The detail of the aircraft is a sensation. And if not a plane, but a UFO? Or

a gift can be considered the famous “Betsev sphere”, so named after
surnames of the family of the American farmer who found this mysterious
TOак был найден странный металлический шар
This happened in Florida, near the city of Jacksonville.
At the end of March 1974, after the last forest fires, the family
Betz, inspecting their land for damage, ran into
polished metal ball, weighing about 10 kilograms and
measuring just over 20 centimeters in diameter. No damage
it was not there, although there was a 3 mm triangular mark.
It was surprising that the ball did not leave even a dent in the ground, and
there was nowhere to appear, except to fall from the sky.
The farmer took the find with him, although he did not know how
way you can use this piece of iron. However, after two
weeks his youngest son Wayne accidentally discovered that the ball found

The ball was “alive”
Soon, the Betts faced an even bigger mystery: the sphere turned out to be
�”Alive” because I was able to ride through the rooms myself,
and clearly consciously or under the influence of someone else, only by her
captured, teams. The ball froze, then rolled again,
turned in different directions – and never ran across
obstacles as if I saw them.
Moreover, its mobility was directly related to the weather: in
On clear days, the ball rolled much more actively than on rainy days, and
constantly striving on the sunny side of the room. In the same time
the fireplace or the lamp did not attract him.
The popularity of the Betz family is growing
Soon the farmer realized that he had found something phenomenal, and therefore
I decided to share my discovery with scientists. For starters, he turned
to the Jacksonville Journal newspaper, which hurried to send to
Lon Anger’s photojournalist farm. Here is how he described what he saw in
his sensational article: the ball could be put on the floor and
push – he obediently rolled, but on his own
stopped, turned where he wanted, described the arcs, returned
to you – and never stumbled upon anything. He was like a living …
After Enger’s article about the mysterious “sphere of the Betz”, the whole
country, the farm began to besiege dozens of reporters, then appeared
ufologists, scientists and, finally, the military. TOрис Бернингер, представитель
The US Navy, later recalled that the ball rolled on the floor as he told him
Meanwhile, the activity of the mysterious sphere has increased: now it
began to publish some organ melodies in the house for no reason
doors and windows began to open and close, and at any time
day and night. Tired of all these wonders, the family Betz decided
get rid of the mystical ball, passing it to the military, like those and

failed to find out. True, they wanted to cut a mysterious sphere
but did not get the consent of its owners – the Betz family. Farmer

therefore demanded her back.
Scientists on the mysterious sphere of the Betz family

Enquirer “: the editors promised to pay 50 thousand dollars to someone

award prizes. Her члены провели множество опытов с ball, даже

climb on an inclined plane, breaking the law of gravity.
Fellow at the Geographical Society in Arlington Brand
Sullivan made the assumption that the mysterious sphere could be
an artifact left by a previous highly developed civilization. Her
colleague Jay Brennan thought it was rather a probe sent to
Earth aliens to collect information. Another member of the commission,
профессор TOалифорнийского университета Джеймс Хардер произвел
some calculations and announced that the chemical elements of which
small balls are made up, much heavier than any known ones us.
For example, the heaviest of the earth elements – uranium – according to
Periodic Table, has atomic number 92, artificially
humanity can create items with numbers of 118, whereas
inside the striking sphere contains an element with atomic number
Despite such sensational statements, the Betz never
received the promised prize …
The mysterious disappearance of the Betz family along with their fantastic
Mysterious ball, presumably of alien origin,
riveted the attention of scientists for several years. He was tried many times
open, but the researchers every time something stopped. TO
For example, James Harder in 1977 scared the scientific world with a statement about
that an attempt to drill or cut the “Betz field” can
cause a chained atomic reaction, especially since, apparently, the ball
still under the supervision of aliens.
The researchers seemed to agree with Harder, however
essentially only postponed the “anatomy” of the ball, looking for this
suitable facilities and landfill. Their plans were not destined
come true: at some point, the Betz, along with their fantastic
the sphere suddenly disappeared …
It was possible, of course, to assume that this was the work of the special services.
The United States, however, they themselves made considerable efforts in an attempt to find
at least traces of missing people – alas, in vain. Therefore, even ufologists and
conspiracy therapists agreed that the sphere, like the Bettsevs themselves, was taken
aliens. No one else has heard of this family, but
�The “live” ball remained an unsolved mystery.
