On the 31st of December 1978 a film team went on board of an Argossy airplane for an interview with the crew. On the 20th and 21st of December another aircraft had reported several UFO and this was the reason for the interview by Mr. Fogarty and his crew.
The pilot – and co-pilot were not the ones that had reported the event. Only ten minutes into the flight their was a first UFO encounter. The cameraman quickly changed the lens of his camera to a 100 mm / 240 mm zoom lens and after midnight on the 1st of January 1979 he filmed several UFO that during the entire flight followed and approached the plane. He recorded the UFO from the windows of the cockpit and the presence of these unidentified flying objects were also confirmed by Wellington Radar and Air traffic Control.
This event is commonly known as the Kaikoura UFO Mystery and the journalist, Mr. Quentin Gogarty, wrote a beautiful book about it titled: Let’s Hope They Are Friendly. Interesting fact: Mr. Fogarty saw something with his eyes that the old video does not not show you. He mentioned in the video that the UFO appeared to be “rolling and turning”. So was he right?
No one knew that the original 16 mm film still existed. Fogarty’s crew had some very bad (personal) experiences after their film had been shown in the media. They have been ridiculed and called fantasists. As most of the reactions about their eye-witness report were negative, in some cases hostile, despite its importance this film was never supposed to be published!
Flux, one of our team members, who lives in New-Zealand performed his own in-depth research into the Kaikoura UFO and his good nose led him in 2015 to the original 16 mm film.
Long story short: The 16 mm had been digitized by a top notch film laboratory and our team received 4 High Definition videos of Blue-Ray quality. We almost fainted as they arrived as for the first time we had UFO material of the best possible quality.
After you have watched the presentation you will agree that the bright object can no longer be dismissed with a simple explanation and you will understand why this UFO encounter frightened them and afterwards had such an enormous impact on their lives.
For the passed 40 years these UFO only lived in their memory but they never knew what they really looked like in full close up… until today! Without Flux’s curiosity the world never would have seen what you are about to see.
We dedicate this presentation to all who were present that night and witnessed a UFO encounter. This presentation does not provide any answer to the question what these UFO are!
We only provide undeniable visual evidence that they exist.
My son and I were visiting a friend of mine in Weyauwega. I am reluctant to reveal the exact location out of concern for my friend’s privacy as well as my own. However the general location is just North of Main street on the East side of 110 and South of the train tracks. My boy was sledding in the snow and I was taking pictures.
It was in the evening and was starting to get dark pretty quickly. My son pointed up to the sky and we noticed some lights coming in from what I believe is the south west. At that point I just pointed the camera up and took the shots. The object really gave me the impression of a balloon – except for the lights. They seemed to cycle all different patterns.
The object passed almost directly overhead (picture 1) and then headed south towards the train tracks (picture 2). As the object passed I could make out more of a disk shape than a balloon shape. I just remember my son asking me over and over what it was and I didn’t have a clue.
Dr. Davis said that he was driving toward his home on Friday, November 21 between 9 and 10:00 p.m. with his 2 sons, 15 and 18-years old (He recalls the specific date, knowing that one son is in college and would not have been home any day except Friday).
While driving, they all spotted a soundless aerial object over a nearby open field that was described as an oval-shaped, white-colored light source as big as a pea held at arms length which moved ‘like a hummingbird would move.’
The object, seen in the dark and clear night skies, was relatively high when first seen and was “coming down, moving in increments as if an elevator would drop and stay there awhile, then drop and stay there awhile,” Dr. Davis said.
After the first 3 or 4 minutes of visual observation, the object began moving around to different parts of the sky. They got out of car to see if they could identify this object and verified to their satisfaction that the object was not a plane, helicopter or aurora borealis.
“My first inclination was to rationalize what this object could have been,” Dr. Davis said. “rather than jumping to conclusions. After we ruled out the various possible explanations we assumed that this was a UFO.”
“I know for a fact that there was no explanation for this object and I’m just glad I had my two sons with me to see it,” he said.
After observing this object for a few minutes, Dr. Davis and his 2 sons got back in the car and drove on to their home under a certain sense of apprehension.
“I would say that our feeling was more a sense of apprehension than fear,” he said, “I did not know what it was we were looking at and had some concern that it might or could have spotted us.”
After driving the short distance to their house, they went to a second floor bedroom and looked out the window to the northwest where they continued to watch the object. It descended lower toward the ground and seemed to be settling in a nearby field where its color had shifted from a white to an orange. As the object got lower and lower to the ground, it became bigger and its color changed to a reddish light.
He said that the size of the object increased from a pea at arms length to a dime at arm’s length, stressing that its size, from his perspective, was “not quite as drastic as a nickel at arms length.”
“There was like a vacuum of silence while we watched this,” Dr. Davis said, “it was like everything was real quiet, at a standstill and then when it became a red color, everything went crazy.”
Dr. Davis said that animals in the area suddenly erupted in a frenzy. His neighbors dog was barking crazily and his German Shepherd dog tried to break its chain.
From his perspective, the object descended to the ground but was not certain that it touched or made contact with the ground as trees prevented him from seeing this with certainty.
“At that point, after this object got red, it just “shot off” like a dart, some kind of acceleration and it just took off to the west. We just stood there dumbfounded.”
He said the sighting lasted for an estimated 10 to 15 minute duration.
“I was very reluctant to call the police about a UFO sighting,” he said, “at that point, we were not going to report this.”
“Right after that my 2-sons went back outside and heard the screaming. It was a female voice. They got in the car and within minutes had called from their cell phone to say that they had been hearing screaming sounds in the field where this thing came down,” he said.
“Approximately 20-minutes after the UFO sighting the police were at my door, there were about 20 officers and a rescue squad over in the field where I spotted the UFO. They were combing the area and had asked me what I knew about someone screaming.”
“Apparently, others had heard the screaming sounds.”
I asked Dr. Davis if he could explain what was heard and he emphasized that he did not hear the screaming sounds himself, that his 2 sons heard the disturbing commotion, along with other residents in the area that notified law enforcement.
Dr. Davis paused from our conversation to check with one of his sons, asking if he could recount the nature of the screaming sounds. He said it was a desperate, blood curdling scream of a female voice that kept saying: “Help me, oh my God, help me!”
“Apparently several people had heard the screaming, I don’t know how long it lasted,” he said.
When the police arrived at his doorstep knocking on his door (an estimated 15 minutes after the UFO departed), Dr. Davis volunteered information about the UFO sighting.
“I took the officer to the side and explained to him that this is going to sound crazy, but I need to tell you what I saw tonight.”
“I told the police about the UFO after they came to the door, I don’t know if anyone else saw the UFO but the officer taking my report took me seriously. He didn’t write anything down while I talked with him,” Dr. Davis said.
When asked if the police officer indicated that anyone else had also witnessed the UFO, Dr. Davis said that the police officer said he had seen a UFO also, but was uncertain if he was referring to the same object or a separate, unrelated sighting.
Dr. Davis said that aside from reporting this to the police officer who knocked on his door, he had not reported this sighting to any other person and that he was not the source for the report which was submitted to The National UFO Reporting Center. He was puzzled how the report made it to NUFORC and said that neither he, nor his sons, reported the sighting to anyone.
“I’m still trying to figure out who reported this,” Dr. Davis said after our conversation. He went on to say how he got “freaked out” when the cops came to the door asking about the screaming sounds.
He described the area of his residence as isolated and surrounded by fields and woodland. His road is paved. He emphasized that the screaming sounds came from the immediate area where the unidentified object had came to the ground. “The screaming sounds came from the field, and I have no explanation for it.”
Dr. Davis, who teaches psychology for the Ashland, Kentucky Community College branch of the University of Kentucky, also said that he had previously seen a UFO when he was in his Freshman year in college at Morehead State University in 1976. He said the object was similar to what he saw on Friday, November 21, 2003. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
The Navy has been withholding information about reports of UFOs, according to a top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee after officially requesting more information on the mysterious encounters.
North Carolina Rep. Mark Walker, who is the Intelligence and Counterrorism subcommittee ranking member, asked Secretary Richard V. Spencer in July to outline the resources being used by the Navy to investigate the sightings. He also asked if officials have found physical proof to support the claims and whether they are aware of any private companies or foreign nations that have introduced breakthrough technologies that could explain the UFO sightings.
In a response through a brief letter on July 31, Navy Undersecretary Thomas Modly stated that the Department of the Navy takes such reports very seriously and continues to monitor them and investigate the sightings.
However, Walker said that the Navy seems to be unwilling to provide his committee with more information about the so-called unidentified aerial phenomena – the term the government prefers over the more traditional “unidentified flying objects” or UFOs. Walker has publicly expressed concern that the craft could pose a threat to American forces or U.S. territory.
He said that he is encouraged the Navy Under Secretary confirmed that encounters of unidentified flying objects are thoroughly investigated but at the same time frustrated with the lack of answers to specific questions about the threat that advanced aircraft flying in the U.S. airspace may pose.
Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher responded saying that the service is prepared to accommodate any further congressional requests for data. Gradisher explained that they hadn’t received any new requests for updates on this matter.
Walker specifically questioned the Navy on unidentified aerial phenomena or unidentified flying objects, not drones, citing reports of mysterious flying objects moving at speeds and displaying maneuvers that go well beyond what is thought to be technologically possible.
In July 16 letter, Walker asked Spencer a series of specific questions on the sightings, including if the Department continues to dedicate resources to investigating and tracking the claims and to what measure. Walker also asked the Department if they found physical evidence or otherwise that supports these claims. Walker believes in the possibility that the U.S. government agencies already know about the truth, but the rest of us don’t. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A dark, oval object which makes some maneuvers that nothing I know of can make today. The report was first filed through the NUFORC, and MUFON made an investigation. Kim has been kind enough to send me the original NUFORC and MUFON reports. I have made a short clip for your viewing. (B J)
The original NUFORC report goes as follows:
“About 12:45 PM my husband yelled for me to come outside, what I saw was shocking and disturbing a very large, dark colored disk shaped object was hovering in the sky just south of my home.
The object seemed to move in all directions (swoop from side to side and upside down) at times it looked as if it were floating then it would very quickly and smoothly fly further south and then come back.
At one point the object seemed to be on its side with the top facing us while in that position a very bright white light came from the object.
After a couple minutes the object slowly moved further up and further south, my husband ran in to get the camcorder and shot approx. 15-20 seconds of footage before the object was blocked by trees and longer in view. We have shown the footage to several people all were shocked and believe what they saw was a UFO.”

On Saturday, around 1700 hrs, I saw the following from my bedroom window in Veitsch, Styria. I have my pc there and was looking again like countless times towards Stanglalm (N.B. that is a local mountain south of my home). I saw 3 silent dark grey objects approx. 20-30 meters in length or diameter coming from the area of Sommerberg flying/gliding towards Stanz in Mürztal. My window was open and at first I thought I saw birds, it was absolutely quit outside, aeroplanes and helicopters make quite a sound. the three flew in a straight line after one other, the first two a few hundrred meters apart and the 3 about 10 second behind the second object at the apparently same height and direction. I knew they were objects rather than bird when the flew through some sort of electrical cloud, I could see numerous flashes of light on the “skin”/outer grey layer on each object. A bird would die instantly if caught in a lightning bolt and crash. I saw each object approx. 3-5 seconds, that was to short to get my olympus 800uz, as it takes 30-45 seconds to fire it up.

JULY 16, 2000 ………… EMPIRE BAY AUSTRALIA
Alison noticed an illuminated object over the water, hovering low on the horizon. The object had 8 square lights right around, it was football shaped with a white/gold glow and the well defined square lights were brighter than the rest of the object. The proximity estimated was quite close, approx 200-300 mtrs and elevation about a tree and a half above the water. The object was not as big as the Goodyear blimp which was not flying in that area and in fact not even in the air at that time on that day. The illumination made no noise, had no navigation lights, appeared as a “solid” light.
The illumination was larger than thumb and forefinger at full stretch at arms length, very large or very close, the witness felt the latter was the case. It was later briefly seen as the witness dropped her parents off to Umina as an illumination in the clouds, there was no beam under the cloud and the moon was visible to the R/H/S of the object although the night was somewhat cloudy. The duration of the main sighting was approx 10-15 mins and was reported to the witness by a local real estate agent as they were in casual conversation in a shop the next morning, who witnessed the same object at the same time.

In 1980 I had bought a house in Colchester Vermont, on camp Kinya road, near from route 2. My house was a couple of houses down from the corner of Clay Point and Camp Kinya road. In 1980 my wife and I were putting on a birthday party for my brother-in-law. Everyone started showing up after supper time. After a while I needed a break from the party noise, so went out to smoke a cigarette. I was thinking to myself what a great night it was. It was warm, bright sky, lots of stars, and a very quiet country night. I was looking at the stars when I saw something moving up by the stars, I was looking east. I thought maybe it was just my eyes playing tricks on me so I looked down to clear my vision. When I looked up again I noticed this light that looked like a star but it had no star like rays to it. It was in a different place than I had seen it before. It was getting closer to me from the stars. It was moving very slow. It was round, very bright but it was not a blinding light. I watched it for about 30 minutes moving towards me. By looking at it it seemed to be the size of a star. It still had a ways to go before it reached earth. It was moving erratically, it had no sense of direction where it wanted to go. After another 15 minutes of watching it was still coming toward me. It still had no direction falling out of the sky. Finally the light ball passed over me headed west. It looked like it was moving just above the trees. After it passed me it headed away from the ground. When it did I said to myself “what the hell is that”. I was trembling inside. It made no sounds. It seemed to be just floating. Then it started moving towards me again, it stopped behind the trees. It still seemed to be floating. It looked to be between 100 and 1000 feet of the ground at this time. It scared me because it had stopped. I wasn’t sure what would happen next. It felt like I couldn’t move. I was screaming at it your not going to take me. Screaming at seemed to break the trance like state I was in. I ran inside and said there was a ufo outside, they all laughed. I said come out and look for yourselves. My sister and her friend came back outside with me. We all looked up and it was still there in the same spot. I pointed at it and said there it is. After saying this the object took off at the speed of light. It looked to change in to a tear drop type shape as it took off. It headed north for about 3 seconds then veered to the east at a low altitude. I then lost sight of it. I got in my car to follow in the direction it went. I pulled onto route 2 and headed east coming to chimney corners store. I saw a pay phone with two old lady’s at it. One was on the phone. As I walked up to them they were saying they saw something crash on Cobble Hill mountain in Milton Vermont as they were driving. While they were on the phone I was looking in the direction they said it had crashed when I saw the light, still in a teardrop form, head south into space. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
KENS NOTE: I spoke to the witness today and he told me about this encounter. I though I would share this important event. I am in the process of investigating another case by this witness and he has seen some strange things over the years. Many people have more than one encounter and these craft seem to follow certain people around for them to see. The is definitely seems to be some kind of connection.
Objects of unknown origin buzzed a military facility on Cabañas Bay in 1967. The troops quartered at this installation were jolted out of bed shortly after midnight by a blast of machine gun fire from the sentry box manned by Isidro Puentes. A squad was rushed to the area, but the sentinel was not at his post. Dozens of spent rounds were later found in the area, completely crushed as if they had impacted a very solid object upon impact. Even more ominous was the discovery of burn marks that suggested the landing of a large object with an estimated weight of ten tons. The missing guard was found later in the morning, completely unconscious. He was taken to a military hospital, where he remained in shock and unable to speak for nearly seven days. The hapless soldier was then transported to a neurology unit, where scans showed that he had no brain damage, but still remained unresponsive. When he finally emerged from his trance-like state, the soldier told the medical staff and investigating officers that he had seen “strange lights” behind the trees, and upon investigation, was faced with a large object shaped like a “luminous sphere.” Believing that the object could be the spearhead of a U.S. invasion force, the soldier fired at it, and could remember little else.

Mitchell has gone on record about his controversial belief in extraterrestrial UFOs, and of a possible government cover-up. Dr. Herman Oberth, the father of astronautics and rocketry stated, “The Earth is being visited by aliens.” Edgar stated, “Recently, I appeared on television in New York with the Astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary who feels as I do that we must research the subject of UFOs with greater emphasis.” Astronaut Neil Armstrong, Tom Stafford, Gene Cernan and Buzz Aldrin have talked privately to friends, but all agree there is somebody out there. Gordon Cooper’s article entitled “Aliens Are Here” tells about his letter to the United Nations that stated in part, “I do believe UFOs exist and that the truly unexplained ones are from some other technically advanced civilization.”
Edgar told me, “He signed a contract with NASA not to reveal anything he saw regarding aliens and UFOs. However, all of his friends had seen them.” Edgar stated, “After my space flight, I was contacted by descendants of the original Roswell observers where he grew up, including the person who delivered the child-sized coffins to the Air Force to contain alien bodies. Another was one of the children of the deputy sheriff who was patrolling traffic around the site. They all seemed credible with their stories that the bodies found were alien.”
Edgar felt, “White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extraterrestrials were interested in. “They wanted to know about our military capabilities of the nuclear bomb wing at Roswell. My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to nuclear war and help create peace on Earth.” He said, “I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War,” he continued. “They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles. ”Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft. “There was a lot of activity in those days.”
Ben Rich, Former CEO of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works stated, “Everything you can imagine we already know how to do, but these technologies are so locked up in black projects it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. We can even take ET home.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
AMATEUR ASTROMOMER’S PHOTO OF A UFO CROSSING THE MOON
I was in Westerly, Rhode Island videotaping the moon, a close up during day time when suddenly I noticed through my camera viewfinder an UFO crossing the screen. Once disappeared from my viewfinder I look up and I did not see it again. It was very far away in comparison with the moon. It looked like an orb of light. There was not stray of smoke or any other sign like an airplane. It was moving in a diagonal line from north to south west (from my stand point) I thought it was an UFO. I showed the video to a couple a guys who were at short distance from me and they thought it was a flying source. I kept looking up and continue videotaping the moon in case I can see it again but nothing happened.
This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer State Director for MUFON Rhode Island.
KENS NOTE: This is the perfect example of what amateur astronomers are capturing ever day. Seems like most of the UFO sightings are from people who are smoking outside of their homes at night. You will never see a UFO unless your are looking up into the sky….Simple as that.
Summary: A VERY large, Boomerang-shaped object tracked across the sky in a NE direction just after full dark.
I wish I had not waited months to reports this, but until recently did not know who to report it to. I saw a television program that described your field researchers and I liked that your set scientific and observational standards. I do not like wild speculation and absurd conjectures as I often see in deranged programs like UFO Hunters or whatever it is called. I like mysteries to be approached rationally. This brings me back to the night of August 11, 2010. I have long wondered if anyone else had reported anything for that night. Soon after the event, I posted an oblique statement on my Facebook page “Did anyone else see that?” simply so I would not forget the date and time. I do not jump to conclusions, but I have also failed to find a prosaic explanation for the event. There were two other people with me who saw the strange object. I will leave their names off of here for the time being. [They live nearby, but I have not asked their permission to include them in this report.] We were standing in my driveway just after full dark. It was likely between 8 and 9pm. Checking the time for full darkness at the time of the year should some up with a very close approximate time. There was a bright moon shinning in the in the southeast quadrant of the sky. I think if it were not for that, we would have seen nothing. I was facing north toward my companions as we stood there talking. The evening was pleasant and it had grown dark. It was not unusual for us to stand outside and talk although we were about to say goodnight. One of my companions was looking behind me and saw it first. She made a gasping noise or other sound while looking into the sky behind me. I turned to see what she was looking at. We live about 20 miles from Philadelphia International Airport in the town of Richwood, NJ and frequently have large numbers of commercial airliners circling overhead. I expected something of this sort. What I saw was very different. I turned to look south and saw it almost immediately or at least the impression of it. I also said a rather surprising swear word which I would not normally use in this company. The object was moving quickly in a east-north-east direction [toward the Delaware River and Chester, PA] and at first it was just a suggestion of movement because it was black against black. It was simply a different shape of black flying with no lights at all. The moonlight caught on the shape and revealed it as the sharp-angled boomerang without further detail to the surface. It annoys me to report it as an angular boomerang shape because I know there have been many other reports like that. It was very large in the sky. Much larger than the commercial airliners we see daily on their approach to Philadelphia. I do not know what altitude the circling airliners are at this point in their approach, but that is probably not too difficult to find out. Their windows are easily visible. This was far larger than those. There were no airplanes in sight at the time of the event.
The trouble is that for it to be that size it would have to have been either unusually low and close to us or farther away and unbelievably vast in size. The object cruised quickly by without the slightest sound or change in speed or altitude. I hoped it would pass in front of the moon, but unfortunately it moved “beneath” where the moon was and was quickly lost to view in the dark. It was moving fast but without knowing the distance I would not guess at its speed. It was gone before there was much chance of further reaction. I turned to my companions and we were all equally dumbfounded. There was nothing more to do except head inside. I typed the note on Facebook so I would not forget, but I also had hoped someone else might say something. It was a long shot. No one else reported anything.
I have seen stealth bombers flying in the desert and they are huge. This object was at LEAST that large, but I felt it was larger still. The stealth was my best suspect as I racked my brain, but it does not make sense. For a stealth to be that large, it would have to be too close. Why would a bomber be flying so low in a densely populated area? A stealth can easily fly above local air traffic. Flying without lights would be extremely dangerous around this crowded airspace even if you were training the crew in radar evasion. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I have seen flying saucers since august 18, 1980. This was my 8th UFO experience, but I have never seen orbs, only spaceships. These were orbs, I think, not what I usually experience. I first noticed the object before dinner, but I just blew it off. We had dinner on the beach, overlooking the water. My wife noticed it after dinner, when we went to leave. I immediately saw a large bright light again, much brighter than the first time, approximately 45 earlier. I knew immediately what it was, a UFO. We just purchased a camera a few days before, and we went to the waters edge, and started filming. My wife did. The object, there were
4-5 of them, were extremely bright, varying in size from a pin head to a quarter. I estimate about half a mile to a mile away from shoreline. They moved independently, and went from bright small in size, to immensely bright and huge, maybe the size of a quarter. They moved up and down, remained stationary, and one of them went over land when big, over I would assume sandy hook area, 10-15 miles north of where we were.
There were 6-7 people on the beach watching and filming as well. It was amazing to see. My feelings…very excited, very controlled. I wanted to attract them, and stood in the light than ran across the water and did jumping jacks to attract it. It did not respond. The objects got extremely big and bright maybe 3-4 times. These actions unfortunately were not captured on video of photos. I told my wife to take video, to make sure we had it on video. I spoke to my cousin on the cell phone throughout part of the experience, because he knows of all the things I have experienced, and I was describing the scene to him as it happened. I am very lucky to have experienced what I have throughout my life. We never lost sight of the objects. We left after about an hour or so. We saw amazing detail of 2 orbs around a tremendous bright round light, sometimes two bright circles of light. Unfortunately, I do not know how to submit this to you right now, but will have my wife do so in the next few days to a week. You will be amazed, or maybe not, since this is probably common but it is amazing, and I would like an explanation as to what this is. I believe it is extra terrestrial. My wife thinks it was secret military craft, but she also said she did not know what it was. She does not believe in UFO’S, since she has never seen one, but then, she could not explain what we saw.

KEN’S NOTE: This area has been very active with sightings over the years. Ft Monmouth is nearby and has a two mile dock that protrudes out into the bay. Military ships can be seen there often. The bay leads to the Varrazano Bridge and eventually Manhattan. Check it-out on Google Earth.
This case is under investigation by Bob Spearing of MUFON New Jersey.
