Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs have been reported since the biblical days but no time in history has there been as much extraterrestrial activity as the present day. Fact, fiction, or hallucinations?

Edgar Mitchell, NASA Apollo 14 astronaut, admits insider knowledge that UFOs are real

When big-name scientists, celebrities, or other influential people admit their belief in the UFO phenomena, it’s an eye-opener.  When an astronaut, one that has flown an Apollo mission, says that he has inside knowledge that UFOs and aliens are indeed visitors from other planets, well, it’s jaw dropping.  That’s exactly what happened in 2008 when Edgar Mitchell, of Apollo 14 fame, told Kerrang Radio while on air, “I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real, although it has been covered up by our governments for quite a long time.” Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut on the Apollo 14 mission, became the 6th man to walk on the moon.  During his 1971

Nuremberg Germany UFO Battle (1561)

Nuremberg Battle One of the earliest of documented sightings of aerial phenomena took place on April 4, 1561 at dawn over Nuremberg, Germany. What was described as a war in the heavens, with a wide variety of craft ranging from spheres to spear-like cylinders to crosses and "plates". The sky was apparently filled with the machines, clashing in battle for well over an hour.  The battle was such that a winner was perceived as well.  Spheroid UFOs were seen emerging from cylindrical 'motherships'.  At the conclusion of the battle, it seems a magnificent, black, spear-like super-ship of some kind came upon the scene.  An ancient woodcut (click image to view full-size picture) was created by Hans Glaser to document the event.  A second woodcut was created by

The Hopeh China Sighting (1942)

Hopeh China Photograph A young Japanese student Masujiro Kiryu, was going through his fathers scrapbook of photographs from the China Campaign, just before World War II, when he discovered a strange cone-shaped object in the sky above a Tsientsien Street.  In the photograph, a number of people in the street are looking up and two are pointing up at the object (click on picture for full-size view).  A sidewalk photographer snapped a picture of the strange machine and his father bought it from the street vendor for a souvenir of the place.  The sidewalk photographer was later discovered to be an American man on duty who was walking the streets of the northern Chinese town.  The American thought it was a "hat" silently blowing across the

The New Jersey Lights (2001)

Strange Lights in the Sky On July 15, 2001, the weather in Carteret, New Jersey was perfectly clear and calm. There were no clouds in the sky and all stars were clearly discernible. Around 12:30 AM on that Sunday morning, phones at the Carteret Police Station began ringing off the hook. Witnesses, and there were hundreds of them, were reporting a extraordinary array of lights in the sky. The object was spotted above the New Jersey Turnpike in the vicinity of the Newark Airport. Traffic was snarled up as hundreds of drivers pulled to the shoulder of the Turnpike to observe the unknown object. About 15 to 30 golden lights, in a triangular configuration, were hovering, silently about 3000 feet above the city. The lights were spaced

The Phoenix Lights – UFO sighting witnessed by thousands of people (1997)

Strange  lights reported over Phoenix, Arizona On March 13, 1997, one of the most massively witnessed UFO sightings occurred in the skies over and around Phoenix, Arizona.  Witnessed by thousands of people and photographed by hundreds, there is no doubt that something was seen over the skies of Phoenix that night.  The question remains - what did they see? The strange lights, which would come to be called The Phoenix Lights (or Lights over Phoenix) were sighted during a three hour period between 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm on March 13.  They covered a 300 mile corridor from the Nevada line through Phoenix to the northern edge of Tucson.  Since thousands of witnesses called local Air Force bases, news stations (including the infamous Coast to Coast radio show),

Rendlesham Forest UFO event near Royal Air Force base in Suffolk (1980)

Introduction to Rendlesham Forest Rendlesham Forest is located in Eastern England near the Royal Air Force Base at Woodbridge, Suffolk.  Nearby is another RAF base - Bentwaters.  The two bases are separated by a small strip of woods called Rendlesham Forrest.  Both bases are renowned for their unusual military activities and top secret research - mustard gas was tested near these bases during the earlier World Wars.  Top secret radar experiments (code named Cobra Mist) were conducted here too.  Both bases, known as the "twin bases", are leased to United States military. On the night of December 26, 1980, a Soviet satellite was schedule to crash into the atmosphere and burn up on entry.  Two days later, December 28, 1980, another Soviet military satellite was to break

UFOs over Washington (1952)

Radar Warnings In the summer of 1952, Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base became quite alarmed when radar picked up several flying objects over Washington D.C.  Even more alarming, coordinates indicated that he objects were flying directly over the White House and the United States Capitol. Around midnight on July 19, 1952, radar operators at Washington National Airport noted several 'blips' on the radar over Washington D.C. (15 miles from the Washington National airport).  These objects appeared to be traveling at 100 to 130 m.p.h. and would then suddenly accelerate to unbelievable speeds - sometimes in excess of 7,200 m.p.h.  Washington National radar operators immediately contacted a local radio operator who confirmed that he too was tracking the objects.  With two confirmations in hand they

The Trent UFO Photos (1950) – UFO photos taken in McMinnville, Oregon become legend

On May, 11 1950, in McMinnville, Oregon, Mrs. Trent was in her backyard feeding their rabbits when she noticed a strange object in the overcast sky. In a panic, she ran into the house and called to her husband who was in the kitchen grabbing a bite to eat. After hearing his wife excitedly describe the object, he quickly retrieved the family's camera and rushed out of the house to photograph the object. They later described the object as a flat metallic disk, "brightly metallic, silver or aluminum colored, with a touch of bronze". They estimated that the UFO had a width of 20 to 30 feet. The object moved towards them and was tilted at a slight angle. The Trent's indicated that it did

The Kenneth Arnold Sighting – first UFO report

Introduction On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold saw something that would not only change his life forever, but his experience also served as a catalyst for our modern UFO craze.  His report after seeing nine unidentified flying objects, is generally considered to be the first widely reported UFO sighting in the United States. Kenneth Arnold Sighting Arnold, a recreational private pilot, was returning home from a flight in Wyoming when he received a radio signal requesting assistance in the Yakima, Washington area.  It seems there was a missing troop transport and a aerial search party was being assembled. At 3:00 p.m., flying at 9,000 feet, a bright flash of light caught Arnold's attention.   Turning to look our of the side window of his airplane, Arnold was amazed to

Alien Autopsy

Possibly no event in the UFO community has triggered as much debate as the 'alien autopsy' film.  The film, showing a purported autopsy performed on a dead alien from the Roswell, New Mexico crash, offers a unparalleled view into what a real alien could possibly look like.  The film first surfaced in 1995 on a British television talk show.  Later aired on the Fox network in the United States, it garnered an audience of over 10 million people. Ray Santilli, the purveyor of the film, will not disclose the identity of the filmmaker although it is believed that Ray may have slipped up in a public Usenet post and revealed the name of the cameraman - Jack Barrett, a 82 year old male from Florida.  Ray

The Aurora Project

Government Secret Projects That the United States government conducts "Black Projects" is no secret. Black projects are projects that are considered top secret. They are so top secret that the government will not even acknowledge that they exist and will hide the budget details of the project or mislead the public by providing false details on the project. The US Military/Industrial complex understandably requires that these projects exist. One reported project is called "Aurora". The Aurora project is a supposed project to create an ultra high-speed aircraft, possibly unmanned, capable of speeds in excess of Mach 6. Witnesses have reported seeing the aircraft in the state of Nevada near the infamous Area 51. Observers report seeing a large, triangular shaped craft and have described it as "a

The Travis Walton Abduction

No abduction case in history has garnered as much publicity, fascination, and controversy than the Travis Walton abduction in 1975.  And it's no wonder.  Do you believe the unshaken testimony of 7 witnesses, a testimony that has not deviated even years after the witnesses parted and gone their separate ways?  Does the polygraph evidence, 13 tests in all, prove the witnesses are offering us the truth and nothing but the truth?  Or do you believe the nay Sayers who claim the event was a well-planned hoax, nothing more than a 'story' told to allow the crew to escape an inevitable failure of their government contracted project?  It's quite possible that in this case, only 'time will tell'.  But for now, we can present the full

The Aurora Texas Airship Crash

Reports Emerge The year was 1897, during the era of the “great airships”, when an event occurred in the small town of Aurora that redefined the entire city. In the late 1800’s, people all over the United States had begun reporting sightings of blimp like aircraft floating above their cities. On April 17, 1897, word spread from Aurora, Texas that an airship had tumbled through space and crashed into a local windmill located atop a small hill on the outskirts of town. The event triggered newspaper reports in both nearby Dallas and Fort Worth and eventually grew into a National story headline. The most accurate account of the incident can be found in an April 19, 1897 article, written by S. E. Haydon, a part-time news reporter,

The Roswell UFO crash – evidence points to something out of this world

Introduction On July 2, 1947, just 8 days after the Kenneth Arnold sighting, an amazing turn of events began unfolding in Roswell, New Mexico.   It wasn't until over 30 years later that the world began piecing together these amazing events to form a complex puzzle that to this day remains the most controversial and talked about UFO encounter in history.  It seems as if an unidentified flying object had crashed in Roswell. As the world was talking about the Kenneth Arnold sighting, the inhabitants of Roswell, New Mexico saw a large disc shaped object fly over their sleepy town.  Some reported that the craft appeared to be in distress and others reported hearing a tremendous explosion just prior to the crash event. Mr. and Mrs. Dan Wilmot were

Gulf Breeze

  Gulf Breeze, Florida Gulf Breeze, Florida, a town with a population of just slightly over 6000, enjoyed their anonymity.  But in the winter of 1987, their sleepy little town became the focus of the world. On November 11, 1987, Edward Walters, a local building contractor, was working late when he noticed a light outside of his window.  Peering out, he saw a glowing object partially hidden by the 30 foot pine tree growing in his front yard.  Ed went outside to investigate and was afforded a much better, if not stunning view of the unworldly object.  He described seeing a top-shaped craft with a row of dark squares with smaller "portals" between them.  The object, with its bright, luminous ring around the bottom, hovered slightly above the
