Extraterrestrial Culture Day is Second Tuesday in February
This unorthodox holiday is celebrated every second Tuesday in February and is perfect for paranormal enthusiasts. The day originated in New Mexico to honor all past and present extraterrestrial visitors. While it is an officially observed day in New Mexico, it can be celebrated by anyone. State Representative Dan Foley of Roswell introduced the bill and had it passed to become an official holiday. Extraterrestrial sightings have helped create worldwide recognition for Rosewell. The first sighting was in 1947 when a local farmer found debris in his sheep pasture. The sheriff came to investigate and then called the Roswell Army Air Force Base and they came and removed the debris. The next day the local paper ran a story about the found flyer saucer. The Roswell Army Air Force denied the statement but the story ran wild and Rosewell became famous for alien sightings.
Famous Extraterrestrials to Celebrate
In honor of this day here are five extraterrestrials to celebrate
A character in the book Stranger at the Pentagon, Valiant Thor arrived from Venus to advise President Eisenhower on global issues and how to solve them. He warned against war and that if the world continued to be in war it would cause economic imbalance. He stayed on Earth until March 16, 1960 and then returned to Venus.
Tall White ET’s
Charles Hall has written about this race of extraterrestrials. These extraterrestrials are very human like in appearance. They have Nordic-like features. They are tall with blonde hair and blue eyes. They are supposedly from Ancient Earth but present themselves as past extraterrestrials. They used to live on the surface of the earth but moved underground after a natural disaster. In the 1960’s they lived near an Air Force base and often went to Las Vegas disguised as humans.
These extraterrestrials are from Mars. They live underground similarly to the Tall White ET’s. Ernest Norman is the only human to have received communication from them. He believed their insights were worth sharing with the world. In 1954 he created the Unarian Educational Foundation to share their insights with the rest of the world.
Riley Martin made this species of extraterrestrials famous when he wrote a book claiming that they visited. They are a peaceful species that live on Saturn. They are 3 to 4 feet tall and look the the typical extraterrestrial pictured in cartoons and other drawings. These extraterrestrials communicate through telepathy. These extraterrestrials have been around since biblical times. They watch the human race and very rarely interfere. Technology they have created is very advanced compared to ours and allows them to travel 100 times the speed of light.
While this group of deities does not fit into the traditional sense of extraterrestrials there are theories that they were in fact extraterrestrials. In a series of books Erich con Däniken claimed that these Sumarian deities were actually ancient astronauts that visited earth during this time. Other authors such as Zecharia Sitchin and Ronald H. Frieze support these claims.
