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?

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.

You missed the point of those comments, why press or anyone not check better before printing this poorly made article? So If you print this article without making proper inquiry you will get ufo and strange statements! Pathetic presstitute!

Anyone w/half a brain knows psychology is a pseudoscience that would never have survived without the big whore Pharma to "legitimize" it with expensive poisonous drugs.

I guess you mean psychiatry, no? Psychology don't - and are not alowed to - work with drug based treatments. Well, at least no here in Brazil. Maybe i'm dealing with some language barrier here...
