Let’s peek at the evidence:

We all know that encountering aliens or ufonauts, grays, whatever you might want to call them, is weird and unsettling enough, but when those aliens you encounter are naked, now that’s beyond high-strange and a bit pornographic. Let’s look at some cases:

One of the first cases on record comes from the famous or infamous 1897 airship wave:

Location. Near Springfield, Missouri
Date: April 16, 1897
Time: daytime

W. H. Hopkins, 50, was in the hills east of Springfield when he discovered in a valley “a vessel similar to the airship shown in the newspaper a few days ago,” resting on four legs and with two horizontal and one vertical propeller wheels. It was about 20 ft long and 8 ft wide, with the propellers about 6 ft in diameter. Near it was a beautiful girl with long blond hair, rather under medium size, wearing nothing but a band of jewels around her forehead. She was picking flowers “with exclamations of delight in a language I could not understand,” and fanning herself with a fan, though to Hopkins the air was not warm. In the shade of the vessel lay “a man of noble proportions and majestic countenance,” with dark auburn shoulder length hair and a full beard, likewise naked and fanning himself. When the woman became aware of Hopkins, she rushed to the man with a shriek of fear. Hopkins uttered words of apology, which were not understood, and held out his hand, to which the man responded in kind. He asked them by signs where they came from. They pointed upwards and pronounced a word that sounded like ‘Mars.” The man showed him the ship, which was illuminated by a luminous ball and contained a luxurious couch and robes. Rotating balls of metal activated the propellers and also the lights; “as they revolved, intense lights, stronger than any arc light I ever saw, shone out red and green at the sides and intense white at the prow.” The couple looked at his gray hair with surprise & examined his watch with wonder, then activated the propellers; “The vessel rose as lightly as a bird and shot away like an arrow.” Hopkins’s friends and business associates called him perfectly reliable.

Newspaper hoax or not, an amazing story indeed.

Our next case is a beautiful yarn told by one Samuel Eaton Thompson back in 1950:

Location. Between Morton & Mineral, Washington
Date: March 28, 1950
Time: daytime

Samuel Eaton Thompson (from Centralia) left Markham, to head back home. On the way he drove through a forested area and decided to stop. As an amateur explorer, he couldn’t resist the temptation to follow an old logging trail to see where it led. He backed his car along the trail, got out and preceded on foot. A few minutes later he came upon a sight that he would later describe as “something unheard of.”

The something unheard-of was not the big globe-shaped craft that hovered just above a clearing in the trees. After all, that was a classic flying saucer---especially with the rim that surrounded the object’s midsection---and plenty of people had reported those. Thompson was naturally surprised to see it but he was more startled to see the people---the naked people. They were playing on the steps that led from a door in the side of the ship to the ground. They were “about the size of an average child, only they had finer features. They were just beautiful.” They had dark tans and lovely dark blond hair that came all the way to their waists. Thompson wasn’t frightened, just “so excited I didn’t know what to do.” He approached the ship and when he got to within 50 feet he began to feel heat emanating from it. Thompson would learn later that this heat not only was used in the propulsion of the craft but also kept its occupants alive. The heat felt like rays from the sun, which accounted for the children’s tanned skin, Thompson thought.

When he got to the bottom of the steps, adults---unclothed, tanned, beautiful men and women---came to the door and stood on the steps watching him as if they were frightened. When he assured them he meant no harm, they invited him into the ship, where Thompson would spend most of the next 40 hours. They told him to take off his shoes and socks before walking up the steps. The people were from Venus. They spoke an “uneducated” kind of English. They were oddly ignorant: yet they “seemed the happiest and cheer fullest people you ever met.” Even the children were gentle in their play---“no roughness or tumbling and stuff like that”---and did not have to be told how to behave or think. The Venusians were totally benevolent. “Their idea’s not to destroy people.” Thompson said, “It’s to make good will among people.” Yet Earth people frightened them because on several occasions earthly aircraft had shot down their spaceships. The Earth people’s problems stem from the fact that they are born under different planet signs, whereas all the Venusians are born under the sign of Venus; the peace loving people who live on the other worlds in the solar system are also born under the sign of the planet they inhabit.

The Venusians, Thompson observed, live long lives because they eat right, eschewing meat for grits, herbs, artichokes, apples and nuts such as “grown in Minnesota and them places.” Thompson thought the Venusians are something like ‘animals’ at least in the sense that everything they do is instinctual. They knew remarkably little, even about themselves. They do not know who built their ships (which serve as their dwelling places even when they are home on Venus) and have only a vague idea of how they are powered. As Thompson understood it, the propulsion has something to do with streams of hot air shooting through jets; the heat cast off by this poorly-defined process also heats the interior of the ship, which is at 80 degrees temperature. Each ship has four sets of controls which consist of little more than levers to make the craft ascend, descend, accelerate or decelerate. They are so simple that anybody can operate them. They have no sense of time; in fact, the whole concept of time is foreign. Yet, according to Thompson, “They’re really smarter than we think they are. They’ve got a gift that is so much greater than ours that there is no comparison.”

The Venusians told Thompson that they hoped to contact other Earth people one at a time. Through this slow process they eventually will establish peace on this planet. Their efforts will culminate in Christ’s return in A. D. 10,000. According to Thompson there were a number of rooms inside the ‘spaceship.’ These rooms, most of them brightly illuminated as if by sunlight, were square in shape. Those in the lower part of the craft were transparent all around the ship, enabling the viewer to see out in any direction. One room served as a place to shower. As Thompson put it, you just walk into this room and it rains in there just the same as it rains outdoors.

…They draw in the moisture from the air…and that’s where you’ll get your bath…And then in the room where they keep the fruit and stuff like that---it’s a cool room, a certain temperature. In another room where they sleep, it’s rather dark but not totally dark. You just go in there and you can lie down on the seats or on the floor or anywhere…and go to sleep.” Thompson slept overnight on one of the seats in the spaceship’s “bedroom.” Thompson and the Venusians parted company on March 30, a Thursday, two days after he had come upon their ship in the clearing. They told him he could contact them any time he wanted but ‘he had to keep certain information to himself.”

What to make of such an incredible tale? Be your own judge.

Our next report is equally incredible and it comes from that enchanted Isle of Puerto Rico:

Location: Pico del Este, El Yunque, Puerto Rico
Date: June 1970
Time: afternoon

National Guard member Raul Costa del Moral and several friends, also National Guardsmen, had decided to camp and trek in the area near the Rio Blanco ravine. One afternoon, all the men wearing knapsacks and military fatigues began trekking up the Rio Blanco ravine. They soon arrived at an area that was completely blocked by heavy spiny growth. Using their machetes and with much difficulty they were able to cut a hole through the maze of spines and brush. They then came upon two natural pools of water, one larger than the other. They were stunned by the beauty of the area. Next to the smaller pool of water stood a group of children, both boys and girls, described as ‘beautiful’ with pale skin, blue eyes and long shoulder-length blond hair. Incredibly, they were all nude. To the right of the children there was a group of adults, about 35 of them, also nude, both men and women, very slim, with long light colored shoulder-length hair and beautiful blue eyes. The group of National Guardsmen were extremely surprised to find anybody in the area, especially such a bizarre group. The group of nude adults also stared at the witnesses who were armed with machetes. The group of adults, which appeared to be about 30-years of age (all of them) gathered together still staring at the men. The children remained in the group next to the smaller pool on the left side. The strangers remained still, staring at the witnesses and at the children at times. Raul thought that the nude adults were trying to conceal something behind them, something on the side of the mountain. Raul thought it could had been some kind of ship, which the men were unable to see clearly. The adults were staring at the witnesses machetes and for several minutes the witnesses nor the strangers moved and spoke a word. The guardsmen then put their machetes away and began to walk slowly towards the strange group who stared intently at the men. The guardsmen then decided to continue their upward trek to the summit, leaving the bizarre group behind. They camped near the summit and two days later returned down the same path they had taken to go up the mountain. Upon reaching the location where they had seen the group of nude adults and children they were of course no longer there. Raul was perplexed as he could see no way the group could have reached the area alone - especially with a large group of children, and nude! Raul guessed that the strange group belonged to some kind of hidden subterranean civilization in El Yunque, and was later convinced that the adult men and women were concealing a possible hidden entrance to the mountain.

Our next triple X tale comes from Australia and a little known abduction report, and it occurred on the same year as the Puerto Rican case:

Location: Near Oberon, New South Wales, Australia
Date: June 1970
Time: 10:00 a.m.

Geology student Jack Davey was riding his motorcycle out to Jenolan Caves when he decided to continue on out to Kanangra Walls. The time was around 10 a.m. when he reached the dirt road near the Oberon turnoff, where, as he traveled along the road among the gum trees, he was overcome by a bright silvery glow that lit up the road ahead of him as he drove into it. The weather had turned ‘dull’ not long before this, so that the glow was strong enough to light up the forest. It came from directly overhead. He was still on his bike at the moment he entered the glow. Now he found himself ‘floating’ swiftly up into a large object that appeared circular and then a ‘floor’ closed beneath him and he found himself inside a glowing light blue room.

The silvery glow had been bright, but not blinding. The day had been cold but now he felt neither cold nor hot. The room was flat but hexagonal with a domed ceiling. It was 50 ft (15m) across and 12 ft (3.66m) high. He felt terrified, but then “felt” a voice telling him that all was well and he began to feel relaxed. Then a section of the wall slid silently open and three beings about 6 ft tall, greyish-blue and typically “alien” in appearance approached him. They led him into another large room where everything was of the same light bluish color, and all kinds of weird apparatus around. He was prodded and poked by the beings. All were naked, all were males with similar sex organs as us. Their mouths were small, similar-looking teeth, noses like us, and large doe-like eyes. There was a large metallic oblong ‘block’ in the room’s center and having been made to remove his clothes he was ‘told’ telepathically, to lie in a body-shaped depression on it. Having done so he felt ‘magnetized’ and ‘glued’ to the metal. He was left alone and shortly afterwards just ‘passed out’.

He doesn’t know how long he was unconscious, but he woke up with a large number of these males around him. Two held his clothes, shoes and all. He arose and got dressed as all watched. Then he was ushered with them through an opened wall, along a brightly lit passageway and into a large tubular walkway of about 20 ft wide. They had apparently left the craft and soon they all entered the hall via the roof of this great building. He saw a great many males and females of these beings, standing about and could ‘hear’ their telepathic chatter. He entered a great open, stone-paved plaza, domed glass-like metallic squares, and other shapes, even pyramidal buildings around it. Hundreds of these grey-blue and other colored beings were around him watching as he was led by two of the crewmen. Jack related that a kind of press-button evaporation system in a toilet bowl similar to ours, but made of a kind of crystal-metallic substance was used as the toilet facilities.

He was placed in a house-sized, green colored building, dome shaped; oddly shaped furniture, a soft rubbery substance coating that appeared to be a bed in shape, and there his two companions left him alone, but not before he was shown large round and other shaped fruit-like vegetables and drinks of different colors, in containers somewhat like plastic jars and bottles. One of the beings ‘told’ him telepathically how to eat and drink these foods. In all the time he was there, he never saw the beings eating anything resembling meat. All the time he had been awake since his arrival that first day, he asked “Where am I? Where have you taken me?” and who were they? They gave no answer and it was then he realized he could “think” the questions and began receiving answers. He was flown in an oval-shaped hover-craft type vehicle along a metallic road and shown what he was told was another world located in another ‘time period’, and on a higher vibration to that from which he had come.

He saw narrow waterways and a couple of wide rivers that wound their way into an open countryside of green and other colored grass-like plants. He saw enormous trees perhaps 400 ft (120m) or more in height---forests of them. Blooming yellow and other flower plants of great size on the hills and along the roads. The atmosphere was a greenish-blue pale color and a great Sun---larger than ours---was high in the clear sky. The temperature was neither very hot nor cold. Jack suddenly stopped on a hilltop that overlooked an ocean. Strange watercraft were to be seen. The two naked beings ‘informed’ him that the water was drinkable. He was afterwards returned to his ‘home’ and left alone, with the promise that he would be picked up again and shown around the next day. The sun set and total darkness fell. He soon fell asleep. He knew that he could do nothing but follow their directions. He could not find out how long he slept when he was woken by these two ‘keepers’. He began begging to be taken home, but was ‘told’ that they had no advice on this as yet. Led to the city center he was introduced to a male and female pair in a glass-like building, sat in a soft couch-like rubbery seat, and informed that he had been taken at random for study; that this had been carried out on him even when he was alone in his dwelling, and also while he slept, via some unrevealed means. The beings all had names, he was told, and that they were ruled by a leadership, and that theirs was not the only race on this gigantic planet, which he was informed was four times the size of ours. Beyond their land were others containing six different races of similar appearance to them.

He tried to ask questions, even the names of the male and female with whom he had been left. Instead they led him to a kind of lift which conveyed them to a wide, round room all of metal at least 150 ft (45m) in width and about 20 ft (6.1m) high, in the midst of which was a door-size metal frame. He was motioned to pass through this, and as he did he entered a whole new dimension, and in a kind of living “movie” was witness to scenes of the other lands and their inhabitants, and often weird animal life that passed before him. He stepped back through the ‘door’ and as he did so, the scene behind him vanished. He had already observed that the males of these beings stood from 5 to 6 ft tall and that the females, more slender, averaged up to 5 ft. The female beings afterwards told him many things about the advanced cultures of their planet, which he was now informed was called by them “Rixzicron”. It also turned out that his brain had been “tapped” and his memory bank studied. They knew all about his life. He was told by the male being that his own race (humans) was still at a very low stage of evolution, compared with the races that inhabited Rixzicron. However, he was now to be put into a trance state and certain information of this planet and other worlds in space implanted in his mind. Before he lost consciousness he was informed that the inhabitants of this planet were “Ultra beings” at the very peak of evolution, and that when he came to he would possess ‘higher knowledge’.

He woke up on the roadside lying beside his motorcycle. Somewhat dazed, it took him a moment to recall the weird experience he had just had. He looked at his watch to see that the time was 9:30 a.m. How he had returned and how he had woken up half an hour before he had been captured by the “spacecraft” he will never understand. He realized that he was alone, no other vehicles around, and none had apparently passed during his “absence”. He started his bike and returned home as soon as he could. He told the rest of his family, but no one believed him. Yet he suddenly realized he could remember the ‘information’ implanted in his mind while in the trance state. According to the source, in 1973 Jack Davey suffered a breakdown as the result of his experience, and later he left Australia with his family. A lot of the information imparted to him he kept secret and never told anyone.

The next and last case I will be presenting comes from Italy, in the year 1995:

Location: Near Pasiano, Italy
Date: May 19, 1995
Time: 23:15

A professional stopped his car to watch a metallic top shaped craft with a transparent section hovering over the road. Inside he was able to see up to 25 apparently naked smiling humanoids standing around. These were about 4-foot tall with large elongated heads, topped with short-cropped dark hair. The humanoids appeared to be smiling and had normal looking eyes and noses, and large pointed ears. They had long dangling arms with large hands. The craft took off after a few minutes, and that same evening witnesses watched moving lights in the sky in the same area.

All very strange. Intelligent beings from other realms, planets, dimensions, etc., visiting Earth and leaving their clothing behind? It seems, especially in the Australian case, that being nude appeared to have been their natural state. Perhaps these visitors didn’t develop a sense of shame or embarrassment walking around in the nude.

Till next time, with more bizarre stuff.
