This article will be covering the controversial George Adamski UFO photos from the 1950’s. Was this Polish born American really in touch with aliens or was he nothing more than a clever fraud?
Let’s take a closer look…
George Adamski and the Venusians
Adamski’s most famous contact with a Venusian (alien race from Venus) was in December 1952, when he managed to capture a photograph of one of their scout ships.
George Adamski had already gone public with a handful of previous alien encounters but this one seemed to gain him notoriety and unwanted criticism.
The First Contact
Adamski claimed that his first ‘alien encounter’ took place some time in 1946, when he saw a cigar shaped ‘mothercraft’ pass in front of the moon during a meteor shower.
Then, in 1950, Adamski managed to capture a photograph of six UFO’s flying in formation.
It was in 1952 that Adamski had his closest encounter, when a Venusian scout ship landed near him and a being named Orthon stepped out.
Orthon and Adamski had a telepathic conversation in which the Venusian warned about the dangers of the nuclear age and doomsday predictions.
When the conversation was over, Adamski asked the Venusian if he could take a picture of him, but Orthon would not agree to this.
However, Adamski was able to take the famous ‘Scout Ship’ photo when Orthon returned several weeks later.
An Important Man
George Adamski became a very famous man, and published several books on his encounters with the Venusian race.
The Queen Julianna of the Netherlands took great interest in his work and even presented him with a Golden Medal of Honor for his services in acting as a medium between humanity and the extraterrestrial.
His writings explain that he went on several journeys through the solar system with the Venusians – meeting numerous new alien races along the way. He called these groups of alien species ‘Space Brothers’.
The Adamski Empire Starts to Crumble
Even before the release of the 1952 scout ship, Adamski had his critics who claimed he was nothing more than a crazy fraud.
Adamski had claimed to have used a Kodak Brownie box camera and a six inch telescope to snap the scout ship in motion…but photographic experts started pulling holes in his story.
They claimed that the precise, separate manipulations of the camera/telescope setup would have caused the photographic image to be extremely blurred…but it was extremely sharp!
Other critics claim that the ship itself is made up of easily recognizable household items – one of Adamski’s colleagues even stated that he had come across the UFO model, when it was being constructed.
BUT…it’s also worth noting that many experts in the field of photography at the time agreed with what Adamski was saying – they believe that the scout ship image was definitely NOT a fake.
So now it’s over to you – friend of the ‘star men’ from Venus or clever fraud?
