I was in a large, fast boat searching for a lost boat that had not returned to port that night. There were 5 of us. While we were out in the middle of the night, we saw a red glowing light about a half mile away and thought it was the lost boat’s light. We followed it at high speed for about 30 minutes, never catching it as it kept its distance from us. We all thought “maybe the boat was farther away than we thought”, since it was very late at night and a small light. We chased the light again for about another 45 minutes, but it stayed exactly the same distance ahead of us. Finally, the light disappeared, so we went to the spot where we thought it was last located. The captain turned off the engine so we could listen. We all took a side of the boat to look and listen. After about two minutes, the captain, who was at the front/stern of the boat screamed. We immediately ran up there (it was a large cabin cruiser). He was somewhat shocked. He said that a red globe, slightly bigger than a basketball, had risen up out of the water and stopped about 3 feet in front of him. Before he could say anything, it had accelerated into the night sky. We never saw it again. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Our family had just come to America about 1 year before. I was 10 years old then. We eventually moved to Southern New Jersey, in a town called Millville. The house was old and in need of many repairs. I helped my dad clear the overgrown weeds in the yard, and in a few days the yard looked pristine.
About a week later I awoke from a sound sleep and bright lights were shining into my room from the back yard. I got up and looked out the window into the yard and I couldn’t believe at what I was seeing. There appeared to be two translucent spheres just sitting still inside our yard. They had a soft white glow to them. I quickly went downstairs and went out the kitchen, which led to the backyard.
I simply could not believe what I was looking at. Two shed sized spherical objects were hovering inches off the ground, right next to each other, they made no sound, and there was no recognizable writing anywhere on them.
I reluctantly touched them, and they felt warm to the touch, and very smooth, you could almost see inside them but not quite, like they had a light frosted texture to them with a familiar shadowing. That made it difficult to completely see inside them and this may sound crazy, but they both completely resembled like our moon. Let me repeat that, the shadowing was a perfect match for the shadowing of our moon, craters and everything, and if I didn’t know any better, I would swear they were miniature replicas of our moon. I know how bizarre that sounds, but that particular fact haunts me to this day.
There was enough room for me to walk between them as I touched them and I know this is going to again sound as crazy as this story, but I felt as if my brain was being flooded with some type of incomprehensible information, at least incomprehensible for the time being. I can’t recall exactly how long I was out there but, I do remember my feet getting wet from the patches of grass that had already grown. It was a summer night, and the air was muggy.
It seemed like I was out there forever, but if I had to guess i would say, for at least 20 minutes. At one point the intensity of the light of both spheres intensified to a much brighter hue and, I instinctively backed off several feet. Without any other warning both spherical objects both shot straight up, and in a fraction of a second totally disappeared, leaving me in the dark. I stared at the night sky for a few minutes trying to process all of it. I had a sense that this was an experience of a lifetime and, felt lucky.
With that, I made my way back through the kitchen door and looked at the clock on the wall, it was exactly 3:30am. I grabbed a towel from the closet and dried off my feet and, laid back in my bed. I couldn’t go back to sleep, I just kept thinking about what had happened and I never uttered a word of it in the morning to anyone. I went out in the backyard and looked where the spheres were located but there was not even a hint of a sign, that anything had been there. This event made me seriously think about all the images that ran through my head as I was touching the spheres.
I had no idea that the information would make sense years later. This particular encounter has been key to come to a most logical conclusion about the birth, life, and death of our known part of this observable measurable universe. I have placed a generic picture that most closely resembles what I witnessed, coincidently I found a picture of multiple moon looking UFOs and, I zoomed in to recreate my encounter. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
My first extraterrestrial experience happened at around the age of 6. One night I visited my aunt’s apartment, just a floor above ours, as we lived in a condominium at the time. It was starting to get dark, and the adults were going to watch an adult film. So, as it happened, I was sent out to the outdoor balcony while they enjoyed their adult entertainment.
As I faced the balcony railing just above the railing from the right of me, came into view a glowing red sphere (which I would say was no bigger than maybe, a common soccer ball) just floating along very slowly it made a soft buzzing sound as if a swarm of bees were inside of it. As it passed in front of me it stopped. and the glow intensified in magnitude, a red dot appeared at the center of the sphere the dot shot out to, what I can only describe today as a laser beam that was wide at the end enough to cover all of me, it made several passes up and down and then sideways over my body. I felt no discomfort whatsoever as this was going on, but I could not move either, I was paralyzed and even my speech was silenced. I was literally a captive audience.
The dot disappeared and the glow of the sphere returned to its original magnitude… the object then continued along it way and as soon as it was far enough its paralyzing effects abated ,so naturally I being curious ,I went to the edge of the balcony railing and looked to the left seeing the red sphere floating along and going on its merry way … naturally I tried to tell all inside when they finally let me back in but you know how that went…
About six months after this incident, I developed a very aggressive ganglion cyst behind my right knee, and it quickly reached the size of a softball. It was surgically removed, and it took me about another 6 months to regain full mobility…
I am fully convinced that the scan I received was either partially or fully responsible for my cyst…. furthermore, I’m totally convinced that it introduced a precognitive/intuitive ability that I can only use not at will, but at random to safeguard myself or anything pertaining to my personal everyday occurrences, from any type of harm by forewarning me of a pending event. I have added a generic picture of the object that most closely resembles what I experienced. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
SPECIAL THANKS TO UFOLOGIST AND WITNESS JOHN H. CARPENTER
10:30 – 10:45 p.m. A witness came forward and called me from Smithers, B.C. after she read a short article in the Smithers Interior Newspaper about a sighting of a pink object which was witnessed by another lady over the Smithers Ski Hill Road on April 8, 2004. The witness was on her way to work as she works the graveyard shift. As she traveled around a corner on Harris Road by Harris Auto Wrecking, she saw a extremely large bright pink object low in the sky. The lady said she had never seen anything like it in all the years she lived in the area and also wondered if it might have been an airplane coming in for a landing at the Smithers airport. She told me the object had to have been the size of a full moon and on the outer edge of the object the color was a much lighter pink in color. As the woman drove along, she said it passed overhead at approx: tree top level and at approx: 100 to 200 feet away from her in distance.
As the lady and the object passed one another she slowed her truck down and turned around to watch the object move slowly into the distance and as she watched it finally just blinked out. When the woman continued on her journey, after seeing the strange object, she told me that she was questioning herself, “did I just see that”! Later that evening and at her workplace, her and another lady went outside for a coffee break and the witness mentioned that she had seen something very strange when she was on her way to work. I asked the lady if she thought it might have been a flare or even fireworks someone had maybe set off. The witness said she has never seen a flare or fireworks travel horizontally just over tree top level and for such a long distance. There was no sound noted. The object was reported to be visible for approx: one minute. This same object has been seen twice on two different occasions in the Smithers area. Thank you to the witness for the report. NOTE: The above image is real but from a Jacksonville Florida UFO case file.
I am a storm spotter with the National Weather service and accustomed to seeing things in the sky. During the “off-season” I like to shoot slow motion video of lightening whenever storms pass through. That’s what I was doing at the time. Since lightening is unpredictable, I hit record, let it run for about a minute, then stop. I’ll do this the length of the storm then review the recordings when I am finished. Upon review I realized that I had captured something on video that I cannot explain. This particular video I had hit record and realized I was in standard video mode and not slow motion, so I stopped it within a few seconds, switched to slow motion and went on. As such the video is very short. I’ve asked my peers in meteorology what they think it is and no one has an answer. That is what brought me here. I’m at a loss for an explanation. The first video is the original and the second is brightened up to see the object more clearly. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. KENS NOTE: The above image was extracted from the video.
I had a telephone call from a couple who reside in Nelson, B.C. who witnessed an odd sight. They report that while traveling north along the Kootenay River on highway 3A they saw what appeared to be an egg shaped object which sat stationary over the river. Around the center of it was a broken ring of blue lights, they said there was a good number of these lights which were very bright and not flashing. The witnesses guessed the object was at an altitude of about 500 to 600 feet above the river. The husband who was driving wanted to stop to investigate this unusual sight, but due to his wife being frighten they kept moving but at a slower pace as he was certainly curious to know what this was. A short distance down the highway his wife looked behind to see if it was still there, but she could not see any thing.
They said whatever it was had disappeared or turned out it’s lights. The husband estimates that the object was 40 to 50 feet in length at the most. They heard no sound, but they told me the windows were rolled up in their vehicle and the radio on. One other thing they commented on, the object having a completely smooth surface to it, or at least the areas they could see clearly. The husband said he is kicking himself now that he didn’t stop to have a good look at the object. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
Date of Sighting: November or December of 1971 Time of Sighting: Night Location of Sighting: Over Nuclear Power Plant in Pickering, Ontario, Canada Latitude: 43.84 Degrees North Longitude: 79.08 Degrees West Number of Witnesses: One Weather: Sketch Shows That Skies Were Clear.
Description: I haven’t spoke of it until now. There was one other boy that saw it because he ran out on to the street to see if anyone else saw what I did. His description matched mine. It was in November or December of 1971. I lived as close as one could to the Pickering Nuclear Plant in Ontario, Canada. I’m not sure how long the Plant was up and running. (I would estimate that it had been running 4 or 5 years.) What I saw was this: It was outside the atmosphere, that I could tell. It was at night so it stood out against the sky. It looked like a pinwheel fireworks. It was still and spinning, throwing out what looked like sparks or light tails? It had me mesmerized until in my peripheral to the right I noticed a single red light. I dismissed it and continued watching it. The red light began moving towards the pinwheel from a great distance very slowly from my point of view. At first I thought it was a plane, but there was no sound. As I watched it further it appeared to be approaching this pinwheel. And at the very moment it came in contact they both vanished. The red dot was much smaller against the pinwheel. So, that’s what I saw. Any ideas?
Comments: Unusual aerial activity has been reported over other nuclear plants and over nuclear weapons facilities. I have no idea what the witness sighted. Given that the date of the sighting is unknown and that the sighting is over 35 years old little investigation can be performed. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
Here is a photo that I took one night (on or about 7 Feb 2010) while at our office in the MLG compound on Camp Leatherneck Afg. I know that ALL of my friends on FB that were with us saw the same thing. They were up there long enough that people were leaving. They were up there for a long time without moving. They went away for a while and then came back. They didn’t move or blink or make any noise. They looked like they were really high up but there was nothing to base that on. Pretty cool event. Now that I have seen it on TV it is super cool that we were able to witness it. 1. I was in my office in the MLG Compound on Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. 2. One of the Marines in the Company came into the office to tell us about the lights.
3. At first, we thought maybe flares or weather balloons, but they didn’t change alt. or fade out or fall. 4. As my attachments show there were 7 equally spaced lights in the sky that did not appear to move or change. 5. Very interested to see the lights, so many people saw them and didn’t even stop to look at them. There was a lot going on during the day but nothing to distract us during the sighting. 6. I hate to say it but after maybe 45 minutes we just went back inside to work. I have 4 more pics they are sharper but since I was moving, they make the light appear as if they were moving.
KENS NOTE: This photo is not Star Link because it was not operational in 2010.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration might have recorded an unidentified flying object (UFO) slamming into the International Space Station (ISS) on March 19.
A British UFO enthusiast named Graham claimed that the orb-like object that struck the ISS was “intelligent-controlled.” He explained that the orb appeared to have changed direction after the impact. It also stayed bright while it hurtled back into the darkness.
“As I was watching the footage, the object struck the ISS close to the camera on the station, I flinched as I was not expecting that to happen,” he said. “The crew was performing a port relocation in the Soyuz craft to move it to the space-facing side of the station to make way for the arrival of the new crew members.”
NASA clip shows weird orb hitting the ISS
The mysterious event was seen on NASA’s livestream of a port relocation maneuver by the ISS crew. A camera installed on the ISS initially showed the Soyuz capsule and a thin film of smoke against a black background. After a while, a white, luminous, “perfectly spherical” orb emerged from behind the capsule and zoomed past it, heading straight toward the space station. The supposed UFO then quickly bounced and changed its direction by drifting to the left.
“The object appears to change course and moves away from the Soyuz and the ISS at increasing speed,” Graham said. “Another thing that I found interesting is the object does not seem to lose any brightness as it approaches the top of the screen and goes into shadow. Is this an indication of self-illumination?”
The UFO enthusiast, who runs a YouTube channel called “Conspiracy Depot,” also noticed an elongated object that darted from the center of the screen. He suggested that this could be “watching over” the ISS.
Many viewers expressed their fascination with the footage, saying that the supposed UFO was unlike anything they had seen before.
“I’ve never seen one of these orbs in space either but have seen plenty in videos on earth,” one person commented. “I do think more than likely the cigar-shaped thing is a craft.”
Another agreed that spherical UFOs were common on the planet and added: “Also anything that doesn’t go in a straight line is definitely intelligently controlled.”
But not all agreed. Others opined that the object was just space debris passing by the ISS.
Disclosures are mounting with upcoming UFO report
Graham surmised that more information on UFO sightings will surface as June draws near. The Department of Defense (DoD) and other intelligence agencies will be submitting a report on past UFO sightings on the first day of that month.
The report was mandated by an order included in this year’s appropriations bill.
Graham also noted that disclosures about past UFO sightings had been mounting recently. Just last month former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe disclosed that the Pentagon has evidence of UFOs that could not be explained by known technology. These included flying objects that broke the sound barrier without a sonic boom. The ex-intel chief revealed that there were more of these sightings than had been made public.
I am a pilot for a major US airline. We were flying a red eye from Las Vegas to Cincinnati. Throughout the flight all night, there was chatter on both Guard frequency (121.5) and our ATC frequencies about aircraft seeing strange things. A bunch of aircraft saw something over Pueblo Colorado about an hour to 90 minutes prior to our sighting (we didn’t see whatever was over Pueblo, just heard radio chatter on it). At about 0330 EST, we had just passed over Kansas City and the Captain said something like “whoa, what was that?!?!” I asked him what he saw, and he said, “it looked like a slow-moving meteor.” He had the cockpit lights on full bright to keep us awake so I recommended we turn the lights down to get a better look. He agreed and we dimmed the cockpit.
A short time later, we both saw a bright orb of light off in the distance, bearing about 070 or 11:30 clock code from our nose (we were heading roughly 085ish from memory). The light was extremely bright, similar to a night space shuttle launch I had seen decades prior. It did not turn the sky blue at night like the space shuttle, but it was VERY luminescent. We used parachute flares when I flew jets in the military and the brightest of the three lights was exponentially brighter than a parachute flare (and it wasn’t Venus, both the Captain and I were familiar with Venus being bright and even talked about it). We then we saw a second light which was dimmer flying around the main one (this was NOT stars, satellites, Autokinesis, or somatagraphic illusion). Shortly after we saw a third that was very dim. We would not have seen this if we had not seen the bright light initially.
We witnessed these lights for well over 20 minutes as we flowed east to Cincinnati. The sighting was not continuous as the lights would fade out or disappear then come back a few minutes later in the same area (11:30 ish off our nose). We saw these until we got closer to Cincinnati and a high cirrus layer of clouds blocked our view (also from our descent on the instrument arrival). There were no clouds in the area of the sightings, it was a crystal-clear night. One thing I am not sure of at all is whether these lights were flowing east with us or just so bright that we could see them over 200 miles away. We were cruising at 0.8 mach so if we saw these for over 20 minutes, we would have covered 160 nautical miles. These lights always remained at our 11:30 out the windscreen. Instinct says the objects were hovering over an area and were just so bright we could see them from a great distance, but this is just a hunch. I will share a little more if someone deems this worth investigating. Some I would like to keep discreet. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
No one has been able to explain more than half of the UFO encounters in the last year. And in 2021 and 2022 there have been an increasing number of UFO sightings. This is one of the surprising facts outlined in the Senate Intel report done by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and submitted to Congress.
The U.S. is acknowledging more than ever that UFOs, now known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, need to be investigated.
NASA recently pulled 16 space scientists together for an expanded study of UFOs. We know that “they” are out there. We just don’t know what “they” are.
Senate Intel Report describes classified UFOs
The 22-page report details 366 cases of UFO encounters in 2021. And alleges that more than 150 of them remain unexplained.
In an interview, Daily Mail reporter Josh Boswell explains that “The sources that I have been telling me they just don’t know what these things are. You know, there’s a proportion of these cases, 366 in this classified report, that’s going to Congress probably tomorrow that are explained, that are Chinese drones, for example.”
“The unexplained ones just have no clue, because these things are moving in ways that we just don’t understand. At hypersonic speeds, and then they just turn on a dime. I mean, it’s incredible,” Boswell said.
Due to the prevalence of the stigma and retaliation against those who report encounters with extraterrestrial objects, it is becoming harder to do so, with an increased frequency.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has acknowledged the importance of addressing the issue of UFOs and aviation safety.
For decades, commercial pilots did not report UFO sightings for fear of retaliation. Those who did report were often penalized on the job or at the very least stigmatized for their encounters with UAPs. NOTE: The above image is real but from an Australian case file.
I was watching TV and the dogs needed to go out. When I got up to put them outside a little voice in my head said to bring my phone. On my way out the voice said to check the settings. I checked the settings to make sure I had them right 60 fps and resolution at 3840×2160. I used no digital zoom. I did 2x optical zoom that way there is no digital enhancement. I figured I can enlarge it on my computer. Well, it worked great. The video is about 2:00 minutes long but the object is only seen for about 35-40 seconds. When I zoomed in to the individual frames, I was amazed at what I saw. A glowing sphere with purple, yellow, red, green and blue “flames” coming off it. The “flames” look more like plasma coming off the object. I will post some sequential frames from the video. Remember each picture is 1/60th of a second. You will need to zoom in on the object with whatever program you use to open the picture. Most will let you zoom in really well. I wanted to upload more but you can only do so many. The day before this sighting I saw a triangle craft that had flashing bright white lights. But that’s for another time. There are magnetic anomalies here that I have documented too. I will put video up after it’s been looked at.
On August 18th pilot Mark Hulsey was flying a charter jet off the coast of Los Angeles. coast.
He notified the controller that “We’ve got a few aircraft to our north here and he’s going around in circles, much higher altitude than us. Any idea what they are?”
Hulsey radioed in 23 minutes later saying that four aircraft had joined the three aircraft he reported earlier. And the seven UFOs were flying between 5,000 and 10,000 feet above his plane.
“They just keep going in circles. I was an F-18 pilot in the Marine Corps, and I’m telling you, I’ve done many intercepts, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Hulsey is recorded saying.
According to Hansen, the UFO activity was “seen by upwards of 15 different commercial flights. And at least six pilots are willing to go on record with their names and everything, if asked to do so, by any investigative agencies.”
Later in August, Chris Van Voorhis, a 63-year-old veteran pilot observed three to five bright objects flying in a circular motion. He was flying over the Pacific when he watched, for hours, what he described as lights running on a circular “racetrack.”
Van Voorhis claimed the lights may have been in low-orbit space. But it couldn’t have been Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites since they appeared to be moving in different directions.
Other airlines were said to have radioed in to ask if anyone else saw the flying objects that day.
UFO/UAP task forces stay busy
In 2021, the Department of Defense launched a taskforce to identify and study an estimated 140 sky events. It was primarily focused on military sightings of UAPs and UFOs. Washington insiders were puzzled by the growing number of UFO sightings. And believe that they could be a threat to national security.
The initial UFO task force released a report to Congress. And announced the formation of The Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group.
The report confirmed that there had been several unexplained aerial phenomena sightings by the military. And some of the sky events were still unexplained.
NASA is now involved in studying the spike in the number of UFO sightings. And last week another team of space scientists began a study.
Former U.S. Navy pilot Ryan Graves gave a detailed description of regular encounters that flight teams had with a black box UFO they were seeing “every day.”
Appearing on the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Graves spoke about what a pilot who saw the unidentified object saw. As the podcast began, he highlighted his credentials and history with the Navy, saying he studied mechanical and aerospace engineering. After graduating from college, he went on to fly F-18 jets for the Navy.
He said that multiple pilots repeatedly witnessed a strange UFO phenomenon on their equipment, as well as with their own eyes, starting in late 2013. He said the pilots were seeing these objects by eye and also on their radar after receiving upgrades to their aircraft. The objects were always up there, every day, as they conducted training exercises.
In June, NASA announced that it was commissioning a study team to examine what it called “observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena” from a scientific perspective, starting in the fall. A report is expected by the spring of 2023.
On his podcast, Rogan asked Graves: “You guys go from not having any idea that these things are out there to an upgraded radar system, to seeing them every day? What is the thought, how are you feeling? Is there an evolution of the thought pattern, of how you are addressing these things?
“Initially you are thinking they are [radar] errors. When do you start getting a thought of ‘What the f*** is this thing?'” Rogan said.
Graves replied that questions arose about what these UFOs were after a pilot first saw one of them.
“There were two aircrafts from my squadron, and they took off in a flight of two,” he said. “They are essentially flying in a formation like [one diagonally in front of the other]. As they hit the area, one of these objects went right between their aircraft.
Graves continued: “The lead pilot saw the object. The [second pilot] did not, which is not surprising because you are usually very focused on flying formation. The lead really has leeway to look around. He saw it and he immediately came back.”
Detailing what the pilot saw, Graves said: “He came back and said, ‘Hey, I almost hit one of those damn things.’ We all knew what he was referring to even though we didn’t necessarily have a name for it, just because we were seeing them so much.
“He described it. He said it was a black or dark gray cube and that cube was inside of a clear translucent sphere. Essentially, the corners or the apex of that cube, as best as he could tell, were touching the inside of that sphere.”
Graves admitted that the mystery surrounding the UFOs did not mean that aliens, or something supernatural, were involved.
“The high-probability answer was this was some type of classified program, of our own making, that had started operating in an area they were not supposed to, for whatever reason,” Graves said.
He continued: “That was kind of our assumption. We submitted a safety report because of that near midair [collision], a haz rep, a hazard report. This is essentially a notice that goes out to the whole fleet that says this is a potential hazard that can cause a loss of an aircraft.
“It was due to us almost hitting an unknown object of unknown origin, and that is how it continued for a while. There were a number of Haz reports about that,” Graves said.
Newsweek has contacted the U.S. Navy for comment. The top image is real and from a Texas UFO encounter.
December 26, 2003 the dispatcher for the Sicamous, British Columbia RCMP detachment took a call from an excited woman who requested the RCMP come to her home and look into the unusual sights that had been taking place over a period of time. Whilst making the report she felt that she wasn’t being taken seriously … and that maybe they thought her to be a little crazy…however, when an hour passed and the RCMP officer arrived in her yard it was a different story. As soon as he saw the object he stood and looked in amazement. He had no idea what it was. I was told that the officer left the family’s home and drove towards the mountain where the object was sitting to get a closer and better look. (HBCC UFO Note: So far, I have left two messages with the Sicamous RCMP detachment to have the constable call me back using my toll free number and as of yet he has not returned my call.
I am not giving up on him, and I will keep trying until I get a hold of him even if it means becoming a pest). “An important part to this case is that excellent video footage has been shot by the family”. As the tape is rolling you can hear the children in the background commenting on how quickly the object was moving all over the sky. It appears to be moving rather quickly, zig zagging, etc.. I asked the witness about how she was holding the camera, knowing that any slight movement while video taping can make “something” appear to move. In the footage it shows the object moving erratically around the sky. The other members of her family who stood watching this event unfold saw the very same thing with the naked eye, something flying all around the sky. The witness said these objects (plural as there are more than one at different times) were also seen by her husband whilst he was up in the mountains which is around their area.
He described one of the objects as being as big as a house and covered in lights. At the time, he was waiting for his daughter and her cousin to return with the snowmobile. He watched the object with his naked eye and estimated it to be approximately a mile away from his location. He was so excited and frightened at what he saw whilst he waited… that he immediately drove back home, ran into the house and told his wife of his adventure. She thought he had been drinking as he was acting strange and obviously was very scared. Knowing they had to go back out to that location where the object was seen because they had to pick up the kids, the gentleman said he was not going back out there alone! The husband’s sighting took place before December 26, 2003, and what the family caught on tape on December 26, 2003 was the same object. It had returned. They also saw the object through their binoculars and described it as being in the shape of an acorn or a diamond.
It was an extraordinary sighting because not only did the object shine brightly and move around erratically … but at one point when it was stationary … it shot out a large red fireball, then six bright orange lights appeared in the sky around it. Each of the orange lights had another two white lights on them. These white lights shot a beam of light towards the ground. Approximately half an hour later four more of the large acorn/diamond shaped objects showed up and sat either stationary or moved around the sky. The witnesses said the objects appeared to have hundreds of lights on each of them. These folks have recently moved into this home, but the previous owners said they used to watch in the daylight hours … on many occasions silver disk shaped objects flying over and around the mountains behind the house. This case is under investigation, and this is only raw data at present. Video tape is currently being examined. A foot note to this. The lady who reported the sighting and who rang the RCMP told me that when the constable arrived and saw the object .. he commented to her that he knew of nothing that moved that quickly … nor of anything that could stop like it did on a dime.
This story proved interesting enough that the television station (CHBC TV out of Kelowna, British Columbia) sent a news crew to interview the family and to get a copy of the footage. CHBC TV is a part of the Global TV network which is one of Canada’s giants in the media business. The story ended up airing not just on that station but aired all over British Columbia on Global BCTV. They ran the story at least three times as a part of their news. Once at 6:00 p.m. Friday night, again at 11:00 p.m. and again on the Saturday morning news. As I was the investigator on the case, they also called me a number of times and interviewed me about the story. The news gave this story a good length of time to play out on TV which was really great to see. Something else of interest prior to these sightings but in the same area was when an RCMP officer who was out on his usual rounds in his patrol car … noticed an object in the sky and was instantly hit with a beam of light from it. After his shift was over and upon his return to his detachment, he informed his co-workers of what he had seen. They thought he was seeing things. Now perhaps they have a different interpretation of the event. On a separate note, sightings are still coming in. Reports from Nova Scotia back from the 1970s, Vernon, Kelowna, Kitimat, Terrace, Comox, British Columbia and from Alberta. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
One of the most powerful U.S. senators in modern history actually eye-witnessed two UFOs while on a fact-finding trip through Russia in 1955, and the U.S. government kept the sightings a secret for more than three decades.
The incredible encounter is detailed in 12 TOP SECRET CIA, FBI, and Air Force reports-and declassified in 1985.
Those startling reports reveal that Senator Richard B. Russell, Jr. (D-GA), then chairman of the Armed Services Committee-was on a Soviet train when he spotted a disc-shaped craft taking off near the tracks.
He hurriedly called his military aide and interpreter to the window and they saw the UFO, plus another one that appeared a minute later. The astonished trio reported the sightings to the U.S. Air Force as soon as they were out of Russia.
“The three observers were firmly convinced that they saw a genuine flying disc,” says an Air Force Intelligence report, dated October 14, 1955, and classified TOP SECRET at the time.
Senator Russell served 38 years in the Senate. He was its senior, and one of the most influential senators at the time of his death in 1971. He was chairman of the Armed Services Committee from 1951 to 1969, and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1952.
The mind-boggling documents detailing his UFO encounter were made available by the Fund for UFO Research and its chaiman, Dr. Bruce Maccabee. Several key documents were obtained by the group through the Freedom of Information Act.
“These long secret documents are of major importance because they show for the first time that one of the most powerful U.S. Senators witnessed and reported a UFO,” said Dr. Maccabee.
The Air Force Intelligence report says Russell and his two traveling companions spotted the UFOs on October 4, 1955, while traveling by rail across Russia’s Transcaucasus region.
“One disc ascended almost vertically, at a relatively slow speed, with its outer surface revolving slowly to the right, to an altitude of about 6000 feet, where its speed then increased sharply as it headed north,” the report states.
“The second flying disc was seen performing the same actions about one minute later. The take-off area was about 1-2 miles south of the rail line.
” Russell “saw the first flying disc ascend and pass over the train,” and went “rushing in to get Mr Efron (Ruben Efron, his interpreter) and Col. Hathaway (Col. E. U. Hathaway, his aide) to see it,” the report said.
“Col. Hathaway stated that he got to the window with the Senator in time to see the first (UFO), while Mr. Efron said that he got only a short glimpse of the first. However, all three saw the second disc and all agreed that they saw the same round, disc-shaped craftas the first.”
The Air Force report was written by Lieut. Col. Thomas Ryan, who interviewed Senator Russell’s companions in Prague, Czechoslovakia, on October 13, after they arrived there from Russia shortly after the sighting.
In his report, Col. Ryan called the sightings “an eyewitness account of the ascent and flight of an unconventional craft by three highly reliable United States observers. He added that Col. Hathaway led off his account of the sightings by saying: “I doubt if your going to believe this, but we all saw it.” Senator Russell was the first to see this flying disc we’ve been told for years that there isn’t such a thing, but all of us saw it.”
CIA documents show that the agency later interviewed the three eyewitnesses in the Russell party and also a fourth person, unidentified in the reports, who had seen the UFOs. An eyewitness, whose name was blacked out on the CIA report prior to its declassification, said one of the UFOs “had a slight dome on top” and also a “white light on top.” The edge of the disc was glowing pinkish-white, he added. The UFO rose “vertically with the glow moving slowly around the perimeter in a clockwise direction, giving the appearance of a pinwheel.”
Interpreter Ruben Efron told the CIA that visibility was excellent. As one UFO approached the train, he said, “the object gave the impression of gliding. No noise was heard and no exhaust was heard, and no exhaust glow or trail was seen by me.”
After the encounter, Senator Russell told the men with him:
“We saw a flying disc. I wanted you boys to see it so that I would have witnesses,” according to the CIA documents.”
And an FBI memo, dated November 4, 1955, also discusses the sighting and admitted Col. Hathaway’s testimony “would support existence of a flying disc.”
Dr. Maccabee, of the Fund for UFO Research, believes that Senator Russell and his group never publicly revealed their incredible sightings “because they were no doubt advised not to talk. These documents provide startling new evidence that UFOs exist.”
Mr. Tom Towers, in his January 20, 1957, column, ‘Aviation News,’ for the Los Angeles, CA, Examiner, printed the contents of a letter from Senator Russell, which was in response to a request for information about the sightings in Russia.
Mr. Towers had originally contacted Senator Russell’s office by letter with the request that he be given permission to “break” the story.
The Senator wrote:
“Permit me to acknowledge your letters relative to reports that have come to you regarding aerial objects seen in Europe last year. I received your letter, but I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies of the government, and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time. I regret very much that I am unable to be of assistance to you.” The letter was dated 17 January, 1956. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I was sky watching when I heard a propeller plane above me crossing the sky. I looked up and immediately zoomed in upon it with my Sony HX-300 camera. I then swiftly started to take several bursts of photographs as the plane flew further away, when suddenly a bright white oval shaped plasma object seemingly just appeared from out of nowhere and flew by underneath the plane while a smaller plasma sphere then just suddenly appeared and flew up right beside the plane’s wing. I managed to photograph the two glowing plasma objects capturing them within ten photographs before they had flown off, and totally disappeared from view. I continued to watch the plane as it flew on with no further incident. Over the years I have seen and photographed many of these glowing plasma objects near aircraft, and I find it very intriguing that they seem to be non-physical in nature, unlike the other structured mechanical craft that I regularly observe around this area. There must be an explanation as to why there are so many different types of this phenomena. The photographs were taken at 11:09 AM on the 11th of July 2022, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

On April 25, 2013, at about 9:20 pm local time, and unknown object at low altitude flew directly across the Raffael Hernandez airport runway at Aquadilla, Puerto Rico, causing a delayed departure of a commercial aircraft.
There was no squawking transponder signal to alert the aircraft tower, nor was there any communication with the tower to prevent a dangerous situation with departing or arriving aircraft.
Fortunately, an airborne U.S. Customs and Border Protection aircraft captured the object on infrared video. An original copy of a thermal video was obtained from an official source on October 20, of the same year.
There was no classified information found in the report. The 3-minute video detailed the flight of the unknown object that crossed twice into northwestern Puerto Rico from the Atlantic Ocean and returned into the ocean into which it submerged. Thanks to http://www.ufocasebook.com
While driving east on Newman Springs Road (rte 520) in Lincroft, NJ in front of the main entrance to Brookdale Community College, I observed a cluster of relatively fast moving, multi-colored blinking lights (approximately 6 or 7). The colors of the flashing lights were red, white, yellow, green, blue and perhaps silver. One or two of the light’s colors were repeated. I observed this cluster to the east of my position and heading on a southerly course taking them to the general area of NWS Earle (Naval weapon Station – Ammunition Depot) located in Colts Neck, NJ.
The altitude to the best of my estimation was between 1000′ and perhaps 2500′ (hard to estimate because it was dark out and the object(s) were moving at a relatively high rate of speed. I would have to estimate the speed to be perhaps 150-200mph depending on altitude and distance. Interestingly, I believe that the object may have been following Normandy Road that runs from the Naval pier located in the Leonardo section of Middletown Twp. on a somewhat meandering course to the south. This road is approximately 13.2 miles long and is used by the US Navy to transport ammunition to and from Naval ships that tie up to the pier. The area has also been a bit of a hotbed of UFO related activities over the years. These lights were in a strange configuration that appeared to be a randomized cluster of independently blinking, multicolored lights. These lights did not have the aspect of being navigational lights and the apparent object’s rate of speed precluded a cluster of balloons with lights attached. Being that I was driving, I could not follow this object on its course (no roads easily accessible in such a short period of time) so after about 1 minute they disappeared from my view to the south (I.e., towards Colts Neck, NJ and Naval Weapon Station Earle) NOTE: The above image is real but from another UFO case file.
This case is under investigation by Field Investigator Howard Levy of MUFON New Jersey.
