- I would seem the San Luis and Wet Mountain
Valleys are quietly experiencing an upsurge in unusual activity during
the last week of August and the first week of September. The following
reports are being investigated by myself and investigator David Perkins.
- Around the 22nd or 23rd of August (there
is some confusion as to the exact date) a C-131 transport plane was seen
dropping a "huge box" just north of the Atlantic Richfield CO2
plant (located between Sheep and Little Sheep Mountains) in Huerfano County,
near the towns of Red Wing and Malacite, CO. Locals in the area witnessed
the "drop" and set off to investigate and search for the box.
Three separate reports of the following events have emerged. In one report,
locals witnessed two men with "jet-packs on their backs flying up
and down, around and between" Sheep and Little Sheep Mountain, apparently
looking for the box. Other witnesses claim they saw a craft, a short time
later, that had the appearance of a large clear bubble. From the bottom
of the bubble sparks were being emmited with a "clattering sound"
from square objects that were described as "magnets." A witness
(in true Colorado fashion) evidently fired a gun at at the strange- looking
object as it passed overhead and later that evening the man was confronted
and then accosted by three men. He told neighbors he was wrestled to the
ground and one of the men grabbed him and "snapped his neck"
and he immediately was rendered unconscious. Another report claims personnel
were seen searching ranches and barns north of Sheep Mountain later that
night, or early the following morning. DavidPerkins is still collecting
information and further witnesses descriptions of these events. A number
of locals witnessed this apparent search by these unknown craft and personnel.
- During this same time period, Mesita,
CO, residents just NE of the Colorado/ New Mexico border, have been witnessing
unusual lights/craft cruising up and down the South Pinon Hills near the
Rio Grande River, in the middle of the San Luis Valley. The first report
occurred the night of August 22, 1997 at about 8:30 pm. Three witnesses
watched two lights that one witness reported looking like" huge car
headlights" that were intermittingly visible to the west in a "large
thunderhead." Then they also watched a large golden colored light
that appeared low to the south by the border. Duration: about ten minutes
- One of these witnesses, Thomas Peay,
claimed to have then experienced three concurrent nights of lucid dreams
featuring "aliens" and being "taken out through the window
and aboard a small ship" which took him "up to a larger ship."
After the first night's dream, the witness claimed "he knew they were
comingback before he fell asleep."
- On Thursday, Sept 4, 1997, at 8:30 pm,
two Mesita, CO witnesses observed two large craft, each with a row of six
whiteish-orange lights, moving in unison. The craft, each estimated as
being "a little longer than a [C-131] transport plane," slowly
drfted south over the South Pinon Hills, then stopped around the border
and headed back north. After traveling north for about ten miles, they
slowly began drfting west across the SLV, between Antonito and Romeo, CO.
At no time did the objects travel faster than an estimated 40 mph. Duration
of sighting: about 40 minutes.
- On Friday, Sept 5, 1997 at 11:30 pm,
two witnesses in the Baca Grande Development (north of theCO/NM border
about 90 miles) claim to have watched a "huge craft hovering over
the center of the [San Luis] Valley." They described unblinking red
and green lights that seemed to be arrayed around the object. Later that
night on Sept 13, at 3:30 am, a witness was resting in his car on the side
of Road T, about a mile west of Crestone, when he was awakened by "a
roaring sound that sounded like an old train." At first the witness
thought it was a jet flying over, but the sound was steady and did not
diminish. He rolled down his driver side window and listened, and could
make out "clanking sounds, like a train" traveling on train tracks.
He rolled down his passenger window and could tell the sound was coming
from the southwest, out on the Baca Ranch. He got out and looked around,
but could see nothing he could attribute the sound to. There was no aerial
traffic present. Interestingly enough, I have received "phantom train"
reports from this general area where a train used to run in the early 1900's.
It ceased operation and the tracks were torn up in the early 1930's.
- I'm not sure what these seemingly unrelated
reports mean, but it would appear we are starting to see some activity
around here after over a year of very little activity in the San Luis Valley.
