Alien Disclosure From An Astronaut

Former NASA engineer, Clark McClelland, revealed a conversation he had with the late Lt Col Ellison Onizuka, in an article he penned called Alien Disclosure From An Astronaut. According to McClelland, Onizuka said that he managed to see secret film footage that depicted the bodies of what appeared to be dead aliens, like those often associated with Roswell.[1]

McClelland recounts Onizuka’s supposed description of what was viewed on the film: “a view of a facility similar to a medical examination room appeared on the screen and small bodies were observed lying on slabs... The small, strange looking creatures were humanoid in shape, and appeared similar to those described by alleged witnesses at the well-known Roswell site in the Southwest USA in 1947. They all had large heads, large eyes, slight torsos, arms, and legs. They did not appear to be of earthly origin.”

The author of the article noted Onizuki’s ‘disclaimer’ that “perhaps it was a test of our psyche to determine our overall reaction”, like that of a psychological evaluation.
