The craft was matt black with a gloss black windshield witch I could not see into and did not see any beings. The bottom was off white and was illuminated and it had plates on the bottom and two round cylinders which emanated a heat signature. The craft was shaped like a crab but with abbreviated wings which were swept back and it was colored like a manta ray. I was on my way to work at 5 ish in the morning. I looked to my right as I was crossing the Harrisburg bridge and there it was level with the bridge about 150 ft away from the bridge. I guess it saw me looking at it so it dipped below the bridge and appeared at the other end of the bridge. Then it flew over the bridge and hovered over the water, on the left side or south side, as I caught up to it it turned around towards the south but when it stopped it’s rotation, it wobbled a bit then it slowly flew off south towards the Harrisburg airport but still level with the bridge. It happened so fast I wish I had filmed it on my phone but seeing something like that is so shocking, I didn’t want to look away because it could disappear at a moments notice plus I was driving so that was dangerous enough.

A witness in Piedmont, Missouri, U.S. has reported sighting an alien entity on 24 May, 2013 at 11:10 PM. This report has been obtained from a testimony included in the database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), published on 26 May, 2013.
It reported to ASD by phone and the witness wishes to remain anonymous. The witness describes how he heard a strange sound. “I heard a strange humming sound outside of my house which is on 100 acres of wooded area near Piedmont, Missouri.” The witness describes what he saw, when he went outside to investigate the sound. He also talks about the color, direction and elevation of the object.
“I went outside to investigate what the low humming was and saw a large brightly glowing orange/red ball of light on the NE corner of my house, just above the roof line and approximately 15t. from the house.” He describes how it looked like a solid object. He also talks about his reaction and how he called his son to see it.
“It looked like a solid object underneath a halo of light surrounding it. I was standing about 30 ft. away from the object. I was in shock and stood there, frozen, while calling to my 36-year old son to come out to see it, which he did.” The witness then tells us how he and his son watched the object hovering in the same place for 20 minutes. He also talks about sighting more objects in the woods.
“We both watched as this object for about 20 minutes or so as it hovered in the same spot, wavering somewhat, then it moved to the Southeast and noticed that there were at least 10 more of these objects in the woods at and below the tree line about 100 yards from our position.” The witness further tells us how the object moved slowly towards the woods. “The object moved very slowly towards the woods, seeming to be unaware of our presence or not to care that we saw it.” He also describes his failed attempt to take pictures of the objects with his phone.
I tried desperately to get my cell phone to come on so I could take a picture but it would not work. I thought the battery was drained, but after the object was out of sight the phone resumed working.” The witness describes the humanoid being they encountered. He also tells us how it vanished.“There was a 4ft. tall humanoid being standing next to the tree and a little behind it. It looked greyish, but it was hard to tell in the darkness even though there was a full moon out. I just got a glimpse of it before it vanished.”
The witness talks about time dilution and how he realized that they had only spent a short time outside of the house. “When we got back inside I was shocked to see that it was at least 50 minutes to an hour later than when we went outside, as it seemed like only 20 minutes of time had lapsed.” The witness tells us how a helicopter followed the same direction of the UFOs as if trying to investigate.
‘Next, we heard a helicopter approach and looked out the window as it flew in the same direction as the UFOs. I have never seen a helicopter out here in my entire life. We did not go outside to look at it.” He describes how his son was approached by the police the next day to inquire about UFOs and aliens. “The next evening my son was in town getting some groceries when he was approached by two policemen. They asked my son how he was doing and if he believed in aliens or ever saw an alien. He replied that he did not.”
The witness then tells us how he and son did not recall the incidents of the previous night for a long time. “This event triggered the memory of the prior night and when he returned home he asked me if I recalled the same things he did, which I did recall, including the sighting of the being by the tree. We both found it extremely odd that we did not think of the previous night’s event earlier in the day, or that we were not more upset by it, and had not called anyone about it.”
The witness wonders how the police knew about the incident. He also tells us that his intention is not to gain publicity and he was scared by the incident. “How did the police know about this event? We spoke to no one about it. I called you to make this report in an effort to see if anyone else has reported anything similar but I don’t want any publicity and don’t want to talk to anyone else. The whole thing has me a little scared.”
The witness finally tells us that UFO activity in common in that region. “We have seen balls of light in this area before, and have seen unidentified objects, but nothing as close or as dramatic as this. My parents and grandparents owned this same land for many years, and they said that all kinds of weird stuff happened here but they did not talk about it much.” NOTE” The above image is CGI.
This object has been a reoccurring sighting almost every single night for the past few months it seems. Same thing same behavior, does strange tiny circles then stops then goes another direction very fast and immediately stops in place and repeats this pattern in varied orders but if you watch it long enough it will have made its way across long stretches of sky in time as if it is pretending to be a star to avoid being noticed.
That’s just my guess. Every once in a while you will see some sort of star like dot shoot at random angles from it but is so fast to the naked eye its almost impossible to notice unless using another form of viewing it. Some times will seem to split into two or more star like specs of light that almost immediately turn back into one light very quickly. Have observed through many forms of visuals via telescopes slow motion 4k videos and so on to get a better look at it. All the same rectangle like object that tilts side to side every once in a while as it is viewed as vertical oriented rectangle.
KENS NOTE: OVER THE YEARS I HAVE RECEIVED MANY UFO PHOTOS FROM SAN JOSE.
Philip Schneider was mysteriously found dead on January 16, 1996 after conducting several controversial lectures throughout the US, including Denver where he covered topics such as, Space-Defense, black helicopters, railroad cars built with shackles, extraterrestrials and the secret black budget.
Philip Schneider claimed to be an ex-government structural engineer who helped build deep underground military bases (DUMB) around the United States. He also claims to be one of only three people to survive the 1979 incident between the alien Grays and the US military at the Dulce, New Mexico underground base.
Philip voluntarily retired from the military after he disagreed with their spending, secrecy and unconstitutional actions.
His ex-wife, Cynthia Drayer believes that Philip Schneider was murdered because he publicly revealed the truth about the US government’s involvement with UFOs.
The following quote is from Philip Schneider from one of his lectures:
“I love the country I am living in more than I love my life, but I would not be standing before you now, risking my life, if I did not believe it was so. The first part of this talk is going to concern deep underground military bases and the Black Budget. The Black Budget is a secretive budget that garners 25% of the gross national product of the United States.
The Black Budget currently consumes $1.25 trillion per year. At least this amount is used in black programs, like those concerned with deep underground military bases.
Presently, there are 129 deep underground military bases in the United States”.
Philip Schneider recounts his encounter with extraterrestrials in the following excerpt:
“I was involved in building an addition to the deep underground military base at Dulce, which is probably the deepest base. My job was to go down the holes and check the rock samples, and recommend the explosive to deal with the particular rock.
As I was headed down there, we found ourselves amidst a large cavern that was full of outer-space aliens, otherwise known as large Greys.
I shot two of them.
At that time, there were 30 people down there. About 40 more came down after this started, and all of them got killed.
We had surprised a whole underground base of existing aliens.
Later, we found out that they had been living on our planet for a long time, perhaps a million years. This could explain a lot of what is behind the theory of ancient astronauts.”
“Anyway, I got shot in the chest with one of their weapons, which was a box on their body that blew a hole in me and gave me a nasty dose of cobalt radiation. I have had cancer because of that.”
“I didn’t get really interested in UFO technology until I started work at Area 51, north of Las Vegas. After about two years recuperating after the 1979 incident, I went back to work for Morrison and Knudson, EG&G and other companies. “
Philip Schneider released a lot of information pertaining to a supposed deep underground base under Denver International Airport as well. He said these underground bases were all throughout the US and they all were connected by a super highway.
Philip’s father Oscar Schneider was also said to have worked on secret government projects including the Philadelphia Experiment, which is the disputed story of the US Navy who supposedly made their large ship invisible for a brief amount of time. Philip and his family were reportedly harassed by government agents including his daughter who says she was being followed and monitored at school. Philip’s ex-wife Cynthia Drayer does not believe that he committed suicide. Here are some of her reasons:
1. “There was no suicide note.”
2. “Philip always told his friends and relatives, that if he ever ‘committed suicide’ you would know that he had been murdered”.
3. “From a number of sources, including his taped lectures (video and audio), and statements to his friends, and the borrowing of a 9mm gun, Philip felt that he and his family were being threatened and were in danger because of his lectures”.
4. “All of his lecture materials, alien metals, higher math books, photographs of UFO’s coming out of the Operation Crossroad A-Bomb, notes for his book on the alien agenda, were missing. (Everything else in the apartment was still there, including gold coins, wallet with hundreds of dollars, jewelry, mineral specimens, etc)”.
5. “No coroner ever came out to his apartment after his body was found (against Oregon Law) – and a police investigation never took under consideration that items were missing from his apartment – it was considered a suicide, plain and simple”.
Schneider’s death is still a mystery, there are reports that he committed suicide and reports that he was found tortured with piano wire around his neck. There are other reports suggesting that he had a stroke or a heart attack.
No one may ever know the truth of Schneider’s claims but there is no doubt that he was an interesting figure and that he had some very disturbing and controversial things to say.
I was the third truck of four, that were running together. We left Oakland after a concert we were touring with, headed to San Diego. At about 3am I happened to see a light shine out across in front of us maybe two miles or so ahead of us on the right, and it went out. I didn’t think much of it. I thought at first someone was shinning deer. Than I saw a beam shine downward but didn’t see anything else. The origin of the light looked to be about 100ft above the ground. Then it went out. Then you could see white marker lights as it crossed the 5 and turned north on the other side and came at us. Before it reached us it turned back and went south and crossed back over the 5 to the west and the lights all went out and I couldn’t see it anymore. The fella in the truck in front of said he saw it off the the right just sitting there hovering. I saw light shinning in my passenger side window coming at me from a little behind me. I thought it was going to slam into the side of my tractor. It came straight at me. There were three very bright white lights across the front edge ot this thing, shinning right into my side window. It came to almost a complete stop, rotated tipped up on its edge and slid over the top of my tractor, and out over the front of my windshield. When we stop later that morning, and I stopped my video cameras to go back over that segments to see if it got recorded. I didn’t think it would catch it, because the cameras are set to look down out over the hood of my truck to the road in front of me. I would estimate that craft was about 30 to 50 feet above the truck in front of me. With a high degree of certainty it would say that this thing was about 14ft at it widest point, probably close to 20ft long. My tractor is 19.5ft long and 13.4ft tall. As it came over and out into view I got a really good look at it (see drawing) the edge of this was slightly larger than the light placement on the underside. Interstate lanes are 12ft x2 plus 11ft for both shoulders, that’s a total of 35ft. This was just a little larger than a single lane. Smallest Cessna has a 32ft wing span, and crop dusters are 34ft. this was no plane. It had no visible propulsion system. It could be a new military style drone but can drones hover without propellers or a fan system? More to the point, why would the military put people on the highway at risk. I’m still baffled that there is absolutely no light flash in my cab when it came at me. Should have seen the inside of my cab light up in the video. Just another strange aspect. I would have to say my buddies where really excited over this event, trying to put it into some kind of contexts. I tried to tell them you can’t. You’ll always have this with you, wondering what it was. I told them this was the third time I’ve had events in very close proximity with aerial phenomena, and it wasn’t even the strangest, and if you tell it to people that have never experience something like this, they’ll tell you, what you saw, isn’t what you saw. When we first saw it and it crossed the 5 heading east, a couple miles ahead of us. Had it kept going straight, it just would have been a low flying airplane under 500ft. At night! The map that’s attached gives context to what interaction occurred. The circle up by the Chevron Station is roughly where we were when I first saw the light shoot out to the east.

During the dawn of Ufology in the United States, unidentified flying objects made themselves known to the leaders of the free world in 1952, buzzing over the White House, the Capitol building, and the Pentagon.
Seemingly the unknown objects were defying the very governmental agencies sworn to protect the United States from foreign powers.
Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base picked up a number of UFOs on their radar screens on July 19, 1952, beginning a wave of sightings still unexplained to this day.
These blips were objects traveling at about 100 M.P.H. but with the ability to accelerate to the unbelievable speed of 7,200 M.P.H.
The Washington National sighting was confirmed by other local radar, and then Andrews Air Force Base was contacted.
Andrews Tower, do you read? Did you have an airplane in sight west-northwest or east of your airport moving east-bound?
Andrews: No, but we just got a call from the center. We’re looking for it.
Washington: We’ve got a big target showing up on our scope. He’s just coming in on the west edge of your airport-the northwest edge of it eastbound. He’ll be passing right through the northern portion of your field on an east heading. He’s about a quarter of a mile from the northwest runway-right over the edge of your northwest runway now.
Andrews: What happened to your target now?
Washington: He’s still eastbound. He went directly over Andrews Fields and is now five miles east.
Andrews: Where did he come from?
Washington: We picked him up ourselves at about seven miles east, slightly southeast, and we have been tracking him ever since then. The Center has been tracking him farther than that.
Andrews: Was he waving his course?
Washington: Holding steady course, due east heading.
Andrews: This is Andrews. Our radar tracking says he’s got a big fat target out here northeast of Andrews. He says he’s got two more south of the field.
Washington: Yes, well the center has about four or five around the Andrews Range station. The Center is working a National Airlines – the center is working him and vectoring him around his target. He went around Andrews. He saw one of them – looks like a meteor. (Garbled)… Went by him… or something.
He said he’s got one about three miles off his right wing right now. There are so many targets around here it is hard to tell as they are not moving very fast.
Andrews: What about his altitude?
Washington: Well, must be over 8,000 feet as we don’t have him in radar any more.
Andrews Air Force Base notified the U.S. Air Force Air Defense Command. A couple of F-94 night fighters were ordered to the skies, but runway repairs held their mission up for several hours. By the time they were airborne, the mysterious objects were gone.
The fighters returned home, but soon the objects again showed up on the radar screens. For the next several hours, the fighters chased the illusive targets, but to no avail.
They were able to sight the UFOs, but lights of the unknown objects would darken as they were approached. Constant communication was kept with ground radar, and as the pilots lost sight of the UFOs, they also disappeared from ground radar. The UFOs were also separately witnessed by the crew of a B-29, and other commercial flights.
After a quiet week, the objects reappeared on July 26. After multiple radar operators confirmed the objects, the F-94s again began their search for the enigmatic lights over Washington. The results of their pursuit were identical to the week before. They could see the lights, but when they drew near, the lights would blackout.
After their fruitless journey, the planes returned home, only to hear that the objects again were being tracked by radar. One of the pilots stated his fear and frustration by air to ground radio.
“They’ve surrounded my plane, what should I do?” The phenomenal sights would bring about an Air Force press conference on July 29, with Major General John A. Samford in charge.
The official explanation was “temperature inversions,” which supposedly caused ground lights to bounce off of clouds, giving the appearance of lighted craft in the skies. The naive and trusting press accepted this explanation at first, in lieu of any other “reasonable” one.
This explanation was scoffed at, however, by Ufologists, knowing that it just did not explain what was seen by pilots and radar operators. Even Project Bluebook would also dismiss the “temperature inversion” explanation, as it later labeled the Washington sightings as “unknown.”
The radar operators offered their own reason for the rejecting the Air Force explanation. Radar controller Barnes would state, “Inversion blips are always recognized by experts, we are familiar with what weather conditions, flying birds, and [other] such things can cause on radar.
Temperature inversions on radar are typically weak returns and move at a slow ground speed. These blips were distinctly clear, reported as a very good return, solid and often traveled at unbelievable speeds.”
The Washington D. C. sightings are a solid case of UFO activity. Literally hundreds of eyewitnesses saw the objects, and photographed them. Many of these were Air Force personnel, considered as reliable. Many of them made comment of the sightings, one was a Sergeant Harrison: “I saw the … light moving from the Northeast toward the range station.
These lights did not have the characteristics of shooting stars. There were no trails and seemed to go out rather than disappear, and traveled faster than any shooting star I have ever seen.” The sightings continued throughout the month of July.

July 28, 1952
“Saucer” outran jet, pilot reveals
Investigation on in secret after chase over capital
Radar spot blips like aircraft for nearly six hours – only 1,700 feet up
By Paul Sampson, Post Reporter
Military secrecy veils an investigation of the mysterious, glowing aerial objects that showed up on radar screens in the Washington area Saturday night for the second consecutive week.
A jet pilot sent up by the Air Defense Command to investigate the objects reported he was unable to overtake the glowing lights moving near Andrews Air Force Base.
The CAA reported the objects traveled at “predominantly lower levels” – about 1700 feet. July 19.
Air Force spokesmen said yesterday only that an investigation was being made into the sighting of the objects on the radar screen in the CAA Air Route Traffic Control Center at Washington National Airport, and on two other radar screens . Methods of the investigations were classified as secret, a spoken said.
“We have no evidence they are flying saucers; conversely we have no evidence they are not flying saucers. We don’t know what they are,” a spokesman added.
The same source reported an expert from the Air Technical Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton Ohio, was here last week investigating the objects sighted July 19.
The expert has been identified as Capt. E. J. Ruppelt. Reached by telephone at his home in Dayton yesterday, Ruppelt said he could make no comment on his activity in Washington.
Capt. Ruppelt confirmed he was in Washington last week but said he had not come here to investigate the mysterious objects. He recalled he did make an investigation after hearing of the objects, but could not say what he investigated.
Another Air Force spokesman said here yesterday the Air Force is taking all steps necessary to evaluate the sightings. “The intelligence people,” this spokesman explained, “sent someone over to the control center at the time of the sightings and did whatever necessary to make the proper evaluation.
Asked whether the radar equipment might have been malfunctioning, the spokesman said, “radar, like the compass is not a perfect instrument and is subject to error.” He thought, however, the investigation would be made by persons acquainted with the problems of radar.
Two other radar screens in the area picked up the objects. An employee of the National Airport control tower said the radar scope there picked up very weak “blips” of the objects. The tower radar’s for “short range” and is not as powerful as that at the center. Radar at Andrews Air Force Base also registered the objects from about seven miles south of the base.
A traffic control center spokesman said the nature of the signals on the radar screen ruled out any possibility they were from clouds or any other “weather” disturbance.
“The returns we received from the unidentified objects were similar and analogous to targets representing aircraft in flight,” he said.
The objects, “flying saucer or what have you, appeared on the radar scope at the airport center at 9:08 PM. Varying from 4 to 12 in number, the objects appeared on the screen until 3:00 AM., when they disappeared.
At 11:25 PM., two F-94 jet fighters from Air Defense Command squadron, at New Castle Delaware, capable of 600 hundred mph speeds, took off to investigate the objects.
Airline, civil and military pilots described the objects as looking like the lit end of a cigarette or a cluster of orange and red lights.
One jet pilot observed 4 lights in the vicinity of Andrews Air Force Base, but was not able to over-take them, and they disappeared in about two minutes.
The same pilot observed a steady white light in the vicinity of Mt Vernon at 11:49 PM. The light, about 5 miles from him, faded in a minute. The lights were also observed in the Beltsville, MD., vicinity. At 1:40 AM two-other F-94 jet fighters took off and scanned the area until 2:20 AM., but did not make any sightings.
Visible two days
Although “unidentified objects” have been picked up on radar before, the incidents of the last two Saturdays are believed to be the first time the objects have been picked up on radar-while visible to the human eye.
Besides the pilots, who last Saturday saw the lights, a woman living on Mississippi Ave., told the Post she saw a very “bright light streaking across the sky towards Andrews Air Force Base about 11:45 PM. Then a second object with a tail like a comet whizzed by, and a few seconds later, a third passed in a different direction toward Suntland, she said.
Radar operators plotted the speed of “Saturday night’s visitors” at from 38 to 90 mph, but one jet pilot reported faster speeds for the light he saw.
The jet pilot reported he had no apparent “closing speed” when he attempted to reach the lights he saw near Andrews Air Force Base. That means the lights were moving at least as fast as his top speed-a maximum of 600 mph.
One person who saw the lights when they first appeared in this area did not see them last night. He is E.W. Chambers, an engineer at Radio Station WRC, who spotted the lights while working early the morning of July 20 at station’s Hyattsville tower.
Chambers said he was sorry he had seen the lights because he had been skeptical about “flying saucers” before. Now he said, he sort of “wonders” and worries about the whole thing.
Leon Davidson, 804 South Irving St. Arlington, a chemical engineer who made an exhaustive study of “flying saucers” as a hobby, said yesterday reports of saucers in the East, have been relatively rare.
Davidson has studied the official report on the saucers, including some of the secret portions never made public, and analyzed all the data in the report.
Davidson, whose study of saucers is impressively detailed and scientific, said he believes the lights are American “aviation products” – probably “circular flying wings,” using new type jet engines that permit rapid acceleration and relatively low speeds. He believes they are either “new fighter,” guided missiles or piloted guided missiles.
He cited some of the recent jet fighters, including the Navy’s new “F-4-D, which has a radical “bat-wing,” as examples of what the objects might resemble.
Davidson thinks the fact that the lights have been seen in this area indicates the authorities may be ready to disclose the “new aircraft” in the near future. Previously, most of the “verified saucers” have been seen over sparsely inhabited areas, Davidson explained, and now, when they appear here, it may indicate that “secrecy” is not so important any more.
KENS NOTE: I feel this is the biggest smoking gun available for alien craft presence on earth. This case was debunked by the Air Force and apparently it was lies on top of lies. This case make Roswell look like small potatoes.
August 1, 1952 -The United States Coast Guard released a photograph of an unidentified aerial phenomena. The photograph was taken by a 21-year-old Coast Guard photographer on 16 July, at the Salem Coast Guard Air Station.
Coast Guard Officer Shell R. Alpert snapped the photograph of what appears to be four UFOs. The UFOs were also witnessed by Coastguardsman Thomas Flaherty. This photograph has become one of the most recognized pictures in Ufology.

Mission….The air station’s missions included search and rescue, law enforcement, counting migratory waterfowl for the U.S. Biological Survey, and assisting icebound islands by delivering provisions. During World War IIanti-submarine patrols were also conducted from the air station.
One of the most controversial radar visual reports of the fifties occurred on August 31st, 1954. The story leaked out in December, 1954, and made front page headlines.
The official navy file on the event remained classified until the Directorate of Naval Intelligence released a copy upon my request in 1982.
During his 1973 visit to Australia, Dr. Hynek was able to interview the pilot involved in this famous incident, which became known as the “Sea Fury” encounter.
Dr. Hynek made his notes on this interview available to me during my 1984 visit to the Chicago headquarters of his organisation, the Centre for UFO Studies (CUFOS). I, in turn, provided Dr. Hynek with a copy of the official file on the incident.
Lieutenant J.A. O’Farrell was returning to Royal Australian Navy Air Station Nowra after a night cross country in a Sea Fury aircraft. After contacting Nowra at about 1910 hours, O’Farrell saw a very bright light closing fast at one o’clock.
It crossed in front of his aircraft taking up position on his port beam, where it appeared to orbit.
A second and similar light was observed at nine o’clock. It passed about a mile in from of the Sea Fury and then turned in the position where the first light was observed.
According to O’Farrell, the apparent crossing speeds of the lights were the fastest he had ever encountered. He had been flying at 220 knots. O’Farrell contacted Nowra who in turn confirmed that they had two radar “paints” in company with him.
The radar operator, Petty Officer Keith Jessop, confirmed the presence of 2 objects near the Sea Fury on the G.C.I. remote display.
The two lights reformed at nine o’clock and then disappeared on a north easterly heading. O’Farrell could only make out “a vague shape with the white light situated centrally on top.”
The Directorate of Naval Intelligence at the time wrote that O’Farrell was “an entirely credible witness” and that he “was visibly ‘shaken’ by his experience, but remains adamant that he saw these objects”
In a recent interview, “Shamus” O’Farrell described the incident:
“I said, “Nowra, this is 921. Do you have me on radar?” “And a few seconds later they came back and said, “Affirmative 921. We have you coming in from the west. We have another two contacts as well. Which one are you.” “I said, “I think I’m the central one.”
And so they said, “Do a 180…for identification.” So I did a quick 180 and then continued on around and made it a 360 back to where I was going.
“They said, “Yes, we’ve got you. You’re the centre aircraft.” I said that’s correct. They then said to me, “Who are the other two aircraft,” and I said, “I don’t know. I was hoping you would tell me, because I didn’t think there was anyone up here. “They said, “Well there shouldn’t be, and they certainly shouldn’t be that close to you.”
“So the conversation went on like this and I was very pleased to be talking to somebody because it gave me a lot of reassurance. With that these two aircraft came in quite close to me and I could really see the dark mass and that they were quite big, but I couldn’t make out any other lights or any other form of an aircraft. With that they took off and headed off to the north east at great speed.
“I was about to press the button and tell them at Nowra that the two aircraft were departing when Nowra called me up and said, “The other two aircraft appear to be departing at high speed to the north east. Is that correct?” and I said, “Yes!”. And they said, “Roger, we’ll see if we can track them.”
They tracked them for a while and then lost them. “I came in and landed at 7.30 (1930) and when I got there there were quite a few people waiting for me. I thought it was a bit strange and so they came over, and they said, “You sure you had aircraft out there!” and I said yes.
The Surgeon Commander came over and spoke to me. He said did I feel sick, or was I upset. I said no. He ran his hand over my head to see whether I had any bumps. He had a look at me and decided I was okay. So then he said, “Perhaps you’d like to come to the sick bay after you’ve changed and we’ll do an examination.”
So after I was finished I went up to sick bay and he gave me a more thorough medical, and said, no, I appeared to be alright. I found out later, that at the same time, they checked to make sure I hadn’t been drinking before I took off and all that sort of thing.”
During this interview, Dr. Hynek’s involvement came up:
“This man (Hynek) – a professor – had made a study of thousands of sightings all around the world and he had decided my sighting was one of those that he had not been able to explain away by other means.
Any way I had a talk with him. He was a very interesting chap and he made the comment that there were about 13 or 15, I don’t remember, sightings that he was aware of over the years that were like mine and could not be explained away. The interesting thing he said was that all of these sightings had been made by professional people in aviation.
By that he meant they were military pilots, military air crew, civil aviation operators, air traffic controllers, and the like, or airline pilots. These were the ones he was now (1973) going around meeting the people themselves and investigating.
All the others he had written off and had been able to explain down to some other phenomena. It came to the point where he said, “Your sighting cannot be explained away.” And he left it at that. To this day I wouldn’t know where it came from or where it went.”
I have had the opportunity to talk extensively with Shamus O’Farrell. I was particularly interested in how the interview with Dr. Hynek in 1973 came about:
“It was done through Sir Arthur Tange, who was secretary of the Department of Defence at the time. Hynek contacted him direct… Sir Arthur Tange contacted me and said Hynek was coming out. He had written to him, through the US Embassy, to set up a meeting.
And the next thing I knew I had a telephone call one day from Sir Arthur Tange saying that Hynek was coming and he would like me to met him. I said, well, I haven’t got all the facts, there all a bit hazy. So he sent me the two Defence Department files over to read, to refresh it all.”
Bill Chalker: “That seems to indicate a high level of interest in Hynek’s visit at the time?”
“Yes, well, I don’t think so. All that happened was that it was more of a courtesy because he was a very important guy, Hynek, and they wanted to show him the courtesies etc. As far as Defence was concern it was dead and forgotten but they had not got rid of the files. They kept them.
Normally when files like that are written off they are either decided they’ll put them in Archives or dispose of them and destroy them. But they had done neither. They had remained in the JIO. They’d kept them. I don’t know what they had in mind about it, I never questioned it. I just used them as a means to refresh my memory.
“Later the guy who became the chief Defence scientist, John Farrands, was very interested in it too, and he had done a lot of early investigations in most of the reports when he was chief defence scientist and in the period just before he became chief defence scientist. He had a talk with me.
I was a friend of his. I used to meet with him at lunch. He went over it in great detail. He knew it all. He agreed it was something that couldn’t be refuted. No matter how hard they tried, and they tried very hard to knock it all back. They checked everything from medical, down to when was the last time I had had a drink…”
Bill Chalker: “That must have been a bit of a concern to you?”
“Well, I wanted to hush it all up. That sort of investigation made me look a bit of a fool. I was worried it wasn’t going to do my career any good. “(Apart from the radar witness) it locked in a sighting over the NDB (non directional beacon) at Narulan, at the same time. There happened to be a guy working on the NDB.
It was down at the time.
He had gone to repair it. He happened to look up at the time because he saw these lights fly overhead. Also the air traffice control officer in the tower at Mascot saw them approaching him. “It was all investigated by the then RAAF guy who did it and later it was also investigated by the Joint Intelligence Bureau.”
In 1993 I assisted The Extraordinary television programme with a recreation of the Sea Fury incident. Shamus O’Farrell, Keith Jessop and I were interviewed on the show. The case stands as one of the best unexplained radar visual UFO cases on record in Australia. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On May 31 I was watching the sunset and saw two lights crossing the Northern Plains Inn. Then shortly thereafter a swarm chasing it and as they the two objects change direction the swarm followed after. This is an interesting video, but I wish we had more information. I don’t believe I have ever seen that many objects moving that fast. Any ideas? SEE WHOLE VIDEO HERE https://youtu.be/k3a-vQcYDRU
KENS NOTE: MUFON thinks it may be jets or commercial drones…..what ?????
A heat wave from a flying saucer! A Sci-fi movie scenario? well, not really. The following account still stands as one of the best “physical trace” cases in UFO lore. The United States Air Force certainly took it seriously, and so should we.
Scoutmaster, D.S. “Sonny” DesVergers of West Palm Beach, Florida was driving three scouts home on the night in question. He turned off the coastal highway and down an inland blacktop to go where one of the boys lived.
After traveling about ten miles inland he noticed a bright light in the palmetto thickets.
At first he passed by it, but then stopped down the road and turned the car around to go back. He hesitated in doing this, but could not help feeling that the light might have been a fire, perhaps indicating a crashed airplane.
DesVergers stopped the car, and got out to proceed to the scene of the bright lights. The scouts objected, afraid to be alone in the darkness, but the Scoutmaster headed toward the thick brush not far from the road. Nearby were the swamps, full of snakes, alligators, and who knows what other deadly creatures. About 50 yards or so from the road, Des Verges disappeared into the waist-high thicket. As he did, the first thing he noticed was a terrible odor.
Using his machete to clear his way with one hand, his other held his flashlight to show the way through the darkness. He carried a second flashlight on his person. The boys, waiting in the car, could clearly see the beam of their Scoutmaster’s flashlight through the brush.
Knowing he was being tracked by his flashlight, he shined it up into the canopy of some of the trees as he proceeded toward the unknown source of the lights that had caused him to stop on the road.
As he reached an opening in the brush, he paused momentarily to signal back to the waiting boys. As he did, he was suddenly overcome by an intensely humid heat. He glanced up into the clear night sky to get his bearings, but to his surprise, the many stars he had seen only a few moments ago were gone directly above him. Something else was blocking the view.
It took a moment for his eyes to adjust to a large, oval object which was hovering about 30 feet above him. As he slowly moved away from the frightening sight, he shined his flashlight toward the object. He could now make out the concave bottom of a smooth, round craft with a dome on top.
He continued to slowly move back from the object until he heard a sound which froze him in his tracks. The sound he heard was a large metal door closing. He now found himself surrounded by a red mist. He then lost consciousness.
The three boys, Bobby Ruffing, Chuck Stevens, and David Rowan could see their role model surround by what they could best describe as a “big red ball of fire.” Frightened, they left the car, and ran as fast as they could down the road to a house. Finding a farmer, they told him what they had seen. The farmer quickly called the State Police who soon arrived at the scene. Deputy sheriff Mott Partin picked the boys up and drove back to the car.
As they arrived, they saw DesVergers racing from the wooded area. Partin said that DesVergers was more scared than anyone he had ever seen.
The other officers who accompanied Partin ran into the area vacated by the frightened Scoutmaster, finding one of his flashlights still burning. They also noticed that the grass was flattened near the flashlight. The master’s second flashlight would never be found.
Arriving at Police headquarters, the officers noticed that DesVergers’ hands, arms, face, and cap were all burned. Although the officers were doubtful of the red mist account, they believed the rest of the Scoutmaster’s account enough to call the Air Force.
Edward J Ruppelt was heading the Air Force’s Project Bluebook at the time, and was impressed enough to take an investigative group to Florida to question DesVerges. He was accompanied by Second Lietenant Robert M. Olsson, and two captains, Hoey and Davis. Ruppelt would interview DesVergers several times, and remarked that the Scoutmaster remembered details very well, and did not respond in a rehearsed manner.
He felt that DesVergers was telling the truth.
An Air Force surgeon did an examination on DesVergers and determined that his wounds were indicative of mild sunburn. There were singed hairs, burns on his face and arms, and also his nostrils showed signs of being burned by a “flash heat source.” At the scene of the event, Ruppelt could find nothing to invalidate the Scoutmaster’s account.
Although there were no apparent signs of scorched earth or grass, later it was revealed after tests at Dayton, Ohio that the roots of the samples of grass taken at the scene were charred. Also, DesVergers’ cap showed signs of being damaged by “sparks of some kind.”
The three boys confirmed that the cap had not been burned earlier in the day. After interviewing the three boys, Ruppelt was convinced that they too were being truthful. DesVergers’ story stands today as a documented physical trace account of a UFO encounter. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
There have been many reports of falls of angel hair around the world. The most reported incidence occurred in Oloron, France, in 1952.
Many witnesses reported seeing over 30 red, spherical UFOs flying overhead, along with what local school superintendent Jean-Yves Prigent described as “a narrow cylinder, apparently inclined at a 45-degree angle… slowly moving in a straight line toward the southwest…
A sort of plume of white smoke was escaping from its upper end.”
From these craft came a white, hairlike substance, which covered telephone wires, tree branches and the roofs.
When people rolled the hairs into into a ball, it turned into a gelatinous substance and vanished. One man claimed to have been trapped by the material. On freeing himself, it rose back into air.
Ten days later, these events were repeated in Gaillac, also in France.
More Angel Hair Occurrences
On October 27, 1954, Gennaro Lucetti and Pietro Lastrucci stood on the balcony of a hotel in St. Mark’s Square in Venice and saw two “shining spindles” flying across the sky leaving a trail of the angel hair.
In the Portuguese city of Évora in November 2, 1959, two disc-shaped objects were seen over the town, and angel hair was collected and analyzed by microscope by a local school director, and later by armed forces technicians and scientists of the University of Lisbon.
Conclusions were not possible although it was formed, apparently, by a small organism featuring 10 ‘arms’ stretching from a central core.
It was advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind.
A fall of angel hair in Florida in 1957 was witnessed by Craig Philips (later director of America’s national aquarium), who collected samples. however, these disappeared before he could reach a laboratory.
On February 10, 1978, a large number of fibers fell from the sky for a period of two hours near Samaru, New Zealand.
I am a truck driver. I was heading from Cleveland to Columbus Ohio which is a normal run for me. Everything happened right in front of me so I was able to see everything perfect. I noticed a few planes crossing paths in front of me. I also noticed something weird to my left was a star cluster with TONS of stars and some stars were moving in circles among the other stars. As I was weirded out by that I called my buddy who was parked nearby at a truck stop to witness what I was seeing. As weird as it sounds he seen it too. What caught my eye was when one flying object crossed from left to right in the sky in front of me and all the sudden stopped by the moon and shot a green light halfway down the sky, in a second of time, then disappeared. Craziest sh*t I’ve ever seen!!! After that incident I had been crazy fascinated by UFO’s and aliens so I eventually studied like insanity about all of it, now I have knowledge and “magical powers” to make such activities happen using my mind. After that incident as well I’ve seen more clear visuals and encounters that are EXACTLY said or described by videos documents people and even like a lot I have watched on the show. Why me ? I’m wishing to actually make a living with my stories and also continue to expertise this phenomenon!!! NOTE: The above image is from another UFO case file.
Time 05:24 LT, 100 mi. south of Louisiana coast Duration 10 mn Coordinates 20°18N / 92°W
On December 6, 1952 the crew (three men) of a USAF B-29 was flying over the Gulf of Mexico just before dawn when several unidentified targets appeared on the bomber radar’s scopes.
The targets maneuvered around the bomber at speeds at 5240 mph. The crew members had visual contact with the objects as they streaked past their aircraft.
After several minutes of maneuvering around the B-29, the five objects, still moving over 5000 mph, merged with a larger object which appeared on radar as a huge blip and began to accelerate and flashed across the three radar scopes at a speed computed to be over 9000 mph.
Statement of 1st Lt Norman Karas (USAF Blue Book record) : ” On 6 December 1952, while flying over the Gulf of Mexico towards Galveston, Texas, the flight engineer finished transferring fuel and I then turned on my radar set. I noticed an unidentified target approaching our aircraft at terrific rate odf speed.
I timed it as best as I could with my stopwatch over a known distance and the instructor flight engineer computed the speed at 5,240 mph. I alerted the entire crew to look for the object visually and some flashes of light were noticed. The closest the objects came were approximately 20 miles.
I saw about 20 objects in all, sometimes as much as two and three on the scope at one time. I re-calibrated the set and there was no change. The object was small and possibly round …….”.
“I also noticed a large return come up to within 40 miles of our tail from behind, and then disappeared. To the best of my knowledge, I believe that this object was real and moved at an extremely high speed and was not a set malfunction or optical illusion”.
Statement of 1st Lt William W. Naumann (USAF Blue Book record) : “Contact was broken off at 05:35 after a group of the blips merged into a ½ inch curved arc about 30 miles from our aircraft at 320 degrees and proceeded across the scope and off it at a computed speed of over 9,000 mph.

MAY 29, 2021………DADDYHOLE PLAIN TORQUAY DEVON ENGLAND
Hi Ken : One of my friends told me that there were five cruse ships anchored just offshore at Daddyhole Plain. It’s quite rare that you get to see this many cruise ships anchored in one place together, so I was very eager to go there, and take photographs of all the ships, while looking out for any unidentified objects around them. When I got to Daddyhole Plain I immediately started taking photographs of the ships. I could see that the anchored cruise ships were Marella Explorer, Marella Discovery, Arcadia, Oosterdam and Queen Victoria. I was looking towards the Arcadia cruise ship through the viewfinder of my Nikon P900 camera, when three transparent spheres flew up out of the water and danced around right above the Arcadia cruise ship. I took a burst shot of the spheres capturing their bizarre movement. While the three spheres danced around above the ship, I noticed other spheres flying out of the water. I was completely gobsmacked by this! I have never seen so much USO / UFO Activity in one area. Surprisingly there was a lot of marine traffic about in the area at the time, and other people must have seen these spheres. Bizarrely back on the 10th of October 2020, I witnessed and photographed three similar looking spheres above the Westerdam cruise ship, and I am utterly astonished that I have photographed three more spheres above a cruise ship once again. These UFOs / USOs are very prevalent around this area, and anyone who doubts me should go to Daddyhole Plain with their camera set to burst mode and then photograph the cruise ships there, and you too will be shocked to see these sphere objects flying in and out of the water around them. It really is incredible that ever time I visit Daddyhole Plain I always seem to capture these strange objects. It really is quite compelling and worthy of further investigation. The photographs were taken at 4:32 PM on the 29th of May 2021, at Daddyhole Plain, Torquay Devon England. All the best John.

It was just a few minutes before midnight on January 28, 1953, when a message flashed into Wright-Patterson for Project Blue Book. It was sent “Operational Immediate,” so it had priority handling; I was reading it by 12:30 A.M… A pilot had chased a UFO.
The report didn’t have many details but it did sound good. It gave the pilot’s name and said that he could be reached at Moody AFB. I put in a long distance call, found the pilot, and flipped on my recorder so that I could get his story word for word.
He told me that he had been flying an F-86 on a “round robin” navigation flight from Moody AFB to Lawson AFB to Robins AFB, then back to Moody – all in Georgia. At exactly nine thirty five he was at 6,000 feet, heading toward Lawson AFB on the first leg of his flight. He remembered that he had just looked down and had seen the lights of Albany, Georgia; then he’d looked up again and seen this bright white light at “ten o’clock high.”
It was an unusually bright light, and he said that he thought this was why it was so noticeable among the stars. He flew on for a few minutes watching it as he passed over Albany. He decided that it must be an extremely bright star or another airplane – except it just didn’t look right. It had too much of a definitely circular shape.
It was a nice night to fly and he had to get in so much time anyway, so he thought he’d try to get a little closer to it. If it was an airplane, chances were he could close in and if it was a star, he should be able to climb up to 30,000 feet and the light shouldn’t change its relative position. He checked his oxygen supply, increased the r.p.m. of the engine, and started to climb.
In three or four minutes it was obvious that he was getting above the light, and he watched it; it had moved in relation to the stars. It must be an airplane then, he’d decided – an airplane so far away that he couldn’t see its red and green wing tip lights.
Since he’d gone this far, he decided that he’d get closer and make sure it was an airplane; so he dropped the nose of the F-86 and started down. As the needle on the machmeter nudged the red line, he saw that he was getting closer because the light was getting bigger, but still he couldn’t see any lights other than the one big white one. Then it wasn’t white any longer; it was changing color.
In about a two second cycle it changed from white to red, then back to white again. It went through this cycle two or three times, and then before he could realize what was going on, he told me, the light changed in shape to a perfect triangle. Then it split into two triangles, one above the other. By this time he had leveled off and wasn’t closing in any more. In a flash the whole thing was gone. He used the old standard description for a disappearing UFO: “It was just like someone turning off a light – it’s there, then it’s gone.”
I asked him what he thought he’d seen. He’d thought about flying saucers, he said, but he “just couldn’t swallow those stories.” He thought he had a case of vertigo and the more he thought about it, the surer he was that this was the answer. He’d felt pretty foolish, he told me, and he was glad that he was alone.
Up ahead he saw the sprawling lights of Fort Benning and Lawson AFB, his turning point on the flight, and he’d started to turn but then he’d checked his fuel. The climb had used up quite a bit, so he changed his mind about going to Robins AFB and started straight back to Moody.
He called in to the ground station to change his flight plan, but before he could say anything the ground radio operator asked him if he’d seen a mysterious light.
Well – he’d seen a light.
Then the ground operator proceeded to tell him that the UFO chase had been watched on radar. First the radar had the UFO target on the scope, and it was a UFO because it was traveling much too slowly to be an airplane.
Then the radar operators saw the F-86 approach, climb, and make a shallow dive toward the UFO. At first the F-86 had closed in on the UFO, but then the UFO had speeded up just enough to maintain a comfortable lead. This went on for two or three minutes; then it had moved off the scope at a terrific speed. The radar site had tried to call him, the ground station told the F-86 pilot, but they couldn’t raise him so the message had to be relayed through the tower.
Sent in by Jeanette C.- UFO Casebook Reader
[Editor’s Note: One of the main reasons that Jeanette mentioned this older case to me was the reference to the UFO changing into a triangle shape, and then morphing into two triangle UFOs. We were both wondering, when were triangles first reported?
Although triangle reports became very prominent in the 1980s, the first early documented sightings of triangles were during the “Operation Mainbrace” Sightings of 1952. There could well be reports earlier, and if anyone has that information, send it along.] NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I worked as a Child Care Counselor at The New Mexico School for the Deaf in Santa Fe. I was driving in from Galisteo where I lived at the time, to begin my shift at 2:30pm. It was a bright, sunny, typical New Mexico afternoon. I was driving west on I-25 (I-25 generally is north/south but this section, due to mountains, orients east/west}. I was moving at approximately 60 mph. Sparse traffic. No cars nearby on my side of the freeway. The other (eastbound lanes) had 1 or 2 cars. The two sides of the freeway here are divided by a median of about 100 feet with scrub brush, a few junipers and grass. What I first noticed was a New Mexico Air National Guard fighter jet flying perpendicular to my path at such a low altitude (100 feet or less!) that I assumed it was going to crash to my left into the low rounded hills and scattered homes beyond the eastbound lanes. Instead, the jet rotated on its axis and pointed one wing skyward and the other towards the ground.in order to negotiate the narrow gap between two rounded hills. At this point I noticed a cigar shaped silver craft drifting slowly upward. In response to the jet it then suddenly accelerated on a very steep, upward and leftward curving trajectory. IT MOVED LIKE A FLAT STONE SKIPPING OVER THE TOP OF A CALM POND.. It was gone in a second! At that point a second fighter jet flew through the gap in the hills following the first jet. The two jets left black exhaust trails behind them as they chased after it in vain.. In terms of speed the jets seemed like snails by comparison. This entire episode could not have lasted more than 7 seconds. Perhaps even less. After all, I was driving at 60 mph. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
JULY 15, 2012……..WINGHAM NEAR CANTERBURY KENT ENGLAND
On the day of this sighting, Ray was out on one of his regular walks in this remote and relatively flat landscape. There are scant few agricultural buildings and the land is extensive in farming, with wide open spaces. The weather was thick cloud to the West with a small break in the cloud to the south with the sun breaking through to the left of a main coppice of woods.
The woodland recedes abruptly and there is a clear run of vision to the horizon panning from South West to South for about a mile and a half, from which a wind mill marks the start of a new line of trees.
In Ray’s account of his sighting whilst walking his dog, he states the following:
“I noticed something moving that I thought was a flight of geese. It caught my eye because right now, this is not happening around here-it did not fit.”“I kept my eye on it and realiszed that it was going too fast to be birds. Then I realized I was not looking at something a few hundred meters away – this thing passed into a lower density area of a cloud (heavy rain and storm clouds – c/n?) that was maybe 5 miles away, maybe more due to the elevation, I’m not sure… As it did this I saw that it was a solid object – dark grey/black. It was pointed at the front (hence me thinking I was viewing geese from my ground angle) and square like to the back, it had about five sides, like a classic diamond icon.
It was at about 22-25 degrees vertical, and I tracked it with my eye through about 80 degrees horizontal before it passed out of sight behind the trees of a small coppice. I guess it was about 4 or 5 seconds I was watching it for – I was so agog that I couldn’t say anything, my son was with me but playing with the dog, and forget about trying to film it – it was gone! I tried to explain it away, said maybe it was a shadow of something on the clouds, but there was absolutely no way I can think of to explain what I saw, and I have seen most kinds of aircraft in flight (I was obsessed with the things as a kid/lived next to a military and commercial airport…). When I got back to my parents’ house I told my mother what I had seen, she said she’s been seeing weird stuff in the sky all week, she’s even heard them – they make a buzzing/ringing noise apparently. Has anyone else seen anything?”
I met Ray on location and we got the positioning of the sighting photographed and filmed in transit with a live pan shot. It was reviewed that the time was closer to between ten to fifteen seconds, when we replayed the sighting footage and realized that the sighting from beginning to end was longer than the five seconds that Ray recalled, from his realization that he was not observing geese. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Traveling east on Route 33 at roughly 1:45am between Buckhannon and Weston West Virginia, my Wife and I observed what can only be described as three large spheres inside of a rectangle. It hovered about 30-50 feet above one of the hilltops on the left(South) side of the highway. The hilltops through there are about 100-400 feet higher than the highway. We got an excellent view of it for roughly 1-2 minutes. I was driving, so I was only seeing it for a few seconds at a time. I had just looked back at the road and that’s when my wife said “It just disappeared!” When I looked back in the sky where it was, it was ,in fact, gone. I had only taken my eyes off of it for a few seconds to look at the road. When we arrived back at our house in Harrison county at around 2:15am my brother texted me to ask if I had made it home ok. To which I replied yes, but that we had basically seen a UFO. My brother was absolutely floored because he and his wife had just seen the same object but they witnessed it roughly 2 miles to the west on Rt. 33 from where we witnessed it. They passed through that same area 30-45 minutes before we passed through. The object did not appear to move at all when we observed it. If it was moving it was moving at about 2-4 miles per hour.

Famed researcher Raymond Fowler first broke the details of this event of May 20, 1953 in 1973, although it was known to UFO investigator Richard Hall as early as 1964. Fowler stated that his information came from engineer “Fritz Werner,” later identified as Arthur G. Stancil.
Stancil graduated from Ohio University in 1949 and was first employed by Air Material Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio as a mechanical engineer on testing Air Force aircraft engines.
Dr. Eric Wang, who was suspected of leading a reverse engineering team on alien craft, headed the Installations Division within the Office of Special Studies where Arthur worked.
Stancil signed a legal affidavit vouching to the honesty of his testimony, which was released by Ray Fowler in UFO Magazine, April 1976.
He was working for a company that had a government contract at a nuclear site in Nevada. He was summoned by his boss on 5-21-53, and sent on a “secret” assignment.
After being flown to Phoenix, Arizona, he was placed on a bus with blacked out windows, and taken to a point some four hours drive northwest of the city of Phoenix proper. The location was supposedly near the city of Kingman, Arizona.
The bus was full of passengers, none of whom Stancil knew, and would not know, as they were told not to communicate with each other. Arriving at their secret destination, two military light-alls illuminated a surreal scene in the late night, pre-dawn skies of the desert. The engineer was amazed to see a disc-shaped craft embedded into the sand.
Stancil estimated its diameter to be about 30 feet. Military personnel surrounded the aluminum-like craft, which was brought down by either an internal explosion, or was hit by military rockets, Stancil surmised. The wound was easily seen, a gaping hole in its side.
Stancil’s duty was to calculate the speed of the craft, a task he quickly discharged. Afterwards, the tense atmosphere of the group of investigators began to loosen some, and he began to glean details from some of the other personnel assigned to this “off the record” mission. He was told of a small cabin inside the craft, and very small chairs.
He did not get to look into the unknown craft himself. He was taken back when he peeked into a nearby medical tent.
Inside was the small body of a “creature,” about 4 foot tall. He asserts that the alien was wearing a type of skull cap, and a silver suit. The suit seemed to be seamless. Soon the investigation was called to a halt, and the members summoned to leave the area.
Back on the bus, all of the members of the assignment were ordered to sign the “official secrets” act, and were warned not to discuss what they had seen with anyone. Before bringing the crash story to other UFO groups, Fowler did a thorough background check on Stancil, and was satisfied to his authenticity, and personal integrity.
Fowler also was persuaded beyond doubt as to the ability of Stancil to do his job, as he came forward with great knowledge of his field and occupation.
There was additional confirmation to the validity of the Arizona crash. Personnel at Wright Patterson AFB claimed to have been witness to the delivery from a “crash site” in Arizona.
These witnesses claimed to have seen “three small bodies packed in dry ice.” The beings were reported as being about 4 foot tall, with large heads, and brownish skin color.
The time of the delivery perfectly coincided with the events put forth by Stancil. Unfortunately, the military personnel could not make their names public. Fowler maintains that several other witnesses have come forward in the years following the incident, but the lack of other facts, and other testimony leave the case lacking somewhat.
Possibly one day more evidence will be revealed on this alleged UFO crash in the desert of Arizona. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo Friday that the United States intelligence and military apparatus has been monitoring Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as UFOs, engaging in action that current technology cannot explain.
The admission is stunning, as Ratcliffe is the highest level former U.S. official to disclose the possibility that advanced intelligence may exist outside our planetary system. His revelations also come on the heels of a report that will be submitted to Congress on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), anytime between now and June 1. The demand for the report was included in the COVID-19 relief and Omnibus bill, which gave the agencies 180 days to turn over their findings to congress.
“There are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” said Ratcliffe to Bartiromo.
“Some of those have been declassified. And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain,” he continued. “Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
It isn’t unexpected to hear more officials speaking out about the phenomenon, as it was just several months ago that the Pentagon released three declassified videos of unidentified shaped Tic-Tok shaped objects traveling at extraordinary speeds that were captured by Navy aircraft cameras with infrared observation capability. Those objects – captured on info-red – sometimes are caught accelerating at incredible speeds with G-forces that no human body can withstand.
Luis “Lue” Elizondo, the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs, told me Sunday that Ratcliff’s statements “further illustrates the reality of what other senior members of our Executive and Legislative Branches are already aware of, in that the UAP/UFO issue is real, relevant, and a national security interest.”
Hi Ken : I was outside in the back garden sky watching and I had my Nikon P900 camera setup on a tripod. I was watching an area of the sky that was off to the east, and I had been watching this particular part of the sky for about 15 minutes, when all of a sudden an object flew into frame, so I immediately hit the shutter button and captured the unidentified object as it flew up diagonally through that area of sky and disappeared from view. The camera was set to burst mode, so I was able to capture the object in four photographs as it passed by at speed moving very fast across the sky. This object was miles away from my position and I feel very fortunate that I was able to capture it. I looked at the photographs and I could see that the object appeared to be a yellow saucer type craft. I feel that these objects are purposely allowing me to see and capture them in my photographs. I believe this is their way of disclosing their presents to the public. The Photographs were taken at 2:04 PM on the 28th of May 2021 at Newton Abbot Devon England. All the best John.

My mother and I were making a cake and were driving into town to get eggs, it’s a 15-20 minute drive into town. We were halfway there when we noticed a bright orb of light fall from the sky from 200-300 mph. We thought it was a meteor at first, but soon after, the orb of light instantly hovered and started flying above the town of Alamosa. The orb of light flew from one side of the town to the other in an ‘S’ shape formation. We were getting closer to the town and the orb of light was getting closer to our vehicle, we could see different colored lights on the craft beyond this point and still thought it could be a drone of some kind or something. I tried taking a video of the orb flying above the town but the quality of the camera was bad and I put the phone away. Soon after this happened, were were coming to a bridge just outside of town and couldn’t see the orb anymore due to the trees. We got on the bridge and I saw the craft coming straight towards us, so I stuck my head out of the window. I first noticed the lights and shape of the craft, it was a triangle with three lights, each on the tips. The light on the tip of the triangle was white, and on the base, one of them was teal, and the other was red. I tried concentrating on the UFO itself, at one point I feel like I saw the streetlights reflection but it looked black for the most part. Also, as it was coming towards us, it was flying with the flat side first. It then turned away from the bridge and turned towards the town again, I think it flew forward with the tip of the triangle. I could still see it through the trees, it was keeping up with our speed about a block away. I was distraught about what had happened and was not paying attention to my surroundings after this. I still feel guilty for not being able to get a video or an image of the event, but feel great to be able to share it with you all. And Sorry for not reporting my sighting sooner, I did not think I would be able to. I will try to find the video I took of the orb but I can’t promise that I will find it. I have gotten requests for drawings of the event and honestly, I need to put more time into doing that, because I know I can I just haven’t gotten into it. Thank you again, NOTE: The above image is CGI.
At night driving with my dad and saw a UFO in the distance which I assumed at the time could only have been a plane. Within a second it was hovering in front of our car. It must have only been about 10 feet above us and was tilted looking at us in the front seat of the car. As we drove it followed us up the road as if it were flying backwards to observe us. The UFO itself was funnily enough your cliche UFO object. Saucer shaped and no wider than about 5 meters across. It had a chrome surface and blinding lights sequential going around the front of it. I remember saying to my dad ‘Dad dad look look at this oh my God’ and all he was doing was watching the road as the lights were so blinding in his eyes. My dad’s account of it was just blinding lights- so much so that he said he didn’t see the UFO due to being worried we were off the side of the road and into the deep gully . It must’ve followed us up the road for about 20 second before it disappeared (and when I say disappeared, I mean I didn’t see it move, it just all of a sudden wasn’t there). I then saw it flying over the hill adjacent to the road we were on about 200m away. I’ve never had anywhere to report this before and it’s probably no longer useful considering it was 1994. No internet and no mobile phones so working out where to report this was a mystery! I did however note it in my diary and make a sketch (I was 14 at the time), however when I’ve rifled through every page of that diary I can’t find the page at all, it’s just simply disappeared.

I was driving home by myself from a friend’s house on the night of April 26th 2012 around 11:00pm. It was a clear night, I had my driver’s seat window down and usually the radio on low volume and had cruise control on 50mph-per usual. I had to drive past the Piedmont Airport in Burlington NC on the stretch of highway I was on to reach the interstate. All and all, a 12 minute ride home. Halfway through my ride home as I was looking out of the windshield and I was on a 2-lane highway with trees running both sides of the road about 20-30 feet off the ditches and trees were (best guess) 100-150 feet in the air. I then noticed something coming into my view to my right over the tree line, almost directly above me towards the top of my windshield. It was dark and big (maybe 100-150 feet wide, couldn’t quite see the top half of the ufo)…and the ufo was slowing spinning clock-wise at a relatively slow speed while moving perpendicular to my car. I noticed a few blinking off-white lights on the ufo equator. It also had a small light underneath and center of the ufo that slightly shined and reflected the bottom of the ufo. Didn’t notice any doors or windows. Was a matt-black color as the light shined dimly on it. It moved to my left at a very slow speed. This all took maybe 6-7 seconds since I first saw the big ufo to me then slowing my car down very quickly while keeping an eye on it the entire time. As my car was almost stopped, still moving some, I opened my driver side door to extend my head out of the frame of the door to see the object better. The second I laid my eyes on it with my head out of my car window. It stopped moving and rotating at the same time and ascended in a blink of an eye onto the sky. This entire experience lasted no more than 10 seconds. This ufo made no sounds, didn’t blow the trees or grass while crossing over the road. No exhaust or sonic boom- moving upwards so fast I can’t even describe it. It didn’t ascend straight up it was more like 75-85 degrees upward. After it exited my view. I was at a stop by then and I looked all around as I walked and leaned against my car to see if anyone was on the road or passing by to maybe stop them, but at the same time my heart was pounding in my chest so I sat there in my car off the road slightly until I calmed down and finished my ride home. I called my friend whose house I was leaving a few moments earlier to tell him. I think he believed me but probably not. I’ve only mentioned this story to maybe 5 people since 2012 and it’s May 27th of 2021 now. My friend reminded me of this story recently so I wanted to explain my story to other people that maybe saw the same thing near the same time that night. I haven’t seen anything since and I have always been 50/50 on this stuff. I would testify my story under oath in a court if I had to. I just wanted to share what I saw. If my sighting had lasted longer or I wasn’t driving at the time I would have pulled my cellphone out of my pocket to record what happened, even if it was a bad result or blurry or too dark. But the entire encounter with the ufo was around 8-10 seconds. I was in awe for about 7 of those seconds. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

I first heard about the sighting about two o’clock on the morning of August 11,1953, when Max Futch called me from ATIC. A few minutes before, a wire had come in carrying a priority just under that reserved for flashing the word the U.S. has been attacked. Max had been called over to ATIC by the OD to see the report, and he thought that I should see it. I was a little hesitant to get dressed and go out to the base, so I asked Max what he thought about the report. His classic answer will go down in UFO history, “Captain,” Max said in his slow, pure Louisiana drawl, “you know that for a year I’ve read every flying saucer report that’s come in and that I never really believed in the things.” Then he hesitated and added, so fast that I could hardly understand him but you should read this wire.” The speed with which he uttered this last statement was in itself enough to convince me. When Max talked fast, something was important.
A half hour later I was at ATIC – just in time to get a call from the Pentagon. Someone else had gotten out of bed to read his copy of the wire.
I used the emergency orders that I always kept in my desk and caught the first airliner out of Dayton to Rapid City, South Dakota. I didn’t call the 4602nd because I wanted to investigate this one personally. I talked to everyone involved in the incident and pieced together an amazing story.
Shortly after dark on the night of twelfth, the Air Defense Command radar stationat Ellsworth AFB, just east of Rapid City, had received a call from the local Ground Observer Corps filter center. A lady spotter at Black Hawk, about 10 miles west of Ellsworth, had reported an extremely bright light low on the horizon, off to the northeast. The radar had been scanning an area to the west, working a jet fighter in some practice patrols, but when they got the report they moved the sector scan to the northeast quadrant There was a target exactly where the lady repored the light to be. The warrant officer who was the duty controller for the night, told me that he’d studied the target for several minutes. He knew how weather could affect radar but this target was well defined, solid, and bnght.” It seemed to be moving, but very slowly. He called for an altitude reading, and the man on the height-finding radar checked his scope. He also had the target – it was at 16.000 feet.
The warrant officer picked up the phone and asked the filter center to connect him with the spotter. They did, and the two people compared notes on the UFO’s position for several minutes. But right in the middle of a sentence the lady suddenly stopped and excitedly said, “It’s starting to move – it’s moving southwest toward Rapid.”
The controller looked down at his scope and the target was beginning to pick up speed and move southwest. He yelled at two of his men to run outside and take a look. In a second or two one of them shouted back that they could both see a large bluish-white light moving toward Rapid City. The controller looked down at his scope, the target was moving toward Rapid City. As all three parties watched the light and kept up a steady cross conversation of the description, the UFO swiftly made a wide sweep around Rapid City and returned to its original position in the sky.
A master sergeant who had seen and heard the happenings told me that in all his years of duty – combat radar operations in both Europe and Korea – he’d never been so completely awedby anything. When the warrant officer had yelled down at him and asked him what he thought they should do, he’d just stood there. “After all,” he told me, “what in hell couldf we do – they’re bigger than all of us.”
But the warrant officer did do something. He called to the F-84 pilot he had on combat air patrol west of the base and told him to get ready for an intercept. He brought the pilot around south of the base and gave him a course correction that would take him right into the light. which was still at 16.000 feet. By this time the pilot had it spotted. He made the turn, and when he closed to within about 3 miles of the target, it began to move. The controller saw it begin to move, the spotter saw it begin to move and the pilot saw it begin to move – all at the same time there was now no doubt that all of them were watching the same object.
Once it began to move, the UFO picked up speed fast and started to climb, heading north, but the F-84 was right on its tail. The pilot would notice that the light was getting brighter,and he’d call the controller to tell him about it. But the controller’s answer would always be the same, “Roger, we can see it on the scope.”
There was always a limit as to how near the jet could get, however. The controller told me that it was just as if the UFO had some kind of an automatic warning radar linked to its power supply. When something got too close to it, it would automatically pick up speed and pull away. The separation distance always remained about 3 miles.
The chase continued on north out of sight of the lights of Rapid Cty and the base – into some very black night.
When the UFO and the F-84 got about 120 miles to the north, the pilot checked his fuel; he had to come back. And when I talked to him, be said he was damn glad that he was running out of fuel because being out over some mighty desolate country alone with a UFO can cause some worry.
Both the UFO and the F-84 had gone off the scope, but in a few minutes the jet was back on, heading for home. Then 10 or 15 miles behind it was the UFO target also coming back.
While the UFO and the F-84 were returning to the base – the F-84 was planning to land – the controller received a call from the jet interceptor squadron on the base. The alert pilots at the squadron had heard the conversations on their radio and didn’t believe it. “Who’s nuts up there?” was the comment that passed over the wire from the pilots to the radar people. There was an F-84 on the line ready to scramble, the man on the phone said, and one of the pilots, a World War II and Korean veteran, wanted to go up and see a flying saucer. The controller said, “OK, go.”
In a minute or two the F-84 was airborne and the controller was working him toward the light. The pilot saw it right away and closed in. Again the light began to clirnb out, this time more toward the northeast. The pilot also began to climb, and before long the light, which at first had been about 30 degrees above his horizontal line of sight, was now below him. He nosed the ’84 down to pick up speed, but it was the same old story – as soon as he’d get within 3 miles of the UFO, it would put on a burst of speed and stay out ahead.
Even though the pilot could see the light and hear the ground controller telling him that he was above it, and alternately gaining on it or dropping back, he still couldn’t believe it – there must be a simple explanation He turned off all of his lights – it wasn’t a reflection from any of the airplane’s lights because there it was. A reflection from a ground light, maybe. He rolled the airplane – the position of the light didn’t change. A star – he picked out three bright stars near the light and watched carefully. The UFO moved in relation to the three stars. Well, he thought to himself, if it’s a real object out there, my radar should pick it up too; so he flipped on his radar-ranging gunsight. In a few seconds the red light on his sight blinked on – something real and solid was in front of him. Then he was scared. When I talked to him, he readily admitted that he’d been scared. He’d met MD 109’s, FW 190’s and ME 262’s over Germany and he’d met MIG-15’s over Korea but the large, bright, bluish-white light had scared – he asked the controller if he could break off the intercept
This time the light didn’t corne back.
What he UFO went off the scope it was headed toward Fargo, North Dakota, so the controller called the Fargo filter center. “Had they had any reports of unidentified lights?” he asked. They hadn’t. But in a few minutes a call came back. Spotter posts on a southwest- northeast line a few miles west of Fargo had reported a fast-moving, bright bluish-white light. This was an unknown – the best.. The sighting was thoroughly investigated, and I could devote pages of detail on how we looked into every facet of the incident; but it will suffice to say that in every facet we looked into we saw nothing. Nothing but a big question mark asking what was it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.

I saw an alien hitch a ride on the Space Shuttle,’ says NASA veteran
A veteran NASA employee says he saw a nine-foot-tall alien hitch a ride on the space shuttle – and watched the event when it thought no one was looking. UFO sites have seized on this as CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE that there is a vast, global conspiracy where our leaders are in league with aliens.
Others are less sure.
Clark C. McClelland makes the claim in a video recently unearthed by paranormal news site Inquisitr. He claims to have worked at NASA for 35 years, including work on the Apollo missions – and in his favour, no one has stepped forward to say he didn’t.
There’s also a picture of him actually ON the Space Shuttle, which is conclusive enough for the UFO sites. McClelland says he was monitoring a Space Shuttle mission from Kennedy Space Centre when he saw something he wasn’t meant to – namely a gangly, slender alien chatting away with two astronauts in the Space Shuttle’s payload bay. He also saw an alien ship ‘parked’ nearby.
Disclaimer: many people think McLelland is nuts.
Second disclaimer: UFO fans believe, of course, that this first disclaimer is disinformation, spread by the Men in Black.
McLelland says, ‘I know an ET and Alien craft when I see them. ‘Aliens are here on Earth, they walk among us. They may have been implanted into our various Earth governments. His website, entitled Stargate Chronicles, is, shall we say, an interesting read. The video below has garnered over 324 thousand views. Check it out.
These photos are from my fathers journals and I thought I would send them to you. Please feel free to use them, I hope you find them very interesting? I certainly do.
Firstly let me say that my father had no connection, involvement or anything to do with these photos or what apparently went on to cause such freakish looking entities.
My father and his team had many, many connections and sources of information, my father explained it like their connections been very similar to the deep throat character in the TV show the X files, only he and his team knew lots of deep throats.
If anything happened that was connected to UFOS, aliens, the paranormal or anything considered unexplained or just plain weird, my dad and his team certainly heard about it one way or another.
One day he and his team had a meeting with a trusted contact of theirs. Basically they were given these photographs and told that a team of top secret US government scientists had conducted strange and bizarre tests and experiments on animals.
Apparently this was conducted at a top secret government ranch in the early 1970’s. My dad was told that it basically involved extraterrestrials and UFOS, the scientists and the US military to some degree.
They were told it was some strange and bizarre experimental deep black project that involved genetics, experimental extraterrestrial DNA, extraterrestrial genes, animal genes, animal DNA, extraterrestrial chromosomes, cells, embryos, chemicals, human and animal diseases, extraterrestrial/animal/human viruses and computers and it was a bunch of top secret scientists playing god and it was basically a deep black program that went completely wrong and it was abandoned several years after it first started.
My dad and his team were given the photos and the basic facts and simply told never to mention it, so they didn’t, they were also told that several people who were involved in the program died from “unknown complications”.
I spoke to my dad about this when he was alive and he said it was a very bizarre case, he and his team weren’t even sure what to make of it, they weren’t even sure whether it was real or fake? But like my dad said, they are genuine and real 35mm photos and the monstrosities that they show sure look very real and biologic and that would be extremely difficult to fake back in the early 1970’s.
Plus he said that they rarely got bogus information. He told me he had the photos looked at and examined by a photo expert and the guy said that the photos are real and do show actual objects that haven’t been superimposed, he added that everything looks completely right and genuine, including perspective, lighting and shadows.
Dad said all he can say is that whatever went on and what the photos show is simply mind boggling and completely unethical. The contact told them that the entities only lived for a very short period of time and then died, after which time they were incinerated.
I asked my dad what he genuinely thought about the photos and what he was told? He just said that some things are just best left alone, however, he and his team did believe that whatever these photos show, it is certainly possible that what went on at that top secret US government ranch back in the early 1970’s is in some way connected to the animal mutilation phenomenon, a world wide unexplained phenomenon for which no one has ever been caught for, or arrested or charged with and sadly still continues to this day.
I have to say they are probably among the weirdest photos I have ever seen, very strange and very bizarre, shocking and upsetting and that’s how my dad and his team felt too.
There isn’t really anything else I can add to what I have already mentioned above, as my dad just did what he was told and simply filed the photos away and just forgot about it and never once pursued it or looked into it any any further. My dad said that it wouldn’t surprise him if what they were told is true, as he heard and seen many strange things himself in his career.
Anyway I found an envelope with 4 more photos inside, on the front of the envelope was written in black ink VTHTJD-Ranch 2000, I have no idea what that could mean?
Kelly Johnson was known as one of the world’s leading aircraft designers. He was in charge of designing the U-2 spy plane for the CIA.
On December 16, 1953, a Lockhead WV2 aircraft was being flown by one of Johnson’s test crews over Long Beach California, at the same time that Johnson and his wife were on the ground in Agoura, California.
Johnson, his wife, and the flight crew all spotted a UFO at almost the same time. Because the plane and Johnson’s location were both known, the location of the unknown object could be triangulated exactly.
The object spotted by the observers was a 200 foot long, black craft, similar to the military’s “Flying Wing.” The UFO was seen for 6-7 minutes as it hovered over the Santa Barbara Channel.
The W-2B decided to get a closer look, and proceeded toward the UFO, which was about 15,000 feet altitude. All the while, Johnson was observing the UFO with his binoculars.
He, along with the crew in flight, saw the UFO take off at a great speed. It headed out over the Pacific. It reached 90 miles altitude as it disappeared from view.
Later, in Johnson’s official report, he stated: “I am now more convinced than ever, that such devices exist, and I have some highly technical converts in this belief.”
After looking over the case, the US Air Force concluded that Johnson, his wife, and the airplane crew had seen a lenticular cloud.
Although the government thought that Johnson could not tell the difference between a cloud and a structured, flying object, they continued to employ him for many years to come, designing some of the most secretive, cutting-edge planes of his era. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
On May 1, 2021, my friend and I were riding our motorcycles South East along Route 79 toward Warner Springs. This is a rural, desert area and we had not seen any other traffic or vehicles in the area for approximately the prior 5-6 miles, which would have been at the junction of Route 371. At 11:30 am we came over a small hill. When we reached the top we both noticed a missle-shaped object, approximately 90′ off the right side of the road. I looked to my friend beside me and asked, “do you see this?” He replied, “Yes, I do!” At that point, it was hovering approximately 6′ above the surface when we first saw it. At this same elevation, it then moved forward slowly about 4-6′, then the tail-end dipped downward, the nose came up slightly and the object ascended in this path for only a few seconds, before it pointed its nose straight up, accelerated upward and was out of sight within 10 seconds. It was a perfectly clear day with blue skies and no obstructions. This object vanished instantly before our very own eyes. There was no sound, no combustion, no dust, no lights, no disturbance of any kind. Once it was gone, there was no visible evidence it had been there. The two of us were amazed by what we had seen and the fact that we could no longer see it. It was gone within seconds, even though it was approximatly a 25′ long object. The object was the shape of a a missle or a bullet with two very small fins (approx 2-3′ high) on its rear top side. Otherwise, it was a solid looking dull grey color (not shiny, not reflective). We didn’t notice or see anything resembling windows, doors, or other openings. We discussed it briefly and continued on our way. 3 days later, I, Ron, reported the sighting to Mufon.

JUNE 29, 2016…………………..FLIGHT…1 HOUR FROM AUSTRALIA
I was on an airplane flight from USA to Melbourne, Australia. The sun was rising behind us, and it’s the early morning hours. About an hour away from Australia, I’m looking out of the window, and off in the distance, I see a metallic glint. Curious as to what it could be so far up in the sky, I keep watching. At this point in time, the object appeared to be parallel to the plane and going slower than the plane or perhaps stationary. As I’m watching, it sharply turns towards the plane and speeds up. I’m panicked because I think that it’s a missile or something that’s going to hit the plane. It appeared to be heading directly towards me. As it gets closer, I see that it’s going to go underneath the plane and not on a collision course. After the panic of potentially dying wears off, I’m oddly calm and entranced. The object is metallic, silvery with no apparent windows, and quite a bit larger than I had thought. It’s cigar or oval-shaped, with no wings or tail. It passes underneath the plane, right below my window. It was strange in that it seemed to know that I had noticed it. Afterward, I’m relieved and in a haze about what had happened. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
I was enjoying the last Ray’s if sun on my deck when I noticed a stationary object above a neighbor’s house 1 block from me. With the sun setting behind me, I was blinded by the reflective surface of the object in front of my line of view. Noticing that it stayed perfectly still while leaves on trees continued to move threw me off. I walked to the other end of my deck and starred harder at it and remember saying out loud “what are you?” Under my breath and it began to shift slightly and then disappeared. Lasted no more than 8 to 10 min. Cars drove past and I felt like I was the ONLY one who could see it. Was bizarre and I realized no one typically looks up while driving. It was no bigger than a standard medium size beach ball that was slightly flattened on the bottom. Very much like what a water balloon would look like laying on a flat surface. This was NO drone…nor did it hover like one. I had a very odd sensation it was watching me only after I got up to focus on it. If I would’ve stayed like a statue and still it might’ve passed over. That was my mistake. Shortly after this, I started having odd dreams about traveling outside my body and connecting with a living presence I failed to identify as Human. It wanted me to bind myself to it by manipulating dreams and my Hope’s as bait. Odd I know but quite real. I now suffer from extraordinary migraines and sensitivity to light ever since that day. I have moved from this area since then and continue to suffer involuntary out of body experiences both waking and asleep. Bruises and Mark’s on my body show with no knowledge of why. I’m am currently working on mental blocks to protect myself. Do not provoke these things… not worth the aftermath of physical trauma and a secret you can not share for fear of being seen as nuts. I’ve been too afraid to speak due to not wanting to set myself back with conditioning my mind and thought patterns. Due to evidence of similar persons reporting to MUFON, I feel I can safely step forward to share my experience and warning to anyone wishing to live a blissfully ignorant life. Do not engage and do not assume your thoughts are safe because they are very exposed. Guard your intentions and motives. NOTE: The above image is from another Orb case file.
The former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs, says there is “compelling” evidence the flying objects exist and have been seen over U.S. airspace.
Luis Elizondo made the comments in a CBS interview aired on Sunday, weeks ahead of a government report on UFOs being released. After being asked by Bill Whittaker on CBS’s 60 Minutes whether UFOs—or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs)—were real, Elizondo said: “Bill, I think we’re beyond that already. The gov has already stated for the record that they’re real. I’m not telling you that, the United States government is telling you that.”
UFOs, long dismissed and relegated to movies and science fiction, have begun to shed the farce label in recent years after the release of footage of high-profile U.S. military encounters with aircraft of unknown origin.
In June 2020, tucked into the 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) added language requesting that the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense create a report with “a detailed analysis of unidentified aerial phenomena data and intelligence reporting.” Two months later, the Pentagon followed suit with the new, more serious approach, creating a task force to investigate the encounters by U.S. military aircraft. The report is due to be released by next month.
In the Sunday CBS interview, Whittaker tells Elizondo that UFOs being real sounds “nutty, wacky.”
“Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities?” Elizondo said.
“Imagine a technology that can do 6-to-700 g-forces, that can fly at 13,000 miles an hour, that can evade radar and that can fly through air and water and possibly space. And oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet still can defy the natural effects of Earth’s gravity. That’s precisely what we’re seeing.
Asked by Whittaker what he says to skeptics, Elizondo said: “In some cases there are simple explanations for what people are witnessing. But there are some that, that are not. We’re not just simply jumping to a conclusion that’s saying, ‘Oh, that’s a UAP out there.'”
“We’re going through our due diligence. Is it some sort of new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed? Is it some sort of high-altitude balloon that’s conducting reconnaissance? Ultimately when you have exhausted all those what-ifs and you’re still left with the fact that this is in our airspace and it’s real, that’s when it becomes compelling, and that’s when it becomes problematic,” he added.
The former official spent two decades running military intelligence operations in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo Bay. In 2010, he took over the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. But many in the Pentagon dismissed Elizondo’s findings, and AATIP was dropped in 2012.
Elizondo said he and a few others continued to keep investigating independently.
Christopher Mellon, the former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence for presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, grew concerned that nothing was being done about UAPs. Mellon then helped Elizondo elevate the issue in the department and actually get it to the Secretary of Defense by leaking three Navy videos appearing to show UFOs to the New York Times, thrusting UFOs back into the limelight.
In August 2020, the funding came back and AATTP was re-established—now under the banner of the UAP task force—and service members now are encouraged to report strange encounters.
Several navy pilots have reported sightings of suspicious objects that defied the laws of physics on some of their missions.
Former Navy pilot Lieutenant Ryan Graves told CBS his F/A-18F squadron began seeing UAPs hovering over restricted airspace southeast of Virginia Beach in 2014.
He says his pilots see them off the Atlantic Coast all the time. “Every day. Every day for at least a couple years,” he said.
The program played a video of one being spotted by Graves’ squadron off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida in 2015. Sounding shocked, the pilots are heard saying: “Look at that thing, it’s rotating! My gosh! They’re all going against the wind, the wind’s 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing dude!”
Graves said pilots believe these objects are secret U.S. or enemy spy technology. He said it was most likely a threat observation program, probably from Russia or China.
Another two pilots told the program that training about 100 miles southwest of San Diego, they saw Tic Tac-like object that mirrored their moves before disappearing abruptly. Just seconds later, the same object was detected by a navy ship 60 miles away, they said.
The government has mainly ignored UFOs since 1969, when it closed its Project Blue Book investigation. It logged 12,618 UFO sightings between 1947 and 1969.
KENS NOTE: THE ABOVE IMAGES ARE REAL AND ONLY A FEW FROM THE THOUSANDS OF ALIEN CRAFT PHOTOS ON WWW.WORLDUFOPHOTOS.ORG
U.S. intelligence agencies are expected to deliver a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” to Congress next month, sparking renewed interest and speculation into how the government has handled sightings of mysterious flying objects — and if there’s any worldly explanation for them.
The unclassified report, compiled by the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense, aims to make public what the Pentagon knows about unidentified flying objects and data analyzed from such encounters.
While UFOs have been part of American mythology for decades, this report is different. Legitimate debates over UFO sightings have gained traction in recent years after several leaked photos and videos from the U.S. Navy appeared to show mysterious flying objects in American airspace.
Last year, the Pentagon declassified three such videos captured by Navy pilots, intensifying speculation over the incidents, which have been confirmed by pilots who have observed them and even presidents who have been briefed on them.
Here’s how UFO sightings jumped from the realm of science fiction to the halls of Congress.
What do we know so far?
In August, the Department of Defense established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to investigate and “gain insight” into the “nature and origins” of unidentified flying objects. Earlier that year, the Department of Defense declassified three videos taken by Navy pilots — one from 2004 and two from 2015 — that showed mysterious objects flying at high speeds across the sky.
“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified,’” Pentagon officials said in a statement at the time.
The three videos had leaked years earlier, but Pentagon officials said they declassified the footage to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”
A separate leaked Navy video, captured in July 2019, showed a sphere-shaped unidentified object flying over water near San Diego. The footage, obtained by a documentary filmmaker and shared with NBC News, appeared to show the mysterious object flying for a few minutes before disappearing into the water.
And on Sunday, two former Navy pilots were interviewed by “60 Minutes” on CBS News about a UFO sighting over the Pacific Ocean in 2004. Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich spotted the unidentified object during a training exercise but were unable to classify it. Fravor described it as a “little white Tic-Tac-looking object,” adding that it lacked conventional exhaust plumes and had no wings or visible markings.
It also moved erratically, the pilots said.
In an interview with NBC News that aired in February, Fravor described the 2004 encounter, calling the object “the strangest, most obscure thing I’ve ever seen flying.”
“As soon as we looked down, we see the whitewater, and then we see this little white Tic Tac,” Fravor told NBC’s “The Overview.” “It’s pointing north-south and it’s just going forward, back, left, right,” he said, adding that it was bouncing around “like a ping-pong ball.”
Fravor said he approached the mysterious object to take a closer look, and it began mirroring his movements. When the pilot got to within a half-mile of the UFO, it suddenly vanished, he said. In 2019, the Navy put together new guidelines for pilots to report “unidentified aircraft,” in a bid to formalize a process to investigate these types of mysterious sightings. The updated guidance came as a response to “a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated air space in recent years,” Navy officials told Politico in a statement at the time.
Shortly after 10:30PM in the clear, Northwest sky I observed what appeared to be a streak of light moving across the sky to the east. Initially I believed it was a piece of re-entering space junk but quickly abandoned that notion when the streak did not change in intensity as I would expect from debris or a meteor. It slowly moved from west to east at a constant speed and course. When it was directly north at its closest point, I thought I observed a very low hum but it was difficult to tell with the other sounds of the city. As it moved to the east, I expected to see it fade away as multiple other satellites and the space station had done that night but the light it emitted never decreased which led me to believe that the object was within the atmosphere and was generating the light itself rather than reflecting it. It maintained course and speed until it passed behind local trees and I could no longer see it. WITNESS 2 Saturday night I observed what I thought was a wisp of cloud which seemed weird because it was a very clear night. At first it seemed like a spiral but became more solid over time. It was very still, like a whale going through the water. It seemed to be flying at an altitude that jets would normally travel but was far more massive than any jet. I did not observe any sound or changes as it passed by. It was a very calm night and very clear. We had observed a number of other satellites previously that night and I do a lot of sky watching. I have seen Skylink before. This was unlike anything I had ever observed. Eventually it got to a point where I could no longer observe it and it was too late to leave the house.
In January my boyfriend and I were up really late and we went outside to have a cigarette. When we went outside I looked across the field and saw a large glowing dome. I pointed it out to my boyfriend and we were both in awe. We have no idea what else it could have been. It was so unbelievably bright. The entire surface of it was one solid white-orange-yellow color and seemed to be casting light, but there was no glow on the snow around it. It looked like it was about 700-800 feet away from us and it was large, if I had to guess I would say 8-10 feet wide at the base. I assume it was a sphere shape that appeared as a dome because the object was on the ground. We watched it for a minute or two just trying to figure out what it was, and by the time we decided it wasn’t normal and I ran to get my camera it started to fade away. It didn’t fly away or move at all, the light just slowly dissipated until it was completely gone. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
A slender but massive in length ship flew from E to W. Entire craft was dimly lit almost like a glow so you could see the entire craft from front to rear. There was one noticeably brighter light on the side towards the back of the craft but otherwise it was a consistent soft light, almost made it seem partially translucent. It took about 5-6 minutes to cover the sky. It appeared to be several hundred feet in length but very narrow too to bottom. My wife, son and I watched it until it disappeared on the horizon. My wife and son tried to film it but it wouldn’t show on their phones. We will try to see if we can enhance the footage to get it to show up.
The following account has been addressed several times before, and I have had it in my notes for quite some time. The recent interest in the Space program, and questions about our future goals in space have caused me to dust it off. I believe it will be of interest to our viewers.
This extraordinary story comes to us from one Karl Wolfe. Wolfe worked for the Director of Intelligence at Headquarters Tactical Air Command, Technical Group. The fantastic events explained here occurred while he was stationed at Langley Field, Virginia.
Langley Field was center for information received from the Lunar Orbiter Project. Satellite receivers from around the world waited for information from the Orbiter, and it was then channeled to Langley, where the information was transformed into photographic images, and other top-secret data.
The photographic imaging was done at a secure military lab ran by NSA. In an interview for UFO magazine, Wolfe asserted that he was one of only two technicians at Langley with high enough security clearance to work with the high-tech photographic equipment which processed info from U-2 spy planes, and other military intelligence hardware.
Wolfe, in his own words:
… At any rate, I was in a color lab one day when my boss, Staff Sergeant Taylor, came over to me and said that they were having a problem with some equipment on the base an it was the first lunar orbiter program, where thy had a mission to pretty much locate the first landing sites for the 1969 lunar mission for the astronauts.
So he said they were having some problem with equipment over there. it was similar equipment to what we had- it was computerized contact printing equipment. He wanted to know if I would go over and take a look at it. He said to me, It’s an NSA facility. At the time, I didn’t Know what the NSA was–I was pretty naive.
I thought he said NASA. So in my mind, for a long time I thought it was a NASA facility that I had gone to, but I remembered him saying NSA and converting it in my own mind to NASA…
Wolfe claims that one day when NSA photographic equipment failed, he was called in to assist them with the critical repair work needed to keep the machines on the job. Coincidentally, Wolfe was the only individual available at the time trained in the type of equipment that had failed. He normally would be crossing lines by venturing into NSA territory.
His security clearance status was raised to enable him to even enter the highly secure laboratory.
Wolfe’s heart raced as he entered the here-to-fore forbidden hangar that day, and he was shocked to see the frantic activity in the lab, activities carried out by individuals of many different nations.
Wolfe had naturally thought that only American citizens would be in the NASA lab, but there were many individuals with guest name tags on, and obviously from foreign countries present this day, inferring that they were there on a temporary basis for some special occasion.
He felt a sense of panic as to his mission. Whatever he was called in for was of the utmost importance. He was told that the equipment in question was in a nearby dark room.
As he was led into the room, only the red glow of a safety light greeted him at first, but in a moment, he could make out the figure of one airman who manned the dark room.
Wolfe knew that the image processing equipment would have to be removed to be repaired, and he also knew that the diagnostics on this type of equipment would take some time to finish.
Arrangements were quickly made for the photographic equipment to be taken to another secure location for Wolfe to begin the painstaking task of troubleshooting the problem. As Wolfe waited for transport to arrive, he began to chat with the other airman. Wolfe carefully asked why the NASA work was being done at Langley and not NASA in Houston.
It was then that he was told that all of the NASA image information was downloaded to Langley, enhanced and made into the finished photographs that were then studied by different branches of the Armed Forces. The dark room attendant began to explain to Wolfe just what all the secrecy was about.
Wolfe was told that recent enhanced images had surprisingly, yet clearly shown structures on the surface of the dark side of the Moon. Structures that definitely were not created by natural means, such as meteors, or ancient collisions with other heavenly bodies. The structures were created by intelligent beings.
“We discovered,” the airman said, “a base of the back side of the Moon.”
Wolfe was obviously stunned by this extraordinary disclosure. He remembers literally “shaking” trying to take in the enormity of what he had been told. Seeing Wolfe’s disbelief, the dark room attendant continued;
“Yes, a base on the dark side of the Moon.”
Although the attendant had not actually said that the structures were not created by inhabitants of Earth, it seemed to go without saying. Wolfe was still in amazement as he was now looking down at the very photographs he was trying to envision in his mind.
Bending down under the red glowing lamp, he was seeing what so very few would see. He could clearly make out geometric shapes, well organized, and well designed.
Most noticeable to him were what looked exactly like radar antennas, very similar to what one could see on Earth.
There was no doubt now in Wolfe’s mind why the odd complement of scientists and investigators were in attendance at this place on this day. They had arrived to see and study what he was looking at now; structures made by intelligent beings on the Moon.
Questions flooded his mind now; Could Russia have made these structures, putting the first flag on the lunar surface? Could this be a joint venture of some kind? If so, by whom? Americans and aliens? Whomever was the creator, Wolfe felt like he had been caught stealing, or with his hand in the cookie jar. He was NOT supposed to see these photographs.
He could be arrested, or worse. He just wanted to do his job, leave, and never mention it again. Wolfe did finish the job he was commissioned to do, keeping the memories of that day dormant in his mind, and went on with his life.
Wolfe, however, was haunted by the images he saw that day for many years to come. After he left the active service, his security clearance prohibited him from leaving the United States for five years, and he was sworn to keep what he had seen to himself.
It would be thirty years before he told anyone about that unforgettable day.
For the year that Wolfe saw the remarkable structures on the dark side of the Moon was 1965, four years before Neil Armstrong put the first footprint on the lunar surface. Or was it the first? NOTE: The above image is real but from Russia’s luna-17 mission to the Moon.
On August 16, 1954, at 05:00pm, an event stupefied tens of thousands of witnesses at Tananarive, Madagascar (The number of potential witness is an estimated 200,000).
At 05:00pm, Air France’s agency personal awaited the arrival of the air mail, delivered by a Lockheed Constellation. One hour after the arrival of the Constellation, the mail has already been distributed and members of the Air France agency, among which Mr. Edmond Campagnac, former military officer and at that time technical director of Air France in Tananarive were quietly chatting together, close to the Avenue of the Liberation, the largest street in Tananarive.
Sudden somebody sees in the sky a “electric green ball” descending straight towards the ground near the Palais de la Reine. He points at it and everybody watches. The phenomenon disappears behind a hill, and they all expect to hear a mighty explosion when the thing hit the ground. But the green light does not hit the ground.
The green ball reappears a minute afterwards, bigger. It makes a circle over the higher parts of Tananarive, a city built on and inside a series of hills with a “horseshoe” Configuration. The thing then proceeds to fly above Avenue of the Liberation, at an altitude of some 50 to 150 meters in front of tens of thousands of amazed inhabitants. When it flew in front of the Air France personnel, they could all get a good look at it.
Mr. Campagnac realized that the “electric green light” looks like a kind of lens shaped plasma, of approximately 40 meters length, the “size of a DC4 aircraft.” This green lens is closely followed by a flying machine with a distinct silvery metallic aspect and the shape of a football, also 40 meter long, At the back of this metal machine, bluish exhaust flames are seen.
The craft was totally silent. M. Campagnac, in his testimony, which he often publicly offered, explains that the craft did not even make the sound of swishing a flyier would make through the air. In this case, it is noticeable that the estimate of altitude is not subject to doubts: indeed, while flying above the buildings of Avenue de la Libération, the craft also passed in front of the hills in the background, not with the sky as background.
Several physical phenomena were observed: first of all, the witnesses in the whole city could note that public lights and shop lights died out exactly at the moment the craft passed above them, and functioned again at once behind its passage. Then the inhabitants quickly noticed that barnyard animals, dogs in the whole city, were howling or barking. At one time during its travel above the city, the UFO flew above the animal park where peasants keep the animals to be sold at daytime at the city’s markets.
All these animals entered a state of total panic when the object flew over them, though when airplanes flew over them as usually, for example the “Constellation” one hour before, the animals did never show any such reaction, although airplanes are noisy and the UFO, again, was totally silent. After having flown over Tananarive, the machine set out towards the West. Two or three minutes after, the estimate while being with this approximation, a similar machine or the same machine was observed at 150 kilometers South of Tananarive above a farm school. There again, the herds were seized by panic.
The farm director had to call for reinforcements in order to bring back the animals which run away in all directions, risking death in marshes. It is this call to reinforcements which made the witnesses of Tananarive aware of this second observation.
If the craft observed at 150 km South was the same one as that of Tananarive, which its description suggests, although one cannot absolutely prove it, then its speed was to be about 3000 km/h. According to the statements of Air France the personal, General Fleurquin, commander-in-chief of the French Air Force in Madagascar, gathered a scientific team to carry out an investigation of the phenomena.
No trace of this investigation could be found in the Air Force records, however issue #6 of the GEPA bulletin (Group of Studies of the Aerospace Phenomena) in the 2nd half of 1964 described this observation. Mr. Campagnac remembers perfectly that it is a Jesuit clergyman, Revend Coze, director of the astronomical observatory of Tananarive, who has been given the task to carry out the survey and record the testimonies, including those of Air France people and also those of Malgaches peasants.
This gathering of testimonies also brought out that the UFO phenomenon did already manifest itself to the Malgache people on several occasions in the past years, but went ignored as no one cared to ask until now.
Mr. Edmond Campagnac, at the time technical director of Air France in Tananarive, took part in the study of the case for the COMETA committee. He expressed himself repeatedly and very precisely on this case, including of the French TV, and recently again at a televised debate concerning UFOS on the documentary cable TV channel “Planète Forum” in 2001, supported by Jean-Jacques Vélasco, director of SEPRA, the official French UFO investigation team.
Because of this exceptional occurrence, M. Catagnac’s life was not fundamentally perturbated, but indeed as he has a scientific background, he wanted to learn more on the topic of UFOs, and in particular, he wanted to search in the military records of the French Gendarmerie, was granted a clearance to access classified files, and learned about many other significant sightings. But this is another story.
Mr. Campagnac remembers that at the time of the investigation the possibility that it has been a top secret prototype of a new human flying device, for example a Soviet prototype, has been considered. But now as time went by and as we know of the history of aviation development, we clearly can rule out that any such craft was in the possibility of any countries in 1954.
No “secret plane”, even as of today, has anything in common with the craft in this event, visually, or by its performances, its operation, its behavior. Jean Jacques Vélasco has checked and commented the case and points out its interesting features: The trajectory of the object, descending from a high altitude vertically to the ground, then showing up again instead of crashing and flying above the ground at low altitude over the city.
The physical phenomenon of public and private lightings dying out as the UFO was passing above, and the return to normal lighting when he went further. Phenomena of the animals reactions. The possibility of the correct estimate of the size because the object passed in front of the hills in the background. The heterogeneous cultural background of the witness: “Mr. Campagnac might have read about UFOs in Science-Fiction literature, but it is rather doubtful that the Malgaches peasants were all under the influence of US Science Fiction pulps.”
The fact that the case does not occur in the United States or a European country, suspected to be a sociological terrain to made up UFO stories, but in a far away Island, is an indication that good UFO cases exist all around the world. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
JUNE 14, 1989 ……….CHILLIWACK BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA
I grew up in an old house on a large piece of property, surrounded by trees, ponds, and everything that a young kid could ever want. It was amazing to spend my youth catching frogs, swimming, and spending every minute I could outside. I remember being a happy, outgoing kid who grew up in a healthy, well-adjusted household. But then everything changed when I was around nine years old… Sometime between 1988 and 1990, I saw something hovering in the air just above the treeline, right outside my childhood home one summer morning. The headboard of my small bed was pushed up against the base of a south-facing window in my room. I have no idea why, but I can remember this extremely clearly. It was early in the morning, but the sun was up and the sky had no clouds at all. Rather than waking up and opening my eyes in a fog, like everyone normally does, I know that I woke up instantly while I was laying flat on my back; picture yourself laying on your back like a board with your eyes closed, now open them as fast as you can and being abruptly awake.
The kind of ‘wake up’ where you know something isn’t right instantly and you’re on full alert. Thing is, I opened my eyes quickly and was staring straight at a triangle sitting motionless in the air, roughly 50 to 100 feet above the trees that surrounded my yard. I remember staring at it for roughly a minute or less and seeing three blue-ish white circles under it. I couldn’t move or blink. I couldn’t even think. It was just sitting there motionless and, for some reason that I can’t understand, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I was staring at something that I couldn’t explain, couldn’t identify, and made no sense of, yet this nine-year-old boy simply went back to sleep…? To this day, I swear that I didn’t fall back asleep under my own free will, but I have no evidence and obviously can’t explain what happened. I do not know if it’s related to what I saw, or just a simple case of sleep paralysis, but I can also remember being ‘frozen’ in bed as a child on multiple occasions. I have no memories of seeing anything or being taken anywhere, but one of those frozen moments involved something heavy on my back that kept me from rolling over or getting up.
While I’m not convinced that it’s related, I distinctly remember simply falling asleep while being held down, just like I fell asleep after seeing the triangle out my bedroom window. I couldn’t scream but I was terrified, and I just went back to sleep? So strange. Something changed after I saw that damn triangle. I became far less outgoing, laughed less, and have been very, very anti-social since then. I’m 40 years old now and have been interested in unexplainable sightings since I was a child, obviously due in large part to what I saw, but I’ve never told anyone, not even family members. I remember thinking to myself that I’ll tell my parents if someone else reports seeing something odd, but no one ever did, at least that I know of. But I don’t understand how, if the triangle really was real, no one else saw it given the nearby houses and people. Very confusing. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
SEPTEMBER 30, 1954 ……….NOUATRE, INDRE-ET-LOIRE FRANCE
This case was originally brought to light by renown researcher Jacques Vallee, and it is a strange one indeed. Occurring at Nouatre, Indre-et-Loire, France in 1954, it is a case unlike any other, and yet all of the witnesses to the event are considered trustworthy, and their strange sighting has never been debunked.
American ufology students have treated this case with little credibility, but serious investigators have embraced it as genuine. It began at a construction site at 4:30 P.M. on September 30, 1954.
George Gatay, who was foreman of an eight-man construction crew, was unexpectedly drawn away from his crew, feeling a sense of “peculiar drowsiness.” He was walking, but did not know why or to where. A short distance from his construction site, Gatay was amazed to encounter a man standing on a slope, some 30 feet from him.
The “man” was wearing an opaque glass helmet with a large visor. He was wearing gray coveralls, and short boots. He also held an object in his hand, which Gatay described as a weapon of some kind, like a rod. There was a kind of electronic instrument display on his chest. This strange looking man was standing in front of a dome-shaped object, which hovered about 3 feet above the ground.
The craft had a cupola with blade-like devices above it. Gatay, enthralled with the sight of the man and his craft, was frozen in his tracks.
Gatay stated: “Suddenly, the strange man vanished, and I couldn’t explain how he did it, since he did not disappear from my field of vision by walking away, but vanished like an image one erases. Then I heard a strong whistling sound which drowned the noise of our excavators. Soon the object rose by successive jerks, in a vertical direction, and then it too was erased in a sort of blue haze, as if by a miracle.”
Gatay had tried to run after first seeing the being and object, but was “paralyzed” during the sighting. Strangely, his seven co-workers were also in a sort of a daze during the incident. All eight of the men were “non-believers” before their strange incident.
As soon as Gatay was released from his strange encounter, he ran back to the other workers, and cried, “Have you seen something?” One of the men, Mr. Beurrois, exclaimed, “Yes–A flying saucer!”
Another of the men, excavator driver Mr. Lubanovic added, “There was a man dressed like a diver in front of it.” The other workers all added their confirmation to the strange event.
Gatay was a well-known and respected man who had fought in the war with the French Resistance, and was wounded in Luxembourg. After the sighting, he began to suffer from insomnia, strong headaches, and a loss of appetite.
These symptoms lasted about a week. Even after this strange sighting, the men collectively believed that they had been witnesses to some type of experimental craft, probably from France itself.
This explanation was not feasible given the details of the hovering of the craft, and the actual vanishing of the craft in front of the men. What was this other-wordly craft seen by these men?
And the being, was it a living entity, or a remotely controlled robot of some type? To this day, no reasonable explanation has been given to answer these questions, and this case is still listed as unexplained. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
In October, 1954, in Staffordshire, UK, Jessie Roestenberg was in her small cottage, while her two sons were outside. Mrs. Roestenberg heard an usual sound; a sound like water being poured on a fire. Her first thoughts were of her children. Could a plane be about to crash? Going outside to see what had caused this strange sound, she saw both of her sons laying on the ground in the garden in front of the house. They were shouting, “Mommy, Mommy, there’s a flying saucer.” Mrs. Roestenberg walked to the side of the house, got a strange feeling, looked up a saw a “huge, Mexican hat” like object. It was of a shining, metallic-silver substance and it was sitting stationary above the house. The object had a dome on top, through which she could see two occupants. She described them as “beautiful,” with long golden hair. The occupants wore a pale-blue jumper suit. The UFO was tilted in a position that allowed Mrs. Roestenberg to see the occupants, and they could see her. She could see them clearly enough to tell that the bottoms of their faces were similar in shape to a human’s, while the top of their heads were proportionaly larger. During this encounter, the witness was “paralyzed with fear.” The eerie confrontation seemed to make time stand still; she could not tell how long she watched the object. For a brief moment, she glanced at her two boys, and when she looked back up, the UFO had gone. She asked her sons where the object had gone. They pointed up to a small dot in the sky. The UFO circled three times in the air, and then shot away into the sky. The fear of what she and her sons had seen compelled them to hide under the kitchen table, until her husband came home from work. NOTE” The above image is CGI.
On July 17, 1955, an unidentified flying object was spotted in the Bexleyheath area by several people. Now a former policeman is doing research on the sightings. Two Bexley men, both now in their 60s, have recently been reliving their own X-Files experiences from their childhood. Rodney Maynard, from Belvedere, who is now 62, has contacted the News Shopper to reveal he was one of the youngsters who saw the UFO featured in our September 4 edition. Retired policeman John Hanson, from the West Midlands, was appealing for a group of children who saw the craft land in the King Harold’s Way area of Bexleyheath in 1955 to get in touch with him, as he is researching the incident for a book.
Mr Maynard was 15 at the time and was working as a labourer on a building site in nearby Streamway. He remembers the incident vividly. “We were on our lunch break when we heard something was happening in King Harold’s Way. So we went up there to have a look. “This thing had landed in the roadway. It took up the whole width of the road and overlapped onto the pavements.“It wasn’t on the ground, it had about eight massive suckers. The centre was still, but the outer rim was spinning slowly and it had white lights flashing, like a camera flash,” he recalled.
“There were about 30 of us staring at it. We could hear it humming. “It had what looked like windows but the glass was concave and moulded together so you couldn’t see in. A couple of us went forward to try and touch it and it began to spin faster. “Then it lifted slowly off the ground and hovered above our heads, tilting slightly.” The craft moved slowly until it was over Bedonwell Primary School, where it stayed for about a minute, then shot up into the sky and disappeared. Mr. Maynard, whose 16-year-old brother also saw the craft said: “It was black, sleek and streamlined with a surface like polished metal. It was very fine and beautiful. It certainly wasn’t a prank.”
He went on: “I have never forgotten it but I don’t talk about it because people would think you were barmy. “We used to talk about it among ourselves but our mums kept telling us we hadn’t seen anything.” As well as his brother, Mr Maynard listed several other pals who were also there: “Ron Deadman, Tony Savin, Vic Clarke, Tommy Staggs, we were all there.” Ken Fairman knows just how he feels. Mr Fairman, from Bexleyheath, says he saw a very similar craft with his pal Roy Beadle three years before, in 1952.
They were out walking Ray’s dog at an old farmstead in Bexleyheath known as The Warren (now the Warren Road area). “It was late afternoon. We had just come home from Bexleyheath School and we had Ray’s young border collie with us. We saw it come down and hover about 18ft above the ground. There was no noise at all. We threw ourselves down on the ground and watched it. The dog which was young and usually lively, lay down between us. We lost all track of time. “It was about 20 or 30ft wide, with terrifically bright white lights underneath. It looked very similar to the drawing in your September 4 issue. Then it shot off and disappeared from view before you could click your fingers. “I could still take you to the exact spot. I don’t know how long we watched for but I got told off for being late home for tea. I told my parents but they thought I was crackers.”
Margaret Fry was also a witness to this UFO encounter. Margaret, who lived in Hythe Avenue, was making her way to her doctor’s surgery. She and the doctor, Dr Thukarta, both saw what she described as an “enormous craft” hovering over the doctor’s car. She described the craft as saucer-shaped with a “blue/silver/grey/pewter texture, yet, none of those colours.” Mrs Fry said it also had what looked like three spheres inset into its base, one of which “flopped out”, landing on the ground at the junction of nearby Ashbourne and Whitfield Road. A group of twelve children who were playing nearby saw it and went over to have a closer look, before it rose up from the ground and into the sky, disappearing from sight after a few minutes. Dr Thukarta died in 1965, but Mr. Hanson has spoken at length to Mrs Fry, who now lives in North Wales, about her experience. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This most unusual event originated on the night of August 21, 1955. Located in the rural area of Christian County, Kentucky, this UFO enigma took place in the little town of Kelly, located near the small city of Hopkinsville. The family Sutton would be the target of this “one of a kind” journey into the unknown.
The lifestyle of a typical Kentucky rural family has been kept intact for many decades, and the Sutton family fit this tradition to a tee. “Lucky” Sutton, as he was known to friends and neighbors, was the “patriarch” of this bluegrass clan.
Visiting Lucky and his family was a man from Pennsylvania named Billy Ray Taylor. Billy left the Sutton house to go for some water from the family well. There was no inside plumbing at the Sutton farm house. At the well, he saw an immense, shining object land in a small gully about a quarter of a mile away. Running back to the house, he excitedly reported his sighting to others in the house. Billy was laughed at; no one believed his “crazy” tale.
After a short period of time, the family dog began to raise a ruckus outside. As was the custom in those parts, Lucky and Billy grabbed their guns and headed outside, planning to shoot first, and ask questions later. Only a short distance from the front door, both men were stopped dead in their tracks by the sight of a 3-4 foot tall creature, who was walking towards them with hands up, as if to surrender.
This most bizarre creature would be described as having “large eyes, a long thin mouth, large ears, thin short legs, and hands ending in claws.” Frightened by the small greenish entity, Billy Ray fired a shot with his .22, and Lucky unloaded with his shotgun. Both men later admitted that there was no way they missed the creature at close range, but the little being just did a back flip, and ran into the woods in fright.
No sooner had the two men reentered the house before the creature, or another like it, appeared at a window. They took a shot at him, leaving a blast hole through the screen. They ran back outside to see if the creature was dead, but found no trace of it. Standing at the front of the house, the men were terrified by a clawed hand reaching down from the roof in an attempt to touch them.
Again, they shot, but the being simply floated to the ground, and scurried into the cover of the woods. The two men sought the protection of the house again, only to find themselves under siege from these little men. For a time, the entities seemed to tease the family, appearing from one window to another. Taking pot shots through the windows and walls, their weapons seemed totally ineffective against the invading creatures.
After several hours of fear, the Sutton family decided to make a break from the house, and get help at the Police station at Hopkinsville. Family members took two vehicles to the Police Station in Hopkinsville, and reported their strange tale to Sheriff Russell Greenwell. Finally persuading the policemen that they were not joking, the authorities agreed to visit the Sutton house. Arriving at the farm, police found no trace of the creatures, but did find numerous bullet and rifle holes in the windows and walls.
Greenwell was in charge of the twenty plus officers at the scene, and reported that the Suttons seemed sober, and were genuinely frightened by something. After a canvas of the neighbors, reports were entered of the “hearing of shots being fired,” and the observation of “lights in the sky.” Exhausting all efforts to find the origin of this strange report, the police left the Sutton place at about 2:15 am. As soon as they did, the creatures made their return. They began again peeking in the windows, seemingly out of curiosity. More gunfire took place, but again without effect.
Several more hours of antics followed, finally stopping just before daybreak. The police were finally persuaded to call in Air Force personnel the next morning, but a new search brought no results. After the beings had left, Billy Ray and Lucky had gone into Evansville, Indiana to take care of some business. The other five family members were questioned by Air Force and Police.
On 8/22/55, the Kentucky “New Era” newspaper carried the story of the events. Naturally, initial public opinion was that the whole story was a hoax. If this was the case, several questions must be answered. Why would the Sutton family make up such an incredible claim? They made no money from the story, and did not seek any publicity. Why would they shoot holes in the walls of their home, causing a financial drain on the family to repair the damages?
Including Billy Ray and Lucky, seven adults were witnesses to these events. All of them, when questioned separately, gave the same story. Also sketches were made of the beings, and they depicted the creatures in a like manner. A year after the events, the case was thoroughly investigated by Isabel Davis, who related that the witnesses’ stories had not changed. As the years rolled by, the accounts of the Sutton family stood firm. No evidence of a hoax has ever been brought forward.
The case was also looked into by Bud Ledwith, who was an engineer at a Hopkinsville radio station. Noted investigator, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, also accepted the accounts of the Suttons. Hynek discussed the details of the case with Davis and Ledwith. Although the Kelly-Hopkinsville case is an extremely unusual one, it is considered today to be authentic by many UFO investigators.
The information contained within this email and accompanying photography was given to me by my late father, I have no way of proving that any of what is contained within this email is true or false, all I can say is that my father was a serious man, a man of integrity and extremely honest and was not a liar.
My dad worked for the United States Air Force all of his life until he retired, it was only many years after his retirement and when he was in his later years that he told me this truly incredible story and showed me the photographs. He told me he worked as part of a small team who conducted top secret scientific research and that he worked on many highly classified deep black military programs and projects, most of which are still classified to this day.
One day in the spring of 1948 one of his colleagues pulled him to one side and said “get your shit together, something big’s going down.” He and his team were flown to an airforce base in Nevada, from there they were then flown by helicopter to a remote area were they were told to get onto a large bus with blacked out windows and along with roughly 30 other passengers they were driven to within 2 miles of the location, whilst on the bus everyone was ordered to remain silent.
When they got of the bus he and his team were then escorted to a mountainous area on foot which was very heavily guarded by armed soldiers, when he arrived at the final destination he said they were confronted with a very large metallic flying saucer shaped craft.
He said they were told that the craft had landed and had been there for some time and that the military had managed to gain access to the saucer by using diamond tipped drills. He and his team were taken inside the craft, he said it was unlike anything they had ever seen, nothing like any kind of conventional aircraft, no seats, levers, dials or instruments or anything like that was visible, he said it was like the whole interior was made out of some form of grey wax material, he said it was a very peculiar and a very eerie sight.
Inside the craft he said he saw 5 dead aliens, he described them as been about 4 to 4 and a half feet tall with grey hairless spindly bodies with large heads, huge black almond shaped eyes, no ears and tiny mouths, he said it wasn’t apparent as to how they had died as they appeared to have no injuries, what his team found very fascinating and very strange was that they were all huddled together on the floor and it looked like they were almost organically attached to the grey wax material, almost as if they were plants growing from within it, he said it was a very peculiar and a very bizarre sight, he said there was also a terrible smell which no one could describe.
A small metallic bottle was also beside them which contained what looked like an unknown thick purple liquid. Eventually a retrieval team was put into place and the craft and it’s dead occupants was flown out to a top secret location, my dad said he and his team were later briefed by military intelligence officers and were told that what they saw and worked on was nothing more than a top secret Russian remote controlled aircraft and the creatures were dummies, they were all sworn to secrecy and ordered never to speak about it to anyone. My dad said he can be seen stood in in front of the saucer on the photos, showing just how big this thing was.
12 months later the same thing happened again, only this time the location was Arizona. My dad told me it happened in the summer of 1949 and the set up was exactly the same as last time, flight, helicopter, blacked out bus, etc and finally they were confronted with what they were told was another landed Russian aircraft.
This time he and his team were confronted with a different style of craft, but saucer-shaped just like the last one and slightly smaller but still a huge metallic flying saucer by any stretch of the imagination.
He told me the craft had some sort of force field or energy field around it (see photo) and that no one could get close to it and everyone was ordered to keep their distance, only after 2 full days did the force field finally turn itself off.
It was at this point that attempts were made by the military to gain access into the the saucer, all without success, apparently they even tried explosives but nothing would penetrate it, they couldn’t even make a scratch or a dent in the thing, he told me they climbed up a ladder and looked through the portholes and the craft looked almost identical inside to the last saucer they saw, no kind of visible instrumentation could be seen and the interior looked very similar to the last craft, completely covered in some sort of whitish wax material, 9 tiny seats could be seen arranged in a semi-circle, my dad said they looked like the size of chairs that you would expect to see at an infant school, tiny.
Roughly half a mile away there was a large military tent, when my dad and his team entered into it he said there was 7 dead aliens on the floor, all lying on a large sheet of military camouflage material, the creatures were almost identical to the aliens he saw last time, except this time all the creatures were all wearing what looked like one piece tight fitting silver space suits with what looked like skull caps on their heads, my dad said there was strange symbols on the suits which were completely indecipherable.
It appeared that the occupants had been out and about and walking around doing something and for some unknown reason had all just dropped dead, 3 of the occupants were carrying a small silver metallic rod with a small red light on the end of it, it was unclear whether these were some kind of instrument or weapon, what was strange was that all the creatures appeared to be frothing at the mouth and a hardened white froth could clearly be seen coming from to noses and mouths of all of the dead creatures.
My dad said that the craft and its deceased occupants was taken to Wright-Patterson Air Force base by a retrieval team, he said he and his team saw that exact same craft 3 years later in a large hanger when they were working at that air force base. Again my dad said he and his team were given the same spill as last time by military intelligence officers about what they saw been nothing more than a top secret Russian experimental spy craft and the deceased occupants been nothing more than dummies.
In early July of 1952 (just before the Washington DC UFO flap occurred) my dad and his team were working in California conducting and carrying out what he said was an ultra secret black project. He told me that he and his team witnessed a large metallic flying saucer suddenly appear in the sky from out of nowhere, apparently it landed on 3 tripod/telescopic style landing gear legs roughly 50 meters in front of them, then took off and flew off into the sky and disappeared at a high rate of speed, he said the saucer was also witnessed by 20 armed soldiers who were accompanying them on their mission.
I can only imagine that you find that story quiet incredible and remarkable and are probably skeptical? (Editor’s Note: Actually I’m not, I have at least half-dozen of these stories in my archive.) Don’t worry, when my dad told me I was like “yeah sure dad, that’s one hell of a whopper,” but when he showed me the photos and told me that it is 100 percent true, I knew he was telling the truth, plus what would he have to gain from making up such a tale? Absolutely nothing as he never told anyone about it except for me and mum.
If you find my father’s story and photographs interesting and think that your readers would also, then please be my guest and use it, if not then I am sorry for taking up some of your valuable time. It was one of my late father last wishes to finally tell his story and he asked me to find a way of getting it out there. I hope to hear back from you as soon as is possible.
I felt hesitant sharing this story, due to ridicule and judgement, but I feel the need to share it now. I work in the logging industry in the closed to the public forest that belongs to the confederated Yakama native American tribe in Washington state. I am an enrolled member of the Yakama nation tribe. I have been logging for 21 years in the Yakama forest. During the winter of 2008, I drove to the woods around 4pm to operate our road grader to plow snow. We had roughly 4-5 inches of snowfall that day, so we have to keep the roads open at all times to maintain access to our logging areas. That was my job duties at the time. After I finished up fueling the machine which was parked at the 17 mile marker on the 159 rd, letting it warm up and thaw out, an elderly man in an older pickup truck pulled up. I walked to his truck and he said, “hey there. You look like you have a big truck that can pull. Some guys in a jeep are stuck at summit creek. You be able to go pull them out?” I agreed to go take a look. I got in my lifted Chevy Duramax and headed towards Summit Creek, which was roughly 8-9 miles away. About 2-3 miles from Summit Creek, an Isuzu trooper went flying past me with 2 male occupants, nearly running me off the road. I proceeded to head towards Summit Creek, only to find one set of tracks and a 20 foot area that had been shoveled out. The Isuzu trooper was clearly the “jeep” the elderly man had been referring to. I went to turn my pickup around on the Summit Creek hill, only to have the ice under the snow spin my truck out and have me slide down the hill backwards until I hit the deep ditch near the creek and nearly tip my truck over. I remember looking at the clock on my radio and it said 5:03 pm. I waited in the truck for over an hour, trying to get ahold of someone on our company 2 way radio or CB, but by 6:00 pm, nobody from any of the logging companies was still in the hills, they had all headed home for the weekend. We have no phone service in most areas of the hills, including the area I was at. It was dark at this point, and I had no flashlight. I just figured screw it, I can’t barely see the road, but I need to walk back to the grader and bring it back to my pickup to pull myself out.
I began walking at a fairly fast rate, and didn’t pay attention to anything but my feet so I could see where the tire ruts were in the snow. Quite some time passed, and I was about 3 miles from the grader at this point. After walking up the hill past the rocky top corner, I remember seeing the 14 marker that was spray painted on a pine tree. At that moment, I began to feel a weird sensation. I felt the pressure of something above me, and I noticed the road got darker, then so dark I couldn’t see anymore. My skin started to feel like it was static everywhere, 100X stronger than any static shock I had ever felt. Every single hair follicle on my body felt like it was being shocked, and my ears were popping very rapidly, almost in the way of how a car revs its motor, best way I can describe it. All of it was extremely painful. Then, the next thing I remember was my eyes were extremely blurry, so I rubbed them, and my entire face was wet coming from both sides of my eyes. My body felt really stiff and heavy, like I just got done swimming in cold ocean water all day, but I was warm. I felt extremely panicked, scared, and the most bizarre part, all I could think about was piano keys. I felt this obsessive urge that I needed to get something done, but I just couldn’t think of what it was I needed to do. I was very shook, and my body hurt everywhere, and I started speed walking in the direction of the grader. I went to check my phone, which was fully charged when I left my truck, and it was dead. I found that odd because I would grade roads for 16 hours some nights, and the battery would still have 30% battery when I ended my shift. I proceeded to keep walking and after a while I could see the lights of the road grader finally. I put the grader in 4th gear and headed back towards my truck. Once i got by the 14 marker, I felt like I was going to have a panic attack, but i just focused on the road and didn’t look left or right.
After a short time, I arrived to my truck. I put my truck in neutral, hooked my winch line to the grader, pulled myself out, and decided to leave the grader there and go home. I looked at my radio, and It said 5:39. I thought wtf, is it wrong? I had my phone hooked to the charger, turned it on once it had a little bit of charge, and it said 5:41 AM. How is this possible???? Nearly roughly 11.5 hours to walk 7-8 miles? There’s no way I was walking that slow! Then I started to think about what happened. Am I missing time? What was that and what happened to me?? These stupid piano keys i keep seeing in my mind, why? I know nothing about pianos! Over the next several months, I kept having pain all over my body. My nerves everywhere Just stung and the rest of the time they were really itchy. It was driving me nuts. One spot in particular on my back was really painful. Couple months later it had developed into a golf ball sized patch of shingles in that same spot. I don’t know how common it is for 27 year old to get shingles. Over the next couple years, I could just picture the piano keys in my mind, moving left to right. Over time it slowly went away. I don’t know what they mean, and I don’t what that invisible thing was that came over me and made every nerve ending on my body hurt, pop my ears, made me feel like I was missing time somehow. My health has been screwed up ever since, and is just getting worse. I’d like answers, but Id like my normal quality of life back even more. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
After originally being very confused at what it could be. I came to the conclusion it was starlink. It does look like a series of lights. However the more I inspect the video the stranger that idea becomes. Throughout the video you’ll notice it’s actually slowly spinning in the sky and changing orientation. It appeared to be moving closer to me, appearing larger and brighter in the sky. Heading south then veering to the east before disappearing. There are a few instances of a shadow starting at one end of the “beam” and going across the pattern to the other side. Specifically at the 38 second mark I noticed it very clearly. I’m an amateur astronomer and look at the sky alot, but never saw anything like this… it very well could be starlink with some weird atmospheric visuals. But Holy crap in person it appeared to get closer to me and then changed direction. Most starlink videos I see look like and average everyday train of satellites moving in a straight line… this looked nothing how I imagine starlink.. but light can do some weird things traveling through thousands of ft of atmosphere? It did clearly appear larger and more overhead towards the end of the video. If you use the house as a reference. At the start I zoom in on it. By the end of the video I’m just about all the way zoomed out again.
MAY 4, 2021 ……………….SEATTLE WASHINGTON
A silent, linear in trajectory, bright object seemed to glide overhead coming in from the West headed South and emitting a hazy, almost candle-lit glow that illuminated the entirety of the object. It was silent as it slowly floated in the night sky above our heads. It took me four attempts before my phone would take a picture as the first three tries my phone seemed to have froze – black screen – then alerted me that I could not take any photos due to storage (which isn’t true) and finally my doggedness paid off…though it was nearly all but gone by the time I snapped a photo.
KENS NOTE: STARLINK was not launched this day. Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX providing satellite Internet access. The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, working in combination with ground transceivers.
I was riding my bike home with a friend and we were on the back roads on Long Beach Island, I would say 13th street headed to my road on 16th street. I noticed a light just above the clouds and it was slightly to my left maybe in the clouds or hovering just above. My friend saw it too and we began to peddle extremely fast because it was terrifying at the time. I got to my road and turned right and it STOPPED IN PLACE and made a PRECISE sharp turn right following us and now panic had set in. Thankfully I did not have to go far we threw our bikes down and ran into my house and when I got past the front porch I swung around to look at it and there it was ! It was above my neighbors house over his roof kinds of circling back and fourth the light was and then it took off and was gone in a second. I saw it fly away into at a speed that I can only describe as instant … but let me be clear the light did not go away it FLEW away it “swooped” away and never a sound. We were shook and I never forgot it and I decided to come fourth with my story. There is no explanation it has to be a UFO there were no drones at 9-10pm at night on long beach island in 1983.

This case is under investigation by Field Investigator Billy Driscoll of MUFON New Jersey.
One of the most powerful U.S. senators in modern history actually eye-witnessed two UFOs while on a fact-finding trip through Russia in 1955, and the U.S. government kept the sightings a secret for more than three decades.
The incredible encounter is detailed in 12 TOP SECRET CIA, FBI, and Air Force reports-and declassified in 1985.
Those startling reports reveal that Senator Richard B. Russell, Jr. (D-GA), then chairman of the Armed Services Committee-was on a Soviet train when he spotted a disc-shaped craft taking off near the tracks.
He hurriedly called his military aide and interpreter to the window and they saw the UFO, plus another one that appeared a minute later. The astonished trio reported the sightings to the U.S. Air Force as soon as they were out of Russia.
“The three observers were firmly convinced that they saw a genuine flying disc,” says an Air Force Intelligence report, dated October 14, 1955, and classified TOP SECRET at the time.
Senator Russell served 38 years in the Senate. He was its senior, and one of the most influential senators at the time of his death in 1971. He was chairman of the Armed Services Committee from 1951 to 1969, and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1952.
The mind-boggling documents detailing his UFO encounter were made available by the Fund for UFO Research and its chaiman, Dr. Bruce Maccabee. Several key documents were obtained by the group through the Freedom of Information Act.
“These long secret documents are of major importance because they show for the first time that one of the most powerful U.S. Senators witnessed and reported a UFO,” said Dr. Maccabee.
The Air Force Intelligence report says Russell and his two traveling companions spotted the UFOs on October 4, 1955, while traveling by rail across Russia’s Transcaucasus region.
“One disc ascended almost vertically, at a relatively slow speed, with its outer surface revolving slowly to the right, to an altitude of about 6000 feet, where its speed then increased sharply as it headed north,” the report states.
“The second flying disc was seen performing the same actions about one minute later. The take-off area was about 1-2 miles south of the rail line.
” Russell “saw the first flying disc ascend and pass over the train,” and went “rushing in to get Mr Efron (Ruben Efron, his interpreter) and Col. Hathaway (Col. E. U. Hathaway, his aide) to see it,” the report said.
“Col. Hathaway stated that he got to the window with the Senator in time to see the first (UFO), while Mr. Efron said that he got only a short glimpse of the first. However, all three saw the second disc and all agreed that they saw the same round, disc-shaped craft as the first.”
The Air Force report was written by Lieut. Col. Thomas Ryan, who interviewed Senator Russell’s companions in Prague, Czechoslovakia, on October 13, after they arrived there from Russia shortly after the sighting.
In his report, Col. Ryan called the sightings “an eyewitness account of the ascent and flight of an unconventional craft by three highly reliable United States observers. He added that Col. Hathaway led off his account of the sightings by saying: “I doubt if your going to believe this, but we all saw it.” Senator Russell was the first to see this flying disc we’ve been told for years that there isn’t such a thing, but all of us saw it.”
CIA documents show that the agency later interviewed the three eyewitnesses in the Russell party and also a fourth person, unidentified in the reports, who had seen the UFOs. An eyewitness, whose name was blacked out on the CIA report prior to its declassification, said one of the UFOs “had a slight dome on top” and also a “white light on top.” The edge of the disc was glowing pinkish-white, he added. The UFO rose “vertically with the glow moving slowly around the perimeter in a clockwise direction, giving the appearance of a pinwheel.”
Interpreter Ruben Efron told the CIA that visibility was excellent. As one UFO approached the train, he said, “the object gave the impression of gliding. No noise was heard and no exhaust was heard, and no exhaust glow or trail was seen by me.”
After the encounter, Senator Russell told the men with him:
“We saw a flying disc. I wanted you boys to see it so that I would have witnesses,” according to the CIA documents.”
And an FBI memo, dated November 4, 1955, also discusses the sighting and admitted Col. Hathaway’s testimony “would support existence of a flying disc.”
Dr. Maccabee, of the Fund for UFO Research, believes that Senator Russell and his group never publicly revealed their incredible sightings “because they were no doubt advised not to talk. These documents provide startling new evidence that UFOs exist.”
Mr. Tom Towers, in his January 20, 1957, column, ‘Aviation News,’ for the Los Angeles, CA, Examiner, printed the contents of a letter from Senator Russell, which was in response to a request for information about the sightings in Russia.
Mr. Towers had originally contacted Senator Russell’s office by letter with the request that he be given permission to “break” the story.
The Senator wrote:
“Permit me to acknowledge your letters relative to reports that have come to you regarding aerial objects seen in Europe last year. I received your letter, but I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies of the government, and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time. I regret very much that I am unable to be of assistance to you.” The letter was dated 17 January, 1956. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Seeing a giant triangular object just above my head on November 26, 2003. That’s the day the United States invaded Iraq. After the fall of Iraq, when Saddam had been hiding in a mouse hole for some time, I saw that triangle at about 8:00 pm, I stood in the middle of the yard and looked at the sky. I said how they saw the moon two nights ago when it is still impossible to see the moon. The sky was completely dark and foggy and no light could be seen. After a few minutes, I noticed the movement of an object moving in the dark sky. The more I noticed, the triangular shape was very, very giant. From my guess, each side of the triangle was more than 100 meters, but the back side looked a little smaller. Its height seemed very low, for example about 150 to 300 meters above the ground. Its speed was about 30 kilometers per hour, or the speed of a bicycle. It was completely silent and completely black and the same color as the sky. Maybe he had made that object in the sky for more camouflage. His height did not go up or down at all. His speed was exactly the same speed and in no way increased or decreased. Its direction was on a perfectly straight line, exactly from south to north, and it could not be left or right at all. I wanted to take a photo with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone, but that phone was useless and nothing could be seen inside the photo. I called my brothers, but no one heard Saddam because it was almost cold and the windows were closed and they were watching satellite programs almost loudly. It took about 10 minutes for the object to reach me from south to north and move just above my head. If I turned my head and looked at it again, I could hardly find it, and from its speed and direction, I could tell where the sky is now, and I would look at it and find it again. In my opinion, that triangular object can be a UFO nest so that it can hold dozens of UFOs. (Like warships with dozens of planes on them) and I can say that I have seen the mother ship of the UFOs. Now the question is: That giant object due to its very low speed but much larger than the football field and its not going up and down and that it was completely soundless and without light; There were no satellites, planes, spy planes, helicopters or balloons. We all know that it did not look like man-made technology. And I don’t think it could be detected by human radar. That is, completely hidden from the radar. And what happened that night? So far I have not written these two events so accurately anywhere. And I’m going to send a copy of this post to Mufon in the United States. NOTE: The above image is the witness rendering.
The UFO in the photo to the left was seized by the U. S. government in the Boumount Ridge section of Jasper, Colorado, in the summer of 1956.
The government moved the flying saucer to a remote area called Wild Fork, where they ran tests on it, eventually figuring out how to fly this spaceship. The above photo was taken by a government official during one of the many test flights.
At sunset on July 17, 1956, Miles Oman, a farmer in Jasper, Colorado, was getting ready to call it a day. He was walking back to his house when this strange, oval-shaped object in the sky caught his eye. It looked like a spaceship. The object zipped across the sky and was gone.
This sighting kicked off one of the most amazing UFO incidents in the history of the world. For approximately two months, the town of Jasper and the surrounding areas experienced one unusual event after another.
Scientists rushed in to investigate, reporters rushed in looking for stories, and government officials rushed in to keep it a secret from the world.
Police were called to reports of strange behavior in Corrientes, Argentina, where they supposedly snapped the other-worldly being on a mobile phone.
Terrified teenagers alerted the authorities and reportedly pointed them towards the alien in a park.
The creature then fled into a nearby river where officers lost track of it, Express.co.uk reports. Conspiracist Terry Larch wrote: “This photograph is incredible and may be the best evidence of aliens living among us yet.
“Once the police arrived, they wandered over slowly, approaching this strange thing.
“They soon realised that this was no human but something else entirely.
“It appeared to be a rather traditional looking extraterrestrial being, typically seen in movies and drawings.”
Larch was taken aback by the alien’s features and striking appearance.
He added: “The shape and size of the alien is rather remarkable to see.
“It has the oval head shape and almond dark shaped eyes. Its hands appear to have only three fingers protruding outward.
((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to Mr. Ron Wright, former MUFON Field Investigator for MUFON/Oregon, for submitting this nice report, with illustration. He can be reached at PD))
This investigator has over 30 years of looking into crop circles, cattle mutilations, ufo sightings and other cases including a search and rescue of a missing woman in Eastern Oregon. But this is my first hand report of a ‘Close Encounter of the Third Kind’.
This incident comes by a phone call to my spouse on the late evening of 6 June 2018 at about 9:30 pm, she received a call from her son. He is a former US Army veteran, former police officer and currently a security guard at a local casino.
Watching my spouse’s face as she was talking to her son, was a look of concern. She handed me the phone and said, “You need to hear this!” As I listened to her son, he was sincere about what they saw and encountered.
The main witness was his girlfriend’s daughter who is age 12. Given permission, I spoke with the girl for over 30 minutes asking specific questions. Here is a short summery of that chat;
“What time and where did you have this sighting? About 7:30 today, 5 miles southeast of Siletz off a gravel road near Ojalla Road in the woods.
“How far was this creature from you? “About 100 feet or so, standing 2 legs, pale grey height 4-5 feet quarter size eyes (dark brown) ribs showing, super skinny, no clothes; head round oval, looked like no ears or nose, roundish bump where nose should be!”
“How long did you see it?” “10 seconds first time and about 12 seconds the second time…” “What else did you see or hear?”
“Birds were real quiet, then when it took off, the birds got noisy again. Prior to the sighting you could hear a ‘buzzing noise’. Then sounds got echoing, that lasted about 20 seconds, then sounds in area got normal again.
It, the creature moved unnatural, fast and quiet, no sound at all! “Did you see the whole creature? “Yeah, real skinny, ribs showing, thin like almost transparent, no clothes, quick movements…”
She went on to tell me the family checked that area for evidence and found only tuffs of black and white fur on the stump. Time I spoke with this yound girl was 9:30pm the evening of 6 June 2018.
The following is a full written report from this 12 year girl of her entity encounter;
“The night of June 6th, 2018 me and my family decided to go for a drive up in the hills 5 miles out of Siletz, Oregon. We were out to find wood to make ourselves a bow. My mom’s boyfriend “J” saw some sticks that were perfect for the bows so we cut them off the tree that they were attached to.
Then we went down the road and “J” saw some downed alder that could be used for firewood. I started hearing a faint buzzing noise but put it off as a bug in the car. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw the most bizzare thing ever.
It was about 100 to 120 feet away from my moms car. What I saw was a human looking creature that was about 4 to 5 feet tall with pale grey skin. Its skin was so thin it was almost transparent and it was so skinny. I saw it a total of three times and this was the first. I saw it for about 10 seconds.
When I made eye contact with it everything went silent. The birds stopped chirping, everything was silent. Then it ran away. I told my mom and “J” and we thought ok, we’ll keep an eye out. Then I saw it again. I knew that something was up there. And as I said previously it ran away, but it looked like it came from behind the stump it was standing by.
Then I said “Hey I saw it again I think we should go up there and look around.” We went up there and looked around and then while I was standing where I saw it the first time and I saw it again!
It moved so quickly when it noticed that I saw it. And for moving so quickly it was incredibly quite. I yelled for “J.” “I saw it again!” So we went over to where I saw it the 3rd time and when we were talking it got really quite and voices echoed a lot more than the other places in the woods.
Near the site of the first sighting we found fur that resembled rabbit fur. It was black with brown tints to it and it stunk really bad! After trying to search for tracks we figured that it was to dry for it to leave tracks so we decided to head home.”
I spoke with the primary witness, this 12 year old girl. Very sharp, and sincere about what she saw that evening. I do not think this was a fabricated fantasy, as I could sense the fright and excitement in this young girls voice, which lead me to believe it did happen.
Besides the young 12 year old girl, there were 3 others that experinced the echo and the buzzing sounds; the boyfriend, her mother and her younger sister.
Other than the echo and buzzing sounds, to my knowledge none of these individuals suffered any other physical effects. As for the two listed, I have heard about this in the similar case in Salida, Colorado; A UFO encounter in which the family had the buzzing sound during their encounter.
As for knowing the boyfriend for over 15 years, besides being a combat veteran in Iraq, he is a sound individual and is sincere in what he believes happened and there is no question in his mind that this girl saw this entity in the woods.
All four truly believe this incident occured and I am sure it will be a memorable moment for this 12 year old girl! NOTE: The above drawing is the witness rendering.
VARIETIES OF ALIEN BEINGS KNOWN TO “INTERACT” WITH HUMANS AND SUPPOSEDLY INVOLVED IN INFLUENCING HUMAN AFFAIRS.
ALIEN TYPE 1: The Greys.
Of this type there are several sub-types. All tend to appear greyish in color and for this reason are referred to as “greys.”
GREY TYPE A:
This is the type most commonly referred to as the greys. Also known as Zeta Reticuli from the Zeta Reticulan star system (the Bernard star) neighboring the Orion area.
They function in a mode that is apparently military in nature with a rigidly defined social structure that holds science and “conquering worlds” to be the prime movers. They are normally about 4.5 ft tall with large heads and black “wrap around” eyes.
They have limited facial features, slit mouth and no nose to speak of. They have evolved beyond the need for reproductive systems or digestive systems and reproduce by cloning. Their genetics are partly based on insectoidal genetics.
Their science deals largely with the study of other life forms and genetic engineering. They have supposedly had a part to play in the alteration of human genetics over thousands of years. It seems that they may be trying to cross breed with humans in order to create a “mixture race” that would be better than either.
(I’ve read that they are a dying species, that have cloned so much that now, with each successive cloning, the species grows weaker. They are trying to infuse new life into their species by creating the mixed breed.)
There seem to be two main social classes. One is the more hawkish and is more abrupt, crude and blunt. The more dove-like ones are more refined and capable of a more business-like behavior towards humans, and prefer to use more “diplomatic” behavior to gain control over human’s. This type of Grey is what I believe is being referred to as the “Orange” class of Greys.
They seem to be emotionless (by human standards) and therefore are seen as cruel in their treatment of human beings. They are able to take human lives without any regard for that individual. They apparently can use certain substances of the human body for their sustenance and therefore appear to be carnivorous in regards to humans.
(I also read that they extract fluid from some part of the human brain during intense emotional response [fear] and are able to use it like a recreational drug.) These greys are actually servants to a master race of reptilian-type aliens and are trying to prepare the earth for their arrival by gaining control over the earth through many means.
They tend to enjoy the feeling of freedom they have on earth, away from their masters and would desire the help of humans in confrontations with the reptilians… which appears to be a consideration for the near future (mid 90’s.)
These greys have their best known bases in New Mexico and Nevada but are also known to have bases in many countries of the world.
GREY TYPE B:
Tall Greys from Orion. Usually about 7 to 8 ft. tall (reports often exaggerate their height as being 9 to 12 ft.) with facial feature somewhat similar to grey type A with the exception of the large nose found on type B greys.
These greys also have technologies that allow them to perform certain actions that appear “miraculous.” These greys are less viscous towards humans than type A greys (but are still considered “hostile”.) They tend to influence more through political controls and negotiated agreements with those in power. Their main bases seem to be in the Aleutian Islands. These are the type seen not long ago in Eastern Russia.
GREY TYPE C:
These are the shortest of the greys and tend to be about 3.5 ft. tall. Their facial features are very similar to the Zeta Reticuli greys and are of the same “root race.” They are just as hostile to humans as the Zetas. They are from a star system near the shoulder of Orion called Bellatrax.
ALIEN TYPE 2:
THE REPTILIANS: A genetics akin to reptiles, these are highly advanced entities but viewed as being of a negative, hostile or dangerous disposition since they regard humans as a totally inferior race. They would perceive us much the way we would perceive a herd of cattle.
They are carnivorous in regard to humans. There is supposedly a “driven” planetoid or asteroid inhabited by 30 million of these lizard-folk that is to enter our solar system in the mid 90’s if the present schedule is kept.
They consider earth to be their own ancient outpost and would expect to have complete control of the entire planet upon their return. Their own planet is becoming unable to adequately support life and they need somewhere else to live. These are the aliens who are served by the type A greys.
ALIEN TYPE 3: HUMAN TYPE ALIENS
HUMAN TYPE A:
These are of a genetic base similar to humans of earth. They appear of “normal” height (5-6ft?) and tend to be fair-skinned with blonde hair. These entities have been abducted by the greys or are the offspring of abductees and have been trained by the greys as servants. These entities are totally subservient to the greys. HUMAN TYPE B:
These are aliens of similar genetics to earth humans and also, it seems, of the humans that serve the greys. These are from the Pleiades and are also of the blonde, fair-skinned appearance. This type is of a genuine highly evolved, spiritual, benevolent variety and have a kinship toward humans and are the only aliens to be truly trusted by earth humans at this time.
They had at one time offered to be of assistance to earth leaders in dealing with the alien situation here but were rebuffed and so have taken a kind of “hands off” approach for the time being. These aliens are supposedly the forefather race of humankind. These are apparently not on earth much at this time due to serious problems in the area of their home.
HUMAN TYPE C:
Very little is known about these. They are supposedly another of the highly evolved, spiritual type of great benevolence to earth humans. I understand that their appearance is similar to other human-type aliens. They are from Sirius and don’t appear to be much involved with earth happenings at this time other than being concerned about the Grey scenario. They could desire to be of help to humans.
There are other known human type aliens of this “more highly spiritually evolved” nature that are apparently aware of the situation on earth and considering some possible course of action. These are from Arcturus and Vega.
The following article appeared in the summer 1993 edition (vol. 3 no. 2) issue of UFO Universe magazine.
Non Earth-Born Humans This GROUP consists of three peoples from three distinct colony zones, namely Sirius, Pleiades and Orion. Genetically, they are nearly identical to Earth-born humans with the following exceptions. Abductees refer to these beings as the talls. Males average up to approximately seven feet in height; females, six and a half feet.
They are extremely fine featured, pale in complexion. Eyes are almond shaped, slightly slanted with a natural black liner, much like the renderings of ancient Egyptian royalty. There are three hair colors apparently related to colony origin: blonde (Pleiades), red (Orion), and black (Sirius).
The insignia of these combined human races is a triangular arrangement of three spheres. This symbol has deep significance, and is found throughout Earth history. History records these beings as goddesses, gods, devas, etc. A subgroup of GROUP A females is in command of most Terran projects.
These are Homo Sapiens whose origin is the planet Earth. They can be divided into two separate classes.
[Class A] (Ancient)
These humans were the companions and house servants of a GROUP A military mining and occupation force. When this force left the Earth sometime between 1,000 BC and 3,500 BC, it was decided to remove all humans that had been in close proximity with them.
It was felt that leaving them would only further disrupt normal human development. Class A humans are on an equal level with GROUP A and cooperate fully in all Earth projects.
[Class M] (Modern)
These humans are working on the same cooperative level as Class A. They were taken from the Earth in modern times. During some abduction projects, twins (either identical or fraternal) are induced in a female subject. During the first trimester, one of the fetuses is removed.
It is then grown to maturity by GROUP A. Abductees will meet their twins during some abductions. Very limited contact has been made by these humans.
Genetically Modified Earth-Born Humans
These humans are comprised of two classes and should not be confused with GROUP D Greys.
[Class W] (Workers)
– This class is the smallest in physical stature. They are described as approximately three and a half feet in height, large head and eyes, pale white in complexion. These workers were created by GROUP A through genetic modification of Earth human fetuses.
Their function is to perform menial tasks requiring limited reasoning abilities. In mental capacity, they are equivalent to a five year-old child. They are incapable of violence and, in some cases, are kept as companions by GROUP A individuals.
[Class T] (Technicians)
– These humans are basically the same as Class W. they are slightly larger, at approximately four and a half feet in height. Their complexion is tan or yellowish. Their reasoning and deductive abilities are higher. This allows them to perform more complex operations. They are often seen operating ship controls and in transport activities.
Both Classes W and T are telepathically camouflaged to appear as Greys to abductees. This is done to conceal the true nature of GROUP C. It is felt that perception of GROUP A maintaining a human slave population would hinder future contact efforts. This point will undoubtedly be a source of much heated debate in the near future.
[GROUP D] Greys
Of the six groups discussed in this paper, the Greys appear to represent the only non-human contingent. The following data should be considered tentative at best. Height is approximately five and a half feet. The head is large; eyes large, black and very slanted. Skin color is dark grey and non-porous.
All data so far indicates that they may be a cetacean-based life form. On Earth, this comprises the species of whales and dolphins. Descriptions of Greys’ skin color and texture closely match that of dolphins. The stare and stun effects approximate that performed by dolphins on potential enemies, such as sharks and barracuda.
Human and dolphin fetuses are nearly identical, up to a certain development stage. Some say they share a common genetic ancestor. If so, then this makes the hybridization of humans and dolphins theoretically feasible.
[GROUP E] Human/Grey Hybrids
One of the main ET projects, now in the completion stage, is the hybrid program. The goal of this project is to produce a being combining the best physical and mental qualities of both races. The following description is of a hybrid female, approximately fifteen years old.
Height is five feet, three inches; skin color is pale white/grey. The head is slightly larger and rounder than normal. Hair is dark, high above the forehead, and worn in a very long ponytail. The face is very fine-featured, and attractive.
Like all the beings discussed in this paper, her main method of communication is telepathic. This has allowed a deeper understanding of her intellectual and emotional make-up. They consider themselves human, not Grey, in almost all respects.
They care about the Greys, as any child would a parent, but find them agonizingly boring. The desire for human contact is greater than all others. Their capacity for emotion is as great, if not greater than, humans. Any physical attribute more human than Grey is a great source of pride. Their intellectual capacity is well above human standards. It is very likely they will exceed the capabilities of both races.
[GROUP F] Sasquatch
These have been seen both near, and on-board, UFOs. Little is known about them. Some have speculated that they are the original pre-human species from which Homo Sapiens were derived. NOTE: The above image is CGI
t was around 11 p.m. and I had just got to my friends house and as soon as we get out of his car he points out a little red dot in the sky flying in the SW direction. I said, “ Well that’s obviously a plane.” and as soon as i said that it changes its flight path to NE then back to SE and so it’s going back and forth and my friend and I are just puzzled. I say, “ Holy sh*t i think that’s a real UFO!” We’re standing there staring at this object until it disappears in the blink of an eye only to return even closer in the same speed. Now details were clear to make out, what seemed to be red lights spinning on the bottom as it rotated, the disc shape of the craft, and this was when i realized it was emitting no noise like a jet or helicopter would. The UFO then, what seems like light speed travel, flies to the original spot of finding in an instant and just hovers. It literally just hovered about half a mile away from me. Then it turned on its side and did a barrel roll or flip while hovering in the exact same location. No noise, no flashing lights like planes and helicopters have, no wing like appendages, NOTHING. This breaks every rule of aero dynamics to my knowledge. As we’re standing there talking about it the moment felt like it was over in an instant once it darted out of view in an instant again. I’m sorry for the lack of evidence but i took a video on snapchat that night that i didn’t save only because you couldn’t actually see the craft in it due to the darkness and quality. I now realized the video could’ve backed up my claim to see it at least since you could hear us freaking out and saying,” You can’t even get it on camera it’s moving so fast!” This story is 100% real, I believe what I saw was a UFO weather it be aliens or advanced technology made by the government. Any new sightings will be reported. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Hello my name is Richard, I am writing to see if you might be interested in my true UFO story regarding an encounter with a flying saucer back in 1980? With recent claims regarding the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, I thought I would strike while the iron is hot, I have always intended to make my story available for public scrutiny before my death and I feel like the time is now right to do so.
Let me take you back to December 26TH 1980, a day that would ultimately change and ruin my life forever. It was a bitter cold night and as a serving police officer I was on duty. I was attending to a report of a possible domestic/disturbance/argument in the town of Woodbridge, located in Suffolk, 7 miles north-east of Ipswich in the East of England.
I was roughly about a quarter of a mile away from Woodbridge when for no apparent reason my police radio was suddenly swamped with interference, static electricity and crackling noises started to emerge from it, so I decided to pull my vehicle over to the side of the road and see if I could figure out what the problem was.
No sooner than I had stopped the vehicle there was an intensely bright flash of green light that lit up the whole interior of the car like a christmas tree. (see image)
Not sure what to make of what had just happened. I got out of the car to see if I could possibly figure out what caused it. Not really expecting to see anything I was completely shocked to discover a huge green-whitish, glowing, illuminated, phosphorescent disk/saucer shaped craft hovering directly above me in the sky, it was an incredible and unbelievable but frightening spectacle to witness, my skin started to tingle and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up.
The saucer was huge, slowly rotating and was making a quiet/soft whirring noise. As a police officer I always carried a polaroid camera in the boot of the police vehicle whenever on driving duties, it’s just something that I did.
I rushed to the boot and obtained my camera, I fired off three shots, I then stood there somewhat shaken and continued to view this object. After what felt like an eternity, but was no more than just over a minute or so, the saucer suddenly and without warning soared up high into the night sky at breathtaking and phenomenal speed and was literally gone and out of sight in a nanosecond, I was left standing there thinking to myself what the hell just happened?
Two of the photos came out completely fogged and showed absolutely nothing, but luckily one came out almost perfect and showed the saucer in all it’s glory, I have included that original and untouched polaroid with my email.
The time of my sighting was precisely 1.55 AM. It really was like something out of a star trek movie, to be honest, words are inadequate to even begin to try and explain just how fantastic and how mind blowing this encounter was, and the colour of the saucer, it was like no other green I have ever seen, the photo really doesn’t do it justice, dont get me wrong it’s a wonderful polaroid but to see that saucer hovering in the sky and the sheer size of it, and the phenomenal speed at which it departed, the two simply don’t compare, it was a truly mind blowing experience that no photograph could ever capture.
I had a very difficult time coming to terms with what I encountered on that December evening. Back then in 1980 there was no one to turn to, it’s not like it is today, what with the internet and a simple click of a few buttons and you are instantly online talking to support groups etc, it just wasn’t like that back then, plus I never wanted to tell anyone anyway, I mean would you?
And especially being a serving police officer it just simply wasn’t an option, so I just filed it away in the back of my mind and tried to get on with my life. That wasn’t to be though, soon after my encounter I started suffering with anxiety and panic attacks and clinical depression, I suffered terrible and frightening nightmares also and it wasn’t long before things started to destroy my marriage.
I took time off work but it didn’t help, all I did was drink myself into oblivion and sleep all day. Eventually I confided in my wife and decided to seek professional help. I ended up in therapy, I had a psychiatrist, I was on antidepressants, this whole UFO encounter turned my life upside down and eventually I had to leave the police force on medical grounds and unfortunately I have never worked another day since.
I have suffered with terrible physical and mental health problems ever since this thing happened and I know for a fact that all my health conditions are a direct result of my encounter with a flying saucer, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, not even my worst enemy.
That wasn’t the end of it, I also received menacing and threatening telephone calls, even death threats a few weeks after my encounter and a couple of months later my home was subjected to an attempted arson attack, my wife believed at the time that this was an attempt by someone to try and destroy my photographic evidence and intimidate me into keeping my mouth shut, it certainly was a very unsettling and frightening time.
I can tell you this also, several days after my encounter a very good friend of mine who was a high ranking senior police officer told me that he was visited at home by 3 men claiming to be military intelligence, he said he was simply TOLD in no uncertain terms that if anyone mentions the word UFO then simply tell them that they probably saw the lighthouse and simply tell them it was faulty at the time, he said they gave him other information but he wouldn’t disclose it to me.
I also heard quiet a few strange tales from members of the public in the months that followed my UFO sighting, none of them were ever reported for fear of ridicule, they may sound far fetched to most people but not to me, not after what I saw.
One man told me that on the 28TH December at 3AM he was awoken by his dog barking furiously at the back kitchen door, he said he opened the door and there was a small glowing orb hovering around his back garden, he said the orb shot off and his dog chased after it, suddenly it went silent and when he got around the corner of his garden the orb had fled and all that was left of his dog was a gooey puddle, he claimed his dog had been vaporized, I asked him if he reported it, he just looked at me and laughed and asked me if I was mad.
One woman told me that on the 26TH December at 2.30 AM she woke up and found herself in a forest staring at a glowing pyramid surrounded by several small humanoid entities, within seconds she claims she was suddenly back in her bed. I could tell you more incredible stories I heard and maybe one day when I have more time I will.
For all those individuals out there who simply think that the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident was nothing more than a flying lighthouse or can be explained away by some other ridiculous explanation, let me say this, spare a thought for all those who were caught up in this, it was real, it happened FACT, end of story.
Hopefully one day soon and especially within my lifetime, I hope that all the information the government have including photographic evidence is released and made available to the general public as we all have a right to know the facts and truth as to what really happened in Rendlesham Forest.
I can’t mention any names or say too much, but a very trusted source told me that there are still many witnesses to come forward with their evidence. That person also told me that everyone thinks that the visitors were looking for nuclear weapons, they told me that is complete nonsense and the true explanation is that the visitors had boots on the ground and were doing something in the forest, still yet unknown and one of their team was captured, killed, bagged and tagged by the military and shipped out to a secret location for analysis and to be studied and that’s the reason the visitors were seen for several days, at one point shining beams of light down as they were obviously looking for one of their own.
Makes perfect sense when you think about it, why would a biologically and technologically advanced race of extraterrestrials capable of interstellar and probably intergalactic space travel be interested in such things? That would be like NASA suddenly releasing a statement expressing their interest in caveman technology! I will leave you all with this thought…
THOSE WHO SPEAK DO NOT KNOW, THOSE WHO KNOW DO NOT SPEAK!!!!!
If you are interested in my true story and my photographic evidence and would like to use it for your publication/website etc, then you have my full blessing and permission to do so, all I would say is please keep my name out of the public domain and treat it with the strictest of confidence.
Observed a large black triangle-shaped object hovering over the Pee Dee River in close proximity to the electrical Dam. I observed the object hovering, then began slowly drifting to the West eventually overflying my position continuing in a western trajectory. When the craft overflew my position, I estimated it to be an extremely large craft estimate size of 300 ft. I and my cousin both observed an unusually bright light that appeared to be hovering over the dam near the Pee Dee River. My cousin asked me what did I think it was? I told him that it was probably an airplane heading in our direction which made it appear to be hovering. Then we both noticed that the object appeared to be stationary in the air. I then told him that it was probably a helicopter in a hover over the dam. We proceeded traveling East on Hwy 73. The closer I got the object, it appeared to something other than a helicopter. That part of Hwy 73 East is in a very rural, quiet area, If the object we were observing were a helicopter, we should have been close enough to hear noise from rotor wash…yet we heard nothing. I being a person of logic, then attributed the craft to be a blimp of some sort, but couldn’t find a reason for a blimp to be hovering over the dam. At that time I decided to pull over to satisfy my curiosity and to try to determine what it was that we were observing. As soon as I pulled over, the bright light at the front of the object went out. It was obvious to me that we had been spotted by a person or something inside of the object; I was of the opinion that the occupants of the object were deliberately trying to hide from us. When I exited my car, I saw the dark underbelly of the object. it was huge. I could tell due to it blocking out the stars above. I vaguely recall other people who pulled over to observe it too. The funny thing is that I do not recall talking to them about what we all saw. I do not have any recall of what happed the rest of that night. I am somewhat afraid to find out, but I feel that it must be done. Can you help me to find out? NOTE: The above image is CGI.
Due to recent revelations, I have decided to share my evidence. When I was younger I was a poacher, I lived very close to Rendlesham Forest and frequently went poaching there. So back in 1980, 28TH December I was in the forest poaching.
Now bear this in mind, before this encounter I saw and heard a lot of strange things in that forest. I could tell you stories that would bend your bones, so every time I went poaching I always took my camera always hoping to capture some evidence.
OK so let’s cut to the chase, so I saw a basketball sized red orb, it had a black centre like a pupil and looked just like an eye winking at you, just like Halt explained it.
It was zig zagging between the trees, strange, freaked me out, weird man, proper not right, I saw it before Halt.
It passed me first. Halt and his team was about 200 meters away, I could hear all the noise. Later I saw another UFO it was firing beams of light down to the ground, definitely looking for something, God knows what.
I tell you, what I witnessed was simply incredible, definitely extraterrestrial no two ways about it. You can read books and watch TV shows about it, but I’m telling you man you had to be there to really understand and appreciate just how incredible this thing was, changed my life for ever.
I’ve sat on this information for over 40 years and it feels good to get it out and show the truth. After this thing happened I was followed for weeks, I had my phone tapped, scary time man. Anyway enjoy my photos, these are the real deal!!! Peace and Love from John The Poacher.
It had happened in 1956. Cruising at 19,000 feet, a Navy R7V-2 transport – a four-engine Super-Constellation – was flying west across the Atlantic Ocean. The next stop was Gander, Newfoundland. Final destination, Naval Air Station, Patuxent, Maryland.
The night was clear, visibility unlimited. In the senior pilot’s seat, Commander George Benton was checking the dim-lit instruments. At thirty-four, Benton had a decade of Navy flying behind him. He had made the Atlantic crossing more than two hundred times. Back in the cabin were two extra Navy air crews, en route home from foreign duty.
Most of these men were asleep. Including Benton’s regular and relief crews, there were nearly 30 airmen-pilots, navigators and flight engineers aboard the Constellation. As Commander Benton finished his cockpit check, he glanced out at the stars. Then he leaned forward, puzzled. A few minutes before, the sea below had been dark. Now there was a cluster of lights, like a village, about twenty-five miles ahead.
Benton looked over at his co-pilot, Lieutenant Peter W. Mooney. “What do you make of those lights?” Mooney peered down, startled. “Looks like a small town!” “That’s what I thought.” Benton quickly called the navigator, Lieutenant Alfred C. Erdman. “We must be way off course. There’s land down there.” “It can’t be land.” Erdman hurried forward from his map table. “That last star sight shows…” He broke off, staring down at the clustered lights. “Well?” said Benton. “They must be ships,” said Erdman. “Maybe a rendezvous for some special operation.”
“They don’t look like ships,” said Benton. He called Radioman John Wiggins. No word of any unusual ship movements, Wiggins reported. And no signals from the location of the lights. If they were ships, they were keeping radio silence. “Wake up those other crews,” Benton told Erdman. “Maybe somebody can dope it out.” In a few moments, two or three airmen crowded into the cockpit. Benton cut off the automatic pilot, banked to give them and the men in the cabin a better view.
As the transport began to circle, the strange lights abruptly dimmed. Then several colored rings appeared, began to spread out. One, Benton noticed, seemed to be growing in size. Behind him, someone gave an exclamation. Benton took another look. That luminous ring wasn’t on the surface – it was something rushing up toward the transport. “What the devil is it?” said Mooney. “Don’t know,” muttered Benton. He rolled the Constellation out of its turn to start a full-power climb. Then he saw it was useless. The luminous ring could catch them in seconds.
The glow, he now saw, came from the rim of some large, round object. It reached their altitude, swiftly took shape as a giant disc-shaped machine. Dwarfing the Constellation, it raced in toward them. “It’s going to hit us!” said Erdman. Benton had known normal fear, but this was nightmare. Numbed, he waited for the crash. Suddenly the giant disc tilted. Its speed sharply reduced, it angled on past the port wing. The commander let out his breath. He looked at Mooney’s white face, saw the others’ stunned expressions.
Watching out the port window, he cautiously started to bank. He stopped as he saw the disc. It had swung around, was drawing abreast, pacing them at about one hundred yards. For a moment he had a clear glimpse of the monster. Its sheer bulk was amazing; its diameter was three to four times the Constellation’s wing span. At least thirty feet thick at the center, it was like a gigantic dish inverted on top of another.
Seen at this distance, the glow along the rim was blurred and uneven. Whether it was an electrical effect, a series of jet exhausts or lights from opening in the rim, Benton could not tell. But the glow was bright enough to show the disc’s curving surface, giving a hint of dully reflecting metal. Though Benton saw no signs of life, he had a feeling they were being observed. Fighting an impulse to dive away, he held to a straight course. Gradually, the strange machine pulled ahead.
Tilting its massive shape upward, it quickly accelerated and was lost against the stars. Commander Benton reached for his microphone, called Gander Airport and identified himself. “You show any other traffic out here?” he asked the tower. “We had something on the scope near you,” Gander told him. “But we couldn’t get an answer.”
“We saw it,” Benton said grimly. “It was no aircraft.” He gave the tower a concise report, and back at Gander teletype messages were rushed to the U.S. Air Defense Command, the Commanding Officer, Eastern Sea Frontier, the Director of Air Force Intelligence and the Air Technical Intelligence Center.
When the Constellation landed at Gander, Air Force intelligence officers met the transport. From the start, it was plain they accepted the giant disc sighting as fact. For two hours, Benton and the rest were carefully interrogated[debriefed], separately and together: How close did the object come? What was its size… estimated rate of climb… any electrical interference noted… what happened to the other luminous rings?
From the answers to scores of questions, the majority opinion emerged. The flying disc was between 350 and 400 feet in diameter, and apparently metallic. No interference with ignition noted; instruments not observed and radio not operating during this brief period. Time for the giant disc to climb to the transport’s altitude, between five and eight seconds, indicated speed between 1,400 and 2,200 knots; the disc had accelerated above this speed on departure.
Not all the men in the cabin had seen the luminous rings. Of those who had, most were watching the huge disc approach and did not see the “rings” disappear. If they, too, were flying discs, in a rendezvous as some suggested, they apparently had raced off while the other one was checking on the Constellation. At one point, an Intelligence captain asked Benton if he had seen any indication of life abroad the disc.
“No, but it was intelligently controlled, that’s certain. Benton looked at him closely. “That size, it would hardly be remote-controlled, would it?” “I couldn’t say,” replied the Air Force man. Nor would he tell what the Gander Airport radar had shown about the disc’s speed and maneuvers. “What’s behind all this?” demanded Mooney. “Up to now, I believed the Air Force. You people say there aren’t any flying saucer…”
“Sorry, I can’t answer any questions,” said the captain. “Why not? After a scare like that, we’ve got a right to know what’s going on.” The Intelligence officer shook his head. “I can’t answer any questions,” he repeated. As quickly as possible, intelligence reports with full details were flashed to the four Defense commanders already notified, with an extra message for the Director of Naval Intelligence.
After the Constellation reached Patuxent, the air crews were interviewed [debriefed] again, by Navy order. Each man made a written report, with his opinion of what he had seen. Five days later, Commander Benton had a phone call from a scientist in a high government agency. “I’m informed you had a close-up UFO sighting. I’d like to see you.”
Benton checked, found the man was cleared by the Navy. Next day, the scientist appeared, showed his credential, listened intently to Benton’s report. Then he unlocked a dispatch case and took out some photographs. “Was it like any of these?” At the third picture, Benton stopped him. “That’s it!” He looked sharply at the scientist. “Somebody must know the answers, if you’ve got photographs of the things.”
The other man took the pictures. “I’m sorry, Commander.” He closed his dispatch case and left. At the time when I (Donald Keyhoe) learned of this case, I had served for two years as Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.
Around sunset at 8pm on the 10th, I sat on my back porch enjoying the warm weather because it was a nice breeze. I was looking up toward the sky in a nice relaxed mindset thinking about the previous nights encounter of a strange light that I managed to take pictures of. All of the sudden out of no where a bright orange light overhead appeared from thin air stayed for maybe half a minute and then disappeared.
I shouted at the door for my mom to come to see but by the time she got there it had gone. A couple minutes later it appeared and seconds later a roar of a jet engine which sounded military appeared. The object appeared further south west in a straight line from it’s first appearance. The jet seemed to be circling the area and followed the path southwest, the timing made it seem like it was giving chase to something, the object appeared one more time just in eyesight of the tree line and then it was gone and the jet took off.
I never saw the jet but from the sound it made it was putting out some serious power. The object itself made no noise and we have a airport not far so I’m used to hearing planes. I looked through the recent UFO reports and their was a similar sighting with a picture in NJ. The pictures I am providing are from the previous night which include a strange triangle shape anomaly.
A coworker and I were closing the video store where we worked at the time, on a warm night in the summer of 1996. I’m not sure of the month/ year but it was after 95 and before 97, it’s a little fuzzy to me I can’t seem to remember a lot of details about it. But I digress. My coworker took the garbage out the back of the store to put in the dumpsters. She came running back 10 seconds later and said you have to see this. I then don’t remember where she was once she told me to come look. I don’t know if she ran Into the store or if she was looking out the back door with me. As I looked up at a huge UFO that took up my entire view!!!! Because it was so low and close to the top of the building and dumpsters were located in a little bowl type depression in the back of the store. It moved so slowly that I could’ve walked with a child beside it and kept pace with it. I was afraid to step out and down to the pavement to look at it, afraid of being beamed up. It was not even 20 feet above me! I try to remember every tiny detail the lights, the depressions and it even looked as if there were 2 spots on the bottom where it might dock into something else. It was pretty large. I watched it go over my head as I hung out the door still afraid to step out. As it went over the top of the building I yelled quick run through the store, let’s run out front and see it come over! We then bolted as fast as we could the 40 feet from the back of the store to the front of the store and out ran outside. I swear that ship never came over the top of that building! It was just gone and all there was were stars! I have a fog about it. I can’t remember a lot of details I don’t know if I was taken. But the next day I told another coworker what had happened afraid to say anything for fear of ridicule, but he told me that he and a friend had followed a UFO from the southside of Connellsville in our town to the shopping center where I worked and then they lost it! I was the manager of the store. I worked there for 6 or 7 years. I hired and fired people and I cannot to this day remember the full name of the guy that worked with me who chased the ship and I cannot remember the name or the face of the girl who was with me the night that we saw it at the store. I only know she was blonde. I really wish I could be hypnotized so that I could remember in detail what happened. NOTE: The above image is real but from another case file.
We’ve got an object that appears every night around the same time, hovering stationary but moves in several directions at short distances and always returns back to its original location. It appears to blend in with the star light, staying stationary for several minutes before it starts to move. It changes colors, but it seems to have a blinking strobe light. It will stay there for several hours before it eventually moves below the tree line. It cannot be a drone since no drone can hover that high in the sky, nor can it hover for more than 3 hours. It seems to be in orbit with the earth and stays equilaterally distant with the moon as well. When looking at it through my telescope, it actually orbits about the same speed as the moon’s orbital speed, almost as if it were pacing it.
This object has appeared every night for several years and we cannot figure out what the hell it is. I called Barksdale AFB in Bossier City, LA, and they hung up on me every time. I must sound like a loon, but I’m telling you it’s real. I had my wife witness it for several nights, as I also had an old Army buddy visit me from Oregon, and he witnessed it as well. Whatever it is, it’s not going away anytime soon. The first time I noticed it was in 2019 August. It also had a secondary object cross its path as if it were a shooting star, but it travelled much slower. It was also much fainter. Video was taken using a Cannon DSLR Rebel Ti3 hooked to a Celestron PowerSeeker 80mm f/11 EQ Refractor Telescope. The video shows the object moving up to the left but in reality, it is actually moving down and to the right behind the tree line. The setup did not move at all, so the object did move back and forth a little in that particular shot as it was moving along its apparent orbital path.
KENS NOTE: The two photos above were extracted from the video.
Back in 1980 my mum lived in Suffolk in the East of England. Late in the evening on December 24, 1980 (Christmas Eve) she had just finished making final preparations for Christmas Day and went into the back garden to put some rubbish into the bin.
Whilst in the back garden my mum saw 4 extremely bright glowing objects in the night sky, after observing the objects she went back inside and got her camera and took a couple of photographs. She then stood and watched the objects for roughly a further one minute before they all simply blinked out and vanished from sight.
My mum never told anyone about what she saw, she always kept it to herself. It was 3 years later when she read the newspaper article about UFOS witnessed by USAF military personnel in Rendlesham Forest written in the News Of The World that she realized that what she saw and photographed 3 years earlier was probably and more than likely something to do with and connected to with what Colonel Charles Halt and his men witnessed.
My mum always thought that it was simply too much of a coincidence not to be related, and let’s face it, within hours of my mums sighting Halt and his men were running around the forest chasing UFOS.
My mum now lives in a care home and is suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. As an individual who does not wish to speak out publicly regarding my mum’s UFO sighting, debate the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident with anyone, or speak to UFO researchers and UFO investigators, after much careful thought and consideration, I have decided to release this photograph to a list of credible and seriously minded people and UFO organizations I have compiled so that it can be made available for research purposes and so that the photograph and my mum’s UFO sighting can be made available to those who have an interest in the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects.
This photograph which clearly shows the objects that my mum saw has never been seen by anyone except for a few close family members and this is the first time in over 40 years that my mum’s story has ever been told.
Whatever the truth is regarding the now infamous Rendlesham Forest UFO incident and what Colonel Charles Halt and other USAF military personnel witnessed in Rendlesham forest all those years ago is, is at present still unknown and is still debated to this day.
Whether the objects that Halt and his men witnessed were something natural, man-made or possibly something even of an extraterrestrial origin as many have speculated, again is still yet unknown and is still debated to this day, and exactly the same can be said about the objects that my mum witnessed and photographed.
However, one thing that I can say without a shadow of a doubt and with absolute certainty, is that whatever the objects were that my mum witnessed and photographed were, in no way, shape or form any kind of lighthouse beam.
My mum’s UFO sighting and photographic evidence may not provide any conclusive answers regarding the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, and might even be completely unconnected and have nothing to do with it.
However, I believe it is a huge and extremely important piece of the puzzle and does indeed prove that Unidentified Flying Objects of a yet unknown origin were infact present in the skies above Suffolk around the Christmas period of 1980.
My mum was never interested in the UFO subject, however, she did read about the Rendlesham Forest case and was firmly convinced that what she saw was other-worldly, she was also of the mindset that both the American and British Government covered the whole thing up and know far more than everyone has been led to believe.
Editor’s Note: A big thank you to the lady who submitted this most interesting report, along with the photograph.
That afternoon I was in an architecture exercise abroad at the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, Morelia, Mexico. I looked east by chance and over the pines, high up, I could see the object. Due to the exercise we did, I brought my Nikon Coolpix L120 camera with me so I took it and tried to focus to take pictures, the exact time was 6:48 pm on March 6 so the light was poor and I struggled to focus on the object. I was able to take 6 photos, the best I achieved when I zoomed in, I was only able to take 6 photos and although the camera had a video option, I did not do it out of emotion. The object was flying in a circular pattern, when I observed it, I could see a flash on the object’s belly only once, it looked tilted 45 degrees while moving in a circular pattern and lowering the height, at one point it straightened and almost made it high Overall. At that moment I was able to zoom in with the camera and get the best photo, it only lasted a few seconds and began to climb. Although there were many people around me because of the emotion, I did not notify anyone, I only dedicated myself to taking the photos.
In the close-up photo, an open hatch appears to be observed, there appears to be a humanoid figure poking out of the hatch and what appears to be a flame is observed below the humanoid figure. I sent the photos to a program in Mexico called Tercer Milenio and when they observed that supposed flame they answered me that it was a cantoya balloon [ CHINESE LANTERN ] but those balloons do not fly at 45 degrees and if the wind tilts them the flame would burn it since it would remain vertical making contact with the paper. I made an over position of two images using as a reference the cracks in the wall of a building to appreciate the movements that I mention in this description.
REDFIELD, S.D. — A young truck driver who said he “never held any stock in flying saucer stories” told Wednesday of seeing a huge object in the sky that changed colors and moved with tremendous speed.
Others, including three newspapermen, also reported seeing the object at great distance.
Marlen Hewitt, driver for a dairy here, told this story of wacthing the object as he drove a tank truck from Pelican Rapids, Minn., to Redfield:
“It was about 1:15 when I first spotted it as I drove along. At first I thought it was a star, I’ve never seen a star that bright. There were other stars out at the time, and only a few high clouds in the sky.
“As I went on down the road toward Graceville, it changed colors a couple of times. Near Graceville, it changed colors four times.
“I thought my eyes were playing tricks with me. I stopped, turned off the lights and got out of the truck to stretch my legs. As I rounded the back of the truck, this thing swooped down about a half mile to the east of me and stopped about 1,000 feet up.
“I was very frightened — I was terrified.
“If it had been on the ground, it would have covered about a square block. It looked to be about 12 feet thick. It was a slate gray color, and from the distance looked like it was metal. It was round, and at the base was an opening about 1/10th the size of the object from which a very brilliant light was shining.
“It would tilt around and back and forth, gaining maybe 3,000 or 4,000 feet in the flick of any eye.
“Around the edge of this thing was a lighted outline. I couldn’t tell if there were windows in the lighted part or if there was exhaust coming out all around it.
“It would change colors from a blue-white to orange to red. I wanted to get out of there, so I jumped back into the truck and turned on the lights.
“When my lights went on, the thing turned a bright cherry red and shot up into the high clouds. It moved faster than anything I ever saw.
“As I drove toward Ortonville, it dropped down and went to the southwest at a tremendous rate of speed. Then it stopped and hovered.
“I could still see the light in the cloud when I got to Ortonville, and some editors who were going hunting came out of an eating place and watched it with me.
“After I got to Big Stone City, it came down out of the clouds again, further away but still changing colors.”
Hewitt said the object disappeared about five hours after he had first spotted the bright light in the sky. He had traveled about 150 miles in the meantime.
He said the roads were “very deserted” at the time and that as far as he knew the only others to see the object were those at Ortonville.
Hewitt said the object mde no noise. He added there was a little wind at the time the object was at its lowest level and it seemed to move into and away from the wind with equal speed.
Among the hunters who saw the object at Ortonville were three newspapermen, Lem Kaercher of the Ortonville Independent and Don and Dick Olson of the Marshall Messenger. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
B.C. and his fiancee were riding their Harley Davidson through the southern Sierra Nevada’s, in what is now Lake Isabella, California. They found an old dirt road that led down to the dry lakebed and pulled off the main highway to take some random scenic shots. Neither of them saw anything out of the ordinary at the time.

This highly unusual photo has been in my family since before I was born. It filled me with curiosity during my childhood years. As I grew older I had my doubts about it being a real picture, but remained curious over the years. On my 27th birthday my father came by my apartment and gave me a birthday card that included the original color slide of this UFO image.
My father carefully explained how this photograph was shot by a friend of his named B.C., who did not actually see the UFO at the time he took the picture! It wasn’t until B.C. received the box of color slides he had shot that he noticed one picture with an image of a sideways, saucer-shaped UFO which appeared to be parked above an old oak tree.
According to my father, B.C.’s first reaction was that someone at the “Kodak” film lab must have been playing a trick on him. When B.C. showed the color slide to my father, he believed it was worth further examination. My father explained to B.C. how he had gone to some of the UFO meetings that were held at Giant Rock airport out in the Mojave Desert during the early 1950’s and that he believed something was definitely going on. At that time, they were both members of the Self-Realization Fellowship and had heard their guru, Parmahansa Yoganada, say that he believed there was life on other planets.
After having some copies and enlargements made, my father decided to take the original slide to the Los Angeles office of Time Life Magazine. It was in their possession for a few days before they concluded that the photo was authentic. According to their tests, it was not a lens flare, an acid splash or a double exposure. Oddly enough, they were instructed by their main office in New York not to run the story or the photo. They claimed it was not their policy to do so. I find this highly unusual considering that Life Magazine had published clear black and white UFO photos in the early 1950’s.
I decided to research if someone could possibly take a photo of something that was invisible to the naked eye. I discovered that our eyes only see a very small amount of the infrared, or ultra-violet radiation around us. Only about one octave of the available vibrations (wavelengths) is registered by our normal consciousness.
Film is much more sensitive to the other more subtle energies on our environment. Judging by the colors around the ’57 UFO it is mostly vibrating in the infrared range. Another possible theory is that a field of rotating energy surrounding the craft absorbs photons from bouncing back and registering on the observer’s eye.
Those are some of the logical explanations, and yet, as illogical as it sounds I have seen UFOs become invisible on more than one occasion during the day and night – both in and out of the city with and without witnesses. Now you see it… now UFO don’t!
Dr. Elmer Green is a physicist who worked just northeast of Lake Isabella for the Naval Ordinance Test Center, at China Dry Lake, from 1947 to 1957. He frequently heard about encounters with UFOs that would fly into range of their observation cameras. Many times while range testing new weapons systems, good quality films were made of UFOs.
He personally saw black and white still shots of UFOs that were taken by other scientists in his work group. While telling his story to scientist and author Richard Thompson, Dr. Green claimed that he knew of some 40 to 50 professional people who had some connection with UFO sightings during weapons testing at China Lake.
Dr. Green had even experienced a clear UFO sighting with the base’s photographic officer, Jack Clemente while watching an AJ Bomber coming in for a landing. According to Dr. Green, “As the airplane flew over, we saw an object about 16 feet in diameter flying about 400 feet below the bomber.
The object seemed to be a structured, mechanical craft. It had a semi-circular forward section that was amber colored. In the blink of an eye, the UFO flipped up to the wing of the plane. It remained there, pacing the plane for a few seconds and then it flew away at great speed vanishing from sight in 2 or 3 seconds.”
Dr. Green noticed that even though UFOs looked mechanical, they often seemed to perform beyond the laws of physics. Even though they could move faster than the speed of sound, they did not produce a sonic boom. Dr. Green compared these maneuvers to a spotlight projected on the wall and he considered that they might be real physical structures that were somehow being projected into our space-time.
Dr. Green also noted that during his early years at China Lake in 1947, many UFOs were sighted and that he would also regularly see the flashes from atomic bomb air bursts at the Nevada test site nearby. Some of Dr. Green’s co-workers even speculated that there might be a connection between all the UFO activity and the frequent atomic testing.
After showing the ‘57 UFO photo to a senior U.S. space engineer who has helped design many of our latest and greatest spacecraft including the Space Shuttle, I was given the following explanation:
Ambient interstellar light saturates our atmosphere and becomes polarized to our earth’s relative north/south rotation. This angle of rotation is given a relative 90 degree value which can be considered a phase that is unique to all other phases – such as a note on a scale of musical vibrations.
As a UFO enters our atmosphere, its relative 90-degree north/south rotation will occasionally align with our Earth’s polarity phase in harmony. During these brief moments of energy alignment UFOs become visible as bright lights or shiny metallic surfaces. This particular UFO is standing on edge, with its polarized energy field 90û out of phase from our Earth’s own polarized energy field.
When Life Magazine decided not to publish this authenticated UFO photo, my father left the original slide sitting unprotected in the desk drawer of his office which had a leak in the skylight. Over the years, mold grew on the film, but fortunately the original image of the UFO has remained intact.
Even though this picture is very old it still tells the story of the future – the implications of which are enormous. I believe sometime in the future, the beings that operate these cosmic craft will reveal themselves and awaken all those who are still sleep waking through life. A wise man once said, “Ignorance is bliss… enjoy it while you can.”
An Air Force RB-47, equipped with electronic countermeasures (ECM) gear and manned by six officers, was followed by an unidentified object for a distance of well over 700 miles, and for a time period of 1.5 hr., as it flew from Mississippi, through Louisiana and Texas and into Oklahoma.
The object was, at various times, seen visually by the cockpit crew as an intensely luminous light, followed by ground-radar and detected on ECM monitoring gear aboard the RB-47.
Of special interest in this case are several instances of simultaneous appearances and disappearances on all three of those physically distinct “channels,” and rapidity of maneuvers beyond the prior experience of the aircrew.
Introduction In the early morning hours of July 17, 1957, an RB-47 was flying out of Forbes Air Force Base, Topeka, Kansas, on a composite mission that included gunnery exercises over the Texas-Gulf area, navigation exercises over the open Gulf, and finally ECM exercises scheduled for the return trip across the south-central United States.
The RB-47 was carrying a sixman crew, of whom three were electronic warfare officers manning ECM gear in the aft portion of the aircraft. Their names are as follows: Lewis D. Chase, pilot; James H. McCoid, copilot; Thomas H. Hanley, navigator; John J. Provenzano, No. 1 monitor; Frank B. McClure, No. 2 monitor; Walter A. Tuchscherer. No. 3 monitor.
I shall draw upon my interview with the crew as well as case files which I finally located.
The files consist of a three-page TWX filed from the 745th ACWRON, Duncanville, Texas, at 1557Z on July 17, 1957, and a four-page case summary prepared by E.T. Piwetz, Wing Intelligence Officer, 55th Reconnaissance Wing, Forbes AFB, and transmitted to ADC Hq., Ent AFB, Colorado, in compliance with a request of August 15, from Col. F. T. Jeep, Director of Intelligence, ADC. That summary, plus a 12-page Airborne Observer’s Data Sheet, was forwarded on November 17 from ADC to Blue Book, and was evidently the first notification Project Blue Book received concerning this case.
The 12-page Data Sheet (AISOP #2) was prepared by Major Chase on September 10, and contains a number of points of relevance not covered in other parts of the case file. There is very relevant information in the case file as to precise times, locations, and other circumstances, and the case file does have the great virtue of representing a summary account prepared while all of the details were fresh in the minds of the crew.
Before describing the first ECM contact, it is necessary to explain briefly the nature of the ECM gear involved in this case. (Details are no longer classified, although all of the basic case-file documents were initially SECRET.)
This RB-47 had three passive direction-finding (DF) radarmonitors for use in securing coordinate information and pulse characteristics on enemy ground-based radar.
The #2 monitor, manned by McClure, was an ALA-6 DF-receiver with back-to-back antennas in a housing on the belly of the RB-47 near the tail spun at 150 or 300 rpm as it scanned an azimuth. (Note that this implies ability to scan at 10/sec past a fixed ground radar in the distance.)
It’s frequency range was 1000-7500 MHz. Inside the aircraft, the signals from the ALA-6 were processed in an APR-9 radar receiver and an ALA-5 pulse-analyzer. All subsequent references to the #2 monitor imply that system.
Number 1 Monitor The #1 monitor, manned by Provenzano, was an APD-4 DF system, with a pair of antennas permanently mounted on either wing tip. It was working at a higher frequency. The #3 monitor, with a frequency range from 30-1000 MHz, was manned by Tuchscherer.
It was not affected and will not be described here. VHF communications were likewise not affected.
For emphasis, it needs to be stressed that the DF receivers are not radars and do not emit a signal for reflection off a distant target. They only listen passively to incoming radar signals and analyze signatures and other characteristics. When receiving a distant radar set’s signal, the scope displays a pip or strobe at an azimuthal position corresponding to the relative bearing in the aircraft coordinate system.
For the case of a fixed ground radar, approached from one side, the strobe is initially seen in the upper part of the scope and moves down-scope, a point to be carefully noted in interpreting the following discussion.
Having completed the navigational exercises over the Gulf, Chase headed across the Mississippi coastline, flying at an altitude of 34,500 ft, at about Mach 0.75 (258 kt IAS=500 mph TAS).
The weather was perfect and practically cloudless under the influence of a large high-pressure area extending throughout the troposphere.
There were no showers or thunderstorms anywhere along the flight route. Shortly after the coast near Gulfport was crossed at a point marked A on the map on page 00, McClure detected on the #2 monitor a signal painting at their 5 o’clock position (aft of the starboard beam). It looked to him as if he were receiving a legitimate ground-radar signal.
Upon noting that the strobe was moving up-scope, McClure tentatively decided that it must be a ground radar off to their northwest painting with 180 deg ambiguity for some electronic reason.
But when the strobe, after sweeping up-scope on the starboard side, crossed the flight path of the RB-47 and proceeded to move down-scope on the port side McClure said he gave up the hypothesis of 180 deg ambiguity as incapable of explaining such behavior.
Fortunately, he had examined the signal characteristics on his ALA-5 pulse-analyzer, before the signal left his scope on the port side aft.
In discussing it with me, his recollection was that the frequency was near 2800 mcs, and he recalled that what was particularly odd was that it had a pulse-width and pulse repetition frequency (PRF) much like that of a typical S-band, ground-based, search radar.
He even recalled that there was a simulated scan rate that was normal. Perhaps because of the strong similarities to ground-based sets such as the CPS-6B, widely used at that time, McClure did not, at that juncture, call this signal to the attention of anyone else in the aircraft.
The #1 monitor was not working the frequency in question, it later developed. The #3 monitor was incapable of working the frequency in question, McClure and the others indicated to me.
I next quote information transcribed from the summary report prepared by the Wing Intelligence Officer, COMSTRATRECONWG 55, Forbes Air Force Base, concerning this part of the incident that involved this aircraft (call sign “Lacy 17”):
ECM reconnaissance operator #2 of Lacy 17, RB-47H aircraft, intercepted at approximately Meridian, Mississippi, a signal with the following characteristics: frequency 2995 mc to 3000 mc; pulse width of 2.0 microseconds; pulse repetition frequence of 600 cps; sweep rate of 4 rpm; vertical polarity. Signal moved rapidly up the D/F scope indicating a rapidly moving signal source; i.e an airborne source. Signal was abandoned after observation …
Initial Visual Contact If nothing further had occurred on that flight to suggest that some unusual object was in the vicinity of the RB-47, McClure’s observations undoubtedly would have gone unmentioned and would have been quickly forgotten even by him. He was puzzled, but at that point still inclined to think that it was some electronic difficulty.
The flight plan called for a turn to the west in the vicinity of Meridian and Jackson, Mississippi (Point B), with subsequent planned exercises wherein the EWOs did simulated ECM runs against known ground radar units.
The contemporary records confirm what Chase and McCoid described to me far more vividly and in more detail concerning the unusual events that soon ensued.
They turned into a true heading of 265 deg, still at Mach 0.75 at 34,500 ft. At 1010Z (0410 CST), Major Chase, in the forward seat, spotted what he first thought were the landing lights of another jet coming in fast from near his 11 o’clock position at, or perhaps a bit above, the RB-47’s altitude.
He called McCoid’s attention to it, noted absence of any navigational lights, and as the single intense bluish-white light continued to close rapidly, he used the intercom to alert the rest of the crew to be ready for sudden evasive maneuvers.
But before he could attempt evasion, he and McCoid saw the brilliant light almost instantaneously change direction and flash across their flight path from port to starboard at an angular velocity that Chase told me he had never seen matched in all of his 20 years of flying, before or after that incident. The luminous source had moved with great rapidity from their 11 o’clock to about their 2 o’clock position and then blinked out.
The Airborne Observer’s Data Sheet filled out by Chase as part of the post-interrogation gives the RB-47 position at the time of that 1010Z first visual contact as 32-00N, 91-28W, which puts it near Winnsboro in east-central Louisiana (Point C).
The descriptions obtained in the 1969 interviews with these officers are closely supported by the original intelligence report:
At 1010Z aircraft cmdr first observed a very intense white light with light blue tint at 11 o’clock from his aircraft, crossing in front to about 2:30 o’clock position, copilot also observed passage of light to 2:30 o’clock where it apparently disappeared.
Chase did not observe any magnetic compass anomalies during the flight.
Actions over Louisiana — Texas Area Immediately after the luminous source blinked out, Chase and McCoid began talking about it on the interphone, with the already alerted crew listening in. McClure, recalling the unusual signal he had received on his ALA-6 back near Gulfport, now mentioned for the first time that peculiar incident and concurrently set his #2 monitor to scan at about 3000 mcs, to see what might show up.
He found he was getting a strong 3000 mcs signal from about their 2 o’clock position, just the relative bearing at which the unknown luminous source had blinked out moments earlier.
Provenzano told me that immediately after that they checked out the #2 monitor on other known ground-radar stations, to be sure that it was not malfunctioning; it appeared to be in perfect working order. He then tuned his own #1 monitor to 3000 mcs and also got a signal from the same bearing.
There remained, of course, the possibility that, just by chance, this signal was from a real radar down on the ground and off in that relative direction. But as the minutes went by and the RB-47 continued westward at about 500 mph, the relative bearing of the 3000 mcs source out in the dark did not move down-scope on the monitors as should have occurred with any ground radar, but instead kept up with the RB-47, holding a fixed relative bearing.
I found these and ensuing portions of the entire episode still vivid in the minds of all the men, although their recollections for various details varied somewhat, depending on the particular activities in which they were then engaged.
Chase varied speed, going to maximum allowed power, but nothing seemed to change the relative bearing of the 3000-mcs source. They crossed Louisiana and headed into eastern Texas, with the object still maintaining station with them.
Eventually they got into the radar-coverage area of the 745th ACWRON, Duncanville, Texas, and Chase dropped his earlier reluctance about calling attention to these peculiar matters and contacted that station (code name “Utah”).
The crew was becoming uneasy about the incident by this time, several of them remarked to me. That phase of the incident is tersely described in the following quotes from the report of the Wing Intelligence Officer:
Aircraft comdr notified crew and ECM operator Nr 2 searched for signal described above, found same approximately 1030Z at a relative bearing of 070 degrees; 1035Z, relative bearing of 068 degrees; 1038Z, relative bearing 040 degrees.
Note that the above time would indicate that McClure did not immediately think of making his ALA-6 check, but rather that some 20 min went by before that was thought of. Note also that by 1038Z the unknown source of the 3000 mcs radarlike signal was moving up – scope relative to the 500 mph RB-47.
The Wing Intelligence Officer continued:
At 1039Z aircraft comdr sighted huge light which he estimated to be 5000 below aircraft at about 2 o’clock. Aircraft altitude was 34,500 ft, weather perfectly clear. Although aircraft comdr could not determine shape or size of object, he had a definite impression light emanated from top of object. At about 1040Z ECM operator #2 reported he then had two signals at relative bearings of 040 and 070 deg. Aircraft comdr and copilot saw these two objects at the same time with same red color.Aircraft comdr received permission to ignore flight plan and pursue object. He notified ADC site Utah and requested all assistance possible. At 1042Z ECM #2 had one object at 020 deg relative bearing.
In my interviews with the aircrew, I found differences between the recollections of the various men as to some of these points. McCoid recalled that the luminous source occasionally moved abruptly from starboard to port side and back again.
Chase recalled that they had contacted Utah (his recollection was that it was Carswell GCI, however) prior to some of the above events and that Utah was ground-painting the target during the time it moved up-scope and reappeared visually. As will be seen below, the contemporary account makes fairly clear that Utah was not painting the unknown until a bit later, after it had turned northwestward and passed between Dallas and Ft. Worth.
Chase explained to me that he got FAA clearance to follow it in that off-course turn (Point D) and indicated that FAA got all jets out of the way to permit him to maintain pursuit. The Intelligence summary continues:
At 1042Z ECM #2 had one object at 020 deg relative bearing. Aircraft comdr increased speed to Mach 0.83, turned to pursue, and object pulled ahead. At 1042.5Z ECM #2 again had two signals at relative bearings of 040 and 070 deg. At 1044Z he had a single signal at 050 deg relative bearing. At 1048Z ECM #3 was recording interphone and command position conversations. ADC site requested aircraft to go IFF Mode III for positive identification and then requested position of object. Crew reported position of object as 10 n. mi. northwest of Ft. Worth. Texas, and ADC site Utah immediately confirmed presence of objects on their scopes. At approximately 1050Z object appeared to stop, and aircraft overshot. Utah reported they lost object from scopes at this time, and ECM #2 also lost signal.
Chase, in reply to my questions, indicated that it was his recollection that there was simultaneity between the moment when he began to sense that he was getting closure at approximately the RB-47 speed, and the moment when Utah indicated that their target had stopped on their scopes. He said he veered a bit to avoid colliding with the object, not then being sure what its altitude was relative to the RB-47, and then found that he was coming over the top of it as he proceeded to close.
At the instant that it blinked out visually and disappeared simultaneously from the #2 monitor and from the radar scopes at Site Utah, it was at a depression angle relative to his position of something like 45 deg.
Chase put the RB-47 into a port turn in the vicinity of Mineral Wells, Texas (Point E), and he and McCoid looked over their shoulders to try to spot the luminous source again. All of the men recalled the near simultaneity with which the object blinked on again visually, appeared on the #2 scope, and was again skin-painted by ground radar at Site Utah. The 1957 report describes these events as follows:
Aircraft began turning, ECM #2 picked up signal at 160 deg relative bearing, Utah regained scope contact, and aircraft comdr regained visual contact. At 1052Z ECM #2 had signal at 200 deg relative bearing, moving up his D/F scope.Aircraft began closing on object until the estimated range was 5 n. mi. At this time object appeared to drop to approximately 15,000 ft altitude, and aircraft comdr lost visual contact. Utah also lost object from scopes. At 1055Z in the area of Mineral Wells, Texas, crew notified Utah they must depart for home station because of fuel supply. Crew queried Utah whether a CIRVIS Report had been submitted, and Utah replied the report had been transmitted.At 1057Z ECM #2 had signal at 300 deg relative bearing, but Utah had no scope contact. At 1058Z aircraft comdr regained visual contact of object approximately 20 n. mi. northwest of Ft. Worth, Texas, estimated altitude 20,000 ft at 2 o’clock from aircraft.
Chase added further details on this portion of the events, stating that he requested and secured permission from Utah to dive on the object when it was at lower altitude.
He did not recall the sudden descent that is specified in the contemporary account, and there are a number of other minor points in the Intelligence Report that were not recollected by any of the crew.
He told me that when he dove from 35,000 ft to approximately 20,000 ft the object blinked out, disappeared from the Utah ground-radar scopes, and disappeared from the #2 monitor, all at the same time. McClure recalled that simultaneous disappearance, too.
It should be mentioned that the occasional appearance of a second visual and radar-emitting source was not recalled by any of the officers when I interviewed them in 1969.
Actions over Texas — Oklahoma Area McCoid recalled that, at about this stage of the activities, he was becoming a bit worried about excess fuel consumption resulting from use of maximum allowed power, plus a marked departure from the initial flight plan.
He advised Chase that fuel limitations would necessitate a return to the home base at Forbes AFB, so they soon headed north from the Ft. Worth area (Point F). McClure and Chase recalled that the ALA-6 system again picked up a 3000 mcs signal on their tail, once they were northbound from Ft. Worth but there was some variance in their recollections as to whether the ground radar concurrently painted the object.
McCoid was unable to fill in any of those details. Fortunately the 1957 Intelligence Report summarized further events in this part of the flight, as they moved northward into Oklahoma:
At 1120Z aircraft took up heading for home station. This placed area of object off the tail of aircraft. ECM #2 continued to [get] D/F signal of object between 180 and 190 deg relative bearing until 1140Z, when aircraft was approximately abeam Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.At this time, signal faded rather abruptly. 55 SRW DOI [55th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, Director of Intelligence] has no doubt the electronic D/F’s coincided exactly with visual observations by aircraft comdr numerous times, thus indicating positively the object being the signal source.
It was Chase’s recollection that the object was with them only into southern Oklahoma; Hanley recalled that it was with them all the way to Oklahoma City area (Point G); the others remembered only that it was there for some indefinite distance on the northbound leg between Ft. Worth and Topeka, their home base.
Blue Book The records indicate that Project Blue Book received summary information on this incident from ADC on Oct. 25, 1957 (over two months after occurrence of the event). A “Brief Summary” ends with the following paragraph:
In joint review with the CAA of the data from the incident, it was definitely established by the CAA that object observed in the vicinity of Dallas and Ft. Worth was an airliner.
This refers to a near-collision of two DC-6 American Airliners near Salt Flats, Texas, 50 mi. from El Paso at 14,000 ft at 3:30 a.m. of this day. (See the map on page 68.) The case is now carried in the official Blue Book files as “Identified as American Airlines Flight 655.” NOTE: The above image is CGI.
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/
