There are some people that believe and some that don't. But for the panel of local speakers at the Aztec UFO 2009 Symposium Saturday, the encounters were real. The speakers were the capstone of the annual two-day event, which in its 12th year, attracted more than 300 people from as far away as Hawaii and Alabama. "A fear factor would keep a lot of people away," event planner Katee McClure said.There's still a large stigma attached to anyone who speaks of encounters, she said. Aztec resident Shirley McNall talked of abductions she has experienced while her husband was asleep. "Hedoesn't wake up," she said.
"It doesn't phase him."Her family has experienced encounters with UFOs and aliens for three generations, McNall said. One incident stood out for McNall. In 1988, McNall woke up to a short creature with large brown eyes above her in bed, she said at the symposium Saturday.
"He stood and stared at me," McNall said. "He was probably 3 feet tall at the most."
The creatures' eyes looked
sad, she said. And after a few moments, she said the creature walked
through a shut door and vanished.
"I wasn't afraid," McNall said. "It was almost like I was drugged."
McNall said she has woken
up with bruises on her arms and scratch marks from other abductionsand
encounters that she says typically occur in the middle of the night.
"I don't know who it is that comes and sees me in the middle of the night," she said.
The other two speakers talked of bright lights and large flying objects.
"I'm telling you there's
some unusual things going on in the skies over Pagosa Springs," said
Oscar Dominguez, a Pagosa Springs, Colo., resident, and speaker at the
event. "I don't know what's going on, but I think something is."
Dominguez has seen UFOs in
Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California. He also has spotted large
objects that seemed to float in the sky near his home.
"I would sense things before I would see things," he said.
While Dominguez and McNall
spoke of multiple encounters andsight......
