Mysterious UFO street signs appear in East Aurora

By Emily Guggenmos, News 4 Reporter
EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Some strange signs are popping up in East Aurora. Nobody seems to know where they came from. The signs depict UFOs “beaming up” livestock.
People have been spotting the signs since the beginning of the summer, but no one has caught whoever is hanging them. “I don’t know whose idea it is or maybe the aliens put them up, who knows,” said Bill Bernhardi. Alien signs have been popping up in the village, including one in front of Bernhardi’s home on Gypsy Lane. “I was looking out for crop circles. I was just checking to make sure the gravitational field around here is the same as everywhere else, but I’m keeping my eye open,” he joked.
Mayor Allan Kasprzak has his suspicions of who’s responsible and he doesn’t think it’s the work of aliens. “I believe it might be the East Aurora Food Cooperative that’s trying to get off the ground. That’s my hunch, but I’m not positive,” he said.
“We didn’t put up those signs to generate buzz, but we have put up other signs to generate buzz,” said East Aurora Cooperative Market Project Manager Shelia Convoy.
Maybe more important than who put them there, News 4 wanted to find out if the warning of UFOs abducting cows bore any merit. “I’ve never responded to an alien abduction of a cow, no,” said East Aurora Fire Chief Roger LeBlanc.
A local dairy farmer confirmed, “No, not where they disappeared into the air. They might try and escape occasionally,” said Gayle Thorpe with Thorpe Organic Family Farm.
As for now, the signs remain a mystery.
“It’s kind of funny because I’ve heard all kinds of theories. People were telling me about years past, people saw UFOs but I don’t think it’s going back that far,” said Mayor Kasprzak.
The mayor said technically it’s illegal for people to attach signs to road signs, although he doesn’t see the culprit facing any fines.

Former MEGADETH Drummer NICK MENZA Films UFO From His Front Yard (Video)


Former MEGADETH drummer Nick Menza has captured video footage of what he claims was an unidentified flying object (UFO) outside of his Studio City, California home on Monday, July 14. Check out the clip below.
Says Menza: "I was standing in my front yard with my two boys and this is what we saw. [It had] the shape of a triangular object with rounded tips glowing yellow and white. [I am] not sure what it is, but it looked totally awesome."
During a recent appearance on "Rock 'N' SeXXXy UnCensored", the Internet radio show hosted by adult film star Amber Lynn, Menza spoke about his forthcoming book, which is being written with J. Marshall Craig, best known for his critically acclaimed work as a writer for Eric Burdon's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", THE ROLLING STONES keyboardist Chuck Leavell's "Between Rock And A Home Place" and the West Coast hip-hop history "Guilty By Association". Menza said: "My book is about me and my life. It includes all kinds of stuff, from my childhood up until just as of recently. And I'm actually adding another chapter to it, probably, because it's taking so long to finalize everything — legal stuff, the cover artwork, the picture that's gonna be used… we're not really sure yet."
He continued: "I don't know what I can tell you about it. There's a lot of funny things in it. It's all true stuff. There's some government conspiracies and alien coverups and all kinds of stuff in there. Now that I'm into space exploration and research stuff — that's kind of what I'm into right now. I've always been into aliens and stuff like that. We are are the aliens and that's why we're here. All the evolution of everything is from alien technology.
"Before, back in the Stone Ages, like when we were just regular humans, we didn't have brains in us and then the aliens came down and they intervened and they put brains in our heads and now we're all smart and we're starting to figure things out, ascending to the next level and a higher level of conscious awareness and that sort of stuff."
Originally announced as "Megalife", Nick's book will now be titled "Menzalife". He explained: "It got changed just as of recently, because I can't use 'Megalife'; someone's already using that name and it's trademarked. No big deal. It's still the same content inside. It's gonna be for sale at the stores and stuff like that. A publisher is gonna put it out. I don't have a deal as of yet, but the book is really cool."
Menza's first performance was at the age of two on stage at the Montreux Jazz Festival when legendary jazz percussionist Jack DeJohnette (Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson) placed Nick on his kit. Thirty years later, he was stepping out on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans every night.
Menza, son of legendary jazz saxophonist Don Menza, was at the top of his game when MEGADETH started a world tour in support of its album, "Cryptic Writings", but began to suffer knee problems and escalating pain. Doctors diagnosed him with a tumor. Surgery waylaid the drummer briefly, but he was relieved to learn the tumor was benign and was eager to rejoin his bandmates, who had continued their tour with a replacement drummer. But deteriorating relations within the band exploded and Menza was replaced permanently.

Vancouver UFO's A Terrestrial Stunt

 By Josh Elliott,

Take off your tinfoil hats, Vancouverites.
A pair of unidentified flying objects spotted in the skies over British Columbia have been identified, and they're absolutely from this planet.
Social media lit up Sunday night, with video and photos of a pair of dodging, weaving ribbons of flame in the sky over English Bay in Vancouver. Some suggested they were UFOs, but a stunt airplane company has admitted to being the source of the unexplained lights.

The UFOs were actually stunt planes owned by Alberta-based Team Rocket Aerobatics. The planes were testing pyrotechnics attached to their wings ahead of the Abbotsford International Airshow next month.
"We didn't do anything wrong at all," Abbotsford International Airshow president Jim Reith told CTV News on Monday. "We obeyed all the rules and let all the right people know, so it was perfect."
Team Rocket's planes have firework-like streamers fitted under their wings that create the trails of flame many skywatchers saw.
But while the lights have been revealed to be man-made, the spectacle was still out of this world.

UFO Photographed by Miners in Chile

Published on 17 Jul 2014 By AlienPeace1 - There is GOOD out there

The Chilean government has just released pictures of an encounter which occurred in April of 2013. The pictures were sent to them for analysis by a group of miners who took the photos.
Excerpt from news article:
"The photos were taken at the Collahuasi copper mine, more than 14,000 feet above sea level in the Andean plateau in the far north of Chile. An extremely remote location with low oxygen levels and unusually clear skies, the area is desolate and inhospitable.

Four technicians - professionals specializing in electricity, electronics, and fluid control - were working there in April, 2013. They witnessed a disc-shaped object which approached slowly and was present for more than an hour, moving around in different positions and hovering at about 2000 feet. One technician took pictures with his Kenox Samsung S860 camera. The strange object made no sound, and eventually moved away towards the East."

Contact in the Desert convention set for Aug. 8 in Joshua Tree


Southern California’s Morongo Basin has long been a hotbed for UFO activity, whether real or imagined.
Ever since George Van Tassel, a former flight inspector-turned-ufologist, leased an abandoned airstrip adjacent a seven-story boulder in Landers in 1947, built an inn and began hosting interplanetary conventions, the area has since been a global draw for those who believe, or want to believe.
“As many as 15,000 people showed up for these conventions in the middle of the desert. They would come by plane, automobile, campers, and they would listen to these speakers,” said Barbara Harris, a member of the Morongo Basin Historical Society and expert on the history of Giant Rock, the landmark seven-story boulder where Van Tassell set up shop in 1947.

Van Tassel’s guest speakers claimed to have either been abducted by extraterrestrials or had direct contact with them. They included Daniel Fry, George Adamski, Gabriel Green and Dr. Frank Stranges, founder the of National Investigations Committee on Unidentified Flying Objects, Harris said.
“They were called the ‘contactees’ at the time,” Harris said. “They talked about their experiences. They talked about the government cover­-ups. They talked about the X­-files.”
Van Tassel himself claimed to have been abducted by aliens. In 1959, he completed construction of his Integratron, a resonant tabernacle he claimed was designed with blueprints personally delivered to him by four aliens who landed at his airport in Landers in 1953 in a spaceship from another planet. Howard Hughes helped fund construction of the project, now a national tourist draw.
In the spirit of the Morongo Basin’s rich UFO history, the Joshua Tree Retreat Center will host the second annual Contact in the Desert, a three-day weekend convention featuring some of the world’s most reputed ufologists and alleged contactees, from Aug. 8-11. Registration is underway, and bookings for this year’s event have more than doubled, said Paul Andrews, an event organizer.
He believes the event’s popularity can be attributed mainly to the popularity of television shows like the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” and radio talk shows like the paranormal-theme “Coast to Coast.” The hosts of both shows, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and George Noory, respectively, are among the featured guest speakers at this year’s event.
“The whole UFO question is a huge mystery to the American public . . . , and people want to solve that mystery. They need to know,” Andrews said.
Unlike UFO conventions that tend to draw the proverbial fanatics in foil hats, Contact in the Desert prides itself on taking itself seriously and assembling a pool of leading experts in the field, which can also be attributed to the event’s rising popularity, Andrews said.
Also on this year’s roster of guest speakers include Erich von Daniken, author of the 1969 book “Chariots of the Gods”; Nick Pope, a former official with the UK Ministry of Defense UFO Project; David Wilcock, host of Gaiam TV and author of “The Source Field Investigations”; and Travis Walton, an alleged abductee whose book, “Fire in the Sky,” was made into a feature film.
Andrews said the region’s long history of reported UFO sightings makes it the perfect spot to host such an event.
“What better place to convene a conference exploring some of the greatest questions in human history than an ancient sacred site (Giant Rock) with a long-lived reputation for sightings and contact experiences?” Andrews asked in a news release.
Harris, a Yucca Valley resident of 10 years and former president of the Morongo Basin Historical Society, will give a lecture on the history of Giant Rock and a tour of the site.

She said the Morongo Basin is near the 33rd Parallel North, where many of the world’s UFO sightings have occurred.
Since Van Tassel put down roots in Landers, his legacy has lived on, as have the reported sightings of UFOs.
“Almost all the old timers have seen some kind of mystery craft some time in their lives up there,” Andrews said, adding that the 17-mile loop in Joshua Tree National Park is a popular place for people to gather, to pitch tents or sit in the back of their pickups, sipping beer and searching the sky for unidentified flying objects.

George Noory, host of the radio talk show “Coast to Coast” and who succeeded Art Bell, will be opening up this year’s event via Skype on Aug. 8 and then speaking in person in panel discussions on Aug. 9. He said Joshua Tree serves as the perfect locale for the event, which coincides with the Perseid meteor showers.
For the nonbelievers and skeptics who often scoff at the idea of little green men with almond-shaped eyes traversing the solar system, visiting Earth and abducting or examining humans as some sort of intergalactic scientific research project, Noory said such skepticism is actually a good thing.
“I think skepticism is healthy. If you can go in with an open mind, not believing everything you hear, that is much better than a blind believer,” Noory said.
Noory, however, is no skeptic.
“Life is just too complicated to be randomly done without some intelligent force behind it,” Noory said, adding that some call that intelligent force the work of God, while some believe it is the work of alien life forms visiting Earth in vehicles that far surpass the technologies of modern man.
“There is something that put this altogether, and they did it very well,” Noory said.

Buzz Aldrin Opens Up About 'UFO' Encounter, Mars Colony Hopes

Even 45 years later, Buzz Aldrin has detailed memories of the Apollo 11 mission, when he became the second man to set foot on the moon.
The ex-astronaut, who is speaking out this month ahead of the 45th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing, discussed the mission, his "UFO" encounter, and more in a Reddit AMA on Tuesday.

Dishing about the moment he saw an "unidentified" object floating outside his Apollo capsule, Aldrin wrote:
On Apollo 11 en route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world -- it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And I feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don't know. So technically, the definition could be "unidentified."
Aldrin first recounted his UFO anecdote during a Science Channel program in 2005. At the time, UFO enthusiasts were apparently upset that Aldrin had not shared the information sooner.

During his Reddit AMA, Aldrin also took time to proclaim his hope that humans will travel to Mars in the near future.
"There is very little doubt, in my mind, that ... the next monumental achievement of humanity will be the first landing by an Earthling, a human being, on the planet Mars," Aldrin wrote, adding that he expects an international team to establish a presence on the red planet.
Aldrin added that a "collection of the best" individuals from around the world should land on Mars and establish a permanent settlement, rather than representatives of a private company with an eye on space tourism -- such as Elon Musk's SpaceX.
Wrote Aldrin:
I have considered whether a landing on Mars could be done by the private sector. It conflicts with my very strong idea, concept, conviction, that the first human beings to land on Mars should not come back to Earth. They should be the beginning of a build-up of a colony / settlement, I call it a "permanence." A settlement you can visit once or twice, come back, and then decide you want to settle. Same with a colony. But you want it to be permanent from the get-go, from the very first.
Should NASA send astronauts back to the moon? Aldrin said that's probably not the best use of resources. Instead, he said, the U.S. should direct its focus further into space and establish colonies and labs on Mars.

Do Indian Cave Paintings Show Prehistoric Alien Abductions?

By Paul Seaburn

It’s a story made for a Bollywood sci-fi musical starring Will Smith as an dancing alien fighter. An archeologist in India claims that 10,000-year-old cave paintings are depictions of UFO landings, alien visits and possible prehistoric alien abductions and has asked NASA and ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) for research assistance.
The paintings are in caves near the town of Charama in Chhattisgarh, a state in central India known for its cave artworks. Most of them are the usual drawings of humans, animals and everyday life in 8,000 BCE. Some of the animals are odd – kangaroos and giraffes not native to India and fish that are part human, or vice versa.
According to the Times of India, archaeologist JR Bhagat recently found new paintings of even stranger creatures. Here’s his description:
The paintings are done in natural colors that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits.
Some of the figures are wearing what look like helmets and have things sticking from their heads that could be antennae. Near them is a disc-shaped object on what appears to be three legs that could depict a spacecraft.

Indian cave art showing beings with what appear to be helmets and antennae.
According to Bhagat, locals tell stories of “rohela people” or “the small ones” who would descend from the sky in a roundish flying vehicle and abduct a couple of villagers who were never seen again.
Bhagat’s fellow archeologists disagree with his speculations, pointing out that many caves have similar images that are most likely traditional shamanic images of figures with antlers on their heads or spirit rays shooting from them.
Bhagat is patiently waiting for a visit from NASA. This sounds like the perfect job for Buzz Aldrin.

Tourists Enter Area 51, Surrounded by Armed Military Officers

By Paul Seaburn
Is Area 51 the Hotel California of secret U.S. military bases where visitors – even accidental ones – can check out but never leave? That’s what riders on an Area 51 tour bus that normally just creeps right up to the fence feared when their vehicle was surrounded by armed military officers who informed them that they were inside the base and in big trouble.
Area 51 is, of course, the military base north of Las Vegas known for its secret aircraft testing and rumored UFO storage. According to a report by KLAS TV in Las Vegas, the poor tourists were on a bus operated by Adventure Photo Tours, one of the many companies offering tours of the outer perimeter of Area 51 with stops at the Extraterrestrial Highway sign, the Little A’le’inn, the alien and UFO gift shop and the gate. Apparently driver Denis Ryan got distracted and he and his four passengers innocently passed the signs warning of the possibility of deadly force.

The officers detained the bus until local deputies from Lincoln County, Nevada, arrived to cite everyone for trespassing, a misdemeanor with a possible $650 fine. Fortunately for them, the tour company had a secret camera – actually, two of them, one outside on the hood facing forward and one inside recording the driver and passengers.

They were shown to the county District Attorney Dan Hogue who agreed that the out-of-state tourists were innocent. Unfortunately, driver Denis Ryan was fined and will not be able to drive an Area 51 tour bus for two years. The company was let off the hook after agreeing not to release video from the forward cameras showing the military officers in a white truck.
The tourists are safely back at home and have no abduction stories to tell. Well, none that they can remember.

John Denver, Roswell, And Dead Aliens

By Nick Redfern
Born into an Air Force family in the town of Roswell, New Mexico in 1943, Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. gained worldwide fame as singer-guitarist John Denver, who is perhaps best known for his hits Take Me Home, Country Roads; Rocky Mountain High; Thank God, I’m a Country Boy; and Leaving on a Jet Plane, the latter having been recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary and which reached number one on the charts.
As Denver’s popularity grew in the 1970s, so did his passion for politics, and pressing social and humanitarian issues. It was this passion that led the world of officialdom to take note of the man’s activities, as a May 22, 1975 document generated as a result of inter-agency interest in Denver makes abundantly clear.
According to the document, a “Dump the War Rally” took place at the Metropolitan Sports Arena, Bloomington, Minnesota, on May 23, 1971. Among those listed as speakers was Denver, along with Congressman Paul McCloskey, Former U.S. Congressman Allard Lowenstein, former U.S. Senator Eugene J. McCarthy, U.S. Congressman Donald Reigel, and former Navy Lieutenant (and, later, presidential candidate) John Kerry.

An article had appeared in the May 3, 1971, issue of the Minneapolis Star newspaper, quoting the rally sponsors denying that “the antiwar rally is part of a ‘dump Nixon movement.’”
Nevertheless, government files reveal that: “Wheelock Whitney, a Republican leader, would not endorse this rally because he considers it a ‘dump Nixon effort.’”
Official papers further noted that a spokesman for the Bipartisan Caucus to End the War had said: “We’re not waiting for November 1972,” and that the same spokesman had informed the Minneapolis Star that it wanted to “persuade the political animal who holds the presidency to change his course of action before the election.”
In this case, officialdom took no action, beyond filing the data for potential future reference, and the Denver File (which ultimately ran to 33-pages) seems to have remained largely inactive until December 1979, when the FBI reported that threats had been made to kill the singer:
“Approximately seventeen threatening phone calls directed at singer John Denver has been received in Los Angeles since December 1, 1979. A female, speaking German and English has called daily from Germany demanding first to speak to Denver and then stating that her mother’s boyfriend is coming to Los Angeles to kill Denver. John Denver, who is presently at his home in Aspen, Colorado, is aware of the threats.”
Aside from politics and humanitarian issues, Denver’s other big passion was outer space. He even took, and notably passed, NASA’s physical and mental examination to determine if he was fit enough to cope with the extreme rigors of a journey into space. As a result, he almost made it onto the Challenger Space Shuttle.

That Denver was ultimately not selected, prevented him from joining the ill-fated January 1986 mission that ended in utter disaster when Challenger exploded shortly after take-off, killing the crew. This event led to an FBI investigation of the accident that ran to 170 pages.
There is a genuinely weird saga in the life and career of John Denver that touches upon official secrecy and that deserves to be mentioned. One of those aboard the tragic Challenger Space Shuttle flight that Denver almost got to travel on was astronaut Ellison Onizuka. He had told his close friend Chris Coffey that, while serving in the Air Force at McClelland Air Force Base in 1973, he – Onizuka – had viewed a piece of black-and-white film footage that showed alien bodies on slabs.
They were alien bodies not unlike those supposedly recovered from a crashed UFO by the military in 1947 at Roswell, New Mexico. Roswell, as I noted at the beginning of this article, was John Denver’s hometown. A curious set of coincidences, to say the least.
John Denver died on October 12, 1997, when his private plane plunged into the ocean near Pacific Grove, California.
