10:30 – 10:45 p.m. A witness came forward and called me from Smithers, B.C. after she read a short article in the Smithers Interior Newspaper about a sighting of a pink object which was witnessed by another lady over the Smithers Ski Hill Road on April 8, 2004. The witness was on her way to work as she works the graveyard shift. As she traveled around a corner on Harris Road by Harris Auto Wrecking, she saw a extremely large bright pink object low in the sky. The lady said she had never seen anything like it in all the years she lived in the area and also wondered if it might have been an airplane coming in for a landing at the Smithers airport. She told me the object had to have been the size of a full moon and on the outer edge of the object the color was a much lighter pink in color. As the woman drove along, she said it passed overhead at approx: tree top level and at approx: 100 to 200 feet away from her in distance.
As the lady and the object passed one another she slowed her truck down and turned around to watch the object move slowly into the distance and as she watched it finally just blinked out. When the woman continued on her journey, after seeing the strange object, she told me that she was questioning herself, “did I just see that”! Later that evening and at her workplace, her and another lady went outside for a coffee break and the witness mentioned that she had seen something very strange when she was on her way to work. I asked the lady if she thought it might have been a flare or even fireworks someone had maybe set off. The witness said she has never seen a flare or fireworks travel horizontally just over tree top level and for such a long distance. There was no sound noted. The object was reported to be visible for approx: one minute. This same object has been seen twice on two different occasions in the Smithers area. Thank you to the witness for the report.

It was November 20, 2022 at 10:30 PM. I was at home, which is in Blount county Tennessee. I was fixing to go to bed, so I went out to smoke a cigarette one last time. I noticed that the stars were unusually bright that night, so I walked to the edge of the porch and was looking at them when I noticed an object very high in the sky. I took many pictures of it with my phone, but only one of which showed the object very well. I had to enlarge the picture to get the object to be a good size on my screen. It didn’t really move because I stood there and watched it for about 30 minutes. At which time I decided to go to bed because I have to be at work at 5:30 in the morning. I have no idea what it was but you can tell that it was a physical object because light was reflecting off of the side of it. I am attaching some pictures; they are all variations of the same picture. A couple of them I messed with the brightness, definition, contrast, and things like that.
I currently work for the post office and have military clearance to deliver mail out to the Dugway Proving Grounds. Because I typically lose my cell service once I cross the threshold at the military gate, there’s a small dirt lot just outside the gate where I will normally sit and go through my emails before losing my coverage on base. That’s where this incident happened. It was 6:28 a.m. and something had caught my eye that was abnormal in the morning skies above the proving grounds. What I witnessed was a very large silver object with four extremely bright lights on the side moving from north to south and that disappeared into a wispy cloud. The cloud itself was weird. it was such a light cloud that you should’ve been able to watch an object move through the cloud…but that’s not what happened! Because of the timing—there was a solid stream of cars arriving on base—I can’t be the only witness to this, there have to be hundreds! After asking security about the incident, I was told that seeing things out there is a common thing! I myself don’t want to see another one. It has changed my perspective of what is, which to me is disturbing. If need be, I can draw what I saw. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A woman in Silverton, Oregon, reported seeing and photographing an unusual, rapidly moving aerial object, according to her testimony in Case 125164. A cropped image of the object is reproduced above. The witness was in her backyard at 5:48 p.m. on September 13, 2022, when her attention was drawn towards the fast-moving object in the sky. She was able to acquire her cell phone and take a single photo of the UFO, which appears discoidal with an apparent superstructure and central, underside aperture. The reporting witness’s brief summation of the incident in the CMS Form 1 simply notes the object “was going at a fast speed but not fast enough for me to not take a photo. Came from the west and disappeared to the east.” Oregon MUFON Field Investigator Dean Fassnidge closed this case as Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
I am a storm spotter with the National Weather service and accustomed to seeing things in the sky. During the “off-season” I like to shoot slow motion video of lightening whenever storms pass through. That’s what I was doing at the time. Since lightening is unpredictable, I hit record, let it run for about a minute, then stop. I’ll do this the length of the storm then review the recordings when I am finished. Upon review I realized that I had captured something on video that I cannot explain. This particular video I had hit record and realized I was in standard video mode and not slow motion, so I stopped it within a few seconds, switched to slow motion and went on. As such the video is very short. I’ve asked my peers in meteorology what they think it is and no one has an answer. That is what brought me here. I’m at a loss for an explanation. The first video is the original and the second is brightened up to see the object more clearly. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. KENS NOTE: The above image was extracted from the video.
I had a telephone call from a couple who reside in Nelson, B.C. who witnessed an odd sight. They report that while traveling north along the Kootenay River on highway 3A they saw what appeared to be an egg shaped object which sat stationary over the river. Around the center of it was a broken ring of blue lights, they said there was a good number of these lights which were very bright and not flashing. The witnesses guessed the object was at an altitude of about 500 to 600 feet above the river. The husband who was driving wanted to stop to investigate this unusual sight, but due to his wife being frighten they kept moving but at a slower pace as he was certainly curious to know what this was. A short distance down the highway his wife looked behind to see if it was still there, but she could not see any thing.
They said whatever it was had disappeared or turned out it’s lights. The husband estimates that the object was 40 to 50 feet in length at the most. They heard no sound, but they told me the windows were rolled up in their vehicle and the radio on. One other thing they commented on, the object having a completely smooth surface to it, or at least the areas they could see clearly. The husband said he is kicking himself now that he didn’t stop to have a good look at the object. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
A reported sighting of a UFO with occupants seen through its windows, having a number of similarities to both the Squyres and the Knight cases, occurred in Connecticut, five years later, on December 16, 1957.
It was investigated by Richard Hall, former Assistant Director of NICAP and currently NICAP’s Research Consultant, and Isabel Davis, currently of the NICAP staff.
Mrs. Mary M. Starr, a resident of Old Saybrook and a former teacher with a Master’s Degree from Yale, told the NICAP investigators that she had been alone in her home on the night of December 15.
“I went to bed early,” she said, “about 10:00 o’clock. Some time between two and three in the morning, I was awakened by a bright light in my room. I looked out the window and there was what I first thought was a crippled airplane in my back garden.
But when I got my eyes really open, I saw that it was a cigar-shaped object, brightly lit and with square portholes, hovering just above my clothesline. I could see men inside. . .”
The object, no more than ten feet from the north side of Mrs. Starr’s home, was approximately 20 to 30 feet long and dark grey or black in color.
It hovered motionless about five feet above the ground, between the house and the tool shed. She saw no wings, fins, or other appendages. Through its lighted windows Mrs. Starr saw two figures that passed each other, walking in opposite directions.
I could see that it [the object] was so shallow that the men could not have been more than three and a half or four feet tall,” she told the investigators.
The occupants’ right arms were raised but no hands were visible. They wore a kind of jacket that “flared out” at the base, and their heads were unusual – square or rectangular, red-orange in color, and with a brighter red “bulb” in the center.
She thought they might possibly be wearing some kind of helmets. The lower portions of their bodies were below Mrs. Starr’s sightlines. She saw nothing else in the object, such as chairs or instruments.
A third being came into view from the left. As Mrs. Starr leaned forward to see more clearly, the portholes faded and the entire shell of the object began glowing brightly (compare with Mrs. Knight’s report). From the top end closest to the witness there arose a kind of six-inch “antenna” that oscillated and sparkled.
After five minutes of glowing steadily, the antenna was retracted and the craft began to move. It retraced its original path, gliding smoothly in the direction from which it had apparently arrived. It then made a very sharp right-angle turn, appearing oval in shape.
The hull had turned a dull grayish-blue and small, circular lights now outlined the entire rim. The UFO dipped and undulated, following the contours of a small depression to the north of the witness’ house, then tilted sharply and shot up into the sky at terrific speed, in total silence.
Since most of the other houses in her neighborhood were unoccupied at that time of year, Mrs. Starr was the sole witness to this strange appearance, although there had been previous reports during the preceding weeks of objects sighted in the area.
Because of her background, and because she had no conceivable reason to invent or embellish such a story, neither Miss Davis nor Mr. Hall could find any reason to dismiss her report out of hand. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
It was approximately 2pm when Harold A. Dahl, the captain of a coastguard patrol based on Tacoma, Washington, had his amazing UFO sighting. Dahl and his crew of U.S. coastguards were patrolling the southern end of Puget Sound, Washington – a place abundant with islands and fjords – when they put the launch into an eastern bay off Maury Island, a small, thinly populated island some three miles from the mainland. At the time there were two members of Dahl’s crew, his son and a dog on board. As they entered the bay, Dahl looked up from the wheel and was startled to see “six very large doughnut-shaped machines” in the air. He judged them to be approximately 2000 feet up, virtually overhead, stationary and silent.
Intelligent Balloons? Initially he thought they were balloons until one decided to descend, followed by the other five. This lone machine seemed to be in trouble. Dahl though – although the others closely followed it at a range of approximately 200 feet above. It continued on a downwards movement until it was directly overhead, about 500 feet above the water. They remained totally silent and Dahl couldn’t see any visible means of propulsion – they didn’t appear to have any engines.
Metallic Craft Dahl reckoned they were each about 100 feet in diameter and each had a hole in its center, about 25 feet in diameter. The clouds were low and thundery, but when the sunlight broke through, Dahl noted that it reflected from the metallic surfaces of the strange craft. However, there was not one brilliance, but many. In addition, the craft appeared to have what appeared to be ‘portholes’ equally spaced around the outside of their hulls. Dahl also reported what looked like dark and circular windows on the inside and bottoms of them. Dahl later said, “Fearing that the central and lowermost machine was going to crash in the bay, we pulled our boat over to the beach and got out our harbor patrol camera. I took four photos of these balloons, as I still thought they were. All the time, the five were circling around the one which was stationery. Five minutes passed, and then one of the circling machines detached itself from the formation and came right down to the stationery one.
It seemed to touch it and stayed motionless for about four minutes. Then we heard a dull thud, and the central craft spewed out what looked like thousands of newspapers from the inside of its center. But these falling fragments turned out to be a white type of very light metal that fluttered to earth, and also fell into the bay. The machine then seemed to hail on us in the bay, and over the beach, black and darker type metals, which hit the beach and the bay. All these latter fragments seemed molten. Steam rose when they hit the water. We ran for shelter under a cliff and got behind logs. My son’s arm was hit by a falling fragment of metal, and our dog was killed. Then the rain of metal stopped. The strange craft silently lifted and went westward towards the Pacific. All the time, the center one remained in the formation. We found the fallen metal too hot to touch, for some time. But when it cooled, we loaded a large number of pieces into our launch.”
Electrical Malfunctions When he climbed back towards the launch, Dahl found that his radio refused to work. “When I started out on patrol, my radio had been in perfect order. But now, the static was so great, I could not make contact with our shore station! Yet the weather could not have caused all that interference. Our wheel-house had been hit by the rain of metal, and damaged. I started up the engines and returned to Tacoma, where my boy had to be attended in hospital. I reported the adventure to my superior officer, Mr Fred L. Chrisman; but I could see he did not believe me! I gave him the camera and the films and also the metal fragments we had collected in the island. Later, Chrisman went out to the island to look for the 20 tones of metal which I judged had been spewed from the strange machine. When my films were developed, they showed the strange aircraft, but the negatives were covered with white spots, as though they had been exposed to some radiation.” Apparently specimens of the strange metal were taken to Chicago University for analysis, who described them as “metal that had fallen from a great height in the sky and landed in sand.”
Strange Geology! Some skeptics have said that Maury Island is rich in this type of metal as geological and natural deposits. Further analysis reported that the metal was an alloy of calcium, iron, zinc, and titanium. Also present were aluminum, manganese, copper, magnesium, silicon, nickel, lead, strontium and chromium together with traces of silver, tin and cadmium. This seems a very remarkable alloy to be found in a natural state all over Maury Island. One odd note added, was that the content of calcium was unusually high and that it had not been oxidized, as it does when heated – in terrestrial conditions.
Cosmic Protection One theory which was put forward at the time was that the calcium had been cast into the hull of the strange machines to absorb the lethal cosmic rays out in space beyond our earth’s orbit.
Enter the Men in Black Not only is this story extremely fascinating, if only by pre-dating similar events – the metal seems similar to that allegedly recovered the following month at the Roswell crash site. However, the following day Dahl was interrogated by what could be one of the first incidents involving MIB (Men in Black): According to Dahl, the following morning a strange man drove to his house and got out of a black Buick car of sedan type. He was dressed in a dark suit, was around 40 years old and in Dahl’s words, looked like “an insurance agent”. Dahl got out his own car and drove downtown – with the stranger following him. Why he didn’t use the stranger’s car for a lift is not recorded.
Threatening Warnings Over breakfast in a hotel, Dahl was asked some curious ‘personal’ questions; Stranger: “Are you happy at your job, and in your family? “Dahl: “What the blazes are you getting at?” At this point, the stranger merely gave a peculiar smile and proceeded to tell Dahl of the previous events on Maury Island. This conversation puzzled Dahl as, so far, he had not told anyone about his experience and there had been no one on the island apart from his crew – and he did not think they had been talking. “Mr Dahl,” said the stranger, still smiling, “you had better forget what you have seen, and stop talking. Silence is the best thing for you and your family. You have seen what you ought not to have seen!” The stranger then abruptly got up and left the hotel.
Further Verifications Kenneth Arnold later arrived on the scene after being asked to investigate the strange story. Arnold later interviewed Dahl’s superior officer, Chrisman, who told his own fantastic story: – Two days after Dahl had reported to me about these strange machines over Maury Island, I went out in the patrol launch. It was on the morning of June 23rd. I looked at some of the tons of metal on the beach. As I did so, one of the strange aircraft suddenly appeared from nowhere! It circled the bay, banked at an angle of 10 degrees, and shot up into the center of a cumulus cloud, high in the sky. I have never seen any aircraft before go into the center of such a cloud. It is very rough in there. The strange thing looked like a large inner tube to me. It was not squashed as Dahl had said. It had large portholes round the whole hull, and its brassy, golden surface seemed burled. I noticed, too, an observation window in it. When the sun shone on it, it was unusually brilliant. I picked up a load of the fragments of fallen metal and went back with them in the launch to Tacoma.”
Military Investigations Arnold then spoke to Lieutenant Frank Brown of the U.S. military intelligence, who had also seen the fragments of metal when he flew over the location in a B.29 bomber. He sketched, for Arnold, photos that had come to intelligence. One of the sketches showed a photograph taken some three weeks previously by Wm. A. Rhodes over Phoenix, Arizona. It showed a strange vessel, looking like the heel of a shoe, ie. parabolic in shape, with a hole near one of the curves. Rhodes had said that there were two tails of vapor trailing from the edges of the ‘heel’. One even more remarkable picture shown to Arnold looked exactly like Arnold’s own (famous) sighting of nine strange machines flying in formation on June 24th 1947. The startling thing was that this picture was taken by a Captain F.W. Banner of the British barque, ‘Lady of the Lake’, in mid-ocean off the coast of Liberia on March 22nd, 1870 – 77 years BEFORE Arnold’s sighting. It looked like a half moon with a tail in it, or like a half-peak in the center of the disc. The object was flying against the wind and was visible for half an hour. This account seems to have all the hallmarks of a classic sighting; strange metallic craft, fragments of strange metal recovered and even being followed by a MIB encounter.
Date of Sighting: November or December of 1971 Time of Sighting: Night Location of Sighting: Over Nuclear Power Plant in Pickering, Ontario, Canada Latitude: 43.84 Degrees North Longitude: 79.08 Degrees West Number of Witnesses: One Weather: Sketch Shows That Skies Were Clear.
Description: I haven’t spoke of it until now. There was one other boy that saw it because he ran out on to the street to see if anyone else saw what I did. His description matched mine. It was in November or December of 1971. I lived as close as one could to the Pickering Nuclear Plant in Ontario, Canada. I’m not sure how long the Plant was up and running. (I would estimate that it had been running 4 or 5 years.) What I saw was this: It was outside the atmosphere, that I could tell. It was at night so it stood out against the sky. It looked like a pinwheel fireworks. It was still and spinning, throwing out what looked like sparks or light tails? It had me mesmerized until in my peripheral to the right I noticed a single red light. I dismissed it and continued watching it. The red light began moving towards the pinwheel from a great distance very slowly from my point of view. At first I thought it was a plane, but there was no sound. As I watched it further it appeared to be approaching this pinwheel. And at the very moment it came in contact they both vanished. The red dot was much smaller against the pinwheel. So, that’s what I saw. Any ideas?
Comments: Unusual aerial activity has been reported over other nuclear plants and over nuclear weapons facilities. I have no idea what the witness sighted. Given that the date of the sighting is unknown and that the sighting is over 35 years old little investigation can be performed. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
Here is a photo that I took one night (on or about 7 Feb 2010) while at our office in the MLG compound on Camp Leatherneck Afg. I know that ALL of my friends on FB that were with us saw the same thing. They were up there long enough that people were leaving. They were up there for a long time without moving. They went away for a while and then came back. They didn’t move or blink or make any noise. They looked like they were really high up but there was nothing to base that on. Pretty cool event. Now that I have seen it on TV it is super cool that we were able to witness it. 1. I was in my office in the MLG Compound on Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. 2. One of the Marines in the Company came into the office to tell us about the lights.
3. At first, we thought maybe flares or weather balloons, but they didn’t change alt. or fade out or fall. 4. As my attachments show there were 7 equally spaced lights in the sky that did not appear to move or change. 5. Very interested to see the lights, so many people saw them and didn’t even stop to look at them. There was a lot going on during the day but nothing to distract us during the sighting. 6. I hate to say it but after maybe 45 minutes we just went back inside to work. I have 4 more pics they are sharper but since I was moving, they make the light appear as if they were moving.

Brazilian pilot Haroldo Westendorf, 39, was flying over Pelotas when he encountered an enormous pyramid or cone-shaped UFO, with 8-10 sides; it was 100 meters in diameter and 70 meters high.
Westendorf was able to fly around the base of the object three times, at one point coming as close as 40 meters. Then, out of an opening at the top of the craft, a smaller classic disc-shaped UFO emerged and flew off at tremendous speed.
Three air traffic controllers and others on the ground also witnessed the event.
Perhaps the most impressive UFO story told during the recent Brazilian World UFO Forum was that of Haraldo Westendorf, who made news headlines a year ago when he allegedly flew his private plane within a few dozen meters of an enormous unidentified flying object.
Westendorf is 40 years old, a father of three children and a successful businessman. He is also an avid private pilot rated for acrobatic flying.
The following account is based directly on his one-hour presentation at the Brazilian UFO conference, which included several detailed illustrations.
Westendorf says he took off in his single-engine Piper Apache [correction: the plane was actually an Embraer EMB-712, the Brazilian version of the Piper Cherokee Archer II] from the city of Pelotas near the southernmost tip of Brazil on the morning of November 5, 1996.
It was to be a routine recreational flight of the kind he takes for fun whenever time allows.
On this occasion, he had been in the air only about 12 minutes and was flying at an altitude of 5,000 feet over a large lake some five miles southeast of Pelotas when he saw ahead of him an enormous aerial object. The time was about 10:30 a.m.
He radioed the Pelotas tower to learn if they could see the object from the ground. They confirmed that the object was visible to them and asked him for a close-range report.
Westendorf then decided to fly as close as he could.
Westendorf emphasizes that he did not believe in UFOs and says this accounts for his initial willingness to fly close to the object. He didn’t know he might be in danger.
When he got close to the object, he realized that in his twenty years of piloting experience he had never seen or heard of anything like it.
Since he had done stunt training in the United States and had also flown in France, he had become acquainted with some very advanced and exotic aircraft. But he knew that this was not an airplane.
Westendorf showed several detailed color drawings of the object, with his own plane drawn to scale alongside it. He describes the object as a faceted cone, flat on the bottom with a rounded point on top.
On each of the eight or ten sloping side panels were three large bulges, like triangle-shaped bay windows on the side of a house — but they did not look like windows. The entire surface was brown in color.
The structure was about 70 meters (225 feet) high and about 100 meters (325 feet) in diameter, big enough to fill nearly an entire soccer field if landed. His own plane, less than 6 meters wide, was tiny by comparison.
Westendorf says he spent about 12 to 14 minutes in close proximity to the object, trying to see as much as he could. Although the Pelotas air tower does not have radar, he believes the airport radar at Curitiba (nearly 450 nautical miles northeast of his position) tracked the whole encounter.
However, officials at Curitiba deny this.
The object was spinning around slowly and moving southeast toward the nearby seacoast at a speed of about 60 nautical miles per hour. Westendorf managed to fly entirely around the base of the object three times.
At one point, he says, his wingtip came within about 40 meters of the object.
After his third lap around the object, Westendorf noticed that the rounded top seemed to disappear, leaving what looked like an open hole at the top.
Then he saw, emerging from inside the object, a classic flying saucer. It rose sideways, its long axis vertical until it cleared the top of the larger object, then tipped down to assume its normal orientation and departed at tremendous speed.
Westendorf said that this saucer was about 10 meters in diameter, or nearly twice as wide as his own plane, and he thinks it flew away at more than Mach 10. The saucer showed no indication of noticing Westendorf’s presence nearby.
As soon as the saucer disappeared, Westendorf decided to try to fly over the top of the object. Brazilian media later reported that he wanted to fly his plane into the interior of the object, but he says he never even considered that.
He only hoped for a peek through the opening.
To get more altitude, he flew his plane several hundred meters away from the object, turned around and began a steep climb. He noticed that the object was now rotating much faster.
Then he saw brilliant beams of red light shoot from the top of the object toward the sky. He quickly abandoned his plan to fly over the top.
Then, to his amazement, the object rose straight up at tremendous speed. For the first time, Westendorf was scared, because he believed the object’s rapid acceleration might produce a shock wave of turbulence that could overwhelm his own plane.
As a trained pilot, he knew that air traffic controllers recommend staying at least three minutes behind a large aircraft to avoid such turbulence.
He estimated that the unidentified object probably weighed at least three times as much as a 747 jumbo jet, so its shock wave should be huge — and he was only a few hundred meters away.
He quickly began emergency procedures in case his plane went into a spin or a stall. But to his surprise, he did not encounter any turbulence.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration might have recorded an unidentified flying object (UFO) slamming into the International Space Station (ISS) on March 19.
A British UFO enthusiast named Graham claimed that the orb-like object that struck the ISS was “intelligent-controlled.” He explained that the orb appeared to have changed direction after the impact. It also stayed bright while it hurtled back into the darkness.
“As I was watching the footage, the object struck the ISS close to the camera on the station, I flinched as I was not expecting that to happen,” he said. “The crew was performing a port relocation in the Soyuz craft to move it to the space-facing side of the station to make way for the arrival of the new crew members.”
NASA clip shows weird orb hitting the ISS
The mysterious event was seen on NASA’s livestream of a port relocation maneuver by the ISS crew. A camera installed on the ISS initially showed the Soyuz capsule and a thin film of smoke against a black background. After a while, a white, luminous, “perfectly spherical” orb emerged from behind the capsule and zoomed past it, heading straight toward the space station. The supposed UFO then quickly bounced and changed its direction by drifting to the left.
“The object appears to change course and moves away from the Soyuz and the ISS at increasing speed,” Graham said. “Another thing that I found interesting is the object does not seem to lose any brightness as it approaches the top of the screen and goes into shadow. Is this an indication of self-illumination?”
The UFO enthusiast, who runs a YouTube channel called “Conspiracy Depot,” also noticed an elongated object that darted from the center of the screen. He suggested that this could be “watching over” the ISS.
Many viewers expressed their fascination with the footage, saying that the supposed UFO was unlike anything they had seen before.
“I’ve never seen one of these orbs in space either but have seen plenty in videos on earth,” one person commented. “I do think more than likely the cigar-shaped thing is a craft.”
Another agreed that spherical UFOs were common on the planet and added: “Also anything that doesn’t go in a straight line is definitely intelligently controlled.”
But not all agreed. Others opined that the object was just space debris passing by the ISS.
Disclosures are mounting with upcoming UFO report
Graham surmised that more information on UFO sightings will surface as June draws near. The Department of Defense (DoD) and other intelligence agencies will be submitting a report on past UFO sightings on the first day of that month.
The report was mandated by an order included in this year’s appropriations bill.
Graham also noted that disclosures about past UFO sightings had been mounting recently. Just last month former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe disclosed that the Pentagon has evidence of UFOs that could not be explained by known technology. These included flying objects that broke the sound barrier without a sonic boom. The ex-intel chief revealed that there were more of these sightings than had been made public.
I am a pilot for a major US airline. We were flying a red eye from Las Vegas to Cincinnati. Throughout the flight all night, there was chatter on both Guard frequency (121.5) and our ATC frequencies about aircraft seeing strange things. A bunch of aircraft saw something over Pueblo Colorado about an hour to 90 minutes prior to our sighting (we didn’t see whatever was over Pueblo, just heard radio chatter on it). At about 0330 EST, we had just passed over Kansas City and the Captain said something like “whoa, what was that?!?!” I asked him what he saw, and he said, “it looked like a slow-moving meteor.” He had the cockpit lights on full bright to keep us awake so I recommended we turn the lights down to get a better look. He agreed and we dimmed the cockpit.
A short time later, we both saw a bright orb of light off in the distance, bearing about 070 or 11:30 clock code from our nose (we were heading roughly 085ish from memory). The light was extremely bright, similar to a night space shuttle launch I had seen decades prior. It did not turn the sky blue at night like the space shuttle, but it was VERY luminescent. We used parachute flares when I flew jets in the military and the brightest of the three lights was exponentially brighter than a parachute flare (and it wasn’t Venus, both the Captain and I were familiar with Venus being bright and even talked about it). We then we saw a second light which was dimmer flying around the main one (this was NOT stars, satellites, Autokinesis, or somatagraphic illusion). Shortly after we saw a third that was very dim. We would not have seen this if we had not seen the bright light initially.
We witnessed these lights for well over 20 minutes as we flowed east to Cincinnati. The sighting was not continuous as the lights would fade out or disappear then come back a few minutes later in the same area (11:30 ish off our nose). We saw these until we got closer to Cincinnati and a high cirrus layer of clouds blocked our view (also from our descent on the instrument arrival). There were no clouds in the area of the sightings, it was a crystal-clear night. One thing I am not sure of at all is whether these lights were flowing east with us or just so bright that we could see them over 200 miles away. We were cruising at 0.8 mach so if we saw these for over 20 minutes, we would have covered 160 nautical miles. These lights always remained at our 11:30 out the windscreen. Instinct says the objects were hovering over an area and were just so bright we could see them from a great distance, but this is just a hunch. I will share a little more if someone deems this worth investigating. Some I would like to keep discreet. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Leaked videos of a pyramid-shaped UFO have been taking the internet by storm. The Pentagon and the Department of Defense (DOD) confirm the videos were taken by Naval staff. And the Pentagon says they are the subject of “Ongoing examinations” by the DOD’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. The UAPTF was charted and set up in August.
UAPTF is promising to release a detailed June 1st report about recent sightings of UFOs. Since 2015 there have been a number of reports of unidentified aircraft lurking around various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace.
Pyramid-shaped UFO Investigated by UAPTF
New York Post reports the grainy video footage taken in 2019, off of the San Diego coast, has never before been seen. The video shows pyramid-shaped unmanned aerial vehicles buzzing at least three Navy warships during military drills. According to the ship’s logs, the video shows a UFO following a US destroyer for 90 minutes.
Video captures a pyramid-shaped UFO flying overhead. Other photos reveal more than one additional UFO described as a sphere-shaped “metallic blimp.”
No one has been able to explain more than half of the UFO encounters in the last year. And in 2021 and 2022 there have been an increasing number of UFO sightings. This is one of the surprising facts outlined in the Senate Intel report done by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and submitted to Congress.
The U.S. is acknowledging more than ever that UFOs, now known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, need to be investigated.
NASA recently pulled 16 space scientists together for an expanded study of UFOs. We know that “they” are out there. We just don’t know what “they” are.
Senate Intel Report describes classified UFOs
The 22-page report details 366 cases of UFO encounters in 2021. And alleges that more than 150 of them remain unexplained.
In an interview, Daily Mail reporter Josh Boswell explains that “The sources that I have been telling me they just don’t know what these things are. You know, there’s a proportion of these cases, 366 in this classified report, that’s going to Congress probably tomorrow that are explained, that are Chinese drones, for example.”
“The unexplained ones just have no clue, because these things are moving in ways that we just don’t understand. At hypersonic speeds, and then they just turn on a dime. I mean, it’s incredible,” Boswell said.
Due to the prevalence of the stigma and retaliation against those who report encounters with extraterrestrial objects, it is becoming harder to do so, with an increased frequency.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has acknowledged the importance of addressing the issue of UFOs and aviation safety.
For decades, commercial pilots did not report UFO sightings for fear of retaliation. Those who did report were often penalized on the job or at the very least stigmatized for their encounters with UAPs. NOTE: The above image is real but from an Australian case file.
I was watching TV and the dogs needed to go out. When I got up to put them outside a little voice in my head said to bring my phone. On my way out the voice said to check the settings. I checked the settings to make sure I had them right 60 fps and resolution at 3840×2160. I used no digital zoom. I did 2x optical zoom that way there is no digital enhancement. I figured I can enlarge it on my computer. Well, it worked great. The video is about 2:00 minutes long but the object is only seen for about 35-40 seconds. When I zoomed in to the individual frames, I was amazed at what I saw. A glowing sphere with purple, yellow, red, green and blue “flames” coming off it. The “flames” look more like plasma coming off the object. I will post some sequential frames from the video. Remember each picture is 1/60th of a second. You will need to zoom in on the object with whatever program you use to open the picture. Most will let you zoom in really well. I wanted to upload more but you can only do so many. The day before this sighting I saw a triangle craft that had flashing bright white lights. But that’s for another time. There are magnetic anomalies here that I have documented too. I will put video up after it’s been looked at.
On August 18th pilot Mark Hulsey was flying a charter jet off the coast of Los Angeles. coast.
He notified the controller that “We’ve got a few aircraft to our north here and he’s going around in circles, much higher altitude than us. Any idea what they are?”
Hulsey radioed in 23 minutes later saying that four aircraft had joined the three aircraft he reported earlier. And the seven UFOs were flying between 5,000 and 10,000 feet above his plane.
“They just keep going in circles. I was an F-18 pilot in the Marine Corps, and I’m telling you, I’ve done many intercepts, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Hulsey is recorded saying.
According to Hansen, the UFO activity was “seen by upwards of 15 different commercial flights. And at least six pilots are willing to go on record with their names and everything, if asked to do so, by any investigative agencies.”
Later in August, Chris Van Voorhis, a 63-year-old veteran pilot observed three to five bright objects flying in a circular motion. He was flying over the Pacific when he watched, for hours, what he described as lights running on a circular “racetrack.”
Van Voorhis claimed the lights may have been in low-orbit space. But it couldn’t have been Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites since they appeared to be moving in different directions.
Other airlines were said to have radioed in to ask if anyone else saw the flying objects that day.
UFO/UAP task forces stay busy
In 2021, the Department of Defense launched a taskforce to identify and study an estimated 140 sky events. It was primarily focused on military sightings of UAPs and UFOs. Washington insiders were puzzled by the growing number of UFO sightings. And believe that they could be a threat to national security.
The initial UFO task force released a report to Congress. And announced the formation of The Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group.
The report confirmed that there had been several unexplained aerial phenomena sightings by the military. And some of the sky events were still unexplained.
NASA is now involved in studying the spike in the number of UFO sightings. And last week another team of space scientists began a study.
A group of children playing in Littleborough reckon they have had a close encounter with a UFO. So vivid was their experience at about 7pm on Thursday they have started to draw what they saw. They say the spacecraft hovered slowly just over the rooftops for several minutes and then shot off at hyper speed. Lindsey Stansfield, of Timbercliffe, Summit, said her sons, Louis, aged eight, and Cameron, aged five, were playing with friends on a trampoline outside their home when they spotted the ‘extra terrestrial’. She said: “The children saw the object flying slowly above the houses. Some of the children thought it was triangular in shape and others square, but it could have been to do with what angle they saw it.” “It had red lights around the edge and yellow lights in the middle. They rushed in to tell us about it, but the time we got out it had gone. The children say the object had stopped above the house behind us and then shot off in hyper drive.
Later that evening they started drawing pictures of what they had seen.” “I would like to know if anyone else in Littleborough saw the object.” Louis said: “I looked up and saw some lights flashing in the sky. I went in the house to get my mother, but when we went out it had gone.” A spokesman for the National Air Traffic service said: “There was no reported alien activity in controlled airspace that we are aware of.” A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Defense said: “I am not aware of any other reported sightings. We do have a UFO report line telephone number so that people can report things which they cannot explain.” She said sightings were checked to see if they had any defense significance, whether the UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile air activity. But this had not been found to be the case. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
While driving up RT 8, as I entered Naugatuck something caught my attention. It at first appeared like two elongated diamond shaped objects that were slightly offset from one another. I can’t be sure why as I went further down the highway it appeared different, whether it moved or rotated or if perhaps it just appeared different from the sunlight but to me it then looked more like an elongated cube shape. It moved very slowly across the highway and I’m not great at judging degrees or size etc for full disclosure, but it was moving approximately to the northeast. My exit on RT 8 is 25, so as you approach that exit, the tree line gets much closer to the road, so I lost sight of it. I thought I would be able to track it again at the stop light on the exit ramp, but I was surprised to find I couldn’t see it anymore.
That is what really bothered me. If I saw it just disappear, or shoot off, I could wrap my head around it. So, to just lose track of something so large and slow moving was frustrating. I called the police dept dispatch and asked them if anyone had reported seeing anything and they said they hadn’t gotten any calls. So, I was wondering if maybe anyone else contacted your organization? I didn’t have the presence of mind to grab my phone and I had a hard time sketching out what I saw. So, I looked on the internet for photos of anything that would give me a visual representation of size, distance, altitude and shapes. I apologize for uploading stuff from the internet. I just had a hard time understanding what I saw and needed to be able to make sense of it. Photo 1 is just for distance, size perspective. Photo 2 is how it initially appeared in shape ( but again it looked as if there were two stacked up but offset from each other slightly ) Photo 3 is closer to how it looked before I lost sight of it. I hope someone else saw it too. It was very large and someone else had to have seen it. NOTE: The above photo is from the witness, and he got it off of the internet. I feel he was using it as a recreation of what he saw.
Was driving home from work one Friday night about 11pm. Sydney to Wollongong. Clear night with a near full moon. Great for stargazing while driving. As I was driving just south of Helensburgh I looked up in the sky to my right and noticed the silhouette of an object flying quite low (no higher than 200m), but at roughly the same speed as I. For size reference, it was about as long as the large firefighting helicopters. I returned my eyes to the road and 5 seconds later looked back up and it was still there. It was like a rounded triangle shape (like a guitar pick but not quite so elongated). I initially thought it might have been a helicopter or army plane because as a crow flies, we weren’t far from the Holzworth army range, plus it’s not uncommon to see military aircraft flying between Sydney and Nowra bases.
This definitely wasn’t a helicopter, and didn’t look like any aircraft I knew of. There wasn’t any separate segments (wings, fuselage, tail etc). It was one solid piece of machine. I put down my window to get a clear view without any dashboard reflection, but the thing that really stood out to me as odd was that there was no noise. And I don’t just mean from the aircraft. I was travelling at 100km/h and there was no rush of air passing my window and my ears. I could hear the tyres humming on the road but no engine, no wind and no noise from the aircraft. It continued to sit above me to my right for about 2 minutes. No lights coming from it, pacing my car as I drove the straight stretch of road.
As I was approaching a bend in the road near Darke’s Forest, I suddenly heard a loud whirring sound, a single light started glowing and turning in its centre and it took off at a sensational speed in a northwest direction (we’d been heading South). No braking or banking to turn. It changed direction in an instant. Best visual comparison I can make is stretching an elastic band (as it paces me) them letting go of the elastic band (it takes off in the other direction). And as it left me, all the wind noise of driving along a highway at 100km/h returned. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
