Roswell case in South Africa
« on: July 19, 2006, 02:15:25 PM »
At the beginning of this month, a UFO conference was held at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. Dubbed "Unbind Your Mind," one would have to, to believe some of the more prominent accounts that highlighted the get together. This meeting was part of the "World UFO Day," which relates to the Roswell case. Several discussions were given, with the most controversial being that of a UFO landing with alien contact in the Kalahari Desert. This "second annual" event is the project of one Cristo Louw, who recently had his 15 minutes of fame when he reported the sightings of several people who claimed to have seen a UFO fall into the Indian Ocean near Port Shepstone. Louw generates his reports and other UFO related information through the SAFOUR, or South African UFO Resource organization. After a brief flurry of interest the case was soon dismissed. Louw states his case for UFOs this way: "People who have seen UFOs are often dismissed as attention- seekers,' he was quoted as saying while also telling the newspaper about his own experiences of seeing 'some unexplained lights', but nothing major like being invited to board a UFO and being taken for a trip to the moon or Mars."

UFOs and ET Life Under the Spotlight was authored by Benita van Eyssen, and is a very informative piece. In a case highly reminiscent of America's Roswell event, Louw discussed one of South Africa's most heralded UFO cases, the 1989 shoot down by the South African Air Force of a UFO traveling at a high rate of speed. This incident occurred near the border of Botswana. A large craft was found, with a strong magnetic field. The craft was 150 feet in diameter and had a crew of humanoid beings. The beings very much resembled the so-called "greys." This case, like so many others like it, ends in mystery and government cover-up. For many years, the most famous South African UFO case of all is that of contactee and meteorologist Elizabeth Klarer, who snapped a series of UFO photos, one of which is included at top of article. She claims to have contacted the aliens in the Drakensberg Mountains, and even had an alien lover. She traveled to his home planet, and ultimately bore his offspring. Although her 1980 book, Beyond the Light Barrier was popular with many readers, eventually she became known as a member of the "thrown hubcap" group of contactees, and was either delusional or mentally ill. I wonder if she had a weather report for her alien lover's home planet. Folks! This is the reason that ufology gets such a bad name sometimes. It is sad, but we must continue to separate the wheat from the chaff.
