Billy Meier's UFO images are up for Auction at Sotheby's It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he managed to rake in some serious dough! Billy Meier is a Swiss national who in the 1970s claimed he had been in contact with aliens from the Pleiades star cluster - and had photographs to prove it. Published in a 1979 book by former United States Air Force pilot Wendelle C Stevens, they later appeared in publicity material for US science-fiction programme The X-Files. Now, they are up for auction at Sotheby's in the US, as part of a sale dedicated to space photography. Click on the link to view a selection of his photos.
