Even though we are no longer doing field research, we still hear about strange objects and events and as we have stated before, we will share these on the Midnight Observer. The following sighting was sent to me on the morning of July 24th, 2014 via Facebook. The young lady that submitted the information to me also included drawings of what she saw. She was, at one time, involved in paranormal research herself. Following is the report as she sent it to us.

“ Okay, here is what happened to me last night on my way home from church bible study. I was driving in the country, and way out in a field I saw three lights, one smaller one on top and two below that were a bit bigger, kind of like a triangle shape.

At first I thought it was a combine, because they do farm in the dark at times. Then I realized the lights were way too far up to be a combine, they were above tree height. It got closer and it was coming quickly. I was afraid that this “whatever” thing was going to run over me.

I stopped my car, turned down the radio all the way, and it came across the road and across the next field really fast. There were no other lights, just those three in the front. From what I saw, when it went in front of me, there was a rounded top, down to two flat wings that went the entire side of whatever it was. It didn’t make much noise and I am not sure that the humming sound was the object or my car, from my radio or from the AC on my car, but it was so totally awesome!!!!

The lights disappeared after it shot past me. I tried to get to the end of the road, grab my phone at the same time and see if I could see it from the next road going west. I was going north at the time and the object went from east to west, probably took ten seconds if even that long to go from where I first saw it to where I lost sight of it.

I was on CC Hwy. just north of 10002. It was about 9:52 pm. I will try to post the pics of the drawings I made. They were terrible, but it’s the best I can do”

this is kinda what the lights looked like from the front across the field

the top one is what it looked like going by me and the bottom is what i could see as it approached me... hope this helps

If anyone else in the area saw something on the night of July 23rd, we would be interested in hearing about it.

I get irritated when I hear of someone hoaxing a UFO sighting or ET experience. It is an insult to those of us who have actually had an experience that has changed our outlook, our lives. We have to live each day with what we saw or what happened to us, knowing and wondering what else is going on that is hidden from us through secrecy, lies and screen memories. Lost time and the indications of unpleasant encounters such as we had on our tapes can haunt you for the rest of your life. Researching, searching, and researching more cannot always help you find the answers, but can, in fact, take you in directions that lead to more discoveries of the strange, dangerous, unknown, and paranormal.

Because of the skeptics, the intrusions in your life, the unknown but indicated and continuing events, life can be difficult to face and often times experiencers, contactees, and abductees find they have to continually defend themselves on their experiences. These are some of the reasons that UFO researchers and experiencers get downright angry when they hear of a hoax.

Normally a hoax is heard of after the fact, after researchers, investigators or curiosity seekers run across evidence that shows the incident or occurrence is not real.  There are those circumstances where the “real” experiencers have been accused of hoaxing, where people have gone out of their way to prove an experience or person as a hoax, when, in fact, they really did have something happen. Stories like the Gulf Breeze sightings, Travis Walton, Stan Romanek and, yes; even Betty and Barney Hill have had their problems with being accused of dishonesty in the retelling of their experiences.

Stan Romanek has been in the news lately with one clip showing him possibly trying to create odd events happening during an interview and the latest concerning accusations that he had child pornography in his possession. Of course he, his friends and wife point to set-ups by others, including accusing the government of putting things on their computer. The outcome to this may take a long time in coming.

Before I stray from the point of this article, let me get back to the reason I am irritated. I received an e-mail from a UFO group that I am a member of, with a link that takes you to a site/ forum where the members are hobbyists involved in remote controlled drones and rotor craft. According to the information, the owner of the site and several other members were conversing about the plans to stage a UFO sighting hoax in April around the world.

They originally planned it for the 1st of April, but as of the last time the site was accessible, they had changed it to April 5th. I went to the link the other day, after some others had heard and posted about this planned hoax, they have changed the front page, making the conversations on the forum inaccessible to non-members.

They claimed to have members worldwide that were going to take part in this hoax but the spread sheet that was included must have had a virus attached because my virus software refused to let me open it, saying it was dangerous. Of course this page with, the conversations planning this event is no longer viewable at the FPVLAB site anymore, however I was able to see that their list of members was over 19,000 and reading another article that was put up after I received the email, the author was able to discover other countries with members who were willing to participate.

As far as anyone knows, at this point now, there is a mass UFO sighting hoax planned for April 5th, with all of the remote craft that will be launched fitted with blue, led lighting. Supposedly it will take place at 8:00 PM around the world, since they believe that is a time when it will be dark, people will still be walking around and more likely to see the blue lights in the sky.

While the members of this hoax are portraying it as something they can joke about later, there are a few things that come to mind. Is it actually a joke or a way to disguise something else that is going to happen? Could they have planned this as a joke, but the initial person was instructed to bring this into development, hoping it would go viral so people wouldn’t be surprised to actually see something in the air, something that might not be their rotorcraft or drones at all, but something that is actually waiting to land unnoticed? Could this have been instigated to draw our attention away from something bigger?

I try not to point fingers or judge. I’ve had enough non-believers and skeptics in my life. I try to look at everything with an open mind, but when I see that something is an actual hoax, when the proof is shown, it irritates me, it makes all of us who believe there is something out there much less credible in the eyes of our friends, family and viewers.  This is the first time I have heard of an actual hoax being planned and if it isn’t a cover up for something bigger, it makes me downright angry.

Just one more note on here: If there are 19,010  members on this site that are willing to participate, how many friends, fellow hobbyist does each member have that might being willing to go along with this hoax, and if it isn’t to cover up something bigger, how much more attention will it draw from those above the earth that are definitely observing/interacting with us?

While some of these articles claim this author discovered the hoax, I have to add that I received the link in an e-mail days before any of these articles appeared and it kind of irks me that someone would use this information to add their advertisement to, trying to get people to buy their book.


We had promised that we would share any sighting reported to us, no matter how old they may be. I recently posted an article on https://themidnightobserver.wordpress.com of a recent sighting taken by a hunting camera. Although this person hasn’t seen anything strange before this, I don’t doubt that they will get more sightings. They are leaving the camera active and will alert us if they have anymore strange occurrences.

In the Mothman Prophecies, when Richard Gere is talking to an author of a book on the subject, the author mentions this to him as an explanation of why he is experiencing contact with the “Mothman”. “You notice them and they noticed that you notice them.” I have to wonder if this isn’t also the case when UFO’s and/or their occupants that are seen in more private, rural areas. When Rich and I had our experience, we were numb for a few days, but after we decided to start searching our area, it was like all the weirdness around us followed us. No matter where we decided to go to shoot pictures, we always found something, a grey, a possible grey reflecting the green he was hiding in, objects flying over the court house tower, objects that look like they were coming through some kind of doorway and even creatures that resembled the description of the reptilians that are posted in so many stories.

Weird things started to happen at our home. There was significant proof, several times that something/someone was in the house while we were asleep, even though the front door doesn’t open and the back door has five locks. Richard woke up with injuries and at one point was taken from the house and woke up in a field over a mile from the house, very close in fact to where we believe our first abduction took place.

We often thought we were being warned away, and this may be in fact true, since occurrences around the house have dwindled since we haven’t been taking trips off into the woods, down the small dirt roadways that significantly mark the area in which we live.

A few times now, we have had others contact us to tell us of their experiences. When our abduction happened, we had a large number of people in town telling us of objects they saw in the sky, weird actions of their farm animals, and strange noises they heard in the night.

Some people have shared experiences from years ago and say they still feel there is a presence around them, still feel like they are being watched, and still see strange objects on regular occasions around their areas of residence. Others, like this posting, recall stories from relatives going back to grand-parents and great grand-parents showing that many family members had sightings.

Now, I tell you about all of this, because this next sighting that was sent to us, indicates that the family may have had experiences going back for several decades. As is our standard procedure, the exact location of the sightings has been taken out to guarantee this person and their family privacy. We include all of these sightings because we still want people to understand what is out there. This person also indicated that they had a few sightings in other states that they lived in before returning to Missouri. It seems that a lot of reports, when further researched, indicate a true meaning to that line from the Mothman Prophecies. “You noticed them and they noticed that you noticed them.” But you could also add “and they will keep noticing if you notice them.”

Here is the actual report on this sighting.

Hello Lori Carter,

Message:

Hi Lori, After reading “Our UFO Sighting in 1976“, I felt a strong urge to share with you some UFO sightings made by my family and myself in the Wayne County, Missouri area. However I have hesitated, and procrastinated until now. I guess I feel that, somehow, the story of the family in St. Francois County gave some verification to my own sightings and those of my family members. So, I think, in some way, maybe our stories can be helpful to others in the area who have experienced similar events. I have also been excited to find internet articles concerning a large UFO flap in the 1970’s in the South West Missouri area.

My great-grandparents homesteaded a farm in Wayne County Missouri and they had nine children. One of my mother’s cousins has shared a story with any family member who would listen about a sighting she had with her dad. A few years ago my grandmother passed away and this cousin was at the memorial service. I have no idea how we got onto the subject of UFO’s, but she proceeded to tell me about her sighting. This was the first time I ever got to hear her story first hand. She told me that when she was a young girl, she and her father were sitting on the front porch of my great grandparent’s farm house one evening. They both saw a large, glowing orange orb that seemed high in the sky. It came down to a lower elevation and they observed other smaller, orange glowing orbs come out of the larger orb, and they seemed to dance all around in the sky. Eventually the smaller orbs converged again with the larger one and it raced off at an incredible speed, disappearing into the sky.

Now, this is a very brief and basic retelling. She had a lot more details and my memory doesn’t serve me well enough to attempt all of those little details. As she told the story she was looking up as though she was seeing it all again in her mind’s eye. It made a very strong impression on her. I would estimate this sighting to be between the years of 1967 and 1977.

My aunt and mom both tell me that my great aunts and uncles, but not so much my grandmother, would discuss seeing white glowing orbs low in the fields and these orbs would rise into the night sky. Usually they were witnessed by several of the siblings simultaneously. I don’t know the exact ages of all but one of my great aunts and uncles but my grandmother was born in the early 1900’s and one of my great aunts was born in the 1920’s.

I know there was a sister younger than the two of them. This might give some idea of when the white orbs were being seen. It’s difficult for me to trust my own sighting that I had as a very young child. Never the less, it has remained with me all of these years. Although we didn’t live in Wayne County at the time, we frequently would visit the area. Sometimes I traveled there with other relatives instead of my parents.

On the night in question my parents took me to the drive in Movie Theater. I was supposed to be lying down in the backseat and sleeping, but I wasn’t sleepy. I got up on my knees and was looking out the back window when I saw a silver disc with multicolored, blinking lights in a band around the center. They were “largish” and elongated, oval shaped. The disk flew at an angle, and either the center band of lights was blinking on and off in sequence making it appear to be spinning, or it was actually spinning on its axis.

I don’t remember feeling afraid at all; also I didn’t bring it to my parent’s attention. I am not entirely sure, but I may have been reprimanded already for not being quiet, or not laying down like I was supposed to. I have only shared this with a handful of friends. Now that I think of it, I don’t think I’ve shared it with my family! I believe I was only about six or seven years old at the time.

We moved from Missouri when I was eight so this could have been anywhere between 1974-1976 I now live in Madison County and have seen a red orb in the western sky at night. I don’t think it was Mars as it was too large in my estimation and also too fuzzy in appearance if that makes any sense. I estimated it was hovering between where I lived and another small town approximately 20 miles away.

I also saw another red orb in the sky a little bit after sunrise on my way to work from home to the close-by small town where I worked one morning. There were some fantastic pink sunrise clouds and a lot of wind, so the clouds were blowing quite fast and once again this orb was to my left, in the western sky. I kept losing sight of it as clouds would blow in front of it. I estimate it was as high as a jet-liner would fly at cruising altitude. It was so round in shape and so diffused however that I really don’t think it was an airplane. I’ve seen jet planes at sunset and sunrise and they have all seemed more “shiny”, or highly reflective and not so circular in shape.

The person who sent this sighting to us has had other sightings in around the area they live, including the appearance of black, unmarked helicopters. This sighting is very similar to some we have posted previously including the “red/orange” balls that were sighted on 52 East by two people who left their place of employment 10 minutes apart, heading in the same direction. A third party was also witness to this sighting. It was another employee’s son who was out hunting in the same general area.

I don’t have a solid theory, but it does seem like the people, who have sightings in rural areas, will experience more sightings and unexplainable occurrences for the rest of their lives. “You noticed them and they noticed that you noticed them?”

Another Weird Sighting


Author: Lori Carter

I know we haven’t been putting anything up recently and there are very good reasons for that. Gas prices are extremely high, and being on fixed incomes we don’t have the funds to be traveling around at this time. We have had a few financial setbacks including car repairs and house repairs that put another dent in our wallet. We also are looking out for our safety. With all the racial tensions, poor economy, theft of farm machinery, and the threat of gun confiscation, we don’t want to run the risk of possibly being shot or injured on the assumption that we are performing some kind of criminal act.

We have left the site up for the simple reason that we do plan on occasionally going out on a few runs when we feel there is something out there and can afford to do this. As promised, though we will be touching in now and then with sightings that are sent to us.

Our contact in Rich Hill e-mailed us awhile back wondering if we were alright, since he hadn’t seen or heard anything in a while from us. No, we are not sitting in a corner somewhere, shaking like a leaf, afraid to look out or windows, in fact some of our best photos were taken right out our living and dining room windows. He says it has been really quiet down there since the cattle mutilation he sent us awhile back. Ever heard of “the calm before the storm”?

The only other recent rumor was a UFO landing site that was faked by “Gods, Guns and Automobiles.” Hope they are having fun with shooting the episodes for this “Reality” program in our little town.

I did, recently, receive a photo from someone out near the Amsterdam/Merwin area. It was taken by a hunting camera and she wanted to know if we knew what it was. We have taken similar shots during our research, some that turned out to be reflective fences and others, that when we went back during the daylight hours, had no reasonable explanation.

I am posting two of our shots first as comparison, and then the picture that was sent to us. They are very similar and we really don’t know what they are. If you look close at the line of lights, it reminds you of some of the more popular UFO sightings like the Phoenix Lights. These shots, hers and ours were taken closer to the ground.

I asked her about fences, farm machinery or anything with reflective material on it and she assured me there was none. The camera was a hunting camera, attached to a tree in the middle of a cornfield. Is it a landed UFO? Is it some kind of “Ghost” lights? We honestly do not know but it just goes to show that there is still a lot out there that falls under “weird or unknown”.

As always, we encourage you to take photos if you can, of anything out of the normal. We will be glad to post your story and photos and will keep your identity secret. We also ask, if you do decide to do some research of your own, go in groups, stay off private property, and stay safe.

We have said before that we will post any reports. The information that is sent to us doesn’t have to be current. Our goal is to show what is out there, no matter how long ago it was. Following is an e-mail we received after the last article. This dates back to the mid to late 70’s but has haunted this person all of their life. Abductees and experiencers never forget what they have seen or experienced. It stays with them for the rest of their lives.

As with any information, we do not post exact locations or names unless we are asked to. Everyone’s privacy is important and we respect this. Not everyone wants to make a report. Some are worried about what their friends, relatives, and/or neighbors will think, and others have concerns that it will affect their business or employment. We fully understand. We are not affiliated with any of the larger UFO investigative organizations. If you wish to make a report with any of them, be careful. Make sure you know who you are dealing with, Google them, check linkedin, run an online criminal record search.

There are a lot of scams out here and some of them are even associated with larger, more professional UFO/Paranormal groups. Do not sign any kind of release or paperwork until you have it read it thoroughly or you could end up giving up your rights to anything you tell them and any photos you give them. There are some good people out there, just be careful and choose the right one. I am posting the letter as it was sent to us, with the persons permission and the agreement that we do not disclose their name. The attached picture is just a rendition of what they might have seen. This person reached out to us because they needed to talk about it. We are willing to listen and share anything you think others should know about and still keep your name and residence quiet. There is mention of several counties in this letter, because the person wanted us to know that they were familiar with different areas of the state. They do not mention the exact location of this event.

We just want to show that there have been sightings and experiences long before our abduction, and that they continue. Please feel free to share with us anything unusual you have seen or experienced. The letter has been edited for punctuation and spelling only.

1976 Sighting

Rendition of sighting

Rendition of sighting

Dear Sir & Family;

Just wanted to write to you to say I am sorry for all that you have had to go through.

I grew up in St. Francois County Missouri, and spent time in Iron and Reynolds counties as well. My first remembrance of realizing all is not what it seems was around 1975-76. My family was having a reunion on my Grandfather and Grandmothers farm in very rural Missouri. All of the grandchildren were churning home-made ice-cream out in the yard.

It was almost dusk; the sun had just slipped behind the next mountain closest to us. I remember laughing and playing with my cousins….and then everyone became quiet. I realized the adults were looking skyward. All of us youngsters looked up as well– to see at least 6 silver disk shaped objects in still formation above the hilltop (where the sun was setting).

The objects were clearly visible, close proximity, and not making any noise. I will never forget the lights on the objects either. Each object had one row of pulsating white lights that went in a circular motion; you could clearly see the crafts were of a rounded shape. What followed was mayhem. The adults were rushing all of us children into the house, most of us so scared by what we were seeing we were crying. Even most of the adults came into the house with us, and some of my Aunts were crying as well out of fear.

Most of the men of our family stayed outside to watch the objects. When I was allowed back outside, I saw two objects left in the sky and I saw them change their appearance. Both objects became solid bright white lights, like staring closely at car headlights. My Father took us home at that point. I remember one of the lights followed us slowly for several miles. I have since throughout my life seen some strange things in the sky, but never to this magnitude.

This is something that I have not written about or really talked about to anyone, but this experience taught me a lesson at a young age. Over my lifetime (I am now 46) I have always watched the sky, for exactly what I don’t know,-maybe fear, maybe intrigue, maybe even for the day they “officially” land.

I just wanted to tell you-you are not alone in the path you have had to walk. I hope your health will get better and your “walk” will be lighter to bare. Thank you so very much for your website!! Thanks for taking the time to deal with the true reality of what is taking place right under most peoples noses.

Again-Thanks, Take Care, and Blessings to You and Yours

Update

I have been in constant communication with this person. Below is are a few excerpts from  e-mails that I have been authorized to share. There are many details that suggest this person has been abducted at least once, probably more. The dreams that are mentioned, the heightened paranormal activity around the house and the instinctive feeling of being observed or watch are characteristics mentioned in many abductee reports.

Dear Lori;      
Thanks for sending the picture. It is close enough to what we saw that I am shaking as I try to type this and getting nauseated. The disks we saw were a little more silver in color at first( they appeared to be made out of shiny silver “metal”) BEFORE they changed into the bright white lights. That being said, you did an excellent job of the re-creation. The sun set and the beautiful hills pictured are just like being there all over again. This is so upsetting for me, but this needs to be told.
        
That evening, we all truly felt that we were being watched by the “crafts”. I still yet, to this day, get creeped out at times, like they are close around. I get really scared by that feeling. I know that sounds crazy-BUT- I KNOW you understand what I am trying to convey to you.
You have my permission to include the re-creation photo and print my story. In further, this event happened on “AA” hwy in southern St. Francois County, Missouri.
 
Just-a-note-; People are so wrapped up in their day-to-day lives, it is like they do not notice anything out of place anymore. I am sometimes AMAZED — it is almost like people are ” functionaly asleep” — but awake at the same time, just going through the motions of a matrix style pre-programmed life.( Maybe I have that kind of view because of what I witnessed as a child though too). 

Dear Lori;

Thanks for writing back so promptly. Please use any of my emails you need to use for your article.  I have NEVER told anyone the following things I am getting ready to write, save my nineteen year old daughter who also senses when “things” are not “right”.

 Concerning the heightened sense of awareness you wrote of, I have had that all my life as well (since the event). And to be totally honest with you, I DON’T want to know if anything else happened that night. Ever since that night, I have had nightmares of the “smaller greys” being in my presence– at any residence I ever resided at. (Although in my nightmares their color is a combination of green, silver, and pewter kind of all mixed into a strange color)

With these “beings”-there is absolutely NO CHANCE of bonding or forming any sort of human-like or animal-like relationship with them. The feeling I get from these nightmares is of total horror and fear. It feels like trying to find a soul while looking into the eyes of a reptile getting ready to strike at you. It is like there is NOTHING behind those eyes that resembles ANY part of anything like love, compassion, mercy, or even understanding. It is like looking into an utter abyss of black NOTHINGNESS. It feels like being stalked by an aggressive tormentor, that we have no earthly defenses against. (And I still have nightmares of all those flying disks my family saw as well).

Things have also disappeared in our home more times than I can count, only to reappear in illogical, unused areas of our home. We have also had clocks that run without batteries, etc. On occasion, I would get pushed while walking down our stairs, and once my daughter’s boyfriend was pushed on the stairs as well.  Thank God the pushes seemed to be more playful than malicious.  In further, furniture would move around upstairs on the hard wood floors, it made a horribly loud racket. No one was ever upstairs at the time of the furniture moving. It was so common, we would just look at each other and shrug our shoulders.( But having lived here 6 years now, I have noticed the activity in our home is always at peak in the fall months.)       

Note From Author: This person also related that they had paranormal investigators out to the house at one point but their machines and monitors wouldn’t work properly. They never had them come out again. Basically, even though this sighting is from the 1070’s it just proves, again, that when something of this magnitude happens, you become always aware, always concerned and you never forget.

Lights at the Sheriffs Dept.

Lights at the Sheriffs Dept.

Sunday, March 10, 2013 and it’s raining outside again. I wonder if we will experience the same thing tonight that we did last night. Butler, “The Electric City”, so named for being the first city west of the Mississippi River to have electricity loses power whenever the weather changes. If it rains, if it snows, if it is hot, or if it blows you should automatically start reaching for your flashlights. They usually get it back on pretty quick, and it usually only goes out in pockets.

If our electricity goes off, we can usually see lights on one block to the south of us, and one block to the north. If it is evening, you can usually see the glow of other lights around town reflected on the horizon or off the clouds overhead, but last night was different. Last night the whole town was plunged into darkness for close to two hours.

I had just set my watch ahead, from eleven to twelve, as we were getting ready to shut everything down for the night. The lights flickered off, not once or twice, but five times before we were plunged into total darkness. Luckily I already had a flashlight nearby because of the forecast of thunderstorms. Another odd thing about this was the fact there was no thunder near the time the electric went off. We heard a few very distant rumbles a few hours before.

What is strange about this scenario, is the fact that they flickered so many times before they went off, that the whole city, with the exception of the Sheriff’s office and the county jail was plunged into complete and utter blackness and the fact that it was off for so long. I have never seen it this way in the almost six years that I lived here and Richard says he doesn’t ever remember it happening this way in the almost thirty years he has been here.

Within a few minutes, I found myself standing at the north facing window of the house, looking out over a darkened city as I watched Richard walk down the sidewalk, north toward the square. I checked my watch, five minutes, ten minutes, fifteen minutes, twenty minutes I stood there shivering, not sure if it was fear setting in or the lack of heat in the house.

As I stood there, I realized “this is how it could happen”. One little town at a time, plunged into total darkness just about the time most people are getting ready for bed. Everyone just shrugs it off, goes ahead and says their good-nights and wanders off into the slumber of the unaware.

Whether it would be a military power, our own government, some radical militia group, criminals, a super storm or an actual alien invasion, how much simpler could you make it. Everyone wakes up the next morning, unaware of what might have taken place overnight. Maybe several have disappeared from their homes, maybe your block is surrounded by military trucks, or soldiers come knocking at your door. Maybe none of this happens right away and you just sit there, waiting for the electricity to come back on.

All it would take would be several smart bombs aimed at the right targets. Smart bombs originated with the Germans in 1943, how much more exact could they have been developed by now. A smart bomb is aimed at a particular target, with less explosive force to take out that target with minimal damage to surrounding property and structures. It has been determined that one or two E-Type smart bombs, strategically aimed could knock out all the power within their radius of effect.

We bought a little transistor radio a few weeks ago when the two snow storms that hit were predicted, only to find out that it would only pick up one station, the local station, which on weekends might be pre-recorded. We were unable to get any information that would explain this strange blackout.

Technology is a large part of our lives. People don’t buy daily or weekly newspapers like they used to. They watch the news on cable television, scroll through it on the internet, or listen to it with their earphones. No one waits for a letter from a relative. They simply e-mail, text or call them.

What would happen if the whole nation was plunged into darkness, or the whole world for that matter? If all the grids were taken down at once, there would be no way of communication.

Maybe it’s time to look into the way they lived in the middle ages. How did they cook? Where did their food come from? How did they protect themselves? How did they live?

Take into consideration that HAARP is rumored to have been the cause of some of these super storms while some scientists believe that a pole shift has caused the super storms that hit areas like New York, New Orleans and other states on the East Coast. Thousands were plunged into darkness for longer periods of times than we were. Maybe these are practice sessions to start teaching us how to survive should the technology and energy grids go by the wayside.

I guess it is time to get a better radio, stock up on more of each kind of battery and maybe look at a way to cook outside. Whether it is martial law, meteors or asteroids or sun flares, whether it is a military take over from our government or that of another nation or whether it is an alien invasion or a multitude of super storms, we could eventually find ourselves thrown back in time, to the days when people actually had to live without the conveniences and technology we have in our lives today.

In September of 2009, we had an experience. At some point during the beginning of that month, we believe we were abducted, possible three times in two separate areas. Rich and I had decided to pick up the hobby of photography. Early on he had taken some beautiful photographs and hit upon the idea of making up a calendar from these for our area. He thought it would be interesting to see if we could get some of nocturnal animals feeding or roaming through the woods, so we started going out at night.

We took a route out east of town, out East Dakota street, making a few turns until we came to a beautiful bridge we had stopped at a few days earlier. What made this bridge so interesting was the fact that in one of the pictures taken, toward dusk, there appeared a blue orb. There was a tail of blue behind it that made it appear as though it flew right down in front of the camera lens, like it wanted us to see it.blue-orb

For some reason, Rich felt drawn to keep going out on this route. Later we added a little bit more by turning south and heading back to 52 East, heading east and then turning  north on 6003 to H Highway and then back into town. It was an additional 7 to 10 minutes added to our bridge route. It seems that we always felt the need to go this route, until the night that I noticed we were getting back in much later than it normally took us.

The first night that I took the recorder with me, I didn’t mention the time loss to Rich until we got back home and he saw me take the recorder out of the console. We didn’t listen to the tape as we were much too busy going through his pictures. The very next time we went out, we took my recorder and his and it was this fateful night that we realized something strange was going on.

It was a few days and at least two more trips on this route before we listened to the tapes. Richard had gotten some very strange pictures that could not be explained, so he sat up while I slept and listened to both tapes. What was recorded on them changed our lives forever. You can read all specifics about this on the first article published on our website.

For over three years we traveled the country roads of Bates County and there hasn’t been any one trip that we DIDN’T find something strange in a nights shooting. We no longer took recorders because they, unfortunately, were destroyed. What was on them was just more than we could handle.

We have talked about quitting, backing off and trying to lead a normal life, but have we reached the point of no return? How can we go out and not look at the sky? How can we drive down a country road and not listen for unusual sounds or not glance into the woods, gullies, over bridges, or into ravines we pass along the way?

Bubba was no more than 25 feet from Rich under the bridge in Rich Hill. bubbaRich watched his figure swim across the water and start up the embankment. Clem was the same distance, maybe even a little less over the rail of a bridge in Passaic off F Highway.387192_272557922802983_1875664276_nhn The Grey was no further away and it was still daylight when we got his picture out off of 52 East when we were following up on a sighting reported to us by three different people on the same day.grey up close

Among all of our findings, there are many scary beings or entities that were so close to us that it would have only taken moments for them to reach us and yet we came away unscathed. Objects in the sky, beings in the dark and even strange eyes peering at us from the trunk of a tree are just too real to ignore. eye in treeWe can no more ignore them than we could the missing time or the tape recordings that led us to keep searching in the country around our little town.

 

Archie alienNo matter how many times we say we will quit, we can’t ignore what happened to us and what we have found. We can’t walk out of the house without being on high alert. It is just an automatic instinct with us now. We can’t ignore the sky as we drive to the store.

I have to ask myself certain questions. Can I ignore what I have seen so close to us on these trips? Can I erase from my mind the voices and sounds on the tapes that indicate we were abducted and possible abused by humans working in conjunction with aliens? Can I ignore the evidence that tells us something or someone has been in our home while we were sleeping.

Can I ignore what I have felt, heard and seen with my own eyes, and even if I could put all of this to rest, can Richard ignore it at all? It is ever present in our minds and there is no way to say it didn’t/doesn’t happen. We still have strange sounds in the night, strange feelings and even occurrences where something is out of place or we find something laying around we know neither of us brought into the house.

Were we drawn to the bridge on 1004 on purpose? Was there a reason so much has happened and we have found so much? Could I have been influenced to take the tape recorder and could Rich have been influenced to keep going back to the same area?

There are some questions that will probably never be answered and no matter how many times we think we want a normal life, are we are past the point of no return? How can we ignore what we have found, what happened to us, what is out there?

Will we go out again? There is a good chance of this, but if we do, we will be better equipped to bring back the evidences of what we find. We will be better equipped to insure our safety, and I would say that given what we have/do go through we are probably better equipped mentally than we were before.

It is a sad fact, recorded in many books, interviews and articles, that people like us, people who have been abducted, have had sightings, have had weird events in their lives and homes often reach the point where life is completely changed, where there is no turning back to what used to be. They, too have gone past the point of no return.

We are a suspicious race. No matter what happens, when or where it happens, some of us will see a conspiracy in the facts and actions that occurred. Some of us will purposely look for facts and responses that don’t fit what was said or done.

Throughout the history of the United States, conspiracy theories abound on a daily basis. No matter what happens here, someone will go the extra lengths of watching a video, reading an article and listening to audio versions looking for what doesn’t fit.

Let’s take a look at a few. The idea of alien visitation to this planet goes way back, perhaps thousands of years, but it didn’t take on conspiracy factors until the summer of 1947. Kenneth Arnold spotted 9 shiny craft like objects flying over Mount Rainier while he was assisting in a search and rescue. Less than a month later, the “UFO” crash happened in Roswell. From that point on, it is believed that our government started hiding information from us. Many conspiracy theorists have written books on Roswell, Area 51 and so many other areas considered secured and hidden from the public. Milton William Cooper, Author of “Behold a Pale Horse” states in chapter 12 of his book that between January of 1947 and December of 1952 there were, in fact, 16 crashed disks, 65 alien bodies and one live alien recovered.

He goes further to state that in the first year of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s presidential term at least 10 more crashed disks, 26 dead aliens and 4 live aliens were recovered. He goes on to tell us that in 1953 astronomers discovered that several large objects had taken up orbit around the equator. These were  believed to be mother ships. Some people believe that there are still mother-ships orbiting the earth.

According to him, along with many other conspiracy theorists, a contract was made back in the early 1950’s with Alien beings from another planet or solar system and our government. Many of the authors that mention this theory also say that these aliens, who agreed to trade technology for abduction and experimentation on humans, broke their contract. By the time the government found out, it was too late and they realized they did not have the weapons or means to eradicate this race from our planet. Sadly, there are also rumors that they made similar contracts with leaders of other countries.

Let’s take a look at a few others. Phil Schneider, a private contractor working for the government, came forth and said he was injured in a confrontation with alien greys underground. Not long after he exposed all the information he claimed to have, and having said his life was in danger, was found tortured to death sometime later.

Rumors of activities at Montauk that could have resulted in the appearance of the Montauk Monster have also risen to the surface. Not long ago we purchased some DVD’s on this and other UFO conspiracy theories at Wal-Mart. The main people in the Montauk disk claim that the government was doing research in dimensional and psychic subjects. These people also claim that thousands of the children that disappeared around the world ended up in a large grave site there.

Would it be so hard to believe that a government would perform experimentation on their own civilians? It has happened here in the United States, although the government claims it is no longer going on, and it did happen during the reign of Hitler.

All you have to do is browse the internet or go to the local library. You will find book after book about conspiracy theories. One theorist believes that President Kennedy was assassinated because he was getting ready to expose the alien presence here.

Recently there was a post on Facebook about a 9/11 conspiracy author who published his book last year, Phillip Marshall, who was recently found dead in his home with the bodies of his son and daughter. The ruling, as it stands at this moment is “Murder/Suicide”; however the article also relates that he was worried about attempts on his life.

In recent years there have been many famous people who have come forth to say they were abducted or saw a UFO. Just read Whitley Strieber’s book “Communion” or look up the remarks that Buzz Aldrin and a few other astronauts have said.

Our nation is up in arms at the present time because of the gun control laws the government wants to pass. Citizens are convinced it is a move being taken so the government can enforce marshal law.

In February of 1968 Australia and the UK started the disarmament of their country spurred on by the slaughter of 16 children and 1 teacher in 1996 by a crazed gunman. Do you see a connection here “Sandy Hook”? A thought comes to mind. Could these shooters, acting alone, have been controlled by someone else? Milton William Cooper also mentions in chapter 12 “that this alien race said they had been manipulating masses of people through secret societies, witchcraft, magic, the occult and religion”

I found this very interesting list on the internet when searching for countries that have been disarmed: If you do a little bit of math, it adds up to almost 59 million people being killed in a little over 50 years. I’m not saying that all of these deaths were the result of peaceful nations trying to solve their crime problem. Some of these were just outright military takeovers. Austria invited Germany to take over because they thought it would be better for their citizens only to find out after they were occupied that many would be murdered, tortured or experimented on.

Every day you read about something that someone believes is a conspiracy. Whether it is FEMA buying up a bunch of coffins, Social Security buying up rounds of ammunition, or a catastrophe that some people are blaming on the activity of HAARP, the fact remains that there is a lot that happens around this world that there is just no explanation for.

I don’t know for a fact if any of these theories are true. I do know that aliens and UFO’s are present on this planet, and the ones we met were not the friendly kind.  I have always openly confessed my Christian beliefs and my belief in the Bible as a history of Gods miracles and deeds. I believe there is more to the bible than what the “Mother Church” allowed in there. Believing in that, I know that an almighty God would have made life on other planets because he created everything for a purpose.

Here is some food for thought: If aliens were flying from somewhere out in the Universe back in 1947, if they were that much more technically advanced than we were, how much more technically advanced are they now.

Here is a little conspiratorial food for thought: Maybe the disarming of countries around the world is not the choice of the governments, but is being demanded of them because the takeover is not going to be the government militia, but a much more advanced threat from above or that has been hiding under ground, building its cities and bases.

The Bible says that one of the last signs before Jesus comes back to reign is the unification of the world under the rule of one government or one man. It doesn’t state for a fact that the government or man will come from us, so maybe it is coming from above and/or below?

The Midnight Observer was first started back I 2008, a few months before our abductions. The intent of the site was not to log the weird, dimensional, UFO or extraterrestrial information that it has been inundated with. Our main goal was to track cultic, criminal and possible dangerous situations in our rural county and to alert the citizens, neighbors, family and friends as to areas to be aware in. Before we were done building the site, we were abducted.

For three years, searching for who and what happened to us became our life. The physical, financial and emotional toll it took on us can never be fully understandable to most. We would take our last few pennies to put gas in the “Old Grey Ghost, our jeep, to make one more nightly run. We always found something. It was almost like we were drawn to it, but we never found the answers we were seeking, but we believe we have shown that there is a clear and present danger, always around us, always around everywhere.

The pictures and articles on the Midnight Observer speak for themselves. Our lives have been in danger several times. We were stalked, threated and several times Richard was injured with no indication of whom or what did it and no memory.

We have secured our home and are always wary and observant of what is around us day and night. We never leave the house without a camera, but as Richard has said “we are tired, we are done”

We are not taking the Midnight Observer down. No, instead it will transition into the sight it was meant to be from the start. All the pictures and articles will remain, but new articles about the day to day problems, dangers and precautions of normal life will be posted. There will be commentaries, suggestions, instructions and informative articles posted as we see fit.

An article of the weird, supernatural or UFO type may creep in at some point. They will be posted when we are contacted by someone or hear about it from our friends. Our research has taken a large toll on our lives. For now, we are not planning anymore trips. This may change at some time, but at the present we have our health, physically and emotionally to consider. Please check back often as we will still be posting articles about “Clear and Present Dangers.”

Transition

Author: Richard Carter

History is revealed to us in so many ways.  Its political movements and the hijinks of actors and personalities from all sectors of society are, these days, an open book to us. It is amazing how much of the more trivial news in all this is absorbed as consequent content.

While Kim Kardashian’s new dress or the most recent rapper take the scene may hold value in some eyes, I wonder just how much of real consequence is hopelessly hidden beside the façade, the three ring circus that keeps us in a childlike stupor, less inclined to focus.

I am an admittedly naïve individual, even at 53. I believed in the Government of my grandfather and his, not by any means ever a squeaky, clean organization, but one that was still more, grey than black in intention. But, then Governments really cannot be judged as individuals like people locked in a certain faith.  Governments are, by necessity, less skilled or interested in propriety and are more of an ardent believer in the terminologies like manifest destiny.

They, in general, are like married couples. No matter how happy and well-adjusted on the surface, no matter how serene or even benevolent the public face, there is always another set of expressions and beliefs voiced behind closed doors, more indicative of the big picture, one we are shielded from. There really is no complaint in this statement, this understanding, no debasing critic meant.  It is just one of the inescapable, like the thorn accompanying the rose, or the stink of sweat with healthy exertion. Unfortunately these are just signs along the way, marks on the wall to show a child’s physical growth.

Really, just how much responsibility can we place on the Governments of the world for hiding facts, and all the other fearful things in question we lie at their doors, when for the larger part we are abundantly satisfied with our position as the horse plodding on with blinders, when we are blissful in our ignorance?

(“However be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you don’t forget the things which you have seen with your own eyes. Don’t let them fade from your memory as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren. “)  Deuteronomy 4; 9

I wonder, sometimes, if we are the only hope of our children’s real education, the schooling that seems of little importance to society. I wonder if the strange reports Lori and I have accumulated really are something that is kind to press upon another no matter how good and protective the intention.

I wonder if there is a complete truth in that scripture, one that truly serves the needs of all and don’t, by the necessity of its possible subject matter, only instead separate people in long held, immovable lines of logic and belief.

For over 3 years we’ve given ourselves to something  we passionately believed in. But, in all that time the responses to the narratives we have left, the frightful pictures we have gathered, has been minimal. I completely understand, what can you say?   I am not a priest, and have never been a temperament enough man to adequately pass on a message of this importance.

But we tried. A vehicle was lost in the effort and probably a few thousand dollars in gas, memory cards, cameras and computers that we wore out.  Our health has been, from the first day of it, in question. I literaly had a new life laid at my feet with the means of controlling my illness and what did I do?  We hastened directly into three years of nightmares. I’m tired!  I’m done!   I want to go about my life without the truth that hangs over our head, so constantly on my lips. I want to blissfully don the blinders and finally, as much as humanly possible, relax.

There is no way, no amount of time, no inundation of new experience that will ever wash away the truth, as in the scripture, one that I have seen with my own eyes.
