Zone of Silence | Source

The Zone of Silence also known as La Zona Del Silencio is situated four hundred miles away from El Paso Texas in Mexico. This place is a desert with high deposits of Uranium and Magnetite deposits.

This zone has many strange rocks and fossils. Mysterious happenings have been recorded over time that cannot be explained. To this day, no one has been able to explain the strange happenings in the Zone of Silence, and it remains a mystery unsolved.

The discovery of the Zone of Silence in Mexico

In 1930 a Francisco Sarabia a pilot reported that his instruments did not work properly and that his radio stopped working.

In 1970 an American missile fired from the White Sands Missile Base in New Mexico went off course and crashed ino the Zone of Silence. Some believe that the missile was pulled into this zone by strange magnetic forces.

The U.S Air Force Officials investigated the area where the missile had disappeared. It was found that both radio and satellite signals did not penetrate the Zone of Silence. The Mexican Government has constructed a research station to investigate the strange happenings in this area.

Strange happenings in the Zone of Silence

Strange activities such as mystic lights, UFO sightings and alien encounters have been reported in this zone. Some believe that this area could have been a portal for aliens from outer space.

There are no foolproof evidences to support the claims of extraterrestrial activities. The point to be noted is that many strange activities that cannot be explained occur from time to time in this area.

The Zone of Silence is parallel with the Egyptian pyramids and the Bermuda Triangle. It is located very close to the North of Tropic of Cancer. Scientists believe that this could be one of the reasons for the strange happenings in this area.

Disappearing signals

Engineer Harry de la Penna was responsible for discovering the disruption of signals in the Zone of Silence.

In 1966 Harry de la Penna an organic chemist visited the zone for a photographic survey.

Harry de la Penna and his group found that they were not able to communicate via walkie-talkies. They also found that portable radios did not work in the Zone of Silence.

TV signals cannot be received even today in Ceballos or the neighboring ranches. Scientists believe that there is a magnetic force that over powers the radio waves.

Scientists around the world visit this zone to explore the strange happenings of this area hoping to find a solution to this mystery. Recently the name of this zone has been changed to Mars de Tetys (Sea of Tetys) because it was under the bottom of the ocean millions of years ago.

Reported Incidents

!!) On October 13th, 1975 Ernesto, and Josefina Diaz drove to the Zone of Silence to collect strange rocks and fossils. After some time, they noticed a thunderstorm heading their way. They packed up their gear as fast as they could and drove away. They were unable to escape the thunderstorm and was caught up in the storm.

Their vehicle got stuck in the slushy desert sands, and they were not able to get their vehicle out of the mud. Suddenly from nowhere two figures approached them and pushed their vehicle out of the slush. When they got down to thank them, they were nowhere to be found. It was as though they had disappeared into thin air.

!!) In the evening of September 1976 the residents of Ceballos saw a giant object hovering in mid-air. Lights surrounded the object, and a deep humming sound was heard from the strange object.

!!) In 1976 the very first photograph of a UFO that landed near a “Magnetic Hill” by a person who was visiting the Zone of Silence. The photo shows a shiny silver object hovering in the air. As the object rose up to the sky, the person was able to take more pictures of the object.

!!) Ruben Lupez was driving through the Zone of Silence to visit a relative who stayed in Ceballos. As he was driving, he noticed that his engine began to stall. Suddenly he noticed five small figures standing along the roadside some distance away.

He noticed that the figures wore silver suits and helmets. As they approached the van, Lopez switched his engine to neutral. When he switched the engine to neutral the strange figures, disappeared into the desert. After this, the engine started functioning, and Lopez was able to drive his vehicle.

The Zone of Silence has ancient ruins, ruins that pose a difficult puzzle to the archaeologists. The origin and age of the ruins could not be determined and still remain a mystery. Archaeologists are sure that the ruins belonged to an ancient observatory built thousands of years ago.

      This is a very interesting hub and I don't think I want to visit that area. There are many things that happen in some areas of the world that we just can't explain, and I guess that is the case for the zone of silence. Excellent hub.

      Your title, Vellur, really caught my attention. Mysterious places like the Zone of Silence intrigue me. I find it very interesting that the area is parallel with the pyramids and the Bermuda triangle - there must be a strong connection there. I do not know if I dreamed it or read it somewhere, but there seems to be a pyramid structure on the ocean floor in the Bermuda Triangle, with crystals or one large crystal inside the pyramid. I will have to research to see if it is true.

      Your hub is so very interesting. Some really strange things going on there. Yes, I do believe in the existence of aliens.

      When this came up into the feed on the front page I read it once again with interest. There are many things of which we do not know and perhaps never will understand. Giving this a tweet and will share.

      This was a fascinating article. I had never heard of the Zone of Silence before. I think there are things on this earth we simply don't have the ability to understand. It's nice that way. We still have so many things to discover and learn.
