In 2010 a retired U.S. Army veteran name Paul Epley made a ‘deathbed confession.’ This disclosure included several supposed covert operations and classified incidents that he claimed to be involved with. Epley served in the U.S. Army from 1948 to 1955. He was a master sergeant, a first sergeant, a company commander and worked for the government. Because of his clandestine assignments, the government/military refused to acknowledge his service and denied him benefits even after 21 legal appeals were made by his attorneys. No matter what steps he took, his records and benefits were denied until 50 years after the end of the Korean War which was in 2003. His disclosure is an incredible revelation, if true. When Paul Epley finally talked publically about some of his secret military activities, his story ended up in a small North Carolina newspaper. He states that two weeks later, two FBI men showed up where he was working and said, “If you don’t keep your mouth shut, we’ll shut it.” That was in the 1990s, but in 2010 Paul no longer cared if they killed him. He was 80 years old, fighting cancer and wants to get three things off his conscience. On August 8, 2010, a reporter and crew were invited to his home to record stories that had haunted him nearly his entire life. They were given access to documents and an earlier video that originally wasn’t to be released until after his death. The following information was provided during the interview…including the reporter’s summation:‘I saw a live Roswell alien’
In the summer of 1950, Paul was in the U.S. Army and working at Camp Wallace on the James River in Virginia. One day, for reasons he no longer can recall, he went to Camp Peary near Williamsburg, Virginia. While there, he recognized an MP guarding a bunker; they had served in Guam together.
“I went down and asked him what he was guarding,” says Paul, “and he said I can’t show you. So I kept talking to him and he said, ‘All right, I’ll give you a brief look at it.’ So he opened the door.”
Behind the door, just 15 to 20 feet from him, was an alien standing in a small cage with a base that was only three to four feet square. The alien was about 4 ½ feet tall and only wearing briefs.
What caught Paul’s eye the most was the alien’s skin color which he described as “an old orange-gray, dead-looking color.” Despite the color, Paul assured us it was alive and seemed to be aware of his presence.
Though smaller and skinnier, Paul found the alien’s features remarkably human-like. The shape of the head, ears, eyes, nose, chest, arms and legs were all similar to those of a human being. He did say the alien was almost bald with just a little bit of hair. He also noticed the alien’s fingers were longer than those of a human being.
After viewing the alien for several minutes, Paul left the bunker. He recalls the guard saying “that was the fifth one from Roswell” and “they were taking it up north somewhere.” In an earlier interview, Paul explained that the alien was transported from Roswell, New Mexico to Fort Hood, Texas before arriving at Camp Peary, Virginia. “At that time,” Paul adds, “Camp Peary was the most secret place that we had in America. I didn’t know much because I didn’t stay there long, but I know you had to have top secret (clearance) to get in.”
NOTE: Camp Peary is known as ‘The Farm’. Officially it is referred to as the Armed Forces Experimental Training Activity (AFETA) under the auspices of the Department of Defense, but it is widely believed to be the location of a covert CIA training facility. During the 1950’s, the Navy secured the location and access required high-security clearance…Lon [ PHANTOMS AND MONSTERS ]
WORLD War One, London: a German airship is pounding the capital with bombs. Several aircraft are scrambled to attack the enemy raider. But as well as the giant Zeppelin a mysterious object is seen in the sky by the British pilots. “One of them described it as looking like a railway carriage with the blinds down,” says Nigel Watson, who has investigated the century-old sighting. “One pilot took some shots with his revolver but the object flew away out of range.” The strange incident is one of the more extraordinary encounters featured in the Plympton author’s latest book, UFOs Of The First World War. There are many more: Nigel’s book will cause a rethink for anybody who reckons UFOs – unidentified flying objects – only arrived after World War Two departed in 1945. True, the term ‘flying saucer’ was coined in 1947 (after a description of an unexplained object that flew ‘like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water’). But UFOs have been seen for centuries and descriptions of them have evolved over time. “It’s called ‘cultural tracking’,” says Nigel. “People tend to see things in the sky that are a bit more advanced than the current technology but still within the bounds of credibility and the possibilities of that time. “What we see is conditioned by the media and culture.” Hence during the 1914-18 war people saw, and explained what they saw as, objects that fitted the era of airships and biplanes. Nigel, 60, is an expert in the history of UFOs and the latest book is his fourth on the subject. His research came from War Office files held by the Public Records Office – police passed sightings to the government department charged with conducting the British effort during the conflict – and from newspapers (which were heavily censored from 1915 on). “Military intelligence officers investigated the sightings,” says Nigel. “Often they were found, after a few phone calls, to be misidentifications. Some were not explained. “There were a lot of UFO sightings in the Lake District. Troops were sent to search for an enemy aircraft base in Scotland.
“Nothing was found but a reward of £100 (the equivalent of a year’s wage for some) was offered to anybody who did.” The Ashburton area was another hotspot for sightings. Lieutenant Colonel W P Drury, a military intelligence officer based in Plymouth, was sent to investigate a series reports of strange, floating lights in the sky in June and July, 1915. The officer witnessed the light once himself and noted that other sightings were on a line on the map that passed though Buckfast Abbey. “Some German prisoners were being held there,” says Nigel. “He thought that the light might be up to them, to signal (to the enemy) but there were not a lot of targets on Dartmoor.” Nothing he found has convinced Nigel of the presence of an alien life in connection with the sightings. He remains an ‘optimistic sceptic’, he says. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
On Friday the 13th I was returning about 7:30 pm. Driving east on Cape Coral Pkwy near 4 Freedoms Park. Six lanes of traffic; quite busy I had to pay attention to driving. I saw ahead to my left in the sky what I assumed was a commercial plane flying toward the Fort Myers International airport but when I seemed to pass it, glancing , I noticed it had a line up of red, green and yellow lights along the full side. It was NOT moving as I had to quickly glance back to see it. When I was finally able to move to a side street, stopping and looking back, it had vanished. It was growing dark and the sky was partially cloudy, the vehicle being below the cloud line. I heard no noise, and when thinking back realized it seemed small for a large jet to be that close. I repeat, it did not move either as a jet would have been far forward of the traffic and I would not have had to look back to see it. I knew it must be a UFO by the colored lights that ran the full length. I am not good at describing distances and as I was driving did not think of it. I am a MUFON member and am trying to be more careful of such observations. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
Near Imjarvi, Finland – January 7, 1970 – 16:45Aarno Heinonen and Esko Viljo saw a bright light in the sky approaching them with a buzzing sound. A round 10-foot wide metallic object with a flat bottom, wrapped at first in a reddish gray mist, descended to within 10-12 ft of the ground, and the buzzing ceased. It was so close to Heinonen that he could have touched it with his ski pole. From an opening in the center of the object’s bottom, a bright light beam was the emitted, creating an illuminated area of 3 ft in diameter on the snow beneath it, edged with black. A red gray mist descended again; when it cleared both men could see, only 10 feet away, a 3-foot tall humanoid creature standing in the illuminated area, carrying in its hands a black box with a pulsating yellow light. The arms and legs were very thin, the face pale like wax, and the nose hooked; it wore a light green coverall with darker green knee boots, white gauntlets, and a conical metallic helmet. Then the mist again descended, and long red, green and purple “sparks” floated out from the lighted area. A sort of flame rose from this spot and entered the UFO; then the mist vanished, as did the UFO. After this experience, Heinonen found his right leg numb, vomited, and passed black urine; Viljo also suffered severe physiological effects. The former would claim, two years later, a series of contacts with a female spacewoman. ‘I was standing completely still. Suddenly I felt as if somebody had seized my waist from behind and pulled me backwards. I think I took a step backwards, and in the same second I caught sight of the creature. It was standing in the middle of the light beam with a black box in its hands. Out of a round opening in the box there came a yellow light, which was pulsating…’ The time was 4.45 pm on Wednesday 7 January 1970, the place was lmjarvi, 15 km NW of Heinola in southern Finland. Woodman Aarno Heinonen, 36, and farmer Esko Viljo, 38, both active competition skiers, were out skiing. They came down from a little hill to a glade where they usually take a pause. It was sunset, and a few stars were visible in the unclouded sky. It was very cold (-17 Celsius) and windless. They had been standing in the glade for about 5 minutes when they heard a buzzing sound, and caught sight of a very strong light moving through the sky. It approached from the north, made a wide sweep, and came at them from the south, descending as it came. The faint buzzing sound became louder. The light halted, and then they could see that a luminous red-grey mist was swirling round it. Puffs of smoke were thrown up from the top of the cloud.
The two men stood quite still staring into the air, saying nothing. The cloud was soon down as low as 15 m, and they could see what was inside it: a round object, flat at the bottom, metallic in appearance and about 3 m in diameter. Heinonen’s account, as reported by GICOFF (the Goteberg UFO information centre) runs: ‘The round craft hovered awhile completely motionless above us while the buzzing sound could still be heard, quite low. Then the huge disc began to descend along with the red-grey fog which became more thin and transparent It stopped at a height of 3-4 m, so near I could have touched it if 1 had reached with my ski-stick. ‘The craft was completely round. When it came down obliquely towards us we saw it had a dome on the upper side. Along the lower edge was a kind of raised part on which were three spheres or domes spaced equidistantly, From the centre of the bottom projected a tube, approximately 25 cm in diameter, from which suddenly there came an intense beam of light. ‘I don’t think we said anything to each other at all. We were completely amazed. We saw the light move a couple of times before stopping and intensely illuminating a patch of snow about a metre in diameter, with round it a dark edge, almost coal-black and 1 cm wide. ‘I was standing completely still. Suddenly I felt as if somebody had seized my waist from behind and pulled me backwards. I think I took a step backwards, and in the same second I caught sight of the creature. It was standing in the middle of the light beam with a black box in its hands. Out of a round opening in the box there came a yellow light, pulsating. The creature was about 90 cm tall, with very thin arms and legs. Its face was pale like wax. I didn’t notice the eyes, but the nose was very strange, it was a hook rather than a nose. The ears were very small and narrowed towards the head. The creature wore some kind of overall in a light green material. On its feet were boots of a darker green colour, which stretched above the knees. There were also white gauntlets going up to the elbows, and the fingers were bent like claws around the black box.’ Viljo: ‘The creature stood in the middle of the bright light and was luminous like phosphorus, but its face was very pale. Its shoulders were very thin and slanting, with thin arms like a child’s.
I did not think of the clothes, only noticing that they were greenish in colour. On its head was a conical helmet shining like metal. The creature was less than 1 m tall.’ Suddenly it turned and directed the opening of the box towards Heinonen: The pulsating light was very bright, almost blinding. It was very silent in the forest. Suddenly a red-grey mist came flowing down from the object and large sparks started to fly from the illuminated circle of snow. The sparks were like tapers, about 10 cm long, red, green and violet. They floated out in long curves, rather slowly; many of them hit me, but though I expected them to burn me, I did not feel anything.’ Viljo: ‘The sparks were shining in several colours. It was very beautiful. At the same time the red mist became thicker and hid the creature. Suddenly it was so dense that I could not see Aarno even though I knew he was standing only a few metres away from me.” Heinonen: ‘I could only just see Esko. The mist was very thick and I could no longer see the creature.’ Viljo: ‘I saw the being for perhaps 15-20 seconds, no longer. Suddenly the beam melted, flew up like a flickering flame, and was sucked into the gap in the craft. After that it was as if the fog curtain was torn to pieces. The air above us was empty! I don’t think you can say we were afraid. We were laughing and talking about this light. But at the same time we felt a little uneasy.” They stayed there for perhaps three minutes, Gradually Heinonen became aware of a numbness in his right side. When he stepped forward on his skis, his right leg wouldn’t support him and he fell in the snow. ‘My right leg had been nearest the light. The whole leg was stiff and aching. My foot was as if anaesthetised.’ Viljo: It was growing dark. I asked Aarno if we should be on our way. I thought he was joking when he sat down in the snow. But then I saw he couldn’t get up though he tried over and over again.’ NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
Hello – I submitted a report to MUFON several years ago but never heard back from the group. This incident continues to haunt me. I don’t have an actual copy of the report but I’ll give you as many details as possible from the notes. I know what I saw is true. In 1972 I was living in a four family flat in Highland Park, MI on Glendale. I was about 8 years old. A new family had just moved in from Texas and I became friends with their girl who was my age. I slept over at her place one night. In the early a.m. I woke to use the bathroom and got out of bed. The bathroom was located on the right side of the room I was sleeping in, at the end of the hall. The hall was shaped like an ‘L’. Not long after I got up I heard a noise that sounded like a door moving. I walked to the long side of the hall to see who was awake. The light shining from the bathroom allowed me to see what I thought was a small child holding onto a knob and peering out from behind the door. I could see his silhouette and I thought he must be hungry because he looked so skinny. I took a step closer blinking my eyes as to clear up my sleepy vision. As my vision became more clear I turned my head to the left and it mimicked me. That’s when I saw the eye – it was large and black – so I turned my head to the right and it mimmicked me again. It had tiny slits for a nose and a dimple for a mouth as it appeared from behind the door. Then I noticed the 3 long fingers holding the door knob. It had no clothes and I could only see the one shoulder. The skin appeared to be grey a dark grey. I took a deep breath and urinated on the wax floor and then fainted.
I woke the next morning and remembered that I had urinated on the floor but there was no evidence. I didn’t know why I would do that my underwear were bright white, almost glowing. I was back in the bed and there was no urine in the bed. I felt no reason to tell my mom or my friend that I urinated in the hall – there was no proof the wax floor was not damaged and my underwear were better than new. Well fast forward to 1986 – 14 years later. Time Life Magazine advertised a giveaway book ‘Aliens – are they really out there’ and flashed a picture of the alien. Suddenly, I flashed back – I was 8 years old again standing in the hall reliving everything over again. They are here they have been here for years. For two weeks after that flash back I could not walk. A relative told me I believe there is a chip in my leg and that they may have nicked a nerve inserting it. There was also a deep indentation on my leg for quite a long time. I gained so much weight as well. This happened to me and I decided when I wrote MUFON that I will continue to go on acting as if it was a dream. There is a bit more to the story and it concerns the family from Texas I was visiting that night. After several years I saw them again and I told them my story. They confirmed it to be true because one of their family later committed suicide as a result of watching the alien move about the residence. This was my friend’s younger brother who had not been born before we moved away. The family did not believe his encounters so he eventually killed himself. I wish I could have been there because I saw the alien and I would have believed him. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
23 REPORTS OF ALIENS HAVE THE WEST MIDLANDS POLICE BUSY
MARCH 2015 ……… WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM
Alien activity in the western central English county of West Midlands is apparently keeping police officers there pretty busy. According to the West Midlands Police Department’s website, “As part of its pledge to be as open and transparent as possible, West Midlands Police publishes all FOI requests onto its website as a matter of course.” It continues, “And while the act enables important statistics and information to be published, it has also highlighted some of the force’s more unusual call outs.” One FOI request asks, “Please, under the freedom of information act can you tell me how many alien abductions have been reported in the West Midlands over past three years, breaking it down for each area? Can you also give details on each case and how the report was resolved?” The department says it has received twenty-three alien-related reports during the past four years. How these numbers compare to police departments in other parts of the world is unknown. But it seems like a lot, considering that these aren’t simple calls about strange lights in the sky. Two calls were from people who were either being attacked by aliens, or were reporting an alien home invasion. Three of the calls were from people seeking police assistance because extraterrestrials were allegedly in the process of abducting them, or coming to abduct them. Four calls were from people who reported that they were either talking to aliens or hearing aliens talking to them. The remaining fourteen calls were from people reporting that they had seen extraterrestrials in West Midlands.
The police department points out, “Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.” The twenty-three reports provided by the West Midlands police resulted from its own system search using the terms “alien” and “alien abduction.” So it’s conceivable that the department has received more than twenty-three extraterrestrial-related reports, which might contain other terms like “extraterrestrial” and/or “E.T.” – West Midlands police respond to reports of hostile .

13-year old deaf mute, William Ortiz was riding his horse on a gravel road in his parent’s property when peering through the growth of vegetation on one side of the road, he noticed a child-like figure, but continued on his way. Then in an opening through the brush and in top of a large rock, he saw a disc shaped object with little figures around it. After staring at it he stopped in confusion, looked over his shoulder, and noticed one of the child-like figures next to him. He noticed that the entity wore some type of uniform, very tight fitting and covering the neck and legs. He also wore boots. The collar ended like a turtleneck, and he could see something like a seam in the form of a V on the shoulders. The hands only had four fingers, he was not really so sure. The being had a large hairless head. The eyes were big, oval shaped and very black, some of the other crewmember’s eyes were smaller than the others. There were no ears, just a little hole on each side of the head; the nose was small as well as the lips, which never moved. The skin color was grayish brown. The entity closest to him appeared to be a male. The others looked the same. The entity closest to him, looked directly into Ortiz’s eyes and started sending him messages and at the same time using hand signals or language. Eight enigmatic words were given by the entity, which included “sky” “love” & “secret.” After the message, the entity made a turn toward the rock. At this moment Ortiz could not see the rest of the crew. The entity went back to the object half walking, half floating, very fast. Then the object went straight up, made a turn to the southwest, and disappeared into the horizon. The rock on which the object rested has many peculiar symbols carved on it that included lines, circles, disk shapes, serpents and other symbols.

While in the army, on July 28, 1998, at 01:00 a.m. within 5 kilometers of the town of Tindouf in the Algerian Sahara, with a comrade, he suddenly saw a light coming towards him. The two men were quite afraid because they had gone downtown without asking permissions from their chief and probably initially thought that they were being sought for. They thus hid behind a sand hillock, while the light approached right in front of them within 4.5 meters, the display appearing to them like some science fiction movie, imposing and beautiful. For the witness, there was no doubt that it was a UFO, if only by its size of almost 9 meters. I was hovering 1.50 meters above ground-level, with a light with front and another at the back, different from other lights, which seemed to go down and project on the place in a “square” beam or a square section. It had also a light on the top and another below, both described as beautiful. The craft also had “windows” with dark lights (obscured or darker?), and they did not hear any engine noise, only a sound compared to that of a simple ventilator. The two men then fled, the witness looking back when he was at a distance of 30 meters from the UFO. He then saw that the UFO was stopped in front of a fill, and that a meager “thing” came out of it, that he could not see well, but it had a small bump on the head. He then fled again running as fast as he could. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
The two orb-like unidentified objects were captured floating in the sky above Barwell, Leicestershire. A 41-year-old woman spotted the two balls of bright white light after strange noises woke her at 4.50 am on February 3, reports the Hinckley Times. She thought it was coming from downstairs so she got out of bed and went to see what it was. After finding nothing the woman went to make her way back to bed when she suddenly spotted the two lights out of her window. Are these orbs of light UFOs? Joanne Kavanagh, who is investigating the incident on behalf of Lufoin – the Leicestershire UFO Investigation Network – said: “It was a clear night and there were no clouds in the sky. “The lights kept merging into one and moving side to side.
“She said she watched them for about a minute and a half and got 20 seconds of video on her phone. “Then they shot off at speed together and merged into one again. “It’s quite an interesting case.” Hinckley Times / Paramount A 41-year-old woman from Earl Shilton spotted the two balls of bright white light in the early hours of February 3 of this year. Hinckley residents may have to remain vigilant… Joanne, who has experienced strange unexplained incidents herself, said the organization is trying to figure out what may have caused the lights. She said: “We don’t have a clue at the minute. We are trying to rule out whether it was an aircraft – we know it wasn’t anything to do with a police helicopter and we are still waiting to hear from the air ambulance. “The way they were moving and shot off within seconds, that’s not the actions of a helicopter or plane. “A lot of incidents can be linked to Chinese lanterns or drones but I don’t believe the orbs moved in the same way.”
AIRLINE PILOTS ARE STILL AFRAID TO REPORT ALIEN CRAFT IN THE SKY
Captain Jim Courant has been a commercial pilot for over 31 years. “It is almost astounding how many people are in the know on this subject,” he said, speaking before the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 3. Courant has been researching and studying the phenomena of UFOs for years. He has collected over 3,000 books on UFOs and extraterrestrials, and hosted a television series on the issue titled “New Perspectives” which ran for three years. He still flies for a commercial airline and because of his exposure on television has became known as an authority on UFO’s and extraterrestrial encounters.He has been contacted, and still is, by many commercial airline and military pilots who are happy to discuss their UFO’s encounters privately but do not want to talk publicly, fearing ridicule and in some cases retaliation. “They are afraid,” not so much about their status or their retirement benefits, but “they are more afraid for their families,” he said. He described the experience of one pilot who was flying a 747 over the Pacific in 1980, when he came across a UFO in front of him. “You won’t believe what we saw,” the pilot had said, according to Courant. “This thing was bigger that a 747.” Courant said the pilot told him that when he got to his destination in Japan, he “was debriefed and told never to talk about it again.” Courant told the hearing about his own encounter with a UFO. In 1995, he was flying near Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he and his co-pilot saw a blue green oval shape approaching from the left. “In a flash of burning white light, the object suddenly shot up at a 45 degree angle,” he told the hearing. Four other pilots reported to the air traffic control tower that they had also seen the object. “One pilot said it must have been a meteor,” Courant recounted, adding, “I got on and said ‘Since when does a meteor go back up?’” When asked about his co-pilot’s reaction in a telephone conversation following the Disclosure hearing, Courant said, “He refused to discuss it and has never flown with me again.” Courant said pilots have reported seeing a variety of craft that appear suddenly and move at speeds impossible with present technology. Reports include cigar shaped craft, triangular craft, and some that are the size of an aircraft carrier or larger. He says airline pilots are “very serious in their profession” and not likely to make exaggerations. The website NAPCAR, co-founded in 1999 by Dr. Richard F. Haines, a recognized specialist in UFOs and a former Chief Scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, has been effective at documenting sightings, but Courant says more needs to be done. UFO sightings are only “the tip of the iceberg” in terms of what has been experienced and what is known about extraterrestrials, he said. “There are certain things I have been privy to, but I can’t get into that here,” he told the hearing. Courant said it was time for the United States government to come clean with what its agencies have documented and learned through decades of extraterrestrial encounters. Airline pilots know what they have seen, he said and should be able to talk about it without fear of ridicule. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
MARCH 6, 2013 ……….. MERSEYSIDE–SAINT HELENS UNITED KINGDOM
I have captured an unidentified object speeding through the region’s skies at night. George Hunter spotted unusual lights darting across the night sky near his home in Rainford. He was baffled by the object but is convinced it was NOT a commercial aircraft. Mr Hunter said: “I went out last Friday to see a friend, I got back home and was making a coffee, the time was just after midnight. It was through the kitchen window that I saw some very bright lights in a triangular formation, I went outside into the back garden and saw some very bright orange lights in a triangular pattern, no noise or movement, quiet high in the night sky. “I filmed the lights and zoomed in on them, but only managed to get a short clip on my phone, as the lights suddenly shot off whilst I was filming them, very fast, and gone in less than a second. It was almost like something out of Star Trek moving at warp speed, I have never seen anything move that fast. “I live roughly a mile from the town center. I have no idea what the lights were. I am sure that this was no ordinary aircraft such as a plane or helicopter, it simply moved too fast and had no noise, plus I am pretty sure the object was much bigger than some everyday aircraft. I am sure that this was no ordinary aircraft such as a plane or helicopter, it simply moved too fast and had no noise, plus I am pretty sure the object was much bigger than some everyday aircraft. “I have seen aircraft lights at the same height and they look tiny in comparison to what I saw, I am convinced that what I saw was a huge object, it is difficult to tell from the clip and it certainly doesn’t do it justice, it was much bigger and brighter to the naked eye. “I suppose this could have been some type of military aircraft, but this was completely silent and made no noise like a jet engine would have. “Plus, like I said, this appeared to be to massive. I am stumped as to what the object could have been, I thought I would send it in to see if anyone else might have seen it or have an explanation.”
FRIGHTENING ALIEN DISC ENCOUNTER IN WASHINGTON STATE
FEBURARY 19, 2015 ……. COLUMBIA RIVER, WASHINGTON STATE
On Thursday, February 19, 2015 I was driving from Kennewick, WA to Vancouver, WA on the Oregon Interstate 84 West that runs along the Columbia River. At 11:55 a.m., I was approximately 1/4 mile from the green Gilliam Co. road sign. The weather was clear with some sun and high white and dark rolling clouds. A train came up alongside of me on the raised tracks to the north of the Interstate. On the north side of the train track, setting lower, is the Columbia River bed and river. I looked over at the train as it passed me, wondering how fast it was traveling as I was driving approximately 68-69 m.p.h. I glanced back at the train to the left and caught something out of the corner of my eye to the right that made a downward fishhook motion from above the river water, as if it had descended and leveled. I looked directly out my passenger window and parallel with me was a small domed craft, what appeared to be hovering, but it also stayed parallel with me as I continued to drive. It was approximately 10-15 feet above the Columbia River water, well below the Interstate and train track. There were no boats in the water and this was an obvious aircraft with an obvious shape, above the water.
I glanced back again at the last train car that was now ahead of me on the track and back to the craft for size comparison, and the craft appeared to be slightly larger than half a train car. The craft shape was slightly domed on top and was symmetrical. It appeared to be directly facing me as it stayed parallel with me. On the end of the dome, on the left and right, were small extensions that looked like downward wing tips. The underbelly was slightly domed, but not as much as the top part. In the center of the side wall facing me, was a smooth small protruding cone, or rounded tip of some kind, with a perfect black circle on the end. Above this cone, was a shape that resembled a bell dome, or what came to mind at the time was the shape of a WWII German soldier hard hat, with a slight curl on the end and small brim at the top. The center of the bell looked flat, which looked like a cockpit window of sorts, but there was no glass reflection or difference in color from the rest of the craft. The overall color was a dry flat blended, almost swirled, grayish green, very similar in color to that of the river, but the river was shiny and glossy, and this was an obvious; flat color, and again, obviously shaped and raised above the water. This entire event was only a matter of seconds, approximately 12, but felt slow motion at the same time as I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
The craft, while appearing to stay even with me while I continued to drive, and the train out of immediate view now, made a 1/4 slow even circular turn to the right and paused for a second. As it did this, I did not see the profile of the cone or brim that was on the front. It appeared a smooth, almost fluid, transition. There were no shapes or markings on this side, only the same grayish green color. The craft then very quickly made a 3/4 right turn, bringing it full circle, and it shot upward, heading northwest toward the Washington side of the Columbia River, in a steep, just slightly angled, climb, well above the mountain on the Washington side of the river. As it made its final turn before heading upward, I heard a loud brief swoosh sound. The craft appeared to turn black once it moved away from the water. In a matter of 2-3 seconds, it disappeared in to the white rolling clouds above. There were no visible lights on the craft, no jet trail, no heat or fume waves visible. Nothing. I drove to the next small town of Arlington, OR, and pulled in to their park. My heart was racing and I felt nauseous. I think I was in shock from what I had just seen.

SPHERICAL UFO CRAFT SPOTTED OVER MEDFORD NEW JERSEY
MARCH 11, 2015 …….. MEDFORD LAKES NEW JERSEY
I was inside by bay window speaking. It was bright enough for us to notice appearing from nothingness. It was too bright to be a star and stationary canceling out a plane or satellite. Binoculars were grabbed immediately and I tried my best to take note, about ten minutes it began heading NW by W. It was clearly spherical, lights on the craft seemed attached to it on multiple layers or close enough distance. White lights were stationed on its horizon giving clear indication of its rotation. Multiple color lights were molding onto different areas spinning around the object and changing colors. It was stationary at first then began a straight path NW by W continuing the previous actions I described at a continuous altitude and speed until it was too far to keep track of. I ran inside and started this report before losing track of it. I was immediately curious until multiple dogs began to bark as well as my own and some were noticeably frightened or on an aggressive stance which made me turn cautious yet still inviting as I could possibly be. The object was heading NW by W at a constant speed and altitude until I ran inside to write a report after watching it for 40-45 minutes and lost track of it behind tree line.

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer Chief Investigator for MUFON New Jersey.
KENS NOTE: This area of South Jersey of covered with lakes both big and small. Our State Director George Filer has a house on the lake and one rose out of the water right in front of his home. George lives in Medford New Jersey. I feel these alien craft are hiding in the lakes and rivers in our state and probably throughout the world. Since these alien craft must be pressurized, then this would be perfect for hiding in water, just like a submarine would. Simple as that.
OVAL SHAPED ALIEN DISC INVESTIGATED BY THE AIR FORCE.
FEBURARY 17, 1969 ………….. TWINSBURG OHIO
Twinsburg — A popular TV show once opined that “the truth is out there.” The evidence may have been in the evening sky over the city Feb. 17, 1969. The curious case of one local UFO sighting began innocuously enough in the city of 7,000 with TV interference at a Glenwood Drive home. It concluded, abruptly, with a bizarre visit to the Twinsburg Police Department from a United States Air Force lieutenant colonel and his mysterious, diminutive sidekick. According to a recently released report from Project Blue Book, the United States Air Force’s systematic analysis of UFO reports between 1952 and 1969, a woman, 44, and her son, 19, were watching the news when the color contrast went out on their TV — and then the entire signal. The mother walked outside at dusk to check the antennae, and immediately called Twinsburg police to report an “oval-shaped object that had red and white lights around it” — what World War II pilots might have dubbed a “foo fighter,” or UFO, just two decades earlier. “Looking up we saw the strange object, coming over Glenwood Drive,” said the woman, whose identity is redacted in the March 6, 1969, report. “I never seen anything like this before,” she states. “It seemed to have stopped near the corner of [Glenwood Drive], then proceeded down [East Idlewood Drive] for about a quarter mile … then it just went right up out of sight.”
Sgt. Donald Prange, a former Twinsburg officer and Marine Corps veteran who later served as chief of police in Twinsburg in the late 1970s, responded to the woman’s call around 6:40 p.m. More than 20 calls referencing the UFO were ultimately fielded by Twinsburg dispatch that evening. Prange, now 77, recalled the event with detail Jan. 27 from his home in Rancho Cordova, Calif. “We officers talked amongst ourselves after the sighting,” said Prange, who said he witnessed the object over R.B. Chamberlin High School for several minutes with Twinsburg patrolmen Walter Orcutt and Herbert Munn. “I told them I didn’t think we should say anything to anyone … they would think we were crazy.” In keeping with caution, the TPD did not immediately report the event to the USAF. The USAF was made aware of the event thanks to a Feb. 18, 1969, letter from the woman’s 19-year-old son to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton detailing the sighting. In its April 22, 1969, conclusion to the Glenwood Drive woman, the USAF determined that the object was actually an “aerial advertizing [sic] aircraft.” “A letter was sent to the Twinsburg Police Department requesting information on the sighting, however this office did not receive a reply … the description of the UFO is similar to past reports of Aerial Advertizing aircraft,” states Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla, chief of the now defunct Aerial Phenomena Branch at Wright-Patterson. Prange said he doesn’t buy the USAF’s answer in the Twinsburg incident any more than he believes its conclusion from a Portage County case three years earlier, in 1966, when officers were informed that they had just chased the planet Venus for 85 miles, from Ravenna to just outside of Pittsburgh. “It was like nothing I’ve ever seen,” Prange said. “We had three cars respond, and watched it for several minutes over R.B. Chamberlin High School, near some power lines there.
“It appeared to be stationary, hovering. What bothered me is that it didn’t seem to be making any noise, at least not that ‘egg beater’ sound you get from a helicopter. It was more like a whirring sound. Then it slowly rose up and disappeared.” For the woman and her son, the story ends with the April 1969 correspondence from Quintanilla. For Prange and his fellow officers, the story of the peculiar foo fighter over Twinsburg has one final, bizarre chapter. About a month after the sighting, Prange says his department was visited by a USAF lieutenant colonel — believed to be Quintanilla — and a “strange little man.” “They brought out a light colonel … another strange little man was with him … to question us individually,” Prange said. “The smaller man, perhaps 5 feet tall, was not like us … he had strange features, almost like a child who has aged rapidly. “He wore a hat, gloves, and he never spoke to us, never shook our hands, just observed. I don’t remember [the colonel] ever even saying thank you. When they left, we never heard from the Air Force again.” Prange added he never experienced anything like the February 1969 call again in his law enforcement career.

I made contact last night. One finally spoke to me. At least, I think… I will post what I can remember. I openly confess that my conscious mind is continually trying to convince me that this was a dream. I was lying in bed, somewhere between dream land and the waking world. Thoughts wandering. You know how it is. Suddenly, I became, as I often have in my lifetime, aware of a presence. This night, however, I was not struck by the paralysis. Not an involuntary one, however. I was so terrified I could barely move, but move, I could. I pulled myself up and huddled against the wall. My door creaked open and in walked a strange creature. In my previous posts, I have described these creatures as a-typical Greys. Small, hairless, enlarged eyes. The usual “Alien” image which has pervaded the human mind for centuries. This individual was different. He was tall. Above eight feet, he had to stoop to avoid hitting my ceiling with his head. His body was thin, very thin. I couldn’t see much of him, he turned his body so he was shrouded in darkness. His face was comparable to the beings which I have seen before, but it was ancient beyond anything I can describe. Withered and hard, but with an emotion I can only describe as softness in the corner of his massive, black eyes. He “spoke” to me, although no words left his mouth and I don’t think any left mine either, throughout the entirety of our conversation. I’m not even sure words encompass what I experienced. My room fell away and we were left in darkness. Flashes of colors, scenes from distant worlds I can’t describe in any way other than “fantastical.” Soaring skyscrapers, flashes of movement, bizarre creatures with too many eyes and limbs that moved like fluid, glass domes and red and gold skies over green oceans. He told me his name was “Prou,” pronounced “Prow,” (the spelling somehow appeared in my head) and he was pleased to finally meet me. I, in a moment of incredulity, extended my hand and he shook it with his. It felt strange, wooden in texture, but warm and soft. It enveloped my entire hand and he held it for a moment before telling me that it brought him joy to experience friendship with someone he had studied closely for so many years. He apologized for the many years of fright and assured me there was no need to be afraid.
He told me there was a purpose behind their visits – and the visits millions of other people around the world have, but are completely unaware of. He told me that they were not aware I could remember, not until they came across the memory of my last post about their visitations. Told me it made me an oddity in their eyes and unique in their experience, that I could accurately remember a real visit. I asked what he meant, and in a moment, I understood the reasoning behind Extra Terrestrial Encounters… To a degree, at least. As far as my limited human understanding could grasp. They harvest memories. They observe our world, our culture and our society through our eyes. He also told me that for some reason, when confronted with a visitation, the human mind will create memories that are not quite real (abduction stories) to adjust for the amount of fear they feel. The vast majority of people who are visited will never be aware of their visits. The human mind simply represses it. The ET’s themselves have no hand in making us forget – our mind does not want to remember, so it does not. My accurate memories of visits and contemplation of them makes me very unique in their books, it would seem. He told me that the Human race is unique in the universe in how young we are and yet how advanced we have become. In the past two thousand years, we have nearly caught up to their civilization, which is nearly twenty thousand years old. They are the greatest of this galaxy’s civilizations. We are accomplishing feats in decades which took them centuries to work out. As a result, they, and the other races of our galaxy, are afraid of us, but they want to understand us before they approach us.
As a by note, he told me that his civilization, nor any other, has yet to discover a way to travel to other galaxies. Nor have they made contact with any beings from another galaxy. It may be impossible. But they are hoping that we may unlock the secrets to intergalactic travel. He’s not sure, but his civilization believes that their rather unscrupulous, arrogant ancestors may have had a hand in our creation and evolution. It isn’t the first time they’ve come across a random world with beings that resemble themselves in a distant manner. They feel the need to watch over us as a result. They do not directly interfere, but they are constantly watching us in silence. He told me that our visits are purely scientific. Each of their subjects are injected with a biological particle – he admitted being impressed that I had thought of that possibility. The particle is quantum in nature. It phases in and out of this reality. It cannot be found unless you know how to find it. As a result, it is capable of storing massive amounts of information, but it cannot be read at a distance. They must be within three meters of the particle. Many people are “visited” from outside their dwellings – hence why there are videos of extraterrestrials outside windows, doors and in backyards. Our visits are information dumps from this “biological hard drive.” It stores our memories, thoughts and experiences. In harvesting this information, they have been able to greatly advance their own culture. His explanation was that humanity and humans as individuals are vastly more creative than their own. They are a logical people, and as such, have limitations. Humans, he said, are basically insane – and as a result, think so far out of the box that we end up inventing things far beyond our time. And we are so diverse that we devote massive amounts of time to thousands of projects – he said if we could breed out our aggression, we would be the only utopian society besides his own in the known galaxy.
They seek out unique individuals – those with genius intellect, the mentally unstable but still functional, the creative thinkers – and they observe their minds for the spark of innovation. They take our mundane, day to day ideas and they create each and every one of them. If you are one of their subjects, every crappy daydream invention you’ve come up with, they have made it, utilized it, improved it, tested it and either incorporated it into their lives or done away with it. In the past thousand years, we have improved their technology a thousand fold. They also plant ideas in our heads – ingrain their presence in our culture and lore in the hopes that we will accept them when we finally meet. And he told me to tell of our meeting. Told me I am a prized subject and that they have influenced my life, mind and body in ways I cannot comprehend. That they watch over me and many others like me since we were little children. We are star-children and we are their friends in their eyes. We have no need to fear them. He told me we would meet again soon and we would have much to discuss. Then… He asked if I wanted to come with him. Told me I could live a thousand years and see a thousand worlds. Never want for friendship or admirers. To my own surprise, I told him no. Although I have wanted nothing more than to traverse the stars and often daydream of other worlds… I’m not ready for that, and I have too much to live for here. Too many people I love that I could not bear to never see again. My children, my lover. I told him that maybe at the twilight of my life, I would be ready. He told me he understood, and in a moment I was back in bed and he was gone. I laid there a long time in a daze before coming back to reality. There is so much in my mind right now I want to share, but I don’t know how. NOTE: The above image is a rendering
Witness statement: I have been debating bringing something up for some time now. Some of you may look at me like I’m bat shit bonkers, but I hope I have proved my sanity and my intelligence over the years, at least enough for you to lend me some credence when I say something completely outlandish. I had a very long discussion with a good friend the other day and maybe it’s finally time to bring it forward. There is no way to ease into this conversation, so I’ll put it bluntly. I have had close encounters of the fourth kind. For many years, several times per year. For those of you who do not know what a CEFK is, it is prolonged close contact with an alien being. No, not a Mexican – an extra-terrestrial life form. And no, I have never been taken aboard a spaceship. I’ve never been probed. I’ve never been poked and prodded or the top of my head taken off and I’ve certainly never been seduced by an Alien Queen to save their dying race. They don’t do anything really. For nearly as long as I can remember, the first instance I can remember being at the age of four, I will have a visit from what I tend to refer to as a gentleman, three to five times a year… Every three months or so, usually, some times with an extra one thrown in. I wake up in the middle of the night in a panic for no apparent reason – very similar to what someone might call night terrors – instantly, fully awake, terrified, panicking, unable to move, unable to speak and unable to breathe, at least at first. The only thing I can control are my eyes and my breathing. And near me, maybe two or three feet away, is a small Grey. Now, Greys are what most individuals will recognize as a stereotypical Extra-Terrestrial. Small, smooth grey skin, big, almond-shaped jet black eyes, tiny nostrils, thin lipped mouth, usually hairless. They scare the daylights out of me. Even running across a photo of them awakens a nameless dread in my heart – odd thing? Only very SPECIFIC types of artist renderings or supposed photographs upset me. I can instantly tell if something is CGI or real – every time a new video comes out, I know months in advance if it is a hoax or ‘undeterminable.’ And there is a particular video on the internet that was deemed ‘undetermined’ that when I saw it, the thought that crossed my mind was innocent, but terrifying – “She’s just a baby. Let her go.” An unspoken rule of psychology – to know an infant, you must have observed an adult. To know a gender, you must have observed both. So that is very frightening to me on a very deep level. It is the first time I really considered that perhaps these occurrences were not nightmares or flights of fancy. Back to the gentleman in my room – he is older, I can tell that much. How, I’m not sure. He doesn’t do much. He observes me. Passes a hand over me now and then, but he never touches. He doesn’t poke or prod or anything of the sort. He simply observes. And occasionally, he will wave a hand about in the air, almost as though touching a computer screen – I think he’s indicating something to a computer in his head, perhaps something over his eyes – much like our own google glass. My waking state goes from petrification to irritation. There is no threat except for the fact that I am restricted. I cannot speak but at times, when I… How shall I say, think, at him, he usually stops and stares, cocks his head to the side and then makes another note. I’m not sure if he can understand my thoughts, but something does indicate that he can perhaps read my moods and my emotional level. I can understand snippets of his thoughts and emotions, I know that much. They aren’t so much words as occasional images – and no worries, no plans for world domination there. Just curiosity. Like I said, my first experience with this occurred when I was four years old. That is the only time I can remember there being more than one individual and the only time I can remember them physically touching me. Interesting note – this occurred during a period of time while I had the chicken pox. This has no relevance other than the fact that over the years, I have noticed that there are two scars on my stomach, just above my hip, that are perfectly identical to one another and have no similarity to any other chicken pox scar on my body. In fact, they appear to be tiny burn scars. I didn’t realize this until about two years ago, when I burnt myself with a cigarette ember. Most UFO conspiracists jump at this when I have discussions with them and tell me they probably left some sort of implant. I do not have any such thing anywhere in my body. I’ve had multiple x-rays, CT scans, MRI’s and the like. Never found anything unusual. But, I’ve always found the notion of them leaving something metal or ceramic in the body to be silly.
These are beings that can traverse the stars – they would be beyond these things. Even as primitive as we are compared to these beings, we are beginning to understand and utilize nano-technology and biological computers. Given that I have had several medical oddities occur in my life, I personally think that they may have injected nothing more than a few cells into my body that take readings and they can read when they are in close proximity to me. It would certainly explain why they run their hands through the air above me. Reading something magnetic, perhaps. Also, radio equipment sometimes behaves strangely in my presence. These medical oddities aren’t something to be laughed at, either. I have never broken a bone in a serious way, even though I have been in many serious accidents, my knuckles a few times in fights, my knee cap in what should have been a fatal, 90 mph accident while not wearing a seat belt. My wounds heal at rates that are about twice as fast as predicted by professionals. I was born with Asperger’s Syndrome. I went through a childhood that, in a general consensus, should have left me a serial killer or a pedophile or a rapist. I was on so many prescription drugs as a child that it stunted my growth. I was under five feet tall until I was 15, 16 years old. When I reached that age – my depression became self manageable. I took myself off over 120 mg’s of Ritalin a day, over 30 mg’s of Paxil a day, 10 mg’s of Abilify a day and 50 mg’s of Zoloft a day without any withdrawals or negative side effects – all on the same day. I grew to 6 foot 2 inches in a year and put on about 120 lbs of muscle. My Asperger’s became manageable and truthfully, hardly noticeable. My creative levels jumped through the roof – I was suddenly able to draw, paint, work with ceramic. I could look at patterns and discern things that nobody else could see was there. My intelligence level leaped from near Genius to well above Genius status. I hardly ever get sick. Family members around me will be sick for three weeks at a time while I will be sick for two to three days with the same symptoms. What does any of that have to do with anything? I’m not sure. But that is when the visitations went from 1 – 2 a year to 3 – 5 times per year. That the visitations jumped from maybe half an hour to an hour at a time to a full three to four hours at a time. I’m convinced there is a connection between the increase in visits and length and my unusual physiology. That for some reason or other, they took an interest in keeping me alive for observation. So this leaves the question of why. Why me? Possibly exactly because of my childhood. That for some reason or other, what I lived through did NOT change me into a delusional psychotic set on killing people. Perhaps they are interested in autistic individuals, perhaps Asperger’s individuals specifically. I’ve always been a little off. A little different. And that certainly fits into my ideas of what they are – they are not so different from us. Corporations and big pharm aside, pure scientists do not interfere with nature. They go out, they tranquilize, tag and release and then visit their subjects once in a while to better understand them. I view what they are doing to me as no different. As harmless observation and data gathering. And I don’t mind that. Having said that – when a scientist comes across a unique specimen, they pay extra attention to it and give it extra good care, perhaps even to the point of protecting it so they can learn as much about it as they are able. I just wish they’d talk to me instead of restraining me. But, as my friend pointed out – I would be a very large specimen. I am big, fast, powerful and intelligent. Bears can be tamed, yes? But you don’t go up to it in the wild, hand it a cigarette and discuss politics with it. You protect yourself any way you can until it is used to your presence. I hope, one day, that my curiosity to converse with them will overpower the fear I have while they are in my presence and maybe, just maybe, they’ll let their guard down. Anyway… That’s my crazy tale. Think of it what you will. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
On the evening of July 14,1952, a Pan American World Airways DC-4 was on a routine flight, ferrying from New York to Miami with ten passengers and a crew of three, including, Captain F. V. Koepke, First Officer William B. Nash and Second Officer William H. Fortenberry. The sun had set an hour before though the coastline was still visible, and the night was clear and almost entirely dark. With the aircraft set on automatic pilot, while cruising at 8000 feet over the Chesapeake Bay approaching Norfolk, Virginia, they were due to over fly the VRF radio range station in six minutes and make a position report. In the mean time, since this was Fortenberry’s first run on this course, Nash, in the left pilot’s seat, was orientating Fortenberry by pointing out landmarks and the distant lights of the cities along the route. Nash had just pointed out the city of Newport News and Cumberland, ahead and to the right of the plane, when unexpectedly a red-orange brilliance appeared near the ground, beyond and slightly east of Newport News. The brilliance seemed to have appeared all of a sudden and both pilots witnessed the startling appearance at practically the same moment. In the excitement someone blurted out, “What the hell is that?” Captain Nash later described their initial observations… “Almost immediately we perceived that it consisted of six bright objects streaking toward us at tremendous speed, and obviously well below us. They had the fiery aspect of hot coals, but of much greater glow, perhaps twenty times more brilliant than any of the scattered ground lights over which they passed or the city lights to the right. Their shape was clearly outlined and evidently circular; the edges were well defined, not phosphorescent or fuzzy in the least and the red-orange color was uniform over the upper surface of each craft.” “Within the few seconds that it took the six objects to come half the distance from where we had first seen them, we could observe that they were holding a narrow echelon formation, a stepped-up line tilted slightly to our right with the leader at the lowest point, and each following craft slightly higher. At about the halfway point, the leader appeared to attempt a sudden slowing. We received this impression because the second and third wavered slightly and seemed almost to overrun the leader, so that for a brief moment during the remainder of their approach the positions of these three varied. It looked very much as if an element of “human” or “intelligence” error had been introduced, in so far as the following two did not react soon enough when the leader began to slow down and so almost overran him.” What occurred next utterly astonished the pilots. The procession shot forward like a stream of tracer bullets, out over the Chesapeake Bay to within a half-mile of the plane. Realizing that the line was going to pass under the nose of the plane and to the right of the copilot, Nash quickly unfastened his seat belt so that he could move to the window on that side. During this interval, Nash briefly lost sight of the objects, though Fortenberry kept them in view below the plane and both would later recollect.
“All together, they flipped on edge, the sides to the left going up and the glowing surface facing right. Though the bottom surfaces did not become clearly visible, we had the impression that they were unlighted. The exposed edges, also unlighted, appeared to be about 15 feet thick, and the top surface, at least, seemed flat. The shape and proportion, they were much like coins. While all were in the edgewise position, the last five slid over and past the leader so that the echelon was now tail-foremost, so to speak, the top or last craft now being nearest to our position.” This shift had taken only a brief second and was completed by the time Nash reached the window. Both pilots then observed the discs flip back from on-edge to the flat position and the entire line dart off to the West in a direction that formed a sharp angle with their initial course, holding the new formation. The pilots had noticed that the objects seemed to dim slightly just prior to the abrupt angular turn and had brightened considerably after making it. Attempting to describe the objects extreme actions, Nash proposed, “The only descriptive comparison we can offer is a ball ricocheting off a wall.” An instant later, two more identical objects darted out past the right wing, from behind and under the airplane at the same altitude as the others and quickly fell in behind the receding procession. They observed that these two seemed to glow considerably brighter than the others, as though applying power to catch up. As they stared after them dumbfounded, suddenly the lights of all of the objects blinked out, only to reappear a moment later, maintaining low altitude out across the blackness of the bay, until about 10 miles beyond Newport News when they began climbing in a graceful arc that carried them well above the plane’s altitude. Sweeping upward they randomly blinked out and finally vanished in the dark night sky. Describing the disappearance of the objects some years later, Nash wrote, “As they climbed, they oscillated up and down behind one another in a irregular fashion, as though they were extremely sensitive to control. In doing this, they went vertically past one another, bobbing up and down, (just as the front three went horizontally past one another, as the initial six approached us. This appeared to be an intelligence error, ‘lousing up the formation’)—they disappeared by blinking out in a mixed-up fashion, in no particular order.” NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
The F.B.I. was so overwhelmed with sightings of flying saucers in the 1940s that agents routinely destroyed reports because of lack of filing space, according to documents released by the organization. The policy is outlined in a memo sent on 16 August 1949 to J Edgar Hoover, the director of the bureau, along with documents on UFOs compiled by agents after statements from witnesses. The note, sent by an unnamed FBI agent in San Antonio, Texas, states that the office destroyed UFO reports on the grounds that they arrived “in great numbers” and contained “nothing of FBI interest”. “It is pointed out that the filing of these would result in the rapid accumulation of very bulky files,” the memo continues. The documents are among a batch of papers related to UFO sightings that has been made available through The Vault, the FBI’s online records database. In one intriguing note, sent on 22 March 1950, special agent Guy Hottel, head of the FBI’s Washington field office, wrote to Hoover with information on three “so-called flying saucers” that a witness claimed had crash-landed in New Mexico. According to the memo, an air force investigator stated that three flying saucers had been recovered in the area, along with the bodies of the alien crews. The memo goes on to add: “Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only three feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and test pilots.”According to the witness, the saucers were brought down by a “high-powered government radar” in the area that interfered with the spaceships’ controls. “No further evaluation was attempted,” the memo concludes. In 1947, an object that may have been a weather balloon crash-landed near Roswell, New Mexico, sparking an ongoing conspiracy that US officials captured an alien spacecraft. In a separate incident, Hoover received an urgent teletype message from FBI agents in Salt Lake City, Utah, describing what appeared to be an explosion in the sky that was followed by “the falling of a silver-coloured object.” The sighting, recorded on 5 April 1949 by a guard at the army general supply depot in Ogden, Utah, was reported independently by a military officer and also a highway patrolman, who claimed to see a silver object explode as it approached mountains at Sardine Canyon.

An extraordinary UFO sighting was reported one night in March, 1958, during the Algerian War, at a Foreign Legion camp at Bouamama in the Sud Constantinois. The sole witness. Legionnaire N.G., was on sentry duty outside the camp. The site where he was consisted of a fortified emplacement dug out of the ground, lightly armored and equipped with a telephone connected to the camp. The night was cloudless and the moon was shining. All was silent on the desert landscape. No large-scale operations were being carried out in the area at the time so N.G., who had been in the Legion for three years, was not feeling especially anxious. He was sitting on the ground near the trench, and had his rifle. If anything unexpected happened he was supposed either to fire his rifle or call the camp by telephone. Suddenly, at a few minutes after 0.30 hours, something did happen. What it was that happened, we cannot say for sure. The witness remembers seeing a positive, physical phenomenon of enormous size. But he feels that something most unusual happened to him psychologically. And he freely admits that there might well be a difference between what he sincerely remembers and what actually took place. It began with a whistling noise, the sort of noise you hear if you blow into the neck of a bottle. This sound seemed to him to be coming down from the sky. He immediately looked up, and saw an enormous, roundish object descending. It stopped when it was about 35-40 meters (roughly 100 to 120 ft.) above the ground, and began to hover there, motionless and silent. He estimated it to be as much as 350 meters wide (1,000 ft.). As seen by him slightly from below, during the arrival and take-off phases, it seemed to be elliptical in shape, quite independently of the perspective effect that makes a disc look elliptical when observed from a point outside the disc’s center-line.
Its span might, he thought, have been in the neighborhood of 250 meters. He estimated the distance between himself and the nearest edge of the object at little more than 50 meters (150 ft.). When I asked Monsieur N.G. to extend his arms towards the ends of the object as he recalled seeing it, he held them out at an angle of about 100 between them. This estimate would fit quite well with the estimates given above of its size and its distance from him. The object was surrounded by pale green light, and an intense conical beam of emerald-green light was coming from the center of the under-part towards the ground. Legionnaire N.G. did not fire his rifle, nor did he pick up the telephone. He just remembers staring at the object for 45 to 50 minutes. The pale green and emerald colors were the most beautiful, relaxing and fascinating colors he had ever seen. Legionnaire N.G. had forgotten all about the war. All nervous or psychological tension had gone from his mind. He was just feeling happy. Then came the noise again, like somebody blowing into a bottle, and the object started rising gently, until it had reached a height of about I(K) or 120 meters. Then it flew offal tremendous speed towards the North-West, climbing as it went. What the Legionnaire then felt was a sort of sadness at the disappearance of this beautiful sight. After a few minutes this feeling began to fade, yielding place to a return of his ordinary state of consciousness, until his full mental faculties were back. He quickly picked up the telephone and reported what he had seen. To his great amazement however the officer at the camp simply replied in the manner: “Alright. We’ll see about it tomorrow morning.” Greatly disappointed at the officer’s reaction, N.G. continued his watch until he was relieved by another man in the early hours of the morning. He again reported his experience, and this time more attention was paid to him. Some of his superiors were inclined to believe his story, because N.G., then aged 28, was a well-respected soldier and was considered serious and reliable. The majority however thought it was just a case of psychological trouble caused by the tough conditions of war in the desert. A careful investigation was carried out at the scene of the sighting. N.G. recalls with a smile that the officers even examined the sand with a magnifying lens. No footprints, no marks, no alien material was found in the area, and no smell either. Probably more for medical than for “ufological” reasons, the witness was thoroughly questioned by officers. He stuck to his original story, and the affair was considered to be quite amazing. He was sent lo the Military Hospital at Val dc Grace in Paris. There he was kept for a week under dose scrutiny by neurologists and psychiatrists. An electroencephalogram revealed nothing unusual. The conclusion of all the doctors was that N.G. was in a slate of good physical and mental health. He had not been notably affected by the strains caused by wartime service in Algeria. He had no tendency towards drinking, and was considered to be competent for service in the Foreign Legion, which means an especially hard way of life. Indeed, no man with a tendency towards dreaming or science-fiction, or with an over-developed imagination or analytical, critical mind would he selected for service in the Legion.

On Friday, February 5, 1971, two young men from Kinnula. Petter Aliranta (21) and Esko Juhani Sneck (18), were working in the woods of the village of Kangaskyla in Kinnula, near the borders of the counties of Middle Finland and Vaasa. At about 3.00 p.m. they were about to end their work, for the cloudy day was slowly turning dark. Aliranta had just turned off his motor saw, when he suddenly noticed a strange metallic-looking object at tree-top level which was descending straight down. It had the shape of two saucers on top of each other and was about 5 metres in diameter. At the bottom of the vehicle there were four thin (5-10 cms.) landing feet, more than 2 metres long. Within a few moments the object descended in a small opening between the trees, about 15 metres away from Aliranta and Sneck. The last-mentioned, however, did not notice what was going on at this time as he was still busy cutting branches off a tree with his motor saw. During the descent, a round opening appeared in the centre of the underpart of the UFO, and from this, immediately the vehicle had settled firmly on the ground, a strange little being glided down. It actually did glide down those two metres to the snow-covered ground; there was no normal falling movement. After this, the being started approaching Aliranta. Its movements were very stiff and the steps short. The being looked like a space-man, or robot, and was less than 1 metre tall, perhaps 90 cms. The body was covered with a one-piece suit of a green colour. The head had the same cover, and in the middle of it was a sort of lens facing forwards. The hands were round at the tips and no fingers could be seen. The “boots'” at the feet were a uniform part of the dress, and green as well. The humanoid seemed to move in a strange way on top of the snow surface; it did not go down into the deep snow as one would have expected. As this entity was slowly but steadily advancing towards Aliranta, he started his motor saw and began to approach the strange walker with motor saw in hand.
At this point, Esko Sneck also became aware of the strange happenings; the turning on of the motor saw had made him turn around to see what Aliranta was up to. “The little green man” and Aliranta were approaching each other, the distance between them now less than 10 metres. Suddenly the being turned around and started eventually to go back towards the saucer. This made Aliranta braver, and he hurried to catch the humanoid. Within the saucer, other entities were now visible; there were three “windows” on the topside of the vehicle (about 1 metre wide) and through one on the right side three moving forms were visible, humanlike, although no features or details could be seen. As Petter Aliranta was about to get hold of the humanoid, when about 3 metres from the saucer, it rose into the air in a strange way, floating towards the opening from which it had come. The humanoid having risen to more than 1 metre above the ground, Aliranta reached out quickly and grabbed hold of the heel of the right “boot” with his bare right hand. However, he had lo let go of the foot right away as it burned like a hot iron (the wounds caused by the burning on the thumb, forefinger and inside of the hand were still clearly visible two months later). At the same time, Aliranta automatically took a couple of steps backwards, so the entity was able lo glide back into the craft undisturbed. The moment the humanoid had got into the saucer, the latter started to give a slight humming or buzzing sound, and it slowly started to ascend from the ground. Aliranta felt a weak gust of air at this moment, but no smoke or smell could be detected, nor any light phenomenon (there were no lights visible on or in the vehicle during the incident). As the saucer rose upwards the round opening at the bottom closed (but the landing feet kept their position) and within some fifteen seconds the whole object had disappeared into the sky.
According to the eye-witnesses, the visit of this strange craft lasted at least three minutes. After the saucer had disappeared the men could not talk, for they were too amazed by the whole incident. They felt stiff all over and had some difficulty in moving, especially Petter Aliranta. It took them close on one hour before they were able to walk away from the woods. Before they left they had a closer look at the markings left in the snow, evidence of this incredible happening. At the end of each landing foot there had been a round plate. These plates had penetrated the full depth of the snow cover (then about 40 cms.), leaving four round prints (about 35 cms. across) in an even square with a side of about 2 metres. Within this square the snow had melted some 5-10 cms. on the surface. The footsteps left by the humanoid were also clearly visible. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
