Aliens and UFOs in the Old West

July 29, 2011

Aliens have always been part of Earth's history as: Creators, Scientists, Ascended Masters or Teachers, Watchers, or simply visitors from another time and/or place - whatever the Mythology of a program dictates.

Most people know that aliens were part of the Nazi Program, focused on Reality as a Biogenetic Experiment set in time linked with labs and time travel experiments.

The prior grid program takes us to the Old West, or Wild West, focused on gold and the moving of consciousness into a new age.

I did many remote views about that timeline - with friends who shared memories of events about who we were and what we did - long before we met in this timeline. As with the Nazi grid program which followed - and the Civil War Program that had just finished - the presence of alien visitors and UFO's was always there. It was mostly the Grays, but we saw others above and below in ships and in underground chambers, especially where people mined for gold in those years.

It's interesting that gold and aliens seem to overlap. In Sumerian Mythology - Reptilians created humans to mine for gold and allegedly will return one day. Gold is a physical metal but metaphorically represents the movement of consciousness in and out of realities.

A new film Cowboys and Aliens starring Harrison "Indiana Jones" Ford and Daniel "James Bond" Craig, opened today. The anachronistic sci-fi thriller tells the story of extraterrestrials who attack a small New Mexico town in search of - well, I won't give away any spoilers.

Cowboys and aliens? Why not? Many people believe that alien contact is nothing new, and that Earth has been visited for millennia. Some, such as best-selling Swiss author Erich von Daniken, have suggested (based on flawed evidence and logic) that aliens built the pyramids in Egypt. Others believe that the giant drawings in the Nazca desert of Peru, in South America, were created by (or for) extraterrestrials in space ships. In fact, there's good evidence that the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca Indians, probably as part of ceremonial rituals.

But what about sightings and reports of aliens in the Old West? Surprisingly, there actually are a few reports of extraterrestrial encounters in the 1800s. In those days folks didn't use terms like "UFO" or "flying saucer" (that phrase didn't appear until 1947), but instead referred to spacecraft as "airships."

Aliens and the Old West - Aurora Incident 1897

July 28, 2011 - the History Channel aired an episode about Aliens and the Old West looking at American Old West legends that may have involved ET contact. This included the reported sightings of fast moving flying objects long before the Wright Brothers flew their first plane.

The Aurora, Texas UFO Incident is quite fascinating and speaks of the crash of something and the burial of a mall body the six of a child, in the cemetery of this small town. There we find the story of a local cemetery that once claimed to hold a body from an 1897 UFO crash.

The Monster of Elizabeth Lake

There are at least ten different Elizabeth Lakes in California. This one is in LA County near Palmdale and is perhaps the oldest one in the state. Legend states that the Devil himself created the lake and placed one of his own pets inside it. If you swim deep enough, eventually you will find a secret passage direct to the underworld which isn't entirely far fetched, as the lake lies directly over the San Andres fault line. From this lake a horrible monster came to be.

Although there have been no reported sightings since the 1880's, there were a few from 1830 all the way up to 1886. The creature has been described as having bat wings, the neck of a giraffe, the head of a bulldog, six legs, a length of at least fifty feet, and emit a horrible nauseating stench. Several ranchers and owners of land around Elizabeth Lake abandoned or sold their property at losses to get away from the beast. Supposedly Spanish missionaries dubbed the lake Laguna del Diablo and Indian Legend also supports the rumors that the Devil created the lake.

The first sighting was by a Spaniard Don Pedro Carillo in the 1830's. He built a ranch on the shores of the lake, but one day a fire of unknown origin burnt every single structure down all in a single night. In the 1850's, American settlers tried to establish themselves near the lake, but screams at night, unnatural noises, visions, and other experiences that they would not relate drove them away from the fertile soils.

Then came Don Chico Lopez and Don Chico Vasquez. He established an entire ranch along the lake and for several months everything was fine. The monster did not show itself. Then the workers reported livestock and animals disappearing. This was followed by a giant winged shadow passing over the house each and every night. Soon the residents had multiple sightings of the beast. Bullets reportably bounced off the creature's hide. As ranch hands quit, and animals kept disappearing, the owners were forced to sell. The land was eventually sold and the ranch abandoned.

Miguel Leonis purchased the ranch next. Leonis was a Basque immigrant, a large and burly man who controlled a large amount of land throughout Southern California. He ruled over it like a dictator, and squatters were often severely dealt with through either lawsuits or armed force.

Several months after he purchased the ranch on Elizabeth Lake, the creature began eating his animals as well. But Leonis would not have it. He lay in wait for the beast and then savagely attacked it when it emerged at night. As bullets bounced off its tough hide, he engaged it closer, beating it with his rifle butt across the nose and then punching it in the eye. So taken back by the ferocity of the attack, that the creature retreated back to the lake, and there lay resting, healing its injured eye. Eventually, it fled from the lake heading east towards Arizona.

The tale, however, doesn't quite end there. The spawn of the Devil that inhabited Elizabeth Lake has also been linked to the area around Tombstone and the Thunderbird Photograph. The Thunderbird Photograph is a possible picture taken a very long time ago presumably in early 1890 of several cowboys and ranchers holding up what appears to be a pterodactyl. The beast was apparently seen flying in the area, and was lured by some ranchers into a trap in the Huachuca Mountains, west of Tombstone, where they killed the creature. Some stories link the monster of Elizabeth Lake to the old picture of the pterodactyl. The picture, of course, also has several stories surrounding it. Scholars aren't even sure if such a picture even exists let alone if it is authentic.

Regardless of if the creature fled to Arizona, and regardless of if it was killed west of Tombstone, since the day that Leonis beat up the Devil's pet, Elizabeth Lake has mostly been quiet. Speculation has long existed on if the monster did exist. Additionally if it did not exist, no one can draw a conclusion as to why several Spanish dons, American squatters, and wild west ranchers would go to such lengths to avoid such a fertile area.

If the Tombstone story is to be believed, the monster outlived it's attacker, Miguel Leonis, by only one year. Leonis eventually died in a strange wagon accident in 1889. As he wasn't very well liked, rumors of his murder spread afterwards. His and his wife's ghost still haunt the Leonis Adobe in Calabasas.

There are stories of cowboys shooting down a metallic bird near Tombstone, Arizona and similar incidents reported in other locations. Physical evidence never seems to exist ... always disappearing or being destroyed one way of another. It seems to be the nature of humans to bury and hide the true about things they fear so they won't come back to haunt them.
