- ‘Alien’ Actor Claims to Have Seen Aliens and UFOs
Paul Seaburn ~ mysteriousuniverse.org/2017/07
According to a new interview with Vice, the 77-year-old Kotto was well-prepared to play Parker, the chief engineer who eventually (spoiler alert – you REALLY haven’t seen the original Alien?) gets killed by the alien. He claims he’s been seeing 6-foot tall beings with “elongated heads” since he was nine and the visits, along with other strange experiences, occurred on a regular basis into adulthood.
“I’ve never talked to anyone about it man, this is the first time. I’ve only told my wife, my rabbi, and a psychologist. This is the first time I’m talking about it.”
“Every time I moved into a house, above it at some point, there would be a circle of what looked like smoke. I’d wonder where it came from because it sure as hell didn’t look like clouds. Those sightings continued for a good ten to 15 years. I’ve also had time loss. I have a big loss of time between some of these moments, and I’d often wonder if I was taken”
Kotto’s encounters weren’t limited to the U.S. – his most moving experience took place in the Philippines. It occurred after being told by his wife and others that they had seen a “a UFO as big as the Yankee Stadium turned upside down” followed by a circle of smoke.
“They were freaking out. Two or three nights later, I saw it. The thing blotted out the entire sky. The moon and everything, it was huge.”
Since Kotto says he’s never told anyone in the media before about his alien and UFO experiences, it didn’t play a part in helping get cast as Parker in Alien. However, it affected him during the shooting.
“Now, I’ll admit, there were things that I alone found on the set of Alien—the spaceship. That mechanism that Sigourney Weaver throws to put the Sulaco (fictional spacecraft) on automatic destruct. There were symbols there. Symbols that had nothing to do with the ship in the film and I kept finding these symbols. They were like Egyptian symbols and I started trying to decipher them, which I was able to do.”
Speaking of Sigourney Weaver, while it doesn’t come up in Kotto’s interview, the star of the movie said in an interview in 2011 that she believes in aliens too.
“I think there are extraterrestrial life forms in the cosmos. I think it’s more likely than not. The cosmos is a pretty big place.”
She also believes in conspiracies.
“I think there’s a department in our (the US) government which is exclusively dedicated to quashing reports about aliens. And that’s so unfair. It would be nice if we weren’t just able to read about it in the tabloids.”
Kotto feels the same way.
“The former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer came out and said America is playing around. He’s got some video tapes out there talking about a number of species that come here. He puts America down for not admitting the fact that aliens are a reality. That gave me a lot of comfort.”
Perhaps it’s time for Yaphet and Sigourney to get together again, this time to discuss real aliens.0 0 0 0
- Miss-identified Visitor from Beyond
The now infamous photograph taken innocently during a family picnic in 1964, which captured a mysterious spaceman figure has long been circulated throughout the ufology community and caused many arguments and heated discussions over its authenticity...well I believe it has finally been laid to rest in the ufology cemetery.
From my earliest memories of reading Ufo literature and cases, this case has always been there like an old aunt or uncle and with it not been 100% resolved always placed on the back burner so to speak.
Only now with the use of modern day computer software has it been possible to finally identify this mysterious spaceman figure as a simple miss-identification. Using up to date enhancement software it was possible to vastly enhance and upscale the detail of the figure and I believe it to be Annie Templeton who was the wife and mother of Jim and Elizabeth Templeton. The trio were picnicking on Burgh Marsh, a local beauty spot overlooking the Solway Firth in Cumbria, Northern England during 1964 and Jim at the time a keen amateur photographer had been taking pictures of his 5-year-old daughter Elizabeth.
Over years there has always been speculation regarding who was actually present at the location during the time the photograph had been taken. Jim then was a local fireman and since the event has sadly passed away, he told a BBC reporter at the time who had been reporting the story what happened next — “We sat down and I said, ‘Now I’ll get some photos of you with the new dress on’, never expecting this to happen”.
The figure Jim captured behind his daughter in the 2nd of 3 pictures he took did appear spaceman ‘like’ in appearance due to the bad image quality and overexposed lighting of photograph at the time giving the impression of a white space suit and helmet. As you would appreciate the photograph quickly became a sensation, as journalists would call ‘a great scoop’....and published in newspapers across the world. Kodak film experts quickly affirmed it genuine, which I agree but sadly not of a spaceman but only of a normal earthlings like you and me.
Enhancement of the original source image makes you realise instantly that this is not a spaceman but a woman (probably Annie Templeton) facing in the opposite direction, wearing a blue short sleeve dress or top with a large collar (a typical design of garment during the 1960’s). Also her long hair and arm bending forwards, even the two tones of colour, her arms (flesh) and dress/top (blue) are easily recognisable and distinguishable after the enhancement process.
There are other components associated with this case but are only speculative due to the lack of associated evidence.
Project Blue Streak
Shortly after Jim’s photograph was printed in the Australian tabloids, Jim said he was contacted by a technician who worked at a British rocket base in Woomera, Australia.
Woomera at the time housed a substantial top secret research and test facility for ‘the Blue Streak Missile’, which was part of the early British space program, still in its infancy.
The technician told Jim that a recent test launch of a rocket had to be abruptly aborted because of two unidentified large figures that had been observed close to the missile on the launchpad itself.
A subsequent detailed search revealed no trace of the unknown persons, but having seen Jim’s photograph in an Australian newspaper, the technician was stunned only because the figures he had seen appeared identical to the spaceman figure in Jim’s photograph.
Another interesting coincidence regarding
the Blue Streak rocket was it being tested and manufactured at RAF Spearedam, England which is only a few miles from where Jim had taken his famous spaceman image.
Important note, Nowhere in the thousands of recently declassified MOD UFO files is there any reference to sightings of mysterious figures at Woomera, and the closest test launch to the Solway encounter had been aborted due to bad weather, not spacemen.
Jim’s Explanation of Men in Black
After Jim’s photograph hit the press and tabloids worldwide, he said he was visited at work by two government officials who would only identify themselves as nine and eleven...?
The men were both wearing dark suits and ushered Jim into a Jaguar car, dark in colour. They appeared to be very unfamiliar with the area so instructed Jim to direct them to the location where he took his photograph.
On arrival at Burgh Marsh, the men repeatedly bombarded him with questions — what was the weather like, where there any other witnesses present, how were the local animals and wildlife behaving.
Jim told them all the details of his story, he stated, only him, his wife, and their daughter were present and none of them had seen the strange spaceman figure.
Nothing else seemed or appeared out of the ordinary, except perhaps the curious way local animals had huddled towards one side of the marsh.
It was at this point that Jim’s encounter with the mysterious men took on a more sinister turn of events. They apparently turned on him and accused him of making the whole thing up. After this unusual and disturbing interview the pair then returned to their car and drove off, leaving Jim stranded alone on the marsh.
This odd encounter, along with the reports from Woomera, added a lot of credence to the theory that the image Jim Templeton had unsuspectingly captured was that of an extraterrestrial visitor. One important note to add, Jim Templeton was already well known in Cumbria before his photograph became a national sensation. A keen historian and amateur photographer, Jim’s archive of local photographs was a well-used resource by the areas newspapers.
Just weeks before the appearance of the ‘spaceman’, Jim being a bit of a practical joker, had tricked close friends with a fake five-pound note he had made using his photographic skills.
Although Jim says he saw no figure when he took the photograph, his Contax Pentacon F SLR camera has a viewfinder that only covered approximately 70% of the photograph, which means he could conceivably have entirely missed his wife Annie straying into the top part of the image.
A lot of these important points need to be said but are speculative due to the lack of supporting evidence to prove or back them up.
This case will always have a special place in my ufology psyche, even if it didn’t stand the test of time...technology just caught up with it like most Ufo cases and I’m certain sadly more will fall foul too.
