Frank Edwards: Project Redlight and the Military Industrial Complex

Frank Edwards Project Redlight and the Military Industrial Complex.

This remarkable speech by the late radio journalist and author Frank Edwards was delivered at the conclusion of a talk given at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium in Lakewood, Ohio on April 19th, 1964 hosted by the Cleveland UFOlogy Project. Frank Edwards was the only journalist at the time to go into any discussion of a possible flying saucer crash in Nevada in 1962. Since that time some suspicion has arisen regarding its possible connection to a reported project to test fly man-made flying saucers near what would later become known as the Groom Dry Lake Test Facility in Area 51. Even darker suspicions involve the Nevada Test Site and this project in a mileau of criminal activities including drug trafficking as a means of financing as well as the associations of individuals involved with this country’s major political assassinations. In the late 1970’s, Idaho journalist Bill Nelson would make some startling claims about Edwards in a publication given very limited distribution at that time. He describes attending a lecture given by Edwards at a high school a week before Edwards passed away in 1967 at which he presented some rather startling pieces of photographic evidence. One item was a photograph supposedly ‘classified’ by NASA taken during one of the Gemini space missions. His descriptive classification of the image’s supposed official ‘non-existence’ bears comparison to a similar phrase used by Sgt Clifford Stone to describe on camera a close-up photograph of a flying saucer in his possession that also has yet to be publicly disclosed. The others represented a series of images taken by a road worker depicting a triangular-shaped vehicle travelling directly over a road towards him as other workers dove to the side for cover. The last photo supposedly depicted it clearly from a vantage pint of 50 feet beneath. Needless to say there has been no mention in any publication of any of these pictures since that time. What can be stated with certainty is that the present recording represents a unique and powerful presentation by one of UFOlogy’s most important figures.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
