MUFON says Colorado “hotbed” of UFO activity

So which state in the union has the most UFO sightings? New Mexico? Alabama? Alabama? John Schuessler, the international director of MUFON or the Mutual UFO Network, says it’s Colorado.

According to an interview the UFO expert did with KFOX in El Paso, he described Colorado as a “hotbed” of UFO activity, which is why they are headquartered there in Schuessler’s basement.

The former aerospace engineer spends his days tracking down people who had made UFO sightings with the help of 3,000 members of 450 field investigators.

Bigfoot, the Missing Link…to UFOs?

Some people believe that Bigfoot, that big hairy 7-foot plug beast who leaves huge footprints in the dust for hunters to find, could be the missing link to mankind. But to UFOs?

That’s what Bigfoot expert and Michigan Mutual UFO Network Field Investigator Lisa Shiel believes and theorizes in her new lectures and her new book, “Backyard Bigfoot.” (NOTE: Those of you in Burton, Michigan on May 7 can hear those theories at the Walli’s East Restaurant, according to the press release.)

According to her publisher’s website at www.slipdownmountain.com, she claims Bigfoot as some kind of connection to UFOs, but it doesn’t go into much detail as to exactly what that could be, but she claims in her sample chapter that “UFOs, hairy dwarves, glowing-eyed monsters, mysterious footprints-these phenomena and others play a role in the hairy hominid mystery.” Sounds interesting.

The Zamora Incident: BS or Not?

All UFO aficionados know about the Zamora incident in Soccoro, N.M. named for Lonnie Zamora, the state police officer who reported seeing a strange craft in the desert back in 1964.

But the New Mexicans for Science and Reason say that while Zamora was sincere in his report, they think it’s all just a bunch of hooey.

KRQE 13 News in Albuquerque filed a report on the Zamora incident and spoke with Dave Thomas of the NMSR who said, “I think the policeman was sincere when he thought he saw something strange. I don’t think it came all the way from outer space.?

He said his organization theorizes the craft that Zamora saw following a
chase through the desert was actually an American test spacecraft or the precursor to NASA’s Lunar Lander, according to a log book entry at the White Sands Missile Range. It sounds very plausible, but the only wrench in the theory is that the skeletal design of the test craft doesn’t match the drawing that Zamora made that fateful night. Thomas said the minature Bell helicopter that held up the craft could have been mistaken for something that looked very strange.

The Zamora incident is one of the more interesting UFO incidents in history because it is one of the few times that the witness was credible, and there was physical evidence left at the scene of the sighting including prints in the ground left by the spacecraft and footprints left by people that Zamora claimed to have seen.
