Chapter Title: “Mystics,
Venusians and Hoaxes”
Curious incidents have been reported,
both in the United States and in the North Pacific, between 1950 and 1953.
These may import that some flying saucers which have no human or humanoid or
any kind of entity aboard may have been engaged in some kind of exploration
or reconnaissance. For example:
Was a satellite disc—a flying saucer
with no entities on board, and possibly controlled from some unseen
space-ship—rammed and sunk by a specially equipped American plane in late
April or May 1953?
It looks like it, and the affair
occurred in the waters of the North Pacific off Tinian, one of the Marianas
Islands formerly mandated to Japan. On this island, it may be noted, are
mysterious ruins of colossal, columned tombs which may be the monuments of
one of the colonies of the lost and very ancient Pacific continent of Mu.
"In the last weeks (late April 1953), our ships and
aircraft have sighted numerous flying objects of unknown origin. Their flight
courses were plotted and permit conclusions about their take-off and landing
bases. Near the island of Tinian, one of these projectiles was rammed by a specially equipped airplane
and sunk in the sea." (Report
of the Chief of the U.S. Defense HQ., D., Tokyo, May 9, 1953.)
Tinian has an up-to-date military
airfield from which flew the atomic bomb-carrier planes sent against Japan in
1945. Although a passage in the above report might seem to imply that these
objects were terrestrial in origin, it seems pretty clear that the American
authorities were forced to conclude that they were, in fact, a type of
