In 2008, around 11 PM on April 12th, a strange occurrence happened in the night skies above the
quiet little town of McCloud, a popular vacation retreat nestled on the southern side of Mt. Shasta.
A giant, glowing jellyfish pulsating with fire was seen eerily hovering over the town before launching off in a north-easterly direction and vanishing.
Dick Cary, a lifelong resident and employee of the McCloud Community Services District, looked up through binoculars and reported seeing a brightly-lit,
flying object that silently hovered over his house above tree level for almost five minutes, then "quickly disappeared towards the east".
"I really don't believe in flying saucers, but I do know that something weird was happening," Cary said. "It looked like a giant jellyfish with a fire
inside it. There were no canisters or anything...nothing. Just a fire inside it, and there was no noise at all."

Cary phoned his son in law and daughter who live on Broadway Ave. in McCloud and told them to go outside and look. Their response: "Holy cow, there's something
"It looked to me as if something was burning in the sky," said Cary's son in law. "My wife and I both saw it. There was no noise at all. It was
the first time I ever saw something like that."
Cary's son in law said it also quickly disappeared to the east.
A few blocks away, Owen "Shorty" Long, also saw a bright light around 11 PM on April 12th in the Squaw Valley Mobile Home Park.
Long said: "I noticed a bright light outside my window. That just didn't look right to me so I got up to investigate.
It was moving real slow. No features were visible as I recall, just a triangular configuration of lights.
I can't be sure of the size, it was up quite high. I remember red and yellow colors, but it seems there was another color. I can't be sure."
Long said he went inside his house to get his son, and the light was gone when he returned.
"I found out later from the guys who live across from me, they saw something identical to what I had seen, coming from the western horizon," Long said.
"This was after I went back in the house. They said it was really bright, blinked a few times, and it too disappeared. It was really exciting for me."
Dick Cary said he first observed the light towards the east as he and his wife were driving home and made a right turn off Main St. onto Colombero.
"My wife and I talked about it but we couldn't explain what we were seeing," he said. "A few minutes later when we arrived home to our residence on Shasta Avenue,
I ran out to the garage and got my binoculars. It was over our house and moving slowly in the direction of Haul Road."
Suddenly, he said the light "took off real fast in a big curve in a north-easterly direction, going high into the sky and just disappeared. My wife and I were
in awe at what we had just seen."
Cary said after his wife went back inside the house, he noticed another light coming from the direction of Hoo Hoo Park.
He said the object, which he estimated at about 10 feet in diameter, stopped right over the top of his house.
After remaining above his house for several minutes, Cary said it moved in the direction of Haul Road, hovered a few minutes and appeared to take the same
north easterly path as the other light and disappeared.
"It was unbelievable," he said. "If it had come down, it would come down right on top of our house. My wife was never a believer in anything like that...
she is now. She didn't sleep at all that night."

Not Of This World Relics Hidden From Public View For Many Years -
Forgotten And Ignored
Many of out-of-place relics have been hidden from public view for many years because they do not fit the traditional model of human prehistory.
According to this model based on evolutionary time scale, they are out-of-place because they predate human evolution.
Often forgotten and ignored, they still prove evolution theory false showing human existence much further back into Earth's history...
Out-Of-Place Artifact With DNA "Not Similar"
To Anything Ever Found On Earth
In the 30s of the twentieth century, a genuine, 900-year-old bone skull was discovered in an abandoned mine tunnel near Mexico's Copper Canyon.
It was very different and until now is a subject of scientific interest and debate regarding both the unusual shape and properties of the bone.
The Starchild skull does not resemble any of the skulls earlier analyzed by scientists. It represents something never seen before by science.
Is the Starchild Skull an "alien" artifact, which means foreign to normal human genetics - as we know it, or definitely not from planet Earth?
