|Cycloptic Aliens of Harrah|
An artist's depiction
9 year-old José Cantu woke up just before 6:30 am. and decided to let his mother sleep and make himself breakfast. As he was preparing his meal he glanced out the window and saw what he would later describe as a “little man” outside in the yard of his family’s farmhouse. José rushed into his parents’ bedroom and shook his mother, Martha Cantu, awake. Martha was alone in the bed as her husband had already left for work. Her son beseeched her to follow him and take a look at the strange figures “standing” in their yard, but Martha refused to follow him.
José claimed that as soon as he stepped into the yard he saw a pair of “greenish creatures,” which were approximately 3-feet in height. The first thing he noticed about these odd creatures was the fact that they did not have any legs, but seemed to be perched on rotating seats, which were connected to tubes and supported by a wide bases. The bases appeared to be supported by a plethora of small wheels or protuberances that they swiveled or possibly hovered on. The beings each had a pair of mushroom capped antennas, coarse hair, pig-like noses and a single eye wedged in the center of their circular heads. They also appeared to have tiny, seemingly vestigial, arms attached to rounded torsos.
