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 event around Levelland, 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.

First is that there are powerful entities in government’s and/or military’s around our planet that are fully aware of this phenomenon. This is the most classified, above top-secret project in history, even more so than The Manhattan Project, (the development of WW2′s first Atomic Bomb). There is definitely a worldwide cover-up campaign, a Cosmic Watergate of sorts, regarding this enigma.
Whoever controls this information are vehemently downplaying, misinforming and outright lying about UAP reality at all costs. There has to be. Over 150 million witnesses, including me, (My Experience) can’t be wrong. Why the global cover-up? Because there is no power on this Earth can do anything about it. UAPs come and go in our air spaces at will. Our leaders don’t want to admit to the public that they cannot protect us. “The Politics Of Fear” backward’s.
Second. I doubt very much UAPs represent extraterrestrials visiting us. I’m convinced the phenomenon is far more complex and profound than the ET theories that the “UFO Believers” embrace. The odds of an extraterrestrial presence close to our level of evolution and technology visiting us are almost mathematically impossible. Why? Simply because of the age and size of the universe. The Cosmos is 13.8 billion years old. Our Solar System is 4.5 billion years young. This tells me that most life in the Universe had a 9 billion year head start before our Sun/Star even ignited! I surmise a small percentage of UAPs might be extraterrestrial in nature but they would be so far ahead of us on the evolutionary scale as we are over the Amoeba. So why bother trying to communicate with a colony of ants.
Third. It is obvious the objects seen are under intelligent control, no doubt about that. There is some kind of intelligence at work here. Not necessarily extraterrestrial, however. Than what? Could they be Ultra-Terrestrials or Inter-Dimensional Homo sapiens? Read more HERE. The possibilities are endless. I came across this article that makes more sense to me than the aliens from space idea. I don’t know how accurate this is but it’s still an interesting read.
Edward Snowden, the leaker of NSA surveillance documents was willing to share shocking and world-shattering exclusive secret government documents with The Internet Chronicle. Snowden’s testimony was as follows:
“The highest levels of government don’t know what to do about UFOs, and the official story that they are all merely weather balloons or natural phenomena have been clearly dismissed. If anything, these documents speak about UFOs as if they are surely guided by an intelligence beyond our own. As it turns out, the most credible and inexplicable sightings are of vehicles that have been spotted leaving the sea floor at hydrothermal vents and directly entering solar orbit .
“Because ballistic missile tracking systems and deep-sea sonar are kept as state secrets, scientists don’t have access to data about these objects. However, most of the contractors at DARPA are sure that there is a species more intelligent than Homo sapiens living in the mantle of the Earth. It makes sense, if you think about it, because that is the only place where conditions have been more or less stable for billions of years. Extremophiles may live at different temperatures than us, but they have been able to thrive and develop intelligence at a seemingly accelerated rate. That’s not true, because they’ve simply evolved at the same rate, but without many of the vicissitudes which set back surface life . . .[The five known mass extinctions, for example, each killing most life on the Earth’s surface].
“The president receives daily briefings about their activities. Analysts believe their technology to be so far advanced that we stand little chance of survival in any potential war. The general sentiment is that we are but ants from their perspective, so there is little chance they would empathize or attempt to communicate with us, and the current contingency plan is to detonate nuclear weapons in deep caverns to ‘sting’ the foe we have no hope of destroying in hopes it would discourage further attacks.”
Critics may allege that what the 30-year-old former NSA and CIA contractor can state with authority about our ultra terrestrial neighbors is already well-known. But the Ground-Penetrating Radar, or GPR, scans, which The Internet Chronicle has shared and confirmed with sources within intelligence community, will only serve to underscore popular bitterness over strategically timed earthquakes and tsunamis.
Just as PRISM shined a new light on goings-on in NSA’s ECHELON computer systems, revealed in the 1990s, the vast complexes of underground cities – laser-etched from pure diamond – apparent in the GPR scans will transform public debate about the balance between liberty and security.”

Ufologist Philip Imbrogno talked about his theory of ultra terrestrials and how it constitutes a radical new quantum approach to understanding the contact phenomenon. In contrast to “extraterrestrial,” which he said has become synonymous with simply aliens from another planet, Imbrogno defined “Ultra terrestrial” as “anything outside of our physical reality” and, thus, encompasses entities from other dimensions and parallel worlds. He explained that his work aims to “combine string theory and quantum physics into the paranormal.” By doing this, Imbrogno said, the enigmatic nature of the paranormal becomes more palatable as it can be viewed in the context of these emerging sciences.
I don’t understand. I just don’t get it. How could this be? How is it done and why? Why doesn’t the world care? This is probably the greatest discovery in human history! I’m referring to UAP sightings that are witnessed and reported by thousands of folks, in a single event, not just some lone individual on a remote farmland, and yet these incidents are never reported by mainstream media giants like CNN or BBC for example.
I’ve witnessed this phenomenon myself with others, Read about it here. Is it true that 90% of mainstream media are owned by large corporations like energy companies? If so, is there a global cover-up of this phenomenon because it represents some kind of new, unknown energy that would make big oil, the engine of the world, obsolete? In short, causing a worldwide energy revolution, ending the world as we know it? I wish I had the answers.
Some of the most famous and well-documented sightings are confined to small, local newspapers and radio only. If one takes the time to research Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, it becomes quite obvious that this enigma is worldwide and the reality of this should be front page news all around the globe! Why isn’t it? What’s going on here? Every decade or so, some of the most intriguing events are those which come in flaps, or waves, have multiple witnesses, photographs, videos, tracked on numerous military radar stations including civilian air traffic controllers and chased by warplanes. See also – Our Jets Scramble After UFOsfrom the Toronto Star. One of the most celebrated cases of this type was the Belgian flap which began in November of 1989. The events of November 29 would be documented by no less than thirty different groups of witnesses, and three separate groups of police officers.
All of the reports described a large object flying at low altitude. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath. This giant craft didn’t make a sound as it slowly and fearlessly moved across the landscape of Belgium. There was free sharing of information as the Belgian populace tracked this craft as it moved from the town of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany. This first startling sighting would evolve into a wave over the next several months. On two occasions, a pair of F-16 fighters chased the mysterious evasive object, but to no avail. On March 30, 1990, a frantic call to military headquarters came from a Belgian national police Captain. He marveled at a giant triangle passing over and simultaneously two ground radar stations were reporting an object of unknown origin on their screens. One of these bases was NATO controlled near the city of Glons, southeast of Brussels.

After contacting other radar facilities, they learned that at least four other stations were also reporting the object on their screens. The object was moving across their screens slowly, and failed to send a transponder signal to identify itself.
Two F-16s were ordered to intercept and identify this phenomenon, and one of the jet’s radars locked the object in. It appeared as a small diamond on the pilot’s screen. The pilots reported that only a few seconds after locking on the target, the object began to pick up speed, quickly moving out of radar range. An hour-long chase ensued, during which time the F-16s picked up the strange craft’s signal two additional times, only to see it fade from view.
The triangular craft seemed to be playing a cat and mouse game, and finally was lost in the night lights of Brussels. The pilots of the fighters reported that the UAP had made maneuvers at speeds beyond the capability of their technology. When the F-16 pilots attempted to lock on to the object with their on-board radar, it reacted immediately. It changed shape on their radar to a diamond shape, increased its speed to 1,000 km/hour, and took swift evasive action.
This image is from the onboard radar screen of an F-16 jet that was scrambled to investigate UAPs over Belgium in 1990
Tapes of the on-board radar of the F-16s show that the object descended from 3,000 meters to 1200 meters in 2 seconds. That’s a speed of 1800 km/hour. The tapes also show the object accelerating from 280 km/hour to 1800 km/hour in a few seconds. This represents an acceleration of 46 G, which is more than a human body could withstand. It is notable that at no time was there a sonic boom.
The extraordinary sightings continued for months as the triangular invader was reported more than 1,000 times, both day and night. The object dipped low enough to easily be seen with the naked eye, and the event became one of the biggest stories in the Belgian media. Another unusual occurrence associated with the Belgian flap was the inability to take a clear photograph of it. Many observers had their cameras ready, and took what they thought would be clear images, but when the film was developed, the image was blurred, and the craft’s outline was vague at best.
This anomaly was addressed by physics professor Auguste Meessen, who was employed by the Catholic University at Louvin. Meessen’s investigation produced a theory that infrared light must be the reason that almost all the images were unclear. To put his theory to test, he exposed film to infrared, then photographed objects in regular light.
The results were the same as the photographs of the triangle-shaped UAP. One good image was finally captured on video tape in April 1990. This image showed the underbelly of the craft with spotlights on the three corners. A still frame from this tape has been seen worldwide, and is a classic UAP photograph. With over 1,200 written reports filed by civilians, confirmed radar sightings, plane radar lock-ins, and military confirmations, the fact that an unknown craft moved across the country of Belgium cannot be denied. Note. It is estimated that only one out of ten UAP sightings are actually reported. Most people keep it to themselves for various reasons for which I understand. So in this case, there could have been over 10,000 witnesses!
The case is also important for its unique information sharing. Civilian and Military officials were forthcoming with the reports, and set a model for others to follow in their pursuit to uncover the mystery behind the UAP enigma. These very poignant factors make this case history extremely rare, with regards to how these cases usually run.
If only the whole world, scientists and governments, would openly share information and try to understand what the true nature of this ancient, global mystery.
Here is an article I found of this famous mass sighting…courtesy of ufoevidence.orgBelgium UFO Sightings Eupen, Belgium 29 November 1989 Two Belgian police officers were on patrol on the Eupen – Kittenis road when they saw what seemed to be a dark, triangular platform with three powerful searchlights on its underside, shining on the ground below. The platform also had a central red light that changed from red to orange. the object was approximately 220 yards off to one side of the road, and approximately 325 yards above a field.
The object changed direction and flew directly over their heads, noiseless except for a soft humming. It then proceeded towards Eupen, stopping to hover motionless over the dam at Gileppe for about 45 minutes. Finally, it headed toward Baelen and Spa and disappeared.
The two policemen contacted the Belgian Air Force at Bierset, which had detected the object on radar. An AWACS aircraft was dispatched from Gelsenkirchen. The event lasted a total of two and a half hours and was witnessed by nineteen police officers at a party in the area as well. Consistent reports were given by other witnesses from Eupen, Liege, Plombieres, Kittenis, Baelin, Verviers, Jalhan, St. Vith, Andrimont, Lontzen, Voeren, Herbesthal, and eastern Belgium, as well as areas of Holland, Luxembourg, and Germany.
Almost an hour later, the same two police officers saw another, but much larger, triangular object appear from behind some trees. It ascended with a climbing turn, rotating horizontally as it did so. It slowly flew away, following the course of a main road at about 65 kilometers per hour.
Wavre, Belgium 30 March 1990 Around 11:00 p.m. the local police began receiving numbers of telephone calls reporting lights in a triangular formation over Wavre, twelve miles south of Brussels. The police in turn reported the sightings to the radar station at Glons. Glons radar confirmed the sightings of a UAP on radar at an altitude of 3,000 meters.
The radar station at Semmerzake verified the Glons tracking and reported it to the Air Force. The radar trackings were compared to the 11/89 trackings at Eupen and were found to be identical. Police witnesses reported that, instead of the unidentifieds being three objects flying in formation, it was one triangular-shaped object with three lights, as had been the Eupen object.
Because of the large number of reports, Colonel Wilfried De Brouwer of the Belgian Air Force decided to scramble two F-16 interceptors from Bevokom. The F-16s were vectored in by Glons radar, and they soon detected a positive oval-shaped object on their on-board radar at 3,000 meters.. They could see nothing visually. The object moved erratically, in a zig-zag path, over the city of Brussels, taking evasive action whenever the pursuing F-16 tried to lock-on.
Eventually, it left the F-16s behind, disappearing at an impossible rate of speed. These objects were seen by thousands of witnesses, many of whom gave signed statements to the police. They were photographed and filmed. The objects were tracked by ground radar at several different installations, and by the on-board radar of the F-16s.
The objects took evasive action when threatened by the F-16s and were able to maneuver at speeds that are impossible for any known aircraft. Sowhat’s going on here? Are we all living in a fishbowl not aware of another reality invisible to us naturally or by design?
I think we should prepare ourselves. We are on the verge of major, profound discovery, one that will change our view of ourselves and our place in this vast, ancient cosmos. Just my humble opinion.
We Are On The Verge Of A Major, Profound Discovery Folks!
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. 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 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 Destabilize Our Civilization, undermine the Petrodollar, compromising the fossil fueled, Global Financial Infrastructure.
Revolutionizing, or totally Metamorphosing our world as we know it today!
“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 unrecognized 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.” 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 recognized. 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 organizations 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 is my duty as a human being and fellow citizen to share my experience with “We The Sheeple”. Hopefully mainstream scientists will also take this seriously as it would be helpful when all of humanity, on our little planet, 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 Unidentified Aircraft. 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 Paleontology to Astrobiology. I’m not an author or a writer, just a one finger typer.
Around the winter of around 1980, 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 Esplanad (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 Aerial Phenomenon. 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 kilometers 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 airplane would “turning right”. Actually it wasn’t banking at all. It was dipping forward pointing towards the ground. At this point, I realized that these lights were not letters at all. They were different shaped, yellowish white lights. I surmised the reason these lights were different in shape was because they appeared to be “imbedded”, “recessed” into some solid body. That’s why they appeared to be all different shapes and sizes.
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.
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. Than 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 mesmerized by this strange Unidentifiable Aerial Object, a surge of adrenaline hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t realize how BIG this thing was. At first I thought it was the size of an airplane 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 realization 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 women 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 my self, “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, than 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 having a car accident? When your heart rate sky-rockets to about 180 beats per minute? That’s what I felt when I realized 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 realized 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. Than after a few seconds they turned off again as it seemed to be over the city. Strange behavior.
Now I was exiting off of the highway on to Spadina Rd. I lost track of these lights because of the tall buildings. When I was on the street where I was going, I saw a cop parked on the other side of the road writing a parking ticked. 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”, and told them what happened but they didn’t take me seriously as they’ve already had a few and were more interested in the ladies.
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 airplane 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, 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” 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. This phenomenon has been here since recorded history, even thousands of years before!
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?
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!
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. I also surmise that we are on the verge of a major, profound discovery. One that will change the world as we know it. I hope I’ll still be above ground to see it so that I’ll have some kind of closure.
This enormous nuts and bolts craft didn’t belong here in our everyday world. What’s really disturbing to me here is that advanced nations around the globe must be are aware of this phenomenon also and are doing their best to play down reports and documents released under the Freedom Of Information Act. Their silence is deafening, especially when there are many reports of warplanes chasing Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, including this report from the front page of The Toronto Star!
The objects are reported to be orbiting, flying circles around our fastest warplanes as if they are stationary. Deliberately evading the jets with unbelievable, instantaneous bursts of speed, outdistanced our fastest aircraft covering many miles literally in a second, in a blink of an eye! There is some intelligence at work here. Perhaps the “UFO Believers” have one thing right. There must be some kind of international cover-up regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon that have been reported for centuries around the globe. Reports of “airship” sightings were made even before man learned to fly!
I’ve searched the web for years trying to find others who’ve witnessed this giant craft that we saw that night to no avail. This picture is the closest I could find that looked literally identical to my sighting.
Randy Etting, a resident of Newtown, was taking a walk outside his home. A commercial airline pilot with over 30 years experience, he always looked at the sky… he saw a number of orange and red lights… approaching from the west… He… got his binoculars and called his neighbors to come outside. The object by this time was a great deal closer and seemed to be over I-84, just east of Etting’s home… the lights were shimmering like distortion from engine heat, but he could hear no sound…
“As the UFO passed over I-84, cars in both the east and west bound lanes began pulling over and stopping. The UFO displayed a semi-circular pattern of very bright multicolored lights. Five motorists reported that, as the object became visible, “a number of cars lost power and had to pull off the highway” (a common characteristic of the phenomenon). A State Police officer [who wishes to remain anonymous] sent to investigate photographed the object.
“… Dr. Bruce Maccabee… [analysed the photo]. His findings indicate the object was huge, perhaps over a thousand feet across, and that the lights showed a definite pattern. He also indicated the lights seemed to have been flashing very quickly in some sort of sequence, giving the impression that some were out of focus while others were sharp.
Since this is my last effort to educate the public, I thought I’d add some facts, figures and quotes that I’ve come across over many years of searching, researching and reading about this fascinating “trickster”,”high strangeness” nature of the phenomenon.
After decades of researching, I’ve come up with some fascinating statistics. According to a report by the United Nations, since 1947 more than 150 million people have been witnesses to Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon activities throughout the world. More than 20,000 of those has been documented landings. It is estimated that only one out of every ten witnesses actually report their experiences for various reasons. So in my case when “dozens” of Mississauga residents reported this huge UAP, then there must have been hundreds of other witnesses who also saw it but didn’t report it. 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 Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.
I’m totally convinced that things are not as they seem. I know it for a fact because I know what I saw. This object was totally out-of-place in our world. Unlike the “UFO Believers”, I’m not going to blindly propose it was extraterrestrial in nature. After watching all kinds of science fiction movies with all of these alien spacecraft envisioned by the authors, this thing didn’t look “advanced” enough. It looked like something that we humans would build 50 to 100 years from now. Humans from the future perhaps? I still don’t have a clue.
I’ve read many books about this phenomenon and found the best objective, scientific investigation from the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek’s two books. “The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry” and “The Hynek UFO Report”.
Dr. Josef Allen Hynek (May 1, 1910 – April 27, 1986) was a United States astronomer, professor, and Ufologist. He is perhaps best remembered for his UAP research. Hynek acted as scientific adviser to UAP studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under three consecutive names:
1.Project Sign (1947–1949),
2.Project Grudge (1949–1952), and
3.Project Blue Book (1952 to 1969).
For many years afterwards, he conducted his own independent UAP research, developing the Close Encounter classification system, and is widely considered the father of the concept of scientific analysis of both reports and, especially, trace evidence purportedly left by UAPs. Here are a couple of his quotes.
“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!”
“The phenomenon of “unidentified flying objects” (UFOs), though few would call it part of science, is also both shocking and paradoxical. UFO reports are often an outrage to common sense. The persistent flow of reports, from all parts of the world, of an object or a luminosity in the sky or on or near the earth defies rational explanation even when made by persons of acknowledged responsibility. Indeed, if these observations are even partially true, understanding them may require a breakthrough — at least in our thinking about the world around us”.
J. Allen Hynek , Ph.D.
At first Allen Hynek was a skeptic, hired by the U. S. Air Force’s Project Bluebook to “explain away” sightings people reported. Most reports were easily identified as meteors, airplanes, satellites, balloons etc. However, after a period of time, Hynek realized that 5 to 10% of the reports were of a “high strangeness”, “trickster” nature of the phenomenon which couldn’t be explained away even after strict scientific scrutiny. He realized that the small percent of the reports were of something real and unidentifiable, flying in our skies and air space apparently under intelligent control. I can attest to that!
Here is a small example of information I’ve uncovered over the decades. Something really big is going on and I’m convinced that there are certain, powerful entities around our globe who are keeping the true nature of UAPs secret from “We The Sheeple”.
UAP And Pilot Sightings
I find this fascinating. Dr. Richard F. Haines, is the Chief Scientist for the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP). His research focuses on airline sightings, airline safety, and these strange aerial mysteries. Dr. Haines goes into quite comprehensive detail about military/civilian pilot sightings, electromagnetic interference effects and the 3400 actual unknown reports collated from aviation professionals, civilian and military.
In 1976, an Iranian fighter pilot in an American made F 4 warplane was ordered to intercept an unknown object caught on radar. As he got close to the UAP, about 35 miles out, the plane began having problems communicating with the ground. It was also having other electronic problems. The pilot abandoned the chase, and flew back to Shahrokhi, Iran. As soon as the plane dropped its original course, all of the plane’s anomalies disappeared. This implies that the UAP was affecting the plane’s functions as it neared the object.
Speaking of electromagnetic effects. For some reason, these unknown objects have an interest, not just in our aircraft, but also in automobiles. For example, on November 2, 1957, one of the best documented cases of UAP landings took place in Levelland, Texas. No less than 15 independent reports were made of a 200 Foot Long Object sitting on a road and as a car would approach, the lights and engine would die. When the UAP left the area, all electronics started working again. This happened 15 times in one night around Levelland. Each incident were almost identical. A driver notices something on the road ahead and as he approaches the car’s engine and electronics are disabled. When the object raises from the ground, with no sound, then shoots off, their vehicle starts up again. Again we must remember. Only about one in ten UAP encounters are reported! How many millions, both civilian and professional, had experienced an encounter with a an unknown enigma and kept it to themselves, mostly in fear of ridicule? Now I know what the gay community had to deal with. At least I have the courage to “come out” and tell my story to the world.
Here are some conclusions from Dr. Haines regarding airplane encounters.
– Radio interference or total failure
– Radar contact with and without simultaneous visual contact
– Magnetic and/or gyro-compass deviations
– Automatic direction finder failure or interference
– Engine stopping or interruption, dimming cabin lights
– Transponder failure, and military aircraft weapon system failure!

Famous Quotes From The Famous
Even though I don’t necessarily agree with all of them, the extraterrestrial hypothesis that is, it is still fascinating in itself. We have to bear in mind the disposition in the 40’s and 50’s when the phenomenon was even more misunderstood as it is today.
“I know that neither Russia nor this country has anything even approaching such high speeds and maneuvers. Behind the scenes high-ranking officers are soberly concerned about UFOs, but through official secrecy and ridicule many citizens are led to believe that the unknown flying objects are nonsense…To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.”
Admiral Roscoe Hillencoter, former director of the CIA, at a 1962 NICAP press conference in Washington D.C.
“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.”
Dr. H. Marshall Chadwell, former assistant director of the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence, in a December, 1952 memo to then-director of the CIA, General Walter B. Smith
“The evidence that there are objects which have been seen in our atmosphere, and even on terra firma, that cannot be accounted for either as man-made objects or as any physical force or effect known to our scientists, seems to me to be overwhelming… A very large number of sightings have been vouched for by persons whose credentials seem to me unimpeachable. It is striking that so many have been trained observers, such as police officers and airline or military pilots. Their observations have in many instances… been supported either by technical means such as radar or, even more convincingly, by… interference with electrical apparatus of one sort or another….”
Admiral Lord Hill-Norton, Chief of Defense Staff, Ministry of Defense, Great Britain, 1973; Chairman, Military Committee of NATO, 1974-77
“I’ve been convinced for a long time that the flying saucers are real and interplanetary. In other words we are being watched by beings from outer space.”
Albert M. Chop, deputy public relations director at NASA, and former US Air Force spokesman for Project Blue Book
“Scientifically we eliminate the simple hypotheses: It’s not a plane. It’s not a helicopter. It’s not a natural phenomenon because the descriptions don’t match Therefor this global phenomenon resists any other explanation. The only remaining hypothesis is the hypothesis of extraterrestrial origin.”
L. Clerebaut, Secretary General, SOBEPS
“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously.”

“I can assure you that flying saucers, given they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth.”
President Harry S. Truman, White House Press Conference, April 4, 1950
“…I made an effort to find out what was in the building at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where the information is stored that has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied this request. It is still classified above Top Secret.”
Senator Barry Goldwater, In a letter dated March 28, 1975
“The evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site. They haven’t kept it a secret… It has been leaking out to the public for 50 years or more…”
Apollo Astronaut Edgar Mitchell
I was flying a P-51 Mustang at about 12,000 feet over Minneapolis in 1951. I thought it was a simple kite. As I flew closer to it I looked at it and thought it was a weather balloon. But as I got behind it I could tell it wasn’t a balloon. It looked like a disc.”
NASA astronaut, Donald “Deke” Slayton
“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.”
Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut, to the United Nations
“While flying with several other USAF pilots over Germany in 1957, we sighted numerous radiant flying discs above us. We couldn’t tell how high they were. We couldn’t get anywhere near their altitude.” “While working with a camera crew supervising flight testing of advanced aircraft at Edward’s Air Force Base, California, the camera crew filmed the landing of a strange disc object that flew in over their heads and landed on a dry lake nearby. A camera crewman approached the saucer, it rose up above the area and flew off at a speed faster than any known aircraft”

“UFO’s are real”
United States Air Force
“I am convinced that UFOs exist because I have seen one.” “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. If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists.” Describing a UAP sighting he had in October of 1969 to reporters while campaigning in 1976.
Former U.S. President, Jimmy Carter, five-time nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize
“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 of the subject.”
Former U.S. President Gerald R. Ford, while in congress, 1966
“I feel that the Air Force has not been giving out all the available information on the Unidentified Flying Objects. You cannot disregard so many unimpeachable sources.”
John W. McCormack, Former Speaker of the House, January 1965
“I would do it [aid the Army Air Force in its investigations] but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to the discs recovered. For instance in the LA* case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination.” —From a handwritten notation at the bottom of a now declassified memo. (asterisk added, see below) “[UFOs are] considered top-secret by intelligence officers of both the Army and the Air Forces.”
From a declassified 1949 FBI document from the San Antonio FBI office, to J. Edgar Hoover
“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. “We ought to do it because it is right. We ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth, and we ought to do it because it is the law.”
John Podesta, White House Chief of Staff under President Bill Clinton
“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
And my favorite guy,
Ronald Reagan, then Governor of California describing his sighting of a UAP in 1974 to veteran newsman Norman C. Miller, then Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. “I was in a plane last week when 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 shot straight up into the heavens.”
“I was the pilot of the plane when we saw the UFO. Also on board were Governor Reagan and a couple of his security people. We were flying a Cessna Citation. It was maybe 9 or 10 o’clock at night. We were near Bakersfield, California when Governor Reagan and the others called my attention to a big light flying a bit behind my plane. It appeared to be several hundred yards away. It was a fairly steady light until it began to accelerate, then it appeared to elongate. Then the light took off. It went up at a 45-degree angle-at a high rate of speed. Everyone on the plane was surprised. Governor Reagan expressed amazement. I told the others I didn’t know what it was…The UFO went from a normal cruise speed to a fantastic speed instantly…If you give an airplane power it will accelerate-but not like a hot rod, and that’s what this was like”
Bull Paynter, a pilot with thousands of logged hours, in Sacramento California
On five separate occasions, Reagan made references to an outside extraterrestrial threat and the unifying effect it would have on us all. One such reference was made in September 21, 1987 while addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations. Towards the end of his speech the President said: “Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond.” Reagan continued, “I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us?” Reagan then back pedaled from the statement by asking another question:“What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our people’s than war and the threat of war?”

Are we being watched and warned? If so, by what or whom?
WASHINGTON DC — On May 9, at the National Press Club some twenty former government employees claiming encounters with unidentified flying objects while performing military or government duties went public to demand open congressional hearings on this mostly highly classified phenomenon. Air Force Academy graduate Captain Robert Salas, who spent seven years on active duty, reported that in March of 1967, UAPs flying above Minuteman Missile silos at Malmstrom Air Force Base (AFB) in Montana had knocked off-line a dozen nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The witnesses gave a picture of UAPs frequently hovering over key military and nuclear sites nationwide. UAPs also penetrated airspace around nuclear weapons systems in the autumn of 1975. Security forces at Loring AFB, Maine, Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan, and others along the Northern Border including Malmstrom AFB again were scrambled. At least one fighter was lost chasing the UAPs.
Lt. Colonel Dwynne Arneson was in charge of the Communication Center at the Twentieth Air Division at Malestrom and dispatching nuclear launch authentication’s to SAC missile crews. He saw messages stating UAPs were near the missile silos. Crew coming to work and going off duty saw the metallic circular objects shinning lights down on the missile silos and shutting them down. Professor Robert Jacobs, who was an Air Force Lieutenant reports he was in charge of the 1369th team filming a ballistic missile launch from Vandenberg AFB. After the second and third stage of the Atlas missile burned out and departed a dummy warhead was left streaking for the target. A UAP could be seen coming into the view tracking the warhead. Beams of light were shot at the warhead repeatedly from the UAP and the warhead started tumbling uncontrollably as the UAP flew away.
The combined testimony of Disclosure witnesses indicates the Earth is being visited by intelligently flown UAPs showing a capability to locate our missile systems, to cause failure of their guidance and control systems, and if necessary to destroy them in flight. These combined activities indicate a sophisticated intelligence providing a clear warning against nuclear weapons. Numerous witnesses and documents back the testimony.
It is my opinion, that there must be a perception by the leaders of these countries that a potential threat exists. President Ronald Reagan went on national television and told the world he was going to build a defensive shield called the Strategic Defensive Initiative (SDI), generally called Star Wars. Its mission was to protect us, to protect us all. We are going to share with everybody including our enemy the Soviet Union. A few years later, we became allies with the Russians and now we fly together aboard the International Space Station. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
Perhaps the real meaning of Reagan’s remarks made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations on Sept. 21, 1987, during the height of the Cold War, becomes more meaningful.
Nick Pope, headed up the “UFO desk” at Air Secretariat 2-A, British Ministry of Defense from 1991-1994, and has served in other departments of the Ministry of Defense since 1985 (You can visit their website and download thousands of documents that have been released to the public under “The Freedom Of Information Act”).
“I concentrate on the science. I’m interested in the UFOs seen by the police and military witnesses. I’m interested in the near misses that pilots report, where their aircraft nearly collide with these things. I’m interested in the visual sightings backed up by radar. I’m interested in the military bases that are overflown by these things. I’m interested in the cases where you have radiation readings on the ground. These are no lights in the sky. These are not misidentification’s of fantasy prone individuals. This is a cutting-edge technology being reported by reliable, trained observers, and it is something that goes beyond what we can do. That to me suggests that if it is not ours, it belongs to someone else.
If that technology is better than ours, then the extraterrestrial hypothesis seems to me the best explanation.” “Certainly when I socialized with my RAF colleagues, I would find that they were a little bit more receptive to the idea of UFOs—and by that I mean perhaps even an extraterrestrial explanation for this — than you might have supposed. One of the reasons for that was that so many RAF pilots had actually seen things themselves. Many of them have never made an official report. I had one chap tell me that he had seen something over the North Sea. I asked him why he hadn’t reported it, and he said, ‘I don’t want to be known as Flying Saucer Fred for the rest of my career.’” LOL
“We were asking the Americans, ‘Are you operating a prototype aircraft in our airspace?’ That, of course, was nonsense. You simply would not do that from a diplomatic and political point of view. It would undermine the entire structure of NATO if you were putting things through someone else’s airspace, particularly a close ally, without seeking the proper diplomatic clearance. But we had to ask.
And the Americans, having had similar reports, I guess, since the Hudson Valley wave [New York state, mid-1980s], had been quietly asking us if we had some large, triangular-shaped object that could go from 0 to Mach 5 in a second. Our response was that we wished we did. This was the bizarre situation: that we were chasing the Americans, and the Americans were chasing us.” “The official line from the Ministry of Defense is, ‘Yes, this happened. No, we don’t know what it is, but we say that it is of no defense significance.’ How can it possibly be of no defense significance when your best jet is left for standing by a UFO? And, again, how can it be of no defense significance when your air defense region is routinely penetrated by structured craft?” -above excerpts are from a taped interview

The best evidence for UAPs is based on the high-caliber witness categories. The Batelle Institute Report from the 1950s confirmed the correlation that the better trained the observer is the better and more accurate the reporting of UFO reports.
There have been over 3000 commercial pilot UAP reports. Many are corroborated by airborne radar, ground radar and multiple aircraft.
There have been over 2000 military pilot UAP reports. Many are corroborated by airborne radar, ground radar and multiple aircraft.
Many of these are truly spectacular encounters.
Many astronauts and cosmonauts have gone on the record outlining sightings during space missions. NASA fails to comment on any of these sightings.
Hundreds of experienced radar operators have gone on record telling of the extraordinary movements and speeds recorded on radar.
Hundreds of trained observers trained in aircraft recognition have gone on record with confirmed unknown aerial objects moving with unknown flight characteristics.
Many noted scientists who have examined the best UAP cases become convinced that some UAP sightings are extraterrestrial in origin.
SENIOR MILITARY COMMANDERS
Many Admirals, Colonels, Generals etc. have confirmed that UAPs are extraterrestrial in origin.
There are thousands of military witnesses from the Army, Navy and the Air Force .
There are thousands of police officer sighting reports from all around the world.
There are hundreds of confirmed well documented UAP landing trace cases from around the world.
There are hundreds of confirmed radar confirmed data records.
There are literally thousands and thousands of historical UAP related documents now in the public domain.
As you can see from these testimonials, the assumption from these professionals is that UAPs are extraterrestrial in nature. I think we have to think outside the box here. Aliens from space is a simplistic, human hypothesis written by some great science fiction writers. I surmise that the true nature of UAPs is currently beyond our science and even beyond human comprehension. There are so many aspects to this mystery that the extraterrestrial hypothesis probably represents only a small percentage of the big picture of this enigma. The larger part, in my opinion, is beyond our imagination. If only I had the resources to purchase the latest high technology tools and be able to travel at will, I would dedicate the rest of my life to gather more evidence and solve the true nature of this mystery.
The Giggle Factor
I’m infuriated by this “giggle factor” (Dr. Michio Kaku’s quote). Every time I watch a UAP report on TV’s mainstream news media, what do I see and hear? The commentators are giggling while speaking, as if it is the big joke of the day, and they have this stupid, silly, annoying “X Files” song playing in the background with flying saucers images splashed all over our TV screens. This pisses me off big time. Mainstream media is making a mockery if us folks who have witnessed this enigma and in some cases ruined the witnesses lives and careers. What a slap in the face!
As one takes the time to research this mystery, it becomes quite obvious that this is a worldwide phenomenon which has been here since the dawn of mankind. The evidence is all around us, from early man’s cave drawings to religious paintings that are centuries old. Perhaps the “UFO Believers” assertation of a “cosmic cover-up” might have some truth to it. Are the powers to be flooding mainstream media with misinformation, disinformation and outright denial to keep us “sheeple” in control? Is it because the phenomenon represents some kind of “free energy” that would make oil, the engine of the world” obsolete? If so than these conspiracy theorists belief in the end of the world scenario does not necessarily mean a destructive, biblical apocalypse, but rather the end of the world as we know it.
In other words, when the UAP mystery cannot be covered up anymore and a whole new reality is unveiled to the general public, then the world will end as we know it. Think of the ramifications on the world’s religious beliefs, energy companies especially big oil, the indirect negative effect such a presence would have on our institutions, especially the bottom-line, whether that line refers to wealth or power.. Transportation, medicine, new unimaginable technologies and so on. Our whole structured civilization will cease to exist as we know it. I hope I live long enough to witness this next step in human evolution.
Well there you have it folks. I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg of the information and evidence I’ve learned over the decades. I have plenty more stored on my hard drives. As I’ve said before, I’m not a “UFO believer” trying to sell the UFO/alien idea. I’m just Joe Citizen, among millions of others, who witnessed something unbelievable, like something out of a science fiction movie, which changed my thinking about myself and our place in this reality forever.
I don’t usually write about UAP encounters unless there are multiple witnesses to the event and the high-caliber of the primary witness. This case comes from an airline pilot with 34 years of flying experience with a very detailed report of the phenomenon making impossible maneuvers which can be collaborated.
A Florida airline pilot who was outside with family in Sunrise exiting a Bruce Springsteen concert reported watching a “large, pulsating, bright white light” that changed shape and color and conducted maneuvers in the sky before moving away at “tremendous speed,” according to May 3, 2014, testimony in Case 55981 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness identified himself as a current airline pilot with 34 years of experience based in Fort Lauderdale who is familiar with air traffic for the local area. Springsteen was in concert April 29, 2014, at the BB&C Center in Sunrise. The witness was exiting the concert about 11:25 p.m. on April 29.
“I know where airplanes should be and I know where they should not be if they have no intention of landing in KFLL on Runway 10L,” the witness stated. “This object I saw was obviously not landing on 10L and should not have been in the final approach corridor.”
The witness described the object.
“I approximate the object/orb/light to have been about 1500-2000 feet between the final approach fix NOVAE and PIONN. These GPS fixes are noted on the ILS 10L Approach Plate for KFLL. That would place it approximately 8-10 miles due west of KFLL on the 270 deg radial.”
The witness noticed other people in the crowd looking at the object.
“As we were coming out the front doors with thousands of fans, I noticed a group of people pointing and staring in the southern sky. I looked up to see what they were watching and saw the following: An extremely bright, pulsating, round white light appeared to be slowly moving north toward the arena. I immediately assumed in was an aircraft on base leg getting ready to make a right turn to land at KFLL. The landing light, or what I thought was a landing light, was extremely bright. Thinking back it really was too bright to be an aircraft but I figured it could be.”
The object then began to pulsate and seemed to change shape.
“It started pulsating from bright white to pulsating blue to red to back to blue, etc. It slowed and I thought it had begun a turn to the east to set up for landing but it appeared to stop in mid-air. The bright light then changed to a star pattern-like design, but the best I can describe it is appeared to be like a bright blue asterisk just like this *. At least three, maybe four but I believe three crossed lines of bright blue crossed lines, steady, not moving, stationary.”
The witness tried to dismiss the light as a known object.
“Before the asterisk design appeared, I kept trying to dismiss this event as first, a jet aircraft inbound to KFLL from the south. But no noise could be heard and the landing lights were too bright for a jet. Then when it appeared to stop in mid-air I figured it to be a helicopter. But still no noise. Then when the star-asterisk (*) pattern appeared, I assumed maybe it to be a helicopter with advertising on the skids – but no written message or ad appeared, just the bright asterisk design.”
The object then changed again before flying quickly away.
“Seconds later the asterisk image disappeared, but a small white orb/light stayed. It then made two or three extremely fast, zigzag flight maneuvers that I have never seen any worldly flying aircraft make. It then suddenly stopped and then shot straight up out of sight at an extreme rate of speed that I cannot explain and not have I ever seen an aircraft or helicopter do before. This whole incident only last about one minute from the time I saw other people watching something to the time it shot upwards to the stars and disappeared.”
The object did not return and there were multiple witnesses to the event, including family members.
“The weather that evening was clear skies. No clouds that I can recall, Visibility was good to excellent, temperature in the low 80s. I could not make out any shape of the object. Only the bright pulsating light that changed colors and shape as described above.”
According to UAP research by various organizations, approximately one out of ten people have witnessed the phenomenon at some time in their lives. Out of that number, approximately one out of ten of those witnesses actually report or tell about their experience for a number of reasons, which is understandable, including the ridicule associated with the phenomenon.
That includes the rich and famous of course!
In 1974, former Beatle John Lennon witnessed an unidentified aerial object in New York City. He was living in an apartment in Manhattan with girlfriend May Pang when he saw the saucer-shaped craft.
It wasn’t just a light in the sky and there were other witnesses. This sighting was up-close, of a huge craft, and it happened right outside Lennon’s 52nd Street apartment. He wasn’t afraid to talk about it and, in fact, he famously wrote about it in a song. This was “Nobody Told Me” and, as Lennon sang it, “There’s UFOs over New York and I ain’t too surprised… Nobody told me there’d be days like these. Strange days indeed.”
The sighting occurred when he was living with May Pang, his so-called “personal secretary” who’d turned into a lover during Lennon’s separation from Yoko Ono. It was a hot August night, August 23, 1974, when John Lennon walked out on his balcony facing the East River to catch a cool breeze. He was completely naked. He started yelling at Pang to come out to the terrace.
When she did, she saw what he saw. According to her description later, it was a “large, circular object coming towards us. It was shaped like a flattened cone and on top was a large, brilliant red light, not pulsating as on any of the aircraft we’d see heading for a landing at Newark Airport. When it came a little closer, we could make out a row or circle of white lights that ran around the entire rim of the craft – these were also flashing on and off. There were so many of these lights that it was dazzling to the mind.
It was, I estimate, about the size of a Lear jet and it was so close that if we had something to throw at it, we probably would have hit it quite easily.” The sighting lasted from five to ten minutes, and the UAP drifted away and came back before sprinting off into the sky. Apparently, Lennon and Pang weren’t the only ones to see the unidentified aircraft, multiple other witnesses (at least seven) had called city newspapers.
It took a lot of courage for Lennon to talk this openly. For starters, he was a Beatle and everyone knew he’d taken his share of mind-altering drugs. Then there was the fact that he wasn’t dressed when he saw it. Under those conditions, to come forward to talk about seeing a UAP was to risk certain ridicule from at least some people, if not a majority. Even more discrediting from the public point of view, he also claimed to have seen one when he was a child.
In the standards of 1974, John Lennon was not a “good” witness. But Lennon was never shy about speaking his mind, even about UAPs. His courage makes it easier for other witnesses even today. Bottom line: John Lennon and May Pang reported to have seen something approximating a “classic” saucer shaped UAP, hovering outside their apartment in New York, something that was the size of a private jet aircraft, from only a hundred yards away, so close they felt they could almost touch it.
Given Lennon’s reputation for brutal honesty, one has think that some fans who did not give much credence to UAP sightings have had to stop and re-consider their positions. You can bet that if John Lennon actually just celebrated his 70th birthday, he would have had a lot more to say on this subject over these last three decades. Just gimme some truth, he’d have demanded. Imagine.
Lennon also portrayed drawings which were auctioned off along with several other John Lennon sketches from the 1970s last Friday, March 21 by CooperOwen Auctions in London. The drawings were given to guitarist Jesse Ed Davis from Lennon. Davis was a session musician who played lead guitar on Lennon’s albums “Walls and Bridges” and “Rock and Roll”. Other drawings by Lennon auctioned included scenery in Japan from 1979 and a sketch of Lennon, Pang and Harry Nilsson in Palm Springs in 1974.
May Pang’s Account Of The UAP Sighting
May Pang says John had always been fascinated by UFOs… he subscribed to a British UFO Magazine, the ‘Flying Saucer Review’. “I had just stepped out of the shower one Friday night toward the end of August when I heard John shout. “Fung Yee, come here.”
May recalls how John sounded “panic-stricken” as he screamed, “Now, Fung Yee. Now!” May immediately ran outside beside John to ask him what was the matter. Lennon pointed to the sky, “Look up there. Tell me what you see.”
May couldn’t believe her eyes. She described what she saw as “a saucer shaped object surrounded by blinking white lights gliding through the sky”, she was “astonished”. It was difficult for her to believe what she was actually seeing, yet still, she was convinced she was witnessing a genuine UAP! She then began to laugh.
John questioned her laughter, and because they were both naked, she humorously replied, “Suppose it’s looking at us. Maybe they think that everyone who lives on the East Side wanders around naked on their balconies on Friday evenings. We look like Adam and Eve.” They went back inside to get a telescope to further study this strange object in the night sky.
May and John weren’t the only ones to witness the UAP. Reports of this phenomenon had been made to both the local police station and to the newspapers. May had never previously believed in the UAP enigma, but after this experience she wrote, “Now I’ve seen it I do believe it.”
What is particularly notable about this account is that May then refers to John describing the object as a “spaceship”… so there’s little doubt that neither May nor John thought they might have mistaken an aircraft, weather balloon or whatever as a UAP. John incorporated the UAP incident on the artwork of ‘Walls and Bridges’. On the bottom right (of the back cover) is written: “On 23 August 1974, I saw a UFO. J.L.”
Lennon mentions UAP sightings on two of his albums.
From the ‘Double Fantasy’ album: Track – “Nobody Told Me”
“There’s UFO’s over New York, and I ain’t too surprised,
Nobody told me there’d be days like these,
Strange days indeed.”

I wonder how many more celebrities have seen genuine UAPs but are afraid to “come out”?
The top 10 UAP sightings from 2012 were recently released by the Science Review Board from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
A record number of UAP sightings were reported to MUFON in 2012, according to a press release. Sightings reports increased from 5,650 in 2011 to 7,290 in 2012 – a 29 percent increase.
MUFON employs trained field investigators with backgrounds in science and law enforcement that interview witnesses to “identify” UAPs. Although most of the reports are identified as known celestial objects, aircraft, meteors, etc., there are always a small percentage of the cases that remain as true “UAPs.” These latter cases are carefully reviewed by a science board.
MUFON’s recently formed Science Review Board (SRB) consists of scientists with degrees in physics, chemistry, geology and electrical engineering. Their work experience includes NASA, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Advanced Mico Devices, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and France’s national space program, CNES. The SRB has reviewed the best cases from the year 2012 and have identified the strongest 10 cases that cannot be identified as any known object.
These 10 cases include triangular craft that became translucent, a circular sphere that flew alongside a private aircraft and disrupted its electrical system, a pentagon-shaped craft that hovered over an automobile and the classic saucer-shaped craft that swayed from side-to-side. These reports came from credible witnesses who had seen incredible things. As the pilot of the private aircraft stated, “I’ve never in my life seen anything like this happen. It was very unexpected because we did not see the vehicle [UAP] approach. The vehicle was about 30 feet in diameter which glowed and may actually have had some solid shape beneath the energy.”
The following are short descriptions of the 10 cases.
Case 36293: 2 p.m., February 18, 2012; near Chase City, Virginia
A father and son, both pilots, were flying in an Ovation II propeller-driven aircraft from Charlotte, NC, to Richmond, VA. They had just crossed the Virginia border and were near Chase City, VA, when they witnessed a bright, orb-like UAP hovering next to their plane. The skies were clear and their elevation was about 7,500 feet. They described the UAP as a bright, circular sphere about 30 feet in diameter. As the object approached their right wing, the plane temporarily lost power. The engine sputtered and all of the electrical equipment including the computers turned off. A very common anomaly with UAP Close Encounters, (Read More Here). The pilots estimate that the object came within 50 feet of their right wing. A few seconds later, the plane regained all systems as the UAP swiftly shot away at an incredible speed. Another common characteristic of the phenomenon reported.
“I’ve never in my life seen anything like this happen. It was very unexpected because we did not see the vehicle [UAP] approach. The vehicle was about 30 feet in diameter which glowed and may actually have had some solid shape beneath the energy. What I could observe on the surface seemed to have some circular, swirling energy force which surrounded something I believe operated it from within.”
Both witnesses have extensive flying experience. One witness is a manager and the other is an executive with a master’s degree in economics. Neither had reason to falsify their report.
Case 36765: 3 a.m., March 25, 2012; at a correctional facility near Cleburne, Texas
Cleburne is approximately 25 miles south of downtown Fort Worth. Two officers on duty at a correctional facility saw a triangular object to their south. It was a clear night and the moon was not out. The object flew over them very slowly, appearing to be going only about 5 mph. The primary witness said that as they walked through the parking lot the lights over them turned on. The object then sped up and was gone to the north in a second. He said he was looking directly at the object when it sped up. The witness believed the object was around 4,000 to 6,000 feet high and about a 1,000-foot distance from him. The witness said there was also a Joshua city police officer that came to the facility and said his dispatcher indicated there were several people who had called in reporting suspicious activity in the skies.
The witness said the lights on the object were white and not bright, but dim and in a series of circles. The object was triangular-shaped and the surface was dark. The object made no sound as it moved very slowly in the sky. He described it as slipping through the sky. He said it appeared to jerk as it moved like it was jumping from one location to another (Bucks County) as it sped up.
Case 41298: In mid-June 2012; near Sutter, California (rural area 40 miles NNW of Sacramento)
A security guard was traveling to a construction site to relieve another officer near a levee off McClatchy Road west of Yuba City when he noticed a glowing white light amongst the trees. As he continued in the direction toward the light he continued to observe it until he came within about 650 yards of the object. He stepped out of his vehicle and observed the object with 10 x 50 binoculars and then his night vision scope to the WSW of his position. During the five minutes that he observed the object he noted its saucer-like shape as it glided a few feet above the tree line. It swayed from side-to-side as it slowly moved and continued to sway from side-to-side even as it hovered. The object would sometimes drop below the tree line and then back up as if it was doing a search. Similar description of the Buck’s County Close Encounter. (Read About It Here/ With Brief Video). Based on the angular displacement of the object in the sky, it would have been between 50-100 feet across. The entire object glowed white and there were three flashing exterior lights that were blue, green and red. The craft emitted sufficient light that the security guard could determine its closeness to the trees because of the craft’s light illuminating the tree tops. The officer took a phone with a 2-3 mega pixel camera, but the object was too far away to see anything but a bright dot on the camera. The officer then drove to the levee to get his partner so that he could see the object, but when they returned the object was gone.
The witness is a 35-year-old security guard who has had law enforcement training and served in the army.
Case 41289: 10:15 p.m., July 13, 2012; rural area near Hartford, Wisconsin; 30 miles NW of Milwaukee
A mother in rural Wisconsin was standing in her driveway on the north side of her house saying goodnight to her daughter who was in the driver’s seat of her minivan with her 4-year-old son in the rear seat. Looking south from the minivan, the daughter could see the front of the house and the sky above, while the mother was facing north with her back to the house. The daughter saw something above the garage roof, stretching from the chimney on the house to a tree about 75 feet away. She stopped in mid-sentence and said, “Mom, what is that?”
The mother ran to the east corner of the house so that she could see the object. Meanwhile, the daughter quickly got out of the van and the two women ran around the east side of the house to the backyard. In that time, the object had moved 200 feet south from the mother’s house and yard and could be seen behind a line of 100-foot-tall trees moving slowly west to east. Both women described the object as huge, big enough to cover the 150-foot-wide property, shaped like a lampshade or a cone with its top lopped off. It had a distinct outline and was brilliant white. The bottom of the object appeared to have a curved convex bulge to it, and there was a row of bright red lights along the lower edge of the object. The daughter saw the red lights “racing” in sequence, while the mother described them as “flashing.”
Both women described several rows of brilliant, white lights ringing the sloping sides of the object, as brilliant as the lights in a stadium.
The craft made no noise as it moved slowly over the neighbor’s property to the east, then accelerated. By the time the women ran to a space between two trees to see where the object was going, it already seemed to be several miles away and over Waukesha County. Then suddenly the red and white lights went out and the object disappeared into the night sky. The entire sighting lasted about 25 seconds.
Case 41918: 5:20 a.m., July 14, 2012; Highway 36 near the town of Milano, Texas, and a repeat event six months later near the same location
At about 5:20 a.m. on July 14, 2012, two men were traveling northwest on Highway 36 and had just passed through the small town of Milano, Texas. The two witnesses saw a pentagon-shaped, black object hovering over the highway ahead of them. At each apex of the pentagon were lights and a more intense light in the middle of the object. The lights at the corners were white and pulsated about once per second. As the witnesses drove under the object they could hear no sound coming from the craft above them. The witnesses saw what they thought were panel lines or vents on the underside of the craft. They estimated that the object was 30 feet above them when they passed under it and the object was about 20-30 feet across. The driver did not want to stop and the two men continued onto their destination.
The primary witness has a BS in chemistry and is working on a master’s of science degree. The other witness, who was driving, has some college training.
It is interesting that a very similar case occurred on this same stretch of highway but six miles farther northwest and six months later, on December 20, 2012. A 35-year-old female and her 16-year-old son were traveling in the same direction on the same road. The witness stated that she and her son first saw the object approach their vehicle from the east. She described the object as about 100 feet across with five sides and flashing lights on each corner. The color of the craft was a dull gray. The craft moved back to the east out of sight. She stated that it came back and hovered directly above their SUV. The witness stated that both she and her son felt threatened by the object. Her anxiety is best described in her own words, “We continued to watch it when suddenly it was RIGHT UP ABOVE our SUV! There are few words that will effectively relay to anyone that wasn’t there just how large and utterly surreal looking this thing was. I was in shock and as a mother I became fearful this thing could be a potential threat considering how close it was. So I stepped on the gas to get away from it.” At this point the son began to video the object with his cell phone camera. It was too far away at that point to see any detail but it was clear from the voices that the mother was fearful.
Cases 37562, 37585 and 36704: April 17-19, 2012; Three separate triangle reports in the same region of Oklahoma and Texas
Three different reports of the same type object occurred in the areas of Tulsa and Oklahoma City as well as just across the Oklahoma-Texas border in Van Alstyne, Texas. All three witnesses described a silent, triangular object that displayed white lights on the apex of the triangle and a ruby-colored light in the center of the triangle. There was not sufficient information in the movement of the object to establish that it was not potentially a drone or experimental aircraft.
One of the witnesses was an individual working on drone aircraft at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. The individual was familiar with the triangular aircraft being used at Tinker AFB and did not believe the object he saw was a known drone because it was hovering in a stationary position and was completely silent.
Unlike the triangular object seen in March in Cleburne, Texas, these objects did not produce any type of movement that could not be explained by a new type of drone such as the X47-B or other experimental aircraft. The most likely explanation is that the military has developed a completely silent triangular aircraft that may be able to move at very slow speeds.
Case 38312: 9 p.m., May 19, 2012; Lawrenceville, Georgia; (rural property about 30 miles NE of Atlanta)
The witness in rural Georgia reported that on May 19, 2012, at approximately 9 p.m. she and four other family members observed nine bright objects pulsating or throbbing deep orange to light orange, each about the size of the full moon, moving ENE to SSW at near treetop level, hovering just above the trees in her backyard at a height of 500 feet to one mile, and then shooting upward into the sky one after another at a 45-degree angle and at an extreme rate of speed. It took each object only 1-2 seconds to disappear from view as it accelerated. One of the witnesses described the movement as, “…the only thing you could see is a streak…” A total of nine objects were seen to make this same pattern of hovering and then rapidly accelerating. Two days later the witnesses observed several helicopters of military design flying and hovering very low over their property. The military helicopters were seen around noon for the next three days. The helicopters were dark, flat-black, unmarked and very, very loud. As one witness stated, “The first time I saw it [the helicopter] he was just over the trees; as he was coming over he paused and he tilted the helicopter towards me and he physically did a buzz around me.” The witnesses took videos of the helicopters on May 22.
The witnesses are all credible. One has a college degree and is a nurse at a local medical facility. Another is a retired automotive executive. Two of the other witnesses are currently enrolled in college courses. The fifth witness is retired.
Case 41616: 10:30 p.m., July 18, 2012; Channahon, Illinois; a small suburb 35 miles SE of Chicago
This report comes from a 50-year-old male. It is best told in his own words.
“I tend to sit outside once my wife turns in for the night. I sit and enjoy a cigar, read something, have a cold beer and let the dog do her business. I do this every night and on clear days I also take my small binoculars out and watch the stars, planets and the moon. I’ve witnessed meteors streak across the sky. I’ve watched satellites slowly move across the night sky. I’ve watched countless airplanes and helicopters, be they civilian, military, commercial, etc. in the sky over my home throughout the years but I NEVER witnessed anything of the type I witnessed on the night of July 18th, 2012.
“I was out in my backyard around 10:30 p.m. having a cigar and waiting for my small dog to finish her ‘ritual.’ My wife and I have a large, handheld floodlight we take with us to check for skunks before we allow the dogs out. On the night in question, I was standing approximately 20 feet from my porch so the sensor on the porch light timed out. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and I looked up and thought I saw movement coming from the Ursa Minor Constellation. It seemed as though one of the stars was moving in a northerly direction. I thought it might be a satellite so I paid it no mind until it ‘stopped’ moving and seemed to blink. As I watched it for a few seconds it seemed as though the ‘air’ around the ‘star’ seemed to ripple sort of the same way heat does when watching it rise from the ground at a distance. It was then that I noticed it ‘moving’ again and thought it odd as the stars that make up the Constellation of Ursa Minor don’t MOVE! So I shined the flood light at the ‘star’ that was moving and that’s when I realized I was watching something very strange. It seemed to ‘absorb’ the light. It reminded me of the way water moves when a pebble is dropped and ripples. As I shined the light on it, it actually seemed to respond. It shined a light back at me! At first I thought it an optical illusion but when I did it a second time, and blinked the light several times, it repeated the sequence I had just done! This ‘THING’ was massive! Made no noise and moved very slow across the sky. It blocked out the stars for a few moments that I shined the light at it as if to let me know it was actually there. I know that sounds silly but that’s what happened. I watched it slowly fade as if ‘cloaking’ again but I could make out the shape as it seemed to blink in and out as it moved. I lost sight of it as the tress blocked my view of it.”
Case 43607: 4 p.m., October 23, 2012; Ball Ground, Georgia; a town of about 1,400 people
Two women and their two children saw a silent, black object that hovered almost directly over their home at a height of several hundred feet. The duration of the incident was about 30 minutes. Three short videos of the object were provided by the witness.
The videos show a somewhat circular object with lights that periodically flashed around its perimeter. This object is not yet identified and the videos are currently being studied.
Case 44556: 8:15 p.m., December 13, 2012; central Georgia about five miles from Dublin
At approximately 8:15 p.m. on December 13, 2012, the witness and a companion were traveling west on I-16 just west of Dublin, Georgia, when he observed a saucer-like craft approach his truck at treetop height from the right (north) shoulder of the interstate. The object slowly approached the witness’ vehicle and hovered for a few seconds and then disappeared. The object was about 30 feet in diameter, had eight white lights around the underside perimeter and one white light, equal in size of those on the perimeter, in the center. The lights did not appear to illuminate the ground, only the object itself. The entire encounter lasted less than one minute with the object coming within 100 feet of the vehicle.
The object had smooth, easy movements like it was tracking his vehicle, which was traveling down a major interstate highway about 70 mph. The object moved toward the truck and, once it was directly overhead, the witness lost sight of it, although he did not see where the object went once it was directly overhead. The object seemed to be less than 100 feet high when the witness lost sight of it. The object had the look of spun aluminum, not shiny. It flew from east to west over the westbound lane of I-16. The entire incident lasted less than a minute.
The investigator was only able to talk to the driver as the second witness refused to talk about the sighting saying that it was too upsetting. The primary witness insisted that there were many other witnesses to this event but as of this date, no other witnesses have come forth.
