The beings were very thin, gray in color, with large eyes, but no eyelids.  One of these beings had obviously suffered bodily damage, showing signs of being burned, while the other showed no apparent signs of injury. They were about 3 1/2 foot tall, of thin build, and had grayish skin. They had large, black eyes, only a slit for a mouth, small, flat noses, and small ears. They recalled that the beings had extra-long arms with less than five digits on the hands, which were like animal claws. The feet had three stubby, webbed toes, and a ridge on the bottom of their feet. They were clad in jump suits, with zippers up the front. Their suits had an emblem resembling a bird. The photojournalists were sworn to secrecy, with the threat of the loss of their pensions and a fast discharge from the Army if they told anyone about what they saw.

Lt. Col. Marion “Black Mac” Magruder, along with a specialized team of scientists, were flown to Wright-Patterson on a “matter of utmost urgency.”  They were taken into a room, and briefed on the extraterrestrial spacecraft that had crashed two weeks before near the town of Roswell, New Mexico.  While in this room, they were given the opportunity to examine some of the crash debris from the alien ship. Then, they were taken into another room, where they saw an alien being still alive!   Magruder’s description of the alien is very similar to other reports from those who were allowed to see the beings: small, spindly, large eyes, and oversized heads. It is most often reported that the Roswell crash yielded four alien beings, three dead and one alive.  Leon B. Visse, who researched cellular genetic material, was given access to a secret room where he examined two of the alien bodies.

The live alien became known as “EBE1”, and was taken to the military base in Los Alamos, where he was kept in captivity until his death in 1952. He was a very intelligent being who picked up English very quickly from the guards and military personal around him. EBE1 never got upset or angry with his captivity, and helped many officials with their studies and their questions. The typical lifespan of EBE’s civilization is between 350 and 400 Earth years. It is thought that the conditions here on Earth, and the trauma of the crash contributed to EBE’s passing. He claimed to have come from the planet “Serpo” in the Zeta Reticuli binary star system, which has two suns providing energy to the local planets.

In 1947, Brigadier General Thomas J. Dubose was Gen. Ramey’s Chief of Staff.  In recorded interviews, Dubose said the whole Roswell matter was conducted in the strictest secrecy and even involved the White House.  In July, 1947, then-Director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover demanded that the US military give the FBI access to the “crashed discs.”  Hoover “insisted on full access to [the] discs recovered.”  He said, “The Army grabbed it, and would not let us have it for cursory examination.” In 1964, Air Force officer Brigadier General Arthur Exon was named the base commander.  General Exon continued to deny Hoover’s FBI access to the hidden, secret facilities of the base.

Senator Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona, a former Major General in the US Army Air Corp, now a senior member of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, requested entry into a special storage area at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Goldwater was told by General Curtis LeMay, Chairman of the Military Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, that he had no need to know, and was denied passage. This awakened Goldwater to the fact that the UFO situation is at the highest level of national secrecy, much higher than that of the H-Bomb, and more than anything else that is known within the Pentagon, FBI, CIA, DIA, NSA, et al.  That is, nothing has a higher security protocol than alien beings visiting and interacting with our planet. The United States Air Force knows the truth, but will it ever be revealed?

The U.S. Military, as well as top officials from other countries, fear that the acknowledgement of UFOs and aliens from other worlds, might start a panic similar to H. G. Wells’ famous radio broadcast, “The War of the Worlds.“    Broadcast on October 30, 1938 by the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), the first two thirds of the 60-minute “special newscast” was presented as a series of “news bulletins”, which suggested to the  six million listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Millions believed it to be true, and 1.2 million were, “genuinely frightened.”  Some listeners fainted, while others grabbed their families and headed into the mountains.  While UFOs actually did not provide a threat to National Security, how would the Military explain foreigners from other worlds flying UFOs freely over towns, military bases, etc. without the military being able to stop them?

There was also fear that such acknowledgement of aliens and UFOs would have a pronounced effect on the religions of the World.  How could religions explain otherworldly beings, particularly perhaps, with the notion that Man is made in the image of God?   The known aliens were humanoid, but clearly, far different from Homo Sapiens.  What panic or backlash to the Military might result?

What excited the Military most was the fact that by examining the wreckage and communicating with the aliens, reverse engineering was possible.   The Military might advance science by thousands of years, and  produce highly effective weaponry, aircraft, and who-knows-what, that the military could not even imagine. For these reasons, it was determined that all information regarding UFOs and otherworldly aliens should be denied by the United States. Special departments were set up in order to disclaim all accounts, and even deride the many people that had reported such things.  Intimidation was the name of the game, threatening those who came forward with their claims, and making them out to be crazy and mentally unstable.  Any and all photos and evidence that they might have were confiscated, never to be spoken of again.  False reports were issued in order to confuse the general public.

Such was the case of the “Roswell Incident”, which was explained as a crashed weather balloon by the military.  The case was quickly “closed”, and almost completely ignored for more than 30 years thereafter.

In 1978, physicist Stanton T. Friedman interviewed Major Jesse Marcel, who was involved with the original recovery of the debris in 1947. Marcel expressed his belief that the military had covered up the retrieval of the alien spacecraft. His story spread throughout the nation, bringing worldwide attention to the “Roswell incident”.  People have to ask themselves if the “Roswell incident”, with its associated aliens and UFOs, are just imaginary or real.  Consider that over 500 eyewitnesses who had been involved in the “Roswell Incident” have provided documentation of their experiences.  Many have come forward and spoken on the matter just before their death, or toward the end of their lives, when Government threats were no longer effective.  These include the witnesses at both crash sites, the first responders to the incident, military people in charge, scientists including Joseph Montoyathen-Lt. Governor of New Mexico.  Military Police at Roswell, nurses involved with the examination of the aliens, people transferring the UFO/alien debris to the planes in Roswell and Wright Air Field, the film crew at Wright Air Field, and so on. Cover-ups by the military on the “Roswell Incident”, as well as all other UFO and aliens, continue to this day.

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover UFO Memo’s

The following documents were released through the 1977 Freedom of Information Act and can be viewed on the FBI Vault – online searchable document retrieval for researchers and media.


FBI Special Agent Percy Wyly Telex to J. Edgar Hoover July 8, 1947

On July 8 1947,  FBI Special Agent Percy Wyly sent a Telex message marked “Urgent. ” to J. Edgar Hoover  and to the Special Agent in Charge in Cincinnati.  In summary, Hoover is informed that the “disc and balloon” were “being transported by special plane for examination” to Wright Field. The debris was reported to have resembled “a high altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector – but that “telephonic conversation had not borne out that belief.” The teletype indicates that the results of the study of the Roswell crash debris would be forwarded to the FBI’s Cincinnati office and to Director Hoover. But, no documents have ever surfaced to indicate that this ever happened.



Agent Wyly was conveying information that had been provided to him by Major Edwin M. Kirton of the Army Air Force Intelligence of the 8th Army Air Force at Ft. Worth, Texas. Kirton was one of General Roger Ramey’s key officers. Publicly Kirton debunked the incident, telling the Dallas Morning News that the Roswell crash was of a weather balloon while telling Wyly that it was not.


FBI Agent D.M. Ladd memo to J. Edgar Hoover July 10, 1947

FBI Agent D.M. Ladd indicated to Hoover that on July 9 1947, Brigadier General George Schulgen of Pentagon Intelligence personally discussed with a Special Agent of the FBI the possibility of assistance from the FBI in investigating the flying disc phenomena. Ladd indicates to Hoover that he did not believe that the Bureau should offer such assistance because the majority of “alleged discs reported found have been pranks.”


Clyde Tolson, Associate Director of the FBI, received Ladd’s memo, read and considered it, and annotated on it his disagreement with Ladd, saying: “I think we should do this” – meaning that he believes that the Bureau should consider investigating with the Pentagon. Hoover qualifies his agreement with Tolson, but cautions him in a handwritten notation:

“I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination.”


The “La” is presumed signifying Louisiana referring to a Shreveport Louisiana incident occurring on July 7 that turned out to be a hoax.


Tolson and Hoover no doubt continued their dialog privately on the crashed saucer matter: Should they pursue this investigation on their own – or should they cooperate with the Pentagon? The two ultimately decided not to move forward in working with the military on the matter.


Hoover Memo to General McDonald, Sept 27 1947

On September 27 1947, Hoover wrote to the Pentagon a letter informing them that he was discontinuing any FBI agent investigation of crashed discs. He characterized such crashes as those of “ash cans, toilet seats and what not.” He would defer any such investigations of that type to the Air Force. His attitude in his rebuking reply to the military is almost smarmy. It is as if he knew that they were trying to “play” him and that they have not given him “full access.”


Hoover simply did not trust the military and did not wish to work with them. He knew that he had not been given the “real deal” on the crash at Roswell. His agent Percy Wyly relayed that Hoover would be getting the crash debris results. But there appears Hoover never received anything back from the Air Force.  Hover was left to rely only on press reports of the crash and on his agent Wyly’s precious few bits of information that were obtained from Ramey’s, Major Kirton. Hoover did in fact maintain interest in the crashed disc matters despite what he told the Pentagon. And his closest agents were informing him on crashed saucer stories.


FBI Agent Guy Hottel memo to Hoover, March 22 1950

FBI Agent Guy Hottel explains to Hoover that “an Air Force investigator” source had informed him that three flying discs had prior been recovered in New Mexico. The source indicates that this may have been due to the effect of radar on the craft. Each disc had three occupants that were three feet tall. Seeking the Director’s guidance, Hottel indicates that he has not taken any further action on the matter.


The three disks mentioned recovered in New Mexico were probably the two from the Roswell crash sites Corona, San Agustin, and the Aztec 1948 UFO crash site.


Hoover had told the military back in September of 1947 that he did not want to participate with the Pentagon in investigating such crash cases. But here we are three years on and we see that Hoover is receiving details on just such events. Hoover had lied to the Pentagon. Though he had told the Pentagon that he wanted no part of it – what Hoover had really meant was that he did not want any part of working with the military on such UFO crash matters. He did not trust them. He wanted to work only with people that he could trust on this, his own people


Hoover trusted on such investigations his long-time friends and co-workers Special Agent Guy Hottel and FBI Associate Director Clyde Tolson:


Tolson (who had agreed with Hoover that they should investigate crashed discs) was Hoover’s #2 for decades, and the person with whom he shared living quarters.


Guy Hottel (the author of the 1950 crashed disc memo) was one of Hoover’s favored agents and acted as Hoover’s personal bodyguard. Hoover had entrusted Guy to perform some of the most discreet investigations the agency had ever conducted. This is because as early as the 1930s the three of them – Hottel, Hoover and Tolson – would do things such as going to Miami and staying together at hotels to gamble and socialize. Tolson and Hottel had even roomed together in the 1920s at college.



Chapter 3

The UFO Conspiracy

The Extraterrestrial Accord

UFO conspiracy theories argue that various governments and politicians globally, most especially the officials of Washington, D.C., are suppressing evidence of extraterrestrial unidentified flying objects and alien visitors. Such conspiracy theories commonly argue that Earth governments, especially the Government of the United States, are in communication or cooperation with extraterrestrials despite public claims to the contrary, and further, that some governments are explicitly allowing alien abduction. In the aftermath of the 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast, the Government was afraid of the potential public reaction to confirmed evidence of UFOs.


The UFO conspiracy theories began when a group had established communication with the aliens in 1952.  In an exhibition of force, a series of unidentified flying objects flew over the U.S. Capital in Washington D.C. on July 12 to July 29, 1952.   President Harry S. Truman passed the office of The President of the United States onto Dwight. D. Eisenhower on January 19, 1953.  Truman gave Eisenhower a hefty file concerning top-secret, top classified files about a project called “Majestic 12.”  A meeting with the aliens was proposed by the military, knowing that in the event of a conflict, whoever controlled the air would win, but our aircraft was no match to the aliens’ UFOs.  The U.S. wanted to know what the aliens were up to.  Eisenhower rejected a face-to-face meeting with the aliens at first, but a year of ultra-secret negotiations with government officials ensued, and he learned that the aliens, “came in peace”.   A meeting between the aliens and Eisenhower was scheduled on February 21, 1954 at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Eisenhower felt that if the public knew of the meeting, it might produce fear and unrest.  He decided to spend several days in Palm Springs on Vacation. Then on Saturday afternoon, he disappeared, going to Edwards Air Force Base for the day.  His White House Press Secretary, James Haggert informed the media that Eisenhower had chipped a tooth while eating fried chicken, and that the president had visited a dentist for repair.  Eisenhower returned to Palm Springs the following morning.

According to William Cooper, a Naval Intelligence briefing team member with total access to classified documents, Eisenhower had arrived at Edwards Air Force Base to the bewilderment, and panic among the officials present.  They were met by two humanoid aliens that came from the Pleiades star cluster, and resembled Nordic “Scandinavians.”  The ETs were about six feet tall with long blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. They became known as the “Pleiadian Aliens”.  With the assistance and permission of the Pleiadians, Air Force officials were allowed to study and handle five separate and distinct types of aircraft.  Discussions were held between the ETs and Eisenhower in a polite manner, but no agreements were reached. The Aliens supposedly wanted humans to stop nuclear testing, but Eisenhower didn’t want to give it up.  There was uncertainty about how to respond to the aliens, and to fears that due to the Cold War, the aliens could turn to the Soviets if the Americans spurned them.

Seven different types of aliens were known. The most common type is known as the” Greys”. There are two different types of Greys. The first seem to be the leaders and the more intelligent of the two. They are approximately 5 to 8 feet tall, with large heads, large dark eyes, long skinny fingers arms and legs, have a small mouth, small ear holes, and have been reported to have 2 small nostrils. They are hairless and seem to communicate through some kind of telepathy with each other as well as humans. The second are worker Greys. They are much smaller than the other Greys at around 3½ to 4½ feet tall, stubbier fingers arms and legs, but are similar to the larger Greys, same shaped head, eyes, ear holes, and small holes for nostrils. They don’t seem to be as intelligent as the taller Greys.

The Air Force and Majestic Twelve  a secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, formed in 1947 by an executive order by U.S. President Harry S. Truman to facilitate recovery and investigation of alien spacecraft. were more familiar with the Greys in that Seventy-three percent of all reported alien encounters in the United States describe Grey aliens, The Greys come from the Zeta Reticuli binary star system, which is visible in the Southern Hemisphere, and approximately 38 light years away from Earth. They were the occupants of the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.

An autopsy of one of the Roswell crash victims was performed.  In 1995, filmmaker Ray Santilli claimed to have obtained 22 reels of 16 mm film that depicted the autopsy of a Roswell Grey. However, in 2006 Santilli announced that the film was not the original, but was instead a “reconstruction” created after the original film was found to have degraded. Film emulsions in those days were highly toxic and posed a fire hazard.  He maintained that the footage released to the public contained only a small percentage of the original footage.

Upon examination, it was determined that Greys have a genetic disorder in their digestive system, where it is atrophied and dysfunctional There is an indication that they suffer from unknown doses of nuclear radiation that had damaged the genetic makeup of their DNA. They sustain themselves by using an enzyme or hormonal secretion obtained from the tongues and throats of cows or humans. The secretion, extracted from cow’s blood, is mixed with other substances that are applied directly onto Grey skin, which absorbs the mixture, then excretes the waste back out from the epidermal.

The Greys are probably the most known alien species because of the publicity from the Roswell crash of 1947 and their abductions of humans.  Such were the cases of Barney and Betty Hill in 1961, and with the Travis Walton abduction in 1975.  Greys abduct humans in order to perform experiments with the human body. Many abductees have reported having male sperm taken from them as well as eggs from women.   The smaller Greys don’t seem to be as intelligent as the taller Greys and do much of the grunt work during probing, while the taller Greys perform more detailed science in areas like collecting sperm and egg samples, and genetic materials.  After the experiments, they release and return the people back to where they were abducted.  It is believed that the Greys are trying to fill the gaps of their damaged DNA with healthy human DNA.

Negotiations continued with the aliens for about a year after the Edwards Air Force Base meeting of February 21, 1954. The Greys took advantage of the failure of the first meeting by offering more favorable terms. The Pleiadian aliens claimed that the Grey aliens were not trustworthy, but President Eisenhower did not want to stop nuclear testing and desired to obtain alien technology for military purposes.  Eisenhower decided to have a secret second meeting with the aliens, to be held at Holloman AFB in New Mexico in February of 1955, located some 120 miles from the famous Roswell alien crash, but this time with the Grey aliens, not the Pleiadian aliens.

Eisenhower’s Lockheed Constellation landed at Holloman AFB with about twenty people on board, including secret service men and a small crew. The presidential airplane taxied and stopped at about a half mile away from the base tower. The civilians and military personnel on the base had been told that while the president was here, this would be a “business as usual” day. Right after the plane landed, the radar officers were given instructions to shut off all radar equipment. Minutes later, a ground patrol reported two unidentified flying objects approaching. The tower received another report, a third UFO spotted behind the first two. The UFOs approached the president’s plane, sitting alone on the runway. The first two flying saucers hovered about 300 feet over Eisenhower’s plane, and one descended on the far side of the airplane and touched down about 200 feet in front of it. The other object hovered over buildings with a good vantage point of anything that might come towards the plane and the other ship. The disc on the ground opened a hatch, and a small ramp was extended. Eisenhower descended the staircase of his plane and walked in the direction of the object on the ground. He paused for a short moment at the bottom of the ramp.  It appeared that he was shaking hands with another individual, but the distance from observers would not allow a description. The president entered the spacecraft.  One can imagine the tension that the Officials, Secret Service, and base personnel felt.  President Eisenhower emerged from the spacecraft after about 45 minutes and returned to his Lockheed Constellation.

According to witnesses and researchers, they discussed the Greada Treaty, which was signed by the both the President and the alien race known as Greys.  Later, other races got together on the Greada Treaty, Tall Whites, Reptilians, and the Anunnaki.  In the 1954 alleged Greada Treaty, the Eisenhower administration bypassed the U.S. Constitution, and formed a pact with the aliens. At first, the aliens apparently wanted the public to be told the truth about their existence.  In the final treaty, they seemingly had changed their minds and wanted to remain secret.

The 1954 Greada Treaty states:

1) We would not be involved in their affairs and they would not become involved in ours.

2) They would help us with developing our technology.

3) They would not make a treaty with any other nation on Earth.

4) The aliens could abduct humans and livestock on a limited basis for medical examination and monitoring; The people subjected to these experiences would not be harmed, and would be returned to their point of abduction with no recollection of the event.  They had to provide the names of all those they had abducted to Earth’s Majestic 12 committee.

5) The public would not be informed about the existence of aliens.

6) The U.S. could also do medical examinations and genetic experimentation on the aliens, and they would share information with us.

7) The aliens would be granted secret facilities for their accommodations and experiments.

On March 5, 2013, an unnamed CIA agent known as “Agent Kewper” gave a deathbed confession in which he states that he worked on “Project Bluebook”, investigations that could not be explained or rebuked by the CIA.   These agents may have been what is now referred to as the “Men in Black”.  In 1958, Kewper’s  boss, the Director of CIA Operations for Eastern United States, told him he had a new assignment, and wanted the agent to accompany him to the White house, as they were requested by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.  In the presence of Vice President Richard Nixon, President Eisenhower said that he was at odds with the Majestic-12, who hadn’t reported back to him on the aliens that were housed at Area 51, the ultra-secret facility east of the Nevada Test Site.   Eisenhower said that he had phoned the people from Majestic-12, meeting at S4 in Area 51, and was told that they Government had no jurisdiction over their activities.

He told the two CIA agents to go the S4, and tell them that they had one week in which to report back to Eisenhower on what they were doing.  If they refused to provide information, Eisenhower would invade the base using elements of the First Army who were stationed in Colorado, and take over the facility.  He did not care what type of classified material they had.

The two agents went to Area 51 where they were taken to S4. They said that they were shown multiple UFOs, each kept in a unit which had a garage door on it. The first door was opened to reveal the Roswell crash wreckage. It was badly damaged and looked as if it was heavy aluminum foil but weighed about 150 to 300 pounds and was easy to rock back and forth.  They were told that all aliens from Roswell crash were dead except for two. Later, they were shown an autopsy film of one of the aliens.   After the film, they were taken into a room where they saw a live “Grey Alien”, and the Director was allowed a partial interview the alien. The Alien looked a little like an “Oriental.”   It did not look human because of his skin tone and the shape and size of his head.  His brain was big, his nose small, ears like holes, and the mouth was very small.

The two CIA agents returned to Washington D. C. and met with President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, and the FBI Director Hoover.  They met on the second floor of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) warehouse building. The agents told the group about their findings, about the black projects, and the interview with the live alien.  President Eisenhower, not aware of the live alien at Area 51, was very concerned.

Through the years, there have been more reports of UFO landings at Holloman Air Force base.  On April 24, 1964, three UFOs flew into Holloman. They were tracked on radar and actually captured on film.  One of the craft seemed to wobble, and eventually landed.  Three humanoids with blue-gray complexions, and dressed in tight-fitting flight suits, were met by the base commander and four other officers. The aliens stayed for several days while their aircraft was being repaired. What was discussed in the meetings is still a mystery.  It is also a mystery as to why so many people were involved in the meetings and, to date, so few people have broken their silence.

In 1973, Robert Emenegger and Alan Sandler, two well-connected Los Angeles businessmen, were invited to Norton Air Force Base in California to discuss a possible documentary film on advanced research projects.   Two military officials, one the base’s head of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the other, audio-visual director Paul Shartle, discussed a film on UFOs.  Emenegger and Sandler were told of a 16 mm film taken at Holloman AFB, New Mexico, on May 1971, showing “three disc-shaped craft.”  One of the craft landed, and two of them went away.

A door opened on the landed vehicle and three beings emerged, Shartle said.  They were human-size, had an odd grayish complexion, and a pronounced nose. They wore tight fitting jump suits, and thin headdresses that appeared to be communication devices, and in their hands they held a ‘translator’.  The Holloman base commander and other Air Force officers went out to meet them.  Emenegger was led to believe he would be given the film for use in his documentary. He was even shown the landing site and the building in which the spaceship had been stored, and there were others (Buildings 383 and 1382).   Meetings between Air Force personnel and the aliens had been conducted over the next several days.

Actual Photo frame from Holloman Film

According to sources, the landing had taken place at 6 a.m.  The extraterrestrials were “doctors and professional types.”  Their eyes had vertical slits like a cat’s, and their mouths were thin and slit-like, with no chins.”  Emenegger was told that he would be given 3200 feet of film taken of the landing.  At the last minute, however, permission was withdrawn, although Emenegger and Sandler were encouraged to describe the Holloman episode as something hypothetical, something that could happen or might happen in the future.  A documentary narrated by the legendary Rod Serling, “UFOs: Past, Present and Future,” was produced in 1974. It has a segment on UFO landings at Holloman AFB and the 1955 meeting with Eisenhower. The documentary was nominated for a Golden Globe award as the best documentary of the year.  A later documentary, released in 1976, “UFOS: It Has Begun,” also referenced Holloman AFB and the landings that have occurred there.

Majestic-12 and Special Projects

In July, 1947, General George C. Marshall formed a group to study the Roswell-Magdalena UFO crash recovery and debris.  They had complete control of the “Flying Saucer Program” and were able to hide all physical evidence from the event.  Within 6 months of the Roswell crash, on July 2, 1947, and the retrieval of another crashed UFO at San Augustine Flats near Magdalena, New Mexico on July 3, 1947, a great deal of reorganization of agencies took place.  The reason for this was to analyze, and attempt the duplication of the UFO technologies.


The 1747 activities consisted of the following groups: The Research and Development Board; Air Force Research and Development; the Office of Naval Research; the CIA Office of Scientific Intelligence; and Office of Scientific Intelligence.  No single one of these groups knew the whole story, only the parts that they were allowed to know (“Compartmentalized Security”).   In July 26, 1947 Congress approved the National Security Act of 1947 and President Harry S. Truman signed it, thereby authorizing the CIA and its first Director, Rear Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter.

On September 24, 1947 President Truman authorized secretary of Defense James Forrestal to form the Top Secret operation known as the Majestic-12 (MJ-12).  The purpose of the group was to determine how to handle the implications of the Roswell incident, and the existence of extraterrestrial beings.  It was responsible for every aspect of the interface with the alien life forms, including security and intelligence, as well as disseminating disinformation to the general public and foreign entities in regard to the alien presence.

MJ-12 consisted of 12 scholars chosen from a group of 32 members known as the Jason Society. The actual cost of funding the project was very high, and the money mostly came from the world’s illegal drug trade. This was done to hide the funding sources, and thus keep the secret from Congress, the people of the United States, and later even the U.S. President.

The MJ-12 group was located in Maryland, on land donated by the Rockefeller family, and is only accessible by air.  It is code named “The Country Club”.  Its original members were:


  • Dr. Lloyd V. Berkener – Explorer and scientist, he headed a group that later became the Weapons Systems Evaluation Group. He was also a member of a CIA panel that determined that UFOs did not constitute a threat to U.S. national security. Berkener was the executive director at Carnegie Institute, and was a member of the Joint Research and Development Board in 1946.


  • Dr. Detlev Bronk – Physiologist, aviation expert, and prominent member of the National Academy of Science, he served as president of both Johns Hopkins and Rockefeller Universities. He was chairman of the Nuclear Research Committee and the medical advisor for the Atomic Energy Commission. Bronk also served on the Scientific Advisory Committee of Brookhaven National Laboratory where he worked with Dr. Edward Condon (who completed a major UFO study for the Air Force).


  • Dr. Vannevar Bush – A leader in research and development at Massachusetts Institute of Technology  and Carnegie Institute, he was at one time the head of each of the following: Office of Scientific Research and Development, the Joint Research and Development Board, and the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics. The Office of Scientific Research and Development was responsible for the development of the atomic bomb. Bush also put together the National Defense Research Council in 1941.
  • James Forrestal – Forrestal was undersecretary of the Navy, then secretary of the Navy. He became the first secretary of Defense in 1947, during the time of the Roswell crash. He died in 1949, under very mysterious circumstances.   More about this later in the chapter.


  • Gordon Gray – Secretary of the Army, he later held several high security positions under Presidents Truman and Eisenhower. He was also a consultant on UFOs and reported directly to CIA Director Walter B. Smith.


  • Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter – He was the first director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).  Later he was chosen a member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). He publicly stated that “UFOs are [a] real concern, but through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” He charged that, “To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel” through the issuance of stiff regulations.


  • Dr. Jerome Hunsaker  – Head of the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics; chairman of the Departments of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at MIT.


  • Dr. Donald Menzel  – Director of the Harvard College Observatory and an expert in cryptanalysis, the science of breaking codes and deciphering unknown languages and symbols. Menzel was involved in very high-level intelligence operations during and after World War II.


  • General Robert M. Montegue – Head of the Armed Forces Special Weapons Center, he was also an Army general at Fort Bliss and as such had control over the White Sands Nuclear Research facility and the Sandia Atomic Energy Commission facility at Albuquerque, New Mexico during the time of the saucer crash at Roswell.


  • Admiral Sidney Souers – Souers was the first Director of Central Intelligence, the precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency. He was also a member of the National Security Council and a special consultant for military intelligence operations.
  • General Nathan Twining – Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, Twining was also the commander of the Air Materiel Command based at Wright-Patterson Air base, where the debris and bodies from the Roswell crash were taken. Twining was known to have cancelled a scheduled trip on July 8, 1947, just days after the crash at Roswell and the same day Roswell Army Air Base sent out a press release stating that a flying saucer had been recovered. In a now-famous memo, Twining stated that UFOs were very real.


  • General Hoyt Vandenberg – Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force and former Director of Central Intelligence, he was allegedly in charge of security for the MJ-12 group. Vandenberg Air Force base in California, which has become a major rocket launch site, is named for him.


In 1954 President Eisenhower, by Secret Executive Order, “Order Number 54-12changed the MJ-12 Committee (operating under the National Security Council) was renamed the “54-12 Committee” with the President of The United States having responsibility to approve all covert projects.  Today it is known as the “40 Committee” which has access to advanced technology and to teams conducting cover-up operations.  In the past, this committee was headed by Dr. Henry Kissinger, using the code name “The Overseer”.

OPERATION MAJORITY is the name of the operation responsible for every aspect, project, and all consequences of alien presence on Earth. MAJESTY was listed as the code name for the President of the United States for communications concerning this information.

In 1947, PROJECT SIGN was created to acquire as much information as possible about UFOs, their performance characteristics and their purposes. In order to preserve security, liaison between SIGN and MJ-12 was limited to two individuals within the intelligence division of the Air Materiel Command, whose role was to pass along certain types of information through proper channels.  SIGN evolved into PROJECT GRUDGE in December of 1948.  GRUDGE had an overt civilian counterpart named PROJECT BLUE BOOK.  Only “Safe” reports were passed to BLUE BOOK.

GRUDGE was funded by the CIA using funding from confidential, non-appropriated sources, in addition to money from the illicit drug trade. The purpose of GRUDGE was to collect all scientific, technological, medical and intelligence information from UFO and Identified alien craft sightings, as well as contact with alien life forms. This information was saved in 16 volumes of files, and has been used to advance the United States Air Force Space Program.

BLUE BOOK was a U.S. Air Force collection and disinformation project relating to UFOs and alien intelligence. This project was terminated, and its collected information and duties were absorbed by PROJECT AQUARIUS. A classified report named “Grudge/Blue Book, Report Number 13” is the only significant information derived from the project and is unavailable to the public.

PROJECT POUNCE was formed to recover all crashed UFOs and alien beings.  POUNCE provided cover stories and operations to mask the true endeavor, whenever necessary.  Cover stories which have been used, were: crashed experimental aircraft, construction, mining, etc. This project has been successful and is ongoing today.

The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) function is to manage the development and operation of the nation’s reconnaissance satellite and overhead platforms, and provides security for all Majority Agency for Joint Intelligence (MAJI) projects.  It consists of a security team and task force especially trained to provide alien-tasked projects.  MAJI, also known as the “Men in Black” (MIB, are men who dress in dark suits, wearing sunglasses, who claim to be government agents.  They typically harass or threaten UFO witnesses in order to silence them about what they have experienced. They are usually men of short stature with deeply tanned complexions, driving large late model cars, but also use unmarked black helicopters.  MIB always have detailed information on the persons they contact. They will claim to be from an agency collecting information on the unexplained phenomenon their subjects had encountered.  Men in Black will claim to be from the U.S. Air Force or the CIA and flash convincing-looking badges and demand that the witness recant their story or hand over photographs or physical evidence of a UFO. If the witness refuses or questions their credentials, they will subtly or overtly threaten the witness or their family with bodily harm or other hardships. If a person tries to verify their badges or credentials they will find either they do not exist or have been dead for some time. This is an ongoing project that operates today.

All information, disinformation, and intelligence is gathered and evaluated through MAJI. It operates in conjunction with the CIA, NSA, DIA, and the Office of Naval Intelligence. This is a very powerful organization, and all U.S. alien projects are under its control.  MAJI is responsible only to the 40 Committee.

While all the above is well documented, the official response from the United States Government is that the documents are counterfeit and that there is no “E.O. 54-12” or alien UFO projects. If this is the case, it would only make sense because of the plethora of “Roswell Incident” documentation with the assertion that alien and UFOs do exist.

Extraterrestrial Recovery and Disposal Manual

The following passage from an ‘alleged official document’ leaked to UFO researchers describes the official secrecy policy adopted in April 1954.


Any encounter with entities known to be of extraterrestrial origin is to be considered to be a matter of national security and therefore classified TOP SECRET. Under no circumstances is the general public or the public press to learn of the existence of these entities. The official government policy is that such creatures do not exist, and that no agency of the federal government is now engaged in any study of extraterrestrials or their artifacts. Any deviation from this stated policy is absolutely forbidden.


In December 1953, the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued Army-Navy-Air Force publication 146 that made the unauthorized release of information concerning UFOs a crime under the Espionage Act, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.


James Vincent Forrestal and the Majestic Twelve

James Forrestal, a former highly respected Secretary of the Navy, had shown no signs of mental instability the day of his crucial meeting with Truman in the Oval Office on 24 September 1947. In the wake of the Roswell recoveries, a panel of 16 military and civilian appointees recommended the creation of a “Fully funded and operational Top Secret Research and Development intelligence gathering agency” called Majestic Twelve (MJ-12). This recommendation was approved at the meeting with Forrestal in the Oval Office.  Truman issued a memorandum on the same date (which leaked in 1983) instructing Forrestal to begin funding and organizing the MJ-12 initiative.


In early 1948, in the same month as the Aztec, New Mexico, UFO crash retrieval incident, aides began to notice that Mr. Forrestal was developing a range of nervous mannerisms. His mind drifted elsewhere during meetings and he lost the narrative. He began to believe he was being followed and his home phone wire-tapped. Not only Forrestal, but also his right hand man, Vannevar Bush, began to have mental problems as well. The problems seemed to begin around the time of the Aztec crash where a disabled craft was found on an isolated plateau 12 miles from the small New Mexico town in March 1948.  Bush supervised the alien craft retrieval on site with a large group of scientists that he had hand-picked for the highly secret operation. Bush developed headaches and trembling.  He thought he had Parkinson’s disease.  He suffered from sleepless nights and underwent numerous medical tests.  In the end, unlike Forrestal, he appears to have made a complete recovery and, by all accounts, was involved in the MJ-12 reverse-engineering program well into the 1950s.

Today we know from the Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England Incident of December 26-28, 1980 the injuries to Forrestal and Vannevar Bush were caused from “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Radiation” (UAP).   UAP is caused from being within close proximity to a UFO craft.  Both James Penniston and John Burroughs, Air Force police officers at the Royal Air Force Bentwaters Base investigating the UFO incident suffered from the same type of radiation.  In 2006, the United Kingdom declassified an intelligence study on UFOs (PROJECT CONDIGN – classified as Secret UK Eyes Only) which stated that the Bentwaters UFOs to be real, and have UAP radiation effects.

When UFOs are operating, they emit a certain electromagnetic field that is known to cause UAP radiation.  Other than biological effects, the neurological effects may be the clue to solve some human behavior after exposure to alien spacecraft. Unlike other parts of the brain, the temporal cortex can be tendered electrically unstable.  It is clear that the recipients of these effects are not aware that their behavior/perception of what they are observing is being modified.  Little is understood about UAP radiation, but since 1986, much research is being conducted by the military, sadly, in order to produce microwave weapons.  It is important to note that the effect of UAP radiation on humans takes very little time to manifest.

At around 2 a.m. on the morning of May 22, 1949, America’s first Secretary of Defense, James Vincent Forrestal, fell to his death from a small window of the 16th floor of the Bethesda Naval Hospital.

There is no question that Forrestal suffered from a mental breakdown during 1948 and 1949. Throughout the autumn and winter of 1948, Forrestal’s mental health, physical condition, and effectiveness as Secretary of Defense deteriorated. Friends commented on his growing paranoia. He was convinced that “foreign-looking men” were following him.  Forrestal’s condition eventually came to the attention of Truman and Secret Service Chief U. E. Baughman, who decided that Forrestal was suffering from “a total psychotic breakdown.”  On January 11th, 1949, Truman informed Forrestal that Louis Johnson would soon replace him as Secretary of Defense. Forrestal finally left office in a formal ceremony on March 28th, his last public appearance.

What followed after the ceremony adds to the mystery.  Air Force Secretary Stuart Symington told Forrestal, “There is something I would like to talk to you about,”  and accompanied him privately during the ride back to the Pentagon.  What Symington said is not known, but Forrestal emerged from the ride deeply upset, even traumatized.  Friends of Forrestal implied that Symington said something that “shattered Forrestal’s last remaining defenses.” When someone entered Forrestal’s office several hours later, the former Secretary of Defense did not notice. Instead, he sat rigidly at his desk, staring at the bare wall, incoherent, repeating the sentence, “you are a loyal fellow,” for several hours.

Forrestal was taken home, but within a day, the Air Force flew him to Hobe Sound, Florida, home of Robert Lovett (a future Secretary of Defense). Forrestal’s first words were “Bob, they’re after me.” He met with Dr. William Menninger, of the Menninger Foundation, and a consultant to the Surgeon General of the Army.  Captain George N. Raines, chief psychologist at the U.S. Naval Hospital at Bethesda, soon arrived.  He stated that upon his arrival, Forrestal told him that the day before, “He had placed a belt around his neck with the intention of hanging himself, but the belt broke.”  Menninger found no marks on Forrestal’s neck or body, nor did anyone find broken belts of any kind. Menninger considered Forrestal’s claim to be a nightmare. That’s about all we can know for sure.

On April 2, 1949, Forrestal’s coterie flew him to Bethesda, “for security reasons,” During the trip from the Air Field to the hospital, Forrestal made several attempts to leave the moving vehicle, and was forcibly restrained.  He talked of suicide, of being a bad Catholic, and several times about those “who are trying to get me.” He was admitted to Bethesda Naval Hospital under the care of Raines, who had diagnosed Forrestal’s illness as “complicated.”  Melancholia, which is a depressive condition sometimes seen in people reaching middle age, often who saw their life as a failure, was also identified. Upon arrival at Bethesda, Forrestal declared that he did not expect to leave the place alive. In a highly unusual decision for a suicidal patient, Forrestal’s doctor was instructed by “the people downtown” (National Security?) to place him in the VIP 16th floor suite.

Throughout Forrestal’s hospitalization, access to him was severely restricted.  One-time visitors were his wife, his two sons, Sidney Souers (a former DCI, NSC Executive Secretary and MJ-12 member), Louis Johnson, Truman, and Congressman Lyndon Johnson.  Menninger visited twice. Although Forrestal was presumably glad to see his sons, he was not close to any of these visitors, and had a political antipathy to his government colleagues who came by. However, Forrestal was not permitted to see the several people he continually asked to see:  his brother Henry, a friend, and two priests.  Henry Forrestal, for example, repeatedly tried to see his brother but was refused until he threatened to tell the newspapers and sue the hospital. Ultimately, he was able to visit his brother four times. Henry told Raines and the hospital’s commandant, Captain B. W. Hogan, that his brother wanted to talk with a close friend, Monsignor Maurice Sheehy. Hogan replied that he was aware of this, but still would not allow the visitation.  Indeed, Sheehy had tried seven times to see Forrestal.  Each time, he was told that his timing was “not opportune.”  (What kind of hospital policy denies a patient the right to see a priest, minister, or rabbi?)  Sheehan, a former Navy chaplain, argued several times with Raines, and had the impression that Raines was acting under orders.  Another priest, Father Paul McNally of Georgetown University, was also barred from seeing Forrestal, as was at least one other (unnamed) friend of the former Secretary.

By May, Forrestal’s condition seemed to be improving.  When Henry finally got to see him, he thought his brother was “acting and talking as sanely and intelligently as any man I’ve ever known.”  On May 14, 1949, Raines decided that he would leave Washington in four days to attend a meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. After their last meeting on the morning of the 18th, Raines wrote that Forrestal was “somewhat better than on the corresponding day of the preceding week.”  Forrestal continued in good spirits throughout all of the 20th and 21st. He showed no signs of depression, was well dressed, shaved, and in good appetite.

But the more Henry Forrestal thought about his brother being shut up at Bethesda and denied the right to see Father Sheehy, the more it bothered him.  He decided he was going to take his brother to the countryside to complete his recovery, and made train reservations to return to Washington on May 22. He also reserved a room at the Mayflower Hotel for that day, then phoned the hospital to announce that he would arrive on May 22 to take his brother.  He was too late.

The official account of Forrestal’s death runs as follows: During the night of May 21/22, Forrestal was awake at 1:45 a.m., copying a chorus from Sophocles’ Ajax from a book of world literature. (The New York Times added that Forrestal had been asleep at 1:30, then awake at 1:45.)  A Navy corpsman named Robert Wayne Harrison, Jr., responsible for guarding Forrestal’s room, checked in, as was his job every fifteen minutes. Forrestal told Harrison that he did not want a sedative, as he intended to stay up late and read.  Harrison reported Forrestal’s refusal to the psychiatrist – Raines’ assistant, Dr. Robert Deen – sleeping next door.  They returned five minutes later to an empty room.  Deen later claimed that Forrestal had sent Harrison out on a “brief errand.” During this time, Forrestal walked to the diet kitchen across the hall, tied one end of his bathrobe cord to the radiator, the other end around his neck, removed a flimsy screen, and jumped from the 16th floor.  The cord came untied, and he fell to his death after hitting part of the building on the way down.

Some believed Forrestal’s death to be “very much desired by individuals and groups who, in 1949, held great power in the United States.”  Others went further, and maintained that Forrestal was murdered.  Henry Forrestal, for one, believed strongly that “they” murdered his brother.

Father Sheehy had reason to suspect murder. When he arrived at Bethesda Naval Hospital after learning of Forrestal’s death, an experienced-looking hospital corpsman approached him through the crowd.  In a low, tense voice he said, “Father, you know Mr. Forrestal didn’t kill himself, don’t you?”  Before Sheehy could respond or ask his name, others in the crowd pressed close, and the corpsman quickly departed.

There are several odd elements concerning Forrestal’s final moments. First, the young corpsman guarding Forrestal, Harrison, was a new man, someone Forrestal had never seen before. The regular guard during the midnight shift was absent without leave and, the story goes, had gotten drunk the night before. Harrison was the only person to have had direct contact with Forrestal in the moments before his death, and ultimately it was on his word only that the official account rested.

Also, Forrestal never finished writing the chorus from Sophocles, and in fact stopped in the middle of a word. Quite possibly, Forrestal had not even written the fragment that evening, especially if he had been asleep at 1:30 a.m. How reasonable is it to suppose that, sometime between 1:30 a.m. and 1:45 a.m., he woke up, got out some writing material, located a bleak poem within a huge anthology, copied 17 lines, put on his robe, crossed the hall to the kitchen, then tightly wrapped and knotted his bathrobe cord around his neck and presumably tied the loose end to the radiator under the window; then climbed up on the window sill and jumped.

There is an odd juxtaposition of a tightly knotted bathrobe cord around Forrestal’s neck and the assumption that he tied the other end so loosely to a radiator that it immediately came untied and allowed him to fall to his death. This radiator was a rather improbable gallows: it was about two feet long, the top was six inches below the sill, and it was attached to the wall with its base a good fifteen inches above the floor.  There was no evidence that the bathrobe cord had ever been tied to the small radiator in the first place. If the cord had snapped under Forrestal’s weight, one end would have been found still fastened to the radiator. The cord did not break, however, and there was not a mark on the radiator to indicate it had ever been tied there. Does this sound odd?  Forrestal was in a secure facility, the VIP suite of the prestigious Bethesda Naval Hospital, under 24-hour suicide watch, being checked each 15 minutes, and the regular guard being replaced by a new guard on his first night on the job.  Not to mention the bizarre method of committing “suicide.”.  All of this circumstantial evidence sure sounds a lot like the modern day American financier and convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide” on August 10, 2019 at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. Has this become the standard method of staged suicide by our Government?

Forrestal’s room shared a bath with his supervising doctor; he fell through a small, unsecured, window in the Diet Kitchen.  Moreover, if Forrestal wanted to hang himself, why choose a tiny window by anchoring himself to a radiator, when he much more easily could have done the job from a door or sturdy fixture, such as the shower curtain rod in his own bathroom? On the other hand, if Forrestal wanted to go out the window, why bother with a cord? Why not simply jump, a far easier proposition?  Jumpers jump and people, who want to hang themselves, hang themselves. They don’t try to hang themselves out of a window of a 16 floor building. Lastly, we do not know that the cord had ever been tied to the radiator, but we do know is it was tied tightly to Forrestal’s neck.

Later inspection found heavy scuff marks outside the window sill and cement work.  Proponents of the suicide theory claim these were made by Forrestal’s feet while he was hanging by the neck from the radiator, and perhaps that he belatedly changed his mind and tried to climb back in.  But the scuff marks confirm no such thing.  They could just as easily have been made by his struggle with someone pushing him out the window.

There are many other suspicious elements to this story, such as the decision to place Forrestal on the 16th floor. This was exactly opposite what ordinary medical opinion dictated. The bottom floor of a nearby annex had been the first choice of his caretakers, but was dismissed by unnamed individuals in Washington. Also, the official investigation of the hospital labeled his death a suicide before any investigation took place; the county coroner rushed to confirm the hospital statements. In cases where there is even a slight possibility of murder, it is normal for a coroner to delay signing a death certificate until an investigation, an autopsy, and an inquest had been completed. This did not happen with the Forrestal case.  Since the death occurred on a U.S. Naval reservation, local police did not investigate. Instead, the head of the Naval Board of Inquiry immediately announced he was “absolutely certain” that Forrestal’s death “could be nothing else than suicide.” The committee’s full report, regarding Forrestal’s death, was held secret for 55 years and was not released until 2004.  The official report, in fact, did not conclude that Forrestal committed suicide. It concluded only that the fall caused his death, and that no one in the U.S. Navy was responsible for it.

UFOs constitute the great hole of contemporary history. We know, at the very least, that this was a topic of great concern to those at the top of American national security policy, despite the near-complete absence of public references to it.  It is the proverbial “elephant in the room” that no one wishes to discuss.  There are several reasons to consider a UFO connection to Forrestal’s death.

In the first place, Forrestal’s position within the defense community made him a de facto key player in the formulation of UFO policy. Because of the strategic importance, even urgency, associated with this topic in policy formulation during the late 1940s, we must assume that Forrestal knowledgeable in this area. The sensitivity of the UFO problem meant that Forrestal’s mental deterioration was a real security risk. One might even wonder whether Forrestal learned a truth about UFOs that contributed to his breakdown.

Secondly, Forrestal’s concern about being followed by “foreign-looking men is a common description of the legendary-to-the-point-of-cliché Men in Black. He never stated clearly just who he believed to be following him, at least not consistently. Others assumed that he was talking about Communists, Jews, and Washington insiders, but they could only assume.

An explanation centering on the UFO phenomenon accounts surprisingly well for the complete unhinging of a successful and brilliant individual, and more importantly, the need to silence someone who could no longer be trusted.  Perhaps Forrestal’s psychological state was such that he did commit suicide. Although the facts of his death do not point toward this conclusion, we do not have definitive knowledge, either.

Ronald Reagan UFO Briefing


According to an unverified internet transcript, in March of 1981, President Reagan met with CIA Director William Casey and a select team of advisors at Camp David were briefed on the subject of unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial visitation of planet Earth. It is not the intent of this article to determine the truthfulness of this transcript but to simply, leave it up to the reader to evaluate its validity for themselves. .The following is a condensed version of the original transcript do to the original transcripts length.


Along with William Casey, Reagan was briefed by an agency operative introduced simply as “The Caretaker”. This man claimed to be custodian of the UFO secrets for thirty-one years, and that he had briefed Presidents Nixon and Ford as well. President Carter, he said, was NOT in the ‘loop’.

The CARETAKER: The United States of America has been visited by Extraterrestrial Visitors since 1947. We have proof of that. However, we also have some proof that Earth has been visited for many THOUSANDS OF YEARS by various races of Extraterrestrial Visitors. Mr President, I’ll just refer to those visits as ETs. In July, 1947, a remarkable event occurred in New Mexico. During a storm, two ET spacecraft crashed. One crashed southwest of Corona, New Mexico and one crashed near Datil, New Mexico. The U.S. Army eventually found both sites and recovered all of the debris and one live Alien. I’ll refer to this live Alien as “EBE 1.” [Note: This is different from our understanding of the Roswell crash. Perhaps one UFOs had an explosion scattering debris over the Corona site then crashed into the ground on the Plains of San Agustin then the second UFO crashed near Datil, New Mexico.]


PRESIDENT: What does that mean? Do we have codes or a special terminology for this?


The CARETAKER: Mr President, EBE means “Extraterrestrial Biological Entity It was a code designated to this creature by the U.S. Army back in those days. This creature was not human and we had to decide on a term for it. So, scientists designated the creature as EBE 1. We also referred to it as “Noah.” There was different terminology used by various aspects of the U.S. military and intelligence community back then.


PRESIDENT: Do we or did we have others? The number “1” would seem to indicate we had others.


The CARETAKER: Yes, we had others. Back then, the term was EBE and no number designation. We’ll explain how the others came into our knowledge.


PRESIDENT: OK, sorry, I was just wondering and I guess, well, I’m sure the briefing will cover this. Please continue.


The CARETAKER: All the debris and EBEs recovered from the first crash site were taken to Roswell Army Air Field, Roswell, New Mexico. EBE was treated for some minor injuries and then taken to Los Alamos National Laboratories, which was the safest and most secure location in the world. Special accommodations were made for EBE. The debris was eventually transferred to Dayton, Ohio, home of the Air Force Foreign Technology Division. The second crash site wasn’t discovered until 1949 by some ranchers. There were no live Aliens at this site. All this debris went to Sandia Army Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico.


PRESIDENT: OK, a question, regarding the first site, how many aliens were in the spaceship?


The CARETAKER: Five (5) dead aliens and one (1) alive. The bodies of the dead aliens were transported to Wright Field in Ohio and kept in a form of deep freeze. They were later transported to Los Alamos where special containers were made to keep the bodies from decaying. There were four (4) dead aliens in the second crash site. Those bodies were in an advanced state of decaying. They had been in the desert for the past two (2) years. Animals and time got to those bodies. The remains were transported to Sandia Base and eventually onto Los Alamos. We determined both crashed spaceships were of similar design and the bodies of the aliens were all identical. They looked exactly the same. They had the same height, weight and physical features. Here are the photographs of the aliens.


PRESIDENT: Can we classify them? I mean can we … well, connect them with anything Earthly?


The CARETAKER: No, Mr President. They don’t have any similar characteristics of a human, with exception of their eyes, ears and a mouth. Their internal body organs are different. Their skin is different, their eyes, ears and even breathing is different. Their blood wasn’t red and their brain was entirely different from human. We could not classify any part of the Aliens with humans. They had blood and skin, although considerably different than human skin. Their eyes had two different eyelids probably because their home planet was very bright.


The CARETAKER: Thank you, Mr President. EBE stayed alive until 1952 when it died. We learned a great deal from EBE. Although EBE did not have voice organs like humans, it was able to communicate with an operation performed by military doctors. EBE was extremely intelligent. It learned English quickly, mainly by listening to the military personnel who were responsible for EBE’s safety and care.


PRESIDENT: Excuse me, but you are referring to this creature as an IT. Did it have a gender?


The CARETAKER: I’m sorry Mr President, but yes, it was male. Within EBE’s race they had males and females.


The CARETAKER:. EBE did explain where he lives in the universe. We call this star system Zeta Reticuli, which is about 40 light-years [38.42] from Earth. EBE’s planet was within this star system.


The CARETAKER: It took the EBE spaceship nine (9) of our months to travel the 40 [38.42] light-years. Now, as you can see, that would mean the EBE spaceship traveled faster than the speed of light. But, this is where it gets really technical. Their spaceships can travel through a form of “space tunnels” that gets them from point “A” to point “B” faster without having to travel at the speed of light. I cannot fully understand how they travel, but we have many top scientists who can understand their concept.


The CARETAKER:  We recovered two alien spacecraft from New Mexico. Both were heavily damaged, but we were able to examine them. The two craft were considered technological marvels by our scientists. However, the operating instrumentation was so advanced that our scientists could not decipher it. The two craft were stored in a special security location in the West. We gained a large volume of technological data from these craft.


The CARETAKER: It was felt that public awareness of these projects would have jeopardized the future space program of the United States. Releasing our secrets about UFOs and alien visitation would also cause a PANIC AMONG RELIGIOUS LEADERS around the world. Therefore, MJ-12 decided that an independent scientific study of the UFO phenomena would be needed to satisfy the public curiosity.

The CARETAKER: Thank you, Mr President. I will continue. In the 1976 MJ-12 report, it was estimated that the aliens’ technology was many thousands of years ahead of ours. Our scientists speculated that until our technology develops to a level equal to the aliens, we cannot understand the large volume of scientific information we have gained from the aliens’ craft. This advancement of our technology may take many hundreds of years.


PRESIDENT: Well, I have a lot of questions, so let me ask a few and then we can move on. I guess the first question I have is their life span. How old is EBE 1?


The CARETAKER: Mr President, the alien civilization that EBE came from [is what] we call the Eben Society. It wasn’t a name they gave us; it was a name we chose. Their life span is between 350-400 years, but that is Earth years.


PRESIDENT: Is time the same on their planet as on ours?


The CARETAKER: No, Mr President, time is very different on the Eben Planet, which, by the way, we call SERPO. Their day is approximately 40 hours. That is measured by the movement of their two (2) suns. The solar system containing SERPO is a binary star system, or two suns, rather than one, like our solar system.


PRESIDENT: Oh, well, your answer creates more questions. OK, as I understand it, their planet has two suns. Wouldn’t that mean the planet was hot? I guess that explains their eyes, having two eyelids.


The CARETAKER: Yes, Mr President. Their suns do not set, like ours. There is daylight during their entire day, with the exception of a short time period where both suns hit the horizon.


PRESIDENT: What is life like on Serpico?


The CARETAKER: Well, Mr President, the distance from Earth to SERPO is about 40 light-years. They can travel that in about nine (9) of our months. I am no scientist, but as I mentioned earlier, they can travel that great distance by means of space tunnels. They seem to be able to bend the distance from one point in space to another. Just how they do this, must be explained scientifically.


PRESIDENT: OK, well, very interesting. Are the laws of physics on their planet the same as our planet?


The CARETAKER: Not exactly. There seem to be a little different laws, especially when it comes to the movement of their planet in relationship to their two suns. Our scientists don’t understand it because it defies some of our laws of physics.


PRESIDENT: Do they use nuclear power, or what type of power do they have in those ships?


The CARETAKER: Mr President, we understand very little about their propulsion system. There seem to be two different propulsion systems. One they use within our atmosphere and one they use once they exit our atmosphere. They do not have nuclear power. Their propulsion system does have some type of low level radiation emissions, but nothing that would endanger us. It isn’t like our radiation, but we call it radiation because we have nothing else to compare it with.


PRESIDENT: OK, well, then Bill, that presents a very disturbing feeling for me. Are you telling me there are different races or species, as you said, visiting Earth at the same time?


The CARETAKER: At least five (5).


PRESIDENT: Are they all friendly?


ADVISER #1: Mr President that is a very difficult question to answer. There are many parameters that we follow to evaluate the threat. However, we have little intelligence on four (4) of the five (5). We have plenty of intel on the Ebens … gee … they’ve given us everything we asked for! They have also helped us to understand the other four (4) species. I’m afraid to say, Mr President and please don’t misunderstand my words, but we think ONE OF THE SPECIES IS VERY HOSTILE. WM CASEY: Mr President, do you wish for us to continue on this track or would you like something more private, as to the discussion of this topic?


PRESIDENT: For Christ sakes, I’m the President of the United States. I should know if we are endangered by some THREAT FROM OUTER SPACE. If you have something to say about a threat posed by this one species of aliens, then I WANT TO HEAR IT.


WM CASEY: Mr President, we have intelligence that would indicate this one (1) species of aliens have ABDUCTED PEOPLE FROM EARTH. They have performed scientific and medical tests on these humans. To the best of our knowledge, NO humans have been killed. But, as ADVISER #1 stated, the intelligence is from witnesses and we haven’t thoroughly evaluated this intelligence.


ADVISER #4: Now, as for the other four (4) species. We know they have visited us in the past and will visit us in the future. We are like a petri dish within the universe. We are a diverse planet. We must be very interesting to other extraterrestrials. I’m SURE other intelligent life forms in the universe must have some sort of communications among the [sentient] life forms. Maybe they broadcasted that Earth has intelligent life. Maybe that is why we are [being] visited.


PRESIDENT: Do you have a … huh … name for them, I mean the bad ones?


The CARETAKER: Thank you, Mr President. We call the hostile aliens simply that, HAV, meaning Hostile Alien Visitors. MJ-12 placed that code on them back in the ‘50s.


The CARETAKER: OK, thank you. Mr President, the five (5) species are called, Ebens, Archquloids, Quadloids, Heplaloids and Trantaloids. These names were given to the alien’s species by the intelligence community, specifically MJ-5. The Ebens are friendly; the Trantaloids are the dangerous ones. [


PRESIDENT: My God, just knowing we have names for these things are amazing. Which one did we capture?


WM CASEY: Mr President, we have a Trantaloid, but it is dead. We captured it in 1961 in Canada and we had it in captivity until 1962, when it died.


The CARETAKER: OK, Mr President, I’ll keep this in general terms. I just want to assure you that all of the information is safely tucked away at secure locations, including the devices and flying craft that we have.


PRESIDENT: May I assume one of these places is located in California?


The CARETAKER: Some of the items are tested at Livermore and flown around Edwards, but they are kept in Nevada.


The CARETAKER: In order to protect all this information and the fact that the United States Government has evidence of our planet being visited by Extraterrestrials, we developed over the years a very effective program to safeguard the information. We call it “Project DOVE.” It is a complex series of [disinformation] operations by our military intelligence agencies to disinform the public. As you know, Mr President, we have some highly classified aircraft.


The CARETAKER Mr President, in 1964, we were able to have our very first controlled encounter with the Ebens. Let me first give you the background. EBE was a mechanic, not a scientist. He was still able to teach us some of the Eben language. Their language was very difficult for our linguists to learn because it consisted of tones, not words.


However, we were able to translate some basic words. EBE showed us their communications device. It was a strange looking device that had three (3) parts. Once assembled, the device sent out signals, something like our Morse code system, although there was a problem. During the crash in 1947, one part of this communication system was broken. EBE was unable to repair it until our scientists found some items that could be used in place of the broken parts. Once the communication device was repaired, EBE sent our messages. We had to trust EBE as to the contents of those messages.


PRESIDENT: Excuse me, did EBE receive any return messages?


The CARETAKER: Getting back to the messages, Mr President, EBE sent out six (6) messages. One letting his home planet know that he was alive and his comrades were dead, another explaining the two crashes, the third was a request to be rescued, the fourth was a message suggesting a meeting between his leaders and our leaders. The last message suggested some form of an EXCHANGE program.


PRESIDENT: (not understood) … what … the exchange program?


The CARETAKER: Mr President, we don’t think he did, but we could not be entirely certain. But, our scientists fine-tuned our efforts over the next 18 months and finally sent two (2) messages in 1955 that were received. We received a reply. We were able to translate about 30 percent of the message. We turned to several linguist specialists from several different universities and even several from foreign universities. Finally, we were able to translate most of the messages. We decided to reply in English and see if the Ebens could translate our language easier than we could theirs.


The CARETAKER: Mr President, the first message we received acknowledged our message and asked questions about the crew of the two missing craft. It also gave a series of numbers that we think were some type of coordinates.


PRESIDENT: OK, so they wanted to know the coordinates of the crash sites on Earth? I’m sure they wanted to know about their crew. Did we tell them all but one was dead? No, wait; I’m sure when EBE sent his messages that is probably the first thing he sent. Was EBE a military person or what?


The CARETAKER: Mr President, we believe EBE was a member of their air force or maybe something like NASA.


PRESIDENT: OK, please continue.


The CARETAKER: Thank you, Mr President. Finally we were able to translate most of the messages. As I said, we decided to respond in English. Approximately four months later, we received a reply in broken English. Sentences contained nouns and adjectives, but no verbs. It took us several months to translate the message. We then sent Eben our typed English lessons in a series of one sheet formats.


Without going into the technical description of the Eben communications device, it was like a television screen and a key pad, but the pad contained several different Eben characters depending on the number of times you held down one key. We were able to transpose our English-typed words into the second part of the device, which was similar to our facsimile transmission system. It took our scientists some time to perfect this, but it worked. Six months later, we received another English message. This time it was clearer, but not clear enough. Ebens were confusing several different English words and still failed to complete a proper sentence.


The CARETAKER: Yes, Mr President, I cannot imagine living on a planet with just one language. But we were able to provide the basic skill level for them to communicate in English. It took time, but they realized our efforts. In one message, they provided us with a form of the Eben alphabet with the equivalent English letter. Our linguists had a very difficult time figuring this out. The written Eben language was simple characters and symbols, but our linguists had a difficult time comparing the two written languages.


Over the next five (5) years, we were able to perfect our understanding of the Eben language somewhat and the Ebens were able to better understand English. However, we had a major problem. Trying to coordinate a date, time and location for an Eben landing on Earth. Even though we could basically understand some Eben and the Ebens could understand some English, we could not understand their time and date system and they could not understand ours. We sent them our Earth’s rotation schedule, revolution, date system, etc.


The CARETAKER: Thank you. When EBE was alive, he showed us two devices. One was a communication system and one was an energy device. The communication system did not work without the energy device. Eventually, a scientist from Los Alamos figured out the two systems and connected them. After EBE died, we were able to send transmissions, as I said earlier. EBE built up a strong friendship with a U.S. Army Major, who was his guardian.


Over a period of a few years, we could send and receive information. We finally received a startling message from the Ebens. They wanted to visit Earth, retrieve their spacemen bodies and meet with Earthlings. They provided a time, date and location. We figure that the Ebens were continually visiting Earth and had probably mapped it. However, the date was about eight (8) years in the future. Our military figured something was wrong and that maybe the Ebens were confusing Earth time with Eben time. After a long series of messages, it was determined the Ebens would land on Earth on Friday, April 24, 1964.


The CARETAKER: Our government, specifically, MJ-12 met in secret to plan the event. Decisions were made, then changed many times. We had just about 25 months from the time we finally received their message of the date to prepare for their arrival. Several months into the planning, President Kennedy decided to approve a plan to exchange a special military team. The USAF was tasked as the lead agency.


The USAF officials picked special civilian scientists to assist in the planning and crew selection. The team members’ selection process was the hardest to accomplish. Several plans were suggested and then changed. It took months for the planners to decide on the selection criteria for each team member. They decided that each member must be military, single, no children and a career member. They had to be trained in different skills.


The CARETAKER: Mr President, a team of 12 men were selected. However, during this time period, President Kennedy died. The nation was shocked, as you know….


The CARETAKER: President Johnson continued the program. When it came time for the meeting, we were ready. The landing occurred in New Mexico. We had everything prepared. We had a hoax landing location just in case it was leaked. The landing occurred and we greeted the Ebens. However, a mix up happened. They were not prepared to accept our exchange personnel. Everything was placed on hold. Finally in 1965, the Ebens landed in Nevada and we exchanged 12 of our men for one of theirs.


The CARETAKER: Mr President. Our team of 12 went to the Eben planet for 13 years. The original mission called for a 10-year stay, however, because of the strange time periods on their planet, the team stayed three (3) additional years. Eight [seven] returned in 1978. Two died on the planet and two decided to stay.


[NOTE: Team Member #308 (Team Pilot #2) died of a pulmonary embolism enroute to SERPO on the 9-month journey; 11 arrived safely. See Release 14]


PRESIDENT: OK, this is just AMAZING! I can see, about that movie. The movie was based on a real event. I saw that movie. 12 men left, along with Richard Dreyfuss.


[”Close Encounters of The Third Kind,” 1977]


WM CASEY: Mr President, yes, the movie was similar to the real event, at least the last part of the movie.


PRESIDENT: What’s with New Mexico? The aliens seem to like that state. Do we know why?


The CARETAKER: New Mexico is similar to the home planet of the Ebens. Since we do not know which planet the Trantaloids come from….


The homeworld of the HAV, the TRANTALOIDS, is the THIRD PLANET out from the star Epsilon Eridani in the constellation Eridanus at 10.5 light-years away. Although somewhat cooler and fainter than our sun, it is very similar


Nearby Star EPSILON ERIDANI has an Earth-like Planet! Is this the homeworld of the hostile ET species, the TRANTALOIDS?!


PRESIDENT: So that means they can travel like the Ebens travel? I mean using those black holes or whatever you call them?


ADVISER #4: Yes, Mr President, they can travel in the same fashion as the Ebens. However, according to the Ebens, the Trantaloids use a different form of propulsion. Something like matter versus antimatter.


ADVISER #4: I was just going to say that we know that when matter is placed next to antimatter, there is a great deal of energy released. If one could harness that into a propulsion system that would be great. But we don’t have the capability to do that.


PRESIDENT: Do we have one of their spaceships?


The CARETAKER: Yes, well, partially. A crashed one.


PRESIDENT: OK, can we or do we have the technical knowledge to understand it?


WM CASEY: No, Mr President, we don’t.


ADVISER #4: Mr President, their technology is probably 1,000 years more advanced than ours … maybe even more. They have different materials to work with. Some of their materials are not found on this planet.


PRESIDENT: What do you mean, like iron or elements?


ADVISER #4: Yes, Mr President. We found many metals and other things that are not found on this planet. Maybe they have more than 104 elements or maybe they are different than ours.


PRESIDENT: The hostile ones or the Ebens?


ADVISER #4: Mr President that goes for each species although the Ebens do have similar elements as [those found on] Earth. But the Trantaloids have strange materials … nothing like [those found on] Earth. These ALIENS CAN IMITATE HUMANS. They CAN LOOK LIKE BLOND HUMANS. However, they are not blond, but UGLY-LOOKING INSECTS.


WM CASEY: They are pretty nasty looking.


ADVISER #4: Well, Mr President, they have the ability to change their bodies. As I said before, they are 1,000 years ahead of us in technology and probably every other science.


PRESIDENT: They can be killed?


ADVISER #4: Yes, they are just flesh and blood, like a human body. They can be killed. But their spaceships have a force field around them. They can be shot down, but it takes some doing on our part.


WM CASEY: Mr President, we have to use a small-style nuclear missile to shoot them down, but we haven’t actually done that yet. We have experimented in Nevada on the captured craft we have of theirs.


PRESIDENT: Can we intercept their radio transmissions? Do we know their language?


ADVISER #1: We know or we can recognize their language, which is entirely different than the Ebens. They use a very high-band radio system. But they have different frequencies and it is difficult for NSA to track them.


[Bolling AFB is where all of the “Project SERPO” files are located which include thousands of photographs of the Eben civilization in several large photo album books, animal, plant and soil samples, audio recordings of the Eben music, and photos of other alien species that visited/were cloned on SERPO.]

Area 51, S- 4

Area 51 is a United States military base located in a remote area of Nevada.  Leading researcher and whistleblower information strongly suggest that the Area 51 section known as “S-4” (Site Four) is where retrieved extraterrestrial artifacts are kept.  On the surface, the more well-known Area 51 (Dreamland, Skunkworks, or Groom Lake draws attention away from the alien secrecy of S-4 by just being an aircraft testing area for advanced aircraft.


Area 51

Employment at S4 is through recommendations of other scientists, many from Los Alamos National Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, or Massachusetts Institute of Technology. To be employed at S4 a scientist is required to sign a secrecy agreement and an agreement to waive their constitutional rights.  They also have to sign an agreement which allows the Government to perpetually monitor the scientist’s activities and phones.

Travel to Area 51 by scientists and employees are provided by a private airline whose Air Traffic Control call sign is “Janet”. Due to the airline’s secretive nature, little is known about its organization. It is operated for the USAF by infrastructure and defense contractor AECOM through AECOM’s acquisition in 2014 of URS Corporation, which acquired EG&G Technical Services in 2002.  Janet boards at a special, secure area of McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas Nevada. Employees board the unmarked, windowless planes from a passenger terminal on the northwest side of the airport. This makes them readily recognizable, and the red stripe across the windows on the fuselage is the only one of its kind.  Only employees of Area 51 and the Tonopah Test Range are allowed to travel on the airline.

The purpose of Janet is to pick up the employees at their home airport, and take them to their place of work. Then, in the afternoon, they take the employees back to their home airports. The airline primarily serves the Nevada National Security Site Area 51 and the Tonopah Test Range..

The Airline consists of a Fleet of six Boeing 737 aircraft (tail numbers N319BD, N869HH, N859WP, N273RH, N365SR, N288DP), and a fleet of smaller executive aircraft, including two turboprop Beechcraft 1900 Executive Liners (tail numbers N20RA, N623RA) and the smaller Beechcraft twin turboprop (tail numbers N661BA, N662BA, and N654BA). Due to its secrecy, Janet uses the code TTR for Tonopah Test Range and XTA for Area 51.  Each week about 20 flights in each direction between Las Vegas and Area 51 or the Tonopah Test Range transport between 1,000 to over 1,500 workers. The first Janet plane leaves Las Vegas at about 4:00 am with the last plane leaving Area 51 at about 8:00 pm.  Flight time is approximately 25 minutes one-way to either prime location.  While Las Vegas is Janet’s home base, at times, it also operates flights between Palmdale, California and other airports.

Travel to Section S-4 from Area 51 is restricted only to those with the proper security badges. At least at one time, the badge was white with two blue hash marks across the upper left side. Below these hash marks, along the very bottom, were the codes allowing the person access to different parts of the facility.  The code would say (S4), then the special area of concern, like (ETL) Extraterrestrial Laboratory, later changed to (EBL) for Extraterrestrial Biological Laboratory.  Other codes included (DX) for Departmental Transfer; and (WX) for Engineering Transfer.  Directly above the (S4) was a star shaped punch. On the right side of the badge was MAJ spelled vertically. The badges also displayed the photo of the scientist, and below, his name, assignment, and badge number.  On the reverse side of the badge was a black magnetic strip, similar to those on credit cards.

Large, modern air-conditioned busses with the blacked out windows drive the scientists on a 15-mile bumpy dirt/gravel road to S-4. The S-4 site is a combination of buildings, and underground hangars built completely into the side of a mountain.  The underground structures consisted of 5 levels, each floor conducting different types of scientific research.

Approaching S-4, the bus passes nine concealed sand textured aircraft hangars, with the doors built into a mountainside, then a sharp left turn to the drop-off site.  The scientists exit the bus, and are escorted to the facility’s entrance. This has been described as simply a steel door in the side of the mountain. The coordinates of the hangar doors are N 37° 01′ 40″, W 115° 46′ 35″.  Employees would pass guards holding snarling dogs.  These dogs were different from “normal” dogs, in that they had their vocal chords cut out to avoid being detected.

Once inside, there was a single guard sitting at a desk in an empty room, with a door behind him.  The entrants were checked-in, then led to another small room with a palm-reader and yet another door. A long hallway which ran the length of the hangar doors led to briefing rooms, restroom, and nurse’s station. The scientist’s work areas were colored differently, and the scientists under guard were only allowed into the area of color that their research was performed.  Even when using the restroom, the scientists were escorted by two guards. The programs at S-4 were compartmentalized, with each group separated from the others.  People in the program worked on a limited “buddy system”. The scientists worked in teams and were obviously not allowed to chat in the lunch room about what everybody was doing.

The first day at S-4, scientists are taken to the nurse’s office and asked to submit to a dermal allergen test.  A grid was drawn on the arm, and diluted solutions of various substances were placed in each section.  On the next visit to S-4, the arm was checked for any skin eruptions or other adverse reactions to the allergens.

Scientists were also given a substance to drink, and were told that it would bolster their immune system response to the alien materials with which they might come into contact.  The liquid had been described as, “smelling like pine.”  Later, many scientists complained about suffering severe abdominal cramps, which were undoubtedly related to the substance they drank.

The hangars were equipped with typical tools and extensive electronic equipment.  The hangars that contained a disc were at the end of a long row of 9 identical hangars.  This is where the UFOs were stored.  Each had a sliding door between them and the trademark “sloped” door, commensurate with the slope of the mountain. Each hangar had a machine with an X-ray warning emblem on it.  An overhead gantry-type crane rated at 20,000 pounds could lift the disc up and out of the hangar.  Equipment in a particular hangar was marked with a black number 41 with a white circle around it.

On the first two underground floor levels of the structure, scientists worked on PROJECT GALILEO. The project dealt with UFO Propulsion Systems.  Scientist studied the role of gravity as the propulsion medium, harnessing, amplifying, and lensing the basic Gravity ‘A-wave, and which has many other possibilities for application.

On the third underground floor level, scientists worked on PROJECT SIDEKICK.  The project dealt with the beam weapon potential of the craft, and the attempt to prototype one of the units using gravity and lensing, it in order to collimate and align the beam.  Once the beam is focused in a triangulated manner on a specific point, the options for destructiveness are endless.

On the forth underground floor level, scientists worked on PROJECT LOOKING GLASS. The project dealt with the physics of understanding the effects of an artificially-produced gravity wave on the dimension of time.  This embraced the control of gravity, and therefore, the control of Space/Time as the key element.

On the fifth underground floor level, scientists worked on PROJECT AQUARIUS, a covert and aggressive action to collect data on the extraterrestrial UFO phenomenon.  Its main objective was to capture one of the extraterrestrials and assimilate their technology.  In 1953, PROJECT GLEEM was initiated by order of President Eisenhower, under control of the National Security Council and Majestic 12, as it was alleged the UFOs presented a threat to the national security of the United States.  GLEEM was renamed PROJECT AQUARIUS in 1966.

When someone is indoctrinated to S-4, they are exposed to at least part of that knowledge base. A scientist would randomly be taken into a small room which contained a table, chair, and be left there to read 120-or so blue briefing folders.  These folders contained a wide spectrum of information, mostly relating to aliens and alien technology.  The reports appeared to be an overview of alien information which could be used to provide an overview of all of the projects, not just focused their specific specialty. The papers stated the aliens came from a planet in Zeta Reticuli binary star system and included autopsy pictures of a dead alien.

These reports included information about human history, philosophy, theology, and the role that aliens play in bringing disc technology to humankind. Much of this information was alarming, even shocking.  The most frightening were reports of the aliens’ involvement with the human race over the last 10,000 years!

In the early years of S-4, the Russian scientists worked with the U.S.  scientists at the site, but in 1989, the U.S. scientists had made a discovery which was a major step forward in understanding disc technology and gravity propulsion.  Rather than share this advanced knowledge with the Russians, they dismissed them from further S-4 activities.   It is unknown if the Russians were allowed to actually work with the alien hardware, but they had been involved in mathematical and physical calculations.  Needless to say, the Russians were not pleased about being left out.

According to Dr. Michael Wolf and Bob Lazar’s co-worker, Barry Castillo, on May 1, 1975 during one such technology exchange in Nevada, a demonstration of a small ET antimatter reactor was performed.  The lead Grey ET asked the Colonel in charge of the Delta Forces guarding them to remove all their rifles and bullets from the room, so that they would not accidentally discharge during the energy emissions. The guards refused, and in the ensuing commotion a guard opened fire on the Greys.  One alien, two scientists and 41 military personnel were killed. One guard was left alive to attest that the ETs apparently used “directed mental energy” in self-defense to kill the other attacking Delta Forces.  Dr. Wolf states that “This incident ended certain exchanges with the Greys.”

Badging got a little more complicated as you advanced to the lower level labs.  No one was supposed to know who you were as you got down into AQUARIUS.  When a scientist was in that sub-level, he was required to place his badge into a plastic bag-like container which went into a decontamination device. When the badge came out, it was returned to the scientist, but it had been laminated.  The badge was then carried over to a badge wall, and put on a hook where the front was facing the wall so that nobody could read it.  Anonymity was key to the process in AQUARIUS.  The scientist would then take a blue numbered badge that corresponded to the badge hook.  This blue badge had only a number on it, like “Scientist #5” for example.   Bottle washers and general support personnel, most of whom were non-scientists, were similarly numbered. This served to isolate the different levels of workers from one another which maintained compartmentalization. Nobody used proper names at that level.

The information above was obtained from the following whistleblowers: Robert Scott Lazar (Bob Lazar) an American scientist hired in the late 1980s to reverse-engineer extraterrestrial technology.

Dr. Barry Castillo was Bob Lazar’s co-worker at S-4. He is recognized for his outstanding performance in analyzing foreign weapons systems, and reporting them to senior policymakers and leadership of major offices in three CIA directorates regarding arms control issues.

Connor O’Ryan was a pseudonym used by Derek Hennessy, a US Marine who, for eleven years was in Special Forces assigned to CIA in the 1980s.  In 1990-1991 he worked for 9 months as a guard at S-4. Hennessy worked on the second level of the S-4 facility.  S-4 employed approximately 75 personnel on levels 1 and 2. He said he was aware of further levels of the facility, but was never allowed to enter them.  He said that approximately 12-15 personnel worked at Levels 3 & 4. His primary duty was to guard the elevators which required three keys, a thumbprint and a retinal scan to open.  He was told to do his duty without wandering eyes.

David Adair is a rocket scientist.  In the past, he had worked for NASA.  Nowadays, David Adair is the president of Intersect, Inc., which is a space technology consulting agency. He had examined a large engine that came out of a flying disk. at Area 51.

Dr. Michael Wolf served as an Air Force Colonel, pilot, flight surgeon and counter-intelligence officer for the CIA and NSA.  He was in charge of a Majestic 12 team known as Alphacom, whose function was to assess the number and types of ET visitors, the extent of visitation, the reasons behind Earth visitations.  The assessments included the extent of human interactions with extraterrestrials in the past, and information regarding the cultures of the various off-world visitors, and how we can negotiate with them.  Dr. Wolf has an M.D. in Neurology, a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics and a D.Sc. in Computer Science.  Now dying of untreatable cancer, Dr. Wolf has decided to reveal what he has learned about the aliens.

Dr. Wolf claims that in the 1950s, the U.S. entered into treaty terms with the so-called Grey ETs from the fourth planet of the star system Zeta Reticuli, but these treaties were never ratified as constitutionally required.  He said the Greys shared certain of their technological advances with military/intelligence scientists, apparently often while they were prisoner “guests” within secure underground military installations in Nevada and New Mexico.  The extraterrestrials have given the U.S. government some of their antigravity craft and a huge amount of fuel (element 115).  According to Dr. Wolf, several confederations of extraterrestrial civilizations are visiting us in loosely-coordinated fashion. Dr. Wolf had concerns about the how religion on Earth was created, and how the knowledge of aliens would be received by the Vatican.  Would such an announcement threaten organized religions?

Dr. Dan Burisch is a microbiologist. He was born as Danny Benjamin Crain, but in 1995 Dan legally changed his last name from Crain to Burisch to match his stepchild’s legal last name. In 1989, as Dan Crain graduated from Stony Brook University  with a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, he was at the same time employed by the U. S. Navy’s DOD Naval Research Laboratory. His rank was Captain and his title Microbiologist IV. In 1994, he was assigned to work in an underground laboratory at S-4, on the fifth floor under the Papoose Mountain installation. The fifth floor is accessible only by one secure elevator.

To work on floor sub-level 5, a scientist was suited like an astronaut, with breathing and urination hoses. His assignment was to enter a round “clean sphere” filled with a cold hydrogen atmosphere of 4%, and an unknown gas(s).  In this atmosphere, Dr. Burisch worked with an extraterrestrial named “J-Rod”, who was one of two ETs captured from a recovered UFO that crashed near Kingman, Arizona in On May 21, 1953. There were three extraterrestrial in the craft, one of which was dead.  They came from the fourth planet of the star system Zeta Reticuli.  The other live extraterrestrial was taken to Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and worked with Bill Uhouse on flight simulator equipment.

Dr. Burisch was told there was a serious medical problem with J-Rod and his species, and that MJ-12 wanted Dan to extract tissue from the being’s arm for microscopic study. A serious peripheral neuropathy was diagnosed and Dr. Burisch said that in 1994, he collected more than 100 tissue samples in an effort to study J-Rod’s nerve damage, and he hoped to develop a treatment.

Colonel Steve Wilson, U.S. Air Force (ret.), former head of PROJECT POUNCE, commanded an elite Air Force/National Reconnaissance Organization Special Forces unit who retrieve downed UFOs.  Colonel Wilson reports that “The first successful U.S. antigravity flight took place July 18, 1971 at S-4, wherein light-bending capabilities were also demonstrated in order to obtain total invisibilities.” Present at this flight were notables such as Admiral Bobbie Ray Inman, former National Security Agency director, who is now head of Science Applications International Incorporated (SAIC), a large U.S. military contractor who work on the antigravity drives.  Colonel Wilson says that the military began flying their enormous Black Triangle antigravity craft, the TR-3B, in January 1994, which was back-engineered from extraterrestrial UFOs.

Colonel Wilson states that a super-secret mobile unit within Delta Force at the National Reconnaissance Office has been deployed with the “Equalizer”.  This is an exotic-looking cannon, 6-feet in length, and 1-foot in diameter.  This device uses low-frequency pulsed microwave energy, and is mounted on a pedestal on the back of a military truck that is used to shoot down UFOs.   The Equalizer is built by LTV (Ling-Temco-Vought) at Anaheim, CA.  It is interesting to note that retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French said that an electronic pulse-type weapon fired from experimental U.S. airplane over White Sands, N.M. brought down the UFO that crashed at Roswell, New Mexico on July 2, 1947.

Thomas Mack Is a retired Air Force Major. He served from 1972 to 1994 as an Air Force Intelligence officer.  He served with the Air Force Scientific Advisory Group at (S-4) Groom Lake, Nevada, from June 1975 to April 1983, and from March 1988 to October 1994, he worked on numerous special projects. All involved the reverse engineering of captured UFOs and the collection of UFO related intelligence. He worked with Dr. Dan Burisch on AQUARIUS.  “R-4800” was the specific program that he worked on, along with JAROD (J-Rod), an extraterrestrial biological entity “EBE” who was referred to as the “Puppet Master.”

When JAROD arrived at S-4 he had no verbal language interface with humans.  A series of symbols were shown to test the alien’s reactions. Some of the symbols looked like letters and others were geometric shapes. The first symbol the alien pointed to looked like a “J.” The other was an “inertial-bar” that looked like a rod. So, humans called the alien “J-Rod.”  Later as communication was established he reveal that his name was Chi’el’ah.

Mr. Mack claims that J-Rod is the most perfect non-human being in the Universe. He said J-Rod actually had a good sense of humor, and could imitate anyone’s voice.  The entire program, COSMIC-MAJIC, was classified above Top Secret, and operated under the control of Majestic-12.  He stated that an extraterrestrial known as EBE-1 from the Roswell UFO crash lived from 1947 to 1952.

Richard Doty is a retired Special Agent who worked for the U.S. Air Force of Special Investigations. At one time he was part of a disinformation project with the government. He confirmed the Roswell UFO Crash of 1947 and described exactly what they found inside. The craft was egg-shaped, not saucer-shaped, and the interior did not have any readily discernable controls even though there were creatures present. The beings were about four feet in length and some had sustained massive injuries. He was later told that they were taken to Kirkland Air Force Base, Albuquerque before going to Los Alamos, then to S4.

Bill Uhouse was a test pilot and mechanical engineer at Area 51 who retired in 1987. He was partnered with an extraterrestrial called “Jarod 2” from 1966 to 1979, who was one of two aliens captured from a recovered UFO impact near Kingman, Arizona on May 21, 1953. The other extraterrestrial had been taken to S4. Bill Uhouse and Jarod 2 worked on building a flight simulator in order to train Air Force pilots to fly advanced stealth reconnaissance craft. Bill Uhouse died in 2009 in Pennsylvania.


This book tells you what the US Government failed to report about UFOs.  It gives a brief UFO history along with the best places to view UFOs. It explains where the UFOs come from, what they are doing here, their propulsion system, and exposes the United States antigravity (UFO) vehicles.

Author bio

Clinton Laird is a retired Senor Distribution Supervisor for Silicon Valley Power, a municipal electric utility owned and operated by the City of Santa Clara, California. He became interested in UFOs in 1960, when he was fifteen years old and attended Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, Georgia, a private boarding school.  At Riverside, he became friends with a school teacher who claimed to be an extraterrestrial not from this World. The teacher demonstrated peculiar extrasensory perception abilities and predicted many events that were to take place in the future. (Many of these events have actually come to pass in the last few years.)

The teacher, Charles Huntley, was dismissed a month after school started, possibly because he became too much of a distraction to the faculty and students. Charles Huntley could very likely have been suffering from some sort of mental disorder, but if he was an extraterrestrial, you could not find a better example. To this day, he is probably somewhere out there amid the stars, seeking the meaning and truths of life..

Clinton has spent years researching many UFO cases that he found interesting. He discovered that the truth about UFOs is indeed out there, but is actively being covered up by a Government team spreading misinformation. While It is not easy to distinguish fact from fiction, but there is a lot of information about UFOs that can indeed be proven as facts, and the time has come for the public to become aware of them.
