Modern Time Close Encounters and Alien Contacts from Turkey By Farah Yurdozu
My native Turkish land has always been very rich with UFO sightings. Our mythology and historical records show numerous close encounters with mysterious beings who come from stars or other dimensions.
The original name of my Turkish ancestors was “GokTurks” which means “Sky People.” Ancient Turks believed that their leader was visited by a woman who came from a star. And this mysterious woman who descended in a ball of light got pregnant from the Turkish tribe’s leader. She gave birth to 3 sons who were called Moon, Star and Sun. They became the founders of new Turkish generations.
Symbolic or historical, all these narratives gave an identity to my nation. Turkish people are very spiritual and open minded to the idea of Extraterrestrial Intelligent life. As you know, also the Turkish press is extremely open minded to UFO sightings. When there is a UFO sighting in any big city or a small town of the country you can see the coverage on the front pages of important daily newspapers. I guess the knowledge is in our genes, who knows?
In this article I want to introduce you 3 Turkish contactees. Don’t worry, they are not historical or mythological characters from the past. They are from the present time, and they had very normal, simple lives—until they encountered the Aliens.
Case # 1-A Famous Contactee from Turkey, and the Map of the Universe
By Farah Yurdozu
Contactee: Behcet Ocal
Behcet Ocal lived in a small village near Nevsehir / Cappadocia in central Turkey. This area is famous for underground cities and multiple UFO flaps. He is known as the most famous UFO contactee from our country. When he started to have his first close encounters in 1948 he was a 15-year-old shepherd living with his family. In his very simple life style he didn’t have the chance to get any education. And there was no power, no radio or movies etc. in the village where he was living.
That day when he was taking care of the animals outside of the village he heard a strange sound from the sky. The first thing he saw was a bright ball of light. In his own words, it was stronger than the sun light. In that moment he felt a weird sense of palpitation all over his body. When the ball of light changed its shape he was clearly able to see a rocket shape object decending from the sky in a vertical fashion. The object had a metallic look and it was almost 30 feet long. Behcet Ocal was scared but at the same time he says that he was in another state of mind.
A door on the object was opened and 3 visitors came out, two men and one woman. According to Behcet’s description they were humanoids and they had very big eyes. Both of the men had completely shaved heads, and the woman had long hair. The three had the same size and height as if they were made from the same pattern. Their clothing was very foreign to a young village boy of 1948. They wore a kind of fitted jump suit. For Behcet one of the most interesting things was what he called their “illuminated tool” hanging on their necks. The tool also contacted their waist and there were buttons or keys over the panel of the tool and Behcet remembers lights on the panel.
He was in panic. Behcet had no idea about space, space ships or Extra Terrestrials. All he could think was that the strange looking people were coming from the United States or from Russia. In that moment telepathic communication started. They told him not to be scared and that they were not going to harm him. After these first words he felt much more relaxed and as he says, he never felt so peaceful. The visitors didn’t name their home planet but they told him that they came from “another world.” All communication was telephatic. One of the ETs extended his hand to Behcet. The visitors’s palm was round and deep like a small size bowl. When he was touched by the ET the shepherd had a kind of shock, fell down and fainted. When his family found him later the visitors had gone and Behcet was still unconscious. He was taken to the hospital with skin irritation and burns.
Behcet was a quiet and shy man, and he kept his secret to himself until 1977. But between all those years he was in contact with his Extra Terrestrial friends. Only that first visit was face to face; after that they never got together in person. Instead Behcet saw them in a kind of big screen which used to open in front of him, usually at night.
When Behcet had his first media-newspaper interviews in 1977, he showed a Universe Map that he had drawn with the help of Extra Terrestrials. At the beginning military and scientists were somewhat interested in him. But as far as we know Behcet Ocal didn’t get enough much from them. So his case was forgotten with time. He wasn’t interested in being a celebrity because of his experience. He didn’t try to sell his story. In a way he gave it away to the press of 1970s.
Behcet never wrote a book nor did he make any TV appearances. He kept living in his remote town in the central part of Turkey. He wasn’t a sect leader and didn’t try to have fans or followers. But he believed in his experience and for some reason he prefered to put a limit between himself and the media. Maybe he saw and knew more than he was telling, but all his secrets or his realities will be a part of the legends in the next generations.
