    The King is Dead, Long Live the Rex

    American scientific Ufology is dead. Its once glorified remains lay decomposing and waiting to be buried in the already littered graveyard of Ufology. Once the king of the Ufological Universe, American Ufology has relegated itself to the realm of charlatans and magicians as well as those who once claimed to be in pursuit of UFO truth but now spend their time resting on their laurels while making the rounds of the UFO speaker’s circuit followed by loyal groupies. XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O />

    These “usuals”  tell the same tired old stories of past research studies, new sensational and unproven claims, and regurgitated UFO trash that can be found anywhere on the Internet. The true scientists, real scientific studies and in depth real investigations are long gone. If you don’t believe me, then search the speaker list of any American UFO conference and you will see the usual characters that hop from event to event like a traveling circus. Examine the content of their presentations and you will be hard pressed to find anything that even comes close to resembling science.

    Alleged science based UFO organizations like MUFON are a shadow of their former selves and even though MUFON boasts of years of continuity, thousands of members and trained field investigators and a cadre of PHD consultants, you will also be hard pressed to find any real science within the organization, its journal or its conferences. After more than 40 years of existence collecting UFO data, MUFON cannot even bring itself to state in unequivocal terms what it has learned from the UFO phenomenon. MUFON fails at science because it refuses to establish standards of evidence, expose blatant frauds and focus more on research rather than just on investigation. “Others talk, we investigate” is the MUFON motto but instead it should be “Others talk, we conduct research” , as accumulating years of UFO data without interpreting the data does as much good as accumulating garbage in a landfill; no one benefits from the collection.

    Taking the place of America in the UFO Research Universe is the Rex, the Latin word for King, as true UFO investigation and research is now taking place south of the US border in experience rich Latin countries like Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. After spending three days in Peruibe, Brazil at the UFO conference sponsored by Revista UFO, the Brazilian UFO magazine led by A.J. Gevaerd, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the presentations as well as the speakers themselves. Here’s a recap of why Latino Ufologists are on the cutting edge of UFO research and investigation.

    Scientific Studies of Abduction Cases in Argentina
    Argentinian Psychologist Gustavo Cia gave an excellent presentation on the Abduction related Project Demeter- Persefone, a joint collaboration between the organizations, Investigacion de Fenomenos Anomalos (Fenomalias) run by Gustavo and the Centro de Estudios UFO (CEUFO) run by Oscar Alfredo Mario. The purpose of the project is to compare physical, neuro-physical and psychological data that has been accumulated in the project’s database and from which hypotheses are being tested by current and future research. Gustavo’s eighty-eight slides of project technical and methodological data and startling conclusions cannot be properly treated in this article, but I am hoping that once translated into English will be available for anyone to download from the Internet.

    Forensic Photo Analysis
    Tony Kurowski, an expert in Forensic evidence and a photo analyst for Revista UFO, gave an outstanding presentation on how witnesses misinterpret UFO photo data, convincingly showing the most common errors of lens flares and focal point distortions that make up most of the “I took the photo and noticed later” cases to how everyday objects can be misinterpreted as UFOs. Tony also delved into the many military platforms both known and covert that can be mistaken as UFOs. When asked how many of all of the thousands of photos he has analyzed were truly unexplainable, Tony remarked that only one out of every thousand made him raise an eyebrow.

    Fresh New Cases and Evidence
    Marco Aurelio Seixas, a Cardiologist from Sao Paulo, Brazil talked about what constitutes scientifically acceptable evidence while other presentations were focused on recent sightings and investigations in different areas of Brazil (the largest country in South America). Retired Peruvian Air Force officer Julio Chamorro spoke about his official UFO investigations on behalf of the Peruvian Government and the many bogus reports filed on the Internet of UFO crashes on Peruvian Soil and retrievals by covert U.S. forces. Chamorro also discussed what he considered true stories like that of a Peruvian fighter jet chasing and shooting at a UFO, witnessed by Chamorro himself and hundreds of other people on the ground as well as a bizarre sighting by former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori.

    With such quantity and quality of data south of the Equator, It is no wonder that Billionaire Robert Bigelow made his round of the South American continent trying to purchase UFO investigations and research from some of the major UFO players in that area. What Bigelow managed to do instead was to spark strong Anti-American sentiment as his cohorts arrogantly tried to negotiate only in Bigelow’s favor, wanting UFO information but not allowing it to be used in return by the local UFO organization. This anti-American sentiment was so strong, I could almost hear the chants of “Yankee, go home” as the crowd was riled up by the very angry presenters. Bigelow’s romp through the South America will be the subject of a future blog article.

    In summary, I found myself drawn to the quality of research, openness, and the camaraderie I observed among the UFO conference attendees and presenters. Here they were no UFO speaker “superstars”, just dedicated UFO researchers with a passion for investigation and research and a desire to share data. Absent also, were the fortune tellers, aura readers and new age cultists that seem to flock to and hawk their wares and services at American UFO conferences.

    And less I forgot to mention, the biggest different between Peruibe and American conferences was that Peuibe had free attendance. The crowd looked to be somewhere between 700 and 1000 people, most of them young or middle aged, a sizeable contingent given that Peruibe is a two hour drive outside of the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo. I am already looking forward to next year’s conference.

    Traveling as I do so much to Brazil, I plan to network as much as possible with the many wonderful South American UFO researchers that I met in Peruibe. I feel fortunate to be a part of this South American community where Scientific Ufology is still alive and well and I predict that it is from these grassroots organizations and researchers that future breakthroughs in UFO research will occur.

    Special Reports

    Air Force's Chief Public Relations Officer Says UFOs are Real

    Colonel William T. Coleman is a retired Air Force bomber pilot, former Public Information Officer for Project Blue Book, and Air Force's Chief Public Relations Officer during the early 1970s. He was also the Producer of a series called "Project UFO" that ran on NBC for two seasons. (1978-79)

    In June of 1978, while promoting his new TV show on the Merv Griffin show, Coleman spoke about a UFO sighting he had experienced while a bomber pilot in the fifties. I spoke several times to Colonel Coleman who knew a great deal about UFOs and had chased one over Georgia.

    Colman states, "We were cruising at 10,000 feet when we spotted a target somewhere around 20,000 to 25,000 feet. It was about seven miles in front of us to our right, and we were overtaking it. It then started descending across our flight path, and I decided to check it out. So I advanced power and began closing a little faster and descending. We kept getting closer and closer and pretty soon we were within a mile of the object, flying over trees at 345 MPH."

    (The plane closed to within an eighth of a mile of the disc-shaped object.) "It was about 60 feet in diameter and 10 or 11 feet thick through the center," he said. "It had what looked like a titanium-type finish (silver gray). I pulled up and made a hard turn that put it out of sight for roughly for four seconds. We whipped back to pull up alongside of it and it wasnt there. I zoomed up to 1500 feet. `There it is!' I said. It was about 2 miles in front of us going across a field leaving a red dusty trail behind it. I guessed its speed at about 170 MPH." After another dive, the crew lost sight of the object. "We never saw it again." http://www.presidentialufo.com/

    Fukushima Nuclear Plant

    I have been contacted by numerous readers and visitors who are very concerned about our environment and especially the radioactive contamination levels from Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear plant. A French watchdog expert warns the radiation will be 'chronic and lasting' for years, a French nuclear said. " Didier Champion, crisis manager at the Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), told reporters a year after the disaster. The initial contamination linked to the accident has greatly has declined." "That doesn't mean that there won't be any more, far from it. Today, and for many years to come, we will have a situation of chronic and lasting contamination of the environment."

    It is essential for Japan to maintain vigilant monitoring of fruit, milk, mushrooms, game and fish, Champion warned , "There are risks of chronic exposure at low dosage, and without care this can build up over time." Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) w orkers warned they're facing a 100-year battle to make fuel rods safe. Fuel Rods need to be kept 15 feet under water to prevent radiation leakage. Evacuation zone refugees won't be able to go home for years, admits Japanese minister.

    The March 11, 2011, catastrophe saw the plant swamped by a quake-generated tsunami that knocked out coolant pumps, triggered hydrogen explosions and caused three of its six reactors to suffer meltdowns of nuclear fuel. Radioactive elements were spewed into the air by the blast and into the sea by cooling water that was pumped into +in a desperate attempt to keep the overheated reactors under control. The IRSN said the main radioactivity leaks occurred between March 12 and 25 in about 15 incidents." It gave a provisional estimate that 408 peta-becquerels, or 408 million billion Becquerels, of radioactive iodine had been emitted into the air. This was 10 times lower than in the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine, the world's worst nuclear accident.

    The iodine releases posed a sharp but temporary hazard as the element quickly decays. A bigger problem, the IRSN said, was Caesium-137, a long-lasting element which takes around 30 years to decay to half its level of radioactivity. Caesium of all kinds released at Fukushima was estimated by the agency at 58 peta-becquerels, or three times less than Chernobyl. Caesium 137 accounted for 21 peta-becquerels.

    Of around 24,000 square kilometers (9,200 square miles) of land contaminated by Caesium 137, only 600 sq. kms (230 sq. miles) breached a safety threshold of 600,000 Becquerels per square meter, the IRSN said.

    So far, no death or cases of sickness have been directly linked to the disaster, IRSN said, stressing however that the impact on the civilian population over the long term, and on emergency workers and plant employees, remained unclear. Many people have taken Potassium iodine to counteracts the buildup of radioactive iodine in the thyroid.

    In comparison two Chernobyl plant workers died on the night of the accident, and a further 28 fireman died within a few weeks as a result of acute radiation poisoning. UNSCEAR says that apart from increased thyroid cancers, "there is no evidence of a major public health impact attributable to radiation exposure 20 years after the accident."

    A probe finds that an inadequate response exacerbated Fukushima crisis. Inadequate response exacerbated Fukushima crisis, probe finds Poor preparation and communication after the disaster struck were among shortcomings that turned a nuclear accident at Japans Fukushima plant into the worst atomic crisis in 25 years, a panel probing the disaster said on Monday.

    In 2008, Tepco simulated a tsunami exceeding 15 meters reaching Daiichi but did not take action, dismissing the likelihood of such a wave, the panel added. The report also noted that Tepco did not have enough expertise on the ground after the disaster struck, saying it made mistakes like misunderstanding the functioning status of the No.1 reactors cooling system and mishandling the No. 3 reactors cooling system. The government said it may take another seven years before the inside of the reactors can be checked due to high levels of radiation and technological constraints. T epco has so far said the tsunami that followed the quake caused most of the damage. Hundreds of minor earthquakes are recorded each month.

    The fuel rods are essential to running an effective plant, but if they are not surrounded by 15 feet of water they spew out radiation that can kill a person in less than a minute. The fuel rods were left uncovered by cooling water long enough to crack and some radioactive material was released into the fuel and a meltdown occurred. Fireman put their lives on the line from radiation to pour water onto the nuclear plant shortly after the Tsunami.

    The 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident involved a partial core meltdown and is ranked as a 5 on the International Nuclear Events Scale, as is the Chalk River, Ontario, incident in 1952 — the worlds first nuclear accident. Additional major earthquakes are predicted for Japan and the US West Coast so there is a good chance for further contamination.

    In a far more serious full meltdown, the cladding covering the fuel rods melts away under temperatures above 1,200 degrees Celsius and releases radioactive isotopes into the atmosphere and circles the world. The reported spike was 313 millirem before dropping back down. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commissions radiation dose limit for the public is 100 millirem per year.

    At Unit 2, the fuel rods were fully exposed at least twice as the levels of sea water being poured into the building dropped. In the first case, Kyodo said, a fire pump used to deliver seawater malfunctioned. The second time, a steam vent of the pressure container of the reactor closed.

    In the first instance, TEPCO said water levels recovered to cover 30 centimeters in the lower parts of the fuel rods, Kyodo reported.

    The Japanese reactors, made by General Electric and built in the 1970s, have thousands of thin, 12-foot-long fuel rods stacked like straws inside a pressure vessel made of steel up to 15 centimeters thick according to the New York Times. The rods actually tubes made of a zirconium alloy contain ceramic pellets of uranium oxide that are about the size of a fingertip. Ordinarily, this fuel core is kept submerged in water that circulates to remove the heat of nuclear fission, making steam that is used to turn turbines to generate electricity.

    Even when the plants are shut down, there is still heat in the reactors. Unless a lot of water is pumped in constantly, the water can boil away and leave the fuel rods exposed. If the rods are completely exposed long enough to allow them to spill thousands of fuel pellets to the bottom of the reactor, the heat becomes intense and the reactor is in full meltdown. The NEI, the policy arm of the U.S. nuclear industry, pointed out that the walls of the containment buildings are steel and concrete 15 to 25 meters thick. The previous explosions in the secondary containment buildings had not damaged the primary containment buildings or the reactor cores at Units 1 and 3, TEPCO said. "Pumping corrosive sea water laced with boric acid into the reactors is a last-ditch measure to keep everything cooled and contained; it is an admission that the reactors have been given up as lost, experts say. Getting them to function normally would require the pumps to be running normally, which requires electricity."

    The Atomic Power Review reports as of April 2012, the seawater purification system, acting on that body of water contained inside the silt fence which surrounds the water inlets of Nos. 1 through 4 nuclear plants, is now in operation. Will Davis writes, "As to the reactor cores, No. 1 through No. 3 plants... Injection rates are down a little, at 4.5 and 4.9 cubic meters per hour for No. 1 and No. 2 respectively while No. 3 remains at 11.2 or so where it's been for days now. All plants are stable in temperature, with No. 3's the highest (feed nozzle 150C and lower head 140C.)"

    TEPCO continues to install support beams, below the spent fuel pool of No. 4 plant to improve the plants ability to withstand further earthquakes. Fresh water and hydrazine corrosion inhibitor continue to be injected to the spent fuel pools as is needed. Banri Kaeda, the Minister of Economy and Industry has requested that the local authorities all around Japan restart the nuclear plants in their jurisdictions, having ensured them that the added inspections and quake / tsunami provisions required by the government have been met. Japan will be seriously short of energy if all of the shut down plants remain shut down.

    People who work in the nuclear industry have warned that governments and companies frequently under report the worst data in attempt to not upset the public. Radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear disaster has been found in tiny sea creatures and ocean water some 186 miles (300 kilometers) off the coast of Japan, revealing the extent of the release and the direction pollutants might take in a future environmental disaster.

    In some places, the researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) discovered cesium radiation hundreds to thousands of times higher than would be expected naturally, with ocean eddies and larger currents both guiding the "radioactive debris" and concentrating it. The debris is floating across the Pacific and some have already reached Alaska.

    Rep. Ed Markey (D MA-7): states, After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the NRC determined that some nuclear security upgrades were required to be implemented for the "adequate protection" of all U.S. nuclear reactors". In other words, the last Congresss move was regulatory kabuki. By failing to use the strictest language for fuel pools, plant operators will be allowed to delay compliance for years, if not completely excuse themselves from it, based on the argument that the safety upgrade is too costly."

    India Fires China Killer Missile

    This seems to be an exclusive club.  Only Russia, the United States, India and China are currently known to possess land-based ICBMs.  What affect does this new capability for India mean? They even named it the "China Killer," which doesn't make China happy but nor would it have if the North Koreans had successfully launched their ICBM and titled it, "US Killer."  There is an arms race going on in this part of the world and who knows where it is leading.  http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/18/11275632-india-test-fires-china-killer-missile-capable-of-reaching-beijing-europe?lite

     
     
     
     
     

    Strange Underwater Pyramid near Japan

    These strange underwater pyramid structures at a depth of two thousand meters were identified with the help of a sonar according to oceanographer Dr. Verlag Meyer. Studies of other structures like Yonaguni in modern day Japan have allowed scientists to determine that the two giant pyramids, apparently made of something like a thick glass, are really impressive each of them is larger than the pyramid of Cheops in Egypt.

    Contactee Claims He Was Flown to Saturn

    Dickson City -- Mark Krawczyk writes, "I wish to report when my uncle was in the Navy and we were visiting him in Norfolk, VA something happened to me in 1964, when I was 7 years old." It might have occurred where we lived in Dickson City, Pa. at the time, and I still live here.

    I remember without any hypnotism the following story things are crystal clear. First, I remember seeing a flying saucer that was in a grove. Then the next thing I remember was a military man saying to me look out the window at Saturn's Rings. The planet was huge; I would say about 18" in diameter looking out the window of the saucer. The saucer looked close to the Lazar saucer, sport model.

     

    But underneath it had primitive type of jet engines all around the bottom to lift it off the ground first until it got into orbit, then it went into some other type of mode that got us to the outer planets in minutes. Then the next thing I remember we were on a moon of Saturn or Jupiter. I remember there was oxygen on it with a lot of rock like structures like in a desert. Then the military man took me to a place where there was a clearing in the stones, and there was something like a turnstile that you would go though in a stadium. Well when we got to that narrow spot in the rocks, there was a being that looked like grasshopper or a praying mantis type being. It didn't speak, but it put into my mind that that I had to go over to a statue that looked like them, and I was to eat what was inside its neck. When I looked at the statue another being lifted off its head to expose the stuff inside its neck, then I looked at the military man and said,

    "Do I have to eat this?" And he said. Yes, so I went over to the statue that looked like them, and I stuck my finger into its neck and tasted it on the tip of my tongue. I remember it tasted like butterscotch pudding." Then after that I was taken to a large base on the Moon. I remember him showing me an ORB that was on a pedestal that was about four times my height. He told me to touch the orb, so I did, and there were creatures in the orb that came to the surface when I touched it. Then I remember two men fighting, and one of them pushed the other and his head went in between a high voltage arcing current between two antenna looking structures and I think he died. Then the Orb somehow let us know it would heal the man. It shot a beam of light at the man and he was healed.

    The next thing I remember was I was walking with the Military man through tubes that connected the buildings, they looked like metal Slinky's that had a clear plastic covering all over them. Then I remember the Military man had some sort of radio on his belt, and someone radioed him and said a Gigantic Orb was destroying their base, and it said they will destroy all the buildings on the moon if they don't turn over the smaller orb. So they asked the Military man what should they do? Then the Military man said to tell the gigantic orb that we will hand over the smaller Orb over to them. It then stopped destroying the base. They put the smaller orb into a valley on the moon, and watched from a TV screen the large orb hovering over the smaller orb, and it shot a beam of light at it and it exploded.

    Then I was flown back home to the grove and watched as the saucer took off with its flames burning my face. Then I remember that same day telling my dad in our Kitchen, "Dad, I think it is so neat that our government has flying saucers" and I'll never forget what he said to me, he said, " Our government doesn't have flying saucers!" And I said, " We don't?"

    Now later in life, I noticed that they have made a show on the Outer Limits, called "Moonstone' which also came out in 1964, and was similar to my memories. Now just a few years back, I looked up who made and wrote the show, "Moonstone' and found out it was a man named, Joseph Stefano.

    Now when I investigated him, he had a friend named, Leslie Clark Stevens Jr. who was an Admiral in the US Navy. And he created the show, "Outer Limits!"  He also gave Stefano the story of what was to become "Moonstone."Now thinking about things, the Navy is in charge of Space travel as if were at sea. And just like in the so called "Alien Interview Smuggled Tapes" It's the Naval Intelligence footage who was in charge of Area 51, and S-4. Like on Star Trek, it seems we have a fleet in space. Well, I had to tell this to someone, whether you believe this or not, it happened to me! Well, if you want to ever contact me, my info is below: Thanks to Mark Krawczyk

    United States Department of Agriculture Allegedly Kills Millions of Birds

    The USDA has been under fire recently for its admitted assault against nature, after multiple investigations have uncovered its deliberate tampering with both plants and animals alike. One such investigation has put an end to the mystery surrounding the death of millions of birds, with USDA documents revealing the organizations role in the massive slaughter. In addition to the mass bird killings, it turns out the USDA was fully aware that a highly-popular herbicide chemical was a known bee-killer, which may have aided the bee decline. The USDA has also threatened the genetic integrity of the nations crops. Information has surfaced regarding the USDAs illegal approval of Monsantos biotech crop, sugar beets. These crimes are simply an excerpt from the long list of USDA crimes that are continually being exposed.

    http://worldtruth.tv/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/mining_claim_bird_deaths.jpgIn December of 2010, mystery struck the world. Reports of mass fish and bird die-offs were coming in from Texas to Sweden. The first occurrence in the series of strange events started in Arkansas, where 3,000 birds fell from the sky. In the following days and weeks, similar incidents were reported with no solid explanation. The reason has now been found, thanks to documents found on the USDAs website. Claiming to be protecting farmers from predators, the birds were victims of a little-known government program. Like millions of other animals since the Bye Bye Blackbird program was created in the 1960′s, the birds were poisoned and killed for being considered a nuisance to farmers. It is important to take note that many of these animals dont pose any immediate threat to farmers.

    In the 1960′s the USDA established a program referred to as the Bye Bye Blackbird program. This program is solely responsible for the mass killings of what could ultimately be millions of birds across the nation. In 2009 alone the USDA poisoned and killed over 4 million birds. The documents state whether or not the deaths were intentional or unintentional on the government website. You can find extremely large numbers, such as 22,276 blackbirds marked as intentionally euthanized. Here is some data from the USDA itself:

    Brown-headed cowbirds: 1,046,109, European Starlings: 1,259,714, Red-winged blackbirds: 965,889, Canadian Geese: 24,519, Pigeons: 96,297, Grackles: 93,210, and Starlings European: 1,259,714

    These numbers are simply from 2009, and let us not forget about all the other years animals have been killed since the 1960′s when the program was first created. http://worldtruth.tv/usda-admits-exterminating-bir.

    In recent years the world honey bee population has plummeted in North America. This is important because bee pollination is crucial for the fertilization of many crops. Recently, a document was leaked revealing that a bee-killing pesticide put in use by the EPA may be to blame. Adding to the controversy, more records have emerged showing that the USDA was fully aware of the pesticides threat to not only bees, but humans. The two-month-old report released by the USDA itself unveiled that the toxic insecticide used on plants are not only a threat to insects central nervous systems, but are also a threat to the internal systems of humans.

    Imidacloprid, one of the neonicotinoid family of pesticides introduced over the past 15 years, is likely to be responsible for Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), the recently observed phenomenon in which bees abandon their hives en masse, according to the study by scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health. The study, to appear in the June issue of The Bulletin of Insectology, provides "convincing evidence" of the link between imidacloprid and CCD, claim the authors, led by Alex Lu, associate professor of environmental exposure biology in the schools Department of Environmental Health. It follows two other widely publicized studies, from Britain and France, published last week in the journal Science, which strongly suggested that neonicotinoids were linked to the declines in bees and other pollinating insects seen in Europe and the US.

    Neonicotinoids, which attack the central nervous system of insects, are considered by some scientists as dangerous to species which are not the compounds principal targets, because they are "systemic" meaning they do not just sit on the surface of a plant but are taken up into every part of it, including the pollen and nectar, where they can be ingested repeatedly by bees and other pollinating insects.

    Sightings in the United States

    Arizona Orbs

    FLAGSTAFF -- As a commercialpilot, I take many photos of interesting and beautiful scenery as my work load/duties permit. I took the attached photo about March 22, 2012, while flying over a portion of the Grand Canyon at approx 39,000 feet. The lights in the upper right of the photo were not noticed until sometime later after I had time to look over all the photos that I had taken during that tour. I do not claim that the lights are UFOs, but I have used my BlackBerry cell phone's camera for years and I know that the lights are not a reflection from within the cockpit.

    Again, I did not even notice them when I took the photo.
    Just thought MUFON might like to have the photo/information. Thanks to MUFON CMS
     
      California Triangle

    JAMUL I have pictures the UFO is in a triangle pattern observed on April 18, 2012. Please blow up the photo.

    Florida Green Light

    Sarasota I am a college student and saw a UFO on April 15, 2012, similar to some of the other ones witnessed in other parts of Florida. It was a maneuvering greenish orb. I am an art student, and I made an animation that closely resembles what I saw. Around 3 AM, Sunday morning, I was driving from school to my apartment on a dark road, when a bright light caught my attention. It was circular and neon green orb-like bright light with a bright white center, but I could see cyan blue towards the bottom right of the light. The orb descended towards the ground in a smooth curved falling path obscured by tall dark trees.

    Note: The witness has presented a good argument that the object is difficult to explain and is unidentified. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Pompano Beach -- Traveling west on Atlantic Boulevard from work to home I observed an airborne object near intersection of Dixie Highway on April 17, 2012, at 10:50 PM. I pulled over as I thought it was an aircraft about to make an emergency landing on roadway and got out of my vehicle to observe. I then saw it was about 20 times larger than an airplane and was shaped like a flat top straw hat and looked to be metallic. It was 50 times the size of a full moon. The upper portion or cabin had windows all around with light on inside which reflected out giving me an excellent view. It was low and slow flying only 300 to 400 feet high. 

    I watched it travel slowly until it went out of sight. I returned to my vehicle and drove a few blocks and saw it flying in the same direction until I lost sight! Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com

    Several discs and cylinder shaped UFO s were reported over the Orlando, Florida area.

    Hawaii Light

    Kihei -- The image appears on the right center of the photo taken on April 15, 2011, we have a few photos showing the object of varying coverage by clouds - no airplanes or helicopters were in the area at time of picture... 

    Please help us identify the object! The moon was not full yesterday as well...

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

     
     

      Massachusetts Photo

    DANVERS -- I watched this thing move from the southwest to where I took the pictures of it, in the western sky on April 13, 2012.

    It was late afternoon, about 6 PM. when I saw it moving. It did not have flashing lights or any smoke trail behind it. Now it is 9:10 PM, and I do not see it in the sky any longer.

    Note: Venus and Jupiter were in the area of the sky photographed by witness. The object in the photo is quite likely Venus. Venus can be visible in the daytime. The apparent movement from the southwest to west is also consistent with the position of a planet as the Earth rotates. Skies were clear at the time of photos. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Nevada Orbs and Bolide

    LAS VEGAS -- I was going to take a photo of the city on April 21, 2012. I got out of my car and it was directly in front of me halfway up Frenchman Mountain. Then a second one appeared and began to do the same- then the first one changed direction and headed south and changed to a solid grey. I scrambled to change the lens on my camera, which took five seconds. When I looked back up- the 1st orb had disappeared. The second one- was still orange and appeared to be following the same path, so I managed to take a single photo of it as it changed to a solid dark grey with a red light orbiting around the lower half. My wife said it was three red lights orbiting around the bottom.  It is exactly as it appears on the camera. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New Jersey Gray Object near Airport

    Newark -- On April 18, 2012, I was driving home from work, on the usual route down the NJ Turnpike pass Newark Airport to Route 78. Each day I drive under scads of planes coming in and out of Newark. I was merging onto Route 78 west and notice a large gray object west of Newark Airport. I quickly realized that this was strange because plane traffic at Newark typically flows north-south. It was about two miles west of the airport. I was talking to a friend on the phone so I looked at my cell phone at 5:32 PM. I noticed it for about two minutes, it really didn't seem to move, and I didn't see any lights. Then my view became blocked by an underpass and then by some trees. When the objects in my view cleared, I no longer saw this object in the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Note: A series of strange objects have been seen in this area through the years and have been picked up on radar.

    New York Cigar

    New York City (Queens; Bayside ) It looked like a lot of light; one of them moved and disappeared. They were too long to look like very close stars. Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com

      Ohio Triangle

    STOW On April 19, 2012, I saw a black triangle shape, with white lights in corners, with red pulsating light in the underside center. It had a humming, low rumble sound. It was first seen higher, under cloud deck flying slowly NE. I saw it again later in evening flying a few hundred feet over the tree tops going very slow slowly spinning counter clockwise.

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Argentina: Vision OVNI Looks into Strange Ground Traces

    Pujato, Santa Fe Province
    -- A cornfield that appeared to display strange marks caused astonishment to many citizens in the town on April 5, 2012. The event prompted a visit from Vision Ovni, the Victoria-based group devoted to the study of UFOs. Cornstalks standing two meters tall were found flattened in the same direction in the middle of a lot. Rubn Marelli, the owner found the markings.

    Visin Ovnis science team studied the phenomenon during a field survey and found a trail measuring 2.10 meters wide and nearly 600 meters long, which presents side trails that, open and mark a sort of figure eight, doubling back on themselves. The ground print begins the moment that the rural gate is traversed, and ends 10 meters from the rural gate on the opposite side of the field.

    "We were able to find strange prints within the field, presenting a sort of "drag-mark" measuring 10 centimeters by 40 long, ending abruptly in a sort of nest made of sticks, with some very interesting perforations on the ground," noted the research team. (Translation (c) 2012, S. Corrales, IHU.

    La Rural --I took photos outside an event on April 7, 2012, and when I downloaded the photos in my computer I noticed a strange object in one of the photos. I did not hear o see anything the day of the event. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     

    Australia Cylinder

    Cranbourne North -- I have seen an orange colored pulsating silent and fast flying object fly through sky at 7.40 PM on April 12, 2012. It was three times bigger than an airplane and around two times faster. I've made pictures with iPhone, and called outside my wife to see. It was amazing and I posted some of the pictures on my Facebook page. Later I saw another one from the same direction flying a little bit higher. I took images with my Nikon SLR. One strange thing has happen. The plane switched off the position lights except the red one. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     

    Canada Disk

    LLOYDMINSTER, SK -- I saw this bright light with a tail in the sky moving south slowly on April 2, 2012, when it was still light outside. I knew it wasn't an airplane because airplanes don't glow during the day. I phoned my mother to tell her to check it out, and my brother and father were all watching this weird object fly around in the sky. It went out of my sight behind the apartment building but they could still see it. They used binoculars to spot the white colored glowing disk. It had a black line through it and dots on it like lights. It was moving all over the sky slowly, for almost four hours until they decided to go to bed.

    It changed a few times, to almost resemble a spider with legs, and then a weird ball of light or an "orb" flew beneath it and past it. It was a foreign object that none of us have ever seen before, and really creeped us out! Thanks to Peter Davenport, Director National UFO Reporting Center http://www.UFOcenter.com

    Elora, Ontario -- I attached for you one UFO picture I took April 6, 2012. I didnt see it until I downloaded the picture. It has an interesting shape as it is, but also if you rotate it.

    Note: Perhaps this object is a bird? It was only noticed by witness after the photo was viewed. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com*

    China Discs Formation

    Urumchi
    On March 29, 2012, I glanced out our 6th floor window into the night sky and noticed several strange, colorful objects in a formation in the eastern sky and informed my girlfriend. We watched for 50 minutes a UFO formation descending near Tianshan. Each of the five individual objects in the formation emitted random red, violet, blue, green and yellow blinking lights. They maintained a staggered, stair-step "staircase-like" an Ariel formation of one object after another. Each object was disc was tilted at a 45 degree angle and equally spaced within the formation. 

    I also noticed a single solid red light above them. These five objects were slowly descending behind a high-rise building or into the mountains in the distance. As the last object descended, out of view the red light moved off into the distance into the Tianshan mountains. We tried several times to take pictures and record the event onto digital devices including a Blackberry, iPhone and an Nikon digital camera, but the objects could not be seen in the view finders. Each object was about of one thumb nail in size. They all eventually descended the distance, 50 minutes later. 

    ((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone (Skype) with this witness, and he sounded to us to be quite sincere and credible. We asked whether he thought that the objects might be so-called "Chinese lanterns," and he unambiguously stated that his impression was that they were not lanterns. PD))

    UK England Silhouettes

    Littleborough Lancashire -- Walking around Hollingworth Lake on April 22, 2012, I heard a loud bang which alerted my attention. I looked across the lake and saw fireworks and to the left were two silhouettes flying in formation. One stopped and the other kept flying and came down in the trees. I looked back and the ground was a red fire. They were both silhouetted with a red light going across in a line then back again. I have never seen anything like this and cannot explain what it was. I felt quite nervous and a little scared. I went home and got my camera and we drove past where it all happened but almost everything had gone. I took this mobile phone picture of the fire object. Two shapes were flying together when an explosion split up and one landed on the lake. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Charles Hickson is the only Abductee that Johnny Carson ever booked on The Tonight Show. Like many people in America, he was shocked by the story of the Pascagoula Alien Abductions and the unbelievable aftermath. Dr J. Allen Hynek and investigated this case which began in 1973 when Charlie Hickson and Calvin Parker were taken aboard a UFO by robotic creatures. After the story was reported to a local law enforcement official, the U.S. Military got involved and their response was as bizarre and troubling as the actual event. Here is your opportunity to view this case through the eyes of those involved as we examine most baffling Alien Abduction ever investigated. This presentation includes an exclusive interview with Charlie Hickson, Charlie's own presentation about the event and interviews with his children, a documentary about the case, an extremely rare interview with Calvin Parker, interviews with Stanton Friedman (UFO Researcher), Leonard Stringfield (UFO Crash Retrieval Researcher), Dr James Harder (Alien Abductions Researcher), Donald Schmitt (Author and CUFOS Spokesperson), Bill Clendenin (U.S. Navy Ship Identification and Classification), Betty Hill (Abductee), Dr Ted Peters (UFOs and Religion Researcher), and much more! 95 minutes of stunning material.

    Klik hier om een link te hebben waarmee u dit artikel later terug kunt lezen.My new article at The UFO Chronicles - ufohastings@aol.com
    All,
     
    My latest article is up at The UFO Chronicles. I consider it to be one of the most important that I have posted there, given that it exposes the interesting but largely-unpublicized connections between the supposedly skeptical organization CSI and the U.S. government. The group, of course, has tirelessly attempted to debunk the reality of UFOs and the official cover-up surrounding them. This article raises valid questions about the organization's motives and the intriguing affiliations of some of its key members.
     
    Not surprisingly, at least to me, there is a nuclear weapons-related twist to the story. Those who have read my book UFOs and Nukes already know the facts, however, most people--whether UFO proponents or skeptics--do not.
     
    In an effort to acquaint as many people as possible with the important revelations by the ex-USAF officers who spoke at my "UFOs and Nukes" press conference, which was streamed live by CNN, I have begun the article with a short discussion of that event. However, the main subject of the piece starts just after the subtitle "Skeptics or Disinformation Agents?"

    To The Black Vault supporters,

    It is with great pleasure I send you the below press release. I hope everyone can help me share the word, by posting this on your Facebook page, Twitter feeds, mailing lists, etc.

    The direct link to an online version is at:

    http://www.theblackvault.com/m/news/view/The-Reality-Checked-Memorial-Weekend-Nation-Wide-Sky-Watch

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    The “Reality, Checked” Memorial Weekend Nation-Wide Sky Watch

    This 2012 Memorial Day Weekend, join the hosts of The Black Vault Radio Network’s, Reality, Checked, in a weekend nation-wide UFO sky watch.  If there is something meant for us to see – let’s find it!

    NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA. (BlackVault) – April 25th, 2012 – For centuries, the human race has asked itself the greatest question, “Are we alone?”  As theoreticians, prophets, researchers, investigators, and curious minds offer up thought-provoking answers to that question – there is only one way to find out.  We need to look for ourselves!

    Join TheBlackVault.com’s John Greenewald, Jr., and Trevor Lowder, hosts of “Reality, Checked,” as they launch a 72-hour, nation-wide, project to get everyone to simply… look up. Nearly everyone walking on this planet is armed with videos phones and cameras, so the hosts propose that as most of us likely will have an outside BBQ with our families honoring our nation’s heroes that weekend, that we should also take a moment to peer up into the sky – looking to find evidence that may prove we are not alone.

    With a nation-wide alliance of curious sky watchers, armed with an army of cameras, certainly someone, somewhere, could find something.  All too often we look forward or down; but never up where the answers may lie. They propose we change that.

    And if you do happen to catch a shred of evidence, TheBlackVault.com offers an amazing new way to catalogue the event, and share it with the world.

    Located in The Black Vault’s Case File Database (http://www.theblackvault.com/m/events/home/), users have the opportunity to share their sighting (from any time and date) and upload videos, photos, word documents, sketches, and whatever else they want to share.  It will then be tagged on a global map, and be preserved for others to view and investigate for years to come. 

    To date, it is arguably the most powerful tool to catalogue your sighting, and it isn’t limited to this year’s Memorial Weekend UFO sky watch. You can catalogue, from any date, UFO sightings, ghost encounters, abduction experiences, military exercises, and anything else of interest.

    Help pass the word, and join in the fun as we all take part in this sky watch and the weekend of May 26th, 2012 – May 28th, 2012 (Memorial Day) as we all take a couple minutes out of our lives – and simply look up to find an answer. 

    (Note: Not in the U.S. but want to take part? You can!  Not only do we invite the globe to take part, The Black Vault Case File Database welcomes cases from around the world – so make sure you join us in America for this historic event!)

    Science and UFOs: Part 3—Deep Denial Disguised as Rational Skepticism



    By Robert Hastings
    www.ufohastings.com
    4-18-12
         As noted in Part 1, the late Dr. James E. McDonald—who held the title “Senior Physicist, Institute of Atmospheric Physics” at the University of Arizona—also holds the distinction of being one of the very few scientists to actually study the UFO phenomenon. In a prepared statement before the U.S. Congress’ House Committee on Science and Astronautics, delivered on July 29, 1968, McDonald said this:
    “From time to time in the history of science, situations have arisen in which a problem of ultimately enormous importance went begging for adequate attention simply because that problem appeared to involve phenomena so far outside the current bounds of scientific knowledge that it was not even regarded as a legitimate subject of serious scientific concern. That is precisely the situation in which the UFO problem now lies. One of the principal results of my own recent intensive study of the UFO enigma is this: I have become convinced that the scientific community, not only in this country but throughout the world, has been casually ignoring as nonsense a matter of extraordinary scientific importance.”1
    Scientists universally profess allegiance to the lofty principles comprising the Scientific Method, both in the pursuit of their own research, as well as when reviewing the work of their peers. Therefore, one might predict that they will indignantly dismiss the suggestion that, on occasion, they have temporarily abandoned those cherished principles. Nevertheless, as regards the subject of UFOs, very few scientists actually practice what they preach.

    In essence, to engage in science is to search for knowledge. This exploration is conducted through the systematic collection and objective analysis of facts. If one aspires to understand the nature of an unexplained phenomenon, one must first assemble and evaluate data—or, at least, impartially examine the data gathered by others—before drawing conclusions.

    Unfortunately, most scientists reject outright the validity of UFO research, refuse to engage in it, and deliberately ignore the intriguing data compiled by a handful of their more inquisitive, less-biased peers. If this were not enough, despite their profound unfamiliarity with the subject, many of these same intransigent individuals pontificate about UFOs in the most shameless and presumptuous manner. If they were to apply this same “methodology” to their own research, their colleagues might justifiably consider their conduct incompetent, if not fraudulent. Nevertheless, it is rare to hear a scientist speak knowledgeably about the UFO phenomenon and rarer still to find one who has actually studied it.

    Accuse a scientist of being closed-minded about UFOs and he or she will recoil: “I’m not closed-minded, but I am skeptical!” Because the former term implies inflexible prejudice and the latter one prudent caution, it is understandable that these UFO “skeptics” would prefer to view themselves in a more flattering light.

    One scientist who has advocated a comprehensive, unbiased investigation the UFO phenomenon, astronomer Dr. Bernard Haisch, defines a Skeptic as, “One who practices the method of suspended judgment, engages in rational and dispassionate reasoning as exemplified by the scientific method, shows willingness to consider alternative explanations without prejudice based on prior beliefs, and who seeks out evidence and carefully scrutinizes its validity.”2

    By Haisch’s definition, very few scientists are true skeptics on the subject of UFOs. On the contrary, over the years, most have behaved as self-appointed experts, having all the answers, without first investigating any of the facts. Although scientists profess a deep curiosity about little understood or unknown phenomena, when it comes to UFOs, this assertion rings hollow. At the moment, the UFO phenomenon is a blind spot in most scientists’ field of vision. There is definitely something there to be seen, but they can not, or will not, bring themselves to take a look.

    As noted earlier, the late Dr. James McDonald—one of the few scientists to have actually studied the UFO phenomenon before holding forth on the subject—once pointedly criticized the thoroughly unprofessional posture toward UFOs he observed among his colleagues and the scientific community at large.

    Sad to say, some 40 years after Dr. McDonald’s lament, the same smug, dismissive attitude toward the phenomenon remains firmly entrenched in scientific circles, resulting in a pervasive, self-imposed ignorance about UFOs among those who supposedly seek the truth. At the beginning of the 21st century, it remains true that the overwhelming majority of scientists, if they consider UFOs at all, consider them to be beneath their dignity, and worthy of outright derision. With this self-righteous stance, they have effectively abdicated their collective professional responsibility in the most unscientific manner. This is not so much an accusation as it is an objective statement of fact.

    Fortunately, despite the collective disinterest in UFOs exhibited by the scientific community as a whole, there have been a few brave pioneers. In the mid-1960s, Jim McDonald was well ahead of the curve, with his repeated, plaintive calls for a legitimate investigation of the UFO phenomenon. Seeking to review the available data for himself, he persistently demanded access to the Air Force’s UFO files—at least those held by Project Blue Book—and was ultimately granted repeated access to the ones that were not classified.

    Following those reviews McDonald had written, “…There are hundreds of good cases in the Air Force files that should have led to top-level scientific scrutiny of [UFOs] years ago, yet these cases have been swept under the rug in a most disturbing way by Project Blue Book investigators and their consultants.”3

    Despite, or perhaps because of, the Air Force’s ongoing attempts to suppress the frequently high-quality data on UFOs it collected, McDonald began to investigate the phenomenon on his own time and at his own expense, while ignoring the very real risk to his scientific reputation. This diligence paid off and, by 1968, McDonald was widely regarded—although not among his still-dubious peers—as one of the world’s leading scientific experts on UFOs. Consequently, he was invited to address the United States Congress on the subject, during hearings held that year. McDonald’s full statement before the House Committee on Science and Astronautics, presented on July 29th, may be found in the U.S. Congressional Record, as well as on the Internet.

    While acknowledging that the overwhelming majority of UFO sightings undoubtedly had prosaic explanations, and that a great many questions about the phenomenon remained unanswered, McDonald succinctly summarized his conclusions regarding the most credible of the unexplained cases: “My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed ‘surveillance.’”4

    Although this was merely an opinion, it was after all an informed opinion on UFOs, something very few other scientists could offer, then or now. Many of McDonald’s published papers, private research notes, and personal letters relating to his investigations of the UFO phenomenon are now accessible online, providing insight into the cautious, rational reasoning underlying his dramatic conclusions.

    There is an old joke about the intellectual who sniffs, “Well, it may work in fact, but it will never work in theory.” While most UFO skeptics are quick to dismiss as impossible the idea that UFOs are alien spacecraft, very few of them will ever make the effort to learn whether any evidence exists to suggest otherwise. Instead, they merely continue to assert that, as an idea, it simply does not work. However, as the joke implies, the real question to be asked is whether it works in fact. That is, is there evidence in the real world which lends credence to the validity of the ET hypothesis of UFOs?

    Granted, the proposal that UFOs are alien spaceships is decidedly counter-intuitive. For most scientific professionals, the notion just doesn’t make sense and almost certainly has no basis in reality. However, as is often the case in science, many ideas which initially seem impossible, or at least highly unlikely, eventually turn out to be true. As a noted cosmologist once observed, “The greatest obstacle to the advancement of science is the illusion of knowledge—the notion that one already knows the answers.”

    Precisely. At the end of the day, practicing science still involves asking questions and seeking answers, whatever those answers turn out to be. However, a scientist must actually adhere to, not just reflexively espouse, these fundamental principles. Pontificating about UFOs from the comfort of the armchair contributes nothing to the solution to the problem. To honestly attempt an understanding of UFOs, one must actually investigate the UFO phenomenon, however pointless or distasteful this proposal might seem to some.

    A thousand-mile journey begins with a single step. To those curious but still-uninformed scientists who wish to learn the facts, I respectfully recommend reading Dr. McDonald’s Prepared Statement to Congress as that first step.

    Video: Travis Walton and witnesses to his alien abduction speak about the event

    | Apr 13, 2012

    Travis Walton (Credit: Open Minds/Peter Beste)

    For more than 36 years, the Travis Walton abduction story has been told countless times through film, print and presentations. His story has captivated an entire community of researchers and UFO enthusiasts. Now two eyewitnesses who were present the night of the abduction, are stepping forward to tell their side of the story.

    For the first time since the incident, more than 36 years ago, Travis Walton, John Goulette, and Steve Pierce were reunited at the 2012 International UFO Congress. Producer Lori Wagner of Digital Films in San Diego and Regression Therapist Yvonne Smith sat down and interviewed all three. They have shared their interviews with Open Minds, and during the conference, in these interviews Goulette and Pierce reveal much of what they personally went through directly after that night, and what their lives have entailed since. That night, they observed the blinding light, sensed the beating pulse, and felt the fear that comes from seeing your friend and co-worker disappear before your eyes. What followed was a stream of disbelief and accusations from law enforcement and the local community. Even after passing lie detector tests, these men’s lives have continually been harassed. John Goulette eventually moved out of town, put the memory aside, and went on with his life. Steve Pierce was pressured repeatedly by UFO skeptic Phil Klass to take a bribe and say the whole incident was a hoax. After showing the film made about the event to his daughter, she encouraged him to come forward with his story.

    The Travis Walton story has stayed consistent and exact for more than 36 years. Now, with additional eyewitness testimony to back up his claim, his amazing ordeal will hopefully be seen with less skepticism, and his journey for the truth appreciated.

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

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

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

    Coanda Effect Flying Saucer


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

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

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

    A new view of Stephenville

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    “Heaven Is for Real”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

    Mars Viking Mission Found Microbial Life 30 Years Ago.


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

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

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

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

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

     

    Earthquake Danger on U.S. West Coast

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

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

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

    Sightings of UFOs in the United States

    Arizona Radiating Light

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

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

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

    California Object

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

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

    Connecticut Green, Glowing Whale Hits Lake

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

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

    Florida Keys UFOs at Sea

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

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

    Hawaii Object

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

    I take many pictures! Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Indiana Flying Object

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

    Montana Triangle

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

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

    New Jersey Disc

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

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

    New York Aliens of Light

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

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

    Ohio Rectangle

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

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

    Tennessee Lights

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

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

    Texas Lights

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

    Washington Strange Light

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

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

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Australia Strange Lights

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

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

    Canada Light Speed

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

    Ecuador Flying Object

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

    India Orb

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

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

    Luxembourg Triangle

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

    UFO claims surround military jet mystery on the Costa del Sol

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

    EXCLUSIVE by James Bryce and Jon Clarke

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    UK/England Photo

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Menzel and UFOs

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

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

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

    Majic Men Movie to Cover the Majestic 12 Mystery



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

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

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

    Hi all:

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

    Kind regards.

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

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

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

    What's the Big Idea?

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

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

    What's the Significance?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    1) insufficient flight persistence or “hang time”

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

    3) inadequate communications bandwidth and reach.

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

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

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

    What Does the Future Hold?

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

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

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

    Watch the video of their demonstration here:


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

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

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

    Special Reports

    Exempt from Disclosure

    The Black World of UFOs, 3rd edition

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    This is a very factual exceptional book well worth reading.

    The Significance of the Bosnian Pyramid Discoveries

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    India Cambay Underwater City

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

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

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

    The World Will Not End!

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

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

    Iran Signals Compromise on Uranium Enrichment

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

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

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

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

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

    Sightings in the United States

    Alabama Disc

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

    Alaska Colored Lights

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

     California Underwater Lights (ie. USOs)


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

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

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

     Florida Light Triangle


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

    Illinois Triangle

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

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

    Kansas Object

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

    Nevada Object near the Moon


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

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

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

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

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

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

    North Carolina Light

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

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

    Texas UFOs Filmed from Plane

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

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

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

    Australia Moving Light

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

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

    UK/ England Bright Object

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

    Q&A: The Anthropology of Searching for Aliens

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Dyatlov Pass incident

     

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

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

    [edit] Background

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

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

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

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

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

    [edit] The search

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

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

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

    [edit] Investigation

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

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

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

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

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

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

    [edit] Controversy surrounding investigation

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

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

    [edit] Aftermath

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Exploring the mystery of the Majestic 12

    | Mar 21, 2012

    MAJIC men teaser (credit: Bryce Zabel)

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

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

    This documentary came out in 1979 and features Dr. Jacques Vallee and is presented by Rod Sterling. Written by Robert Emenegger.Yes, its the same person who was pretty close to uncovering the reality behind the alleged reports about the landing of a UFO at Holloman AFB. He also appears shortly in the one about the Presidential knowledge about UFO's, part of the History Channel's UFO Files Series! It's a pretty good video, and should definitely go into the video library of anyone interested in the scientific study of UFOs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    THE WITNESS WHO WAS NOT: CHARLES DAHL'S DENIAL

    mauryisland.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    chard.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

    FRED CRISMAN: WALTER MITTY PROVIDES THE ANSWER TO MAURY ISLAND

    crisman.jpg

    FRED CRISMAN

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

    mitty.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    deros.jpg

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

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

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

    CRISMAN'S PLAN UNVEILS: CREATING THE MAURY ISLAND HOAX

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

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

    shaver-palmer.jpg

    CON MEN RICHARD SHAVER AND RAY PALMER: RUNNING A CIRCUS

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

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

    STEALING STORIES FROM ARNOLD AND ROSWELL

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

    NOT SINISTER, BUT STUPID

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

    donuts.jpg

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

    President Harry Truman Realized That UFO'S Were Real.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Man claimes stairstepped into the cloud

     

     

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

    Sincerly,

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

    Intelligent Design?

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

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

    Hellyer Former Canadian Minister of Defense Blasts UFO Cover-Up 

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

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

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

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

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


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

    Held at the Cloak and Dragon bookstore, 12 E Main Street, Bloomsburg, PA; 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. admission, $14, presented by "Flying Saucer Fantasia." Only 50 seats available!

    Featuring retired Air Force intelligence officer and flyer George Filer, MUFON Eastern Regional and New Jersey director: author of "Filers Files".

    Dr. Konstantine Zelator, math professor, UFO researcher and founder, Flying Saucer Fantasia; Topic: "A Survey of Key UFO Phenomena";

    Elizabeth Richie, author of As Sacred As 1,2,3, chairman of the Arizona UFO Sightings 2011 Kingman Conference. Topic: "ET, Phone Me!...Integrating Science and Spirit in the Era of Disclosure.

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

     

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


    Support Earth Changing Research

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

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

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

    Stephen Bassett’s UFOs and Nukes Press Release: Journalists Beware!



    By Robert Hastings
    www.ufohastings.com
    3-30-12
         Exopolitics guru Stephen Bassett has just issued a press release trumpeting a petition he recently created in which he urges the Obama administration to investigate and make public information about UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites, as revealed by seven U.S. Air Force veterans at my September 27, 2010 press conference in Washington D.C. which CNN streamed live:


    Over the past four decades, I have interviewed more than 130 ex-U.S. military personnel who have reported ongoing UFO activity at ICBM sites, nuclear weapons depots, and nuclear detonation test ranges. The seven individuals who participated in the press conference—co-sponsored by former USAF Captain Robert Salas—have provided affidavits relating to their still-classified experiences. Those, as well as several declassified documents reporting UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites since the late 1940s, may be read here:


    In his March 28, 2012 press release, Bassett provides his contact information for journalists who might wish to interview him about the petition. Unfortunately, Bassett simply is not a reliable source of information on the nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. Indeed, many researchers question his basic credibility as a spokesman on the topic of UFOs in general. I am among that group, however, I will confine my remarks here to addressing the factual errors and imprecise language found in the release.


    SB: Washington, DC -- A petition calling attention to extraordinary testimony from former ranking members of the United States Air Force has been posted on the White House website.

    RH comments: “Ranking members, Mr. Bassett? This inaccurate statement demonstrates your reportorial incompetence and/or your tendency to hype the facts. While the USAF officers to whom you refer include a retired colonel and lieutenant colonel, as well as former captains and a former enlisted man, none of these individuals can accurately be called a “ranking member” of the U.S. Air Force.

    These persons’ testimony is of course tremendously important but to misrepresent, intentionally or not, their previous standing in the U.S. Air Force hierarchy only complicates the issue by providing ammunition to UFO debunkers who will seize any and every opportunity to discredit their statements based only on secondary, inaccurate commentary about them by persons such as yourself. (At least you didn’t call them all “generals” as one incompetent reporter did.)

    SB: “The petition reads as follows: WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO ask Defense Secretary Panetta to respond to mounting evidence for nuclear weapons tampering by extraterrestrial craft.”

    RH comments: Okay, Mr. Bassett, that’s my own opinion as well, although I would have said, “…tampering by those presumably aboard extraterrestrial craft.” As I write in my 2008 book UFOs and Nukes:
    “After researching the UFO ‘phenomenon’ for 39 years, I must conclude that the technology involved is so advanced that a human origin for it can be automatically ruled out in almost every bona fide sighting case. The radar data alone substantiate the presence of unknown craft in our atmosphere whose capabilities are vastly beyond our own aircraft and which defy known aerodynamic principles.

    Therefore, the available facts suggest to me that extraterrestrial visitation, by one or more races of beings, is occurring. I further contend that such visitation accounts for all of the nuclear weapons-related incidents presented in this book, as well as the secrecy surrounding those events. In my view, the essential message being conveyed by our visitors is this: As long as nuclear weapons exist, they remain a potential threat to the future of humankind and to the planet itself. Get rid of them!”
    However, Mr. Bassett, I am careful to say in my book, “While overwhelming empirical evidence is not yet available, at least in the public domain, to confirm an extraterrestrial origin for UFOs, it can at least be said that some as-yet unexplained mystery has been thrown in the faces of those who planned, and still plan, to use these terrifying weapons.”

    I understand that my nuanced summation of the available evidence will go over the heads of those who view the UFO phenomenon in black-and-white terms but given that I am, as you say, the principle researcher on the UFO-Nukes Connection, my criticism of your imprecise commentary on my findings is valid and noteworthy.

    SB: Since 1992 government witnesses of high rank have been coming forward with evidence regarding incidents in which extraordinary craft of unknown origin have tampered with nuclear weapons facilities around the world.

    RH comments: 1992? Oh really, Mr. Bassett? Actually, my first ex-USAF sources—including a couple of retired colonels—agreed to be interviewed in the early 1970s. In 1981, when I first embarked on the college lecture circuit, those persons’ testimony became a matter of public record.

    SB: …One of the incidents addressed took place at a Malmstrom Air Force Base nuclear missile launch complex in March of 1967. Former ICBM launch officer Salas testified to missiles being shut down in silo after a craft of unknown origin hovered directly over the complex. Other testimony dealt with the 1986 RAF Bentwaters base incident in the United Kingdom.

    RH comments: Actually, the events at RAF Bentwaters occurred in December 1980, not in 1986. But considering the other inaccuracies found in your press release, I suppose I am belaboring the point.

    Robert Salas’ Input


    My co-sponsor at the UFOs and Nukes press conference, former USAF Captain Bob Salas, has written an article about Bassett’s dubious contributions to the UFO debate titled “The Idiocy of the Disclosure Movement” in which he said:
    “Stephen Bassett’s (or Steven Greer’s depending on which one is talking) Disclosure Project has been ineffectually trying to penetrate [the] door of secrecy since 2001. They have presumably tried to achieve disclosure by enticing speakers (myself among them) to tell as many stories, theories, philosophies, reports, and conjectures as possible during these conferences. I say presumably because these pointless exercises have been so ineffective in gaining serious public attention that one might conclude they were intentionally designed to keep disclosure from happening.

    They seem to have achieved one probable objective of those who would maintain the secrecy, i.e., ‘to keep the public confused and unsure about the subject.’ The hallmark of these Exopolitics Conferences is generally unsupported statements and conjecture—lots of conjecture.

    The mainstream media has not gotten on the bandwagon because there is little substance to talk about...The Exopolitics groupies are simply hurling whatever they can get their hands on in every direction.”
    Salas has many other relevant comments and his brief, well-argued article should not be passed-by, at least by anyone seriously interested in the important issues involved with the inevitable announcement of the UFO reality by world governments.

    (I will note here that another incompetent commentator on the UFO-Nukes Connection, Expolitics big-wig Dr. Michael Salla, has already muddied the waters by endorsing a hoax perpetrated by notorious con-artist Bill Knell, relating to veteran newsman Walter Cronkite’s supposed witnessing of a nukes-related UFO incident. After I publicly took him to task, Salla eventually recanted his endorsement of the hoax but then wrote a scathing article saying that I and other longtime ufologists were unfairly criticizing the Exopolitics movement—I guess because, unlike the Exos, we require credible, vetted sources and, as often as possible—given the high-level classification assigned to national security-related UFO events—verifiable documentation that supports our sources’ statements, before we publish our findings.)

    In any case, Mr. Bassett, I agree in principle that ongoing efforts should be made by U.S. citizens to push for our government’s disclosure of the UFO reality and, in particular, the incidents involving nuclear weapons. As I say in my book:
    For me, one of the most important UFO-related issues has always been political and philosophical in nature. Our country’s government has been proclaimed to be ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ If this is indeed the case—and democratic principles do in fact guide our national policies—then a relative handful of people at the Pentagon, CIA, NSA, and the other intelligence agencies, must not be permitted to retain full and unchallenged discretionary power in a matter so momentous as the reality of UFOs. While the official disclosure about our visitors’ existence and presence here must be handled with great care and consideration, it is nevertheless advisable and ultimately unavoidable. The basic question is whether a secret as important as alien visitation should continue to be hidden from the American people, and the rest of humanity, decade after decade.

    As I see it, the ongoing UFO intervention in U.S. strategic affairs is now a tale that needs to be told, in unflinching terms, to our legislative assemblies, if possible, but from the rooftops if necessary. All bold endeavors bear both planned-for and unintended consequences. The inevitable admission by U.S. government officials that our nuclear weapons have long been monitored, and at times compromised, by those of unknown origin and objectives, is not without its perils. But the facts will—and should—become known, sooner or later, by one means or another, in a society such as ours. And that’s a good thing. After all, isn’t that how a democracy is supposed to operate?”
    Of course, implicit in my position is the fundamental premise that those who are publicly petitioning our government representatives and/or shouting from the rooftops, so to speak, by posting information about the cover-up on the Internet, be competent, informed spokespersons for the Disclosure cause.

    Linking well-documented UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites with the nonsense routinely offered up the Exopolitics crowd—such as the supposedly-verified knowledge of who our Visitors are, what their game plan is, how they would interact with humans if only their reality were to be acknowledged by the government, etc.—only serves to degrade the integrity of the important nukes-related evidence found in declassified documents and ex-military witness testimony. This is the key reason I am writing such a highly-critical article, to warn people, especially journalists, to steer clear of Stephen Bassett when it comes to the topic of the UFO-Nukes Connection.

    When I telephoned Bob Salas earlier today, prior to writing this, he told me that he was concerned that Bassett was trying to make himself the “point of contact” for any journalists who wished to learn more about the revelations divulged at our press conference or in our two books, UFOs and Nukes and Faded Giant. We both agreed that this would be a very worrisome development, given Bassett’s non-involvement with the research, his apparent inability to accurately report the facts we have gathered, and the great likelihood that he would try to entwine our well-documented material with his mostly-bogus Exopolitical notions and claims.

    Of course, no matter what I or anyone else says, there will always be some number of people who will gobble up the Exopolitics party-line without a giving a second thought to whether the occasionally valid but mostly unfounded “facts” offered by the group really have merit or actually provide any genuine insights into the coming paradigm-shift that will ensue once Disclosure occurs.

    Regardless, Mr. Bassett, if any members of the media actually contact you in response to your latest press release, please remember to tell them 1) you had nothing to do with UFOs and Nukes press conference, 2) your release’s summation of the event and the research underlying it is factually-flawed, 3) your attempts to ingratiate yourself with me prior to the event were quickly rebuffed and 4) I think your approach to promoting UFO Disclosure is lacking in credibility and, therefore, counterproductive. As I once told you in an email, I consider you to be part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    UFO Encounter Revealed After Almost 40 Years By Ex-Military Pilot: Exclusive

    On the night of Feb. 6, 1975, Marine Reserve Squadron Capt. Larry Jividen was piloting a T-39D Sabreliner (see image above) combat trainer and utility aircraft with five Naval officer pilots on board for a special training flight. He didn't know the evening would evolve into a game of "tag" with an unidentified flying object.

    Jividen hasn't spoken about that experience from nearly 40 years ago -- until now.

    The nine-year Marine Corps officer -- and later commercial airline pilot -- had taken off at twilight for a two-hour roundtrip that began and ended at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla.

    "At about 9 o'clock, we were descending from a high altitude -- around 33,000 feet -- and I looked off to the right side of the airplane where I saw a solid red light at our 1:00 o'clock position and altitude," Jividen told The Huffington Post.

    "It was not flashing like normal anti-collision lights flash on airplanes. I thought it might be some other traffic, but I wasn't sure, so I called Pensacola Approach Control and said, 'Understand we're cleared for the approach, but we have traffic off to our right, and who's first for the approach?"

    The traffic that Jividen and the other five crew members saw was mutually described as "a solid, circular object about the relative size of a kid's marble held at arm's length," Jividen recalled.

    When they were informed that ground control had no other traffic in their vicinity, Jividen became concerned that the mysterious object hadn't shown up on radar. So he asked for clearance to deviate from their approach and turn directly toward the bright red UFO "just to see what it does."

    As he turned toward the object, Jividen says it turned toward his plane.

    "It suddenly flew from right to left, across the nose [of our plane], and just stopped at our 11:00 o'clock position. At that point, I started to speed up to see if I could close on the object, and as I [did that], it was pacing me in front. In other words, as I'd speed up, he'd speed up.

    "So, I decided to descend to place the object against a star field to make sure that it was actually solid, and then I climbed so that I could silhouette the object against the Gulf of Mexico."

    Jividen says the five-minute encounter came to an end when the reddish UFO flew away at a very high rate and disappeared over the horizon in the direction of New Orleans.

    After the crew returned to Pensacola, Jividen filled out an incident form and that was the last he heard of the episode.

    And nobody else heard about it for more than three decades.

    Jividen's story is now being told in a new edition of "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities," written by retired Army Col. John Alexander.

    "I did some background checks on [Jividen] and one of the first things that came back was his distinguished flying crosses for doing really heroic things. He is who he says he is and very straightforward," Alexander told HuffPost.

    "I don't think there's any doubt that it was something. I take him as a highly credible witness, much more so than many other ones."

    Alexander's unique top-secret clearance granted him by the U.S. government gave him access in the 1980s to a variety of official documents and first-person UFO accounts. He also created a special group of top-level government officials and scientists who studied the UFO phenomenon.

    In the end, Alexander determined that the U.S., indeed, had evidence pointing to UFO reality, but he couldn't find any signs that the government deliberately kept this information from the public, or that contact had been made with alien life.

    "One of the things we are seeing are physical characteristics that we don't understand, capabilities that are beyond our technological options at this time, i.e. extremely fast acceleration and high-G turns that living organisms, as we know it, would not survive," he explained.

    Watch these amazing pilot close encounters with UFOs:

     

    A larger issue going on with regard to UFOs seen by military, commercial and private pilots may turn out to be potential safety hazards, says at least one respected scientist.

    "My friends who are scientists say, 'Well, there's nothing to UFOs. If there were, we would have the data and we'd look at it.' That's partly a valid statement, and it's pilots who are unwittingly preventing us from getting the data to analyze scientifically," said Richard Haines, a former research scientist from NASA's Ames Research Center.

    Haines -- who prefers to use the term unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, to UFO -- is a former UFO skeptic who now heads the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, or NARCAP.

    "Our objectives are to make flying safer for the flying public, specifically in regard to UAP, and we're convinced there's a potential threat posed by nearby UAP to commercial and private airplanes," Haines told HuffPost.

    Working with a staff of nearly 40 people, including international affiliates, Haines is NARCAP's chief scientist. He addresses the issue of pilots who have a fear reporting UFOs or UAPs while they're still actively flying.

    "To me, that's a serious inhibiting factor for scientists like myself to collect the data."

    Haines suggests that the fear factor surrounding pilots doesn't have as much to do with them being afraid of the objects they encounter as it does with the fear of losing their jobs if they talk about it.

    "Exactly. I don't think it's a physical fear. NARCAP comes along with the objective of trying to make flying safer for the public, and the airlines don't want to hear that because it implies it's not safe! For obvious reasons, many of the reports I have are from retired pilots."

    Like the one from Jividen, who filed a report with Haines last year -- almost 40 years after the fact, but it was still impressive.

    "First of all, it had a number of witnesses," said Haines. "There were six guys on board and they're not all going to mistake a common illusion.

    "After several minutes [the object] didn't change size, shape or intensity, which means that it not only accelerated in front of him and stopped at his 11:00 o'clock position, but it then maintained his forward velocity. We have to ask what kind of natural phenomenon can do that?"

    Former NASA scientist Richard Haines describes a harrowing pilot encounter with a UFO:

     

    Haines still isn't sure what these unusual objects are that so many pilots over decades have reported.

    "I honestly don't know, and as a scientist, I want to keep all the doors open until I've got sufficient evidence, but until that time, I'm not going to speculate."

    Alexander's research leads him to at least one important conclusion about the truly unexplained UFO or UAP cases.

    "If you get to the fundamental issue -- if there is an intelligence behind this, and it certainly appears to be true -- things like energy have to be key. Certainly understanding a different form of energy would be incredibly useful."

    Whatever the red circular object was that Jividen and his crew encountered that night in 1975, two things made a lasting impression on him.

    "First, there was no radar contact with it. Clearly, by the silhouette and movement of my aircraft, this was a solid, self-propelled object.

    "I don't think our physical science is advanced enough to evaluate what these things are. There's some physical phenomena going on that we just can't clearly interpret or evaluate -- it's obviously intelligently controlled, but it may not be ET."

    (A Criticism of Scepticism and Relativism)


    The Day the Skeptics Society Wasn't Skeptical - "Best Evidence for UFOs"

    Normally the Skeptics Society is a pretty reliable source of information concerning paranormal and pseudo-scientific claims. So imagine my surprise (and dismay) to read in the weekly E-Skeptic of March 28, 2012 a totally uncritical review of Leslie Kean's book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record. Titled "Best Evidence for UFOs" by George Michael, it praises Kean's "numerous credible eyewitnesses to UFO encounters and authoritative sources." He thinks she makes an " impressive case," and praises her "academic rigor." Plainly, either Michael did not read the same book I did, or he was entirely hornswoggled by the way that the crafty Kean disguises her hard-core UFO belief as respectable agnosticism.


    Michael is totally uncritical of  the claims and statements in Kean's book. Given that the title of the magazine is "Skeptic," why did it never occur to him to question any of the assertions made by Kean, instead of just accepting each and every one as Gospel truth? Did it not occur to him that, in a book written by a hard-core UFO believer (Kean's mentor in UFOlogy was the late Budd Hopkins), one needs to verify the accuracy of the picture the author is trying to paint? Are all these UFO cases really unexplained? What have we skeptics been doing, sitting on our hands, or scratching our heads, during the decades since these Oldie-But-Moldy UFO claims were made?

    The author is obviously totally clueless about the history of the UFO controversy. Otherwise, he would realize that many of Kean’s “unexplained” cases have been explained in detail by Philip J. Klass and others, years ago. Kean simply ignores all explanations and commentaries that she doesn’t like. To me that does not constitute "academic rigor," as Mr. Michael seems to think. But he apparently has never read any of Klass' UFO books, and I suspect doesn't even know who Klass was (or else he would have asked himself, "What did Klass write about this case during the 70s or 80s?"). I have already written a review of Kean's book, “‘Unexplained’ Cases—Only If You Ignore All Explanations,” that was published in the Skeptical Inquirer, March/April, 2011. I have now placed a copy of that review on my website, for those who would like to see what a critical analysis of Kean's dubious pro-UFO claims might look like.

    The British UFO skeptic Ian Ridpath wrote:
    In his review of Leslie Kean’s book, George Michael too readily takes the author’s word for various UFO cases that have turned out, on investigation, not to be quite as the author describes them. A case in point is the Rendlesham Forest incident of 1980, which he calls “Perhaps the most notable reported military case involving a UFO”. A little research (even a glance at Wikipedia, for example) would have shown that explanations for all major aspects of that case have been in print for over 25 years. To address the points he raises: No unusual radiation was detected at the site, the supposed landing marks were made by forest animals, and the story of examining a landed craft for 45 minutes is something that was made up many years after the event by one of the witnesses, apparently bent on becoming a UFO celebrity. I would not expect to learn that from a book by an uncritical UFO proponent such as Leslie Kean, but I would have expected to hear it in a review on these pages... There are quite a few other cases he needs to learn about, too.
    Peter Brookesmith, longtime paranormal researcher and regular contributor to Fortean Times, says
    This review contains what must surely be the most distorted version of the Rendlesham Incident to see the light....where was the wary & informed editorial control? It's not even as if this worthless tract has never been kicked in the fundament (and not only in hard-line skeptical journals) by other reviewers: it's been out & about for a while. So the real question is, how come the review was published by E-Skeptic at all?
    (The correct spelling is "Oberg")
    As far back as August, 2010 skeptic James Oberg wrote for MSNBC that Kean's book was based on a "questionable foundation." He quickly glanced at a list of supposed "unexplained" cases given by Kean, and immediately pulled out ten that he knew to be caused by Russian space launches.
    E-Skeptic is probably unaware that Kean's book was also made into an equally bad one-sided pro-UFO documentary on the History Channel. I have also written a critique of the misrepresentations made on this show.

    Apparently Mr. Michael is also unaware that the big controversy underway in UFOlogy at the moment involves Kean promoting a video of a fly buzzing around as being possibly "the case UFO skeptics have been dreading."   Even many of the UFO proponents are choking on that one, as her position is so obviously illogical. Had Michael known that Kean was vigorously defending such an obvious absurdity, I cannot imagine how he possibly could have written such a fawning review.

    Unfortunately, now Leslie Kean will be able to boast to reporters that her book has been given the 'seal of approval' of Skeptic magazine for its "academic rigor." As Ian Ridpath noted, if Michael had even bothered to check Wikipedia, he would have seen the problems in Kean's version of the Rendlesham case. Let us hope that in future articles concerning UFOs, the Skeptics Society will utilize the services of authors and reviewers whose understanding of the UFO controversy is better than paper-thin, and who will check out the validity of pro-UFO claims before credulously swallowing them.

    If you are getting more sighting reports than listed here, please be sure to enter them manually into CMS. To make this happen automatically, make sure your local MUFON Website is pointing to the CMS Reporting form on www.mufon.com and direct all calls you get to the MUFON website so that witnesses can enter their own report directly into CMS.

    ALL sighting reports received by CMS are already filled in by the witness, saving you and your investigators time. Each report is automatically sent to YOU, the State Director and Assistant State Director, for you to assign someone to follow-up and complete the report.

    If a UFO sighting comes in over the phone, or by e-mail, and you want to enter it yourself, simply go to CMS at http://mufoncms.com (once logged in) and click on "ADD CASE" in the upper right hand corner of the screen. This gives you a blank sighting reporting form that you can fill out while the witness is on the phone. Once the report is filled out be sure to click "SAVE" and you will have easily added your NEW report to CMS.

    Other interesting data points in CMS during March 2012 are the shape of the UFOs reported which were as follows;

    Shape of Object Number of Reports

    An Amazing UFO Film and the Paul Bennewitz Case Explored on The Paracast

    Sunday, April 1, 2012: The Paracast covers a world beyond science, where UFOs, poltergeists and strange phenomena of all kinds have been reported by millions across the planet.

    This Week's Episode: Gene and Chris present author and longtime UFO investigator Chris Lambright, author of "X Descending," and special guest Ray Stanford to discuss how how a private study of UFO films may have influenced amazing new developments in aerospace propulsion. Our guests will also discuss the mysterious Paul Bennewitz case and how he succumbed to possible government disinformation and dirty tricks.

    The “Shadow Figures” of the UFO Field
    By Gene Steinberg

    It has long been speculated that U.S. government agents have infiltrated the UFO field, and have caused all sorts of mischief. From the very earliest days of the modern era, we’ve heard reports of all sorts of peculiar government behavior.

    In 1953, UFO researcher Albert K. Bender shut down his flying saucer club, claiming that three men wearing black suits, supposedly government operatives, visited him and told him to shut up because he knew too much about UFO reality. Thus began the legend of the MIB, although such alleged shenanigans occurred even earlier.

    Take the 1947 Maury Island UFO case. As described in the book UFO pioneer Kenneth Arnold wrote with Ray Palmer, “The Coming of the Saucers,” when he traveled to Tacoma, WA to investigate the sighting, his hotel room was tapped, and his overheard conversations were being relayed to members of the press.

    Even stranger: When Arnold first arrived in Tacoma, he discovered that pretty much all the hotel rooms in that city were occupied. Despite that uncomfortable fact, a room had already been reserved in his name at the last hotel he called. Were these the acts of government spies, or individuals trying to play a prank on Arnold?

    With Bender, there is good reason to believe his alleged MIB encounters was due to other causes, perhaps more personal in nature. Some years later, Bender even wrote a book, “Flying Saucers and the Three Men,” heavily edited by legendary UFO author Gray Barker, in which he claimed his visitors were extraterrestrial.

    As chronicled in books and magazine articles by John Keel and others, supposed MIB have been infiltrating UFO research for a number of years. Pranksters? Government operatives? ET? Or maybe some people just became a little too paranoid when people began to contact them in the wake of a UFO or other offbeat encounter.

    More recently, a key figure in the investigation of the purported UFO crash in Roswell, NM, William Moore, confessed to being a willing participant in alleged government disinformation. Some years earlier, he wrote “The Roswell Incident” with Charles Berlitz, a world traveler who had also written hot-selling books about the Bermuda Triangle and other subjects. Nuclear physicist and UFO lecturer Stanton T. Friedman also heavily contributed to the Roswell book, but didn’t earn a byline.

    In passing, I knew Berlitz fairly well in those days, and offered him lots of guidance on two of his books in exchange of a couple of credits and free lunches.

    Moore was also instrumental in promoting the infamous MJ-12 documents, which supposedly describe a small group of scientists and military leaders formed to investigate Roswell and other UFO incidents.

    Everything fell apart for Moore when he appeared at a Las Vegas MUFON conference 1989, and confessed his willing participation in disinformation activities involving such people as Paul Bennewitz, a businessperson who found himself immersed in an “X-Files” sort of odyssey after giving a report about his UFO encounter, which included films and photographs, to the Kirtland Air Force Base.

    Moore claimed that he had worked with such curious fringe UFO figures as Richard Doty, a former Air Force Sergeant and possible government agent, in making Bennewitz believe that he had proof that ETs were present on Earth, and of the existence of a cover-up. In those days, Doty was allegedly working with a team of intelligence agents who gave themselves bird-like nicknames and called their little group, “The Aviary.” Part of Moore’s activities may have included the MJ-12 episode, although Stanton Friedman and others believe they can prove that at least some of those documents are genuine.

    Obviously, Moore’s credibility went out the window with that confession. Doty and other alleged “Aviary” members are still around, but it’s hard to say whether any of them can be believed. One would think that, if their activities were officially sanctioned, they wouldn’t be so free and easy to reveal the dirty details. Indeed, they’d be directed to say nothing in the interests of national security; that is, assuming these activities really happened, and that they didn’t just go rogue.

    These days, reports of such unsavory activities are almost non-existent. I suppose it’s possible that Moore, Doty and the rest of that crowd are little more than glory seekers who told these tall tales in the quest for fame and fortune. If that was their true motive, they failed.

    I dare say few people remember these characters nowadays. Sure, someone who has read the original Berlitz/Moore/Friedman book might be curious about Moore’s fate, but little more. Moore is still around, though he hasn’t participated in the UFO field since feeding information to author Greg Bishop for his 2005 book, “Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth.” Berlitz died in 2003. Stanton Freidman is still an active and respected member of the UFO community.

    The Bennewitz affair is also covered extensively in a new book by UFO investigator Chris Lambright, “X Descending,” which is featured on this weekend’s episode of The Paracast.
