At the heart of the mystery of the flying saucers

Georges Adamski's Venusian

Mount Palomar, California, has the most beautiful observatory in the world. The sky is particularly clear, and astronomers find the best conditions for observing the stars. Georges Adamski, a modest trader of Palomar Gardens, on the side of the mountain, 17 kms from the observatory, is only an amateur astronomer. But night and day with his telescope, he scans the sky. He firmly believes in flying saucers. He even managed to take photographs. At least he believes he recognizes these mysterious objects on his shots. But he was going to have a much brighter revelation of planetary craft. Listen to him: "It was around 12:30 p.m., on Thursday, November 20, 1952, that I first entered in personal contact with a man from another world." This is how Adamski begins the narrative of this extraordinary encounter. He had gone with friends to Desert Center above Blythe, California, and soon after 12 o'clock the four people saw a splendid cigar-shaped "spacecraft" over the mountains. And when it veered silently and disappeared behind the mountain. Adamski then had the intuition that this ship had come to meet him, and that a saucer was waiting for him a bit farther: "Let someone drive me down the road, quick," he shouted, excitedly, and soon he was installed with his 6-inch telescope and his Brownie Kodak, at the place chosen by him.

He then begged his friends to leave, while continuing to observe what was to happen. A few minutes later, his attention was attracted by a small saucer that disappeared behind a rocky spur. A few moments later he saw a man on the bottom of a ravine who was beckoning him to approach. Two things struck him when he was a few feet from the individual: his pants resembled ski pants, his hair was long and wavy. Smaller than Adamski, about 1m65, he also looked younger, and above all, of almost unreal beauty, with the hands of an artist with tapered fingers, a radiant smile on his face. Adamski was then convinced that he was not in the presence of an earthly creature! The space being had a round face, a high forehead, gray-green eyes, slightly bridled, a small nose finely chiseled, his skin slightly tanned and his face as smooth as that of a child. His dress was of a single piece, of a chocolate-brown color. A 20 cm wide belt surrounded his waist and a lighter braid of about 3 cm, bordered the belt. There were no buttons, no buckles, no staples, no pockets, no seams. At the feet, the mysterious visitor wore shoes with rising stems, of an extremely flexible material.

At first frozen in stupor. Adamski soon tried to enter into conversation with him. This did not go without difficulty.
