While watching the Jan 19, 2017 CTV news covering President Trump prior to taking oath of office. You can clearly see a UFO is visible for 3 seconds in the newscast at 21:41 mark. I tried to report this to MUFON the next day, but had difficulty getting a copy of this video and to post. Today while browsing my laptop, I found the video I had forgot about and decided I would try to complete the report again.
KENS NOTE: Apparently MUFON feels it not worth investigating and may classify the case as ” information only”. Ignoring a possible ”smoking gun video” is a disgrace.
I was out on my back porch again, and spotted the pulsating orb in the Eastern sky. It was 10:54pm. It’s movements were similar to the other two reports I’ve filed. The light pulsate, the object on zoom is clearly spinning. It hovers, makes sharp directional changes. It disappears for seconds, then reappears, sometimes in a different position. When you stare at it the object appears to be reflecting like a prism. Not separate colored lights but glinting the rainbow of colors. The green mist, aura, or shroud is visible when you fixate on it.
My brother in law also witnessed this sighting and kept saying he saw green, in front of the craft. I am convinced I’m seeing it in my minds eye, but that is how he described it to me. We watched it for almost 45 minutes and went inside. We were cold. I looked a short time later and it was gone. It was about 1215pm when I checked to see if it was still there, and it wasn’t. Side note: in one of the pictures I believe the first one….. when you zoom in on it it appears there is a domed top that is translucent, possibly a window.
We were traveling south on mission road going toward home (Green valley) from Tucson. On the road below us was Bomber factory, Hughes aircraft factory and Tucson airport as well as Davis Montham air Base. The mountain, called A mountain was to the west of us. I saw several —3—bright lights to my right. They were over a small ridge of A mountain. and flew around it. They seemed to be banking to the west. My husband went just past the mountain the orbs reappeared. They seemed to be in a line in front of our vision west and aprox 20 degrees degree above the horizon. They did not flash only glowed and hovered there. Two young people pulled off behind us. The young man kept yelling “tell me you see that, tell me you see that’ and called his grandfather who lives on reservation land to go outside and look up. The girl stayed in the car. She was terrified and just wanted to leave. A very large object appeared from the south west that while opening up, looked very much like a air hanger in the sky. There were a series of lights that appeared to be hanging from a roof of some kind and your could see metal gurters. The lights hovering went into the structure one at a time and the “bay doors” closed. There was NO SOUND. Suddenly two jets came from the SE and flew directly over head. They went round the mountain and back heading back the way they came. They must have passed within a quarter mile of the dark object in the sky and never saw it. As soon as the jets left so did the object. It went south west. We followed it down Mission until we hit Duvaull mine road and returned home. Once that object left we heard crickets and cows and a dog barking again. But not while it was there. We said little to each other on the way home. I will admit it, I was shaken and excited at the same time. It was spooky. NOYE: The above image is CGI.
I have seen this object in the past, but I wrote it off as a star or an airplane. I do live by an airport. However, I now know this is not a star or an airplane. I believe it enjoys showing itself, or thinks people will write it off as a star if it only moves occasionally. The 10 minute video gets good at the 3 minute mark, you see flame or light from a thruster as it moves to the right. I had to move the phone to the right multiple times to keep up with the object. Note the electricity that is clearly visible all around the object. It is very clear if you focus on it. There also looks to be a field around the object. In the beginning of the 7 minute video, the object is moving around in a very peculiar fashion. I am uploading 3 videos. The 10 minute video is the first one, I took another 1 minute and 55 second video about a minute later, and the 7 minute video was 20 or so minutes thereafter. I have seen this object very often in the past, but approximately 5 days ago I saw it moving in a VERY unusual way. On that occasion, I did not grab my phone because I thought the object was too small and far away to come across well on a phone. Boy was I wrong. With the 10x zoom, you can see it much better than with the naked eye. I will continue to observe and take video of this phenomenon. It is clearly not Venus or a star. NOTE: The above image was extracted from the witness video.
Several hours of lights appearing, multiplying disappearing. These three all come from one 12 minute long video. We were camping in the desert and it was a dark night with a crescent moon. We had just sat down to our dinner at our picnic table, when these lights appeared out in the desert. Media File 1. We see lights multiply, disappear. We are talking to nearby campers at Belle Campground. They said that they had never seen anything like it. This video is the last in sequence of these three. Media File 2. Earliest appearance from the same 12 minute long video. 7:22 pm time stamp. You hear the loud buzzing noises on audio.
Never heard this before or since on my phone. Media file 3. Another appearance that happened before #1: showing them appear and disappear. We were at this spot about one year ago, under the Hunter’s Moon, and looked for lights, but saw nothing unusual. Dr. Greer had been doing CE5 in Joshua Tree, for several nights previous to our arrival on 10-20-2020. We camped here for several more nights and saw nothing unusual. Actress Roma Downey posted a video of the lights that night on her Twitter, so she saw them too.
KENS NOTE: MUFON is trying to debunk these light as flairs. Suggesting guesses to an investigator is not investigating. THIS IS WHAT A FLAIR LOOKS LIKE…..
Went outside to look at stars as I do frequently and as I looked up I noticed a satellite/bright star sized object moving NE to SW. It would hover them jet about a thumb at arm’s length. It did this several time, turned 90 degrees up then SW again before going 90 degrees down then started the eradic movements again. It made no sound. It was bright, somewhat pulsating and as I zoomed in I could see a trail around it and it looked as if it was spinning. Eventually I lost if behind my house. It seemed to affect my camera in that my phone would zoom in and out as I was trying to record. Upon watching the video a few more times I actually noticed a 2nd object near the first. Imagine a satellite that made distinct turns. I’ve watched a lot of drone videos and I do not believe this was a drone. It was definately not a plane/sat. I took pics and it seemed to be saucer shaped object with a dome on top.
I have multiple photographers of it changing color and accelerating across the sky. I was zoomed in with a telephoto lens in the attached pictures. I used Lightroom to try to darken or lighten the images to get a better look at the subject. It moved in a way that was extremely unconventional and at speeds and angles that in my opinion are impossible. As I was taking pictures of it it continued to move across the sky then hover in one place then move again. Changing direction multiple times and hovering multiple times. It was pulsating different colors. At some points it looked more round other times it looked more tear dropped in shape (as it was moving). Some pictures show what appears to be surface lights. This was not of human origin, and was under some type of intelligent control. It was extremely high in the sky but appeared to be within our atmosphere. Contact me for a more detailed description of the event and additional photos. Original uncorked photos are available.
As a result of some local publicity in May and June of 1998, we were informed that a photograph of several UFOs near Tagish Lake was taken some years back.
In July of 1998 an investigation led to the identification of the secondhand witness who was in possession of a slide duplicate of the image.
A copy of the slide was made, a preliminary analysis performed, the witness was interviewed and results are presented in this report.
We know that there was a total of seven objects from witness testimony. This is important since object 7 (the smallest object) is almost indistinguishable from bright reflections off the mountain rocks.
Sighting Description and Story Background
Two couples were doing some recreational boating on Tagish Lake in 1970 (approx.). Tagish Lake is a large glacial lake about 100km(60 miles) south of Whitehorse, the Territory’s capital. The two couples were travelling in two separate boats.
To respect their anonymity, we will simply refer to the two men involved in this story by their first names, Jim and George. George was in his early 50’s and Jim was in his mid 60’s around that time. Note: since the writing of this report, Jim’s surviving daughter has been contacted. She has given her permission to disclose his identity.
It was about 10 am when they were travelling southbound on the lake. It was windy and the water was a bit on the rough side. Jim’s boat was smaller than George’s and also had an open top. George and his wife where driving in a closed and larger boat. Because Jim had a smaller boat and wanted to stay out of the roughest water, he was travelling close to the shoreline while George and his wife could afford to travel out in the middle of the lake and were about 5 to 8 kilometres back.
While travelling along the edge of the lake, Jim and his wife saw seven strange glowing orbs as shown in the photograph (Figure 1). There are four closer objects and three more further up the mountainside. Jim estimated that they were 3 to 4 feet in diameter. They moved about slowly for the estimated 15 minutes that they watched them as he and his wife traveled down the lake.
The four closer objects eventually made their way up the mountain to join the other objects. George was too far back to notice the objects and didn’t even have sight of Jim’s boat.
His concentration was devoted to the rough water. Jim or his wife never mentioned anything to George until the film was developed, about a week later. We can speculate that this may have been because of the fear of ridicule or disbelief. That is until Jim had the slide in hand.
As far as George knows this was the only photo of the objects that Jim took.
Jim used slide film and made a couple of slide duplicates for George. George submitted one to the Weather Office who submitted it the Department of National Defence in Ottawa.
About a year later George was curious to find out what the department found from their analysis so he asked the person at the Weather Office to look into it. The answer he got back was that that information was classified.
The testimony of the secondhand witness George sounded very sincere. George was curious about what Jim saw and photographed and added that neither him nor Jim have or have had a big interest in the UFO phenomenon.
There was no apparent reason for Jim to make up the story or to fake the photograph. Jim’s story which was related by George sounded sincere and the two were close friends. Jim was the Chief Grain Inspector of Canada around that time and therefore it is unlikely he would have risked his credibility by perpetuating a hoax.
One question which often comes up is “Why is there only one photo of the objects when Jim observed them for 15 minutes?” Of course there may have been more photos that we are not aware of but as far as George knows, Jim only had the one image.
However, during the September 1998 field trip, one possible explanation for the one photo theory came to mind. As I was holding up the UFO photo in front of me, looking at the scene, and simultaneously trying to steer the outboard motor to get into Jim’s position, one thing very quickly became apparent. When I imagined what the real scene must of looked like, it almost sent chills down my spine.
Although, UFO#1 looks only like a dot in the photograph, UFO#1 would of looked ” DAM CLOSE ! ” in real life. If Jim wanted to at the time he could of driven the boat towards the UFO and been underneath it in less than 30 seconds and taken more photographs at very close range.
Surrounded by ice cold water it wouldn’t surprise me if he would have chosen to do just the opposite; that is, take one quick photo and continue to drive down the lake while keeping a somewhat fearful and very watchful eye on the objects

On Thursday Oct 15, 2020 at 7:29pm, it was a moonless night with light winds but latter they picked up. I recorded many craft flying over Area 51, with my Canon T6. I use long time exposures (13 seconds) (95/300mm) and occasionally video since this camera has a 300 mm zoom. I am unsure but I think I zoomed into 300 mm to get the video shot and than focused it better. I suspect the 8 craft I caught flying over Area 51 were drones. I also have images of them. I saw a stationary object that appeared to be a drone coming down(digital image 531) and than hoovering(Video 0532). I then went from long time exposures to Video and recorded this UFO for about 2 minutes and 15 seconds. At the 2 minute mark it turned off its lights and never came back. This video shows the craft hovering, although it some times appears its two crafts.
From the Black Mail box looking straight ahead om a SW direction, its over Area 51. I also witnessed two white explosions behind the Area 51 mountain range, no sound was heard. It doesn’t appear I have caught them on my files. I stayed a little bit longer, but the wind picked up. The exercises stopped or paused at Area 51 and it was impossible to get a good steady shot in complete darkness 14 miles away. A late model Chevy car pulled up to Black Mail Box, after I was just about done. I waited for the person to get out but they never did. I left and went home early that night, you just can’t shoot any thing reliable under those conditions. It seemed like Area 51 closed down when the high winds came in. I also reestablished the Black Mail Box back in June 2019, so far its still there. I drive 240 miles round trip every other week to catch a glimpse of what’s going on out there.
May 1, 2020; 7:00 PM Case 111613: Laura [last name withheld] was photographing the sunset near Zumarraga, Spain. Zumarraga is 15 miles south of the Bay of Biscay and 25 miles southwest of San Sabastián, a port town in northern Spain. Laura was more than one mile away from the mountain shown in the photos below. She claims that a white object, at approximately 10° above the horizon, approached the mountain (apparently from the left in the photo) and then descended. The object proceeded to land on the mountaintop and then disappeared.
According to her Case Management System report, she observed the object for “4 hours.” However, this was more likely due to a misunderstanding, and one might reasonably assume that she meant “4 minutes.” Laura took two photographs of the object: one as the object approached the mountain and a second photo after the object landed. The object was silent throughout the event.
On September 20, 2020, first noticed it around 8;30pm and it looked like a large colorful flashing star-like light from the distance. We (family and a few neighbors) thought it could be a plane but it didn’t appear to be moving. A 42x zoom with a camera revealed it was a Saturn-like rotating object flashing many colors. The body and small dots (in a ring-shape) rotating around it were consistently changing colors. The colors were flashing in a pattern that kept on changing.
For example one of the sequential patterns it kept flashing was green, red, blue, yellow, purple, cyan, and white (many times in a row) and another pattern that it flashed was black and white. Will be attaching a video as well. It never emitted any noise, nor did it make any sudden movements. Over the 2 hour span, we watched the light, we soon realized it was slowly moving away and lowering to the horizon and we soon lost it behind the trees and never saw it again.

Hi, I am not one to report unless I am sure. But what we saw at Long Beach island at 2 am was not something we doubt as something not in our comprehension.
My friend and I decided to take a walk on the beach at around 1:30 am after a long night of talking and catching up after about 20 minutes we noticed three bright lights on the sand, we thought they were police checking the area for trespassers. So we didn’t think much of it. We then noticed two of the light sources started to create a line between each other… it looked like a beam interchanged between two sources. Fast forward, these lights disappeared we figure it was some kind of weird glitch in some security light. We then notice a light that looked into the ocean. It was white shining very bright. We noticed a smaller green light flying over it... moving very fast all over the place. I mean like very disoriented.. nothing we have every seen before. I was a believer and the first thing I thought was aliens and I thought my friend would think I was absolutely crazy by my idea but when we both saw we looked at each other. The look on my friends face was shocking he was! absolutely startled… I was too. We both saw the same thing. These light forces moving ramp idly with no pattern or direction.. around the light source. At one point it seemed to dive into the ocean and back out. It would shine bright.. move and then disappear and appear again. It would make sudden movements and we would both look at each other. It would then stop and align with the bigger “light source” and then move about again. We watched it for about 40 minutes. I shined my light at it (blinked twice) and it disappeared… then shined back twice. And disappeared and we got to scared and walked away. We both realized this was an experience we will remember forever. We thought hard about what we might have seen but there just doesn’t seem to be any explanation to a light moving that rapidly and that unorganized like it did. We both knew what we saw but it seems unreal right now. I’m writing this because My friend and I truly believe we saw something out of the ordinary tonight. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
Was going outside to grab something from my car when I noticed this object thought it was different from what I usually see, so I pulled my video camera out zoomed in and got a very fast spinning craft. I could see where the dome and the so called smooth sided wings met a black dot on the bottom of the craft. My first few videos got it in some kind of plasma looking orb around the entire craft and looked as if as it was spinning the air or some particles were spinning extremely fast around it then all of the sudden the globe went really small like it disappeared and I could see this craft come from it spinning so fast that it looked like it was on fire. It would jump around my screen for the next few hours the closer I got to the object my phones videos started to be taken over by some kind of swarming things that were moving In synchronization many many different colors. I have multiple videos of these things happening where you can clearly tell. Sometimes it would do complete loops or shoot to one side of the sky at high speed the stop and hover instantly only to go straight up and then every which direction. Also saw some beams of light come from this craft every time it stopped that looked like they were like waiving around. When it would move again they would retract. In one of my videos watching the craft we noticed that the small craft came up to a bigger red looking craft with rows of light which I have on video as well the bigger ship I could only see by the glare of the light from a smaller craft almost as it was invisible but the bigger craft was over my head and I hadn’t even noticed it it looked like the craft would point these beams in the direction it wanted to go then would instantly just be there in a matter of seconds I watched this until the sun was about to come up then it shot straight up into the sky and a green beam of light came from behind it and it was gone.
On August 2, 2015 at 9:10 p.m., I was the first to observe the object while I was walking my dog. When I saw the luminous object passing slowly at about 30 km / h from my perspective at a height of about 1000 to 1500 feet, from south east to north west just above my head. I was very impressed and did not understand what this object could be. He was heading towards the lake in the northwest. At the same time, I called my wife on the cell phone to tell her to go outside immediately and see if she saw the object I was seeing. Our house is about 800 meters from where I was. My wife then went out onto our patio and she tried to follow him, she stopped near our house on the way to Lac St-Louis and filmed what she saw. So we have a video of this object. In the video, we see the object of a spherical shape that changes color and emits irregular shapes in halos of colors such as blue green red purple and white. By changing, this object regularly returns to a very particular shape, this shape looks like a translucent luminous sphere of white light, we can see in the center a small more solid white sphere with a sign of ” + ” more defined with more to the outside a more blackened area and after four light points which if we connected them could form a perfect square. The four rounded dots actually seemed to help form the base of a sphere with the halo that the object produced. After a few minutes of observation filmed almost stationary, the object disappeared.
I went to my neighbor’s house to go for a ride through the neighborhood and prior to going to her house. I had seen some bright lights in the sky probably 3 to 4. When I got to her house I started videotaping in her driveway and we seen it on the video and I got our of the car and it disappeared into the clouds but then I seen a red orb going through the neighborhood it was flying low or moving at a fast rate and acting as if it was trying to play hide-and-seek. The other vehicle that we were filming was right in front of me and then it disappeared into the clouds. In the video you can see lots of other lights in the sky. If you zoom into them they look like they can be aircraft’s of some sort. There’s also some misty looking stuff off to the right in the photos we have been seen a lot in our neighborhood these last couple months but this night really scared me as I felt like after I got home I was being followed or watched.
The summer of 1971, I was working the night shift for Conoco Oil Co. at an open pit uranium mine west of Karnes City Tx.
I was one of 6 people operating Caterpillar 657B earth movers. We were down to about 210 feet deep when this incident happened. It was about 11:10 PM , just after shift change we were getting ready to crank our machines, when the 85 acre pit lit up as if it was daylight.
The light was so bright that I had to squint because it hurt my eyes. I remember hearing a high pitched hissing noise and the hair on my arms stood on end. I was so scared, I fell to the ground and started praying.
I remember trying to look up, but the light was so bright I couldn’t. After about 2 minutes, the light started getting dimmer and I could finally look up at it. What I saw amazed me. The object was round and the bright light was coming from the center of the bottom of the UFO.
Around the perimeter of the craft was hundreds of penlight size light beams that alternated in all colors of the spectrum. Now I know they were laser beams. The UFO was rising up slowly at first and then went straight up out of sight in about 10 seconds.
I was crying and shaking and so was everyone else. The other shift workers thought we were crazy when we told them what had happened. But we got the last laugh. This is how we proved it actually happened.
There is a vein of uranium ore that runs from George West Texas to almost Texarkana Texas. When determining where to place a mine, the following steps are accomplished:
(1) A geologist with a geiger counter flies over the area and finds the highest radiation reading.
(2) Drilling trucks are sent out and core samples are drilled to determine the highest concentration of uranium ore. These core samples are drilled in a grid pattern and every core sample is given a tracking number and logged in showing the concentration and amount of uranium present.
(3) The open pit mine is then laid out according to these core samples.
When this UFO incident happened, we were about 2 feet away from a layer of hard rock called the “tap rock” that laid directly on top of the uranium ore. The uranium ore varied in depth from 6 to 18 inches and had about the same brown color as low grade coal.
Two days after this incident, the tap rock was removed to expose the uranium ore. We were astounded to find that the uranium ore was now a chalky white substance that had NO radioactivity at all! There was a 250 foot diameter circle of this chalky material in the center of the pit.
Outside of the circle, the uranium ore was still as potent as before the incident. Core samples don’t lie. This chalky material was uranium before this incident.
Many a night I have laid in my bed thinking about what happened. I think the UFO needed the uranium for some reason. Marcus Harvey, Sam Rayburn Lake, TX NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A very credible UFO encounter occurred in the small town of Delphos, Kansas in 1971. This case has never been debunked, and is still considered as one of the very best physical trace cases involving a UFO landing. Sixteen year old Ron Johnson, along with his dog Snowball, was tending the family sheep when his attention was suddenly drawn to a mushroom-shaped UFO appearing in the night sky. The flying object, metallic with multi-colored lights, was hovering approximately 75 feet away from Ron among some trees. Johnson estimated the craft was only a few feet above the ground. He estimated the crafts diameter at 6-8 feet. Stunned by what he was looking at, he tried to get a closer look, but the brilliant luminance of the craft did not allow him to make out any additional details. Ron described the craft as making a loud sound, “like an old washing machine which vibrates. “The glow of the objects bottom increased as it began to rise up into the sky. Ron would later state that he was temporarily blinded by the brightness of the craft as it ascended. After he regained his sight and composure, he ran back to the family house to alert his mother and father, Erma and Durel.
The bright, glowing object was now even higher in the sky. Ron’s parents came running around the side of the house to get a glimpse of the unusual phenomena. They arrived just in time to see the object, now big as the full moon, as it disappeared from view. The three Johnsons were shocked to see a glowing ring on the ground, right below where the craft had hovered. There was also a glowing material on some of the trees nearby. Family members would agree that the ground around the glow “felt strange, like a slick crust, as if the soil was crystallized. “Ron’s mother’s fingers went numb, like she had been given a local anesthetic. After they were sure the craft was not returning, the family settled down for the night. When dawn broke the next day, the family immediately returned to the sight of the glowing ring, and to their surprise, it was still there! The inside and outside of the ring was damp from a rain shower, but the exterior of the ring was amazingly dry. The ring had a crusty appearance, as though the rain had simply ran off, leaving it bone dry. Slightly over a month later, after a snow fall, the white ice had melted both inside and outside of the ring, but the ring itself maintained the snow drift. Investigators experimented with the ring by removing snow from a section of it, and pouring water on the exposed part. The soil would not allow the water to pass through. The Johnsons told their story to the local newspaper, The Delphos Republican. Reporter Thaddia Smith, along with several members of her family, drove back out with the Johnsons to see the site of the UFO landing and the strange ring.
Smith’s report was as follows: “The circle was still very distinct and plain to see. the soil was dried and crusted. The circle or ring was approximately 8 feet across, the center of the ring and the outside area were still muddy from recent rains. The area of the ring that was dried was about a foot across and was very light in color. The object had crushed a dead tree to the ground either when it landed or took off, and from appearance had broken a limb of a live tree when it landed. the broken limb was most unusual, it would snap and break as though it had been dead for quite some time, yet it was green under the bark, and the upper area still had green leaves clinging to its branches. However the lower area looked as though it had been blistered and had a whitish cast. “Later the same day, Sheriff Enlow, Undersheriff Harlan Enlow, and Kansas State Highway Patrolman Kenneth Yager investigated the ring after being alerted to the fact is of the case by Thaddia Smith. Harlan Enlow filed this report:“…we observed a ring shaped somewhat like a doughnut with a hole in the middle. The ring was completely dry with a hole in the middle and outside of the ring mud. There were limbs broken from a tree and a dead tree broken off there. There was a slight discoloration on the trees. “Further experimentation showed the ground under the ring to be dry to a depth of one foot. The ring itself was composed of a whitish substance, which was sent to a laboratory for analysis.
The findings were as follows:
It was vegetal in nature and belonged to an organism of the order of Actinomycetales, which is an intermediate organism between bacteria and fungus… family actiniomycete, genus Nocardia… [and is] often found together with a fungus of the order Basidomycetes, which may flouresce under certain conditions… one possible interpretation is that high energy stimulation triggered the spectacular growth of the Nocardia and of an existing fungus, and caused the latter to flouresce.
There would also be another witness to corroborate Ron Johnson’s account of the UFO. Sheriff Enlow told the press;
“On 11-03-71 Mr. Lester Ensbarger of 416 Argyle St. in Minneapolis advised Deputy Sheriff Leonard Simpson that at approx. 7:30 p.m. 11-02-71 he had observed a bright light descending in the sky in the Delphos area.”
The experience of Ron Johnson is still considered as one of the best documented “ground trace” UFO cases of the past century, and is still unexplainable by any conventional or earthly means.
On February 3, 1972, one of Peru’s most famous UFO encounters took place. It happened in broad daylight and the saucer’s alien occupant was seen by the two human witnesses.
It all began early that morning in Puquilo, a desert town about 500 kilometers (300 miles) south of Lima. Tito Rojas and Adolfo Penafiel owned a feed store, and they had a delivery to make that day. So before the hot summer sun climbed too high in the cloudless blue sky, the men loaded up the flatbed of Tito’s pickup truck and set out for Nazca, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) to the north.
(Editor’s Note: In Peru, as in other countries of the southern hemisphere, February is a summer month.)
With the truck’s windows rolled all the way down, hoping to catch a breeze off the Pacific Ocean, Tito and Adolfo drove north on the Pan-American Highway. On both sides of the road, a monocolor landscape of brown sand and jagged rocks met their gaze, with the rugged cordillera rising on their right.
As they were crossing the desolate Pampa Carbonera south of Nazca, the truck’s radio, which had been tuned to a station in Arequipa, began to act up. The Latino music faded in and out. Bursts of static obliterated the music. Finally, the radio started emitting just static, and then it went silent.
“Not again!” Tito said, and he thumped the dashboard with his right fist.
“Maybe it’s the antenna,” Adolfo suggested.
Suddenly, the pickup truck’s engine began missing on all cylinders.
“Now, what!?” Tito swore, stepping down hard on the gas pedal.
The engine raced, but the truck didn’t respond. Swiveling the stickshift, Tito tried for a lower gear. The engine continued to sputter and cough. Finally, it quit completely, and Tito coasted over to the sandy shoulder of the highway.
“It might be the gas filter,” Adolfo said, as they left the truck’s cab.
“I think it’s the battery,” Tito replied, “The radio is out. So is the door light. I hope it’s a bad connection.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because if we need water, we’ve got enough,” Tito said, gesturing at the leather bota (water jug–J.T.) dangling from the gunrack. But it will take all day and all night if it has to recharge by itself.”
Lifting the hood (bonnet in UK–J.T.), Tito licked his thumb and pinky finger and touched the battery’s terminals. He let out a fierce yelp.
“Madre de Dios!” He shook his hand ginerly. “That wasn’t the problem.”
Adolfo, who had been looking toward the rugged quebradas of the coast range, pointed suddenly. “Look!”
“Look at what?” the driver replied.
“Out there on the pampa.” Adolfo squinted against the morning sun’s glare. “I think it’s a car.”
“A car!? Out there!?” Exasperated, Tito turned to that direction. “You’re seeing things. There’s no way a car could have driven…”
Tito let the rest trail off. He had seen it, too. A silvery gleam in the midst of the dwarf sand dunes. Shading his eyes, he added, “You’re right. There’s something out there. What the hell is that!?”
“Let’s find out,” Adolfo said, slip-sliding down the highway embankment, kicking up a miniature avalanche of pebbles and sand.
The two feed dealers hiked across the desert. As they closed in on the spot, the sun dazzle lessned, becoming a shiny gleam on the mirror-like silver surface of a large disc.
Excitement had Adolfo’s heart pounding. “Caramba! Un disco volante!”
It was a flying saucer, all right. What ufologists call “a daylight disc.” The object rested on a tricycle landing gear. There was no sign of any lights, windows or openings. Later they described the craft as 15 meters (50 feet) long and four meters (13 feet) high. Its surface was so highly polished that their gaze rebounded painfully from the sun’s reflection.
At that moment, to add to their surprise, the craft’s occupant rounded the front of the saucer. Adolfo described the alien as “a man of average height, wearing green clothes under a transparent space suit.”
Instantly Tito and Adolfo began running towards the saucer. They hurried “to the place to greet the strange visitor. But as soon as he saw them, he stopped his inspection of the pampa and took off.”
“The saucer rose into the air with a shrill metallic whine, a sound familiar to the people who live in the area, which would seem to indicate that the pampa is a landing field for extraterrestrials.”
Tito and Adolfo watched as the disc rose into the sky at a nearly vertical angle and disappeared. After it was gone, they returned to the truck. On impulse, Tito put the key in the ignition, pumped the gas pedal and switched on.
The truck’s engine responded without hesitation. The Arequipa radio station came back loud and clear.
The Tito Rojas/Adolfo Penafiel case was the first of Peru’s great UFO flap of the early 1970s. Before it was over, Peruvian ufologists “counted two hundred and fourteen (214) ‘reliable’ sightings in 1973. In more than ninety (90) percent of them, the saucers were piloted by beings who seemed human except for their size and the color of their skin. In eighteen (18) cases, the pilots appeared to be robots.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This is just one of many cases which my group (Nuclear Connection Project) has listed under nuclear connection. We have found about 200 such incidents. Not only that, but this event occurred during one of the most intense sighting waves in history.
On March 5, 1967, Air Defense Command radar tracked an unidentified target descending over the Minuteman missile silos of the 91st Strategic Missile Wing at Minot AFB, ND. Base security teams quickly converged on the area and saw a metallic, disc-shaped craft ringed with bright, flashing lights moving slowly. The disc stopped and hovered about 500 feet (150 meters) off the ground, as security police held their fire and watched in awe.
Suddenly the object began moving again and circled directly over the launch control facility.
F-106 fighter-interceptors were standing by on the flight line, waiting impatiently for an order from NORAD to scramble. When the or order was not fortthcoming, base operations decided on their own to scramble the interceptors. At that moment the UFO climbed straight up and streaked away at incredible speed.
Another civilian representative assigned to Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota, told me that an Air Force major friend of his got a good close look at a completely unconventional craft maneuvering in the area between the air base and missile site. As he got out of his car and approached it, it took off at tremendous speed. Superiors ordered him not to talk about the incident.
On March 5, 1967, just 15 days prior to the Malmstrom AFB incident, the 91St Strategic Missile Wing at a sister base also had an unwelcome visitor. Aerospace Defense Command radar tracked an unknown target descending over the Minuteman missile installations at Minot AFB, North Dakota. strike teams were alerted and sighted a metallic disc- shaped craft ringed with bright flashing lights moving slowly over the supersensitive area.
Three armed teams in fast trucks pursued the alien vehicle as it maneuvered and finally stopped and hovered 500 feet off the ground. The strike teams held their fire. They had orders to capture it undamaged if it should land.
Then abruptly it began moving once again and circling directly over a launch control facility.
Back at Minot, F-106 fighter planes were awaiting orders from the North American Air Defense Command to launch an attack. Base operations became impatient and had just decided to scramble the jets without confirmation. Suddenly the UFO climbed straight up and streaked away at incredible speed.
SW. of Minot ND. An MP. got a call to one of the missle silos. The Sargent on duty took two other men with him. He told me that they had come over to see a UFO over the silo. The guards at the silo were like statues. the locks on the gates were open, and gates open. The sargent had contact with the officers down in the silo. They were very upset, it seems that the missile had been armed and unlocked in launch mod, and that the warhead was armed. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
