A slender but massive in length ship flew from E to W. Entire craft was dimly lit almost like a glow so you could see the entire craft from front to rear. There was one noticeably brighter light on the side towards the back of the craft but otherwise it was a consistent soft light, almost made it seem partially translucent. It took about 5-6 minutes to cover the sky. It appeared to be several hundred feet in length but very narrow too to bottom. My wife, son and I watched it until it disappeared on the horizon. My wife and son tried to film it but it wouldn’t show on their phones. We will try to see if we can enhance the footage to get it to show up.
The following account has been addressed several times before, and I have had it in my notes for quite some time. The recent interest in the Space program, and questions about our future goals in space have caused me to dust it off. I believe it will be of interest to our viewers.
This extraordinary story comes to us from one Karl Wolfe. Wolfe worked for the Director of Intelligence at Headquarters Tactical Air Command, Technical Group. The fantastic events explained here occurred while he was stationed at Langley Field, Virginia.
Langley Field was center for information received from the Lunar Orbiter Project. Satellite receivers from around the world waited for information from the Orbiter, and it was then channeled to Langley, where the information was transformed into photographic images, and other top-secret data.
The photographic imaging was done at a secure military lab ran by NSA. In an interview for UFO magazine, Wolfe asserted that he was one of only two technicians at Langley with high enough security clearance to work with the high-tech photographic equipment which processed info from U-2 spy planes, and other military intelligence hardware.
Wolfe, in his own words:
… At any rate, I was in a color lab one day when my boss, Staff Sergeant Taylor, came over to me and said that they were having a problem with some equipment on the base an it was the first lunar orbiter program, where thy had a mission to pretty much locate the first landing sites for the 1969 lunar mission for the astronauts.
So he said they were having some problem with equipment over there. it was similar equipment to what we had- it was computerized contact printing equipment. He wanted to know if I would go over and take a look at it. He said to me, It’s an NSA facility. At the time, I didn’t Know what the NSA was–I was pretty naive.
I thought he said NASA. So in my mind, for a long time I thought it was a NASA facility that I had gone to, but I remembered him saying NSA and converting it in my own mind to NASA…
Wolfe claims that one day when NSA photographic equipment failed, he was called in to assist them with the critical repair work needed to keep the machines on the job. Coincidentally, Wolfe was the only individual available at the time trained in the type of equipment that had failed. He normally would be crossing lines by venturing into NSA territory.
His security clearance status was raised to enable him to even enter the highly secure laboratory.
Wolfe’s heart raced as he entered the here-to-fore forbidden hangar that day, and he was shocked to see the frantic activity in the lab, activities carried out by individuals of many different nations.
Wolfe had naturally thought that only American citizens would be in the NASA lab, but there were many individuals with guest name tags on, and obviously from foreign countries present this day, inferring that they were there on a temporary basis for some special occasion.
He felt a sense of panic as to his mission. Whatever he was called in for was of the utmost importance. He was told that the equipment in question was in a nearby dark room.
As he was led into the room, only the red glow of a safety light greeted him at first, but in a moment, he could make out the figure of one airman who manned the dark room.
Wolfe knew that the image processing equipment would have to be removed to be repaired, and he also knew that the diagnostics on this type of equipment would take some time to finish.
Arrangements were quickly made for the photographic equipment to be taken to another secure location for Wolfe to begin the painstaking task of troubleshooting the problem. As Wolfe waited for transport to arrive, he began to chat with the other airman. Wolfe carefully asked why the NASA work was being done at Langley and not NASA in Houston.
It was then that he was told that all of the NASA image information was downloaded to Langley, enhanced and made into the finished photographs that were then studied by different branches of the Armed Forces. The dark room attendant began to explain to Wolfe just what all the secrecy was about.
Wolfe was told that recent enhanced images had surprisingly, yet clearly shown structures on the surface of the dark side of the Moon. Structures that definitely were not created by natural means, such as meteors, or ancient collisions with other heavenly bodies. The structures were created by intelligent beings.
“We discovered,” the airman said, “a base of the back side of the Moon.”
Wolfe was obviously stunned by this extraordinary disclosure. He remembers literally “shaking” trying to take in the enormity of what he had been told. Seeing Wolfe’s disbelief, the dark room attendant continued;
“Yes, a base on the dark side of the Moon.”
Although the attendant had not actually said that the structures were not created by inhabitants of Earth, it seemed to go without saying. Wolfe was still in amazement as he was now looking down at the very photographs he was trying to envision in his mind.
Bending down under the red glowing lamp, he was seeing what so very few would see. He could clearly make out geometric shapes, well organized, and well designed.
Most noticeable to him were what looked exactly like radar antennas, very similar to what one could see on Earth.
There was no doubt now in Wolfe’s mind why the odd complement of scientists and investigators were in attendance at this place on this day. They had arrived to see and study what he was looking at now; structures made by intelligent beings on the Moon.
Questions flooded his mind now; Could Russia have made these structures, putting the first flag on the lunar surface? Could this be a joint venture of some kind? If so, by whom? Americans and aliens? Whomever was the creator, Wolfe felt like he had been caught stealing, or with his hand in the cookie jar. He was NOT supposed to see these photographs.
He could be arrested, or worse. He just wanted to do his job, leave, and never mention it again. Wolfe did finish the job he was commissioned to do, keeping the memories of that day dormant in his mind, and went on with his life.
Wolfe, however, was haunted by the images he saw that day for many years to come. After he left the active service, his security clearance prohibited him from leaving the United States for five years, and he was sworn to keep what he had seen to himself.
It would be thirty years before he told anyone about that unforgettable day.
For the year that Wolfe saw the remarkable structures on the dark side of the Moon was 1965, four years before Neil Armstrong put the first footprint on the lunar surface. Or was it the first? NOTE: The above image is real but from Russia’s luna-17 mission to the Moon.
The information contained within this email and accompanying photography was given to me by my late father, I have no way of proving that any of what is contained within this email is true or false, all I can say is that my father was a serious man, a man of integrity and extremely honest and was not a liar.
My dad worked for the United States Air Force all of his life until he retired, it was only many years after his retirement and when he was in his later years that he told me this truly incredible story and showed me the photographs. He told me he worked as part of a small team who conducted top secret scientific research and that he worked on many highly classified deep black military programs and projects, most of which are still classified to this day.
One day in the spring of 1948 one of his colleagues pulled him to one side and said “get your shit together, something big’s going down.” He and his team were flown to an airforce base in Nevada, from there they were then flown by helicopter to a remote area were they were told to get onto a large bus with blacked out windows and along with roughly 30 other passengers they were driven to within 2 miles of the location, whilst on the bus everyone was ordered to remain silent.
When they got of the bus he and his team were then escorted to a mountainous area on foot which was very heavily guarded by armed soldiers, when he arrived at the final destination he said they were confronted with a very large metallic flying saucer shaped craft.
He said they were told that the craft had landed and had been there for some time and that the military had managed to gain access to the saucer by using diamond tipped drills. He and his team were taken inside the craft, he said it was unlike anything they had ever seen, nothing like any kind of conventional aircraft, no seats, levers, dials or instruments or anything like that was visible, he said it was like the whole interior was made out of some form of grey wax material, he said it was a very peculiar and a very eerie sight.
Inside the craft he said he saw 5 dead aliens, he described them as been about 4 to 4 and a half feet tall with grey hairless spindly bodies with large heads, huge black almond shaped eyes, no ears and tiny mouths, he said it wasn’t apparent as to how they had died as they appeared to have no injuries, what his team found very fascinating and very strange was that they were all huddled together on the floor and it looked like they were almost organically attached to the grey wax material, almost as if they were plants growing from within it, he said it was a very peculiar and a very bizarre sight, he said there was also a terrible smell which no one could describe.
A small metallic bottle was also beside them which contained what looked like an unknown thick purple liquid. Eventually a retrieval team was put into place and the craft and it’s dead occupants was flown out to a top secret location, my dad said he and his team were later briefed by military intelligence officers and were told that what they saw and worked on was nothing more than a top secret Russian remote controlled aircraft and the creatures were dummies, they were all sworn to secrecy and ordered never to speak about it to anyone. My dad said he can be seen stood in in front of the saucer on the photos, showing just how big this thing was.
12 months later the same thing happened again, only this time the location was Arizona. My dad told me it happened in the summer of 1949 and the set up was exactly the same as last time, flight, helicopter, blacked out bus, etc and finally they were confronted with what they were told was another landed Russian aircraft.
This time he and his team were confronted with a different style of craft, but saucer-shaped just like the last one and slightly smaller but still a huge metallic flying saucer by any stretch of the imagination.
He told me the craft had some sort of force field or energy field around it (see photo) and that no one could get close to it and everyone was ordered to keep their distance, only after 2 full days did the force field finally turn itself off.
It was at this point that attempts were made by the military to gain access into the the saucer, all without success, apparently they even tried explosives but nothing would penetrate it, they couldn’t even make a scratch or a dent in the thing, he told me they climbed up a ladder and looked through the portholes and the craft looked almost identical inside to the last saucer they saw, no kind of visible instrumentation could be seen and the interior looked very similar to the last craft, completely covered in some sort of whitish wax material, 9 tiny seats could be seen arranged in a semi-circle, my dad said they looked like the size of chairs that you would expect to see at an infant school, tiny.
Roughly half a mile away there was a large military tent, when my dad and his team entered into it he said there was 7 dead aliens on the floor, all lying on a large sheet of military camouflage material, the creatures were almost identical to the aliens he saw last time, except this time all the creatures were all wearing what looked like one piece tight fitting silver space suits with what looked like skull caps on their heads, my dad said there was strange symbols on the suits which were completely indecipherable.
It appeared that the occupants had been out and about and walking around doing something and for some unknown reason had all just dropped dead, 3 of the occupants were carrying a small silver metallic rod with a small red light on the end of it, it was unclear whether these were some kind of instrument or weapon, what was strange was that all the creatures appeared to be frothing at the mouth and a hardened white froth could clearly be seen coming from to noses and mouths of all of the dead creatures.
My dad said that the craft and its deceased occupants was taken to Wright-Patterson Air Force base by a retrieval team, he said he and his team saw that exact same craft 3 years later in a large hanger when they were working at that air force base. Again my dad said he and his team were given the same spill as last time by military intelligence officers about what they saw been nothing more than a top secret Russian experimental spy craft and the deceased occupants been nothing more than dummies.
In early July of 1952 (just before the Washington DC UFO flap occurred) my dad and his team were working in California conducting and carrying out what he said was an ultra secret black project. He told me that he and his team witnessed a large metallic flying saucer suddenly appear in the sky from out of nowhere, apparently it landed on 3 tripod/telescopic style landing gear legs roughly 50 meters in front of them, then took off and flew off into the sky and disappeared at a high rate of speed, he said the saucer was also witnessed by 20 armed soldiers who were accompanying them on their mission.
I can only imagine that you find that story quiet incredible and remarkable and are probably skeptical? (Editor’s Note: Actually I’m not, I have at least half-dozen of these stories in my archive.) Don’t worry, when my dad told me I was like “yeah sure dad, that’s one hell of a whopper,” but when he showed me the photos and told me that it is 100 percent true, I knew he was telling the truth, plus what would he have to gain from making up such a tale? Absolutely nothing as he never told anyone about it except for me and mum.
If you find my father’s story and photographs interesting and think that your readers would also, then please be my guest and use it, if not then I am sorry for taking up some of your valuable time. It was one of my late father last wishes to finally tell his story and he asked me to find a way of getting it out there. I hope to hear back from you as soon as is possible.
After originally being very confused at what it could be. I came to the conclusion it was starlink. It does look like a series of lights. However the more I inspect the video the stranger that idea becomes. Throughout the video you’ll notice it’s actually slowly spinning in the sky and changing orientation. It appeared to be moving closer to me, appearing larger and brighter in the sky. Heading south then veering to the east before disappearing. There are a few instances of a shadow starting at one end of the “beam” and going across the pattern to the other side. Specifically at the 38 second mark I noticed it very clearly. I’m an amateur astronomer and look at the sky alot, but never saw anything like this… it very well could be starlink with some weird atmospheric visuals. But Holy crap in person it appeared to get closer to me and then changed direction. Most starlink videos I see look like and average everyday train of satellites moving in a straight line… this looked nothing how I imagine starlink.. but light can do some weird things traveling through thousands of ft of atmosphere? It did clearly appear larger and more overhead towards the end of the video. If you use the house as a reference. At the start I zoom in on it. By the end of the video I’m just about all the way zoomed out again.
MAY 4, 2021 ……………….SEATTLE WASHINGTON
A silent, linear in trajectory, bright object seemed to glide overhead coming in from the West headed South and emitting a hazy, almost candle-lit glow that illuminated the entirety of the object. It was silent as it slowly floated in the night sky above our heads. It took me four attempts before my phone would take a picture as the first three tries my phone seemed to have froze – black screen – then alerted me that I could not take any photos due to storage (which isn’t true) and finally my doggedness paid off…though it was nearly all but gone by the time I snapped a photo.
KENS NOTE: STARLINK was not launched this day. Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX providing satellite Internet access. The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, working in combination with ground transceivers.
The UFO in the photo to the left was seized by the U. S. government in the Boumount Ridge section of Jasper, Colorado, in the summer of 1956.
The government moved the flying saucer to a remote area called Wild Fork, where they ran tests on it, eventually figuring out how to fly this spaceship. The above photo was taken by a government official during one of the many test flights.
At sunset on July 17, 1956, Miles Oman, a farmer in Jasper, Colorado, was getting ready to call it a day. He was walking back to his house when this strange, oval-shaped object in the sky caught his eye. It looked like a spaceship. The object zipped across the sky and was gone.
This sighting kicked off one of the most amazing UFO incidents in the history of the world. For approximately two months, the town of Jasper and the surrounding areas experienced one unusual event after another.
Scientists rushed in to investigate, reporters rushed in looking for stories, and government officials rushed in to keep it a secret from the world.
Police were called to reports of strange behavior in Corrientes, Argentina, where they supposedly snapped the other-worldly being on a mobile phone.
Terrified teenagers alerted the authorities and reportedly pointed them towards the alien in a park.
The creature then fled into a nearby river where officers lost track of it, Express.co.uk reports. Conspiracist Terry Larch wrote: “This photograph is incredible and may be the best evidence of aliens living among us yet.
“Once the police arrived, they wandered over slowly, approaching this strange thing.
“They soon realised that this was no human but something else entirely.
“It appeared to be a rather traditional looking extraterrestrial being, typically seen in movies and drawings.”
Larch was taken aback by the alien’s features and striking appearance.
He added: “The shape and size of the alien is rather remarkable to see.
“It has the oval head shape and almond dark shaped eyes. Its hands appear to have only three fingers protruding outward.
Hello my name is Richard, I am writing to see if you might be interested in my true UFO story regarding an encounter with a flying saucer back in 1980? With recent claims regarding the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, I thought I would strike while the iron is hot, I have always intended to make my story available for public scrutiny before my death and I feel like the time is now right to do so.
Let me take you back to December 26TH 1980, a day that would ultimately change and ruin my life forever. It was a bitter cold night and as a serving police officer I was on duty. I was attending to a report of a possible domestic/disturbance/argument in the town of Woodbridge, located in Suffolk, 7 miles north-east of Ipswich in the East of England.
I was roughly about a quarter of a mile away from Woodbridge when for no apparent reason my police radio was suddenly swamped with interference, static electricity and crackling noises started to emerge from it, so I decided to pull my vehicle over to the side of the road and see if I could figure out what the problem was.
No sooner than I had stopped the vehicle there was an intensely bright flash of green light that lit up the whole interior of the car like a christmas tree. (see image)
Not sure what to make of what had just happened. I got out of the car to see if I could possibly figure out what caused it. Not really expecting to see anything I was completely shocked to discover a huge green-whitish, glowing, illuminated, phosphorescent disk/saucer shaped craft hovering directly above me in the sky, it was an incredible and unbelievable but frightening spectacle to witness, my skin started to tingle and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up.
The saucer was huge, slowly rotating and was making a quiet/soft whirring noise. As a police officer I always carried a polaroid camera in the boot of the police vehicle whenever on driving duties, it’s just something that I did.
I rushed to the boot and obtained my camera, I fired off three shots, I then stood there somewhat shaken and continued to view this object. After what felt like an eternity, but was no more than just over a minute or so, the saucer suddenly and without warning soared up high into the night sky at breathtaking and phenomenal speed and was literally gone and out of sight in a nanosecond, I was left standing there thinking to myself what the hell just happened?
Two of the photos came out completely fogged and showed absolutely nothing, but luckily one came out almost perfect and showed the saucer in all it’s glory, I have included that original and untouched polaroid with my email.
The time of my sighting was precisely 1.55 AM. It really was like something out of a star trek movie, to be honest, words are inadequate to even begin to try and explain just how fantastic and how mind blowing this encounter was, and the colour of the saucer, it was like no other green I have ever seen, the photo really doesn’t do it justice, dont get me wrong it’s a wonderful polaroid but to see that saucer hovering in the sky and the sheer size of it, and the phenomenal speed at which it departed, the two simply don’t compare, it was a truly mind blowing experience that no photograph could ever capture.
I had a very difficult time coming to terms with what I encountered on that December evening. Back then in 1980 there was no one to turn to, it’s not like it is today, what with the internet and a simple click of a few buttons and you are instantly online talking to support groups etc, it just wasn’t like that back then, plus I never wanted to tell anyone anyway, I mean would you?
And especially being a serving police officer it just simply wasn’t an option, so I just filed it away in the back of my mind and tried to get on with my life. That wasn’t to be though, soon after my encounter I started suffering with anxiety and panic attacks and clinical depression, I suffered terrible and frightening nightmares also and it wasn’t long before things started to destroy my marriage.
I took time off work but it didn’t help, all I did was drink myself into oblivion and sleep all day. Eventually I confided in my wife and decided to seek professional help. I ended up in therapy, I had a psychiatrist, I was on antidepressants, this whole UFO encounter turned my life upside down and eventually I had to leave the police force on medical grounds and unfortunately I have never worked another day since.
I have suffered with terrible physical and mental health problems ever since this thing happened and I know for a fact that all my health conditions are a direct result of my encounter with a flying saucer, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, not even my worst enemy.
That wasn’t the end of it, I also received menacing and threatening telephone calls, even death threats a few weeks after my encounter and a couple of months later my home was subjected to an attempted arson attack, my wife believed at the time that this was an attempt by someone to try and destroy my photographic evidence and intimidate me into keeping my mouth shut, it certainly was a very unsettling and frightening time.
I can tell you this also, several days after my encounter a very good friend of mine who was a high ranking senior police officer told me that he was visited at home by 3 men claiming to be military intelligence, he said he was simply TOLD in no uncertain terms that if anyone mentions the word UFO then simply tell them that they probably saw the lighthouse and simply tell them it was faulty at the time, he said they gave him other information but he wouldn’t disclose it to me.
I also heard quiet a few strange tales from members of the public in the months that followed my UFO sighting, none of them were ever reported for fear of ridicule, they may sound far fetched to most people but not to me, not after what I saw.
One man told me that on the 28TH December at 3AM he was awoken by his dog barking furiously at the back kitchen door, he said he opened the door and there was a small glowing orb hovering around his back garden, he said the orb shot off and his dog chased after it, suddenly it went silent and when he got around the corner of his garden the orb had fled and all that was left of his dog was a gooey puddle, he claimed his dog had been vaporized, I asked him if he reported it, he just looked at me and laughed and asked me if I was mad.
One woman told me that on the 26TH December at 2.30 AM she woke up and found herself in a forest staring at a glowing pyramid surrounded by several small humanoid entities, within seconds she claims she was suddenly back in her bed. I could tell you more incredible stories I heard and maybe one day when I have more time I will.
For all those individuals out there who simply think that the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident was nothing more than a flying lighthouse or can be explained away by some other ridiculous explanation, let me say this, spare a thought for all those who were caught up in this, it was real, it happened FACT, end of story.
Hopefully one day soon and especially within my lifetime, I hope that all the information the government have including photographic evidence is released and made available to the general public as we all have a right to know the facts and truth as to what really happened in Rendlesham Forest.
I can’t mention any names or say too much, but a very trusted source told me that there are still many witnesses to come forward with their evidence. That person also told me that everyone thinks that the visitors were looking for nuclear weapons, they told me that is complete nonsense and the true explanation is that the visitors had boots on the ground and were doing something in the forest, still yet unknown and one of their team was captured, killed, bagged and tagged by the military and shipped out to a secret location for analysis and to be studied and that’s the reason the visitors were seen for several days, at one point shining beams of light down as they were obviously looking for one of their own.
Makes perfect sense when you think about it, why would a biologically and technologically advanced race of extraterrestrials capable of interstellar and probably intergalactic space travel be interested in such things? That would be like NASA suddenly releasing a statement expressing their interest in caveman technology! I will leave you all with this thought…
THOSE WHO SPEAK DO NOT KNOW, THOSE WHO KNOW DO NOT SPEAK!!!!!
If you are interested in my true story and my photographic evidence and would like to use it for your publication/website etc, then you have my full blessing and permission to do so, all I would say is please keep my name out of the public domain and treat it with the strictest of confidence.
Due to recent revelations, I have decided to share my evidence. When I was younger I was a poacher, I lived very close to Rendlesham Forest and frequently went poaching there. So back in 1980, 28TH December I was in the forest poaching.
Now bear this in mind, before this encounter I saw and heard a lot of strange things in that forest. I could tell you stories that would bend your bones, so every time I went poaching I always took my camera always hoping to capture some evidence.
OK so let’s cut to the chase, so I saw a basketball sized red orb, it had a black centre like a pupil and looked just like an eye winking at you, just like Halt explained it.
It was zig zagging between the trees, strange, freaked me out, weird man, proper not right, I saw it before Halt.
It passed me first. Halt and his team was about 200 meters away, I could hear all the noise. Later I saw another UFO it was firing beams of light down to the ground, definitely looking for something, God knows what.
I tell you, what I witnessed was simply incredible, definitely extraterrestrial no two ways about it. You can read books and watch TV shows about it, but I’m telling you man you had to be there to really understand and appreciate just how incredible this thing was, changed my life for ever.
I’ve sat on this information for over 40 years and it feels good to get it out and show the truth. After this thing happened I was followed for weeks, I had my phone tapped, scary time man. Anyway enjoy my photos, these are the real deal!!! Peace and Love from John The Poacher.
Around sunset at 8pm on the 10th, I sat on my back porch enjoying the warm weather because it was a nice breeze. I was looking up toward the sky in a nice relaxed mindset thinking about the previous nights encounter of a strange light that I managed to take pictures of. All of the sudden out of no where a bright orange light overhead appeared from thin air stayed for maybe half a minute and then disappeared.
I shouted at the door for my mom to come to see but by the time she got there it had gone. A couple minutes later it appeared and seconds later a roar of a jet engine which sounded military appeared. The object appeared further south west in a straight line from it’s first appearance. The jet seemed to be circling the area and followed the path southwest, the timing made it seem like it was giving chase to something, the object appeared one more time just in eyesight of the tree line and then it was gone and the jet took off.
I never saw the jet but from the sound it made it was putting out some serious power. The object itself made no noise and we have a airport not far so I’m used to hearing planes. I looked through the recent UFO reports and their was a similar sighting with a picture in NJ. The pictures I am providing are from the previous night which include a strange triangle shape anomaly.
A coworker and I were closing the video store where we worked at the time, on a warm night in the summer of 1996. I’m not sure of the month/ year but it was after 95 and before 97, it’s a little fuzzy to me I can’t seem to remember a lot of details about it. But I digress. My coworker took the garbage out the back of the store to put in the dumpsters. She came running back 10 seconds later and said you have to see this. I then don’t remember where she was once she told me to come look. I don’t know if she ran Into the store or if she was looking out the back door with me. As I looked up at a huge UFO that took up my entire view!!!! Because it was so low and close to the top of the building and dumpsters were located in a little bowl type depression in the back of the store. It moved so slowly that I could’ve walked with a child beside it and kept pace with it. I was afraid to step out and down to the pavement to look at it, afraid of being beamed up. It was not even 20 feet above me! I try to remember every tiny detail the lights, the depressions and it even looked as if there were 2 spots on the bottom where it might dock into something else. It was pretty large. I watched it go over my head as I hung out the door still afraid to step out. As it went over the top of the building I yelled quick run through the store, let’s run out front and see it come over! We then bolted as fast as we could the 40 feet from the back of the store to the front of the store and out ran outside. I swear that ship never came over the top of that building! It was just gone and all there was were stars! I have a fog about it. I can’t remember a lot of details I don’t know if I was taken. But the next day I told another coworker what had happened afraid to say anything for fear of ridicule, but he told me that he and a friend had followed a UFO from the southside of Connellsville in our town to the shopping center where I worked and then they lost it! I was the manager of the store. I worked there for 6 or 7 years. I hired and fired people and I cannot to this day remember the full name of the guy that worked with me who chased the ship and I cannot remember the name or the face of the girl who was with me the night that we saw it at the store. I only know she was blonde. I really wish I could be hypnotized so that I could remember in detail what happened. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
We’ve got an object that appears every night around the same time, hovering stationary but moves in several directions at short distances and always returns back to its original location. It appears to blend in with the star light, staying stationary for several minutes before it starts to move. It changes colors, but it seems to have a blinking strobe light. It will stay there for several hours before it eventually moves below the tree line. It cannot be a drone since no drone can hover that high in the sky, nor can it hover for more than 3 hours. It seems to be in orbit with the earth and stays equilaterally distant with the moon as well. When looking at it through my telescope, it actually orbits about the same speed as the moon’s orbital speed, almost as if it were pacing it.
This object has appeared every night for several years and we cannot figure out what the hell it is. I called Barksdale AFB in Bossier City, LA, and they hung up on me every time. I must sound like a loon, but I’m telling you it’s real. I had my wife witness it for several nights, as I also had an old Army buddy visit me from Oregon, and he witnessed it as well. Whatever it is, it’s not going away anytime soon. The first time I noticed it was in 2019 August. It also had a secondary object cross its path as if it were a shooting star, but it travelled much slower. It was also much fainter. Video was taken using a Cannon DSLR Rebel Ti3 hooked to a Celestron PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope. The video shows the object moving up to the left but in reality, it is actually moving down and to the right behind the tree line. The setup did not move at all, so the object did move back and forth a little in that particular shot as it was moving along its apparent orbital path.
KENS NOTE: The two photos above were extracted from the video.
Back in 1980 my mum lived in Suffolk in the East of England. Late in the evening on December 24, 1980 (Christmas Eve) she had just finished making final preparations for Christmas Day and went into the back garden to put some rubbish into the bin.
Whilst in the back garden my mum saw 4 extremely bright glowing objects in the night sky, after observing the objects she went back inside and got her camera and took a couple of photographs. She then stood and watched the objects for roughly a further one minute before they all simply blinked out and vanished from sight.
My mum never told anyone about what she saw, she always kept it to herself. It was 3 years later when she read the newspaper article about UFOS witnessed by USAF military personnel in Rendlesham Forest written in the News Of The World that she realized that what she saw and photographed 3 years earlier was probably and more than likely something to do with and connected to with what Colonel Charles Halt and his men witnessed.
My mum always thought that it was simply too much of a coincidence not to be related, and let’s face it, within hours of my mums sighting Halt and his men were running around the forest chasing UFOS.
My mum now lives in a care home and is suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. As an individual who does not wish to speak out publicly regarding my mum’s UFO sighting, debate the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident with anyone, or speak to UFO researchers and UFO investigators, after much careful thought and consideration, I have decided to release this photograph to a list of credible and seriously minded people and UFO organizations I have compiled so that it can be made available for research purposes and so that the photograph and my mum’s UFO sighting can be made available to those who have an interest in the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects.
This photograph which clearly shows the objects that my mum saw has never been seen by anyone except for a few close family members and this is the first time in over 40 years that my mum’s story has ever been told.
Whatever the truth is regarding the now infamous Rendlesham Forest UFO incident and what Colonel Charles Halt and other USAF military personnel witnessed in Rendlesham forest all those years ago is, is at present still unknown and is still debated to this day.
Whether the objects that Halt and his men witnessed were something natural, man-made or possibly something even of an extraterrestrial origin as many have speculated, again is still yet unknown and is still debated to this day, and exactly the same can be said about the objects that my mum witnessed and photographed.
However, one thing that I can say without a shadow of a doubt and with absolute certainty, is that whatever the objects were that my mum witnessed and photographed were, in no way, shape or form any kind of lighthouse beam.
My mum’s UFO sighting and photographic evidence may not provide any conclusive answers regarding the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, and might even be completely unconnected and have nothing to do with it.
However, I believe it is a huge and extremely important piece of the puzzle and does indeed prove that Unidentified Flying Objects of a yet unknown origin were infact present in the skies above Suffolk around the Christmas period of 1980.
My mum was never interested in the UFO subject, however, she did read about the Rendlesham Forest case and was firmly convinced that what she saw was other-worldly, she was also of the mindset that both the American and British Government covered the whole thing up and know far more than everyone has been led to believe.
Editor’s Note: A big thank you to the lady who submitted this most interesting report, along with the photograph.
That afternoon I was in an architecture exercise abroad at the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, Morelia, Mexico. I looked east by chance and over the pines, high up, I could see the object. Due to the exercise we did, I brought my Nikon Coolpix L120 camera with me so I took it and tried to focus to take pictures, the exact time was 6:48 pm on March 6 so the light was poor and I struggled to focus on the object. I was able to take 6 photos, the best I achieved when I zoomed in, I was only able to take 6 photos and although the camera had a video option, I did not do it out of emotion. The object was flying in a circular pattern, when I observed it, I could see a flash on the object’s belly only once, it looked tilted 45 degrees while moving in a circular pattern and lowering the height, at one point it straightened and almost made it high Overall. At that moment I was able to zoom in with the camera and get the best photo, it only lasted a few seconds and began to climb. Although there were many people around me because of the emotion, I did not notify anyone, I only dedicated myself to taking the photos.
In the close-up photo, an open hatch appears to be observed, there appears to be a humanoid figure poking out of the hatch and what appears to be a flame is observed below the humanoid figure. I sent the photos to a program in Mexico called Tercer Milenio and when they observed that supposed flame they answered me that it was a cantoya balloon [ CHINESE LANTERN ] but those balloons do not fly at 45 degrees and if the wind tilts them the flame would burn it since it would remain vertical making contact with the paper. I made an over position of two images using as a reference the cracks in the wall of a building to appreciate the movements that I mention in this description.
B.C. and his fiancee were riding their Harley Davidson through the southern Sierra Nevada’s, in what is now Lake Isabella, California. They found an old dirt road that led down to the dry lakebed and pulled off the main highway to take some random scenic shots. Neither of them saw anything out of the ordinary at the time.

This highly unusual photo has been in my family since before I was born. It filled me with curiosity during my childhood years. As I grew older I had my doubts about it being a real picture, but remained curious over the years. On my 27th birthday my father came by my apartment and gave me a birthday card that included the original color slide of this UFO image.
My father carefully explained how this photograph was shot by a friend of his named B.C., who did not actually see the UFO at the time he took the picture! It wasn’t until B.C. received the box of color slides he had shot that he noticed one picture with an image of a sideways, saucer-shaped UFO which appeared to be parked above an old oak tree.
According to my father, B.C.’s first reaction was that someone at the “Kodak” film lab must have been playing a trick on him. When B.C. showed the color slide to my father, he believed it was worth further examination. My father explained to B.C. how he had gone to some of the UFO meetings that were held at Giant Rock airport out in the Mojave Desert during the early 1950’s and that he believed something was definitely going on. At that time, they were both members of the Self-Realization Fellowship and had heard their guru, Parmahansa Yoganada, say that he believed there was life on other planets.
After having some copies and enlargements made, my father decided to take the original slide to the Los Angeles office of Time Life Magazine. It was in their possession for a few days before they concluded that the photo was authentic. According to their tests, it was not a lens flare, an acid splash or a double exposure. Oddly enough, they were instructed by their main office in New York not to run the story or the photo. They claimed it was not their policy to do so. I find this highly unusual considering that Life Magazine had published clear black and white UFO photos in the early 1950’s.
I decided to research if someone could possibly take a photo of something that was invisible to the naked eye. I discovered that our eyes only see a very small amount of the infrared, or ultra-violet radiation around us. Only about one octave of the available vibrations (wavelengths) is registered by our normal consciousness.
Film is much more sensitive to the other more subtle energies on our environment. Judging by the colors around the ’57 UFO it is mostly vibrating in the infrared range. Another possible theory is that a field of rotating energy surrounding the craft absorbs photons from bouncing back and registering on the observer’s eye.
Those are some of the logical explanations, and yet, as illogical as it sounds I have seen UFOs become invisible on more than one occasion during the day and night – both in and out of the city with and without witnesses. Now you see it… now UFO don’t!
Dr. Elmer Green is a physicist who worked just northeast of Lake Isabella for the Naval Ordinance Test Center, at China Dry Lake, from 1947 to 1957. He frequently heard about encounters with UFOs that would fly into range of their observation cameras. Many times while range testing new weapons systems, good quality films were made of UFOs.
He personally saw black and white still shots of UFOs that were taken by other scientists in his work group. While telling his story to scientist and author Richard Thompson, Dr. Green claimed that he knew of some 40 to 50 professional people who had some connection with UFO sightings during weapons testing at China Lake.
Dr. Green had even experienced a clear UFO sighting with the base’s photographic officer, Jack Clemente while watching an AJ Bomber coming in for a landing. According to Dr. Green, “As the airplane flew over, we saw an object about 16 feet in diameter flying about 400 feet below the bomber.
The object seemed to be a structured, mechanical craft. It had a semi-circular forward section that was amber colored. In the blink of an eye, the UFO flipped up to the wing of the plane. It remained there, pacing the plane for a few seconds and then it flew away at great speed vanishing from sight in 2 or 3 seconds.”
Dr. Green noticed that even though UFOs looked mechanical, they often seemed to perform beyond the laws of physics. Even though they could move faster than the speed of sound, they did not produce a sonic boom. Dr. Green compared these maneuvers to a spotlight projected on the wall and he considered that they might be real physical structures that were somehow being projected into our space-time.
Dr. Green also noted that during his early years at China Lake in 1947, many UFOs were sighted and that he would also regularly see the flashes from atomic bomb air bursts at the Nevada test site nearby. Some of Dr. Green’s co-workers even speculated that there might be a connection between all the UFO activity and the frequent atomic testing.
After showing the ‘57 UFO photo to a senior U.S. space engineer who has helped design many of our latest and greatest spacecraft including the Space Shuttle, I was given the following explanation:
Ambient interstellar light saturates our atmosphere and becomes polarized to our earth’s relative north/south rotation. This angle of rotation is given a relative 90 degree value which can be considered a phase that is unique to all other phases – such as a note on a scale of musical vibrations.
As a UFO enters our atmosphere, its relative 90-degree north/south rotation will occasionally align with our Earth’s polarity phase in harmony. During these brief moments of energy alignment UFOs become visible as bright lights or shiny metallic surfaces. This particular UFO is standing on edge, with its polarized energy field 90û out of phase from our Earth’s own polarized energy field.
When Life Magazine decided not to publish this authenticated UFO photo, my father left the original slide sitting unprotected in the desk drawer of his office which had a leak in the skylight. Over the years, mold grew on the film, but fortunately the original image of the UFO has remained intact.
Even though this picture is very old it still tells the story of the future – the implications of which are enormous. I believe sometime in the future, the beings that operate these cosmic craft will reveal themselves and awaken all those who are still sleep waking through life. A wise man once said, “Ignorance is bliss… enjoy it while you can.”
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden sat at the outdoor table with my ASUS laptop viewing the live map on planefinder.net, so that I could easily identify any air traffic that was flying over the area. Even though dust from the Sahara desert was causing a slight haze in the sky over England I was still outside sky watching. I then saw a propeller plane approaching, so I decided to take some photographs as it flew over the area. The propeller plane was a Cessna A150M Aerobat and it’s registration was G-OMAS. I was in the process of photographing it with my Nikon P900 camera, when all of a sudden a round object flew right past the plane at great speed. I managed to capture this unidentified object in one of the photographs, and I immediately checked the planefinder live map to see if there was any other air traffic up there beside the plane but there was none. This means whatever this object was it had no transponder and should not have been up there near that Cessna plane.
I was unable to identify the object, so I continued to watch and photograph the Cessna plane, when to my surprise two more smaller sphere type objects flew past the plane at speed just missing it. I managed to capture these objects in two photographs. These objects also had no transponders, so whatever these objects are they were all breaking the laws of the UK Civil Aviation Authority and were putting other air traffic at risk, but don’t worry, no one in the british government seems to give a damn about air safety and the presents of these unknown foreign aircraft in our skies. The UK has open borders, letting anyone in, so why not have open skies as well, where unregulated foreign aircraft can fly freely around the sky in dangerous close proximity to commercial or privately owned aircraft. Could the pilot of this Cessna plane please get in touch with me via my email at JohnMooneremail@example.com. I would like to ask this pilot if they were at all aware of these objects in the sky around them as they passed over Newton Abbot. The Photograph was taken at 3:02 PM on the 1st of April 2021 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
BOCA RATON, FL–Residents in a Boca Raton neighborhood say they looked up Monday night around 9 pm and saw a mysterious green light. Ryan Helfrich says, “this thing was going crazy zig zagging, like shot across the sky. That was unbelievable! Like nothing I’ve ever seen before.” They claim it drew images in the sky for two and a half hours. Eric Vandernoot, an astronomer at Florida Atlantic University, says it wasn’t the space station, but it was definitely not a UFO either. “I think it’s something here of earth nothing extra terrestrial.” He has a few theories on what it could really be. He claims it looks similar to debris falling from a satellite, but that wouldn’t dart across the sky the way the witnesses described. It’s not just kids who saw this, Boca Raton police say one of their officers also saw that green glow and called his supervisor to report it. July 6, 2008.
This object was caught by motion detection on ptz camera mounted on top of structure out at remote unoccupied farmstead. The object moved from north to south – unclear how far away – next motion event was daylight, you can see the grain bins in background. There were 2 dead cows found in tree row less than a mile away – no obvious cause of death, covered in mud. No farms with cows around for 10 miles, no reported missing cows from nearby farms. I’ve never seen anything like this out there on the cameras.
Editor’s Note: Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) is a name given to a type of IP camera where the user can control the movement and position of the lens from a remote location using controls on an Internet browser or software application. Panning refers to horizontal movement of the lens where tilting describes vertical movement.
A surprisingly clear footage of a UFO flying near Sao Paulo in Brazil. Multiple lights can be seen on the flying object, which appear to be set in a curved line. The shape of the aircraft appears to be circular without airplane-like tale or visible wings. The video was filmed in May, 2020.
NOVEMBER 28, 1955 ……CRUISE FROM ROTTERDAM TO PHILADELPHIA…….ATLANTIC OCEAN
“In 1955, stated Mr. Fogl, I was on a Panamanian ship Eagle. Its call sign HOOF. Perhaps some of my colleagues will remember me, especially on the British Guiana Coast. I would like though to go back a little to 1954.
About then I read a book “Flying Saucers Have Landed,” lent me by a fellow radio officer. I became interested in UFOs, but had an idea that it was all a hoax. I soon changed my mind about that!
We had been on the way to Philadelphia from Rotterdam. It was November 25, 1955. At about noon we heard an ear-splitting noise and whistle, followed by a thunderous roar. It all lasted a few seconds. Everything on board shook from vibrations caused by the noise. When we rushed on deck, there was nothing to be seen.
At that time on the bridge were the Master, Chief Officer and 2nd Officer, preparing to take O.R. and noon position. They saw nothing pass over the ship. There was just the roar. Nothing else.
Well, I had left it at that and forgot all about the matter until three days later, the 28th, I recall. It was nearly 5 PM, and time for our tea. I sat in my radio room reading some magazines when the 3rd Officer came in and asked if I would like to see a neat formation of jets. I ran with him to the wheelhouse and then on the bridge. At first I could see nothing unusual about the “planes”. Then it struck me.
They were not moving! At the same time one “plane” climbed steeply, yet the rest did not change their position. They just hung there. I grabbed my binoculars to have a better look. Sure enough, there, high… very high, were four huge discs. I could hardly believe my own eyes. But they were there all right. They must have been gigantic. We estimated them to be about 40,000 ft. high, and over 25 miles away from us. But I am not sure.
The sky was clear and, only here and there tiny clouds. The sun was near setting and the horizon red and gold. In the sun’s rays, the objects seemed to give out red vapour trails, but that could have been sun reflection.
The discs were flat and black. They were surrounded by a haze, the same as if heated metal in cold weather will have circulating round it in waves of heat. As I watched the discs something strange happened. One disc completely vanished from my eyes and reappeared in another place.
By that time, the Captain, Chief Officer, 3rd Officer, and I were all very excited. When I finally managed to get the binoculars back, I was just in time to catch final glimpses of the disc. The moment I got on watch I called S.S. Falcon and asked the radio officer if he had seen anything funny. He said, no-but did I hear an xxx urgency to all ships. In turn I said, no.
The copy of the message: At 23.OO Hrs Z, s.s. Olympic Light/ELGU at about 21.45Hrs, in position 36° .04″N, 31° .55″W – a luminous object rose resembling big shooting star, followed by a luminous tail about 20 times the main body. Appeared 20° above the horizon bearing 8Master –
That message was from the previous day, the 27th, said Mr. Fogl. It was now 1957, when I was this time on the British ship S.S. Ramsay, we were on our way from Vancouver to Port Elizabeth, via Panama. We had passed San Pedro and the U.S. Navy ships patrolling and having exercises. It was about 2.30 PM, when I was in my cabin doing my laundry. Suddenly the 2nd Officer called me to see a disc!
Without being told twice, I grabbed my Yashica C reflex camera from my wardrobe and dashed on the side of the bridge. Sure enough, there was a queer looking object hovering in the distance. It was suitable for a shot so I waited. In the meantime, I tried to keep under control my shaking knees and hands, and watched the disc.
It made no noise and was not more than a mile away. It was silver and black. There was no smoke or any gases coming from it. However, under the disc, a red light pulsated. We thought it tried to signal, so the 2nd Officer grabbed the Aldis and flicked back, but there was no response. At last the disc came down near enough and I got one shot. Then it turned and I shot again.
The disc was rather thick, and had a flat dome. There were no ports. However, there were some black marks, and I wonder if they were not some sort of exhausts. Then we noticed a ladder! Whether it really was a ladder I can’t say. It could be some depression in the craft.
The object moved very slowly and stayed with us for a few minutes. Then it shot with quick acceleration towards a rugged mountain, and the desert coast of sun baked California. I would like also to mention that Vancouver Broadcasting Station announced that some strange objects and lights had been seen by hundreds of people. If I am not mistaken this happened in the first days of December.
Thad Fogl had his film developed in Durban and found that indeed he had captured two very good pictures of the strange aerial object. The majority of the ship’s crew members requesting copies for themselves. On returning to England, he contacted either the Daily Mail or Daily Express newspaper, (he can’t recall which), who in turn replied that they had no comment to make.
His next step was getting in touch with Brinsley le Poer Trench, who at that time was editor of Britain’s Flying Saucer Review Magazine. Much to Thad’s surprise, he received a phone call from this gentleman the following day announcing that he had some good news. It was to be told that Mr. Trench “knew” that the craft was from Venus, how many crew members it carried, and in what manner its propulsion system worked!
This announcement did nothing to impress Mr. Fogl: on the contrary it merely served to anger him to the point that he arranged to meet with this “fountain of knowledge.” When face to face, Thad bluntly told Mr. Trench that he was dismayed that he was prepared to disseminate such outrageous lies to a gullible public, that there indeed were serious people who believed in such things as he had witnessed and photographed.
Finally adding he thought him pompous, they parted company on less than friendly terms. By this time, The London Illustrated News and Life magazine had somehow obtained copies of his photographs. Publishing them resulted in a deluge of publicity attention that overwhelmed Thad. Finally, on receipt of a letter from a young boy in the United States who had enclosed a dollar seeking a copy of the photo saying that was “all he had,” Mr. Fogl said to himself “ENOUGH.”
Without further ado, he contacted Gordon Creighton (present editor of FSR) and admitted to fabricating the picture and story. He just did not want to be bothered by incompetent people. By this time, Thad had left his seafaring days behind him and was working for Hawker Siddley, on rocket propulsion systems. For this type of work he had to be vetted by M15 (Britain’s Intelligence Service) on a very regular basis.
Consequently, admitting to and chatting about flying saucers was not likely to bolster his credibility in anyone’s eyes, least of all theirs! So, from then on, he simply clammed up. At this point, forty years have passed and Thad felt that he should accept his wife’s suggestion and go public again, and set the record straight once and for all.
Therefore, it was my good fortune to be permitted to interview him in July 2001, at his home here in British Columbia. Mr. Fogl readily agreed to my request to record the interview, which lasted about forty-five minutes. He was at ease, and readily answered my questions, also providing details of his two ocean sightings in a sequential manner.
Additional questioning revealed that he had not experienced any further paranormal events in his life. Acquiescing agreeably to my desire to take photographs, we concluded what was for me a very interesting meeting.
Trinidade is a small, deserted, rocky island located in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean, between the Brazilian coast and the African continent, more than six hundred miles off the coast of Bahia.
During World War II, it was used as a military base for United States and Brazilian warships engaging German U-boats.
It was abandoned after the end of the war, remaining completely deserted and forgotten until 1957.
In October of that year a task force from the Brazilian Navy arrived there, under the command of Captain-of-Corvette Carlos Alberto Bacellar.
The Hydrography and Navigation Division of the Ministry of the Navy had decided to build an oceanographic post and a meteorological station on the island for research connected with the International Geophysical Year (IGY).
In early January 1958 the ship “Almirante Saldanha” left Rio de Janeiro’s harbor and proceeded toward the Island of Trinidade with a crew of three hundred. The ship had previously been a Brazilian Navy training vessel, but it had been converted into a hydrographic unit to be used for IGY-related research.
It was operated by the Hydrography and Navigation Division, and, since October 1957, it had made several trips to Trinidade, most of them connected with the Navy’s oceanographic studies for the IGY.
Several civilians were aboard the ship this time, officially invited to collaborate in the scientific studies which were underway at the island.
One of these men was Almiro Barauna, a photographer and former newspaperman working as a “free-lancer.” He was also an expert in submarine photography.
After a routine trip, the ship arrived at the Island and stayed there for several days. It was scheduled to leave for Rio on January 16. On that day, at 12:15 P.M., when the ship was preparing to depart, a strange object was sighted simultaneously by a number of observers gathered on deck.
The UFO came toward the island at high speed, hovered briefly over a peak, disappeared behind it for a short time, and appeared again to move away toward the sea.
Mr. Barauna was taking pictures of the ship’s maneuvers at that moment. He spotted the UFO and got four pictures of it.
Barauna was later interviewed by reporter Joao Martins and his statements were published in the Brazilian magazine “0 Cruzeiro” in the March 8, 1958 issue. Here is a translation of that interview:
Q. Mr. Barauna, what were the reasons for your presence aboard the NE Almirante Saldanha?
A. The Navy had invited several teams specialized in submarine hunting to visit the Island of Trindade. I am a member of the Icarai Club for Submarine Hunting, and our group was invited for the last trip. So, on January 8, when the ship left Rio, I was aboard together with the following members of my group:
Amilar Yieira Filho, captain of our team, a government employee (he has a job at the CACEX); Jose Teobaldo Viegas, instructor at the Aero Club of Niteroi and Air Force captain (retired); Mauro Andrade, from the London Bank; and Aloisio, municipal employee at the Federal District.
We were going to try to beat some records on submarine hunting.
Personally, I was going to take underwater photographs for the Navy and, also, to write some articles about the Island and the activities of the scientists working for the IGY.
Q. Were any other civilians aboard, besides your group?
A. Yes. There was Professor Fernando, a geologist, with two assistants, and also a photographer, and a reporter from the newspaper Jornal do Brasil. The three scientists left the ship and went to the island.
“Q. Please tell me what was the date of the sighting? What happened?
A. It was on January 16, at 12:15 P.M. The ship was preparing to leave the island, to come back to Rio. I was on the deck observing the operations to take aboard the boat used in the trips between the ship and the island (the island has no harbor).
The sea was agitated. The weather was cloudy, clear, with no shadows. I had my Rolleiflex 2.8, Model E, which was kept inside an aluminum box for protection against the corrosive effects of water and salt. I had left my Leica with a telephoto lens in my cabin a few moments before. The deck was full of sailors and officers. Suddenly, Mr. Amilar Vieira and Captain Viegas called me, pointing to a certain spot in the sky and yelling about a bright object which was approaching the island.
At this same moment, when I was still trying to see what it was, Lieutenant Homero, the ship’s dentist, came from the bow toward us, running, pointing out to the sky and also yelling about an object he was sighting. He was so disturbed and excited that he almost fell down after colliding with a cable. Then I was finally able to locate the object, by the flash (of light) it emitted.
It was already close to the island. It glittered at certain moments, perhaps changing its own light – I don’t know. It was coming over the sea, moving toward the point called the Galo Crest. I had lost thirty seconds looking for the object, but the camera was already in my hands, ready, when I sighted it clearly silhouetted against the clouds.
I shot two photos before it disappeared behind the peak Desejado. My camera was set at a speed of 125 [125th of a second], with the aperture at f/8, and this was the cause of an overexposure error, as I discovered later.
“The object remained out of sight for a few seconds – behind the peak – reappearing bigger in size and flying in the opposite direction, but lower and closer than before, and moving at a higher speed. I shot the third photo. The fourth and fifth ones were lost, not only because of the speed the saucer was moving, but also for another reason:
In the confusion produced as a result of the sighting, I was being pulled and pushed by other persons also trying to spot the object and, as a consequence, photographed the sea and the island only – not the object. It was moving out to sea again, in the direction from which it had come, and it appeared to stop in midair for a brief time. At that moment I shot my last photo (the last on the film).
After about ten seconds, the object continued to increase its distance from the ship, gradually diminishing in size and finally disappearing into the horizon.
