The above image came out pixalated like this; except it was more of a black dot. Immediately became pixalated when I tried to get a closer look by zooming in. I took it with a funky digital camera; a cheapo I bought on sale a few years ago at Radio Shack.
When I took the picture, I was just randomly taking shots of the sky. A few birds up there, but that was it. I didn’t see anything unusual in the sky at all; no UFOs, oddly shaped planes or craft, etc. (And I’m always hoping, of course!)
Got home, uploading the images. And this pixalated thing showed up. I’ve tried to get a clearer image; changing size, color, ratio, and so on but nothing. And I’m no camera expert, by any means.
So if anyone has any idea what this is — and my mind is going towards a cloaked craft of some kind, although, don’t get excited, it’s likely a government monitoring device — I welcome your opinions.
At long last, the annual UFO conference line-up in McMinnville has been announced. And it’s a good one! George Knapp, my favorite “MSM” UFO reporter and C2C host, will be a presenter. As will Nick Pope, Linda Moultan Howe, and abductee/contactee Jim Sparks.
We’re already booked, but I was sad to find Comfort Inn booked solid, so we ended up in another chain motel, one which does not have the best of reviews. Staying at Hotel Oregon got old — while their rooftop bar is wonderful, and the place itself worth visiting for its overall joyful vibe and neat artwork everywhere, staying in their cramped rooms is not for me. Sharing a bath with someone was not a good experience either; creepy sloppy drunks hogging up the bathroom, making all kinds of noise, and leaving it a mess — gross. And management didn’t give a damn. Service was surreal — one wait person, a woman, actually said to us “Do you want to make something out of it?” when we complained about the half hour wait and cold — I mean, ice cold — food. Oh well. Still a good place to hang out and have one of their great beers.
Back to the conference. Looking forward to this one! We didn’t go last year, first one we missed in about five years. So am glad to know I’ll be returning this year.

Just when one might think the case of the keening glowing metal boxes is over, well, not yet.
At the annual Yachats art fair, artist Leo D’Alessandro will present a metal box:
<span style=”font-style: italic;”>“Since the Mayan prophecy for this year of 2012 is expected to bring the dawn of a new era – a year of transformation for our planet – what better way for me to share my visions of the Mayans than with the metal box I salvaged from our beach.” </span>
<span style=”font-style: italic;”>I know the mention of having one of these mysterious boxes involved is exciting. It’s just right, I feel, to compliment my Mayan theme for the work I present this year.”</span></blockquote>

Tying the metal box into Mayan prophecy — wow. As an artist myself, I recognize opportunistic pretentious b.s. when I hear it. (example: his art is
Maybe I’m being too snarky. I don’t know the artist, or have seen his work. I’ll try to make it to the art show if I can.
There’s also the “hybrid” — another artist, simply named “Pam,” has made a film that contains a woman who’s told her she is a hybrid:
<i>am says the one woman claims to be a “hybrid,” and is questioned by an older local woman. Pam says she shot the “hybrid” female (someone who claims to have alien origins) slightly out of focus.</i></blockquote>
The McMinnville UFO Fest returns this May. Speakers lined up include Donald R. Schmitt, (Friday night’s speaker) author of UFO Crash at Roswell, etc. and hypnotist Yvonne Smith, (Saturday morning) who’s worked with abductees. The third speaker has not yet been decided.
I’m mildly interested in Smith, but, unless the as yet unannounced speaker is someone way groovy, I don’t think I’ll go this year. The expense vs. the line-up doesn’t even out.
But if you decide to go, have fun! The rooftop bar at Hotel Oregon and the parade are worth the visit, as is exploring the unique interior of the old hotel. More info here.
Found this on the Eugene Craigslist. A report of a UFO sighting, posted Dec. 21. Location: 18th and Pearl, which is approximately two miles from me. Impossible to say if this is valid, a prank, or what, but here it is:
I just saw a UFO hovering over South Eugene. It appeared around 10:30 PM. I was driving to the store this evening and when I turned on to 18th I saw a bright light hovering just above me, very close, extremely bright. I stopped my car and watched it bobble back & forth a bit. It was very bright and made no sound. It hovered in small circles for about 5 min. and then the light slowly dimmed. After it dimmed I could see a black silhouette moving slowly away until it disappeared. After it was gone I stopped someone walking who had also seen it and was just as amazed as I was. THIS IS NO WAY THIS WAS A PLANE OR A HELICOPTER. Did anyone else see this from another angle? or catch anything else?
* Location: 18th & Pearl
* it’s ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
And I missed it! Damn, hate it when that happens. Right here in Eugene, or, technically, not Eugene proper but Junction City, 12 miles from here. Man sees many colored lights in the sky. Comments at the site include someone from Cottage Grove, about 30 miles to the south, who had a sighting. More here.
I’ve begun a new project. Not sure yet how I’ll end up doing this; interactive, as Nancy Birnes suggested, e-book, Kindle, self-publish, blog, pay per installment…so many options. I think, however, that it will be in a sort of journal format, fairly traditional in terms of publishing (e-book/Kindle/self, or through a publisher) with segments posted here at The Orange Orb.
So here it is, working title: Entering the Orb: A Couple’s Journey into Missing Time, Screen Memories and UFOs.
Jim and I have decided, spontaneously and independently of each other, to go through some kind of regression and retrieval process to find out what happened during our missing time experiences. We’ve agreed that we would not share what we found out about our own experiences until all the work has been done. We don’t know yet if we would see different people, or the same person. If we saw the same person, there’s the possibility that person would be unconsciously influenced by the both of us. Than again, maybe not.
A lot of this is absolutely trust based. How can we prove to others that we’re telling the truth when we say we won’t discuss with each other what’s been discovered, until it’s all done? We can’t.
There’s also a large issue of vulnerability here. Some possible causes for the missing time episodes are obvious — as in, oh my god they really were Reptilian Overlords. Other reasons concern memory. As you’ll see in my next post, Jim and I have very different memories of one of our missing time events. Clearly, one of us is wrong. So why the difference in memories? And if it turns out the cause for missing time isn’t UFO related, alien related or some other esoteric or metaphysical cause, then what, and why? Are we unstable? Did someone drug us? (If so, why, and that’s certainly scary on its own.) I could handle any of those, (I think) but what I don’t think I could handle is the possibly we made it all up. Unintentionally of course, but made up nonetheless. If that is so, why in the world would we do so? That in itself is intriguing.
