UFO sightings at Stonefield Beach reveal strange boxes up and down coast

STONEFIELD BEACH, Ore. – A dog fixed this strange metal box in a blue-eyed vise here at Stonefield Beach Feb. 6 after a weekend filled with what locals call intense UFO sightings.

A dog’s eyes leaving his face for the flutter of a moment made locals here at Stonefield Beach feel even more at ease late Feb. 6 after dog after dog barked and growled at a strange metal box that locals say “suddenly appeared at dawn Monday” after a weekend filled with what locals call intense UFO sightings. “These metal looking boxes, that are about 20 inches in height and are a complete square of five foot by five foot are sunk deep in the surf” both here at Stonefield Beach – a popular Oregon coastal beach lookout for UFOs – and down the coast as far as we know “with yet more of these square metal containers that have no opening and are sealed all around,” explains Oregon UFO “watcher” Errol who lives nearby at Bray’s Point. In turn, these boxes are “not moveable,” and they are solid and metallic and seem to have this keening wail coming from both the boxes and the atmosphere around them,” adds Errol who’s been called in to “see what’s up” by locals thinking it “has something to do with UFOs” quipped a local senior named Doris who said she also heard “a miaowing wail come from the boxes Sunday evening.”

Strange beach boxes cause a stir

It’s as if an alarm went off, when a “high, shrill, piercing, frightening ring caught our attention Sunday evening,” explained Doris, a local senior whose retired and lives nearby Stonefield Beach. “I know crazy things happen over at Stonefield, but when you walk down and see that metal box sort of glowing in the surf it gets your attention real quick.”

In turn, local Oregon Forest Service fish biologists – who’ve been called in to help explain what is now been revealed as “a series of metal boxes buried into the surf up and down the Oregon coast, and possibly as far down the coast as northern California” – is more than enough to catch one’s attention, added Doris in trying to explain “what’s not explainable.”

What is known is a “sustained whine of something akin to an ambulance siren” awoke locals near Stonefield Beach and other areas of the Oregon coast Sunday evening, Jan. 5, beginning at approximately 4 a.m.

At the same time, Doris said this area around Stonefield Beach is a very “quiet place,” where “nothing but seagulls and the Pacific Ocean waves to break the quiet.”

Brain plays tricks even when metal boxes appear

While these “metal boxes” buried up and down the Oregon coast are real to the touch and sight, a local professor of psychology – whose attempted to explain away the “strange goings on at both Bray’s Point and here at Stonefield Beach,” thinks the many “of these remote living residents who claim to see UFOs at night are simply not using the tool between their ears to figure this stuff out.”

In turn, this retired professor said in a Feb. 6 Huliq interview at Stonefield Beach that most locals and visitors here “looking for those UFOs” are more or less carrying their own “baggage or self-as-content,” with views and experiences that now seem to define them.

Doris added: “The doc is saying we’re all a bunch of nuts to believe in UFOs.”

What’s real about UFOs?

Yet, the professor – who specialized in repressed memories when he taught at university and had his own private practice – noted that Doris and others are in a sort of “constant frame of reference when they converse with each other that UFOs have appeared.”

“I’ve seen this Stonefield Beach crowd carry on at meetings about UFOs being spotted in the sky, and I’m confident they believe these things to be true.”

However, the professor says there’s “good hard science that can probably explain away each and every claim they’ve made about UFOs and aliens about at Stonefield Beach and Bray’s Point. But, this perspective comes at a cost,” he asserted; while stating that “such beliefs in UFOs can lead them to label themselves, either positively or negatively, in very limiting ways.”

For example, the professor said “I don’t know if these metal boxes are something to worry about or not.”

And, “I don’t know if Errol is an expert on UFOs. Just because people come to him with their stories of UFOs doesn’t make it real.”

"I prefer hard science," he added.

In this story above it is mentioned these strange boxes are appearing up and down the Pacific coastline, but I have done an extensive Google search for other references to strange boxes and come up empty. Is it truly a fact these boxes have been found elsewhere or is this a product of the rumor mill? I live in a coastal community and if an odd metal box showed up out of nowhere on the beach it would certainly make the news. Then our police and city council would hunt down the alien beings in order to impose fines on them for littering. I'm quite curious to read about these other box sightings.

A local professor of psychology? ...the professor said “I don’t know if these metal boxes are something to worry about or not.” This is the most ridiculous part of the whole story. I am not a scientist but if I were in Stonefield Beach I would have gotten out of my house and TV and went to see what these things were, and I would have kept my mouth shut until I had at least tried to find answers to the following questions instead of making snide remarks about my fellow townspeople. How many boxes? Where are they located in relationship to low tide/high tide, other points of land and each other? What are boxes made of? Are they smooth, rough, irregular, straight sided? Do they appear hollow or solid? Do they have any markings? Can they be scratched with a diamond ring? What are the exact dimensions? Has anyone attempted to excavate one to find out depth? Has the military or any REAL scientist investigated them?

If the Military is not already there, trying to take them, hide them from the public, we know who put he boxes there.

If the boxes where no threat to the military-or of no concern ....then the sounds emanating from them may be similar to the sounds that emanate from the "crowd-control" devices the military now has...again just a theory...but your comment makes sense...why is the military not all over these things?

Submitted by Jim643 (not verified) on
I agree, if the military hasn't thrown a tarp over these things and barricaded the area from public, then I would be suspect of who put em there ... basic procedures taught to firemen in the early 80's here in the US dictate actions for local authorities should some physical ET something land ... they had rules in print even as others denied existance of such things

The mainstream media ought to be all over this story. To think that large, metallic appearing boxes firmly implanted into the sand at or near sea level have appeared overnight, along the Oregon coast and perhaps the entire west coast, deserves full news coverage and investigation. The above questions by "I am Me" are very appropriate. Evidently, the psychology professor has lost his sense of curiosity, if he ever had one. We should also consider the question: How could any private, state or federal agency have implanted such boxes along the coast apparently overnight and without detection, unless the agency involved UFOs that were detected or allowed themselves to be detected? If one or more helicopters had been involved, dropping them into the wet sand, their noise would have attracted a lot of attention. And for what purpose -- just to attract the barking of dogs? Apparently it's another of those instances for which "science" cannot give a rational explanation, and so the news media shy away from it, especially if the phenomenon seems to have UFO connections. The crop-circle phenomenon is one such phenomenon, for which hoaxers' belated attempts to account for it have fallen far short, while UFO connections have been witnessed in a considerable number of cases. The recent loud, strange noises coming from the sky or from all around, and heard over large areas at many different locations world wide, is another instance; its UFO connection/source has been known to cetain investigators for years. Certainly one or more of the metallic boxes are being examined by some branch of the military, so we're not likely to hear about the results from them. As a PhD scientist and Fellow of the AAAS, I trust my own interpretation of this new phenomenon far more than what the psychology professor has offered, thanks to my having investigated the UFO phenomenon the past 30 years.

We haven't seen anything to confirm these events are even happening. It's a little premature to launch into conspiracy theory about what the media is not doing and why. You don't know the military is examining these boxes -- you don't even know if these boxes exist or are a fiction. As a PhD scientist and Fellow of the AAAS, you should know better than to proclaim an interpretation before there is evidence.

I think it was implied that the Oregon Forest Service fish biologists revealed this information to Doris, perhaps off-the-record. Such would seem like information a Federal nor State organization would provide the public if they didn't know what was happening. Yet, it does seems that at least one of these boxes have been noted by the public before any Federal or State organization did. Yes, it will be interesting to see if there are further public reports of this "phenomenon".

ive never been so outraged at such "intellectual" ignorance. to be able to say that ufo's dont exist, and that these people are crazy takes alot of blindfolding on the part of the docter. first you have to deny to yourself countless sightings spanning back to pre-history, including religious and cave wall texts. then you have to convince yourself that were completely alone in the universe, which is mathematicaly impossible, any docter should have the common sense to sort that out. this is typical of what i like to call a try hard atheist, in the name of their own self proclaimed "intellectuality" they deny anything that isnt generalized, widely already explored science, that offers little to no advancement to society, and this is because the man simply has an innability to see past the box. it takes alot of work, and a whole lot of ignorance to be this kind of person. in that respect I salute you, youll hold your ground even after aliens touch down, i just wonder what kinda mental crisis this will stir up in your xenophobic mind my dear psychologist.

Lyle is right! This ignorant "doctor" probably WILL hold his ground when faced with an alien. Not me, brother...when I saw a UFO a couple of years ago, I RAN AND HID! I dont wanna be the nex scientific experiment they do on us humans..I vote for sending up Dr.X instead!

23rd of September 1996, in Fife, a region which is a delta pointing out over the Scottish capital Edinburgh on a map, 4 people (after witnessing a flying triangle then going out of their houses to see if they could see anything more) claimed they'd seen "hundreds of alien beings" close to the village of Newton of Falkland - they picked up boxes from the grass, amongst a multitude of things they claim they saw. Following year, January 1997, an Idaho researcher communicated with the Scottish researchers to tell us that two women had set out from Portland in a car, saw a flying triangle over a wooded area, then saw "about a hundred" small aliens 'slide down a beam of light' then 'pick up boxes from out of the grass', "watched over by one thirty foot tall alien being". The Fife witnesses estimated three or four extra-terrestrials were "about twenty feet in height", but I know that they also said "about half the height of the trees", and when local people went round to the incident site they'd exclaimed "Half the height of those trees!? That would be thirty feet, not twenty feet!" So I tend to think the Portland girls made the better estimation. Linda Howe criticised the Scottish paranormal researcher for not simply repeating what the four Fife witnesses had stated regarding the heights of the tallest ones, because he tried to say "they must i' been overestimatin' the height because i' their position or somethin'", so I think Linda has been born out in time. It does seem to me that with such good correspondences between witnesses separated by the thousands of miles of the Atlantic Ocean, the government is running scared over this.

I totally agree with you. I had a hunch this Oregon incident wasn't the first. Unfortunately there are so many naysayers out there that are terrified of the unknown. Not everything can be explained scientifically because it's not meant to be. Of course the government is doing what it does best...pretending it doesn't exist. It's easier to mock the believers than to join them. So many small minds out there! It's a shame.

Thought the same thing.... Could be debris from the Fukashima disaster.Did any one check radiation levels on these things? If true, these 'boxes'could be extremely dangerous.

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on
It has been estimated that over the next few years, a great deal of debris form the Japan earthquake and Tsunami will was up on may shores! That is most likely what it is, and it should be tested for radiation!

Submitted by Seumas (not verified) on
If they are washed up debris from Japan, then it would be a good idea to dispose of them. If they are causing problems, destruction is also a very viable option, put a couple pounds of thermite on each one and let them melt through. Of course this second option only in the case that they are proven *not* to be radioactive debris. (the boxes sound as if they're causing problems, if they cause problems they should be demolished, simple as that.)

This is similar to the Montauk Monster scam on a Long Island Beach, in which after days of panicked speculation, it was an admitted scam. If this really had ET/UFO relevance then the Military and MSM would be all over it, and the beach would be closed-off. At best, it is merely another fictional distraction.

I do not know Mr. Masko, nor have I previously heard of the "huliq" website. All references to this story point back to the same article by Mr. Masko at that site. A check on huliq reveals that Mr. Maskos' avatar makes him appear to be a likeable enough fellow and he has written a large number of articles, on various eclectic topics, on that site. However, absent a coroborating source this doesn't really pass the smell test. Somewhere along the coast some local news organization would have been curious about the boxes whether or not they believed there was a UFO connection.

Hi Dave Masko, Thank you for your reply. We were beginning to wonder if the boxes actually existed, or if it was a photoshopped picture of a dog on a beautiful beach somewhere in this world or some other world. As you can see by all the comments by us "know nothings", we are following your story with bated breath. It would be interesting if some other people from other beaches where these have landed would also investigate their finds. My first guess from just looking at the picture would be that it was a float from under a boat dock or wharf that was washed out by the tsunami. Good luck.

Sad that Dave spends his time with this. Others have wasted their time and driven to this beach in Oregon and found nothing but rocks there. The picture is photoshopped. Search the forums at godlike productions for more details. In the meantime we can thank the author for wasting our time.

I have know idea what these boxes are nor have I ever seen (in person) any object or aircraft that couldn't be explained, but this fact doesn't mean they don't exist. As for the university professor who needs "hard science", your science wouldn't exist if it wasn't for people like the bunch in stonyfield thinking outside the box. Instead, you only regurgitate the information given to you by others in the excepted science community rather than exploring the infinite possibilities in this infinite universe. Keep looking up stonyfield beach bunch , your not crazy, your awake.

Ok, here's my theory. Look at the location of Stonefield Beach, Oregon, on Google Earth. It is on the west coast of the USA with the North Pacific lapping at it. Now, if this story is true, and the boxes do let off a, “sustained whine of something akin to an ambulance siren”, then is it not possible that they have been 'placed' there to act as an early warning system should an earthquake/Tsunami occur somewhere in the North Pacific? Maybe, just maybe, someone from somewhere, wants to give people living on the west coast of America a fighting chance should a massive natural disaster take place. It is 2012 afterall and there is, at the moment, constant 'activity' in the North Pacific near and around Japan. It wasn't that long ago that Tsunami brought Japan to it's knees therefore it is not unfeasible that the same could happen again, only with the Tsunami heading the other way towards the west coast of America. Just a theory but one that seems feasible if indeed the boxes do exist and have been subject to a 'special delivery' from out interstellar visitors...

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on
Hm...interesting theory. One worth noting- unlike the close-minded ranting of the non-believers that speak with no supporting evidence nor real experience to prove whether this is really an extraterrestrial situation or not. It doesn't take much to close your eyes and mind, but it takes true intelligence and courage to think outside the box. Fear of the unknown masked by arrogant judgmental speech and "scientists" who are very good at regurgitating information is nothing to be proud about nor display to others. Keep your fear and ignorance to yourself and you might just learn a thing or two by those with more brain capacity and courage to stray from the herd. I genuinely thank those putting themselves out there by sharing such information as well as those that have the intelligence to listen with an open mind.

If this story is true, where is the video of the boxes? Where are the town investigators, the local police, the news media (they live for this.)? Hundreds of metal boxes of this size that emit sound strewn along the Pacific ocean on US beaches from OR to CA is first and foremost a national security issue. So, if this story is real, where is everyone? If this is not a bogus story and the military is not there, I agreed with another writer--guess who put them there?
