Dr. Raymond Keller


Dr. Raymond A. Keller, a.k.a. “Cosmic Ray,” is a world-recognized authority on the planet Venus and author of seven international awards-winning UFO books.

His two most recent books in the Venus Rising series are Flying Saucers and the Venus Legacy (2021) and Flying Saucers:  From Venus They Come (2022).  

Dr. Keller grew up in Bedford, Ohio and was the feature editor of the Bedford High School Fourth Estate school newspaper.  He also wrote a regular column on UFOs in his hometown newspaper, the Bedford Times-Register, and published a newsletter, the Flying Saucer Report from 1967 to 1972, when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and became the feature editor of the Miramar Naval Air Station Jet Journal in California.  

Mentoring with the prominent Cleveland UFO investigator Earl J. Neff (1902-1993), he gained significant attention in the UFO community over fifty-four years ago when an article appeared about him in the National Enquirer.  Dr. Keller also exchanged publications and information with all of the editors of prominent UFO periodicals during this time, most notably Gray Barker (1925-1984) and the staff of the Saucerian Press in Clarksburg, West Virginia, which included numerous contacts in New Jersey.

A now retired professor, Dr. Keller received his Ph.D. in History from West Virginia University (WVU) at Morgantown in 2011.  His dissertation dealt with the diaspora of African peoples in colonial Venezuela and particularly the role of a Basque captain of the French Guinea Company in bringing Imbangala mercenaries from Central Africa in 1722 to suppress uprisings of the indigenous Motilones in the area of the Sur del Lago Maracaibo, Venezuela. He also received his Master’s Degree from WVU in 2004 in Spanish, with an emphasis on magical realism in Latin American literature.
