Alien Video: Puppet Or Real ET?
By Kirk Mitchell
The Denver Post

A few minutes of grainy, black and white video show a shadowy
creature with big eyes peeping over a windowsill. But does it
show a puppet or an alien from outer space?

The video, purportedly capturing proof of alien life, was
released this morning during a press conference at the Tivoli
Student Union on the Auraria campus in downtown Denver.

Over the course of three minutes or so, the footage shows a
white creature with a balloon-shaped head that keeps popping up
and down in a windowsill that was 8 feet above ground. The face
was white, with large black eyes that seemed to blink.

"If it was a puppet, it would be a very elaborate and
sophisticated puppet," said Alejandro Rojas, education director
of MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, who spoke at the press

Rojas said the video was taken on July 17, 2003, in Nebraska by
Stan Tiger Romanek, who set up the camera because he thought
peeping Toms had been looking into his house at his two teenage
daughters. Romanek did not appear at the news conference.

The creature would slowly pop its head up and peer through the
window then drop suddenly down, apparently trying to avoid
detection. It raised its head up about a half dozen times. The
alien's other body parts were not visible.

It was unclear whether the creature was taller than 8 feet and
was crouching to avoid detection or whether it was standing on
something. It also was difficult, because of the faintness of
the object, to tell whether it was three dimensional.

Romanek, who moved to Colorado after the recording, claims to
have had more than 100 encounters with aliens, Rojas said.

One of many websites detailing Romanek's encounters shows
photographs of him with red marks on his back and arms that
Romanek says were inflicted by aliens. He says he was abducted
by extraterrestrials and has posted pictures of spherical burn
marks in his yard marking where a spaceship hovered or landed.

UFO on a road trip to Pennsylvania, 44 birds have mysteriously
crashed into his car window because of some bizarre
electromagnetic effect resulting from the contact, he writes.

But Rojas said preliminary research that he and other experts
have done on the video suggests that it is authentic.

"I don't believe they have the ability or the motivation to
fabricate a hoax," Rojas said at the news conference.

About 30 journalists were in the room for the screening,
including a dozen TV cameras. Photographers were not allowed to
capture images from the footage today because experts are still
reviewing it, Rojas said.

The screening, organized by Denver resident Jeff Peckman, was
not open to the public.

Peckman says he hopes to provoke debate about the existence of
extraterrestrial life.

"We believe this will be somewhat of an historic news
conference," Peckman said. "We're very pleased to see this level
of interest."

A documentary is in production that will include much more of
the videotape and other evidence, he says. It is due to be
released later this year.

Peckman has organized an initiative drive to require the city of
Denver to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission to
handle alien encounters, saying that the government has not
disclosed all it knows about the existence of life beyond Earth.

During the press conference, Peckman frequently referenced the
initiative. A petition drive is currently underway. Peckman
needs 4,000 signatures for the item to make it onto the November

Peckman also said the technological benefits of making contact
with extraterrestrials make it a very worthwhile endeavor.

Governments and industry giants have an incentive to keep a
growing body of evidence of the existence of aliens hushed up,
Peckman said, because the technology they could bring eclipses
anything available on Earth.
