Not Of This Earth
By William Pullin, UFO Historian
Greetings! Possibilities. On this date, May 11th, back in 1950, the famous McMinnville, Oregon UFO photographs were taken by Mr. Paul Trent. These famous photographs have held up under intense scrutiny after all these years and remain unexplained. No hoaxing has been found. In my professional opinion, the Trent photographs are one of the few examples of physical evidence which strongly suggests the possibility of non-terrestrial technology in our skies, in other words, alien spacecraft. UFO investigators have found that the vast majority of photographs which are purported to show alien spacecraft, or at the very least, unidentified flying objects, are explainable by mundane phenomena; bugs on a windshield, misidentified aircraft, weather anomalies, celestial phenomena, birds, the planet Venus, flares, hoaxes, and other such things being the usual culprits. However, there are a few, a very few, photographs which have escaped such explanations and have remained unexplained, the Trent photographs being among them. The possibilities are simply fascinating! We may have in our possession, a few examples of photographic evidence of alien visitation, alien technology operating in our skies, non-terrestrial technology constructed somewhere other than on our home planet Earth. The mind simply boggles! Such possibilities are what makes working on the UFO problem so challenging, fascinating, and enjoyable. Thank you for your interest and precious time.
