The Sangre de Cristo Lights

Beginning on January 20th, I started photographing the lights we see over the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) mountain range east of our house. Doing some research on several Internet mapping pages, this object is approximately 15 miles from us as the crow flies. We have also overlaid images taken of this light on top of a daytime image of the exact same location which shows the size of the main light to be quite large in relationship to the mountain and surrounding terrain. My best guess at this time is that the main light we see is easily 50-100 yards in length. This is purely speculation at this point based on the overlays mentioned above and will require more research. Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel XTI DSLR with a 300mm lens, tripod and shutter release cable. The settings on the camera were as follows: F/4.5, ISO 400, manual […]

UFO Sighting

UFO Sighting – 12.24.2013

Exactly one week after my last sighting I was fortunate enough to witness another one in the New Mexico sky. This time I had a witness as Jari was also present. Just prior to this sighting, there were numerous unexplained events that took place inside the house. As we stepped outside to discuss what had just taken place, we looked up at the sky and saw what we assumed were the only two visible stars in the sky at the time. Venus was also still visible on the horizon to the west as we faced south. As we stared at these two stars, the one on the top suddenly did what would best be described as some type of power-up. It suddenly got extremely bright then disappeared in about one second. As with the previous sighting we didn’t have any recording equipment on us but in this case I don’t […]

The Taos Hum

Known locally as the Taos Hum, strange, unexplained sounds that seem to come from either the sky above or the earth itself are now being reported globally. The Taos Hum however is a little different than what is being reported elsewhere. One major difference with the Taos Hum is that only 2% of the residents are able to hear it, more than likely based on the frequency. There have been reports of people committing suicide as well as moving away from the area due to this phenomena because those that can hear it say it almost never stops. Another interesting fact is that many people who can hear it say that it’s loudest while they are inside and much quieter outside. Scientists from several universities in New Mexico as well as Los Alamos National Laboratories have studied the Taos Hum but none of the research teams have yet been able […]

The Return

My journey from the Netherlands was a long and arduous one. A process that began on what seemed like a whim well over three months ago and is still not yet complete. In retrospect though, it had actually began many long years ago in the deserts of Arizona. A journey that has, in fact, taken me full circle with a string of events that are continuing to unfold and play themselves out. A destiny of sorts that has now placed me in the high desert of New Mexico, known as the Four Corners Region of the Untied States. As my career came to a close and I neared retirement, so did my desire to not do any more globe trotting. When asked by my IBM colleagues in Amsterdam—where I had been living comfortably for the last 5 years—where I  was planning to retire, my response was always “In Spain, where else?” […]
