The Kelly-Hopkinsville, KY UFO legend is here now! Thanks to Riddick!

Post by Malaria_Kidd II » 07-04-2017 02:24 AM

100,000 eclipse watchers are projected to visit Christian County Kentucky very soon on August 21, 2017! 11 miles NE of Hoptown is the DIRECT spot to be. The county's rural roads could be clogged and a few locals will have their very own UFO/ET legend in mind THAT DAY :!: And I know it well. :wink:

Ask anybody in Hopkinsville, KY (pop. 33,000) and they'll tell you that this August 21 is an uncanny date for an eclipse to arrive. The people of Christian County have a history of seeing otherworldly objects in the sky that day. :shock:

On August 21, 1955, a blinding light tumbled over rural Kentucky. Billy Ray Taylor, a visitor staying in a packed rural farmhouse a few miles outside of Hopkinsville, was drawing water from a well when he saw the light whisk across the horizon, leaving a contrail of "exhaust all the colors of the rainbow."

Taylor ran into the farmhouse and yammered about having witnessed a UFO. Nobody listened. As suppertime passed, and as dusk crept in, a hound outside began to bay. Taylor and a man named Lucky Sutton grabbed two guns and stepped out to investigate. Outside waited a group of creatures. One eyeballed the men from a tree branch.

It stood two and half feet tall: silver, with spindly legs, pointed ears, a large head, luminescent yellow eyes, and a long talon protruding from its hands. It could float. Sutton and Taylor shot at the creature and scrambled into the house, watching nervously from the window as night fell.

Big golden eyes glowed from the other side. The farmhouse matriarch, Glennie Lankford, shoved her youngest children under the bed as the roof rattled, the sound of claws scraping above. Gunshots rang out. The creature in the window dodged. Then the eyes peered again through the hole.

This game of peekaboo reportedly continued for hours.

Eventually, the family sprinted outside and drove eight miles to Hopkinsville's police headquarters. As the Kentucky New Era reported the next day, the family's distress appeared genuine. "We need help," one of them said. "We've been fighting them for nearly four hours."

Four city police, five state troopers, three deputy sheriffs, and some military police drove to the farm, but when they arrived, nothing was there but a hole in the window and, according to lore, a graveyard of spent shells and casings. After investigating for two hours, authorities found no signs of the creatures.

Today, the "Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter" is a favorite among UFO-philes [PDF]. Explanations range from extraterrestrials to monkeys that escaped from a traveling circus. The FBI's famed investigation into UFOs, Project Blue Book, calls the account a hoax. Paranormal investigator :P Joe Nickell, however, believes the family genuinely saw something: a dusk-loving critter with large yellow eyes, skinny legs, claws, talons, and the power to hover … called the great horned owl. :boba:

Avian or Alien?

Avian or alien, the Kelly-Hopkinsville creature is cheekily celebrated by the town every August 21 with the "Little Green Men Days Festival," a celebration full of arts and crafts booths, cheesy T-shirts, bouncy castles, and excuses to eat fried dough. This year, however, the county is pulling out all the stops for the eclipse. In addition to the Little Green Men Days Festival, there will be a three-day music festival, a mini comic-con, a bluegrass bash, a Kentucky bourbon mashoree, and more than 20 other events, including visits from NASA scientists and a lecture from the director of the Vatican Observatory.

The total economic boost may exceed $30 million.

For some, the coincidence of having the eclipse fall on the same date as a purported extraterrestrial encounter remains too eerie. "I like to say they came to pick up their viewing spot, they just came early," Cook says. "It just gives you the chills!" :lol:

:lol: Joe Nickell will take your wooden nickle! :P

:D Thanks Riddick for bringing this link to my attention on Independence Day. What a great UFO movie that was!

This web page page must be 6 feet long! And the above story linked to Hoptown is way down about 5.5 feet! :mrgreen:

OMG! Hollywood's never made a movie to this date and they likely never will. There's no book to be able to rip off the author, for a decent reward for writing it, for the multi millions a film would generate!

Many thanks for another "super find" Riddick! :D Knowing of this near-by KY legend for years I'd never seen a better explanation than I just viewed! :wink: That ET visit would be as scary as Hadees! :shock:

I was eight years old in 55 and a passenger in Dad's "very slow to go" gasoline powered? cattle trucks running down US Highway 41 South to Hoptown and Nashville, TN. The only weird things I saw out the front *window in our 1948 K-8 International truck, were mainly bad passenger bus drivers! :oops: :lol:

Here's my "one of" vengeful two lane highway pass of a Greyhound bus SAFELY just for Dad! It's on page 6 in Weird News. I still dread the dark pages when my true efforts fade into any forums shadows and the view count slows way down. :P

*Two passengers (tiny cab) could crank out the lower part of the 2 front windshields for more air in hot weather. Of course I got stung one time by a bumble bee coming in PDQ and hitting my tummy under the open glass! :oops: At age 10 in 1958 we went from Evansville IN to New Haven, CT with a double decked load of hogs to Swift Packing Company. What a trip that was and an adventure for me to boot! 8) That ole dependable K-8 made the total 2K miles trip up to New England and back to SW Indiana just fine under Dad's safe guidance. :D


:oops: Been up all night again and it's time to close or I'll end up in left field asleep.......... :sleepy: :mrgreen:

July 29, 2017! :shock:

Art was hosting Dan Aykroyd and David Sereda and if you are a Coast Insider IT IS a must listen! For three full hours it WAS riveting ET talk, and giant UFO's! In 1994 the Space Shuttle's outer cams caught many giant disc shaped craft, each with it's edge notched one time, and with a hole in the middle of each! :o

David's seen the exclusive NASA footage and he said the multiple 2-3 mile wide craft sat out there watching as they all seemed fascinated by the shuttle's 12 mile long, bright white drifting tether! The tether broke as the crew were deploying a satellite. I say the only thing you remember is the broken tether with it's lost satellite and there was no mention of what the shuttle's astronauts saw "out there!" :o

:D During their amazing conversations Dan Akroyd mentioned the "Hopkinsville Incident" :!:

Stop in to let us know if you heard "Somewhere In Time" with Art Bell last Saturday night. :wink: OMG!

OK Riddick many, many thanks again. Does your favorite seat have an edge that will support your weight. If not find another more sturdy seating source! :shock:

:lol:

Take time to make time for that folks! You won't be disappointed as we never were with Art Bell on the radio!

:shock: :lol: fos, let's hope he does not read your post! :oops:

Here's a UFO that has a notch in the back as it flies by US troops on patrol in Afghanistan!

Is this real or photo shopped :?:



My quote above reads:

The craft depicted above the soldiers was not so big but it has a notch easily seen and that's comparable to the Space Shuttles pics as described by David Sereda. :ufo:
