Summary: This page is based on my personal cross-study of many UFO-related entity incident reports from different countries. Of the tens of photographs purporting to show "aliens", only the F. Caponi, Italy 1993 and J. Templeton, Solway Firth UK 1964 ones are in my opinion probably authentic.
In this page I offer and explore the idea that the Caponi Italy 1993 and Varginha Brazil 1996 beings are the same species, are amphibians and consider possible links with water-dwelling entities in ancient literature (e.g. Oannes in Babyloniaca by Berossus) and folklore (e.g. Japan's Kappas, Africa's Dogon Nommos and folk beliefs of Australia's Warlpiri aboriginals), but also with the modern Latin America's "Chupacabras" and the more sinister "animal excision and exsanguination" phenomenon.
Abduction link with cases like the "Encounter at Buff Ledge" 1968.
The idea of water-dwelling beings also ties nicely into the link between UFOs and bodies of water, like lakes & rivers (covered in other pages of this website). And their nocturnal habits tie into the nocturnal character of UFOs.
Probably the most intriguing, puzzling, perplexing aspect of UFOnaut sighting reports is that virtually all are described as humanoid or, in some cases, human-like. Their behavior is usually described as elusive and evasive.
Contrary to the popular belief that sightings of UFO-related beings are extremely rare, researchers from MUFON's Humanoid Study Group (HSG) have compiled a long list of such cases - over 1600 different entity incidents. In the words of HSG co-chairman, physicist David Webb: "Many of the reports are well-documented, firsthand investigations involving credible witnesses."
An example of a CE3 case with "human" UFO-occupants observed by tens of witnesses, was reported by Reverend William Gill (1928-2007), while stationed in Papua New Guinea in 1959 (case details: theOZfiles / theOZfiles2, ufologie, nicap). Father Gill prepared a written report of the sighting and 25 witnesses co-signed it, including teachers and medical technicians. In the documents of the case Gill clearly states of the figures on the craft, "no doubt they are human". When Cruttwell probed for details, Gill indicated that the parts he could see "had the outlines of normal human beings". Watch father Gill's 1975 interview describing the event (duration 3.5min):
Dr. J. Allen Hynek (astronomy professor, who served for 21 years as the scientific consultant to USAF's UFO project), personally traveled to the Pacific island where the incident occurred and interviewed many of the 25 witnesses who co-signed father Gill's report; CUFOS' lead investigator astronomer Allan Hendry also interviewed 6 of the witnesses (audio-tapes available in CUFOS library).
For the purpose of this document, I have divided reports of UFO-related entities into 4 broad classes, based solely on how the aliens looked to the human observer, i.e., their phenotype:
There are alleged contactees and abductees (e.g. Travis Walton) who have reported seeing these "aliens" operating together with other alien types. British Air Marshal Sir Peter Horsley (1921 - 2001), who once ran Britain's front line defence at RAF Strike Command and was a Buckingham Palace aide for six years, in his autobiography "Sounds From Another Room (1997)" talks about his conversation with a human-looking "alien" called "Mr Janus" in 1954 in a London flat. The meeting was set up by a retired General, who told him the "aliens" wanted to warn us of the perils of nuclear war.
EBE Type I: These entities are humanoid and might be mistaken for human beings of the Oriental race if seen from a distance. They are bipedal, 3-5 feet 4 inches in height and weigh 50-100 pounds. Proportionally they are similar to humans, although the cranium is somewhat larger and more rounded. The skin is a pale, chalky-yellow in color, thick, and slightly pebbled in appearance. The eyes are small, wide-set, almond-shaped, with brownish-black irises with very large pupils. The whites of the eyes are not like that of humans, but have a pale gray cast. The ears are small and set low on the skull. The nose is thin and long, and the mouth is wider than in humans, and nearly lipless. There is no apparent facial hair and very little body hair, that being very fine and confined to the underarm and the groin area. The body is thin and without apparent body fat, but the muscles are well-developed. The hands are small, with four long digits but no opposite thumb. the outside digit is jointed in a manner as to be nearly opposable, and there is no webbing between the fingers as in humans. The legs are slightly but noticeably bowed, and the feet are somewhat splayed and proportionally large.Note: Confusion whether they are different from popularly known "Greys" (B.2 / EBE-Type-II).
EBE Type II: These entities are humanoid but differ from Type I in many respects. They are bi-pedal, 3 feet 5 inches - 4 feet 2 inches in height and weigh 25-50 pounds. Proportionally, the head is much larger than humans or Type I EBEs, the cranium being much larger and elongated. The eyes are very large, slanted, and nearly wrap around the side of the skull. They are black with no whites showing. There is no noticeable brow ridge, and the skull has a slight peak that runs over the crown. The nose consists of two small slits which sit high above the slit-like mouth. There are no external ears. The skin is a pale bluish-gray color, being somewhat darker on the back of the creature, and is very smooth and fine-celled. There is no hair on either the face of the body, and these creatures do not appear to be mammalian. The arms are long in proportion to the legs, and the hands have three long, tapering fingers and a thumb which is nearly as long as the fingers. The second finger is thicker than the others, but not as long as the index finger. The feet are small and narrow, and four toes are joined together with a membrane.
Online resources of UFO-occupant sightings (a/k/a CE3 = Close Encounters of 3rd Kind) include:
Many types of alien beings have been described in UFO reports and classified in taxonomic studies in books by:
Examples of stories of human-looking UFO aviators: UFO occupants seen near hospital, Canada 1970 (notice the "head encased in close-fitting dark material" comment by the nurse), then look at the Templeton, Solway Firth "spaceman" photo, England 1964. More similar cases include UFO with two occupants seen by Dorset UK woman, Sep-1977, Alien pan-cakes? Wisconsin, USA 1961.
More recently, tens of african schoolchildren see landed UFO and occupant Sep-1994 (interviewed by the late John Mack, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Med.School):
Two recent cases of CE3 with "reptilian"-like (amphibian?) entities are the
FWIW, Robert O. Dean (who has made some rather extravagant claims on occasion), retired US Army Master Sergeant, tells the story of a 3yr investigation of UFOs/ETs by NATO/SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) between 1961-1964, resulting in a "COSMIC TOP SECRET"-classified Report "Assessment: An Evaluation of a Possible Military Threat to Allied Forces in Europe", which stated that:
"the planet Earth and human race had been the subject of a detailed survey of some kind by several different extra-terrestrial civilizations, four of which they had identified visually. One race looked almost indistinguishable from us (also referred to as "Nordics", because they resemble northern Europeans, blonde hair, blue eyes etc). Another resembled humans in height, stature, and structure, but with a very gray, pasty skin tone. The third race is now popularly known as the greys (see EBE-Type-II below), and the fourth was described as reptilian, with vertical pupils and lizard-like skin (see EBE-Type-I below)" more
If UFOnauts are indeed basically human or humanoid as so many report, then this raises all sorts of questions about the type of link between us and them: a common biological origin with homo sapiens is a significant possibility.
Speculations to explain human-looking UFOnauts, include:
"I think that we're going to find out, that we're not the first humanity that has been on the planet anyway, there have been quite a number of others that have come out of stack or have been wiped out. Secondly that Man is not just the product of chance, of the workings of evolution, he's that plus something else. In other words we're the result of some very superior engineering, by someone, somewhere [...]Video extract (9min):
A lot of these speculations are citing ancient mythology of various countries (Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, Indian, African, South American etc).
The alternative would be parallel convergent evolution given similar environments on other planets, produced humanoid (body, 2 arms, 2 legs, a head with 2 eyes and mouth) entities, as some scientists suggest:
"E.T. May Look Just Like Us."
"Forget all those fanciful Hollywood notions about the bizarre appearance of extra-terrestrial beings. E.T., if he or she exists, actually may look much like an ordinary human being. That is the conclusion of an international authority on the origins of life who has reported the first scientific evidence that life may be fundamentally similar throughout the universe.
'When we do land on a planet some where some day, don't be surprised if somebody walks up to shake your hand.' Dr. Cyril Ponnamperuma said."
Quote from Blade Tribune Newspaper, September 17, 1986
Ponnamperuma (bio) was director of the University of Maryland's Laboratory of Chemical Evolution. The lab has pioneered research on how life might have originated from spontaneous chemical reactions among chemicals that existed on earth billions of years ago.
Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe and colleagues at the University's Centre for Astrobiology have long argued the case for panspermia - the theory that life began inside comets and then spread to habitable planets across the galaxy.
The Cardiff team suggests that radioactive elements can keep water in liquid form in comet interiors for millions of years, making them potentially ideal "incubators" for early life. They also point out that the billions of comets in our solar system and across the galaxy contain far more clay than the early Earth did. The researchers calculate the odds of life starting on Earth rather than inside a comet at one trillion trillion (10 to the power of 24) to one against.
Professor Wickramasinghe said: "The findings of the comet missions, which surprised many, strengthen the argument for panspermia. We now have a mechanism for how it could have happened. All the necessary elements - clay, organic molecules and water - are there. The longer time scale and the greater mass of comets make it overwhelmingly more likely that life began in space than on earth."
MJ12 SOM1-01 Controversy
The MJ12 (MAJIC) SOM1-01 document supposedly printed 1954 covers two different "Extraterrestrial Biological Entities" (EBE-Type-I "short non-Greys" and EBE-Type-II "Greys"). The authenticity of MJ12 SOM1-01 document is questionable, see Joint statement that SOM101 is hoaxed. On the other hand, Dr.Wood has studied this one extensively and their Website majesticdocuments.com rates it with their highest rating of confidence for authenticity, as suggested in the following presentation (Xcon 2005):
Not all people who have studied the UFO phenomenon agree that it has extraterrestrial origin with "nuts and bolts" UFO craft and "flesh and bones" extraterrestrials. Ufologist Jacques Vallee's opposition to the ETH (Extra Terrestrial Hypothesis) is summarised in his paper, "Five Arguments Against the Extraterrestrial Origin of Unidentified Flying Objects," Journal of Scientific Exploration, 1990:
"Scientific opinion has generally followed public opinion in the belief that unidentified flying objects either do not exist (the "natural phenomena hypothesis") or, if they do, must represent evidence of a visitation by some advanced race of space travellers (the extraterrestrial hypothesis or "ETH"). It is the view of the author that research on UFOs need not be restricted to these two alternatives. On the contrary, the accumulated data base exhibits several patterns tending to indicate that UFOs are real, represent a previously unrecognized phenomenon, and that the facts do not support the common concept of "space visitors." Five specific arguments articulated here contradict the ETH:Since 1990s Vallee seems to be advancing the radical view that UFOs are paranormal in nature and a modern space age manifestation of a phenomenon which assumes different guises in different historical contexts. He thinks the UFO phenomenon is indication that our universe is a subset of something else.
Src: JSE Volume 4: Number 1: Article 9
- unexplained close encounters are far more numerous than required for any physical survey of the earth;
- the humanoid body structure of the alleged "aliens" is not likely to have originated on another planet and is not biologically adapted to space travel;
- the reported behavior in thousands of abduction reports contradicts the hypothesis of genetic or scientific experimentation on humans by an advanced race;
- the extension of the phenomenon throughout recorded human history demonstrates that UFOs are not a contemporary phenomenon; and
- the apparent ability of UFOs to manipulate space and time suggests radically different and richer alternatives."
Keep in mind Charles Fort's quote:
"The Earth is a farm. We are someone else's property".Alien hoaxes / fake alien pictures
Note that the "Roswell UFO crash" incident in 1947 was almost certainly NOT a "Mogul baloon" as claimed by officialdom, but the Santilli autopsy film hoax was an attempt to "exploit", to capitalise on the public's interest in it. Only "consolation" would be, as Stanton Friedman -who correctly refused to accept it as authentic from the beginning- put it: "Because of that footage that has been shown in 32 countries there has been a great deal of public discussions about UFOs that would otherwise not have occurred."
