Intriguing globe-like sighting comes to us from Chronometer Magazine regarding an incident from Ivanovo in Russia on 1st January 2004. As they had only had a little champagne to celebrate the new year, the main witness, along with two friends, put on their coats and decided to take a quick walk around the streets to soak in the festivities taking place.
However, as they were doing so they noticed a “large orange sphere” that was not only overhead but appeared to be heading toward them. What’s more, it was descending as it did so. The three witnesses stared in fascination and nervousness at the object before one of them suddenly noticed that a strange humanoid figure – that appeared to have a snout in place of a nose – was watching them from several yards away.
Even more bizarre, however, was what happened next. The strange figure, which appeared to be smiling at the group menacingly, suddenly turned around. When it did so, though, it appeared to be completely flat. The witness would later state it appeared as though “it had been run over by an asphalt roller”.
Suddenly, an “invisible wave” hit the man sending him falling to the ground as if he had been physically pushed. He appeared to black out momentarily as the next thing he knew the figure nor the glowing orange sphere were no longer there. Even stranger, while his two friends saw the glowing sphere, they couldn’t recall it disappearing. Nor did they see the strange “flat” humanoid”.
This particular account has many insinuations that these spherical crafts, and perhaps even the occupants are not as real – at least as we might understand the word – as we think they are. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This event remains as one of Europe’s unsolved UFO cases. It began at about 8:30 AM, September 10, 1990, when the first sighting of a spherical, metallic object with legs was made. The object was either moving very slowly, or hovering in the sky at a low altitude.
A group of school children heading to class saw the object first. The youngsters probably imagined they were seeing a strange sort of balloon. Soon, other local residents also spotted the unusual flying object. Some early observers could only liken the object to a ‘turtle with legs.’
The object was reflecting the early morning sun, which caused on-lookers to surmise the object was made of some type of metal. In a short period of time, as many as 25 witnesses were observing the UFO.
Local residents were surprised and even frightened by the sight of the UFO. Some even tried throwing rocks at the object, in an attempt to shoo it away. Soon four pictures would be taken, forever documenting the event for posterity and further study by UFO students.
Manuel Gomes, sitting at a local diner, was soon told of the sightings. He was a photojournalist and worked with the Morning Journal News. He quickly gathered his camera and rushed to the location of the latest reported sighting.
He managed to take four photographs of the object. He was unable to identify the object as anything he had seen before. He turned over his report and photographic negatives to the CNIFO research group, who began an investigation into the events of the day.
After about an hour, the unidentified object finally flew away into the horizon, leaving many questions as to its origin and purpose. As researchers began to discuss the sightings, various theories were offered.
The photographs taken by Gomes were examined and found not to have been tampered with. What was seen in the Alfena skies was exactly what was on his photographs. The big mystery was: what was the object?
Of the many theories offered, the most plausible was that the object was some type of observation device, possibly launched by the military. However, the military claimed to have nothing in the air at that time and location.
The case of the Alfena, Portugal craft remains unsolved to this day.
On the evening of 11th November 1979, after a four-hour delay, the TAE Super Caravelle airliner, Flight JK-297 left Salzburg in Austria on its way to Las Palmas. After refueling in Mallorca, the plane retook to the skies on its way to its final destination.
However, at around 11 pm, the crew would receive a transmission from the Barcelona control tower. They would request that the plane switch to their emergency frequency as they had detected an emergency signal in the area. Realizing something out of the ordinary must have occurred, the captain, Javier Lerdo de Tejada switched to the requested frequency. As he was doing so, the navigator of the plane claimed there looked to be “something to the left” of the plane.
The rest of the crew turned their attention to their left-hand side. Immediately they noticed two strange red lights in the sky with them. And what’s more, they appeared to be heading in their direction.
Tejada would immediately request information from the control tower concerning the rapidly approaching objects. However, they would reply that they could see nothing at all on the radar systems apart from their plane.
With the tower unable to see the approaching glowing objects, Tejada made the decision to take the situation into his own hands.
An Emergency Landing Due To The Pursuit Of A UFO
After several moments, Tejada would change the course of the plane so as to avoid the oncoming lights. He would also begin to bring the plane down slightly. As he did so, he would radio the control tower at the nearby airport in Manises, Valencia and request permission to make an emergency landing.
All the while, the crew of Flight JK-297 maintained visual contact with the red lights. To their concern, the light also changed their direction and was continuing in pursuit of the aircraft. They would maintain this pursuit to around 50 kilometers of the Manises runway before suddenly changing direction again and breaking away from the chase.
At around 11:45 pm, over half an hour before the lights were first viewed, the plane touched down at its impromptu destination. However, while the two lights had indeed broken away from the chase, the plane’s radar immediately picked up three other anomalous signals.
What’s more, several other witnesses would report seeing the lights with their own eyes. These would include several airport employees who would light up the emergency runway thinking another plane was about to make an emergency landing.
Shortly after JK-Flight 297 came to a stop on the runway at Manises the passengers would leave the plane. Their journey would continue the following day. The Spanish Air Force, meanwhile, had become aware of the mysterious activity. And what’s more, they were preparing to take matters into their own hands.
A “Truncated-Cone Shaped” Object!
A little after midnight, from the Los Llanos Airbase, a Mirage F1 would head out into the night skies in search of these strange glowing crafts. Captain Fernando Camara was the pilot. And the flight he would undertake was certainly one he will likely not forget.
Although he would have to reach speeds of Mach 1.4, he would eventually announce visual confirmation of the lights. What’s more, the lights appeared to be part of a “truncated cone shape” which featured an extremely bright changing color. However, before Camara could get close enough to reveal any other details, the object disappeared out of sight proving much too fast for the Mirage F1.
A short time later, however, he would receive another radar signal. Once more, he would obtain visual confirmation of the same or similar object. This time, however, as he approached it, he would find that his flight systems were locked and out of control. Once more the strange object vanished into the distance. As it did so, the fighter jet’s systems returned to normal.
Camara would stay airborne for around 90 minutes before finally giving up the chase and heading back to base. The last confirmed location of the object was somewhere off the Spanish coast. It was heading toward the north coast of the African continent.
What the objects were, remains a mystery? As does what the purpose of their visit was. The account and ensuing investigation, however, would certainly throw up a mountain of possibilities.
It Wasn’t An Airplane!
The aftermath of the sighting was perhaps as interesting (and possibly telling) as the incident itself. Despite attempts to maintain a low profile over the strange events of 11th November 1979, including asking all airline staff not to speak about the incident publicly, it became increasingly harder to do so. So much so, that less than a year later in September 1980, the Spanish Parliament would publicly demand an investigation and explanation of the incident.
Journalist and eventual author of the book Incidente en Manises, J J Benitez would eventually speak with Captain Tejada. He would later claim that the pilot looked “very tired”, obviously a result of the bizarre incident.
He would state to Benitez that he wasn’t sure what the object was. However, he knew it wasn’t a conventional plane. Tejada would draw attention to the fact that he had over 8,000 hours in the air. And consequently had a good knowledge of aircraft. The fact their plane captured the lights on the radar suggested to Tejada that it “should have been some kind of metal”.
Ultimately, the captain would state, “the first thing we take into account is flight safety”.
And while Tejada himself made the decision to land the plane, it was the Spanish Air Force who suspected something untoward was in the skies over Manises. So much so, they would keep Flight JK-297 grounded until the following day.
The second pilot on the flight, Ramon Zuazo, would corroborate Tejada’s version of events. He would claim “we saw some unknown flying object”.
A Distinct Feel Of A Cover-Up
The previously mentioned book by Benitez is a great dissection of the case. And also cuts through the attempts to downplay (at best) and cover-up (at worst) the incident. The writer would state that the whole of Valencia was akin to a media circus such was the interest.
What’s more, the journalist also quickly picked up how the local and national newspapers would put any news regarding the incident across in completely different ways. This would depend on whether the source of the information was from a civilian or a military person.
What perhaps made matters even worse, certainly in the immediate aftermath, was that many of the passengers began to publicly doubt the reason the plane landed. Their suspicions were that after the original delay another (or perhaps the same) fault came to light.
This forced them to land and delay again. This would have surely put the company at risk of being liable for compensation. It was the suspicion so many of the passengers at the time that the UFO encounter was concocted. And was done so to avoid just such a scenario. Interestingly or not, not one of the passengers would come forward to claim they had witnessed anything strange.
The aviation authorities would quickly dismiss the passengers’ claims. They would ultimately praise the crew for their decisive action in such an unusual situation.
At around 6 pm on the evening of 24th January 2003, another sighting of a triangular object in the Ontario would unfold. This time in the Kingston region. The witness, who would withhold her name, would speak at length with UFO researcher and investigator, Peter Davenport. He would, incidentally, describe her as an “exceptional witness” and certainly someone with credibility.
At the time of the incident, she was driving in her car along Highway 15. She would recall how it was a particularly cold night with the skies long since darkened. However, with the music from her car’s cassette player filling the vehicle’s interior, she suddenly noticed something out of place in the sky that caught her attention.
She would describe this anomaly as “two, round, white lights” that were “much bigger than any (of the) stars”. And what’s more, the lights were heading toward her. She would quickly scan her immediate surroundings and, realizing hers was the only vehicle on the road, she would bring her speed down to around 15 miles per hour, perhaps a little less.
She brought her attention back to the object which was now significantly closer. The witness would claim the lights now appeared “like big bus headlights in the sky”. It was certainly something that she had not seen before. As she continued to watch the approaching lights, she noticed a third, smaller red light. It would “start on the inside left and blinked its way to the right”. And it would do so repeatedly. This, then, would suggest that the lights were very much attached to a much larger, solid object.
As the object continued to descend – now only several feet above the treetops – the witness would turn her car headlights to full beam. She would state she wished to “get a better look” at the approaching craft. At the same time, she brought the car to a virtual crawl along the lonely highway.
It was at this point that she could clearly see the object was a “black equilateral triangle”. What’s more, at each point of the triangle was a “large white dome light”. This would “glow”, almost in a throbbing way.
The witness would wind the window down in the car door so she could get an unobstructed view of the object. As she did so, she was indeed able to notice the underside of the object more clearly. Perhaps of more significance, though, is the direction the witness reported the object was going – towards the Kingston Mills Locks.
Once more, we have a close proximity UFO sighting which is heading toward a body of water. And what’s more, at least according to some researchers, locks are a particularly interesting place as they often disguise entrances to the inner world. We will come back to this later.
Regarding the object itself, she would recall how it was of a dark grey color, “almost shadow-like”. Perhaps of more intrigue, though, was the detail that attached to the underside of the object was a “very distinct 3-Dimensional black shape”. What’s more, this black shape had “arrow-like points” as opposed to the rounded edges of the main object. She would further describe it as being like “something out of a Star Trek movie”. The witness, though, was also questioning whether she might have stumbled under the flight path of a top-secret military aircraft. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On the evening of March 8, 1994, residents of Southwest Michigan began seeing strange things in the skies over Lake Michigan to the south of Holland. Blue, white, red, and green lights, sometimes attached to cylindrical objects, and sometimes performing unusual maneuvers, were reported.
911 operators began receiving calls at around 9:30 p.m. about something that looked like “a string of Christmas lights way up in the sky.” It wasn’t just a few people reporting these things; it was counties all up and down Lake Michigan. Some sources said 300 witnesses, including several police officers, saw the lights.
There were so many reports that one of the Ottawa County 911 operators decided to call the National Weather Service radar operator at Muskegon. The conversations that 911 had with the NWS operator were taped and later made their way into the media. The radar operator’s voice could be heard describing abrupt movements of the object and multiple objects appearing on the radar screen.
He said that what he was seeing could not be precipitation, especially at that height. One object was tracked moving twenty miles in ten seconds.
Holland police officer Jeff Vellhouse spoke to the operator of the Muskegon radar that picked up the radar tracks:
“He said he had three things on his radar, and they were in a triangular shape. He said they hovered over Holland and moved southwest. He said that one would move out of the triangular pattern, then move back in.”
The radar operator also reported: “There were three and sometimes four blips, and they weren’t planes. Planes show as pinpoints on the scope, these were the size of half a thumbnail. They were from 5 to 12,000 feet at times, moving all over the place. Three were moving toward Chicago. I never saw anything like it before, not even when I’m doing severe weather.”
It was said that there was no NWS written or taped records of the radar contacts themselves, but Dave Reinhart of BIMUP (Bureau of Investigators of Mysteries & Unusual Phenomena) claimed to have received copies of the NWS radar operator’s report in late 1994. He also said that he had talked to an individual referred to as “Fred”, who worked at Area 51 and who had knowledge that what occurred on the night of March 8, 1994 was some sort of rendezvous of UFOs from the east, west, north, and south.
Scott Ruiter of Grand Haven saw the lights in Grand Haven Township at 10:30 p.m. March 7: “It looked like about five airplanes following each other fairly closely. One would blink, then the other, other and other, right to left,”
The National Weather Service later tried to downplay the radar trackings: “There is no relation between the UFOs and the radar tracks,” said Dean Gulezian, the weather service’s area manager for Michigan. Gulezian said that although the radar did show some echoes, one key thing is the eyewitnesses saw these things at tree-top level, while the radar echoes were from an altitude of 10,000 feet or higher.” (Note above where the first witnesses reported seeing something like a string of Christmas lights “way up in the sky”)
Randee Murphy and her husband, of Ada Township, observed a “huge” shape for about two minutes as it flew slowly about 100 feet over the woods outside their home. “It had four lights,” she said, and “made a soft, whirring noise. It sounded like a single jet engine.” The Michigan flap continued for several days, presumably ending on the 10th. The sightings were never adequately explained.
Mongo, IN, is located approximately 40 miles NNW of Fort Wayne, approximately 5 miles from the Michigan border. The prime witness (referred to as JK) was an area fire supervisor for the Forest Management Division, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, residing in Jackson, MI. DB was the firefighter from Howell, MI who took the pictures. FB: Cass City, MI, retired, Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
One of the witnesses was a retired Michigan State Trooper from Carroll, MI. Another was a retiree from the U.S. Postal Service. The latter did not think the object was a UFO. There was one other witness, six in all. The sighting was brief, estimated at 1-3 minutes. Six men, all retirees from age 45 on up, were sitting around a campfire at the Trading Post Campgrounds at Mongo, IN, on Wednesday, August 31st, 1994. The time was approximately 8:30 PM, Indiana time; 9:30 PM Michigan time (EDT).
The UFO Filter Center at Mt. Vernon, IN (also HQ for the Indiana Group, MUFON) received the initial report on 10/07/94, by phone. FIT Linda Dahlkemper had called me (State Director) at 11:00 AM. On the 21st, UFOFC received blow-ups of two photos, #8 and #9, drawings by the prime witness, and some news clippings.
The photos were impressive. Although the images were small and taken at night, one photo looked very much like the famous Trindade Island photo. I attempted contact with Jeff Sainio, Photo Analyst, left message on his recorder.
At approximately 10:00 AM, on 10/22, I conducted a taped telephone interview with the prime witness (JK). A letter and six Form 1’s were sent to the prime witness. I requested witness send copy of photos to me AND Jeff Sainio. The following are notes taken from the phone conversation:
“Off to the southwest it looked like the moon, glowing through the treetops, and it was low. I said, ‘that can’t be the moon’, ’cause we are in the last phase. (Moon not visible anyway). Then it started moving. Then it moved right out from behind the trees into an open area near a road and hovered toward us. And it was clear as can be.
It was a flying saucer, just that vivid. The object glided into our area at a shallow angle, turned toward us and began to hover. Standing still, the white glow turned transparent. It looked like a white strobe light on the top of the dome. A bright red flash of light under the bottom flashed 3 or 4 times like a strobe and it disappeared to the south and east very quickly, within 2 seconds.”
Before it had gone they got at least four good pictures. One of the individuals who was taking pictures around the campfire that night had a Vivitar fully automatic 35 mm camera, loaded with 400 ASA color film. He was instructed to grab his camera and shoot. He had been out West with a fire crew, fighting fires and had taken pictures out there. The lens was standard, not telephoto.
Newspaper accounts show at least two other good witnesses (the Martins) testifying that this was no blimp. Reports of a blimp (Family Channel) in area. Finally, a man, his wife, and two daughters saw the same or similar object at Hamilton, IN, and took videos. Their sighting was at 8:45 PM and a little over 20 miles SE of Mongo. The object was less than 100′ up and there was no sound. Although some of video was erased, the object in one scene is large, pear shaped, and definitely not a conventional object.
A drawing was supplied with the blow-ups of negatives #8 & #9, and witness states that this is what the UFO looked like, as it was very bright and coming in, first like the moon. Object had panels that could be seen when the object was due south. He says drawing/photos don’t do justice to the actual event. There was absolutely no noise. Three dogs did not react in any way.
He was out hunting the next day and actually saw the Family Channel Blimp that others had reported. “There is no way in hell (that) we saw a blimp that night.”
The object they saw and photographed on the 31st was no further than 1/4 mile away, and from 500′ high to as low as 100′ at one point. Witness then states the object was more vivid when first coming in. Apparently the object was receding on subsequent shots. At first he thought the object to be a bright meteor. It didn’t take long for them to realize that the object was not a meteor. In negative #4 & #5 you “can see a distinct line right around the center”, he said.
Source Test, Natural: All natural sources were eliminated. An EZC Skyplot for Mongo coordinates during time slot shows three planets as conspicuous targets. Jupiter and Venus were in the SW, Saturn was in the SE. Description of object, movement, and number of witnesses precludes a misidentification of an astronomical object.
Also, an on-site investigation by John Timmerman of CUFOS failed to show any other natural source that might explain the sighting.
Source Test, Man-Made: Advertising, commercial, military, and private aircraft eliminated. A blimp seemed possible. Witness testimony appeared to rule this out. Later analysis by Dr. Richard Haines effectively ruled out any type of blimp or any other source. We had already eliminated a balloon, fixed structure, hoax (on witness or by witnesses).
Twelve witnesses were reliable, object was real, description and photos (and a video) indicate an unidentified craft was in the area, along with a possible blimp.
Evaluation: Unidentified craft. Berliner Strangeness Scale: 2 (Night object); Berliner Credibility Scale: 7 (Still photo(s) by professional). Speiser Strangeness Factor: S5 (Highly strange; suggests intelligent guidance); Speiser Credibility Scale: P5 (Highly credible, leaving almost no doubt).
The self-luminous aerial object seen and photographed at Mongo, Indiana on August 31, 1994, has remained unidentified after the various evaluations cited above. On the one hand, its overall shape and flight characteristics are not unlike many scores of other UFO reported for more than fifty years from around the world, many of which were captured on photographs.
On the other hand, a blimp definitely was seen during the night of August 31, 1994 in the Mongo area. The aerial object photographed cannot be positively identified at this time. It remains a UFO. The witnesses also claim the object at one point was less than 100′ over them, was as big as a football field, and made no noise!
Hi Ken: I had an incredible signing today. I was in the back garden sky watching and I had just zoomed in on a clear blue part of the sky with my Nikon P900 camera, when all of a sudden a saucer shaped craft flew directly into view. I was looking through the viewfinder at the time and I was very surprised by what I saw. I really wasn’t expecting to see any UFOs that close up. I was totally amazed. I could see that the surface of the saucer was very dirty looking like it was covered in soot, but what really caught my eye was the fact that I could see some sort of violet coloured energy being discharged from the back of the saucer shaped craft as it moved forwards through the air. I had never seen anything quite like it before. I could hardly believe what I was seeing… I quickly took a photograph of the saucer while moving the camera to follow the saucer as it flew across the sky. I was trying my best to hold the camera steady but it was almost impossible at such high magnification. The saucer then increased it’s speed and unfortunately I lost sight of it. I tried to reacquire the saucer in the viewfinder of the camera but it was no good, it was gone. The saucer had been at a very high altitude and I definitely wouldn’t of seen it without my Nikon P900 camera. It was just sheer luck that I was already zoomed in to that part of the sky when the saucer had flown in to view. What on earth could this strange unidentified saucer craft be? The photograph was taken at 10:58 AM on the 11th of March 2020 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

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

SAN FRANCISCO — An airline transport pilot with 14 years’ experience in commercial aviation can’t quite explain what he saw at 11 PM, November 3, 2004. The jetliner P.A. was flying was making its approach into San Francisco.
The jetliner was approaching the city from the east, passing just north of Stockton, when P.A. received instructions from the tower to descend from 35,000 to 24,000 feet (10,500 to 7,200 meters). And then it happened.
“While approaching San Francisco from the east,” he reported, “an orange dot began to glow and seemed to flash higher up to the west of us. I thought that it was a planet. It then changed color from orange to white. Again, I thought a planet could be illuminated through a (local) atmosphere that would explain the color change.”
“It then began to move in a northeasterly direction. Once again, being in an airplane, it is very easy to think an object is moving, from small corrections the autopilot makes. I found a handful of stars to serve as a reference point and verified that the object was slowly moving north.
It moved about 30 degrees and then stopped. Then, it made a slight tangent to the right and continued moving for about 20 more degrees.” “It stopped and turned again to the right and continued for 10 degrees, then stopped again and disappeared.”
“The whole sighting ran about two minutes or so from start to finish. It was difficult to judge the actual distance and speed. When I talk about ‘moving in degrees and turning,’ I am talking about my (cockpit) viewpoint and compass degrees.” “The UFO’s size was very small, about the size of the stars and planets you see in the sky.”
“We had initially been at 35,000 feet (10,500 meters) but had descended to 24,000 feet (7,200 meters) when we saw the object. We were above the clouds with a clear view, and there was a crescent moon behind us. The weather in San Francisco was partly cloudy skies and light rain.”
“There were two of us in the cockpit, and we both witnessed the same thing. We were both in awe. I have been flying for 14 years have never witnessed something like this before.”
NOTE: The above photo is real but from another sighting in Ohio.
Eagle Point and White City, Oregon-3-20-2007 about 11 AM.
With my eyes it was first seen as a small, shiny, white dot. I got my camera out and tried to zoom in and couldn’t find it.
Then I saw the shining again and zoomed in and started recording, and it was dark again and then shiny again, and then dark again, before it was blocked by a tree and I couldn’t find it again, about 16 seconds of video.
It was just above the mountains and when I was recording it, it seemed to be moving south. When I watched it on the TV and on computer it appeared to stay in the same place above the same cloud feature. We were on Modoc Rd. headed towards Medford, Oregon, and it was east of us towards Eagle Point or White City.
I thought maybe it would turn out to be a plane when I watched it on the TV screen, but I still couldn’t tell what it was exactly.
The truck was bouncing me around and it was hard to keep it on the object and we couldn’t pull over because we were working. My husband was with me but he was driving and couldn’t see it.
There were no airplanes or helicopters in the area. It was a cloudy day, but no rain. There were no electromagnetic effects, missing time, or smells associated with the sighting.
I was on my phone watching the NASA’s spacewalk 63 aboard the ISS aired in real time yesterday on the 20th of January 2020, around 6 hours and 30 mins into the space walk the last astronaught was preparing to enter back into the air lock for depressurisation and re-entry into the interior of the ISS. The two female astronaughts involved in the spacewalk included Christina Koch and Jessica (can’t remember the surname). I was watching Jessica on her way to the air lock impressed with the quality of the camera being used filming the final moments of the spacewalk on the exterior of the ISS, and then I noticed something strange on the screen. In total for the time I viewed the UFO on screen it stood perfectly still for about three seconds before shooting off which took about 0.5 seconds. Honestly I briefly thought it was an insect given it’s appearance as a tilted letter T, assuming that the shaft of the T was the body and the extremeties either side (longer than the shaft of the t like shape) were perhaps it’s wings. I then looked to see if it was attached to the ISS in any way hoping that perhaps a beam of light might reflect of a wire demonstrating that this T shaped object was connected to the exterior of the ISS. Whilst doing so I had a sudden realisation that it wasn’t attached at all and that it was perhaps a UFO. I decided to quickly screenshot it and upon doing so it zoomed of SO fast it was like, god I don’t know it was gone and shrunk to a point of infinity in less than the space of a second. It did not gradually accelerate it just instantaneously shot off into the distance exactly following the direction the camera was facing until it could no longer be seen. The video feed in use soon after changed to a different camera aboard the station. The photo I will attach of the ufo was about 80% during its shooting off phase, it was originally about 5 times closer and larger looking due to its close proximity. You can see that isn’t just some glitch in the camera lense as the sun light hitting the object is on the same side as the sun light hitting the ISS.
Cold-War era incident that occurred in October 1982. It involved an American RC-135 spy plane that, while monitoring Soviet military operations, came under some kind of surveillance by a large, unidentified and brightly-lit aircraft. The USAF base detailed in the report was located at RAF Troodos on Cyprus, and discussed an incident involving an unidentified aircraft which lasted close to 90 minutes.This is particularly intriguing to me, as I have a story that to a degree is somewhat similar to the one which Micah refers to. It’s a case that also revolves around both U.K. and U.S. authorities. The location is the same: Cyprus. The UFO, in both cases, was described as being large. And, the case brought to my attention occurred in the summer of 1981, just one year before the case referenced by Micah. Also, both UFOs were in view for a considerable amount of time. It’s important to note that I can’t be accused of having fallen for a modern-day hoaxer, as the story was given to me years ago. In fact, it takes up three pages of my first book, A Covert Agenda, which was published way back in 1997, a full twenty years ago.For a period of time beginning in 1981, the source of the story was employed as a radar operator at a particular military facility on the island of Cyprus (RAF Akrotiri)..On August 16, an unknown vehicle, described as being vast was tracked approaching the island at a height in excess of 30,000 feet, and at a speed of around 900 miles per hour. It was initially believed that this was a conventional aircraft, although one of an undeniably extraordinary size. This tentative conclusion was quickly blown out of the water, however, when the UFO came to a complete halt in the skies hovering high above RAF Akrotiri for close to an hour. Those who saw it described it as being of a brilliant white color, triangular in form, and somewhere in the region of seven hundred feet in length.Interestingly, the informant who shared his story with me on January 12, 1993 revealed that at some point before the incident took place, the Ministry of Defense had issued what was described to me as a complete stand-down of military planes in the area, in the event that something both unusual and extraordinary might be seen in the sky which it certainly was. Reportedly, a huge amount of photographs of the object were secured. They, and the station’s log-book, were handed over the next day to a man and a woman from the Ministry of Defense, and who had flown in from London. All those involved in the curious affair were reminded they had signed the British Government’s Official Secrets Act..It’s interesting to note that, soon after, according to the informant, a meeting was held at a U.K. military facility called Royal Air Force Lakenheath, located in the English county of Suffolk. Those who attended the classified meeting, specifically to discuss the event, included representatives of the British Ministry of Defense and the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations.There’s no doubt that the most baffling part of the story revolves around the claim that the MoD seemed to have prior knowledge that the UFO would appear in the skies over Cyprus. In light of this, I asked the guy who who related the story to me if he had pondered on the possibility that the object was not a UFO, after all, but some kind of secret, highly-advanced aircraft of a terrestrial rather than extra-terrestrial nature. Given that the craft hovered over the base for around three-quarters of an hour and was around 700 feet in length, he felt that such a scenario was highly unlikely. But, he admitted that he had no answer as to how the MoD knew the craft might appear. After A Covert Agenda was published, Mark Birdsall, the editor of Eye-Spy magazine informed me that he had received a near-identical story years earlier. Maybe, in light of all the above, we’ll soon learn more about what was afoot in the skies of Cyprus in the 1981-1982 period.

My wife ((wife’s name deleted)) was standing on our deck (south facing) and called me as she was wondering what a single reddish globe light in the sky was. The object came from the south (from Westfield/Eden direction) and traveled towards us. As the object neared, a second object (same color) appeared from the same direction. Shortly thereafter, a third object appeared. They appeared to be ˜globes and moved in a somewhat fast rate of speed. There was no noise. Their movement was very smooth (no quick movements). Object 1 traveled towards us and, at one point, began ascending straight up (it disappeared). Objects 2 and 3 passed the house (to our left look at the objects). As they passed, I noticed what appeared to be a single light (underneath) the object.
I could make out a black shape (outline from the light) but could not distinguish what it was. That is, they flew low enough for me to see that it did not have a bank of lights. I am confident in saying that it was not a plane as I did not see wings. The light was bright and did not flicker or pulse. I have seen and heard drones when deployed to Afghanistan. This was not, in my opinion, a drone. I am forwarding a picture captured of object 2 and 3 from our deck. I have other pictures but the size of the file would be too big to email. These were taken from my android phone (Samsung). Note that although it appears to be a ˜globe it is my sense that what you see is the light (under?) the object. I cannot confirm that it was, in fact, a roundish shape.
GRAND FORKS, NORTH DAKOTA, MARCH 1967, @ 12:00 p.m. (approx.) USAF officer takes a photograph of a winter scene, with a clear, blue sky, and apparently photographs two objects that may have been hovering nearby. The first reaction NUFORC had to the photo was that the objects might have been so-called lens flares, but there are elements of the photograph, and the orientation of the two objects in the photo, that seem to us to militate against that hypothesis. We post below the statement that accompanied the photo, and include the photograph. We invite comment.
((COPIED STATEMENT FROM SOURCE OF PHOTOGRAPHS))
Recently we were going through a huge stack of family pictures taken over many decades.
We were living in North Dakota at Grand Forks Air Force Base where my father ((deleted; an officer at)) a wing of nuclear armed B-52 bombers always on alert. We underwent a three day whiteout blizzard with 60 MPH winds that buried our house in snow in early March 1967. In between the houses the wind had blown the snow away to Canada since the ground is completely flat as far as the eye can see.
One from the front of the house is a picture of me digging out our car. My father then took a boring picture a minute or two later of the flat area between the houses to show that the wind had scoured the open areas clean of any snow drifts. We didn’t think much of the picture at the time.
It wasn’t until 2016 when we were going through the pictures that we noticed what looks like two UFOs in the sky over our house! Thought you might be interested because the picture is quite intriguing, to say the least! No one in the family noticed anything unusual at the time the pictures were taken.
The picture was taken looking from Grand Forks AFB, back eastward towards the city of Grand Forks, about 20 miles away. We were in the last row of houses on the base so there are no other dwellings in the picture.
In 1998 Dr. Steven M. Greer resigned his post as Chairman of Emergency Medicine at Caldwell Memorial Hospital in North Carolina to spend all his time and energy on exposing a massive corporate-government coverup of extraterrestrial contact that’s been kept under wraps for decades. Why does this matter? It’s not so much the dozens of deceased aliens secreted at Fort Huachuca in Arizona, Greer says, or even the super secret radionic technology that took the life of his assistant and two colleagues and nearly killed him. It’s not even the prototypes of UFOs that roam the Southwest’s friendly skies, looking so much like real E.T. craft that it’s hard to tell the difference. (Your tax dollars at work.)
What’s important, Greer insists, is that if the government came clean with what it knows about E.T. technology, we could upgrade the planet. Not only would we wean ourselves off oil and other fossil fuels, but we could scrap nuclear power and implement clean, cheap, safe energy that any country or culture could afford. One problem: That might weaken or topple the corporate-government power structure that controls our fuel and energy systems, mass-produces war weapons and keeps a tight rein on the global economy. So how to shine a light on a shadowy consortium that promotes war while fostering scarcity, making gas prices astronomic?
Based in Crozet, Virginia, Greer’s Disclosure Project has convinced hundreds of insiders, including military brass and CIA ops, to defy nondisclosure pacts. They’ve coughed up documents (some still classified) and signed testimonials. Greer’s got it all — in fact, he gave Peter Jennings’s producers access to these bombshell revelations for the ABC special on UFOs that aired last spring. But, as the good doctor found out, you can’t give this stuff to the mainstream media and expect it to air on prime time. “They won’t let us do it,” a senior producer told Greer by phone. “I said,’Who’s They?'” Greer recalls. “And he said ‘Dr. Greer, you know who they are.’ And click, he hung up.”
So why not get these documents to the President of the United States? Been there, done that. “Hillary and Bill spent hours poring over them,” Greer claims a close friend of the Clintons reported, adding that when Clinton took office, he wanted two questions answered: Who killed Jack Kennedy? and What’s going on with the UFOs? It didn’t take long for Clinton to realize, says Greer’s friend, that he had a much better chance of completing his term if he followed his own “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
In 2001, Greer held a press conference at which many witnesses came forward, but it was eclipsed by 9/11. Since then he’s gathered more insiders willing to reveal what the government won’t. So if you’re tired of holding hands with the Saudis, or you think it’s time Earthlings had access to that cool, antigravity technology that allows UFOs to dodge our weapons (most of the time), check out DisclosureProject.org.
“It’s about your pocketbook, not about little green men,” says Greer, who wants to replace fossil fuel and nuclear power with the advanced energy systems used by E.T.’s. Where do you get that? “Just ask the government,”Greer replies. “They’ve had it for 50 years.”
Washington may not want to listen, but we certainly do.
I wanted to share my own little UFO experience. Taking a risk because people are cruel and judgmental. I’m surprised about how many people had not had an experience like that. I guess it’s about location, location. My experience blew me away, it was the infamous Illinois event, the big triangle airship that was sighted over parts of Southern Illinois & Indiana. I got to be one of those witnesses. So my story starts out where we are at a friend’s log cabin she had recently built out in the boonies, here in southern Indiana. In the boonies there’s no street lights or anything. Not to many folks, you know. So we’re out there and I’m with my family and it’s a winter’s night. We’d been there for an hour or so and I was inside. I just had this really strange feeling that I wanted to go outside and go out on the porch. It’s winter! I grab my hat, my jacket and my gloves…and I tell my husband I’m going out, hang out on the front porch for a little bit and just get a breath of fresh air. I don’t explain anything further, but I just have this feeling I need to go outside. So I go out there and I’m looking up at the sky. It’s a beautiful, starry winter sky. I love the winter. I remember looking to my left and, you know, seeing the stars and I remember panning to my right and, right there, is blocked out stars, it’s black, I can’t see the stars anymore. I’m looking and it’s in the shape of this triangle and it’s huge! I’m like focusing and trying to wrap my brain around what I’m seeing and it is hovering but it’s got a slow forward motion, just ever so slightly and it’s quiet. I mean, I didn’t even know that it would have been there had I not been looking up at the sky. If I’d have just been standing on the porch and not looking up, I would have never known it was there. And I’m watching it and by the time I gather myself and get my head together, I want someone else to see this too. Now I don’t want to be the only one to see this thing so I’m pounding on the windows, pounding on the doors. You know everybody’s inside, it’s winter time. I can’t get anyone’s attention. By the time I get their attention, they come outside it’s already started to move out of the field of vision because we’re surrounded by trees, which are now blocking it. I mean, like, you know, evergreens and stuff, blocking the view of this craft. I’m like, no one else sees it but me. Yeah, story of my life. So I’m freaking out and I’m telling my husband, “Dude, there was a UFO right there, as close as, you know, the trees, the treetops, just right there, I mean, like it was watching, like it was looking and watching.” It creeped me out because I felt like as I was watching it, it was watching me. I didn’t like that. It gave me that big brother feeling. What helped me feel better was the next day. I wasn’t the only one that had seen it, as there was actually police officers in the state of Illinois that witnessed this exact craft, as well. So I was thankful that I wasn’t alone in this experience and it changed me in so many ways. It was very profound because it happened to me. I’m an adult and a grown-up and it really was unnerving and the feeling that it gave me unnerved me too. So I thought I’d share my creepy story of my triangle shaped UFO in southern Indiana.
