Looking for UFO’s in Texas

Down in Texas there seems to be a major effort underway to prove the existence of UFO’s. Everyone from small town individuals to the US Air Force is on the lookout for the unidentified flying objects. The budgets certainly vary quite a bit as can be expected.

Take a look at this classic radar dish in Terlingua, Texas. Are these folks onto something? I was trying to figure out the power source and concluded that it must be mercury, mined heavily in this area before the mine ran out in the early 40’s. On a whim I attempted to get wireless internet through this contraption but no luck, maybe the wrong wavelength.

The USAF has a slightly different tactic, go in search of UFO’s with low powered and relatively stealthy blimps. They certainly wouldn’t be able to keep up with UFO’s on speed but maybe the stealth tactics work. I would have asked but the sign somewhat scared me away. I couldn’t even pretend to speak Spanish only as they have their bases covered. Cherie was a little concerned about doing photography here but the Blackhawk helicopters didn’t arrive so I think we’re OK!

Another Terlingua resident is using decoys to attract UFO’s. While this is a known tactic to attract ducks I’m not sure if there is any proof of attracting aliens. Looking around the moonscape here perhaps they already have landed, mistaking southern Texas for an asteroid. Maybe this does work.

Likely the most unusual bait tactic is placing food out as an offering. Three cans of sardines bakin’ in the sun as well as a can of Kipper Snacks. I’m certainly baffled by this but the placement is interesting with the cans being on a North/South heading.

I still haven’t seen any aliens on this trip but will certainly let you know if I do.

    Hi Karen,

    Thanks for stopping by. I’ll certainly let you know if I find any. I’m also on the lookout for tacky UFO ketch, just my style!

    That’s true. I’ve decided I might go back next year and check in with them again, maybe they’re onto something!
