We have all read story's about humans being abducted by aliens and taken aboard UFOs for tests, strange experiments, and even sexual encounters. But what about when an "alien" pops round to your house to pay you a visit. These encounters are rare but have happened.
The case of a woman from the Aston area of Birmingham, UK is one story that certainly makes anything seem possible in terms of alien encounters.
In 1957 a mom named Cynthia Appleton claimed to have had suffered a missing time lapse in which she felt was an alien trying to contact her that went wrong. A few days after this apparent failed contact attempt Cynthia claimed that her living room was overcome by a strange electrical charged smoke that made the room misty and static. It was in this static charged atmosphere that a human looking alien seemed to emerge from the smoke and take form. Cynthia said the alien was a tall blond man, muscular in appearance. This human looking "alien" wore an all in one tight fitting jump suit and did not talk through his mouth but instead used telepathy to communicate with her.
The alien told Cynthia that she had no reason for alarm and that he came from a place called Gharnasvarn. The alien said that his people ( The Gharnasvarns) were keen to be allies with humans but it was hard because of humans violent methods. The alien not only used telepathy to communicate with Cynthia Appleton but also 3D images that he apparently made visible in mid-air.
Cynthia was paid a visit by this alien on more then one occasion. The second meeting started off much like the first, the alien appeared from a mist of statically charged smoke and was in Cynthia's once house again. Strangely enough, this was the last time the human looking alien arrived by such a strange method. He visited Cynthia a total of 8 times and for the 6 other times he arrived by car, knocking on the front door of Cynthia's house. Cynthia said when he started arriving by a more normal way he also changed his clothing from an all-in-one jump suit to an outdated suit and hat.
This alien started to reveal his knowledge to Cynthia, explaining various information which included how to cure cancer and the procedure to make a laser. Cynthia Appleton was just a normal mom, and she was confused as to why the alien had chose her out of the millions of people world wide to contact and convey secrets to. Why not contact someone higher up the chain? The alien said that Cynthia had the gift mentally, perhaps similar to Extrasensory perception and was one of the few that could be contacted. I guess this is similar to some "sensitive" people having the ability to see ghosts and some (most) people don't.
Cynthia Appleton was less then thrilled at being "chosen". In 1958 the alien confided in Cynthia that she would be having a baby that would belong to his race, The Gharnasvarns. The pair did not have an intimate relationship so Cynthia was shocked when she went to the doctors and was told she was in fact pregnant. It should be known that Cynthia was a married woman so it's not exactly impossible for her to become pregnant. She already had two children also. Artificial insemination is a possibility but was not the only strange detail about this pregnancy. The alien also knew intimate details of when the baby would be born (predicted to the correct day), and the baby's weight. How did the alien even knw she was pregnant? The baby was also born with blond hair. Although it should be noted that Cynthia was herself blond haired and blue eyed.
Cynthia Appleton was interviewed by numerous professionals and all of them came to the same conclusion. She was an honest, stable, and sane woman. On one of the aliens visits to Cynthia he apparently burnt his hand and while Cynthia was cleaning the burn a piece of skin fell off. This piece of skin was kept by Cynthia and in turn was sent to university labs in Birmingham and Manchester for testing. Both labs were stumped. The skin sample could not be identified but it was agreed that the skin sample had more characteristics of something "animal like" then a humans skin.
What isn't clear is what became of the baby boy, who they called Matthew that was apparently conceived by some form of artificial alien insemination. Did Matthew end up with the Gharnasvarn aliens, or did he grow up to have a normal life on Earth totally unaware of the strange circumstances that surrounded his birth. Cynthia and family moved away from the area and were never tracked down.
