    The Flatwoods Monster 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxCtROFks14&feature=g-all-u&context=G2e8cb3fFAAAAAAAAAAA

    Here's a video presentation of renowned author, newspaper & magazine reporter and investigator Ivan Sanderson's 1953 audio report (during a radio interview in New York) of what he discovered only 1 year earlier in 1952. The Braxton County (West Virginia) incident is world famous and continues to be evaluated with the top UFO investigators. Considered one of the world's most unusual happenings, the UFO (sometimes referred to the Braxton County Monster and not to be confused with that other famous West Virginia monster, The Mothman") was seen by at least 14 people. Hear Ivan Sanderson talk about what the kids saw... and how they (and a dog) reacted. The date was September 12, 1952. What the boys saw was described as a "shooting star" that fell to earth on the top of the hill adjacent to the playground. About the length of a football field away, they all saw an object that was glowing and hissing. Walking closer to check out the "star", they noted that it was about 10 feet around. A few feet away from this glowing object they saw two lights, much like the glow of flashlights, about 12 inches apart. One of the boys had a flashlight and when he turned it on the object a huge creature with "...a bright red face, bright green clothing, a head which resembled the ace of spades, and clothing which, from the waist down, hung in great folds" was seen. Newspapers sent special reporters to cover the story.

    I believe the name of Henri Coandă is briefly brought up in connection with this case (28:06).

    Coanda Effect Flying Saucer


    "These airplanes we have today are no more than a perfection of a toy made of paper children use to play with. My opinion is we should search for a completely different flying machine, based on other flying principles. I consider the aircraft of the future, that which will take off vertically, fly as usual and land vertically. This flying machine should have no parts in movement. The idea came from the huge power of the cyclones."

    UFO Files - The Brazilian UFO Crash: The Varginha Incident 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMyiH-dFqfs&feature=g-vrec&context=G2eb5d6bRVAAAAAAAABw

    In January, 1996, in the town of Varginha, Brazil, a number of 'aliens' were apparently sighted, captured or killed by locals and turned over to US authorities. As many as six aliens were supposed to have crashed in the area, and were described as 3 to 4 feet tall humanoids, with dark brown hairless skin, big triangular heads with three short 'horns' and huge red eyes. It sounds like a fairytale, but there were more than a hundred local witnesses who swear to what they saw. We talk to the 'first responders' on the scene of the crash, the local Fire Brigade, as well as the local soldiers who assisted in the capture. We also talk to the local hospital staff who actually claim that they 'treated' the surviving creatures. And we talk to the girls who first saw the aliens and the dozens of eyewitness who saw them in the town. Mass delusion? Too much tequila? The evidence is shocking.

    A new view of Stephenville

    Mutual UFO Network’s radar analysis of the watershed Stephenville incident has been languishing in obscurity for nearly four years. But recently, a British computer programmer’s animated reconstruction of that data has brought the mystery into sharper visual focus.

    Where were the military pickets when an unidentified intruder without a transponder beacon set a course for President Bush's western White House in 2008?/CREDIT: abacuspub.com

    Applying a program that duplicates conversions used by air accident investigators, Rob Jeffs has bundled the 2.8 million radar returns MUFON acquired from five FAA and National Weather Service sites, and recreated moving images of the air traffic over central Texas from 4-8 p.m. on Jan. 8, 2008.

    Jeffs compressed the four-hour window into just under three minutes. The first version shows transient individual blips as they appeared on radar in real time, which makes the UFO’s path more difficult to follow. The second version is more dramatic because it imprints each radar track and plots the UFO’s course as it beelines from Stephenville southeast towards President Bush’s ranch in Crawford. The most compelling activity doesn’t kick in until around 6:55 p.m., or 18:55 according to the time counter at the top of the frame.

    The second version is presented below, and to understand everything that’s going on, read the MUFON report. You may need to enlarge your screen, but keep an eye on the color coding. The green (and, rarely, blue) objects have activated their transponders; the white blips have not. Carswell Air Force Base sits to the northeast. Its F-16s are flying in pairs or groups of four, but only half the planes are employing transponders. They conduct maneuvers long before the UFO lights the scope.

    MUFON investigator Robert Powell, who analyzed the original radar data from FOIA records with Glen Schulze, notes the planes that cross the UFO’s path as it nears Crawford are likely at high altitudes of maybe 30,000 feet and says they’re non-military craft. Which raises the question (again): Where the hell is security when a bogey without a transponder sets a head-on course for restricted air space over the former Western White House? Recent history indicates the law doesn’t necessarily wait ‘til an intruder violates the no-fly zone to pounce.

    “As far as I can tell, we’ve pushed the limits of what can be known with the available data,” Powell says from Austin, Tex. “To me, if a person is trying to visualize an event, it’s a lot more meaningful to see it actually unfold, as opposed to Excel charts or power point slides. I think Rob’s done a pretty good job.”

    Jeffs calls his application RADARplot. He hopes to get governments now conducting UFO research to run their own data through his program. Directing technical questions at De Void is a fool’s errand. Contact Jeffs at freeman69@gmx.com.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.

    Sightings of UFOs also occurred in Australia, Canada, Ecuador, India, Luxemburg, Mexico, Spain, and England in the United Kingdom.
     

    The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. Under Project Blue Book, the US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years; and we continue this research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Special Reports

    “Heaven Is for Real”

    Bill and Mom.jpgThis article is written in memory of my wonderful brother William E. Filer who died in his sleep with a smile on his face yesterday April 17, 2012 of a sudden heart attack. He had told me several times he was not afraid to die because he had died, been rushed to the hospital in an ambulance a couple years ago and worked on in the emergency room. He had an out of body experience and watched from over head as the Doctors worked to revive him. He had seen a beautiful place and been welcomed by angels and only returned when he had been revived. I feel now his soul has been taken to Heaven and he is with our parents. This is a photo of my Brother Bill and our Mother.

    My wife happens to be reading the New York Times #1 Best Seller, “Heaven Is for Real” on her Kindle. It is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters Heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room.

    Heaven Is For RealThe boy’s family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from Heaven to help us!

    The book is told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is Heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves us, if you accept how good Jesus is you are given a ticket to Heaven. He was told be ready, there is a coming last battle. http://www.amazon.com/Heaven-Real-Little

    We live in a galaxy that teems with life and intelligence in every direction and there is a planet called Heaven. Is it really so unrealistic to assume that Heaven does in fact exist? "Much of the confusion in the UFO field has been created by the need of many people to force all of the UFO phenomenon into a single cause. The logical question is what has this to do with UFOs? I suggest there is a connection.

    Heaven could send angels to pick up the souls of our departed. The thousands UFO reports this month could be explained by UFOs on a Godly mission. This all sounds strange but scripture from numerous sources claim Angels are extraterrestrial messengers of God. Thousands of witnesses claim to have seen both Angels and UFOs.

    HeavenCanWait.jpgIn the movie “Heaven Can Wait” a spaceship carries those who died.

    I would like to believe the angels came and took my only brother to Heaven. Angels are essentially spiritual and superhuman beings who are messengers of God and visitors from another world. One angel brought the message of the entire Koran to Mohammed and the Moslems. An Angel of the Lord spoke with Abraham in the Torah, when he was 99 years old and childless, telling the Jewish leader he would be the father of a multitude of nations. The Mormon founder Joseph Smith saw Heavenly visitors, stating, “When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air.” The Hindu God Vishnu reposes far above the highest Heavens in Viakuntha. In the

    Christian Bible it states: In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The Angel went to her and said, "Greetings you are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angle said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his Father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, his kingdom will never end.

    "How can this be?" Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?' The Angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will over shadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God!| Luke 1-verses 26 to 35. Two thousand years later, much of world celebrates this birth at Christmas and resurrection at Easter.

    HeavenRaphael.jpgMuch of our history revolves around visitors from a planet called Heaven. Angels are often given credit for bringing writing to Earth. Thousands of books have been written describing their interactions with Earth. If you visit the great temples and churches around the world, almost all have the story of a strange being who oversaw their construction. Often there are similar stories of strange objects in the sky. Several friends of mine claim to they were healed by angels that visited them. To understand the events of the last few weeks is to realize all that happens in the world may not be simply by chance. “For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

    Raphael’s Vatican 1510 Fresco, Disputation shows the Holy Trinity in Heaven

    The Bible promises that when we die our immortal souls are taken to Heaven while are bodies remain on Earth, but no one seems to know how this is done. Several recent books tell of people dying visiting Heaven and meeting Jesus, and God the Father, with angels and returning. . Many people claim they have their own Guardian Angel who watches over them. Thousands of books, television shows, paintings, and movies indicate angels are real. I have a friend Alice whose parents were told by her Doctor, she would not live through the night. She insists angels healed her by shining a green light on her. Her parents found her playing on the floor the next morning

    We are told they are sons of God and come from a planet called Heaven and are given credit for many healings and the protection of many people throughout history. The Bible records 104 appearances of Angels and that one third rebelled against God and came to deceive man. These fallen angels tempt us and marry women of Earth.

    Think of these ancient writings as technical, historical and moral imperatives. The Commandments prepare us for joining other civilizations in the universe. ‘“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: “ .” On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’ Honor your father and your mother, You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; his wife, nor anything that is your neighbor’s. "

    Carl Sagan.jpgCarl Sagan was the Director of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies at Cornell University. He played a leading role in the American space program since its inception in his book, "Intelligent Life in the Universe" indicated Earth had likely been visited by extraterrestrials. He states: I feel that if the Sumerian civilization is depicted by the descendants of the Sumerians themselves to be of non-human origin, the relevant legends should be examined carefully." (Page 456) He goes on to ask, "What might an advanced extraterrestrial civilization want from us?"......He answered his own question again by stating, "One of the primary motivations for the exploration of the New World was to convert the inhabitants to Christianity -- peacefully if possible -- forcefully if necessary. Can we exclude the possibility of an extraterrestrial evangelism?" (Page 463)

    Islam, Angels were sent as divine messengers to humans to instruct, inform, or command. An Angel visited Mohammed and directed the introduction of Islam. Angels also function as Heavenly warriors and as guardians. Many people claim healing, love and miracles from the Angels who are often called the Sons of God. In traditional Israelite thought, Angels were assumed to have the form of human males, and as a consequence they were sometimes mistaken for men. "Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares." (Hebrews 13)

    We are made a little lower than the Angels. They can look like you and I but also have the ability to appear as a spirit. Common angels are real personal beings with souls, passions, emotions and desires. Some angels rebelled against God.

    BillyGraham.jpgBilly Graham, the evangelical minister and the friend of US Presidents in his book, "Angels God's Secret Agents," makes the following surprising statements,

    "Some have speculated that UFOs could very well be a part of God's Angelic host who preside over the physical affairs of universal creation. While we cannot assert such a view with certainty nothing can hide the fact that these unexplained events are occurring with greater frequency around the entire world. Some take the detailed descriptions of a highly credible airline crew and lay them alongside Ezekiel and put forth a strong case ---- such theories are now being given serious attention even by people who make no claim to believe in the God of the Bible. UFOs are astonishingly Angel-like in some of their reported appearances."

    Most of the description of Angels compares nicely with our available data of at least one group of the alien visitors. In Genesis, the first book of the Bible and Torah; Angels are described as having bodies with parts such as hands, feet, eyes, head, voices, mouths, hair, faces and other human body parts.

    A few years ago, I had dinner with Zecharia Sitchin the bestselling author of books called the "Earth Chronicles." He told me that Genesis is true and ought to be read as a historic and scientific document rather than just a religious one. He felt ancient civilizations are older and much more technically and scientifically oriented than we once believed. Ancient Sumerian texts as well as the Bible reveal the existence of Angels or Anunnaki, 'those who from Heaven to Earth Came.' He felt that only in recent years is modern science catching up with ancient scientific knowledge.

    UFOwww.fantastic-plastic.com.jpgOne interesting fact is that the Bible often mentions the Angels in Glowing Metal craft. The Hebrew word 'hashmal' refers to glowing metal in the description of the divine glory and brightness and the appearance of fire from the craft. The descriptions of Ezekiel in the Bible (1:4, 8:2) clearly indicate brilliant highly polished glowing yellow like brass or electrum an alloy of silver and gold.

    Throughout the Bible and Torah we are told that the Angels were able to introduce life into old women and even virgins. For example, part of God's covenant with Abraham and Sarah his barren 90 year old wife was to give them a son Isaac. Some of these births that appear supernatural could be accomplished by advanced technology. John the Baptist was also born after the Angel Gabriel appeared before Zechariah and his barren wife Elizabeth. According to the testimony of modern-day abductees similar births are occurring today.

    War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness

    Astronauts have always been my heroes. Dr. Edgar Mitchell and I spoke to about fifty Congressional staff personnel in Washington at the National Press Club. I was able to speak with him privately alone for about twenty minutes. He felt we were being visited. I asked. “What was the real secret about UFOs? He said, “The answers are all in the Dead Sea Scrolls.” I said. “Do you mean the Sons of Light and Darkness?” He said, Yes.

    I looked up what I thought fit. In the text of the scrolls, "War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness" two sides are in the apocalyptic battle. The angels are described as being part of the fight. "Warrior angels are in our muster, and He that is mighty in War is in our throng. The army of His spirits marches beside us. Our horsemen come like clouds or like banks of dew, to cover the earth, or like torrential showers, to rain judgment on all the grows in it." P.414

    Opposing the good forces are the forces of darkness. “But for corruption thou hast made Belial, an angel of hostility. All his dominion is darkness and guilt. All the spirits that are associated with him are angels of destruction. They follow only the laws of darkness, and their craving is directed toward it." P.416, the Dead Sea Scriptures.


    Walking all alone in the Southern rain
    By graveyards and battlefields that blood still stains
    Back to a time when the angels came
    Walking all alone in the Southern rain

    In the forests and the fields so many men were killed
    I can hear their cries still echo through these hills
    That was the time when the angels came
    Walking all alone in the Southern rain

    The angels came down to the fallen men
    They held their hands and they prayed for them
    They carried their souls beyond the moon and the sun
    All the way to Heaven one by one

    The angels worked so hard for so many years
    To Heaven and back again they shed so many tears
    They left no one and they placed no blame
    Walking all alone in the Southern rain

    The angels came down to the fallen men
    They held their hands and they prayed for them
    They carried their souls beyond the moon and the sun
    All the way to Heaven one by one.

    Mars Viking Mission Found Microbial Life 30 Years Ago.


    Ker Than for National Geographic News reports, in 1976 NASA sent two space probes, Vikings 1 and 2, to Mars to determine whether life exists on the red planet. The probes carried three experiments specially designed for the task, one of which was called the Labeled Release (LR) apparatus. The LR experiment worked by scooping up a bit of Martian soil and mixing it with a drop of water that contained nutrients and radioactive carbon atoms.

    The idea was that if the soil contained microbes, the life-forms would metabolize the nutrients and release either radioactive carbon dioxide or methane gas, which could be measured by a radiation detector on the probe. A number of control experiments were also performed; including heating some Mars soil samples to different temperatures and isolating other samples in the dark for months—conditions that would kill microbes that rely on photosynthetic organisms for survival. To the delight of many biologists at the time, the LR experiment came out positive for life, and the control experiments came out negative. "The minute the nutrients were mixed with the soil sample, you got something like 10,000 counts" of radioactive molecules—a huge spike from the 50 or 60 counts that constituted the natural background radiation on Mars, said study team member Joseph Miller, a neurobiologist at the University of Southern California and a former NASA space shuttle project director.

    Unfortunately, the LR experiment results were not backed up by the probes' other two experiments, both of which came out negative for life, so the space agency dismissed the possibility.

    Now, after running Viking's LR data through a mathematical test designed to separate biological signals from nonbiological signals, Miller's team believes that the LR experiments did indeed find signs of microbial life in Martian soil. His team also found signs of a Martian circadian rhythm in the Viking LR experiment results. Circadian rhythms are internal clocks found in every known life-form—including microbes—that help control biological processes, such as waking, sleeping, and temperature regulation. On Earth this clock is set to a 24-hour cycle, but on Mars it would be about 24.7 hours—the length of a Martian day. Miller noticed that the LR experiment's radiation measurements "were going up during the day and coming down at night. ... The oscillations had a period of 24.66 hours just about on the nose," Miller said.

    Despite his own conviction that the Viking mission detected life on Mars, Miller said he doesn't expect most people will be convinced until they can look at a video of Martian bacteria sitting in a Petri dish. The new Mars-life research is detailed online in the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences. Note: Life on Mars was predicted ten + years ago in these files.

     

    Earthquake Danger on U.S. West Coast

    There is continued movement along the Ring of Fire in the Pacific Ocean that is bad news for the American Coasts. Ninety per cent of Earthquakes and most volcanoes are in the Ring of Fire.

    If a major earthquake occurred in a major city, it would create tremendous damage. Last Wednesday, two giant quakes struck in Indonesia, one measuring a magnitude of 8.6. The Indonesia quakes are on strike-slip faults, the same type as in California. Two quakes hit with 6.5 in Mexico, and a 5.9 quake hit off the Oregon coast.

    Japan, Chile, Indonesia and New Zealand have all been hit by major earthquakes.
    In 2001, there were 137 earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or greater and in 2011 there were 205 indicating a clear upward trend. This trend seems to be intensifying with numerous small magnitude quakes rattling California every day. It is very likely earthquakes of historic importance will strike the West Coast of the United States as well. http://www.activistpost.com/2012/04/ring-of-fire-is-roaring-to-life-and.html

    Sightings of UFOs in the United States

    Arizona Radiating Light

    LAKESIDE -- I was taking my dog out on April 11, 2012, and I always look at the sky. I thought it was Venus at first. Then it turned and got much bigger. Then the lights started radiating from the middle of it blue and white like sunrays. Then it sucked the lights back in maybe 15 seconds later it did the same thing. It looked like a prism...I watched it for a while and then I called my neighbor to come out and see it...she told me it was a galaxy and went back in. I took some pictures with my phone and went back in. I just looked away from it and it is gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Roosevelt Lake – On February 17, 2012, while taking pictures my girlfriend and I noticed a UFO in the picture during a trip. While viewing it in the camera viewer which has digital night shot. It was just getting dark around 6 PM and looking south high over the lake, my girlfriend shot several pictures before the UFO shot back up into the sky. One of the photos shows the kids and me down at lake with the UFO straight across from us. It was only seen with the camera. It looks like a glowing angel.

    Note: Apparently the witnesses only saw the object through the infrared spectrum camera viewfinder. The night shot function was activated and the camera was detecting beyond the visible range. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    California Object

    My friend went to the beach and sent me this picture and when I expanded the picture there’s a gray object right above the water in the center of the picture.

    Note: Object may be a bird with a dark head.

    Connecticut Green, Glowing Whale Hits Lake

    Litchfield -- The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that a person driving in Litchfield at about 2 AM, Tuesday reported that an object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into Bantam Lake. Officials say that at about the same time, a state trooper ten miles away in Warren called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky and landed near Bantam. Firefighters made several passes up and down the lake in a boat looking for a possible plane crash, but didn't find any debris.

    Authorities called off the search, leaving the mystery unsolved. But science may have the answer: According to the National Weather Service, there was a meteor shower that morning, WTNH.com reported. Perhaps the whale-sized object was simply a meteor?

    Florida Keys UFOs at Sea

    MARATHON --I was sitting on my back patio talking with my brother over the phone on April 11, 2012. I was lying back in my chair facing ESE. I saw a dim blue light appear dead center of my field of view. It then increased in brightness even exceeding that of Venus, and then gradually faded the same way it began. The whole thing was +/- five seconds in duration. That is really about the extent of it. I saw the exact same thing about a month ago facing almost due South on this occasion. Last night’s occurrence was right in front of my face and the sky was quite clear. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Bahamas -- O n March 19, 2012, my girlfriend and I went on a Carnival cruise to the Bahamas, on the last night out to sea when the sun was setting over the ocean I told my girlfriend to look at the sunset and I started taking pictures. I took a total of five photos and it was not until tonight that I looked at them on my cell phone while cleaning out old data. When I got to this picture I noticed the two lights and sent the photo to my computer to get a better look. I could not believe my eyes. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Hawaii Object

    This was never seen by my wife and me but I noticed the object in this picture a few years ago on April 14, 2000! Photo taken with 35 MM film in Hawaii.

    I take many pictures! Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Indiana Flying Object

    Blanford -- I've been trying to send recent UFO photos to people but they all say they are not going through. So, I want to mail you copies of ufo photos I took the nights of Jan. 6 to 10. I also have over an hour of vhs video of them. All were taken from my house in Blanford, Indiana. On January 11, 2011, in the early morning hours one buzzed my house making a strange sound. I saw it but had just gotten up from bed to the window so I didn't get a photo. I have over two dozen still photos and some I have to pick up yet as well as some still in my cameras. What they show is amazing. Please send me a mailing address. Thank you Richard Bondira. P.S. I've waited 30 years for this. In May of 1982, I saw a ufo in clear daylight and close up, but did not get any photos. This time I've got them. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Montana Triangle

    Butte -- I was randomly taking pictures and caught this on camera on March 25, 2012. I almost missed it because it was caught in the upper right hand corner. There is NOTHING above our little house, no satellite dish or nothing. The pink blob is just a lens flare as you get when shooting towards the sun. If you zoom in you can see well. This is the second aerial object I have seen over the last 3 years. I don’t think there is JUST the typical disc or triangle objects out there. Think of all the objects not picked up by the naked eye that are in our space.

    Note: The witness sent 2 photos. The photo displayed above does not contain the lens flare described by the witness. This was in the photo not displayed. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    New Jersey Disc

    WOODSTOWN -- The object was in the southern sky about two fists above the horizon and 250 degrees off the Woodstown VOR (OOD) on March 25, 2012... The altitude was around 9,000 feet. The object was in a hover mode for around an hour then slowly moved further south and climbed to a higher altitude. On Sunday around 10:30 pm the object appeared in the same spot and had the same flight pattern. While observing this object a large aircraft was just below the object and had “usual " aircraft NAV lights. The object would only flash the colors light blue, light green, and red. I called the Millville Flight Services at 10:45 PM, to report this matter. NOTE: The above image is a rendering. This case is under investigation by Ed Dobson of MUFON New Jersey.

    WALL -- I was driving on Parkways south from work around Exit 98 on April 12, 2012, and saw in plain sight below cloud cover a missile shaped object with green trail afterburner? The sighting lasted only a few seconds while I was listening to the music on my cell phone that suddenly cut out during the sighting. Right after the sighting a down pour of rain occurred. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New York Aliens of Light

    CAPE VINCENT -- I had stayed up late Christmas Eve, sewing Christmas stockings for nieces in 1992. My spouse was in bed and only my sewing machine light and the hall light was on. I went to kitchen and saw a huge glowing light or movements in farm field directly across the street. I went into bedroom to wake my husband to look out bedroom window. He awoke and remembers seeing the lights but could not stay awake. I was aggravated as he always has been interested in the unknown, but could not stay awake.

    I continue looking out the window, only to see an entity that appeared to have a masculine type human form, very tall, 7-8 feet tall. The only way I can describe it is as if it was a form surrounded by a Neon light. Entity was standing by light pole directly across from the end of my driveway. I then became frightened and just prayed for God not to let whatever it was to not bother us. NOTE: The above image is a rendering from the movie "Knowing".

    Ohio Rectangle

    Columbus -- My former fiancé and I were leaving our home on his motorcycle and headed west toward I-71 about June 18, 1984. As soon as we turned onto the main road we noticed three painfully bright lights in a distant triangular formation, hovering not far above the ground. At first we thought that they were attached to a crane, but as we realized that they were a bit too high up for that. My ex was in the Air Force and knows aircraft. We could see the huge silhouette behind the lights. It was about the size of a football field, like a huge rectangular slab lying horizontally a few hundred feet above the parking lot. As we drove past it we could see smaller colored lights on the bottom of it. It had various geometric shapes in relief all over the exterior and was gunmetal gray. It was perfectly silent.

    When we drove to the back of the craft we noticed figures moving behind five huge rectangular windows lit from within. We drove toward a group of teens who were looking at the craft and we slammed on our brakes. They ran onto the parking lot and were nearly under it when it shot straight up into the sky and disappeared without a sound. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Tennessee Lights

    Pauline Pretsel I haven't a clue to what this is. It is different from other things I've gotten but yet was a 'flashing' in the sky like I take all the time. I never know what it is except flashes until I can enlarge it a bit and the details and colors come out. The following shots were taken April 1, 2011 around 9 pm, facing the southeast.

    Several people from church including the retired military pilot and his wife saw it. The photos are taken straight up in the air where you can't get the 'background of something. Thanks to Pauline Pretsel

    Texas Lights

    Texas City -- On the night of April 7, 2012 many people witnessed mysterious orbs of light hovering in the night sky. The UFOs hovered over Lake Moses while making their signature "triangle" shape before disappearing. Thanks to ABC 13, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dsw6SbCtVig

    Washington Strange Light

    This security camera detects motion and sends a series of photos to my email. I found these photos strange as the light appears to be hovering right over the front of my truck. Where the object is over the truck there is a block wall so no light could be shinning through. No one is aware of the camera, and I went out and tested it the next night with a mag light but it was not nearly bright or large enough. I think this is from something hovering. The only other possibility for this photo is a UFO.

    Note: I do believe I used to be abducted when I was young and feel this may be an attempt to keep tabs on me. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Australia Strange Lights

    Huntley New South Wales -- At 2:00 AM local time, on February 20, 2012, a bright flash occurs. Three strange lights hover close to ground. Dog barked at lights. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    SYDNEY -- My friend and I were walking home from the park on April 15, 2012, when my friend looked up and said "Whets that?" I looked up and saw a circular disk with four spikes and a red spot above the power lines in the sky above me. Balloons don't have spikes. As we watched, the UFO moved up and down while hovering and was ascending at the same time. It got very high into the sky, making it appear star like. It hovered across for maybe 50 seconds which is when we filmed the object as it moved sideways and rose into the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Canada Light Speed

    Banff -- I was leaving to go camping when my mother noticed stunt jets but it didn't take long to realize they weren't jets or but birds flying like military planes in a Triangular formation the whole time. I started recording their flight and did till the top bird I was zoomed on disappeared. The video reveals it disintegrated and jumped at light speed. It strongly suggests it took off at light speed by seeing the red spectrum adherent to space objects moving away from us at the speed of light or faster. This report is a more broken down analysis of the original recording video. You can find more spirit reality at YouTube channel Mr. Dan Bunes. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Ecuador Flying Object

    CUMBAYA -- This was taken near the new airport on March 26, 2012. When I first saw the picture I thought, "It looks like a flying saucer" as cliché as that term may have become. It was simply hovering. Without knowing a precise distance or size, it is too difficult to say if something is moving or stationary unless it moves at great speeds. This was the first time I saw a metallic craft saucer-like object. Normally, I see what I think of as "light ships." Sometimes the light ships become very bright before blinking out or flying away much faster than before. My camera is old now. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    India Orb

    My friend saw something odd and gave me a ring, on April 11, 2012. I awoke and took 30 images of an odd object. To a naked eye it appeared like a dot but larger than any star but smaller than the moon when I shot it at night. The features observed were two projections and kind of tail; these were apparent only in the zoomed and clicked image. The tail was kind of a very thin line but with a thicker sphere kind of thing at its end.

    The object was stationary and the day was moderately cloudy. When I shot the UFO amidst the clouds, the capture was pretty much the same except for a slanted black band covering more than half its area. A black band with a dot in the band zone was consistently seen. I gazed at it for about half an hour and saw no apparent motion. A half hour later it was seen no more. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Luxembourg Triangle

    Luxembourg city -- I was driving east on motorway A6 west at an average speed of 110 Km/hour on February 1, 2010, when I spotted a UFO with a sharp borders and no tail. It was a deep black color and it was very visible due to the dark blue sky. It also had three average sized white lights and a red light at the center with two more blinking white lights near the center of the triangle. The length is at least 100 meters. The flight was at a very low altitude and it flew straight north going right above Luxembourg City despite overflight restrictions. The UFO was silent and quite slow. The above image is a rendering.

    UFO claims surround military jet mystery on the Costa del Sol

    Costa del Sol residents believe that the trio of fighter jets may have been tailing an "alien craft"

    EXCLUSIVE by James Bryce and Jon Clarke

    Costa del Sol -- Witnesses have come forward to claim that a series of low-flying military jets that awoke the Costa del Sol may have been chasing a UFO on April 14, 2012.

    The residents of Benahavis and Estepona – where a trio of fighter jets undertook their mysterious 5 am sortie on Easter Sunday – believe that the planes may have been tailing an “alien craft”.

    While the authorities refused to comment on the incident, the Olive Press has been inundated with calls and emails from concerned residents.

    One British reader said, “It was terrifying. They were clearly tailing this strange-looking craft. I cannot describe what it was, but it was long and thin and had flashing lights. It was definitely not a plane or helicopter. “It made a very strange sound and moved slowly before suddenly shooting off at top speed. It was an eerily humming sound, nothing I have ever witnessed before. “We have lived on various RAF bases in UK and abroad. It was the most bizarre sound, not easy to explain.

    The incident came just days before another mystery incident over Bath, in the UK, where locals claim to have seen a long thin-shaped craft chased by military jets. The Olive Press is now investigating if there could be any links between the two apparent UFO sightings. The midnight mystery left people fearing that one of the planes was going to crash or offering assistance for drug dealing or terrorism. “The helicopter could have been backing them up,” he insisted.

    No pilot in his right mind would fly low and at night in mountainous area for fun or to show off.”

    Meanwhile, Geoff Jones, a resident of the Costa de Sol who witnessed the unidentified aircraft flying ‘erratically’ around 5AM on Easter Sunday, insisted someone needed to get to the bottom of it. “Night exercise by any military flying operations are not authorized over built up areas, day or night,” he added. When contacted by the Olive Press, a spokesman for Malaga Airport’s operations centre said: “We can’t give any information about those types of flights.”

    UK/England Photo

    LONDON -- In the evening of April 1, 2012, I was with my girlfriend and we had been discussing paranormal events, so we went to the one location she was most unnerved by so as I can identify the feeling she had gotten many times before. I noticed a very bright red star-like object in the sky. I realized that it could not be Mars at all, for Mars was behind me! It then hit me that the red light this object was emitting was incredibly vivid and growing in intensity. I used my phone to take an image of the light as I noticed the object began moving and took this image. We watched as this red glowing object moved beneath the "Big Dipper" and close to Mars. It was moving away from the earth. I've seen a lot of craft before including spheres, triangles, and a saucer. I have a photo of what clearly looks like a cloaked saucer in mid flight with an energy field around it. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Biography

    Donald Howard Menzel

    Donald Howard Menzel by Babette Whipple
    Born April 11, 1901
    Florence, Colorado
    Died December 14, 1976
    Boston, Massachusetts
    Nationality United states
    Fields Astronomy, Astrophysics, Star Formation
    Institutions Lick Observatory, Harvard, Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
    Alma mater University of Colorado, University of Denver, Princeton

    Donald Howard Menzel (April 11, 1901 – December 14, 1976) was one of the first theoretical astronomers and astrophysicists in the US. He discovered the physical properties of the solar chromosphere, the chemistry of stars, the atmosphere of Mars, and the nature of gaseous neblulae.

    Born in Florence, Colorado in 1901 and raised in Leadville, he learned to read very early, and soon could send and receive messages in Morse code, taught by his father. He loved science and mathematics, collected ore and rock specimens, and as a teenager he built a large (and probably hazardous) chemistry laboratory in the cellar. He made a radio transmitter - no kits in those days - and qualified as a radio ham. He was an Eagle Scout, specializing in Cryptanalysis, as well as an outdoorsman, hiking and fly fishing throughout much of his life.

    At 16, he enrolled in the University of Denver to study chemistry. His interest in astronomy was aroused through a boyhood friend (Edgar Kettering), through observing the solar eclipse of June 8, 1918, and through observing the eruption of Nova Aquilae 1918 (V603 Aquilae). He graduated from the University of Denver in 1920 with an A.B. degree in chemistry and an A.M. degree in chemistry and mathematics in 1921. He also found summer positions in 1922, 1923, and 1924 as research assistant to Harlow Shapley at the Harvard College Observatory. At Princeton University he acquired a second A.M. degree in astronomy in 1923, and in 1924 a Ph.D. in astrophysics for which his advisor was Henry Norris Russell, who inspired his interest in theoretical astronomy. He married Florence Elizabeth Kreager on June 17, 1926 and had two daughters (Suzanne Kay and Elizabeth Ina). He received honorary A.M. and Sc.D. degrees from Harvard University in 1942 and the University of Denver in 1954 respectively. In 1965, Menzel was given the John Evans Award of the University of Denver.

    After teaching two years at the University of Iowa and Ohio State University, in 1926 he was appointed assistant Professor at Lick Observatory in San Jose CA. where he worked for several years. In 1932 he moved to Harvard, where he remained till his death.

    Menzel is renowned for traveling with expeditions to view solar eclipses to obtain scientific data. On 19 June 1936, he led the Harvard-MIT expedition to the steppes of Russia (at Ak Bulak in southwestern Siberia) to observe a total eclipse. For the 9 July 1945 eclipse, he directed the Joint U.S.-Canadian expedition to Saskatchewan, although they were clouded out. Menzel observed many total solar eclipses, often leading the expeditions, including Catalina California (10 September 1923, cloudy), Camptonville California (28 April 1930), Freyburg Maine (31 August 1932), Minneapolis-St. Paul Minnesota (30 June 1954), the Atlantic coast of Massachusetts (2 October 1959), northern Italy (15 February 1951), Orono Maine (20 July 1963, cloudy), Athens/Sunion Road, Greece (20 May 1966), Arequipa Peru (12 November 1966), Miahuatlan, south of Oaxaca, Mexico (7 March 1970), Prince Edward Island Canada (10 July 1972), and western Mauritania (30 June 1973), in addition to the other three mentioned above.

    In the late 1930s he built an observatory for solar research at Climax CO, using a telescope that mimicked a total eclipse of the sun, allowing him and his colleagues to study the sun's corona and to film the spouting flames, called prominences, emitted by the sun. His studies of spectra also added a great deal to the knowledge of the sun and stars.

    During World War ll Menzel was asked to join the Navy as Lieut. Commander, to head a division of intelligence, where he used his many-sided talents: deciphering enemy codes, improving radio-wave propagation by tracking the sun's emissions (like auroras) and their effects on long distance radio communications.

    From 1946-1948 he was the Vice President of the American Astronomical Society, becoming their President from 1954-1956. From 1964 to his death, Menzel was a U.S. State Department consultant for Latin American affairs. In 1955, Menzel worked with the US Navy with the rank of Commander studying the effect of the aurora on radio propagation for the Department of Defense (Menzel & Boyd, p. 60).

    Returning to Harvard after the war, he was appointed acting director of the Harvard Observatory in 1952, and was the full director from 1954 to 1966, when the observatory became an international center of radio astronomy. He retired from Harvard in 1971.

    One of Menzel's early acts as the Director was to cause lasting bitterness and feelings of betrayal and shock among a large section of astronomers when he evicted on short notice the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) from their headquarters and appropriated almost all of their endowment. The roughly $100,000 taken from the AAVSO's Pickering Endowment was used to fund Menzel's own solar research. Menzel's stated excuse for ejecting the AAVSO from their longtime (42 years) headquarters was that Building A was to be torn down, so the notice dated December 8, 1953 gave the AAVSO until January 1, 1954 to vacate their 384 square feet (35.7 m) of office space. (Building A still stands.) When the AAVSO was on the verge of getting a new headquarters at Boston University (BU), on January 6, 1954, the offer was withdrawn after the BU official was called by Menzel.

    Menzel initially performed solar research, but later concentrated on studying gaseous nebulae. His work with Lawrence Aller and James Gilbert Baker defined many of the fundamental principles of the study of planetary nebulae.

    He wrote the first edition (1964) of A Field Guide to the Stars and Planets, part of the Peterson Field Guides.

    In one of his last papers, Menzel concluded, based on his analysis of the Schwarzschild equations, that black holes do not exist, and he declared them to be a myth.

    In May 2001, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics hosted the "Donald H. Menzel: Scientist, Educator, Builder," a symposium in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Donald H. Menzel.

    Menzel and UFOs

    In addition to his academic and popular contributions to the field of astronomy, Menzel was a prominent skeptic concerning the reality of UFOs. He authored or co-authored three popular books debunking UFOs: Flying Saucers - Myth - Truth - History (1953), The World of Flying Saucers (1963, co-authored with Lyle G Boyd), and The UFO Enigma (1977, co-authored with Ernest H. Taves). All of Menzel's UFO books argued that UFOs are nothing more than misidentification of prosaic phenomena such as stars, clouds and airplanes; or the result of people seeing unusual atmospheric phenomena they were unfamiliar with. He often suggested that atmospheric hazes or temperature inversions could distort stars or planets, and make them appear to be larger than in reality, unusual in their shape, and in motion. In 1968, Menzel testified before the U.S. House Committee on Science and Astronautics - Symposium on UFOs, stating that he considered all UFO sightings to have natural explanations.

    He was perhaps the first prominent scientist to offer his opinion on the matter, and his stature doubtless influenced the mainstream and academic response to the subject. Perhaps Menzel's earliest public involvement in UFO matters was his appearance on a radio documentary directed and narrated by Edward R. Murrow in mid-1950. (Swords, 98)

    Menzel had his own UFO experience when he observed a 'flying saucer' while returning on 3 March 1955 from the North Pole on the daily Air Force Weather "Ptarmigan" flight. His account is in both Menzel & Boyd and Menzel & Taves. He later identified it as a mirage of Sirius, but Steuart Campbell claims that it was a mirage of Saturn.

    Majic Men Movie to Cover the Majestic 12 Mystery



    In the whirlwind of the alleged Roswell incident cover up lies a secret set of government documents that compiles a 12-man list of our nations finest scientists, military leaders, and government officials. These men were allegedly authorized by President Truman to investigate the Roswell incident, and were called the Majestic 12. The report of the Majestic 12 lurks in the shadows of UFO accounts, and its story woven through a web of top-secret memos, highly classified meetings, and clandestine operations. 

    Don Most, best remembered as Ralph from Happy Days, notions himself as an amateur ufologist. He is partnering with TV producer Bryce Zabel and Bridget Healey to produce a film surrounding the mystery of the Majestic 12, and the people who research it. Currently in the development stage, they hope this film will bring to light the mystery that surrounds this top secret government group. 

    Open Minds sat down with Don and Bryce at the latest International UFO Congress and got the inside scoop to the upcoming project.

    Roswell UFO: Granddaughter of Sheriff who saw Roswell debris


    Christine Tulk is the granddaughter of George Wilcox who was the Sheriff of Roswell, NM in 1947. She did not get to know her grandfather very well because he passed away before she was born. Her mother, sisters and grandmother would never mention anything about him to her about his involvement in the Roswell Crash. In this interview, Christine speaks to us about her experiences in discovering the truth about her grandfather, Sheriff George Wilcox.

    Hi all:

    Has there been any breakthrough as to the real identity of "Victor"? I have been hearing stories on the internet that "Victor" is none other than Robert Dean, a retired US Army command sergeant major who had been assigned to NATO's SHAPE in Paris in the 1960s where he reportedly held a Cosmic Top Secret clearance and also learned of a long-term study re UFO's "the Assessment" which was allegedly initiated in 1961. Please your informed replies!

    Kind regards.

    A Nuclear-Powered Drone? Fantasy. DIY Drones? Reality.

    Daniel Honan on April 4, 2012, 12:00 AM

    This is a tale of two drones. Or rather, two types of drones. One is the stuff of crazy science fiction. The other is fast becoming a reality. Now here's the twist: individuals are making DIY drones a reality while large government-sponsored researchers in some cases are the ones writing the science fiction. 

    What's the Big Idea?

    The DIY revolution is outlined in great detail Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler's new book, Abundance: Why the Future Will Be Much Better Than You Think. The authors point to Wired editor in chief Chris Anderson's burgeoning online DIY Drone movement, which is producing homebrew unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for as little as $300. One of the models, in fact, has 90 percent of the functionality as military grade drones. 

    As the Associated Press pointed out, the drop in drone prices over the last few years is closely connected to the ubiquity of smart phones. Think of your smart phone as an autopilot device: it can locate itself on a map and determine whether it is being held vertically or horizontally. It's the same computer chip used in drones. 

    What's the Significance?

    Drones have not only transformed 21st century warfare. They can be used by small groups or individuals who can now get access to places that were previously unaccessible. Occupy Wall Street, for instance, launched the Occucopter to "occupy the airspace" and monitor police activity. 

    Of course, police and security forces use drones as well, outfitted with license plate scanners and face recognition systems. But media outlets can also use drones to cast a wider surveillance net and keep the powers that be in check. You no longer need an expensive news helicopter. 

    There are also notable uses for drones in agriculture and biological research. For instance, drones can be used to map deforestation and detect dry patches in orchards. Drones can also be used by search and rescue squads, real estate agents and land surveyors, anti-whaling activists, filmmakers, cattle ranchers, not to mention hobbyists out to have some fun. 

    So what is holding back DIY drones as well as military drones?

    Both face the same problem, just on a different scale. If you carry out the analogy of the smart phone-as-drone, it is easy to understand that one of this technology's great shortcomings is battery life. The military drones have the same problem, and that is why the government has investigated the nuclear option. 

    "Faster, higher, deadlier: US plans nuclear drones"

    That was one of the many headlines that appeared this week after it was announced that scientists at the government research and development agency Sandia National Laboratories had developed plans for a nuclear-powered drone. This UAV would be capable of flying for months without refueling, and the project was was completed, at least on paper. You can read all about in this Project Accomplishment Summary (PDF). 

    According to the report, "the greatest shortfalls in UAV capabilities have been repeatedly identified as

    1) insufficient flight persistence or “hang time”

    2) marginal electrical power for running higher power avionics and payload systems, and 

    3) inadequate communications bandwidth and reach.

    The Sandia team investigated energy storage and power generation concepts that would most increase "UAV sortie duration from days to months while increasing available electrical power at least two-fold."

    The winning concept, of course, was nuclear. But you have to read between the lines in the report to understand that conclusion. The document does not mention the word "nuclear," but does mention concerns about "decommissioning and disposal."

    But don't worry too much. "The results will not be applied/implemented," the document concludes.  

    What Does the Future Hold?

    It is conceivable that unmanned, nuclear-powered drones could be developed in the future, but a number of serious engineering challenges would need to be overcome, and considerable risks set aside. 

    The fact of the matter is, drones don't have a great safety record. They crash a lot, and sometimes kill the wrong people. Worse yet, what if a nuclear-powered drone got into the hands of rogue states or terrorists? After all, we can't keep sensitive drone technology out of Iranian hands as it is. 

    So while nuclear-powered drones remain the stuff of science fiction, the growing DIY movement to hack the physical world is on the rise. And yet, at some point, the notion of an unmanned drone might be seen as passe. For instance, a Dutch company plans to bring a car to market in 2014 called the PAL-V (Personal Air and Land Vehicle), which uses "advanced gyrocopter technology" to fly.

    Watch the video of their demonstration here:


    A company called Terrafugia will unveil a rival flying car model at the New York Auto Show this week.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Alabama, Alaska, California, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and West Virginia.
     
    Sightings of UFOs were also reported in Australia, Canada, China, Indonesia, Jamaica, New Zealand, and England in the United Kingdom.

    The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. Under Project Blue Book, the US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years; and we continue this research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Special Reports

    Exempt from Disclosure

    The Black World of UFOs, 3rd edition

    In their book, “Exempt from Disclosure,” Collins who is a retired Air Force Captain and Doty who also served in the Air Force as a former agent with the Office of Special Investigations worked on projects and operations related to UFOs. The book presents important information about extraterrestrial visitation and how the government has kept the information secret from the public. The authors state they are accurately documenting specific events, places and people involved in many of the efforts to handle the visits by extraterrestrials. They provide some exciting and important information that fits much of the data I have been collecting. They tell the story of advanced spacecraft from another civilization being recovered by the military near Roswell N.M. making it clear that the U.S. was being visited by intelligent beings that were not from Earth. The intelligence situation was obviously difficult to discover what the visitor’s intentions were, how serious was the threat to the world, and alien capabilities

    President Truman created a top secret organization called “MJ-12” to manage the world changing situation. This discovery led to highly secret procedures to understand what these visitors’ intentions were, the extent of the threat posed to the world and the US, and how we could take advantage of their technology and knowledge. Under the amazing circumstances they apparently did an excellent job. I personally feel more could have been revealed to the public or at least much of the military and intelligence personnel. The book examines how these intelligence personnel handled the UFO challenge and dealt with the public and elected officials. The book claims contact with visitors occurred, including meetings and interactions between U.S. officials and representatives of this race of extraterrestrials.

    The U.S. Air Force and Navy both had important roles. Doty says, as an active-duty Air Force OSI agent he participated in many aspects of the Air Force’s projects related to UFO and extraterrestrial visitors. The Soviet Union was particularly interested in UFO activities and would pay exorbitant prices to find out what we knew. They apparently had many encounters themselves, and disinformation was designed for public and Soviet consumption. Many of the operations occurred at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico and Area 51 in Nevada.

    The book provides valuable information about the extraterrestrials and their technology and the threat they provide to the people of Earth. The book claims the Roswell crash was real and that some extraterrestrials lived after the crashes. ETs lived on Earth for many years and provided much valuable information and met with several Presidents. Allegedly there has been an exchange program, we have been to their planet and they have been here. They have provided us with advanced information and technology. There are about 200 intelligent sentient species scattered throughout the universe that the Ebens (ETs) are aware.

    The book alleges the aliens revealed that thousands of people have been abducted and taken aboard alien space craft; they have been examined, but never killed and always released. They were allowed to conduct some cattle mutilations. When humans die our souls travel around until they find a new home in a new physical body to animate. They have given us a warehouse full of wonderful technology that we just can’t figure out. We will soon be able to see aliens in space with new astronomical equipment and we want the public to be prepared. The Bush I Administration seemed prepared to release the information about the UFOs but backed down. The Ebens seem to be helping us and have helped against hostile aliens.

    The Propulsion System: The basic principles are simple in concept, but not in application (a very complex system says LANL) and why the prototypes never worked right, we still fly rockets. The technology of their UFOs was far in advance of U.S. engineering and physics knowledge. Materials used in the craft also seemed quite advanced. And, naturally, knowledge about weapons was an area of concern and investigation. Other technology used by extraterrestrial visitors was also of great interest.

    “Before answering your questions, you are assuming that ET crafts are made with our technology based on your questions. Many years ago, we made that same mistake (comment: prototypes that never worked right) and it took us several years to correct the mistake and start fresh from the drawing board. “Their” technology is nothing similar to ours. We do not utilize our physics or chemistry in a comparison analysis. We started from scratch and learned their principles of dynamics, physics, etc.

    This is a very factual exceptional book well worth reading.

    The Significance of the Bosnian Pyramid Discoveries

    These magnificent 12,000 years old structures may have been built with the help of extraterrestrials. Dr. Sam Semir Osmanagich reports that in April 2005, “I first traveled to the town of Visoko, 20 miles northwest from Sarajevo, and the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina. My attention was caught by two regularly shaped hills, which I later named the Bosnian Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. For thousands of years locals have considered those hills to be natural phenomena because they were covered by soil and vegetation. However, when I first saw their triangular faces, obvious corners and orientation toward the cardinal points, I knew that they had to be constructed by a force other than nature. Since I had been investigating pyramids for decades I knew that the pyramids found in China, Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador had the same type of soil and vegetation coverage.”

    In 2005 work was begun on this project and construction companies and geologists were paid to do core drilling and geo-morphological analysis. We then announced to the world, at the press conference, that the first pyramids in Europe had been discovered.

    Shortly thereafter we established the non-profit Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation and since that time the pyramid investigations in Bosnia have become the world’s largest inter-disciplinary archaeological project. We have spent over 340.000 man-hours in archaeological excavation, sample testing and radiocarbon dating in the period from 2005 to 2011. We determined that the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids consists of five pyramids discovered to date which I named: The Bosnian Pyramids of the Sun, Moon, Dragon, Mother Earth and Love. The site also includes a tumulus complex and a huge underground labyrinth.

    This discovery is historic and changes the knowledge of the early history of Europe for several reasons:

    1. These are the first pyramids discovered in Europe
    2. The site includes the largest pyramid structure in the world—The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is older and with its height of over 220 meters is much higher than the Great Pyramid of Egypt (147 meters).
    3. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun has, according to the Bosnian Institute for Geodesy, the most precise orientation towards cosmic north with the error of 0 degrees, 0 minutes and 12 seconds.
    4. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is completely covered by rectangular concrete blocks. The properties of the concrete, including extreme hardness (up to 133 MPs) and low water absorption (around 1%), are, according to the scientific institutions in Bosnia, Italy and France, far superior to modern concrete materials.
    5. The pyramids are covered by soil which is, according to the State Institute for Agro-pedology, approximately 12,000 years old. Radiocarbon dating from the paved terrace on Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, performed by Institute of Physics of Silesian Institute of Technology from Gliwice (Poland) confirmed that terrace was built 10.350 years ago (+/- 50 years). These finding confirm that the Bosnian pyramids are also the oldest known pyramids on the planet.
    6. Beneath the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids there is an extensive underground tunnel and chamber network which runs for a total of more than ten miles.
    7. Ceramic sculptures have been discovered in the underground labyrinth with a mass of up to 20,000 pounds which makes them the largest found so far from the ancient world.

    The list of the wonders in Bosnian archaeology does not end here. In the vicinity, we discovered the tallest tumulus in the World: 61 meter high. Its nearest competitor, Sillbury Hill in England is 60 meters high. The Bosnian tumulus consists of two-layer megalithic terraces, clay layers and artificial concrete layers.

    A team of physicists detected an energy beam coming through the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. The radius of the beam is 4.5 meters with a frequency of 28 kHz. The beam is continuous and its strength grows as it moves up and away from the pyramid. This phenomenon contradicts the known laws of physic and technology. This is the first proof of non-herzian technology on the Planet. It seems that the pyramid-builders created a perpetual motion machine a long time ago and this “energy machine” is still working.

    In the underground labyrinth, in 2010, we discovered three chambers and a small blue lake. Energy screening shows that the ionization level is 43 times higher than the average concentration outside which makes the underground chambers into “healing rooms”.

    Further electromagnetic detection in 2011 confirmed that levels of negative radiation through the Hartman, Curry and Schneider grids are equal to zero in the tunnels. There was no technical radiation (from power lines and/or other technology) found in the tunnels and no cosmic radioactivity. Ceramic sculptures are positioned over the underground water flows and the negative energy is transformed into positive. All of these experiments point to the underground labyrinth as one of the most secure underground constructions in the world and this makes it an ideal place for the body’s rejuvenation and regeneration.

    Two hundred years of Egyptology has not produced a satisfactory answer to the question of what the real purpose was for the oldest and most superior pyramids. In only six years, our research in Bosnia has applied inter-disciplinary scientific methods, to look at this complex through the physical, energetic and spiritual dimensions. We have had pioneering results which affects the entire sphere of knowledge and Pyramid Science. Our history is changing with each new discovery.

    Perhaps by changing our beginnings or learning to better understand our beginnings we can also change our present and our future for the better.

    Note: There is still final research needed on the validity of the Pyramids. They may help prove alien intervention because they were designed to facilitate the landing of UFOs on top the pyramids and provide them with electromagnetic energy or high intensity pyramidal energy. Ten thousand years ago humans were thought to be primitives and unable to organize to build pyramids or cities.

    India Cambay Underwater City

    INDIAcambia.gifThe remains of what has been described as a huge lost city may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history. Marine scientists say archaeological remains discovered 36 meters (120 feet) underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India could be over 9,000 years old. The vast city - which is five miles long and two miles wide - is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years. Debris recovered from the site - including construction material, pottery, sections of walls, beads, sculpture and human bones and teeth has been carbon dated and found to be nearly 9,500 years old. The city is believed to be even older than the ancient Harappan civilization, which dates back around 4,000 years. Author and film-maker Graham Hancock - who has written extensively on the uncovering of ancient civilizations [said,] "Cities on this scale are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia. Nothing else on the scale of the underwater cities of Cambay is known. There's a huge chronological problem in this discovery. It means that the whole model of the origins of civilization with which archaeologists have been working will have to be remade from scratch," he said.

    Note: Dozens of manmade complexes found under the ocean have been found, yet most archeologists are largely ignoring these finds as they don't fit the academic consensus.

    Many are predicting the end of the World in December of this Year.

    The World Will Not End!

    There are numerous predictions of the end of the world such as planet X, the Pole Shift, solar flares, even nuclear war. People have made up these stories based on partial information. I looked at the s.ky and saw no planet bigger than Mars or Venus heading this way. The Mayans happened to end their calendar on December 21, 2012, but calendars end every year and we’re still here. Magnetic poles do shift and have fairly regularly in the past but the movement is fairly slow and changes the orientation of the pole to various places such as into the Pacific Ocean. Climates change and when the North Pole moved into Canada and much of North America had an ice age with glaciers extending into the US and Europe. Movement of the Poles has its effects, but it does not cause the end of the Earth.

    Climate changes and earthquakes will occur, we already have record tornadoes but life on Earth will not end. The Bible whose predictions have been virtually a 100% accurate has prophesied that the days before the return of Jesus will be rough times. Bible prophecy has been amazingly accurate about specific kingdoms, times, people, places, even names, all of which came true. Thousands of scientific predictions have been proven false considering the Bibles track record it should be given great importance for successfully predicting the future. The last book of the Bible Revelation predicts Plague, Earthquakes, Fire, Hailstorms, Famine, Meteor storm, Lack of drinking water, and war. Eventually the prophecy leads up to the antichrist assuming world domination with his false prophet overseeing the one-world religion. The antichrist rules the world for a period of time until the battle of Armageddon. At this point, Jesus Christ returns to earth and destroys the armies of the antichrist. The world will not end!

    Iran Signals Compromise on Uranium Enrichment

    Iran's top nuclear official has signaled that Iran could compromise on uranium enrichment by eventually only enriching to the low level needed for power. Fereidoon Abbasi, head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, told state television that Iran doesn't need uranium enriched above the 20 percent level needed for the research reactor which produces medical isotopes. Once there's enough supply, he said, enrichment could be dropped it to the 3.5 percent level needed for nuclear power. Weapons-grade uranium is more than 90 percent enriched. Iran has put a North Korea Enrichment Plant shown here buried deep under a mountain.

    "Based on our needs and once the required fuel is obtained, we will decrease the production and we may even totally shift it to the 3.5 percent," Abbasi said, according to Iran's Press TV. "We are going to produce and store [20 percent enriched uranium] to some extent in order to provide fuel for Tehran's [research] reactor for a few years or to predict fuel needs of another research reactor," he said.

    The comments come days before Iran begins a new round of talks on Saturday in Istanbul with the so-called P5+1, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany. The last round of talks fell apart in January 2011. Since then, the United States and European Union have imposed strict economic sanctions and an oil embargo on Iran. The P5+1 nations are expected to ask for Iran to shut down the Fordow enrichment facility buried deep under a mountain as well as to stop production and ship out uranium enriched to 20 percent, according to a report in the New York Times. But comments today by Iran's foreign minister raised doubts over any concessions.

    On Sunday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad defended Iran's nuclear program, saying it would not go beyond the terms of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and lashing out at the countries opposed to the program.
    "Many of these very countries that are seeking to stop the progress of the Islamic Republic themselves have atomic weapons and they have also created the Zionist regime [Israel] and equipped it with the atomic bomb," he said.

    The deployment of the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise along with the Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group marks only the fourth time in the past decade that the US has deployed two carrier strike groups into the Persian Gulf. Tactically it is an important move since it is unlikely that both carriers could be sunk at the same time and the full devastating response of one carrier with more than sixty aircraft would be anticipated. Most are F-18E Super Hornets that carry an internal 20 mm gun and can carry air –to-air missiles and air-to-surface weapons.

    Sightings in the United States

    Alabama Disc

    Honoraville -- I stopped to snap a picture of a car accident on April 9, 2012. I came back to the house and was looking over the photo after showing it to my folks. The first shot shows nothing unusual, but then above the tree line a minute later close to the wire it caught the object. Upon closer exam I found what looks like a grey bottom on a circular in shape and a disturbance around the object. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Alaska Colored Lights

    On March 20, 2012, at 05:56 AM, I was sitting in my truck looking west and caught a very white bright orb/UFO in the north at daybreak. It was heading south slowly just wobbling and flying above the ocean inland (very low) taking its time. As I got out of my truck and started to video the orb winked out. This UFO was very silent, and all you could hear was the small waves hitting the shoreline. It reappeared at 6 AM, low once again to the ocean heading south. There was a tinge of yellow with white now. Once again, I got out of my truck and proceeded to get videos and pictures with my Nikon digital camera. The UFO stuck around for few minutes and flashed red, white, orange and yellow and start to accelerate and ascend to the south silently and disappeared. As I headed home exhaustion and fatigue would overcome me. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     California Underwater Lights (ie. USOs)


    PACIFICA -- Two very large, glowing objects were observed by a large group of witnesses on March 24, 2012, in the Pacific Ocean roughly ¾ mile from the coastline at 6:30 Pm. The evening sky was 100% overcast with no direct sunlight anywhere in sight. The glowing objects appeared as sharp ovals from this distance. But it was clear that the actual shapes were discs and were submerged in the ocean at an unknown depth.

    A group of witnesses stopped to watch the two submerged objects that were moving with indistinct patterns, but not resembling a worldly vehicle such as a submarine. The lights continued to project into the late evening until about 9 pm, well past sundown. At some juncture during the event, a passing ship approached the objects in an attempt to investigate. The ship then quickly veered away from the objects in an apparent evasive maneuver to avoid confrontation. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Chico -- Sitting in our backyard on April 7, 2012, I noticed a UFO flying at a distance through the trees in my neighbor’s yard. I thought it was too bright and orange to be a plane and noticed a second UFO, exact same color and size, flying slightly behind the first. I asked my wife, “What the hell is that? They flew a little closer, slowed and then stopped completely. They were very bright and very orange and hovered over area for about two minutes, and then faded and disappeared one by one. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Florida Light Triangle


    JUNO BEACH -- My husband watching TV saw an orange pulsating light coming from south to north out the window on April 3, 2012. He went out with camera and observes the light hovering and disappears. Took a short movie but quality is poor. Then a second similar light appeared from same direction that also disappears. Lights had no noise and were bright orange and pulsating. I’m used to aircraft but this was completely different with much larger silent objects. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Illinois Triangle

    When I went to bed last night, about 12:15 AM, I saw a very bright object in the sky to the NE. I thought it was strange because the moon was bright, so the stars were hardly visible, but it was bright and too large to be an airplane.

    The object was triangular with the point facing straight up, and glowed like several stars close together in a triangular configuration. It was much brighter than the Seven Sisters constellation. On closer look, there were four green lights making a square in the center of the widest spot, with two red lights at the bottom of the triangle that came on and off sporadically and independently. Occasionally a red light would flicker in other areas of the triangle. The lights were very close together and it just sort of hovered in one spot. Occasionally a bright white search type light would come on and scan down toward the ground. I lay down in bed again and continued to watch it hover over the same spot. I looked at the clock at 12:46 AM, just before I fell asleep. I drew the object with PowerPoint. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Kansas Object

    Coffeyville --It was 6:40 AM on April 8, 2012, when I stopped at intersection facing east. I decided to take a picture of the sunrise sky.

    When I down loaded into my computer, I saw this.

    Montana Blob

     

    BUTTE – I take allot of pictures, from my house. This particular one at first looked like a normal picture until something caught my eye. I tried to explain this, to no avail. There is nothing above our house. I don’t know if it was hovering or slowly passing by. It was just caught on my photonic. No one has ever had any answers for these... Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Nevada Object near the Moon


    FREELY -- I saw three UFOs about 10,000 feet altitude at around 2 pm on April 4, 2012, They were all on top of the other, maybe 800 to 1000 feet apart. Bright like an intense Halogen beam. The lowest one made a quick right turn and flew into a cloud. The next one up moved down to the first ones position and then made a quick right turn and followed the first. The third light moved down and had a trail of light behind, until it moved into the position of the last light and flew into a cloud. Minutes later, the only cloud in the sky disappeared!

    Later that night, I observed a small round pulsating light near by the moon that I took this video of. I am an US Navy veteran, and I know what I see. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New Jersey -- Something Weird Damien J. H. writes, My father is a truck driver and is awake, driving, and delivering at all hours of the night/early morning. He comes home after a 14 hour day and says to me, and I quote: " I'm telling you, last night March 30, 2012, I saw something really weird. I'm driving along, down Route 322, and I see this little white-orange light. It starts kind of falling, real slow-like, towards the earth, I got to pull over and film this. ' Then four more show up and they're all falling! They're leaving a white trail behind them, and as they're getting closer, they start to plume out into this big shape where the white orb used to be and then, they were gone.

    Later while in bed just before getting up, a light turns on and is coming through my window. What's out there at 4 am, and I turn and there, RIGHT above me, outside the window...probably about 7 feet away, 10 feet up, is a light, shining in. It was a pretty big light, you know? There was no noise and the light wasn't shaking and this light looked CLOSE. It was piercing bright-white in the center and had this blue glow around it pointing right at me. But in a matter of seconds, it SHOT off to the right and it was gone. I looked for a ladder, looked for prints, and checked the roof...nothing... So, what was that? http://www.reddit.com/r/UFOs/comments/ri4qe/possible_UFO_sighting_03272012_via_new_jersey/

    PORT MURRAYI was taking photos around home on April 7th, 2012, and when I put the pictures on my computer, I noticed a weirdly-shaped orb in one of them. My friend said, “It looked like a cigar-shaped UFO and that I should submit it to MUFON.” The orb is shaped really strangely, and I wanted to submit it.

    Rensselaer Falls -- I am a beginning photography student and my instructor ordered us to take numerous pictures on March 20, 2012. I had been outside for some time and spotted a cloud that I wanted to capture. I took two images of the cloud at 4:51 pm, the first shows just cloud. I zoomed out and took another picture and something strange appeared. I was hoping someone skilled might be able to tell me what the image is. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    North Carolina Light

    An o utside bobbing Object "appeared" about a quarter mile away a few hundred feet above our house on April 3, 2012. It glowed red and orange and turned SE and drifted for a minute then disappeared, only to re-appear back at the site of original sight. One minute later and again, drifted SE and was gone in less than a minute.

    Ohio Tarp over Disc Trailer

    Dayton -- Riding east on I-70 just outside of Dayton on April 5, 2012, there was a tractor trailer with an unusual load on the trailer covered with a tarp. It was surrounded by four police vehicles.

    As a trucker you don't see police cars escorting a truck that much with two pilot cars also saw a black SUV in the traffic. Took pictures figured I would share them.

    Greeneville -- Pauline E. Petsel writes, “I have sent you quite a bit of stuff that hasn't been posted. Should I send more? I'm including one (of many) images from a couple nights ago, in case you are interested. The top one was by itself and then I got another with two images, one white, and one color.

    Dear Pauline, I will try to show my readers your interesting photos. I would appreciate details concerning your better shots such as date, time, location, size, altitude, speed, etc.

    BRISTOL -- We were sitting in the parking lot on April 6, 2012, across the street from Nevada Bobs about 9:20 pm, when we saw a bright orange spherical object to the right of the moon. The object would grow and shrink. It looked like Jupiter does in the night sky but only orange. It would also stop and hover, and then move and stop again, while changing shape. Then, it seemed to disappear within itself. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Texas UFOs Filmed from Plane

    DALLAS/Ft.Worth: Two UFOs were filmed from a plane on March 21, 2012. Video is courtesy of Ann and Jennifer Thomson who just wanted to film Fort Worth.

    The first object passes through the middle of the screen. The second object passes through the bottom right of the screen.

    After a YouTube viewer noticed the second UFO in the bottom right corner I decided to make this second video with the second object slowed down and enhanced.

    Special Thanks to crazybreakingnews and by JDQuantum.

    Big Spring -- I was taking photographs for a project involving collecting images of our local downtown buildings on April 4, 2011. I did not observe anything mysterious that day and was photographs of an abandoned transfer and storage property. Later that evening, I reviewed this image and noticed an unusual object above the building. I immediately knew it was a UFO as I use a fully functioning digital camera to take my photos.

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Australia Moving Light

    Surfers Paradise, Queensland --We were at a mate’s 21st birthday party on the gold coast suburb of Talai at 4:30 am, on February 12, 2012, and noticed an incredibly bright light in the sky. We had constant cloud cover all night, and this object appeared to be under the clouds and maneuvering. I was quite intoxicated, so I had to further analyze the situation for ten minutes before I called my friends out to see. One friend brought a video camera out and we filmed it until it was no longer visible. It flew a few hundred meters above me that gave me a great feeling of honor. I’m SURE it was an intelligently controlled craft, not of human origin. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Canada Discs

    Etobicoke, ONTARIO -- I was watching TV when I looked up at a very bright strange light on April 5, 2011. I watched it hover for 20 minutes. I called my son and he looked and said, “It was strange We got my binoculars and went out into my yard as it pivoted and hovered. The bottom looked like a seven pointed star as shown in the drawing. It had three bright beams of light coming straight down for a good hour. It flew northwest and was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    China UFO Over Peking

    Peking –A flying object appears between skyscrapers of the commercial zone in Peking. The witness who took the photograph used his cellular telephone. “I pressed the button and what I obtained was the image of a UFO.” Many have been surprised of the clarity of the object that projects as a reflection. It is not the first time that UFOs have been reported over Peking. The image is controversial. Thanks to Jose Antonio Mora Garcia joseanUFOgrupo

    New Zealand Calling

    Rick P writes, “Thanks for another brilliant publication this week. As I have revealed there are UFO patterns becoming evident, such as object forms, accidental picture captures, and daylight images of the objects while observing points of interest...i.e., planes, unusual occurrences’ i.e., air shows, all invisible to the “unaided eye". My suspicion is that, those objects over Adelaide, New Zealand, and Portugal are surveillance tools. I don`t know who they belong to, I hope they are ours, (US). The giveaway is the interest of their controller/operators at some super base, showing a human interest. Looking at aircraft, such as the many times that they have been seen around vintage air shows...their C/O should be made aware of what these troops are using government property for. From New Zealand, Rick P

    A strange unknown object has been was seen over the skies in New Zealand and reported on April 7, 2011. It remains unclear whether the object was a comet, a meteor, an asteroid, a piece of space junk, or something else... According to some witnesses it was a very bright, spectacular light, most probably a meteor, but the opinions vary. http://www.messagetoeagle.com/

    UK/ England Bright Object

    WEST KENNET -- Chasing UFO's is my hobby. Last Week we had great weather in the UK and using this opportunity I decided to sky watch on March 30, 2011. I was on my way home from my camping and was walking down from Tan Hill when I saw this bright object in the field down below. I realized that this object was moving around the field in random direction, so I thought it was maybe some kind of plastic bag flying around with the wind. I pulled out my video camera, at 12:15 PM, on a foggy cloudy day. I was about 250 meters above sea level as I shot the video in a mixture of sun and thin clouds. This condition in photographic terms is called spread light. I found the farm building and used it as an orientation point to zoom in. This object looked like it melted out from my view, perhaps plummeted into the ground? Thanks to MUFON CMS Ken Pfeifer MUFON NJ www.worldUFOphotos.org

    Q&A: The Anthropology of Searching for Aliens

    The Allen Telescope Array, an interferometry project dedicated to SETI and radio astronomy in Hat Creek, California, at sunset. Image:

    Before we can understand an alien civilization, it might be useful to understand our own.

    To help in this task, anthropologist Kathryn Denning of York University in Toronto, Canada studies the very human way that scientists, engineers and members of the public think about space exploration and the search for alien life.

    From Star Trek to SETI, our modern world is constantly imagining possible futures where we dart around the galaxy engaging with bizarre alien races. Denning points out that when people talk about these futures, they often invoke the past. But they frequently seem to have a poor understanding of history.

    For instance, in September at the 100 Year Starship Conference — a symposium created by DARPA for thinking about long-term spaceflight goals — Denning noted that the conference was framed as an extension of old traditions of exploration, for example mentioning Ferdinand Magellan as an exemplary hero who circumnavigated the globe. Not only did Magellan not circumnavigate the globe (he was dismembered in the Philippines before finishing the task), his mission was not entirely laudable.

    “It’s easy to forget that it’s also a story of slavery, war, betrayal, hardship, violence, and death — not just to those who signed up for the journey, but a lot of innocent bystanders,” Denning said during a talk March 30 at the Contact Conference, an annual meeting dedicated to speculation about SETI and space exploration. The misuse of the past matters when thinking about the future, she added, because it deludes people, giving them a poor understanding of how history actually moves.

    Wired spoke to Denning about contact with extraterrestrials, the rhetoric of the Space Age, and what it means to be human in the universe.

    Wired: What does the field of anthropology bring to thinking about space exploration and SETI?

    Kathryn Denning: Anthropologists are good at looking at discourses, and the stories that people tell to structure their lives and their behavior. So there are anthropologists working on the discourse surrounding interstellar flight. And anthropologists have always worked on the phenomenon of UFO abductions and aliens on Earth and that sort of stuff.

    With respect to SETI, one of the main contributions is just grounding all of that speculation about other civilizations in actual physical data. In terms of civilization or civilizations, we only have one example — Earth.

    And there’s a lot of data here, which has been very poorly mined so far. If people are drawing generalizations about civilizations elsewhere in the universe that don’t even hold here on Earth, then maybe we should throw them out.

    Wired: What are some instances of wrong ideas about civilization that get invoked in talking about extraterrestrials?

    Denning: I think one good example is the variable of L, the lifetime of civilizations, which dominates the Drake equation. [An estimate of the number of intelligent extraterrestrials that could exist in our galaxy.]

    The speculation on this has been frankly goofy sometimes. I mean you can make up basically any value of L that you like and justify it in some way. So people say we should try to use Earth’s data to look at it. We should ask what really does cause civilizations to collapse or revert to a lower order of complexity or technological regime.

    And, well, we’re still working that one out actually. We have so much work to do and I think that’s important for people to understand that our models of civilization here on Earth are not as solid as popular culture frequently assumes them to be.

    Similarly, many people hold outdated ideas regarding scenarios of contact. We have our iconic case studies, such as Columbus landing in the Americas or Cortez and the Aztecs. But most of those have been revamped with additional historical work in even just the last 30 or 40 years.

    So when I hear that standard model of Columbus or Cortez, frankly I want to roll my eyes. For example [Steven] Hawking says — interminably and repeatedly — that when Columbus showed up in the Americas, well, that didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans. And therefore we should similarly be worried about trying to attract the attention of an alien civilization.

    The problem is that it tends to misrepresent Earth’s history. These stories get invoked in models of contact with an alien society, but it’s a biased retelling of Earth’s history and it’s usually not a very good one.

    The underlying narrative there is that it went poorly for the Native Americans because they were the inferior civilization. And, by extension, it would go poorly for us because the other party would be the superior civilization. But that simply wasn’t the case for the Native Americans.

    One of the reasons I do the work I do is to try and have people get the history a little bit straighter.

    Wired: There is an oft-heard narrative for alien contact: after we find a signal, it would revolutionize everything, and humanity would put aside their differences and come together as one. How do you take that narrative as an anthropologist?

    Denning: One way to read that, in the most general sense, is that it’s a narrative that makes us feel better.

    One of the things that astronomy and space exploration in the 20th century has done is force us to confront the universe in a way that we never did before. We had to start understanding that, yeah, asteroids impact the earth and can wipe out a vast proportion of life, and our planet is a fragile spaceship Earth.

    I think this has given us this sort of kind of cosmic anxiety. And it would make us feel a whole lot better if we had neighbors and they were friendly and they could enlighten us.

    One of the things that runs through the whole SETI discussion is our problems with technology. There is an inherent assumption that the equipment needed for communication across interstellar space would necessarily evolve in tandem with weapons of mass destruction. Therefore any society that survived long enough to make contact with us would have solved their technological problems.

    I think that’s a very hopeful take on it. These stories of contact and what it would do for us, they’ve emerged in concert with these anxieties about the universe and questions about our technology. I think in some way it’s almost like a coping mechanism.

    Wired: In terms of space exploration, you’ve said that it’s like we’re entering a new Space Age. Why do you say that and what does it mean?

    Denning: I think the biggest difference from the past is the role of corporations. Obviously nation-states have always used contractors, but they’re now achieving a degree of independence that is unprecedented.

    When you have private companies that are planning on flying not just to the moon but also to Mars, that’s new and that’s different. We don’t have the government systems in place to deal with that sort of stuff because the outer space treaty and all our international agreements are geared toward nation states.

    There are new legal discourses emerging but nothing moves as fast as private enterprise. It’s been specifically set up to move quickly, so nothing moves as fast as, say, the X prize.

    Wired: The 1950s/60s Space Age often invoked the rhetoric of colonization or frontierism in thinking about their goals. How do these ideas play out in modern space exploration?

    Denning: The ideological stages of colonization are still well underway. As soon as you have technology on another world, that constitutes a de facto claim of some kind. So, in a way, everyone watching Spirit and Opportunity are watching Mars through these robot’s eyes.

    That’s not just an interesting kind of little jaunt; it’s a way of making Mars not only human but also American. When you’re naming features on other worlds after people here, these things constitute claims.

    For example, NASA renamed the Mars Pathfinder lander the “Carl Sagan Memorial Station.” Any archeologist or anthropologist will tell you that one of the most effective ways of colonizing territory, at least ideologically, is through your dead.

    Wired: Is there something you’d like to see as the narrative of the new Space Age?

    Denning: I’m going to borrow a term here from a scholar named Bill Kramer. He spoke at the 100-Year Starship Conference and he suggested that instead of boldly going, we humbly go.

    To me that really encapsulates it. Instead of getting out there as quickly as possible and using the systems that we used here on Earth, like extracting resources as quickly as possible in order to fuel whatever it is that we’re trying to do. What if we went instead with a collaborative, conservationist stewardship in mind?

    What if instead of making messes that we don’t know how to clean up, what if we slowed down a little bit? Because the urgency is manufactured. I mean, I want to see space continue to be explored. It’s cool, and there’s stuff out there that we would like to know.

    It doesn’t have to be the answer to all of our needs. Sure, we can harvest sunlight from solar arrays in orbit around the Earth but that’s going to have its own technological problems and geopolitical implications.

    But the main problem with energy and resources here on Earth isn’t always that we don’t have enough: it’s that the distribution is unequal, and simply harvesting more is not going to resolve that. Chances are it’s just going to continue to increase inequity, and that doesn’t work well for anyone.

    I think what everybody should be learning is that these immense disparities cause profound instabilities, which you have to continue to have to deal with. So I just don’t see it as the answer.

    Space colonization is held up as being the natural next stage in our social evolution. Not only that, it’s an absolute necessity for the survival of the species. But if we are our own existential threat, then how does that follow? Wherever we go, there we are.

    So the suggestion that ever increasing technology is the solution to problems that have been created by our technology is barking mad.

    Wired: In some sense, we have a deterministic view of history when it comes to space exploration: We will go from airplanes to spaceships to conquering the galaxy. Where does that narrative come from and what do you see as some of the downsides of it?

    Denning: I think it comes from two places. One is a specific version of history that’s quite progressivist and techno-philic. It’s a version of history that says we just increase in our energy consumption, we increase in our complexity and we increase our goodness. It all ratchets up together, and it’s a kind of Singularity argument.

    But it’s combined with this fundamentally apocalyptic view that the current order of things will one day be superseded by another. That’s kind of a Judeo-Christian thing. And it’s sort of a funny coincidence that the future is up there [points skyward]. In many popular space narratives, the heavens and Heaven really swap out. It sounds pretty glib but it’s so frequently suggested that it’s hard to dismiss.

    The idea is that longevity – immortality, in fact — the future and our destiny are all up there. And there’s simply no logical reason that should be the case. We have no evidence suggesting we can live anywhere for long periods of time other than on this planet. In fact, the evidence is steadily accumulating that’s it’s going to be really hard to do anything else.

    We have problems with bone loss and blindness. Plus we have no evidence that we can reproduce safely in space. These are fairly big stumbling blocks and so this vision of a happy shiny future in space, it’s just so mythic.

    Wired: Do you see that as changing, do you think people are coming to understand the problems with the previous narratives?

    Denning: I think some are and this is one of the glories of humanity. But we’ll always have a tremendous diversity of opinion.

    You’re always going to have these people who think Heaven and the heavens are interchangeable. And they’re going to be looking toward the stars for all kinds of religious or quasi-religious purposes.

    Then you’re going to have the extension of the planetary protection mode of thinking. The people who are fundamentally thinking about environmentalism and stewardship and inequity. And then you’re going to have the people interested in militarization, and so on.

    You’re always going to have this diversity of viewpoints, of motivations, and behaviors, and I mean: Welcome to Earth.

    Wired: You write in a paper (.pdf) that someone in “the physical sciences might say ‘aha, here you have X which, by analogy, means that you must have Y, which means you have Z.’” On the other hand, “a scholar in the human sciences will often not venture past X.”

    Denning: Right, we rarely get as far as Z. Most of the time, anthropology is not working as explicitly with a predictive model, it’s a much more descriptive model.

    Wired: How do you see that difference between the physical and social sciences play out in the SETI discourse?

    Denning: I think there’s been a lot of interesting discussion around the question of whether or not decipherment of an extraterrestrial signal would be possible.

    Anthropologists tend to assume the answer is, basically, no. Unless you’re in direct contact, it would be very difficult to establish enough common language. Whereas the physicists and mathematicians tend to say, ‘Well all you need is math.’

    And then the anthropologists laugh and it goes on. Maybe that tells you more about the various disciplines than about whether or not contact is possible, but that’s an entertaining and interesting problem.

    Wired: What do anthropologists say when they look at the enterprise of SETI? That is, what does it say about us as humans that we are searching for others like ourselves in the universe?

    Denning: It’s an interesting question and you can look at it in different ways. In one sense, its just the extension of a long tradition on thinking about what might be out there, which has just gone through a new technological manifestation.

    Some people ask me: When did we first start thinking that there might be extraterrestrial life? And my reply is: When did we start thinking that there might not be? The sky has always been very busy, and the default position has always been that it’s populated. That doesn’t mean anything but that ideological substrate has always been there.

    Only 200 years ago, we thought there could be people on the moon. Then, we got a good look at the moon and saw, well there’s no Lunarians there. And then there were the Martians — Lowell and all that — and it wasn’t very long ago, less than 100 years ago. As our range of vision keeps on moving outwards, the aliens keep on moving outwards too. And that’s one way you can look at SETI; it’s the logical trajectory of an idea that’s always been around.

    And, of course, you can look at it within a religious framework. Our 20th century western culture includes Christianity and beings populating the Heavens. But anthropologically speaking, SETI also could be seen as being a reaction to the collapse of traditional religion.

    In a universe where you’re no longer expecting God to provide the order, we are forced to ask: where is the order? Where’s the sense to it all and what are we then a part of?

    Dyatlov Pass incident - Most Bizarre Unsolved UFO Case 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5KmbuSrqEk&feature=g-vrec&context=G2f6c221RVAAAAAAAAAA

    Dyatlov Pass incident

     

    The Dyatlov Pass incident resulted in the deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains on the night of February 2, 1959. It happened on the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (Холат Сяхл) (a Mansi name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). The mountain pass where the incident occurred has since been named Dyatlov Pass (Перевал Дятлова) after the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov (Игорь Дятлов). The lack of eyewitnesses has inspired much speculation. Soviet investigators determined only that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths. Access to the area was barred for skiers and other adventurers for three years after the incident.[1] The chronology of the incident remains unclear because of the lack of survivors.[2][3]

    Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot into heavy snow and a temperature of −30°C. Although the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue.[1] Their clothing, when tested, was found to be highly radioactive.[1]

    [edit] Background

    A group was formed for a ski trek across the northern Urals in Sverdlovsk Oblast (Свердло́вская о́бласть). The group, led by Igor Dyatlov, consisted of eight men and two women. Most were students or graduates of Ural Polytechnical Institute (Уральский Политехнический Институт, УПИ), now Ural State Technical University:

    1. Igor Alekseievich Dyatlov (Игорь Алексеевич Дятлов), the group's leader, born January 13, 1936
    2. Zinaida Alekseievna Kolmogorova (Зинаида Алексеевна Колмогорова), born January 12, 1937
    3. Ludmila Alexandrovna Dubinina (Людмила Александровна Дубинина), born January 11, 1936
    4. Alexander Sergeievich Kolevatov (Александр Сергеевич Колеватов), born November 16, 1934
    5. Rustem Vladimirovich Slobodin (Рустем Владимирович Слободин), born January 11, 1936
    6. Yuri Alexeievich Krivonischenko (Юрий Алексеевич Кривонищенко), born February 7, 1935
    7. Yuri Nikolaievich Doroshenko (Юрий Николаевич Дорошенко), born January 12, 1938
    8. Nicolai Vasilievich (Vladimirovich?) Thibault-Brignol (Николай Васильевич (Владимирович?) Тибо-Бриньоль), born June 5, 1935
    9. Alexander Alexandrovich Zolotariov (Александр Александрович Золотарёв), born February 2, 1921
    10. Yuri Yefimovich Yudin (Юрий Ефимович Юдин), born 1937

    The goal of the expedition was to reach Otorten (Отортен), a mountain 10 kilometers north of the site of the incident. This route, at that season, was estimated as "Category III", the most difficult. All members were experienced in long ski tours and mountain expeditions.

    The group arrived by train at Ivdel (Ивдель), a city at the center of the northern province of Sverdlovsk Oblast on January 25. They then took a truck to Vizhai (Вижай) - the last inhabited settlement so far north. They started their march toward Otorten from Vizhai on January 27. The next day, one of the members (Yuri Yudin) was forced to go back because of illness.[1] The group now consisted of nine people.

    Diaries and cameras found around their last camp made it possible to track the group's route up to the day preceding the incident. On January 31, the group arrived at the edge of a highland area and began to prepare for climbing. In a woody valley they cached surplus food and equipment that would be used for the trip back. The following day (February 1), the hikers started to move through the pass. It seems they planned to get over the pass and make camp for the next night on the opposite side, but because of worsening weather conditions, snowstorms and decreasing visibility, they lost their direction and deviated west, upward towards the top of Kholat Syakhl. When they realized their mistake, the group decided to stop and set up camp there on the slope of the mountain.

    [edit] The search

    It had been agreed beforehand that Dyatlov would send a telegraph to their sports club as soon as the group returned to Vizhai (Вижай). It was expected that this would happen no later than February 12, but when this date had passed and no messages had been received, there was no reaction—delays of a few days were common in such expeditions. Only after the relatives of the travelers demanded a rescue operation did the head of the institute send the first rescue groups, consisting of volunteer students and teachers, on February 20.[1] Later, the army and police forces became involved, with planes and helicopters being ordered to join the rescue operation.

    On February 26, the searchers found the abandoned and badly damaged tent on Kholat Syakhl. A chain of footprints could be followed, leading down toward the edge of nearby woods (on the opposite side of the pass, 1.5 km north-east), but after 500 meters they were covered with snow. At the forest edge, under a large old cedar, the searchers found the remains of a fire, along with the first two bodies, those of Yuri Krivonischenko and Yuri Doroshenko, shoeless and dressed only in their underwear. Between the cedar and the camp the searchers found three more corpses—Dyatlov, Zina Kolmogorova and Rustem Slobodin—who seemed to have died in poses suggesting that they were attempting to return to the tent.[1] They were found separately at distances of 300, 480 and 630 meters from the tree.

    Searching for the remaining four travelers took more than two months. They were finally found on May 4, under four meters of snow, in a ravine in a stream valley further into the wood from the cedar tree.

    [edit] Investigation

    A legal inquest had been started immediately after finding the first five bodies. A medical examination found no injuries which might have led to their deaths, and it was concluded that they had all died of hypothermia. One person had a small crack in his skull, but it was not thought to be a fatal wound.

    An examination of the four bodies which were found in May changed the picture. Three of them had fatal injuries: the body of Thibeaux-Brignolle had major skull damage, and both Dubunina and Zolotarev had major chest fractures. According to Dr. Boris Vozrozhdenny, the force required to cause such damage would have been extremely high. He compared it to the force of a car crash. Notably, the bodies had no external wounds, as if they were crippled by a high level of pressure. One woman was found to be missing her tongue.[1] There had initially been some speculation that the indigenous Mansi people might have attacked and murdered the group for encroaching upon their lands, but investigation indicated that the nature of their deaths did not support this thesis; the hikers' footprints alone were visible, and they showed no sign of hand-to-hand struggle.[1]

    Although the temperature was very low (around −25° to −30°C) with a storm blowing, the dead were only partially dressed. Some of them had only one shoe, while others had no shoes or wore only socks.[1] Some were found wrapped in snips of ripped clothes that seemed to have been cut from those who were already dead. However, up to 25 percent of hypothermia deaths are associated with so-called "Paradoxical undressing".[4] This typically occurs during moderate to severe hypothermia, as the person becomes disoriented, confused, and combative. They may begin discarding their clothing, which, in turn, increases the rate of heat loss.[citation needed]

    Journalists reporting on the available parts of the inquest files claim that it states:

    • Six of the group members died of hypothermia and three of fatal injuries.
    • There were no indications of other people nearby apart from the nine travelers on Kholat Syakhl, nor anyone in the surrounding areas.
    • The tent had been ripped open from within.
    • The victims had died 6 to 8 hours after their last meal.
    • Traces from the camp showed that all group members left the camp of their own accord, on foot.
    • To dispel the theory of an attack by the indigenous Mansi people, Dr. Boris Vozrozhdenny stated that the fatal injuries of the three bodies could not have been caused by another human being, "because the force of the blows had been too strong and no soft tissue had been damaged".[1]
    • Forensic radiation tests had shown high doses of radioactive contamination on the clothes of a few victims.[1]

    The final verdict was that the group members all died because of a "compelling unknown force". The inquest ceased officially in May 1959 as a result of the "absence of a guilty party". The files were sent to a secret archive, and the photocopies of the case became available only in the 1990s, with some parts missing.[1]

    [edit] Controversy surrounding investigation

    Some researchers claim some facts were missed, perhaps ignored, by officials:[2][3]

    • 12-year-old Yury Kuntsevich, who would later become head of the Yekaterinburg-based Dyatlov Foundation (see below), attended five of the hikers' funerals and recalls their skin had a "deep brown tan".[1]
    • The hikers' clothing was found to be highly radioactive.[1]
    • Another group of hikers (about 50 kilometers south of the incident) reported that they saw strange orange spheres in the night sky to the north (likely in the direction of Kholat Syakhl) on the night of the incident.[1] Similar "spheres" were observed in Ivdel and adjacent areas continually during the period of February to March 1959, by various independent witnesses (including the meteorology service and the military).[1] These were later proven to be launches of R-7 intercontinental missiles by Eugene Buyanov.[5]
    • Some reports suggest that there was a great deal of scrap metal in the area, leading to speculation that the military had utilized the area secretly and might have been engaged in a cover-up.[1]

    [edit] Aftermath

    In 1967, Sverdlovsk writer and journalist Yuri Yarovoi (Юрий Яровой) published the novel Of the highest rank of complexity (Высшей категории трудности)[6] which was inspired by this incident. Yarovoi had been involved in the search for Dyatlov's group and at the inquest, including acting as an official photographer for the search campaign and in the initial stage of the investigation, and so had insight into the events. The book was written in the Soviet era when the details of the accident were kept secret, and Yarovoi avoided revealing anything beyond the official position and well-known facts. The book romanticized the accident and had a much more optimistic end than the real events – only the group leader was found deceased. Yarovoi's colleagues say that he had alternative versions of the novel, but both were declined because of censorship. Since Yarovoi's death in 1980 all his archives, including photos, diaries and manuscripts, have been lost.

    Some details of the tragedy became publicly available in 1990 following publications and discussions in Sverdlovsk's regional press. One of the first authors was Sverdlovsk journalist Anatoly Guschin (Анатолий Гущин). Guschin reported that police officials gave him special permission to study the original files of the inquest and use these materials in his publications. He noticed that a number of pages were excluded from the files, as was a mysterious "envelope" mentioned in the case materials list. At the same time photocopies of some of the case files started to circulate among other unofficial researchers.

    Guschin summarized his research in the book The price of state secrets is nine lives (Цена гостайны - девять жизней).[3] Some researchers criticized it due to its concentration on the speculative theory of a "Soviet secret weapon experiment", but the publication aroused the public discussion, stimulated by interest in the paranormal. Indeed, many of those who remained silent for 30 years reported new facts about the accident. One of them was the former police officer Lev Ivanov (Лев Иванов), who led the official inquest in 1959. In 1990 he published an article[7] along with his admission that the investigation team had no rational explanation of the accident. He also reported that he received direct orders from high-ranking regional officials to dismiss the inquest and keep its materials secret after reporting that the team had seen "flying spheres". Ivanov personally believes in a paranormal explanation - specifically, UFOs.

    In 2000, a regional TV company produced the documentary film The Mystery of Dyatlov Pass (Тайна Перевала Дятлова). With the help of the film crew, a Yekaterinburg writer, Anna Matveyeva (Анна Матвеева), published the fiction/documentary novella of the same name.[2] A large part of the book includes broad quotations from the official case, diaries of victims, interviews with searchers and other documentaries collected by the film-makers. The narrative line of the book details the everyday life and thoughts of a modern woman (an alter ego of the author herself) who attempts to resolve the case.

    In September 2011, Ancient Aliens ("Aliens and Evil Places"; S03E10) on the History Channel featured a lengthy segment on the Dyatlov Pass incident.

    Despite its fictional narrative, Matveyeva's book remains the largest source of documentary materials ever made available to the public regarding the incident. In addition, the pages of the case files and other documentaries (in photocopies and transcripts) are gradually published on a web forum for enthusiastic researchers: [2].

    The Dyatlov Foundation has been founded in Yekaterinburg (Екатеринбург), with the help of Ural State Technical University, led by Yuri Kuntsevitch (Юрий Кунцевич). The foundation's aim is to convince current Russian officials to reopen the investigation of the case, and to maintain the "Dyatlov Museum" to perpetuate the memory of the dead hikers.

    Exploring the mystery of the Majestic 12

    | Mar 21, 2012

    MAJIC men teaser (credit: Bryce Zabel)

    In the whirlwind of the alleged Roswell incident cover up lies a secret set of government documents that compiles a 12-man list of our nations finest scientists, military leaders, and government officials. These men were allegedly authorized by President Truman to investigate the Roswell incident, and were called the Majestic 12. The report of the Majestic 12 lurks in the shadows of UFO accounts, and its story woven through a web of top-secret memos, highly classified meetings, and clandestine operations.

    Don Most, best remembered as Ralph from Happy Days, notions himself as an amateur ufologist. He is partnering with TV producer Bryce Zabel and Bridget Healey to produce a film surrounding the mystery of the Majestic 12, and the people who research it. Currently in the development stage, they hope this film will bring to light the mystery that surrounds this top secret government group.

    MAURY ISLAND NO LONGER A MYSTERY: A UFO HOAX EXPOSED! by Anthony Bragalia

    Copyright 2010, InterAmerica, Inc. (Permission needed to print this in its entirety, but Fair Use and blog links are allowed as usual)

    maury.jpg

    After six decades the truth has emerged about the infamous Maury Island UFO incident of 1947. It was a hoax. It finds its roots in fiction and fantasy, as revealed in candid and damning interviews with Maury Island UFO "witness" Harold Dahl's own son and daughter. The hoax is further detailed in a careful re-examination of the "mysterious" figure Fred Crisman.

    It is alleged that in June of 1947, seaman Harold Dahl was with his son scavenging for drifting logs near Maury Island in Puget Sound in Washington State when Harold sighted several "donut shaped objects" flying in formation over his boat. He claimed that one of the discs appeared to lose control after being tapped by another disc, spewing out slag and strange pieces of light metal material which hit his boat. The falling UFO debris supposedly injured Harold's son Charles and killed the family dog. His story was reported to his co-worker Fred Crisman and was later promoted by publisher Ray Palmer.

    The event -which has stirred the imaginations of many over decades- was itself born of imagination. It simply never happened. Harold Dahl's own family and the sage perspective of history now reveal: The only reality about the "incident" was that it was conjured up in the mind of an enterprising and attention-craving 27 year-old schemer and amateur fiction writer.

    MAURY ISLAND REVISITED

    beach.jpg

    A MAURY ISLAND BEACH

    Though this incredible sighting was alleged to have occurred on June 21, 1947 (just days before pilot Kenneth Arnold's seminal sighting and just weeks before the Roswell crash) no real verification exists of this except the say-so of Crisman and Dahl. It was not until July 22 that Kenneth Arnold himself received a letter from Ray Palmer, publisher of Amazing Stories, requesting that he investigate the incident, that it became publicly known. It was later still when Army Air Corps officers came to investigate the event at the behest of Arnold.

    Dahl reports (depending on the source) having observed between 4-6 donut shaped metallic discs about 100 feet in diameter. He said that he could see circular portholes around them, with blue sky showing through the craft's center holes. The UFOs, Dahl said, had been flying together in a pattern from about 2000 feet down to just 500 feet above. He said that one appeared to have been in distress when bumped by a nearing disc. After the hot slag from the crippled disc rained unto the boat, boy and dog, the damage was assessed. The dead dog was buried at sea and the boy had apparently sustained a burned arm.

    Rather than calling an official resource, Dahl elected to immediately contact his co-worker about the incident. The co-worker (with whom he retrieved errant floating logs for return to a sawmill to be used as raw lumber) was one Fred Crisman.

    Crisman seemed to control the information about the incident from the beginning- and allegedly even wrote letters to inquirers about the incident on behalf of Dahl or even pretending to be Dahl. Crisman -whom it will be shown was a hustler and pathological deceiver- held a strange hold on the meeker Dahl. This is especially interesting in that it has been confirmed that it was Crisman who actually worked for the older Dahl. Little-appreciated is that Crisman was an adventuresome 27 year old at the time of the "incident." It was in fact Dahl who had title and owned the vessel used for salvaging (which was in fine condition and not decrepit, as some have erroneously reported.) Dahl was an independent businessman sometimes working in tandem with the Harbor Patrol Association.

    Still, Dahl was somehow induced to go along with a lot of things said by Crisman. Dahl even later stated that he had taken photos of the saucers. When asked by Kenneth Arnold to produce them, Dahl went out to his car where he said that he had stored them in his glove compartment, but reported back that he could not find them. Crisman would state some twenty years later that he too had copies, but could not find them.

    Dahl also stated that he was visited the day after his UFO sighting by a man in a black suit driving a 1947 black Buick. The mystery man told Dahl that he best keep silent about the incident if he knew what was good for him. Upon learning that the two Army Air Corps officers whom Arnold brought to investigate had perished in the plane taking them back, Dahl made himself very scarce for some time. He later would say that the whole story was made up, but seemed to recant that in later years when reached for comment.

    slag.jpg

    ONLY KNOWN PHOTO OF MAURY ISLAND UFO DEBRIS - AUGUST, 1947 TACOMA TIMES

    When evaluated, the flying saucer debris material itself was found to be totally terrestrial. It was likely volcanic or mill slag. It possessed no unusual characteristics to make anyone seriously believe that it was from another world. Pilot Kenneth Arnold -though not a trained investigator- said that the metal part of the debris reminded him of aluminum scrap and that he even had noted a square rivet on one piece!

    THE WITNESS WHO WAS NOT: CHARLES DAHL'S DENIAL

    mauryisland.jpg

    In all retellings of the Maury Island tale, it is said that Harold Dahl's then 15 year old son Charles Dahl had "come along for the ride" on one of the log retrieval expeditions. It is further alleged that during the encounter, one of the saucers had ejected a slag material that hit and severely burned Charles' arm, requiring medical treatment.

    There is only one problem with this stunning scenario: Charles Dahl himself said that it never happened! The very child who was supposedly struck by slag from a saucer -as an adult says that he was never even there! He was likely as perplexed as all of us about why his father would ever have involved him in such a tall tale. But he gives a clue as to why this may be so in describing an amateur Svengali named Fred Crisman. And it is now known that Harold's claims and sudden change in behavior were upsetting to the Dahl family.

    Some time ago a husband and wife research team located Charles Dahl and conversed with him about the incident. Kalani Hanohano is a long-time UFO researcher. Back in the late 1960's he was MUFON Washington State Director, a civilian UFO research organization. Having lived in Hawaii, WA and CA, Hanohano is now an ex-pat retiree living on Spain's Canary Islands with his wife Katiuska. Hanohano and his wife still remain UFO enthusiasts though are not as active in the field as they were many years ago.

    Hanohano, having lived in Washington State, had long been fascinated by the Maury Island story. He and his wife had undertaken to closely examine the lives of Fred Crisman and Harold Dahl. He and his Katiuska had in fact had even managed to locate Harold Dah's son Charles, who has since passed. When found and reached at his home in Hammond, LA, Charles Dahl spoke sparingly and cautiously to the Hanohanos. But he did confirm for them that Crisman, "was a smooth-talking con artist" for whom he had no respect- and Charles directly and unequivocally confirmed to them that "the Maury Island incident was a hoax." It is evident that Charles Dahl did not like Crisman for having involved him and his father in the whole thing.

    Likely embarrassed by his father Harold having been so easily and so fully "taken in" and influenced by Crisman, Dahl rarely spoke about the"event" - even to family. Charles Dahl was curiously never interviewed at the time of the event. He appeared to have been kept away from it all by the adults, including by Crisman. There appears to be no hospital records to verify Charles medical treatment for being struck and burned by falling hot slag.

    On the very face of it, the account makes no sense: If a child suffered the horrendous impact of rock and metal raining down upon him from hundreds of feet above -so hot that it burned skin and falling so fast that it killed an animal- the child would have been killed. Minimally the boy would have been permanently disabled. And there appears to be no police, fire, or property or accident insurance records that would support the occurrence of the incident as described. As will be shown next, Charles own sister said that her brother was never maimed in such a way.

    Based on his research and his interview of Charles Dahl, Hanohano says: "If there is a term that continually characterizes Fred Crisman, that term would be con man." Hanonhano's professionalism and accuracy is apparently vouched for by respected researcher Jerome Clark, who also briefly notes this Hanohano-Dahl interview in Strange Skies.

    Little known too is that a stringer and informant for the FBI met with Dahl at his house. Dahl's wife was very upset and perplexed by her husband's tall tale and was heard to say "Quit lying about this!." She then attacked Dahl with a knife! The father's lies -and Crisman's scheming- were obviously not welcome by Dahl's wife and his son. The father's behavior under Crisman's "spell" seemed to have brought them to the breaking point.

    DAHL'S DAUGHTER: "MY BROTHER WAS NOT BURNED BY A UFO"

    chard.jpg

    More recent confirmation comes from Harold Dahl's own daughter, who is still living. She too says that "nothing ever happened."

    She echoes the information obtained by the Hanohanos' interview with her brother Charles. Louise Bakotich (maiden name Louise Dahl) of Aberdeen in Grays Harbor County in Washington State is now nearly 80 years old. She has stated flat out to a Seattle Post Intelligencer (Seattle PI) reporter on April 23, 2007 that her brother Charles did not have such an encounter.

    Still clear-headed, she told journalist Casey McNerthney -and others who have inquired- that her brother never mentioned anything at all about a mysterious death of their family dog or that he was ever injured by hot slag in such an incident. It would have been a traumatic event that she surely would have remembered had it happened to one of her own brothers. Charles was not ever rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment of burns. Louise was just a couple of years older than Charles at the time of the Maury Island sighting, and knew nothing of her brother's "involvement." She dismisses the whole thing as ridiculous.

    It is likely Louise Dahl is telling the truth. She should be supporting the Maury story in support of her father, not denying it. And Dahl's daughter did not come forward with this information, rather she was sought out and approached. So untainted was she in speaking about this that one person had to mail to her details on an event she never knew or believed to have happened.

    And it is of course inconceivable that -had such an event really transpired- Louise would not recall the loss of her own family dog knocked dead at sea! It is equally inconceivable that she would not remember the simultaneous burning and wounding of her own kid brother's body! If such events had truly occurred, it would have mentally scarred her for life. Perhaps out of respect for a now elderly lady, no one has seemed to dare ask Louise why she thinks that her father told such a strange story in the first place.

    Given the venomous characterization of Crisman by her own brother Charles, we likely have the answer: When she much later learned all of the details and hoopla surrounding the "incident" Louise probably realized just how impressionable, trusting and easily "drawn in" her beloved father was as a young man. Like her late brother, she surely wishes her Dad had never gotten involved in anything involving such a man as Crisman. Someone who would take advantage of someone for self gain.

    FRED CRISMAN: WALTER MITTY PROVIDES THE ANSWER TO MAURY ISLAND

    crisman.jpg

    FRED CRISMAN

    Over the years many authors have tried to make Fred Crisman "mysterious." And Fred Crisman himself liked to appear "mysterious." He has been variously linked to the JFK assassination, to having been one of the "three tramps" at the Grassy Knoll and to have been at the center of other "conspiracies." None of this is true- and nothing could be further from the truth than Fred Crisman.

    Fred Crisman's story of Maury Island was told in 1947. And 1947 is also the very year that the movie "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" was released. It starred Danny Kaye as a daydreamer who wanted to be somebody other than himself...and Fred Crisman was a real-life Walter Mitty.

    A critical review of Crisman's life reveals an individual who indulged himself and others in his fantastic daydreams of personal triumphs and intrigue. There was nothing "official" about Fred Crisman. He was a self-promoter and teller of tall tales. He was similar to such later-day con men as Richard Doty, Bob Lazar, Phil Corso and Gordon Novel. All of these types feel compelled to insert themselves into history and have others play into their Mitty-like "mysteries." They are not "official" disinformers acting under government auspice- nor do they have any "special knowledge" about the UFO's "core story." They are simply jesters and underachievers who crave attention. They often play off of "six degrees of separation" relationships with people of real accomplishment. The only thing "deep" about them is perhaps their mental pathology.

    The sad truth is that Crisman was a lonely "only child" and the son of an old-school salesman. Like many "only children" Crisman probably developed a rich fantasy life early on in his life. This is surely in evidence by his 20s when he was a hobbyist fantasy writer. And Crisman needed the attention as an adult that he had received when growing up as a child without siblings.

    He mastered his mad skills in con-manship from his promoter-father, whom he idolized. The power of persuasion and over-claiming was learned well by young Crisman. It was his Dad whom he was named after and for whom he named his own son. In 1947, Crisman was a young man, 27 years old and hungry to make a name for himself - and maybe a little money while he was at it. How could a young college grad -reduced to picking up scrap for lumber - combine his dull life scavenging logs on the water with his penchant for fiction writing (see below) into something more exciting? He could tie it in to a spectacular flying saucer event seen from the boat that he worked on!

    A man of minor achievement when older, Fred Crisman was a failed politico and media wannabe who had loose and accidental connections to some in government and intelligence. He used alias names, such as "Jon Gold" and imagined himself as more important than he ever would be in reality. He hosted a poorly-received and short-running radio talk show under this name on the KAYE radio station in tiny Puyallup, WA. He also wrote a dreadful book under the name Jon Gold on imagined conspiracies in Tacoma politics called "The Murder of a City, Tacoma." One reviewer described Crisman's writing like this: "He manages to tie corruption in Tacoma to everything from Communist infiltrators to the Kennedy assassination." The reviewer laments Crisman's "paranoid tone of the writing and shameless personal attacks."

    Some uncritically conspiracy-minded say that Crisman himself was at the scene of the JFK murder. But records clearly indicate that Crisman was actually teaching high schoolers at Ranier High. Researcher Larry Hancock found the principal of the High School that briefly employed Crisman. In fact Hancock states that the principal truly disliked Crisman and that he even had sought to have him dismissed.

    Crisman held many jobs, and none for long and none done well. He ran for City Council once and lost big, but was once given a seat on the board of the local library by the Mayor (Crisman's only "government appointment.") He worked at schools, libraries and radio stations. He was in the scrap business and he ran record promotion schemes. If you shift jobs and if you scheme for dollars and attention long enough, you are bound to run into all kinds of "intriguing" players. And Crisman did. But when critically examined, any "associations" that Crisman may have developed with politicians, the underground or other "colorful characters" were just coincidental, casual or embellished connections- or resulted from tangential relationships. There was nothing "mysterious" about Fred Crisman, just sad.

    Researcher Larry Hancock has done a deep study of Fred Crisman. He observes: "There was a clear pattern of Crisman trying to create mysteries around himself, anything to give himself visibility. He was also a devotee of picking up government stationary and writing 'official' letters (author: like Rick Doty.) In one of his efforts he appears to try to associate himself with a mysterious domestic intelligence network." Hancock notes that Crisman even tried to scheme and dream up international plots of infiltration and influence of local Washington State school boards! Crisman appeared to enjoy creating controversy and conflict, playing strange roles in even local matters like schools and city government.

    EXTREMELY RARE PHOTO OF "DERO" CREATURES SEEN BY CRISMAN, DEPICTED IN SHAVER'S "ROCK BOOK"

    But the most telling things about this fantasy-prone, sorry man are the childish letters that he had written to publisher Ray Palmer that were composed before he had had ever even reported to Palmer on the Maury Island UFOs. In fact, when he was just 25 years old, Fred Crisman had written stories for publication in fiction pulp magazines about encountering an evil cave-dwelling race called "Dero." Like asylum patient Richard Shaver -a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic- Crisman promoted fantastical stories about "inner earth creatures" that dwell beneath us like devils, seeking to do us harm. Crisman wrote Palmer in the mid-1940s in published, delusional "Letters to the Editor" that -like Shaver- he too was fortunate enough to have successfully fended off these underground raygun-wielding beings! Crisman even claimed that he had fought his way out of a cave in Burma during WWII with a submachine gun, fighting off the underground meanies! So craven for attention was Crisman that he would support the certifiably insane (Shaver) and even involve his own boss Dahl and his family to get that attention. No wonder Dahl's son Charles loathed him. No wonder Dahl's daughter does not believe the tale he told.

    Little-known is that Crisman (writing under a pseudonym) published an article in Palmer's Flying Saucers magazine in 1958 -more than a decade after the Maury Island "sighting." He claimed that the Air Force had since installed armed military who were still guarding Maury Island! Of course this is a Crisman "fact" that was untrue, if checked! Even as late as 1967 he was trying to milk the Maury Island myth that he had created by lecturing to a small Seattle UFO group. He said that he still had the Maury Island UFO photographs- but he never could produce them, even after two decades had passed. Crisman died young at 56 in modest circumstance and in relative obscurity in 1975.

    CRISMAN'S PLAN UNVEILS: CREATING THE MAURY ISLAND HOAX

    The key to the answer to the Maury "question" is this: Crisman was an opportunist. He saw the "Shaver Mystery" with its "Dero" as a big attention-getting opportunity, so he latched on to Shaver and Palmer. He spun his own, grander tale about Deros to build on Shaver's. Crisman wrote to Palmer, "You can imagine my fright when I picked up my copy of Amazing Stories and see you spashing words about on the subject." Crisman then "one-upped" Shaver in recounting a terrifying episode. Crisman said that he was inflicted with "two 9 inch wounds" from a Dero weapon- and that he still had the scars to prove it! Crisman had developed a hackneyed literary device-he had a "thing" about non-humans inflicting wounds on humans. Remember that Harold Dahl's son Charles was also "wounded" by the actions of ET.

    In the same way that he had copied Shaver's Dero concept, Crisman saw the Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting as an opportunity to again gain personal attention, but now in an even bigger way. He quickly latched on to the then-emerging flying saucer mystery, and to saucer celebrity Kenneth Arnold (and again, to receptive Palmer.) He told them lies that his associate Dahl was involved in a sighting of flying saucers that even pre-dated Arnold's and that was even more dramatic!

    shaver-palmer.jpg

    CON MEN RICHARD SHAVER AND RAY PALMER: RUNNING A CIRCUS

    The dimunitive publisher Ray Palmer thought big. He relished such fantastic stories as Shaver's and Crisman's. It did not matter to Palmer that he mixed credible accounts like Arnold's with incredible accounts from those like Richard Shaver and Crisman/Dahl. The only thing that mattered was the money made from increased sales to a gullible and eager readership. His stories and magazines were tailored to target adventure-loving teenaged boys. Crisman himself was an overgrown kid, an immature adult.

    In Crisman's scheming mind, the Maury Island UFO sighting would have to be "bigger than Arnold's." It was important to Crisman that "his sighting" was seen as even more spectacular than Arnold's- and that it had occurred even before Arnold's. Of course, the incident did not happen before Kenneth Arnold's sighting because the Maury Island UFO incident never happened. The Maury Incident did not pre-date Kenneth Arnold sighting or the Roswell crash, rather it's false story was inspired by them and then backdated.

    STEALING STORIES FROM ARNOLD AND ROSWELL

    Crisman drew upon elements of genuine UFO encounters such as Arnold's and Roswell's because Crisman was good at copying. Crisman was not capable of such an original recounting as would be found in a real UFO sighting. Instead, he stole elements of Arnold's story (and likely from elements of the Roswell crash) and built on them- inserting his easily-persuaded co-worker into the tale. Note that the UFOs reported by Dahl were circular saucers. They were not curved all-wing shaped like Kenneth Arnold's. It was only after the Arnold sighting was reported that the "saucer" term was used to describe UFOs. This shows that the Maury Island "UFO motif" was derived from "saucer" descriptors that were used after the Arnold sighting, though Dahl's sighting was supposedly from days before Arnold's sighting.

    NOT SINISTER, BUT STUPID

    And Crisman was no "secret agent" either. Crisman's own son said that he did not believe that his father was "CIA" or in intelligence- because they never had enough money for that to have been true! The most "sinister" thing about Crisman is that he needlessly involved others in his attention-grabbing schemes. Crisman's folly caused two people to get involved in his hoax who were were killed in an air accident in so doing. These officers, Captain William Davidson and Lt Frank Brown, lost their lives when the aircraft that they flew back after investigating Maury Island had crashed. More than a prank gone wild, this prank had killed.

    donuts.jpg

    It is now time to "kill" the Maury Island flying saucer story. Charles Dahl -like his father Harold Dahl- got entangled in a web woven of lies. And the son's own words offer the simple solution to the Maury Island UFO mystery: It was a mystery imagined "by a smooth-talking con artist" named Crisman.

    President Harry Truman Realized That UFO'S Were Real.

    President Harry Truman: "I can assure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on Earth."

    Several months ago, a group of ex-military officers came forward to discuss their experiences when UFOs reportedly tampered with American nuclear missile sites. While Alexander acknowledges the events, he suggests why there was no intense intelligence investigation of these incidents.

    "They absolutely happened, but when it's a one-time event, the attitude of investigators is: If it happens again, we'll get nervous, but since it didn't happen, put it aside."It's sort of an indictment that says, despite overwhelming evidence of interaction with strategic systems, nothing was done. And in my view, it is put, like a number of things, in the too-tough-to-handle bin."

    In his new book, "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities," Alexander writes, "UFOs are real! With no prevarication or qualification of terms, there are physical objects of unknown origin that do transit our universe. The evidence that supports those statements is simply overwhelming."The evidence he speaks of includes the hard data of sensor technology that has frequently confirmed the reality of physical craft and the high quality of extremely reliable eyewitnesses who are "neither misreporting facts nor delusional."

    "The problem is, when you discuss UFOs, we are talking everything from little balls of light to hard craft a mile or more across, and everything in between. So what is it?" Alexander asked."I argue that, not only are we not solving the problems yet, we're not even asking the right questions, because we approach this wrong. I suspect that consciousness is a piece of the puzzle. We talk about UFOs, saying it's a technology that's 1,000 years in advance, but it really isn't. If you follow the history of these things, usually it is somewhat in advance, but not beyond our comprehension by any stretch of the imagination.

    "The conundrum you get into is, yes, they are seen by sensors; however, at other times, they are not seen by sensors that should've seen them, and that's one I can't answer." Thanks to Ken Pfeifer MUFON NJ www.worldUFOphotos.org

    TPTB are building a monster radio telescope for detect an alien invasion

    Fox News Reports a joint team of 20 countries led by the USA, is building a monster radio telescope formed by 3,000 50-foot-wide dishes, with a 50 light-years range, for detect a hostile alien invasion, according to Allison Barrie, the baby-face poster girl of the Illuminati, for military defense public relations. It costs $ three billion dollars and reaches out to 50 light years to detect a possible alien invasion. An artist's interpretation of the Square-Kilometer Array, a huge radio telescope currently under development in Australia. (SPDP/Swinburne Astronomy Productions)

    If there are space invaders out there, it won’t be long before they can no longer stage a sneak attack, thanks to a project to build the most sensitive radio telescope ever -- one that’s the size of a continent.

    Known as The Square Kilometer Array (SKA), it will explore the universe, identify any potential alien threats to our planet and hopefully answer some fundamental questions from astronomers. Its thousands of receptors, spaced roughly one kilometer apart, will be linked across an entire continent.

    They’ll be arranged in five spiral arms like a galaxy, 3,000 50-foot-wide dishes that extend out from a central core at least 1,860 miles (3,000 kilometers) -- about the distance from New York City to Albuquerque, N.M.

    The board of directors behind the telescope met for the first time in late January to kick off the project. Their first decision: where to house such a beast. After all, if it’s located in Australia, the antennas could span the entire continent. If it’s in South Africa, another location being considered, they would stretch to the Indian Ocean islands.

    Optical telescopes can reveal only so much of the universe. The SKA’s radio telescopes, on the other hand, pick up radio-frequency signals unobscured by, say, cosmic dust. They will survey the sky 10,000 times faster than any other telescope and with 50 times the sensitivity and 100 times the survey speed of current imaging instruments.

    Among the SKA’s missions: finding an answer to the question, “Are we alone?”

    From a defense perspective, that’s a coy way of asking whether there are aliens out there with the capacity and appetite to attack us.

    The SKA will be able to detect very weak extraterrestrial signals and search for complex molecules, the building blocks of life. Many new planets outside our solar system have been discovered in recent years, but it’s not clear whether they host life.

    The search for extraterrestrial transmission has been underway for a long time, but the SKA’s sensitivity will provide a key advantage.

    For the first time, it will even be possible to detect the relatively weak signals of televisions and radars from nearby stars. Spying such an artificial transmission from a planet around a star would be a pretty good clue that we’re not in this by ourselves.

    The SKA will also look at how galaxies evolve and investigate the nature of dark energy. By mapping out the cosmic distribution of hydrogen, it will study the expansion of the universe after the Big Bang. Such a map will also allow researchers to track young galaxies.

    How were stars born and black holes formed? The SKA will study the very first ones, as well as stars and galaxies that shaped the development of the universe. It will even be able to detect black holes forming during the Dark Ages.

    SKA will also take on Einstein. The board of directors speculates that it may challenge the theory of general relativity and probe the nature of gravity.

    Initial construction is due in 2016, and the SKA is expected to be fully operational by 2024. By 2019, well before the full array is completed, the team expects some exciting science results will be achievable.

    All that science won’t come cheap, of course. The SKA is expected to cost approximately $2.36 billion.

    But those bucks buy an awful lot of power: The SKA’s central computer will have the processing power of approximately 1 billion PCs, and it will produce enough raw data to fill 15 million 64GB iPods every day. The SKA dishes will produce 10 times as much data the world’s Internet traffic.

    In fact, one of the largest design challenges was how to relay the huge amount of data across such large distances.

    The solution: Enough optical fiber to wrap twice around the Earth -- and take the Earth’s defense to an entirely different scale.

    Man claimes stairstepped into the cloud

     

     

    George, check out nicap file # 470709...this object was the same type I saw may 3rd 2010...The objects I saw entered the cloud in a side to side motion like fish swimming up stream...Same as sighting #470709...man claimes it stairstepped into the cloud...The objects I saw reacted to the sun..As soon as the sun made a reflection the objects immediatly flew side to side back in..I truley believe there is more out there than unidentified aircraft...There are unidentified creatures flying in our skies..

    Sincerly,
    Benny Garfield.

    Take a look at the enclosed. Play it in slow motion and watch the streaks. They are no more than one frame duration (15 frames per second) and even in such a short time their movement already causes a streak. I don’t think it is wise to talk about where I filmed it but I did film it and it is another bit of evidence that something is going on which we are being kept in the dark about. If we were to force the governments to admit existence of these craft in our 21st century (the Torah already did) by asking everyone to video the skies an hour a day and publicize the evidence then maybe we can start forcing a disclosure an end to dirty energy and an end to the need for feeding the military industrial complex through staged wars....

    Intelligent Design?

    Time Magazine reports that George W. Bush expressed support for the idea of combining lessons in evolution with a discussion of "intelligent design"-- the proposition that some aspects of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause or agent, as opposed to natural selection. It is a subtler way of finding God's fingerprints in nature than traditional creationism. "Both sides ought to be properly taught," said the President, who appeared to choose his words with care, "so people can understand what the debate is about ... I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought."

    The President's position seems supremely fair-minded particularly if he has inside classified information on alien visitation for centuries.

    Hellyer Former Canadian Minister of Defense Blasts UFO Cover-Up 

    Last year I spoke with Paul Hellyer at the UFO Congress and the former Canadian Minister of Defense, is talking about his belief that UFOs are from another planet and that the U.S. Government has kept it covered up. As Canadian Minister of National Defense in 1963, Hellyer was responsible for integrating and unifying the Royal Canadian army, navy and air force into a single organization, the Canadian Armed Forces. He is outspoken about UFOs visiting Earth and the US Banking System that he feels is greatly responsible for the present economic hard times. He feels we are naive and fail to understand we are being visited by alien life forms.

    When Hellyer was Canada's Minister of National Defense he stated, "I got periodic reports on sightings and I looked at them very casually, and it was decided that about 80 percent of them were natural phenomena of one sort or another, and the other 20 percent roughly were unexplained, and therefore unidentified.

    While spending last Thanksgiving north of Toronto, Hellyer and his wife spotted an unidentified flying object.

    "The two of us stood there transfixed for 20 minutes, looking up at this thing moving first in one direction, and then another. By process of elimination, we determined it wasn't a star or satellite and it wasn't the space station, so there was really no explanation for it other than it was, in fact, a UFO."

    "It looked like a star, but it maneuvered in a way that stars don't. I must admit that when I saw this one, I wondered whether it was extraterrestrial or American. And I guess the thought that occurred to me was that if it is American, then they have learned some pretty big secrets about acceleration, because it accelerated at a pace that nothing I've ever known about that was built here is capable of."


    In his book " Light at the End of the Tunnel: A Survival Plan for the Human Species" (Author House), Hellyer claims that an American "shadow government" is behind this activity.

Sponsored by Flying Saucer Fantasia! Check http://www.flyingsaucerfantasia.net

     

    The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force. Under Project Blue Book, the US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years; and we continue this research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO's are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.


    Support Earth Changing Research

    I was sitting at my desk, pondering how I could get people interested in getting my work of the last thirteen years. I have put together a DVD of Filer's Files with hundreds of great photographs and UFO sightings.

    Additionally, I have decided to include my book within the DVD that includes George Ritter's exciting abduction story by Linda Moulton Howe. Broadcaster David E. Twichell has also included much of his excellent dialog for a donation of only $50.

    We also include a year's subscription. Please include your e-mail address and mailing address.

    First Strike

    The US bomber force is destroyed on the ground and the Minuteman missiles in their silos in this highly realistic dramatization filmed with the unprecedented cooperation of the US Air Force. The people shown are the actual men and women of the US Air Force and Navy who would have been targeted. This is a short version of the scenario used in the 1979 documentary film, FIRST STRIKE, which examined how the Soviet SS-18 missile force together with submarine launched missiles might be used to destroy our strategic forces in a surprise, preemptive attack.
