Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook

Well, we like to dig a little for each post we do. We already knew Stan Gordon's background was more UFO than Bigfoot, but we were pretty disappointed when we went to his website and his Bigfoot page was empty with only a message saying, "Bigfoot Corner. More about the local Bigfoot phenomenon will be here soon." dated August 16, 2009. Maybe his site is a work in progress. Regardless, Roger Marsh, the editor of Gordon's newest book, Silent Invasion, is drumming up some press and has penned an article for the The article is reprinted in full below.

Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook
Roger Marsh, UFO Examiner
( November 2nd, 2010 6:55 pm ET) -- The next best thing to having your own UFO sighting or paranormal experience is to walk in the investigator's shoes.

UFO and Bigfoot researcher Stan Gordon has been on the investigation trail now since the UFO crash at Kecksburg on December 9, 1965 - and with an incredible stash of eye witness testimony.

Gordon released the book - Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook - with myself as Editor, October 30, 2010.

The book is like an investigator's log as it takes you through a literal "invasion" of both UFOs and the Bigfoot creature over about a one-year period - from 1973 to 1974. The contents are structured so that you can read through short pieces on individual cases as they were being reported.

While there were plenty of UFO sightings prior to 1973, and while the entire state of Pennsylvania - and the region - can lay claim to continued sightings - ground zero was surely Westmoreland County in southwestern Pennsylvania where most of the activity was taking place.

My own personal UFO encounter and what we believe was a Bigfoot encounter - both occurred in Westmoreland County where I grew up. At age 16, it was a curious time. I had stood 30 feet from a disc-shaped UFO.

This was a very intense time for Gordon as an investigator - and knowing the author, I'm not sure he would actually want to go through it again. In this era, UFO investigators were not necessarily talking to Bigfoot investigators - and the Bigfoot people were not talking to the UFO people. I think UFO researchers felt that they had enough on their hands without the introduction of some other, anomalous, creature. In fact, by merely bringing Bigfoot into the story, the UFO piece of the puzzle most likely dropped in valuation. You just were not believed.

Having worked on this great work with Gordon for two years, and being obviously very close to the manuscript, I can say that the testimony was carefully gathered, and the entire book speaks for the UFO field. UFOs - whatever they are - whoever operates them - are real. And the Bigfoot creature - wherever this fits into the investigation process - and without any bodies to disscect - are also very real.

Both Pennsylvania government and law enforcement during this period were alarmed at the incoming reports - both the high number of reports and exactly what people were reporting. Gordon was visited by high ranking officials at that time who wanted to know what he knew - and the Pennsylvania State Police forwarded UFO and Bigfoot reports to Gordon for his personal investigation.

Some of the most interesting discussions Gordon and I had while preparing this book involved looking back at the many cases and how they fit together. You might have, for example, a family that resides along the side of a hill who reports that at 10 p.m. yesterday, they observed a hovering disc-shaped object over their home. But a second call comes in from a second family, living on the other side of the same hill. The two families do not know each other and they access their homes from different roads. The second family reports that at 10 p.m. yesterday, they looked out their back window and saw three Bigfoot creatures standing on their property.

What then is the connection to a hovering and silent disc and three odd-looking creatures a stone's throw away? Did the craft drop off the creatures? Was the UFO hovering nearby so that they could pick up the creatures when their task was complete? What was their task?

There are few books that allow the reader to come along for the investigation. This book does. Gordon lays it all out - case after case after case after case. If you only purchase one paranormal book this year - this is the book. You can purchase a signed copy of the book diret from the author here.

And just to entice you to buy the book - take a look at this video interview I conducted with one of Gordon's investigators - George Lutz - who was with him during the Uniontown, PA, UFO landing case that involved the Bigfoot creature. This is one of the most outstanding cases logged in during 1973 - and in this video you get to hear the case directly from a man who was there. There are eight parts to the video. Each part is better than the previous. Lutz starts out filling us in on his military background, but this is just filler until you hear the details on his extroidinary case.

Siberia to celebrate Yeti Day November 11

Kemerovo, a Siberian coal mining town with lots of caves, is a yeti hot spot. A hot spot in Siberia may sound like a contradiction, but this place is so hot, they are celebrating the Yeti on Nov 11th for the entire day. When we looked through our history of Kemerovo post, not only were we surprised we had a history of Kemerovo posts, we also found the post to weigh heavy on the paranormal side.

Below is a picture of a the Azass Cave in Mount Shoriya where hairy hominids have been spotted before. An article by RIA Novosti follows.

KEMEROVO (Russia), November 2 (RIA Novosti) -- Russia's Western Siberia will celebrate Yeti Day on November 11, the head of the regional culture and national policy department, Larisa Zauervayn, said on Tuesday.

In February 2009, the Kemerovo regional administration released a report that local hunters had spotted "some hairy humanoid creatures with a height of 1.5-2 meters [5'6"-6'] near the Azass Cave in Mount Shoriya, near Siberia's renowned ski resort, Sheregesh.

The report was illustrated with a photograph from inside the cave showing the footprint of an unidentified creature.

Several advertising and PR experts said that Bigfoot reports were probably teasers for attracting tourists to the region. Three months after the sensational news tourism agencies had introduced excursions to "Yeti's Cave."

"This creature is extraordinary and deserves, in our opinion, its own holiday. On Mount Shoriya Yeti has sparked a total mania," the head of Kuzbass's Tashtagol District, Vladimir Makuta, said.

"Every year Yeti Day celebrations will mark the start of the ski season with thousands of ski lovers from all over Russia gathering on Mount Shoriya," Zauervayn said, adding that Kemerovo Governor Aman Tuleyev is likely to take part in the Yeti-dedicated festivities.

According to the head of the department of anthropology at the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology in Moscow, anthropologists have never seen or studied the body of a Bigfoot or yeti, although there are numerous reports of their sightings throughout the world.

N.C. Man (Mike Greene) Lures Bigfoot with Candy

"This is the most important footage of a Sasquatch since Paterson/Gimlin film taken over 40 years ago,” --Matt Moneymaker, head of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization refering to the thermal Squeaky footage

North Carolina's local Fox 8 has released a video interview of Mike Green. Famous among Bigfooters for his thermal "Squeaky" video, Mike Greene is the retired Chief of a State Fraud Investigations Bureau. He has a Master’s Degree in Psychology, and is a Court Qualified Questioned Documents Expert, and former Investigator for the Public Defender’s Office. His hobby for the last 20 years has been searching for proof of this elusive beast.

ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — A man that once worked as a fraud investigator claims he has captured an image of North American folklore.

Mike Greene, a former chief of fraud investigation in New Jersey, claims he captured video of Bigfoot in the Uwharrie National Forest over a year ago.

"In the middle of the night, I was awakened by what I call, 'Darth Vader' breaths," said Greene. Greene said he was able to capture a thermal image of Sasquatch that night.

"The image is the first comprehensive thermal image of a Sasquatch… even though I admit that it's blurry," said Greene.

In the video, Greene claims you can see a big creature come out of the woods and grab a candy bar that was set up to attract the Sasquatch.

"It can't be anything else, I mean, it literally can't be anything else," said Greene.

Greene said many people have said the image is just a guy in a fat suit or gorilla suit, but he claims the thermal image proves it's something different.

"The heat signature - which is what you're looking at…the heat signature would be completely different. It would be splotchy," said Greene. "You could put a guy in a Bigfoot costume and fool night vision, because that's just like a video camera. But if you put a thermal image on him, that's going to look completely different."

After seeing the video, Greene was convinced he had captured video of the much-discussed creature Bigfoot.

"Yeah, there's no doubt about it," said Greene.

Greene admits that he, and the rest of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, are surprised there has not been better proof after several years of searching and many attempts to get a glimpse of the evasive alleged creature.

"We have, in the organization, maybe 200 game cams out looking for Sasquatches. We haven't got one lousy picture of a Sasquatch, which doesn't make any sense, unless you think that maybe these things are so smart that they either see the game cam," said Greene.

Greene said there is no doubt he caught one of the rare images of the increasingly evasive creature.

"Clear as a bell, absolutely unequivocally, no doubt what it was - to me, anyway," said Greene.

A majority of scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a legitimate animal, in part because some estimate large numbers necessary to maintain a breeding population.

Greene said fossils of a sasquatch-like creature have been unearthed in China. He claims the creature came over the land bridge that used to exist between Asia and Alaska.
