Ray Stanford


Ray Stanford, Age 37 (from an article in UFO Report by Franco Cernero, June 1976, Page 46 ff.)

Mr. Stanford is noted for his misfortunately named book about the 1964 Lonnie Zamora UFO sighting in Socorro, New Mexico: Socorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry

Despite the fact that Mr. Stanford was complicit in the Air Force's inept attempt to beloud the Socorro incident by re-imaging the insignia that Office Zamora saw on the craft he is famously aligned with, we like that Mr. Stanford has always, it seems, attempted to attack the UFO mystery in obtuse and imaginative, unique ways.

The article referenced above was about Ray Stanford's "Project Starlight" -- a project geared to accessing UFOs in ways that might generate some clues or an explanation of the UFO enigma.

Writer Cernero concentrated on Mr. Stanford's Project Starlight International's laser signaling attempt to zero in on UFOs cluttering the skies of Texas in 1973.

If other "ufologists" were as creative as Ray Stanford, we might not be musing over, still, what UFOs are or were...
