Go Back Report # 1394



     In the following text, there is no “object” to view; however, we have learned that UFOs have the ability to encircle themselves in a mist or cloud-like formation for the purpose of camouflaging themselves.

     In Chapter 3 of my book UFOs and Water, I have shown that UFOs also can transfer energy from the upper craft to the lower craft, so why not transfer water as well?

     Since no craft was seen in this case, it could very well be what the author of the article stated: “in all probability…nothing more than an aerial shower.”


An Aerial Shower.


     A curious scene was observed Wednesday [18th] afternoon, which in all probability was nothing more than an aerial shower. It was a phenomenon rarely witnessed and attracted the attention of not a few. To a casual observer it had all the appearance of a huge cloud, chopped out square and cornered and was as deep as it was broad. With the aid of a strong magnifying glass, the writer was enabled to obtain a splendid view of the eccentric elementary formation and was rewarded for his trouble by witnessing an aerial shower, i.e., rain falling without touching the earth. Two clouds were plainly visible, one exactly above the other. Contrary to supposed common natural law, the rain cloud was above and the light, feathery or sponge cloud below. The attraction of the lower cloud drew the rain from the darker cloud above and a heavy shower poured for several minutes from the higher condensation. The cloud below caught every drop of water, and with its sponge-like maw absorbed the shining drops. For a time it was a most beautiful sight. The lower cloud, which acted as a magnet, attracted the surrounding light clouds, which appeared to come from all directions, hastening to aid in the work of cheating old grandma earth of a rain. The color of the basin-cloud changed rapidly and it expanded from a small, insignificant summer cloud to a massive dark rain-gatherer. In a few minutes the upper cloud had entirely disappeared, its contents having been totally absorbed. Through the glass, the aerial rainfall had all the appearance of a shower of pearls, the sun shining through the silvery sheen, and forming prismatic hues of a charming brilliancy. The cloud passed off to the southeast, gathering rain as it went. It was an exceptionally beautiful phenomenon.
