Excited by the mystery of a famous video
captured in Turkey over a decade ago, some citizens over the internet processed
it through a stabilization tool, revealing strange images that could bewilder
even seasoned ufologists.
The enigma started back when a Turkish night
guard Yalcin Yalman began recording a video of bright, crescent-shaped objects that
appeared and regularly hovered over the Marmara Sea close to the resort village
of Kumburgaz in 2008.
His pastime made him famous as a UFO
spotter, and his videos immediately went viral because of their authenticity
confirmed by several experts and witnesses who saw similar objects at the time
The device Yalman used was not impressive
at all because the original videos were very shaky. When zoomed in or out, the
quality and definition of the unstabilized recording dropped significantly. It
led some skeptics to suggest the UFO was an American stealth drone or other
The Kumburgaz videos were stabilized many times, including the last one surfacing online just this week. YouTube channel Unidentified Aerial Phenomena made it available on the video-sharing site. Adobe Premiere video editing tool was used for video stabilization to try solving the mystery of the greenish dots in the center of the lit-up crescent.
Stinson Lake, proximate to a U.S. army training area, may be an alien or government UFO base, or a focus of investigation or travel by aliens, one reason being possible mining as the area is rich in precious minerals. A mirror ship was photographed directing a beam of light at the hillside. Two questions that come to mind are: What was it? And why was it at an army operations area?
I was given a photograph last night of an object above the snow covered evergreens in the soupy late afternoon February sky of 2000 at Stinson Lake. It is not a painted object such as blue underneath and white on top, or black, or part metal and paint…
It is like a mirror reflecting the milky white sky above and the forest below color for color, tone for tone, hue for hue with intensity above surrounding fields at nearest equator and diminishing below surrounding fields (slightly faded at outer or left and right edges) undeniably displaying a round or roundish shape.
There are no wings and no engines noise according to the photographer. There is a shadow outlining its shape in a clearing below it and the same shadow is on the underside reflection. There’s more.
After closely examining the object utilizing digital enhancement techniques, globes are seen underneath with hints of green and white lights, a possible dome on top which almost completely blends in with the sky and globular energy field where there are color shifts in the pixel spectrum where there are no added colors but a reorganization of existing colors suggesting a mirage effect also seen with the Mexico videos. The shifted field forms a perfect globe around the object exactly touching is outer edge no matter the attitude of the craft.
Sitting back a little from a 600% enlargement on the monitor screen, a field ‘net’ effect is obvious. The field appears webbed like a fish net formed into a globe and transparent white. Further, there is evidence of a beam of light pointing at a dark round spot also in a clearing on a nearby hill.
Above the object is a mushroom-shape distortion similar to the globular energy field but larger, which raises the question of the portal of origin or a second ship. It was so sudden, the photographer never had any indication of what was about to transpire as he shot landscape photographs in the otherwise peaceful environs around him.
The photographer happened to be at the site near where the U.S. Army has historically conducted paratrooper and other training. The Army’s conventional presence may well have been replaced by something extremely advanced. But the sightings have not diminished in that remote and tranquil location unlikely to be stumbled upon by any tourist.
David Eckhart’s home in a rural, picturesque area of Pensacola, Florida was by his own admission his “dream home”. However, in 2008 when he made contact with the previously mentioned Lon Strickler. What he would tell him would spark an investigation of over a decade which continues today.
According to Eckhart, he and his family were increasingly noticing strange activity around their home. This quickly turned into witnessing strange creatures – “small people with huge black eyes” – and even alien abductions. What’s more, Eckhart believes these interactions were taking place long before they moved to the quiet, urban house in Milton. He would even claim to have vague memories of what he thought were “strange muppets” sleeping on his bunk bed when he was a young child.
For example, upon first moving to the Florida region while on a camping trip with friends, Eckhart witnessed a strange light traveling at great speed over the trees where they were looking to set up camp. He would claim to Strickler in a recent radio interview that, although he was joking and jovial at the time, he stated bluntly to his friends:
Hey guys, there’s a UFO!
The group would laugh off the sighting and begin setting up camp as planned. However, as they were looking for firewood, Eckhart noticed the strange light once again. It appeared to be coming from inside the woods. One of the group was more experienced in this rural setting and would dismiss the sighting.
However, the strange light “in a flash” was right over the top of Eckhart and his friend before it disappeared once more just as quickly. Eckhart would later state that the object was so close to them that he could hear the “whoosh” moving through the air.
The pair would continue rounding up wood for the fire. However, when the light returned, Eckhart would give chase to the strange craft.
He would continue in pursuit of the mysterious object but would ultimately lose it. That was until an incredibly bright flash briefly lit up the area. As it did the object was visible for a millisecond hovering in between the trees. Following this flash, however, Eckhart would find himself temporarily blind as his eyes adjusted themselves.
While Eckhart would continue his pursuit for almost half an hour, he would ultimately lose the strange, glowing object when it entered the water near their campsite.
Following the bizarre incident, the group decided against their decision to camp there for the evening. They quickly rounded up their possessions and made their way back to the vehicle. Eckhart would begin to describe to the others just what he had seen.
As he did so, however, he would suddenly notice “a man, or guy or whatever it was” watching him approximately 30 feet behind them. He would state in a 2019 interview:
As soon as it saw me and I saw him and we made eye contact we just stopped! And then you get all of these things running through your head. Because you have just seen something that does, not, fit, in!
The possibilities of what this strange entity might be tumbled over each other in Eckhart’s mind. Was it an owl or deer, or even somebody wearing a mask? When he called out to the strange creature “it took off running”. This prompted Eckhart to give chase once again. Only this time, he would catch up to the creature with relative ease.
A Bizarre “Pixelated” Entity
He would recall how the creature had a very distinct aroma that he could detect from several feet away. Furthermore, upon closer inspection, he would claim that the figure appeared like a child who has aged like an elderly person.
Eckhart was well placed and within range to take the creature down and secure it. However, he would claim he “couldn’t bring himself to tackle it” as he simply “didn’t know what the heck it was”.
This is potentially a remarkable detail, trivial as it might be, as it perhaps shows a mindset that would strike us all. Would most of us really wish to come into such close contact with something that is (literally) alien to us?
Whether through squeamishness or well-placed apprehensions of possible poisonous or aggressive reaction from the strange creature, it is likely a safe bet that most would think in exactly the same way as Eckhart upon catching up and essentially cornering such a bizarre creature. Especially when he could sense he was scaring it, something which itself might force it to act defensively.
As he began to slow down and back away, essentially giving up his chase, the creature continued to run. It would eventually reach an area of bushes and overgrowth. He would further describe the entity as “pixelated”.
For several weeks after, Eckhart would suffer intense dreams regarding the bizarre encounter.
A “Dream-Home” Awash In Extraterrestrial Paranormal Activity
Several years later towards the end of the 2000s, Eckhart and his family had settled into their new home in the Pensacola area. What is perhaps interesting is that many of the initial signs that something strange was truly taking place were very similar to paranormal activity. Strange noises and mysterious footsteps, for example. We have examined this before and it begs the question once more, just how blurred might the line between alien encounters and ghostly apparitions actually be?
Indeed, to begin with, as the move was still being finalized and loose ends in Ohio being tied up by David, he himself was dismissive of his wife’s claims of strange noises. He would put it down to settling water pipes and general creaks that any typical building has.
However, one evening after returning home from work he would find his wife almost cowering in fear and “as white as a ghost”. He would ask her what was wrong to which she replied:
David, I am seeing people walking through the house!
Although still very much believing the activity was, in fact, the product of his wife’s imagination, he nevertheless began to research paranormal activity in an effort to understand, and ultimately eliminate such notions so as to settle his wife’s increasing distraught state of mind.
However, the more he read on the subject, despite his (then) skepticism to such seemingly outlandish goings-on, the events described by his wife began to sound increasingly like poltergeist activity.
More Evidence Of A Blurring Of Different Fields Of Interest
Once more this is an interesting development to dwell on for a moment. Might most poltergeist activity have more of a connection to extraterrestrial encounters than we might suspect? One thing that is interesting with such encounters is the idea that these strange and mysterious entities come from “other realms” or “dimensions”. Indeed, poltergeists and extraterrestrials may prove to be one and the same thing.
By this stage, the Eckhart’s pet cat was also reacting to a seemingly invisible presence. Eckhart’s wife would often spend great portions of her day with a polaroid camera in her hand. Every now and then she would press down on the shutter in an attempt to capture one of these strange entities on film. She would often capture strange orbs on the instant photographs, yet another phenomenon that bleeds heavily into both the paranormal and the UFO fields of interest.
In fact, it was as a result of some of these mysterious and, at times, disturbing polaroid photographs that David Eckhart began to take the sightings much more seriously. One particular photograph that appeared to show people from the 1930s is perhaps interesting to note. We might remind ourselves of some of the truly bizarre images captured by Stella Lansing in the late 1960s in the upper northeast area of the United States.
Many of Lansing’s images appeared to be of strange figures, possibly from different eras in time. Furthermore, she managed to capture them while attempting to film strange and persistent UFO encounters. The images and the encounters of Lansing would even result in ominous Men In Black activity. Whatever the connection might be to the strange images she captured and the UFO sightings she witnessed, it would appear a similar back-thread permeates the Eckhart encounters.

On a hot summer night about 2-3 am in Vietnam I think it was Quon Loî . I was atop a bunker on guard duty. When an object at star distance caught my eye because of its rapid movements. Not wanting to lose sight I grabbed my Starlight scope and observed this object seen to withdrawal into space then forward. Would shoot across in a horizontal manner and appeared to do it at an incredible speed. Still through the starlight scope could not even begin to estimate its size ? Except star size. Never called it in as I was in awe. Until a few years later and the Movie Close Encounters of The Third Kind came out. Freaked me out soo much. Never told this story to the public. But it’s a true story. NOTE: The above image is real but from another similar investigation.
NOTE: This case is under investigation by CAG International investigator Ken Pfeifer
When housewife Sharon Rowlands filmed what appeared to be a UFO flying over her tiny Derbyshire village, little did she realise what rewards the footage would bring her.
The 6-and-a-half-minute tape has been snapped up by an American TV company for more than £20,000.
Mrs Rowlands can also be proud of the knowledge her film is being ranked as one of the best pieces of UFO video footage ever shot.
California-based Kiviat Productions, which snapped up the film, is currently negotiating with TV networks across the world to show the tape as part of its ‘Could It Be True?’ Series – but not before officials from NASA are given a preview.
Mrs Rowlands (44), who lives with husband Hayden (45), said: “I’ve watched UFO programmes and if there is such a thing, this is as good a photograpgh as you’re going to get.
“I was a complete and utter disbeliever but seeing this has made me think twice. It was huge and through the lens it looked like it was going to hit me. I couldn’t believe it – it’s like nothing else I’ve ever seen.”
The tape has been locked in a bank vault since her chance filming on October 5, 2000, with a camcorder which she had received only days earlier as a gift.
Kiviat executive producer Robert Kiviat found Mrs Rowlands’ film while scouring the internet.
He said: “This is one of the top five pieces of video footage of UFOs ever taken.”
The Rowlands are just a couple living in a remote area with no agenda and no previous experience in UFO videos – they just appear to have had their camcorder out at the right time.”
A Meteorological Officer spokesman said there were no freak weather conditions on October 5 which could have caused the circular shape in the sky.
The American space agency NASA is believed to be interested in the Rowland’s photograph because of its marked resemblance to a photograph taken during the 1996, STS-75 mission. The photograph was taken by Astronaut Claude Nicoltier.
From 1970 to 1973, Claude Nicoltier worked as a graduate scientist with the Institute of Astronomy at Lausanne University and at the Geneva Observatory.
He then joined the Swiss Air Transport School in Zurich and was assigned as a DC-9 pilot for Swissair, concurrently participating part-time in research activities of the Geneva Observatory.
At the end of 1976 he accepted a Fellowship at the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Space Science Department at Noordwijk, Netherlands, where he worked as a research scientist in various airborne infrared astronomy programs.
In July 1978 he was selected by ESA as a member of the first group of European astronauts.
Under agreement between ESA and NASA he joined the NASA astronaut candidates selected in May 1980 for astronaut training as a mission specialist.
Mrs Rowlands’ footage capped a hive of activity in Bonsall which has seen villagers reporting 19 UFO sightings in just four months leading up to last October.
UFO enthusiast Omar Fowler founded the Derby-based Phenomenon Research Association 10 years ago and has been tracking UFOs since the 1970s.
He believes Bonsall is right up there with the foremost UFO hotbeds – including Mexico city, the USA, and Fleetwood in Lancashire.
Mr Fowler said: “I viewed Mrs Rowlands’ tape and I was amazed at what I saw. I consider it to be one of the most important sightings of recent years – comparing very well with a recent clip from Mexico – and it typifies activity in Bonsall.”
Mr Kiviat said he will show the tape to NASA optical physicist Dr. Bruce Macabbee.
“The Rowlands’ tape will shock a lot of people because the image shown is the same as one taken by NASA’s own cameras showing what appears to be a UFO hovering in space, maybe three miles wide,” Mr Kiviat said. ”
The UFO near the International Space Station has compelled many to believe that Donald Trump’s space force is active in space.
It was around a year back that the United States President Donald Trump talked about the vitality of launching a space force. After the milestone announcement, conspiracy theorists outlandishly started arguing that the president had ordered the Air Force to launch this new military wing to combat a future alien invasion.
These alien mongers are up in arms again after they spotted a seemingly triangular object near the International Space Station.
Video of this mysterious event, which was actually spotted by a man named Scott M, was uploaded to YouTube by conspiracy theory channel MrMBB333. The newly emerged clip shows a UFO hovering very near the ISS cameras.
“This is not a reflection, in fact, this object over here as you’ll see reflects light itself. It seems to be some sort of large craft. You’ll see when I zoom in and put it in slow motion, you’re going to see light reflecting off it and it glistens. It’s teetering back and forth from left to right,” Daily Star quoted the conspiracy theorist as saying.
The video uploaded by MrMBB333 has already gone viral on online spaces and conspiracy theorists have started arguing that Donald Trump’s space force is operational in the space. As per these conspiracy theorists, Donald Trump’s space force was launched without the knowledge of other world powers like China, Russia and India.
In the meantime, a section of alien enthusiasts has started claiming that the UFO could be actually an alien mothership that has reached the solar system from outer space. As per these alien believers, these advanced extraterrestrials are maintaining regular contact with astronauts aboard the ISS and space agencies like NASA are aware of their existence.
Hi Ken: I was in the back garden sky watching when I spotted a fast moving object that seemed very erratic. The object shimmered as it flew through the sky making sharp twists and turns flying in and out of the clouds. The object looked dart like and it’s surface was white and seemed to be very reflective. It was moving extremely fast and I was having real trouble moving the camera to follow it across the sky, but luckily I was able to keep up with the object and focus the camera just in time allowing me to take a photograph just before I lost sight of it. What could this mysterious unidentified object be? The G forces must of been immense inside this object with all those sharp twists and turns and I really doubt that there were any organic pilots inside. I reckon that it was probably some type of remote controlled alien drone that was surveilling the area for some unknown purpose. Whatever the object was it was very strange and it’s erratic movements were quite Puzzling. The photograph was taken at 12:01 PM on the 1st of November 2019 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

The report included here was originally posted on the Coast to Coast AM web site with photographs.
On 03-01-01, A Salt Lake City truck driver was making a delivery in downtown Salt Lake City, when he became aware of a bright flash. As the driver looked for the source of this flash, he saw a ring-shaped object in the sky. Fortunately, he had a digital camera in his truck. He took several photos of the object, one immediately after the other.
The photographs (seen below) clearly show the object as a dark, ring-shaped object. Ultimately, the ring would disappear into the cloud cover. The truck driver was interviewed by Art Bell about his sighting and photographs. There were two additional witnesses to the events, one a truck driver who was driving behind the first truck. He did not wish to be interviewed, and subsequently what he saw exactly is not known.
The third witness was working on Beck St, and saw the ring-shaped object. He was later contacted, but never responded.
More information: The primary witness and photographer of the object also related to an investigator that he took the photographs with an Aiptek pen camera. He stated that the ring did NOT appear to be smoke, and was clearly seen. This is evident from the photographs.
When looking at the photographs in sequence, the object seems to move from left to right. With the truck moving from right to left looking at the object, at least part of the object’s movement could be attributed to the movement of the truck, as the driver took the photographs.
Another interesting aspect of the photographs is seen in photos 6 and 7. There is a type of hook seen only in these two picture. What this is, is anyone’s guess. The ring-shaped object is also strange in that it appears to change shape slightly from photo to photo.
Whether or not there is a connection, a very similar incident would unfold just over 24 hours earlier on the evening of 12th May in Tewksbury, New Jersey.
That evening, at around 9:30 pm, Earl and Pat Richards, along with their two adult sons, Earl Jr. and Wayne, were watching television when the set suddenly switched off and the lights of the house dimmed.
When the two sons ran to the window, each could see “dozens of green, blue, and red lights” overhead. What’s more, they were seemingly “hovering around a huge airborne vehicle”. This huge mothership-type craft also glowed with dozens of lights. By this time, the older Richards had also ventured to the window to see what the fuss was.
The witnesses would state the object was around the size of “four or five Boeing 747 planes”. And was a definite elongated, or cigar, shape with no sign of any wings. Perhaps of even more interest was how slowly the object moved, especially for its size.
The object made its way over the neighborhood and then out into the city after that. As it did, lights in houses and buildings underneath would flicker, and even turn off. While most properties would have their power back to normal within minutes, others were in darkness for almost two hours. Perhaps of interest are the comments of the Jersey Central Power and Light Company. They would claim that a “transformer had burnt out” but declined to give a reason for it.
For the Richards family, and anyone else who witnessed the aerial anomaly, the reason for the transformer burning out was perfectly obvious. And, in terms of the Texoma incident, it is certainly not that much of a stretch of the imagination that the sightings are of the same craft. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
“IT was a clear, dry night. It was really crisp and frosty — just beautiful. You could have read a book with the light off the night sky, but I wasn’t drawn by the light of the stars or the moon but by a bright, surgical, white light coming from the other end of the boreen.”
These are the words of County Limerick man Gerry Battles in the final moments leading up to what he is convinced was an alien abduction near his family home in Pallaskenry on December 26, 2001.
The 61-year-old retired carpenter told the Limerick Post this week that he had been returning home from The Seven Sisters Pubs in Kildimo around 8pm, after having two Christmas drinks with a friend.
“I was only minutes away from my house but it was such a clear and beautiful night that I stopped to gaze at the stars,” he explains.
After being drawn by a bright, otherworldly, white light at the end of the laneway, the next thing he remembers is finding himself aboard a spacecraft with about 40 others — all in a subdued state, standing motionless like statues.
“They were all male, of different age groups, all standing shoulder to shoulder like mannequins. I remember one man next to me wearing a Columbo-style coat and hat. We were all in a state of paralysis, I could only move my eyes, so I couldn’t see much,” Gerry tells me.
“The next thing I remember floating into another bigger chamber with a 360 degree viewing deck. It was then I saw the extraterrestrial. I couldn’t tell how big he was or even if he had arms or legs, all I remember is his big cone head and his beautiful, ginormous eyes. They were jet black, almost like mirrors.
“He spoke to me through telepathy and said: “you are not terrified like the others”.
“No, I am not. Should I be?” Gerry asked.
The alien then quizzed the Limerick grandfather about what he would like to see.
“The North Pole”, came his instant reply.
“The next thing the extraterrestrial gave a command, and in an instant we were at the North Pole. I was in awe. I remember thinking of that line from ‘Star Trek’: “warp speed Mr Sulu”. It was like driving through a snowstorm at 500 miles an hour.”
Gerry admits that anyone he has revealed this fantastical story to thinks he is mad. He laughs when I ask if he has any history of mental illness.
“No, not at all,” he assures me.
This quiet-natured gentleman is adamant that the message relayed to him by the creature he encountered is an important one for all mankind to hear. He feels those who laugh at his tale of alien abduction are “naïve and have small imaginations”, and urges them to open their minds.
The message relayed to Mr Battles on Stephen’s Night 2001 by his alien abductor warned of Planet Earth’s pending doom and predicted that mankind could go the same way as the dinosaurs.
“You have come a long way in such a short space of time but your time is running out,” Gerry was told.
“In 850 years from now, a giant asteroid the size of Munster is going to obliterate your planet. The asteroid will approach your planet from the 35th Quadrant.
We are four million light years more advanced than you are. We have been observing you for Millennia. In all that time you have only excelled at two things — global warfare and lying to your own species.
“You must use the force. Be one with the force. Harness the force,” the alien advised.
Surprisingly, the following part of the intergalactic message sounds more likely to have been relayed by anti-austerity campaigners than Jedi-powered Martians.
“He told me that every one of our governments have been lying to us from day one and not to trust them. He also warned not to trust the banks as they have been lying as well and have a hidden agenda.
“He also forewarned the impending global financial crisis and told me that if we do not change our ways we are going to end up like the dinosaurs.”
Mr Battles has no recollection of how long the abduction lasted and had no memory of it afterwards until the coat he was wearing that night turned up in a most unlikely location.
“A contractor working at the Regional Hospital found the coat up on the hospital roof a few weeks later. I have no idea how it got there. It was only after having the coat returned to me that the events of December 26, 2001, started to come back to me.”
He believes aliens use ‘dark matter’ or ‘dark energy’, an invisible cloaking device, to keep their universe hidden from our own. He is hopeful his story will reach the world’s scientific community and prove useful in helping to finally uncover these distant galaxies.
“The truth is definitely out there,” he insists. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At shortly after midnight on the 13th May 1981 when local mechanic, Jim Shelton finished watching television on Channel 13 and was preparing to take himself to bed for the night. His wife had fallen asleep on the sofa next to him. He was just about to wake her so they could make their way to the bedroom when a sudden bright light was visible through the window.
Shelton would recall how “the whole pasture lit up” causing him to jump up completely from the couch and make his way to the window. When he peered out, he was amazed to see a cigar-shaped object moving across the field outside.
At first, Shelton thought a plane or helicopter was about to crash right outside his home such was the low altitude. However, by the time he had stood on the sofa and pushed the window open a little in order to get a better look, he realized what he was watching was nothing like a conventional aircraft.
Shelton would further describe the object as having “several lit portholes” as well as “green and yellow pulsating lights” announcing themselves from its exterior. Furthermore, there appeared to be “fire streaming in sparks from the rear” of the object as it moved along. Perhaps amazingly, however, there appeared to be no sound whatsoever coming from the craft.
He would estimate the object to be around 20 feet in length and moving at a pace of around 30 or 40 miles per hour. Furthermore, it appeared to Shelton that the object had a purposeful course in mind and was not making an attempt to land. Nor was it hovering. As the huge object passed, the lights made the night appear “bright as day”.
It Was Real And I Saw It!
He would continue to stare at the bizarre sight for several seconds before turning away from the window to call his wife. When he turned back around, though, the craft was no longer in sight. Although his wife didn’t see the object herself, she did recall waking up following her husband’s excited cries and of seeing an intense glow from outside.
He would later state to the Denison Herald:
It was real. I saw it, and if they lock me up, I still saw it. It was long. A cigar-shape!
He would remain at the window hoping to see it reemerge. However, when it didn’t, thinking it might have crashed, Shelton would contact the Denison Police Department. Although they would notify the Sheriff’s Office of the incident, Shelton had the impression that they didn’t take his report very seriously. One thing he was certain of, however, was that the craft was most certainly not anything conventional. Nor was it likely terrestrial.
In fact, so out of this world was the sight that met the technician, he was extremely unnerved by just the presence of it. As would come to light very shortly, Shelton was far from the only witness to these strange events that evening.
At the same time as Jim Shelton was staring out of his living room window at the strange object, another local resident, Karen Robinson, was making her way home from her shift at Texas Instruments, her place of employment.
As she made her way along the quiet highway, she witnessed a strange, long object traveling in a perfectly straight-line overhead. She would describe it as looking “like fireworks trailing behind a falling star”.
The Whole Sky “Seemed To Glow!”
A friend and work colleague of Karen’s, Linda Tingle was also traveling home from work at Texas Instruments at around the same time that evening. She would also witness the strange object while driving home with her husband, Mike along Loy Lake Road.
She would claim that she “thought it was the Moon” initially, but when she saw that it was descending “like it was falling” she realized it was something a little different. Still contemplating more reasonable explanations such as a falling star, she continued to watch the strange objects decent.
She could see that the color of the object was changing from green to yellow. It was then she called out to Mike to look upward also. Although he didn’t see the object itself, he did recall that the night sky “lit up” significantly. Certainly, enough for him to notice while not taking his eyes from the road. He would later claim the whole sky “seemed to glow”.
Strangely, and perhaps because of her focus on the object itself, Linda didn’t recall the sky glowing. But she did recall the object as being like a “ball glowing and flashing as it streaked downward”.
Interestingly, one of the other witnesses to the incident was a neighbor of Jim Shelton, the main witness. They were happy to speak with investigators, but didn’t, however, wish to give their name.
They claimed they had gone to bed that evening sometime around 10:30 pm. However, at some point in the next few hours – they admittedly had not looked at a clock – their bedroom suddenly “lit up” waking them. Their first thought was that a car had pulled into his driveway outside his house. When no knocking came at his door, he simply “pulled up the covers… and went back to sleep”.
There Is “No Way” The Silver, Metallic Object Was A Weather Balloon
Back at the Shelton house, however, after waiting for daylight to arrive the next morning, Jim Shelton would finally give in to his curiosity and venture out into the fields outside his home.
He would walk around “every inch” of the 15 acres of his land. However, he would discover nothing untoward that would suggest anything out of the ordinary had taken place only hours before.
Following his extensive but fruitless search of his land, Shelton decided to use his Air Force “contacts” by informing his father – a retired United States Air Force veteran – of the incident in the hope that he might be able to use his contacts to find out any further information about the incident. Shelton, however, would not hear anything from his father or the Air Force concerning the matter.
Perhaps as a final testament to the dismissive attitude of the Denison police was the decision of the switchboard dispatcher to not record Shelton’s phone call to police on the night in question. Furthermore, according to the police dispatcher, Alton Taylor, the police “get a lot of those calls”. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
July 9, 2019 – Portland, Indiana, USA. “My best-friend is a mural artist and does most of her work outdoors. On July 9th of this year (2019) she was painting a mural on a building in Portland, Indiana and was able to capture pics of a UFO with her phone’s camera. It shot away like a flash. In 1981 I had a UFO parked 20 ft above my roof and front yard. I got to see the underbelly and then ran out the back patio door to see it better and it was still there. It appeared to have a magnetic field surrounding it. I could see what looked like the wavy pulsing lines in a mirage on hot pavement. It had turned from a gun metal surface to an opalescent glowing appearance. I watched it slowly move southeast away from me and was somewhat wobbly. After moving away farther and farther I watched it suddenly turn up and shot away so quickly up into the sky then disappear. The disc I saw was more shallow than the one my friend took pics of. Also the saucer she saw had a short vapor line behind it but the one I encountered did not have a vapor line.” R NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At around 8:20 pm on the evening of 2nd October 1966, Mrs. Everett was speaking on the telephone in her home in Cincinnati, Ohio. Suddenly, a strange aroma hit her nostrils as well as a very distinct feeling of being watched. She quickly brought her conversation to an end and made her way to her bedroom.
From there, she would peer out of the window. Outside was a huge “oval-shaped object with red, green, and white lights revolving around it”. She would also notice several portholes along the side of the strange craft.
Her husband was sleeping on the bed but the strange sight prompted her to wake him. He immediately went to the window and saw the strange craft also. After hovering for several moments, the object began to move away from their property. Then, however, it zipped back toward them at speed, stopping dead right in front of their window once more.
The couple would estimate it was hovering at an altitude of approximately 300 meters. It remained there for around ten minutes. During this time, Mrs. Steward would call her adult, married daughter, Janet, who lived nearby. As she told her of the bizarre craft outside their window, the pungent odor began to make her feel physically nauseous. It appeared to be getting stronger, causing her to dizzy.
An Encounter Very Much Out Of The Ordinary
Meanwhile, a short distance away, Janet would pick up her phone and listened while her mother informed her of the strange sight she and her father were observing. Janet would awaken her husband, Ken. From their first-floor window, they could also see the hovering craft. And what’s more, the object was now only 200 meters from their property.
As well as the brilliant lights along the edge of the saucer-shaped craft, Janet and Ken would describe the craft as of a metallic exterior. While they continued to watch the bizarre aerial anomaly, Ken would quickly dress and venture next door to alert their neighbor and research US Navy officer, David. He would follow Ken to his house, bringing with him his military-grade binoculars.
Through these high-tech binoculars, David was able to determine that the windows were square. Furthermore, they would “emit a yellow gleam”.
It was also around this time that the trio noticed that “all the dogs in the neighborhood were barking”. Whatever, the object was, all were perfectly aware that the strange vehicle was very much “out of the ordinary”.
They continued to watch the strange object as it began again to move through the air. Sensing that it was going to vacate the area, the two men made the decision to get into Ken’s car and follow it. They did so and began in the direction of Mount Airy keeping the strange object in their sights as they did so. However, the otherworldly vehicle would ultimately prove too fast for them, and they would lose sight of it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: I was looking out the back door watching the heavy downpour of rain that we were having in the area when all of a sudden I saw a flash of light. Naturally I thought it was just a flash of lighting but there was no sound of thunder which I thought was strange. As I looked around and looked up into the sky I was shocked by what I saw. There was a cigar type craft that was just hanging there stationary in the sky. The cigar type craft had a large dome attach to the top of it and I could clearly see that the craft was definitely a mechanical nuts and bolt machine which someone somewhere had engineered. I was so excited by what I was seeing and I just had to take some photographs of this alien craft so I could show other people what I witnessed hanging above the housing estate. I immediately ran into the front room to get my Nikon P900 camera and once I had retrieved it I ran straight back into the kitchen and looked out though the back door to see if the craft was still there in the sky and to my surprise it was. I leaned against the door frame to steady myself before I took a photograph of the strange alien craft. I then watched it for a while before there was another flash of light, which I could now see that it had originated from the domed area of the craft which was all ready illuminated by a yellow light that seemed to be inside. It was incredible that there was no sound coming from the craft as it hung there in the sky. All I could hear was the heavy rain hitting the ground. I then noticed a ball of light off to the right of the craft so I raised up my camera to take some more photographs, when all of a sudden there was a really intense bright white light which only seemed to surround me and it caused my legs to give way. I fell backwards towards the kitchen floor and narrowly avoided smashing my camera as I hit the floor. My legs were like jelly and by the time I had regained enough strength in my legs to get up off the floor the alien craft was gone. I couldn’t believe it… all I wanted was another shot. The photograph was taken at 3:49 PM on the 27th of October 2019, at Newton Abbot Devon England. Have a great week my friend all the best John.
Hi Ken: I was on the beach at Teignmouth and I was taking photographs of a passing passenger plane that was very high up in the sky, when all of a sudden a white cylindrical object flew into frame. I managed to capture the object in one of the photographs. The cylindrical object was moving very fast and it flew right passed the passenger plane before it made a quick turn and headed out to sea where I lost sight of it. The pilots must of seen this object as it had passed right in front of the cockpit window. If only there was a way to track down and talk to these pilots…
Many pilots in and around the United Kingdom have spotted unidentified objects flying in the sky around them but they rarely come forward to report there observations due to ridicule and worst of all the threat of losing their job. I only wish that this would change and that these pilots had a voice and were able to freely report what they had witnessed in the skies above us.
The Photograph was taken 6:55 PM on the 17th of September 2019 at Teignmouth Devon England. All the best John.

While flying executive employees from Sweden to Humberside in the United Kingdom on the 28th February 1999, the pilots of a private plane witnessed a “long, cylindrical object” over the North Sea just off the coast of Denmark.
They would go on to further describe the object as having a distinct red glow to it. As well as being “as big as a battleship”. The incident occurred at an altitude of approximately 28,000 feet. The object was beneath their plane and soaking their underside in an “incandescent light”. What’s more, the strange, glowing object would “come to a sudden halt”. It would then take off again at breakneck speed and vanish into the distance.
The pilots would have to make a report, as per standard procedure, to the Civil Aviation Authority. However, because there was “no danger to the aircraft or passengers” there was no subsequent investigation.
In the aftermath of the sighting, the pilot in question, whether coincidentally or not, was on leave from the company. Consequently, they wouldn’t speak to the media. Incidentally, requests for more information were beginning to stack up with the company, Debonair.
Incidentally, a representative of Humberside Airport, Tracey Law, claimed there was “no mention made whatsoever of UFOs in the initial report”. She would even go as far as to say that part was “since embellished” by the media. As was the use of the description that the craft was “as big as a battleship”. Of course, whether this was an exercise in damage control or not, is perhaps open to debate. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of the incident, it remains without explanation.

Sixteen minutes after taking off from Philadelphia International Airport, at just after 5 pm on the 9th August 1997, Captain Phil Bobet and the crew of the Swiss Airlines flight witnessed a strange craft zipping by their plane as they made their way over Kennedy Airport in New York.
The evening was perfectly clear, and visibility was extremely good. So good, in fact, that downtown New York City was clearly visible from their position. Bobet was making a routine announcement to the passengers on the radio system. However, as he did so, he would see the bizarre craft zoom past their plane. One of the First Officers also saw the object. Purely because he was looking out of the left side of the plane by chance at the correct time.
Bobet would quickly wrap up his announcement before radioing in to the control tower. He would advise them of the object they had just witnessed. He would state that he wasn’t sure “if it was a rocket”. But that it was “too fast to be an airplane”. The Boston control tower would note the incident. No further information or explanation would surface, and the incident remains a mystery. However, the detail matches with what we know of other sightings of a similar nature.
