George Adamski (April 17, 1891 April 23, 1965) was a Polish-born American who became known in ufology circles after he claimed to have photographed ships from other planets, met with "Space Brothers", and to have taken flights with them. He considered himself to be a "philosopher, teacher, student and saucer researcher."

Early Years

Adamski was born on April 17, 1891 in Poland. At the age of 2, he and his family emigrated to America and settled in New York City. At the age of 22, from 1913 to 1916, he was a soldier in the 13th US Cavalry Regiment K-Troop fighting at the Mexican border during the Pancho Villa Expedition. In 1917, he married. Adamski then moved west, working as a maintenance worker in Yellowstone National Park, and as a worker in an Oregonflour mill. While in Laguna Beach, Adamski founded the "Royal Order of Tibet," which held its meetings in the "Temple of Scientific Philosophy." In 1940, Adamski and some close friends of his moved to a ranch near California's Palomar Mountain where they dedicated their time to studying and farming. In 1944, with funding from Mrs. Alice K. Wells - a student of Adamski - they purchased 20 acres of land on Palomar Mountain, where they built a new home called Palomar Garden and a new restaurant called Palomar Gardens Cafe.

On October 9, 1946, during a meteor shower, Adamski and some friends claimed that while they were at the Palomar Gardens' campground, they witnessed a large cigar-shaped "mother ship." In 1947, Adamski took a photograph of what he claimed was the 1946 cigar-shaped "mother ship" crossing in front of the moon over Palomar Gardens.

On May 29, 1950 Adamski took a photograph of six unidentified objects in the sky, which appeared to be flying in formation. Adamski's May 29, 1950 UFO photograph was depicted in an August 1978 commemorative stamp issued by the island nation of Grenada in order to mark the "Year of UFOs".

On November 20, 1952 Adamski and several friends were in the Colorado Desert near the town of Desert Center, California when they are said to have seen a large submarine-shaped object hovering in the sky. Believing that the ship was looking for him, Adamski is said to have left his friends and to have headed away from the main road. Shortly afterwards, according to Adamski's accounts, a scout ship made of a type of translucent metal landed close to him, and its pilot, a Venusian called Orthon, disembarked and sought him out.

Adamski described Orthon as being of medium height humanoid, having long-blond hair, a tanned skin , and as wearing reddish-brown shoes with a trouser: "his trousers were not like mine". Adamski said Orthon communicated with him via telepathy and through hand signals. During their conversation, Orthon is said to have warned of the dangers of nuclear war and to have arranged for Adamski to be taken on a trip to see the solar system including the planet Venus, the location where Mrs. Adamski had been reincarnated. Adamski said that Orthon had refused to allow himself to be photographed, and instead asked Adamski to provide him with a blank photographic plate, which Adamski says that he gave him. When Orthon left, Adamski said that he and George Hunt Williamson were able to take plaster casts of Orthons footprints, and that the prints contained mysterious symbols.

Orthon is said to have returned the plate to Adamski on December 13, 1952, at which point it was found to contain new strange symbols. It was during this meeting that Adamski is said to have taken a, now famous, UFO photograph using his 6-inch telescope.

In 1954, Desmond Leslie is said to have witnessed several UFOs with Adamski while visiting him in California. He described one of them in a letter he sent to his wife while he was in San Diego:

"A beautiful golden ship in the sunset, but brighter than the sunset . . . It slowly faded out, the way they do." - Desmond Leslie,
In 1957 Adamski was the victim of a hoax letter sent by James W. Moseley. The letter was signed by the fictional "R.E. Straith", a representative of the non-existent "Cultural Exchange Committee" of the U.S. State Department. Straith wrote that the U.S. Government knew that Adamski had actually spoken to extraterrestrials in a California desert in 1952, and that a group of highly-placed government officials planned on public corroboration of Adamski's story. Adamski was proud of this endorsement and showed it around to bolster his claims (Moseley & Pflock 2002:124-27, 180).

In May 1959, Adamski received a letter from the head of the Dutch Unidentified Flying Objects Society informing him that she had been contacted by officials at the palace of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, and "that the Queen would like to receive you.". Adamski informed a London newspaper about the invitation, which prompted the court and cabinet to request that the queen cancel her meeting with Adamski, but the queen went ahead with the meeting saying that, "A hostess cannot slam the door in the face of her guests." After the meeting, Dutch Aeronautical Association president Cornelis Kolff said, "The Queen showed an extraordinary interest in the whole subject." On May 21, 1959, the Rockford Register published an article on Adamski's visit with Queen Juliana and what was rumored to be an upcoming visit with Queen Elizabeth II of England.

Adamski said that the photographs of the far side of the Moon that were taken by the Soviet lunar probe Luna 3 in 1959 were fake and that there were cities, trees, and snow-capped mountains there instead.

In 1962, Adamski's reputation began to decline after he announced that he would be going to a conference on the planet Saturn. In 1963, Adamski claimed that he had a secret meeting with Pope John XXIII and that he had received a "Golden Medal of Honor" from the Pope. Adamski, at the request of the extraterrestrials he was in contact with, met with the Pope in order to request a "final agreement" from him because of his decision not to communicate directly with any extraterrestrials, and also to offer him a liquid substance in order to save the him from gastric enteritis that he suffered from, which would later become acute peritonitis.

On April 23, 1965 at the age of 74, Adamski died of a heart attack in Maryland.
