A Separate Reality (Aerial Phenomena)

 

Reality,  “The state of things as they actually exist”    

“The negative social implications associated with considering or discussing an alternative to our perceived reality, is such, that people have this remarkable ability to totally disregard any factual evidence or visual experience that does not conform to their conceived ideas of reality”. This being the case, to put forth facts and admissions of UFO existence by renowned scientist, Politicians, Presidents and high ranking military defence personnel  seems fruitless, but hopefully after reading the below statements and pertinent information some readers may start to believe that what we have been lead to believe about the UFO phenomena (In fact most aspects of history) has been no more than a manipulation of media and a cauldron of lies.

There are literally millions of UFO reports worldwide, in fact,  2015 records equated to one every 3 mins  These reports are being made by people covering the spectrum of working society… pilots, cleaners, dentist, builders, doctors farmers, astronauts, politicians, the list is endless…  In most cases, reporting their experience to the authorities is not done with the intention of deceiving, it is done in the hope of receiving a logical answer or an explanation that fits their known reality. The problem however is that for 60 years Government officials, CIA and the M.O.D  have lied and deceived the general population. And in turn creating all sorts of ridiculous explanations to cover the facts, whilst secretly running top secret projects to study the phenomena. Majestic 12, (debatable)  Sign, Grudge, Blue book, Robertson report, Condon Report,4602d AISS to name but a few…

This hypercritical approach  makes it impossible for the public to receive any logical or acceptable explanation for their own personal experience, thus leaving most to conclude that there is a possible existence of an untold Separate Reality… The UFO/flying saucer phenomenon is a complex story with the subject matters like the roots of a weeping willow, travelling in many directions. Thus making it impossible to grasp the entire information tree. To the casual observer,  all that is known of the phenomena is via single paragraphs in a newspaper or TV programmes that tend to mock the true significance, importance and enormity of the subject.

Though not publicly known (except via F.I.O research) the UFO subject has for decades been considered by every government around the world as being real and defensively concerning.  M.o.D’s world wide were at one stage told to shoot them down if seen. This policy ended when all that got shot down were the fighters.

Hopefully after the reader completes the below  work, he or she will at least have an idea of the  the mountain of evidence proving UFOs exist and how for 60 years some world government’s  have concealed  this important subject from the general population.

NOTE: Many researchers believe (as I do) there is a great deception being played upon society using the UFO’s as bait. Only time will tell if this is correct. The problem is, by then, it will be too late and too dangerous to question anything.

 UPDATE ….   26th APRIL 2016 – Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made the following remark in a speech to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Norwich University’s ROTC program. (View full speech on Youtube)

Part of the speech by Staff Gen Mark Milley  states…   “You’ll be dealing with terrorists, you’ll be dealing with hybrid armies, you’ll be dealing with little green men, you’ll be dealing with tribes, you’re going to be dealing with it all, and you’re going to be dealing with it simultaneously,”

For decades the official term to discredit and make a joke of  people who claim they have seen an Extraterrestrial was to refer to the ET as little green men…  No better description if you want all to understand exactly what your saying. 

Side Line NOTE :  He had only that day been promoted to the second highest position ( Under Abama) in the United States. The above comment would have to have been approved, he was certainly not going to jeopardize his credibility, rank or official status on the very day of receiving this appointment. ALL speeches would have been pre-written and approved. So this leaves us with the facts…  Either the United States and other nations are about to enter a  SCIENCE FICTION war, or the United States has just officially started the “Great Deception” in earnest. A possible third alternative could be, that this speech was the beginning of E.B.E and UFO Discloser by the United States. If this is the case both previous scenarios could apply.

UFO Disclosure is not confirming that UFOs are real, it is formal acknowledgment of extraterrestrial presence throughout the universe by prominent global nations, space agencies and religious institutions. Anyone careful enough to connect the dots can clearly see that we have been on a path leading to disclosure for sometime.

It is very clear that mankind is being prepared for disclosure. It is no coincidence that more than 20 countries have started partial or full disclosure. Also comments and actions from the Vatican and the UN indicate that the “so called powers” want some of this information to become public. The preparation process is well under way and it is not that difficult to connect the dots. .

The following lists contains countries and organisations that have partially or fully disclosed UFO/Alien information, those that are in litigation to disclose all or specific files and countries that have released significant aspects of UFO and alien encounters.

on a final note, full, honest and complete disclosure may never happen. At best, we can expect some type of limited or partial disclosure.

ARGENTINA

Argentinean Air Force UFO Commission states Mission

ARGENTINEAN AIR FORCE

Commission for the Study of Aerospace Phenomena

Mission

“To document, analyze and study unidentified phenomena in an orderly, systematic and truthful manner by means of conventional control systems on the airspace under the National Jurisdiction.”

Creation

Due to the increment of information given by the population regarding sightings of unidentified aerospace phenomena, the Chief of the General Staff of the Argentinean Air Force created the Commission for the Study of Aerospace Phenomena through Resolution Nº 414. Its goal is to contribute in the search for a scientific and technical explanation of those aerospace phenomena which have not been identified.

The commission is composed of full time personnel of the Argentinean Air Force and specialists with a proven record in different fields of research that can contribute an invaluable support to the analysis of each field of study from different perspectives.

It is fundamental for the investigation to count with true information that can describe with the highest precision the observed phenomenon, for which the collaboration of our citizenry is very important.

To that end the Commission can be contacted through the email address fenomenosaerospaciales_sg@faa.mil.ar

BRAZIL –
Recognizes UFO Research

Friday, May 20, was an historic day for Ufology in Brazil and in the world as the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), for the very first time in its history, officially receives a committee of top UFO researchers to openly discuss sightings in the country and fully exam classified UFO documents in several military facilities in Brasilia, the Federal Capital.

By doing this very important step, Brazilian Air Force (FAB) has placed Brazil in a very short list of countries whose militaries acknowledge the Ufology as a serious activity and significative effort to fully understand the nature and origin of UFOs. “We want to have all info on the subject, that is withheld by us for some decades, fully released to public, through the UFO community”, declared brigadier Telles Ribeiro, chief of Brazilian Air Force Communication Center.

From left: A. J. Gevaerd, Fernando Ramalho, Roberto Beck, Marco Petit, Rafael Cury e Claudeir Covo at main entrance of the Integrated Center of Air Defense and Air Traffic Control (Centro Integrado de Defesa Aérea e Controle de Trafego Aéreo, Cindacta), after 2 hour of visitation

The Brazilian Government, through the Brazilian Air Force, has finally decided to come forward and recognize the UFO research as a genuine activity as a direct result of the intense pressure made by the campaign UFOs: Freedom of Information Now, a movement started by the Brazilian UFO Magazine in April 2004. The campaign was launched by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), composed of 6 UFO civilian researchers: Claudeir Covo, Marco Petit, Rafael Cury, Reginaldo de Athayde, Fernando Ramalho and A. J. Gevaerd (Athayde was sick an replaced by new interim member veteran UFO researcher Roberto Affonso Back

Details of the campaign both in Portuguese and in English can be consulted at: http://www.ufo.com.br and http://www.ufo.com.br/secrecy.php
A. J. Gevaerd gives to Brazilian Air Force (FAB) brigadier Telles Ribeiro, head of the Brazilian Air Force Communication Center (Cecomsaer), the formal letters of requests that are to be forwarded to Brazilian Air Force (FAB) Commander, the Brazilian Ministry of Defense and the Brazilian president Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, for opening for good the secret UFO documents and start an official committee of UFO research. “We want to have all info on the subject, that is withheld by us for some decades, fully released to public, through the UFO community”, declared brigadier Telles Ribeiro,.

The approach of the Brazilian military by the CBU committee started last February, ten months after the campaign begun, with a phone call from a Brazilian Air Force spokesman, major Antonio Lorenzo, and a formal invitation to a visit and a chat in some Air Force headquarters in Brasilia. Major Lorenzo fully recognized the UFO researchers, efforts in this field and provided a few details of what kind of reserved files and procedures the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) has about the UFO Phenomena and its detection, recording and investigation in the country.

Two meeting between the civilian UFO researchers and the military took place last Friday, May 20, and firstly happened in the headquarters of the Integrated Center of Air Defense and Air Traffic Control (Centro Integrado de Defesa Aérea e Controle de Trafego Aéreo, Cindacta), a very sensitive facility. During two hours, the researchers were given lectures of the procedures conducted at Cindacta and had the chance to visit air traffic control rooms and understand how UFOs could be detected by the Air Force personnel.

From left: Roberto Beck, Rafael Cury, Marco Petit, A. J. Gevaerd, Fernando Ramalho e Claudeir Covo in front of Brazilian Air Defense Command (Comando de Defesa Aerea Brasileiro, Comdabra), a sensitive installation that controls the entire air defense situation in the country and surrounding areas of Atlantic Ocean and South America. The researchers could exam secret UFO files at this facility.

The second and most important meeting took place just after this one at the very reserved facilities of Brazilian Air Defense Command (Comando de Defesa Aerea Brasileiro, Comdabra), an even more sensitive installation that controls the entire air defense situation in the country and surrounding areas of Atlantic Ocean and South America. In this facility the UFO researchers were given full briefing of the top aspects of aerial defense of the country.

It was in this facility that its own commander, brigadier Atheneu Azambuja, admitted to the UFO researchers how concerned the Brazilian military are about the UFO phenomena. Azambuja also gave details of Comdabra procedures and openly admitted that the country has systematically detected and registered UFOs in the country – labeled as “H Traffic” – since 1954. That wasn,t a surprise for the UFO researchers of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), but how this registering process took place was.

From left: A. J. Gevaerd, Marco Petit, an spokesman from Comdabra, Rafael Cury, Roberto Beck, Fernando Ramalho e Claudeir Covo, at a meeting room at Brazilian Air Defense Command (Comando de Defesa Aerea Brasileiro, Comdabra). After this point of the visit, nothing could be filmed, taped, videoed or even copies and transcripted

After  detailed explanations of Comdabra activities, brigadier Atheneu Azambuja, for the first time in history, gave full access to the civilian UFO researchers to exam 3 different folders with classified UFO information, cases from specific dates of 1954, 1977 and 1986. The first case was an airplane pursuit of a UFO in the ocean shores of Paraná State.

The second file was much more important. In the folder containing the 1977 docs that could be examined by the UFO researchers were dozens of cases of UFOs in the Amazon with and amazing amount of over 100 pictures made during the so-called Operation Saucer, an official program of UFO investigation by the military that took place from September to December, 1977, and has been fully covered by specialized UFO press over the world.

The third case was the “The Official Night of UFOs in Brazil”, a very significative group of events that happened in May 1986, when 21 objects of over 100 m in diameter jammed Brazilian air traffic control system over Rio de Janeiro, Sao Jose dos Campos and Sao Paulo, mainly, and several jets were sent to intercept – without any success – the intruders.

The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) representatives at those meetings then fully admitted that Ufology is serious business and broadly recognized the activity of UFO research by the civilian UFO community. And also guaranteed that further steps are about to be taken to let the researchers to exam the entire military UFO files in a more comprehensive way. Plus, a committee of military and civilian UFO researchers was promised to start operating very soon, coordinated by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU)

This certainly means that we will start a new era in Ufology in Brazil and in South America. Very good things are about to happen as the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) command, the Brazilian Ministry of Defense and the Brazilian president Luis Inacio Lula da Silva receive the open letters and formal requests for opening for good the documents and start the mentioned committee, as presented to them by their spokesman.

 

 

BULGARIA

Aliens ‘Already Exist On Earth’, Bulgarian Government  Scientists Claim

Aliens from outer space are already among us on earth, say Bulgarian government scientists who claim they are already in contact with extraterrestrial life.

Work on deciphering a complex set of symbols sent to them is underway, scientists from the country’s Space Research Institute said.

They claim aliens are currently answering 30 questions posed to them.

Lachezar Filipov, deputy director of the Space Research Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, confirmed the research.

He said the centre’s researchers were analysing 150 crop circles from around the world, which they believe answer the questions.

“Aliens are currently all around us, and are watching us all the time,” Mr Filipov told Bulgarian media.

“They are not hostile towards us, rather, they want to help us but we have not grown enough in order to establish direct contact with them.”

Mr Filipov said that even the seat of the Catholic church, the Vatican, had agreed that aliens existed.

He said humans were not going to be able to establish contact with the extraterrestrials through radio waves but through the power of thought.

“The human race was certainly going to have direct contact with the aliens in the next 10 to 15 years,” he said.

“Extraterrestrials are critical of the people’s amoral behavior referring to the humans’ interference in nature’s processes.”

The publication of the BAS researchers report concerning communicating with aliens comes in the midst of a controversy over the role, feasibility, and reform of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

Last week it lead to a heated debate between Bulgaria’s Finance Minister, Simeon Djankov, and President Georgi Parvanov.

CANADA

1947
Canadians were still accustomed to looking towards the sky, keeping a watch for enemy aircraft. Although the war was over, people were conscious of the possibility of an attack due to the new threat of a cold war. As a result, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Department of National Defence received reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Although sightings in Canada had occurred before, it was at this time that the Department of National Defence and other government agencies began to collect information on UFOs.

CHILE

UFO Declassification Begins

In 2014 Chile’s Office of Civil Aeronautics handed over a number of videos or audiotapes of UFO events that occurred in its territory. This was done through the Comité de Estudios de Fenomenos Aereos Anómalos (CEFAA, by its Spanish acronym). The news item goes on to state that “out of a total of 183 cases, 12 of these lack an explanation.”

Chile appears to take the subject earnestly and is concerned over UFO manifestations: both the presence of these unknown quantities and their consequences.

Rodrigo Bravo, a Chilean military aviator and a correspondent for Brazil’s Revista UFO, said that the Chilean army has its own aviation corps and pilots, and it has demonstrated its “awareness and interaction with the subject of UFOs on various opportunities.”

Bravo cites a recent statement by the Chilean army: “There is no longer any need to deny or ignore the UFO situation. They represent a real and very serious threat. Today were are challenged by a complex phenomenon whose characteristics cannot be explained within natural terrestrial confines.”

The article reminds readers that in December 2010, the Argentinean Air Force (FAA) created its own Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aeroespaciales with a view toward delving deeper into UFO study, increasing the number of official agencies involved with UFO research in South America.

The report ends by reminding its readers that La Tercera TV has published an audio recording between the Chilean pilot and ground control, reporting an anomalous aerial phenomenon.

CHINA

discloses UFO reality.
Dramatic events have taken place in China over the last month and that nation’s thousands of UFO researchers and enthusiasts are reeling in shock.

One of the heads of China’s famous Purple Mountain Astronomical Observatory, Prof. Wang Sichao, has gone public admitting the UFOs are real and aliens are visiting Earth and that the observatory has observed their craft many times. The admittance of UFO reality was made yesterday within an official speech entitled tellingly ‘China’s UFO truth’. This news has been extensively reported in China.

The key points that Wang Sichao have disclosed are that:

  • Aliens are visiting Earth on R & D expeditions
  • These UFOs are probes manned by robots.
  • These craft travel at eighty percent the speed of light.
  • These craft have been seen by the observatory many times at between 150 and 1500 kilometers above Earth.
  • The aliens might use Nuclear fusion to propel their craft
  • 39 years of work at Purple Mountain Observatory has led Wang to believe these craft use Earth’s gravity to manoeuvre and stay aloft

Wang Sichao also said he disagreed with Stephen Hawkings recent comments and declared that these aliens appear peaceful and require nothing materially from us as they can create their own materials using advanced technology.
In the event that these aliens do not come in peace, he stressed that they are not gods and have flaws and thus we can possibly defend ourselves.

The Purple Mountain Observatory was the station that observed the now well known UFO during last years eclipse. The entire text of the speech by Wang Sicaho clearly shows that the stuff we have been saying about China and other places regarding UFOs over the last few years is not just ‘made up tabloid news’ but fact and “those that criticise this publication are the know nothings who have bought into the West’s cover-up on this topic”

DENMARK

Danish UFO files now open to public

The top secret UFO files compiled by Denmark’s Air Force over the past 30 years have finally been declassified and opened to public perusal. Some 15,000 reported UFO sightings are detailed in the files, offering plenty for UFO buffs to drool over. The Danish government decided to release the files because they felt “there was nothings secret in the files.”

The Copenhagen Post reports that most of the sightings remain unidentified because there was not enough precise information to make a judgment. Many of the sightings, however, were found to be aircraft, weather phenomenon and the like. But not all the sightings were over Danish territory, and rumor has it one sighting over Greenland is drawing particular attention from UFO enthusiasts.

The Greenland incident happened on 5 January 1981, when a square flaming object appeared over the frozen tundra near Thule Air Base. The object disappeared as suddenly as it appeared. Interestingly, the neighbouring American military base recorded the exact same thing.

Danish Air Force Captain Thomas Petersen is an expert on the UFO files, and told the Copenhagen Post that the Air Force’s primary concern is defending Denmark against outside threats. “UFOs are not a known threat,” Peterson teasingly commented.

FINLAND

Secret UFO video filmed by Finnish

Finnish officials have filmed UFOs by infrared video at least twice, November 2003 and April 2005. The Finnish UFO Research Association FUFORA has received the videos for further analysis.

“No normal explanations have been found, neither by officials nor UFO researchers”, says Tapani Koivula, chairman of FUFORA.

Finnish UFO researchers are pioneers in the field of infrared photography. During the UFO flap in the late 1960´s and early 1970´s they got plenty of UFO infra red photos. It seems that UFOs mostly appear on the infra red level.

Also abroad UFO videos have been captured on infra red film. On April the 5th 2004 Mexican pilots filmed strange light balls that surrounded their
aeroplane. The video was presented also in Finland via MTV Morning TV.

According to the representatives of FUFORA the UFOs filmed by Finnish officials resemble the objects seen and filmed abroad lately. “A rod shape is typical,” says Mr. Koivula. “This is not the first time our officials have got UFO sightings. Many Air Force and Finnair pilots have seen UFOs during the last 50 years. Both the Finnish Air Force and Finnair have followed the general international style not to publish the sightings. They feel that because there are no normal explanations for UFOs, it is better to be silent. Ilpo Koskinen, pilot and UFO researcher, estimated that every fourth pilot has seen UFOs.”

 

FRANCE

French aerospace report endorses reality of UFOs

A new French report released on May 31, 2010 concluded that UFOs are definitely real and possibly of extraterrestrial origin. While not an official government study, the Progress Report of the Sigma/3AF Commission comes from a highly credible source, the Aeronautical & Astronomical Association of France, known as the 3AF, which established a Commission on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena back in May 2008. The Commission’s President is Alain Boudier, a former French Economics attaché, and one of its key members is Jean-Gabriel Greslé, a former fighter pilot who studied at the U.S. Air Force Academy and later became an airliner pilot with Air France, where he experienced a couple of UFO sightings. Greslé has published three UFO books in France, including Unidentified Flying Objects: An Airline Pilot Talks (Guy Trédaniel, 1993).

 

The Sigma/3AF is not a final report but just a work in progress document; nevertheless, it provides good background material on the history of official UFO research in France, a balance of Sigma’s work during the last two years, a brief description of the most significant French cases, and some comments and conclusions. The report begins with a brief history of French official UFO research, which is quite extensive: “France is the only country where the collection of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (PAN in French) and its scientific study have been assigned since 1977 to a civilian official organization, the CNES (National Center for Space Studies, the French space agency) through the GEPAN study group.” After a short description of this unit, now known as GEIPAN (Study and Information Group on Aerospace Unidentified Phenomena), the report outlines other official or quasi-official French studies, including the famous COMETA (Committee for In-Depth Studies) Report of 1999, issued by a group of high-ranking retired French military and intelligence officers, which concluded that UFOs were real and probably extraterrestrial.

Members of the Sigma/3AF Commission also met representatives of many other official French military and intelligence organizations that had some UFO involvement in the past. These included the National Gendarmerie, which has collected UFO reports systematically since the 1960s; the General Secretariat of National Defense, which issued an interesting report a few years ago (although I am not aware that it was ever released to the public); the Air Force; and one of France’s intelligence services, the General Directorate for External Security, which admitted through an “authorized source” that UFOs have been monitored by the agency since the early sixties.

The section on “the most significant French cases” provides a very short description of five incidents: a massive multiple-witness sighting in Madagascar in 1954; the famous landing and Close Encounter of the Third Kind (CE-III) in Valensole in 1965, which was documented by the Gendarmerie; the equally famous landing case in Trans-en-Provence in 1981, and another similar one in Nancy in 1982 known as “amaranth,” both of which were investigated by GEPAN and published respectively in their Technical Notes Nº 16 and Nº 17. The last case is a multiple-witness sighting seen in a diagonal between Biarritz and Strasbourg across France in November 1990.

A REAL AND NON-TERRESTRIAL PHENOMENON

In the Comments section, the Sigma/3AF report uses unambiguous language, for instance: “No natural phenomenon can account for the majority of observation reports accompanied by electromagnetic detections made by one or several radars. Both the defense services and air traffic control have been confronted a number of times around the world with unknown aerial intrusions or artificially induced phenomena.” Later on, the report goes on to say, “The behavior of these devices during encounters with fighter jets or interceptors – some have participated in real swirling battles in the U.S. – suggests they are controlled, guided or led by particularly sophisticated automation.” And then again, “the air superiority of the craft concerned, if they are indeed crafts, is such that none of the many interceptions which have been made against them, in the United States for example, have been able to overcome one of these devices.”

After outlining a number of characteristics exhibited by UFOs, such as “remarkable accelerations of the craft right after a stationary mode,” the report indicates: “We feel that we must reject the thesis of a terrestrial origin for all the observations made since World War Two. Indeed, if a nation of the world had been able to secretly develop such an armada of exotic craft, like those observed for more than half a century, the means of analysis and strategic logistics available would have permitted their rapid identification. The illegal overflights which they have been guilty of conducting could constitute a casus belli [cause for war].” The Sigma/3AF experts go on to state that, “the above features suggest that in many cases the devices detected, far from being unidentified, are easily recognizable by the aerial defense agencies as part of a technology far ahead of ours.” And later: “We have been unable to get any serious indication as to the origin of the aerospace phenomena that is the subject of our research. The technological elements that we selected… allow us to draw some assumptions about the aircraft in question, which do not seem to belong to an identifiable terrestrial technology at the times when they were observed.”

The Sigma/3AF report finally agrees with COMETA’s conclusion that we are probably facing an ET presence. That conclusion was quite controversial for a semi-official study like COMETA back in 1999 and was criticized by many in the French press. Yet the Sigma/3AF Commission found no quarrel with it. “Thus, the central hypothesis proposed by the COMETA report still cannot be rejected up to this day and remains perfectly credible,” they wrote. “Many documents and materials examined by the authors of this report confirm it. We have therefore retained, the possibility that most of the craft observed can have a non-terrestrial origin.”

GERMANY

Berlin court demands release of secret German UFO report

Claimant Mr. Frank R. refers his request to the German freedom of information act (Informationsfreiheitsgesetz , IFG) and demands the release of the paper that the German federal government is still holding back. This report is known to exist and represents a compilation done by the “scientific research service of the German parliament” on information about the “search for extraterrestrial life and the realization of the UN-Resolution A/33/426 about the observation of unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial life”. (Note: Together with A/DEC/32/424, A/DEC/33/426 was adopted decision by the United Nations Berlin/ Germany – On December 1, 2011, the administrative court of the city of Berlin is running a hearing on a man’s claim against the German government to release secret information on UFOs and Aliens and in special the release of an official report compiled by the “scientific research service of the German parliament” on demand of members of the German parliament on the question on the government’s knowledge and studies about UFOs. So far the German government refuses to publish this paper.

General Assembly in 1978 which called for the “establishment of an agency or a department of the United Nations for undertaking, co-ordinating and disseminating the results of research into unidentified flying objects and related phenomena”.)

So far the German parliament, the Deutsche Bundestag in Berlin, denies access to and the publication of this report with the argument that “the IFG (German freedom of information act) only applies to the parliament as long as it administers public administration duties”, as quoted by the administrative court of Berlin that continues quoting the German parliament: “The specific area on administrating of parliamentary duties should be excluded from access to information. This includes amongst other things the legwork of the scientific research services to the delegates. Furthermore protection of the intellectual property rights (a kind of the German version of Copyright) applies also for the work of the scientific research service of the German parliament.”
As part of the worldwide Disclosure and Exopolitic-movement, the “German Exopolitic Initiative” (exopolitik.org) is pursuing the release of reportedly secret knowledge and information by governments, military and intelligence services. In an interview with the German online newsmagazine on the paranormal and edge science “Grenzwissenschaft-Aktuell” (grewi.de) the coordinator of Exopolitc Germany, Robert Fleischer, commented on the fact that the Bundestag is withholding the paper, even while facing a court hearing, as follows: “The refusal of the German parliament to publish the report is even more strange and questionable as you can find and download nearly all other such reports, compiled by the ‘scientific research service of the German parliament’ when it comes to a whole range of other topics, at the website of the service www.bundestag.de/dokumente/wissenschaftlichediensteThe fact that the release and publication of such an report dealing with questions about UFOs and extraterrestrial life is not only denied but also fought at court with reference to the protection of the intellectual property rights, does not really make sense – or does it?”
In fact: What is known about the conclusion of the secret paper is the fact that also the scientific research service of the German parliament this the very same and claims is is “more than likely that also official German authorities and Departments dealt with this questions”.

Since many decades German UFO-researchers tried to find out if the German government is conduction investigation into UFOs and keeping records of it somewhere. While many members of the military as well as private pilots (most prominently the former chief pilot of the German airline “Lufthansa”) publicly confirmed their very own first hand observations and experiences with unidentified flying objects, all official enquiries for example to the German Department of Defense (Bundesverteidigungsministerium) were replied with statements denying any official German interest or knowledge about UFOs at all.

However, such an alleged lack of interest does not make any sense at all, as other NATO members, partner countries and states, such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy and France (only to name a few…) have already gone public with their former UFO-files that were collected and investigated for several decades. According to Fleischer, it is impossible that Germany as one of the leading European countries, had and has no interest in a matter of national security, that got and gets investigated by so many of his neighbors and NATO-partners.”


INDIA

UFO BASE FOUND IN HIMALAYAS

 

BANGALORE, INDIA – Indian and Chinese authorities have confirmed the existence of an underground UFO base in the Himalayas.

Kongka La is the low ridge pass in the Himalayas in the disputed India-China border area in Ladakh.  The Chinese held northeastern part is known as Aksai Chin and Indian South West is known as Ladakh. This was where Indian and Chinese army fought major war in 1962. The area is one of the least accessed area in the world and by agreement the two countries do not patrol that part of the border.

According to the locals on the Indian and Chinese side, this is where UFOs are seen coming out of the ground on a regular basis.  According to many, the UFO underground bases are in this region and both the Indian and Chinese Government haven known this for a very, very long time.

They are publicly confirming its existence.

“India has found an active UFO base in The Himalayas. We are working with China and the U.N. to discuss how to handle this alien incursion,” said Indian Defense Minister, A.K. Antony.  “We do not want our people to be alarmed.  We are confident we can contain this threat from an alien culture.”

UFO expert, Dr. John Malley, of the U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials, has been touring the globe, speaking to governments about the ongoing alien invasion (which he believes will last until December 2015) and how to best to deal with the situation.  “ If we don’t, we are doomed,”  Malley said.

Why did India release the information now?

They had no choice.

Recently, some Hindu pilgrims on their way to Mount Kailash from the Western pass, came across strange lights in the sky. The local guides while in the Chinese territory told them that this was nothing new and is a normal phenomenon from Kongka Pass area the tensed border between India and China.  They were first turned by the Chinese guard posts as they were refused entry from the Chinese side and then when they tried to approach the site from Indian side, the Indian border patrol also turned them down in spite of their permit to travel between the two countries.

One of the pilgrims (Sukhbir Siwach) is a writer for The Times of India (the biggest English language newspaper in India) and he had planned an expose on the cover-up of the alien base by India.  The government was unable to stop him (a brave writer) – so the Indian government went public with information, some say in order to “control” the information.

UPDATE:  The Indian government (with help from the China, Russia and the U.S.) has scrubbed ALL mentions of this online and is publicly denying what they have already said publicly.  The outrageous cover-up continues!

WWN examined the site with Dr. Malley.  The locals in the aeras start laughing when they are asked about these UFO sightings. According to them the extra-terrestrial presence is well known and is in deep into the ground. They believe the Indian or Chinese Governments covered up the fact for some reason. But they are happy that they are now disclosing it to the world.

Why didn’t they report it to the global press?  They were told to keep quiet or face death.

The area where the UFO base is located is where the Euresian plate and the Indian plate have created convergent plate boundaries. Convergent plate boundaries are formed where one plate dives under another. Consequently, this is one of the very few areas in the world where the depth of the earth’s crust twice as thick as in other places. The opposite is found in hot spots like Yellow Stone National Park in America where the earth’s crust in thin making it perfect for alien spaceships.

The U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials has called an emergency meeting for September 22nd to deal with the problem of the UFO base.

JAPAN

Japan’s Top Government Spokesman: UFOs ‘Definitely’ Exist

Japan’s air force has never spotted a UFO, but the country’s top government spokesman said Tuesday he “definitely” believes they exist.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura was speaking to reporters in response to demands lodged by an opposition lawmaker for an inquiry into “frequent reports of UFO sightings.”

The government said in an official reply that it had “not confirmed sightings of unidentified flying objects believed to be from outer space.”

Still, “I definitely believe they exist,” Machimura said as reporters erupted in laughter.

In a written response issued Tuesday to opposition Democratic Party of Japan lawmaker Ryuji Yamane, the government said the air force had often spotted “birds and other objects beside aircraft,” but no UFOs.

Tokyo keeps a vigilant watch over Japanese airspace and is ready to scramble fighter jets to intercept suspicious airborne objects, the government reply said.

MEXICO

Mexican DoD Acknowledges
UFOs In Mexico

The UFO Phenomenon in Mexico has been recognized as a fact in an historic and unprecedent decision taken by the mexican Department of Defense under his Secretary of Defense General Clemente Vega Garcia, commander of all armed forces in this country.

The insolit meassure that will change history here in Mexico was the result of a high level incident in wich a mexican Air Force airplane, military pilots and personal were involved in a situation with several UFOs while doing a routinary suveillance antinarcotics operation to detect a drug smuggling flight.

The news was released last night, Sunday May 9, 2004 by Jaime Maussan, researcher and tv journalist during the tv show Los Grandes Misterios del Tercer Milenio (Great Misteries of the Third Millenium) broadcast by mexican tv network Multimedios Television in the city of Monterrey, N.L.

Jaime Maussan announced that on Tuesday May 11 there will be an international press conference to present the case and the investigation made by the Department fo Defense along with Maussan’s research team in an unprecedent colaboration. The press conference will take place at the Hotel Sevilla Palace in Mexico city at 11:00 AM were all the international media representatives have been invited. Previously on Monday’s night an advance report will be broadcast on national television newscast.

All the facts and materials of the investigation will be presented at the conference including the official footages by the Air Force as well as interviews with the pilots and personal involved in the amazing incident.

THE FACT IS: On April 20, 2004 Jaime Maussan was contacted by a high officer of the Department of Defense to have a private meeting and discuss a subject of a high relevant matter. The next day Maussan met General Clemente Vega Garcia, Secretary of Defense and his major staff and was informed about an incident that took place on March 5, 2004 on the aerial space of Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche where an Air Force Merlín C26A Bimotor airplane was doing a routinary flight to detect a smuggling drug airplane during an antinarcotics operation.

The Merlin C26A was equipped with a high tech advanced digital equipment to register and record all the activities during the operation. Powerful sensor detectors like a FLIR STAR ZAPPHIR II and a RADAR AN/PS 143 BRAVO VICTOR 3 were being used by qualified personal aboard the airplane and all the operation was being recorded both in normal and infrared mode.

The airplane was under the command of Mayor Magdaleno Jasso Núñez. The FLIR operator was Lt. Mario Adrián Vázquez and the RADAR operator Lt. German Ramirez, all of them members of the 501 Aerial Squadron.

This airplane is programmed only for surveillance and detection procedures, not for interception or combat maneuvres. Their duty is to detect and identify drug dealers filghts and then inmediately report them to the base where combat planes are scrambled to intercept those narcotics smugglers.

At aproximately 17:00 PM the Merlin C26A detected an unknown traffic at 10,500 feet over Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche airspace and according to the protocol and suspecting a drug dealer airplane Mayor Magdaleno Jasso made a maneuver to approach the unidentified traffic at certain range to get a close look and record the target with their equipment. At the same time Mayor Jasso reported by radio to the base that a posible suspect was detected requesting the interceptor planes to be in alert condition.

The RADAR AN/PS 143 BRAVO VICTOR 3 was detecting the unknown traffic and the FLIR STAR ZAPPHIR II was recording the object in infrared. As the Merlin C26A tried to approach the unknown traffic to make a visual identification it suddenly in a surprising maneuver escaped flying away at tremendous speed. By this time Mayor Jasso tried to persecute the target but it was very fast. All this was being recorded by the FLAIR and also the radio conversations with the base describing the inexpected maneuver of the unknown. However the C26A still have not made visual contact with the unknown object.

 

Just some moments passed when suddenly the unknown object returned and began following the Merlin C26A in a surprising situation. This was detected by the RADAR and the FLIR while the personal aboard were trying to make visual contact of the unidentified traffic now following them. In seconds the equipment detected now not only one but two traffics following them. The images in both RADAR and the FLIR were clear and unmistakable. But both pilot and personal still could’nt have visual contact with these two traffics following them adding a great suspense to this disconcerting situation.

Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported to the base the insolit incident that was taking place giving detail of all the informations registered by the equipment while keep trying to make visual contact of the unknowns. The FLIR kept recording in infrared every movement made by the two unknown objects that seemed to be keeping their distance from the C26A but still following it. The personal aboard the Merlin C26A were confused and disconcerted seeing the images on the FLIR and the RADAR asking themselves what was going on with this insolit situation.

 

THE INCIDENT TURNS MORE DRAMATIC

But the stressing moment that the C26A crew were passing through was just the beginning of something more dramatic that will turn their undesirable experience into a real nightmare.

Some minutes passed while the mexican Air Force Merlin C26A crew continued making maneuvers to have a visual contact of the unknowns because despite both RADAR and FLIR were showing perfectly clear both unidentified objects for unexplained reasons there was not a visual contact even that the objects by this time were at close range.

It was during this round and round maneuvers to identify these two objects that something amazing happened. In a matter of seconds more unknown objects arrived to the scene and the disconcert of the C26A crew was totally surrounded

The RADAR and the FLIR detected immediately the presence of nine new objects of the same size and characteristics, unknown objects that arrived to the scene surprisingly like coming from nowhere. Now the situation has entered into a high level of danger so Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported by radio to the base this new situation requesting instructions.

But the most insolent thing was that even that there were eleven unknown objects close to them still the crew could’nt see them, no visual contact with the unknowns was posible for some reason never experienced before by these high trained men. However the high tech sophisticated equipment and sensors were not lying, there were eleven targets outside them with unpredictable intentions.

At the middle of a complete confusion and disconcert among the C26A crew the unknown objects suddenly made a maneuver surrounding the mexican Air Force airplane in a circle at close range. The RADAR and FLIR presented an insolit image of an eleven objects near by in a circle formation around the Merlin C26A. The situation turned out of control.

Mayor Magdaleno Jasso reported to the base that the C26A situation was now in red alert, surrounded by eleven mysterious round shaped objects camouflaged with a certain unknown advanced technology that avoid any visual contact of them. However Mayor Jasso kept the calm as well as the crew who were working fast meassuring and recording every detail of this unique incident conscientious of their duty as military and trained men.

Confronting this situation surrounded by unidentified objects in an unpredictable ending Mayor Magdaleno Jasso took the decision of turning out all the airplane lights and wait to see what happened. Moments of high suspense lived by the crew while the FLIR was recording the images of those bright objects even that visual contact was not posible, moments of silence and uncertainty.

The C26A crew kept calmed doing their duty, documenting every moment of the strange incident while Mayor Jasso continued in contact with the base. After some stressing minutes the eleven objects dissapeared giving an end to the strange experience that these members of the 501 Aerial Squadron just lived. The Merlin C26A returned safe to the Air Force Base and Mayor Magdaleno Jasso prepared a complete report of the incident along with the C26A crew.

The Secretary of the Defense took notice of Mayor Jasso’s report and began a full investigation studying and evaluating every element of the case. Statements of the crew, images, lectures, meassurements of all the equipment as well as a complete evaluation of the meteorological data . The incident was taken very seriously by the Department of Defense Staff and after several weeks of investigation they decided under the command of General Clemente Vega Garcia to contact researcher and tv journalist Jaime Maussan for a special colaboration in this investigation as an experienced researcher in these matters.

On April 22, 2004 General Clemente Vega, Secretary of Defense gave Jaime Maussan a copy of all the tapes and data collected by the Merlin C26A during the incident for study, evaluation and analisis by Maussan’s research team as complement of this investigation and as an external colaborating source trying to establish a definition of the posible motives and consequences of the March 5, 2004 incident.

General Vega as well as his staff were very open to discuss the subject and showed their legitimate interest in conducting this investigation in order to establish the truth of what happened. General Vega authorized the Merlin C26A crew to give Jaime Maussan the interviews needed without any censorship, giving all the facilities to present this case to the mexican people, an historic and unprecedent decision that will open a new era of mutual colaboration among the mexican ufologists and the military forces, a colaboration based in respect and interest to find the truth of the intense UFO activity we have been experiencing here in Mexico since the beguinning of the Amazing Mexican UFO Wave back in July 11, 1991.

This new era of relationship among the mexican UFO witnesses, skywatchers, ufologists and our military forces will try to establish and give form to a new legislation in our law system focused to be prepared for any incident involving these unidentified flying objects, our people, our comercial and military airplanes etc. for learning and understanding what are we going to do and how are we going to confront this reality.

 

N.A.S.A

NASA Openly Admits Alien Life Exists

Most people ‘in the know’ realize that NASA is just part of the military industrial complex, but a recent open admission on mainstream news that “there are indications of alien life” is likely the beginning of a bid to get your undivided attention before full-forced disclosure ensues.

Most people already believe what NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan states:

“I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade . . .I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20-30 years.”

It isn’t going to take that long if we open our eyes.

Stofan goes on to say:

“We’re on the verge of things that people have wondered about for millennia. Within all of our lifetimes we’re going to understand that there is life on other bodies in the solar system. We’re going to understand the implications of that for life here on Earth.”

What we’re going to understand is that our ‘secret’ government has been hiding this fact for ages. In an effort to transition the US and other countries through its reach to a cabal-run oligarchy, our shadow government has been lying about off-planet corporate slavery rings, alien abductions, benevolent beings who can only do so much until our collective consciousness elevates, and much, much more.

William Cooper, among others, tried to disclose the true purpose of NASA, but he was exterminated. His death, among thousands of others, will not be in vain.

We will learn that aside from extraterrestrial beings visiting our planet and many different ET races tinkering with our DNA over millenia, there are ancient humanoid races that are more than 10 million years old.

We will learn that a recent computer hacking retrieved millions of government and corporate personnel records, some say as part of documentation for Nuremburg-like trials, will begin soon against those who have mind-controlled, enslaved and tortured us. Undeniable photos of UFOs were also unearthed.

We will also learn that chemtrails and GMOs were the LEAST of plans made for us ‘sheeple’ and ‘useless eaters’ by a Luciferian cabal, and that President Harry Truman signed a document with certain ETs that allowed the ‘elite’ to conduct highly technological experiments with intelligence gained from these ETs in exchange for looking the other way when certain humans were abducted for ET experiments.

We will learn that we are not helpless, as we have been programmed to believe. We are, in fact, a rare humanoid race that has an incredible range of emotion and creative power. We will learn that our minds and emotions can either fuel chaos on this planet, or restore it to its rightful place of peace and cooperation, of care for others at least as much as ourselves.

We will learn that our ascension into infinitely peaceful beings is indeed possible, and it has been described in countless books, many of which have been suppressed along with UFO information.

NASA is telling us now that the likelihood of alien life is a ruse. Be sure to remember those who have been executed to try to prove this information to us decades ago, and to use discernment when the truth is finally revealed.

NASA Confirmed Alien Invasion?

On February 12, 2013, NASA confirmed alien invasion! Scientists also predicted that three giant alien spaceships will arrive in March of 2013.

The exclusive media reporting about the continuing alien invasion is WWN and its top investigative reporter, Frank Lake, the world’s top investigative reporter on this issue.

In an effort to avoid panic, governments around the globe have been covering up the invasion. However, WWN feels we must report the truth, and if we take peaceful actions now – we can avoid a war with aliens.

As cited on WWN, UFO encounters continue to increase and scientists at Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), an independent non-commercial organization announced, that:

“Three giant spaceships are heading toward Earth. The largest one of them is 200 miles wide. Two others are slightly smaller. At present, the objects are just moving past Jupiter.  Judging by their speed, they should be on Earth by the fall of 2012,” said John Malley, the lead extraterrestrial expert at SETI.

In February this year, NASA confirmed Frank Lake’s report that aliens are invading our planet in increasing numbers. NASA claimed that the rising greenhouse emissions must have tipped off aliens.

“Watching from afar, extraterrestrials have viewed changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilization out of control – and are taking drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat,” NASA researchers explain.

The U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials confirmed in October 2011 that aliens from Planet Zeeba started invading Earth.  The U.N. Panel, led by Dr. John Malley, forebodes the invasion will continue until December 2015, after which earth may be under the control of aliens from Zeeba.

It’s been predicted by scientists at Pennsylvania State University predict that towards the end of 2012, humanity will have direct encounter with aliens from Zeeba.

Jessica Wygal-Markum of NASA’s Planetary Science Division and her colleagues have collected plausible conclusions that could unravel in the consequence of a close encounter that would help humans prepare.

“When Humans Meet Zeebans” report says that humans contact with aliens could either be:

  • Neutral encounters may be less rewarding because humans will be indifferent towards aliens.
  • Beneficial encounters are peaceful and productive meetings with ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) which could assist out advancement solution to diseases, poverty, and hunger.
  • Harmful outcomes could be unappealing on the assumption that aliens may attack, enslave, or eat us when they arrive. There is also a possibility that aliens will annihilate our civilization if they unleash hostile artificial intelligence or perform catastrophic experiment.

To bolster of chance of survival, researchers are sending messages into space to peacefully connect with aliens. NASA authors warn in their report that extraterrestrials could be suspicious of the very rapid civilization expansion and may extinguish humanity to conserve their existence.

Early this month, a member of parliament and former Canadian Minister of Defense Honorable Paul Hellyer, publicly voiced his belief that Earth have been visited by aliens for years. Hufftington Post Canada construe that part of Hellyer testimony stated that aliens live among us and at least two works with the U.S. government. Hellyer also declared that four extraterrestrials species from the “Zeta Reticuli, the Pleiades, Orion, Andromeda, and Altair star systems” have been visiting us for thousands of years with different agendas.

Hellyer has been publicly affirmed about extraterrestrials and UFOs since 2005. He told Ottawa Citizen in February 2007 that alien technology obtained during supposed UFO crashes like the Roswell, New Mexico mysterious incident in 1947,  provides us with possible substitute to fossil fuels.

 

NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand Military Releases UFO Files

Talk about out-of-this-world: the BBC is reporting that New Zealand’s military has just released hundreds of classified files, dating from 1954 to 2009, detailing reports of sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

The documents, which run at an estimated 2,000 pages, allegedly comprise drawings of flying saucers as well as alleged samples of alien writing. Also included are accounts by members of the public, military personnel and commercial airline pilots describing close encounters, as well as never-before-seen details of the country’s best-known UFO sighting, when footage of unusual lights was shot off the South Island town of Kaikoura in 1978, which was then explained as natural phenomenon.

New Zealand Air Force spokesman Kavae Tamariki confirmed the documents’ release, but otherwise remained tight-lipped over their contents. “We have just been a collection point for the information,” he told the Dominion Post, adding that the military did not have the resources to investigate UFO sightings. “We don’t investigate or make reports, we haven’t substantiated anything in them.” Officials also say the files were open for scrutiny but that individuals named in the reports are to remain anonymous.

In a move that seems inspired by the ongoing WikiLeaks “Cablegate” scandal, the Dominion Post is publishing the entire lot of documents online. Among the reports that have been uploaded so far are details of a 1999 sighting of what appeared to be aircraft contrails above the sky in Auckland, during which the writer reportedly warns, “A vast many people in Auckland will suffer flu-like sickness.”

N.S.A

National Security Agenc

The thousands of released NSA documents relating to UFO incursions were located in response to the numerous requests received by NSA on the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO). In 1980, NSA was involved in Civil Action No. 80-1562, “Citizens Against Unidentified Flying Objects Secrecy v. National Security Agency. These documents are available to be viewed online AND CONTAIN 100’S OF UFO and USO contact and sightings.

PERU

Peru’s Government Launches Official UFO Investigation Department

In a significant event for UFO research in Latin America, the Peruvian Air Force has officially launched a department that will focus on studying the UFO phenomenon. It’s called the Office of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Research (OIFAA), which was previously in operation but shut down for the past five years.(0)(1) The department will seek the expertise of air force personnel, sociologists, scientists, archaeologists and astronomers to analyze as much information and data possible about UFOs.

In my opinion this decision is great news, anytime that a country officially acknowledges the presence of UFOs, as dozens have already done, it brings a necessary level of seriousness and professionalism to the phenomenon. However, the public announcement of this event certainly should not overshadow the fact that UFO research within government and military agencies has been conducted for decades.

This might not be a surprise to many, as dozens of governments have already released thousands upon thousands of files indicating that there were departments within the government that study the UFO phenomenon. These files indicated that UFOs are constantly tracked on radar and jets are scrambled to check them out.. The National Security agency has also released many files indicating the same thing. Apart from that, we have an enormous amount of witness testimony from high ranking military, NASA and political personnel (to name a few). Not to mention all of the people around the world who have had their own experiences.

Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. It is ironic that the U.S. is fighting monstrously expensive wars to allegedly bring democracy to those countries, when they themselves can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief no nothing about.

RUSSIA
The Russian navy has declassified its records of encounters with unidentified objects technologically surpassing anything humanity ever built, reports Svobodnaya Pressa news website.

The records dating back to soviet times were compiled by a special navy group collecting reports of unexplained incidents delivered by submarines and military ships. The group was headed by deputy Navy commander Admiral Nikolay Smirnov, and the documents reveal numerous cases of possible UFO encounters, the website says.

Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says the materials are of great value.

“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,” he said.

On one occasion a nuclear submarine, which was on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean, detected six unknown objects. After the crew failed to leave behind their pursuers by maneuvering, the captain ordered to surface. The objects followed suit, took to the air, and flew away.

Many mysterious events happened in the region of Bermuda Triangle, recalls retired submarine commander Rear Admiral Yury Beketov. Instruments malfunctioned with no apparent reason or detected strong interference. The former navy officer says this could be deliberate disruption by UFOs.

Vladimir Kremlev stated that on several occasions the instruments gave reading of material objects moving at incredible speed. Calculations showed speeds of about 230 knots, of 400 kph. Speeding so fast is a challenge even on the surface. But water resistance is much higher. It was like the objects defied the laws of physics. There’s only one explanation: the creatures who built them far surpass us in development,” Beketov said.
Navy intelligence veteran, Captain 1st rank Igor Barklay comments:

“Ocean UFOs often show up wherever our or NATO’s fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea.”

Another place where people often report UFO encounters is Russia’s Lake Baikal, the deepest fresh water body in the world. Fishermen tell of powerful lights coming from the deep and objects flying up from the water.

In one case in 1982 a group of military divers training at Baikal spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits. The encounter happened at a depth of 50 meters, and the divers tried to catch the strangers. Three of the seven men died, while four others were severely injured.

“I think about underwater bases and say: why not? Nothing should be discarded,” says Vladimir Azhazha. “Skepticism is the easiest way: believe nothing, do nothing. People rarely visit great depths. So it’s very important to analyze what they encounter there.”

 

 

Russian Navy Records Say They’re Real!

 

The recently declassified documents contain Soviet era reports detailing many cases of possible USO encounters. Former naval officer and Russian UFO researcher Vladimir Azhazha believes these documents are of great value
Unidentified submerged objects (USOs) are not as famous as UFOs although they are often encountered, according to declassified Russian Navy records. The common trait of all USO phenomena is that they involve unexplained and technologically advanced objects, far superior to anything we’ve ever built.

One of the most interesting cases he examined involved a nuclear submarine on a combat mission in the Southern Pacific. During the routine operation, the submarine detected six unknown objects travelling in formation at speeds in excess of 230 knots (265+ mph). In comparison, the fastest submarine was the Soviet K-222, which reached about 44 knots (51 mph).

The submarine’s sonar determined the objects were heading straight for it so the captain gave the order to surface. The USOs followed them to the surface then flew away. Similar instances have been reported in the region of the Bermuda Triangle, as retired submarine commander Yuri Beketov recalls. On-board instruments often malfunctioned, indicating the presence of strong interference. Many believe this is a clear sign of USO/UFO presence.

 

 

“On several occasions the instruments gave reading of material objects moving at incredible speed. Calculations showed speeds of about 230 knots, or 265 mph. Speeding so fast is a challenge even on the surface. But water resistance is much higher. It was like the objects defied the laws of physics. There’s only one explanation: the creatures who built them far surpass us in development,” said Beketov.

 

Both UFOs and USOs seem to concentrate wherever military operations occur, indicating their interest in humanity’s military arsenal.
Another USO hotspot is Lake Baikal in Russia. The world’s deepest freshwater lake has always had a certain mysterious nature and fishermen tell tales of lights being spotted in its deep waters. Multiple folk tales describe swimmers being dragged down by creatures lurking beneath Baikal’s calm waves.

Another of the Russian documents described the encounter between a group of military divers and several humanoid beings in silver suits. The divers were training in Lake Baikal at a depth of 150 feet (50 meters) when they came upon a group of unknown creatures. The divers went deeper in the pursuit of the humanoids. Three men were killed, while the other four were severely injured.

Vladimir Azhazha believes the issue should be thoroughly investigated.

“I think about underwater bases and say: why not? Nothing should be discarded,” says Azhazha. “Skepticism is the easiest way: believe nothing, do nothing. People rarely visit great depths. So it’s very important to analyze what they encounter there.”

The following is a transcript from ABC News Prime Time Live,a segment about recently released Soviet KGB UFO files. The date on the original files is October 5, 1995. As far as I know this is the date that the story was broadcast.

DIANE SAWYER: In an ABC News exclusive first broadcast last October (1994) We asked ABC News Correspondent David Ensor to find out what’s in the KGB UFO files.

DAVID ENSOR: During a five month investigation Prime Time obtained over a thousand pages of documents collected by the old KGB. We spoke to dozens of Russian scientists, government officials, and military men. We now know that the entire Soviet armed forces, a total of 15 million people over ten years, was involved in a UFO study that turned up forty major incidents, including one that prompted fears of starting an accidental nuclear war.

As a result of the study hundreds of UFOs were recorded and some were photographed. Some of the reports and some of the photos are clearly faked. But in other cases there were multiple witnesses {At this point they show awesome film of a huge triangular UFO, filmed by a Soviet propaganda film crew doing a film about military preparedness in the 1960’s. The film is very clear, showing a huge triangle shaped UFO a few miles high. The report states that the film was locked up by the KGB. – It really is pretty amazing footage- Dick}

DAVID ENSOR: October 4th, 1982 Byelokoroviche, Ukraine. Near a sleepy farming village our search brought us to perhaps the most frightening case of all, an incident that could have started an accidental nuclear war.

RUSSIAN MAN, EYEWITNESS: “I was riding a motorcycle not far from here. I saw a large object in the air. It had a perfect geometric shape.”

DAVID ENSOR: Every person we spoke to in Byelokoroviche said they saw a flying saucer on that day. They told us it was huge, about 900 feet in diameter. For hours it hovered over the nearby ballistic missile base. Where Lt. Col. Vladamir Plantonev worked as a missile engineer.

LT. COL.VLADAMIR PLANTONEV: “It looked just like a flying saucer. The way they show them in the movies. No portholes, nothing. The surface was absolutely even. The disk made a beautiful turn, like this, on the edge just like a plane. There was no sound. I had never seen anything like that before.”

DAVID ENSOR: Lt. Col. Plantonev took me to the ruins of what was then a missile silo with a nuclear warhead pointed at the U.S. It was dismantled 3 years ago after an arms reduction treaty. Plantonev was in the bunker on that day 12 years ago. In this room were dual control panels for the missile, each hooked up to Moscow. What happened next so alarmed Soviet Military leadership that a four man commission was sent to investigate, including Col. Chernovshev.

COL. IGOR CHERNOVSHEV: “During this period for a short time signal lights on both the control panels suddenly turned on. The lights showing that missiles were preparing for launch. This could normally only happen if an order were transmitted from Moscow.”

DAVID ENSOR: No one had touched any buttons. No one had entered any codes. And yet as the UFO hovered over the base, the control panel showed the missiles were preparing to launch. For 15 agonizing seconds, the base lost control of its nuclear weapons.

Feb. 23rd, 1988. Six years later, at Kapustin Yar, near the Caspian Sea. It is Soviet Army and Navy day, a national holiday. An unidentified flying object appears on the radar screen protecting the military base. As the UFO moves toward central Russia the entire Soviet ballistic missile radar grid goes on alert. Several times fighter pilots are ordered to fire on the object. Each time the pilot would report that as he prepared to fire, the target had disappeared. Finally the UFO moved away for good.

{The report goes on to play back the actual audio tape of Soviet radar operators watching the UFO on radar, although you can’t understand them unless you speak Russian, it is obvious they are agitated and seeing something very unusual. And then the segment has interviews with eyewitnesses who saw the large UFO which had been tracked on radar.}

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPAIN

Military UFO Records Released

Investigation in Spain is inevitably associated with Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, who, alone or with collaborators, has authored a series of outstanding books which reflect more than twenty years of dedicated work. His 1987 Enciclopedia de los encuentros cercanos con ovnis (with Juan Antonio Fernández Peris) is probably the best-documented collection of close encounter cases in print. Ballester Olmos’s attention remains chiefly directed at strongly evidenced UFO sightings, as opposed to abductions, where every local case he has investigated proved to be either a hoax or capable of some alternative explanation.

During recent years his main activity has been co-operating with the Spanish government in the release of official documents. In 1995 he published a book containing his findings to date, Expedientes Insólitos, and here he presents some notable cases from the military archives.
In the history of UFO research in Spain from 1947 to 1997, one event is of out-standing importance: the release by the Spanish Ministry of Defence of previously secret Air Force UFO archives, a process which started in 1992. I was privileged to play a part throughout this process which has made the official files literally an open book which anyone may read.

No Secret Lasts Forever

Friday, 8 November 1996. 13.30 hours.Torrejón Air Force Base, near Madrid. Lieutenant Colonel Enrique Rocamora walks briskly along the corndors of the Aerial Operative Command (MOA) heading for the commander-in-chief’s bureau. This is no routine dispatch: he carries with him the proposal for declassification of the last UFO file waiting for release.

It was during 1990-1991 that I started to induce the Air Force to review the classified matter policy applied in 1979 to UFO information (before that it has been considered Confidential). Step by step I watched the process proceed. In May 1991 the Air Safety Section, responsible for matters concerning UFOs and custodian of the UFO files, submitted a memo proposing to declassify the archives. In March 1992 the Joint Chiefs of Staff decided to downgrade the classification level imposed on UFO documents, leaving to the Air Force Chief of Staff the authority to fully declassify them.

The documents transferred to MOA comprised 62 files of UFO reports covering the period 1962 to 1991; procedures and memos shaping official Air Force policy on UFOs, 1968 to 1991; and UFO information requests from civilians addressed to the Air Force over the same period.

 

MOA’s Intelligence Section took on the declassification task. The actual workload was handed to Lieutenant Colonel Angel Bastida. An open-minded individual and the prototype of the 21st century military man, Bastida formulated a new procedure detailing the involvement and investigation of UFO reports by the Air Force, and an analysis of all available historical information with arguments favouring full disclosure of existing and future UFO files. Incidentally~ Bastida also authored the best paper ever written by the military on the Air Force and the UFO problem

In September 1992, the first files were declassified. They were cases from 1962, 1967 and 1968. By the time Bastida moved to another military post he had declassified 22 files. His successor, Lieutenant Colonel Enrique Rocamora – a strong and sharp staff officer – declassified a further 53 files. The process was carried out as speedily as possible, given the fact that declassifying secret UFO files was only one part of these officers’ work.

Sightings: Strange and Less Strange

The military UFO reports contain descriptions of several different kinds of seemingly anomalous phenomena. They include examples of lights or uncorrelated radar echoes which seem to defy a rational explanation. My colleagues and I are painstakingly analysing all pieces of information to determine if these cases can be solved, or whether they become true UFOs. The entire files are available to who-ever may contribute his/her know-how to this endeavour.

In the majority of cases, investigation, whether by the Air Force or by independent civilian ufologists, has revealed a misinterpretation of some kind. These cases show us, on the one hand, what kinds of anomalous features may occur; and on the other, how easily people, puzzled by the sighting of unexpected luminous phenomena in the sky, can jump to erroneous conclusions.

24 November 1974: Alarm in a Radar Squadron

Grand Canary is one of the seven Spanish islands in the Atlantic Ocean which form the Canary archipelago. At about 19.30 hours on 24 November 1974, Air Force Lieutenant Colonel E.L. and his daughter were driving by the North Freeway, when they saw a bright white light in the sky leaving a short trail, travelling at great speed and disappearing a few seconds later. His statement described it as a meteorite or bolide flying horizontally in a northwest direction at some 1,000 metres.

Fifteen minutes later, at 19.45, an Iberia Fokker-27 took off from Tenerife airport en route to Las Palmas (Grand Canary Islands). On a clear night, it was flying over a stratus cloud layer to its flight level of 2,000 metres and turning northwest when the pilots sighted a powerful lightjust in front of them, in a flight corridor typically used by regular air traffic from Las Palmas to Tenerife. Iberia captain Saura called Canary Flight Control to tell them they were passing ‘traffic proceeding from Las Palmas’. By now the light had descended to 1,800 metres, the standard flight level for airplanes. Captain Saura was surpnsed to be told there was no reported flight at that position. He insisted that he had it in sight, well silhouetted against the stratus layer, at a range of some 25 km, and he asked for a check from the military radar.

The radar operator on Grand Canary duly reported that he had only the Fokker’s echo on screen: he saw no other traffic. At this point, the airliner’s crew realised to their amazement that the light had been stationary at ‘three o’clock’ for more than a minute: any normal aircraft should have sailed past by now. Full of curiosity, the Fokker’s pilot started to change course in the direction of the light. As he did so, the light seemed to shift rapidly away from the aircraft, emitting intermittent orange and yellow flashes as it vanished.

By now, the radar station had been placed in ‘alert’ situation, and their personnel started to scrutinise the skies with special care and attention. At 20.20 hours an echo was detected at 20º (NNE), 56 km distant, approaching directly towards the radar site at 500 knots; they were unable to determine its altitude.

The trace disappeared when it entered the ‘blind cone’ (vertical) of the antennae, and did not reappear. Out of doors, a light of more than 1st magnitude was sighted, fixed in the firmament (according to one witness), slowly moving around the site (according to another), while a third declared it to be nothing more than a star.

At 20.30 hours, radar detected a trace at radial 356º (north), 58 km away, which correlated with Iberia flight 281 Madrid to Tenerife. At the same time, it recorded an uncorrelated track at 326º (northwest), 74 km away, heading south. After changing direction, it remained stationary unhl passed by IB-281, where-upon it suddenly vanished. No other traffic was scheduled at that time and location.

Taken together, these observations seem to indicate that a mysterious luminous object was hanging above two of the Canary Islands for more than an hour. However, it is also legitimate to divide the complex series of events into several individual occurrences: (1) a meteor-like sighting of brief duration, (2) a light in the clouds which a nearby military radar system did not recognise, but which disappeared as soon as the pilot altered his angle of vision, (3) in an excited environment (radar operators were requested to search for UFOs with extreme care), they detected a first echo which mysteriously disappeared without a trace, another trace in the proximity of a commercial aircraft (not seen opncally by the aircrew), and finally a fixed light in the celestial vault not different from a star. In summary: a case offering radar traces which are not confirmed visually, and visual sightings which are not confirmed by radar.

No final conclusion has been adopted to date by the research team.

23 December 1985: a UFO in the Log Book

The merchant vessel Manuel Soto, owned by Transmediterránea Co., was sailing on December 23, 1985 from Las Palmas (Grand Canary island) to Arrecife (Lanzarote Island). At 03.10 hours, the third officer on duty observed in the horizon by the bow what seemed to be the rising of a heavenly body. He identified it as the star Antares. Checked ten minutes later, however, the light’s position did not correspond either with Antares or any other star or planet. The officer took measurements of the altitude and azimuth of the light, which remained stationary until 03.25 when it suddenly began to move quickly. Other members of the crew came to see what was happening.

The light approached the ship, passing directly over the vessel two minutes later. As it did, all the witnesses could perceive the object’s profile, which did not resemble that of a typical aeroplane or helicopter. The object had a very intense white light on its central part, a weaker red light near it, and another white light – not as strong – set apart. The separation between the lights made the witnesses think the object was flying low, but they could hear no sound.

The shipping company passed the log book entry to the Spanish Navy. The Navy Staff submitted it to the Air Force, but Canary Islands Air Command reported that their investigations showed no UFO observed on that date. No further investigation was made.

And so this second sighting from the Canary Islands also remains unidentified. Sadly, nothing was reported about how the object was lost out of sight. In prinaple, the behaviour of the object – approaching from the horizon, flying at a constant altitude and speed – is consistent with that of an aircraft. Nevertheless, lack of additional detail – including the actual silhouette of the craft – prevents us from developing any specific hypothesis.

8 December 1980: Aircraft on Fire?

A brief file reports – just two telephone messages – received in the Cádiz Maritime Captaincy General from merchant vessel Conquistador and fishing ship Besugo. At 20.50 hours on December 8, 1980 the first ship was navigating 35º27’N/ 7º50′ W bearing northeast, when it reported a disintegrating object over the vessel at some 20º altitude which was sighted by the captain and the radio operator.

Additionally, at 20.45 hours, personnel from the second ship, sailing in position 33º 52′ N/ 8º 55′ W, observed a fiery phenomenon in a north direction at sea level. Their impression was that it might be a passenger plane with a fire on its left engine.

In isolation, those two incidents off the Morocco coast might never have received an explanation. However, consulting our files we discovered that a significant flap of ‘UFO sightings’ originated at that time in southwest Spain. Thousands witnessed a series of incandescent objects flying in a group passing slowly overhead. The general trajectory of the luminous trail was southwest to northeast.

As described, the phenomenon is absolutely compatible with a meteor shower or a space junk re-entry: the second alternative can be discarded as no decay is known to have occurred at that date, so meteors seem the preferred explanation.

25 December 1980 Jet Propulsion UFO

On 25 December 1980, at 22.05 hours, an Air Force captain was driving along the Tudela-Arguedas road when he saw an unknown flying object with a large central body with a ‘powerful jet propulsion system’. In addition, he saw a few more tiny luminous objects manoeuvring in formation with the large one. He estimated their altitude at some 1,000 metres, course 20º (north-northeast): the speed was similar to a commercial airplane. He saw it disappear behind the mountains, leaving a smoke trail much wider than that of a plane.

In the absence of any supplementary information, this would have been simply another unidentified. But there was a thick dossier in my archives to put this event into its proper perspective. That night, a giant, fiery phenomenon was sighted over Spain and other European countries a few minutes past 21.00 GMT (one hour later in Spain) skyrocketing on a rough south-to-north course.

North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) reported the re-entry into the atmosphere of the rocket used in the launch of Soviet satellite Cosmos 749. It was travelling from southwest to northeast on an arc that would have taken it over Portugal, Spain, France and southern England. There is little doubt that this is what the officer witnessed.

19 August 1982: a Rotating Flying Saucer A civilian witness reported an unusual experience on 19 August 1982, at 22.30 hours, seen from an apartment block faang the sea in the summer resort village of Blanes (Gerona). He was with seven other people, who also watched the aerial show in astonishment. The first witness was on the terrace when he heard the sound of an aircraft and just above him he saw a circle of lights blinking regularly. Through binoculars he distinguished the shape of a ‘cylindrical disc’ which was rotating clockwise: he estimated its size as twice that of a DC-4 airplane. Speed and altitude were constant, then it made a turn so he could see it both from underneath and from the top. It had seven or eight illuminated ‘windows’. The sighting lasted around three minutes. Then and there he made some drawings of what he thought he had seen and some days later he sent a letter to Air Force Headquarters with a full description of the events and some impressive sketches.

The official report presents no conclusion at all as no investigation was ever conducted. However, a review of newspapers for August and September 1982 disclosed similar sightings in many towns of eastern and northern Spain. Not only that, the press, confirmed by Barcelona Air Control, reported that advertising aircraft carrying luminous publicity panels were active during that summer in such locations, giving rise to surprise observations and misinterpretations with UFOs. Again, we may be confident that this was what the witness saw at Blanes.

Facts and Figures

The Spanish declassification process imposes no restriction as to date. Over the years, several current incidents, whether reported to the Air Force by civilian witnesses or by military personnel, were declassified immediately after investigation – an example which other countries would do well to follow.

Since 1992, a number of UFO observations have been added to the MOA archives, both old and new, so that the original 62 files have now become 75. They amount to 1,900 pages, which anyone can read (and copy) in the Library of the Air Force Headquarters in Madrid.

The files cover a total of 97 separate events between the years 1962 to 1995, which averages about three cases per year. But we find that certain years – 1968 (23),1969 (7), 1975 (7),1977 (6), 1978 (8), 1979 (9) and 1980 (7) – seem to deviate markedly from the mean. However, examination often reveals simple down-to-earth explanations. The 1968-69 wave was clearly due to a press release by the Ministry of Air asking the public to report UFO sightings, combined with the highly visible night-time appearance of the planet Venus, plus giant meteorological balloons carried by wind from France. 1975 is conspicuous only because one file includes several cases originating with a single and unreliable informant. A 1977 file, likewise, describes a succession of contactee-type stories allegedly expenenced during a three-month period. The 1978 peak is due to a photographic fraud which involved several dates. 1979 contains some good cases, but we notice that half of them occurred in November: for this we can look to the media impact of the incident of 11 November when the crew of a Supercaravelle reported strange lights. Finally, 1980 shows a chance accumulation of varied events, totally unrelated to one another. In short, none of the fluctuations constitutes a real ‘wave’ of true UFOs.

The reports reveal 20 radar detections, 15 scrambles or launches of jet interceptors, 10 close encounters, 13 instances where photographic material exists, and 28 civilian pilot witnesses (figures not mutually exclusive). Apart from the Air Force, other official bodies making reports included the Navy (9 reports), the Civil Guard (7), the Army (5) and the Police (3).

If we look at time of day data, the following table appears:

12-18 Hrs  18-24 Hrs  00-06 Hrs 6-12 Hrs Not Known
IFOs 11% 57% 17% 12% 3%
UFOs  6% 50% 31% 13%

 

It is somewhat dismaying to find that, contrary to what we might expect, UFOs follow the same time-of-day distribution as IFOs.

As soon as files were declassified, a multidisciplinary team of experts, coordinated by myself, rushed to analyse the information. The research is not finished, as some reports present complex problems which make analysis difficult. The absence of inquiry at the time, the absence of corroboration, and insufficient information add to the complications. Nonetheless, our investigative efforts proved fruitful and we have been able to draw an array of general conclusions.

IFOs comprise 85% of the total. They break down to:

  • Astronomical explanations – the most frequent error stimulus: four out of ten observational mistakes involve Venus, other planets and stars, meteors and fireballs, or even the Moon.
  • Hoaxes explain two out of ten reports.
  • Meteorological balloons emerge as misperception culprits in one in ten cases (mostly from the French CNES programmes of 1967-1970).
  • The Miscellaneous cluster includes a variety of reasons for misinterpretation: three of every ten IFO cases are due to rockets and missiles, aircraft, reflections and temperature inversions, space junk re-entries, false radar echoes, fireworks or light projectors.

These proportions are consistent with those found in other samples, for example by Allan Hendry in 7he UFO Handbook. This suggests a world-wide pattern.

Nevertheless, 15% of the reports released by the Air Force remain to be resolved. One case (January 1,1975, Burgos) defies every explanation and anses as a true anomaly. Nine others present outstanding abnormal features and they are tunder further study. Finally, five cases have insufficient data to be evaluated.

SWEDEN

Sweden is releasing thousands of UFO files beginning May 9-10, 2009 :”Besides the 18,000 Swedish cases are thousands of cases from Denmark and other Nordic countries

 

USA

Reports and records are so extensive regarding the UFO phenomena in the United States that it is impractical to list here all relevant documents, thousands of reports can be found created by political officials right through to judges and ministers. Presidents too have revealed their knowledge and co-operation with E.B.E’s. to find 100’s of thousands of documents and incidents go online.

UNITED KINGDOM

London, England (CNN) — A hovering Toblerone and a silky-white residue join near-misses and strange lights in the British government’s latest release of its files on UFO sightings.

Made public Thursday, the files are the fifth collection of records about unidentified flying objects to be released by the Ministry of Defence and The National Archives as part of a project to open the files up to a wider audience.

Thursday’s release is the largest so far, totaling more than 6,000 pages of material from 1994 to 2000.

The files include a sighting by a man in Birmingham, England, in March 1997. He said he came home from work at 4 a.m. to see a large blue triangle-shaped craft hovering over his back garden.

It was silent but caused dogs in the neighborhood to bark, the report said. It “shot off and disappeared” after about three minutes, the report said, leaving behind a “silky-white substance” on the treetops, some of which he saved in a jar. It was not clear what happened to the jar and its contents.

Another document, from January 1997, is about a man driving home through south Wales one night when he saw “a ‘tube of light’ coming down from the sky,” which at first seemed like a “massive star” coming toward him.

The man’s mobile phone and car radio failed, the report said, and the man got out of his car and was able to walk through the light. It said he got back in his car but started feeling sick, and he soon developed a skin condition for which he had to see a doctor.

His car was left covered in dirt and dust, the report said.

Other reports are about sightings by groups of people, including one from August 1997 in which five members of a fishing trawler in the North Sea reported seeing a round, flat, shiny object hovering in the sky.

They saw it both with the naked eye and through binoculars, with the report noting, “witness very skeptical of UFOs.” They tracked the object on their radar for several seconds before it vanished, the report said.

Police officers in Boston, England, and Skegness — both on England’s east coast, caught a UFO on video at the same time that the Royal Air Force (RAF) detected an “unidentified blip” on their radar, the files show.

It happened in October 1996, when the officers saw “strange rotating red, blue, green and white flashing lights in the sky,” the report said. A ship in The Wash, a bay near Boston, also saw the lights, and at the same time RAF air defense radars picked up the blip over Boston, the report said.

Press coverage of the incident led the RAF to look into the lights, later identifying some as stars and bright planets, and attributing the radar blip to a “permanent echo” created by a nearby church spire.

The release highlights how the reported shapes of UFOs have changed during the past half-century, the National Archives said. Many of the reports in the latest file describe UFOs as big, black and triangular, whereas reports from the 1940s and ’50s tended to be about saucers or disc-shaped objects, they said.

“In the 1950s the next big leap in technology was thought to be a round craft that took off vertically, and it’s intriguing to note that this is the same period when people began to report seeing ‘flying saucers’ in the sky,” said David Clarke, author of a book called The UFO Files and a journalism lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.

He pointed out that in the years covered by the latest file release, triangle-shaped U.S. stealth bombers and Aurora spy planes featured heavily on TV shows like “The X-Files” and movies like Independence Day.

“It’s impossible to prove a direct link between what people are reading and watching and what they report as UFOs, but one interpretation could be that the latest advances in technology may be influencing what people see in the sky,” he said.

A craving for chocolate may have influenced another sighting, that of a “Toblerone-shaped” UFO hovering over Annandale, Scotland, in July 1994. The Toblerone is a triangular-shaped Swiss chocolate candy bar. The files include a sketch of the object, which showed it as 35-40 feet long and about 20 feet wide.

It hovered silently about 10 feet above a field with no lights and was “observed for at least 40 minutes,” the report said.

The release also contains several incidents involving UFOs and aircraft, such as a near-miss that happened in January 1995 when a British Airways Boeing 737 was approaching Manchester airport. The captain and a crew member saw the object, but an investigation by the Civil Aviation Authority failed to identify it, the report said.

An airliner near Glasgow Airport saw white and red flashing lights in December 1996, but the report simply concluded there was no RAF activity in the area at the time.

 

URAGUY

Uruguay Declassify UFO records.
                         

“The UFO phenomenon has manifested itself many times in Uruguay, South America. The Uruguayan Air Force (FAU) high command has declassified its files and allowed EL PAIS (The National Newspaper) to
access its UFO records and eyewitness accounts.. While the Air Force commission that studies these cases has been operating for only a few decades, the UFO phenomenon in Uruguay began in 1947, and continues
a rich history of seeing UFOs, according to Col. Ariel Sanchez, an Air Force officer with 33 years of active service and who presides over the UFO commission. The agency operates out of a small office in downtown
Montevideo and has a computer database and print archives. There are hundreds of files in green binders under the heading “Confidential”, containing eyewitness accounts, photographs, sketches, drawings,
documents and evaluations made by officials. The files consist of reports that accrue at a rate of 100 cases per year with 2100 solid reports the commission has researched and dismissed many for various reasons.
Thirty years after research began, forty cases remain unexplained. These files have been kept open, and range from sightings and landings of alleged craft to abductions, where people claim to have been kidnapped
by extraterrestrial entities.

 

VATICAN

There could be alien life forms and believing they exist isn’t contradictory to having faith in God, the top astronomer at the Vatican said in an interview published Tuesday.

In the Vatican newspaper piece, titled “The Extraterrestrial Is My Brother,” the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes said the expansiveness of the universe means there could be life on planets other than Earth.

“In my opinion this possibility exists,” Funes, the director of the Vatican Observatory, told L’Osservatore Romano. “Astronomers believe the universe is made up of 100 billion galaxies, each of which consists of 100 billion stars. … Life forms could exist in theory even without oxygen or hydrogen.”

Funes said that there might even be other intelligent life out there, but believing in its existence doesn’t pose a problem for those of the Catholic faith.

“It is possible. So far we have no proof. But certainly in a universe so big we can not exclude this hypothesis,” he told the paper.

“As there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, so there may be other beings, intelligent, created by God. This does not conflict with our faith, because we cannot put limits on the creative freedom of God.”

He said human beings could even consider another life form an “extraterrestrial brother” because it, too, would be one of God’s creatures.

“How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere?” Funes said. “Just as we consider earthly creatures as ‘a brother,’ and ‘sister,’ why should we not talk about an ‘extraterrestrial brother’? It would still be part of creation.”

The interview covered a variety of topics, including the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and science, and the theological implications of the existence of alien life.

Funes said science, especially astronomy, does not contradict religion, touching on a theme of Pope Benedict XVI, who has made exploring the relationship between faith and reason a key aspect of his papacy.

The Bible “is not a science book,” Funes said, adding that he believes the Big Bang theory is the most “reasonable” explanation for the creation of the universe. The theory says the universe began billions of years ago in the explosion of a single, super-dense point that contained all matter.

But he said he continues to believe that “God is the creator of the universe and that we are not the result of chance.”

Funes urged the church and the scientific community to leave behind divisions caused by Galileo’s persecution 400 years ago, saying the incident has “caused wounds.”

In 1633 the astronomer was tried as a heretic and forced to recant his theory that the Earth revolved around the sun. Church teaching at the time placed Earth at the center of the universe.

“The church has somehow recognized its mistakes,” he said. “Maybe it could have done it better, but now it’s time to heal those wounds and this can be done through calm dialogue and collaboration.”

Pope John Paul declared in 1992 that the ruling against Galileo was an error resulting from “tragic mutual incomprehension.”

The Vatican Observatory has been at the forefront of efforts to bridge the gap between religion and science. Its scientist-clerics have generated top-notch research and its meteorite collection is considered one of the world’s best.

The observatory, founded by Pope Leo XIII in 1891, is based in Castel Gandolfo, a lakeside town in the hills outside Rome where the pope has a summer residence. It also conducts research at an observatory at the University of Arizona, in Tucson.

Argentina

Due to the increment of information given by the population regarding sightings of unidentified aerospace phenomena, the Chief of the General Staff of the Argentinean Air Force created the Commission for the Study of Aerospace Phenomena through Resolution Nº 414. Its goal is to contribute in the search for a scientific and technical explanation of the aerospace phenomena which have not yet been identified.

The commission is composed of full time personnel of the Argentinean Air Force and specialists with a proven record in different fields of research that can contribute an invaluable support to the analysis of each field of study from different perspectives. It is fundamental for the investigation to provide actual information that can describe in detail the observed phenomenon, and to utilize the resources and collaboration of our citizenry.

Brazil

Brigadier Telles Ribeiro, chief of Brazilian Air Force Communication Center officially announced yesterday the establishment of a committee of top UFO researchers to openly discuss sightings in the country and fully exam classified UFO documents in several military facilities in Brasilia. By doing this, Brazilian Air Force has placed Brazil in the list of countries whose military acknowledge Ufology as a serious activity and significant attribute to fully understanding the nature and origin of UFOs.

Note:  This announcement came days after as many as twenty UFOs were seen and tracked by ground radar and at least six fighter jets.  Unidentified radar returns were tracked by airports in São Paulo and the Integrated Air Defense & Air Traffic Control Center (CINDACTA) in Brasilia. Two F-5E and three Mirage jet fighters were scrambled from Santa Cruz AFB in Sao Paulo State, and Anápolis AFB in Goias State.

Many more examples of official Brazilian MoD  UFO reports (Including EBE contact) can be researched via numerous books also recently released F.O.I documents.

Canada 

Apart from Canada’s defence minister recently  admitting to a congressional committee the known existence of Flying Saucers and EBE’s (refer listing below)  The Library and Archives of government records, has released thousands of files pertaining to UFO’S which were acquired from the following four federal departments and agencies:

  • Department of National Defence
  • Department of Transport
  • National Research Council
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

These documents were part of secret UFO investigation projects between 1947 and the early 1980s. There are approximately 9,500 digitized documents in a variety of formats, including correspondence, reports, memos and procedures. Some are specifically concerned with particular UFO sightings, while others are more generic in nature; these may consist of reporting forms and procedures for recording events.

Although most documents contain a date (pertaining either to a sighting date or the date the document was actually created), some are undated.

Chile

Chile’s Office of Civil Aeronautics handed over a number of videos or audiotapes of UFO events that occurred in its territory.

Chile appears to take the subject earnestly and is concerned over UFO manifestations: both the presence of these unknown quantities and their consequences. “There is no longer any need to deny or ignore the UFO situation. They represent a real and very serious threat. Today were are challenged by a complex phenomenon whose characteristics cannot be explained within natural terrestrial confines.”

In December 2010, the Argentinean Air Force (FAA) created its own Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aeroespaciales with a view toward delving deeper into UFO study, increasing the number of official agencies involved with UFO research in South America

China

One of the heads of China’s famous Purple Mountain Astronomical Observatory, Prof. Wang Sichao, has gone public admitting the UFOs are real and that EBE’s are visiting Earth and that the observatory has observed their craft for many years. 

The key points that Wang Sichao has disclosed are that:

  • EBE’s are visiting Earth on R & D expeditions
  • These craft travel at eighty percent the speed of light.
  • These craft have been seen by the observatory many times at between 150 and 1500 kilometers above Earth.

39 years of work at Purple Mountain Observatory has led Wang to believe these craft use Earth’s gravity to manouvure and stay aloft

Denmark

The top secret UFO files compiled by Denmark’s Air Force over the past 30 years have finally been declassified and opened to public perusal. Some 15,000 reported UFO sightings are detailed in the files. The Danish government decided to release the files because they felt “there was nothing secret in the files or anything people didn’t already realise.”

Finland

Finnish officials have filmed UFOs by infrared video at least twice, November 2003 and April 2005. The Finnish UFO Research Association FUFORA has received the videos for further analysis.

“No normal explanations have been found, neither by officials nor UFO researchers”, says Tapani Koivula, chairman of FUFORA.

According to the representatives of FUFORA the UFOs filmed by Finnish officials resemble the objects seen and filmed abroad lately. “A rod shape is typical,” says Mr. Koivula. “This is not the first time our officials have got UFO sightings. Many Air Force and Finnair pilots have seen UFOs during the last 50 years. Both the Finnish Air Force and Finnair have followed the general international style not to publish the sightings. They feel that because there are no normal explanations for UFOs, it is better to be silent. but now with millions of sightings worldwide they have approved the release of many classified UFO documents…    Ilpo Koskinen, pilot  has stated that he estimated that every fourth pilot has seen a UFO.”

Germany 

While many members of the military as well as private pilots (most prominently the former chief pilot of the German airline “Lufthansa”) publicly confirmed their very own first hand observations and experiences with unidentified flying objects, all official enquiries for example to the German Department of Defense  were replied with statements denying any official German interest or knowledge about UFOs at all.

However, such an alleged lack of interest does not make any sense at all, as other NATO members, partner countries and states, such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy and France (only to name a few…) have already gone public with their former UFO-files that were collected and investigated for several decades. According to Fleischer, it is impossible that Germany as one of the leading European countries, had and has no interest in a matter of national security, that got and gets investigated by so many of his neighbors and NATO-partners.”

INDIA 

Guess speaker – He first started by saying new technology is evolving and new achievements are being made in Aerospace. The students stared questioning him on different aspects of this new technologies and where this technology came from! Then the students started challenging him as if he was really joking – at that moment he started providing vivid descriptions of the landing base. Ladakh is a land like no other. Bounded by two of the world’s mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar range. Ladakh lies at altitudes ranging from about 9,000 feet (2750m) at Kargil to 25,170 feet (7,672m) at Saser Kangri in the Karakoram. Thus summer temperatures rarely exceed about 27 degree Celsius in the shade, while in winter they may plummet to minus 20 degree Celsius even in Leh. Surprisingly, though, the thin air makes the heat of the sun even more intense than at lower altitudes; it is said that only in Ladakh can a man sitting in the sun with his feet in the shade suffer from sunstroke and frostbite at the same time! In Leh, Ladakh, according to Tsering Spalzang, a senior official, all paranormal activities are happening with the knowledge of the Indian Army. There are zones that Indian Army and Air Force block for security reasons. The Ladakh valley is heavily secured by the Indian Government. It is a sensitive area and no one is allowed in these sensitive areas – neither from Indian side nor from the Chinese side. The terrain is such that it is impossible to find hidden underground structures under massive mountains – you are looking at the core Himalayas. The Petroleum Ministry of India when recently asked about recent high oil price, said that India is developing alternative energy sources with advanced technologies. When asked about, what kind of alternative technologies, the spokesperson hurriedly brought the press conference to a quick end by saying those are really classified information.

JAPAN

 “The phenomenal stupidity of the general media was never more apparent when reporters laughed as Japan’s main government spokesman, Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura, said in answer to a press conference question that UFOs ‘definitely exist.’  Machimura’s comment was another in a long line of comments by former and current government officials from many countries that goes back years, either admitting that UFOs exist or may exist.

Committee Reveals Document

Existence of the document was revealed by the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.  The privately financed committee accused the Air Force of deception in publicly describing reports of unidentified flying objects as delusions and hoaxes while sending the private admonition to its commands.
Vice Admiral R. H. Hillenkoetter (Ret.), a committee board member and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said in a statement that a copy of the inspector general’s warning had been sent to the Senate Science and Astronautics Committee.
“It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings,” he said.”
The Air Force confirmed that the document had been issued. A spokesman said it was put out by Maj. Gen. Richard E. O’Keefe, acting inspector general at the time, to call attention to revised Air Force regulations concerning unidentified flying objects.
The statement was included in an “operations and training” pamphlet circulated at intervals to bring commands up to date.
Pentagon aides said the new regulations covering seven printed pages, made no substantive change in policy but had been rewritten as a matter of course.
The Air Force has investigated 6,132 reports of flying objects since 1947, including 183 in the last six months of 1959. The latest Air Force statement, issued a month ago said, “no physical or material evidence, not even a minute fragment of a so-called flying saucer, has ever been found.”
Admiral Hillenkoetter said that “behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFO’s.”
“But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense,”
 the retired admiral said. He charged that “to hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel” through the issuance of a regulation.

Prime Minister’s and Military Personnel

UFO STATEMENTS and QUOTES

 Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s  

In 2013 after an influx of UFO reports the Russian Prime Minister openly and via media publicly warned President Obama that the “time has come” for the world to know the truth about aliens, and if the United States won’t participate in the announcement the Kremlin will. I tell you the first and last time. Together with a nuclear suitcase the president has a folder, which is top secret and devoted entirely to the report by the Russian secret service which handles the control of extraterrestrials in our country. After the term, the two folders and a small nuclear suitcase are transferred to the new president. How many of them are among us I cannot say because panic might begin

President  Obama  2013

I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrials, but I can tell you, if there had been a top secret meeting, and if there would have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room. ( Refer also a lengthy comment made further down this list.)

President Harry S. Truman,

1st comment …  I can assure you that, given they exist, these flying saucers are made by no power on this Earth.”

2nd Comment … I have regular meetings with the airforce and they still cant provide me with any information, there’s always things like this going on, flying saucers and things…

President Richard M. Nixon

“I’m not at liberty to discuss the governments knowledge of extraterrestrial UFO’s at this time. I am still personally being briefed on the subject!”

President Gerald Ford

“No doubt, you have noted the recent flurry of newspaper stories about unidentified flying objects. I have taken special interest in these accounts because many of the latest reported sightings have been in my home state of Michigan… Because I think there may be substance to some of these reports and because I believe the American people are entitled to a more thorough explanation than has been given them by the Air Force to date, I am proposing that either the Science and Astronautics Committee or the Armed Services
Committee of the House schedule hearings on the subject of UFOs and invite testimony from both the executive branch of the Government and some of the persons who claim to have seen UFOs… In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject.

President Jimmy Carter

“I don’t laugh at people any more when they say they’ve seen UFOs. It was the
darndest thing I’ve ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and
it was about the size of the moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us
could figure out what it was. One thing’s for sure I’ll never make fun of people
who say they’ve seen unidentified objects in the sky. “I am convinced that UFOs exist because I have seen one.” While at a Wisconsin press conference in 1976, a few months prior to his election victory, Carter was asked if, as President, he would, “air what’s behind closed doors in regards to UFOs.” “Yes,” replied Carter, “I would make these kinds of data available to the public… to help resolve the mystery about it.” Later that same year, however, when the now President-elect asked outgoing Director of Central Intelligence George Bush Sr. for, “the information that we have on UFOs and Extraterrestrial intelligence,” Bush denied Carter’s request, stating that, “simple curiosity on the part of the President” was inadequate, as the information existed, “on a need to know basis only.

President Ronald Reagen

“I looked out the window and saw this white light.It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and said,Have you ever seen anything like that? He was shocked and he said, “Nope.” And I said to him: “Let’s follow it!” We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light.We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens. When I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it.”

Towards the end of his speech to the Forty-second Session General Assembly of the United Nations. on September 21, 1987, the President said that, “in our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond.  “I occasionally think,” continued Reagan, “how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask” “is not an alien force ALREADY among us?”

President John F. Kennedy

“The US Airforce assures me that UFO’s pose no threat to National Security.”

President Kennedy and other officials present once sighted a UFO. The event occurred in 1963, while boating off Hyannisport on Cape Cod. The object was “disc-shaped, about 60 feet in diameter, with a gray top, and shiny bottom.” It hovered above the water for 40 seconds, emitting a low pitched humming sound. Then it flew straight up in the air and was gone. Kennedy swore those present to keep the incident secret. It was only after Kennedy’s assassination that the information was revealed by one of those present. (Name withheld)

On another occasion Bill Holden, was on board Air Force One with Kennedy flying to Europe in the summer of 1963. A UFO convention being held in Bonn Germany that month prompted Holden to bring up the subject of UFOs with the President. Holden asked “What do you think about UFOs, Mr. President? According to the account Kennedy became quite serious thinking for a moment. “I’d like to tell the public about the UFO situation” he stated, ” but my hands are tied.” he was assassinated very soon after and rumor has it, in his pocket was a speech which included UFO discloser. Like his brain, it went missing after the autopsy.

Prime minister  Mikhail Gorbachev

“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously.”

President Ilyumzhinov President of Kalymkia

President Ilyumzhinov  stated in an interview on prime time television that he had been taken on board an alien spaceship which had come to planet Earth to take samples – and can produce several witnesses which includes his driver, a Minister, and his assistant.” He added : They communicated with me via telepathy.

President Bill Clinton 

In April 2014 UFO buffs, and reporters, where poised at their televisions last night, ready to find out if Jimmy Kimmel would keep his promise when the other night he said he would ask Clinton about UFOs when he came on the show. Kimmel kept his promise, and in typical Kimmel fashion, in a light hearted and funny way. However, he did get some interesting and heartfelt comments from the former president.

Kimmel brought up the subject by saying that if he were president he would immediately go find out about UFOs. He said, “I probably wouldn’t even finish the oath. I would run to the White House. I’d demand to see all of the classified files on the UFOs because I want to know. I want to know what has been going on. Did you do that?”

Clinton replied, “Sort of.”

Clinton said he began looking into it at the beginning of his second term, during the 50th anniversary of the alleged Roswell UFO crash. Kimmel was surprised he waited so long. Clinton also said he looked into Area 51.

Kimmel suggested, “Oh, you are trying to give me a hint that there are aliens.”

Clinton replied, “No, I am trying to tell you I don’t know, but if we were visited some day I wouldn’t be surprised.

Finally, Clinton embarked some sentiments, and repeated several times, that if there was an alien threat that humans would need to unite and forget our petty difference.

Clinton by far, more than any other president, has demonstrated the biggest presidential interest in UFOs. Every time he has talked on the subject he has left open the possibility that there could be more to the subject than we know. It seems he has been open to the idea of alien visitation for some time, even before it was cool. And yes, it is now very cool to believe in aliens.

President Clinton also stated on a separate occasion that,  “We are going to come up against the limits of our mortality in a way we never could before, and a lot of the things that will happen will be stranger than anything ever written in science fiction”.

 

President George Herbert Walker Bush ( Born 1924 ) 

” Yes, I know some. I know a fair amount.”
[Replying in 1988 to a question about UFOs while campaigning]

Some feel that George W. Bush actually knows a great deal about what is going on regarding UFOs.  Bush had solid knowledge of the UFO situation because of his former role as Director of Central Intelligence under President Ford, his eight-years as vice-president under President Reagan, and his four-years as President.

President George  Walker Bush ( Born 1946 ) 

Whilst campaigning for the presidency,  Governor Bush was asked, When you become president, Would you finally tell us what the hell is going on with UFO’s as half the public believes that they are real.
BUSH’s  response was – Sure, I will. This man [points to Cheney]
knows. He was Secretary of Defense.

Dennis John Kucinich ( 1946)

Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives and was a candidate
for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008
elections.

Journalist question to Kucinich –  Did you see a UFO?
Kuninich response: “… I did … It was an unidentified flying object .. I saw something. ”
[ Presidential Debate, Philadelphia, October 30, 2007, )

Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy 

Also known as RFK, he was an American politician, a Democratic Senator from New York,
and a noted civil rights activist. An icon of modern American liberalism, he was a
younger brother of President John F. Kennedy and acted as one of his advisers during his
presidency. From 1961 to 1964, he was the U.S. Attorney General.

When asked about UFO’s RFK responded by saying  “I am keeping myself abreast of information developed on this subject.”

” If it were desirable to hold congressional hearings on the question of unidentified flying objects, I would certainly agree that they should be open to the public.”

                                           

 Senator Barry Morris Goldwater 

A five-term United States Senator  and the Republican Party’s nominee for President in the 1964 election. A retired Air Force Reserve Brigadier General and pilot.

“I certainly believe in aliens  and that they are indeed visiting our planet. They may not all look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities.”

“It is true that I was denied access to a facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
in Dayton, Ohio,  I can’t tell you what was inside. We both know about the rumors concerning a captured UFO and crew members. I have never seen what I would call a UFO, but I have intelligent friends who have.”

 Steven Harvey Schiff ( House of representatives) 

He served as a member of the United States House of Representatives,  from 1989 until his death in 1998.
“I was not told that we have a file that’s classified. I was simply referred to an agency which I have to believe – now that I know the prominence of the Roswell incident – I have to believe the Dept. of Defense knew very well that I wasn’t going to find anything in the National Archives when they sent me there twice.”

“It’s difficult for me to understand even if there was a legitimate security concern in 1947, that it would be a present security concern these many years later. Frankly I am baffled by the lack of responsiveness on the part of the Defense Dept. on the UFO issue, I simply can’t explain it.”

                                               Senator Richard Brevard Russell, Jr. 

Regarding the UFO phenomena, “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.”

Governor John Fife Symington III 

 He served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War, stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Maricopa County, Arizona.
“I’m a pilot and I know just about every machine that flies, It was bigger than anything that I’ve ever seen. It remains a great mystery. Other people saw it, responsible people. I don’t know why people would ridicule it.”

Governor Fife Symington, III,

Ten years after the Arizona UFO incident known as the ‘Phoenix Lights’, former Arizona Republican Governor Fife Symington, III, now says that he himself was a witness to one of the strange unidentified flying objects, even though he originally did not say so publicly at the time.

                                    Governor William Blaine “Bill” Richardson III 
T U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, served as a U.S.Representative and as the U.S. Secretary of Energy.
“I’ve been in government a long time, I’ve been in the cabinet, I’ve been in the
Congress and I’ve always felt that the government doesn’t tell the truth as much
as it should on a lot of issues. When I was in Congress I said to the Department
of Defense, ‘What is the data you have on UFO’s ?’ I was told that the records were
classified. That ticked me off.
“The federal government has not come clean on the UFO issue and it should. They have not and do not produce documents on this subject … That is a historical fact.”

George A. McCalvy  Deputy Secretary of State, California

“When the mysterious light first appeared it was seen moving rapidly from the
northeast and heading in a southwesterly direction. As it neared the southern
boundary of the city of Sacramento it turned directly toward the west and after
passing the city went south, being distinctly visible for upward of 20 minutes.”

Japanese cabinet secretary.Nobutaka Machimura

Yes, UFOs do exist”, This statement was made by a cabinet minister during one of his regular media briefings on Government policy. Reporters were also told that the Japanese government is still investigating hundreds of sightings and this will be followed by an official announcement when the GOVERNMENT is ready to go PUBLIC with all the evidence they have accumulated.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull  

Turnbull claimed not to be informed on the UFO subject and stated   UFO information is considered “above top secret, the highest classification of secrecy.”

General Douglas Mcarther   

‘The next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.

Sarah Newcomb McClendon 

Long-time White House reporter, and Dean of the White House Press Corps who
covered presidential politics for a half-century.
“The real danger to the U.S. and perhaps this whole planet is the government
has placed such a heavy blanket of secrecy upon the UFO issue. So much secrecy,
those in government who have knowledge showing UFOs are identifiable feel
the subject cannot be discussed by those in the know without serious
repercussions. Others are afraid their friends and co-workers will think they are
crazy if they even so much as insinuate that UFOs are identifiable as manned
craft from outside the earth. This particularly applies to newspaper editors and
publishers, reporters and analysts.
“Not publicized but true is that the Clinton administration, soon after coming to
office, had many briefings on the subject. Laurance Rockefeller provided the
information for the President and Mrs. Clinton. Others provided documents and
verbal briefings to presidential advisors Jack Gibbons (science), Bruce Lindsay
(personal), Anthony Lake (national security) and Vice President Albert Gore.

Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso

 Lt. Col Phillip J. Corso was the Chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk in Army Research and Development, working under Lt. Gen. Arthur Trudeau
“Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer
crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the
integrated circuit chip, laser and fibre optic technologies, particle beams,
electromagnetic propulsion systems, depleted uranium projectiles, stealth
capabilities, and many others. How do I know? I was in charge. ”
of the extraterrestrial artifacts recovered from a crash at Roswell, New
Mexico, in 1947. Corso says a covert government group was assembled under
the leadership of the first Director of Central Intelligence, Adm. Roscoe H.
Hillenkoetter. Among its tasks was to collect all information on off-planet
technology. The US administration simultaneously discounted the existence of
flying saucers in the eyes of the public, Corso says. According to Corso, the
reverse engineering of these artifacts indirectly led to the development of
accelerated particle beam devices, fiber optics, lasers, integrated circuit chips and
Kevlar material.

Paul Hellyer Canadian Defence Minister

Canada’s minister of National Defence stated last month in Washington D.C. that aliens are living among us and that it is likely at least two of them are working with the U.S. government.  He also asserted during a meeting chaired by 6 congressman that “At least four species” of alien have been visiting Earth for “thousands of years.” – Some of the aliens hail from the “Zeta Reticuli, the Pleiades, Orion, Andromeda, and Altair star systems” and “may have different agendas.”.

 Admiral Lord Peter Hill-Norton

There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.

and another time     

There is undeniable evidence that we are being visited and have been visited for many years  by people from outer space or from earth internal civilizations.

 Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter.  February 28, 1960,

“It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel”

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UPI)–The Air Force has sent its commands a warning to treat sightings of unidentified flying objects as “serious business” directly related to the nation’s defense, it was learned today.
An Air Force spokesman confirmed issuance of the directive after portions of it were made public by a private “flying saucer” group.
The new regulations were issued by the Air Force inspector general Dec. 24.
The regulations, revising similar ones issued in the past, outlined procedures and said that “investigations and analysis of UFO’s are directly related to the Air Force’s responsibility for the defense of the United States.”

         Prince Phillip, United Kingdom

His Royal Highness, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II. He is Britain’s
longest-serving consort and the oldest serving spouse of a reigning monarch.
“There are many reasons to believe that UFOs do exist: there is so much
evidence from reliable witnesses.”

   Monsignor Corrado Balducci 

Former Vatican theologian and close friend to the pope, who was charged with studying
reports of UFOs sent in from Vatican embassies around the world.

“We can no longer think … is it true? … There are already numerous
considerations which make the existence of these beings into a certainty we
cannot doubt.”
“As God’s power is limitless, it is not only possible but also likely that inhabited
planets exist.”

Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer

The Chief of Operations of the Royal Belgian Air Force, Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer (now Major General and Deputy Chief of the Belgian Air Force), set up a Special Task Force Unit to work closely with the Gendarmerie to investigate the sightings as soon as they were reported. Among the thousands of witnesses were many military and police officers, pilots, scientists and engineers. The wave was documented by the Belgian Society for the Study of Space Phenomena (SOBEPS), a private organization from Brussels, which published two thick volumes on the UFO wave.

LT COL. Richard French 

Oh, I don’t think, I know beyond a doubt they were USO’S and that there were aliens aboard them. There’s no question in my mind that is exactly what it was,

Brigadier General Steven Lovekin

“While working under President Eisenhower,I discovered that Eisenhower had a keen interest in UFOs, but that he came to realize that he had lost control of the subject”.

Brigadier Atheneu Azambuja 

Azambuja openly admitted that the Brazil has systematically detected and registered UFOs – labeled as “H Traffic” – since 1954. and how concerned the Brazilian military are about the UFO phenomena.

Commander Graham Bethune   US Navy,

The UFO was very large. It came up to 10,000 feet like that – a fraction of a second. I thought it was going to go right through us. So I disengaged the autopilot, pushed the nose over, because I was going to go under it at the angle that it was coming toward me. … We were not supposed to tell even our wives of our encounter. …

Brigadier General Stephen Lovekin 

This UFO phenomena is the biggest security situation that this country has ever had to deal with, there have been some erasures. … He said, “You will be erased – disappear.” If you discuss this subject openly. Those threats have been made and carried out. Those threats started way back in 1947. They will go after not only you, they will go after your family so shut up!

Lieutenant Colonel Dwynne Arneson  

I was a top secret control officer when a classified memo came through my communications center  which said, “A UFO has crashed on the Island of Spitsbergen, Norway, and a team of scientists are heading to investigate it.”

Russian Air Force,  General Vasily Alexeyev

As a rule, places where UFOs appear are objects of strategic significance…The Air Force came up with a table with pictures of all the shapes of UFOs that had ever been recorded—about fifty—ranging from ellipses and spheres to something resembling spaceships….The study of UFOs may reveal some new forms of energy, or at least bring us closer to a solution

Vasily Yeremenko, Russian  Major General

Pilots often see such objects, but they have a veto on this topic, so do astronauts. In confidential conversations they talk about their experiences meeting with UFOs, but they are afraid to speak publicly about this,

US Navy Atlantic Command, Merle Shane McDow

We had contact with an unidentified flying object that had entered our air space. The order was given by Admiral Trane to get this object forced down out of the sky if at all possible, by whatever means possible.

Russian Major General Vasily Alexeyev

Hopefully the study of UFOs will reveal some new forms of energy to us, or at least bring us closer to a solution

       Colonel Ross Dedrickson US Air Force,

We were getting reports of visits by UFOs over the storage facilities and even some of the manufacturing facilities. That went on continuously. There were incidents where we had launched into space a couple of nuclear weapons that were destroyed by the extraterrestrials. One of these occasions was actually videoed.  There was another incident when we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the moon and explode it for scientific measurements. The extraterrestrials. Simply  destroyed the weapon whilst on its way to the moon.

            Colonel  William Coleman   US AIRFORCE

 personally, I had an encounter with a ‘classic flying saucer’ over Alabama in 1955 while piloting a B-25 bomber. The 75-foot-diameter, circular disc got so close to the ground that it left a trail of dust behind it before vanishing in the sky at an incredible speed.

                                               US Army, Colonel Thomas E. Bearden

Probably 50 inventors have invented virtually cost-free energy systems. If we use these systems, we can clean up this biosphere. But, what we have is a situation where the entire structure of science, industry, and the patent office are against you. I’ve been a victim of quite a bit of suppression. And behind this, we have a few people who are quite wealthy. The more powerful the agency, the more they will resort not only to legal, but to extra-legal means to suppress their competition. Lethal force is used. .

 USAF Chief of Staff General George S. Brown

“I don’t know whether this story has ever been told or not. They weren’t called UFOs. They were called enemy helicopters. And they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ in the early summer of ’68. And this resulted in quite a little battle. And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer took a hit and we never found any enemy, we only found ourselves when this had all been sorted out. And this caused some shooting there, and there was no enemy at all involved but we always reacted. Always after dark. The same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in ’69.”

Major Mannsman US Air Force

regarding the destruction of a warhead in space, Mannsman  was told “You are never to speak of this again.”  After an article I wrote about the incident years later, I would get phone calls all night long. People would call and start screaming at me. One night somebody blew up my mailbox.. 

US Marine Corps, Captain Bill Uhouse

The flight simulator was for the extraterrestrial craft a 30 meter one that crashed back in 1953. I was inside the actual alien craft for a start-up….There are probably two or three dozen similar craft that we built.

                                                   US Air Force, Master Sergeant Dan Morris

UFOs are both extraterrestrial and manmade….It’s not that our government doesn’t want us to know that there are people on other planets. What the people in power don’t want us to know is that this free energy [from energy generators developed with UFO technology] is available to everybody. So secrecy about the UFOs is because of the energy issue. When this knowledge is found out by the people, they will demand that our government release this technology, and it will change the world.

Donald Keyhoe  USA Major Marine and Aircorps

 “The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs. For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent control.”  The above was stated during a CBS live interview with keyhoe in 1958 the programme was pull immediately of air.

Sergeant Chuck Sorrells  US Air Force,

In those days [1965], every base had what they called a UFO officer

Sergeant Michael W. Smith    US Air Force,

I was on the radar, and NORAD called me and informed me that there was a UFO coming up the California coast. I said, “What do you want me to do?” And they said, “Nothing. Just watch it. Don’t write it down.”

                                  Nick Pope British Ministry of Defense,

My duties were to research and investigate the UFO phenomenon for the UK government. There have been a steady stream of good-quality cases which would convince any open-minded observer that there was something going on in space which went significantly farther than just lights in the sky.

They said, “We are going to show you a film that might help you put into perspective what you gentlemen have witnessed.” They ran the film. The best clip on it showed the berets of the Fifth Special Forces in Vietnam with low scrub brush and a guy with a camera. He turns the camera and this giant, green, delta-shaped thing rises out of the brush very slowly and deliberately, below where they are, up to face level. Shrubbery and brush is falling off this massive thing. I’ll never forget that in my life! … The only reason I have my records is because I was advised to steal some of them by an Air Force Colonel, because he said they would vaporize you.

They are not hostile toward us. We are the enemy in this instance. It is not a scary story. The ETs have a perception of God. They are living, breathing creatures as mortal as you and me.

Lieutenant Walter Haut   Roswell Army Air Base

We had in our possession a flying saucer. It was found on a ranch up north of Roswell. It was being flown to General Ramey’s office. The information was given to me, almost verbatim, by Colonel Blanchard.

           Colonel Philip J. Corso, Sr.   US Army, National Security Council,

I went back and there were five crates. I lifted one up and here’s this body floating in fluid. First, I thought it was a child because it was small. Then I looked at its head and all. The head was different. The arms were thin. The body was gray. So right at that moment I figured I don’t know what this thing is. … The one ET craft I saw was at one of the airbases. … General Trudeau created the Foreign Technology Division and put me in charge of it. There I started getting the autopsy reports of ETs, and I started getting other crash reports and the artifacts from the crashes. … We gave information about the ET technologies out and insisted the corporations take the patents. We put the integrated circuit out. The general said, “let’s keep a secret, but when I die, I relieve you of my oath.”

                                                US Air Force, FAA, Captain Robert Salas
The security guard called and said, “Sir, there’s a glowing red object hovering right outside the front gate. I’ve got all the men out here with their weapons drawn.” We lost between 16 to 18 ICBMs [nuclear-tipped InterContinental Ballistic Missiles] at the same time UFOs were in the area and were observed by airmen….A high-ranking Air Force Officer said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report.” Many of the guards that were witnesses and reported the incident were sent off to Viet Nam.

Dr. H. Marshall Chadwell

Former Assistant Director, Office of Scientific Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency
“Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitude and traveling at high speeds
in the vicinity of major US defense installations are of such nature that they are
not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”

US Air Force, Professor Robert Jacobs

So this thing UFO fires a beam of light at the warhead, hits it and then it moves to the other side and fires another beam of light. And the warhead tumbles out of space. What message would I interpret from that?  The UFOs were telling us don’t mess with nuclear warheads….

Allen Welsh Dulles 

Director of Central Intelligence (1953–61), de facto head of the U.S. Central Intelligence
Agency and a member of the Warren Commission. “Maximum security exists concerning the subject of UFOs.”

Victor Marchetti

Former Special Assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency
“We have, indeed, been contacted – perhaps even visited – by extraterrestrial
beings, and the U.S. government, in collusion with the other national powers of
the earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”
“Such extreme conclusions are not necessarily valid, but they probably
accurately reflect the fears of the ‘ruling classes’ of the major nations, whose
leaders particularly those in the intelligence business have always advocated
excessive governmental secrecy as being necessary to preserve ‘national
security.”

Fairchild Industries Corporate Manager, Wernher Von Braun’s


In 1974, founder of modern rocket science Von Braun told me that the reasons for space-based weaponry were all based on a lie. He said the strategy was to use scare tactics that first the Russians, then terrorists are going to be considered the enemy. The next enemy was asteroids. “The last card is the alien card.  We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens, and all of it is a lie.”….I was at a meeting in Fairchild Industries in the War Room. The conversation was about how they were going to antagonize these enemies and at some point, there was going to be a Gulf War. Now this is 1977

 Director  J. Edgar Hoover

Hoover was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States., he was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972.
“I would aid the Army Air Force in its UFO investigations but before agreeing to
it we must insist upon full access to the discs already recovered.” For instance in the LA
(Los Alamos) case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory
examination.

“UFOs are considered top secret by intelligence officers of both the Army and
the Air Forces.” “The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been requested to assist in the
investigation of reported sightings of flying disks…”

“An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had
been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape
with raised centers. Approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied
by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall. Dressed in metallic cloth of a
very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout
suits used by speed flyers and test pilots.”

FAA Chief of Accidents and Investigations, John Callahan

The UFO was bouncing around the 747. It was a huge ball with lights running around it….Well, I’ve been involved in a lot of cover-ups with the FAA. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. But they never had me swear it never happened. I can tell you what I’ve seen with my own eyes. I’ve got a videotape. I’ve got the voice tape. I’ve got the reports that were filed that will confirm what I’ve been telling you.

Monsignor Corrado Balducci  – Vatican official and Theologian

We can’t anymore deny that something is happening here,. Not just flying saucers, but there might be actual people, beings, extraterrestrial beings.

John Callahan FAA Division Chief

This particular incident started with a phone call from the people in Alaska. They kept repeating “the UFO was bouncing around the 747 here.” …

National Security Agency, James Kopf  US Navy,

The UFO incident occurred on the USS John F. Kennedy in the summer of 1971. We observed a large, glowing sphere over the ship. It looked huge. I would say it was anywhere from three or four hundred feet to a quarter of a mile depending on how high it was. A few days later, the Commanding Officer looked at the camera – and I will never forget this –

                                    Canadian Transport Department,  Wilbur Smith

Flying saucers exist. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the US Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb

                                 Lieutenant, Professor Robert Jacobs US Air Force

During a space missile test  this UFO just appears and fires a beam of light at the warhead, hits it, and then it moves to the other side and fires another beam of light, and then moves again and fires another beam, and another before existing at a rapid speed. The warhead JUST tumbled out of space.

                                                   US Marine Corps, Captain Bill Uhouse

The simulator that they used was for the extraterrestrial craft they had, which is a 30-meter one that crashed in Kingman, Arizona, back in 1953 or 1952. I was inside the actual alien craft for a start-up. Over the last 40 years or so, not counting simulators – I’m talking about actual craft – there are probably two or three dozen, and various sizes that we built

                              Mark McCandlish  US Air Force, Aerospace Illustrator,

This craft was what they called the Alien Reproduction Vehicle. It was also nicknamed the Flux Liner. This flying saucer was one of three that were in this hangar at Norton Air Force Base

                                Dr. Paul Czysz   Professor of Aeronautical Engineering,

When I was at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, we had flying saucers that covered the distance from Columbus to Detroit in the equivalent of about 20,000 miles per hour. I know people today that worked on one of these things I worked on, and if you asked them about it, they would say, “No, I have no idea what you’re talking about.” They’re in their seventies now, but they still absolutely would never admit that they even know what you’re talking about. Threats of 50 years ago are still of concern. .

                                                   Stanely A. Fulham, NORAD officer 

On June 26th 2010 Stanley Fulham stated to the US media also YOUTUBE  “ I predict that on October 13th  2010, dozens of UFO’s will appear over most major cities in the USA”.

On October 13th just as predicted, several dozen UFOs were sighted over New York City. The sightings began around midday and lasted until early evening. They were sighted by hundreds, and filmed by witnesses and television crews. Multible videos of the UFOs have been broadcast. There was no official comment from government authorities over the source of the UFOs that maintained a steady position for hours on end. The October 13 sighting would be like so many other unexplained UFO sightings over major cities, except for one notable exception. Stanley A. Fulham, a retired NORAD officer, actually predicted October 13 as the date that extraterrestrial visitors would appear. He states also that the visitation is merely an initial step in a process to educate the world public that we are not alone. Astonishingly, his prediction was validated by the mass UFO sighting in New York, as well as in other major cities. So we are likely to have more predictions from Fulham in the months and years ahead about mass UFO sightings he claims will culminate in an overt extraterrestrial intervention by 2015. At the very least, Fulham has gotten the attention of many who did not give much thought to his October 13 prediction. We will certainly pay closer attention the next time he predicts UFOs appearing in a process that indisputably demonstrates the existence of extraterrestrial life.

“What I found [in doing research for the book Project Delta] was compelling

aerospace vehicles under highly ‘intelligent’ control indeed.”

“In 1967 I was in charge of the Communication Center, the Twentieth Air Division
at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana. I was again the top-secret control officer
there. I dispatched all the nuclear launch authentications to the SAC missile
crews, so — I had a very good top-secret background. One day, I happened to
see a message that came through my communications center. There again, I
cannot quote the date, where it came from, where it was going to, but I do recall
reading it and seeing it. It said, basically, that ‘A UFO was seen near missile silos’
… ‘and it was hovering.’ It said that the crew going on duty and the crew coming
off duty all saw the UFO just hovering in mid-air. It was a metallic circular object
and from what I understand, the missiles were all shut down.”
“One instance was back in 1962 when I was a lieutenant at Ramstein Air Force
Base in Germany. I was the crypto officer for the entire Ramstein Air Base. I was
a top-secret control officer. And in that capacity, I happened to see a classified
message go through my com center, which said that “A UFO has crashed on the
Island of Spitsbergen, Norway, and a team of scientists are coming to investigate
it.”

“The UFO was buried in the side of a cliff”. When I first saw it, I was scared. I
think the creatures calmed me…[Later, I was arrested by an Air Force officer.

don’t obey. We just do what we want. And if you tell anybody about us or the

“Of course it is possible that UFO’s really do contain aliens as many people
believe, and the government is hushing it up. I wouldn’t like to comment on
that.”   I will say however that “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans … I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.”

“In my mind, there is no question that they’re out there. My Career is well

They have been tracked on radar screens… and the observed speeds have been as great as 9,000 mph. I am convinced that these objects do exist and they are not manufactured by any nation on earth.

Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer, Chief of Operations for the Belgian Air Force in 1990

“The Air Force has arrived at the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced in Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations….reinforced by the reports of the night March 30-31 (1990) have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorised aerial activities have taken place.
The day will undoubtedly come when the phenomenon will be observed with the technological means of detection and collection that won’t leave a single doubt about its origin. This should lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time; a mystery that continues to be present. But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion.”

      President Obama  ( An unscheduled white house press conference in late 2013 )

WASHINGTON D. C. – President Barack Obama announced that extra-terrestrial aliens have been controlling the world’s major governments since shortly after the end of World War II. President Obama made the stunning declaration at an unscheduled White House press conference early this morning.

“This has been going on since the 1950s,” President Obama told the crowd of stunned reporters, “They were attracted to our planet in large numbers due to our discovery of atomic fission, to our use of nuclear weapons.”

Obama described how the 1947 Roswell incident involved a type of alien popularly known as The Greys, who were the first to make themselves outwardly known.

“Today, practically every human being on earth knows what a Grey alien looks like,” the President said with a shrug, “Once contact was established with the Greys, President Truman made a deal with them, letting them build bases here in exchange for technology. After that, President Eisenhower met with a group of aliens commonly known as the Nordics, who are similar enough to terrestrial humans to move among us almost completely unnoticed. They offered us a place in the universal brotherhood of enlightenment if we were willing to disarm ourselves of nuclear weapon. Unfortunately, both we and the Soviet Union, who were also facing this offer, decided to hold on to the nukes.”

The President went on to explain that, since then, a variety of alien groups have established secret programs to work around the resistance by world governments to abandoning nuclear weapons and the threat of multi-dimensional devastation they pose.

“Aliens have been around for a long time, and not all of them travel by spaceship,” President Obama explained, “They can manipulate time and space, which are both important and strongly-interconnected properties of reality, but not the only ones. One result of that manipulation is anti-gravity faster-than-light propulsion. Another result is a form of control over the kinds of trans-dimensional perception most commonly known as remote viewing, telepathy, astral travel, bi-location, or any of a large number of other names.”

Nodding to himself, the President paused to take a long look at the apprehensive faces filling the silent room.

Though Obama went on to laugh about this statement, he covered every detail that has been common knowledge to those that have researched the facts.  A joke !! I don’t think so, as the best method of maintaining a conspiracy theory is to admit jokingly the actual facts surrounding that conspiracy, thus convincing the masses it must be a joke other wise it would have been stated seriously. ( A common C.I.A psychological trick used  throughout the cold war)

ASTRONAUTS 

It must be noted here, that I still sit on the fence as to whether or not we actually landed on the moon. (refer my moon landing blog for more detail) having said this, IF we did and EBE’s did communicate with Armstrong and Aldrin  the following passages  make a lot of sense. 

The strange moon. 
One of the great astronaut legends concerning encounters with aliens is the issue concerning the sovereignty of the moon. Throughout the 60’s and early 70’s the direction of NASA was geared to putting a man on the moon followed by other Apollo manned missions to complete lunar exploration for the purpose of assessing the plausibility of establishing a lunar military complex.  
Why then, after BILLIONS of dollars spent achieving this goal, was the entire program  terminated. PERMANENTLY!  

Strange decision. 
Not even the Russians felt disposed to take up the baton. This is strange, and however you look at it, it represents a curious decision. To have achieved so many milestones, then just give up and concentrate on venus, leaves many to doubt the landing happened at all.  Founded rumors continue to circulate that when Armstrong and Collins where on the moon , it was made obviously clear by existing inhabitants, that violation of the moon surface by any other specie would not be tolerated. In other words, it was a “hands off our moon” ultimatum!  This may be a fantasy created for a joke, if so, how do you explain never EVER going back when it was NASA and The White Houses sole intention to colonize and utilize the moons surface for future MOD operations also possible space travel assistance. .   

It has now been 46 years since the supposed landing and the USA have NEVER been back. There are 3 theories,

  • NASA didn’t achieve Kennedy’s promise of 1963
  • NASA new the possible fatal consequences of their actions, if they did go back.
  • NASA along with the MOD have secretly established the military base as intended.

====================================================================

 The subject of an article in 1990 was perception of UFOs by cosmonauts and astronauts. It contained stories told by ten Soviet and American space explorers. Only one did not refute the possibility of UFOs coming to our galaxy. .Though the following sightings and experiences may not prove the existence of extraterrestrials, they certainly prove that very unusual and unexplained vehicles are moving around our planet on a regular basis.  K.P

Astronaut John Glenn 

 “February 20, 1962: John Glenn, piloting his Mercury capsule, saw three objects follow him and then overtake him at varying speeds.”He continues by stating that the objects become very numerous, moved very slowly, resembled fireflies, they appeared the size of stars and were particularly illuminated by the setting sun

Major Gordon Cooper

One of the original Mercury Astronauts and the last American to fly in space alone. On May 15, 1963 he shot into space in a Mercury capsule for a 22 orbit journey around the world. During the final orbit, Major Gordon Cooper told the tracking station at Muchea (near Perth Australia) that he could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of him quickly approaching his capsule. The UFO was real and solid, because it was picked up by Muchea’s tracking radar. Cooper’s sighting was reported by the National Broadcast Company, which was covering the flight step by step; but when Cooper landed, reporters were told that they would not be allowed to question him about the UFO sighting.

Major Cooper was a firm believer in UFOs. Ten years earlier, in 1951 he had sighted a UFO while piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over Western Germany. They were metallic, saucer-shaped discs at considerable altitude and could out-maneuver all American fighter planes. Major Cooper also testified before the United Nations: “I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets… Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs.” “I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe.”

And according to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said: “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means.”
“I was furthermore a witness to an extraordinary phenomenon, here on this planet Earth. It happened a few months ago in Florida. There I saw with my own eyes a defined area of ground being consumed by flames, with four indentions left by a flying object which had descended in the middle of a field. Beings had left the craft (there were other traces to prove this). They seemed to have studied topography, they had collected soil samples and, eventually, they returned to where they had come from, disappearing at enormous speed… I happen to know that authority did just about everything to keep this incident from the press and TV, in fear of a panicky reaction from the public.”

Donald Slayton

Donald Slayton, a Mercury astronaut, revealed in an interview he had seen UFOs in 1951: “I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high.” As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, grey and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing it didn’t look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk. About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away from me – and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It pulled about a 45 degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat disappeared.”

Robert White

On July 17, 1962 Major Robert White reported a UFO during his fifty-eight-mile high flight of an X-15. Major White reported: “I have no idea what it could be. It was grayish in color and about thrity to forty feet away.”
Then according to a Time Magazine article, Major White exclaimed over the radio: “There ARE things out there! There absolutely is!”

Joseph A. Walker

On May 11, 1962 NASA pilot Joseph Walker said that one of his tasks was to detect UFOs during his X-15 flights. He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record breaking fifty-mile-high flight in April, 1962. It was the second time he had filmed UFOs in flight. During a lecture at the Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space Research in Seattle, Washigton he said: “I don’t feel like speculating about them. All I know is what appeared on the film which was developed after the flight.” – Joseph Walker To date none of those films has been released to the public for viewing.

Eugene Cernan

Eugene Cernan was commander of Apollo 17. In a Los Angeles Times article in 1973 he said, about UFOs: “…I’ve been asked (about UFOs) and I’ve said publicly I thought they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization.”

Ed White & James McDivitt

In June 1965, astronauts Ed White (first American to walk in space) and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird-looking metallic object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have never been released.

James Lovell and Frank Borman

In December 1965, Gemini astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman also saw a UFO during their second orbit of their record-breaking 14 day flight. Borman reported that he saw an unidentified spacecraft some distance from their capsule. Gemini Control, at Cape Kennedy told him that he was seeing the final stage of their own Titan booster rocket. Borman confirmed that he could see the booster rocket all right, but that he could also see something completely different.

recording during James Lovell’s flight on Gemini 7:

Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH.

Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.
Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O’CLOCK HIGH.

Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?
Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL…ACTUAL SIGHTING.

Capcom: …Estimated distance or size?
Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT…

Neil Armstrong & Edwin Aldrin

  According to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon. According to un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a “light” in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard. According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA’s broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:

NASA: Whats there?
Mission Control calling Apollo 11…

Apollo11: These “Babies” are huge, Sir! Enormous!
OH MY GOD! You wouldn’t believe it!
I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there,
Lined up on the far side of the crater edge!
They’re on the Moon watching us!

====================================================================

Many years later, at one of the rare speaker appointments Armstrong accepted.  A professor, who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, engaged in a discussion with Armstrong regarding the whole Apollo 11 saga.  

Professor: What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?

Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known
there was a possibility, the fact is, we were
warned off! There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city.

Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their
ships were far superior to ours both in size and
technology – Boy, were they big! and menacing!
No, there is no question of a space station on the lunar surface.

Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?

Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and
couldn’t risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and back again.

===================================================================

According to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha: “Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the moon module. But this message was never heard by the public – because NASA censored it.”
According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside. Armstrong confirmed that the story was true but refused to go into further detail.

NASA knew about ‘alien’ activity on the Moon before Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins ever set foot on it. Edwin Aldrin at one point found evidence that we were NOT THE FIRST to arrive on the moon. After first seeing and then taking photographs of footprints in the lunar soil (Aldrin) then saw the beings that made the footprints (the report and transcripts of conversations between the astronauts were not clear if Aldrin had physical and/or mental contact with the entities).

‘Buzz’ Aldrin had a nervous breakdown because of these events and the pressure not to talk. There have been 22 deaths (many ‘suicides’) at JSC in Houston. It also an unspoken rule that no astronaut who has seen AVs or ETs is permitted  to discuss this issue, even among themselves.

In Return to Earth, Aldrin’s autobiography, tells of his struggle with depression and alcoholism following his long and dedicated USAF and NASA career.  Did NASA, CIA and the Pentagon compell Colonel Aldrin (and every other astronaut) to conceal what they saw on the moon? How much did this contribute to Aldrin’s mental problems?

Some time ago the Science Channel aired a program called “First on the Moon: The Untold Story.’ One segment described a UFO encounter that Apollo 11 astronauts witnessed during flight to the moon. Aldrin spoke of something he saw.

This is the first time that Buzz Aldrin, an Apollo 11 astronaut, had ever publicly recounted any UFO experience associated with the Apollo 11 moon mission,

Buzz Aldrin remarked, “There was something out there that, uh, was close enough to be observed and what could it be?…Mike (Collins) decided he thought he could see it in the telescope and he was able to do that and when it was in one position, that had a series of ellipses, but when you made it real sharp it was sort of L shaped.’

“NASA knew very little about, um, the object reported by the Apollo 11 crew. It was obviously an unidentified flying object,’ said Senior NASA scientist, Dr. David Baker. “But such objects were not uncommon and the history of even earth orbit space flights going back over the previous years indicated that SEVERAL CREWS SAW OBJECTS” (emphasis mine).

“Now, obviously, the three of us were not going to blurt out, ‘Hey Houston we got something moving along side of us and we don’t know what it is,’ observed Aldrin. “We weren’t about to do that, cause we know that those transmissions would be heard by all sorts of people and who knows what somebody would have demanded that we turn back because of Aliens or whatever the reason is, so we didn’t do that but we did decide we’d just cautiously ask Houston where, how far away was the S-IVB?’.  NASA reported the separated stage 6,000 miles behind. Obviously they didn’t detect any UFO.

Aldrin replied: “And a few moments we decided that after a while of watching it (UFO), it was time to go to sleep and not to talk about it anymore until we came back and went through debriefing.” NASA scientist, David Baker said, “There were a lot of people within the program who went off later and became convinced that UFOs existed and that led to some concern on NASA’s part. .”

Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave

Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist crew member aboard the STS-80 Mission—a disc-shaped object much larger than the orbiting American spacecraft suddenly appeared beneath the shuttle. At the time the Columbia was maintaining an altitude 190 nautical miles above Earth. Musgrave admitted that, although he got a good look at it, he wasn’t able to identify the object. “I don’t know what it is..I don’t know…It appeared to [have] come from nowhere. You would think that if it’s facing the dark side or facing a side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would think that you would see something there. It’s really impressive.

Apollo 14 Astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D.

Yes, there have been ET visitations. There have been crashed craft. There have been material and bodies recovered. There has been a certain amount of reverse engineering that has allowed some of these craft, or some components, to be duplicated. And there is some group of people that may or may not be associated with government at this point that have this knowledge. People in high level government have very little, if any, valid information about this. It has been the subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and create confusion so the truth doesn’t come out

Maurice Chatelain

In 1979 Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain believes that some UFOs may come from our own solar system, specifically Titan. “The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now.” “…all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin – flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence.” “I think that Walter Schirra aboard Mercury 8 was the first of the astronauts to use the code name ‘Santa Claus’ to indicate the presence of flying saucers next to space capsules. However, his announcements were barely noticed by the general public. It was a little different when James Lovell on board the Apollo 8 command module came out from behind the moon and said for everybody to hear: ‘PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.’ Even though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people sensed a hidden meaning in those words.” The rumors persist. NASA may well be a civilian agency, but many of its programs are funded by the defence budget and most of the astronauts are subject to military security regulations. Apart from the fact that the National Security Agency screens all films and probably radio communications as well. We have the statements by Otto Binder, Dr. Garry Henderson and Maurice Chatelain that the astronauts were under strict orders not to discuss their sightings. And Gordon Cooper has testified to a United Nations committee that one of the astronauts actually witnessed a UFO on the ground. If there is no secrecy, why has this sighting not been made public?

Scott Carpenter

“At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs.”

Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti

As you all know, sightings of UFOs at the space station is a weekly event. Sometimes so close its docked to the station and other times far in the distance.

Astronaut Leroy Chiao

In 2005, astronaut Leroy Chiao was commander of the International Space Station for six and a half months. During a spacewalk with cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov, the two were installing navigation antennas. They were 230 miles above Earth, traveling at over 17,000 miles per hour, when something unusual caught Chiao’s eye.

“I saw some lights that seemed to be in a line and it was almost like an upside-down check mark, and I saw them fly by and thought it was awfully strange,”

Christopher Cassidy 

Astronaut Christopher Cassidy  saw a UFO float past the International Space Station near its Progress 52  cargo ship.

Astronaut Scott Kelly

When an astronaut tweets a photo of a UFO, you can bet people notice it. Scott Kelly likes to send out photos of the view from the windows of the space station…and they look cool. This one however (Check Google)  has a cigar shaped glowing UFO with a metallic body in it. The UFO is about 25 meters long and 150-200 meters away. It looks like Scott was trying to hint at the existence of aliens.

Apollo 17 Commander Eugene Cernan 

I’ve been asked before about UFO’S and have stated publicly that I thought they (UFO’s) were somebody else’s some other civilisation.

                                                                     The Hubble enigma.

An instance of public space transmission being cut in the face of embarrassing circumstances occurred quite recently on a Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble space telescope. The incident which was broadcast on a special edition of Strange but True, contains audio exerpts of astronauts puzzled by strange flashing lights seen moving around the Space Shuttle on February 18th of this year. Shown to a background picture of Mission Control, the astronauts can be heard talking routinely to one another before one of them cries out: “What a flash! I saw a light flash…..there it is again”!

So unusual is the incident that one astronaut imagines he is seeing things, but his companion then confirms the sighting. Seconds later one of them observes: “There’s two of them…..there’s another one. What are they”? Apparently the flashing lights continue. One of the astronauts makes a joke about them: ” Who’d be taking pictures”? he wonders. The other responds: “It’s just gone past in front of us . Further lights! Gone up!”

At this point the picture shows a supervisor stride across to the Mission Control director and both pictures and sound terminate abruptly.

===========================================================================

                                                                   Russian sightings 

 In the very early days of space flight, one of the first Russian missions was lost without trace. Prior to contact being severed, An intercepted message was received: “It’s closing in on us ….. it is truly massive…if we don’t get back, the world will never know of this”. At this point transmission was abruptly severed and the pair were never heard from again!

An equally sinister shroud of mystery veils the strange events concerning the flight of the Soviet space ship Voskhod 1. In 1964 this was successfully launched on a five day mission which in the event lasted barely 24 hours. The exact circumstances behind this abrupt curtailment may never be known, but it is widely thought that a prime factor was a sudden encounter with a UFO!  and that the Soviet craft ‘was repeatedly overtaken by extremely fast flying discs.

                                                                          Voskhod 1.

Three Russian cosmonauts reported they were surrounded by a formation of swiftly moving disc-shaped objects.

 Voskhod2

A year later the crafts successor Voskhod 2 became embroiled in a similar incident.  The crew admitted sighting a peculiar shaped object close to their craft. Moments later all communication with ground control was severed and remained so for several hours.

===========================================================================

Soviet, and later, Russian cosmonauts have observed interesting , unusual, and often inexplicable phenomena while in space. Some of them have talked about their experiences, although doing so is not encouraged by their space program.

Colonel   Marina Popovich,

Marina Popovich openly admitted that today’s cosmonauts are routinely taught the proper protocol of dealing with aliens.

Cosmonaut Vladimir Lyakhov

Cosmonaut Vladimir Lyakhov once remarked about a very unusual phenomenon he observed from his spaceship looking down on Earth: two gigantic waves ascended from the waters of the Indian Ocean, and crashed onto each other. The mass of water resulting from the crash seemed to be a giant mountain that had vanished in an instant

Cosmonaut Vladimir Kovalyonok

Cosmonaut Vladimir Kovalyonok reported a very similar water pillar of over 100 kilometers in height in the Timor Sea near Australia

Cosmonaut Vladimir Kubasov

Cosmonaut Vladimir Kubasov told a reporter that he and others had numerous facts that prove the existence of UFOs.

Vladimir Kovalyonok

In 1978, Vladimir Kovalyonok observed a strange object on August 15 from the Salyut-6 space station: it approached and distanced itself repeatedly.

                                               Cosmonauts Valery Ryumin and Leonid Popov,

Cosmonauts Valery Ryumin and Leonid Popov, while aboard the same station in 1980 observed a school of white glowing dots that took-off in the area of Moscow, and flew into space above their station. They reported it to the ground control.

Cosmonauts Kovalyonok and Ivanchenkov

Kovalyonok and Ivanchenkov observed the shadow of Salyut-6 orbital station over the clouds. The shadow had very strange orange-reddish color. What’s more amazing, it changed its size. Earlier that year, on August 25, both cosmonauts observed iridescent clouds: green, purple, reddish, blue, and even violet.

V. Sevastyanov, P. Klimuk

V. Sevastyanov, P. Klimuk had reported silvery clouds. Their origin remains unexplained. Sevastyanov was mesmerized by their dull, occasionally pearly-white, cold, glitter. The structure of such clouds was either very thin (or bright) on the edges of the pitch-dark sky, or porous, resembling a swan’s wing.

Cosmonaut Georgy Grechko

Cosmonaut Georgy Grechko reported seeing a strange being of gigantic dimensions over Mongolia.

 Georgy Grechko and Yuri Romanenko

 Georgy Grechko and Yuri Romanenko  reported to the Tsentr (Soviet Space Mission Control Center) that while in their orbital station over the Falkland Islands they had actually observed huge letters. The photograph they took was delivered to Earth by visiting cosmonauts Dzhanibekov and Makarov.

Cosmonaut Vladislav Volkov,

Cosmonaut Vladislav Volkov, who perished in 1971, recalled the inexplicable noises he had heard in space, in his headset intercom: Sounds of dogs barking and babies crying. The Earth was below, and he was in orbit, yet he heard strange noises. To his death Volkov was not able to explain it.

Cosmonauts Gagarin and Leonov

Cosmonauts Gagarin and Leonov heard music that the former described as “not of this Earth.”

Cosmonaut Yury Malyshev

Cosmonaut Yury Malyshev said that when it comes to UFOs, no one in the world, can say what they are. It is impossible to refute similar phenomena, for there are thousands, or tens of thousands of people who have witnessed them not just cosmonauts.

Cosmonaut Vladimir Aksyonov

Cosmonaut Vladimir Aksyonov  said that cosmonauts often observe peculiar light phenomena as of yet inexplicable in nature.

Cosmonauts Georgy Beregovoy and Valentin Lebedev

Soviet cosmonauts Georgy Beregovoy and Valentin Lebedev were able to observe an unusual drop-shaped object on the monitor’s screen of the Salyut-7. It flew, ascending, between the orbital space station and Progressor-14 craft. The object, at the distance of 200 meters, could have been the size of a spaceship. The cosmonauts reported their sighting to theTsentr.

Cosmonaut Pyotr Klimuk

Cosmonaut Pyotr Klimuk in April of 1989,  confirmed he does not refute the existence of UFOs

Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev

“It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an engineering structure, made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away.”
In addition to photographing the UFO, Afanasyev continually reported back to Mission Control about the craft’s size, its shape and position. When the cosmonaut returned to earth he was debriefed and told never to reveal what he knew, and had his cameras and film confiscated.
It is only since the collapse of the Soviet Union that Afanasyev feels that he can safely tell his story.

Cosmonaut Yevgeny Khrunov

Yevgeny Khrunov during the course of an interview actually mentioned that it is not possible to deny their (UFOs) presence in our galaxy. Thousands of people have observed them. Maybe they are but optical illusions, but some of their characteristics, for instance the change of their flight course at 90 degrees, boggle imagination

Cosmonaut Gennady Strekalov

Cosmonaut Gennady Strekalov mentioned that he saw strange phenomena several times, . But his colleagues did see “flying saucers,” and he envies them. Strekalov did not provide details about their sightings. He described the phenomenon he observed in 1990, on September 28, during his sojourn on the space station MIR: a sphere over the Newfoundland at the altitude of 20-30 kilometers. The atmosphere was clear and visibility was perfect. The sphere was beautiful, and changed colors. It remained visible for ten seconds, and vanished instantly. Strekalov remembers that it had a perfect shape. He reported the incident to the Mission Control Center, but did not classify it as a UFO explaining that cosmonauts must be cautious. Cosmonaut Gennady Manakov was with Strekalov aboard the MIR space station station, and observed the same phenomenon.

Colonel Yury Nazarov, former deputy commander of the Soviet Space Mission Control Center,

recalls that on August 29, 1978, cosmonauts Kovalyonok and Ivanchenkov (mentioned earlier) , and the newly arrived cosmonaut Bykovsky and East German cosmonaut Sigmund Jähn had observed an unidentified large-sized spherical object that flew around Salyut-6. After the cosmonauts returned to Earth, Soviet UFO researcher Vladimir Ajaja approached Bykovsky, to get some explanations, but the cosmonaut only admitted that they did observe something inexplicable from aboard the Salyut.

COSMONAUT MAJOR GENERAL VLADIMIR KOVALYONOK:
Saljut VI Mission 1981

Many cosmonauts have seen phenomena which are far beyond the experiences of earthmen. For ten years I never spoke on such things. The encounter you asked me about happened on May 5, 1981, at about 6 PM, during the Saljut Mission. At that time we were over the area of South Africa, moving towards the area of the Indian ocean. I just made some gymnastic exercises, when I saw in front of me, through a porthole, an object which I could not explain. It is impossible to determine distances in Space. A small object can appear large and far away and the other way around. Sometimes a cloud of dust appears like a large object. Anyway, I saw this object and then something happened I could not explain, something impossible according to the laws of Physics. The object had this shape, elliptical, and flew with us. From a frontal view it looked like it would rotate in flight direction.

It only flew straight, but then a kind of explosion happened, very beautiful to watch, of golden light. This was the first part. Then, one or two seconds later, a second explosion followed somewhere else and two spheres appeared, golden and very beautiful.

After this explosion I just saw white smoke, then a cloud-like sphere. Before we entered the darkness, we flew through the terminator, the twilight-zone between day and night. We flew eastwards, and when we entered the darkness of the Earth shadow, I could not see them any longer. The two spheres never returned.

COSMONAUT MUSA MANAROV, MIR:    MIR mission 1991

It happened during a visit mission, when all our attention was focused on the slowly approaching space capsule. I was close to the great porthole, from where I could see our approaching visitors. I watched everything very carefully… When the capsule came closer, I filmed it with a professional Betacam camera. Suddenly I noted something below the spaceship, which first looked like a kind of antenna. Only when I looked closer and analyzed the situation, I realized that there was no antenna at all. But first I thought it was a part of the construction. But then this element started to move. It moved away from the ship. So I grabbed the radio and told them: “Hey, Boys, you are losing something.”

This, of course, alarmed them. With all my experience especially with docking maneuvers in space I can tell you that especially in this phase simply nothing can break off at all. If something would have been loose, it would have been torn off long before, during the launch, the maneuvers, the turn, all these much more energetic flight phases. Now we were just gliding slowly towards each other, without any pressure on the capsule.

But then this “something” started to remove downwards. When it flew away, it attracted all our attention. It looked like if it was rotating. It was difficult to estimate its dimensions. If it was close or far away I could not say, it was in free sight, and in space it is difficult to estimate any size and distance. I can only say for sure that it was not very close, since I set the camera for infinity. If it would have been just a screw or something close to us, it would have been out of focus. The object was quite far away. In any case at least 300 feet, since this was the distance of the space capsule, and I had the impression that it was beyond it.

It is possible that it was a kind of UFO. We can’t say with any certainty what it was. It was definitely not a bigger piece of space junk, no rocket part or so, since this would have been located… the space surveillance, ours and the American, locate all bigger objects in space. They are followed, for every minute we know their position and flight direction. If such an object would have come so close to the MIR, they would have located it and informed us.

I don’t think it was a piece of space junk or debris. There is a lot of that in the Earth orbit – Satellite parts, rocket parts, just everything- but our space surveillance locates them, and according to them there was nothing…

                                COSMONAUT GENNADIJ STREKHALOV, MIR
                                                        MIR mission 1990

On the last two flights I saw something. During the flight of 1990, I called Gennadij Manakov, our commander: “Come to the porthole”. Unfortunately, but this is typical, we did not manage to put a film in the camera quickly enough to film it. We looked on Newfoundland. The atmosphere was completely clear. And suddenly a kind of sphere appeared. I want to compare it with a Christmas tree decoration, beautiful, shiny, glittering. I saw it for ten seconds. The sphere appeared in the same way as it disappeared again. What it was, what size it had, I don’t know. There was nothing I could compare it with. I was like struck by lightning by this phenomenon. It was a perfect sphere, glittering like a Christmas tree decoration. I reported to the Mission Control Center, but I did not say that I have seen a UFO. I said I saw a kind of unusual phenomenon. I had to be careful with the choice of my words. I don’t want someone to speculate too much or quote me wrong.

        COSMONAUT GENERAL PAVEL ROMANOWICH POPOVICH

I had only one personal encounter with something Unknown, something we could not explain. It was in 1978, when we flew from Washington to Moscow. We flew in an altitude of 30.600 feet. And suddenly, when I looked through the windshield I noticed something flying about 4500 feet above us on a parallel course – a glowing white equilateral triangle, resembling a sail. Since our speed was 600 mph, the triangle must have had a speed of at least 900 mph, since it overtook us. I called the attention of all passengers and crew-members on it. We tried to find out what it was, but all attempts to identify it as something known ultimately failed. This object looked like a UFO and it remained unidentified. It did not look like an airplane, since it was a perfect triangle. No airplane at that time had such a shape.

Yes, there were particularly mysterious occurrences during military practice. At times targets appeared, on which fighters in the air or radars set for anti-aircraft missiles trained themselves, but it was difficult to determine what they were exactly. There were situations when a target answered to the signal “I’m your plane” (we have such a system of inquiry.) Or the other way around, it wouldn’t answer at all. It was considered incomprehensible. Moreover, I’m aware of situations when, as planes which had been sent into the air were opening their side sites, they discovered a target. But when it reached the determined distance when the automatic weapons system which dispatched missiles should have operated, suddenly the system broke down. Everything disappeared, even the target. Or maybe the plane warped through space to another position. They conducted another attack – again the same result. There were such interesting and mysterious occurrences.

 

AND THEY JUST KEEP COMING  

“Saucers exist (I saw two). TLt. Colonel Richard Headrick, radar bombing expert, 1959.   hey were intelligently flown or operated (evasive tactics, formation flight, hovering). They were mechanisms, not United States weapons, nor Russian. I presume they are  extraterrestrial.”
Lt. Colonel Richard Headrick, radar bombing expert, 1959.

“Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe that unknown flying objects are nonsense.”
Former CIA Director, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, public statement, 1960. 
“My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed ‘surveillance’.”
Dr James McDonald before Congress, 1968. 
“These UFOs are interplanetary devices systematically observing the Earth, either manned or under remote control, or both.”
“Information on UFOs, including sighting reports, has been and is still being officially withheld.”
Colonel Joseph J. Bryan III, founder member of the CIAs psychological warfare staff, advisor to NATO. 
“This was no ordinary UFO. Scores of people saw it. It was no illusion, no deception, no imagination.”
Air MarshallAzim Daudpota, Zimbabwe speaking about a UFO sighting over the country in 1985. 
“More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any ‘scientific’ explanation, eg that they are
hallucinations, the effects of light refraction, meteors, wheels falling from aeroplanes, and the like…. They have been tracked on radar screens… and the observed speeds have been as great as 9,000 mph. I am convinced that these objects do exist and they are not manufactured by any nation on earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from an extraterrestrial source.”
Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Commanding Officer of the RAF during WWII.
“I am convinced there was thought behind the thing’s manoeuvres.”
Lieutenant George Gorman, F51 pilot after being in a 30 minute dogfight with a small UFO in 1948.

General Kanshi Ishikawa, Chief of Air Staff, 1967.
“Air Force interceptors still pursue UFOs as a matter of national security to this country and to determine technical aspects involved.”
Major General Joe W. Kelly, 1957.
“Something is going on in the skies… that we do not understand. If all the airline pilots and Air Force pilots who have seen UFOs and sometimes chased them… have been the victims of hallucinations, then an awful lot of pilots should be taken off and forbidden to fly.”
Captain Kervendal, French Gendarmerie.
“The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs. For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee for investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent.”
Major Donald Keyhoe, during a live TV broadcast on CBS in 1958 in which he was pulled from the air when he began to deviate from the prepared format of the programme.
“It appears to be a metallic object…tremendous in size… directly ahead and slightly above… I am trying to close for a better look.”
Captain Thomas Mantell, USAF. These were his last words as he closed in on a UFO in 1948. Minutes later his plane was to crash and he was to lose his life.
“I was amazed at what I saw. The amount of debris that was scattered over such an area…The more I saw of the fragments, the more I realized it wasn’t anything I was acquainted with. In fact, as it turned out, nobody else was acquainted with it…There was a cover up some place about the whole matter.”
Major Jesse Marcel. US Army Intelligence Officer. Extract taken from a video interview. This testimony is a direct contradiction to the testimony of the Air Force regarding the nature of the recovered debris at Roswell in 1947.

“Headquarters wouldn’t let us go after it and we played around a little bit. We got to watching how it made 90 degree turns at this high speed and everything. We knew it wasn’t a missile of any type, so then we confirmed it with the radar control station, and they kept following it, and then it crashed somewhere off between Texas and the Mexico border.”

“A saucer flew right over (us), put down three landing gears, and landed out on the dry lakebed. (The cameramen) went out there with their cameras toward the UFO…. I had chance to hold (the film) up to the window. Good close-up shots. There was no doubt in my mind that it was made someplace other than on this earth.”

Program.
“The UFO was bouncing around the 747. (It) was a huge ball with lights
running around it… Well, I’ve been involved in a lot of cover-ups with the FAA. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. But they never had me swear it never happened. I can tell you what I’ve seen with my own eyes. I’ve got a videotape. I’ve got the voice tape. I’ve got the reports that were filed that will confirm what I’ve been telling you.”
John Callaghan, FAA Chief of Accidents and Investigations during a videotaped interview for the Disclosure program.
“I have frequently been asked why a person of my background—a former Chief of the Defence Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee—why I think there is a cover-up (of) the facts about UFOs. I believe governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behoves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.”
Admiral Lord Hill-Norton, British Royal Navy, former Chief of Defence during a videotaped interview for the Disclosure program.
The security guard called and said, “Sir, there’s a glowing red object
hovering right outside the front gate. I’ve got all the men out here with
their weapons drawn.” We lost between 16-18 ICBMs (nuclear tipped Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) at the same time UFOs were in the area… (A high ranking Air Force officer) said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report. I heard that many of the guards that reported the incident were sent off to Vietnam.”
Captain Robert Salas, USAF, during a videotaped interview for the Disclosure program.
“It was the darndest thing I’ve ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colours, and it was about the size of the moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing’s for sure: I’ll never make fun of people who say they’ve seen unidentified flying objects in the sky.”

“This is the first sighting in Zimbabwe where airborne pilots have tried to intercept a UFO. As far as my Air Staff is concerned, we believe implicitly that the unexplained UFOs are from civilizations beyond our planet.”
Air Commodore David Thorne, Director of General Operations for the Zimbabwe Air Force in 1985.
“The Air Force has arrived at the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced in Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations….reinforced by the reports of the night March 30-31 (1990) have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorised aerial activities have taken place.
The day will undoubtedly come when the phenomenon will be observed with the technological means of detection and collection that won’t leave a single doubt about its origin. This should lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time; a mystery that continues to be present. But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion.”
Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer, Chief of Operations for the Belgian Air Force in 1990 following a spate of sightings over the country witnessed by hundreds of people. Many of the sightings were confirmed on radar. 
“It is impossible for any man-made machine to make a sudden appearance in front of a jumbo jet that is flying 910 kilometers per hour and to remain in steady formation paralleling our aircraft. … Honestly, we were simply breathtaken.”

“Reliable reports indicate there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds and controlled by thinking intelligences.”

Navy Admiral Delmar Fahrney in a public statement during 1957.

“Congressional investigations…are still being held on the problem of unidentified flying objects and the problem is one in which there is quite a bit of interest… Since most of the material presented to the committee is classified, the hearings are never printed.”

THE SALYUT-7 INCIDENT

In 1984, the crew aboard the Soviet orbital station Salyut-7 consisted of six cosmonauts: Leonid Kizil, Oleg At’kov, Vladimir Solovyew, Svetlana Savitskaya, Igor Volk, and Vladimir Dzhanibekov.

On the 155th day of the station’s flight, the crew was busy with planned experiments, tests, and scientific observations. They were about to start medical experiments. All of them were experienced, skilled cosmonauts. Then, something that was out of their experience, knowledge, and understanding occurred. In front of the Salyut- 7 station, out of nowhere, a large, orange, gas cloud suddenly appeared, its origin unknown. The cosmonauts immediately informed the Tsentrupravleniya poletom (Soviet Space Mission Control Center). While the astonished Tsentr analyzed the report, Salyut-7 entered the cloud. The crew had a brief impression that the orange cloud entered their station.

They were all engulfed by the mysterious orange glow, blinded, out of contact with their comrades. But their sight, however, was restored quickly. The cosmonauts stumbled to the station’s portholes. What they saw left them speechless: seven gigantic shapes could be easily discerned inside the orange cloud. Their political ideals, their faith in Marxist-Leninist postulates were gone in a flash. None doubted their eyes. None questioned the shapes: seven heavenly angels. The angels looked like humans, and yet they were different. Yes, the angels possessed huge wings, and blinding halos. The main difference, however, lay in the angels’ smiles. When they gazed upon the Soviet crew, they smiled. The Soviet cosmonauts recalled what wonderful smiles the angels had. Smiles of joy, of rapture…no human could smile like that. Ten minutes passed quickly. As the clock ticked away the time, the angels disappeared, along with their cloud. The crew of Salyut-7 felt a devastating loss. But Earth was demanding explanation. When the Tsentr received the report, it was immediately classified as “top secret.” A special team of doctors was formed to study cosmonauts’ well-being. Hence, instead of carrying out further experiments in space, the crew was ordered to measure its own physical and mental health. The tests indicated that the cosmonauts were well and of sound mind.

In view of the dominant ideology, the incident, quite embarrassing to the Soviet regime, was hushed up for years. The popular Russian NLO magazine (Issue 9, 1998) carried one account of the incident. The incident took place before the perestroika period, and in order to create unnecessary furor, the Politburo made sure that the report remained secret. The crew of the Salyut-7 was warned to keep silent. No angels could exist inside or outside the Soviet Union.

COSMIC WHISPER

There are still episodes of the Soviet space exploration that are not widely discussed in Russia. Such are the accounts of the so-called “space whisper.” One former cosmonaut known only as, Cosmonaut X, revealed some information, but demanded that his name remain anonymous. He recalled that Soviet cosmonauts heard hushed up rumors about the “whisper,” but did not share definite information among themselves, nor did they report anything to the doctors. They were afraid that the latter would remove them from the space program. Cosmonaut X and his colleague believed the rumors to be a legend created by the first team of Soviet cosmonauts, to scare the greenhorns. He was wrong.

They were aboard a Soviet spacecraft, flying over the Southern hemisphere, when the “whisper” came to them. The narrator said that he suddenly felt as if someone else was next to them. He felt that some invisible being stared into his back; and it was a hard gaze. The cosmonaut had no doubt he was being observed. A second later his comrade, the flight engineer, who was looking into the porthole, sharply turned around and looked about him. Both were quite ordinary people, far removed from any mystical beliefs. But they were good friends, and knew each other long before the Star City training. They were not afraid to compare their impressions after the episode. They received different “texts,” but their initial reaction to the “whisper” was identical: both became mute and dumbfounded. The “whisper” came from the depths of Cosmonaut X’s consciousness and said: “You arrived here too early, and you did it in a wrong fashion. Trust me, for I am your ancestor on the maternal side. Do you remember, she told you; back when you were a child, about your great-grandfather, who had founded the D-s factory in the Urals? Sonny, you should not be here, go back to Earth, do not violate the Laws of the Creator…Sonny, you must return, return, return…”  

Both cosmonauts were back on Earth two days later.  The cosmonauts faced a dilemma: to report the incident or not. If they did, their careers could end immediately. They could be considered impressionable people, their psyche too unstable for further flights into space. Other cosmonauts kept somewhat silent about the “whisper,” at least nothing was reported to their superiors.

Churchill and Eisenhower ‘agreed to cover up RAF plane’s UFO encounter during WWII’, secret files reveal

Updated: 02:06 AEST, 6 August 2010

Churchill and US General Dwight Eisenhower, left, are alleged to have discussed how to deal with a UFO encounter

Sir Winston Churchill was accused of covering up a close encounter between an RAF aircraft and a UFO during the Second World War, newly-released files reveal today.

The former prime minister allegedly ordered that the unexplained incident over the east coast of England should be kept secret for at least 50 years because it would provoke ‘mass panic’.

The claim, made by a scientist who said his grandfather was one of Churchill’s bodyguards, is recounted in declassified Ministry of Defence UFO files made available online by the National Archives.

Allegations of the cover-up emerged when the man, from Leicester, wrote to the government in 1999 seeking to find out more about the incident.

He described how his grandfather, who served with the RAF in the war, was present when Churchill and US General Dwight Eisenhower discussed how to deal with the UFO encounter.

The man, who is not named in the files, said Churchill was reported to have exclaimed: ‘This event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic amongst the general population and destroy one’s belief in the church.’

The incident allegedly involved an RAF reconnaissance plane returning from a mission in France or Germany towards the end of the war.

It was over or near the English coastline when it was suddenly intercepted by a strange metallic object which matched the aircraft’s course and speed for a time before accelerating away and disappearing.

The scientist said: ‘This event was discussed by Mr Churchill and General Eisenhower, neither of whom knew what had been observed.

‘There was a general inability for either side to match a plausible account to these observations, and this caused a high degree of conc

He added: ‘During the discussion with Mr Churchill, a consultant (who worked in the Cumbria area during the war) dismissed any possibility that the object had been a missile, since a missile could not suddenly match its speed with a slower aircraft and then accelerate again.

‘He declared that the event was totally beyond any imagined capabilities of the time.

‘Another person at the meeting raised the possibility of an unidentified flying object, at which point Mr Churchill declared that the incident should be immediately classified for at least 50 years and its status reviewed by a future Prime Minister.’

The scientist said his grandfather did not talk about what he heard, other than to tell his daughter when she was aged nine.

He added: ‘(He) remained convinced until his death in 1973 that technological capabilities existed that were not generally known to the public or indeed even to world leaders.

‘He would occasionally hint that our flight technologies were far inferior to the possible limits of development without elaborating on the events that he witnessed during the war.’

Whitehall officials investigated the claims but could find no records of the discussions between Churchill and Eisenhower, the newly-released documents show.

An MoD official wrote back to the man in September 1999: ‘It was generally the case that before 1967 all UFO files were destroyed after five years as there was insufficient public interest in the subject to merit their permanent retention.

‘Therefore, any UFO report files from the WWII era would most probably have been destroyed.’

And a month later a civil servant in the Cabinet Office told him: ‘In your letter, you say that the discussion between Churchill and Eisenhower on the UFO sighting should have been recorded.

‘We have had a look through our lists of material for this period, and I am afraid that we cannot immediately see anything on this subject. Neither do we have any filed on this matter which remain closed.’

Churchill is known to have expressed an interest in UFOs……………………….

The newly released files also revealed that UFOs were once taken seriously enough to be discussed by intelligence chiefs in 1957,…………………..

 

The latest batch of UFO files from the National Archives includes details of a memorandum on ‘aerial phenomena’ prepared for a meeting of the Cabinet Office’s Joint Intelligence Committee in April 1957.

And the files show that modern reports of UFO sightings reached a peak in 1996.

According to an Air Ministry note included in the ‘Red Book’ – the weekly intelligence survey – four incidents involving UFOs tracked by RAF radars remained “unexplained”.

It said it received one UFO report a week on average, and that six out of the 16 sightings it had learnt about since January 1 1957 were either unexplained or still under investigation.
One of the six unexplained sightings was accounted for by lack of evidence and another was thought to be a weather balloon.

The note stated: ‘The remaining four incidents still under investigation are all radar sightings.

‘In each, unusual behaviour of the radar blips in terms of course, speed and heights were reported.

‘Attempts are being made to trace the cause of these sightings to aircraft known to have been near, inexperienced operators or spurious echoes of unexplained origin.’

The files contain dozens of UFO sightings reported to the Ministry of Defence between 1995 and 2003, including more than 600 reported sightings in 1996 alone.

Dr David Clarke, author of The UFO files and Senior Lecturer in Journalism from Sheffield Hallam University said: ‘These papers demonstrate how far official policy towards UFOs changed after the Cold War.

THE ‘WELSH ROSWELL’ INCIDENT

A famous UFO incident dubbed the ‘Welsh Roswell’ was dismissed by ministers as an earthquake happening as a meteor passed across the night sky.

Scores of witnesses claimed a spaceship had crashed in the Berwyn Mountains on January 23, 1974, after hearing a huge bang, feeling a massive tremor and seeing strange lights in the sky and men dressed in black scouring the area.

Comparisons were immediately drawn with Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, where it was claimed U.S. officials concealed that an alien craft had plunged to earth.

But the Ministry of Defence dismissed claims that a flying saucer had crashed and the bodies of extra-terrestrials covertly transported to a top-secret research facility.

‘In 1957, some officials were so concerned by a spate of incidents involving UFOs the subject was placed on the agenda of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC).

‘But by the 50th anniversary of the ‘flying saucer’ mystery in 1997 the MoD was no longer interested in UFOs as a defence problem but as a purely public relations issue.

‘This inevitably led to the closure of the MoD’s public UFO hotline at the end of 2009.’

Asked to intervene, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) agreed there was no evidence of visits by lifeforms from other planets and backed Ladbrokes.

BLAIR CHALLENGED OVER ALIENS

Tony Blair was challenged to reveal the truth about Britain’s knowledge of UFOs just weeks after he became Prime Minister.

A flying saucer enthusiast asked him to confirm that UK governments had ‘habitually covered up’ evidence of aliens.

He also claimed UFO-related programmes being shown on TV at the time, including The X Files and Star Trek, were part of a government ploy to prepare the public for the admission that extra-terrestrials existed.

The man, who has not been named, wrote to Downing Street on June 27, 1997 – less than two months after Mr Blair’s Labour Party won a historic general election on May 1.

The newly-declassified documents reveal that the enthusiast, from Faversham, Kent, was keen to hear the new leader’s ‘insights and personal views’ on UFOs.

He wrote: ‘Can you confirm that previous British, U.S., Soviet and Asian governments have habitually covered up the truth about UFO/alien incidents and encounters?

‘Can you also confirm that the current media exposure of UFO/alien phenomena featured in TV programmes such The X Files, Star Trek, Babylon 5 and infotainment like Strange But True: Encounters… and films such as Independence Day, Mars Attacks and Men In Black are a strategy by western Governments to prepare the populace for the admission that there has indeed been contact from aliens, extra-terrestrials, trans-dimensionals and/or time travellers?’

Number 10 passed the letter to the MoD who told the man there was ‘no evidence’ that aliens existed.

The man, from Beeston, Leeds, who is not named in the files, placed a successful £2 bet on West Germany winning the 1990 World Cup at 6/1.

His winnings were added to a £3 wager on ‘aliens to have landed (dead or alive) on Earth before December 31 1999’ at 100/1, meaning he stood to win £1,700 if extraterrestrials were found.

But Ladbrokes refused to pay out, writing to him in April 1999: ‘We advise that at present your bet is not a winner as the United Nations, who we use as our source of authenticity, has not yet confirmed the existence of aliens.

‘However, as the bet stipulates ‘before December 31 1999′, should the United Nations confirm this before that date we will be only too pleased to make payment to you.’

The punter made a complaint ‘as a last resort’ to the minister for sport, which was passed to the MoD.

He said he had found 19 books in Leeds Central Library reporting the famous Roswell incident, in which an alien spaceship was reported to have crashed in New Mexico in the US in July 1947.

He wrote: ‘I placed my bet on facts, Ladbrokes hide behind government propaganda weighted heavily to prevent public alarm and panic.

‘Which I agree with it (sic). I do not want the media reporting my wager, but I should be paid out. My bet is a winner.’

An MoD official replied on July 23 1999: ‘The MoD does not have any expertise in respect of UFO matters or to the question of the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms, about which it remains totally open-minded.

‘However, to date the MoD is not aware of any evidence that might substantiate the existence of alien lifeforms and therefore supports the view that your bet should not be upheld.’

He approached the government for evidence to support his claim after Ladbrokes refused to pay out. While the MoD said they were open-minded about extra-terrestrial life they had no evidence of its existence.

Another file relates to the infamous Rendlesham Forest Incident in Suffolk in December 1980.

A black, triangular spacecraft which hummed as it flew is depicted in sketches by one alarmed Lancashire resident

Often described as ‘Britain’s Roswell’, the incident began with a sighting by US Air Force (USAF) security police of bright lights descending in Rendlesham Forest, outside the perimeter fence of RAF Woodbridge.

Three patrolmen claimed they saw a UFO in the forest and investigations found marks on the ground and on trees and allegedly higher than expected levels of radiation.

Two nights later Lt Col Charles Halt, the deputy base commander, and other USAF personnel reported seeing more unexplained lights over the forest.

The MoD file on the incident was first released in 2001 but some papers were withheld.

Reports of mysterious sonic booms and an aircraft crashing into the Peak District hills, on the border between South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, triggered a search of moorland by the police, RAF and mountain rescue teams in 1997.

No wreckage was found and no aircraft reported missing. An RAF police investigation concluded space debris or meteorites may have been responsible.

Further highlights from the files include also a ‘psychic premonition’ of a terrorist attack on an RAF base in Stanmore in 1990.

A mountain rescue team called to investigate a ‘crashed UFO’ in the Berwyn Mountains in Wales in 1974. The incidents was later attributed to a minor earthquake in the region.

Dr David Clarke continued: ‘These files reveal that before the collapse of the USSR in 1991 RAF aircraft were scrambled on average 200 times a year to investigate unidentified objects on radar, the majority of these turned out to be Soviet reconnaissance aircraft.

‘However, between 1991 and 1996, no scrambles were recorded. In contrast during the same five year period the MoD received almost 1200 reports of sightings from members of the public, most of which were filed away

‘In 1996 alone there were more than 600 reports, 343 letters from the public and 22 enquiries from MPs, perhaps related to the popularity of TV shows such as The X-Files at the time.”

There are 18 files in total, released today as part of a three-year project between The National Archives and the Ministry of Defence.

The files are made up of more than 5,000 pages of UFO reports, letters and drawings drawn from correspondence with the public and questions raised in parliament.

COMMERCIAL AND AIRFORCE PILOT REPORTS also GENERAL MILITARY REPORTS 

Tens of thousands of civilian reports are dismissed every year as being not worthy of research due to the individuals inexperience with aerial activities and natural phenomena, they are also ignored by MoD researchers due to the large percentage of previous investigated reports being made up of elaborate hoaxes or general publicity seekers.

There have been literally thousands of reports made by  what the authorities would classify as a credible witnesses,  Air force and Commercial pilots, Navy personnel, Scientist, Police Officers, Military personnel, government officials…

Dr. Richard Haines is a Senior Research Scientist at the NASA-Ames Research Centre. He is best known for his work with pilots and their UFO sightings. Over the last 30 years he has been investigating the subject, he has amassed over 3000 pilot  ufo sighting reports.

October 4, 1963–East Hartland, Conn. State Representative L. B. Martin, about 1:00 p.m., saw a silvery triangular object with a row of black dots across the leading edge. The UFO passed overhead, emitting a flame-like tail, at an estimated speed of 2000 mph. [Report obtained by NICAP-CONN Affiliate.]

October 23, 1963–Meridian, Idaho. Shiny disc hovered, emitting “loud pulsating sound,” maneuvered across sky and disappeared . Unidentified, (Air Force Project Blue Book 1963 Summary.)

October 31, 1963–Daylston, Victoria, Australia. A delivery man on his rounds at 4:15 a.m., was frightened by a UFO which approached his van, turned and followed his course just ahead. The object seemed to be 8-12 feet long, glowing orange and red. It then darted to the side of the road, continuing to pace the van for a while, finally zooming ahead over a hill and apparently descending. It was not seen again. Other witnesses reported seeing a maneuvering light at the time of the sighting.

November 3, 1963–Corona, N. Y. A Pan American Airways mechanic, about 1:30 a.m., noticed a star-like object maneuvering across the northern sky. The light moved rapidly, slowed and seemed to “shudder,” then changed course by about 45 degrees. Finally it made a 90-degree turn, accelerated, turned again and disappeared from view. [Report obtained by New York NICAP Subcommittee.

November 12, 1963–Port Huron, Michigan. Deputy Sheriffs chased a low-flying UFO which first appeared as a white flashing light. At times the object seemed to have a “big divided window” on it. When the UFO hovered, the deputies approached and flashed their squad car light. Then a flashing red light became visible on the UFO. The object finally moved away to the northwest making a motor-like sound. Other residents reported a flashing light and “high-pitched” or “whining” noises at the same time.

November 14, 1963–Carson City Nevada. A huge bluish- green disc was seen hovering in the northwest sky about 4:45 a.m. Mrs. Blanche Pritchett said she was listening to her radio when a bright light shining through her drapes caused her to look outdoors. As she watched the hovering object, her radio went off. A brilliant shaft of light from the UFO illuminated a hill top. Suddenly the UFO blacked out and disappeared, after which the radio resumed playing. Other residents reported odd glows in the sky that morning. [VIII]

November 20, 1963– -Neche, N.D. Two high school girls reported that a bright orange, oval-shaped object circled their car at night while they were en route home. They were on highway 55 east of town when they first saw the UFO. It appeared to be surrounded by a light haze. The glowing object sped across in front of the car and circled around the side before disappearing to the southeast.

December 2, 1963–Grand Rapids, Michigan. A motorist stopped at a traffic light about 9:30 a.m., noticed a strange object “glittering in the sun.” Then the object tipped on edge (revealing a disc shape) and quickly sped away to the southeast. The shape was “like a pancake.”

December 5, 1963–Nr. Carrasco, Uruguay. An oval UFO, metallic-looking like aluminum, was observed hovering in the clear morning sky by hundreds at a resort. One description said the object “balanced gently in the air.”

   MEXICAN AIR FORCE FILM 11 UFO’s      

Date: March, 2004  Location: Over Campeche state, Mexico

Mexican Air Force pilots filmed 11 unidentified flying objects in the skies over southern Campeche state in Mexico, a Mexican Defense Department spokesman confirmed. The lights were filmed using infrared equipment. They appeared to be flying at an altitude of about 3,500 meters (11,480 feet), and allegedly surrounded the Air Force jet. Only three of the objects showed up on the plane’s radar.

A videotape made widely available to the news media on Tuesday shows the bright objects, some sharp points of light and others like large headlights, moving rapidly in what appears to be a late-evening sky.

 

Radar operator “Was I afraid? Yes. A little afraid because we were facing something that had never happened before,” said radar operator Lt. German Marin in a taped interview made public Tuesday as well.

“I couldn’t say what it was … but I think they’re completely real,” added Lt. Mario Adrian Vazquez, the infrared equipment operator. Vazquez insisted that there was no way to alter the recorded images.

The plane’s captain, Maj. Magdaleno Castanon, said the military jets chased the lights “and I believe they could feel we were pursuing them.”
When the jets stopped following the objects, they disappeared, he said.

A Defense Department spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the videotape was filmed by members of the Mexican Air Force. The spokesman declined to comment further and spoke on customary condition of anonymity

Disk-Shaped Object Photographed by Military Pilot in Hungary.

Date: September 29, 2001 Location: Budapest, Hungary

“A military pilot recorded a spectacular video of a silver disk object on September 29, 2001. The craft was flying to his left side and then moved very fast past him in the clouds as can be seen in the video.

“I was on a flight over Budapest, Hungary,” said the pilot, who has requested that his name be withheld until the official inquiry by the Hungarian Ministry of Defence is complete.

“To my left I saw a bright metal aircraft that was the shape of a perfect disk. I was careful to film the object, not to try and chase it since it I could not match its speed. As I was flying a reconnaisance aircraft, I got the idea to film it and used our equipment.”

Officials at the Ministry of Defence would not answer questions about the video when asked and warned that officially they have no comment. Despite the denial, when informed of the pilot’s name, they did acknowledge that the he was a real air force pilot and that it was true that he flew photo reconnaisance airplanes.

The pilot considers the video he made to be his property and not the Hungarian governments as he was flying the plane while not on duty and was transporting it as a favor to save the government money. He has now hired an attorney and wants the video to be released to the public. He hopes the release of a few frames will make this happen.

The air force had a prolonged up-close encounter with a UFO last month that one fighter pilot described as “just like ones in foreign movies,” a government-controlled newspaper reported Thursday. At least 140 people on the ground also saw the object. They described an object with a mushroom-shaped dome on top and a flat bottom covered with bright, continually rotating lights.

UFO Roundup, November, 1998
Chinese Jet Fighter Pursues a UFO

On Monday, October 19, 1998, four military radar stations in Hebei province, China, reported the presence of an unidentified blip hovering above a military flight training school in Changzhou. Once authorities determined that the intruder was not a military or civilian flight, Colonel Li, the base commander, ordered a Jianjiao 6 jet fighter to take off and intercept the UFO. At least 140 people on the ground saw the object. To observers at the base, the UFO first appeared to be “a small star” and then grew larger and larger, perhaps as it descended to a lower altitude, the report said. They described an object with a mushroom-shaped dome on top and a flat bottom covered with bright, continually-rotating lights.

The crew of the Jianjiao 6 interceptor consisted of a pilot and a radar officer. The two officers said “the object clearly resembled depictions they had seen in foreign science fiction films. When they got within 4,000 meters (13,200 feet) of the UFO over Qing county, it abruptly shot upward, easily evading subsequent attempts to get closer. It appeared to be toying with the fighter by repeatedly outdistancing it and then reappearing right above it, the report said. The pilot requested permission to fire on the UFO with the plane’s automatic 20mm cannon. He was denied permission to shoot by ground control and was told to continue to pursue and observe the object. The pilot broke off pursuit at an altitude of 12,000 meters (39,600 feet) when the jet began running low on fuel. The UFO then disappeared before two more modern (Chinese fighter) planes could arrive in the area.

Changzhou is 150 kilometers (90 miles) northwest of Shanghai. (See the Hong Kong Standard for November 4, 1998. The story apparently first ran in the Hebei Daily around October 22 and was picked up by the Chinese weekly newsmagazine Baokhan Wenzhai.

Chinese Air Force Pilot Chases UFO   (Nov. 5, 1998):

SHANGHAI — (Agence France Presse) The air force had a prolonged up-close encounter with a UFO last month that one fighter pilot described as “just like ones in foreign movies,” a government-controlled newspaper reported Thursday.

A Hebei Daily report — carried in the news digest Baokan Wenzhai — gave a detailed pilot’s account of an aerial cat-and-mouse game played between the object and a jet fighter ordered to intercept it.

At least 140 people on the ground also saw the object, it said.

An editor with the Hebei Daily said the events took place on Oct. 19 and were still being investigated by local government departments.

The newspaper’s report and military sources quoted show an openness that contrast sharply with Washington’s notorious secrecy on the topic of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

It said the encounter began when four different radar stations in northern Hebei province picked up an unknown moving target in airspace directly above a military flight training base near Changzhou city.

To observers at the base, the UFO first appeared like “a small star,” and then grew larger and larger, perhaps as it descended to a lower altitude, the report said.

They described an object with a mushroom-shaped dome on top and a flat bottom covered with bright, continually rotating lights.

A base commander surnamed Li reported to his superiors, who ordered a Jianjiao-6 armed interceptor airborne to pursue the object once checks showed no other civilian or military aircraft in the area.

The two pilots aboard said the object closely resembled depictions they had seen in foreign science fiction films.

When they got within 4,000 meters (13,200 feet) of the UFO over Qing county, it abruptly shot upward, easily evading subsequent attempts to get closer.

It appeared to be toying with the fighter by repeatedly outdistancing it and then reappearing just above it, the pilots said.

The report said a request for permission to fire on the UFO with an onboard cannon was denied by ground command at one point.

The interceptor was eventually forced to return to base after it ran out of fuel at an altitude of 12,000 meters (39,600 feet). The UFO then disappeared before two newer-model planes could get airborne, the article said.

 Large ‘V’-Shaped UFO encounter with US Navy nuclear submarine; electromagnetic effects
Date: October 24, 1989
Location: Florida, United States

From the witness: “My ship was on patrol about 150 miles of the Florida coast. We were cruising at about 500 feet when the submarine started experiencing electronics problems…. I saw a large inverted V-shaped UFO off the port side….This huge vessel was over a half mile across. The UFO made a half circle around our ship then passed across the stern…”

A sailor reports about the UFO sighting he had while in the Navy. “I was assigned to USS Memphis (SSN-698), homeport Titusville, FL. (Cape Canaveral.) Our mission was Special Assignments which meant we protected the Space Program. We would go to sea and patrol while the shuttle was on the pad. Nine years ago, on October 24 and 25, my ship was on patrol about 150 miles of the Florida coast. We were cruising at about 500 feet when the submarine started experiencing electronics problems. The ship was malfunctioning, our tanks were blowing out of control, we were losing navigation ability and the communications area was totally lost. We went to all stop and tried to access what was happening. The controls in the reactor area started to malfunction. This presented a serious danger to our safety, so the captain ordered us to shut down the reactor, surface and go to diesel motors. When the ship surfaced I went to my watch station. The ship was still experiencing electronic difficulties but the mechanical devices such as diesel engines, cook stoves, and turbines were fine. It was raining and the entire sky was red like a red neon sign. I saw a large inverted V-shaped UFO off the port side. The executive officer told me to stand fast and he would speak to the captain. In a minute, the captain appeared on the tower and asked me for a distance to the craft. The laser range finder determined the closest point was 200 meters and the farthest point was 1,000 meters off the port. The UFO was not perpendicular to our ship but at about a 45′ angle. This huge vessel was over a half mile across. The UFO made a half circle around our ship then passed across the stern causing our electronics systems to go crazy. We had permanent damage in communications and the sonar room. As the craft flew over the stern, I could see the rain stop under its red glow. The water seemed to rise almost a foot as the UFO passed over silently. When the UFO finished its swing across the stern it paused – the sky got brighter red and it simply moved off at tremendous speed inside 15 seconds. When the UFO left our boat returned to normal with the exception of the radio and sonar. We did a quick system check and the captain ordered us to return to reactor power and get underway.

The captain took two petty officers, the executive officer, and myself into the wardroom. He told us to not spread any rumors until we had a chance to talk to Commander Submarine Fleet – Atlantic. We reached port in about 7 hours where I was taken into “protective custody.” Two enlisted men and myself agreed we had witnessed a real UFO. I was the one who shot it with a laser range finder so I was the only one that had its exact sizes. I shot that vessel as it hovered and I got solid readings not spotty like I would on debris. We were in holding for about three hours when an officer from the Air Force arrived and gave us a line of bull about an exploding weather satellite. The Navy then transferred virtually everyone on the crew to new assignments. This included the her captain, the executive officer and the entire crew. They were split up which almost never happens unless one of them gets a promotion or a new command, neither of which happened. The military just split up a 4 year team. I was watching a program tonight that gave me the courage to share it.

 Belgium Triangle UFO Sightings

Date: October, 1989 Location: Belgium

From October 1989 throughout 1990, hundreds of reports of lighted objects, frequently described as enormous and triangular in shape were recorded in Belgium. Air Force supersonic F-16 jets chased these strange objects, which were simultaneously tracked by both airborne and ground radars. The Belgian Government cooperated fully with civilian UFO investigators, an action without precedent in the history of government involvement in this field.

From October 1989 throughout 1990, hundreds of reports of lighted objects, frequently described as enormous and triangular in shape were recorded in Belgium. Air Force supersonic F-16 jets chased these strange objects, which were simultaneously tracked by both airborne and ground radars. The Belgian Government cooperated fully with civilian UFO investigators, an action without precedent in the history of government involvement in this field.

The first important case was a multiple-witness observation of a strange aircraft, reported by gendarmes on patrol near the town of Eupen, not far from the German border. Auguste Meessen, professor of physics at the Catholic University in Louvain and a scientific consultant of SOBEPS, summarized the case:

“On November 29, 1989, a large craft with triangular shape flew over the town of Eupen. The gendarmes von Montigny and Nicol found it near the road linking Aix-la-Chapelle and Eupen. It was stationary in the air, above a field which it illuminated with three powerful beams. The beams emanated from large circular surfaces near the triangle’s corners. In the center of the dark and flat understructure there was some kind of ‘red gyrating beacon.’ The object did not make any noise. When it began to move, the gendarmes headed towards a small road in the area over which they expected the object to fly. Instead, it made a half-turn and continued slowly in the direction of Eupen, following the road at low altitude. It was seen by different witnesses as it flew above houses and near City Hall.”134

Sightings continued to be logged by SOBEPS and the Gendarmerie during the fall and winter of 1989-1990. Most witnesses described seeing dark, triangular objects with white lights at the corners and a red flashing light in the middle. Many of the objects were said to have hovered, with some of them then suddenly accelerating to a very high speed. Most of the objects made no sound, but some were said to have emitted a faint humming like an electric motor.

Public interest in the wave reached its peak with a radar/visual and jet scramble incident on the night of March 30-31, 1990. This scramble was seen and reported by hundreds of citizens. A preliminary report prepared by Major P. Lambrechts of the Belgian Air Force General Staff was released to SOBEPS. The “Report concerning the observation of UFOs during the night of March 30 to 31, 1990,” includes a detailed chronology of events and dismisses several hypotheses such as optical illusions, balloons, meteorological inversions, military aircraft, holographic projections, etc.

The incident began at 22:50 hrs. on March 30 when the Gendarmerie telephoned the radar “master controller at Glons” to report “three unusual lights forming an equilateral triangle.” More gendarmes confirmed the lights in the following minutes. When the NATO facility at Semmerzake detected an unknown target at 23:49 hrs., a decision to scramble two F-16 fighters was made. The jets took off at 0:05 hrs. from Beauvechain, the nearest air base, on March 31 and flew for just over an hour. According to Major Lambrecht’s report:

“The aircraft had brief radar contacts on several occasions, [but the pilots]… at no time established visual contact with the UFOs… each time the pilots were able to secure a lock on one of the targets for a few seconds, there resulted a drastic change in the behavior of the detected targets… [During the first lock-on at 0:13 hrs.] their speed changed in a minimum of time from 150 to 970 knots [170 to 1,100 mph and 275 to 1,800 km./hr.] and from 9,000 to 5,000 feet [2,700 m. to 1,500 m.], returning then to 11,000 feet [3,300 m.] in order to change again to close to ground level.”135

The Electronic War Center (EWC) of the Air Force undertook a much more detailed technical analysis of the F-16 computerized radar tapes, led by Col. Salmon and physicist M. Gilmard. Their study was completed in 1992 and was later reviewed by Professor Meessen.

Although many aspects of this case still remain unexplained, Meessen and SOBEPS have basically accepted the Gilmard-Salmon hypothesis that some of the radar contacts were really “angels” caused by a rare meteorological phenomenon. This became evident in four lock-ons, “where the object descended to the ground with calculations showing negative [emphasis added] altitude… It was evidently impossible that an object could penetrate the ground, but it was possible that the ground could act as a mirror.” Meessen explained how the high velocities measured by the Doppler radar of the F-16 fighters might result from interference effects. He points out, however, that there is another radar trace for which there is no explanation to date. As for the visual sightings of this event by the gendarmes and others, Meessen suggests that they could possibly have been caused by stars seen under conditions of “exceptional atmospheric refraction.”

In a recent interview, Major General De Brouwer summarized his reflections on this complex case:

“What impressed me the most were the witnesses, some of whom I know personally and convinced me that, in fact, something was going on. These were credible people and they told clearly what they saw.

“We always look for possibilities which can cause errors in the radar systems. We can not exclude that there was electromagnetic interference, but of course we can not exclude the possibility that there were objects in the air. On at least one occasion there was a correlation between the radar contacts of one ground radar and one F-16 fighter. This weakens the theory that all radar contacts were caused by electromagnetic interference. If we add all the possibilities, the question is still open, so there is no final answer.”137

The Belgian UFO wave yielded a rich volume of good quality cases and many videos and photographs. One strikingly clear photograph of a triangular-shaped craft was taken at Petit-Rechain in early April 1990. As of 1994, it remained unexplained after numerous analyses, including a thorough computerized study at the Royal Military Academy. (see below)

Although public interest in the Belgian wave reached its peak in the 1990-91 period, SOBEPS was still documenting cases in late 1993. Marc Valckenaer listed the main characteristics of the Belgian UFOs in the latest SOBEPS study. Various shapes such as round, rectangular and cigar were reported, but the wave was dominated by triangular objects. Some of their characteristics included:

“Irregular displacement (zig-zag, instantaneous change of trajectory, etc.).

“Displacement following the contours of the terrain.

“Varying speeds of displacement (including very slow motion).

“Stationary flight (hovering).

“Overflight of urban and industrial centers.

“Sound effects (faint humming… to total silence).”138

Because the bulk of the Belgian sightings described triangular-shaped objects, many European and American researchers and journalists speculated that these were caused by either F-117A stealth fighters or some other revolutionary U.S. secret military aircraft. However, the only truly unusual characteristic of the F-117 is its near-invisibility to radar and infrared detection – it looks, flies and sounds like any other sub-sonic jet airplane. Similar claims about the presence of other American advanced airplanes are even harder to substantiate: the A-12 Avenger II was never built, and the existence of the TR-3A “manta” is unconfirmed. Neither has even been rumored to be able to fly in the manner reported for the Belgian UFOs.

Despite the fact that the secret military aircraft hypothesis has been denied officially over and over again by the Belgian Ministry of Defense and Air Force, as well as by the U.S. Embassy in Brussels and the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, some publications continue to champion the stealth fighter theory.

In a letter to French researcher Renaud Marhic, the Minister of Defense at the time of the UFO wave, Leo Delcroix, wrote:  “Unfortunately, no explanation has been found to date. The nature and origin of the phenomenon remain unknown. One theory can, however, be definitely dismissed since the Belgian Armed Forces have been positively assured by American authorities that there has never been any sort of American aerial test flight.”

 UFO hovers over Russian military base near nuclear test site of Kapustin Yar

 

In 1989, at a military base near the nuclear test site of Kapustin Yar, It was about midnight when members of two army units noticed a UFO which hovered for hours over the arsenal of the base. The KGB files contained the handwritten reports of the sighting, which 4 of the witnesses wrote after being interrogated by agents of the KGB. The report does not say what kind of missiles were in the arsenal, nor whether there had been any nuclear warheads.

“I climbed up to the watchtower and watched the object at a height of 18 feet. I could clearly make out a glaring blinking signal, bright as a camera flash. The object flew over the stores of the unit and moved in the direction of the missile arsenal, about 1,000 feet away. It floated at a height of only 60 feet above the depot. The UFO glowed in a kind of phosphorescent green. It was a disc 12 to 15 feet in diameter with a semi-spherical dome on it.

While the object was hovering above the arsenal, a bright ray appeared on its underside where the light had been flashing before, and drew 2 or 3 circles. Then the object moved towards the railway station, still flashing. Soon, however, it came back to the missile depot and hovered at a height of 180-200 feet above it. Two hours after the start of the sighting, the object flew in the direction of the town Akhtubinsk and disappeared out of our sight,”   wrote the communications officer on duty, V. Voloshin.

And the soldier G. Kulik added: “Near the object in the sky I saw a fireball which arose from the earth and approached it. When the UFO moved towards me, I could physically feel its approach. Then it shot off into the sky. I saw an airplane that attempted to get close to the object, but the object accelerated so fast that it soon left the airplane behind”.

 Jet Chase Over Brazil  (FULL REPORT)
Date: May 19, 1986 Location: Brazil

As many as twenty UFOs were seen and tracked by ground radar and at least six airplanes. Unidentified radar returns were tracked by airports in São Paulo and the Integrated Air Defense & Air Traffic Control Center (CINDACTA) in Brasilia. Two F-5E and three Mirage jet fighters were scrambled from Santa Cruz AFB in Sao Paulo State, and Anápolis AFB in Goias State.  Source: Don Berliner, UFO Briefing Document

As many as twenty UFOs were seen and tracked by ground radar and at least six airplanes during the night of May 19, 1986 over several states in southeastern Brazil. Unidentified radar returns were tracked by airports in São Paulo and the Integrated Air Defense & Air Traffic Control Center (CINDACTA) in Brasilia. Two F-5E and three Mirage jet fighters were scrambled from Santa Cruz AFB in Sao Paulo State, and Anápolis AFB in Goias State.

The case was discussed openly by high ranking government officials. It was first reported by Colonel (Ret.) Ozires Silva, president of the state-owned oil company Petrobrás, who was flying on an executive Xingu jet, when he and the pilot saw and pursued unidentified objects for about 25 minutes. The incident was covered widely in the Brazilian media, leading to a press conference at the Ministry of Aeronautics in Brasilia on May 23, with air traffic controllers and air force pilots involved in the scramble mission.

The Minister of Aeronautics, Brigadier General Otávio Moreira Lima, was very outspoken:

“Between 20:00 hrs. (5/19) and 01:00 hrs. (5/20) at least 20 objects were detected by Brazilian radars. They saturated the radars and interrupted traffic in the area. Each time that radar detected unidentified objects, fighters took off for intercept. Radar detects only solid metallic bodies and heavy (mass) clouds. There were no clouds nor conventional aircraft in the region. The sky was clear. Radar doesn’t have optical illusions.

“We can only give technical explanations and we don’t have them. It would be very difficult for us to talk about the hypothesis of an electronic war. It’s very remote and it’s not the case here in Brazil. It’s fantastic. The signals on the radar were quite clear.”112

The Minister also announced that a commission would study the incident. Air Force Major Ney Cerqueira, in charge of the Air Defense Operations Center (CODA), was equally candid:

“We don’t have technical operational conditions to explain it. The appearance and disappearance of these objects on the radar screens are unexplained. They are Unidentified Aerial Movements… The technical instruments used for the identification of the lights had problems in registering them. CODA activated two F-5E and three Mirages to identify the objects. One F-5E and one Mirage remained grounded on alert. A similar case occurred four years ago [the Commander Brito VASP airliner radar-visual incident in 1982]. The lights were moving at a speed ranging between 250 and 1,500 km./hr. [150 to 1,000 mph] The Air Force has not closed the case.”113

Aeronautics Commission report was not released. However, the accounts of air force pilots and radar controllers were published widely in the press and later studied by Brazilian researchers. A comprehensive report was made by Basílio Baranoff, an airline captain, member of the Aerospace Technical Center, and consultant for the Brazilian UFO organization CBPDV. Baranoff provided a chronology of events for the night of May 19, 1986:

“6:30 p.m. local time – First visual sightings by control tower personnel at the São José dos Campos airport in São Paulo State. Controllers notice two intense lights aligned with the runway axis at 330 degrees azimuth and approximately 15 km. [10 m.] distance from the tower.

“7:00 p.m. – The control towers in São Paulo and Brazilia confirm to São José that they have three primary targets on their screens, and that there are no scheduled aircraft in those areas.

“8:00 p.m. – CINDACTA (Brasilia) detects up to eight targets (echoes) on its screens.

“8:30 p.m. – A new object is observed with binoculars at the São José tower; it shows defined edges and red-orange color; it approaches the tower and then retreats.

“9:00 p.m. – The oil company Xingu executive jet with Col. Silva requests landing conditions at São José. Both Silva and Commander Alcir Pereira, the Xingu pilot, confirm visually the luminous objects at 330 degrees azimuth. The Xingu jet attempts to follow the UFOs for 10 minutes.

“9:10 p.m. – The Xingu jet returns for landing when a new, large luminous object heads toward the aircraft. The São Paulo tower confirms two echoes: the Xingu and an unknown, which disappears from the screen 15 minutes later.

“9:20 p.m. – The Air Control Center in Brasilia (ACC-BR) informs the Air Defense Command about the situation.

“9:25 p.m. – The Xingu returns for a second landing attempt when the São Paulo tower reports yet another object at 180 degrees south, which is observed and followed by Commander Pereira.

“9:30 p.m. – The Xingu returns for a third landing attempt when ACC-BR reports the appearance of new objects. The Xingu, now at 3,000 meters [10,000 ft.] of altitude, makes visual contact with three luminous objects flying low over Petrobrás refineries and heading towards Serra do Mar. The Xingu finally lands in São José dos Campos.

“9:40 p.m. – More visual sightings of a round object at 320 degrees azimuth.

“9:50 p.m. – A luminous yellow object surrounded by smaller lights is observed at 110 degrees azimuth.

“10:23 p.m. – The first F-5E jet fighter, piloted by Air Force Lt. Kleber Caldas Marinho, is scrambled from Santa Cruz AFB in Rio State.

“10:45 p.m. – The second F-5E jet, piloted by Captain Brisola Jordão, is scrambled from Santa Cruz. The first Mirage F-103, armed with Sidewinder and Matra missiles, is scrambled from Anápolis AFB in Goias State.

“10:55 p.m. – Anápolis AFB detects the objects on radar. The Mirage piloted by Captain Viriato does not make visual contact with the UFO, but a target is detected on its onboard radar… Captain Viriato later explained at the press conference in Brasilia that he was chasing the UFO ‘at 1,350 km./hr. [850 mph], approaching the object up to a distance of 6 miles [9.5 km.]. The object was heading up front and moving from one side to the other (zig-zagging) on my radar scope. Suddenly, the blip disappeared from my radar scope.’

“11:00 p.m – The second Mirage F-103 is scrambled from Anápolis.

“11:15 p.m. – Lt. Kleber’s F-5E makes visual contact with a ball of light and chases the UFO at Mach 1.1 (1,320 km./hr. or 850 mph)… Kleber later declared at the press conference: ‘I had one visual contact and one contact with my aircraft radar of something that looked like a luminous point, which was 12 miles [19 km.] in front of me, a distance confirmed by ground radar. The object was moving from left to right and then began to climb… [it] was at 10 km [6 mi.] of altitude and flying over 1,000 km./hr. [600 mph]. I followed it up to 200 miles [320 km.] over the Atlantic Ocean [limit of Brazil’s territorial waters]. I wasn’t afraid because I like the unknown.’

“11:17 p.m. – The third Mirage jet is scrambled from Anápolis AFB.

“11:20 p.m. – Captain Jordão’s F-5E establishes radar contact… At the press conference a few days later, he stated: ‘Near to São José dos Campos, radar detected several targets, 10 to 13 targets, at a distance of 20 miles [32 km.]. The sky was clear but I didn’t see anything. Ground radar informed me that the objects were closing in: 20 miles, 15, 10, 5, suddenly there were 13 objects behind my aircraft, 6 on one side and 7 on the other, during several minutes. After I maneuvered the aircraft, the objects had disappeared.’ [Captain Jordão flew for 1 hour 20 minutes.]

“11:36 p.m. – The third Mirage is scrambled from Anápolis AFB.

“1:00 a.m. (May 20) – By this time all jet fighters have returned to their bases.”114

These are the basic known facts surrounding the multiple UFO jet scramble incidents over southeastern Brazil on the night of May 19-20, 1986. It is noteworthy that Captain Baranoff added that “two nights after, ten to eleven unidentified luminous objects returned for a new round over São José dos Campos; they were observed visually and detected by the São Paulo, ACC-BR and by CINDACTA 1 radars.” This time there was no official confirmation from Air Force authorities.115

Lacking the final Ministry Commission report with all the pertinent data, it is difficult to make a final conclusion about this case. Many hypotheses were offered in the Brazilian media by skeptical astronomers and scientists, ranging from a meteor shower, a reflection of the full moon and ball lightning, to radar malfunction, space debris and spy planes. Most of these explanations seem quite insufficient to explain the events of May 19. One of the more plausible was offered by British space researcher Geoffrey Perry. According to Perry, the Soviet space station Salyut-7 ejected several boxes of debris on that night, which re-entered the earth’s atmosphere around central-western Brazil. The re-entry of NASA’s Solarwind satellite was also discussed in the Brazilian press.116

However, Brigadier José Cavalcanti from Brazil’s Air Defense Command, was not impressed with the Salyut-7 and Solarwind explanations. He told the weekly magazine Veja:

“It could have been space debris, but it wasn’t only that. A metallic box with space debris can be detected by radar, but it will always fall in the same direction and at constant velocity. That was not the case of what was seen in Brazil, where the objects detected by radar had speeds that varied from very slow to extremely high.”117

Another interesting view is the final comment in a short message from the USDAO (U.S. Defense Attaché Office) in Rio to DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) on the subject, entitled “BAF [Brazilian Air Force] has a Close Encounter of the First Kind”:

“COMMENT:  While the RO [Reporting Officer] does not believe in UFO’s or all the hoopla that surrounds previous reporting, there is too much here to be ignored. Three visual sightings and positive radar contact from three different types of radar systems, leads one to believe that something arrived over Brazil the night of 19 May.”

US Navy ship; radiation detected after UFO experience.

Date: 1986 Location: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, United States

During one of my scans of the night sky, out of know where, four red circular lights appeared… The four lights, in a flash, darted towards the horizon amazingly fast… Then all four shot straight up into outer-space and out of sight, all within a split second… After a half hour had passed since the sighting, the radiation detection system on the bridge started making a loud clicking sound.”

Seaman Report — While in the US Navy in the summer of 1986, I was standing lookout aboard the USS Edenton ATS 1 (currently decommissioned). The lookout watch, stood outside on top the bridge of the ship, and was responsible for reporting all contacts seen both in the water and sky. It was around eleven p.m. one clear night at sea, located about fifty miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC.

During one of my scans of the night sky, out of know where, four red circular lights appeared. The lights where hundreds of yards apart from each other and formed a square. At first, I thought it was four separate air craft, such as, military helicopters because the lights were stationary; however, due to the distance from the ship, the lights where too large to be aircraft running lights.

There were also no other normal running lights like green and white, which make-up the normal outline of an aircraft seen at night. The lights where located about twenty degrees above the horizon and about a mile away from the ship. Again, these four red lights were each about the size of a small plane, which were very bright and visible in the night sky. The night sky was also clear, moon lit, and a moderate amount of stars were visible, which also aided in calculating the distance and size of these lights.

As stated, when I first saw these lights they were all stationary in the sky and appeared out of know where. Once I noticed that these were not normal lights, grouped in a square and not moving, I called down to the bridge over a salt and pepper line informing the conning officer of a possible UFO sighting. This brought laughter across the wire at first, but I relayed the contact again in a stern but excited voice, which succeeded in getting the bridge officers attention. After relaying the contact information a second time, the four lights, in a flash, darted towards the horizon amazingly fast. The lower two lights in the square went first, with the top two lights following directly behind them in a curved swooshing motion and there was no sound.

Then all four shot straight up into outer-space and out of sight, all within a split second. At this point, I felt very excited and shocked, and was personally praying someone on the bridge had seen what I just saw. Having been an avid watcher of the night sky, seen shooting stars and a believer in that life has to exist somewhere out there, I become even more excited because I knew, I just saw my first unidentified flying object(s).

To my amazement, when I returned to the bridge after my watch, I was very pleased to learn that the conning officer and everyone else on the bridge had seen this sighting and logged it into the ship’s log as a UFO sighting.

Next, after a half hour had passed since the sighting, the radiation detection system (gamma roentgen meter) on the bridge started making a loud clicking sound. At first, no one seemed to know what was making this sound then a very loud bell went off notifying us as to what was going on, we were being radiated.

When the instrument stopped clicking, it indicated we had taken a hit of 385 roentgens in the period of about one minute. At this point, the captain of the ship was awoken and called to the bridge, as well as the chief in charge of the radiation metering equipment onboard ship.

The captain was not impressed with an entry of a UFO sighting being placed in the ship’s log, and at first, took the roentgen meter as being defective. However, the chief informed the captain that the meter had been serviced and calibrated the day before and that other like meters throughout the ship had just gone off indicating the same amount of roentgens received as the bridge.

The captain stated not to log the instance concerning the radiation exposure and left the bridge. During the rest of my watch duty that night, no officer or enlisted person spoke of what happened, and also acted liked nothing happened. This experience, however, was etched into my memory as if it happened yesterday and I have told this story to only a few people, people who I thought would believe me. This is also the first time I have documented the events of this night.

In conclusion, as an indication of the strength of gamma radiation, I and others received that night; all the personnel during the Project Trinity experiments conducted in 1945 at ground zero, only received between 1 and 6 total roentgens of gamma radiation. This leads me to believe, we traveled through the wake of radiation produced by the UFOs seen thirty minutes earlier.

  The Rendlesham Forest Incident (FULL REPORT)
Date: December 26, 1980 Location: Rendlesham Forest, United Kingdom

What is widely considered Britain’s most extraordinary encounter took place between 26 and 28 December l980. It involved at least a dozen civilians from villages surrounding Rendlesham Forest, a large pine wood in south east Suffolk eight miles from the large town of Ipswich. However, it also gained a high profile because of its military witnesses, part of a huge USAF contingent at the twin bases of RAF Bentwaters and Woodbridge located beside the forest. These had been on long-term lease from the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) since World War Two.

Although the twin bases closed with the cessation of the cold war, other local facilities survive in this high security area. At RAF Bawdsey the world’s first working radar was developed. And Orford Ness, a coastal spit five miles from the Woodbridge base, was for many years a secret research facility. “Over The Horizon” beam experiments (code named Cobra Mist) led to warnings that shipping coming too close to the shore might experience “interference”.

The area surrounding the forest has long been a hotbed of UFO activity, with fishermen reporting strange blisters on their skins and the sightings of green fireballs emerging from the North Sea around the Ness.

Then, at approximately 3:00 a.m. on 26 December l980, a two-man USAF security patrol near the East Gate of RAF Woodbridge observed strange coloured lights above the forest in the direction of Orford Ness. Assistance was requested and a security unit was sent out from Bentwaters. The lights were now deep inside the pine wood and three men, Sargeant Jim Penniston, his driver, Airman Ed Cabansag, and one of the two original security officers, airman (later sargeant) John Burroughs, drove down a logging track that led into the forest, proceeding the rest of the way on foot owing to the frozen terrain.

All three men closed in on an object that resembled an “aircraft on fire”, or, as Burroughs described it, a “multiple series of lights”. At closer proximity, the lights solidified. Burroughs says that no structured craft ever emerged, but Penniston claimed that he went close enough to see an actual object looming from within the glow that was “the size of a tank…It had a very smooth surface almost like glass”. Cabansag, whilst more guarded, agrees that strange lights were visible.

At close proximity Penniston says “The air was filled with electricity – like static.You could feel it on your skin as you approached the object. There was also a sense of slowness, like time itself was an effort.”

Burroughs concurred: “The nearer we got to that thing the more uneasy I felt…it was as if I was moving in slow motion. I felt really hot and as if the hair was standing up on the back of my head”.

There was then a silent explosion of light, causing the airmen to throw themselves to the ground in a defence. The object disappeared towards the coast and “was gone like a blur”. However, the three men began to follow a light that had appeared in the distance. Only after pursuing this for some minutes through the forest did they discover that they were chasing the glow from the lighthouse situated on Orford Ness. They do not believe this was what they had witnessed earlier at close quarters.

After discovering “marks” on the forest floor the airmen returned to base to be debriefed. British civilian police sent two officers to the forest and senior policeman, David King, met with Colonel Ted Conrad on the logging road at 4:11 a.m. From here they reported seeing only the Orford Ness lighthouse; although the UFO had long since disappeared.

At 10:30 a.m. police were called to the woods again to study the holes now confirmed as located in the ground at the landing site and forming a roughly triangular pattern. In the log report at the Woodbridge police station these were noted as possibly having been caused by animals.

The Suffolk police established that there were several UFO reports during the previous night, including sightings on radar screens at Heathrow Airport near London. It is likely that much of this activity referred to an incident just after 9:00 p.m. on 25 December, when the booster from a Soviet space probe had burned up on re-entry over South East England and fell into the North Sea. This trail of debris brought a flood of sightings into BUFORA (the British UFO Research Association) as well as to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), because some witnesses thought that this was an aircraft exploding in mid-air.

Local UFOlogists, Brenda Butler and Dot Street, later found many witnesses in surrounding villages to the lights that Burroughs had reported over the forest. The Webb family, returning from a Boxing Night party on the road through the forest, observed floating lights and had time to slow their car to a stop, eliminating one theory since proposed for this UFO: a short duration meteor that astronomers had witnessed in the sky around this time.

The sighting by the USAF patrol quickly became the talk of the base, and next day (27 December) strange lights were reported again by airmen who were having an unofficial “sky watch” in the forest. Concerned about morale base security chief, Lieutenant Bruce Englund, interrupted an officers Christmas party on Woodbridge base to report the new sightings.

Base commander, Colonel Ted Conrad, who had an awards speech to give at the party, ordered his deputy, Lt Colonel Charles Halt to gather a team and sort out the matter once and for all. Halt duly collected a tape machine to take notes in the dark woods , and took a small group of men, including Englund, an officer from the disaster preparedness team and a base photographer, to prepare for a nocturnal investigation. Gas-powered “lightall” searchlights were taken with them, but these constantly malfunctioned near to the “suspected landing site”.

Halt and his team were in the forest from soon after midnight early on 28 December through to just before dawn. During this time they took samples of soil and damaged tree bark, photographed the landing marks, measured a hole in the tree canopy at the point where Burroughs, Penniston and Cabansag had seen the UFO depart 48 hours earlier and used geiger counters to take readings that they considered to be unusual radiation levels within the impact marks.

Halt intermittently recorded the team’s progress onto the tape, until at 1:48 a.m. some airmen in the party reported strange activity. This tape runs for 18 minutes and was released to British UFO investigators in July l984 by a US Major, who had held a copy for four years. On this dramatic audio account of the early hours of 28 December you can hear the following exchange:

Halt: Zero one forty eight, we’re hearing very strange sounds out of a farmer’s barnyard animals…very, very active, making an awful lot of noise.

Airman: There…look.…

Halt: You just saw a light? Where? Slow down…where?

The witnesses debate this pulsing light, and at one point (after viewing it through an optical enhancer known as a starlight scope) it seems to break apart; possibly an effect of an optical distortion. They then set off to follow the glow, much as the three airmen did at this same position two nights earlier, when misperceiving the Orford Ness lighthouse.

Halt: We are about 150 to 200 yards from the site. Everything else is just deathly calm. There’s no doubt about it, there’s some type of strange flashing red light ahead.

Airman: Sir, it’s yellow.

Halt: I saw a yellow tinge in it, too…Weird! … it appears to be moving a little bit this way…It’s brighter than it has been. It’s definitely coming this way…Pieces of it are shooting off…There’s no doubt about it this is weird.

Further sightings continued, mostly of small star-like lights, moving in box-grid patterns and scattered about the sky. It seems hard to deny that some of these could be stars caused to move by the effects of autokinesis (an optical illusion), the clear night sky and the effects of wind. But at one point another very strange event does occur as Halt and his men report pencil-thin beams of light coming from the sky.

Halt (In clearly stunned tones): Now we observe what appears to be a beam coming down towards the ground…this is unreal.

Halt has since explained that this was like a laser and it struck the ground only feet from the men but also beamed into the weapons storage area back on base, where, unbeknownst to British citizens, nuclear weapons were then located.

With his men now tired, Halt ordered them to return to base. As the sky lightened he saw one more “UFO” still hovering over the woods, but this faded as the sun came up; behaviour that almost certainly proves this one to be a star; although it is much harder to account for the laser beam.

Again, there were civilian witnesses to events on this second night. These included local villagers familiar with Orford Ness and far less likely to be fooled by a lighthouse than would foreign airmen unused to these woods at night. Sarah Richardson, for example, observing from her bedroom in Woodbridge, saw: “three bands of star like light and they were bright, coloured red, blue and yellow.”

After taking statements from the witnesses and plaster casts of the landing marks, there was confusion on base as to what to do next. It was technically a British matter, but the Suffolk constabulary had shown no interest in the story. However, the MoD needed to be informed.

On 13 January l981 Colonel Halt officially reported the matter to London at the request of Squadron Leader Donald Moreland, who acted as liaison between the landlord MoD and their USAF tennants. Although Moreland personally saw nothing, he had every confidence in the men who did and sent a note fully endorsing Halt’s memo to the MoD.

Neither Halt nor Moreland received any further contact from the British government. This memo was just a one-page summary of the events. It made no reference to the fact that soil samples, plaster casts, photographs and other evidence from the landing site had been taken, nor that a “live” audio tape existed of the second night’s sightings. Halt says that he would have made this data available had the MoD chosen to follow up the case, but they never bothered to do so.

Unfortunately, the chronology on the memo is also misleading. It was apparently put together from memory three weeks after the events.

This memo was eventually secured, using the Freedom of Information Act, by US group CAUS in June l983; this being two months after the MoD had finally written to myself and officially accepted that an unsolved incident had occurred. In this startling letter they confirm “unidentified lights” had been seen and that “no explanation was forthcoming”—an unprecedented admission by British standards.

We now know that the inaccuracy in these dates misled the British government. Whilst files regarding Rendlesham Forest were sealed from public release until 2014, in an unexpected move, following requests by folklore researcher, Dr David Clarke, the MoD agreed to release the entire case file in summer 2001.

This 150-page file paints a picture of an MoD department baffled by the events and unable to explain them, but not taking any urgent action. Although they were aware of reports of allegedly high radiation readings they merely sent letters to various government departments asking for advice and then waited weeks to get responses despite continued puzzlement from experts. Yet whilst the case was still secret, villagers in eastern Suffolk were walking dogs and picnicking freely around a forest that might have been irradiated!

It is likely that the recorded radiation levels were not dangerous, but the complacency whereby that fact was assumed certainly was potentially disasterous.

The MoD file reveals no evidence that the British government believed this case to be solved, but still regarded it as having no defence significance. The lack of any unidentified radar targets that correlated with the UFO sightings was one key reason. However, the communications between the MoD and “Eastern Radar” (RAF Watton) included with the file offer two caveats. The RAF radar was not apparently working fully at the time. More seriously, the radar coverage on the night of 26/27 December was the data being pursued when we know that the first sighting had really occurred 24 hours earlier.

Opinion within UFOlogy is seriously divided as to what really happened inside Rendlesham Forest on those two winters nights. Some researchers feel it is one of the strongest examples of a military encounter with a possibly alien craft, and the sincerity of the many independent witnesses is not in dispute.

However, it seems likely that a number of factors combined to explain parts of this case—particularly on the second night (28 December) when stars and the lighthouse do seem to have been mistaken during phases of this lengthy encounter. The lighthouse is an unexpected sight, so far inland, particularly to those not familiar with these woods at night or the effects of the undulating landscape.

Other considerations include the presence of sea mist, during the first sighting particularly, and the possibility of mirage effects; plus, of course, the covert research known to have occurred for decades in the vicinity of Orford Ness.

The radiation levels seem not to have induced any lasting ill effects and experts studying the records suggest that they were not abnormally high for within a pine forest, especially one close to a nuclear power station.

On the other hand, there are aspects to this case very difficult to explain, particularly the alleged physiological effects and distortions in time and space reported by Burroughs and Penniston in close proximity to the 26 December UFO. And, of course, the “laser beams” witnessed by Halt 48 hours later.

This case is certain to remain the source of many arguments for years to come and has already generated more books discussing the evidence than any other single case apart from Roswell.

Kirtland Air Force Base 1980 UFO Landing

Date: August 9, 1980 Location: Kirtland AFB, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States

On the morning of August 9, 1980, several security guards at the Manzano Weapons Storage Area, adjacent to Kirtland AFB, saw a bright light descend in (a) restricted area. A fourth guard observed a disk shaped light in the vicinity of a bunker used to store nuclear weapons. The incident resulted in a report being filed with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) at Kirtland. The incident was subsequently investigated by agent Richard Doty — an interesting and mysterious figure who often appears in the UFO literature. Doty filed a preliminary report on the incident, which has been acknowledged and released by the Air Force. Researcher Bruce Maccabee’s question is, where is the follow-up report? Surely, no such incident at an atomic facility, even if explainable by mundane causes, would not have been further investigated. Maccabee reveals strong circumstantial evidence that such a report exists but is being withheld by the Air Force.

The in-depth report of this case by Dr. Bruce Maccabee has far-reaching implications if true, especially in light of what has been reported before at and near, Kirtland AFB, a military base which is one of the most sensitive military installations in the world.

 US Air Force personnel witness 3 large oval shaped craft in Mojave desert

Date of sighting: August, 1978 Location of sighting: Phelan, California, United States

Summary: US Air Force personnel witness 3 large oval shaped craft hovering and moving at incredible speed in the California Mojave desert in 1978.

Date Reported: 12/15/2005

Sighting Time: 5:30 AM
Day/Night: Dawn
No. of Witnesses: 3
Duration: About 6 to 7 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Oval shaped with no distinctive features. The crafts emitted an extremely bright orange/yellow light evenly from their entire surface.

Size of Object(s)
About 1/2 inch between fingers at arms length. Given the distance between me and the craft I estimate that they must each have been at least the size of a very large blimp.

Description of Area / Surroundings
Very rural, high-desert area of the Mojave desert. Both George AFB (my destination and place of work) and Edwards AFB are in this area.

Full Description and Details
Driving from home in Wrightwood, CA to work at George AFB in a 2-door sedan with 2 co-workers eastbound on Hwy 18 between Sheep Creek Rd and Hwy 395 near Phelan, CA. Myself and other witnesses were F4-Phantom Weapons Control Technicians in the USAF. My eastbound view was of mountains on horizon with first glow of sunrise behind mountains.
Weather calm and completely clear. 1st large oval rises up from directly behind mountains due east from me. Motion is slow, floating like a blimp or balloon. At first I thought it was a large blimp with a mirror-like exterior reflecting the sunlight (sun was below the eastern horizon during the entire encounter), object was extremely bright, yet had a distinct oval outline. After rising a few degrees above mountains object stopped all motion. Total time to rise up was about 2 minutes. Second identical object then began to rise just to the left of the first object.

Second object moved identically to first, then stopped next to first at equal altitude. Third identical looking object then began to rise just to right of first object, at same slow rate, until it was at equal altitude with other 2 objects. All three objects remained still for about 2 more minutes. Very curious sight at this time, but all witnesses still thought objects were blimps. Right-most object then begins to rise slowly above others, stops completely, then moves from a complete stop to a point slightly above the horizon almost directly due south of us (visible out the right side of the car) in about 2 or 3 seconds then comes to a complete stop again. No acceleration or deceleration was apparent. Middle object then does exactly the same, stopping next to the other above the southern horizon. Third object then repeats the same exact moves.

When all 3 were stopped hovering next to each other then all 3 objects slowly descended towards the ground until disappearing on the southern horizon. Objects retained their extreme brightness throughout the entire encounter, even when in a position near the southern horizon where there was no sunlight to reflect in my direction. All witnesses agreed with each other not to speak of the sighting due both to fear of ridicule, and due to the fact that all of us were under orders to speak of any potential UFO sightings ONLY to our commanding officer (to my knowledge all AF personnel, including myself and the witnesses, at the time were required to sign a statement acknowledging the order upon enlisting in the AF).

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No, not whatsoever.

Witness Background
Service in the USAF as an electronic technician. College graduate, BSCS, Summa Cum Laude, (GPA of 3.875) Senior level design engineer (electronics/software), 25 years experience. Co-patent holder (co-inventor) of an industry award winning Laser Scanning Microscope.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before the sighting I was a complete non-believer, a very scientifically-minded skeptic. I was exposed to some material about UFOs prior to this, but no more than the average person at that time – it was not a subject of interest to me prior to my sighting. Obviously, now I know they exist – which in itself implicates many in positions of authority who continue to deny this fact. I feel like someone who knows a rare truth that most are not aware of, and that I’m fighting a constant battle with those who try to keep the truth from us. I know that I’m right, and they are wrong, but how do I prove it? What do I do with this knowledge I have? It hurts me deeply as a devoted and patriotic American to know that the government that I am supposed to trust is lying and deceiving the public. It causes me to lose nearly all trust in my government, and it’s not my fault – it’s theirs. I feel as if I have been cursed with this first-hand knowledge, because there has never been any “closure” for me. At this point I have come to the conclusion that we must have more to fear from our own government than we do from the UFOs – and it is our own government’s actions compared to those reported concerning UFOs that have led me to this conclusion. What I am supposed to teach my children concerning them trusting their government – about the rightness of truth and the evil of lies? I am very sad and angry.

 Fort Dix-McGuire AFB Case.

Date of sighting: January 18, 1978   Location of sighting: Fort Dix/McGuire AFB, New Jersey, United States

The primary eyewitness in the case, Jeffrey Morse, alleged (i) that he had been working as a security policeman at McGuire AFB at 03.00 on January 18, 1978 when he was notified about UFO activity over Fort Dix army base that adjoined McGuire AFB. (ii) Morse alleged that he heard that a non-human entity had been shot and he later saw the dead body of the entity lying on the ground on a disused runway at McGuire AFB. (iii) The scene was rapidly cordoned off and the body was crated and flown to Wright-Patterson AFB (WPAFB) for examination. (iv)Morse himself, two days after the shooting incident, was allegedly summoned to WPAFB and interrogated about the event. He was warned to keep quiet and shortly thereafter was transferred to Okinawa, Japan.

Letter from sergeant Morse summarizing his experience and the incident:

In January of 1978, I was stationed at McGuire AFB, NJ. One evening, during the time frame of 0300hrs and 0500hrs., there were a number of UFO sightings in the area over the air field and Ft. Dix Army camp. I am a security policeman and was on routine patrol at the time. N.J. State Police, and Ft. Dix MPs were running code in the direction of Brownsville, NJ. A state trooper then entered gate #5 at the rear of the base requesting assistance and permission to enter. I was dispatched and the trooper wanted access to the runway area which led to the very back of the air field and connected with a heavily wooded area which is part of the Dix training area. He informed me that a Ft. Dix MP was pursueing (sic) a low flying object which then hovered over his car. He described it as oval shaped, with no details, and glowing with a blueish (sic) green color. His radio transmission was cut off. At that time in front of his police car, appeared a thing, about 4ft tall, grayish (sic), brown, fat head, long arms, and slender body. The MP panicked and fired five rounds from his .45 Cal into the thing, and one round into the object above. The object then fled straight up and joined with eleven others high in the sky. This we all saw but didn?t know the details at the time. Anyway, the thing ran into the woods towards our fenceline and they wanted to look for it. By this time several patrols were involved.

We found the body of the thing near the runway. It had apparently climbed the fence and died while running. It was all of a sudden hush-hush and no one was allowed near the area. We roped off the area and AF OSI came out and took over. That was the last I saw of it. There was a bad stench coming from it too. Like ammonia smelling but it wasn?t constent (sic) in the air. That day, a team from Wright-Patterson AFB came in a C141 and went to the area. They crated it in a wooden box, sprayed something over it, and then put it into a bigger metal container. They loaded it in the plane and took off. That was it, nothing more was said, no report made and we were all told not to have anything to say about it or we would be court martial-ed.

Morse, in subsequent conversations, revealed that two days after the incident he and others on duty at the scene were summoned to Wright Patterson AFB for interrogation, and each was transferred promptly to a separate base overseas.

The Fort Dix/McGuire case was also of interest because a prominent UFO investigator, George Filer, claimed to have been present at McGuire AFB on the morning of January 18, 1978. Mr. Filer told NIDS that he witnessed a commotion with red lights on one of the disused runways at McGuire when he arrived on the base at 4:00 AM. He further claimed that he heard from a Senior Master Sergeant at McGuire command post on the same morning that (i) UFO activity had been sighted by the control tower and on radar at neighboring Fort Dix and (ii) an alien had been shot that morning and that it had been found dead on the runway at McGuire.

 Retired Chilean General in air encounter with large ‘banana-shaped’ UFO

Date of sighting:  1978 Location of sighting: Antofagasta, Chile

 

RETIRED CHILEAN GENERAL DISCUSSES HIS ENCOUNTER WITH A GIANT UFO
SANTIAGO DE CHILE.- In an interview with Terra.cl., retired general Hernan Gabrielli Rojas mentioned that he had squared off against a gigantic UFO while engaging in a training flight in the skies of northern Chile.

According to the military man, the object was the size of 10 or 15 aircraft carriers, and its presence was picked up by the radars aboard two F-5 jet fighters as well as the Cerro Moreno airport in Antofagasta
.
– What do you remember about your contact with the UFO?

Over 20 years have gone by (this was in 1978). I was a captain and was flying a mission with two F-5 fighters. It was noon and I was flying with captain Danilo Catalán – we were both flight instructors. Accompanying us was Fernando Gomez, an avionics tech, and another trainee. The F-5 is radar-equipped, and a line appeared from side to side – in other words, a trace throughout the bottom side of the screen. A trace for a surface ship, a cruiser, is approximately one centimeter long, but this line went from one side [of the screen] to another. I assumed the radar scope had failed, and told Danilo Catalán, but his radar also “failed”. I then advised the ground radar at Antofagasta and they also picked up the line. We were engaged with these details when we looked toward the east: we were flying from north to south in the vicinity of Mejillones, and saw a deformed cigar-shaped object. Deformed, like a plaintain banana. It was swathed in smoke.

What was the object’s size?
It was large and must have been some 15 to 20 miles away. It moved in the same direction as us. We had no missiles, guns or anything. As you can imagine, the fright was more or less considerable. We could see a large thing surrounded in smoke, and from which a vapor issued. All of this situation must have lasted some five minues. We approached the UFO but it was motionless. It neither approached nor retreated – it merely sailed parallel to us. It was quite impressive, because it was truly something strange, and something could be seen in concealment behind the smoke.

What happened later?
The object then disappeared toward Easter Island at an impressive rate of speed. The sky cleared and the lines on the radar vanished. However, there had been an object physically flying there. It’s not a yarn, let me tell you. It’s my only experience with UFOs.

Retired general Hernan Gabrielli (radio interview)

     iNTERVIEW REGARDING AN INCIDENT IN

 

Alejandro Guillier (journalist): . How do you do, general? Good morning.

Hernan Gabrielli Rojas (general-Ret.): Hello, Alejandro. Good morning to you.

Alejandro Guillier: This occurred in ’78, according to one version, but what is the story about your running into a UFO while flying a warplane?

Hernan Gabrielli: We were two F-5s, dual training craft, and we were returning to base after completing our mission, Cerro Moreno, noon. From Mejillones to Antofagasta, at an altitude of some 35,000 feet – 40,000 feet. I suddenly detected a radar fault and saw a line that ran side to side on the scope, and my student, Danilo Catalán, also detected the same, and curiously enough it was the ground radar, which has a large screen, that also indicated a radar fault. At that time we looked toward [the part of the sky indicated on the radar screen] and we saw that UFO.

Alejandro Guillier: What was it exactly? What was it you managed to see? Can it be described?

Hernan Gabrielli: It was visualized as a smoke-covered, half- deformed banana, very large, in other words, very large in plain sight. We were between 15 or 20 miles away. It was tremendously large and surrounded by a fumarole which moved in our very same direction and at the same speed as our aircraft.

Hernan Gabrielli: We approached it carefully and…but those were good instructions. We were heading back from Attack 1, which is a combat tactic involving gun cameras, no cannon, missiles or anything else. So we approached it with caution. Unfortunately the UFO did not go away toward a single minute, so we arrived in an instant.

Alejandro Guillier: But I understand that you had to ascend.

Hernan Gabrielli: No…

Alejandro Guillier: In order to approach, what was your position? Going upward..

Hernan Gabrielli: No…we shared the same altitude, between 30,000 and 35,000 feet.

Alejandro Gabrielli: But F-5s are swift airplanes. When you got near it scurried way so…

Hernan Gabrielli: Of course. It’s a fighter that covers 10 nautical miles a minute, in other words, 20 kilometers a minute. That is the normal speed for that aircraft.

Alejandro Guillier: And this object you saw, how soon did it vanish? At what speed?

Hernan Gabrielli: Unimaginable, in other words, thousands of nautical miles a minute, because it vanished toward the west suddenly and the screen cleared up. In other words, all three radar screens–the ground radar, mine and Danilo’s — were operating normally; it wasn’t just a visual experience but a physical one as well, a material one, that materialised on the screen. Now, if you ask me what it is, where it comes from, don’t ask me. I haven’t the slightest idea.

Alejandro Guillier: Now…is this time of sighting customary among Chilean military pilots?

Hernan Gabrielli: No, they are not.

Alejandro Guillier: And has any other functionary remarked that he had been flying and seen strange things?

Hernan Gabrielli: Look, at that time there was also another sighting by a functionary near Calama, but no…that was the age of the Vampire aircraft.

Alejandro Guillier: What’s that?

Hernan Gabrielli: Vampires were wooden aircraft, and the fighter climbed to a certain number of feet and could see from below that this UFO didn’t…didn’t move. However, as the pilot climbed, he said that the object or UFO’s size was such that…

Alejandro Guillier:…that it didn’t move and he could never reach it.
Hernan Gabrielli: He never reached it. They later sent out a pair of fighters, then an F-5 and nothing, really…

Alejandro Guillier: And they couldn’t continue climbing.

Hernan Gabrielli: No, they couldn’t continue their ascent.

Alejandro Guiller: It reached its maximum altitude and then…

Hernan Gabrielli: Fifty something thousand feet, and it had to turn back.

Alejandro Gabrielli: And by the descriptions you recall, general, was there any similarity with the sighting you had in Antofagasta?

Hernan Gabrielli: No, because this one had another shape, it had a shape…in other words, as though looking from below upward, the pilots flying at the time said it was triangular.

Alejandro Guillier: Triangular…it couldn’t have been an American plane, one of those spy planes.

Hernan Gabrielli: I don’t think so. This was 1978. The latest thing around at the time was the SR-71, which is a U.S. spy plane, but it flies at Mach 3, so there is displacement. This thing did not move.

Alejandro Guillier: Right, this thing was suspended in the air. Well, and after that you landed and must’ve had a shot of whisky, I imagine.

Hernan Gabrielli: No, no. There were remarks, in other words, each combat or training flight is its own story, so this was just another anecdote.

Alejandro Guillier: Now, why does the FACH [Chilean Air Force] handle all of this with such secrecy, because it has in fact appeared before Congress, before parliamentarians, and everyone was deathly silent…there were no such things. All they do is create more concern, because one says: “Well, there must be something awful that the FACH, the senators and the deputies don’t want to discuss,” and in this case they were all quiet.

Hernan Gabrielli: Look, it’s not that there’s an unwillingness to talk, but since it is an almost intangible piece of information it cannot be handled, it cannot be processed. To tell you the truth, the base commander is informed and then the page is turned and normal activity resumes.

Alejandro Guillier: Right. Well, last week in Calama, a LAN airliner was flying over the weekend with the players of the Wanderers team for the big match against Cobrelola and the pilot was forced to make a spectacular turn, diving to avoid a collision. Supposedly there was no airplane there. This would also be equivalent to a UFO.

Hernan Gabrielli: Surely. In other words, if the pilots were forced into taking an evasive maneuver, with passengers aboard, it must have been something…

14. Chilean soldier loses five days to UFO (The Valdes Case)

Date of sighting: April 25, 1977

“Soldier loses 5 days to UFO”

SANTIAGO, Chile — A Chilean soldier is still in shock after a weird, five-day ordeal with a UFO.

This is his story.

It was 4:15 a.m. in Chile’s far north desert country,

Six members of an army patrol were bedded down around a campfire while two men stood guard. Suddenly, two bright objects began descending from the sky.

One dropped into the Andes foothills out of direct sight, but the men in the patrol, now fully awake, could see the glow of its light.

The second, they said, lowered almost to the ground about 500 yards away from the camp. The men said it shone with a violet light with two points of intense red.

Cpl. Armando Valdes, the patrol leader, ordered the soldiers to take up their weapons. Then he set out alone to investigate and, according to the men, simply vanished. Fifteen minutes later, they said, he reappeared, tried to speak and passed out.

They said he regained consciousness about 7 a.m. but that his watch showed only 4:30, the approximate time he reappeared. They also said the date on the watch had been advanced five days, and that Yaldes now had about a week’s growth of beard.

According to his comrades, when Valdes was beginning to regain consciousness he said: “You do not know who we are, nor where we come from. But I tell you that we will soon return.”

Skeptics

This purported sighting occurred April 25, and since the soldiers’ tale was publicized dozens of other unidentified flying objects have been reported up and down the 2,700-mile length of Chile.

Valdes says he does not recall anything that happened during the 15 minutes he was missing-Some skeptics said the soldiers may have seen a desert mirage. But other sightings have been reported on the outskirts of this capital city, in the rainy lake region about BOO mites to the south, and over the Straits of Magellan at I he cold southern tip of the continent.

The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the University of Chile jointly operate a space tracking station a few miles north of Santiago, but officials at the station had no official comment on the reports.

A source at the station who asked not to be identified said he felt some of the previous UFO sightings in Chile were satellites or airplanes. But he said the most, recent sightings, made at relatively close distances, did not appear to be satellites.

Oscar Bravo, a radio announcer at Punta Arenas, the major town on the Straits of Magellan, said he awoke about 3 a.m. one night and went, to the kitchen for a glass of water.

Speed

“First, I noticed the sky was bright,” he said.

“This caused me to open the curtains, and I could see these two things suspended in the air emitting a strong light, bright and orange.

“The light went out but returned, with a violent color. Then these two things, of oval shape, moved at a rapid speed, opening themselves like a V and closing at a higher point in the sky.” They finally disappeared over the straits, he said.

A few nights later, passengers on a bus going from Puerto Monti to Puerto Varas in southern Chile said they saw something similar about. 100 yards above them in the sky.

Several people who have seen UFOs recently estimated their size at about 12 feet in diameter. Most say they are round or oval—”like a huge wagon wheel,” said one woman.

  F-4 Jet Chase over Iran 1976

Date: September 18, 1976
Location: Tehran, Iran

Source: Don Berliner, UFO Briefing Document: The Best Available Evidence
[go to original source]
One of the best documented UFO-aircraft incidents took place over the skies of Tehran, Iran, on the night of September 18-19, 1976, when a UFO was observed flying over the capital’s restricted airspace.
Two U.S.-made F-4 Phantom II jet fighters of the Imperial Iranian Air Force were scrambled, but as the pilots closed in on the target, their communications and weapons systems were suddenly jammed. The incident was confirmed by high ranking officers of the Iranian Air Force and later documented by several agencies of the U.S. military.
Lt. General Azarbarzin, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Operations of the Imperial Iranian Air Force, confirmed in a 1977 interview the strong electromagnetic effect experienced by the two F-4s:
“That is true. They both were scrambled and they locked on the target but they received a very strong jamming. And then they lost almost every avionics system they had on the airplane… The jets couldn’t fire their missiles because they had very strong jamming… this technology it [UFO] was using for jamming was something we haven’t had before and we don’t have it. It doesn’t exist because it was a very wide band and could jam different bands, different frequencies at the same time. It’s very unusual.”
General Nader Yousefi, Base Operations commander and the number three man in the Imperial Iranian Air Force, authorized the scramble mission and was also an eyewitness, as described in a recent TV interview:
“I put down my phone [with the Control Tower] and I ran to my balcony to see if I can see that object. I saw a big star among the other stars, which it was at least twice as large as the normal stars… It was around 12 miles [19 km.], we lost communication and I heard nothing from the pilots, so I was so scared what’s going to happen and what happened to the pilots. I asked from the tower controller to tell them to continue their mission and see if they can get more information from the flying object… and it [UFO] was coming toward them, they try to shoot them down, when they squeezed the trigger it didn’t work and the trigger was inoperative, they couldn’t shoot the missiles.”
The sequence of events can be reconstructed from both Iranian sources and declassified U.S. intelligence documents:
Between 10:30 and 11:15 p.m. on September 18, several calls were received by the Control Tower at Mehrabad Airport, reporting an unknown object hovering 1,000 feet (300 m.) above the ground in the northern section of Tehran. The night shift supervisor, Hossain Perouzi, initially didn’t pay too much attention. The radar system was turned off since it was under repair. After he received the fourth telephone call at 11:15 p.m., Perouzi went to the terrace next to the tower and observed the UFO with binoculars:
“Suddenly I saw it. It was rectangular in shape, probably seven to eight meters [24 to 27 ft.] long and about two meters [7 ft.] wide. From later observations I made, I would say it was probably cylindrical. The two ends were pulsating with a whitish blue color. Around the mid-section of the cylinder there was this small red light that kept going around in a circle… I was amazed. I didn’t know what to think. There definitely was a very strange object there in the sky right over Tehran.”
At 12:30 a.m. on September 19, Perouzi called the Air Force Command post to report the UFO. The Base Commander, in turn, called General Yousefi, who authorized the scramble of an F-4 Phantom jet from Shahrokhi AFB to investigate. The first scramble is summarized in a “Memorandum for Record” from the U.S. Defense Attaché Office (DAO) in Tehran:
“The F-4 took off at 01:30 a.m. and proceeded to a point about 40 nm [45 statute miles or 75 km.] North of Tehran. Due to its brilliance the object was easily visible from 70 miles [110 km.] away. As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nm [29 statute miles or 46 km.], he lost all instrumentation and communications (UHF and Intercom). He broke off the intercept and headed back to Shahrokhi. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications.”
At 01:40 a.m., Gen. Yousefi authorized a second F-4 scramble piloted by Lt. Jafari, who quickly established radar contact with the UFO. The DAO Memorandum describes the events of the second scramble:
“The size of the radar return was comparable to that of a [Boeing] 707 tanker. The visual size of the object was difficult to discern because of its intense brilliance. The light that it gave off was that of flashing strobe lights arranged in a rectangular pattern of alternating blue, green, red and orange, in color. The sequence of the lights was so fast that all the colors could be seen at once.”
“The object and the pursuing F-4 continued a course to the south of Tehran when another brightly lighted object, estimated to be .5 to .33 the apparent size of the moon, came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F-4 at a very fast rate. The pilot attempted to fire an AIM-9 missile at the object, but at that instant his weapons control panel went off and he lost all communications (UHF and Interphone). At this point, the pilot initiated a turn and negative G dive to get away.”
The aircraft electric system went back to normal once the F-4 reached a certain distance from the UFO. The small object returned to the primary object, but a second one emerged and flew toward the ground. Gen. Yousefi observed the landing from the balcony of his Tehran residence:
“He went down and landed on the ground and now it is a communication between the mothership and that small flying object, and it shows the lights between those two is connected.”
More strange events were still reported that night. A UFO seemed to follow the F-4 as it approached the runway, and a civil airliner experienced communications failure but did not see anything. The DAO Memorandum describes the investigation early that morning:
“During daylight, the F-4 crew was taken out to the area in a helicopter where the object apparently had landed. Nothing was noticed at the spot where they thought the object landed (a dry lake bed), but as they circled off to the West of the area they picked up a very noticeable beeper signal. At that point, where the return was the loudest was a small house with a garden. They landed and asked the people within if they had noticed anything strange last night. The people talked about a loud noise and a very bright light like lightning.”
The trail ends there. Although the Attaché Office added that the area had been checked for possible radiation and that “more information will be forwarded when it becomes available,” the details surrounding the beeper signal and the ground witnesses have not been released. A report published in a 1978 classified U.S. military journal, MIJI Quarterly, basically repeats the facts contained in the original DAO message, although its author begins the article with this interesting remark:
“Sometime in his career, each pilot can expect to encounter strange, unusual happenings which will never be adequately or entirely explained by logic or subsequent investigation. The following article recounts such an episode as reported by two F-4 Phantom crews of the Imperial Iranian Air Force during late 1976. No additional information or explanation of the strange events has been forthcoming; the story will be filed away and probably forgotten, but it makes interesting, and possibly disturbing, reading.”
Recent taped testimonies by Iranian Air Force Generals Nader Yousefi and Mahmoud Sabahat, now retired and living in exile in the United States, reveal that Gen. John Secord, then chief of the USAF mission in Iran, attended a high level briefing with Iranian authorities and the pilots and air traffic controllers involved in the incident. A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) “Evaluation” summarized the salient features of the Iranian incident:
“An outstanding report. This case is a classic which meets all the criteria necessary for a valid study of the UFO phenomenon:
“a) The object was seen by multiple witnesses from different locations (i.e. Shemiram, Mehrabad and the dry lake bed) and viewpoints (both airborne and from the ground).
“b) The credibility of many of the witnesses was high (an Air Force General, qualified aircrews, and experienced radar operators).
“c) Visual sightings were confirmed by radar.
“d) Similar electromagnetic effects (EME) were reported by three separate aircraft.
“e) There were physiological effects on some crew members (i.e. loss of night vision due to the brightness of the object).
“f) An inordinate amount of maneuverability was displayed by the UFOs.”

 Black sphere hovers near U.S. Naval Comm. Station at North West Cape, Australia

Date: October 25, 1973
Location: North-West Cape, Australia

NORTH-WEST CAPE
On a narrow peninsula, over one thousand kilometres to the north of the main centres of population in Western Australia, stands an enigmatic monument to the military ethic. It is a remote spot even for a country as vast and thinly populated as Australia. A vast array of antennas and towers stand out in stark contrast to the harsh natural beauty of the surrounding terrain. Rising to a dizzying height of 387 metres is Tower Zero, the central structure of a vast array of satellite and radio communications equipment. Another 12 towers stand in two concentric rings around it. The towers support ‘large spider webs of wire’, a Very Low Frequency antenna array covering one thousand acres, the largest facility of its kind in the world. Altogether the base, which consists of three main sites, is spread over 60 kilometres. Collectively the sites function as a window into an extraordinary world that few of us are privy to, the vast and highly secretive world of military intelligence. The site is officially called US Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt, but is more popularly known as North-West Cape.
In the vast scheme of facilities that make up the worldwide US intelligence gathering network, North-West Cape, with a reported 430 US military staff, plays an important and acutely sensitive role. During the Cold War it was used for communications with US and Australian navy ships, including US nuclear submarines, in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. It was also used to intercept Soviet communications. It was never very far from the drama and controversy that pivoted around the fears of possible nuclear war between the superpowers.
Along with other US bases in Australia, such as Pine Gap and Nurrungar, North-West Cape has long been a matter of acute political sensitivity, specifically related to claims that such sites would be prime nuclear targets during a major outbreak of hostilities between the superpowers. On 11 October 1973, five days after the Middle East War broke out, North-West Cape along with other US bases in Australia was put on full alert. According to Richard Hall, in his book The Secret State, this alert status was to escalate dramatically due to ‘an NSA misreading of Arabic in a Syrian message to the USSR which led Kissinger and Nixon to believe that Soviet troops might be sent to the Middle East1.
This fiasco climaxed early on the morning of 25 October 1973, in Washington. A full nuclear alert went out to all US forces. North-West Cape was used to communicate the alert to both conventional and nuclear forces in this region. Local time at North-West Cape was around early evening. It was then that an intruder was spotted in the airspace over the base. According to official reports, at 7.30 p.m. Lieutenant Commander M, of the US Navy, observed ‘a large black, airborne object’ at a distance of approximately eight kilometres to the west, at an altitude estimated at 600 metres. M was driving from the naval communication station towards the support township of Exmouth, along Murat Road. He reported that the object hovered, with no apparent noise or exhaust, then, ‘After about 20-25 seconds the craft accelerated at unbelievable speed and disappeared to the north.’
Back at the base, US Navy Fire Captain L had also seen the object. At 7.20 p.m. he was driving towards the officers’ club when he noticed a large black object in the sky, which he at first took to be a small cloud formation. He got out of his car and stood for several minutes watching the object, which he now saw looked like a black sphere, hovering. The sky was clear and light, and there were no clouds about. The object was about 10 metres in diameter and was about 300 metres above the ground. It was completely stationary except for a halo around its centre, which appeared to be either revolving or pulsating. It suddenly took off at tremendous speed and disappeared in a few seconds.
The Americans investigated the two sightings, naturally concerned in case the UFO was some form of new Soviet aircraft, but apparently no explanation of its true nature was ever found.

 Coyne Helicopter Incident

Date: October 18, 1973
Location: Mansfield, Ohio, United States
Source: Jennie Zeidman, CUFOS
[go to original source]
The Coyne case (or “Army helicopter incident”) stands out as, perhaps the most credible (in the “high strangeness” category) of the 1973 wave. An Army Reserve helicopter crew of four men encountered a gray, metallic-looking, cigar-shaped object, with unusual lights and maneuvers, as they were airborne between Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio. The crew won the NATIONAL ENQUIRER Blue Ribbon Panel’s $ 5,000 award for “the most scientifically valuable report of 1973.”
On October 18, 1973, at approximately 10:30 PM a UH-1H helicopter of the United States Army Reserve left Port Columbus, Ohio, for its home base of Cleveland Hopkins airport, ninety-six nautical miles to the north-northeast. In command, in the right-front seat, was Captain Lawrence J. Coyne, thirty-six, with nineteen years of flying experience. At the controls, in the left-front seat, sat First Lieutenant Arrigo Jezzi, twenty-six, a chemical engineer. Behind Jezzi sat Sergeant John Healey, thirty-five, a Cleveland policeman who was the flight medic, and Coyne was the Crew Chief, Sergeant Robert Yanacsek, twenty-three, a computer technician. The helicopter was cruising at 2,500 feet above sea level at an indicated airspeed of ninety knots, above mixed hills, woods, and rolling farmland, averaging 1,200 elevation. The night was totally clear, calm, and starry. The last quarter moon was just rising.
About ten miles south of Mansfield, Healey noticed a single red light off to the west, flying south. It seemed brighter than a standard aircraft port-wing light, but it was not considered relevant traffic, and he does not recall mentioning it. An estimated two minutes later, at approximately 11:02 PM, Yanacsek noted a single red light on the south-east horizon. He assumed it was either a radio-tower beacon or an aircraft port-wing light – most likely an aircraft, since it was not flashing – and he watched it “for a long time, a minute to ninety seconds” before calling it to Coyne’s attention. Coyne, smoking, relaxing, glanced over, noted the light, assumed it was distant traffic, and told told Yanacsek casually to “keep an eye on it.”
After an estimated additional thirty seconds, Yanacsek announced that the light had turned toward the helicopter and appeared to be on a converging flight path. Coyne verified Yanacsek’s assessment, grabbed the controls from Jezzi, and put the UH-1H into a powered descent of approximately 500 feet per minute. Almost simultaneously, Coyne established radio contact with Mansfield control tower, ten miles to the northwest. Coyne thought the flight was an Air National Guard F-100 from Mansfield. After an initial acknowledgment (“This is Mansfield Tower, go ahead Army 1-5-triple-4”), radio contact failed. Jezzi then attempted transmission on both UHF and VHF frequencies without success. Although the channel and keying tones were both heard, there was no response from Mansfield; and a subsequent check by Coyne revealed that Mansfield had no tape of even the initial transmission, the the last F-100 had landed at 10:47 P.M.
The red light continued its radial bearing and increased greatly in intensity. Coyne increased his rate of descent to 2,000 feet per minute and his airspeed to 100 knots. The last altitude he noted was 1,700 feet. Just as a collision appeared imminent, the unknown light halted in its westward course and assumed a hovering relationship above and in front of the helicopter. “It wasn’t cruising, it was stopped. For maybe ten to twelve seconds – just stopped,” Yanacsek reported. Coyne, Healey, and Yanacsek agree that a cigar-shaped, slightly domed object substended an angle of nearly the width of the front windshield. A featureless, gray, metallic-looking structure was precisely delineated against the background stars. Yanacsek reported “a suggestion of windows” along the top dome section. The red light emanated from the bow, a white light became visible at a slightly indented stern, and then, from aft/below, a green ‘pyramid shaped” beam equated to a directional spotlight became visible. The green beam passed upward over the helicopter nose, swung up through the windshield, continued upward and entered the tinted upper window panels. At that point (and not before), the cockpit was enveloped in green light. Jezzi reported only a bright white light, comparable to the leading light of a small aircraft, visible through the top “greenhouse’ panels of the windshield. After the estimated ten seconds of “hovering,” the object began to accelerate off to the west, now with only the white “tail” light visible. The white light maintained its intensity even as its distance appeared to increase, and finally (according to Coyne and Healey), it appeared to execute a decisive 45 degree turn to the right, head out toward Lake Erie, and then “snap out” over the horizon. Healey reported that he watched the object moving westward “for a couple of minutes.” Jezzi said it moved faster than the 250-knot limit for aircraft below 10,000 feet, but not as fast as the 600-knot approach speed reported by the others. There was no noise from the object or turbulence during the encounter, except for one “bump” as the object moved away to the west. After the object had broken off its hovering relationship, Jezzi and Coyne noted that the magnetic compass disk was rotating approximately four times per minute and that the altimeter read approximately 3,500 feet; a 1,000 foot-per-minute climb was in progress. Coyne insists that the collective was still bottomed from his evasive descent. Since the collective could not be lowered further, he had no alternative but to lift it, whatever the results, and after a few seconds of gingerly maneuvering controls (during which the helicopter reached nearly 3,800 feet), positive control was achieved. By that time the white light had already moved into the Mansfield area. Coyne had been subliminally aware of the climb; the others not at all, yet they had all been acutely aware of the g-forces of the dive. The helicopter was brought back to the flight plan altitude of 2,500 feet, radio contact was achieved with Canton/Akron, the night proceeded uneventfully to Cleveland.
Apparent ground witnesses to this event have been found by William E. Jones and Warren Nicholson, independent UFO researchers from Columbus, Ohio.
Mrs. E. C. and four adolescents were driving south from Mansfield to their rural home on October 18, 1973, at approximately 11 P.M., when they were attracted to a single steady bright red light. flying south “at medium altitude.” They watched for perhaps half a minute until it disappeared to the south over the trees.
Approximately five minutes later, now driving east on Route 430, approaching the Charles Mill Reservoir, the family became aware of two bright lights – red and green – descending rapidly toward them from the southeast. When first seen, the angular distance between the lights was about 2 degrees; the red light appeared to be leading. Mrs. C. pulled over to the shoulder of the deserted road and kept the engine and car lights running. The lights – bigger than point sources – slowed and moved as a unit to the right of the car and the family became aware of yet another group of lights – some of these flashing – and “a beating sound, a lot of racket” approaching from the southwest. Two of the children (cousins, both age thirteen) jumped from the car and observed both a helicopter and the object, which they described as “like a blimp,” “as big as a school bus,” “sort of pear shaped.” The object at that point subtended an angle equivalent to “a 100-mm cigarette box held at arm’s length.” The object assumed a hovering position over the helicopter, an estimated 500 feet back from the road and 500 feet above the trees. (The ground elevation at the site is almost exactly 1,000 feet above sea level; thus at the noted 1,700-foot altimeter reading, the helicopter was actually about 650 feet above the trees.) The object’s green light then flared up. “It was like rays coming down,” the witnesses said. The helicopter, the trees, the road, the car – everything turned green.” The kids scrambled with fright back into the car and Mrs. C. proceeded apace. Their estimated total time outside the car was “about a minute.” Neither ground witnesses nor aircrew are sure at what point the two aircraft disengaged; the ground witnesses reported that the unidentified object crossed to the north side of the road behind the car, appeared to move eastward for a few seconds, then reversed its direction and climbed toward the northwest towards Mansfield – a flight path which correlates perfectly the motion of the object established through analysis of the aircrew’s report.
Any theory of the object’s being a meteor (UFO skeptic Philip Klass maintains that the object was a “fireball of the Orionid meteor shower”) can readily be rejected on the basis of: (1) the duration of the event (an estimated 300 seconds); (2) the marked deceleration and hard-angle maneuver of the object at closest approach; (3) the precisely defined shape of the object; and (4) the horizon-to-horizon flight path.
The possibility of a high-performance aircraft likewise is untenable when one examines the positions and colors of the lights with respect to the flight path of the object. To have presented the reported configurations, and been in accordance with FAA regulations, an aircraft would have had to be flying sideways, either standing on its tail, tail-to to the helicopter, or upside-down head-on. Other arguments against aircraft hypothesis are: (1) a fixed-wing aircraft moving across the line of sight would appear to move most rapidly when passing directly in front of the observer; (2) a fixed-wing aircraft would not have the capability of decelerating from high velocity to “hover” within a few seconds time; (3) a helicopter would have the capability of hovering, but would not be capable of the high forward speeds reported; (4) a conventional aircraft, if within 500 to 1,000 feet, would have produced noise audible inside the helicopter; (5) the FAA requires either a strobe or a rotating beacon on either the top or bottom of the fuselage, (6) FAA requires that no aircraft shall fly below 10,000 feet msl at speeds above 250 knots; (7) some of the features of a conventional aircraft would have been seen, e.g., wings, engine pods, windows, empennage, numbers, logo.
Coyne reported that the Magnaflux/Zygio method of nondestructive testing was applied to the rotors the following day and that there was no indication that they had been subjected to fatigue-producing stresses. Comparable times/distances/directions support the possibility that the red light first seen by the C. family, Healey’s red light, and the object of the encounter were all one and the same. Yanacsek’s red light on the eastern horizon was under continuous observation and was unequivocally the object of the encounter.
The case has maintained its high “strangeness-credibility” rating after extended investigation and analysis.

Elizabeth C and her family regularly took their Christmas holidays on the South Coast of New South Wales. One evening, Elizabeth was driving an old Valiant car carrying four other people. The encounter occurred in early January of 1973 just as the group passed the turnoff to Sussex Inlet. Elizabeth drew the attention of the others to the presence of a light ahead. To Elizabeth it looked like the light from an approaching semi-trailer. Then it seemed to move to her left and approached the car like an aircraft passing by. It was then that events took an extraordinary turn. The object, perceived as a bright light, appeared to reverse direction and began to travel alongside the car. This represented a 180 degree change in direction for the UFO. At this point the object appeared to be very large, at ground level and quite close. It maintained a parallel course with them for approximately the next 24 kilometres.
Elizabeth described the object as large, with red lights under portholes. The red lights looked like a thin ribbon of light. Elizabeth said the night was very dark. At that point the UFO was apparent as a large disc-shaped object with possible ‘window’ features along its length. There appeared to be a distinct ‘searchlight’ beam effect that rotated around the bottom of the object. At least one of the witnesses, an army officer, who was in the best position to see the extraordinary display, was certain that figures could be seen in the windows of the object.
At a point near the turnoff to HMAS Albatross Naval Base, the object seemed to suddenly vanish. It appeared to have instantly relocated to a high altitude and moved in a large arc around Nowra and then headed out to sea, where it was lost to sight.
Later that morning, one of the group saw something decidedly odd at their campsite at Shoalhaven Heads. A large number of holidaying campers were gathered at the ocean edge. They saw a number of helicopters passing low over the campsite, heading out to sea. The helicopters were flying over a fiery mass in the water. Yet the Navy later said it knew nothing of this incident. Because of their earlier experience and the campsite events, three members of the group, including Elizabeth, went to HMAS Albatross to report their experience. They feared a light-hearted or even an unwelcome reception; instead the group was the subject of a high level and detailed interview. They were told that the UFO had had numerous witnesses, and that the base radar had been affected by the UFO during the incident. The army officer in the group said that after he had returned to his unit he was interviewed about the South Coast experience by intelligence officers.
I later interviewed Elizabeth C and the army officer who was with her, and found them to be impressive and compelling witnesses. There seems little doubt that something extraordinary happened, but no official confirmation has been made. I contacted the Navy, which denied all knowledge of the incident.

The Isla De Lobos Case in Uruguay

(a) The place.
Isla de Lobos is a small island a few miles off the Uruguayan coast, just where the River Plate meets the Atlantic Ocean. Its name means literally “island of the fur seals”, as these animals roam freely, and it is a lonely place where the only outstanding feature is the lighthouse.
The maintenance of this lighthouse is the responsibility of the Navy, and for that purpose a small garrison of 4 or 5 men is kept on the island. Their main task is to attend to the electric generators, as the actual operation of the beam is automatic. It is a routine and non-stressing job, and the tours of duty are 15 days in and 15 days out.
—–
(b) The incident.
On the night of October 28, 1972, there were five men at the house which serves as headquarters for the Navy personnel: the witness, Corporal Juan Fuentes Figueroa; two enlisted men, Jose Gomez and Hector Gimenez; a telegraph operator, Jose Lima; and the sub-officer in charge, Francisco Cascudo. After dinner, the men sat around the table for a while, talking and playing cards, until at 10:10 PM it was time for Corporal Fuentes to inspect the generators, which are located at the base of the lighthouse proper.
The lighthouse is a 66-meter-high tower sitting at the center of a large building which contains the electric generators, the telegraph office and other dependencies. The top of this building is a flat terrace, which is about 6 meters above the adjacent terrain (Fig.1). The house where the garrison lives is at a distance of 45 meters from the lighthouse.
As soon as Cpt. Fuentes started to walk toward the lighthouse, he noticed on top of the terrace some lights that shouldn’t be there. In fact, he thought first of a car, a complete impossibility, and his reaction was to return to the house and procure a pistol that he had in his room. To do this, he didn’t have to pass through the kitchen where the other men were, so he didn’t speak to them. As will be discussed later, this behavior is typical of the personality of the witness.
Carrying the pistol, he went outside again and started walking decisively but not fast toward the lighthouse, meanwhile removing the safety from the gun and cocking it. As he advanced, he noted that the object had several lights: some white, some yellowish, and a third color that he describes as violet, as in the “rainbow”. Those lights were sufficient to allow him a good view, and he saw that a figure was next to the object and that a second was in the process of descending. A third and taller figure started to descend almost at once, but at the same moment, the initial two figures noticed Fuentes progressing toward them. They had what appeared to Fuentes as a moment of communication, and all three of them faced him.
By that time, Fuentes was at about 27 meters from the object, which, we will recall, was on the top of a 6-meter terrace. Hence, the object was above him, and he started to raise his extended arm to shoot. He was never to complete his motion, as the entities prevented him, from doing so. Fuente, a man of limited education, tried in vain to explain to the investigators how this was accomplished. It was not telepathy, and he felt some physical effects, like a “vibration” and his hair standing on end; but more than anything else it was like a premonition, in his words like: “Don’t shoot because it is useless”. At any rate, he felt paralyzed and confused, and was unable to shoot.
The action continued rather fast: the entities reentered their craft, the tallest one first. Although Fuentes did not see steps or a handrail, he could see quite well the motion of the figures against the lights of the object, outlined by the light coming out through the open door. He is certain that there were steps, as while the entities were climbing up with their backs toward the witness, their motions were like those of a person pulling himself up with handrails.
The door closed sideways, and the craft started to move straight up, emitting a humming sound until it reached about 45 meters, as judged by the adjacent lighthouse tower. It then tilted, belched a blinding fireball from the bottom, and disappeared in silence at a tremendous speed toward the southeast.
The witness returned to the house, where the other men noticed him white as a paper and still with a gun in hand. When he said that he had seen a flying saucer, he was not believed, except perhaps by Sub-Officer Cascudo.
Corporal Fuentes was rather upset that his equals and his immediate superiors were dubious of his story, and was planning when he returned to Montevideo to go to one of the leading newspapers and make his experience public. However, before this was accomplished, he was ordered to report to a higher ranking officer, who carefully listened to what Fuentes had to say. He then disappeared into an office in which two members of the personnel of the American Embassy had been waiting.
According to Fuentes, they were officers of the “Spatial Affair Service”, (sic) and their presence in the Command Offices was not unusual. Fuentes was left waiting in the corridor, and after a while someone came out and offered him some drawings for inspection and asked him to select the one closest to what hi has seen. He did so and was dismissed. He never talked directly to the Americans, but from the conversation overheard through the door, he concluded that they were surprised at the short distance of Fuente’s observation. And I am amazed at the continuous interest shown by American Embassies in collecting information about a phenomenon that we have been told many times does not exist…

(c) Craft and entities.
While the whole incident lasted about one minute, Corporal Fuentes had the object in direct view for more than about 15 seconds. It was well illuminated by its own lights, and it was fortuitous that the external lights usually illuminating the exterior of the installations were not in operation that night. If the floodlights had been on, they would have prevented a clear view by the witness, even blinding him at the location of the observation. As things turned out, he observed the entities in the background light of their own craft, and even if this prevented him from seeing facial details, for example, their outline and motions were quite evident.
When Corporal Fuentes started to walk toward the lighthouse, the first entity was already on the terrace, while the second was alighting from the craft. These two entities were about 1.50 m. (5 ft), while the third one, the last to descend, was 1.75-1.80 m. (6 ft). Thus, their heights were within the normal human limits (Fig. 2). Their silhouettes were dark, as if they were wearing heavy black rubber suits. The witness attributed their slow and deliberate motions to the weight of their suits, and thinks that his presence surprised the strangers at the beginning of an operation never to be completed. Their descent from the craft was done backwards, as if using a ladder not seen by the witness. Likewise, when they climbed back into the object, their motions were those of a person pulling himself up using handrails.
The most distinctive feature of the entities, clearly noticeable in the profile view that they offered to the witness, was the elongated shape of the back o their heads. It is not clear if this corresponds to the heads themselves, or it is was the result of some type of hood or garment.
The craft itself had the shape of an inverted bowl, with a diameter of between 4 and 5 meters. It had a dome on top and a rectangular aperture or door, used by the entities to descend (Fig. 3). It also had legs, which the witness saw clearly during the first stage of the departure. as the craft was slowly gaining altitude. Those legs did not fold like the landing gear of a plane, but retracted telescopically.
The surface of the craft was undoubtedly metallic, with a somewhat reddish color that Fuentes compared to mahogany. The most distinctive feature of the object was the antenna that topped it, shaped like a corkscrew and rotating.
The lights have already been described, and it only is necessary to add that they seemed to Fuentes like “little squares”, moving and flashing like “an advertising sign”.
————
(d) The witness.
This is a single witness sighting, and yet it has become the best case coming from Uruguay due to the in-depth investigation done by the members of C.I.O.V.I.. This paper is based on the information contained in their report on this case. (Ref.1).
The first stage of the investigation consisted of two lengthy interviews with the witness in his own home. The two interviews were recorded, and the transcripts do not reveal any discrepancies in the narrative.
This was followed by an “in situ” reconstruction of the events. with the participation of the witness. Sub-officer Cascudo, present on the island that night, verified that the initial version by Corporal Fuentes was similar to the subsequent descriptions relayed later to the investigating team. Sub-officer Cascudo, as well as other superiors of Corporal Fuentes, described him as a “simple and honest man, incapable of inventing a story of this nature”.
But indeed the most fascinating part of the CIOVI investigation was to request the assistance of a professional and to submit the witness to a battery of psychological tests that extended over a total of 9 hours, and that included, among others, Raven, Bender, Rorschach and PMK.
The result of those various tests dwell on positive and negative aspects of the personality of the witness, but when analyzed in the light of the narrative presented by Corporal Fuentes, they complement each other and tend to lend credibility to the story.
In what follows, the key elements of the psychological evaluation will be indicated with quotation marks, interspace with comments on how they relate to the particular facets of the case.
First of all, the witness is described as “sincere, uncomplicated and simple”. He expresses what for him is the truth, and he does that in a straighrforward manner, with no cultural burden distiring what he has to say.
The witness “has no tendency to fabrication or fantasy”, which if existing would damage his credibility. Moreover, he has “less that average intellectual capacity”, to which the psychologist adds that he “lacks an average imagination” and “has a remarkably poor knowledge of what is going on in the social environment”. All of these are pluses from the viewpoint of the credibility of the witness, and negate the possibility of him having created the whole story. And in fact, the investigators were able to determine that the ufological knowledge of the witness was practically non-existent.
From the emotional viewpoint, the witness is typified as “insecure, prompt to react anxiously and even aggressively” to an unexpected situation. That is exactly what the witness did when confronted with the impossible presence of a car on the terrace: his first reaction was to arm himself, although he could not explain later to the investigators what he intended to do with the gun. But he was following his training, and thus bolstered his confidence.
Another result of the psychological tests is that the witness has “a balanced psychic personality”, and it is “unlikely that he would confabulate by himself, unless an external event would upset him”. To summarize, his poor intellectual capacity and lack of imagination did not allow him to reason what was best to do when confronted with the unexpected, and instead of firing his gun or alerting his companions, he failed to do either, remaining paralyzed and confused. When he returned to the house, the other men noticed his trembling voice and his pale color, so there is no question that an external stimulus affected him deeply.
The conclusion, then, is that the psychology and personality of the witness are such that his reactions and behavior under the circumstances are totally compatible. Therefore, the probability that the witness is telling the truth is very great.
Of course, there is always an uncertainty about what percentage of the description of the witness corresponds to the physical reality of the object and the entities, but we can assert that in fact that Isla de Lobos is a remote place, moreover, a restricted area with difficult access, controlled by the Uruguayan Navy, and where no conventional explanations are viable, the inescapable conclusion is that this case is, using Dr. Maccabee’s coined word, a TRUFO.

US aircraft carrier ‘stopped’ by large, glowing UFO; electromagnetic effects

US Aircraft Carrier stopped by UFO
By Jim Kopf
This encounter occurred in 1971, while aboard the aircraft carrier, USS John F. Kennedy CVA-67 (now CV-67) in the Bermuda Triangle. I was assigned to the communications department of the Kennedy and had been in this section about a year. The ship was returning to Norfolk, VA after completing a two week operational readiness exercise (ORE) in the Caribbean. We were to stand down for 30 days, after arriving in Norfolk, Virginia, to allow the crew to take leave and visit family before deploying to the Mediterranean for six months.
I was on duty in the communications center. My task was to monitor eight teletypes printing the “Fleet Broadcasts”. On the top row were four teletypes each printing messages from four different channels. On the bottom row were four more doing the exact same thing except the signal was carried on different frequencies. If one of the primary receivers started taking “hits” I would be able to retrieve the message from the bottom one. I also notified Facilities Control of any hits so they could tune the receivers. On the other side of the compartment(room) was the NAVCOMMOPNET (Naval Communications Operations Network). This was the Ship to Shore circuit with the top teletype being the receive and the bottom as the send (known as a duplex circuit). Next to this was the Task Group Circuit for ship to ship communications (task group operations or TGO).
It was in the evening, about 20:30 (8:30 PM) and the ship had just completed an eighteen hour “Flight Ops”. I had just taken a message off one of the broadcasts and turned around to file it on a clip board. When I turned back to the teletypes the primaries were typing garbage. I looked down to the alternates which were doing the same. I walked a few feet to the intercom between us and the Facilities Control. I called them and informed them of the broadcasts being out. A voice replied that all communications were out. I then turned and looked in the direction of the NAVCOMMOPNET and saw that the operator was having a problem. I then heard the Task Group operator tell the watch officer that his circuit was out also. In the far corner of the compartment was the pneumatic tubes going to the Signal bridge (where the flashing light and signal flag messages are sent/receive). There is an intercom there to communicate with the Signal Bridge and over this intercom we heard someone yelling “There is something hovering over the ship!” A moment later we heard another voice yelling. “IT IS GOD! IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD!”.
We all looked at each other, there were six of us in the Comm Center, and someone said, “Lets go have a look!”. The Comm Center is amidships, just under the flight deck, almost in the center of the ship. We went out the door, through Facilities Control and out that door, down the passageway (corridor) about 55 feet to the hatch that goes out to the catwalk on the edge of the flight deck (oppisite from the “Island” or that part of the ship where the bridge is). If you have ever been to sea, there is a time called the time of no horizon. This happens in the morning and evening just as the sun comes up or goes down over the horizon.
During this time you cannot tell where the sea and sky meet. This is the time of evening it was. As we looked up, we saw a large, glowing sphere. Well it seemed large, however, there was no point of reference. That is to say, if the sphere were low; say 100 feet above the ship, then it would have been about two to three hundred feet in diameter. If it were say 500 feet about the ship then it would have been larger. It made no sound that I could hear. The light coming from it wasn’t too bright, about half of what the sun would be. It sort of pulsated a little and was yellow to orange.
We didn’t get to looked at it for more than about 20 seconds because General Quarters (Battle stations) was sounding and the Communication Officer was in the passageway telling us to get back into the Comm Center. We returned and stayed there (that was out battle station). We didn’t have much to do because all the communication was still out. After about 20 minutes, the teletypes started printing correctly again. We stayed at General Quarters for about another hour, then secured. I didn’t see or hear of any messages going out about the incident.
Over the next few hours, I talked to a good friend that was in CIC (combat information center) who was a radar operator. He told me that all the radar screens were just glowing during the time of the incident. I also talked to a guy I knew that worked on the Navigational Bridge. He told me that none of the compasses were working and that the medics had to sedate a boatswains mate that was a lookout on the signal bridge. I figured this was the one yelling it was God. It was ironic that of the 5,000 men on a carrier, that only a handful actually saw this phnomenon. This was due to the fact that flight Ops had just be completed a short time before this all started and all the flight deck personnel were below resting. It should be noted that there are very few places where you can go to be out in the open air aboard a carrier. From what I could learn, virtually all electronic components stopped functioning during the 20 minutes or so that what ever it was hovered over the ship. The two Ready CAPs (Combat Air Patrol), which were two F-4 Phantoms that are always ready to be launched, would not start.
I heard from the scuttlebut (slang – rumor mill) that three or four “men in trenchcoats” had landed, and were interviewing the personnel that had seen this phenomena. I was never interviewed, maybe because no one knew that I had seen it.
A few days latter, as we were approaching Norfolk, the Commanding and Executive Officers came on the closed circuit TV system that we had. They did this regularly to address the crew and pass on information. During this particular session the Captain told us how well we did on the ORE and about our upcoming deployment to the Mediterranean. At the very end of his spiel, he said “I would like to remind the crew, that certain events that take place aboard a Naval Combatant Ship, are classified and are not to be discussed with anyone without a need to know”. This was all the official word I ever received or heard of the incident.
Being young and excited about my visit home and going to the Med, I completely forgot about it until years later when my wife and I went to see “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” at the movies when it first came out. In fact the friend that had been the radar operator was with his wife and went with us. As we walked across the parking lot to my car, I ask him if he remembered what We had experienced years earlier on the ship. He looked at me and said he never wanted to talk about it again. As he said it he turned a little pale. I never talked about the incident again. When I discovered “Aliens and Strange Phenomenon” on MSN and started reading the posts I started thinking about it again. Now I seem obsessed in finding out all I can about this phenomena.

Our company had fallen out for morning formation. we were waiting for the 1st seargent to join us when someone in our ranks started saying “what is that?” I looked down the ranks of my platoon and saw that they were pointing at a point approx. 30 degrees above the horizon. What I saw was an object that first appeared to be a full moon only larger by half than I had ever seen it. As I continued watching it, it steadily grew in size untill it was at least 5 times larger than I have ever seen the moon be. There were no light and dark areas on the surface such as the moon has, yet the surface was luminous and exactly as the moon would look if there were no other features on its face. It sat there for about 20 sec. and then a beam of light started (and I do mean started because it moved out from the object very slowly, Its width being the width of the object itself but narrowing as it moved towards the ground, it looked like the beam of a flahlight in reverse only in slow motion
it was about halfway down when 2 F-4s took off under military afterburner and banked straight for it.you could tell they were in afterburner by the length of their exhaust plume. At the same time our first seargent came out of the day room and after seeing what we were hollering about turned around and ran back into his office (apparently to notify someone}. The 2 F-4s formed up and were heading straight towards this object of which it was impossible to tell exactly how far away it was when the beam reversed direction, went back to the object and the object left moving straight awy from us so fast it looked like what happened in those old tube type tv’s when you turned them off and that picture shrunk down to a dot in about 1 sec. Ever since this happened, I have been interested in ufo’s. Always expecting to read an account of this particular sighting. Mainly because not only was it veiwed by my whole company, but apparently by the bases aircraft control tower and someone with the authority to scramble two military aircraft. As soldiers we never heard another word as to what we saw. I can’t beleive no-one has come forward and told about this after so many years, so I am for whatever it’s worth.Personal BackgroundAerospace machinist (computer numerical control).

An Extraordinary UFO Incident Off Chile
24-10-1969
by Bill Chalker
Bill Chalker, an industrial chemist by profession, is one of Australia’s leading UFO investigators. He lives In New South Wales.
———————————–
Editor’s note: Incredible tales of military UFO encounters and cover-ups are legion in the ufological literature. Most depend on the testimony of a single informant. This one is no exception and for that reason must be viewed, unless and until verifying evidence comes forward, as no more than an interesting anecdote. We are publishing it not because we consider it “evidence” of anything — it clearly is not –but because it resembles other such stories in a remarkable way.
That means that either the claimant is drawing on a body of widespread folklore or he, like other claimants telling like tales, is speaking the truth. Chile, a military dictatorship, does not have a Freedom of Information Act to which inquirers seeking verification can turn. Readers who might have access to information that could shed light on this claim are urged to write IUR.
Because of a series of chance events and an overseas trip, I had the opportunity to interview an alleged witness to an extraordinary event that supposedly took place in the Pacific Ocean, about 350 miles to the south of Valparaiso Port, off the coast of Chile. The incident involved a Chilean Naval destroyer and was witnessed by crew members and the commander of the vessel. Up to six UFOs, including one large object, were observed. The objects were verified on radar and observed visually. As the main object moved over the ship, the vessel’s power went out.
As extraordinary as the event itself is its alarming aftermath. According to my informant, a cover-up followed and the witnesses were held in confinement in port for two days, subjected to intense psychological pressures to force them to believe they saw nothing out of the ordinary.
The name of my informant cannot be revealed. He says, however, that he was on duty during the incident and observed the whole event. The location of the interview, even the country in which it took place, also cannot be given. The witness fears that disclosure of either detail could cause him to be recalled to active service in the Chilean Navy. Although he has already served his term of service, he is concerned that enforced military service could be used as a form of punishment.
I must point out that from the very beginning I have been skeptical of many UFO cover-up claims. From my experience as the first civilian researcher to have comprehensive access to the Royal Australian Air Force UFO files, however, I have become more open-minded about such allegations. In this regard I was willing to consider the testimony of my Chilean informant, who to all appearances was sincerely frightened by the events he described to me. That does not mean I have become a ‘believer,’ only that I believe such claims deserve a fair hearing.
The event
Just after midnight, on or about October 24, 1969, a Chilean Navy destroyer, a week out of dry dock at Talcahuano Port (where the ship’s axle had been removed and replaced), was navigating at 20 knots and heading north 20 degrees portside from NNW). The incredible events that followed took place over the next eight minutes.
At 12:43 A.M. the radar officer reported a long-range flying contact. A minute later the “contact” was at 400 miles. Because of the “object’s” speed, the operator suspected a malfunction in his equipment. In the next minute the contact was approximately 150 miles away closing from 331 degrees of true north. But the operator and officer in charge during the late night duty (an officer of second-class rank) speculated that the contact was a “plane flying southeast” –but at 213 miles in a minute: 12,780 mph!
The officer in charge advised the ship’s commander, who asked that an eye be kept on the object. At 12:47 the contact was only 12 miles away. Suddenly the single contact became six “targets.” The “thing spread …. Little dots appeared in the fire of the light on the radar….”
The officer in charge informed the commander just as the objects making the returns came into view. Both eyewitnesses and radar were reporting six objects approaching the ship. The commander came up to the ship’s bridge to see what was going on.
It was a fantastic sight. One massive object and five small objects were approaching at high speed. The “big thing looked like a big box [with] semicircles in the side” looking as if they had been scooped out. It was bathed in brilliant light. “The thing must have been metallic,” my informant told me. “It was bigger than the destroyer, which was about 110 metres long.” He thought it might be at least twice the length of the ship but it was difficult to tell because “the light was bright.”
The five smaller objects were egg-shaped and appeared to be no bigger than eight feet long and five to six feet wide. They were bluish in color.
At about 2000 yards out from the destroyer the smaller objects left the proximity of the larger object. Three went portside and two went starboard. The smaller objects at times seemed to be flying in “elliptical circles backwards and forwards between the big one and our vessel ….
“The main thing did not change direction — if it had been in the sea there would have been a collision.”
A humming noise was audible when the large object got to within 300 yards. It was at this point that the power went out. For a couple of seconds all instruments went dead as the huge craft passed overhead.
At this point the commander came on to the bridge, asking, “What the hell is that?” My informant remarked that the commander “was very calm, because probably he knew what he saw. We didn’t.
“You could see the whole thing, the light was so strong. You could see the water, the funnel head, the head of the ship, the towers, everything… Everybody on the bridge was sort of listening to the noise. I don’t know how long this thing took to go across.”
The bright red lights underneath the main UFO seemed to be moving back and forth inside the “box,” shining through a half-circle or crescent shape on the bottom of the object. On the side were what looked like “corn cobs,” with green or turquoise pulsing lights. These lights, my informant said, “went right through your head.”
The large object passed over the powerless ship. When it was 200 yards away, everything returned to normal. The smaller objects, never coming closer than 500 to 1000 yards, flew around the ship and joined up with the larger object on the other side.
The main object continued on its way until it was about two miles beyond the ship. At that point, along with (we assume) the smaller-objects, it vanished. “It was like somebody opened a big door; then it closed and it was darkness. The only thing that was left behind was like floating little bits of metallic paper.”(!)
At least eight minutes had passed. Three persons had tracked the UFOs on radar. Five persons saw the objects themselves. The ship’s commander ordered everyone to keep silent about what they had seen.
The Cover-Up
The “cover-up” started immediately, According to my informant, the officer in charge (the second-class officer) had made several entries concerning the UFO incident in the ship’s log.
The entries at midnight and on either side of the UFO entries-were routine. Duty proceeded normally for the rest of the morning.
Awakening after he had retired from his shift, the officer rechecked the log, only to find normal entries in what appeared to be his own handwriting. The UFO incident was not mentioned. The officer had been left-handed but an accident had forced him to use his right hand. Because writing was difficult for him, he had to press down hard on the paper. He had to press down so hard, in fact;-that the outline of what he wrote was always visible on the page. But when he checked, it was not. In other words, someone had forged his handwriting but neglected this telltale physical detail.
At 6:45 that morning the destroyer arrived in Valparaiso Port. After eating breakfast, the men on duty during the UFO event were asked to report to the commander. He told them that some people were coming to talk with them and that they were to go with them. The visitors turned out to be two Chilean Navy officers and four Americans in civilian clothes. The Americans, who spoke Spanish, were identified as naval attaches with the U.S. embassy.
The six witnesses were taken to a mine- or torpedo-storage area at the port. Each was taken to a separate room.
My informant was directed to explain what happened last night. When he told them, they said, “No, you didn’t see that !”
“I said that’s what we saw,” my informant related to me. “They started getting very cranky. They said, ‘No, you didn’t see it. You didn’t see anything. You know nothing.’
“I spoke to the highest-ranking officer there, a tactic commander in the Chilean Navy: ‘Are we under arrest or what?’ He said, ‘No you are not.’ “
Asked why they were there, the Chilean officer replied, ‘You are under orders. These people just want to talk to you, to put you on the right track.”
My informant claimed, “While the men never asked us to go through the story in detail, they knew what had happened by the questions they asked. They also had the radar-plot blueprint.” They were more interested in securing his silence than in getting information about the event from him.
For two days the harassment continued. “Every two hours,” the informant said, “this guy would come up. ‘What do you think now?’ he’d say… We had arguments. They didn’t have any right to do what they were doing.”
My informant threatened to complain when he got out. He was told that if he did so, that would be the end of him. He did not see the other witnesses at any point during the two day interrogation. He was not allowed to sleep until he signed a document. Finally, after he had done so, he was put in a jeep and driven to another location. One week later he was transferred unexpectedly from destroyer duty. He never saw the others again.
Discussion
As I listened to this man tell his story, I was struck with the passion of his tone. If he was making this up, he was an excellent actor.
His claim that he had been placed in confinement following the sighting was especially interesting to me. In fact, the account sounds exactly like something out of the NBC-television movie The Disappearance of Flight 412, said to have been based on the real life experience of one of the scriptwriters, Neal B. Burger. Burger’s experience supposedly took place in 1951. (My informant claimed not to have seen the movie.) A similar story, involving a U.S. Navy man who allegedly was subjected to similar pressures in Panama in 1973, is recounted in Fawcett and Greenwood’s Clear Intent (1984).

Navy ship HMAS Hobart hit during Vietnam UFO encounter?

Date: June 15, 1968
Location: DMZ, Viet Nam

HMAS HOBART HIT DURING VIETNAM UFO ENCOUNTER?
Story by Jon Wyatt
In June 1968 Australia was dismayed by the news that the guided-missile destroyer HMAS Hobart had been badly damaged by ‘friendly fire’ in Vietnam: Two crew died and seven were wounded during the USAF attack.
Officially, the Hobart ‘Incident’ occurred during a night operation against ‘enemy helicopters’ – but was it in reality a UFO story?
The evidence is very intriguing, and to find out why let’s go to the beginning.
On Friday, 15 June 1968, Allied forward spotters along the eastern part of the Demilitarised Zone, a 9.6km wide strip separating North and South Vietnam, reported seeing about 30 strange slow-moving ‘lights’ in the night sky. At the time the belief was these were lumbering North Vietnamese Russian-built M-14 ‘Hound’ helicopters ferrying men and materiel over the border.
After the sightings, Allied Command, fearing another Tet Offensive-style build-up, rushed more anti-aircraft guns to the border, and placed Phantom fighter-bombers at Danang Air Base on standby, and it also asked available Allied warships to patrol the DMZ coast. HMAS Hobart II one of those warships that responded.
That night, the forward spotters along the eastern DMZ again reported the ‘enemy helicopters’ had re-appeared, and the Allied forces sprang into action.
Details of the subsequent aerial ‘melee’ remain sketchy, but it is known several US 7th Air Force Phantom fighter-bombers soon arrived on the scene and began firing on the intruders; and were supported by anti-aircraft ground fire. During the Allied attack the ‘enemy helicopters’ were seen to move down the east coast and then out to the sea – and there things went terribly wrong.
A US Navy Board of Inquiry, which investigated the Hobart ‘incident’ for the Australian government, found shortcomings of the Phantom’s radar system were partly to blame: to stop big targets flooding the radarscope the radar had a cut-off mechanism, so the returns from a warship and a slow moving low flying helicopter could appear similar on-screen.
After the ‘lights’ fled seaward, the first ‘friendly fire’ incident occurred shortly after midnight when the US Navy swift boat PCF-19 was sunk by three air-to-air missiles while patrolling some kilometres south of the DMZ. Five of the seven crew died (more about this later).
At about 3.30am, the Hobart was patrolling (blacked-out and maintaining radio silence) near Tiger Island, about 20kms off Cap Lay, when her radar room detected a fast, in-coming aircraft. The IFF (Identication Friend of Foe) system indicated it was ‘friendly’ and the ship was attempting to establish further identity when a Sparrow air-to-air missile struck her amidships on the starboard (right) side. The missile penetrated the alluminum hull and exploded killing Ordinary Seaman R J Butterworth and wounding two others.
While the crew was rushing to Action Stations, two more air-to-air missiles penetrated the starboard side and killed Chief Electrician Hunt and wounded several others – and narrowly missed a magazine. Hobart fired five rounds from a deckgun, but the swept-winged attacker escaped.
During the DMZ ‘lights’ operation, the guided-missile destroyer USS Edson, the guided-missile cruiser USS Boston, the US Coast Guard cutter Point Dume, and the USS PCF-19 also came under ‘friendly fire’ , but fortunately without causing more casualties.
Eventually, the Phantom pilots involved in the operation that night and early morning, were recalled and grounded.
After daybreak, US helicopters airlifted the wounded Australian sailors to Danang and the damaged Hobart went to Subic Bay, Philippines, for repairs and was off the scene for five weeks – and that night DMZ ‘lights’ returned.
Whatever the ‘lights’ actually were remains a subject of conjecture, but it appears they were sighted for some weeks and went unchallenged. A week after the Hobart ‘incident’ the Melbourne Sun noted: “sightings were reported by radarmen in Quang Tri Province about five miles [eight kms] below the border zone. It was the sixth time since last Saturday that such sightings have been reported … US command has ordered its fighter-bombers and artillery to withhold fire not wanting a repeat of the incidents in which the Allied ships were fired upon.”
Also adding further to the mystery, no wreckage of downed enemy choppers was found. In August 1968 the Royal Australian Navy News confirmed: “No physical evidence of helicopters destroyed has been discovered in the area of activity nor has extensive reconnaissance produced any evidence of enemy helicopter operations in or near the DMZ”.
In 1996 I interviewed the Hobart’s skipper, the late Ken Shands, and he also said, “Neither before nor after the incident … was there any report by any of the ships of a helicopter being there [around Tiger Island]. Now having said that, the captain of one of the American ships told me later at Subic Bay that he thought there were helicopters there, but the fact is he didn’t report, and if he believed there was a helicopter … it was his duty to report it at the time, but there was no report.”
So what appeared over the DMZ that sparked the mission that saw Hobart hit?
The events of that night have doubtless raised much discussion – it was the RAN’s costliest day of the entire war – and Australian navy history books mention ‘unusual atmospheric conditions over the DMZ’, ‘insect swarms’ or ‘bird flocks’ as possible sources of the sightings, but were they unidentified flying objects?
General George S Brown (1918-1978) was commander of the 7th US Air Force and deputy commander for Air Operations, Military Assistance Command Vietnam from 1968 to 1970 – and so was in command of the Phantoms involved in the snafu. In later years he rose to chair the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington. In 1973, he fronted a Chicago media conference held to discuss the North American UFO flap of that year, and while airing his views on UFOs at the conference he said:
“I don’t know whether this story has ever been told or not [but UFOs plagued us in Vietnam]. They weren’t called UFOs they were called enemy helicopters, and they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ in the early summer of ’68, and this resulted in quite a battle. And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer [Hobart] took a hit … there was no enemy at all involved but we always reacted. Always after dark. The same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in ’69”.
George Filer, today Director of the Mutual UFO Network Eastern, USA, served as a USAF intelligence officer under General Brown during the Vietnam conflict, and he has also said, “In 1968, I briefed General Brown the USAF Chief of Staff most mornings on the intelligence situation in Vietnam… a lot of times we’d get UFO reports over the DMZ”.
The late Bill Cooper served as a patrol-boat captain in Vietnam from 1967 to 1969, and during a talk at the 1989 Los Angeles UFO conference he said:
“After about five months I was sent up north to the DMZ, to a place called Qua Vieaf [perhaps Qua Viet] on the Tacan [sic] river …. It was while there that I discovered that there was a tremendous amount of UFO and alien activity in Vietnam. It was always reported in official messages as ‘enemy helicopters’. Now any of you who know anything about the Vietnam war know that the North Vietnamese did not have any helicopters especially after our first couple of air raids into North Vietnam [during 1965]. Even if they had, they would not have been so foolish as to bring them over the DMZ, because that would have ensured their demise.”
Cooper later recanted his belief in an alien presence and instead insisted UFOs are “technology originally developed by the Germans in their secret weapons programs during WW-II, by geniuses like Nikola Tesla and many others”. However the mystery of 1968 DMZ ‘lights’ marched on, and the following is from another American patrol boat crew member.
Jim Steffes, ENC, USN Retired, served on the patrol boat PCF-12 on the night of the Hobart ‘incident’, and he confirms strange goings-on in the sky. In his article ‘The sinking of PCF-19 as seen from PCF-12’, he states the PCF-12 met the ill-fated PCF-19 at sea that night to fix the PCF-19’s radar. At approximately 0030 hours the PCF-12 received a ‘flash traffic’ that PCF-19, the first ‘friendly fire’ target, had disappeared in a flash of light. The PCF-12 reached the scene as Point Dume was pulling the two badly wounded survivors aboard. As PCF-12 searched in vain for more survivors, she found she had company.
As he and the crew peered into the darkness, the moon sometimes behind clouds, “we spotted two aircraft ‘hovering’ on our port and starboard beams. They were about 300 yards away and 100 feet above the water. As the boat swung around to put the aircraft ahead and astern of PCF-12, I could hear Mr. Snyder [the Officer In Charge] requesting air support and identification of these helos. The answer from the beach was ‘no friendly aircraft in the area, have contacts near you on radar and starlight scope’.
Steffes says he saw one ‘helo’ in the moonlight and believed “It had a rounded front like an observation helo and it looked like two crewman sitting side by side”. Then, “I watched as tracers began to come toward us as this helo opened fire. The guns were from the nose of the helo. Our guns opened up and I ran back to my position as the loader on the after gun. We heard a crash of glass and a splash as one of the helos hit the water, the other helo broke contact and left the area.”
Steffes says for the next two and one half hours the PCF-12 played cat and mouse with one or more helos, opening fire whenever they moved in. He also observed the Point Dume firing tracers at blinking lights moving around her in the air. All the radios were crackling constantly as friendlies were checked out. “The result was no friendlies, these had to be North Vietnamese.”
Then, three and a half hours later, at about 3:30am, military jets roared overhead and after they acknowledged the PCF-19’s position, he soon heard explosions and gunfire to the north (the Hobart ‘incident’?). “As dawn broke, we could only see the shoreline and the Point Dume.”
Steffes concluded: “We continued to monitor and track these ‘lights’ for several weeks after this up until September … I know what the ‘official story’ is, but this is mine as true and complete as I can remember.”
Jim Steffes’ story of course raise many fascinating questions including:
Did the PCF-12 crew fall victim to ‘cultural tracking’: aliens using their advanced technology to mimick our technology to interface with humans?
If the lights were North Vietnamese observer helicopters? why did they fly around for hours with their lights on, why weren’t they shot down, and why was no ‘helo’ wreckage ever retrieved?
Many Ufologists believe alien visitors havelong been studying human wars; and this may have been the case in 1968.
Paranormal Postscript:
Hobart served out three tours of duty in Vietnam, however it seems after 1968 she had an extra crewman.
A Signalman, who served on the ship during the 1990s, says that one morning at 4am when the warship was approaching Hobart, Tas., he was climbing a flex ladder to the flag deck when he felt the ladder move below him, then felt “something actually walk past/through me on the ladder”. Then, when he reached the flag deck and entered the Signalmans Shelter, he sensed “someone in there with me and could hear them breathing as though they had been running or working hard”.
The Signalman later learnt from the Chief Coxswain, a 15-year veteran, that “a Leading Seaman Signalman” had been killed while scaling the ladder to action stations in 1968: “Apparently, the ship took a missile hit and a piece of shrapnel took this poor man’s head clean off his shoulders”.
During the late 1990s when the Signalman was re-posted to the ship, he sent a young sailor up the ladder to ‘test the waters’, and the bloke also came down shaking.
The “Green Ghost”, as the ship was also affectionately known, was de-commissioned in May 2000, and scuttled at Yankalilla Bay, south of Adelaide, in late 2002, where she is now a scuba-dive spot.

The Secret KGB UFO Files, The Russian Crash of 1969

The details of a Russian Crash on or about 1969 are sketchy and somewhat suspect. This case comes from the so-called “Secret KGB Files,” which were reportedly smuggled out of the former Soviet Union. Reportedly, $10,000 was paid for the information. The details of these secret files were first offered to the general public on 9-13-98 as part of a TNT special titled “The Secret UFO Files of the KGB.” The show featured extraordinary film and still photographs of the UFO recovery, and also a portion of autopsy film on part of an alien body.

The event itself, according to the files, occurred in the state of Sverdlovsky, which was formerly Yekatrinburg of the USSR. The crash story follows a familiar pattern normally associated with this type of report. The fiery crash of an unknown object occurred in March 1969. The site was secured by the Russian military, and one dead alien was found in the wreckage. The remains of the craft and alien were brought to a secure location, and the alien body was autopsied. Both still and moving pictures were taken of the craft, its retrieval, and the alien autopsy. The autopsy shows only an alien torso and arm. From the size of the body parts, the alien would have been an extremely small being.

The TNT special features Roger Moore, veteran actor and former James Bond, who discusses other UFO events, along with interviews with UFO experts, CIA agents, and other film. Probably the most notable footage is from MIG gun cameras of confrontations with UFOs. There have been only a few still frames of this footage in America, and I have not been able as of this writing, 11-01-2002, to obtain the videos. The show itself is mediocre, and its only redeeming quality is the presentation of the UFO crash story. Supposedly, the crash story was validated by secret KGB documents.

The footage at the crash site does seem to be authentic at least on several points. The truck in the film is a circa 1950 model ZIS151, which has not been used by the military for quite some time, and the truck would have been difficult to find to stage a hoax with. Other elements of the film do not exhibit any obvious signs of a hoax, as to the movement of the soldiers, the timing of the film as to shadows, and the UFO itself.

There are also several documents shown to verify the event itself, and an eyewitness to the event who swears that the recovery mission did occur. The footage of the autopsy film shows personnel without caps and gowns, which seemed odd to me at first, but after some research I found that this was commonplace for that era in Russia.
The furnishings in the room are acceptable, and in Russia have probably not changed much today. Three men in their 20’s and 30’s are performing the procedure, and one woman is taking notes. The note taker is identified as KGB stenographer O. A. Pshonikina. The alien’s torso and arm are lying together on the table as the autopsy is performed, and there are documents shown to support the autopsy.

Although the USA-Russia relationship is much improved over a few years ago, it still lacks. Any information received is subject to translation, and often times there are problems with interpretation. It is sad there is not more cooperation between the two countries. The case of the 1969 retrieval and autopsy are difficult to assess. Until more information is uncovered, it will remain unsubstantiated.

 ADDITIVE 

‘For nearly fifty years, the secrecy apparatus within the United States government has kept from the public UFO and alien information, we have contact with alien cultures’. He went on to say ‘the suppression of UFO and other extraterrestrial intelligence information for at least forty-seven years, is probably being orchestrated by an elite band of men in the CIA, NSA, NSS, DIA and their like. This small group appears able to keep these already hard-to-believe secrets very well’.

Statements from various NASA sources, including Maurice Chatelain reveal that all astronauts are briefed and debriefed, before and after every mission, and are warned not to discuss their encounters in public. Rumors of astronauts being ‘threatened’, ‘going mad’, or even ‘losing their lives’ on their return to Earth, abound.
According to Sgt Major Robert Dean, who carried the highest security clearance there is while serving at SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) in the 1960’s, the US intelligence community is in possession of a top-secret dossier entitled The Assessment, detailing the history of extraterrestrial visitation, and an assessment of their purposes for visiting our planet. For the past twenty years Sgt Major Dean had fought to make this information public knowledge.

Former NASA photographic technician, Donna Tietze said in an interview with a radio station in 1995 ‘The job of a co-worker in a restricted area was to airbrush out any anomalies found on the Moon photos’. The NASA Library is currently in possession of literally millions of photographs, plus an impressive catalogue of transmission tapes and videotapes documenting the presence of UFOs. The Clementine Probe alone sent back 1.6 million photographic images in 1994.

When President Eisenhower  created NASA on October 1st, 1958, it was to ‘coordinate national space activities’ and to take ‘full advantage of the military potential of space’, and yet at the same time was to ‘administer the civilian space program’.

 
NASA Astronaut Cooper denies seeing UFO in orbit – But Tells of His Dealings With Secret UFO Film


Pioneering astronaut L. Gordon Cooper denies being the first astronaut to see a UFO while in orbit, but stands by his reports of a strange encounter over Germany in the 1950s.Cooper flatly denied the long-standing claim, repeated over the years by various authors including UFOlogical saints J. Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallee, that he saw a greenish object with a red tail move past his Mercury 9 spacecraft in 1963.

“No, somebody made a lot of money selling lies on that one,” Cooper, the sixth American in space, told Art Bell on the syndicated “Coast to Coast” talk radio show recently. “It was totally untrue, sorry to say.” However, the retired air force colonel, who once lectured the United Nations on the reality of UFOs, still holds an “unshakable” belief in extraterrestrial intelligence, thanks largely to personal experience. “On one occasion, I saw some strange vehicles that we assumed were UFOs,” he told Bell.

In the encounter, which took place over Germany in the early 1950s, Cooper saw “flights of fighters flying by in the same sort of formation we flew, moving east to west.” The U.S. Air Force base scrambled its own pilots, including Cooper, who remembers the objects as looking “just like saucers — they were metallic looking, but we couldn’t really get close enough to see more than that. You couldn’t see any wings on them.”

At the time, Cooper entertained the possibility that the craft might be a new Soviet design, but “looking back now,” he suspects “it was some kind of extraterrestrial vehicle.”

He also stood by his belief that he saw a UFO land at Edwards Air Force Base in California in 1957. Although Cooper had been filming the base with a camera crew at the time, the film, which he handed over to a high-ranking officer from Washington, has never emerged.
Area 51 and the lost Gemini photographs
After another round of filming — this time in orbit aboard Gemini 5 — Cooper ran into trouble with the authorities when they confiscated film he took from space. However, in contrast to UFO legend, this film did not contain photographic proof of an alien encounter.Instead, he had ran afoul of the authorities for taking pictures of the “top secret” Nevada military base known familiarly as “Area 51“. “I found out fairly recently that one of the reasons it got confiscated was I had inadvertently … overflown Area 51,” while taking test photos, he said.

Cooper had no comment on the Great Face on Mars. “That’s one of the reasons you need to send a manned mission to Mars, to study that stuff closer,” he told Bell, gently criticizing today’s NASA and recent presidential administrations for lacking the “bravery” to build on previous generations’ space advances.

 UPDATE
In recently published memoirs “Leap of Faith: An Astronaut’s Journey into the Unknown”, by USAF Colonel L. Gordon Cooper (Ret.) recounts how he chased UFOs over Germany in his F-86. Following this experience, Cooper was very open minded about UFOs.

He writes,

“I knew an Air Force master sergeant assigned to a team that received an emergency call-out from Washington D.C., to the Pacific southwest (not Roswell.) He told me they reached a canyon and found a wreckage at the site. According to his friend — and I had been around him enough to consider him a reliable guy — a metallic disk-shaped object had crashed, and sitting atop the wreckage were two very human-looking fellows in flight suits, waving at them. They were hustled away, and the sergeant never found out who they were or what happened to them.”

As a captain stationed at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., on May 3, 1957, he became aware that a metallic, saucer-shaped craft had landed (silently) sometime after 8:00 a.m. on base property. He alleges that the event was filmed by a startled technical film crew on assignment 50 yards away, the craft zooming out of sight when the photographers tried to approach it for a better camera shot. Cooper writes that, upon learning of the incident, he telephoned appropriate Pentagon officials, who ordered him to have all the film developed (but not printed) and to ship it immediately to the Pentagon. He adds that, before complying, he chose to peek at some of the negatives, which confirmed the existence of the “saucer” as described to him by the film crew. Cooper notes that he heard nothing more about the film or the results of any investigation.
After reading the above information, I must ask you this…

  • If NASA was formed as a ‘civilian space agency’, why were so many NASA programs funded by the US Defense Department?
  • Why were all astronauts subjected to US military security regulations?
  • Why were all video and photographic evidence screened by the National Security Agency?
  • Why were all the radio communications screened by the National Security Agency?
  • After spending millions of taxpayers’ dollars planning a ‘Moon City’, why has the Moon not been visited by NASA since 1973?
  • Why are some of NASA’s top photographic technicians employed to ‘airbrush out’ anomalies caught on film?
  • Why are astronauts and other NASA employees threatened with long jail sentences if they ‘speak out’ about what was really discovered out there in space?
  • Do you realize that no information, either photographic or otherwise, reaches the public domain until it has been thoroughly scrutinized and sanitized by the US intelligence community, and has been in effect since the space program began?.
  • Did you know that the main debates before the ‘official’ Moon landings were regarding mining and mineral rights?

Bearing in mind that the rich resources of titanium, aluminium, uranium, helium 3, and god knows what else, were found on the Moon. Do you really think that the US would have then told the rest of the world to come on up and take a share?

Buzz Aldrin has said in his book, ‘Men From Earth’

‘Another exciting energy resource on the moon is… an ample supply of the isotope Helium-3 (HE-3), which is very rare on Earth but has been deposited on the lunar surface over billions of years by the solar wind. It is estimated that at least a million tons of He-3 are readily recoverable from the regolith formations where lunar solar power stations would be practical.

This He-3 offers a key to safe, practical nuclear fusion energy on Earth. It is estimated that a single ton of He-3 delivered to Earth would be worth at least $
