Dolores Barrios: An Alien In Plain Sight?
Seven years after the famous Roswell UFO crash incident, researchers claimed that a group of aliens from Venus arrived on Earth to learn about the knowledge of humans concerning aliens.
The sudden rise in UFO activity reported in post-war United States defies any rational explanation. Following the events of Roswell in 1947, where it was reported that both a UFO and its alien occupants had been recovered by the US government, there was a sudden surge in UFO sightings which would last for decades to come.
These unexplained incidents entered the public consciousness and those who claimed personal experience became celebrities. UFO conventions featuring these people proved to be very profitable, as the general public’s fascination with alien contact grew.
But nobody who attended these conventions really expected to meet an alien there, no matter how much they believed in what they were seeing. However, that might just be what happened at one such convention, at a height of almost 1,800 meters (5,900 feet) on top of Mount Palomar in the United States, in August 1954.
Three of the most prominent “contactees,” George Adamski, Truman Bethurum, and Daniel Fry, promoted this gathering. The event drew over a thousand individuals, including international journalists, FBI agents, UFO witnesses, and many inquisitive onlookers. But it also, maybe, attracted a group of aliens.
Dolores Barrios: An Alien In Plain Sight?
During the convention, attendees spotted an extraordinary presence of a beautiful woman in the company of two men at the end of the first day. Their presence, walking through the crowds, caused a commotion. The three were fair-skinned, and the woman wore her hair in a blond bob, but her eyes were dark and fierce.
The woman was characterized as having unusual physical features, including a projecting bone structure in the middle of her forehead that extended vertically to her nose, and deep black eyes with thick eyelashes.
Adamski has given a talk earlier in the day where he had described aliens from the planet Venus who seek to blend in and walk among us. The appearance of the three strangers matched those of the Venusians, as described by speaker Adamski just hours earlier.
News of the three spread like wildfire through the audience. “Are you Venusians or are you not Venusians?” one of the participants inquired. “No,” the woman said calmly, smiling.
George Adamski’s Presentation
George Adamski claimed to have had multiple experiences with aliens, including aliens with a Caucasian “Nordic” appearance whom he dubbed “Space Brothers”. According to him, he had met these aliens when arrived on Earth aboard a flying saucer, landing in the Colorado desert in November 20, 1952. Befriending Adamski, they allowed him to fly in their plane.
The aliens warned Adamski about humanity’s future on Earth and voiced their fear about nuclear weapons and wars that could endanger human life. Adamski depicted the Venusians’ objectives and morphological structure in the same way as he depicted human beings, with only minor differences.
He stressed that they had a similar appearance to us and may go unnoticed among us. In a painting, he depicted the physical look of Venusians. And then, only a few hours later, it seemed that Adamski had been proven right in the most unexpected and immediate way.
O Cruzeiro, a Brazilian publication, was the most widely circulated magazine in South America at the time. A reporter working for the magazine, Joo Martins, was present at the convention and interviewed the three strangers.
Martins requested permission to photograph them, but they declined. Being referred to as Venusians irritated them. The beautiful woman, according to Martins, resembled the painting Adamski had displayed, and the three declined to explain their presence at the convention.
Martins surprised the beautiful woman the next day by photographing her at the end of the meeting. Then he hurriedly snapped shots of her two pals. The trio, startled by the photos, dashed into nearby woods and some attendees claimed to have seem a UFO depart shortly afterwards, although no photos were taken of this much more conclusive and significant event.
