  1. Wow! It is just amazing to see how many people, from different geographical areas, and who didn't seem to know each other, were drawn in, and fooled by this "hoax".

    I guess this young girl was, ummm, paid by one of the students involved to make up this story. And the doctor too...yeah, that's it!

    I dunno, it just doesn't seem possible. But hey, maybe I'm wrong.

  2. This is great so the MIT student just kept pulling this hoax day after day. Burning people and such...didn't they have any homework? Like I say Anthony B. I want a lie detector test of these hoaxers.
    What a joke.

  3. Very interesting Socorro-related story that I was previously unaware of. It reminds me of the Kecksburg Incident of Dec. 1965. Chief investigator Stan Gordon has reported a Pittsb urgh opthalmologist treated a child with severe corneal burns who had watched the UFO pass over on its way to Kecksburg, very similar to this Albuquerque case from a year before.

    The implication is the emission of some form of intense radiation that causes the burns. It has implications about the propulsion mechanism and/or power source.

  4. David,

    Interesting to note that the pictures taken by Patrolman Ted V. Jordan minutes after the craft took off were (reportedly) affected by radiation, this as told to Zamora by Hynek, then later to Ray Stanford (Also by Hynek [on camera]).

    Cheers,
    Frank

  5. Frank, other famous cases that come to mind where radiation levels were raised or where people seemed to have radiation-related effects from close encounters are the 1967 Stephen Michalak Falcon Lake Canadian case, Rendlesham 1980, and Cash-Landrum 1980 (though maybe our crude attempt at back-engineering).

    Ed Ruppelt devotes a chapter of his 1956 book, "The Report on UFOs" to spikes of radiation on instruments accompanying UFO activity around our atomic installations at Los Alamos and Oak Ridge around 1950.

    A very interesting 1886 case from Venezuela was recorded in Scientific American. A whole family seemed to suffer from radiation poisoning after a bright light lit up their house at night. This was over 40 years before anybody even knew anything about radiation poisoning.

    Its probably not healthy to get too close to these things when they are active.

  6. Remember that moment when Chapter 13, from the Fire Control/Rescue handbook was issued several years ago? It covered this.

  7. David, Bob, Et Al,

    I believe I have another account from the 1800's that "indicates" possible exposure to radiation during a UFO event.

    Separately. let us not forget the cases that emit a possible EM field affecting electronics, shutting down cars, missiles etc.

    Cheers,
    Frank
