Cosmic Ray’s ‘Venus Files’ – Part I

By Dr. Raymond A. Keller, author of the international awards-winning ‘Venus Rising’ book series, available on Amazon.com while supplies lastIn these coronavirus-plagued times, with even small gatherings being limited to no more than ten persons or completely curtailed, the usual forums available for me to answer pertinent questions that readers of my books have about the planet Venus and its inhabitants specifically, or the UFO phenomenon in general, have been closed off. Many thanks are extended to Lon Strickler of phantomsandmonsters.com for the opportunity of tackling some of these issues in this new column, which I will try and continue on at least a monthly basis. Should you wish to contact me for the purpose of sharing information about Venus, Venusians, flying saucers or other outer space phenomena, or asking questions about these same topics, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail to rkeller1@mix.wvu.edu, and I will try my best to find some answers for you and publish them here. Kecksburg “Meteor” and Project WHITE STORKMilitary personnel allegedly hauled off the bee-hive shaped UFO to Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. The UFO crash is frequently referred to as “Pennsylvania’s Roswell.” See https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTop5ssAt approximately 4:45 p.m. on 9 December 1965, a so-called “meteor” was observed streaking across the northeastern skies of the United States and the southeastern skies of Canada, descending at a steep angle, whence it crashed on the outskirts of the small town of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. The incident, and the town, which have come to be known collectively as “Pennsylvania’s Roswell,” has been the subject of ongoing speculation in the UFO community, even becoming a meme of pop culture. A movie about the incident, appropriately and simply titled Kecksburg, premiered at the State Theatre Center for the Arts on Main Street in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, on 12 September of last year. For additional information about the movie, directed by Pennsylvania native Cody Knotts, please see https://www.kecksburgufomovie.com/.Last summer, on 27 July, I enjoyed the privilege of attending the annual Kecksburg UFO Festival, being one of the many vendors of UFO-related products at the event, i.e. ‘Venus Rising’ books and bumper stickers. World Kecksburg UFO authority, Stan Gordon, provided an outstanding powerpoint presentation on what happened on the fateful day of the UFO crash at that location nearly 54 years ago. Other presenters discussed various aspects of ufology, in general. A fellow ufologist, S. W. from Michigan, and I, were examining many of the original drawings, photographs, testimonies in UFO reports and Pennsylvania newspaper articles about the incident that Stan Gordon had spread across his table.S. W. wanted to know what my take on the event was. I explained that there was a definite Venus connection to the Kecksburg UFO that needed further investigation.A few hours after the crash, Air Force personnel were dispatched to the debris site to cordon off the area and collect all they could of what remained of the UFO, then transporting it to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, for analysis by National Reconnaissance Office and Project BLUEBOOK personnel.Apart from the Air Force brass and President Lyndon Baines Johnson, nobody had any knowledge of what this object was or where it came from. Speculation was running wild. Astronomers speculated that it might be some kind of “bolide,” a meteor as bright as a full moon that impacts the Earth, causing a big explosion. Ufologists said it was a crashed alien spacecraft, and there were even rumors of several four to five-foot extraterrestrial occupants being reported as disembarking from the object and disappearing in the dense woods.What fascinated me about this case was the possible connection with one of the many Soviet Venus space probes. In December 2005, just before the 40th anniversary of the Kecksburg incident, a spokesperson for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released a statement reporting that experts had examined metallic fragments from the area and determined they were from a Soviet spy satellite that re-entered the atmosphere and broke up, but records of their findings were supposedly lost in the 1990s.For Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter for the Sci-Fi Channel, this was totally unsatisfactory. Therefore, he sued NASA under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the so-called “lost” NASA records. On 26 October 2007, NASA, being ordered by the court, agreed to search for those records. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t too long before Steve McConnell, NASA’s public liaison officer, testified that two boxes of papers from the time of the Kecksburg incident were missing. As with the original tapes of the Apollo 11 Moon mission, the Kecksburg files just “disappeared” from NASA’s prevue with no chain of custody for tracing their disposition.The Venus connection with the strange object that crashed in that rural area outside of the village of Kecksburg in Westmoreland County starts with an eyewitness’ account of the event. In the Wednesday, 9 September 1998 issue of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Post-Gazette, staff writer David Templeton reports that almost immediately after the UFO came down, “Local residents headed toward the landing site.” He added that, “James Romansky and others trailed the object into the woods by observing the arc-wielding flames and bluish sparklers evident through the trees after the landing.“The object was 12 feet long and six to seven feet in diameter, and shaped like an acorn. It had a ring around the base, just like an acorn, that bore what Romansky described as backward letters…. The craft had no doors or windows. The metal was seamless, with a dent, but bearing no rivets or welds.“The local men soon were chased away by United States military officials who announced that the landing site was off-limits to all civilians.”In 1993, James Oberg, a 22-year veteran NASA engineer and specialist in orbital mechanics, as well as an American space journalist and historian, regarded as the foremost expert on both the Chinese and Russian space programs, weighed in on the Kecksburg controversy and declared that it was his opinion that the object was part of the Soviet Venus probe known as Kosmos 96. While the United States Space Command reported that the Kosmos 96 crashed landed in Canada shortly after 3 a.m. on 9 December 1965, more than 12 hours before the Kecksburg crash, Oberg believes that the spacecraft broke up into two sections in orbit before falling down to Earth.As the author of ‘Final Countdown: Rockets to Venus’ (Terra Alta, West Virginia: Headline Books, 2017), I explore the vast array of space probes sent to Venus by the United States, Russia/former Soviet Union, Japan and the European Union. To my mind, Oberg is correct in his assessment because Kosmos 96 matches the Kecksburg object in many aspects. It was shaped like an acorn and possessed the ability to maneuver and land on Venus. As a Venus probe, it also was equipped with state-of-the-art heat shield technology so designed to survive a plummet through the electrically charged ionosphere of the second planet, estimated to be around 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. That could have allowed the craft to survive the long passage through Earth’s atmosphere before landing in Kecksburg. The writing on the spacecraft would have been the Russian Cyrillic alphabet; and all Venera probes from the former Soviet Union were fitted with plaques proclaiming the glories of their country and staking a territorial claim on Venus. After analyzing all the data, Oberg concluded that the fragments that came down in Canada were most likely the “jettisoned rocket stage of a large piece of space junk, while the probe itself could have headed off toward Kecksburg.” That explains why the United States military would lie, or at least not divulge everything it really knew about the Kecksburg crash.Back in the 1960s, the United States military intelligence agencies were interested in collecting as much of the Soviet military space debris as possible, dispatching operatives of the National Reconnaissance Office to all parts of the free and non-aligned countries to recover these downed objects, or what was left of them. Stanton Friedman, the famed nuclear physicist from the University of Chicago and prominent UFO investigator, was even dispatched on orders from the Central Intelligence Agency, to West Africa in 1962 to recover a downed Soviet satellite. While international law required that such debris be returned to the country of origin, we all know that this wasn’t going to happen until every bit of knowledge concerning the design and application of each recovered item had been determined. Therefore, in the midst of the Cold War, it was clear that hardware from the Kosmos 96, with all of its missile-warhead shielding, would have been much too valuable to return to the Soviet Union.Kosmos 96 Soviet Venus probeWhen it comes down to what crashed in Kecksburg, as far as the former Soviet authorities, and now Russian Space Agency spokespersons are concerned, they would only speculate that anything that crash-landed in American turf was probably American spy technology that the United States was too embarrassed to acknowledge.In May 1998, Stan Gordon interviewed Russian Cosmonaut Viktor P. Savinykh, who then served as rector of Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography. Gordon said, “I took the opportunity through an interpreter to ask him whether he could help solve the Kecksburg mystery. He, too, suggested rather emphatically, and with some laughter, that whatever plunged into Kecksburg surely was some faulty American technology.”But none of this takes into account one of the United States Air Force’s most top secret programs during the 1960s, Project WHITE STORK (United States Air Force Foreign Technology Division, Soviet Effort to Contact Extraterrestrial Life, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, USAF Historical Archives, 1967) whose very purpose was to monitor and report on the Soviet Union’s progress in searching for and establishing communications with extraterrestrial life. The majority of the space probes dispatched to other bodies in space by the former Soviet Union were targeted for Venus. In my second book in the ‘Venus Rising’ series, ‘Final Countdown: Rockets to Venus,’ a fuller extent of the WHITE STORK Venus revelations is presented.The Kosmos 96, officially designated 3MV-4 No. 6, was a space probe launched as part of the Soviet Venera program, supposedly intended to make a flyby of Venus. Allegedly, however, there was a launch failure that forced the spacecraft into a low Earth orbit. TASS, the Soviet News Agency, reported that the Kosmos 96 was launched on 22 November 1965 on a Molniya 8K78 rocket. In light of the WHITE STORK revelations, however, I wonder if the Kosmos 96 may have actually been sent up during a much earlier launch window, as part of the Soviet Union’s clandestine space program, whence it skimmed samples from the Venusian atmosphere pushed off as a long tail from the planet’s North Pole by the strong solar wind, to be followed by a return voyage to Earth. The actual samples could then be analyzed by experts from the Soviet Academy of Sciences to prove the existence of a suitable atmosphere for the later human exploration of Venus, and possibly the presence of primitive life forms, like microorganisms, on our sister planet.We must always keep in mind that as far as space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life, primitive or advanced, the official policy of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union has always reflected the Marxist-Leninist materialist philosophy that, “Life is a normal and inevitable consequence of the development of matter, and intelligence is a normal consequence of the existence of life.”Until next time, keep in mind the words of the Venusian Commander Aura Rhanes of the Moon Base Clarion, “Work, study, meditate.”(Note: Dr. Raymond A.

Diane’s work on the UFO puzzle began at the age of 4, when she was abducted twice by UFO beings in 1952 & 1953. She had a few conscious memories from those experiences; the most vivid was that her “guide” (head of abduction crew), said to her, “We are from your future.” After many decades, she now has reached a point of certain knowledge, that at least some UFO occupants are ‘Future Humans.’ In 1981, Diane underwent hypnotic regression with Dr. R. Leo Sprinkle, at the University of Wyoming, and remembered many details of her childhood encounter. Her recent book is titled ‘Future Humans and the UFOs: Time for New Thinking.’ Diane is also the founder and director of the Star Network Cat Sanctuary and Wildlife Refuge in her native Iowa.

Alabama Bigfoot: The ‘Lofa’ Legend

According to legend, the Lofa was an expected Bigfoot-like animal that resided in Northwest Alabama (consisting of locations of Mississippi and Tennessee). As soon as controlled by the Chickasaw people.The Wildcat ClanThis clan varies from other clans primarily in what its members consume, this is an area that was. They rarely head out in the daytime however wander about in the evening looking for food. They do not, nevertheless, attempt to steal.They are swift of foot and when a mishap occurs to them they depend upon their speed to leave. They care extremely little about females, however when they desire anything they usually get it. They believe more of their feet than of any other parts of their bodies and their eyes are so eager that they can see anybody prior to he discovers them.When among them desires a partner he gets his moms and dads to acquire one. They do not choose any type of female however take care in selecting. The more youthful constantly get a female. These normally oversleep the daytime. If they do not have best of luck in the evening their rest is disrupted however if they have all the best they sleep through the majority of the day.One day a variety of guys coming from this clan went searching and camped a significant range from house. Later they spread to see what they might discover however stayed within call of one another, having actually made a contract that if anything took place to among them he must scream for aid. One of them ventured further than he was mindful and got a long range off. Currently he burnt out and took a seat to rest, however while he existed a lofa (indicates ““ skinner. ” The being was believed to have long hair like an animal) showed up and stated: ““ What are you doing here? You are intruding upon my land and had much better get up and go back to your own location.”” But the Indian thought himself to be strong enough for any circumstance, so he sat still without speaking.Presently the lofa purchased him off once again and included, ““ If you do not get up and go away I will connect you up and bring you to my location.”“” “ You might do so if you can, ” the male responded, and upon this the lofa took him.At initially it appeared as if the guy were the more powerful of the 2 and he had the ability to toss the lofa down, however the latter smelled so bad that it was excessive for his villain, and the lofa conquered him, hung him up in a tree and went away.The male hung there all night, and when he did not make his look at camp the other hunters started a look for him and, when they discovered him, cut the grapevine by which he was secured so that he was up to the ground. They asked him what had actually treated him in this way however he would not speak and they believed he may have seen a ghost or something of that sort.Some time later on, nevertheless, he pertained to himself and associated what had actually occurred. Later on, believed he was really keen on searching and understood that he would achieve success, he would not venture out unless somebody were with him. – John R. Swanton —– When the inhabitants began to move into the locations formerly inhabited by the Chickasaw people, the sightings and experiences with the Lofa were passed along. There were very first hand accounts of close encounters with the monster. The papers, provided for the very first time, print and tape-record a few of these encounters.To the newbies, whatever that was not freely understood or blogged about by “the leading clinical leaders of the time” and the well informed, was dismissed as pure rubbish. Anybody who entered a town with a story about seeing a wild hairy male along the roadway was probably idea to be insane. Everybody “understands” there is no such animal out there like that.This is something that still continues today. This is why a lot of sightings and encounters with these animals still to this day, go unreported, not gone over, not discussed, and the story is undoubtedly not required to a paper editors that will include his/her own little remarks about anybody being available in with a story like this. If somebody does inform the story, it is to somebody they understand and rely on extremely well and that is as far as it goes.There was a time that some editors stayed open minded enough to the possibility that not whatever out there has actually been bagged and tagged and put in a box someplace. —– Gorilla Family Hunt remains in VainSheriff W. P. Cotton dismissed a posse of “wild male” hunters today and reported that a throughout the day look for an odd gorilla like household in a Choccolocca Valley overload remained in vain.Cotton led a group of farmers and residents into the overload after rural citizens reported seeing a kid, male and lady whose bodies were covered with hair and sometimes strolled on all fours. – UPI – 4/15/1936 —– Mera Roberts’ StoryMy brother or sisters and I matured hearing “Hairy Man” stories. My mom, Clara Odie Anderson Roberts, is nearly 90 years of ages and still has a sharp mind. She resides in the Jackson HealthCare Facility and can inform you these things herself.When she was young, a black male called Dan Scruggs lived near Uncle Tom Purvis’ ’ put on the opposite of Friendship, a neighborhood which was in between Coffeeville and the Witch Creek location. One day he left his home to go to a neighboring spring, taking his weapon with him. A brief time later on he got here back at his house, running and out of breath. He was really scared, and might just state, “Hairy Man, Hairy Man.” As he had neared the spring he saw a “Hairy Man” there and he left in such rush that he left his weapon there near the spring.One day, mom’’ s earliest sibling, Chamlers Anderson, and Elmore Bedwell, were going back to their house after having actually checked out the Roberts household who resided in the location. About midway in between the Roberts location and the Ida Bedwell location, they saw a “Hairy Man” resting on a log that was over a gorge. I think they lost no time getting to their particular houses. When mom was young, this likewise occurred. I’’ m questioning if other family members or descendants of individuals who in fact saw the “Hairy Man” may likewise have actually heard the stories passed and informed down in their households. My earliest sibling, Inez, keeps in mind Grandma Anderson (my Mother’’ s Mother) informing her something that took place when Grandma’’ s earliest kid( Chalmers) was an infant. Grandmother stated she was strolling to a relative’’ s home and bring Uncle Chalmers and she strolled up on a huge hairy ape resting on a log and holding its head with its hands. It simply got up and ambled off into the woods when Grandma strolled up. Grandmother stated she figured it must have left from a circus someplace which it might have been sick.Could this have been a “Hairy Man” or a Bigfoot? The child (my uncle) who was being brought was born Dec. 30, 1907 so Grandma’’ s experience with the” huge hairy ape “was most likely around 1908. All of these sightings happened in the Friendship location. – The South Alabamian – Jackson, AL – 12/23/2004NOTE: The following link might likewise be of interest – Addison, Alabama Near Brushy Creek and BFRO – Alabama Reports .
