Alejandro Rojas with UFO Updates, guest Ray Stanford studied UFOs for decades, including scientifically with cameras and instruments. However, he will NOT focus on what his instruments have revealed in looking up, but, instead, upon what he has learned by looking down at the earth in two periods: (1) ~ 110 million years ago, and (2) beginning ~ 2,000 years ago, at contents of Hopewell, Fort Ancient, and Mississippian Indian mounts. Some intriguing hematite (Fe2O3) domed discs made by ancient native Americans suggest that they might have had close-range observations of domed, disc-shaped sky objects that deeply impressed them. Ray will show us some of those intriguing (and even somewhat magnetic) hematite objects.
Bio: Ray Stanford is best-known in the media for his unprecedented dinosaur-age discoveries. A few of them: (1),A new species of dinosaur, Propanoplosaurus marylandicus, displayed in Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History; (2) the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s ~ 2m2 ironstone slab with about 90 footprints of diverse mammals, dinosaurs, and pterosaurs (‘pterodactyls’) interacting; (3) the largest and most detailed mammal footprints ever found in the Mesozoic; (4) the largest pterosaur footprint ever found, & size-comparable pterosaur feeding traces; (5) the most skin-detailed sauropod footprint (Maryland) and smallest sauropod trackway (Texas); (6) Maryland’s largest (at 5”) theropod claw bone yet found; (7) an unprecedented dinosaur ichnospecies (footprint type), i.e., Hypsiloichnus marylandicus; and other paleontological world-firsts.
Ray’s NASA Goddard Space Flight Center discovery was published in Nature’s Scientific Reports (January 31, 2018). His new dinosaur species is described in the Journal of Paleontology (September, 2011). His new dinosaur footprint species description is in Ichnos (Volume 11, 2004). An overview of his many Maryland Early Cretaceous footprint discoveries is in Ichnos (Volume 14, 2007).
University Art Museum, U.T., Austin, published Ray’s paper on Mayan titles and themes in the art of Carlos Merida, in its retrospective catalog of Merida’s work, 1976.
From 1959 to present, Ray pioneered in successful use of cameras, magnetometer, gravimeter, spectrographic camera, audio recorder, etc. in recording well documented daylight optical images and electronic hard data of anomalous aerial objects (AAOs). It will be published appropriately.
