That damnable Socorro Symbol


Jose Antonio Caravaca has provided, at his blog (with us), an evaluation of the Socorro insignia or symbol as described by Officer Lonnie Zamora.

Readers should be cognizant of the various drawings and interpretations of the Socorro symbol, by us and others, to discern Senor Caravaca's analysis.

Three Universes?


A piece by Dietrick E. Thomsen, in Science News [Volume 105, 2/16/74, Page 109] presents a conjecture about the multi-verse, which has been adopted or adapted by theoretical physicists since.

Thomsen also addresses the "faster-than-light" conundrum currently in the news.

UFOs with little beings: France in the 1950s

Copyright 2011, InterAmerica, Inc.

In the 1950s, circa 1954 probably, a spate of flying saucers were spotted, with creatures that were thought to be Martians.

Here are some clips from a major magazine – Life, I think – that described the saucers and the beings seen near them…

Pierre Lucas of Loctudy saw an orange ball fall from the sky, from which a small, bearded figure with one eye in the middle of its forehead emerged and tapped him on the shoulder:

Serge Pochet of Marcoing was approached by two small shadows:

Gregoire Odut saw a golden disk zoom away from Wassy after a two-legged creature leaped out for a look around:

Jean Narcy saw a craft, also near Wassy, from which a little whiskered man in a fur coat and orange corset emerged:

Marius Dewilde of Quarouble is carrying a railroad tie upon which he saw a rust-colored “flying contraption” land:

Yves de Gillaboz (left) and Emile Renard saw a “Matian machine” belching puffs of smoke in the sky over Amiens:

Francois Panero and Jean Olivier draw an image of a “dumpy little space man” they saw land in a luminous sphere on a basketball court near Toulouse:

We don’t get those kinds of sightings nowadays, do we? And why not?

Jose Caravaca reminds us of a 1954 Socorro-like UFO sighting


1954 – 15 October: In Boaria, Italy a farmer was leading his cows to a pond when he suddenly saw an object fly over his house. The cows panicked and ran away, knocking a girl to the ground, while the object emitted a burst of light. The farmer ran to the house and then fainted. Three other persons saw the craft depart. It was dark in color but surrounded by short blue and yellow flames. It was egg-shaped, flew at 15 meters above the ground, and emitted intense heat. The little pond was found desiccated, and haystacks caught fire as it flew over while the cattle suffered burns. (Source: Jacques Vallee, Passport to Magonia, pp. 229-230).

Roswell Dream Team?


Kevin Randle’s blog indicates that he, Tom Carey, and Don Schmitt have formed a “dream team” – no ego in that! – to re-open an investigation into Roswell – a cold-case kind of thing Randle writes.

Mr. Randle is as obsessed with Roswell as we are with Socorro and a few other UFO incidents.

We actually wish Randle et al. some success, as Roswell remains an open question; something happened near there in July 1947 and no one has really discerned what that something was. (Maybe it was just a minor event that has gotten blown up into a UFO mythos as Christopher Allen, Lance Moody, and French UFO researcher, Gilles Fernandez, among others, believe)

That said, let me tell you that Anthony Bragalia should have been invited to join the dream team. He is one researcher who has discovered some important Roswell minutiae over the past few years.

Moreover, Anthony Bragalia has recently found some revelatory and truly significant material – no, not about nitinol (that so-called memory metal).

If what Mr. Bragalia has found turns out to be as real as it seems to be, Roswell may become as relevant, as some think it is, to the UFO enigma.

I cannot disclose what Mr. Bragalia has uncovered in his exhaustive research; that is for him to do.

But I assure you, that what he’s stumbled upon is not trivial and opens cans of worms that will cause some in the government, if its disclosed, to fill their pants with merde. I do not exaggerate here.

So, dream team? Without Bragalia it’s just dreaming…

Commie Contactees?

Nick Redfern approaches the idea that some flying saucer contactees were "pinko" -- that is, sympathetic to Communist propaganda or worse -- spys or agents for the Soviets.

Deadly Lights by Jose Antonio Caravaca


Spanish UFO researcher, Jose Antonio Caravaca, has contributed two UFO accounts in Spain, from 1897 and 1917 that readers here will find interesting, surely.

1924 Telegram requests help for extraterrestrial signals from space

Copyright 2011, InterAmerica, Inc.


Jose Caravaca, with Jesus Pertierra, have re-discovered a 1924 telegram, from the Navy [!] which requests astronomers’ help in locating signals from Mars.

Click HERE for a readable version of the telegram.

Noteworthy is the Naval interest. (We’ve always maintained that it’s the Navy, not the Air Force, where ufologists will find significant clues to the UFO mystery.)

Also note that the request is for any electrical anomalies.

Mars, in 1924, was considered by most scientists, to possibly harbor life. That suggestion is not unusual in the time-frame, but that it was the Navy asking for the help is something to take into account.

The Navy has had a long interest in the extraterrestrial, and it has never given up that interest to the U. S. Air Force.

Look for UFO materials from the Naval branch of the U,S. military. You may strike pay-dirt, as they say.
