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 JohnMoonerfirstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Me and my girlfriend at the time went outside around 3 am with our dogs. For some reason I brought out my telescope out and was looking at the moon. The object came from the other direction. It stopped over our heads for a second and shined a light that lit up the whole neighborhood. Even though it only lasted a couple seconds I remember it being as bright as if the sun were out at noon. No noise, no air movement almost as if it wasn’t touching our atmosphere. And it just left extremely fast not up but went sideways changing a few different colors. It was out of sight in less than a second. I made a rudimentary website which has been sabatoged since talking about the event. Then things got weird. US marshals from Boston came to see me. There are 3 other witnesses that were present when the marshals came. They were asking me questions about if I noticed cars in the neighborhood and stuff like that. When they were done they stated that they were investigating and they had my back.? There is much more that has happened since then. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
One of the most baffling and most publicized cases of a close encounter of the second kind occurred in 1957 at Levelland, Texas. Actually, there were no less than eight well-documented reports of the same craft, and seven more that were unverified; the seven called in by anonymous persons.
Some of those who made their reports have kept their names secret. Sadly, this is the case in many UFO reports. Many of those who had thought they were doing the right thing have regretted their decisions later because of public ridicule. However, the Levelland case has many respectable witnesses who have come forward, especially several members of the Levelland Police Department who witnessed the fantastic sights of November, 2, 1957 in the town of about 10,000.
To understand the full impact of this case, a chronological account is preferred. 11:00 P.M… Only one hour after the Russian Government launched their second dog-carrying satellite, and before America was aware of it, an unusual set of events began in the small town of Levelland. Patrolman A. J. Fowler was on desk duty when he received the first of fifteen different frantic phone calls in what would be an unforgettable night for him and his fellow officers.
About four miles west of Levelland, Pedro Saucedo and his friend Joe Salaz were driving in Pedro’s pickup truck when they saw a brightly lighted, cigar-shaped object moving in their direction. As the object approached, Pedro’s car engine began to sputter, and his headlights went out. Finally, the car rolled to a stop. Later, a terrified Saucedo would sign a statement which indicated that the object was about 200 foot long. Calling Fowler from the small town of Whiteface, his call was dismissed by Fowler, who thought that the two men had been drinking.
11:45 P.M… Fowler receives a second call from a man identified only as Mr. W. The man was driving near the town of Whitharral, about four miles east of Levelland, when he came upon a brilliantly lit egg-shaped object, actually sitting on the pavement in the middle of the road. Mr. W’s car engine stopped, and his headlights failed. Frightened, he left his vehicle, and after a brief period of time, the object silently lifted up to about 200 ft. and disappeared. His car started back up, and he sped away to make his phone call to Fowler.
12:00 A.M… Fowler receives a third call, this time from a man who was traveling 11 miles north of Levelland, when he spotted an unusual flying craft landed on the road. His car also faltered, and he sat watching the silent object for a brief period of time, until it rose up and disappeared into the night. Again, after the craft left the area, his car started, he left the scene, and called the Police station. 12:10 A.M… A nineteen year old freshman from Texas Tech University, Newell Wright, was driving 9 miles east of Levelland, when his car engine began to cut out, and his lights falter.
After stopping his car and checking for some loose wire under the hood, he suddenly noticed a vivid object sitting on the pavement ahead of him. He described the object as about 125 foot long, and a bluish-green in color. Frightened, he tried to start his car again to no avail. He sat in his car; hoping that another car would come by.
None did. After a little while, the object silently rose and faded away into the sky. Afraid to make a report, the young student waited to tell his parents when they arrived home from a trip. They encouraged him to report what he had seen. He made a statement at the Sheriff’s office, and his report was included in the US Air Force’s Project Blue Book.
12:15 A.M… Officer Fowler receives another call. This time from a man in a phone booth near Whitharral, who, as he was driving 9 miles north of Levelland, encountered an object of some kind sitting in the middle of the road. He had the same mechanical problems as the other motorists, and after the craft took off, his engine started again.
At this point, Fowler’s curiosity and concern motivated him to call the other patrol cars in the area, and report what he had heard from the different travelers. Later, he would state that “something odd” was going on. In a matter of a few minutes, two different Officers radioed in that they had seen two different flying objects with extremely bright lights, but had not yet encountered any engine problems. 12:45 A.M… A man driving west of Levelland very close to the spot of Saucedo’s initial sighting, sees a large orange ball approaching in his direction.
The man testifies that this unknown craft softly lands on the road about 1/4 mile away. The motorist also related a very interesting fact. He stated that the craft, orange at first, became a bluish-green color upon landing on the road. He also noticed that the craft spanned the width of the road. After the craft landed, his engine also failed, and he sat in the cab of his truck, which was lit up by the glow from the craft. After a time, the craft lifted up and left the area.
This man did not make a report at the time of the sighting, but did file a report the next day. 1:15 A.M… Fowler receives a call from a truck driver from Waco, Texas, who states that while driving northeast of Levelland, he witnessed a large, glowing object, and at the same time, his truck engine failed. Fowler noted that the caller was extremely frightened. The driver added that the object was about 200 ft. long, and after it left the area, his truck roared back to life, and he “got the hell out of there.”
1:30 A.M… Fowler receives the first definite sighting of the object by two law enforcement officers. Sheriff Clem and Deputy McCullough, who were receiving constant updates from Fowler, had observed a “large, glowing object,” pass across the highway. The two officers were trying to track the object by the radio calls from Fowler. They were about 4-5 miles outside of Levelland when they saw the object. The two officers stated that the object looked like a large, red sun and it lit up the entire highway as it passed over.
The events of the night finally came to an end. Fowler would later state that he had received no less than fifteen calls from observers who claimed to have seen the unusual craft. He also said that they were legitimately excited, and some of them extremely frightened. The unusual number of witnesses to the Levelland events only solidified the theory that some unusual craft had been in the area of the city for at least 2 1/2 hours that night. The dramatic accounts of the landings on the road set this case off as one of the most convincing cases of an encounter with the unknown.
The next day the small town of Levelland, Texas was bulging over with reporters, anxiously awaiting some official explanation for the events of the night before. The Air Force did investigate these sightings, but offered no reasonable cause for what was seen that night, save for an electric storm. The case is still considered “unexplained.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
November 10, 1957. Features: Brilliant illumination, physiological effects, animal reactions.
Mrs. Leita Kuhn had been going back and forth between her house and backyard dog kennels checking on an overheating stove on a snowy, windy night.
About 1:20 AM, everything was in order, so she shut the kennel door. The snow had stopped and it was dark, with no moon or stars visible.
As she stepped away from the kennel she saw a huge, glowing object in back, about 60 feet above the ground.
It was about 40 feet wide and 10 feet thick with a dome on top, and glowing with a phosphorescent light.
The top was brilliant and it hurt her eyes to look at it. Puffs of apparent exhaust appeared around the bottom increasingly, until she became unnerved by the spectacle and ran in the house.
When she looked out the window, the object apparently had disappeared. The time was 1:55 AM.
She stayed up all night caring for an apparently frightened dog that subsequently died of cancer. A few days later she sought medical treatment for eye irritation and skin rash, and was advised to report it to Civil Defense because of suspected radiation effects.
She developed an abnormal craving for honey, other sweets, and water.
For nearly two years she experienced a variety of physical ailments, some painful and emotionally disturbing. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
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.
Mrs. Mary M. Starr, a resident of Old Saybrook and a former teacher with a Master’s Degree from Yale, told the NICAP investigators that she had been alone in her home on the night of December 15.
“I went to bed early,” she said, “about 10:00 o’clock. Some time between two and three in the morning, I was awakened by a bright light in my room. I looked out the window and there was what I first thought was a crippled airplane in my back garden.
But when I got my eyes really open, I saw that it was a cigar-shaped object, brightly lit and with square portholes, hovering just above my clothesline. I could see men inside. . .”
The object, no more than ten feet from the north side of Mrs. Starr’s home, was approximately 20 to 30 feet long and dark grey or black in color.
It hovered motionless about five feet above the ground, between the house and the tool shed. She saw no wings, fins, or other appendages. Through its lighted windows Mrs. Starr saw two figures that passed each other, walking in opposite directions.
“I could see that it [the object] was so shallow that the men could not have been more than three and a half or four feet tall,” she told the investigators.
The occupants’ right arms were raised but no hands were visible. They wore a kind of jacket that “flared out” at the base, and their heads were unusual – square or rectangular, red-orange in color, and with a brighter red “bulb” in the center.
She thought they might possibly be wearing some kind of helmets. The lower portions of their bodies were below Mrs. Starr’s sightlines. She saw nothing else in the object, such as chairs or instruments.
A third being came into view from the left. As Mrs. Starr leaned forward to see more clearly, the portholes faded and the entire shell of the object began glowing brightly (compare with Mrs. Knight’s report). From the top end closest to the witness there arose a kind of six-inch “antenna” that oscillated and sparkled.
After five minutes of glowing steadily, the antenna was retracted and the craft began to move. It retraced its original path, gliding smoothly in the direction from which it had apparently arrived. It then made a very sharp right-angle turn, appearing oval in shape.
The hull had turned a dull grayish-blue and small, circular lights now outlined the entire rim. The UFO dipped and undulated, following the contours of a small depression to the north of the witness’ house, then tilted sharply and shot up into the sky at terrific speed, in total silence.
Since most of the other houses in her neighborhood were unoccupied at that time of year, Mrs. Starr was the sole witness to this strange appearance, although there had been previous reports during the preceding weeks of objects sighted in the area.
Because of her background, and because she had no conceivable reason to invent or embellish such a story, neither Miss Davis nor Mr. Hall could find any reason to dismiss her report out of hand. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Gordon Cooper was one of America’s original astronauts. He helped pioneer this country’s space exploration efforts when, aboard a tiny space capsule known as Mercury [Faith] 7, Cooper orbited the Earth for 34 hours, proving that man could live outside our atmosphere for prolonged periods. His patriotism, bravery and respectability go without saying…
Cooper has recently made several public pronouncements concerning his strong belief in UFOs. While a guest on the Merv Griffin Show, Cooper shocked the viewing audiences by speaking for over five minutes on a topic that was only within the past few years often considered too bizarre for polite conversation.
But there were some things that Cooper wouldn’t even discuss on the air in front of the curious multitudes. Luckily Lee Spiegel is a personal friend of Gordon Cooper. They have conferred on several occasions, and while in the company of the man who is bound and determined to crack the ‘Cosmic Watergate’ which he is convinced exists within the higher echelon of government, the former space traveler is more than happy to talk about his UFO experiences – and they are many.
In the early 1950s, Cooper was assigned to a jet fighter group in Germany. While stationed there, he remembers very vividly the week an entire formation of circular objects passed over the Air Base on almost a daily routine.
‘We never could get close enough to pin them down, but they were round in shape and very metallic looking,’ Cooper points out. UFOs were to continue to haunt him when the Air Force Colonel was transferred several years later to Edwards Air Force Base Flight Test Center in the California desert.
What happened one afternoon while he was on duty at this military base is evidence enough that the government definitely does keep a lot of secrets when it comes to UFOs!
The incident took place in the late 1950s, either 1957 or 1958 – as Cooper can best recall; and to this day, the photographic evidence of an actual UFO touching down upon the Earth is being kept under wraps.
During this period, Cooper was a Project Manager at Edwards Air Force Base, just three or four years before entering America’s space program. After lunch this particular day, Cooper had assigned a team of photographers to an area of the vast dry lake beds near Edwards.
In a taped interview with UFOlogist Lee Spiegel, the former Astronaut disclosed that while the crew was out there, they spotted a strange-looking craft above the lake bed, and they began taking films of it.
Cooper says the object was very definitely ‘hovering above the ground. And then it slowly came down and sat on the lake bed for a few minutes.’ All during this time the motion picture cameras were filming away.
‘There were varied estimates by the cameramen on what the actual size of the object was,’ Cooper confesses, ‘but they all agreed that it was at least the size of a vehicle that would carry normal-sized people in it.’
Col. Cooper was not fortunate enough to be outside at the time of this incredible encounter, but he did see the films as soon as they were rushed through the development process.
‘It was a typical circular-shaped UFO,’ he recollects. ‘Not too many people saw it, because it took off at quite a sharp angle and just climbed straight on out of sight!’
Cooper admits he didn’t take any kind of poll to determine who had seen the craft, ‘because there were always strange things flying around in the air over Edwards.’ This is a statement Lee Spiegel was able to verify through his own research efforts, having obtained closely guarded tapes of conversations between military pilots circling the base and their commanding officers in the flight tower, tracking the presence of unknown objects.
‘People just didn’t ask a lot of questions about things they saw and couldn’t understand,’ notes Cooper, who adds that it was a lot simpler to look the other way, shrug one’s shoulders, and chalk up what had been seen to ‘just another experimental aircraft that must have been developed at another area of the air base.’
But what about the photographic proof – the motion picture footage – that was taken? ‘I think it was definitely a UFO,’ Cooper states, as he makes no bones about it. ‘However, where it (the object) came from and who was in it is hard to determine, because it didn’t stay around long enough to discuss the matter – there wasn’t even time to send out a welcoming committee!’
After he reviewed the film at least a dozen times, the footage was quickly forwarded to Washington. Cooper no doubt expected to get a reply in a few weeks’ time as to what his men had seen and photographed, but there was no word, and the movie *vanished* – never to surface again….
On coast-to-coast television, Cooper recently made a blockbuster statement that had the telephone lines tied up the next day, as viewers telephoned the stations which carried the syndicated Merv Griffin Show, anxious to find out if their ears had been playing tricks on them the night before.
Toward the end of the talk-show host’s interview with the former Astronaut, Merv broke into a secretive tone of voice right on the air, and aimed a hundred-thousand-dollar question at his guest: ‘There is a story going around, Gordon, that a spaceship did land in middle America and there were occupants, and members of our government were able to keep one of the occupants alive for a period of time. They’ve seen the metal of the aircraft and they know what the people look like – is that a credible story?’
For all intents and purposes Cooper should have laughed for assuredly such a speculative story belongs in the category of science fiction or space fantasy. But Gordon Cooper kept a straight face when he replied: ‘I think it’s fairly credible. I would like to see the time when all qualified people could really work together to properly investigate these stories and either refute or prove them.’
The bombshell had been dropped. Cooper went on to say that from the various reports of UFO contacts and abductions he had been privy to, he was convinced that the occupants of this crashed UFO were ‘probably not that different from what we are,’ – that they are almost totally humanoid (i.e., have two arms, two legs, a torso and readily identifiable facial features) in appearance.
Taken aback by what Cooper had said over the national airwaves, Lee Spiegel telephoned Cooper’s office the following morning and managed to get past his private secretary, though others in the media were getting the cold shoulder.
‘Cooper admitted to me that he could have revealed more on the air, but he decided not to play his entire hand because he felt certain that some ‘official eyebrows were going to get raised’.'”
Just after turning dark while a tree crew was cutting down a very large tree limb in my back yard, that fell from hurricane Sally, a triangular craft flew over my back yard. This was strange because at first I thought it was a helicopter from the sound it was mimicking and it flew past us then noticed the craft circling the neighborhood and kept watching it. Then it flew directly overhead and could make out the exact triangular design of the craft and it was not a helicopter. When I first noticed it the front light was blinking a white light on and off like aa aircraft with two trailing red lights. Finally it flew directly over my back yard and I was looking straight up at it maybe three hundred feet high and could make out the exact shape of the craft which was a dark black triangle then it left.

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.
March 29, approximately 8:30 pm, my wife and I were in our back yard in Ringwood, NJ enjoying some time together, looking up at the stars as we regularly do. We noticed movement in the south west sky, heading in a north direction. The object was a similar size and brightness as the stars in the sky, but moving quickly. I dont know how to estimate the altitude it was traveling at, but I got the impression it was higher than the commercial flights we see often. No sound was observed. we then saw another object, same description as the first, approaching from the west, heading towards the first object. As the two got close to each other, they both stopped and remained still for approximately 5-8 seconds. The first object then continued North, while the second, changed direction and traveled south west. We observed the second till it blended in with the lighter sky in the south west as it approached the horizon. The first object was observed until our view was blocked by our house. I did attempt to video the first object, but the video only has our conversation and you can see a star. Not the object. Approximately 20 minutes later, we noticed a moving object directly above us, but again, very high altitude. Much higher than commercial air traffic. This object, slightly dimmer than the last two, and dimmer than the surrounding stars, was traveling in a North direction. After observing it for just a moment, it let off a tremendous flash. The light grew 10 times larger. ( I made a mental note of it as it happened ) it startled my wife and I so much we both yelled. It stayed that size and brightness for a second or two, then back to its original size and brightness. Its still moving, and we are still looking up, just in disbelief at what we saw, then it flashed again, this time smaller than the white flash, but this time it was orange, with a smaller yellow ring of light in the center. That just lasted again for a moment or two, then it went back to its original size and brightness, and continued North, until it was out of our view. It should be noted that I was anticipating the International Space Station to fly over. I have an app that alerts me when it will be approaching, and what its trajectory would be. The ISS was to fly over about 10 minutes after we saw the last object, and according to my app, it would have been traveling from east to west , much lower in the sky. I have previously recorded the ISS fly over, and in my opinion, the objects we saw did not resemble the ISS. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
This case is under investigation by Chief Investigator Glenn Green of MUFON New Jersey.
Zoey interviews Buzz Aldrin at the National Book Festival in Washington, DC, on September 5, 2015
I have been researching the Apollo missions for many years and the deeper I investigate the Moon landings, the more I am convinced that we did not go to the Moon in 1969 through 1972. The evidence is staggering. There were only a handful of people involved and it would of been very easy to fool the thousands of Nasa workers and scientist. I feel the pressure from President Kennedy to get the first man on the Moon by the end of the decade …..( 1970 ) and knowing that Russia was far ahead of the United States in the space race gave us no other choice. Russian’s Sputnik in 0ctober of 1957 and Yuri Gagarin orbiting the earth in April of 1961 made us look pretty inadequate in the worlds eyes. Even John F. Kennedy, before he died in 1963, approached Russia’s Nikita Khrushchev and wanted to make the Moon landing a joint adventure but Khrushchev refused. Kennedy did this because he was told by Nasa that it could not be done by the end of the decade. Gus Grissom was one of the Mercury Astronauts and would of probably been the Astronaut that would first step on the Moon but his constant complaints against Nasa and the unsafe conditions made him a target. On January 27, 1967 Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee would all die in a capsule fire while testing the Apollo 1 capsule. Gus would of never gone along with the fake Moon landing that Nasa would eventually ask him to do. They had to get rid of Gus but Nasa would have to sacrifice White and Chaffee too. Nasa did develop a rocket and equipment for the Moon Mission but eventually they also discovered it cannot be done safely. This is why Russia never went to the moon. They realized that it could not be done. Now the pressure was on. Something had to be done and faking the Moon Landing was the only option. I will be adding much more information in the future. I really hope we did go to the MOON in 1969 but prove it to me and millions of others who believe otherwise.
I have hundreds of Moon photos that show something is very wrong. I even have photos of NASA equipment with mold on it. This could only happen on Earth. I feel that NASA used the equipment and the Lander over and over again for the different Apollo missions. At the top of my web site you will see a button that says…did we really go to the Moon ? ….click on that and see many photos of the fake Moon landing.
The included picture was taken by my grandfather in the early 1930s. I scanned the image immediately after he gave it to me last week. I wish to remain anonymous since I don’t want anything to do with any research or whatever on this. I know it looks like an alien or a Bigfoot and I know my grandfather was telling me the truth about him taking this picture. That’s why I think it should be in the right hands. You are the only one I’m sending this to, so please respect my privacy and don’t contact me about this. [WITNESS STATEMENT]
The only additional information is contained on the bottom of the full size image, which tells us the following: The picture was taken in the early 1930s by the sender’s grandfather, who lived in Alaska. The entity was first seen when the grandfather was on his way to a lake. He chased the entity until he got close enough to take this one picture. It was some four months before the photograph was developed, being in in a remote, sparsely populated area.
The sender received the picture from his grandfather only last week His grandfather died the day after giving him the photo, and relating his story. To say the least, I was intrigued by this mysterious message. What could this image be? I downloaded it, and after looking at it a few moments, I knew it would be controversial to say the least. Little did I know that there would be more than one mystery to solve.
As I began the task of selecting and cutting the area around the small creature, I thought to myself: “Wouldn’t it be something if this was the real thing, even though it may never be proven as such?” What if this gentleman’s grandfather had really filmed a creature from another world, and I was looking at the proof. My excitement was only tempered by the thought of not being able to prove it one way or the other. I would soon be faced, however, with the second mystery. After doing a couple of trial runs, I was relatively pleased with the results, considering the fact that the scanned image was from a photograph approximately 70 years old.
As I looked through several of the cutouts I had made, I thought maybe I saw something… something else. The entity’s right lower arm/hand region seemed to be obscured; but by what? So I went back to the original scan, and starting working on that particular area. What I finally saw, or thought I saw was a second, even smaller entity. Is it possible that we had a female with her child? I had done what I could, and the results were inconclusive. I thought of the many other alleged photos of aliens, and how they were met with much skeptism. In other words, I have no definite answer as to what we are looking at here.
So me and my girlfriend at the time were headed up to my cousins house. It’s a really muggy dayand had rained earlier that day so we have all windows down and sunroof open, just enjoying the cool breeze. On the way there I notice 2bright lights on the ground to my right over behind some trees/ wooded area. I right away tell my girlfriend “wow the truck has nice bright high beams(lights)”… at that time I thought there was a back road there and this truck was driving there with its high beams on so I can see. I grab my phone text my cousin- Yo were like 10-15 mins away…When I look back towards the lights, they are now floating above the trees and I just got sooo confused and tell my girl the lights are floating on top of the trees”. Right away she says whoa! That’s weird record it. By the time I went into video and look for the object, it was in front above us. At this time I’m just in shock and start recording. I don’t know how it went from ground to above the trees to right above in seconds with no sound. we had all windows down, sunroof open; completely confused. We then see this object go from 2 lights into 3 lights, still no sound. Then this object, I don’t really know how to explain this but, want to say vibrating in the air. At that time some other lights came on and it just dashed to the west of us with no sound. I almost hit my girlfriend on the face with the phone when it just darted to the left, me trying to keep up with it.
Investigating this case is State Section Director Jack Nicholias of MUFON New Jersey.
A Monon railroad train crew reported seeing a UFO in north central Indiana. It was about 3.20 A.M. on Friday October 3, 1958… freight train no. 91 was enroute southbound from Monon, to Indianapolis.
In the cab of the diesel locomotive were three men – Harry Eckman, the engineer, Cecil Bridge, the fireman, and Morris Ott, the head brakeman. Ed Robinson, the conductor, and Paul Sosbey, the flagman, were in the caboose. Cecil Bridge, the fireman, a former air force man with 450 hours of heavy bomber time, begins the story as follows…
“… we had just pulled past a little spot called Owasco. There’s no town there – just a kind of crossroads. It was there we first noticed four lights in the sky ahead of us. They were moving lights. “About that time the lights veered west. They crossed the tracks ahead of the train – about a half a mile ahead of us, we estimated. They were moving pretty slowly, too, at no more than about 50 miles an hour, four big, white, soft lights.”
“Just the three of us in the engine saw the lights at this time. We were pulling 56 cars – that’s a little more than half a mile of cars – and because of the angle at which these things were approaching and because they were so low right then, the boys in the caboose probably couldn’t see them.”
“…I talked to Robinson, (the conductor), and told him what we had seen. During the time we watched these things, from Ewasco to Kirklin, we did a lot of talking on that radio. The dispatcher in Lafayette could hear us, of course, but he never cut in. Conductor Robinson continues the story.
“I was sitting in the cupola, looking forward over the train, when Bridge called me on the radio. I had already noticed the four gobs of light but I couldn’t make out what they were. They were half a mile ahead of the caboose – the whole length of the train. A little bit after he called me the things went away and we didn’t see them for a few minutes… then all of a sudden they came back.”
“I’d say they were only a couple of hundred feet above the train as they came toward the caboose. And they weren’t moving very fast – maybe 30 or 40 miles an hour. It was hard to tell – a fellow just doesn’t notice details like that under the circumstances.” “The freight train is pretty noisy, of course, but I didn’t hear any other noise, like the roar an airplane would have made. I think they were silent, or nearly silent, at least.”
“They flew over us one after the other – big, round white things that looked about the colour of fluorescent lights, kind of fuzzy around the edges. They didn’t glare and they didn’t light up things as they went over. They just came back toward us, over the top of the cars, one after the other. Then they went on down the tracks maybe another half a mile and seemed to stop.”
“Sosbey and I went out on the back platform where we could see them better, but they were getting pretty far behind us. We could see their lights but I don’t remember whether they were bunched up or not. They were just there, we know that. We could see them behind us, right over the tracks. Cecil Bridge, observing the same objects from the engine, describes what he and the engineer and head brakeman saw.
“When these things shot back over to the east of us, they lit up much brighter than they were before. They turned in line, going north or northeast and we noticed that they lit up in sequence – the front one first, then number two, three and four. They changed course and came back past the train. They were going in the opposite direction to us when they made this pass. I guess they were at least a mile or two east of us when they did it.”
The conductor, Ed Robinson, agreed with this description. He added: “We didn’t see them from the back end of the train for several minutes after they went away to the east and turned. But the boys in the engine were still seeing them. I got back on the radio with Bridge. He was watching them right then. They must have circled the train and gone north of us, real low, because the next time we saw them they came rushing up the tracks right in back of us. They were coming a lot faster this time – a lot faster than they had come back over the train the first time.
“They were just above the tree-tops along the right of way, and they had changed their way of flying — their formation. This time they were sort of flying on edge. Two of them were on edge – the two in the middle. The two on the outside were tilted at an angle both in the same direction. The four of them flew like that up the tracks behind the train – a tilted one on the east, two of them straight up and down, then the one on the west tilted just like the one on the east.
“When they first came back over the train we could see that they were round things – circular shaped on the bottom. Then when they flew up the tracks in back of us we could see – Sosbey and I – that they were about 40 feet in diameter and maybe 10 feet thick. The two flying straight up and down were approximately over the edges of the right of way and about 200 yards in back of the caboose. If they had been flying flat down instead of edgewise. They would have just about have touched edges so they must have seen somewhere around 40 feet across the bottom.” Fireman Cecil Bridge continues:
“We had flashlights in the engine and in the caboose. Up on the head end of the train – in the engine where I was –we blinked our flashlights at the things and we waved the lights. We thought we might get them to come in closer. They did come down over the train a few minutes later, as Robinson related, but of course, I can’t say they did it because we flashed the lights at them. At any rate they didn’t flash any lights back at us.”
“In the caboose we had a five cell sealed beam flashlight that throws a pretty good beam a long ways. When the things came down and flew right up the tracks behind the caboose, I grabbed that sealed beam flashlight and shined it on them. As soon as the light hit them they jumped sideways out of the beam. When they got back over the tracks I did it it again and they scattered. They acted like they didn’t care for that light at all.
“From the time Bridge first called us on the radio until the last time we saw them near Kirklin (38 miles northwest of Indianapolis) it was about an hour and 10 minutes altogether. They hung around the back end of the train but after we shined the light on them they didn’t come in close any more. While we were switching at Frankfort they stayed away back up the tracks, just hovered there, until we moved on. Then they followed us again. When they finally went away at Kirklin, they just zipped off to the northeast and kept on going and we didn’t see them anymore.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Yesterday morning March 24, 2021 between 530 – 545 am I witnessed a very large what I believed to be cigar shaped object slowly moving sw to slightly northeast headed directly over Cameron pass just to the right of Casseopeia. It was approximately 3000 ft in altitude determined by its trajectory that took it just barely over the pass and appeared to be heading downward. I first noticed it above me and to the right. From my estimation it was as large as a nuclear sub. I could not see an outline but determined its shape by the light configuration and trajectory motion. It was moving very slowly almost hovering and completely silent. On the bottom of the object there were a series of yellow square rectangular lights that appeared to be large windows radiating light from inside the craft. There were approximately 8 in a row along the underbelly then a break in the middle and then 8 more, all yellow and bright. I received the impression this was some sort of large transport. The lights were constant and not flashing. There was no other variation or other light. The only thing that varied was as it nearly went over the nearby trees it flared the rear light brighter as I focused my headlamp on the craft again as a further estimate of the size and shape imagine a very large nuclear sub minus the conning tower and propellers and add rectangular windows full of yellow light all along the under belly. It was very stealthy and flying lower than I have seen any craft fly in this treacherous mountain area. In the 8 mo, I have lived here, Gould, Co, I have seen zero small aircraft . I have seen other strange occurrences emanating from the Cameron pass area however, that were not airplanes. The only aircraft that frequent this area are jet liners and airforce craft at 30000 plus feet. I have seen two other strange aerial phenomena occur in this area within the past 8 months all moving in the same direction the cigar shape object seemed to be heading. Somewhere in or around Cameron pass. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
One of the strangest, most baffling cases in UFO folklore is the story of one Private First Class Gerry Irwin. On March 2, 1959, he awoke in Cedar City Hospital, and was completely unaware of how he got there. Irwin had been unconscious for twenty-three hours, and during that time was mumbling something about a “jacket on the bush.”
As he regained consciousness, the first thing he said was “Were there any survivors?” The strange tale of Gerry Irwin came to my attention from the notes of James Lorenzen, who is the esteemed director of the APRO group. The facts will leave one puzzled, and if there was any type of investigation by the Armed Forces, those details remain hidden to this day.
Irwin’s story began on February 28, 1959, as he was driving from Nampa, Idaho back to Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas, where he was a Nike missile technician. Returning from a leave of absence, he reached Cedar City, Utah, and turned southeast on Route 14 when he saw an unusual sight.
The landscape was brilliantly lit as he observed a glowing object, which crossed the sky from right to left in front of him. Startled, he left his car to get a better view, and watched the strange craft continue until it was blocked from his sight by a ridge.
His first thoughts were that a large airplane was making a forced landing. Wanting to render aid if possible, Irwin quickly wrote a note, left it on his car, and headed in the direction of the supposed crash. The note said, “HAVE GONE TO INVESTIGATE POSSIBLE PLANE CRASH. PLEASE CALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS.”
He attached the note to his steering wheel, and using shoe polish, wrote STOP on the side of his car.
About 30 minutes later, a Fish and Game Inspector stopped at the sight of Irwin’s note. He immediately took the note to the Cedar City Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Otto Pfief quickly organized a search party, and headed for the sight. Approximately an hour later, Irwin was found unconscious in the area, with no sign of a plane crash.
Upon arriving at the hospital, he was examined by Dr. Broadbent, who found that although Irwin’s temperature and respiration were normal, he could not be awakened. Broadbent’s initial diagnosis was “hysteria.” When the frightened Irwin did come to, he felt fine, but was still puzzled by the strange object he had seen. He also was at a loss as to where his jacket was, it not being on him when found by searchers.
Irwin was flown back to Ft. Bliss, and put under observation at William Beaumont Hospital for four days. He returned to duty afterward, though his security clearance was withdrawn. A couple of days later, while walking at the base, he fainted. He recovered almost immediately, however.
On March 15, he fainted again on an El Paso street, and was taken to Southwest General Hospital. His condition at this time was very similar to his state at Cedar City. Irwin awoke at 2:00 A.M. on Monday, and asked, “Were there any survivors?”
He thought that it was February 28 again, and was shocked to be told it was some two weeks later. He was again taken to William Beaumont Hospital, and placed under observation in the psychiatric ward. After a month’s stay, he was released, and deemed “normal” by Captain Valentine.
The very next day, seemingly without provocation, the Private left the fort without leave, caught a bus in El Paso, and arrived in Cedar City on Sunday afternoon, April 19. Returning to the scene of his strange encounter, he headed straight to an area where he found his missing jacket.
There was a pencil in a buttonhole with a piece of paper tightly wrapped around it. He took the paper and burned it, and seemingly came out of his trance.
Irwin had trouble finding his way back to his car, and turned himself in to Sheriff Pfief, who refreshed his memory of his first incident. Jim and Coral Lorenzen, hearing of the strange case, contacted Irwin after he returned to Fort Bliss.
He underwent another psychiatric examination, with the same results as the first. His case was reviewed by the Inspector General, who ordered a more complete examination. On July 10, Irwin again entered Beaumont Hospital. After being released, he did not report for duty on August 1. A month later, he was listed as AWOL. He has never been seen again.

Hi Ken : It was 3:00 am in the morning and I had gone outside to take some photographs of the moon. It was totally pitch black out there and I could see the moon and the stars but there was some cloud cover obscuring parts of the sky. While I was taken photographs of the moon I spotted an unusual light that was way off in the distance moving across the night sky. It was very bright and unwavering in appearance and I focused my full attention upon it and began to observe it. I then zoomed in on it with my Nikon P900 camera only to see that it was a cigar shaped object that was glowing a bright orange colour and had a red tinge around it. I managed to take a photograph even though It was miles away moving very fast across the sky. There was no sound that I could hear it was completely quiet outside. I watched as the object made some abrupt turns before it disappeared over the horizon where I lost sight of it. I have no idea what this object could have been. It was extremely bright whatever it was. If there was anyone else outside at the time they would have also seen it heading in a easterly direction. The photograph was taken in the early hours of the morning at 3:06 AM at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
According to renowned UFO investigator, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, one of the most well-documented “close encounters of the third kind” occurred in the Anglican mission village at Boianai, Papua, New Guinea, which was, at the time of the incident, still a territory of Australia. The Australian Anglican Church was very involved in missionary work, and ardent in sending its heralds to the island nation.
One of these was the Father William Booth Gill. Gill was highly thought of by his co-hearts, and all those who knew him. As far as the occurrence of extraordinary events was concerned, Gill was skeptical, to say the least, especially being a devoted Church worker.
The first hint of the events to come, began on April 5, 1959, when Gill saw a light on the uninhabited Mount Pudi. This light, Gill stated, moved faster than anything he had ever seen. A month or so later, his assistant, Stephen Moi, saw an “inverted saucer-shaped object” in the sky above the mission. Gill dismissed these sightings as some sort of electrical or atmospheric phenomena.
Little did he know, that these events, whatever they were, had drawn their attention to the sky above them, and soon William Gill would have one of the most celebrated UFO sightings to ever be documented, which was validated by a whole group of additional witnesses.
This extraordinary event would take place at 6:45 P.M., June 26, 1959. Father Gill saw what he described as a bright white light to the Northwest. Word of the sight spread quickly, and within a few moments, Gill was joined by no less than thirty-eight additional witnesses, including Steven Moi, Ananias Rarata, and Mrs Nessle Moi.
According to sworn statements, these thirty-plus individuals watched a four-legged, disc-shaped object approximately the size of 5 full moons lined up end to end. This unbelievable craft was hovering over the mission!
To their utter surprise, they saw four human-like figures that seemed to be performing a kind of task. Now and then one of the figures would disappear, only to reappear in a moment or two.A blue light would shine up from the craft at what seemed to be regular intervals. The witness watched the craft and its activities for a full forty-five minutes, until the shining ship rose into the sky, and disappeared at 7:30 P.M.
Glued to the sky, the witnesses would see several smaller objects appear at 8:30, and twenty minutes later, the first craft reappeared. This phenomenal occurrence would last an incredible four hours, until cloud cover obscured the view at 10:50. Father Gill prepared a full written report of this event, and 25 other observers signed the document.
This first sighting, a once in a lifetime occurrence, would incredibly be followed by another sighting the very next night. At 6:00 P.M., the larger object appeared again, with its occupants. It was shadowed by two of the smaller objects.
In William Gill’s own words: “On the large one, two of the figures seemed to be doing something near the center of the deck. They were occasionally bending over and raising their arms as though adjusting or “setting up” something. One figure seemed to be standing, looking down at us.”
(In a moment of anticipation, Gill raised his arms and waved to the figure.) “To our surprise the figure did the same. Ananias waved both arms over his head; then the two outside figures did the same. Ananias and myself began waving our arms, and all four seemed to wave back. There seemed no doubt that our movements were answered… “
Gill and Ananias continued to occasionally wave, and their waves were returned. Another witness, Eric Kodawara, waved a torch, and there were acknowledgments from the craft. Gill went inside to eat, but when he came back, the craft was still there, only farther away (smaller).
After a Church service, at 7:45, Gill again came outside to look for the craft, but clouds had appeared, and there was no sight of the object. The very next evening, the shining craft would make one more appearance.
Gill counted eight of them at 6:45. At 11:20, Gill heard a loud bang on the roof of the mission. Going outside to see what had happened, he spied four UFOs in a circle around the building. These four craft were extremely high in the sky. The roof was checked for damage the next morning, but none was found.
“Gill’s reports constitute the most remarkable testimony of intensive UFO activity ever reported to civilian investigators. They were unique because for the first time, credible witnesses had reported the presence of humanoid beings associated with UFOs.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On Saturday, March 20, 2021, I had just gotten home from a late night at work with my husband and 6 year old son in the car. Immediately after parking the vehicle, I could see diagonal from our house, a rather large and fairly close sphere hovering over the rooftop past a 3/4 story building on the next street over. We could tell it wasn’t directly above the building, a little farther out, but couldn’t ignore that this sphere was rapidly changing from reds, blues, greens, violets and emitting just the brightest lights I’ve ever seen on anything in the sky. I couldn’t stop watching as my husband and son went inside, I stayed in the vehicle and recorded for about a half hour, various videos. I watched and recorded as this object slowly within this time frame started from above this 3/4 story building, until I lost it below the rooftops of the 1/2 story houses. The lights would stop sometimes and just emit a bright white, like glowing white color and then go back to the same reds, blues, greens and violets. It was absolutely stunning and beautiful. I wish I would have tried follow this object and see if it had landed or where it eventually ended up.
On September 24, 1959, just before dawn, police officer Robert Dickerson was cruising the city streets in his patrol car when he noticed a bright falling object like a meteor. But instead of “burning out,” the object took on a larger, ball-like appearance, stopped abruptly, and hovered about 200 feet above the ground. Its glow lit up juniper trees below it.
The patrolman watched the UFO for several minutes, then drove toward it on Prineville Highway, turning in at the airport. The UFO, meanwhile changed color from bright white to a duller reddish-orange color, and dived rapidly to a new position NE of the airport.
The object flew over Redmond Airport, situated southeast of the city of Portland and hovered over the field, where it was observed for several minutes by FAA officials.
At the FAA office, Flight Service Specialist Laverne Wertz had just completed making weather observations minutes before, and had seen nothing unusual. Now Patrolman Dickerson, Wertz, and others studied the hovering object through binoculars. The UFO was round and flat, with tongues of “flame” periodically extending from the rim.
At 1310Z (5:10 am. PST) official logs show, the UFO was reported to Seattle Air Route Control Center. Logs of the Seattle center show that the report was relayed to Hamilton AFB. The Seattle log continues:
“UFO also seen on the radar at Klamath Falls GCI [Ground Control Intercept] site. F-102’s scrambled from Portland.”
Six F-102 fighters were scrambled from Portland. As they took off, the Air Force radioed the pilots of a B-47 bomber and a F-89 fighter on routine flights nearby, ordering them to join the chase.
As the Redmond Observers studied the UFO, they noticed a high speed aircraft approaching from the southwest. The Redmond log continues:
“As aircraft approached, UFO took shape of mushroom, observed long yellow and red flame from lower side as UFO rose rapidly and disappeared above-clouds.”
The UFO was seen again briefly, hovering about 25 miles south of the airport. Radar continued to show the UFO south of Redmond for about two hours, at various altitude changing from 5.000 feet to 52.000 feet. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I was outside sky watching when I spotted an object that was slowly moving across the sky right above the town. I looked through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera only to see that it was in fact a flying saucer. I could also see some type of distortion field around it, which was probably due to it’s anti gravitational propulsion system. I quickly zoomed in on the area of the sky where it was located and immediately took a photograph, capturing the saucer in a single image. The saucer then suddenly just shot straight up into the sky, which caused me to lose sight of it. I have witnessed this instantaneous acceleration many times before and each time, I am always left speechless by what I have seen. Even though the saucer flew up into the sky using it’s largest surface area, it exhibited no signs of drag as it cut straight through the air at terrific speed like a hot knife through butter. It really was quite incredible to see this technological advance craft move in this way. I feel very fortunate to have seen and captured it in a photograph. This is yet again another genuine flying saucer captured high above the town. These sightings occur on a regular basis around this area and cannot be ignored or trivialized. There is definitely something strange and mysterious happening around here. All I can do is keep documenting these reoccurring sightings. The photograph was taken at 1:24 PM on the 19th of March 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
I love to star gaze. I have seen many different satellites over the years and this was NOT a satellite. I was headed outside too warm my pickup up for work at 0545. It was a crisp clear starry nights sky out. Something caught my attention and I looked up. To my surprise I watched as an object was dropping into our atmosphere leaving a burning flame like trail. It was moving like a super slow motion meteor. It then slowed and almost stopped, changed direction and then kept moving. At this point I ran inside and grabbed my I phone and took as many pics as I could as it was moving away silently into the night. As you can see this is not a plane, train or automobile. I am not sure what it is. What I can say for sure though is that it burned into our nights sky leaving a short trail of what looked like a shower trail of sparks and flames, then changed direction and moved on. I wish I had my camera when it 1st came in. I watched it for about 30-45 seconds quite surprised at what I was viewing then realized I had to break away to get my phone. By the time I was able to actually snap some pics the burn had stopped and it was moving silently away from me headed North East.
It was about the length of a football field. Black, but angular features, almost like it was radar resistant. Was like a tall building on its side, with each level flat on the bottom and coming to a tip near the ‘front’. The UFO was seen about 300 feet above the ground at 39°00’08.6″N 94°23’45.6″W, I was driving eastbound at 39°01’01.3″N 94°22’28.7″W. By the time I got to the intersection at Lees Summit Drive and NW Vellie Rd, it had dropped to about 100 feet (just above tree line) and was about 1/4-1/2 mile north of its initial position. The movement of the UFO was like perfect motion, still, no shift in the wind, just a slow decent. It looked like it was going to land at around 39°01’24.5″N 94°24’23.1″W, but who knows. Maybe it was just trying to hide? I had my phone out to capture a recording, I hit record, but by the time I had passed the object from view, I noticed that my recording didn’t commence, I was extremely frustrated. I can’t stop thinking about what I’ve seen. I’ve never seen anything like it and can only be described as a UFO. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This sighting is one of the best recorded in Argentina, but it is practically unknown to English-speaking ufologists as it has been published in Spanish magazines only. Expedia Argentina has traveling information if you are thinking of visiting Yacanto to learn more about this sighting.
Perhaps for that very reason it has escaped the attention of the professional debunkers, but a more likely cause is that it is an extraordinary case for which their usual hand-waving techniques simply would not work.
It is a single-witness case, but this witness is a high-ranking officer of the Argentinean Air Force (AAF), who by a fluke was able to obtain a remarkable photograph as supporting evidence of his encounter.
Even in Argentina, and perhaps due to the association of the witness with the AAF, the case was not given much publicity until 1977, when it finally was reported in UFO PRESS (ref. 1).
(b) The witness. The witness in this sighting is Hugo F. Niotti, then a captain of the AAF assigned to the Air Force School for Sub-officers located in the city of Cordoba. Contrary to what many would expect, his involvement in the case did not affect his military career, and seventeen years later, when finally interviewed by Roncoroni, he had risen to the high rank of vice-commodore, occupying a responsible position with the AAF.
(c) The incident. On July 3, 1960, then Captain Niotti was driving from Yacanto toward Cordoba. The weather was inclement, typical of what one would expect for that area in the middle of winter. It was drizzling off and on, and the cloud deck was very low, perhaps 100-150 m.. The road was rather slippery, and Capt. Niotti was concentrating hard on his driving.
At approximately 4:30 PM, he was in the area of Villa General Belgrano, about 70 Km from the city of Cordoba. He had finished negotiating a wide S-curve, when he suddenly noticed a rather close and unusual object hovering near the ground to the right of the road.
Startled, he stopped the car, grabbed his camera, fortunately next to him on the seat, moved a few steps away, and proceeded to take a photo of the object, which was moving slowly. While he was engaged in winding the film to take a second shot, the object started to accelerate and disappeared into the clouds, which as stated, were very low.
The whole incident had lasted about 40 seconds and had developed into the most absolute silence. This eerie silence, coupled with the bad weather and the abruptness of the incident, gave Capt. Niotti a sense of irreality, which puzzled and confused him. In this mood, he jumped back into his car and continued his trip to Cordoba, where he proceeded to have the film processed.
Here is Capt. Niotti’s description of what he had seen. The object was conical in shape, with a height of 7-8 meters and a base diameter of 3-4 meters, with its axis almost parallel to the ground and its base facing the witness. It was at a distance of 80 to 100 meters from his location and moving very slowly toward the south, perhaps at 10 KPH, always parallel to the ground. It was rotating, also very slowly. It then accelerated very rapidly, attaining a speed of perhaps 200 KPH in 3 or 4 seconds, and disappeared into the low cloud bank. This sudden acceleration without any sound was inexplicable to the witness in view of his proximity.
The color of the object was a uniform dark gray. The surface was perfectly smooth without joints or rivets and had a definite metallic aspect.
(d) The photograph.
As an officer of the AAF, Niotti was naturally reclutant to divulge his experience and initially told only a few fellow officers, who persuaded him to send the negatives and copies to the “Revista Nacional de Aeronautica” (RNA); the editors of this official magazine transmitted the photo to the “Servicio de Informaciones de Aeronautica” (SIA), a technical service available to the Air force.
The SIA gave a good bill of health to the photo, and the sighting was reported by the RNA in its issue of November, 1960. It is remarkable that never before or after have the Armed Forces made public the results of a UFO investigation.
In the years to follow, many examinations of this photo have been done except, perhaps, by the so-called debunkers, and no negative options have been voiced.
There are two interesting details in the photo which must be emphasized. When Capt. Niotti saw the object, his perception was of a uniform color; thus, he was surprised –after developing the film— that in the photographic image the base of the cone is a dull black, without any gradation of color in spite of being oriented toward the sun, which was hidden by the clouds. The rest of the cone appears much lighter, to the point that it is sometimes difficult to obtain copies showing it clearly, due to the high contrast between the base and the sky background. The edges of the base, in the original negative, appear sharp and well-defined, even more defined that other elements appearing in the photograph. It seems as if the base of the cone were a total sink of radiation, reflecting no light.
The copy of the photo presented in this report is from a second-generation negative, and its quality does not compare with the prints made from the original negative.
The other anomalous detail in the photo is the presence of a horse whose head is turned around, its attention apparently drawn by the object. As anyone familiar with a rural environment knows, horses kept in pastures near roads become totally indifferent to traffic and will not interrupt their grazing for the presence of a car. Nevertheless, the horse seems to be looking directly at the object, placed halfway between him and the road.
The existence of the horse is fortunate, as it has allowed some estimates of sizes and distances. The Argentinean investigators have performed some photogrammetry using the original negative, and report that the horse is about 80 meters from the road, which places the object at no more than 50 meters from Capt. Niotti. No wonder he was surprised by the absolute silence!.
On the basis of these estimates, the dimensions of the cone were 7 m. in height and 6 m. in diameter, and it was 17 meters above the ground, in good agreement with the numbers indicated by Capt. Niotti.
But the most interesting detail, which I have reserved for the end, is that Capt. Niotti was extremely surprised when he inspected the copies of the photo and saw the horse, as he had not noticed its presence during the incident. This is a clear indication of his concentration while taking the photo, and his disorientation after the sudden departure of the object when he just jumped back into his car and continued his trip.
A case with a single witness usually is not even considered for incorporation into UNICAT, but in this instance we have two circumstances that allow an exception to the rule.
First, we have a competent witness, trained by his profession to observe details, who did not lose his presence of mind when confronted with the unknown. On the contrary, he reacted promptly, snatching his camera and jumping out of his car to obtain a unique graphic document.
And second, the photograph by itself lends enough credibility to the case to make it deserve serious consideration. Not only has the photo repeatedly been shown to be genuine, but it is inconceivable that the Air Force officer would compromise his career with a fabrication that would bring him nothing but problems and discredit. For those who know Vice-commodore Niotti, this option is unthinkable.
From the UNICAT viewpoint, the case also offers some interesting characteristics which confirm its value. Among the many parameters searched for when studying the case, there are two that are considered as particularly significant because of their high statistical incidence. Both of them apply to this sighting:
The first of these parameters appears in the UNICAT data base with a frequency of 33.8%, while LR shows a frequency of 37.9%, both of them being included within the ten most frequent parameters.
A third parameter that is not so frequent, but that seems to occur in significant cases, is also found for this incident. It is the RC parameter, i.e., “rounding a curve”. It indicates that the witness suddenly notices the phenomenon when coming out of a curve in the road.
One harsh November evening in 1961, Paul Miller and three buddies were on their way home after a hunting trip close to Minot, North Dakota.
Suddenly, something they described as a “glowing silo” landed on a nearby field.
They first believed that it was an airplane that had crash landed, but they were forced to change their minds when the object suddenly disappeared.
But when the four decided to drive away, the object reappeared and two humanoids stepped out of the craft.
Miller, who was struck by panic, shot one of the beings, apparently injuring it. The second being fled. On the way home, Miller and his team had a “blackout” and lost track of three hours. They then decided not to tell the story to anyone.
The next day when Miller arrived at his office (at the Air Force), he was visited by three men wearing black suits.
They said that they were from the government and they began asking questions about his encounter and Miller later recalled “that it seemed that they knew everything about me, and they probably already knew my answers”.
Instead it seemed that they were more interested in what clothes Miller had worn at the time of the encounter and the men followed Miller home to take a look at them.
The men made such a threatening impression on Miller that he didn’t dare to tell his story for many years.
HAWAII — An unidentified flying object spotted in Hawaii caught enough people’s attention to get the Federal Aviation Administration involved. FAA agents confirm they did receive reports about the UFO from police, who were getting several 911 calls about it. The callers all said they saw a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean.
Multiple videos show the object flying in the night sky near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli. “I look up and then I was like oh s***,” Mistina Sape said in an interview with a local news station “(I) started calling my husband then because they were all in the garage. I was like ‘hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see.'” They all did.
“I don’t know what it was. This one was going so fast,” Sape said. ABC’s Gio Benitez reports on the investigation into the UFO sightings. Sape has never been a believer in UFOs, but the bright blue object intrigued her so much that she jumped in the car and followed after it. Her investigation ended three miles later when the blue light, which she described as being larger than a telephone pole, appeared to fall into the ocean. It crashed through the water without making a sound. That’s when Sape and her husband called 911. When officers arrived, they all spotted a second light in the sky.
“My husband went (to) look up and he saw the white one coming. The white one was smaller; (it) was coming in the same direction as the blue one.” The white light passed over a nearby town and disappeared from view. Honolulu Police Department said it did not have any information about the case it could release. However, the FAA said it received a report from the department about a possible airplane down in the area. The FAA said it did not have any aircraft disappear off the radar nor any reports of overdue or missing aircraft. “To this day I don’t know,” Sape said.
Driving south along school land road along black river in Rochester Washington. noticed red blinking light followed by a triangular object with three white lights and one red light near front center. Objects appeared to be connected and moved silently above treetops. I estimate it was between 500 and 1000 feet in elevation. Clip of iPhone video attached as well as screen shot. Have observed this object near the same area in the past on several occasions as a pulsing red light with darken object trailing behind.
APRIL 18, 1962 …….NEW YORK, KANSAS, COLORADO, UTAH AND NEVADA
Very few of the crash/retrieval stories take place on a military reservation. The majority of the reports are from civilians who have happened onto the scene of an extraordinary event. The reported destruction of a craft near Nellis Air Force Base, outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1962 is the exception that proves the rule.
The vast Nellis complex is the one location where it seems a flying saucer crashed right into government and air force hands. And there are, literally, dozens of firsthand witnesses to the fact.
Like many of the reports of UFO crashes, the Las Vegas case was overlooked by most of the UFO research community. Frank Edwards, who mentioned the Roswell case in a single paragraph in his 1966 book Flying Saucers-Serious Business, wrote more about the crash near Las Vegas in his 1964 book Strange World.
Although he often wrote from memory and didn’t always check his facts as closely as possible, he did get the basics of the case reported before anyone else bothered with it.
According too him, an object sighted over Oneida, New York, was headed to the west. There were reports from Kansas and Colorado, and indications of something near the ground outside of Eureka, Utah. Something bright enough to later light up the streets of Reno, Nevada, like the noonday sun, and then turn toward Las Vegas, far to the south and hack to the east. It flared brightly and disappeared from the Nellis Air Force Base radar scopes at ten thousand feet.
This was an object seen by thousands as it crossed the country on the evening of April 18, 1962. The air force and debunkers quickly wrote it off as a bolide, a meteor so bright that it could light the darkened ground like the afternoon sun. That is, the reported explanation is of a natural phenomenon that is rare, interplanetary, but certainly not under intelligent control.
Edwards claimed that only one newspaper carried anything about the exploding object. The Las Vegas Sun had printed the story, and Edwards, without interviewing a single witness himself, had used that as the basis for his report.
The April 19 edition of the Sun reported BRILLIANT RED EXPLOSION FLARES IN LAS VEGAS SKY. Their story left no doubt about what had happened and the many witnesses to it. In the lead paragraph, Jim Stalmaker, a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, told of a flaming sword that started a ground search for a weird unidentified flying object that had the air force on alert in several states.
A spokesman for the North American Air Defense Command in Colorado Springs. Colorado, Lieutenant Colonel Herbert Rolph, told reporters that the first observers, in the Oneida, New York, area, had seen a glowing red ball heading to the west. It was at great altitude, made no sound, and disappeared in seconds.
Radar picked up the object, and operators watched it as it streaked into the Midwest. The Air Defense Command alerted a number of bases, including Nellis in Las Vegas. Reports indicate that fighters were scrambled from Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix.
In Nephi, Utah, according to the Las Vegas Sun, witnesses reported the glowing red object flew overhead. When it was gone, there was a rumbling like that of jet engines.
Edwards thought it might have been from the engines of the interceptors as they chased the UFO. Then, according to the reports, the UFO came down near Eureka, Utah, interrupting electrical service from a power plant close to the landing site. It took off a few minutes later, continuing to the west.
It was seen over Reno, Nevada, apparently made a sweeping turn to the south, and then disappeared from the radar screens east of the strip where most of the places to stay in Las Vegas are now located.
The Clark County, Nevada, sheriff’s office was swamped with phone calls about the explosion. Witnesses said the object was traveling almost horizontally northeast of Las Vegas until the final explosion from the direction of Mesquite, Nevada.
Sheriff’s deputy Walter Bun, who led the search and rescue unit, moved the unit into the Spring Mountain area in jeeps to search for wreckage. In a phone interview conducted in November 1988 Butt told me they searched through the night, and when the sun came up they continued, using aircraft.
They didn’t find anything of importance, except some ashes that could easily have been the remains of a campfire started by a hunter weeks earlier. When no one reported a downed or missing aircraft, Bun and the other deputies called off the search.
Also mentioned in the Las Vegas Sun story was Frank Maggio, a staff photographer Using the Las Vegas telephone directory, I looked up Frank Maggio. There was no listing for him, but there was a Maggio Photo Lab. Thinking it had to be the same person, I called. It was.
He couldn’t add anything to the story that had appeared in the paper. He described the UFO as a “tremendous flaming sword.” There was a series of bright explosions that broke up the trail across the sky. It vanished east of Las Vegas.
The next step seemed obvious. In 1969 the air force had announced the closing of Project Blue Book, the official UFO investigation. Six or seven years later, the Blue Book files were declassified, and anyone who could get to Maxwell Air Force Base near Montgomery, Alabama, could do research in them.
Not long after that, they were transferred to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and put on microfilm. Anyone with the resources could buy copies of them. Ninety- six rolls of microfilm at $22 a roll. All I had to do was check in the Blue Book files and see what they had to say about the case.
0n April 18, according to the Blue Book files, there was a radar sighting at Nellis Air Force Base that was at first labeled as “Unidentified” but later changed to “Insufficient Data for a Scientific Analysis.” On the Project Record Card (ATIC FORM 329) the case was summarized as a:
“Radar sighting. Speed of object varied. (Important to note that] Initial observation at 060, no elevation. Disappearance at 105 [degrees] az [at] 10,000 feet altitude. Heading tentatively NE, however disappeared instantly to S. Observed by search and height radars. ‘No visual.”
That last statement was ridiculous. No visual sighting, except for all those people in Las Vegas who called the sheriff’s office. No visual, except for Frank Maggio, who reported the fiery end to the object. No visual, except Walter Butt who led a search party into the desert to look for wreckage.
I continued to search the file, looking for a reference to the sighting from the Eureka, Utah, area: information that was available to the Las Vegas Sun, but not in the official air force file about the sighting near Nellis.
The master index showed no sighting in Utah on April 18, but did list a meteor on April 19. (Later notes in the file itself confirm the April 18 date.) The Project Record Card claimed: “Object came in over Cuba and apparently landed in rough terrain West of Eureka, Utah. Bright enough to trip photo electric cell which controlled city street lights.” They also note, “Multiple rpts. Attempted recovery by Col. Friend and Dr. Hynek.” They finish by noting the explanation is “Astro, probably meteor.”
There was a file folder available, but it was not filed where it should have been but stuck at the end of the April 1962 section. Included in it were a number of reports by military officers made shortly after the incident.
According to Captain Herman Gordon Shields, who was interrogated at Hill Air Force Base by Douglas M. Crouch, the chief of the criminal investigation sections:
I was flying a C-119 aircraft from the left seat [captain’s seat]. We were approximately two miles west of La Van, Utah flying at 8500 feet MSL. Our true airspeed was a little less than 170 knots. We were making a right turn from a heading of about 068 degrees to 165 degrees. We were approximately 25 degrees of bank on the aircraft and we had turned for about 30 degrees to a heading of about 098 or 100 degrees, somewhere in there, when it began to get very bright in the, cockpit.
The illumination was from above. It built up slowly. My first impression while the intensity was low was that it was the landing lights of another aircraft. Of course, when the intensity increased this was ruled out automatically. The cockpit was illuminated from above. In the C-119 aircraft there is an instrument panel in the middle of the cockpit up above on the ceiling of the cockpit.
The light source was coming from this area that was blanked out, in other words, straight behind this instrument panel because neither Lieutenant Larson, who was in the fight seat nor I saw the source of the illumination. We continued the turn. The light intensity increased until we could see objects [on the ground] as bright as day for a radius of five to ten miles from the aircraft.
This would probably be a diameter of twenty miles or so. Objects on the ground, on the hills around us, were clearly distinguishable. Colors were distinguishable. It was as bright as daylight. The intensity of the light diminished faster than it had increased. After the light had decreased in intensity we were still looking for the light source, and I noticed an object to my left between the wing and the lower part of the fuselage of the aircraft against the hills. By this time the light had decreased so that the hills were dark.
It was night again. And this object which I saw was illuminated. It had a long slender appearance comparable to a cigarette in size, that is, the diameter with respect to the length of the object. The fore part, or the lower part of the object was very bright, intense white such as a magnesium fire. The second half, the aft section, was a clearly distinguishable yellowish color. I would say the object was just about divided in half, the fore part being intensely white, the aft section having a more yellow color to it.
Later in the same report, Captain Shields said, “I saw only a slender object. I don’t know what the shape was. It was only a slender object … There was no exhaust, no trail following after it. It was clearly defined. I saw it for a period of maybe one to two seconds.”
Also available in the Eureka file was an unclassified intelligence report that ran to seven single-spaced pages on legal- sized sheets. Many of the witnesses reported only a ball of fire passing overhead. They reported a series of explosions after the object was gone (sonic booms?) and a trail of gray smoke.
A man in Silver City, Utah (name blanked out by air force officers in 1976) claimed that the object was a glowing ball of light about the size of a soccer ball. He said it was white with a yellowish tint and a bright yellow jagged flame coming from the rear (confirming the description of Captain Shields). The unidentified witness claimed:
As the object passed over Robinson [Utah), it slowed down in [the] air, and after, [a] gasping sound was heard, the object spurted ahead again. After this procedure was repeated three or four times, the object arched over and began descending to earth after which the object turned bluish color and then burned out or went dark. After the object began to slow down it began to wobble or “flshtail” in its path.
At the end of the report, Crouch wrote: The preparing officer is Chief Criminal Investigator, OS-9, Security and Law Enforcement Division, Hill Air Force Base, Utah. Preliminary analysis indicates that each of the observers interviewed were logical, mature persons, and that each person was convinced that he had observed some tangible object, not identifiable as a balloon or conventional type aircraft.
The theory that the object was a manned aircraft was abandoned due to the described shape and color and flaming tail of the object, plus the fact there are no reports of missing aircraft in this area. No unusual meteorological or astronomical conditions were present which would furnish an explanation for the sighting. No missile test firings are conducted in the immediate area other than static tests.
The hypotheses that the object was a falling meteor is questioned due to the statements of three observers describing the flat trajectory, plus the description of sounds emanating from the object. Due to the inaccessibility of the valley, ten miles wide by 15 miles long in which the object apparently came to earth, no further search for the object is contemplated. With the completion of this initial report, no explanation has been developed for the brilliant illumination of the area, the object itself, or the explosion in the wake of the object.
The final report was signed by Douglas M. Crouch and by Major Charles W. Brion, chief, Sec. and Law Enforcement Division, both at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.
Air force investigation of the sighting had also showed that the object came down near Eureka, Utah. An orange, glowing object that was bright enough to shut off the photoelectric cells had been reported in that area.
But even with the conclusions drawn by the first investigators of the sightings, the air force sent J. Allen Hynek and Lieutenant Colonel Robert Friend to Utah on May 8, 1962. Crouch accompanied them on their investigation. They spent “one full day” tracking down the witnesses in central Utah. (25) At the end of the day they decided that the residents had seen a very rare phenomenon known as a bolide. (26) That would be the end of the case.
Later Friend, writing to “Hq USAF, SAFOI-3b [Major Hart]” reported: The number of reports generated by the 18 April 1962 sighting, and the fact that the Air Force investigation came to a negative conclusion regarding the UFO, they indicated it couldn’t have been a meteor (Attachment #1), prompted further investigation by FTD [Foreign Technology Division]…
This investigation was completed in one full day and it was concluded that the object was a bolide. An attempt was made to locate the object but this effort failed due to the general nature of the data. Further study of this sighting indicates that the meteor probably struck in the area of the Wasatch National Forest; however, the Air Force has made no further at tempts to recover it.
Friend’s statement, the fact that he and Hynek went to the area, and the absence of conflicting data suggest that the most likely explanation is the one they offered. In fact, Dr. Robert Kadesch, an associate professor of physics at the University of Utah, confirmed that view with me. Also quoted in several area newspapers, Kadesch said, simply, it “probably was a bolide.”
But the official air force file, Friend’s letter, and Kadesch’s statements are not the whole story of the Utah end of this case. Interviews I conducted with the principals in the case create more questions than they answer. And the newspaper reports create an interesting enigma.
According to the Nevada State Journal, the object flew over Reno, passing west to east. Yet the witnesses in Utah universally claim the object was traveling from the southeast to the northwest. At some point the UFO seems to have reversed its course, and a meteor wouldn’t do that.
Among the first to sight the object was Sheriff Raymond Jackson of Nephi. According to him, he was on Main Street and “heard kind of a roar.” He glanced up and saw a yellow-white flame going west, heard a series of loud booms, and saw the lights in Nephi go out. Jackson noticed specifically the lights in the doctor’s office, but said, “All the lights went out temporarily.” That would become an important clue when the rest of the case was put together.
Also in the Nephi area were Maurice Memmott and Dan Johnson. According to a story published in the Nephi Times News, both men were south of town, working on their farms, when the object shot overhead. Memmott claims that he no longer remembers much about the incident, just a bright light in the sky that lit the ground like the sun. He told me that he now believes that it was a meteor.
Dan Johnson, on the other hand, remembers the event quite well. He. said, “The two of us were out in the fields … there were no lights so we were in total darkness.” It came over the southeastern horizon and passed directly over them. “It was a very bright light.”
Johnson didn’t remember hearing any sound, but did claim that the object landed somewhere in the northwest. He didn’t think it was more than five or six miles away.
Johnson also said that several men — he thought they might have been military though none were in uniform — came out to interview both Memmott and him. The men drove them back out into the country and made them point to the location where the object landed.
The Times-News confirmed Johnson’s story of the investigation and added an interesting note. The speculation was that the investigators were not from the air force, but soldiers from the army’s Dugway Proving Grounds not that far from the area.
Tracking the dates supplied by Friend’s report and the information available from the Times-News, it seems that the conclusion is correct. Two separate teams of investigators made the rounds in Nephi after the events. And a few people remembered talking to Colonel Friend and Dr. Hynek. Friend, it seems, was in uniform during the one day he was there. There is no way that the two teams could have been confused.
Sergeant E. C. Sherwood of the Utah Highway Patrol was also in Nephi that evening. He looked up in time to see the ball of fire and thought that it was something from New Mexico’s White Sands Missile Range. It was a bright light that was mostly blue and it seemed to explode right over him, throwing off a cloud of white sparks.
Sherwood’s wife heard the explosion and ran outside. She saw the bright light but nothing beyond that. She mentioned to me that the neighbors were also outside, looking up into the night sky.
A number of other residents in Nephi reported the explosions or the roar. Some of them explained that it was a series of explosions, twenty or thirty of them strung together Their descriptions ran from a rocket’s engine to an artillery shell flying over.
From Nephi, the object traveled to the northwest, toward Eureka, Which is about thirty miles away. It flew over Bob Robinson and Floyd Evans. According to Robinson, they were traveling south of Eureka when they stopped for a moment and climbed out of their pickup truck. Robinson saw the light in the southeast and pointed it out. Evans thought that it was a jet aircraft.
The object approached them rapidly and passed directly overhead. Robinson said that he thought it was no higher than five hundred feet. It was a flaming object, and he thought he could see a series of square windows on the craft almost hidden in the glow of it.
Robinson said that both men were frightened by the experience. They dived under the truck for protection. The engine of the truck began to sputter and run roughly as the object approached, and the headlights dimmed, but the engine didn’t stall and the lights didn’t go out completely.
As it reached them, the object seemed to slow, as if taking a look at the truck. Robinson thought the object or the light from it was visible for about two minutes. As it disappeared in the west, the lights of the truck brightened and the engine smoothed out, running normally.
When Robinson returned home, his wife, Betty, said that he looked as if he had seen a ghost. His face was white, and he was so excited that it was hard for her to understand what he was trying to say.
She was able to tell him about her sighting. While sitting in the house, she had heard the roar of the object as it passed over, and had seen the light. The interior of the house had been brightly illuminated with a strobing effect.
She wasn’t alone in her sighting. Joseph Benini, the police chief, said that he was at a city council meeting when they all heard the roar. Bernini said that it sounded like an artillery shell going over He saw the bright light but didn’t see any object. He had been inside the whole time.
As the object flew over Eureka, the street lights all went out. Bernini, interviewed by reporters, said that the street lights were on photoelectric cells and the bright light caused them to go out. According to him, no one else reported any power failures.
Bernini’s wife and son saw the light, but the son, David, also saw an object. Those who did see the object confirmed the direction. It was moving from southeast to northwest.
Many of those who saw it said that it was within a thousand feet of the ground. There was an object visible behind the glow, and Shields, the pilot, had said that he not only saw the glow but also the object. The important fact was that Shields was looking down when he saw it.
Kadesch, when asked, said that he believed the object was a bolide and that it had exploded sixty to seventy miles in the air. The flash was so bright that residents of Gridley, Kansas, reported seeing it. Others, such as witnesses in Reno, also claimed to have seen the flash.
Kadesch took it further, explaining that the people on the ground, looking up into the night sky, had no points of reference. It was difficult for them to judge size and distance, especially if they didn’t know exactly what they were seeing.
Kadesch, who hadn’t seen the object himself, but whose family had, still said it was a bolide. There was no doubt in his mind. when asked about the flight crews who reported the object below their aircraft, he said, “That information is too fragmentary. It could be the curvature of the earth that made them believe that.”
But in Reno there was an added complication. A witness there, Homer Raycraft, said that he saw a “big fireball traveling due east.” He claimed that the object disappeared behind a mountain range and then there was a big flash.
Others in Reno, such as Dwight Dyer, Reno bureau chief of the Associated Press, the controllers in the Reno airport control tower, along with the controllers in Elko and Las Vegas, also reported they saw the flash. It was described as a brilliant white with a long tail, changing to green, orange, and red.
Another aircrew also saw the object. According to officers at Stead Air Force Base, a Bonanza Air Lines pilot said that the light passed beneath his aircraft, which was flying at eleven thousand feet. That made two flight crews in two different aircraft who had reported the object below their planes. Coupled with the testimony of three witnesses in Utah who said the object was about five hundred feet above them, it tended to rule out the bolide theory because the meteor would have been too low for too long.
Another problem developed when all the material from the Reno newspaper was reviewed. The newspaper contained a drawing showing the path of the object as it passed over Nevada. The problem is that the drawing showed it traveling from the north, over a corner of Nevada, to crash to the ground near Eureka, Utah.
It was traveling, according to the Nevada witnesses, in a direction opposite that claimed by the Utah witnesses. Had the object been a fireball, everyone would have given it the same direction of flight. Those in Nevada would have been looking to the east when they saw it, but they would have talked about it moving in the same general direction as those who had sighted the UFO in Utah.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the object was seen over Reno and traveling to the east. It also reported that the light was seen in Las Vegas. The question becomes, how is that possible for a meteorite?
An air force spokesman at Nellis Air Force Base said that meteors are not normally tracked by radar. The ionized trail left by them is sometimes detected, but that is a streak on the scope and not a single moving point as described by the military operators in Las Vegas.
How do we know that the object seen in Las Vegas is the same one that was reported in Utah and over Reno? It looked as if we had two sightings: one over Las Vegas on April 18, and one over Utah on April 19. With two sightings, there isn’t all that much unusual to explain. A meteor fell near Eureka, Utah, and something else tracked on radar near Las Vegas.
But I knew that wasn’t quite right. I had talked to a man, who wishes to remain anonymous, who was in Eureka, Utah, on the night the “meteor” fell. He was driving through town and watched the glowing orange ball. He saw it close to the ground, but then saw it take off again. It knocked out the lights all over Eureka, before climbing out again. Something that a meteor could not do.
He was close enough to the object to see an oval shape and to hear a quiet whirring noise. It took off toward the west, heading into Nevada. He watched it until it faded from sight over Nevada.
The point here is that there was a witness who had seen the object come down near Eureka as had others. But unlike them, he had seen it lift off again, streaking toward the west. It suggested that the object hadn’t ended its flight in Utah. Linked to the reports in Nevada, it suggested that a single object was responsible for all the sightings.
The air force, which had received all the findings, initially did the same thing, linking the reports. Officers at Stead Air Force Base, Nellis Air Force Base, and NORAD all drew that conclusion. The reports from Utah and Reno claim the sighting was made about fifteen minutes after the hour (Utah, on Mountain Standard Time, reported the incident at 8:15. Reno, on Pacific Standard Time, reported it at 7:15).
The Nellis radar case, according to the official air force file, listed the time of the sighting as sixteen minutes after the events in Utah, but the official spokesman at Nellis said the Air Defense Command was alerted by the fire trail that was seen at approximately 7:20 P.M., Pacific Standard Time, or within minutes of the reports from Utah.
More importantly, fighters were scrambled from Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix after the radar sightings. Other documents included in the Project Blue Book files suggested that fighters had also been scrambled from Nellis.
Another point must be made. The reports, as filed in Project Blue Book, were deceptively dated. The Utah case had the time logged in “Zulu,” or Greenwich Mean Time, which means it was advanced at that time of the year by six hours. Add six hours to the 8:15 time, and you advance it to early morning the next day.
A quick glance at the file shows the Utah case dated April 19, and the Las Vegas case logged in local time as April 18. On paper it looks as if they take place on separate days when, in reality, they happened within minutes of each other on the same day.
There are other interesting notes in the official files. A spokesman for the 28th Air Division at Stead Air Force Base admitted the power in Eureka was knocked out and that fighters had been scrambled from Nellis as a result of the radar sightings there.
Then, on September 21, 1962, Major C. R. Hart of the air force public information office, responding to a letter sent by a New York resident, claimed:
The official records of the Air Force list the 18 April 1962 Nevada sighting to which you refer as “unidentified, insufficient data.” There is an additional note to the effect that “the reported track is characteristic of that registered by a U-2 or a high balloon but there is insufficient data reported to fully support such an evaluation.” The phenomena reported was not intercepted or fired upon.
Not intercepted? With reports in the files that clearly showed fighters were scrambled from Nellis and other reports of jets taking off from Luke?
What about the explanation that the reported track was characteristic of a balloon or a U-2? Which was it? A balloon track would be made at the whim of the wind, “flying” in the direction the wind was blowing, changing direction as it passed from one level to another.
A U-2, under intelligent control of a pilot, wouldn’t be flying an erratic pattern. Surely the radar operator would have been able to tell if he was tracking a balloon or a jet.
The response to the man’s letter was a lie, pure and simple. The evidence in the file showed that. But more important is the fact that the air force was claiming that the object might have been a U-2 or a high-altitude balloon. The reason they couldn’t pin it down was that there were no records of such a flight or balloon launch.
They were grasping at straws. Might have been a balloon. Could have been a high-flying U-2 spy plane. But it wasn’t either. Remember, there was a follow-up that claimed the object was so bright that it affected the photoelectric cells on the Eureka street lights. That is a good, logical explanation for the reported power outage, but doesn’t account for all the facts. The lights in Nephi, according to Raymond Jackson, were knocked out.
Photoelectric cells fooled by the brightness of the object do not account for that. And near Eureka, Bob Robinson reported that his truck engine and headlights were affected by the overflight of the object.” It seems that the UFO was displaying the same kind of electromagnetic effect that had been reported in dozens of other UFO cases.
So what do we have here? We have the story of an object that was seen to begin its journey over Oneida, New York. It was seen by thousands. In Utah it neared the ground, landed, and took off not on April 19 as claimed by the air force, but on April 18. It was close enough to the ground that people in the center of Utah got a good look at it.
It maneuvered while close to the ground, slowing down and speeding up. The witnesses in several Utah communities centered around the Eureka and Nephi areas thought that it landed. One witness reported it on the ground and then taking off. It continued its journey until it was close to Reno, then turned to the southeast, flew over Las Vegas, where it was tracked on radar, and then blew up.
Documentation for the sighting is available through a variety of newspapers, including the Las Vegas Sun, Los Angeles Tribune, Desert News and Telegram, Salt Lake Tribune, Eureka Reporter and Nephi News-Leader. Further documentation came from the Project Blue Book files and Frank Edwards.
It is a case that demonstrates the air force’s policy of explaining UFO sightings, even if they have to change dates to make the explanations wok. It shows that the air force would lie to the public about the UFO situation. And it shows that air force investigators, when handed a solution, wouldn’t ask the basic questions. They accepted the solution quickly.
That means that the officer handing out the U-2 or balloon explanations would know that all flights above fourteen thousand feet were tracked carefully. And he would know that U-2s aren’t like a privately owned Piper Cub or Cessna that operates below the critical altitude of fourteen thousand feet Flights are planned and logged, and those records still exist if there had been a U-2 flight in that area, the air force could have proved it.
And the same thing can be said for the high-altitude balloons. By 1962 they were tracked religiously. With so many commercial aircraft using the skies, the military couldn’t af ford to have a passenger plane fly into a research balloon. They knew where the balloons were and what tracks they took. The radar sighting might suggest a high-altitude balloon or U-2, but that isn’t the solution. Finally, the air force files connect the two events, though they eventually separated the reports in Las Vegas from those in Utah. On a page in the file that appears prior to the intelligence report prepared by Douglas Crouch, an unknown officer wrote:
On April 18, 1962, the Air Force Defense Command was puzzled by an aerial object that exploded and seemed to be a meteor, but had the unique distinction of being tracked by radar 70 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada in a blinding flash. An Air Force Defense Command alert reported the object was tracked and traced over New York, Kansas, Utah, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Wyoming, Arizona and California, so that its light covered almost as much area as that created by the big hydrogen space bomb test held later in the Pacific hundreds of miles high.
That notation is not in the Las Vegas file, but in the Utah file. And it suggests that radars in other parts of the country from New York to California tracked the object. The flight time, according to the Las Vegas sighting report, was thirty- two minutes, much too long for a meteor. A meteor would cross the United States much faster. And it means that the object, whatever it was, was not a meteor.
With the cases separated, the air force was able to deal with them piece-meal. The Utah case could become a bolide. Robert Kadesch, a scientist not involved with the UFO project at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or the Foreign Technology Division, made a plausible witness. His statement, reported throughout the country, sounded good, when the testimony of the other witnesses is overlooked.
It is easy to accept the Air Force explanations of the case if they are taken as separate events. It is easy to believe that the Utah sightings were the result of a meteor, although the original investigators, Crouch and Brion, said that they had no explanation for the sightings.
This also reveals that the air force was not interested in investigation or solving riddles. They were interested in clearing cases, slapping a label on them and letting it go at that. We know it because they interviewed the Utah witnesses such as Bob Robinson and Floyd Evans.
They interviewed a dozen witnesses, some of whom described the object and who said it was close to the ground. They knew that power had been knocked out in Nephi but reported only that the light was so bright it affected the photoelectric cells in Eureka. They ignored the information that didn’t fit with the bolide theory.
Something extremely extraordinary happened on the night of April 18, 1962. The air force offered a series of explanations ignoring the facts. But the witnesses who were there know the truth. They saw something from outer space, and it was not a meteor. It was a craft from another world. NOTE: The above image real but from another case file.
On 24th May 1964, Jim Templeton, a fireman from Carlisle in the North of England, took his young daughter out to the marches overlooking the Solway Firth to take some photographs. Nothing untoward happened, although both he and his wife noticed an unusual aura in the atmosphere.
There was a kind of electric charge in the air, though no storm came. Even nearby cows seemed upset by it.
Some days later Mr Templeton got his photographs processed by the chemist, who said that it was a pity that the man who had walked past had spoiled the best shot of Elizabeth holding a bunch of flowers. Jim was puzzled. There had been nobody else on the marshes nearby at the time.
But sure enough, on the picture in question there was a figure in a silvery white space suit projecting at an odd angle into the air behind the girl’s back, as if an unwanted snooper had wrecked the shot.
The case was reported to the police and taken up by Kodak, the film manufacturers, who offered free film for life to anyone who could solve the mystery when their experts failed.
It was not, as the police at first guessed, a simple double exposure with one negative accidentally printed on top of another during processing. It was, as Chief Superintendent Oldcorn quickly concluded, just “one of those things… a freak picture.”
A few weeks later Jim Templeton received two mysterious visitors. He had never heard of MIBs: the subject was almost unknown in Britain then. But the two men who came to his house in a large Jaguar car wore dark suits and otherwise looked normal. The weird thing about them was their behavior.
They only referred to one another by numbers and asked the most unusual questions as they drove Jim out to the marshes. They wanted to know in minute detail about the weather on the day of the photograph, the activities of local bird life and odd asides like that.
Then they tried to make him admit that he had just photographed an ordinary man walking past. Jim responded politely, but nevertheless rejected their idea, at which they became irrationally angry and hustled themselves into the car, driving off and leaving him. The fire officer had to hike five miles across country to get home.
A close-range sighting of a domed UFO occurred at Lynn, Massachusetts on the night of June 15. In a NICAP report obtained by Advisor Walter Webb, William Angelos, 20, a technical school student, said that while watching television at 11:10 p.m., he heard a loud, throbbing noise “similar to a rough-running piston engine” immediately outside his family’s apartment on Henry Street. His mother, who had just retired, also heard the noise.
Angelos immediately rushed to the door of their apartment, which was located on the ground floor. Looking out into the courtyard between three apartment buildings, he first noticed a red light above the parking lot in the courtyard. He then saw that the red light was on the underside of a large, solid, almost colorless object hardly more than 20 feet away.
The object was shaped like a disc, oriented in a horizontal position, flat on the bottom and with a domed upper surface. When first noticed, the domed disc was approximately 12 feet above the pavement, so that it was seen against the wall of the building on the opposite side of the courtyard.
It ascended slowly in a nearly vertical climb toward the west southwest and disappeared in the WSW sky at an elevation of 45 degrees, after a duration of at least a minute. In his investigation, Webb discovered that several other neighbors had heard the loud sound. At least one had seen the red light flashing through her window at approximately the same time Angelos reported seeing the disc ascending. Other neighbors reported having experienced television interference at the same time. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
At midday on June 10, 1967, Harold Trudel pulled to the side of West Wrentham Road near East Woonsocket, Rhode Island. The 29-year-old man reputedly had seen unidentified objects in the area before, and on this day he was determined to document them. According to his account, he didn’t have to wait long, as a metallic, dome-shaped object soon approached. As the UFO hovered over the power lines, Trudel snapped pictures for about five minutes. He captured seven images, which would become some of the most iconic UFO photos of their day.
We got another UFO sighting on our hands here in L.A., folks — but this one stands alone, as it offers some the best clear shots we’ve seen of what appears … well, you make the call.
An eyewitness shot these photos last Saturday while heading south on the 101 Freeway, just outside of Thousand Oaks as she was approaching Westlake Village around sunset. We’re told she was on her phone when she saw this thing hovering in the sky, flying in the same direction she was heading … with a group of lights trailing behind it.
The eyewitness says she shot three consecutive photos as quickly as she could, and as you can see … the unidentified object appears to have changed positions, both tilting ever so slightly and moving to a new spot in the sky. We’re told this UFO was only visible for a few seconds, before it literally vanished into thin air. We know … far-fetched, right?
That’s what we thought too — but we’ve been assured these photos are NOT altered, and they show what they show. We were skeptical — thinking these could’ve been tweaked in Photoshop — so we had one of our art gurus take a closer look to see what she thought.
Turns out, our own photoshop wiz seems to agree … these don’t look like fakes.
Our graphic artist tried an experiment with stock images of “glowing discs,” “UFO’s” and “flying saucers” … to see if the images could be manipulated in a similar fashion as the tipster’s photos. She concluded it would be hard to cut/paste these images with the exact angles of the tipster’s images. So, these photos do appear to be legit … or at the very least, probably not photoshopped.
We also reverse image searched these pics, BTW, and couldn’t track down ANY that were exactly the same — so again, it lends credence to the idea these were taken on the spot, without being doctored after the fact.
So, where does that lead us in the end??? Welp, depends on what you want to believe. On its face, this looks to be a straight-up UFO sighting. IF that is in fact the case — who woulda thought Hollywood had it right all along in its depictions?!?
PHOENIX — The cockpit audio from American Airlines flight 2292 from New Mexico to Phoenix sounded like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. “Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us,” a pilot can be heard saying. “I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast right over the top of us.”
The radio transmission from Flight 2292 was published on an aviation blog called Deep Black Horizon about the Feb. 21 passenger flight bound for Arizona. American Airlines put out a statement, saying, “Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21.” And the FBI said agents are aware of the incident.
“While our policy is to neither confirm nor deny investigations, the FBI works continuously with our federal, state, local, and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public. Anyone who is aware of suspicious or criminal activity should contact their local law enforcement agency or the FBI.” Astronomer Dr. Larry Wasserman from Lowell Observatory and Phoenix Lights expert Dr. Lynne D. Kitei both found the recording fascinating.
Two doctors with two different backgrounds, but both admittedly found the audio fascinating. “The pilot obviously saw something, he saw a UFO,” Wasserman said. “Pilots have been reporting strange anomalies that can’t be explained from their vantage point,” Kitei said. “The excitement in their voices, seeing something so unusual but we have to remember that it’s in New Mexico and white sands missile range is nearby.”
Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque said, “We have no knowledge of any object.” FAA air traffic controllers said they did not see any object in the area on their radarscopes. I think we wait and see but I would not jump on the alien hypothesis as the first choice,” Wasserman said. NOTE: The above image is CGI
HI Ken : I was watching the live Torbay NCI webcam, wishing I could be there in person looking out for any strange UFO activity. I had been watching the webcam for about 10 minutes when to my surprise I spotted two sphere shaped objects that flew down from the sky heading towards the sea. I didn’t hesitate I quickly took a screen capture, only just managing to capture the sphere’s just before they went into the water and disappeared from view. In the captured image you can see the two sphere’s over by Thatcher Rock. The first sphere seems to be matching the colour of the water, while the second sphere is matching the colour of the sky behind it, while reflecting the sun. It is common knowledge in the intelligent community that these objects have adaptive camouflage and are able to match the colour of the surrounding area making them much harder to see.
It’s very fortunate that they were captured by this webcam. I really wanted to go to Torbay and visit Daddyhole Plain in order to carry out a thorough investigation of the whole area but unfortunately I was unable to due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, which were still in place. It was just sheer luck that I had been watching the webcam right at that moment, allowing me to capture the sphere’s in a screen grab just before they had entered the water and disappeared from view. The image was captured at 1:37 pm on the 25th of February 2021 on the Live Torbay NCI webcam at England. All the best John. Check out the webcam at https://torbaynci.org/index.php/torbaynci-web-cam/
June 29, 1964 – Businessman Beauford E. Parham was driving home in the late evening, and was near Lavonia in northeast Georgia, when he spotted a very bright light in the sky coming directly toward his car.
The next instant it was directly in front of his headlights – a top-shaped object, spinning and emitting a hissing sound “like a million snakes.”It was amber-colored, about 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide, with a mast-like protrusion on top and small portholes around the bottom through which “flames” were visible.
The UFO disappeared, then quickly reappeared and stayed directly in front of the car, just in front of the lights (estimated 5 feet), for at least a mile while the car was traveling at 65 mph.
The top of the UFO was tilted toward Parham, who said he followed it in a “near trance-like state.” Next the UFO went up over the car leaving a strong odor like embalming fluid and a gaseous vapor. Then the UFO appeared for the third time, again heading directly toward the car; the motor began to miss and Parham stopped.
The UFO spun “like crazy” and then took off, disappearing in a “split second.” Parham began to feel a burning sensation on his arms, so he drove to an air base and reported the incident to FAA officials. They reportedly detected some radioactivity on the car (no formal report made). Parham’s arms continued to burn even after he washed them. An oily substance on the car persisted after many washings, the car hood was warped with bubbled up paint, and the radiator and hoses deteriorated after the incident. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
SEPTEMBER 2, 1964……..VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE CALIFORNIA
One of these launches would inspire an official government cover-up and provoke an investigation and search for the filmed record which goes on to this day. Here is what happened.
To the best of my recollection and based on sketchy records – the date of the event was most probably either September 2nd, 3rd, or 15th, 1964. The launch was of an Atlas missile.
It was an Atlas-F as I recall strongly, but it may possibly have been an Atlas.D. The flight was in support of the Nike-Zeus objectives. Nike Zeus was one of the United States’ projects to develop an anti-missile missile.
This particular mission was part of a test of an enemy radar-defeating system. The whole program in hindsight seems very primitive, possibly futile and even a bit silly. Nearly a quarter of a century ago in 1964 it was deadly serious business.
At the Big Sur tracking site we were ready to go as the countdown from Vandenberg progressed loud and clear on our radio. At the call of “ignition…. liftoff” all cameras rolled and scanned to the southeast for something to photograph.
“There it is!”, I shouted out as the Atlas leaped through the snow-white coastal fog blanket and both tracking mounts homed-in on the majestic “bird” in flight. The big Atlas could not have been more clean, clear and majestic We were “Go” for the operation.
The magnification of the B.U. was truly impressive. The exhaust nozzles and lower third of the Atlas missile literally filled the frame at this distance of over 100 nautical miles. With one tracking mount operator on azimuth and one on elevation working completely manually, it was not easy to keep the image centered in the early stages of flight.
As the nosecone package approached T + 400 seconds, sufficient angle of view had been established that we were literally locked down with the whole inflight package centered in the frame. No one on the site was watching the screen by this point.
Our mission to provide the engineers with a side look at three stages of powered flight had been accomplished and we were a very happy bunch, congratulating each other and letting the film run out in the 35mm motion picture camera focused on the Kinescope.
I took the cans of exposed film and headed down the coast to Vandenberg and our laboratory. Processing of the film would occur that night and the results would be ready for viewing the next day.
MEN IN GREY:
I was back at my desk enjoying the feeling of accomplishment from the Big Stir expedition when I was called by Major Mansmann, who asked me to come right away to his office at the Headquarters building. When I arrived, I found a movie projector set up in the office and a group of people waiting.
Among these I recall two men in plain grey suits who spoke little and watched me intently as the lights were dimmed and the film played on a bright screen. (Mansmann has since stated that there were actually three men present.)
It was a surprise and a delight for me to be seeing the kinescope recording from Big Sur after all the months of planning and weeks of work. I was quite amazed and very pleased with the quality, especially at the distance involved as we could make out quite plainly the separated nosecone, the radar experiment and the dummy warhead all sailing along beautifully about 60 miles straight up from planet Earth and some 300 to 500 nautical miles down range.
As we neared the end of the camera run, Mansmann said, “Watch carefully now, Lieutenant ant Jacobs.”
At that point the most remarkable vision of my life came on the screen. Another object flew into the frame from left to right. It approached the warhead package and maneuvered around it. That is, this … “thing”…flew a relative polar orbit around our warhead package which was itself heading toward the South Pacific at some 18 thousand miles an hour!
As the new object circumnavigated our hardware, it emitted four distinct bright flashes of light at approximately the 4 cardinal compass points of its orbit. These flashes were so intense that each “strike” caused the I.O. tube to “boom” or form a halo around the spot.
Following this remarkable aerial display the object departed the frame in the same direction direction from which it had come. The shape of the object was that of a classic “flying saucer.” In the middle of the top half of the object was a dome. From that dome, or just beneath it, seemed to issue a beam of light or which caused the flashes described.
Subsequently the warhead malfunctioned and tumbled out of suborbit hundreds of miles short of its target. This … unidentified flying … “thing” had apparently “shot down” an American dummy atomic warhead!
The lights came on and Major Mansmann said, “Lieutenant Jacobs, were you or any of your people fooling around up there at Big Sur?
“No sir,” I answered honestly. I was shaking with excitement.
“Then tell me … what the Hell was that?”
I looked Major Mansmann straight in the eye. “It looks to me like we got a UFO,” I said.
There was a stifling silence among the men in grey, civilian suits who continued to stare at me. Major Mansmann gave them what I can only describe as a “let me handle this” look.
“Well,” he smiled cordially, “let’s just say it never happened. You are to say nothing about this footage to anyone. As far as you and I are concerned, this never took place, you understand?”
I looked at the men in the grey suits. They were not smiling. I felt hot and anxious. I was sweating badly. I think I just sat for a minute looking blankly at Major Mansmann. I had just seen the most fantastic event of my life.
It etched a path in my memory as deep as the one put there almost a year earlier when President John F. Kennedy had been shot to death in Dallas. I wanted more than anything to see it again, to study it under a magnifier, to analyze the pictures frame by frame.
Major Mansmann did smile, nicely. “I don’t need to remind you of the seriousness of a security breach, do I Lieutenant?”, he asked.
“No, sir,” I replied.
“Good,” he said, motioning for me to stand.
He walked me to the door, speaking confidentially. “What you just saw did not take place,” he repeated. “It never happened.”
I looked at him once more. Something flickered way back deep in his eyes as he again looked at the men in grey then back to me.
“But … if at some time in the future,” Florenz Mansmann said finally, “you are pressed by someone about this and you can’t get out of answering, just tell them … tell them it was flashes from laser tracking, O.K.?”
And with that, I was ushered out the door and into over a decade of silence on the subject. Never mind that in 1964 we did not have laser tracking, nor did we or any other power on Earth have spacecraft capable of flying circles around a suborbital capsule. I tried to sublimate the whole incident out of loyally and respect for Florenz Mansmann whom I liked a great deal. While I did not talk about the event with anyone.
I did begin a period of intense research into the UFO phenomena.
My research interest in the field continues to the present. Of particular fascination is the relationship of the press to the UFO. This great Liberal bastion of free enquiry, this body of muckrakers which prides itself so highly on prodding and upsetting political figures, has played very prettily into the hands of those same government minions who wish to obfuscate the whole field of discovery, discussion and debate about the most perplexing and possibly most important scientific conundrum in the history of our species.
While chasing after Pulitzer Prizes for such relatively petty mischief as political dirty tricks at Watergate, or poor old Gary Hart and his happy harlots or the hapless Dan Quayle and his colorless, but merely mediocre background, The Press has persistently missed one of the really imperative stories of our time.
I told my small portion of it first, tentatively, on a late night talk show which I hosted in Eureka, California in 1973 on station KFMl-FM. The response I got to my revelation was almost as astonishing as had been the event itself.
My program director, Richard Van Pelt, came forth to tell his own tale of a CE3K which happened to him while he was an Air Force Security NCO in Iceland 20 years earlier.
A university physics professor at California State University, Humboldt who had worked on the H-bomb project came forth to tell about his firm belief in the extraterrestrial nature of UFOs. Since then I have met a number of other people whom I respect, whom I know not to be “fringies” or cranks or crackpots, but who share common experiences with UFO sightings and encounters.
And, finally, in 1982, 1 decided that my story needed to be aired to a broader audience. Eighteen years had gone by. I could not get it out of my mind after all that time.
Then, first in the trade journals, later in the popular press, there were hints of a new weapon system in the offing. It was some kind of satellite-smasher we were told.
Soon we would hear President Reagan himself disrobe the rumors and give us Star Wars (SDI). There were the rumors of aircraft being built which were invisible to radar (some said to the human eye, as well!) “Stealth,” they were called.
It is significant to recall that until very recently, the Air Force denied that they existed, too!
There were persistent stories of something called Project Snowbird where American pilots were being shown how to operate captured (or donated) alien space craft Something about the Big Sur film seemed to be part of the overall pattern.
I held back writing my story because of the Security angle until the truth occurred to me.
There was no “security breach” in this story. The damn thing had never been “Classified SECRET’ or anything else. I had been told simply that it “NEVER HAPPENED”! Therefore, I was free to tell the story to whomever I pleased since it was about a non event officially.
I wrote my article. I shopped it around. In the end The National Enquirer published it. And as now retired Major Florenz J. Mansmann put it, “Jacobs opened Pandora’s Box.”
I was contacted by a variety of investigators, buffs, cranks, proponents and detractors alike. James Oberg, a frequent “mouthpiece” for certain NASA projects and self-styled UFO Debunker wrote to disparage my story and to ask provocatively, “Since you obviously feel free to discuss top secret UFO data, what would you be willing to say about other top secret aspects of the Atlas warhead which you alluded to briefly …?”
I told Mr. Oberg where to put his misplaced cynicism.
Mansmann, now a Ph.D. research consultant at Stanford and a farmer near Fresno, California was besieged with requests for information, and for his version of what happened. My respect and admiration for him was vindicated as he categorically verified my account.
CONCLUSIONS: Academicians first gather data, then postulate conclusions based on what they find. From what I have gathered first hand, (primary evidence), pieced together from Mansmann, from a fine researcher named Lee M. Graham), from contemplation, discussion and debate of the material, as well as from the Air Force position on this and other related matters, I have come to the following conclusions:
(1) What we photographed that September day in 1964 was a solid, three-dimensional, intelligently controlled flying device.
(2) It emitted a beam of energy, possibly a plasma beam, at our dummy warhead and caused a malfunction.
(3) This “craft” was not anything of which our science and technology in 1964 was capable. The most probable explanation of the device, therefore, is that it was of extraterrestrial origin.
(4) The flashing strikes of light we recorded on film were not from laser tracking devices. Such devices did not exist then aside from small scale, laboratory models.
(5) Most probably the B.U. Tele scope was brought out to California specifically to photograph this event which had been prearranged. That is, we had been setup to record an event which someone in our Government knew was going to happen in advance.
(6) What we photographed that day was the first terrestrial demonstration of what has come to be called S.D.I. or “Star Wars.” The demonstration was put on for our benefit for some reason by extraterrestrials.
It is this aspect of the event, not merely the recording of another “flying Saucer” which caused such consternation both on the part of Major Mansmann when he told me “it never happened” and on behalf of the government in its two and one half decade cover-up of the event and the record we made of it.
It is this defense-oriented aspect of the case which has caused investigators to run into stone walls in trying to track down my story. The Air Force has alternately denied that I was ever an officer, that I was ever stationed at Vandenberg, that I was OIC of Photo-optical Instrumentation in the 1369th Photographic Squadron, that there was a tracking site at or near Big Sur, California, that an Atlas-F, or for that matter, any other missile was launched on or about the date or dates I reported.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. on the evening of December 21, as he drove east along Route 250 between Staunton and Waynesboro, Virginia, Horace Burns, a gunsmith in Harrisonburg, saw an immense cone-shaped object cross low over the highway ahead of him.
It was moving in a north to south direction at a slow speed estimated to be about 15 mph. The point of the cone was tipped slightly forward in the object’s line of flight.
It crossed the highway approximately 200 feet ahead of Burns and settled in a meadow to the right of the road, landing gently, “like a bubble.” At the moment the object crossed the highway, Burns’ car motor failed. The object settled in the field as he brought the car to a stop on the shoulder of the highway.
Burns got out of the car to get a better look. “It was 125 feet in diameter, at least, and 80 to 90 feet high,” he later reported. Its circular, sloping sides rose toward the top in six large, concentric convolutions that decreased in diameter and were surmounted by a dome.
The object was so large, Burns said, that when it crossed the road ahead of him it had more than filled the entire width of his windshield. In the gathering darkness, Burns could not make out with certainty the exact nature of the object’s surface material but it gave the appearance of a dull, metallic finish.
He saw no features such as windows, ports, doors, or seams on the object; however, extending around its base at a height of about six feet was a band of bluish-white light, sharply-edged and about 12 to 18 inches wide. The light was steady and did not flicker or dim. No landing gear was evident and the object seemed to rest lightly on the ground on a somewhat convexly curved undersurface.
Burns watched the object for from 60 to 90 seconds at a distance no greater than 150 yards when it suddenly rose straight up to a height of several hundred feet and, emitting a soft “whoosh” like rushing air, took off in a northeasterly direction at an exceedingly high rate of speed, again with its top tilted slightly forward in the line of motion. It disappeared from view in a matter of seconds.
Following its disappearance, Burns drove home and told his wife about his sighting, swearing he wouldn’t tell another soul because “they’d think I’m crazy.”
However, a few days later, a local radio program announced the formation of a UFO investigations group at Eastern Mennonite College, under the direction of Dr. Ernest G. Gehman, a professor of German at the college. At his wife’s urging, Burns got in touch with Gehman by way of the radio station to report his observation.
On December 31, Dr. Gehman traveled alone to the landing site and made a geiger counter test of the area. An extremely high reading was obtained, and was verified by the arrival of two DuPont research engineers who, having heard about the landing, had driven to the site the same day Dr. Gehman made his investigation. In fact, Dr. Gehman had been able to locate the landing spot (later verified by Burns) by the readings on his Geiger counter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In the mid-1960s a sleepy Wiltshire town became the unlikely epicenter of a UFO phenomenon. Warminster, in West Wiltshire, became known globally for what was enigmatically called “The Thing”. The Thing took many forms by those who claimed to have observed it between 1965 and 1977. The first sign of The Thing was during the Christmas of 1964, when residents heard a loud, unidentifiable whine. The strange sightings were reported in the Warminster Journal. Local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood was instrumental in making the phenomenon national news and in one year more than 1000 sightings of unidentified flying objects were recorded.
They continued to be seen on a regular basis between 1965 and 1977, and in many ways formed a key chapter of the 1960s . Although there have been few sightings in recent years, Warminster is still seen by many as synonymous with UFOs. With the army based on nearby Salisbury Plain, Warminster is well known as a military town. This gave rise to the theory that visitors from outer space could very well have been mistaken military aircraft. But believers shrugged off this theory believing that the military were one of the reasons Warminster had been chosen for visitations. Whatever the reason for the coming of The Thing, it has certainly put Warminster on the map.
In the early 1960’s we lived in Kansas. We were small children then had a house on the North End of Great Bend, on the North end of Morton Street.
One night in 1964 or 65, I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a ‘white cube’ that glowed like a light bulb. It had a red light glowing on the inside of it. There are or were quite a few radio towers in the area and one huge TV 2 tower farther to the North.
The ‘cube shaped thing’ flew around that radio tower like a moth flies around a light bulb, only slower than a moth and it never hit the tower. Also, the red light was fading on an off like the tower light. Now, I believe the object was trying to communicate with the tower. When I first saw the object I was transfixed like a deer in headlights!
I ran to get my dad but like most dads, he said not to bother him, so I ran back to the kitchen yelling for my two brothers to come. When I got back to the window it was still flying near the tower.
Just before my brothers got to the window it traveled across the field towards me. It started hovering around 75 feet above the ground and was approximately 200 yards away. That’s when my two brothers joined me at the window and started asking, “What is that, what is that?”
It spun so fast that it morphed into a spinning ball and appeared as a white streak as it shot almost straight up angling towards the North West and was gone. We were very excited at witnessing how it zoomed away. “That was fast, really fast!”, reverberated in the room.
At the North end of the street was a wheat field, then to the North edge of that about one mile is the Dry Walnut Creek and on the North edge of that was the radio tower. The radio tower was around one and a quarter mile from the kitchen window where I first saw it. The 15 houses on our street, including ours, lined up along the wheat field East and West.
Years ago a man asked me about the sighting. He showed me a lot of pictures of UFO’s and asked if the object looked like any of them? When I said ‘No”, he suddenly wore a strange expression on his face. I have no idea who he was. All I know is that he was someone my dad knew. I would like to ask him where he got the pictures and if this sighting was some sort of simulation.
The object was very clear, a perfect shaped cube – not at all blurry. As it flew around the tower it really tumbled and then sped across the field at 100 to 150 mph, rolled a little, but as it hovered it stayed on a perfectly flat plane and slowly turned.
It glistened: not bright like a 100 watt light bulb but still glowing. The light was uniform throughout the object. The red light inside the craft disappeared after a few seconds, then it spun into a ball and left.
As I mentioned the object was cube-shaped and reminds me now of the Star Trek Borg ships. I would like to know where the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, got the idea for that cube ship, although, the only similarity between my sighting and the Borg cube was its shape. I believe we saw the object because we are not alone on this planet. Whatever we saw flying around that radio tower still intrigues me today!
The way the craft moved makes me believe it was under intelligent control. It maneuvered deliberately from field to field, sped up and slowed down and changed height. It was the size of a small box truck: 20 feet wide by 20 feet long. Today, I believe that the craft was just curious as if it had just discovered us by perhaps following the TV signal with the sub carrier wave to its source. This is a true story and I wanted to share it. Sighting was reported by Wade Meyer. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
William Blackburn, a resident of Waynesboro, Virginia, was working at the Augusta County Archery Club off Route 250, near Brand’s Flats, when at approximately 5:40 PM, on January 19, 1965, he saw two objects in the sky.
One of these UFOs, the smaller of the two, descended to the ground and landed approximately 18 yards from the witness. From it emerged three beings of extraordinary appearance, each about three feet high.
They were dressed in clothes of the same shiny, peculiar color as the object. One had an extremely long finger on one Band. The beings’ eyes were particularly penetrating: according to the witness, “they seemed to look through you.”
As the creatures approached the witness, to within 12 yards, he froze in fright, a double-edged axe in his hand. After uttering some unintelligible sounds, the beings turned and reentered the object through a door that appeared to “mold itself into the ship.”
The object then ascended and disappeared.
Following the appearance of Blackburn’s account in the local press, the witness told of being visited by members of a government agency whom he would not identify, although he said he was told not to say anything further about his sighting.
In an investigation conducted by Richard Hall and several NICAP staff members, strong evidence was found to support the witness’ report of being silenced.
In spite of this, the investigators were able to secure some additional details on the sighting. The area of the reported sighting is close to Fishersville, Va., the site of another landing (but with no reported occupants) which had occurred less than a month before. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In the fall of 1973, October, I was 12 years old, I was watching TV (the six million dollar man) it was a new TV show and the only thing my stepfather watched (until “The A-Team” came out).
My mother asked me to take out the paper trash to burn; we lived on a dead end street beside a very large swamp area and separated our paper to burn out back. We had a large mowed field next to our house before the swampy area started, we always burned our paper trash at the edge of it before where the ground got too wet.
I reluctantly pulled myself away from the TV and ran out the back door grabbing the large paper grocery bag full of paper trash and a pack of matches. Planning to get this over with fast. I ran to the edge of the field, dropped the bag and flicked a few lit matches into it, waiting only a half second to make sure one would light the papers inside and ran back to the house eager to return to the new TV show.
As I ran in my mother was still standing on the back porch holding open the screen door with her back, once I was in the kitchen but not yet to the living-room, and my TV show, my mother said “Greg, what IS that?”
I walked to where she was and she stood gazing off into the darkening night sky, it was just after sunset, maybe 6 or 7 p.m. I looked to where she was looking and saw some flashing light in the distance and said “oh thats just a…” (ready to dismiss whatever and go back to TV).
That’s as far as I got, I realized it was not a plane… it was too low, and wobbling, the wrong colors and too slow…
It was about a half mile away, at a spot where the nickle plate railroad tracks intersected with interstate 65. There was a viaduct there where the highway went over the railroad tracks. From where we stood I could see the headlights from the traffic and this object just above all the cars and trucks.
The viaduct was made on 2 hills maybe 80 feet tall with a bridge over them so the train could pass underneath I-65 on its way thru the swamp. I-65 is pretty much north-south and the nickle-plate railroad that went under it was pretty much east-west. The object looked about the same distance above the traffic as the viaduct is tall, making its altitude about 160 feet.
I stared a moment, thinking, before stepping down off the porch onto the driveway to escape the light from the kitchen and see it better, and also to move toward it a bit… let my eyes adjust to the dark. It was not a plane, too slow, too low, a helicopter? no sound, not a blimp, too fast…
I realized rather quickly it did not fit any category of flying things I knew of. I stared at it intently, it had green, red and blue lights rotating around it, the 3 lights forming a triangle, and some whitish light… and they were pulsing, not flashing, and it seemed to wobble forward kind of due to the elliptical rotation of the triangle of lights.
From a distance it looked like 2 steps forward one step back, but now it was closer and I could see that’s how it moved, the center was sliding forward into the space between the center sphere and the outer rotating ring with the 3 lights mounted on it, as if you were walking while hula-hooping, and each time the hula-hoop was touching your back you would take a step forward, but it was a very smooth motion, and silent.
It was headed our way, and as it got closer I felt an overwhelming sense of awe and wonder and inside I knew this was unidentified, and flying… and an object! My heart was beating but I felt calm; hoping it was true, but thinking any minute it would reveal itself to be a helicopter or something else mundane.
It didn’t. It came directly at me and then this huge craft silently floated directly above me and my yard and my house and was now so low I felt sure it intended on landing in the field next to our house (it wouldn’t have fit).
Looking straight up at its underside I could see now the center sphere had a larger unattached, or loosly attached, ring around it and the 3 colored lights were mounted on that rotating ring. I think I could see the night sky in the space between the sphere and the ring as it went around.
I was thinking love and peace and I want to meet you, and let me see inside your ship… and it seemed to be in agreement as it approached, I squinted to look for windows in the center sphere. I think I saw some ports or something but they were small and blended with the surface, with all the glare and lights and it being night I could not be sure, but I did feel watched from there.
More than that I felt “telepathed at” or heard… or understood, or “linked to” whoever was there, inside. I felt in a dreamy state.
It was almost as big as a football field, if anyone was really in it they were in the center part, it was about 80 feet up. It took up 30% of the visible sky. My neck was bent back as far as it would go to look up at it. I felt the same feeling you get when you daydream. It felt good, euphoric.
It was going to land, I just knew it. It hovered there for 5 minutes or so, I felt euphoria and I had to concentrate hard to keep thinking clearly and study it, to remember everything, and not fall under its spell. It took effort to keep ‘snapping myself out of it’.
The bottom seemed to be mirroring the night sky above it, like it tried to be invisible. I realized it was so close I could hit it with a rock!… or my BB gun, or the 22 rifle behind our back door and make it crash here! and call channel 7 eyewitness news and be famous!
The very next rotation of that glorious ring rotated to the east, away from me… it was leaving! they heard my thoughts! I was already regretting letting my thoughts go from ‘peace, land, come here, I want to meet you’ to ‘get proof and be on TV.’
I ran in the house and the gun was not behind the door where it ALWAYS is. I ran to the living room and yelled for my stepfather to come look, but he wasn’t interested. I ran past my mom and back outside. My mom was still frozen at the back door looking up with her mouth hanging open. I knew even then the euphoria had gotten to her, she was mesmerized. Back outside it was really leaving, it slowly did its rotate slide, rotate slide to the east, away from me and my chance to meet them, I blew it.
It slowly hula-hooped due east and back over I-65 again, about mile north of where it first crossed west over the interstate, and disappeared into the distance. I felt sad as I watched it another 15 minutes floating away.
I didn’t know what to do, I called state police, they said nobody has reported anything, that left me with not much to say. I tried calling a small local airport but nobody answered. It was so low going over I-65 and all the neighborhoods, Willow Street, Old Ridge Road. Surely someone else saw it, all West Hobart should have seen that thing, surely anyone outdoors between Ridgeview Elementary School and I-65.
For the next week I watched the news and read the Post Tribune looking for anything, but nothing. I was never the same after that, maybe there really is a God, I didn’t know everything or have a logical explanation for everything anymore.
After all these years I have come to some conclusions. It was held aloft the same way a magnet is when held over another magnet with matching poles facing each other, I could “feel it”… it was not anti-gravity, it was suspended inside the earth’s magnetic field somehow, it was manipulating the magnetic fields around itself, silent, smooth, efficient.
But it had lights even though it seemed to try to broadcast the night sky on its’ underside. Why cloak itself, but have bright pulsing lights… why would aliens need or care to follow FAA regulations or any earth laws… why have lights at all if you want to sneak?
Was it trying to look like our air traffic? Why come out of your way to look at me and hang out here and let me see you if you are trying to cloak yourself? Did it see the flashes from me throwing matches in the garbage?, it surely went out of its way to come over here and look at me.
It did not want some normal plane or something to crash into it, that’s why the lights, that’s the only thing that makes sense, or maybe it was just taken for granted when building it that of course anything flying, at night especially, needs lights, right? By humans this logic holds.
I was amazed at the technology of that thing, hundreds of years ahead of mankind if not more!, but I think the lights were man-made, and the more I think about it the more I think it was a UFO for sure, but not from distant space, it was too “mechanical.” I doubt that thing could make it from one star system to another no matter how amazing it was compared to a jet or helicopter.
Maybe the original idea or some tech inside it was from outer space, but we were the ones who had it now, reverse engineered. We were the ones “hundreds of years ahead of man kind.” Now after seeing the tic tacs with the Pacific fleet, in comparison my old 1973 UFO seems like an old fashioned clunky version, almost a laughable funny flying machine, like how we now look at old black and white movies of early attempts at flight.
Maybe the telepathy thing was just my emotional state. Maybe.
I have included a graphic I made from memory and also a map detailing the exact path the object traveled. In the map I highlighted a county southeast of my location because after looking at many sites and forums for “my” UFO in case someone else saw it, I came across a rash of reports from Delaware County, Indiana at about that same time frame. And the thing I saw came from that exact direction. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
I have been researching the hi-definition image of Mars and have discovered many weird things. Tons of fossils and skeletons all over the landscape. The planet Mars has been explored remotely by spacecraft. Roughly sixty percent of all spacecraft destined for Mars failed before completing their missions and some failed before their observations could begin. It’s difficult to hear or read about Curiosity without mentioning its price tag. While $2.5 billion is not a small chunk of change, it’s important to consider that NASA spread the costs of the Curiosity mission over a period of time while it explores Mars. As of February 2021, Curiosity is still active, while Spirit, Opportunity, and Sojourner completed their missions before losing contact. these photos are from the Curiosity Rover.
Nasa seems to have hundreds of web sites and finding the right web site with hi-definition images is the mission. I have found most of these photos on Gigapan. Of course the images are very large and I have to scan the photos for a few hours to find these strange things.
Hi Ken : I had braved it outside to sky watch even though It was bitterly cold and after about 20 minutes I was getting ready to go back inside the house to warm up, when I noticed an object in the sky that was off to the west. At first it was moving around erratically before it started to move in a intelligently controlled manner. I looked at it through my binoculars and I could see that the object was some type of structured craft which had two sphere’s on the top of it. There was a strange haze around the craft as it moved through the air which I thought was probably due to the cold air around it. I put down my binoculars and quickly took a photograph with my Sony HX-300 camera and then began to zoom in on the craft for a close up, but before I could the structured craft flew off at incredible speed which caused me to lose sight of it. I was left feeling very confused as to what I had just witnessed. What could this structured craft have been? I would really like to know what these strange aerial objects are and why they are so prevalent in the sky around this area. The photograph was taken at 4:01 PM on the 16th of February 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
Location of Sighting: Moultrie, Georgia Date of Sighting: February 9, 2021 Time of Sighting: 10:16 AM EST
I was at our local Walmart. I always take pictures of the sky. I noticed a circular opening in the clouds and went to take a picture of it. I took 3 pictures back to back. The first picture captured this object. I did not see it with my eyes and I didn’t realize I caught it until I went to review the photos. I tried replicating this taking at least 50 photos to ensure it wasn’t an artifact. I was completely still when takimg the photos and whatever this was had to moving. It seems to have came straight out of the clouds downwards leaving a light trail. It had to be moving extremely fast. I enhanced the photos and you can also see some type of patern on the lower part of the object. Almost like sections and some kind of markings.
Note: This is an unusual photo. The “disk shaped” object could be an artifact, but the witness took other photos and the object wasn’t present. This suggests that the object may have been present and then zipped away.
At approx. 8:30 am on a clear sky morning I saw what at first looked like an airplane. I did a second take and said, “Holy F#@k, what the hell is that?” It was silver and looked like an old DC 9, with no windows, tail, wings, no noise, no trail, no engines. Hard to guess the speed, but probably about 10 miles an hour. It was about 20 degrees vertical from my viewpoint, and if it was huge, it may have been somewhere over the Park Rapids airport, about 3 miles South of my observation. It was only visible for about 6 seconds. I yelled at my wife to come and see while I grabbed my phone a few steps away… and it was gone. I was quick enough that if it was just a drone or something, I would have seen it fall or drop down. There are lots of small planes, medical helicopters, as well as small jets that use the airport, or fly over, and I am only 3 miles North of it. There was no noise from this Silver Cylinder, unlike all the aircraft just mentioned. Either a UFO or an amazing secret U.S. technology. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
3 people woke up to a loud noise at 3:30AM. We took time to find our glasses. We also took some time to lower the heat. We checked to see if the cats were okay. We looked around briefly to see where the noise was coming from. The sound was nothing that we could attribute to any normal day to day sound, but was most similar to the sound of a hovering camera or something of that sort. Except it was so incredibly loud that we all woke from our sleep because of it. It was so loud and bright that we opened the front door to go outside. Opening the front door, it was obvious that the sound was external because it increased in volume. Stepping out towards the sidewalk, we saw something circular and gun metal hovering. We froze for a second and then panicked and ran inside. Shut and locked the doors. The sound continued for a few more minutes. However, when we returned to the room the clock still said 3:30AM even though so many micro events seemed to have occurred during that time. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On March 12, 1965, James Flynn of East Fort Myers, Florida, an experienced woodsman, headed deep into the Everglades with his four hunting dogs. He had planned to spend several days there. On the night of the 14th his hunting dogs took after a deer. Later, hearing a sound like a gunshot, Flynn started up his swamp buggy and headed off in search of his dogs.
One of his dogs had returned, which he had placed in its cage, and it accompanied him on his search for the others.
Around 1 a.m., on Monday, March 15th, Flynn spotted something unusual that he judged to be slightly over a mile away. Whatever it was, it was hovering, shaped like a broad, upside-down cone, an estimated 200 feet in the air above some cypress trees. After a while it began flying off toward the Northeast.
After some 2 to 3 minutes, it returned to the same place, and hovered again, this time for an estimated 5 minutes. Then it took off toward the Southwest at a high rate of speed.
Soon, however, it returned to the same location again.
At this point, Flynn was only about a quarter of a mile away, and the object seemed to come down among some trees into a small knoll. Flynn figured, up to this point, that he was observing a helicopter of some sort, but then he began to study it through a pair of binoculars and he realized that he wasn’t looking at a helicopter at all.
Then he began to suspect that it was some secret craft from Cape Canaveral.
Flynn described the object as some 25 feet high, and twice that in its diameter. Up near the top were four tiers of two-foot-square square window-looking sections that emitted a yellowish glow.
The thing was metallic, and seemed to be made of four-by-four plates that appeared to be held together with rivets. Around the base there was an orange-red illumination that seemed to cast a glow on the ground some 75 feet around its rim.
Sometime later he regains consciousness. Finding himself initially blind he lays there for a long while until he recovers a small amount of vision in his left eye. By this time, the sun is shining and its Tuesday morning.
Flynn gathers up his dogs and makes his way to the home of Henry Osceola, a Seminole Indian who lived there in the Everglades swamp.
It isn’t until noon Wednesday that Flynn returns home. He and his wife go immediately to pay a visit to ophthalmologist, Paul R. Brown. Dr. Brown finds Flynn’s vision 20/800 in his right eye, 20/60 in his left eye. He notes a slight bruise over his right brow. The left eye appeared normal, but in the right eye he could not see the retina.
Flynn complained of hearing reduction and numbness in his arms and hands following the encounter. Under careful observation and treatment by Dr. Harvie J. Stipe, a physician who had known Flynn for 25 years, Flynn was treated, and soon those symptoms disappeared.
In October 1966, in a phone interview with Arizona physicist James E. McDonald, Flynn stated that the UFO was probably, he figured, some secret aircraft of ours, and that if he could ever prove it then somebody would pay for the good eye he used to have.
On March 26, Flynn, Dr. Stipe, and two others, returned to the encounter site in the Everglades, and there found a burned circle some 72 feet across. The circle looked like it had been swept clean of leaves, twigs, limbs — normal forest debris. Eight cypress trees were scorched from their tops down to about halfway from the ground.
In July 1996, Flynn made a rare public appearance at Port Charlotte, Florida, where he stated: “I’m waiting for the day someone turns up the truth about this thing. I hope I live that long.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Miguel [last name withheld] while doing his regular exercises and stargazing in his backyard, reported seeing a boomerang traveling from the northeast (generally over the greater Los Angeles region) to the southwest (generally over the Pacific Ocean toward Santa Catalina Island). According to Miguel’s CMS report, the boomerang was over 300 feet in size, had a dark surface, white exterior lights, no emissions and no sound. It maintained a constant speed and elevation, had “fuzzy edges”, and a “mist or shroud” about it. There were no colored running lights on the extreme ends of the boomerang. He saw a helicopter in the area after the object flew past. Miguel attached the artist’s impression of a boomerang shown below to illustrate what he saw. It was at a distance of more than one mile.
His description of the incident follows: “While doing my exercise in my backyard, I paused to look at the sky for Orion’s belt and other stars. I then looked northeast to see a boomerang-shaped craft about the size of two football fields, side-by-side. I thought it was too wide to be a military plane (and those make a ton of noise). I could not see a fuselage or red and/or blue [green?] lights at the ‘wing’ tips. The white lights it had remained constant. The outline towards the back was dim even before going off in the distance. The craft’s speed was consistent (did not speed up or slow down). I will attach an artist’s rendition of what I saw.”
MAY 28, 1965………….Townsville, North Queensland, Australia
May 28, 1965 – 3:25 a.m. local time – Duration 10-15 minutes – Aircraft Ansett-A.N.A. DC-6B – Photos Confiscated
The pilot and aircrew of an Ansett-A.N.A. DC-6B (call sign VH-INH) was en route from Brisbane, Australia, to Port Moresby, New Guinea.
The pilot called Townsville Ground Control and spoke to operator William Orr, informing him that his aircraft was being buzzed by a UFO.
The pilot gave his position as above or abreast of Bougainville Reef. The object was a flattened sphere with what looked like exhaust gases coming from it. It paced the airliner for 10-15 minutes, then accelerated and raced ahead and out of sight.
Photographs were taken during the sighting. The pilot was diverted back to Brisbane and from there flown to Canberra where the film was taken from him and we were told he was instructed to tell no person of this incident.
The audiotapes of air traffic control transmissions at Townsville also were confiscated. Some days after this air traffic controller Orr was told to “shut his mouth” about the incident, with the added threat that if he didn’t he might be dismissed by the Department of Civil Aviation.
BELOW IS THE UPDATED INVESTIGATION
“At 3.25 am, May 27, 1965, a UFO paced an airliner for ten minutes over Bougainville Reef off North Queensland. I do remember the incident well. It was unofficially named the Bougainville Reef sighting. It’s all documented.
“It’s an incredible story to say the least. The Federal Government went to great lengths in attempting to cover it all up and really carried on like bloody amateurs. It was too large to suppress, with too many witnesses, and to this day I cannot believe why they didn’t come straight out and admit the facts, without going on with all the nonsense they embarked upon with their incompetent opinions.”
“Just to give you an indication of how vital the circumstances of this matter were, in 1967 Dr. James McDonald, a professor in the Department of Meteorology from the University of Arizona in the United States, and senior physicist in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, came to Australia to investigate this matter as well as other Australian sightings, including the Papua sighting I have already spoken about.
“He was without doubt, just about the top authority on this subject in the United States. Now, what about him for a person of impeccable credibility and unimpeachable character? Makes you think doesn’t it?”
“Okay, I’ll go along with that. What was the result of his trip to Australia?”
Carter sat up. He leaned forward and began to tap and bounce his pencil on the desk. “Bougainville Reef is about 260 kilometres east of Cooktown, and details of this sighting were not made available until the arrival of Professor McDonald from America.
Anyhow this is what I became aware of. The Captain of a DC6 airliner, which I think was a DC6 chartered by TAA from Ansett, or vice versa, I’m not too sure now, but it was one or the other. The Captain described a ’round-shaped object’ flying parallel to them for ten to fifteen minutes, in a radio message to Air Traffic Control at Townsville.
The radio message was tape recorded on flight control tapes at Townsville. At the time, a man named Bill Orr was the control officer. Other members of the plane crew sighted and witnessed this object, and each of them spoke, and was taped, to confirm what they were witnessing.”
“The Captain advised the Townsville control tower that he was taking photographs of the saucer (which were confiscated), which continually buzzed his aircraft and letting off what the Captain thought to be red exhaust gases. Of course all of this conversation to the Townsville Air Traffic control officer was being recorded on tape.”
“Where was the DC6 travelling to?”
“From Sydney to Port Moresby. Looking back, I can now recall that when the pilot arrived back in Brisbane, he was immediately flown down here to Canberra, where he was quizzed as to what he had seen. Our Government authorities also seized the flight control tapes from the Townsville aerodrome with conversations about this incident. The Captain’s camera and films were also confiscated and the entire crew, after being questioned, were warned of a penalty of immediate dismissal if they spoke to anyone about this incident.”
“So what was the final outcome?”
“Well, things became a bit embarrassing for the Government when Professor McDonald arrived in Brisbane on the 9th of June 1967 to look into this matter, to say nothing of the media getting into the act with headlines such as “Why the secrecy?” Professor McDonald had been well informed, and from some source he and his investigators tracked down one of the retired air hostesses who had been a crew member that night. She confirmed without doubt what had occurred. NOTE” The above image is CGI.
In July of 1965, In Valensole, France, a farmer named Maurice Masse claimed that he saw two children standing in his field. Masse was attempting to find a solution to why his lavender crop had bare spots of ground. As Masse approached the “children,” he noticed an unusual object close by. Now with a much closer view, the children were not children at all, but “strange looking beings.”
Masse described them as having large, bald heads, pasty faces, and huge, slanted eyes that stared out at him. He also related that they were wearing coveralls of some sort, and one of them was holding a tube-like device, standing by an odd-looking craft. Masse swore that as he approached the object, he was hit by some sort of ray, which disabled him for a time. When he awoke, he saw the object flying off into the sky.
Fearing ridicule, he was reluctant at first to report his incident, but in time, he came forward with the facts. During an interview, Maurice was shown a drawing representative of an object that had landed in Socorro, New Mexico, the previous year. The object had been seen by policeman Lonnie Zamora, who later made a sketch of it. Masse remarked, “Someone else has seen my UFO.”
According to the farmer, he was not able to grow anything in the area of the incident for years to come. Neither the Masse nor Zamora case proves the existence of extraterrestrial life, but especially in the Zamora case, there is no doubt that some type of unusual craft with occupants did land, and take off again.
Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who interviewed Zamora on more than one occasion, believes every word that Zamora said, however, offers no explanation for his sighting. In Hynek’s own words; “There is much more evidence to indicate that we are dealing with a most real phenomenon of undetermined origin.” If what Zamora saw was not of extraterrestrial origin, then where did it come from? Why did it land? Who were the strange occupants? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden looking through my high powered zoom binoculars when I spotted a strange structured craft that was off to the west and was quite far away in the distance but, still discernible. It was moving diagonally through a cloud and I could see that the craft was metallic in nature as the sun light was reflecting off of it’s surface. It definitely wasn’t anything conventional and that’s why it had caught my attention. I put my binoculars down on the garden table and picked up my Nikon P900 camera. I then zoomed in on the craft and immediately took a photograph just before it flew up through the clouds and disappeared into the atmosphere. I was ecstatic I had once again captured a very compelling photograph of an alien craft high above the town. This is another genuine U.A.P. that I have managed to capture. It really is rather unfortunate that people don’t believe me when I have taken the time to submit my photographs to them. All the people who don’t believe me should come here to Newton Abbot when lockdown has ended to sky watch for a few hours just like I do every day. Then they would also see these strange aerial craft. The problem is that debunkers won’t put the time or effort into researching this topic, instead they sit at their computers spending hours on social media slandering and discrediting real UFO researchers like me who are genuine and are trying there best to get a real understanding of what is going on with this phenomena. These craft are real and are very prevalent around this area due to the town’s close proximity to the moors and the sea. I have been researching this topic for a very long time now and I know for a fact that these alien craft are coming out of the sea and flying up to the moors where they are mutilating sheep and pony’s for soft genetic material. The true purpose of why they are collecting this genetic material still remains a mystery, but I surmise that these beings are growing body’s so they can move more of their kind from there dimension over to our physical plane of existence. The photograph was taken at 11:39 AM on the 29th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
KENS NOTE: John Mooner is my Chief Investigator for World UFO Photos. He surely lives in a UFO hot spot and has submitted hundreds of alien craft photos over the years.
I heard and felt a soft pulsating sound above me. I looked up and viewed straight above me, a triangle shaped craft, color was red/orange matte with no shading, same shade from edge to edge). Slight rounded edges and corners were slightly rounded. It was below higher clouds and was maybe 500 feet in air. No markings, nor openings or view ports opened, all closed. Craft moved steady, slowly, did not turn off course and appeared to be larger then length of a semi and trailer, aprox 100 feet. I did not report craft, because I felt they needed time to repair craft. I have seen same type of craft in Michigan in 1969 and have seen military craft during training films at attack squadron 901 in Millington Tennessee Naval Air Station while in USMC. While doing my training in 1972 we were shown films of classes of UFO’s and has been known to engage and destroy military aircraft. Film showed remains of USMC aircraft under magnification which showed metal looked like a sponge (like rad/nuke strike damage). A pulse laser type weapon was used. I have learned a lot regarding this type of craft, and wonder why government lies so much about it. I could not only hear the magnetic pulses from the craft as it passed overhead, but could feel slight vibration too. This is not normal for the power unit craft uses they haven’t vibrated, sound wise since mid 60’s. I feel the craft had a magnetic imbalance, which they were correcting at time I saw them above me. Craft should move silent, no vibration or pulse. If magnetic is balanced, a slight hum is all that is heard. When I was 14 I was taken by one of these craft, (1966) Michigan, and craft had same pulsating sound that was what I first noticed when heard/felt vibration/sounds. It was exact as one from my past but todays craft, should not be making these sounds/vibrations unless being readjusted. I am wondering if others have knowledge of this subject matter? I know they keep checking on me every few years, and desire no harm, and can’t help humans until world leaders get their acts together. I will be open to those that have knowledge of what I am speaking of. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A curious landing report, in New York state on Aug. 19, 1965, has been thoroughly checked by NICAP, state police, and a five-man AF team. This sighting, which occurred on the William Butcher dairy farm near Cherry Creek, N.Y., involved three members of the Butcher family and a fourth witness. Here is their report:
At 8:20 PM, Harold Butcher, 16, was operating a milking machine in a dairy barn housing 17 cows. A portable radio on the wall was turned to a newscast, when a sudden static-like interference drowned it out.
Then the tractor which ran the milking machine abruptly stopped. A moment later, a Holstein bull secured outside began to bellow and pull at a steel bar to which it was chained.
Young Butcher ran to a window and saw a large elliptical object near the ground, a fourth of a mile away. A reddish vapor could be seen underneath, and he heard a steady beep-beep sound. The UFO was on the ground only a few seconds, then it shot straight up, disappearing in low clouds.
When the other witnesses came out, after Harold Butcher phoned the house, they noticed a strange odor, also a greenish glow in the clouds where the UFO had vanished. Meantime, it was found that the bull had bent the steel bar in his efforts to get loose.
Half an hour later, when the strange craft reappeared, circling the area, Mrs. Butcher called the State police. Two troopers investigated, notified the AF. Next day, Capt. James Dorsey, Operations Officer, 4621st AF Group, arrived with four AF technicians.
When they examined the ground, an odd, purplish liquid substance was discovered at several places. Small unexplained marks, two inches wide and two inches apart, also were found, along with patches of singed grass and foliage.
After the AF team left, NICAP member Jeffrey Gow obtained samples of the purplish substance and singed foliage, and samples were studied by the Kawecki Chemical Co., whose president is a NICAP adviser.
Spectrographic analysis showed the main elements of the liquid to be aluminum, iron and silicon. Some phosphorous was found in the weed samples, which the analyst said might cause a phosphate smell, explaining the odor.
On the night following the Cherry Creek incident, State Trooper Richard Ward, a few miles from this area, watched an object with eight circular lights in line flying twice as fast as a jet. It emitted a faint, unfamiliar, purring sound.
Dr. Fred C. Fair and John Maxwell, of NICAP New York Subcommittee No. 2, carefully checked the Cherry Creek site and questioned the witnesses.
On the basis of present evidence, they believe the report is genuine. Dr. Fair has confirmed that two state troopers who investigated also seem to be convinced.
A 3-year-old Holstein bull was secured to a steel bar outside of a dairy barn containing 17 cows. About 8:20 PM, Harold Butcher, 16, was operating the milking machine when the radio had static-like interference and the tractor motor running the milking machine cut off.
The bull made a noise “like I have never heard come from an animal before.”
Harold looked out the window at the bull, which was trying to get lose, and he saw an elliptical object nearing the ground with a “beep-beep” sound about a quarter of a mile away (1320 feet). After hovering briefly on or near the ground, the object shot up into low clouds.
As the object rose, the noise pitch increased to a level approximating a sonic boom. The cows produced only one can of milk that evening rather than the normal 2 ½ cans. Later examination of the bar to which the bull was secured found it bent.
The object was metallic-looking, football shaped, and estimated to be 50 feet long and 20 feet thick. A reddish vapor was emitted from the bottom area and when the object rose, the red vapor shot toward the ground and bounced back toward the object.
The clouds had a greenish glow where the object had vanished.
At 9 PM, the object was seen again by several people at the farm. It now had a glowing yellow vapor trail.
The clouds still appeared to have a green glow. State police were called and investigated and the Air Force investigated. This incident involved EM effects. A tractor motor shut down, the barn radio and house radio had static-like interference, but a telephone between the barn and house apparently worked.
Physical traces included an odor, ground marks, a purple liquid, and grass bent over and singed.
Physiological effects included Harold and his younger sister having upset stomachs, and the cows giving less than normal amounts of milk. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At Approximately 8:45 pm on Monday February 8,2021 I was sitting on my back porch with my daughter and I heard a helicopter coming from the west. There have been a lot of them lately so I went to the screen door to look out. I couldn’t see the helicopter at first so I stepped out on to my pool deck to get a better view. I noticed something coming through the trees from the west and saw the helicopter lights further back from this object. As the object came closer over the trees I could see plainly it was a disc shaped flying craft very large and silver and iridescent in color. It had a very subtle glow about it The Helicopter was behind and to the right of the object and seemed to not be chasing it but instead seemed to be escorting it as they moved across the sky. There was no noise or wind from the craft but I could hear the helicopter quite plainly. As they approached and I could see the disc shaped craft had no markings of any type and appeared to be seamless except for the bottom of the craft which seemed to have a square hatch or bay with a line down the center of the hatch. It also had a second deck that appeared to have windows that were illuminated but I could not see any movement within. As they both continued to the east I was in awe and thrilled that I was lucky enough to see this object so close and then I realized I didn’t have my cell phone to take a picture as it was in the house and would have taken too long to retrieve it. So as they continued to the east and I lost sight of them through the trees. I can’t tell what type of helicopter it was because my focus was on the strange craft. Well about 20 minutes later I hear the Helicopter coming back from the east passing to the southside of the house going to the west I again stepped out on the back porch and saw 2 lights, 1 red and 1 multiple colors moving very quickly to the west with the helicopter chasing them. Again no sounds from the lights but the helicopter was screaming behind them, definitely chasing them. I lost sight as they went behind the trees. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Robert Campbell, Patrolman Peter McCollum, Sherman TX; Aug 2, 1965. 3 AM: “… a glowing UFO hovered near Sherman, TX. Broadcasting stations, police, and other agencies had been flooded with reports for hours. Television cameraman Robert Campbell was out with Patrolman Peter McCollum, interviewing witnesses and watching the objects for themselves.
Campbell took a still picture of the hovering UFO. A two minute time exposure while he and the police officer watched the thing. The picture was overexposed, possibly due to the brilliance of the UFO…”
“… I investigated ‘on-location’ at Sherman, TX… was photographed by television newsman Bob Campbell… He had been monitoring police calls on his radio and he left his home at 3:00 AM, armed with a 4×5 Speed Graphic and Tri-X film, to photograph the strange light he had heard reported on the police radio.
“Shortly after midnight a news photographer for a local television station, heard on his short wave radio, two police highway patrols discuss reports of an UFO tracked on radar and streaking towards the Texas border.
“The photographer took his 4×5 Speed Graphic camera and drove into town, where he met the Chief of Police. Together the two men searched for the object, and soon sighted it hanging stationary thirteen miles east of Sherman, on Highway 82.
“Its outline was clearly defined in the north-eastern sky, and the photographer set up his camera. He took four exposures, two minutes each at three-minute intervals. The negatives have been carefully examined by Air Force scientific advisers and by astronomical experts. No acceptable explanation has been found for the object recorded on the negatives. It must be considered a UFO.”
“The remarkable aspect of this particular incident is that, having been alerted by the same radio broadcast, several other individuals were also watching the object. Campbell and McCollum were one mile east of Bells, OK.
Highway patrolman Bill Quires was watching from Durant, 30 mi north of Bells, and Department of Public Safety Dispatcher Jim Faglia was watching from a point seven miles south of Sherman, thus precluding the possibility that the object could have been a planet or a star.”
The object’s shape was a cylinder with “Mercury capsule” shape at one end, possibly rounded at other end. Several distinct bands around diameter of cylinder, with disc shaped “bosses” on surface. Bands of luminosity.
An extrusion of luminosity from one band, and an ejection of an unknown material accompanied the object.
On January 25th, 2021, I hit the road from Newburgh , NY to Fishkill, NY to pick up my wife. She gets out of work at 11:45 PM. I picked her up and we got back on the road. I was driving the vehicle and she was sitting next to me. We have a Kia SUV. I was driving on the right lane about 50 miles per hour speed. This highway is known as Interstate 84 west. Two lanes going east and two lanes going west. Around 11:55 pm, an object suddenly passed from the right front corner of our vehicle to the left front corner with a tremendous speed. The object looked like tube-shaped, and fluorescent in color. It passed with a tremendous speed and left behind a flutter. It looked like this flutter was the replaced atmosphere that was visible through our headlights. We passed through this flutter. Next, my wife said what was that? She said was that a deer? I said I have never seen a tube-shaped, fluorescent white deer that travels with the speed of light. She said it could be a bird. I repeated myself and said it was not an animal, plant, or human. My wife and I communicated perfectly up until that point. Next, I looked at my left mirror and what I saw shocked me. There was an object about the size of a dumpster truck, gold in color, disc shaped with a huge majestic platform in the middle was flying at the left rear corner of our vehicle. The object positioned itself over the left lane and was travelling (flying) in the same direction with us. I said ” I see it. There is an object behind us. Oh my God! What is this? This cannot be a bird. It is too big and not flapping wings. ” Later my wife said she never heard me saying this. I clearly remember making this statement out loud. The object got closer and it was almost parallel to the rear seats. So , I said ” It is getting so close !” I said this last statement out loud in panic and shock. My wife later said that I have never said that. Apparently , my wife and I were disconnected for some reason. In those seconds, I have the following thoughts in my mind : ” I have been put into this situation against my will. Now, I have to deal with it, and manage the situation professionally. I should be a good boy and do not do anything wrong. ” Next, my thoughts were to pull over to the side of the road and stop. However, my instincts then said not to because the object might stop in front of us and we might end up evacuating our vehicle, and what if they did the same ? At this moment, I felt everything like very slow motion.
I really could not tell if our tires were on the road and if I was really driving our vehicle. I wonder if time was really ticking at that point. All I saw from the left mirror was the surface of the object. Therefore, the object totally blocked my left mirror view. The surface of the object was gold in color and it looked porous. After these agonizing moments, the object began to distance itself from our vehicle. The object had done this very very aesthetically. While the distance between us and the object was increasing gradually, the object was increasing its altitude gradually as well. Finally, there was a rightward curve on the road and I checked where the object was from my left mirror. In this final moment, it was over the medium at the left of the left lane. It looked like it stopped there in midair. This was the last time I saw the object. I said ” the object disappeared” out loud. My wife later said that she did not hear it either. We travelled a little bit and I said to my wife ” call police”. She was able to communicate with me at this point . She later said that after the conversation about deer, it was the only statement I made. Of course, this was not true. Because I made numerous statements after I spotted the object behind us till it disappeared. Anyway, my wife said why are we calling the police. She said let it go. I said we cannot let it go. Because there was so many other vehicles on the road and someone might get hurt or worse. I said we do our share to inform police. Since my wife forgot her phone at home that day (which is very unusual), she tried to use my phone. Next, she said she cannot call because there are no icons on my cell phone, not even a single one. I asked her if she could text message someone but she said no way. I said forget it. There were only a couple of miles until we got home. Finally, we got home and I parked our vehicle. After I stopped the engine, I asked my wife if she may try to call the police again.
This time all the icons were there, She called Orange County police department. They transferred her to Dutchess , and Dutchess transferred her to NY State police. Finally we informed NY state police about what happened that night. After that I did not want to get out of our vehicle of my fear that what if something was beneath the vehicle.. After I said this comment to my wife, she said don’t worry. There cannot be anything under the vehicle. Next, she opened the door and stepped out. It was my turn to open the door slowly and step out gently. Next day, we were contacted by someone in Washington DC. This man introduced himself, his phone number, and address. He wanted us to write this incident separately including any drawings and mail it to them. The object was able to go in one direction and then the opposite. It was easily changing its altitude and speed. The object managed to come to a full stop in midair over the medium at the left of the left lane. I did not have a chance to see the bottom of it. I did not see any lights either. Apparently, my wife and I were disconnected within the time frame between the conversation about the deer (we both remember) and the conversation about calling the law enforcement (again we both remember). However, anything said between these two time frames were somehow not heard. The disconnection between me and my wife coincides with the time frame the object positioned itself to our left till the object disappeared. One last observation: I did drive there today. I recorded where we got chased. I noticed that the object chased us in some very interesting part of the highway. This part of the highway towards east is covered by long and high hills from both sides. It is like a corridor with walls at both sides. Therefore, east and west bound vehicles cannot see each other in this part of the highway. We did not see any vehicles ahead of us in this strip that night. Likewise, I did not see any vehicles behind us in the strip either. Apparently, we were the only vehicle passing through this part of the highway. An excellent place to hunt. The object disappeared almost where the strip ends. Afterwards, we travelled a couple of minutes where east and west bound vehicles were able to see each other. At this point a semi-truck passed us. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Tulsa, Oklahoma; August 3, 1965. The Tulsa Oklahoma photographic case is an extremely interesting one in that we have one excellent photograph of a multi-colored object which fails to resemble any known flying object, past or present.
The events leading to the taking of the picture were as follows:
At about 1:30 AM, Mr. A. L. Smith, accompanied by his 14 year old son Alan, and three other witnesses , were captivated with watching an unusual, multi-colored UFO.
Mr. Smith was a turbine engine specialist, working with American Airlines.
The unknown object seemed to be slowly moving toward the five witnesses. Still some several hundred yards away, it paused briefly and hovered.
At that precise moment, Alan snapped a photograph with his inexpensive camera, using ASA 64 film. Alan decided not to try for a second shot.
He took his camera inside the house, and ran back outside just in time to see the object rapidly flying away into the night sky.
His picture was extensively analyzed, pronounced authentic, and later published by Life magazine and many newspapers.
The picture was taken by my friend’s daughter outside her home on Sunday, November 15th 2020. She did not take the photo because of the UFO, she did not know it was there until looking at the photo afterwards. The reason she took the picture of the sky was that the sky was a very strange colour. (unfortunately, the camera doesn’t show this) I remember the time because my son and I went to the shop at a similar time and he said to me that the sky looked very apocalyptical, and it did.
The sky was a very yellow/bronze type of colour, it did seem and feel a bit odd because it was unusual. It seems to be travelling SSW and if you look carefully, there is some type of pattern on the edges that looks like a zebra camo’ pattern. You can also sea a load of seagulls in the sky to the left of the Triangle UFO.
KENS NOTE: Sometimes the camera captures what our eyes cannot see. Many camera capture photos are usually explainable and most seem to be camera lens flair but every once in a while we get the real thing.
In the wee hours of the night on a cold, September 3, 1965, eighteen-year-old Muscarello made his trek.
It was about 2:00 AM that this lonely hitchhiker first noticed an unusual light in the dark skies. The light became an object, which suddenly came from the sky towards the young man.
The object was described as approximately 90 feet in diameter, with bright, beaming lights that appeared around its rim.
Silently, the object began to wobble and float toward the frightened man. His fear of actually being hit caused him to fall to the ground by the side of the road. At the last moment, the object floated away from him.
Muscarello took this opportunity to jump up and run to a nearby house, pounding on the front door. The house was the home of Carl Dining. No one answered his frantic pleas for help.
Meanwhile, at the Exeter Police Station, Officer Eugene Bertrand received a call from a frightened woman who stated that a large, silent object with flashing lights had followed her car for twelve miles from the city of Epping to a spot on the road where she pulled off in fear.
After she stopped her automobile, the strange object had disappeared into the night. Bertrand did not make an official report on the woman’s call, believing it to be untrue or a trick.
Meanwhile, Muscarello, not finding anyone at the farmhouse, ran back into the road, and flagged down a passing car.
A middle-aged couple stopped to render aid. They drove the weary traveler to the Exeter Police Station. Muscarello, full of excitement, began to recount the events of the last hour on Route 150.
B J’s Note: Muscarello would later relate that the male driver of the car was never identified in Fuller’s book because the woman with him at 2:00 AM wasn’t hia wife.
The desk Officer, Reginald “Scratch” Toland, is now convinced that something has happened, and radios to Officer Bertrand, who is now on patrol. At about 3:00 AM, Bertrand arrives at the station, and after hearing Muscarello’s story, thinks he may have discounted the earlier call from the woman too quickly.
Convinced that Muscarello’s story is real, Officer Bertrand takes Muscarello back to the spot on Route 150 where the incident began. At this point, Bertrand has no idea what lies ahead of him this night.
Arriving at the scene, the two men scan the area, and at first see nothing out of the ordinary. By the road, there is a large open field, the house that Muscarello had visited, and a horse corral. They begin to walk out into the open field in the direction of the horse corral.
The horses seemed to be a little edgy, and suddenly dogs began to bark. From behind two pine trees, an object begins to rise, lighting the whole area with a reddish hue.
Muscarello screams, “I see it! I see it!”
The next moment, Bertrand says, “My God, I see the damn thing myself!”
It is important to note that Bertrand had been in the Air Force for four years, and knew military aircraft.
He would later insist “this wasn’t like anything I had seen before.”
Like a leaf floating, the object slowly moved toward the two men. They scurried back to the police car. The object is now hovering about one hundred feet above the ground, some fifty yards from the police car.
(source 2) According to Bertrand:
“Norman and I came out here and I parked right about where we are parked right now. We sat looking for several minutes but didn’t see anything unusual. I radioed the station and told them that there was nothing out here.
They asked me to take a walk into the field for a quick look before coming back in. I felt kind of foolish walking out here on private property after midnight, looking for a flying saucer!”
Bertrand then suggested that we go out to the field so that he could show me where he and Norman had been. We got out of the car and strolled into the field toward a corral.
“We walked out about this far,” he said “I waved my flashlight back and forth, and then Norman shouted, ‘Look out, here it comes!’ I swung around and could hardly believe what I was seeing. There was this huge, dark object as big as that barn over there with red flashing lights on it. It barely cleared that tree right there, and it was moving back and forth.”
“What did you guys do when you saw that thing?” I asked.
“Well, it seemed to tilt and come right at us. Norman told me later that I was yelling, ‘I’ll shoot it! I’ll shoot it!’ I did automatically drop on one knee and drew my service revolver, but I didn’t shoot. I do remember suddenly thinking that it would be unwise to fire at it, so I yelled to Norman to run for the cruiser, but he just froze in his tracks. I practically had to drag him back!”
“How close was the object to you then?” I asked.
“It seemed to be about one hundred feet up and about one hundred feet away. All I could see at that point was bright red with sort of a halo effect. I thought we’d be burned alive, but it gave off no heat and I didn’t hear any noise. I called Dave Hunt on the radio. He was already on his way out here, and arrived in just a few minutes. Whatever it was, it must have really scared the horses in that barn.”
“Why do you say that? Did you hear them from here?” I asked.
“Yeh, you could hear them neighing and kicking in their stalls. Even the dogs around here started howling. When Dave arrived, the three of us just stood there and watched it. It floated, wobbled, and did things that no plane could do. Then it just darted away over those trees toward Hampton.”
“What did you do then?” I asked.
“Well, we all returned to the station to write up our report. We’d only been back a short while when a call came in from the Hampton telephone operator. She told us that she’d just talked to a man who was calling from a phone booth and was very upset. He said that he was being chased by a flying saucer and that it was still out there!
Before she could connect him with us, the connection was broken. We went out looking for him and even went to the hospital to see if he’d been brought in there, but we never found out who he was.”
The object’s light is so intense, that it is difficult to make out its shape. The lights emanating from the craft dim and then brighten, from left to right, and then right to left. The object now begins to slowly move away from the men, in the direction of the city of Hampton.
At this very moment, another Policeman, David Hunt, arrives at the scene to witness the craft in the sky, as it fades out of sight. In a matter of minutes, the craft is sighted in Hampton, and a report made to Pease Air Force Base.
Mrs. Virginia Hale, a reporter for the Haverhill Gazette, also sees the unknown craft from her kitchen window as it hovers over a neighbor’s house for about 4 minutes.
There were many other reported sightings of a similarly described craft over the next several weeks, but it is uncertain if they were all legitimate or not. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
About 11:00 p.m. on the night of Friday, September 3, Deputy Sheriff Bob Goode, 50, was driving his patrol car south out of Damon in Texas toward West Columbia on Highway 36. Since he had suffered a bite on his left index finger earlier that day from a baby alligator, he had asked Chief McCoy along in the event the pain flared up and interfered with his driving.
It was a sparkling clear moonlit Texas night, and Goode rested his arm in the open window of the door as they drove through the prairie.
Suddenly McCoy spotted a bright purple light on the horizon to the Southwest which appeared to be about five to six miles distant. At first they thought it might be something in the nearby oil fields, perhaps an oil-drilling rig. But then a blue light, smaller in diameter than the purple light, emerged from it and moved to the right before stopping.
Both lights remained in this orientation for a while before beginning to drift upward. This upward floating motion continued until the objects reached an elevation of 5-10 degrees above the horizon.
Goode then studied the lights through a pair of binoculars, but could not make out any additional features. As their curiosity mounted, the officers began to look for back roads that might take them closer to the lights. They stopped again, and this time the lights suddenly swooped toward them, covering the intervening distance in 1-2 seconds, abruptly stopping practically overhead.
Their patrol car and the surrounding terrain were brightly illuminated in purple light. They could now see that the purple and blue lights were attached to opposite ends of an enormous object, hovering about 150 feet from them at about a 100-foot altitude.
In his later statement to the Air Force, McCoy described what he saw:
“The bulk of the object was plainly visible at this time and appeared to be triangular shaped with a bright purple light on the left end and the smaller, less bright, blue light on the right end. The bulk of the object appeared to be dark gray in color with no other distinguishing features. It appeared to be about 200 feet wide and 40-50 feet thick in the middle, tapering off toward both ends. There was no noise or any trail.
The bright purple light illuminated the ground directly underneath it and the area in front of it, including the highway and the interior of our patrol car. The tall grass under the object did not appear to be disturbed. There was a bright moon out and it cast a shadow of the object on the ground immediately below it in the grass.”
To both men, the object seemed to be “as big as a football field.” Goode could feel strong heat emanating from the object onto his left arm, through his shirt-sleeve.
The Damon, Texas sighting took a second seat to the more celebrated Exeter, New Hampshire case which occurred on the same date… I could find no other UFO reports on this date of any note.
Could the unknown objects which were seen earlier on the same day in New Hampshire have flown southwesterly down the Eastern coast of the United States, and moved over the Texas town of Damon?
After a few seconds, with the strange object hovering almost directly overhead, they fled the scene and headed toward Damon “as fast as we could go,” making speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. McCoy kept watching the object out the rear window of the car. For 10 to 15 seconds, the UFO continued to hover above the pasture.
Then it abruptly shot back in the direction from which it had come. “After arriving at approximately its original position,” McCoy reported, “it went straight up in the air and disappeared at 25-30 degrees above the horizon.”
Back at Damon, the shaken officers calmed themselves, and then decided to go back and investigate again. This time they drove down the Damon-West Columbia road, but saw nothing.
Finally they returned to the area where they had first seen the lights, and once again spied the purple light on the horizon, and again saw the smaller blue light emerge with a strange two-step motion and float upward. Fearing another close encounter, they again fled the area.
Goode and McCoy continued on their shift until three or four in the morning, then stopped for breakfast at a cafe. Goode noted that his alligator bite was no longer sore, and when he unwrapped the bandage he discovered that the swelling had gone down and that the wound was nearly healed.
Next day, the wound showed virtually no scarring.
The deputies reported the sighting to Ellington Air Force Base, and Major Laurence Leach, Jr., arrived on September 8, 1965, to interview McCoy and Goode and take a statement. Leach’s report to Project Blue Book headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base reflected his puzzlement.
“There is no doubt in my mind,” he said, “that they definitely saw some unusual object or phenomenon… Both officers appeared to be intelligent, mature, level-headed persons capable of sound judgment and reasoning.” US Air Force put this case in the “unknown” category. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In December 1965 onboard Gemini 7, astronauts James (Jim) Lovell and Frank Borman witnessed a UFO in space during their second orbit of the 14 day flight. Frank Borman reported seeing an unidentified spacecraft a distance away from their capsule .Jim Lovell’s communication with control reveals that they are seeing multiple UFO sightings and not the final stage booster of the Titan rocket used to launch them into space. Frank Borman stated that he could see the booster, and was also seeing something other that the final stage of the Titan rocket. Part of flight Gemini 7’s radio communications :Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that a actual sighting? Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL…ACTUAL SIGHTINGS. Capcom: …Estimated distance or size? Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT.
January 11, 1966 started like any other mid-winter day in the small suburban town of Wanaque, New Jersey.
The air was clear and cold, kids were enjoying the holiday vacation from school, and residents of the Passaic County borough went about their usual daily routines.
Little did they know that before the day was over something would happen, something fantastic and unexplainable, that would change the lives of many of the townsfolk forever.
It all started in the early evening of that Tuesday night. It was about 6:30 PM, and the winter sun was already long gone over the western horizon, past the great Wanaque reservoir, and behind the darkened Ramapo mountain range.
Wanaque Patrolman Joseph Cisco was in his cruiser when a call from the Pompton Lakes dispatcher came over his police radio. It was a report of a “glowing light, possibly a fire.”
Then as if right out of a sci-fi movie Cisco heard the words:
“People in Oakland, Ringwood, Paterson, Totowa, and Butler claim there’s a flying saucer over the Wanaque.”
“I pulled into the sandpit, an open area to get my bearings,” Cisco recalls. “There was a light that looked bigger than any of the stars, about the size of a softball or volleyball. It was a pulsating, white, stationary light changing to red. It stayed in the air; there was no noise. I was trying to figure out what it was.”
Wanaque Mayor Harry T. Wolfe, Councilmen Warren Hagstrom and Arthur Barton, and the Mayor’s 14-year-old son Billy were on their way to oversee the burning of the borough’s Christmas trees, when they heard the reports that something “very white, very bright, and much bigger than a star” was hovering over the Wanaque Reservoir.
They decided to pull into a sandpit near the Raymond Dam at the headworks to meet Officer Cisco and get a better look at the ‘thing.’
The Mayor’s son Billy spotted the object at once, flying low and gliding “oddly” over the vast frozen lake “like a huge star.” “But it didn’t flicker,” Billy told reporters the next day. “It was just a continuous light that changed from white to red to green and back to white.”
“The phenomenon was terribly strange.” Mayor Wolfe would later recall. He described the shape of the unidentified object as oval, and estimated it to be between two and nine feet in diameter.
The next thing that officer Cisco remembers is his patrol car’s radio “going bananas,” as calls from all over a 20-mile radius flooded into the police headquarters. Cisco radioed Officer George Dykman, who was on patrol nearby. Just as Dykman received Cisco’s message, two teenagers came running up to his patrol car frantically pointing at the sky and shouting “Look, look!”
At that moment Wanaque Civil Defense Director Bentley Spencer drove up with CD member Richard Vrooman. “The Police radios are all jammed up!” Spencer said excitedly. Dykman and Spencer gaped at the sky along with Michael Sloat, 16, and Peter Melegrae, 15. “What the heck is it?” Dykman wondered out loud. “Never seen anything like it in my life.”
Back at the sandpit Joseph Cisco’s radio crackled as another unbelievable message came across the airwaves: “Something’s burning a hole in the ice! Something with a bright light on it, going up and down!” Then another transmission fought its way through the din: “Oh boy! Something just landed in front of the dam!”
Spencer and reservoir employee Fred Steines raced to the top of the 1,500-foot long Raymond Dam where they described seeing “a bolt of light shoot down, as if attracted to the water… like a beam emitted from a porthole.”
Patrolman Cisco, Mayor Wolfe and Town Councilmen Hagstrom and Barton climbed to the top of the dam to get a better look.
“There was something up there that was awful bright.” Hagstrom recalls. “We don’t know what it was. We thought it was a helicopter, but we didn’t hear a motor. It looked like a helicopter with big landing lights on. We got goose bumps all over when we saw where the hole was.”
According to John Shuttle, another Councilman who witnessed the UFO, there was no doubt about it: “It was there.” He said. “I saw it, a brilliant white object, two to three feet across, and its color – no, not color, shade – it kept changing.”
JANUARY 12, 1966
One day after the initial sightings of the UFO, Patrolman Jack Wardlaw reported seeing a “bright white disk” floating in the vicinity of his home in the Stonetown section of Wanaque, just west of the reservoir.
“It seemed like only a block away, above Lilly Mountain, maybe 1,000 feet up,” Wardlaw said. “Don’t ask me what it was. But I do know it wasn’t any helicopter, plane, or comet. It shot laterally right and left. It stopped. It moved up straight. And then it moved down and disappeared in the direction of Ringwood to the north.”
Wardlaw described the object as “definitely disc-shaped and at certain angles, egg-shaped.”
Sgt. David Sisco said that he was on patrol at about 6:30 that evening when the UFO noiselessly hovered into view.
“It glided, then streaked faster than a jet,” he told reporters, “and when it rose, it went straight up.”
Reservoir guard and former Wanaque policeman Charles Theodora and Sisco went to the top of the dam to take a look at the bright light.
“We looked across the water and saw a cylinder-shaped object,” Theodora remembers.
“It was moving back and forth like a rocking chair motion. We were astonished.”
A few minutes later the object shot straight up into the night sky, until it was indistinguishable from the other stars. Theodora said that he didn’t hear a sound while the light show was going on.
“I didn’t believe in UFOs, I thought they were a lot of bull. And then I saw it. It was a breathtaking sight; something I’ll never forget.” After the January 1966 sightings, radar was installed atop the reservoir dam. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
First time I saw this object in the sky pulsating, was on May 2020. My youngest daughter was fascinated by this thing flying in the sky. I took a look and there I saw it, but I didn’t have a camera, it was gone in seconds. On October 27, 2020 at 7:46pm we were sky watching and we thought it was a satellite or a shooting star, but I didn’t know of any stars in that specific area and it behaved differently. I checked the sky app and confirmed it wasn’t. I believe this thing had so much energy of light it orbited around with it, and hovering around the sky and flashing. This continues for a few minutes. Then it made different shape, it formed itself like Saturn, like spreading that energy around. Then suddenly it’s like it was aware of us, quick flashes of camouflage it blurred the area around it and would reappear. I think it didn’t have enough energy and minutes later just flew away so fast.
I was the Captain of ((airline and flight # deleted)) on November 13, operating from Charlotte, NC to Harrisburg, PA. That flight departed the gate in CLT at 2017 local time. After takeoff, while climbing through an altitude of roughly 15,000 feet heading north, I saw an object out of the corner of my eye that then moved with very significant relative speed from the top of my field of view to at or below my perceived nighttime horizon, nearly vertically down with slight movement from left to right. It was moving at a speed consistent with a meteor, but white with no tail, and at roughly the horizon, it instantaneously stopped with no deceleration and changed direction, with no curvature of turn, to the north or northeast, roughly a few degrees right of our course. It disappeared away from our aircraft to the north in a fraction, maybe a quarter, of the time it took to move from the top of my field of view to the nearly the bottom. The light’s movement away appeared to me as a rapid dimming with slight movement to the right, which leads me to at the least perceive it as having rapidly moved away outside my range of sight to the north; that is how aircraft look as they disappear out of sight, albeit multiples slower. This entire event was a matter of a couple to a few seconds. The movement of the object from above to the horizon was roughly 1.5-2 seconds, the movement away possibly .5 seconds. This is an estimation based on perception.
With regard to our immediate interpretation of and reaction to the event, as well as my current opinion regarding it, I was immediately puzzled by what I saw. I said to my First Officer “Did you see that?”. His response was “Ya I saw that.” I said “that was not a meteor”, and he echoed that sentiment and said something to the effect of “It turned”. I then said “that wasn’t a plane either”, and my first officer agreed. We bounced ideas off each other for a few moments. During a quick shuffling of possible explanations in my head, an aircraft moving vertically toward earth had momentarily been an alarming one of them. But airplanes accelerate and decelerate, and when they turn, the turn is accomplished with curvature. They also have more lights than just bright white. This object moved across our entire field of view with great speed, instantaneously stopped with no deceleration, and shot off to the north, as if from a cannon. The angular change in direction was almost like a ! pinball bouncing off the bumper of a pinball machine, but with maybe the slightest pause as it made contact. Or a child’s bouncy ball bouncing off an angled surface dropped from above, rapidly changing direction to move laterally. It was not an airplane. We also discussed meteors, to include that we had both seen many meteors from aircraft throughout thousands of hours of flight time. The confident consensus was that the object had not been a meteor, for several reasons. First, and least compelling, was that they usually have a tail. This white, almost bluish white, object had no tail. More importantly, it would have been a meteor moving almost directly downward through our atmosphere with no flickering and no breakup. Beyond that, it would have been a clean, crisp, white meteor with no flickering, no tail, and no breakup, moving downward through our atmosphere to roughly our altitude before making a sudden and instantaneous, deceleration and acceleration-free, 90 degree turn to the north, disappearing faster than it crossed our field! of view It was not a meteor. After ruling out a few possibilities, it became clear that this object did not behave like anything either of us had ever seen while in flight. It showed no signs of being affected by an apparent enormous speed through our atmosphere, and it stopped and changed direction with seemingly no obedience to the Newtonian physics that we have such significant intuition for. Nothing I’ve seen, including fighter jets, change direction that sharply or move at that speed. We asked ATC, I believe Atlanta or Washington Center, if they had picked up an object rapidly descending in front of us. They mentioned an aircraft still above us slowly descending to another altitude above us. This was clearly not related to what we saw.
After several minutes discussing what we had seen, as well as the likelihood of us catching both flack and a drug test for a report of this nature, we both agreed that the right thing to do was to report it to air traffic control. We did that, and by that time, I believe Washington Center took my report. We also notified dispatch via ACARS message. We both possess copies of those messages. After providing that report, I thought to myself that the object’s path of motion had looked very much like a reverse checkmark, and I recall asking my first officer to draw the path he saw before communicating that specific notion to him. Whether I did ask or not, at that time he drew precisely that and handed it to me, the mirror image of a check mark, with the long side on the left, the short side on the right. We spoke about the object a few more times during that flight and trip, but we have not spoken about or corroborated our descriptions of the events we are both separately submitting, in order to not influence our individual recollection. On November 17th, an FAA UFO investigative team member contacted me through a member of company management and spoke with me before asking permission to pass my information to you for your organization’s investigative purposes. This report is submitted upon request from the subsequent contact. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
Hi Ken : I had gone outside to put some cardboard into the recycling box when I just happened to glance up at the sky and spot an object that I could not identify as being any type of known conventional aircraft. The object was slowly moving diagonally through the sky below the clouds and it was definitely something unusual and anomalous. I immediately dropped the cardboard and went running back inside to retrieve my Nikon P900 camera. Luckily I had left my camera nearby on the kitchen worktop so I quickly grabbed it and immediately went running back outside into the garden where I could still see the strange object in the sky. The object was now further away from my position so I zoomed in on it and took a photograph just before it flew off into the distance heading in the direction of Torquay. I eventually lost sight of the object but felt very fortunate to have captured it in a photograph. I see these strange unidentified objects all the time around here. I am so lucky to live in an area where these objects are so prevalent. Hopefully sometime soon in the not too distant future, someone in the government will pluck up the courage to come forward and tell the general public what exactly these strange aerial objects are, and why they are allowed to fly freely around British air space completely unchallenged. The Photograph was taken at 1:27 PM on the 26th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

ParaNet is deeply indebted to, and a little honored by, user Bill Cooper of Fullerton, California, for this, the first known report of a multiple military witness sighting that occurred onboard the submarine USS Tiru in 1966.
In 1966 during the month of the Rose Festival in the Pacific Northwest United States, the USS Tiru SS-416 left Pearl Harbor bound for Seattle Washington. The sub moored to a civilian pier near the downtown Seattle area and thousands of people toured the sub during its stay in Seattle.
After its duty as “showboat” it proceeded to a back bay area where it underwent torpedo trials. I believe the area was called Dabob bay [pronounced day-bob] but I am not sure of the spelling.
I include the above information because it should be easy to research. During the cruise from Pearl to Seattle five of the crew had a very unusual experience. During one late afternoon the sub was cruising on the surface at approx. 10 knots when the port lookout reported a strange contact at a range of 2 miles bearing 315 degrees relative.
The lookout refused to tell the OOD what it was that he had seen and instead insisted that the starboard lookout and the OOD both look at that area.
The three men looked through their binoculars toward the area reported and were astounded to see a metal craft larger than a football field tumble from the clouds into the ocean.
It actually tumbled end over end and when it hit the water and sank beneath the ocean huge geysers of water rose into the air. When the port lookout was sure that the others had seen it he then told the OOD that he had seen it tumble from the ocean up into the clouds.
The OOD and the starboard lookout were speechless. Within a few minutes, however, they all became excited when it again rose from the water and tumbled up into the cloud layer.
At about the same time a crew member below queried the bridge about a radar contact at the same range and bearing. Sonar also reported strange echos. The OOD called for the Captain to come to the bridge at that time.
He also called for the camera to be sent to the bridge. The Captain arrived on the bridge within 2 minutes and the Chief Quartermaster was right behind him with the camera.
At about the same time the object emerged from the clouds and fell down into the ocean. All five men witnessed this. The QMC took pictures as it rose up into the clouds and then back down into the ocean once again.
The five men watched for quite a while longer but nothing else happened. Soon the sub had moved out of visual range and the Captain told all witnesses that they were never to discuss what they had seen with anyone under any circumstances.
He stated that the incident was classified information. The Captain then went below and sent a radio msg. There was no doubt as to what we had seen.
It was a metal craft with machinery on and around the outside of it. It appeared to have windows or lenses placed around its perimeter. It made no noise that we could hear. It did not disturb the subs electrical systems nor did it affect the gyro compass. It looked very much like a round flying “ship” as in sea going ship.
It had the shape and form of a saucer with a bowl inverted in the saucer and it was huge. I will never forget it as long as I live.
When I first saw this craft I believe that my heart literally stopped beating and I was terrified. The name of the OOD was Ensign Ball. The starboard lookout was an American Indian seaman that the crew called Geronimo.
The port lookout was a new man who left the sub soon after the return to Pearl Harbor and his name was Cooper. I do not remember the Captain’s name nor the Chief Quartermaster’s name.
This is the first time I have ever mentioned it since the moment that the Captain told me that it was classified. As far as I know it has never been reported to the public before this instant.
It should be easy to verify the facts if you can get a copy of the log and/or contact the other witnesses.
The names should not be too hard to find in the ship’s records/logs. I was the port lookout. I must say that I feel a great uneasiness in posting this, much like the way I felt in Vietnam when my life was in great danger. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At 9:00 am on January 19, 1966, a calm sunny day, a 28 year old banana farmer named George Pedley was driving a tractor near Horseshoe Lagoon on the property of Albert Pennisi, near Tully, in tropical far north Queensland, Australia. When he was about 25 yards from the lagoon, he heard a loud hissing sound above the noise of the tractor.
Suddenly, an object rose out of the swamp. When I glanced at it, it was already 30 feet above the ground, and at about tree-top level. It was a large, grey, saucer-shaped object, convex on the top and bottom and measured some 25 feet across and 9 feet high.
While I watched, it rose another 30 feet, spinning very fast, then it made a shallow dive and took off with tremendous speed. Climbing at an angle of 45 degrees it disappeared within seconds in a south-westerly direction…
Another surprise came when Pedley rounded the bend of the road and came to the spot from which the object had risen. There in the lagoon was a large circular area that was clear of reeds and in which the water was rotating slowly. It had not been like that three hours earlier when he had passed the lagoon. After looking around, he got back on the tractor and left.
A few hours later, at about noon, Pedley returned to the lagoon for a second look. The scene had changed, because now the circular area was covered by a floating mass of green reeds that were distributed in a clockwise radial pattern. The circular mass of reeds was about 30 feet in diameter.
Pedley was by now excited enough about what he was seeing to go and tell Albert Pennisi, the owner of the sugar cane farm land on which the lagoon was located, and another friend. Pennesi recalled that his dog had acted strangely that morning, barking madly and heading off toward the lagoon at about 5:30 am.
Pennisi and the other man were amazed by the circular mass of reeds. Wading out to the mass, they found that they could swim under the mass of reeds and that the lagoon floor beneath it was smooth and showed no traces of roots.
Oddly, the outside edges of the mass of reeds angled down, similar to the shape of a saucer placed face down. Pennisi went and got his camera and took photographs of the mass of reeds, which was now beginning to turn brown on its top surface. George Pedley reported his experience to the Tully police that evening, and they in turn reported it to the RAAF after making a trip to the site the next day, January 20.
Within days, the media had picked up the event and the area was filled with investigators, many of whom were trying to prove theories as to the cause of the “nest” such as helicopters, big birds, crocodiles, reed-eating grubs, and whirlwinds of one sort or another. Pedley’s UFO sighting was all but overlooked in the flurry of explanations.
During the course of the investigations, as many as five other “nests”, all smaller than the original, were discovered. In some of these, the reeds were rotated in a counter-clockwise direction and a couple of them showed signs of burning in the center of the nest. Samples of the original nest were sent to Brisbane for analysis, but nothing unusual was detected. Other than being part of the “nest”, the only unusual thing about the reeds was that they turned brown in about 8 hours, whereas reeds uprooted by hand in the lagoon took three days to turn brown.
In another unusual twist, Albert Pennisi told a reporter from the Sydney, Australia newspaper The Sun that he had been dreaming about a UFO landing on his property for a week:
I’d get them almost every night. And they were beginning to worry me. I couldn’t understand them. It was always the same. This thing like a giant dish would come out of nowhere and land nearby.
And I would watch it in my dream and get real afraid before it went away. Then on Wednesday morning about 5 o’clock my dog suddenly seemed to go out of its mind. It was howling like a mad thing and raced off towards the lagoon.
What happened at Horseshoe Lagoon? There was never any evidence that there were any helicopters in the area nor any demonstrated reason for one to be over the lagoon. There was no evidence that crocodiles made the nest and analysis of the reeds from the nest showed no trace of “reed-eating grubs.” There was no known bird that would or could make such a nest in three hours.
The best explanation that the RAAF could offer was that the nest was created by a willy willy, a type of small whirlwind known to occur in the area.
Although a conclusive determination could not be made, the most probable explatation was that the sighting was of a “willy willy” or circular wind phenomenon which flattened the reeds and sucked up debris to a height of about 30 feet, thus forming what appeared to be a “flying saucer”, before moving off and dissipating.
Hissing noises are known to be associated with “willy willies” and the theory is also substantiated by the clockwise configuration of the depression.
However, such whirlwinds, except when they occur in the desert as dust devils, normally accompany thunderstorms, and although the Tully event occurred during the rainy season, January 19 was a sunny day with little or no wind. Pedley described what he saw as a blue-grey object shaped like two saucers face to face.
This description doesn’t sound like a whirling mass of swamp debris, and there was no fallen debris in the area where the dissipation would have occurred. Finally, how does the whirlwind explanation account for the fact that the water was clear when Pedley looked the first time, yet was covered by the mass of reeds when he looked again three hours later? NOTE ; The above image us CGI.
KENS NOTE: Of course the RAAF would try to debunk the encounter with an alien craft. That was their job, in the sixties, just like the american military. The goverment did not want the public to know the truth because it would cause panic and make the goverment’s look inadequate.
On a quiet day in March, 1966, seven eyewitnesses reported an unidentified flying object maneuvering over Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
Ordinarily, these reports might have been dismissed by officials as the work of cranks. But this time, the seven witnesses WERE officials — police officers and sheriff’s deputies from the two counties.
And their stories were backed up by more than 100 witnesses, including William Van Horn, a civil defense director, and dozens of students who watched the football-shaped object for four hours as it maneuvered near the University of Michigan campus, a nearby airport and a local swamp.
The March 14 sightings caused an uproar and the area went on a wild UFO chase.
Three days later on March 17 two Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies, Sgt. Neil Schneider and Deputy David Fitzpatrick saw three or four red, white and green circular objects oscillating and glowing near Milan about 4 a.m.
They called Willow Run Airport officials who could not confirm with radar.
Two more Washtenaw deputies, BuFord Bushroe and John Foster tried to follow the same type of objects in the northern part of the county on March 20. Livingston and Monroe county residents also reported seeing the objects.
The Detroit News carried the police chase story the next day along with a drawing of a quilted football shaped object with lights, dome and antennae. (It was not maize and blue with a big M on it.)
Dexter patrolman Robert Huniwell said he spotted an object in the sky at Quigley and Brand roads between 9:30 and 9:45 PM.
He said the flying object with red and green flashing lights, came close to the ground, hovered above a scout car and was joined by a second vehicle on its ascent.
Washtenaw County Sheriff Douglas Harvey ordered all available deputies to the scene. Six patrol cars, two men in each, and three detectives surrounded the area. They later chased a flying object along Island Lake Road without catching it.
Frank Mannor and his family saw the lights from their McGuiness Road farm. “I got within 500 yards of that thing and it looked pyramid-shaped. It had a light here and a light there and what looked like a porthole.
“It wasn’t like the pictures of a flying saucer and it had a coral-like surface. I’ve trapped every hole in this county and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Mannor said the vehicle, by its own lights, appeared to be the length of a car and had a hazy mist under it as it hung above the ground. Mannor’s son, a member of the Dexter High School track team, and Mannor’s wife also witnessed the object.
It rose up to the tree tops and waited awhile and fell back to the ground.
It became different colors, white on the ground, blue, then red in the trees, and then came down and changed colors again. It sounded like a ricochet of a bullet, and like a siren, a real high frequency, they said.
Police Chief Robert R. Taylor and Patrolman N.G. Lee came to the farm in response to Mrs. Mannor’s call and heard the noise.
“I thought it was an ambulance,” Lee said. The chief’s son, Robert, 16, also saw the red vehicle in the sky at about 10:30 p.m. “It was going on in the east pretty slow, and then it sped up and went west,” he said. “It was flashing red and white.”
Washtenaw County Deputy Sheriff BuFord Bushroe also observed it. “It looked like an arc. It was round. We turned around and started following it through Dexter for five miles. It was headed west and we stopped.
We lost it in the trees. Either the lights went off or it took off with a tremendous burst of speed. It was about 1,500 feet above the ground. It moved along at about 100 mph. We were doing 70 before losing it near Wylie Road.”
Carloads of college students from nearby University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University converged on the area after hearing radio reports of the sightings.
Mannor was asked if it could have been a college prank. He vigorously denied the possibility. “They couldn’t rig rigging to it. There was not anything there, There was no way in the world to get out. There were two scout cars on the hill and more at the house.”
“I know every pothole in this county,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. There’s nothing wrong with my eyes and my son has 20/20 vision. We both can’t be wrong.”
“My wife says we’ll move out of here,” he said. “She doesn’t like that. I never lock the doors. Nobody ever bothers us.”
An Adrian College professor offered the theory that northern lights may be the objects the deputies tried to chase.
On March 22 dozens of residents of Dexter and Hillsdale reported more flying objects emitting strange sounds and lights.
On March 23 a teen from Monroe said he took photos, which looked like a big black blob.
The Air Force sent in Blue Book astronomer and UFO expert Dr. J. Allen Hynek who, after a whirlwind probe that lasted two hours and 45 minutes, dismissed the sightings as “swamp gas.”
Hynek quoted a description of marsh gases by Dutch astronomer Minnaert: “The lights resemble tiny flames, sometimes seen right on the ground, sometimes merely floating above it.
“The flames go out in one place and suddenly appear in another, giving the illusion of motion. The colors are sometimes yellow, sometimes red and bluegreen.”
“Marsh gas,” Hynek said, “usually has no smell, but sounds like the small popping explosions similar to a gas burner igniting. The gas forms from decomposition of vegetation. It seems likely that as the present spring thaws came, the gases methane, hydrogen sulfide and phosphine, resulting from decomposition of organic materials, were released.”
He also said youths playing “pranks with flares” added to the excitement. He dismissed a photo taken March 17 as a time exposure of the moon and Venus.
Van Horn, a Hillsdale native who grew up on the edge of a swamp, was outraged by Hynek’s findings, asserting that he knew more about swamp gas than Hynek did. He said Hynek ignored his reports that the lights moved and that there was a convex surface between the lights.
A fake photo was taken by Air Force investigator Maj. Raymond Nyls in March 1967 in an attempt to duplicate a photo taken by brothers Grant and Dan Jaroslaw of Harrison Twp. The UFO is actually a block of wood hanging by a string from a children’s swing set.
Van Horn, a pilot with a commercial rating, objected to the treatment of what came to be known as “the Michigan affair” by the Air Force, charging that “a lot of good people are being ridiculed.”
Hynek replied that he still believed that marsh gas was the logical explanation for these sightings.
Sightings of UFOs in the area continued, but these apparent copycat incidents seemed obviously fake. A Grand Haven man who reported a UFO landing near his home was not believed. Eastern Michigan University Police Chief John E. Hayes examines a Yipsilanti UFO that turned out to be a dry cleaning bag with a plastic cross on the open bottom holding several small candles.
On March 29 more sightings were reported over Michigan. Some from Macomb and Oakland counties, others from Bad Axe, Flint and Ann Arbor. Viewers included Richard Sober of Ann Arbor, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy, and Police Chief Ford Wallace of Linden.
In Washington the government was urged to release all information on the sightings.
In April Frankfort and Marquette joined in with sightings. The Frankfort sighting was identified as a marine flare.
The next year brothers Grant and Dan Jaroslaw of Harrison Twp, took photos of objects they claimed were flying over Lake St. Clair. A lie detector test failed to back up their story.
Hynek returned to Hillsdale but stuck to his original swamp gas declaration.
There were a few more sightings in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Ypsilanti and Grand Haven. In February four Ann Arbor residents reported objects flying in formation. And in Grand Haven police confirmed the sightings.
Not much came of all the commotion. However the popularity of reporting unusual stuff in the sky to officials kept Selfridge Air Force base busy. By 1968, they were receiving two or three reports of UFO sightings per week. note: The top image is real but from another case file.
KENS NOTE: The main purpose of the Air Forces Project Blue Book was to debunk sightings. Even Allen Hynek admitted to this and he eventually started to believe. With the overwhelming evidence he had collected over the years, he became a true UFO investigator and said these things were real.
After the Victoria City fireworks display, my grandparents made the (about) 20 minute trip along Highway 185 to their home in nearby Bloomington, TX. As they were entering Bloomington, they both saw a small, egg shaped object moving about 10-15MPH around 100 feet in the air. “The whole object was a light,” it was about 5 ft tall and 2 ft wide, it made no noise, and it had no wings, strings, blades, or clear source of propulsion. Then, about a quarter mile down the road (they were still driving), they saw the second one. It had the same characteristics as the first one, traveled at the same speed, same height, and same path (along Highway 185). Finally, another quarter mile down the road they saw the third (and final) one. They stopped to get out of their truck and got a clear view of the object (even better than the previous two). With their eyes fixed on the object (and adjusted to the light), they saw that it was unblemished (no ribbed rings, scratches, tubes, landing gear), and that it was clear. “Like a clear thick plastic.” Most notably, they say that they saw a figure inside of the third object. To them, it looked like a person sitting down. They stayed for a little bit after the third one passed but they did not see another object follow. Overall they saw all three objects for a total of about 5 minutes. They saw the last one for nearly three minutes. The next day my grandfather called around the city to see if anybody had called about seeing something similar. He knows for sure that he called the Victoria Sheriff’s Department and “some nearby federal office.” However, he is unsure which federal office he called. He said he may have called the Air Force.

I have been searching for an explanation to a strange light that appeared in our bedroom over 20 years ago and have exhausted all conventional explanations. I’ll try to be as brief as possible without leaving out details. The incident was so out of the ordinary that it is burned into the memories of my husband and myself.
I woke up one night to the sound of our dog growling. A white light, roughly the diameter of a dinner plate, was moving slowly and randomly across our ceiling, much like a searchlight would. It was extremely bright, I would say self illuminating, and solid like a laser light, (more so, even) with no diffusion toward the outer edges. My first thought was headlights coming through the window, but the blinds were closed and there was no shadow of the blinds across the light. Our dog, who had always been oblivious to headlights flashing on the living room wall and loved playing flashlight tag, growled the entire time.
I watched it move like this for perhaps more than a minute, then reached beneath the covers to shake my husband’s arm (he could sleep through a bomb blast!) and he woke with a start, mumbling “What?” The second he spoke the light shot across the ceiling and down the wall, disappearing through the floor. I will note here the corner of the bed and the dresser were between the windows and the section of the wall the light went down, further discounting the source coming from outside.
“What the hell was that?” he said, now fully awake. To this day we both regret not getting out of bed and heading downstairs to investigate, but we were both so dumbstruck by what we had just witnessed.
My apologies for the length of this account, but I wanted to get all the facts in. I am grasping at straws now; I don’t know if this is UFO related, ghost related (they are the next ones I will check with) or what, but I would just like to know if others have had this same experience.
I’m not asking for an investigation, especially considering the lapse of time involved, but I would just like a simple “Yes, others have experienced this,” or “No, don’t waste our time with weird lights in your bedroom,” if you can manage it. NOTE: The above photo is real but from another sighting.
This case is under investigation by State Section Director Jack Nicholias of MUFON New Jersey.
Early on the morning of March 31, Jeno Udvardy, a 1956 Hungarian refugee, was driving home from a late work shift near Vicksburg, Michigan. When he reached the crest of a hill he saw a cluster of lights on the road ahead which he assumed was an ambulance at an accident. He slowed and approached cautiously.
When within about 10 feet of the lights, he suddenly realized that they were not on any recognizable vehicle.
Instead they were seen to be on a disc-shaped object hovering a few feet above the road and blocking his passage.
Brilliant lights from the object, some steady and some blinking, concealed some details of the object. Udvardy became frightened and tried to back away from the strange object. At that moment his car was buffeted violently as if by strong gusts of wind.
Then he saw what he first thought was another object hovering behind his car, but a quick glance ahead slowed that the object was no longer on the road ahead.
Apparently it had darted overhead and taken a new position behind him. The same pattern of lights was visible on the object.
Udvardy then realized that his motor had stalled. (It is not known whether this was due to electro-magnetic interference as reported in many cases, but he could easily have stalled the car in the excitement of the moment). He rolled down his window and looked out. For the first time he heard a low humming sound like a swarm of bees. Moments later, the UFO rose abruptly and sped off at a steep angle, disappearing in the eastern sky.
Having experienced Communist terrorism and other violence in his native country, Udvardy told the NICAP investigator, he did not scare easily. But this encounter with something unknown had shaken him. The incident probably lasted less than a minute, but, for many minutes Udvardy sat in the car regaining his composure before he was able to drive home.
At his wife’s urging he reported the experience to the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s office. He later became somewhat bitter over the ridicule his report evoked. However, he stuck to his story in the face of skepticism though he had nothing to gain from it. NOTE: The above image is CGI
At 2:10 a.m. on the morning of April 23, Ronald E. Johnson, a farmer living on Route #2 in Yorktown, a few miles west of Clarinda, Iowa, was awakened by a loud roar. On getting up and going to his window, which faced south, he saw a cigar-shaped object, approximately 60 feet in length, landing in a field within 50 feet of his house.
The object, which had apparently come out of the north, came into view as it moved over the house. The night was foggy and a light rain was falling at the time. No moon or stars were visible.
The roar of the object ceased as it landed. On the end of the object closest to the, house, Johnson saw a brilliant red light, which bathed the area in a “blood red” glow. On the farthest end, he saw two blue lights approximately eight inches in diameter, which extended above the body of the object.
The surface of the object was of a dull finish, except for an amber glow that extended partway along the bottom. The object rested on a series of from 17 to 20 long “legs.”
After landing, the object gave off a series of loud, explosive, “cracking” noises, like gunshots, at regular intervals. Johnson said the air was filled with an odor which he described as similar to ozone. He saw nothing leaving or entering the object. He watched it sitting motionless in his field for about 20 minutes and finally went back to bed.
He got up a short time later to see if it was still there, but it had either departed silently, or had turned out its lights. The explosive sounds were no longer heard.
In the morning, Johnson discovered that sometime during the night his livestock had all bolted to the far end of the pasture and appeared to be “acting up considerably.”
They would not return for feeding that morning. Examining the landing site he found a series of circular impressions six inches in diameter and spaced alternately in two rows. The distance between impressions was two and a half feet.
To the east of the landing impressions he found a second set of imprints, round on one side and square-edged on the other, and divided at the squared-off edge into three sections (see diagram). These impressions were not made by his cattle, according to the farmer.
One other peculiar detail was noticed: two power line poles appeared to have fresh depressions in the wood at regular intervals, as if it had been recently climbed. The poles were smeared with dirt. Wires rising on the poles had small, regular-spaced notches.
Johnson reported the incident to Deputy Sheriff Dick Hunt, who made an investigation. A complete report was said to have been sent to Offut Air Force base; however, Johnson was not queried by any official investigators, and if the report is among those in the official files, it was not released to the University of Colorado, who requested information on it in July, 1967.
Additional details were obtained for NICAP by member Dennis Hicks. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
When I was around 10 or 11, I spent a lot of time with my dad out in Kentucky. I remember swimming one summer night with my sister when we both saw an orange orb rise up over the horizon. It caught my attention when I heard what sounded like a hum/tv static. Shortly after, it caught my sister’s attention. The coyotes in the woods were howling like crazy- more than normal. I had several images flash into my head, most consisting of a series of symbols then an image of a human-like alien creature with slightly enlarged black eyes, pale blue skin, and striping with chromatophores that shimmered in different colors when it expressed different emotions factually. It was like it had attempted to communicate with me. We both watched the craft as it hovered over neighboring farms near ours and, when it was done hovering, it shot straight up into the sky and disappeared. Once it was gone, we decided to go inside and nearly 2 hours had passed by in what felt like minutes. Even now, 11 years later, I still get images of the symbols from time to time and the creature still shows up to me in dreams and meditations. NOTE: The above drawing was submitted by the witness.
APRIL 6, 1966 …………………….WESTALL MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA
A CANBERRA academic is investigating one of Australia’s most compelling UFO mysteries, a sighting by hundreds of people in the Melbourne suburb of Westall on April 6, 1966.
More than 200 students and staff from two schools watched as the object landed in a nearby paddock, lifted off and vanished.
Shane Ryan, an English lecturer at the University of Canberra, is interviewing dozens of witnesses for a book he hopes to publish on the 40th anniversary of the sighting.
Mr Ryan, 38, was alerted to the events in the 1980s by a housemate who was there. Unlike most UFO sightings, the Westall object had a large number of credible witnesses. It was viewed in daylight and attracted a forceful response from police and the RAAF.
“It had these rather interesting elements which indicated to me that, unlike some other so-called UFO stories, there was some substance to this,” he told The Sunday Age.
“I knew the 40th anniversary was coming up next year, so I thought it was timely to do some research on it.”
Mr Ryan has interviewed about 30 witnesses, mostly former staff and students from the Westall secondary and primary schools. He has tried obtaining police and RAAF reports, but so far with little luck. The story was covered then by Channel Nine, The Age and local newspapers.
On the UFO, everyone seems to agree, Mr Ryan says. It was a low-flying, silver/grey shining object, either of classical flying saucer shape or close to it, “a cup turned upside down on a saucer”.
The students were familiar with light aircraft because the schools were close to Moorabbin Airport. Although the UFO was of similar size, “everyone said straight away that they knew it was not a plane,” Mr Ryan said, nor a weather balloon.
The object was in view for up to 20 minutes, and many saw it descend. Most agree it landed behind pine trees at the Grange Reserve. Dozens of students ran across what was then an open paddock to the reserve to investigate, but the object had lifted off and vanished.
Other details are sketchier. The UFO appears to have left a circle of scorched grass; others say several circles were left in paddocks bordering Grange Reserve. Many witnesses, not all, report seeing aircraft, up to five, trailing the UFO. Some say it made no sound, others say it did.
Many reported that police/air force/military personnel inspected the site; some (not all) say the authorities burnt the site. The Dandenong Journal, for which the story was front-page news two weeks in a row, reported that “students and staff have been instructed to ‘talk to no-one’ about the incident.”
Nevertheless, one teacher, Andrew Greenwood, gave the paper a detailed account.
“It was silvery-grey and seemed to thicken at times,” he said. “The thickening was similar to when a disc is turned a little to show the underside.”
One of the closest witnesses was a boy whose family leased land at Grange Reserve for horses.Shaun Matthews (not a student at Westall) was on holidays and spending time on the land.
“I saw the thing come across the horizon and drop down behind the pine trees,” he told The Sunday Age this week. “I couldn’t tell you what it was. It certainly wasn’t a light aircraft or anything of the like …
“I saw the thing drop down behind the pine trees and saw it leave again. I couldn’t tell you how long it was there for, it was such a long time ago.” Mr Matthews, 51 and now living in Greenvale, said the object “went up and off very very rapidly”.
“I went over and there was a circle in the clearing. It looked like it had been cooked or boiled, not burnt as I remember,” he said. “A heap of kids from Westall primary and high school came charging through to see what had happened — ‘look at this, look at that, we saw it as well’, that sort of thing. It was a bit of a talking point for a couple of days.”
Mr Matthews said the object, about the size of “two family cars”, passed him at a distance of about “four football fields”. “It was silvery, but it had a sort-of purple hue to it, very bright, but not bright enough that you couldn’t look at it,” he said.
“I saw that it dropped down behind the trees, and I thought, ‘hello, hang on’. A minute or so later, it went straight up, just gone.”
He said police and other officials interviewed his mother. But he cannot remember them burning the landing site, as others have alleged. And he did not see any light aircraft trailing the object, as others did.
“The way this thing moved there is no way it could have been a weather balloon or a light aircraft,” he said.
“A helicopter? No way — no noise, wrong shape, and it didn’t move like it. It came out of the distance, stopped, and then just dropped.
“It didn’t just sort of cruise and then slightly descend at an angle. It just stopped, dropped, and then went straight up.”
The Victorian UFO Research Society investigated the incident. VUFORS secretary Tony Cook said Westall remained one of Australia’s major unexplained UFO cases. The top one was the case of Frederick Valentich, a 20-year-old Melbourne pilot whose light plane disappeared while flying over Bass Strait in 1978.
In the last minutes of radio communication, Valentich reported seeing a UFO hovering above his plane. He and his craft were never recovered.
“It’s pretty well documented,” Mr Cook said. “That’s probably the most important one because it involves the disappearance of a person.”
Mr Cook said the society’s stance on UFOs was that, “there are people out there seeing unusual things in the sky at times and they can’t be explained. But it’s a very big leap to go from unexplained things in the sky to extraterrestrials.” Most witnesses, including Mr Matthews, say the UFO was not an aircraft or helicopter. But Westall is only six kilometres from Moorabbin Airport, and the object was roughly headed in that direction, travelling north to south.
“It sounds to me like some sort of experimental craft, very much Earth-based,” Steve Roberts, of Australian Skeptics, said.
“It is an interesting event with lots of witnesses and what we now call a crop circle.
“Accounts are confused. Some have the object landing and taking off again, others say ‘a paddock over which the object seemed to hover’.”
As well, “if there was a whole swag of officials investigating it, there must be an official report in RAAF archives somewhere”.
But Mr Ryan said that no one at the RAAF knew of the incident. But given the history of the case — the way students and staff were told to keep quiet from the start — that was not surprising, he said.
“As I got a little bit older, I got a little more interested in the social and historical aspects of the story, how something like this could have happened and how it reflected society at the time, and how authorities responded to it,” he said.
“There’s been a layer of secrecy that was very, very prominent in this story from the beginning.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Caught up in the war around them, American GIs stationed in South Vietnam in June 1966 rarely had reason to speculate about UFOs — at least until the little-known Nha Trang UFO incident took place.
The Nha Trang incident if thorough documentation can be obtained, could become a UFO “classic” according to one NICAP investigator familiar with the case.
The sighting allegedly occurred during one of the most active periods of the Vietnam conflict, and understandably received little publicity at the time. Now, however, with American participation in the war concluded, numerous war-related incidents are beginning to emerge. One of these involves a startling UFO sighting witnessed by possibly thousands of soldiers stationed in Vietnam at the time.
NICAP investigator Raymond Fowler conducted an initial investigation into the sighting and was able to contact an eyewitness to the event.
Nha Trang, at the time of the reported incident, was a heavily defended base in South Vietnam located along the coastline, which has now become an important area of tourism in Vietnam and that nowadays, specifically in this area, many Nha Trang hotels and guide tours are now available for tourists. But in 1966, it served as the home base for more than 40,000 troops, including 2,000 American GIs.
The base was situated in a valley, with warehouses and an airstrip to the east, a fuel storage area and hills to the west, and docks and storage facilities located to the south along the China Sea.
According to the witness, eight bulldozers were operating that night cutting roads around “Hawk Hill,” located less than one-half mile to the west of the American compound. On another part of the base, two “sky-Raider” prop-driven aircraft were warming up on the airstrip located less than a mile to the east. At the same time, a Shell Oil tanker lay anchored in the bay about a mile to the southwest.
The witness, an enlisted soldier holding the rank of Specialist 5, had gathered with an undetermined number of fellow soldiers around 8 p.m. in an open area of the base to watch an outdoor movie.
Outdoor films had become possible only recently, according to the witness, thanks to the arrival and installation of six, new, independently-operated, 100 KW diesel-powered generators. One of these generators had been installed near the compound where the soldiers were seated and was being used to supply power for the movie projector.
The film had been underway for some time, according to the witness’s account, when suddenly, at approximately 9:45 p.m., the sky to the north lit up! The GIs glanced up and saw what at first appeared to be a flare exploding above a ridge to the north.
“At first we thought it was a flare which are going off all the time and then we found that it wasn’t” recounts a letter from the witness mailed home a few days later.
“It came from the north and was moving from real slow to real fast…Some of the jet fighter pilots which were here…said it looked to be about 25,000 feet (in altitude)… then the panic broke loose. It dropped right towards us and stopped dead still about 300 to 500 feet up. It made this little valley and the mountains around look like it was the middle of the day; it lit up everything.
“Then it went up and I mean up. It went straight up and completely out of sight in about 2-3 seconds. Everybody is still talking about it.”
Had the soldier’s letter or his recent account of the incident stopped there, the case would probably not have come to the attention of either NICAP or the officials from Washington that reportedly visited the base the next day. But the letter and the witness’s account of the incident continues:
“That really shook everyone is that it stopped, or maybe it didn’t, but anyway our generator stopped and everything was black. At the Air Force Base about one half mile from here all generators stopped.
The engines on two planes that were the runway ready to take off stopped, and there wasn’t a car, truck, plane or anything that ran for about four minutes.”
In addition, the eight bulldozers working on nearby hills also ceased operating according to the witness.
“A whole plane load of big shots from Washington got here this afternoon to investigate. It’s on the radio over here. Is it at home? I swear if somebody says they saw a little green man I won’t argue with them.”
“Little green man” or not, the case could prove to be highly significant, despite the current lack of additional information.
Compounding this problem is the witness’s inability to recall anything more than the nicknames of those he was serving with at Nha Trang.
Of extreme interest to NICAP, and apparently of equal interest to the “big shots” from Washington,” was the associated EM effects reportedly caused by the strange UFO.
The fact that diesel and gasoline engines scattered throughout the base all ceased to operate at the same time and remained inoperative for more than four minutes provides added mystery to the event.
Included in the list of engines that ceased running at the time of the sighting, according to the witness, were those of the two “Sky Raiders” warming up on the nearby runway. One can only speculate what might have happened had they suffered a power loss while airborne.
NICAP is currently attempting to contact appropriate Army officials in an effort to obtain the names of other enlisted or officer personnel who might have witnessed the event. NICAP is also seeking to determine whether officials from Washington did in fact visit Nha Trang the next day to investigate the sighting. NOTE: The above photo is real but from another case file.
Hi Ken: The morning sky was clear blue so without hesitation I ventured outside into the back garden with my Nikon P900 camera in order to sky watch and see what I could capture. I was looking east and it wasn’t very long before I spotted an object that caught my interest. As I observed the object I could see that it had the appearance of a cube with rounded corners. There also seemed to be three rectangular holes within the cube itself that could have possibly been windows. What really struck me as being odd though, was the fact that the cube was casting a visible black shadow in the sky, which was very strange, but this was probably due to an effect caused by the propulsion system of this anti gravitational craft. I quickly took some photographs and watched as it shot off into the atmosphere and disappeared from view. Unfortunately I only managed to capture the cube shaped craft in one of the photographs due to the excessive speed it was travelling at. In the photograph you can see the focus point of the craft that is visible as a white dot, high above it, slightly off to the right. A focus point is a distortion in space time, a “gravity well” that the craft is able to produce anywhere outside of it’s body in certain allowable proximity’s within the generated torus field, in order to focus it’s gravitational waves towards. This is in order to propel the craft away or towards the focus point by using the gravity amplifiers that are movable in any direction inside the belly of the craft. This focus point of distortion is obviously generated by an advance collider type technology within the perimeter of the craft. This is very interesting I only wish I could get my hands on technology like this. I am really envious of the American government having off world vehicles that are not made on this earth in their possession at the S-4 test site at Papoose lake Lincoln County, Nevada. If only the American government would lift this veil of secrecy and allow all the top scientists from around the world to work full time on this unimpeded. This would allow them to back engineer these crafts properly and fully understand the technology within them, finding practical applications for all of it a lot quicker in order to elevate humanity to the next level and become a formidable force within this universe. The Photograph was taken at 11:16 AM on the 14th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All The Best John.
Five credible witnesses saw a UFO and one of its passengers on Presque Isle Park. Two women clearly saw a strange being. John Keel, respected paranormalist, investigated.
The summer of 1966 was a strange one for some Erie residents. Eight gave descriptions of the alien beings they saw. People reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky. Something was eerie in Erie, the city of the canal folk song fame.
A glowing object landed on Erie’s Presque Isle Park deserted beach during the night of July 31, 1966, a few hundred feet from a car that was bogged down in the sand with five young people in it.
The terrified witnesses, with no escape, watched. After the craft landed, they saw it send strange rays of light into the woods close by.
A tall dark figure slowly moved awkwardly toward the car, adding to their terror. It scratched the vehicle’s roof, then left.
The witnesses reported the incident to the police. During the investigation the next day, large amounts of silicon and some cone-like indentations were found in the sand where the craft had landed.
Presque Isle police vouched for the sincerity of the witnesses who were still very very scared when they reported the event. Many other Erie residents reported seeing bizarre lights or, as some would say, “UFOs,” in the sky that night. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
While looking for Saturn/Jupiter in the sky, I saw something bright, which I thought was a star or planet. I took the picture and when I blew it up, it was a cylindrical mass falling from the sky. It left a trail behind which I could not see until I looked at the picture. When enlarging the picture further, it looked like a half a cylinder with a cored out middle. It was golden colored.
MUFON investigator classified this case as IFO–IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT…..SATURN
On Jan 5th 2021 1:34 AM CST a red-orange pulsating UFO emerged from the horizon tree line around Lake Powell, ascended to roughly 45 degrees above the horizon and continued east for roughly 2 1/2 minutes before disappearing in the middle of the sky. The pulsating object was not using standard aviation forward/rear navigation lights (red/green/white), and appeared “saturn-like” in shape when zoomed in with a super-zoom camera (Nikon Coolpix P1000). The weather conditions were 44 degrees Fahrenheit with 0 MPH wind. Flightaware flight tracking was checked and there was no aircraft in the vicinity. The object was recorded on both a Nest 1080p home security camera in night-vision mode, and a hand-held Nikon Coolpix P1000. Cropped and zoomed videos provided, full raw Nest cam footage available by investigator request. A single frame (@15 seconds) of Nikon Coolpix P1000 video footage is included to showcase the “saturn-like” shape of the orange object. Nikon footage is shaky due to zoom level and being hand-held without tripod.
At exactly 7:58 this evening, my dog started barking in an unusual manner outside. On our back deck at 7:59 PM I recorded 2 videos of what I perceived to be a fairly large aircraft flying very slowly, low over my house at first, then just over treetops from a 230* SW direction towards NW 316*. By the naked eye, it had three prominent white lights blinking together, alternating with a very bright red light, but in between that pattern there were other flashes on the craft and seemingly around it/beside it, unknown if this was another craft or attached to it (maybe larger than I thought). The videos, when slowed down, shows every color on the rainbow. I went inside after losing sight of it, but when my dog barked again 5 minutes later, I went back out to find it flying over my house again opposite the original direction, towards 178* S, where it went into the woods in National Forrest land- it disappeared from sight and I am unsure if it landed back there or if the mountain blocked my view. Glassy Mountain does have a landing pad on it and is in that general direction from here, unknown for sure. Its flight path was very smooth but not steady: slow drifting to the side, decelerating with several seconds of hovering multiple times, then accelerating again.
It was completely silent, during and after- no sound whatsoever. A very similar completely silent craft actually landed in the woods SW of my house, fairly close but on my neighbors property, on November 18, 2020 at 10:44 PM. Similar colors, flight characteristics. Other flashing lights are seen flying beside and around the craft at various points on different flight paths, not seen by naked eye. Dog also went crazy barking and tore after it that night, alerting me to its presence. Tried to check out that area the next day but no trespassing is strictly enforced by our friendly neighbor, so unable to reach area. Pictures above are still frames from the video. Someone talented in audiovisual effects could probably change the contrast and lighting and pick up on the actual form of the craft, but I am not that person.
I was taking my Great Dane out in the back yard, on a leash, so she could go to the bathroom. I don’t know why, but I happened to look up at the backyard of my neighbor’s house & saw a triangular shaped ‘ship’. It looked small, was white on the outside & had an ‘indentation’ that looked dark brown on the bottom. Honestly, before I knew it it was over the top of me & my Dane. We were by the back of the house. She was just sniffing around. I don’t know why I looked up again, but I did. It was bigger, the same colors & shape. It didn’t look big enough to hold a person; but somehow I knew ‘they’ were going to ‘take’ me. I know it sounds stupid, but it is true. I was so full of fear that the only thing I could think of to do was to call my mom. She is my Best Friend, I started to dial & honestly it “the ship?’ was gone, I felt relieved as if I’d just averted a terrible thing. I swear I somehow knew that ‘they’ were going to ‘take me up on their ship’ , I know it’s not as detailed, but I’ve tried not to talk about it. I’ve mentioned it to my child & husband, but I don’t bring it up to my mom as she has too many things to worry about & her health. I don’t want her to worry. I hope I’ve explained well enough. No one believes me. Maybe you know someone who knows what happened. I don’t know how, but I just knew stuff. It was too small, but I knew they were going to take me up & I was afraid my Dane as well. I am sorry that I don’t have any photos or sketches. If you want I will try to do the best I can. It was a long time ago, but I can not forget it or how scared I was. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was on my phone while sitting on my balcony. I realized it was really bright around me, so I closed my phone. When I realized the brightness was coming from above, I saw a huge, bright ship. As I stood up, the ship flipped on its side, so the dome part was facing me. It went pretty high in the sky and then began to move right. After traveling for a while, it stayed in one spot and hung there. It kept coming back every night for a few weeks, maybe a couple of months. After the first few times of seeing just one ship, I noticed on Sept 4, and there were two ships. They stay for a while. I would stay out there and watch them a few times, but I would hang in the sky for so long, way past the stars disappearing in the morning time. The video is the initial sighting that occurred.
Hi Ken: I was outside in the back garden sky watching and there really didn’t seem to be that much air traffic about, it seemed unusually quiet up there. I sat there waiting patiently for any unidentified objects to fly over the area and after about 20 minutes of scanning the sky for anything that was unusual, I finally spotted a black object that was quite far off in the distance. The black object seemed to be heading in my direction and as it got closer I could see that it was in fact saucer shaped. The saucer shaped object was now directly above the town when all of a sudden it made a turn and slowly began to climb in altitude. I immediately photographed it with my Nikon P900 camera and watched as it climbed higher and higher into the atmosphere until I lost sight of it. I was very excited I had just witnessed another alien saucer flying high above the town centre. These UFOs are so prevalent around this area of Devon and I’m really surprised that more people don’t report seeing them. The photograph was taken at 1:23 PM on the 7th of January 2021, at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.
During the week of August 10th-14th 2015 Myself, my Spouse and her brother went on a camping trip to Parsons landing, which is located on the East coast of Catalina Island (located off the coast of California) towards the north tip of the island. The campsite is literally on the beach facing east (slightly north east) looking at California’s west coast (basically looking at LA). During one night well after sunset we were all sitting around talking and just enjoying the moment, when I notice a ball of light making extreme maneuvers that defy normal aircraft capabilities. I made it aware to look at what I was watching. Only a few seconds had elapsed from the time I realized what I was looking at a UFO and telling to look at the Light. Now all three of us are watching this light maneuver around over the ocean roughly 500ft-2000ft. (the coast of California is barely visible from the coast of Catalina at its distance of 22 miles, its extremely dark out on the beach at parsons landing). The light then split into two lights which were a glowing color of whitish, yellowish gold. They then started to dance together to sort of speak. Making extremely abnormal flight paths but staying relatively close to each other. They then come back together to form a single star like color/shape (back to the original “form”), and then descended into the ocean. Then before us three could even say anything, the light ascended out of the ocean split into two star-like lights, danced around (making extreme movements up, down ,left ,right within a blink of an eye) then coming back together to form one light and then descend back into the ocean. This entire experience happened over the course of roughly 5-7 minutes in length (from the time I noticed the UFO to the time it’s last descent into the ocean). NOTE: The above UFO is real but from another case file.
On July 31 and August 1, 1966, there was a flurry of sightings in the general area of Washington and Baltimore. Prince Georges County police watched lighted objects maneuvering erratically across the sky. In Baltimore, residents of the Country Ridge housing development were awakened early in the morning of August 1 by barking dogs.
At least two families saw a hovering, egg-shaped object with flashing lights on the top and bottom. The object made a loud whirring or whining noise, according to the Baltimore News-American (8/1).
That night, physicist Vasil Uzunoglu, a consultant on micro-electronics, was driving north and east on the Capital (Washington, D.C.) Beltway about 10:55 p.m. (EDT). He had passed Andrews Air Force Base when, out of his open left window, he saw a light descend and appear to hover briefly, then move rapidly to the east.
Minutes later an oblong object “like a submarine” descended over a house to his left. This time the UFO was much closer, its apparent size as large as the house. Dr. Uzunoglu slowed his car and looked at the object, now an estimated 200 feet away, for about ten seconds.
At this point it showed details of structure: a peaked top with a red light; an apparently rounded undersurface with red lights; and a large yellow revolving light slightly off-center.
“I could see clearly the top of the body, which was a dark, non-shining material with no sharp edges,” he told NICAP. “The most striking part was the eye-like object off-center to the right, with two distinct yellow regions. . . (The lower region) was revolving, blinking or scanning. . . “
Dr. Uzunoglu turned his attention to the highway again, noting that no other cars were in sight. When he glanced back again, the object was moving south “at a very high speed and comparatively low elevation.” He said it disappeared in seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Between 12:00 and 12:15 PM, Sept. 11, 2010, I was out walking my dog in the yard when I saw this bright, blue-white light as high up in the sky as I could see.
It was falling at an incredible speed over Kahului, and seemingly landed towards Lao Needle north of the airport. It seemed like it crashed into the earth, but there was no noise.
The second it hit there was a rolling blackout for about 15 seconds. We live at the top of Haleakala and have strange sightings pretty much everyday. 3 nights ago on Sept 8th at 1:00 AM exactly, there were 3 discs floating above the gulch directly across from our house. We are the only ones with a view of this area.
They had a band of streaming orange lights left to right scanning movement – over the cattle fields. We watched them there for about half an hour. It looked like a jellyfish – a disc with lights hanging from below.
After watching for about 30 minutes, we tried to take pictures but the phone and camera batteries were all dead, and when we came inside all our clocks read different times.
On Sept 7th we were driving down old Haleakala Hwy around 5 PM, there is always a lot of air traffic over Kahului, with the airport right there; however, we spotted an unidentified floating object straight over the town of Wailuku.
It was disc-shaped and silver, the sun was reflecting off of it very brightly. It was a little bigger than an airplane, but just sitting in one place, that is how it caught my attention.
I began to look closer and it began moving to the south at a very slow speed – this is when I realized that it was definitely no aircraft that I have ever seen. Then it definitely had my attention.
It moved back and forth north to south from Lao Needle over to Lao Valley 3 times and it came back to rest over Wailuku, floating there for about another 30 seconds. Then at incredible speeds it looked like it fell from the sky, hit the ground then shot back up and into Lao Valley like lightning. It was the creepiest thing that I have ever seen. I was shaken by that experience deeply, but since then the sightings have only gotten more numerous.
The picture is from August 23, taken straight from my Blackberry phone. I’m not sure what is going on here, but it is definitely something.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I have posted to the Phenomena website a whole range of reports, interviews and official documents that I collected during my years as a UFO investigator in the UK and that I had not previously highlighted or published.
I recently received an email from a guy who had read the material on the site and he asked me what I considered to be the strangest official UFO related document that I had ever found in the British Government’s archives.
I really didn’t have to give this much thought: I knew instantly what my answer would be.
Without doubt the most unusual report (in my opinion, at least) I ever came across at the National Archive (formerly the Public Record Office) at Kew, England, surfaced in 1999.
It concerns an incident that dated from 1966 and that originated with the British Royal Air Force’s Provost and Security Services – an elite arm of the RAF that until 1998 had its headquarters at a British RAF base named Rudloe Manor, and that has for many years been the alleged central hub for classified, official UFO investigations.
In a painstakingly-detailed report, one Corporal R.A. Rickwood of the P&SS Special Investigation Section, related to his superiors the facts:
On 10th November 1966 a telephone message was received from Flight Lieutenant Williams, RAF Shawbury, reporting that a Mrs. Foulkes of [Address of the witness] Shrewsbury, had complained that his daughter had been frightened by an object in the sky whilst she had been driving along the A5 road near Great Ness at 2355 hours on 8th November 1966.
This object had emitted brilliant lights and radiation beams. On arriving home her daughter had been in a distressed condition and she had discovered marks on the car, which she considered were burn marks.
On 14th November 1966, Miss Diane Foulkes, aged 22 years, a typist employed in Shrewsbury was seen at her home in the presence of her parents. She stated that she had received a letter dated 11th November 1966 from RAF Shawbury signed by a Flight Lieutenant Penny informing her that no service aircraft had been flying in that area at the time of the incident.
She was now satisfied that the incident was in no way connected with the Royal Air Force or the Armed Forces.
She then went on to relate her experiences connected with this enquiry. There had been two similar incidents. The first occurred two years ago in November 1964, when she had been driving from Shrewsbury to her home along the A5 road.
This was at about 0200 hours as she neared the Montford Bridge over the River Severn. Approximately midway between Shrewsbury and Great Ness a brightly lit circular object appeared in the sky above her car.
She had been frightened and had accelerated along the road. The object had kept pace with her remaining at the same height until she arrived home.
She had told her mother and father who also watched the object.
She described the object as an especially bright light in the sky which remained stationary due west from their home for about half an hour. It had then rapidly diminished in size and they assumed it had accelerated away from them. No sound was heard from the object.
The light was yellow in colour and became red as it diminished.
The second incident occurred on the 8th November 1966 at 2355 hours and again whilst she was returning from Shrewsbury on the same road.
The object had again appeared at Montford Bridge but this time it was much lower in the sky and on the north side of the road.
On this occasion she could see rays of light shooting from the object which had again appeared to keep station with her car until she arrived home. At one time during the journey the object travelled near her and the rays seemed to come towards the right hand side of her car.
She felt a bump against that side as if they had struck it. At this moment she felt as if she had received an electric shock and had felt a severe pain in her neck.
The left-hand side headlight of the car also went out. This made her extremely frightened. When she got home she felt very ill and had complained to her parents.
The object again remained stationary in the sky north of her home and had not been seen by her parents. They had noticed it for a short time before going inside her home.
There had been no sign of the object on the following morning.
Miss Foulkes’ parents confirmed seeing an object in the sky on both occasions as described by their daughter and agreed with her descriptions of these.
Miss Foulkes further stated that she believed that the objects could be associated with a Mr Griffin who lived in the area and who is reputed to have made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met one of the occupants.
He is also alleged to make his contacts with them at Montford Bridge.
The local civil police had no information or reports of sightings of objects in the sky. There is no evidence to associate the incidents complained of with the Royal Air Force and the complainant Miss Foulkes is now satisfied that the incidents are unexplainable and are in no way connected with the Armed Forces.
In essence, that is the file. It is clear from examining its contents that the witness had reported some stunning experiences: “the rays of shooting light” that enveloped her car; the electric shock-like pain that surged through her neck as the vehicle was bathed in the beam of light; the loss of power from the car’s headlights (something that is reported time and again in UFO encounters); and the potentially-worrying fact that the experience had left the witness “very ill.”
Perhaps the most significant factor, however, was the reference of the Provost and Security Services to a man in the near vicinity that had reputedly “made contact with these objects and actually entered one and met the occupants.”
Prior to the 1970s, very little exposure was given to so-called alien abduction incidents; however, many of the factors present in the P&SS report lead me to believe that something very strange indeed had taken place in the Great Ness area of Shrewsbury in 1966, and that that “something” was very possibly connected with abduction-like encounters.
Oddly, despite the fact that the official file on this case was declassified more than half a decade ago -and the document at issue has been examined by a number of UFO researchers – it seems that little or no attempt has been made to resolve the case.
Perhaps now with its contents highlighted here, someone will take a fresh look at the case and attempt to resolve the question of what really happened nearly 40 years ago at Montford Bridge. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

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

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

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

In an exclusive feature for The Debrief, U.S. military and intelligence officials, as well as Pentagon emails, offer an unprecedented glimpse behind the scenes of what’s currently going on with The Pentagon’s investigation into UFOs, or as they term them, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP).
For the last two years, the Department of Defense’s newly revamped “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force” (or UAPTF) has been busy briefing lawmakers, Intelligence Community stakeholders, and the highest levels of the U.S. military on encounters with what they say are mysterious airborne objects that defy conventional explanations.
Along with classified briefings, multiple senior U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter say two classified intelligence reports on UAP have been widely distributed to the U.S. Intelligence Community. Numerous sources from various government agencies told The Debrief that these reports include clear photographic evidence of UAP. The reports also explicitly state that the Task Force is considering the possibility that these unidentified objects could, as stated by one source from the U.S. Intelligence Community said, be operated by “intelligences of unknown origin.”
Significantly, a retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general and head of RAND corporation’s Space Enterprise Initiative has—for the first time—gone on record to discuss some of the most likely explanations for UAP. His responses were surprising.
BRIEFINGS AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS
In June, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s FY2021 Intelligence Authorization Act contained an intriguing section titled report on “Advanced Aerial Threats.” In the inclusion, the committee gave an eye-opening official hint (in recent history) the government takes UFOs seriously by offering its support for the “efforts of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force at the Office of Naval Intelligence.” The Intelligence Committee additionally requested an unclassified report detailing the analysis of “UAP” or “Anomalous Aerial Vehicles.”
Though already acknowledged by the Intelligence Committee, in mid-August, the Pentagon formally acknowledged they had established a task force looking into UAP. In a press announcement, the Secretary of Defense’s Office stated, “the UAPTF’s mission will be to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.” According to the release, authority for the Task Force was approved by the DoD’s chief operating officer, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist.
The summer news of the establishment of the UAPTF seemingly suggests—for the first time since the shuttering of Project Blue Book (the Air Force’s official investigations into UFOs) in 1969—that the Pentagon is now taking the subject of UFOs seriously.
However, an internal email obtained by The Debrief shows that almost one year before the DoD’s announcement, the highest levels of the U.S. military were already being briefed on UAP.
The email, obtained via Freedom of Information Act request, shows an October 16th, 2019 exchange between then Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Robert Burke, and current Vice Chief of Staff for the Air Force General Stephen “Steve” Wilson.
In the email, Adm. Burke tells Gen. Wilson, “Recommend you take the brief I just received from our Director of Naval Intelligence VADM Matt Kohler, on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).” Adm. Burke concludes the email, “SECNAV [Secretary of the Navy] will get the same brief tomorrow at 1000.”
The “SECNAV” referenced in Adm. Burke’s email was then-Secretary of the Navy, Richard V. Spencer. A little over a month after this UAP briefing, Spencer was fired by then-Secretary of Defense Mark Esper over public disagreements stemming from a series of controversies involving the court-martial of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
Speaking on background, one U.S. Defense official lamented that a lack of continuity with DoD leadership might have hindered some of the UAPTF’s work. Within the past 24 months, there have been four different Secretaries of the Navy and five additional Secretaries of Defense. Vice Admiral Matt Kohler, noted for having provided the briefings, retired after 36 years with the Navy in June of this year.
Reaching out to several active government officials and individuals who retain their government-issued security clearances, The Debrief learned that last fall was a busy time for the UAPTF. On October 21st, 2019, a briefing on UAP was conducted at the Pentagon for several Senate Armed Services Committee staffers.
Attendees at the meeting told The Debrief that they were provided information on two previous DoD-backed UFO programs: The Advanced Aerial Weapons Systems Applications Program (AAWSAP) and the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). They were also briefed on “highly sensitive categories of UFO investigations.” Only two days later on October 23rd, staffers with the Senate Select Intelligence Committee were provided the same information in a meeting on Capitol Hill.
A former private contractor for AAWSAP and AATIP, Dr. Hal Puthoff, confirmed for The Debrief he was one of a handful of persons who conducted the October brie
