writes: Today is the 63rd anniversary of the so-called Roswell UFO Incident which has brought the author to the question of? Where do UFO's come from? He makes the point that out of all the UFO sightings, there has only been once case where someone has decoded or seen a UFO star map.
A search on the Internet comes up with one particularly legendary place, the double star system Zeta Reticuli. It's nearby, only 39 light-years away in the southern sky.
The naked-eye double star burst into UFO culture in the mid -1970s. An Ohio school teacher, Marjorie Fish, claimed to have decoded a star map from a 1961 UFO abduction case. It pointed to Zeta Reticuli as the aliens' place of origin.
The alleged extraterrestrial kidnapping, described in journalist John Fuller’s book “Incident at Exeter: The Interrupted Journey,” tells how a New England couple was taken aboard a flying saucer and medically examined. Under hypnotic regression the wife, Betty Hill, sketched a star map she said she saw while inside the spaceship.
The author then goes on to debunk this decoded map based on a number of claims and references that Mrs. Fish makes.
This map is legendary but meaningless. First, the Hill drawing contains 25 dots for stars. If you flew around a computer database of the local stellar neighborhood you’d come up with more than one match that roughly “looked” similar to her sketch.
I don't think that you can look at Roswell as either evidence or lack of evidence of UFO's. If you can answer how various ancient civilizations reached the knowledge they did in mathematics, engineering, and celestial would go much further to disprove or prove tge existence of UFO's. There are to many unanswered questions about our own history which could also answer the question about UFO's.
