The Socorro Beings, Garbed in White
Setting aside the two men (clothed in white) – Angels – who appeared to Lot at Sodom [Genesis 19, Hebrew Bible], there are a number of accounts, in Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck’s Wonders in the Sky, of beings, clothed in white, who were reportedly seen or connected to UFO sightings, early on and into the modern era:
August 2, 216 B.C. Cannae, Apulia, Italy – round objects in the shape of ships, on the edge of which were seen men dressed in white. [Page 39]
October 15, 1550 A.D. Biubiu River, Chili – Two beings, a beautiful woman and an old man, both dressed in white, appeared to the Mapuche Indians, and from a comet that had greater brightness than other comets, and fell to the ground, came a beautiful womn also dressed in white. [Page 153 ff.]
1752, Kazan Russia – A man named “Yashka” met a stranger dressed in white who took him to a flying cauldron. [Page 257]
August 7, 1806, Rutherford, North Carolina – a Mrs. Reaves, her daughter, and a Negro [sic] woman discovered a numerous crowd of beings, in a cotton field, clad with brilliant white raiment. The crowd moved to Chimney Rock from which two men appeared with a third, two having the nearest resemblance of men any before seen. [Page 286]
July 1, 1836, Szeged, Hungary – Globular lights were seen and apparitions of an entity resembling “a lady in white” and a dwarf-sized Franciscan monk. [Page 306]
About January 12, 1876, Sheridan, Pennsylvania – a witness saw a light borne by what appeared to be a human figure clothed in white that glided along the ground. [Page 342]
And I’ve covered the 1964 Woomera (South Australia) case, attendant to the Solway spaceman photo a number of times. The sighting involves two beings clothed in white, seen near a pending rocket launch.
Here’s a link to one of my postings about those two beings:
What’s my point here?
That Officer Lonnie Zamora’s experience may be something more that a hoax-inspired prank, or a misinterpreted lunar prototype misstep, or a traveling balloon escapade by a paper company, or a sighting of an egg-shaped extraterrestrial craft.
He may have had a mystical experience, like those noted in Wonders….and elsewhere.
That is, Officer Zamora’s event was something in and from a realm that lies outside the normal human environment.
