New Book Discloses "Lost" UFO Cases of the Old West
The authors of the popular series "The Real Cowboys & Aliens" are releasing a new book that reveals even more fascinating stories of UFO encounters during the mid to late 1800s. Readers will be shocked to learn that UFOs were seen in the skies over North America, although they were commonly misidentified as "meteors," "balls of fire," and other celestial phenomena.
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"
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 and also at the authors' web site, RoswellBooks.com.
