Remote Viewing Skinwalker Ranch


Between the years 2008 and 2012, a UFO and other paranormal phenomena scientific investigation was conducted by the Pentagon using $22 million granted by Congress. The funds were spearheaded by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada). Senators Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Ted Stevens (R-Alaska)  also helped leverage the funding.

In the now-famous 2017 New York Times article, Glowing Auras and Black Money: The Pentagon’s Mysterious UFO Program, the program was mistakenly identified as AATIP, a different UFO study group fronted by Luis Elizondo. In reality, the $22 million program was called AAWSAP, the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Application Program.

AAWSAP was led by Dr. James Lacatski and Dr. Colm Kelleher. These two accomplished scientists teamed up with noted Las Vegas TV journalist Goerge Knapp to publish a book about their findings in 2021. That book is Skinwalkers at the Pentagon.

I reviewed the book and published three other articles on my Medium site about the findings reported by the AAWSAP team. Now in this article, I will focus on yet another peculiar effort that was part of the study. That effort was hiring one of the world’s best military remote viewers to “psychically explore” what was happening at Skinwalker Ranch.

AAWSAPP hired none other than Joe McMoneagle, one of the first and, to this day, arguably the most accurate and accomplished remote viewers on the planet.

McMoneagle is famously known as “Psychic Spy 001.” That’s because he was the first person the United States Army recruited to take training as a remote viewer and the first to go into operation action on active military intelligence efforts.

When researchers at SRI (Stanford Research Institute) began randomly testing raw recruits for psychic ability, the battle-hardened Vietnam War combat vet Joe McMoneagle performed “off the charts” in terms of natural ESP talent.

When he took up the formal RV protocols as developed by SRI, his abilities achieved a remarkable level of accuracy.

McMoneagle would complete a 20-year military career retiring at the rank of Chief Warrant Officer. Most of his military service was in intelligence and a large portion of that was as a “remote viewing spy.”

In fact, McMoneagle was awarded The Legion of Merit for what included his work as a remote viewer. The Legion of Merit is among our nation’s highest military honors. It is given for “exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements.”

The many “hits” or accurate information McMoneagle achieved are legendary. Just one example came in 1979 when he accurately predicted the location and existence of a previously unknown Soviet-class nuclear submarine called the “Typhoon.”

McMoneagle drew detailed sketches and internal diagrams of the sub. CIA and other defense analysts deemed his information “not at all plausible” — until satellite photos confirmed that such a Russian sub existed a year later and in the location where McMoneagle said it would be.

McMoneagle scored countless other intelligence coups for U.S. intelligence agencies. He and others were key in finding out what was going on with the Americans taken hostage after Iranian revolutionaries stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979.

Remote viewing proved an invaluable method of “getting inside” the compounds where U.S. hostages were often being relocated and hidden.

Fast forward to 2008. The official government remote viewing programming had long been defunded and canceled (in 1995), but the art and science of remote viewing lived on and continued to develop in the private sector.

The scientists of AAWSAP were keen to take up this psychic spying tool to get answers about mysteries that conventional scientific methodologies are unprepared to handle. They opted to contract with the pinnacle of remote viewers, Joe McMoneagle, and assigned him a simple task. They asked him to “tell them what was going on at Skinwalker Ranch.”

Working under traditional blind target protocols, all AAWSAP provided to McMoneagle was a number, 26610, and nothing else. This number represented “Skinwalker Ranch.

He went to work and produced an accurate sketch of the layout of Skinwalker Ranch, including the headquarters building, the local environment, topography, animals present and the characteristics of the two men serving as ranch managers.

McMoneagle also described the two security guards who worked on the ranch. This was all dead-on accurate information — but then McMoneagle brought further information that is incredibly weird.

The remote viewer said there was a “fifth individual” present on the Ranch.

He describes this “person” as male, about 4-feet, 3-inches in height and hairless.

Now get this:

McMoneagle said this mysterious fifth individual was invisible. That is, he was present with the other four men on the ranch, but they could not see him.

Furthermore, this invisible bald 4-foot “man” was attempting to communicate with his human counterparts on the ranch with limited success. The human ranch staff sometimes perceived “messages” coming from “above or behind their heads.”

And that’s it!

After relating this astounding result in their book, Skinwalkers at the Pentagon, authors Lacatski, Kelleher and Knapp abruptly drop the subject and move on to their next topic.

Consider that everything else McMoneagle reported via his remote viewing was accurate, including detailed sketches of the surrounding environment along with accurate descriptions of the ranch personnel. It’s reasonable, then, or at least plausible to suggest that the information about an invisible bald-headed 4-foot “male” hanging around is also accurate.

That would come as no surprise to the Sherman family.

Skinwalker Ranch was formerly known as “the Sherman Ranch” for its owners, Terry and Gwen Sherman. They purchased the ranch in 1995 and commenced dealing with an array of paranormal phenomena. This included:

> Numerous sightings of UFOs of three specific types, including “a box-like craft with a white light,” a 40-foot-long object and “A huge ship the size of several football fields.”

> The appearance of ‘giant wolves’ that harassed cattle and were immune to being shot at close range with a high-caliber rifle

> Many cases of cattle mutilation and/or disappearances.

> Orange circular doorways that appear in the middle of the air out of which UFOs appear.

> Weird ghost, haunting and poltergeist activity including voices speaking an unknown language that seemed to be coming from a point about 25 feet above one’s head while they were outside on the ranch property.

> The Shermans’ three dogs vanished after they chased “balls of light” floating around the ranch.

> Inside the house, bizarre happenings occurred, such as the classic poltergeist activities of objects flying around the room, items disappearing and so forth.


But wait a minute!  Is there not an army of skeptics who have something to say about all of these claims?

Indeed, they do, and for the record, they sometimes make a compelling case.

For example, many point out that the Shermans purchased the ranch from its previous owners, Kenneth and Edith Myers. They lived and worked the property for 60 years — apparently without ever complaining/reporting about UFOs or any other sort of paranormal activity. (Or did they? I won’t go into that now).

I won’t go into it because this is where the Skinwalker subject gets complicated and is beyond the scope of my article today. Furthermore, I find many of the counterclaims by skeptics to be as ‘full of holes’ as they say are the claims of the paranormal researchers.

To pursue back-and-forth theories, claims and counterclaims is what I don’t want to get bogged down at this juncture — I will return to this issue in a future article.

However, I mention the counterclaims of the skeptics to be fair and as a matter of record and to let my readers know that there is more than one perspective on what goes on — or does not go on — at Skinwalker Ranch.

That said, I encourage readers to investigate skeptical takes regarding Skinwalker. As a suggestion, you can start here: The Unraveling of Skinwalker Ranch.


Despite the determined blowback of skeptics, the hits just keep on coming.

For example, the new owner of Skinwalker is Utah real estate mogul Brandon Fugal.

Like Bob Bigelow, Fugal purchased the property because he was intrigued by the many reports of UFOs and ancillary paranormal happenings there. Like Bigelow, he put together a team of scientists to study the property.

Like Pentagon scientist Colm Kelleher, Brandon Fugal received a baptism of fire of sorts. It happened during one of his first visits to the ranch — on that occasion, he was greeted with the sighting of an unmistakable UFO at close range.

Fugal said in a recent interview with Doug Jessop:

“I bought the ranch as a healthy skeptic. I had never seen a UFO, a ghost, an orb or anything of the sort.”

But on a visit to the ranch with his team, Fugal said:

“We saw a 40-foot-long silver disk hovering right above the mesa right in front of us. This wasn’t just a blinking light in the sky or something that was a little bit ambiguous. This was a solid object that appeared out of nowhere, and in fact, over a 20-second period, it performed maneuvers that I believe defy any propulsion physics that we’re acquainted with. We were in shock.” (Source)

Also, as I reported HERE, the Pentagon’s research program director, Dr. James T. Lacatski, observed a bizarre floating tubular-like object inside the ranch headquarters building on his first visit to the site.
