| A spectacular aerial event occurred the night of October
3, 1996 and was viewed across the western United States from the Mexican
border to northern California. Experts at UCLA and Sandia National Laboratory
labeled the phenomenon an extraordinary meteor that may have entered the
Earth's atmosphere, bounced back into space, orbited the planet and re-entered
again before falling to Earth somewhere in California -- a sequence of
events calculated to explain the wide variety of sighting reports that
flooded police, radio and television news lines that night. |
However, that explanation does not begin to square with a sequence of events described by noted UFO/abduction researchers Dr. Roger Leir and Derrel Sims, who were not only eyewitnesses that night but continued to track a bizarre series of further events over the next four days. Leir and Sims were joined by a third witness who wishes to remain anonymous. CNI News editor Michael Lindemann has met this third witness and can attest not only that he is real, but that he shows every sign of being highly credible. This man is a practicing surgeon and also a Brigadier General in the Air Force Reserves.
In the following story, written by veteran UFO reseracher and journalist Don Robertson (Carpinteria Coastal View) of Carpinteria, CA, the Brigadier General's testimony is reported second hand by Dr. Roger Leir, his long-time friend. Dr. Leir is Assistant Section Director of the Ventura/Santa Barbara Chapter of MUFON. Additional remarks by CNI News editor Michael Lindemann are inserted in brackets.

Leir reported, "Derrel and I were making a trip to
the airport in Burbank last night, and at exactly 8:46pm, on the north
side of the 101 Freeway, approximately one-half mile west of Parkway Calabasas,
the whole sky lit up, and night turned to day! I was driving in the fast
lane of the freeway and my mouth fell open because I saw a huge burning
gold ball with a conical tail coming out of it that looked something like
a comet. It was the most brilliant silverish-white I've ever seen, and
it was dropping sparks toward the ground. This was traveling just above
the level of the hills somewhere between the area of Bell Canyon and the
freeway. And, incidentally, Rocketdyne is in this area too."

According to two well known UFO investigators who were traveling East recently, "The whole ridge line at the Rocketdyne facility was amazingly lit up as they drove by it. (The Rocketdyne facility is located just above Chatsworth in the LA San Fernando Valley). "There were huge beams of bright light shining skyward from the ground. We couldn't believe it!"
I attended the Ventura-Santa Barbara MUFON meeting last night (Friday 1-24-97). The chap I sat next to told me, "That whole ridge in the Santa Susannas (Rocketdyne area) is honeycombed with caves...it's an underground facility.
They're landing space vehicles there, working on anti-gravity drive. But it is our stuff, some of which is based on reverse engineering. There are several major companies involved, as well as major universities. The money for it all comes through government grants to the universities, which are used to fund these black projects. The University of Pennsylvania is part of it back east, and Stanford University out here."
The "stranger" works at military facility in California, and says he has several close ties with people in the Intelligence community. He also brought up the rift between factions in the intelligence world. "There are lots of fed-up officials, astronauts, and other high ranking people who want the truth about everything released," the stranger concluded. I didn't know the man but he knew me from reading my column; seeing my picture in the Coastal View. He seemed pretty sincere to me. You have to make up your own mind.
I asked him what happened on October 3rd last year. "It was an accident. The vehicle came down at Rocketdyne, and they fixed it, and sent it off. They brought in an elite unit to sanitize the whole thing," the stranger told me. Several days earlier a man ordered coffee next to me early one morning: "A big one...I got a long drive. I commute to Canoga Park every day."
"Down near Rocketdyne, eh," I asked? "Yes!" he said, "I work there for Boeing."
"Really!" I said, surprised. "Are you working on the ships that come in every week down there?"
His eyes got real big, and he paused before answering. "I'm just an engineer," he said, and quickly disappeared out the door.
I have believed what the stranger told me ever since the events of Oct. 3. The coffee drinker just confirms that belief, and we are digging deeper into what's going on at Rocketdyne. Civilian guards there gave us confirmation, and one investigator saw a silver disc cavorting over the site last October. As I say, we just have to be patient. At the same time, we are paying for all of this! We deserve to know the truth.
