Cryptoterrestrials Have a Psychosocial and Memetic Campaign?

Many UFO occupant incidents have a surreal flavor that initially seems to contradict the phenomenon's physicality. If some run-ins with ufonauts are staged events engineered to encourage belief in (and subsequent dismissal of) the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), "they" perhaps couldn't have done a better job than the 1955 Hopkinsville "invasion."

Arthur C. Clarke's maxim notwithstanding, the Hopkinsville "goblins" are an intriguing fusion of the "real" and the "magical." Their abilities seem calculated to tarnish an empirical approach to the ETH by introducing elements of the fantastic; indeed, these same elements would eventually be used as ammunition by would-be skeptics determined to denounce the account.

For example, the diminutive "goblins" reportedly levitated and proved immune to gunfire. While not necessarily out of the realm of possibility for genuine ETs, the entities' goblin-like appearance argues for an origin in keeping with folklore. If they were "real," then their reality might not be as amenable to the ETH as researchers would like. Conversely, the desire to debunk the Sutton family's claim appears little more than a protest against the episode's surreal nature.

Flying saucer's famous landing

Memories of Bexley's most spectacular UFO sighting have been turned into a book by one of the people who witnessed it.

It was July 17, 1955 when Margaret Fry spotted the object as she was making her way to her GP's surgery in King Harold's Way from her home in Hythe Avenue.

Both she and her doctor Dr Thukarta, and around a dozen children playing in the street, saw the strange craft.

Mrs Fry described it as saucer shaped with a "blue/silver/grey/pewter texture, yet none of those colours".

She said it had three spheres set into its base, one of which "flopped out", landing on the ground at the junction of nearby Ashbourne and Whitfield roads.

UK: Lights seen in sky during eclipse

Mystery surrounds the sighting of a "spooky" UFO over west Oxfordshire.

An object, described as "a slow-moving, orange light" was seen passing over Witney during the lunar eclipse two Saturdays ago.

Among those who saw the object, shortly after 10.30pm, were Derek Hall, of Jacobs Mill, Witney, and his girlfriend Paula Siford.

There were also reports of one or more unidentified objects flying over Oxford. Yet a week on, their identity still remains unknown.

UFOs spotted throughout the years in Weld County

Weld County phenomena

* July 7, 1947: A Greeley man working on a hay grinder north of Lucerne said he saw three flying saucers at 10 a.m. They were traveling at a high speed to the southwest. The next day, the most famous of all UFO incidents was announced -- the reputed crash of flying saucers in Roswell, N.M.

* On Aug. 25, 1949, a 12-year-old girl who lived northeast of Greeley reported a "flying disk" over her house in the early evening. She said it was flying far above a small plane. About the same time, some men were flying their small plane in the area, but the girl insisted what she saw was a disk above the plane.

* In 1952, although the exact date is unknown, a Weld County farmer reported he saw five "flying saucers" pass over his farm north of Greeley about 6 p.m. He said he also saw five fighter jets come through the area, possibly searching for the flying saucers, but the "speed of the saucers was immensely greater than the jets." The Tribune story also stated "Women folks were frightened by the terrible noise."

Strange lights above Bridlington UK

David Hinde was traveling from a musical theatre group in Malton to his home in Bempton when he saw what he believes could be a UFO.

"As I approached the Dotterel junction at about 10.45pm I could see in the distance, on the right-hand side, two glowing spherical objects, orange and red.

"I continued watching them and they were moving independently, diagonally, up and down and sideways, both quite close together.

"I pulled up just before Buckton and got out of the car and watched them for five or 10 minutes.

"It looked like they were at the back of the Honeypot Inn. They were distant but I could still see how they were moving.

Woman spots UFO headed for Spurs

An unidentified flying object was spotted over Tottenham this week.

A resident watched gobsmacked from a window of her home off the High Road as a scarlet coloured oval object with flashing red lights soared across the sky.

The woman, who did not want to be named, said: "I've never made a call like this in my life. I've never seen anything like that. I may be barking but was it a visit from one of our friends from another place?"

The mysterious object was spotted last Friday (March 2) at around 10.40am heading in the direction of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

The Real Proof on Roswell

"...It was not an object, it was a craft."
A pilot: witness Chicago O'Hare case.
You know, were not all idiots.

When the last data is retrieved and all the history collected, argued, debated and the last measure-ment has been made, the Roswell ET crash end the truth of what happened will for me be integrity and the risks taken by the original witnesses.
