Paul Villa’s interactions with otherworldly entities allegedly began in 1953 in Long Beach, California, when he encountered a seven-foot-tall spaceman moseying along the beach.
Villa’s next run-in with the space brothers allegedly occurred on June 16th, 1963, when he was telepathically instructed to drive his pick-up truck to the location of a landed saucer. The saucer, in this instance, was a mothership from the Coma Berenices galaxy carrying nine humanoids—a mix of men and women—ranging from seven to nine feet tall. Included in their arsenal were nine remotely-controlled disk shaped drones (14 inches in diameter) that were used for Earth recon missions, controlled from instrument panels inside the mothership. During this meeting, the UFO occupants “permitted Villa to take photos of their ship which posed and hovered close to the surface.”
On April 18th, 1965, Villa was telepathically instructed to travel to Bernalillo, New Mexico, and it was there he photographed a spaceship that projected a laser beam, igniting a small vegetation fire. (At least that was the claim Villa made; that the craft had started a fire, although what the black mark looks like is a shadow cast by the alien craft, or whatever it actually was.)
A photo of this arsonist spaceship was among several other Villa saucer photos published in Gabe Green’s UFO International. Project Blue Book investigators later determined that Villa fabricated these photos using a miniature model of a flying saucer.
