The Authentic Book Of Ultra-Terrestrial Contacts
From The Secret Alien Files of UFO Researcher Timothy Green Beckley
THE ULTRA-TERRESTRIAL “INVASION” OF THE EARTH HAS BEGUN!
The Ultra-Terrestrials are here and they are walking amongst us! According to the world famous “Mr UFO” Timothy Green Beckley, throughout history we have been encircled by invisible beings who can upon occasion materialize and take up a variety of shapes and facades – even looking so human in appearance so that they can walk on the surface undetected. Some of these beings may come in peace. . . while others are here for their own nefarious purposes, perhaps going so far as to control our minds, possess our body and do bloodcurdling experiments upon us.
EXCLUSIVE: WORLDWIDE REPORT BY JORGE J. MARTIN CONFIRMS CASTRO RECENTLY CONFRONTED A CRASHED UFO AND ITS ALIEN CORPSE!
This work includes dozens and dozens of strange cases taken from over 40 years of dedicated research by the author who was editor for over twenty five years of UFO REVIEW – THE OFFICIAL FLYING SAUCER NEWSPAPER, and UFO UNIVERSE sold on newsstands worldwide. He has appeared on Coast to Coast AM, the History Channel’s UFO Hunters and most recently William Shatner’s Weird Or What? show where he revealed the true origins of a strange little creature who had been captured in a animal trap in Mexico and mistaken for an “alien baby,” which it definitely is not! Though its actual origin is even stranger and more abnormal.
Here are case studies that have never been published. For example... The trucker who says he took a space journey that covered Light Years. – The man from Tehran who claims “I was taken inside a flying saucer!” – The nine foot Martians and the Silvery Midgets. – Flower “People” and Alien Pods.– Space Monsters from afar . – The Emissaries of Peace, the Spacemen who seek love and not war!
Mr UFO says once we have separated the good and the negative Ultra-Terrestrials that it can benefit us to institute contact with these beings. He tells us how to contact the peace loving Guardians. How to set up a telepathic bond with The Watchers. Here are even the plans for The Nikola Tesla Scope, a communications device which may be used to “talk” with the “Outsiders.”
As a BONUS anyone ordering this book has an opportunity to receive at no additional cost a free 60 minute audio CD which discuses the various forms of alien contact and how to get the most positive benefits out of a UFO sighting or close encounter.

Who's in Charge if We Find Life on Mars?
By Matt Ridley
If all goes well in August, Curiosity, NASA's latest mission to Mars, will land in the Gale crater, a 3.5-billion-year-old, 96-mile-wide depression near the planet's equator. Out will roll a car-size rover to search for signs of life, among other things. It will drill into rocks and sample the contents, using a mass spectrometer, a gas chromatograph and a laser spectrometer.
In the unlikely event that the project finds evidence of life, then what? In particular, who is in charge of deciding what we should do if we encounter living Martian creatures?
Please note that the chances of Curiosity finding actual microbes look very small. They probably lie deep beneath the surface, out of range of lethal radiation and beyond the reach of the rover's probes, and even then they will be rare, if they exist at all. A new paper, however, hints that there's a chance of finding organic molecules that may be characteristic of life. Alexander Pavlov of NASA and colleagues have calculated that simple organic molecules, such as formaldehyde, could survive as little as 2 inches below the surface of Mars, while in young craters more complex molecules like amino acids could be found at such depths.
But none of this would be actual life.
Even a promising fossil would leave doubts about whether anything still lives on the red planet. So the day when the discovery of Martian life is announced is still a very long way off. But perhaps it's time to start thinking about what should happen on that day.
In some ways it is bound to be an anticlimax. Like the announcement of the Higgs boson last week, however magical the moment may be in historical terms, it will not affect most people's daily lives. We can celebrate, congratulate, revel in the detail and philosophize on the meaning, but earthly life will continue as if little had happened.
Pretty soon, though, a political angle will emerge. For one thing, politicians and journalists from countries other than America will start to grumble that this discovery must "belong" to all humankind and not just to NASA. The U.S. government, despite having forked out all the costs of exploring Mars so far, including the $2.5 billion cost of Curiosity, will probably agree. But who will end up making the key decisions?
The United Nations is almost bound to set up an agency to oversee what experiments are planned, but the U.S. may prefer a different body. Private consortia may conceivably start to plan how to go and retrieve a sample, dreaming of the riches to be garnered from displaying it on Earth. If so, nongovernmental organizations will quickly begin to worry about the safety of such a scheme and to champion the rights of Martian microbes to be conserved and respected in their lairs.
In other words, the discovery of extraterrestrial life would produce some predictably messy earthly responses.
As far as I can discern there has been very little public discussion of these issues. The Outer Space Treaty, opened for signature in 1967 by the U.S., U.K. and Soviet Union and ratified by 100 governments, says that no country can claim political sovereignty over land in outer space. The treaty does not forbid private ownership of land in space, however, and it would be up to terrestrial courts to decide if such claims were recognized. Also NASA has clear policies on how to prevent the contamination of one planet with the life of another.
If we hear a radio signal from an extraterrestrial intelligence, there's also a protocol in place, drawn up by the International Academy of Astronautics and invoking three principles: that the decision on whether to reply should be made by an international body; that it should be sent on behalf of all humankind; and that its content should reflect a broad consensus.
But this is of no relevance to unintelligent Martian microbes. If extraterrestrial life is a mystery, so is the question of what we do when we find it.

The Ultra-Terrestrial "Invasion" Of Earth Has Begun
By Timothy Green Beckley
After nearly half a century investigating UFO reports, I am convinced that throughout history we have been encircled by invisible beings who can upon occasion materialize and take up a variety of shapes and facades – even looking so human in appearance so that they can walk on the surface of our planet undetected. Some of these beings may come in peace. . . while others are here for their own nefarious purposes, perhaps going so far as to control our minds, possess our body and do bloodcurdling experiments upon us.
During the summer of 1966, a Gallipulis, Ohio, nurse saw a dome shaped UFO land in a remote field outside of town. She was compelled to leave her auto and walk toward the craft. Several seconds passed before a number of beings emerged from the UFO and walked up to the woman, who found herself unable to move from nervousness and fear. The woman said the aliens looked exactly like earthlings and spoke to her for several minutes in perfect English. Eventually, the ship departed and the woman rushed into town to report her experience. She went immediately to the sheriff's office and told aim what had happened. The law enforcement official laughed at her and told her to go bother someone else.
Months later, while walking along the street, she saw these same two men. Again she ran into the sheriff's office in an attempt to drag him out to see the "space people" for himself. Once again he refused. Since then she has been constantly ridiculed by her neighbors and now refuses to discuss the case with anyone, though she continues to maintain that these Ultra-Terrestrials are living in her community. YES! They can pass for humans, but they are not and their true forms may be too horrific to comprehend.
Recently, I dug deep into my 50 file drawers and came up with some of the most amazing stories I have gather which I put together in my most recently published work -- THE AUTHENTIC BOOK OF ULTRA-TERRESTRIAL CONTACTS, released less than a week ago. This work includes dozens and dozens of strange cases taken from decades of research while editor of UFO REVIEW – THE OFFICIAL FLYING SAUCER NEWSPAPER, and UFO UNIVERSE both of which were sold on newsstands worldwide. I have appeared on Coast to Coast AM, the History Channel’s UFO Hunters and most recently William Shatner’s Weird Or What? show where I did my best to reveal the true origins of a strange little creature who had been captured in a animal trap in Mexico and mistaken for an “alien baby,” which it definitely is not! --though its actual origin may be even stranger and more abnormal.
WILLIAM SHATNER’S “WEIRD OF WHAT?” ASKS ME FOR VERIFICATION OF ALIEN CORPSE
As far as the “aliens” go, I prefer to identify them as Ultra-Terrestrials because none of us can be certain of their true origins. Yes! some could be legitimate ETs, but we have no definite way of proving this theory, so its each to their own when it comes to verification. Regardless of their home stomping ground, we can’t deny they have been cunning, cagey and crafty. We can’t believe for one minute what they tell us, because they seem to change their modus operandi and personal narrative with every single close encounter. In addition, who can accept as gospel the word of any being that can shape shift in front of our eyes?
From an alien to a gnome in less than sixty seconds does not built up confidence. In the course of my UFOlogical career I have seen and heard just about everything. I am never amazed anymore at the bizarre claims that I have to deal with. They come to me either directly from those involved, or from what I consider to be credible sources. As editor of such publications as UFO Review, and UFO Universe there has been such a continuous stream of raw data that I now possess file cabinet after file cabinet crammed with all sorts of data of varying quality.
Today there is a multitude of postings on the internet pertaining to UFOs, but as far as I am concerned there is no way of checking on the validity of these incidents. In the “old days” we relied a lot on the mass media – both local and international – for information. And usually as much effort as possible was put into authenticating the story before it was printed. You at least knew the individuals mentioned in the clippings on hand were not a figment of the imagination of some editor over at the Weekly World News, a weekly tabloid that regularly lampooned the subject even if some gullible readers didn’t realize they were being put on.
If I say so myself, THE AUTHENTIC BOOK OF ULTRA-TERRESTRIAL CONTACT contains some of the best reports and encounters that fascinate me the most. They are as spine-tingling to me now as they were when they originally appeared in print. They were clipped out of newspapers most of us have never heard of and sent to me by a legion of associates worldwide. Very few other researchers possessed the network of freelance stringers that I did. Though it’s gotten more difficult to verify some stories because of the unanimity of the World Wide Web, I do my best to maintain a certain standard before I will say I absolutely believe in something.
Last year, I received a call from a Toronto-based production company. CINEFLIX is the outfit behind “William Shatner’s Weird Or What?,” a paranormal “fact or fiction” show that is in its third season, airing on the History Channel Canada. Currently, you can’t “officially” view this program in the States, but it’s immensely popular north of the U.S. border.
Now I should stipulate that I first met Shatner back stage at Dick Clark’s $10,000 Pyramid game show sometime in the 1970s. William Alan Shatner is a Canadian actor, musician, recording artist, author and film director whom just about everyone adores. He has a charming sense of humor and a down to earth charismatic personality. Over the years, Bill and I have shared a mutual friend and I even spent an hour in jail due to a misunderstanding of the hilarious kind. The unprovoked incident took place while Shatner was performing with a philharmonic orchestra inside in the world famous Madison Square Garden arena.
The circumstances that surround this story are too complex to go into right now and are not relevant to the matter at hand anyway. But it still causes a chuckle or two whenever I relate the circumstances around this “misdemeanor” – at the time – not so uproarious episode. I can say this much for sure – Bill loves a challenge. He is not above doing almost anything to cause a stir and to draw attention to his performance art, even if it might seem a bit hokey or silly to some.
“Captain Kirk” is as fascinating in real life as he obviously was to millions of adoring fans who remember him from the Star Trek days of his career. He always has been hard pressed to say NO! to any opportunity presented to him, even if it requires him to recite poetry or to record a selection of his favorite songs, including “Rocket Man” and “Bohemian Rhapsody."
In order to set the stage for my recent invitation to appear on “William Shatner’s Weird Or What?” I have to turn back the clock to our initial meeting. I was working at the time as a freelancer for several of the national tabloids including the Enquirer, the Star and the somewhat seamier scandal sheet known as Midnight. This was in the days before having to stalk a celebrity to get a good story was required by such publications. I met dozens of well known personalities and on a more or less equal basis. Some of them wanted to hear all about UFOs and the paranormal as much as I wanted to hear about their careers.
Canadian born actor and Star Trek stalwart William Shatner wanted to tell me about his own UFO experience, and so we arranged to meet back stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater in NYC, where he was taping a week’s worth of the Ten Thousand Dollar Pyramid hosted by Dick Clark.
“I’ll tell you a story that happened to me, and is open to any kind of interpretation you wish,” Shatner began. The story he told me was to become his often quoted epic encounter with a spaceship that he felt at the time had nothing to do with his having been a character in a weekly televised science fiction series.
“In the late ‘60s, when Star Trek was on, there were a lot of UFOs being sighted in the desert near Palmdale, California. We heard all kinds of stories about these objects, crafts, spaceships – call them what you will. There was even one fellow who said he talked with creatures from space. During this period, I used to drive my motorcycle a great deal, and would occasionally head for the wide-open span of sand and sun. With my sense of humor, I’d say to myself, ‘Well, if I were a little green man in a flying saucer and wanted to get publicity’ – which is what they would seem to be seeking –who would I contact faster than Captain Kirk of the Star Ship Enterprise?’” Shatner says he would often wonder if they were capable of picking up the thoughts of earthlings.
“One day I was out driving with four other guys, around noon – that’s the hottest part of the day in the desert – when I hit a hole and fell from my bike. I must have fainted when the bike collapsed on top of me. When I came to, I estimate that I was unconscious for only about a minute, I couldn’t get my motorcycle started. The motor refused to turn over. . . So here I am in the middle of the desert with a metal helmet on, wearing a leather jacket, heavy pants, boots and a machine next to me worth close to five thousand dollars.”
Shatner didn’t want to leave the bike behind but it was definitely too heavy to carry or even push along. It was at this point that he happened to see something gleaming in the blistering sunlight.
“It was like when you have a nightmare and you feel something crawling over your body or wrestling with you. As you awaken from the dream it turns out your blanket was the thing crawling over you. In other words, it was more of a sensing – a feeling – a shadowy phantom. All I know, positively, is that I suddenly felt better.
“As I said, when I came to I couldn’t get the bike to move. No matter what I did it refused to start. Finally, I tried pushing it up a hill, but it wouldn’t go in that direction. Then I turned around and decided to go down the hill, but it still wouldn’t budge. Nor did it obey my command to turn left. Eventually, I shoved it to the right and it began to move as though it was going some place on its own. But this time I was doing what I was feeling. One could say I was doing what I was told to, but I was just doing the easiest possible thing.
“Fantastic as it may seem, the motorcycle appeared to have a way of going on its own. At this point I thought I saw somebody – another cyclist – in the distance waving me on, and so I continued to struggle with the heavy metal monster until I stumbled upon civilization in the form of a gas station in the middle of the desert, resting at the side of an old paved road.” Shatner seems to insinuate that this “other cyclist was some sort of sinister phantom – possibly a men in black. For when this figure joined the pack of Shatner’s biking buddies they would have assumed it was Bill trailing behind, when in actuality he was wandering about stranded an possibly ready to die in the desert heat.
Though I apparently was Shatner’s prime target to relate this experience to, because he knew it was going to appear before the Enquirer’s almost three million readers in those days, as far as I know he repeated this extraordinary tale numerous times to other interested parties.
Some critics may say that Shatner created this account for the sake of publicity.
I got chastised numerous times for my accepting his story at face value. I was always quick to point out that I was not on assignment to seek testimony from a pilot or a police officer, nor was it necessary to conduct a polygraph examination. This was more or less an entertainment piece, not a scientific inquiry, and so I let it go at that. Did his potentially life saving UFO experience really happen, or can we put it down as an urban legend of the Mojave Desert told by one of the most entertaining actors of our time?
Recently, in the last few months, Shatner revealed during a TV interview that he had concocted the entire incident, I would surmise to get some non-Star Trek media attention, as all celebrities must garner some form of publicity if they are to stay at the top of their game. I have been asked if I am offended that Shatner “took advantage” of the situation and used me in effect as a patsy to grab the limelight and possibly boost his “ratings” among UFO fans who are not usually all that thrilled by Star Trek and science fiction in general? Not at all! It was a wonderful story and it paid my overdue electric bill at the time, I am sure. Like I say, there was no call for a close scrutiny of the events Bill Shatner related. But it seemed to be a well thought out story; still, Bill is an actor and that’s what good actors do best – create believable stories that will live on (like Shakespeare?).
But now let’s speed up and time travel ahead to the present day. Somehow CINEFLIX got wind of what they thought would be a great story to dramatize as part of Shatner’s series for the Canadian counterpart of the History Channel. The Canadian cable outlet airs some of the same shows that the History Channel in the U.S. does, but they also have original programming of their own which CINEFLIX produces a great deal of, and very adequately, I might add. I spent three days in Toronto as we went over every minute detail of what we were going to film. If it were Major Donald Keyhoe he might have flipped out (like he did on the Armstrong Circle Theater because, though the show was not “scripted,” we did have certain perimeters to work within.
It was my old friend Joshua P. Warren, host of Speaking of Strange – broadcast every Saturday night out of Ashville, NC – who originally hooked me up with the Toronto production company who was looking for “someone in authority” to confirm the legitimacy of a tiny creature caught by a Mexican farmer in a large animal trap that had been dubbed “an alien space baby” by the easily excited and emotional press in that country. I remembered that Josh had talked about this “remarkable” finding on the Dark 30 Hour portion of his show and had posted a picture of the alien baby on his website www.SpeakingOfStrange.com.
Warren is a real character, a true showman, and so it’s hard to define “real” in his world. Josh is a film maker, like myself, and we share a lot in common, including a pint of brew from time to time. We met at a horror film fest and didn’t realize that each of us was an expert in the paranormal. Josh is a certified ghost hunter supreme and probably the world’s leading expert on the mysterious Brown Mountain Lights seen in dense forest and mountains around Morgantown. Hundreds have gotten up close and personal with these lights and Joshua has even videotaped one (and this is for real!).
One of the old timers living on the mountain, a fellow named Ralph Layl, had claimed to have journeyed inside the mountains, met with aliens at an underground base there and even had one of the visitors laid out in a coffin under the counter at his long crumbled Outer Space Museum at the very point where the forestry department has set up a roadside stop so tourists can attempt a sighting of the lights themselves. After buying one of his booklets that told his “entire story,” he would bring out the little creature which resembled a pigmy more than it did an alien. I had snapped a shot or two of the creature in the coffin and it had been published and posted with the proclamation that I had proclaimed it an actual alien corpse. NOT TRUE! But, hey, a good story is a good story and so I let it ride.
Nevertheless, when Shatner’s people contacted me about verifying the alien baby caught in a trap in Mexico I told them outright that I was skeptical. Even I don’t want to ruin my credibility. After studying stills of the creature and a video or two I told the Cineplex staff that there is no way I could go on “William Shatner’s Weird or What” and declare this a true extraterrestrial. However, upon closer examination, I wasn’t ready to write the little tike off completely. Minus its skin layer, the sinister looking carcass did appear strange and unusual – I know Shatner would prefer the word “Weird” in there somewhere and I was willing to go that far.
The legend goes that the farmer Marao Lopez had captured the creature, shown it to a few of his farm hands and when it squawked and lunged for them (what would you do if you were tangled up in a nasty trap?) they did the only thing that came to mind . . . they dipped the creature into a vat of acid which pealed off his skin and killed him. Greetings to you Mr. Teethe men eventually took their possession to a university in Mexico and they were told that it was like nothing born of this earth, though it did have some components that appeared human (like a hybrid?) The scientists said the creature could not have been a mutant of any time as it had no DNA and all living things should have DNA.
Tests revealed a creature that is unknown to scientists – its skeleton has characteristics of a lizard, its teeth do not have any roots like humans and it can stay underwater for a long time (well, if it’s dead, that last statement has no meaning). Supposedly, we hear on good authority that the farmer who caught the creature in the trap (there was said to be a second one who escaped)died shortly after all this attention when he was in a bad car accident and burned to a crisp. A case of the Ultra-Terrestrials seeking revenge?
My notion was, and this was what I told Shatner’s producers, that the creature could not have been a space being. First off, it was too tiny and fragile to wheel itself about at the speed of light. And where was the craft that it arrived on Earth in? And what about the lack of breathing apparatus? And how could a super smart alien (it had an enlarged brain, the examining scientists had said) get himself caught in such a primitive trap? It didn’t add up, as far as I was concerned, to something extraterrestrial, that’s for damn sure.
But what of another possible explanation? In the book “Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer,” we dealt with the existence of the Djinn, a shadowy race of demonic creatures known in the Islamic faith as living in another dimension and for the most part cursing humans and committing dastardly deeds. They often appear as smoke and possess people just like the devil would do in our Western culture. And the thing is, if you compared a picture or illustration of the Djinn, they offer up a reasonable resemblance to the alien baby of Mexico.
And so exactly what is a Djinn (often spelled Jinn)?
Well, we know about the Genie in the bottle from “A Thousand and One Arabian Nights,” but otherwise most of us who are not of the Islamic religion don’t really know the story/nature of the Djinn and who they really are. Easily put into the category of Ultra-Terrestrials, they are not the nicest of entities.
The following is a definition that seems most prevalent . . .
The word “Djinn” translates as anything that is concealed or invisible. The Djinn are a race that has no defined physical form of their own, so they are therefore invisible to the naked eye. However, they are shape shifters who can take on the physical form of just about anything they want. Many say that they walk among us every day.
You will often see smoke when you’re Djinn appears, not because the smoke IS the Djinn, but because it accompanies him/her. It is simply a sign that your Djinn is nearby and ready to communicate, and signifies the presence of energy.
Djinn can also appear with orbs, streaks of light, mists or other kinds of phenomena. It can be a big, awe-inspiring appearance, or a subtle, almost-not-noticed kind of appearance. With Djinn, like people, no two are exactly alike and there are countless ways they may manifest.
Some Djinn will never manifest in any kind of physical form, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t there and watching you. These Djinn will generally communicate with you only during dreams or meditation. They aren’t any more or less powerful than other Djinn, they just choose to present themselves differently. So I took a shot and took the train to Toronto where I lauded my theory of the Djinn.
I am sure this is the first time the subject of aliens versus the Djinn has been discussed on a widely-viewed television program. Of course, my statements were broken up into brief sound bites but I do believe I got the message across to Shatner, as well as his very obliging producers and crew, that all strange looking beings do not have to come from a place far, far away in another galaxy, but might be here living right alongside us. We could almost reach out and touch them . . . and possibly some of us have. The world of Ultra-Terrestrials is a mystifying one, and there is a lot to learn about those that seem flesh and blood one moment but can metamorphose, can alter their shape, size and appearance as well as their density.

Argentina: Thoughts on the Concordia Aerodrome MIB
By Andrea & Silvia Pérez Simondini
Many years have gone by in search of evidence that could give us a minimal glimpse into the reality and existence of the UFO phenomenon and all that the phenomenon entails. The Men-in-Black form part of the stories associated with the UFO phenomenon, and they appear every so often in isolated incidents. There were numerous cases in Argentina in the late 1960s and early ‘70s, resulting in truly interesting cases.
Let me start by telling you as story that affected us closely, since it was an experience that befell my husband, Jorge Pérez Simondini: On one occasion, while performing a audit for the Perez Companc company’s fishing fleet, he came a cross the crewman, or more properly said, the ship’s machinist, who told him that during a personnel transfer trip from the Port of Golfo San Jorge (a broad semi-circular gulf located on the Argentinean Atlantic, in Patagonia facing the waters of the Argentinean Sea) to the YPF undersea drilling platform, halfway there, something got the crew excited, prompting sailors and oil rig personnel to look over the sides of the vessel. One can imagine their surprise when they looked over the side to see a light underwater, running past the ship at high speed. A few kilometers ahead, it broke the surface, rising vertically and swiftly before vanishing into the skies.
The story is in itself remarkable, but what happened days later, when the personnel reached the port with the relief crew, they encountered some men dressed in black waiting to interview each of them, using harsh and intimidating measures, threatening them with job loss should they attempt to share their experiences with others. This story, from 1968, was buried for years and it is the first time it is being told, given the number of years gone bay and the fact that majority of the witnesses died several years ago.
On August 29, 1962, the event that has become known as the “Necochea Incident” took place. The main witness, Osmán Alberto Simonini, saw a UFO and was chased by it along the road linking La Dulce with Necochea as he traveled toward this seaside city.
Senior Officer Juan Jose La Terza investigated this case on the day after the events occurred. He submitted a report on the presence of a strange device, describing the witness as a man “of fine reputation and perfectly reliable in his statements.” He ended his memorandum by certifying the event as a REAL INCIDENT, as told by the witness. It details the sighting of an object, its transit over the countryside, causing physical and/or physiological impact on the witness, the possible chase among other details. This case was investigated by [INEXPLICATA contributing editor] Guillermo Gimenez years later, who interviewed Simonini. The latter was afraid to discuss the events from 1962 because only days after the incident, and the investigation performed by Senior Officer J.J. La Terza, two men dressed in black appeared at his workshop. They warned him to forget all about the event, admonishing not to tell anyone else about it, since something might happen to him. The witness recalls that he was struck by the color of their clothing (black) and the similarity of these garments. They stood approximately 1.70 meters, were dark-haired, “foreign-looking” due to their Eskimo-like features. I wanted to set down these cases as examples, so readers who are encountering this description of the entities for the first time can have an idea that they represent a significant part of many of the stories that come across our desk.
We could define the Men-in-Black (MIB), according to a segment of UFO culture and the work done by UFO researchers, as alleged secret government or non-government agents, in charge of concealing a hypothetical extraterrestrial presence on Earth. It is sometimes understood that the MIB could be the aliens themselves.
Researcher Bill Moore believed that the Men-in-Black formed part of the Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI), an internal security department of the U.S. government established in 1948 and later adapted by the FBI to investigate criminal activities within the USAF and its arms contractors, given that one of AFOSI’s missions it to protect technology, programs and staff against “external threats.”
Hypotheses and theories on the subject are countless and remain so, but beyond marks in fields, lights in the sky and lights in the countryside, and a scattering of (apparently unknown) entity sightings, there is no evidence that attests to their nature.
Today we are facing a case that for the first time (and it is only my personal opinion) makes me consider a possibility, one that has been repeated often, especially in Spiritist circle, that all of these sightings that we see with increasing frequency are not materially before us, but rather in another dimension. I have never perceived this so clearly as in this case. The fact that [the entity] appeared out of nowhere, walked only a few meters from the witnesses, who realized that he could not see them (or their large dog), that it moved robotically as if alone in the world, standing nearly 2.50 meters tall (clearly beyond human height), noticeably white skin, completely dressed in black, bespeaks a character that has little to do with our own reality.
All of these elements, when brought into my analysis, prompted a door to open. Through that door I was able to see things so clearly that not even I could believe it: the fact was that the entity wasn’t really there. It was in another dimension. I don’t know if it was due to the same nature that somehow allows humans to peer into that other world at a given time. Perhaps they bring it about themselves. It has no explanation, as far as I can tell, but I want to express my feelings, because never before – in the vast number of investigations I’ve been on – was I ever as certain of something as I am of this. I’m conveying here as I always do, because communication is also part of my history. it’s a need I feel, to mark the progress I’m making, and above all, to share a vocation that will allow us all to discern the possibility of real evidence. As I said earlier, this has been discussed many times, but never did I feel it or see it as clearly as now. Perhaps Claudia’s testimony made it so clear that I was unable to see it otherwise. Thank you for reading this, even if it’s only a personal truth.
Up to this point we have made available to our readers the various elements that involve sightings of the infamous Men-in-Black, who are in some cases linked with the UFO phenomenon.
While the sighting of the strange being in Concordia does not involve a sighting of any strange aerial craft, its strangeness quotient resides in the entity described by Claudia and her husband in the vicinity of the city’s aerodrome.
Aside from seeing the tall individual (standing 2.50 meters) with a very pale complexion and robotic movements, another of the singular aspects of the case is the observation by witnesses of the airplane [the entity] boarded, carrying two briefcases. However, the witnesses are unable to describe how the airplane vanished, which adds to the high strangeness.
The essential item of information, then, was to confirm the traffic in and out of the aerodrome on that day and time.
Silvia managed to contact Manuel, the operator on duty at the control tower on the day of the event. He confirmed that no aircraft operated in the aerodrome’s vicinity on that day. This is to say, no aircraft had taxied, taken off or landed. None whatsoever, on the date that Claudia claims having had her experience.
However this was not the only source of confirmation. Journalist Matías Hojman of the “Las 5 Patas” program he hosts with Noelia Lage on Fridays from 9 to 12 o’clock on 88.9 Mhz in the city of Concordia, and who brought the case to light, confirmed he had contacted Police Chief Sergio Mendoza requesting Claudia’s contact information, in the likely event that she had made a police report. Faced with a negative reply, Hojman then asked Chief Mendoza about the information he had been able to gather, confirming that no aircraft operated in the region on the day of the event.
This information clarifies and confirms a relevant point. However, it adds to an increase in the high strangeness quotient, especially when faced with a highly reliable witness. Let us hope that we will able to speak with the police chief, who may be able to give us some more precise information.
We would like to thank: Claudia, for coming forth with her experience; researcher Debora Goldstern for her interview with researcher Guillermo Gimenez
http://cronicasubterranea.blogspot.com.ar/; researcher Guillermo Gimenez for his research into the “Necochea Case” http://ar.groups.yahoo.com/group/planeta_ufo; Matías Hojman for making available all his information on the case, and Vicky Zeigler and Martín, Vision Ovni’s Correspondents in Concordia, who made us aware of the earliest information on the case.

- CALLING FROM A WORLD BEYOND DEPARTMENT -
Doctors Testify to Patient's Spirit Return
A case that will challenge skeptics to find a non-spiritual explanation is making headlines in America's media, following the publication of "Real Messages from Heaven" by Faye Aldridge.
When the author's husband, Burke, was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, Faye expected God to perform a miracle. Both she and her husband were devout Christians. "I expressed my faith. I covered him in the word of God. I read the Bible to him every day," she says.
The miracle she expected did not happen. Just 21 days after the diagnosis, 53-year-old Burke passed away. But a different miracle did occur.
Within hours of Burke being pronounced dead at the hospital, two members of the medical team who had treated him received a "visitation" from Burke in their own homes – before they knew that he had passed on. What's more, the men had never met.
The testimonies of oncologist Dr Carl Willis and neurosurgeon Dr Arthur Cushman are included in the book and they have both testified to the occurrence in a TV news report.
Learning that he was in the final stages of cancer, Burke made a promise to his wife that he would find a unique way to reach out to her from heaven.
The website of Channel 4 WSMV.com carries the video of the interview and the headline story, "Woman Says Fax From Husband Proves Afterlife", that stretches the truth somewhat.
She did receive a fax, but it was from the two medical men, telling her of their surprising encounter with the spirit of her dead husband.
Dr Cushman explained: "He was holding his arms up and was surrounded by this light. He said 'This is wonderful – and don't ever worry about dying'."
Dr Willis testified that on seeing Burke: "I pretty well knew what had happened and who it was – it was just amazing."
Faye Aldridge believes her husband chose to appear to the oncologist and neurosurgeon, rather than to her, so that people would believe the story. Her book, "Real Messages From Heaven" tells not only her own remarkable story but "other true stories of miracles, divine intervention and supernatural occurrences".

- SEEKING THE UNKNOWN DEPARTMENT -
Investigating Alaska's Paranormal A Serious Business
Alaska’s a big place, and that means there’s a lot of room for things to hide. We’re not talking about bears or bugs or any other critters roaming the Last Frontier, but rather the less tangible -- the unusual, the undocumented, the supernatural. Alaska has a long history with the paranormal -- from its mythic past full of unusual creatures, to its modern-day infestations with cryptic beasts like Bigfoot and the Lake Iliamna Monster, down to purported alien abductions that became fodder for Hollywood not too long ago.
Some in Alaska are dedicated to tracking down and recording the paranormal in the state, even if it means overcoming skepticism and applying methodology to the paranormal.
Recently, an ad for the Fairbanks region on the popular classified website Craigslist said that it was seeking an individual to train as a paranormal investigator. It was an unusual ad, written with none of the over-the-top silliness that sometimes indicates ads on the site that were created by someone just joking around. Instead, it asked interested applicants to submit a two-page application, consisting of a cover letter and a resume.
“Will train for free over the next two months,” the ad reads. “Must be at least 18, preferably over 21. You will be expected to do research. Be prepared for paperwork.”
The ad is indicative of how the person behind it, 30-year-old Jessie Desmond, approaches paranormal investigation: professionally and seriously.
Desmond is a recent graduate of UAF, holding a degree in history, and currently works at the Fairbanks Community Museum. She’s been investigating the paranormal since she was a teenager, and has worked with several organizations devoted to such investigations. She is a member field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), which examines reported alien sightings and abductions around the world.
When she spoke with Alaska Dispatch in late June, she said that she had “just wrapped up a Bigfoot investigation,” and was preparing to embark on a ghost investigation with the one person who had properly responded to the ad at that point.
Unlike some investigators, Desmond looks into all sorts of unusual accounts, from ghosts to cryptids to UFOs.
“Some (investigators) just want to specialize in one area, like cryptozoologists,” Desmond said. “They’re interested in things like bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, something extinct or mythological. Then you have UFOlogists, who look at UFO activity.”
But Desmond’s inspiration has led her to seek out the inexplicable in all its forms.
“I grew up on a steady diet of ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘X-Files’,” Desmond said. “So my dream was to eventually become like (Fox) Mulder.” Mulder is the protagonist of “The X-Files,” an FBI agent who examines paranormal events wherever they are reported.
According to Desmond, the key to carrying out a successful paranormal investigation is to do it in as official a manner as possible. She’s working on a book about proper ghost investigation techniques.
“There are a lot of how-to books out there,” she said. “This is more than a how-to book. This has what type of equipment to bring, how you use it, how you take readings, how you write a report, what to do with your report.”
She said that by keeping herself detached from the subject, it can help legitimize the investigation, even in the eyes of a skeptic.
“I’m a history major, you know? And we get this big ‘objectivity’ phrase pounded into us for a long time, and really that’s how people are going to take a paranormal investigator seriously -- by being objective and trying to rule out all the possibilities,” Desmond said. “If it’s a nonbeliever, I try to stick directly to the facts.”
That's what Desmond attempted to do recently with that Bigfoot investigation she’d mentioned. She was following up a 2009 report of a Sasquatch sighted in a relatively inhabited area of Fairbanks. According to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, there have been only a few sightings of the rumored creature in the area surrounding the Interior city.
In 2009, a person reported seeing a Bigfoot while driving in the area of a local elementary school. Desmond was curious why such an archetypically secretive creature would be in such a populated area. She said she compiled sightings from several other people, then began looking for explanations for the out-of-place rumors.
That summer saw an abnormally-high rate of forest fires in Alaska, including the vast Minto Flats and Tanana Flats fires, and Desmond theorizes that the fires could have driven the cryptid out of its natural habitat in a less-populated region to the edges of the city.
The goal of any paranormal investigator is to help lend credence to reports of unusual phenomena. Of course, just as some are true believers, others are natural skeptics, and the two may never see eye to eye. But by focusing on video and photographic evidence -- though still very frequently open for debate -- paranormal investigators hope to provide more concrete evidence.
Neelie Ravencast, one of the founding members of the decades-old group Investigation of Paranormal in Alaska (IOPIA), agreed with the use of photography and recordings as the most important tool in a paranormal investigator's arsenal. Neelie and her co-founder have been conducting investigations for more than 20 years in the state -- they also recently took a trip to Fairbanks to look into reported hauntings around the Birch Hill Cemetery with Desmond.
Ravencast and Desmond were excited about that investigation because one photograph, taken by Desmond at the cemetery on May 27, revealed what Desmond referred to as an “apparition.”
As with much paranormal evidence, the photo could be seen as one thing by a believer and explained away by a skeptic. A 2005 Gallup poll revealed that about one-third of Americans believe in ghosts.
Skeptics say that the equipment used by investigators -- typically electronic equipment like still and video cameras, audio recorders, and Electromagnetic Field meters -- actually doesn’t provide any real evidence of spectral activity.
The IOPIA website has a catalog of what are known as Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP), which purport to capture ghosts speaking on audio recorders during Alaska investigations.
The recordings are eerie and certainly sound like the phrases listed with the recordings, but could be interpreted as just feedback; additionally, reading the phrases before listening to the recordings could also introduce some persuasion bias, where the suggestion that the recordings contain voices can lead to some people hearing voices where they might not have before.
But again, as a testament to and reason why belief in the paranormal persists in cultures around the world, the evidence is certainly open for debate. Still, both Desmond and Ravencast asserted that the electronic evidence is among the best a paranormal investigator can ask for.
"Photographs, video, EVPs, those are usually our favorites to get, because they’re actually answering questions or commenting on what we’re doing, or threatening us," Ravencast said.
he said that paranormal investigation has become much more commonplace in the decades she’s been doing it. In the early days, she said, “We’d get thrown out, physically removed from places where we were asking about ghosts. Now, everybody asks us to come to their place.”
Some of the credit for that is due to paranormal investigation reality shows like “Ghost Hunters” and “Paranormal State.” However, Desmond and Ravencast both expressed dislike for such shows, saying that they reveal nothing about the real process of investigation, which more often consists of sifting through hours upon hours of audio and video taken at the site, and hundreds or thousands of photographs.
Other people are also trying to legitimize paranormal phenomena in the eyes of the nonbelievers -- recently, scientists at Oxford University asked for anyone with purported Bigfoot hair or DNA samples to send them in for testing, and even Alaska's Lake Iliamna monster has recently gotten the scientific treatment, as one biologist theorizes that it may be a Pacific sleeper shark adapted to freshwater.
So, for someone who believes in the paranormal -- ghosts, poltergeists, UFOs -- is it ever scary to chase after these supernatural beings? Not for Ravencast.
“I am not scared of anything,” she said, “and people are like, ‘wow’ when they hear that. I’ve had everyone try to scare me. They’ve tried to throw things at me. I just don’t get scared.”
But as long as Alaska remains as big and mysterious as it always has, there should be plenty out there to scare the rest of us.

- THE PURPLE CRABS OF HAWAII DEPARTMENT -
Unknown Purple Creatures Spotted on Hawaii Beaches
Beachgoers in Hawaii have been left mystified after millions of tiny purple creatures, curled up in balls, appeared on the shoreline.
The identity of the strange, pea-sized animals - littered along the beaches of Oahu, Honolulu - has also perplexed marine biologists, who have never seen anything like it.
Most of the crabs, which washed up in the surf over the past few days, were dead or dying.
Experts at Waikiki Aquarium believe they may be the larval stages of the 7-11 crab, a crustacean commonly found in the area, but added there has never been an event like this before.
Norton Chan, a biologist at the aquarium, said: 'What you are seeing is a swimming stage, probably a few more molts before they settle into their crab stage self.'
Researchers are said to be studying those which are still alive to try to find out what they will grow to become.
The little crabs are less than an inch long and, if they are 7-11 crabs, they will eventually grow to around six or seven inches.
'The lifeguard called and asked what these things were because she had reports that surfers were actually having these things crawl up on their boards and onto them,' Mr Chan added.
Meanwhile, one resident told KHON news: 'It's really weird.
'It looks like you want to eat it like a berry.'
Another said: 'When something washes up like this, you don't know what to expect - maybe tsunami stuff.'
The coastline affected stretches from Kahala to Ala Moana on the southern tip of Honolulu.
Dr Andrew Rossiter, director of the Waikiki Aquarium, reckoned that the crabs were washed up after rough seas left air bubbles in their shells, leaving them unable to dive.
As a result of this, they get caught up in tides and come ashore.
'It could be a flux of warm or cold water coming in but I don't have any signs of that,' Dr Rossiter told Hawaii News Now.
He added: 'And if it was pollution, it would have affected other species as well, so we really don't know [why this is happening].'

- I AM NOT A HUMAN, I AM A GOAT DEPARTMENT -
"Goatman" Spotted on Utah Mountain
A series of photos of what appear to be a man near a herd of goats while donning an elaborate goat suit are baffling wildlife officials who wish to speak with the mystery man - or woman.
The photos, first posted to the image-sharing website Imgur.com, show what looks like a person in the white suit, crawling on all fours near Ben Lomond Peak in Weber County, Utah.
The state Department of Wildlife Resources says it is yet to determine who the person is and what exactly what they are up to.
Phil Douglas, a DWR official, told Fox 13: 'I've been trying to figure out… It could be that they were trying to get photographs. Could be that they were scouting out for a hunt to see what the complexity of the herd is.'
Douglas said that hikers have come forward to say that they've spotted the person too, and he is concerned that the person could be endangering his or her life by being so close to the real goats.'
He told Fox 13: 'There have been reports of people who have been killed or injured by goats.
There’s a hunt that’s coming up in September. Certainly don’t want anyone out in a goat suit at that time.'
Coty Creighton claims he’s the hiker who took the photos near the Ben Lomond Peak, which is home to a variety of animals, including moose, deer and mountain goats.
In emails to local news outlets, he said he came upon the strange site on Sunday morning.
He told the Utah Standard-Examiner that he knew something was odd about the 'goat' from the get-go.
Creighton told the paper in an email: 'I thought it was a deformed goat. It was clumsy, not nimble… He was on his hands and knees, crawling along the mountainside.'
In a separate email to Salt Lake City's CityWeekly.net, Creighton said: 'I was racking my brain trying to figure out what other type of animal it could be. An albino bear? Honky Sasquatch?'
But when he took out a pair of binoculars, he realised that the creature wasn’t a goat at all, but a man wearing what appeared to be a custom-made goat suit, complete with horns.
He said that after about 20 minutes of taking his picture, the goat man realised he was being watched and began creepily watching Creighton.
He said: 'He stayed on his hands and knees and stared back.'
He thought it best not to approach the goat man, telling the Standard-Examiner: 'Something was definitely off with that guy.'
