My mother and I were making a cake and were driving into town to get eggs, it’s a 15-20 minute drive into town. We were halfway there when we noticed a bright orb of light fall from the sky from 200-300 mph. We thought it was a meteor at first, but soon after, the orb of light instantly hovered and started flying above the town of Alamosa. The orb of light flew from one side of the town to the other in an ‘S’ shape formation. We were getting closer to the town and the orb of light was getting closer to our vehicle, we could see different colored lights on the craft beyond this point and still thought it could be a drone of some kind or something. I tried taking a video of the orb flying above the town but the quality of the camera was bad and I put the phone away. Soon after this happened, were were coming to a bridge just outside of town and couldn’t see the orb anymore due to the trees. We got on the bridge and I saw the craft coming straight towards us, so I stuck my head out of the window. I first noticed the lights and shape of the craft, it was a triangle with three lights, each on the tips. The light on the tip of the triangle was white, and on the base, one of them was teal, and the other was red. I tried concentrating on the UFO itself, at one point I feel like I saw the streetlights reflection but it looked black for the most part. Also, as it was coming towards us, it was flying with the flat side first. It then turned away from the bridge and turned towards the town again, I think it flew forward with the tip of the triangle. I could still see it through the trees, it was keeping up with our speed about a block away. I was distraught about what had happened and was not paying attention to my surroundings after this. I still feel guilty for not being able to get a video or an image of the event, but feel great to be able to share it with you all. And Sorry for not reporting my sighting sooner, I did not think I would be able to. I will try to find the video I took of the orb but I can’t promise that I will find it. I have gotten requests for drawings of the event and honestly, I need to put more time into doing that, because I know I can I just haven’t gotten into it. Thank you again, NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At night driving with my dad and saw a UFO in the distance which I assumed at the time could only have been a plane. Within a second it was hovering in front of our car. It must have only been about 10 feet above us and was tilted looking at us in the front seat of the car. As we drove it followed us up the road as if it were flying backwards to observe us. The UFO itself was funnily enough your cliche UFO object. Saucer shaped and no wider than about 5 meters across. It had a chrome surface and blinding lights sequential going around the front of it. I remember saying to my dad ‘Dad dad look look at this oh my God’ and all he was doing was watching the road as the lights were so blinding in his eyes. My dad’s account of it was just blinding lights- so much so that he said he didn’t see the UFO due to being worried we were off the side of the road and into the deep gully . It must’ve followed us up the road for about 20 second before it disappeared (and when I say disappeared, I mean I didn’t see it move, it just all of a sudden wasn’t there). I then saw it flying over the hill adjacent to the road we were on about 200m away. I’ve never had anywhere to report this before and it’s probably no longer useful considering it was 1994. No internet and no mobile phones so working out where to report this was a mystery! I did however note it in my diary and make a sketch (I was 14 at the time), however when I’ve rifled through every page of that diary I can’t find the page at all, it’s just simply disappeared.

I was driving home by myself from a friend’s house on the night of April 26th 2012 around 11:00pm. It was a clear night, I had my driver’s seat window down and usually the radio on low volume and had cruise control on 50mph-per usual. I had to drive past the Piedmont Airport in Burlington NC on the stretch of highway I was on to reach the interstate. All and all, a 12 minute ride home. Halfway through my ride home as I was looking out of the windshield and I was on a 2-lane highway with trees running both sides of the road about 20-30 feet off the ditches and trees were (best guess) 100-150 feet in the air. I then noticed something coming into my view to my right over the tree line, almost directly above me towards the top of my windshield. It was dark and big (maybe 100-150 feet wide, couldn’t quite see the top half of the ufo)…and the ufo was slowing spinning clock-wise at a relatively slow speed while moving perpendicular to my car. I noticed a few blinking off-white lights on the ufo equator. It also had a small light underneath and center of the ufo that slightly shined and reflected the bottom of the ufo. Didn’t notice any doors or windows. Was a matt-black color as the light shined dimly on it. It moved to my left at a very slow speed. This all took maybe 6-7 seconds since I first saw the big ufo to me then slowing my car down very quickly while keeping an eye on it the entire time. As my car was almost stopped, still moving some, I opened my driver side door to extend my head out of the frame of the door to see the object better. The second I laid my eyes on it with my head out of my car window. It stopped moving and rotating at the same time and ascended in a blink of an eye onto the sky. This entire experience lasted no more than 10 seconds. This ufo made no sounds, didn’t blow the trees or grass while crossing over the road. No exhaust or sonic boom- moving upwards so fast I can’t even describe it. It didn’t ascend straight up it was more like 75-85 degrees upward. After it exited my view. I was at a stop by then and I looked all around as I walked and leaned against my car to see if anyone was on the road or passing by to maybe stop them, but at the same time my heart was pounding in my chest so I sat there in my car off the road slightly until I calmed down and finished my ride home. I called my friend whose house I was leaving a few moments earlier to tell him. I think he believed me but probably not. I’ve only mentioned this story to maybe 5 people since 2012 and it’s May 27th of 2021 now. My friend reminded me of this story recently so I wanted to explain my story to other people that maybe saw the same thing near the same time that night. I haven’t seen anything since and I have always been 50/50 on this stuff. I would testify my story under oath in a court if I had to. I just wanted to share what I saw. If my sighting had lasted longer or I wasn’t driving at the time I would have pulled my cellphone out of my pocket to record what happened, even if it was a bad result or blurry or too dark. But the entire encounter with the ufo was around 8-10 seconds. I was in awe for about 7 of those seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

I first heard about the sighting about two o’clock on the morning of August 11,1953, when Max Futch called me from ATIC. A few minutes before, a wire had come in carrying a priority just under that reserved for flashing the word the U.S. has been attacked. Max had been called over to ATIC by the OD to see the report, and he thought that I should see it. I was a little hesitant to get dressed and go out to the base, so I asked Max what he thought about the report. His classic answer will go down in UFO history, “Captain,” Max said in his slow, pure Louisiana drawl, “you know that for a year I’ve read every flying saucer report that’s come in and that I never really believed in the things.” Then he hesitated and added, so fast that I could hardly understand him but you should read this wire.” The speed with which he uttered this last statement was in itself enough to convince me. When Max talked fast, something was important.
A half hour later I was at ATIC – just in time to get a call from the Pentagon. Someone else had gotten out of bed to read his copy of the wire.
I used the emergency orders that I always kept in my desk and caught the first airliner out of Dayton to Rapid City, South Dakota. I didn’t call the 4602nd because I wanted to investigate this one personally. I talked to everyone involved in the incident and pieced together an amazing story.
Shortly after dark on the night of twelfth, the Air Defense Command radar stationat Ellsworth AFB, just east of Rapid City, had received a call from the local Ground Observer Corps filter center. A lady spotter at Black Hawk, about 10 miles west of Ellsworth, had reported an extremely bright light low on the horizon, off to the northeast. The radar had been scanning an area to the west, working a jet fighter in some practice patrols, but when they got the report they moved the sector scan to the northeast quadrant There was a target exactly where the lady repored the light to be. The warrant officer who was the duty controller for the night, told me that he’d studied the target for several minutes. He knew how weather could affect radar but this target was well defined, solid, and bnght.” It seemed to be moving, but very slowly. He called for an altitude reading, and the man on the height-finding radar checked his scope. He also had the target – it was at 16.000 feet.
The warrant officer picked up the phone and asked the filter center to connect him with the spotter. They did, and the two people compared notes on the UFO’s position for several minutes. But right in the middle of a sentence the lady suddenly stopped and excitedly said, “It’s starting to move – it’s moving southwest toward Rapid.”
The controller looked down at his scope and the target was beginning to pick up speed and move southwest. He yelled at two of his men to run outside and take a look. In a second or two one of them shouted back that they could both see a large bluish-white light moving toward Rapid City. The controller looked down at his scope, the target was moving toward Rapid City. As all three parties watched the light and kept up a steady cross conversation of the description, the UFO swiftly made a wide sweep around Rapid City and returned to its original position in the sky.
A master sergeant who had seen and heard the happenings told me that in all his years of duty – combat radar operations in both Europe and Korea – he’d never been so completely awedby anything. When the warrant officer had yelled down at him and asked him what he thought they should do, he’d just stood there. “After all,” he told me, “what in hell couldf we do – they’re bigger than all of us.”
But the warrant officer did do something. He called to the F-84 pilot he had on combat air patrol west of the base and told him to get ready for an intercept. He brought the pilot around south of the base and gave him a course correction that would take him right into the light. which was still at 16.000 feet. By this time the pilot had it spotted. He made the turn, and when he closed to within about 3 miles of the target, it began to move. The controller saw it begin to move, the spotter saw it begin to move and the pilot saw it begin to move – all at the same time there was now no doubt that all of them were watching the same object.
Once it began to move, the UFO picked up speed fast and started to climb, heading north, but the F-84 was right on its tail. The pilot would notice that the light was getting brighter,and he’d call the controller to tell him about it. But the controller’s answer would always be the same, “Roger, we can see it on the scope.”
There was always a limit as to how near the jet could get, however. The controller told me that it was just as if the UFO had some kind of an automatic warning radar linked to its power supply. When something got too close to it, it would automatically pick up speed and pull away. The separation distance always remained about 3 miles.
The chase continued on north out of sight of the lights of Rapid Cty and the base – into some very black night.
When the UFO and the F-84 got about 120 miles to the north, the pilot checked his fuel; he had to come back. And when I talked to him, be said he was damn glad that he was running out of fuel because being out over some mighty desolate country alone with a UFO can cause some worry.
Both the UFO and the F-84 had gone off the scope, but in a few minutes the jet was back on, heading for home. Then 10 or 15 miles behind it was the UFO target also coming back.
While the UFO and the F-84 were returning to the base – the F-84 was planning to land – the controller received a call from the jet interceptor squadron on the base. The alert pilots at the squadron had heard the conversations on their radio and didn’t believe it. “Who’s nuts up there?” was the comment that passed over the wire from the pilots to the radar people. There was an F-84 on the line ready to scramble, the man on the phone said, and one of the pilots, a World War II and Korean veteran, wanted to go up and see a flying saucer. The controller said, “OK, go.”
In a minute or two the F-84 was airborne and the controller was working him toward the light. The pilot saw it right away and closed in. Again the light began to clirnb out, this time more toward the northeast. The pilot also began to climb, and before long the light, which at first had been about 30 degrees above his horizontal line of sight, was now below him. He nosed the ’84 down to pick up speed, but it was the same old story – as soon as he’d get within 3 miles of the UFO, it would put on a burst of speed and stay out ahead.
Even though the pilot could see the light and hear the ground controller telling him that he was above it, and alternately gaining on it or dropping back, he still couldn’t believe it – there must be a simple explanation He turned off all of his lights – it wasn’t a reflection from any of the airplane’s lights because there it was. A reflection from a ground light, maybe. He rolled the airplane – the position of the light didn’t change. A star – he picked out three bright stars near the light and watched carefully. The UFO moved in relation to the three stars. Well, he thought to himself, if it’s a real object out there, my radar should pick it up too; so he flipped on his radar-ranging gunsight. In a few seconds the red light on his sight blinked on – something real and solid was in front of him. Then he was scared. When I talked to him, he readily admitted that he’d been scared. He’d met MD 109’s, FW 190’s and ME 262’s over Germany and he’d met MIG-15’s over Korea but the large, bright, bluish-white light had scared – he asked the controller if he could break off the intercept
This time the light didn’t corne back.
What he UFO went off the scope it was headed toward Fargo, North Dakota, so the controller called the Fargo filter center. “Had they had any reports of unidentified lights?” he asked. They hadn’t. But in a few minutes a call came back. Spotter posts on a southwest- northeast line a few miles west of Fargo had reported a fast-moving, bright bluish-white light. This was an unknown – the best.. The sighting was thoroughly investigated, and I could devote pages of detail on how we looked into every facet of the incident; but it will suffice to say that in every facet we looked into we saw nothing. Nothing but a big question mark asking what was it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

I saw an alien hitch a ride on the Space Shuttle,’ says NASA veteran
A veteran NASA employee says he saw a nine-foot-tall alien hitch a ride on the space shuttle – and watched the event when it thought no one was looking. UFO sites have seized on this as CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE that there is a vast, global conspiracy where our leaders are in league with aliens.
Others are less sure.
Clark C. McClelland makes the claim in a video recently unearthed by paranormal news site Inquisitr. He claims to have worked at NASA for 35 years, including work on the Apollo missions – and in his favour, no one has stepped forward to say he didn’t.
There’s also a picture of him actually ON the Space Shuttle, which is conclusive enough for the UFO sites. McClelland says he was monitoring a Space Shuttle mission from Kennedy Space Centre when he saw something he wasn’t meant to – namely a gangly, slender alien chatting away with two astronauts in the Space Shuttle’s payload bay. He also saw an alien ship ‘parked’ nearby.
Disclaimer: many people think McLelland is nuts.
Second disclaimer: UFO fans believe, of course, that this first disclaimer is disinformation, spread by the Men in Black.
McLelland says, ‘I know an ET and Alien craft when I see them. ‘Aliens are here on Earth, they walk among us. They may have been implanted into our various Earth governments. His website, entitled Stargate Chronicles, is, shall we say, an interesting read. The video below has garnered over 324 thousand views. Check it out.
These photos are from my fathers journals and I thought I would send them to you. Please feel free to use them, I hope you find them very interesting? I certainly do.
Firstly let me say that my father had no connection, involvement or anything to do with these photos or what apparently went on to cause such freakish looking entities.
My father and his team had many, many connections and sources of information, my father explained it like their connections been very similar to the deep throat character in the TV show the X files, only he and his team knew lots of deep throats.
If anything happened that was connected to UFOS, aliens, the paranormal or anything considered unexplained or just plain weird, my dad and his team certainly heard about it one way or another.
One day he and his team had a meeting with a trusted contact of theirs. Basically they were given these photographs and told that a team of top secret US government scientists had conducted strange and bizarre tests and experiments on animals.
Apparently this was conducted at a top secret government ranch in the early 1970’s. My dad was told that it basically involved extraterrestrials and UFOS, the scientists and the US military to some degree.
They were told it was some strange and bizarre experimental deep black project that involved genetics, experimental extraterrestrial DNA, extraterrestrial genes, animal genes, animal DNA, extraterrestrial chromosomes, cells, embryos, chemicals, human and animal diseases, extraterrestrial/animal/human viruses and computers and it was a bunch of top secret scientists playing god and it was basically a deep black program that went completely wrong and it was abandoned several years after it first started.
My dad and his team were given the photos and the basic facts and simply told never to mention it, so they didn’t, they were also told that several people who were involved in the program died from “unknown complications”.
I spoke to my dad about this when he was alive and he said it was a very bizarre case, he and his team weren’t even sure what to make of it, they weren’t even sure whether it was real or fake? But like my dad said, they are genuine and real 35mm photos and the monstrosities that they show sure look very real and biologic and that would be extremely difficult to fake back in the early 1970’s.
Plus he said that they rarely got bogus information. He told me he had the photos looked at and examined by a photo expert and the guy said that the photos are real and do show actual objects that haven’t been superimposed, he added that everything looks completely right and genuine, including perspective, lighting and shadows.
Dad said all he can say is that whatever went on and what the photos show is simply mind boggling and completely unethical. The contact told them that the entities only lived for a very short period of time and then died, after which time they were incinerated.
I asked my dad what he genuinely thought about the photos and what he was told? He just said that some things are just best left alone, however, he and his team did believe that whatever these photos show, it is certainly possible that what went on at that top secret US government ranch back in the early 1970’s is in some way connected to the animal mutilation phenomenon, a world wide unexplained phenomenon for which no one has ever been caught for, or arrested or charged with and sadly still continues to this day.
I have to say they are probably among the weirdest photos I have ever seen, very strange and very bizarre, shocking and upsetting and that’s how my dad and his team felt too.
There isn’t really anything else I can add to what I have already mentioned above, as my dad just did what he was told and simply filed the photos away and just forgot about it and never once pursued it or looked into it any any further. My dad said that it wouldn’t surprise him if what they were told is true, as he heard and seen many strange things himself in his career.
Anyway I found an envelope with 4 more photos inside, on the front of the envelope was written in black ink VTHTJD-Ranch 2000, I have no idea what that could mean?
Kelly Johnson was known as one of the world’s leading aircraft designers. He was in charge of designing the U-2 spy plane for the CIA.
On December 16, 1953, a Lockhead WV2 aircraft was being flown by one of Johnson’s test crews over Long Beach California, at the same time that Johnson and his wife were on the ground in Agoura, California.
Johnson, his wife, and the flight crew all spotted a UFO at almost the same time. Because the plane and Johnson’s location were both known, the location of the unknown object could be triangulated exactly.
The object spotted by the observers was a 200 foot long, black craft, similar to the military’s “Flying Wing.” The UFO was seen for 6-7 minutes as it hovered over the Santa Barbara Channel.
The W-2B decided to get a closer look, and proceeded toward the UFO, which was about 15,000 feet altitude. All the while, Johnson was observing the UFO with his binoculars.
He, along with the crew in flight, saw the UFO take off at a great speed. It headed out over the Pacific. It reached 90 miles altitude as it disappeared from view.
Later, in Johnson’s official report, he stated: “I am now more convinced than ever, that such devices exist, and I have some highly technical converts in this belief.”
After looking over the case, the US Air Force concluded that Johnson, his wife, and the airplane crew had seen a lenticular cloud.
Although the government thought that Johnson could not tell the difference between a cloud and a structured, flying object, they continued to employ him for many years to come, designing some of the most secretive, cutting-edge planes of his era. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On May 1, 2021, my friend and I were riding our motorcycles South East along Route 79 toward Warner Springs. This is a rural, desert area and we had not seen any other traffic or vehicles in the area for approximately the prior 5-6 miles, which would have been at the junction of Route 371. At 11:30 am we came over a small hill. When we reached the top we both noticed a missle-shaped object, approximately 90′ off the right side of the road. I looked to my friend beside me and asked, “do you see this?” He replied, “Yes, I do!” At that point, it was hovering approximately 6′ above the surface when we first saw it. At this same elevation, it then moved forward slowly about 4-6′, then the tail-end dipped downward, the nose came up slightly and the object ascended in this path for only a few seconds, before it pointed its nose straight up, accelerated upward and was out of sight within 10 seconds. It was a perfectly clear day with blue skies and no obstructions. This object vanished instantly before our very own eyes. There was no sound, no combustion, no dust, no lights, no disturbance of any kind. Once it was gone, there was no visible evidence it had been there. The two of us were amazed by what we had seen and the fact that we could no longer see it. It was gone within seconds, even though it was approximatly a 25′ long object. The object was the shape of a a missle or a bullet with two very small fins (approx 2-3′ high) on its rear top side. Otherwise, it was a solid looking dull grey color (not shiny, not reflective). We didn’t notice or see anything resembling windows, doors, or other openings. We discussed it briefly and continued on our way. 3 days later, I, Ron, reported the sighting to Mufon.

JUNE 29, 2016…………………..FLIGHT…1 HOUR FROM AUSTRALIA
I was on an airplane flight from USA to Melbourne, Australia. The sun was rising behind us, and it’s the early morning hours. About an hour away from Australia, I’m looking out of the window, and off in the distance, I see a metallic glint. Curious as to what it could be so far up in the sky, I keep watching. At this point in time, the object appeared to be parallel to the plane and going slower than the plane or perhaps stationary. As I’m watching, it sharply turns towards the plane and speeds up. I’m panicked because I think that it’s a missile or something that’s going to hit the plane. It appeared to be heading directly towards me. As it gets closer, I see that it’s going to go underneath the plane and not on a collision course. After the panic of potentially dying wears off, I’m oddly calm and entranced. The object is metallic, silvery with no apparent windows, and quite a bit larger than I had thought. It’s cigar or oval-shaped, with no wings or tail. It passes underneath the plane, right below my window. It was strange in that it seemed to know that I had noticed it. Afterward, I’m relieved and in a haze about what had happened. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was enjoying the last Ray’s if sun on my deck when I noticed a stationary object above a neighbor’s house 1 block from me. With the sun setting behind me, I was blinded by the reflective surface of the object in front of my line of view. Noticing that it stayed perfectly still while leaves on trees continued to move threw me off. I walked to the other end of my deck and starred harder at it and remember saying out loud “what are you?” Under my breath and it began to shift slightly and then disappeared. Lasted no more than 8 to 10 min. Cars drove past and I felt like I was the ONLY one who could see it. Was bizarre and I realized no one typically looks up while driving. It was no bigger than a standard medium size beach ball that was slightly flattened on the bottom. Very much like what a water balloon would look like laying on a flat surface. This was NO drone…nor did it hover like one. I had a very odd sensation it was watching me only after I got up to focus on it. If I would’ve stayed like a statue and still it might’ve passed over. That was my mistake. Shortly after this, I started having odd dreams about traveling outside my body and connecting with a living presence I failed to identify as Human. It wanted me to bind myself to it by manipulating dreams and my Hope’s as bait. Odd I know but quite real. I now suffer from extraordinary migraines and sensitivity to light ever since that day. I have moved from this area since then and continue to suffer involuntary out of body experiences both waking and asleep. Bruises and Mark’s on my body show with no knowledge of why. I’m am currently working on mental blocks to protect myself. Do not provoke these things… not worth the aftermath of physical trauma and a secret you can not share for fear of being seen as nuts. I’ve been too afraid to speak due to not wanting to set myself back with conditioning my mind and thought patterns. Due to evidence of similar persons reporting to MUFON, I feel I can safely step forward to share my experience and warning to anyone wishing to live a blissfully ignorant life. Do not engage and do not assume your thoughts are safe because they are very exposed. Guard your intentions and motives. NOTE: The above image is from another Orb case file.
The former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs, says there is “compelling” evidence the flying objects exist and have been seen over U.S. airspace.
Luis Elizondo made the comments in a CBS interview aired on Sunday, weeks ahead of a government report on UFOs being released. After being asked by Bill Whittaker on CBS’s 60 Minutes whether UFOs—or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs)—were real, Elizondo said: “Bill, I think we’re beyond that already. The gov has already stated for the record that they’re real. I’m not telling you that, the United States government is telling you that.”
UFOs, long dismissed and relegated to movies and science fiction, have begun to shed the farce label in recent years after the release of footage of high-profile U.S. military encounters with aircraft of unknown origin.
In June 2020, tucked into the 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) added language requesting that the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense create a report with “a detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence reporting.” Two months later, the Pentagon followed suit with the new, more serious approach, creating a task force to investigate the encounters by U.S. military aircraft. The report is due to be released by next month.
In the Sunday CBS interview, Whittaker tells Elizondo that UFOs being real sounds “nutty, wacky.”
“Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities?” Elizondo said.
“Imagine a technology that can do 6-to-700 g-forces, that can fly at 13,000 miles an hour, that can evade radar and that can fly through air and water and possibly space. And oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet still can defy the natural effects of Earth’s gravity. That’s precisely what we’re seeing.
Asked by Whittaker what he says to skeptics, Elizondo said: “In some cases there are simple explanations for what people are witnessing. But there are some that, that are not. We’re not just simply jumping to a conclusion that’s saying, ‘Oh, that’s a UAP out there.'”
“We’re going through our due diligence. Is it some sort of new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed? Is it some sort of high-altitude balloon that’s conducting reconnaissance? Ultimately when you have exhausted all those what-ifs and you’re still left with the fact that this is in our airspace and it’s real, that’s when it becomes compelling, and that’s when it becomes problematic,” he added.
The former official spent two decades running military intelligence operations in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo Bay. In 2010, he took over the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. But many in the Pentagon dismissed Elizondo’s findings, and AATIP was dropped in 2012.
Elizondo said he and a few others continued to keep investigating independently.
Christopher Mellon, the former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence for presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, grew concerned that nothing was being done about UAPs. Mellon then helped Elizondo elevate the issue in the department and actually get it to the Secretary of Defense by leaking three Navy videos appearing to show UFOs to the New York Times, thrusting UFOs back into the limelight.
In August 2020, the funding came back and AATTP was re-established—now under the banner of the UAP task force—and service members now are encouraged to report strange encounters.
Several navy pilots have reported sightings of suspicious objects that defied the laws of physics on some of their missions.
Former Navy pilot Lieutenant Ryan Graves told CBS his F/A-18F squadron began seeing UAPs hovering over restricted airspace southeast of Virginia Beach in 2014.
He says his pilots see them off the Atlantic Coast all the time. “Every day. Every day for at least a couple years,” he said.
The program played a video of one being spotted by Graves’ squadron off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida in 2015. Sounding shocked, the pilots are heard saying: “Look at that thing, it’s rotating! My gosh! They’re all going against the wind, the wind’s 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing dude!”
Graves said pilots believe these objects are secret U.S. or enemy spy technology. He said it was most likely a threat observation program, probably from Russia or China.
Another two pilots told the program that training about 100 miles southwest of San Diego, they saw Tic Tac-like object that mirrored their moves before disappearing abruptly. Just seconds later, the same object was detected by a navy ship 60 miles away, they said.
The government has mainly ignored UFOs since 1969, when it closed its Project Blue Book investigation. It logged 12,618 UFO sightings between 1947 and 1969.

U.S. intelligence agencies are expected to deliver a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” to Congress next month, sparking renewed interest and speculation into how the government has handled sightings of mysterious flying objects — and if there’s any worldly explanation for them.
The unclassified report, compiled by the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense, aims to make public what the Pentagon knows about unidentified flying objects and data analyzed from such encounters.
While UFOs have been part of American mythology for decades, this report is different. Legitimate debates over UFO sightings have gained traction in recent years after several leaked photos and videos from the U.S. Navy appeared to show mysterious flying objects in American airspace.
Last year, the Pentagon declassified three such videos captured by Navy pilots, intensifying speculation over the incidents, which have been confirmed by pilots who have observed them and even presidents who have been briefed on them.
Here’s how UFO sightings jumped from the realm of science fiction to the halls of Congress.
What do we know so far?
In August, the Department of Defense established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to investigate and “gain insight” into the “nature and origins” of unidentified flying objects. Earlier that year, the Department of Defense declassified three videos taken by Navy pilots — one from 2004 and two from 2015 — that showed mysterious objects flying at high speeds across the sky.
“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified,’” Pentagon officials said in a statement at the time.
The three videos had leaked years earlier, but Pentagon officials said they declassified the footage to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”
A separate leaked Navy video, captured in July 2019, showed a sphere-shaped unidentified object flying over water near San Diego. The footage, obtained by a documentary filmmaker and shared with NBC News, appeared to show the mysterious object flying for a few minutes before disappearing into the water.
And on Sunday, two former Navy pilots were interviewed by “60 Minutes” on CBS News about a UFO sighting over the Pacific Ocean in 2004. Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich spotted the unidentified object during a training exercise but were unable to classify it. Fravor described it as a “little white Tic-Tac-looking object,” adding that it lacked conventional exhaust plumes and had no wings or visible markings.
It also moved erratically, the pilots said.
In an interview with NBC News that aired in February, Fravor described the 2004 encounter, calling the object “the strangest, most obscure thing I’ve ever seen flying.”
“As soon as we looked down, we see the whitewater, and then we see this little white Tic Tac,” Fravor told NBC’s “The Overview.” “It’s pointing north-south and it’s just going forward, back, left, right,” he said, adding that it was bouncing around “like a ping-pong ball.”
Fravor said he approached the mysterious object to take a closer look, and it began mirroring his movements. When the pilot got to within a half-mile of the UFO, it suddenly vanished, he said. In 2019, the Navy put together new guidelines for pilots to report “unidentified aircraft,” in a bid to formalize a process to investigate these types of mysterious sightings. The updated guidance came as a response to “a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” Navy officials told Politico in a statement at the time.
Shortly after 10:30PM in the clear, Northwest sky I observed what appeared to be a streak of light moving across the sky to the east. Initially I believed it was a piece of re-entering space junk but quickly abandoned that notion when the streak did not change in intensity as I would expect from debris or a meteor. It slowly moved from west to east at a constant speed and course. When it was directly north at its closest point, I thought I observed a very low hum but it was difficult to tell with the other sounds of the city. As it moved to the east, I expected to see it fade away as multiple other satellites and the space station had done that night but the light it emitted never decreased which led me to believe that the object was within the atmosphere and was generating the light itself rather than reflecting it. It maintained course and speed until it passed behind local trees and I could no longer see it. WITNESS 2 Saturday night I observed what I thought was a wisp of cloud which seemed weird because it was a very clear night. At first it seemed like a spiral but became more solid over time. It was very still, like a whale going through the water. It seemed to be flying at an altitude that jets would normally travel but was far more massive than any jet. I did not observe any sound or changes as it passed by. It was a very calm night and very clear. We had observed a number of other satellites previously that night and I do a lot of sky watching. I have seen Skylink before. This was unlike anything I had ever observed. Eventually it got to a point where I could no longer observe it and it was too late to leave the house.
In January my boyfriend and I were up really late and we went outside to have a cigarette. When we went outside I looked across the field and saw a large glowing dome. I pointed it out to my boyfriend and we were both in awe. We have no idea what else it could have been. It was so unbelievably bright. The entire surface of it was one solid white-orange-yellow color and seemed to be casting light, but there was no glow on the snow around it. It looked like it was about 700-800 feet away from us and it was large, if I had to guess I would say 8-10 feet wide at the base. I assume it was a sphere shape that appeared as a dome because the object was on the ground. We watched it for a minute or two just trying to figure out what it was, and by the time we decided it wasn’t normal and I ran to get my camera it started to fade away. It didn’t fly away or move at all, the light just slowly dissipated until it was completely gone. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A slender but massive in length ship flew from E to W. Entire craft was dimly lit almost like a glow so you could see the entire craft from front to rear. There was one noticeably brighter light on the side towards the back of the craft but otherwise it was a consistent soft light, almost made it seem partially translucent. It took about 5-6 minutes to cover the sky. It appeared to be several hundred feet in length but very narrow too to bottom. My wife, son and I watched it until it disappeared on the horizon. My wife and son tried to film it but it wouldn’t show on their phones. We will try to see if we can enhance the footage to get it to show up.
The following account has been addressed several times before, and I have had it in my notes for quite some time. The recent interest in the Space program, and questions about our future goals in space have caused me to dust it off. I believe it will be of interest to our viewers.
This extraordinary story comes to us from one Karl Wolfe. Wolfe worked for the Director of Intelligence at Headquarters Tactical Air Command, Technical Group. The fantastic events explained here occurred while he was stationed at Langley Field, Virginia.
Langley Field was center for information received from the Lunar Orbiter Project. Satellite receivers from around the world waited for information from the Orbiter, and it was then channeled to Langley, where the information was transformed into photographic images, and other top-secret data.
The photographic imaging was done at a secure military lab ran by NSA. In an interview for UFO magazine, Wolfe asserted that he was one of only two technicians at Langley with high enough security clearance to work with the high-tech photographic equipment which processed info from U-2 spy planes, and other military intelligence hardware.
Wolfe, in his own words:
… At any rate, I was in a color lab one day when my boss, Staff Sergeant Taylor, came over to me and said that they were having a problem with some equipment on the base an it was the first lunar orbiter program, where thy had a mission to pretty much locate the first landing sites for the 1969 lunar mission for the astronauts.
So he said they were having some problem with equipment over there. it was similar equipment to what we had- it was computerized contact printing equipment. He wanted to know if I would go over and take a look at it. He said to me, It’s an NSA facility. At the time, I didn’t Know what the NSA was–I was pretty naive.
I thought he said NASA. So in my mind, for a long time I thought it was a NASA facility that I had gone to, but I remembered him saying NSA and converting it in my own mind to NASA…
Wolfe claims that one day when NSA photographic equipment failed, he was called in to assist them with the critical repair work needed to keep the machines on the job. Coincidentally, Wolfe was the only individual available at the time trained in the type of equipment that had failed. He normally would be crossing lines by venturing into NSA territory.
His security clearance status was raised to enable him to even enter the highly secure laboratory.
Wolfe’s heart raced as he entered the here-to-fore forbidden hangar that day, and he was shocked to see the frantic activity in the lab, activities carried out by individuals of many different nations.
Wolfe had naturally thought that only American citizens would be in the NASA lab, but there were many individuals with guest name tags on, and obviously from foreign countries present this day, inferring that they were there on a temporary basis for some special occasion.
He felt a sense of panic as to his mission. Whatever he was called in for was of the utmost importance. He was told that the equipment in question was in a nearby dark room.
As he was led into the room, only the red glow of a safety light greeted him at first, but in a moment, he could make out the figure of one airman who manned the dark room.
Wolfe knew that the image processing equipment would have to be removed to be repaired, and he also knew that the diagnostics on this type of equipment would take some time to finish.
Arrangements were quickly made for the photographic equipment to be taken to another secure location for Wolfe to begin the painstaking task of troubleshooting the problem. As Wolfe waited for transport to arrive, he began to chat with the other airman. Wolfe carefully asked why the NASA work was being done at Langley and not NASA in Houston.
It was then that he was told that all of the NASA image information was downloaded to Langley, enhanced and made into the finished photographs that were then studied by different branches of the Armed Forces. The dark room attendant began to explain to Wolfe just what all the secrecy was about.
Wolfe was told that recent enhanced images had surprisingly, yet clearly shown structures on the surface of the dark side of the Moon. Structures that definitely were not created by natural means, such as meteors, or ancient collisions with other heavenly bodies. The structures were created by intelligent beings.
“We discovered,” the airman said, “a base of the back side of the Moon.”
Wolfe was obviously stunned by this extraordinary disclosure. He remembers literally “shaking” trying to take in the enormity of what he had been told. Seeing Wolfe’s disbelief, the dark room attendant continued;
“Yes, a base on the dark side of the Moon.”
Although the attendant had not actually said that the structures were not created by inhabitants of Earth, it seemed to go without saying. Wolfe was still in amazement as he was now looking down at the very photographs he was trying to envision in his mind.
Bending down under the red glowing lamp, he was seeing what so very few would see. He could clearly make out geometric shapes, well organized, and well designed.
Most noticeable to him were what looked exactly like radar antennas, very similar to what one could see on Earth.
There was no doubt now in Wolfe’s mind why the odd complement of scientists and investigators were in attendance at this place on this day. They had arrived to see and study what he was looking at now; structures made by intelligent beings on the Moon.
Questions flooded his mind now; Could Russia have made these structures, putting the first flag on the lunar surface? Could this be a joint venture of some kind? If so, by whom? Americans and aliens? Whomever was the creator, Wolfe felt like he had been caught stealing, or with his hand in the cookie jar. He was NOT supposed to see these photographs.
He could be arrested, or worse. He just wanted to do his job, leave, and never mention it again. Wolfe did finish the job he was commissioned to do, keeping the memories of that day dormant in his mind, and went on with his life.
Wolfe, however, was haunted by the images he saw that day for many years to come. After he left the active service, his security clearance prohibited him from leaving the United States for five years, and he was sworn to keep what he had seen to himself.
It would be thirty years before he told anyone about that unforgettable day.
For the year that Wolfe saw the remarkable structures on the dark side of the Moon was 1965, four years before Neil Armstrong put the first footprint on the lunar surface. Or was it the first? NOTE: The above image is real but from Russia’s luna-17 mission to the Moon.
On August 16, 1954, at 05:00pm, an event stupefied tens of thousands of witnesses at Tananarive, Madagascar (The number of potential witness is an estimated 200,000).
At 05:00pm, Air France’s agency personal awaited the arrival of the air mail, delivered by a Lockheed Constellation. One hour after the arrival of the Constellation, the mail has already been distributed and members of the Air France agency, among which Mr. Edmond Campagnac, former military officer and at that time technical director of Air France in Tananarive were quietly chatting together, close to the Avenue of the Liberation, the largest street in Tananarive.
Sudden somebody sees in the sky a “electric green ball” descending straight towards the ground near the Palais de la Reine. He points at it and everybody watches. The phenomenon disappears behind a hill, and they all expect to hear a mighty explosion when the thing hit the ground. But the green light does not hit the ground.
The green ball reappears a minute afterwards, bigger. It makes a circle over the higher parts of Tananarive, a city built on and inside a series of hills with a “horseshoe” Configuration. The thing then proceeds to fly above Avenue of the Liberation, at an altitude of some 50 to 150 meters in front of tens of thousands of amazed inhabitants. When it flew in front of the Air France personnel, they could all get a good look at it.
Mr. Campagnac realized that the “electric green light” looks like a kind of lens shaped plasma, of approximately 40 meters length, the “size of a DC4 aircraft.” This green lens is closely followed by a flying machine with a distinct silvery metallic aspect and the shape of a football, also 40 meter long, At the back of this metal machine, bluish exhaust flames are seen.
The craft was totally silent. M. Campagnac, in his testimony, which he often publicly offered, explains that the craft did not even make the sound of swishing a flyier would make through the air. In this case, it is noticeable that the estimate of altitude is not subject to doubts: indeed, while flying above the buildings of Avenue de la Libération, the craft also passed in front of the hills in the background, not with the sky as background.
Several physical phenomena were observed: first of all, the witnesses in the whole city could note that public lights and shop lights died out exactly at the moment the craft passed above them, and functioned again at once behind its passage. Then the inhabitants quickly noticed that barnyard animals, dogs in the whole city, were howling or barking. At one time during its travel above the city, the UFO flew above the animal park where peasants keep the animals to be sold at daytime at the city’s markets.
All these animals entered a state of total panic when the object flew over them, though when airplanes flew over them as usually, for example the “Constellation” one hour before, the animals did never show any such reaction, although airplanes are noisy and the UFO, again, was totally silent. After having flown over Tananarive, the machine set out towards the West. Two or three minutes after, the estimate while being with this approximation, a similar machine or the same machine was observed at 150 kilometers South of Tananarive above a farm school. There again, the herds were seized by panic.
The farm director had to call for reinforcements in order to bring back the animals which run away in all directions, risking death in marshes. It is this call to reinforcements which made the witnesses of Tananarive aware of this second observation.
If the craft observed at 150 km South was the same one as that of Tananarive, which its description suggests, although one cannot absolutely prove it, then its speed was to be about 3000 km/h. According to the statements of Air France the personal, General Fleurquin, commander-in-chief of the French Air Force in Madagascar, gathered a scientific team to carry out an investigation of the phenomena.
No trace of this investigation could be found in the Air Force records, however issue #6 of the GEPA bulletin (Group of Studies of the Aerospace Phenomena) in the 2nd half of 1964 described this observation. Mr. Campagnac remembers perfectly that it is a Jesuit clergyman, Revend Coze, director of the astronomical observatory of Tananarive, who has been given the task to carry out the survey and record the testimonies, including those of Air France people and also those of Malgaches peasants.
This gathering of testimonies also brought out that the UFO phenomenon did already manifest itself to the Malgache people on several occasions in the past years, but went ignored as no one cared to ask until now.
Mr. Edmond Campagnac, at the time technical director of Air France in Tananarive, took part in the study of the case for the COMETA committee. He expressed himself repeatedly and very precisely on this case, including of the French TV, and recently again at a televised debate concerning UFOS on the documentary cable TV channel “Planète Forum” in 2001, supported by Jean-Jacques Vélasco, director of SEPRA, the official French UFO investigation team.
Because of this exceptional occurrence, M. Catagnac’s life was not fundamentally perturbated, but indeed as he has a scientific background, he wanted to learn more on the topic of UFOs, and in particular, he wanted to search in the military records of the French Gendarmerie, was granted a clearance to access classified files, and learned about many other significant sightings. But this is another story.
Mr. Campagnac remembers that at the time of the investigation the possibility that it has been a top secret prototype of a new human flying device, for example a Soviet prototype, has been considered. But now as time went by and as we know of the history of aviation development, we clearly can rule out that any such craft was in the possibility of any countries in 1954.
No “secret plane”, even as of today, has anything in common with the craft in this event, visually, or by its performances, its operation, its behavior. Jean Jacques Vélasco has checked and commented the case and points out its interesting features: The trajectory of the object, descending from a high altitude vertically to the ground, then showing up again instead of crashing and flying above the ground at low altitude over the city.
The physical phenomenon of public and private lightings dying out as the UFO was passing above, and the return to normal lighting when he went further. Phenomena of the animals reactions. The possibility of the correct estimate of the size because the object passed in front of the hills in the background. The heterogeneous cultural background of the witness: “Mr. Campagnac might have read about UFOs in Science-Fiction literature, but it is rather doubtful that the Malgaches peasants were all under the influence of US Science Fiction pulps.”
The fact that the case does not occur in the United States or a European country, suspected to be a sociological terrain to made up UFO stories, but in a far away Island, is an indication that good UFO cases exist all around the world. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
JUNE 14, 1989 ……….CHILLIWACK BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA
I grew up in an old house on a large piece of property, surrounded by trees, ponds, and everything that a young kid could ever want. It was amazing to spend my youth catching frogs, swimming, and spending every minute I could outside. I remember being a happy, outgoing kid who grew up in a healthy, well-adjusted household. But then everything changed when I was around nine years old… Sometime between 1988 and 1990, I saw something hovering in the air just above the treeline, right outside my childhood home one summer morning. The headboard of my small bed was pushed up against the base of a south-facing window in my room. I have no idea why, but I can remember this extremely clearly. It was early in the morning, but the sun was up and the sky had no clouds at all. Rather than waking up and opening my eyes in a fog, like everyone normally does, I know that I woke up instantly while I was laying flat on my back; picture yourself laying on your back like a board with your eyes closed, now open them as fast as you can and being abruptly awake.
The kind of ‘wake up’ where you know something isn’t right instantly and you’re on full alert. Thing is, I opened my eyes quickly and was staring straight at a triangle sitting motionless in the air, roughly 50 to 100 feet above the trees that surrounded my yard. I remember staring at it for roughly a minute or less and seeing three blue-ish white circles under it. I couldn’t move or blink. I couldn’t even think. It was just sitting there motionless and, for some reason that I can’t understand, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I was staring at something that I couldn’t explain, couldn’t identify, and made no sense of, yet this nine-year-old boy simply went back to sleep…? To this day, I swear that I didn’t fall back asleep under my own free will, but I have no evidence and obviously can’t explain what happened. I do not know if it’s related to what I saw, or just a simple case of sleep paralysis, but I can also remember being ‘frozen’ in bed as a child on multiple occasions. I have no memories of seeing anything or being taken anywhere, but one of those frozen moments involved something heavy on my back that kept me from rolling over or getting up.
While I’m not convinced that it’s related, I distinctly remember simply falling asleep while being held down, just like I fell asleep after seeing the triangle out my bedroom window. I couldn’t scream but I was terrified, and I just went back to sleep? So strange. Something changed after I saw that damn triangle. I became far less outgoing, laughed less, and have been very, very anti-social since then. I’m 40 years old now and have been interested in unexplainable sightings since I was a child, obviously due in large part to what I saw, but I’ve never told anyone, not even family members. I remember thinking to myself that I’ll tell my parents if someone else reports seeing something odd, but no one ever did, at least that I know of. But I don’t understand how, if the triangle really was real, no one else saw it given the nearby houses and people. Very confusing. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
SEPTEMBER 30, 1954 ……….NOUATRE, INDRE-ET-LOIRE FRANCE
This case was originally brought to light by renown researcher Jacques Vallee, and it is a strange one indeed. Occurring at Nouatre, Indre-et-Loire, France in 1954, it is a case unlike any other, and yet all of the witnesses to the event are considered trustworthy, and their strange sighting has never been debunked.
American ufology students have treated this case with little credibility, but serious investigators have embraced it as genuine. It began at a construction site at 4:30 P.M. on September 30, 1954.
George Gatay, who was foreman of an eight-man construction crew, was unexpectedly drawn away from his crew, feeling a sense of “peculiar drowsiness.” He was walking, but did not know why or to where. A short distance from his construction site, Gatay was amazed to encounter a man standing on a slope, some 30 feet from him.
The “man” was wearing an opaque glass helmet with a large visor. He was wearing gray coveralls, and short boots. He also held an object in his hand, which Gatay described as a weapon of some kind, like a rod. There was a kind of electronic instrument display on his chest. This strange looking man was standing in front of a dome-shaped object, which hovered about 3 feet above the ground.
The craft had a cupola with blade-like devices above it. Gatay, enthralled with the sight of the man and his craft, was frozen in his tracks.
Gatay stated: “Suddenly, the strange man vanished, and I couldn’t explain how he did it, since he did not disappear from my field of vision by walking away, but vanished like an image one erases. Then I heard a strong whistling sound which drowned the noise of our excavators. Soon the object rose by successive jerks, in a vertical direction, and then it too was erased in a sort of blue haze, as if by a miracle.”
Gatay had tried to run after first seeing the being and object, but was “paralyzed” during the sighting. Strangely, his seven co-workers were also in a sort of a daze during the incident. All eight of the men were “non-believers” before their strange incident.
As soon as Gatay was released from his strange encounter, he ran back to the other workers, and cried, “Have you seen something?” One of the men, Mr. Beurrois, exclaimed, “Yes–A flying saucer!”
Another of the men, excavator driver Mr. Lubanovic added, “There was a man dressed like a diver in front of it.” The other workers all added their confirmation to the strange event.
Gatay was a well-known and respected man who had fought in the war with the French Resistance, and was wounded in Luxembourg. After the sighting, he began to suffer from insomnia, strong headaches, and a loss of appetite.
These symptoms lasted about a week. Even after this strange sighting, the men collectively believed that they had been witnesses to some type of experimental craft, probably from France itself.
This explanation was not feasible given the details of the hovering of the craft, and the actual vanishing of the craft in front of the men. What was this other-wordly craft seen by these men?
And the being, was it a living entity, or a remotely controlled robot of some type? To this day, no reasonable explanation has been given to answer these questions, and this case is still listed as unexplained. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
