A ufologist from Ecuador claims to have documentary proof that
an alien, whom ge describes as a "Nordic," stayed at the Embassy
of Ecuador in Lima, the capital of the neighboring South
American country of Peru.

Jaime Rodriguez claimed to have copies of reports written by
consular officials at the Embassy of Educator in Lima, including
a fax describing the incident that was emailed to Ecuador's
Ministry of Defense in Quito, the national capital.

According to Rodriguez, the incident began "when a person of
Nordic aspect with perfect facial features and standing a little
taller than 1.8 meters (6 feet) and with a perfume of exotic
fragrance presented himself to the embassy staff and was
interviewed by Alberto Avila Mazchuca, the Ecuadorian attache
for cultural affairs.. The person identified himself as
Commandante (Commander) Banj (Rhymes with the English word
orange--J.T.) and he asked to speak to the Consul, Jose Davila
Gonzalez. Banj said he had to get back to his ship, which was in
a geostationary orbit above the Earth."

"An official contact has been realized," said Haume Rodriguez,
who is investigating the alleged diplomatic contact. (See

Brothers) are common in South America. See this week's feature
story for one such incident.)


On Tuesday, April 3, 2001, , after sunset, "an enormous luminous
and mysterious OVNI (Spanish acronym for UFO--J.T.) moved across
the sky over hillside homes in Colonia Olimpica, a barrio
(neighborhood) on the outskirts of Guadalajara," the second
largest city in Mexico.

"The witnesses said the light emitted a strong reddish-yellowish
light that lit up the houses in the barrio " {People in Colonia
Olimpica left their homes and watched as the large object
descended and moved slowly over the neighborhood "until it
passed slowly beyond their field of view.

The following day, on Wednesday, April 4, 2001, at 7:45 p.m.,
Claudio Cardona was walking on the beach in Puente Tampico, on
the Gulf of Mexico, "on the border between the (Mexican states
of Tamulipas and Vera Cruz, when he saw a UFO.

"According to Cardona, the OVNI resembled 'a lantern in the
sky.' Flying away to the north, the object hovered over the
horizon for several minutes" until Cardona lost sight of it.

"A UFO was reported over Almaty," the former capital of
Kazakhstan in central Asia on Thursday, April 5, 2001.

"A city resident, Darkhan Isakov, managed to record the supposed
UFO with a video camera. He brought the videocassette with the
recorded image to our studios," i.e. the studies of Kazakh
Commercial Television (KCT), which aired the footage in its
local news broadcast.

Osakov's video "shows a glowing spot behind tree branches, , a
teenager in a TV studio, people speaking in an office, a
photograph of a flying saucer and a star map," KCT reported.

At first "Darkhan took the brightly-glowing object for a star of
unusual size (magnitude--J.T.) He said it first seemed to be
coming down and then poised in the air, which had especially
attracted his attention. He saw an odd sphere through the
viewfinder of his video camera."

"After ten minutes of mysterious transformations, the UFO
disappeared behind a house. He watched the flight of the sphere
together with his brother and sister. They had no doubt that
they saw a flying saucer with aliens on board."

However, the Kazakh Ministry of Civil Aviation disputed the
saucer theory, and "officials said it could have been an
aircraft, a spacecraft or a star." (Many thanks to Martin
Montague and BBC World Service for forwarding the KCT


On Monday, March 20, 2001, at 4 p.m.. a woman and her
four-year-old son were on the sidewalk in front of their home in
Newington, Connecticut, just south of Hartford, the state
capital, when they spotted some UFOs.

"I was looking up at clouds and explaining to my four-year-kid
son how they move with the wind," she explained, "When I noticed
two white shiny objects appear, and then two more. They were
crossing the sky in a northeasterly direction."

"When I couldn't see them any more, I looked back at the cloud,
and there was one more that seemed to follow them in the same

"I watched it until it disappeared. Then I went inside for about
ten minutes and came back out. I laid on the sidewalk , watching
the sky again. And, sure enough, I saw a bigger object come from
the northeast heading southwest."

"As I watched it, it split up into a triangle shape, with a
light at each corner and one light moving between them,
'merging' with them. Observed the craft until it disappeared
from sight." (Many thanks to Rev. Billy Dee and Peter B.
Davenport of the National UFO Reporting Center for this case.)


On Wednesday, April 11, 2001, at 8:45 p.m., Denise Koppel was
outdoors when she saw an oblong UFO fly over from west to east
across the sky.

""It was an oblong UFO," Denise reported, "The thing had no
lights. It was approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters) above us.
The (street) lights across the road made the underside of the
object glow. No, not really glow but shimmer maybe. It had
globes all over the underside of the thing. Sort of blended in
with the sky. It was traveling at maybe 70 miles per hour."

On Thursday, April 12, 2001, at 10:15 p.m., Skip Yost and his
wife were returning to their car in Moraine State Park in Butler
County, Pennsylvania when they spotted a strange bright light in
the sky.

My wife and I were returning to our vehicle after spending
approximately two hours viewing the stars. Both with our eyes
and our binoculars , I suddenly spotted a very bright white
light moving extremely fast. through the sky. It was about 80
degrees above the horizon, moving from the southeast to the
northwest. It was not moving in a straight line and much faster
than all of the aircraft in the vicinity."

"The 'object' was moving five or six times faster than any other
aircraft in the sky...Using the binoculars, which were
German-made 16X50's, I was able to determine that the UFO was
triangular-shaped and very dark, except for the 'lights' at the
rear of the craft."

"To the naked eye, the lights appeared to be one big bright
light. However, when I viewed it through the binoculars, it was
easy to see that there were actually three separate and distinct
lights. The two outside lights were larger than the middle one.
They were in a straight line across the rear apron of the

"As the UFO proceeded along, they would switch from a very
bright white to to red, then to blue, then to green and then
back to white again."

"My wife and I both observed the UFO until it was out of sight
over the horizon, all the while making comments to one another.
I observed through my binoculars that the lights changed color
in a distinct pattern from left to right quite rapidly."

Skip added that their vantage point for the observation was near
Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. (Email Form Report)


Three people at the Self-Awareness Earth Institute in Trout
Lake, Washington state, witnessed an unusual UFO display the
evening of Saturday, April 7, 2001.

According to Patricia, one of the eyewitnesses, "On Saturday
night, James (Gilliland, the ranch owner--J.T.) and I were
upstairs when we heard his friend, Paul, outside, yelling
excitedly. We ran out on the deck and saw a bright circular
light traveling up from the far horizon, then up into the night

The glowing circular light arced across the sky at a very slow
speed, "taking about five minutes to cross the sky," Patricia

"It was clearly not a plane (too bright, no flashing
lights--Patricia) and it was the brightest object in the sky."

"As I stood on the front deck watching it, I was overcome by the
cascade of energy, from my head down to my toes. Like being
washed in a shower of glittering golden globes of light with
energy pulsing through my entire body I felt an incredible joy
and love and lightness and radiance. Paul began yelling that he
was getting pulses of energy as well."

When the encounter began, James Gilliland grabbed his camcorder,
mounted it on the tripod in the front yard, and began shooting
the footage. Suddenly, Patricia said, "the object sent a pulse
directly at the camera."

"Kater, we all stood outside, gathered around the fire and
marveled at what we had seen and felt." (Many thanks to John M.
Novak for this report.)


"Several Moroccan and Italian archaeologists have shed a new
light on the region around Nador" in northeastern Morocco.

"The team discovered three intact skeletons of children dating
from the third millenium B.C."

According to OVNI Maroc, the skeletons were unusually large,
about 190 centimeters (6 feet, 3 inches) in length.

"In a communique to the Moroccan Institute of Science, the team
reported that the skeletons were found in a substrata in a
grotto called Iffri Namar. The remains appear to be from an
unknown culture dating from about 3,400 B.C. Eight samples of
dessicated bone were taken from the remains and sent to Rime for
DNA analysis." (See the newspaper El Ansa for April 13, 2001.
Merci beaucoup au OVNI Maroc et Alfredo Lissoni de Centro
Ufologico Nazionale d'Italia pour cette nouvelles.)

(Editor's Comment: Maybe Morocco was the original homeland of
the Biblical giant, Goliath of Gath.)

 From the UFO Files...


In South America, the most common types of extraterrestrials
sighted are the Hermanos Espaciales (Space Brothers), also known
as Nordics of Off-World Humans (OWH).

The heyday of Space Brother sightings was in the 1950s, as this
account from Argentina will show.

In April 1957, Ricardo Machado (real name is still classified by
the Carabineros or state/provincial police of Argentina--J.T.)
was one happy fella. After many years of careful saving, he had
just bought a used 1952 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and was eager
to try it out.

So, after gassing up in his home city of Cordoba, located about
480 kilometers (300 miles) west of Buenos Aires, the national
capital, Ricardo hopped onto his machine, opened the throttles
and thundered.

With the slipstream ruffling his dark hair and pushing his
sunglasses flush against his face, Ricardo was "riding along a
road about 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the (Cordoba)
international airport, when his machine suddenly failed."

With a muttered cough, the Harley's powerful engine died out.
Gaping in amazement, Ricardo coasted the motorcycle over to the
side of the road, slid off the leather seat and set the

"Dismounting to investigate, he perceived a huge disc some 18
meters (60 feet) wide." He estimated the central portion of the
silver disc to be about 4 meters (13 feet) high. The saucer was
"hovering about 15 meters (50 feet) above the ground just ahead
of him."

"Terrified, he hid in the ditch."

"Silently, except for a sound like the faint hiss of air
escaping from a valve, the disc came down to a height of about
two meters (5 feet, 6 inches) and a sort of lift (pampasout onto
the open roads of the elev in the USA--J.T.) descended from its
base, coming down almost to the ground."

"In it was a man about 1.6 meters (5 feet, 8 inches) in height
who came over and gently coaxed the motorcyclist out of the

The alien "then stroked his (Ricardo's) forehead to calm him.
The stranger's garb was like a diver's suit, fitting his body
closely, and seemingly (made) of some kind of plastic."

"Entering the disc via the lift-shaft with his companion,"
Ricardo found there were five or six similarly dressed men
seated before instrument panels. An extraordinary light filled
the cabin, and there were series of large square portholes which
strangely enough he had been unable to see from outside."

"The motorcyclist was then escorted back to his own machine. His
companion placed a hand on his shoulder in a gesture of farewell
and re-entered the lift-shaft, which rapidly rose into the

"The disc, (made) of an iridescent bluish-green metal, climbed
swiftly to what he thought might be 750 meters (2,500 feet) and
vanished rapidly towards the northwest (the high Andes--J.T.)
During the next hour or so, the same machine (UFO) or another
one was seen at six or seven places along the same" road.

Ricardo returned safely to Cordoba without, Jemry Regnery Co.,
Chicago, Ill., 1969, pages 87 and 88.)

Well, that's it for this week. You know, there hasn't been a
sizeable earthquake for a couple of weeks now. Dare I say it?
Could "Earthquake Season" finally, finally be over? We'll find
out next week, with the return of "the paper that goes home-UFO
Roundup. Join us then for more coverage of UFO and paranormal
events from all over the planet Earth. Have a great week!
