    The Coventry UFO 'sightings' reported to police - from bright lights to glowing rockets

    Coventry has been a hotbed of potential UFO sightings over the years

    BY 

    Twelve UFO sightings have been reported to West Midlands Police in the past four years, new figures show.

    But the worried callers will have to wait a while longer to find out if we really are alone in the universe because none of the calls were investigated by officers.

    Ten of the alerts involved objects seen in the sky, mostly at night, the Birmingham Mail reports.

    Three reported seeing lights.

    The figures, from a Freedom of Information Act request, were published on West Midlands Police’s website and covered the years 2013 to 2016.

    Four calls came from Birmingham, and the rest from Sandwell, Coventry, Dudley, Solihull and Walsall.

    Asked how many were investigated, the force said: “Based on the graded response/log none of the calls were investigated”.

    Coventry UFO spotted above University of Warwick

    No other details were available but Coventry has been a hotbed of potential UFO sightings over the years.

    They range from a sighting of a massive tin-can shaped object with gold round the middle, to a glowing rocket steering upwards into the sky.

    Many of the sightings come with video and pictures taken at the time.

    And while they may not provide CONCLUSIVE proof of extraterrestrial intelligence targeting, the descriptions are certainly intriguing.

    The most recent ‘close encounter’ came on August 22 at the University of Warwick.

    The witness said: “I went for a short walk around 8.15pm behind my accommodation, i.e. Heronbank West, Heronbank, University of Warwick.

    While coming back, I happened to look at this glowing (because of the flame) cylindrical type object in the sky, steering upwards in a somewhat fast motion.

    “I was able to take a picture of it. But when I started taking a video, my phones battery died. My first reaction to that was ‘clearly it’s not a shooting star’.

    “It could be a rocket launch though. After gazing at it for about a minute, I walked inside my accommodation building.”

    On May 13, another spotter saw seven circular objects above the city through binoculars - they then drew them out for Mufon.

    Another sighting - again in Coventry - on March 15 involved ‘two bright lights which were ellipses initially but became circles’.

    The witness reported: “I was standing outside work having just finished a shift. A storm had just passed over and a beautiful rainbow was showing. I was taking photos of the rainbow and didn’t actually notice the lights in the frame.

    “I took a series of photos to catch as much of the rainbow as I could but after transferring to a memory chip I put them away and forgot about them. I was sorting through old memory chips a few days ago when I found these photos.

    “The first one showed a couple of ellipses with what appeared to be a solid centre. This was at 15.24 GMT. The next photo showed two large balls of light low to the ground and apparently in front of the lamp post.

    “The time of the photo was also 15.24 so the lights had moved very quickly.”

    Unexplained Roaring Noises Terrify Nottingham, England

    Residents of Nottingham, England were awoken over the weekend to a mysterious noise which seemed to emanate directly from the sky. The sound occurred throughout the night and early morning hours on May 27 and 28 and could be heard throughout the city center and surrounding suburbs. Mystified townsfolk described the sound as a “roaring” or “whooshing” sound and took to Twitter to express their shock and awe:

    It sounds like the war of the worlds in Nottingham at the moment. Unknown catastrophically loud noise every two minutes.

    Nottingham local Hayley Compton told the BBC that the noise was similar to a giant flame in the sky:

    For the last two mornings, I’ve heard a series of noises outside my house in Wollaton which sounds like a giant blowtorch. We went outside and it was really loud, I looked up into the sky expecting either to see flames or a very close aircraft of some sort.

    Nottingham police received dozens of similar reports about the noises but have yet to identify their source. On Reddit’s Nottingham subreddit, users began speculating what the source of the sound might be. Some of the more popular theories included UFOs, (naturally), noises generated by industrial machines at nearby factories, or even a hot air balloon. However, the frequency of the noise and timing would suggest that it’s probably not the latter.

    Although nighttime ballooning sounds pretty fun.

    There are a few factories nearby, but so far none have come forward as the source of the sounds.

    Meanwhile, similar noises were heard around the same time in nearby Derbyshire. With all of the unexplained and strange aerial phenomena being reported in the UK lately, these noises shouldn’t be taken lightly. Sure, there’s likely a prosaic origin of these sightings and sounds involving heavy industry, military testing or the like, but for now, these occurrences all add up to one big English mystery.

    Rendlesham Forest, UFOs, and a Faked Document

    As a (kind of) follow-up to my article on the controversy surrounding Marilyn Monroe, UFOs, and a questionable document, there is the matter of an equally controversial document that concerns the famous December 1980 UFO event at Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. The most widely accepted scenario within the UFO research community is that extraterrestrials landed/manifested in those dark woods in late December. There is talk of a small, intelligently controlled vehicle moving through the trees, of lights beaming down to a weapons-storage area in the vicinity, of bizarre activity in the woods, and of strange, dwarfish entities seen at close quarters.

    Rendlesham Forest alleged UFO landing site

    There is, however, absolutely no doubt at all that this particular document is completely and utterly bogus. I mention it, though, in the event that it might catch your attention and provoke a “WTF?!” response. The document is actually a letter, written on British Ministry of Defense paperwork and is undated. It reads (without interruption) as follows:

    QUOTE: “Dear [Deleted], As you know, OSI has completed a report on the landing of a craft of unknown origin crewed by several entities near RAF Bentwaters on the night of December 29/30 1980. Interestingly, OSI reports that the entities were approximately 1 1/2 metres tall, wore what appeared to be nylon-coated pressure suits, but no helmets. Conditions on the night were misty, giving the appearance that the entities were hovering above ground level.

    “Tape recordings were made on which the entities are heard to speak in an electronically synthesized version of English, with a strong American accent. Similar transmissions intercepted (possible word omitted) irregularly by NSA since 1975. According to OSI, entities had claw-like hands with three digits and an opposable thumb. Despite original reports, OSI said the craft was not damaged but landed deliberately as part of a series of visits to SAC bases in USA and Europe. Reports that craft was repaired by US servicemen or was taken on to the base are not confirmed by OSI.

    “Landing is not considered a Defence issue in view of the overt peaceful nature of the contact, but investigations by DS8 are to be continued on [Deleted] authority. Precautionary plan for counter-information at a local level involving [Deleted] and a [Deleted] is strongly recommended.” END OF QUOTE

    Well, that’s quite a story! But, a story is all it is.

    The document was reproduced in the 1986 paperback edition of a book on the Rendlesham Forest affair titled Sky Crash. The authors were Brenda Butler, Dot Street, and Jenny Randles. In their book, the authors note that the “memo” – sent to the team as a photocopy – was received in early 1984. They added that, “We have investigated it…and our conclusion is that it is a deliberate fake by certain parties, whose identities are strongly suspected by us.” They concluded: “This hoax has clearly been planned to test us or, more likely, to impugn our credibility should we fall for the trick. We call their bluff.”

    I recall how several colleagues in Ufology, in the 1990s, sent copies of the “document” to the British Ministry of Defense, asking for an opinion on it. MoD staff did not avoid commenting on it. They were careful to make it very clear that it was what it really is: a hoax. Ironically, because copies of the document were sent to the MoD for comment, they ended up in the MoD’s “Rendlesham File.” And when, years later, that same “Rendlesham File” was finally declassified, people who accessed it saw the fake document in the file! I know from emails I got at the time, that this created a few issues for people who assumed the document was the real deal! It is, perhaps, for this very reason that I know some people still hang onto the possibility that the document is genuine. But, trust me, it ain’t.

    The Most Interesting Science News Articles of the Week

    Each week we uncover the most interesting and informative articles from around the world, here are 10 of the coolest stories in science this week.

    Archaeologists in England discovered a Neolithic earthwork and burial site that could date back to 2000 B.C.

    A 4,000-year-old henge monument, containing five well-preserved human burials, has been discovered in England, archaeologists announced.

    Archaeologists still debate the purpose and the origin of henges, but researchers know that the earthworks started showing up in the British Isles in the third and early second millennia B.C. Most of these monuments contain no traces of everyday activity, and some feature burials or are aligned with cosmic phenomena. So, some researchers believe henges must have had some sort of ceremonial or ritual significance. [Read more about the henge monument.]

    Stock up on emergency supplies and get those galoshes ready — this year's hurricane season is likely to be a big one.

    This year, there is a 45 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 35 percent chance of a near-normal season and just a 20 percent chance of below-normal activity, NOAA reported. [Read more about the upcoming season.]

    A spot in England where thousands of Viking warriors and their families spent their winter months was bigger than most contemporary English towns.

    "These extraordinary images offer a fascinating snapshot of life at a time of great upheaval in Britain," University of York archaeologist Julian Richards said in a statement. [Read more about the Viking wanderings.]

    The perplexing cosmic object known as "Boyajian's star" is once again exhibiting a mysterious pattern of dimming and brightening that scientists have tried to explain with hypotheses ranging from swarms of comets to alien megastructures.

    The brightness changes exhibited by Boyajian don't show the kind of regularity that is typical of a planet's orbit around its star, and scientists can't see how the changes could be explained by a system of planets. [Read more about the dimming star.]

    Four baby squirrels get their tails tangled in Bangor, Maine.

    A quartet of adorable baby squirrels recently got into quite a sticky predicament.

    Andrew Day saw the ensemble of squirrels hobbling across the grass with their tails fused "like a giant dreadlock, Day told The Bangor Daily News. After capturing a video of the odd scene, Day took the squirrels to a veterinarian, who liberated them. [Read more about the cute squirrels.]

    Alcohol and marijuana may be the most commonly used recreational drugs in the world, but "magic" mushrooms appear to be the safest, a new survey finds.

    The Global Drug Survey is a London-based research group that's focused on making drug use safer. The results of the 2017 survey were published today (May 24) and included responses from more than 115,000 people from 50 countries. [Read more about the ratings.]

    It's a plane, it's a blimp … it's the world's largest aircraft.

    On May 10, the Airlander 10 flew for a total of 180 minutes to test the aircraft's handling, improved landing technology and more, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles. This was only the third flight of the Airlander 10. It first debuted as HAV-304, and successfully flew in 2012 as part of the U.S. Army’s Long Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle program. The reimagined and modified Airlander 10 made its maiden voyage in August 2016, kicking off a flight test program to assess the aircraft's performance and attempting to fly the airship farther away from its base in Cardington, England.

    A new study finds 52 genes that are related to intelligence — a rousing success in a field that has often struggled to find correlations between smarts and genes.

    These genes "are basically a tip of the iceberg," Posthuma told Live Science. "But there are still a lot more genes that are important for intelligence." [Read more about intelligence genes.]

    A botulism outbreak has killed one man and sickened nine other people who ate nacho cheese sauce contaminated with the toxic bacterial protein. Heath officials traced the outbreak to a gas station in California's Sacramento County.

    The toxin blocks nerve messages, which, in turn, causes people to lose control of their muscles, Chapman told Live Science. For instance, people who have consumed the toxin may have trouble swallowing, droopy eyelids and difficulty breathing, he said. [Read more about the tainted cheese.]

    Mouse sperm preserved on the International Space Station for nine months gave rise to healthy pups, a new study reveals.

    This work also raises the possibility of a "doomsday vault" for sperm in space that could help preserve animal species from disasters on Earth, much as the Global Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway, does for plant species. The sperm-vault idea is similar to one depicted in a novel by the author of "A Game of Thrones," scientists added. [Read more about the mouse sperm.]

    A Model Series: Six Of The Best From UFO

    UFO is currently being broadcast on Forces TV at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. We’ve restored some beautiful pictures of our favourite models from the show.

    Let us know your favourites and make sure you watch UFO this weekend!

    The SHADO Rocket
    The SHADO Rocket

    Only featuring in one episode (The Man Who Came Back) and located at The Cape, the rocket is one of our favourite models because of how incredible the launch sequence is. Check out the video above to see it in its full glory.

    The MoonBase Interceptor
    The MoonBase Interceptor

    Designed by Mike Trim and then revised by Derek Meddings. Armed with a single nuclear missile distinctively attached to the front of the craft, SHADO’s first line of defence against the UFO attacks.

    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module
    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module

    The gorgeous Lunar Carrier is responsible for flight within the Earth’s atmosphere. It carries the Lunar Module which is released into the upper atmosphere before flying on to the Lunar Base.

    The Lunar Mobile
    The Lunar Mobile

    Charged with ground defence of the Moonbase and equipped with rocket launchers. These fantastic models still look incredibly modern.

    The Skydiver
    The Skydiver

    It’s never said how many Skydivers are patrolling the oceans in UFO. If a UFO penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere SHADO launchers a fighter to intercept it.

    One of our favourite episodes, Sub Smash, will be broadcast on Sunday, June 4, at 6pm. It features a damaged Skydiver in the dept

    A UFO

    hs of the ocean.

    A UFO

    The aggressor itself, the UFO. Pronounced as “You-FO”. They have a transparent outer shell protecting an opaque core.

    Capable of travelling at 12 times the speed of light but forced to slow down in the atmosphere, these are a force to be reckoned with.

    UFO continues at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday on the Forces TV Channel, Sky 264, Virgin 277 and Freesat 165

    Inside the 'UFO state' of Nevada: Cruising the Extraterrestrial Highway and hearing eye-opening tales from the owner of the Little A'Le'Inn by Area 51 makes for an out-of-this-world trip

    •  Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base
    • To find out more MailOnline dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, near the installation
    • There we spoke to owner Pat, who told us tales of strange craft 'really weird manoeuvres at high speed'

    They say that Nevada has the loneliest roads in the whole of America.

    You can certainly travel for hundreds of miles and not see a single person. But are you really alone?

    After all, Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base, where many say alien technology is being analysed – and it even has a road called the 'Extraterrestrial Highway'.

    To find out more MailOnline Travel dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, the nearest town to Area 51, to have a chat with the owner about the area’s strange goings on.

    Pat, the owner, has lived in Rachel all her life.

    To say it's a small town is an understatement - only 50 people live there.

    She is utterly convinced that Area 51 is testing alien life and is adamant she has seen UFOs.

    The 63-year-old said: 'I have actually watched a craft do manoeuvres. It was probably 15 years ago. I can tell you I was just coming home with my niece. It was in a place where there were things that just should never have been there.

    Many people around the world have their theories, but local knowledge is always the best. MailOnline visited the Little A'Le'Inn cafe and chatted to the owner, Pat, about her out-of-this-world experiences

    THE MYSTERIOUS PASSENGER JETS THAT FLY FROM LAS VEGAS TO AREA 51 

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    In August 2016 it was revealed that a number of passenger planes were flying from Las Vegas McCarran Airport to Area 51.

    They don't carry any company logos – they're plain white with a red band down the side - and anyone who boards one is sworn to secrecy about where they're going and what they do for a living.

    The reason that the aircraft, mostly Boeing 737s, are so shadowy in nature, is because they serve America's most secret military base.

    But why are they there and what do they do? A Las Vegas taxi driver who served as a pilot for these aircraft said: 'The people there (at Area 51) are not like us.'  

    'It did really weird manoeuvres at high speed. I think we work side by side with alien beings – can I prove it? No. But I feel that. Just the shape of it – it was a saucer shape. It could have been a new technology that we were never aware of yet. But things just happen like that.

    'We told reporters of a sighting that had happened and they did their report. They got part way up the road and saw this thing and they got scared and came back.

    'They came inside and said “I want a shot of tequila” and then he told us their story.

    'They couldn't get to their cameras as there was actually a vehicle that they couldn't describe. It was really awesome.’

    A sign that all is perhaps not as it seems: Rachel in Nevada is the nearest town to Area 51

    Other locals are also convinced that aliens have landed.

    She continued: 'Some of them (the locals) have their own stories. Other people don't talk about it. We have one lady who was followed from Alamo to here by a craft. She could see it. She feels the only reason she didn't get abducted was because she was over child-bearing age. Can I prove it? No, but that was what she told me.

    'Many people have seen things happen over the years. Strange things. I think we've had beings too – I think about three. We had one who came and attended a conference and we were in the building and in 12 hours he never used the bathroom, never drank anything or ate anything.

    'Can I prove it? No. But I can tell you what happened. I think he was an alien being – I think a lot of them are just like humans.’

    Pat talks about aliens almost as if they were an accepted part of life.

    She added: ‘It's kind of common knowledge in these parts that they exist. It's not to be afraid of. Everybody talks about – it's been going on so long.' 

    NEVADA'S OTHER BIZARRE ATTRACTIONS

    There are many places to visit between Las Vegas and the Extraterrestrial Highway (State Route 375) in Nevada.

    Around two hours north-west of the city you will find yourself in the ghost town that is Rhyolite.

    There you will find whacky art displays, including the ghost sculpture of the Last Supper.

    Further up the road there is an abandoned school, pub and jail from the early 1900s, which is intriguing.

    One hour's drive north from here is a tiny place called Tonopah. This town was once the home of a mining industry worth $2million.

    But real estate and gaming became big business throughout central Nevada and by 1910 the town of Tonopah had less than half the population it had 15 years earlier.

    The Mizpah Mine still exists and has now become an attraction for visitors.

    If you are staying in Tonopah, it is recommended that you stay in the Mizpah Hotel.

    The hotel is said to house a ghost deemed 'the Lady in Red' by guests who have experienced her presence.

    A book at the reception of the hotel has regular updates of similar ghost sightings and experiences from guests who have stayed there.

    Many Strange Encounters with UFOs and Mysterious Creatures in Pennsylvania During 2015

    Case File Details

    by Stan Gordon

    Did you see anything strange in the sky last year?  Were you out in the woods and encountered a mysterious animal unlike anything that you had ever seen before? Did you experience an incident that you couldn’t find an explanation for?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you were not alone. Many Residents from across the state of Pennsylvania reported numerous observations of strange lights and objects in the sky throughout 2015. Some claimed to have seen formations of glowing lights, while others reported encountering spherical, cigar, triangular and rectangular objects from many locations of the Keystone state.

    Even stranger were reports from many locations of encounters with mysterious creatures. Sightings of  Bigfoot have historically been recorded for years, and these incidents continue to be reported annually, There were reports of huge birds with massive wingspans (thunderbirds) and even black panthers that are not common to this part of the world. Some creature reports were even stranger.

    Citizens of Pennsylvania reported many types of strange incidents including seeing strange footprints, hearing frightening howls, whoops and screams from nearby woods, observing odd clouds, seeing fireballs crossing the sky, and experienced loud mystery booms that shook their homes. Some reported various paranormal experiences including capturing strange images on their cameras. As in past years, the majority of anomalies reported concern unusual lights and objects in the sky.

    My interest in strange occurrences began in 1959, when I began to record and document mysterious incidents that were occurring in my home state of Pennsylvania. I was 16 years old in 1965 when the Kecksburg UFO incident occurred in Westmoreland County, and I began to document details about what  had taken place. I began to conduct in the field investigations of UFO and cryptid reports after that incident, and set up a hotline in 1969, for the public to report UFO sightings and other unusual accounts. After so many years of interest in these strange occurrences, I still have never seen a UFO or Bigfoot.

    I continue to record such incidents that come to my attention yearly via phone or email. Today there are many other researchers and organizations who also receive Pennsylvania reports. Some of these  resources gathering this information include the National UFO Reporting Center, The Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society, the PA Chapter of MUFON, Jim Brown of Jim’s Destinations, and Lon Strickler of “Phantoms & Monsters.” I maintain contact with many UFO and Bigfoot investigators statewide and across the country.

    When I began my field investigations many years ago into various phenomena, it became apparent that many incidents that initially sounded unusual, when properly investigated, were found to be explainable and determined to be of manmade or natural origin. Many UFO sightings are found to have logical explanations and over the years some observations were explained as bright planets and stars, brilliant meteors or re-entry of space debris, lights on aircraft, satellites, NASA high altitude tests, searchlight beams, lights reflecting off of insects, Chinese lanterns, and remote control aircraft. And now we have to deal with quadcopters (drones) with led displays.

    Some Bigfoot sightings were only misidentifications of bear or large shaggy dogs. Others were camouflaged hunters in the woods. Many strange footprints were normal tracks that had been distorted by weather and ground conditions. The point is that many anomalies of various types can be explained. Not every UFO and cryptid encounter, however, can be so easily explained away.

    While strange encounters are reported from many widespread locations from across the state, one of the most active areas for such unusual incidents continues to be along the Chestnut Ridge that covers sections of Westmoreland, Fayette, and Indiana Counties.

    The following are some of the interesting incidents that came to my attention in 2015.

    March 12, 2015- Two people had gone out to do some late night shopping near Monessen, located in the Mon Valley area. As they passed under a bridge, the car headlights struck a nine feet tall man-like creature that was covered with black hair that was standing along the side of a road.  As soon as the lights hit it, the creature squinted its eyes and turned and tilted its head. The couple stared at the creature for about 15 seconds then quickly left the area. About 50 feet away from where they saw the creature, they noticed a terrible odor. The Mon valley has had a long history of Bigfoot sightings.

    March 16, 2015- Numerous sources received information of a loud boom that shook houses that evening over a wide area of Fayette County from Connellsville to Uniontown. About the same time odd lights were reportedly seen in the area, which were followed by observations of an unusual amount of helicopter activity. A similar mystery boom was reported the night before in Allegheny County.

    April 17, 2015- During the evening at a rural location in Westmoreland County not far from West Newton, two people were sitting off a country road and observed a bright white light in the sky moving in their direction which began to make a circular motion. The solid round white object, which made no sound, approached closer to them and hovered over some trees. Suddenly, the car and the area around it became illuminated by a dim white light that was emitted from the hovering object. The witnesses quickly left the area.

    April 18, 2015- At a rural location in Greene County not far from Waynesburg, a driver observed what looked like a tall upright figure covered with hair moving quickly up a hillside near a construction site.

    April 18, 2015- During the early morning hours, a witness located in a rural area near South Greensburg saw what looked like a tall dark figure in the yard. Later at that location, a large unusual footprint was found that measured approximately 16.5 inches long and 8 inches wide. In past years, other strange creature encounters have been reported from this general area.

    April 21, 2015- Around 10:30 AM, a couple was driving between Parker and East Brady in Butler County when they saw a bright flash of light in the sky. The flash appeared to have been the sun reflecting for a moment off the surface of a very large solid object that appeared to be off in the distance over the Allegheny River. The witnesses pulled over to take a better look. The object looked solid black and rectangular shaped and looked to have 4 rows of windows or indentations on its surface. The object entered a large dark cloud that was nearby. The man readied his camera to photograph the object when it exited the cloud, but after 45 minutes, the object was never seen again.

    May 8, 2015- Two people driving up a hill during the afternoon in North Huntingdon Township observed a silver metallic “pill” shaped elongated object that was rounded on the ends. The object was moving rapidly across the sky and was soon blocked by trees. When they reached an open view the object was not seen again. There have been many UFO sightings reported around the Irwin and North Huntingdon areas for years.

    August 28, 2015- In the distant evening sky over the Laurel Ridge near Ligonier, witnesses observed an object that looked like a clear bubble with a fuzzy looking outside edge. As the witnesses watched, the strange object suddenly dropped straight down from the sky towards the ground. They expected there to be an impact and explosion but they neither heard nor saw anything after that. Many strange events have occurred over the years around both the Laurel Mountain area and Chestnut Ridge.

    Late August-Early September, 2015- This incident took place around 5 PM on a sunny afternoon as the witness was taking a leisurely drive in eastern Butler County. Suddenly, 15-20 feet ahead of the vehicle and about ¾ of the way across the road, a being that was hard to describe was moving from right to left in front of the car. Whatever this thing was, it had a skinny body, stood about 4-4 ½ feet tall, and was similar to the color of a deer.

    The head looked somewhat like that of a deer but was not real pointy. It narrowed at the top then rounded off. The creature was observed only from the side. The arms were very short and were held close to the chest. The hands were quite small and looked as though they were carrying something or being held together. No legs or feet were observed. The driver said the thing just “glided” above the roadway. When the witness reached the location on the road where the creature had been, it was no longer seen. The witness could not understand how the thing was just gone in a matter of seconds.

    September, 2015- A witness reported seeing a huge black bird with a wingspan estimated to be over 15 feet wide that wasn’t flapping its wings, but just soaring through the sky. The sighting took place near the Cedar Street exit outside of Greensburg.  This area has had a history of thunderbird reports. There were other reports of giant bird sightings from across the state during the year.

    September-October 2015- Numerous reports of triangular objects were reported from various locations.

    On September 1, 2015, a witness near Springdale located about 18 miles NE of Pittsburgh observed a very bright white light toward the west that evening.  As the light got closer, an unusual loud sound was heard unlike that of jet or propeller aircraft. As the object passed low overhead, it appeared to be huge and was not any type of aircraft the witness was familiar with. The observer looked up at the bottom of a solid boomerang shaped object that had evenly spaced dim white spotlights that were all non-blinking  along the edge of the underside of the object. The underbelly of the object had a greenish tinge. The object moved toward the east, then banked to the south and moved out of sight.

    In early October at a rural location between Fayette and Westmoreland counties, a man walked outside of his home around 11 AM and looked up to see the bottom of a very large solid black triangular object that had appeared to have four exhaust vents. The object was moving very slowly about 500 feet above the ground and was completely silent. The man grabbed his cell phone which was completely charged to take a picture. When he aimed at it, the phone reportedly lost all power and would not function. This effect has been reported by other witnesses over the years.

    November 23, 2015- At about 2 PM, a married couple was driving on a rural road about 2 miles from Ligonier. The driver noticed some movement in the bushes to the right of the road. Suddenly, an animal began to trot from right to left about 10-20 feet ahead of the car. The car was stopped as both witnesses watched something quite strange.

    The animal was four legged and looked somewhat like a fox. However, they could only see the outline of the animal, as this creature was not solid, and no color or fur was observed. The husband told me that the animal had a “smoky veil shape” but his wife who had a longer look at it stated that she could “see through it.” She also said that there was a specific area within the body shape that was like an energy pattern. They watched as the animal entered the woods to their left and never saw it again.

    December 24, 2015- At about 9 PM, a witness was outside when he noticed a solid triangular object southwest of Greensburg. There were a number of non-blinking lights on the silent object which was approaching closer to the witness location. The witness grabbed a floodlight and aimed it towards the object. As soon as the light hit the object, it disappeared and was not seen again.

    December 9, 2015, was the 50th anniversary of the Kecksburg, PA UFO crash-landing incident.

    Late that afternoon in 1965, a brilliant fiery object was observed over a widespread area. That object reportedly fell from the sky into a wooded ravine near that Mount Pleasant Township community.  Soon after the object fell, many eyewitnesses reported military personnel arriving in that area to search for the fallen object.

    The object was reportedly taken away from that location on a military flatbed tractor trailer truck where it was transported first to Lockbourne  Air Force Base in Ohio for a short stay over. The truck then continued on to Wright Patterson Air Force Base where it ended its journey. There have been many theories brought forth over the years as to what the object was that fell near Kecksburg in 1965. What that object was remains open for speculation.

    UFO Sightings: Kurt Russell Talks Being Witness To Famous ‘Phoenix Lights’ Incident

    UFO sightings have been a regular occurrence since time out of mind, and one of the most popular UFO events in the last century happened in Phoenix, Arizona. Famously referred to as the “Phoenix Lights,” the UFO sighting, which happened in 1997, was reportedly witnessed by thousands of people. Twenty years since the incident, veteran Hollywood actor Kurt Russell finally opened up about being a witness to the event. And he was no regular witness, either. He didn’t see the alleged UFO from the ground looking up, he saw it from behind the cockpit of the private aircraft he was flying.

    Kurt Russell got the opportunity to talk about his UFO experience in an interview with BBC One’s The One Show,where he promoted Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 alongside co-star Chris Pratt, as reported by Open Minds.

    The interview took an interesting turn when host Gyles Brandret pulled out a folder with the letters “Top Secret” written on it. In reading the folder’s contents, Brandret told a story about an unidentified pilot who was flying a private plane with his son near the Phoenix airport. The unnamed pilot reportedly called the control tower to report that they saw six mysterious lights. The control tower promptly responded, saying that they hadn’t detected any planes in the area.

    Brandreth capped the story by exclaiming, “Mystery unresolved!”

    Pratt, who affected an incredulous look on his face throughout the account, admitted that he was a skeptic when it comes to UFO sightings. Kurt Russell, on the other hand, has been wearing a mischievous grin all along.

    And then out of nowhere, Russell, 66, said that he and his son Oliver Hudson (Goldie Hawn’s son from her first marriage) flew a private aircraft from Los Angeles to Phoenix in 1995 so that he could take Oliver to see his girlfriend.

    “We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” Kurt continues.

    Russell recalled that Hudson asked him if he knew what the lights were. When he said that he didn’t know, they contacted the control tower, who said that their radar didn’t find anything. Russell and his son then decided that they may have witnessed a UFO sighting.

    The two never made mention of the UFO sighting again after they landed, at least until two years later, when Kurt came home one day to see Hudson watching a TV show reporting on a UFO sighting that occurred in Phoenix.

    “That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” Russell added.

    Kurt Russell recalled feeling like “Richard Dreyfuss from Close Encounters” while watching the show, and his suspicion was confirmed when the show mentioned that an unnamed general aviation pilot reported the UFO sighting to a control tower upon landing. “That was me,” Kurt remembered thinking to himself.

    Russell then checked his log books, proving without a shadow of a doubt that his flight happened at the time of the popular UFO event.

    “The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally, out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” he said.

    The “Phoenix Lights” incident remains to be one of the most talked about UFO sightings even two decades later, according to Fox 10. The event has spawned a plethora of theories as to what could have caused the strange lights to appear in the sky that night. For two decades, skeptics and believers debated over the light’s origins.

    Even to this day the “Phoenix Lights” incident remains a mystery.

    Around half a century ago, when NASA's Apollo missions were taking brave men to play golf on the moon, the idea of extraterrestrials was the province of science-fiction authors and acid-tripping dreamers.

    How times change. Today, the press is full of stories about planets and moons, near and far, pregnant with the possibilities of life.

    We read about abundant hydrogen on Saturn's moon Enceladus, a sign, perhaps, of microbial activity. We note another of Saturn's moons, Titan, likely boasts a subterranean ocean, surely the harbour of something twitching.

    Then we thrill to the suggestion that the planet Proxima b, four light years away, could support life if its climate is right. And we wonder, enthralled, about the Trappist-1 system, seven planets orbiting a star 39 light years distant, a couple of which, astronomers tell us, are in just the right orbits to be warm and wet and friendly.

    The expectation now is palpable: surely, within our lifetimes, we will detect at least a bacterium, some weird arsenic-based extremophile by a thermal vent in an underground sea, or a smear of purple anaerobic slime beneath a rock on the edge of a liquid methane lake.

    But is this expectation based on solid science, or romance, or a barely sublimated need to assert that we are not alone in a vast and godless universe?

    "The change is for no reason that I can put my finger on," says Paul Davies. "I've lived through this pendulum swing. Now the whole scientific community is charging down the direction that holds the universe is teeming with life, and I'm now the voice of caution, saying: 'Hold on, hold on, you have no basis for that belief'."

    Davies' objections are not to be lightly dismissed. He is, after all, perhaps the most distinguished astrobiologist alive, not to mention a quantum physicist of such import that two of the field's fundamental constructs bear his name (the Fulling-Davies-Unruh effect, and the Bunch-Davies vacuum state, for those taking notes.)

    Based these days at the University of Arizona's Centre for Fundamental Concepts in Science, he is also the head of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Post-Detection Science and Technology Task Group of the International Academy of Aeronautics.

    And years ago he used to teach at Adelaide and Macquarie universities. So, even though he lives in the United States and was born in England, we can kind of, sort of, claim him as an Aussie. It's not a sustainable claim, of course, but, he would suggest, it has more evidential weight behind it than the notion that the cosmos is crawling with amoeba-things and all that's left to do is find them.

    Back in the '60s, Davies says, most serious astronomers were convinced there were planets throughout the universe, even though technology at the time was insufficient to detect them.

    Indeed, in 1961, an astronomer called Frank Drake came up with an equation to predict the probability of intelligent life emerging anywhere in the universe. In his 2010 book, The Eerie Silence, Davies calls it "not so much an equation in the conventional mathematical sense, more of a way to quantify our ignorance".

    Seven years later, he maintains that we're still thick.

    "Nothing has changed except our expectations," he says. "The big unknown is the fraction of planets on which life emerges, and we have no idea what that number is and no way to quantify it because we don't know what the process was. You can't estimate the odds of an unknown process. We know almost no more about it today than we did in the '60s."

    The difficulty in all this – and perhaps the only point of consensus among astrobiologists – is that we don't know how groups of molecules, non-living matter, coalesce and combine to become living. What is the animating spark? Or, more prosaically, what is the minimum level of complexity for a living organism?

    The main reason for this shortcoming is that the only life we have to study is the stuff found here on Earth. Given that everything, from cholera bacteria to Bactrian camels to Justin Bieber, descended from a single common ancestor, we have a sample size of just one – which is a hopeless number from which to draw generalised conclusions.

    Without another evolutionary tree to compare, Davies points out, we have no idea what aspects of Earth life are specific just to our mob, and what aspects are "law-like" – common to all life right across the universe.

    This is very much his field: he is tasked with examining the fundamentals of science (he also advises space agencies, and pursues cancer research, but let's stick to the big picture here).

    Lately, this work has been taking him in a fascinating, if controversial, direction. In a recently published paper – a sketch, really, for a book he is working on – he and colleague Sara Imari Walker suggest that the real law-like essential for life to emerge anywhere in the universe is not biology or even chemistry, but information.

    The processing of information, the pair wrote, might be the causal agent at the bottom of all life. Things such as water, carbon and DNA might be just local-level stuff, not required by extraterrestrial life forms.

    Davies and Walker also make the point that if their assumption is correct then, even if we do encounter alien organisms, we quite possibly won't recognise them. The problem of life, they conclude, might "ultimately not be reducible to known physical principles".

    "That's principles not yet known, rather than principles that can never be known," Davies is quick to point out. "We're open to the suggestion that there may be new physics that will be uncovered by studying biology. That's different to saying that all of biology can be explained by using physics already known."

    It is entirely reasonable, he says, to define all living things as information-processing systems. It is also reasonable to define them, as physicists do, in terms of energy and matter and the forces that govern their interactions.

    But suggesting the two explanations are simply different ways of expressing the same thing is wrong.

    "Where you can't get away with that is with the origin of life," he says. "Because, somehow, out of blind and purposeless forces at the molecular level, somehow out of that sort of melee, an informational system had to emerge."

    Probing that mystery, he suggests, is where new physics principles will be found.

    Other things, too, may emerge, not the least of which could be a profoundly new discussion around the relationship between science and religion.

    Most of Davies' colleagues are atheists, if for no other reason than because physics seems by definition to exclude the supernatural. He himself, however, has long had a subtler, more nuanced position. In his 1992 bestseller, The Mind of God, he suggested that conscious beings manifest self-awareness in the universe and that, thus, "we are truly meant to be here".

    The use of the word "meant" occasioned much spirited debate, on the not unreasonable grounds that it implied a creative intention – and a creator, perhaps – buried deep in the workings of the cosmos.

    For Davies, however, it is not he but those who work beside him who are falling prey to religious thought – precisely because they believe the universe is teeming with life. "Once we get rid of the idea of miracles, are we happier with the idea of life as a freak accident on one planet alone," he asks, "or are we more comfortable in a universe that is fundamentally bio-friendly?"

    It's a critical question, he points out. The odds of inanimate molecules transforming into living matter are gazillions to one. The odds of it happening more than once are gazillions-squared to one, and the odds of it happening billions of times are infinitesimal.

    For that to come to pass, there has to be something more, a life-friendly principle at work that rises above brute probability.

    "That's a religious position," he says.

    "Now, I would feel very comfortable living in such a universe, knowing that we're not the result of some freak chemical quirk. We would know that we're actually deeply embedded in the great cosmic scheme of things – part of the grand cosmic plan, if you like.

    "So, for me, the notion that life is intrinsically built into the nature of the universe is deeply pleasing, and close to a religious belief. But that's also the reason that I'm so sceptical."

    Paul Davies will be one of the speakers at an event titled Life on Mars: NASA's 2020 Rover Mission, on August 17 at the Sydney Opera House. Tickets on sale now.

    Detecting Life In Space: The Red Edge

    Originally published on May 23, 2017 3:52 pm

    The universe's "most interesting star" just started acting up again.

    Known as KIC 8462852, or the WTF star (for "Where's The Flux"), this sun became famous a few years ago for its strange short-lived dips in light output. Its behavior was weird enough that astronomers added "alien megastructures" to the long list of possible explanations for WTF star's changes in brightness. My twitter feed was lighting up this weekend as WTF star started, once again, to show a pronounced diminution.

    The excitement over WTF star is, ultimately, about finding evidence for life on other planets. But even without alien megastructures (which are probably not going to be the explanation), WTF star highlights the remarkable range of ways astronomers might be able to find evidence for life on distant planets.

    Since we'll be staring hard at thousands of these worlds over the next few decades, each kind of life detection method is exciting in its own right. That's why today I want to introduce you to "The Red Edge" (which, also, just sounds pretty cool).

    The story starts with one of space exploration's greatest tragedies.

    Back in 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded during launch, killing the entire crew. The loss was devastating for so many reasons, but one of its consequences was that the Galileo mission to Jupiter was left without a launch vehicle. The plan had been for it to ride a shuttle into space, where a powerful booster would then send it on to a half-billion-or-so-mile ride to the solar system's largest world. In the aftermath of the Challenger disaster, NASA scientists were forced to launch Galileo using a less powerful booster, placing it onto a complicated trajectory that used the gravity of a number of planets to slingshot the spacecraft out to Jupiter. In particular, Galileo first headed inward to Venus and then back to Earth — twice — picking up speed with each gravity "assist." It was during these Earth-return fly-bys that scientists came to the novel idea of viewing our planet as if it were an alien world.

    The idea was, in part, Carl Sagan's. As Galileo passed by Earth, it trained its instruments on our planet and recorded the light it reflected from the sun. In this way, scientists could run an experiment to see if Earth's light "signal" could reveal the presence of life.

    Of all the features the scientists found in the Earth-light, one of the most important came in the form of a sharp change in our planet's reflectance just past the wavelengths of red light. Reflectance means how much of the sunlight falling on the planet gets bounced back into space. Low reflectance means much of the light is being absorbed, while high reflectance means the opposite. The Galileo data showed that Earth's reflectance depended strongly on the light's color (meaning its wavelength). Most of the light in the visible spectrum was strongly absorbed. But around the wavelength of red light (past a half of a millionth of meter) the reflectance shot up. This wall in the reflectance curve was known from remote sensing studies and was called The Red Edge. In a paper titled "A Search for Life on Earth From The Galileo Spacecraft," Sagan and his co-authors highlighted the planet's absorption and reflection properties as one of four critical pieces of data that confirmed Earth was, in fact, a living world.

    But what causes the Red Edge and why might it be a cosmic life-detector? The answer lies within even the most lowly houseplant.

    Almost all of the world's vegetation will strongly absorb light in the blue and green parts of the spectrum. Much of this is due to photosynthesis, since these are the wavelengths of light plants absorb to make sugars and power their metabolism. At longer wavelengths, the leaves have no need to absorb sunlight, so they've evolved to reflect this light back into space. So what Galileo was seeing as it flew by Earth was the combined absorbing power of an entire planet's worth of vegetation.

    Of course, Sagan and other astronomers knew that what works for Earth may work for alien worlds, too. Maybe we could detect Red Edges in the spectra from other worlds. If so, wouldn't that be proof of alien life and, even better, of full alien biospheres?

    Astronomers are now deep in their "exo-planet" revolution. That means they're learning how to probe the light from these worlds in ways that, in principle, mimic what Galileo did for Earth. The crucial difference, of course, is distance. These planets are light-years away. That means we get just a minute fraction of the light they reflect from their stars. Astronomers must be extremely clever in how they go about their searches for exoplanet Red Edges. That's a challenge they're already working to overcome.

    One early example of of these efforts is a well-regarded paper from 2005 by Sara Seager and collaborators titled Vegetation's Red Edge: A Possible Spectroscopic Biosignature of Extraterrestrial Plants. The team laid out arguments for how the Red Edge might be detected in light from other worlds. They also made the important case that evolution on any planet might lead to some kind of feature like the Red Edge. As they put it, " ... while extraterrestrial 'light-harvesting organisms' have no compelling reason to display the exact same red edge feature as terrestrial vegetation, they might have similar spectroscopic features at different wavelengths than terrestrial vegetation." Thus a Red Edge of some kind, may, perhaps be universal.

    For years now, movies and TV have taught us that the only way to find life in the universe was to directly detect purposeful signals from intelligences on those worlds. With the advent of the exo-planet revolution, a new era has opened. The WTF star raised the issue that we may detect intelligence by the artifacts they leave. Even more important, and more likely, is that we might find evidence of less-evolved forms of life by the imprints they leave on the planet as a whole. The lesson of the Red Edge is that life — even plants — can change planets in ways that might be visible from across the depths of space.

    New Crop Circle May Be Connected to the Cerne Abbas Giant

    A new crop circle which appeared this week in Dorset, England, is unusual not so much for its shape but for its close proximity to the mysterious hill figure known as the Cerne Abbas Giant and the earthworks called the Trendle or Frying Pan. Are these new and old (although that’s a subject of debate) formations related?

    The website Crop Circle Connector provides an excellent drone video and close-up photographs of the crop circle. Both show details of the swirls left when whoever or whatever knocked down the wheat to create the pattern. The pattern itself is pretty simplistic compared to the more complex crop circles that tend to get them all of the attention. The comments section of the website contains an analysis by well-known crop circle expert Dr. Horace Drew, who claims he can decode crop circles, says many of them contain messages from aliens and human time travelers and professes that he can identify man-made (by today’s humans) crop circles.

    Dr. Drew says this one is “paranormally real” (not man-made) and gives comparisons to its shape and various religious symbols. The intersecting circles looks like a Vesica Piscis, a symbol for Christ, and the almond-shaped intersection is a popular framing device for surrounding religious icons in many religions. So in this case, the shape could be a symbol of Christ emitting rays – another popular picture.

    Interpretations of the crop circle provided by Dr. Drew

    However, the religious aspects don’t necessarily fit with the crop circle’s close proximity to the Cerne Abbas Giant – whose looks and history are as controversial as many crop circles. The most well-known features of the crushed chalk outline of a large naked man are his large erection and his large club – that’s not a redundancy. While some have tried to date the figure back to Roman times because of its resemblance to Hercules, it’s not mentioned in historical documents until the late 17th century. An interesting theory is that it may be a satirical drawing of Oliver Cromwell.

    The crop circle (left) and the giant (right) are too close for coincidence

    It the crop circle and the hill figure – particularly the giant’s “lower” club – are related, then the circle takes on the resemblance of a female’s sexual organ. That would make sense if the crop circle was man-made, but Dr. Drew says it’s “paranormally real.”

    What about the Frying Pan? Located above and to the right of the Giant’s head, the trendle (which means ‘hoop’) or frying pan would predate a 17th century Giant. Most experts believe it’s the remnants of a temple and was later used for maypole dancing – a maypole would be erected in its center and childless couples would circle it in a fertility dance.

    The Giant and the Frying Pan

    Erect a pole? Giant erection? Fertility dance? Crop circle in the shape of a female sex organ? Despite Dr. Drew’s comment that “For people who think about “sex” all of the time, this might seem to be a good theory!”, it actually seems like this is the most likely connection … even for people who don’t think about sex all of the time.

    Whatever the case and whatever the cause, this new crop circle provides a great reason to call attention to one of Britain’s unique features – the Cerne Abbas Giant – and to ponder why an alien or time traveler would choose that shape for a nearby crop circle.

    That Marilyn Monroe UFO Document – Again

    I was interested to see Paul Seaburn’s new article, “New Film Suggests Marilyn Monroe Was About To Reveal Aliens.” It’s a saga that dates back to the mid-1990s and which is clearly not going to go away anytime soon, as this latest development shows. The vast majority of the story is reliant on a controversial document of questionable origins and of equally questionable authenticity. Allegedly, it’s a CIA document dated August 3, 1962 and which deals with Marilyn Monroe’s supposed knowledge of Roswell and UFO-themed conspiracies. You can find the document here.

    What particularly interests me about the “Monroe document” is not so much what it says, but what it specifically doesn’t say. Despite what many researchers have said, there is not even a single reference in the document to aliens, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, or UFOs. Not a single one. In fact, the wording could actually push the whole thing down a very different path. I’ll explain what I mean by that. But, first, let’s see how and under what circumstances the controversial one-page document surfaced.

    It all began in 1995, at a Los Angeles-based press conference. It was a press conference held by a man named Milo Speriglio. He was a guy with a deep interest in the circumstances surrounding Marilyn’s death. Speriglio was so interested in her final day that he wrote three books on the issues of her life and still-controversial death. They were Crypt 33The Marilyn Conspiracy, and Marilyn Monroe: Murder Cover-Up. Until 1995, Speriglio had not made any kind of connection between the Hollywood uber-babe and UFOs. So, what was it that prompted Speriglio to head off into new and highly inflammatory territory? It was a revelation from a man named Timothy Cooper.

    Today, many people within Ufology might not recognize that name. But, from the early-to-late 1990s, Cooper – of Big Bear Lake, California – was a well-known figure in Ufology. He was also a controversial figure, too. Most of the controversy stemmed from the fact that Cooper claimed to have received a wealth of old, sensational, leaked documents from retired figures in the intelligence community – almost all of them on crashed UFOs, Roswell, dead aliens, and the notorious Majestic 12 group.

    There’s no doubt that the documents existed (and still exist). You can find PDF versions of most of them at Ryan Wood’s MajesticDocuments.com website. There are literally hundreds of pages. The big question is: are they the real deal? When the papers were made available, there were those researchers who believed that the documents were 100 percent real. Some considered them to be government disinformation. And others were firmly of the opinion that Cooper had created them himself. The controversy raged for a while, but finally imploded upon itself with barely a sigh. The Marilyn document was one of those which Cooper claimed to have received from one of his various sources, or as I call them “ufological Snowdens.”

    I know quite a bit about the Cooper papers (including the Marilyn Monroe document), as the following extract from my new book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy, makes clear (QUOTE): “It’s a little known fact that in late 2001 Tim Cooper sold all of his voluminous UFO files to Dr. Robert M. Wood. Bob is the author of Alien Viruses and the father of Ryan Wood, who has spent years researching alleged crashed UFO incidents – all detailed in his book, Majic Eyes Only. It is even less well-known that in the early days of 2002, Bob hired me to spend a week in an Orange County, California-based motel-room, surrounded by all of the thousands upon thousands of pages of Cooper’s voluminous collection of the cosmic sort. The plan was for me to catalog all of the material, to compile each and every piece of it into chronological order, and to summarize the content of each document, every letter, and every Freedom of Information request that Cooper had submitted to government agencies – which is precisely what I did. It was a week in which I most definitely earned my loot. It was also a week that paralleled the infamous story told by Hunter S. Thompson in his classic gonzo saga, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Whereas Thompson was hunkered down with his whisky, margaritas and shrimp cocktails, for me it was cases of cold beer and club sandwiches” (END OF QUOTE).

    Hunter S. Thompson

    Contained within that huge amount of material at my disposal was the Monroe document – the original one that Cooper is said to have received from one of his sources. There were also a number of FOIA requests from Cooper that he had sent to various military and intelligence agencies, in search of any and all files on Marilyn Monroe. Cooper was clearly seeking out as much as he could find on Marilyn and UFOs – regardless of the actual origin of the document. For around eight weeks, Speriglio did absolutely nothing with the document, aside from sitting on it and pondering on what his next move should be. What Speriglio finally did was to hold that aforementioned press-conference. And that’s how the story began and how the document and its contents spilled over into the UFO research community.

    One of the lesser known aspects of this story is that Speriglio made a very brief comment to the effect that copies of the document were in the hands of what he described as “two federal agencies.” At the press conference, Speriglio flatly refused to reveal the identities of the two agencies. And he refused to reveal the names when questioned later, too. So far, nothing of any substance has ever surfaced in relation to what, exactly, those two agencies may have done with the document. If anything, at all, of course.

    Now, let’s take a look at the contents of the document. Most of those contents are focused on conversations between two people: Dorothy Kilgallen and a friend named Howard Rothberg. The former was a well-known figure in the field of celebrity-journalism in the 1950s and who was deeply interested in the JFK assassination (see this link for more information). As an aside, when the Speriglio-Cooper document surfaced, I fired off FOIA requests to the CIA and FBI and received copies of their files on Kilgallen. The CIA papers were few and brief, to say the least. The FBI, however, mailed me close to 170 pages on Kilgallen, demonstrating that she was someone watched closely by J. Edgar Hoover’s Special-Agents.

    J. Edgar Hoover

    As for what the purported CIA document states, there is this: “Rothberg discussed the apparent comeback of [Marilyn Monroe] with Kilgallen and the break up with the Kennedys. Rothberg told Kilgallen that she was attending Hollywood parties hosted by the ‘inner circle’ among Hollywood’s elite and was becoming the talk of the town again. Rothberg indicated in so many words, that she had secrets to tell, no doubt arising from her trists [sic] with the President and the Attorney General.”

    Now, we get to the crux of the story. The document states: “One such [illegible] mentions the visit by the President at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space. Kilgallen replied that she knew what might be the source of the visit. In the mid-fifties Kilgallen learned of secret effort by US and UK governments to identify the origins of crashed spacecraft and dead bodies, from a British government official. Kilgallen believed the story may have come from the [illegible] in the late forties. Kilgallen said that if the story is true, it could cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put men on the moon.”

    It is true that Dorothy Kilgallen wrote – briefly – about UFOs back in 1955. While vacationing in the U.K. in that year, Kilgallen was on the receiving end of a very odd story, as she noted: “I can report today on a story which is positively spooky, not to mention chilling. British scientists and airmen, after examining the wreckage of one mysterious flying ship, are convinced these strange aerial objects are not optical illusions or Soviet inventions, but are flying saucers which originate on another planet. The source of my information is a British official of cabinet rank who prefers to remain unidentified.”

    Dorothy Kilgallen (left)

    That same “British official of cabinet rank” reportedly advised Kilgallen of the following: “We believe, on the basis of our inquiry thus far, that the saucers were staffed by small men – probably under four feet tall. It’s frightening, but there’s no denying the flying saucers come from another planet.” Kilgallen had more to say: “This official quoted scientists as saying a flying ship of this type could not have possibly been constructed on Earth. The British Government, I learned, is withholding an official report on the ‘flying saucer’ examination at this time, possibly because it does not wish to frighten the public. When my husband and I arrived here from a brief vacation, I had no premonition that I would be catapulting myself into the controversy over whether flying saucers are real or imaginary.”

    The references in the document to Marilyn having “secrets to tell” (secrets supposedly shared with her by JFK and RFK) have led a number of UFO investigators to conclude that Marilyn was killed because of what she knew about Roswell. The alleged CIA document goes on to refer to Monroe’s “diary of secrets,” “what the newspapers would do with such disclosures,” and how she had “threatened to hold a press conference and would tell all.” A countdown to death, all in the name of maintaining UFO secrecy? Well, yes, that’s how it seems. But, in Ufology practically nothing is as it seems.

    It’s important to note that at the top of the document there is a reference to a Project Moon Dust. In a January 2017 article I wrote for Mysterious Universe on Moon Dust I stated: “Over the years, ufologists have given a great deal of attention to a certain U.S. military program called Project Moon Dust (also referred to as Moondust). Its origins date back to the 1950s. The reason why so much attention has been placed upon Project Moon Dust is because of its potential connection to the issue of alleged crashed and recovered UFOs held by elements of the U.S. military – crash-retrievals or C/Rs as they are generally known. But, was Moon Dust really the key operation in secretly locating and recovering crashed ships from faraway worlds?”

    No, it was not. A November 3, 1961 U.S. Air Force document states: ““In addition to their staff duty assignments, intelligence team personnel have peacetime duty functions in support of such Air Force projects as Moondust, Bluefly, and UFO, and other AFCIN directed quick reaction projects which require intelligence team operational capabilities…Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO): Headquarters USAF has established a program for investigation of reliably reported unidentified flying objects within the United States. AFR 200-2 delineates 1127th collection responsibilities…”

    That all sounds very interesting…but…if you take a careful look at all of the Moon Dust documents in the public domain (which I have done), it becomes very clear that when the military was referring to “UFOs” in their files they were not talking about alien spacecraft. Rather, they were referencing probable space debris that originated with the former Soviet Union. Which brings me back to the document that got Milo Speriglio fired up.

    Keep Moon Dust in mind as you read the following. You’ll recall that earlier in this article I stated the following: “Despite what many researchers have said, there is not even a single reference in the document to dead aliens, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, or UFOs. Not a single one.” That’s absolutely true. What it really says is that JFK allegedly traveled to “…a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space.” No references to aliens or to extraterrestrial ships. The document also refers to “crashed spacecraft and dead bodies.” But, again, no specific references to mangled E.T.s or wrecked saucers.

    Now, some might say that references to “dead bodies,” to “things from outer space,” and to “crashed spacecraft” are references to Roswell and deceased aliens. On the other hand, however, the very fact that the document references Project Moon Dust suggests another possibility. Namely, that the subject-matter may have been a failed – and still unknown – early Soviet manned-mission into space. One which predated Yuri Gagarin’s flight into outer space on April 12, 1961. There is another bit of data that supports this scenario. Recall that the document states: “Kilgallen said that if the story is true, it could cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put men on the moon.” For ufologists this is – or should be – a problem.

    Why on Earth would widespread knowledge of the existence of aliens “cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put me on the moon?” The answer is: it wouldn’t. If such information on aliens reached the public it certainly would have caused widespread fear, wonder and amazement among the public – and within government, too. But, specifically provoking embarrassment in relation to plans to put a man on the Moon? That doesn’t make any sense. If, however, those “dead bodies” were Soviet cosmonauts, if the “crashed spacecraft” was a Russian rocket, and if the Soviets did have a number of unsuccessful manned-missions that predated Gagarin – and that such information threatened to surface during the time Kennedy was in office – then yes that would have caused significant embarrassment for the JFK administration – and, possibly, for NASA.

    So, where does all of this leave us? Admittedly, since the Marilyn document first surfaced in 1995, my views and opinions have gone back and forth. I think it’s probably a hoax. Probably. Mainly because it gives Ufology just about all the things it wants and yearns for: the references to “dead bodies” and “crashed spacecraft” inevitably provoke Roswell-like imagery. The mention of a “secret air base” effortlessly points us in the direction of Area 51, thus adding another layer of sensational conspiracy to the story. The JFK-UFO angle reinforces the belief in some quarters that Kennedy was whacked because of what he knew about Roswell. The same with Marilyn, too. It’s The X-Files-meets-Dark Skies-meets-Oliver Stone’s JFK.

    But, I have to admit, I do find it intriguing that whoever really wrote the document, they were extremely vague in terms of what they were talking about. I have seen more than a few questionable UFO documents in my time, and the one thing that nearly all of them share is an explicit, collective reference to ETs, aliens, flying saucers, and extraterrestrial craft. In other words, there is no doubt about the subject-matter: creatures from other worlds.

    For me, though, the Marilyn document remains interesting because of the undeniable haziness of what it says. Or of what it doesn’t say. It doesn’t tell the reader that aliens crashed anywhere – despite the assumptions of Ufology. So, maybe, with that in mind, there is something to the document, after all. That’s not a case of me fence-sitting. As I said, I think it’s a hoax. But, if it is, then a great deal of thought went into it. As did a great deal of restraint – in terms of the unclear subject-matter. Maybe, there’s another answer: that we’re seeing a document crafted by disinformation experts to confuse Ufology, and for reasons presently unknown.

    In light of all the above, it’s not surprising the document is still “alive and kicking,” close to a quarter of a century after it surfaced.

    The Kardashev Scale – Type I, II, III, IV & V Civilization

    We have reached a turning point in society. According to renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, the next 100 years of science will determine whether we perish or thrive. Will we remain a Type 0 civilization, or will we advance and make our way into the stars?

    Experts assert that, as a civilization grows larger and becomes more advanced, its energy demands will increase rapidly due to its population growth and the energy requirements of its various machines. With this in mind, the Kardashev scale was developed as a way of measuring a civilization’s technological advancement based upon how much usable energy it has at its disposal (this was originally just tied to energy available for communications, but has since been expanded).

    The scale was originally designed in 1964 by the Russian astrophysicist  Nikolai Kardashev (who was looking for signs of extraterrestrial life within cosmic signals). It has 3 base classes, each with an energy disposal level: Type I (10¹⁶W), Type II (10²⁶W), and Type III (10³⁶W). Other astronomers have extended the scale to Type IV (10⁴⁶W) and Type V (the energy available to this kind of civilization would equal that of all energy available in not just our universe, but in all universes and in all time-lines). These additions consider both energy access as well as the amount of knowledge the civilizations have access to.

    First, it is important to note that the human race is not even on this scale yet. Since we still sustain our energy needs from dead plants and animals, here on Earth, we are a lowly Type 0 civilization (and we have a LONG way to go before being promoted to a type I civilization). Kaku tends to believe that, all things taken into consideration, we will reach Type I in 100 – 200 years time. But what does each of these categories actually stand for in literal terms?

    Type I designation is a given to species who have been able to harness all the energy that is available from a neighboring star, gathering and storing it to meet the energy demands of a growing population. This means that we would need to boost our current energy production over 100,000 times to reach this status. However, being able to harness all Earth’s energy would also mean that we could have control over all natural forces. Human beings could control volcanoes, the weather, and even earthquakes! (At least, that is the idea.) These kinds of feats are hard to believe, but compared to the advances that may still be to come, these are just basic and primitive levels of control (it’s absolutely nothing compared to the capabilities of societies with higher rankings).

    The next step up – Type II civilization – can harness the power of their entire star (not merely transforming starlight into energy, but controlling the star). Several methods for this have been proposed. The most popular of which is the hypothetical ‘Dyson Sphere.’ This device, if you want to call it that, would encompass every single inch of the star, gathering most (if not all) of its energy output and transferring it to a planet for later use. Alternatively, if fusion power (the mechanism that powers stars) had been mastered by the race, a reactor on a truly immense scale could be used to satisfy their needs. Nearby gas giants can be utilized for their hydrogen, slowly drained of life by an orbiting reactor.

    What would this much energy mean for a species? Well, nothing known to science could wipe out a Type II civilization. Take, for instance, if humans survived long enough to reach this status, and a moon sized object entered our solar system on a collision course with our little blue planet–we’d have the ability to vaporize it out of existence. Or if we had time, we could move our planet out of the way, completely dodging it. But let’s say we didn’t want to move Earth… are there any other options? Well yes, because we’d have the capability to move Jupiter, or another planet of our choice, into the way – pretty cool, right?

    So we’ve gone from having control over a planet, to a star, which has resulted in us harboring enough “disposable” energy to essentially make our civilization immune to extinction. But now, onto Type III, where a species then becomes galactic traversers with knowledge of everything having to do with energy, resulting in them becoming a master race.  In terms of humans, hundreds of thousands of years of evolution – both biological and mechanical – may result in the inhabitants of this type III civilization being incredibly different from the human race as we know it. These may be cyborgs (or cybernetic organism, beings both biological and robotic), with the descendants of regular humans being a sub-species among the now-highly advanced society. These wholly biological humans would likely be seen as being disabled, inferior, or unevolved by their cybernetic counterparts.

    At this stage, we would have developed colonies of robots that are capable of ‘self replication’; their population may increase into the millions as they spread out across the galaxy, colonizing star after star. And these being might build Dyson Spheres to encapsulate each one, creating a huge network that would carry energy back to the home planet. But stretching over the galaxy in such a manner would face several problems; namely, the species would be constrained by the laws of physics. Particularly, light-speed travel. That is, unless they develop a working warp drive, or use that immaculate energy cache to master wormhole teleportation (two things that remain theoretical for the time being), they can only get so far.

    Kardashev believed Type IV civilization was ‘too’ advanced and didn’t go beyond Type III on his scale. He thought that, surely, this would be the extent of any species’ ability. Many think so, but a few believe there is a further level that could be achieved. (I mean, surely there is a limit?) Type IV civilizations would almost be able to harness the energy content of the entire universe and with that, they could traverse the accelerating expansion of space (furthermore, advance races of these species may live inside supermassive black holes). To previous methods of generating energy, these kinds of feats are considered impossible. A Type IV civilization would need to tap into energy sources unknown to us using strange, or currently unknown, laws of physics.

    Type V. Yes, Type V might just be the next possible advancement to such a civilization. Here beings would be like gods, having the knowledge to manipulate the universe as they please. Now, as I said, humans are a very, very long way from ever reaching anything like this. But it’s not to say that it cannot be achieved as long as we take care of Earth and each other. To do so, the first step is to preserve our tiny home, extinguish war, and continue to support scientific advances and discoveries.

    Stunning photos show rare UFO-shaped clouds over Devon 

    by Zoe Stevens

    The mysterious clouds appeared over Sidmouth on Sunday

    These amazing pictures show bizarre flying saucer shaped clouds in the skies over Sidmouth which left residents astonished.

    The mysterious clouds appeared to stack on top of each other, and the glowing phenomenon caught the attention of visitors and residents walking along the promenade on Sunday lunchtime.

    A spokesman from the Met Office has explained that they are, in fact, ethereal clouds.


    The spokesman said: "They are most likely stratocumulus clouds, stratocumulus lenticularis. These are wave clouds, probably generated as the south-easterly wind buffeted over the coastline on Sunday.

    "These would have been quite short lived as drier, clearer air spread from the continent during the afternoon. The ragged bases of the clouds, especially in the second picture hint at some precipitation falling from them, but probably not enough to reach the surface. This is called virga."

    Mainstream Media Covers North Korean UFO Sighting

    To paraphrase Rick Blaine, Humphrey Bogart’s character in the classic, movie Casablanca … of all the UFO sightings in all the towns in all the world, this is the one you cover? Mainstream media outlets – U.S. News & World Report, The Atlantic and others – actually devoted space to a UFO sighting over North Korea which traveled to South Korea. That location should make one suspect that it’s not aliens, but the mainstream knows that linking anything to North Korea these days – even UFOs – is good for business. So, did anyone in the most militarized, scrutinized and monitored area in the world identify the UFO?

    I heard a story once — as a matter of fact, I’ve heard a lot of stories in my time.

    North Korea reportedly fired a mystery unidentified flying object over the Demilitarized Zone on Tuesday. The UFO sighting comes two days after North Korea’s latest missile test … The sighting also comes after the United Nations Security Council lambasted the country for the missile test, on Monday.

    That’s U.S. News & World Report putting the “mystery” UFO sighting at the lead of continuing coverage of the latest North Korean missile test.

    As South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reports, an object was detected at 4 p.m. local time crossing the Military Demarcation Line, a 154-mile armistice line that was established by both countries in 1953 at the end of the Korean War, into South Korean airspace. The South Korean military fired more than 90 K-3 machine gun rounds at the object, which was detected over the country’s northeast Gangwon province, just 45 miles away from Seoul, its capital.

    That’s The Atlanticreporting that the South Korean military response to the UFO was “machine gun rounds,” making it a suspiciously low-flying UFO. Yonhap News Agency is South Korea’s largest news agency and it reports that the UFO was brought down by the machine guns and no less than South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff issued a statement.

    The South’s military is analyzing the object and its route and has beefed up its air defense.

    What kind of extra air defense is needed against UFOs that can be brought down by machine guns? Does it sound like this UFO may be something identifiable? If you have “drone” in the office pool, you lost your bet. CNN revealed the answer:

    Unidentified objects which flew across the border from the North were probably propaganda balloons … [South Korea’s military said] the objects were in the shape of a balloon… (and) flew in the wind’s direction before disappearing. Our military responded in accordance to our military protocol.

    Propaganda balloons carrying leaflets and videos travel in both directions across the DMZ as both countries use them to deliver messages to and from the Internet and cellphone-deprived North. Obviously, this isn’t news.

    What’s news is that the mainstream media chose to cover this incident as a “UFO sighting” as opposed to a military action or a propaganda balloon story. The UFO community struggles to get mainstream reports on other sightings that are much more unidentifiable and in need of explanation, yet propaganda balloons (it’s always balloons with these people) get the attention.

    It’s just like the line from Casablanca’s famous song, “As Time Goes By.”

    It’s still the same old story.
