The UFO Report for November 1978 (pictured) is fraught with tidbits, almost 40 years ago, that are still resonating with UFO buffs today, confirming the literary cliché, plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose (the more things change, the more they stay the same).
For instance, on Page 6/8, where Messagesto the magazine appear, there is a letter from a Bill Hamilton of Los Angeles, California which opens with this:
“Since I was present with Ray Stanford when he made his visit to George Adamski in early 1959 …”
Ray Stanford visited Adamski in 1959 and was in Socorro in 1964? Mr. Stanford has been in the thick of the UFO hubbub for a very long time and is still going strong. I’m hearing that more about Mr. Stanford is about to surface. God bless him.
Beginning on Page 20 of the magazine, an article by Coral and Jim Lorenzen, An Extraterrestrial Encounter, tells the tale of an alleged UFO abduction of Air Force Sergeant Charles Moody.
The Lorenzens were and are respected UFO investigators, even as they endorsed UFO abductions and UFO encounters with “beings.”
In the article, on Page 58, Sergeant Moody described the leader of his purported kidnappers whom he was with while in the craft:
“It had a head with a cranium about one third larger than an average human head. There was no hair, no eyelashes, no eyebrows. The ears were smaller than a human’s, as was the nose, and the skin was whitish-gray in color … It was almost like a mask … the mouth was small and there were no lips. There was no mouth movement at any time.”
“The brow was a protruding one and the eyes beneath were not ovoid like those of a human’s, but more rounded.”
“Moody said the being he was with [had a height] between four feet, eight inches and five feet.”
Moody was taken from his car, initially, by two larger beings (about 6 feet tall) who were able to overcome him, as he fought back.
These larger beings wore black outfits whereas the “leader” inside the craft wore a white tight-fitting outfit. All were thin, the “leader”weighing about 135 pounds.
The usual examination table was noted and the lighting without a source also.
Moody was granted a look at the craft’s propulsion system – rods underneath crystal-like glass. And there was a black box, which Moody thought was a weapons system.
I won’t bore you further with the extensive details provided by Moody to Jim Lorenzen, but all the abduction (experiencer) memes or tropes are intact in the account.
Then on Page 28 there is (was) a piece by Bryce Bond who interviewed Gordon Creighton, Creighton pushing the idea that UFOs come from another dimension – that idea often showing up here, at this blog — and further dismissed Von Daniken’s ancient astronaut theses.
Further, Creighton fleshed out his interview with a suggestion of encounters by inter-dimensional beings that smacks of what Jose Caravaca or Jacques Vallee propose in their theories of UFO being-appearances.
The magazine had its slew of UFO photos, as was the norm in the day:

So, nothing has changed, has it ?
We are still dealing with the same UFO crap in 2017 that UFO buffs were dealing with in 1978, and Ray Stanford persists.
