Race distinguishes various Star Visitors of decidedly different appearances. More research into exo-biology, (the science of Star Visitor life's physical structure and processes), will help us understand better how many races of intelligent species we are dealing with. So would the declassifying of the Government's already considerable covert research on Star Visitor ("exo-") biology, (such as is going on at NASA's Ames Research Center, Sunnyvale, CA, and at Los Alamos National Laboratories, New Mexico.

For convenience I shall use the term "race" to distinguish Star Visitors of significantly different anatomical features. The most common Star Visitor race encountered has a number of variants. These variations in size and details of appearance may represent origins on different planets, principally the Zeta Reticuli binary system's planets. This race, the Zeta, is popularly, and rather imprecisely, called the "Greys".

The Zetas are stereotyped, by uninformed or careless writers, as: short, upright, two-legged beings, three-and-a-half feet tall, with grayish-white skin, large, hairless, fetal-shaped heads, with huge, all-black, sloping, almond-shaped eyes without pupils or eyelids, whose eyes wrap around partially towards the temple-area sides of the head, a narrow jaw tapering to almost a V, small nostril holes but no nose, a small, thin, lip-less, horizontal slit for a mouth, thin torsos with no ribs and no genitals evident, long, spindly, but surprisingly strong arms reaching to the knees, similarly long, very thin legs, and hands with three long, non-tapering, joint-less fingers, which end in claws instead of fingernails, but no thumb.

To be sure, there is such a race of beings; or at least a race, of which this is one variant. However, there are also: five-foot tall Zetas , seven-foot tall Zetas, Zetas with mushroom-white skin, Zetas with brown skin, Zetas with black skin, Zetas whose large eyes have a thin nictating membrane which can extend across the eye, Zetas with midnight-blue eyes, Zetas with wispy fine small amounts of hair on their heads, Zetas with four fingers, and Zetas with three or four fingers and another finger positioned where the human thumb would be, and Zetas whose fingers end with suction-cup-like tips.

Councillor Meata of the Star Nations High Council says that the Tall Zetas, distinguished in size from the Short (3-1/2-foot-tall) Zetas, are very gifted with teaching skills. Indeed, noted author Whitley Streiber describes in his book The Secret School: Preparation For Contact, it is a female Tall Zeta who taught him as a child, along with selected other San Antonio, Texas small children, at night in a wooded grove as a kind of educational group close encounter.

There have also been Star Visitors reported who have a large process of folds along the back of their heads, a series of deep creases or crevices along the top of the head, sloping down forward towards the front, and with a strongly-pronounced brow-ridge above the eyes.

Are these twelve different races; or variants based on evolving in different climactic zones on one planet? Does this represent racial variation within inhabited planets in one star system? Or are these variations which occur within one cluster of star systems? Or does the Zeta genotype tend to appear in many different star systems, on some planets, along with other races, on other planets, within those same star systems? The truth is, we do not know. Or at least that information has not been released to the public. Thus, we are still at the stage of gathering information on the various different types of intelligent lifeforms visiting our planet.

Another source of variation even within what is apparently one race is clothing. Many experiencers report that their Zeta visitors wore no clothes. Others have seen Zetas wearing long robes and hoods over their heads. Others have seen crews where both versions of attire, as well as close-fitting jumpsuits, were in evidence. Yet Zetas are not the only ones wearing robes. Councillor Meata of the Star Nations' High Council says that the Zeta are renown for their working with energy of various forms. They also excel at gathering information, and the Star Nations rely on their reports in addition to those gathered from the Watchers, (Star Visitors human and Walk-In volunteers on Earth who compile information about what is going on with the planet and with human society.

Another race of Star Visitors is the 4-to-5 1/2-foot tall Being, with a somewhat large head (by comparison with the human head) but not as proportionally large as the Zetas, and who has somewhat large (but smaller than the Zetas) dark oval eyes, spindly frame and limbs, and a hand with three long, cartilaginous, bone-less fingers, which end with neither claw nor suction-cup, but rather "ordinary" fingertip shape, except that their fingers do not taper.

A more distinctive kind of Star Visitor is the "Praying Mantis type" race. These Beings have long, narrow faces, with long, narrow, large eyes, sharply slanted upward and outward in an almost narrow-V position, given an almost insect-like appearance. This comparison is heightened by the Praying-Mantis types' extremely thin, long torsos, long, extremely-thin arms which are usually crooked into a sharp bend at the mid-joint, with the hand and fingers/mitten sloping almost vertically downward from the "wrist", and legs also bent at an almost right-angle at the mid-joint, creating a crouched pose.

The overall effect is the characteristic "Praying Mantis" look. It should be noted that experiencers feel that this type is no insect, but rather an intelligent, gentle-spirited, but somewhat "hyper" and jerky-moving, human-like lifeform. There are both males and females. Star Nations Councillor Meata says that the Praying Mantis beings are gifted with the Spiritual Teachings, and visit Humans particularly when this kind of help is needed to be shared. These beings often are called Angels by people because they wear garments that are very shiny.

Another race is the so-called "Reptilians", or "Reptoids", although I note again that there is no implication in these descriptors of anything other than of intelligent, communicative persons. What distinguishes these "Reptilian" Star Visitors is their skin, which has small, fine scales, rather than smooth, their face, which has larger than human yellowish-green eyes with a "starburst" shaped pupil, the eyes often oval, and an almost snout-like blunt process in the area of the nose and mouth, giving this type an almost dragon-like humanoid appearance.

The Reptoids have very powerful emotional energy, sometimes so strong that, as one experiencer described it, "it can almost floor you, but they are so sensitive and kind. And they have hearts the size of Texas."

Another group of Star Visitors for convenience, I call the "Jawas", after their resemblance to the creatures in the film, Star Wars. This group is distinguished by their clothing. They wear hoods and robes, are generally short (three to four-and-a-half feet tall), and their faces are concealed by the shadows thrown by their hoods. Sometimes there is a much taller hooded and robed one on board the UFO, who often stands to the Experiencer's left as s/he lies on the Visitor medical examining table. This Tall One appears to direct the procedures, and often is the one who telepathically communicates with the Experiencer.

A few Experiencers have noted glowing eyes under the "Jawas'" hoods. Other Experiencers have reported that when they got a glimpse of the Being whose face was shadowed by the hood, it was a type of Zeta. Still others saw neither glowing eyes nor Zetas under the hoods, but rather never could distinguish the features in the shadows of the hoods. Councillor Meata of the Star Nations High Council says that the "Jawas" often serve as the "mechanics", and are noted for their expertise with technology. There are often mixed-race crews on the UFO's. In such cases there could be "Jawas" or "Praying Mantis" types or "Reptoids" or Zetas, joining in a coordinated effort in carrying out scientific or medical tasks.

A few Experiencers have noted robot-like figures, whose movements and "vibes" (or rather lack thereof) strongly suggest that these are robots sent remotely by the Star Visitors to observe, reconnoiter, and possibly retrieve objects. However, I have not encountered any reports of robots actually interfacing with humans to accomplish communication, or to remove the human to their craft for scientific examination. The robot-like figures appear to be relegated to the more impersonal tasks of information-gathering and stealthy surveillance, without the risk to the Star Visitors that they would otherwise run of possibly encountering hostile human responses.

My research has also come up with a goodly number of reports of "Humanoids", "Blondes", "Nordics", or "Pleiadeans", Star Visitors almost indistinguishable from humans. Indeed, Native American and other indigenous people's traditions point to their origin from the worlds of these human-looking Visitors in the Pleiades, Sirius, Orion and other star systems. If you were to place a pair of sunglasses on one of these "Nordic" Visitors, they would be indistinguishable from a Scandinavian-American citizen. Councillor Meata of the Star Nations High Council says that the Pleiadeans are especially gifted in medicine. When people are brought onto "ships" for physical body work, the healers like the work with them.

Former USAF Airman Charles Hall describes an extraterrestrial race he calls the Tall Whites. This race originates from a location near the star Arcturus. These Tall Whites are in adulthood around six feet in height and have generally humanoid features. They have blond hair, generally worn short, and the women tend to wear their hair in a feminine form of short cut. They are blue-eyed, and have larger-than-human eyes which wrap part-way around the side of their head. The Tall Whites otherwise look quite human, except that their skin is a chalky-white in color. They have hands with four fingers, the tips of which often have attached artificial, two-inch-long claw-like "nails".

The typical clothing of the Tall Whites is an aluminized, chalk-white jump suit of canvas-looking fabric. They also wear gloves of the same material, and an open, white, motorcycle-like helmet. Both the suit and the helmet emit a three-inch-out field of soft-white fluorescent light. The intensity of this emitted light can be varied from soft to too bright to look at without strain.

These Tall Whites have very high intelligence and an information-processing speed which Mr. Hall estimates at 3-1/2 times faster than bright humans. The Tall Whites's technology is equally advanced. One element of their technology is a transporter suit which they put on which provides personal antigravity levitation and above-ground movement, as well as force-field protection against attacks, e.g., would slow a bullet to where it would fall to the ground. Another element of their technology is their spacecraft. They operate smaller scout ships which can transport a limited number of individuals. And then they have deep-space vessels than can travel between star systems.

Their scout craft are white in color, ellipsoidal or egg-shaped, with a molded flat bottom. It has a row of large windows on each side, sort of like an airplane. Its size is comparable to that of a passenger train's diesel engine, and has two windows in front much like a train diesel engine. The range of these scout craft permit travel as far as the Moon or even Mars. But not deep space.

Their deep-space vessels are very large, sleek, black antigravity craft, 70 feet high, 300 feet wide, and 500 feet long. These vessels also have pilot windows, as well as have regularly-spaced running lights along their edges. Their range extends out many light years into space. Their top speed exceeds the speed of light by a considerable margin.

Airman Hall also reported a human-like race, the Saami, that migrated from Barnard's Star are resident in the Saami (Lapland) region above the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia. These Hall dubbed the "Norwegians". They are distinguished from regular humans by their having only 24 teeth, instead of the normal-human 32 teeth. Also, these Saami people can regrow a tooth to replace adult tooth which has been removed. Otherwise they are indistinguishable from humans. Some of these Saami migrated to the U.S. and live in northern-tier states such as Wisconsin.

Zulu history also tells a story of a white-skinned man and a woman coming down from the sky on a cloud and alighting upon a hilltop. These people were white and shiny with hair of gold and wearing shiny clothes. Their huts are thatched with shining grass. Their village was said to be lit by a mightier light than any on this world.

Former National Security Council consultant-scientist Dr. Michael Wolf has described people from the Altair Aquila star system who are virtually indistinguishable from humans. He worked with one, Anon Sa Ra, a Star Visitor consultant scientist. Dr. Wolf also described a race dubbed the "Semitics", of average height and a generally human-like appearance, except for their very large hooked nose. "This was the race which landed at Holloman Air Force Base, [New Mexico, in the Sixties], and conversed with some generals there."

Dr. Wolf called the human-like race he worked with the "Nordics", and these are different from Airman Hall's Tall Whites. Wolf said, "The Semitics and Nordics come from Altair 4 and 5 and from the Pleiades." Whereas, Hall identifies the home world of the Tall Whites as near the Arcturus star system I have also encountered reports where the Experiencer believed that the Star Visitor s/he was dealing with appeared to be a human. However, in some cases, this turned out to be an Star Visitor imposed mental visualization in the mind of the experiencer, the so-called "screen memory". Upon closer looking, the experiencer was able to see the actual nonhuman face of the Star Visitor behind the mentally-imposed "human" mask.

My favorite variation of this mental cloaking experience occurred to one experiencer who believed she was encountering a human "spaceman". I invited the Experiencer to look closely and carefully at the face of the "human spaceman". When she did so, she suddenly was startled. "Oh, my", she said," It's not a human after all. It's one of those Grays." Other details made me suspect we were still not done. I suggested she study closely the face of her "Gray" visitor. Startled, she could see that it was a "Reptoid" who had previously cloaked himself mentally as a Zeta.

Another Star Visitor racial type described are the short, chubby "Dwarf" Star Visitors, with round pudgy faces. They seem to be relegated to doing the menial chores during a contact.

Dr. Michael Wolf also shared the information that the cetaceans (dolphins and whales) were seeded here long ago, are highly intelligent, telepathic, and social, and have their origin as a star species.

Another race here which has its origin in the stars is the group variously called the Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch, and the "Abominable Snowman". Jack "Kewaunee" Lapsertios, M.S., author of "The Psychic Sasquatch", told me that these beings are very hairy and muscular yet intelligent humanoids, telepathic, social, but very avoidant of humans, unless they gradually learn there is one they can trust not to harm them.

Yet another race is what could be dubbed the Bird People. This group's most pronounced feature is a broad, downward-sloping proboscis, somewhat like an oversize broad bird beak or flexible dolphin beak, with the mouth underneath the beak. These Visitors have graceful ovoid heads, and long thin necks. They have thin, horizontal, slit-like eyes with dark pupils. They are telepathic, kind hearted, and powerful healers and teachers.

Then there are the light beings, the energy beings, and the pure, disembodied consciousness beings. The light and energy beings do not have a solid, three-dimensional body, but rather there presence is marked by the presence of a structured (often round) or an ill-defined mass of light or other energy. Some of these have been dubbed Orbs. These Orbs are conscious, communicative, interactive and have personality.

In the case of the pure consciousness beings, the only signal of their presence is the onset of telepathic contact, and, occasionally, their influence on something in the local environment.

Undoubtedly, many more races could be described. We as humans are challenged by intelligent life that looks so different from us, a challenge which can be disturbing. But it can also remind us that the Source of All is myriad in its expression of lifeforms, including intelligent lifeforms, across the vast Universe. Only the most anthropocentric would be offended by the Supreme Source's creation of intelligence in other anatomical packages. And, indeed, Star Visitor messages tell us that we are that special variant mix of intelligent life: part-Earth primate, part-Star Visitor intelligent lifeform. Thus, when any of us has an encounter with a Star Visitor, we truly are meeting our "distant cousins".
