One of the most fascinating aspects of the phenomenon is the apparent electromagnetic effects it has on aircraft, automobiles and power grids. One of the most interesting and well documented events was from Levellend, Texas, USA. (Read About It Here).
I came across another case from the well-respected Mutual UFO Network (MUFON)
I’m posting this case because the phenomenon was seen by many residents from Jackson, Mississippi in 1978 and the electrical disturbances on the automobiles and houses in the neighborhood.
A Mississippi witness recalls an extraordinary encounter with three UAPs that moved slowly along a Jackson street at 100 feet with multiple observers, according to testimony in Case 61533 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The events unfolded along Warner Avenue about 6:30 p.m. on October 15, 1978, as the witness was delivering newspapers with his mother and sister.
“I had a paper route and delivered the Jackson Daily News, an evening paper in Jackson, MS,” the witness stated. “I had approximately 150 houses on my route so my father would normally take me on my route. But it was volleyball season and my father taught math, history, and coached volleyball at a local high school, so during volleyball season he usually got home too late to take me on the route so my mother had to take me.”
The witness was a paperboy back in 1978 when multiple UAPs flew slowly over his neighborhood. Pictured: The intersection in Jackson, MS, where the object was seen in 1978. (Credit: Google)
The witnesses’ mother did not like to be the driver because she had recently purchased a new Buick Limited.
“I paid my older sister to fold and rubber band the papers for me and when my mother took me on the route my sister had to throw the left side and I threw the right side. Anyone with a paper route knows it’s really difficult to throw papers with a new driver because they don’t know which houses to slow down for. I was 13 and my sister was 14 at the time.”
The group had turned onto Warner Avenue from Utah Street. The witness had to get out of the vehicle because his papers were landing on the wrong lawns.
“Right before I got out of the car my mother’s radio went to static. I threw the five houses on foot and was walking back to the car when I noticed everyone on the street starting to come outside. They were asking each other who had power – apparently power for that entire street had went off.”
The witness then noticed residents of the street pointing into the sky.
“Then about 10 houses down from the yard I was walking through I noticed two elderly women pointing up in the sky at something. I looked briefly at what they were pointing at and I just dismissed what I say as a low Goodyear Blimp flying with the advertisement lights on the side. The Goodyear Blimp was a common site in Jackson during that time. I climbed through the window of the backseat to get into the car because if I opened the door all the papers would fall out of the car. But my mother’s car had shut off and would not crank back up.”
The witness got out of the car again and asked his mother to pop the hood to check the battery.
“That’s when I noticed every single car on the street that was running had stalled. There were now more neighbors outside pointing up at the objects and I looked again and it was not about 100 feet away from us heading toward us and only about 100 feet above the ground. And instead of it being one large blimp like I originally thought, I could now see that there were three separate objects, one behind the other about 50 feet apart in a single line moving very slowly down Warner Avenue.”
The witness first thought the UAPs were one object and possibly the Goodyear blimp. Pictured: The street in Jackson, MS, where the object was seen in 1978. (Credit: Google)
The witness described the three objects.
“The first one was shaped like a pentagon and was gun-metal black and had blue lights around its perimeter with a pulsating red light in the middle. This object was so close I could not see the top of it. It shined a very bright, intense white light on one of the houses and then walked the light down towards our car, like a police helicopter does…but it was totally silent. This thing was so close to me I could have it with a tennis ball.
“The one behind it was also shaped like a trapezoid and I could see the second ‘story’ or layer of this craft and there was a white section that looked like windows and I could see beings moving through this section. It had orange and green lights on its perimeter but I don’t remember if it had a pulsating red center light like the first one.
“The first one was so close to me I could see patterns in fixtures in its underbelly. The second one did not shine a light down like the first one did until it passed over our car and was a good 100 yards away. The second object appeared to be jet black.
“The third object was shaped more like a diamond and it had blue and green and white lights and this object was actually ‘tumbling’ slowly or rotating slowly on its horizontal axis. It was seemed to have a jet black surface as opposed to gun-metal like the first one.
“Behind the third object was a small red ball of light moving along with the three objects. It took me a couple of minutes before I realized that these objects were not some kind of quiet airplane or some kind of new blimp with a new shape.”
The objects seemed to be in no hurry to move away.
“These three objects were in no hurry whatsoever and almost seemed to be ‘parading’ for us. They went about two-thirds of the way down Warner Avenue and then began a very slow ascent up and to the right in the direction of the full moon. Once the objects were approximately a mile or two away, all the power came back on the street and my mother’s cars headlights came back on and she restarted the car. These objects were in view for 20 to 30 minutes and in no hurry whatsoever.”
The entire event lasted between 20 and 30 minutes.
Family members rarely spoke about the events of that October day.
Jackson is the capital of Mississippi, with a population today of 173,514.

On occasion I will post interesting UAP activities from one of the worlds largest and most professional UAP research organizations. MUFON (Mutual UFO Network). Here is a fascinating case from MUFON’s “Sighting Of The Month”.
Although this incident occurred in 1967, I decided it was worthy to print because of the number of competent, multiple U.S. Air Force military witnesses coupled with two separate radar installations including three Marine F-4 Phantoms in pursuit of the bogeys. The UAPs were tracked at an astonishing 5000 mph!
UAPSIGHTING OF THE MONTH
On or about March 31, 1967 two US Military Air Defense Radar Operators tracked a total of eight unidentified targets over coastal areas of southern Florida. The operators and radar stations were separated by approximately 100 miles. These two distinct radar sites were located at Homestead AFB, Florida and the Army Air Defense Battery on Key West, Florida. The radar tracking and observation lasted for approximately four hours. Two separate UAP flight areas were identified, one off of the east coast near Miami, Florida (Flight Area A) and the second just south of the Florida mainland and north of Key West, Florida (Flight Area B).
The only visual object description was from a member of the Army Air Defense launch crew who commented the one object was moving so fast it was like a meteor, but was flying level. Based on the radar return the primary witness estimated the size of one UAP as between 31 and 100 feet.
DF stated; It was late March 1967. I was a buck Sergeant In the United States Air Force. I was stationed at the 644th Radar Squadron, Richmond Air Force Station, Florida. The radar squadron was just north of U.S. Highway 1 in Miami, Florida. I was working a twelve hour shift from 7pm To 7am. I was speaking with WS about 10pm, when I received a priority telephone call from NORAD Headquarters. They advised that four unidentified aircraft had been picked up on Canadian radar passing over mid Canada and heading south along the east coast of the United States at a very high rate of speed.
I notified the duty officer and waited for my radar to paint the four unidentified aircraft. The radar showed four targets coming into range at approximately 5000 mph and decelerating to approximately 1500 mph. I had WS on my telephone and advised him as the situation developed. Bill advised that he had the four aircraft on his radar. We both watched the aircraft flying grid patterns for approximately four hours. At approximately 2am, Bill told me that one of the aircraft had broken formation and was flying toward his site. I lost contact with Bill a few moments later.
WS stated; it was late March of 1967. I was in the army at that time, and assigned to an air defense center in Key West, Florida. I spent many of my nights in a radar control center watching the various screens. My second cousin was also in the scope dope business. He was in the Air Force at the time and worked in a radar station in Homestead, Florida, just outside Miami.
We spent many an evening conversing on the air defense net, although our conversations rarely had anything to do with air defense. My cousin called me one night on the net and advised me that something unbelievable was happening in South Florida. He opened the net so I could monitor the traffic regarding the incident taking place. I pulled my headset to my ears as I listed to various NORAD stations tracking a UAP just off the coast of Miami.
At the time, Homestead was a SAC base, and any such traffic was a great concern to the Air Force. Although I was about 100 miles from the target under discussion, I had the capability to observe activity in the area with my own radar. I had only to take it off standby. As I was bringing up my antenna, the chatter continued, and referred to three more objects in the sky near Miami. It was also noted that civilian observers had now sighted the objects and the sighting was being reported on local commercial radio.
As my scope came up the first thing I noticed were three Marine fighters departing Boca Chica Naval Air Station, heading north. The UAPs were clearly visible just southeast of Miami. They appeared to be moving just East of North, skirting the Florida Coast. They then turned sharply west, crossing the keys near Everglades National Park on the south tip of the Florida mainland. It only took the Phantoms a few minutes to reach the area of the bogies.
I have no idea if the pilots sighted the targets visually, or electronically. The air channel was not part of the NORAD net. As the phantoms approached the targets they disappeared off the scope. Now there is only one way to disappear when being observed by a PAR (Pulse Acquisition Radar). You must go straight up, or straight down. This cat and mouse game went on all night. There is much too much to type in this report.
Visual observations in Miami included the observation of one large object and three small. This I cannot verify, although I imagine the Miami Herald would have some record of it. To me, they appeared to be flying a search pattern. The way the Coast Guard would search in grids. After about four hours one of the unknowns began moving south directly towards my location. The target was really moving, probably twice the speed of anything I had ever tracked, around 1100 miles an hour. This would provide me with an excellent opportunity to lock onto the target with a different type of radar. This other type of radar, which I probably should not identify, has the capability of bringing back actual sounds of the target. Turbo prop, jet engines, or the thud of rotary aircraft could clearly be heard with this system.
As the target approached it decelerated but was still supersonic. I brought the targeting radar into alignment with it and brought the unit on-line. For a short moment, a very short moment, I could hear a high-pitched whine, similar to a jet engine, but smoother and much higher pitch. At this point the target obviously detected my lock and hit my sight with some type of Electronic Counter Measure. It appeared to reverse the polarity of every piece of equipment on the sight, although I was never able to verify that.
Needless to say this caused an instant shut down of the system and erased a great many taxpayer dollars. As I was exiting the control center the launch crew stated that they had seen the object pass over. It was moving so fast that one of the guys swore it was a meteor, but was flying level. When last seen the object was headed south towards Cuba. It was many years later that I read newspaper articles about a two-week flap in the Miami area. I would also later learn about a Cuban MIG21 that was allegedly destroyed during an encounter with a UAP in March 1967.
The characteristics of the object do not match known aircraft. According to the one Army launch crew member it had an anomalous appearance, like a meteor that was flying a level course. On radar, the objects indicated anomalous movements; broken or interrupted trajectories, and apparition of physical-spatial incongruities; disappearing and reappearing on radar. At least one of the objects demonstrated supersonic speed without producing a sonic boom.
This is a historical case that occurred approximately 47 years ago. The primary witness is a MUFON Field Investigator and he has investigated this case over a several year period.
Checked MUFON CMS database for the months of March and April 1967, no other cases found in Florida.
Checked NICAP database and found 4 Florida cases, 1 case may be related to this case. It was in March 1967, however a specific date and time were not identified. It is the case involving a Cuban Mig-21 destroyed while engaging an unknown target over NE Cuba. Some investigative reports suggest the unknown was an A-12 or SR-71 American Spy Plane.
Note, if memory serves, The SR-71 is a recon airplane without armaments. My words.
Checked NUFORC database and found 1 Florida case from April 01, 1967 that we believe is related. This case was reported in June 2005, but the event date was listed as approximately April 1, 1967 and the location was at the Flamingo Campgrounds near Homestead, Florida. The description of the event has similarities with observations made by the radar operators. The location also matches.
Checked meteor/fireball database and did not find any that matched location and date for this case.
Several newspaper articles were discovered that refer to sightings within a few weeks of this case, however the Air Force determined the many witnesses, three teachers and several students from the Crestview School in Opalocka, Florida, were observing a Coast Guard Helicopter engaged in training maneuvers at an airport approximately 3 miles from their location. The witnesses did not agree with this assessment. The date, time, and objects movements as well as colors seem to match the primary witness’s description of the event. All was documented in the local newspapers.
Witnesses are credible, at the time of the event they were US Military radar operators.
NUFORC Case Posted 6/20/2005 and reported 6/2/2005 location was Homestead, Florida and event date was approximately 4/01/1967. USAF Investigation and Findings document number 1003764 dated 4 May 1967, event date April 7, 1967. Crestview School daytime UAP sightings.
Our conclusion for these objects is UNKNOWN-UAV. They do not match the capabilities of known military or commercial aircraft from that time period.
This site does not advocate the UFO/Alien conjecture regarding UAP’s as found all over the Internet by self-proclaimed experts. This elusive global Enigma is not understood by our current science, technology, human comprehension and appears to defy our laws of physics…and even after decades of gathering evidence and research remains unsolved.
Our science and technology simply have not caught up with it yet.
I am dedicated to the examination and analysis, with evidence, of the UAP/UFO Phenomenon. My purpose is to promote serious scientific interest in UAP/UFO Reality for Scientists, Academics, Investigators, and most importantly, the General Public. T. Blank
According to a report by TheUnited Nations, since 1947 more than 150 million people have been witnesses to UAPActivities throughout the world. More than 20,000 of those has been documented landings!
In Canada, 10% of the population have witnessed Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, including myself. According to MUFON (Mutual UFONetwork), approximately, 70,000UAP Reports are filed every year globally. It is estimated that only one out of ten witnesses actually file a report.
Do the math.
A Roper poll conducted in the United States reported that 70% of the U.S. population believes that the government is not telling the public everything it knows about UAPs.
I surmise governments stopped funding UAP Research, publicly anyway, because the phenomenon appears to display some unknown, cutting edge, High Technology, Energy or even some Unbeknownst Forms Of Life, which seems to be Beyond Our Technology And Human Comprehension.
UAPs are tracked coming and going in our airspace at will, and there is absolutely no power on Earth that can do anything about these Worldwide Intrusions.
If this knowledge were in the public domain, it would Destabilise Our Civilisation, Undermine The Petrodollar, compromising the fossil fuelled, Global Financial Infrastructure. Revolutionizing, Or Totally Metamorphosing Our World As We Know It Today!
I get that!
3.2 Minute Video Introduction
“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” Max Planck, Theoretical Physicist, Scientific Autobiography
“We are dealing with a yet unrecognised level of consciousness, independent of man but closely linked to the earth…. I do not believe anymore that UFOs are simply the spacecraft of some race of extraterrestrial visitors. This notion is too simplistic to explain their appearance, the frequency of their manifestations through recorded history, and the structure of the information exchanged with them during contact.” Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception.” Dr. Jacques Vallée – Passport to Magonia
“When the long-awaited solution to the UFO problem comes, I believe that it will prove to be not merely the next small step in the march of science, but a mighty and totally unexpected quantum leap.” Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Astronomer, Scientific Consultant – U.S. Air Force “Project Blue Book”
“I would not spend one further moment on the subject of UFOs if I didn’t seriously feel that the UFO phenomenon is real and that efforts to investigate and understand it, and eventually to solve it, could have a profound effect – perhaps even be the springboard to mankind’s outlook on the universe.” Dr. J. Allen Hynek – The Hynek UFO Report
“Mr. Chairman, there exists today a world-wide phenomenon… indeed if it were not world-wide I should not be addressing you and these representatives from many parts of the world. There exists a global phenomenon the scope and extent of which is not generally recognised. It is a phenomenon so strange and foreign to our daily terrestrial mode of thought that it is frequently met by ridicule and derision by persons and organisations unacquainted with the facts… I refer, of course, to the phenomenon of UFOs… Unidentified Flying Objects… which I should like to define here simply as “any aerial or surface sighting, or instrumental recording (radar, images, etc) which remains unexplained by conventional methods even after competent examination by qualified persons.” Dr. J. Allen Hynek addressed the United Nations on the subject of UAPs on October 27th, 1978.

Hello world. I feel it’s my duty as a human being and fellow citizen to share my experience with “We The Sheeple”, regardless of the consequences for speaking out. Hopefully mainstream scientists will also take this seriously as it would be helpful when all of humanity, will become aware of another, profound reality.
I had a life altering experience over 30 years ago around the late 70’s or early 80’s. I witnessed some kind of enormous, circular, Mysterious Aircraft with lights around the perimeter. I still remember it today as if it happened yesterday.
Every time when I used to tell my story, I would literally relive the whole experience. What I mean by “used to tell” is because I no longer bother. Nobody listens, nobody cares and most don’t believe it anyway.
On that note, I’m going to tell it for the last time on this, my first website. I’m just Joe citizen with an above average interest in science and nature, everything from Palaeontology, Biology, Archaeology to Astrobiology.
I’m not an author or a writer, just a one finger typer.
I’m absolutely convinced I had a glimpse of some kind of “craft” from another reality.
One that is invisible to us naturally or by design.
In the winter of the late 70s or early 80s, January perhaps, I just got off work at 9:30 P.M. from the auto dealership. I was a car salesman at the time. I started driving towards the city of Toronto, Canada, on the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) eastbound to meet some friends at a bar on the Esplanade (a street lined with nightclubs).
I was not under the influence of any drug or alcohol.
As I was driving, I noticed a string of lights slowly rotating counter-clockwise over the city of Toronto, at about the ten o’clock position from my point of view. This caught my eye because these formation of lights were very unusual. The lights were evidently in a circular pattern with about two-thirds visible as the other third rotated out of view.
Imagine a pie plate with about 25 lights around the circumference of it. As this “pie plate” would revolve, a third of these lights would be hidden from view as if they were obstructed by a solid body. It was at night so all I could see was these rotating string of lights, but they were definitely on a “fixed” platform as the lights were revolving in unison.
Although I’ve heard of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon and was curious, at that time in my life, I didn’t really give that much thought about them. I’ve always been interested in nature and especially about the universe. I’ve seen all kinds of aircraft and advertising blimps at night before. I drove taxi’s off and on for fifteen years on the night shift and have seen countless meteors, lightening, satellites, etc.
On two occasions I’ve even seen extremely bright, slow falling, green fireball meteors lighting up the ground, for a couple of seconds, as if it was daylight. I’ve read, in later years, were other witnesses reported green fireballs as Unidentified Flying Objects. I chuckled to myself thinking how easily “UFO believers” can be fooled by natural phenomenon.
Anyway, these circle of lights were slowly descending and approaching towards me (westbound), while I was driving about 115 kilometres per hour on the highway (eastbound). These lights were getting closer and closer as “we” approached each other. I recall thinking to myself that this must be some kind of advertising balloon and those lights were letters.
As I kept driving, I was paying more and more attention to this object because the closer it was getting, the more unusual it looked. I kept glancing at it, while driving, waiting until it was close enough to read what these letters were saying, still thinking it was some kind of advertising blimp. The closer it got, the more I looked at it.
Now at my nine o’clock position, the string of rotating lights appeared to bank left like an air plane would “turning right”. Actually, it wasn’t banking at all. It was dipping forward pointing towards the ground. At this point, I realised that these lights were not letters at all. They were all different shapes and sizes, yellowish white in colour.
Update – Here’s A Photograph Literally Identical To What I…We…Saw
During the time when this Strange Flying Object started to bank left, or I thought from my point of view, I was struggling with myself trying to understand whether this was a plane, blimp, or a balloon. It was flying too slow for a plane, yet, too fast for a blimp.
Also, it didn’t appear to be flying or floating. The best way I can describe its motion is that it looked like it was “sailing” in the sky, defying gravity, as if it was in its own, separate environment, outside our sphere of perception.
What’s interesting here is that the human brain tries to associate what the eyes are seeing, to something already seen or experienced before. That’s why I was at war with myself trying to decide whether this object was a plane, blimp or a balloon. Every time I resigned myself to what I must be witnessing, I jumped to another conclusion. This jumping from one conclusion to another occurred during the whole experience.
I was imagining all kinds of things.
For example, if it was a plane, the only way these lights could have been positioned was in a circle because this plane must have had some kind of supporting structure in a circle from wing tip to wing tip. This didn’t make any sense at all. I’ve seen advertising planes before. This was nothing like this. Not even close. Then I was trying to imagine a “Goodyear blimp” with these letters going across its side. This was nothing like it either.
So here I was, trying to drive and watch this object at the same time. As I was driving, I started to slow down because I kept looking at this circle of lights more than the road ahead of me. In retrospect, I don’t even know how I kept my car on the road because I was so awed by this display in the sky.
As the object kept dipping forward more and more, it eventually ended up totally perpendicular to the ground! The first thing that came to mind was a big Ferris wheel rotating in the sky. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! At this point I slowed down to about 50 KPH (30 miles an hour in a 60 MPH highway for my American friends) and put my four-way, flashing hazard lights on my car fearing that another car would crash into the back of me for going so slow on a 100 KPH highway.
As I was mesmerised by this strange Unidentifiable Aerial Object, a surge of adrenaline hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t realise how BIG this thing was. At first I thought it was the size of an air plane fairly close. IT WAS GIGANTIC! Absolutely ENORMOUS in size. At least twice the size of a football field, bigger than an aircraft carrier!
It must have been miles away. I don’t know what gave away its size. Maybe the reflections of light on the ground. The best way I can relate this sudden realisation is like one of those illusions most of us have seen. You know, when you look at a pixel drawing with an image you can’t see until you stare at it for a while? After a period of time, you make out the face of a woman or something like that? That’s kind of the transformation I experienced. At first I thought the object was the size of a large plane, than suddenly I REALLY saw it.
IT WAS HUGE!!!
I yelled out loud to myself, “Holey F**k, It’s Huge!!!”. I don’t F***ing believe it, it’s F***ing Huge!!!. I thought it was fairly close at first, then bang!, it was farther away and larger than my brain first comprehended it.
Speaking about this surge of adrenaline. Have you ever had a really close call in a car accident? When your heart rate skyrocket to about 180 beats per minute? That’s what I felt when I realised how Gargantuan this object was! I could actually feel my heart pounding like crazy. To be frank, that’s when it literally scared the hell out of me, when I realised how big it was.
At this point, I rolled down my window and pointed to this giant “Ferris wheel” in the sky to the other motorists, but it appeared no one seemed to notice as they screamed by me at regular highway speeds. I remember how cold it was when I rolled down my window. It was something like minus 30 Celsius below zero.
After, I don’t know how long, probably only a few seconds of rotating in this perpendicular position, this Unidentified Aerial Object started to climb and right itself and “sail” back to the direction it originally came from. I rolled up my window, turned off my hazard lights, and started to speed up to chase it. Still, it seemed other motorists didn’t notice this object. That still irks me to this day why nobody seemed to notice.
As I was approaching the city limits, this object was in its flat position again climbing over the city. Then, all of a sudden, the rotating lights turned off except for a red “aircraft like” blinking light (which I never noticed before). After a few seconds, the rotating lights turned on again. It was like in the movie “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind“. The lights just blasted on. Then after a few seconds they turned off again as it seemed to be over the city. Strange behaviour.
Now I was exiting off of the highway onto Spadina Rd. I lost track of these lights because of the tall buildings. When I was on the street where I was going, “Esplanade”, I saw a cop parked on the other side of the road writing a parking ticket. I stopped in the middle of the road and ran over to him. He was quite taken aback by my seemingly aggressive approach. I asked him, “how long have you been here?” I forgot what he said, but I asked, “did you see that big circle of lights flying in the sky? He said “no”.
After parking my car, I met my friends at the bar, “Bailey’s”, (Dave B. and Craig C.) and told them what happened, but they didn’t take me seriously as they’ve already had a few drinks and were more interested in the ladies then listening to my astonishing, wild experience. After sitting at the bar by myself for an hour or so I went home. I was living at my parent’s house at the time, temporarily, so when I got home around 11 P.M., I called the police.
I didn’t know who else to phone at the time.
They didn’t take me seriously of course so, after that, I phoned the Toronto International Airport and managed to get through to Air Traffic Control and asked them if they had anyone call in with a UFOreport. Nothing. So I called the police again and convinced them to take me seriously as I wanted to make a report. They told me they can send a couple of officers to my house.
As it was late and my parents were asleep, I told them I’d rather come to the station the next day to report. Next morning, when I contemplated going in I decided not to, fearing they would think I’m some kind of wacko UFO fanatic.
As the days went by, scanning the newspapers looking for a “UFO sighting” to no avail, I started doubting myself. I was trying to convince myself that perhaps I was somehow mistaken. Maybe it was something not out of the ordinary at all. Maybe it was a balloon or air plane of some kind. Maybe like thousands of others, I witnessed something that I misinterpreted for something else.
About a week or so later, on or about the tenth page of the Toronto Star or Toronto Sun, buried in the bottom right hand corner, there it was! A short article. “Dozens of Mississauga residents reported a UFO as big as a football field.” I don’t recall the whole article. “Finally” I said to myself. “I knew it was real”, “I knew I didn’t imagine this”. I’ll never, ever, doubt myself again, no matter how much ridicule I’ll be subjected to.
I have some regrets however. One is It didn’t occur to me at the time to contact the media instead of the police and the airport. My second regret is I wish I had others with me to have this one in a million experience. And most importantly, I wish I knew what I was witnessing right from the beginning so that I would have found a way to park my car and really pay attention to this strange, enormous “craft” sailing in the cold night sky.
So there you have it folks. I won a lottery of sorts. Don’t believe me? I don’t care. Still interested? Keep reading. Get Educated. Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon is real and worldwide. The evidence dictates that this phenomenon has been here since recorded history!
Now before, you the readers, pass judgment on me, please take the time to read what I have to say. I’m NOT a “UFO Believer” per say. In other words, I’m not a tin hat UFO fanatic who embraces this enigma as some kind of new age religion waiting for aliens from space to save mankind from himself. December 22, 2012 will just be another work day and life will keep going on. Yup, we still have to go to work and pay our bills, no need to stock up on water, weapons or Ensure.
As I stated at the beginning, I’m just Joe citizen with above average interest in science and nature, and especially about this vast, ancient Cosmos, who had a truly unbelievable experience which is extremely difficult to explain let alone believe. Hell, if someone were to tell me the same story, I would have a hard time believing it also.
I gave up “selling” my experience many years ago as it falls on deaf ears anyway. I’ve written to President Jimmy Carter (a witness), President Ronald Reagan (also a witness), George W. Bush and never received a response…as expected of course. Hell they’re just politicians, figureheads who come and go. What do they really know? It’s called “plausible deniability”.
I’ve also sent my experience to my favorite, colorful, theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku. At least to my surprise he took the time and responded when I asked him why mainstream scientists shy away from this Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon business. He wrote back and said that it was because of “the giggle factor”. I can understand that since hard-core scientists need to be able to study the data in a controlled laboratory environment.
So from now on, I won’t use “UFO” as an abbreviation for “Unidentified Flying Object” as this means anything flying in the sky which cannot be identified because of lack of data or the ignorance of the witness or witnesses. This accounts for about 90% of reports made. I will refer to this enigma as “UAPs”, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon” meaning after strict scientific scrutiny, with verifiable data, qualified witnesses and the sighting remains unidentified. This accounts for approximately 10% of the real, genuine reports of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.
Since this incident over 30 years ago, I’ve collected hundreds of newspaper clippings, watched countless documentaries, and since the advent of the internet I’ve downloaded gigabytes of reports, videos, documentaries, information and data. I’ve watched countless video clips on YouTube and laughed at all the B.S. and ignorance from the submitter’s . To them, any light in the sky is an “alien invasion”. Absurd.
I’ve been receiving UAP reports, worldwide, everyday for the last 15 years. Even after all these decades of researching and reading, I still don’t know what this giant object was or what this phenomenon represents. I cannot be objective when it comes to this phenomenon because I saw it with my own eyes. Absolutely no doubt about it. I’m 110% sure it was real. I know what I saw. It was as real as a passing train. I’m not that stupid, ignorant or uneducated to be fooled by something with a natural, down to Earth explanation, so there is no point debating my reports’ authenticity or my integrity. Folks will have to take my story at face value, believe it or not, I simply don’t care.
I don’t have an ego to bruise, a career to protect, or a reputation to lose. So what do I have to gain here by telling a tall tale, opening myself up to even more ridicule? Over the years I’ve come up with many theories and yet the answer still eludes me. Perhaps there’s someone out in the world who has some answers. I want to know. If only mainstream scientist’s would pull their head out of the sand and seriously investigate my experience along with millions of other witnesses. Mainstream scientists reasoning is “it couldn’t be, therefore it isn’t”.
One theory of mine was I thought it might be some kind of secret American aircraft. But than after years of thinking and theorizing I asked myself, why would the U.S be testing top-secret aircraft in the middle of winter, over a large Canadian city?
Than I thought of the “UFO believer’s” simplistic idea that Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon represent extraterrestrial space craft visiting our speck of a world in this vast, ancient cosmos. It was a plausible theory at first but after thinking about it a lot, I disregarded that idea also. If an advanced extraterrestrial race were observing us, they would probably do it from a distance and we humans would not be aware of it, unless these close encounter reports were deliberate in nature.
It’s what our scientists do now. Does a herd of Zebra know they’re being observed by an aircraft kilometers away with high-powered camera’s manned by humans? Are a colony of ants aware that their anthill is only a hundred meters away from a runway of an international airport with Homo Sapiens onboard airplanes with laptops and smartphones?
The reason I use this analogy is because of the age of the cosmos and our very short time in it. Science and logic dictates to me that since the universe is full of water, it has to be teeming with life and most of it must be beyond human comprehension. Advanced civilizations would be so far above us on the evolutionary scale as we are over the amoeba.
In my opinion, the odds of direct communication with an advanced extraterrestrial civilization is highly unlikely. And even if we were confronted by an advanced civilization, would we even recognize it for what it was? But than, what the hell do I/we know anyway? We know more about our Moon and Solar System than the bottom of our own oceans!
