Location: Karnes City , Texas, United States
the witness: "The object was round and the bright
light was coming from the center of the bottom of the
UFO. Around the perimeter of the craft was hundreds of
penlight size light beams that alternated in all colors
of the spectrum. Now I know they were laser beams. The
UFO was rising up slowly at first and then went straight
up out of sight in about 10 seconds."

1971 UFO Encounter Over Texas Uranium Mine
summer of 1971, I was working the night shift for Conoco
Oil Co. at an open pit uranium mine west of Karnes City,
was one of 6 people operating Caterpillar 657B earth movers.
We were down to about 210 feet deep when this incident
happened. It was about 11:10 PM , just after shift change
we were getting ready to crank our machines, when the
85 acre pit lit up as if it was daylight. The light was
so bright that I had to squint because it hurt my eyes.
I remember hearing a high pitched hissing noise and the
hair on my arms stood on end. I was so scared, I fell
to the ground and started praying. I remember trying to
look up, but the light was so bright I couldn't. After
about 2 minutes, the light started getting dimmer and
I could finally look up at it. What I saw amazed me. The
object was round and the bright light was coming from
the center of the bottom of the UFO. Around the perimeter
of the craft was hundreds of penlight size light beams
that alternated in all colors of the spectrum. Now I know
they were laser beams. The UFO was rising up slowly at
first and then went straight up out of sight in about
10 seconds. I was crying and shaking and so was everyone
else. The other shift workers thought we were crazy when
we told them what had happened. But we got the last laugh.
This is how we proved it actually happened."
is a vein of uranium ore that runs from George West Texas
to almost Texarkana Texas. When determining where to place
a mine, the following steps are accomplished: (1) A geologist
with a geiger counter flies over the area and finds the
highest radiation reading. (2) Drilling trucks are sent
out and core samples are drilled to determine the highest
concentration of uranium ore. These core samples are drilled
in a grid pattern and every core sample is given a tracking
number and logged in showing the concentration and amount
of uranium present. (3) The open pit mine is then laid
out according to these core samples."
this UFO incident happened, we were about 2 feet away
from a layer of hard rock called the "tap rock"
that laid directly on top of the uranium ore. The uranium
ore varied in depth from 6 to 18 inches and had about
the same brown color as low grade coal. Two days after
this incident, the tap rock was removed to expose the
uranium ore. We were astounded to find that the uranium
ore was now a chalky white substance that had NO radioactivity
at all! There was a 250-foot diameter circle of this chalky
material in the center of the pit."
of the circle, the uranium ore was still as potent as
before the incident. Core samples don't lie. This chalky
material was uranium before this incident."
a night I have laid in my bed thinking about what happened.
I think the UFO needed the uranium for some reason."
