UFO FLYING SAUCER - FIRST
SIGHTING DESCRIBED NEAR BELLINGHAM WA
The Acronym "UFO" to
describe flying saucers was first used by a Captain in the U.S. Air
Force while investigating UFO's for Project Bluebook. Before Capt.
Edward J. Ruppelt coined unidentified flying objects as UFO's they
were called everything from Flying Discs, Unexplained Flying Discs,
or Flying Flapjacks.
Today it is common for Alien Spacecrafts to
be referred to as UFO's. Bellingham Washington, which often finds
itself thrust into notoriety for its infamous former residents
and/or visitors such as the hillside strangler and the DC shooters,
is also notable for another kind of visitor--Flying Saucers.
FLYINC SAUCERS & PIE PLATES?
In the summer of 1947 only a few weeks before the famous Roswell
Flying Saucer incident, a small plane pilot, Kenneth Arnold, while
helping in a search effort for a downed plane, reported seeing nine flying objects travelling at high speed.
He first described them as being like mirrors or shiny pie
plates, and while many accounts of the incident report that Arnold saw the
Unidentified craft over Mt. Rainer he first saw them flying over
Mt. Baker east of Bellingham Washington and he then witnessed them
skip like skipping saucers over water at speeds estimated to be
well over 1,000 miles per hour. (A reporter then described
Arnold's account as flying saucers).
Arnold stated that it took the objects
1 minute 42 seconds to travel between Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainer
which would put their speed at 1,700 miles per hour. The Flying
Saucers then sped off into the distance as he continued his flight
to Yakima. When wave after wave of newspaper reported the news of flying
saucers skipping across Western Washington skies, the phrase
"Flying Saucers" was born.
The Only Place In Bellingham You Are Likely To See Flying Saucers Is
In The Movie Theater
Bellingham Movie Theaters
The now closed Sehome Village Movie Theaters building is now
available but the new occupant must agree not to use it for a movie
theater. Perhaps the old theaters could be made into handball courts
or auto repair bays?

Over Washington State Skies
Washington State has had its share of UFO's buzzing overhead
and stories of light balls chasing people. One of which that
took place in the 1930's was described as a Mile-Wide craft
with a triangular reflecting mirrored bottom that reflected
the ground on it and there were small balls of light
that emerged from it and chased onlookers.
recently Yakima has become notorious for UFO's and strange
phenomenon with more sightings per person than any other
spot in the USA according to Popular Mechanics magazine.
Yakima is home to military training zones which is likely to
be one of the reasons for so much UFO activity.
Are the unidentified flying objects simply experimental
aircraft, helicopters or drones or are the activities at the
military ranges drawing the interest of other UFOs that are
not of this earth? In addition to reports of
unidentified objects there have been reports of black
helicopters buzzing over the ECETI ranch disturbing its
pony-tailed inhabitants. ECETI stands for "Enlightened
Contact With Extra Terrestrial Intelligence".

Hidden Cell Towers?
Throughout Bellingham neighborhoods there are hidden cell
towers peeking out over businesses and between homes. These
hidden towers broadcast and intercept cellphone voice and
text messages and are able to pinpoint your cell phone's
location within a 30 foot rage of accuracy. Have you ever
wondered about the strange flag poles you have seen around
Bellingham that seem too fat or out of the ordinary? Hidden
inside these strategically placed towers are high tech
microwave and cell antennas facing in multiple directions.
Hidden cell towers have been packed into other unassuming
structures and signs as well. Some cell towers have
been hidden in large pine trees, fir trees, windmills,
church steeples, palm trees, and of course, flag poles.
