I had no idea that Lord Desmond Leslie, who spent a a lot of time analysing Adamski's testimony, was a Spitfire pilot and cousin of Sir Winston Churchill. Royalty and the higher echelons of power take the off-world presence very seriously, meanwhile it is largely ridiculed by the man on the street.

I've come to the conclusion that the "discredited", "debunked" space brother contactees of the 1950's may have been a lot more credible than we have been led to believe. I'm still hanging around in Exopolitics Hong Kong, and there's plenty more to post. Here's an essay by Neil Gould of Exo-HK on Adamski.


This paper begins with an overview of Lord Desmond Leslie, the charismatic peer who co authored the book “Flying Saucers have Landed”, with contactee George Adamski.

The contact experiences of Adamski in the Californian desert are discussed, witness testimony analyzed followed by an examination of the empirical evidence, which are always accompanied by attacks from the skeptics, who are always there to debunk out of this world contacts.

Adamski embarks on worldwide travel lecturing to proponents of ETs including Royalty.

What was so special about this man? Was he physically different, perhaps a hybrid? Why was he buried in the Arlington Cemetery? The paper takes a view on these controversial points before presenting evidence of similar contact experiences by others.

Adamski was not the only human undergoing an uplifting of conscious by extra terrestrials; it is an ongoing phenomena designed to ensure mankind brings his technology and spirituality in line with the harmonics of the universe.

Overview of Dennis Leslie

Lord Desmond Leslie was a cousin of Sir Winston Churchill, a Spitfire pilot, proponent of extraterrestrial life, composer of revue lyrics and a collector of electronic noise.

One November night in 1934 after "lights out", he claimed his dormitory was ""suddenly lit by a brilliant green glare which had his fellow schoolboys rushing to the window to see an immense green fireball move slowly across the sky and disappear behind the Sussex Downs”.

Leslie mused: “Why should they risk a public landing?" Their ship would be impounded for evasion of custom duties. Their clothes would be torn off and sold as souvenirs. They would be denounced as saboteurs, anti-Christ’s, and disturbers of the peace, emissaries of Satan, and the rest.”

Leslie created television history when, during the live filming of That Was The Week That Was with Bernard Levin, who had given his wife’s Cabaret show, Savagery and Delight a bad review, Leslie emerged out of the audience and took a swing at him. (See the film here)

In his book, “Flying saucers have landed” co authored with contactee George Adamski, Leslie spent time explaining what saucers were not! Logging as many sightings as he could muster Leslie ridicules the explanations of these sighting given by the establishment.

Whilst researching the Vedas (ancient texts) including around 50 episodes of the Mahabharata, Leslie concluded that the ancient chariots or flying machines called Vimanas were actually anti gravitic vehicles and some of the weapons (Brahma weapon) could well have been nuclear bombs or death rays. Descriptions in the Vedas of the resulting carnage were reminiscent of Hiroshima. Those episodes written in the Dheiva were of course fairy tales but those of the Menusa were considered fact.

Leslie had received some of Adamski’s pictures of the Venusian craft and in order to not spoil Adamski’s efforts in publishing a book, Leslie arranged to Co-author a book with Adamski called; “Flying Saucers have Landed”. An aristocratic background carries credibility and it could well be that Leslie was chosen or influenced by higher forces in “getting Adamski’s word out”.

Desmond Leslie refers to the work of a `Dr' Meade Layne of California who was experimenting in `very advanced and mysterious fields of physics' and who believed that `life on Venus takes place at a higher octave of matter than on Earth. Dr Layne gives details of Venusian ships, which fit in with many observation reports.

Encounter in the desert

On 20th November 1952 at 12.30pm when George Adamski met an ET called Orthon, a long haired youthful man from Venus in front of 6 witnesses in the Californian desert near Mount Palomar; the cat was out the bag, the space people were amongst us and nothing has ever been the same.

Adamski‘s life was dedicated to metaphysics, psychicsm and religion and was certainly the prototype for many hippie like teachers to come after him in the 1960’s (“Looking for Orthon” page 20). The natural laws that he formulated were rather like our own “New Age” concepts.

Adamski’s description of Orthon resembles many other such encounters, with the High forehead and cheekbones, grey green eyes, hairless skin and long thin fingers and white teeth. He said of Orthon that if he had dressed in woman’s clothing he could have passed for a female.

One occasion during an encounter Adamski did not take heed of a warning and got to close to the craft. His arm painfully jerked upwards as though by an electric shock.

Orthon wanted humankind to know of their existence, aware that man was on the brink of going into space. Adamski was taken on trips to space and to the hidden side of the moon where he reported seeing water and vegetation.

Teachings were about self-responsibility and universal law; a kind of cosmic moral paradigm that binds together the entire animal, mineral and vegetable universe.

Witness testimony

Some 50 years later, arguments surrounding the validity of Adamski’s story still rage on.

Alan C Tolman (Aerospace Engineer who appeared in Fastwalkers) described during an interview at the preview of FASTWALKERS, the structure and sensing devices on a picture of an extremely clear shot of a Venusian cigar shaped craft taken by Adamski. (see the film here).

Tolman displays blown up posters of the very same Scout crafts cited by Adamski, that had appeared and landed in the UK. Tolman who met Adamski and witnessed the craft through Adamski’s 15” telescope was so inspired; that he set up his own telescope connected to a TV monitor and took images of the moon with extreme clarity.

He confirmed how people from all walks of life met with Adamski including people from the military, to listen to him talk about the Space people and their craft.

Tolman mentioned his own encounter with a craft; how it increased its frequency and went brighter and brighter then took off till it looked like one of the stars. Perhaps this was a clue to the notion that the Space People were less dense being of a higher vibration or frequency.

Retired Major Hans C Peterson of the Danish NATO exchange office, washing ton D.C. 1995 asserted that governments and science were simply not telling the truth. Having received pictures from NATO showing smoke rising from the crater, he concluded was that the moon had its own atmosphere. Other pictures showed a camouflaged water reservoir, two square tunnel entrances to a mountain and tracks from objects that have moved up hill.

Major Peterson had his own sightings; on one occasion he was given information by a Swedish contactee who confirmed that there were fifteen human looking extraterrestrials living and working in Sweden. Whilst waiting at the airport for Adamski to land, he saw a saucer following his inbound plane.

Evidence and Analysis

Madeleine Rodeffer, a government employee and colleague of Adamski, witness and filmed a Venusian craft over her house. She used an 8mm Bellingham movie camera and allowed Adamski to continue the filming. Subsequently she met some of the ET’s who arrived in a car to speak with adamski. She claims that they look like ordinary Americans; some with dark hair and some with light hair.

William Sherwood, Optical Physicist Eastman Kodak analyzed Rodiffer’s film. Sherwood went to the exact location, calculated the distance as 90 foot, triangulated the image size and concluded the disk to be 27ft. diameter. The conclusion was that Rodeffer’s film was true.

This view was shared by Bob Oechler; Mission Specialist of NASA Spacecraft Center, who noticed that there was this haze around the craft and portions of the craft seem to change shape due to the effects of some kind of radiation or energy field. Oechler stated that this alone surpassed any testimony from Adamski or Rodiffer.

In 1954, Desmond Leslie is said to have witnessed several UFOs with Adamski while visiting him in California. He described one of them in a letter he sent to his wife while he was in San Diego

“a beautiful golden ship in the sunset, but brighter than the sunset . . . It slowly faded out, the way they do.


The arrival of the Space Brothers became a threat to the military. Majestic twelve, a secret control group, also known as the shadow government, ordered the Psychological Strategy Board to debunk UFO sightings and cases involving ET contacts with humans. According to Leslie they feared these contacts could lead to the public knowledge and access of free energy, resulting in the loss of power and control over the oil industry.

The governments had been made aware that the extraterrestrials were vehemently against nuclear technology; used for making weapons. Adamski had spoken of free energy, which radiates around the planets.

The government propaganda machine sprung into operation and a 2-tier relationship with Adamski had begun. On the one hand there was a program of covert debunking, whilst on the other hand Adamski was courted by the government and given an Ordinance Pass to visit any government department in Washington. This was confirmed by William Sherwood of Eastman Kodak who himself had such a pass.

It is always possible that some of Adamski’s stories were a little over the top, perhaps embellished somewhat; the result of continuously being challenged for evidence; totally understandable, however what does one say to a man that reported the “Firefly” phenomenon in space long before astronaut John Glen reported such years later?

The debunking continued with stories and accusations that the pictures of Scout ships were taken using wooden models. This was despite the fact that the exact same craft were seen in many other countries including a landing in the lake district of England.

After a blonde beautiful looking man had left Adamski’s Hotel room, he was accused of being a homosexual. Other critics pointed out that his book “Inside the Spaceships” 1955 was copied verbatim from one of his earlier novels.

Finally in 1965 when adamski had passed away rumors were spread that he died a wealthy man mainly from fees gained as a result of his lecture tours.

World Lecture Tours

Adamski founded the "Royal Order of Tibet," which held its meetings in the "Temple of Scientific Philosophy.” He gave lectures which were well attended by people across the social spectrum which included military personal.

Adamski toured several countries lecturing on the spiritual lessons derived from his contacts. After a meeting with the Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, Dutch Aeronautical Association president Cornelis Kolff said, "The Queen showed an extraordinary interest in the whole subject”. On a visit to U-Thant, General Secretary of the UN he was invited for a full day and met with several influential people.

Adamski reported to Leslie that he was sent to visit the Pope and deliver a sealed package from the ETs. Verification of his visit to Pope John 23rd was his possession a gold medallion with the Popes head embossed on one side. Leslie tells of how his close friend Cardinal Basel Hume explained that such a medal could not be bought and that Adamski must have done something quite important to have received such a gift.

Adamski’s influence had spread across the globe. The right hand side of the August 1978 Grenada commemorative stamp depicts George Adamski's UFO sighting on May 29, 1950.

Sir Eric Matthew Gairy served as Premier of Granada from 1967 till 1974. He was considered a dictator by most and mentally unstable due to his belief in UFOs and his speeches on UFOs at the United Nations (Allegedly a dead ET was found on Granada). Gairy began lobbying the UN in 1977 to create an agency or department to start research on UFO and extraterrestrial life. The result of this was the UN's seminal resolution (33/426) on extraterrestrial life in 1978.

Was this purely coincidental or was Adamski in some way a catalyst to these events?

Adamski as a Hybrid

Leslie cites an occasion when Adamski was at his residence; he lifted his shirt to reveal a tummy without a naval. Instead he had slits radiating outwards from where the naval should be. Astounded, Leslie remarked “George, just who are you?” to which Adamski recalled that when he was 4 years of age he was briefly taken away and brought back unharmed by a complete stranger. Adamski had no memory of exactly what had happened during that time.

The question remains; was Adamski a hybrid or was this part of the story pure fantasy by Leslie ahead of the launch of a few books? My opinion is that it was in all probabilities quite true. The charismatic Leslie was part of a dissemination program by the ETs and the uttering of such a strange description truly resonates and amplifies the story of George Adamski, throughout the generations, even after the living bridges to this era have passed on.

Final resting place

Alice Wells (illustrator) [Flying Saucers - 50 Years Later by C. A. Honey] petitioned the appropriate agencies for interment at Arlington due to Adamski’s services in the American Mexican war. Of course nothing could be further from the truth for only service personal and service diplomats are considered for interment at Arlington.

After all it is said that Adamski briefed Kennedy during the Cuban Missile crises. It was resolved was it not? Adamski once confided in Leslie: “My heart is a graveyard of secrets”.

Similar Cases in Common.

The cases involving Adamski, Truman Bethurum, Orfeo Angelucci and Maurice Cavallo all have one thing in common; the uplifting of the human race and the survival of the planet. Extra terrestrials do walk and live amongst us. Whether it is the Clarion Suel in Italy, Nordics in Sweden or the Clarion, Aura Rhanes in America, human looking ETs are here and always have been. In the past they were described as angels. As our technology and conciousness advances, so we begin to see these spiritual entities as higher dimensionality beings that have come to a hostile planet Earth to assist us in balancing our technology with the harmonics of the universe.

“Humans are not that familiar with those vibrations only of earth’s tangabilities.”

Leslie realized that these and many sightings took place near nuclear installations.

What is the ultimate purpose of life and contact? The soul is the essence of a being that is in a state of ignorance, being in a material body. The earth is a school to elevate conciousness.

Adamski and the other contactees had met the teachers.
