ALIENS OF 1973
After a UFO landed in front of Paul Brown in October 1973 alien beings disembarked and approached him.
I have written extensively about the incredible wave of UFO sightings that inundated Georgia from late August through October of 1973. The sightings continually mutated, ending with the most spectacular encounters Georgia has even seen.
On October 18 Paul Brown, a preacher and car dealer was headed home near Danielsville on U.S. 29 listening to the World Series when suddenly his radio stopped working. “Everything lit up,” he said. “I could see the road and the fields lighted up all around me. My first impression was that it was a small airplane trying to land.”
The “plane” first paced his car, then quickly landed in front of Brown, forcing him to stop.
“I realized if I don’t stop I’m going to hit it. So I came to a screeching halt.”
The craft he saw was six feet high and fifteen feet in diameter. At that point a bright light was cast upon him, the round beam blinding him.
“I don’t know why I did it,” Brown said, “but I opened the car door and managed, frightened as I was, to get one foot on the ground.”
Suddenly, two beings appeared. “Where they came from I don’t know. I couldn’t see a flap, a drop door, or anything. When I finally got my vision clear I could see a clearance underneath, so it was not belly-landed; it had some kind of landing gear. And they came out, and they had on the most beautiful outfits I’ve ever seen-silver, blousy, come down to where your wrists are, then they had what appeared to be white gloves. Very tight around the neck, like something a priest would wear. Down to the feet, like a jumpsuit. It looked like if you pulled a gun and shot it, it would glance off, yet it moved. They could move, yet it looked like it was heavy, because of the way they walked, very slow. I estimated them to be four to five feet tall.
“They just started walking down the road toward me, very slow. I could see a face, you know, place where eyes would be, ears. The faces were reddish. Hair was almost like cotton, no discoloration, which leads me to believe maybe it was a mask of some kind. I never got close enough to really say-closest I ever got was 150, 200 feet away, which is not too far away when you’re there by yourself.”
Brown, who carried a pistol for protection, decided that it was time to employ that resource. When he produced the weapon, “they turn around, walk very slow back behind the shadow to the bright light. All of a sudden they disappear behind the light, and I try to see where they go, if they go in a hatch or what, but I couldn’t”
The aliens boarded, the lights were extinguished, and the craft “took off at an angle and made a sound I would describe as like a million fans,” or “like golf balls coming by my ear.” The experience “almost stood my hair on end.”
Brown immediately reported the incident and by daylight deputies found Brown’s skid marks and noted that roadside grass was “fan swept.”
That night near the coast an Effingham County woman saw two small, silver clad beings standing beside U.S. 17. Perhaps it was the same aliens making another call.
On the following day at 3:30 a motorist was driving on I-75 near Ashburn when her car suddenly and completely shut down. Stopped on the roadside, a “strange feeling” led her to look right, where she saw “a four-foot-tall metal man who appeared to be wearing a metallic pewter like outfit capped with a bubble or dome made of the same material-there were two openings for the eyes. The slits were rectangular.” The creature circled her car and disappeared six minutes later. A state trooper told the woman that several drivers had told him the same story, and three hours later her engine remained too hot to touch.
Within five hours a woman in Morgan County was followed by two fluorescent beams that changed color and shape. Panicked, she pulled into a driveway and burst into a house, whose startled residents also saw the object. By morning the woman’s face was burned, a condition that lasted a week.
The next incident involved a University of Georgia student with the unlikely name of Mars Walker. Early on October 20 he was studying in his Athens apartment when “a high-pitched, siren like sound” attracted his attention, followed by a “glow like a watch-dial” outside. He opened the door to find a round aerial object, with a diameter varying from ten to seventeen feet, slowly descending 50 yards away. The sound increased and a being began to coalesce inside the object, resulting in “a humanlike being standing erect” that resembled “a sea green opaque” hologram. The head was surrounded by tentacles, and the hands had fewer than five fingers. “The odd thing to me is how little attention it paid me, no interest in communicating with me or threatening me or any other activity, besides observing.” The creature reentered the UFO and it departed a half hour after arriving.
Near Loxley Clarence Patterson and his pickup were sucked into a giant cigar-shaped UFO. Robot-like creatures who could read his mind removed him from the truck and subjected him to a physical examination. Patterson passed out, and awoke to find himself speeding on a road at ninety mph.
When that episode was concluded, the aliens and their UFOs departed to spread mayhem and consternation around the world.
