Jerry Linenger has revealed there were
multiple instances that made the entire space crew aboard the International
Space Station scratch their heads. Linenger, a former NASA astronaut, referred
to the anomalies as unidentified flying objects while requested the media not
to take him out of context.
Linenger admitted to seeing multiple
bizarre objects or unexplained things during his five-month stay in space. He recalled how he and colleagues could only
guess and ask among themselves what they witnessed. He claimed to have seen
stuff that made him call his crewmates over.
Linenger, who’s also a former captain of
the U.S. Navy Medical Corps, not only stayed at NASA’s ISS but also did a stint
at the Russian Space Station Mir, which operated from the mid-1980s to 2001.
Along with two Russian crewmates, he spent five months at the SS Mir, which was situated 250 miles above Earth while orbiting the planet 2,000 miles. He was the first American astronaut to perform a spacewalk from a non-American space station while wearing a foreign space suit.
Linenger has made a disclaimer, though, that he made no mention of seeing aliens but only UFOs. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A very bizarre account from the Korean War emerged in January of 1987, when John Timmerman, of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS), sat down for an interview with a former U.S. Army private first class (PFC) by the name of Mr. Francis P. Wall, who had a most unusual tale to tell. Wall had been deployed with the Army infantry, 25th Division, 27th Regiment, 2nd Battalion, ‘Easy’ Company, and in May of 1951 they were operating outside of Chorwon, in an area known by the military as the Iron Triangle, on a mission to reach a small village in the mountains. The village in question was in an area marked to be bombarded with artillery fire, wiped off the face of the earth, and Wall and his men were there to make sure that any innocent civilians were properly warned of the impending rain of fire. Indeed, the air was already reverberating with the thumps and booms of shells hitting, the dark of night occasionally lit up with flashes in the distance. Wall and company had made their way to a steep slope overlooking the village and the fiery flowers of artillery airbursts painting the scene with fire, and that was when they saw something they could not explain up there in the air in the middle of this war ravaged scene. Wall would say of this:
We suddenly noticed on our right-hand side what appeared to be a jack-o-lantern come wafting down across the mountain. And at first no one thought anything about it. So we noticed that this thing continued on down to the village to where, indeed, the artillery air bursts were exploding. It had an orange glow in the beginning. We further noticed that this object was [so] quick that it could get into the center of an airburst of artillery and yet remain unharmed. But then this object approached us. And it turned a blue-green brilliant light. It’s hard to distinguish the size of it; there’s no way to compare it. The light was pulsating. This object approached us.
The men were understandably very unsettled by this point, as the object was obviously not one of theirs, nor any known aircraft any of them had ever seen before, and they radioed the situation in to their superiors, requesting permission to open fire on it. Why they would think that their rifles would do any good when they had just witnessed it casually make its way through artillery explosions is anyone’s guess, but the permission was granted and Wall claims that he would then open fire on it with his M-1 rifle loaded with armor piercing bullets. He claims that he hit the object several times, hearing the pings of the bullets against what sounded like metal, and the bullets seemed to have an effect on it where the artillery had not, apparently damaging it and causing it to exhibit some strange behavior. Wall would say:
Now why would that bullet damage this craft if the artillery rounds didn’t? I don’t know, unless they had dropped their protective field around them, or whatever. But the object went wild, and the light was going on and off. It went off completely once, briefly. And it was moving erratically from side to side as though it might crash to the ground. Then, a sound — we had heard no sound previous to this — the sound of, like, diesel locomotives revving up. That’s the way this thing sounded.
This was where things would get pretty harrowing, as according to Wall the craft unleashed some sort of a retaliatory attack on them. The craft allegedly emitted a kind of ray or beam that came in pulses, and which they could see aiming at them “like a searchlight.” When the ray swept over them the men found themselves overcome with a tingling, burning sensation, and while it didn’t seem to be causing any visible damage they could feel it penetrating through their skin and the pain was enough to make them scramble for cover, scurrying in a panic into their bunkers, where the attack seemed to continue. Wall describes the terrifying and otherworldly scene thusly:
So the company commander, Lt. Evans, hauled us into our bunkers. We didn’t know what was going to happen. We were scared. These are underground dugouts where you have peep holes to look out to fire at the enemy. So, I’m in my bunker with another man. We’re peeping out at this thing. It hovered over us for a while, lit up the whole area with its light, and then I saw it shoot off at a 45-degree angle, that quick, just there and gone. That quick. And it was as though that was the end of it.
Unfortunately for Wall and the others, this seemed to be far from the end of it, as over the next few days they would begin to develop an array of debilitating physical symptoms, including disorientation, memory loss, headaches, stomachaches, nausea, and extreme weakness that was potent enough that some of them had trouble even walking. Doctors who examined them could find no reason or cause for these symptoms, the only evidence that anything was wrong being an unusually high white blood cell count that could not be explained. Despite nothing really officially wrong with them, the men were nevertheless all physically ill and suffering from something, and it was widely assumed by them that this was the doing of the beam that UFO had fired at them. According to Wall, many of them continued to suffer from ill health for years after the encounter, with him saying that even to that day he had frequent bouts of disorientation, memory loss, weakness, and difficulty putting on weight. In later years it has been speculated that the men were probably suffering from radiation sickness. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Although the exact date is uncertain, at around 2 am in the early hours of a January morning in 1954, Armando Zurbaran was driving along between Mexico City and Acapulco. He was on his way to meet a business partner and his hope was to be there before dawn. The winding roads, however, would make his journey that bit longer.
It was as he was negotiating these winding roads, his car headlights cutting through the night that rushed to greet his windscreen, he suddenly began to feel an intense tiredness. In fact, more than tired, Zurbaran began to feel in a “hypnotic state of lethargy”. He would ultimately pull his car to the side of the road in order to gather his thoughts a moment. When he did so, however, he noticed a strange scene awaiting him.
In front of him was a strange object in the middle of the road. He would later describe it as “brilliantly lit”. Furthermore, around this object were several strange men. Each wore the same style of overalls with an extremely wide belt around their waists. They appeared to all be long-haired. He continued to watch the scene for several more seconds.
Then, something truly strange happened.
In what seemed like a flash he was out of his vehicle and walking toward the strange craft. What’s more, the strange men were “escorting” him to the glowing object. As he neared it, a “slight buzzing” became audible to him. He then entered the otherworldly craft.
Not The First, Nor The Last!
Upon entering the craft, he asked why they had chosen him for the “honor” of such a momentous meeting. The response was both fascinating and at least slightly potentially ominous at the same time when he was told that:
You are neither the first nor the last Earthman to be chosen for testing. Our task, slow though it may seem, is designed to persuade. We choose the likeliest, most malleable persons for contact so that they might better transmit our messages!
What messages were being passed on to the rest of humanity by these “persuaded” individuals? And how slow did slow really mean in this instance? Might it suggest that the alien presence on our planet has been here for a lot longer than the last half a century or so since the Roswell crash which, unofficial though it might be, hailed the beginning of the modern UFO era?
As if to prove their superiority he was shown a “review of the smallest details of his life” on a screen inside the ship. Then, one of the strange men took him around the craft. He would answer any questions he might have as he walked around. It was then that he was informed that the ship which he was on was no longer on the ground. In fact, it was no longer on the planet. He was instead, traveling through space.
Traversing Space Using A “Gravity Repulsion System!”
Some of the details offered by Zurbaran regarding the spacecraft and more specifically the propulsion methods that it employed are remarkably similar to details that would surface in the late eighties and early nineties from such people as Bob Lazar.
The spacecraft’s propulsion, for example, used a “gravity repulsion system” to travel from one heavenly body to another. This sounds very similar to how some researchers and whistleblowers state the propulsion systems of recovered alien vehicles in the hands of the United States’ government work. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A UFO spotted over Lake Tahoe in the US in unprecedented detail is “100 percent” proof that aliens are visiting Earth. The sighting has been described as a “classic” spaceship by alien enthusiasts who claim it to be a flying saucer.
Holidaymakers at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, spotted the UFO zooming across the sky and were fortunate enough to capture it on video.
The craft was moving so fast it can barely be seen in the video, but some eagle-eyed experts slowed it down to get a better look.
The unnamed person who shot the video said: “We went to Lake Tahoe for vacation and we got a tour on a boat to ride on the lake. “I didn’t see the object until we got home, as I was checking the videos this object appeared on the video with tremendous speed.”
Some UFO experts are so convinced by the authenticity of the video that they believe it is only a matter of time before aliens reveal themselves to humans.
UFO Sightings Daily says on its website: “Here is the most detailed UFO I have seen all week. “This is a classic flying saucer, a beautiful metallic disk with a raised upper dome area. “This is 100 percent proof that aliens are monitoring human up close and personal.
As well as the cases we have already highlighted above, UFO activity, already increasing overall, would suddenly explode in 1967. And would do so right from the start of the calendar year.
For example, on 9th January in Malta, Montana, after their dog’s excited barking alerted them to something out of the ordinary taking place, an entire family would witness a “large rectangular object”, which glowed red along the bottom and amber along the top, flying low to the ground near their home. Despite how low it was, no sound came from the glowing craft. It would eventually land in a nearby field. It remained there for around an hour, glowing red. Then, without warning, it would shoot directly up into the air at breathtaking speed.
Just short of two weeks later in Methuen, Massachusetts, three teenage girls were driving alongside a field when a “string of nine or ten bright red lights”, themselves part of a solid object, moved over the field. The girls pulled the car to the side of the road to watch the lights. When they attempted to start the vehicle again, however, it stalled. The headlights and the radio were also dead. The object would suddenly leap into the blackness of the sky and vanish. The car would start shortly after.
A Wave Of Sightings Across The World
Of course, sightings of strange craft were seemingly taking place across the planet.
On the 11th January, for example, a “white ball” or oval-shaped craft was reported to be hovering relatively low to the ground. Although the details on the report are vague, it also appears that some form of paralysis of the witness took place.
Several nights later at around 10 pm over Lake Ontario in Canada on the 20th January, a pilot and his three passengers would witness a “round, glowing white object”, approximately the size of “a large apartment building” in the skies above them. They would further claim that a “ring of red lights” ran around it, blinking and flashing. The pilot would immediately turn back to the airfield and cancel the planned flight.
Just short of a week later on the 26th January in Heidelberg in Germany another sighting would unfold. At around 8:30 pm, the unnamed witness would suddenly hear a “pulsating sound”. When they looked up to locate the source of the strange noise, they could see a “shiny, metallic, elliptical-shaped object” hovering overhead. The witness would watch for several minutes until the sound of military jets approaching came. Then, the object took off at great speed.
On the 3rd February just outside of Lima in Peru, came another sighting from an airline pilot, this time of a DC-4 passenger plane traveling from Chiclayo to Lima. The pilot would witness a “very luminous object” in the distance which he at first took to be a star. However, the way it moved and the fact that it was it approaching them meant he quickly discarded any such thoughts. As the object passed them, the “fluorescent lights of the cockpit and all radio receptions went out”, temporarily replaced by “static noise”.
The Truly Bizarre Long Island Landing Incident
With UFO sightings and activity having been constant throughout the opening weeks of 1967, perhaps one of the most bizarre accounts occurred at some time in early-March in Long Island, New York. According to the book UFO Universe by R Perry Collins, a family was driving through the region during the afternoon when they noticed a “large disc-shaped object” suddenly appear in the sky. What’s more, it was descending and would ultimately land in a field near the roadside.
Realizing they were witnessing something truly extraordinary, the driver of the car pulled over to the side of the road. Discreetly, the family – seven in total – watched the shiny disc. As they did, they were even more perplexed when several moments later a “sedan-type vehicle” that was driving along the road suddenly swerved off-road and into the field where the strange craft had landed. It steadily made its way to the shining object.
As the family watched this bizarre scene, a doorway on the side of the landed craft suddenly opened. In the doorway were “two men” who promptly stepped out and walked toward the now waiting car. They each got inside, and the vehicle took almost as soon as they had pulled their doors shut.
The craft, meanwhile, rose steadily into the air and then vanished with breakneck speed into the blue skies above.
While we should perhaps treat this account with a certain amount of salt, it is intriguing, nonetheless. Not least due to the obvious insinuation of some type of “government involvement or conspiracy”. NOTE: The above images are CGI.
At around 7:30 pm on 4th February, Hollace Chastain had just finished his state trooper patrol duties and was checking his mailbox on his way home in Norman. As he did so, however, he noticed an elliptical-shaped bright light in the sky seemingly hovering overhead.
He watched the light for several moments and after being satisfied that it was indeed something unusual, he would radio a report to another trooper on patrol, James Blevins. As he did so, the object suddenly began to move, changing colors from “white to orange to greenish-blue” before finally returning to white as it settled back into a hovering position. Even more bizarre, although the witnesses believed the object to be solid, they also witnessed it seemingly changing its shape. In total, it remained visible for around half an hour before disappearing from their sight.
From his position, around 10 miles from Chastain’s location, Blevins would describe the object as “much too big to be a star”, even if it had of remained stationary. When it did move it appeared to “flicker and wobble”. This might be suggestive of some kind of rotation taking place.
Although the object disappeared from the view of the two state troopers, beginning in the early hours of the following morning, only several hours later in real time, several other sightings would unfold within hours of each other.
Several Sightings Within Hours Across Indiana
As they were returning home from Huntingburg where they had performed earlier, several members of a band would witness a strange object just before 2 am, around 10 miles outside of Oakland City. They would describe the object as “pale green with a bluish tinge”. The brightness of the object varied as they continued to watch it.
However, more remarkable, and very similar to the claims of the two state troopers only hours previously, was that it appeared to change shape. At first, it appeared like a boomerang before seeming to morph into a teardrop shape. As the members of the band watched the incident, who would incidentally all request anonymity, another vehicle passed theirs. It appeared these unidentified people also witnessed the bizarre encounter.
Around 75 miles away and 45 minutes later at 2:30 am in Crothersville, state police officer, Richard Barker witnessed and followed a “huge ball of greenish-blue and white lights” that appeared to have a flat, rotating underside. He would follow the bizarre object for around 10 miles, closing to “within (about) a mile of it” before it “took off fast”. He would state:
It wasn’t like any airplane I’ve ever seen. I know it wasn’t a plane!
Just under four hours later at around 6 am, an anonymous woman would report a very similar object over Bedford. She watched the object for around 30 minutes, recalling that it was “oval-shaped, sort of like a cigar”. Furthermore, the “top was shiny” while there was a “bright light on the bottom”. She got the impression from how the light appeared to move that the object was “looking for someplace to land”.
The object came closer to her home and eventually hovered overhead for several minutes before taking off. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
FEBURARY 25, 1999 …….CASCADE MOUNTAINS NEAR ST HELENS WASHINGTON
On Thursday, February 25, 1999, at just a few minutes before noon, three forestry workers, who were planting seedling trees in the mountains of Washington State, witnessed a small, disc-shaped object slowly drift over a nearby ridge to their south, and descend into the valley to the north of their position.
The object descended silently with what seemed to the witnesses a purposeful manner, exhibiting a slight “wobble” to its flight.
The three workers at first thought the object was some kind of parachute that was drifting and descending, but they quickly realized that their initial impression was not correct. Hence, they shouted to their eleven co-workers nearby, who were working on the north-facing hillside, and all fourteen members of the work crew watched the object for an estimated 3-5 minutes.
Within seconds of their first observation of the object, the witnesses became aware that the object was travelling generally in the direction of a herd of elk that they had been watching all morning. They continued to watch as the object proceeded toward the herd until it succeeded in getting quite close to the animals.
The animals apparently remained unaware of the objectís presence until it was within a very short distance of the herd.
Suddenly, the animals bolted, most of the them running up the slope to their east. However, one adult animal was seen by the witnesses to separate itself from the herd and run or trot to generally to the north, perhaps along a logging road.
The witnesses report that at this point, the object quickly moved directly above the lone elk and seemed to lift it off the ground, although no visible means of support of the animal was evident to the observers.
The witnesses added that shortly after lifting the elk off the ground, the object seemed to begin to “wobble” to a more pronounced degree than it had exhibited earlier. In addition, as the object appeared to increase its altitude, the elk, which was suspended upright below the disc, rotated slowly beneath it and appeared to be getting closer to the ventral surface of the disc.
They also commented that the object seemed to increase in size slightly after it had picked up the animal.
With the elk suspended below it, the object began to ascend slowly up a clear-cut slope to the east. However, the witnesses watched it apparently brush the tops of nearby trees to the east, at which point it reversed its course and proceeded to the west.
It executed a 360-degree turn to the left and may have gained some slight altitude in the process, the witnesses thought.
After the object had completed its turn and was once again proceeding in a generally easterly direction, it began ascending very quickly at what seemed to the witnesses to be a rather steep angle. It continued to ascend, and simply disappeared from sight of the witnesses.
The witnesses stated that once the object had started to ascend and had climbed to an altitude above their vantage point, they no longer could see the animal suspended below the craft.
Their presumption was that the animal had somehow been taken into the craft, although the witnesses could discern no “door,” or any kind of aperture through which the animal might have been conveyed into the craft.
The witnesses also stated that following the incident, the herd of elk remained in the same general area, although remained more closely huddled to one another than had been the case earlier in the morning.
The workers added that they, too, had remained closer to one another until their departure from the area at the end of the work day. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A British charter jet has had a close encounter with a UFO said to be “the size of a battleship.”
The shocked pilot and crew of a Debonair BAe146 plane reported being buzzed by “a long cylindrical object” as they flew over the North Sea.
Three other pilots have also independently logged seeing the bright object 58 miles off the coast of Denmark.
Last night the Civil Aviation Authority confirmed a comprehensive report of the pilot’s sighting had been received.
The report says the captain and crew first became aware of the object after the underside of the plane was immersed in “an incandescent light.”
A CAA spokeswoman said: “The captain reported seeing an unnatural bright light below his aircraft while flying at 28,000 ft. The area below him was illuminated for about 10 seconds by incandescent light and it was certainly not a light from another plane.
“Three other aircraft saw it moving at a high speed or static. However, air traffic control were informed and they confirmed that there were no other planes in the vicinity.
“Then, five minutes later, there was a brief radar return from a spot 75 miles away. We believe there was no danger involved.”
The Luton-based 96-seater plane was flying company executives from Linkoping, Sweden, to Humberside airport. A spokesman for Debonair, which runs cut-price flights throughout Europe, said chief executive Franco Mancassola had been informed that a “great red light in the sky” had been spotted near one of the company’s planes.
At one stage, the report says, the object came to an abrupt halt before accelerating past the airliner at thousands of miles an hour.
A CAA source says the object was tracked by a military radar station in Yorkshire after it entered UK air space.
A spokesman for the 6,000 member British Pilots Association said: “We get reports of this nature from our members, but they are few and far between.
“In the past 10 years or so I would say there have been around six cases of UFOs being sighted.
“Many pilots are reluctant to make such claims because it tends to lay them open to ridicule. So when they do go as far as making a report we do expect it to be given credence.”
Another claim of alien abduction in Texas, in the town of Vidor, just before midnight on the evening of 11th October 1994. Once more, according to the report, the witness believes the incident happened “directly in front” of their home. Similarly, the incident was also reported in 2007.
The report claims that the witness, a young boy at the time, was walking home when a “sudden bright light” appeared out of nowhere. It “hit” the witness and caused him to “freeze”.
Then, bizarrely, the next thing he realized he was running down the street as fast as he could. What’s more, he had a feeling of absolute terror running through him, although he wasn’t sure why. As he continued to run, he also realized he was suddenly quite a lot further away than he was when he had seen the strange light. As if it had transported him back to an earlier spot.
When he finally did arrive home, his extremely distressed mother informed him he was two hours late, with the time now just after 1 am. He would go to bed, confused. He would, though, keep the experience to himself.
When he was in the shower, however, he would discover three strange dots in a triangular formation under his arm. What’s more, he would begin to suffer strange and bizarre nightmares of laying a “bright, cold room” with strange figures of “tall and petite” sizes standing around him.
The incident remains unexplained. It isn’t known if this incident was a one-off event or part of a recurring abduction experience. NOTE: The above images are CGI.
Late one October evening in 1994, an unnamed woman would suddenly feel the need to leave her bed and walk over to her 6-month old son who was asleep in his crib by the window. Only when she looked down into his small bed, it was completely empty.
It was at that moment, with the sense of fear and panic regarding the location of her young son running through her, that she also realized she had no actual recollection of going to bed that evening. Before she could give it any more thought, the sound of her son crying would ring out. At the same time, a bright light announced itself from outside, seeping through the closed window blinds.
She would attempt to wake her husband who, despite the commotion of the situation, remained fast asleep throughout. This is an interesting detail and one that discreetly shows up in other accounts of alien abduction. That one person – the abductee – remains fully conscious and aware of the bizarre events, while anyone else in the room remains asleep, but unnaturally so. As if under some kind of advanced and unknown (to us) technology. This would, then, suggest the purposeful targeting of a specific person over others.
She would attempt to turn on the bedroom light but try as she might, the power would not come on and the room remained in darkness.
Then, another flash of light filled the room immediately followed by the cries of her baby son. When her eyes refocused from the sudden light, her son was there in front of her in his crib.
A Huge, Black, Triangular Craft Hovering Over The House!
She reached out to him immediately and scooped him from his bed doing her best to soothe his obviously distressed state.
After assuring herself that he was safe and unharmed, she reached for the blind at the window and pulled it open. As she peered outside, she could clearly see a triangular-shaped UFO hovering over the house. She would recall:
It was very low, and larger than the house. If I had been on the roof, I could have touched it! It was astonishing! I could not believe my eyes! (Also) It made no sound!
As she watched the bizarre scene play out, she quickly scanned the other houses on the street. She could clearly see that all of the lights were out. Unless anyone happened to be looking out of their window in the dark, it was most likely that she was the only person witnessing this most surreal event.
As the enormity of such a situation fully dawned on her, she let the blinds fall back into place and backed away from the bedroom window. A moment later, the light from outside went out. She remained where she was, stood in the middle of the room with her young son in her arms.
After an unknown amount of time, she slowly walked over to the window once again. She peered outside and was relieved to find the bizarre object was no longer there. Not wanting to have her son out of her sight, however, she returned to bed with the young baby in between herself and her husband. In what was a surprisingly short time, she fell asleep.
A Strange Delay In Recall!
Quite bizarrely, upon waking the following morning, although her son was safe and awake in between herself and her husband, she couldn’t recall why he was there. Nor could she recall any details of the night before. It would take several hours for her to fully recall what had taken place in the middle of the previous night.
Upon the recollection flooding back to her she immediately made her way to her son to check him for any wounds or markings. She wouldn’t find anything out of the ordinary. When she checked herself, however, she would discover a strange mark on her leg. What’s more, when she pressed her finger on the mark it felt as though there was something hard, like a pea or small pellet underneath the skin.
Although she would tell her mother of the discovery, she would keep the encounter from everyone else. And would wait for over a decade before reporting the incident via an online reporting platform.
The mark on her leg would remain, and at the time of the report (around 2007), it was still very visible. The item under the skin, however, has “either gone or (is) buried on the muscle now”.
What’s more, although she wouldn’t elaborate, the witness would claim that this “is just one of many strange experiences” she had encountered. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
one evening in December 1991, 13-year-old Jared Lee lived with his family in the Havana region of Florida. On this particular evening, at around 10 pm after returning from nearby Tallahassee to pick up a pizza, Jared would notice a strange light as he climbed out of the family car.
It appeared as though the lights were moving and were coming down to land from over the nearby trees. The young boy immediately called out to his parents so they too could see the strange event unfold.
They turned and watched for several seconds. Their first thought, due to the “sweeping” nature of the lights across the ground, was that they were night hunters looking for deer. However, when they realized the true height of the lights they had to all but dismiss this theory.
All three of the family watched. Each beginning to feel a little unnerved by the incident taking place in front of them. As they did the car horn suddenly sounded out. Then, a “large orange glowing ball of light” began to move independently of the others. This was followed by a blue-green ball of light. Then, they suddenly went out leaving nothing but darkness.
The family remained where they were before a “large beam of intense, glistening, white-gold light” suddenly cut through the sky and hit the ground. At the top of the light, a large metallic craft was clearly visible as the source of the light beam.
After around 10 to 15 minutes, the craft suddenly vanished and with it the beam of light.
Whether that beam of light was concentrated on an individual nearby or whether it would eventually find Jared only he hasn’t declared as such or simply doesn’t recall, the incident remains unexplained.
Laser Paralysis – A Discreet But Persistent Detail In Close Contact Encounters
It would appear that the idea of a light beam of some kind being used to induce paralysis (while causing no lasting harm to the individual) is one that comes up a lot in close contact UFO reports. So much so, in fact, that it would be irresponsible to ignore it completely.
What’s more, reports that feature such details as paralyzing lights or lasers, are spread out right across the reports of the modern UFO era. The fact that they can be found in reports from all decades of the second half of the twentieth century. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
The evening of 5th December 1980, according to the report, was a “bitterly cold” one. And for the anonymous 13-year-old witness, a disturbing and life-changing one. At around 6:30 pm he burst into his family home from the back yard. As he did he would claim that he had witnessed a UFO that was “bigger than a house”.
His mother and stepfather, although a little dubious perhaps for obvious reasons, found his story quite compelling. Not to mention the look of fear and display of agitation on his part. This was surely too fine a display for one so young.
The object had, he claimed, suddenly appeared “from nowhere” and hovered overhead. Then, a light beam emerged from the underside of the craft and seemingly struck him below. Almost immediately he found he couldn’t move while at the same time a strange “mumbling in his head” began. This would continue for around 10 minutes before he believed he lost consciousness.
Even stranger, when investigators spoke to him shortly after they discovered a “painless, sunburn-like redness” on his upper torso. The witness himself was unaware of the marking. Furthermore, he couldn’t remember any more of the events. Following losing consciousness, the next thing he remembered was walking from the garden toward the house.
However, his parents would suggest leaving a small tape recorder by his bed that night. They would claim that during times of stress he would often talk of the events in his sleep. It would prove to be a move that was crucial in attempting to understand just what took place outside their home that evening.
An Abduction From Afar And Paranormal Happenings!
Over the course of several nights, the parents and investigators would be able to, albeit partially, piece together the incidents of the night in question. According to these recordings, shortly after the beam of light hit him, he could hear a voice inside his head giving him instructions. Furthermore, the voice would state that they “wanted to examine him”. While also promising him that no harm would come to him.
While it isn’t clear if an abduction took place in the sense we might readily understand it – in that he was somehow physically transported to the ship above – or if the examination took place somehow via the beam of light that had temporarily ensnared him. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On July 27, 1999, something crashed into the 40 foot deep Lake Backsjön north of Arvika in Värmland, Sweden, according to a number of eyewitness accounts. Those who saw the unknown object called it “something with small wings”. Military officials would stick with the “nothing at all” explanation. Four different people claim to have seen an oblong object plunge into the waters of Backsjon.
The object was described as about 15 feet long and about 4-5 feet wide. There was a definite splash as the object smacked into the lake, throwing water into the air. One witnesses contacted the rescue station in Arvika; they turned the inquiry back to local police, who made their report. Police Chief of Staff Stellan Jansson told the media that all witnesses of the event were interviewed.
It would be the latter part of August that a full search of the lake began. Involved in the operation was the military, security police, and Arvika rescue personnel. Although witness statements were considered legitimate, the rescue teams soon discovered that a much more elaborate, and costly operation was needed. The lake was some 2 miles long, and a half mile wide.
On the thirteenth day of September, “Operation Sea Find” began. The team this time was composed of 14 men, of which 8 were expert divers. Also employed was Sweden’s most high tech sonar equipment along with under water photography. A cover-up scenario was the explanation give to local residents, claiming that the entire operation was a home defense exercise.
Officials stated several different reasons for their operations; one was that robberies in governmental facilities had breached security, and missing items could have been dropped into the lake, and also that if the object was found to be foreign made, it could be some type of surveillance equipment related to the recent thefts in the area.
Rescue operations ultimately claimed that nothing of significance was found; only a plastic bag and a metal barrel, dashing the hopes of locals who thought something exotic might be found. Jansson told the community that ten full days was given to the search, and though they were confident that something would be found, they came up empty.
Jansson also stated that because of the size of the lake, to fully search the lake would have taken a year or more. But, he was satisfied that if something unusual was in the lake, his team would have found it. A final report of rescue results was sent to government headquarters in Stockholm on October 1, 1999. Two pages of the report were not classified, but transcripts of security Police interviews and a description of the methods used in the search were classified. UFO-Sweden filed a request to de-classify the secret documents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In July 2009, I received that call. A young woman, named Mandy, stated that her life had become a living Hell and that she could no longer leave the house in the evening. “I am literally afraid of the dark and under siege in my own home at night!”
Mandy was living in a farmhouse outside a small town in east-central Washington, less than a mile from the Idaho border. About 2 weeks prior to contacting me, her and her mother had noticed bright red and white lights hovering above the Coeur d’Alene Mountains. As they watched the lights, Mandy began to feel dizzy and fearful. That night, she had a horrific nightmare that involved constant flashing lights and loud mechanical noises. The next morning, she woke feeling nauseous and light-headed. Mandy was a schoolteacher but had to call in sick.
By the next day, Mandy began to feel better, but the lights over the mountains continued on for several nights. She no longer had any dreams, but she still had the sense of fear linger with her. Her mother thought that Mandy was simply over-reacting to the sighting of the lights.
Then a few nights later, Mandy and her mother were in the kitchen cleaning up after a late dinner. They began to hear popping sounds coming from the back yard. As they looked out the window, they both noticed hundreds of small red and white lights flying in all directions. Each time a pair of lights collided, there was a distinct popping. Mandy ran into the living room and looked out the window. There were red and white lights everywhere, out by the road and in the field.
Her mother picked up the telephone in order to call the police, but there was no dial tone. By that time, the lights in the house began to flicker. There were also strange sounds coming from the roof, similar to scratching. This continued for about 5 minutes, then suddenly stopped. They were both confused and scared. The phone was now working, but her mother thought that there was no reason to call the police.
Mandy walked outside to see if there was any indication of what had just occurred. Everything seemed fine, but there was a slight odor in the air. She told me that it reminded her of burnt motor oil, but she couldn’t find a source. She eventually went back inside the house, but still bewildered by what had happened.
The next night, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Mandy was getting ready for bed. While standing in front of her bathroom mirror, she noticed two loud thuds on the roof. She went into her mother’s room to see if she had heard the sounds, but she was already in bed asleep. While walking in the upstairs hallway towards her room, she heard several more thuds on the roof, as well as scampering sounds in the attic. She looked out her bedroom window and once again witnessed hundreds of small red and white lights flying about in different directions. The noises in the attic had waken her mother. They both yelled for each other, as all the electricity in the house cut off.
They ran into Mandy’s room and sat nervously on the bed. The thuds on the roof and the scampering in the attic continued. They lit a few candles, hoping the activity would soon end. They felt like prisoners in their own home, worried about what would happen next. Then suddenly, the lights came back on and the noises stopped. Mandy later told me that the commotion went on for at least an hour. Neither of them got much sleep that night.
A few days later, Mandy contacted me by telephone. I was referred to her by a paranormal investigator in Spokane. As soon as I began talking to Mandy and her mother, I sensed that this was not any run-of-the-mill unexplained encounter. They had once again experienced similar activity the previous night. Mandy commented that she felt like they were both in danger and asked if I had ever heard of a similar experience. I was understandably dumbfounded by the series of events but, at the same time, I was concerned that the activity may eventually lead to a physical intervention. I didn’t mention my unease.
I believe that we talked for about 3 hours. There was nothing exceptional about Mandy and her mother. They had lived together in the family home since Mandy was born. There was no information offered about Mandy’s father, so I didn’t press the issue. Her mother had recently retired from her position as a state worker. I asked them to keep a journal on the activity and to contact me. This is my normal routine when working cases. During the interview, Mandy asked; “Why is this happening to us?” I didn’t want to tell her that they may have been singled out, but I really did sense that this may have been the case. Little did I know it would be my last contact with Mandy.
After I got off the telephone with Mandy and her mother, I started to examine several incident databases in an attempt to find any similar events. Continued activity to the same witnesses over a period of time is somewhat unusual, and I was concerned that there may eventually be an escalation.
The next day I expected to receive a follow-up telephone call from Mandy. In fact, I called and left a message asking that she let me know if there had been any further activity. I waited for 3 days, and no telephone call or email came my way. Then, on a Sunday afternoon, the anticipated call came. It was Mandy’s mother. She apologized for not getting back to me. There was an obvious distress in her voice. After a brief pause, she calmly said; “Mandy is missing.”
I got a sudden sick feeling in my stomach. Mandy had gone to bed not long after we had talked on the telephone. Her mother remained downstairs in the living room watching television. At about 11 p.m. she decided to go to her bedroom. As she passed Mandy’s bedroom, she noticed light coming from the bottom of the door. She knocked on the door in order to check on her. There was no response. As she opened the door, the room went completely dark. She flicked on the light switch by the door and observed that Mandy was not in bed. She called out to her, but there was no response. Panic was beginning to set in as she literally screamed, “Mandy!” while running throughout the house. There was no trace of her, inside or out. Mandy was gone.
The local authorities had no explanation. All of Mandy’s personal items, including her car, remained. It was as if she simply vanished. Since Mandy was an adult, there wasn’t really much that the police investigators could do. They suspected that she took off with someone during the night. I asked her mother to keep me updated, but I never really expected to hear back from her. As far as I know, Mandy has never returned home. The last time I made an inquiry with the Washington State Police, her case remains unsolved.
Mandy’s disappearance still haunts me. I am certain that she was abducted by an unknown force, but that doesn’t absolve me of feeling a bit of guilt. I realize that my regret seems ridiculous since there was nothing that I could have done. Nonetheless, I suspect that the stigma of her ordeal will always remain with me. Lon Strickler.

OCTOBER 28, 1999 ……….CARLYLE LAKE KEYSPORT ILLIONIS
CARLYLE LAKE, KEYSPORT — During hypnosis of an October 28, 1999, abduction I was out boating on Carlyle Lake. I remembered the flight from the lake to the craft and getting a good view of our town from the air, and going through the floor of the UFO. The boat gradually moved over me and went through the bottom of the craft before I did.
I did not get a good look of the UFO as I was concentrating on my boat and other possessions as we were brought through the floor.
The next thing I recalled is standing inside the craft and seeing an examination table which was on a pedestal that almost reached the edge of the table.
It was molded into the floor. There was some kind of structure over the table that looked like a light or some instruments. The room was rounded and I was guided to the table by a small gray. I remember getting up on the table as if I had done it before.
At that moment, I discovered that my clothes were gone. Shortly there after a larger gray came up and put his face into mine and I felt he was sucking the memory out of me.
I was okay afterward and left alone. I then tried to get to my clothes, but wound up back on the table. After I received some kind of examination, I again went to my clothes and the small grays helped me get them on.
The next thing I remember is sitting in the boat and a ramp with a rounded front that opens up. The grays pushed me and the boat out some 750 feet above the northern portion of Carlyle Lake. I did not stay in the boat, but floated out.
Afterwards, I just forgot the whole thing except the position change which was about one quarter of a mile and I was going in another direction. I have been able to determine that there were two abductions and one failed abduction before during the same year and have recalled parts of others with and without hypnosis.
Two of the abductions and a failed abduction were recorded on a GPS and saved. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Argentina: A UFO Stole Water from a Military Base in Santa Fe. An effort was made to conceal the case for years, but the proof is undeniable
The case emerges 11 years later and makes manifest the strange repetition of events related to Ufology that are intentionally concealed from the public. The episode occurred on the evening of 24 November 1999 at an army base located in the provincial capital of Santa Fe. A strange “imprint” appeared on the ground. several witnesses directly observed the presence of a 40-meter-long flying object. But that isn’t all, because no one was able to explain the reason why the water tank and two water cisterns that supply the troops were left completely empty.
The exciting story of the event and its subsequent investigation was made known by Grupo Vision OVNI resulting from field work by experts Luis Brussa (general research), Ariel Maderna (photography) and engineer Fabian Rossi (calculation and diagrams).
“After having learned of the event, I decided to go to the base to carry out investigations. Ten days had elapsed. I invited two researcher friends – Ariel and Fabian – to come along. So we grabbed our gear and went out to conduct field research, which is unquestionably the most pleasant and interesting aspect,” says Brussa regarding the origin of the event.
A Search for Truth
“Upon arrival, we were greeted by two soldiers. We told them that we were researchers of the subject and wanted to carry out some studies. They whisked us off to a superior officer, to whom we had to explain matters in greater depth, why we were doing it and what we would do with our conclusions. Permission was granted,” states the researcher.
He later explained that “the soldiers themselves led us to the impression, located in the remotest area of the base, which covers six blocks. We started by looking at the imprint and other facilities, such as sheds, the water tank, trees, wires and the cistern, which supplies water and has a depth of 15 meters and a diameter of 2.5 meters.”
The first clue emerges here. According to the story that Sgt. Carlos Villano told the researchers, “the cistern was practically drained the night of the event.” The officer also stated that the morning following the event, the principal of the primary school that operates on the base’s premises called him to report a lack of water in the school’s rest rooms. “I was sent to the cistern to see what was going on, thinking that the fuses had blown, but they were fine,” said the officer. At the same time, he found that the cistern and tank were both out of water, while noticing the circular impression for the first time.
Another witness was Claudio Chena, the water basin’s custodian, who was 25 at the time. “He said that he was a professional photographer and showed us pictures taken of the event. He also explained that he was playing soccer with his cousin in the base’s soccer pitch, which is in the front of the base, facing Avenida Freyre,” comments Brussa.
“Claudio said that after 9:00 p.m., they saw a bright light toward the water tank, and that the lights went out throughout the district, but not the street lamps, which remained on. They paid little mind to the situation, thinking the lights were from a truck driving along Calle San José, behind the district,” states Brussa in his account.
The researchers canvassed the base’s neighbors, and came across Marta. “This woman said that on that evening, they were watching TV with the family and suddenly became aware of a persistent, even buzzing sound, a sensation similar to that of an earthquake, which Marta had felt in Córdoba, and she compared it as being alike. She stated that the TV set and the household lights experienced at least two brownouts, although power was not entirely lost,” says Brussa.
Another key witness was Aidé, who already knew of the imprint. Aidé is Colombian and is married to a renowned rural doctor. Her son is an architect. On the night of the event, she was standing in the doorway facing Calle Salta around 8:45 p.m. when she saw “a light having a circular shape, with a luminosity similar to that of a fluorescent bulb, and it flew at low speed.
The treetops concealed it. It didn’t give off sparks or lights, smoke or any wake at all. It didn’t change shape, nor did it blink or explode, or even accelerate. It just moved on a fixed course, maintaining its brilliant light and shape.”
“She only saw a single object, which in her estimation, was between 30 and 40 meters wide and at a distance of some 150 to 200 meters. She added that at that time se felt a sense of tranquility and total silence during the approximately 12 second duration of the event,” states Brussa’s report.
Characteristics of the Imprint Found at the Base
Shape: Circular. Measurement: 5.30 meters: Interior: 1.2 meters. Characteristics: the inner print was not perfect. The external print presented a shape with hexagonal edges, not very defined, toward the south. Organic vegetable matter: grass. Size: 3 to 4 cm. tall.
Color: Natural green at the center of the print; dark brown within the print itself. The virgin soil surrounding the grass was similar to that at the center of the print, natural green and regular height.
Complementary Data: The print was seven meters distant from the water tank. Ten meters away on the left is a shed containing two water cisterns which provide water to the tank. Water comes from the street network and fills both cisterns.
An electrical pump sends water to the high concrete tank. Water was missing from the cisterns the day after the event. They [the cisterns] have a diameter of 2.5 meters and a depth of 15 meters. The cistern panel connected to the electric pump did not short-circuit. NOTE: The above image is CGI
Southwestern Illinois, January 5, 2000, about 4:00 a.m.
Anyone who has been in Illinois in January knows that when the sun goes down, it gets cold… real cold. The night of January 5, 2000, was no exception. Everyone who could was staying warm inside, but all did not have this luxury.
Melvin Knoll’s livelihood was his miniature golf course, and worried that something may have frozen there, he braved the cold night to make sure everything was OK.
When he arrived at his business, he noticed what he thought was a very bright star on the northeastern horizon.
He thought nothing of it at the time, and finished checking out the golf course. After satisfying himself that all was well, he jumped back into his warm truck to head home. As he did, he could not help but notice that the light was still there, and even more visible than before.
He watched it for a moment, and it suddenly seemed to be coming straight toward him! As it came nearer, he could see red lights shining
toward the ground.
As it came even closer, the object appeared to be as tall as a two-story building, and as long as a football field. He could now clearly see windows, and a brightly lit inside.
He could not hear a sound from the unknown object as it continued to slowly make its way through the chilly night in a southwesterly direction.
Fearing that he would be laughed at if he could not provide corroboration, he quickly made his way to the local police in Highland. He related his story to the dispatcher, and she agreed to pass the information to the next town in the object’s path, which was Central Communications in St. Clair County.
They in turn relayed the report to the Lebanon police department. At approximately 4:10 AM, a Lebanon police officer, hearing the radio report, spotted a bright object, which seemed to be suspended in the sky.
He could clearly make out two lights, very close to one
The policeman, with lights flashing, raced to the southeast, hoping for a better vantage point to view the strange sight. He watched the unknown object as he drove, and after a few moments, noticed that the two lights had merged into one.
The object seemed to be changing course, and moving directly toward him.
At this point, he stopped his patrol car, and rolled his window down. To his amazement, he could very clearly see a triangular-shaped UFO pass over him, at an altitude of 1,000 to 1,500 feet.
Then, the UFO quickly changed its course, moving in a westerly direction.
This sighting was corroborated by a policeman from Shiloh, who described the object as being shaped like a black arrowhead. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
One of the most intriguing UFO incidents of early 1964 actually occurred a week prior to the Oberwesel case, in the Le Bourget region of Paris in France in the early hours of the 1st March. The French Air Force pilot was returning back to base at around 2:30 am following a routine night patrol mission when he witnessed a strange “weak gleam of short duration” ahead and below him.
As the pilot looked at the scene more closely, he could make out five silhouettes moving about below, seemingly coming back and forth from a landed “machine” on the ground below. The object appeared to be round, at least the part that was lit up and was visible to the pilot above. The silhouettes, who the pilot surmised were the occupants of the craft, appeared to concentrate on the area around the craft.
As he continued to watch, the glowing light suddenly went out. A few moments later, the object began to rise off the ground, hovering in the air for several moments. The pilot could see the underside was flatter than the oval-shaped topside of the craft that until a few seconds ago had been glowing warmly.
Then, without making a sound or displaying any form of obvious propulsion, the object shot directly upward into the air at, speed and disappeared into the black sky.
Upon examining the area where he had first seen the object the following morning, the pilot discovered discolored parts of grass and vegetation. Despite this, though, the pilot would keep the incident to himself.
We should note, in fact, this account arrives in the public arena via one of the many “report a UFO” websites available, and was reported anonymously in this manner, to a French website in 2007. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: I had been sky watching for hours and I had not seen anything unusual so I was about to go back inside and have a nice hot cup of tea when I just happened to look up in the sky one last time and spot an object that was moving very fast through the air. The object just kept circling the same area of sky which allowed me to get a better look at it through my high powered zoom binoculars. The object was cylindrical shaped with a pointed front end and it had the appearance of a yellow crayon. It was aerodynamically shaped like a rocket but there was no flame or visible means of propulsion which I thought was very strange. I really had to capture this unusual crayon like object in a photograph so I could post it online and share it with all my friends so I immediately picked up my Nikon P900 camera off of the garden table and aimed the camera towards the object. I zoomed in on the object and it was really hard to hold the camera steady at such high magnification but I managed to take a photograph capturing the object just before it flew off in a straight line which caused me to lose sight of it. I was left very perplexed… Why was the object circling around in the sky like that? What could this object have been? Once again I am left with more question than answers. The Photograph was taken on the 1st of May 2018, 5:08 PM at Newton Abbot Devon England. Have a great week my friend all the best John.

At that time I was in the Israeli army deployed next to the Syrian border. It was winter time and I was assigned to a patrol on the road along the security fence. We were heading north at speed of 15 mph as suddenly I saw a spot of orange light moving in the clouds. I was facing west holding a machine gun, observing this spot moving in exactly the same speed as our vehicle. It felt like it had been following us for more than 10 minutes so I asked the commander to slow down because I see something strange in the sky. As we arrived to a full stop, the light stopped moving as well, emerged from the clouds and revealed itself a a flying disc. It grew larger and hovered above a field, spinning around itself while swinging from side to side. Its dome was covered with blinking lights colored in orange light. It hovered around 20 minutes as all of the sudden it flew up into the clouds in a straight line and vanished. A few moments later, it was reported to be seen 30 miles north. This event occurred 20 years ago but it has been bothering me until now. Thanks NOTE: The above image is CGI.
