The Salamanca Humanoids | U.S. Intelligence Tracks Close Encounter of the Third Kind in 1974
Oct 24, 2020
Five years after the closing of Project Blue Book, U.S. intelligence was still paying attention to UFOs. Declassified files from 1974 show something even stranger — monitoring of a Close Encounter of the Third Kind, a case involving 6 1/2 foot tall humanoid occupants of disc-shaped craft.
The case occurred in Western Spain, in the province of Salamanca. A Defense Intelligence Agency analyst compiled an account of this and other strange sightings from that year, and sent them to European Command and other “parties interested.”
The witness, Maxi Iglesias, claims U.S. officials visited the site to analyze trace evidence left behind, telling him they were from “NASA.” For years, this was laughed off, but we now know officials really were monitoring the case.

Great stuff. I am not remembering this case. Or, indeed any of the others mentioned.
