The similarities of John’s encounters to The Keys Of Enoch and the movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

M y UFO encounters are similar in many ways to some of the details related in the book, The Keys Of Enoch…and as you will see, the movie Close Encounters Of  The Third KindJohn Foster   11-19-15

Today I believe it is important to relate to you that when I first recalled, in 1986/1987, my enormous number of UFO encounters that had occurred since my very early childhood (about 1939 or 1940), I discovered that I had time traveled, most often, with the same individual humans during some of my 1940s and 1950s encounters. (This might have begun as early as 1939.) Even though I met them under other kinds of mysterious circumstance, we most often time traveled in what I call “the elongated windowed saucer.”

In the Spring of 1987, after my flood of recollections, I was astonished when I first met them under more normal circumstances. To say the least, they seemed extremely familiar. In my writings and during my talks since that time, I have called them “the familiar strangers.”      (This was actually a term or “handle” given to me by Bod Teets, who was sent out to the Laramie, Wyoming Rocky Mountain UFO Conference On UFO Investigation and later to our home in Nebraska for a few weeks for interviews, to investigate the possibility of a book to be written by Bob and published by The Human Potential Foundation…an organization set up to keep President Clinton informed of new science and UFO developments across the USA during that era. My relationship with Bob since that time has been astonishing and I will write more about it in blogs to come. See Bob’s website at  )   

Well, lately I began trying to recall the name of “the brotherhood” that was given to my friend and me during the June, 1957 Sheridan Creek Fireguard Cabin UFO Encounter (Chapter Nine of the book Eminent Discovery) — when the old bearded man told us that the historical inventors, who were standing in a line before us with their inventions, were members of that brotherhood. He actually spelled the name of the brotherhood and eventually the letters of the name mysteriously appeared above the inventors. (As an aside, he sternly warned us that we had better remember the name and learn how to spell it. It was an odd name and we couldn’t spell it after the letters of the name disappeared.) When writing my first book, Eminent Discovery, I still couldn’t recall the name, but thought that Rosicrucians might be the best fit. However, I am now sure that was not the name.

So, I have recently asked Brad and Sherry Steiger if they might have an idea what the name of the inventors’ brotherhood might have been. I told them that the familiar strangers were studying The Keys Of Enoch when I first met them. Well, they then told me that if that was true, the brotherhood most likely was of the Order of Melchizedek. (See The Keys Of Enoch at: . )

I had studied The Keys Of Enoch with the familiar strangers for a time when I first met them under normal circumstances, but I thought the book was way “too far out” for me and didn’t continue my interest in reading it. Yet, after the suggestion from Brad and Sherry Steiger, I decided to read the entire book…and I have just finished it. To my surprise several details in the book fit my encounters to a “T.” I will elaborate as I have time in some of the following blogs/articles. One of the most startling details, however, is the description of the future Return of Christ toward the back of the book. It describes His return “from revolving light clouds“….very similar to some of the craft I and others saw arriving from and leaving into churning, twisting, boiling clouds during several of my encounters.

You can find descriptions of the churning clouds I and others saw and experienced in Section One of the book Eminent Discovery and in the book To Earth From Heaven.    I will elaborate on the churning cloud phenomenon later in additional blogs. I also hope to include comments concerning the similarity of the churning clouds we saw to those seen in the movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind.

All the best…John

About jafos

I am a 75 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields...home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, author. Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood...but I really couldn't understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me and them I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 30 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I now can offer you three books and a website ( to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs.
