UFO Investigators Delve into Mexico Mystery
UFO Depiction

One evening in August 1974, Johnnie Chambers and her 10-year-old son, John, were traveling in the mountains north of Presidio when they saw a bright light in the sky that looked like half of a bright sunrise.

But it seemed to have boiling clouds in it and colors of blue, purple and red. Chambers stopped and looked, fascinated with the unusual sight that covered a good part of the horizon.

She figured it was some sort of a crash in the mountains of Mexico. She went home to her ranch and because she didn't hear anyone talking about it the next few days, she sort of forgot about it; until this year.

Her son John, now approaching 50, heard about a UFO conference in Presidio on Oct. 19 and 20 that featured investigators who were researching a 1974 UFO crash near Coyame, Mexico, some 40 miles south of Presidio. John and his mother showed up at the conference to tell the investigators what they saw 38 years ago.

Noe Torres of Edinburg and Ruben Uriarte of Oakland, Calif. have outstanding credentials as UFO investigators. They have been researching the Coyame incident for years and gave presentations at the conference about what they have uncovered. They have written two editions of a book titled "Mexico's Roswell."

The story is that an unidentified flying object traveling at 2,000 miles per hour collided with a small plane heading south from El Paso. The flaming wreckage of both aircraft fell to the ground and started an investigation that continues today.

"The small plane was pretty well destroyed in the crash, but the UFO was intact," said Torres. "The Mexican Army figured it was a small plane crash and didn't expect to find any survivors, so they waited until the next day to get to the scene.

"When they arrived, they found pieces of the plane and a silver disc approximately 17 feet across and six feet tall. Twenty-four Mexican soldiers surrounded the craft, amazed at their find, and loaded it onto a flatbed truck and headed back to their base at Ojinaga. An hour later, all 24 soldiers were dead. The truck veered off the road and rolled to a stop."

Torres said the U.S. was monitoring all this, listening in on radio communication between the soldiers on the ground and their headquarters.

"The U.S. flew a reconnaissance plane over the site of the truck and bodies. A flight investigation team was assembled and four helicopters took them from Fort Bliss in El Paso to an area about 20 miles south of Candelaria, Texas.

"The U.S. team, wearing biohazard gear, dropped a huge chain from a helicopter and hooked it to the UFO and took it away. They then set off explosives to cleanse the area of contamination. The UFO was taken to a secret government base in the Davis Mountains, and then transferred it to an unmarked truck head for Atlanta, Georgia and the Center for Disease Control to see if they could find contaminants.

"From there it went to another military compound, probably Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. That's where the trail stops."

The Orbs
UFO Depiction
Published: 2:54 PM 12/4/2012

by Chris Holly

The first thing I want to do before you read this article on Orbs is to be sure you understand the definition I am referring to when I use the term Orb to describe what I talking about.

When I use the term Orb I am referring to large objects the size of an automobile or small airplane. I am not talking about the orbs that those who talk about ghosts, spiritual encounters or other entities describe. The Orbs I discuss in this article are large flying un identified objects seen in the sky. They are completely different and not connected to the small balls of light seen in houses or yards etc.

I want it perfectly clear this article concerns something far different which is connected to the UFO anomalies of our time of an alien nature and not of those connected to ghostly or spiritual unknowns.

With that said let me begin my journey of explaining my experience with this growing concern of Orb shaped flying crafts.

During this past summer I wrote a few articles about the constant on going reports of Orb sightings that filled my email box was left as voice messages or were called in to me from the people living on Long Island here in New York. At first I found it interesting. As the reports continued to come in I started to recognize something very odd was happening, by the end of the summer I could not get away from the continuous reports that Long Islanders were having of large Orbs flying across the Long Island sky.

The reports were all basically the same. Orbs about the size of a small airplane, others compared it to the size of a Volkswagen bug- was being seen mostly along the south shore coast of Long Island. They were silent no noise at all. They were all very bright with no blinking lights or definition. The objects were solid in color with a plasma type swirl at times to its interior. The Orbs would change in color from white to orange and red and repeat this pattern or stay locked in one of those colors.

The Orbs flew in formations of two or three up to five at a time and would change direction and formation while flying. They also would stop and hover silently in the air as if watching something before deciding to continue on their journey. One group of men reported a sighting that took place as they stood in fear in a large deserted dark parking lot in Islip, New York.

While the group of men stood there talking two Orbs circled them above the tree line that surrounded the parking lot. The Orbs stopped circling the men and one Orb hovered over the trees as the other hovered over the men. My guess is that this group of men was very lucky as I think they were in real danger when these Orbs obviously were deciding to have more contact or even take this group of men. Instead after hovering above them the Orbs decided to continue on and gained altitude and continued on their flying course towards the Atlantic Ocean. They were very lucky men.

Reports kept coming in and I tried to continue to post them on my site in an effort to inform the public this odd activity was going on over Long Island. I was aware that similar sightings were being reported as well in other parts of the country including a great many over the Pacific Ocean coast line.

Since the ocean seemed to be involved as a destination with the sightings here in New York I could not help assume that the Orbs were connected to the open sea as either a sort of highway for their travels or maybe a landing area under the water’s surface. The fact is since I have no idea what these large Orb objects are I can only make guesses about who what or where they come from or why they exist much less why they are flying over Long Island.

The summer ended, however, the Orbs reports continued. I was going to address the issue again in yet another article when life as I knew it was completely changed by the Super Storm of the Century Hurricane Sandy.

Long Island along with the eastern part of the United States was hit with a strange huge deadly destroying storm and matters of the paranormal were side stepped while matters of daily survival filled my time.

The days that followed were filled with worrying about gas lines, hot water and staying warm not to mention the huge live power line that was lying across my lawn. We had to put out one fire that started to burn across the side of my house due to the live wire.

My energy and time was directed to day to day living. I did not think about or care about the Orbs or for that matter anything at all other than my family and staying alive during the difficult days following the devastating destroying storm.

All that quickly changed as life intended yet another path for me to travel which was to focus me once and for all on the matter of the Orb invasion.

About a week, maybe a little longer, after the storm hit my area was stable enough for us to have a few areas with power where stores were up and running and we were able to shop once again for food and supplies.

I had a few family members who lived in areas located along the south shore coast line of Long Island who were told to leave their homes living with me during the storm. My brother and his son as well as a nephew his wife and three children all were with us. We all decided to go to the large Stop and Shop Food Market in Northport to fill up on food and other supplies not to mention get away from the house and fallen trees that now filled our days. We took two vehicles and all headed off to the Stop and Shop.

It was just after dark when we pulled in to the large parking lot of the large Stop and Shop store. The night was clear and very dark. It was a typical lovely fall night here on Long Island. We parked in the middle of the parking lot and my family and I were walking towards the store. About 20 or so other people were milling around with carts full of food when my brother stopped dead in his tracks while walking in front of me and pointed towards the sky and yelled to the rest of us: "What is that?"

We all looked up towards where he was pointing and that is where this story for me gets very strange. There right in front of our eyes above the trees at an altitude where a small plane or low flying helicopter would be- slowly flew three large Orbs.

I have seen UFOs before in my life. I had one incident where I had a large craft hover right over my head. That sighting changed my life. This one was also remarkable and has become carved clearly into my brain as something I will never forget.

There above the heads of my family and the other people in the parking lot flew three large Orbs. They were flying in a V formation. Flying is not the proper term I would use to describe how these objects moved. The three Orbs glided as if on ice. They had a smooth flawless movement.

They did not have the motion actions of a plane at all. They did not float like a balloon or have the wind driven action of a Chinese lantern. The Orbs moved as if they were sliding on flat mirrored ice. I cannot explain it as I think it is something you need to see to understand. They were moving fast and quickly changed their position from a V formation to a straight line. As soon as they did this they made a hard left turn without changing speed and headed south towards the Atlantic Ocean.

They were coming from the north or the Long Island Sound. The three Orbs were pure white. Once again unless you saw them you cannot easily explain the brightness or color. It was similar to the new LED Christmas lights that are far brighter than the old ones. They were just so bright that they stood out against the dark night like glistening diamonds. They were solid white.

Nothing blinked or moved on the objects and I could not see any details other than a large white Orb. The color or light seemed to have a slight movement maybe plasma or liquid. It was barely detectable but you could see a slight slow flow inside the light. It was simply amazing. We all stood frozen mouths dropped as the large Orbs glided overhead.

It took maybe 30 seconds for the three Orbs to pass above us and turn and head towards the Atlantic Ocean. I could not believe what I was seeing. During the summer I spent many nights sitting on my deck or on the beach at night with my family and friends watching the sky looking for Orbs as so many were being reported.

We were sitting with cameras and video equipment but never had any luck and did not find anything but the moon and stars as they should be all summer long. Now without anything at hand and with Orbs being the last thing on my mind I stood in the Stop and Shop Super Market seeing something I could never imagine I would see.

I must tell you that the Orbs are spectacular to see with your own eyes. The movement and color and brightness of the objects are unlike anything any of us who witnessed the Orbs had ever seen before. Standing there I knew I should be more fearful and take cover from what I do not understand.

However, I stood frozen unable to move or take my eyes off the three incredible objects. We watched as they flew south towards the Atlantic Ocean when we spotted anther Orb moving in the same odd fashion of gliding as if on ice heading towards the first three that already passed over us. This large Orb was moving faster than the first three. It seemed to be bigger in size then the other three as well.

This Orb was without question the Big Daddy of the group. It was so bright yet you could look directly at it, the others were the same way. They were a brilliant bright light but you could look directly into it unlike the sun.

This Orb was a deep magnificent red in color. The plasma effect was much more noticeable in the interior of this Orb then it was in the white Orbs. The interior of this large red Orb seemed to have a slow swirling movement of something. I cannot explain.

It was not a gas or a solid substance; I do not know how to describe it. Once again you have to observe these incredible objects in order to understand what we witnessed.

This red Orb moved at a very fast pace following the course and making the same turn without any change in speed towards the first three white Orbs. Quickly this Orb crossed over our heads and followed the first three out towards the Ocean. The entire sighting took less than a minute and was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I was grateful so many people I know and love were there to witness this event with me.

Of course this sighting has been a main topic of conversation at my house over the days since we saw them. My family and I have talked endlessly about what they could possibly be along with the many other questions we have concerning these unearthly looking objects. We have no clue at all who is controlling these objects, where they come from, where they are going and what their purpose might be.

I am not going to pretend to know or try to impress you with all kinds of scenarios about them. All I can tell you is that they exist. People are seeing them and they are unlike anything else in the sky now or in the past. I did not feel they were human in nature meaning that they did not seem to be products of mankind but that is just my gut feeling.

I will tell you that these objects were in your face not caring or trying not to be seen. They obviously want to or do not care if they are seen. They seem, from the reports I have been given, to be based or travel mostly around the Atlantic Ocean. Of course I live on a large Island which makes it nearly impossible not to be near the Ocean however these objects never seem to be spotted heading west or east which would take them towards land, they always seem to be heading out to sea.

Lastly I have to comment that I once wrote in one of my articles that this past summer seemed to be the ‘summer of the Orb for Long Island’. I must admit I find the fact that so many of these Orbs were seen right before being hit with the storm of the century to be a bit of an odd coincidence, if you believe in coincidences that is.

Hurricane Sandy was a strange odd storm enormous in size and bizarre in its behavior. I have already written about the strangeness of the storm. Now having witnessed these incredible large odd Orb objects I cannot help think there is something very strange going on that we are not paying attention to that is somehow in some way connected to all the strange things that are happening around us.

I think we are in for some very rough roads ahead. Something is not right. This storm was abnormal; these Orbs are without question unearthly or at least not common to the exterior of this planet as we understand it. This is an era of time that will change our path as humans forever.

I have lived through and tasted some of what is heading our way and let me tell you – it was a bitter harsh bite of what may be what is ahead for us all and frankly I did not like any of it.

I hope you all start to pay attention to what is going on around you. Stop explaining away things you cannot explain. I know it is easier to just think it is all just nothing or something you do not want to deal with so shoo it away. I understand that is easier to keeps your head hidden in a hole where you do not have to deal with things.

It is also the best way to be the one who does not survive what seems to be what is sure to come. We all need to start taking a new approach to our thinking about things we do not understand.

Without question life is getting harder and more difficult on this planet every single day. You need to keep your eyes on your surroundings, your focus clear and your mind open. We are in a new era of time and things will continue to flow as more and more unusual things and sightings happen around us.

It is not the time to hide or deny, it is time for you to be aware and alert. All I can do is report to you what I see and what others tell me they are seeing. It is up to you to either toss this information away as foolishness or use it to be ready for whatever may come your way.

I will admit I did the wrong thing when I witnessed these incredible Orbs. I should have had my family take cover in the store and moved away from the dark parking lot. I was among a group of about 30 or so people and it was unlikely that the Orbs would attempt to hurt or take that many people with so many other people nearby.

However, if you have an experience like mine, please try to remember to protect yourself and those with you first and foremost. It is always best to be safe instead of sorry. We do not know what these things are that we witness in our sky. They are unknown and with that said we need to realize they could be good and helpful objects driven by kind intelligent life.

They could also be dangerous killing machines that are evil and not care about mankind at all. You have a 50/50 chance with the unknown and that odd is just not enough to risk my life or the ones I love. Try to always focus on safety first.

For now keep your eyes open and your mind focused as we move forward in a future of unknowns and adventure that is ahead for us all. We now are up to our eyeballs in a new era of life on planet earth along with whom or whatever else may share our space in this universe.

Canadian Infantry Man Reports UFO Sighting in Bermuda Triangle
UFO Depiction
Published: 12:03 PM 12/6/2012

Bermuda Triangle - December, 2011

Hello, I have a weird UFO experience and I know its alien. I’m a soldier in the Canadian forces; Army infantry.

I thought of UFOs before but with my military experience I am skeptical that most, if not all, are man-made, until last December.

I took my family on a cruise that traveled from New York City to Florida, then to the Bahamas. On our way back I was alone on the balcony in our private room, enjoying the night.

I looked up to the stars and saw a shooting star; it flashed a split second and then curved, right towards the ship. It kept getting bigger, then it went into some fog caused by the smoke stacks.

As I was peering, there it was; a dull, reddish orange glowing orb about the size of a penny. It seemed to be 300 meters away in my estimatation.

I was terrified. I've fought in Afghanistan and seen crazy things, but this was one of the most terrifying moments of my life as it flew away in a blink of an eye.

I stumbled back into our room. My mom asked, "What’s wrong," and my brother was there too. I told them and only convinced my brother.

When I looked at the map of where we were, we were in the Bermuda triangle; the west corner of it. I notified the crew, but they didn’t care.

I almost called my chain of command, but I didn’t. How do I get my unit to take in that this is a serious threat? The craft could have easily just blown up the cruise ship, which is why I was scared to death.

Extraterrestrial Chorus Heard in Radiation Belts
Van Allen probes capture sound of electromagnetic disturbances - SPACE’S SOUNDSCAPE
Published: 11:36 AM 12/8/2012

By Alexandra Witze

The Van Allen probes, launched in August, are investigating belts of charged particles trapped by Earth’s magnetic field.

The probes recently recorded “chorus” waves, electromagnetic disturbances that ripple through the belts. Johns Hopkins Univ. Applied Physics Laboratory Click here to hear the recording SAN FRANCISCO — Is it alien birds singing alongside crickets? Or the sound of radio waves sweeping through Earth’s magnetosphere? A recently released recording is a little bit of both.

The soundtrack captures “chorus” waves, electromagnetic disturbances that ripple through belts of charged particles that surround Earth. The chorus becomes audible to the human ear when translated into sound waves, as heard in a recording made by space physicists at the University of Iowa.

Ham radio operators have known about this chorus for decades, but scientists now have a lot more data on it thanks to a pair of satellites known as the Van Allen probes.

NASA launched them in August to fly through and study Earth’s two main radiation belts, called the Van Allen belts — an inner one made mostly of protons and an outer one made mostly of electrons.

The electronics on most spacecraft get fried if they spend too much time in these belts, but the Van Allen probes are built with components that won’t fritz out when charged particles hit them.

Already scientists are uncovering surprises from the mission, some of which they reported December 4 at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The radiation belts turn out to be much more active than anyone had suspected, having shifted their location and intensity each time the probes swept through on their nine-hour orbits.

New measurements also show exactly where the highest energy protons lurk in the inner belt.

And then there’s the chorus. An instrument that measures electromagnetic fields and waves recorded the chorus — “striking and beautiful,” said University of Iowa physicist Craig Kletzing.

The chorus usually appears on the dawn side of the planet; the probes have now recorded it in 16-bit audio. “Now we have all the components to know how the waves are moving,” Kletzing said. “We didn’t have that before.”

Besides their aural beauty, choral waves and other Van Allen findings will have practical use. Engineers need that data to better design satellites to make it through the dangerous belts.

“Any space vehicle has to penetrate these regions to get outside,” said Joseph Mazur of the Aerospace Corporation in Chantilly, Va. “If you don’t spend a lot of time there that’s fine — but we really need to measure and specify what’s going on in the inner belt.”

Pyramid-like Object Spotted over Tennessee
UFO Depiction
Published: 3:23 PM 12/4/2012

Tullahoma, Tennessee - July, 2009

It was during the month of July, 2009 when this happened. Although I'm unsure of the exact day, I do know this is the exact month because I was driving to Tullahoma, Tennessee to pick up my aunt for a late viewing of the Ice Age 3 movie at the local theater.

I was driving on I-24W toward Nashville and I took exit 111 into Manchester to drive onto Tullahoma. After one exits 111, to get to this destination, there is another left, then straight drive into Tullahoma.

Right after I made the left turn, I saw a hovering pyramid above the treetops. It was stationary in its hovering; it did not rotate or ascend at all.

I didn't have a camera, or a cell phone that would've taken a good enough picture, but I am an artist and I made sure to get a good look at the flying object so that I could draw it later on.

I knew it was a UFO at first sight of it as I am keen on paranormal subjects. It did not frighten me, but it was shocking to witness and hard continue my concentration on driving my car. The object was a three-sided pyramid.

It was a metallic, shiny black color. On the first side I saw, there were 10 circular white lights, stacked in rows (4, 3, 2, and 1).

The best way I can describe these lights is to compare them to the lights that overlook a baseball game. On the next side, I looked back to see three small lights near its top, each different colors - red, green, and blue.

None of the lights pulsed, but the 10 white ones were especially bright. I was topping a hill when I first saw it and after crossing it, I could see underneath the craft and it was hollow.

The craft was hovering just above the tree tops, I’d say about six to eight feet above the leaves. On the opposite side of the median/road, cars were pulling over.

On my side of the road, all of us were slamming our brakes and two cars ahead of me, there was nearly a wreck. This was proof to me that I wasn't the only one witnessing this.

The craft was about 20 ft, wide and was a proportional triangle on each side, so perhaps about 20 ft. tall as well. As I've said, the craft was hollow.

I only watched the craft as long as it took for the traffic to continue moving forward. There was no immediate place to turn around or I would've come back to the opposite side of the road and pulled over as some other cars were doing.

Archived Case of the Week

Husband and Wife's Close Encounter in Kilgore, Texas
UFO Depiction
Published: 11:45 AM 12/8/2012

Kilgore, Texas - 10-24-09

My wife and I were returning from the home of friends around 2 am. We live in a rual area where there are no street lights.

When we turned on Bell Rd. at about a 10 o'clock position, there was a huge flash. We compared it to a transformer explosion.

There was a wall of light moving slowly, about as fast as I can walk, moving toward us.

The radio and engine of my truck shut down. It was very dark outside, but when the wall moved past us, it was light enough to read a newspaper.

We don't know how long this light was on us. The wall moved back over us just as slowly as it had come. When it reached the glowing ball, it flashed and was gone.

The radio came back on, so I cranked the truck and we came on home. It was dark on one side of the wall of light and very bright on the other.

What was strange is that we weren't excited or scared, just relaxed like it was an everyday thing. We didn't talk about it for a couple days.

When we did talk, we agreed we both saw the same thing. As far as we can tell we haven't had any adverse effects because of this.

I just feel crazy telling anyone. We can't tell how long we were in this light.
