Intriguing globe-like sighting comes to us from Chronometer Magazine regarding an incident from Ivanovo in Russia on 1st January 2004. As they had only had a little champagne to celebrate the new year, the main witness, along with two friends, put on their coats and decided to take a quick walk around the streets to soak in the festivities taking place.
However, as they were doing so they noticed a “large orange sphere” that was not only overhead but appeared to be heading toward them. What’s more, it was descending as it did so. The three witnesses stared in fascination and nervousness at the object before one of them suddenly noticed that a strange humanoid figure – that appeared to have a snout in place of a nose – was watching them from several yards away.
Even more bizarre, however, was what happened next. The strange figure, which appeared to be smiling at the group menacingly, suddenly turned around. When it did so, though, it appeared to be completely flat. The witness would later state it appeared as though “it had been run over by an asphalt roller”.
Suddenly, an “invisible wave” hit the man sending him falling to the ground as if he had been physically pushed. He appeared to black out momentarily as the next thing he knew the figure nor the glowing orange sphere were no longer there. Even stranger, while his two friends saw the glowing sphere, they couldn’t recall it disappearing. Nor did they see the strange “flat” humanoid”.
This particular account has many insinuations that these spherical crafts, and perhaps even the occupants are not as real – at least as we might understand the word – as we think they are. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This event remains as one of Europe’s unsolved UFO cases. It began at about 8:30 AM, September 10, 1990, when the first sighting of a spherical, metallic object with legs was made. The object was either moving very slowly, or hovering in the sky at a low altitude.
A group of school children heading to class saw the object first. The youngsters probably imagined they were seeing a strange sort of balloon. Soon, other local residents also spotted the unusual flying object. Some early observers could only liken the object to a ‘turtle with legs.’
The object was reflecting the early morning sun, which caused on-lookers to surmise the object was made of some type of metal. In a short period of time, as many as 25 witnesses were observing the UFO.
Local residents were surprised and even frightened by the sight of the UFO. Some even tried throwing rocks at the object, in an attempt to shoo it away. Soon four pictures would be taken, forever documenting the event for posterity and further study by UFO students.
Manuel Gomes, sitting at a local diner, was soon told of the sightings. He was a photojournalist and worked with the Morning Journal News. He quickly gathered his camera and rushed to the location of the latest reported sighting.
He managed to take four photographs of the object. He was unable to identify the object as anything he had seen before. He turned over his report and photographic negatives to the CNIFO research group, who began an investigation into the events of the day.
After about an hour, the unidentified object finally flew away into the horizon, leaving many questions as to its origin and purpose. As researchers began to discuss the sightings, various theories were offered.
The photographs taken by Gomes were examined and found not to have been tampered with. What was seen in the Alfena skies was exactly what was on his photographs. The big mystery was: what was the object?
Of the many theories offered, the most plausible was that the object was some type of observation device, possibly launched by the military. However, the military claimed to have nothing in the air at that time and location.
The case of the Alfena, Portugal craft remains unsolved to this day.
On the evening of 11th November 1979, after a four-hour delay, the TAE Super Caravelle airliner, Flight JK-297 left Salzburg in Austria on its way to Las Palmas. After refueling in Mallorca, the plane retook to the skies on its way to its final destination.
However, at around 11 pm, the crew would receive a transmission from the Barcelona control tower. They would request that the plane switch to their emergency frequency as they had detected an emergency signal in the area. Realizing something out of the ordinary must have occurred, the captain, Javier Lerdo de Tejada switched to the requested frequency. As he was doing so, the navigator of the plane claimed there looked to be “something to the left” of the plane.
The rest of the crew turned their attention to their left-hand side. Immediately they noticed two strange red lights in the sky with them. And what’s more, they appeared to be heading in their direction.
Tejada would immediately request information from the control tower concerning the rapidly approaching objects. However, they would reply that they could see nothing at all on the radar systems apart from their plane.
With the tower unable to see the approaching glowing objects, Tejada made the decision to take the situation into his own hands.
An Emergency Landing Due To The Pursuit Of A UFO
After several moments, Tejada would change the course of the plane so as to avoid the oncoming lights. He would also begin to bring the plane down slightly. As he did so, he would radio the control tower at the nearby airport in Manises, Valencia and request permission to make an emergency landing.
All the while, the crew of Flight JK-297 maintained visual contact with the red lights. To their concern, the light also changed their direction and was continuing in pursuit of the aircraft. They would maintain this pursuit to around 50 kilometers of the Manises runway before suddenly changing direction again and breaking away from the chase.
At around 11:45 pm, over half an hour before the lights were first viewed, the plane touched down at its impromptu destination. However, while the two lights had indeed broken away from the chase, the plane’s radar immediately picked up three other anomalous signals.
What’s more, several other witnesses would report seeing the lights with their own eyes. These would include several airport employees who would light up the emergency runway thinking another plane was about to make an emergency landing.
Shortly after JK-Flight 297 came to a stop on the runway at Manises the passengers would leave the plane. Their journey would continue the following day. The Spanish Air Force, meanwhile, had become aware of the mysterious activity. And what’s more, they were preparing to take matters into their own hands.
A “Truncated-Cone Shaped” Object!
A little after midnight, from the Los Llanos Airbase, a Mirage F1 would head out into the night skies in search of these strange glowing crafts. Captain Fernando Camara was the pilot. And the flight he would undertake was certainly one he will likely not forget.
Although he would have to reach speeds of Mach 1.4, he would eventually announce visual confirmation of the lights. What’s more, the lights appeared to be part of a “truncated cone shape” which featured an extremely bright changing color. However, before Camara could get close enough to reveal any other details, the object disappeared out of sight proving much too fast for the Mirage F1.
A short time later, however, he would receive another radar signal. Once more, he would obtain visual confirmation of the same or similar object. This time, however, as he approached it, he would find that his flight systems were locked and out of control. Once more the strange object vanished into the distance. As it did so, the fighter jet’s systems returned to normal.
Camara would stay airborne for around 90 minutes before finally giving up the chase and heading back to base. The last confirmed location of the object was somewhere off the Spanish coast. It was heading toward the north coast of the African continent.
What the objects were, remains a mystery? As does what the purpose of their visit was. The account and ensuing investigation, however, would certainly throw up a mountain of possibilities.
It Wasn’t An Airplane!
The aftermath of the sighting was perhaps as interesting (and possibly telling) as the incident itself. Despite attempts to maintain a low profile over the strange events of 11th November 1979, including asking all airline staff not to speak about the incident publicly, it became increasingly harder to do so. So much so, that less than a year later in September 1980, the Spanish Parliament would publicly demand an investigation and explanation of the incident.
Journalist and eventual author of the book Incidente en Manises, J J Benitez would eventually speak with Captain Tejada. He would later claim that the pilot looked “very tired”, obviously a result of the bizarre incident.
He would state to Benitez that he wasn’t sure what the object was. However, he knew it wasn’t a conventional plane. Tejada would draw attention to the fact that he had over 8,000 hours in the air. And consequently had a good knowledge of aircraft. The fact their plane captured the lights on the radar suggested to Tejada that it “should have been some kind of metal”.
Ultimately, the captain would state, “the first thing we take into account is flight safety”.
And while Tejada himself made the decision to land the plane, it was the Spanish Air Force who suspected something untoward was in the skies over Manises. So much so, they would keep Flight JK-297 grounded until the following day.
The second pilot on the flight, Ramon Zuazo, would corroborate Tejada’s version of events. He would claim “we saw some unknown flying object”.
A Distinct Feel Of A Cover-Up
The previously mentioned book by Benitez is a great dissection of the case. And also cuts through the attempts to downplay (at best) and cover-up (at worst) the incident. The writer would state that the whole of Valencia was akin to a media circus such was the interest.
What’s more, the journalist also quickly picked up how the local and national newspapers would put any news regarding the incident across in completely different ways. This would depend on whether the source of the information was from a civilian or a military person.
What perhaps made matters even worse, certainly in the immediate aftermath, was that many of the passengers began to publicly doubt the reason the plane landed. Their suspicions were that after the original delay another (or perhaps the same) fault came to light.
This forced them to land and delay again. This would have surely put the company at risk of being liable for compensation. It was the suspicion so many of the passengers at the time that the UFO encounter was concocted. And was done so to avoid just such a scenario. Interestingly or not, not one of the passengers would come forward to claim they had witnessed anything strange.
The aviation authorities would quickly dismiss the passengers’ claims. They would ultimately praise the crew for their decisive action in such an unusual situation.
At around 6 pm on the evening of 24th January 2003, another sighting of a triangular object in the Ontario would unfold. This time in the Kingston region. The witness, who would withhold her name, would speak at length with UFO researcher and investigator, Peter Davenport. He would, incidentally, describe her as an “exceptional witness” and certainly someone with credibility.
At the time of the incident, she was driving in her car along Highway 15. She would recall how it was a particularly cold night with the skies long since darkened. However, with the music from her car’s cassette player filling the vehicle’s interior, she suddenly noticed something out of place in the sky that caught her attention.
She would describe this anomaly as “two, round, white lights” that were “much bigger than any (of the) stars”. And what’s more, the lights were heading toward her. She would quickly scan her immediate surroundings and, realizing hers was the only vehicle on the road, she would bring her speed down to around 15 miles per hour, perhaps a little less.
She brought her attention back to the object which was now significantly closer. The witness would claim the lights now appeared “like big bus headlights in the sky”. It was certainly something that she had not seen before. As she continued to watch the approaching lights, she noticed a third, smaller red light. It would “start on the inside left and blinked its way to the right”. And it would do so repeatedly. This, then, would suggest that the lights were very much attached to a much larger, solid object.
As the object continued to descend – now only several feet above the treetops – the witness would turn her car headlights to full beam. She would state she wished to “get a better look” at the approaching craft. At the same time, she brought the car to a virtual crawl along the lonely highway.
It was at this point that she could clearly see the object was a “black equilateral triangle”. What’s more, at each point of the triangle was a “large white dome light”. This would “glow”, almost in a throbbing way.
The witness would wind the window down in the car door so she could get an unobstructed view of the object. As she did so, she was indeed able to notice the underside of the object more clearly. Perhaps of more significance, though, is the direction the witness reported the object was going – towards the Kingston Mills Locks.
Once more, we have a close proximity UFO sighting which is heading toward a body of water. And what’s more, at least according to some researchers, locks are a particularly interesting place as they often disguise entrances to the inner world. We will come back to this later.
Regarding the object itself, she would recall how it was of a dark grey color, “almost shadow-like”. Perhaps of more intrigue, though, was the detail that attached to the underside of the object was a “very distinct 3-Dimensional black shape”. What’s more, this black shape had “arrow-like points” as opposed to the rounded edges of the main object. She would further describe it as being like “something out of a Star Trek movie”. The witness, though, was also questioning whether she might have stumbled under the flight path of a top-secret military aircraft. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Mongo, IN, is located approximately 40 miles NNW of Fort Wayne, approximately 5 miles from the Michigan border. The prime witness (referred to as JK) was an area fire supervisor for the Forest Management Division, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, residing in Jackson, MI. DB was the firefighter from Howell, MI who took the pictures. FB: Cass City, MI, retired, Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
One of the witnesses was a retired Michigan State Trooper from Carroll, MI. Another was a retiree from the U.S. Postal Service. The latter did not think the object was a UFO. There was one other witness, six in all. The sighting was brief, estimated at 1-3 minutes. Six men, all retirees from age 45 on up, were sitting around a campfire at the Trading Post Campgrounds at Mongo, IN, on Wednesday, August 31st, 1994. The time was approximately 8:30 PM, Indiana time; 9:30 PM Michigan time (EDT).
The UFO Filter Center at Mt. Vernon, IN (also HQ for the Indiana Group, MUFON) received the initial report on 10/07/94, by phone. FIT Linda Dahlkemper had called me (State Director) at 11:00 AM. On the 21st, UFOFC received blow-ups of two photos, #8 and #9, drawings by the prime witness, and some news clippings.
The photos were impressive. Although the images were small and taken at night, one photo looked very much like the famous Trindade Island photo. I attempted contact with Jeff Sainio, Photo Analyst, left message on his recorder.
At approximately 10:00 AM, on 10/22, I conducted a taped telephone interview with the prime witness (JK). A letter and six Form 1’s were sent to the prime witness. I requested witness send copy of photos to me AND Jeff Sainio. The following are notes taken from the phone conversation:
“Off to the southwest it looked like the moon, glowing through the treetops, and it was low. I said, ‘that can’t be the moon’, ’cause we are in the last phase. (Moon not visible anyway). Then it started moving. Then it moved right out from behind the trees into an open area near a road and hovered toward us. And it was clear as can be.
It was a flying saucer, just that vivid. The object glided into our area at a shallow angle, turned toward us and began to hover. Standing still, the white glow turned transparent. It looked like a white strobe light on the top of the dome. A bright red flash of light under the bottom flashed 3 or 4 times like a strobe and it disappeared to the south and east very quickly, within 2 seconds.”
Before it had gone they got at least four good pictures. One of the individuals who was taking pictures around the campfire that night had a Vivitar fully automatic 35 mm camera, loaded with 400 ASA color film. He was instructed to grab his camera and shoot. He had been out West with a fire crew, fighting fires and had taken pictures out there. The lens was standard, not telephoto.
Newspaper accounts show at least two other good witnesses (the Martins) testifying that this was no blimp. Reports of a blimp (Family Channel) in area. Finally, a man, his wife, and two daughters saw the same or similar object at Hamilton, IN, and took videos. Their sighting was at 8:45 PM and a little over 20 miles SE of Mongo. The object was less than 100′ up and there was no sound. Although some of video was erased, the object in one scene is large, pear shaped, and definitely not a conventional object.
A drawing was supplied with the blow-ups of negatives #8 & #9, and witness states that this is what the UFO looked like, as it was very bright and coming in, first like the moon. Object had panels that could be seen when the object was due south. He says drawing/photos don’t do justice to the actual event. There was absolutely no noise. Three dogs did not react in any way.
He was out hunting the next day and actually saw the Family Channel Blimp that others had reported. “There is no way in hell (that) we saw a blimp that night.”
The object they saw and photographed on the 31st was no further than 1/4 mile away, and from 500′ high to as low as 100′ at one point. Witness then states the object was more vivid when first coming in. Apparently the object was receding on subsequent shots. At first he thought the object to be a bright meteor. It didn’t take long for them to realize that the object was not a meteor. In negative #4 & #5 you “can see a distinct line right around the center”, he said.
Source Test, Natural: All natural sources were eliminated. An EZC Skyplot for Mongo coordinates during time slot shows three planets as conspicuous targets. Jupiter and Venus were in the SW, Saturn was in the SE. Description of object, movement, and number of witnesses precludes a misidentification of an astronomical object.
Also, an on-site investigation by John Timmerman of CUFOS failed to show any other natural source that might explain the sighting.
Source Test, Man-Made: Advertising, commercial, military, and private aircraft eliminated. A blimp seemed possible. Witness testimony appeared to rule this out. Later analysis by Dr. Richard Haines effectively ruled out any type of blimp or any other source. We had already eliminated a balloon, fixed structure, hoax (on witness or by witnesses).
Twelve witnesses were reliable, object was real, description and photos (and a video) indicate an unidentified craft was in the area, along with a possible blimp.
Evaluation: Unidentified craft. Berliner Strangeness Scale: 2 (Night object); Berliner Credibility Scale: 7 (Still photo(s) by professional). Speiser Strangeness Factor: S5 (Highly strange; suggests intelligent guidance); Speiser Credibility Scale: P5 (Highly credible, leaving almost no doubt).
The self-luminous aerial object seen and photographed at Mongo, Indiana on August 31, 1994, has remained unidentified after the various evaluations cited above. On the one hand, its overall shape and flight characteristics are not unlike many scores of other UFO reported for more than fifty years from around the world, many of which were captured on photographs.
On the other hand, a blimp definitely was seen during the night of August 31, 1994 in the Mongo area. The aerial object photographed cannot be positively identified at this time. It remains a UFO. The witnesses also claim the object at one point was less than 100′ over them, was as big as a football field, and made no noise!
On February 28, the crew of Air Shuttle flight 5959 initiated the reports. While cruising near Cleveland, they saw an unidentified, lighted object flying below them.
The pilot radioed Cleveland Air Traffic Control, and reported what he and his co-pilot were observing, asking the controller if he had anything near that position on his radar. The controller did not.
Shortly thereafter, the pilot of Mesaba Airlines flight 3179, who had been monitoring the radio communications, reported to the tower that he too had seen the UFO.
The UFO initially was reported as flashing white, but soon displayed an array of various colors. Shuttle 5959 also related to the tower controller that the UFO was several thousand feet below his plane, and about 10 miles away.
The only possible explanation that the Cleveland tower could suggest was that the crews were seeing a reflection in the clouds of a
landing beacon. But both planes reported that the light was a distinct source of its own.
The pilot of 5959 decided to drop down below the object. When he did, he could still the spinning, pulsating object above him very
clearly. This proved that the lights were not originating from the ground.
Mesaba 3179 even attempted to make contact with the UFO, by blinking its lights, but there was no response from the unknown object.
Mesaba would also report that one of their passengers had snapped photographs of the UFO, and the Cleveland tower reported that they would like to take a look at them.
What happened to the photographs is a mystery, as well as what the object was that was seen by two aircraft on February 28, 1996.
Below is an excerpt from the transcript of radio communications between Cleveland tower, Air Shuttle 5959, and Masaba 3179.
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Cleveland, this is 5959. We see traffic out there. Ah… twelve to one o’clock. Ah… low altitude. Do you have him on the radar?
Cleveland Control: Air Shuttle 5959, that’s a negative. Sir, I don’t have anything out in front of you at twelve to one o’clock.
Air Shuttle 5959: Ok…
Cleveland Control: He’s down well below you or can you get an estimate on an altitude on him?
Air Shuttle 5959: Well, that could be really difficult. Ah… we’re between layers here. I’m just going to estimate two-three thousand
feet below us. Maybe and ah… sort of ah… pulsating light about, I don’t know, ten miles out.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Air Shuttle 5959. I’ll keep my eyes open. But I don’t see anything.
Masaba 3179: Was that northwest of Detroit did you see that light?
Air Shuttle 5959: Yeah.
Masaba 3179: Yeah, that’s where I saw it. A really bright white light, sometimes flickering… ah… underneath the clouds is where I saw it.
Cleveland Control: Air Shuttle 5959, is that traffic, ah… that you saw earlier? Do you see him out there any longer?
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Shuttle 5959, that’s affirmative and it’s a light that kind of… it goes dim and it gets bright. I don’t know if we’re getting closer to it or what? But it looks like a rotating light around it like ah… like a Frisbee type thing that’s going around it.
Unknown voice: UFO.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, do you see the same thing?
Masaba 3179: Ah… sir, I saw it coming out of Detroit and I wondered… ah… all I saw was just a couple really bright flashes of light and it almost looked like lightning and it caught my eye. And then I kept watching it and then it looked a little bit less bright. But it looked like it was underneath the cloud deck to me. And this was just as we were coming out of Detroit.
Cleveland Control: Ok, and can you get an altitude on it at all?
Masaba 3179: The light that I saw was just like, maybe, I don’t know… twenty-five miles northwest of Detroit. Is it what you’re referring to or you’re talking about the light at our twelve o’clock now about ten miles?
Cleveland Control: Any kind of target off to your twelve o’clock?
Masaba 3179: Ah… we have some kind of white light out there at twelve o’clock and the captain ah… says it’s pulsating. It looks like oncoming traffic. But it’s just sitting about the same place that it’s been the whole… here about ten or fifteen minutes we’ve been watching it.
Air Shuttle 5959: Year, Air Shuttle 5959. It looks like it’s almost over Saginaw from our position.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Air Shuttle 5959. Contact Saginaw Approach Control 126.45. I appreciate the information.
Masaba 3179: 3179, that target looks like it’s ah… below us. I would guesstimate maybe ten thousand feet.
Cleveland Control: Around ten thousand feet, would you think it might be like a reflection? Ah… maybe perhaps off a beacon that for some reason, it’s just one of those weird things. Ah… natural phenomena that you’re getting a reflection, cause I got nothing out there.
Masaba 3179: I don’t know. I mean we can see a clear, you know, relatively solid cloud deck… ah… below us and this is definitely ah… distinct whitish ah… well, now it’s looking a little red and greenish white, sort of pulsating light and it’s constant. It’s not a beacon.
Air Shuttle 5959: Air Cleveland, Air Shuttle 5959.
Cleveland Control: Go ahead, sir.
Air Shuttle 5959: Yeah. Hey, be advised we’re descending to four thousand feet right now and as we descend through ten thousand feet, that object is above us right now. It is not on the ground. It’s about ten thousand feet.
Cleveland Control: Ok, sir. We’re checking on it right now. I don’t have anything out in front of You at all I’m showing. I appreciate you coming back to the frequency and letting me know.
Air Shuttle 5959: I’ll keep you advised. I tell you what that is weird. It keeps sitting there pulsating.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, where is it relative to you right now?
Masaba 3179: Twelve o’clock sir.
Cleveland Control: I’m trying to do a little investigating as to what this might be. If you would keep me advised on this.
Masaba 3179: Ok, sir. I’m going to blink my lights at him and see if I can get a reaction. 3179, was the other guy that saw that light was he headed southeast bound or was he headed to (garbled)?
Cleveland Control: Well, he was inbound to Saginaw and actually when I sent him over to Saginaw, I expected that was going to be the last I heard from him. He came back up on the frequency and advised me that his clearance was down to four thousand and that he said that what he saw, was still up above him and was like a red… he said it was red and green light that was pulsing and like rotating. He said he would keep me advised and give us a report once he got into Saginaw. You don’t have a camera on board, do you?
Masaba 3179: We could probably get one from one of the passengers. You want us to ask?
Cleveland Control: Yeah, that would be kind of interesting to have a couple of pictures. I think… ah… might make our case a little better.
Masaba 3179: Ok, 3179, we got a passenger taking a picture of it right now and ah… we have a flight attendant who says that ah… they might have saw the same thing the other night.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, I copy that. Ah… Masaba 3179, when you flashed your lights, did you get any response?
Masaba 3179: Didn’t appear to, sir.
Cleveland Control: Ok, Masaba 3179, I’m going to send you over to Minneapolis now sir. Is it still on your twelve o’clock?
Masaba 3179: Ah… negative sir. It’s at about our two o’clock now. We ah… made a turn.
Cleveland Control: Ok, so it’s off your right side about two o’clock. I’d sure be interested to see those pictures. Can I ah… get you an address that you might be able to send a copy, if you get a copy of them?
Masaba 3179: Yeah, sure. We can do that and actually we made a right turn and he’s off about ten to eleven o’clock.
Cleveland Control: Ok, so he’s off your left side. Ok.
Masaba 3179: Ok, thirty-two-nine. We’ll see you. I wonder if those pictures will show anything?
Masaba 3179: Air Cleveland, Masaba 3179.
Cleveland Control: Masaba 3179, go ahead.
Masaba 3179: I just want you to know that I took a picture, as captain on the left side. I also took (unrecognizable) of some of the stars above, so the lowest light on those pictures. The only single light at the bottom of the picture should be ah… what you’re looking at. And you might be able to get a position with the sky if you want to go that far.
Cleveland Control: Ok, great. That’s a good idea, I appreciate that.
Masaba 3179: It was an instamatic camera. Good night sir.
Cleveland Control: Good night. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken: I had an incredible signing today. I was in the back garden sky watching and I had just zoomed in on a clear blue part of the sky with my Nikon P900 camera, when all of a sudden a saucer shaped craft flew directly into view. I was looking through the viewfinder at the time and I was very surprised by what I saw. I really wasn’t expecting to see any UFOs that close up. I was totally amazed. I could see that the surface of the saucer was very dirty looking like it was covered in soot, but what really caught my eye was the fact that I could see some sort of violet coloured energy being discharged from the back of the saucer shaped craft as it moved forwards through the air. I had never seen anything quite like it before. I could hardly believe what I was seeing… I quickly took a photograph of the saucer while moving the camera to follow the saucer as it flew across the sky. I was trying my best to hold the camera steady but it was almost impossible at such high magnification. The saucer then increased it’s speed and unfortunately I lost sight of it. I tried to reacquire the saucer in the viewfinder of the camera but it was no good, it was gone. The saucer had been at a very high altitude and I definitely wouldn’t of seen it without my Nikon P900 camera. It was just sheer luck that I was already zoomed in to that part of the sky when the saucer had flown in to view. What on earth could this strange unidentified saucer craft be? The photograph was taken at 10:58 AM on the 11th of March 2020 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
John Mooner is the Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos
Driving home on an extremely misty night I noticed four lights very close together and low in the sky. I was on a date and we pulled over to see what we were looking at because we couldn’t understand why there would be so many. We drove after the crafts to figure out what they were. Only to realize as we looked there were more and more of them at every direction. We stopped in the road when we came to a field on our left with a clear view of two crafts coming in from the left together and another craft closer to us and low down joining up with the other two while two more crafts where approaching from higher heights from our right. They all were blinking And completely quiet about the size of a car just barely over the tree line as well as at varying heights and distances in the sky. Some were moving faster than others but they seemed to be merging in some places and then continuing onwards while others floated around by themselves . All of the crafts had lights on them and because the night was so cloudy they all stuck out in the sky even the far away ones. We then drove Up to a cemetery on the top of town to get a better view and for over an hour saw over 30 of these aircraft some moving together then splitting up some just hovering while others moved close nearby them. Generally they were all heading in the east direction whether they immediately sped up to go in that direction or hovered in their area before eventually going over until out of view. I was able to see at least 10 at any given time and various distances away and heights throughout the sky with very dense fog on the ground. They seem to be never ending and unclear of where they all were coming from but it was obvious they were all heading in a similar direction I eventually started my drive back home again and saw a few more of them less concentrated and more staggered throughout the sky but right before I got into the next town over there was no mist and the skies were completely clear and empty there. Many people I know keep trying to tell me I saw drones, but I these had a solid structure with a wide front that was a front width of the length of a car . Seemed Pancake shaped with edges to it as well as a wide front. The sheer number of them as I know there where many more than what I saw in that hour is the most alarming to me. I followed up with the drone academy of NJ-the next day which isn’t far from that town and they reported no meet ups or any events that could have explained what I saw. They mentioned maybe government operations and to call local police. I did and they had no reports that night and said given the closeness of local small airports it’s unlikely anything non commercial would be allowed in that airspace. The officer I spoke to said growing up in the town that on a few occasions he himself had witnessed strange hovering lights overhead driving into town from the same direction I was. Still freaked out but very sure of what I saw. What I saw was unexplainable. I’m just happy someone else was with me to also witness it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Chief Investigator Glenn Green of MUFON New Jersey is investigating this case.
I am a 69 yeard old male. What I am about to describe happened to me when I was 16 years old. I have kept this event to myself my entire life as I believed no one would truly believe me. As I enter the winter of my life I wish to leave my story and perhaps it will help serious investigators with the UFO phenomenon.
I spent nearly all of my summers at a friend’s family cottage bordering Echo Lake, in Chepachet, Rhode Island. This is located in Northwest Rhode Island bordering Putnam, Conn. One early morning in July of 1966 I was up at sunrise and decided to go fishing at the end of our fishing dock which is approximately 20 feet over the water. It was a beautiful sunny morning, I was dangling my feet in the water and paying attention to my line when a dark shadow caught my attention. Turning to face the east I thought at first it was a storm coming in over the water when I noticed this gigantic disk coming toward me from the edge of the lake which I suppose was about 2 miles away from me. It had two rows of very large elongated dark windows in the center and descended slightly above the lake. It was no more than 50 feet in front of me when it turned west just above the pines and headed out. I heard several sirens coming from nearby Route 44. There were about 4 vehicles racing, police, sheriff, fire trucks following this object. For someone with investigative experience, I’m sure you could get their records. If someone from Mufon would contact me I can give significantly more detailed information. Date of event July 4, 1966. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is under investigation by State Director Ken Pfeifer of MUFON Rhode Island.
Hi Ken: Extremely bad weather had been forecast for the next couple of days so while the weather was fair I decided to go out into the back garden and sky watch. The sky was nice and blue and there wasn’t many clouds about so I sat down in my garden chair and began to observe the sky around me. I was looking through my binoculars when I spotted something unusual near a contrail. There was a UFO that looked just like a tadpole… It even had a tail that was flapping around behind it as it moved through the air. The surface of the UFO appeared to be metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off it. I was very perplexed by what I was seeing. I could not identify it as being any known type of aircraft or anything that I had ever seen before for that matter. It was very bizarre looking. I watched it for a while as it flew around the same part of the sky near the contrail like it was on some sort of fixed flight path. I then decided to take a photograph of the UFO so I put my binoculars down on the garden table and then picked up my Sony HX-300 camera and aimed it towards the UFO before I took a photograph of it. I put down my camera and then continued to observe the UFO through my binoculars once again. After about two minutes of watching the UFO it then shot off at incredible speed heading north where I unfortunately lost sight of it. I have seen a lot of UFOs around this area but I have never seen anything that looked quite like this. Why was it shaped like a tadpole? It just doesn’t make any sense… What on earth could it be? The photograph was taken on the 8th of February 2020, 11:39 AM at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
On June 27, 2006, five of our grandchildren were fishing in our pond about 3:00 p.m., when they saw a big splash on one side of the pond. Everything became still, and the pond became like glass as the object sank.
Then they saw a whirlpool in the pond about 8 to 10 feet across that moved very fast across the pond towards them. When it hit the water there was steam that went up from the object then the object disappeared to reappear in another area.
One of the children got on a boat that was at the bank, and she could see lights around the sides and the object looked like metal. Two other children said they saw the lights, but two of them said it looked yellow under the water.
Two were still watching it when they saw the water and grass around the pond next to them start to move violently, so they got scared and ran to the house. They were very disturbed by what they saw, and it took three hours before they would tell us what had happened. They range from 7 to 13 years old and all had the same story.
The next day we drove around and found truck like tracks that led towards the pond, but stopped before they got to the pond. There was a circle where the grass had been bent down in an arc shape at the edge of the pond as it splashed into the pond.
They said there was a cloud over them that was swirling. The older children thought it might be a tornado that sounded like a muffled lawn mower.
I asked the OSU Extension Agency to check for contamination. They informed me there had been two other similar incidents. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Eagle Point and White City, Oregon-3-20-2007 about 11 AM.
With my eyes it was first seen as a small, shiny, white dot. I got my camera out and tried to zoom in and couldn’t find it.
Then I saw the shining again and zoomed in and started recording, and it was dark again and then shiny again, and then dark again, before it was blocked by a tree and I couldn’t find it again, about 16 seconds of video.
It was just above the mountains and when I was recording it, it seemed to be moving south. When I watched it on the TV and on computer it appeared to stay in the same place above the same cloud feature. We were on Modoc Rd. headed towards Medford, Oregon, and it was east of us towards Eagle Point or White City.
I thought maybe it would turn out to be a plane when I watched it on the TV screen, but I still couldn’t tell what it was exactly.
The truck was bouncing me around and it was hard to keep it on the object and we couldn’t pull over because we were working. My husband was with me but he was driving and couldn’t see it.
There were no airplanes or helicopters in the area. It was a cloudy day, but no rain. There were no electromagnetic effects, missing time, or smells associated with the sighting.
A Wisconsin witness at Medford reported watching a hovering sphere in the night sky that split into three spheres before “turning off,” according to testimony in Case 79892.The witness and a friend were camping at Spearhead Point Camp-ground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest at 7 p.m. on October 13, 2016, when the incident occurred. “While I was describing the sphere, and scrambling to find a camera or our video recorder, the sphere split forming two spheres,” the witness stated. “When it split, it appeared as though the new sphere dripped off the original sphere. These spheres were originally aligned vertically, and then the lower sphere moved upward to be aligned horizontally. Once the spheres were aligned horizontally, one of the spheres split again. There were now three spheres aligned horizontally.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
September 10, 2016, Pepe (fictitious name), wife, 22 yoa daughter, and 15 yoa son were in the process of exiting their house to enter their vehicle. Son alerted Pepe about a bright light hovering above near the zenith. Pepe saw the light and remarked it was not only too high over the horizon to be the planet Venus, but also brighter. The object was stationary and to Pepe’s eyes it seemed to consist of two lights in one. Pepe asked wife to bring camera from the house and asked her to take a photo of the light. Wife took the first photo. Camera is an old Sony digital camera, model DSC-HX200V, with an integrated zoom lens made by Carl Zeiss. Wife handed over the camera to Pepe. Pepe took a photo. He waited a few minutes and when he tried to take another photo could not locate the object in the LCD screen. His son advised the object was still in the same place and after re-acquiring the object he took another photo. Pepe advised the three photos had different zoom settings.
After approximately 7-10 minutes a large cloud hid the object. After realizing it would take a long time for the cloud to pass they decided to enter vehicle and departed area. From time to time Pepe pulled over the vehicle in order to try to locate object, but the cloud was still hiding the object. When the cloud finally moved away the object was gone. Pepe regrets he did not try to take more photos of the object at different zoom settings. He thought at the time the object lacked any features and was not doing anything. His overall impression of the experience is that whoever controlled this object wanted for him not just to see it, but to take photos of it.

I have been gathering my own images of the Moon, Mars and Saturn for many years. I finally have enough to start my new discoveries web site for all to see. I have deleted countless images that do not make the cut because of poor quality or blurry images. All of these images are from Nasa. Nasa has countless web sites but finding the one web site with all of the great hi-definitions images is very hard to find. Nasa has published these images in plain sight but they make it confusing, for researchesr, to locate. please send your comments to email@example.com or comment on the site.
Everyone sees things differently but take a real look at these images and you will see what I have found. I do this for further investigation into the strange areas on the Moon and Planets. Maybe Nasa will investigate and launch future missions into these areas.
Debunkers, stay off of this web site. I have no time for your lies. There are many people who have their own agenda either through the government, UFO organizations or private sectors of the government. I will publish the best images I can find and keeping it real is the best way of getting this important message of ” alien life does exist on this earth”……… SIMPLE AS THAT………….
Government agencies keep the existence of UFOs from outer space secret from the public is well known. Most UFO encounters and pictures are classified material, which to this day have not been shown. But on 28th March 1989 Tass, the official Soviet news agency reported that the Soviet mission control center lost communication with it’s satellite probe Phobos 2, which arrived at Mars in January 1989, but not before it has beamed back two images. In July 1988, the Russians launched two unmanned satellite probes the Phobos 1 and the Phobos 2 in the direction of Mars, and with the primary intention of investigating the planet’s mysterious moon, Phobos. Phobos 1 was unfortunately lost en route two months later, reportedly because of a radio command error. Phobos 2 arrived safely at Mars in January 1989 and entered into an orbit around Mars as the first step at its destination towards its ultimate goal: to transfer to an orbit that it would make it fly almost in tandem with the Martian moonlet called Phobos to explore the moonlet with highly sophisticated equipment that included two packages of instruments to be placed on the moonlet’s surface.
All went well until Phobos 2 aligned itself with Phobos, the Martian moonlet. Then, on 28th March, the Soviet mission control center acknowledged sudden communication problems with the spacecraft and Tass, the official Soviet news agency, reported that Phobos 2 had failed to communicate with Earth as scheduled after completing an operation yesterday around the Martian moon Phobos. Scientists at mission control have been unable to establish stable radio contact. What had caused the Phobos 2 spacecraft to be lost? According to Boris Bolitsky, science correspondent for Radio Moscow, just before radio contact was lost with Phobos 2 several unusual images were radioed back to Earth, described by the Russian as “Quite Remarkable Features”.
SEPTEMBER 10, 2016 …………. HILTON HEAD SOUTH CAROLINA
Extremely bright ball of light traveling at a high rate of speed. After the 3 of us ladies on the way back from an airport pickup of a friend from Savanah airport, we saw a shooting star like object in the north in Bluffton, SC, on Bluffton Parkway, just over the outlet mall… Less than a mile away, we were driving to our destination into the Moss Creek gated community north, and turning onto our street at 10 miles an hour…around 12:45 a.m.. The area is extremely dark because of the sea turtles. A soccer ball size extremely bright object crossed directly in front of the windshield of our car, lighting up the entire area inside of our car, and the ground around the car, traveling from north of the golf course, going south, like it was following the golfing green south toward a golf course pond, and disappeared. We were excited but not frightened!
((ADDENDUM FROM ACTUAL EYEWITNESS #1 OF 2))
Hi, Peter, my name is ((name deleted)) and I’m reporting on an incident that took place September 10, 2016. It was 1:30 am, and I was delivering a friend from the Savannah airport to Hilton Head Island area, about 1 mile from the bridges. As we were traveling down route 278 about 3 minutes lee from our destination, my friend in the passenger side of the car and myself who was driven by both spotted what we thought was a shooting star, heading right toward the area of our destination. We both saw it at the same time, and dismissed seed it as just a shooting star. It didn’t seem to be quite as high as a normal star though, as I recollect. We continued into moss creek area and got our pass to enter the plantation area. We continued on three the winding roads and turned a sharp right onto our street. About 1/8 mile on all of a sudden from our right side of my car no higher then my eye level threw the windshield came a soccer ball of bluefish white. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
DECEMBER 4, 2016 ……….. HUNTINGTON BEACH CALIFORNIA
Duration: 10-15 seconds
Number of Craft: 1
I just stepped out of my friend’s house after a comedic session of Dungeons & Dragons. We’d watched TV, talked about video games, the usual for our age group. A normal Sunday night. I was the last one to leave. I didn’t expect to see something in the sky, but then again, I don’t think anyone does. It was one of those rare cloudless nights where LA’s famous light pollution doesn’t ruin a decent view of the stars over the suburbs. I’m originally from a very small town, so I don’t take celestial beauty for granted. I looked up at the sky to admire the stars, and that’s when I saw it. My first thought was “airplane”, but this was immediately replaced by “drone?” because it was too fast for a commercial flight, and completely silent. And then I thought that it couldn’t have been a drone, because again, it was completely silent, and the most common drones are quadcopters. This thing was in the shape of a chevron, and dark gray. It was a little larger than the moon, which was slightly farther away. Another thing that perplexed me besides the speed were the lights. Three of them, one on each wing end and one under the middle corner, unblinking, and a dim gray. I’ve never seen gray lights in my life. The chevron was headed southeast, when suddenly, without slowing down, it made a sharp, tight U-turn, pivoted, and disappeared before my eyes. I didn’t blink, I didn’t look away for a second, and there were no clouds for it to hide behind. It was there, and then it was gone. I don’t think we have the technology to make planes turn the way this thing did.” NOTE: The above drawing is from the witness.
DECEMBER 26, 2016 ……FLIGHT OVER ATLANTIC CITY NEW JERSEY
Time: 21:30 [ 9.30 PM ]
Duration: 10 min plus
While on a routine flight from New York to Miami, we saw a very unusual light. We were in unlimited visibility with a temp of -55c, approximately 100NM off the coast near Atlantic City and on a true course of around 160. Between 2130-2200 EST. I looked up I saw a very large and bright flashing light, which I brought to the other pilot’s attention. His response when seeing it was pretty much the same as mine…. “What in the hell?”… “What is that?” The size of object is hard to tell. The other pilot explains it as 3-4 times the size of the largest star around. I think it was 4-5x. The object was approximately 25-30 degrees up from our line of sight, when I first saw it. Its range of motion was between the horizon (from what I could see) to around 35 degrees up from our line of sight. At first sight the light was approximately at our 1 o’clock position. It moved to 12, 10, 11, back to 12. At that time, the light appeared to move North, then south at a pretty rapid rate. Or I would describe it as closer and further from our position as the size seemed to get larger and smaller. The light ended in the 1st position and then moved out east and once at our 10 o’clock position disappeared. The other pilot stated he could see an orange/red flash in between the white flashes. We did flash our lights at it a few times, and the other pilot believes it flashed back in sequence; I felt the return flashes were probably coincidental, but possible. The flashing didn’t really appear to have any pattern. The whole incident lasted a minimum of 10 minutes. Neither one of use have ever seen and/or heard of an occurrence like this. We were going to report it to ATC, but mutually decided to let it be. I have no explanation for what we saw, nor does the other pilot. We did try to video the incident, but it wasn’t possible.
