We Are Not Alone: UFOs, Aliens No Strangers To Grand Valley
By Gary Harmon
The Daily Sentinel

Far from being vast, vacant spaces between us bipeds and the
stars, the skies are full of wonders, some closer than you might

By some accounts the skies above Earth are busy with activity.

That there are unidentified flying objects is not exactly a
revelation in the 21st century. They're part of the cultural
lexicon: UFOs.

But the skies above western Colorado and the Grand Valley might
be a little different, unusual, even.

It was somewhere above western Colorado, maybe eastern Utah,
that a Kansas man said he found "hard evidence" that UFOs are,
as the phrase frequently goes, "not of this Earth."

And in Paonia lives a woman who says she can explain why it is
that strange lights seem to pulsate with some regularity over
the Grand Valley's skies.

Hint: It's not necessarily because of what's above, but what
lies beneath.

"Grand Mesa is a huge facility," said Marcellina Beckwith.
"There are portals and vortexes that open up all over the Grand

Humans can't see them because they exist in different dimensions
than humans occupy, she said.

Beckwith said she's in a position to know. She is the
reincarnated soul of the commander of the craft from Zeta
Reticuli that crashed in 1947 in Roswell, N.M., Beckwith said.

The author of two books, Stranded on Earth: The Story of a
Roswell Crash Survivor and Zeti Child: Lost Upon a One Star
World, Beckwith is a regular columnist for the monthly UFO
newsletter "Star Beacon," writing as Commander Sanni Ceto, her
identity at the time of the crash.

The sky above the Grand Valley is a busy place, Beckwith said,
because its inner recesses are filled with creatures who are
working with the American military. The creatures, called
reptoids, are not to be trusted.

She is here, Beckwith said, because "someday, your earth might
need our help, to save you from a disaster that might be man-

Under Quarantine

The fact is, said Beckwith and Max Harris, a Grand Junction man
who tracks all things UFO, Earth is something other than a

Actually, humans and Earth are under quarantine.

Humans, it turns out, aren't to be trusted and that is why the
race is stuck on a tiny rock swirling in a far corner of the
universe. One of many universes, actually.

There is more. A lot more. But for the moment, it's enough to
know that the reason humans occasionally see UFOs is because
more advanced beings are checking up on their progeny.

It's also important to know, Harris said, that it's no accident
that the Mayan calendar marks the end of days on Dec. 21, 2012.

It's at that point that Earth's universe begins a new revolution
of 25,625 years, launching us all into a new, better dimension.

In the meantime, though, Earth remains a cosmic Hells' Kitchen.

Like a restaurant with a reputation for poisoning the clientele,
"We're on everybody's maps" as a place to avoid, Harris said.
"We're angry. We're hostile."

But, like any other malignancy, humans also have to be observed,
presumably from safe vantage points.

Lights Over Redlands

Perhaps that explains the experience of KJCT-TV news director
Karla Shotts, who got a call Jan. 25 from the newsroom about 7
p.m., telling her the station was getting calls about lights in
the sky.

Sure enough, Shotts said, the lights were visible from her
Redlands-area home.

There were three sets of lights, Shotts said, hovering in the
night sky. She thought of them as a clock, with the moon at
midnight, one set of lights at 11, another a 3 and the third in
the center, where the hands would attach.

The light arrays were identical, she said. A larger light that
flashed blue, red and then gold was surrounded by tiny lights
that behaved like strobe lights.

"All three stayed exactly in the same place for at least two
hours," she said.

About 9 p.m., it was over.

"The one at 11 disappeared first, then the second to disappear
was the one in the middle and the one at 3 was the last to go,"
she said. "There was no motion, no nothing. They were just

Shotts checked with military bases in Colorado and was told no
one was doing anything in the skies over Grand Junction.

There's no video of the event because "power bumps" that night
near the station left it with irregular electrical service, she

No, nothing cosmic. More like road work, she said. "We lost a
lot of stuff that week."

And about the UFO? "It was just really neat," she said.

But she and other Redlands residents saw something. In that,
they are =97 yes, but wait for it =97 not alone.

'Smoking Gun'

Robert White, a Kansas man who was passing through the Grand
Valley in 1985, was driving west on Interstate 70 out of Grand
Junction when he, too, spotted lights hovering in the darkness.

His view was of two parallel, elongated tubes, glowing blue, in
the sky.

"Then I saw a huge ball of light and the thing took off straight
in the air," he said. He saw something strike a nearby hillside
and ran to see more.

He found a groove in the ground leading to a glowing, hot
object, White said.

He retrieved something from the car to help him hold the object,
which had cooled by the time he returned.

The object, shaped like an elongated teardrop with "chads that
stick out," has been determined to be pure aluminum, he said.

"It does strange things," such as interfere with electrical
devices, pick up radio signals and mystify viewers, White said.

"Everybody that sees it agrees, they've never seen anything like
it, ever," he said.

White has taken polygraph tests, submitted the object to various
labs and been generally frustrated that the object hasn't
generated the interest it deserves, he said.

"The mainstream media doesn't want to touch it," he said.

His Web site calls it "the bullet from the smoking gun" that
shows there is more science than fiction to UFOs.

On his Web site, ufohardevidence.com, White speculates that the
artifact might have a Martian origin.

White wasn't alone when he had his encounter. There was another
witness, he said, but declined to elaborate.

"She'll never be found," he said.

'I Don't Doubt'

Robert St. John, a fixture in Grand Junction radio for decades,
said White is "the real deal."

He's hefted White's artifact and talked to White, St. John said.

More to the point, he saw what White saw, 10 years later.

He was running on Colorado National Monument one August morning
in 1995 when he saw the same kind of thing described by White
hovering over Fruita.

"Then it drops two pods that shoot into the Bookcliffs," St.
John said. "There was no sound. They gave out a white light like
a welder's light. Poof, poof and they were gone."

The object itself floated in the air, he said. "It shimmered
into existence and it shimmered out of existence."

That very same day, minutes later, a man in Salida saw exactly
the same thing, St. John said. He got the Salida event on tape
and it was shown on Denver television, St. John said.

Given all that, "I don't doubt anything anyone says anymore"
about UFOs, he said.

Which brings us back to Beckwith, who said that White's story
about his artifact "makes sense, as Earth people haven't
perfected the process to create pure, flawless aluminum."

White's theory, though, that his object came from Mars is
flawed, she said, because Mars is mostly iron.

'I'm A Star Person'

It's now Beckwith's job to help humanity find its way through
the maze of growth in the cosmos, she said.

Humans didn't just happen upon this planet, Beckwith said. The
planet itself is no coincidence.

Earth is the result of "terraforming" and mountains make for
great bases as they can be hollowed out, "like Cheyenne

Earth's denizens are the result of sophisticated genetic work by
the Pleiadians, a race of human-like people who hail from the
stars of the constellation Pleiades, she said.

"I'm a star person," she said.

She has sewn together representations of her father, Khinyeo, as
well as other grays, and she sells them on the Web.

But her real work is the preparation for the events of 2012,
when the fate of humanity will be decided, she said.

It is then that humans will decide whether they are to be
creatures of love and peace, or of hatred and war, she said.

"I'm here as a teacher and educator" intended to reveal the
truth of humanity's origins and its potential, Beckwith said.

"I want to see the cover-up ended."

She is particularly suited for her job because she had a
reckless streak, herself, as Sanni Ceto.

"We were not supposed to be there," she wrote in "Stranded on
Earth." "As a matter of fact, we were violating the orders of
the Council by coming to Earth in the first place. Earth was
strictly off-limits to all spacecraft, but my desire to lead a
specimen-collecting scientific expedition there had been just
too tempting to let a little thing such as Federation rules and
regulations stop me."

Her craft crashed because she was momentarily distracted during
an electrical storm, and in her book, Beckwith recounts her
treatment by her human captors and her eventual torture and
death as Sanni Ceto.

Beckwith grew up in Ohio and made her way with the help of the
Star Beacon to Paonia, where she said she finally feels at home
on Earth.

Helping Humanity

There are ways, said Harris, to help humanity along its course.

"When somebody does something unselfish," he said, "they
potentialize themselves." And in doing so, "You accelerate our
own evolution. Every human being is the beneficiary."

He hasn't seen a UFO, Harris said, but he doesn't need to,

And those who have seen them aren't necessarily ready to concede
that aliens walk among us.

But among many who say they have seen a UFO, there is a bond.

"Once you see, you know," St. John said. "Once you see, you

Understanding, though, has its price. Ask Agent K of "Men in
Black," who dealt daily with the scum, and the cream, of the

"They're beautiful, aren't they?" K said, scanning heavenward.
"The stars. I never really look at them anymore, but they
actually are quite... beautiful."

And now, if you'd be good enough to look right here ...
