Show Notes: Ray Stanford, AAO/UFO & Dinosaur Tracking

Simulcast YouTube Live Streamed and on KGRA Radio Tuesday, November 13th at 6:00PM to 8:00PM EST (GMT-4)

Alejandro Rojas with UFO Updates, guest Ray Stanford studied UFOs for decades, including scientifically with cameras and instruments. However, he will NOT focus on what his instruments have revealed in looking up, but, instead, upon what he has learned by looking down at the earth in two periods: (1) ~ 110 million years ago, and (2) beginning ~ 2,000 years ago, at contents of Hopewell, Fort Ancient, and Mississippian Indian mounts. Some intriguing hematite (Fe2O3) domed discs made by ancient native Americans suggest that they might have had close-range observations of domed, disc-shaped sky objects that deeply impressed them. Ray will show us some of those intriguing (and even somewhat magnetic) hematite objects.

Bio: Ray Stanford is best-known in the media for his unprecedented dinosaur-age discoveries. A few of them: (1),A new species of dinosaur, Propanoplosaurus marylandicus, displayed in Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History; (2) the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s ~ 2m2 ironstone slab with about 90 footprints of diverse mammals, dinosaurs, and pterosaurs (‘pterodactyls’) interacting; (3) the largest and most detailed mammal footprints ever found in the Mesozoic; (4) the largest pterosaur footprint ever found, & size-comparable pterosaur feeding traces; (5) the most skin-detailed sauropod footprint (Maryland) and smallest sauropod trackway (Texas); (6) Maryland’s largest (at 5”) theropod claw bone yet found; (7) an unprecedented dinosaur ichnospecies (footprint type), i.e., Hypsiloichnus marylandicus; and other paleontological world-firsts.
Ray’s NASA Goddard Space Flight Center discovery was published in Nature’s Scientific Reports (January 31, 2018). His new dinosaur species is described in the Journal of Paleontology (September, 2011). His new dinosaur footprint species description is in Ichnos (Volume 11, 2004). An overview of his many Maryland Early Cretaceous footprint discoveries is in Ichnos (Volume 14, 2007).

University Art Museum, U.T., Austin, published Ray’s paper on Mayan titles and themes in the art of Carlos Merida, in its retrospective catalog of Merida’s work, 1976.
From 1959 to present, Ray pioneered in successful use of cameras, magnetometer, gravimeter, spectrographic camera, audio recorder, etc. in recording well documented daylight optical images and electronic hard data of anomalous aerial objects (AAOs). It will be published appropriately.

Reddish UFOs

In June 2018 my wife took a cruise with a friend and his wife from New Orleans to Mexico and back. On the return cruise, she went out on the balcony around midnight where the sky was clear and the full moon was out. As she sat on the balcony, she centered herself and asked what she was supposed to learn from the difficult time they were having with her friend’s wife, who has Alzheimer’s. After a while she saw what appeared to be 3 reddish orange “birds” flying not far away. As she watched, they would dematerialize and appear again somewhere else in the sky. This continued for several minutes and at one point she counted 7 of them at one time.

When her friend joined her, he saw them and observed that the “birds” were not flapping their wings and that they seemed to be making their own light. I.E. the moon was casting a silver light and the UFOs were not silver.

My wife and I have been watching all of Dr. Steven Greer’s YouTube presentations and have been meditating in order to try and contact ETs as he does with groups. We have come to the conclusion that the UFOs (birds) were appearing for my wife’s benefit.

Quick Sighting in Buga, Valle del Cauca, Colombia

Hello Martin,
Thanks for sharing your link. As much as I listen to your show and spout-off about UFOs in group messages/online, I shouldn’t worry about anonymity. Haha, but I understand its necessity.

Sadly, I do not have pictures, only a brief recollection and a corroborating witness (that does not speak English).

First, I’ll provide some quick back story. I love South America, and Colombia in particular, as the taboo nature of ET/UFOs is much less than home in the States. Many people aren’t exactly, chomping at the bit to share stories or talk on the subject, but many will openly admit if they’ve seen something, or at the very least, NOT ridicule an individual immediately. (ITS DELIGHTFUL! haha.)

I was riding my moto/scooter through the streets of Buga, a sleepy rural community about an hour outside of the nation’s third largest city of Cali. I went to pick up my girl friend from her night class at the local university. She got out of class a bit late that evening, around 9:30. I was waiting for her on my moto, playing on my cell phone outside the school gate. I greeted her and as she climbed on my moto and put her arms on my shoulders, she paused for a moment. She pointed up in the air, and said rather calmly in Spanish, “well, there is the UFO you are always talking about.”

We gazed upwards at an angle, (I am unsure how many degrees) off to the South East direction, and there against the backdrop of a dark evening sky was what seemed like a cluster of objects, in the shape of a LARGE, dark triangle. No lights, No noise. The object, or objects, moved incredibly slowly and was relatively low in the sky, far too low to be an air plane.
I recalled a particular brown shade to the cluster, or object, but my girlfriend disagrees and recalls it being a dark triangle. We stared and squealed with glee, I fumbled in my pockets for my phone, trying not to break my gaze of the object. As it floated slowly, and soundlessly off into the distance, a building blocked my gaze. I gasped, looked down to pull out my phone, and told my girlfriend to hang on tight we were going to try for a closer look. We took off on my moto, heading southeast in the direction we last saw whatever it was, but within moments, as we passed buildings and finally reached a clear roadway, we had lost the object(s).

I am no aviation expert, solely an arm-chair ufologist, but I know it was NOT a plane. Perhaps a VERY LARGE flock of birds, or a cluster of dark balloons, I really cannot say anything for sure. But it was LARGE, LOW FLYING, SILENT, and TRIANGLE shaped.
Many of my local friends have told me, (after I bring up the subject) that the Cauca Valley, and this rural community sees OVNIs or UFOs relatively frequently.

Silent Fuselage

On Sept. 2nd, 2017 I was camping with some family members on my property located in Indianola, Utah. At about 7:00 pm I was setting in front of my brother in-law’s trailer along with my wife, sister, and brother in-law. I was looking to the south and saw what I first thought was a small jetliner sized plane (50 passenger) moving from the southwest to northeast in a shallow curve to the east. It was flying parallel to a mountain ridge that is south of my property and was at an altitude of about 1000 feet above the ridge. The object was flying flat and level at about the speed of a small private plane.
The object looked like the fuselage of a small jetliner, and was silver in color, having what looked like window in the front but no windows along the sides. The odd thing about it was that I could not see wings or tail section on the fuselage. It had a rounded front and end. It was about 1.5 miles from my location.
I then noticed that there was no sound from the engines. My brother in-law said he could barely hear something but I could hear nothing. Something that large should have made a lot of noise to stay in the air. By the time I was able to get a pair of binoculars and get them adjusted I only caught a glimpse of the object before the mountain obscured the view. Through the binoculars I saw some red toward the rear of the fuselage which may have be a reflection of the evening sun. It could have been a very large balloon, but blimps have engines that can be heard and it didn’t look like a blimp. If it was a free floating balloon then it was a very large one and its altitude would change as it passed over the ridge but its altitude was always the same. I really don’t know what it was.

Strange lights Near Wodonga, Victoria in Australia.

Strange lights Near Wodonga, Victoria in Australia.

This is my UFO sighting from Wodonga, Victoria, Australia at approximately 8:20 PM on Saturday, 17 March. It was dark as there was a low cloud cover (due to a rain shower). It was a mild evening (approximately 25° Celsius 0r 77° Fahrenheit) at the time I had the sighting. I went outside as I had noticed that there was a light rain shower which was unusual as it’s been a very hot day and a long period of dry weather. I called for my father to come out side and check out the rain. We were outside for a couple of minutes and as we turned to go back inside my father noticed a light the sky. He asked, what is that? At first I thought it was a plane or an aircraft of some kind but I quickly realized it was stationary in the sky. It was located in a south west direction. From my position, it was 240° on my compass. It was at height of between 10° and 15° from the horizon in the sky. It’s hard to estimate the altitude of the object but it was definitely below the low cloud cover. No other celestial object were visible in the sky. The width of the object was not quite as wide as what the moon would be but there was three lights in a straight line formation. Each light flashed individually from the left to the right but you could still see the glowing of the other lights when the lights were flashing. It was hard to make out any shape but the flashing lights were very bright (white like magnesium burning). It stayed for approximately five minutes in the same spot with no noise. It then gradually it moved to the left (or to the south) but away from where we were. It was approximately 210° on the compass where it’s stopped again and it was stationary for another five minutes before it moved away from us (the same original direction) and eventually out of sight. It was very unusual. I estimate the object that we were witnessing was approximately 3 to 4 kilometers from our location. We were perplexed at what we had witnessed. I was not able to capture a photo of the object at the time but I took a picture of the direction we viewed the object from the location we viewed the object the next morning (I drew dots where the object we observed was) – I hope that makes sense? Please let me know if you have any questions.

UFO Over Waterloo, Ontario Canada Dec. 7th 2016

See the video I captured here :

This sighting took place in Waterloo Ontario, 100 km west of Toronto. On December 7th 2016, at around 5 pm. I was at work and I stepped outside for a cigarette break, and I was listening to PODCAST UFO! I’m not joking… I listen to the show all the time at work and am very into the study of the Phenomenon.
It was close to dusk, just going into the civil twilight period which is the brightest part of twilight. The sun was down, but it was still very light out, just around the time the street lamps come on. I had a great view of the area because my workplace is on the top of a hill, which gave me an excellent view of the southern sky that night.
I was looking south and immediately noticed a very bright light low in the sky, not far above the horizon. I thought this was a strange place for such a bright light and it seemed to be very far away but still really bright. It was brighter than Venus or other planets I had seen in the skies many times before at that time of day. It was much brighter than satellites and the ISS, and I became very puzzled by its peculiar features. I was amazed to see it pulse on and off. It was a quick strobing that flashed brightly about three times then two or three dimmer flashes all in about half a second then no flashing for a second then it repeated. It was intense and very bright then would completely fade. It continued to pulse and then I noticed it was moving. It was at this point I quickly grabbed my phone and starting recording video. This light seemed really weird to me because I had seen so many satellites before and never saw I bright light pulse on and off. I thought it was something like the ISS space station spinning or reflections off of a spinning satellite, but it was pulsing quickly like a strobe light then off then strobing again. I could see other planes in the sky and their lights were not bright and you could see a solid outline of a plane clearly against the sky. In the video there are 1 or 2 planes at low altitudes but they are not even detected by the camera.
The strobing like from the object did seem a bit like aviation lights that strobe but after looking into it I have not found any aircraft that have bright white intense strobing white lights. This flashed brightly when it was low on the horizon, coming towards me and also flashed bright when it was above me. All the air craft I have seen only are bright from one direction, either head on or under the craft, not both, and never white.
Compared to the light I was looking at, it was completely different than the planes in the sky. When the light stopped pulsing, there was nothing there in the sky that was visible. There was no solid dark shape that should have been visible. It seemed like it was at a very high altitude. I’m guessing at the max flight ceiling or higher. I have never seen anything like this in the sky before and it was very interesting to watch.
I reported the sighting to MUFON and NUFORC. A MUFON investigator followed up via email and determined it was a helicopter because he did a quick search and found an airport in the area. The problem with his conclusion was that the light wasn’t anywhere near the airport. It was much farther to the southwest. I know this because I live right beside the airport and have been seeing all the lights and traffic that come through there for years. There is no way this was a helicopter because helicopters don’t fly over the city at high altitudes. The small older helicopters only fly short routes over the country and the only other helicopter you see is the rescue or emergency craft that travels to Toronto to the hospital. Helicopters do not have bright pulsating or strobing bright white lights that fly at super high altitudes. Every helicopter I have seen flying I have heard even at a distance.
I have been outside at work on break, looking at the great view from the top of the hill, many, many times before, and have seen lots of satellites, planes and helicopters. All of which are highly recognizable and mundane. What I saw December 7th was very strange and remains unexplained as far as I am concerned.
In the Video I shot of the craft on Youtube I point out that it seemed to “zig – zag” in a quick weird manner as it was over head and have stabilized footage of it moving. But after re shooting video of a plane in the same position a few weeks later, I realized this was an anomaly cause by slighting moving the camera or phone while zooming.
Even though I realized it didn’t move in the “zig zag” manner, this pulsing UFO is something very strange, and is not a helicopter, plane and I don’t think it’s the disco ball satellite either.
After watching the video again, it seems to change speed and almost pause at the 1:20 mark. A satellite moves quickly across the sky in a very steady and straight course.

Before the Phoenix Incident

“Im 48 and have had a lifetime of sightings and other things. will write more soon. but here’s a nice one,
Sometime in the 90’s MY wife and I and a friend watched a giant v shaped group of pale white light past overhead in Miami Fl then we saw another of the same a few seconds later moving in the same direction *due west*
just like the Phoenix object. I’m positive it was before 95′ they were very high up, it was still daylight out but i could not tell if it was one large object.
At the time I felt that it was.
this has not been reported anywhere before. I called Homestead Air force tower and was told it might have been a refueling operation.
lol! you couldn’t cover this thing with a wide open newspaper at arms length!
Hurricane Andrew tore up Homestead Air force base in late 92 so I think it was 91 to 93 when it happened.
I got photo’s of orange fireballs in 95 and reported that to Mary Margaret of Mufon at that time and she got negatives and photos. and there’s more.

Happened in Botswana in the Okavango Delta

This incident has been reported to MUFON and I spoke to a MUFON representative. The MUFON rep/investigator after figuring distance and other factors determined the object  had to be the size of a 737 plane.
Unfortunately I have no video no photos. There is a reason for this. Two years ago I was in Botswana Africa in the Okavango Delta staying in a small water/land based camp. Its the middle of nowhere. There is nothing there but wetlands and wild life.
I was walked back to my tent around 8:30 PM by staff. The night is dangerous because of wild animals so I had to be walked back. The sky was totally clear and beautiful because of the clear air. After getting back I decided to enjoy the night sky. I could hear monkeys and baboons calling. I also could hear hippos moving around in the water. Looking at the sky I had a sudden thought,  “what if I saw a UFO right now?” I was surprised because though I have always been interested in the subject I had absolutely no reason to have such a thought. However, approx 5 minutes later I noticed something out of sorts. It was a moving light. It was oval shaped and yellow-white in color. It pulsed. Every 3 seconds it pulsed. I determined it was no known object but I kept trying to make sense out of it. The object moved in a descending manner from right to left. It then suddenly make a sharp 90 degree turn down to the delta. This startled me as I realized it was an unusual maneuver for whatever the heck it was. I then thought it was gone until approximately 5 seconds later there was burst of brilliant light in the tree tops directly across my tent. It was approx 1000 feet out in a direct line from my tent to the tree tops. It was behind the trees and I could not see the shape nor the size because of the incredible darkness surrounding me. There is nothing there at night. No boats, no planes, nothing. The night in the Delta belongs to the animals living there. The camp is small, no more than 8 tents that are well spaced from one another. Everyone retires early to bed. Whatever the object was it was silent and remained in the tree top. Ever 3 seconds a strong, brilliant light pulsed.
The light was like a giant flashlight lighting up the trees horizontally. The light did not shine vertically.
I could feel the hair on my arms standing straight up as I had another weird thought pop into my head. I thought, “it’s here because of me”. I then laughed as I thought, “where the hell did that come from?”
Looking at the trees I could not see the actual object. There was no sound. I then realized something unusual. All the animals meaning the hippos, monkeys, etc. were dead quiet. The delta became quiet. Its during the night that animals come out and can be loud. This time it was quiet.  Furthermore I felt dopey, like I could not think clearly. My camera was 10 feet away from me but I could not react nor think to get it. I watched this every 3 second pulsing white light for approx 8 minutes. I kept trying to figure things out but couldn’t think clearly.
After approx 8 minutes I felt compelled to go to bed and found as I lay down the light to still be there. I immediately fell asleep which is highly out of the ordinary for me. I remember thinking “its still there. I have to sleep”.
The next morning I took a photo of the trees where this object was. I was incredulous as I could believe or understand my behavior. I could not understand how I could immediately go to sleep with an unknown object outside my tent in the trees. I could not understand why I did not move to get my camera or even my phone.
The behavior I had exhibited the previous night was out of character for me.
I asked the people at breakfast, “did anyone see an unidentifiable light last night?” I got strange looks as people said “no”. I was asked to explain but felt uncomfortable and stopped.
As I left Botswana a few days later I got a nagging feeling of there being something more but I could not grasp it. This feeling stayed with me until I got an MRI.
I received MRI’s before which for me is not unusual. I never had a problem with them.
During the MRI (which emits different sounds) there was one sound which set me into a dead state of panic. I had a flashback to a memory. I want to say I have always been a skeptic of the alien abduction phenomena. Except for Travis Walton I have not read about abductions and was wary of people claiming to have been abducted.
In the flashback I saw myself on a table. At the foot of the table were some beings. They were not directly at the foot rather they were standing at a back wall. I could only see them partially as the table was raised. I could not move my arms or legs. I could not get up from the table. I could only partially move my head. My head was sorta held in place by a device from the ears up. I was screaming, yelling, “no, no please don’t do this” over and over. I screamed, “please let me go”.
I got a sudden feeling of immense pressure in my head. Behind me and on either side of the table were two other beings. They were different from the others in that they were taller and had a different color.
The shorter ones, though I could see only part of their head I knew were approx 3 and a half-4 ft tall while the other guys manipulating the thing on my head were taller, approx 5 ft or more. These guys were dark brown while the shorter ones were grey.
During the panic I did what I could to stay focused on the here and now. As I came out of the tube there was a large white light on above my head. I almost became panicked again.
After this I had sudden images pop into my head of the taller beings. At the time I dismissed them. I wish now I had not since I can no longer exact details of how they looked. I do know their heads were like ours but they had no ears and had flat facial features. I have not read about alien or alien types.
The MUFON guy sent me an abduction questionnaire. I was surprised by many of my positive responses. This in turn caused me to reflect on prior partial memories. I try to be careful of these memories because I understand how all to easy it is to fill in what you cannot fully recall.
I understand now that this was not my first time. Needless to say I will listen openly when someone claims to have been abducted. I will not be as dismissive as I have been before.
After watching MRI videos on YouTube I finally found the specific sound I heard in the MRI tube that caused the flashback.
I know this specific sound was similar enough to have caused the flashback. I am sure the sound was related to the whatever the device was that was on my head.
One thing about the alien beings that stood out for me was the impression I got from them that is, not at all one of hostility but rather one of strict clinical detachment.
