Anomaly Archives July 27th, 2013 Meeting Review
On Saturday, August 24th, over a dozen Anomalists met at the Anomaly Archives lending library. After extended introductions for the benefit of first-time attendees, we had several good discussions on a wide variety of topics including:
- Reflected on the Stephenville / Bush Crawford Ranch UFO flap and SightingsReport.com’s video compilation of radar and witness data:
Via the Anomalist.com …
… meanwhile, Harold Daniel at UFO Sightings Report presents a whole new way to analyze radar data captured during UFO sightings and gives us an impressive example of New Stephenville, Texas, UFO radar data video:
Video of radar data during the January 8, 2008, UFO incident in the Stephenville, Texas, area. This video superimposes a map under the radar animation and provides annotations to show witness locations and the unknown tracks on radar.
The radar analysis and information shown is from “Stephenville Lights: A Comprehensive Radar and Witness Report Study” by Glen Schulze and Robert Powell. Please refer to the report for details of the witness reports and analysis:

Among some of the anecdotes mentioned while discussing the Stephenville sightings were alleged stories of bales of hay having been upended, and the idea that Putin was given a ride by Bush on a UFO while at the Crawford Ranch. Interestingly, there was a possible Turkish April Fool’s media story the year before the 2008 Stephenville UFO flap:
CRAWFORD, MOSCOW – U.S. President George Walker Bush said Saturday that he had a “subtle deja vu dream“ of Russian President Vladimir Putin emerging in front of an UFO.
Chatting with reporters in his Crawford-Texas ranch, he exuberantly narrated his nearly fourteen-second dream.
“Yeah fellas, he (Putin) was commander cosmonaut of his UFO ship. He landed in our ranch. When I was approaching to greet him in front of his Soviet-made hatch-door, I suddenly woke up. I am still so sad that I hadn`t chance to see the rest of this miraculous dream“, Bush said.
“The weirdest thing in this dream is that this was also a pure deja vu for me. But as my mind is busy with hubble-bubble in world politics, this also seemed to me a jamais vu“, Bush told reporters.
“I directly called Mr. Putin through hot-line today and spoke with him in Kremlin, he was quite surprised and thanked for it.“
Meanwhile in Kremlin, President Putin told Russian media that “The only human being that can come out of an UFO would be President Bush and not himself.“
Refusing to elaborate further on Bush`s dream, Putin said “I`m only interested in the hard-rock group UFO`s songs.“

“The concept was mentioned in a science fiction short story by Julian Huxley, “The Tissue-Culture King”, first published in 1927, in which the protagonist discovers that “caps of metal foil” can be used to block the effects of telepathy.“
We also talked about the cyclic discussions by certain political factions stressing the dangers of terrorists using EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse) weapon effects to attack the United States. We discussed both the fictional and real issues surrounding such extreme electromagnetic events while referencing many of the following news sources and videos:

- Operation Dominic I and II – Starfish Prime Part 2 1962 (Video)
Starfish Prime was a high-altitude nuclear test conducted by the United States of America on July 9, 1962, a joint effort of the Defense Atomic Support Agency (DASA) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Launched via a Thor rocket and carrying a W49 thermonuclear warhead (manufactured by Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory) and a Mk. 4 reentry vehicle, the explosion took place 400 kilometers (250 miles) above Johnston Island in the Pacific Ocean. It was part of Operation Dominic. With the test taking place in such a high altitude, it was one of the five tests conducted by the USA in outer space as defined by the FAI. It produced a yield of 1.4 megatons of TNT.

- High EMF readings spark health concerns near a playground in UK

DIRECTIONS to The Anomaly Archives
It’s a little tricky to find the first time, so here are the directions:
If you’re heading northwest on Research/183 from I-35, Mopac or 360, exit 183 at the Oak Knoll exit, pass through the light at Oak Knoll, and stay on the access road heading north. The next side street off the 183 access road will be Technology Blvd; do not turn on Technology. Immediately after you pass Technology, there will be a driveway on your right (the only one in that area) — Exit into that driveway. There will be a sign overhead for “Forest Plaza.” After you pull in, you’ll have no choice but to go to the left into Forest Plaza. Our building is the back left building within the complex — Suite 302. If you’re heading south on Research/183, you also exit at Oak Knoll, but take the u-turn just before you get to Oak Knoll, get over the right on the northbound access road, and prepare to make the right immediately after Technology Blvd. as in the directions above.
Anomaly Archives On-Line
We are indebted to INACS (Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Study) for allowing the Anomaly Archives lending library to reside within their office space. Each month they hold public meetings of their Board of Directors, and their Education & Research Committees. Therefore, there may be occasional months where we must shift / reschedule our monthly meetings to accommodate their priority use of the space.
