PHOENIX — The cockpit audio from American Airlines flight 2292 from New Mexico to Phoenix sounded like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. “Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us,” a pilot can be heard saying. “I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast right over the top of us.”
The radio transmission from Flight 2292 was published on an aviation blog called Deep Black Horizon about the Feb. 21 passenger flight bound for Arizona. American Airlines put out a statement, saying, “Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21.” And the FBI said agents are aware of the incident.
“While our policy is to neither confirm nor deny investigations, the FBI works continuously with our federal, state, local, and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public. Anyone who is aware of suspicious or criminal activity should contact their local law enforcement agency or the FBI.” Astronomer Dr. Larry Wasserman from Lowell Observatory and Phoenix Lights expert Dr. Lynne D. Kitei both found the recording fascinating.
Two doctors with two different backgrounds, but both admittedly found the audio fascinating. “The pilot obviously saw something, he saw a UFO,” Wasserman said. “Pilots have been reporting strange anomalies that can’t be explained from their vantage point,” Kitei said. “The excitement in their voices, seeing something so unusual but we have to remember that it’s in New Mexico and white sands missile range is nearby.”
Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque said, “We have no knowledge of any object.” FAA air traffic controllers said they did not see any object in the area on their radarscopes. I think we wait and see but I would not jump on the alien hypothesis as the first choice,” Wasserman said. NOTE: The above image is CGI
HI Ken : I was watching the live Torbay NCI webcam, wishing I could be there in person looking out for any strange UFO activity. I had been watching the webcam for about 10 minutes when to my surprise I spotted two sphere shaped objects that flew down from the sky heading towards the sea. I didn’t hesitate I quickly took a screen capture, only just managing to capture the sphere’s just before they went into the water and disappeared from view. In the captured image you can see the two sphere’s over by Thatcher Rock. The first sphere seems to be matching the colour of the water, while the second sphere is matching the colour of the sky behind it, while reflecting the sun. It is common knowledge in the intelligent community that these objects have adaptive camouflage and are able to match the colour of the surrounding area making them much harder to see.
It’s very fortunate that they were captured by this webcam. I really wanted to go to Torbay and visit Daddyhole Plain in order to carry out a thorough investigation of the whole area but unfortunately I was unable to due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, which were still in place. It was just sheer luck that I had been watching the webcam right at that moment, allowing me to capture the sphere’s in a screen grab just before they had entered the water and disappeared from view. The image was captured at 1:37 pm on the 25th of February 2021 on the Live Torbay NCI webcam at England. All the best John. Check out the webcam at https://torbaynci.org/index.php/torbaynci-web-cam/
June 29, 1964 – Businessman Beauford E. Parham was driving home in the late evening, and was near Lavonia in northeast Georgia, when he spotted a very bright light in the sky coming directly toward his car.
The next instant it was directly in front of his headlights – a top-shaped object, spinning and emitting a hissing sound “like a million snakes.”It was amber-colored, about 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide, with a mast-like protrusion on top and small portholes around the bottom through which “flames” were visible.
The UFO disappeared, then quickly reappeared and stayed directly in front of the car, just in front of the lights (estimated 5 feet), for at least a mile while the car was traveling at 65 mph.
The top of the UFO was tilted toward Parham, who said he followed it in a “near trance-like state.” Next the UFO went up over the car leaving a strong odor like embalming fluid and a gaseous vapor. Then the UFO appeared for the third time, again heading directly toward the car; the motor began to miss and Parham stopped.
The UFO spun “like crazy” and then took off, disappearing in a “split second.” Parham began to feel a burning sensation on his arms, so he drove to an air base and reported the incident to FAA officials. They reportedly detected some radioactivity on the car (no formal report made). Parham’s arms continued to burn even after he washed them. An oily substance on the car persisted after many washings, the car hood was warped with bubbled up paint, and the radiator and hoses deteriorated after the incident. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
SEPTEMBER 2, 1964……..VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE CALIFORNIA
One of these launches would inspire an official government cover-up and provoke an investigation and search for the filmed record which goes on to this day. Here is what happened.
To the best of my recollection and based on sketchy records – the date of the event was most probably either September 2nd, 3rd, or 15th, 1964. The launch was of an Atlas missile.
It was an Atlas-F as I recall strongly, but it may possibly have been an Atlas.D. The flight was in support of the Nike-Zeus objectives. Nike Zeus was one of the United States’ projects to develop an anti-missile missile.
This particular mission was part of a test of an enemy radar-defeating system. The whole program in hindsight seems very primitive, possibly futile and even a bit silly. Nearly a quarter of a century ago in 1964 it was deadly serious business.
At the Big Sur tracking site we were ready to go as the countdown from Vandenberg progressed loud and clear on our radio. At the call of “ignition…. liftoff” all cameras rolled and scanned to the southeast for something to photograph.
“There it is!”, I shouted out as the Atlas leaped through the snow-white coastal fog blanket and both tracking mounts homed-in on the majestic “bird” in flight. The big Atlas could not have been more clean, clear and majestic We were “Go” for the operation.
The magnification of the B.U. was truly impressive. The exhaust nozzles and lower third of the Atlas missile literally filled the frame at this distance of over 100 nautical miles. With one tracking mount operator on azimuth and one on elevation working completely manually, it was not easy to keep the image centered in the early stages of flight.
As the nosecone package approached T + 400 seconds, sufficient angle of view had been established that we were literally locked down with the whole inflight package centered in the frame. No one on the site was watching the screen by this point.
Our mission to provide the engineers with a side look at three stages of powered flight had been accomplished and we were a very happy bunch, congratulating each other and letting the film run out in the 35mm motion picture camera focused on the Kinescope.
I took the cans of exposed film and headed down the coast to Vandenberg and our laboratory. Processing of the film would occur that night and the results would be ready for viewing the next day.
MEN IN GREY:
I was back at my desk enjoying the feeling of accomplishment from the Big Stir expedition when I was called by Major Mansmann, who asked me to come right away to his office at the Headquarters building. When I arrived, I found a movie projector set up in the office and a group of people waiting.
Among these I recall two men in plain grey suits who spoke little and watched me intently as the lights were dimmed and the film played on a bright screen. (Mansmann has since stated that there were actually three men present.)
It was a surprise and a delight for me to be seeing the kinescope recording from Big Sur after all the months of planning and weeks of work. I was quite amazed and very pleased with the quality, especially at the distance involved as we could make out quite plainly the separated nosecone, the radar experiment and the dummy warhead all sailing along beautifully about 60 miles straight up from planet Earth and some 300 to 500 nautical miles down range.
As we neared the end of the camera run, Mansmann said, “Watch carefully now, Lieutenant ant Jacobs.”
At that point the most remarkable vision of my life came on the screen. Another object flew into the frame from left to right. It approached the warhead package and maneuvered around it. That is, this … “thing”…flew a relative polar orbit around our warhead package which was itself heading toward the South Pacific at some 18 thousand miles an hour!
As the new object circumnavigated our hardware, it emitted four distinct bright flashes of light at approximately the 4 cardinal compass points of its orbit. These flashes were so intense that each “strike” caused the I.O. tube to “boom” or form a halo around the spot.
Following this remarkable aerial display the object departed the frame in the same direction direction from which it had come. The shape of the object was that of a classic “flying saucer.” In the middle of the top half of the object was a dome. From that dome, or just beneath it, seemed to issue a beam of light or which caused the flashes described.
Subsequently the warhead malfunctioned and tumbled out of suborbit hundreds of miles short of its target. This … unidentified flying … “thing” had apparently “shot down” an American dummy atomic warhead!
The lights came on and Major Mansmann said, “Lieutenant Jacobs, were you or any of your people fooling around up there at Big Sur?
“No sir,” I answered honestly. I was shaking with excitement.
“Then tell me … what the Hell was that?”
I looked Major Mansmann straight in the eye. “It looks to me like we got a UFO,” I said.
There was a stifling silence among the men in grey, civilian suits who continued to stare at me. Major Mansmann gave them what I can only describe as a “let me handle this” look.
“Well,” he smiled cordially, “let’s just say it never happened. You are to say nothing about this footage to anyone. As far as you and I are concerned, this never took place, you understand?”
I looked at the men in the grey suits. They were not smiling. I felt hot and anxious. I was sweating badly. I think I just sat for a minute looking blankly at Major Mansmann. I had just seen the most fantastic event of my life.
It etched a path in my memory as deep as the one put there almost a year earlier when President John F. Kennedy had been shot to death in Dallas. I wanted more than anything to see it again, to study it under a magnifier, to analyze the pictures frame by frame.
Major Mansmann did smile, nicely. “I don’t need to remind you of the seriousness of a security breach, do I Lieutenant?”, he asked.
“No, sir,” I replied.
“Good,” he said, motioning for me to stand.
He walked me to the door, speaking confidentially. “What you just saw did not take place,” he repeated. “It never happened.”
I looked at him once more. Something flickered way back deep in his eyes as he again looked at the men in grey then back to me.
“But … if at some time in the future,” Florenz Mansmann said finally, “you are pressed by someone about this and you can’t get out of answering, just tell them … tell them it was flashes from laser tracking, O.K.?”
And with that, I was ushered out the door and into over a decade of silence on the subject. Never mind that in 1964 we did not have laser tracking, nor did we or any other power on Earth have spacecraft capable of flying circles around a suborbital capsule. I tried to sublimate the whole incident out of loyally and respect for Florenz Mansmann whom I liked a great deal. While I did not talk about the event with anyone.
I did begin a period of intense research into the UFO phenomena.
My research interest in the field continues to the present. Of particular fascination is the relationship of the press to the UFO. This great Liberal bastion of free enquiry, this body of muckrakers which prides itself so highly on prodding and upsetting political figures, has played very prettily into the hands of those same government minions who wish to obfuscate the whole field of discovery, discussion and debate about the most perplexing and possibly most important scientific conundrum in the history of our species.
While chasing after Pulitzer Prizes for such relatively petty mischief as political dirty tricks at Watergate, or poor old Gary Hart and his happy harlots or the hapless Dan Quayle and his colorless, but merely mediocre background, The Press has persistently missed one of the really imperative stories of our time.
I told my small portion of it first, tentatively, on a late night talk show which I hosted in Eureka, California in 1973 on station KFMl-FM. The response I got to my revelation was almost as astonishing as had been the event itself.
My program director, Richard Van Pelt, came forth to tell his own tale of a CE3K which happened to him while he was an Air Force Security NCO in Iceland 20 years earlier.
A university physics professor at California State University, Humboldt who had worked on the H-bomb project came forth to tell about his firm belief in the extraterrestrial nature of UFOs. Since then I have met a number of other people whom I respect, whom I know not to be “fringies” or cranks or crackpots, but who share common experiences with UFO sightings and encounters.
And, finally, in 1982, 1 decided that my story needed to be aired to a broader audience. Eighteen years had gone by. I could not get it out of my mind after all that time.
Then, first in the trade journals, later in the popular press, there were hints of a new weapon system in the offing. It was some kind of satellite-smasher we were told.
Soon we would hear President Reagan himself disrobe the rumors and give us Star Wars (SDI). There were the rumors of aircraft being built which were invisible to radar (some said to the human eye, as well!) “Stealth,” they were called.
It is significant to recall that until very recently, the Air Force denied that they existed, too!
There were persistent stories of something called Project Snowbird where American pilots were being shown how to operate captured (or donated) alien space craft Something about the Big Sur film seemed to be part of the overall pattern.
I held back writing my story because of the Security angle until the truth occurred to me.
There was no “security breach” in this story. The damn thing had never been “Classified SECRET’ or anything else. I had been told simply that it “NEVER HAPPENED”! Therefore, I was free to tell the story to whomever I pleased since it was about a non event officially.
I wrote my article. I shopped it around. In the end The National Enquirer published it. And as now retired Major Florenz J. Mansmann put it, “Jacobs opened Pandora’s Box.”
I was contacted by a variety of investigators, buffs, cranks, proponents and detractors alike. James Oberg, a frequent “mouthpiece” for certain NASA projects and self-styled UFO Debunker wrote to disparage my story and to ask provocatively, “Since you obviously feel free to discuss top secret UFO data, what would you be willing to say about other top secret aspects of the Atlas warhead which you alluded to briefly …?”
I told Mr. Oberg where to put his misplaced cynicism.
Mansmann, now a Ph.D. research consultant at Stanford and a farmer near Fresno, California was besieged with requests for information, and for his version of what happened. My respect and admiration for him was vindicated as he categorically verified my account.
CONCLUSIONS: Academicians first gather data, then postulate conclusions based on what they find. From what I have gathered first hand, (primary evidence), pieced together from Mansmann, from a fine researcher named Lee M. Graham), from contemplation, discussion and debate of the material, as well as from the Air Force position on this and other related matters, I have come to the following conclusions:
(1) What we photographed that September day in 1964 was a solid, three-dimensional, intelligently controlled flying device.
(2) It emitted a beam of energy, possibly a plasma beam, at our dummy warhead and caused a malfunction.
(3) This “craft” was not anything of which our science and technology in 1964 was capable. The most probable explanation of the device, therefore, is that it was of extraterrestrial origin.
(4) The flashing strikes of light we recorded on film were not from laser tracking devices. Such devices did not exist then aside from small scale, laboratory models.
(5) Most probably the B.U. Tele scope was brought out to California specifically to photograph this event which had been prearranged. That is, we had been setup to record an event which someone in our Government knew was going to happen in advance.
(6) What we photographed that day was the first terrestrial demonstration of what has come to be called S.D.I. or “Star Wars.” The demonstration was put on for our benefit for some reason by extraterrestrials.
It is this aspect of the event, not merely the recording of another “flying Saucer” which caused such consternation both on the part of Major Mansmann when he told me “it never happened” and on behalf of the government in its two and one half decade cover-up of the event and the record we made of it.
It is this defense-oriented aspect of the case which has caused investigators to run into stone walls in trying to track down my story. The Air Force has alternately denied that I was ever an officer, that I was ever stationed at Vandenberg, that I was OIC of Photo-optical Instrumentation in the 1369th Photographic Squadron, that there was a tracking site at or near Big Sur, California, that an Atlas-F, or for that matter, any other missile was launched on or about the date or dates I reported.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. on the evening of December 21, as he drove east along Route 250 between Staunton and Waynesboro, Virginia, Horace Burns, a gunsmith in Harrisonburg, saw an immense cone-shaped object cross low over the highway ahead of him.
It was moving in a north to south direction at a slow speed estimated to be about 15 mph. The point of the cone was tipped slightly forward in the object’s line of flight.
It crossed the highway approximately 200 feet ahead of Burns and settled in a meadow to the right of the road, landing gently, “like a bubble.” At the moment the object crossed the highway, Burns’ car motor failed. The object settled in the field as he brought the car to a stop on the shoulder of the highway.
Burns got out of the car to get a better look. “It was 125 feet in diameter, at least, and 80 to 90 feet high,” he later reported. Its circular, sloping sides rose toward the top in six large, concentric convolutions that decreased in diameter and were surmounted by a dome.
The object was so large, Burns said, that when it crossed the road ahead of him it had more than filled the entire width of his windshield. In the gathering darkness, Burns could not make out with certainty the exact nature of the object’s surface material but it gave the appearance of a dull, metallic finish.
He saw no features such as windows, ports, doors, or seams on the object; however, extending around its base at a height of about six feet was a band of bluish-white light, sharply-edged and about 12 to 18 inches wide. The light was steady and did not flicker or dim. No landing gear was evident and the object seemed to rest lightly on the ground on a somewhat convexly curved undersurface.
Burns watched the object for from 60 to 90 seconds at a distance no greater than 150 yards when it suddenly rose straight up to a height of several hundred feet and, emitting a soft “whoosh” like rushing air, took off in a northeasterly direction at an exceedingly high rate of speed, again with its top tilted slightly forward in the line of motion. It disappeared from view in a matter of seconds.
Following its disappearance, Burns drove home and told his wife about his sighting, swearing he wouldn’t tell another soul because “they’d think I’m crazy.”
However, a few days later, a local radio program announced the formation of a UFO investigations group at Eastern Mennonite College, under the direction of Dr. Ernest G. Gehman, a professor of German at the college. At his wife’s urging, Burns got in touch with Gehman by way of the radio station to report his observation.
On December 31, Dr. Gehman traveled alone to the landing site and made a geiger counter test of the area. An extremely high reading was obtained, and was verified by the arrival of two DuPont research engineers who, having heard about the landing, had driven to the site the same day Dr. Gehman made his investigation. In fact, Dr. Gehman had been able to locate the landing spot (later verified by Burns) by the readings on his Geiger counter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In the mid-1960s a sleepy Wiltshire town became the unlikely epicenter of a UFO phenomenon. Warminster, in West Wiltshire, became known globally for what was enigmatically called “The Thing”. The Thing took many forms by those who claimed to have observed it between 1965 and 1977. The first sign of The Thing was during the Christmas of 1964, when residents heard a loud, unidentifiable whine. The strange sightings were reported in the Warminster Journal. Local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood was instrumental in making the phenomenon national news and in one year more than 1000 sightings of unidentified flying objects were recorded.
They continued to be seen on a regular basis between 1965 and 1977, and in many ways formed a key chapter of the 1960s . Although there have been few sightings in recent years, Warminster is still seen by many as synonymous with UFOs. With the army based on nearby Salisbury Plain, Warminster is well known as a military town. This gave rise to the theory that visitors from outer space could very well have been mistaken military aircraft. But believers shrugged off this theory believing that the military were one of the reasons Warminster had been chosen for visitations. Whatever the reason for the coming of The Thing, it has certainly put Warminster on the map.
In the early 1960’s we lived in Kansas. We were small children then had a house on the North End of Great Bend, on the North end of Morton Street.
One night in 1964 or 65, I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a ‘white cube’ that glowed like a light bulb. It had a red light glowing on the inside of it. There are or were quite a few radio towers in the area and one huge TV 2 tower farther to the North.
The ‘cube shaped thing’ flew around that radio tower like a moth flies around a light bulb, only slower than a moth and it never hit the tower. Also, the red light was fading on an off like the tower light. Now, I believe the object was trying to communicate with the tower. When I first saw the object I was transfixed like a deer in headlights!
I ran to get my dad but like most dads, he said not to bother him, so I ran back to the kitchen yelling for my two brothers to come. When I got back to the window it was still flying near the tower.
Just before my brothers got to the window it traveled across the field towards me. It started hovering around 75 feet above the ground and was approximately 200 yards away. That’s when my two brothers joined me at the window and started asking, “What is that, what is that?”
It spun so fast that it morphed into a spinning ball and appeared as a white streak as it shot almost straight up angling towards the North West and was gone. We were very excited at witnessing how it zoomed away. “That was fast, really fast!”, reverberated in the room.
At the North end of the street was a wheat field, then to the North edge of that about one mile is the Dry Walnut Creek and on the North edge of that was the radio tower. The radio tower was around one and a quarter mile from the kitchen window where I first saw it. The 15 houses on our street, including ours, lined up along the wheat field East and West.
Years ago a man asked me about the sighting. He showed me a lot of pictures of UFO’s and asked if the object looked like any of them? When I said ‘No”, he suddenly wore a strange expression on his face. I have no idea who he was. All I know is that he was someone my dad knew. I would like to ask him where he got the pictures and if this sighting was some sort of simulation.
The object was very clear, a perfect shaped cube – not at all blurry. As it flew around the tower it really tumbled and then sped across the field at 100 to 150 mph, rolled a little, but as it hovered it stayed on a perfectly flat plane and slowly turned.
It glistened: not bright like a 100 watt light bulb but still glowing. The light was uniform throughout the object. The red light inside the craft disappeared after a few seconds, then it spun into a ball and left.
As I mentioned the object was cube-shaped and reminds me now of the Star Trek Borg ships. I would like to know where the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, got the idea for that cube ship, although, the only similarity between my sighting and the Borg cube was its shape. I believe we saw the object because we are not alone on this planet. Whatever we saw flying around that radio tower still intrigues me today!
The way the craft moved makes me believe it was under intelligent control. It maneuvered deliberately from field to field, sped up and slowed down and changed height. It was the size of a small box truck: 20 feet wide by 20 feet long. Today, I believe that the craft was just curious as if it had just discovered us by perhaps following the TV signal with the sub carrier wave to its source. This is a true story and I wanted to share it. Sighting was reported by Wade Meyer. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
William Blackburn, a resident of Waynesboro, Virginia, was working at the Augusta County Archery Club off Route 250, near Brand’s Flats, when at approximately 5:40 PM, on January 19, 1965, he saw two objects in the sky.
One of these UFOs, the smaller of the two, descended to the ground and landed approximately 18 yards from the witness. From it emerged three beings of extraordinary appearance, each about three feet high.
They were dressed in clothes of the same shiny, peculiar color as the object. One had an extremely long finger on one Band. The beings’ eyes were particularly penetrating: according to the witness, “they seemed to look through you.”
As the creatures approached the witness, to within 12 yards, he froze in fright, a double-edged axe in his hand. After uttering some unintelligible sounds, the beings turned and reentered the object through a door that appeared to “mold itself into the ship.”
The object then ascended and disappeared.
Following the appearance of Blackburn’s account in the local press, the witness told of being visited by members of a government agency whom he would not identify, although he said he was told not to say anything further about his sighting.
In an investigation conducted by Richard Hall and several NICAP staff members, strong evidence was found to support the witness’ report of being silenced.
In spite of this, the investigators were able to secure some additional details on the sighting. The area of the reported sighting is close to Fishersville, Va., the site of another landing (but with no reported occupants) which had occurred less than a month before. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In the fall of 1973, October, I was 12 years old, I was watching TV (the six million dollar man) it was a new TV show and the only thing my stepfather watched (until “The A-Team” came out).
My mother asked me to take out the paper trash to burn; we lived on a dead end street beside a very large swamp area and separated our paper to burn out back. We had a large mowed field next to our house before the swampy area started, we always burned our paper trash at the edge of it before where the ground got too wet.
I reluctantly pulled myself away from the TV and ran out the back door grabbing the large paper grocery bag full of paper trash and a pack of matches. Planning to get this over with fast. I ran to the edge of the field, dropped the bag and flicked a few lit matches into it, waiting only a half second to make sure one would light the papers inside and ran back to the house eager to return to the new TV show.
As I ran in my mother was still standing on the back porch holding open the screen door with her back, once I was in the kitchen but not yet to the living-room, and my TV show, my mother said “Greg, what IS that?”
I walked to where she was and she stood gazing off into the darkening night sky, it was just after sunset, maybe 6 or 7 p.m. I looked to where she was looking and saw some flashing light in the distance and said “oh thats just a…” (ready to dismiss whatever and go back to TV).
That’s as far as I got, I realized it was not a plane… it was too low, and wobbling, the wrong colors and too slow…
It was about a half mile away, at a spot where the nickle plate railroad tracks intersected with interstate 65. There was a viaduct there where the highway went over the railroad tracks. From where we stood I could see the headlights from the traffic and this object just above all the cars and trucks.
The viaduct was made on 2 hills maybe 80 feet tall with a bridge over them so the train could pass underneath I-65 on its way thru the swamp. I-65 is pretty much north-south and the nickle-plate railroad that went under it was pretty much east-west. The object looked about the same distance above the traffic as the viaduct is tall, making its altitude about 160 feet.
I stared a moment, thinking, before stepping down off the porch onto the driveway to escape the light from the kitchen and see it better, and also to move toward it a bit… let my eyes adjust to the dark. It was not a plane, too slow, too low, a helicopter? no sound, not a blimp, too fast…
I realized rather quickly it did not fit any category of flying things I knew of. I stared at it intently, it had green, red and blue lights rotating around it, the 3 lights forming a triangle, and some whitish light… and they were pulsing, not flashing, and it seemed to wobble forward kind of due to the elliptical rotation of the triangle of lights.
From a distance it looked like 2 steps forward one step back, but now it was closer and I could see that’s how it moved, the center was sliding forward into the space between the center sphere and the outer rotating ring with the 3 lights mounted on it, as if you were walking while hula-hooping, and each time the hula-hoop was touching your back you would take a step forward, but it was a very smooth motion, and silent.
It was headed our way, and as it got closer I felt an overwhelming sense of awe and wonder and inside I knew this was unidentified, and flying… and an object! My heart was beating but I felt calm; hoping it was true, but thinking any minute it would reveal itself to be a helicopter or something else mundane.
It didn’t. It came directly at me and then this huge craft silently floated directly above me and my yard and my house and was now so low I felt sure it intended on landing in the field next to our house (it wouldn’t have fit).
Looking straight up at its underside I could see now the center sphere had a larger unattached, or loosly attached, ring around it and the 3 colored lights were mounted on that rotating ring. I think I could see the night sky in the space between the sphere and the ring as it went around.
I was thinking love and peace and I want to meet you, and let me see inside your ship… and it seemed to be in agreement as it approached, I squinted to look for windows in the center sphere. I think I saw some ports or something but they were small and blended with the surface, with all the glare and lights and it being night I could not be sure, but I did feel watched from there.
More than that I felt “telepathed at” or heard… or understood, or “linked to” whoever was there, inside. I felt in a dreamy state.
It was almost as big as a football field, if anyone was really in it they were in the center part, it was about 80 feet up. It took up 30% of the visible sky. My neck was bent back as far as it would go to look up at it. I felt the same feeling you get when you daydream. It felt good, euphoric.
It was going to land, I just knew it. It hovered there for 5 minutes or so, I felt euphoria and I had to concentrate hard to keep thinking clearly and study it, to remember everything, and not fall under its spell. It took effort to keep ‘snapping myself out of it’.
The bottom seemed to be mirroring the night sky above it, like it tried to be invisible. I realized it was so close I could hit it with a rock!… or my BB gun, or the 22 rifle behind our back door and make it crash here! and call channel 7 eyewitness news and be famous!
The very next rotation of that glorious ring rotated to the east, away from me… it was leaving! they heard my thoughts! I was already regretting letting my thoughts go from ‘peace, land, come here, I want to meet you’ to ‘get proof and be on TV.’
I ran in the house and the gun was not behind the door where it ALWAYS is. I ran to the living room and yelled for my stepfather to come look, but he wasn’t interested. I ran past my mom and back outside. My mom was still frozen at the back door looking up with her mouth hanging open. I knew even then the euphoria had gotten to her, she was mesmerized. Back outside it was really leaving, it slowly did its rotate slide, rotate slide to the east, away from me and my chance to meet them, I blew it.
It slowly hula-hooped due east and back over I-65 again, about mile north of where it first crossed west over the interstate, and disappeared into the distance. I felt sad as I watched it another 15 minutes floating away.
I didn’t know what to do, I called state police, they said nobody has reported anything, that left me with not much to say. I tried calling a small local airport but nobody answered. It was so low going over I-65 and all the neighborhoods, Willow Street, Old Ridge Road. Surely someone else saw it, all West Hobart should have seen that thing, surely anyone outdoors between Ridgeview Elementary School and I-65.
For the next week I watched the news and read the Post Tribune looking for anything, but nothing. I was never the same after that, maybe there really is a God, I didn’t know everything or have a logical explanation for everything anymore.
After all these years I have come to some conclusions. It was held aloft the same way a magnet is when held over another magnet with matching poles facing each other, I could “feel it”… it was not anti-gravity, it was suspended inside the earth’s magnetic field somehow, it was manipulating the magnetic fields around itself, silent, smooth, efficient.
But it had lights even though it seemed to try to broadcast the night sky on its’ underside. Why cloak itself, but have bright pulsing lights… why would aliens need or care to follow FAA regulations or any earth laws… why have lights at all if you want to sneak?
Was it trying to look like our air traffic? Why come out of your way to look at me and hang out here and let me see you if you are trying to cloak yourself? Did it see the flashes from me throwing matches in the garbage?, it surely went out of its way to come over here and look at me.
It did not want some normal plane or something to crash into it, that’s why the lights, that’s the only thing that makes sense, or maybe it was just taken for granted when building it that of course anything flying, at night especially, needs lights, right? By humans this logic holds.
I was amazed at the technology of that thing, hundreds of years ahead of mankind if not more!, but I think the lights were man-made, and the more I think about it the more I think it was a UFO for sure, but not from distant space, it was too “mechanical.” I doubt that thing could make it from one star system to another no matter how amazing it was compared to a jet or helicopter.
Maybe the original idea or some tech inside it was from outer space, but we were the ones who had it now, reverse engineered. We were the ones “hundreds of years ahead of man kind.” Now after seeing the tic tacs with the Pacific fleet, in comparison my old 1973 UFO seems like an old fashioned clunky version, almost a laughable funny flying machine, like how we now look at old black and white movies of early attempts at flight.
Maybe the telepathy thing was just my emotional state. Maybe.
I have included a graphic I made from memory and also a map detailing the exact path the object traveled. In the map I highlighted a county southeast of my location because after looking at many sites and forums for “my” UFO in case someone else saw it, I came across a rash of reports from Delaware County, Indiana at about that same time frame. And the thing I saw came from that exact direction. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
I have been researching the hi-definition image of Mars and have discovered many weird things. Tons of fossils and skeletons all over the landscape. The planet Mars has been explored remotely by spacecraft. Roughly sixty percent of all spacecraft destined for Mars failed before completing their missions and some failed before their observations could begin. It’s difficult to hear or read about Curiosity without mentioning its price tag. While $2.5 billion is not a small chunk of change, it’s important to consider that NASA spread the costs of the Curiosity mission over a period of time while it explores Mars. As of February 2021, Curiosity is still active, while Spirit, Opportunity, and Sojourner completed their missions before losing contact. these photos are from the Curiosity Rover.
Nasa seems to have hundreds of web sites and finding the right web site with hi-definition images is the mission. I have found most of these photos on Gigapan. Of course the images are very large and I have to scan the photos for a few hours to find these strange things.
Hi Ken : I had braved it outside to sky watch even though It was bitterly cold and after about 20 minutes I was getting ready to go back inside the house to warm up, when I noticed an object in the sky that was off to the west. At first it was moving around erratically before it started to move in a intelligently controlled manner. I looked at it through my binoculars and I could see that the object was some type of structured craft which had two sphere’s on the top of it. There was a strange haze around the craft as it moved through the air which I thought was probably due to the cold air around it. I put down my binoculars and quickly took a photograph with my Sony HX-300 camera and then began to zoom in on the craft for a close up, but before I could the structured craft flew off at incredible speed which caused me to lose sight of it. I was left feeling very confused as to what I had just witnessed. What could this structured craft have been? I would really like to know what these strange aerial objects are and why they are so prevalent in the sky around this area. The photograph was taken at 4:01 PM on the 16th of February 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
Location of Sighting: Moultrie, Georgia Date of Sighting: February 9, 2021 Time of Sighting: 10:16 AM EST
I was at our local Walmart. I always take pictures of the sky. I noticed a circular opening in the clouds and went to take a picture of it. I took 3 pictures back to back. The first picture captured this object. I did not see it with my eyes and I didn’t realize I caught it until I went to review the photos. I tried replicating this taking at least 50 photos to ensure it wasn’t an artifact. I was completely still when takimg the photos and whatever this was had to moving. It seems to have came straight out of the clouds downwards leaving a light trail. It had to be moving extremely fast. I enhanced the photos and you can also see some type of patern on the lower part of the object. Almost like sections and some kind of markings.
Note: This is an unusual photo. The “disk shaped” object could be an artifact, but the witness took other photos and the object wasn’t present. This suggests that the object may have been present and then zipped away.
At approx. 8:30 am on a clear sky morning I saw what at first looked like an airplane. I did a second take and said, “Holy F#@k, what the hell is that?” It was silver and looked like an old DC 9, with no windows, tail, wings, no noise, no trail, no engines. Hard to guess the speed, but probably about 10 miles an hour. It was about 20 degrees vertical from my viewpoint, and if it was huge, it may have been somewhere over the Park Rapids airport, about 3 miles South of my observation. It was only visible for about 6 seconds. I yelled at my wife to come and see while I grabbed my phone a few steps away… and it was gone. I was quick enough that if it was just a drone or something, I would have seen it fall or drop down. There are lots of small planes, medical helicopters, as well as small jets that use the airport, or fly over, and I am only 3 miles North of it. There was no noise from this Silver Cylinder, unlike all the aircraft just mentioned. Either a UFO or an amazing secret U.S. technology. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
3 people woke up to a loud noise at 3:30AM. We took time to find our glasses. We also took some time to lower the heat. We checked to see if the cats were okay. We looked around briefly to see where the noise was coming from. The sound was nothing that we could attribute to any normal day to day sound, but was most similar to the sound of a hovering camera or something of that sort. Except it was so incredibly loud that we all woke from our sleep because of it. It was so loud and bright that we opened the front door to go outside. Opening the front door, it was obvious that the sound was external because it increased in volume. Stepping out towards the sidewalk, we saw something circular and gun metal hovering. We froze for a second and then panicked and ran inside. Shut and locked the doors. The sound continued for a few more minutes. However, when we returned to the room the clock still said 3:30AM even though so many micro events seemed to have occurred during that time. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On March 12, 1965, James Flynn of East Fort Myers, Florida, an experienced woodsman, headed deep into the Everglades with his four hunting dogs. He had planned to spend several days there. On the night of the 14th his hunting dogs took after a deer. Later, hearing a sound like a gunshot, Flynn started up his swamp buggy and headed off in search of his dogs.
One of his dogs had returned, which he had placed in its cage, and it accompanied him on his search for the others.
Around 1 a.m., on Monday, March 15th, Flynn spotted something unusual that he judged to be slightly over a mile away. Whatever it was, it was hovering, shaped like a broad, upside-down cone, an estimated 200 feet in the air above some cypress trees. After a while it began flying off toward the Northeast.
After some 2 to 3 minutes, it returned to the same place, and hovered again, this time for an estimated 5 minutes. Then it took off toward the Southwest at a high rate of speed.
Soon, however, it returned to the same location again.
At this point, Flynn was only about a quarter of a mile away, and the object seemed to come down among some trees into a small knoll. Flynn figured, up to this point, that he was observing a helicopter of some sort, but then he began to study it through a pair of binoculars and he realized that he wasn’t looking at a helicopter at all.
Then he began to suspect that it was some secret craft from Cape Canaveral.
Flynn described the object as some 25 feet high, and twice that in its diameter. Up near the top were four tiers of two-foot-square square window-looking sections that emitted a yellowish glow.
The thing was metallic, and seemed to be made of four-by-four plates that appeared to be held together with rivets. Around the base there was an orange-red illumination that seemed to cast a glow on the ground some 75 feet around its rim.
Sometime later he regains consciousness. Finding himself initially blind he lays there for a long while until he recovers a small amount of vision in his left eye. By this time, the sun is shining and its Tuesday morning.
Flynn gathers up his dogs and makes his way to the home of Henry Osceola, a Seminole Indian who lived there in the Everglades swamp.
It isn’t until noon Wednesday that Flynn returns home. He and his wife go immediately to pay a visit to ophthalmologist, Paul R. Brown. Dr. Brown finds Flynn’s vision 20/800 in his right eye, 20/60 in his left eye. He notes a slight bruise over his right brow. The left eye appeared normal, but in the right eye he could not see the retina.
Flynn complained of hearing reduction and numbness in his arms and hands following the encounter. Under careful observation and treatment by Dr. Harvie J. Stipe, a physician who had known Flynn for 25 years, Flynn was treated, and soon those symptoms disappeared.
In October 1966, in a phone interview with Arizona physicist James E. McDonald, Flynn stated that the UFO was probably, he figured, some secret aircraft of ours, and that if he could ever prove it then somebody would pay for the good eye he used to have.
On March 26, Flynn, Dr. Stipe, and two others, returned to the encounter site in the Everglades, and there found a burned circle some 72 feet across. The circle looked like it had been swept clean of leaves, twigs, limbs — normal forest debris. Eight cypress trees were scorched from their tops down to about halfway from the ground.
In July 1996, Flynn made a rare public appearance at Port Charlotte, Florida, where he stated: “I’m waiting for the day someone turns up the truth about this thing. I hope I live that long.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Miguel [last name withheld] while doing his regular exercises and stargazing in his backyard, reported seeing a boomerang traveling from the northeast (generally over the greater Los Angeles region) to the southwest (generally over the Pacific Ocean toward Santa Catalina Island). According to Miguel’s CMS report, the boomerang was over 300 feet in size, had a dark surface, white exterior lights, no emissions and no sound. It maintained a constant speed and elevation, had “fuzzy edges”, and a “mist or shroud” about it. There were no colored running lights on the extreme ends of the boomerang. He saw a helicopter in the area after the object flew past. Miguel attached the artist’s impression of a boomerang shown below to illustrate what he saw. It was at a distance of more than one mile.
His description of the incident follows: “While doing my exercise in my backyard, I paused to look at the sky for Orion’s belt and other stars. I then looked northeast to see a boomerang-shaped craft about the size of two football fields, side-by-side. I thought it was too wide to be a military plane (and those make a ton of noise). I could not see a fuselage or red and/or blue [green?] lights at the ‘wing’ tips. The white lights it had remained constant. The outline towards the back was dim even before going off in the distance. The craft’s speed was consistent (did not speed up or slow down). I will attach an artist’s rendition of what I saw.”
MAY 28, 1965………….Townsville, North Queensland, Australia
May 28, 1965 – 3:25 a.m. local time – Duration 10-15 minutes – Aircraft Ansett-A.N.A. DC-6B – Photos Confiscated
The pilot and aircrew of an Ansett-A.N.A. DC-6B (call sign VH-INH) was en route from Brisbane, Australia, to Port Moresby, New Guinea.
The pilot called Townsville Ground Control and spoke to operator William Orr, informing him that his aircraft was being buzzed by a UFO.
The pilot gave his position as above or abreast of Bougainville Reef. The object was a flattened sphere with what looked like exhaust gases coming from it. It paced the airliner for 10-15 minutes, then accelerated and raced ahead and out of sight.
Photographs were taken during the sighting. The pilot was diverted back to Brisbane and from there flown to Canberra where the film was taken from him and we were told he was instructed to tell no person of this incident.
The audiotapes of air traffic control transmissions at Townsville also were confiscated. Some days after this air traffic controller Orr was told to “shut his mouth” about the incident, with the added threat that if he didn’t he might be dismissed by the Department of Civil Aviation.
BELOW IS THE UPDATED INVESTIGATION
“At 3.25 am, May 27, 1965, a UFO paced an airliner for ten minutes over Bougainville Reef off North Queensland. I do remember the incident well. It was unofficially named the Bougainville Reef sighting. It’s all documented.
“It’s an incredible story to say the least. The Federal Government went to great lengths in attempting to cover it all up and really carried on like bloody amateurs. It was too large to suppress, with too many witnesses, and to this day I cannot believe why they didn’t come straight out and admit the facts, without going on with all the nonsense they embarked upon with their incompetent opinions.”
“Just to give you an indication of how vital the circumstances of this matter were, in 1967 Dr. James McDonald, a professor in the Department of Meteorology from the University of Arizona in the United States, and senior physicist in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, came to Australia to investigate this matter as well as other Australian sightings, including the Papua sighting I have already spoken about.
“He was without doubt, just about the top authority on this subject in the United States. Now, what about him for a person of impeccable credibility and unimpeachable character? Makes you think doesn’t it?”
“Okay, I’ll go along with that. What was the result of his trip to Australia?”
Carter sat up. He leaned forward and began to tap and bounce his pencil on the desk. “Bougainville Reef is about 260 kilometres east of Cooktown, and details of this sighting were not made available until the arrival of Professor McDonald from America.
Anyhow this is what I became aware of. The Captain of a DC6 airliner, which I think was a DC6 chartered by TAA from Ansett, or vice versa, I’m not too sure now, but it was one or the other. The Captain described a ’round-shaped object’ flying parallel to them for ten to fifteen minutes, in a radio message to Air Traffic Control at Townsville.
The radio message was tape recorded on flight control tapes at Townsville. At the time, a man named Bill Orr was the control officer. Other members of the plane crew sighted and witnessed this object, and each of them spoke, and was taped, to confirm what they were witnessing.”
“The Captain advised the Townsville control tower that he was taking photographs of the saucer (which were confiscated), which continually buzzed his aircraft and letting off what the Captain thought to be red exhaust gases. Of course all of this conversation to the Townsville Air Traffic control officer was being recorded on tape.”
“Where was the DC6 travelling to?”
“From Sydney to Port Moresby. Looking back, I can now recall that when the pilot arrived back in Brisbane, he was immediately flown down here to Canberra, where he was quizzed as to what he had seen. Our Government authorities also seized the flight control tapes from the Townsville aerodrome with conversations about this incident. The Captain’s camera and films were also confiscated and the entire crew, after being questioned, were warned of a penalty of immediate dismissal if they spoke to anyone about this incident.”
“So what was the final outcome?”
“Well, things became a bit embarrassing for the Government when Professor McDonald arrived in Brisbane on the 9th of June 1967 to look into this matter, to say nothing of the media getting into the act with headlines such as “Why the secrecy?” Professor McDonald had been well informed, and from some source he and his investigators tracked down one of the retired air hostesses who had been a crew member that night. She confirmed without doubt what had occurred. NOTE” The above image is CGI.
In July of 1965, In Valensole, France, a farmer named Maurice Masse claimed that he saw two children standing in his field. Masse was attempting to find a solution to why his lavender crop had bare spots of ground. As Masse approached the “children,” he noticed an unusual object close by. Now with a much closer view, the children were not children at all, but “strange looking beings.”
Masse described them as having large, bald heads, pasty faces, and huge, slanted eyes that stared out at him. He also related that they were wearing coveralls of some sort, and one of them was holding a tube-like device, standing by an odd-looking craft. Masse swore that as he approached the object, he was hit by some sort of ray, which disabled him for a time. When he awoke, he saw the object flying off into the sky.
Fearing ridicule, he was reluctant at first to report his incident, but in time, he came forward with the facts. During an interview, Maurice was shown a drawing representative of an object that had landed in Socorro, New Mexico, the previous year. The object had been seen by policeman Lonnie Zamora, who later made a sketch of it. Masse remarked, “Someone else has seen my UFO.”
According to the farmer, he was not able to grow anything in the area of the incident for years to come. Neither the Masse nor Zamora case proves the existence of extraterrestrial life, but especially in the Zamora case, there is no doubt that some type of unusual craft with occupants did land, and take off again.
Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who interviewed Zamora on more than one occasion, believes every word that Zamora said, however, offers no explanation for his sighting. In Hynek’s own words; “There is much more evidence to indicate that we are dealing with a most real phenomenon of undetermined origin.” If what Zamora saw was not of extraterrestrial origin, then where did it come from? Why did it land? Who were the strange occupants? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden looking through my high powered zoom binoculars when I spotted a strange structured craft that was off to the west and was quite far away in the distance but, still discernible. It was moving diagonally through a cloud and I could see that the craft was metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off of it’s surface. It definitely wasn’t anything conventional and that’s why it had caught my attention. I put my binoculars down on the garden table and picked up my Nikon P900 camera. I then zoomed in on the craft and immediately took a photograph just before it flew up through the clouds and disappeared into the atmosphere. I was ecstatic I had once again captured a very compelling photograph of an alien craft high above the town. This is another genuine U.A.P. that I have managed to capture. It really is rather unfortunate that people don’t believe me when I have taken the time to submit my photographs to them. All the people who don’t believe me should come here to Newton Abbot when lockdown has ended to sky watch for a few hours just like I do every day. Then they would also see these strange aerial craft. The problem is that debunkers won’t put the time or effort into researching this topic, instead they sit at their computers spending hours on social media slandering and discrediting real UFO researchers like me who are genuine and are trying there best to get a real understanding of what is going on with this phenomena. These craft are real and are very prevalent around this area due to the town’s close proximity to the moors and the sea. I have been researching this topic for a very long time now and I know for a fact that these alien craft are coming out of the sea and flying up to the moors where they are mutilating sheep and pony’s for soft genetic material. The true purpose of why they are collecting this genetic material still remains a mystery, but I surmise that these beings are growing body’s so they can move more of their kind from there dimension over to our physical plane of existence. The photograph was taken at 11:39 AM on the 29th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
KENS NOTE: John Mooner is my Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos. He surely lives in a UFO hot spot and has submitted hundreds of alien craft photos over the years.
I heard and felt a soft pulsating sound above me. I looked up and viewed straight above me, a triangle shaped craft, color was red/orange matte with no shading, same shade from edge to edge). Slight rounded edges and corners were slightly rounded. It was below higher clouds and was maybe 500 feet in air. No markings, nor openings or view ports opened, all closed. Craft moved steady, slowly, did not turn off course and appeared to be larger then length of a semi and trailer, aprox 100 feet. I did not report craft, because I felt they needed time to repair craft. I have seen same type of craft in Michigan in 1969 and have seen military craft during training films at attack squadron 901 in Millington Tennessee Naval Air Station while in USMC. While doing my training in 1972 we were shown films of classes of UFO’s and has been known to engage and destroy military aircraft. Film showed remains of USMC aircraft under magnification which showed metal looked like a sponge (like rad/nuke strike damage). A pulse laser type weapon was used. I have learned a lot regarding this type of craft, and wonder why government lies so much about it. I could not only hear the magnetic pulses from the craft as it passed overhead, but could feel slight vibration too. This is not normal for the power unit craft uses they haven’t vibrated, sound wise since mid 60’s. I feel the craft had a magnetic imbalance, which they were correcting at time I saw them above me. Craft should move silent, no vibration or pulse. If magnetic is balanced, a slight hum is all that is heard. When I was 14 I was taken by one of these craft, (1966) Michigan, and craft had same pulsating sound that was what I first noticed when heard/felt vibration/sounds. It was exact as one from my past but todays craft, should not be making these sounds/vibrations unless being readjusted. I am wondering if others have knowledge of this subject matter? I know they keep checking on me every few years, and desire no harm, and can’t help humans until world leaders get their acts together. I will be open to those that have knowledge of what I am speaking of. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A curious landing report, in New York state on Aug. 19, 1965, has been thoroughly checked by NICAP, state police, and a five-man AF team. This sighting, which occurred on the William Butcher dairy farm near Cherry Creek, N.Y., involved three members of the Butcher family and a fourth witness. Here is their report:
At 8:20 PM, Harold Butcher, 16, was operating a milking machine in a dairy barn housing 17 cows. A portable radio on the wall was turned to a newscast, when a sudden static-like interference drowned it out.
Then the tractor which ran the milking machine abruptly stopped. A moment later, a Holstein bull secured outside began to bellow and pull at a steel bar to which it was chained.
Young Butcher ran to a window and saw a large elliptical object near the ground, a fourth of a mile away. A reddish vapor could be seen underneath, and he heard a steady beep-beep sound. The UFO was on the ground only a few seconds, then it shot straight up, disappearing in low clouds.
When the other witnesses came out, after Harold Butcher phoned the house, they noticed a strange odor, also a greenish glow in the clouds where the UFO had vanished. Meantime, it was found that the bull had bent the steel bar in his efforts to get loose.
Half an hour later, when the strange craft reappeared, circling the area, Mrs. Butcher called the State police. Two troopers investigated, notified the AF. Next day, Capt. James Dorsey, Operations Officer, 4621st AF Group, arrived with four AF technicians.
When they examined the ground, an odd, purplish liquid substance was discovered at several places. Small unexplained marks, two inches wide and two inches apart, also were found, along with patches of singed grass and foliage.
After the AF team left, NICAP member Jeffrey Gow obtained samples of the purplish substance and singed foliage, and samples were studied by the Kawecki Chemical Co., whose president is a NICAP adviser.
Spectrographic analysis showed the main elements of the liquid to be aluminum, iron and silicon. Some phosphorous was found in the weed samples, which the analyst said might cause a phosphate smell, explaining the odor.
On the night following the Cherry Creek incident, State Trooper Richard Ward, a few miles from this area, watched an object with eight circular lights in line flying twice as fast as a jet. It emitted a faint, unfamiliar, purring sound.
Dr. Fred C. Fair and John Maxwell, of NICAP New York Subcommittee No. 2, carefully checked the Cherry Creek site and questioned the witnesses.
On the basis of present evidence, they believe the report is genuine. Dr. Fair has confirmed that two state troopers who investigated also seem to be convinced.
A 3-year-old Holstein bull was secured to a steel bar outside of a dairy barn containing 17 cows. About 8:20 PM, Harold Butcher, 16, was operating the milking machine when the radio had static-like interference and the tractor motor running the milking machine cut off.
The bull made a noise “like I have never heard come from an animal before.”
Harold looked out the window at the bull, which was trying to get lose, and he saw an elliptical object nearing the ground with a “beep-beep” sound about a quarter of a mile away (1320 feet). After hovering briefly on or near the ground, the object shot up into low clouds.
As the object rose, the noise pitch increased to a level approximating a sonic boom. The cows produced only one can of milk that evening rather than the normal 2 ½ cans. Later examination of the bar to which the bull was secured found it bent.
The object was metallic-looking, football shaped, and estimated to be 50 feet long and 20 feet thick. A reddish vapor was emitted from the bottom area and when the object rose, the red vapor shot toward the ground and bounced back toward the object.
The clouds had a greenish glow where the object had vanished.
At 9 PM, the object was seen again by several people at the farm. It now had a glowing yellow vapor trail.
The clouds still appeared to have a green glow. State police were called and investigated and the Air Force investigated. This incident involved EM effects. A tractor motor shut down, the barn radio and house radio had static-like interference, but a telephone between the barn and house apparently worked.
Physical traces included an odor, ground marks, a purple liquid, and grass bent over and singed.
Physiological effects included Harold and his younger sister having upset stomachs, and the cows giving less than normal amounts of milk. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At Approximately 8:45 pm on Monday February 8,2021 I was sitting on my back porch with my daughter and I heard a helicopter coming from the west. There have been a lot of them lately so I went to the screen door to look out. I couldn’t see the helicopter at first so I stepped out on to my pool deck to get a better view. I noticed something coming through the trees from the west and saw the helicopter lights further back from this object. As the object came closer over the trees I could see plainly it was a disc shaped flying craft very large and silver and iridescent in color. It had a very subtle glow about it The Helicopter was behind and to the right of the object and seemed to not be chasing it but instead seemed to be escorting it as they moved across the sky. There was no noise or wind from the craft but I could hear the helicopter quite plainly. As they approached and I could see the disc shaped craft had no markings of any type and appeared to be seamless except for the bottom of the craft which seemed to have a square hatch or bay with a line down the center of the hatch. It also had a second deck that appeared to have windows that were illuminated but I could not see any movement within. As they both continued to the east I was in awe and thrilled that I was lucky enough to see this object so close and then I realized I didn’t have my cell phone to take a picture as it was in the house and would have taken too long to retrieve it. So as they continued to the east and I lost sight of them through the trees. I can’t tell what type of helicopter it was because my focus was on the strange craft. Well about 20 minutes later I hear the Helicopter coming back from the east passing to the southside of the house going to the west I again stepped out on the back porch and saw 2 lights, 1 red and 1 multiple colors moving very quickly to the west with the helicopter chasing them. Again no sounds from the lights but the helicopter was screaming behind them, definitely chasing them. I lost sight as they went behind the trees. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Robert Campbell, Patrolman Peter McCollum, Sherman TX; Aug 2, 1965. 3 AM: “… a glowing UFO hovered near Sherman, TX. Broadcasting stations, police, and other agencies had been flooded with reports for hours. Television cameraman Robert Campbell was out with Patrolman Peter McCollum, interviewing witnesses and watching the objects for themselves.
Campbell took a still picture of the hovering UFO. A two minute time exposure while he and the police officer watched the thing. The picture was overexposed, possibly due to the brilliance of the UFO…”
“… I investigated ‘on-location’ at Sherman, TX… was photographed by television newsman Bob Campbell… He had been monitoring police calls on his radio and he left his home at 3:00 AM, armed with a 4×5 Speed Graphic and Tri-X film, to photograph the strange light he had heard reported on the police radio.
“Shortly after midnight a news photographer for a local television station, heard on his short wave radio, two police highway patrols discuss reports of an UFO tracked on radar and streaking towards the Texas border.
“The photographer took his 4×5 Speed Graphic camera and drove into town, where he met the Chief of Police. Together the two men searched for the object, and soon sighted it hanging stationary thirteen miles east of Sherman, on Highway 82.
“Its outline was clearly defined in the north-eastern sky, and the photographer set up his camera. He took four exposures, two minutes each at three-minute intervals. The negatives have been carefully examined by Air Force scientific advisers and by astronomical experts. No acceptable explanation has been found for the object recorded on the negatives. It must be considered a UFO.”
“The remarkable aspect of this particular incident is that, having been alerted by the same radio broadcast, several other individuals were also watching the object. Campbell and McCollum were one mile east of Bells, OK.
Highway patrolman Bill Quires was watching from Durant, 30 mi north of Bells, and Department of Public Safety Dispatcher Jim Faglia was watching from a point seven miles south of Sherman, thus precluding the possibility that the object could have been a planet or a star.”
The object’s shape was a cylinder with “Mercury capsule” shape at one end, possibly rounded at other end. Several distinct bands around diameter of cylinder, with disc shaped “bosses” on surface. Bands of luminosity.
An extrusion of luminosity from one band, and an ejection of an unknown material accompanied the object.
On January 25th, 2021, I hit the road from Newburgh , NY to Fishkill, NY to pick up my wife. She gets out of work at 11:45 PM. I picked her up and we got back on the road. I was driving the vehicle and she was sitting next to me. We have a Kia SUV. I was driving on the right lane about 50 miles per hour speed. This highway is known as Interstate 84 west. Two lanes going east and two lanes going west. Around 11:55 pm, an object suddenly passed from the right front corner of our vehicle to the left front corner with a tremendous speed. The object looked like tube-shaped, and fluorescent in color. It passed with a tremendous speed and left behind a flutter. It looked like this flutter was the replaced atmosphere that was visible through our headlights. We passed through this flutter. Next, my wife said what was that? She said was that a deer? I said I have never seen a tube-shaped, fluorescent white deer that travels with the speed of light. She said it could be a bird. I repeated myself and said it was not an animal, plant, or human. My wife and I communicated perfectly up until that point. Next, I looked at my left mirror and what I saw shocked me. There was an object about the size of a dumpster truck, gold in color, disc shaped with a huge majestic platform in the middle was flying at the left rear corner of our vehicle. The object positioned itself over the left lane and was travelling (flying) in the same direction with us. I said ” I see it. There is an object behind us. Oh my God! What is this? This cannot be a bird. It is too big and not flapping wings. ” Later my wife said she never heard me saying this. I clearly remember making this statement out loud. The object got closer and it was almost parallel to the rear seats. So , I said ” It is getting so close !” I said this last statement out loud in panic and shock. My wife later said that I have never said that. Apparently , my wife and I were disconnected for some reason. In those seconds, I have the following thoughts in my mind : ” I have been put into this situation against my will. Now, I have to deal with it, and manage the situation professionally. I should be a good boy and do not do anything wrong. ” Next, my thoughts were to pull over to the side of the road and stop. However, my instincts then said not to because the object might stop in front of us and we might end up evacuating our vehicle, and what if they did the same ? At this moment, I felt everything like very slow motion.
I really could not tell if our tires were on the road and if I was really driving our vehicle. I wonder if time was really ticking at that point. All I saw from the left mirror was the surface of the object. Therefore, the object totally blocked my left mirror view. The surface of the object was gold in color and it looked porous. After these agonizing moments, the object began to distance itself from our vehicle. The object had done this very very aesthetically. While the distance between us and the object was increasing gradually, the object was increasing its altitude gradually as well. Finally, there was a rightward curve on the road and I checked where the object was from my left mirror. In this final moment, it was over the medium at the left of the left lane. It looked like it stopped there in midair. This was the last time I saw the object. I said ” the object disappeared” out loud. My wife later said that she did not hear it either. We travelled a little bit and I said to my wife ” call police”. She was able to communicate with me at this point . She later said that after the conversation about deer, it was the only statement I made. Of course, this was not true. Because I made numerous statements after I spotted the object behind us till it disappeared. Anyway, my wife said why are we calling the police. She said let it go. I said we cannot let it go. Because there was so many other vehicles on the road and someone might get hurt or worse. I said we do our share to inform police. Since my wife forgot her phone at home that day (which is very unusual), she tried to use my phone. Next, she said she cannot call because there are no icons on my cell phone, not even a single one. I asked her if she could text message someone but she said no way. I said forget it. There were only a couple of miles until we got home. Finally, we got home and I parked our vehicle. After I stopped the engine, I asked my wife if she may try to call the police again.
This time all the icons were there, She called Orange County police department. They transferred her to Dutchess , and Dutchess transferred her to NY State police. Finally we informed NY state police about what happened that night. After that I did not want to get out of our vehicle of my fear that what if something was beneath the vehicle.. After I said this comment to my wife, she said don’t worry. There cannot be anything under the vehicle. Next, she opened the door and stepped out. It was my turn to open the door slowly and step out gently. Next day, we were contacted by someone in Washington DC. This man introduced himself, his phone number, and address. He wanted us to write this incident separately including any drawings and mail it to them. The object was able to go in one direction and then the opposite. It was easily changing its altitude and speed. The object managed to come to a full stop in midair over the medium at the left of the left lane. I did not have a chance to see the bottom of it. I did not see any lights either. Apparently, my wife and I were disconnected within the time frame between the conversation about the deer (we both remember) and the conversation about calling the law enforcement (again we both remember). However, anything said between these two time frames were somehow not heard. The disconnection between me and my wife coincides with the time frame the object positioned itself to our left till the object disappeared. One last observation: I did drive there today. I recorded where we got chased. I noticed that the object chased us in some very interesting part of the highway. This part of the highway towards east is covered by long and high hills from both sides. It is like a corridor with walls at both sides. Therefore, east and west bound vehicles cannot see each other in this part of the highway. We did not see any vehicles ahead of us in this strip that night. Likewise, I did not see any vehicles behind us in the strip either. Apparently, we were the only vehicle passing through this part of the highway. An excellent place to hunt. The object disappeared almost where the strip ends. Afterwards, we travelled a couple of minutes where east and west bound vehicles were able to see each other. At this point a semi-truck passed us.

Tulsa, Oklahoma; August 3, 1965. The Tulsa Oklahoma photographic case is an extremely interesting one in that we have one excellent photograph of a multi-colored object which fails to resemble any known flying object, past or present.
The events leading to the taking of the picture were as follows:
At about 1:30 AM, Mr. A. L. Smith, accompanied by his 14 year old son Alan, and three other witnesses , were captivated with watching an unusual, multi-colored UFO.
Mr. Smith was a turbine engine specialist, working with American Airlines.
The unknown object seemed to be slowly moving toward the five witnesses. Still some several hundred yards away, it paused briefly and hovered.
At that precise moment, Alan snapped a photograph with his inexpensive camera, using ASA 64 film. Alan decided not to try for a second shot.
He took his camera inside the house, and ran back outside just in time to see the object rapidly flying away into the night sky.
His picture was extensively analyzed, pronounced authentic, and later published by Life magazine and many newspapers.
The picture was taken by my friend’s daughter outside her home on Sunday, November 15th 2020. She did not take the photo because of the UFO, she did not know it was there until looking at the photo afterwards. The reason she took the picture of the sky was that the sky was a very strange colour. (unfortunately, the camera doesn’t show this) I remember the time because my son and I went to the shop at a similar time and he said to me that the sky looked very apocalyptical, and it did.
The sky was a very yellow/bronze type of colour, it did seem and feel a bit odd because it was unusual. It seems to be travelling SSW and if you look carefully, there is some type of pattern on the edges that looks like a zebra camo’ pattern. You can also sea a load of seagulls in the sky to the left of the Triangle UFO.
KENS NOTE: Sometimes the camera captures what our eyes cannot see. Many camera capture photos are usually explainable and most seem to be camera lens flair but every once in a while we get the real thing.
In the wee hours of the night on a cold, September 3, 1965, eighteen-year-old Muscarello made his trek.
It was about 2:00 AM that this lonely hitchhiker first noticed an unusual light in the dark skies. The light became an object, which suddenly came from the sky towards the young man.
The object was described as approximately 90 feet in diameter, with bright, beaming lights that appeared around its rim.
Silently, the object began to wobble and float toward the frightened man. His fear of actually being hit caused him to fall to the ground by the side of the road. At the last moment, the object floated away from him.
Muscarello took this opportunity to jump up and run to a nearby house, pounding on the front door. The house was the home of Carl Dining. No one answered his frantic pleas for help.
Meanwhile, at the Exeter Police Station, Officer Eugene Bertrand received a call from a frightened woman who stated that a large, silent object with flashing lights had followed her car for twelve miles from the city of Epping to a spot on the road where she pulled off in fear.
After she stopped her automobile, the strange object had disappeared into the night. Bertrand did not make an official report on the woman’s call, believing it to be untrue or a trick.
Meanwhile, Muscarello, not finding anyone at the farmhouse, ran back into the road, and flagged down a passing car.
A middle-aged couple stopped to render aid. They drove the weary traveler to the Exeter Police Station. Muscarello, full of excitement, began to recount the events of the last hour on Route 150.
B J’s Note: Muscarello would later relate that the male driver of the car was never identified in Fuller’s book because the woman with him at 2:00 AM wasn’t hia wife.
The desk Officer, Reginald “Scratch” Toland, is now convinced that something has happened, and radios to Officer Bertrand, who is now on patrol. At about 3:00 AM, Bertrand arrives at the station, and after hearing Muscarello’s story, thinks he may have discounted the earlier call from the woman too quickly.
Convinced that Muscarello’s story is real, Officer Bertrand takes Muscarello back to the spot on Route 150 where the incident began. At this point, Bertrand has no idea what lies ahead of him this night.
Arriving at the scene, the two men scan the area, and at first see nothing out of the ordinary. By the road, there is a large open field, the house that Muscarello had visited, and a horse corral. They begin to walk out into the open field in the direction of the horse corral.
The horses seemed to be a little edgy, and suddenly dogs began to bark. From behind two pine trees, an object begins to rise, lighting the whole area with a reddish hue.
Muscarello screams, “I see it! I see it!”
The next moment, Bertrand says, “My God, I see the damn thing myself!”
It is important to note that Bertrand had been in the Air Force for four years, and knew military aircraft.
He would later insist “this wasn’t like anything I had seen before.”
Like a leaf floating, the object slowly moved toward the two men. They scurried back to the police car. The object is now hovering about one hundred feet above the ground, some fifty yards from the police car.
(source 2) According to Bertrand:
“Norman and I came out here and I parked right about where we are parked right now. We sat looking for several minutes but didn’t see anything unusual. I radioed the station and told them that there was nothing out here.
They asked me to take a walk into the field for a quick look before coming back in. I felt kind of foolish walking out here on private property after midnight, looking for a flying saucer!”
Bertrand then suggested that we go out to the field so that he could show me where he and Norman had been. We got out of the car and strolled into the field toward a corral.
“We walked out about this far,” he said “I waved my flashlight back and forth, and then Norman shouted, ‘Look out, here it comes!’ I swung around and could hardly believe what I was seeing. There was this huge, dark object as big as that barn over there with red flashing lights on it. It barely cleared that tree right there, and it was moving back and forth.”
“What did you guys do when you saw that thing?” I asked.
“Well, it seemed to tilt and come right at us. Norman told me later that I was yelling, ‘I’ll shoot it! I’ll shoot it!’ I did automatically drop on one knee and drew my service revolver, but I didn’t shoot. I do remember suddenly thinking that it would be unwise to fire at it, so I yelled to Norman to run for the cruiser, but he just froze in his tracks. I practically had to drag him back!”
“How close was the object to you then?” I asked.
“It seemed to be about one hundred feet up and about one hundred feet away. All I could see at that point was bright red with sort of a halo effect. I thought we’d be burned alive, but it gave off no heat and I didn’t hear any noise. I called Dave Hunt on the radio. He was already on his way out here, and arrived in just a few minutes. Whatever it was, it must have really scared the horses in that barn.”
“Why do you say that? Did you hear them from here?” I asked.
“Yeh, you could hear them neighing and kicking in their stalls. Even the dogs around here started howling. When Dave arrived, the three of us just stood there and watched it. It floated, wobbled, and did things that no plane could do. Then it just darted away over those trees toward Hampton.”
“What did you do then?” I asked.
“Well, we all returned to the station to write up our report. We’d only been back a short while when a call came in from the Hampton telephone operator. She told us that she’d just talked to a man who was calling from a phone booth and was very upset. He said that he was being chased by a flying saucer and that it was still out there!
Before she could connect him with us, the connection was broken. We went out looking for him and even went to the hospital to see if he’d been brought in there, but we never found out who he was.”
The object’s light is so intense, that it is difficult to make out its shape. The lights emanating from the craft dim and then brighten, from left to right, and then right to left. The object now begins to slowly move away from the men, in the direction of the city of Hampton.
At this very moment, another Policeman, David Hunt, arrives at the scene to witness the craft in the sky, as it fades out of sight. In a matter of minutes, the craft is sighted in Hampton, and a report made to Pease Air Force Base.
Mrs. Virginia Hale, a reporter for the Haverhill Gazette, also sees the unknown craft from her kitchen window as it hovers over a neighbor’s house for about 4 minutes.
There were many other reported sightings of a similarly described craft over the next several weeks, but it is uncertain if they were all legitimate or not. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
About 11:00 p.m. on the night of Friday, September 3, Deputy Sheriff Bob Goode, 50, was driving his patrol car south out of Damon in Texas toward West Columbia on Highway 36. Since he had suffered a bite on his left index finger earlier that day from a baby alligator, he had asked Chief McCoy along in the event the pain flared up and interfered with his driving.
It was a sparkling clear moonlit Texas night, and Goode rested his arm in the open window of the door as they drove through the prairie.
Suddenly McCoy spotted a bright purple light on the horizon to the Southwest which appeared to be about five to six miles distant. At first they thought it might be something in the nearby oil fields, perhaps an oil-drilling rig. But then a blue light, smaller in diameter than the purple light, emerged from it and moved to the right before stopping.
Both lights remained in this orientation for a while before beginning to drift upward. This upward floating motion continued until the objects reached an elevation of 5-10 degrees above the horizon.
Goode then studied the lights through a pair of binoculars, but could not make out any additional features. As their curiosity mounted, the officers began to look for back roads that might take them closer to the lights. They stopped again, and this time the lights suddenly swooped toward them, covering the intervening distance in 1-2 seconds, abruptly stopping practically overhead.
Their patrol car and the surrounding terrain were brightly illuminated in purple light. They could now see that the purple and blue lights were attached to opposite ends of an enormous object, hovering about 150 feet from them at about a 100-foot altitude.
In his later statement to the Air Force, McCoy described what he saw:
“The bulk of the object was plainly visible at this time and appeared to be triangular shaped with a bright purple light on the left end and the smaller, less bright, blue light on the right end. The bulk of the object appeared to be dark gray in color with no other distinguishing features. It appeared to be about 200 feet wide and 40-50 feet thick in the middle, tapering off toward both ends. There was no noise or any trail.
The bright purple light illuminated the ground directly underneath it and the area in front of it, including the highway and the interior of our patrol car. The tall grass under the object did not appear to be disturbed. There was a bright moon out and it cast a shadow of the object on the ground immediately below it in the grass.”
To both men, the object seemed to be “as big as a football field.” Goode could feel strong heat emanating from the object onto his left arm, through his shirt-sleeve.
The Damon, Texas sighting took a second seat to the more celebrated Exeter, New Hampshire case which occurred on the same date… I could find no other UFO reports on this date of any note.
Could the unknown objects which were seen earlier on the same day in New Hampshire have flown southwesterly down the Eastern coast of the United States, and moved over the Texas town of Damon?
After a few seconds, with the strange object hovering almost directly overhead, they fled the scene and headed toward Damon “as fast as we could go,” making speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. McCoy kept watching the object out the rear window of the car. For 10 to 15 seconds, the UFO continued to hover above the pasture.
Then it abruptly shot back in the direction from which it had come. “After arriving at approximately its original position,” McCoy reported, “it went straight up in the air and disappeared at 25-30 degrees above the horizon.”
Back at Damon, the shaken officers calmed themselves, and then decided to go back and investigate again. This time they drove down the Damon-West Columbia road, but saw nothing.
Finally they returned to the area where they had first seen the lights, and once again spied the purple light on the horizon, and again saw the smaller blue light emerge with a strange two-step motion and float upward. Fearing another close encounter, they again fled the area.
Goode and McCoy continued on their shift until three or four in the morning, then stopped for breakfast at a cafe. Goode noted that his alligator bite was no longer sore, and when he unwrapped the bandage he discovered that the swelling had gone down and that the wound was nearly healed.
Next day, the wound showed virtually no scarring.
The deputies reported the sighting to Ellington Air Force Base, and Major Laurence Leach, Jr., arrived on September 8, 1965, to interview McCoy and Goode and take a statement. Leach’s report to Project Blue Book headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base reflected his puzzlement.
“There is no doubt in my mind,” he said, “that they definitely saw some unusual object or phenomenon… Both officers appeared to be intelligent, mature, level-headed persons capable of sound judgment and reasoning.” US Air Force put this case in the “unknown” category. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In December 1965 onboard Gemini 7, astronauts James (Jim) Lovell and Frank Borman witnessed a UFO in space during their second orbit of the 14 day flight. Frank Borman reported seeing an unidentified spacecraft a distance away from their capsule .Jim Lovell’s communication with control reveals that they are seeing multiple UFO sightings and not the final stage booster of the Titan rocket used to launch them into space. Frank Borman stated that he could see the booster, and was also seeing something other that the final stage of the Titan rocket. Part of flight Gemini 7’s radio communications :Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that a actual sighting? Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL…ACTUAL SIGHTINGS. Capcom: …Estimated distance or size? Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT.
January 11, 1966 started like any other mid-winter day in the small suburban town of Wanaque, New Jersey.
The air was clear and cold, kids were enjoying the holiday vacation from school, and residents of the Passaic County borough went about their usual daily routines.
Little did they know that before the day was over something would happen, something fantastic and unexplainable, that would change the lives of many of the townsfolk forever.
It all started in the early evening of that Tuesday night. It was about 6:30 PM, and the winter sun was already long gone over the western horizon, past the great Wanaque reservoir, and behind the darkened Ramapo mountain range.
Wanaque Patrolman Joseph Cisco was in his cruiser when a call from the Pompton Lakes dispatcher came over his police radio. It was a report of a “glowing light, possibly a fire.”
Then as if right out of a sci-fi movie Cisco heard the words:
“People in Oakland, Ringwood, Paterson, Totowa, and Butler claim there’s a flying saucer over the Wanaque.”
“I pulled into the sandpit, an open area to get my bearings,” Cisco recalls. “There was a light that looked bigger than any of the stars, about the size of a softball or volleyball. It was a pulsating, white, stationary light changing to red. It stayed in the air; there was no noise. I was trying to figure out what it was.”
Wanaque Mayor Harry T. Wolfe, Councilmen Warren Hagstrom and Arthur Barton, and the Mayor’s 14-year-old son Billy were on their way to oversee the burning of the borough’s Christmas trees, when they heard the reports that something “very white, very bright, and much bigger than a star” was hovering over the Wanaque Reservoir.
They decided to pull into a sandpit near the Raymond Dam at the headworks to meet Officer Cisco and get a better look at the ‘thing.’
The Mayor’s son Billy spotted the object at once, flying low and gliding “oddly” over the vast frozen lake “like a huge star.” “But it didn’t flicker,” Billy told reporters the next day. “It was just a continuous light that changed from white to red to green and back to white.”
“The phenomenon was terribly strange.” Mayor Wolfe would later recall. He described the shape of the unidentified object as oval, and estimated it to be between two and nine feet in diameter.
The next thing that officer Cisco remembers is his patrol car’s radio “going bananas,” as calls from all over a 20-mile radius flooded into the police headquarters. Cisco radioed Officer George Dykman, who was on patrol nearby. Just as Dykman received Cisco’s message, two teenagers came running up to his patrol car frantically pointing at the sky and shouting “Look, look!”
At that moment Wanaque Civil Defense Director Bentley Spencer drove up with CD member Richard Vrooman. “The Police radios are all jammed up!” Spencer said excitedly. Dykman and Spencer gaped at the sky along with Michael Sloat, 16, and Peter Melegrae, 15. “What the heck is it?” Dykman wondered out loud. “Never seen anything like it in my life.”
Back at the sandpit Joseph Cisco’s radio crackled as another unbelievable message came across the airwaves: “Something’s burning a hole in the ice! Something with a bright light on it, going up and down!” Then another transmission fought its way through the din: “Oh boy! Something just landed in front of the dam!”
Spencer and reservoir employee Fred Steines raced to the top of the 1,500-foot long Raymond Dam where they described seeing “a bolt of light shoot down, as if attracted to the water… like a beam emitted from a porthole.”
Patrolman Cisco, Mayor Wolfe and Town Councilmen Hagstrom and Barton climbed to the top of the dam to get a better look.
“There was something up there that was awful bright.” Hagstrom recalls. “We don’t know what it was. We thought it was a helicopter, but we didn’t hear a motor. It looked like a helicopter with big landing lights on. We got goose bumps all over when we saw where the hole was.”
According to John Shuttle, another Councilman who witnessed the UFO, there was no doubt about it: “It was there.” He said. “I saw it, a brilliant white object, two to three feet across, and its color – no, not color, shade – it kept changing.”
JANUARY 12, 1966
One day after the initial sightings of the UFO, Patrolman Jack Wardlaw reported seeing a “bright white disk” floating in the vicinity of his home in the Stonetown section of Wanaque, just west of the reservoir.
“It seemed like only a block away, above Lilly Mountain, maybe 1,000 feet up,” Wardlaw said. “Don’t ask me what it was. But I do know it wasn’t any helicopter, plane, or comet. It shot laterally right and left. It stopped. It moved up straight. And then it moved down and disappeared in the direction of Ringwood to the north.”
Wardlaw described the object as “definitely disc-shaped and at certain angles, egg-shaped.”
Sgt. David Sisco said that he was on patrol at about 6:30 that evening when the UFO noiselessly hovered into view.
“It glided, then streaked faster than a jet,” he told reporters, “and when it rose, it went straight up.”
Reservoir guard and former Wanaque policeman Charles Theodora and Sisco went to the top of the dam to take a look at the bright light.
“We looked across the water and saw a cylinder-shaped object,” Theodora remembers.
“It was moving back and forth like a rocking chair motion. We were astonished.”
A few minutes later the object shot straight up into the night sky, until it was indistinguishable from the other stars. Theodora said that he didn’t hear a sound while the light show was going on.
“I didn’t believe in UFOs, I thought they were a lot of bull. And then I saw it. It was a breathtaking sight; something I’ll never forget.” After the January 1966 sightings, radar was installed atop the reservoir dam. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
First time I saw this object in the sky pulsating, was on May 2020. My youngest daughter was fascinated by this thing flying in the sky. I took a look and there I saw it, but I didn’t have a camera, it was gone in seconds. On October 27, 2020 at 7:46pm we were sky watching and we thought it was a satellite or a shooting star, but I didn’t know of any stars in that specific area and it behaved differently. I checked the sky app and confirmed it wasn’t. I believe this thing had so much energy of light it orbited around with it, and hovering around the sky and flashing. This continues for a few minutes. Then it made different shape, it formed itself like Saturn, like spreading that energy around. Then suddenly it’s like it was aware of us, quick flashes of camouflage it blurred the area around it and would reappear. I think it didn’t have enough energy and minutes later just flew away so fast.
I was the Captain of ((airline and flight # deleted)) on November 13, operating from Charlotte, NC to Harrisburg, PA. That flight departed the gate in CLT at 2017 local time. After takeoff, while climbing through an altitude of roughly 15,000 feet heading north, I saw an object out of the corner of my eye that then moved with very significant relative speed from the top of my field of view to at or below my perceived nighttime horizon, nearly vertically down with slight movement from left to right. It was moving at a speed consistent with a meteor, but white with no tail, and at roughly the horizon, it instantaneously stopped with no deceleration and changed direction, with no curvature of turn, to the north or northeast, roughly a few degrees right of our course. It disappeared away from our aircraft to the north in a fraction, maybe a quarter, of the time it took to move from the top of my field of view to the nearly the bottom. The light’s movement away appeared to me as a rapid dimming with slight movement to the right, which leads me to at the least perceive it as having rapidly moved away outside my range of sight to the north; that is how aircraft look as they disappear out of sight, albeit multiples slower. This entire event was a matter of a couple to a few seconds. The movement of the object from above to the horizon was roughly 1.5-2 seconds, the movement away possibly .5 seconds. This is an estimation based on perception.
With regard to our immediate interpretation of and reaction to the event, as well as my current opinion regarding it, I was immediately puzzled by what I saw. I said to my First Officer “Did you see that?”. His response was “Ya I saw that.” I said “that was not a meteor”, and he echoed that sentiment and said something to the effect of “It turned”. I then said “that wasn’t a plane either”, and my first officer agreed. We bounced ideas off each other for a few moments. During a quick shuffling of possible explanations in my head, an aircraft moving vertically toward earth had momentarily been an alarming one of them. But airplanes accelerate and decelerate, and when they turn, the turn is accomplished with curvature. They also have more lights than just bright white. This object moved across our entire field of view with great speed, instantaneously stopped with no deceleration, and shot off to the north, as if from a cannon. The angular change in direction was almost like a ! pinball bouncing off the bumper of a pinball machine, but with maybe the slightest pause as it made contact. Or a child’s bouncy ball bouncing off an angled surface dropped from above, rapidly changing direction to move laterally. It was not an airplane. We also discussed meteors, to include that we had both seen many meteors from aircraft throughout thousands of hours of flight time. The confident consensus was that the object had not been a meteor, for several reasons. First, and least compelling, was that they usually have a tail. This white, almost bluish white, object had no tail. More importantly, it would have been a meteor moving almost directly downward through our atmosphere with no flickering and no breakup. Beyond that, it would have been a clean, crisp, white meteor with no flickering, no tail, and no breakup, moving downward through our atmosphere to roughly our altitude before making a sudden and instantaneous, deceleration and acceleration-free, 90 degree turn to the north, disappearing faster than it crossed our field! of view It was not a meteor. After ruling out a few possibilities, it became clear that this object did not behave like anything either of us had ever seen while in flight. It showed no signs of being affected by an apparent enormous speed through our atmosphere, and it stopped and changed direction with seemingly no obedience to the Newtonian physics that we have such significant intuition for. Nothing I’ve seen, including fighter jets, change direction that sharply or move at that speed. We asked ATC, I believe Atlanta or Washington Center, if they had picked up an object rapidly descending in front of us. They mentioned an aircraft still above us slowly descending to another altitude above us. This was clearly not related to what we saw.
After several minutes discussing what we had seen, as well as the likelihood of us catching both flack and a drug test for a report of this nature, we both agreed that the right thing to do was to report it to air traffic control. We did that, and by that time, I believe Washington Center took my report. We also notified dispatch via ACARS message. We both possess copies of those messages. After providing that report, I thought to myself that the object’s path of motion had looked very much like a reverse checkmark, and I recall asking my first officer to draw the path he saw before communicating that specific notion to him. Whether I did ask or not, at that time he drew precisely that and handed it to me, the mirror image of a check mark, with the long side on the left, the short side on the right. We spoke about the object a few more times during that flight and trip, but we have not spoken about or corroborated our descriptions of the events we are both separately submitting, in order to not influence our individual recollection. On November 17th, an FAA UFO investigative team member contacted me through a member of company management and spoke with me before asking permission to pass my information to you for your organization’s investigative purposes. This report is submitted upon request from the subsequent contact. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
Hi Ken : I had gone outside to put some cardboard into the recycling box when I just happened to glance up at the sky and spot an object that I could not identify as being any type of known conventional aircraft. The object was slowly moving diagonally through the sky below the clouds and it was definitely something unusual and anomalous. I immediately dropped the cardboard and went running back inside to retrieve my Nikon P900 camera. Luckily I had left my camera nearby on the kitchen worktop so I quickly grabbed it and immediately went running back outside into the garden where I could still see the strange object in the sky. The object was now further away from my position so I zoomed in on it and took a photograph just before it flew off into the distance heading in the direction of Torquay. I eventually lost sight of the object but felt very fortunate to have captured it in a photograph. I see these strange unidentified objects all the time around here. I am so lucky to live in an area where these objects are so prevalent. Hopefully sometime soon in the not too distant future, someone in the government will pluck up the courage to come forward and tell the general public what exactly these strange aerial objects are, and why they are allowed to fly freely around British air space completely unchallenged. The Photograph was taken at 1:27 PM on the 26th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

ParaNet is deeply indebted to, and a little honored by, user Bill Cooper of Fullerton, California, for this, the first known report of a multiple military witness sighting that occurred onboard the submarine USS Tiru in 1966.
In 1966 during the month of the Rose Festival in the Pacific Northwest United States, the USS Tiru SS-416 left Pearl Harbor bound for Seattle Washington. The sub moored to a civilian pier near the downtown Seattle area and thousands of people toured the sub during its stay in Seattle.
After its duty as “showboat” it proceeded to a back bay area where it underwent torpedo trials. I believe the area was called Dabob bay [pronounced day-bob] but I am not sure of the spelling.
I include the above information because it should be easy to research. During the cruise from Pearl to Seattle five of the crew had a very unusual experience. During one late afternoon the sub was cruising on the surface at approx. 10 knots when the port lookout reported a strange contact at a range of 2 miles bearing 315 degrees relative.
The lookout refused to tell the OOD what it was that he had seen and instead insisted that the starboard lookout and the OOD both look at that area.
The three men looked through their binoculars toward the area reported and were astounded to see a metal craft larger than a football field tumble from the clouds into the ocean.
It actually tumbled end over end and when it hit the water and sank beneath the ocean huge geysers of water rose into the air. When the port lookout was sure that the others had seen it he then told the OOD that he had seen it tumble from the ocean up into the clouds.
The OOD and the starboard lookout were speechless. Within a few minutes, however, they all became excited when it again rose from the water and tumbled up into the cloud layer.
At about the same time a crew member below queried the bridge about a radar contact at the same range and bearing. Sonar also reported strange echos. The OOD called for the Captain to come to the bridge at that time.
He also called for the camera to be sent to the bridge. The Captain arrived on the bridge within 2 minutes and the Chief Quartermaster was right behind him with the camera.
At about the same time the object emerged from the clouds and fell down into the ocean. All five men witnessed this. The QMC took pictures as it rose up into the clouds and then back down into the ocean once again.
The five men watched for quite a while longer but nothing else happened. Soon the sub had moved out of visual range and the Captain told all witnesses that they were never to discuss what they had seen with anyone under any circumstances.
He stated that the incident was classified information. The Captain then went below and sent a radio msg. There was no doubt as to what we had seen.
It was a metal craft with machinery on and around the outside of it. It appeared to have windows or lenses placed around its perimeter. It made no noise that we could hear. It did not disturb the subs electrical systems nor did it affect the gyro compass. It looked very much like a round flying “ship” as in sea going ship.
It had the shape and form of a saucer with a bowl inverted in the saucer and it was huge. I will never forget it as long as I live.
When I first saw this craft I believe that my heart literally stopped beating and I was terrified. The name of the OOD was Ensign Ball. The starboard lookout was an American Indian seaman that the crew called Geronimo.
The port lookout was a new man who left the sub soon after the return to Pearl Harbor and his name was Cooper. I do not remember the Captain’s name nor the Chief Quartermaster’s name.
This is the first time I have ever mentioned it since the moment that the Captain told me that it was classified. As far as I know it has never been reported to the public before this instant.
It should be easy to verify the facts if you can get a copy of the log and/or contact the other witnesses.
The names should not be too hard to find in the ship’s records/logs. I was the port lookout. I must say that I feel a great uneasiness in posting this, much like the way I felt in Vietnam when my life was in great danger. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At 9:00 am on January 19, 1966, a calm sunny day, a 28 year old banana farmer named George Pedley was driving a tractor near Horseshoe Lagoon on the property of Albert Pennisi, near Tully, in tropical far north Queensland, Australia. When he was about 25 yards from the lagoon, he heard a loud hissing sound above the noise of the tractor.
Suddenly, an object rose out of the swamp. When I glanced at it, it was already 30 feet above the ground, and at about tree-top level. It was a large, grey, saucer-shaped object, convex on the top and bottom and measured some 25 feet across and 9 feet high.
While I watched, it rose another 30 feet, spinning very fast, then it made a shallow dive and took off with tremendous speed. Climbing at an angle of 45 degrees it disappeared within seconds in a south-westerly direction…
Another surprise came when Pedley rounded the bend of the road and came to the spot from which the object had risen. There in the lagoon was a large circular area that was clear of reeds and in which the water was rotating slowly. It had not been like that three hours earlier when he had passed the lagoon. After looking around, he got back on the tractor and left.
A few hours later, at about noon, Pedley returned to the lagoon for a second look. The scene had changed, because now the circular area was covered by a floating mass of green reeds that were distributed in a clockwise radial pattern. The circular mass of reeds was about 30 feet in diameter.
Pedley was by now excited enough about what he was seeing to go and tell Albert Pennisi, the owner of the sugar cane farm land on which the lagoon was located, and another friend. Pennesi recalled that his dog had acted strangely that morning, barking madly and heading off toward the lagoon at about 5:30 am.
Pennisi and the other man were amazed by the circular mass of reeds. Wading out to the mass, they found that they could swim under the mass of reeds and that the lagoon floor beneath it was smooth and showed no traces of roots.
Oddly, the outside edges of the mass of reeds angled down, similar to the shape of a saucer placed face down. Pennisi went and got his camera and took photographs of the mass of reeds, which was now beginning to turn brown on its top surface. George Pedley reported his experience to the Tully police that evening, and they in turn reported it to the RAAF after making a trip to the site the next day, January 20.
Within days, the media had picked up the event and the area was filled with investigators, many of whom were trying to prove theories as to the cause of the “nest” such as helicopters, big birds, crocodiles, reed-eating grubs, and whirlwinds of one sort or another. Pedley’s UFO sighting was all but overlooked in the flurry of explanations.
During the course of the investigations, as many as five other “nests”, all smaller than the original, were discovered. In some of these, the reeds were rotated in a counter-clockwise direction and a couple of them showed signs of burning in the center of the nest. Samples of the original nest were sent to Brisbane for analysis, but nothing unusual was detected. Other than being part of the “nest”, the only unusual thing about the reeds was that they turned brown in about 8 hours, whereas reeds uprooted by hand in the lagoon took three days to turn brown.
In another unusual twist, Albert Pennisi told a reporter from the Sydney, Australia newspaper The Sun that he had been dreaming about a UFO landing on his property for a week:
I’d get them almost every night. And they were beginning to worry me. I couldn’t understand them. It was always the same. This thing like a giant dish would come out of nowhere and land nearby.
And I would watch it in my dream and get real afraid before it went away. Then on Wednesday morning about 5 o’clock my dog suddenly seemed to go out of its mind. It was howling like a mad thing and raced off towards the lagoon.
What happened at Horseshoe Lagoon? There was never any evidence that there were any helicopters in the area nor any demonstrated reason for one to be over the lagoon. There was no evidence that crocodiles made the nest and analysis of the reeds from the nest showed no trace of “reed-eating grubs.” There was no known bird that would or could make such a nest in three hours.
The best explanation that the RAAF could offer was that the nest was created by a willy willy, a type of small whirlwind known to occur in the area.
Although a conclusive determination could not be made, the most probable explatation was that the sighting was of a “willy willy” or circular wind phenomenon which flattened the reeds and sucked up debris to a height of about 30 feet, thus forming what appeared to be a “flying saucer”, before moving off and dissipating.
Hissing noises are known to be associated with “willy willies” and the theory is also substantiated by the clockwise configuration of the depression.
However, such whirlwinds, except when they occur in the desert as dust devils, normally accompany thunderstorms, and although the Tully event occurred during the rainy season, January 19 was a sunny day with little or no wind. Pedley described what he saw as a blue-grey object shaped like two saucers face to face.
This description doesn’t sound like a whirling mass of swamp debris, and there was no fallen debris in the area where the dissipation would have occurred. Finally, how does the whirlwind explanation account for the fact that the water was clear when Pedley looked the first time, yet was covered by the mass of reeds when he looked again three hours later? NOTE ; The above image us CGI.
KENS NOTE: Of course the RAAF would try to debunk the encounter with an alien craft. That was their job, in the sixties, just like the american military. The goverment did not want the public to know the truth because it would cause panic and make the goverment’s look inadequate.
On a quiet day in March, 1966, seven eyewitnesses reported an unidentified flying object maneuvering over Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
Ordinarily, these reports might have been dismissed by officials as the work of cranks. But this time, the seven witnesses WERE officials — police officers and sheriff’s deputies from the two counties.
And their stories were backed up by more than 100 witnesses, including William Van Horn, a civil defense director, and dozens of students who watched the football-shaped object for four hours as it maneuvered near the University of Michigan campus, a nearby airport and a local swamp.
The March 14 sightings caused an uproar and the area went on a wild UFO chase.
Three days later on March 17 two Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies, Sgt. Neil Schneider and Deputy David Fitzpatrick saw three or four red, white and green circular objects oscillating and glowing near Milan about 4 a.m.
They called Willow Run Airport officials who could not confirm with radar.
Two more Washtenaw deputies, BuFord Bushroe and John Foster tried to follow the same type of objects in the northern part of the county on March 20. Livingston and Monroe county residents also reported seeing the objects.
The Detroit News carried the police chase story the next day along with a drawing of a quilted football shaped object with lights, dome and antennae. (It was not maize and blue with a big M on it.)
Dexter patrolman Robert Huniwell said he spotted an object in the sky at Quigley and Brand roads between 9:30 and 9:45 PM.
He said the flying object with red and green flashing lights, came close to the ground, hovered above a scout car and was joined by a second vehicle on its ascent.
Washtenaw County Sheriff Douglas Harvey ordered all available deputies to the scene. Six patrol cars, two men in each, and three detectives surrounded the area. They later chased a flying object along Island Lake Road without catching it.
Frank Mannor and his family saw the lights from their McGuiness Road farm. “I got within 500 yards of that thing and it looked pyramid-shaped. It had a light here and a light there and what looked like a porthole.
“It wasn’t like the pictures of a flying saucer and it had a coral-like surface. I’ve trapped every hole in this county and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Mannor said the vehicle, by its own lights, appeared to be the length of a car and had a hazy mist under it as it hung above the ground. Mannor’s son, a member of the Dexter High School track team, and Mannor’s wife also witnessed the object.
It rose up to the tree tops and waited awhile and fell back to the ground.
It became different colors, white on the ground, blue, then red in the trees, and then came down and changed colors again. It sounded like a ricochet of a bullet, and like a siren, a real high frequency, they said.
Police Chief Robert R. Taylor and Patrolman N.G. Lee came to the farm in response to Mrs. Mannor’s call and heard the noise.
“I thought it was an ambulance,” Lee said. The chief’s son, Robert, 16, also saw the red vehicle in the sky at about 10:30 p.m. “It was going on in the east pretty slow, and then it sped up and went west,” he said. “It was flashing red and white.”
Washtenaw County Deputy Sheriff BuFord Bushroe also observed it. “It looked like an arc. It was round. We turned around and started following it through Dexter for five miles. It was headed west and we stopped.
We lost it in the trees. Either the lights went off or it took off with a tremendous burst of speed. It was about 1,500 feet above the ground. It moved along at about 100 mph. We were doing 70 before losing it near Wylie Road.”
Carloads of college students from nearby University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University converged on the area after hearing radio reports of the sightings.
Mannor was asked if it could have been a college prank. He vigorously denied the possibility. “They couldn’t rig rigging to it. There was not anything there, There was no way in the world to get out. There were two scout cars on the hill and more at the house.”
“I know every pothole in this county,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. There’s nothing wrong with my eyes and my son has 20/20 vision. We both can’t be wrong.”
“My wife says we’ll move out of here,” he said. “She doesn’t like that. I never lock the doors. Nobody ever bothers us.”
An Adrian College professor offered the theory that northern lights may be the objects the deputies tried to chase.
On March 22 dozens of residents of Dexter and Hillsdale reported more flying objects emitting strange sounds and lights.
On March 23 a teen from Monroe said he took photos, which looked like a big black blob.
The Air Force sent in Blue Book astronomer and UFO expert Dr. J. Allen Hynek who, after a whirlwind probe that lasted two hours and 45 minutes, dismissed the sightings as “swamp gas.”
Hynek quoted a description of marsh gases by Dutch astronomer Minnaert: “The lights resemble tiny flames, sometimes seen right on the ground, sometimes merely floating above it.
“The flames go out in one place and suddenly appear in another, giving the illusion of motion. The colors are sometimes yellow, sometimes red and bluegreen.”
“Marsh gas,” Hynek said, “usually has no smell, but sounds like the small popping explosions similar to a gas burner igniting. The gas forms from decomposition of vegetation. It seems likely that as the present spring thaws came, the gases methane, hydrogen sulfide and phosphine, resulting from decomposition of organic materials, were released.”
He also said youths playing “pranks with flares” added to the excitement. He dismissed a photo taken March 17 as a time exposure of the moon and Venus.
Van Horn, a Hillsdale native who grew up on the edge of a swamp, was outraged by Hynek’s findings, asserting that he knew more about swamp gas than Hynek did. He said Hynek ignored his reports that the lights moved and that there was a convex surface between the lights.
A fake photo was taken by Air Force investigator Maj. Raymond Nyls in March 1967 in an attempt to duplicate a photo taken by brothers Grant and Dan Jaroslaw of Harrison Twp. The UFO is actually a block of wood hanging by a string from a children’s swing set.
Van Horn, a pilot with a commercial rating, objected to the treatment of what came to be known as “the Michigan affair” by the Air Force, charging that “a lot of good people are being ridiculed.”
Hynek replied that he still believed that marsh gas was the logical explanation for these sightings.
Sightings of UFOs in the area continued, but these apparent copycat incidents seemed obviously fake. A Grand Haven man who reported a UFO landing near his home was not believed. Eastern Michigan University Police Chief John E. Hayes examines a Yipsilanti UFO that turned out to be a dry cleaning bag with a plastic cross on the open bottom holding several small candles.
On March 29 more sightings were reported over Michigan. Some from Macomb and Oakland counties, others from Bad Axe, Flint and Ann Arbor. Viewers included Richard Sober of Ann Arbor, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy, and Police Chief Ford Wallace of Linden.
In Washington the government was urged to release all information on the sightings.
In April Frankfort and Marquette joined in with sightings. The Frankfort sighting was identified as a marine flare.
The next year brothers Grant and Dan Jaroslaw of Harrison Twp, took photos of objects they claimed were flying over Lake St. Clair. A lie detector test failed to back up their story.
Hynek returned to Hillsdale but stuck to his original swamp gas declaration.
There were a few more sightings in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Ypsilanti and Grand Haven. In February four Ann Arbor residents reported objects flying in formation. And in Grand Haven police confirmed the sightings.
Not much came of all the commotion. However the popularity of reporting unusual stuff in the sky to officials kept Selfridge Air Force base busy. By 1968, they were receiving two or three reports of UFO sightings per week. note: The top image is real but from another case file.
KENS NOTE: The main purpose of the Air Forces Project Blue Book was to debunk sightings. Even Allen Hynek admitted to this and he eventually started to believe. With the overwhelming evidence he had collected over the years, he became a true UFO investigator and said these things were real.
After the Victoria City fireworks display, my grandparents made the (about) 20 minute trip along Highway 185 to their home in nearby Bloomington, TX. As they were entering Bloomington, they both saw a small, egg shaped object moving about 10-15MPH around 100 feet in the air. “The whole object was a light,” it was about 5 ft tall and 2 ft wide, it made no noise, and it had no wings, strings, blades, or clear source of propulsion. Then, about a quarter mile down the road (they were still driving), they saw the second one. It had the same characteristics as the first one, traveled at the same speed, same height, and same path (along Highway 185). Finally, another quarter mile down the road they saw the third (and final) one. They stopped to get out of their truck and got a clear view of the object (even better than the previous two). With their eyes fixed on the object (and adjusted to the light), they saw that it was unblemished (no ribbed rings, scratches, tubes, landing gear), and that it was clear. “Like a clear thick plastic.” Most notably, they say that they saw a figure inside of the third object. To them, it looked like a person sitting down. They stayed for a little bit after the third one passed but they did not see another object follow. Overall they saw all three objects for a total of about 5 minutes. They saw the last one for nearly three minutes. The next day my grandfather called around the city to see if anybody had called about seeing something similar. He knows for sure that he called the Victoria Sheriff’s Department and “some nearby federal office.” However, he is unsure which federal office he called. He said he may have called the Air Force.

I have been searching for an explanation to a strange light that appeared in our bedroom over 20 years ago and have exhausted all conventional explanations. I’ll try to be as brief as possible without leaving out details. The incident was so out of the ordinary that it is burned into the memories of my husband and myself.
I woke up one night to the sound of our dog growling. A white light, roughly the diameter of a dinner plate, was moving slowly and randomly across our ceiling, much like a searchlight would. It was extremely bright, I would say self illuminating, and solid like a laser light, (more so, even) with no diffusion toward the outer edges. My first thought was headlights coming through the window, but the blinds were closed and there was no shadow of the blinds across the light. Our dog, who had always been oblivious to headlights flashing on the living room wall and loved playing flashlight tag, growled the entire time.
I watched it move like this for perhaps more than a minute, then reached beneath the covers to shake my husband’s arm (he could sleep through a bomb blast!) and he woke with a start, mumbling “What?” The second he spoke the light shot across the ceiling and down the wall, disappearing through the floor. I will note here the corner of the bed and the dresser were between the windows and the section of the wall the light went down, further discounting the source coming from outside.
“What the hell was that?” he said, now fully awake. To this day we both regret not getting out of bed and heading downstairs to investigate, but we were both so dumbstruck by what we had just witnessed.
My apologies for the length of this account, but I wanted to get all the facts in. I am grasping at straws now; I don’t know if this is UFO related, ghost related (they are the next ones I will check with) or what, but I would just like to know if others have had this same experience.
I’m not asking for an investigation, especially considering the lapse of time involved, but I would just like a simple “Yes, others have experienced this,” or “No, don’t waste our time with weird lights in your bedroom,” if you can manage it. NOTE: The above photo is real but from another sighting.
This case is under investigation by State Section Director Jack Nicholias of MUFON New Jersey.
Early on the morning of March 31, Jeno Udvardy, a 1956 Hungarian refugee, was driving home from a late work shift near Vicksburg, Michigan. When he reached the crest of a hill he saw a cluster of lights on the road ahead which he assumed was an ambulance at an accident. He slowed and approached cautiously.
When within about 10 feet of the lights, he suddenly realized that they were not on any recognizable vehicle.
Instead they were seen to be on a disc-shaped object hovering a few feet above the road and blocking his passage.
Brilliant lights from the object, some steady and some blinking, concealed some details of the object. Udvardy became frightened and tried to back away from the strange object. At that moment his car was buffeted violently as if by strong gusts of wind.
Then he saw what he first thought was another object hovering behind his car, but a quick glance ahead slowed that the object was no longer on the road ahead.
Apparently it had darted overhead and taken a new position behind him. The same pattern of lights was visible on the object.
Udvardy then realized that his motor had stalled. (It is not known whether this was due to electro-magnetic interference as reported in many cases, but he could easily have stalled the car in the excitement of the moment). He rolled down his window and looked out. For the first time he heard a low humming sound like a swarm of bees. Moments later, the UFO rose abruptly and sped off at a steep angle, disappearing in the eastern sky.
Having experienced Communist terrorism and other violence in his native country, Udvardy told the NICAP investigator, he did not scare easily. But this encounter with something unknown had shaken him. The incident probably lasted less than a minute, but, for many minutes Udvardy sat in the car regaining his composure before he was able to drive home.
At his wife’s urging he reported the experience to the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s office. He later became somewhat bitter over the ridicule his report evoked. However, he stuck to his story in the face of skepticism though he had nothing to gain from it. NOTE: The above image is CGI
At 2:10 a.m. on the morning of April 23, Ronald E. Johnson, a farmer living on Route #2 in Yorktown, a few miles west of Clarinda, Iowa, was awakened by a loud roar. On getting up and going to his window, which faced south, he saw a cigar-shaped object, approximately 60 feet in length, landing in a field within 50 feet of his house.
The object, which had apparently come out of the north, came into view as it moved over the house. The night was foggy and a light rain was falling at the time. No moon or stars were visible.
The roar of the object ceased as it landed. On the end of the object closest to the, house, Johnson saw a brilliant red light, which bathed the area in a “blood red” glow. On the farthest end, he saw two blue lights approximately eight inches in diameter, which extended above the body of the object.
The surface of the object was of a dull finish, except for an amber glow that extended partway along the bottom. The object rested on a series of from 17 to 20 long “legs.”
After landing, the object gave off a series of loud, explosive, “cracking” noises, like gunshots, at regular intervals. Johnson said the air was filled with an odor which he described as similar to ozone. He saw nothing leaving or entering the object. He watched it sitting motionless in his field for about 20 minutes and finally went back to bed.
He got up a short time later to see if it was still there, but it had either departed silently, or had turned out its lights. The explosive sounds were no longer heard.
In the morning, Johnson discovered that sometime during the night his livestock had all bolted to the far end of the pasture and appeared to be “acting up considerably.”
They would not return for feeding that morning. Examining the landing site he found a series of circular impressions six inches in diameter and spaced alternately in two rows. The distance between impressions was two and a half feet.
To the east of the landing impressions he found a second set of imprints, round on one side and square-edged on the other, and divided at the squared-off edge into three sections (see diagram). These impressions were not made by his cattle, according to the farmer.
One other peculiar detail was noticed: two power line poles appeared to have fresh depressions in the wood at regular intervals, as if it had been recently climbed. The poles were smeared with dirt. Wires rising on the poles had small, regular-spaced notches.
Johnson reported the incident to Deputy Sheriff Dick Hunt, who made an investigation. A complete report was said to have been sent to Offut Air Force base; however, Johnson was not queried by any official investigators, and if the report is among those in the official files, it was not released to the University of Colorado, who requested information on it in July, 1967.
Additional details were obtained for NICAP by member Dennis Hicks. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
When I was around 10 or 11, I spent a lot of time with my dad out in Kentucky. I remember swimming one summer night with my sister when we both saw an orange orb rise up over the horizon. It caught my attention when I heard what sounded like a hum/tv static. Shortly after, it caught my sister’s attention. The coyotes in the woods were howling like crazy- more than normal. I had several images flash into my head, most consisting of a series of symbols then an image of a human-like alien creature with slightly enlarged black eyes, pale blue skin, and striping with chromatophores that shimmered in different colors when it expressed different emotions factually. It was like it had attempted to communicate with me. We both watched the craft as it hovered over neighboring farms near ours and, when it was done hovering, it shot straight up into the sky and disappeared. Once it was gone, we decided to go inside and nearly 2 hours had passed by in what felt like minutes. Even now, 11 years later, I still get images of the symbols from time to time and the creature still shows up to me in dreams and meditations. NOTE: The above drawing was submitted by the witness.
APRIL 6, 1966 …………………….WESTALL MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA
A CANBERRA academic is investigating one of Australia’s most compelling UFO mysteries, a sighting by hundreds of people in the Melbourne suburb of Westall on April 6, 1966.
More than 200 students and staff from two schools watched as the object landed in a nearby paddock, lifted off and vanished.
Shane Ryan, an English lecturer at the University of Canberra, is interviewing dozens of witnesses for a book he hopes to publish on the 40th anniversary of the sighting.
Mr Ryan, 38, was alerted to the events in the 1980s by a housemate who was there. Unlike most UFO sightings, the Westall object had a large number of credible witnesses. It was viewed in daylight and attracted a forceful response from police and the RAAF.
“It had these rather interesting elements which indicated to me that, unlike some other so-called UFO stories, there was some substance to this,” he told The Sunday Age.
“I knew the 40th anniversary was coming up next year, so I thought it was timely to do some research on it.”
Mr Ryan has interviewed about 30 witnesses, mostly former staff and students from the Westall secondary and primary schools. He has tried obtaining police and RAAF reports, but so far with little luck. The story was covered then by Channel Nine, The Age and local newspapers.
On the UFO, everyone seems to agree, Mr Ryan says. It was a low-flying, silver/grey shining object, either of classical flying saucer shape or close to it, “a cup turned upside down on a saucer”.
The students were familiar with light aircraft because the schools were close to Moorabbin Airport. Although the UFO was of similar size, “everyone said straight away that they knew it was not a plane,” Mr Ryan said, nor a weather balloon.
The object was in view for up to 20 minutes, and many saw it descend. Most agree it landed behind pine trees at the Grange Reserve. Dozens of students ran across what was then an open paddock to the reserve to investigate, but the object had lifted off and vanished.
Other details are sketchier. The UFO appears to have left a circle of scorched grass; others say several circles were left in paddocks bordering Grange Reserve. Many witnesses, not all, report seeing aircraft, up to five, trailing the UFO. Some say it made no sound, others say it did.
Many reported that police/air force/military personnel inspected the site; some (not all) say the authorities burnt the site. The Dandenong Journal, for which the story was front-page news two weeks in a row, reported that “students and staff have been instructed to ‘talk to no-one’ about the incident.”
Nevertheless, one teacher, Andrew Greenwood, gave the paper a detailed account.
“It was silvery-grey and seemed to thicken at times,” he said. “The thickening was similar to when a disc is turned a little to show the underside.”
One of the closest witnesses was a boy whose family leased land at Grange Reserve for horses.Shaun Matthews (not a student at Westall) was on holidays and spending time on the land.
“I saw the thing come across the horizon and drop down behind the pine trees,” he told The Sunday Age this week. “I couldn’t tell you what it was. It certainly wasn’t a light aircraft or anything of the like …
“I saw the thing drop down behind the pine trees and saw it leave again. I couldn’t tell you how long it was there for, it was such a long time ago.” Mr Matthews, 51 and now living in Greenvale, said the object “went up and off very very rapidly”.
“I went over and there was a circle in the clearing. It looked like it had been cooked or boiled, not burnt as I remember,” he said. “A heap of kids from Westall primary and high school came charging through to see what had happened — ‘look at this, look at that, we saw it as well’, that sort of thing. It was a bit of a talking point for a couple of days.”
Mr Matthews said the object, about the size of “two family cars”, passed him at a distance of about “four football fields”. “It was silvery, but it had a sort-of purple hue to it, very bright, but not bright enough that you couldn’t look at it,” he said.
“I saw that it dropped down behind the trees, and I thought, ‘hello, hang on’. A minute or so later, it went straight up, just gone.”
He said police and other officials interviewed his mother. But he cannot remember them burning the landing site, as others have alleged. And he did not see any light aircraft trailing the object, as others did.
“The way this thing moved there is no way it could have been a weather balloon or a light aircraft,” he said.
“A helicopter? No way — no noise, wrong shape, and it didn’t move like it. It came out of the distance, stopped, and then just dropped.
“It didn’t just sort of cruise and then slightly descend at an angle. It just stopped, dropped, and then went straight up.”
The Victorian UFO Research Society investigated the incident. VUFORS secretary Tony Cook said Westall remained one of Australia’s major unexplained UFO cases. The top one was the case of Frederick Valentich, a 20-year-old Melbourne pilot whose light plane disappeared while flying over Bass Strait in 1978.
In the last minutes of radio communication, Valentich reported seeing a UFO hovering above his plane. He and his craft were never recovered.
“It’s pretty well documented,” Mr Cook said. “That’s probably the most important one because it involves the disappearance of a person.”
Mr Cook said the society’s stance on UFOs was that, “there are people out there seeing unusual things in the sky at times and they can’t be explained. But it’s a very big leap to go from unexplained things in the sky to extraterrestrials.” Most witnesses, including Mr Matthews, say the UFO was not an aircraft or helicopter. But Westall is only six kilometres from Moorabbin Airport, and the object was roughly headed in that direction, travelling north to south.
“It sounds to me like some sort of experimental craft, very much Earth-based,” Steve Roberts, of Australian Skeptics, said.
“It is an interesting event with lots of witnesses and what we now call a crop circle.
“Accounts are confused. Some have the object landing and taking off again, others say ‘a paddock over which the object seemed to hover’.”
As well, “if there was a whole swag of officials investigating it, there must be an official report in RAAF archives somewhere”.
But Mr Ryan said that no one at the RAAF knew of the incident. But given the history of the case — the way students and staff were told to keep quiet from the start — that was not surprising, he said.
“As I got a little bit older, I got a little more interested in the social and historical aspects of the story, how something like this could have happened and how it reflected society at the time, and how authorities responded to it,” he said.

Caught up in the war around them, American GIs stationed in South Vietnam in June 1966 rarely had reason to speculate about UFOs — at least until the little-known Nha Trang UFO incident took place.
The Nha Trang incident if thorough documentation can be obtained, could become a UFO “classic” according to one NICAP investigator familiar with the case.
The sighting allegedly occurred during one of the most active periods of the Vietnam conflict, and understandably received little publicity at the time. Now, however, with American participation in the war concluded, numerous war-related incidents are beginning to emerge. One of these involves a startling UFO sighting witnessed by possibly thousands of soldiers stationed in Vietnam at the time.
NICAP investigator Raymond Fowler conducted an initial investigation into the sighting and was able to contact an eyewitness to the event.
Nha Trang, at the time of the reported incident, was a heavily defended base in South Vietnam located along the coastline, which has now become an important area of tourism in Vietnam and that nowadays, specifically in this area, many Nha Trang hotels and guide tours are now available for tourists. But in 1966, it served as the home base for more than 40,000 troops, including 2,000 American GIs.
The base was situated in a valley, with warehouses and an airstrip to the east, a fuel storage area and hills to the west, and docks and storage facilities located to the south along the China Sea.
According to the witness, eight bulldozers were operating that night cutting roads around “Hawk Hill,” located less than one-half mile to the west of the American compound. On another part of the base, two “sky-Raider” prop-driven aircraft were warming up on the airstrip located less than a mile to the east. At the same time, a Shell Oil tanker lay anchored in the bay about a mile to the southwest.
The witness, an enlisted soldier holding the rank of Specialist 5, had gathered with an undetermined number of fellow soldiers around 8 p.m. in an open area of the base to watch an outdoor movie.
Outdoor films had become possible only recently, according to the witness, thanks to the arrival and installation of six, new, independently-operated, 100 KW diesel-powered generators. One of these generators had been installed near the compound where the soldiers were seated and was being used to supply power for the movie projector.
The film had been underway for some time, according to the witness’s account, when suddenly, at approximately 9:45 p.m., the sky to the north lit up! The GIs glanced up and saw what at first appeared to be a flare exploding above a ridge to the north.
“At first we thought it was a flare which are going off all the time and then we found that it wasn’t” recounts a letter from the witness mailed home a few days later.
“It came from the north and was moving from real slow to real fast…Some of the jet fighter pilots which were here…said it looked to be about 25,000 feet (in altitude)… then the panic broke loose. It dropped right towards us and stopped dead still about 300 to 500 feet up. It made this little valley and the mountains around look like it was the middle of the day; it lit up everything.
“Then it went up and I mean up. It went straight up and completely out of sight in about 2-3 seconds. Everybody is still talking about it.”
Had the soldier’s letter or his recent account of the incident stopped there, the case would probably not have come to the attention of either NICAP or the officials from Washington that reportedly visited the base the next day. But the letter and the witness’s account of the incident continues:
“That really shook everyone is that it stopped, or maybe it didn’t, but anyway our generator stopped and everything was black. At the Air Force Base about one half mile from here all generators stopped.
The engines on two planes that were the runway ready to take off stopped, and there wasn’t a car, truck, plane or anything that ran for about four minutes.”
In addition, the eight bulldozers working on nearby hills also ceased operating according to the witness.
“A whole plane load of big shots from Washington got here this afternoon to investigate. It’s on the radio over here. Is it at home? I swear if somebody says they saw a little green man I won’t argue with them.”
“Little green man” or not, the case could prove to be highly significant, despite the current lack of additional information.
Compounding this problem is the witness’s inability to recall anything more than the nicknames of those he was serving with at Nha Trang.
Of extreme interest to NICAP, and apparently of equal interest to the “big shots” from Washington,” was the associated EM effects reportedly caused by the strange UFO.
The fact that diesel and gasoline engines scattered throughout the base all ceased to operate at the same time and remained inoperative for more than four minutes provides added mystery to the event.
Included in the list of engines that ceased running at the time of the sighting, according to the witness, were those of the two “Sky Raiders” warming up on the nearby runway. One can only speculate what might have happened had they suffered a power loss while airborne.
NICAP is currently attempting to contact appropriate Army officials in an effort to obtain the names of other enlisted or officer personnel who might have witnessed the event. NICAP is also seeking to determine whether officials from Washington did in fact visit Nha Trang the next day to investigate the sighting. NOTE: The above photo is real but from another case file.
Hi Ken: The morning sky was clear blue so without hesitation I ventured outside into the back garden with my Nikon P900 camera in order to sky watch and see what I could capture. I was looking east and it wasn’t very long before I spotted an object that caught my interest. As I observed the object I could see that it had the appearance of a cube with rounded corners. There also seemed to be three rectangular holes within the cube itself that could have possibly been windows. What really struck me as being odd though, was the fact that the cube was casting a visible black shadow in the sky, which was very strange, but this was probably due to an effect caused by the propulsion system of this anti gravitational craft. I quickly took some photographs and watched as it shot off into the atmosphere and disappeared from view. Unfortunately I only managed to capture the cube shaped craft in one of the photographs due to the excessive speed it was travelling at. In the photograph you can see the focus point of the craft that is visible as a white dot, high above it, slightly off to the right. A focus point is a distortion in space time, a “gravity well” that the craft is able to produce anywhere outside of it’s body in certain allowable proximity’s within the generated torus field, in order to focus it’s gravitational waves towards. This is in order to propel the craft away or towards the focus point by using the gravity amplifiers that are movable in any direction inside the belly of the craft. This focus point of distortion is obviously generated by an advance collider type technology within the perimeter of the craft. This is very interesting I only wish I could get my hands on technology like this. I am really envious of the American government having off world vehicles that are not made on this earth in their possession at the S-4 test site at Papoose lake Lincoln County, Nevada. If only the American government would lift this veil of secrecy and allow all the top scientists from around the world to work full time on this unimpeded. This would allow them to back engineer these crafts properly and fully understand the technology within them, finding practical applications for all of it a lot quicker in order to elevate humanity to the next level and become a formidable force within this universe. The Photograph was taken at 11:16 AM on the 14th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All The Best John.
Five credible witnesses saw a UFO and one of its passengers on Presque Isle Park. Two women clearly saw a strange being. John Keel, respected paranormalist, investigated.
The summer of 1966 was a strange one for some Erie residents. Eight gave descriptions of the alien beings they saw. People reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky. Something was eerie in Erie, the city of the canal folk song fame.
A glowing object landed on Erie’s Presque Isle Park deserted beach during the night of July 31, 1966, a few hundred feet from a car that was bogged down in the sand with five young people in it.
The terrified witnesses, with no escape, watched. After the craft landed, they saw it send strange rays of light into the woods close by.
A tall dark figure slowly moved awkwardly toward the car, adding to their terror. It scratched the vehicle’s roof, then left.
The witnesses reported the incident to the police. During the investigation the next day, large amounts of silicon and some cone-like indentations were found in the sand where the craft had landed.
Presque Isle police vouched for the sincerity of the witnesses who were still very very scared when they reported the event. Many other Erie residents reported seeing bizarre lights or, as some would say, “UFOs,” in the sky that night. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While looking for Saturn/Jupiter in the sky, I saw something bright, which I thought was a star or planet. I took the picture and when I blew it up, it was a cylindrical mass falling from the sky. It left a trail behind which I could not see until I looked at the picture. When enlarging the picture further, it looked like a half a cylinder with a cored out middle. It was golden colored.
MUFON investigator classified this case as IFO–IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT…..SATURN
On Jan 5th 2021 1:34 AM CST a red-orange pulsating UFO emerged from the horizon tree line around Lake Powell, ascended to roughly 45 degrees above the horizon and continued east for roughly 2 1/2 minutes before disappearing in the middle of the sky. The pulsating object was not using standard aviation forward/rear navigation lights (red/green/white), and appeared “saturn-like” in shape when zoomed in with a super-zoom camera (Nikon Coolpix P1000). The weather conditions were 44 degrees Fahrenheit with 0 MPH wind. Flightaware flight tracking was checked and there was no aircraft in the vicinity. The object was recorded on both a Nest 1080p home security camera in night-vision mode, and a hand-held Nikon Coolpix P1000. Cropped and zoomed videos provided, full raw Nest cam footage available by investigator request. A single frame (@15 seconds) of Nikon Coolpix P1000 video footage is included to showcase the “saturn-like” shape of the orange object. Nikon footage is shaky due to zoom level and being hand-held without tripod.
At exactly 7:58 this evening, my dog started barking in an unusual manner outside. On our back deck at 7:59 PM I recorded 2 videos of what I perceived to be a fairly large aircraft flying very slowly, low over my house at first, then just over treetops from a 230* SW direction towards NW 316*. By the naked eye, it had three prominent white lights blinking together, alternating with a very bright red light, but in between that pattern there were other flashes on the craft and seemingly around it/beside it, unknown if this was another craft or attached to it (maybe larger than I thought). The videos, when slowed down, shows every color on the rainbow. I went inside after losing sight of it, but when my dog barked again 5 minutes later, I went back out to find it flying over my house again opposite the original direction, towards 178* S, where it went into the woods in National Forrest land- it disappeared from sight and I am unsure if it landed back there or if the mountain blocked my view. Glassy Mountain does have a landing pad on it and is in that general direction from here, unknown for sure. Its flight path was very smooth but not steady: slow drifting to the side, decelerating with several seconds of hovering multiple times, then accelerating again.
It was completely silent, during and after- no sound whatsoever. A very similar completely silent craft actually landed in the woods SW of my house, fairly close but on my neighbors property, on November 18, 2020 at 10:44 PM. Similar colors, flight characteristics. Other flashing lights are seen flying beside and around the craft at various points on different flight paths, not seen by naked eye. Dog also went crazy barking and tore after it that night, alerting me to its presence. Tried to check out that area the next day but no trespassing is strictly enforced by our friendly neighbor, so unable to reach area. Pictures above are still frames from the video. Someone talented in audiovisual effects could probably change the contrast and lighting and pick up on the actual form of the craft, but I am not that person.
I was taking my Great Dane out in the back yard, on a leash, so she could go to the bathroom. I don’t know why, but I happened to look up at the backyard of my neighbor’s house & saw a triangular shaped ‘ship’. It looked small, was white on the outside & had an ‘indentation’ that looked dark brown on the bottom. Honestly, before I knew it it was over the top of me & my Dane. We were by the back of the house. She was just sniffing around. I don’t know why I looked up again, but I did. It was bigger, the same colors & shape. It didn’t look big enough to hold a person; but somehow I knew ‘they’ were going to ‘take’ me. I know it sounds stupid, but it is true. I was so full of fear that the only thing I could think of to do was to call my mom. She is my Best Friend, I started to dial & honestly it “the ship?’ was gone, I felt relieved as if I’d just averted a terrible thing. I swear I somehow knew that ‘they’ were going to ‘take me up on their ship’ , I know it’s not as detailed, but I’ve tried not to talk about it. I’ve mentioned it to my child & husband, but I don’t bring it up to my mom as she has too many things to worry about & her health. I don’t want her to worry. I hope I’ve explained well enough. No one believes me. Maybe you know someone who knows what happened. I don’t know how, but I just knew stuff. It was too small, but I knew they were going to take me up & I was afraid my Dane as well. I am sorry that I don’t have any photos or sketches. If you want I will try to do the best I can. It was a long time ago, but I can not forget it or how scared I was. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was on my phone while sitting on my balcony. I realized it was really bright around me, so I closed my phone. When I realized the brightness was coming from above, I saw a huge, bright ship. As I stood up, the ship flipped on its side, so the dome part was facing me. It went pretty high in the sky and then began to move right. After traveling for a while, it stayed in one spot and hung there. It kept coming back every night for a few weeks, maybe a couple of months. After the first few times of seeing just one ship, I noticed on Sept 4, and there were two ships. They stay for a while. I would stay out there and watch them a few times, but I would hang in the sky for so long, way past the stars disappearing in the morning time. The video is the initial sighting that occurred.
Hi Ken: I was outside in the back garden sky watching and there really didn’t seem to be that much air traffic about, it seemed unusually quiet up there. I sat there waiting patiently for any unidentified objects to fly over the area and after about 20 minutes of scanning the sky for anything that was unusual, I finally spotted a black object that was quite far off in the distance. The black object seemed to be heading in my direction and as it got closer I could see that it was in fact saucer shaped. The saucer shaped object was now directly above the town when all of a sudden it made a turn and slowly began to climb in altitude. I immediately photographed it with my Nikon P900 camera and watched as it climbed higher and higher into the atmosphere until I lost sight of it. I was very excited I had just witnessed another alien saucer flying high above the town centre. These UFOs are so prevalent around this area of Devon and I’m really surprised that more people don’t report seeing them. The photograph was taken at 1:23 PM on the 7th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
During the week of August 10th-14th 2015 Myself, my Spouse and her brother went on a camping trip to Parsons landing, which is located on the East coast of Catalina Island (located off the coast of California) towards the north tip of the island. The campsite is literally on the beach facing east (slightly north east) looking at California’s west coast (basically looking at LA). During one night well after sunset we were all sitting around talking and just enjoying the moment, when I notice a ball of light making extreme maneuvers that defy normal aircraft capabilities. I made it aware to look at what I was watching. Only a few seconds had elapsed from the time I realized what I was looking at a UFO and telling to look at the Light. Now all three of us are watching this light maneuver around over the ocean roughly 500ft-2000ft. (the coast of California is barely visible from the coast of Catalina at its distance of 22 miles, its extremely dark out on the beach at parsons landing). The light then split into two lights which were a glowing color of whitish, yellowish gold. They then started to dance together to sort of speak. Making extremely abnormal flight paths but staying relatively close to each other. They then come back together to form a single star like color/shape (back to the original “form”), and then descended into the ocean. Then before us three could even say anything, the light ascended out of the ocean split into two star-like lights, danced around (making extreme movements up, down ,left ,right within a blink of an eye) then coming back together to form one light and then descend back into the ocean. This entire experience happened over the course of roughly 5-7 minutes in length (from the time I noticed the UFO to the time it’s last descent into the ocean). NOTE: The above UFO is real but from another case file.
On July 31 and August 1, 1966, there was a flurry of sightings in the general area of Washington and Baltimore. Prince Georges County police watched lighted objects maneuvering erratically across the sky. In Baltimore, residents of the Country Ridge housing development were awakened early in the morning of August 1 by barking dogs.
At least two families saw a hovering, egg-shaped object with flashing lights on the top and bottom. The object made a loud whirring or whining noise, according to the Baltimore News-American (8/1).
That night, physicist Vasil Uzunoglu, a consultant on micro-electronics, was driving north and east on the Capital (Washington, D.C.) Beltway about 10:55 p.m. (EDT). He had passed Andrews Air Force Base when, out of his open left window, he saw a light descend and appear to hover briefly, then move rapidly to the east.
Minutes later an oblong object “like a submarine” descended over a house to his left. This time the UFO was much closer, its apparent size as large as the house. Dr. Uzunoglu slowed his car and looked at the object, now an estimated 200 feet away, for about ten seconds.
At this point it showed details of structure: a peaked top with a red light; an apparently rounded undersurface with red lights; and a large yellow revolving light slightly off-center.
“I could see clearly the top of the body, which was a dark, non-shining material with no sharp edges,” he told NICAP. “The most striking part was the eye-like object off-center to the right, with two distinct yellow regions. . . (The lower region) was revolving, blinking or scanning. . . “
Dr. Uzunoglu turned his attention to the highway again, noting that no other cars were in sight. When he glanced back again, the object was moving south “at a very high speed and comparatively low elevation.” He said it disappeared in seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Between 12:00 and 12:15 PM, Sept. 11, 2010, I was out walking my dog in the yard when I saw this bright, blue-white light as high up in the sky as I could see.
It was falling at an incredible speed over Kahului, and seemingly landed towards Lao Needle north of the airport. It seemed like it crashed into the earth, but there was no noise.
The second it hit there was a rolling blackout for about 15 seconds. We live at the top of Haleakala and have strange sightings pretty much everyday. 3 nights ago on Sept 8th at 1:00 AM exactly, there were 3 discs floating above the gulch directly across from our house. We are the only ones with a view of this area.
They had a band of streaming orange lights left to right scanning movement – over the cattle fields. We watched them there for about half an hour. It looked like a jellyfish – a disc with lights hanging from below.
After watching for about 30 minutes, we tried to take pictures but the phone and camera batteries were all dead, and when we came inside all our clocks read different times.
On Sept 7th we were driving down old Haleakala Hwy around 5 PM, there is always a lot of air traffic over Kahului, with the airport right there; however, we spotted an unidentified floating object straight over the town of Wailuku.
It was disc-shaped and silver, the sun was reflecting off of it very brightly. It was a little bigger than an airplane, but just sitting in one place, that is how it caught my attention.
I began to look closer and it began moving to the south at a very slow speed – this is when I realized that it was definitely no aircraft that I have ever seen. Then it definitely had my attention.
It moved back and forth north to south from Lao Needle over to Lao Valley 3 times and it came back to rest over Wailuku, floating there for about another 30 seconds. Then at incredible speeds it looked like it fell from the sky, hit the ground then shot back up and into Lao Valley like lightning. It was the creepiest thing that I have ever seen. I was shaken by that experience deeply, but since then the sightings have only gotten more numerous.
The picture is from August 23, taken straight from my Blackberry phone. I’m not sure what is going on here, but it is definitely something.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I have posted to the Phenomena website a whole range of reports, interviews and official documents that I collected during my years as a UFO investigator in the UK and that I had not previously highlighted or published.
I recently received an email from a guy who had read the material on the site and he asked me what I considered to be the strangest official UFO related document that I had ever found in the British Government’s archives.
I really didn’t have to give this much thought: I knew instantly what my answer would be.
Without doubt the most unusual report (in my opinion, at least) I ever came across at the National Archive (formerly the Public Record Office) at Kew, England, surfaced in 1999.
It concerns an incident that dated from 1966 and that originated with the British Royal Air Force’s Provost and Security Services – an elite arm of the RAF that until 1998 had its headquarters at a British RAF base named Rudloe Manor, and that has for many years been the alleged central hub for classified, official UFO investigations.
In a painstakingly-detailed report, one Corporal R.A. Rickwood of the P&SS Special Investigation Section, related to his superiors the facts:
On 10th November 1966 a telephone message was received from Flight Lieutenant Williams, RAF Shawbury, reporting that a Mrs. Foulkes of [Address of the witness] Shrewsbury, had complained that his daughter had been frightened by an object in the sky whilst she had been driving along the A5 road near Great Ness at 2355 hours on 8th November 1966.
This object had emitted brilliant lights and radiation beams. On arriving home her daughter had been in a distressed condition and she had discovered marks on the car, which she considered were burn marks.
On 14th November 1966, Miss Diane Foulkes, aged 22 years, a typist employed in Shrewsbury was seen at her home in the presence of her parents. She stated that she had received a letter dated 11th November 1966 from RAF Shawbury signed by a Flight Lieutenant Penny informing her that no service aircraft had been flying in that area at the time of the incident.
She was now satisfied that the incident was in no way connected with the Royal Air Force or the Armed Forces.
She then went on to relate her experiences connected with this enquiry. There had been two similar incidents. The first occurred two years ago in November 1964, when she had been driving from Shrewsbury to her home along the A5 road.
This was at about 0200 hours as she neared the Montford Bridge over the River Severn. Approximately midway between Shrewsbury and Great Ness a brightly lit circular object appeared in the sky above her car.
She had been frightened and had accelerated along the road. The object had kept pace with her remaining at the same height until she arrived home.
She had told her mother and father who also watched the object.
She described the object as an especially bright light in the sky which remained stationary due west from their home for about half an hour. It had then rapidly diminished in size and they assumed it had accelerated away from them. No sound was heard from the object.
The light was yellow in colour and became red as it diminished.
The second incident occurred on the 8th November 1966 at 2355 hours and again whilst she was returning from Shrewsbury on the same road.
The object had again appeared at Montford Bridge but this time it was much lower in the sky and on the north side of the road.
On this occasion she could see rays of light shooting from the object which had again appeared to keep station with her car until she arrived home. At one time during the journey the object travelled near her and the rays seemed to come towards the right hand side of her car.
She felt a bump against that side as if they had struck it. At this moment she felt as if she had received an electric shock and had felt a severe pain in her neck.
The left-hand side headlight of the car also went out. This made her extremely frightened. When she got home she felt very ill and had complained to her parents.
The object again remained stationary in the sky north of her home and had not been seen by her parents. They had noticed it for a short time before going inside her home.
There had been no sign of the object on the following morning.
Miss Foulkes’ parents confirmed seeing an object in the sky on both occasions as described by their daughter and agreed with her descriptions of these.
Miss Foulkes further stated that she believed that the objects could be associated with a Mr Griffin who lived in the area and who is reputed to have made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met one of the occupants.
He is also alleged to make his contacts with them at Montford Bridge.
The local civil police had no information or reports of sightings of objects in the sky. There is no evidence to associate the incidents complained of with the Royal Air Force and the complainant Miss Foulkes is now satisfied that the incidents are unexplainable and are in no way connected with the Armed Forces.
In essence, that is the file. It is clear from examining its contents that the witness had reported some stunning experiences: “the rays of shooting light” that enveloped her car; the electric shock-like pain that surged through her neck as the vehicle was bathed in the beam of light; the loss of power from the car’s headlights (something that is reported time and again in UFO encounters); and the potentially-worrying fact that the experience had left the witness “very ill.”
Perhaps the most significant factor, however, was the reference of the Provost and Security Services to a man in the near vicinity that had reputedly “made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met the occupants.”
Prior to the 1970s, very little exposure was given to so-called alien abduction incidents; however, many of the factors present in the P&SS report lead me to believe that something very strange indeed had taken place in the Great Ness area of Shrewsbury in 1966, and that that “something” was very possibly connected with abduction-like encounters.
Oddly, despite the fact that the official file on this case was declassified more than half a decade ago -and the document at issue has been examined by a number of UFO researchers – it seems that little or no attempt has been made to resolve the case.
Perhaps now with its contents highlighted here, someone will take a fresh look at the case and attempt to resolve the question of what really happened nearly 40 years ago at Montford Bridge. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
THANKS TO Nick Redfern Phenomena US Editor in Chief
In the city of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts on the night of January 25, 1967, one of the most celebrated cases of UFO abduction began. Betty Andreasson was working in her kitchen while her seven children, mother, and father were in the living room.
Shortly after 6:30, the lights in the house briefly blinked.
Immediately thereafter, a reddish light began to beam through the kitchen window. The sudden darkness in the house set the kids nerves on edge, and Betty ran to comfort them. Her father ran into the kitchen to peer out the window, and find the source of the unusual light.
To his utter shock, he saw five odd-looking beings coming toward the house with a hopping motion!
Before he could regain his composure, he saw the beings walk right through the wooden door! What happened next would test the imagination and strength of even an open-minded, adventurous person. The entire family was suddenly put into a state of suspended animation.
One of the creatures went to Betty’s father, while one of the other four began to make telepathic communication with Betty. One of the group seemed to be a leader of sorts.
He was about five-feet tall. The other four appeared to be about a foot shorter. All of the beings had a pear-shaped head, with wide eyes, and small ears and noses.
Their mouths were only slits, and never moved, though they were able to communicate through their minds.
The beings wore a type of coverall, blue in color, with a wide belt. There also was a logo of a bird on their sleeves. The hands only had three fingers, and they wore boots. The creatures did not move as a human, but floated as they went.
Betty would later relate that, though she was frightened, she felt a sense of calm, even friendship toward the beings.
The aliens were holding Betty’s children in a frozen state of consciousness, but when Betty showed concern for them, the aliens released her 11-year-old daughter, to assure her the children were not being harmed.
Betty was taken by the aliens outside to a waiting craft which rested on the side of a sloping back yard. The craft was estimated to be about 20 feet in diameter, in the classic UFO shape.
Betty believes that after she was aboard the craft, it joined a “mother” craft, where she underwent a physical examination, and also was subjected to the effects of strange equipment.
After this, she was given a type of bizarre test, which caused her pain at first, but resulted in a kind of religious experience. Approximately four hours later, she was returned to her home by two of her captors. When she arrived, her entire family was still in a state of suspended animation.
One of the beings had stayed in her house, evidently to watch the other family members. After releasing the family from the trancelike state, the aliens left.
Betty would later state that the aliens had hypnotized her to not recall any of her experience until a designated time to be determined later.
She was able to recall only certain things at the time of her experience; the power outage, the red light through the kitchen window, and the aliens entering the house.
Before this bizarre happening, Betty had little or no knowledge of UFO folklore, and being a devoted Christian, she believed that the abduction had a religious meaning.
It would be later until she began to view the abduction as alien in nature.
Eight years later Betty answered an ad from Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was soliciting abduction experiences from the general public. Her letter was dismissed at the time, because of its unusual details, and it would be January 1977, before her story would be fully investigated.
The investigative team assigned to the Andreasson case included a solar physicist, and electronics engineer, an aerospace engineer, a telecommunications specialist, and a UFO investigator.
The service of a hypnotist, and a medical doctor trained in psychiatry were also used. Betty’s case involved twelve months of investigation.
She was given a character-reference check, two lie-detector tests, a psychiatric review, and an excruciating fourteen sessions of regressive hypnosis.
The results of this inquiry were startling.
Betty, along with her daughter, relived a detailed account of a UFO experience, agreeing on all basic aspects. The results were published in a 528 page account, which stated that Betty and her daughter were sane individuals, who sincerely believe all of the details given in their statements.
The Betty Andreasson abduction case is still unexplained today. NOTE ; The above image is CGI.
I witnessed something that I really can’t explain at Newton Road. It’s been playing on my mind for a long time now and that’s why I have decided to come forward and write about what I saw that morning. This is really out there and I wouldn’t of believed it if I hadn’t of witnessed it with my own eyes. It was about 5:30 am and I was having a smoke waiting for my lift to work when I began to watch a man as he walked along the pavement on the opposite side of the road. He was dressed in black and looked well built. There was nothing odd until he stopped abruptly when he got to the small bridge that over looks the old railway lines. It looked as though he had seen something. This is where things got weird… As I watched the man he turned and looked over the bridge and then to my surprise a ball of white light flew up right in front of the man and stopped right in front of him. The light was incredibly bright and the strange thing was that it did not cast any light on the man or the surrounding area which did not make any sense. At this point I had put out my cigarette and I had moved a bit closer to the wired fence that was in front of me so I could get a better look. The light was now even closer to the man and it was now right near his face. I watched on in astonishment as the man tried to grab at the light which caused it to move back away from him. The light seemed to glide through the air which was really strange. The man just stood there looking at the light before it glided through the air up toward the trees where it just stopped. The man then looked away from the light and looked up and down the road before he looked back at the light. The light then glided behind the trees and the man started running down the road heading in the direction of Kingsteignton. I watched as the light faded away into the trees and I stood there for a while trying to make sense of what I had just seen, but I couldn’t. Then my friend pulled up in his car to pick me up so I got in his car and we made our way to work. I said nothing about this to my friend. What I had just witnessed was unbelievable. I believe that I witnessed this event some time in the winter of 2002 at Newton Abbot Devon UK. Yours sincerely Daniel Jones. I really felt that I had to get this off my chest.

Special thanks to the witness Daniel Jones of Newton Abbot Devon.
A Pennsylvania Railroad employee and his companion fled in fear from a glowing object hovering a few feet above a creek bed near Milford, Ohio, in the early morning of February 11, 1967.
The sighting was investigated by Leonard H. Stringfield, NICAP Adviser in Cincinnati.
Michael McKee and Sharon Hildebrand were driving toward Milford when they noticed through the woods a white glowing light. Taking a railroad light from the car, they approached to investigate.
They discovered an oval object with a tube-like appendage underneath (giving a “mushroom-shape” appearance), hovering a few feet above a creek bed which dropped several- feet into a ravine.
They approached to within 100 feet of the object, which appeared to be about 30 feet in diameter.
When Mr. McKee shone his lantern on the object, it gave a metallic-appearing “mirror reflection”. Miss Hildebrand said she noticed a row of lights on the object, which disappeared when the lantern was turned off.
Confronted with the strange glowing object, the pair became frightened and fled the scene.
Stopping at the nearest phone, at a restaurant, they called Mr. Stringfield who advised them to contact the police.
Officer Charles O’Brien returned to the site with the witnesses at 3:30 a.m. He discovered “splintered tree limbs and twigs” near where the UFO had hovered.
Next day, Mr. Stringfield had an engineer friend inspect the site, and he reported that small trees and branches had been “pressed down by a heavy-weight.”
Further investigation revealed that on the previous evening and into the morning of the 11th, several residents in Madeira, Kenwood, Wyoming, and Blue Ash, had seen unusual aerial activity.
Near Kenwood about 11:45 p.m. a woman reported seeing a glowing object about 20 feet in diameter flying at a very low altitude.
A round, glowing red object at low altitude was reported in the same area by a couple at 12:15 a.m. About 1:00 a.m., residents of Blue Ash and Wyoming saw an oval red or orange object at low altitude.
In checking with the police, Mr. Stringfield discovered that Lockland Patrolman Frank Guber, sitting in his cruiser at 2:00 a.m., had watched a brilliant red light cross the sky, hover, then move off on a new course.
The reports agreed that the UFO was moving in a generally northeast direction. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At about 8:45 p.m. on February 9, 1967, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Guseman of Middletown, Delaware, were driving south on U.S. 13 toward Odessa.
They had just crossed a bridge over a canal when Mr. Guseman saw two lights near the road ahead and to their left.
The left light was green and the one on the right red. Suddenly two bright white lights came on between the colored ones. Thinking they were landing lights, Guseman said to his wife, “Look at the crazy plane trying to land!”
As the couple drew nearer, they could see the lights were stationary and attached to a large and unfamiliar object. Only the white lights were visible as they came up opposite to the object, across the highway from them.
It sat motionless just over the trees approximately 200 feet from them at an altitude of about 70 or 80 feet.
Mr. Guseman rolled down his left window and he and his wife studied the object more closely. It was disc-shaped with a kind of cupola under the main body.
Its width was estimated at about 50 feet and its height at about 20 feet at the thickest point.
Except for the top, the object was clearly visible, a dark gray silhouette against the lighter sky. The surface was smooth and the bright white lights appeared to be searchlights affixed to the front end.
The beams of these lights were wider at the ends than at the source and only the source of the closer beam was visible, the other being hidden by the body of the object.
The rather squared cupola, or “gondola” contained a horizontal row of windows which gave forth a faint soft light, steady and uninterrupted by any forms or movement.
The light was described as “yellowish” by Mr. Guseman, “pinkish” by his wife. On the bottom of this gondola, in the center, were three red lights which shone with an even intensity.
For about two minutes the couple watched the object as it hovered motionless. Several cars and trucks passed on the highway, but none slowed down or appeared to take notice.
Then suddenly the two forward beams of light began to swing upward until they were pointed at a 45-degree angle from horizontal, shining upwards and out into the night sky.
As soon as they reached this new position, the object began moving in a forward direction toward the north, and to the left of the witnesses. As it moved, the Gusemans heard a soft hum or buzz, similar to the sound of an electric motor.
The UFO proceeded in a slow, straight trajectory at an even altitude and as it changed its angle of perspective relative to the viewers’ position, it presented the same circular, disc-shape with the undercarriage and windows below.
After moving approximately two or three hundred feet to the north over the trees, the UFO seemed literally to disappear.
They assumed it had dropped down into a field beyond the tree-line, but when they drove near the field to check further they saw nothing; nor could they find any evidence on the ground where the UFO had hovered when they searched it with a flashlight.
Guseman, 29 at the time of the sighting, is president of the Delmarva Contracting Company, Middletown; his wife is a business administrator in Wilmington Memorial Hospital.
Their sighting was investigated by NICAP staff members Stuart Nixon and Isabel Davis and they were later questioned further at NICAP headquarters by Dr. James E. McDonald.
The witnesses were articulate, unemotional and cooperative in both their interviews. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
David Morris, 19, a factory worker in Kent, Ohio, was driving home to Munroe Falls from work early in the morning of March 28, 1967.
At about 2:30 AM, while driving west along Little River Road, he topped a small hill and suddenly saw an orange-glowing object ahead of him.
It was in a field to his left, on the south side of the road, and was apparently hovering several feet above the ground. He described it later as a cone-shaped object about 25 feet tall and 12 feet wide at the base, with a small sphere on top.
As Morris slowed his car down for a better look, he saw four or five small figures scurrying quickly back and forth across the road, about 50 feet ahead of him.
They appeared between three and a half and four feet tall, and they gave off the same soft orange glow similar to the object.
Morris quickly slammed on his brakes but, unable to stop in time, struck one of the beings as it crossed the road to his right.
He heard a thump at the moment of impact, and saw the being’s raised hand as it was struck. He saw no fingers on this hand.
The car traveled another ten feet before it stopped. Morris turned and looked around, his hand on the door. He saw a group of little figures standing as if clustered about something lying on the road and, suddenly frightened, he sped off.
He did not report the incident to the police because he was convinced that whatever he struck had not been human.
The next day Morris found dents in his right front bumper that had not been there before. He mentioned the story to several of his co-workers, one of whom was acquainted with a reporter for a local newspaper.
This reporter alerted NICAP, and the incident was carefully investigated by Charles E. Toner and Roy Wiley of the Pittsburgh NICAP Subcommittee on several subsequent occasions.
In addition, Carol Clapp, the reporter for the Ravenna Record-Courier, did extensive checking on the case and provided NICAP with additional details. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At the time of this story, Millman was working for the Nation Research Council of Canada. He received the facts of the case from the Department of National Defense.
The two people, who gave their report to Canadian officials, have asked to remain anonymous, for fear of ridicule. It was on June 18, 1967 that their case begins. Taking a nice, peaceful boat right down a northern Ontario lake, Mr. and Mrs. G. were visiting friends, and began their ride back to their cabin.
As they are enjoying the moonlit night, they were suddenly shocked to see a brilliant object of unknown object. This object was simply hovering about 50 feet above tree level, and approximately one-quarter of a mile away from them. Slowing their boat down, they make a turn to get a full view of this strange object.
As they sit in wonder, suddenly the object begins to pick up speed, racing straight toward them! Regaining his composure, Mr. G revs up his 75 horsepower motor, and gives it all it’s got, heading to the lake’s shore.
The distance between themselves and the object allows them just enough time to arrive on the bank. They quickly exit the boat. Looking back up into the sky, they see the object has taken back it’s original position. After a few minutes of time, Mr. and Mrs. G decide to try a return trip back down the river to their neighbors’ house.
Shortly after launching into the water, the object again makes a move to descend upon the two terrified witnesses. Again outracing the craft to the shore, the two ditch the boat, and run to another house, loudly and excitedly rousing their acquaintances.
Their friends would later state that Mr. and Mrs. G were honestly and profoundly frightened to death by what they had seen.
Now there were several more witnesses to this unusual, brilliant object..just hovering above the trees that surrounded the quiet waters of the lake. They watch the object for another 10-15 minutes until finally it races into the night to the west-northwest.
Knowing that they had seen something quiet extraordinary, they make a full report of the incident. This unusual occurrence was meticulously detailed by Canada’s National Defense team. Other details derived from a thorough questioning of the witnesses revealed several important facts.
The object, though it did not show a light of any kind, caused the trees to move below it, as it hovered. The craft was distinguishable from the moon, as both objects could be clearly detailed simultaneously. The object was a traditional oval shape with a dome on top, estimated at 25-30 feet across, and 10-15 feet tall.
Though the object rapidly streaked through the sky, no sound was heard by the witnesses, nor other guests at cabins in the vicinity. One guest did observe that at about the time of the incident, he was listening to his radio, when it suddenly went dead. Later in the evening, it was working fine again.
The investigative team discovered a number of broken, wilted limbs directly below where the object had hovered. An analysis was made in Winnipeg, and the results of that examination was that no reasonable explanation could be offered for the damage to the tree limbs.
The report also stated that the limbs showed signs of heat, and the samples contained no diseases or insect infestation. This is a classic case of an encounter of the second kind. This case was very well documented, and the object was listed as unexplained. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
The 55-year-old snap of Nasa reveals a UFO spaceship observing the Mercury probe sent during the space exploration’s formative days. This proves that the aliens are watching humankind keenly. Waring found the presence of a disc in the photos from the Mercury project that took place in December 1960. He says that it is not surprising that aliens have shown interest in watching the historic moment related to human history as the capsule did not carry any human. Hence, there were no worries that the aliens could have been seen.
The photograph shows the earth in the background while the UFO is observing the activity of the Mercury capsule. The Mercury-Redstone 1A on December 19, 1960, was observing the activities of a UFO when an Nasa staffer snapped the photographs. Only one or two photos reveal the presence of a classic disc having a wedge cut out. Project Mercury was the first ambitious US mission in which six manned space flights were also included. As a part of the mission in February 1962, a manned space flight was sent making John Glenn the first American to orbit our planet.
I’m turning to you so that maybe someone else has had a similar experience and can help me, because I feel like I’m going crazy. I live in Pearland Texas, a suburb of Houston.
A few days ago, early morning of the 12th of September, I awoke with with strange visual (what I at first thought were hallucinations or that I’d been possibly drugged. The ceiling appeared to have swirling colors of pink and a greenish blue.
I looked to my right and saw something in my bathroom. It was small, I thought maybe a squirrel or raccoon had gotten in the house. I closed the door to trap it, but upon a closer inspection, nothing was there.
I heard what I thought were voices and strange noises coming from my neighbors’ yard. From my window, it looked like my neighbors were building a very large tall bench swing, there was a red color coming from this area.
I thought that the neighbors were maybe playing with lights of some sort and that this may have been the reason for the strange colors in my bedroom. This all happened around midnight. I wanted to find out what was possibly happening next door so I went downstairs.
As I was reaching the stairs I noticed an unrecognizable symbol on the wall that seemed to be made of blue light. When I touched it, it felt warm. This light also cast a blue reflection on the white enamel paint of the bannister.
I realized that this could not have been a reflection from next door because of the lack of windows in my staircase. When I got outside, it was quiet. I asked “hello” and didn’t get an immediate response.
The air felt staticy and it felt as though if I touched anything that I’d receive a shock. When I peered through the fence I saw ten black spheres; Four on top, three below, then two and one, like an inverted triangle.
It rose slightly, then the top left sphere broke away from the others and came towards me. At first I panicked and could not move. As I looked into this sphere, it had an iridescence to it that made me feel calm when I looked at it.
I do not remember going back to my room, I just remember being there. I noticed the clock said 1:45am. I also noticed some dried crusty blood around my right nostril. The room still had those two strange colors moving all around the surfaces of the walls and ceiling.
Not understanding what was happening, I jumped into bed and buried my face in the pillows. I woke the next morning with the distinct feeling that this was real and not a dream. There were still bits of dried blood in my nostril and for a few days after, the area just to the side of my nostril still hurt.
Deep under the skin like when a pimple is coming up. Then it went away. I know this happened to me, everything inside me says it was real.
I have no way of explaining it and I have no real way of filing it away in my mind like you would with a normal experience.
If any of your readers have had anything like this happen to them, would you please let me know because this experience has made me feel so alone. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was enjoying the fact that we were having some clear weather with partly cloudy skies. This was rare for us having constant daily wildfire smoke exposure for months on end, We often get low cloud cover over the Rolling Hills Estates location. I have a top floor apartment in a 5 story complex. My line of sight to the object was not obscured. However, I had a lot of difficulty focusing on the craft when I first spotted what I thought could be a blimp. What I thought I was seeing, was a eggshell or cream colored oval like a giant Go game piece with a pewter colored dull metallic base. I left my balcony window to find my binoculars. When I returned seconds later I saw the craft was gone. The cloud cover was very thin and the craft was nowhere to be seen. Now i was very disappointed. Next thing that happened was that it showed again….slightly closer to north skies but still over the Green Hills location. Object moving very very slowly while flickering or shimmering, much like a mirage even though the hill would not have been generating so much heat that day to cause heat waves. Before I could raise my binoculars to my eyes, there was an explosion of pinpoints of light expressed much like the way you would see points of light in a planetarium…but this was broad daylight mind you. What I first saw were these pinpoints of light randomly dancing or moving randomly. I had a feeling that was I was seeing was sentient communication. I asked the question out loud “What are you guys up to?”. The randomness then changed and the dancing of light looked more like a display of spermatozoa all swimming against the skyline. I laughed to myself and thought this was a whole new meaning for “pan-spermia”. As soon as I grasped the concept of fertilization, the lights shifted to a fixed positioned grid equally distant from each other and not dancing at all. I took this to mean that they were everywhere and all over the planet. At this time I was growing somewhat weary of the brightness I was witnessing. The last thing I saw was each point of light then returning to some location in the stratosphere. The lights gave the impression of returning from where they came from after the work was done. At this time I had to sit down for a spell and thought to myself the whole experience to be very simplistic in communication but overwhelming to the senses. I was fatigued and struggling to recoup from the snow blindness I was experiencing. I returned to the balcony with my cell phone to record the skyline as i was able to barely tune in and out some of these lights. Of course I have nothing on camera to show. The sighting of lights became harder and harder to focus on until I could see nothing out of the ordinary. And the original craft sighted was gone as well. I did some searches on the web and could find no buzz on the internet about my location on the date of occurrence. I was going to set this event aside and try to forget about it until I saw Coast Guard footage of a 1966 sighting over Catalina Island. The grainy footage in slow motion showing the craft blinking in and out of view was perhaps the same thing I was seeing before the light show started. It looked exactly the same. Now I am becoming a little obsessed with 1966 and what witnesses may have reported first hand. I will try and nail down the sighting date if I have any search history left from that day.

I was in a flight home from Japan, August 20,2018. We were a few hours into the flight to Chicago O’hare airport when a flight attendant, noticeably frantic, came walking down the aisle. Pretty much everybody was asleep with windows closed except me, watching a move with window open. The flight attendant was looking at every window, almost jogging to the back of the plane, saw my window open and sternly said, “Close the Window!” And hurried down the aisle. No please, thanks, etc. just a demanding tone. It Was weird because it was pitch black outside so couldn’t see anything anyway, but baffled, I closed my window. About 5-10 minutes passed and my curiosity forced me to open the window and the sky, for miles, was lit up by these glowing spheres of light. They were red, blue, green, and yellow, suspended above, below and in the clouds spread out over miles. The lights were so bright I could see the reflection on the ocean below. We were passing the last of the group of lights and I was able to dig out my phone fast enough to be able to get a picture. Took several but only one was useable and I couldn’t get a good angle to snap anymore. The camera made the picture really dark, but the lights were very bright and intense. Had the woman not told me to close my window, I would have been able to get solid video. The lights did not move, blink, dim, shiver or anything, it’s like they were huge Christmas lights just hung in the clouds. After about 10-15 minutes the woman came walking back to the front with none of the worry she had before. I could most likely pick that woman out of a line up today. I emailed a huge YouTube channel about it (which I will include in this) the day after, but never received any help. I’ve posted several times in various places, but not a single person has helped. I can’t find any photos or stories, in two years of searching, of anything remotely close to what I saw. The one and only time I found relevant information, was a couple months after, I was laying down watching tv about strange phenomena and they showed a picture from a planes cockpit flying through clouds that showed exactly what I saw. I know it was travel channel, discovery or history channel, but can’t remember the shows title and have never come across it again despite my constant searching. So that’s the only other photo/evidence of exactly what I saw, that it is out there if I could only find it again. The first is the actual image, 2-4 are of the exact email I sent the day after with a photo of my return flight ticket, 5 is the screen capture of the photo with the exact time and date I took it.
One of the very last cases reported to Bluebook that was labeled as unidentified occurred in Meridian, Mississippi.
Philip Lanning was driving south of town, on the evening of July 10, 1967, when his car coasted to a stop and the radio faded.
Lanning got out and started to look at the car engine, when an enormous object flew over his head about 300 feet in the air. The object was silent and moving to the east. Lanning thought the object was about to crash.
Just before the object reached a group of nearby trees, it tilted upward, turned right and then accelerated at great speed straight up into the low-flying clouds.
The object was described as being ‘like a cymbal on a drum set and was a dirty metallic gray in color on the underside’. He saw no portholes or hatches and said that it appeared to the size of house.
Lanning wasn’t sure who would be interested in the report, but he felt that it should be sent to someone in the US Government, so he forwarded it to a friend in Navel Intelligence. The Air Force eventually received it and began an investigation.
They were impressed with Lanning as a witness as he was a former military officer who had received a great deal of training. After extensive research and interviews, the Air Force was forced to label this sighting as unidentified.
This was one of the very last reports in Bluebook to receive that tag. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Over 60 years before alien abduction claims became mainstream, two people were nearly abducted in Lodi, California.
Colonel H. G. Shaw, along with his friend Camille Spooner, had a close encounter with previously unknown entities, traveling with their UFO in 1896.
Shaw was in charge of putting together an exhibition to be displayed at a Fair in Fresno.
Shaw and friend were traveling by horse and carriage in route to Stockton, when their horse froze with fright.
To the two men’s shock, they saw the cause of the horse’s actions; three tall alien looking beings with small delicate hands at the end of their spindly arms stood by the road. They had no hair on their heads, yet a soft, light fuzz over their bodies. Large eyes made their small mouths and ears appear even smaller.
The two eyewitnesses would later tell authorities that the beings had a “strange” type of beauty to them.
All of the beings carried with them a bag of some kind with a hose which they often stuck in their mouths, obviously to breath with. Although there was still some daytime left, the beings also carried with them egg-shaped lamps which glowed. This glow would later illuminate a waiting spaceship.
As the men watched the aliens, the beings were communicating with each other by a type of chant, as no English words were heard by Shaw and Spooner. The men would tell authorities that the aliens made an attempt to abduct them, but that the large difference in mass between the human and alien body thwarted the effort.
Soon, the three alien beings made a move toward a nearby bridge. Using their other worldly lamps, the aliens lighted up the bridge, showing a nearby craft. The UFO was of a cigar shape, and it hovered quietly over the water.
The beings seemed to be almost lighter than air as they moved toward their craft. It seemed that the aliens would almost leave the ground as they walked on the earth.
The beings entered the hovering cigar UFO in a most unconventional way also. They sprung up from the ground and above their craft, and then floated down into the craft through an unseen entry. Soon, the object flew away.
Shaw later told investigators that, in his opinion, the craft had come from Mars, a common theory for the time. This unusual case occurred on November 25, and was reported by Jenny Randles, in “Alien Contacts and Abductions.” NOTE” The above image is CGI.
KENS NOTE: Alien entities have been around for millions of years. Our corrupt goverment has been hiding the truth for many decades. We will never get the truth from our lying politicians and this is why we have to find the evidence through research.
I was driving our VW bus going back east on the southern route. My family was asleep in the back. No traffic was on the road. I saw the UFO about a 1/4 mile away, parallel to me. It seemed to be scanning the desert with beams of light. I saw it, and noted to myself that it was probably a UFO. Instantly it was right next to me, about ten feet off of the ground, moving east parallel to me. It was silver metal in color, and had a cigar shape, but slanted down at the ends. It had a band of yellow light about three feet wide, running the entire length of the ship. Within the band of light, as it pulsated or swirled around the ship were large porthole windows that were stationary. In seconds a tall, Aryan looking being appeared in the porthole and looked at me, acknowledging my presence. Moments afterward, several small gray aliens with large eyes came to the porthole and also looked at me. I initially thought about stopping to experience them. I became frightened and decided to keep driving, because I worried about the safety of my wife and child. The ship allowed me to get away without following me further. It vanished in a fraction of a second. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A man was watching a YouTube video which was listed as being 10 minutes in duration. He sensed that something came through the basement where he was watching the video. He came to 3 hours later not knowing what had happened. There were other people in the house, but they were all upstairs. The other people in the house didn’t see anything unusual. The man said that he felt like he has been “watched and followed” for sometime which has caused him to be quite frightened. The next day the man’s next door neighbor came by and showed him a photo of a triangular object that he saw in the sky. The photo was taken during the time that the witnessed experienced his time loss.
Observed red lights through the trees coming up the river from a southerly direction heading North. My seven yr. old saw it first, and asked if it was a car. I turned and looked at the road, and he said, “No, up there”. We all turned and looked up and saw the object through the trees. Object made no sound. Object appeared to be rectangular. Would light up all red light, then totally black, light up all red, then totally black. Object came into our full view after passing trees in front of us. Object was approx. 150-200 ft. above the water, maybe more. We had a clear view of the object for at least 5 minutes. Object was observed by two adults aged 50 and 48, and 3 children aged 7 and 10. We had plenty of time to observe and rule out what we knew it wasn’t, It was no plane, propeller or jet. It was not a helicopter. There was no sound at all. Just all red to black. I would guess object was maybe 50 ft. or so, hard to say. The only way I came up with that size is by comparing it to boats I see on the river. I would guess it was maybe 200 ft. above the water, our house is on a hill above the water, so the object was very clear and only a little above us. It was about 200 yards away in the air. It went straight, came level with us and slowly turned to it’s right and went in an easterly direction and just went that way until it went out of our view. Made no sound, I cannot guess it’s speed, but way too slow for a plane. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
What did I video, in space last night, with my Nikon P1000 camera. Notice the 5 spokes within the wheel. It did not move and was stationary like a star or planet, which I thought it was. It was straight up in the night sky and was one of the brighter objects next to some stars. I have video and photos of it from around a half hour period. Was going to see if it was in the same spot last night, however there was complete cloud cover. I thought it was a star when I zoomed in on it with my Nikon P1000 camera on full zoom. It does not seem like a lens flare as it has the same position of the spokes and holes in every photo, video and zoom range. I posted it on Facebook and Twitter yesterday and no one knew what it was. The footage is unaltered straight off the camera and you can hear the crickets and my AC unit in the background, and a train in the background of the first video. Here are two separate videos. The first one I was having difficulty zooming in. Every time I zoomed in too close the object would literally start to fade away. You can see the outer band rotating clockwise if you move one frame at a time, while the inner 5 spokes stay stationary. The second video I didn’t zoom in as close and kept in frame as I slowly zoomed in.
KENS NOTE: I was able to extract the image from the video. One of the best alien orbs I have ever seen.
MARCH 16, 1967…………..MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE MONTANA
In central Montana, Thursday morning March 16 1967, the E-Flight Missile Combat Crew was below ground in the Echo-Flight Launch Control Center (LCC) or capsule. During the early morning hours, more than one report came in from security patrols and maintenance crews that they had seen UFOs.
A UFO was reported directly above one of the E-Flight Launch Facilities (LF) or silos. It turned out that at least one security policeman was so frightened by this encounter that he never again returned to security duty.
A short time later, the Deputy Crew Commander (DMCCC), a 1st Lieutenant, was briefing the Crew Commander (MCCC), a Captain, on the flight status when the alarm horn sounded. Over the next half-minute, all ten of their missiles reported a “No-Go” condition. One by one across the board, each missile had became inoperable,
From there on, as an ex-Missileer describes it: “All Hell broke loose!” Among the many calls to and from the E-Flight LCC one was to the MCCC of November-Flight which links to the equally dramatic story of what happened in another LCC that same morning.
In this case we have shutdown of strategic nuclear missiles coincident with UFO sighting over a missile silo! These were missiles lost to America’s nuclear deterrent forces.
The following section is as told by Robert Salas who was the DMCCC in N-Flight that morning. My recollection is that, while on duty as a Deputy Missile Combat Crew Commander below ground in the LCC, during the morning hours of 16 March 1967 I received a call from the Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in charge of Launch Control Center site security.
He said that he and other guards had observed unidentified flying objects in the vicinity which had over flown the LCC a few times. He could only distinguish them as ‘lights’ at that time.
I did not take this report seriously and directed him to keep observing and report back if anything more significant happened. I believed this first call to be a joke.
A few minutes later, the security NCO called again. He was now agitated and distraught saying that a UFO was hovering just outside the front gate. I directed him to secure the fenced area. As we were talking, he had to go because one of the guards had approached the UFO and had been injured.
I immediately woke my commander from his rest period and started to report the phone conversations. Immediately, our missiles began shutting down from ‘alert’ status to ‘No-Go’ status in rapid succession. None of the four or five missiles which faulted came back on line. Some signal had been sent to the missiles which caused them to go off alert status.
After reporting this incident to the Command Post, I phoned my security guard. He said that the man who had approached the UFO had not been injured seriously but was being evacuated by helicopter to the base. Once topside, I spoke directly with the security guard about the UFOs.
He added that the UFO had a red glow and appeared to be saucer shaped. He repeated that it had been immediately outside the front gate, hovering silently.
We sent a security patrol to check our LFs after the shutdown, and they reported sighting another UFO during that patrol. They also lost radio contact with our site immediately after reporting the UFO.
We were relieved by our scheduled replacement crew later that morning. The missiles had still not been brought on line by on-site maintenance teams.
Again, UFOs were sighted by security personnel at or about the time Minuteman Strategic missiles shutdown.
An in-depth investigation of the E-Flight incident was undertaken. Full scale on-site and laboratory tests at Boeing’s Seattle plant were conducted. Both declassified Strategic Missile Wing documents and interviews with Boeing engineers who conducted tests following the E-Flight Incident investigation confirm that no cause for the missile shutdowns was ever found.
The most that could be done was to reproduce the effects by directly introducing a 10 volt pulse onto a data line. One conclusion was that the only way this could be done from outside the shielded system was through an electromagnetic pulse from an unknown source.
During the events of that morning in 1967, UFOs were sighted by security personnel at the November Flight LCC and at one N-Flight LF, and by other security personnel at Echo-Flight LFs. These sightings were reported separately to the capsule crews at both LCCs at or about the same time Minuteman Strategic missiles shut down at both sites.
USAF has confirmed that all of Echo flights’ missiles shutdown within seconds of each other and that no cause for this could be found.
For many years, the Air Force has maintained that no reported UFO incident has ever affected national security. It is established fact that a large number of Air Force personnel reported sighting UFOs at the time many of our strategic missiles became unlaunchable.
The incidents described above clearly had national security implications. In one previously classified message, SAC Headquarters described the E-Flight incident as: loss of strategic alert of all ten missiles within ten seconds of each other for no apparent reason and a “…cause for grave concern…(to SAC headquarters).” (emphasis ours)
There is a great discrepancy between the United States Air Force’s public position relative to UFOs and national security, and the established facts of this case. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Night of 12/14/20 at roughly 11:30pm I went outside my home to attempt to observe activity from the Leonid Meteor Shower. A few minutes in I observed at object shimmering/pulsating to the South of my home at a high elevation. Watching the object over a 25-30 minute window I observed it moving diagonal as well as north to south over its flight path, as well as hover for durations of time. It’s movements and pulsating light were like nothing I’ve ever seen before. In way could this object be confused for conventional, military aircraft, drones or helicopters. Their was no sound from the object. I took photos of the object with and without a flash, as well as recorded two 40 second videos of the object showing it in relations to the stars in the night sky as well as discussing its movement. The unflashed photo showed an object without any common mechanics of planes, etc. ask the flashed Verizon should the auro surrounding a spherical object.
This case is under investigation by Bob Spearing, State Section Director for MUFON New Jersey.
Saw cylindrical object with thicker fore and aft sections that were larger diameter than middle section, with blackish details (which may have been shadows) on silvery metallic surface areas. Noted immediately it had no wings. No control surfaces such as tail rudder or elevator. First viewed in Northeast flying in straight line toward me at about the same height and speed as a small plane, then at closest point almost directly overhead. Sun was going down in west so object was in full light. Only saw it because I had been observing particularly interesting cloud formations of several different kinds.

In an exclusive feature for The Debrief, U.S. military and intelligence officials, as well as Pentagon emails, offer an unprecedented glimpse behind the scenes of what’s currently going on with The Pentagon’s investigation into UFOs, or as they term them, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP).
For the last two years, the Department of Defense’s newly revamped “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” (or UAPTF) has been busy briefing lawmakers, Intelligence Community stakeholders, and the highest levels of the U.S. military on encounters with what they say are mysterious airborne objects that defy conventional explanations.
Along with classified briefings, multiple senior U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter say two classified intelligence reports on UAP have been widely distributed to the U.S. Intelligence Community. Numerous sources from various government agencies told The Debrief that these reports include clear photographic evidence of UAP. The reports also explicitly state that the Task Force is considering the possibility that these unidentified objects could, as stated by one source from the U.S. Intelligence Community said, be operated by “intelligences of unknown origin.”
Significantly, a retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general and head of RAND corporation’s Space Enterprise Initiative has—for the first time—gone on record to discuss some of the most likely explanations for UAP. His responses were surprising.
BRIEFINGS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS
In June, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s FY2021 Intelligence Authorization Act contained an intriguing section titled report on “Advanced Aerial Threats.” In the inclusion, the committee gave an eye-opening official hint (in recent history) the government takes UFOs seriously by offering its support for the “efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligence.” The Intelligence Committee additionally requested an unclassified report detailing the analysis of “UAP” or “Anomalous Aerial Vehicles.”
Though already acknowledged by the Intelligence Committee, in mid-August, the Pentagon formally acknowledged they had established a task force looking into UAP. In a press announcement, the Secretary of Defense’s Office stated, “the UAPTF’s mission will be to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.” According to the release, authority for the Task Force was approved by the DoD’s chief operating officer, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist.
The summer news of the establishment of the UAPTF seemingly suggests—for the first time since the shuttering of Project Blue Book (the Air Force’s official investigations into UFOs) in 1969—that the Pentagon is now taking the subject of UFOs seriously.
However, an internal email obtained by The Debrief shows that almost one year before the DoD’s announcement, the highest levels of the U.S. military were already being briefed on UAP.
The email, obtained via Freedom of Information Act request, shows an October 16th, 2019 exchange between then Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Robert Burke, and current Vice Chief of Staff for the Air Force General Stephen “Steve” Wilson.
In the email, Adm. Burke tells Gen. Wilson, “Recommend you take the brief I just received from our Director of Naval Intelligence VADM Matt Kohler, on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).” Adm. Burke concludes the email, “SECNAV [Secretary of the Navy] will get the same brief tomorrow at 1000.”
The “SECNAV” referenced in Adm. Burke’s email was then-Secretary of the Navy, Richard V. Spencer. A little over a month after this UAP briefing, Spencer was fired by then-Secretary of Defense Mark Esper over public disagreements stemming from a series of controversies involving the court-martial of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
Speaking on background, one U.S. Defense official lamented that a lack of continuity with DoD leadership might have hindered some of the UAPTF’s work. Within the past 24 months, there have been four different Secretaries of the Navy and five additional Secretaries of Defense. Vice Admiral Matt Kohler, noted for having provided the briefings, retired after 36 years with the Navy in June of this year.
Reaching out to several active government officials and individuals who retain their government-issued security clearances, The Debrief learned that last fall was a busy time for the UAPTF. On October 21st, 2019, a briefing on UAP was conducted at the Pentagon for several Senate Armed Services Committee staffers.
Attendees at the meeting told The Debrief that they were provided information on two previous DoD-backed UFO programs: The Advanced Aerial Weapons Systems Applications Program (AAWSAP) and the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). They were also briefed on “highly sensitive categories of UFO investigations.” Only two days later on October 23rd, staffers with the Senate Select Intelligence Committee were provided the same information in a meeting on Capitol Hill.
A former private contractor for AAWSAP and AATIP, Dr. Hal Puthoff, confirmed for The Debrief he was one of a handful of persons who conducted the October briefings. “I have been invited to brief congressional staffers on the Senate Armed Services Committee on UAP matters in the last couple of years,” Puthoff said in an email, “and have done so on more than one occasion.” Dr. Puthoff described the staffers during these meetings as being “engaged,” and provided “positive responses, [and] more details always being requested.”
The Debrief reached out to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Office and DoD Executive Services Office and formally requested an interview with someone authorized to speak on the UAP briefings with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In an email, Senior Strategist and Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough responded, “To maintain operations security, which includes not disseminating information publicly that may be useful to our adversaries, DOD does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examination of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP – and that includes not discussing the UAPTF publicly, also.”
Official public affairs channels indicate the Pentagon is not interested in sharing any more information on the UAP topic. However, several current and former officials with the DoD and individuals working for multiple U.S. intelligence agencies told The Debrief that there was much more going on behind closed doors.
8:35 p.m. local. This is a very interesting close encounter and one of FUFOR’s top cases. And, this one may have a nuclear connection. A huge, gunmetal gray, football-shaped object that was rocking back and forth was first observed by five people. Then the object began moving; swinging one end toward the shore and descending. The witnesses became frightened, ran back to their car and fled. When they got home, the object was still visible from a window that faced the lake. The object moved out over the ice and continued to descend, with red and blue lights now flashing in sequence along its lower edge. At one point triangular objects darted around the parent craft, then headed east toward the Perry nuclear power plant. One witness called the Eastlake police to report a UFO, and was finally referred to the Coast Guard. Coast Guard personnel saw the object and reported that it appeared to be landing on the lake.

An extraordinary event in 1967 would practically put the small fishing village of Shag Harbor on the map. Located at the southern tip of Nova Scotia, this rural community would be host to one of the best documented UFO events of the past 40 years.
Named after the “shag,” a bird of the cormorant family, the harbor was literally left off most maps of the time, but that would be changed once and for all.
The tiny fishing community has always had its stories… stories of giant sea serpents, man-eating squid, and ghost ships. The list of local color would see one more addition to its list: a story of a visit of a mysterious flying craft of unknown origin. This craft would visit the waters of Shag Harbor, permanently stamping the village’s name in the public eye.
The first indication of this mysterious occurrence would come from local residents who noticed strange orange lights in the sky on the night of October 4, 1967. Most witnesses agreed that there were four orange lights that evening. Five teenagers watched these lights flash in sequence, and then suddenly dive in a 45 degree angle toward the water’s surface. The witnesses were surprised that the lights did not dive into the water, but seemed to float on the water, approximately one-half mile from the shore.
Witnesses at first thought they were watching a tragic airplane crash, and quickly reported as much to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which was located at Barrington Passage. Coincidently, RCMP Constable Ron Pound had already witnessed the strange lights himself as he drove down Highway 3 in route to Shag Harbor. Pound felt that he was seeing 4 lights, all attached to one flying craft. He estimated the craft to be about 60 feet long.
Constable Pound made his way to the shore to get a closer look at the phenomenal sight. He was accompanied by Police Corporal Victor Werbieki, Contable Ron O’Brien, and other local residents. Pound clearly saw a yellow light slowly moving on the water, leaving a yellowish foam in its wake. All eyes were glued on the light, as it slowly either moved too distant to be seen, or dipped into the icy waters.
Coast Guard Cutter #101 and other local boats rushed to the spot of the sighting, but by the time they arrived, the light itself was gone. However, the crewmen could still see the yellow foam, indicating that something had possibly submerged. Nothing else could be found that night, and the search was called off at 3:00 AM.
The RCMP ran a traffic check with the Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifac, and NORAD radar at Baccaro, Nova Scotia. They were told that there were no missing aircraft reported that evening, either civilian, or military.
The following day, the Rescue Coordination Center filed a report with Canadian Forces Headquarters in Ottawa. This report stated that something had hit the water in Shag Harbor, but the object was of “unknown origin.”
The HMCS Granby was ordered to the location, where divers searched the bottom of the ocean for several days, but without positive results.
Soon, the story of the mysterious crash at Shag Harbor died as quickly as it had begun. That is, until 1993. As the original story faded from papers and newscasts, several theories were put forward. One explanation was that a Russian spacecraft had crashed, which would explain the presence of a Russian submarine in the area. There was also the rumor of American involvement in the follow-up investigation, but there was no official statement from the United States.
The Shag Harbor incident would have new life breathed into it through the efforts of MUFON investigator Chris Styles. The case intrigued him so much that he decided to search for more details. Styles found the names of many of the original witnesses through newspaper clippings, and was able to interview many of them.
Styles was assisted by MUFON investigator Doug Ledger. These two men would uncover some extremely compelling evidence through their interviews. They discovered that when the divers of the Granby finished their work, the case was not over, after all.
The divers, along with other witnesses related these events: The object that dove into the waters of the harbor had soon left the Shag area, traveling underwater for about 25 miles to a place called Government Point, which was near a submarine detection base. The object was spotted on sonar there, and Naval vessels were positioned over it. After a couple of days, the military was planning a salvage operation, when a second UFO joined the first. Common belief at the time was that the second craft had arrived to render aid to the first.
At this time, the Navy decided to wait and watch. After about a week of monitoring the two UFOs, some of the vessels were called to investigate a Russian submarine which had entered Canadian waters. At this point, the two underwater craft made their move. They made their way to the Gulf of Maine, and putting distance between themselves and the chasing Navy boats, they broke the surface, and shot away into the skies.
These extraordinary events were corroborated by many witnesses, both civilian and military. Unfortunately, the reports were given “off the record.” Ex-military personnel feared the loss of their pensions, and civilian witnesses feared ridicule, and their privacy being invaded. The unusual events of Shag Harbor command an important place in the study of UFOs. There is little doubt that something “unknown” crashed into the waters of Shag Harbor on October 4, 1967.

Location of Sighting: Near Medellin, Antioquia, Colombia Date of Sighting: January 1, 2020 Time of Sighting: 11 AM Local Time –
Description: The above link is is a short article about a sighting, published in social media by a Colombian pilot. The aircraft was flying at 30,000 ft when the crew noticed an object that was not registered in their flight pattern. Some people say it was a weather balloon or some other kind of high altitude balloon. But the metallic appearance and geometry of the object is quite intriguing. The date of the sighting and the location are indicated in a Colombian news article that was not referenced in the linked one.
Note: The object in the video IS NOT A WEATHER BALLOON nor was it likely any other kind of balloon! This object was in CONTROLLED AIRSPACE AND CONSTITUTES A SAFETY ISSUE! The above photo was copied from the link listed in the report above.
OCTOBER 26, 1967………………..MOIGNE DOWNS, DORSET ENGLAND
Probably the most famous UFO sighting during the British wave of 1967 was the report by former RAF intelligence officer J. B. W. ‘Angus’ Brooks.
While walking his dogs in the early morning of 26 October at Moigne Downs in Dorset, he witnessed an object descending at phenomenal speed before abruptly levelling out at a height of approximately 250 feet, some quarter of a mile from where he was positioned.
Brooks described the object as a central circular body with a leading fuselage in the front and three separate fuselages at the rear. During the period of observation the three rear fuselages moved so that with the fourth fuselage they formed a cross shape.
Brooks reported no obvious power units or noise and despite a very strong wind, up to Force 8, the object apparently remained motionless for over twenty minutes.
During the encounter one of Angus Brooks’ dogs, an Alsatian, was very distraught and frantically pawed at him, disobeying his commands to sit.
A team of researchers from the Ministry of Defence, Dr John Dickinson of the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough, Leslie Akhurst from S4 (Air) and Alec Cassie, a psychologist, interviewed Mr Brooks and offered their explanation.
He had seen a vitreous floater, i.e. dead matter in the fluid of his eyeball, the sighting of which had become dramatic due to Brooks’ falling asleep or entering a near sleep state and dreaming.
Brooks seems to have been less than impressed with the MOD’s explanation and not least the idea that he had dozed off to sleep during a Force 8 gale with an Alsatian clawing at him. NOTE: The above image is the witness drawing.
KENS NOTE: As you can see, buy this article, debunkers offer the most stupid explanations. They always offer suggestions without proof. They have one job only and that is to debunk all UFO sightings. The Goverments of many nations are guilty of this including the United States. Drones were non existant in 1967……..
Neil Armstrong & Edwin “Buzz” AldrinAccording to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong the Aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon.
According to hitherto un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a “light” in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard.
According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA’s broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
NASA: Whats there? Mission Control calling Apollo 11…
Apollo11: These “Babies” are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD! You wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there, Lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They’re on the Moon watching us!
A certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium.
Professor: What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?
Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known there was a possibility, the fact is, we were warned off!(by the Aliens). There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city.
Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?
Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, were they big!…and menacing! No, there is no question of a space station.
Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and back again.
According to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha:
“Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the moon module. But this message was never heard by the public — because NASA censored it.”
According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside.
KENS NOTE: Personally I feel we did not go to the Moon in 1969. I think some of these photos and stories have been fabricated to add credibility that we did go to the Moon. See my web site HTTP://www.worldufophotosandnews.org and see the many photos disproving that we did go to Moon.
PHOTOS OF SOME STRANGE OBJECTS ON THE MOON NOT TAKEN BY THE ASTRONAUTS……
October 24, 1967-Location – A3072 between Okehampton and Holsworthy, Devon. Two on duty uniformed police officers, PC Clifford Waycott and PC Roger Willey had spotted a pulsating flying cross while driving between the above locations. It was seen at low altitude moving above the treetops of the surrounding countryside.
Intrigued, they began to chase the UFO, however they were never able to significantly gain on it. At times the object slowed to 50 mph and at one point came to a stop in mid air. The pursuit involved speeds of up to 90 mph and covered a distance of 14 miles.
Whenever they did gain a little ground on the object it would simply accelerate away from them. Eventually they reduced their speed fearing an accident themselves.
The closest distance they reached to the UFO was 400 yards. At one point they stopped at a farm to wake up the owner so they could gain some corroboration that they were not mistaken in their sighting.
At a later press conference PC WAYCOTT said, “The light wasn’t piercing but it was very bright. It was star-spangled – just like looking through wet glass and although we reached 90 mph it accelerated away from us.”
Before the object disappeared from view they saw a second UFO that was also cross-shaped, very bright and made no noise. Both officers were impressed by the relevant speeds of the objects as they quickly departed, especially the first one.
Enquiries at nearby RAF Chivenor proved negative. Within 48 hours numerous other witnesses began to report sightings of similar objects. A ‘fiery cross’ was witnessed above the skies of Glossop, Derbyshire by six police officers. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
One of the weirdest alien abduction accounts there is began in the early morning hours of April 6, 1974, in the remote farming town of Kitami, in Hokkaido, Japan. On this dark morning, a farmer by the name of Yoshihiro Fujiwara was sound asleep in his bed when he was pulled from his dreams by the sudden pounding of someone at his door and his dog barking and howling outside. Considering his was a fairly isolated farmstead in the middle of nowhere, it was odd indeed to get visitors at 3 in the morning, and the rather annoyed Fujiwara at first thought it was merely some kids messing around. There would have been no reason in this safe little hamlet to think it was anything else, and he trudged to the door to fling it open to a sight that would change him forevermore. And so would begin one of the most flat-out bizarre and controversial alien encounter reports that Japan has ever seen.
There standing in the chilly early morning darkness was a diminutive, 3-foot-tall being dressed in a clear one-piece suit that seemed to be made of transparent vinyl, and the thing itself was only passingly humanoid, resembling what the witness would later call a combination of “starfish and human,” with four tentacle-like appendages, a bulbous head reminiscent of an octopus clad in a blue helmet, slanted eyes, and a strange V-shaped set of nostrils, the whole of it covered with mottled brown and slimy, bumpy toad-like skin and rested on two of its stalk-like limbs and rounded nubs for feet. It was completely silent and motionless, except for its weird conical helmet had antenna jutting from it, which generated a visible electrical humming charge that ominously rippled through the air.
The startled farmer and this anomalous being stood there for several moments merely staring at each other, perhaps each as surprised as the other, before that strange frozen moment in time was shattered by a sudden movement from the creature as it flicked one of its tendrils to point up towards the sky. This was followed by a ray of blinding light that washed over everything, generating a profound heat that sent the frightened farmer reeling back into his house to slam the door shut. A quick look outside showed that the brilliant orange colored light was emanating from an illuminated disc-like craft that measured around 26 feet across and was apparently shooting off beams of orange light.
If Fujiwara thought he was safe merely gawking from his window at this outlandish sight he was wrong, as he suddenly felt his feet being pulled forward by some inexplicable force. At first he was merely dragged across the floor, much to his amazement, but then he allegedly began to hover, before finally being levitated fully off the ground to go flying out of the window and towards the inscrutable floating disc with its scintillating beams of light. He was drawn faster and faster towards the object, seemingly on a collision course, but rather than smack against its metallic side he found himself being drawn through its walls to be dumped upon the floor of the craft.
The interior of the craft was described as being bright blue, with some sort of writing on the walls that the farmer could not fathom and the whole of it all overlaid with a repulsive stink that made him feel lightheaded. It was then that two creatures identical to the one who had freaked him out at his doorstep approached him to tell him telepathically, “No danger. We promise to release you at your home.” As peaceful as this sounded, the two entities nevertheless made to grab him and forcefully hold him down, upon which Fujiwara felt the fear left him and his survival instinct take over, tearing away and dashing through an open hatchway to go careening through air to the ground below, which luckily for him was only around 10 feet down.
Fujiwara vaguely recognized that he was around 2 miles from where he had left, and went running wildly towards the house of a person he knew in the area, who let him in. It was at their house that he would realize that a full hour had passed, even though to him it seemed that it had been mere moments since he had been taken aboard the strange craft by its odd octopoid inhabitants. Although the experience had been baffling and not a little terrifying, Fujiwara was at least relieved that it was over, and he quietly went back to his home to try and find some way to get over what had just occurred. Little did he know at the time that it was not quite over just yet.
The very next evening, Fujiwara was sitting alone in his house, his thoughts no doubt wandering back to those strange tentacled dwarves and their otherworldly craft, when he was suddenly overcome with a sharp pain worming its way through his ears and fingertips. He felt himself slipping into a daze, and for some reason his hands took on a life of their own and began to scrawl strange letters onto a piece of paper of their own volition. This was all followed by a voice that reverberated through his skull, which commanded him, “When the disc lands on the mountain you will come and board by yourself,” which was accompanied by a potent vision of the area they wished him to come to, left blazing into his mind. After that the pain abruptly left, leaving Fujiwara there shaken and with bizarre hieroglyphics etched onto paper by his hand but the meanings of which he did not know.
The farmer took the voice’s command as being the nearby Nikoro Mountain, and although he was still frightened by his ordeal he felt a compulsion to go there to see what would happen. To this end, he gathered up some supplies and two companions to join him and they set out, unsure of what awaited them up on that lonely peak. Fujiwara apparently then made his way alone to the area he had seen in his vision, where there awaited that same luminous disc-shaped craft and he boarded it without a fight. Once aboard, the aliens then supposedly took him on a flight into space, flying around the moon and around the earth twice, all within about the space of an hour. When they returned from their dizzying journey the farmer then lost consciousness, after which he was apparently just left lying there on the mountainside for his friends to find.
This wasn’t even the end of it all, as Fujiwara would claim that the last trip had left him with strange telekinetic powers that allowed him to move objects and bend spoons, and he was telepathically invited on yet another excursion on April 13, 1974. This time the bizarre beings took him on a journey that went around the planet Jupiter, as well as the moon of Saturn, Titan, where one of the creatures would allegedly go out to retrieve a rock from the surface as a souvenir for him to keep.
This mysterious rock would go on to prove to be rather controversial, indeed. It was sent to scientists for analysis, but came back as just one of the many common rocks from a Kitami cave, which brought a fair amount of ridicule down on Fujiwara and his astounding tale. In the meantime, the farmer would begin to address himself as the earthly representative of the “Summon Call Space Union,” and he claimed that his telepathic powers increased exponentially, allowing him to levitate objects, predict catastrophes, and even teleport across vast distances, of which he would say:
I can teleport to a star 250 million light years away in 6 minutes. My role is delaying natural disasters such as earthquakes and eruptions.
He would also claim that he could actually travel within the earth to stop volcanic eruptions, and pull together tectonic plates to prevent earthquakes. It is all totally bizarre to say the least, but one Japanese UFO researcher named Ninichi Arai has offered evidence that there was something to this when he found that several other locals who did not know Fujiwara also reported seeing strange lights in the skies during the same time frame, and there were others who claimed to have been first hand witnesses to the farmer’s mental powers, somewhat corroborating his weird tales. Was this all the doing of entities from another world or merely the tripping of balls? Is there anything to this account or is Fujiwara a a disturbed individual and unreliable witness? It is hard to know for sure, but it is a wild ride all the same, and goes to show that alien abduction accounts can be truly surreal affairs to be sure. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Guy Tossie and Will Begay, two Indian youths, were driving south on Highway 26 just outside Ririe on November 2, 1967, when, about 9:30 p.m., there was a sudden blinding flash of light in front of their car, followed by the abrupt appearance of a small, domed UFO. The dome was transparent and in it were seen two small, strange-looking occupants.
The car was brought to a stop – Begay, driving, did not have to apply the brakes – and the object hovered about five feet above the highway immediately ahead of them. It was about eight feet wide, and flashed green and orange lights around the rim. The area was bathed in a vivid green light.
The dome opened as if hinged and one creature emerged, apparently floating to the ground. It was about three and a half feet tall, and on its back was a kind of pack that protruded above and behind its head. Its face was oval and heavily pitted and creased. Two small, round eyes and a straight, slit-like mouth completed the facial features. Large ears stood high on the hairless head.
Approaching the driver’s side of the car, the alleged being opened the door and slid behind the wheel. Horrified, the two witnesses pushed over to the right. The car began to move – whether driven by the being or “towed” by the UFO was uncertain. It was taken well out into a field of stubble wheat, and the UFO kept a fixed position a few feet in front of it.
As the car stopped, Tossie, sitting next to the door, suddenly opened it and bolted, running for the nearby farmhouse of Willard Hammon about a quarter of a mile away. He later reported being followed by a bright light – presumably carried by the second occupant.
Meanwhile, in the car, Begay cowered in the front seat in a state of near-shock while the first creature jabbered unintelligibly at him, making sounds that were high and rapid, “like a bird.” The second being, who had apparently given up chasing Tossie, returned to the car. The first then got out, and the two beings “rose up and into the UFO,” which then ascended in a zigzag path.
Meanwhile, at the home of Willard Hammon, Tossie could scarcely make himself understood by the astounded farmer and his family. After having calmed the Indian down, they accompanied him back to the field, where they found the car. Begay was sitting nearly speechless with fright, his eyes tightly closed.
The engine was running and the lights were still on – about 15 minutes had elapsed from the moment the young men had seen the flash. Hammon listened to their story and then followed the frightened youths home in his car.
Perplexed, he later stopped in a local bar and grill to see if he could learn anything more. While there, a county deputy sheriff stopped in and Hammon told him the story.
Later, both witnesses also came by and voluntarily told the deputy sheriff, in their own words, what had happened. State Police were summoned and an investigation was begun. It was discovered that a number of local farmers had reported that their cattle had bolted during the evening for unknown reasons. Others claimed to have seen lights in the area.
The report was investigated for NICAP by C.R. Ricks, of Idaho Falls. During his investigation, he learned of a man who claimed that, on the same night, he had a similar encounter. Ricks eventually tracked this man down and confirmed the report, although the witness was emphatic about not revealing his name, and was reluctant about discussing the details of his encounter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
It all began in 1937-1938, in the mountains of Baian-Kara-Ula, the remote, uninviting slopes located on the border that divides China and Tibet. An archaeological expedition, led by the highly respected Chi Pu Tei, discovered a number of unique cave burial sites. What he and his team found in these previously unknown caves would soon be considered as something highly unusual. For many it would represent one of the greatest discoveries of the century, and change everything they perceived about their distant past and their origins as a people. Those who believed in the Genesis of the Bible only saw the so-called “scientific evidence” as possible proof of another creation of God intruding into Mankind’s domain. By faith, this domain and any other living, thinking beings came from the one God worshiped by Christian and Jew alike.
Chi Pu Tei, a professor of archaeology at Beijing University, directed the archaeological survey of a series of interlinking caves. In a report he noted that the “caves” may have been artificially carved, and were more like a complex system of tunnels and underground storerooms. The walls were squared and glazed, as if cut into the mountain with a source of extreme heat. Inside the caves were several ancient, but neatly arranged burial sites, and in them the skeletal remains of a people; a strange people. The skeletons, measuring a little more than four feet tall, were found “frail and spindly” with “disproportionately large” skulls. At first it was suggested that these might be the remains of an unknown species of mountain gorilla. Fellow researchers initially ridiculed Tei’s published findings. The concept of gorillas burying their young was preposterous, but that left one important question to ponder: “What kind of human beings could these people have been?” “Were they human at all?”
More discoveries made deeper in the connectiing caves eliminated the possibility that apes had lived there. On the walls carved pictograms of the heavens were found. The Earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars were there, and all were connected by pea-sized dots. It was obvious that the pictures were meant to be a map or chart of some kind, and that they were created by intelligent beings.
The team then made what was called “the most incredible discovery of all.” Half buried in the dirt floor of each cave they found unusual disks, originally referred to as “odd stone disks” and described as “obviously fashioned by the hand of an intelligent creature.” These disks were approximately nine inches in diameter and three-quarters of an inch thick. In the exact center was a perfectly round 3/4 inch hole, and etched into its face was a fine groove spiraling out from the center to the rim, making the disk look like some kind of “primitive phonograph record.”
One of the best preserved disks was dated to between 10,000 and 12,000 years BC old, older by far than even the oldest estimates of the age of the great pyramids of Egypt. This was incredible news, but what was to come would be even more remarkable. A final total of 716 such plates were found, and each held its own mystery. The grooves, upon closer inspection, were not grooves at all, but a continuous line of an unknown writing!
Many experts tried to translate the hieroglyphs in the 20 years the disc lay in Peking. They all failed. It was not until another professor, Dr. Tsum Um Nui, broke the code and started to decipher the ‘speaking grooves’ that the full implications of the disc were realized. Realized, that is, only by a select few. The outside world remained in ignorance. For the professor’s conclusions on the meaning of the disc were so shattering that they were officially suppressed. The stone disks told an astonishing story of a ‘space probe’ by the inhabitants of another planet which came to crash in the Bayan-Kara-Ula mountain range. The strange, spiral script told how the peaceful intentions of the ‘aliens’ had been misunderstood, and how many of them were hunted down and killed by members of the Ham tribe, who lived in the neighboring caves.
The men had huge, bulging heads and puny bodies and were so ugly and repellent that they were hunted down by local tribesmen on horseback. Strangely, the description of the ‘invaders’ tallied with the skeletons originally discovered in the caves by Professor Chi Pu Tei.
As incredible as the Chinese disk story may be, there is more! On February 26, 1967, the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner ran an article about the Dropas. Part of it follows “Riddle of Asian Stone Discs from Outer Space”
Russian archaeologists are puzzling over a remarkable collection of stone discs, thousands of years old, found in the mountains bordering China and Tibet. So hard is it to explain them in terms of earthly experience that the archaeologists do not rule out the possibility that the discs may have come from outer space. A total of 716 discs, like Stone Age gramophone records have been picked up in recent years by men exploring caves in the Bayan-Kara- Ula mountain range, reports the Soviet Union’s new English-language magazine, Sputnik.
Each disc has a central hole and irregular grooves spiraling out to the edge, but the report says (quite seriously) that the groves are not sound tracks. It is thought that they are some form of ancient writing, but scientists have so far failed to decipher them.Chinese archaeologists estimate that the discs are about 12,000 years old, but have made no headway at all in trying to explain their purpose or how they came to be in the caves.The Russians, who have examined some of the discs in a Moscow laboratory, claim to have made two important discoveries. One is that the discs contain certain traces of metal; particularly cobalt. Secondly, when placed on a special turntable they hummed in an unusual rhythm like an electrical charge was passing through them.
The Russian Zaitsev, who has spent 30 years collecting evidence that intelligent beings from outer space have had contact with the earth, believes that the discs may give substance to ancient Chinese legends of small, gaunt, yellow-faced men who came down from the clouds many centuries ago …
Drawings on the cave walls portrayed beings with round helmets, and drawings of the sun, moon and stars were shown with interconnecting rows of dots. The interconnecting dots could possibly portray the routes traveled by the ancestors of the beings in the graves or might have been drawn to show the outerspace origin of the ones who perished there in the cave. In 1968 the russian scientist W. Saitsew published a paper which raised a lot of interest in the subject of nonterrestrians visiting earth in the past. Some of the information presented in his paper were based on the work which Professor Tsum Um Nui had done in 1962.
For several years, nothing was heard of the disks. Then, in 1974, an Austrian engineer named Ernst Wegener came upon two of the disks in the Banpo Museum in Xian. The museum director could tell him nothing about the disks, which had begun to deteriorate, but she allowed him to touch one of them and to photograph them. He did so, but he had only a Polaroid camera with him. These photos are the ones that we see often reprinted today. In 1994, when Hartwig Hausdorf was in China, he asked the current director of the Banpo Museum about the disks and was told that they had disappeared.
In 1995 China released the following news report::
“In the province of Sichuan, which lies on the eastern border of the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains, 120 people of a previously ethnologically unclassified tribe have been discovered. The most important aspect of this new tribe is the size of its people: No taller than 3 ft. 10 in., the smallest adult measuring only 2 ft. 1 in! This discovery might be the first hard evidence on the existance of the Dropa/Dzopa – a people whose predecessors are said to have come from the stars.”
Today, the isolated area between Tibet and China is inhabited by two tribes of people who, in fact, call themselves the Dropa and the Han. Once enemies, these two tribes now co-exist peacefully. Anthropologists have been unable to categorize either tribe into any other known race; they are neither Chinese nor Tibetan. Both tribes are of pygmy stature, adults measuring between 3-foot-6 and 4-foot-7 with an average height of 4-foot-2, and body weights of 38 to 52 pounds.
They are yellow-skinned with thin bodies and disproportionately large heads, corresponding to the skeletal remains found in the caves in 1938. They have sparse hair on their bodies and have large eyes that are not Asian in aspect, but have pale blue irises. The Dropa people and their talking stone disks remain as mysterious today as they did in the late 1930s. Many researcher feel that the Dropa stone disks are definitive proof of an alien race that “came from the stars.”
In Ashland, Nebraska, on December 3, 1967, Herbert Schirmer, a 22 years young patrolman, was making his usual rounds. He had checked the Ashland Sales Barn, and several gas stations along Highway 6 when he noticed what he thought were red lights on top of a large truck. He had just passed through the intersection of Highways 6 and 63 at about 2:00 AM.
He drove the short distance down 63 and stopped with his headlights shining on the object. According to Schirmer, the object was definitely not a truck. The red lights that he had seen were blinking through the oval portholes of a metallic, oval-shaped object that was hovering at a height of about eight feet above the road’s surface.
The object appeared to have a polished, aluminum surface and had a sort of walk around it. It had a structure underneath, like a landing gear.
As he watched, the object rose into the air with flames coming from underneath. It passed almost directly over Schirmer’s patrol car, then quickly shot out of sight.
Schirmer returned to the police station, noting that it was now 3:00 AM., which surprised him because he felt that only ten minutes had passed. At the station, he made this entry into his logbook:
“Saw a flying saucer at the junction of highways 6 and 63. Believe it or not!”
Afterward, Schirmer developed a red welt on his neck, a headache, and he began to feel ill. Word of Schirmer’s sighting was related to the Condon Commission at the University of Colorado, which investigated UFO reports.
Schirmer was asked to come to Boulder, Colorado. At Boulder, on February 13, 1968, he was hypnotized by psychologist Dr. Leo Sprinkle of the University of Wyoming.
Under hypnosis, Schirmer recalled that, after he stopped his car near the object, the engine died and his radio went silent. A white object emerged from the craft and seemed to communicate mentally with him, preventing him from drawing his gun as he was want to do.
After the hypnotic session had ended, Schirmer was able to recall even more details about the encounter. The beings were friendly, they drew energy from electrical power lines, and they had a base on Venus.
The Condon Committee concluded that: “Evaluation of psychological assessment tests, the lack of any evidence, and interviews with the patrolman, left project staff with no confidence that the trooper’s reported UFO experience was physically real.”
Psychologist Dr. Sprinkle, however, felt that Schirmer “believed in the reality of the events he described.”
Returning to Ashland, Schirmer was appointed Ashland’s Police Chief when Chief Wlaskin resigned. However, he resigned after two months, unable to concentrate on the job due to his UFO experience.
According to Schirmer, he was ridiculed by some of the townspeople, his car was dynamited, andhis wife left him.
Further regression hypnosis sessions were conducted on June 8, 1968, by hypnotist Loring G. Williams and the results of those sessions were reported in two books: “Gods, Demons, and Space Chariots” and “Gods and Devils from Outer Space” by Eric Norman.
One odd fact that was brought out was that the aliens wore uniforms with an emblem of a winged serpent on the left breast, similar to the winged serpents that have appeared in mythology around the world. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: This is my account of what happened to me on the 13th of October 2020 at Dawlish Devon England. The weather was very bleak that day and there wasn’t many people about. I had just walked half way up the cliff when I stopped to take some photographs of the surrounding area. I then spotted something moving out of the corner of my eye so I immediately turned towards it to see what it could be, only to be shocked by what I saw. There was a translucent humanoid figure that was running towards me and I could only see the silhouette of the figure it was about 5.9 ft. tall and was of athletic build, there were no other discernible features. It was moving very fast and it seemed like the figure was trying to grab me because it had it’s arms stretched out as it was heading closer towards me. I shouted hey look… to my friends who were below me on a lower path. I then raised up my camera to take a photograph of the translucent figure which caused the figure to react and turn and run back along the path, over to an iron railing which it then climbed over and then jumped up into a tree where it just seemed to disappear.
I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed… I was really spooked by it so I went running along the path back down to my friends. I told them what had just happened and they knew that I was telling the truth so we didn’t hang around we left the area immediately. It left me wondering what would’ve happened if the figure had succeeded in grabbing me, would I have been missing and been another statistic. The next day after this occurrence I witnessed and photographed a military helicopter, that kept circling the same area where this incident had happened and I don’t think it was a coincidence.
The reason why the governments around the world are covering this up is that the ones who are snatching people are dimensional in nature and are often wrongly referred to as space aliens which they are not. please check out the attached photographs. I only wish I could of captured the translucent humanoid figure in some photographs… but it just move to fast to capture. I previously sent an email to David Paulides and all he said was neat story. This is a true and accurate account of what happened… Any idea what it could’ve been Ken? All the best John. NOTE: The top image is CGI.
While watching the Jan 19, 2017 CTV news covering President Trump prior to taking oath of office. You can clearly see a UFO is visible for 3 seconds in the newscast at 21:41 mark. I tried to report this to MUFON the next day, but had difficulty getting a copy of this video and to post. Today while browsing my laptop, I found the video I had forgot about and decided I would try to complete the report again.
KENS NOTE: Apparently MUFON feels it not worth investigating and may classify the case as ” information only”. Ignoring a possible ”smoking gun video” is a disgrace.
OCTOBER 20, 2010 …….LOVER’S POINT, MONTEREY CALIFORNIA
Time of Sighting: 5 PM PDT Description: While looking at the ocean wife saw what appeared to be a school of fish disturbing otherwise calm water. The water suddenly calmed again and beams of light/energy emerged from water at a 50 degree angle. At the top of beams, separated by a small space was a ring. Outlines were seen with bright sea foam blue color and transparent in the middle of the ring. The marine layer/fog glowed tangerine orange around ring. Simultaneously the ring shot off to the north at incredible speed and beams retracted back into water. Just before seeing this she had been in the grocery store where they experienced a power brown out. There was also a brown out at our home. TV and internet went off, but lamps and overhead light could be turned on and off, but came on very dim. this lasted about an hour. My wife came home while the brown out was still happening and was very relieved to see it happening at home also. She experienced bad headaches and nausea and some other health problems for at least a week afterward. This happened in Monterey Bay in California where there are several military and government installations such as naval post graduate school, defense language institute, Monterey Institute of International Studies and the Panetta Center( which is owned by CIA director Leon Panetta). There is also a very deep ocean canyon that comes very close in. Right off shore the ocean is up to a mile deep. The ring was the size of two football fields. NOTE: The above image is real but from another sighting in Virginia.
I was out on my back porch again, and spotted the pulsating orb in the Eastern sky. It was 10:54pm. It’s movements were similar to the other two reports I’ve filed. The light pulsate, the object on zoom is clearly spinning. It hovers, makes sharp directional changes. It disappears for seconds, then reappears, sometimes in a different position. When you stare at it the object appears to be reflecting like a prism. Not separate colored lights but glinting the rainbow of colors. The green mist, aura, or shroud is visible when you fixate on it.
My brother in law also witnessed this sighting and kept saying he saw green, in front of the craft. I am convinced I’m seeing it in my minds eye, but that is how he described it to me. We watched it for almost 45 minutes and went inside. We were cold. I looked a short time later and it was gone. It was about 1215pm when I checked to see if it was still there, and it wasn’t. Side note: in one of the pictures I believe the first one….. when you zoom in on it it appears there is a domed top that is translucent, possibly a window.
A completely baffling case involving nine witnesses took place on April 22, 1966, in Beverly, Mass. This dramatic close encounter is regarded as being among the most persuasive arguments for the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and it is almost certainly the most solidly unidentifiable report from Massachusetts in the sixties.
The events of that evening began to unfold shortly after 9:00 p.m.. Nancy Modugno, age 11, was laying in bed when she noticed a bright light blinking through her window. She looked out and saw, only forty feet away, an amazing object about the size of an automobile, brightly lit with flashing blue, green, red and white lights.
The football-shaped craft made a whizzing, ricocheting sound as it moved over the neighborhood at a very low altitude, just clearing the tops of the houses. As she watched, the thing descended and could be seen behind trees, apparently landing in a large field behind Beverly High School.
Terrified, the astonished girl ran down the stairs and tried to tell her father about what she had seen. He tried to calm her down and went about adjusting the television set, which had mysteriously just lost its picture. Nancy’s mother, Claire, was visiting two friends, Barbara Smith and Brenda Maria, in an adjoining apartment at the time. Nancy’s father ordered her back to bed, but she became hysterical and refused to leave.
At this point, Barbara and Brenda walked in to order a pizza. Seeing Nancy in a fit, the two women attempted to ease her fears and calm her down. They could see the flashing lights in the field, and told Nancy that they would walk over there to prove that it was just a plane.
Barbara and Brenda picked up Claire Modugno and walked down a hill to the field. The three women looked up and saw something they could not have anticipated. There were three objects maneuvering in the sky, halting and circling as if they were playing tag. They were oval-shaped, with bright flashing lights.
Two were distant, but one was much closer, apparently right over the school.
The women crossed the field to get a better look. They could see flashing lights on the edge of the craft changing colors from red to green and blue. Brenda waved her arms at the object and it immediately stopped circling and moved across the field towards the women. They were horrified. In her statement, Barbara said:
“It started to come towards us… I started to run. Brenda called, ‘Look up! It is directly over us!’ I looked up and saw a round object… like the bottom of a plate. It was solid, grayish white… I felt this thing was going to come down on top of me. It was like a giant mushroom.”
Out of sheer terror, Barbara and Claire turned and ran up the hill. Brenda was all alone in the field, with the thing only 20 feet above her head. She stated:
“The object appeared larger and larger as it came closer. The lights appeared to be all around and turning. The colors were very bright. When overhead, all I could see was a blurry atmosphere and brightly lit-up lights flashing slowly around… I thought it might crash on my head!”
The others called to her, then she too turned and fled. One of the witnesses was so petrified by the encounter that she literally wet her pants. While the women ran back to the apartments, the object smoothly moved over the school building. They got on the telephone to alert their neighbors to the spectacle unfolding outside. One woman was already in her yard, watching the flying saucers. And one man, upon looking outside and seeing the discs, called the police.
The police arrived to find a small crowd of people standing outside watching the closest object moving up and down above the school. Jokingly, Officers Bossie and Mahan asked the group, “Where’s the airplane?” When the witnesses pointed to the thing, then at high altitude and looking like a star, the officers laughed.
Then, suddenly, the disc turned bright red and dropped to a position directly over the school building. At this point, the officers became visibly shaken. Mahan stated, “I observed what seem to be a large plate hovering over the school.
It had three lights – red, green, and blue – but no noise… This object hovered… The lights were flashing…” Bossie said, “It hovered and then began gliding. Some of the people got on the ground and were real scared!”
They jumped back into the cruiser and drove toward the object, down into the schoolyard. They could see clearly that it was not an airplane or helicopter and that it was shaped like a half dollar, with three lights, red, green & blue, in indentations at the rear of the disc – similar to back-up lights.
Just as the policemen got out of the cruiser, the disc made a couple of passes over the school and began to move slowly away. It picked up speed and was last seen as it disappeared behind buildings. By this time, the two other UFOs had also disappeared, though nobody had seen them leave. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Date of Sighting: June 20, 1987 Time of Sighting: 12:15 PM Local Time Date Reported: April 3, 2006 Duration of Sighting: Unknown Location of Sighting: Cedar Point, Ontario, Canada (Southern Ontario) Latitude: 44.8 Degrees North Longitude: 80.18 Degrees West Number of Witnesses: One Weather: Clear Skies.
Description (In Witness’s Own Words): The sighting occurred near Cedar Point, Ontario, Canada. I was flying my Citabria airplane at 3500 ft. ASL. The dull silver saucer shaped UFO was first sited over Christian Island as I was banking my aircraft to the right on a level turn. I opened my left side window to watch as the UFO passed approximately 500 ft. underneath my plane. I then banked the plane to the left so that I would not lose sight of it. The UFO continued on a straight and level path, and although I was going 110 m.p,h. the UFO’s speed was such that there was no way I could catch up to it. If I had to approximate it’s speed, I would guess at 400-600 m.p.h. As for the size of the UFO, I can’t really say, since there was nothing that I could compare it to. If I had to guess, I would say about 30 to 50 feet in diameter. It happened so quickly, but I did get a very good look at it. There were no windows or any markings on the UFO. The color was a dull silver, almost a grey color. I usually always carry a camera in my side pouch, but this time, it was in a bag behind the rear passenger seat. If I had a passenger with me at that time, I would have been able to get a very good picture with my 35mm camera! Now when I go flying, I always make sure that I have at least two cameras with me at all times.
Addition Information About Airplane Pilot Was Flying: The aircraft was manufactured by Champion Aircraft CO. in the USA. The model is a Citabria 7ECA.
Investigator’s Notes: This is an example of a credible witness reporting an incredible sighting. The witness did not report this sighting previously because he was afraid of ridicule. He got a good look at the craft as it approached close to his aircraft. The sighting occurred near the middle of a bright sunny day. Not much more to say: Unidentified!
A report that contains some striking similarities to Mrs. Moreland’s story of more than eight years before was investigated by C. Reed Ricks, who sent NICAP the details. On the night of December 8, 1967, Marilyn Wilding, age 15, of Idaho Falls, went out on her front step to look for a friend coming by to pick her up.
It was about 7:40 p.m. The evening was dark and overcast, cold, with snow on the ground. Miss Wilding’s attention was attracted to a light source reflecting on the snow and glancing upward she saw a large light above, partially obscured by the roof of her house.
Stepping out into the yard, she saw a large, brightly lighted object hovering not far above the end of her home. It was so bright that she was unable to perceive any other color than white. The object was circular in shape, “about as big as a car.”
She told the NICAP investigator that it was close enough for some one to have thrown a rock at it and hit it. As she stood looking, the object tipped and rotated partly so that she was able to see that it had a domed top.
In the dome, which was transparent, she could make out the indistinct outlines of two figures, but she was unable to make out any details because of the glare.
She ran into her house and called for her younger sister to come and look, but the youngster was barefoot and did not come out. Miss Wilding then ran back outside in time to see the object begin to rotate, in a clockwise direction as seen from below.
It maintained its tilted attitude while rotating, and therefore gave the appearance of wobbling. With this motion, it began moving away toward the north. As it receded into the distance, the light dimmed and turned orange in color.
The UFO’s departure was observed from inside the house by Miss Wilding’s younger brothers and sister, who had been alerted by the witness. (Mr. and Mrs. Wilding were not at home at the time of the incident occurred.) In her written report, Miss Wilding also gave the names of the Schuldt family, neighbors, as witnesses.
At its closest, the object was no more than 100 yards away, and from 50 to 100 feet above the ground. The incident lasted for approximately three minutes. Besides containing a number of details similar to those described by Mrs. Moreland, Miss Wilding’s sighting may also be compared with another incident that occurred at Ririe, Idaho, a little more than a month earlier.
The six preceding occupant reports have one thing in common: the reported beings in each case were seen in or on the associated UFO. Also, five of the six reports took place during the decade of the 1950s.
This is not to say that all occupant reports during that period described beings seen in or on the object; to the contrary, there are many reports on file in which the alleged occupants were reported outside of the UFO; and in some cases, strange non-human entities have been reported when no UFO could be immediately associated with their presence.
The following cases are examples of occupant reports in which the alleged beings were seen outside of the UFOs. All of them have occurred since 1964. Several of these cases contain features that are unique and bizarre: their reported high degree of strangeness places special demands upon our credulity.
However, they cannot be eliminated out of hand simply because they do not conform to what we would prefer to expect of “spacemen” reports. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I am captain of foreign going vessels since 1970. In 1968 I was second officer on Panamax bulk carrier Swiss flag named GRICHUNA. We departed fully loaded with coal from Norfolk or Charleston, bound for Japan through Panama channel.
I was on the night watch from 0000 – 0400, and we were sailing south off the coast of Florida. The sea was calm and our speed was 15-16 knots. The weather was fine and the visibility very good.
I was on the command bridge outside on the port side and looking to the lights of Palm Beach, at a distance just abeam, and then I saw the lights under the surface some 30-40 meters away, just abeam in the depth of some 10-15 meters.
It looked like a big airplane without wings, tail with all the windows lit on it. There were some 10-15 windows, but I did not count them.
The object was moving with us but some 30 degrees crossing our course. The speed was about double of ours and it went under the bow of our ship and I could see just a gloom when it came on the other side in front of port bow. Our ship was 250 meters long and her draft was some 9 meters.
There was AB seaman with me on the bridge, but standing by on the wheel even if we were on automatic, and I did not call him outside earlier but asked him later if he could see something in the sea left of the port bow. He confirmed he see a gloom under water. Now what was it?
I excluded a submarine, as they have no windows – they would not risk to pass so close under our ship and finally some 30 knots was too great of speed for a submarine in 1968.
A sight seeing submarine has windows, but what would she be doing in plain night on open seas (10 NM off coast) and again risking collision and too big speed and even the size (about 40 meters) for her.
Is there someone who could explain this sighting? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
FEBURARY 28, 1968 …….FLIGHT NEAR JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA AREA
At 7:45 p.m., February 28, the three-man crew of an Eastern Air Lines ferry flight from St. Louis to Miami saw a string of unknown lights that caused the pilot “to take evasive action.”
Traveling at 18,000 feet, Captain Robert F. Reilman, Flight Officer A. J. Farmer and Safety Officer Rick Morrison first noticed “a red flashing light” at their altitude.
In his report to NICAP, the pilot said the light was at their 11:30 position about halfway between Jacksonville and Orlando, Florida.
“Who’s this at our 11:30 position?” Capt. Reilman asked a nearby control center.
The center replied that they had been in communication with a plane 15 miles away.
“Well, this guy isn’t 15 miles away,” the pilot replied. “He’s at 11:30, has one flashing red light and three – now four red lights strung out – one red light turned to green.”
At this point, Capt. Reilman “prepared to take evasive action.” The center radioed back that they had spotted no targets on their radar scope.
“Come on,” Reilman responded, “he’s going right by us at our 9:00 position.”
The center still replied that they had no targets and that no balloons were in the vicinity.
“I dropped the subject and proceeded to Miami,” the Captain concluded.
Pacings of ground vehicles have often badly frightened the witnesses, showing that official debunking and denials have not abated fears of UFOs. If anything, they have increased such fears, since many citizens believe the facts are kept from them. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
NOVEMBER 15, 1966 ……..POINT PLEASANT WEST VIRGINIA
The very first sighting of the Mothman was supposedly on the night of November 15, 1966, near the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Two married couples, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette were driving past a closed down World War II ammunitions plant that was commonly called the “TNT AREA” by locals.
They were only about six miles north of the city proper, in an area set aside by the city as a wildlife preserve for birds, called the McClintic Wildlife Preserve. The area had many underground tunnels and caves; an easy hiding or nesting place.
The first thing that caught their attention was the glow of two large red eyes peering through the darkness. They could soon make out the shape of a creature six to seven foot tall, with the basic shape of a human with what appeared to be wings folded around his sides and back.
The glowing red eyes were consistent with the description of another mysterious creature, oddly enough, in Flatwoods, West Virginia. The being is commonly referred to as the Flatwoods monster. The Flatwoods event occurred in September of 1952.
A bright, burning UFO that was seen crashing to the ground heralded the subsequent sighting of two large red eyes about a foot apart which glowed in the night.
The initial assumption was that an airplane had crashed… that is until the reports began to come in of sightings of the monster. Eye witness testimony still exists, part of which I will quote from here:
Topping the hill, they (several school boys and a neighbor lady) could see a “glowing, hissing” object about 10 feet in diameter, about 100 yards away.
Now completely dark, the night was shattered by two lights, about a foot apart.
One of the boys had a flashlight, and when he turned it on the two distant lights of a creature ten foot tall appeared… a bright red face, bright green clothing, a head which resembled the ace of spades, and clothing which, from the waist down, hung in great folds.”
Suddenly, the creature began to “float” toward them, sending the group running back down the hill to the May house, where they quickly called the Sheriff.
These two accounts, if put side by side will show some remarkable similarities. One could make a good case that the Mothman and the Flatwoods monster were the same species.
Both creatures had red glowing eyes. Both, allowing for some exaggeration by the youngsters, were 7 foot tall or more. The clothing, which hung in folds, could have been wings, and the “floating” could have been flying.
Monsters stories are somewhat like fish tales, and we must keep that in mind to get a reliable rendering of what the Mothman really was.
The four adults in Point Pleasant also made the statement that the eyes had a “hypnotizing” effect on them. As they stared in wonderment at the creature, it suddenly moved… then made a mad dash toward an open door in the plant.
Awe had turned into fear now, as the four sped away, racing toward Point Pleasant.
Only a few moments passed before they again saw the creature… or another like it. Standing in a field just off the lonely road, it spread open its massive wings. The witnesses said that the creature’s wings were similar to those of a bat.
The creature rose into the air, seemingly without effort, lifting its enormous body against the Earth’s gravity easily. The four sped on, but now this hideous winged fiend was following them!
The frantic four, now speeding at near 100 miles per hour, were astonished to see the creature pacing them. During this run for their lives, they could hear a sound even above the roar of the car engine. This was a sound like a “record played at high speeds.”
Obviously the high speed working of its wings accounted for the strange sound. Finally the foursome reached the town of Point Pleasant, where the creature abandoned its pursuit, opting for the loneliness of the outskirts rather than the sounds and lights of the city.
The witnesses noticed a dead dog near the city limits as they finally put distance between themselves and the monster. Later, when returning with policemen to the scene, they noticed that the body of the dog was gone.
“It was shaped like a man, but bigger. Maybe six and a half or seven feet tall. And it had big wings folded against its back, ” Roger Scarberry told reporters.
“But it was those eyes that got us. It had two big eyes like automobile reflectors,” added Linda Scarberry.
“They were hypnotic. For a minute, we could only stare at it. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.”
The frightened four never stopped their car until they reached the Mason County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Millard Halstead was the first person the four frightened witnesses saw. They immediately began to tell their unusual story.
Halstead would later state: “I’ve known these kids all their lives. They’d never been in any trouble and they were really scared that night.”
The Deputy followed the four back to the area of the initial sighting. Arriving at the spot, Halstead turned his radio on to make reports if necessary.
His radio did something very odd. It made a loud screeching sound to the point that he turned it off. He was visibly shaken. He soon left the scene and immediately returned to headquarters to report his radio problems.
The harrowing experience of the two couples was not the only unusual occurrence that night in Point Pleasant. About 10:30 P.M. contractor Newell Partridge was sitting at home in front of the television. Suddenly, the picture on the screen disappeared.
It was replaced by a “herringbone pattern” and a “loud whining noise.” He could now hear the familiar sounds of his dog Bandit howling on the porch. Bandit was a big muscular German Shephard who was always on guard, alerting Partridge of any unusual happenings around the house.
He was a country dog, and used to defending himself and his family. Partridge quickly made his way to the porch to see what his loyal Bandit was making such a fuss about. The dog was heading to the family’s barn, located about one hundred and fifty yards away.
Partridge aimed his flashlight in the direction of the barn, and was shocked to see “two circle-like eyes” glowing red through the night.
Partridge’s own words were: “I shined the [flash]light in that direction, and it picked up two red circles, or eyes, which looked like bicycle reflectors. I certainly know what animal eyes look like… these were much larger. It’s a good length of a football field to that hay barn, still those eyes showed up huge for that distance.”
Something wasn’t right, and Partridge ran inside to get his trusty gun, ready to defend himself from whatever or whoever was trespassing on his property. He spent the night with one eye open, and the gun at his side. When morning broke, he went to find Bandit, worried that he was hurt, or worse, dead.
There was no sign of Bandit, but Partridge did find a worrisome clue to his whereabouts. He found tracks in a circular pattern, telling him that Bandit had gone round and round probably barking at something in the air! Bandit was never seen again.
Could the body of the dog seen on the outskirts of town been that of Bandit? The news of this strange event quickly spread from police headquarters to the local news media.
The popularity of the Batman television series and comic books would influence a local reporter to tag the unknown creature as the “Mothman.” The Batman series had a character of that name. The legend was born.
The next morning a press conference was called by Sheriff George Johnson. At this meeting, all of the witnesses of the night before were interviewed. In this short period of time, the word had spread dramatically, reaching far beyond the state of West Virginia.
Present was journalist Mary Hyre, who covered the Point Pleasant area for the Athens, Ohio paper the “Messenger.” She would become a major player in the Mothman mystery. She would write a riveting account of the West Virginia enigma which was picked up by the Associated Press.
“Everybody in Point Pleasant knew Mary,” recalled Roy Cross, her boss in the bureau.
“She ran that town.”
Hyre died February 15, 1970. Cross was one of her pallbearers, along with several West Virginia state troopers, the Mason County sheriff, and the Messenger’s publisher.
The Pittsburgh Press, now defunct, gave the United Press International version front-page coverage on its November 16 edition with the headline: “Red-Eyed 7-Footer: ‘Bird’ Flaps Scare Into W. Va. Couples.”
In time, there would be some one hundred witnesses who claimed to have seen the Mothman. Sightings were made through the rest of the year, and even into 1967.
Many descriptions of the Mothman were made, all of them similar, yet with some differences. The minor inconsistencies could easily be accounted for due to the experience of the individual witness, or the circumstances of the event, as to lighting, weather, and the venue.
“It stood taller and broader than a man, walked in sort of a halting shuffle on humanlike legs, and emitted a squeaking sound.”
“The red, glowing eyes, set into the shoulders, seem to have been more terrifying than either the size of the creature or span of its batlike wings.”
More than one witness mentioned hearing a mechanical humming as the creature flew above them. Witnesses reported feeling an uncontrollable, indescribable terror:
“I’ve never had that feeling before. A weird kind of fear. That fear gripped you and held you.”
One of the most discussed sightings of the creature would occur on the night of November 16, 1966. A terrifying creature would be encountered again in the sparsely populated TNT area at the home of Ralph Thomas.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Wamsley were visiting the Thomas family along with Mrs. Marcella Bennett and her young daughter. As the Wamsley group was walking through the yard to their car, they seemed to accidently step on top of something either resting or asleep on the ground.
They had encountered the Mothman.
Marcella Bennett would describe the experience in this manner:
“It rose up slowly from the ground. A big, gray thing. Bigger than a man, with terrible, glowing red eyes.”
Marcella was so terrified that she dropped her infant to the ground. The creature opened its massive wings, and as it did, Wamsley quickly grabbed the baby, and ran with the rest of the witnesses into the house.
The three children of the house opened the door for the group as they too had witnessed the winged ogre. Mothman followed behind them, coming up on the porch, and even peering through the window.
All of those in the house were totally terrified. Walmsley immediately phoned the police, but before they arrived, the Mothman was gone. The witnesses in the yard were probably spared injury or death because the creature was not fully awake.
Mrs. Bennet would require medical attention. She was in a state of shock after the event.
At the TNT area outside of town, each night would bring visitors hoping to get a glimpse of the Mothman. Many brought their families along, and camped out. They brought along food, blankets, books, and cameras.
Many hoped to get that one photograph of this mysterious being. No doubt a good photograph would bring a small fortune when the media was in the Mothman frenzy. It was common place for reporters and television crews to camp out at the old TNT plant, hoping for that one big story or picture that would launch the career of an up and coming reporter, or make a legend of an established one.
Unfortunately for them, the only legend launched would be that of the Mothman.
The sightings of the Mothman seemed to wind down by the end of 1967, but the legend would go out with a bang. On November 21, police received a frantic call from Richard West of Charlestown. He had spotted a tall winged creature on the roof of his neighbors house.
He described the being as having a wing span of six to eight feet. He also detected the red glowing eyes. He claimed that the Mothman rose straight up from the roof, just “like a helicopter.” Only four days later, on the 25th, Tom Vry was driving along Route 62 in the TNT area. As he scanned the landscape, he was taken aback by the sight of a Mothman standing in a field along the road.
He described the creature as tall and gray with wings. He said the being spread its wings, and lifted straight up into the air. Then the Mothman flew above his car. Vry sped away and saw him no more.
Two days later on the 27th, Connie Carpenter was driving home from church. Near the town of Mason, she spied a grayish figure standing on the golf course. The creature saw her, and flew directly toward her car. He got close enough for her to see his face. She described it as “horrible.”
Would this be the end of the Mothman? For a time maybe, but the legend will continue. Many UFOologists write the legend off as incredible fantasy, or a hoax. However, it must be said that the reports of the Mothman should be viewed on a case by case basis, just like UFO reports.
Certainly there were some reports of the Mothman that were hoaxes, as to be expected. Hoaxes are just part of human nature. Many try to sensationalize an ongoing event for the purpose of personal notoriety or financial gain, but any clear minded investigator must not discount ALL of the reports just because SOME of them are false.
The Mothman sightings invoked as many explanations as sightings. The strange phenomena that accompanied the first reports continued to the end. Many residents of the area of Point Pleasant were victims of electrical problems and even apparitions, leading some to believe that the whole phenomena was spiritual in nature.
It should be mentioned that animal and cattle mutilation reports skyrocketed during the Mothman period, though no direct evidence connected the Mothman to the reports.
Some of the theories put forth for the devilish bird were:
He was the result of some type of demonic or cult ritual.
He was formerly a crane who was subjected to a type of genetic altering due to secret chemicals used at the old TNT plant.
He was the manifestation of a 200 year old Shawnee Indian curse put on the area of Point Pleasant.
He was a type of secret government experiment, as reports of the infamous Men in Black visiting witnesses were reported.
Those who laughed at these theories claimed that the sightings were nothing more than misinformed reports of the sandhill crane, which did have reddish patches on its head, and did get quite large.
The area also had among its native wildlife other large species of birds, such as an extremely large vulture found by some young boys in July 1967 in New Haven. Also a local farmer shot and killed an Arctic snow owl with a wingspan of five feet.
Mothman was even blamed for a natural disaster that occurred on December 15, 1967. The Silver Bridge, which crossed the Ohio River at Point Pleasant, collapsed during a heavy traffic period. Forty-six vehicles fell into the icy waters, and thirty-eight fatalities were reported.
Supposedly this marked the end of the Mothman sightings. Some have even surmised that the majority of the Mothman population lived under the bridge and were killed during the collapse. Only a couple of sightings were reported after the bridge disaster.
Everyone loves a mystery, and the Mothman is certainly one that will endure, just like other monster stories. It is human nature to perpetuate an exciting story, whether true or false.
We must not forget however that a good number of the sightings of the Mothman were made by reasonable, sane individuals who were genuinely frightened, and stood to gain nothing by reporting what they saw. There is no doubt in my mind that at least SOME of the sightings are real.
We are left with a puzzling question. Scientists will tell you that there is NO known species of animal that matches the eye witness accounts of the Mothman.
If the scientific community is correct, then every eyewitness was either lying, having a hallucination, or simply mistook a native animal or bird as a monster.
This is extremely difficult to believe. Sane, responsible people know better. Give them some credit. There is a huge difference between a crane, and a 7-8 foot tall winged creature with red eyes that flies right at you, or follows your automobile at 100 hundred miles per hour, or takes off vertically like a helicopter. There is no crane that can do these things, but the Mothman can. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is unique in Ufology for several reasons. Although there have been a number of eyewitness accounts of UFOs shooting beams either to the ground or at someone (Travis Walton) the case from Roaring River, Missouri has eyewitness testimony of personal items being destroyed by a beam or some other weapon from a UFO.
The UFO, in this case, was seen and photographed.
On November 22, 1966, the events of Roaring River, Missouri. The exact location was near Cassville. During deer season, two hunters were trying their luck. As one of the men returned to their campsite, he became alarmed when he saw smoke rising from their camp.
He immediately ran to find out what had happened. He discovered the hunters’ 12″X18′ tent and other equipment totally destroyed. The tent was still smoldering.
Also some shoes and records were still smoking. One of the aluminum poles that supported the tent was singed, but not burned. The aluminum cots inside their tent were melted.
Oddly, the hunters’ tent was set up under two trees, and being winter time, the leaves of the tree were dried; the leaves showed no damage at all, indicating that the destructive force was a narrow beam.
About 15 feet away was a dead tree with the top still burning. The witness then heard a low humming sound, and looking for the source, he saw an unusual object rising from the valley just beyond the burning tree. He was able to photograph the object only a few seconds after it left the ground, and managed a second photo a few seconds later. The entire sighting was no more than 20 seconds.
The humming sound coming from the UFO intensified as it picked up speed. His last look at the object put it about 40 degrees above the horizon.
It was gaining speed as it left. The UFO was of an aluminum color, reflecting the sunlight. Also, the witness saw what to him appeared to be a band around the the center of the object.
The UFO flew effortlessly as it moved into the skies. The witness walked the distance from his location to the area of the object, measuring approximately 300 feet. The object’s diameter was estimated at 25 feet, being about 8 feet thick.
The hunter had used a 620 format Argoflex camera with a coated varex 75mm, f/4.5 lens, shutter speed at 1/90 seconds, f/8 depth of field if focused at infinity was 41 feet to infinity. The two photographs were in the center of the roll with other camping exposures at beginning and end of roll.
There can be little doubt that the damage at the campsite was done by the UFO photographed by the hunter.
An important UFO close encounter of the second kind comes to us from Canada. This amazing account details the experiences of Stephen Michalak of Winnipeg. Michalak earned his living as a mechanic, but was an amateur geologist, and while enjoying a few days off, he decided to do some prospecting. He tried his luck in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.
This area was by no means new to Michalak.
He had spent considerable time in the vicinity of the lake there.
Michalak had followed reports of quartz veins being found in the area around Falcon lake. There were also reports of silver being found, and Michalak was on the trail of the valuable metal on May 19, 1967. He had traveled by bus from his home town of Winnipeg to a motel on the Trans-Canada Highway the night before.
Stephen rose early that morning, heading into the vast beauty of the wilderness. Only a couple of hours had transpired before he found a quartz vein by a small brook. After breaking for a quiet lunch, he resumed his work. At about 12:15 P.M. his attention was drawn away from his labors by the sound of geese passing overhead.
Looking up to see them fly over, he was shocked to see two red, glowing, elongated objects descending from the skies. As they came ever closer, their shape was defined more as disc-shaped. As he stood mesmerized by the sight, one of the craft abruptly stopped and hovered in midair.
The other continued its downward flight until it landed on a big, smooth rock only about 150 feet from him. The hovering craft began to move away, and as it went, it changed colors from red to orange, and finally gray.
It disappeared into the clouds above him. The landed craft also began to change its color in the same pattern. Finally, the gray turned into what appeared to be “hot stainless steel,” with a golden glow.
Michalak had been wearing his protective welding glasses earlier, and now they protected his eyes from the brilliant purple lights shining through openings in the front of the craft. He could now smell something..like sulfur, and hear a type of hissing sound. Curiosity overcame him.
He knew he was looking at something he thought he would never see, a craft from another world.
The only emotion more powerful than his curiosity was the gripping fear that held him in his tracks. He did have the presence of mind to sketch the object, never moving a step.
After approximately 30 minutes, he was frightened to see a door open from the side of the object. He could now see inside the craft! The interior was brilliantly lighted.
Pulling all the courage together that he possessed, he moved ever closer to the other worldly craft.
As he reached a point about 60 feet from the mysterious flying machine, he could hear two voices conversing above other sounds coming from inside the object.
Being a multi-linguist, he tried several languages to communicate with whoever… or whatever was inside. All of his efforts failed to draw a response from inside.
Undaunted, he moved even closer. He reached the door, and stuck his head inside. He saw a large panel of different colored lights, and other light beams crossing in different directions.
Michalak would later describe the flashing lights as resembling lights on a computer.
He saw no one in the craft, and decided not to push his luck any farther. He moved back away from the door. Suddenly, three panels moved together, hiding the door. His attention was now on the exterior of the craft.
He later described the surface as “highly polished colored glass with no breaks or seams in its surface.”
He reached out his hand to touch the polished surface, and his glove was melted. Suddenly the object suddenly moved, and as it did, a vented opening was exposed, like a type of exhaust port. He estimated it’s size as about nine inches high by six inches wide.
Heat was vented through the opening, setting Michalak’s shirt and undershirt on fire. He was now in great pain. He quickly tore off his top garments, and turned to see the craft ascending back into the skies. He felt a rush of air as it made it’s departure. He could still smell the craft after it had disappeared.
Knowing that he needed medical attention, he quickly tried to mark the spot. Using rocks, pine cones, loose dirt, anything he could find, he made a landmark. A severe headache now was complicated by a sick stomach.
He broke into a cold sweat, and vomited.
On his way back to his motel, he had to stop several times to ease his stomach pain.
After being refused help from a passing police officer, he finally reached his motel. It was now 4:00 P.M. He entered the coffee shop, and asked someone to recommend a doctor.
The nearest doctor was in Kenora, 45 miles east of Falcon Lake. Because of the distance, he decided to return home instead of making the trip to Kenora.
The next bus would not arrive for about four hours, so he rested in his room, and phoned his wife.
He told her only that he was in an accident, but was OK. He instructed her to have their son meet him at the bus terminal in Winnipeg. He arrived there at 10:45 P.M. His son took him to the Misericordia Hospital immediately.
He was treated for his headache, nausea, and the grid-like burns on his chest. Theorists came out of the woodwork suggesting that his burns were from a barbecue pit, or some other common object.
Stephen Michalak made not a cent from his story. He paid all of his own medical expenses, including a trip to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for additional treatment.
To defray these costs, he wrote a privately funded booklet on his experience, but it lost money.
Ultimately, Michalak was seen by more than a dozen doctors in the United States and Canada.
The site of the experience was investigated by the RCMP, RCAF, other government officials and civilian groups. America’s Condon Committee also joined the investigation.
Nothing conclusive was every offered to debunk the fantastic account of Stephen Michalak. His story is unique in many ways, and is accepted as genuine by many UFO groups and investigators. NOTE: The top image is CGI.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO event occurred on January 8, 1981 and was observed by a single witness. Due to the French privacy laws, the case was originally published with the witness name replaced with the pseudonym Renato Collini; however the witness name is by now well known to the UFO community as Renato Nicolai.
The account provided by the witness to the police authorities is as follows:
I have lived in Trans-en-Province at my current address for nearly 14 years. My wife and I live alone. She is the cleaning lady at the social security office in Draguignan. I have not worked since November 1979. I was previously an employee of the SCNI company.
This firm went out of business and I was laid off. I recieve a disability pension because I suffered from a heart problem since 1973.
Yesterday, January 8. 1981, I was busy around the house as I am practically every day. I was behind the house, which is built over a restanque (raised level). I was building a concrete shelter for a water pump. Behind my house on the same level is an expanse of flat ground.
It is reached through a path along the base of the house.
It was about 5 PM. The weather was turning colder. My attention was attracted by a slight noise, a sort of faint whistling. I turned around and saw a device in the air at the height of a big pine tree at the edge of the property.
This device, which was not spinning, was coming lower toward the ground. I was only hearing a slight whistling sound. I was not seeing any flames, either below or around this device.
While it was continuing to come down, I went closer by walking towards the stone cabin above my house. When I placed myself against the wall of the cabin, I could see very well over the roof, since this cabin too is built over a raised level. I was on the higher level, about 1.2 m from the roof.
From that position, I clearly saw the device resting on the ground. Right away it lifted off, still emitting a slight whistling sound. Reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed toward the forest of Trans, that is, towards the northeast.
When the device lifted off, I saw four openings below, through which neither flame nor smoke were escaping. The device kicked off a little dust when it left the ground.
At that instant, I was about 30 m away from the landing site. Later I went to the spot and I noticed a circle about 2 m in in diameter. At certain places along the circumference of the circle were traces like abrasions…
The device had the shape of two saucers, one inverted on top of the other. It must have measured about 1.5 m in height. It was the color of lead. This device had a ridge all the way around its circumference. Under the machine I saw two kinds of pieces as it was lifting off. They could be reactors or feet.
There were also two other circles which looked like trapdoors. The two reactors, or feet, extended about 20 cm below the body of the machine.
I have not felt any disturbance of the sense of vision or hearing.
Parts of the account obtained by a civilian investigator are also relevant:
There [the witness] discovers a sort of ovoid vehicle, with the general shape of two half spheres of unequal volume, clearly separated by a flat ledge, extending at least 15 cm and forming a ring around the metallic mass which has a… height of between 2 and 2.5 m/…
The machine lifts off, making a slight amount of dust and with a soft whistling. Then it seems to tilt, exposing its underside, and it takes off at lightning speed, passing exactly between the two tall trees, at the exact spot from which it had seemed to fall.
The witness has noted that the landing trajectory is not identical to the takeoff trajectory.
GEPAN (a department of the French Space Agency responsible for the investigation of UFO reports) also reconstructed the trajectory and duration.
Trajectory The witness states he began to perceive the phenomenon in the sky above the trees at the back end of the large platform, more precisely between the two tall conifers that tower above the wood.
Mr. Nicolai states that the motion was fast and continuous, without sudden changes in speed, and that there was no stop until the time when contact was established with the ground… The departure path is described by the witness as similar to the path of arrival…
Sound … He compares it to a wind blowing fairly strongly. He does not say whether or not the sound stopped during the landing. The shock at the impact point was recalled like that of a stone falling to the ground…
The Takeoff Phase… the object was resting on the ground for several seconds before it suddenly rose vertically over several meters, tilted… continued to rise in this position and disappeared in the sky.
Note that this object is engaging in the behavior I have termed “drop-in”, where the object arrives on a steep trajectory and departs on a steep trajectory, with only a short period in the landing or near landing location.
Detailed Sequence Of Events
Of importance to determining the point or range of events in the sequence which might correspond to the creation of the trace, is a detailed and measured sequence of events, which, based on the reference, seems to be as follows:
Elapsed Time Event Comments
0-3 secs Witness first sees the object which appears to be above two tall conifers approx 35 m from the impact point. Distance estimate is based on map and statement that the cabin is 35 m away from impact point; comparison of that distance on the map with the distance to the tree suggests an additional 35 m to the tree.
3 secs Object strikes the ground with a sound like a stone falling. The motion from the trees to the impact point is fast and continuous. Assuming the distance from the impact point to be 35m for the top of the tree, and assuming the altitude to be above the tree (stated to be “dozens of meters high”,); because of the error in translation, resolved to 10 m, we take 10 m as the altitude of the object; the distance traversed between first sight and impact is therefore 14 m.
The following assume a constant deceleration:
The deceleration based on a 3 second time to cross this distance is -0.32G from a speed of 34 kph.
According to Velasco, an upper limit to the weight based on the ground trace is 700 kg. To accomplish the noted deceleration at that weight would require a thrust of 7,171 kg.
4-25 secs Object is on the ground and the witness is continuing to move to a new location. Assuming 8 secs to walk 10m (a reasonably brisk walk), walking 30 m takes 24 secs, of which it is assumed 1-2 secs are used while object is descending, since the report refers to “while it was continuing to come down, I went closer by walking”.
25-28 secs Witness observes the object on the ground. According to the statement: “several seconds”; also, “From that position I clearly saw the device resting on the ground.”
28-35 secs Object lifts from the ground, tilts, and departs. Altitude appears to be that of the tops of the trees, here estimated to be 10 m (“it lifted off… reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed”).
It took from 1-3 secs to accomplish this.
The following assume a constant acceleration / deceleration:
If it took 3 sec, then it accelerated at approximately 0.45 G for 1.5 sec to 5 m and then decelerated at -0.45G to 10 m; the thrust required in the acceleration phase is 10,204 kg assuming a 700 kg weight.
If it took 1 sec, it accelerated at approximately 4G for 0.5 sec to 5 m and then decelerated at -4G for 0.5 sec to 10 m; the thrust required in the acceleration phase is 91,840 kg, assuming a 700 kg weight.
The GEPAN account differs somewhat, claiming “it rose vertically over several meters, tilted above the platform, continued to rise in this position and disappeared in the sky.” Hopefully “several” is 10 or so.
Description Of The Trace
The trace was found by the witness immediately after the departure of the object. The trace was circular, 2.4 m in diameter, and had the form of a ring, 0.2 m in width (it is claimed that there is a “crown” to the trace which is only 0.1 m in width,).
Note that the witness reported the object surrounded by a shelf approximately 0.15 m in width.
Photographs show the trace as lighter in color than the surrounding dirt. Vegetation remains (leaves and sticks) from the edges of the path where the object landed are seen to cross the trace (as of the next day). There does not appear to be any preferential orientation for this material, nor does it appear affected by pressure or heating. In combination, this indicates the possibility that either a) the force which produced the trace had no outward and no inward components, or b) the material was swept back over the trace either at or after the object departure.
Note that the witness mentioned the object’s departure as having raised some dust.
The soil of the trace is lighter than neighboring soil, appears to be slightly raised or crusty, and bears radial striations. These striations are not perfectly radial, but are slightly curved in a clockwise direction, and are slightly irregular.
The trace ring shows these formations most prominently on the directly east and west sides of the ring. The north side of the trace shows a slightly lower degree of the same effect.
The width of the ring as photographed and diagrammed shows no notable deviation, nor does the circularity of the ring show any notable deviation.
Hypothesis Concerning The Time When The Trace Was Formed
The following hypotheses are possible with regard to when the trace was formed:
The trace was formed at the time the object decelerated. The trace was formed when the object impacted the ground. The trace was formed when the object was resting on the ground. The trace was formed when the object rose from the ground. The trace was formed when the object hovered before accelerating away. For the purpose of these hypothesis it is presumed that the trace is a side effect of a force exerted by the object.
There are discriminators which can help select the most likely of the hypotheses:
Geometric discriminators relate to expectations of the geometry of the trace based on the dynamic behavior of the object.
Energetic discriminators relate to whether a given hypothesis can, from the present or required kinetic energy, generate the temperature change expected based on the trace analysis.
The trace is circular, in the form of a ring. No notable deviation from circularity appears to be present. No other traces are visible.
Most prominent trace effects are E, W, and slightly less to the N on the ring.
The trace shows the effects of heating to below 600 degrees C. This heating was thought to be due to friction or impact,.
The trace is a ring either 0.2 or 0.1 m in width. The outer diameter is 2.4 m. If the inner diameter is 2.2 m, the area of the ring is 41.4 sq m. If the inner diameter is 2.3 m, the area of the ring is 21.15 sq m.
The trace shows effects to a depth of 1 cm in the thickest area of the trace.
The volume of the trace is thus 0.04 cu m.
The object mass is 700 kg. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m / sec / sec, and the speed after falling 10 m is 14 m / sec or 50 kph. The kinetic energy of the 700 kg mass at the end of that fall is 6.86 x 10^11 ergs (6.86 x 10^6 joules).
The object engaged in forward motion during descent. It was first observed 35 m from the impact point. The forward speed is 34 kph, assuming a constant deceleration over 3 secs to a speed of 0. The forward kinetic energy is thus, at first appearance, 3.07 x 10^11 ergs (3.07 x 10^6 joules).
The total energy of the object (kinetic and potential) at its first appearance, is 9.93 x 10^11 ergs (9.93 x 10^6 joules).
This is, in essence, the energy budget of the object, which it is assumed must be dissipated prior to or at the time of intersection with the ground.
A force was emitted as a cylinder with a wall 0.1-0.2 m thick and that cylinder extended perpendicular from the rim of the object, and this force was the means by which the trace was formed.
This is supported by the correspondence between the width of the rim and the width of the circle. The material of the object has a specific heat similar to magnesium (1.01 / g – degree C or 1001 / kg – degree C) The ground has a specific heat 1/5 that of water (838 joules / kg – degree C).
1. The trace was formed at the time the object decelerated This is not supported, since
Forward motion would smear the trace away from circularity, which is not observed.
Forward motion with the force cylinder pointed toward the trace would cause the force cylinder to have an oval intersection with the ground, which would approach circularity as the object approached the trace site. This is not observed.
There is no preferential effect on any part of the trace which is along the line of travel (WNW). Preferential effects do not show a correlation with the line of travel.
2. The trace was formed when the object impacted the ground This is not supported, since:
If the object retained any forward motion, the objections raised to the previous hypothesis still hold.
If the object had dissipated all forward motion, the only remaining motion would be downward. If all of the vertical potential energy, now kinetic, were dissipated into the trace, a temperature increase of only 1.36 degrees C would be the result. This is insufficient to cause the observed effect. Addition of the forward motion only increases the temperature by 0.61 degrees C.
The imprint of an impact would show an the “feet” rather than the shape of the rim, unless the feet were not extended until departure. If the feet were not present, the imprint would take the form of the bottom of the object. In either case, the expected imprint is not observed.
3. The trace was formed when the object was resting on the ground This is not supported, since:
The imprint of the object resting on the ground would show an imprint of the feet rather than the shape of the rim, unless the feet were not extended until departure. The expected imprint is not observed.
A weight of 700 kg undergoing gravitational acceleration cannot produce the levels of heat observed.
4. The trace was formed when the object rose from the ground. This is supported by the shape of the trace, which indicates that the force was applied in a nearly circular pattern; if released from the rim of the object, which is suggested by the dimensions of the trace, there are no apparent variations in geometry which might be attributed to wobble or to a sweep of the force cylinder to one side or the other.
There are several possibilities as to how the trace might have been formed at this time:
The full force of the thrust was expressed as pressure on the ground within the area of the ring. If this is the only contributor to trace formation, this pressure must be sufficient to heat the ground to some affective temperature below 600 degrees C.
The thrust was expressed in the kinetic energy of particles which dissipated their energy as heat upon impact with the ground. These particles might be molecular, atomic or subatomic (i.e. electrons, protons, etc.)
Electromagnetic radiation was dissipated as heat within the area of the trace. This radiation might be a side effect of the thrust.
Subhypothesis 1 is not supported, since the maximum suggested thrust (91,840 kg in the 0.5 sec to 5 m scenario) creates a pressure of only 2 atm, or 23,000 kg / sq m. This is not sufficient to produce the indicated heating.
Assuming the kinetic energy of the particles of subhypothesis 2 to be the same as the kinetic energy of the object at the end of the acceleration phase, the highest degree of heating produced would be near 3 degrees C. Thus, subhypothesis 2 is not supported.
Insufficient information is available to assess subhypothesis 3. Since we do not know much about the spectrum of possible radiation, it is difficult to make any estimates as to how much energy might be needed to created the observed heating.
All of these hypotheses and figures should be examined, keeping in mind that the weight estimate is based on the weight effects on the trace, and if the weight of the object did not cause the trace, the trace forces may simply reflect the weight of the object combined with the force of the thrust.
Under these circumstances, thrust, energy and weight estimates used above would be much less meaningful, except insofar as they provide upper limits to the actual values.
5. The trace was formed when the object hovered before accelerating away Given that the thrusts and energies of hypothesis 4 (except for subhypothesis 3) are insufficient to produce the trace, the forces in a hover at a higher altitude would also be insufficient.
Further evidence that this is the case comes from a geometric analysis, which shows that the subsequent tilt of the object would have produced an elongation of the trace, or a variety of parabolic or hyperbolic secondary traces, none of which were observed.
Geometric evidence indicates that the trace was not formed on approach, impact or during the tilt to final departure phase.
Kinetic energy to heat conversion evidence indicates that the trace was not formed on impact or by the object resting on the ground, or by the thrust of the object on departure expressed either as pressure or as the kinetic energy of particles ejected from the rim of the object.
These findings support the idea that the Trans-en-Provence trace represents an unconventional event.
These findings also place certain limiting conditions on the forces used by the Trans-en-Provence object. For instance, it seems that the object did not generate trace-producing force on the ground during the approach phase, despite the need to dissipate apparently considerable kinetic energy in the downward and forward direction.
Furthermore, it apparently did not generate trace-producing force on the ground during the tilt to depart phase. In both of these phases, the altitude appears to have been approximately 10 m.
This indicates an extremely localized force. A similarly sized helicopter, for instance, hovering at 10 m would create a large disturbance on the ground due to the downward flow of air from the rotors.
Suggestions For Future Trace Investigations
Weight measurements are critical. Even an upper or lower bound weight can be helpful in dynamic simulations. But no information about the weight of the object can be inferred without measurements of the resistance of the soil to penetration.
Depth of the trace or pressure resistance of the trace is meaningless without control measurements outside and at some distance from the trace.
Dimensional measurements need to be precise. The area around a trace must be checked for subsidiary traces. These geometric characteristics need to be able to be checked for the slightest irregularity or deformation.
If possible, core samples should be obtained across the trace and in control areas outside the trace.
Sample depths of up to 1 foot are preferred. These allow analysts to infer more about the nature of the cause of the trace, and also preserve information which can otherwise quickly decay.
If evidence of heating can be found, it can assist in dynamic modeling.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO observation lasted under a minute. However, in that minute, information was gained by an alert witness and extracted by focused and experienced investigators which allow an analyst to form and validate hypotheses about the nature of the object.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO was able to dissipate considerable kinetic energy without affecting the ground beneath it. This may have resulted in the observed “whistling” sound, which indicates a motion of air away from the object.
The object was then able to create close to 600 degrees C of ground heating on departure, despite the apparent insufficiency of mere thrust pressure to produce those temperatures. It then departed after tilting, and did not produce any further effects on the environment at that time.
Many previous observations have indicated that the UFO rim is a source of energetic phenomena. The Trans-en-Provence case continues to support that pattern. NOTE: The above mage is CGI.
Early on the morning of July 30, 1968, a couple (names on file at NICAP) finished working on their new house in the Robert’s Hill district of Claremont, New Hampshire and were preparing to retire.
Some lights in the field back of the house, apparently about 200 feet away, attracted their attention and they went to the window to see what was going on.
To their astonishment, they saw a dome-shaped object hovering about 10 feet off the ground. The underside of the object was illuminated, and the light covered an area about 20 feet in diameter on the ground.
Since they were in a fairly isolated area with no telephone (they had just moved into the house), the couple became frightened. They could hear a buzzing sound, like a transformer, coming from the object. The time was about 2:30 a.m.
Mr. and Mrs. John Meloney of the New Hampshire NICAP Subcommittee investigated the report in close cooperation with the Claremont police. In their interview with the couple, they learned that the UFO had remained over the field until about 4:30 a.m.
Then the humming became very loud, the light grew to high intensity and the UFO moved away at a low angle upward to the west and disappeared.
In the garage, the family dog whined loudly as the UFO departed.
Two separate groups of witnesses have been located by the Subcommittee. The reports seem to indicate beyond a reasonable doubt that something unexplained was in the area. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
We were traveling south on mission road going toward home (Green valley) from Tucson. On the road below us was Bomber factory, Hughes aircraft factory and Tucson airport as well as Davis Montham air Base. The mountain, called A mountain was to the west of us. I saw several —3—bright lights to my right. They were over a small ridge of A mountain. and flew around it. They seemed to be banking to the west. My husband went just past the mountain the orbs reappeared. They seemed to be in a line in front of our vision west and aprox 20 degrees degree above the horizon. They did not flash only glowed and hovered there. Two young people pulled off behind us. The young man kept yelling “tell me you see that, tell me you see that’ and called his grandfather who lives on reservation land to go outside and look up. The girl stayed in the car. She was terrified and just wanted to leave. A very large object appeared from the south west that while opening up, looked very much like a air hanger in the sky. There were a series of lights that appeared to be hanging from a roof of some kind and your could see metal gurters. The lights hovering went into the structure one at a time and the “bay doors” closed. There was NO SOUND. Suddenly two jets came from the SE and flew directly over head. They went round the mountain and back heading back the way they came. They must have passed within a quarter mile of the dark object in the sky and never saw it. As soon as the jets left so did the object. It went south west. We followed it down Mission until we hit Duvaull mine road and returned home. Once that object left we heard crickets and cows and a dog barking again. But not while it was there. We said little to each other on the way home. I will admit it, I was shaken and excited at the same time. It was spooky. NOYE: The above image is CGI.
On July 8, the pilot and passengers of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk were approached by a UFO over Warren, Ohio about 10:20 p.m.
Two brothers, Richard and Ken Montgomery, with Elizabeth Soverns and Rosalind Rians as passengers, were flying at about 4,000 feet over Warren; Richard Montgomery was at the controls.
“I noticed an object coming toward us from the direction of Youngstown to the southeast,” he related. “I swung over… to get a closer look when the object headed directly toward our airplane.
It stopped and hung motionless in the air… momentarily, and as our aircraft came closer, it moved swiftly upward and came back at us from another angle.”
Montgomery said the UFO appeared metallic and had a light beaming from its underside. He estimated it was from six to ten feet in diameter and from 16 to 20 feet tall.
The pilot maneuvered the plane several times, but the object kept following at a distance of from 150 to 200 yards. Then the UFO “suddenly sped in an easterly direction at amazing speed and was quickly out of sight.”
During this encounter, control tower operators at Youngstown Municipal Airport received calls from area residents concerning “a dogfight between two aircraft in the skies over Warren.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
7th August 1968-Only seven years after the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, the New England states would again host an alien abduction. Buff Ledge Camp in Vermont would be the site of a visitation by four UFOs which would appear, make revolutionary aerial maneuvers, and alter the lives of at least two young people.
Buff Ledge was a girls camp located north of Burlington on Lake Champlain. During their tenure as summer camp employees, Michael Lapp, a sixteen year old maintenance man, and 19 year old water ski instructor Janet Cornell were relaxing at a boat dock on a slack day.
On this particular August afternoon, the swim team had a made a trip to Burlington to compete in a meet, and the camp was virtually deserted. Late in the afternoon, the two friends were enjoying the view of the sun setting over the water, when a bright light appeared in the darkening sky.
At first, Michael thought they were being treated to a beautiful, close up view of the planet Venus. All of a sudden, the glowing light began to move downward, and ever closer to Michael and Janet. The object, at first a round glow, now began to flatten out as it came even closer.
Michael shouted, “Wow! Venus is falling.”
As the two steadfastly watched the light, three smaller lights seemed to drop from the larger one, which quickly moved up and disappeared from sight. The three smaller objects began to move over the lake.
They were obviously under intelligent control. The objects put on a show for Michael and Janet, doing zigzag maneuvers, loops, and then descended like falling leaves. The three objects now moved even closer to the two baffled teenagers. After forming a triangle, two of the objects pulled back. Michael would later recall a sound “like a thousand tuning forks” when the two left the third craft alone.
The one remaining UFO passed over Michael and Janet, then shot upward and momentarily disappeared. It very soon reappeared, tilted to one side, and dropped into the lake. A couple of minutes seemed to pass before the object reemerged from the water, and began gliding straight toward them!
The object was now close enough to see a transparent dome occupied by two childlike creatures. Michael would describe the beings as having elongated necks, big heads, and no hair.
Their eyes were also large, and extended around the side of their heads. Michael began to sense a kind of mental communication with the two beings. Watching them intently, Michael slapped his knee, and to his surprise, one of the occupants mimicked his movement.
The craft now moved directly overhead, and shot a beam at Michael and Janet. Grabbing Janet’s shoulder, Michael pulled both of them on their backs on the dock. Suddenly, Michael was overcome with the fear of being kidnapped.
He remembers screaming, “We don’t want to go!” The light from the beam was so bright that Michael recalls being able to see the bones in his hand, like an X-ray. The two teenagers both later related that the beam had a “liquid” feeling to it, and gave them the sense of free floating.
Their next conscious thoughts would be that of staring at the object again from the dock. The sky was now totally black, and Michael wondered how long he had been in this one spot. Looking at Janet, he could see that she was in a trancelike state; drowsy and disoriented.
They now heard the welcome sounds of the swim team returning from their meet in Burlington. The UFO now moved upward into the black sky, flashed its light beam repeatedly, and then vanished from sight.
Strangely, Michael and Janet did not discuss what had happened to them, not now, and not for the next couple of weeks, when camp season ended. Maybe the strange things they had seen over the lake this evening were just optical illusions. Maybe they weren’t.
After their summer camp jobs were over, Michael and Janet went their separate ways. During the next five years, Michael rarely thought about that night. But in time, he began to have disturbing dreams…dreams about being kidnapped; abducted…against his will. The dreams would come… like they did… then the dreams would vanish…like they did.
It would be ten years after his harrowing experience that Michael made a decision to contact the Center for UFO Studies, and search for answers. Investigator Walter Webb was assigned to the case, and after hearing Michael’s story, suggested regressive hypnosis to help rid him of his emotional strife and the frightening dreams.
During Michael’s hypnosis, he vividly recalled his experiences on that night in August 1968. He remembered how the beam of light lifted him into the crafts interior; how he entered a bigger craft, and how he saw Janet lying on a table being examined.
The small beings shined a light into her eyes, scraped her skin, and took fluids from her body. “The aliens all looked alike, Michael recalled, and had those large eyes, a mouth without lips, no ears, and two small openings for a nose.”
Michael also described the beings as having three pointed, web-like digits for fingers, and their bodies felt “damp and clammy.” The aliens related to Michael that their mission was to “make life like ours… other places.”
Janet also underwent the regression, and her descriptions only went to verify Michael’s. She recalled feeling “cold” on the examining table, with something “pulling her hair and pinching her neck.” The abduction of Michael Lapp and Janet Cornell certainly falls within the general pattern of abductions reported by many others.
To confirm the facts of their fantastic story, Webb located several other members of the camp who had witnessed the strange lights over Lake Champlain the very night of the abduction! Two other employees reported a similar experience which had occurred earlier that same summer, when they observed unidentified flying objects hovering over the lake for about twenty minutes.
Although Michael and Janet’s experience was not reported for ten years after the fact, it is still a well documented case of alien abduction. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

11-2-89 …………… ARKHANGELSK RUSSIA
Stopped at night on the side of the road, two Russian truck drivers were astounded by the sight of a spaceship before them and amazed when one of the drivers was welcomed aboard.
On the night of 2nd November, 1989 the air temperature dropped very suddenly to below freezing.
Two professional Russian truck drivers, Oleg Kirzhakov and his companion Nikolai Baranchikov were driving their truck from near the area of Arkhangelsk to Moscow.
They were hurrying home to finish all the formalities related to their business trip before the holidays.
In the vicinity of Emtza railway station, the road was blocked by heaps of sand and gravel.
The road in front of them was under repair and Oleg had to turn onto a dirt road to detour. On one bend in the road, the truck’s headlights fell upon a huge structure, which was standing off to the right of the road.
“I thought it was some kind of construction equipment,” said Oleg. “There were many machines there because the road was under construction.
However, when I drove closer, I saw a big object, that in the headlights had a metallic sheen to it. When we got to within 80–90 feet of the object, our motor stalled, and our truck coasted several feet further and stopped.
The headlights that were connected to the back-up power source were still on. My partner and I couldn’t understand what had happened.
The road at this point had a bend in it and trees on the right side of the road blocked our view of the object.
We understood that we were seeing something very unusual in front of us, and were afraid that something unavoidable would happen.
Hence, I asked Nikolai to remain in the truck and observe events while I approached the object.
I left the cab and decided to approach the object to examine it more closely.
After I had passed the hood of the truck, I began to feel, with each step I took, an increased resistance from the air.
My body seemed to melt—it became difficult to move, and I knew that if I got any closer to the object, I would not be able to move at all.”
Oleg turned back toward the truck and tried to approach the object from another direction. He moved carefully, stopping after each step.
He felt the same, constantly-increasing resistance from the air.
He succeeded in coming to within about 30–36 feet of the object. He stopped on the shoulder of the road and began to examine it very carefully. Very quickly, he came to the conclusion that this object was not of Earthly origin.
Truly, it was something very unusual. In front of Oleg, there stood a huge disc-shaped object, approximately 120–140 feet in diameter, with a dome-shaped top, on which no other structures were visible.
Along the perimeter of the disc, there were some dark holes evident, which Oleg at first thought were portholes. Extending from the lower part of the object, there were two structures visible, which seemed to support the ship.
The far edge of the disc was slightly elevated, and was resting on some birch trees, two of which were broken.
The object looked dark and uninhabited and there were no traces visible of windows, doors or hatches.
A fiery request
Why is this object here, in the middle of the forest, at night? What is its purpose? Maybe something has gone wrong and it needs assistance?
All these questions flooded Oleg’s mind and at that very moment, in front of him, at a distance of an outstretched hand, right in the air, appeared a glimmering red, dotted line.
This line formed a transparent, square-shaped screen, 150 mm x 150 mm in size, with rounded corners.
Several words, written in red letters, appeared on the screen. Oleg did not remember the exact phrase, but the essence of the phrase was a request for “burning fire”.
Oleg continued, “I realized that the screen was illuminated on the body of the object. I mechanically turned to look back at Nikolai, who was still sitting in the cab of the truck. Once again, I observed the screen, but this time it appeared to be in front of the truck.
I attempted to look from one side to the other, but no matter where I turned my eyes, the screen remained in front of them. The distance to the screen remained constant and I reached out my hand to try to touch it.
My friend, Nikolai, who was watching these antics from the cab of the truck, later asked me why I moved my hands.
The screen remained in front of me for the duration of the contact.
However, the inscriptions which appeared on the screen remained only as long as was necessary for me to understand each one and only then was the last inscription replaced by a new one.”
Only after Oleg understood what was being demanded of him, he carefully backed away from the object, constantly looking back toward the truck, and still sensing the same resistance.
He returned to the truck and tried to open the right door of the cab, in order to obtain some kitchen matches.
Despite the combined efforts of both men, they were not able to open the door for a considerable length of time.
Suddenly, the door was able to be opened quite easily. Oleg removed the box of matches from the truck’s cabin, together with a bottle of laboratory alcohol, which was used as an anti-freeze in the braking system.
Again asking Nikolai not to leave the truck, Oleg returned to the same place on the shoulder of the road where he had stood before.
However, this time he was able to move easily and he experienced none of the resistance he had encountered previously. He gathered some dry leaves into a pile, poured on some alcohol and ignited them.
Upon lifting his head, he observed that a passage appeared on the surface of the object, which extended into the interior, forming a corridor. At the distant end of this corridor, he could see a glimmering, bluish light.
“At first, I had the impression that a shadow was moving inside the corridor, but then I realized that something was moving in the corridor toward the opening.
When I finally realized what was occurring, I began stepping backward and fell into the ditch along the side of the road. I jumped back onto my feet and continued to observe what was happening.
Something approached the opening and I saw that it was a dark “mass,” which reminded me of a bag or sack.
As the “mass” moved, it swayed and bent from side to side, and its periphery was vague in appearance. At this moment, a shaft extended from the object, bent and descended to the surface of the ground.
The “mass” slid down the shaft, and while increasing in size, approached the fire of burning leaves. I was paralyzed by fear!
The “mass” stood by the fire for a moment and then began to return to the object, taking with it the box of matches. Returning along the same path, the “mass” disappeared in the corridor, together with the box of matches!
Only then did I finally succeed in extracting myself from the ditch. I returned to the road and glanced back at my truck again. The truck’s headlights blinded me, but I nevertheless could see the frightened face of Nikolai, which was pressed forward tightly against the windshield.”
An invitation to enter
For a long time, Oleg remained standing on the road, and was unable to recover his senses.
Realizing that he was witnessing an event that he might never again experience, he decided to wait and observe what would happen next.
He had a sudden wish to observe the ship more closely and immediately an invitation to enter the ship appeared on the screen, which remained visible in front of him. After a short pause, Oleg decided to approach the object.
The first thing that caught his attention was several round openings, approximately 300 mm in diameter, which at first he interpreted to be portholes.
Inside these openings, at a depth of 300–350 mm, a “grid” of intersecting lines, light grey in color, was visible. The central axis of the openings was displaced approximately 30 degrees from the plane formed by the surface of the object.
Oleg was also able to examine one of the support legs that the object rested on. The leg consisted of two parts, which were connected at an articulating joint.
The cross-section of each of the two parts of the leg was in the profile of a three-sided channel beam, with the lower part being smaller in diameter, such that it could be folded inside the upper portion.
On the bottom of the ship, recessed areas were clearly visible into which the legs could be retracted. However, because of poor illumination in the area where the leg was located, Oleg was not able to examine in detail the actual construction of the leg.
The far side of the object was resting on trees and was slanted toward Oleg, such that the lower portion of the opening was just above the level of his head. In order to establish the material that the object was made of, Oleg wanted to touch it with his hand.
A shaft came out of the portion of the object that was nearest to him. It appeared to be a round, smooth tube, with a diameter of approximately 50 mm.
The tube was cold and felt metallic. Then, events developed in the following manner:
“I had a desire to look inside, but since the door was above my head, I decided to grab hold of the tube and jump. The instant I grabbed the tube, I found myself standing just inside the opening. There was nothing there in the form of either steps or an elevator.
I did not feel any kind of external influence, but rather everything seemed to happen naturally, or by itself. I thought of the possibility of danger to me and decided to be as careful as possible.
At that instant, I received a message on the screen that I had nothing to be afraid of, and that I could enter.
Upon entering the corridor, I looked at the walls and noticed the absence of doors.
The corridor was significantly wider than the opening, the floor was flat, and the walls and ceiling formed an oval shape.
“I went along the corridor toward the shimmering light and felt that I was walking on a flat, metallic floor.
Somehow, I got the feeling that the surrounding walls did not have simply a decorative covering, but rather they were structural, and something was connected to them from the back side.
There clearly was some sort of strengthening device attached to them. I did not want to touch the walls, so I am unable to say exactly what it was that served to strengthen them.”
Masses of Lights
Oleg had to proceed along the corridor for approximately 20–25 feet. At the end of the corridor, he saw that it entered into a large hall with a diameter of approximately 60 feet.
On the periphery of the hall, there were five other entrances, similar in appearance to the one through which he had just entered. The ceiling in the hall was domed and it was emitting a soft, diffuse, blue light.
Between the other entrances and along the walls, there were panels of flashing lights. Each panel appeared to consist of five or six vertical elements.
To the left of the entrance through which Oleg had entered, two walls had no panels. In place of the panels, there were horizontal recesses in the walls, which were dark in color.
Also to the left, he observed two dark, vague spots that looked like bags, which at first were motionless, but then began to move toward him. The bags were identical to the “mass” which he had seen near the fire.
Oleg stopped, and stood motionless at the entrance to the hall.
“As soon as I looked around the hall, certain questions came to me, answers to which appeared immediately on the screen. But then I noticed that answers appeared in my head before I was able to read them on the screen.
Several answers were accompanied by demonstrations of the operation of those structures that interested me.
In such a manner, my question of the significance of the dark, horizontal recess in the wall off to my left was demonstrated to me.
The recess was a three- dimensional information screen, on which I was shown the interior of another sister ship, with the same moving ‘masses’ (during the demonstration, the two ‘masses’ in our ship were motionless).
Then, they showed a ship in space, among the stars, and at the end of the demonstration, they showed the presenter of a Soviet television program called Vremya.
“Off to my right side, there was an oval control panel, or desk, located about five feet from the wall, on which there were many switches and lights.
All of the illuminated buttons had a flat, square shape.
Some of them were elevated above the level of the control panel, and others were flush with the top of the panel. On the upper surface of the lamps, there were some symbols in the form of geometric figures, e.g. circles, triangles, quadrilateral figures, lines, etc., and combinations of the above.
The black switches on the panel were similar in appearance to toggle switches. There were no meters or scales on the control panel at all.”
In addition, Oleg described a long, straight divan, which stood next to the control panel, and a circular crack in the floor, which surrounded the central part of the hall.
The crack gave him reason to believe that the central part of the floor was able to rotate, allowing the control panel to be positioned in front of any of the vertical panels situated along the walls.
On the vertical panels, Oleg noticed the same types of lights that were on the control panel. Many of these lights were flashing. The entire interior of the hall was white in color, including the floor, and only from the ceiling shone soft, blue light.
Looking upward, Oleg tried to locate the source of the light, while simultaneously asking about the nature of the light. No answer to his question appeared on the screen.
Then, in response to his question, “Who are you?” and “Where are you from?” the dome in the hall slowly started to dim, and like in a planetarium, a star map appeared on the ceiling.
While Oleg was trying to find some familiar star system, one of the stars suddenly began to pulsate and descend slowly.
The dark, almost black starlit sky, combined with the pulsating star suspended over Oleg’s head, as well as with the flashing lights of the control and vertical panels, emitted enough light to permit him to see all elements in the entire interior of the spacecraft.
In a minute, the pulsating star slowly rose and the dome illuminated with the diffuse blue light.
Oleg was unable to carefully study and remember the star map shown to him. He asked where this pulsating star was located. They answered, “This is in your galaxy”.
“I asked question after question. The answers I received were heard in my head before I saw them on the screen.
I asked, ‘What kind of ship am I on now? What kind of propulsion system do you use to make it fly?’
In response I was told that this spacecraft was a scout ship and used electromagnetic fields to fly.
I was also told that they were studying our planet, which they need as a springboard to the future.
In response to my question ‘Do you have any connection with Bigfoot?’, they said, ‘Yes’ and added that they watch Bigfoot continuously.
As I was asking question after question, I suddenly noticed that a third ‘mass’ had appeared in the hall and then a fourth.
I watched a conversation take place between them and came to the understanding that the time for me to leave had arrived. My next thought was to leave something with them for a memory.
I took off my watch, and wanted to put it on the floor, but at that moment, I was told that they had a complete knowledge of the Earth and needed nothing.
For the first time during this visit, they asked me, ‘Why do I use a watch made in another country?’
“Then I asked, ‘Is it possible to see you once again?’ They said, ‘If you are in danger we will find you within 15 seconds’.
“Backing out a few steps from the hall, I turned and went along the corridor towards the opening.
As I came up to the opening of the spacecraft, I took hold of the tube by my right hand and I immediately found myself standing on the ground.
Not looking back, I went to the ditch and crossed over to the road, to the same place where I had stood a few minutes before.
When I looked back, I noticed that the tube and the opening had disappeared.
After a few seconds, I saw the outer rim begin to move in a clockwise direction.
The dome began to move approximately 30 seconds later in a counterclockwise direction and a luminescence surrounded the spacecraft.
As the revolutions became faster, the luminescence enveloped the spacecraft and it became a ball of light.”
Oleg noticed that the rotation of all parts of the craft and the luminescence was happening in absolute silence.
At this moment he saw on the road two more cars with their headlights on. For a few seconds this distracted his attention from the spacecraft.
The sound of the trees cracking made him turn and look at the spacecraft.
The ball of light slightly shifted position and slowly began to rise. Abruptly accelerating, the craft shot out of sight towards the north east.
His friend Nikolai got out of the truck and together with the occupants from the other vehicles, came up to Oleg. They asked him a lot of questions. Oleg was impressed by the experience but at the same time, was too moved to speak or fully realize all that had just happened.
His hands and legs were trembling.
When he got into his truck, he was unable to use the accelerator or to shift gears. He had to let his partner drive.
Oleg leaned back on the truck seat and looked at his watch, which he still had in his hand.
From the moment the truck had stopped, 20 minutes had passed. They still had a day and a half to get to Moscow, their destination. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE – Project Blue Book case dated October 24, 1968, when missile crews, control personnel and maintenance personnel observed a UFO in the vicinity of the base. The following is the tape between the air controllers and the B-52 crew with call sign JAG Three one.
At 0330 hours: The controllers received the information that there was a UFO 24 miles to the northwest. A B-52 jet bomber (JAG 31) flying at 2000 feet was on a calibration check and requests a clearance from radar personnel.
At 0334 “MIB (Minot) approach control does JAG 31 have clearance to WT fix at Flight Level 2000?”
JAG 31, Roger climb out on a heading of 290 climb and maintain 5000. Stand by for higher altitude. We’re trying to get it from center now.
At 0335, the controller asked, “And JAG 31 on your way out to the WT fix request you look out toward your one o’clock position for the next fifteen miles and see if you see any orange glows out there? “Roger, roger glows 31, “Someone is seeing UFOs again!” “Roger I see a…….. (Rest of transmission garbled)
At 0352, The controller then radioed, “Three one, the UFO is being picked up by weather’s radar also. Should be at our one o’clock position three miles now”
The pilot said, “We have nothing on our airborne radar and I’m in some pretty thick haze now and unable to see out that way.”
At 0358, the pilot then requested an instrument guided approach, and received instructions. The pilot called, and then the transmitter went dead, but they could hear instructions from the ground. The controller asked them to squawk ident,” which meant to use the aircraft’s transponder which would paint the controller’s radar with a large, glowing blip with the aircraft’s identification.
At 0400, the controller then radioed, “JAG 31 if you hear me squawk ident…JAG 31 ident observed. Cleared for the approach attempt. Contact on frequency 271 decimal three and you’re cleared for the low approach. They continued to have radio problems for another couple of minutes.
At 0402, they were able to communicate easily. The pilot said, “Our UFO was off to our left side when we started penetration.
“Roger, understand you did see something on your left side.” “We had a radar return at about a mile and a quarter, at nine o’clock position for about the time we left 200 to 14…”They discussed the troubles with the transmission and then, the controller asked, “Affirmative. I was wondering how far out did you see that UFO?”
“He was about one and a half miles off our left wing at 35 miles when we started in and stayed with us ’til about 10.”
“I wonder if that could have been your radio troubles?”
“I don’t know…. But that’s exactly when they started. “At 0413, Jag 31 are you observing any more UFOs? Negative on radar. We can’t see anything visually.
JAG 31, request you have someone report to base ops after you land.
What we have, then, was a group of sightings made by men on the ground, at the missile sites scattered around the base. There was radar sightings from ground and weather’s radar. There were visual sightings from the crew of the B-52, and an airborne radar sighting where the target traveled at 3,000 miles per hour.
Scope photographs were taken. There were sightings made by S.Sgt. Bond the FSC at Nov. Flight, S.Sgt. Smith at Oscar-1, Julelt, and Mike Flight Team and a number of men in widely scattered locations.
The object landed at location AA-43 and the entire observation lasted for 45 minutes. Fourteen other people in separate locations also reported the UFO. Security alarm were activated for both the outer and inner ring at the missile sites. When the guards arrived at the outer door it was open and the combination lock on the inner door had been moved.
Editors Note: The case in my estimation was never investigated properly. Project Blue Book personnel never sent a representative and the case was essentially written off despite the interest of several Strategic Air Command generals including 15th Air Force’s Major General Nichols.
The sighting was officially explained by on November 13, by Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla who wrote, “The following conclusions have been reached after a thorough study of the data submitted to Foreign Technology Division. The ground visual sightings appear to be of the star Sirius and the B-52, which was flying in the area.
The B-52 radar contact and the temporary loss of the UHF transmission could be attributed to a plasma similar to ball lightning. The air visual from the B-52 could be the star Vega, which was on the horizon at the time, or it could be a light on the ground, or possibly a plasma. No further investigation by the Foreign Technology Division is contemplated.
This is a classic Blue Book case where dozens of Air Force personnel who see B-52s and stars nightly have their testimony doubted. They know when they’ve seen a UFO. In this case the scientists doing the Condon report agreed that this was a real UFO.
The apparent damage to the missile site and disruption of B-52 radio transmissions was in my opinion a threat to primary nuclear offensive systems and should not have been trivialized. The records speak for themselves. This article was taken from Scientific Ufology written by Captain Kevin D. Randle USAFR.
It appears Quintanilla either did not care or had instructions to write off most of the sightings with any available excuse. I wonder why the reports were white washed, while the Air Force’s scientific advisor Alan Hynek was coming to the opposite conclusion that, UFOs were real? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Ufologists are at a loss: in the sky over El Paso, Texas, a driver recorded what appears to be a glowing triangular-shaped UFO. The object was moving completely silently.
The video shows the object flying at high speed by a mysterious “glowing triangle”, and surprised not only is this unique form, but also its bright backlight. In addition, the UFO moved soundlessly, that is, he could be mistaken for extraterrestrial aircraft.
Although there are many reports of triangle-shaped craft, they are rarely captured on any type of media. American researchers of extraterrestrial civilizations and the aliens are surprised by the capture of this type of flying craft.
Every year the aliens appear on the planet more often and are manifested more and more in an amazing way – what could it be?… Some observers carefully analyzed the material and verified its authenticity. Webmaster B J Booth of the UFO Casebook did note that it was unusual that the car seemed to pace the UFO so well.
Videographer statement on UFO
Driving to work and noticed a strange light in a triangular shape toward the horizon. Took my cell phone and took pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy s8.
I was on my way to work the morning of August 31, 2018 at 6:25 in the morning. I stared at the sunrise as usual because I have to stop a red light, right before I get on the freeway to work.
After a few minutes I glanced to the right and saw a glowing triangle and thought it was weird. So I took several pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy S8.
It’s still new to me and noticed afterwards that the phone does an amazing thing automatically… it stabilized the video on its own. Yes, I did zoom in on the object and luckily it worked perfectly. Even if it’s explainable, it is an interesting video. pictures.
“I had just come out of the front door around 7.15pm to go to pick up my wife who works at Glenfield General Hospital. I looked up and saw some strange strobe lighting in the sky. It wasn’t the height of the normal commercial aircraft going over – nowhere near that height, more the height of helicopters as they’re flying over.” He said that in the clear night sky he could easily make out a triangular shape with lights on each corner and there were red and green strobe lights splashing down the side. It was far too big to be a drone – it looked at least four times the size of helicopters that fly over. It looked a foot wide at arms length – probably no more than 5,000 feet up. It was travelling west towards the motorway.” Nigel watched the craft moving across the sky for two minutes before it vanished behind a block of flats , so he moved into a car parking area near his home where he followed it again for three minutes before it also was obscured by houses. It was while in the car park that he spotted a helicopter flying towards the scene. He thought the sighting was over so drove off in his car for the five minute journey to collect his wife from Glenfield General Hospital but spotted it again from his car as he drove into the hospital car park where he then counted three helicopters. He watched the triangle for two minutes flying over the hospital before it again vanished behind buildings. He picked up his wife Emma and immediately told her: “I think I’ve just seen a UFO. And as we were coming out I pointed out one of the helicopters that was still flying around.” He said that as a bench mark when they got home he and his wife saw a commercial aircraft fly over from the same direction at a much greater height. ”It was flying ten times as fast as the object I saw” he said “The airliner had gone out of view in ten seconds” Nigel told me that as a child he’d had a sighting of a UFO from his school playing field which was “a very large cigar shaped object. “ Then a couple of years ago while driving and waiting at traffic lights he saw “what appeared to be an airliner flying over but it had no wings” How did he feel when he saw the triangle? ”Probably more excited than anything – and inquisitive. I didn’t feel nervous or anything like that” he said. He added: “I had my phone camera with me but in my mind I was too busy taking in detail watching it rather than getting the camera on and knowing how dark it was. I was just gobsmacked as to what was flying over me” He said he thinks some UFOs may be military top secret aircraft. But he added “I don’t think we can be the only life in the universe. I’m a strong believer that we are being visited. I think as a species we are in our infancy in the grand scheme of things. “ About his triangle sighting he said “I don’t know what to think – whether it was military or other. But what I saw was completely unusual and something I’ve never seen before”. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While riding in the car with my mom at around sundown when over the tops of the trees I see what I thought to be a helicopter coming out of the lake behind the tree line and had a light on each blade but they were moving unusually slow and as we got closer it rose up over the tree line and hovered across the highway. At that point I realized it was a disk/saucer not a helicopter and the light were in the middle on the outer edge and as it began to move the faster the light moved around it. They were mounted to almost as if the entire middle was spinning while the top and bottom were stationary. It hovered across the hwy and over a church. It changed directions and took off to space/ high altitude in a outward and upward angle and it took one to two seconds to go from a large disc to a speck and it seemed to leave a trail but it looked like a light trail that only lasted a couple seconds. This experience has changed my life I was able to see something extraordinary that at that age is unexplainable and it is burned in my memory like it happened yesterday. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
We had been visiting Jerome, AZ and drove up to scenic overlook on Hwy 89A above Jerome.
When we exited the car, I walked up to wall at NE end of parking lot. I saw a flash of light ahead of me and asked if anyone saw it. I was only one out of 4 who did.
My wife was taking a photo with her IPhone 7. When she looked at the photo, it showed what I thought I had seen. There is a flash near the wall, that moves to my right, then flashes higher above my right vision.
Next frame shows a 4 sided flying object in only one frame of the â€œlive frameâ€ and then is gone.
We have photo of it. I now believe we saw a flying ship due to the photo.
I was outside taking out the trash and saw a strange light in the sky. I had my phone on me, so I called my wife who was in the house and told her to get outside.
She was standing by the garage and I was walking back towards the house (about 90 feet). My neighbor was also outside.
It appeared to be moving towards the ground, vertically towards the area where we live. Then prior to it disappearing, it moved back towards the sky.
It was bright and disk-shaped, no sounds were present.
It stayed in one place for a few seconds and then would move erratically in a chaotic pattern, but with no recognizable signature to identify it by any means.
It was not an aircraft, because immediately as this was happening we heard two jets (aircraft of jet-like origin) moving towards the object.
We tried to videotape this with the camera phone but it was too dark, and would not be sufficient for what we saw.
After we heard the jets coming towards the area of the object, it shot across the sky and disappeared. The jets continued to make loud noise, but soon after were gone as well. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On a plane bound to Greece, a man has videotaped an unknown flying object which was flying alongside the jet. The footage was shared by passenger Kerry Flores on Youtube and has been seen by many over the world-wide video site. Comments from viewers included: “Incredible video catch. I’m thinking (sic) you got a UFO,” was one comment. While others weren’t convinced and said that it was a trail of smoke from another plane.
Either way, I’m pretty sure we can all agree that we’re not too keen on weird things flying anywhere close to us at 30,000 feet? I’m not sure about you, but if I spotted this next to my window while on a plane, I would have probably panicked a bit.
