New Book Discloses “Lost” UFO Cases of the Old West
Unidentified flying objects were seen frequently in the skies over North America during the mid to late 1800s, according to Lost UFO Cases of the Old West, a new book by authors Noe Torres and John LeMay. The book is available at Amazon.com.
Although they have previously written six books about UFO incidents from the 1800s, the authors say that they continue to discover more cases, causing them to keep writing. “This is our second Lost Cases book,” Torres said, “The term ‘lost’ indicates that these incidents are mostly unknown, having vanished into history. Yet when one reads them, they are amazing from the perspective of what we now know about UFOs.”
Among the cases covered in this book is an incredible 1854 sighting over the nation’s capitol during the administration of U.S. president Franklin Pierce. People walking the streets of Washington, D.C. were astonished to see an extremely bright “crimson red” light moving slowly across the sky above them.
In 1884, onlookers in New York City also saw a jaw-dropping sight that some called a “meteor” but had very strange characteristics. It was described in Scientific American magazine as looking like a “gigantic sword of fire, moving handle first.” The resemblance to a modern rocket launch is uncanny. Religionists called it a “sign or wonder” from God.
Among the strangest of these cases was the landing in 1897 of a strange craft near Linn Grove, Iowa, out of which came two “queer-looking” humanoids. One of the eyewitnesses said the two occupants of the UFO “had the longest whiskers they ever saw in their lives.” As the creatures left, they dropped two strange “stones” made of an unknown material.
These are just a few of the many strange cases contained in this new book by Torres and LeMay, who also authored a series of books called The Real Cowboys & Aliens. They previously published The Real Cowboys & Aliens: The Lost Cases and Space Monsters of the Old West. Their latest book is available at Amazon.com.
