Happy New Year!!

As I write this we are hurtling towards the new year. 2022 has not been a particularly good year for me personally but I hope we all have gained something positive from the experiencing of it. It has certainly been a momentous year for the study of UFO encounters and for the continued expansion of “conversations over saucers.” The halls of academe and the offices of governments and militaries have been abuzz with talk of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena and the Archiving of the Impossible. “Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K” my friends. Even the former President & First Lady’s production company are apparently getting in on the UFO/UAP-Action with a new Netflix series based on the famous Betty & Barney Hill abduction case…

For more on the latest news on the government’s attempts to rebrand UFOs as UAPs, check out these links and more in the Anomaly News Headlines section below:

I would also like to direct your attention to these excellent analyses by skeptic Mick West:

Meanwhile, you should absolutely check out the new Vodcasts featured in our Video-Of-The-Week section below from Greg & Dana Newkirk / Planet Weird / Newkirk Museum of the Paranormal, called the Haunted Objects Podcast. The Newkirks have created the best paranormal community and recently launched this phenomenal podcast. All 5 episodes released thus far have been fantastic and I highly recommend each of them but for those of you interested in UFOs you should take a gander (you can also listen to an audio-only version via your favorite podcatcher app) at these 2 episodes about Mothman and the Betty & Barney Hill abduction case.

PLUS!!! An Extra Super Mega Audio-Of-The-Week with The scary sound of Earth’s magnetic field and a slew of amazing audio podcast content focused mainly on UFOs, Alien Abduction, Sexuality / Gender Identity, Tarot and the often sorely lacking issue of ETHICS plus some ecological approaches! All links to Spotify unless otherwise indicated.

Until next year … have fun, be safe, and keep exploring the mysteries of reality!

Defending the Mothman: High Strangeness Holiday Special – Episode 005 – Haunted Objects Podcast

“Ever been so scared you dropped a baby? In this holiday special, we crush on the best high strangeness movie ever made: The Mothman Prophecies. Along the way, Connor offends Indrid Cold, Greg demonstrates how to drive ultraterrestrials crazy, Dana has trouble talking to ghosts, and we learn why West Virginia’s official monster is a queer icon. Slather on your chapstick and hold onto your babies, because it’s time to defend Mothman from slander.”

… and …

Examining Betty Hill’s Alien Abduction Dress – Episode 003 – Haunted Objects Podcast

“In September of 1961, on a desolate mountain pass in New Hampshire, strange lights in the sky heralded the introduction of a new, more terrifying type of extraterrestrial encounter; one where stolen memories, painful medical experiments, and regression hypnosis replace friendly visitors from Venus. In this episode, we examine one of the rarest artifacts in the Newkirk Museum: pieces of the dress Betty Hill was wearing as she was abducted by aliens. The gang discusses their own ill-advised adventures in hypnosis, Greg lays out a government conspiracy, and Connor learns that the answers to life’s mysteries are found in Super Mario 64.”

 


Audio-Of-The-Week

The scary sound of Earth’s magnetic field

“Despite being essential to life on Earth, the magnetic field isn’t something we can actually see in itself, or ever hear. But, remarkably, scientists at the Technical University of Denmark have taken magnetic signals measured by ESA’s Swarm satellite mission and converted them into sound – and for something that protects us, the result is pretty scary.”

Book-Of-The-Week

The Tujunga Canyon Contacts by Ann Druffel and D. Scott Rogo

   

Tujunga Canyon Contacts: Revisited, Reconsidered by ProfessorWHAM

“…tells the true stories of five young women “abductees” who lived in and near Tujunga Canyon, northeast of Los Angeles, and who were all linked by more or less intimate personal relationships. The abductions and related events, which took place over a period of more than two decades, were first investigated by UFO researcher Ann Druffel for five full years, and later by Druffel and parapsychologist D. Scott Rogo together. Many of the abduction details first revealed in the Tujunga Canyon case have been confirmed in the hundreds of cases that followed it. First published during the peak of the 20th century’s UFO abduction epidemic, THE TUJUNGA CANYON CONTACTS was only the second book written about so-called “alien abductions.” This edition of the classic work contains the two new chapters prepared for the updated version of the book. During this updating of the story, Druffel first realized that abduction scenarios can be fended off by strongwilled, confident experiencers, since three of the five young women intuitively discovered, and used, various “resistance techniques” to fend off, and eventually end, the harrowing attacks.”

First Anomaly Adventure Club Meeting – February 8th, 3-5pm

“Bring ‘em Back Amused. The Tale of Frank Buck and his Monkey Mountain.”

There beats in the hearts of many the yearning for adventure, and so, in 1911, to satisfy that need “Adventure!” magazine was created. It was filled with thrilling tales of travel, intrigue, and exotic occurrences.

It spawned a club of like-minded people who gathered to revel in the idea of adventure and all its tantalizing trappings — the Adventurer’s Club. Adventurers gathered every month to share stories of excitement and glory. Many interesting people have crossed the Club’s threshold, and it is high time that their stories be shared with a wider audience.

One of these adventurers was once a household word and an American celebrity whose very name was a byword for all things exotic and thrilling. This was Frank Buck of Gainesville, Texas, an animal collector who cared so deeply about the animals he rounded up for zoos that his motto was, “Bring ‘em back alive.” His passion for animals led him to fame and fortune, movies and mayhem. The things he managed to do and experience in his lifetime will both astonish and amuse.

To find out more about this long-lost yet fascinating character from the recent past , please join us for “Bring ‘em Back Amused. The Tale of Frank Buck and his Monkey Mountain.”

The Anomaly Archives Adventurer’s Club meeting will be held from 3pm to 5 pm on Saturday, February 8th, 2020.

Book Of The Week

Inside the Black Vault: 
The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed

by John Greenewald Jr.

“In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the age of fifteen. He targeted such agencies as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others.

Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to more than two million pages of documents. This archive includes information relating to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. He took the millions of pages, and over the course of more than two decades, has built an archive known around the world, as The Black Vault.

Inside The Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed takes you on a journey within the secret world of unidentified aerial phenomenon that has plagued the military since at least the 1940s. Declassified records prove that the UFO topic is one of the most highly classified and most elusive subjects the U.S. Government has ever dealt with. Each chapter explores various agencies and their documents, and Greenewald breaks down the meaning of why some of the most important documents are relevant to proving a massive cover-up.

Along with declassified documents, Greenewald outlines the struggle it took him to get them. No other topic has proven so difficult, in more than 8,000 FOIA requests that he has filed. He explores why that might be and meets skeptics and debunkers head on, outlining why some of their more prominent rebuttals for it all cannot be true.”

The Anomaly Archives will soon be announcing the dates and times for a new recurring monthly Meetup series.

Book Of The Week

Wonders in the Sky:
Unexplained Aerial Phenomena From Antiquity to Modern Times

by Jacques Vallee &  Chris Aubeck

One of the most ambitious works of paranormal investigation of our time, here is an unprecedented compendium of pre-twentieth-century UFO accounts, written with rigor and color by two of today’s leading investigators of unexplained phenomena.

In the past century, individuals, newspapers, and military agencies have recorded thousands of UFO incidents, giving rise to much speculation about flying saucers, visitors from other planets, and alien abductions. Yet the extraterrestrial phenomenon did not begin in the present era. Far from it. The authors of Wonders in the Sky reveal a thread of vividly rendered-and sometimes strikingly similar- reports of mysterious aerial phenomena from antiquity through the modern age. These accounts often share definite physical features- such as the heat felt and described by witnesses-that have not changed much over the centuries. Indeed, such similarities between ancient and modern sightings are the rule rather than the exception.

In Wonders in the Sky, respected researchers Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck examine more than 500 selected reports of sightings from biblical-age antiquity through the year 1879-the point at which the Industrial Revolution deeply changed the nature of human society, and the skies began to open to airplanes, dirigibles, rockets, and other opportunities for misinterpretation represented by military prototypes. Using vivid and engaging case studies, and more than seventy-five illustrations, they reveal that unidentified flying objects have had a major impact not only on popular culture but on our history, on our religion, and on the models of the world humanity has formed from deepest antiquity.

Sure to become a classic among UFO enthusiasts and other followers of unexplained phenomena, Wonders in the Sky is the most ambitious, broad-reaching, and intelligent analysis ever written on premodern aerial mysteries.”
