47-year-old Mauno Talasa was eating breakfast with his wife, Martta, at their farmhouse in the village of Saapunki in Finland one January morning in 1971 at a little after 6 am. It was while they were eating that they noticed a bright light heading toward them through their kitchen window. They would recall how the glowing object appeared to be at low altitude and was not moving particularly fast.
Perhaps even more unnerving and bizarre in equal measure, was the fact that the object would land directly outside their kitchen window. Now, with the object being in such close proximity, the brightness was such that it almost blinded the married couple to look at it directly. What’s more, the entire area in the immediate vicinity was now awash from the light blue glow.
The pair continued to watch for several more moments. Then, without any warning, the object took off directly upwards into the sky. It disappeared from sight several moments later. As it did so, the electricity supply would cut out for several moments.
The pair would then go about their normal daily chores, attempting to put the bizarre episode out of their minds. However, when daylight began to fade, they would notice a strange indention in the snow – exactly at the same place where the glowing object had landed. It appeared to be three indentions in total. And what’s more, they were in a very distinct triangular shape. Even more intriguing, part of the snow in the middle of this triangle appeared to have melted.
When the snow melted away, the pair would make an even stranger discovery. The grass underneath appeared to have changed color to a sickly grey-blue. Mr. Talasa would take a sample of the earth in this particular spot.
The following day, he would visit the local newspaper offices. The newspaper would begin to investigate the incident and would soon discover that the Talasas were not the only ones to witness the bizarre events. Not only did their immediate neighbors witness the strange glowing object land and take off from the Talasas’ property, but several other witnesses, some up to 3 miles away, also saw the mysterious object.
There were also several other intriguing details to note. For example, the object could definitely not be explained away like a balloon of any kind due to its movements into a relatively strong wind. What’s more, mainstream scientists who examined the soil samples would suggest something along the lines of a meteorite or a lightning strike to have caused the change in the elements of the soil.
However, we can eliminate the meteor suggestion straight away. Given the number of witnesses, a meteorite would have been easily recognizable to most if not all of them as such. Furthermore, the first sighting in the village was at 5:58 am with the last at 6:15 am with that of the Talasas. Once more, even those who are not experts in weather conditions realize that lightning strikes do not last 17 minutes.
Indeed, as insinuated by the report in The Scandinavian Newsletter report, the scientific establishment appeared to be more concerned with “reputation”, and perhaps even funding we might add, then the genuine truth of such bizarre but obviously real incidents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
As 77-year-old Alfred Burtoo was fishing the Basingstoke Canal in the peaceful early hours of the morning of August 12, 1983, he saw a brilliant light descend from the sky and settle on the nearby towpath.
Thinking it must be a helicopter from the nearby MOD base, he took no notice, and poured himself a cup of tea from his Thermos flask. Then his dog, Tiny, began whining furiously and two figures emerged from the darkness.
“They were about four foot high, dressed in pale green coveralls from head to foot,” Burtoo told reporters. “And they had helmets of the same colour with a visor that was blacked out.”
The strangers gestured to Burtoo to accompany them. Calmly setting down his cup of tea, the intrepid pensioner follow them along the towpath towards a saucer-shaped craft. “I was 77 and didn’t have much to lose,” he later explained.
Inside the Saucer
Climbing up a set of steps into the saucer, Burtoo discovered that the ceiling was so low he had to stoop. He found himself inside a black, metallic octagonal chamber, which smelt slightly of decaying meat.
“I did not see any signs of nuts or bolts, nor did I see any seams where the object had been put together,” he recalled. “What did interest me most of all was a shaft that rose up from the floor to the ceiling. The shaft was about four feet in circumference, and on the right-hand side stood two forms similar to those that walked along the towpath with me.”
One of the beings told the old man to stand beneath an orange light, which appeared to scan him for a few minutes. “What is your age?” asked the entity, in a “sing-song” voice which sounded like “a mixture of Chinese and Russian”. When he replied that he was 78, it declared: “You can go. You are too old and infirm for our purposes.” Bemused, Burtoo climbed down from the saucer and returned to his fishing spot.
“The first thing I did… was to pick up my cold cup of tea and drink it,” he recalled. “And then I heard this whining noise, just as if an electric generator was starting up, and this thing lifted up then took off at a very high speed.”
Apparently unfazed by his bizarre encounter, Burtoo resumed the task at hand. “I got into what I had come out for – the fishing!” Despite his rather curt reception, he later declared his nocturnal adventure to have been “the greatest experience of my life”.
Alfred Burtoo is not alone in having apparently failed an alien medical test. American abductee Carl Higdon believed that he had been rejected as a guinea pig for a hybrid breeding program because his captors discovered that he had had a vasectomy.
Likewise, Luis Oswald, an elderly Brazilian abducted in 1979 by beings who claimed to be from “a small galaxy near Neptune”, reported that she had endured a lengthy examination then been told she was “of no use”. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At approximately 9pm this evening, my fiancé and I were relaxing on the couch watching television. The lights in the house were off. When we watch television we are facing one small and one large picture window that looks out onto our wooded yard. Our house is tucked into a forested lot so that even the headlights from the very occasional passing car going to and from a neighbors house is not seen from our living room. There are very few houses on our road.
As we watched our show at least 3 bright orange flashes of light flew from the right side of our house in the air the whole time and moved across to the left. Even though it only lasted a few seconds it was clear that the light originated and continued in the air, though maybe not tree top height. The trees around our property average about 20-30 feet high. From where the flashes originated there is nothing but wooded property and our garage.
The flashes seemed to be no more than 6-10 feet off the ground but grew in height. My fiancée thought something in the garage had exploded. However, there was never any sound at all. I thought the lights to the truck had flashed a few times.
My fiancé ran out onto our front deck to look and see what it was but there was nothing there. Nothing was out of place.
The lights were bright orange and clear quick flashes with 3-5 of them successively within the span of 3-5 seconds. They moved from right to left completely silently and were so bright they lit up our front yard (which is about the size of the parking lot of a small business) and all the trees in our yard. To give you an idea of how big our yard is, we could probably park 30-40 cars in our front yard alone.
I don’t know if it’s at all related or not but last night (the night before this happened) around 3:30 in the morning, our dog who sleeps on her bed in the living room, came into our bedroom and alerted to something in the living room or at the front door. This is out of character for her. Just as she woke me, I heard a very slight sound but I could not pinpoint the sound. It seemed to resonate throughout the house. It was a very slight but deep sound. You could liken it to a (Wah-Wah-Wah-wah) sound. I could feel this sound just as much as I could hear it and I can’t explain it better than that. It lasted for just as long as it took me to walk the few feet from our bedroom to the living room. Then it was just gone. It just immediately stopped.
I have a really tough time falling asleep last night. The dog acted as if there was someone at the door and I felt like there was too but our motion sensor lights weren’t on and I saw no one. I felt the weird need to sleep in my f! our year olds bed with him at that point. At this point, my healthy ((xx-years)) old dog would not leave my side.
Suddenly, my dog collapsed onto the floor and laid there with her eyes open but not blinking. She would not respond to my voice or my touch. She would not even respond to my commands. This scared me. About two or three minutes later she came to again and acted totally normal again. It seemed as if she had been drugged but of course she had not.
I am a college educated ((deleted)). I also hold a degree in ((deleted)). I do believe that we are not the only intelligent life out there. However, like most people I have never encountered anything personally that would give me that absolute undeniable truth. I’m not going to say that this experience is that undeniable truth.
To be quite honest, I don’t and I can’t know what this was that we saw but it is a very strange experience and it happened just as I have told you. NOTE: The above real image is from a similar sighting in California.
The crew consisted of veteran Captain Kenju Terauchi, co-pilot Takanori Tamefuji, and flight engineer Yoshio Tsukuba.
On November 16, 1986, laden with wine, JAL1628 took off from Paris and flew the first leg of the trip, to Reykjavik. The next day, they continued, flying over Greenland and then across northern Canada without event.
Just after they crossed into Alaska, at 5:09 PM local time, Anchorage Air Traffic Control contacted them on the radio to report initial radar contact. The Anchorage flight controller asked them to turn 15 degrees to the left and head for a point known as Talkeetna on a heading of 215 degrees. They were at 35,000 feet and traveling at a ground speed of about 600 mph.
At about 5:11 PM local time, Captain Terauchi noticed the lights of some sort of aircraft about 2000 feet below and 30 degrees to the left front of them. He decided that the aircraft was probably an American jet fighter from nearby Eielson or Elmendorf Air Force Bases patrolling Alaskan airspace, so he ignored them at first.
However, after a few minutes, he noticed that the lights were keeping pace with his own aircraft, which would be an unusual thing for patrolling jets to do.
It was about seven or so minutes since we began paying attention to the lights (when), most unexpectedly, two spaceships stopped in front of our face, shooting off lights. The inside cockpit shined brightly and I felt warm in the face.
Terauchi said that it was his impression that the two objects he had seen below them minutes before had suddenly jumped in from of him. The craft, one above the other, kept pace with the 747 for several minutes, moving in unison with an odd rocking motion.
After about seven minutes, they changed to a side-by-side arrangement.
Terauchi said that the “amber and whitish” lights were like flames coming out of multiple rocket exhaust ports arranged in two rectangular rows on the craft. He felt that they fired in a particular sequence to stabilize the craft, much like the small maneuvering thrusters on the Space Shuttle.
He also reported seeing sparks like a fire when using gasoline or carbon fuel.
Co-pilot Tamefuji described the lights as “Christmas assorted” lights with a “salmon” color. He said: I remember red or orange, and white landing light, just like a landing light. And weak green, ah, blinking. He also described the lights as pulsating slowly. They became stronger, became weaker., became stronger, became weaker, different from strobe lights.
The lights were “swinging” in unison as if there were “very good formation flight… close” of two aircraft side by side.
He described the appearance of the lights as similar to seeing “night flight head-on traffic,” where it is only possible to see the lights on an approaching aircraft and “we cannot see the total shape.”
He said, I’m sure I saw something. It was clear enough to make me believe that there was an oncoming aircraft.
Flight engineer Tsukuba, who sat behind the copilot, did not have as good a view of the lights. He first saw them “through the L1 window at the 11 o’clock position,” and he saw “clusters of lights undulating.”
These clusters were “made of two parts… shaped like windows of an airplane.”
He emphasized that “the lights in front of us were different from town lights.”
He described the colors as white or amber.
Tamefuji decided to call Anchorage Air Traffic Control, and for the next thirty minutes the 747 and AARTCC were in constant contact regarding the UFO.
During this time, Captain Terauchi asked Tskububa to hand him a camera so that he could attempt to take a photograph of the lights. However, Terauchi was unfamiliar with the camera and could not get it to operate. Tsukuba also could not get his camera to operate due to problems with the auto-focus and finally gave up trying to take a photo.
At this point they began experiencing some radio interference and were asked by Anchorage to change frequencies. Terauchi later said that Anchorage kept asking him about clouds in the immediate area:
They asked us several times if there were clouds near our altitude. We saw thin and spotty clouds near the mountain below us, no clouds in mid-to-upper air, and the air current was steady.
Soon after the exchanges about clouds, the objects flew off to the left. Terauchi said later: “There was a pale white flat light in the direction where the ships flew away, moving in a line along with us, in the same direction and same speed and at the same altitude as we were.”
Terauchi decided to see whether they could see anything on the 747’s own radar:
“I thought it would be impossible to find anything on an aircraft radar if a large ground radar did not show anything, but I judged the distance of the object visually and it was not very far.
“I set the digital weather radar distance to 20 (nautical) miles, radar angle to horizon (i.e., no depression angle). There it was on the screen. A large green and round object had appeared at 7 or 8 miles (13 km to 15 km) away, where the direction of the object was.
” We reported to Anchorage center that our radar caught the object within 7 or 8 miles in the 10 o’clock position. We asked them if they could catch it on ground radar, but it did not seem they could catch it at all.”
At 5:25:45, after spending two minutes looking, the military radar at Elmendorf Regional Operational Control Center also picked up something. The ROCC radar controller reported back to the AARTCC that he was getting some “surge primary return.” By this he meant an occasional radar echo unaccompanied by a transponder signal.
As the 747 neared Fairbanks:
“The lights (of the city) were extremely bright to eyes that were used to the dark. (The cockpit lights had been turned off to eliminate window reflections of internal lights.) We were just above the bright city lights and we checked the pale white light behind us.
” Alas! There was a silhouette of a gigantic spaceship.
“We must run away quickly! Anchorage Center.”
The JAL1628 is requesting a change of course to right 45 degrees.” It felt like a long time before we received permission.”
Just after the plane turned to the right, the AARTCC controller called the Fairbanks Approach Radar controller to find out whether or not the short-range radar had a target near the JAL. The approach radar reported no target other than JAL1628.
The plane came out of the turn and flew toward Talkeetna at an altitude of 31,000 ft, with the object still following.
At about 5:40, a United Airlines passenger jet took off from Anchorage and headed north to Fairbanks. The AARTCC controller decided to ask the UA pilot to try to see the object that was following the JAL flight.
The UA pilot said he would look when he got closer. The controller asked the JAL flight to stay at 31,000 ft, and the UA flight to stay at 29,000 ft. He then directed the UA flight to turn some more so that the planes would pass within five miles of one another.
As the United Airlines jet got closer, the UFO apparently dropped behind, allowing the JAL plane to get far ahead. The United pilot asked the AARTCC to have the JAL pilot flash the headlights on the JAL aircraft so he could locate the plane.
At 5:49:45 the JAL pilot did that. At this point the planes were about 25 miles apart.
When the planes were about 12 miles apart, the UA plane reported seeing the JAL plane and nothing else. But by this time the UFO had apparently disappeared, not being seen by JAL1628, either.
At about 5:51, the AARTCC requested that a military TOTEM flight in the area also fly toward the JAL plane for a look. During the next several minutes TOTEM viewed the JAL plane, but couldn’t see any other traffic. JAL1628 proceeded to Anchorage and landed at 6:20 PM. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On the 15th of July in Charleston, South Carolina, yet another sighting of a triangular aircraft with glowing white lights at each corner would occur, although it would not come to light until three years later.
The witness was a passenger in a car that was returning her and a friend (who was driving) home from a nearby waffle house on the night in question. It was shortly after they turned on to a long stretch of road when the witness’s friend noticed and pointed out three white light in the shape of a triangle hovering or moving slowly above the treetops that accompanied the roadside.
The witness would recall that the lights were bright “but not glows” and appeared as though they were the end points of a solid triangular-shaped object. The witness would further describe the object as having the shape of a “nacho chip with a light at each of its points”. What’s more, and like many other witnesses to similar crafts, she found it bizarre that such a large object was seemingly moving so slowly. After they observed the strange object for several moments, they both realized that it was completely silent.
Most bizarre, though, was the beam-like searchlight that emanated from the middle underside of the object. It would move “quickly and erratically, but smoothly” over the woodland below as if searching for something among the trees.
They would watch the events unfold for several minutes. However, when they went to turn their vehicle around, the object had disappeared by the time they had done so. The witness would question whether it was a discreet “target-practice” for an experimental military craft as opposed to something extraterrestrial, although she didn’t dismiss the possibility. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On 03-28-06, the UFO Casebook received a photograph from a reader. The 2005 photograph purportedly shows an alien being partially hidden in some brush. I enlarged the area in question, and enhanced the area which revealed in fairly good detail what does appear to be that of a being certainly not of human origin. Along with the photo, which is a really nice one I must say, a few details were given. I have written the sender asking for more information regarding the taking of the picture. If and when I receive this info, I will post it to this page. (B J)
Here are the details that I have at this time.
We didn’t really take the picture for the alien, we realized afterwards that it was there. We were over the Arctic Circle, and we were alone, no one within 50 kilometers. We were traveling in a snowmobile. What you see as the main subject of the photograph is an iced over river.
Updated Information: 04-06-06 After sending a request to sender for more information, the UFO Casebook received the following information on April 6.
I don’t really have much more details on that day. I can say that it was a snowmobile ride with some friends, we were 200 km up to north circle, between Sverige and Norway. The nearest city was Kiruna. The photo was taken with a Nikon 5400 with no zoom and it was around midday, of the 20th of December 2005. Nothing strange happened, it was -20°C, and silence all around with some wild animals. That’s all, we realized there was something showing in the photos some months later when a friend of ours kept saying there was something strange in that brush.
A California witness at Lake Silverwood recalled a UFO incident from 1983 when a boomeranged-shaped object passed overhead, according to testimony in Case 95355 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The incident occurred at 2 a.m. on May 15, 1983.
“Me and two friends were going catfish fishing at Lake Silverwood,” the witness stated. “We were off road going to the south side of the lake and entered by the north side by the dam. We were on a switch back and as we came around a curve our view was northeast looking out over the valley and saw a bright white light way out in the distance many miles away.” The witness later Googled the location and discovered “it was coming from” Area 51. “When we came around the next curve on the switch back it was just about on top of us. My buddy yelled stop and turn off your engine. My cousin had a UFO burn out his electrical system on his car. I did and turned off my lights too. We jump out of my 4×4 and the three of us stood in front of my truck and were all looking at this thing as it came towards us.”
The witness described the object. “We noticed that the light was on the bottom of the object and it was huge. The front of it looked like wraparound sunglasses. We were able to see into it and counted that it was four decks thick. We were all talking to each other what we were seeing. We could see columns from deck to deck. On the most upper deck we could see humanoid figures moving about. We were like saying things like look at the guy looking out. Is he driving it or what? It looks as if someone was shining a light up at it like the one that was seen in China.” As the object continued to pass directly the group, it blacked out a good portion of the sky. “Everything around us seemed to be crackling. I could feel my insides humming. Thinking of it now I’m glad I turned off my truck. As we were looking at the back of the craft there were four boxes that were louvered and shimmered like a road on a hot summer day. The boxes looked like a TV when there’s no channels on, black and gray from top to bottom of the craft. I had heard of small flying wings being seen on the Hudson in New York around the same time. This came to me later on in life. Four decks thick. Four boxes. Sixteen smaller craft would fit in this no problem. I worked in aircraft after this and was in the world’s largest building by volume in Everett, Washington. It wouldn’t fit in there. The ceiling would collapse with all the structure having to be removed to fit it. That’s how large this craft was. Also, later on in life, the Phoenix Lights happened. Yep, now we’re getting there, but what we saw was larger. I’m telling this story now and can still see it in my mind’s eye. It changed my life in many ways – even what I went to as a career, aircraft structures final assembly. Did the B-1-B bomber and all three aircraft that was built at the Everett facility. The direction I figured it was going was towards Norton Air Force Base.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A witness in Poços de Caldas, Brazil captured a video of a strange looking object he cannot identify. The witness reported the object to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) along with still images and video. The sighting took place on August 6, 2017. The witness claims to have noticed two bright star-like objects moving across the sky, even though it was during the day and still light out.
Here is the witness report, verbatim:
It was still day, and I saw two bright and strong lights, looking like stars. But no other star appeared, and it was too soon for them to appear. They moved together in a constant trajectory, not fast, not slow… and in the same direction (SE to NE), and really far away. Constant brightness all the time. One of them was bigger and brighter, and other smaller, but still bright. This small one disappeared suddenly, but the bigger kept on moving. They passed over right above me. Strange because it was to UFOs, very bright all the time… (sun reflection not the case). I took a picture of a plane passing by, with maximum close up from my camera. The same close with I took the pictures. I changed ISO, so some pictures were darkened. And at the end of the mp4, there is the video.
Detailed Description of the UFO Event: I have a bunch of still photos and also videos of a storm off shore in Cape May, New Jersey that are interesting. My adult daughter was jogging on the beach and noticed some weird things going on with regard to that storm, and phoned me. My wife and I stepped out on the balcony of our vacation rental unit and checked out the night sky and caught on my cell phone video camera something that appeared to be 3 lights in a triangular formation, with a single flying light not far behind it. I had always meant to do something with these photos and videos which were saved only on my cell phone. I had a recent incident in which the charging port on my phone had broken and I was considering buying a new cell phone. Not wanting to lose these 2016 videos and photo images, I learned how to upload them to a drop box, and then create a link. I have no idea what this thing was but thought it made sense to put my digital evidence in the hands of professionals. Let’s start with the primary video of interest and if it seems as interesting and inexplicable to you as it does to me, give me a call. I don’t know how to create a file from the drop box link.
This case was investigated by Assistant State Director Ken Pfeifer. The case was classified as unknown.
Hello This has been bugging me since I seen this and I have to get it out there on file . I was staying with my wife at her aunts old cabin in Wells Vermont . We have been going there for the past twenty yrs together every yr and I have never in my life seen anything like this any where in the world or on tv . It was a nice beautiful night with a slight chill In the air . I was out first night there for the week and I stayed up late to enjoy the nice view of the stars . I have witnessed many aircraft in flight there and at numerous air shows . I know what a plane, helocopter, rocket and hot air balloon look like and this was nothing even close to any of them . It was around 4:00 am and there was absolutely no sound except a small plane way out in the distance just north east of my position flying towards my direction . I knew this cause I could see his front lights and red and green marker lights blinking away very easily and say yes that is a small propeller gas powered airplane . As I am standing there enjoying the start of our vacation I am facing dead east looking out at the lake when I see my shadow cast in front of me like there is a police car with its spot light on me directly . As I turn around I am expecting to see a car and what I see has blown me away ever since . As I turned around I had to shield my eyes since it was so big and so bright I could hardly look at it with my hands In front of my eyes looking just over my shoulder I could see what looked like a giant 2 story house sized very ultra bright ball of blue/green more blueish solid light all around the object . It was only maybe 50-100 feet above the trees and roughly 2 properties to the left of the cabin . It was moving over the trees and water roughly 30-50 miles an hr over the landscape and it went from dead west behind me to straight across the small side of the lake eastern till it lifted with the landscape across the other side and disappeared on the other side of the cliff face that faces the cabin . Everyone I tell this to says I am crazy and I watch to many ancient aliens show . But god as my witness I have never seen anything like this nor do I want to again . I just want someone to tell me what the heck I saw cause in my eyes it should not have ever been there and it was to close for comfort . I hope I never and I hope I do see it again someday . I was unable to get a pic or video cause I was to lost in what was happening at the time and grabbing my phone from inside was not an option to get it in time . Please if anyone else has seen this I would love to know what I have seen . NOTE: The above image is real but from another investigation.
This case is under investigation by Sate Director Ken Pfeifer of MUFON Vermont.
Location: Near Latacunga, Ecuador Date: September 3, 1966 Time: sunset
Manuel Pereira, 15 and Jose Sotuyo, 14 were walking along a path high in the mountains when they saw strange lights maneuvering in the sky. Manuel frantically signaled the UFO with his flashlight, using International Morse Code he sent the following message:
“Friend, please land.” He repeated this message several times. A few seconds later they heard a faint whirring sound and the UFO descended to within a few feet from where the boys were standing. The craft settled just above the ground and three long tripod-like supports telescoped downward. The glowing of the UFO dimmed until it was a dull white light, and then a ramp opened and lowered to the ground. Then three tiny man-like figures emerged from the craft and began to walk stiffly down the ramp. The frightened boys were tempted to run but remained there. Just then they heard a loud voice that sounded strangely metallic speak: “Do not fear us. Stay and talk.” Manuel and Jose, speechless, nodded. They stared in utter astonishment as the three little men in their suits of shiny brass-like material came toward them. A voice that seemed to come from all directions at once, asked them: “What are you?” The boys asked the little men where they were from but the question was ignored. For nearly an hour the questioning continued. The boys answered whatever the voice asked but whenever they asked a question they got no reply. Finally the voice inquired, “Would you like to come aboard our space craft?” Both boys agreed to go inside. The little men in their gleaming brass-colored uniforms and pear shaped helmets led the way up the ramp. They kept turning around as if looking to see if the boys were following. Their features in the helmets were obscured because of a cloudy vapor, which they seemed to be breathing so the boys had no idea what they really looked like. When they entered the craft they were surprised at the roominess of the interior. All around the craft were hexagon shaped sections like small cubicles. Tiny lights and buttons were to be seen on a console panel in the exact center. They saw no other little beings, although they had a strong feeling that other eyes were closely observing them. The little men asked the boys if they would like to go with them, and added that they would not be harmed. But the boys replied that their parents would be worried. After several more questions by the little men, the craft began to make a loud humming sound and the voice announced that it was time to leave, that perhaps they would visit them again. Manuel asked for a souvenir from them to prove their encounter. There was a peculiar high pitched humming noise and one of the little men came forward and held a small cylinder in his hand. They were told to take it as a token, that it was a small hand held light, that whenever they wished for the light to come on, they merely had to squeeze it. The little men demonstrated. There was a brilliant light form the lens. Manuel removed its own flashlight and gave it to the little men, as an exchange. Several minutes later on the ground the boys watched the saucer-shaped object rise up noiselessly and vanish in a wink. Just as the boys began to hurry toward their homes several helicopters swooped down from the night skies overhead, playing searchlights over the area. At the same time three Army jeeps came down the path at breakneck speed. They were interrogated numerous times by the military personnel and their strange flashlight device was examined and then taken away. Manuel Pereira and Jose Sotuyo vanished from their homes about a week before Christmas 1966, and were never seen nor heard from again. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A fireball exploded above the Bering Sea at about noon local time on December 18, 2018 from an asteroid with 10 times the energy of Hiroshima’s atomic bomb at a speed of 32 km/s (20 miles per second). The event went unobserved until military satellites spotted light the explosion released. The fireball was also spotted by Peter Brown at Canada’s University of Western Ontario, who announced his finding on Twitter. Brown looked at data taken from around 16 different infrared stations that were originally set up to listen for covert nuclear tests. The BBC reports that it’s the biggest blast since the meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk in Russia in 2015—and the second-biggest in 30 years. It was 10 meters across, and the energy released as it exploded in Earth’s atmosphere was equivalent to 173 kilotons of TNT.That’s about 10 times bigger than the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima in 1945. “That was 40% the energy release of Chelyabinsk, but it was over the Bering Sea so it didn’t have the same type of effect or show up in the news,” said Kelly Fast, near-Earth objects observations program manager at Nasa. “That’s another thing we have in our defence, there’s plenty of water on the planet.” Lindley Johnson, NASA’s first-ever Planetary Defense Officer,, told the BBC an explosion of this size takes place about two or three times every 100 years.

Gordon Cooper Witnesses UFO On Last Solo Space Mission While Orbiting The Earth!
We have looked previously at the efforts of former NASA astronaut, Gordon Cooper in having the US government release all of their UFO files to the public. Cooper had witnessed several UFOs while working as a terrestrial pilot at various US military bases around the world. However, on 15th May 1963, during what was the last single-person space mission in the Earth’s orbit, Cooper himself would witness a UFO while he was in flight during his final pass of the planet. As he was making the pass, he would notify the tracking station near Perth, Australia that there was “greenish object” heading towards his Mercury capsule. What’s more, the tracking station would confirm the object on their radar equipment. This meant that far from being a trick of the light, the object was most definitely solid. Reporters would hear of the sighting through the National Broadcast Company, as was standard procedure. However, despite this, reporters were told that Cooper would not answer questions on the issue. Perhaps even more damning, for NASA, and certainly lending credibility to other similar reports are his words from a late-1990s interview with J.L. Fernando. Cooper would state:
For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why?
Cooper would further elaborate on an event in Florida that he himself witnessed when US authorities “did just about everything” they could to keep the incident out of the public domain. He would claim that flames in “four indentions left by a flying object” that had landed in the middle of the field were covered-up. Furthermore, so were the witnesses, all of whom saw several strange “beings” leave the craft to gather up soil samples and study the make-up of the ground. Then, as if nothing out of the ordinary was taking place, these entities returned to their craft which “disappeared at enormous speed”. The reaction and response to Cooper’s claims was, by and large, that he was an American hero who, due to old age and possibly as a result of his testing planes at the absolute edge of their capabilities, was now a little “confused” about what he did and didn’t see (something Cooper would refute right until his death in 2004).
Location: Burragorang Valley, New South Wales, Australia Date: early 1953 Time: daytime
One camper, who happened to penetrate that valley was surprised to come across a large “saucer nest” in a forest clearing. Yet the most startling incident occurred when a lone camper, Brian Dogherty, while camped under the stars one night, saw a large, dark “saucer-shaped” craft moving over the surrounding tree tops. As he got to his feet he heard a loud “crunching” sound as the craft landed in a nearby patch of gum forest above the gully he was camped in. It was a long time before he got back to sleep and by the time he awoke and went in search of the landing site of the mystery craft, it had lifted off and flown elsewhere. All that Brian found was an area of trees and shrubbery that had been broken and flattened.
That same year a hiker, Peter Suttor, happened to penetrate an area beneath the cliffs on the south side of the valley one day, which it turned out, was in the vicinity of two “saucer nests” discovered earlier by campers. From the protection of shrubbery he saw at a distance, several man-sized forms clothed in what he later described as “spacesuits”. The mysterious beings appeared to be searching the ground with strange metal devices, apparently collecting soil and rock samples.
It was not long before Peter told of his strange encounter to friends, including a UFO group at Fairfield. In turn, the incident was related by a member of the group to a friend in the Liverpool Army Camp. This soldier, and two others from Ingleburn, while on leave, decided that they would go on a camping trip to investigate the area of Peter Suttor’s strange sighting. Setting off from Warragamba Township, they attempted to follow the approximate route taken by Peter. It is believed that they penetrated several kilometers inland to the approximate area where the strange figures had been seen. However, it was beyond a certain point that all trace of them was lost. Despite searchers efforts, like the earlier servicemen two years before, all trace of these soldiers was lost. Furthermore, all further mention of their disappearance was soon lost in the official wall of silence that descended on the whole matter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Have seen the same pair of UFOs on the nights of Friday, March 15th, Sunday, March 17th and Monday, March 18. Both are always near the same location and around the same time, which seems to be from about 11 p.m. to after 12:30 a.m. At first glance I thought they were stars twinkling, but soon realized that wasn’t possible as both were too wide, oddly shaped and flashing various colors. Have been visiting my mother in my hometown of Redlands for the last several weeks. On the aforementioned nights, I spotted the vessels from her backyard. The first craft seemed to be about 75 feet off the ground and hovering near the intersection of Tennessee St. and Barton Road. The other seemed to hover at about the same altitude over the Arrowhead Christian Academy, which is at the intersection of Pine Ave. and Tennessee St. With the naked eye, both appeared as imperfect inverted triangles that flashed red, blue, green and white lights. When seen thru binoculars the crafts changed shapes – from what looked like a giant, electric jellyfish, to a half circle, to a full circle with pulsating and rotating lights. Both were silent. The one on my left would leave and go further west and out of my view usually between 12:30 and 12:40 a.m. The other to my right normally stayed in its position longer. On that Monday, March 18th it hovered in the same spot until about 1:50 a.m. before heading further west. All three nights were crystal clear. Did not see them on the nights of March 19th, 20th and 21st. We had cloud cover and rain on those nights. With only an average cell phone camera, the quality would not have been sufficient to show enough detail of them. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Location: Near Cao Bang, North Vietnam (at the time) Date: August 12-13, 1968 Time: night
A group of Soviet engineers working in this isolated region in the hope of building a hydroelectric power plant suddenly heard a rumble of engines overhead and thinking that it was American B-52 bombers they all ran out of their tents but were surprised to see a black angular diamond shaped object approximately twice the size of the moon and which emitted a greenish-blue light. Moments later a fiery comet shaped object emerging somewhere on the earth struck the diamond shaped object, immediately there was a bright flash which blinded everyone, and then a powerful shock wave knocked the Russian hydrologists down and tore their tents apart, sweeping away their equipment, fortunately no one was seriously hurt, but the explosion produced deep concern amongst those present. They even thought that a small nuclear device had exploded. During several hours neither the radio or other communications equipment worked, producing only severe static. Only in the morning it was possible to contact their central base and report the incident. The scientists promised a full report of the events and visited the closest village where strangely there was no sign of destruction or explosion, the inhabitants only thought that they had heard a very “loud thunderstorm”. After about 2 days the scientists found at about 1km from their base camp a black half sphere shaped object about 3 meters in diameter. The surface of the sphere was completely black; it seemed that light did not reflect from its surface. Moreover the sphere did not cast a shadow; the rays of the low evening sun seemed to go around the strange object, falling on the high grass around it. By touch the sphere seemed cool and a bit slippery, as if doused with soapy water. One of the men attempted to scratch the surface of the sphere with a sharp knife to no avail. They then notified their central base about their enigmatic finding. Soon after the group received instructions from their main base, to set up a protective perimeter around the object and guard it until a “special group” arrived at the site. They were strictly warned not to approach within 20 meters of the sphere, thus the entire group of five men camped at exactly 20 meters from the sphere. They had no idea what the sphere could be and guessed it was some kind of new weaponry either of Soviet or American origin. After building a small bonfire the men began to rest. The men stared at the bizarre object with bizarre fascination and fear.
One of the specialists, Boris Ivanov wrote in his dairy that the men rested uneasy staring at the object in the light of their bonfire with their carbines ready just in case of any problems, waiting for the Special Forces group to eventually show up and take control of the situation. Soon one of the men, Viacheslav G, rose and went into the brushwood; the rest barely noticed and thought that it must be a prosaic reason for his outing. When in five minutes he did not return, the men began to nervously call out his name, but he did not return. Searching the area with flashlights in the direction of the sphere the men could not find Viacheslav. Concerned and afraid the rest of the men decided not to look any further and returned to the bonfire. After about an hour another man, Peter K, silently rose and also went into the brushwood exactly in the same direction that Viacheslav had taken. He seemed to move uncomfortably, rocking back and forth, apparently very drowsy. A kind of anxiety suddenly enveloped the rest of the men and they remained sitting by the bonfire, unable to intervene. Peter K never returned. This time the remaining men did not search for Peter, but simply sat and waited. A feeling of predestination filled the men. After two more hours to the sphere went Vladimir M., it was obvious that he could not resist whatever force beckoned him, he also never came back. Now only two men remained, Boris and Sergey T. both torpid with fear and refusing to move from their position. But suddenly Sergey’s face became distorted; he arose like a weak-willed marionette and meandered away into the dark, in the direction of the strange sphere. Moments later Boris found himself able to move again, terrified he grabbed his carbine and shot himself on the leg in an attempt to disable himself so he wouldn’t walk away to an uncertain faith. As a result of the pain, he passed out. This action possibly saved Boris. He woke up in the morning when the specialists arrived. They found him half-conscious by the now extinguished bonfire, having lost a lot of blood but still alive, by this time the sphere had disappeared along with his comrades. He was soon evacuated from the area, but not before Boris convinced himself that he and his friends had encounter some type of extraterrestrial probe which had somehow taken his friends with it to places unknown.

On March 18th around 11:30 a.m. I was parked at Port Republic Park in New Jersey. I was returning emails and phone calls for work when I looked across the water and saw a black helicopter moving very slow, almost just hovering at about a hundred feet in the air. I watch this for 15 minutes or so. At this point the helicopter was too loud for me to talk business on the phone so I decided to leave. As I drove around down the road the helicopter was coming my way so I pulled off to the side and waited for it to come to me. As it got closer all the dirt wind sticks and leaves we’re being blown all around me. Being this close I was able to get a good look at the helicopter. It was all black no markings at all, no numbers or letters or names. There was a person in a jumpsuit sitting outside the helicopter taking photos. There was another car doing the same thing I was but I never talked to him. I was so fixated on the helicopter I almost missed it. I noticed above and to the right a sphere with multiple flat sides like a hexagon. The sphere was spinning slowly and hovering or moving very slowly at this point. I could see the sun bouncing off the flat metallic sides as it spun. I’m not sure if the helicopter was aware or not.
At this point I took out my phone and videotaped but had noticed the sphere what’s going gone from my site. At this point I continued to follow the helicopter at about 10 miles an hour or slower. I could clearly see the person in the helicopter taking photos and at one point of me and my car so I thought I better leave. When I got home and took a look at the video I realized that the sphere was in the sky but had just had moved more to the right. Unfortunately my phone video did not do it justice. That being said I did document the strange event as you can see. When you look at the video enlarged and slow down and you will see the object appear in the bottom Circle then in one frame jumps to the second Circle. I don’t know how long a frame is but that seems ungodly fast to me. If it wasn’t for seeing that jump I may have just wrote it off to a strange sighting that could have been anything. Please analyze and clear up my video as I did the best I could with what I had.

During the summer of 1969, when I was 18, I visited Block Island, and decided to camp out atop the Mohegan Bluffs on the south shore. I found an abandoned weather-beaten wooden lean-to shaped like a Boy Scouts tent, sunken into one of the bluffs, about halfway up the slope, or just a little more. (I have always called it a lean-to, but strictly speaking, it was a bit different in that the two narrower sides were open and the roof came to a peak in the middle.) It was nine or ten feet long and maybe five feet high at the peak. The post facing the slope in back had a lot of strange writing on it in a language I didnt recognize some sort of Far Eastern script. I remember that the letters were well formed, the work of a skilled hand. After awhile the tide came in, and along with the growing darkness, a thick fog. That night I heard all sorts of strange sounds, which I attributed to fatigue, nervousness, and the noise of the sea and wind. At first I thought I heard voices on the shore below but there was no sign of any human visitor. My ears are playing tricks on me, I thought. After awhile, it seemed as if several people were speaking a few feet away, near the farther end of the lean-to. Yet their words were not quite recognizable; it was as if they were speaking in an adjacent dimension. This too I chalked up to fatigue and an overactive imagination. Determined to still my childish anxieties, I started to read Jack Kerouacas Desolation Angels, in which the author describes his months as a forest ranger in the Pacific Northwest, and how he had conjured up all sorts of similar fears living alone in the woods. Then, just as I was calming down, there was a loud CRASH against the front wall of the leant-to, the side that faced the sea, as if it had been struck by a rock. This was no figment of my imagination!
In terror, I ran outside, and called out. But there was no reply. I wanted to examine the wall of the lean-to, but could hardly see a thing in the dark. The wind was blowing and the tides were making a lot of noise at the shore below. I quickly scrambled up the steep clay incline, using both my hands and feet. The fog was so thick that could hardly see, but I dared not stop. As I got over the crest, I sensed a presence over my head but I didnt look up, just kept running into the miasma across the bed of rubbery green stuff that grew profusely atop the bluffs. A moment later I found myself encircled in a wide ring of light, despite the fog. It was as if a huge floodlight had been focused on me from above as I ran, although this seemed to be physically impossible. Then on the upper periphery of my vision, I saw what I imagined was a giant bird perhaps the size of a small plane silently gliding over my head, seeming to obliterate the light as it flew by. (This eclipse of the light I cant explain, either. In the MUFON checklist, I identified the craft as a boomerang shape, but Im really not sure what shape it was. I couldn’t accurately estimate the size of the craft either, but did my best on the checklist.) Eventually I reached the paved road that led back to town. A few minutes later, a car came by. I stepped out of the shrubbery, put out my thumb, and it stopped. Two guys in their twenties, year-round Block Islanders, gave me a ride to town. On the way, they asked me what I had been doing near Black Rock Point at night. When I told them what had just occurred, they were astonished. Didnt you notice that all of the houses out there are empty? Everyone knows thats the most haunted part of the Island! Nobody goes out there after dark! Because of this, for decades I believed that the entire episode was some sort of poltergeist phenomenon or a ghost story. But when many decades later, I told the tale to my grandson, he pronounced it a UFO experience, and I am now inclined toward that theory. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

A UFO sighting left a pet terrified in Newbury, Berkshire. An unnamed witness has reported into the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) their UFO sighting on the night of February 13. According to the report, they were walking their dog in Boxford, West Berkshire when suddenly a black triangle zoomed overhead, flying at nearly 40 miles per hour. The UFO was moving without noise and about one kilometre in the sky, according to the witness. They said that the mysterious object reminiscent of a football stadium light. The witness wrote in their report that the two leading edges seemed longer than the rear side, around 60-40 percent. The rear edge looked like a light strip appearing a bit like a classic sci-fi light drive, according to the report. The lights were like the ones in the football stadium but not as bright. The witness saw flashing red and white lights at the tips where white may have been constant, and red was flashing. They did not notice lights underneath, and the body looked to be satin/matte black. The witness noticed their dog appeared to be disturbed as it jumped around three or four times and made a squeaky noise. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Just before 9 pm on the evening of 3rd October 1978, 29-year-old, Hideichi Amano, the owner of a local snack bar, sat in his car on top of a mountain area overlooking Sayama City in Japan’s Saitama Prefecture. Amano was a keen HAM radio operator and the reception was much clearer from this spot. On this evening as he listened to the chatter on the radio waves, he was chatting with his brother who lived on the other side of Japan. They spoke for several minutes before Amano spoke to several other HAM operators in the area. In the car with him sat his 2-year-old daughter, Juri, and because of this he would excuse himself from the airwaves and make the decision to return home earlier than normal. However, just as he began to set out for home, a strange bright light announced itself and filled the interior of the vehicle rudely and suddenly. He quickly moved his eyes around the inside of the car trying to locate the source of the intense glow. Unable to do so, he turned his attention to outside the car, winding down to the window and pushing his head outside into the dark night. When he did, though, instead of seeing a physical object shining down a light towards them, he instead saw nothing at all out of the ordinary. The night and his surroundings were perfectly serene. The light, it appeared, was coming from inside the car. When he returned his head inside the vehicle, though, he was confronted with the sight of his young daughter, laying on her back seemingly in a trance and foaming at the mouth.
“Voiceless High-Pitched Noises” Directly Into The Mind!
Before he could turn his full attention to Juri, however, a “strange orange circle of light” appeared on his lower abdomen. He would trace the light, through the windscreen of the car and seemingly to a point in the distant night sky. Suddenly, a feeling of something pressing against the right side of his head overcame him. When he turned his head, a bizarre “unearthly creature” with a pipe-like object merging from its mouth stood next to the car. The “pipe” was pressing against Amano’s face, from which he could hear “voiceless high-pitched noises”. He would later liken them to a tape recording on high-speed. This bizarre creature’s head was round but seemingly with no neck. It also donned large ears which were pointed at the top, as well as a distinct triangular “depression” on its forehead. The eyes would glow a blue-white color, while the pipe pressing against his head would cover its mouth and nose. The more he began to regain control over his senses in the following moments, the increasingly frightened he became. His attempts to start the car would go without reward. Both the engine and the headlights were seemingly without power. At the same time, the strange high-pitched sounds continued, filling his brain with their alien message. He seemingly submitted to this bizarre auditory grip until around five minutes later when the bizarre creature began to fade away. As did the device pressing against his head. Furthermore, the high-pitched instructions ceased. And the orange light that apparently reached for him from somewhere deep in the cosmos vanished. For a mini-second, there was perfect silence. Then, the headlights, radio, and engine of his car burst into life at the same time. When he checked his watch, it was stopped at 9:57 pm.
It wasn’t until several minutes later after he had negotiated the descending road from the mountain to the foothills below that his daughter’s calls for a drink of water snapped him back to the moment. Feeling safe he had put enough distance between themselves and whatever it was that had penetrated the car on the mountain top, he brought the vehicle to a stop momentarily to check on Juri. After wrestling with whether to do so or not, he would make a report to police of the incident on the way home. Knowing immediately that they didn’t take his information seriously, he would regret doing so. By the time he returned home to the apartment above the snack bar he and his wife owned, his daughter was fast asleep. He would leave her with his wife, who was watching the counter of the snack bar, while he went straight to bed. A sudden and piercing headache had taken hold on the drive home. Over the following days, however, likely from the police report, reporters and television researchers got hold of the account. One show, in particular, one of the most popular in Japan at the time called “11 pm” took an interest. They wished for him to undergo hypnotic regression so they could prove his case. He would agree and Akio Morihe, a professional hypnotist was in charge of unveiling just what happened that evening. NOTE: The above Image is CGI.
