Jose Caravaca finds another antecedent for a noted UFO encounter

The picture above is a from a 1944 painting by SciFi artist Hannes Bok.

Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca finds the painting and a poem about the painting to be prescient; the painting anticipates the 1955 Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter.

More images to support the media influence on UFO observations and encounters

Our friend and colleague, Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca, in an effort to support my post about the influence of movies and television on alleged UFO encounters (and his developing "Distortion Theory") has provided a plethora of magazine covers from 1915 to the 1960s.

One, above, from 1915, antedates the Wanaque Reservoir intrusions of 1961, covered by Anthony Bragalia at his blog (The Bragalia Files) and here.

I've inserted, at our private UFO web-site, all the covers that Senor Caravaca has provided, in a size that allows you to see the dates and imagery clearly.

French UFO Researcher, Gilles Fernandez offers a newsletter about Paul Kimball's "Best" UFO Case: The RB-47 Incident

There has always been some contention about the intriguing 1957 RB-47 "episode" where an Air Force crew interacted with "something" that tagged along its plane, playing with the radar.

French UFO skeptic Gilles Fernandez supports Tim Printy's analysis that dismisses the event, and Gilles provided us with a newsletter (PDF) that presents the counter view to what Brad Sparks, Mr. Kimball, and others extol.

(For the RRRGroup, I can say the RB-47 event remains an open question if Paul Kimball, a studious UFO researcher, believes it to be significant and not explainable in prosaic terms; although a Printy/Fernandez dismissal is not to be shrugged off either.)
