Close Encounters

Former UFO Investigator Captivates Listeners With
Extraterrestrial Tales

DANVILLE =96 Those who have ever seen a strange object hovering in
the late-night sky might have felt right at home at Dowser's
Hall Saturday morning.

Better still if they had an invisible, hairless alien came to
stay as a houseguest to channel information from other galaxies.

Such were the tales told by John M. Meloney of Claremont, N.H.,
a journalist-turned-UFO investigator, to a rapt audience of
about 50 people filling the small lecture hall at the American
Society of Dowsers' Danville headquarters.

A well-educated, World War II veteran with years of journalism
experience, Meloney spoke with great sincerity of several outer-
worldly encounters =96 including some that happened here in

His motives for telling the stories seem to be to inform the

"If something is going through the atmosphere of this planet,
the people on the planet have a right to know what it is,"
Meloney said of his life's work that began when he started
working for the National Investigative Committee on Aerial
Phenomenon in 1966.

His first brush with the topic started when he was a sports
editor for the St. Petersburg Independent in Florida and a man
came in, excited to report he had seen a flying saucer over the
Gulf of Mexico. As a newspaperman, skepticism kicked in and the
man was ignored. Today, Meloney said he wishes he had asked the
man probing questions about the sighting.

A few months later, Meloney moved to New Hampshire when a
fateful newspaper article changed the course of his life.

The article recounted an incident reported by a man traveling
from White River Junction to Concord, N.H., on Route 4 before
Interstate 89 was built. As the man approached Enfield, N.H.,
his car engine suddenly =96 and inexplicably =96 died. As the man
opened the hood to look for loose wires, he heard an all-
pervasive humming sound. He looked up and saw an object moving
away from him. As the object disappeared, the humming sound
decreased, then suddenly, the car engine spontaneously turned
on. He reported the incident to the local newspaper, where
Meloney read about it.

Hostile letters to the editor followed, accusing the paper of
sensationalism to sell newspapers. But one letter from an
engineer in Detroit said the car's behavior was typical of a car
involved in a flying saucer incident, and referred readers to
Meloney's future employer: the National Investigative Committee
on Aerial Phenomenon.

Meloney fielded hundreds of sightings in Vermont and New
Hampshire until the organization went defunct in 1968. The
public stopped reporting sightings because people did not want
to be considered kooks, Melony said, but he continued to study
UFOs independently, keeping his own files, which he kept hiddden
in Vermont.

Soon after the UFO research project folded, Meloney says he
began working directly for the aliens. His second wife, he said,
could channel information from extraterrestrials.

It started one night when she was talking in her sleep and he
began conversing with her.

"I realized I was talking to someone else who was using her
body," he said. "She was very psychic. =85 the people who were
using her to talk to me were in fact, extraterrestrials. They
said we would make an excellent team to teach new arrivals on
this planet."

Soon, Meloney said, a series of aliens arrived at their home
from distant galaxies to study the ways of earthlings. The
first, he said, was a 2,000-year-old, 3-foot-tall, hairless
female named Dolia, who considered herself very beautiful with
webbed hands and feet of three digits each.

The couple went on to contact 46 alien beings from several
different planets, he said. Meloney said they were invisible to
him because their vibrations were too high, but his wife could
see them.

Meloney recounted being questioned by FBI agents, brushes with
political issues and joining the American Society of Dowsers in

Meloney ended his lecture saying most aliens are friendly and
people should not fear them.

Many audience members shared alien stories of their own after
the lecture. One woman, however, was not completely sold on the

Mickey Smith, a retired banker from Lyndonville, said she
enjoyed the lecture because it was very entertaining, but said
she the part about the alien visitation was hard to swallow.

"I was a little bit pessimistic to be totally honest," she said.
"Personally, I didn't know what to believe."
