ET, Phone Denver

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

It seems only yesterday that Barack Obama was sworn in as our 44th President.  Yet, the mid-term elections are upon us and, as we go to the polls to determine the composition of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate as well as members of state and local governing bodies, we are also asked to consider a number of public questions and ballot initiatives on issues ranging from property taxes to healthcare to abortion.  Among the most bizarre is a ballot initiative in Denver denoted as Initiative 300 to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission for collecting and sharing evidence that extraterrestrials are visiting Earth and for assessing the risks and benefits of making contact with those aliens.  Its primary proponent, Jeff Peckman, a practitioner and teacher of transcendental meditation and UFO writer for the Denver edition of Examiner.com, is the very same individual who – in 2008 – publicly displayed a video purporting to show an extraterrestrial caught on videotape by Stan Romanek outside his Nebraska home in 2003.  Verified as “authentic” by an instructor at the Colorado Film School, the video showed a moving image of the head of an alien as captured by Romanek peering through his kitchen window (see videos below).

Whether or not the video presented plausible evidence of Earth’s visitation by beings from other worlds or dimensions (you can be the judge), the more significant question is:  how might awareness of alien visitations of planet Earth alter our perceptions of ourselves and the destiny of humankind?

The visitation of planet Earth by extraterrestrials has long been a matter of speculation.  There are many who fervently believe that humankind’s development at various points in history has been both inspired and assisted by alien intelligence.  They point to architectural achievements like the construction of the pyramids in Egypt, prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge, and ancient images and writings arguably depicting alien spacecraft or encounters.  Others theorize that man has benefitted from an evolutionary perspective by virtue of ancient matings of extraterrestrials with Earth women.  Some point to the prediluvian Genesis account of the “Nephilim,” a race of supermen created “when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them” (Genesis 6:4) as evidence of inter-mating between human and extraterrestrial species.

Until now, the evidence in the public domain for Earthly visitation by extraterrestrials has been circumstantial and flimsy.  As technology has advanced and proliferated, however, opportunities to capture credible evidence of alien encounters with Earthlings have increased dramatically.  Whether the video presented by Jeff Peckman in support of his ballot initiative provided such evidence is a matter of conjecture.  But, it should be noted that the motives of both Peckman and Romanek are suspect, as both have attempted to profit from the video.  One also wonders about the nature and composition of the proposed Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission as well as how and to whom any public expenditures relating to the Commission and its functioning would be disbursed.

Nonetheless, if extraterrestrials do visit and roam our planet, I do not doubt that their days of passage incognito are numbered.  If they are truly here, someone somewhere will capture incontrovertible evidence of their presence.  By the way, if there are any extraterrestrial readers of this website (and, I have been told there are many), don’t phone home, phone Denver. 



I’ve Seen the Saucers!

On October 30, 1938, the evening before Halloween, Orson Welles broadcast an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic novella, “War of the Worlds,” as an episode of the American radio drama anthology series “Mercury Theater on the Air.”  The resultant hysteria, created among listeners who had either missed or ignored the program’s opening credits, brought the question of extraterrestrial visitation of earth squarely into the public consciousness.


Wells’ story begins in Grover’s Mill, New Jersey, a section of West Windsor Township.  More than 70 years later, extraterrestrial visitation is still a hot topic in New Jersey, this time in the Salem County community of Pittsgrove.  According to information available on the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) website, there have been three reports of unidentified craft over the area in the past month.


At 10:45 PM on Sunday, May 3rd, Joshua Beyer and his father John were walking along the street in front of their home.  Suddenly, to their west, they witnessed what was described as a “fire orange” ball of light in the sky that they estimated to be “approximately one-half mile” from them.  As they watched awestruck, the ball of light appeared to hover for “15 minutes” or more.


Ten days later on May 13th, witnesses again saw an “orange fireball” in the night sky.  This time, it was reported as a “disc” and “spinning.”  And, it was joined by four other objects of similar appearance.


On May 19th shortly before midnight, Joshua Beyers again spotted a “huge orange ball” in the sky.  He ran inside to call his mother, and on returning, they both witnessed a “huge triangle shaped craft” that was “spinning” and “hovering” above Green Branch Park.  Passers-by in a vehicle traversing the road, stopped to view the object.  Attempting to contact authorities, Joshua discovered that the home’s phone lines were dead and ditto his dad’s cell phone.  He returned to his vantage point in time to observe the triangle shaped object shoot “straight up in the air…like a bullet.”


The Pittsgrove reports are sandwiched by reports in April and June of this year of strange lights in the early morning and nighttime skies over the Woodstown and Turnersville areas in South Jersey.


What are these alleged “craft” and why would they target New Jersey?  No one knows for certain.  Yet, appearances of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO’s) over the New Jersey skies are not a new phenomenon.  On the night of March 23, 1950, Mrs. Lewis Prentiss of Rumson, New Jersey, on her way to pick up her husband at the Little Silver train station late one evening, witnessed three unusual objects in the sky that she described as “three port holes with lights behind them.”  That case, unresolved by the government investigation known as Project Blue Book, is among public records recently declassified.  And, in 1952, in the daylight skies above the North Jersey town of Passaic, was spotted the object whose image is published above this article.


Given the property tax situation in New Jersey, one wonders why ET would want to call the Garden State “home.”
