- In 1972 I had three close encounters with a flying saucer,
with multiple witnesses including family members. The first sighting was
only a few miles from Andrews Air Force Base in Camp Springs, Maryland,
right in front of our house. At first I was totally convinced that these
craft were not manmade. But over the years I have since uncovered evidence
that they could very well have been manmade. Publicly acknowledged technology
is usually at least 40 years behind reality, as we all know. I made detailed
notes of our sightings, and what follows is an excerpt from the first one:
- "At about 500 yards away, when the object tilted
towards us and we could see the small red light on top, it was then clear
to me that it was a round flattened (8-10 feet thick) disk shaped object
and the small red light was directly in the center of the top. When it
tilted away from us, the same was obvious and there was a small green light
in the center of the bottom. The object was about 40-50 feet in diameter...The
whole time it never made a sound, never emitted any type of exhaust and
moved effortlessly through the sky."
- My research into the aerial dynamics of the saucer led
me to physicist Bob Lazar (of S4 Papoose Lake fame). Both Lazar and Paul
R. Hill, the former NASA scientist, have described saucer dynamics for
take off and landing in a similar fashion. Lazar speaks of three gravity
amplifiers in the crafts he observed and worked on. One amplifier would
be used to lift the craft off the ground, then the other two gravity generators
are swung up in front of the craft creating a distortion. Essentially a
downhill. And the craft "rolls" downhill for infinity. It's always
chasing a little distortion. As Lazar puts it, "That's why they look
goofy when they fly around at low speeds." The saucers he witnessed
would tilt "forwards and backwards". One of Hill's suggested
methods of saucer propulsion is a plasma field in the shape of a cone directly
below the saucer. The craft would tilt "forward" to start and
"backward" to stop. But then neither of these descriptions could
explain in my mind the apparent flight characteristics of the saucer in
my initial close encounter. If you will read the above excerpt again, you
will see that as the craft came within a few hundred feet from the ground,
it did not tilt "forward nor backward" as described by Lazar
and Hill. Instead it tilted towards us and then away from us all the while
continuing to descend. Here is another excerpt from my notes:
- "The closest approach this object made was about
200 yards away. Close enough to see details...including the color which
was dark metallic gray. At this distance it had stopped descending and
hovered just above the tree line over a clearing in which my friends and
I like to camp back there in the forest. It continued the same rotation
however. It hovered for about 1 minute, permanently inscribing these details
on my conscious memory. Then it descended into the clearing and I assume
it landed. After I went inside the house I continued to watch out my 2nd
floor window to see if it ever took off, but it never showed itself again.
Not that night at least."
- In further research I came across some relevant information
related to saucer dynamics and my sightings. This is from John Lear, a
one-time pilot for the CIA. In one speech to a Dallas UFO meeting in 1988,
he made the following statement with regards to how UFOs enter and leave
their bases on Earth:
- "They enter and exit their underground bases through
interdimensional transference, a hyperspace maneuver which accounts for
the apparently nonsensical stories of UFO witnesses who report having seen
UFOs going in or out of mountains."
- Lear's claims may be disinformation, but the themes cross-check
with an enormous number of other reports. I got to thinking that there
just may be an underground base in the immediate area where I had the initial
sighting and that the interdimensional "doorway" could very well
have been right under where the craft was hovering, in the woods right
in front of our own home! And then something just clicked for me. I recalled
something else Bob Lazar said about the unusual movements of these saucer
craft. He stated that "...the gravity field around the Earth is not
completely constant and stable. Depending on the minerals and the density
of the Earth underneath the craft, the gravity will vary somewhat and you
will get odd movements of the craft." That was it! An underground
base would in essence be a hollow chamber just below the "entrance
way" and the craft we observed may have been compensating for the
unstable gravity field with its own gravity field amplifiers. Maybe it
was an unlocking mechanism. (There's no way to really know until I get
to test fly one of these babies.)
- Then I started putting more pieces of the puzzle together.
In another sighting in that same year, a few weeks after the initial sighting,
my friend and I both witnessed the same saucer (or its clone) hovering
over the same trees in front of my house and then descend into the same
clearing in the woods again. This time it was in the daytime and we were
in front of my friend's house which was three miles northwest of my house.
Another excerpt from my notes:
- " We both ran towards my house, cutting through
yards, jumping over fences, and when we reached the edge of the forest
we lost sight of the object as it descended into the clearing. We continued
running through the forest until we came to the clearing I mentioned earlier.
There was nothing. No object, no beings, no indents in the soil, no footprints,
nothing. We wandered around for a while and finally gave up the chase
and went home to change our clothes."
- Twice I had seen a saucer hover over and then descend
into the same clearing in the woods, with multiple witnesses. And twice,
we never saw the object ascend. It just disappeared. Of course it may have
been utilizing cloaking technology, but then the clearing is only about
100 feet in circumference. We walked all over the clearing and didn't "bump"
into any invisible objects. It could very well have gone underground.
- When my wife and I moved to Virginia in 1996, we paid
a visit to the old neighborhood in Camp Springs and I stood in the same
spot in my neighbor's yard and pointed in the direction of the first close
encounter. After getting my bearings, we walked straight into the woods
to look for the clearing where I believed the saucer may have "landed".
The clearing was still there and we walked around the area, mostly for
my own nostalgic purposes. But then we both got the feeling that someone
was watching us. We would keep turning around thinking someone was there,
and even thought we saw some figures in our peripheral vision hiding behind
some trees nearby but would never reappear. There was a very eerie feeling
that I at first thought was merely the suggestion of what had happened
that night so many years ago. But we both felt it and didn't feel like
sticking around. We left the area and went back to the car.
- I am fairly convinced that these craft we witnessed used
interdimensional transference which simply means changing frequency upwards
into the 4th or 5th dimension so that the saucers can traverse the earth
and rock and re-materialize in our 3rd dimension in an underground base
right under our home where we lived for 10 years. Right outside our Nation's
Capital! It's highly unlikely that our Government doesn't know about this
base, and therefore the saucers could very well be manmade.
- As a matter of fact, the first saucer didn't even try
to hide or cloak itself. It descended quite slowly and we observed it from
about at altitude of 5,000 feet down to just over the trees which were
about 40 feet high. No planes were scrambled from Andrews on that night
to investigate nor during the daytime sighting. How could our radar system
have missed it? There were no stealth-like designs and should have given
a strong return. Another excerpt:
- "There were about 7-8 stars close together in a
straight row and then I noticed they were slowly descending, together,
connected somehow. I forgot my conversation with my friend and continued
watching these "stars". They continued descending and getting
closer to us. One "star" would disappear from the front and one
"star" would appear from behind as they descended, giving the
impression (to me) that this was an object with some type of illumination
on the outer edge and that it was turning.
- This object continued to descend, at about a 40 degree
angle from west to east, slowly and at a steady rate (never speeding up
or slowing down), until it was about a half mile away over the forest that
started just behind the houses across the street. At this point the "stars"
were obviously some sort of lights about 4-5 feet around, each, and part
of a singular object of about 40-50 feet around. As the object rotated,
a blank space could be seen between two of the lights with a slight outline
of what I took to be a door, but it could have been anything, and a small
green light in the center or the 'door'."
- "At its closest approach it was about 200 yards
away and stopped over the tree line and just hovered while still rotating
at the same speed throughout the sighting. It made no sideways motion
as a helicopter sometimes does while hovering. It just effortlessly hovered.
The whole time it never made a sound, never emitted any type of exhaust
and moved effortlessly through the sky. After about 1 minute of hovering
(over a clearing that I was familiar with in the forest) it descended below
the tree line and I guess, landed. I only assume that since it was lost
- The failure to scramble jets or helicopters to investigate
this intrusion into the immediate airspace surrounding a nuclear Air Force
base, which is also the base where the President takes off and lands in
Air Force One, hints at prior knowledge of these craft by the military.
- Supplemental Information
- While pondering the flight characteristics of the saucers
my friends and I witnessed, I have recently come across information that
may help to confirm my suspicions that there is (or was) an underground
base for these saucers right outside of Andrews Air Force Base.
- Many of the underground bases are adjacent to large underground
cavities, many of which are known by both the public and the military forces.
All large underground cavities affect the gravitational field strength
in that area, and they all can be located through an examination of a Gravity
Field Anomaly map obtained through the U.S. Geological Survey. The average
field strength is about -100 to -150. The field strength over these large
cavities seems to vary from -250 to -400. Relate these areas to the area
of our saucer sighting in front of our house, and Voila!
- Once I have the maps in hand, I'll send you an update.
