HI Ken: I heard a helicopter outside so I rushed over to the bedroom window to check it out. When I looked out of the window I could see that the helicopter was in fact the Devon air ambulance so I watched as it descended behind a house which then obscured my view. I went downstairs to get my Nikon p900 camera but none of the batteries that I tried were charged so I picked up my small Nikon coolpix L26 digital camera instead and went back upstairs to my bedroom where I stood patiently by the window waiting for the air ambulance helicopter to take off. After a while the air ambulance helicopter took off and ascended from behind the house giving me the perfect opportunity to take a photograph of it which I did. Then to my surprise I noticed a round object off to the left that was just hanging there in the sky so I immediately turned the camera in it’s direction to try and capture it in a photograph, but before I could the object flew off at incredible speed and unfortunately I lost sight of it.
I looked at the photograph that I had just taken and even though the quality of the photograph wasn’t that great I could still see that I had indeed managed to capture the object in the photograph along with the air ambulance helicopter. This camera normally takes perfectly clear photographs so why did this photograph turn out to be so dark and distorted. Could it be that this strange object had some type of affect on the camera causing the lack of quality in this photograph. I believe that it did. What was this object anyway and why was it observing the helicopter. I really cant understand why there are so many of these UFOs in this area? What on earth is going on? The photograph was taken at 3:58 PM on the 26th of March 2020, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
On the 15th of July in Charleston, South Carolina, yet another sighting of a triangular aircraft with glowing white lights at each corner would occur, although it would not come to light until three years later.
The witness was a passenger in a car that was returning her and a friend (who was driving) home from a nearby waffle house on the night in question. It was shortly after they turned on to a long stretch of road when the witness’s friend noticed and pointed out three white light in the shape of a triangle hovering or moving slowly above the treetops that accompanied the roadside.
The witness would recall that the lights were bright “but not glows” and appeared as though they were the end points of a solid triangular-shaped object. The witness would further describe the object as having the shape of a “nacho chip with a light at each of its points”. What’s more, and like many other witnesses to similar crafts, she found it bizarre that such a large object was seemingly moving so slowly. After they observed the strange object for several moments, they both realized that it was completely silent.
Most bizarre, though, was the beam-like searchlight that emanated from the middle underside of the object. It would move “quickly and erratically, but smoothly” over the woodland below as if searching for something among the trees.
They would watch the events unfold for several minutes. However, when they went to turn their vehicle around, the object had disappeared by the time they had done so. The witness would question whether it was a discreet “target-practice” for an experimental military craft as opposed to something extraterrestrial, although she didn’t dismiss the possibility. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
JULY 5, 2004…….PETERBOROUGH REGION OF ONTARIO CANADA
According to the report, the first sighting occurred around 4 am in the early hours of 5th July 2004 in the Peterborough region of Ontario. The witness, along with his cousin, observed a “fast-moving object” cutting through the skies and heading toward Little Lake. Both were even more amazed several moments later when a “triangle of three lights” went past in the same direction.
Neither of the witnesses could believe what they had seen, but both realized that something extraordinary had taken place. They would, though, keep the encounter to themselves. Two days later, however, in the early hours of the 7th of July, at around 3:30 am, the main witness would be present at another bizarre, but similar sighting.
He was watching the sky due to two strange glowing objects he had witnessed “streaking” across the sky earlier in the evening. Now, though, as he stood in his yard, he had a sudden compulsion to turn around and look toward the General Electric plant which was east of his location. As he did so, he realized that the streetlamps “seemed to be changing color”. When he looked up, however, he could see the cause of this color change.
Above but to the side of the electric plant, and moving at around 5 miles per hour, was a “massive” triangular-shaped object. Then, it would stop completely and restart again, only this time heading sideways toward the General Electric building. On the side that was visible was three “brownish orange lights” at each of the triangle’s endpoints which, bizarrely even to the witness, had an “evil” feel to them. He continued to watch these strange events unfold before him.
The witness would later describe the exterior of the triangular object as a dark blue or black color, with a matt finish as opposed to shiny. On the underside, in the middle of the object was a “circular dome” which was unlit. It is unclear if this circular dome contained occupants, or whether it was even built and designed for that purpose. He would also notice several “indentions” that he took to be either insignia, doors, or hatches. He would continue to follow the slow-moving craft for around three minutes. Then, without any warning whatsoever, the object: …moved so fast you couldn’t even tell the direction it went in!
Although he would see the object twice more during the next few moments, both were at a much higher altitude. Although he couldn’t explain why, he couldn’t escape the feeling that the occupants of the craft were not at all friendly. And furthermore, he also had the feeling that they, whoever they were, were aware that he was watching their low-altitude journey.
However, perhaps the most concerning detail was that upon returning inside he discovered the time to be a little after 5:15 am. This meant as opposed to the several minutes he believed he had been outside for, he had, in fact, been gone for more than an hour. Was this merely a sighting incident? Despite the miscalculation of time (which may have been exactly that as opposed to an episode of missing time), there appears to be no other sign of an abduction incident. However, it is something to keep in the back of our minds.
He would also pick up on some strange details over the next few days following the incident. The very next day, for instance, he would discover that his next-door neighbor had to replace the alternator and the battery on his otherwise very reliable Dodge. That might have been coincidental enough, but when he had to do the exact same thing with the second vehicle on his property, it appeared that something truly out of the ordinary had taken place overnight.
The witness would find the stereo in his own car “completely fried” upon inspection, and while the battery wasn’t completely dead, it was several hours later. There was also, according to the witness, a burnt aroma in the air for several days following the sighting.
He would further recall that on several occasions during the sighting he would feel “lost” or that he was confused at to what was happening or where he was. While this might have been a normal mental reaction to an extraordinary situation, given the missing time experienced by the witness, it is perhaps an important detail.
He would also note how he had some “weird dreams” in the days and weeks after the incident. As well as taking note of things he previously hadn’t. For example, he had a sudden appreciation for and understanding of architecture.
Perhaps most interesting, though, was the sudden discreet “psychic twinges” he would suddenly experience. He would know when the phone was about to ring or when someone was going to knock at the door right before it would happen, for example.
These details, both the new appreciation for things around you and a sudden, if discreet “psychic ability” is perhaps the most intriguing detail of the case. Not least, as it comes up often in close contact accounts. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On January 28, 1994, at the beginning of the afternoon, the crew of Air-France flight AF-3532 (Nice to London) observed an unusual phenomenon. UFOCOM asked some questions to the pilot and commander of the flight, Jean-Charles Duboc.
INTERVIEW OF COMMANDANT DUBOC:
You were a flight commanding officer at AIR France and on January 28, 1994, you have encountered an unusual phenomenon as you were doing the Nice to London flight 3532. Could you tell what you witnessed?
I was indeed commander of flight AF-3532 of January 28, 1994, with copilot Valerie Chauffour, and 24 passengers on board.
I have kept a copy of the “OCTAVE”, which is the data-processing follow-up of the flight and I can specify that above the Paris area at the altitude of 11700 meters (FL 390), the outside temperature was of minus 59 Celsius degrees, and with a wind from the North-West had a speed of1 80 km/h (311°/101 kts).
The visibility was of more than 300 km (150 Nm) and the cloud cover consisted of altocumulus. The flight encountered no air shakes. The navigation was under excellent weather conditions, in spite of the facing wind of almost 130 km/h (70 kts). That gave us a ground speed of 650 km/h (350 kts).
The takeoff hour in Nice was 00h56PM UT and the arrival hour in London 02:13PM UT.
It was a particularly calm flight, without particular problem. We arrived above Coulommiers when a steward who was in the cockpit noticed an object which he thought could be a weather balloon. This object was then seen by the copilot and myself a few moments afterwards.
According to their description it seemed to have a variable form and to come very quickly across our road. I first identified it like an aircraft facing us, at approximately 45 km (25 Nm), at an altitude of approximately 10500 meters (25 Nm) and at an angle close to 45°.
I found this slope absolutely abnormal because aircraft are not inclined at this altitude beyond 30 degrees without risking to fall down. This object seemed to us then absolutely abnormal by its size which seemed immense, its dark red color and of the fuzzy edges. I had the impression to observe a gigantic lens in evolution.
It did not resemble anything we had seen in our flying careers.
This object, this phenomenon, remained motionless while we left it on our left side, still at an approximate distance of 45 km. We observed it during a good minute, conscious that we were seeing something utterly anomalous. We continued to observe it when it gradually merged with the environment. We saw it becoming translucent, transparent, diluted in space. That was absolutely amazing.
After some interrogations we contacted the control center of Rheims to announce this unidentified object to them, as we are required by air transportation regulation.
Was this “object” tracked by your instruments? What about he black box of flight 3532? Were the communications between your aircraft and the control center in Rheims recorded?
Our ON BOARD instruments are not intended to locate other aircraft.
The airborne radar is only intended to locate storms in order to be able to avoid the air movements ascending and descending, associated with them, characteristic of these clouds, the cumulonimbus. During this event the radar was not in operation, as it is only necessary in instrument flying (IFR).
In the same way, the black box cannot in any case detect aircraft or phenomena far away from the plane. On the Airbus 320 there is a first recorder which is the Quick Access Recorder (QAR). It records only flight parameters, speed, altitude, mechanics, engines, electric, etc. It is analyzed by the maintenance service.
The second recorder, the DFDR, has the same recordings but must support the constraints of an accident. This recorder is analyzed only if a crash occurs or on request of the crew. As no parameter of our flight has been modified, the tapes were not analyzed because it would have been pointless.
The UFO was at nearly 45 km of our aircraft, and there has been no electric or magnetic disturbances.
On the other hand this UFO was approximately 10 km above Paris, and the Parisian people, under layer of clouds, were much closer to the UFO than we were. If there had been electromagnetic disturbances, a few million people would have noticed it.
The communications were always preserved, and it is the same for the main TV and radio shows!
Which were the continuations of this affair, at a professional and personal level? Have you been interviewed by the civilian or military authorities?
In the immediate, the continuations were non-existent, because I did not submit a written report to avoid being ridiculed. It was three years later, as I read an article from Paris Match, which described how a UFO has been detected above Paris, that I made the connection between this UFO and that what I had seen.
I then submitted a report to the Gendarmerie Nationale French police, having an SOP for collection of UFO reports. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Me and 4 others (that want to remain silent on this matter) were deployed to a work site deep in the Desert in Saudi Arabia (oilfield work, I am a Data Acquisition Systems Specialist with a Software development Diploma and several Microsoft Development Certifications). We were driving down what they call a “skid road” (off road path through the desert, about 6 hours east of Dammam, and about 2 hours north east of Haradh). It is a very dangerous and bumpy road. On the back of the truck we had this very long and heavy hose that was needed for a MPD Job (Managed Pressure Drilling) tied down in the back of a pickup truck. We stopped to check on the hose. We shut off the truck and killed the lights. It was pitch black, beautiful if you ask me. I looked up into the night sky and noticed I could see Stars (very uncommon especially now, usually there is enough sand in the atmosphere that stars aren’t visible only the moon). I first pulled out a camera we use for taking photos of possible job sites while we do evaluation surveys.. then I pulled out my phone to take some pictures of what I believe to be Orion’s belt and thought nothing of it (NOTE: I have not reviewed the pictures on the work camera as of yet, I do not have it in my possession but will have access to it on the 22nd of July) The hose was good then we began our journey. Shortly afterwards.. we took a wrong turn and almost hit a well head. We stumbled upon a vacant lease (drilling job site). It wasn’t large and square in Nature. We backed up to take the road we thought we entered. Again the area was almost a perfect square but yet there was no path (road) behind us. It took us all 30 minutes to get our”wits” about us and to find the road out of this area and continue to the job site. We all found it to be very strange. One day later I was reviewing the picture on my phone and was AMAZED and SHOCK on what I seen.. A UFO coming “down” and making a very sharp turn. It was AMAZING! I always wanted to witness something of the sort. The last few days I was contemplating the journey to the job site after the picture was taken and how confused we were. This is an assumption but I am assuming something else happened. Maybe contact, information distribution, not sure. Also there was only one good picture on my phone.
KENS NOTE: This case was investigated by Steve Hudgeons and was classified as unknown. Steve is the International Director of Investigations for MUFON.
We normally do not investigate camera captures because the witness did not see the UFO but there are exceptions to every rule.
Hi Ken: I was in my bed fast asleep when I suddenly awoke…. To my surprise over by the window there were three fiery orange glowing spheres of light that were in a line just hanging there in the air. I was very alarmed by this so I sat up in bed and just stared at them wondering what the hell they could be. There was no movement from them at all and I was really perplexed by these tennis ball sized spheres. I had seen these types of sphere UFOs before in many pictures and videos over the years but to see them in my house especially in my bedroom was scary. I was unsure of there intentions as I just stared at them intently waiting for anything to happened… Then about 8 minutes later something did indeed happen. A small white light emerged from the middle fiery sphere and flew towards me before it stopped. The white light was translucent in nature but was very bright. I have seen these small types of white lights before at Teignmouth they seem to follow me around while I walked along the path next to Brunel’s railway. I had always wondered what they were and where they had originated from. It is pretty clear to me now that these small lights are some type of surveillance device. I really must of caught the unwanted attention of someone because of my deep research into ufology… I watched the small light for a while before I turned my attention back to the three fiery orange glowing spheres of light which had now began to fade away. I watched as they completely faded out and disappeared. I then watched as the small translucent white light began to move towards me. It flew right up to my face and then slowly moved around my head like it was scanning me. I tried to grab it but it had no substance to it. Even though it was made of light I could see that it was some type of technology. It was far beyond my understanding. Our scientist are only just starting to understand quantum mechanics utilizing quantum bits for computing and I’m telling you this was really next level stuff… this technology was on a spectral level. The light then flew out of the closed window passing straight through the glass. This translucent white light still comes back inside the house from time to time to spy on me and see what I am up to. It’s very strange to know that I am under surveillance by an unseen force somewhere out there. This incident took place back in August of 2018 at Newton Abbot Devon England. Stay safe my friend All the best John.

On the evening of March 8, 1994, residents of Southwest Michigan began seeing strange things in the skies over Lake Michigan to the south of Holland. Blue, white, red, and green lights, sometimes attached to cylindrical objects, and sometimes performing unusual maneuvers, were reported.
911 operators began receiving calls at around 9:30 p.m. about something that looked like “a string of Christmas lights way up in the sky.” It wasn’t just a few people reporting these things; it was counties all up and down Lake Michigan. Some sources said 300 witnesses, including several police officers, saw the lights.
There were so many reports that one of the Ottawa County 911 operators decided to call the National Weather Service radar operator at Muskegon. The conversations that 911 had with the NWS operator were taped and later made their way into the media. The radar operator’s voice could be heard describing abrupt movements of the object and multiple objects appearing on the radar screen.
He said that what he was seeing could not be precipitation, especially at that height. One object was tracked moving twenty miles in ten seconds.
Holland police officer Jeff Vellhouse spoke to the operator of the Muskegon radar that picked up the radar tracks:
“He said he had three things on his radar, and they were in a triangular shape. He said they hovered over Holland and moved southwest. He said that one would move out of the triangular pattern, then move back in.”
The radar operator also reported: “There were three and sometimes four blips, and they weren’t planes. Planes show as pinpoints on the scope, these were the size of half a thumbnail. They were from 5 to 12,000 feet at times, moving all over the place. Three were moving toward Chicago. I never saw anything like it before, not even when I’m doing severe weather.”
It was said that there was no NWS written or taped records of the radar contacts themselves, but Dave Reinhart of BIMUP (Bureau of Investigators of Mysteries & Unusual Phenomena) claimed to have received copies of the NWS radar operator’s report in late 1994. He also said that he had talked to an individual referred to as “Fred”, who worked at Area 51 and who had knowledge that what occurred on the night of March 8, 1994 was some sort of rendezvous of UFOs from the east, west, north, and south.
Scott Ruiter of Grand Haven saw the lights in Grand Haven Township at 10:30 p.m. March 7: “It looked like about five airplanes following each other fairly closely. One would blink, then the other, other and other, right to left,”
The National Weather Service later tried to downplay the radar trackings: “There is no relation between the UFOs and the radar tracks,” said Dean Gulezian, the weather service’s area manager for Michigan. Gulezian said that although the radar did show some echoes, one key thing is the eyewitnesses saw these things at tree-top level, while the radar echoes were from an altitude of 10,000 feet or higher.” (Note above where the first witnesses reported seeing something like a string of Christmas lights “way up in the sky”)
Randee Murphy and her husband, of Ada Township, observed a “huge” shape for about two minutes as it flew slowly about 100 feet over the woods outside their home. “It had four lights,” she said, and “made a soft, whirring noise. It sounded like a single jet engine.” The Michigan flap continued for several days, presumably ending on the 10th. The sightings were never adequately explained.
I was a young Copilot for Aviacsa Airlines, on a Fokker 100, based in Merida Yucatan in 1993 in Mexico. We departed Monterrey Mexico for Juarez Mexico in the morning. Less than one hour into the flight we saw six very bright lights hovering over the mountains about 30 miles to the West. At first we thought they were chicken farms. Then we saw them climb above the mountain ridge were they hovered. We kept observing them while climbing our aircraft to 28000 feet. They kept getting closer and climbing with us, eventually they stopped looking like bright lights, because as they got closer to us they became very clear flying discs. All white with no contrails or wing forms. They were six and they sort of hovered and flew alongside, maybe 5 to ten miles to our left. The Captain and I discussed what they might be and the Flight attendants came in to look at them as well. They didn’t fly in straight formation like jet fighters do. They climbed with us and floated next to us for about five to ten minutes. Then I got on the radio with Air Traffic control from Monterrey, I asked them if they had Military traffic in the area… And they said no, and asked what I had seen. I said I saw six bright round objects, and immediate silence on the radio came. Then, in a split second, they disappeared. They vanished without leaving any trails or contrails. We kept looking for them and soon saw them again over the same mountain ridge, hovering as bright lights, all six of them. That week, I flew that same flight twice, and on both occasions we saw them again as bright lights hovering over the same mountain ridge. Except this time they did not approach us… This area were they were first seen is called The Area of Silence and is OFF limits by the Mexican Military. Rumor is that there is a certain mineral that changes the gravitational properties of the speed of sound, therefore , sound travels much slower. It is believed that they use that mineral for propulsion. This experience convinced me of extraterrestrial life and I know now that they been around for thousands of years, according to ancient manuscripts.
The Mapimí Silent Zone (Spanish: La Zona del Silencio) is the popular name for a desert patch near the Bolsón de Mapimí in Durango, Mexico, overlapping the Mapimí Biosphere Reserve. It is the subject of an urban myth that claims it is an area where radio signals and any type of communications cannot be received. The name Zone of Silence was not given until 1966 when Pemex, the national oil company, sent an expedition to explore the area. The leader, Augusto Harry de la Peña, was frustrated by the problems he was having with his radio. He christened it the Zone of Silence. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case has been investigated by MUFON’s International Director of Investigations Steve Hudgeons. The case was finally classified as ” unknown ”.
Mongo, IN, is located approximately 40 miles NNW of Fort Wayne, approximately 5 miles from the Michigan border. The prime witness (referred to as JK) was an area fire supervisor for the Forest Management Division, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, residing in Jackson, MI. DB was the firefighter from Howell, MI who took the pictures. FB: Cass City, MI, retired, Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
One of the witnesses was a retired Michigan State Trooper from Carroll, MI. Another was a retiree from the U.S. Postal Service. The latter did not think the object was a UFO. There was one other witness, six in all. The sighting was brief, estimated at 1-3 minutes. Six men, all retirees from age 45 on up, were sitting around a campfire at the Trading Post Campgrounds at Mongo, IN, on Wednesday, August 31st, 1994. The time was approximately 8:30 PM, Indiana time; 9:30 PM Michigan time (EDT).
The UFO Filter Center at Mt. Vernon, IN (also HQ for the Indiana Group, MUFON) received the initial report on 10/07/94, by phone. FIT Linda Dahlkemper had called me (State Director) at 11:00 AM. On the 21st, UFOFC received blow-ups of two photos, #8 and #9, drawings by the prime witness, and some news clippings.
The photos were impressive. Although the images were small and taken at night, one photo looked very much like the famous Trindade Island photo. I attempted contact with Jeff Sainio, Photo Analyst, left message on his recorder.
At approximately 10:00 AM, on 10/22, I conducted a taped telephone interview with the prime witness (JK). A letter and six Form 1’s were sent to the prime witness. I requested witness send copy of photos to me AND Jeff Sainio. The following are notes taken from the phone conversation:
“Off to the southwest it looked like the moon, glowing through the treetops, and it was low. I said, ‘that can’t be the moon’, ’cause we are in the last phase. (Moon not visible anyway). Then it started moving. Then it moved right out from behind the trees into an open area near a road and hovered toward us. And it was clear as can be.
It was a flying saucer, just that vivid. The object glided into our area at a shallow angle, turned toward us and began to hover. Standing still, the white glow turned transparent. It looked like a white strobe light on the top of the dome. A bright red flash of light under the bottom flashed 3 or 4 times like a strobe and it disappeared to the south and east very quickly, within 2 seconds.”
Before it had gone they got at least four good pictures. One of the individuals who was taking pictures around the campfire that night had a Vivitar fully automatic 35 mm camera, loaded with 400 ASA color film. He was instructed to grab his camera and shoot. He had been out West with a fire crew, fighting fires and had taken pictures out there. The lens was standard, not telephoto.
Newspaper accounts show at least two other good witnesses (the Martins) testifying that this was no blimp. Reports of a blimp (Family Channel) in area. Finally, a man, his wife, and two daughters saw the same or similar object at Hamilton, IN, and took videos. Their sighting was at 8:45 PM and a little over 20 miles SE of Mongo. The object was less than 100′ up and there was no sound. Although some of video was erased, the object in one scene is large, pear shaped, and definitely not a conventional object.
A drawing was supplied with the blow-ups of negatives #8 & #9, and witness states that this is what the UFO looked like, as it was very bright and coming in, first like the moon. Object had panels that could be seen when the object was due south. He says drawing/photos don’t do justice to the actual event. There was absolutely no noise. Three dogs did not react in any way.
He was out hunting the next day and actually saw the Family Channel Blimp that others had reported. “There is no way in hell (that) we saw a blimp that night.”
The object they saw and photographed on the 31st was no further than 1/4 mile away, and from 500′ high to as low as 100′ at one point. Witness then states the object was more vivid when first coming in. Apparently the object was receding on subsequent shots. At first he thought the object to be a bright meteor. It didn’t take long for them to realize that the object was not a meteor. In negative #4 & #5 you “can see a distinct line right around the center”, he said.
Source Test, Natural: All natural sources were eliminated. An EZC Skyplot for Mongo coordinates during time slot shows three planets as conspicuous targets. Jupiter and Venus were in the SW, Saturn was in the SE. Description of object, movement, and number of witnesses precludes a misidentification of an astronomical object.
Also, an on-site investigation by John Timmerman of CUFOS failed to show any other natural source that might explain the sighting.
Source Test, Man-Made: Advertising, commercial, military, and private aircraft eliminated. A blimp seemed possible. Witness testimony appeared to rule this out. Later analysis by Dr. Richard Haines effectively ruled out any type of blimp or any other source. We had already eliminated a balloon, fixed structure, hoax (on witness or by witnesses).
Twelve witnesses were reliable, object was real, description and photos (and a video) indicate an unidentified craft was in the area, along with a possible blimp.
Evaluation: Unidentified craft. Berliner Strangeness Scale: 2 (Night object); Berliner Credibility Scale: 7 (Still photo(s) by professional). Speiser Strangeness Factor: S5 (Highly strange; suggests intelligent guidance); Speiser Credibility Scale: P5 (Highly credible, leaving almost no doubt).
The self-luminous aerial object seen and photographed at Mongo, Indiana on August 31, 1994, has remained unidentified after the various evaluations cited above. On the one hand, its overall shape and flight characteristics are not unlike many scores of other UFO reported for more than fifty years from around the world, many of which were captured on photographs.
On the other hand, a blimp definitely was seen during the night of August 31, 1994 in the Mongo area. The aerial object photographed cannot be positively identified at this time. It remains a UFO. The witnesses also claim the object at one point was less than 100′ over them, was as big as a football field, and made no noise!
On 18th March 2020, I was walking with a group of four friends over the old Oswestry hill fort in Shropshire, UK. We had stopped to take some tea and while we were getting this ready we all heard a humming and buzzing noise approach us from behind and to the North West. We turned around and literally in the sky right in front of us was this very weird looking triangle shaped ‘thing’s that was clearly not any aircraft I have ever known or seen. It was moving slowly sort of towards us and quite low, I would say approx 400 to 500ft altitude. It made a slight turn and flew from right to left in front of us heading in a Southerly direction towards the town of Shrewsbury. This craft was actually quite bizarre looking and made this strange hum as it flew by. I am a retired Royal Air Force air traffic controller with 20 years service and I have never seen or known anything like this before I retired in 2019, so I am fully aware of all drone technology in the military, and can confirm that this was not anything even remotely near that! I have seen some pretty exotic aircraft in my time, and have been based at places like MoD Boscombe Down, but this craft was unlike anything in had ever seen before!
On the 25th of February, a story broke concerning an apparent UFO that had come a little too close to the International Space Station. What’s more, it remained in the picture for around 20 minutes. We, like many other UFO researchers, have pointed out before how the International Space Station has been the apparent target of UFOs on numerous occasions. Normally, however, the live broadcast switches to a screen stating there were “technical difficulties”.
On this occasion, the cameras would “remain locked on it”. As the footage surfaced online it would spread like wildfire. As did the theories as to what it was in the first place.
Estimates of its size would largely agree it to be the approximate size of a bus and was likely traveling somewhere in the region of 7.8 kilometers-per-second.
As to what the craft might be theories ranged from the obvious claims of an extraterrestrial craft to a top-secret United States space plane (the X-37B, for example, is known to perform operations at such an orbit).
Whatever the object proves to be – if indeed there is ever an explanation offered – it will likely continue to be debated around the world for some time to come.
The main witness – known as “PN” in the report – was driving through Asum, a small village in the Funen region of Denmark on his way to the warehouse where he worked at around 2 am one morning in August 1981. As he was doing so, and without warning, his car would suddenly stall. Only the fact that he was on a downward hill at the time actually kept his vehicle in motion. Seeing a T-junction coming up, he pressed his foot down on the brake, bringing the car to a halt.
As the car came to a stop, PN glanced forward. In his line of sight was a bizarre glowing object, floating several meters above the ground. So bright was the object that PN couldn’t see clearly beyond that intense yellow-orange glow and so wasn’t sure of the specific details of the shape.
He could, though, make out what appeared to be a ramp extending from the bottom of the craft to the ground below. As he looked closer, PN could see several strange entities that were making their way up and down the ramp and around the ground below as if searching for something or simply gathering things of interest. He would note how the movements, while extremely quick, were robotic-like.
As he was watching this organized chaos unfold before him, he first noticed the three other figures, much larger than the ones who continued to scurry around up and down the ramp. While two of these larger figures remained in the doorway of the craft, the third was at the bottom of the ramp. Suddenly, PN felt a lot more nervous than he had several moments earlier.
A Sudden Surge In PN’s Direction!
As he remained where he was watching the bizarre scene, he came to the realization that the strange humanoid entities were most likely guards of some kind as they remained in one position throughout. Furthermore, the more he watched the smaller entities he would notice how they appeared to be “two triangles placed on top of the other”.
He watched for several more minutes, not daring to take his eyes away from the scene for just a moment. When he finally did so, however, he noticed a taxi parked around 150 meters away from where his own vehicle stood. He also noticed how the headlights of the taxi “flashed” several times. He couldn’t, however, tell if this was aimed at himself or whether the driver of the taxi, presumably also aware of the brightly glowing object, was making attempts to communicate with these strange visitors.
It was moments after first noticing the taxi that PN realized his car would start. It was also at this point that the entities suddenly appeared aware of his presence. Within seconds they were heading toward him – and fast.
As he began to put his own vehicle in motion and beginning away from the outrageous situation, he noticed that the driver of the taxi was seemingly thinking the same thing, and had turned his car around which was now heading away from the scene in the opposite direction to PN.
Unlikely But Not Impossible There Is More Information To Come!
PN pressed his foot down as hard as he could, continuing the car’s momentum away from the glowing craft and the bizarre entities, which he could also see continuing their pursuit. They would remain in his sight for several more minutes before they finally disappeared from his view such was the sufficient distance he had put between himself and the bizarre scenario.
He didn’t see what happened to the entities after he had gotten out of visual range. And he didn’t recall seeing the glowing craft shoot high into the air. Perhaps, then, there are several things to consider.
In fact, aside from reporting the incident to the UFO investigators concerned, it is not thought there is any further information concerning this case available. However, given that there was at least one other witness to the incident, it would be interesting to see if any further details emerge at some point in the near future.
What’s more, although they are spread out across the globe, there are several other UFO sightings which feature a glowing, circular or disc-like yellow-orange craft which is on record during the same window of time. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
It was while the Northwest Airlines Airbus A319 was in the airspace of Minnesota, at around 8 pm on the evening of 25th March 2004, when the air traffic control in Minneapolis received communication from the crew that they could see two unidentified objects approximately 15 miles in front of their position and seemingly traveling in the same direction (and so maintaining this steady cushion).
The plane was traveling at an approximate altitude of 35,000 feet and it appeared the two strange objects were possibly only slightly higher than that. The crew requested any information from the control tower of other air traffic in the area.
However, the response returned that there were no signs of any other aircraft in the plane’s vicinity. They would ask the crew, though, if they were “still seeing the targets” to which they would respond they very much were.
Upon focusing on the scene in front of them further, one of the pilots felt he could see two sets of two objects, which, if correct, would mean that four individual, solid crafts were making their way, from the north, in a west, southwest direction to a destination unknown.
The two spherical objects would remain in their sight for approximately a quarter of an hour before eventually vanishing into the distance. While the plane continued its flight with no further incidents, eventually landing as planned in Los Angeles, the air traffic controller would make a report of the incident to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).
The incident would catch the attention of Peter Davenport the NUFORC’s director. So much so, that Davenport would initially arrange to speak with the witness on an upcoming talk radio broadcast. However, before the show could take place, the controller’s supervisor somehow became aware of the impending appearance and would order that the witness not appear on the show and was not to speak of the incident publicly.
While this might be nothing more than a desire to keep such “sensationalist” stories away from a commercial airline so as to avoid any potential negative effects, it also smacks ever so slightly of the way other witnesses, particularly those connected to airlines, have been silenced from telling their stories.

APRIL 23, 2007 ……FLIGHT FROM SOUTHAMPTON TO ALDERNEY ISLAND
A small civilian airliner for Aurigny Air Travel left the runway at Southampton on its way tho the island of Alderney. It was a flight that was expected to take 45 minutes, much as it had for the eight years the pilot, Ray Bowyer, had been flying the route.
They were soon at an altitude of around 4,000 feet, and with the plane on autopilot, Bowyer was filling out the necessary paperwork. As he did so, however, he noticed a strange bright yellow glow up ahead. Thinking at first it might be the reflection of the sun playing tricks with his sight, he continued to watch the bizarre glow.
When he began to make out a very visible and distinctive shape within the glow, however, he realized he was viewing a solid object.
He would report that the object was oval-shaped, relatively thin, and with very definite points at each end. What’s more, within the “brilliant yellow” of the craft was a dark band that went right the way around it.
Bowyer would contact the control tower to exclude the possibility of another aircraft in the same airspace. There was, as was expected, no other aircraft planned to be in the same region of the sky as Bowyer’s flight. The radar operator, however, would claim to have received a slight return on the radar, suggesting that something anomalous did indeed appear to be in Bowyer’s airspace.
It was as he was focusing on the object that a passenger in the aircraft spotted a second, identical craft just behind the first one. They would immediately point this out to Bowyer who quickly confirmed he too could see the second craft.
The closer he got to the two strange objects, the more he could see they were the shape of a “flattened disc”. What’s more, they had a “dark area to their right” and light appeared to “emanate from within” the crafts themselves.
Around this time, the radar tower received word from another pilot in the area. However, he could, like the radar operator, only see one strange object.
Why could Bowyer see two? Was it merely his closer proximity to them? Or might it, like we speculated in our main account above, suggest some kind of projection technology?
They Are “Not From Around Here!”
Bowyer continued onwards, watching the two strange crafts as he did so and consequently taking himself off course for his descent.
As he did so, the two crafts appeared to stack themselves, with one on top of the other. As they did so, Bowyer noticed an area in the middle of the crafts that appeared to “pulsate”. And what’s more, several colorful sparks appeared to fly out of this area.
It is perhaps this that raised concerns for his and his passengers’ safety that prompted Bowyer to finally begin his descent. By the time he was approaching the runway, the objects were no longer visible, hidden as they were behind the haze and cloud of the day.
This in itself is perhaps an interesting thing to think about. How often, even on a partly cloudy day might strange, otherworldly objects be hovering over us? And even then, how many equally otherworldly objects might do so that we just can not see?
For his part in the incident, Bowyer would state that he “was glad to get on the ground” following the incident. Perhaps of more intrigue, though, while he would stop short of saying the crafts were of extraterrestrial origin, he would state that they were “not from around here”.

Hi Ken: It was dark outside and I had a real urge to go out and do some sky watching. I really couldn’t wait to see what I could spot in the night sky so I grabbed my Nikon P900 camera and binoculars and went out through the back door into the garden where I sat down in my garden chair and began to scan the night sky for anything out of the ordinary. I was sat for about 15 minutes before I spotted something of interest. There was star like object that was very bright that wasn’t present in that part of the sky the last time I had looked so I turned my full attention towards it and began to watch. I could now see that it was moving and I thought to myself “maybe it’s a satellite” but with that the object just suddenly stopped and hung there in the sky. I knew that satellites couldn’t just stop like that so I ruled that theory out. Looking through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera I zoomed in on the area of the sky where the object was situated and immediately took a photograph. I then decided to get a better look at the object through my binoculars so I put down my Nikon P900 camera and then picked up my binoculars. Looking through my binoculars at the object it looked like it was hexagon shaped at first, but the more I stared at the object the more rounded it became in appearance which I thought was odd. Maybe it was the orientation of the object in the sky that gave that impression of it’s appearance. Then my attention was drawn to the dark black centre part of the object where a light suddenly appeared and then started to move around inside it. The object now looked bizarrely like an eye ball that was looking around the sky. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing and as I continued to watch the object it began to fade away until it was no longer visible in the sky. I was left scratching my head… What had I just witnessed? The photograph was taken on the 8th of March at 6:15 pm at Newton Abbot Devon England. Stay safe my friend all the best John.

The stunning continuation of an intensive study of UFO phenomena in which the hard science, technology, and the human mind are explored as they relate to our world and the encounters that people are still having today. In Sekret Machines: Gods , the cultural, historical, and religious aspects of mankind’s encounters with UFO’s was explained by Open Mind’s 2017 UFO Researcher of the Year and To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science founder Tom DeLonge with renowned research author Peter Levenda . Here, they continue their revelatory work in a thoroughly-researched expose that seeks to solve the scientific mysteries of the unidentified aerial phenomenon, the UFO experiencers whose lives were changed forever, and what it means for all mankind. To this end, they have divided their study into three fields of inquiry: Genetics and the ET Hypothesis. Was life on Earth actually initiated by alien life forms deliberately? Many cultures worldwide hold clues in their mythos that points to this. But for what ultimate purpose would this have? And what does that make humanity?
Consciousness. If the building blocks of life were truly transplanted by a higher intelligence with intent, was our human concept of consciousness included in that DNA? And as we evolve, are we headed toward eventual immortality as sentient beings? Human-Machine Symbiosis. In this section, the concept of technological advancement is explored–focusing on our own astounding achievements in recent years in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and robotics–which leads to a much deeper question: If we have come so far so fast, what unfathomable level of technology must the phenomenon already possess? In Sekret Machines: Man , DeLonge and Levenda go beyond the lies fed to the public for decades–using unsealed confidential records, expert analysis, and eyewitness testimony from scientists, civilians, military personnel, researchers, and UFO experiencers to reveal the wide-ranging influence that UFO forces have had upon our past, continue to exert on our present, and may hold for our future. Truly a well written and researched book that should be on every Ufologist read list.
An intriguing incident can be found in the files of GEIPAN (the official UFO department of the French government) that took place in Fleury Sur Andelle. At just before midnight on 4th January 1994, a local resident was watching television at home.
He could, however, see clearly out of his window and noticed a strange “orange light” seemingly heading towards his property in a “to and fro” motion. This description of how the craft moved, incidentally, is a detail that shows up in many other UFO encounters.
As he moved to the window to see the object fully, he noticed it was a cone-shaped craft that appeared to be “turning on its own axis” as it approached. He would notice that several different colors appeared to emanate from the object.
Then, it suddenly shot off back into the distance before returning once more to right outside his property. It was around this time that the witness began to feel a sense of fear run through him, as well as the feeling that whoever, or whatever, was inside the craft, they were watching him. This made his retreat a little way back into the darkness of his room.
After several minutes, the witness would hear movement outside his property, as well as noticing several flashes. Even more bizarre, at the same time, he noticed a strange “contraction” feeling in his legs and back.
The next thing he knew, the craft was gone. He was, however, extremely disturbed by the incident. Perhaps even more chilling is the previous evening in Ecouis, an almost identical object was witnessed. And what’s more, it behaved in the exact same manner, approaching a house from a distance before hovering outside for some time.
The Humanoid Encounter In Tronville en Barrios, 4th January 1994
On the same evening in Tronville en Barrios, an entire family, who were just about to go to bed for the night, would witness a “bright light” hovering over the road which cut through the two fields which ran along each side of it.
As the four witnesses continued to watch, they noticed the lights decreasing in brightness. So much so that they could soon see a “bowl-shaped” object with a “transparent dome”. A little more unnerving, though, were the three “human-shaped” figures they could see inside the dome. They each had on a shiny uniform, and at least one of them appeared to have a head much too large for its body.
The family would alert their neighbors, who would also watch events unfold with fascination. Even more so when a door at the side of the strange object opened and one of the humanoid figures stepped out momentarily. He would appear to be examining the ground, which he did with a torch-like device for several moments.
He would then return inside the object which subsequently took off into the night sky. Following this close encounter, several other residents of the area would report a glowing red object overhead.
Bizarre Luminous Objects Sighted Over Nouzonville, 9th January 1994
According to another GEIPAN report, at around 7:30 pm on 9th January 1994, only five days after the cone-shaped incident, in the Nouzonville region of France, two witnesses – a young woman and her friend – would witness and report a “luminous rectangular” object in the skies overhead.
So enthralled with the bizarre object were the witnesses they would stop their vehicle in order to view it clearer. They could see that white and red lights appeared to surround the edge of the craft but it would suddenly become lost in the clouds.
They would quickly get back in their car and continue on the road, all the while looking for the strange object to appear once more. When it did, the pair once more brought the car to a stop and stepped outside in order to watch.
However, this time, instead of a glowing rectangular object, she could see an oval-shaped craft, once more with an outer edge of red and white lights. Whether this is the same object or a second craft is uncertain. There are, though, many cases on record of objects changing shape, sometimes right in front of the witness’s eyes.
The pair would watch the craft until it too disappeared. They would further notice how silent it was. They would report the incident. However, no explanation was ever provided to the pair and the incident remain unresolved. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Driving home on an extremely misty night I noticed four lights very close together and low in the sky. I was on a date and we pulled over to see what we were looking at because we couldn’t understand why there would be so many. We drove after the crafts to figure out what they were. Only to realize as we looked there were more and more of them at every direction. We stopped in the road when we came to a field on our left with a clear view of two crafts coming in from the left together and another craft closer to us and low down joining up with the other two while two more crafts where approaching from higher heights from our right. They all were blinking And completely quiet about the size of a car just barely over the tree line as well as at varying heights and distances in the sky. Some were moving faster than others but they seemed to be merging in some places and then continuing onwards while others floated around by themselves . All of the crafts had lights on them and because the night was so cloudy they all stuck out in the sky even the far away ones. We then drove Up to a cemetery on the top of town to get a better view and for over an hour saw over 30 of these aircraft some moving together then splitting up some just hovering while others moved close nearby them. Generally they were all heading in the east direction whether they immediately sped up to go in that direction or hovered in their area before eventually going over until out of view. I was able to see at least 10 at any given time and various distances away and heights throughout the sky with very dense fog on the ground. They seem to be never ending and unclear of where they all were coming from but it was obvious they were all heading in a similar direction I eventually started my drive back home again and saw a few more of them less concentrated and more staggered throughout the sky but right before I got into the next town over there was no mist and the skies were completely clear and empty there. Many people I know keep trying to tell me I saw drones, but I these had a solid structure with a wide front that was a front width of the length of a car . Seemed Pancake shaped with edges to it as well as a wide front. The sheer number of them as I know there where many more than what I saw in that hour is the most alarming to me. I followed up with the drone academy of NJ-the next day which isn’t far from that town and they reported no meet ups or any events that could have explained what I saw. They mentioned maybe government operations and to call local police. I did and they had no reports that night and said given the closeness of local small airports it’s unlikely anything non commercial would be allowed in that airspace. The officer I spoke to said growing up in the town that on a few occasions he himself had witnessed strange hovering lights overhead driving into town from the same direction I was. Still freaked out but very sure of what I saw. What I saw was unexplainable. I’m just happy someone else was with me to also witness it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Chief Investigator Glenn Green of MUFON New Jersey is investigating this case.
At around 11:15 am on 17th June 1977, Jose Francisco Rodrigues was speeding down the runway of Tancos Airbase in a Portuguese Air Force aircraft – a Dornier 27 – ready to embark a routine flight. The 23-year-old was already an experienced pilot, with over 800 flying hours of flight behind him. He was soon leaving the ground and heading into the cloudy, grey, skies overhead, which looked likely to disperse their soaking load at any time.
Around 45 minutes later, he was approaching the Castelo de Bode Dam, a hydroelectric facility, which could perhaps be of key importance as to the events that would unfold next.
Castelo de Bode Dam
As the pilot scanned his surroundings, he would suddenly notice a dark object coming out of a bank of clouds slightly ahead of him. He at first believed the object to be another plane so he changed his course before radioing to base for confirmation of other aircraft in the area. However, rather than confirm the other “plane”, the base claimed to have nothing out of the ordinary of their radar screens. And more to the point, no other aircraft apart his Dornier plane.
He decided to turn his plane once more so that he could examine the object further if indeed it was even there. However, when the control tower heard Rodrigues cry out in alarm as if something had surprised him, it was evident to all that something out of the ordinary was taking place.
There, directly in front of the young pilot’s plane, was a dark, round object, unlike any aerial vehicle Rodrigues had ever seen.
Disappeared In An Instant “From A Stationary Position!”
Knowing he was not looking at a plane but not knowing exactly what the strange craft was, Rodrigues would take in as much detail as possible. He would later state that the upper part of the object was black, although part of it was obscured by the clouds. Meanwhile, the lower part was made of several different panels.
It remained where it was “no more than 6 meters away” from his plane before suddenly vanishing into the distance at fantastic speed. And what’s more, and something not at all lost on the pilot at the time, it did so “from a stationary position”.
Impression of pilot’s view of UFO
It was at this point the pilot’s plane began to suddenly vibrate greatly while the compass began to spin aimlessly. Within seconds, despite his engine working, the plane went into a freefall nosedive, the treetops near the dam wall suddenly rushing up to meet him.
He would ultimately open his throttle and just as he was “almost touching the treetops” he regained control of the plane. Furthermore, he would manage to land the plane back at the base. After undergoing a medical evaluation (which he would pass with no problems) he would report the incident to his superiors. It was noted, however, how distressed he was due to the experience. An experience who both the doctors and his superiors accepted must be something a lot more than “just engine trouble”.
Corroborative Witnesses And Further Strange Events
In fact, the Portuguese Air Force would investigate the case thoroughly, and would ultimately cooperate with “independent” UFO investigators.
There were also two witnesses, who would corroborate Rodrigues’s version of events. At least as far as the loss of control of his plane. Two shepherds happened to notice his Dornier suddenly take the nosedive just over the dam. They would also witness the plane suddenly level out thanks to the pilot’s quick thinking.
They would even offer that they heard a loud noise before the plane came out of its “falling leaf” like descent. Both the description of the fall and the loud noise would match the nosedive and the opening of the throttle to regain control of the plane.
What’s more, at the actual dam facility itself, although they were unaware of Rodrigues or the bizarre object he had witnessed, at the same time he began to experience plane trouble, they would notice a sudden drop in pressure and energy. As if everything was suddenly being drained. The incident would last only a few seconds. Most likely for as long as the nosedive of the plane. It would, however, cause great concern to those working at the facility at the time.
Might it be a case of coincidence? It surely would, though, take the most skeptical mind to dismiss entirely the likeliness that a genuine connection exists between the two strange incidents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
