HI Ken: I heard a helicopter outside so I rushed over to the bedroom window to check it out. When I looked out of the window I could see that the helicopter was in fact the Devon air ambulance so I watched as it descended behind a house which then obscured my view. I went downstairs to get my Nikon p900 camera but none of the batteries that I tried were charged so I picked up my small Nikon coolpix L26 digital camera instead and went back upstairs to my bedroom where I stood patiently by the window waiting for the air ambulance helicopter to take off. After a while the air ambulance helicopter took off and ascended from behind the house giving me the perfect opportunity to take a photograph of it which I did. Then to my surprise I noticed a round object off to the left that was just hanging there in the sky so I immediately turned the camera in it’s direction to try and capture it in a photograph, but before I could the object flew off at incredible speed and unfortunately I lost sight of it.
I looked at the photograph that I had just taken and even though the quality of the photograph wasn’t that great I could still see that I had indeed managed to capture the object in the photograph along with the air ambulance helicopter. This camera normally takes perfectly clear photographs so why did this photograph turn out to be so dark and distorted. Could it be that this strange object had some type of affect on the camera causing the lack of quality in this photograph. I believe that it did. What was this object anyway and why was it observing the helicopter. I really cant understand why there are so many of these UFOs in this area? What on earth is going on? The photograph was taken at 3:58 PM on the 26th of March 2020, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
Me and 4 others (that want to remain silent on this matter) were deployed to a work site deep in the Desert in Saudi Arabia (oilfield work, I am a Data Acquisition Systems Specialist with a Software development Diploma and several Microsoft Development Certifications). We were driving down what they call a “skid road” (off road path through the desert, about 6 hours east of Dammam, and about 2 hours north east of Haradh). It is a very dangerous and bumpy road. On the back of the truck we had this very long and heavy hose that was needed for a MPD Job (Managed Pressure Drilling) tied down in the back of a pickup truck. We stopped to check on the hose. We shut off the truck and killed the lights. It was pitch black, beautiful if you ask me. I looked up into the night sky and noticed I could see Stars (very uncommon especially now, usually there is enough sand in the atmosphere that stars aren’t visible only the moon). I first pulled out a camera we use for taking photos of possible job sites while we do evaluation surveys.. then I pulled out my phone to take some pictures of what I believe to be Orion’s belt and thought nothing of it (NOTE: I have not reviewed the pictures on the work camera as of yet, I do not have it in my possession but will have access to it on the 22nd of July) The hose was good then we began our journey. Shortly afterwards.. we took a wrong turn and almost hit a well head. We stumbled upon a vacant lease (drilling job site). It wasn’t large and square in Nature. We backed up to take the road we thought we entered. Again the area was almost a perfect square but yet there was no path (road) behind us. It took us all 30 minutes to get our”wits” about us and to find the road out of this area and continue to the job site. We all found it to be very strange. One day later I was reviewing the picture on my phone and was AMAZED and SHOCK on what I seen.. A UFO coming “down” and making a very sharp turn. It was AMAZING! I always wanted to witness something of the sort. The last few days I was contemplating the journey to the job site after the picture was taken and how confused we were. This is an assumption but I am assuming something else happened. Maybe contact, information distribution, not sure. Also there was only one good picture on my phone.
KENS NOTE: This case was investigated by Steve Hudgeons and was classified as unknown. Steve is the International Director of Investigations for MUFON.
We normally do not investigate camera captures because the witness did not see the UFO but there are exceptions to every rule.
Hi Ken: I was in my bed fast asleep when I suddenly awoke…. To my surprise over by the window there were three fiery orange glowing spheres of light that were in a line just hanging there in the air. I was very alarmed by this so I sat up in bed and just stared at them wondering what the hell they could be. There was no movement from them at all and I was really perplexed by these tennis ball sized spheres. I had seen these types of sphere UFOs before in many pictures and videos over the years but to see them in my house especially in my bedroom was scary. I was unsure of there intentions as I just stared at them intently waiting for anything to happened… Then about 8 minutes later something did indeed happen. A small white light emerged from the middle fiery sphere and flew towards me before it stopped. The white light was translucent in nature but was very bright. I have seen these small types of white lights before at Teignmouth they seem to follow me around while I walked along the path next to Brunel’s railway. I had always wondered what they were and where they had originated from. It is pretty clear to me now that these small lights are some type of surveillance device. I really must of caught the unwanted attention of someone because of my deep research into ufology… I watched the small light for a while before I turned my attention back to the three fiery orange glowing spheres of light which had now began to fade away. I watched as they completely faded out and disappeared. I then watched as the small translucent white light began to move towards me. It flew right up to my face and then slowly moved around my head like it was scanning me. I tried to grab it but it had no substance to it. Even though it was made of light I could see that it was some type of technology. It was far beyond my understanding. Our scientist are only just starting to understand quantum mechanics utilizing quantum bits for computing and I’m telling you this was really next level stuff… this technology was on a spectral level. The light then flew out of the closed window passing straight through the glass. This translucent white light still comes back inside the house from time to time to spy on me and see what I am up to. It’s very strange to know that I am under surveillance by an unseen force somewhere out there. This incident took place back in August of 2018 at Newton Abbot Devon England. Stay safe my friend All the best John.

Mongo, IN, is located approximately 40 miles NNW of Fort Wayne, approximately 5 miles from the Michigan border. The prime witness (referred to as JK) was an area fire supervisor for the Forest Management Division, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, residing in Jackson, MI. DB was the firefighter from Howell, MI who took the pictures. FB: Cass City, MI, retired, Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
One of the witnesses was a retired Michigan State Trooper from Carroll, MI. Another was a retiree from the U.S. Postal Service. The latter did not think the object was a UFO. There was one other witness, six in all. The sighting was brief, estimated at 1-3 minutes. Six men, all retirees from age 45 on up, were sitting around a campfire at the Trading Post Campgrounds at Mongo, IN, on Wednesday, August 31st, 1994. The time was approximately 8:30 PM, Indiana time; 9:30 PM Michigan time (EDT).
The UFO Filter Center at Mt. Vernon, IN (also HQ for the Indiana Group, MUFON) received the initial report on 10/07/94, by phone. FIT Linda Dahlkemper had called me (State Director) at 11:00 AM. On the 21st, UFOFC received blow-ups of two photos, #8 and #9, drawings by the prime witness, and some news clippings.
The photos were impressive. Although the images were small and taken at night, one photo looked very much like the famous Trindade Island photo. I attempted contact with Jeff Sainio, Photo Analyst, left message on his recorder.
At approximately 10:00 AM, on 10/22, I conducted a taped telephone interview with the prime witness (JK). A letter and six Form 1’s were sent to the prime witness. I requested witness send copy of photos to me AND Jeff Sainio. The following are notes taken from the phone conversation:
“Off to the southwest it looked like the moon, glowing through the treetops, and it was low. I said, ‘that can’t be the moon’, ’cause we are in the last phase. (Moon not visible anyway). Then it started moving. Then it moved right out from behind the trees into an open area near a road and hovered toward us. And it was clear as can be.
It was a flying saucer, just that vivid. The object glided into our area at a shallow angle, turned toward us and began to hover. Standing still, the white glow turned transparent. It looked like a white strobe light on the top of the dome. A bright red flash of light under the bottom flashed 3 or 4 times like a strobe and it disappeared to the south and east very quickly, within 2 seconds.”
Before it had gone they got at least four good pictures. One of the individuals who was taking pictures around the campfire that night had a Vivitar fully automatic 35 mm camera, loaded with 400 ASA color film. He was instructed to grab his camera and shoot. He had been out West with a fire crew, fighting fires and had taken pictures out there. The lens was standard, not telephoto.
Newspaper accounts show at least two other good witnesses (the Martins) testifying that this was no blimp. Reports of a blimp (Family Channel) in area. Finally, a man, his wife, and two daughters saw the same or similar object at Hamilton, IN, and took videos. Their sighting was at 8:45 PM and a little over 20 miles SE of Mongo. The object was less than 100′ up and there was no sound. Although some of video was erased, the object in one scene is large, pear shaped, and definitely not a conventional object.
A drawing was supplied with the blow-ups of negatives #8 & #9, and witness states that this is what the UFO looked like, as it was very bright and coming in, first like the moon. Object had panels that could be seen when the object was due south. He says drawing/photos don’t do justice to the actual event. There was absolutely no noise. Three dogs did not react in any way.
He was out hunting the next day and actually saw the Family Channel Blimp that others had reported. “There is no way in hell (that) we saw a blimp that night.”
The object they saw and photographed on the 31st was no further than 1/4 mile away, and from 500′ high to as low as 100′ at one point. Witness then states the object was more vivid when first coming in. Apparently the object was receding on subsequent shots. At first he thought the object to be a bright meteor. It didn’t take long for them to realize that the object was not a meteor. In negative #4 & #5 you “can see a distinct line right around the center”, he said.
Source Test, Natural: All natural sources were eliminated. An EZC Skyplot for Mongo coordinates during time slot shows three planets as conspicuous targets. Jupiter and Venus were in the SW, Saturn was in the SE. Description of object, movement, and number of witnesses precludes a misidentification of an astronomical object.
Also, an on-site investigation by John Timmerman of CUFOS failed to show any other natural source that might explain the sighting.
Source Test, Man-Made: Advertising, commercial, military, and private aircraft eliminated. A blimp seemed possible. Witness testimony appeared to rule this out. Later analysis by Dr. Richard Haines effectively ruled out any type of blimp or any other source. We had already eliminated a balloon, fixed structure, hoax (on witness or by witnesses).
Twelve witnesses were reliable, object was real, description and photos (and a video) indicate an unidentified craft was in the area, along with a possible blimp.
Evaluation: Unidentified craft. Berliner Strangeness Scale: 2 (Night object); Berliner Credibility Scale: 7 (Still photo(s) by professional). Speiser Strangeness Factor: S5 (Highly strange; suggests intelligent guidance); Speiser Credibility Scale: P5 (Highly credible, leaving almost no doubt).
The self-luminous aerial object seen and photographed at Mongo, Indiana on August 31, 1994, has remained unidentified after the various evaluations cited above. On the one hand, its overall shape and flight characteristics are not unlike many scores of other UFO reported for more than fifty years from around the world, many of which were captured on photographs.
On the other hand, a blimp definitely was seen during the night of August 31, 1994 in the Mongo area. The aerial object photographed cannot be positively identified at this time. It remains a UFO. The witnesses also claim the object at one point was less than 100′ over them, was as big as a football field, and made no noise!
On 18th March 2020, I was walking with a group of four friends over the old Oswestry hill fort in Shropshire, UK. We had stopped to take some tea and while we were getting this ready we all heard a humming and buzzing noise approach us from behind and to the North West. We turned around and literally in the sky right in front of us was this very weird looking triangle shaped ‘thing’s that was clearly not any aircraft I have ever known or seen. It was moving slowly sort of towards us and quite low, I would say approx 400 to 500ft altitude. It made a slight turn and flew from right to left in front of us heading in a Southerly direction towards the town of Shrewsbury. This craft was actually quite bizarre looking and made this strange hum as it flew by. I am a retired Royal Air Force air traffic controller with 20 years service and I have never seen or known anything like this before I retired in 2019, so I am fully aware of all drone technology in the military, and can confirm that this was not anything even remotely near that! I have seen some pretty exotic aircraft in my time, and have been based at places like MoD Boscombe Down, but this craft was unlike anything in had ever seen before!
On the 25th of February, a story broke concerning an apparent UFO that had come a little too close to the International Space Station. What’s more, it remained in the picture for around 20 minutes. We, like many other UFO researchers, have pointed out before how the International Space Station has been the apparent target of UFOs on numerous occasions. Normally, however, the live broadcast switches to a screen stating there were “technical difficulties”.
On this occasion, the cameras would “remain locked on it”. As the footage surfaced online it would spread like wildfire. As did the theories as to what it was in the first place.
Estimates of its size would largely agree it to be the approximate size of a bus and was likely traveling somewhere in the region of 7.8 kilometers-per-second.
As to what the craft might be theories ranged from the obvious claims of an extraterrestrial craft to a top-secret United States space plane (the X-37B, for example, is known to perform operations at such an orbit).
Whatever the object proves to be – if indeed there is ever an explanation offered – it will likely continue to be debated around the world for some time to come.
Having seen the phenomenon many nights in a row a friend and I decided to mount spotting scopes cameras and high powered laser pointers to tripods in an effort to document the ongoing phenomenon in the Atlanta area. The closest object appear to be 300 to 500 yards away . As many as 15 to 20 objects were visible in the area and generally moving in a southwest direction.
Objects were obeserved to be stationary at times and then moving rapidly at others . the objects were recorded as they responded to a blue laser pointer the total time of the encounter was about two hours it would be noted pointing digital or optical lenses directly on the objects made focusing difficult. Once we used the laser was used one lowered greatly in altitude and approached to close proximity to us. It was star like and we trained the laser on it. That’s the footage. While we were busy with that one we found others had come in low behind us as if observing and displaying a pack hunting character. Strange days indeed. I would not and as in the pics it seemed to be able to effect the laser in a strange way at times .
Hi Ken: I had an incredible signing today. I was in the back garden sky watching and I had just zoomed in on a clear blue part of the sky with my Nikon P900 camera, when all of a sudden a saucer shaped craft flew directly into view. I was looking through the viewfinder at the time and I was very surprised by what I saw. I really wasn’t expecting to see any UFOs that close up. I was totally amazed. I could see that the surface of the saucer was very dirty looking like it was covered in soot, but what really caught my eye was the fact that I could see some sort of violet coloured energy being discharged from the back of the saucer shaped craft as it moved forwards through the air. I had never seen anything quite like it before. I could hardly believe what I was seeing… I quickly took a photograph of the saucer while moving the camera to follow the saucer as it flew across the sky. I was trying my best to hold the camera steady but it was almost impossible at such high magnification. The saucer then increased it’s speed and unfortunately I lost sight of it. I tried to reacquire the saucer in the viewfinder of the camera but it was no good, it was gone. The saucer had been at a very high altitude and I definitely wouldn’t of seen it without my Nikon P900 camera. It was just sheer luck that I was already zoomed in to that part of the sky when the saucer had flown in to view. What on earth could this strange unidentified saucer craft be? The photograph was taken at 10:58 AM on the 11th of March 2020 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

Hi Ken: It was dark outside and I had a real urge to go out and do some sky watching. I really couldn’t wait to see what I could spot in the night sky so I grabbed my Nikon P900 camera and binoculars and went out through the back door into the garden where I sat down in my garden chair and began to scan the night sky for anything out of the ordinary. I was sat for about 15 minutes before I spotted something of interest. There was star like object that was very bright that wasn’t present in that part of the sky the last time I had looked so I turned my full attention towards it and began to watch. I could now see that it was moving and I thought to myself “maybe it’s a satellite” but with that the object just suddenly stopped and hung there in the sky. I knew that satellites couldn’t just stop like that so I ruled that theory out. Looking through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera I zoomed in on the area of the sky where the object was situated and immediately took a photograph. I then decided to get a better look at the object through my binoculars so I put down my Nikon P900 camera and then picked up my binoculars. Looking through my binoculars at the object it looked like it was hexagon shaped at first, but the more I stared at the object the more rounded it became in appearance which I thought was odd. Maybe it was the orientation of the object in the sky that gave that impression of it’s appearance. Then my attention was drawn to the dark black centre part of the object where a light suddenly appeared and then started to move around inside it. The object now looked bizarrely like an eye ball that was looking around the sky. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing and as I continued to watch the object it began to fade away until it was no longer visible in the sky. I was left scratching my head… What had I just witnessed? The photograph was taken on the 8th of March at 6:15 pm at Newton Abbot Devon England. Stay safe my friend all the best John.
KENS NOTE: John Mooner is the Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos. John’s location has been a hot spot for many years. We are still trying to figure out why.
“Dead Alien body recovered.” This claim has been made too many times without validating evidence. As time goes by, these fantastic stories fade away and are forgotten. The above photo is real.
In most cases, debunkers stand by their status quo anthem; “It couldn’t happen, therefore it didn’t. Those of us who honestly seek the truth of the UFO mystery are always looking for that one account that may fill in the missing pieces to the age old
question, “Are We Alone?”
One compelling account of an Alien body has come to us at a snails pace from the former Soviet Union, along with still frames of a video. This video tape is still under wraps in the State of Georgia, Russia.
This tantalizing story comes from the Georgian UFO Association (GUFORA). They make the claim that a dead alien body was recovered by the Russian State Security Service in 1996.
According to their report, an elderly woman who lived in the village of Kashtim came across the small bodied creature as she walked near her village in the vicinity of the Ural Mountains. Picking up what she thought was a baby that was ill and abandoned, she took the child home with her to nurse it back to health.
After two weeks of caring for the child, the old woman became ill, and was hospitalized.
Too afraid to reveal her secret, she left what she thought was a Godsend companion at home alone, and the creature died.
The poor old woman confided in hospital officials, and the Kashtim Police Department intervened. They proceeded to the woman’s house, and found the dead body on August 13, 1996.
The corpse was filmed with a VHS video camera, and an investigation was completed. Radiation measurements were taken, but no abnormal readings were found. The being was measured at 8 and one-half inches in length. Soon after reports were made, the alien body was confiscated by the State Security, formerly KGB. At the present time, I am trying to get further details of this case, and will post them when and if any new information is received.
Thought I heard someone talking outside? I stepped outside my shop and saw no one. I did notice a stationary very bright light due West of my home that was brighter and bigger than any object I had ever seen in the night sky. I am about 2 miles inland from the Oregon coast and I have a Florence address but my residence is actually in Dunes City. I am a long term private pilot and have done considerable night flying. This object was extremely bright and VERY large. As I watched the Moon continued it’s track to the west but the object seemed to be in geosynchronous orbit and stayed in the same position. I used my Kyocera cell to take still pictures. I took several that were free-standing and blurred so I leaned against my shop and got 4 more that turned out pretty good. It was cold and I had no coat, so I just came in. I looked out in a few minutes and it was gone. The next day I opened the pictures on my computer and enlarged the photo and found out the anomaly was a ring! I would describe the object as a dimensional portal or jump gate?
Hi Ken : I was sky watching and it was quite cold out I had been outside for about 30 minutes when I spotted a slow moving object that was at a very high altitude in the sky. I could see that it was something unusual because of the way it was slowly moving back and forth around the same area of sky before it finally stopped and just hung there motionless in the sky. I was intrigued and I wondered what it could be so I looked through my binoculars at the object. Right away I could see that the object was round and it consisted of an inner and outer circle. The centred inner circle part was filled with a dull purple colour while the outer circle part seemed to be metallic in nature. This round craft was all to familiar to me as I have photographed it many time before over the years while sky watching. I was very excited to see it again so I immediately put down my binoculars and picked up my Nikon P900 camera so I could capture this object in a photograph once again. I zoomed in on the area of sky where the object was stationary and then centred it as best as I could in the camera viewfinder before I took a photograph of it. The object must of hung there in the sky for about three minutes before it then shot off at incredible speed heading into a thick bank of clouds where I lost sight of it. I went back inside to look at the photograph of the object and I Inserted the SD card directly into the card reader on the front of my computer and looked at the photograph on my 4k TV.
I could see the round object in the photograph but the photograph was hazy and slightly blurred so I opened up my focus photo editor app and de-hazed and sharpened the image before I made a few more enhancements to the photograph. Now that the image was much clearer I could now see that there was in fact an alien being that was looking out from the inside of the purple coloured centred part of the craft. The alien appears to be bold with an elongated head furthermore the alien is holding it’s arm up and it’s hand and fingers are visible in the image. It appears to have six fingers which I found to be very odd but interesting nevertheless. I believe that this photograph is proof of alien visitation in the skies above Devon. The Photograph was taken at 11:30 AM on the 18th of February 2020, at Newton Abbot Devon England.

My friend at the time called me and said he had seen some “ufos”, I thought he was seeing things, but humored him and said we could get together the next night for a poker game and see the so called “ufos” m father in law and I went to Mondovi Wisconsin to play cards. While playing, around 8 pm he noticed the lights, so we all went outside (My friend, his wife, my father in law and myself). I had brought a camera, as well as a video camera to record the lights and explain to him what we were seeing, that being said, my Father n law was in the Air Force when he was younger and I lived on many Military bases and knew a lot about jets, Helicopters etc, I thought I’d easily explain the light to him to prove they were not ufos. After about 5 minutes, I knew without a doubt as well as my father in law these were NO, JETS OF ANY KIND, HELICOPTERS, BALLOONS, RADIO TOWERS, BLIMPS, and surely not Drones (drones were not out as of this year. We observed these “lights” for about an hour and a half. I took a lot of pictures and some video, wish I’d have taken more but was so dumbfounded as to what I was seeing and trying to explain to myself what they were… I can NOT explain what we saw. As stated above, nothing I knew of could have did what these lights were doing, they fly slow as times from east to west, north n south. And faster at times, no abrupt changes in direction but would “disappear ” and show up miles away in seconds or an instant. I’m not seeking any kind of fame, tv etc don’t even care about credit for pics and video, just would like someone to view them and tell me what they think we seen. , that’s all….you look at the pics and decide for yourself. Not all were the same shape as you can see in the pics. Note, the camera I was using was one of the first digital cameras out, an old Toshiba 4 mg Pixar camera, and you can get the pictures for any manipulation and will not find any … this is exactly as they were taken. It took me years to figure out weather or not to even post them or tell anyone other than family, but, I’m to curious as to what they were. I thank you for your time, and hope you can explain what these are… Thank you, Sincerely, I’m trying to upload more pictures but it only let me upload one.
KENS NOTE: Why MUFON would classify this case as IFO, Identified Flying Object is a total mystery to me. It alarms me of the possible debunkers in this organization.
In an unprecedented move for this country–and perhaps the whole world– military authorities have made public a video showing 11 unidentified flying objects (UFOs) captured by an aircraft belonging to the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA).
This video shall be presented today by journalist and UFO researcher Jaime Maussan.
In an exclusive interview with the La Prensa newspaper, Maussan stated that the Secretary of National Defense himself, Ricardo Clemente Vega Garcia, authorized the broadcast of this material to both domestic and foreign news media.
According to the researcher, the encounter occurred on March 5, when an aircraft belonging to the Mexican Air Force, a Merlin C26/A, was engaged in drug interdiction patrols. At around 17:00 hours it detected the presence of 11 objects following it.
The routine flight took place between Copalar, Chiapas and the State of Campeche. The encounter took place near Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche. It was there that the aircraft, belonging to the 501st Air Squadron was performing its routine patrol when it suddenly detected the presence of an object on its radar at an elevation of 3500 meters, as well as through its infrared equipment (FLIR).
The airplane immediately pursued the object, which according to the video footage, lost itself in the clouds. Minutes later, the presence of other objects — for a total of 11 — was detected. They followed the aircraft and surrounded it.
These UFOs were captured on radar and by the FLIR gear. However, they were never seen by the aircrew despite having been two miles distant from the aircraft at one point.
The crew consisted of eight monitoring specialists, among them the pilot, Maj. Magdaleno Castañón Muñoz, radar operator Lt. Germán Martin Ramirez and FLIR operator Mario Adrian Vázquez Tellez.
These military men were interviewed and claimed having never seen a similar phenomenon, since the speed and movements detected by radar confirmed the fact that the [objects] were not aircraft.
On the afternoon of 19th April 1978 in the small town of Colfax, Mark Coltrane was on police patrol duty when he decided to pull his vehicle to the side of the road so he could have something to eat. It was as he was doing so, in an area in a town of only a few thousand that was free of people, he noticed how “crackles” like static was sounding from his police radio.
Before he could take in any more details, though, his attention turned to the “metallic-looking disc” that was moving upwards in the afternoon sky, perfectly clear through the windshield of his police car.
He continued to watch, noticing that the strange object, whatever it was, was moving toward him. As it did so, he would reach for his Polaroid that was in the car. Exiting the vehicle he prepared to snap photographs of this seemingly unearthly craft.
He managed to fire off several shots on the Polaroid. This would send the pictures spitting out of the bottom of the device seconds after capturing the image. He would recall that at one stage the craft was so close that he could even make out markings and details on its underside.
Then, the object began to move away and back into the sky eventually disappearing into the distance. Although he wasn’t exactly sure, Coltrane would state that the sighting would last no longer than several minutes. That is, from first noticing the crackling sound to the craft disappearing into the distance.
He knew what he had seen was real. And he had photographs to prove it. Coltrane would, however, remain in his car for several hours contemplating his next move. He would finally set off to the station to file his report.
, Robert said the encounter occurred Sunday, Dec. 12, 2004, when he and Anne saw a ball of light in the night sky about 7:10 p.m. He said they saw the apparition through a sliding door leading to a deck off the kitchen. He described “a huge ball of brilliant white light coming toward the house from the west,” slightly above the tops of trees. As the object came closer, he said it appeared to grow bigger, and stopped above the house, where it appeared “absolutely huge, maybe two, maybe three football fields. The white light engulfed everything.”
Despite the intense light, the glare didn’t hurt their eyes, he said, but hovered silently for a few minutes before a pale blue light emitted from the underside and formed a perfect square on the deck. Robert said the light fully engulfed Anne, who was lifted off the deck, prompting Robert to open the sliding door with one hand and grab Anne’s waist by other. He said he pulled her into the house and the shut door. When he looked out again, the strange light was gone, he said.
During the ordeal, Anne went unconscious. When she came around, she said she remembered seeing the blue light and that Robert described it as square, but could not remember any details after that. A short while later, they said they received a phone call from Robert’s sister and her husband, about five miles to the east, saying they too saw a ball of white light trailing a blue tail, moving parallel to the ground. Robert said he noticed blisters on his hand, just below his middle finger.
In the report, Robert said he and Anne subsequently noticed unusual occurrences in their own home, including a microwave open beeping at random and objects flying off shelves. Robert said many of these occurrences would happen during the day, and Anne would relate them when he returned home from work. Hypnosis helped her recall details but didn’t work for him, he said. However, he recalled an eerie instance in which he said he administered CPR to Anne as she lay on the floor.
“After I got her off the floor and on to the couch I looked into the kitchen and saw what looked like snow or fine pellets of Styrofoam pouring in through the sliding door – I guess didn’t shut it all the way. After icing my hand for awhile I told Anne, I’m going in the garage to get the shop vac to clean up the mess.’ When I looked again all the white stuff was gone and the small carpet in the kitchen was dry.” He added, “Also the white light outside looked like it flowed like a liquid wrapping itself around everything,” and no shadows formed.
Billerica police said they did not receive any reports of an unusual sighting in the sky Dec. 12, but said from time to time, they, like all police departments, do get calls from concerned residents of a strange light or sound that turns out to be something ordinary. Petty said someone also reported seeing something peculiar in the sky over Billerica around 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 29 and reported the incident to the National UFO Reporting Center in Seattle, Wash. That report describes “a very large, circular, bright-white light above the clouds going around and around in a very large circle” at high speeds. The report said the witness looked out again and saw the same light about an hour later and insisted it wasn’t a search light or plane.
In his probe in the reported Dec. 12, 2004 incident, Petty said, among other steps, he made inquiries to several area police departments, interviewed many of the couple’s neighbors and have filed a Freedom of Information Act request from the federal Aviation Administration regarding aerial activity in the area on that evening. He said Billerica police provided a printout of police log entries from the time of the reported sighting, but that log activity suggests no unusual reported occurrences. He said Burlington police sent a written response indicating nothing unusual. An inquiry to Bedford police received no response, he said.
Anne, 58, a disabled contractor, agreed to meet recently with a Minuteman reporter, but would not give her or Robert’s last name. She showed the small porch where she said the object appeared and which she said lifted her a few feet in the air before Robert grabbed her and pulled her inside.
But she said any physical evidence – the burns on Robert’s hands, which she showed in a photograph, and the powdery residue she described – are gone. She said, after the incident, her sister called on the phone to say she, too, had seen a bright object with a trailing tail while traveling on a highway. They’re not UFO or science fiction buffs, she said, and books and movies of that ilk are sparse in their collection. Anne, who said she recalled a peculiar sighting of a lighted object in her youth, said the experiences she reported suggest the possibility of extraterrestrial presence. However, she remains as mystified as anyone, she said. She said, “I’ve always been very open-minded. I’d be arrogant to think we are the only beings in this vast universe.”
NOTE: The above image is real but from a New York trail camera.
In a letter accompanying the photos, the source claims to have taken the remarkable UFO photographs on the 16th of September, 1996, in Valley, Alabama, USA.
According to the photo taker, he was repairing a fence on his property when his dog started barking loudly. Going over to where his dog was he looked up to see a low-flying capsule-shape UFO hovering and moving slowly over one of his cow pastures. The UFO captured in each of the photos resembles the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space capsules that the United States launched in the early years of its space program.
Black to dark green, the cone-shaped capsule, when blown-up, shows a black teflon-like covered bottom and a flange or rim that goes around near the top of the unknown object. In each photo the UFO is shown at a slightly different position and elevation, making it more difficult to hoax, according to researchers who have examined the photographs.
The photos and a copy of the letter were aired publicly for the first time on TV-33 in Lagrange, Georgia on 26 September 1996. On the “Heston & Steve” show, the two hosts, Heston Yates and Steve Smoots, along with John C. Thompson and Jimmy Smith, field investigators for the International Society for Ufo Research (ISUR), speculated about whether the UFO photos are real. Mr. Thompson said on the program that he was “most favorably impressed by the photos.”
He also has stated since then that he has two witnesses who saw similar shaped UFOs in May and July in the LaGrange area which is only 20 miles from Valley.
Another witness that he has located, says he and others saw the exact craft, incredibly, 25 years earlier in Atlanta. Mr. Smith, a long-time investigator and actual sightee of UFOs, said the photos appeared genuine. He also said that he himself, in 1971, had seen a UFO with a likeness of what the photos depict. He then went on to relate that the 1971 UFO had cut off power to his pickup while he observed it.
The photos, along with a copy of the letter from the alleged phototaker, have now been sent to Jeff Sainio, a photography expert who specializes in analyzing UFO video and photos. Mr. Sainio, who often does photo analysis for the popular TV Sightings program, will determine if the photos really show a UFO.
In the meantime, it is hoped that the person who took these amazing photos will step forward and allow access to the negatives that the photos were made from. All persons involved in investigating the photos are assuring the photo taker over TV and radio that if he wishes, his anonymity will be kept.
Ing. Carlos Cauich Carrillo shot a video of an unknown object that appeared to accompany the airliner in which he was a passenger for several minutes. The flight was covering the Tapachula-Mexico route on September 21, 2005.
When interviewed, the witness states that he felt very nervous and that he felt as though “something or someone” had placed him there at the exact moment the sighting was to occur, since he was initially only filming images of the landscape as seen from the air.
Upon reviewing the material, I noticed that this unidentified flying object was performing irregular movements at high speed, vanishing completely out of frame at certain moments. This confirms Ing. Cauich’s notion that the alleged UFO was speeding away from the airliner and then returning.
This event took place at 14:15 hours as the Mexicana de Aviacion airliner flew over the state of Oaxaca’s Salina Cruz region.
Ing. Cauich has has sightings prior to this date. His steadfastness in watching the skies and his ability to obtain UFO evidence is noteworthy.
As an additional piece of information, I interviewed aviation technician Alfonso Salazar Mendoza, a UFO researcher and writer, who kindly informed me that commercial airliners flying at cruising altitude achieve speeds of 800 km per hour and an altitude of 12,000 meters. This information provides an approximate estimate.
Hi Ken: Extremely bad weather had been forecast for the next couple of days so while the weather was fair I decided to go out into the back garden and sky watch. The sky was nice and blue and there wasn’t many clouds about so I sat down in my garden chair and began to observe the sky around me. I was looking through my binoculars when I spotted something unusual near a contrail. There was a UFO that looked just like a tadpole… It even had a tail that was flapping around behind it as it moved through the air. The surface of the UFO appeared to be metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off it. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing. I could not identify it as being any known type of aircraft or anything that I had ever seen before for that matter. It was very bizarre looking. I watched it for a while as it flew around the same part of the sky near the contrail like it was on some sort of fixed flight path. I then decided to take a photograph of the UFO so I put my binoculars down on the garden table and then picked up my Sony HX-300 camera and aimed it towards the UFO before I took a photograph of it. I put down my camera and then continued to observe the UFO through my binoculars once again. After about two minutes of watching the UFO it then shot off at incredible speed heading north where I unfortunately lost sight of it. I have seen a lot of UFOs around this area but I have never seen anything that looked quite like this. Why was it shaped like a tadpole? It just doesn’t make any sense… What on earth could it be? The photograph was taken on the 8th of February 2020, 11:39 AM at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
