The pretty lady, another blonde, is Asket. It’s one of a series of three photographs of the beautiful race of Timars aliens, from the twin DAL Universe. Along with her is Nera, and both were photographed by Swiss contactee Billy Meier aboard their spacehisp in June 1975.
They were sold by his catalog, numbers 109 to 111. They are still available on Meier’s catalog of photos, but with some captions. We’ll get to that just now.
In 1998, Luc Bürgin and Kal Korff revealed that those alleged aliens were actually American dancers from the Dean Martin Christmas Special of 1970. Meier had simply photographed a TV screen. Perhaps the most amazing thing is that Meier almost immediately recognized they were right.
"Unfortunately, during the talk with Ptaah, it now turned out that the two women shown on the photographs are not Asket and Nera from the DAL-Universe but their American doubles."
American doubles? Of course, Meier had an excuse for the forgeries he had been selling. You may read his whole explanation, it involves the Men in Black, attempts on his life, amnesia, and of course, aliens. Amazingly, despite all these elements, it makes for an extremely uninteresting story. In short, Meier claims he indeed took photos of Asket and Nera, but the authentic photos were switched by the MIBs for the ones with the American dancers; furthermore the aliens warned him of the switch but he then forgot about this warning. So he kept selling the forgeries until the photos were exposed in 1998, at which point Meier was able to quickly contact the aliens, be reminded of what he had forgotten, and publish those explanations.
Interestingly, Meier had already been giving excuses for the strangeness of the photos long before they were pinpointed as coming from the Dean Martin Show. One of the photos shows a reflection and horizontal lines. All three photos are flat and unfocused.
This can all be explained as the photos were taken of a TV screen, and amazingly, Meier had then also admitted before that this was true! Of course, he had an excuse. He took the photos from a screen… aboard the alien spaceship! Furthermore there was radiation an magnetic fields and something that also interfered with the camera. Believe it… or not.
Luis Ruiz Noguez, who is the source and reference for most of the information we are presenting in this Alien November, identified Asket and Nera as Michelle DellaFave and Susan Lund, respectively, members of the “Golddiggers” and “Dingaling Sisters” on the Dean Martin Variety Show from 1969-1973.
The Independent Investigations Groups (IIG) contacted DellaFave, who recognized herself and Susan Lund:
"I know that the picture of myself and Susie is from the Dean Martin show when the Golddiggers were guests on the show. I think it is about 1971 and I did wear my hair with little curls at the side of my face. It amazes me that he chose that picture. I guess it was when they did the reruns in Europe. I do not want anyone thinking I am causing any problems. I am simply stating the truth involved with these pictures. I just know a picture of myself when I see one, as anyone else would. I know it is from a segment when The Golddiggers would sit around Dean Martin and sing beautiful ballads called ‘Welcome To My World.’"
The mention to the little curls at the side of her face is funny because Meier originally stated that these curls were her earlobes – one of the few differences between them aliens and us humans.
DellaFave also sent an image which is from the exact same scene, from the outfits to the column in the background:
There we can see that all this time, two of the three photos had actually three beautiful girls – but one only showed her shoulder.
Meier is also known for photographing a dinosaur illustration and claiming it was from his time travels, as well as having one of his most famous flying saucers built with a garbage can lid.
