When Prophecy Fails in Denmark, 1967

UFO pioneer George Adamski died in the US in 1965, but his teachings lived beyond him and were spread around the world. Two years later, Orthon, the first extraterrestrial he'd befriended, was working with believers in Denmark, sharing technology and preparing for their rescue from the impending atomic war.

Though this be madness, yet there is method in't. 

Most readers know the atomic war was postponed. Orthon's followers were forced to consider another plan building an escape ship using a Free Energy engine.

As with so many of the most interesting UFO cases featured here at The Saucers That Time Forgot, Project Blue Book has no file on this incident.

    1. An open mind can always hear Orthon's message.
      As George Adamski said, “the truth needs neither exposure nor defense. Time itself proves all truth.”

  2. Last I heard Orthon was in Japan. A note from my Nordic files: February 8, 2010: Michel Zirger meets Orthon in Gotanda, Tokyo, Japan. A friend had just been talking about human-like aliens of the blond type and he pops up looking very noticeable as a typical Scandinavian or Nordic person in Japanese surroundings.
