The Mystical Contactee Encounters of Dana Howard:
Parallels to Marian Apparitions?

by Regan Lee

00:05 December 20, 2007

There aren’t as many female Contactees of the Golden Age of UFOs as there are male, but there are a few. One was Dana Howard, who wrote about her encounters in My Flight to Venus (1954), Diane: She Came From Venus (1956), Over the Threshold (1957), Vesta, the Earthborn Venusian (1959), as well as others. As we can see, Howard was a prolific writer! (Daniel Fry, another Contactee, had a short announcement in his newsletter Understanding about Dana Howard’s appearances in California.) (In that same issue is a letter from Contactee Orfeo Angelucci!)

While I’m intrigued by the Contactees in general, and realize there are many perspectives and theories surrounding “what really happened” I’d like to focus on the symbolic of Howard’s experience, rather than attempt to prove or disprove her experience. What stood out for me as I read about Dana Howard’s accounts were the similarities to Marian Apparitions. Howard’s experiences seemed to be a blend of space age Contactee encounters, complete with flying saucers, and some of the characteristics of appearances of the Virgin Mary.
