Alien Contact


The following account, according to the witness, is a true one. It was sent to the UFO Casebook with permission to publish on the internet. The witness described the events of the encounter in the following words:

My name is Baz (pseudonym) and I am 25 years old. I live in Longbridge, England, which is where the main Rover car plant is located.

I work for Rover, and have recently seen a large alien spacecraft -- which the authorities here assert does not exist. I was walking back from my girlfriend's house one night, and the route I took put me walking past the Kalamazoo site, which has a large park at the rear.

It was about twelve o'clock and I heard strange noises emanating from the park. At first I thought I saw a car, but I investigated further and then I saw moving lights behind the trees.

Although I wasn't certain what it could be, I glanced behind the trees and saw a large round object, hovering around five feet above the ground. It had a strange metallic sheen, and was making a noise like a low pitched humming.

In the distance, I could just make out some thin, shadowy figures, with long arms and large heads.

I could hardly move, and as if they knew I was there. They turned around and looked directly at me. They had the biggest eyes I have ever seen. They started to make their way towards me, which is when I made a break for it and ran.

When I reached the boundary of the park, where it meets the road, a car pulled up and the driver motioned for me to come over. Although I was terrified, I went over to the car, which was black in colour, and the driver asked me if I'd seen anything.

I didn't understand how he could know, which disturbed me, and I said that there was something in the park.

By this time, I was really scared and said I hadn't seen anything.

I went straight home and called the police, but they said that nothing in the area had been reported.

I was very interested in possible conspiracies, as before I thought that it was just me who had had a strange experience like this.

But now I know I am not alone.

I just thought someone ought to know.

And we do want to know!

Oregon - 06-16-09

I had taken my dog outside to have a cigar and about halfway through my cigar, I started to notice flickers and flashes of light in both crescent shapes and orbs.

There was cloud cover but no thunderstorms. The light seemed to be both in the clouds at times, and also under the clouds. This did not even loosely resemble lightning.

As I watched this very lengthy light show, I was aware of a passing car. My dog then began to get unnerved and looked in the same direction as I was looking.

As the car came closer down the road, across the street I noticed a pair of eyes as if an animal's eyes were reflecting in the light, except they were a deep purple/indigo.

As the car passed, I watched the spot where I had observed the eyes, and was shocked to see a whitish humanoid shape stand up and quickly walk into the neighboring yard across the street.

My heart began to race and I became quite unnerved. I called my wife outside and told her what I'd seen and asked her to look at the lights in the sky as well.

She confirmed that something was flickering/flashing in multiple spots. We both got very nervous and came inside the house. As I write this, my heart is still pounding in my chest.

All through this episode the dog also was alert and cautiously raising and lowering her head, as she watched something more that we couldn't see across the street. Also, I heard a jet pretty low with a loud roaring sound afterwards.

Large Grey Aliens Require Full Disclosure by 2015!

Apparently a former treaty was made with the Large Grey Aliens which requires FULL disclosure by 2015.

In an article titled “Secret Space War VIII: Alien Quantum Computing and the End of Secrecy?” on the Veterans Today website the author Dr. James Preston refers to a treaty that may have been created between the large Grey alien race and the Secret Shadow Government. The article describes several alleged treaties between several different alien races and various nations here on earth.

This alleged treaty states that the SSG must provide Complete Disclosure soon or the large alien Greys will allegedly make massive public displays of themselves and their anti-gravity crafts (AGCs) and disclose everything themselves directly to the American people, including the temporary use of the major mass media.
It has been claimed that a certain prior treaty with the large alien Greys requires complete disclosure of alien presence and technology by a certain date or these aliens will supposedly make large public landings in every major city of the world, guaranteeing a systematic but rapidly developing complete end to secrecy and especially the deep black and beyond black programs previously protected by immediate assassinations.

This article also suggests there is a split between the older members and the younger ones who want complete disclosure to be attained in logical steps done in a manner preventing public panic or out of control business changes from occurring too rapidly.

Stories such as this can sometimes be pretty tough to swallow, especially to any potential non believers out there or people who are possibly 50/50 on the whole UFO matter, however, it appears very clear nowadays that ‘something’ is going on and that we are all being built up to something BIG what with the amount of clear UFO sightings being seen by many across the world!

Perhaps, just perhaps, the Aliens want to be seen and they are actually after Disclosure themselves and no longer want to be hidden away from the human race….and angry at us for not keeping our word.

Scientists Come Up With New Plan To Contact Aliens

Scientists have wanted to establish communication with alien life for the longest time, and there have been many unsuccessful attempts to do so.

The question of whether there is alien life somewhere in the universe has been the subject of debate for centuries. While sightings of UFOs and contact with aliens have been reported, scientists have uncovered no hard, scientific evidence that such alien life exists. As such, the accepted conclusion is that there are no aliens living beyond our planet Earth.

The current approach being used by scientists to establish communication with aliens has been to track radio signals in space that may be coming from alien civilizations. The method has largely been inefficient, with some scientists clamoring for a more active
approach in reaching out to possible alien life.

Douglas Vakoch, a scientist from the SETI Institute, which stands for "search for extraterrestrial intelligence," proposed to The American Association for the Advancement of Science a different approach to trying to contact aliens under the so-called Active SETI program.

Instead of waiting to receive radio signals from alien civilizations, Vakoch believes that scientists would get a response if signals are sent out from Earth to show that the planet's inhabitants are looking to reach out to alien life.

"The most critical reason to add Active SETI to our search strategy is that this may be the right strategy that lets us make contact," Vakoch said.

Vakoch adds that this new strategy would require people to control their uncertainties and fears and look optimistically at the project.

Center for SETI Research director Seth Shostak made a suggestion for scientists to send out the contents of the Internet into outer space, with the massive collection of text, videos, sounds and images offering alien life that would be receiving the signals a glimpse of the civilization living in our planet.

Using a radio transmitter would not be efficient for the proposal as it would take too long, about a month, to transmit the contents of the Internet to outer space. Instead, scientists are looking to use a laser to beam out the contents of the Internet, which would be expected to be completed in only a few days.

The proposal of SETI, however, was not welcomed by all the attendees of the meeting. Some scientists voiced out their concerns that reaching out to alien life could expose humanity to a risk far greater than the reward of establishing communication with aliens.


A remarkable case of alien abduction with missing time comes from Wales. Multiple sightings of UFOs on one night, preceded by several nights of unusual light beams reported over the Great Orme are related to us by well known investigator Margaret Fry.

The events of November 10, 1997 center on one unfortunate family who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. For a brief period of time, they entered an unknown realm of other worldly beings.

The family was driving along on the Bodfair / Landernog road when all of a sudden their car was engulfed by purple...a purple craft seemed to join itself to their automobile. The next clear memory any of the family had was that the craft was suddenly gone... like it just disappeared into thin air.

The family was again driving down the road, resuming their journey except for the feeling of the loss of time.

"But they could not account for considerable hours of time lost," said Fry. "The male was having trouble afterwards with a top molar tooth and he had to go to the dentist's... and a black unknown object fell out while he was at the dentist's - but he had no fillings," she said.

Shortly afterward, the male driver of the car reported the strange happenings to local authorities. Soon he was visited on two different occasions by Air Force personnel. They warned the man to never speak of the events of November 10, 1997 publicly.

These visits are very similar to tales in America of the infamous "men in black." The strange purple craft and missing time experienced by the family was told only to a friend, who in turn related the event to investigator Fry. The names of the individuals involved remain anonymous.

The case of the alleged abduction is extremely interesting in the light of the reports of the strange light beams and another eerie encounter of the same night.

A local business man would corroborate the two other sightings with a bizarre report of his own. The man claimed to see a strange craft on the same road as the abducted family's encounter took place.

He described the craft as enormous, and the shape of a "child's spinning top." He was able to draw a sketch of what he observed that night, while stopping to look at a UFO as big as a football field.

The UFO, a classic saucer shaped object, was seen hovering over buildings in the village of Llandernog. He claimed that the large craft had a "myriad of lit windows, "and was large enough to be a mother ship capable of transporting hundreds of people.

What was this enormous ship seen that night, except a visitor from another world? The case has never been explained by any earthly object or conventional means, and remains a mystery to this day.

Vinicius Da Silva and Marta Rosenthal were returning home from a day of fishing in the River Tocantis when they felt a bump in one of the tires. Thinking he had a flat, Vinicius stopped the vehicle and went to check.

He could not find anything wrong with the tire but suddenly heard Marta screaming and saw her pointing to the right side of the road. There, only a few meters away, hovering over the water was a metallic object with small windows along its edge.

Standing outside the object on a ledge was a humanoid figure of about 1.30 meters in height.

The figure was holding something resembling a hose and was apparently sucking water from the river and into the craft. After about two minutes the humanoid pulled up the hose from the river and re-entered the object. The craft then became very bright and shot away horizontally into the sky.

MalieAbduction ? - Doctors

Can’t Explain Why People in Kalachi, Kazakhstan Are Falling Asleep For Days

Two years since a mysterious sleeping disorder in Siberia picked up steam, doctors appear to be no closer to figuring out why residents of a remote area in Kazakhstan are falling asleep without warning for days at a time, according to reports from the Siberian Times.
The ailment has affected hundreds people living nearby a uranium mine in the Kazakh village of Kalachi. The town’s residents fall asleep suddenly for a period lasting from two to six days and wake up with memory loss.

Experts have conducted thousands of tests on patients as well as on local soil and water to determine the cause of the disorder but have come to few conclusions, according to the Siberian Times. Despite the location, tests have not found high radiation levels.
Sergei Lukashenko, the director of Kazakhstan’s National Nuclear Centre’s Radiation Safety and Ecology Institute, told the Siberian Times that he is “positive this is not radon” and speculated that carbon monoxide may contribute to the problem.

“We have some suspicions as the village has a peculiar location and weather patterns frequently force chimney smoke to go down instead of up,” he said. Carbon monoxide is a key contaminant in smoke.

Many of the town’s residents have left the village and officials say that it will be closed off in May. A Russian professor investigating the ailment told Newsweek earlier this month that it could spread.

What is the most convincing evidence that alien civilizations exist?

When will aliens make contact?

When people think of interstellar communications, often thoughts lean towards a professional, scientific message to our extra-terrestrial neighbors. Perhaps a carefully crafted radio transmission agreed upon multi-nationally?

Perhaps a physical object akin to the Golden Record attached to the Voyager spacecraft? While all that may be well and noble, one transmission was made in 1983 by a pair of drunken Japanese astronomers, Hisashi Hirabayashi and Masaki Morimoto.

Under the influence, the astronomers transmitted a message to the Altair system simply because it’s close proximity would allow a “quick” response if alien life existed there. Assuming an immediate turnaround upon reception, the aliens could respond with a similarly drunken “cheers” that would arrive on Earth in 2015. Or they might decide Earth’s best and brightest are drunks and that we are easy to colonise.

Scientists consider that we will soon receive an e-mail message from the aliens. According to the astronomers the message is expected to arrive in 2015 from live forms from the Altair solar system. They say that the message will be the response to a radio-wave signal, which had been sent to Altair a quarter century ago by Hisashi Hirabayashi, a Japanese astronomer.

According to Mr. Hirabayashi the response is likely to arrive in 2015. This is in case the intelligent beings received the message decoded it and sent an instant response. It is worth mentioning that Altair is located 16 light-years from our planet.

Hisashi Hirabayashi worked as a scientist at the University of Tokyo Astronomical Observatory. Currently this institution is called National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. In 1983, together with his colleague Masaki Morimoto, he sent the message using a US radio telescope. It was the period when the Japanese celebrated the Tanabata holiday, which is a traditional festival that marks the meeting in the night sky of Vega and Altair, two stars symbolizing goddess Orihime and god Hikoboshi respectively.

Astronomers consider that their message has reached Altair in 1999. It included 13 binary-encoded images, each image measuring 71 x 71 pixels and illustrating the features of our solar system, the position of our planet, known chemical elements, whole numbers and the basis structure of human DNA. Scientists also tried to explain the way life forms biologically evolved on Earth.

According to the theories provided by Mr. Hirabayashi in case the level of aliens’ intelligence is high enough to receive and decode the message, they will be able to send a reply. However, he is still skeptical about the actual response from aliens.

“I believe aliens exist, but they are difficult to find. We haven’t even observed any planets around Altair, so it is highly unlikely we will receive a response,” he said. Recently the images sent by the astronomer have been revealed, being missed for many years. Morimoto, working at the Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory, discovered that among other images sent to Altair there was one that included the molecular formula for ethanol, featuring the kanji characters referring to kanpai, which is a Japanese toast of “cheers!” along with the English word “toast.”
According to Hirabayashi, he came up with the idea when having a drink and jokes that there’s little chance that aliens will get that part of the message.

UFOs: Rosetta mission comet 'is ALIEN craft attempting to make contact with humans'

Ufologists claim the celestial body contains "alien structures" and that its "mystery song" is an attempt to make communicate with Earth

Space probe Philae is actually a UFO attempting to make contact with humans, conspiracy theorists are claiming.

Ufologists claim the European Space Agency's (ESA) craft, which on Wednesday completed the extraordinary feat of landing on a speeding comet, is of alien origin.

An email published on the website claimed the agency had joined forces with NASA to "cover-up" the celestial body's true extra-terrestrial nature.

The email, purportedly written by a secret whistle-blowing ESA employee of the ESA, reads: “Do not think for ONE MOMENT that a space agency would suddenly decide to spend billions of dollars to build and send a spacecraft on a 12-year journey to simply take some close-up images of a randomly picked out comet floating in space.”

“Comet 67P is NOT a comet.

“Some 20 years ago Nasa began detecting radio bursts from an unknown origin out in space.

"It would later be known that these had likely come from the direction of the now named comet 67P.

"It does show signs on its outside of machine like parts and unnatural terrain.”

Ending on an ominous note, it adds: “Whatever this object is, it did not ask to be found or scrutinised.”

Ufologist Scott Waring said he believed the signals being emitted from the comet were a “greeting” to humans.

He added: “If it was a warning, they would not allow the ESA craft to have landed.

“I believe the landing of the ESA craft was the equivalent of a first handshake.

"They will make another move soon probably.

"Alien structures are on the comet.

"I don’t believe it’s natural.”

ESA has confirmed that the comet is emitting a "mystery song" - however, this has only fuelled theories that it is a UFO attempting to make contact with Earth.

Mr Waring added: “In my opinion this is not a code.

"It is how a species of aliens communicate to one another without speaking.

"A form of telepathy put into primitive radio signals.

"It's the only way this species can communicate to us.

"ThThey don’t talk.”

He concluded: “Getting a copy of the full message and then translating it should be of utter importance.

"Is it a message of greetings?

"Or is it a warning of what’s to come?

"We, the people of the world, need to find out.”

The £173million European space agency (Esa) probe, which has already sent back detailed pictures, made history by landing on two-and-a-half-mile-wide 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a 10-year voyage on the Esa's Rosetta satellite.

UFO Crash and Retrieval - Missouri, 1941
Published: 9:50 AM 10/17/2010

Depiction: Missouri Crash 1941

One of the most mysterious stories of a crashed UFO with alien bodies preceded the well known Roswell event by some six years. This case was first brought to investigators by Leo Stringfield in his book "UFO Crash / Retrievals: The Inner Sanctum."

He opened a tantalizing account of a military controlled UFO crash retrieval which is still being researched today. The details of the case were sent to him in a letter from one Charlette Mann, who related her minister-grandfather's deathbed confession of being summoned to pray over alien crash victims outside of Cape Girardeau, Missouri in the spring of 1941.

Reverend William Huffman had been an evangelist for many years, but had taken the resident minister reigns of the Red Star Baptist Church in early 1941. Church records corroborate his employment there during the period in question.

After receiving this call to duty, he was immediately driven the 10-15 mile journey to some woods outside of town. Upon arriving at the scene of the crash, he saw policemen, fire department personnel, FBI agents, and photographers already mulling through the wreckage.

He was soon asked to pray over three dead bodies. As he began to take in the activity around the area, his curiosity was first struck by the sight of the craft itself.

Expecting a small plane of some type, he was shocked to see that the craft was disc-shaped, and upon looking inside he saw hieroglyphic-like symbols, indecipherable to him.

He then was shown the three victims, not human as expected, but small alien bodies with large eyes, hardly a mouth or ears, and hairless.

Immediately after performing his duties, he was sworn to secrecy by military personnel who had taken charge of the crash area. He witnessed these warnings being given to others at the scene also.

As he arrived back at his home at 1530 Main Street, he was still in a state of mild shock, and could not keep his story from his wife Floy, and his sons. This late night family discussion would spawn the story that Charlette Mann would hear from her grandmother in 1984, as she lay dying of cancer at Charlette's home while undergoing radiation therapy.

Charlette was told the story over the span of several days, and although Charlette had heard bits and pieces of this story before, she now demanded the full details.

As her grandmother tolerated her last few days on this Earth, Charlette knew it was now or never to find out everything she could before this intriguing story was lost with the death of her grandmother.

She also learned that one of the members of her grandfather's congregation, thought to be Garland D. Fronabarger, had given him a photograph taken on the night of the crash. This picture was of one of the dead aliens being help up by two men.

Charlette Mann gave, in her own words, an account of what she knew for a television documentary. Some of that account is given here:

"I saw the picture originally from my dad who had gotten it from my grandfather who was a Baptist minister in Cape Girardeau Missouri in the Spring of ‘41. I saw that [picture] and asked my grandmother at a later time she was at my home fatally ill with cancer so we had a frank discussion.

"She said that grandfather was called out in the spring of 1941 in the evening around 9:00-9:30, that someone had been called out to a plane crash outside of town and would he be willing to go to minister to people there which he did."

"Upon arrival it was a very different situation. It was not a conventional aircraft, as we know it. He described it as a saucer that was metallic in color, no seams, did not look like anything he had seen. It had been broken open in one portion, and so he could walk up and see that.

"In looking in he saw a small metal chair, gauges and dials and things he had never seen. However, what impressed him most was around the inside there were inscriptions and writings, which he said he did not recognize, but were similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics."

"There were 3 entities, or non-human people, lying on the ground. Two were just outside the saucer, and a third one was further out. His understanding was that perhaps that third one was not dead on impact. There had been mention of a ball of fire, yet there was fire around the crash site, but none of the entities had been burned and so father did pray over them, giving them last rites.

"There were many people there, fire people, photographers, and so they lifted up one, and two men on either side stood him up and they stretched his arms out, they had him up under the armpits and out here.

As I recall from the picture I saw, he was about 4 feet tall, appeared to have no bone structure, soft looking. He had a suit on, or we assume it was a suit, it could have been his skin, and what looked like crinkled, soft aluminum foil. I recall it had very long hands, very long fingers, and I think there were three but I cannot swear to that."

“My grandfather upon arrival, said there were already several people there on the scene, two that he assumed were local photographers, fire people, and so not long after they arrived, military just showed up, surrounded the area, took them off in groups separately, and spoke to each of them.

"Grandfather didn't know what was said to the others, but he was told ‘this didn't happen, you didn't see this, this is national security, it is never to be talked about again.’

"My grandfather was an honorable man, being a preacher, that’s all that needed to be said to him. And so he came home and told the story to my dad, who was there, and my grandmother and my uncle. Now my mother was expecting at the time, so she was off in the bedroom."

"My sister was born May 3, 1941, so we are assuming this was the middle to the last of April. And he never spoke of it again. But about two weeks later, one of the men who had a personal camera that he had put in his shirt pocket, approached grandfather and said I think someone needs a copy of this.

"I have one and I would like you to keep one. So that's how it came about that grandfather had the picture to begin with. But he never spoke of it again. The other people seem to be very intimidated and very frightened and paranoid."

Other living supporting witnesses include Charlette Mann’s sister who confirmed her story in a notarized sworn affidavit, and the living brother of the Cape Girardeau County sheriff in 1941, Clarance R. Schade. He does remember hearing the account of the crash, yet does not have many details. He does recall hearing of a "spaceship with little people."

Depiction of alien There are also Fire Department records of the date of the crash. This information does confirm the military swearing department members to secrecy, and also the removal of all evidence from the scene by military personnel.

Guy Huffman, Charlette's father also told the story of the crash, and had in his possession the photograph of the dead alien. He showed the picture to a photographer friend of his, Walter Wayne Fisk.

He has been contacted by Stanton Friedman, but would not release any pertinent information.

Charlette had no luck in getting Fish to return calls or answer letters. It has been rumored that Fisk was an advisor to the President, and if this was the case, would account for his silence on the facts of the Missouri crash.

This case ends like many others, but appears by all indications to be authentic. All who have come in contact with Charlette Mann found her to be a trustworthy person who is not given to sensationalism, and has sought no gain from her account.

There is still research being done on the Missouri crash, and hopefully more information will be forthcoming to validate this remarkable case.

ADDENDUM: 02-18-04 - Local UFO probe Researcher seeks answers to report of crash in 1941 
By Peggy O'Farrel, Southeast Missourian

A Virginia man is investigating the possibility that a UFO crashed near Cape Girardeau in 1941. "That would be six years before Roswell," said James Westwood of Centreville, Va., referring to the 1947 incident in which the government allegedly recovered and then covered up a UFO crash in New Mexico.

"That would put Cape Girardeau County on the UFO map," he said.

Southeast Missouri already is known for UFO activity. Dr. Harley Rutledge, a former chairman of the physics department at Southeast Missouri State University who is now retired, has investigated reports of strange sights seen flying through the skies near Piedmont and other UFO reports.

"Project Identification: The First Scientific Field Study of UFO Phenomena," outlines Rutledge's research.

Westwood said Rutledge told him he has not heard of the 1941 incident. Westwood, a retired Navy man and engineer, is looking for people who may remember an incident from 1941 when some type of aircraft reportedly crashed approximately 3 to 15 miles outside Cape Girardeau.

Westwood bases his investigation on an account by Charlotte Mann, a Texas woman whose grandfather, the Rev. William Huffman, was the pastor of Red Star Baptist Church from 1941 to 1944.

Leonard H. Stringifield, a renowned UFO investigator, recounted Mann's story in the July 1991 issue of his "Status Report," a monthly publication on UFO activities and investigations.

Mann told Stringfield her grandfather got a call one spring night from police asking him to accompany them to the site of an airplane crash outside town in case the victims needed a clergyman.

"A car was sent to get him, but grandmother said it wasn't a police car," Mann said in Stingfield's recounting of the story.

"When Huffman got to the crash scene, Mann said, he noticed one piece of the wreckage that appeared to have a rounded shape with no edges or seams," and a "very shiny, metallic finish."

"Police officers, plainclothes men, and military officers were already at the scene sifting through the wreckage, Mann said. Laid to one side of the scene were "three bodies, not human," she recounted.

"It was hard for him to tell if they had on suits or if it was their skin, but they were covered head to foot in what looked like wrinkled aluminum foil," Mann said.

"He could see no hair on their bodies and they had no ears. They were small framed like a child, about 4 feet tall, but had larger heads and longer arms."

Their faces had large, oval-shaped eyes, no noses, just holes and no lips, just small slits for mouths," Mann said.

Huffman was told by one of the military officers at the scene not to tell anyone what he had witnessed for security reasons, Mann told Stringfield. Huffman told his wife, Floy, and their two sons what he had seen when he returned home from the crash site, but never spoke of it again, said Mann.

Huffman died in 1959. His wife, who died in 1984, told Mann the story. A few weeks after the crash, Huffman was apparently given a photo of two men holding one of the corpses found at the scene. Mann's father loaned the photo to a friend but never saw it again.

Now Westwood, who read Mann's account in Stringfield's publication, is looking for others who may remember hearing about the crash. "What you need here is another source, at least one other person who says, I sort of remember this," Westwood said.

"Even if it's a second-hand account, you've at least got another source."

"Mann's account says the crash happened in the spring. Westwood speculates it may actually have happened in the fall because of the mention of a field fire caused by the crash. In the spring, he reasons, vegetation would have been too wet to burn easily. "But in the fall, it's very dry," he said.

He also speculates the military officers on the scene may have been called in from an Army Air Corps base in Sikeston at the time. If the crash happened, the military and police wouldn't have known what they were looking at, Westwood said, because Roswell and the other early UFO sightings hadn't happened.

And the incident may have been covered up for military security reasons since the U.S. was gearing up for World War II, he said.

"It wouldn't be implausible" for the incident to have been reported as an airplane crash," Westwood said.

Westwood began researching Mann's story at the beginning of the year. He has been in Cape Girardeau for the last week reviewing local records and looking for potential sources. He hasn't had much luck. So far no one he has talked to has admitted to knowing anything.

"There isn't anything that I would consider even close," Westwood said.

He found a report of a student pilot's airplane crash near Morley in Scott County in May 1941, and a local pilot told him about another crash near Oak Ridge that happened in spring 1941.

The other problem is the Huffmans left the area not long after the alleged crash. The Cape Girardeau city directory lists the Huffmans from 1942 to 1944, but they aren't listed in the 1945 directory.

Records from the Southeast Missourian say Huffman became the pastor of the church in September 1941.

And Stringfield, who investigated hundreds of reports of UFO crashes and retrievals, died in 1994. His family has refused to release his files to other researchers.

Westwood says he has never seen a UFO or been in contact with extraterrestrials.

"There's no doubt in my mind that UFOs are real flying objects from outer space," he said. He points to similarities in thousands of sightings and reports from people who have reported having contact with extraterrestrials as evidence that something is out there."

But what he calls the "cultism" surrounding the study of UFOs and false reports by attention-seeking hysterics detracts from evidence given by witnesses or people who claim contact, Westwood says, "aren't any crazier than anybody else."

Tracing UFO reports is "an interesting kind of detective story," Westwood said.

"It's a Sherlock Holmes kind of thing in which you have to sort through a lot of BS looking for those nuggets.

"In the end, some of the things fit, and some things don't."

The Roswell crash and recovery isn't the only UFO crash in the annals of the study of UFOs, Westwood said. "It's just the best known," he said.

1950 Alien Encounter at Varese, Italy

On the 24th day of April 1950, 42 year old factory worker Bruno Facchini was working the late shift, and stepped outside to get some fresh air on his break. His home city of Varese in Italy had just had a severe thunderstorm.

The last distant streaks of lightning were still visible as Bruno decided to see if the electrical system had popped a circuit breaker. He was taken completely aback at what he saw not far from the factory doors.

Investigating a bright glowing light which he thought was part of a factory transformer problem, he was shocked to see a circular shaped, glowing object with a ladder descended from its bottom.

At the top of the UFO was a greenish glow which partially obscured a light-skinned being. The unusual being appeared to be welding something on the craft. Bruno's first impression of the craft was that it was a type of experimental craft from a nearby air base.

His impression was quickly altered by the sight of several other small alien creatures which emerged from the craft. In a moment or two, the ladder began to be drawn up into the mysterious craft, and the beings began to reenter the craft through an invisible door of some kind.

The full realization of what he was witnessing sent Bruno into a full run away from the frightening encounter. As he fled, he heard a sound like that of a large beehive. One of the remaining creatures pointed a type of weapon at the scared worker, and a beam of force knocked him to the ground.

Although in pain, he was able to watch the last activities of the strange aliens as they prepared the craft to take off. The beehive like sound increased as the object made its way into the skies and vanished from view.

The next day, Bruno made a full report of his encounter to the police force. There were signs still visible of the activities of the night before. Police found burned patches on the ground, and indentation marks of an extremely heavy object.

Also found were some odd, green pieces of a metal-like substance. Bruno recounted the welding operation, and suggested that the green pieces of debris were refuse of the process.

The fragments were analyzed. The results of this test concluded that the fragments were an "anti-friction" material, containing several types of metal along with a lubricant. In September 1953, UFO investigators had their own tests conducted on the green substance.

A scientific institute specializing in metallurgy assessed that the fragments were 74% copper, 19% tin, and other trace elements. The substance, under heavy magnification was a yellow-white color, but did not contain any metals which could not be found on Earth.

These conclusions did not entirely rule out the possibility of an extraterrestrial connection in the case of Bruno Facchini. There is no way to conclude that the metal composition could not be made on another planet.

Facchini's accept was taken very seriously by all who knew him. He was a respectable man, well liked, and considered to be reliable and trustworthy. He gained nothing from his tale of the strange object and occupants he described on the night of April 24, 1950.
