Researcher, MUFON investigator, and author of 15 books on UFOs, ghosts and the paranormal, Preston Dennett discussed underwater UFO activity off the coast of Southern California and other locations, as well as evidence for UFO healings of illnesses. There've been numerous sightings of UFOs or USOs (unidentified submersible objects) in which craft hit water at a high rate of speed and then appear to be swallowed up. One location in particular, a deep channel/trench near Catalina Island, has been a hotbed of USO activity, he reported. A witness on a Navy ship saw glowing objects hovering, and breaking in pattern a couple miles out to sea, he detailed.
Dennett reviewed a number of cases from the 1950s. One incident in January 1956, involved multiple witnesses including police officers, who saw a glowing bright object about 12-feet across land offshore at Redondo Beach, CA. The object disappeared and divers unsuccessfully tried to locate it. Later, the Coast Guard tried to claim that the mysterious object was a light buoy. In 1954, a fireball was seen moving in and out of the water near a Japanese steamship, Dennett added.
Because of the numerous sightings off Catalina, he's concluded there may be an undersea ET base there. "If they wanted access to a very large population base such as LA without being detected, it's the perfect place to hide," he commented. Dennett cited a number of reports in which people claim to have healings associated with UFOs. For instance, a Peruvian customs official walked out on a balcony and saw a UFO high in the sky. He was looking at it, trying to figure out what it was, when it sent down a violet beam of light that struck him in the head and chest. Subsequently, he said he was cured from both rheumatism and near-sightedness.
First hour guest, author Mark Adams talked about his explorations at Machu Picchu. Known as the 'Lost City of the Incas,' the site is deep in the Andes Mountains of Peru. It's thought that a group of Inca nobles moved to the remote mountaintop location to escape Spanish conquerors, he noted. Adams described some of the unique buildings on the site, and his startling experience of being there during a June solstice, when beams of light shot into the Sun Temple, forming a perfect rectangle of light.
Mark Adams sent us photos of Machu Picchu in tandem with his first hour appearance on the 5/3/12 show. The full site is pictured on the left, on the right is the enigmatic Intihuatana stone.
