Beginning in June 2010, I started to notice an odd light at 9:46 in the evening and it appeared to be descending onto what is known locally as Satan’s Butte. The local Navajo have tales about a large snake that lived on top of the butte and ancient rituals were performed around a huge fire – the snake would emerge from a hole and “wishes” were granted to the supplicants. If cows or sheep wandered into the vicinity – they were just left to the butte. Knowing this and having heard stories from local Navajo Ranchers about a craft that was seen to enter the crater formed inside Satan’s Butte, I was curious but dismissed the stories as local folklore to entertain the white rancher!
On June 2nd I rushed into the house and told my wife that I had seen something descending into Satan’s Butte. She rolled her eyes and asked when she should call the men in white jackets. I swore I saw something that appeared to be cylindrical and had flashing red lights in the middle. Two night later, I rushed into the house and told her to look out because it was descending again. She was not quick enough and missed the craft. By this time, the wife really thought I had flipped out or was drinking! I then told her that I was going to Flagstaff to Best Buy and buy a good camera so I could photograph it next time it landed. I bought a good digital Nikon! Having bought the Nikon, I waited and waited…
