UFOs Over Italy

On the surface many reported eye witness accounts of UFOs seem to be isolated to the United States but there are as many reported sightings worldwide. Thanks to Philip Mantle of Flying Disk press over the next few issues we will feature excerpts from the latest releases in their UFO’s Over… series. The first case is from Italy and happened a mere fifty days following the infamous Kenneth Arnold sighting of nine boomerang shaped craft near Mt Rainier, Washington and was recounted by a distinguished Milanese painter and writer.

THE RAVEO (VILA SANTINA) CE3 CASE

Originally published in Italian UFO magazine Clypeus (so-called due to the similarity of UFOs to the bronze shields used by Roman solderis) the following translation was undertaken by Flying Saucer Review editor Gordon Creighton and first appeared in 1966. It has recently been prominently featured in the book UFOs Over Italy by Roberto Pinotti.

The author of this account (now deceased) was a well-known Italian painter and writer who lived in Milan. His science fiction book “C’era una volta un Pianeta…” (Once Upon A Time There Was A Planet…) and its sequel “Quando ero Aborigeno” (When I Was An Aboriginal) were published by Mondadori in Milan. The subject of both was the exodus to Earth of advanced human-like inhabitants from a fifth planet from the Sun (between Mars and Jupiter) just before its explosion due to an atomic war and their mating, before their extinction, with Neanderthal hominids producing a new hybrid species: Homo Sapiens. Readers will have to form their own opinions as to whether the following account by Professor Luigi Rapuzzi (aka L.R. Johannis) is the report of a real experience destined to inspire his science fiction books as he later said and to anticipate the “Ancient Astronauts” theory.

James Gilliland

Three decades ago James Gilliland found his field of dreams, an idyllic ranch outside of Trout Lake, Washington under the shadow of the highly mysterious and spiritually active Mount Adams. If you’ve never heard of it then we recommend you do a little bit of research. What happens at ECETI (short for Enlightened Contact with ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) is the stuff of legend in UFO circles. With the imposing Mount Adams standing like some kind of sentinel over the ranch, and pine tree forests and the White Salmon River also bordering the grounds it may possibly be the best campsite in the world. But don’t expect to turn up unannounced and get a spot, there’s a reservation system which keeps numbers down to a minimum and ensures that guests aren’t the kind looking for a festival type experience. The ranch operates a strict alcohol and drug-free policy and for good reason. There’ll be so much going on you’ll need your faculties to be as sharp as possible in order to process it all. James Gilliland  himself is affable and softly spoken, full of the kind of wisdom that if taken on board is nothing but beneficial. He is a best-selling author, internationally known lecturer, has ‘died’ more than once and has experienced more multi-dimensional interactions than he can remember. Raised in the high desert close to Giant Rock near Landers, California – the location of the legendary contactee George Van Tassell conventions which went on for nearly 25 years. Speaking to us late last year as he and his team were closing up and securing the ranch up for the winter, he recalls watching Ralph Ring and Otis Carr build and test their Nikola Tesla inspired ‘flying saucers’ in the 1950s. Ships that used a pair of counter-rotating metal plates, spinning electromagnets and capacitors large enough to generate some sort of lift. Of course it wasn’t long before their experiments drew  the wrong kind of official attention and the FBI shut them down.

Before James was born, his dad had actually witnessed an extraterrestrial craft land on a highway, in New Mexico, he was driving. Unsurprisingly, the unannounced landing stopped the small amount traffic for quite some time. Predictably, someone got out of his car, fixing to fire his gun at the craft but was dissuaded by Gilliland Snr. When the craft finally departed the gathered ensemble of travellers ‘woke’ to find themselves back inside their cars, whereas most had remembered being out of their vehicles.

When he was 5 years old James had a severe case of bronchial pneumonia. While is hospital he remembers being visisted woman, dressed in blue, who kept coming to him, stroking his head and comforting him. Not so unusual you might think but James recalls quite clearly. “All the other women wore green in the hospital. This woman gave me a substance to eat, it had a consistency like ice cream but it wasn’t cold. I didn’t get sick after that, it was amazing” so who was this mysterious Nurse Nightingale? “I found out later that she’s a universal being called Mary, like the Catholic Mother Mary. She came to me and I’ve had a very close connection with this being all throughout my life…

ECETI

A Confirmation Of The Phenomenon

All is not running as smoothly as planned in the halls of To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, the UFO disclosure campaign headed by former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge. From the initial trumpets surrounding the announcement of the project and invitation to invest back in October 2017, this was quickly followed by a guarded sceptism as critics questioned a millionaire rock star asking for money? But for the most part, the noises from the established UFO community were encouraging.

Then came what was, briefly, the crowning moment, the announcement that seemed to be the reason for the existence of TTSA. The Pentagon admitted in national mainstream press that the CIA had spent $22million dollars investigating unidentified aeriel phenomena under the guise of a project called AATIP (Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program). The initial report from the New York Times saw newspaper sales and web traffic increase to incredible levels as the general public lapped up this ground breaking information. The rest of the world’s media followed suit of course, keen to cash in on what TTSA hoped would be the disclosure we’ve all been waiting for. And for a while that’s how it looked.

Former CIA officer and member of the AATIP program, Luis Elizondo, had become the new public face for TTSA and was paraded in front of the press to discuss what he knew about the program and what TTSA was working on. However, rumblings had already started in some quarters. The fact that Elizondo was a former Pentagon official and therefore part of the long-established enemy of truth and disclosure didn’t sit right with some people. Neither did the Intelligence backgrounds of some of the members of the project. It was all beginning to smell a bit like a CIA psy-op. A new infiltration program in a UFO community so desperate for the acknowledgement of extraterrestrials and their intelligently controlled craft from Government officials that they would seemingly lap up anything if it came from ‘confirmed’ sources.

When evidence came out suggesting the released gun-camera videos may not be all they were cracked up to be, and the fact that it was discovered an image used in the October presentation to depict a UFO seen from the USS Nimitz in 2004 was in fact a mylar balloon it quickly turned in to the undignified defeat of roshambo for TTSA. For the most part, the UFO community is pretty smart. Sure, there have been moments when the wheels have come off but is now really time to cast off dispersions about the most notorious of alphabet agencies and offer an olive branch – albeit on the end of a rather long barge pole? Tom DeLonge once remarked on CoastToCoast AM “it’s time for the UFO community to see these people are heroes, not the enemy.” or words to that effect. Who knows? After the mistakes of the past it’s going to take one helluva video to get some people back on side, but I want you to remember this. To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences brought the UFO question front and centre to the pages of the world’s mainstream media, not many can claim that honour.

TTSA

John DeSouza

It’s true, John DeSouza worked for ‘The Man’. A former FBI Special Agent, he worked for the Bureau for 25 years in counter terrorism, held top secret security clearances and worked in the violent crimes division, not that dissimilar to former MoD man Nick Pope. There is one stark difference though. Whereas Mr Pope nailed his colours to the mast and remains an open-minded sceptical believer in the UFO phenomenon, John DeSouza actively sought out the paranormal side of investigations when all other avenues had been exhausted. This work resulted in a handful of books to date detailing some of the less straight-forward cases the self confessed X-Man encountered during his time with the Bureau, and it’s those cases which have captured the imagination of the alternative community, even if he doesn’t believe E.T. is real – not in a physical sense anyway.

SOYM: You had a UFO experience when you were a child, is that right?

John DeSouza: Oh yes I talk about it in my book The Extradimensionals. When I was about ten years old I had an observation experience. I was with my family in New York City, we were at a party of some kind with hundreds of people, and it was really late at night. Me and a bunch of other little kids found each other and just kind of spilled out into the night at about 1am and we were just playing out in street. Something happened, I fell down and got hurt and the rest of the kids took off as they are prone to do and went back to the party. I was left there alone on the sidewalk just staring up between these two tall buildings. It was a very starry beautiful night and there appeared to be a dark spot where stars should be visible, like a large black ink cloud. And I stared up at that black ink cloud and from the bottom of it came spotlights, well what appeared to be spotlights, and then this old fashioned disk UFO came out from the bottom of that thing and began to approach me. I got hit by a blue-greenish spotlight, coiuld feel it going through me. As I was observing this thing, two young girls appeared on my left and they were screaming and hugging each other looking up at the same thing I was and one of them yelled at me “Little boy run home! The world might be ending!”

Jeremy Corbell

Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell was 13 years old when he heard a radio broadcast by news reporter George Knapp that would change his whole perception of life, the universe and everything. That broadcast related the story of a young scientist by the name of Bob Lazar who had done a local Las Vegas new TV news report with the same George Knapp in 1989 divulging information about a highly classified US Government project he’d been working on at a nearby secret facility at Papoose Lake in Nevada.

“It was pretty fascinating.” Jeremy reveals. “I was deep in to martial arts, doing jujitsu, at that time and I had never heard anything like Lazar described, the propulsion system you know. At the time I was under the impression propulsion is traditional force – you push something out the back, you move forward – so the concept of bending time/space and falling into a pocket somewhere in space was absolutely fascinating to me.”

“The whole reason we know about Area 51 and the S-4 facility is really because of Bob Lazar and that interview which continues to be broadcast around the world today on multiple formats. It is unbelievable the way that his story, whether people believe it or not, has influenced our popular culture.”

“There were were always rumours that Lazar was some Government agent of disinformation but by spreading that, if the plan was to get public eyes off of what was going on out at Area 51, what happened was the absolute opposite. It became sort of a UFO Disneyland as people came from all over the world to witness these advanced craft flying into space.”

Bob Lazar admitted in those interviews he knew the timetable of these ‘flight-tests’ so he would often take friends to a nearby ridge and watch the show, including the highly decorated former USAF pilot John Lear…

Linda Moulton Howe

If you’re familiar with the world of ufology then will undoubtedly know that the name belongs to one of the most tenacious and widely respected investigative reporters in the UFO community. Her work on the subject of animal mutilations spans nearly four decades and she has volumes and volumes of material, all meticulously researched, which has appeared in four books and in report form on her vitally important website earthfiles.com

Having successfully completed a Masters Degree in Communications at Stanford University in California in 1968, Linda started her career as a street reporter for KNBC LA. As her reputation increased she was given a producer role for a series of documentaries examining the environment, medicine and political issues in California. From there she moved to Denver, Colorado via Boston, Massachusetts. In Denver Linda was hired to produce documentary films, live studio programs and news segments for the CBS station on all matters affecting the state of Colorado. Linda picks up her story.

“In the summer of 1979 media headline’s started surfacing around the state of Colorado say something along the lines of ‘More Animal Mutilations’ – ‘Mutilations Again’. I had always lived on the East or West coast of the United States so I was not familiar with these stories and I immediately wanted to find out what was going on. So I began an investigation in September of 1979 that you could say has extended to this day.”

“It took nine months working 18 hours a day without a single break. Travelling with my television crew we were away for a month solid visiting ranchers, law enforcement and talking to other reporters.” explains Linda. The resulting footage was a 90 minute special called A Strange Harvest which was first broadcast on CBS on May 25th in 1980 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. around Colorado and the surrounding states. “We shot several thousands of feet of double system film and the highlight for me in many ways was right at the beginning with a sheriff, Tex Graves. He had been a sheriff in Logan County Colorado for 23 years and he had just retired when I went up to see him. He knew my work and when he laid out 266 colour Polaroids he had personally taken in his investigations of animal mutilations, for the very first time I began to understand why the phrase ‘bloodless’ had been repeated over and over in television radio and the newspapers. Polaroids are really not hoaxable and these 266 showed animals with the same patterns of excision.”

“There would be an ear removed at the skull, in a perfect circle about an inch and a half or two inches in diameter. Then there would be a perfect three to four inch diameter circle taken of the hide extending into the forehead. A perfect circle. The eyeball would be removed as well as the eye lids and then the lower jaw usually would be stripped of flesh down to clean bone. I reached out to veterinarians and pathologists and universities, anybody that I could get to help me investigate these cases.

A New Witness To Roswell?

 

In 2017 reports surfaced of a previously unknown witness to the Roswell crash. Author and researcher Philip Mantle investigated the claims with MUFON.

Released in 2017 the book UFOs TODAY – 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Ups by Irena Scott PhD contains an amount of controversial and thought provoking information as the title of the book might suggest. If I were a gambling man I would bet on one piece of information in this book being the most controversial within its pages. With it being the 70th anniversary of the Roswell Incident last year, an event that many claim was the crash of a space vehicle from an ET origin, the news that an alleged new witness emerging might not be that big a surprise.

THE ROSWELL FILE AND CHARLES H. FORGUS

In 2012 I was contacted by a gentleman called Scott Ferguson. Scott was part of a production company called White Tiger Films. He explained to me that he had some information on the Roswell Incident that he would like me to take a look at. I had first to sign a non-disclosure agreement which I did. Once this was signed I was sent what Scott called his ‘Roswell File’. He was looking to possibly make a movie based around this file and asked if I could help research the alleged witness. I of course agreed. The ‘Roswell File’ consisted of a transcript of an interview with the alleged witness Charles H. Forgus, a video interview with him and a photo as well. The story of how White Tiger Films obtained this material is I would say quite unique.

The Mojave Incident

It’s one of the most frightening alien abduction events of recent times yet few have heard of it. We spoke to Ron Felber, author of Mojave Incident.

When you think of alien abductees your mind immediately flashes the names Travis Walton, Betty & Barney Hill and Whitley Strieber, maybe even Samantha Mulder, sister of The X-Files’ Fox Mulder? You may also get the names Betty Andreasson or Antonio Villa-Boas if you’re particularly clued up. What you probably won’t think of are the names of Californian couple, Steve and Dawn Hess. Their experience and subsequent hypnotic regression is covered in a book, by crime author Ron Felber, called The Mojave Incident and it is a truly terrifying and, at times, mentally draining read. We spoke to Ron about the Hess’, their first meeting through a mutual friend and the hypnotic regression sessions where the truth of their experience was finally revealed. Before we get to Ron we’ll relate the incident itself that haunted the couple over the space of two years, pushing them to breaking point.

As Steve was pointing out various constellations Dawn drew
his attention to an even brighter object.

On the weekend of 20th and 21st October 1989 the young couple had scheduled a weekend trip to the Mojave foothills in Steve’s fathers truck, leaving their two small children in the care of his parents. The pair were looking forward to the trip and after a minor success on the slots at Whiskey Pete’s casino just inside the Nevada border, they were headed for the Midhills camping ground when inclement weather meant a night in the truck by the side of the road. By morning the fog and mist had cleared and they started on towards Midhills again. Situated between the New York and Providence Mountains, and 70 miles southwest of Las Vegas as the crow flies, the camping ground is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with dusty uneven roads leading to a perfect retreat away from the bustle of city life…

Ryan Sprague

It’s been quite the twelve months for screenwriter Ryan Sprague. His book Somewhere In The Skies: A Human Approach To The Alien Phenomenon is a very different beast to the usual UFO abduction books in that, as the title suggests, it focusses on the human aspects. What Ryan did is unique. Rather than stick to the tried and tested, and tired, clinical approach to the abduction phenomena he explored the emotional after-effects on the abductees with astounding and at times heartbreaking effect.

Not content with solely promoting the book though, he decided to launch his own complementary podcast radio show Somewhere In The Skies. Going from strength to strength and having clocked up a further 36 episodes since April at the time of writing, Ryan is primed to be one of the hottest new radio hosts in the alternative community.

SOYM: Let’s start with the book, what was the inspiration that compelled you to write ‘Somewhere In The Skies…’ from a human perspective?

Ryan Sprague: Endless books about UFOs have covered a UFO event, the time it happened, the place, and what the other proposes it may have been. I wanted to do something vastly different and actually contribute to progressing the UFO conversation. So I took a very personal approach. While I related UFO events, I focussed more on the individual having the experience. I wanted to know how the event was perceived by them, and how it affected their life in every way possible. Whatever is happening in our skies, it starts, and in my opinion, ultimately ends with the observer and experiencer. The human aspect of the UFO question should not be ignored, and can lead to some amazing discoveries. And perhaps equally as important; new questions being asked.
