On Saturday, March 20, 2021, I had just gotten home from a late night at work with my husband and 6 year old son in the car. Immediately after parking the vehicle, I could see diagonal from our house, a rather large and fairly close sphere hovering over the rooftop past a 3/4 story building on the next street over. We could tell it wasn’t directly above the building, a little farther out, but couldn’t ignore that this sphere was rapidly changing from reds, blues, greens, violets and emitting just the brightest lights I’ve ever seen on anything in the sky. I couldn’t stop watching as my husband and son went inside, I stayed in the vehicle and recorded for about a half hour, various videos. I watched and recorded as this object slowly within this time frame started from above this 3/4 story building, until I lost it below the rooftops of the 1/2 story houses. The lights would stop sometimes and just emit a bright white, like glowing white color and then go back to the same reds, blues, greens and violets. It was absolutely stunning and beautiful. I wish I would have tried follow this object and see if it had landed or where it eventually ended up.
Hi Ken : I was outside sky watching when I spotted an object that was slowly moving across the sky right above the town. I looked through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera only to see that it was in fact a flying saucer. I could also see some type of distortion field around it, which was probably due to it’s anti gravitational propulsion system. I quickly zoomed in on the area of the sky where it was located and immediately took a photograph, capturing the saucer in a single image. The saucer then suddenly just shot straight up into the sky, which caused me to lose sight of it. I have witnessed this instantaneous acceleration many times before and each time, I am always left speechless by what I have seen. Even though the saucer flew up into the sky using it’s largest surface area, it exhibited no signs of drag as it cut straight through the air at terrific speed like a hot knife through butter. It really was quite incredible to see this technological advance craft move in this way. I feel very fortunate to have seen and captured it in a photograph. This is yet again another genuine flying saucer captured high above the town. These sightings occur on a regular basis around this area and cannot be ignored or trivialized. There is definitely something strange and mysterious happening around here. All I can do is keep documenting these reoccurring sightings. The photograph was taken at 1:24 PM on the 19th of March 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
I love to star gaze. I have seen many different satellites over the years and this was NOT a satellite. I was headed outside too warm my pickup up for work at 0545. It was a crisp clear starry nights sky out. Something caught my attention and I looked up. To my surprise I watched as an object was dropping into our atmosphere leaving a burning flame like trail. It was moving like a super slow motion meteor. It then slowed and almost stopped, changed direction and then kept moving. At this point I ran inside and grabbed my I phone and took as many pics as I could as it was moving away silently into the night. As you can see this is not a plane, train or automobile. I am not sure what it is. What I can say for sure though is that it burned into our nights sky leaving a short trail of what looked like a shower trail of sparks and flames, then changed direction and moved on. I wish I had my camera when it 1st came in. I watched it for about 30-45 seconds quite surprised at what I was viewing then realized I had to break away to get my phone. By the time I was able to actually snap some pics the burn had stopped and it was moving silently away from me headed North East.
It was about the length of a football field. Black, but angular features, almost like it was radar resistant. Was like a tall building on its side, with each level flat on the bottom and coming to a tip near the ‘front’. The UFO was seen about 300 feet above the ground at 39°00’08.6″N 94°23’45.6″W, I was driving eastbound at 39°01’01.3″N 94°22’28.7″W. By the time I got to the intersection at Lees Summit Drive and NW Vellie Rd, it had dropped to about 100 feet (just above tree line) and was about 1/4-1/2 mile north of its initial position. The movement of the UFO was like perfect motion, still, no shift in the wind, just a slow decent. It looked like it was going to land at around 39°01’24.5″N 94°24’23.1″W, but who knows. Maybe it was just trying to hide? I had my phone out to capture a recording, I hit record, but by the time I had passed the object from view, I noticed that my recording didn’t commence, I was extremely frustrated. I can’t stop thinking about what I’ve seen. I’ve never seen anything like it and can only be described as a UFO. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This sighting is one of the best recorded in Argentina, but it is practically unknown to English-speaking ufologists as it has been published in Spanish magazines only. Expedia Argentina has traveling information if you are thinking of visiting Yacanto to learn more about this sighting.
Perhaps for that very reason it has escaped the attention of the professional debunkers, but a more likely cause is that it is an extraordinary case for which their usual hand-waving techniques simply would not work.
It is a single-witness case, but this witness is a high-ranking officer of the Argentinean Air Force (AAF), who by a fluke was able to obtain a remarkable photograph as supporting evidence of his encounter.
Even in Argentina, and perhaps due to the association of the witness with the AAF, the case was not given much publicity until 1977, when it finally was reported in UFO PRESS (ref. 1).
(b) The witness. The witness in this sighting is Hugo F. Niotti, then a captain of the AAF assigned to the Air Force School for Sub-officers located in the city of Cordoba. Contrary to what many would expect, his involvement in the case did not affect his military career, and seventeen years later, when finally interviewed by Roncoroni, he had risen to the high rank of vice-commodore, occupying a responsible position with the AAF.
(c) The incident. On July 3, 1960, then Captain Niotti was driving from Yacanto toward Cordoba. The weather was inclement, typical of what one would expect for that area in the middle of winter. It was drizzling off and on, and the cloud deck was very low, perhaps 100-150 m.. The road was rather slippery, and Capt. Niotti was concentrating hard on his driving.
At approximately 4:30 PM, he was in the area of Villa General Belgrano, about 70 Km from the city of Cordoba. He had finished negotiating a wide S-curve, when he suddenly noticed a rather close and unusual object hovering near the ground to the right of the road.
Startled, he stopped the car, grabbed his camera, fortunately next to him on the seat, moved a few steps away, and proceeded to take a photo of the object, which was moving slowly. While he was engaged in winding the film to take a second shot, the object started to accelerate and disappeared into the clouds, which as stated, were very low.
The whole incident had lasted about 40 seconds and had developed into the most absolute silence. This eerie silence, coupled with the bad weather and the abruptness of the incident, gave Capt. Niotti a sense of irreality, which puzzled and confused him. In this mood, he jumped back into his car and continued his trip to Cordoba, where he proceeded to have the film processed.
Here is Capt. Niotti’s description of what he had seen. The object was conical in shape, with a height of 7-8 meters and a base diameter of 3-4 meters, with its axis almost parallel to the ground and its base facing the witness. It was at a distance of 80 to 100 meters from his location and moving very slowly toward the south, perhaps at 10 KPH, always parallel to the ground. It was rotating, also very slowly. It then accelerated very rapidly, attaining a speed of perhaps 200 KPH in 3 or 4 seconds, and disappeared into the low cloud bank. This sudden acceleration without any sound was inexplicable to the witness in view of his proximity.
The color of the object was a uniform dark gray. The surface was perfectly smooth without joints or rivets and had a definite metallic aspect.
(d) The photograph.
As an officer of the AAF, Niotti was naturally reclutant to divulge his experience and initially told only a few fellow officers, who persuaded him to send the negatives and copies to the “Revista Nacional de Aeronautica” (RNA); the editors of this official magazine transmitted the photo to the “Servicio de Informaciones de Aeronautica” (SIA), a technical service available to the Air force.
The SIA gave a good bill of health to the photo, and the sighting was reported by the RNA in its issue of November, 1960. It is remarkable that never before or after have the Armed Forces made public the results of a UFO investigation.
In the years to follow, many examinations of this photo have been done except, perhaps, by the so-called debunkers, and no negative options have been voiced.
There are two interesting details in the photo which must be emphasized. When Capt. Niotti saw the object, his perception was of a uniform color; thus, he was surprised –after developing the film— that in the photographic image the base of the cone is a dull black, without any gradation of color in spite of being oriented toward the sun, which was hidden by the clouds. The rest of the cone appears much lighter, to the point that it is sometimes difficult to obtain copies showing it clearly, due to the high contrast between the base and the sky background. The edges of the base, in the original negative, appear sharp and well-defined, even more defined that other elements appearing in the photograph. It seems as if the base of the cone were a total sink of radiation, reflecting no light.
The copy of the photo presented in this report is from a second-generation negative, and its quality does not compare with the prints made from the original negative.
The other anomalous detail in the photo is the presence of a horse whose head is turned around, its attention apparently drawn by the object. As anyone familiar with a rural environment knows, horses kept in pastures near roads become totally indifferent to traffic and will not interrupt their grazing for the presence of a car. Nevertheless, the horse seems to be looking directly at the object, placed halfway between him and the road.
The existence of the horse is fortunate, as it has allowed some estimates of sizes and distances. The Argentinean investigators have performed some photogrammetry using the original negative, and report that the horse is about 80 meters from the road, which places the object at no more than 50 meters from Capt. Niotti. No wonder he was surprised by the absolute silence!.
On the basis of these estimates, the dimensions of the cone were 7 m. in height and 6 m. in diameter, and it was 17 meters above the ground, in good agreement with the numbers indicated by Capt. Niotti.
But the most interesting detail, which I have reserved for the end, is that Capt. Niotti was extremely surprised when he inspected the copies of the photo and saw the horse, as he had not noticed its presence during the incident. This is a clear indication of his concentration while taking the photo, and his disorientation after the sudden departure of the object when he just jumped back into his car and continued his trip.
A case with a single witness usually is not even considered for incorporation into UNICAT, but in this instance we have two circumstances that allow an exception to the rule.
First, we have a competent witness, trained by his profession to observe details, who did not lose his presence of mind when confronted with the unknown. On the contrary, he reacted promptly, snatching his camera and jumping out of his car to obtain a unique graphic document.
And second, the photograph by itself lends enough credibility to the case to make it deserve serious consideration. Not only has the photo repeatedly been shown to be genuine, but it is inconceivable that the Air Force officer would compromise his career with a fabrication that would bring him nothing but problems and discredit. For those who know Vice-commodore Niotti, this option is unthinkable.
From the UNICAT viewpoint, the case also offers some interesting characteristics which confirm its value. Among the many parameters searched for when studying the case, there are two that are considered as particularly significant because of their high statistical incidence. Both of them apply to this sighting:
The first of these parameters appears in the UNICAT data base with a frequency of 33.8%, while LR shows a frequency of 37.9%, both of them being included within the ten most frequent parameters.
A third parameter that is not so frequent, but that seems to occur in significant cases, is also found for this incident. It is the RC parameter, i.e., “rounding a curve”. It indicates that the witness suddenly notices the phenomenon when coming out of a curve in the road.
One harsh November evening in 1961, Paul Miller and three buddies were on their way home after a hunting trip close to Minot, North Dakota.
Suddenly, something they described as a “glowing silo” landed on a nearby field.
They first believed that it was an airplane that had crash landed, but they were forced to change their minds when the object suddenly disappeared.
But when the four decided to drive away, the object reappeared and two humanoids stepped out of the craft.
Miller, who was struck by panic, shot one of the beings, apparently injuring it. The second being fled. On the way home, Miller and his team had a “blackout” and lost track of three hours. They then decided not to tell the story to anyone.
The next day when Miller arrived at his office (at the Air Force), he was visited by three men wearing black suits.
They said that they were from the government and they began asking questions about his encounter and Miller later recalled “that it seemed that they knew everything about me, and they probably already knew my answers”.
Instead it seemed that they were more interested in what clothes Miller had worn at the time of the encounter and the men followed Miller home to take a look at them.
The men made such a threatening impression on Miller that he didn’t dare to tell his story for many years.
HAWAII — An unidentified flying object spotted in Hawaii caught enough people’s attention to get the Federal Aviation Administration involved. FAA agents confirm they did receive reports about the UFO from police, who were getting several 911 calls about it. The callers all said they saw a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean.
Multiple videos show the object flying in the night sky near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli. “I look up and then I was like oh s***,” Mistina Sape said in an interview with a local news station “(I) started calling my husband then because they were all in the garage. I was like ‘hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see.'” They all did.
“I don’t know what it was. This one was going so fast,” Sape said. ABC’s Gio Benitez reports on the investigation into the UFO sightings. Sape has never been a believer in UFOs, but the bright blue object intrigued her so much that she jumped in the car and followed after it. Her investigation ended three miles later when the blue light, which she described as being larger than a telephone pole, appeared to fall into the ocean. It crashed through the water without making a sound. That’s when Sape and her husband called 911. When officers arrived, they all spotted a second light in the sky.
“My husband went (to) look up and he saw the white one coming. The white one was smaller; (it) was coming in the same direction as the blue one.” The white light passed over a nearby town and disappeared from view. Honolulu Police Department said it did not have any information about the case it could release. However, the FAA said it received a report from the department about a possible airplane down in the area. The FAA said it did not have any aircraft disappear off the radar nor any reports of overdue or missing aircraft. “To this day I don’t know,” Sape said.
Driving south along school land road along black river in Rochester Washington. noticed red blinking light followed by a triangular object with three white lights and one red light near front center. Objects appeared to be connected and moved silently above treetops. I estimate it was between 500 and 1000 feet in elevation. Clip of iPhone video attached as well as screen shot. Have observed this object near the same area in the past on several occasions as a pulsing red light with darken object trailing behind.
APRIL 18, 1962 …….NEW YORK, KANSAS, COLORADO, UTAH AND NEVADA
Very few of the crash/retrieval stories take place on a military reservation. The majority of the reports are from civilians who have happened onto the scene of an extraordinary event. The reported destruction of a craft near Nellis Air Force Base, outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1962 is the exception that proves the rule.
The vast Nellis complex is the one location where it seems a flying saucer crashed right into government and air force hands. And there are, literally, dozens of firsthand witnesses to the fact.
Like many of the reports of UFO crashes, the Las Vegas case was overlooked by most of the UFO research community. Frank Edwards, who mentioned the Roswell case in a single paragraph in his 1966 book Flying Saucers-Serious Business, wrote more about the crash near Las Vegas in his 1964 book Strange World.
Although he often wrote from memory and didn’t always check his facts as closely as possible, he did get the basics of the case reported before anyone else bothered with it.
According too him, an object sighted over Oneida, New York, was headed to the west. There were reports from Kansas and Colorado, and indications of something near the ground outside of Eureka, Utah. Something bright enough to later light up the streets of Reno, Nevada, like the noonday sun, and then turn toward Las Vegas, far to the south and hack to the east. It flared brightly and disappeared from the Nellis Air Force Base radar scopes at ten thousand feet.
This was an object seen by thousands as it crossed the country on the evening of April 18, 1962. The air force and debunkers quickly wrote it off as a bolide, a meteor so bright that it could light the darkened ground like the afternoon sun. That is, the reported explanation is of a natural phenomenon that is rare, interplanetary, but certainly not under intelligent control.
Edwards claimed that only one newspaper carried anything about the exploding object. The Las Vegas Sun had printed the story, and Edwards, without interviewing a single witness himself, had used that as the basis for his report.
The April 19 edition of the Sun reported BRILLIANT RED EXPLOSION FLARES IN LAS VEGAS SKY. Their story left no doubt about what had happened and the many witnesses to it. In the lead paragraph, Jim Stalmaker, a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, told of a flaming sword that started a ground search for a weird unidentified flying object that had the air force on alert in several states.
A spokesman for the North American Air Defense Command in Colorado Springs. Colorado, Lieutenant Colonel Herbert Rolph, told reporters that the first observers, in the Oneida, New York, area, had seen a glowing red ball heading to the west. It was at great altitude, made no sound, and disappeared in seconds.
Radar picked up the object, and operators watched it as it streaked into the Midwest. The Air Defense Command alerted a number of bases, including Nellis in Las Vegas. Reports indicate that fighters were scrambled from Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix.
In Nephi, Utah, according to the Las Vegas Sun, witnesses reported the glowing red object flew overhead. When it was gone, there was a rumbling like that of jet engines.
Edwards thought it might have been from the engines of the interceptors as they chased the UFO. Then, according to the reports, the UFO came down near Eureka, Utah, interrupting electrical service from a power plant close to the landing site. It took off a few minutes later, continuing to the west.
It was seen over Reno, Nevada, apparently made a sweeping turn to the south, and then disappeared from the radar screens east of the strip where most of the places to stay in Las Vegas are now located.
The Clark County, Nevada, sheriff’s office was swamped with phone calls about the explosion. Witnesses said the object was traveling almost horizontally northeast of Las Vegas until the final explosion from the direction of Mesquite, Nevada.
Sheriff’s deputy Walter Bun, who led the search and rescue unit, moved the unit into the Spring Mountain area in jeeps to search for wreckage. In a phone interview conducted in November 1988 Butt told me they searched through the night, and when the sun came up they continued, using aircraft.
They didn’t find anything of importance, except some ashes that could easily have been the remains of a campfire started by a hunter weeks earlier. When no one reported a downed or missing aircraft, Bun and the other deputies called off the search.
Also mentioned in the Las Vegas Sun story was Frank Maggio, a staff photographer Using the Las Vegas telephone directory, I looked up Frank Maggio. There was no listing for him, but there was a Maggio Photo Lab. Thinking it had to be the same person, I called. It was.
He couldn’t add anything to the story that had appeared in the paper. He described the UFO as a “tremendous flaming sword.” There was a series of bright explosions that broke up the trail across the sky. It vanished east of Las Vegas.
The next step seemed obvious. In 1969 the air force had announced the closing of Project Blue Book, the official UFO investigation. Six or seven years later, the Blue Book files were declassified, and anyone who could get to Maxwell Air Force Base near Montgomery, Alabama, could do research in them.
Not long after that, they were transferred to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and put on microfilm. Anyone with the resources could buy copies of them. Ninety- six rolls of microfilm at $22 a roll. All I had to do was check in the Blue Book files and see what they had to say about the case.
0n April 18, according to the Blue Book files, there was a radar sighting at Nellis Air Force Base that was at first labeled as “Unidentified” but later changed to “Insufficient Data for a Scientific Analysis.” On the Project Record Card (ATIC FORM 329) the case was summarized as a:
“Radar sighting. Speed of object varied. (Important to note that] Initial observation at 060, no elevation. Disappearance at 105 [degrees] az [at] 10,000 feet altitude. Heading tentatively NE, however disappeared instantly to S. Observed by search and height radars. ‘No visual.”
That last statement was ridiculous. No visual sighting, except for all those people in Las Vegas who called the sheriff’s office. No visual, except for Frank Maggio, who reported the fiery end to the object. No visual, except Walter Butt who led a search party into the desert to look for wreckage.
I continued to search the file, looking for a reference to the sighting from the Eureka, Utah, area: information that was available to the Las Vegas Sun, but not in the official air force file about the sighting near Nellis.
The master index showed no sighting in Utah on April 18, but did list a meteor on April 19. (Later notes in the file itself confirm the April 18 date.) The Project Record Card claimed: “Object came in over Cuba and apparently landed in rough terrain West of Eureka, Utah. Bright enough to trip photo electric cell which controlled city street lights.” They also note, “Multiple rpts. Attempted recovery by Col. Friend and Dr. Hynek.” They finish by noting the explanation is “Astro, probably meteor.”
There was a file folder available, but it was not filed where it should have been but stuck at the end of the April 1962 section. Included in it were a number of reports by military officers made shortly after the incident.
According to Captain Herman Gordon Shields, who was interrogated at Hill Air Force Base by Douglas M. Crouch, the chief of the criminal investigation sections:
I was flying a C-119 aircraft from the left seat [captain’s seat]. We were approximately two miles west of La Van, Utah flying at 8500 feet MSL. Our true airspeed was a little less than 170 knots. We were making a right turn from a heading of about 068 degrees to 165 degrees. We were approximately 25 degrees of bank on the aircraft and we had turned for about 30 degrees to a heading of about 098 or 100 degrees, somewhere in there, when it began to get very bright in the, cockpit.
The illumination was from above. It built up slowly. My first impression while the intensity was low was that it was the landing lights of another aircraft. Of course, when the intensity increased this was ruled out automatically. The cockpit was illuminated from above. In the C-119 aircraft there is an instrument panel in the middle of the cockpit up above on the ceiling of the cockpit.
The light source was coming from this area that was blanked out, in other words, straight behind this instrument panel because neither Lieutenant Larson, who was in the fight seat nor I saw the source of the illumination. We continued the turn. The light intensity increased until we could see objects [on the ground] as bright as day for a radius of five to ten miles from the aircraft.
This would probably be a diameter of twenty miles or so. Objects on the ground, on the hills around us, were clearly distinguishable. Colors were distinguishable. It was as bright as daylight. The intensity of the light diminished faster than it had increased. After the light had decreased in intensity we were still looking for the light source, and I noticed an object to my left between the wing and the lower part of the fuselage of the aircraft against the hills. By this time the light had decreased so that the hills were dark.
It was night again. And this object which I saw was illuminated. It had a long slender appearance comparable to a cigarette in size, that is, the diameter with respect to the length of the object. The fore part, or the lower part of the object was very bright, intense white such as a magnesium fire. The second half, the aft section, was a clearly distinguishable yellowish color. I would say the object was just about divided in half, the fore part being intensely white, the aft section having a more yellow color to it.
Later in the same report, Captain Shields said, “I saw only a slender object. I don’t know what the shape was. It was only a slender object … There was no exhaust, no trail following after it. It was clearly defined. I saw it for a period of maybe one to two seconds.”
Also available in the Eureka file was an unclassified intelligence report that ran to seven single-spaced pages on legal- sized sheets. Many of the witnesses reported only a ball of fire passing overhead. They reported a series of explosions after the object was gone (sonic booms?) and a trail of gray smoke.
A man in Silver City, Utah (name blanked out by air force officers in 1976) claimed that the object was a glowing ball of light about the size of a soccer ball. He said it was white with a yellowish tint and a bright yellow jagged flame coming from the rear (confirming the description of Captain Shields). The unidentified witness claimed:
As the object passed over Robinson [Utah), it slowed down in [the] air, and after, [a] gasping sound was heard, the object spurted ahead again. After this procedure was repeated three or four times, the object arched over and began descending to earth after which the object turned bluish color and then burned out or went dark. After the object began to slow down it began to wobble or “flshtail” in its path.
At the end of the report, Crouch wrote: The preparing officer is Chief Criminal Investigator, OS-9, Security and Law Enforcement Division, Hill Air Force Base, Utah. Preliminary analysis indicates that each of the observers interviewed were logical, mature persons, and that each person was convinced that he had observed some tangible object, not identifiable as a balloon or conventional type aircraft.
The theory that the object was a manned aircraft was abandoned due to the described shape and color and flaming tail of the object, plus the fact there are no reports of missing aircraft in this area. No unusual meteorological or astronomical conditions were present which would furnish an explanation for the sighting. No missile test firings are conducted in the immediate area other than static tests.
The hypotheses that the object was a falling meteor is questioned due to the statements of three observers describing the flat trajectory, plus the description of sounds emanating from the object. Due to the inaccessibility of the valley, ten miles wide by 15 miles long in which the object apparently came to earth, no further search for the object is contemplated. With the completion of this initial report, no explanation has been developed for the brilliant illumination of the area, the object itself, or the explosion in the wake of the object.
The final report was signed by Douglas M. Crouch and by Major Charles W. Brion, chief, Sec. and Law Enforcement Division, both at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.
Air force investigation of the sighting had also showed that the object came down near Eureka, Utah. An orange, glowing object that was bright enough to shut off the photoelectric cells had been reported in that area.
But even with the conclusions drawn by the first investigators of the sightings, the air force sent J. Allen Hynek and Lieutenant Colonel Robert Friend to Utah on May 8, 1962. Crouch accompanied them on their investigation. They spent “one full day” tracking down the witnesses in central Utah. (25) At the end of the day they decided that the residents had seen a very rare phenomenon known as a bolide. (26) That would be the end of the case.
Later Friend, writing to “Hq USAF, SAFOI-3b [Major Hart]” reported: The number of reports generated by the 18 April 1962 sighting, and the fact that the Air Force investigation came to a negative conclusion regarding the UFO, they indicated it couldn’t have been a meteor (Attachment #1), prompted further investigation by FTD [Foreign Technology Division]…
This investigation was completed in one full day and it was concluded that the object was a bolide. An attempt was made to locate the object but this effort failed due to the general nature of the data. Further study of this sighting indicates that the meteor probably struck in the area of the Wasatch National Forest; however, the Air Force has made no further at tempts to recover it.
Friend’s statement, the fact that he and Hynek went to the area, and the absence of conflicting data suggest that the most likely explanation is the one they offered. In fact, Dr. Robert Kadesch, an associate professor of physics at the University of Utah, confirmed that view with me. Also quoted in several area newspapers, Kadesch said, simply, it “probably was a bolide.”
But the official air force file, Friend’s letter, and Kadesch’s statements are not the whole story of the Utah end of this case. Interviews I conducted with the principals in the case create more questions than they answer. And the newspaper reports create an interesting enigma.
According to the Nevada State Journal, the object flew over Reno, passing west to east. Yet the witnesses in Utah universally claim the object was traveling from the southeast to the northwest. At some point the UFO seems to have reversed its course, and a meteor wouldn’t do that.
Among the first to sight the object was Sheriff Raymond Jackson of Nephi. According to him, he was on Main Street and “heard kind of a roar.” He glanced up and saw a yellow-white flame going west, heard a series of loud booms, and saw the lights in Nephi go out. Jackson noticed specifically the lights in the doctor’s office, but said, “All the lights went out temporarily.” That would become an important clue when the rest of the case was put together.
Also in the Nephi area were Maurice Memmott and Dan Johnson. According to a story published in the Nephi Times News, both men were south of town, working on their farms, when the object shot overhead. Memmott claims that he no longer remembers much about the incident, just a bright light in the sky that lit the ground like the sun. He told me that he now believes that it was a meteor.
Dan Johnson, on the other hand, remembers the event quite well. He. said, “The two of us were out in the fields … there were no lights so we were in total darkness.” It came over the southeastern horizon and passed directly over them. “It was a very bright light.”
Johnson didn’t remember hearing any sound, but did claim that the object landed somewhere in the northwest. He didn’t think it was more than five or six miles away.
Johnson also said that several men — he thought they might have been military though none were in uniform — came out to interview both Memmott and him. The men drove them back out into the country and made them point to the location where the object landed.
The Times-News confirmed Johnson’s story of the investigation and added an interesting note. The speculation was that the investigators were not from the air force, but soldiers from the army’s Dugway Proving Grounds not that far from the area.
Tracking the dates supplied by Friend’s report and the information available from the Times-News, it seems that the conclusion is correct. Two separate teams of investigators made the rounds in Nephi after the events. And a few people remembered talking to Colonel Friend and Dr. Hynek. Friend, it seems, was in uniform during the one day he was there. There is no way that the two teams could have been confused.
Sergeant E. C. Sherwood of the Utah Highway Patrol was also in Nephi that evening. He looked up in time to see the ball of fire and thought that it was something from New Mexico’s White Sands Missile Range. It was a bright light that was mostly blue and it seemed to explode right over him, throwing off a cloud of white sparks.
Sherwood’s wife heard the explosion and ran outside. She saw the bright light but nothing beyond that. She mentioned to me that the neighbors were also outside, looking up into the night sky.
A number of other residents in Nephi reported the explosions or the roar. Some of them explained that it was a series of explosions, twenty or thirty of them strung together Their descriptions ran from a rocket’s engine to an artillery shell flying over.
From Nephi, the object traveled to the northwest, toward Eureka, Which is about thirty miles away. It flew over Bob Robinson and Floyd Evans. According to Robinson, they were traveling south of Eureka when they stopped for a moment and climbed out of their pickup truck. Robinson saw the light in the southeast and pointed it out. Evans thought that it was a jet aircraft.
The object approached them rapidly and passed directly overhead. Robinson said that he thought it was no higher than five hundred feet. It was a flaming object, and he thought he could see a series of square windows on the craft almost hidden in the glow of it.
Robinson said that both men were frightened by the experience. They dived under the truck for protection. The engine of the truck began to sputter and run roughly as the object approached, and the headlights dimmed, but the engine didn’t stall and the lights didn’t go out completely.
As it reached them, the object seemed to slow, as if taking a look at the truck. Robinson thought the object or the light from it was visible for about two minutes. As it disappeared in the west, the lights of the truck brightened and the engine smoothed out, running normally.
When Robinson returned home, his wife, Betty, said that he looked as if he had seen a ghost. His face was white, and he was so excited that it was hard for her to understand what he was trying to say.
She was able to tell him about her sighting. While sitting in the house, she had heard the roar of the object as it passed over, and had seen the light. The interior of the house had been brightly illuminated with a strobing effect.
She wasn’t alone in her sighting. Joseph Benini, the police chief, said that he was at a city council meeting when they all heard the roar. Bernini said that it sounded like an artillery shell going over He saw the bright light but didn’t see any object. He had been inside the whole time.
As the object flew over Eureka, the street lights all went out. Bernini, interviewed by reporters, said that the street lights were on photoelectric cells and the bright light caused them to go out. According to him, no one else reported any power failures.
Bernini’s wife and son saw the light, but the son, David, also saw an object. Those who did see the object confirmed the direction. It was moving from southeast to northwest.
Many of those who saw it said that it was within a thousand feet of the ground. There was an object visible behind the glow, and Shields, the pilot, had said that he not only saw the glow but also the object. The important fact was that Shields was looking down when he saw it.
Kadesch, when asked, said that he believed the object was a bolide and that it had exploded sixty to seventy miles in the air. The flash was so bright that residents of Gridley, Kansas, reported seeing it. Others, such as witnesses in Reno, also claimed to have seen the flash.
Kadesch took it further, explaining that the people on the ground, looking up into the night sky, had no points of reference. It was difficult for them to judge size and distance, especially if they didn’t know exactly what they were seeing.
Kadesch, who hadn’t seen the object himself, but whose family had, still said it was a bolide. There was no doubt in his mind. when asked about the flight crews who reported the object below their aircraft, he said, “That information is too fragmentary. It could be the curvature of the earth that made them believe that.”
But in Reno there was an added complication. A witness there, Homer Raycraft, said that he saw a “big fireball traveling due east.” He claimed that the object disappeared behind a mountain range and then there was a big flash.
Others in Reno, such as Dwight Dyer, Reno bureau chief of the Associated Press, the controllers in the Reno airport control tower, along with the controllers in Elko and Las Vegas, also reported they saw the flash. It was described as a brilliant white with a long tail, changing to green, orange, and red.
Another aircrew also saw the object. According to officers at Stead Air Force Base, a Bonanza Air Lines pilot said that the light passed beneath his aircraft, which was flying at eleven thousand feet. That made two flight crews in two different aircraft who had reported the object below their planes. Coupled with the testimony of three witnesses in Utah who said the object was about five hundred feet above them, it tended to rule out the bolide theory because the meteor would have been too low for too long.
Another problem developed when all the material from the Reno newspaper was reviewed. The newspaper contained a drawing showing the path of the object as it passed over Nevada. The problem is that the drawing showed it traveling from the north, over a corner of Nevada, to crash to the ground near Eureka, Utah.
It was traveling, according to the Nevada witnesses, in a direction opposite that claimed by the Utah witnesses. Had the object been a fireball, everyone would have given it the same direction of flight. Those in Nevada would have been looking to the east when they saw it, but they would have talked about it moving in the same general direction as those who had sighted the UFO in Utah.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the object was seen over Reno and traveling to the east. It also reported that the light was seen in Las Vegas. The question becomes, how is that possible for a meteorite?
An air force spokesman at Nellis Air Force Base said that meteors are not normally tracked by radar. The ionized trail left by them is sometimes detected, but that is a streak on the scope and not a single moving point as described by the military operators in Las Vegas.
How do we know that the object seen in Las Vegas is the same one that was reported in Utah and over Reno? It looked as if we had two sightings: one over Las Vegas on April 18, and one over Utah on April 19. With two sightings, there isn’t all that much unusual to explain. A meteor fell near Eureka, Utah, and something else tracked on radar near Las Vegas.
But I knew that wasn’t quite right. I had talked to a man, who wishes to remain anonymous, who was in Eureka, Utah, on the night the “meteor” fell. He was driving through town and watched the glowing orange ball. He saw it close to the ground, but then saw it take off again. It knocked out the lights all over Eureka, before climbing out again. Something that a meteor could not do.
He was close enough to the object to see an oval shape and to hear a quiet whirring noise. It took off toward the west, heading into Nevada. He watched it until it faded from sight over Nevada.
The point here is that there was a witness who had seen the object come down near Eureka as had others. But unlike them, he had seen it lift off again, streaking toward the west. It suggested that the object hadn’t ended its flight in Utah. Linked to the reports in Nevada, it suggested that a single object was responsible for all the sightings.
The air force, which had received all the findings, initially did the same thing, linking the reports. Officers at Stead Air Force Base, Nellis Air Force Base, and NORAD all drew that conclusion. The reports from Utah and Reno claim the sighting was made about fifteen minutes after the hour (Utah, on Mountain Standard Time, reported the incident at 8:15. Reno, on Pacific Standard Time, reported it at 7:15).
The Nellis radar case, according to the official air force file, listed the time of the sighting as sixteen minutes after the events in Utah, but the official spokesman at Nellis said the Air Defense Command was alerted by the fire trail that was seen at approximately 7:20 P.M., Pacific Standard Time, or within minutes of the reports from Utah.
More importantly, fighters were scrambled from Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix after the radar sightings. Other documents included in the Project Blue Book files suggested that fighters had also been scrambled from Nellis.
Another point must be made. The reports, as filed in Project Blue Book, were deceptively dated. The Utah case had the time logged in “Zulu,” or Greenwich Mean Time, which means it was advanced at that time of the year by six hours. Add six hours to the 8:15 time, and you advance it to early morning the next day.
A quick glance at the file shows the Utah case dated April 19, and the Las Vegas case logged in local time as April 18. On paper it looks as if they take place on separate days when, in reality, they happened within minutes of each other on the same day.
There are other interesting notes in the official files. A spokesman for the 28th Air Division at Stead Air Force Base admitted the power in Eureka was knocked out and that fighters had been scrambled from Nellis as a result of the radar sightings there.
Then, on September 21, 1962, Major C. R. Hart of the air force public information office, responding to a letter sent by a New York resident, claimed:
The official records of the Air Force list the 18 April 1962 Nevada sighting to which you refer as “unidentified, insufficient data.” There is an additional note to the effect that “the reported track is characteristic of that registered by a U-2 or a high balloon but there is insufficient data reported to fully support such an evaluation.” The phenomena reported was not intercepted or fired upon.
Not intercepted? With reports in the files that clearly showed fighters were scrambled from Nellis and other reports of jets taking off from Luke?
What about the explanation that the reported track was characteristic of a balloon or a U-2? Which was it? A balloon track would be made at the whim of the wind, “flying” in the direction the wind was blowing, changing direction as it passed from one level to another.
A U-2, under intelligent control of a pilot, wouldn’t be flying an erratic pattern. Surely the radar operator would have been able to tell if he was tracking a balloon or a jet.
The response to the man’s letter was a lie, pure and simple. The evidence in the file showed that. But more important is the fact that the air force was claiming that the object might have been a U-2 or a high-altitude balloon. The reason they couldn’t pin it down was that there were no records of such a flight or balloon launch.
They were grasping at straws. Might have been a balloon. Could have been a high-flying U-2 spy plane. But it wasn’t either. Remember, there was a follow-up that claimed the object was so bright that it affected the photoelectric cells on the Eureka street lights. That is a good, logical explanation for the reported power outage, but doesn’t account for all the facts. The lights in Nephi, according to Raymond Jackson, were knocked out.
Photoelectric cells fooled by the brightness of the object do not account for that. And near Eureka, Bob Robinson reported that his truck engine and headlights were affected by the overflight of the object.” It seems that the UFO was displaying the same kind of electromagnetic effect that had been reported in dozens of other UFO cases.
So what do we have here? We have the story of an object that was seen to begin its journey over Oneida, New York. It was seen by thousands. In Utah it neared the ground, landed, and took off not on April 19 as claimed by the air force, but on April 18. It was close enough to the ground that people in the center of Utah got a good look at it.
It maneuvered while close to the ground, slowing down and speeding up. The witnesses in several Utah communities centered around the Eureka and Nephi areas thought that it landed. One witness reported it on the ground and then taking off. It continued its journey until it was close to Reno, then turned to the southeast, flew over Las Vegas, where it was tracked on radar, and then blew up.
Documentation for the sighting is available through a variety of newspapers, including the Las Vegas Sun, Los Angeles Tribune, Desert News and Telegram, Salt Lake Tribune, Eureka Reporter and Nephi News-Leader. Further documentation came from the Project Blue Book files and Frank Edwards.
It is a case that demonstrates the air force’s policy of explaining UFO sightings, even if they have to change dates to make the explanations wok. It shows that the air force would lie to the public about the UFO situation. And it shows that air force investigators, when handed a solution, wouldn’t ask the basic questions. They accepted the solution quickly.
That means that the officer handing out the U-2 or balloon explanations would know that all flights above fourteen thousand feet were tracked carefully. And he would know that U-2s aren’t like a privately owned Piper Cub or Cessna that operates below the critical altitude of fourteen thousand feet Flights are planned and logged, and those records still exist if there had been a U-2 flight in that area, the air force could have proved it.
And the same thing can be said for the high-altitude balloons. By 1962 they were tracked religiously. With so many commercial aircraft using the skies, the military couldn’t af ford to have a passenger plane fly into a research balloon. They knew where the balloons were and what tracks they took. The radar sighting might suggest a high-altitude balloon or U-2, but that isn’t the solution. Finally, the air force files connect the two events, though they eventually separated the reports in Las Vegas from those in Utah. On a page in the file that appears prior to the intelligence report prepared by Douglas Crouch, an unknown officer wrote:
On April 18, 1962, the Air Force Defense Command was puzzled by an aerial object that exploded and seemed to be a meteor, but had the unique distinction of being tracked by radar 70 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada in a blinding flash. An Air Force Defense Command alert reported the object was tracked and traced over New York, Kansas, Utah, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Wyoming, Arizona and California, so that its light covered almost as much area as that created by the big hydrogen space bomb test held later in the Pacific hundreds of miles high.
That notation is not in the Las Vegas file, but in the Utah file. And it suggests that radars in other parts of the country from New York to California tracked the object. The flight time, according to the Las Vegas sighting report, was thirty- two minutes, much too long for a meteor. A meteor would cross the United States much faster. And it means that the object, whatever it was, was not a meteor.
With the cases separated, the air force was able to deal with them piece-meal. The Utah case could become a bolide. Robert Kadesch, a scientist not involved with the UFO project at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or the Foreign Technology Division, made a plausible witness. His statement, reported throughout the country, sounded good, when the testimony of the other witnesses is overlooked.
It is easy to accept the Air Force explanations of the case if they are taken as separate events. It is easy to believe that the Utah sightings were the result of a meteor, although the original investigators, Crouch and Brion, said that they had no explanation for the sightings.
This also reveals that the air force was not interested in investigation or solving riddles. They were interested in clearing cases, slapping a label on them and letting it go at that. We know it because they interviewed the Utah witnesses such as Bob Robinson and Floyd Evans.
They interviewed a dozen witnesses, some of whom described the object and who said it was close to the ground. They knew that power had been knocked out in Nephi but reported only that the light was so bright it affected the photoelectric cells in Eureka. They ignored the information that didn’t fit with the bolide theory.
Something extremely extraordinary happened on the night of April 18, 1962. The air force offered a series of explanations ignoring the facts. But the witnesses who were there know the truth. They saw something from outer space, and it was not a meteor. It was a craft from another world. NOTE: The above image real but from another case file.
At midday on June 10, 1967, Harold Trudel pulled to the side of West Wrentham Road near East Woonsocket, Rhode Island. The 29-year-old man reputedly had seen unidentified objects in the area before, and on this day he was determined to document them. According to his account, he didn’t have to wait long, as a metallic, dome-shaped object soon approached. As the UFO hovered over the power lines, Trudel snapped pictures for about five minutes. He captured seven images, which would become some of the most iconic UFO photos of their day.
We got another UFO sighting on our hands here in L.A., folks — but this one stands alone, as it offers some the best clear shots we’ve seen of what appears … well, you make the call.
An eyewitness shot these photos last Saturday while heading south on the 101 Freeway, just outside of Thousand Oaks as she was approaching Westlake Village around sunset. We’re told she was on her phone when she saw this thing hovering in the sky, flying in the same direction she was heading … with a group of lights trailing behind it.
The eyewitness says she shot three consecutive photos as quickly as she could, and as you can see … the unidentified object appears to have changed positions, both tilting ever so slightly and moving to a new spot in the sky. We’re told this UFO was only visible for a few seconds, before it literally vanished into thin air. We know … far-fetched, right?
That’s what we thought too — but we’ve been assured these photos are NOT altered, and they show what they show. We were skeptical — thinking these could’ve been tweaked in Photoshop — so we had one of our art gurus take a closer look to see what she thought.
Turns out, our own photoshop wiz seems to agree … these don’t look like fakes.
Our graphic artist tried an experiment with stock images of “glowing discs,” “UFO’s” and “flying saucers” … to see if the images could be manipulated in a similar fashion as the tipster’s photos. She concluded it would be hard to cut/paste these images with the exact angles of the tipster’s images. So, these photos do appear to be legit … or at the very least, probably not photoshopped.
We also reverse image searched these pics, BTW, and couldn’t track down ANY that were exactly the same — so again, it lends credence to the idea these were taken on the spot, without being doctored after the fact.
So, where does that lead us in the end??? Welp, depends on what you want to believe. On its face, this looks to be a straight-up UFO sighting. IF that is in fact the case — who woulda thought Hollywood had it right all along in its depictions?!?
HI Ken : I was watching the live Torbay NCI webcam, wishing I could be there in person looking out for any strange UFO activity. I had been watching the webcam for about 10 minutes when to my surprise I spotted two sphere shaped objects that flew down from the sky heading towards the sea. I didn’t hesitate I quickly took a screen capture, only just managing to capture the sphere’s just before they went into the water and disappeared from view. In the captured image you can see the two sphere’s over by Thatcher Rock. The first sphere seems to be matching the colour of the water, while the second sphere is matching the colour of the sky behind it, while reflecting the sun. It is common knowledge in the intelligent community that these objects have adaptive camouflage and are able to match the colour of the surrounding area making them much harder to see.
It’s very fortunate that they were captured by this webcam. I really wanted to go to Torbay and visit Daddyhole Plain in order to carry out a thorough investigation of the whole area but unfortunately I was unable to due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, which were still in place. It was just sheer luck that I had been watching the webcam right at that moment, allowing me to capture the sphere’s in a screen grab just before they had entered the water and disappeared from view. The image was captured at 1:37 pm on the 25th of February 2021 on the Live Torbay NCI webcam at England. All the best John. Check out the webcam at https://torbaynci.org/index.php/torbaynci-web-cam/
In the mid-1960s a sleepy Wiltshire town became the unlikely epicenter of a UFO phenomenon. Warminster, in West Wiltshire, became known globally for what was enigmatically called “The Thing”. The Thing took many forms by those who claimed to have observed it between 1965 and 1977. The first sign of The Thing was during the Christmas of 1964, when residents heard a loud, unidentifiable whine. The strange sightings were reported in the Warminster Journal. Local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood was instrumental in making the phenomenon national news and in one year more than 1000 sightings of unidentified flying objects were recorded.
They continued to be seen on a regular basis between 1965 and 1977, and in many ways formed a key chapter of the 1960s . Although there have been few sightings in recent years, Warminster is still seen by many as synonymous with UFOs. With the army based on nearby Salisbury Plain, Warminster is well known as a military town. This gave rise to the theory that visitors from outer space could very well have been mistaken military aircraft. But believers shrugged off this theory believing that the military were one of the reasons Warminster had been chosen for visitations. Whatever the reason for the coming of The Thing, it has certainly put Warminster on the map.
In the early 1960’s we lived in Kansas. We were small children then had a house on the North End of Great Bend, on the North end of Morton Street.
One night in 1964 or 65, I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a ‘white cube’ that glowed like a light bulb. It had a red light glowing on the inside of it. There are or were quite a few radio towers in the area and one huge TV 2 tower farther to the North.
The ‘cube shaped thing’ flew around that radio tower like a moth flies around a light bulb, only slower than a moth and it never hit the tower. Also, the red light was fading on an off like the tower light. Now, I believe the object was trying to communicate with the tower. When I first saw the object I was transfixed like a deer in headlights!
I ran to get my dad but like most dads, he said not to bother him, so I ran back to the kitchen yelling for my two brothers to come. When I got back to the window it was still flying near the tower.
Just before my brothers got to the window it traveled across the field towards me. It started hovering around 75 feet above the ground and was approximately 200 yards away. That’s when my two brothers joined me at the window and started asking, “What is that, what is that?”
It spun so fast that it morphed into a spinning ball and appeared as a white streak as it shot almost straight up angling towards the North West and was gone. We were very excited at witnessing how it zoomed away. “That was fast, really fast!”, reverberated in the room.
At the North end of the street was a wheat field, then to the North edge of that about one mile is the Dry Walnut Creek and on the North edge of that was the radio tower. The radio tower was around one and a quarter mile from the kitchen window where I first saw it. The 15 houses on our street, including ours, lined up along the wheat field East and West.
Years ago a man asked me about the sighting. He showed me a lot of pictures of UFO’s and asked if the object looked like any of them? When I said ‘No”, he suddenly wore a strange expression on his face. I have no idea who he was. All I know is that he was someone my dad knew. I would like to ask him where he got the pictures and if this sighting was some sort of simulation.
The object was very clear, a perfect shaped cube – not at all blurry. As it flew around the tower it really tumbled and then sped across the field at 100 to 150 mph, rolled a little, but as it hovered it stayed on a perfectly flat plane and slowly turned.
It glistened: not bright like a 100 watt light bulb but still glowing. The light was uniform throughout the object. The red light inside the craft disappeared after a few seconds, then it spun into a ball and left.
As I mentioned the object was cube-shaped and reminds me now of the Star Trek Borg ships. I would like to know where the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, got the idea for that cube ship, although, the only similarity between my sighting and the Borg cube was its shape. I believe we saw the object because we are not alone on this planet. Whatever we saw flying around that radio tower still intrigues me today!
The way the craft moved makes me believe it was under intelligent control. It maneuvered deliberately from field to field, sped up and slowed down and changed height. It was the size of a small box truck: 20 feet wide by 20 feet long. Today, I believe that the craft was just curious as if it had just discovered us by perhaps following the TV signal with the sub carrier wave to its source. This is a true story and I wanted to share it. Sighting was reported by Wade Meyer. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
William Blackburn, a resident of Waynesboro, Virginia, was working at the Augusta County Archery Club off Route 250, near Brand’s Flats, when at approximately 5:40 PM, on January 19, 1965, he saw two objects in the sky.
One of these UFOs, the smaller of the two, descended to the ground and landed approximately 18 yards from the witness. From it emerged three beings of extraordinary appearance, each about three feet high.
They were dressed in clothes of the same shiny, peculiar color as the object. One had an extremely long finger on one Band. The beings’ eyes were particularly penetrating: according to the witness, “they seemed to look through you.”
As the creatures approached the witness, to within 12 yards, he froze in fright, a double-edged axe in his hand. After uttering some unintelligible sounds, the beings turned and reentered the object through a door that appeared to “mold itself into the ship.”
The object then ascended and disappeared.
Following the appearance of Blackburn’s account in the local press, the witness told of being visited by members of a government agency whom he would not identify, although he said he was told not to say anything further about his sighting.
In an investigation conducted by Richard Hall and several NICAP staff members, strong evidence was found to support the witness’ report of being silenced.
In spite of this, the investigators were able to secure some additional details on the sighting. The area of the reported sighting is close to Fishersville, Va., the site of another landing (but with no reported occupants) which had occurred less than a month before. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I had braved it outside to sky watch even though It was bitterly cold and after about 20 minutes I was getting ready to go back inside the house to warm up, when I noticed an object in the sky that was off to the west. At first it was moving around erratically before it started to move in a intelligently controlled manner. I looked at it through my binoculars and I could see that the object was some type of structured craft which had two sphere’s on the top of it. There was a strange haze around the craft as it moved through the air which I thought was probably due to the cold air around it. I put down my binoculars and quickly took a photograph with my Sony HX-300 camera and then began to zoom in on the craft for a close up, but before I could the structured craft flew off at incredible speed which caused me to lose sight of it. I was left feeling very confused as to what I had just witnessed. What could this structured craft have been? I would really like to know what these strange aerial objects are and why they are so prevalent in the sky around this area. The photograph was taken at 4:01 PM on the 16th of February 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
Location of Sighting: Moultrie, Georgia Date of Sighting: February 9, 2021 Time of Sighting: 10:16 AM EST
I was at our local Walmart. I always take pictures of the sky. I noticed a circular opening in the clouds and went to take a picture of it. I took 3 pictures back to back. The first picture captured this object. I did not see it with my eyes and I didn’t realize I caught it until I went to review the photos. I tried replicating this taking at least 50 photos to ensure it wasn’t an artifact. I was completely still when takimg the photos and whatever this was had to moving. It seems to have came straight out of the clouds downwards leaving a light trail. It had to be moving extremely fast. I enhanced the photos and you can also see some type of patern on the lower part of the object. Almost like sections and some kind of markings.
Note: This is an unusual photo. The “disk shaped” object could be an artifact, but the witness took other photos and the object wasn’t present. This suggests that the object may have been present and then zipped away.
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden looking through my high powered zoom binoculars when I spotted a strange structured craft that was off to the west and was quite far away in the distance but, still discernible. It was moving diagonally through a cloud and I could see that the craft was metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off of it’s surface. It definitely wasn’t anything conventional and that’s why it had caught my attention. I put my binoculars down on the garden table and picked up my Nikon P900 camera. I then zoomed in on the craft and immediately took a photograph just before it flew up through the clouds and disappeared into the atmosphere. I was ecstatic I had once again captured a very compelling photograph of an alien craft high above the town. This is another genuine U.A.P. that I have managed to capture. It really is rather unfortunate that people don’t believe me when I have taken the time to submit my photographs to them. All the people who don’t believe me should come here to Newton Abbot when lockdown has ended to sky watch for a few hours just like I do every day. Then they would also see these strange aerial craft. The problem is that debunkers won’t put the time or effort into researching this topic, instead they sit at their computers spending hours on social media slandering and discrediting real UFO researchers like me who are genuine and are trying there best to get a real understanding of what is going on with this phenomena. These craft are real and are very prevalent around this area due to the town’s close proximity to the moors and the sea. I have been researching this topic for a very long time now and I know for a fact that these alien craft are coming out of the sea and flying up to the moors where they are mutilating sheep and pony’s for soft genetic material. The true purpose of why they are collecting this genetic material still remains a mystery, but I surmise that these beings are growing body’s so they can move more of their kind from there dimension over to our physical plane of existence. The photograph was taken at 11:39 AM on the 29th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
KENS NOTE: John Mooner is my Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos. He surely lives in a UFO hot spot and has submitted hundreds of alien craft photos over the years.
Robert Campbell, Patrolman Peter McCollum, Sherman TX; Aug 2, 1965. 3 AM: “… a glowing UFO hovered near Sherman, TX. Broadcasting stations, police, and other agencies had been flooded with reports for hours. Television cameraman Robert Campbell was out with Patrolman Peter McCollum, interviewing witnesses and watching the objects for themselves.
Campbell took a still picture of the hovering UFO. A two minute time exposure while he and the police officer watched the thing. The picture was overexposed, possibly due to the brilliance of the UFO…”
“… I investigated ‘on-location’ at Sherman, TX… was photographed by television newsman Bob Campbell… He had been monitoring police calls on his radio and he left his home at 3:00 AM, armed with a 4×5 Speed Graphic and Tri-X film, to photograph the strange light he had heard reported on the police radio.
“Shortly after midnight a news photographer for a local television station, heard on his short wave radio, two police highway patrols discuss reports of an UFO tracked on radar and streaking towards the Texas border.
“The photographer took his 4×5 Speed Graphic camera and drove into town, where he met the Chief of Police. Together the two men searched for the object, and soon sighted it hanging stationary thirteen miles east of Sherman, on Highway 82.
“Its outline was clearly defined in the north-eastern sky, and the photographer set up his camera. He took four exposures, two minutes each at three-minute intervals. The negatives have been carefully examined by Air Force scientific advisers and by astronomical experts. No acceptable explanation has been found for the object recorded on the negatives. It must be considered a UFO.”
“The remarkable aspect of this particular incident is that, having been alerted by the same radio broadcast, several other individuals were also watching the object. Campbell and McCollum were one mile east of Bells, OK.
Highway patrolman Bill Quires was watching from Durant, 30 mi north of Bells, and Department of Public Safety Dispatcher Jim Faglia was watching from a point seven miles south of Sherman, thus precluding the possibility that the object could have been a planet or a star.”
The object’s shape was a cylinder with “Mercury capsule” shape at one end, possibly rounded at other end. Several distinct bands around diameter of cylinder, with disc shaped “bosses” on surface. Bands of luminosity.
An extrusion of luminosity from one band, and an ejection of an unknown material accompanied the object.
Tulsa, Oklahoma; August 3, 1965. The Tulsa Oklahoma photographic case is an extremely interesting one in that we have one excellent photograph of a multi-colored object which fails to resemble any known flying object, past or present.
The events leading to the taking of the picture were as follows:
At about 1:30 AM, Mr. A. L. Smith, accompanied by his 14 year old son Alan, and three other witnesses , were captivated with watching an unusual, multi-colored UFO.
Mr. Smith was a turbine engine specialist, working with American Airlines.
The unknown object seemed to be slowly moving toward the five witnesses. Still some several hundred yards away, it paused briefly and hovered.
At that precise moment, Alan snapped a photograph with his inexpensive camera, using ASA 64 film. Alan decided not to try for a second shot.
He took his camera inside the house, and ran back outside just in time to see the object rapidly flying away into the night sky.
His picture was extensively analyzed, pronounced authentic, and later published by Life magazine and many newspapers.
