Recently, I took a few days off and I went to visit Needles California, about a 7 hour drive from my home in Gallup, New Mexico. I have been anxious to return to the tri-state area of California, Arizona, and Nevada along the Colorado River ever since I heard news reports of a UFO crash near Needles in May of 1998.
Witnesses report that a large turquoise object plowed into the earth West of the Colorado River, not far from Needles. Eyewitnesses say that after the crash a bunch of helicopters appeared to haul it away. Witnesses also report strange visits and questioning from "Men in Black" types after the crash.
Well, I didn't find the mystery craft or any evidence of it. I wasn't expecting to find anything. I just wanted to look over the area.
Interestingly, however, I did become aware of something that might offer a bit of a clue to the mystery crash.
The Nazca Lines in Peru are well known all over the world. They are geometric and animal shapes that appear engraved into the surface of the Nazca desert. The lines and figures appear over a 300 mile radius and they can only be deciphered by flying over the lines.
Strangely, the Desert Southwest United States has geoglyphs (also known as Intaglios) that are found along the terraces of the Colorado River, many north of Blythe California. Over two hundred of these images have been discovered along the Colorado River from Nevada to the Gulf of California.
"...According to Mohave and Quechan tribes of the lower Colorado River area, the human figures represent Mastamho, the Creator of Earth and all life. The animal figures represent Hatakulya, one of two mountain lions/persons who helped in the Creation. In ancient times, sacred ceremonial dances were held in the area to honor the Creator of life..."
Intaglios-Geoglyphs in the Desert
Native tribes throughout the Southwest have left historic rock art called petroglyphs that give us a glimpse into tribal life, customs, and spirituality.
Instead, geoglyphs, like the ones found in the Southwest Desert, can only be determined by looking at them from the sky. The Intaglios in the American Southwest were discovered by an Army Air Corps pilot flying overhead in 1931. Before that time, the Intaglios were only known by the Native tribes of the area.
Why are these desert lines made so that you can only view them from the sky?
Certainly the native peoples of the southwest didn't have craft to see them. But, maybe they were signaling those that could see their art. Many Native tribes have stories of their star origins. Possibly these supposed "myths" have some connection to the truth of ancient interactions from star visitors.
During my time in New Mexico I have seen several strange UFO sightings. I have also been told by Navajos of their sightings and listened to their reports of possible abductions among their family and friends.
I am sure these sightings and visitations have gone on for many hundreds if not thousands of years. The desert tribes along the Colorado River likely had some interaction also with these alien or interdenominational craft.
Perhaps the recent UFO crash in Needles has something to do with an ancient and continued visitation of these "star"crafts in the Desert Southwest. Occasionally our ET visitors have problems, for whatever reason, and crash. I am sure Roswell wasn't the first UFO crash and it won't be the last. The Needles California crash could have been a government test gone wrong or it could have been a crash from an ET civilization that has been visiting the Southwest for a very long time.
My heart tells me that the desert Indians that created these fantastic geoglyphs were doing more than creating an art that no one could see. They were certainly celebrating creation and their creation stories with their geoglyphs. But, perhaps, they were also sending messages to the "star" visitors that they were welcome in their lands, lands that cannot be seen by an observer from ground level, cannot be understood from the ground, or even from viewing them from nearby mountains.
