There are many mysterious places that defy logic and understanding. Places like Stonehenge, the Bermuda Triangle, The Vortex House, Easter Island, the Nazca Lines of Peru, the Devil’s Triangle in Japan, Machu Picchu, Sedona, Arizona and so on. There are an abundance of mysterious places in our world, and the Zone of Silence is one of those places.
Located 400 miles south of El Paso, Texas is a patch of desert land in the Chihuahuas desert in Mexico that is very, very strange. Locals call this mysterious spot “La Zona Del Silencio”, which gave it its name. Why do they call this bare, unforgiving land the Zone of Silence?
The Zone of Silence has a history of “killing” radio and TV signals, and even car engines dying, UFO sightings, dropping pebbles from the sky, and mysterious (alien?) incidents.
This place is a not a household name, like the Bermuda Triangle is, but it is one strange place. The first victim of the Zone of Silence is said to be Francisco Sarabia, who reported that his radio mysteriously stopped working in the 1930′s. What caught the public’s attention surrounding the Zone of Silence was the incident in July 1970 when the base in Green River, Utah fired an American Athena missile, which veered off course, overshot White Sands grounds, and crashed into the Zone of Silence–mysteriously. The Air Force, while collecting the missile wreckage, noticed that radio transmissions would not transmit within the area. This prompted them to take a few truckloads of sand with them for analysis.
Another incident, a few years later, involving an upper stage of one of Saturn boosters of the Apollo project also crashed into the Zone of Silence. This time, the US military was dispatched with a special team to investigate this Zone of Silence.
Since the 1930′s, probably the same time Mr. Sarabia’s radio stopped working, hot pebbles have strangely fell from the sky on a regular basis. This phenomena may have been going on for even longer.
Many people, traveling the area, have reported strange lights, orbs, burning bushes, fireballs, and even UFOs landing. But there are several notable close encounters.
On October 13, 1975, Josefina and Ernesto Diaz drove up to the Zone of Silence in a brand new Ford pickup, looking for fossils and unusual rocks to collect. They soon realized a desert rainstorm was headed their way, so they packed up and left as fast as they could trying not to get caught in a flash flood. But they were caught in the rainstorm and the road turned to swamp and eventually trapped their truck. Their brand new truck sank in the soft sand and rain. They tried in vain to keep their truck from sinking farther into the terrain, when two figures approached them, waving to them out in the downpour. The men were quite tall, with yellow raincoats and caps, and slightly unusual features. They offered their assistance. The men told them to get inside the pickup and they would push them out. Josefina and Ernesto soon realized their pickup was out of the hole and onto solid ground. Ernesto got out to thank the men, but they were gone–no where in sight. No footprints could be found either. How strange. That would give me a chill. Wouldn’t it you?
Another notable incident, occurred in November 1978, when journalist Luis Ramirez Reyes was visiting the Zone of Silence with a team reporting on the strange site. He and his photographer decided to go ahead of the team and drove into the zone. He then noticed three figures walking toward them. Thinking they were locals and they could point him in the right direction, they slowed down to talk to them. But his photographer didn’t see them and passed them by. Later on, as they kept driving on, Luis was shocked and in disbelief that they ran into the three figures again in a different part of the desert!
He met up with his team later on and told them about the incident, and was told the only people out there were members of the biosphere.
The Mexican government has built a research laboratory known as the “biosphere” at the Zone of Silence to study the strange effects of the area. Supposedly they are studying the strange and unusual biological life forms found there, including the prickly purple cactus and mutated turtles and reptiles. There are rumors that this “biosphere” isn’t just studying the life and flora only. The Mexican government keeps a tight watch on the laboratory and all visitors. Hmmm. Sounds like some experiments are going on.
This area is well known to have a high concentration of magnetite, is a hotbed for meteorite activity, and unusual electromagnetic properties. The high levels of iron or some other metal found in meteors, may be the cause of “silencing” all radio, TV, cellphones, satellite, and walk-talkie signals. None of these work in the zone. Only silence. Even a few car engines have been reported to stop working while in the zone. Also considerable levels of Uranium have been found in the mountains surrounding the Zone of Silence.
Where is the largest meteorite ever found on Earth known to have fallen? You guessed it–the Zone of Silence. It happened on February 8, 1969 at 1:05 in the morning. The meteorite was the size of an automobile and reportedly moved at 10 miles per second. Its impact produced a shock wave that was heard for many miles away. The meteor is known as “the Allende Meteorite”.
In the late 1950s, another meteorite crashed which supposedly contained crystalline structures. These crystalline structures far outdated the Solar System, and even was concluded to contain “material as old as the Universe”, by researcher Luis Maeda Villalobos. The age of this meteorite has been estimated at 13 BILLION years old.
There has been other incidents of “visitors” reported for decades. Some “visitors” seem to have Nordic like traits and others are just oddly clad beings being only a few feet in height. Some “visitors” are not the usual elusive ones. One small local ranch was regularly visited by three tall, blonde, long-haired visitors. Two males and one female. They were said to be very polite, dressed well but in a funny way, and spoke flawless Spanish. These visitors always asked for only water. When asked where they were from, they replied “from above”. Spooky!
In 1976, a visitor to the Zone took a photograph of a UFO that had landed on what is known as “Magnetic Hill”. It shows a shiny silver object that resembles a stewing pot. And even supposedly the photographer caught more photos as the UFO rose up and took off. So where are these photographs? Wow, I would be showing these off to everyone I knew, even the papers. Is this just a tall tale or did it really happen? Where’s the proof?
So as anyone can see, the Zone of Silence is definitely a mysterious place, with strange anomalies and weird magnetic properties. Are the visitors aliens? Are they dimensional beings of some kind? Could they just be biosphere workers being mistakenly identified? Another detail to consider is the fact that the Zone of Silence lies just North of the Tropic of Cancer and south of the 30th parallel, putting it in the same company as many other anomalies on the planet, like the Bermuda Triangle.
So is the environment, rich in iron, meteors, uranium, and other metals, causing a vortex or tornado like effect on the electromagnetic waves in the area? And this effect is causing signals of all kinds to be swallowed up? Possibly. Probably. But even if that is the case, is this vortex a magnet to “visitors” from above for some reason?
Could this vortex be a source of power or something for them? Possibly. We may never know. But it is in my opinion that the Zone of Silence has special electromagnetic properties that we don’t yet understand. We know that people that live near or very close to power lines have weird medical problems, so why is it so hard to think that swirling natural electromagnetic waves from the Earth caught in a vortex can cause anomalous animals and vegetation in the same area? It is so possible.
The same can be said of the “visitors” that have been reported. Maybe they are slightly mutated as well from the constant strain of living near a magnetic storm, yet still very human. Apparently the “visitors” need water just like us. And I find it hard to believe that these “visitors” from above can get here in the vast distances of space, can’t find water for themselves. Think about that for awhile.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a 100% believer in the UFO phenomenon. And I can see the reason “visitors” would be attracted to this region of land, but I need more to go on. I just can’t take these stories at face value. Yes, they have many of the strange and similar qualities of other alien encounters, but if you really think about it, you wonder. They need us to give them water?
