That Damnable Socorro symbol/insignia

Kevin Randle, at his blog [kevinrandle.blogspot.com] is having a rough time getting some UFO buffs to understand how the Socorro symbol has evolved.
Referring to the popular symbol as an “umbrella” undermines its significance.

Mrs. Zamora said it was a “curved line with and arrow pointing to it.”

I, and others, refer to it as an arc with an arrow underneath it. It is not an “umbrella.”

And it is the “smoking gun” that illuminates what Officer Zamora saw.

To try and push it into the background, as irrelevant, shows how little some UFO buffs see sighting details that allow for a Sherlock Holmesian moment: a solution to an odd case, one with an exemplary witness, whose account has been marred by sloppy reportage of Ray Stanford and the ongoing nonsense of David Rudiak and a few followers of Kevin Randle’s blog.

  • An arc, or "shield of sorts" over an arrow, ARROW mean direction...

    A shield in the direction there of:?...

    Insignia on the right, could mean, high static-voltage? over an arrow, in the direction there of:?...

    Are we thinking High Voltage?....A Warning of High voltage, maybe?.............?

  • You're on to something Daniel.

    I've posted, in the past here, a slew of symbols that replicate the arc over an arrow insignia.

    Some came very close, a few almost identical, which made me accept the idea that the Zamora/Socorro craft was an Earthly vehicle.

    Thinking that, I, and a few of my guys, searched for companies that might have used such a symbol, and one arrived at a Hughes company (or front company of the CIA: Raven Industries).

    You can find that conjecture by Googling "Socorro Hughes" I think.

  • While a company logo remains a strong possibility, here are some industrial symbols which bear a very uncanny appearance to Zamora's symbol. Have a look:

    We have the modern version (with hand) of the "electrical static discharge" protection symbol, perhaps denoting crew safe areas, with half arc and upward pointing diamond:

    And if there was a blue flame, we have the red "flame detector" symbol, an upward red chevron in a circle:

    Then we have engineering symbols such as "centrifugal", "electromagnetic", and "reciprocating":

    All of these are "in the ballpark" and in 1963 there may have been earlier versions of these symbols used by engineers.

  • Well it appears that Socorro is the new Roswell...temporarily? Agreed, find the true symbol and it's affiliation and the story is solved. I've read comments on Randle's site that the symbol is not of importance and should be disregarded...how odd.

  • And Tim, those "let's disregard the symbol" comments come from die hard ETer's!!
