 (The planets of the stars in the LYRA region seeded our Earth and Mars - and also the planets in the Pleiades. The "I" in the text below refers to Stevens, the investigator.)


In 1977 a new and different spacecraft landed on the drive in front of the Meier home and he went out to investigate.

There he saw a circular disk-shaped craft with a high cupulo on top sitting about 1 meter above the ground on a very coherent straight-sided beam of white light.

The disk-shaped lower part of the strange craft was of a bright matt silver color and was rotating slowly in a counterclockwise direction. The rim, or edge, of the disk about 60 cm thick, was squared off into vertical sides which seemed to consist of myriads of small flapper vanes mounted vertically, and which moved from right to left and back again through a 90 degree arc in a rythmic sequence.

A 3 meter diameter underflange of the base of the craft projected down about 20 cm below the lower disk surface and was also squared off on the sides. The intense white light which seemed to support the ship was projected down vertically from this lower flange.

Inside of the intense white light Meier could see a cantilever stair of 5 steps descending from the lower center of the craft to the ground surface.

Back to the rim, he could see that as it rotated slowly and the vertical flapper vanes moved back and forth, an aura of rainbow colors was thrown off to the sides around the rim.

The 7 meter diameter main disk structure was about 1.5 meters measured from top to bottom, and the lower surface showed more of a curve than the upper.

On top of that a 2.5 meter diameter cupulo with 1 meter vertical sides having 8 bulging hemispherical windows set into them, rose to a 70 cm thick rolled static ring having about the same 3 meter diameter as the bottom underflange of the base. This part was a luminous orange color and a bright yellow-white light shown from the "windows".

The top of this cupulo structure blended into a smooth curved dome of some kind of colored dark glass. It looked like glass and has a smooth finish but he could not see any reflections in its surface.

This craft carried 3 beings aboard - one of whom introduced herself as Menara, from a place in the heavens near the star system Lyra. She said that her native planet has a population of 14 billion and belongs to a confederation of planets. She said that her people work closely with the DALs and the Pleiadians on certain things, and that those intelligences were aware of her activities here. Another member aboard the ship was identified as Alena. They were both darker skinned and had long slender forms. The Lyrians have more than one racetype of beings on their planet.

Menara said that her ship could travel in time as well as space and offered the mind boggling note that her ship was constructed 300 years in our future but that it had been in use for over 250 years already.

It appears that there is an ascending order of technological development here. The Pleiadians say their technology is about 3000 years in advance of ours but that the DALs are about 350 Earth years of technology ahead of them, and that they are assisted technologically by the DALs.

Now we have a race of beings from Lyra who seem to be several thousand years ahead of the DALs, who help the DALs and the Pleiadians in certain respects. This may give us some clue to the kind of guidance offered us by the Pleiadians.

The contact with the beings from Lyra is also continuing and more landings have taken place, including another landing in snow 12 cm deep, where the characteristic circular landing track was melted through the snow and ice clear to the ground.


In a passing conversation on another matter, "Billy" casually mentioned the Vegans, beings who come here from the direction of the constellation Vega. Further inquiry developed the information that the Vegan technology is only about 250 years ahead of that of the Pleiadians, and that they also are in contact with the DALs, and were in fact assisted by the DALs just as were the Pleiadians. The Pleiadians, the Vegans, the DALs and the Lyrians all belong to the same lifestream, which also includes us! There are others not known to Meier and not elaborated upon by these entities.

The being identified as Alena returned at another time in her own ship, having signaled Meier telepathically in advance. She arrived in still another style of spacecraft which Meier had not seen before. She explained that she, and others like her, come from a planet in the star-system Vega, which is a part of the constellation Lyra as viewed from here.

The Vegans are darker in color still than the Lyrians, and look a little like Hottentots except with higher cheekbones and more triangular faces.

The Vegans, as explained to Meier, are really descended from the early Lyrians also, as are the Pleiadians and us. Their ancestry is a little older than that of the Pleiadians.

The Vegans arrive at our surface in 8 meter diameter circular craft that land, or rather hover, on a coherent beam of plasmic energy 40 to 50 cm above the ground. This plasma efflux flows downward only 30 to 40 cm and then curls out and up in an almost ring-like coil. The efflux looks more like a very definite length curtain of bluish-white flame with a ring around the bottom, except that it flows constantly.

Meier says that the efflux looks like it comes out of a hatched grating of very heavy metal mesh inside the circular bottom surface.

The ship has a raised dome of transparent material in many pie-shaped sections, or else it is one piece with transparent ribs that rise vertically and meet at the top. The cupulo is surrounded at the base by a smooth brushed silver ring of a stainless steel color. >From this ring plate to the rim of the ship the upper surface skin is fluted with the sharper creases up.

The bottom of the craft has a smooth stainless steel-like finish from the perimeter of the plasma efflux up to the rim. The rims do not come together but have a narrow gap which is filled by a circular small-fluted plate of very peculiar shape. Instead of being truly circular like the rims of the disk-sections, it has a 4-lobed shape as viewed from above. This fluted plate rotates rapidly in a counter-clockwise direction between the rims. The rapidly rotating fluted section gives off an orange glow.


Exactly how the DALs fit into the relationship is not clear at this time. They are a handsome Nordic-looking race so like northern European Caucasians that they could pass in conventional clothes on our streets unnoticed.

The DALs arrive in circular disk-shaped spacecraft also but their ships have a little lower profile and land flat on the ground on a flat-surfaced bottom. The bottom has 3 light colored rings and 2 dark colored rings and a dark center in the flat surface of the bottom which was not explained.

(Meier succeeded in photographing a DAL spacecraft at about 16:00 in the afternoon on 3 July 1964 as it flew over the Ashoka Ashram on Gurgoan Road at Mehrauli, near New Delhi, India.)

The next section up is a lighter metallic rim that rises almost vertically to a dark metallic rim that joins another light colored metallic piece which forms the upper disk flange to the raised cupulo in the center.

The DALs can also breathe our atmosphere directly and do not need environmental headgear to debark from their ship. Exit and egress from the DAL ship is through the canopy section of the dome which raises on a rear hinge arrangement. The cabin of the ship Meier was allowed to inspect, and has seats for three. He had photographed this type of ship earlier. It is also about 8 meters in diameter.


This was all becoming a little confusing and so the Pleiadians offered a brief history to get it into perspective. According to the explanation offered, the Lyrians were the original (to us at least) ancestors of our branch of our lifestream of evolution.

Many thousands of years ago their civilization in Lyra reached a high technological level and they began to travel in space. They were free-will creatures and had control of their destiny. At a certain point in time they fell into disagreement and divided into factions with different ideaologies and different goals and objectives. They eventually went to war and destroyed much of their society and ruined their home. Escapists seeking to avoid the anticipated outcome fled from their native system and found homes in star systems that we call the Pleiades and the Hyades. They also went to nearby Vega.

In a few thousands of years they had raised those societies to high technological levels and once again were able to travel in space. Some of the Pleiadians of Lyrian ancestry, on their travels, discovered our planet and its nascent life evolving in a very hospitable atmosphere. They stayed and settled briefly in later Lemuria and early Atlantis, some even mixing with Earth creatures and becoming Earth men.

Those who remained apart and did not mix soon produced highly evolved technologies here and they designed and built many wonderful machines and devices, and created comforts and conveniences of all kinds.

Again they came into conflict and the society became polarized into two camps, each possessing marvelous technologies. Eventually they went to war and terrible destruction resulted. Those who could, escaped to other regions of space and started all over again. Some of those beings are now also visiting us occasionally.

A long time later a new wave of Pleiadians arrived to check on the descendants of their ancestors who survived the terrible war. They found survivors and again they mixed with them and assisted Earth humanity in getting control of its assets and producing a new technology. This society became the later Atlanteans who raised their sciences to levels that produced air and undersea travel before that civilization was also destroyed by surface war on Earth.

The modern Pleiadians are descendants of the peaceful faction that settled in the star group which astronomy gives that name. The Vegans visiting us now are descendants of another peaceful group that settled a planet in the Vega System.

The descendants of the Lyrians, long evolved beyond the conflict stage, are now interested in our welfare and feel a special responsibility toward us since we reflect the earlier warlike tendencies of themselves. They lost much in their history of conflict and destroyed themselves several times, and lost their great technological advances each time. According to the story, they even settled another hospitable planet in our solar system, the 5th one from the sun, which was actually destroyed in a war of nuclear weapons that got out of hand there. This is part of their concern about how we will use our nuclear sciences now. These Lyrians are now being helped and assisted in certain ways by their human cousins in the Pleiades and Vega and others.

So we see that although the Lyrians are much older in evolution, they are only a little ahead of the others in some technologies and are behind in others, and are being assisted along the way by their cousins. Thus it is that so many human-like extraterrestrials are appearing in the same age in time. Some are actually linked in evolution and do apparently have a common source. Our re-emerging technology attracts their attention now and they are here to observe and assist according to our will choices.

The Lyrian races began evacuating their home planet over 22 million years ago, and they have peaked out and migrated from there more than once. They believe that Creation itself is the First Cause, not that a Creator created it. They see creation as Universal Knowledge, Universal Wisdom, Universal Spirit. They told Meier that there are milliards of creation forms known to them.

They also told him that our earliest society on Earth was copied from the early Lyrians visiting Earth. They were here and observed physical life on Hyperboria, a mythical first continent encompassing all of the land mass at that time. This was before Earth humans began physical evolution. Descendants of these Lyrians came again later and assisted the budding societies of the next epoch and gave Lemuria and Atlantis their names.

There were other beings from another system called Bawwi who also visited the Earth at that time. The Bawwi were a race of beings 2.5 to 3 meters tall. There were once beings visiting Earth who were 7 to 8 meters tall. They had feet 90 to 93 cm long and fossil tracks should still exist. On what we now call Easter Island there was a special race of very big people an unimaginable 10 to 11 meters tall. They were not entirely physical. Whole histories of Hyperboria, Agartha, Mukulia and Atlantis have been described by the Pleiadians. On an extended visit in space, Meier was shown another atmospheric planet with life in an earlier stage of evolution. He saw dinosaur-like creatures, a stocky primitive man wearing skins and steep pyramids in the distance in a very misty golden atmosphere. He was told that this planet would be 770 light years from Earth.

According to the Pleiadian account, the Lyrians left their system as rebels and settled in the Pleiades and the Hyades. They later came to Earth and mixed with Earth man. Earth men then lived in the remnants of the earlier single continental land mass now known as Hyperboria. These beings produced and developed a civilization with advanced technology here on Earth. They became involved in a war among themselves here and a faction left and proceeded to Erra in the Pleiades, and others went to another planet in our solar system, an atmospheric planet the 5th from the sun, which they called Malona. They settled on this planet and mixed with the human life-form there.

The Lyrian descendants who settled Earth and Malona both were a war-like race and they carried their warlike tendencies with them. The Malonans ended up destroying their planet in a terrible atomic holocaust. Will we do the same?

The surviving Lyrians left for many thousands of years. Subsequent generations came back in another age and again fell to fighting among themselves and again they left. This was repeated still once more, and now the descendants of those are again observing Earth and the surviving descendants of their ancestors.

The Lyrian rebels have now reached a higher spiritual level of being and no longer indulge in conflict and war. Their ancestors are responsible for the racial variety now found on Earth.

So we see that we and the Pleiadians, and the Vegans, and some other Adamic beings who come here from the Hyades, are all in a sense Lyrian descendants, and we are linked by a common heritage. The current Lyrian visitors, with their higher spirituality, are here trying to undo some of the effects left by their earlier less spiritual ancestors.

The older Lyrian ancestors due to their underdeveloped spirituality fell into stagnation and lost much of their technology. The Pleiadians are now helping them back on their way to the marvelous technologies they once had. The Vegans, also descendants of the old Lyrians, are too helping the Lyrians to recover some of their old advanced sciences and introducing them to some new ones. The Pleiadians have been helped much by the DALs and are passing some of this on to the Lyrians, and are in turn being helped by the Lyrians in other ways.


Although the Pleiadians appear very healthy by our standards, they are affected by our atmosphere. Not enough that they have to use environmental suits but they do have sinus problems from prolonged exposure in our air. Their home planet atmosphere is very similar to ours but we have more pollutants in our air. They say that after prolonged living in the purer conditions of the spacecraft they are even affected, to a much lesser degree, by their home planet's atmosphere.

Their hands are very similar to ours but finer and more flexibly articulated. They have fine skin on their hands.

All Pleiadians have small gardens and work them with their own hands. It is a part of maintaining contact with their Creation. They each work two hours per day in their factories - mostly overseeing automated machines and robots. They are all educated in a great many sciences.

The Pleiadians go to school until they are in their 70s. In 10 years of school they reach an educational level equivalent to a 25 year old college graduate here. Everyone must be thoroughly familiar with 12 to 20 professions.

They do not marry until they are at least 70 years old. They mature in body in 12 to 15 years. They do not marry until they have completed their chosen education. The median age for those who do marry is about 110 years. Both parties must pass strict mental and physical examinations before they are permitted to marry. They are not required to marry and many do not.

In birth they rely on natural partrition with no anesthetic. They find that their brain chemistry is changed by anesthesia. The force of will of the baby is affected and will be reduced to some degree.

Life on Erra is peaceful and harmonious. Everyone strives for his very best for the good of all.

If we were to go to the Pleiadian's home planet, Erra, we would not see much because the life and civilization and all its works exist in a slightly different dimension and time frame. Their time is altered slightly which also affects their vibrational state of being. They must adjust this time and vibration a little in order to contact us and we would have to do the same to perceive their native existence.

The Pleiadians say that every human has a direct responsibility to help every other one to grow in consciousness. Creation requires every unit of life, within itself, to constantly grow forward. Each unit has this responsibility as well to every other unit.

The unexpected thing, which after all really should not be unexpected, is to find reason and logic in the interrelationship of all these odd events. I wondered why all of this activity in only one place in the world, and was then told that Switzerland is not the only location where this activity is taking place. The Pleiadians even told Meier that they have more ground stations in use on our surface, one in the United States and one in the East.

In a discussion of the Pleiadian ground station in the Alps, which is presently headed by Quetzel, one of Meier's frequent contacts, I learned that that station has been in existence for over 70 years! It is in a closed valley between high peaks and has no roads in or out, being inaccessible from the surface. It is fully protected and cannot be seen from the air. While we were on the subject of Pleiadian facilities, I was determined to find out more about the large "mother-ship" in solar orbit, and again I was reminded of the reason for not volunteering information. There isn't enough time to discuss all that one could. The discussion of the "mother-ship" took almost half a day and we had barely scratched the surface.

Basically, it is not just 10.5 mile sphere in space, but an assembly consisting of one such sphere, 3 smaller several mile diameter spheres joined to the central one 120 degrees apart and below the central one, and a smaller control pod one half to three quarter mile in diameter mounted on a long extension 3 to 4 miles or more above the main sphere. The whole construction is close to 35 km long. This is entirely built up and assembled in space and is not dependent on any planet. The 3 lower spheres contain the manufacturing facilities and the many factories, repair shops, and food production and processing centers for the whole colony. The larger central sphere contains all of the living quarters, parks, recreational facilities, and the spacecraft hangar decks. The small upper pod on a long narrow extension is the central control and communication center for the whole ship.


But these cousins in the human line of evolution are not all that are here observing us either. There are a number of others so engaged.

We have been working for over two years on another UFO contact case that began in July of 1967, one of the heaviest UFO activity periods recorded in modern times, and is still going on. These extraterrestrials come from an atmospheric planet about 10 light years from Earth, a planet which they call Iarga. It has a diameter and mass greater than that of Earth, and the acceleration of gravity at the surface is stronger. The atmosphere is much more dense than ours. They said an Earth human would be pelted to death in the rain on their planet. The speed of rotation is slower making the days and nights longer, but reflected sunlight from the regular twilight can brighten certain nights. Because of the thicker atmosphere and higher air pressure at the surface, which is even a different composition than ours, Iarga knows no bright sunlight and sees nothing of moons and stars. Green predominates as the atmospheric color.

The creatures there are a little larger than us are look quite different. They are very stockily built. Their ship and its equipment and furnishings give evidence of a very highly advanced technology.

Another contact that has been going on since October of 1969, and still continues, involves a lifeform from another atmospheric planet orbiting a sun some 20 light years away near the star we call Epsilon Eridani. We believe the star indicated to be 82 Eridani as this is a G5 star quite similar to our own sun which is in spectral class GO and is about the right 20 light years distance away.

These creatures were larger, like 7 to 7.5 feet tall, and were covered with wrinkled skin and had very large arms with 3 fat fingers on the end. The skin has plates and wrinkles, something like crocodile skin. They had strange faces and a large mouth and very large ears, but they, like the Iargans demonstrated a highly advanced technology.

Still another recurring contact case we are working on more recently, involves the smaller hairless alien creatures with white skin, large domed heads, large eyes and small facial features. They have slightly built bodies and are only about 4 feet tall. [These extraterrestrials are the ones now commonly known as the Greys.]

Their ships are marvelous machines and they have wonderful devices aboard but they don't seem to be a great deal more advanced than us in some respects. Their technology seems to be just beyond ours, like we might conceivably build such devices in a few more hundreds of years of time.

These creatures say that they come from the twin suns which we call Zeta 1 and Zeta 2 Reticuli, and that they have been operating here and studying Earth and its creatures for decades. It is said that their large eyes are very light sensitive and for that reason they tend to only come to the surface of Earth at night.

We have just begun investigations into another recurring contact case nearer to our home here in Arizona that has also been going on for many years and involves an extensive transmittal of highly technical evidence of a most advanced nature. We believe that this sort of contact is going on in all countries all over the world if we would just make the effort to identify the cases and spend a little money to properly investigate them.

We are in fact being invaded by alien intelligences on a grand scale, who generally do not seem to be hostile, but we should be aware of it and its possible effects on our lives and our future.

These beings [the Pleiadians and most of the other human-like races mentioned earlier] all come under the authority of a confederation of planets in our sector of space headed by a High Council which sits in Andromeda - non-physical beings who exist in a different kind of energy form. The Cygnusians, information on which we encountered in our last investigative trip, are also under the jurisdiction of the High Council in Andromeda, but they belong, with others, to a different stream of evolution.

I asked Meier if he could tell me any more about that strange being he met in the woods near his home on one of his contacts, the one that said "Murrg" - "Muurrrg", and he repeated that story with more details this time. The contact took place quite nearby. The creature, wearing a kind of spacesuit, had large bulging eyes, very wide spade mouth, no hair, and a dark oily-looking skin, possibly even wet-looking. It approached him slowly with open hands held in front as if showing that it was not carrying weapons to attack. The creature stopped in front of him and stared for a number of seconds and pronounced the words, waited a few more seconds and then turned away and walked slowly into the night.

A short time later Meier asked Semjase about this and she showed surprise and offered to check into it. She subsequently informed him that the creature was from a planet in the star picture Swan (Cygnus), that the creature's spacecraft was damaged on entry into our atmosphere, and that it was seeking assistance. It's name was Asina. It's distress signal (now this is amazingly logical) was picked up by the Pleiadians and they sent a Pleiadian party to help the Cygnusians out. While the Cygnusian spacecraft was being repaired, Semjase brought Asina back with her on a contact with Meier and he was then able to communicate with the being telepathically. The Cygnusians are from a different evolution and little of the exchange was understood.

There are many more cases like this that have such an abundance of information and evidence in them that a hoax of this magnitude would be too costly for any but a very wealthy person to afford.

Meier has met representatives from most of these places mentioned so far, at one time or another, and in some cases several times, and still other beings too.

Now it becomes a little more clear and the whole fantastic program of contact makes sense. We are simply the younger brothers in an ongoing stream of life and intelligence, and are being visited, in this case at least, by our Kind who are a little way ahead and are interested in the welfare and development of their species.


One day as we were sitting in "Billy's" office, I asked him if he knew what the Pleiadians thought of our efforts toward reporting this case to the public. His off-hand answer amazed me. He said that he had checked that very thing with them and their answer was that they had looked into the future and found our feature documentary movie well done and the information handled well, that they agreed that this first movie should be limited to exposing the case on a mass international scale for its effect, and that it would succeed in getting attention beyond our expectations, that those who were ready for the messages of the Pleiadians would find their own way to them, that the others, the great bulk of the viewers, in any case had been informed and awakened to the possibilities and would never forget.

They saw a second film covering the messages and the trips Meier had made aboard their spacecraft, and even a third one discussing their history, philosophy and ours.


The text of this article was obtained from "UFO Contact from the Pleiades", by Wendelle Stevens, and includes most of the text from Chapter 11 "Other Cosmonauts" and some from Chapter 12 "Re-Investigation", in which it is reorganized and combined the text some. The book mainly concerns the Billy Meier case of the 1970's, in which Meier was visited numerous times by the Pleiadian extraterrestrials.

here to include from another source/contactperson on claimed pfysical Vega/lyra-contacts - extract from


"One 'contactee', incidentally, has stated that a large 'space port' does in fact exist in a network of caverns deep below present-day Death Valley.

In reference to this we will quote from a 'synopsis' of the experiences of Brazilian 'contactee' Jefferson Souza, as it appeared in a catalog put out by the UFO LIBRARY (11684 Ventura Blvd. #708., Studio City, CA 91604). Many of the individuals referred to in this catalog, which offers taped interviews or lectures describing their encounters, are either 'contactees' who have had friendly encounters with the so-called 'Nordic' or human-like beings who pilot many of the 'alien' craft; or who have been 'abducted' by the more manipulating and predatory 'Gray' or 'saurian' entities. Quoting from their description of Mr. Souza's experiences:

"Reaction to the first sighting of a UFO is unpredictable. Jeff Souza had his first contact in 1979 when he was only 13. The memory of it was tucked away in the recesses of his mind. Twenty alien contacts during the next 10 years never fully restored the image. But those years were filled with excitement that would result in one of the most inspirational stories of alien contact ever recorded.

"The young Brazilian was possessed of intelligence and intuition. He studied and managed to complete one semester of medical school before giving up his formal education.

"In contact with two races of extraterrestrials, Jeff has met them in Brazil, Argentina and the United States. But where they occurred is unimportant when compared to the depth and cope of what he learned.

"The gentle VEGANS and the business-like UMMITES taught Souza more than he could ever imagine about technology and life on all planets. He was transported aboard a spaceship by LIGHT (anti-gravity rays? - Branton) and taken to other planets and (other) parts of the world. On one such trip he suffered an unusual reaction - all his hair fell out. His watch broke at every contact.

"Jeff Souza has been questioned by experts in the field of alien contact. He has been clinically regressed through hypnotism to the time of his first contact but the answers came only in Portuguese. At that age, Jeff could not speak English.

"The details he has learned are awe inspiring. Answers to questions about time, space, matter, energy, life and spirituality easily rolled from his tongue. All prompted by the alien contacts of his past and present.


"There is a final precaution from his contacts - we must all learn the lessons given to Jeff Souza because we are destroying our planet and if we don't change, not even the friendly aliens will be able to save us."

We see here then a definite connection between the subterranea of the Death Valley region, which is reportedly inhabited by the neo-Grecian (?) Hav-musuvs and the human societies in 'Vega' and 'Ummo', which as we shall see later on, according to other contactees, are "Federated" with other human colonies or civilizations in Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani, Alpha Centauri, the Pleiades and elsewhere.

Although Jefferson Souza claims to have encountered the Ummo People in landed craft, the Vegans are the ones who allowed him to travel on their craft most often. It was also the Vegans who showed him the MASSIVE basing complex below Death Valley, which contained chambers miles in diameter and numerous compartmentalized sectors which had been adapted to meet the gravitational, atmospheric and environmental needs of the various Federation world representatives who use the base as a way-station for their operations on earth. Apparently the Hav-musuvs have been VERY BUSY for the last few thousand ears, if we are to believe Souza's account.

In addition to the above, Souza learned of two other alien species that are in conflict to some extent with the humanoids with whom he maintained contact. One of these includes an "Insectoid" type race, while the other is reptilian. The latter consists of a tall, very reptilian-saurian appearing "master" race to which the shorter reptilian "Grays" are subservient. There are at least three types of "Grays", according to Souza: those that reproduce via egg-hatcheries, those that reproduce via cloning, and those that reproduce via polyembryony.
