UFO'S - MET HET LAATSTE NIEUWS OVER UFO'S BOVEN BELGIË EN IN ANDERE LANDEN...
UFO's in België en de rest van de wereld In België heb je vooral BUFON of het Belgisch UFO-Netwerk, dat zich met UFO's bezighoudt. BEZOEK DUS ZEKER VOOR ALLE OBJECTIEVE INFORMATIE ww.ufo.be.
Verder heb je ook het Belgisch-Ufo-meldpunt en Caelestia, die prachtig, doch ZEER kritisch werk leveren, ja soms zelfs héél sceptisch...
Voor Nederland kan je de mooie site www.ufowijzer.nl bezoeken van Paul Harmans. Een mooie site met veel informatie en artikels.
MUFON of het Mutual UFO Network Inc is een Amerikaanse UFO-vereniging met afdelingen in alle USA-staten en diverse landen.
MUFON's mission is the analytical and scientific investigation of the UFO- Phenomenon for the benefit of humanity...
Je kan ook hun site bekijken onder www.mufon.com.
Ze geven een maandeliiks tijdschrift uit, namelijk The MUFON UFO-Journal. Since 02/01/2013 is Pieter not only president (=voorzitter) of BUFON, but also National Director MUFON / Flanders and the Netherlands. We work together with the French MUFON Reseau MUFON/EUROP.
It's hard to talk about UFOs in the 50s, 60s and 70s without mentioning abductees, but what of contactees? Whereas abductees are taken onto craft supposedly for experimentation and observation, procedures and the like, contactees have communication with alien beings without any physical manipulation/examination or moving to a secondary site. There was a supposed contactee named George Van Tassel. He was born in 1910 to a fairly well-to-do family in Ohio. He showed promise with his hands and mechanics and led a life of many jobs in the field of mechanic work and had a pilot's license. By a strange series of events (like most contactees report), he came across a man who was a loner and owned a prospect near Giant Rock in the Mojave Desert in California. When the loner died during WWII, Van Tassel applied to lease there to develop an airstrip.
Van Tassel was an airplane mechanic and inspector. He spent years in the newly booming aerospace industry into the late 1940s. Then, he moved his family to a simple existence out by Giant Rock, living in a room dug out by the loner long ago. Van Tassel then proceeded to build a home, an airstrip, a cafe and a dude ranch there. Interestingly, Van Tassel started hosting meditations in the room under the rock. That very year, he said he was visited by an alien from Venus who woke him up and spoke to him telepathically. He said he was given information about how to build something that could rejuvenate a human's cells, “a time machine for basic research on rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel.” Source: Van Tassel described the Integratron as being created for scientific and spiritual research with the aim to recharge and rejuvenate people’s cells, “a time machine for basic research on rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel”. The domed wood structure has a rotating metal apparatus on the outside he called an “electrostatic dirod”. Van Tassel claimed it was made of non ferromagnetic; constructed of only wood, concrete, glass and fibreglass lacking even metal screws or nails. The Integratron was never fully completed due to Van Tassel's sudden death a few weeks before the official opening. In recent times some people who visit the unfinished Integratron claim to be rejuvenated by staying there, and experiencing sound baths inside.
Annually at the rock, Van Tassel hosted a Giant Rock Spacecraft Convention from 1953 to 1978. Guests arrived by car and even by small planes to the air strip to attend. Even George Adamski, the most famous contactee, attended.
If that wasn't enough, in his “new age” compound, Van Tassel founded “The University of Universal Wisdom” and shared spiritual revelations from his encounters.
As someone who has had contactee encounters and the sorts of universal insights I was given, I do understand his determination to act on knowledge he believes he received from these encounters. I have tried to make sense of my own information and feel free to share it when people want to know.
I believe there are encounters with other beings, whether they are from other planets or not, I am not certain, but I have my own thoughts on that matter. These are exceedingly similar to those who had “angelic” encounters throughout history. It can make you want to share a new perspective and, in that way, it is eye-opening and mind-opening for the general public. I get more uncomfortable when religious practices are based on it and cults are formed like the sad Heaven's Gate followers that performed mass suicide.
I hope we keep the conversations open. So far as Van Tassel is concerned, I think that he was heading to a destiny. His life seemed to lead to this point where he had a mission and he found the spot and the mission arrived. I understand the feeling. I think he might have had some genuine encounters or something so moving that it motivated him in extraordinary ways.
WORLD War One, London: a German airship is pounding the capital with bombs. Several aircraft are scrambled to attack the enemy raider. But as well as the giant Zeppelin a mysterious object is seen in the sky by the British pilots. “One of them described it as looking like a railway carriage with the blinds down,” says Nigel Watson, who has investigated the century-old sighting. “One pilot took some shots with his revolver but the object flew away out of range.” The strange incident is one of the more extraordinary encounters featured in the Plympton author’s latest book, UFOs Of The First World War. There are many more: Nigel’s book will cause a rethink for anybody who reckons UFOs – unidentified flying objects – only arrived after World War Two departed in 1945. True, the term ‘flying saucer’ was coined in 1947 (after a description of an unexplained object that flew ‘like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water’). But UFOs have been seen for centuries and descriptions of them have evolved over time. “It’s called ‘cultural tracking’,” says Nigel. “People tend to see things in the sky that are a bit more advanced than the current technology but still within the bounds of credibility and the possibilities of that time. “What we see is conditioned by the media and culture.” Hence during the 1914-18 war people saw, and explained what they saw as, objects that fitted the era of airships and biplanes. Nigel, 60, is an expert in the history of UFOs and the latest book is his fourth on the subject. His research came from War Office files held by the Public Records Office – police passed sightings to the government department charged with conducting the British effort during the conflict – and from newspapers (which were heavily censored from 1915 on). “Military intelligence officers investigated the sightings,” says Nigel. “Often they were found, after a few phone calls, to be misidentifications. Some were not explained. “There were a lot of UFO sightings in the Lake District. Troops were sent to search for an enemy aircraft base in Scotland.
“Nothing was found but a reward of £100 (the equivalent of a year’s wage for some) was offered to anybody who did.” The Ashburton area was another hotspot for sightings. Lieutenant Colonel W P Drury, a military intelligence officer based in Plymouth, was sent to investigate a series reports of strange, floating lights in the sky in June and July, 1915. The officer witnessed the light once himself and noted that other sightings were on a line on the map that passed though Buckfast Abbey. “Some German prisoners were being held there,” says Nigel. “He thought that the light might be up to them, to signal (to the enemy) but there were not a lot of targets on Dartmoor.” Nothing he found has convinced Nigel of the presence of an alien life in connection with the sightings. He remains an ‘optimistic sceptic’, he says.
De kans dat er ooit leven was op Mars wordt steeds groter. De Nasa-verkenner Curiosity heeft er stikstofverbindingen aangetroffen. Het zijn die stikstofverbindingen die ook cruciaal zijn voor het leven op Aarde
De ontdekkingen van het Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) aan boord van de Curiosity werden gepubliceerd in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Eerder was men er al op de hoogte van de aanwezigheid van stikstof in de atmosfeer van Mars. Om leven mogelijk te maken, moet het echter omgezet worden in stikstofverbindingen.
Op onze planeet gebeurt die stikstofcyclus door bacteriën die vaste stikstof produceren, die op zijn beurt door planten wordt opgenomen. Van daaruit komt de stikstof in de grond terecht, waarna de cyclus zich herhaalt. Als er ooit leven was op Mars, dan is de kans groot dat het stikstofverbindingen gebruikte.
In dat geval kwam de stikstof waarschijnlijk door blikseminslagen of door hitte van een impact zoals een meteorietinslag op de rode planeet terecht. De ontdekking betekent niet noodzakelijk dat er op dit moment leven is, maar toont wel aan dat het ooit mogelijk was. ‘Daarom gaan we uitzoeken of het proces van stikstofverbindingen nu nog steeds gebeurt’, zegt Nasa-wetenschapper Jennifer Stern aan de LA Times.
Steeds meer bewijs
Het is niet de eerste keer dat Curiosity een belangrijke ontdekking doet. Eerder vond de verkenner al een bedding van een oude rivier en toonde het aan dat er drinkbaar water was op de planeet.
Pennsylvania UFO described as ‘Star Trek shimmery’
Pennsylvania UFO described as ‘Star Trek shimmery’
The witness first noticed a giant black V flying from the southeast to northwest. Pictured: Downtown Palmyra. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons.
APennsylvania witness at Palmyra reported watching a large, black, V-shaped UFO that appeared “shimmery” in the night sky, according to testimony in Case 64079 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside walking a dog and searching the sky for satellites using a phone app when the object was first seen beginning at 8:22 p.m. on March 18, 2015.
“After finding and watching three satellites and not finding the fourth, I heard and saw one of our UH-60s flying past Hershey Park on their way back to Fort Indiantown Gap. While watching the helicopter and noticing that several other airplanes and commuter jets were in the air on such a clear chilly night, I detected movement out of the corner of my eye.”
Looking at the object directly, the witness said the red lights were very dim and the craft was shimmery almost like ‘Star Trek’ cloaking. Pictured: Town marker. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)
The witness noticed the unusual object.
“I turned my head and there was a giant black V flying from the southeast to northwest. It had to my best recall, six red lights that I could see on the lower left wing, one under the nose and one I could make out under the right wing in the further most aft position.”
The witness tried to gather as much information as possible during the short sighting.
“With my arm fully extended and the right hand thumb and index finger fully extended – that was the size from nose tip to trailing edge of a wing. It was completely silent. It travelled a heading of about 320-330 degrees. It passed over and just behind the Blackhawk I was watching. All other air traffic was unaffected.”
The object had an odd characteristic.
“Looking directly at it was harder than using off center viewing which is best for night time. Looking at it directly, the red lights were very dim and the craft was shimmery almost like “Star Trek” cloaking. With off center viewing you could see the red lights better and the outline of the craft.”
The object appeared as though it was sliding along in the sky.
“It wasn’t like it was flying. It was like it was sliding on a solid surface. It was so smooth, fast and silent. Whole exposure time was about 5 seconds. To the average person that may not sound like much, but to a aircrew member, five seconds can be an eternity when the adrenaline and training kicks in. I tried to get a picture with my cell phone, but once you took your eyes off the craft it was hard to re-acquire the target. Then a tree was in the way and then I snapped a picture in the area it would have been in, but it was inside the satellite app of my iPhone.”
The witness is guessing the object’s airspeed would be 5,000 feet and 1,000 mph., with zero sound. Heading 320-330 degrees and the size estimate is 300-350 feet long nose to tail/end of wing. (Credit: Google)
The witness is speculating on the object.
“Doing my own research it mostly resembled the V from Phoenix. My educated guess on altitude and airspeed would be 5,000 feet and 1,000 mph. with zero sound. Heading 320-330 degrees and size estimate 300-350 feet long nose to tail/end of wing.”
The witness has a military background.
“Twenty-four years military service; still active National Guard. Enlisted for 15 years and now a Warrant Officer since 2006. I spent my whole career in aviation and most of it flying and crewing CH-47 Chinooks. Now a course writer and platform instructor. I know aviation well and I am trained to react and work under pressure and unusual environments. After the sighting, I finished with the measurements.”
Palmyra is a borough in Lebanon County, PA, population 7,096.
Pennsylvania is currently a UFO Alert Level 5 – with 0.71 sightings per million population based on MUFON February 2015 statistics. Pennsylvania received a total of nine UFO reports in February.
The UFO Alert Rating System is based on five levels – 1 through 5 – where states with 4.01 or higher reports per million residents are rated an Alert 1; 3.01 – 4.0 reports are an Alert 2; 2.51 – 3.0 are an Alert 3; 2.01 – 2.5 are an Alert 4; and those states with 2.0 or lower are rated an Alert 5.
Please remember that most UFO sighting can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

MOD helicopter chases 4 UFOs in England
MOD helicopter chases 4 UFOs in England
MOD helicopter chases 4 UFOs in England
A family was outdoors enjoying a barbecue when they noticed a Ministry of Defence helicopter chasing four UFOs through the skies above the English town of Bolton.
Andrea Finney, her husband Nigel, and their son were eating outdoors when Andrea reportedly noticed the UFOs in the sky. She pointed out the strange objects, and instructed Nigel to grab a camera. After retrieving the camera, he was able to snap a few photos of the unidentified aerial objects. He explains to UK media outlet Mirror, “Our camera does not have a good zoom on it or anything – it is just a normal camera, so we took what we could but afterwards we just could not explain it.”

The witnesses assert that the UFOs “zoomed off” shortly after, and they claim they observed a MOD helicopter in pursuit of these unidentified craft.
“We just could not explain it,” says Nigel. He continues, “They were not hot air balloons. They were not Chinese lanterns. They were just something else.”
Andrea adds, “You just had to be there to see it, it was the strangest thing I have ever seen in my life . . . I was just gobsmacked.”

The day and time of the incident is unclear. But the event definitely startled the witnesses and left them scratching their heads.

A Field Full of Secrets - New Crop Circle UFO Documentary 2015
A Field Full of Secrets - New Crop Circle UFO Documentary 2015
Gepubliceerd op 29 dec. 2014
This just in Ufologists, a new ufo documentary for 2015!!! This one looks good, A Field Full of Secrets is about cereologists who take the designs of crop circles and try to build a UFO out of them. While some might dismiss this documentary, just remember there's two sides to a story. Not all man made crop circles are the same as suggested by physicist Eltjo Haselhoff and biophysicist William Levengood. This may be the best crop circle documentary ever created...
De Amerikaanse robotjeep Mars Curiosity heeft sporen van nitraat in de Marsbodem gevonden, zo heeft Jennifer Stern van het Goddard Space Flight Center van de NASA en collega's in het laatste nummer van het wetenschappelijke vakblad Proceedings van de Amerikaanse Academie voor Wetenschappen bericht. Meteen is er weer een hint dat Mars misschien levensvatbaar is (geweest).
Het leven op Aarde heeft een bron nodig van chemisch gefixeerde stikstof voor de synthese van belangrijke biomoleculen. In een zoektocht naar stikstof op de Rode Planeet heeft de Curiosity nu aanwijzingen gevonden voor de aanwezigheid in Marsstof en in sedimenten van een potentiële vroegere oceaan op Mars van 70 tot 1100 ppm nitraat.
De stikstof die in de Marsbodem gefixeerd is, kan een primitieve stikstofkringloop op het oppervlak van het zeer jonge Mars mogelijk hebben gemaakt en daarmee een bioscheikundig toegankelijke stikstofbron, schrijven de wetenschappers.
Vorsers rond Gary King van de Lousiana State University meldden in een andere studie in de Proceedings een potentiële energiebron voor Marsmicroben uit de oertijd te hebben geïdentificeerd: koolstofmonoxide (CO), dat veel in de atmosfeer voorkomt, kan de stofwissel van mirco-organismen op en in de Marsbodem aandrijven. Volgens King zijn onlangs zoutminnende aardse bacterieën, die CO tot CO2 omwisselen, geëigende modelorganismen voor mogelijke dergelijke Marsmicroben.
Dar er mogelijk leven op Mars kan zijn geweest, wordt ook al aangegeven door het feit dat er een warmer en vochtiger klimaat op onze buurplaneet is geweest.
Wetenschap Australische wetenschappers claimen de grootste meteorietenkrater ter wereld te hebben ontdekt. Het ruimtepuin sloeg miljoenen jaren geleden in op aarde en veroorzaakte een krater van 400 kilometer doorsnee in het continent, zo meldt de Australian National University.
De krater zelf is niet meer zichtbaar. Die is inmiddels zo oud dat hij verdwenen is. Maar in bepaalde lagen in de grond is duidelijk te zien dat er ooit twee meteorieten van beide zeker tien kilometer in doorsnee zijn ingeslagen. Vermoedelijk splitste het stuk steen net voor de inslag in de aarde.
De onderzoekers, die hun bevindingen publiceerden in het geologische vakblad Tectonophysics, stellen dat de klap fataal geweest moet zijn voor veel levende organismen. Ze kunnen echter geen gekende extinctie aan de inslag linken. Mede daarom vermoeden ze dat de meteorieten meer dan 300 miljoen jaar geleden op de aarde insloegen.
Volgens de wetenschappers werpt de vondst van de inslagplek nieuw licht op de geschiedenis van de aarde. Tot nu toe wist niemand van deze krater, tot voor geothermisch onderzoek twee kilometer diep in de grond werd geboord.
Join Dark Journalist and his special guests as they unravel the treacherous path of The Breakaway Civilization, Deep State, Black Budget, UFO Secrecy, Covert Intelligence Ops, Advanced Technology, Secret Finance and more!
In this unique episode, besides a review of the very best clips of the past year with Coast to Coast AM Investigative Reporter Linda Moulton Howe, Former Assistant Housing Secretary Catherine Austin Fitts, Historian Richard Dolan, Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman, Former Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, Scholar Dr. Joseph P. Farrell and Professor Peter Dale Scott, Dark Journalist goes deeper into the matrix to map out the real terrain of life in the 21st century and reveals hidden power structures and an invisible elite that are attempting to centralize control of the planet by usurping traditional democracy to create a hierarchy of domination using clandestine structures in the deep state. These forces have access to secret advanced technology and trillions in public funds that were pilfered by a network of shadow financial institutions obscured from public view.
What is the real story of the Black Budget? Global Governance? Secret Space Program? UFO Technology? Ancient Human Ancestry? Media Manipulation? Political Blackmail? National Security State?
Who is really controlling our world and what is their end game? Are eighty-five wealthy individuals and six media corporations controlling the lives and future of seven billion people on planet earth? What is the goal of the technocratic empire and digital superstate that is being created while the vast majority of citizens are lulled into sleep and passivity with entertainment technology embedded in our personal devices and mind control in the corporate media?
Dark Journalist goes to the innovative edge of journalism and engages deeply with the courageous few who have stood up to the official reality and come forward to deliver the real and unsettling picture to an unsuspecting public, seeking out the hidden facts of our modern world from those who have studied it from a variety of highly specialized perspectives. You don’t want to miss their shocking conclusions!
This is the time for people everywhere to achieve personal freedom and embrace the truth, but we need to remember the Truth is Never Easy.
The Aluminum Wedge of Aiud is a wedge-shaped object found two kilometers east of Aiud, Romania, on the banks of the Mures River in 1974.
The object was reported to be unearthed 35 feet underground and alongside two mastodon bones. A mastodon is an extinct large tusked mammal species.
Physically, the artifact looked similar to the head of a hammer. The wedge was taken to the Archeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca to be examined, where it was found to be made of an alloy of aluminum encased in a thin layer of oxide.
The alloy of the wedge is composed of 12 different elements. This artifact is considered strange because aluminum was not discovered until 1808 and not produced in quantity until 1885.
Aluminium requires 1,000 degrees of heat to be made. The fact that the wedge was found in the same layer of earth as mastodon bones would make it at least 11,000 years old.
Many people have claimed that the artifact is proof that aliens visited Earth. Engineers have reported that the object resembles the foot of landing gear, not unlike the technology used on spaceships.
The scientific community believes the wedge was made on earth and its purpose is not yet identified. Due to the limited amount of information that exists on the subject, the antiquity and origin of the artifact is unclear.
The Aluminium Wedge of Aiud is not on display to the public and remains in an undisclosed location.
The object was allegedly taken to the Archeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca to be examined, where it was found to be made of an alloy of aluminum.
The wedge was also encased in a layer of oxide no less than a millimeter thick, which is said to indicate an age of at least 300 to 400 years old. It is not mentioned what dating technique was used.
According to the article mentioned above, by Boczor Iosif, it was examined a second time in Lausanne, Switzerland, with the same results. It was not mentioned which establishment carried out this second analysis.
Florin Gheorghita, for one, had the opportunity to examine the report, and the analysis performed under the direction of Dr. Niederkorn of the institute for the study of metals and of non-metallic minerals (ICPMMN), located in Magurele, Romania, emphasized that it is composed of a alloy of extremely complex metal.
Gheorghita affirms that the alloy is composed of 12 different elements, of which he has succeeded to establish also the volumetric percentage of the aluminum (89%).
He identified the presence of Copper (6,2%), silicon (2,84%),zinc (1,81%), lead (0,41%), pond (0,33%), zirconium(0,2%), cadmium (0,11%), nickel (0,0024%), cobalt (0,0023%), bismuth (0,0003%), silver (0,0002%), and gallium (in trace amounts).
Ex- Air Force Officer Says Two UFOs Crashed At Roswell
The Roswell Incident is undoubtedly the most influential UFO event. The official version goes something like this: in the summer of 1947 something crashed on a ranch 30 miles north of Roswell, New Mexico. The first press release was issued by public information officer Walter Haut on July 8, 1947. He stated that a “flying disk” had been recovered by military personnel.
All subsequent public statements denied this information, saying that the object was in fact a weather balloon. The US Military later revealed that the balloon was part of a top-secret operation destined to detect Soviet nuclear testing.
There are several inconsistencies in this story and numerous conspiracy theories revolve around the Roswell crash. Most of them dismiss the possibility of a balloon wreckage because of its relatively small size. The initial wreckage was scattered across a large area. Over the years, multiple eyewitness reports have surfaced, confirming this. Some of them mention exotic materials among the wreckage, as well as hieroglyphic markings on said materials. Quite a few of them mention the presence of bodies and detail the sense of urgency with which the military operations happened.
The vast majority of theories related to this incident explore the possibility of one crash occurring at Roswell but recently, an ex-Air Force official and UFO debunker claimed there wasn’t just one, but two of them happened in a few days’ interval.
Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French served more than 27 years in the military and participated in the famous Project Blue Book as an investigator and debunker. His duties involved collecting testimonies from people who had witnessed UFOs or alien phenomena and then shoot down their claims with rational explanations that were sometimes borderline offensive to the witnesses’ intelligence.
French was familiar with the procedure and well aware of the risk of something like the UFO phenomenon being confirmed by the military. According to him, they had to dismiss any and all alien theories in order to prevent a global event with catastrophic consequences. The fact that unknown creatures existed elsewhere in the universe and they had the ability to freely move around Earth would have destroyed the structure of religion. The military’s inability to manage this situation would have made them look helpless and the crisis would have further escalated.
According to French, the first flying object that crashed at Roswell was an alien spacecraft brought down by an experimental US airplane. It was shot and rendered uncontrollable by an electromagnetic pulse weapon. A few days later, a second UFO presumably came looking for survivors and was shot down using the same weapon. He claims to have browsed through folders of pictures and reports regarding the incidents.
French says he decided to come forward because the UFO cover-up operations have clearly gotten out of hand. He has faced strong opposition and the US Military discredits him and denies his allegations.
Why would an elderly ex-official forego almost three decades of service and come forward with such a statement? Some choose to discredit him and blame old age and a longing for celebrity. Others know better.
Regardless of the number of spacecraft crashed at Roswell, one thing is certain: something did happen there in 1947 and great efforts have been made to sweep it and keep it under the rug.
Being the advocate of a topic without having hard evidence is difficult. For the purpose of this article, let’s assume UFOs are real, although the vastness and age of the universe should be enough to safely infer that there are advanced beings out there and they’re capable of many feats we can’t even begin to imagine.
Let’s say that you’re the protagonist of a close encounter. You’re driving down a lone stretch of highway in the dead of night when you notice your car is making a strange whizzing sound. You slow down but the noise gets louder. Eventually your engine stalls and when you get out you finally notice it, hovering not twenty feet above your car. You rub your eyes in disbelief but it’s still there, humming, this behemoth of a unidentified flying object. You get a good glimpse of its unusual rounded shape, notice no propellers or jet exhausts and although you weren’t big on this whole deal about aliens and flying saucers you realize they were true all along.
A few moments later, the craft accelerates to a phenomenal speed unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and it’s gone. You take a look at your watch and figure out that the whole business lasted no more than a couple minutes. Good thing you weren’t abducted though. You get back in your car and then it hits you. You’ve just seen a UFO. You’re not drunk. You’re not high. You’re not on psychedelic drugs. You know what you saw and you understand the laws of physics enough to assume that whatever it is that you saw wasn’t from Earth. Overcoming your initial shock, you decide to notify the proper authorities. What do you think their response is going to be?
It would probably be something along the lines of “you saw an aircraft flying low” or a goddamn “weather balloon” or “the reflection of a passing vehicle in your windshield” or “the beam from a lighthouse” or any other defying explanation that would be an insult even to the intelligence of a 7-year old. They would tell you that you have no idea of what a spacecraft looks like since you’re a computer systems analyst. You’re not an expert in aeronautics, so go sleep it off! And keep it to yourself!
We could speculate about their reasons for cover-ups and denial all day long but that would just be a waste of time for both of us. They dismiss any witness account due to their lack of credentials or experience in the field of otherworldly vehicles. Don’t feel offended, they do this to seasoned military personnel as well. But there is a category of men and women they couldn’t possibly discredit: astronauts. They have to be familiar with flying objects, since that’s right up their alley, figuratively speaking.
So what can we do then with all their accounts of flying saucers? After all, they come from a trustworthy source, don’t they?
Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper and the historic launch of Faith7.
Let’s start with Col. Gordon Cooper. During his career he held the positions of aerospace engineer, test pilot, USAF pilot and one of the first seven astronauts in the first manned space program of the United States, Project Mercury. His first encounter of UFOs was while piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over Western Germany in 1951. He described them as metallic saucer-shaped discs flying at high altitude and capable of out-maneuvering any American fighter planes. On May 15, 1963 he set on a 22 orbit journey around the Earth in a Mercury capsule. On his final orbit, he told ground control in Muchea, Australia that a glowing greenish object was quickly approaching him. The object’s presence was confirmed by Muchea’s tracking radar. The NBC was covering the event live but reporters were not permitted to question Cooper upon his return. He has since denied this event. We can guess why.
In 1978 he addressed a UN committee, stating: “I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets… Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs.” He also stated that radar instruments pick up UFOs on a daily basis and there are thousands of witness reports kept secret in order to protect the masses.
During their second orbit in December 1965, Gemini astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman spotted an unidentified spacecraft. Gemini Control in Cape Kennedy told them that they were looking at their own booster rocket. Lovell replied that he could see the booster but there was something else as well. In June that same year, astronauts Ed White and James McDivitt had seen a weird metallic object while passing over Hawaii in their Gemini capsule. McDivitt took pictures of the object but they were never released.
Soviet cosmonauts Yevgeni Khrunov, Valery Ryumin, Leonid Popov and Pavel Popovich all had similar stories to tell. Another interesting incident was witnessed by Vladimir Kovalenko aboard the Salyut-6 space station on May 5, 1981. He described an elongated melon-shaped object of unknown origins. According to his report, the object behaved like nothing he had seen before, contorting, expanding and pulsating in a manner that defied physics.
And the quasi-cherry on top is the unconfirmed report from the first man to walk on the Moon, Neil Armstrong. Shortly after their historic landing on July 21, 1969 Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin reported seeing lights in a crater. The transmission was televised but when mission control required details all they heard was silence. Their communications continued uninterrupted but without broadcasting them to the general public. However, ham radio enthusiasts with their own VHF receivers were eavesdropping. This is what they heard: “These babies are huge, Sir! Enormous! Oh my God! You wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They’re on the Moon watching us!”
Before dismissing this as fake, consider that former Chief of NASA Communications Systems Maurice Chatelain confirmed Armstrong’s report. He said the encounter was common knowledge at NASA. Soviet scientists also support the existence of an alien moonbase. Some have went as far as saying that the reason manned missions are no longer sent to the Moon is that we’ve been specifically warned not to. But that’s fodder for another article.
In conclusion, we either have a diverse fleet of UFOs in our immediate vicinity or most of our astronauts are liars. Personally, I trust astronauts.
