McMinnville, Oregon is home to the famous UFO case from the 1950s, where Paul and Evelyn Trent saw, and photographed a UFO. Those photos made news around the world, and are still considered among the best UFO photos taken.
There's been a new sighting from a few weeks ago in McMinnville, reported to Brian Vike , Director of HBCC UFO Research. You can read the report here. (thanks to
Alien Casebook for the link.)
A very personal post by Greg Bishop on his blog UFO Mystic about the "Queen of the Reptilians," Pamela Stonebrooke, who he knew at one time.
I have an interest in Stonebrooke's story, because I'm generally interested in stories like hers. But also because, about eight or ten years ago, when I was studying folklore at my college, I was doing a lot of research projects on UFOs. (Being folklore, they let me get away with it.) My final project in graduate school (similar to a thesis) was entitled "My Alien Lizard Lover: Animal Lore and UFOs" and that title was inspired by the experiences of Pamela Stonebrooke. (I never went through the final hoops of rewriting the thing for the fifteenth time, so never got my masters.)
You can read Greg's piece Pamela Stonebrooke: Queen of the Reptilians here, and be sure to listen to his interview with Pamela on Radio Misterioso.

Thanks to Lesley of The Debris Field, and Greg Bishop at UFO Mystic for the links.
An individual in Arizona is selling a flying saucer on Craig's List. Seems the city is annoyed with the thing in his front yard. Where else would you put a flying saucer? Buyer has to pick it up though. It looks just like something right out of a 1950s flying saucer movie. If only I lived in Arizona. And had the asking price, which is pretty high, even for something as groovy as this.
A very neat painting of what appears to be an abduction;human on the highway at night in beam of light from spacehip -- by Diana Pizzuti, who posted it at the on the Coast to Coast site. The painting was inspired by her mother's experience. What makes this especially interesting is that, according to Pizzuti, this happened in the late 1940s.

You can watch the movie Communion, (in TEN parts, broken up into ten, separate clips.) on Alien Casebook. Streiber recently wrote about his experiences that began more than 20 years ago, on December 26, 1985.
This is what Whitley has to say about now, regarding his experiences:
Friday December 12th, 2008 - By Whiteley Streiber
It is late here, midnight passing. December has come again, and for the past few months I have been enduring the same demonic nights that I experience every year at this time, as my spirit relives the hard pilgrimage that led to the night of December 26, 1985.
The feelings are so complex, the fears so deep and the love, too, so deep, that sometimes, even after all these years,the whole emotional avalanche of having the visitors emerge into my life threatens to drown me.
You can read more from Streiber on his site Unknown Country. And here.

Sean Casteel reviews How To Contact the Space People, contactee and "PK man" Ted Owens book, reprinted by Global Communications:
Nowadays, Ted Owens remains a remarkable example of possible, even likely, true contact with the alien presence even more than 20 years after his death. Owens was one of the few documented cases in which his paranormal claims could be empirically proven, similar in some ways to Uri Geller, the Israeli psychic who could telekinetically bend spoons and stop watches before one's very eyes.
Owens, who billed himself as "PK Man" (Psychokinetic Man), had the testimonies and affidavits of lawyers and other reliable sources to prove his abilities-which included being able to predict as well as control the weather, to cause lightning to strike a given location at will, or even to cause a UFO to appear to awestruck witnesses.
You can read the all of the review on UFO Digest.

The blog My UFO Blog has posted the 14 minute film from 1902: A Trip to the Moon. It's 14 minutes long and a delight.
Well, I'm playing around with some e-book self-publishing stuff, it's fun and here you go. As you can see on the right in the menu, you can download a free PDF of my thoughts on "UFO Mary," and Richelle Hawks very kindly allowed me to use one of her articles as well.
I've also revised, slightly, the McMinnville "scrapbook" retitled McMinnville, Oregon UFO: Festivals and Hoaxes -- you can find it on my Lulu.com storefront as well.

There is a great website called LP Cover Lover.com, that is nothing but LP covers from all genres. It's really fun, some posts have links so you can hear some of the cuts from the LPs. There's a category menu on the left; or you can just have fun browsing at random. Here are a few from the outer space category. Enjoy!
Pink Tentacle, an excellent and unique blog, brings us images from the 1970s artist Kazuaki Saito, whose artwork was used on several covers of SF magazine, which are very wonderful.
