X-Zone Broadcast Network – Jerry Clark

Posted On By Myths&UFOs

week I discussed the UFO Encyclopedia, 3rd
, with the author, Jerome (Jerry) Clark. Before we began our
discussion, I mentioned that it was the 50th anniversary of my destroying
a UH-1H helicopter by triggering a land mine in South Vietnam. Knowing full
well that there are many people who claim Vietnam service who were never there,
and knowing some might be not believe the story, you can read it in the unit
history of the 187th Assault Helicopter Company here:
scroll down to May 16, and you’ll find it… and yes, this has nothing to do with
UFOs and I mentioned it only because it was fifty years ago today that it
A young Jerry Clark.
on to the UFO stuff and Jerry Clark.
given the timing of the show, we had to mention the passing of Stan Friedman a
few days earlier. I thought it important to acknowledge his passing and we
devoted the first segment of the show to that.
did get around to talking about his UFO
, which is a massive resource, that is a must for anyone who is
serious about UFO research. To me, one of the most important aspects of the
Encyclopedia, is the list of sources at the end of each of the articles. That
allows the reader to find additional information, some of it providing an
opposing view or giving an alternative solution.
I wanted to cover the questions that readers had sent, we did run out of time.
I tried to ask at least one question from each of those who supplied them. One
of them concerned the airship wave of 1897. I had thought that Jerry believed
there was a core of good reports that began in late 1896, but that many of the
sightings in 1897 were, shall we say, imaginative. Jerry quickly corrected me.
did go back and look at the entry from the 2nd Edition of his Encyclopedia so that I could compare it
with the latest version. The entry had evolved, and covered sightings that began
in other parts of the world some fifty years earlier. It seems that the
sightings involve some sort real event but when we reach April, 1897, it is
clear that the majority of those reports are faked. I asked specifically about
the Aurora, Texas, crash, which, given what we know today, is laughable, when
you read the original report. I am astonished that there are those who still
believe this was a real event. You can find more information about it, and the
Alexander Hamilton calf-napping here:
also talked, briefly about contactees and abductions. Time prevented us from
going into depth about these topics. I think you get a feel for where Jerry is
on the topics and I do mention that George Adamski’s tales of Venus failed to
account for the surface temperature that is hot enough to melt lead… not the tropic
environment that so many envisioned in the 1950s.
up is Dr. Dan Farcas and his theory about Hyper-civilization. It is an interesting
take on a number of questions about UFOs and other topics. For those who have
questions, as always, append them here in the comments section and I’ll try to
get them asked.

I was never much for UFO stories until I started to see strange stuff 2002 on the midnight starry sky! Together with my partner we stood out in the lonely woods and glared out in to the universe. We were admiring the stars. Then all of a sudden, the biggest star in a classical star formation, just ran across the night sky and just behind 4 more stars followed. I thought they ran fast to begin with, just to accelerate! After this, weird things started to happen. Before this, hunting for UFOs hadn't even crossed my mind!
