Just to be clear, the hoax theory put forth by Braglia doesn't attempt to discredit Zamora in any way. He in no way suggests that Zamora was anything but a victim of the speculated hoax and even though that hoax is unproven now, if it ever were to be proven, I would still consider Zamora to be an honest guy who reported exactly what he saw to the best of his ability.

That is all well and good. What I was hoping to illicit from ATS members was what they think he actually experienced. I really can't even imagine what happened that day myself. I do however, believe that something happened.

First, let me say that i always appreciate your posts, especially whenever you disagree with me: i do appreciate people using their brain and posing to themseleves and to me legitimate questions, regardless they agree or disagree with me. THIS is what a forum is supposedly made for, and the only way to grow, all together: the alternative is to get LOST.

If Colgate was so certain of a student-perpetrated hoax, why on earth did he not convey this information to Dr. Hynek?? Compounding his remiss, Colgate then maintained an extraordinary silence on the subject for over 40 years.
I personally think Zamora was legit.
Again thanks. Yay a new case for me! 😁

Hey Vance for what it's worth here's Ray Stanford's take on the incident where he also discusses separately located witnesses and other aspects like ground trace evidence.
Apparently Officer Zamora did recommend (and give a copy of) Stanford's book to his own daughter.
You ever looked into the Valensole case from one year later - some pretty interesting similarities.

As far as the Zamora incident goes I for one believe him and don't buy the prank theory, there is just way too many variables and unlikely scenarios for the college prank to have occurred in my opinion. The Socorro incident still remains one of the top cases IMHO.

While intriguing, I dont really see it as a UFO case, the whole story is just too low tech. Especially in regards to propulsion.
”No doubt was left in my mind but that NICAP and APRO, and possibly others, would consider this the best authenticated landing sighting on record. […]
They will probably say that the burns are ‘plasma burns’ which can scorch locally, I understand.”
