Dan Wilson talked about Newspaper Archives.Com; On January 13, 1972 there was an article with the headline Red Alert or Hoax about an event which took place inClovis,New Mexico and while the article appeared in newspapers in other states, not one paper inNew Mexico ran the material.  He also mentioned a website called UFO DNA.COM.

Aaron mentioned that he’s begun teaching the UFO class at Oberlin for the 12th session.

Sheryl Clark talked about her niece’s experience seeing the Phoenix Lights.  She had been on the opposite side of the mountain from the usual camera views which televised the reports of the story.  She is uncomfortable with the story because her religions is opposed to such theories but she says she knows what she saw and was at a direct level with the amber (not yellow as others reported) lights.  She said the triangle covered the whole city and was about a mile from one end to the other end; she was about the distance of the classroom we were in – roughly 15 or 20 feet from the craft; she could see the metal.  She was terrified and knew that they saw her and knew where she was going.  There was no noise.  It was eerily quiet.

Sharon Shriver related her experience from last night (February 18th).  She had been having difficulty sleeping.  She woke up at 2:30 a.m. hearing a loud hum.  While she saw nothing after looking outside, she was overcome by the sensation she felt thirty years ago when she saw a rectangular craft, from underside, felt heaviness, magnetism, inertia, terrified, couldn’t see, but sensed a presence on either side of her, a gentleness or restraining effort.  This feeling left her with the sense that the event of thirty years ago is not over.
