Return to Socorro

The UFO landing at Socorro has been wrapped in controversy almost from the moment that police officer Lonnie Zamora watched a craft descend and land. Zamora saw alien beings near the craft and a symbol on its side but was told that he shouldn't mention either. Encounter in the Desert reveals--for the first time--exactly what he saw in that arroyo in 1964 and what an examination of the landing revealed to investigators. Socorro wasn't a stand-alone case. Other sightings, some of them nearly as spectacular as Zamora's, were reported at the time. A study of the Air Force investigation of this case reveals an effort, at first, to learn the truth that mutated into a clever attempt to hide the information from the public.

Encounter in the Desert reveals all this and much more, including:
  • The first new, in-depth look at the Zamora UFO landing in more than three decades.
  • Other reports of alien creatures sighted around the country at the same time.
  • An examination of the physical evidence found on the landing site.
  • The revelation that there were other witnesses to the craft and the landing.
