The 1897 Aurora, Texas, UFO Crash & the ‘Alien’ Buried in the Cemetery


When you hear the phrase “UFO crash,” you probably think of Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, but did you know that 50 years earlier, a mysterious airship allegedly crashed in Aurora, Texas? Not only that, but The Dallas Morning News claimed that the airship pilot, who was killed in the crash, was “not an inhabitant of this world.” The body of the pilot was buried in the local cemetery. You might dismiss it all as a Texas-size tall tale, but in the 1970s, reporter Jim Marrs managed to track down and interview a living eyewitness to the Aurora airship. Was this little Texas town, located about 20 miles northwest of Dallas, the site of an other-worldly encounter?

Between 1896 and 1897, dozens of reports of strange, cigar-shaped airships were reportedly witnessed across the country. The sightings began in California and headed east. The most dramatic of all these reports appeared in the April 17, 1897 edition of The Dallas Morning News. An article by Aurora resident S. E. Haydon claimed that near dawn two days earlier, an airship crashed into Judge J. S. Proctor’s windmill in Aurora.

“…the early risers of Aurora were astonished at the sudden appearance of the airship which had been sailing throughout the country,” Haydon wrote. “Evidently some of the machinery was out of order, for it was making a speed of only ten or twelve miles an hour and gradually settling toward the earth. It sailed over the public square and when it reached the north part of town collided with Judge Proctor’s windmill and went to pieces with a terrific explosion, scattering debris over several acres of ground, wrecking the windmill and water tank and destroying the judge’s flower garden.” Haydon wrote of the corpse: “…while his remains are badly disfigured enough of the original has been picked up to show that he was not an inhabitant of this world.”

Papers written in a strange form of hieroglyphics were discovered on the body. According to Haydon, the ship was “built of an unknown metal, resembling somewhat a mixture of aluminum and silver, and it must have weighed several tons.” People from Aurora and the surrounding countryside gathered to view the debris, and a funeral for the dead pilot was held the next day.

The similarities between the Aurora crash and modern UFO cases are difficult to dismiss as mere coincidence. Largely forgotten for decades, the Aurora case came into the public eye in the 1970s. In 1973, reporter Jim Marrs interviewed 83-year-old Charlie C. Stephens, who was at first reluctant to “get involved.” After some “neighborly conversation,” Marrs finally persuaded Stephens to reveal what he saw as a 10-year-old boy that April morning in 1897. That morning Charlie and his dad were working with cattle when they spotted the cigar-shaped craft passing low overhead with a bright light. They watched it move toward Aurora, then heard an explosion. Fire shone in the northern sky. “I wanted to go immediately and see what happened,” Stephens told Marrs, “but my daddy said we had to finish our chores.” The following day, Stephens’ father rode into town and viewed the airship debris.

Jim Marrs visited the Aurora Cemetery in 1973 and saw what was believed to be the pilot’s grave, marked by a “crude rock headstone” that was half-broken. On the remaining half, a design was etched that resembled “one end of a saucer-shaped structure” with small circles that appeared to be portholes. The grave itself wasn’t full-size but appeared to belong to either a child or a very small person. Fellow journalist Bill Case had used a metal detector over the grave and believed it contained “at least three large pieces of metal.” Later, Case returned to the grave site with his metal detector and discovered that the signal was gone. A metal pipe had been inserted into the ground—someone had apparently removed the metal pieces from the grave.

In the 1970s, the grave marker was stolen, and the exact location of the pilot’s grave was lost. In recent years, Ground-penetrating radar has been used to discover an unmarked grave in the area where the pilot was believed to have been buried. Nonetheless, the Aurora Cemetery Association has been steadfast in its refusal to grant researchers the right to exhume the grave.

Was the pilot of the airship an alien, an interdimensional visitor, a badly-burned human, or just a belated April Fool’s prank? In 2004, Michael Busby published his extremely well-researched nonfiction book “Solving the 1897 Airship Mystery.” Busby’s book proposed that, rather than ETs, humans were behind the great airship sightings of 1897. The book examines theories about a secret society of airship builders, based in California in the 19th century, known as the “Sonora Aero Club.” The existence of this aero club only came to light when strange, beautiful drawings of airships were discovered in a Houston antique store in the 1960s. The story of Charles August Albert Dellschau, the artist who drew these airships and who claimed to have been a member of the aero club, is a fascinating tale in itself.

Whether you believe the Aurora airship was a tall tale or a compelling case of a real-life UFO crash, one thing is for sure: the Lone Star State is the home of legends that are larger than life.

Evolution upside down: did aliens leave Earth 20,000 years ago and are they our ancestors?

People who claim to have had contact with extraterrestrials often report that they have gained insight into the future of Earth from foreign visitors. They presented holographic images of our planet and explained that the future was variable because there are different timelines.

Let’s start with the possibility that the foreign visitors actually once lived on earth in the bygone days, we would be in some ways their descendants and the foreign visitors our ancestors, who are concerned about the development on earth, because the Earth, in a sense, also belongs to them or has once heard.

Phenomena such as time travel, incarnation and extraterrestrials are still three great puzzles of our present, which we can not clarify only because we still lack the necessary higher consciousness. From Frank Schwede.

So if you are looking for answers, you should first start with yourself and find out who he is and make a journey to your own self, because this kind of journey is a journey through the history of the universe and to the origin of the earth.

The necessary information can be found in our subconscious, in our soul DNA, which we have access to under hypnosis. But also often occurring in repetition dreams, which lead us to certain places, can be clues from the past.

Possibly even to places where we once existed in previous lives, these places may well be on other planets.

Many scientists and authors have long been assuming that extraterrestrial visitors have no chance interest in our earth, but rather, as I do in my many books on the subject, from the assumption that it is a very close, if not even a direct relationship between the star people.

Even the novel The Thirteenth Guardian of the US author KM Lewis is about these so-called Starpeople, who have already left the earth in the distant past, but I doubt that they have ever really left the earth, rather, I believe that many starry people still living in secret bases in the midst of us, because they too are human beings, like us.

Debunking the “FOIA Exempt” Myth in Under 17 Minutes

In the UFO field, a growing excuse for the lack of official evidence on AATIP and UAPs is that it is all “Exempt from FOIA” or simply “FOIA Exempt.”

But that isn’t quite true. In fact, it’s not even close to being accurate, at least in the way it is being portrayed.

Here is a breakdown, with sourced information, on why this is all not what it seems.

Zecharia Sitchin and Origin of the Species, From an Alien View

The distant past is shrouded in mystery. What paranormal secrets lie hidden at the dawn of time – gods, mankind’s development, perhaps even extraterrestrial activity? Zecharia Sitchin combined all three in his proposed explanation for human origins – an explanation supported by ancient Sumerian myths and writings.

Zecharia Sitchin was born in Azerbaijan, was raised in Palestine, received an economics degree from the University of London, was an editor and journalist in Israel, and finally moved to New York, where he worked as an executive for a shipping company.

His cosmopolitan background gave him a wider mindset and more accepting views on many things than those who had never traveled far. In addition to his work, his interests varied greatly; he developed an interest in history after teaching himself Sumerian cuneiform and visiting several archaeological sites.

From his studies of Sumerian myths and cuneiform, he developed startling and original ideas on humanity’s origins, ideas which he shared in his book “The 12th Planet” and which he further developed in sequels.

Sitchin’s hypotheses relied on a basis of extraterrestial intervention to significantly affect ancient human history. Sitchin based his ideas on Babylonian cosmology and creation myths in which a god triumphed over a goddess to create the world; gods who had followed the goddess were forced to labor for the rest, until the god who had triumphed killed the goddess’ husband and used his blood to create mankind to do the work for the gods.

Sitchin started with ancient Mesopotamian records which indicated knowledge of a planet beyond Neptune that follows a long, elliptical orbit, only reaching the inner solar system every 3600 years.

By combining his knowledge of Babylonian cosmology and creation myths, Sitchin surmised that the creation myths arose out of that planet, which collided with a planet that was once located between Mars and Jupiter (symbolized by the conflict between the god and goddess); this collision formed the Earth, the asteroid belt, and comets.

However, Sitchin stated that there was much more at stake than simple origin myths. He claimed that the planet beyond Neptune was home to an advanced extra-terrestrial race, referenced in Sumerian myth as the Anunnaki.

Sitchin estimates that the Anunnaki first arrived on Earth approximately 450,000 years ago, as a colonial expedition that was looking for minerals and gold, which they mined in Africa. However, they were dissatisfied over their working conditions, and soon mutinied.

According to Sitchin’s interpretation of Sumerian mythology, this is what led to humanity’s creation. When the Anunnaki became dissatisfied with their working conditions, they genetically engineered the first humans out of a cross of Homo erectus genes and extraterrestrial genes.

The result, Homo sapiens, worked as slaves in the gold mines, and revered the Anunnaki as their gods and creators. As humanity expanded and civilization began to arise in Sumer (in what is now modern-day Iraq), it was under the guidance of these “gods.” The rule of monarchy was instituted to provide intermediaries between humanity and the “gods” – the start of the “divine right of kings” doctrine.

It is unknown what exactly led to the city’s fall; ancient records describe it only as an “evil wind.” Sitchin hypothesized that this “evil wind” was in fact nuclear fallout as a result of war between Anunnaki factions.

Despite the popularity of Sitchin’s theories, some skepticism remains. One major area of criticism is based on Sitchin’s master of the Sumerian language. When he taught himself cuneiform and began translation ancient records, there were very few who could read the Sumerian language.

However, recent developments have led to greater lexicons which are more widely available; based on such texts, others have claimed that there are inaccuracies in Sitcin’s interpretations.

Critics have also claimed that he takes quotes out of context, or truncates quotes in order to support his views and interpretations. “Evidence is presented selectively and contradictory evidence is ignored,” stated Professor Ronald Fritze, author of a book on pseudo-science, history, and religion.

In addition to challenging his interpretations, others have questioned Sitchin’s knowledge of the history of the Sumerian language; for example, Sitchin stated that all ancient languages stem from Sumerian.

In fact, according to Roger Wescott, Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics, Sumerian is known as a “language-isolate” – no clear relation to any known language or language-family. Thus, as an isolated language, there was no way ancient or modern languages could derive from it.

Sitchin’s interpretations of ancient Sumerian cosmology have also been met with skepticism. Sitchin interprets the ancient Sumerian texts to read that the civilization at the time had knowledge of twelve “planets” – the eight we are familiar with, plus the Sun and Moon, Pluto, and the last one being the planet outside of Neptune which enters the solar system on an elliptical orbit (the planet that Sitchin hypothesized was the origin of the extraterrestrials who created humanity).

However, others who have studied Sumerian texts, seals, and calendars, believe that the Sumerians knew of only five planets – thus precluding any knowledge of the planet which forms the basis for Sitchin’s hypotheses.

Sitchin’s interpretation of Sumerian mythology as based on a planetary collision, however, is somewhat more accepted. This “planetary collision” theory resembles a theory by modern astronomers, a theory in which the Moon was created due to a massive collision of a body with the Earth.

However, modern astronomical theories differ with Sitchin’s theories with regard to both details and timing; and astronomers contemplating the existence of the “Twelfth Planet” that Sitchin postulates existed, have come up with several reasons they believe its existence was unlikely.

Critics have stated that a planet existing on such an orbit, spending the majority of its time in deep space, would be unlikely to form an atmosphere conducive to the creation of human-like extraterrestrials. In addition to the problem of lack of light due to being in deep space, the planet would not have created a thick atmosphere to support life.

Although there are many objections and criticisms to Sitchin’s theories, his ideas retain a seductive allure. It is impossible to know what really happened at the dawn of time, and Sitchin’s hard work has revealed a possibility that may be supported by historical records.

Until more definite methods of proving or disproving his theories are developed, his ideas remain a tantalizing possibility that extraterrestrial life does exist and has interacted with humanity.
