“John Smith,” retired USAF Crew Chief from Altus AFB, Oklahoma,
describing 1996 encounter in Altamonte Springs, FLA
Florida resident, “John Smith,” encountered this same type of being
sketched from the January 20, 1996, UFO crash with several other live
alien beings in Varginha, Brazil. Also in 1996, this type of being
shot a sparkling ball of light at Mr. Smith and he went unconscious
in his Altamonte Springs, Florida, bedroom.
Varginha, Brazil, is about 175 air miles northwest of Rio de Janeiro.
May 5, 2016 Deltona, Florida – Twenty years ago on January 20, 1996, at 3:30 PM in the afternoon, three young women were walking together across a vacant lot in Varginha, Brazil, when they saw a strange, humanoid crouched down with red glowing eyes. Its most remarkable feature was the top of the head. It appeared divided into three sections in which three long ridges rose above the head surface.

The two teenagers and 22-year-old were so frightened that they took off running without stopping for nearly a mile all the way home.
Varginha is a busy, active city of some 120,000 people and this very complicated case involved many eyewitness testimonies over several weeks. Residents kept reporting seeing these odd beings with the three long, raised ridges on top of their heads. At least one was allegedly shot dead by a Brazilian military or state police unit.

175 air miles northwest of Rio de Janeiro. The climate and hills make Varginha
one of the world’s major centers for coffee production.

Same Type of Varginha Being Described
in Altamonte Springs, Florida, 1996
What no one knew is that a long way north from Varginha, Brazil, in the town of Altamonte Springs, Florida — also in 1996 — a retired U. S. Air Force crew chief encountered what he says was an alien being with a head that had three long raised ridges the same as the Varginha beings in the Southern Hemisphere that year.
He has asked me to keep his identity confidential and to simply call him “John Smith.” He served at Altus AFB, Oklahoma, in 1986 as a crew chief on the KC-135 tanker. His mechanical work on airplane engines would explain why in a later encounter with aliens, his top question would be: What is your method of propulsion?
But before he tells about his shocking encounter with the Varginha-type alien in his Florida bedroom, we’ll go back in time to 1989 to 1991, when he was in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to serve his military reserve requirements at Peterson Air Force Base. In November 1991 at around 1 AM, he saw his first, large, completely silent triangular aircraft moving very slowly in the night sky seeming to camouflage itself with pale bluish tinted lights like the surrounding stars. He thought it was very low to the ground at maybe only 250 feet altitude, skulking along as if not wanting to be observed. Its direction was going south towards Fort Carson Army Base.
Fort Carson is 7.4 miles south of Colorado Springs. Peterson AFB is 8.2 miles east of
Colorado Springs. NORAD’s Cheyenne Mountain complex is 3 miles west of Fort Carson.
Academy Blvd. is between Fort Carson and Colorado Springs.
As the big, silent, triangular aircraft flew low over his house in Colorado Springs, he stood at a window in awe and could clearly see 3-dimensional structure of geometric shapes underneath. He told me, “It was just completely out of this world.” He was even scared of what he was seeing and did not want to go outside to watch.

flying about 250 feet above his Colorado Springs, Colorado, house
when he was in USAF Reserves for Peterson AFB after retiring from active
duty as USAF Crew Chief in Altus AFB, Oklahoma.
Not long after that, he and his family could not understand why electrical gadgets in their house would go on and off on their own. Soon, the family would see another triangular aircraft when they went Christmas shopping and were returning home on Academy Boulevard between Colorado Springs and Fort Carson.
“John Smith,” retired USAF Crew Chief from Altus AFB, Oklahoma, now living in Deltona, Florida: “And then we started having lights going on and off in the house one night two weeks later and I told her (his wife) about it and we had a microwave beeping by itself. Something was causing electrical to go on around here and I don’t get it. I attribute it to UFO because I’ve seen the movie, Close Encounters, and how things happen.
We had Christmas lights on at the time and they weren’t even plugged in, but going off and on. After we had electrical problems that night, we went out and had to do Christmas shopping. On our way back, we saw the second craft. At first, I saw it in the distance and we were headed on Academy Boulevard south back home and I saw what looked like a helicopter sitting still.
The closer we got and at a stoplight I’m looking underneath the thing and it’s sitting right about 200 to 250 feet above the ground on an open lot right next to a Wendy’s restaurant. My daughter saw it and I saw it and my wife saw it and it just sat there motionless. No sound. It had three lights in (each) corner, a red light in the middle and a blue light in the front right on top.
IS THIS IN PETERSON AFB, COLORADO SPRINGS?
Yeah, it was in Colorado Springs. We saw it right off the main road at Academy Boulevard. I asked my daughter, ‘Rachel, what does that look like to you?’
She looked up — she is just 8 years old and she said, ‘Daddy, that looks like a big triangle.’
I said, ‘Yeah, you are absolutely right. That’s exactly what it is.’
So, she was amazed by it. My wife was totally dumbfounded. She couldn’t believe it.
“John Smith’s” Vivid Dream of Strange Humanoids
“The propulsion is when he (humanoid) showed me a light — a pure white light.”
SO WHEN IS THE NEXT EXPERIENCE THAT YOU HAVE THAT GIVES YOU AN ENCOUNTER WITH NON-HUMANS?
OK, shortly after that, I think it was about a month or two later, I had what I thought was a dream, but it was very vivid, like I was right there. And I was on a craft that looked like a circular room. The people in it were hybrid-looking. They looked human, but kind of alien and kind of not. I can’t really describe it. Their heads were bigger and the eyes are farther apart. Other than that, they looked human. I remember one that had kind of orangish-blondish hair. I can’t really remember the eyes. My biggest question was: What was your method of propulsion?
WHAT ANSWER DID YOU GET ABOUT THE PROPULSION?
Well, the propulsion is when he showed me a light — a pure white light. And they said, ‘This is our method of propulsion.’
WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ANSWER OF THE BRIGHT, WHITE LIGHT TO BE?
Oh, that’s a good question! I really can’t say for sure (laughs). I’ve thought about it, what the light represents. I have no idea. It’s some pure energy or force.
March 29, 2016, Mystery Booms
and Copper Pennies Laid Out in Arrow?
DID YOU HAVE ANY MORE ENCOUNTERS WITH BEINGS?
Well, I had something very strange happen just recently. I found some pennies laid out on my master bedroom floor. It was six pennies in a triangle with three pennies behind it. I don’t know how that came to be. I just know I walked in to go to bed one night and there it was on the floor. And I’ve got pictures of it, too.

the bed, reminding him of the Varginha-type entity next to his wife’s side of the bed in 1996,
the same being that shot a ball of light at Mr. Smith’s chest that caused unconsciousness.

But I just get a strong sense of something is going to happen. For some odd reason, those pennies were laid out. After I had emailed you about the booms we have been hearing in Deltona, Florida, the booms I heard were from the direction of Ocala National Forest.
First email on March 29, 2016, from “John Smith” about mysterious loud booms
coming from direction of Ocala National Forest, Florida, the nine pennies laid out
on his bedroom reminding him of the Varginha-type entity next to his wife’s side
of the bed in 1996, and Mr. Smith’s sense that “something is going to happen.”
HOW FAR AWAY? AND YOUR IMPRESSION OF WHAT MIGHT BE HAPPENING?
Well, they have a Naval bombing range supposedly in the middle of Ocala National Forest. That’s about an hour and a half away from where I live, so when I heard these booms recently, they were pretty strong and I can’t understand how something that far away could rattle the windows, especially with my neighbors outside and they said, ‘I don’t know what that was!’
You know, we don’t have them very often and I just can’t believe that unless it was an airburst of some type because I don’t think that just any type of bomb going off could reach this far away.

Navy’s Pinecastle Bombing range at Camp Ocala is about 35 miles northwest of
“John Smith’s” home in Deltona, Florida.
WHAT TIME DID YOU HEAR THE BOOMS?
The booms were at 10 o’clock in the morning. There were three booms between 10 AM and 10:18 AM, if I remember correctly in the email I sent you.
YES, I’M LOOKING AT THE EMAIL RIGHT NOW. IT WAS MARCH 29TH, 2016, BETWEEN 10 AM AND 10:18 AM EASTERN, AND THAT THE BOOMS CAUSED YOUR HOUSE TO SHAKE.
Yes, you could hear it and feel it.
‘THE WEATHER WAS CLEAR AND SUNNY.”
“ALL OF YOUR NEIGHBORS HEARD THIS.”
‘THEY WERE OUTSIDE LOOKING TO SEE WHAT HAD HAPPENED.”
WHAT DID YOU DO?
Well, I tried to pinpoint it after I heard the first (of the ) three when I was in the house. After the second one (boom) I heard, I was feeling the house (shake). And then I went out front and my neighbor saw me and said, ‘I don’t know what that was.’ I said, ‘Yeah, I don’t know what it was either,’ and I went back inside the house. Then the last one (boom) went off and I heard it in the northwest direction. That would be towards Ocala National Forest.
Seems to me if they were doing any kind of bombing, it would carry on longer and more often.
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVE FELT INTUITIVELY THAT MIGHT BE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THESE STRANGE BOOMS THAT YOU HEARD ON MARCH 29TH AND THE UFO/E.T. PHENOMENA IN YOUR LIFE?
That triangular pattern of pennies that looked like an arrow — it’s telling me that ‘Hey, this is not bombing. This is Us (aliens).’ That’s the feeling I got when I saw that. A triangular craft.
WHEN YOU SAY ‘US,’ YOU MEAN WHATEVER INTELLIGENCE IS IN THE TRIANGULAR CRAFT THAT HAS THE STRANGE BLUE LIGHT AND MAKES NO SOUND?
Right. I think They are affecting something like these booms. And They are wanting people to look — or something. That’s how I feel about it.
My sense is that They are traveling in and out of our atmosphere and I think it’s trying to make us more aware of their presence.
Do you want to hear about the one that shot me? (laughs)
Varginha-Type Being Shoots Ball
of Light At “John Smith” in 1996
OK, this was in 1996, in Altamonte Springs, Florida (10 miles north of Orlando).
Altamonte Springs, Florida, is 10 miles north of Orlando, and 62 miles
northwest of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
I went to bed before 10 o’clock at night. And I have a bad habit of waking up all the time at night. And so I happened to wake up (around 1 AM) and look over towards the side where my wife was sleeping and I saw this dark figure standing about 3.5 to 4 feet tall standing on the side of her bed. So, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
So, I looked at it looking over her. I see a dark figure standing in front of the plant where it hangs on the corner of the room on her side near the headboard. I see It (alien) blocking the plant and It’s solid. I see three protrusions on its head.
Illustration by “John Smith” of the 1996 Altamonte Springs, Florida, experience with the
Varginha-like entity in silhouette next to his wife (not depicted) and a hanging plant where the
being appeared solid and “partially blocked view of plant.” Mr. Smith woke up on the opposite
side of the bed staring in shock at the 3-bump-headed being and finally lunged at it. That’s when
the being shot Mr. Smith with a ball of light that knocked Mr. Smith unconscious until sunrise.
At the time, he had never heard about the Varginha, Brazil, case of a crashed UFO and
several alien entities described by various eyewitnesses that had three long ridges in their heads.
And I sit up in the bed staring at this thing for a good ten seconds, thinking, ‘Alright, what is this?’ It’s nothing I’ve ever seen before the way of the shape of its head and how small it is.
So, once I realized it’s real, I lunged at it to grab it. I’m thinking, ‘The fight’s on! I’ve got an intruder in my house.’
I go to lunge at it — it shoots at me. And this ball of light hits me square in the chest. And it was a white ball of light with different colors in it. And it turned me off like a light switch!
WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
Like it knocked me out, like it turned off all electrical power to my body. That’s what it felt like.
ARE YOU CONSCIOUS? ARE YOU STILL ABLE TO LOOK OUT YOUR EYES?
No, I blacked out, but I could actually feel I was still conscious, but not aware of anything. I don’t know how to describe it. I’m conscious, but wanting to try and move and do what I can and I can’t do anything. All I feel is myself falling. And it seems like it took an eternity to fall back down on the bed. So, once I finally felt like I hit the bed and hit the pillow, that’s when I woke up and it was morning.
WOW! YOU WERE JUST LOOKING AT THE BEING WITH THE THREE BUMPS ON ITS HEAD. DID THIS BEING RAISE ANY ARMS SO THAT YOU SAW SOME KIND OF TECHNOLOGY?
No, I didn’t see anything. He might have had something already raised and prepared for me. I think it was waiting to see what I would do before It would do anything. And once I tried to lunge at it, I think that’s when it shot me.
NOW, IN THE MORNING, WHAT DID YOUR WIFE SAY?
Well, I woke up and I told her about it. She was very open to it and she believed it happened to me. But what is REALLY STRANGE is when I got up and had to go to the bathroom.
Needle-Like Thin Parallel Lines Down
Both Sides of Rib Cage and On Leg
I found needle-like claw marks all down my sides and on my leg. And there were welts and they started to bleed when I got up. [Unfortunately, no photographs.]
HOW MUCH DID THEY BLEED?
Drops of blood all the way down.
DID THEY HURT?
No, they only hurt when they started bleeding.
HOW OFTEN DID THEY BLEED?
Just that one time.
SO, IT WAS ONLY IN THE BEGINNING GETTING OUT OF BED THAT THESE THIN PIN-LIKE SCRATCHES ALONG BOTH OF YOUR SIDES BLED?
That’s correct. They didn’t bleed until after I went to the bathroom. Then I started looking at them and they started bleeding.
HOW LONG WERE THESE SCRATCHES ON YOUR BODY?
I would say at least a week. They went away!
Matches Bedroom Entity
to Varginha, Brazil, Alien of January 1996
There was one thing I did do. I did an internet search and I never saw a being looking like that. I just thought, ‘OK, let’s see what the different types of beings there are as far as aliens.’
And I found out that the being I saw was actually reported in Brazil where they were chasing Them around and the villagers or somebody in that country saw them running around. They looked like what I saw.
Left: Close up on 3-bump-head by “John Smith” from his 1996 Altamonte Springs,
Florida, bedroom encounter with the being that shot Mr. Smith with a light that
knocked him unconscious. Right: January 20, 1996, Varginha, Brazil alien being
illustration by Thomas Feiner based on eyewitness encounter of three young girls.
Yep, and that’s not all of it either. I also had investigated and looked to see when I looked down at the carpet, it had a spot that was bleached out with multi-colors in it. And it had purple, red, green and was the same size as the ball that hit me in the chest. I don’t know where that bleach came from, but it was exactly where It (alien) stood.
DO YOU STILL HAVE THAT CARPET?
DID YOUR WIFE HAVE ANY MEMORY OR DREAM THAT SHE HAD INTERACTED WITH THIS BEING WITH THE THREE BUMPS (HEAD RIDGES)?
No. She told me nothing happened. She had no marks on her like I did.
DID YOU HAVE ANY VIVID DREAM AFTER THIS THAT WOULD EXPLAIN WHAT THIS CHARACTER WITH THE THREE BUMPS WAS? AND WHY IT WAS THERE?
BUT WHY WAS THIS BEING IN YOUR BEDROOM IN ALTEMONTE SPRINGS, FLORIDA, IN 1996, RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR WIFE AND YOU WAKE UP AND IT ATTACKS YOU WITH A BALL OF LIGHT THAT DISCONNECTS YOU FROM BEING ABLE TO FUNCTION. AND IN THE MORNING, YOU HAVE THESE PIN-THIN SCRATCHES ON BOTH SIDES OF YOUR BODY?
The only thing I can attribute to anything is that there is something about me that they need to know something about, and I don’t know what it is. That’s my impression.
ARE YOU HYBRID THAT IS HUMAN AND E.T.?
(laughs) Who knows? I really can’t say.
WHAT IS YOUR IMPRESSION OF THE BEING?
Really all I can gather from this is that this phenomena that people are experiencing is true! It’s for real!”
