Jennie McGrath:
Bilderberger meeting in Weisbaden, Germany.

PROJECT AQUARIUS begun. The project was funded by CIA funds (non-appropriated). The project assumed full responsibility for investigation and intelligence of UFOs and/or IACs, after December 1969 when PROJECTS GRUDGE and BLUE BOOK were closed. The purpose of PROJECT AQUARIUS was to collect all scientific, technological, medical and intelligence information from UFO and IAC sightings and contacts with Alien Life Forms. These orderly files of collected information have been used to advance the United States Air Force Space Program (not NASA).

A "Skunk Ape" is sighted near El Fers, Florida.

In one particularly notable case of ball lightning, a woman named Kitty Cox was out walking her dog in Scotland when following a lightning strike she witnessed what she described as a "luminous orange ball" drifting towards her. The ball went past her very rapidly, and was said to be "hissing" with electrical charge.

Dr. James E. McDonald, an atmospheric physicist, comes to the forefront of UFOlogy.

A high-altitude U2 spy plane went missing over Cuba. Apparently the mission took the plane south over the tip of Florida and then high over Cuba. When the plane failed to make an expected course change the alarm was raised, but the pilot could not be contacted. Instead the plane continued to fly in a southerly direction before crashing in Bolivia. The official version of events referred to a catastrophic failure of the oxygen supply, that if true would certainly have led to a life threatening situation within no more than a couple of seconds. On the face of it this would appear to be the likeliest explanation. However there were other factors involved. As the stricken aircraft was being tracked over Panama, the local Air Rescue Center, noted that a high flying unidentified object was in close proximity to the spy-plane. Whether this object played any part in the crash is almost impossible to say. What we do know is that an altered state of awareness is a frequent accompaniment of UFO encounters. Perception, acuity, and a true sense of time and direction can all become radically impaired. If the pilot of the U2 was similarly affected, then he might well have drifted on oblivious to his peril or the frantic attempts being made to contact him.

January 19--George Pedley finds a "saucer nest" at Horseshoe Lagoon Near Tully, Far North Queensland, Australia. Up to five landing spots for UFOs were found in a marsh.

March--A series of well-publicized sightings around Ann Arbor, Michigan trigger an upsurge in UFO interest. Eventually this interest results in the Condon Committee. Professor J. Allen Hynek offers his famous "Swamp Gas Theory" as one possible explanation for some of the sightings and is widely ridiculed by the media.

March 21--In Hillsdale County, Michigan, witnesses reported a strange bright glowing object bouncing across a nearby hollow and then became airborne. Soil analysis showed that in the area that the object was seen, radiation levels were higher than in the surrounding terrain. More significant still was the finding that the ground was also contaminated with boron, the element used to slow nuclear chain reactions.

March 25--In Toledo, Ohio, two Lucas County deputies, Robert Schultz and Stanley Nelepa, reported seeing a huge object floating at treetop level.

March 29--A glowing orange object was seen floating over the Ohio Turnpike administration building in Berea, Ohio. The glowing orange object was spotted a second time the next day, by Berea patrolmen Clarence T. Janowick and John R. Galik Jr.

April 17--Law officers chase a UFO from Ohio into Pennsylvania.

June 17--Near the town of Elista in the north Caucasus region of Russia, a UFO was seen to explode and fall to the ground.

September 13--Astronaut/Commander Pete Conrad Jr. while aboard NASA docking and orbital flight of Gemini 11, photographed a mysterious cluster of lights from his port window, the first of several Astronaut sightings and photos of UFOs outside of earth's atmosphere. The photo has been widely debunked as being nothing more than a satellite in a decaying orbit, glowing brightly from re-entry and there are no comments regarding the image from Conrad himself, now deceased.

November 13--In Zanesville, Ohio, local barber and amateur astronomer Ralph Ditter took two spectacular UFO photos. Beyond their detail, which to some skeptics is evidence itself of fraud, the importance of the photos lies in their similarity to the craft reported during a series of sightings that occurred throughout the year.

November 15--The mysterious winged creature known as "Mothman" begins a year-long series of appearances around Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Over the next year, there were around one hundred sightings of the creature, along with UFO sightings, poltergeist activity, and other weird phenomena in the area. Some of the witnesses reported being harassed by Men In Blacks.

1967

Winthrop Rockefeller elected governor of Arkansas.

The Shepton Mallet Prison ghost is sighted in Somerset, England.

A hat-shaped UFO seen near Yorba Linda, California.

A classic of mystery of Bermuda Triangle. The ship Witchcraft at the harbor entrance vanished within 19 minutes between her call to the Coast Guard and their arrival on scene.

Ghost horseman sighted near Denton, Lincolnshire.

PROJECT OFTEN/CHICKWIT was initiated by the Army Chemical Corps and the CIA's Office of Research and Development to create new drug compounds "that could be used offensively." Hallucinogens were tested on inmates in Pennsylvania, but very little is known about the experiments. CIA documents mention "several laboratory accidents" in which a drug designated as EA-3167 produced "prolonged psychotic effects in laboratory personnel".

Dr Felix Zigel, of the Moscow Aviation Institute, says publicly, "We appeal to all viewers to send us details of any observations of strange flying craft. This is a serious challenge to Science, and we need the help of all Soviet citizens."

The Air Force commissions the University of Colorado to study the UFO phenomenon. Headed by Dr. Edward Condon, the project becomes known as The Condon Study. A Man In Black, Mr. Dixsun, allegedly visits Professor Condon and offers to help him contact the space people.

Rex Heflin again visited by MIB in connection with his photos of California UFOs.

Bilderberger meeting in Cambridge, England.

CIA's "Operation Phoenix", which will assassinate and torture over 40,000 people in Vietnam is launched.

Beginning of CIA's $21 million rainmaking program over Indochina, which will make 2,600 sorties by 1972.

Military takeover of Greece allegedly executed by secret "Operation Prometheus".

Jim Thompson, ex-OSS commando and "Silk King of Thailand," disappears on Easter Sunday. Five months later his sister is murdered.

John King, working with the Bangor, Maine Police Department, suddenly saw above him a very bright object with a dark underside. He fired at it four times, hearing the bullets hit a metal surface as the object flew off.

In Beverly, Massachusetts, a child saw a blinding, multicolored source of light making a buzzing sound as it flew over the road 15 m away from the house. It seemed to land in a field near the school. Three adults came out to calm the child and also saw the object circling and hovering. They called the police. Two officers arrived and saw the object appearing to "dance" with two other craft. All witnesses then observed the arrival of one helicopter and two aircraft, as the remaining object flew away to the southwest. Police described the object as plate-shaped when stationary above the school building. TV reception was blurred throughout the observation.

In Bellingham, Massachusetts, two women saw a 20 meter cigar-shaped object, with bright, red lights at both ends, flying erratically. It made a whistling sound when moving, was silent when hovering. The lights began flashing and the object went down behind some trees when five planes and a helicopter came over the area. Two of the aircraft circled the location, then flew on. The whistling sound was again heard, but the object was not seen after the departure of the planes.

Patrolman Herbert Schirmer sees a UFO take off from Ashland, Nebraska. Later, under hypnosis, he describes an abduction experience. First of the "silent contactees."

Che Guevara is killed in Bolivia after CIA questioning.

Kennedy Deaths: Jack Ruby, whose lawyers charged Dallas authorities with neglecting his health, died of cancer while awaiting retrial; David Ferrie, who was to be a key witness in the trial of Clay Shaw, found dead in his locked apartment in New Orleans, ruled suicide though how the ruptured blood vessel which induced his brain hemorrhage could be self-inflicted was unexplained; Eladio del Valle (a friend of Ferrie's, and who flew bombing missions with him over Cuba) is shot through the head in Miami the same day Ferrie died; Dr. Mary Sherman (another friend of Ferrie's) is shot in New Orleans and her body partially burned by her killer.

Beginning of the Clay Shaw trial; New Orleans DA Jim Garrison subpoenas Allan Dulles and ex-CIA employee Gordon Novel to testify, but neither does.

Congressional Legislation forced the Kennedy family to turn over all materials pertaining to the assassination to the National Archives.

JFKs brain is missing.

Oregon logger Glenn Thomas sees three big hairy figures digging for rodents near Round Mountain.

The "Patterson/Gimlin" film is by far the most famous and most scrutinized footage ever taken of Bigfoot. Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin shot the footage with a 16mm camera while on an expedition to find the elusive creature in the Bluff Creek area of the Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California. Large footprints had been found in this region in previous years. Debate among various “experts” over the authenticity of the film has been ongoing for 30 years. In recent years, some people have come forward to claim that they participated in the hoaxing of the film, but even their testimony has been called into question.

A Money Pit exploratory group brings up oak buds, fragments of 16th century wood and a piece of antique brass.

January--In the southwest part of Missouri, a Mr. Loftin found a 40-inch disc and gave it to the U.S. Testing Company for analysis.

March--Two Cuban Mig-21 jets intercepted a UFO within Cuban airspace. The Flight Leader reported object to be a metallic sphere with no wings or tail. After a failed attempt to radio the object for ID, Cuban GCI ordered the MiGs to shoot the object down. Flight Leader responded his weapons were armed and he was locked on. His wingman then screamed into the radio that the leader's MiG had exploded--no flame or smoke, but he just disintegrated. Immediately afterwards the UFO accelerated, climbed to 30,000 feet altitude, and headed for South America.

March 16-- At the Malmstrom ICBM base in central Montana, Captain Eric Carlson and First Lieutenant Walt Figel, the Echo-Flight Missile Combat Crew, were below ground in the E-Flight Launch Control Center (LCC) or capsule. The Echo Flight LCC was located between Winfred and Hilger, about fifteen miles north of Lewistown. Missile maintenance crews and security teams were camped out at two of the Launch Facilities (LFs), having performed some work during the previous day and stayed there overnight. During the early morning hours, more than one report came in from the security patrols and maintenance crews that they had seen UFOs. A UFO was reported directly above one of the E-Flight (LF) or silos. It turned out that at least one security policeman was so affected by this encounter that he never again returned to missile security duty. Around 8:30 a.m., Figel, the Deputy Crew Commander (DMCCC), was briefing Carlson, the Crew Commander (MCCC), on the flight status when the alarm horn sounded. One of the Minuteman missiles they supervised had gone off alert (become inoperable). It was one of the two sites where maintenance crews had camped out on site. Upset, thinking that the maintenance personnel had failed to notify him as required by procedure when maintenance work is done on a missile, that the missile was going "off-alert" status, Figel immediately called the missile site. When Figel spoke with the on-site security guard, he reported that they had not yet performed any maintenance that morning. He also stated that a UFO had been hovering over the site. Figel recalls thinking the guard must have been drinking something. However, now other missiles started to go off alert in rapid succession. Within seconds, the entire flight of ten ICBMs was down. All of their missiles reported a "No-Go" condition. One by one across the board, each missile had became inoperable. When the checklist procedure had been completed for each missile site, it was discovered that each of the missiles had gone off alert status due to a Guidance and Control (G&C) System fault. Power had not been lost to the sites; the missiles simply were not operational because, for some unexplainable reason, each of their guidance and control systems had malfunctioned. Two Security Alert Teams (SAT, "strike teams") were dispatched from Echo to those sites where the maintenance crews were present. Figel had not informed the strike teams that one of the on-site guards had reported a UFO. On arrival at the LF's, the SAT reported back to that UFOs had been seen hovering over each of the two sites by all of the maintenance and security personnel present at each site. Captain Don Crawford's crew relieved the Echo Flight crew later that morning. Crawford recalls that both Carlson and Figel were still visibly shaken by what had occurred. Crawford also recalled that the maintenance crews worked on the missiles the entire day and late into the night during his shift to bring them all back on alert. Not only had missiles been lost to our deterrent forces, but had remained out of service for an entire day. Because of this unique incident, as an ex-Missileer describes it: "All Hell broke loose!" Among the many calls to and from the E-Flight LCC one was to the MCCC of Oscar-Flight which links to the equally dramatic story of what happened in another LCC that same morning. The Oscar Flight LCC was located a mile or two south of the town of Roy, about 20 miles southeast of the Echo-Flight LCC. The following is as told by Robert Salas who was the DMCCC in O-Flight that morning: My recollection is that I was on duty as a Deputy Missile Combat Crew Commander below ground in the LCC, during the morning hours of 16 March 1967. Outside, above the subterranean LCC capsule, it was a typical clear, cold Montana night sky; there were a few inches of snow on the ground. Where we were, there were no city lights to detract from the spectacular array of stars, and it was not uncommon to see shooting stars. Montana isn't called "Big Sky Country" for no reason, and Airmen on duty topside probably spent some of their time outside looking up at the stars. It was one of those airmen who first saw what at first appeared to be a star begin to zig-zag across the sky. Then he saw another light do the same thing, and this time it was larger and closer. He asked his Flight Security Controller, (FSC, the Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in charge of Launch Control Center site security), to come and take a look. They both stood there watching the lights streak directly above them, stop, change directions at high speed and return overhead. The NCO ran into the building and phoned me at my station in the underground capsule. He reported to me that they had been seeing lights making strange maneuvers over the facility, and that they weren't aircraft. I replied: "Great. You just keep watching them and let me know if they get any closer." I did not take this report seriously and directed him to report back if anything more significant happened. At the time, I believed this first call to be a joke. Still, that sort of behavior was definitely out of character for air security policemen whose communications with us were usually very professional. A few minutes later, the security NCO called again. This time he was clearly frightened and was shouting his words: "Sir, there's one hovering outside the front gate!" "One what?" "A UFO! It's just sitting there. We're all just looking at it. What do you want us to do?" "What? What does it look like?" "I can't really describe it. It's glowing red. What are we supposed to do?" "Make sure the site is secure and I'll phone the Command Post." "Sir, I have to go now, one of the guys just got injured." Before I could ask about the injury, he was off the line. I immediately went over to my commander, Lt. Fred Meiwald, who was on a scheduled sleep period . I woke him and began to brief him about the phone calls and what was going on topside. In the middle of this conversation, we both heard the first alarm klaxon resound through the confined space of the capsule, and both immediately looked over at the panel of annunciator lights at the Commander's station. A 'No-Go' light and two red security lights were lit indicating problems at one of our missile sites. Fred jumped up to query the system to determine the cause of the problem. Before he could do so, another alarm went off at another site, then another and another simultaneously. Within the next few seconds, we had lost six to eight missiles to a 'No-Go' (inoperable) condition. After reporting this incident to the Command Post, I phoned my security guard. He said that the man who had approached the UFO had not been injured seriously but was being evacuated by helicopter to the base. Once topside, I spoke directly with the security guard about the UFOs. He added that the UFO had a red glow and appeared to be saucer shaped. He repeated that it had been immediately outside the front gate, hovering silently. We sent a security patrol to check our LFs after the shutdown, and they reported sighting another UFO during that patrol. They also lost radio contact with our site immediately after reporting the UFO. When we were relieved by our scheduled replacement crew later that morning. The missiles had still not been brought on line by on-site maintenance teams. Again, UFOs had been sighted by security personnel at or about the time Minuteman Strategic missiles shutdown.

May 20--Stephen Michalak is burned by a UFO near Falcon Lake Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada.

Summer--The wave of apparitions which stunned Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Uruguay with over 110 UFO sightings in a space of 24 hours on June 24th alone, was preceded by a singular Men In Black event. Four days prior to the June 24th "night of lights", a man dressed in black showed up at the newsroom of Cordoba, Argentina's Los Principios daily, where he dropped off a letter addressed to the editor stating that before the week was out, the Southern Cone would experience a massive fly-over involving hundreds of extraterrestrial craft. The day before the sightings began, the newspaper received a strange phone call stating: "Attention, it will begin at any moment..." The UFO flap began almost immediately, but the strange MIB remained anonymous.

Summer-- During the summer of 1967, near Middletown, Ohio, a huge bird was sighted flying over several farms. Mr. James Morgan told me that the creature had a wingspan from about 15-20 feet and was dark in color. His description was that of a pterodactyl. Four other witnesses saw the bird as it glided over their porch...

June--Astronauts Ed White (first American to walk in space) and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird-looking metallic object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have never been released.

Jennie McGrath:
July--A Dutch multi-national businessman was contacted in the Oostscheld, below Amsterdam, by extraterrestrial beings who said they came from a place called Iarga, some 11 light years from our sun as we calculate distance. They were observing us from underwater and they allowed this man to visit the spacecraft in its underwater location.

July 20--A huge cigar-shaped vehicle was reported emerging from the sea and into space in the log of the Argentine ship Naviero off the coast of Brazil. The officers and crew could see a shining object in the sea no more that 50 feet away from the starboard side. It was cigar-shaped and about 110 feet in length and emitted a powerful blue and white glow. It ran silently and without wake through the water. There was no periscope or conning tower or any protruding parts to this mysterious submarine. It paced the Naviero for 15 minutes, then suddenly dived and passed beneath the ship and vanished rapidly into the great depths.

August 17--Cube-shaped object weighing about three tons found 50 miles from Kutum, Sudan. No markings. Samples cut with difficulty. Photographed by the authorities. Satellite or crashed UFO?

September--Animal mutilations begun near Alamosa, Colorado. "Snippy" the horse, the first "mute" is found dead with the skin and flesh stripped from his head and neck and no blood in the carcass or on the ground.

October--A massive UFO wave engulfed the British Isles following reports that two Devon police officers had chased a "star-spangled flying cross" in their patrol car at speeds approaching 90 mph.

October 4--Something crashes into the sea at Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia. It was hovering just over the water and gyrating in an erratic manner. It then tilted to one side and fell into the water. Lights could still be seen after it submerged but soon afterwards they blinked out. It seems that the UFO then left the area after submerging. It traveled underwater to a place about twenty-five miles away called Government Point, near the site of a submarine detection facility. The witnesses, searching for a logical explanation, thought some sort of conventional aircraft must have crashed so they reported it to the authorities. It was detected there, and a small group of naval vessels was positioned over it. After several days, just when a salvage operation was being considered, it was joined by a second underwater UFO, which some said seemed to have come to repair the first UFO. The decision was made by the Navy to just watch and wait. After about a week, some of the naval vessels were forced to leave in order to investigate a Russian submarine that had entered Canadian waters, and at that point, the two UFOs began to move. They headed underwater toward the Gulf of Maine, and when they had outdistanced the remaining naval vessels, they broke the surface of the water and vanished into the sky at high speed.

December 15--The "Silver Bridge", a suspension bridge between Ohio and West Virginia at Point Pleasant, WV collapsed during rush hour. Forty-six cars plunged into the cold waters of the Ohio River, and fifty lives were lost. It's said that many of those who were killed were those who had seen the Mothman.

1968

The "Roush Hearings", a strongly pro-UFO seminar, is held in Washington, D.C. This is James. E. McDonald's high point, and the nearest thing to a Congressional investigation of UFOs that has ever taken place.

A UFO crashed on Kolguev Island north of the Arhangelsk region of Russia. Transported to the Odintsove base.

Archaeologists exploring burial chambers, tunnels, and catacomb-cities (several of which are linked together at the lower levels) near Derinkuya, Turkey, had reached a depth of about 900 feet when they were suddenly attacked by a group of seven-foot tall albino-haired troglodydes. One team member was killed and another was hospitalized for several months, and all had serious wounds.

Kennedy Deaths: RFK is killed in Los Angeles (shot in the back of the head from a gun in front of him. Sirhan Sirhan, who wounded Kennedy in the shoulder pad, still doesn't remember what happened but perhaps security guard Eugene Cesar, who carried the same caliber gun as Sirhan, does; Kennedy was shot in the back of the head at close range--Cesar was close behind him, Sirhan several feet in front; a "girl in the polka dot dress," who earlier had been seen with Sirhan, reportedly leaves the scene saying "We've shot him!". Dr. Nicholas Chetta (who performed the autopsies on Ferrie and Dr. Sherman) died of a heart attack. Richard Carr (JFK assassination witness who is about to appear in Shaw Trial) learns that police have arrested a man planning to kill him.

A dark seven-foot tall creature was observed by workers in London's New Victoria tube line.

Dr. Curt Strand at the Soder Hospital in Stockholm begins implanting "brain transmitters" into human beings. These eventually are able to, via RHIC (Radio-Hypnotic Intracerebral Control), EDOM (Electronic Dissolution of Memory) and ESB (Electronic Stimulation of Brain), give total control over the people into whom they have been inserted.

MJ-12 becomes known as the "50 Committee".

Apollo 8 photographs UFO Moon base.

April 4--Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee. James Earl Ray begins international travels thanks to "Raoul" who sounds very much like his younger brother Jerry Ray; FBI begins search for Ray as lone assassin, ignoring considerable evidence of a conspiracy with Ray as patsy--including reports of the mysterious "sausage and eggs man" who was seen in the neighborhood of King's motel with a rifle before and after the murder. Following the ML King assassination, black leader Ron Karenga meets secretly with California Governor Reagan and later with Los Angeles police chief Thomas Reddin. Spiro Agnew's law-n-order handling of riots following King's assassination brings him to national attention. Agnew allegedly chosen for Nixon's vice-president to obtain CIA and Greek oil and shipping firms' contributions.

Summer--Near the demilitarized zone in Vietnam there was a series of sightings which set off "quite a battle with an Australian destroyer taking severe damage".

August--The famous "Cobrea Case", which took place in the eponymous city in Argentina's Santa Fe province, captured the attention of that country's media. During several days in August, witnesses observed strange lights moving around the sky and no less enigmatic reflections being seen in the remotest areas of the wilderness. Local residents were surprised to find considerable amounts of burnt grass and earth with huge toadstools growing around them. Several animals--small dairy cattle--also turned up dead, apparently as a result of radiation exposure. Nonetheless, the most interesting experience was that of the Rodriguez family, who witnessed a Jeep carrying four men (two of them dressed in blue coveralls, the other two dressed in black) drive along the only access road to the property. One of the men asked the landowner where they could find an exit, and the startled Mr. Rodriguez asked them how had they gotten there in the first place. There were, in fact, no tire-marks on the ground, nor had the barbed-wire fence surrounding the perimeter been cut. The owners of neighboring fields later told police that they had not allowed the transit of such outlandish characters and their vehicle through their own fields. Curiously enough, after the Jeep-driving MIBs departed, UFO activity in the area came to a complete halt.

September 5--Tetrahedral shaped object picked up on Spanish Air Force radar and seen visually from ground by thousands near Madrid. F-104 scrambled from Torrejon AB to intercept but pilot reported he was at 50,000 feet and had a visual and radar lock but the UFO moved higher to 90,000 feet and then disappeared.

December 25--Houston Mission control sat in silence for six agonizing minutes as Apollo 8 encountered a "bogey" that was a glowing sphere. Jim Lovell then told Houston in an attempt at a joke that he knew now that Santa Claus existed.

1969

CIA-linked Professor Thomas Rika disappears from Boulder, Colorado.

Walter Andrus and a group of followers leave APRO to form MUFON.

Two local people (Duncan McDonell and William Simpson) were fishing in Loch Morar, northwest of Fort William along the west coast near Mallaig, Scotland. Suddenly they saw a long creature approaching their boat at great speed. It rammed them, and fearing they were to be capsized, the terrified fisher-folk started shooting. The beast disappeared into the depths of the loch but left them with the impression that it was between 20 and 30-feet long and had three humps. Nessie's lesser known cousin?

The wife of Pennsylvania's Clinton County sheriff John Bovle, while sitting in front of the couple's cabin in remote Little Pine Creek, saw an enormous gray-colored bird land in the middle of the creek. A few moments later it rose to fly away, and "its wingspread," she said, "appeared to be as wide as the streambed, which I would say was about 75 feet--making the creature truly otherworldly. That same summer three men claimed to have seen a thunderbird snatch up a 15-pound fawn near Kettle Creek.

It is rumored that when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were out in space they spoke to NASA on a secure channel describing brilliant orbs lined up above the moon watching them.

Eleven witnesses see a daylight disc UFO hover over a farm in Anolaima, Colombia.

A theory that suggests that the moon is a large hollow sphere. Backed up by little evidence, but still regarded by some as a possibility, the hollow moon theory originated during seismological tests on the moon following the Lunar landings. This occurred most notably in November, 1969, after seismometers were set up on the moon's surface by the astronauts of Apollo 12. When the Lunar module had taken off, heading back to earth the astronauts discarded the ascent stage of the lunar module, dropping it on the moon's surface, smashing the craft and creating a tremor that was picked up by the seismometers. When the NASA scientists heard the data stream, they couldn’t believe what they were hearing. The moon was ringing like a bell and continued to do so for around an hour. After they had had a chance to analyze the seismological information, NASA declared that the moon seemed to be a hollow sphere with a metallic layer around 34-40 meters deep.

PROJECT GRUDGE/BLUEBOOK is closed.

PROJECT AQUARIUS is established.

(Date Uncertain) A huge underground joint CIA/alien base is built northwest of Dulce, NM (and Kirkland?). The entrance to the base is on Mount Archuleta (also called Archuleta Mesa), on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation. The base gets water and power from a dam on the Navajo River, and expels waste water back into the Navajo River. The base is set up so that the U.S. government has control of the upper levels, and the aliens control the lower levels. It is to this base that the majority of abductees are taken and slaughtered.

A confrontation broke out between the Soviets and Americans at the secret joint lunar base. The Soviets attempted to take control of the base and held American scientists and personnel hostage We were able to restore order but not before 66 people were killed. The Soviets were suspended from the program for a period of two years. A reconciliation eventually took place and once again we began to interact.

January--The final report of the Condon Study is issued. It concludes that there is not enough scientific evidence to justify the continued study of UFOs, ending all official Air Force interest in the subject. The Condon Report is the final blow to PROJECT BLUEBOOK and it is shut down.

January 6--While Jimmy Carter was the governor of Georgia, he sighted a UFO. He filed a report with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. The report explained that there was a large, bright object in the sky. It moved toward him from a distance, stopped, moved away, and then departed. It had a blue color at first, then it turned reddish. It wasn't really a solid figure, it was more like a light. The object looked the size of the moon. It was about 300-1000 miles away and was about 30 degrees above the horizon. Robert Sheaffer, a scientist that works for the government believes that Jimmy Carter really saw Venus, but Carter denies that. He even signed a paper that states that he encountered a UFO.

March--UFO crash at Yekatrinburg (formerly Sverdlovsky), Russia. From this has emerged very impressive official Soviet film footage of both the crashed disc and the autopsy of the remains of the inhabitant of the craft. The only major unanswered question is whether the crash is of an ET craft or one that was terrestrially manufactured. The original presence of a formation of five craft, and the autopsy of the ET body would seem to indicate the former assumption, though the body could also have been a terrestrial clone of a recovered ET body.

June 9---Dr. D.M. McArtor, then Deputy Director of Research and Technology for the Department of Defense, appeared before the House Subcommittee on Appropriations to request funding for a project to produce a synthetic biological agent for which humans have not yet acquired a natural immunity. Dr. McArtor asked for $10 million dollars to produce this agent over the next 5-10 years. The Congressional Record reveals that according to the plan for the development of this germ agent, the most important characteristic of the new disease would be "that it might be refractory (resistant) to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease". AIDS first appeared as a public health risk ten years later.

August-- Earl Morrison, who served with the First Marine Division in Vietnam, while stationed near Da Nang, he and two other guards reportedly saw an extraordinary sight just after 1 o'clock in the morning. They were sitting atop a bunker and talking when they noticed something approaching them in the sky. Morrison stated: "We saw what looked like wings, like a bat's, only it was gigantic compared to what a regular bat would be. After it got close enough so we could see what it was, it looked like a woman. A naked woman. She was black. Her skin was black, her body was black, the wings were black, everything was black. But it glowed. It glowed in the night-kind of a greenish cast to it.... She started going over us, and we still didn't hear anything. She was right above us, and when she got over the top of our heads, she was maybe six or seven feet up.... We watched her go straight over the top of us, and still she didn't make any noise flapping her wings. She blotted out the moon once that's how close she was to us. And dark-looked like pitch black then, but we could still define her because she just glowed. Real bright like. And she started going past us straight towards our encampment. As we watched her-she had got about 10 feet or so away from us-we started hearing her wings flap. And it sounded, you know, like regular wings flapping. And she just started flying off and we watched her for quite a while. Morrison thought the covering on her skin was more like fur than feathers. "The skin of her wings looked like it was molded on to her hands," he said, and the movement of her arms suggested they had no bones in them.

August 31-- Over New South Wales, Australia, a RAAF Canberra from Amberley chased an object reported "like a metallic Zeppelin" hovering low over several towns and farms. UFO then played "cat and mouse" with the Canberra before accelerating away from the bomber.

Wanda Lockwood of Bakersfield, California reported that she was playing with her son in his bedroom when what sounded like a large steel hammer struck the concrete basement floor 3 times. Her child Danny was so surprised that he began to cry. Having heard a similar noise several months earlier beneath her living room, Wanda was curious and put her ear to the bedroom floor and clearly heard "the roar of machinery". She took a hammer and began to pound the bedroom (basement?) floor in a 1-2-3, 1-2-3 manner until 5 minutes later a "being" beneath the floor began to tap back in the same 1-2-3, 1-2-3 manner. She could hear a series of noises and knocks and then she faintly heard men talking to each other, but the voices were too muffled to understand. In later months she would again hear the machinery when placing her ear to the floor, but never again the men's voices.

Probably the most interesting Yeti sighting by a Westerner took place on Mount Annapurna in 1970. The witness, prominent British mountaineer Don Whillans, was looking for a campsite one evening when odd cries sounded. His Sherpa companion said they were a yeti's call, and Whillans caught a glimpse of a dark figure on a distant ridge. The next day he found humanlike tracks sunk 18 inches into the snow, and that night, sensing the creature's presence, he looked out of his tent and saw, in the moonlight, an ape-shaped animal as it plucked at tree branches. He watched it for 20 minutes through binoculars before it wandered away.

January--Four Gallup, New Mexico, youths allegedly encountered what they called a "werewolf" along the side of a road near Whitewater. It managed to pace with their car, which was traveling at 45 miles per hour. One witness reported, "It was about five feet seven, and I was surprised it could go so fast. At first I thought my friends were playing a joke on me, but when I found out they weren't, I was scared! We rolled up the windows real fast and locked the doors of the car. I started driving faster, about 60, but it was hard because that highway has a lot of sharp turns. Someone finally got a gun out and shot it. I know it got hit and it fell down, but there was no blood. I know it couldn't be a person because people cannot move that fast."

January 7-- Two Finnish ski enthusiasts reportedly encountered a mysterious luminous red "cloud" which, when it got within 50 feet of them, turned out to contain a smoke-spewing domed disc at its center. The object hovered near them, and in the light it cast, they could see a three-foot tall humanoid with a waxy, pale face and a hooklike nose but no visible eyes. The creature was standing on the ground just under the UFO. After about 20 seconds the red fog reappeared suddenly, and by the time it dissipated, both the object and the being were gone.

April--The central Siberian uplands north of Olekminsk have been the source of numerous UFO reports, including a massive "wave" or scare that erupted in early 1970, involving disappearances of animals and humans, including one entire village. A Soviet supersonic bomber disappeared without a trace in the area on April 24, 1970, provoking a 150 plane rescue search (many of these reported gigantic space craft hovering so high that they were out of range). Soviet reconnaissance planes appeared in the skies, relentlessly photographing every inch of the terrain. Chinese citizens were terrorized by UFOnauts disguised as Russian cosmonauts and Russian citizens reported landings of Chinese or Oriental appearing UFO pilots. This confusion might have led (intentionally on the part of the "aliens"?) to World War III between China and Russia since the phenomena did result in some border clashes between the two superpowers. Reports state, "On April 29th (1970) inhabitants of these areas were awe struck as a gigantic Soviet aerial armada consisting if bombers and fighter planes passed overhead en route to a rendezvous near the desert region. This area was bombarded for hours and literally blasted from the face of the earth... reliable sources report that a secret flying saucer base was systematically liquidated... consisting of hundreds of miles of underground tunnels and dozens of 'pyramid-like structures' throughout the area."

May--William S. English was an officer with US Army Special Forces in Vietnam. His A-Team was dispatched to locate, and if possible rescue the crew of a B-52 bomber that had crashed in dense jungle in Laos. Air Force records have no B-52 crashing in Southeast Asia between July 1969 and July 1972. This could be because the records were altered to hide the truth from the public. The plane had crashed after a hostile encounter with a UFO described as a large white light. English and his team located the B-52 by helicopter. It was lying among the trees as if it had been placed there. There was no damage at all to the aircraft, its bomb load, or the jungle. All the crew was onboard, in their seats, horribly mutilated, although there was no blood anywhere. Dog tags were taken from the bodies and code books removed and the aircraft was blown up, the bombs still being onboard. The tale of William S. English is one of conspiracy. He saw a B-52 downed by a UFO and the military then spent the next twenty years first trying to discredit him then to eliminate him to try to conceal the truth.

Due to the constant encroachment of white settlers or invaders into their territory, 30,000 survivors of the Ugha Mongulala tribe in Peru allegedly escaped to an ancient system of underground cities, consisting of 13 separate subterranean complexes all connected by tunnels, one of which is said to extend to Lima, and others of which are located throughout the Andes Mountain range of Peru. The Ugha Mongulala's ancestors were allegedly part of a vast empire which covered South America in ancient times. Some of these ancient people, the chief claimed, left the planet in aerial vessels to explore other parts of the solar system and beyond, leaving behind vast subterranean cities beneath the Andes mountains and western Brazil.

Hunt is hired by the White House to gather damaging evidence against Daniel Ellsberg, Edward Kennedy and other "enemies". Hunt hires Barker and other Bay of Pigs veterans to make a break in at Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office. Barker attempts to get plans to building that will house the Democratic Convention. Plumber Chief David Young, former Kissinger aide, contacts CIA for a psychiatric profile of Ellsberg. He is referred to Howard Osborn, a possible Oswald link. White House agent Segretti meets with FBI, Minutemen and others to plan kidnapping of radicals during the 1972 Convention, a plan later scrapped.

Williamsburg has been particularly effective for discussing Vietnam, or the Indonesian corruption, or supposedly non-existent Japanese exchange controls. Different experiences of trade with China and Russia, or how Singapore has a lower infant mortality than America, have been some of the topics in the Williamsburg forum.

Two physicians, Arguello de la Mota and Antonio Arocha, were in San Juan de los Morros, a small town not far from Caracas, Venezuela when they were startled by the unexpected arrival of two characters dressed in black who drove into the dusty town in a sporty Mustang. Unaware that they were being watched, the MIB exchanged remarks and donned orange-colored belts. Suddenly, a brilliant object appeared in the sky, descending rapidly to the surface. The physicians, swore that the object was a 60-foot wide disk-shaped craft which produced a parabolic ladder while hovering inches off the ground. The MIB entered the vehicle, which rose into the skies and vanished out of sight (no information is available on the fate of the brand-new sports car they left behind). The story was circulated worldwide by United Press International.

June 13--CIA "critic" James E. MacDonald drives into desert and "shoots himself".

Summer--Near Edwards AFB, Debbie Clayton reported that she heard a loud roaring sound and then a loud crash. Outside she could see a cloud of dust several blocks away. She walked over to the crash site and while other civilians were studying the craft, the military arrived, weapons drawn. One of the civilians named Dalton was taking pictures. An Air Force officer ripped the camera from his hands and smashed it but didn't try to remove the film. The craft had no markings but seemed to be scratched. There were no windows or seams, and it appeared to be molded in one piece. It was a dark grayish color with greenish highlights. The texture was smooth. The military told the witnesses to leave or be arrested. The military covered the craft with a large canvas and lifted it with cables attached to the canvas. Once it was loaded, the military left, and there was no mention of the incident in the newspapers.

August--Maria Gomez Pereira discovered a strange expressionistic image of a man's face that had appeared on her kitchen floor. A few days later she had the floor ripped out and relaid, only to find that the face reappeared in exactly the same place within a week. Before she got the chance to rip out the floor a second time, the slab was removed and preserved by local authorities. Investigations into the site on which the house was built, revealed that the site had once been a graveyard. It was decided that the floor of the house should be excavated to see what lay beneath. After digging down some nine feet, human remains were found, which were soon removed. It was decided that the excavation had been successful, and a new floor was soon installed. Bizarrely, after just two weeks, a variety of new faces had appeared on the new floor. Over the coming months, the "Faces of Belmez" attracted a huge amount of attention, but nobody was able to explain why the faces kept returning.

September 4--Four members of the National Geographic Institute of Costa Rica were flying in a twin-engined aircraft 10,000ft above Lake Cote, near the Central American state's forbidding Arenal volcano. A special map-making camera was slung underneath their plane. It was automatic and large-format, and every 20 seconds it took another photograph of the lake beneath. When the photographs were developed, one of the frames showed what seemed to be a metallic disc about 160ft in diameter, which had just left, or was on the point of entering, the lake. It was giving off light, and had made a sudden maneuver at the instant the photo was taken. The object showed up on neither the previous frame of film nor the one afterwards. Checks on the negative eliminated tricks of the light as an explanation. Lake Cote is extremely deep, and there have been numerous other reports of unknown submergible craft entering and leaving it. Local fishermen, out on the lake in the small hours, have seen various objects below them, giving off colored lights.

September 10--An Air Force F-4E fighter jet disappears without a trace over the Bermuda Triangle, 82 miles southeast of Homestead AFB.

November 2--A very credible UFO encounter occurred in Delphos, Kansas in 1971. Sixteen-year old Ron Johnson, along with his dog, was tending the family sheep when his attention was suddenly drawn to a mushroom-shaped UFO appearing in the night sky. Incredibly the UFO was only about 75 feet from him, and it hovered only a few feet above the ground. Ron estimated the craft's diameter at 6-8 feet and it was covered with multicolored lights across it's metallic surface. Stunned by what he was looking at, he tried to get a closer look, but the brilliant luminance of the craft did not allow him to make out any additional details. Unlike many other UFO reports, Ron described the craft as making a loud sound, "like an old washing machine which vibrates." The glow of the object's bottom increased as it began to shoot up into the sky. Ron would later state that he was temporarily blinded by the brightness of the craft as it ascended. After he regained his sight and composure, he ran back to the family house to alert the others. The bright glow was now high in the sky, as it began to vanish from sight altogether. Three family members came running around the side of the house to get a glimpse of the unusual phenomena. They arrived at the location, and were shocked to see a glowing ring in the ground, right below where the craft had hovered. Family members would later relate that the ground around the glow. "felt strange, like a slick crust, as if the soil was crystallized." Ron's mother's fingers went numb, like she had been given a local anesthetic. Seeing nothing else of the craft, the family finally settled down for the night. When dawn broke the next day, the family immediately returned to the sight of the glowing ring, and to their surprise, it was still there. The inside and outside of the ring were damp from a rain shower, but the ring itself was amazingly dry. The ring had a crusty appearance, as though the rain had simply ran off, leaving it bone dry. Slightly over a month later, after a snow fall, the white ice had melted both inside and outside of the ring, but the ring itself maintained the snow drift. Investigators experimented with the ring by removing snow from a section of it, and pouring water on the exposed part. The soil would not allow the water to pass through. Further experimentation showed the ground under the ring to be dry to a depth of one foot. The ring itself was composed of a whitish substance, which was sent to a laboratory for analysis. The findings were as follows: "(it was resolved into fibers which) were vegetal in nature and belonged to an organism of the order of Actinomycetales, which is an intermediate organism between bacteria and fungus... family actiniomycete, genus Nocardia... (and is) often found together with a fungus of the order Basidomycetes, which may flouresce under certain conditions... one possible interpretation is that high energy stimulation triggered the spectacular growth of the Nocardia and of an existing fungus, and caused the latter to flouresce." The experience of Ron Johnson is still considered as one of the best documented "ground trace" UFO cases of the past century, and is considered "unexplained."

A French company imported some uranium ore from Oklo in the Gabon Republic in Africa. Surprisingly, the uranium concentration in the ore was as low as spent uranium fuel from a nuclear reactor. The finding led scientists to believe that the uranium had already been used for energy production. This discovery shocked the world and attracted scientists from many countries to go to Oklo for further investigation. The results showed that the uranium mine was an ancient nuclear reactor. The ancient reactor consisted of five hundred tons of utilized uranium ore in six different areas. Its output power was estimated to be approximately one hundred kilowatts. The reactor was perfectly preserved and its layout was very rational. It is estimated that the reactor had been in operation for around 500,000 years. Furthermore, nuclear wastes produced in this reactor had not spread all over the surrounding areas. Instead, they were confined within the separate sections. From the perspective of modern nuclear technology, this ancient reactor used very advanced techniques.

While strolling along the shore of a peninsula in Scotland's Western Highlands, American folk singer Artie Traum heard disembodied voices chanting "Run, man, run" in a strange harmony to the sound of fiddles and pipes. When Traum fled into a nearby woods, he heard crackling sounds and "great motion." All the while, he recalled, "my head was swarming with thousands of voices, thousands of words making no sense." The voices ceased once he found his way back to the open air.

United Airlines flight 553 from Washington to Chicago crashes at Midway Airport. Chicagoan Lawrence O'Connor, who had used United Airlines Flight 553 or its equivalent to fly from Washington to Chicago on Friday nights for years was warned by a White House source not to take this flight; Among the deaths were: Dorothy Hunt (Wife of E. Howard Hunt) carrying $50,000 in Watergate payoff funds and close to $2 million that she was attempting to place in foreign banks; Michele Clark, CBS newswoman who was to interview Mrs. Hunt on a story that could allegedly destroy Nixon; at least four people alleged to have knowledge of a large labor union "donation" to the Committee to Reelect the President who were paid to stop the indictment of a Chicago Labor hoodlum; a group of gas pipeline lobbyists, attorneys and gas company officials (Robert Moreau, Nancy Parker, Ralph Blodgett, James Drueger, Lon Bayer, Wilbur Erickson) who had allegedly gathered evidence against former Attorney General John Mitchell in an anti-trust case involving El Paso Natural Gas Co; also aboard was a "hit-man" using the cover of Harold Metcalf, of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement, who told the pilot, Captain Whitehouse, he was carrying a gun and was assigned a jump seat near the food galley and rear door. After the crash, Cpt. Whitehouse and six of the Watergate related passengers were found to have unexplainably high cyanide contents, although the other 35 passengers who were killed did not. Following the crash hit-man Metcalf, in a jump suit, walked out the cracked open fuselage. Up to 200 FBI and CIA agents took over the crash site immediately, beating the fire department to the scene, refusing to allow in a medical team, confiscating the control tower tapes, interviewing survivors and witnesses before the National Transportation Safety Board investigators had a chance to. CBS News requested immediate cremation of Michele Clark's body; evidence of sabotage includes possible tampering with altimeter and air data computer, malfunctioning of the runway visual range recorder and the Kedzie localizer which acted as the runway's outer marker, a series of misdirections from air traffic controllers and the failure of Flight 553's standby power system. An in-flight robbery gang known as the Joseph Sarelli Mob came into possession of some of the Hunt Money and Mitchell documents after the crash and sold them for $5 million. The day after the crash Nixon Aide Egil Krogh Jr is appointed Undersecretary of Transportation and is placed in charge of the two agencies investigating the crash (the FAA and the NTSB); ten days later Nixon assistant Alexander Butterfield, a CIA-Aviation liaison is appointed head of the FAA; a few weeks later Nixon Aide Dwight Chapin becomes a top aide with United Airlines.

March 3--Two Loveland, Ohio police officers encountered a four-foot tall, frog-faced biped with textured leathery skin. They saw it jump over a guard rail and descend an embankment leading to the Little Miami River. About two weeks later one of the officers saw the thing again, first lying in the road, then getting up to go over a guard rail. He took a shot at it but apparently missed. A local farmer also reported seeing such a creature.

July 18--Possible UFO crash in the Morroco Sahara Desert, three Bodies.

Summer--At Thetis Lake, British Columbia, there were two reports of a silver-colored creature which emerged from the water, in the first instance, on August 19, to chase a couple of young men from the beach. One supposedly suffered lacerations in the hand from six sharp points atop the thing's head. A witness to the second incident, on August 23, said it was "shaped like an ordinary body, like a human being body, but it had a monster face, and it was all scaly." It had a sharp point on its head and "great big ears."

December 17--Among the more impressive incidents involving yeti tracks is one that happened in 1972 to members of the Arun Valley Wildlife Expedition, a multidisciplinary ecological survey of a deep river valley in far-eastern Nepal where many rare animals and plants live isolated and undisturbed. Its participants, including leader Edward Cronin, a zoologist, were open-minded about the yeti's possible existence and even looked for evidence in the course of their two-year effort, but this was not the main purpose of their endeavor. On the night of December 17, Cronin and expedition physician Howard Emery, along with their Sherpa guides, camped on a depression at 12,000 feet in the ridge of Kongmaa La mountain. The next morning, when Emery awoke and stepped outside, he was startled to find footprints of a bipedal creature which had walked between the two tents sometime in the night. Nine inches long and four and three-quarters wide, perfectly preserved, the tracks showed, Cronin recorded, a "short, broad, opposable hallux, an asymmetrical arrangement of the four remaining toes, and a wide, rounded heel." They looked very much like a yeti print photographed by mountaineer Eric Shipton in 1951. Expedition members followed the prints for some distance. The creature had come up and down the slope to the north, crossed through the camp, and proceeded over the south slope. Then it returned to the top of the ridge. Its tracks disappeared down the south slope in scrub and rock. "The slope was extremely steep," Cronin wrote, "and searching for the prints was arduous and dangerous. We realized that whatever creature had made them was far stronger than any of us."

President Nixon gives comedian Jackie Gleason access to dead alien bodies. Three separate people claim to have been told the story by Nixon (Bill Knell, Larry Warren and Beverly Gleason). The key witness of the three was Beverly Gleason, the second wife of the comedy superstar. She wrote a version of the story for the National Enquirer in 1983 four years before Gleason’s death. It was a story that Beverly said made Jackie very angry. The gist of the story is that Gleason was friends with Nixon. He lived in Miami, Florida near Nixon’s southern White House at Key Biscayne. Gleason saw the bodies late one night at Homestead Air Force Base, which was close to both men’s homes. It was also the base where Nixon flew in on his 92 trips to the southern White House.

April 30--An educated London woman named Mary Treadgold was traveling by bus through the Highlands. Near the town of Mull, the bus pulled over to the side of a narrow road to let an oncoming car pass by, and Treadgold idly looked out the window to an expanse of peat. There, standing in front of a clump of heather, stood a "small figure, about 18 inches high, a young man with his foot on a spade, arrested (frozen like a bird or a squirrel on the approach of something alien) in the act of digging," she reported. "He had a thin, keen face (which I would know again), tight, brown, curly hair, was dressed in bright blue bib-and-braces, with a very white shirt, with rolled-up sleeves. An open sack, also miniature, stood at his side. He was emphatically not a dwarf, nor a child, nor (last desperate suggestion of a skeptic) a plastic garden gnome. He was a perfectly formed living being like any of us, only in miniature." The figure was lost to view after the bus resumed its journey. "When I got home," Treadgold wrote, "I inquired from a Highland acquaintance who told me friends of hers had seen similar small people on Mull, and that Mull was known for this. She added the small people were generally pale (I don't recall this particularly) and very bright. This last I do recollect in the brightness of the hair and clothes, and the general appearance of energy and alertness.

June 14--In New Mexico, a crashed UFO recovered with survivors. Area cordoned off within a half hour and DERO (Downed Extraterrestrial Recovery Operations) activated. 385 Americans witnessed the crash, all disappeared with their families. Anthrax epidemic was blamed. Some Americans near the crash site were shot by paramilitary stormtroopers. Craft removed to Coonty Mountain and then later onto Battle Mountain in Nevada and remains there.

Summer--Residents of New Jersey's Newton-Lafayette area described a giant man-like alligator they had seen locally. Newspaper reporters wrote about an old Indian tale from the region that told of a giant, man-sized fish that could never be caught.

August 19--A living giant was sighted in the little village of Buffalo Mills, Pennsylvania. A man at least nine-feet tall strode down the main street of the village, dressed in strange clothing, which appeared to be made of some sort of shimmering material. He gazed at the startled townspeople in a dark, penetrating way and then loped off casually into oblivion.

Fall-- In the fall of 1973, western Pennsylvania played host to dozens of reports of strange apelike creatures, sometimes seen in association with UFOs, said to have (in one witness's words) "fire-red eyes that glowed in total darkness," and to be "seven to eight-feet tall, and to give off a strong, unpleasant odor." Another type of creature, investigator Stan Gordon noted, "was said to be between five and six-feet tall. It was described as looking just like an extremely muscular man with a covering of thick dark hair". Again in these reports, the arms were very long and hung down past the knees. This creature appeared to have superior agility exceeding that of a deer. From footprints discovered, the stride of the creatures varies between 52 and 57 inches. In these reports there was no indication of odors. Two sketches published in Flying Saucer Review (July 1974, page 5) show these creatures to bear a striking resemblance to the traditional werewolf, though neither witnesses nor investigators remarked on the fact.

October 2--In Derry, New Hampshire, at about eight at night, more than 20 witnesses saw two small, whitish-yellow glowing orbs, about two-feet round, performing maneuvers. The two objects then descended towards Rainbow Lake and, once above it, one of them fell straight down and splashed into the water, making an audible splash and a series of waves. The other soared upwards and vanished. The police were contacted and subsequently divers from the local fire department were called in. They searched the water, but reported near zero visibility due to the cloudy, murky conditions. Dragging the bottom with nets was considered, but apparently dragging for UFOs was not included in the small-town fire dept's budget, and no further searches were conducted.

October 11--The "Pascagoula Incident" involved two men, 19-year old Calvin Parker and 42-year old Charles Hickson, both of Gautier, Mississippi, who were fishing in the Pascagoula River when they heard a buzzing noise behind them. Both turned and were terrified to see a ten-foot wide, eight-foot high, glowing egg-shaped object with blue lights at its front hovering just above the ground about forty feet from the river bank. As the men, frozen with fright, watched, a door appeared in the object, and three strange Beings floated just above the river towards them. The Beings had legs but did not use them. They were about five-feet tall, had bullet-shaped heads without necks, slits for mouths, and where their noses or ears would be, they had thin, conical objects sticking out, like carrots from a snowman's head. They had no eyes, gray, wrinkled skin, round feet, and claw-like hands. Two of the beings seized Hickson; when the third grabbed Parker, the teenager fainted with fright. Hickson claimed that when the Beings placed their hands under his arms, his body became numb, and that then they floated him into a brightly lit room in the UFO's interior, where he was subjected to a medical examination with an eyelike device which, like Hickson himself, was floating in mid-air. At the end of the examination, the Beings simply left Hickson floating, paralyzed but for his eyes, and went to examine Parker, who, Hickson believed was in another room. Twenty minutes after Hickson had first observed the UFO, he was floated back outside and released. He found Parker weeping and praying on the ground near him. Moments later, the object rose straight up and shot out of site. Expecting only ridicule if they were to tell anyone what had happened, Hickson and Parker initially decided to keep quiet; but then, because the government might want, or ought, to know about it, they telephoned Kessler Air Force Base in Biloxi. A sergeant there told them to contact the sheriff. But uncertain about the reception their bizarre story might get from the local law, they drove to the local newspaper office to speak to a reporter. When they found the office closed, Hickson and Parker felt they had no alternative but to talk to the sheriff. The sheriff, after listening to their story, put Hickson and Parker in a room wired for sound in the belief that if the two men were left alone they would reveal their hoax; of course they did not. The local press reported their tale; the wire services picked it up; and within several days the Pascagoula Encounter was major news all over the country. The Aerial Phenomena Research Organisation (APRO) sent University of California engineering professor James Harder to Mississippi to investigate; J. Allen Hynek, representing the Air Force, also arrived. Together they interviewed the witnesses. Harder hypnotized Hickson but had to terminate the session when Hickson became too frightened to continue. Hickson and Parker both subsequently passed lie detector tests. Hynek and Harder believed the two mens' story. And Hynek was later quoted as saying "There was definitely something here that was not terrestrial".

October 18-- The "Coyne UFO Encounter" near Mansfield, Ohio, witnessed by four US Army Reserve UH-1H crewmen in their helo and a family of five on the ground. The helo crew was returning to Cleveland Hopkins IAP from Columbus, OH and were near Mansfield at 11:02 PM when the crew chief pointed out to then Captain Lawrence Coyne a bright red light that was in the distance and closing on them. Believing it to be a OHANG F-100, Coyne called Mansfield tower. He got a response, then nothing. The light then closed in on their helo at an estimated 600 kts and Coyne put the helo into a dive and then leveled out--with a cigar-shaped object with a red light and a green light right over them. Coyne then tried another dive and found the helo now rising--his copilot was frantically trying to call Mansfield tower. The UFO hovered over the helo for about 15-20 seconds, then accelerated off at an estimated 1,000 kts at 4,500 ft. When the UFO departed, the radio interference ceased, and the helo flew on to Cleveland without incident. An FAA and US Army investigation found no known aircraft in the area, and the witness descriptions of the object, radio interference, etc. ruled out natural explanations. The ground witnesses were found by a private UFO group who confirmed the UFO's and helo's movements. A footnote: that Huey, 71-5144 had a perfect maintenance record prior to the UFO incident-afterwards, that helo became the unit "hangar queen."

November 6--Fishermen in Pascagoula, Mississippi, reported a unique encounter with an unidentified submerged object, coastguards confirmed it. There were nine witnesses. The object was circular or elliptical in shape, about 12ft long, and gave out a beam of amber light. The two fishermen who raised the alarm said it looked like "a mini-submarine" and hovered about 4ft below them in the water. It was so close that they tried to hit it with their paddles. However, each time they tried to make contact, the light would go out and reappear in another position. When coastguard officers were summoned, they, too, tried to hit the USO. They succeeded, and reported that the object, whatever it was, felt metallic. The coastguard made detailed notes. The object, they said, had a parachute-like shape and moved at a speed of six to eight knots, making steadily for deeper water. The intensity of its light varied from nothing to a glare that was sometimes too bright to look at. When a torch was shone at it, the light "turned off" until the beam was removed. "The phenomena observed were not consistent with any known fish, other marine life or known light source," concluded the coastguard report.

December 13--French journalist Claude Vorilhon purportedly says aliens ("Elohim") contacted him with a message in the south of France. He later forms the "Raellian Movement".

Widely reported UFO crash near Detroit. The alleged crash was announced twice by a TV station in Detroit, the first time in the morning: a UFO with four aliens aboard had been intercepted by the United States Air Force and had crashed in the area. One of their craft had been intercepted somewhere north of Detroit, engaged by the United States Air Force. People in the area never found out what happened after that. Everyone waited for the six o'clock news to tell them more. But the news crew only confirmed the landing, yet avoided being specific about its location and presented what little information they had with great caution, as if doing their best to downplay the sensational and possibly panic-causing information they were supplying, straight-faced and soberly, to their public. These were the station's regular newscasters, reputable and popular, with everything to lose by creating a hoax and nothing but brief notoriety to gain. By the time the eleven-o'clock news came around, the story had changed. The prime-time news crew had perpetrated an irresponsible and inexcusable hoax, and had therefore been dismissed from their jobs. No UFOs had landed; no aliens were in custody, dead or alive; the United States Air Force had positively not engaged or intercepted any craft whatsoever in the skies above Michigan; and that, officially and absolutely, was that. The early and 6 o'clock broadcasts are a matter of public record.

May--Possible UFO crash at Ramstein AFB, Germany. Witness states, "Sometimes we actually got lucky enough to score a hit with a missile before the UFO could take any evasive action, which an army air defense battalion did with an antiaircraft missile near Ramstein Air Force Base. The spacecraft managed to crash-land in a valley. The craft was retrieved and flown back to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada."

June 9-- JASDF F-4EJ scrambled from Chitose AB to intercept unknown contact. Visual contact revealed a oval-shaped object 75 ft. across, pilot armed his 20mm gun as the UFO made two passes on the F-4. On the third pass, the UFO clipped off the tail of the plane. Both crew ejected, but the pilot, Lt. Colonel Toshio Nakamura, died in the ejection. RIO Major Shiro Kubota survived. A/C was 17-8307, official cause of loss was "Collision with aircraft or object unknown."

August 25--US Air Defense radars track a UFO descending over the Northern Mexico state of Chihuahua. Curiously, a civilian plane from El Paso also disappeared over the same area at the same time, perhaps due to the UFO. With daylight the next day, Mexican authorities began a search for the missing plane. Approximately 1035 hrs there came a radio report that wreckage from the missing plane had been spotted from the air. Almost immediately came a report of a second plane on the ground a few miles from the first. A few minutes later an additional report stated that the second "plane" was circular shaped and apparently in one piece although damaged. A few minutes after that the Mexican military clamped a radio silence on all search efforts. The radio interceptions were reported through channels to the CIA. Possibly as many as two additional government agencies also received reports, but such has not been confirmed as of this date. The CIA immediately began forming a recovery team. The speed with which this team and its equipment was assembled suggests that this was either a well-rehearsed exercise or one that had been performed prior to this event. In the meantime requests were initiated at the highest levels between the United States and Mexican governments that the US recovery team be allowed onto Mexican territory to "assist." These requests were met with professed ignorance and a flat refusal of any cooperation. By 2100 hrs, August 26, the recovery team had assembled and been staged at Fort Bliss. Several helicopters were flown in from some unknown source and assembled in a secured area. These helicopters were painted a neutral sand color and bore no markings. Eye witness indicates that there were three smaller craft, very probably UH-1 Hueys from the description. There was also a larger helicopter, possibly a Sea Stallion. Personnel from this team remained with their craft and had no contact with other Ft. Bliss personnel. Satellite and recognizance aircraft overflight that day indicated that both the crashed disk and the civilian aircraft had been removed from the crash sites and loaded on flat bed trucks. Later flights confirmed that the convoy had departed the area heading south. At that point the CIA had to make a choice, either to allow this unknown aircraft to stay in the hands of the Mexican government, or to launch the recovery team, supplemented by any required military support, to take the craft. There occurred, however, an event that took the choice out of their hands. High altitude overflights indicated that the convoy had stopped before reaching any inhabited areas or major roads. Recon showed no activity, and radio contact between the Mexican recovery team and its headquarters had ceased. A low altitude, high speed overflight was ordered. The photos returned by that aircraft showed all trucks and jeeps stopped, some with open doors, and two human bodies laying on the ground beside two vehicles. The decision was immediately made to launch the recovery team but the actual launching was held up for the arrival of additional equipment and two additional personnel. It was not until 1438 hrs that the helicopters departed Ft. Bliss. The four helicopters followed the boarder down towards Presidio then turned and entered Mexican airspace north of Candelaria. They were over the convoy site at 1653 hrs. All convoy personnel were dead, most within the trucks. Some recovery team members, dressed bioprotection suits, reconfigured the straps holding the object on the flatbed truck, then attached them to a cargo cable from the Sea Stallion. By 1714 hrs the recovered object was on its way to US territory. Before leaving the convoy site, members of the recovery team gathered together the Mexican vehicles and bodies, then destroyed all with high explosives. This included the pieces of the civilian light plane which had been involved in the mid-air collision. At 1746 hrs the Hueys departed. The Hueys caught up with the Sea Stallion as it reentered US airspace. The recovery team then proceeded to a point in the Davis Mountains, approximately twenty-five miles north east of Valentine. There they landed and waited until 0225 hrs the next morning. At that time they resumed the flight and rendezvoused with a small convoy on a road between Van Horn and Kent. The recovered disk was transferred to a truck large enough to handle it and capable of being sealed totally. Some of the personnel from the Huey's transferred to the convoy. All helicopters then returned to their original bases for decontamination procedures. The convoy continued non-stop, using back roads and smaller highways, and staying away from cities. The destination of the convoy reportedly was Atlanta, Georgia. No mention is made of the occupants of the civilian aircraft. It is not known if any body or bodies were recovered. Considering the destruction of the civilian light aircraft in mid-air, bodies may well not have come down near the larger pieces. Unfortunately what caused the deaths of the Mexican recovery team is not known. Speculation ranges from a chemical released from the disk as a result of the damage, to a microbiological agent. There are no indications of death or illness by any of the recovery team. It would not have been illogical for the recovery team to have taken one of the bodies back with them for analysis. But there is no indication of that having happen. Perhaps they did not have adequate means of transporting what might have been a biologically contaminated body.

October 27-- In the late night hours, an Essex, England family of five was driving home, when they were suddenly covered by a strange, green mist. Screaming in fear, the family members could see nothing, but they could feel a hard bump. Their next memory was waking in a spot about 1/2 mile farther down the same road, yet over an hour later. It would be more than two years until family members were put into regressive hypnosis. This memory retrieving procedure would recall a scenario of alien abduction. The car was "beamed" into a UFO, and a typical physical examination was carried out on the members.

Jennie McGrath:
November 9--A glowing object fell into a small lake outside Carbondale, New Jersey. Three teenagers saw it fall at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday. They observed a yellow-white glow under the water that shifted to a point 25 feet offshore. The boys were kept in a police car for three hours while a number of vehicles with floodlights and cranes removed a disc-shaped object and put it into a van. The following Monday, a railroad lantern and battery were recovered from the lake and officials called the whole thing a hoax. Hoax? Or cover story?

May-- In May, two weeks after a dramatic sighting from his Piper Pa24--a sighting confirmed on the radar screens at the Mexico City airport--a young pilot was pursued down the freeway by four black-suited, "Scandinavian-looking men in a black limousine. After forcing him to the side of the road, they warned him not to discuss his sighting; the pilot was on his way to do a television interview. A month later one of the strangers reappeared and threatened him again as he was on his way to a hotel to talk with J. Allen Hynek, the prominent American astronomer and UFO investigator. That was his last meeting with the MIB, whom he remembered as tall and strangely white; "I never saw them blink," he added.

May 10-- Five people set out on a fishing trip on the Saint John's River in Florida. One of the five, Brenda Langley, saw a strange thing in the water, something with a long neck, horns, a downturned mouth, and "flaps" hanging from the sides of its head. The creature was also a pinkish, "boiled shrimp" color.

Summer--An Oyster Bay, New York, science teacher named Tom D'Ercole was in his driveway about to enter his car when he took a last glance up at the sky. There, hovering above the roof of his house, he saw a small dark cloud unlike the occasional cumulocirrus clouds that were floating by at a much higher altitude. "The 'cloud' seemed to move and slightly enlarge as I watched it," D'Ercole related. "This basketball-sized 'cloud' floated back and forth across the peak of the roof, changing in shape from a small globular mass to a larger ovoid and finally becoming an abstract, multicurved, dark, vaporous 'something.' It finally measured about six feet in height and 11/2 feet in width." Stunned and unable to think of a rational explanation, he continued to watch in disbelief as events took an even stranger turn. The cloud seemed to inhale, purse its "lips," and direct a stream of water toward him and the car, soaking both. After a minute the spray stopped, and the cloud vanished instantly. After changing his clothes, D'Ercole took his wet shirt to Garden City Junior High School, where he worked, and ran a pH test on it. The precipitation was simply water.

October--Near Milton, Kentucky, Clarence Cable reported a "giant lizard" was roaming the forests near his junkyard. Cable described the creature as "about fifteen-feet long, had a foot-long forked tongue, and big eyes that bulged something like a frog's. It was dull-white with black-and-white stripes across its body with quarter-size speckles over it." On-site field investigations by Mark A. Hall, however, indicated this "giant lizard" ran bipedally, according to other Trimble County, Kentucky witnesses.

October-- Residents of a Walnut Creek, California neighborhood saw an immense bird, over five-feet tall with a "head like a vulture" and gray wings, dwarfing a nearby eucalyptus tree. Five minutes later it flew away, revealing a 15-foot wingspan. Around the same time, in nearby East Bay, a number of persons observed the same or a similar bird sitting on a rooftop.

October--In the 1970s, the Cold War was in full bloom. United States military installations that stored weapons of mass destruction pulled out all stops to hide their location from enemy spies and spy planes. Loring Air Force Base, located in the northeastern part of Maine, fit this pattern, housing their nuclear weapons under camouflaged huts, covered with dirt. This fenced in area was under constant watch by the 42nd Security Police Squadron. At precisely 7:45 P.M. on October 27, 1975, Staff Sergeant Danny K. Lewis was performing his normal duties of keeping a watchful eye on the hidden weapons area. His attention was diverted by the sudden appearance of an unidentified flying craft at an altitude of about 300 feet. The craft was approaching from the north, with a bright red navigation light, and a white strobe light. To Lewis' surprise, the craft entered the official airspace of Loring. At the same time, Staff Sergeant James P. Sampley of the 2192nd Communications Squadron was on duty in the control tower of the base. Sampley received a radar return from an unidentified craft, which he calculated from his radar screen as being 10-13 miles east-northeast of the base. As per his orders, he made calls via radio through all available communication bands, both military and civilian, hailing the craft. He got no response. As he kept an alert eye on his screen, the craft began to circle the base, and finally came to within 300 yards of the highly restricted nuclear storage area. The craft's altitude was now a mere 150 feet. By this time, Sergeant Lewis was notifying his Command Post that the unknown craft had penetrated the perimeter of the base, and was closing in on the nuclear storage area. The base was instantaneously put on a Security 3 alert status. Security officials contacted Sampley in the Control tower to verify the sighting via radar. Making his way to the tower, Sergeant Grover K. Eggleston began studiously watching the craft on radar. It had now began circling ten miles east-northeast of the base. The base's Wing Commander ordered a search of the grounds, and requested air support from Hancock Field, New York, and North Bay, Ontario. Neither of the bases would oblige his request at the time. The Maine State Police and airport flight services were contacted in an attempt to identify the unknown object. Again, no identification was forthcoming. The ground search also came up empty handed. For an additional 40 minutes, the unknown craft circled in the vicinity of the base. Finally it left it's pattern, and headed toward Grand Falls, New Brunswick. Now about 12 miles from Loring, it disappeared from the radar screen. The base was quiet for the rest of the night, but the Stage 3 alert was kept until the next morning. SAC Headquarters was notified of the details of the unknown craft. Unbelievably, the next night at exactly the same time, the craft returned. Lewis was again on duty, along with Sergeants Blakeslee and Long. The craft was approaching Loring from the north, this time at about 3,000 feet. The craft got as near as three miles from the base, again showing flashing lights of orange, red, and white. All three of the men on duty witnessed the craft. Lewis reported his sighting to Command, and this time the Wing Commander came to the storage area to verify the sighting. He confirmed the findings of the three duty officers. Radar again confirmed the unknown craft. The appearance of an other worldly craft would also be confirmed by Sergeant Steven Eickner, and others. A group of military witnesses reported an orange and red object shaped like a stretched out football, which amazingly hovered in midair. It's lights suddenly were darkened, and then the craft reappeared over the runaway, hovering about 150 feet off the ground. They also estimated the length of the craft at about 75-80 feet, solid, with no visible doors or windows, no visible means of propulsion, and totally silent. Again the base was put on full alert, and a security detail searched the base, finding nothing. Finally, the craft turned off it's lights, and vanished from view. Radar picked up the unknown craft heading in the direction of Grand Falls, New Brunswick. A second report was sent to SAC headquarters. The unsettling events of October 27 and 28 would finally get the attention of military personnel who were in a position to give support to Loring. October 29 would bring a National Guard helicopter for support, just in case. Canadian authorities were given permission to cross the border if needed. Royal Canadian Mounted Police provided an officer to ride along in the helicopter. Those who waited for another visit would not be disappointed. The helicopter was called into action, and immediately responded. Accompanying the RCMP officer were Loring Air Security officers, and an officer from the Maine State Police. The chopper followed the leads sent from radar, but even when approaching within 100 yards, they could see nothing in the skies. The next night brought an Air Force helicopter, and a crew from Plattsburgh AFB. October 30 brought more sightings from the ground, and radar confirmation. There would be more ground sightings of strange lights for the remainder of 1975 in the same area, but investigations by the USA and Canada released no findings for public knowledge. The sightings at Loring Air Force Base were only a part of a full-fledged flap in the northern region of the United States, and southern area of Canada. This sighting flap holds a credible place in UFO history.

October 30--A UFO incident at Wurtsmith AFB in Michigan.

November 5--Travis Walton was leaving the site where he worked in the mountains of Northeastern Arizona near Snowflake. He, and five others he worked with, saw a light in the woods. Thinking that is may be a crashed airplane, they drove closer. Travis was the only one to leave the truck for a closer look. The other five men in the truck saw Travis hit by a blue beam from the disc-shaped object. Travis was missing for five days. After his return, he had no memory of his abduction. Travis remembered some events that took place during his abduction over time, and was able to vividly describe them under hypnosis. He recalled seeing Grays and being given a tour of the craft. This would later be made into a movie titled Fire in the Sky with James Garner.

November 8--A UFO incident at Malmstrom AFB in Montana.

December 27--A farmer at Cessnock, New South Wales, Australia, reported a monitor lizard nearly 30-feet long. The creature had a two-foot neck, a three-foot head, and stood nearly three-feet tall. As far as the farmer could tell, the lizard had four legs.

May 14--A multiple-witness encounter revived interest in the Chinese yeren "wildman" and brought it international attention for the first time. Early in the morning of May 14, six local bureaucrats on their way home from a meeting spotted a "strange, tailless creature with reddish fur" on a rural highway near Chunshuya, Hubei province. Switching the headlights on high, the driver followed the creature as it tried to escape up an embankment along the roadside. It slipped and landed right in front of the jeep, which nearly hit it. The five passengers jumped out and surrounded the beast, now positioned on all fours and staring directly into the headlights. Afraid to approach it too closely, the witnesses, who were not armed, got no closer than six feet. One of them, Zhou Zhongyi, tossed a rock at the yeren's buttocks, causing it to stand briefly. At this the group retreated, and the animal lumbered away and this time executed a successful climb up the slope. The party described the creature as over six feet tall, covered in thick brown- and purpled-red wavy hair, with a fat belly and pronounced buttocks. The eyes struck them as humanlike, but the face was clearly apelike, with large ears and a protruding monkeylike snout.

July 28--A great earthquake destroyed Tangshan, China and killed over 650,000 people. Just before the first tremor at 3:42 am, the sky lit up like daylight. The multi-hued lights, mainly white and red, were seen up to 200 miles away. Leaves on many trees were burned to a crisp and growing vegetables were scorched on one side, as if by a fireball. Some investigators believe these electrical effects were associated with electromagnetic plasma and ball lightning and the strange array of flashes which result from Tesla-style technology and /or HAARP-like transmissions. Was this earthquake just a test of the system, conducted on the unsuspecting people of China? It certainly does not appear that it was a natural earthquake.

August 21--One of the most curious abduction cases in UFO history. Artist Chuck Rak, and three friends from the Massachusetts College of Art--Charlie Foltz, and twins Jim and Jack Weiner went canoeing in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine, situated between the White Mountains and New Hampshire. Oddly enough, this was the very area where Betty and Barney Hill were abducted by aliens in September of 1961 (and also close to Loring AFB which had experienced its own share of bright, unexplained lights over its weapons facilities in early 1975). On the first day of their outing the men climbed Mount Katahdin, a place known to be sacred to the American Indians of the region, and home of the grest spirit Pomola. The following day, the men met up with their aerial connection to get them to Telos Lake accessible only by pontoon plane. After quite a trip into the dense forest region they canoed up Chamberlain Lake, camping at Mud Brook. That night, witnessed by other campers in the area, several UFOs in the form of flashing lights were seen. On the fourth night of their roughing-it, the men decided to do a little night fishing on Eagle Lake. Prior to leaving they wisely constructed a very large bonfire to act as a beacon so they could find their back in the darkness. Not more than 20 minutes out on the water they encountered a "large, bright, pulsing spherical light" ascending over the tops of the trees on the far shore. Charlie flicked his flashlight on and off at the brilliant object with three long and three short flashes. The glowing object replied by suddenly moving directly over them, hovering in complete silence. Frightened, the men paddled wildly to get back to shore. After reaching the campsite they watched the object hover for a while and then simply disappear. But something wasn't right. The bonfire they had built was nothing but nearly cold cinders; a fire which should have burned for several hours was all but dead, and yet, they were certain they had only been gone about thirty minutes. They reported the sighting to a somewhat disbelieving ranger and completed their camping trip without further incident. It was not until 1986 that Jack Weiner started having horrific nightmares that slowly revealed lost information and memory about what had happened during those missing hours on the lake. His dreams contained the classic abduction characteristics and phenomenon--the men were lifted from their boat into the UFO by some sort of beam of light... they were undressed and examined medically by beings not of this world, described as being spindly, thin and disturbingly insect-like...their memories were expunged...and they were returned to their canoe. Subsequently, under hypnosis all four men recalled the same horrendous event with few variations in detail.

September 19--Iranian F-4E jets were dispatched from Shahrokhi Air Force Base in Hamadan, Iran to pursue UFOs reported over Teheran by civilians and tower personnel at Meherabad IAP. The UFOs, which were spotted by the public, and the pilots (and subsequently confirmed by radar), outmaneuvered these jets. Every time the jets approached the crafts, their systems failed. The smaller of the two UFOs engaged one jet, causing it to break off the chase. The smaller UFO landed behind a hill while the larger "Mother Ship" disappeared into the sky. Military helicopters dispatched later to find the UFO that apparently landed reported no evidence of a landing.

The Soviet newspaper Nedelya wrote about a luminescence observed by Vladimir Vorobyov from a Soviet research ship. After having completed an ocean investigation, the team suddenly noticed a white light rotating clockwise at a distance of 150 or 200 m, which split into eight parts. A sonar device registered a depth of 170 m and showed the presence of a big mass under the keel at a depth of 20 m. After 30 minutes, the luminescence disappeared.

By 1977, the Russians had placed fission-fusion-fission Superbombs in certain deep undersea trenches around the Philippines. The source believes that the Philippines are in the position of a 'keystone' within the giant Pacific Tectonic Plate. Russia had already been setting off lower yield undersea weapons in other areas around the Pacific Ocean causing strong earthquakes. The intention was/is to relieve tensions all around the Pacific plate, except the Philippines where stresses would build to tremendous levels. Then, at a certain point, the bombs around the Philippines will be set off. It is expected that this will cause incredible earthquakes and tidal waves and ultimately devastate the American West Coast. Volcanoes erupting in the Philippines are an indication that stresses are building in the area.

A rotting carcass was dredged up off the coast of New Zealand by the Japanese trawler Zuiyo Maru. On board was Michihiko Yano, a qualified biologist and an experienced crew. All of them were puzzled by what had been dredged up. Yano took five photos and pulled a few **** hairs off the edge of the front flipper, but the carcass had to be thrown back as it was feared that it might contaminate the whole catch. Since then, there have been several articles in creationist publications, the majority of which concluded that the carcass was only that of a basking shark that had decomposed in such a way that the remains looked similar to a plesiosaur-type animal...

Ray Ravenhott, director of the population program of the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID), publicly announced the agency's goal to sterilize one quarter of the world's women. In reports by the St Louis Post-Dispatch, Ravenhott in essence cited the reasoning for this being U.S. corporate interests in avoiding the threat of revolutions which might be spawned by chronic unemployment.

Kennedy Deaths: George DeMohrenschildt (after learning that the House assassinations committee wanted to interview him) commits suicide; two days later Dutch journalist Willem Oltmanns testified to the committee that DeMohrenschildts had confessed to him several months earlier that Oswald had "acted on his instructions" in the plot to murder JFK, and that DeMohrenschildt had acted as the middle man between Oswald and H.L. Hunt; DeMohrenschildt alleged to have left a document naming CIA and FBI officials connected with the assassination in his office. Carlos Prio Sacarras (ex-president of Cuba, former business partner of Jack Ruby in Havana casino, former gunrunner to Pro-Castro guerrillas, who had felt betrayed by Castro and then supported the Bay of Pigs invasion) committed suicide a week after DeMohrenschildt; Lou Staples (Radio talk show host of KRLD in Dallas and KTOK in OKC, who had interviewed Penn Jones, Roger Craig, Mae Brussell and other JFK investigators) falls victim to suicide in OKC.

January 10-- In Wakefield, New Hampshire under blizzard conditions and a temp of 5-degrees F, a farmer found a perfectly round hole presumably melted through 14 inches of solid ice on his farm pond. At the bottom of the center of this hole, he could see a black box roughly 12-inches square laying on the bottom. Subsequent Civil Defense Geiger counter readings placed radioactivity at 3 roentgens per hour of gamma radiation. (Usual readings were in the 1000ths of rph.) The place was overrun by police, investigators, and the curious... the black box disappeared under mysterious circumstances... Witnesses reported seeing state officials leaving the area with plastic bags. The NH governor's office denied the whole thing... and within 24 hours, the entire surface of the pond had melted, despite single digit temperatures. In subsequent days the farmer's dog died, a photo appeared in the local newspaper of two men carrying a heavy object from the pond, and it was discovered that one of the investigators was working with a German firm on some sort of secret assignment.

February--Broad Haven, UK was the scene of a UFO flap. There were several reported sightings; the most widely publicized was the strange visitation to a field near to Broad Haven Primary School. 14 primary children witnessed a silvery yellow cigar shaped UFO, and a few also witnessed a humanoid figure in a silver suit. Following this report there were adult witnesses to a dome shaped UFO in the same vicinity. There were several more sightings over the following months, which leveled off considerably after 1977.

April 21--The small community of Dover, Massachusetts entered into the crypto-zoological limelight in April, 1977, with three separate sightings of a bizarre creature, termed "The Dover Demon". At approximately 10:30 p.m. on the night of April 21, 17-year old Bill Barlett and two friends were driving down Farm Street in Dover. They were passing the Farm Street Wall when Barlett noticed movement in the loose stones of the wall. As the animal turned its head and stared into the car's headlights, Barlett saw that it was unlike anything he had ever seen. It had two huge orange eyes, a large, oval-shaped head. The creature was thin-limbed, with large hands and feet. It was hairless and fleshtone in color, with a rough texture. Bill later made a sketch of the creature he saw. About two hours later, 15-year old John Baxter saw a short figure approaching down the street. As the figure neared, it stopped and fled into woods at the side of the road. John pursued the small figure into the woods, halting at the edge of a shallow gully. He looked across the gully at a tree, against which stood the figure. Claiming that he did not know of Barlett's sighting, he nonetheless described a similar creature. The next evening, the creature was seen again by Will Taintor and Abby Brabham. They saw a monkeylike creature without hair. It was thin and sat on all fours at the side of the road. Brabham insisted that the creature's eyes were green, even after investigators told her that Barlett and Baxter said they were orange.

June 21--The New York Times reported that a 40-ton magnet had been shipped to a group of scientists in the Soviet Union. The device could be used to generate a magnetic field 250,000 times stronger than that of planet Earth.
