Although it was a fictional television show, a line delivered by one of the characters from “The X-Files”, when asked if there really were aliens among us, stated “Oh, they’ve been here for a long time”. While strange flying craft have been witnessed for millennium, these are still just sightings; they offer no concrete proof or even an artifact to speculate upon. But have there been objects found on our planet that could possibly be identified as being of an extraterrestrial nature?
In the early 1920′s a copper coin-like artifact was dredged up from a well digging at Lawn Ridge, Illinois. The strata this object came from was about 114 feet underground and the Illinois State Geological Survey confirmed that the surrounding deposits were from between 200,000 to 400,000 years old. A drawing of the “coin” was made before the actual artifact was sent to the Smithsonian Institute for safekeeping. Regrettably this object, as well as many other objects that do not fit the “official” version of history, has since vanished from the Smithsonian’s care and all that is left is the drawing made of it.
Depicted on the coin was the design of a large two legged figure with what appears to be a feathered headdress like attachment on its head holding a club of some sort over a prostrate figure at its feet. Around the edges were a number of markings that might pass for an alphabet of sorts. It is this “lettering” we wish to pay attention to.
Now we look at an incident from November of 1967 in which around 11:30 p.m. a pulsing light was seen to descend onto the Riverside Municipal Golf Course of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The witness to the event stated that he saw this from his residence about 1,500 feet from the golf course. He watched as the light descended and resolved itself into a “squashed globe”. The object at first radiated a reddish light but that the lights changed to a soft violet color and he heard it giving off a buzzing sound like an electrical transformer. He witnessed the craft fly over the Saskatchewan River and land. Then the lights from the craft went out and he saw that it shone a silverish color in the moonlight. After about five minutes the lights came back on and the craft leapt into the sky and was gone.
The next day, the gentleman went over to the course to see if he could find where the craft had landed. After a brief search he discovered a circle of mashed down grass in a circle about fifteen foot across. About 6 foot out from the circle of mashed grass were a number of holes about 4 inches in diameter each. As he was looking over the area he caught a glint of light off an object that, when he picked it up, was a piece of copper colored metal about 7 inches by 5 inches along the sides and about 1 millimeter thick.
On one side of this metallic plate were etched a number of lines of unidentifiable characters and a drawing that could be interpreted as possibly a small topographical map. A number of the symbols on this copper plate match some of the symbols on the coin unearthed in Illinois.
The third piece of this written puzzle comes from recent sightings of some extraordinarily bizarre shaped craft that have been spotted over the Appalachian hills. While there are not a lot of the characters that show in the photographs of this floating anomaly that are large enough to make out, all those that do show in this photograph of one of the “wings” can be identified as matching characters found on the ancient coin and the mysterious metal plate as well.
If this truly is the same script, written by the same beings in the same language, then these “extraterrestrials” have most definitely been here for a long, long time.
