Signs Supplement: UFOs - Part 3
11, 2003 - May 6, 2004
The U.S. and other world governments already have detailed secret
plans for first contact.
BY JIM WILSON
Within the scientific community,
the question is no longer whether extraterrestrial life exists,
but if ET is smart enough to do long division. [...]
Governments and international organizations around the world
have taken notice of the changing odds. No governmental official
has gone on record claiming that UFOs are real, let alone a threat.
Yet with little public fanfare, they have begun preparing for
the single most important event in human history: first contact.
That is, the moment earthlings discover incontrovertible proof
that they are not alone.
Whatever. Regular readers, and those who have done their homework
know that such interactions have been going on for years, and
not for our benefit.
[...] Unless ET materializes from another dimension in the middle
of the Super Bowl, humans most likely will have some advance warning
of its arrival. How much time we get to straighten up for extraterrestrial
company depends upon who spots ET first. [...]
A side bar on this article mentions that, "The International
Academy of Astronautics in Paris maintains a list of volunteers
willing to help world governments if ET arrives," and then proceeds
to give us the names on the list!
The broad-brush outline for Earth's response to the first alien
encounter is set out in an international agreement called the
"Declaration of Principles Concerning Activities Following the
Detection of Extraterrestrial Intelligence." Written by a committee
of scientists organized by the SETI Institute, the declaration
spells out what astronomers should do, and what they should
avoid doing, immediately after first contact.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the agreement
is that astronomers who sign on to the declaration agree to
keep the news of an imminent contact under their hat until the
astronomy community and authorities have been notified.
The rest of the article goes on about their "secret" plans,
including poking and prodding on Plum Island. Just yesterday we
posted an interesting article with the following commentary:
|[...] Why the cover-up of extraterrestrial
visitation? Could there be a more valid reason than fear and greed
among the powers that be? Has popular entertainment been used to
prepare us? [...]
US and Russian space officials
say the crew on board the International Space Station has reported
an unidentified object outside the orbiting craft.
A NASA representative in Russia says American astronaut Michael
Foale and his Russian colleague, Alexander Kaleri, last week observed
what they described as a 20 centimetre long strip of soft material
which was floating in space.
The representative says it is still unclear what the object was.
He says US and Russian experts are studying photos sent by the
crew to determine its origin but insist it posed no danger to
Russian experts say it could have been a piece of the station's
insulation, or a strip used to attach some technical equipment
to the outside of the station. [...]
Strange things have been happening
lately. Global warming is about to cause a massive new Ice Age,
George Bush is looking more and more like a one-term president
and al Qaeda says it now has nuclear capability.
While we have all the money in the world to spend on the military
and on security, the United States can't spend one dime to implement
the Kyoto protocols, which would at least give us a chance at
stemming the upcoming disasters.
At the same time, UFOs are being sighted at all-time levels,
our Mars rovers keep sending back strange images and alien abductions
appear to be on the rise as well.
It may well be time to break out the tinfoil hats and start stocking
up on food and water, as the Apocalypse appears to be nigh.
In Canada, the environmental minister is warning that global
warming is a bigger long-term threat than terrorism because climate
changes will cause the relocation of millions of people and leave
North American agriculture in ruins.
"Terrorism is unlikely to give us the strong possibility
of 500 million refugees," said the minister, David Anderson.
"Climate change is likely to give us that if it goes unchecked."
While we have all the money in the world to spend on the military
and on security, the United States can't spend one dime to implement
the Kyoto protocols, which would at least give us a chance at
stemming the upcoming disasters.
It's a bizarre time to be alive. While every generation likes
to boast that the end is near, in this case the predictions may
actually be true. We may just be a year or two away from a near-total
economic collapse in America, resulting in massive rioting in
And the reason the UFOs appear to be showing up in record numbers
is because aliens apparently like to watch the action, in the
same way I used to watch the goings-on in my ant farm.
My eyes have been opened to all of these possibilities thanks
to the great Art Bell, the radio talk-show host who explores these
things on Saturday and Sunday nights.
In fact, the other night, I called into his show after a very
bizarre event happened in my own life.
I'd come home from work on a Monday feeling dog-tired. I got
home, took a shower, shaved, gave food and water to my cats and
laid down for a nap around 5:30 p.m. I slept for what felt like
hours, having very vivid dreams.
When I woke up, most of the cats' food and water had been consumed.
When I walked into the bathroom, I had the beginning of a 5 o'clock
shadow. I felt totally refreshed from my nap.
But when I looked down at my watch, it was only 6:30 p.m. Obviously,
there'd been some sort of time manipulation at work.
So when I asked Bell about my situation, he told me that I'd
been the victim of what is called a "time slip." It
apparently happens pretty frequently and its cause is unknown.
Some have said that it is connected with the abduction phenomena,
while others see it as only a time-space anomaly.
Either way, it was bizarre. [...]
Now, do I really believe in alien abductions, UFOs and the forthcoming
apocalypse? Not necessarily. What I do know is that there are
many things which science cannot adequately explain and which
the U.S. government has been covering up for decades.
If there are no UFOs, then why haven't the records from the 1947
Roswell crash ever been released? Why have a succession of presidential
candidates promised to open up all the UFO-related files and then
I remember enough from my physics class that any extraterrestrial
pilot would have to be traveling at faster than light speed to
even come close to bridging the considerable distance between
earth and any other life-bearing entity.
The nearest star, Alpha Centauri, is about four light years away
from us. That's approximately 24 trillion miles. It would take
tens of thousands of years for us to get there if we traveled
at the fastest rate possible today. So the possibility of these
abductions all being real seems small.
But, as I said above, these are bizarre times. I'm not ready
to completely discount anything in this realm.
There are individuals who've claimed to be the victims of alien
implants. Doctors have removed objects from them that appear to
be comprised of materials previously unknown to us.
If there are indeed extraterrestrials roaming around our planet,
I wouldn't be so sure their intentions are good. If they've expended
all this effort to reach us, I'm relatively sure that they want
something more than just to observe us.
And, according to some who've studied the issue, a very high
percentage of humans today are actually a hybrid of human and
alien. Maybe the level is as high as 40 percent.
Who am I to say none of this is true? While it's pretty ridiculous
on its face to believe in any of this, I'm keeping an open mind.
And I'm keeping my tinfoil hat at the ready.
On January 14, Lindsay [...]
noticed something odd. A security camera trained on a couple of
the plant's boiler stacks happened to capture an object moving
across the sky .
"I saw a long, black object, and I could see flames starting
at its nose and going up both sides of it," Lindsay tells the
Lindsay wasn't sure what he was seeing, so the 52-year-old did
what he figured was the responsible thing -- he made a videotape
of the flight and alerted the media .
He had better luck with KMBC Channel 9 , which aired Lindsay's
tape and called NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command),
only to find that the U.S. military claimed not to know anything
about a re-entering piece of space junk over Kansas City. The
ABC station also consulted an astronomer, who said the
object was probably a large meteor. [...]
WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Vancouver
and Toronto topped the list of Canadian cities with sightings
of unidentified flying objects, according to an annual report.
According to the 2003 Canadian UFO Survey released Tuesday by
Ufology Research of Manitoba, there were 673 UFO sightings across
Canada last year, 39 percent more than in 2002. Of the sightings
reported last year, 41 were in Vancouver and 34 in Toronto.
"It's still puzzling why we're seeing an increase," survey author
Chris Rutkowski said. "It could be that more people are willing
to admit they've seen a UFO because they see other people admitting
it. The ridicule barrier is almost completely eliminated."
Of the total sightings, 17 percent remain unexplained.
"We have enough information to judge that the other objects were
a star or an aircraft," Rutkowski said.
John Stewart doesn't believe
in aliens but he would like an explanation for the saucer-like
object he saw in the sky last summer. The Stony Mountain resident,
along with his wife and 11-year-old son, reported seeing the unidentified
flying object on Aug. 23 while driving into Winnipeg.
"It was the freakiest thing I've ever seen in my life," said
Stewart, who works for a local recording company. "It was absolutely
amazing to see and the more I think about it, the more I wish
I could see it again."
Stewart's sighting was one of 25 reported in the province last
year, according to the 2003 Canadian UFO Survey. The survey was
released yesterday by an independent research group led by Winnipegger
Stewart said the saucer caught his eye while driving past a farmer's
field on Highway 7 about 6:45 p.m. that day. He initially assumed
it was a small airplane or helicopter, hovering 30 to 40 metres
above the ground, but he realized it was much more than that after
the object flew over the highway median and turned sideways as
it passed cars at speeds of up to 140 km/h.
"Me and my wife looked at each other and said 'What the hell
is that?' " Stewart recalled yesterday. "It wasn't aerodynamic
at all, so it shouldn't have been able to have been flying, let
alone flying while going that fast."
The object was pewter in colour and had a diameter of about three
metres, he said, with black and symmetrical, ball-like windows
along the side. After it flew over Stewart's truck, the family
lost sight of the UFO only 90 seconds after first spotting it.
"I have no idea what it was," he said. "If I believed in aliens
I'd have thought it was a probe of some sort but I don't know
At Rutkowski's urging, all three family members drew a picture
of what they saw. All three drawings were strikingly similar,
He said he wouldn't have come forward if he had spotted the object
while alone, saying there is a stigma attached to people who report
such sightings. Even his friends were skeptical when he told them
"Nobody believed me until my wife said she saw it, too," he said.
"So they now believe we saw something."
Stewart's sighting was one of 115 in Canada last year that have
no apparent explanation, said Rutkowski. [...]
A CITY pensioner is hoping someone
can shed light on a gigantic flash across the sky over his house
which caused his radio to lose its channels.
John Reynolds, who lives in St John's with his wife Margaret,
said he was stunned by the phenomenon, which happened at around
10pm on Wednesday evening.
"I was putting milk bottles out for the next morning, and I saw
the whole sky light up like a gigantic explosion," said the 63-year-old.
"I thought it was a bomb because it was so vivid, I've never
seen anything like it before.
"It lit up into a yellow colour like a sheet of lightning, but
it was so white that I thought it wasn't lightning.
"When I came back in the house my CD and radio player was going
berserk, and we have now lost every channel on the radio."
Mr Reynolds, who works as a printing agent, said he saw a friend
the following day who had a similar experience at his St John's
"He was in the shower at 10pm the same night and the water went
off for a few seconds," said the father of two.
"This man's central heating had a clock, which has now gone wrong."
Worcester police said they had not had any calls reporting unusual
lights over St John's.
Evening News weatherman, Paul Damari said there was no thunder
and lightning in the area at the time.
"No-one has reported anything unusual to me," he said.
Michael Soper, spokesman for Contact International, which collects
and analyses data on UFO and crop circle reports, said he had
no idea what could have caused the gigantic flash, and did not
class the incident as a UFO sighting.
"If there had been several flashes I would have wondered if it
was a covert signalling system," he said.
[...] I saw a low flying Florescent
tube, about 1⁄2 to 1 mile away from me in northern California,
in a little town called Middletown which is approximately 100
miles north of San Francisco. I have a degree in EE and am definitely
not a nut or prone to hallucinations! It was very brightly glowing
mostly white/with a slight tinge of lime.
It appeared to be approx 60 to 80 ft long and about 20 ft. wide.
I have never seen a UFO before, but this was definitely a strange
sight. No noise at all, but there was a very thin almost an invisible
vapor trail behind it and it was moving about 60 mph. I observed
it for about 30 seconds when I looked down for 5 seconds to move
my car completely off the road, all that remained was the thin
vapor like trail which actually stopped at the last place I saw
this light. I would surmise that it just disappeared or stopped
leaving a trail.[...]
[...] Roswell, New Mexico, is
considered by many to be the "mothership" of alien adventure;
one of the most famous UFO "crashes" occurred here in 1947. Since
then a whole culture of alien-awareness has grown. But the city
hardly holds a monopoly on extraterrestrial excitement. In fact,
there are several alternatives to this mainstream alien hot spot.
One of them is Dreamy Draw, a recreation area near Phoenix, Arizona.
As the story goes, a UFO crashed there in 1947, just three months
after the Roswell incident. The remains of two 4-1/2-foot passengers
were reportedly taken from the crash site and kept in a local's
freezer until the military took them away. True believers say
that shortly after the crash, the Army Corps of Engineers built
a dam at the site to cover up the evidence. According to the city
of Phoenix, the dam wasn't built until 1973. Decide for yourself.
If you'd like the opportunity to see a UFO, head out to the "UFO
Watchtower" in Hooper, Colorado. Judy Messoline, a former cattle
rancher, opened the observatory in 2000. Since then, she has played
host to thousands of visitors and claims to have documented numerous
A cemetery in Aurora, Texas, supposedly features an alien pilot's
burial site. A nearby state historical marker tells the legend
of a spacecraft that crashed there in 1897. However, the exact
location of the pilot's grave is unknown. If you can't make it
out to the cemetery, rent "Aurora Encounter," about the alien's
Aliens must like Wisconsin. It's home to three UFO "Capitals
of the World." First there's Dundee, where every summer believers
and nonbelievers alike gather to celebrate extraterrestrial visitations.
They call it UFO Daze. Coincidentally, several UFOs have been
reportedly sighted on nearby Highway 67.
Wisconsin's second "UFO Capital of the World" is Elmwood. UFOs
allegedly started visiting the area in the mid-70s. Since then,
residents claim to have seen anywhere from 30 to 50 strange-looking
objects in the sky. Every year the town holds a festival that
includes a group "UFO Watch."
And then there's Belleville, which holds its annual UFO celebration
the last Saturday in October. [...]
Blimey they don't half sell
some old rubbish on eBay, eh? The latest extraordinary item to
come to our attention is a close encounter video apparently shot
in 1998 by someone called "Sargel18". [...]
This amazing photograph snapped
over Plymouth is being called one of the best pictures of a UFO
A city-based amateur photographer captured this image when he
was trying out his new hi-tech digital camera at night. It shows
what can only be described as an 'unidentified flying object'
hovering above St Budeaux.
Another, equally stunning, snap shows the same brightly-illuminated
object tilted at a different angle.
UFO experts are highly excited by the pictures and the Royal
Navy today asked the Herald to supply them with the photos - because
they want to study them.
Plymouth-based UFOlogist Bob Boyd has called the snaps among
the 'best five' pictures of a UFO he has ever seen - in 25 years
of spotting the phenomena. Mr Boyd, chairman of the Plymouth UFO
Research Group, said: "It's the real thing."
He claimed the picture had been examined by a photographic expert
who confirmed it was genuine.
The man who took the photograph, a dockyard worker living in
St Budeaux, didn't realise what he had snapped until he got home
and inspected his pictures.
A Plymouth City Airport spokesman said it was 'highly unlikely'
it was a commercial flight. Mr Boyd does not know of anybody else
reporting the UFO, but said: "That doesn't mean nobody saw it."
startling images of a UFO hovering above the streets of St Budeaux
were captured by an amateur photographer. The man, who wishes
to remain anonymous, was trying a new digital camera by taking
shots at night. It wasn't until he got home and inspected his
pictures that he spotted the illuminated object. [...]
The Royal Navy has asked the Herald to send it the pictures -
so they can be studied by experts.
A spokesman said the navy had Lynx and Sea King helicopters in
the air that night, but could not reveal their whereabouts. [...]
[...] He was a total sceptic before this but he's now a firm
believer. He was really shocked by what happened.'
The photographs were taken on January 28, just before 6pm,
at St Budeaux Square in the Devon city.
Daily Record Picture Editor Stuart Nicol was more sceptical.
He said: 'It could be a number of things.
'What concerns me most is that the images of the UFO are sharp
but there is a degree of movement in the landscape.'
Alien abductees and university
professors who specialize in extraterrestrial research gathered
last night at University Medical Center to share their out-of-this-world
UA professor Gary Schwartz emceed a free lecture titled "Evidence
for Extraterrestrial Life?"
More than 50 people attended the event, which featured two documentaries
and a question-and-answer session with two doctors who believe
that extraterrestrial life exists in some form.
Schwartz, the director of the UA's Human Energy Systems Lab,
said, "Our lab works in controversial areas, but the topic
tonight is extremely controversial."
Dr. Lynne Kitei, a cardiologist from Phoenix, recounted her numerous
UFO sightings and showed the audience a documentary featuring
her home video of the phenomena, titled "The Phoenix Lights."
Kitei had her first UFO sighting in 1995. She was taking a bath
when her husband started screaming to her from their bedroom to
come see the unusual lights that were "hovering" outside
Kitei described the lights as "three amber orbs, each about
3 to 6 feet in diameter, about 50 to 75 feet above us, hovering
in a triangular formation."
She took video and still photos of the lights as they "dimmed
Two years later, on March 13, 1997, Kitei said a mass UFO sighting
occurred in Phoenix and throughout Arizona. Up to 10,000 people
saw the orbs of light that Kitei described as they waited to see
the Hale-Bopp comet.
Panic ensued as people called the police departments and fire
departments. No one knew what caused the unusual lights that some
described as being attached to some sort of ship that was said
to be more than a mile long, she said.
Kitei called Luke Air Force base and could not obtain any information.
She contacted the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where one air traffic
controller and one commercial pilot reported seeing the lights.
Nothing showed up on the radar.
The mystery went unsolved until 2000, when the National Guard
staged an air show to prove to the public that an Air Force maneuver
was behind the mysterious "Phoenix lights." They flew
planes with flares attached to them over the city to "re-enact"
But the people who had witnessed the real Phoenix lights, including
Kitei, were still skeptical.
Kitei contacted Schwartz, who was reluctant to take on the subject.
"To tell you the truth, I didn't really want to see her,"
But Schwartz found Kitei's evidence very convincing and said
that she was "alarmingly sane."
[...] Schwartz said we as a culture need to stop denying reliable
data on controversial subjects.
"Shakespeare said, ‘To be or not to be; that is the
question.' But for us, it's, ‘To see or not to see; that
is the question," he said.
ST. PETERSBURG - The aliens
Thus declared Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell on Saturday
to more than 200 admirers.
"A few insiders know the truth . . . and are studying the bodies
that have been discovered," said Mitchell, who was the sixth man
to walk on the moon.
Mitchell, who landed on the moon with Alan B. Shepard, said a
"cabal" of insiders stopped briefing presidents about extraterrestrials
after President Kennedy.
For those who might consider his statements farfetched, Mitchell,
who has a doctorate in science from the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, noted that 30 years ago it was accepted that man
was alone in the universe. Few people believe that now, he said.
Small, unidentified low-flying,
slow-moving aircraft have been reported in the area north of the
Scioto County line in the A-plant area. Several ideas about the
purpose of the aircraft have been offered.
Are the aircraft small patrol planes from Homeland Security watching
for Al-Quaida intrusions at the A-plant? Or perhaps the craft
are alien space ships that are flying close to the nuclear plant
to recharge their batteries before zooming off to Mars, Pluto,
Uranus, or other strange and unusual places such as Cleveland,
San Francisco or DisneyWorld.
One sighting was in the area of the Southbound Flea Market on
U.S. 23. Pike County residents said the craft was moving silently
from the direction of the A-plant just at dusk with lights flashing.
Are these aircraft something more sinister than mere interplanetary
cruise ships? Could these aircraft be attack planes carrying weapons
of mass deception? Or are they possibly reconnaisance craft from
an earthly nation? Or, are they merely tourists gathering, practicing
and preparing for a flying visit to busy, vibrant, downtown Portsmouth?
In another sighting it was reported that an aircraft was seen
flying from the direction of Frasure's Lake. Are the craft secretly
harbored in the hills of the wilderness of western Scioto County?
We don't yet have the answers. If sightings continue to be reported
we will ask Doug Deepe to investigate. He is an Air Force flying
veteran; he will find the answer.
Several members of our staff think they have the answer. One
unsteady fellow even offered up the demented idea that the aircraft
are only silent hang-gliders powered by electricity. What do you
[...] Did you ever notice how
oddly UFOs are said to behave by some witnesses? They seem to
act almost... playful. They seem to enjoy playing hide-and-seek
or cat-and-mouse games with people.
Foo fighters , objects seen in the skies over Europe during World
War Two, were said to fly along for a time at the wingtips of
allied aircraft, then turn away and vanish into the sky, much
like dolphins will follow a boat for a time before going off to
do dolphin things. They never showed any aggression.
More recently, UFOs seem to acknowledge the presence of aircraft,
to follow them or to fly alongside them, even seeming to dare
aircraft to chase them at times. A good example is the RB-47 case
of 1957. According to some reports, UFOs seem to sense the presence
of people on the ground and to interact with them at times, to
follow cars, to show themselves and then dart away, even to signal
with light in a few cases.
Are these behaviors what we would expect from an extraterrestrial
craft containing intelligent alien beings? At times it seems to
me that some UFOs might be living beings in themselves, rather
than alien spacecraft.
Some types of UFOs, such as Jose Escamilla's rods , are certainly
presented as living creatures of some kind. "Orbs" and "spooklights",
if they aren't merely a physical phenomenon, seem more to be living
creatures than to be craft containing aliens.
The idea that UFOs might be some sort of living creatures inhabiting
earth's atmosphere rather than nuts-and-bolts craft is not a new
one. Charles Fort seemed to believe something of the sort about
some of the reports that he collected. Kenneth Arnold, the first
"modern" UFO witness, believed later in his life that UFOs were
living creatures. Trevor James Constable is the author of several
books, including The Cosmic Pulse of Life and Sky Creatures, in
which he proposes that UFOs are "Plasmatic inhabitants of our

the houses. Some of the children thought it was triangular in
shape and others square, but it could have been to do with what
angle they saw it."
"It had red lights around the edge and yellow lights in
the middle. They rushed in to tell us about it, but the time we
got out it had gone. The children say the object had stopped above
the house behind us and then shot off in hyper drive. Later that
evening they started drawing pictures of what they had seen."
"I would like to know if anyone else in Littleborough saw
Louis said: "I looked up and saw some lights flashing in
the sky. I went in the house to get my mother, but when we went
out it had gone."
A spokesman for the National Air Traffic service said: "There
was no reported alien activity in controlled airspace that we
are aware of."
A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Defence said: "I
am not aware of any other reported sightings. We do have a UFO
report line telephone number so that people can report things
which they cannot explain." [...]

Yet the publication that took UFOs from the sci-fi hinterland
to the mainstream has now enjoyed its final print run. After almost
25 years, UFO Magazine was quietly shut down last week. Suggestions
of paranormal interference or alien involvement have been ruled
out. The reason is more down-to-earth: not enough people care
Sources said its closure had been inevitable since the death
of editor and world UFO expert Graham Birdsall last September.
Birdsall along with younger brother Mark founded the Leeds-based
magazine in 1981. Soon it became the world's top UFO publication,
selling up to 35,000 copies at its height. Subscribers still talk
about the puncture marks on sheep carcasses which offered proof
that extra-terrestrial visitors had arrived to suck the juices

said the public's fascination with mysterious flying objects had

[...] Pat Hutchinson was always talking of Martians, clones and
UFOs. After he shot his wife and the two firefighters and was
still inside the house, Pat told a reporter: "There's only 735
true humans left in Lexington. Less than 3 million left worldwide."
[...] "Let's go back in time
just a bit," he said, before introducing some television clips
as a way of reminding the audience the story of the Phoenix Lights.
A lot of people were watching the skies that night to see the
Hale-Bopp comet. Instead, dozens reported seeing a V-shaped formation
fly over Phoenix around 8 p.m., roughly following Interstate 17
north to south through town, before disappearing in the southern
sky. Some said the craft was a mile long. Others said they could
see through it and that the lights seemed to move independently
of each other. [...]
Kitei herself didn't see the big "V" fly over Phoenix. But for
years, she had seen a series of lights appear in the southwestern
sky, somewhere in the area of the Barry Goldwater Gunnery Range.
Military pilots routinely drop flares there, and documents showed
they dropped an unusually large number on the night of March 13,
Kitei described her first sighting, in 1995, of three amber orbs
close to her mountainside home. She placed them in the sky with
her hands as she described how they disappeared in place. "I didn't
put this in the book, because the publisher thought it would be
too much," she said, "but I felt there was an intelligent presence
The orbs appeared again, more frequently, in 1997. By March of
that year, Kitei said she was videotaping them every night. She
said the lights do appear to act like flares, "but the video does
not do it justice." [...]
Her book mentions that most people who experience an unexplained
phenomenon, like a near-death experience, or an alien abduction,
come away with a sense of tranquility and peace.
"Maybe these phenomenon are touching one person
at a time," she said. "Whatever it takes to wake a person up to
the spiritual beings we are and the goodness we can put forth
during this short time we're on Earth."
One month after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington,
Kitei said she began to meditate, trying to communicate with whatever
was creating the orbs near the Estrella and South mountains. "Have
you forgotten about us? Do you know what happened down here?"
she asked quietly. It had been awhile since the orbs appeared.
But a few minutes later, she looked out her picture window, and
there they were.
"And it did give me comfort," she said. "For
whatever reason, it did."

Ramsey will present his findings at the 7th annual Aztec UFO
Symposium Friday through Sunday at Koogler Middle School. His
talk, which he says is "no smoking gun," will be presented
