Five credible witnesses saw a UFO and one of its passengers on Presque Isle Park. Two women clearly saw a strange being. John Keel, respected paranormalist, investigated.
The summer of 1966 was a strange one for some Erie residents. Eight gave descriptions of the alien beings they saw. People reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky. Something was eerie in Erie, the city of the canal folk song fame.
A glowing object landed on Erie’s Presque Isle Park deserted beach during the night of July 31, 1966, a few hundred feet from a car that was bogged down in the sand with five young people in it.
The terrified witnesses, with no escape, watched. After the craft landed, they saw it send strange rays of light into the woods close by.
A tall dark figure slowly moved awkwardly toward the car, adding to their terror. It scratched the vehicle’s roof, then left.
The witnesses reported the incident to the police. During the investigation the next day, large amounts of silicon and some cone-like indentations were found in the sand where the craft had landed.
Presque Isle police vouched for the sincerity of the witnesses who were still very very scared when they reported the event. Many other Erie residents reported seeing bizarre lights or, as some would say, “UFOs,” in the sky that night. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While looking for Saturn/Jupiter in the sky, I saw something bright, which I thought was a star or planet. I took the picture and when I blew it up, it was a cylindrical mass falling from the sky. It left a trail behind which I could not see until I looked at the picture. When enlarging the picture further, it looked like a half a cylinder with a cored out middle. It was golden colored.
MUFON investigator classified this case as IFO–IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT…..SATURN
On Jan 5th 2021 1:34 AM CST a red-orange pulsating UFO emerged from the horizon tree line around Lake Powell, ascended to roughly 45 degrees above the horizon and continued east for roughly 2 1/2 minutes before disappearing in the middle of the sky. The pulsating object was not using standard aviation forward/rear navigation lights (red/green/white), and appeared “saturn-like” in shape when zoomed in with a super-zoom camera (Nikon Coolpix P1000). The weather conditions were 44 degrees Fahrenheit with 0 MPH wind. Flightaware flight tracking was checked and there was no aircraft in the vicinity. The object was recorded on both a Nest 1080p home security camera in night-vision mode, and a hand-held Nikon Coolpix P1000. Cropped and zoomed videos provided, full raw Nest cam footage available by investigator request. A single frame (@15 seconds) of Nikon Coolpix P1000 video footage is included to showcase the “saturn-like” shape of the orange object. Nikon footage is shaky due to zoom level and being hand-held without tripod.
At exactly 7:58 this evening, my dog started barking in an unusual manner outside. On our back deck at 7:59 PM I recorded 2 videos of what I perceived to be a fairly large aircraft flying very slowly, low over my house at first, then just over treetops from a 230* SW direction towards NW 316*. By the naked eye, it had three prominent white lights blinking together, alternating with a very bright red light, but in between that pattern there were other flashes on the craft and seemingly around it/beside it, unknown if this was another craft or attached to it (maybe larger than I thought). The videos, when slowed down, shows every color on the rainbow. I went inside after losing sight of it, but when my dog barked again 5 minutes later, I went back out to find it flying over my house again opposite the original direction, towards 178* S, where it went into the woods in National Forrest land- it disappeared from sight and I am unsure if it landed back there or if the mountain blocked my view. Glassy Mountain does have a landing pad on it and is in that general direction from here, unknown for sure. Its flight path was very smooth but not steady: slow drifting to the side, decelerating with several seconds of hovering multiple times, then accelerating again.
It was completely silent, during and after- no sound whatsoever. A very similar completely silent craft actually landed in the woods SW of my house, fairly close but on my neighbors property, on November 18, 2020 at 10:44 PM. Similar colors, flight characteristics. Other flashing lights are seen flying beside and around the craft at various points on different flight paths, not seen by naked eye. Dog also went crazy barking and tore after it that night, alerting me to its presence. Tried to check out that area the next day but no trespassing is strictly enforced by our friendly neighbor, so unable to reach area. Pictures above are still frames from the video. Someone talented in audiovisual effects could probably change the contrast and lighting and pick up on the actual form of the craft, but I am not that person.
I was taking my Great Dane out in the back yard, on a leash, so she could go to the bathroom. I don’t know why, but I happened to look up at the backyard of my neighbor’s house & saw a triangular shaped ‘ship’. It looked small, was white on the outside & had an ‘indentation’ that looked dark brown on the bottom. Honestly, before I knew it it was over the top of me & my Dane. We were by the back of the house. She was just sniffing around. I don’t know why I looked up again, but I did. It was bigger, the same colors & shape. It didn’t look big enough to hold a person; but somehow I knew ‘they’ were going to ‘take’ me. I know it sounds stupid, but it is true. I was so full of fear that the only thing I could think of to do was to call my mom. She is my Best Friend, I started to dial & honestly it “the ship?’ was gone, I felt relieved as if I’d just averted a terrible thing. I swear I somehow knew that ‘they’ were going to ‘take me up on their ship’ , I know it’s not as detailed, but I’ve tried not to talk about it. I’ve mentioned it to my child & husband, but I don’t bring it up to my mom as she has too many things to worry about & her health. I don’t want her to worry. I hope I’ve explained well enough. No one believes me. Maybe you know someone who knows what happened. I don’t know how, but I just knew stuff. It was too small, but I knew they were going to take me up & I was afraid my Dane as well. I am sorry that I don’t have any photos or sketches. If you want I will try to do the best I can. It was a long time ago, but I can not forget it or how scared I was. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was on my phone while sitting on my balcony. I realized it was really bright around me, so I closed my phone. When I realized the brightness was coming from above, I saw a huge, bright ship. As I stood up, the ship flipped on its side, so the dome part was facing me. It went pretty high in the sky and then began to move right. After traveling for a while, it stayed in one spot and hung there. It kept coming back every night for a few weeks, maybe a couple of months. After the first few times of seeing just one ship, I noticed on Sept 4, and there were two ships. They stay for a while. I would stay out there and watch them a few times, but I would hang in the sky for so long, way past the stars disappearing in the morning time. The video is the initial sighting that occurred.
Hi Ken: I was outside in the back garden sky watching and there really didn’t seem to be that much air traffic about, it seemed unusually quiet up there. I sat there waiting patiently for any unidentified objects to fly over the area and after about 20 minutes of scanning the sky for anything that was unusual, I finally spotted a black object that was quite far off in the distance. The black object seemed to be heading in my direction and as it got closer I could see that it was in fact saucer shaped. The saucer shaped object was now directly above the town when all of a sudden it made a turn and slowly began to climb in altitude. I immediately photographed it with my Nikon P900 camera and watched as it climbed higher and higher into the atmosphere until I lost sight of it. I was very excited I had just witnessed another alien saucer flying high above the town centre. These UFOs are so prevalent around this area of Devon and I’m really surprised that more people don’t report seeing them. The photograph was taken at 1:23 PM on the 7th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
During the week of August 10th-14th 2015 Myself, my Spouse and her brother went on a camping trip to Parsons landing, which is located on the East coast of Catalina Island (located off the coast of California) towards the north tip of the island. The campsite is literally on the beach facing east (slightly north east) looking at California’s west coast (basically looking at LA). During one night well after sunset we were all sitting around talking and just enjoying the moment, when I notice a ball of light making extreme maneuvers that defy normal aircraft capabilities. I made it aware to look at what I was watching. Only a few seconds had elapsed from the time I realized what I was looking at a UFO and telling to look at the Light. Now all three of us are watching this light maneuver around over the ocean roughly 500ft-2000ft. (the coast of California is barely visible from the coast of Catalina at its distance of 22 miles, its extremely dark out on the beach at parsons landing). The light then split into two lights which were a glowing color of whitish, yellowish gold. They then started to dance together to sort of speak. Making extremely abnormal flight paths but staying relatively close to each other. They then come back together to form a single star like color/shape (back to the original “form”), and then descended into the ocean. Then before us three could even say anything, the light ascended out of the ocean split into two star-like lights, danced around (making extreme movements up, down ,left ,right within a blink of an eye) then coming back together to form one light and then descend back into the ocean. This entire experience happened over the course of roughly 5-7 minutes in length (from the time I noticed the UFO to the time it’s last descent into the ocean). NOTE: The above UFO is real but from another case file.
On July 31 and August 1, 1966, there was a flurry of sightings in the general area of Washington and Baltimore. Prince Georges County police watched lighted objects maneuvering erratically across the sky. In Baltimore, residents of the Country Ridge housing development were awakened early in the morning of August 1 by barking dogs.
At least two families saw a hovering, egg-shaped object with flashing lights on the top and bottom. The object made a loud whirring or whining noise, according to the Baltimore News-American (8/1).
That night, physicist Vasil Uzunoglu, a consultant on micro-electronics, was driving north and east on the Capital (Washington, D.C.) Beltway about 10:55 p.m. (EDT). He had passed Andrews Air Force Base when, out of his open left window, he saw a light descend and appear to hover briefly, then move rapidly to the east.
Minutes later an oblong object “like a submarine” descended over a house to his left. This time the UFO was much closer, its apparent size as large as the house. Dr. Uzunoglu slowed his car and looked at the object, now an estimated 200 feet away, for about ten seconds.
At this point it showed details of structure: a peaked top with a red light; an apparently rounded undersurface with red lights; and a large yellow revolving light slightly off-center.
“I could see clearly the top of the body, which was a dark, non-shining material with no sharp edges,” he told NICAP. “The most striking part was the eye-like object off-center to the right, with two distinct yellow regions. . . (The lower region) was revolving, blinking or scanning. . . “
Dr. Uzunoglu turned his attention to the highway again, noting that no other cars were in sight. When he glanced back again, the object was moving south “at a very high speed and comparatively low elevation.” He said it disappeared in seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Between 12:00 and 12:15 PM, Sept. 11, 2010, I was out walking my dog in the yard when I saw this bright, blue-white light as high up in the sky as I could see.
It was falling at an incredible speed over Kahului, and seemingly landed towards Lao Needle north of the airport. It seemed like it crashed into the earth, but there was no noise.
The second it hit there was a rolling blackout for about 15 seconds. We live at the top of Haleakala and have strange sightings pretty much everyday. 3 nights ago on Sept 8th at 1:00 AM exactly, there were 3 discs floating above the gulch directly across from our house. We are the only ones with a view of this area.
They had a band of streaming orange lights left to right scanning movement – over the cattle fields. We watched them there for about half an hour. It looked like a jellyfish – a disc with lights hanging from below.
After watching for about 30 minutes, we tried to take pictures but the phone and camera batteries were all dead, and when we came inside all our clocks read different times.
On Sept 7th we were driving down old Haleakala Hwy around 5 PM, there is always a lot of air traffic over Kahului, with the airport right there; however, we spotted an unidentified floating object straight over the town of Wailuku.
It was disc-shaped and silver, the sun was reflecting off of it very brightly. It was a little bigger than an airplane, but just sitting in one place, that is how it caught my attention.
I began to look closer and it began moving to the south at a very slow speed – this is when I realized that it was definitely no aircraft that I have ever seen. Then it definitely had my attention.
It moved back and forth north to south from Lao Needle over to Lao Valley 3 times and it came back to rest over Wailuku, floating there for about another 30 seconds. Then at incredible speeds it looked like it fell from the sky, hit the ground then shot back up and into Lao Valley like lightning. It was the creepiest thing that I have ever seen. I was shaken by that experience deeply, but since then the sightings have only gotten more numerous.
The picture is from August 23, taken straight from my Blackberry phone. I’m not sure what is going on here, but it is definitely something.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I have posted to the Phenomena website a whole range of reports, interviews and official documents that I collected during my years as a UFO investigator in the UK and that I had not previously highlighted or published.
I recently received an email from a guy who had read the material on the site and he asked me what I considered to be the strangest official UFO related document that I had ever found in the British Government’s archives.
I really didn’t have to give this much thought: I knew instantly what my answer would be.
Without doubt the most unusual report (in my opinion, at least) I ever came across at the National Archive (formerly the Public Record Office) at Kew, England, surfaced in 1999.
It concerns an incident that dated from 1966 and that originated with the British Royal Air Force’s Provost and Security Services – an elite arm of the RAF that until 1998 had its headquarters at a British RAF base named Rudloe Manor, and that has for many years been the alleged central hub for classified, official UFO investigations.
In a painstakingly-detailed report, one Corporal R.A. Rickwood of the P&SS Special Investigation Section, related to his superiors the facts:
On 10th November 1966 a telephone message was received from Flight Lieutenant Williams, RAF Shawbury, reporting that a Mrs. Foulkes of [Address of the witness] Shrewsbury, had complained that his daughter had been frightened by an object in the sky whilst she had been driving along the A5 road near Great Ness at 2355 hours on 8th November 1966.
This object had emitted brilliant lights and radiation beams. On arriving home her daughter had been in a distressed condition and she had discovered marks on the car, which she considered were burn marks.
On 14th November 1966, Miss Diane Foulkes, aged 22 years, a typist employed in Shrewsbury was seen at her home in the presence of her parents. She stated that she had received a letter dated 11th November 1966 from RAF Shawbury signed by a Flight Lieutenant Penny informing her that no service aircraft had been flying in that area at the time of the incident.
She was now satisfied that the incident was in no way connected with the Royal Air Force or the Armed Forces.
She then went on to relate her experiences connected with this enquiry. There had been two similar incidents. The first occurred two years ago in November 1964, when she had been driving from Shrewsbury to her home along the A5 road.
This was at about 0200 hours as she neared the Montford Bridge over the River Severn. Approximately midway between Shrewsbury and Great Ness a brightly lit circular object appeared in the sky above her car.
She had been frightened and had accelerated along the road. The object had kept pace with her remaining at the same height until she arrived home.
She had told her mother and father who also watched the object.
She described the object as an especially bright light in the sky which remained stationary due west from their home for about half an hour. It had then rapidly diminished in size and they assumed it had accelerated away from them. No sound was heard from the object.
The light was yellow in colour and became red as it diminished.
The second incident occurred on the 8th November 1966 at 2355 hours and again whilst she was returning from Shrewsbury on the same road.
The object had again appeared at Montford Bridge but this time it was much lower in the sky and on the north side of the road.
On this occasion she could see rays of light shooting from the object which had again appeared to keep station with her car until she arrived home. At one time during the journey the object travelled near her and the rays seemed to come towards the right hand side of her car.
She felt a bump against that side as if they had struck it. At this moment she felt as if she had received an electric shock and had felt a severe pain in her neck.
The left-hand side headlight of the car also went out. This made her extremely frightened. When she got home she felt very ill and had complained to her parents.
The object again remained stationary in the sky north of her home and had not been seen by her parents. They had noticed it for a short time before going inside her home.
There had been no sign of the object on the following morning.
Miss Foulkes’ parents confirmed seeing an object in the sky on both occasions as described by their daughter and agreed with her descriptions of these.
Miss Foulkes further stated that she believed that the objects could be associated with a Mr Griffin who lived in the area and who is reputed to have made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met one of the occupants.
He is also alleged to make his contacts with them at Montford Bridge.
The local civil police had no information or reports of sightings of objects in the sky. There is no evidence to associate the incidents complained of with the Royal Air Force and the complainant Miss Foulkes is now satisfied that the incidents are unexplainable and are in no way connected with the Armed Forces.
In essence, that is the file. It is clear from examining its contents that the witness had reported some stunning experiences: “the rays of shooting light” that enveloped her car; the electric shock-like pain that surged through her neck as the vehicle was bathed in the beam of light; the loss of power from the car’s headlights (something that is reported time and again in UFO encounters); and the potentially-worrying fact that the experience had left the witness “very ill.”
Perhaps the most significant factor, however, was the reference of the Provost and Security Services to a man in the near vicinity that had reputedly “made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met the occupants.”
Prior to the 1970s, very little exposure was given to so-called alien abduction incidents; however, many of the factors present in the P&SS report lead me to believe that something very strange indeed had taken place in the Great Ness area of Shrewsbury in 1966, and that that “something” was very possibly connected with abduction-like encounters.
Oddly, despite the fact that the official file on this case was declassified more than half a decade ago -and the document at issue has been examined by a number of UFO researchers – it seems that little or no attempt has been made to resolve the case.
Perhaps now with its contents highlighted here, someone will take a fresh look at the case and attempt to resolve the question of what really happened nearly 40 years ago at Montford Bridge. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

In the city of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts on the night of January 25, 1967, one of the most celebrated cases of UFO abduction began. Betty Andreasson was working in her kitchen while her seven children, mother, and father were in the living room.
Shortly after 6:30, the lights in the house briefly blinked.
Immediately thereafter, a reddish light began to beam through the kitchen window. The sudden darkness in the house set the kids nerves on edge, and Betty ran to comfort them. Her father ran into the kitchen to peer out the window, and find the source of the unusual light.
To his utter shock, he saw five odd-looking beings coming toward the house with a hopping motion!
Before he could regain his composure, he saw the beings walk right through the wooden door! What happened next would test the imagination and strength of even an open-minded, adventurous person. The entire family was suddenly put into a state of suspended animation.
One of the creatures went to Betty’s father, while one of the other four began to make telepathic communication with Betty. One of the group seemed to be a leader of sorts.
He was about five-feet tall. The other four appeared to be about a foot shorter. All of the beings had a pear-shaped head, with wide eyes, and small ears and noses.
Their mouths were only slits, and never moved, though they were able to communicate through their minds.
The beings wore a type of coverall, blue in color, with a wide belt. There also was a logo of a bird on their sleeves. The hands only had three fingers, and they wore boots. The creatures did not move as a human, but floated as they went.
Betty would later relate that, though she was frightened, she felt a sense of calm, even friendship toward the beings.
The aliens were holding Betty’s children in a frozen state of consciousness, but when Betty showed concern for them, the aliens released her 11-year-old daughter, to assure her the children were not being harmed.
Betty was taken by the aliens outside to a waiting craft which rested on the side of a sloping back yard. The craft was estimated to be about 20 feet in diameter, in the classic UFO shape.
Betty believes that after she was aboard the craft, it joined a “mother” craft, where she underwent a physical examination, and also was subjected to the effects of strange equipment.
After this, she was given a type of bizarre test, which caused her pain at first, but resulted in a kind of religious experience. Approximately four hours later, she was returned to her home by two of her captors. When she arrived, her entire family was still in a state of suspended animation.
One of the beings had stayed in her house, evidently to watch the other family members. After releasing the family from the trancelike state, the aliens left.
Betty would later state that the aliens had hypnotized her to not recall any of her experience until a designated time to be determined later.
She was able to recall only certain things at the time of her experience; the power outage, the red light through the kitchen window, and the aliens entering the house.
Before this bizarre happening, Betty had little or no knowledge of UFO folklore, and being a devoted Christian, she believed that the abduction had a religious meaning.
It would be later until she began to view the abduction as alien in nature.
Eight years later Betty answered an ad from Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was soliciting abduction experiences from the general public. Her letter was dismissed at the time, because of its unusual details, and it would be January 1977, before her story would be fully investigated.
The investigative team assigned to the Andreasson case included a solar physicist, and electronics engineer, an aerospace engineer, a telecommunications specialist, and a UFO investigator.
The service of a hypnotist, and a medical doctor trained in psychiatry were also used. Betty’s case involved twelve months of investigation.
She was given a character-reference check, two lie-detector tests, a psychiatric review, and an excruciating fourteen sessions of regressive hypnosis.
The results of this inquiry were startling.
Betty, along with her daughter, relived a detailed account of a UFO experience, agreeing on all basic aspects. The results were published in a 528 page account, which stated that Betty and her daughter were sane individuals, who sincerely believe all of the details given in their statements.
The Betty Andreasson abduction case is still unexplained today. NOTE ; The above image is CGI.
I witnessed something that I really can’t explain at Newton Road. It’s been playing on my mind for a long time now and that’s why I have decided to come forward and write about what I saw that morning. This is really out there and I wouldn’t of believed it if I hadn’t of witnessed it with my own eyes. It was about 5:30 am and I was having a smoke waiting for my lift to work when I began to watch a man as he walked along the pavement on the opposite side of the road. He was dressed in black and looked well built. There was nothing odd until he stopped abruptly when he got to the small bridge that over looks the old railway lines. It looked as though he had seen something. This is where things got weird… As I watched the man he turned and looked over the bridge and then to my surprise a ball of white light flew up right in front of the man and stopped right in front of him. The light was incredibly bright and the strange thing was that it did not cast any light on the man or the surrounding area which did not make any sense. At this point I had put out my cigarette and I had moved a bit closer to the wired fence that was in front of me so I could get a better look. The light was now even closer to the man and it was now right near his face. I watched on in astonishment as the man tried to grab at the light which caused it to move back away from him. The light seemed to glide through the air which was really strange. The man just stood there looking at the light before it glided through the air up toward the trees where it just stopped. The man then looked away from the light and looked up and down the road before he looked back at the light. The light then glided behind the trees and the man started running down the road heading in the direction of Kingsteignton. I watched as the light faded away into the trees and I stood there for a while trying to make sense of what I had just seen, but I couldn’t. Then my friend pulled up in his car to pick me up so I got in his car and we made our way to work. I said nothing about this to my friend. What I had just witnessed was unbelievable. I believe that I witnessed this event some time in the winter of 2002 at Newton Abbot Devon UK. Yours sincerely Daniel Jones. I really felt that I had to get this off my chest.

Special thanks to the witness Daniel Jones of Newton Abbot Devon.
A Pennsylvania Railroad employee and his companion fled in fear from a glowing object hovering a few feet above a creek bed near Milford, Ohio, in the early morning of February 11, 1967.
The sighting was investigated by Leonard H. Stringfield, NICAP Adviser in Cincinnati.
Michael McKee and Sharon Hildebrand were driving toward Milford when they noticed through the woods a white glowing light. Taking a railroad light from the car, they approached to investigate.
They discovered an oval object with a tube-like appendage underneath (giving a “mushroom-shape” appearance), hovering a few feet above a creek bed which dropped several- feet into a ravine.
They approached to within 100 feet of the object, which appeared to be about 30 feet in diameter.
When Mr. McKee shone his lantern on the object, it gave a metallic-appearing “mirror reflection”. Miss Hildebrand said she noticed a row of lights on the object, which disappeared when the lantern was turned off.
Confronted with the strange glowing object, the pair became frightened and fled the scene.
Stopping at the nearest phone, at a restaurant, they called Mr. Stringfield who advised them to contact the police.
Officer Charles O’Brien returned to the site with the witnesses at 3:30 a.m. He discovered “splintered tree limbs and twigs” near where the UFO had hovered.
Next day, Mr. Stringfield had an engineer friend inspect the site, and he reported that small trees and branches had been “pressed down by a heavy-weight.”
Further investigation revealed that on the previous evening and into the morning of the 11th, several residents in Madeira, Kenwood, Wyoming, and Blue Ash, had seen unusual aerial activity.
Near Kenwood about 11:45 p.m. a woman reported seeing a glowing object about 20 feet in diameter flying at a very low altitude.
A round, glowing red object at low altitude was reported in the same area by a couple at 12:15 a.m. About 1:00 a.m., residents of Blue Ash and Wyoming saw an oval red or orange object at low altitude.
In checking with the police, Mr. Stringfield discovered that Lockland Patrolman Frank Guber, sitting in his cruiser at 2:00 a.m., had watched a brilliant red light cross the sky, hover, then move off on a new course.
The reports agreed that the UFO was moving in a generally northeast direction. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At about 8:45 p.m. on February 9, 1967, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Guseman of Middletown, Delaware, were driving south on U.S. 13 toward Odessa.
They had just crossed a bridge over a canal when Mr. Guseman saw two lights near the road ahead and to their left.
The left light was green and the one on the right red. Suddenly two bright white lights came on between the colored ones. Thinking they were landing lights, Guseman said to his wife, “Look at the crazy plane trying to land!”
As the couple drew nearer, they could see the lights were stationary and attached to a large and unfamiliar object. Only the white lights were visible as they came up opposite to the object, across the highway from them.
It sat motionless just over the trees approximately 200 feet from them at an altitude of about 70 or 80 feet.
Mr. Guseman rolled down his left window and he and his wife studied the object more closely. It was disc-shaped with a kind of cupola under the main body.
Its width was estimated at about 50 feet and its height at about 20 feet at the thickest point.
Except for the top, the object was clearly visible, a dark gray silhouette against the lighter sky. The surface was smooth and the bright white lights appeared to be searchlights affixed to the front end.
The beams of these lights were wider at the ends than at the source and only the source of the closer beam was visible, the other being hidden by the body of the object.
The rather squared cupola, or “gondola” contained a horizontal row of windows which gave forth a faint soft light, steady and uninterrupted by any forms or movement.
The light was described as “yellowish” by Mr. Guseman, “pinkish” by his wife. On the bottom of this gondola, in the center, were three red lights which shone with an even intensity.
For about two minutes the couple watched the object as it hovered motionless. Several cars and trucks passed on the highway, but none slowed down or appeared to take notice.
Then suddenly the two forward beams of light began to swing upward until they were pointed at a 45-degree angle from horizontal, shining upwards and out into the night sky.
As soon as they reached this new position, the object began moving in a forward direction toward the north, and to the left of the witnesses. As it moved, the Gusemans heard a soft hum or buzz, similar to the sound of an electric motor.
The UFO proceeded in a slow, straight trajectory at an even altitude and as it changed its angle of perspective relative to the viewers’ position, it presented the same circular, disc-shape with the undercarriage and windows below.
After moving approximately two or three hundred feet to the north over the trees, the UFO seemed literally to disappear.
They assumed it had dropped down into a field beyond the tree-line, but when they drove near the field to check further they saw nothing; nor could they find any evidence on the ground where the UFO had hovered when they searched it with a flashlight.
Guseman, 29 at the time of the sighting, is president of the Delmarva Contracting Company, Middletown; his wife is a business administrator in Wilmington Memorial Hospital.
Their sighting was investigated by NICAP staff members Stuart Nixon and Isabel Davis and they were later questioned further at NICAP headquarters by Dr. James E. McDonald.
The witnesses were articulate, unemotional and cooperative in both their interviews. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
David Morris, 19, a factory worker in Kent, Ohio, was driving home to Munroe Falls from work early in the morning of March 28, 1967.
At about 2:30 AM, while driving west along Little River Road, he topped a small hill and suddenly saw an orange-glowing object ahead of him.
It was in a field to his left, on the south side of the road, and was apparently hovering several feet above the ground. He described it later as a cone-shaped object about 25 feet tall and 12 feet wide at the base, with a small sphere on top.
As Morris slowed his car down for a better look, he saw four or five small figures scurrying quickly back and forth across the road, about 50 feet ahead of him.
They appeared between three and a half and four feet tall, and they gave off the same soft orange glow similar to the object.
Morris quickly slammed on his brakes but, unable to stop in time, struck one of the beings as it crossed the road to his right.
He heard a thump at the moment of impact, and saw the being’s raised hand as it was struck. He saw no fingers on this hand.
The car traveled another ten feet before it stopped. Morris turned and looked around, his hand on the door. He saw a group of little figures standing as if clustered about something lying on the road and, suddenly frightened, he sped off.
He did not report the incident to the police because he was convinced that whatever he struck had not been human.
The next day Morris found dents in his right front bumper that had not been there before. He mentioned the story to several of his co-workers, one of whom was acquainted with a reporter for a local newspaper.
This reporter alerted NICAP, and the incident was carefully investigated by Charles E. Toner and Roy Wiley of the Pittsburgh NICAP Subcommittee on several subsequent occasions.
In addition, Carol Clapp, the reporter for the Ravenna Record-Courier, did extensive checking on the case and provided NICAP with additional details. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At the time of this story, Millman was working for the Nation Research Council of Canada. He received the facts of the case from the Department of National Defense.
The two people, who gave their report to Canadian officials, have asked to remain anonymous, for fear of ridicule. It was on June 18, 1967 that their case begins. Taking a nice, peaceful boat right down a northern Ontario lake, Mr. and Mrs. G. were visiting friends, and began their ride back to their cabin.
As they are enjoying the moonlit night, they were suddenly shocked to see a brilliant object of unknown object. This object was simply hovering about 50 feet above tree level, and approximately one-quarter of a mile away from them. Slowing their boat down, they make a turn to get a full view of this strange object.
As they sit in wonder, suddenly the object begins to pick up speed, racing straight toward them! Regaining his composure, Mr. G revs up his 75 horsepower motor, and gives it all it’s got, heading to the lake’s shore.
The distance between themselves and the object allows them just enough time to arrive on the bank. They quickly exit the boat. Looking back up into the sky, they see the object has taken back it’s original position. After a few minutes of time, Mr. and Mrs. G decide to try a return trip back down the river to their neighbors’ house.
Shortly after launching into the water, the object again makes a move to descend upon the two terrified witnesses. Again outracing the craft to the shore, the two ditch the boat, and run to another house, loudly and excitedly rousing their acquaintances.
Their friends would later state that Mr. and Mrs. G were honestly and profoundly frightened to death by what they had seen.
Now there were several more witnesses to this unusual, brilliant object..just hovering above the trees that surrounded the quiet waters of the lake. They watch the object for another 10-15 minutes until finally it races into the night to the west-northwest.
Knowing that they had seen something quiet extraordinary, they make a full report of the incident. This unusual occurrence was meticulously detailed by Canada’s National Defense team. Other details derived from a thorough questioning of the witnesses revealed several important facts.
The object, though it did not show a light of any kind, caused the trees to move below it, as it hovered. The craft was distinguishable from the moon, as both objects could be clearly detailed simultaneously. The object was a traditional oval shape with a dome on top, estimated at 25-30 feet across, and 10-15 feet tall.
Though the object rapidly streaked through the sky, no sound was heard by the witnesses, nor other guests at cabins in the vicinity. One guest did observe that at about the time of the incident, he was listening to his radio, when it suddenly went dead. Later in the evening, it was working fine again.
The investigative team discovered a number of broken, wilted limbs directly below where the object had hovered. An analysis was made in Winnipeg, and the results of that examination was that no reasonable explanation could be offered for the damage to the tree limbs.
The report also stated that the limbs showed signs of heat, and the samples contained no diseases or insect infestation. This is a classic case of an encounter of the second kind. This case was very well documented, and the object was listed as unexplained. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
The 55-year-old snap of Nasa reveals a UFO spaceship observing the Mercury probe sent during the space exploration’s formative days. This proves that the aliens are watching humankind keenly. Waring found the presence of a disc in the photos from the Mercury project that took place in December 1960. He says that it is not surprising that aliens have shown interest in watching the historic moment related to human history as the capsule did not carry any human. Hence, there were no worries that the aliens could have been seen.
The photograph shows the earth in the background while the UFO is observing the activity of the Mercury capsule. The Mercury-Redstone 1A on December 19, 1960, was observing the activities of a UFO when an Nasa staffer snapped the photographs. Only one or two photos reveal the presence of a classic disc having a wedge cut out. Project Mercury was the first ambitious US mission in which six manned space flights were also included. As a part of the mission in February 1962, a manned space flight was sent making John Glenn the first American to orbit our planet.
I’m turning to you so that maybe someone else has had a similar experience and can help me, because I feel like I’m going crazy. I live in Pearland Texas, a suburb of Houston.
A few days ago, early morning of the 12th of September, I awoke with with strange visual (what I at first thought were hallucinations or that I’d been possibly drugged. The ceiling appeared to have swirling colors of pink and a greenish blue.
I looked to my right and saw something in my bathroom. It was small, I thought maybe a squirrel or raccoon had gotten in the house. I closed the door to trap it, but upon a closer inspection, nothing was there.
I heard what I thought were voices and strange noises coming from my neighbors’ yard. From my window, it looked like my neighbors were building a very large tall bench swing, there was a red color coming from this area.
I thought that the neighbors were maybe playing with lights of some sort and that this may have been the reason for the strange colors in my bedroom. This all happened around midnight. I wanted to find out what was possibly happening next door so I went downstairs.
As I was reaching the stairs I noticed an unrecognizable symbol on the wall that seemed to be made of blue light. When I touched it, it felt warm. This light also cast a blue reflection on the white enamel paint of the bannister.
I realized that this could not have been a reflection from next door because of the lack of windows in my staircase. When I got outside, it was quiet. I asked “hello” and didn’t get an immediate response.
The air felt staticy and it felt as though if I touched anything that I’d receive a shock. When I peered through the fence I saw ten black spheres; Four on top, three below, then two and one, like an inverted triangle.
It rose slightly, then the top left sphere broke away from the others and came towards me. At first I panicked and could not move. As I looked into this sphere, it had an iridescence to it that made me feel calm when I looked at it.
I do not remember going back to my room, I just remember being there. I noticed the clock said 1:45am. I also noticed some dried crusty blood around my right nostril. The room still had those two strange colors moving all around the surfaces of the walls and ceiling.
Not understanding what was happening, I jumped into bed and buried my face in the pillows. I woke the next morning with the distinct feeling that this was real and not a dream. There were still bits of dried blood in my nostril and for a few days after, the area just to the side of my nostril still hurt.
Deep under the skin like when a pimple is coming up. Then it went away. I know this happened to me, everything inside me says it was real.
I have no way of explaining it and I have no real way of filing it away in my mind like you would with a normal experience.
If any of your readers have had anything like this happen to them, would you please let me know because this experience has made me feel so alone. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was enjoying the fact that we were having some clear weather with partly cloudy skies. This was rare for us having constant daily wildfire smoke exposure for months on end, We often get low cloud cover over the Rolling Hills Estates location. I have a top floor apartment in a 5 story complex. My line of sight to the object was not obscured. However, I had a lot of difficulty focusing on the craft when I first spotted what I thought could be a blimp. What I thought I was seeing, was a eggshell or cream colored oval like a giant Go game piece with a pewter colored dull metallic base. I left my balcony window to find my binoculars. When I returned seconds later I saw the craft was gone. The cloud cover was very thin and the craft was nowhere to be seen. Now i was very disappointed. Next thing that happened was that it showed again….slightly closer to north skies but still over the Green Hills location. Object moving very very slowly while flickering or shimmering, much like a mirage even though the hill would not have been generating so much heat that day to cause heat waves. Before I could raise my binoculars to my eyes, there was an explosion of pinpoints of light expressed much like the way you would see points of light in a planetarium…but this was broad daylight mind you. What I first saw were these pinpoints of light randomly dancing or moving randomly. I had a feeling that was I was seeing was sentient communication. I asked the question out loud “What are you guys up to?”. The randomness then changed and the dancing of light looked more like a display of spermatozoa all swimming against the skyline. I laughed to myself and thought this was a whole new meaning for “pan-spermia”. As soon as I grasped the concept of fertilization, the lights shifted to a fixed positioned grid equally distant from each other and not dancing at all. I took this to mean that they were everywhere and all over the planet. At this time I was growing somewhat weary of the brightness I was witnessing. The last thing I saw was each point of light then returning to some location in the stratosphere. The lights gave the impression of returning from where they came from after the work was done. At this time I had to sit down for a spell and thought to myself the whole experience to be very simplistic in communication but overwhelming to the senses. I was fatigued and struggling to recoup from the snow blindness I was experiencing. I returned to the balcony with my cell phone to record the skyline as i was able to barely tune in and out some of these lights. Of course I have nothing on camera to show. The sighting of lights became harder and harder to focus on until I could see nothing out of the ordinary. And the original craft sighted was gone as well. I did some searches on the web and could find no buzz on the internet about my location on the date of occurrence. I was going to set this event aside and try to forget about it until I saw Coast Guard footage of a 1966 sighting over Catalina Island. The grainy footage in slow motion showing the craft blinking in and out of view was perhaps the same thing I was seeing before the light show started. It looked exactly the same. Now I am becoming a little obsessed with 1966 and what witnesses may have reported first hand. I will try and nail down the sighting date if I have any search history left from that day.

I was in a flight home from Japan, August 20,2018. We were a few hours into the flight to Chicago O’hare airport when a flight attendant, noticeably frantic, came walking down the aisle. Pretty much everybody was asleep with windows closed except me, watching a move with window open. The flight attendant was looking at every window, almost jogging to the back of the plane, saw my window open and sternly said, “Close the Window!” And hurried down the aisle. No please, thanks, etc. just a demanding tone. It Was weird because it was pitch black outside so couldn’t see anything anyway, but baffled, I closed my window. About 5-10 minutes passed and my curiosity forced me to open the window and the sky, for miles, was lit up by these glowing spheres of light. They were red, blue, green, and yellow, suspended above, below and in the clouds spread out over miles. The lights were so bright I could see the reflection on the ocean below. We were passing the last of the group of lights and I was able to dig out my phone fast enough to be able to get a picture. Took several but only one was useable and I couldn’t get a good angle to snap anymore. The camera made the picture really dark, but the lights were very bright and intense. Had the woman not told me to close my window, I would have been able to get solid video. The lights did not move, blink, dim, shiver or anything, it’s like they were huge Christmas lights just hung in the clouds. After about 10-15 minutes the woman came walking back to the front with none of the worry she had before. I could most likely pick that woman out of a line up today. I emailed a huge YouTube channel about it (which I will include in this) the day after, but never received any help. I’ve posted several times in various places, but not a single person has helped. I can’t find any photos or stories, in two years of searching, of anything remotely close to what I saw. The one and only time I found relevant information, was a couple months after, I was laying down watching tv about strange phenomena and they showed a picture from a planes cockpit flying through clouds that showed exactly what I saw. I know it was travel channel, discovery or history channel, but can’t remember the shows title and have never come across it again despite my constant searching. So that’s the only other photo/evidence of exactly what I saw, that it is out there if I could only find it again. The first is the actual image, 2-4 are of the exact email I sent the day after with a photo of my return flight ticket, 5 is the screen capture of the photo with the exact time and date I took it.
One of the very last cases reported to Bluebook that was labeled as unidentified occurred in Meridian, Mississippi.
Philip Lanning was driving south of town, on the evening of July 10, 1967, when his car coasted to a stop and the radio faded.
Lanning got out and started to look at the car engine, when an enormous object flew over his head about 300 feet in the air. The object was silent and moving to the east. Lanning thought the object was about to crash.
Just before the object reached a group of nearby trees, it tilted upward, turned right and then accelerated at great speed straight up into the low-flying clouds.
The object was described as being ‘like a cymbal on a drum set and was a dirty metallic gray in color on the underside’. He saw no portholes or hatches and said that it appeared to the size of house.
Lanning wasn’t sure who would be interested in the report, but he felt that it should be sent to someone in the US Government, so he forwarded it to a friend in Navel Intelligence. The Air Force eventually received it and began an investigation.
They were impressed with Lanning as a witness as he was a former military officer who had received a great deal of training. After extensive research and interviews, the Air Force was forced to label this sighting as unidentified.
This was one of the very last reports in Bluebook to receive that tag. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Over 60 years before alien abduction claims became mainstream, two people were nearly abducted in Lodi, California.
Colonel H. G. Shaw, along with his friend Camille Spooner, had a close encounter with previously unknown entities, traveling with their UFO in 1896.
Shaw was in charge of putting together an exhibition to be displayed at a Fair in Fresno.
Shaw and friend were traveling by horse and carriage in route to Stockton, when their horse froze with fright.
To the two men’s shock, they saw the cause of the horse’s actions; three tall alien looking beings with small delicate hands at the end of their spindly arms stood by the road. They had no hair on their heads, yet a soft, light fuzz over their bodies. Large eyes made their small mouths and ears appear even smaller.
The two eyewitnesses would later tell authorities that the beings had a “strange” type of beauty to them.
All of the beings carried with them a bag of some kind with a hose which they often stuck in their mouths, obviously to breath with. Although there was still some daytime left, the beings also carried with them egg-shaped lamps which glowed. This glow would later illuminate a waiting spaceship.
As the men watched the aliens, the beings were communicating with each other by a type of chant, as no English words were heard by Shaw and Spooner. The men would tell authorities that the aliens made an attempt to abduct them, but that the large difference in mass between the human and alien body thwarted the effort.
Soon, the three alien beings made a move toward a nearby bridge. Using their other worldly lamps, the aliens lighted up the bridge, showing a nearby craft. The UFO was of a cigar shape, and it hovered quietly over the water.
The beings seemed to be almost lighter than air as they moved toward their craft. It seemed that the aliens would almost leave the ground as they walked on the earth.
The beings entered the hovering cigar UFO in a most unconventional way also. They sprung up from the ground and above their craft, and then floated down into the craft through an unseen entry. Soon, the object flew away.
Shaw later told investigators that, in his opinion, the craft had come from Mars, a common theory for the time. This unusual case occurred on November 25, and was reported by Jenny Randles, in “Alien Contacts and Abductions.” NOTE” The above image is CGI.
KENS NOTE: Alien entities have been around for millions of years. Our corrupt goverment has been hiding the truth for many decades. We will never get the truth from our lying politicians and this is why we have to find the evidence through research.
I was driving our VW bus going back east on the southern route. My family was asleep in the back. No traffic was on the road. I saw the UFO about a 1/4 mile away, parallel to me. It seemed to be scanning the desert with beams of light. I saw it, and noted to myself that it was probably a UFO. Instantly it was right next to me, about ten feet off of the ground, moving east parallel to me. It was silver metal in color, and had a cigar shape, but slanted down at the ends. It had a band of yellow light about three feet wide, running the entire length of the ship. Within the band of light, as it pulsated or swirled around the ship were large porthole windows that were stationary. In seconds a tall, Aryan looking being appeared in the porthole and looked at me, acknowledging my presence. Moments afterward, several small gray aliens with large eyes came to the porthole and also looked at me. I initially thought about stopping to experience them. I became frightened and decided to keep driving, because I worried about the safety of my wife and child. The ship allowed me to get away without following me further. It vanished in a fraction of a second. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A man was watching a YouTube video which was listed as being 10 minutes in duration. He sensed that something came through the basement where he was watching the video. He came to 3 hours later not knowing what had happened. There were other people in the house, but they were all upstairs. The other people in the house didn’t see anything unusual. The man said that he felt like he has been “watched and followed” for sometime which has caused him to be quite frightened. The next day the man’s next door neighbor came by and showed him a photo of a triangular object that he saw in the sky. The photo was taken during the time that the witnessed experienced his time loss.
Observed red lights through the trees coming up the river from a southerly direction heading North. My seven yr. old saw it first, and asked if it was a car. I turned and looked at the road, and he said, “No, up there”. We all turned and looked up and saw the object through the trees. Object made no sound. Object appeared to be rectangular. Would light up all red light, then totally black, light up all red, then totally black. Object came into our full view after passing trees in front of us. Object was approx. 150-200 ft. above the water, maybe more. We had a clear view of the object for at least 5 minutes. Object was observed by two adults aged 50 and 48, and 3 children aged 7 and 10. We had plenty of time to observe and rule out what we knew it wasn’t, It was no plane, propeller or jet. It was not a helicopter. There was no sound at all. Just all red to black. I would guess object was maybe 50 ft. or so, hard to say. The only way I came up with that size is by comparing it to boats I see on the river. I would guess it was maybe 200 ft. above the water, our house is on a hill above the water, so the object was very clear and only a little above us. It was about 200 yards away in the air. It went straight, came level with us and slowly turned to it’s right and went in an easterly direction and just went that way until it went out of our view. Made no sound, I cannot guess it’s speed, but way too slow for a plane. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
What did I video, in space last night, with my Nikon P1000 camera. Notice the 5 spokes within the wheel. It did not move and was stationary like a star or planet, which I thought it was. It was straight up in the night sky and was one of the brighter objects next to some stars. I have video and photos of it from around a half hour period. Was going to see if it was in the same spot last night, however there was complete cloud cover. I thought it was a star when I zoomed in on it with my Nikon P1000 camera on full zoom. It does not seem like a lens flare as it has the same position of the spokes and holes in every photo, video and zoom range. I posted it on Facebook and Twitter yesterday and no one knew what it was. The footage is unaltered straight off the camera and you can hear the crickets and my AC unit in the background, and a train in the background of the first video. Here are two separate videos. The first one I was having difficulty zooming in. Every time I zoomed in too close the object would literally start to fade away. You can see the outer band rotating clockwise if you move one frame at a time, while the inner 5 spokes stay stationary. The second video I didn’t zoom in as close and kept in frame as I slowly zoomed in.
KENS NOTE: I was able to extract the image from the video. One of the best alien orbs I have ever seen.
MARCH 16, 1967…………..MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE MONTANA
In central Montana, Thursday morning March 16 1967, the E-Flight Missile Combat Crew was below ground in the Echo-Flight Launch Control Center (LCC) or capsule. During the early morning hours, more than one report came in from security patrols and maintenance crews that they had seen UFOs.
A UFO was reported directly above one of the E-Flight Launch Facilities (LF) or silos. It turned out that at least one security policeman was so frightened by this encounter that he never again returned to security duty.
A short time later, the Deputy Crew Commander (DMCCC), a 1st Lieutenant, was briefing the Crew Commander (MCCC), a Captain, on the flight status when the alarm horn sounded. Over the next half-minute, all ten of their missiles reported a “No-Go” condition. One by one across the board, each missile had became inoperable,
From there on, as an ex-Missileer describes it: “All Hell broke loose!” Among the many calls to and from the E-Flight LCC one was to the MCCC of November-Flight which links to the equally dramatic story of what happened in another LCC that same morning.
In this case we have shutdown of strategic nuclear missiles coincident with UFO sighting over a missile silo! These were missiles lost to America’s nuclear deterrent forces.
The following section is as told by Robert Salas who was the DMCCC in N-Flight that morning. My recollection is that, while on duty as a Deputy Missile Combat Crew Commander below ground in the LCC, during the morning hours of 16 March 1967 I received a call from the Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in charge of Launch Control Center site security.
He said that he and other guards had observed unidentified flying objects in the vicinity which had over flown the LCC a few times. He could only distinguish them as ‘lights’ at that time.
I did not take this report seriously and directed him to keep observing and report back if anything more significant happened. I believed this first call to be a joke.
A few minutes later, the security NCO called again. He was now agitated and distraught saying that a UFO was hovering just outside the front gate. I directed him to secure the fenced area. As we were talking, he had to go because one of the guards had approached the UFO and had been injured.
I immediately woke my commander from his rest period and started to report the phone conversations. Immediately, our missiles began shutting down from ‘alert’ status to ‘No-Go’ status in rapid succession. None of the four or five missiles which faulted came back on line. Some signal had been sent to the missiles which caused them to go off alert status.
After reporting this incident to the Command Post, I phoned my security guard. He said that the man who had approached the UFO had not been injured seriously but was being evacuated by helicopter to the base. Once topside, I spoke directly with the security guard about the UFOs.
He added that the UFO had a red glow and appeared to be saucer shaped. He repeated that it had been immediately outside the front gate, hovering silently.
We sent a security patrol to check our LFs after the shutdown, and they reported sighting another UFO during that patrol. They also lost radio contact with our site immediately after reporting the UFO.
We were relieved by our scheduled replacement crew later that morning. The missiles had still not been brought on line by on-site maintenance teams.
Again, UFOs were sighted by security personnel at or about the time Minuteman Strategic missiles shutdown.
An in-depth investigation of the E-Flight incident was undertaken. Full scale on-site and laboratory tests at Boeing’s Seattle plant were conducted. Both declassified Strategic Missile Wing documents and interviews with Boeing engineers who conducted tests following the E-Flight Incident investigation confirm that no cause for the missile shutdowns was ever found.
The most that could be done was to reproduce the effects by directly introducing a 10 volt pulse onto a data line. One conclusion was that the only way this could be done from outside the shielded system was through an electromagnetic pulse from an unknown source.
During the events of that morning in 1967, UFOs were sighted by security personnel at the November Flight LCC and at one N-Flight LF, and by other security personnel at Echo-Flight LFs. These sightings were reported separately to the capsule crews at both LCCs at or about the same time Minuteman Strategic missiles shut down at both sites.
USAF has confirmed that all of Echo flights’ missiles shutdown within seconds of each other and that no cause for this could be found.
For many years, the Air Force has maintained that no reported UFO incident has ever affected national security. It is established fact that a large number of Air Force personnel reported sighting UFOs at the time many of our strategic missiles became unlaunchable.
The incidents described above clearly had national security implications. In one previously classified message, SAC Headquarters described the E-Flight incident as: loss of strategic alert of all ten missiles within ten seconds of each other for no apparent reason and a “…cause for grave concern…(to SAC headquarters).” (emphasis ours)
There is a great discrepancy between the United States Air Force’s public position relative to UFOs and national security, and the established facts of this case. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Night of 12/14/20 at roughly 11:30pm I went outside my home to attempt to observe activity from the Leonid Meteor Shower. A few minutes in I observed at object shimmering/pulsating to the South of my home at a high elevation. Watching the object over a 25-30 minute window I observed it moving diagonal as well as north to south over its flight path, as well as hover for durations of time. It’s movements and pulsating light were like nothing I’ve ever seen before. In way could this object be confused for conventional, military aircraft, drones or helicopters. Their was no sound from the object. I took photos of the object with and without a flash, as well as recorded two 40 second videos of the object showing it in relations to the stars in the night sky as well as discussing its movement. The unflashed photo showed an object without any common mechanics of planes, etc. ask the flashed Verizon should the auro surrounding a spherical object.
This case is under investigation by Bob Spearing, State Section Director for MUFON New Jersey.
Saw cylindrical object with thicker fore and aft sections that were larger diameter than middle section, with blackish details (which may have been shadows) on silvery metallic surface areas. Noted immediately it had no wings. No control surfaces such as tail rudder or elevator. First viewed in Northeast flying in straight line toward me at about the same height and speed as a small plane, then at closest point almost directly overhead. Sun was going down in west so object was in full light. Only saw it because I had been observing particularly interesting cloud formations of several different kinds.

In an exclusive feature for The Debrief, U.S. military and intelligence officials, as well as Pentagon emails, offer an unprecedented glimpse behind the scenes of what’s currently going on with The Pentagon’s investigation into UFOs, or as they term them, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP).
For the last two years, the Department of Defense’s newly revamped “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” (or UAPTF) has been busy briefing lawmakers, Intelligence Community stakeholders, and the highest levels of the U.S. military on encounters with what they say are mysterious airborne objects that defy conventional explanations.
Along with classified briefings, multiple senior U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter say two classified intelligence reports on UAP have been widely distributed to the U.S. Intelligence Community. Numerous sources from various government agencies told The Debrief that these reports include clear photographic evidence of UAP. The reports also explicitly state that the Task Force is considering the possibility that these unidentified objects could, as stated by one source from the U.S. Intelligence Community said, be operated by “intelligences of unknown origin.”
Significantly, a retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general and head of RAND corporation’s Space Enterprise Initiative has—for the first time—gone on record to discuss some of the most likely explanations for UAP. His responses were surprising.
BRIEFINGS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS
In June, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s FY2021 Intelligence Authorization Act contained an intriguing section titled report on “Advanced Aerial Threats.” In the inclusion, the committee gave an eye-opening official hint (in recent history) the government takes UFOs seriously by offering its support for the “efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligence.” The Intelligence Committee additionally requested an unclassified report detailing the analysis of “UAP” or “Anomalous Aerial Vehicles.”
Though already acknowledged by the Intelligence Committee, in mid-August, the Pentagon formally acknowledged they had established a task force looking into UAP. In a press announcement, the Secretary of Defense’s Office stated, “the UAPTF’s mission will be to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.” According to the release, authority for the Task Force was approved by the DoD’s chief operating officer, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist.
The summer news of the establishment of the UAPTF seemingly suggests—for the first time since the shuttering of Project Blue Book (the Air Force’s official investigations into UFOs) in 1969—that the Pentagon is now taking the subject of UFOs seriously.
However, an internal email obtained by The Debrief shows that almost one year before the DoD’s announcement, the highest levels of the U.S. military were already being briefed on UAP.
The email, obtained via Freedom of Information Act request, shows an October 16th, 2019 exchange between then Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Robert Burke, and current Vice Chief of Staff for the Air Force General Stephen “Steve” Wilson.
In the email, Adm. Burke tells Gen. Wilson, “Recommend you take the brief I just received from our Director of Naval Intelligence VADM Matt Kohler, on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).” Adm. Burke concludes the email, “SECNAV [Secretary of the Navy] will get the same brief tomorrow at 1000.”
The “SECNAV” referenced in Adm. Burke’s email was then-Secretary of the Navy, Richard V. Spencer. A little over a month after this UAP briefing, Spencer was fired by then-Secretary of Defense Mark Esper over public disagreements stemming from a series of controversies involving the court-martial of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
Speaking on background, one U.S. Defense official lamented that a lack of continuity with DoD leadership might have hindered some of the UAPTF’s work. Within the past 24 months, there have been four different Secretaries of the Navy and five additional Secretaries of Defense. Vice Admiral Matt Kohler, noted for having provided the briefings, retired after 36 years with the Navy in June of this year.
Reaching out to several active government officials and individuals who retain their government-issued security clearances, The Debrief learned that last fall was a busy time for the UAPTF. On October 21st, 2019, a briefing on UAP was conducted at the Pentagon for several Senate Armed Services Committee staffers.
Attendees at the meeting told The Debrief that they were provided information on two previous DoD-backed UFO programs: The Advanced Aerial Weapons Systems Applications Program (AAWSAP) and the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). They were also briefed on “highly sensitive categories of UFO investigations.” Only two days later on October 23rd, staffers with the Senate Select Intelligence Committee were provided the same information in a meeting on Capitol Hill.
A former private contractor for AAWSAP and AATIP, Dr. Hal Puthoff, confirmed for The Debrief he was one of a handful of persons who conducted the October briefings. “I have been invited to brief congressional staffers on the Senate Armed Services Committee on UAP matters in the last couple of years,” Puthoff said in an email, “and have done so on more than one occasion.” Dr. Puthoff described the staffers during these meetings as being “engaged,” and provided “positive responses, [and] more details always being requested.”
The Debrief reached out to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Office and DoD Executive Services Office and formally requested an interview with someone authorized to speak on the UAP briefings with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In an email, Senior Strategist and Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough responded, “To maintain operations security, which includes not disseminating information publicly that may be useful to our adversaries, DOD does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examination of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP – and that includes not discussing the UAPTF publicly, also.”
Official public affairs channels indicate the Pentagon is not interested in sharing any more information on the UAP topic. However, several current and former officials with the DoD and individuals working for multiple U.S. intelligence agencies told The Debrief that there was much more going on behind closed doors.
8:35 p.m. local. This is a very interesting close encounter and one of FUFOR’s top cases. And, this one may have a nuclear connection. A huge, gunmetal gray, football-shaped object that was rocking back and forth was first observed by five people. Then the object began moving; swinging one end toward the shore and descending. The witnesses became frightened, ran back to their car and fled. When they got home, the object was still visible from a window that faced the lake. The object moved out over the ice and continued to descend, with red and blue lights now flashing in sequence along its lower edge. At one point triangular objects darted around the parent craft, then headed east toward the Perry nuclear power plant. One witness called the Eastlake police to report a UFO, and was finally referred to the Coast Guard. Coast Guard personnel saw the object and reported that it appeared to be landing on the lake.

An extraordinary event in 1967 would practically put the small fishing village of Shag Harbor on the map. Located at the southern tip of Nova Scotia, this rural community would be host to one of the best documented UFO events of the past 40 years.
Named after the “shag,” a bird of the cormorant family, the harbor was literally left off most maps of the time, but that would be changed once and for all.
The tiny fishing community has always had its stories… stories of giant sea serpents, man-eating squid, and ghost ships. The list of local color would see one more addition to its list: a story of a visit of a mysterious flying craft of unknown origin. This craft would visit the waters of Shag Harbor, permanently stamping the village’s name in the public eye.
The first indication of this mysterious occurrence would come from local residents who noticed strange orange lights in the sky on the night of October 4, 1967. Most witnesses agreed that there were four orange lights that evening. Five teenagers watched these lights flash in sequence, and then suddenly dive in a 45 degree angle toward the water’s surface. The witnesses were surprised that the lights did not dive into the water, but seemed to float on the water, approximately one-half mile from the shore.
Witnesses at first thought they were watching a tragic airplane crash, and quickly reported as much to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which was located at Barrington Passage. Coincidently, RCMP Constable Ron Pound had already witnessed the strange lights himself as he drove down Highway 3 in route to Shag Harbor. Pound felt that he was seeing 4 lights, all attached to one flying craft. He estimated the craft to be about 60 feet long.
Constable Pound made his way to the shore to get a closer look at the phenomenal sight. He was accompanied by Police Corporal Victor Werbieki, Contable Ron O’Brien, and other local residents. Pound clearly saw a yellow light slowly moving on the water, leaving a yellowish foam in its wake. All eyes were glued on the light, as it slowly either moved too distant to be seen, or dipped into the icy waters.
Coast Guard Cutter #101 and other local boats rushed to the spot of the sighting, but by the time they arrived, the light itself was gone. However, the crewmen could still see the yellow foam, indicating that something had possibly submerged. Nothing else could be found that night, and the search was called off at 3:00 AM.
The RCMP ran a traffic check with the Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifac, and NORAD radar at Baccaro, Nova Scotia. They were told that there were no missing aircraft reported that evening, either civilian, or military.
The following day, the Rescue Coordination Center filed a report with Canadian Forces Headquarters in Ottawa. This report stated that something had hit the water in Shag Harbor, but the object was of “unknown origin.”
The HMCS Granby was ordered to the location, where divers searched the bottom of the ocean for several days, but without positive results.
Soon, the story of the mysterious crash at Shag Harbor died as quickly as it had begun. That is, until 1993. As the original story faded from papers and newscasts, several theories were put forward. One explanation was that a Russian spacecraft had crashed, which would explain the presence of a Russian submarine in the area. There was also the rumor of American involvement in the follow-up investigation, but there was no official statement from the United States.
The Shag Harbor incident would have new life breathed into it through the efforts of MUFON investigator Chris Styles. The case intrigued him so much that he decided to search for more details. Styles found the names of many of the original witnesses through newspaper clippings, and was able to interview many of them.
Styles was assisted by MUFON investigator Doug Ledger. These two men would uncover some extremely compelling evidence through their interviews. They discovered that when the divers of the Granby finished their work, the case was not over, after all.
The divers, along with other witnesses related these events: The object that dove into the waters of the harbor had soon left the Shag area, traveling underwater for about 25 miles to a place called Government Point, which was near a submarine detection base. The object was spotted on sonar there, and Naval vessels were positioned over it. After a couple of days, the military was planning a salvage operation, when a second UFO joined the first. Common belief at the time was that the second craft had arrived to render aid to the first.
At this time, the Navy decided to wait and watch. After about a week of monitoring the two UFOs, some of the vessels were called to investigate a Russian submarine which had entered Canadian waters. At this point, the two underwater craft made their move. They made their way to the Gulf of Maine, and putting distance between themselves and the chasing Navy boats, they broke the surface, and shot away into the skies.
These extraordinary events were corroborated by many witnesses, both civilian and military. Unfortunately, the reports were given “off the record.” Ex-military personnel feared the loss of their pensions, and civilian witnesses feared ridicule, and their privacy being invaded. The unusual events of Shag Harbor command an important place in the study of UFOs. There is little doubt that something “unknown” crashed into the waters of Shag Harbor on October 4, 1967.

Location of Sighting: Near Medellin, Antioquia, Colombia Date of Sighting: January 1, 2020 Time of Sighting: 11 AM Local Time –
Description: The above link is is a short article about a sighting, published in social media by a Colombian pilot. The aircraft was flying at 30,000 ft when the crew noticed an object that was not registered in their flight pattern. Some people say it was a weather balloon or some other kind of high altitude balloon. But the metallic appearance and geometry of the object is quite intriguing. The date of the sighting and the location are indicated in a Colombian news article that was not referenced in the linked one.
Note: The object in the video IS NOT A WEATHER BALLOON nor was it likely any other kind of balloon! This object was in CONTROLLED AIRSPACE AND CONSTITUTES A SAFETY ISSUE! The above photo was copied from the link listed in the report above.
OCTOBER 26, 1967………………..MOIGNE DOWNS, DORSET ENGLAND
Probably the most famous UFO sighting during the British wave of 1967 was the report by former RAF intelligence officer J. B. W. ‘Angus’ Brooks.
While walking his dogs in the early morning of 26 October at Moigne Downs in Dorset, he witnessed an object descending at phenomenal speed before abruptly levelling out at a height of approximately 250 feet, some quarter of a mile from where he was positioned.
Brooks described the object as a central circular body with a leading fuselage in the front and three separate fuselages at the rear. During the period of observation the three rear fuselages moved so that with the fourth fuselage they formed a cross shape.
Brooks reported no obvious power units or noise and despite a very strong wind, up to Force 8, the object apparently remained motionless for over twenty minutes.
During the encounter one of Angus Brooks’ dogs, an Alsatian, was very distraught and frantically pawed at him, disobeying his commands to sit.
A team of researchers from the Ministry of Defence, Dr John Dickinson of the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough, Leslie Akhurst from S4 (Air) and Alec Cassie, a psychologist, interviewed Mr Brooks and offered their explanation.
He had seen a vitreous floater, i.e. dead matter in the fluid of his eyeball, the sighting of which had become dramatic due to Brooks’ falling asleep or entering a near sleep state and dreaming.
Brooks seems to have been less than impressed with the MOD’s explanation and not least the idea that he had dozed off to sleep during a Force 8 gale with an Alsatian clawing at him. NOTE: The above image is the witness drawing.
KENS NOTE: As you can see, buy this article, debunkers offer the most stupid explanations. They always offer suggestions without proof. They have one job only and that is to debunk all UFO sightings. The Goverments of many nations are guilty of this including the United States. Drones were non existant in 1967……..
Neil Armstrong & Edwin “Buzz” AldrinAccording to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong the Aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon.
According to hitherto un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a “light” in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard.
According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA’s broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
NASA: Whats there? Mission Control calling Apollo 11…
Apollo11: These “Babies” are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD! You wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there, Lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They’re on the Moon watching us!
A certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium.
Professor: What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?
Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known there was a possibility, the fact is, we were warned off!(by the Aliens). There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city.
Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?
Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, were they big!…and menacing! No, there is no question of a space station.
Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and back again.
According to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha:
“Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the moon module. But this message was never heard by the public — because NASA censored it.”
According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside.
KENS NOTE: Personally I feel we did not go to the Moon in 1969. I think some of these photos and stories have been fabricated to add credibility that we did go to the Moon. See my web site HTTP://www.worldufophotosandnews.org and see the many photos disproving that we did go to Moon.
PHOTOS OF SOME STRANGE OBJECTS ON THE MOON NOT TAKEN BY THE ASTRONAUTS……
October 24, 1967-Location – A3072 between Okehampton and Holsworthy, Devon. Two on duty uniformed police officers, PC Clifford Waycott and PC Roger Willey had spotted a pulsating flying cross while driving between the above locations. It was seen at low altitude moving above the treetops of the surrounding countryside.
Intrigued, they began to chase the UFO, however they were never able to significantly gain on it. At times the object slowed to 50 mph and at one point came to a stop in mid air. The pursuit involved speeds of up to 90 mph and covered a distance of 14 miles.
Whenever they did gain a little ground on the object it would simply accelerate away from them. Eventually they reduced their speed fearing an accident themselves.
The closest distance they reached to the UFO was 400 yards. At one point they stopped at a farm to wake up the owner so they could gain some corroboration that they were not mistaken in their sighting.
At a later press conference PC WAYCOTT said, “The light wasn’t piercing but it was very bright. It was star-spangled – just like looking through wet glass and although we reached 90 mph it accelerated away from us.”
Before the object disappeared from view they saw a second UFO that was also cross-shaped, very bright and made no noise. Both officers were impressed by the relevant speeds of the objects as they quickly departed, especially the first one.
Enquiries at nearby RAF Chivenor proved negative. Within 48 hours numerous other witnesses began to report sightings of similar objects. A ‘fiery cross’ was witnessed above the skies of Glossop, Derbyshire by six police officers. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
One of the weirdest alien abduction accounts there is began in the early morning hours of April 6, 1974, in the remote farming town of Kitami, in Hokkaido, Japan. On this dark morning, a farmer by the name of Yoshihiro Fujiwara was sound asleep in his bed when he was pulled from his dreams by the sudden pounding of someone at his door and his dog barking and howling outside. Considering his was a fairly isolated farmstead in the middle of nowhere, it was odd indeed to get visitors at 3 in the morning, and the rather annoyed Fujiwara at first thought it was merely some kids messing around. There would have been no reason in this safe little hamlet to think it was anything else, and he trudged to the door to fling it open to a sight that would change him forevermore. And so would begin one of the most flat-out bizarre and controversial alien encounter reports that Japan has ever seen.
There standing in the chilly early morning darkness was a diminutive, 3-foot-tall being dressed in a clear one-piece suit that seemed to be made of transparent vinyl, and the thing itself was only passingly humanoid, resembling what the witness would later call a combination of “starfish and human,” with four tentacle-like appendages, a bulbous head reminiscent of an octopus clad in a blue helmet, slanted eyes, and a strange V-shaped set of nostrils, the whole of it covered with mottled brown and slimy, bumpy toad-like skin and rested on two of its stalk-like limbs and rounded nubs for feet. It was completely silent and motionless, except for its weird conical helmet had antenna jutting from it, which generated a visible electrical humming charge that ominously rippled through the air.
The startled farmer and this anomalous being stood there for several moments merely staring at each other, perhaps each as surprised as the other, before that strange frozen moment in time was shattered by a sudden movement from the creature as it flicked one of its tendrils to point up towards the sky. This was followed by a ray of blinding light that washed over everything, generating a profound heat that sent the frightened farmer reeling back into his house to slam the door shut. A quick look outside showed that the brilliant orange colored light was emanating from an illuminated disc-like craft that measured around 26 feet across and was apparently shooting off beams of orange light.
If Fujiwara thought he was safe merely gawking from his window at this outlandish sight he was wrong, as he suddenly felt his feet being pulled forward by some inexplicable force. At first he was merely dragged across the floor, much to his amazement, but then he allegedly began to hover, before finally being levitated fully off the ground to go flying out of the window and towards the inscrutable floating disc with its scintillating beams of light. He was drawn faster and faster towards the object, seemingly on a collision course, but rather than smack against its metallic side he found himself being drawn through its walls to be dumped upon the floor of the craft.
The interior of the craft was described as being bright blue, with some sort of writing on the walls that the farmer could not fathom and the whole of it all overlaid with a repulsive stink that made him feel lightheaded. It was then that two creatures identical to the one who had freaked him out at his doorstep approached him to tell him telepathically, “No danger. We promise to release you at your home.” As peaceful as this sounded, the two entities nevertheless made to grab him and forcefully hold him down, upon which Fujiwara felt the fear left him and his survival instinct take over, tearing away and dashing through an open hatchway to go careening through air to the ground below, which luckily for him was only around 10 feet down.
Fujiwara vaguely recognized that he was around 2 miles from where he had left, and went running wildly towards the house of a person he knew in the area, who let him in. It was at their house that he would realize that a full hour had passed, even though to him it seemed that it had been mere moments since he had been taken aboard the strange craft by its odd octopoid inhabitants. Although the experience had been baffling and not a little terrifying, Fujiwara was at least relieved that it was over, and he quietly went back to his home to try and find some way to get over what had just occurred. Little did he know at the time that it was not quite over just yet.
The very next evening, Fujiwara was sitting alone in his house, his thoughts no doubt wandering back to those strange tentacled dwarves and their otherworldly craft, when he was suddenly overcome with a sharp pain worming its way through his ears and fingertips. He felt himself slipping into a daze, and for some reason his hands took on a life of their own and began to scrawl strange letters onto a piece of paper of their own volition. This was all followed by a voice that reverberated through his skull, which commanded him, “When the disc lands on the mountain you will come and board by yourself,” which was accompanied by a potent vision of the area they wished him to come to, left blazing into his mind. After that the pain abruptly left, leaving Fujiwara there shaken and with bizarre hieroglyphics etched onto paper by his hand but the meanings of which he did not know.
The farmer took the voice’s command as being the nearby Nikoro Mountain, and although he was still frightened by his ordeal he felt a compulsion to go there to see what would happen. To this end, he gathered up some supplies and two companions to join him and they set out, unsure of what awaited them up on that lonely peak. Fujiwara apparently then made his way alone to the area he had seen in his vision, where there awaited that same luminous disc-shaped craft and he boarded it without a fight. Once aboard, the aliens then supposedly took him on a flight into space, flying around the moon and around the earth twice, all within about the space of an hour. When they returned from their dizzying journey the farmer then lost consciousness, after which he was apparently just left lying there on the mountainside for his friends to find.
This wasn’t even the end of it all, as Fujiwara would claim that the last trip had left him with strange telekinetic powers that allowed him to move objects and bend spoons, and he was telepathically invited on yet another excursion on April 13, 1974. This time the bizarre beings took him on a journey that went around the planet Jupiter, as well as the moon of Saturn, Titan, where one of the creatures would allegedly go out to retrieve a rock from the surface as a souvenir for him to keep.
This mysterious rock would go on to prove to be rather controversial, indeed. It was sent to scientists for analysis, but came back as just one of the many common rocks from a Kitami cave, which brought a fair amount of ridicule down on Fujiwara and his astounding tale. In the meantime, the farmer would begin to address himself as the earthly representative of the “Summon Call Space Union,” and he claimed that his telepathic powers increased exponentially, allowing him to levitate objects, predict catastrophes, and even teleport across vast distances, of which he would say:
I can teleport to a star 250 million light years away in 6 minutes. My role is delaying natural disasters such as earthquakes and eruptions.
He would also claim that he could actually travel within the earth to stop volcanic eruptions, and pull together tectonic plates to prevent earthquakes. It is all totally bizarre to say the least, but one Japanese UFO researcher named Ninichi Arai has offered evidence that there was something to this when he found that several other locals who did not know Fujiwara also reported seeing strange lights in the skies during the same time frame, and there were others who claimed to have been first hand witnesses to the farmer’s mental powers, somewhat corroborating his weird tales. Was this all the doing of entities from another world or merely the tripping of balls? Is there anything to this account or is Fujiwara a a disturbed individual and unreliable witness? It is hard to know for sure, but it is a wild ride all the same, and goes to show that alien abduction accounts can be truly surreal affairs to be sure. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Guy Tossie and Will Begay, two Indian youths, were driving south on Highway 26 just outside Ririe on November 2, 1967, when, about 9:30 p.m., there was a sudden blinding flash of light in front of their car, followed by the abrupt appearance of a small, domed UFO. The dome was transparent and in it were seen two small, strange-looking occupants.
The car was brought to a stop – Begay, driving, did not have to apply the brakes – and the object hovered about five feet above the highway immediately ahead of them. It was about eight feet wide, and flashed green and orange lights around the rim. The area was bathed in a vivid green light.
The dome opened as if hinged and one creature emerged, apparently floating to the ground. It was about three and a half feet tall, and on its back was a kind of pack that protruded above and behind its head. Its face was oval and heavily pitted and creased. Two small, round eyes and a straight, slit-like mouth completed the facial features. Large ears stood high on the hairless head.
Approaching the driver’s side of the car, the alleged being opened the door and slid behind the wheel. Horrified, the two witnesses pushed over to the right. The car began to move – whether driven by the being or “towed” by the UFO was uncertain. It was taken well out into a field of stubble wheat, and the UFO kept a fixed position a few feet in front of it.
As the car stopped, Tossie, sitting next to the door, suddenly opened it and bolted, running for the nearby farmhouse of Willard Hammon about a quarter of a mile away. He later reported being followed by a bright light – presumably carried by the second occupant.
Meanwhile, in the car, Begay cowered in the front seat in a state of near-shock while the first creature jabbered unintelligibly at him, making sounds that were high and rapid, “like a bird.” The second being, who had apparently given up chasing Tossie, returned to the car. The first then got out, and the two beings “rose up and into the UFO,” which then ascended in a zigzag path.
Meanwhile, at the home of Willard Hammon, Tossie could scarcely make himself understood by the astounded farmer and his family. After having calmed the Indian down, they accompanied him back to the field, where they found the car. Begay was sitting nearly speechless with fright, his eyes tightly closed.
The engine was running and the lights were still on – about 15 minutes had elapsed from the moment the young men had seen the flash. Hammon listened to their story and then followed the frightened youths home in his car.
Perplexed, he later stopped in a local bar and grill to see if he could learn anything more. While there, a county deputy sheriff stopped in and Hammon told him the story.
Later, both witnesses also came by and voluntarily told the deputy sheriff, in their own words, what had happened. State Police were summoned and an investigation was begun. It was discovered that a number of local farmers had reported that their cattle had bolted during the evening for unknown reasons. Others claimed to have seen lights in the area.
The report was investigated for NICAP by C.R. Ricks, of Idaho Falls. During his investigation, he learned of a man who claimed that, on the same night, he had a similar encounter. Ricks eventually tracked this man down and confirmed the report, although the witness was emphatic about not revealing his name, and was reluctant about discussing the details of his encounter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
It all began in 1937-1938, in the mountains of Baian-Kara-Ula, the remote, uninviting slopes located on the border that divides China and Tibet. An archaeological expedition, led by the highly respected Chi Pu Tei, discovered a number of unique cave burial sites. What he and his team found in these previously unknown caves would soon be considered as something highly unusual. For many it would represent one of the greatest discoveries of the century, and change everything they perceived about their distant past and their origins as a people. Those who believed in the Genesis of the Bible only saw the so-called “scientific evidence” as possible proof of another creation of God intruding into Mankind’s domain. By faith, this domain and any other living, thinking beings came from the one God worshiped by Christian and Jew alike.
Chi Pu Tei, a professor of archaeology at Beijing University, directed the archaeological survey of a series of interlinking caves. In a report he noted that the “caves” may have been artificially carved, and were more like a complex system of tunnels and underground storerooms. The walls were squared and glazed, as if cut into the mountain with a source of extreme heat. Inside the caves were several ancient, but neatly arranged burial sites, and in them the skeletal remains of a people; a strange people. The skeletons, measuring a little more than four feet tall, were found “frail and spindly” with “disproportionately large” skulls. At first it was suggested that these might be the remains of an unknown species of mountain gorilla. Fellow researchers initially ridiculed Tei’s published findings. The concept of gorillas burying their young was preposterous, but that left one important question to ponder: “What kind of human beings could these people have been?” “Were they human at all?”
More discoveries made deeper in the connectiing caves eliminated the possibility that apes had lived there. On the walls carved pictograms of the heavens were found. The Earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars were there, and all were connected by pea-sized dots. It was obvious that the pictures were meant to be a map or chart of some kind, and that they were created by intelligent beings.
The team then made what was called “the most incredible discovery of all.” Half buried in the dirt floor of each cave they found unusual disks, originally referred to as “odd stone disks” and described as “obviously fashioned by the hand of an intelligent creature.” These disks were approximately nine inches in diameter and three-quarters of an inch thick. In the exact center was a perfectly round 3/4 inch hole, and etched into its face was a fine groove spiraling out from the center to the rim, making the disk look like some kind of “primitive phonograph record.”
One of the best preserved disks was dated to between 10,000 and 12,000 years BC old, older by far than even the oldest estimates of the age of the great pyramids of Egypt. This was incredible news, but what was to come would be even more remarkable. A final total of 716 such plates were found, and each held its own mystery. The grooves, upon closer inspection, were not grooves at all, but a continuous line of an unknown writing!
Many experts tried to translate the hieroglyphs in the 20 years the disc lay in Peking. They all failed. It was not until another professor, Dr. Tsum Um Nui, broke the code and started to decipher the ‘speaking grooves’ that the full implications of the disc were realized. Realized, that is, only by a select few. The outside world remained in ignorance. For the professor’s conclusions on the meaning of the disc were so shattering that they were officially suppressed. The stone disks told an astonishing story of a ‘space probe’ by the inhabitants of another planet which came to crash in the Bayan-Kara-Ula mountain range. The strange, spiral script told how the peaceful intentions of the ‘aliens’ had been misunderstood, and how many of them were hunted down and killed by members of the Ham tribe, who lived in the neighboring caves.
The men had huge, bulging heads and puny bodies and were so ugly and repellent that they were hunted down by local tribesmen on horseback. Strangely, the description of the ‘invaders’ tallied with the skeletons originally discovered in the caves by Professor Chi Pu Tei.
As incredible as the Chinese disk story may be, there is more! On February 26, 1967, the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner ran an article about the Dropas. Part of it follows “Riddle of Asian Stone Discs from Outer Space”
Russian archaeologists are puzzling over a remarkable collection of stone discs, thousands of years old, found in the mountains bordering China and Tibet. So hard is it to explain them in terms of earthly experience that the archaeologists do not rule out the possibility that the discs may have come from outer space. A total of 716 discs, like Stone Age gramophone records have been picked up in recent years by men exploring caves in the Bayan-Kara- Ula mountain range, reports the Soviet Union’s new English-language magazine, Sputnik.
Each disc has a central hole and irregular grooves spiraling out to the edge, but the report says (quite seriously) that the groves are not sound tracks. It is thought that they are some form of ancient writing, but scientists have so far failed to decipher them.Chinese archaeologists estimate that the discs are about 12,000 years old, but have made no headway at all in trying to explain their purpose or how they came to be in the caves.The Russians, who have examined some of the discs in a Moscow laboratory, claim to have made two important discoveries. One is that the discs contain certain traces of metal; particularly cobalt. Secondly, when placed on a special turntable they hummed in an unusual rhythm like an electrical charge was passing through them.
The Russian Zaitsev, who has spent 30 years collecting evidence that intelligent beings from outer space have had contact with the earth, believes that the discs may give substance to ancient Chinese legends of small, gaunt, yellow-faced men who came down from the clouds many centuries ago …
Drawings on the cave walls portrayed beings with round helmets, and drawings of the sun, moon and stars were shown with interconnecting rows of dots. The interconnecting dots could possibly portray the routes traveled by the ancestors of the beings in the graves or might have been drawn to show the outerspace origin of the ones who perished there in the cave. In 1968 the russian scientist W. Saitsew published a paper which raised a lot of interest in the subject of nonterrestrians visiting earth in the past. Some of the information presented in his paper were based on the work which Professor Tsum Um Nui had done in 1962.
For several years, nothing was heard of the disks. Then, in 1974, an Austrian engineer named Ernst Wegener came upon two of the disks in the Banpo Museum in Xian. The museum director could tell him nothing about the disks, which had begun to deteriorate, but she allowed him to touch one of them and to photograph them. He did so, but he had only a Polaroid camera with him. These photos are the ones that we see often reprinted today. In 1994, when Hartwig Hausdorf was in China, he asked the current director of the Banpo Museum about the disks and was told that they had disappeared.
In 1995 China released the following news report::
“In the province of Sichuan, which lies on the eastern border of the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains, 120 people of a previously ethnologically unclassified tribe have been discovered. The most important aspect of this new tribe is the size of its people: No taller than 3 ft. 10 in., the smallest adult measuring only 2 ft. 1 in! This discovery might be the first hard evidence on the existance of the Dropa/Dzopa – a people whose predecessors are said to have come from the stars.”
Today, the isolated area between Tibet and China is inhabited by two tribes of people who, in fact, call themselves the Dropa and the Han. Once enemies, these two tribes now co-exist peacefully. Anthropologists have been unable to categorize either tribe into any other known race; they are neither Chinese nor Tibetan. Both tribes are of pygmy stature, adults measuring between 3-foot-6 and 4-foot-7 with an average height of 4-foot-2, and body weights of 38 to 52 pounds.
They are yellow-skinned with thin bodies and disproportionately large heads, corresponding to the skeletal remains found in the caves in 1938. They have sparse hair on their bodies and have large eyes that are not Asian in aspect, but have pale blue irises. The Dropa people and their talking stone disks remain as mysterious today as they did in the late 1930s. Many researcher feel that the Dropa stone disks are definitive proof of an alien race that “came from the stars.”
In Ashland, Nebraska, on December 3, 1967, Herbert Schirmer, a 22 years young patrolman, was making his usual rounds. He had checked the Ashland Sales Barn, and several gas stations along Highway 6 when he noticed what he thought were red lights on top of a large truck. He had just passed through the intersection of Highways 6 and 63 at about 2:00 AM.
He drove the short distance down 63 and stopped with his headlights shining on the object. According to Schirmer, the object was definitely not a truck. The red lights that he had seen were blinking through the oval portholes of a metallic, oval-shaped object that was hovering at a height of about eight feet above the road’s surface.
The object appeared to have a polished, aluminum surface and had a sort of walk around it. It had a structure underneath, like a landing gear.
As he watched, the object rose into the air with flames coming from underneath. It passed almost directly over Schirmer’s patrol car, then quickly shot out of sight.
Schirmer returned to the police station, noting that it was now 3:00 AM., which surprised him because he felt that only ten minutes had passed. At the station, he made this entry into his logbook:
“Saw a flying saucer at the junction of highways 6 and 63. Believe it or not!”
Afterward, Schirmer developed a red welt on his neck, a headache, and he began to feel ill. Word of Schirmer’s sighting was related to the Condon Commission at the University of Colorado, which investigated UFO reports.
Schirmer was asked to come to Boulder, Colorado. At Boulder, on February 13, 1968, he was hypnotized by psychologist Dr. Leo Sprinkle of the University of Wyoming.
Under hypnosis, Schirmer recalled that, after he stopped his car near the object, the engine died and his radio went silent. A white object emerged from the craft and seemed to communicate mentally with him, preventing him from drawing his gun as he was want to do.
After the hypnotic session had ended, Schirmer was able to recall even more details about the encounter. The beings were friendly, they drew energy from electrical power lines, and they had a base on Venus.
The Condon Committee concluded that: “Evaluation of psychological assessment tests, the lack of any evidence, and interviews with the patrolman, left project staff with no confidence that the trooper’s reported UFO experience was physically real.”
Psychologist Dr. Sprinkle, however, felt that Schirmer “believed in the reality of the events he described.”
Returning to Ashland, Schirmer was appointed Ashland’s Police Chief when Chief Wlaskin resigned. However, he resigned after two months, unable to concentrate on the job due to his UFO experience.
According to Schirmer, he was ridiculed by some of the townspeople, his car was dynamited, andhis wife left him.
Further regression hypnosis sessions were conducted on June 8, 1968, by hypnotist Loring G. Williams and the results of those sessions were reported in two books: “Gods, Demons, and Space Chariots” and “Gods and Devils from Outer Space” by Eric Norman.
One odd fact that was brought out was that the aliens wore uniforms with an emblem of a winged serpent on the left breast, similar to the winged serpents that have appeared in mythology around the world. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: This is my account of what happened to me on the 13th of October 2020 at Dawlish Devon England. The weather was very bleak that day and there wasn’t many people about. I had just walked half way up the cliff when I stopped to take some photographs of the surrounding area. I then spotted something moving out of the corner of my eye so I immediately turned towards it to see what it could be, only to be shocked by what I saw. There was a translucent humanoid figure that was running towards me and I could only see the silhouette of the figure it was about 5.9 ft. tall and was of athletic build, there were no other discernible features. It was moving very fast and it seemed like the figure was trying to grab me because it had it’s arms stretched out as it was heading closer towards me. I shouted hey look… to my friends who were below me on a lower path. I then raised up my camera to take a photograph of the translucent figure which caused the figure to react and turn and run back along the path, over to an iron railing which it then climbed over and then jumped up into a tree where it just seemed to disappear.
I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed… I was really spooked by it so I went running along the path back down to my friends. I told them what had just happened and they knew that I was telling the truth so we didn’t hang around we left the area immediately. It left me wondering what would’ve happened if the figure had succeeded in grabbing me, would I have been missing and been another statistic. The next day after this occurrence I witnessed and photographed a military helicopter, that kept circling the same area where this incident had happened and I don’t think it was a coincidence.
The reason why the governments around the world are covering this up is that the ones who are snatching people are dimensional in nature and are often wrongly referred to as space aliens which they are not. please check out the attached photographs. I only wish I could of captured the translucent humanoid figure in some photographs… but it just move to fast to capture. I previously sent an email to David Paulides and all he said was neat story. This is a true and accurate account of what happened… Any idea what it could’ve been Ken? All the best John. NOTE: The top image is CGI.
While watching the Jan 19, 2017 CTV news covering President Trump prior to taking oath of office. You can clearly see a UFO is visible for 3 seconds in the newscast at 21:41 mark. I tried to report this to MUFON the next day, but had difficulty getting a copy of this video and to post. Today while browsing my laptop, I found the video I had forgot about and decided I would try to complete the report again.
KENS NOTE: Apparently MUFON feels it not worth investigating and may classify the case as ” information only”. Ignoring a possible ”smoking gun video” is a disgrace.
OCTOBER 20, 2010 …….LOVER’S POINT, MONTEREY CALIFORNIA
Time of Sighting: 5 PM PDT Description: While looking at the ocean wife saw what appeared to be a school of fish disturbing otherwise calm water. The water suddenly calmed again and beams of light/energy emerged from water at a 50 degree angle. At the top of beams, separated by a small space was a ring. Outlines were seen with bright sea foam blue color and transparent in the middle of the ring. The marine layer/fog glowed tangerine orange around ring. Simultaneously the ring shot off to the north at incredible speed and beams retracted back into water. Just before seeing this she had been in the grocery store where they experienced a power brown out. There was also a brown out at our home. TV and internet went off, but lamps and overhead light could be turned on and off, but came on very dim. this lasted about an hour. My wife came home while the brown out was still happening and was very relieved to see it happening at home also. She experienced bad headaches and nausea and some other health problems for at least a week afterward. This happened in Monterey Bay in California where there are several military and government installations such as naval post graduate school, defense language institute, Monterey Institute of International Studies and the Panetta Center( which is owned by CIA director Leon Panetta). There is also a very deep ocean canyon that comes very close in. Right off shore the ocean is up to a mile deep. The ring was the size of two football fields. NOTE: The above image is real but from another sighting in Virginia.
I was out on my back porch again, and spotted the pulsating orb in the Eastern sky. It was 10:54pm. It’s movements were similar to the other two reports I’ve filed. The light pulsate, the object on zoom is clearly spinning. It hovers, makes sharp directional changes. It disappears for seconds, then reappears, sometimes in a different position. When you stare at it the object appears to be reflecting like a prism. Not separate colored lights but glinting the rainbow of colors. The green mist, aura, or shroud is visible when you fixate on it.
My brother in law also witnessed this sighting and kept saying he saw green, in front of the craft. I am convinced I’m seeing it in my minds eye, but that is how he described it to me. We watched it for almost 45 minutes and went inside. We were cold. I looked a short time later and it was gone. It was about 1215pm when I checked to see if it was still there, and it wasn’t. Side note: in one of the pictures I believe the first one….. when you zoom in on it it appears there is a domed top that is translucent, possibly a window.
A completely baffling case involving nine witnesses took place on April 22, 1966, in Beverly, Mass. This dramatic close encounter is regarded as being among the most persuasive arguments for the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and it is almost certainly the most solidly unidentifiable report from Massachusetts in the sixties.
The events of that evening began to unfold shortly after 9:00 p.m.. Nancy Modugno, age 11, was laying in bed when she noticed a bright light blinking through her window. She looked out and saw, only forty feet away, an amazing object about the size of an automobile, brightly lit with flashing blue, green, red and white lights.
The football-shaped craft made a whizzing, ricocheting sound as it moved over the neighborhood at a very low altitude, just clearing the tops of the houses. As she watched, the thing descended and could be seen behind trees, apparently landing in a large field behind Beverly High School.
Terrified, the astonished girl ran down the stairs and tried to tell her father about what she had seen. He tried to calm her down and went about adjusting the television set, which had mysteriously just lost its picture. Nancy’s mother, Claire, was visiting two friends, Barbara Smith and Brenda Maria, in an adjoining apartment at the time. Nancy’s father ordered her back to bed, but she became hysterical and refused to leave.
At this point, Barbara and Brenda walked in to order a pizza. Seeing Nancy in a fit, the two women attempted to ease her fears and calm her down. They could see the flashing lights in the field, and told Nancy that they would walk over there to prove that it was just a plane.
Barbara and Brenda picked up Claire Modugno and walked down a hill to the field. The three women looked up and saw something they could not have anticipated. There were three objects maneuvering in the sky, halting and circling as if they were playing tag. They were oval-shaped, with bright flashing lights.
Two were distant, but one was much closer, apparently right over the school.
The women crossed the field to get a better look. They could see flashing lights on the edge of the craft changing colors from red to green and blue. Brenda waved her arms at the object and it immediately stopped circling and moved across the field towards the women. They were horrified. In her statement, Barbara said:
“It started to come towards us… I started to run. Brenda called, ‘Look up! It is directly over us!’ I looked up and saw a round object… like the bottom of a plate. It was solid, grayish white… I felt this thing was going to come down on top of me. It was like a giant mushroom.”
Out of sheer terror, Barbara and Claire turned and ran up the hill. Brenda was all alone in the field, with the thing only 20 feet above her head. She stated:
“The object appeared larger and larger as it came closer. The lights appeared to be all around and turning. The colors were very bright. When overhead, all I could see was a blurry atmosphere and brightly lit-up lights flashing slowly around… I thought it might crash on my head!”
The others called to her, then she too turned and fled. One of the witnesses was so petrified by the encounter that she literally wet her pants. While the women ran back to the apartments, the object smoothly moved over the school building. They got on the telephone to alert their neighbors to the spectacle unfolding outside. One woman was already in her yard, watching the flying saucers. And one man, upon looking outside and seeing the discs, called the police.
The police arrived to find a small crowd of people standing outside watching the closest object moving up and down above the school. Jokingly, Officers Bossie and Mahan asked the group, “Where’s the airplane?” When the witnesses pointed to the thing, then at high altitude and looking like a star, the officers laughed.
Then, suddenly, the disc turned bright red and dropped to a position directly over the school building. At this point, the officers became visibly shaken. Mahan stated, “I observed what seem to be a large plate hovering over the school.
It had three lights – red, green, and blue – but no noise… This object hovered… The lights were flashing…” Bossie said, “It hovered and then began gliding. Some of the people got on the ground and were real scared!”
They jumped back into the cruiser and drove toward the object, down into the schoolyard. They could see clearly that it was not an airplane or helicopter and that it was shaped like a half dollar, with three lights, red, green & blue, in indentations at the rear of the disc – similar to back-up lights.
Just as the policemen got out of the cruiser, the disc made a couple of passes over the school and began to move slowly away. It picked up speed and was last seen as it disappeared behind buildings. By this time, the two other UFOs had also disappeared, though nobody had seen them leave. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Date of Sighting: June 20, 1987 Time of Sighting: 12:15 PM Local Time Date Reported: April 3, 2006 Duration of Sighting: Unknown Location of Sighting: Cedar Point, Ontario, Canada (Southern Ontario) Latitude: 44.8 Degrees North Longitude: 80.18 Degrees West Number of Witnesses: One Weather: Clear Skies.
Description (In Witness’s Own Words): The sighting occurred near Cedar Point, Ontario, Canada. I was flying my Citabria airplane at 3500 ft. ASL. The dull silver saucer shaped UFO was first sited over Christian Island as I was banking my aircraft to the right on a level turn. I opened my left side window to watch as the UFO passed approximately 500 ft. underneath my plane. I then banked the plane to the left so that I would not lose sight of it. The UFO continued on a straight and level path, and although I was going 110 m.p,h. the UFO’s speed was such that there was no way I could catch up to it. If I had to approximate it’s speed, I would guess at 400-600 m.p.h. As for the size of the UFO, I can’t really say, since there was nothing that I could compare it to. If I had to guess, I would say about 30 to 50 feet in diameter. It happened so quickly, but I did get a very good look at it. There were no windows or any markings on the UFO. The color was a dull silver, almost a grey color. I usually always carry a camera in my side pouch, but this time, it was in a bag behind the rear passenger seat. If I had a passenger with me at that time, I would have been able to get a very good picture with my 35mm camera! Now when I go flying, I always make sure that I have at least two cameras with me at all times.
Addition Information About Airplane Pilot Was Flying: The aircraft was manufactured by Champion Aircraft CO. in the USA. The model is a Citabria 7ECA.
Investigator’s Notes: This is an example of a credible witness reporting an incredible sighting. The witness did not report this sighting previously because he was afraid of ridicule. He got a good look at the craft as it approached close to his aircraft. The sighting occurred near the middle of a bright sunny day. Not much more to say: Unidentified!
A report that contains some striking similarities to Mrs. Moreland’s story of more than eight years before was investigated by C. Reed Ricks, who sent NICAP the details. On the night of December 8, 1967, Marilyn Wilding, age 15, of Idaho Falls, went out on her front step to look for a friend coming by to pick her up.
It was about 7:40 p.m. The evening was dark and overcast, cold, with snow on the ground. Miss Wilding’s attention was attracted to a light source reflecting on the snow and glancing upward she saw a large light above, partially obscured by the roof of her house.
Stepping out into the yard, she saw a large, brightly lighted object hovering not far above the end of her home. It was so bright that she was unable to perceive any other color than white. The object was circular in shape, “about as big as a car.”
She told the NICAP investigator that it was close enough for some one to have thrown a rock at it and hit it. As she stood looking, the object tipped and rotated partly so that she was able to see that it had a domed top.
In the dome, which was transparent, she could make out the indistinct outlines of two figures, but she was unable to make out any details because of the glare.
She ran into her house and called for her younger sister to come and look, but the youngster was barefoot and did not come out. Miss Wilding then ran back outside in time to see the object begin to rotate, in a clockwise direction as seen from below.
It maintained its tilted attitude while rotating, and therefore gave the appearance of wobbling. With this motion, it began moving away toward the north. As it receded into the distance, the light dimmed and turned orange in color.
The UFO’s departure was observed from inside the house by Miss Wilding’s younger brothers and sister, who had been alerted by the witness. (Mr. and Mrs. Wilding were not at home at the time of the incident occurred.) In her written report, Miss Wilding also gave the names of the Schuldt family, neighbors, as witnesses.
At its closest, the object was no more than 100 yards away, and from 50 to 100 feet above the ground. The incident lasted for approximately three minutes. Besides containing a number of details similar to those described by Mrs. Moreland, Miss Wilding’s sighting may also be compared with another incident that occurred at Ririe, Idaho, a little more than a month earlier.
The six preceding occupant reports have one thing in common: the reported beings in each case were seen in or on the associated UFO. Also, five of the six reports took place during the decade of the 1950s.
This is not to say that all occupant reports during that period described beings seen in or on the object; to the contrary, there are many reports on file in which the alleged occupants were reported outside of the UFO; and in some cases, strange non-human entities have been reported when no UFO could be immediately associated with their presence.
The following cases are examples of occupant reports in which the alleged beings were seen outside of the UFOs. All of them have occurred since 1964. Several of these cases contain features that are unique and bizarre: their reported high degree of strangeness places special demands upon our credulity.
However, they cannot be eliminated out of hand simply because they do not conform to what we would prefer to expect of “spacemen” reports. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I am captain of foreign going vessels since 1970. In 1968 I was second officer on Panamax bulk carrier Swiss flag named GRICHUNA. We departed fully loaded with coal from Norfolk or Charleston, bound for Japan through Panama channel.
I was on the night watch from 0000 – 0400, and we were sailing south off the coast of Florida. The sea was calm and our speed was 15-16 knots. The weather was fine and the visibility very good.
I was on the command bridge outside on the port side and looking to the lights of Palm Beach, at a distance just abeam, and then I saw the lights under the surface some 30-40 meters away, just abeam in the depth of some 10-15 meters.
It looked like a big airplane without wings, tail with all the windows lit on it. There were some 10-15 windows, but I did not count them.
The object was moving with us but some 30 degrees crossing our course. The speed was about double of ours and it went under the bow of our ship and I could see just a gloom when it came on the other side in front of port bow. Our ship was 250 meters long and her draft was some 9 meters.
There was AB seaman with me on the bridge, but standing by on the wheel even if we were on automatic, and I did not call him outside earlier but asked him later if he could see something in the sea left of the port bow. He confirmed he see a gloom under water. Now what was it?
I excluded a submarine, as they have no windows – they would not risk to pass so close under our ship and finally some 30 knots was too great of speed for a submarine in 1968.
A sight seeing submarine has windows, but what would she be doing in plain night on open seas (10 NM off coast) and again risking collision and too big speed and even the size (about 40 meters) for her.
Is there someone who could explain this sighting? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
FEBURARY 28, 1968 …….FLIGHT NEAR JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA AREA
At 7:45 p.m., February 28, the three-man crew of an Eastern Air Lines ferry flight from St. Louis to Miami saw a string of unknown lights that caused the pilot “to take evasive action.”
Traveling at 18,000 feet, Captain Robert F. Reilman, Flight Officer A. J. Farmer and Safety Officer Rick Morrison first noticed “a red flashing light” at their altitude.
In his report to NICAP, the pilot said the light was at their 11:30 position about halfway between Jacksonville and Orlando, Florida.
“Who’s this at our 11:30 position?” Capt. Reilman asked a nearby control center.
The center replied that they had been in communication with a plane 15 miles away.
“Well, this guy isn’t 15 miles away,” the pilot replied. “He’s at 11:30, has one flashing red light and three – now four red lights strung out – one red light turned to green.”
At this point, Capt. Reilman “prepared to take evasive action.” The center radioed back that they had spotted no targets on their radar scope.
“Come on,” Reilman responded, “he’s going right by us at our 9:00 position.”
The center still replied that they had no targets and that no balloons were in the vicinity.
“I dropped the subject and proceeded to Miami,” the Captain concluded.
Pacings of ground vehicles have often badly frightened the witnesses, showing that official debunking and denials have not abated fears of UFOs. If anything, they have increased such fears, since many citizens believe the facts are kept from them. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
NOVEMBER 15, 1966 ……..POINT PLEASANT WEST VIRGINIA
The very first sighting of the Mothman was supposedly on the night of November 15, 1966, near the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Two married couples, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette were driving past a closed down World War II ammunitions plant that was commonly called the “TNT AREA” by locals.
They were only about six miles north of the city proper, in an area set aside by the city as a wildlife preserve for birds, called the McClintic Wildlife Preserve. The area had many underground tunnels and caves; an easy hiding or nesting place.
The first thing that caught their attention was the glow of two large red eyes peering through the darkness. They could soon make out the shape of a creature six to seven foot tall, with the basic shape of a human with what appeared to be wings folded around his sides and back.
The glowing red eyes were consistent with the description of another mysterious creature, oddly enough, in Flatwoods, West Virginia. The being is commonly referred to as the Flatwoods monster. The Flatwoods event occurred in September of 1952.
A bright, burning UFO that was seen crashing to the ground heralded the subsequent sighting of two large red eyes about a foot apart which glowed in the night.
The initial assumption was that an airplane had crashed… that is until the reports began to come in of sightings of the monster. Eye witness testimony still exists, part of which I will quote from here:
Topping the hill, they (several school boys and a neighbor lady) could see a “glowing, hissing” object about 10 feet in diameter, about 100 yards away.
Now completely dark, the night was shattered by two lights, about a foot apart.
One of the boys had a flashlight, and when he turned it on the two distant lights of a creature ten foot tall appeared… a bright red face, bright green clothing, a head which resembled the ace of spades, and clothing which, from the waist down, hung in great folds.”
Suddenly, the creature began to “float” toward them, sending the group running back down the hill to the May house, where they quickly called the Sheriff.
These two accounts, if put side by side will show some remarkable similarities. One could make a good case that the Mothman and the Flatwoods monster were the same species.
Both creatures had red glowing eyes. Both, allowing for some exaggeration by the youngsters, were 7 foot tall or more. The clothing, which hung in folds, could have been wings, and the “floating” could have been flying.
Monsters stories are somewhat like fish tales, and we must keep that in mind to get a reliable rendering of what the Mothman really was.
The four adults in Point Pleasant also made the statement that the eyes had a “hypnotizing” effect on them. As they stared in wonderment at the creature, it suddenly moved… then made a mad dash toward an open door in the plant.
Awe had turned into fear now, as the four sped away, racing toward Point Pleasant.
Only a few moments passed before they again saw the creature… or another like it. Standing in a field just off the lonely road, it spread open its massive wings. The witnesses said that the creature’s wings were similar to those of a bat.
The creature rose into the air, seemingly without effort, lifting its enormous body against the Earth’s gravity easily. The four sped on, but now this hideous winged fiend was following them!
The frantic four, now speeding at near 100 miles per hour, were astonished to see the creature pacing them. During this run for their lives, they could hear a sound even above the roar of the car engine. This was a sound like a “record played at high speeds.”
Obviously the high speed working of its wings accounted for the strange sound. Finally the foursome reached the town of Point Pleasant, where the creature abandoned its pursuit, opting for the loneliness of the outskirts rather than the sounds and lights of the city.
The witnesses noticed a dead dog near the city limits as they finally put distance between themselves and the monster. Later, when returning with policemen to the scene, they noticed that the body of the dog was gone.
“It was shaped like a man, but bigger. Maybe six and a half or seven feet tall. And it had big wings folded against its back, ” Roger Scarberry told reporters.
“But it was those eyes that got us. It had two big eyes like automobile reflectors,” added Linda Scarberry.
“They were hypnotic. For a minute, we could only stare at it. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.”
The frightened four never stopped their car until they reached the Mason County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Millard Halstead was the first person the four frightened witnesses saw. They immediately began to tell their unusual story.
Halstead would later state: “I’ve known these kids all their lives. They’d never been in any trouble and they were really scared that night.”
The Deputy followed the four back to the area of the initial sighting. Arriving at the spot, Halstead turned his radio on to make reports if necessary.
His radio did something very odd. It made a loud screeching sound to the point that he turned it off. He was visibly shaken. He soon left the scene and immediately returned to headquarters to report his radio problems.
The harrowing experience of the two couples was not the only unusual occurrence that night in Point Pleasant. About 10:30 P.M. contractor Newell Partridge was sitting at home in front of the television. Suddenly, the picture on the screen disappeared.
It was replaced by a “herringbone pattern” and a “loud whining noise.” He could now hear the familiar sounds of his dog Bandit howling on the porch. Bandit was a big muscular German Shephard who was always on guard, alerting Partridge of any unusual happenings around the house.
He was a country dog, and used to defending himself and his family. Partridge quickly made his way to the porch to see what his loyal Bandit was making such a fuss about. The dog was heading to the family’s barn, located about one hundred and fifty yards away.
Partridge aimed his flashlight in the direction of the barn, and was shocked to see “two circle-like eyes” glowing red through the night.
Partridge’s own words were: “I shined the [flash]light in that direction, and it picked up two red circles, or eyes, which looked like bicycle reflectors. I certainly know what animal eyes look like… these were much larger. It’s a good length of a football field to that hay barn, still those eyes showed up huge for that distance.”
Something wasn’t right, and Partridge ran inside to get his trusty gun, ready to defend himself from whatever or whoever was trespassing on his property. He spent the night with one eye open, and the gun at his side. When morning broke, he went to find Bandit, worried that he was hurt, or worse, dead.
There was no sign of Bandit, but Partridge did find a worrisome clue to his whereabouts. He found tracks in a circular pattern, telling him that Bandit had gone round and round probably barking at something in the air! Bandit was never seen again.
Could the body of the dog seen on the outskirts of town been that of Bandit? The news of this strange event quickly spread from police headquarters to the local news media.
The popularity of the Batman television series and comic books would influence a local reporter to tag the unknown creature as the “Mothman.” The Batman series had a character of that name. The legend was born.
The next morning a press conference was called by Sheriff George Johnson. At this meeting, all of the witnesses of the night before were interviewed. In this short period of time, the word had spread dramatically, reaching far beyond the state of West Virginia.
Present was journalist Mary Hyre, who covered the Point Pleasant area for the Athens, Ohio paper the “Messenger.” She would become a major player in the Mothman mystery. She would write a riveting account of the West Virginia enigma which was picked up by the Associated Press.
“Everybody in Point Pleasant knew Mary,” recalled Roy Cross, her boss in the bureau.
“She ran that town.”
Hyre died February 15, 1970. Cross was one of her pallbearers, along with several West Virginia state troopers, the Mason County sheriff, and the Messenger’s publisher.
The Pittsburgh Press, now defunct, gave the United Press International version front-page coverage on its November 16 edition with the headline: “Red-Eyed 7-Footer: ‘Bird’ Flaps Scare Into W. Va. Couples.”
In time, there would be some one hundred witnesses who claimed to have seen the Mothman. Sightings were made through the rest of the year, and even into 1967.
Many descriptions of the Mothman were made, all of them similar, yet with some differences. The minor inconsistencies could easily be accounted for due to the experience of the individual witness, or the circumstances of the event, as to lighting, weather, and the venue.
“It stood taller and broader than a man, walked in sort of a halting shuffle on humanlike legs, and emitted a squeaking sound.”
“The red, glowing eyes, set into the shoulders, seem to have been more terrifying than either the size of the creature or span of its batlike wings.”
More than one witness mentioned hearing a mechanical humming as the creature flew above them. Witnesses reported feeling an uncontrollable, indescribable terror:
“I’ve never had that feeling before. A weird kind of fear. That fear gripped you and held you.”
One of the most discussed sightings of the creature would occur on the night of November 16, 1966. A terrifying creature would be encountered again in the sparsely populated TNT area at the home of Ralph Thomas.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Wamsley were visiting the Thomas family along with Mrs. Marcella Bennett and her young daughter. As the Wamsley group was walking through the yard to their car, they seemed to accidently step on top of something either resting or asleep on the ground.
They had encountered the Mothman.
Marcella Bennett would describe the experience in this manner:
“It rose up slowly from the ground. A big, gray thing. Bigger than a man, with terrible, glowing red eyes.”
Marcella was so terrified that she dropped her infant to the ground. The creature opened its massive wings, and as it did, Wamsley quickly grabbed the baby, and ran with the rest of the witnesses into the house.
The three children of the house opened the door for the group as they too had witnessed the winged ogre. Mothman followed behind them, coming up on the porch, and even peering through the window.
All of those in the house were totally terrified. Walmsley immediately phoned the police, but before they arrived, the Mothman was gone. The witnesses in the yard were probably spared injury or death because the creature was not fully awake.
Mrs. Bennet would require medical attention. She was in a state of shock after the event.
At the TNT area outside of town, each night would bring visitors hoping to get a glimpse of the Mothman. Many brought their families along, and camped out. They brought along food, blankets, books, and cameras.
Many hoped to get that one photograph of this mysterious being. No doubt a good photograph would bring a small fortune when the media was in the Mothman frenzy. It was common place for reporters and television crews to camp out at the old TNT plant, hoping for that one big story or picture that would launch the career of an up and coming reporter, or make a legend of an established one.
Unfortunately for them, the only legend launched would be that of the Mothman.
The sightings of the Mothman seemed to wind down by the end of 1967, but the legend would go out with a bang. On November 21, police received a frantic call from Richard West of Charlestown. He had spotted a tall winged creature on the roof of his neighbors house.
He described the being as having a wing span of six to eight feet. He also detected the red glowing eyes. He claimed that the Mothman rose straight up from the roof, just “like a helicopter.” Only four days later, on the 25th, Tom Vry was driving along Route 62 in the TNT area. As he scanned the landscape, he was taken aback by the sight of a Mothman standing in a field along the road.
He described the creature as tall and gray with wings. He said the being spread its wings, and lifted straight up into the air. Then the Mothman flew above his car. Vry sped away and saw him no more.
Two days later on the 27th, Connie Carpenter was driving home from church. Near the town of Mason, she spied a grayish figure standing on the golf course. The creature saw her, and flew directly toward her car. He got close enough for her to see his face. She described it as “horrible.”
Would this be the end of the Mothman? For a time maybe, but the legend will continue. Many UFOologists write the legend off as incredible fantasy, or a hoax. However, it must be said that the reports of the Mothman should be viewed on a case by case basis, just like UFO reports.
Certainly there were some reports of the Mothman that were hoaxes, as to be expected. Hoaxes are just part of human nature. Many try to sensationalize an ongoing event for the purpose of personal notoriety or financial gain, but any clear minded investigator must not discount ALL of the reports just because SOME of them are false.
The Mothman sightings invoked as many explanations as sightings. The strange phenomena that accompanied the first reports continued to the end. Many residents of the area of Point Pleasant were victims of electrical problems and even apparitions, leading some to believe that the whole phenomena was spiritual in nature.
It should be mentioned that animal and cattle mutilation reports skyrocketed during the Mothman period, though no direct evidence connected the Mothman to the reports.
Some of the theories put forth for the devilish bird were:
He was the result of some type of demonic or cult ritual.
He was formerly a crane who was subjected to a type of genetic altering due to secret chemicals used at the old TNT plant.
He was the manifestation of a 200 year old Shawnee Indian curse put on the area of Point Pleasant.
He was a type of secret government experiment, as reports of the infamous Men in Black visiting witnesses were reported.
Those who laughed at these theories claimed that the sightings were nothing more than misinformed reports of the sandhill crane, which did have reddish patches on its head, and did get quite large.
The area also had among its native wildlife other large species of birds, such as an extremely large vulture found by some young boys in July 1967 in New Haven. Also a local farmer shot and killed an Arctic snow owl with a wingspan of five feet.
Mothman was even blamed for a natural disaster that occurred on December 15, 1967. The Silver Bridge, which crossed the Ohio River at Point Pleasant, collapsed during a heavy traffic period. Forty-six vehicles fell into the icy waters, and thirty-eight fatalities were reported.
Supposedly this marked the end of the Mothman sightings. Some have even surmised that the majority of the Mothman population lived under the bridge and were killed during the collapse. Only a couple of sightings were reported after the bridge disaster.
Everyone loves a mystery, and the Mothman is certainly one that will endure, just like other monster stories. It is human nature to perpetuate an exciting story, whether true or false.
We must not forget however that a good number of the sightings of the Mothman were made by reasonable, sane individuals who were genuinely frightened, and stood to gain nothing by reporting what they saw. There is no doubt in my mind that at least SOME of the sightings are real.
We are left with a puzzling question. Scientists will tell you that there is NO known species of animal that matches the eye witness accounts of the Mothman.
If the scientific community is correct, then every eyewitness was either lying, having a hallucination, or simply mistook a native animal or bird as a monster.
This is extremely difficult to believe. Sane, responsible people know better. Give them some credit. There is a huge difference between a crane, and a 7-8 foot tall winged creature with red eyes that flies right at you, or follows your automobile at 100 hundred miles per hour, or takes off vertically like a helicopter. There is no crane that can do these things, but the Mothman can. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is unique in Ufology for several reasons. Although there have been a number of eyewitness accounts of UFOs shooting beams either to the ground or at someone (Travis Walton) the case from Roaring River, Missouri has eyewitness testimony of personal items being destroyed by a beam or some other weapon from a UFO.
The UFO, in this case, was seen and photographed.
On November 22, 1966, the events of Roaring River, Missouri. The exact location was near Cassville. During deer season, two hunters were trying their luck. As one of the men returned to their campsite, he became alarmed when he saw smoke rising from their camp.
He immediately ran to find out what had happened. He discovered the hunters’ 12″X18′ tent and other equipment totally destroyed. The tent was still smoldering.
Also some shoes and records were still smoking. One of the aluminum poles that supported the tent was singed, but not burned. The aluminum cots inside their tent were melted.
Oddly, the hunters’ tent was set up under two trees, and being winter time, the leaves of the tree were dried; the leaves showed no damage at all, indicating that the destructive force was a narrow beam.
About 15 feet away was a dead tree with the top still burning. The witness then heard a low humming sound, and looking for the source, he saw an unusual object rising from the valley just beyond the burning tree. He was able to photograph the object only a few seconds after it left the ground, and managed a second photo a few seconds later. The entire sighting was no more than 20 seconds.
The humming sound coming from the UFO intensified as it picked up speed. His last look at the object put it about 40 degrees above the horizon.
It was gaining speed as it left. The UFO was of an aluminum color, reflecting the sunlight. Also, the witness saw what to him appeared to be a band around the the center of the object.
The UFO flew effortlessly as it moved into the skies. The witness walked the distance from his location to the area of the object, measuring approximately 300 feet. The object’s diameter was estimated at 25 feet, being about 8 feet thick.
The hunter had used a 620 format Argoflex camera with a coated varex 75mm, f/4.5 lens, shutter speed at 1/90 seconds, f/8 depth of field if focused at infinity was 41 feet to infinity. The two photographs were in the center of the roll with other camping exposures at beginning and end of roll.
There can be little doubt that the damage at the campsite was done by the UFO photographed by the hunter.
An important UFO close encounter of the second kind comes to us from Canada. This amazing account details the experiences of Stephen Michalak of Winnipeg. Michalak earned his living as a mechanic, but was an amateur geologist, and while enjoying a few days off, he decided to do some prospecting. He tried his luck in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.
This area was by no means new to Michalak.
He had spent considerable time in the vicinity of the lake there.
Michalak had followed reports of quartz veins being found in the area around Falcon lake. There were also reports of silver being found, and Michalak was on the trail of the valuable metal on May 19, 1967. He had traveled by bus from his home town of Winnipeg to a motel on the Trans-Canada Highway the night before.
Stephen rose early that morning, heading into the vast beauty of the wilderness. Only a couple of hours had transpired before he found a quartz vein by a small brook. After breaking for a quiet lunch, he resumed his work. At about 12:15 P.M. his attention was drawn away from his labors by the sound of geese passing overhead.
Looking up to see them fly over, he was shocked to see two red, glowing, elongated objects descending from the skies. As they came ever closer, their shape was defined more as disc-shaped. As he stood mesmerized by the sight, one of the craft abruptly stopped and hovered in midair.
The other continued its downward flight until it landed on a big, smooth rock only about 150 feet from him. The hovering craft began to move away, and as it went, it changed colors from red to orange, and finally gray.
It disappeared into the clouds above him. The landed craft also began to change its color in the same pattern. Finally, the gray turned into what appeared to be “hot stainless steel,” with a golden glow.
Michalak had been wearing his protective welding glasses earlier, and now they protected his eyes from the brilliant purple lights shining through openings in the front of the craft. He could now smell something..like sulfur, and hear a type of hissing sound. Curiosity overcame him.
He knew he was looking at something he thought he would never see, a craft from another world.
The only emotion more powerful than his curiosity was the gripping fear that held him in his tracks. He did have the presence of mind to sketch the object, never moving a step.
After approximately 30 minutes, he was frightened to see a door open from the side of the object. He could now see inside the craft! The interior was brilliantly lighted.
Pulling all the courage together that he possessed, he moved ever closer to the other worldly craft.
As he reached a point about 60 feet from the mysterious flying machine, he could hear two voices conversing above other sounds coming from inside the object.
Being a multi-linguist, he tried several languages to communicate with whoever… or whatever was inside. All of his efforts failed to draw a response from inside.
Undaunted, he moved even closer. He reached the door, and stuck his head inside. He saw a large panel of different colored lights, and other light beams crossing in different directions.
Michalak would later describe the flashing lights as resembling lights on a computer.
He saw no one in the craft, and decided not to push his luck any farther. He moved back away from the door. Suddenly, three panels moved together, hiding the door. His attention was now on the exterior of the craft.
He later described the surface as “highly polished colored glass with no breaks or seams in its surface.”
He reached out his hand to touch the polished surface, and his glove was melted. Suddenly the object suddenly moved, and as it did, a vented opening was exposed, like a type of exhaust port. He estimated it’s size as about nine inches high by six inches wide.
Heat was vented through the opening, setting Michalak’s shirt and undershirt on fire. He was now in great pain. He quickly tore off his top garments, and turned to see the craft ascending back into the skies. He felt a rush of air as it made it’s departure. He could still smell the craft after it had disappeared.
Knowing that he needed medical attention, he quickly tried to mark the spot. Using rocks, pine cones, loose dirt, anything he could find, he made a landmark. A severe headache now was complicated by a sick stomach.
He broke into a cold sweat, and vomited.
On his way back to his motel, he had to stop several times to ease his stomach pain.
After being refused help from a passing police officer, he finally reached his motel. It was now 4:00 P.M. He entered the coffee shop, and asked someone to recommend a doctor.
The nearest doctor was in Kenora, 45 miles east of Falcon Lake. Because of the distance, he decided to return home instead of making the trip to Kenora.
The next bus would not arrive for about four hours, so he rested in his room, and phoned his wife.
He told her only that he was in an accident, but was OK. He instructed her to have their son meet him at the bus terminal in Winnipeg. He arrived there at 10:45 P.M. His son took him to the Misericordia Hospital immediately.
He was treated for his headache, nausea, and the grid-like burns on his chest. Theorists came out of the woodwork suggesting that his burns were from a barbecue pit, or some other common object.
Stephen Michalak made not a cent from his story. He paid all of his own medical expenses, including a trip to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for additional treatment.
To defray these costs, he wrote a privately funded booklet on his experience, but it lost money.
Ultimately, Michalak was seen by more than a dozen doctors in the United States and Canada.
The site of the experience was investigated by the RCMP, RCAF, other government officials and civilian groups. America’s Condon Committee also joined the investigation.
Nothing conclusive was every offered to debunk the fantastic account of Stephen Michalak. His story is unique in many ways, and is accepted as genuine by many UFO groups and investigators. NOTE: The top image is CGI.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO event occurred on January 8, 1981 and was observed by a single witness. Due to the French privacy laws, the case was originally published with the witness name replaced with the pseudonym Renato Collini; however the witness name is by now well known to the UFO community as Renato Nicolai.
The account provided by the witness to the police authorities is as follows:
I have lived in Trans-en-Province at my current address for nearly 14 years. My wife and I live alone. She is the cleaning lady at the social security office in Draguignan. I have not worked since November 1979. I was previously an employee of the SCNI company.
This firm went out of business and I was laid off. I recieve a disability pension because I suffered from a heart problem since 1973.
Yesterday, January 8. 1981, I was busy around the house as I am practically every day. I was behind the house, which is built over a restanque (raised level). I was building a concrete shelter for a water pump. Behind my house on the same level is an expanse of flat ground.
It is reached through a path along the base of the house.
It was about 5 PM. The weather was turning colder. My attention was attracted by a slight noise, a sort of faint whistling. I turned around and saw a device in the air at the height of a big pine tree at the edge of the property.
This device, which was not spinning, was coming lower toward the ground. I was only hearing a slight whistling sound. I was not seeing any flames, either below or around this device.
While it was continuing to come down, I went closer by walking towards the stone cabin above my house. When I placed myself against the wall of the cabin, I could see very well over the roof, since this cabin too is built over a raised level. I was on the higher level, about 1.2 m from the roof.
From that position, I clearly saw the device resting on the ground. Right away it lifted off, still emitting a slight whistling sound. Reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed toward the forest of Trans, that is, towards the northeast.
When the device lifted off, I saw four openings below, through which neither flame nor smoke were escaping. The device kicked off a little dust when it left the ground.
At that instant, I was about 30 m away from the landing site. Later I went to the spot and I noticed a circle about 2 m in in diameter. At certain places along the circumference of the circle were traces like abrasions…
The device had the shape of two saucers, one inverted on top of the other. It must have measured about 1.5 m in height. It was the color of lead. This device had a ridge all the way around its circumference. Under the machine I saw two kinds of pieces as it was lifting off. They could be reactors or feet.
There were also two other circles which looked like trapdoors. The two reactors, or feet, extended about 20 cm below the body of the machine.
I have not felt any disturbance of the sense of vision or hearing.
Parts of the account obtained by a civilian investigator are also relevant:
There [the witness] discovers a sort of ovoid vehicle, with the general shape of two half spheres of unequal volume, clearly separated by a flat ledge, extending at least 15 cm and forming a ring around the metallic mass which has a… height of between 2 and 2.5 m/…
The machine lifts off, making a slight amount of dust and with a soft whistling. Then it seems to tilt, exposing its underside, and it takes off at lightning speed, passing exactly between the two tall trees, at the exact spot from which it had seemed to fall.
The witness has noted that the landing trajectory is not identical to the takeoff trajectory.
GEPAN (a department of the French Space Agency responsible for the investigation of UFO reports) also reconstructed the trajectory and duration.
Trajectory The witness states he began to perceive the phenomenon in the sky above the trees at the back end of the large platform, more precisely between the two tall conifers that tower above the wood.
Mr. Nicolai states that the motion was fast and continuous, without sudden changes in speed, and that there was no stop until the time when contact was established with the ground… The departure path is described by the witness as similar to the path of arrival…
Sound … He compares it to a wind blowing fairly strongly. He does not say whether or not the sound stopped during the landing. The shock at the impact point was recalled like that of a stone falling to the ground…
The Takeoff Phase… the object was resting on the ground for several seconds before it suddenly rose vertically over several meters, tilted… continued to rise in this position and disappeared in the sky.
Note that this object is engaging in the behavior I have termed “drop-in”, where the object arrives on a steep trajectory and departs on a steep trajectory, with only a short period in the landing or near landing location.
Detailed Sequence Of Events
Of importance to determining the point or range of events in the sequence which might correspond to the creation of the trace, is a detailed and measured sequence of events, which, based on the reference, seems to be as follows:
Elapsed Time Event Comments
0-3 secs Witness first sees the object which appears to be above two tall conifers approx 35 m from the impact point. Distance estimate is based on map and statement that the cabin is 35 m away from impact point; comparison of that distance on the map with the distance to the tree suggests an additional 35 m to the tree.
3 secs Object strikes the ground with a sound like a stone falling. The motion from the trees to the impact point is fast and continuous. Assuming the distance from the impact point to be 35m for the top of the tree, and assuming the altitude to be above the tree (stated to be “dozens of meters high”,); because of the error in translation, resolved to 10 m, we take 10 m as the altitude of the object; the distance traversed between first sight and impact is therefore 14 m.
The following assume a constant deceleration:
The deceleration based on a 3 second time to cross this distance is -0.32G from a speed of 34 kph.
According to Velasco, an upper limit to the weight based on the ground trace is 700 kg. To accomplish the noted deceleration at that weight would require a thrust of 7,171 kg.
4-25 secs Object is on the ground and the witness is continuing to move to a new location. Assuming 8 secs to walk 10m (a reasonably brisk walk), walking 30 m takes 24 secs, of which it is assumed 1-2 secs are used while object is descending, since the report refers to “while it was continuing to come down, I went closer by walking”.
25-28 secs Witness observes the object on the ground. According to the statement: “several seconds”; also, “From that position I clearly saw the device resting on the ground.”
28-35 secs Object lifts from the ground, tilts, and departs. Altitude appears to be that of the tops of the trees, here estimated to be 10 m (“it lifted off… reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed”).
It took from 1-3 secs to accomplish this.
The following assume a constant acceleration / deceleration:
If it took 3 sec, then it accelerated at approximately 0.45 G for 1.5 sec to 5 m and then decelerated at -0.45G to 10 m; the thrust required in the acceleration phase is 10,204 kg assuming a 700 kg weight.
If it took 1 sec, it accelerated at approximately 4G for 0.5 sec to 5 m and then decelerated at -4G for 0.5 sec to 10 m; the thrust required in the acceleration phase is 91,840 kg, assuming a 700 kg weight.
The GEPAN account differs somewhat, claiming “it rose vertically over several meters, tilted above the platform, continued to rise in this position and disappeared in the sky.” Hopefully “several” is 10 or so.
Description Of The Trace
The trace was found by the witness immediately after the departure of the object. The trace was circular, 2.4 m in diameter, and had the form of a ring, 0.2 m in width (it is claimed that there is a “crown” to the trace which is only 0.1 m in width,).
Note that the witness reported the object surrounded by a shelf approximately 0.15 m in width.
Photographs show the trace as lighter in color than the surrounding dirt. Vegetation remains (leaves and sticks) from the edges of the path where the object landed are seen to cross the trace (as of the next day). There does not appear to be any preferential orientation for this material, nor does it appear affected by pressure or heating. In combination, this indicates the possibility that either a) the force which produced the trace had no outward and no inward components, or b) the material was swept back over the trace either at or after the object departure.
Note that the witness mentioned the object’s departure as having raised some dust.
The soil of the trace is lighter than neighboring soil, appears to be slightly raised or crusty, and bears radial striations. These striations are not perfectly radial, but are slightly curved in a clockwise direction, and are slightly irregular.
The trace ring shows these formations most prominently on the directly east and west sides of the ring. The north side of the trace shows a slightly lower degree of the same effect.
The width of the ring as photographed and diagrammed shows no notable deviation, nor does the circularity of the ring show any notable deviation.
Hypothesis Concerning The Time When The Trace Was Formed
The following hypotheses are possible with regard to when the trace was formed:
The trace was formed at the time the object decelerated. The trace was formed when the object impacted the ground. The trace was formed when the object was resting on the ground. The trace was formed when the object rose from the ground. The trace was formed when the object hovered before accelerating away. For the purpose of these hypothesis it is presumed that the trace is a side effect of a force exerted by the object.
There are discriminators which can help select the most likely of the hypotheses:
Geometric discriminators relate to expectations of the geometry of the trace based on the dynamic behavior of the object.
Energetic discriminators relate to whether a given hypothesis can, from the present or required kinetic energy, generate the temperature change expected based on the trace analysis.
The trace is circular, in the form of a ring. No notable deviation from circularity appears to be present. No other traces are visible.
Most prominent trace effects are E, W, and slightly less to the N on the ring.
The trace shows the effects of heating to below 600 degrees C. This heating was thought to be due to friction or impact,.
The trace is a ring either 0.2 or 0.1 m in width. The outer diameter is 2.4 m. If the inner diameter is 2.2 m, the area of the ring is 41.4 sq m. If the inner diameter is 2.3 m, the area of the ring is 21.15 sq m.
The trace shows effects to a depth of 1 cm in the thickest area of the trace.
The volume of the trace is thus 0.04 cu m.
The object mass is 700 kg. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m / sec / sec, and the speed after falling 10 m is 14 m / sec or 50 kph. The kinetic energy of the 700 kg mass at the end of that fall is 6.86 x 10^11 ergs (6.86 x 10^6 joules).
The object engaged in forward motion during descent. It was first observed 35 m from the impact point. The forward speed is 34 kph, assuming a constant deceleration over 3 secs to a speed of 0. The forward kinetic energy is thus, at first appearance, 3.07 x 10^11 ergs (3.07 x 10^6 joules).
The total energy of the object (kinetic and potential) at its first appearance, is 9.93 x 10^11 ergs (9.93 x 10^6 joules).
This is, in essence, the energy budget of the object, which it is assumed must be dissipated prior to or at the time of intersection with the ground.
A force was emitted as a cylinder with a wall 0.1-0.2 m thick and that cylinder extended perpendicular from the rim of the object, and this force was the means by which the trace was formed.
This is supported by the correspondence between the width of the rim and the width of the circle. The material of the object has a specific heat similar to magnesium (1.01 / g – degree C or 1001 / kg – degree C) The ground has a specific heat 1/5 that of water (838 joules / kg – degree C).
1. The trace was formed at the time the object decelerated This is not supported, since
Forward motion would smear the trace away from circularity, which is not observed.
Forward motion with the force cylinder pointed toward the trace would cause the force cylinder to have an oval intersection with the ground, which would approach circularity as the object approached the trace site. This is not observed.
There is no preferential effect on any part of the trace which is along the line of travel (WNW). Preferential effects do not show a correlation with the line of travel.
2. The trace was formed when the object impacted the ground This is not supported, since:
If the object retained any forward motion, the objections raised to the previous hypothesis still hold.
If the object had dissipated all forward motion, the only remaining motion would be downward. If all of the vertical potential energy, now kinetic, were dissipated into the trace, a temperature increase of only 1.36 degrees C would be the result. This is insufficient to cause the observed effect. Addition of the forward motion only increases the temperature by 0.61 degrees C.
The imprint of an impact would show an the “feet” rather than the shape of the rim, unless the feet were not extended until departure. If the feet were not present, the imprint would take the form of the bottom of the object. In either case, the expected imprint is not observed.
3. The trace was formed when the object was resting on the ground This is not supported, since:
The imprint of the object resting on the ground would show an imprint of the feet rather than the shape of the rim, unless the feet were not extended until departure. The expected imprint is not observed.
A weight of 700 kg undergoing gravitational acceleration cannot produce the levels of heat observed.
4. The trace was formed when the object rose from the ground. This is supported by the shape of the trace, which indicates that the force was applied in a nearly circular pattern; if released from the rim of the object, which is suggested by the dimensions of the trace, there are no apparent variations in geometry which might be attributed to wobble or to a sweep of the force cylinder to one side or the other.
There are several possibilities as to how the trace might have been formed at this time:
The full force of the thrust was expressed as pressure on the ground within the area of the ring. If this is the only contributor to trace formation, this pressure must be sufficient to heat the ground to some affective temperature below 600 degrees C.
The thrust was expressed in the kinetic energy of particles which dissipated their energy as heat upon impact with the ground. These particles might be molecular, atomic or subatomic (i.e. electrons, protons, etc.)
Electromagnetic radiation was dissipated as heat within the area of the trace. This radiation might be a side effect of the thrust.
Subhypothesis 1 is not supported, since the maximum suggested thrust (91,840 kg in the 0.5 sec to 5 m scenario) creates a pressure of only 2 atm, or 23,000 kg / sq m. This is not sufficient to produce the indicated heating.
Assuming the kinetic energy of the particles of subhypothesis 2 to be the same as the kinetic energy of the object at the end of the acceleration phase, the highest degree of heating produced would be near 3 degrees C. Thus, subhypothesis 2 is not supported.
Insufficient information is available to assess subhypothesis 3. Since we do not know much about the spectrum of possible radiation, it is difficult to make any estimates as to how much energy might be needed to created the observed heating.
All of these hypotheses and figures should be examined, keeping in mind that the weight estimate is based on the weight effects on the trace, and if the weight of the object did not cause the trace, the trace forces may simply reflect the weight of the object combined with the force of the thrust.
Under these circumstances, thrust, energy and weight estimates used above would be much less meaningful, except insofar as they provide upper limits to the actual values.
5. The trace was formed when the object hovered before accelerating away Given that the thrusts and energies of hypothesis 4 (except for subhypothesis 3) are insufficient to produce the trace, the forces in a hover at a higher altitude would also be insufficient.
Further evidence that this is the case comes from a geometric analysis, which shows that the subsequent tilt of the object would have produced an elongation of the trace, or a variety of parabolic or hyperbolic secondary traces, none of which were observed.
Geometric evidence indicates that the trace was not formed on approach, impact or during the tilt to final departure phase.
Kinetic energy to heat conversion evidence indicates that the trace was not formed on impact or by the object resting on the ground, or by the thrust of the object on departure expressed either as pressure or as the kinetic energy of particles ejected from the rim of the object.
These findings support the idea that the Trans-en-Provence trace represents an unconventional event.
These findings also place certain limiting conditions on the forces used by the Trans-en-Provence object. For instance, it seems that the object did not generate trace-producing force on the ground during the approach phase, despite the need to dissipate apparently considerable kinetic energy in the downward and forward direction.
Furthermore, it apparently did not generate trace-producing force on the ground during the tilt to depart phase. In both of these phases, the altitude appears to have been approximately 10 m.
This indicates an extremely localized force. A similarly sized helicopter, for instance, hovering at 10 m would create a large disturbance on the ground due to the downward flow of air from the rotors.
Suggestions For Future Trace Investigations
Weight measurements are critical. Even an upper or lower bound weight can be helpful in dynamic simulations. But no information about the weight of the object can be inferred without measurements of the resistance of the soil to penetration.
Depth of the trace or pressure resistance of the trace is meaningless without control measurements outside and at some distance from the trace.
Dimensional measurements need to be precise. The area around a trace must be checked for subsidiary traces. These geometric characteristics need to be able to be checked for the slightest irregularity or deformation.
If possible, core samples should be obtained across the trace and in control areas outside the trace.
Sample depths of up to 1 foot are preferred. These allow analysts to infer more about the nature of the cause of the trace, and also preserve information which can otherwise quickly decay.
If evidence of heating can be found, it can assist in dynamic modeling.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO observation lasted under a minute. However, in that minute, information was gained by an alert witness and extracted by focused and experienced investigators which allow an analyst to form and validate hypotheses about the nature of the object.
The Trans-en-Provence UFO was able to dissipate considerable kinetic energy without affecting the ground beneath it. This may have resulted in the observed “whistling” sound, which indicates a motion of air away from the object.
The object was then able to create close to 600 degrees C of ground heating on departure, despite the apparent insufficiency of mere thrust pressure to produce those temperatures. It then departed after tilting, and did not produce any further effects on the environment at that time.
Many previous observations have indicated that the UFO rim is a source of energetic phenomena. The Trans-en-Provence case continues to support that pattern. NOTE: The above mage is CGI.
Early on the morning of July 30, 1968, a couple (names on file at NICAP) finished working on their new house in the Robert’s Hill district of Claremont, New Hampshire and were preparing to retire.
Some lights in the field back of the house, apparently about 200 feet away, attracted their attention and they went to the window to see what was going on.
To their astonishment, they saw a dome-shaped object hovering about 10 feet off the ground. The underside of the object was illuminated, and the light covered an area about 20 feet in diameter on the ground.
Since they were in a fairly isolated area with no telephone (they had just moved into the house), the couple became frightened. They could hear a buzzing sound, like a transformer, coming from the object. The time was about 2:30 a.m.
Mr. and Mrs. John Meloney of the New Hampshire NICAP Subcommittee investigated the report in close cooperation with the Claremont police. In their interview with the couple, they learned that the UFO had remained over the field until about 4:30 a.m.
Then the humming became very loud, the light grew to high intensity and the UFO moved away at a low angle upward to the west and disappeared.
In the garage, the family dog whined loudly as the UFO departed.
Two separate groups of witnesses have been located by the Subcommittee. The reports seem to indicate beyond a reasonable doubt that something unexplained was in the area. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
We were traveling south on mission road going toward home (Green valley) from Tucson. On the road below us was Bomber factory, Hughes aircraft factory and Tucson airport as well as Davis Montham air Base. The mountain, called A mountain was to the west of us. I saw several —3—bright lights to my right. They were over a small ridge of A mountain. and flew around it. They seemed to be banking to the west. My husband went just past the mountain the orbs reappeared. They seemed to be in a line in front of our vision west and aprox 20 degrees degree above the horizon. They did not flash only glowed and hovered there. Two young people pulled off behind us. The young man kept yelling “tell me you see that, tell me you see that’ and called his grandfather who lives on reservation land to go outside and look up. The girl stayed in the car. She was terrified and just wanted to leave. A very large object appeared from the south west that while opening up, looked very much like a air hanger in the sky. There were a series of lights that appeared to be hanging from a roof of some kind and your could see metal gurters. The lights hovering went into the structure one at a time and the “bay doors” closed. There was NO SOUND. Suddenly two jets came from the SE and flew directly over head. They went round the mountain and back heading back the way they came. They must have passed within a quarter mile of the dark object in the sky and never saw it. As soon as the jets left so did the object. It went south west. We followed it down Mission until we hit Duvaull mine road and returned home. Once that object left we heard crickets and cows and a dog barking again. But not while it was there. We said little to each other on the way home. I will admit it, I was shaken and excited at the same time. It was spooky. NOYE: The above image is CGI.
On July 8, the pilot and passengers of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk were approached by a UFO over Warren, Ohio about 10:20 p.m.
Two brothers, Richard and Ken Montgomery, with Elizabeth Soverns and Rosalind Rians as passengers, were flying at about 4,000 feet over Warren; Richard Montgomery was at the controls.
“I noticed an object coming toward us from the direction of Youngstown to the southeast,” he related. “I swung over… to get a closer look when the object headed directly toward our airplane.
It stopped and hung motionless in the air… momentarily, and as our aircraft came closer, it moved swiftly upward and came back at us from another angle.”
Montgomery said the UFO appeared metallic and had a light beaming from its underside. He estimated it was from six to ten feet in diameter and from 16 to 20 feet tall.
The pilot maneuvered the plane several times, but the object kept following at a distance of from 150 to 200 yards. Then the UFO “suddenly sped in an easterly direction at amazing speed and was quickly out of sight.”
During this encounter, control tower operators at Youngstown Municipal Airport received calls from area residents concerning “a dogfight between two aircraft in the skies over Warren.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
7th August 1968-Only seven years after the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, the New England states would again host an alien abduction. Buff Ledge Camp in Vermont would be the site of a visitation by four UFOs which would appear, make revolutionary aerial maneuvers, and alter the lives of at least two young people.
Buff Ledge was a girls camp located north of Burlington on Lake Champlain. During their tenure as summer camp employees, Michael Lapp, a sixteen year old maintenance man, and 19 year old water ski instructor Janet Cornell were relaxing at a boat dock on a slack day.
On this particular August afternoon, the swim team had a made a trip to Burlington to compete in a meet, and the camp was virtually deserted. Late in the afternoon, the two friends were enjoying the view of the sun setting over the water, when a bright light appeared in the darkening sky.
At first, Michael thought they were being treated to a beautiful, close up view of the planet Venus. All of a sudden, the glowing light began to move downward, and ever closer to Michael and Janet. The object, at first a round glow, now began to flatten out as it came even closer.
Michael shouted, “Wow! Venus is falling.”
As the two steadfastly watched the light, three smaller lights seemed to drop from the larger one, which quickly moved up and disappeared from sight. The three smaller objects began to move over the lake.
They were obviously under intelligent control. The objects put on a show for Michael and Janet, doing zigzag maneuvers, loops, and then descended like falling leaves. The three objects now moved even closer to the two baffled teenagers. After forming a triangle, two of the objects pulled back. Michael would later recall a sound “like a thousand tuning forks” when the two left the third craft alone.
The one remaining UFO passed over Michael and Janet, then shot upward and momentarily disappeared. It very soon reappeared, tilted to one side, and dropped into the lake. A couple of minutes seemed to pass before the object reemerged from the water, and began gliding straight toward them!
The object was now close enough to see a transparent dome occupied by two childlike creatures. Michael would describe the beings as having elongated necks, big heads, and no hair.
Their eyes were also large, and extended around the side of their heads. Michael began to sense a kind of mental communication with the two beings. Watching them intently, Michael slapped his knee, and to his surprise, one of the occupants mimicked his movement.
The craft now moved directly overhead, and shot a beam at Michael and Janet. Grabbing Janet’s shoulder, Michael pulled both of them on their backs on the dock. Suddenly, Michael was overcome with the fear of being kidnapped.
He remembers screaming, “We don’t want to go!” The light from the beam was so bright that Michael recalls being able to see the bones in his hand, like an X-ray. The two teenagers both later related that the beam had a “liquid” feeling to it, and gave them the sense of free floating.
Their next conscious thoughts would be that of staring at the object again from the dock. The sky was now totally black, and Michael wondered how long he had been in this one spot. Looking at Janet, he could see that she was in a trancelike state; drowsy and disoriented.
They now heard the welcome sounds of the swim team returning from their meet in Burlington. The UFO now moved upward into the black sky, flashed its light beam repeatedly, and then vanished from sight.
Strangely, Michael and Janet did not discuss what had happened to them, not now, and not for the next couple of weeks, when camp season ended. Maybe the strange things they had seen over the lake this evening were just optical illusions. Maybe they weren’t.
After their summer camp jobs were over, Michael and Janet went their separate ways. During the next five years, Michael rarely thought about that night. But in time, he began to have disturbing dreams…dreams about being kidnapped; abducted…against his will. The dreams would come… like they did… then the dreams would vanish…like they did.
It would be ten years after his harrowing experience that Michael made a decision to contact the Center for UFO Studies, and search for answers. Investigator Walter Webb was assigned to the case, and after hearing Michael’s story, suggested regressive hypnosis to help rid him of his emotional strife and the frightening dreams.
During Michael’s hypnosis, he vividly recalled his experiences on that night in August 1968. He remembered how the beam of light lifted him into the crafts interior; how he entered a bigger craft, and how he saw Janet lying on a table being examined.
The small beings shined a light into her eyes, scraped her skin, and took fluids from her body. “The aliens all looked alike, Michael recalled, and had those large eyes, a mouth without lips, no ears, and two small openings for a nose.”
Michael also described the beings as having three pointed, web-like digits for fingers, and their bodies felt “damp and clammy.” The aliens related to Michael that their mission was to “make life like ours… other places.”
Janet also underwent the regression, and her descriptions only went to verify Michael’s. She recalled feeling “cold” on the examining table, with something “pulling her hair and pinching her neck.” The abduction of Michael Lapp and Janet Cornell certainly falls within the general pattern of abductions reported by many others.
To confirm the facts of their fantastic story, Webb located several other members of the camp who had witnessed the strange lights over Lake Champlain the very night of the abduction! Two other employees reported a similar experience which had occurred earlier that same summer, when they observed unidentified flying objects hovering over the lake for about twenty minutes.
Although Michael and Janet’s experience was not reported for ten years after the fact, it is still a well documented case of alien abduction. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

11-2-89 …………… ARKHANGELSK RUSSIA
Stopped at night on the side of the road, two Russian truck drivers were astounded by the sight of a spaceship before them and amazed when one of the drivers was welcomed aboard.
On the night of 2nd November, 1989 the air temperature dropped very suddenly to below freezing.
Two professional Russian truck drivers, Oleg Kirzhakov and his companion Nikolai Baranchikov were driving their truck from near the area of Arkhangelsk to Moscow.
They were hurrying home to finish all the formalities related to their business trip before the holidays.
In the vicinity of Emtza railway station, the road was blocked by heaps of sand and gravel.
The road in front of them was under repair and Oleg had to turn onto a dirt road to detour. On one bend in the road, the truck’s headlights fell upon a huge structure, which was standing off to the right of the road.
“I thought it was some kind of construction equipment,” said Oleg. “There were many machines there because the road was under construction.
However, when I drove closer, I saw a big object, that in the headlights had a metallic sheen to it. When we got to within 80–90 feet of the object, our motor stalled, and our truck coasted several feet further and stopped.
The headlights that were connected to the back-up power source were still on. My partner and I couldn’t understand what had happened.
The road at this point had a bend in it and trees on the right side of the road blocked our view of the object.
We understood that we were seeing something very unusual in front of us, and were afraid that something unavoidable would happen.
Hence, I asked Nikolai to remain in the truck and observe events while I approached the object.
I left the cab and decided to approach the object to examine it more closely.
After I had passed the hood of the truck, I began to feel, with each step I took, an increased resistance from the air.
My body seemed to melt—it became difficult to move, and I knew that if I got any closer to the object, I would not be able to move at all.”
Oleg turned back toward the truck and tried to approach the object from another direction. He moved carefully, stopping after each step.
He felt the same, constantly-increasing resistance from the air.
He succeeded in coming to within about 30–36 feet of the object. He stopped on the shoulder of the road and began to examine it very carefully. Very quickly, he came to the conclusion that this object was not of Earthly origin.
Truly, it was something very unusual. In front of Oleg, there stood a huge disc-shaped object, approximately 120–140 feet in diameter, with a dome-shaped top, on which no other structures were visible.
Along the perimeter of the disc, there were some dark holes evident, which Oleg at first thought were portholes. Extending from the lower part of the object, there were two structures visible, which seemed to support the ship.
The far edge of the disc was slightly elevated, and was resting on some birch trees, two of which were broken.
The object looked dark and uninhabited and there were no traces visible of windows, doors or hatches.
A fiery request
Why is this object here, in the middle of the forest, at night? What is its purpose? Maybe something has gone wrong and it needs assistance?
All these questions flooded Oleg’s mind and at that very moment, in front of him, at a distance of an outstretched hand, right in the air, appeared a glimmering red, dotted line.
This line formed a transparent, square-shaped screen, 150 mm x 150 mm in size, with rounded corners.
Several words, written in red letters, appeared on the screen. Oleg did not remember the exact phrase, but the essence of the phrase was a request for “burning fire”.
Oleg continued, “I realized that the screen was illuminated on the body of the object. I mechanically turned to look back at Nikolai, who was still sitting in the cab of the truck. Once again, I observed the screen, but this time it appeared to be in front of the truck.
I attempted to look from one side to the other, but no matter where I turned my eyes, the screen remained in front of them. The distance to the screen remained constant and I reached out my hand to try to touch it.
My friend, Nikolai, who was watching these antics from the cab of the truck, later asked me why I moved my hands.
The screen remained in front of me for the duration of the contact.
However, the inscriptions which appeared on the screen remained only as long as was necessary for me to understand each one and only then was the last inscription replaced by a new one.”
Only after Oleg understood what was being demanded of him, he carefully backed away from the object, constantly looking back toward the truck, and still sensing the same resistance.
He returned to the truck and tried to open the right door of the cab, in order to obtain some kitchen matches.
Despite the combined efforts of both men, they were not able to open the door for a considerable length of time.
Suddenly, the door was able to be opened quite easily. Oleg removed the box of matches from the truck’s cabin, together with a bottle of laboratory alcohol, which was used as an anti-freeze in the braking system.
Again asking Nikolai not to leave the truck, Oleg returned to the same place on the shoulder of the road where he had stood before.
However, this time he was able to move easily and he experienced none of the resistance he had encountered previously. He gathered some dry leaves into a pile, poured on some alcohol and ignited them.
Upon lifting his head, he observed that a passage appeared on the surface of the object, which extended into the interior, forming a corridor. At the distant end of this corridor, he could see a glimmering, bluish light.
“At first, I had the impression that a shadow was moving inside the corridor, but then I realized that something was moving in the corridor toward the opening.
When I finally realized what was occurring, I began stepping backward and fell into the ditch along the side of the road. I jumped back onto my feet and continued to observe what was happening.
Something approached the opening and I saw that it was a dark “mass,” which reminded me of a bag or sack.
As the “mass” moved, it swayed and bent from side to side, and its periphery was vague in appearance. At this moment, a shaft extended from the object, bent and descended to the surface of the ground.
The “mass” slid down the shaft, and while increasing in size, approached the fire of burning leaves. I was paralyzed by fear!
The “mass” stood by the fire for a moment and then began to return to the object, taking with it the box of matches. Returning along the same path, the “mass” disappeared in the corridor, together with the box of matches!
Only then did I finally succeed in extracting myself from the ditch. I returned to the road and glanced back at my truck again. The truck’s headlights blinded me, but I nevertheless could see the frightened face of Nikolai, which was pressed forward tightly against the windshield.”
An invitation to enter
For a long time, Oleg remained standing on the road, and was unable to recover his senses.
Realizing that he was witnessing an event that he might never again experience, he decided to wait and observe what would happen next.
He had a sudden wish to observe the ship more closely and immediately an invitation to enter the ship appeared on the screen, which remained visible in front of him. After a short pause, Oleg decided to approach the object.
The first thing that caught his attention was several round openings, approximately 300 mm in diameter, which at first he interpreted to be portholes.
Inside these openings, at a depth of 300–350 mm, a “grid” of intersecting lines, light grey in color, was visible. The central axis of the openings was displaced approximately 30 degrees from the plane formed by the surface of the object.
Oleg was also able to examine one of the support legs that the object rested on. The leg consisted of two parts, which were connected at an articulating joint.
The cross-section of each of the two parts of the leg was in the profile of a three-sided channel beam, with the lower part being smaller in diameter, such that it could be folded inside the upper portion.
On the bottom of the ship, recessed areas were clearly visible into which the legs could be retracted. However, because of poor illumination in the area where the leg was located, Oleg was not able to examine in detail the actual construction of the leg.
The far side of the object was resting on trees and was slanted toward Oleg, such that the lower portion of the opening was just above the level of his head. In order to establish the material that the object was made of, Oleg wanted to touch it with his hand.
A shaft came out of the portion of the object that was nearest to him. It appeared to be a round, smooth tube, with a diameter of approximately 50 mm.
The tube was cold and felt metallic. Then, events developed in the following manner:
“I had a desire to look inside, but since the door was above my head, I decided to grab hold of the tube and jump. The instant I grabbed the tube, I found myself standing just inside the opening. There was nothing there in the form of either steps or an elevator.
I did not feel any kind of external influence, but rather everything seemed to happen naturally, or by itself. I thought of the possibility of danger to me and decided to be as careful as possible.
At that instant, I received a message on the screen that I had nothing to be afraid of, and that I could enter.
Upon entering the corridor, I looked at the walls and noticed the absence of doors.
The corridor was significantly wider than the opening, the floor was flat, and the walls and ceiling formed an oval shape.
“I went along the corridor toward the shimmering light and felt that I was walking on a flat, metallic floor.
Somehow, I got the feeling that the surrounding walls did not have simply a decorative covering, but rather they were structural, and something was connected to them from the back side.
There clearly was some sort of strengthening device attached to them. I did not want to touch the walls, so I am unable to say exactly what it was that served to strengthen them.”
Masses of Lights
Oleg had to proceed along the corridor for approximately 20–25 feet. At the end of the corridor, he saw that it entered into a large hall with a diameter of approximately 60 feet.
On the periphery of the hall, there were five other entrances, similar in appearance to the one through which he had just entered. The ceiling in the hall was domed and it was emitting a soft, diffuse, blue light.
Between the other entrances and along the walls, there were panels of flashing lights. Each panel appeared to consist of five or six vertical elements.
To the left of the entrance through which Oleg had entered, two walls had no panels. In place of the panels, there were horizontal recesses in the walls, which were dark in color.
Also to the left, he observed two dark, vague spots that looked like bags, which at first were motionless, but then began to move toward him. The bags were identical to the “mass” which he had seen near the fire.
Oleg stopped, and stood motionless at the entrance to the hall.
“As soon as I looked around the hall, certain questions came to me, answers to which appeared immediately on the screen. But then I noticed that answers appeared in my head before I was able to read them on the screen.
Several answers were accompanied by demonstrations of the operation of those structures that interested me.
In such a manner, my question of the significance of the dark, horizontal recess in the wall off to my left was demonstrated to me.
The recess was a three- dimensional information screen, on which I was shown the interior of another sister ship, with the same moving ‘masses’ (during the demonstration, the two ‘masses’ in our ship were motionless).
Then, they showed a ship in space, among the stars, and at the end of the demonstration, they showed the presenter of a Soviet television program called Vremya.
“Off to my right side, there was an oval control panel, or desk, located about five feet from the wall, on which there were many switches and lights.
All of the illuminated buttons had a flat, square shape.
Some of them were elevated above the level of the control panel, and others were flush with the top of the panel. On the upper surface of the lamps, there were some symbols in the form of geometric figures, e.g. circles, triangles, quadrilateral figures, lines, etc., and combinations of the above.
The black switches on the panel were similar in appearance to toggle switches. There were no meters or scales on the control panel at all.”
In addition, Oleg described a long, straight divan, which stood next to the control panel, and a circular crack in the floor, which surrounded the central part of the hall.
The crack gave him reason to believe that the central part of the floor was able to rotate, allowing the control panel to be positioned in front of any of the vertical panels situated along the walls.
On the vertical panels, Oleg noticed the same types of lights that were on the control panel. Many of these lights were flashing. The entire interior of the hall was white in color, including the floor, and only from the ceiling shone soft, blue light.
Looking upward, Oleg tried to locate the source of the light, while simultaneously asking about the nature of the light. No answer to his question appeared on the screen.
Then, in response to his question, “Who are you?” and “Where are you from?” the dome in the hall slowly started to dim, and like in a planetarium, a star map appeared on the ceiling.
While Oleg was trying to find some familiar star system, one of the stars suddenly began to pulsate and descend slowly.
The dark, almost black starlit sky, combined with the pulsating star suspended over Oleg’s head, as well as with the flashing lights of the control and vertical panels, emitted enough light to permit him to see all elements in the entire interior of the spacecraft.
In a minute, the pulsating star slowly rose and the dome illuminated with the diffuse blue light.
Oleg was unable to carefully study and remember the star map shown to him. He asked where this pulsating star was located. They answered, “This is in your galaxy”.
“I asked question after question. The answers I received were heard in my head before I saw them on the screen.
I asked, ‘What kind of ship am I on now? What kind of propulsion system do you use to make it fly?’
In response I was told that this spacecraft was a scout ship and used electromagnetic fields to fly.
I was also told that they were studying our planet, which they need as a springboard to the future.
In response to my question ‘Do you have any connection with Bigfoot?’, they said, ‘Yes’ and added that they watch Bigfoot continuously.
As I was asking question after question, I suddenly noticed that a third ‘mass’ had appeared in the hall and then a fourth.
I watched a conversation take place between them and came to the understanding that the time for me to leave had arrived. My next thought was to leave something with them for a memory.
I took off my watch, and wanted to put it on the floor, but at that moment, I was told that they had a complete knowledge of the Earth and needed nothing.
For the first time during this visit, they asked me, ‘Why do I use a watch made in another country?’
“Then I asked, ‘Is it possible to see you once again?’ They said, ‘If you are in danger we will find you within 15 seconds’.
“Backing out a few steps from the hall, I turned and went along the corridor towards the opening.
As I came up to the opening of the spacecraft, I took hold of the tube by my right hand and I immediately found myself standing on the ground.
Not looking back, I went to the ditch and crossed over to the road, to the same place where I had stood a few minutes before.
When I looked back, I noticed that the tube and the opening had disappeared.
After a few seconds, I saw the outer rim begin to move in a clockwise direction.
The dome began to move approximately 30 seconds later in a counterclockwise direction and a luminescence surrounded the spacecraft.
As the revolutions became faster, the luminescence enveloped the spacecraft and it became a ball of light.”
Oleg noticed that the rotation of all parts of the craft and the luminescence was happening in absolute silence.
At this moment he saw on the road two more cars with their headlights on. For a few seconds this distracted his attention from the spacecraft.
The sound of the trees cracking made him turn and look at the spacecraft.
The ball of light slightly shifted position and slowly began to rise. Abruptly accelerating, the craft shot out of sight towards the north east.
His friend Nikolai got out of the truck and together with the occupants from the other vehicles, came up to Oleg. They asked him a lot of questions. Oleg was impressed by the experience but at the same time, was too moved to speak or fully realize all that had just happened.
His hands and legs were trembling.
When he got into his truck, he was unable to use the accelerator or to shift gears. He had to let his partner drive.
Oleg leaned back on the truck seat and looked at his watch, which he still had in his hand.
From the moment the truck had stopped, 20 minutes had passed. They still had a day and a half to get to Moscow, their destination. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE – Project Blue Book case dated October 24, 1968, when missile crews, control personnel and maintenance personnel observed a UFO in the vicinity of the base. The following is the tape between the air controllers and the B-52 crew with call sign JAG Three one.
At 0330 hours: The controllers received the information that there was a UFO 24 miles to the northwest. A B-52 jet bomber (JAG 31) flying at 2000 feet was on a calibration check and requests a clearance from radar personnel.
At 0334 “MIB (Minot) approach control does JAG 31 have clearance to WT fix at Flight Level 2000?”
JAG 31, Roger climb out on a heading of 290 climb and maintain 5000. Stand by for higher altitude. We’re trying to get it from center now.
At 0335, the controller asked, “And JAG 31 on your way out to the WT fix request you look out toward your one o’clock position for the next fifteen miles and see if you see any orange glows out there? “Roger, roger glows 31, “Someone is seeing UFOs again!” “Roger I see a…….. (Rest of transmission garbled)
At 0352, The controller then radioed, “Three one, the UFO is being picked up by weather’s radar also. Should be at our one o’clock position three miles now”
The pilot said, “We have nothing on our airborne radar and I’m in some pretty thick haze now and unable to see out that way.”
At 0358, the pilot then requested an instrument guided approach, and received instructions. The pilot called, and then the transmitter went dead, but they could hear instructions from the ground. The controller asked them to squawk ident,” which meant to use the aircraft’s transponder which would paint the controller’s radar with a large, glowing blip with the aircraft’s identification.
At 0400, the controller then radioed, “JAG 31 if you hear me squawk ident…JAG 31 ident observed. Cleared for the approach attempt. Contact on frequency 271 decimal three and you’re cleared for the low approach. They continued to have radio problems for another couple of minutes.
At 0402, they were able to communicate easily. The pilot said, “Our UFO was off to our left side when we started penetration.
“Roger, understand you did see something on your left side.” “We had a radar return at about a mile and a quarter, at nine o’clock position for about the time we left 200 to 14…”They discussed the troubles with the transmission and then, the controller asked, “Affirmative. I was wondering how far out did you see that UFO?”
“He was about one and a half miles off our left wing at 35 miles when we started in and stayed with us ’til about 10.”
“I wonder if that could have been your radio troubles?”
“I don’t know…. But that’s exactly when they started. “At 0413, Jag 31 are you observing any more UFOs? Negative on radar. We can’t see anything visually.
JAG 31, request you have someone report to base ops after you land.
What we have, then, was a group of sightings made by men on the ground, at the missile sites scattered around the base. There was radar sightings from ground and weather’s radar. There were visual sightings from the crew of the B-52, and an airborne radar sighting where the target traveled at 3,000 miles per hour.
Scope photographs were taken. There were sightings made by S.Sgt. Bond the FSC at Nov. Flight, S.Sgt. Smith at Oscar-1, Julelt, and Mike Flight Team and a number of men in widely scattered locations.
The object landed at location AA-43 and the entire observation lasted for 45 minutes. Fourteen other people in separate locations also reported the UFO. Security alarm were activated for both the outer and inner ring at the missile sites. When the guards arrived at the outer door it was open and the combination lock on the inner door had been moved.
Editors Note: The case in my estimation was never investigated properly. Project Blue Book personnel never sent a representative and the case was essentially written off despite the interest of several Strategic Air Command generals including 15th Air Force’s Major General Nichols.
The sighting was officially explained by on November 13, by Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla who wrote, “The following conclusions have been reached after a thorough study of the data submitted to Foreign Technology Division. The ground visual sightings appear to be of the star Sirius and the B-52, which was flying in the area.
The B-52 radar contact and the temporary loss of the UHF transmission could be attributed to a plasma similar to ball lightning. The air visual from the B-52 could be the star Vega, which was on the horizon at the time, or it could be a light on the ground, or possibly a plasma. No further investigation by the Foreign Technology Division is contemplated.
This is a classic Blue Book case where dozens of Air Force personnel who see B-52s and stars nightly have their testimony doubted. They know when they’ve seen a UFO. In this case the scientists doing the Condon report agreed that this was a real UFO.
The apparent damage to the missile site and disruption of B-52 radio transmissions was in my opinion a threat to primary nuclear offensive systems and should not have been trivialized. The records speak for themselves. This article was taken from Scientific Ufology written by Captain Kevin D. Randle USAFR.
It appears Quintanilla either did not care or had instructions to write off most of the sightings with any available excuse. I wonder why the reports were white washed, while the Air Force’s scientific advisor Alan Hynek was coming to the opposite conclusion that, UFOs were real? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Ufologists are at a loss: in the sky over El Paso, Texas, a driver recorded what appears to be a glowing triangular-shaped UFO. The object was moving completely silently.
The video shows the object flying at high speed by a mysterious “glowing triangle”, and surprised not only is this unique form, but also its bright backlight. In addition, the UFO moved soundlessly, that is, he could be mistaken for extraterrestrial aircraft.
Although there are many reports of triangle-shaped craft, they are rarely captured on any type of media. American researchers of extraterrestrial civilizations and the aliens are surprised by the capture of this type of flying craft.
Every year the aliens appear on the planet more often and are manifested more and more in an amazing way – what could it be?… Some observers carefully analyzed the material and verified its authenticity. Webmaster B J Booth of the UFO Casebook did note that it was unusual that the car seemed to pace the UFO so well.
Videographer statement on UFO
Driving to work and noticed a strange light in a triangular shape toward the horizon. Took my cell phone and took pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy s8.
I was on my way to work the morning of August 31, 2018 at 6:25 in the morning. I stared at the sunrise as usual because I have to stop a red light, right before I get on the freeway to work.
After a few minutes I glanced to the right and saw a glowing triangle and thought it was weird. So I took several pictures and a short video with my Samsung Galaxy S8.
It’s still new to me and noticed afterwards that the phone does an amazing thing automatically… it stabilized the video on its own. Yes, I did zoom in on the object and luckily it worked perfectly. Even if it’s explainable, it is an interesting video. pictures.
“I had just come out of the front door around 7.15pm to go to pick up my wife who works at Glenfield General Hospital. I looked up and saw some strange strobe lighting in the sky. It wasn’t the height of the normal commercial aircraft going over – nowhere near that height, more the height of helicopters as they’re flying over.” He said that in the clear night sky he could easily make out a triangular shape with lights on each corner and there were red and green strobe lights splashing down the side. It was far too big to be a drone – it looked at least four times the size of helicopters that fly over. It looked a foot wide at arms length – probably no more than 5,000 feet up. It was travelling west towards the motorway.” Nigel watched the craft moving across the sky for two minutes before it vanished behind a block of flats , so he moved into a car parking area near his home where he followed it again for three minutes before it also was obscured by houses. It was while in the car park that he spotted a helicopter flying towards the scene. He thought the sighting was over so drove off in his car for the five minute journey to collect his wife from Glenfield General Hospital but spotted it again from his car as he drove into the hospital car park where he then counted three helicopters. He watched the triangle for two minutes flying over the hospital before it again vanished behind buildings. He picked up his wife Emma and immediately told her: “I think I’ve just seen a UFO. And as we were coming out I pointed out one of the helicopters that was still flying around.” He said that as a bench mark when they got home he and his wife saw a commercial aircraft fly over from the same direction at a much greater height. ”It was flying ten times as fast as the object I saw” he said “The airliner had gone out of view in ten seconds” Nigel told me that as a child he’d had a sighting of a UFO from his school playing field which was “a very large cigar shaped object. “ Then a couple of years ago while driving and waiting at traffic lights he saw “what appeared to be an airliner flying over but it had no wings” How did he feel when he saw the triangle? ”Probably more excited than anything – and inquisitive. I didn’t feel nervous or anything like that” he said. He added: “I had my phone camera with me but in my mind I was too busy taking in detail watching it rather than getting the camera on and knowing how dark it was. I was just gobsmacked as to what was flying over me” He said he thinks some UFOs may be military top secret aircraft. But he added “I don’t think we can be the only life in the universe. I’m a strong believer that we are being visited. I think as a species we are in our infancy in the grand scheme of things. “ About his triangle sighting he said “I don’t know what to think – whether it was military or other. But what I saw was completely unusual and something I’ve never seen before”. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While riding in the car with my mom at around sundown when over the tops of the trees I see what I thought to be a helicopter coming out of the lake behind the tree line and had a light on each blade but they were moving unusually slow and as we got closer it rose up over the tree line and hovered across the highway. At that point I realized it was a disk/saucer not a helicopter and the light were in the middle on the outer edge and as it began to move the faster the light moved around it. They were mounted to almost as if the entire middle was spinning while the top and bottom were stationary. It hovered across the hwy and over a church. It changed directions and took off to space/ high altitude in a outward and upward angle and it took one to two seconds to go from a large disc to a speck and it seemed to leave a trail but it looked like a light trail that only lasted a couple seconds. This experience has changed my life I was able to see something extraordinary that at that age is unexplainable and it is burned in my memory like it happened yesterday. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
We had been visiting Jerome, AZ and drove up to scenic overlook on Hwy 89A above Jerome.
When we exited the car, I walked up to wall at NE end of parking lot. I saw a flash of light ahead of me and asked if anyone saw it. I was only one out of 4 who did.
My wife was taking a photo with her IPhone 7. When she looked at the photo, it showed what I thought I had seen. There is a flash near the wall, that moves to my right, then flashes higher above my right vision.
Next frame shows a 4 sided flying object in only one frame of the â€œlive frameâ€ and then is gone.
We have photo of it. I now believe we saw a flying ship due to the photo.
I was outside taking out the trash and saw a strange light in the sky. I had my phone on me, so I called my wife who was in the house and told her to get outside.
She was standing by the garage and I was walking back towards the house (about 90 feet). My neighbor was also outside.
It appeared to be moving towards the ground, vertically towards the area where we live. Then prior to it disappearing, it moved back towards the sky.
It was bright and disk-shaped, no sounds were present.
It stayed in one place for a few seconds and then would move erratically in a chaotic pattern, but with no recognizable signature to identify it by any means.
It was not an aircraft, because immediately as this was happening we heard two jets (aircraft of jet-like origin) moving towards the object.
We tried to videotape this with the camera phone but it was too dark, and would not be sufficient for what we saw.
After we heard the jets coming towards the area of the object, it shot across the sky and disappeared. The jets continued to make loud noise, but soon after were gone as well. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On a plane bound to Greece, a man has videotaped an unknown flying object which was flying alongside the jet. The footage was shared by passenger Kerry Flores on Youtube and has been seen by many over the world-wide video site. Comments from viewers included: “Incredible video catch. I’m thinking (sic) you got a UFO,” was one comment. While others weren’t convinced and said that it was a trail of smoke from another plane.
Either way, I’m pretty sure we can all agree that we’re not too keen on weird things flying anywhere close to us at 30,000 feet? I’m not sure about you, but if I spotted this next to my window while on a plane, I would have probably panicked a bit.
This is a recount, to the best of my recollection, of events that occurred from October to December, 1968. I swear that the following is true and actually happened.
All of these sightings occurred at a place locally called “The Tote Road.” This was a wood road near Toad’s End on the east side of the Passagassawaukeag (Passy) River, and it ended on a high point of land.
This provided a view of a long field through which high-tension power lines ran. The lines are in a generally east-west direction.
The Tote Road was a place where young people hung out at night, out-of-the way, and a pleasant location to sit and listen to the radio and watch the stars.
I was one of those young people and spent many pleasant hours up on the Tote Road, often with dates and sometimes, just with my buddies.
Sometime in mid-October, we had our first unusual experience.
While sitting in my 1967 Ford, we noticed a lighted object coming along approximately 100 feet above the power line. The object came from the east and when a few hundred yards away from us, it halted, still above the power lines.
We heard no sound and were fascinated by the sight.
While we watched, we saw the object spin about. It was of a basic, elliptical shape. It was lit with red and green lights and appeared to have windows.
As it spun as if on an axis, we noted that small, lighted objects dropped from the object and drifted downward, toward the power lines. We could not discern the nature of the small objects, but they left a kind of light trail, or lighted thread as they descended.
I don’t recall seeing the small objects return to the larger, hovering object. After what might have been an hour, the large object sped off toward the west.
We were sort of shaken by the thing and left soon after the object left. But a couple nights later, we determined to return.
This became a regular habit, and we went almost every night. About half the time, we were rewarded by seeing similar objects acting in much the same way as during our initial sighting.
In fact, seeing these things became routine and we became desensitized to it. In time, we began to bring others with us to see the objects.
On some nights, we would see multiple objects. These each and every one, followed the power lines. Never, did one deviate from this pattern.
Then one night, after watching a (by this time) standard-sized object, we were amazed when another appeared above it.
The new object was giant and dwarfed the other. This was so big that it was plain to see portals, or windows, as it slowly rotated.
This rotating deserves some explaining. It didn’t appear as if the entire object rotated, just the windows. These flashed red and blue light, blinking as they went around the diameter of the object.
The craft was neither saucer-shaped or cigar-shaped, but somewhere in between, something like a elongated saucer.
We strained to see inside the windows but were unable to discern anything in any detail. We did see objects inside, but could not tell what they were.
The large object dropped multiple, small objects which descended in threadlike light trails. This scared us a bit, but we remained, watching. Eventually, the large object, the small object and the multiple small objects sped off and we left soon afterward.
This continued more or less the same through October, November, and into early December.
Then one night, Steve Woodrow and I each had dates. We went to the Tote Road to park with our girlfriends. We had some beer, which was on the back seat with Steve and his girl.
Soon, before it was even dark, an object came down the power line and this one was another very large one.
It hovered, performing the same actions as the previous one. We decided to leave the car and walk down toward the object.
Before leaving, we made sure to put our beer on the floor in back and I took off my coat (it had turned warm that night… some kind of front, apparently, had come in) and covered it, so anyone walking up to the car would not see it.
We walked down toward the object and the girls became frightened and refused to go any further. This was, as I later learned, probably good advice. So we stood there, watching this large object hover over the power lines.
It was huge and the girls were speechless. This was the closest any of us had ever been to one of these.
Eventually, the girls convinced us to return to the car and they and Steve left. But I decided to walk just a little closer. I was able to make out movement inside the craft, although again, the forms were vague and indistinct.
I suddenly felt a chill and became very frightened. So I turned and ran back to the car where the others waited.
Back at the car, we watched the object take off. We left the place and took the girls home. This was on a Saturday night. The next morning, I got up and it had turned cold again.
So I went out to the car to get my coat. But it was gone. I thought that perhaps Steve or his girl had inadvertently kicked it under the seat with their feet, so I stooped down and reached under.
And I felt the arm of the coat and pulled it out. But that’s all there was to it, just the arm. This was a sheepskin-lined, corduroy coat, something like “The Marlboro Man” wore.
And someone had pulled the arm off it… think it was the left arm. Little threads stuck out at different angles, which made me think that whoever did this was very strong.
They had to have simply snapped the arm off. So I called Steve and told him off. We had an argument over the phone and I refused to believe that he wasn’t responsible for destroying my coat.
I took the sleeve and kept it in the car, to shove it in Steve’s face when I saw him. He continued to deny any knowledge of it.
After that, nobody wanted to go back up to the Tote Road. So I went by myself.
It was a good place to think, when the objects weren’t around. I went for three nights straight after the coat incident. That third night that I went there, it had snowed, a little less than an inch.
I pulled in and sat there, listening to the radio (I remember hearing the Beatles) and keeping warm with the heater running. No objects appeared.
I hadn’t seen one since the night with the girls. I went home.
I returned the following evening and pulling in, saw that nobody else had been there, the only tire tracks were my own, from the night before.
And there in the snow on one of my tire tracks was a dark form. I studied it briefly and tried to figure out how it got there. There were no footprints or tire tracks.
It was as if the thing had been dropped from the sky.
I got out of my car and walked to the thing and saw that it was what was left of my coat. I picked it up and got back in my car. I was practically paralyzed with fear.
I backed around and left as fast as I could. I have not been back to that place since, although I live only a few miles away.
I took my coat, minus the sleeve, home and showed it to my grandparents, whom I lived with. I had told them about the flying objects.
I had mentioned them before, but not in any detail. Grandpa was nonchalant about it. I don’t think he believed me.
Grandma was a righteous woman and had continually warned me that I should stop going out to that place at night… she thought the objects had to do with the devil. I discounted her thoughts.
Since my coat was ruined, Grandpa took it and went downstairs, to the drive-in basement. There, he kept his beagle hound, “Mickey.” Grandpa took my coat and placed it where Mickey slept, as an extra blanket for him.
Mickey backed away from it and growled, low and deep. His hair bristled, I remember.
Mickey was always gentle and had never before growled at anyone. Grandpa took the coat and burned it.
That is the essence of what happened. I might add that during the time we were visiting the Tote Road, Steve set up a 35mm camera on a tripod and took pictures.
He left the lens open because it was night and all he got were some time-lapse photos, with no definition.
Also, Steve contacted a man who was a UFO expert… he visited with us and took our statements. I don’t remember his name.
I think he was connected with the newly-formed Unity College. Steve may, however. It has been a long time, though.
Shortly after all this, Steve was drafted into the United States Marines and was soon deployed overseas. Steve now lives in either Washington State or Oregon… I think Washington.
Steve visited his family here in Maine several years ago. He says he does not remember ever going to the Tote Road or seeing any UFOs back in 1968 or any other time.
I live in Waldo, only about three miles in a direct line from the Tote Road and very near the same high-tension power lines where the UFOs traveled. My grandparents are both dead, long ago.
That is all I have to report about this. This is my true statement and I testify upon my oath of honor that the above-described events are true.
Forty-two years have passed and the memory of this incident haunts me.
Perhaps some day I shall undergo hypnotic regression and record the session. Maybe that would disclose further details.

The details of a Russian Crash on or about 1969 are sketchy and somewhat suspect. This case comes from the so-called “Secret KGB Files,” which were reportedly smuggled out of the former Soviet Union.
Reportedly, $10,000 was paid for the information. The details of these secret files were first offered to the general public on 9-13-98 as part of a TNT special titled “The Secret UFO Files of the KGB.”
The show featured extraordinary film and still photographs of the UFO recovery, and also a portion of autopsy film on part of an alien body.
The event itself, according to the files, occurred in the state of Sverdlovsky, which was formerly Yekatrinburg of the USSR. The crash story follows a familiar pattern normally associated with this type of report. The fiery crash of an unknown object occurred in March 1969.
The site was secured by the Russian military, and one dead alien was found in the wreckage. The remains of the craft and alien were brought to a secure location, and the alien body was autopsied.
Both still and moving pictures were taken of the craft, its retrieval, and the alien autopsy.
The autopsy shows only an alien torso and arm. From the size of the body parts, the alien would have been an extremely small being.
The TNT special features Roger Moore, veteran actor and former James Bond, who discusses other UFO events, along with interviews with UFO experts, CIA agents, and other film.
Probably the most notable footage is from MIG gun cameras of confrontations with UFOs. There have been only a few still frames of this footage in America, and I have not been able as of this writing, 11-01-2002, to obtain the videos.
The show itself is mediocre, and its only redeeming quality is the presentation of the UFO crash story. Supposedly, the crash story was validated by secret KGB documents.
The footage at the crash site does seem to be authentic at least on several points. The truck in the film is a circa 1950 model ZIS151, which has not been used by the military for quite some time, and the truck would have been difficult to find to stage a hoax with.
Other elements of the film do not exhibit any obvious signs of a hoax, as to the movement of the soldiers, the timing of the film as to shadows, and the UFO itself.
There are also several documents shown to verify the event itself, and an eyewitness to the event who swears that the recovery mission did occur.
The footage of the autopsy film shows personnel without caps and gowns, which seemed odd to me at first, but after some research I found that this was commonplace for that era in Russia.
The furnishings in the room are acceptable, and in Russia have probably not changed much today. Three men in their 20’s and 30’s are performing the procedure, and one woman is taking notes.
The note taker is identified as KGB stenographer O. A. Pshonikina.
The alien’s torso and arm are lying together on the table as the autopsy is performed, and there are documents shown to support the autopsy.
Although the USA-Russia relationship is much improved over a few years ago, it still lacks. Any information received is subject to translation, and often times there are problems with interpretation. It is sad there is not more cooperation between the two countries.
Hi Ken: With another Covid lockdown looming over the U.K. I decided to go out UFO spotting while I was still able to do so. I wanted to see if I could capture any more anomalous objects at Dawlish. When I got there I headed towards the bridge that crosses over the railway and leads to Boat Cove. I walked up the steps and then walked across to the other side of the bridge where I stood taking photographs of the sea and surrounding area.
Then when I looked through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera towards Langstone Rock at Dawlish Warren, I suddenly spotted a rod like object that flew in to frame. I immediately started to take photographs and watched as the object flew across the beach and passed directly over two people who were walking their dog along the beach there. The object then flew out of frame and I lost sight of it. I had only managed to capture the rod like object in two of the photographs that I had taken as it was moving far too fast for me to follow it with my camera.
The object was quite large and I couldn’t believe that the people walking there dog did not react to it passing over them. They must not of seen the object or felt any disturbance in the air which I found to be very odd as it was travelling at quite some speed and should of caused a lot of displacement in the air which they surely would of felt. I really wanted to walk over to their location and speak to them, but it would of taken me far too long to walk that distance and get over there on that beach by which time they would of been long gone. The photographs were taken at 5:40 PM on the 4th of November 2020, at Dawlish Devon England. All the best John.
Although Arrowhead UFOs are not the most common of UFO shapes sighted, this sighting was even more unusual because of its duration. The craft was seen by the entire crew of the Oil Tanker “British Grenadier” for exactly 3 days!
The event occurred around April/May 1969 while the “British Grenadier” was sailing through the Gulf of Mexico. The UFO appeared directly above the ship at exactly noon on the first day. It just seemed to appear as nobody saw it arrive and it remained above the ship for the next 3 days.
According to reports the craft was approximately 1 mile above the ship and dark blue in colour during the day. At night it appeared as a silvery light. The weather conditions were good at the time, with a clear sky and calm seas.
On the first day of its arrival (one minute after midnight), the ships engines suddenly stopped and only emergency lighting and steering were available. The crew managed to restart the engines, which took some time as all the pumps had to be shut down and restarted manually.
The second day saw all the food storage refridgerators closed down and no reason for this event could be found.
On the third day at 11.45 pm one of the crew noticed that the lights were out in the ships air conditioning room and a door leading to the crews accomodation was opened. The engineer passed through the door to investigate and spoke to two firemen. But the next day the same door was found welded shut! Apparently, the door had been welded before the ship left dock (because of a fault), but the door was definitely open for the engineer to have walked through it.
A few minutes after this event the engines stopped again, leaving just emergency lighting and steering (again one minute after midnight!). They were restarted once more, but later it was discovered that the starter motor for the emergency diesel generator had been dismantled. All the parts of the generator were neatly placed by the machine as if someone had examined it.
At exactly noon on the third day the craft vanished in the same manner as it had appeared.
Although all these events were recorded in the ships log, this is the first time (to our knowledge) that this event has been published. We would be interested in hearing from any of the crew that were aboard the BP Oil Tanker “British Grenadier” at this time, in order to obtain more information about this sighting. If you were there and would like to write to us, please send an email to: Grenadier@profindpages.com source: NOTE: The above image is CGI.
CIRCA AUGUST 1970……..SMITHERS BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA
I was in the back area of the property looking for my horse to go riding that day. Normally my horse along with the others would have been there but for some reason they were spooked and up in the woods on the hillside. I never clued in that something might be wrong. I was on my way back along the fence towards the house when I just stopped in my tracks. I had this feeling that I should look up and that’s when I saw that craft above my head. The air was still. I never heard a sound coming from it. It was just in the air and was not moving. I don’t know how long it was up there before I noticed it but after about 30 seconds it just took off into thin air. I had a clear shot of the whole sky in the valley and I tell you it just vanished within a couple of seconds – without a sound.
The following is the outlay of the ranch where the encounter occurred. Most of our property was located on a hillside (to the left) which cannot be seen on the following diagram.
For days afterwards I drew a stick diagram of the body and how the wings were. I knew there was something odd about those wings facing the wrong way. I never associated it to a UFO for many many years because UFOs were suppose to be flying saucers, or at least that’s what I was lead to believe. The first thing I thought, after my mind went blank staring at that thing in awe, was that it was military. Perhaps because it was black, who knows. But it wasn’t right and was completely out of place. Not to mention hovering over my head. I also began drawing a strange diagram. I spent days working at it to get it right. The teardrops had to be very very dark with a slight shine to it. The original was very elaborate but I lost it over the years while moving around so much. Today I just attempted to recreate how it generally looked. The whole time a word kept popping into my head as I was working on it. Satus. I just felt it had something to do with this diagram and so I wrote the word with it. I felt so strongly that this diagram was important and that it had meaning. Who knows.
It wasn’t long after my encounter with the craft that I ended up back in that end of the property again. This time to bury my cat who had suddenly just up and died for no reason. I remember he had blood coming out of his nose. I loved him so much I wanted to bury him near a tree which had a hollow in it. I loved that spot for some reason. Felt special to me. The horses were back there eating grass and hanging out like they do. I laid my cat down in a deep hole I dug and then covered him up. I knew if I didn’t protect him the coyotes would get to him so I went to search for some big rocks to cover his burial spot. I found a couple went and laid them near the burial and then went in search of some more. I remember feeling like I was being followed so I stopped and turned around. A young filly was the closest to me, however she was eating grass and looking away so I figured I was imagining things so I continued searching for big rocks. Again I felt like I was being followed. The young filly was even closer but she was eating and ignoring me. I turned back around and continued my search. This time I knew for sure something was behind me. I wheeled around in time to see the filly rear up. She towered over my head. That’s when I realised she was going to strike me. I looked down in time otherwise she would have broken my face. Instead she struck the top of my head.
I collapsed to the ground thinking she broke my neck. I screamed blue murder. I just knew she would attack me again if I didn’t get out of there so I crawled to a windrow nearby. My folks heard the scream back at the house and came running. They thought I was being mauled by a bear. My face and long hair was covered with blood from the gash on top my head. To this day we do not know why the horse attacked me. Our horses were good and had never done that before. And it never happened again. The attack occurred close to where I had seen that strange craft. To this day I have not come across anyone having had a similar sighting. I’m still waiting to hear from anyone who has. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
Brownsville – On October15, 1985, on a clear spring day just before sunset, the three witnesses were driving west along Highway 20 below Camptonville. As we rounded a sharp curve, we came upon three silver discs landed in a field to the right of the road. I pulled onto the right shoulder just as the large discs suddenly shot upward in powerful ascent. I felt compelled to jump out of the car and starred excitedly up at the saucers.I felt elated and awe-struck. I estimate the size of each disc to have been between 50 and 75 feet in diameter. Above us, the discs blocked out most of the sky. They appeared quite solid and metallic, with very definite mechanical features – including a central opening from which a powerful conical beam projected straight down from each disc. The beam color was brilliant bluish-white, and we were washed with the light, yet could still see the features beneath the discs. I don’t recall any sound, but there might have been a wind – those details have grown very fuzzy over the 35 years since the encounter. I do recall that the three discs were locked into a tight triangular formation, with one disc forming an apex above the other two.
When the discs reached above a hundred feet overhead, they briefly hovered. Then all together, they tilted about 45 degrees and shot off toward the south, which took them straight across the highway and over above the Feather River Canyon, which we overlooked out to our left. As the craft traveled over the canyon, the conical beams appeared to light up a big portion of the valley – the beams would have to have been extremely powerful. When the objects reached an angle of what might have been 60 degrees in the sky over to our left, they abruptly vanished, leaving three glowing purple clouds where each disc had disappeared. Those clouds remained visible and softly glowing for the entire half-hour that it took us to complete our drive home to Forbestown, where we were temporarily staying at the time. It should be noted that I am aware of a considerable amount of amnesia and possible abduction both during and after the encounter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I have seen this object in the past, but I wrote it off as a star or an airplane. I do live by an airport. However, I now know this is not a star or an airplane. I believe it enjoys showing itself, or thinks people will write it off as a star if it only moves occasionally. The 10 minute video gets good at the 3 minute mark, you see flame or light from a thruster as it moves to the right. I had to move the phone to the right multiple times to keep up with the object. Note the electricity that is clearly visible all around the object. It is very clear if you focus on it. There also looks to be a field around the object. In the beginning of the 7 minute video, the object is moving around in a very peculiar fashion. I am uploading 3 videos. The 10 minute video is the first one, I took another 1 minute and 55 second video about a minute later, and the 7 minute video was 20 or so minutes thereafter. I have seen this object very often in the past, but approximately 5 days ago I saw it moving in a VERY unusual way. On that occasion, I did not grab my phone because I thought the object was too small and far away to come across well on a phone. Boy was I wrong. With the 10x zoom, you can see it much better than with the naked eye. I will continue to observe and take video of this phenomenon. It is clearly not Venus or a star. NOTE: The above image was extracted from the witness video.
I have been researching the Planet Mars for decades and I have discovered many strange objects, on the surface, thanks to the Curiosity Rover. Trying to find the hi-definition images is the hard part. NASA seems to have 100 web sites but finding the one with great images can some time be impossible. I have been recently using Gigapan and some of the images are magnificent. There seems to be many dead fossils and maybe some live ones on the surface. I have only published the ones that are clear but NASA has blurred some of the object on purpose. They are definitely trying to hide something. E-mail me with your thoughts and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HI ken: I was looking out to sea from the high bridge that crosses over the railway line at Teignmouth and I was focusing primarily on the four cruise ships that were anchored just offshore in a line there. I took some photographs of the Arcadia cruise ship which had only just recently dropped anchor there. Then when I was done photographing that particular vessel I looked towards the Queen Mary 2 and Ventura cruise ship, where to my surprise two sphere shaped UFOs flew up out of the sea.
I immediately took some photographs with my Nikon P900 camera and watched in amazement as the two sphere’s flew off in separate directions and disappeared from view. These sphere objects moved so fast that I was only able to capture them together in one photograph. I captured each sphere object as they passed over each of the ships. The sphere that passed over the Queen Mary 2 seemed larger than the other one that had past over the Ventura cruise ship. Unfortunately Not much detail can be ascertained from the sphere Shaped objects in the photograph as they both exhibit motion blur due to the ludicrous speed they were traveling at.
It really was incredible that I was able to capture them at all in a photograph. The photograph was taken at 4:36 PM on the 23rd of October 2020, at Teignmouth Devon England. All the best John.
Several hours of lights appearing, multiplying disappearing. These three all come from one 12 minute long video. We were camping in the desert and it was a dark night with a crescent moon. We had just sat down to our dinner at our picnic table, when these lights appeared out in the desert. Media File 1. We see lights multiply, disappear. We are talking to nearby campers at Belle Campground. They said that they had never seen anything like it. This video is the last in sequence of these three. Media File 2. Earliest appearance from the same 12 minute long video. 7:22 pm time stamp. You hear the loud buzzing noises on audio.
Never heard this before or since on my phone. Media file 3. Another appearance that happened before #1: showing them appear and disappear. We were at this spot about one year ago, under the Hunter’s Moon, and looked for lights, but saw nothing unusual. Dr. Greer had been doing CE5 in Joshua Tree, for several nights previous to our arrival on 10-20-2020. We camped here for several more nights and saw nothing unusual. Actress Roma Downey posted a video of the lights that night on her Twitter, so she saw them too.
KENS NOTE: MUFON is trying to debunk these light as flairs. Suggesting guesses to an investigator is not investigating. THIS IS WHAT A FLAIR LOOKS LIKE…..
Went outside to look at stars as I do frequently and as I looked up I noticed a satellite/bright star sized object moving NE to SW. It would hover them jet about a thumb at arm’s length. It did this several time, turned 90 degrees up then SW again before going 90 degrees down then started the eradic movements again. It made no sound. It was bright, somewhat pulsating and as I zoomed in I could see a trail around it and it looked as if it was spinning. Eventually I lost if behind my house. It seemed to affect my camera in that my phone would zoom in and out as I was trying to record. Upon watching the video a few more times I actually noticed a 2nd object near the first. Imagine a satellite that made distinct turns. I’ve watched a lot of drone videos and I do not believe this was a drone. It was definately not a plane/sat. I took pics and it seemed to be saucer shaped object with a dome on top.
I have multiple photographers of it changing color and accelerating across the sky. I was zoomed in with a telephoto lens in the attached pictures. I used Lightroom to try to darken or lighten the images to get a better look at the subject. It moved in a way that was extremely unconventional and at speeds and angles that in my opinion are impossible. As I was taking pictures of it it continued to move across the sky then hover in one place then move again. Changing direction multiple times and hovering multiple times. It was pulsating different colors. At some points it looked more round other times it looked more tear dropped in shape (as it was moving). Some pictures show what appears to be surface lights. This was not of human origin, and was under some type of intelligent control. It was extremely high in the sky but appeared to be within our atmosphere. Contact me for a more detailed description of the event and additional photos. Original uncorked photos are available.
January 1, 1970. It was New Year’s Day, 1970, but it was supposed to be a routine morning shift at Cowichan District Hospital. Nurse Doreen Kendall had started her shift at midnight and was due to get off work at 8 a.m. Not much of a way to greet the New Year, but it was her job.
Doreen, a practical nurse, worked on the second floor of the hospital at Duncan, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Doreen lived in Nanaimo and commuted the twenty-six miles to Duncan.
At 5 a.m. Doreen and nurse Frieda Wilson began their usual morning rounds in a four-bed ward. While Frieda attended to the patient nearest the door, Doreen checked on the patient in the next bed, nearest the window. As she did every morning, she went to open the drapes in order to let in a little of the early morning sunshine.
When she opened the drapes, she was amazed to see something totally unexpected. Outside, about sixty feet away, a flying object was hovering at a height of about sixty feet, even with the third floor of the hospital. The object was saucer-shaped, with a transparent bubble-like dome in the center, and was tilted slightly towards her.
Because the object was tilted toward her, Doreen could see inside the transparent dome, where she saw two humanoid figures standing in front of a chrome, dial-covered instrument panel.
She estimated the figures to be about six feet tall, wearing dark clothing, and some sort of headgear. There were seats in front of the instrument panel, but the figures were standing rather than seated.
Doreen was stunned. The Cowichan area had a reputation as a UFO “hotspot”, but she had never expected to see one herself.
As she watched, one of the men noticed her and touched the other, apparently to alert him of the fact that they were being watched. The other man looked up, and then manipulated a control, causing the object to begin to move.
At this point Doreen called to Frieda Wilson, who came to the window in time to see the object outside. The two then ran to the nurses station and told three other nurses, who reached the window in time to see the object, although it was some distance away by then. The object circled several times and then vanished to the northeast at high speed. The sighting was never explained. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
DATE: 1970 August-roughly-TIME: 3 am-WEATHER: clear, warm, windless, large full moonlight lit, starry night.
SIGHTING LOCATION: YUMA ARIZONA
So, this is what ‘THEY’ look like up close, and I bet nobody has ever seen them do this!
WITNESSES: 16 people…six adults, 10 young people ranging in ages from 49 to 10.
SHAPE_OF_OBJECTS: inverted ‘pie-pan’ metal saucers, which morphed into sparkling white orbs, then back into saucers again.
I will skip the details of my brother and my interest in science fiction….which led to us sitting in the front cab of our camper motor home, looking at the stars, as our convoy of relatives made a lengthy rest stop. The night was clear as bell. We were parked by a lone hill, on a rarely used back road, coming into Yuma Arizona. I say rarely used because, the whole hour we were there, no other cars happened past us. We were on the outskirts of the city, parked in the actual dirt road, beneath a tall telephone pole, on the earlier mentioned lone hill. Just a large bump of dirt really, that had missed getting leveled with the rest of the dirt road. I remember the full moon being so bright one could see far into the field across the road from us. In this same field, left of the drivers side of the camper, about 500 ft. away, I noticed a string of blue lights, lying parallel on the ground, and I thought we might be near an airfield landing strip. The lights were like small dark blue stars, the way a black light bulb looks these days.
There were two large oak trees in the vast field of yellow waving dry grass, close to the dirt road, about a 300 ft. away. The grass was not very tall, just like the dead, sun scorched grasses of any given field…about 5 ft. high. I am 5 ft. 7 inches tall, so the grass would be waist high to me, if I were out standing in it. I thought the blue lights were a landing strip, because they were that hot electric blue color, and there were about 18-20 of them, equally spaced apart in the field of dead grass, but there were no buildings, or farms, or anything for miles all around us, and NO AIRPORT! just the two huge oak trees, the twin strips of landing lights on the ground, the endless grass, and the black, diamond twinkling silhouette of the Yuma Arizona city skyline in the far distance. A thought crossed my mind for a quick second. Where was the source of electrical power for these lone lights, and who turns them off, and on in an empty field, in the middle of nowhere?
To the right hand side, lay the city’s brightly lit black skyline. It had to have been at least 10 miles away, but as the land was generally flat, we had a totally unobstructed view of it. Wondering why planes would want to land in the middle of an empty field, by an oak tree no less, we watched the supposed landing strip to pass the time, hoping to see an approaching plane coming in for a landing…. We looked away for just a moment, to ask for a snack plate through the adjoining camper service window. We hadn’t even looked away two minutes, when I noticed, a set of landing lights, one red, two white, and one greenish aqua, coming in low, just over the grass of the field, headed straight towards us! How could I have missed the sound of this approaching flight? I thought it was strange, they were airplane lights, but it was flying way too low, vertical to the horizontal landing light strip, and it was coming in painfully slow…too slow, like it was gliding or crashing? We didn’t no which, so we watched it for about 15 minutes. We wound down the window to listen if we could hear a motor in distress or something… Earlier, there had been crickets chirping, and all sorts of fresh night sounds, now there was nothing, just a deafening roar of silence.. No noise from the low flying plane either.. The plane could not have been one mile away from us, approaching, but it was taking it forever to get to us.
Agonizingly slow, so slow it appeared to be standing still, which might have been the case! When it finally reached the two oak trees, it flew between them, but not past them, and began to ascend, slowly, straight up through the lowest branches, and low and behold, another set of lights, exactly the same, rose up right underneath the first pair! I said, if I didn’t know any better, I would have sworn that, that second plane came straight out of the ground, or had been waiting on the ground for the first plane’s arrival… The spread of the planes’ wing-span was the length of maybe a commercial tour plane, or a crop duster, it was not that big, about as wide as 5 average cars parked head to tail lengthwise. Strange thing, these planes were still moving forward painfully SLOW…and flying just over the top of the grass…skimming it actually. When both planes reached the oak tree branches, the upper most one veered right, seemingly to purposely give the bottom set of lights room to move up. We then knew we would now get a better view of these two slow planes as they rose as high as the top leaves of the oak trees they passed, and they were STILL approaching us. My brother wanted to shine our blindingly bright camper spotlight on them…but I warned him not to…very unsure why, but I told myself, he might blind the pilots, but these planes were doing things no piloted earth planes could do, and maybe the light they might shine back at us might not be so good.
Maybe they were helicopters?
We thought this because they rose straight up in the air, and hovered there for minutes at a time, then they seemed to play with each other, turning, backing up, gyrating back and forth, like boats rocking on deep water, and flitting about, just like a humming bird can do. They seemed aware of each other’s slightest movement, like they were alive? Plane #1 was now just above the two trees in the field, #2 was just above the grass, in plain view, but darkly shadowed by the trees’ dense branches. They were both still facing us by the position of the landing lights, when plane #1 suddenly descended so quickly and violently atop #2, we knew they would crash together…. and crash they did, and there was absolutely NO NOISE. We saw them hit, wobble as if stunned, and just bounce off each other, continuing slowly, both ascending through the tree’s thick heavy branches. The branches bent, and gave way around them, but didn’t break. There was NO NOISE of leaves rustling, as this happened, and we were close enough to have heard that. By now they were just over the treetop’s leaves, moving into the brilliant full moonlight, as they silhouetted against the moon, just above the telephone pole on the one dirt hill, now, on our right hand side, we began screaming.
The planes were not planes!
They had no wings, no sound, and they were completely circular…Like two gigantus pie pans put together! To this day I believe they heard us scream, because up until then, they seemed only interested in each other, and totally unaware of our presence. They hovered mid-air, after the screams, then began to descend slowly, right on top of us!
They were close enough for us to view the full under side of the ships since they were no higher than the top of the telephone pole…lets see, pole plus hill… They were just about 50 ft. above us, and they gave an appearance of being as light as the air itself by how gently they floated down. They were huge solid metal objects reflecting in the moonlight, but they floated, and gyrated about like weightless spinning leaves in the warm windless night, and they were still descending. They were close enough for me to hit them, if I threw a rock, and I can’t throw worth a dime! They were bigger than our camper and they were going to land right on top of us! All our party heard us screaming, and stuck their heads out the camper door, and out their several car doors, and looking up, they started screaming too…
The saucer shaped circles were nickel colored, dull smooth steel on top with a raised flat darker top, and underneath an equally protruding flat black circular portioned bottom. No windows, seams, or doors were apparent. The colored landing lights, which had no rays, shone bright head on, but dully, when view from underneath!
They were low enough now to block out the moonlight, and they were 3x the size of our camper which was the largest vehicle, holding a family of seven! OH! They WERE going to land on top of us!!! Suddenly, in the den of our commotion, as if becoming aware of our terror, they stopped descending, just stopped in mid-air, whirling like fitted stationary gyroscopes. Flying side by side, the two saucers went up on their sides together, from a horizontal to a vertical position, in perfect synchronization, and now stood in the sky, a stones’ throw above us, like two huge pewter silver wheels. Suddenly an intensely bright light like a 4th of July sparkler started pushing out the middle of their dark bottom protrusions, while the same thing was happening simultaneously on the top protrusion, and all this met together around the rims length wise in a cohesive whole. They literally transformed from dull flat saucers into huge glowing orbs, right in front of, or right over our heads, about 25 ft. up, or closer, since I could hit them with a rock if I had had the nerve to throw one! no sparks dropped, or heat or noise was apparent. no smell of smoke or exhausts. This took only a matter of seconds to happen, and the minute the transformation was complete, both balls of light shot off like white hot meteors, in the direction of the Yuma city skyline… It took less than a minute for them to reach the city, where they hovered up and down just above it, looking for all the world like bouncing stars, glittering blue, then white, then red then green.
They flew all along the top of the city, then they started back toward us! Food, supplies, and people flew everywhere. Getting in our perspective vehicles, and gunning the motors, we went from 0 to 90 in six minutes flat, raising a cloud of dust so thick we could barely see through it! Looking out our windows, and up, we could see the objects were back, and following us from the sky. They were now as high as any commercial plane, and looked like two planes from up there, but they were still flying in sync, and turning on a dime up there! They had their row of landing lights back on, and they were saucers again, but this time the lights were flashing like a real plane would do. They followed us (chased?) to the edge of the cities’ outskirts where we slowed down, feeling safe enough to park, and watch them veer off, and up, back in the general direction from which we had just come! So you see, I know UFOs can transform shapes, and saw how they did it… I got the distinct impression they were as curious about us, as we were as scared of them.
They seemed playful, if a machine could have a personality, like one kitten would play with another. I think they thought our camper and cars were worth looking at. until we popped out of them….like fleas or a virus, I suppose! Just an impression I got! Indulge me! We saw many, many more types after that, a few up very close, but not quite as personal! I continue to watch the skies. I am 52 years old now, and I have had enough UFO experiences to last a lifetime. They keep happening though! I believe they still frequent Arizona, and various parts of Mexico, they got us there too! I have seen them actually disappear right while I was watching, so I know they can do that as well. I have to add, I thought they only frequent the rural areas, I was wrong, a couple of good city experiences took care of that! I tell this story to whomever wants to hear it. It never gets dull for me…this was before video cameras, and for some reason I am glad no one thought to use one of our, then, antiquated cameras with a flashbulb. geesh! I will consider writing some more of my UFO experiences soon. I see there is more of an interest now than when I was coming up. I was 19 or 20 when this happened to my family while traveling across the USA from California, to Mississippi. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
As a result of some local publicity in May and June of 1998, we were informed that a photograph of several UFOs near Tagish Lake was taken some years back.
In July of 1998 an investigation led to the identification of the secondhand witness who was in possession of a slide duplicate of the image.
A copy of the slide was made, a preliminary analysis performed, the witness was interviewed and results are presented in this report.
We know that there was a total of seven objects from witness testimony. This is important since object 7 (the smallest object) is almost indistinguishable from bright reflections off the mountain rocks.
Sighting Description and Story Background
Two couples were doing some recreational boating on Tagish Lake in 1970 (approx.). Tagish Lake is a large glacial lake about 100km(60 miles) south of Whitehorse, the Territory’s capital. The two couples were travelling in two separate boats.
To respect their anonymity, we will simply refer to the two men involved in this story by their first names, Jim and George. George was in his early 50’s and Jim was in his mid 60’s around that time. Note: since the writing of this report, Jim’s surviving daughter has been contacted. She has given her permission to disclose his identity.
It was about 10 am when they were travelling southbound on the lake. It was windy and the water was a bit on the rough side. Jim’s boat was smaller than George’s and also had an open top. George and his wife where driving in a closed and larger boat. Because Jim had a smaller boat and wanted to stay out of the roughest water, he was travelling close to the shoreline while George and his wife could afford to travel out in the middle of the lake and were about 5 to 8 kilometres back.
While travelling along the edge of the lake, Jim and his wife saw seven strange glowing orbs as shown in the photograph (Figure 1). There are four closer objects and three more further up the mountainside. Jim estimated that they were 3 to 4 feet in diameter. They moved about slowly for the estimated 15 minutes that they watched them as he and his wife traveled down the lake.
The four closer objects eventually made their way up the mountain to join the other objects. George was too far back to notice the objects and didn’t even have sight of Jim’s boat.
His concentration was devoted to the rough water. Jim or his wife never mentioned anything to George until the film was developed, about a week later. We can speculate that this may have been because of the fear of ridicule or disbelief. That is until Jim had the slide in hand.
As far as George knows this was the only photo of the objects that Jim took.
Jim used slide film and made a couple of slide duplicates for George. George submitted one to the Weather Office who submitted it the Department of National Defence in Ottawa.
About a year later George was curious to find out what the department found from their analysis so he asked the person at the Weather Office to look into it. The answer he got back was that that information was classified.
The testimony of the secondhand witness George sounded very sincere. George was curious about what Jim saw and photographed and added that neither him nor Jim have or have had a big interest in the UFO phenomenon.
There was no apparent reason for Jim to make up the story or to fake the photograph. Jim’s story which was related by George sounded sincere and the two were close friends. Jim was the Chief Grain Inspector of Canada around that time and therefore it is unlikely he would have risked his credibility by perpetuating a hoax.
One question which often comes up is “Why is there only one photo of the objects when Jim observed them for 15 minutes?” Of course there may have been more photos that we are not aware of but as far as George knows, Jim only had the one image.
However, during the September 1998 field trip, one possible explanation for the one photo theory came to mind. As I was holding up the UFO photo in front of me, looking at the scene, and simultaneously trying to steer the outboard motor to get into Jim’s position, one thing very quickly became apparent. When I imagined what the real scene must of looked like, it almost sent chills down my spine.
Although, UFO#1 looks only like a dot in the photograph, UFO#1 would of looked ” DAM CLOSE ! ” in real life. If Jim wanted to at the time he could of driven the boat towards the UFO and been underneath it in less than 30 seconds and taken more photographs at very close range.
Surrounded by ice cold water it wouldn’t surprise me if he would have chosen to do just the opposite; that is, take one quick photo and continue to drive down the lake while keeping a somewhat fearful and very watchful eye on the objects
The prints were scanned using a UMAX 1220S Scanner ranging from 150 to 1200 dpi. To reduce download times, the images on this web site are not the full resolution scans.
On Thursday Oct 15, 2020 at 7:29pm, it was a moonless night with light winds but latter they picked up. I recorded many craft flying over Area 51, with my Canon T6. I use long time exposures (13 seconds) (95/300mm) and occasionally video since this camera has a 300 mm zoom. I am unsure but I think I zoomed into 300 mm to get the video shot and than focused it better. I suspect the 8 craft I caught flying over Area 51 were drones. I also have images of them. I saw a stationary object that appeared to be a drone coming down(digital image 531) and than hoovering(Video 0532). I then went from long time exposures to Video and recorded this UFO for about 2 minutes and 15 seconds. At the 2 minute mark it turned off its lights and never came back. This video shows the craft hovering, although it some times appears its two crafts.
From the Black Mail box looking straight ahead om a SW direction, its over Area 51. I also witnessed two white explosions behind the Area 51 mountain range, no sound was heard. It doesn’t appear I have caught them on my files. I stayed a little bit longer, but the wind picked up. The exercises stopped or paused at Area 51 and it was impossible to get a good steady shot in complete darkness 14 miles away. A late model Chevy car pulled up to Black Mail Box, after I was just about done. I waited for the person to get out but they never did. I left and went home early that night, you just can’t shoot any thing reliable under those conditions. It seemed like Area 51 closed down when the high winds came in. I also reestablished the Black Mail Box back in June 2019, so far its still there. I drive 240 miles round trip every other week to catch a glimpse of what’s going on out there.
May 1, 2020; 7:00 PM Case 111613: Laura [last name withheld] was photographing the sunset near Zumarraga, Spain. Zumarraga is 15 miles south of the Bay of Biscay and 25 miles southwest of San Sabastián, a port town in northern Spain. Laura was more than one mile away from the mountain shown in the photos below. She claims that a white object, at approximately 10° above the horizon, approached the mountain (apparently from the left in the photo) and then descended. The object proceeded to land on the mountaintop and then disappeared.
According to her Case Management System report, she observed the object for “4 hours.” However, this was more likely due to a misunderstanding, and one might reasonably assume that she meant “4 minutes.” Laura took two photographs of the object: one as the object approached the mountain and a second photo after the object landed. The object was silent throughout the event.
I have a rather extensive aviation background . I flew model airplanes as a kid and took flying lessons when I was 16 . I soloed in a C-152 @ 5.7 hrs . When I was 24 I was offered a job flying for PanAm . I also received my A/C mechanics license . It was in July , 1990 , I was driving home , heading for the ranch I worked on , driving east , the sun was at my back , it was very late afternoon . Suddenly , at about the 1 o”clock position , there was a UFO , just hovering . It was about 500 above the ground , less than a 1/2 mile ahead of me . It just hovered there , with a red light glowing on top . The light was enclosed in a very clear type of glass enclosure that was dome shaped on top . The light didn’t rotate or blink on and off , It remained steadily on . It did something rather peculiar , that no one has ever stated before . Six yrs later I moved to Roswell NM , visited the UFO museum several times and asked if they could direct me to speak to someone about my sighting . They gave me nothing to help . So I have continued searching , until now . I currently reside in the N Dallas area of Richardson . If someone wishes to interview me , I will be glad to cooperate . Regards.

On September 20, 2020, first noticed it around 8;30pm and it looked like a large colorful flashing star-like light from the distance. We (family and a few neighbors) thought it could be a plane but it didn’t appear to be moving. A 42x zoom with a camera revealed it was a Saturn-like rotating object flashing many colors. The body and small dots (in a ring-shape) rotating around it were consistently changing colors. The colors were flashing in a pattern that kept on changing.
For example one of the sequential patterns it kept flashing was green, red, blue, yellow, purple, cyan, and white (many times in a row) and another pattern that it flashed was black and white. Will be attaching a video as well. It never emitted any noise, nor did it make any sudden movements. Over the 2 hour span, we watched the light, we soon realized it was slowly moving away and lowering to the horizon and we soon lost it behind the trees and never saw it again.

In 1997 My parents and my brother go on a vacation together. I had the option to go or stay home..I chose to stay home. So they leave and that night was when my abduction took place. I come that night around 11pm from playing basketball with my friends. I take a shower and go to my room to watch some TV. I hop in bed and I’m sitting up with my back against the headboard. Before I even had a chance to turn my TV on my bed began to vibrate. After a few seconds of that it started shaking and eventually it was jumping around so much at times only one foot of my bed would be on the ground at a time. This whole experience was about 30 seconds long then it just stopped. It freaked me out but I assumed it was something paranormal at the time even though I didn’t believe in that stuff at this point of my life. So after it stopped I would say 10 seconds later I get the most intense feeling telling me to look at my window. I turn my head so fast and there was two aliens standing on the roof of my 1st floor patio looking into my second floor window. They were probably 6′-7′ from me.
One was taller than the other. Proportion wise I would have to say the one on the left looked female because it was shorter and more slender than the one on the right. I didn’t get the best look at the second smaller one because when I made eye contact with the first taller one I froze and experienced tunnel vision as I looked into its eyes. I feel like my heart and my breath stopped for a few seconds, I don’t think I blinked. They looked similar to what people describe as greys but the ones I seen had a brownish color to it. After I stare into this aliens eyes for about 20 second I get another strong feeling to look to the right at the bottom of my door, and I did. I noticed the shadows of two pairs of legs step forward to the outside of my bedroom door. my hallway light was on an the bottom of my door had a large gap so the shadows were projected onto my bedroom floor. At this point I already knew what was going on. To be honest I kinda knew the second I seen part of one of their eyes. So after the two stepped to my door I freaked out and pulled my blanket over my whole body and laid in the fetal position. I did not want them to touch me, that was my biggest concern. I laid under my blanket for maybe 15 seconds waiting to feel them grab me. Then one second later I’m waking up the next morning face down on my couch with my legs hanging off and my shorts on backwards. I was in a total daze. I remember all I wanted to do was take a shower. So in the shower I had some soap run down my back and I jumped in pain. I had a huge oval scab at the lowest point on my back that was 100% not there the night before. It burned so much.
17 yrs after this event I was looking for information on abductions and came across a blog from someone saying they think they were abducted, woke up the next morning, took a shower and found a scab on her lower back and has a scar from it. I didn’t even know I had a scar there until this point and I still have it. One week later I seen a ufo for the first time. It looked like a star in the sky. I thought I was watching a shooting star until it came to a complete stop at the center of the sky. It just sat there. Then out of know where It shot across the other half of the sky in a blink of the eye. So 3 yrs later I see a full figured ghost 2 feet right in front of me and I told him about it and show me a picture of his aunt who hung herself in that same house many years ago. She was the ghost I seen. Sadly that same friend took his My girlfriend at the time was on her hands and knees to my right freaking out but cant hear her. As soon as the can of soda emptied I was able to move and here. This was 2am-ish in the morning. She said she seen 3 kids walk by the window while I was paralized. I did not see this. 2012 I come home from work and I see a shadow person standing over my bed with its arms stretched out. When it noticed me it got startled and jumped onto the wall like a shadow and ran towards me along the second floor hallway wall and turned the corner and went down the wall down the steps. It also made a weird mechanical sound too. 2019 I wake up to a drop of water hitting me between my nose and upper lip.
I inspected my sealing and it was bone dry. It happened 3 nights in a row. I moved my bed to the other side of the room. It happened 2 more night then never happened again. So 2 months ago I shared my story for the first time with anyone on someone you tube channel who does interviews. Before this time I was suffering from PTSD. I couldn’t sleep, or keep a job or a relationship. I was a mess. Talking to this person made me feel good and not so afraid. So I did 2 more on two different channels. Its been therapy for me. These people are now my friends and I’m part of a tiny ufo community now. So since I’ve been free of fear I feel like a new person and I’m eager to seek the truth about what’s going on with me. I purchase 2 security cams with night vision to recon me while I sleep to see if I can get an abduction on camera. I know that’s not how it works but I’m trying. Anyway I started noticing I was recording orbs, I have a month of amazing footage. The main reason I’m contacting you is because 0n 10/01/2020 in the morning I have video footage and still pics of what looks to be orbs shape shifting into aliens than back to orbs. These pictures are pretty clear and I think I have compelling evidence. Something is going on right now! NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In 1971, I had a close encounter that was later explained to me was a “Close Encounter of The Second Kind”. My understanding is that a sighting in the sky is an encounter of the first kind, an encounter where the craft has touched down within close range is the second kind and an encounter where there is physical contact is the third kind, such as the movie years ago.
Many years prior to the movie, I was on my way home after getting off duty from the Naval Station at Miramar, which is now a Marine Corp Air Station, in San Diego. The year is 1971, it is about 3:00 a.m. there is no traffic and I am headed down interstate 15 and my car is running on gas fumes.
About 5 miles from my destination, the vehicle suddenly shuts off and I coast over to the side of the road. I am thinking I am out of gas and would have to walk the rest of the way into the next suburb of Kearny Mesa. I get out of the car and there is no traffic and it is very dark with only a little moonlight. I get a 5 gallon red military issue gas can out of the trunk and stand there trying to figure out what to do. I was flat broke and it was still a week before payday. As I look North and South on the Interstate, not a soul can be seen…….A craft silently lands
Still looking South as I stand there by the driver side of the door, I hear a release of air as if it is coming from a high pressure nozzle, and I hear gravel crunching like something heavy is pressing it down. I look across the Interstate which in 1971 was only four lanes and see an object of some type that is long, low and extremely streamlined and silohutted.
I keep looking because I was wondering how something could be there when it was not there when I got out of the car and as dark as it was, I never saw any lights or heard any other car engines.
At this time, I was still thinking I was looking at an extremely long car kind of like a limousine, but it was much longer. There was total silence and no movement from the vehicle or on the Interstate.
Panic took over when I saw that the vehicle was sitting flush on the ground and their were no tires, plus, I could see that it had opaque silver type windows that were paneled, but no other things like door handles or anything that could make it a car.
My mind starting putting together the fact that this was no car and the noise I heard earlier was the craft settling down about 40 yards across the Interstate from me.
I was scared to death at this point, and jumped into the car. The only thing I could think of was getting out of there before something came out of the craft.
Even though I thought the car would not start, I turned the key and it started and I put it into gear and took off.
When I got home, my family got scared because I was in tears and really scared. They had never seen me in this shape before and it frightened them. I told them what I had seen and they believed me, because they knew I was too terrified to make it up.
Return to the scene
The following morning, I went to my neighbor’s house and asked him to go back with me. We tried the car, but it would not start, it was out of gas. We borrowed money from other neighbors and went back to where the incident occurred. We only saw a slight indentation in the gravel where something had been.
I was traumatized by the event and had trouble sleeping for a long time after that. I still cannot sleep with my back to a door. When it first happened, I was so shook up, that I talked to doctors who recommended that I undergo hypnosis to digress to the night of the incident.
They kept asking me exactly how long was I there that night and to me it only seemed like a few minutes from start to finish. Others say that I could have been there longer and just do not know it and may have seen more than what I thought.
I never underwent the hypnosis, because I do not want to know anymore than what I already know. I know what I saw that night and it will haunt me the rest of my life.
Blemish appears on lower calf
Later that year, a blemish appeared on the left inside of my lower calf above the ankle. It is about the size of a dime and it has never gone away. Right in the center is a little black dot surrounded by a lighter tan circle. I thought it was some type of skin cancer and went in for a check up, the doctors say no, they have no idea what it is other than a blemish and not to be concerned.
Well, I am concerned because I do not know really how long I was there and what happened from the time I stopped to the time I left. I could be from the encounter, but I have no idea.
I have seen objects from time to time since then, but they have been in the sky and usually others report them. I have not ever had another close encounter and really do not want to.
Thanks for listening, it is good to vent that story from time to time. I just look forward to the day when all of us can be validated when a sighting beyond comparison will take place and it cannot be disputed.
The craft was a grayish type color and very smooth in appearance. The shape was very aerodynamic with the length being about 18-20 ft. The height was about 6ft. from the bottom of the craft to the top of the slightly dome-shaped top in the center of the craft.
There was also what looked like some type of windows or pane devices that were very dark, like a really dark tint on a car or presidential vehicle, but it was not glass, it was some other type of alloy.
Although the vehicle looked really light in weight, it had to be heavy, because it made the gravel crunch as it settled on the shoulder on the side of the roadway.
I was standing by the 1968 Plymouth Fury, light blue, on the southside of the interstate, looking across the interstate to the east, that is the direction I heard the escaping rush of air and heard the gravel crunching.
UCSD has an observatory of some type now in the area near the sighting. At the time I was there in 1971, a red & white checkered water tank was in the field close by the interstate. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Purplish, orange sunrise, metallic taste in mouth , travel timing. & the grayish ufo that’ll be imprinted in my mind forever!
Want to report this sighting that occurred last night in December the 26th, 2019. We (me and my 11 year old son) was walking to the Walgreens nearest to our home when suddenly out of nowhere I felt that of a strange headache along with a metallic state to my mouth. It struck me extremely odd when my son said to me suddenly, moments after I began feeling the symptoms, that his mouth tasted as if he had a penny in his mouth! As my son said this he placed both his hands over his head, clearly a sign that he, as well, was feeling that of the same symptoms as me! This was at night however , for that of a split second the lighting of the sky appeared that of an orange/purplish light color … resembling that of a sunrise! We both exchanged a nonverbal look, a look that gave me a chill up my spine, as it had confirmed to me that indeed, my son as well had seen the same strange phenomenon. It is then that my son looked up & his eyes widened so large it frightened me!
My son pulled, rather tugged me inside the Walgreens and had stated to me that he had seen that of a wide large light greyish object that was not to far above from us… only a few feet up above the Walgreens. At this point in time I did not see what he had just described, just te sky within a split of a second turning into that of a sunrise color. I calmed him down while we was in the Walgreens photo section and reassured him that due to the sky turning a different color, perhaps as it subsided he thought he had seen what he just described. When we got home, I went to the back last room of our house, which is one of my eldest son’s room. To my utter shock and disbelief, the metallic taste in my mouth along with the headache, which I had experienced along with my son and had left once we saw that ‘strange sunrise’ just a mere 20 to 30 minutes earlier by the Walgreens. I was in quite a stage of shock! Due to the notion that my son has 3 windows parallel to one another, I quickly gave a fast glimpse, expecting to see that ‘strange sunrise’ , if you will… except, this time, i had witnessed was definitely out of this world! A long, grey rectangle.. or should I say ship looking object slowly past the 2 front windows first … in that of a slow motion, making a left to the 3rd window! I quickly looked at my son’s closet mirror, which allows me to see 2 of the windows of his room to see if what i had just seen was there or what in the world was going on?! Next thing I know I was awakened by my son asking me if my migraine (I am a chronic migraine sufferer) has subsided …. I quickly jumped up from the bed and just couldn’t believe what was happening! It was as if one minute I was staring into the mirror and the next being awakened, mind you, tucked in, in my son’s bed! NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I am an educator at a boarding school in Princeton, NJ. I was scheduled to interview prospective students by skype from China so I was driving to campus at about 5:30 am on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020 when I noticed a strange object in a jet black pre-dawn sky. At first I thought it was clouds partially covering the moon, but the object was far too big for that. I realized quickly that it looked like a huge floating platform just hovering in the sky above a large shopping center near my house. It was black and solid, blacker than the dark winter sky, with white, and the occasional red and green lights irregularly placed around it so it looked strange and caught my eye. Since it was off at an angle and above me, it wasn’t clear if it was a rectangle shape or a triangle. It looked like a gigantic sound platform like you see at concerts but much bigger than that, hanging silently in the air. As I drove down the road with the object hovering to my left, I could ! see that it was ridiculously huge hanging there, dwarfing the large shopping center below it. As soon as I could, I pulled off the road, rolling my window down to hear any sounds. I couldn’t calculate how high it was in the sky, but I’d say it was somewhere between where a helicopter would fly but well above the top of the shopping center. It was much bigger than the center and had no sound. I stared at it for 10 minutes trying to figure out what it was. I’ve never seen anything like it. Finally, it silently drifted off beyond the tree line and I drove off to work so I wouldn’t be late for my calls.
The next day I googled to see if anyone else had reported this. No one had, but there were 2 reports from the previous year of having seen a large triangle like that with similar lights in nearby towns at night. When I looked for images on google, the black triangle looked closest to what I saw from the ground.
I’m sure I saw something huge and unusual early that morning. I still can’t get it out of my head. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I have been researching the surface of Mars for many years. Special thanks to the Mars Curiosity Rover for the hi-definition images. Nasa seems to have many web sites and trying to find that one web site with these incredible images is the hard part. It may take a few hours to properly scan each photo but its worth it. Most times I feel like an explorer who is the very first person to see these landscapes. Below is a small collection of my discoveries on this Planet Mars.
A Mars solar day has a mean period of 24 hours 39 minutes 35.244 seconds, and is customarily referred to as a “sol” in order to distinguish this from the roughly 3% shorter solar day on Earth
Hi, I am not one to report unless I am sure. But what we saw at Long Beach island at 2 am was not something we doubt as something not in our comprehension.
My friend and I decided to take a walk on the beach at around 1:30 am after a long night of talking and catching up after about 20 minutes we noticed three bright lights on the sand, we thought they were police checking the area for trespassers. So we didn’t think much of it. We then noticed two of the light sources started to create a line between each other… it looked like a beam interchanged between two sources. Fast forward, these lights disappeared we figure it was some kind of weird glitch in some security light. We then notice a light that looked into the ocean. It was white shining very bright. We noticed a smaller green light flying over it... moving very fast all over the place. I mean like very disoriented.. nothing we have every seen before. I was a believer and the first thing I thought was aliens and I thought my friend would think I was absolutely crazy by my idea but when we both saw we looked at each other. The look on my friends face was shocking he was! absolutely startled… I was too. We both saw the same thing. These light forces moving ramp idly with no pattern or direction.. around the light source. At one point it seemed to dive into the ocean and back out. It would shine bright.. move and then disappear and appear again. It would make sudden movements and we would both look at each other. It would then stop and align with the bigger “light source” and then move about again. We watched it for about 40 minutes. I shined my light at it (blinked twice) and it disappeared… then shined back twice. And disappeared and we got to scared and walked away. We both realized this was an experience we will remember forever. We thought hard about what we might have seen but there just doesn’t seem to be any explanation to a light moving that rapidly and that unorganized like it did. We both knew what we saw but it seems unreal right now. I’m writing this because My friend and I truly believe we saw something out of the ordinary tonight. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
On May 23, 1971 at about 12:30 P M, one of the most convincing photographs of a UFO was taken by one Rudi Nagora, a Munich musician. Nagora, along with his wife, were vacationing near St. Lorenzen, Styria, Austria.
After finding a suitable place to park his car, Nagora left his wife inside the vehicle while he scouted the general area before the two of them ventured out.
Suddenly, he heard a “whizzing” sound coming from above.
Looking up, he could clearly see a shining, silver disc which was between him and the cloud plane.
The object was moving in a zig-zag pattern. He ran back to his car, told his wife what he had seen, and grabbed his camera.
Pointing his Agfa-Click camera at the object, he took a full roll of 12 exposures, capturing several stunning images. Now out of film, Nagora could see the object come even closer, and then shoot straight up, disappearing through the clouds.
After the approximately 5 minute sighting and film taking session, Nagora took his film back to Munich.
UFO researcher Engineer Adolf Geigenthaler heard about the photographs, and began an investigation into the sighting. After careful examination, Nagoras photos were deemed legitimate by several reliable experts. The photos have never been debunked, and still testify today that we are not alone.
The story begins in 1973, when Robert Emenegger and Alan Sandler, two well-connected Los Angeles businessmen, were invited to Norton Air Force Base in California to discuss a possible documentary film on advanced research projects.
Two military officials, one the base’s head of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the other, the audio-visual director Paul Shartle, discussed a number of projects. One of them involved UFOs. This one sounded the most interesting and plans were launched to go ahead with a film on the subject.
Emenegger and Sandler were told of a film taken at Holloman AFB, New Mexico, in May 1971. In October 1988, in a national television broadcast, Shartle would declare that he had seen the 16mm film showing “three disc-shaped craft. One of the craft landed and two of them went away.”
A door opened on the landed vehicle and three beings emerged. Shartle said, “They were human-size. They had an odd, gray complexion and a pronounced nose.
They wore tight fitting jump suits, [and] thin headdresses that appeared to be communication devices, and in their hands they held a ‘translator.’
A Holloman base commander and other Air Force officers went out to meet them” (Howe, 1989).
Emenegger was led to believe he would be given the film for use in his documentary. He was even taken to Norton and shown the landing site and the building in which the spaceship had been stored and others (Buildings 383 and 1382) in which meetings between Air Force personnel and the aliens had been conducted over the next several days. According to his sources, the landing had taken place at 6 a.m.
The extraterrestrials were “doctors, professional types.” Their eyes had vertical slits like a cat’s and their mouths were thin and slit like, with no chins.” All that Emenegger was told of what occurred in the meetings was a single stray “fact”: that the military people said they were monitoring signals from an alien group with which they were unfamiliar, and did their ET guests know anything about them? The ETs said no.
Emenegger’s military sources said he would be given 3200 feet of film taken of the landing. At the last minute, however, permission was withdrawn, although Emenegger and Sandler were encouraged to describe the Holloman episode as something hypothetical, something that could happen or might happen in the future.
Emenegger went to Wright-Patterson AFB, where Project Blue Book had been located until its closing in 1969, to ask Col. George Weinbrenner one of his military contacts, what had happened.
According to Emenegger’s account, the exchange took place in Weinbrenner’s office. The colonel stood up, walked to a chalkboard and complained in a loud voice, “That damn MIG 25! Here we’re so public with everything we have. But the Soviets have all kinds of things we don’t know about. “We need to know more about the MIG 25!”
Moving to a bookshelf and continuing his monologue about the Russian jet fighter, he handed Emenegger a copy of J. Allen Hynek’s The UFO Experience (1972), with the author’s signature and dedication to Weinbrenner.
“It was like a scene from a Kafka play,” Emenegger would recall, inferring from the colonel’s odd behavior that he was confirming the reality of the film while making sure that no one overhearing the conversation realized that was what he was doing.
The documentary film UFO’s Past, Present & Future (Sandler Institutional Films, Inc.) was released in 1974 along with a paperback book of the same title. The Holloman incident is recounted in three pages (127-29) of the book’s “Future” section.
Elsewhere, in a section of photos and illustrations, is an artist’s conception of what one of the Holloman entities looked like, though it, along with other alien figures, is described only as being “based on eyewitness descriptions.” (Emenegger, 1974).
Emenegger’s association with the military and intelligence he had met while doing the film would continue for years.
Was going outside to grab something from my car when I noticed this object thought it was different from what I usually see, so I pulled my video camera out zoomed in and got a very fast spinning craft. I could see where the dome and the so called smooth sided wings met a black dot on the bottom of the craft. My first few videos got it in some kind of plasma looking orb around the entire craft and looked as if as it was spinning the air or some particles were spinning extremely fast around it then all of the sudden the globe went really small like it disappeared and I could see this craft come from it spinning so fast that it looked like it was on fire. It would jump around my screen for the next few hours the closer I got to the object my phones videos started to be taken over by some kind of swarming things that were moving In synchronization many many different colors. I have multiple videos of these things happening where you can clearly tell. Sometimes it would do complete loops or shoot to one side of the sky at high speed the stop and hover instantly only to go straight up and then every which direction. Also saw some beams of light come from this craft every time it stopped that looked like they were like waiving around. When it would move again they would retract. In one of my videos watching the craft we noticed that the small craft came up to a bigger red looking craft with rows of light which I have on video as well the bigger ship I could only see by the glare of the light from a smaller craft almost as it was invisible but the bigger craft was over my head and I hadn’t even noticed it it looked like the craft would point these beams in the direction it wanted to go then would instantly just be there in a matter of seconds I watched this until the sun was about to come up then it shot straight up into the sky and a green beam of light came from behind it and it was gone.
Only weeks earlier on the afternoon of 5th February at around 3 pm, in Kangaskyla Kinnula in Finland, yet another very similar incident would unfold involving a low-altitude UFO near woodland, no less. The account would appear in Flying Saucer Review courtesy of Tapani Kuningas.
The witnesses, P. Aliranta and E J Sneck, were working in the woodlands of the area when they noticed a bizarre metallic object “shaped like two saucers put together” which appeared to be descending in their direction. They would estimate the craft was around 15 feet across and was approximately 50 feet away.
Even more bizarre, as the two woodland workers watched from their location, a small being emerged from the object. They would estimate it was around three feet tall and appeared to “glide” as it moved as if it was on a conveyer belt. They could also see that the entity was dressed in a green garment from its feet to its head – upon which was a helmet with a “circular faceplate”.
Suddenly, the two witnesses realized that the strange being was moving in their direction. They also noticed several more entities looking out of the craft at the scene below. Aliranta would approach the entity, still with his saw in his hand.
Then, the being appeared to rise into the air. Instinctively, Aliranta would reach for its boot. However, as soon as he wrapped his grip around it he felt a burning sensation travel down his arm. He would later recall that it felt like “hot iron” and after regaining his senses, he let go immediately. The strange creature headed straight for the craft, which then took off straight upwards.
Intriguingly, and certainly, a detail shared with our other cases, the witnesses would find indentions on the ground. NOTE: the above image is CGI.
SEPTEMBER 27, 2020………BERRY HEAD BRIXHAM DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken : I was at Berry Head taking photographs of the area and I could see that another cruise ship had dropped anchor there at Torquay. There were now four cruise ships anchored there in total and the latest was the Holland America Westerdam cruise ship which I was very excited to photograph. I couldn’t wait to see just out of curiosity if I could capture any anomalous objects around this particular ship. I then noticed that there was a small Navy vessel in the area not far from the cruise ships. Could it be that the navy vessel was there to monitor the area for this kind of anomalous activity. I had never seen this Navy vessel in this area before and it just struck me as being odd what with all the recent UFO / USO activity around there.
Was it just a coincidence or was it something else. I took some photographs of the Navy vessel and then turned my attention back to the Westerdam cruise ship. I took a lot of photographs of the Westerdam cruise ship using my Nikon P900 camera and at first I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. I was just about to turn my attention to another vessel when an object flew up from behind the cruise ship and then hovered directly above the main deck of the ship before it shot off vertically into the sky and disappeared from view. I could hardly believe what I had just witnessed. The speed of the object was phenomenal. How was it possible for this object to go from a hovering state to such a breakneck speed like that instantaneously? There was no visible signs of propulsion which was very puzzling. The G forces within this object must of been immense. It really is beyond my understanding of how this could be achieved. It was just sheer luck that the object had hovered there stationery for a short moment allowing me just enough time to capture it in a photograph. Yet again I had photographed another anomalous object just off the coast of Torquay near a cruise ship. What the hell is going on here in this area? This sudden spike in activity is truly bizarre and so is the presence of a Navy vessel in the vicinity. The photograph was taken at 4:44 PM on the 27th of September 2020, from Berry Head Brixham Devon England. Have a great week my friend all the best John.
A small mushroom-shaped craft crashed close to Edwards AFB. It was dull gray (gun-metal) in color with greenish lights, about 3-3, 5 m in diameter and 1.5-2m in height. 3 gray humanoids, including one that was still alive and a human female abductee (Lorraine Dvorak Cordini) were found onboard.
The craft, bodies and survivors were moved to Edwards AFB. The witness Debbie Clayton reported that she heard a loud roaring sound and then a loud crash. Outside she could see a cloud of dust several blocks away. She walked over to the crash site and while other civilians were studying the craft, the military arrived, weapons drawn.
One of the civilians had been taken photographs and an Air Force officer ripped the camera from his hands and smashed it but didn’t try to remove the film. The craft had no markings but seemed to be scratched.
There were no windows or seams, and it appeared to be molded in one piece. The texture was smooth. The military told the witnesses to leave or be arrested. The military then covered the craft with a large canvas and lifted it with cables attached to the canvas.
Once it was loaded, the military left and there was no mention of the incident in the newspapers. The cause of the crash was later established to have been a technical malfunction.
Lorraine Dvorak Cordini later was able to remember (despite the fact that the military attempted to erase her memory with the use of drugs, hypnosis, etc) that she had been traveling onboard the UFO from a mothership in space. She was dressed in a tight-fitting pink body suit. Three extraterrestrial crewmen were returning her to Earth in a small pod-like craft.
Lorraine soon found herself standing amid the wreckage. One dead alien was far to her left, barely visible from where she stood, another dead alien was about 20 feet in front of her. A military person was apparently kicking the alien’s dead body. The third alien crewmember was alive and standing about 20 feet from her, dazed, confused and disoriented. She too felt this way.
Suddenly she felt a jerk as a military person grabbed her arms, brought them around her back and handcuffed her. As they were hauling her off she received an image in her mind of the “captain” onboard the mothership. It was a tall, 6′ humanoid in a long white gown, short brown hair, female, which was communicating to Lorraine how sorry she was for not being able to help her and the other aliens, for if they did they would be detected.
Her sorrow was apparent. Other aliens were around her and the same feelings of helplessness and frustration were felt. The other aliens resembled small gray humanoids (similar to the ones seen in the movie “Close Encounters”). Lorraine was then thrown into the backseat of a black limousine. Her next memory was what surfaced in the hypnosis session.
Lorraine was lying on a cold metal table in a hangar. Three military persons stood to the left of the table. One may have been an officer because he had a different cap than the fatigue uniforms of the other two persons. Another uniformed military man was at Lorraine’s head and to the right and to his left was an alien whom Lorraine described as having a pumpkin-shaped head.
He had appeared in a childhood experience that previously surfaced during the same hypnosis session. In the childhood experience he was in a spacesuit… Lorraine’s child’s mind saw him dangling outside the window in a deep sea diver’s suit. This alien was about 4 ft tall, his body bulbous and brown.
His head bulbous and pumpkin like. Lorraine “heard” the alien thinking how great he felt about himself and how proud he was to be in the service of the earth military men… he had a smug attitude and the military man next to him showed contempt towards the alien.
She was very confused and disoriented. Her next memory was of being yanked off the table and being dragged outside the hangar. There she saw many flashing red lights and screamed, “My God, that isn’t a space ship that is the police, my God it is the police.” The military men then sat her on a bus and she ended up in San Francisco stranded and lost. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On August 2, 2015 at 9:10 p.m., I was the first to observe the object while I was walking my dog. When I saw the luminous object passing slowly at about 30 km / h from my perspective at a height of about 1000 to 1500 feet, from south east to north west just above my head. I was very impressed and did not understand what this object could be. He was heading towards the lake in the northwest. At the same time, I called my wife on the cell phone to tell her to go outside immediately and see if she saw the object I was seeing. Our house is about 800 meters from where I was. My wife then went out onto our patio and she tried to follow him, she stopped near our house on the way to Lac St-Louis and filmed what she saw. So we have a video of this object. In the video, we see the object of a spherical shape that changes color and emits irregular shapes in halos of colors such as blue green red purple and white. By changing, this object regularly returns to a very particular shape, this shape looks like a translucent luminous sphere of white light, we can see in the center a small more solid white sphere with a sign of ” + ” more defined with more to the outside a more blackened area and after four light points which if we connected them could form a perfect square. The four rounded dots actually seemed to help form the base of a sphere with the halo that the object produced. After a few minutes of observation filmed almost stationary, the object disappeared.
I went to my neighbor’s house to go for a ride through the neighborhood and prior to going to her house. I had seen some bright lights in the sky probably 3 to 4. When I got to her house I started videotaping in her driveway and we seen it on the video and I got our of the car and it disappeared into the clouds but then I seen a red orb going through the neighborhood it was flying low or moving at a fast rate and acting as if it was trying to play hide-and-seek. The other vehicle that we were filming was right in front of me and then it disappeared into the clouds. In the video you can see lots of other lights in the sky. If you zoom into them they look like they can be aircraft’s of some sort. There’s also some misty looking stuff off to the right in the photos we have been seen a lot in our neighborhood these last couple months but this night really scared me as I felt like after I got home I was being followed or watched.
(Note: I was able to contact the gentleman who made this report. I asked him several questions about his account that I needed cleared up for my own curiosity, and the veracity of the report itself. One question concerned his employment dates, which he very quickly cleared up. Secondly, I asked him about what mission was being broadcast as he watched the UFOs on the TV screen. I had thought it must be Apollo 15, and he verified this for me also. I would also like to thank Eileen Nesbitt for her invaluable assistance in gathering information on this very important report.) Billy Booth
When I first started working for NASA, its initials, not the name, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, was how it was referred to. NASA is with whom I began employment in 1958 as a security guard on Wayside in Houston, Texas. They hadn’t even started building Manned Spacecraft Center at Webster yet, which would later be called MSC at Clear Lake. In 1961, I transferred to the Fire Department at the fledgling MSC and started training as a Fire and Safety Technician. The contractor responsible for Fire and Safety was Houston Fire and Safety. They held the contract for five years, losing out to Wackenhut Corporation out of Coral Gables Florida in 1966 because Wackenhut incorporated all phases of fire, safety and security under one blanket contract. Some say that George Wackenhut had first, Kennedy’s, then Johnson’s ear, but I haven’t seen proof of it. Everybody who hired in as a Fire Fighter was cross-trained in almost every aspect of maintenance operations.
I attended numerous schools on fire alarm systems, pump repair, electrical and mechanical maintenance, physical plant operations, and last and certainly not the least, fire, safety and security. We were told that we had to pass a very rigid security clearance investigation, and that our job would be forfeit if we did no pass. I passed with flying colors and kept my job. There were several who did not pass, and we were never told why they had been laid off. When I started, there were approximately three hundred eighty men who were attached to the fire department there at MSC. I saw a lot of men come and go during my twenty-six years of employment, but I never saw anyone who was willing to speak out about the rigid security. Even in later years, I kept in touch with several of my closest friends, when conversations turned to anything we were told not to talk about, there was always someone there to remind us that we had been told not to discuss it, even after we were no longer there. I saw things, and heard statements from Astronauts that I didn’t discuss, even with my wife or family. It was like a gigantic trust handed us and we honored it.
To this day, I don’t talk about everything I heard when I was around the Astronauts, at least not in detail. There were several incidents that occurred during my tenure as an employee and to several of the Fire Fighters that got all of us thinking about how our government wasn’t telling all they knew. For instance, in Building #1 on Johnson Space center, which was Building #2 when I first started work there, most of the north center of the second floor was the “crypto” room. We didn’t know what went on in the room, but we did know that we weren’t allowed in the room under normal circumstances. However, when an alarm came in at the Fire Station, we responded to the floor of the building that showed up on the enunciator panel at the station, One time, around 1964, we responded to Bldg.#2 to find that the alarm originated from the “crypto” room. However, the doors were open and we just walked in to check the minor panel located there.
The whole east wall was covered with photos of UFOs. As we finished up, the officer of that room came back in and found us there. He actually pulled his sidearm and pointed it at us before demanding to know why we had entered that room. He eventually accepted our explanation, but it took Everette D. Shafer*, head of NASA Security to vouch for us before the man would shut off his threats towards us. Everette Shafer reminded him, that had the armed officer been there in the room with the door locked, the incident could have been avoided. No, that was one very unhappy officer. I think he was Air Force, but I could be wrong; he was a Captain, I do remember that. When I came back from the Cape in 1968, we had another incident in the very same room, and the same officer was there also. Apollo 15 Landing Site Hadley Rille/Apennine Mountains-26.13222° N latitude, 3.63386° E. longitude .The Apollo 15 landing site was located at 26° 4´ 54¨ north latitude by 3° 39´ 30¨ east longitude at the foot of the Apennine mountain range. The Apennines rise up to more than 15,000 feet (4572 m) along the southeastern edge of Mare Imbrium (Sea of Rains).The Apennine escarpment–highest on the Moon–had been selected to allow the astronauts to drive from the LM to the Apennine front during two of the EVAs.
This time, he had Mr. Shafer to give the okay for us to enter the room, with him as our armed escort. But this time the walls on all four sides were photo-to-photo of UFOs and other very strange looking aircraft. We did our job, got out of there, but Mr. Shafer and the officer both told us to not speak to anyone of what we saw or observed in that room, ever! During Man Rated Tests, the fire department was trained to be rescuers should anything happen. Or job was to stand-by in readiness during many long hours of boring, repetitious, and meaningless exercises. Most times it was not the Astronauts themselves who performed the exercises, rather it was trained test subjects who did. We all became acquainted with them. Buildings #7, #32, and #33 on Manned Spacecraft Center, were the test sites for Vacuum Chamber related tests. In Building #32, was housed the largest vacuum chamber in the free world. In Building #33, was the ultra-high vacuum test chamber, and Building #7 housed three test chambers. Building #7 is also where the Astronauts Space suits were manufactured.
Throughout the sixties, we performed numerous duties, some at MSC, while others were at Area 2000 at Ellington AFB in Genoa, Texas. Area 2000 was where the Lunar Landing Training Vehicle was tested and flown by test pilots and Astronauts. I was Crew Chief of the Contract Fire Department personnel at Area 2000 for close to a year, working all three shifts due to loss of personnel or whatever, but eventually being promoted up the ladder to Training Officer. Not anything really special happened while I was Training Officer, but I did get to go places that was off limits to other personnel. It was one of my jobs to draw the pre-fire attack plans for every building on Site, to accomplish that job, I had the need to enter all buildings and accurately record everything of interest towards fire, safety, and security onto drawings. That is why I remember so much detail concerning the buildings, their locations, the interior layouts, and where all exits and equipment relating to Fire, Safety and Security were located. Another part of everyone’s job was the Safety patrols during any mission.
From the first day on the job, before we were trained to become good little NASA Fire Fighters, we were told that we would perform various duties during our employment, that we would be constantly training, ensuring that we all would have the latest knowledge to do our job with the highest of proficiency. Part of the training regimen was to know, and I do mean know, every building so intimately that we could draw a set of plans for them in our sleep. We ate, slept, and dreamed of building plans; construction materials inside and out, how many panels and manufacturer name of all alarm systems; how to repair or reset those systems; what was in the buildings that could be dangerous to us during emergencies.etc. but mostly the interior layout, hallways, exits, room locations. With that small introduction, I will now attempt to give you the details of the safety patrols for Integrated Mission Control Center, commonly known as Building #30 on Johnson Space Center. Building #30 is not just one building, rather it is two separate buildings, each having distinct functions.
There is the Administrative side that houses support personnel, and the Mission Operations Control Rooms, otherwise known as the MOCR. By the way, at the time I was there, the Admin side of Building #30 was the building that housed the office of James Oberg. There are two MOCR’s located in IMCC, one on the second floor and one on the third floor. The building is like a big square, windowless structure sitting right next to the Southwestern Bell building. You can’t miss it, because it is the only building that looks like it. Three stories inside, it looks more like a five- storied structure from the outside. As you have most likely ascertained by now, there are some very high ceilings inside the MOCR’s. Although we were never told we couldn’t go into the MOCR’s during missions, all of the safety inspectors assumed that we weren’t welcome, that maybe we would be a distraction. However, we were allowed in every section surrounding the MOCR’s. On the second and third floors, there was the outside section, and the center section with a hallway completely around the inside of the building that separated the outside section from the inside.
The outside section of the building housed the air handlers, workshops, soft and hardware support offices, and tool rooms, while the inside portion was dedicated to the MOCR and it’s support. In the MOCR itself, was a huge screen that stretched across the entire wall. It was the mission map, which kept the technicians apprised where the vehicle was at any given moment during its orbits above the earth. On one end was the big television screen, which received its picture from a large bank of cameras directly behind the screen. Those cameras generated a lot of heat, and part of our duty during inspections was to make sure that there weren’t any ignitable materials in that area. It was kept dark for some reason, but the cameras gave off enough light so a person didn’t stumble around in there. It was also very cold most of the time, especially during missions. At the back of the MOCR is a series of glass windows. These windows are set into the wall that makes up the barrier that separates the viewing room from the MOCR. The viewing room has two doors for entry. Entry is accomplished by getting off the elevator, taking a right down the hall, and the first door is the first entryway. About twenty-five feet further down the hall is the second door.
Situated between them is a small door about three to four feet high. This door lets a maintenance technician into the area under the viewing room. On each side of the room, to the front are located phone booths, one on each side of the window. There are about eight rows of seats with a set of slight stairs that separate them into two sections. The seats are similar to any seat you may see in a movie house, but way more comfortable. Mounted on the wall above the big windows are two large screen colored TV’s with several high mounted speakers so the viewer can listen in to the conversations between the Astronauts and the ground crews. At the back of the room, right at the top of the center stairs, is a minor alarm panel. It was this minor alarm panel that safety had to monitor during all missions. The room was relatively quiet, cool and very comfortable. It was here I always chose to take a pipe break. My partner was also a pipe smoker, so we shared stories, listened to the quiet banter between the ground crew and the vehicle, and actually didn’t pay much attention to what was going on in the MOCR. Nothing out of the way ever occurred in the Missions, but during one particular Mission, something so unique happened that I would always remember it.
Jim Baker and I had been doing the regular routine safety inspection during a Manned Mission to the Moon. We entered the viewing room at the end of our patrol, and as was our wont, sat at the back of the room to enjoy a pipe. We both smoked a pipe, and the viewing room allowed smokers. We had been there for no longer than fifteen minutes, it may have been longer, but I doubt it, when the stage left door opened and in walked several, at least five of the upper echelon administrators of Johnson Space Center. Uh, it actually wasn’t called Johnson Space Center at that time; rather the name was Manned Spacecraft Center. Anyway, I do know that one of the people was definitely Chrome Dome, as we were irreverently known to call Dr. Gilruth. At that time I had hair and found it funny to refer to one of the finest minds our country had by the moniker, “Chrome Dome.” Just prior to their entering the viewing room, Jim and I noticed that the Technicians in the MOCR had gotten up and left the room. Now, that isn’t unusual during a normal EVA, but the Astronauts were in Hadley’s Rille. They couldn’t be seen because they were over the edge, down in the Rille itself. The Lunar Rover was about thirty, maybe forty or more yards from the edge, and had the left front camera on the spot where the Astronauts had disappeared.
You could hear the Astronauts voices talking, but as in most of the dialogs, we weren’t paying close attention to what they were saying. We did notice the technicians getting up and leaving the MOCR. Jim is the one who actually said something about it. “Looks as if everyone got a bee in their bonnet at the same time, don’t it?” “Most probably their piss and lunch break,” I offered. It was right after I made that statement, that Dr. Gilruth entered, and several others came in with him. They didn’t look back, just went to the center of the viewing room and were talking excitedly among themselves and pointing towards the big screen to the right of the main screen in the MOCR. Jim and I then paid close attention to what was on the screen. There was an object above the spot where the Astronauts were supposed to be in Hadley’s Rille, just hovering. I am totally positive as to it being an object; it was round, it had a shiny side with a shadow side, with the shadow side matching the shadows on the moon, and though all the video shots coming from the moon looked black and white, they could actually have been in color. The harsh lighting was probably responsible for the illusion of black and white. Anyway, The object started a slow move from screen left to screen right. The camera on the left front of the Rover followed the object as it moved screen right. Soon it was apparent that it actually wasn’t moving screen right, but was circling the Rover. The Rover has two mounted cameras on it.
One camera was mounted on the left front and one on the right rear. As the object came into view of the right rear, that camera picked up the object and continued tracking it as it circled, very slowly around the Rover. It finally came to the point where the right rear camera could no longer follow it, so the left front camera picked up the image again and followed it to where it was once more above where the Astronauts were in Hadley’s Rille. I uttered something that brought us to the attention of Dr. Gilruth and the others. “What the crap is that? What caused me to utter that phrase was, the object took off straight up and went out of sight in less than a second. It may have been longer, but seemed like it was gone in the blink of an eye, but I was still aware that it had actually gone straight up. One of the men there, I still think it was Everette Shafer, turned and asked us what we were doing in the room, and we told them that we were there to inspect the fire alarm panel at the rear of the room and to take our smoke break. And to ask a question of our own. “What in hell was that about ? “Can you believe they actually told us it was a drop of oil on the lens of the camera on the moon? Truth! Now, I am not stupid, though I have done a few stupid things in my life, like getting married the first time, but I know a pile of schlock when I hear it!
It wasn’t a drop of oil, no way! I opened my mouth and said, “There’s no way it was on the lens on the camera on the moon. “”The temperature would freeze the drop solid. “To Which the man holding my clearance in his hand, reading my name replied, “I mean it was a drop of oil on the camera lens at the back of that screen.” To which he pointed. Okay, it was a good place to shut up and get out of the viewing room, but.. Once more I said something because as I have previously stated, I’m not stupid!” There’s no way that drop of oil is on any one of those lenses at the back of the screen, because of the temperature.”” The heat is high enough back there to set the drop of oil on fire. “Who ever it was holding my badge in his hand, says, “If you want to keep your job, you’ll get out of here and keep your mouth shut about what occurred here. “Not about what I saw, not about why I was in there, just get out and keep my mouth shut about what had occured. I pulled away from him, turned to Jim and said lets go.
When we exited the room, to our surprise, there was Dick Nieber and Loring E. Williams of security on the doors. They were as surprised at seeing us come out of the room as we were at seeing them standing guard there. Further, they told us that Andrado and two others were on the rear doors to keep unauthorized people out of there. Then they told us their story: They were pulled away from vehicular patrol and told to go immediately to IMCC and the second floor MOCR viewing room and stand guard until further notice. They were told that absolutely nobody other than Dr. Gilruth and the people who were with him were to be allowed into the room. It’s no wonder our being there disturbed Dr. Gilruth and the others; we weren’t supposed to be there. When Nieber asked us what had happened in there, we told them we couldn’t discuss it. They thought that the Astronauts had been killed. That was what had been circulating between them while they were guarding the doors to the viewing room. Wrong!
That same evening, I sat at the typewriter and wrote out everything, time, date, place, and mission, plus all the names I could remember of who were there with all the facts concerning the incident, and asked Jim Baker to read it and sign it. He read it and signed it on condition that I would give him a copy of the report. I went to the copier, and made six complete copies of the report and gave Jim one of them. Incidentally, when we arrived back at the fire station, Sgt. Thomas Walsh asked us to come to the dispatcher’s office to speak to him. He closed the door and told us that he’d received a call from Shafer, that no matter what we had seen or heard in the viewing room, we were not supposed to discuss it with anyone at all, ever, because it had to do with National Security. “National Security over a drop of oil on a camera lens?” I think not!Jim Baker died in 1983 of a sudden heart attack. He was forty- six and one of my best friends and we got together regularly at his home, in his gun shop to discuss different people and things. The last time I saw him alive, I asked him if he still had his report hidden away and he told me he had actually burned his copy, but had given a copy to another friend from West Virginia who wanted it. I retired in 1979, and moved to Austin Texas.
I was security dispatcher for the LBJ Presidential Library there in Austin when I got a call from Jim’s daughter, Amey, telling me that her father had passed away early that morning. Jim’s last words to me, there in his little gun shop was, “You sure raised hell over that drop of oil, but you were right, they were full of shit and you knew it.” Addendum: 03-13-05I looked it up recently and it was Apollo 15. For some reason, I have lost my original notes written up on NASA Fire Department’s old IBM Selectric. However, I must reiterate that it wasn’t a film, it was real-time and we observed the incident as it happened on the big screen in the MOCR on the second floor at Building 30, aka, Mission Operations Control Center. We had stopped in the viewing room to check the minor fire panel at the rear of the room and then sat down to smoke our pipes. We had been in there about fifteen minutes when in walked Dr. Gilruth and about five other men. They didn’t even know we were in the room until the object took off straight up, this being after it had circled the Lunar Rover. As I stated, it was the Flight where the Astronauts had landed close to Hadley’s Rille, and when the incident happened, they were out of sight over the edge, in the Rille. To the best of my knowledge, that is what was being told by the news media. However, when we returned to the Fire Station, nobody had seen the object, and Sgt. Thomas Walsh had taken us into the Dispatchers office and told us that he had received a call from Everette Shafer, NASA Security, telling him to apprise us of the oaths we had signed concerning National Security and the penalties attached to breaking the law.*:Spelling may be Sheaffer, or Sheafer
In addition to this very recent information about the astronauts sighting one or more UFOs while in Hadley’s Rille, the following is a conversation discovered from NASA’s Apollo 15 flight journal with the crew in respect to an interview with news media.
270:22:37 Scott: Roger. Go ahead with your questions.
270:22:46 Henize: Roger. We’ll – we’ll admire the beautiful picture for – for a few minutes here.
270:22:56 Henize: Deke just passed out from the shock, incidentally.
[The crew appear in a row, facing the camera. Dave is camera-left, Al in the centre and Jim to camera-right. Dave has a noticeable beard after 12 days in space.]
270:23:15 Henize: Okay, fellas. I have a preliminary statement to make here. The questions you will be asked in this news conference have been submitted by newsmen here at the Manned Spacecraft Center who’ve been covering the flight. Some of the questions they raised have been answered in your communications with – with Mission Control, but the public-at-large has not necessarily heard them. The questions are being read to you exactly as submitted by the newsmen, and in an order of priority specified by them.
270:23:46 Henize: Question number 1. This last week, we have shared scores of exciting moments with you. Which single moment would you most like to live again, and is there any moment which you would never like to repeat?
270:24:03 Scott: Well, I guess we all probably have a different idea of which would be the single most exciting moment of the flight, and maybe we’ll just run through it one at a time. I guess the most impressive moment I can remember is standing up on Hadley mountain – Hadley Delta, and looking back at the plain and seeing the LM and the rille and Mount Hadley, and the whole big picture in one – one swoop. And I think we’ve got some pictures for you from up there, and I believe the TV was running at the same time, and I think that was probably the most impressive sight that I’ve ever seen. Al?
This information puts a whole new light on the following photos acquired over the years.
David Scott made his third space flight as spacecraft commander of Apollo 15, July 26 – August 7, 1971. His companions on the flight were Alfred M. Worden (command module pilot) and James B. Irwin (lunar module pilot). Apollo 15 was the fourth manned lunar landing mission and the first to visit and explore the moon’s “Hadley Rille” and Apennine Mountains which are located on the southeast edge of the Mare Imbrium (Sea of Rains).
Hi Ken : It wasn’t a very nice day it had been raining for most of the morning but I still decided to go to Babbacombe for a couple of hours to see if I could capture any more anomalous objects near the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship that was still anchored there. I had found the perfect place to stand and take photographs of the ship. I had a great view so I started to take some photographs with my Nikon P900 camera and once again an anomalous object appeared right above the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship. I managed to capture it in a photograph before it shot off at incredible speed which instantly caused me to lose sight of it. I looked around but did not see where it had gone. These objects are obviously keeping a constant presents around this area.
This is pretty evident to me due to the ridiculous amount of objects that I have been sighting and photographing there. It would appear that the best time to capture them is between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm in the afternoon for some reason. I have a theory why this maybe the case. I believe that some of these objects are returning back to there secret under water layer which must be located somewhere in this vicinity. It really is mind boggling that since these cruise ships have been anchored there offshore, activity has clearly increased. This is a very strange phenomena and one that I will continue to research for further answers. The photograph was taken at 16:02 PM on the 1st of October 2020, at Babbacombe Torquay Devon England. All the best John.
KEN PFEIFER WORLD UFO PHOTOS AND NEWS
SEPTEMBER 30, 2020………TEIGNMOUTH DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken : I went back to Teignmouth to see if I could capture any more anomalous objects around the area like I had the previous day. I was standing on East cliff bridge looking towards a church bell tower which I then decided to photograph. While in the process of taking a set of burst photographs with my Nikon P900 camera a UFO shot across the sky right above the church heading towards the sea. I managed to capture the object in one of the photographs. I then looked around the sky for anything else out of the ordinary and to my surprise I spotted a glowing ball of light that slowly flew across the sky before it disappeared into some thick cloud cover where I unfortunately lost sight of it.
Yet again I had managed to photograph another anomalous object at Teignmouth. Seeing and capturing these anomalous objects in my photographs has become a common occurrence for me around the Devon coast. No matter where I seem to be in Devon I always capture them. It’s very bizarre and I really can’t explain it. The photograph was taken at 4:23 PM on the 30th of September 2020, at Teignmouth Devon England.All the best John
The summer of 1971, I was working the night shift for Conoco Oil Co. at an open pit uranium mine west of Karnes City Tx.
I was one of 6 people operating Caterpillar 657B earth movers. We were down to about 210 feet deep when this incident happened. It was about 11:10 PM , just after shift change we were getting ready to crank our machines, when the 85 acre pit lit up as if it was daylight.
The light was so bright that I had to squint because it hurt my eyes. I remember hearing a high pitched hissing noise and the hair on my arms stood on end. I was so scared, I fell to the ground and started praying.
I remember trying to look up, but the light was so bright I couldn’t. After about 2 minutes, the light started getting dimmer and I could finally look up at it. What I saw amazed me. The object was round and the bright light was coming from the center of the bottom of the UFO.
Around the perimeter of the craft was hundreds of penlight size light beams that alternated in all colors of the spectrum. Now I know they were laser beams. The UFO was rising up slowly at first and then went straight up out of sight in about 10 seconds.
I was crying and shaking and so was everyone else. The other shift workers thought we were crazy when we told them what had happened. But we got the last laugh. This is how we proved it actually happened.
There is a vein of uranium ore that runs from George West Texas to almost Texarkana Texas. When determining where to place a mine, the following steps are accomplished:
(1) A geologist with a geiger counter flies over the area and finds the highest radiation reading.
(2) Drilling trucks are sent out and core samples are drilled to determine the highest concentration of uranium ore. These core samples are drilled in a grid pattern and every core sample is given a tracking number and logged in showing the concentration and amount of uranium present.
(3) The open pit mine is then laid out according to these core samples.
When this UFO incident happened, we were about 2 feet away from a layer of hard rock called the “tap rock” that laid directly on top of the uranium ore. The uranium ore varied in depth from 6 to 18 inches and had about the same brown color as low grade coal.
Two days after this incident, the tap rock was removed to expose the uranium ore. We were astounded to find that the uranium ore was now a chalky white substance that had NO radioactivity at all! There was a 250 foot diameter circle of this chalky material in the center of the pit.
Outside of the circle, the uranium ore was still as potent as before the incident. Core samples don’t lie. This chalky material was uranium before this incident.
Many a night I have laid in my bed thinking about what happened. I think the UFO needed the uranium for some reason. Marcus Harvey, Sam Rayburn Lake, TX NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Here is an intriguing photograph taken in Costa Rica of a UFO as it seems to enter or exit the water. The accompanying letter states:
“I am sending you a .GIF type file (converted to jpeg) with the photograph taken above Lake Cote in Costa Rica. After doing some research I have to clarify that, contrary to what I told you, it was not lake Arenal but Lake Cote instead, and, just to set the record straight, it wasn’t an American mapping plane, but a Costa Rican plane.
“This is an impressive photo,” and it’s already been analyzed in several parts of the world. I quote from the latest report by researchers Richard Haines and Jacques Valle:
“In summary, our analyses have suggested that an unidentified, opaque, aerial object was captured on film at a maximum distance of 10,000 feet. There are no visible means of lift or propulsion and no surface markings other than dark regions that appear to be nonrandom… There is no indication that the image is the product of a double exposure or a deliberate fabrication.” [Haines, and Vallee, 1989].
A high resolution camera was mounted on the plane pointing downwards, and programmed to take photographs of the terrain below every 17 seconds.
It shows in extraordinary detail all features of the landscape (water, shoreline, trees, etc.) and you’ll notice how it was determined that the object (about 600+ ft. or 200 meters in diameter was coming into the water from right to left at an angle of approximately 30° in relation to the surface of the water.
The area covered is approximately 7 miles across.
Famous Costarican contactee and expert in telecommunications, engineer Enrique Castillo whose reports are as trustworthy as you’ll ever get, and who has passed all sorts of tests involving hypnotic regression and lie-detection in laboratories in the U.S., had his first contact on top of the Irazu Volcano in Costa Rica, aproximately 9,000 feet above sea level.
It was back in 1963, in the exact spot which I have visited many times and which happens to look like an eerie artificial forest with more than 200 steel towers (veritable hub of telecommunication activities in the country).
Not far from there, I myself have spotted several crafts hovering at various heights while hiking in the mountains, some of them around the area where famous researcher Andreas Faber-Kaiser reported having gone down a tunnel which locals claim leads to the so called “Temple of the Moon”, a sacred building said to have been built some millennia ago by an advanced race as part of a compound that includes some 500 underground buildings.
A very credible UFO encounter occurred in the small town of Delphos, Kansas in 1971. This case has never been debunked, and is still considered as one of the very best physical trace cases involving a UFO landing. Sixteen year old Ron Johnson, along with his dog Snowball, was tending the family sheep when his attention was suddenly drawn to a mushroom-shaped UFO appearing in the night sky. The flying object, metallic with multi-colored lights, was hovering approximately 75 feet away from Ron among some trees. Johnson estimated the craft was only a few feet above the ground. He estimated the crafts diameter at 6-8 feet. Stunned by what he was looking at, he tried to get a closer look, but the brilliant luminance of the craft did not allow him to make out any additional details. Ron described the craft as making a loud sound, “like an old washing machine which vibrates. “The glow of the objects bottom increased as it began to rise up into the sky. Ron would later state that he was temporarily blinded by the brightness of the craft as it ascended. After he regained his sight and composure, he ran back to the family house to alert his mother and father, Erma and Durel.
The bright, glowing object was now even higher in the sky. Ron’s parents came running around the side of the house to get a glimpse of the unusual phenomena. They arrived just in time to see the object, now big as the full moon, as it disappeared from view. The three Johnsons were shocked to see a glowing ring on the ground, right below where the craft had hovered. There was also a glowing material on some of the trees nearby. Family members would agree that the ground around the glow “felt strange, like a slick crust, as if the soil was crystallized. “Ron’s mother’s fingers went numb, like she had been given a local anesthetic. After they were sure the craft was not returning, the family settled down for the night. When dawn broke the next day, the family immediately returned to the sight of the glowing ring, and to their surprise, it was still there! The inside and outside of the ring was damp from a rain shower, but the exterior of the ring was amazingly dry. The ring had a crusty appearance, as though the rain had simply ran off, leaving it bone dry. Slightly over a month later, after a snow fall, the white ice had melted both inside and outside of the ring, but the ring itself maintained the snow drift. Investigators experimented with the ring by removing snow from a section of it, and pouring water on the exposed part. The soil would not allow the water to pass through. The Johnsons told their story to the local newspaper, The Delphos Republican. Reporter Thaddia Smith, along with several members of her family, drove back out with the Johnsons to see the site of the UFO landing and the strange ring.
Smith’s report was as follows: “The circle was still very distinct and plain to see. the soil was dried and crusted. The circle or ring was approximately 8 feet across, the center of the ring and the outside area were still muddy from recent rains. The area of the ring that was dried was about a foot across and was very light in color. The object had crushed a dead tree to the ground either when it landed or took off, and from appearance had broken a limb of a live tree when it landed. the broken limb was most unusual, it would snap and break as though it had been dead for quite some time, yet it was green under the bark, and the upper area still had green leaves clinging to its branches. However the lower area looked as though it had been blistered and had a whitish cast. “Later the same day, Sheriff Enlow, Undersheriff Harlan Enlow, and Kansas State Highway Patrolman Kenneth Yager investigated the ring after being alerted to the fact is of the case by Thaddia Smith. Harlan Enlow filed this report:“…we observed a ring shaped somewhat like a doughnut with a hole in the middle. The ring was completely dry with a hole in the middle and outside of the ring mud. There were limbs broken from a tree and a dead tree broken off there. There was a slight discoloration on the trees. “Further experimentation showed the ground under the ring to be dry to a depth of one foot. The ring itself was composed of a whitish substance, which was sent to a laboratory for analysis.
The findings were as follows:
It was vegetal in nature and belonged to an organism of the order of Actinomycetales, which is an intermediate organism between bacteria and fungus… family actiniomycete, genus Nocardia… [and is] often found together with a fungus of the order Basidomycetes, which may flouresce under certain conditions… one possible interpretation is that high energy stimulation triggered the spectacular growth of the Nocardia and of an existing fungus, and caused the latter to flouresce.
There would also be another witness to corroborate Ron Johnson’s account of the UFO. Sheriff Enlow told the press;
“On 11-03-71 Mr. Lester Ensbarger of 416 Argyle St. in Minneapolis advised Deputy Sheriff Leonard Simpson that at approx. 7:30 p.m. 11-02-71 he had observed a bright light descending in the sky in the Delphos area.”
The experience of Ron Johnson is still considered as one of the best documented “ground trace” UFO cases of the past century, and is still unexplainable by any conventional or earthly means.
On February 3, 1972, one of Peru’s most famous UFO encounters took place. It happened in broad daylight and the saucer’s alien occupant was seen by the two human witnesses.
It all began early that morning in Puquilo, a desert town about 500 kilometers (300 miles) south of Lima. Tito Rojas and Adolfo Penafiel owned a feed store, and they had a delivery to make that day. So before the hot summer sun climbed too high in the cloudless blue sky, the men loaded up the flatbed of Tito’s pickup truck and set out for Nazca, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) to the north.
(Editor’s Note: In Peru, as in other countries of the southern hemisphere, February is a summer month.)
With the truck’s windows rolled all the way down, hoping to catch a breeze off the Pacific Ocean, Tito and Adolfo drove north on the Pan-American Highway. On both sides of the road, a monocolor landscape of brown sand and jagged rocks met their gaze, with the rugged cordillera rising on their right.
As they were crossing the desolate Pampa Carbonera south of Nazca, the truck’s radio, which had been tuned to a station in Arequipa, began to act up. The Latino music faded in and out. Bursts of static obliterated the music. Finally, the radio started emitting just static, and then it went silent.
“Not again!” Tito said, and he thumped the dashboard with his right fist.
“Maybe it’s the antenna,” Adolfo suggested.
Suddenly, the pickup truck’s engine began missing on all cylinders.
“Now, what!?” Tito swore, stepping down hard on the gas pedal.
The engine raced, but the truck didn’t respond. Swiveling the stickshift, Tito tried for a lower gear. The engine continued to sputter and cough. Finally, it quit completely, and Tito coasted over to the sandy shoulder of the highway.
“It might be the gas filter,” Adolfo said, as they left the truck’s cab.
“I think it’s the battery,” Tito replied, “The radio is out. So is the door light. I hope it’s a bad connection.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because if we need water, we’ve got enough,” Tito said, gesturing at the leather bota (water jug–J.T.) dangling from the gunrack. But it will take all day and all night if it has to recharge by itself.”
Lifting the hood (bonnet in UK–J.T.), Tito licked his thumb and pinky finger and touched the battery’s terminals. He let out a fierce yelp.
“Madre de Dios!” He shook his hand ginerly. “That wasn’t the problem.”
Adolfo, who had been looking toward the rugged quebradas of the coast range, pointed suddenly. “Look!”
“Look at what?” the driver replied.
“Out there on the pampa.” Adolfo squinted against the morning sun’s glare. “I think it’s a car.”
“A car!? Out there!?” Exasperated, Tito turned to that direction. “You’re seeing things. There’s no way a car could have driven…”
Tito let the rest trail off. He had seen it, too. A silvery gleam in the midst of the dwarf sand dunes. Shading his eyes, he added, “You’re right. There’s something out there. What the hell is that!?”
“Let’s find out,” Adolfo said, slip-sliding down the highway embankment, kicking up a miniature avalanche of pebbles and sand.
The two feed dealers hiked across the desert. As they closed in on the spot, the sun dazzle lessned, becoming a shiny gleam on the mirror-like silver surface of a large disc.
Excitement had Adolfo’s heart pounding. “Caramba! Un disco volante!”
It was a flying saucer, all right. What ufologists call “a daylight disc.” The object rested on a tricycle landing gear. There was no sign of any lights, windows or openings. Later they described the craft as 15 meters (50 feet) long and four meters (13 feet) high. Its surface was so highly polished that their gaze rebounded painfully from the sun’s reflection.
At that moment, to add to their surprise, the craft’s occupant rounded the front of the saucer. Adolfo described the alien as “a man of average height, wearing green clothes under a transparent space suit.”
Instantly Tito and Adolfo began running towards the saucer. They hurried “to the place to greet the strange visitor. But as soon as he saw them, he stopped his inspection of the pampa and took off.”
“The saucer rose into the air with a shrill metallic whine, a sound familiar to the people who live in the area, which would seem to indicate that the pampa is a landing field for extraterrestrials.”
