Can you believe that Colonel H.G. Shaw, the Colonel portrayed by Matthew Broderick in the movie Glory, was one of the first United States military officers to report seeing a flying UFO and its occupants? Believe it. His testimony about the incident is recorded below from the "Stockton Evening Mail" November 25th, 1896. nearly 51 years prior to the Roswell, NM case.
It doesn’t seem that far fetched when both one of the most Senior Scientists at Area 51 Reveals All He Knew About UFO’s, Anti-Gravity, and Aliens Before Dying, and also the former head of Lockheed Skunkworks, Ben Rich reveals that we can travel the stars with technology hidden deep within black budget military programs, it should open some minds about the UFO/Alien phenomena. Those men had security clearances so high it’s highly probable they knew about technology and the means from which it came that even Presidents had no access to. Therefore, their “credibility” is about as pristine as it comes.
So, where did we get the technology? How long have we had it? Is it possible our government (or agents within it) have been at work since the late 1800’s? When one considers how many people reported seeing a circular ship, “monstrous in size,” above Galisteo Junction, New Mexico (now known as Lamy), more than 20 years before the Great War, perhaps it does go back that far! The video below shows how UFO's have been captured on camera throughout time, as early as the 1800's… there is more to follow…
TWENTY YEARS BEFORE COLONEL SHAW’S ACCOUNT:
It was an international marvel of the unexplained, and at the height of the industrial revolution, and more than 20 years before the Great War, the world was both shaken and stirred. Reports of mystery airships were popping up everywhere. In the United States the sightings began in the west and spread eastward.
The first major case happened in New Mexico on March 26th 1880 in the skies above a small town called Galisteo Junction, now known as Lamy. Voices were heard, voices which seemed to be coming from the sky above. When the people looked up they saw a circular ship, “monstrous in size”. It’s movements were described as approaching rapidly and then slowed to an elegant waltz across the sky.
It is said that the occupants of these ships were human, but their clothing and behavior was bizarre. The occupants of these ships, when spoken too, claimed to be from Mars. A few artifacts, a cup and a beautiful flower wrapped in silk-like paper, were said to have fallen from the ship.
The following day, an unknown, well dressed, stranger, identified only as a “collector of curiosities” came into town. He told the local authorities that the artifacts were of Asiatic origin. He offered a large some of money for the finds. So large a sum that the depot agent who had found them couldn’t resist. The collector and the artifacts were never seen again.
On November 18th, 1896, a Californian man by the name of Colonel H.G. Shaw told reporters he had seen what appeared to be a landed space craft. It had a diameter of 25 feet and was around 150 feet in total length. Three slender 7ft tall beings of unknown origin are said to have stepped off the ship. They attempted to kidnap Shaw, and he narrowly escaped. The ship then lifted off the ground and sped off, out of sight.
There are several more mystery airship sightings, each one more complex and convoluted then the next. From the members of the secret “Aero Club” to the reported uses of an unknown “N.B. gas”, a substance, people claimed, made objects lighter than air.
An April 24th, 1897 report of Harper’s Weekly sums up the Phantom Airship phenomenon of the 1800’s nicely. It states: “The airship as a practical invention is believed to be so nearly ripe that a story of its appearance in the sky is not necessarily to be received with disrespect, not unless you assumed that thousands of Americans had lost their senses, a discomforting notion which some scientists, editors and skeptics seem to embrace.”
COLONEL SHAW’S RECOLLECTION OF HIS UFO ENCOUNTER:
Reported by the "Stockton Evening Mail" November 25th, 1896. nearly 51 years prior to the Rosswell:
THREE STRANGE BEINGS
"Were it not for the fact that I was not alone when I witnessed the strange sight I would never have mentioned it at all. Wednesday afternoon I went out to Lodi and Lockeford in company with Camille Spooner, a young man recently arrived from Nevada. I went to the places mentioned in quest of material to form an exhibit to represent this county at the Fresno Citrus Fair. We left Lodi on the return trip, I should judge, shortly before 6 o'clock, and we were jogging along quietly when the horse stopped suddenly and gave a snort of terror."
"Looking up we beheld three strange beings. They resembled humans in many respects, but still they were not like anything I had ever seen. They were nearly or quite seven feet high and very slender. We were both somewhat startled, as you may readily imagine, and the first impulse was to drive on. The horse, however, refused to budge, and when we saw that we were being regarded more with an air of curiosity than anything else, we concluded to get out and investigate. I walked up to where the strange looking persons were and addressed them. I asked where they were from. They seemed not to understand me, but began – well, "warbling" expresses it better than talking. Their remarks, if such you would call them, were addressed to each other, and sounded like a monotonous chant, inclined to be guttural. I saw it was no use to attempt a conversation, so I satisfied myself with watching and examining them. They seemed to take great interest in ourselves, the horse and buggy, and scrutinized everything very carefully."
WEIGHED LESS THAN AN OUNCE EACH
"While they were thus engaged I was enabled to inspect them as well. As I have already stated, they were seven feet in height and very slender. I noticed, further, that their hands were quite small and delicate, and that their fingers were without nails. Their feet, however, were nearly twice as long as those of an ordinary man, though they were narrow, and the toes were also long and slender. I noticed, too, that they were able to use their feet and toes much the same as a monkey; in fact, they appeared to have much better use of their feet than their hands. I presently discovered that this was probably a provision of nature. As one of then came close to me I reached out to touch him, and placing my hand under his elbow pressed gently upward, and lo and behold I lifted him from the ground with scarcely an effort. I should judge that the specific gravity of the creature was less than an ounce. It was then that I observed him try to grasp the earth with his toes to prevent my lifting him. You can readily understand that their slight weight made such a provision necessary, or they might be blown away."
"They were without any sort of clothing, but were covered with a natural growth hard to describe; it was not hair, neither was it like feathers, but it was as soft as silk to the touch, and their skin was like velvet. Their faces and heads were without hair, the ears were very small, and the nose had the appearance of polished ivory, while the eyes were large and lustrous. The mouth, however, was small, and it seemed to me that they were without teeth. That and other things led me to believe that they neither ate nor drank, and that life was sustained by some sort of gas. Each of them had swung under the left arm a bag to which was attached a nozzle, and every little while one or the other would place the nozzle on his mouth, at which time I heard a sound of escaping gas. It was much the same sound as is produced by a person blowing up a football."
OF INDESCRIBABLE BEAUTY
"From the description I give I do not want you to get the idea that these creatures were hideous. In appearance they were markedly the contrary. They were possessed of a strange and indescribable beauty. I can express myself in no other way. They were graceful to a degree, and more divinely beautiful than anything I ever beheld."
"The strangest part of the story is yet to come. It is the lights they carried. Each held to his hand something about the size of a hen's egg. Upon holding them up and partly opening the hand, these substances emitted the most remarkable, intense and penetrating light one can imagine. Notwithstanding its intensity it had no unpleasant effect upon our eyes, and we found we could gaze directly at it. It seemed to me to be some sort of luminous mineral, though they had complete control of it."
"Finally they became tired of examining us and our horse and buggy, and then one of them, at a signal from one who appeared to be the leader, attempted to lift me, probably with the intention of carrying me away. Although I made not the slightest resistance he could not move me, and finally the three of them tried it without the slightest success. They appeared to have no muscular power outside of being able to move their own limbs."
"Well, after trying in vain to move either of us they turned in the direction of the Woodbridge canal, near which we were, and as they flashed their lights towards the bridge we beheld a startling sight. There, resting in the air about twenty feet above the water, was an immense airship. It was 150 feet in length at least, though probably not over twenty feet in diameter at the widest part. It was pointed at both ends, and outside of a large rudder there was no visible machinery. The three walked rapidly toward the ship, not as you or I walk, but with a swaying motion, their feet only touching the ground at intervals of about fifteen feet. We followed them as rapidly as possible, and reached the bridge as they were about to embark. With a little spring they rose to the machine, opened a door in the side, and disappeared within. I do not know of what the affair was built, but just before it started I struck it with a rock and it gave no sound. It went through the air very rapidly and expanded and contracted with a muscular motion, and was soon out of sight."
"I have a theory, which, of course, is only a theory, that those we beheld were inhabitants of Mars, who haw been sent to the earth for the purpose of securing one of its inhabitants. I feel safe in asserting that the stories being told by certain San Francisco attorneys are clumsy fakes, and should not be given credence by anyone."
