Rig Worker Snaps UFO in Shetland Islands, Scotland
Rig worker mystified by UFO-like object he snapped from Sullom Voe oil terminal in Shetland
Published: 10:31 AM 2/9/2013

OILMAN Steven Slane says he was 'freaked out' by strange parachute-shaped object which appeared in seconds as he took picture of sunset.

AN OIL worker snapped an incredible picture of what looks for all the world like a UFO in the skies over the Sullom Voe oil terminal in Shetland.

It was taken by joiner Steven Slane, 41, who works for oil and gas company Petrofac at the terminal.

Steven took the pictures on the afternoon of January 27 and couldn’t believe his eyes when he looked at them later that night.

He said: “I’d taken the pictures earlier it the day because I saw some nice scenery as I was coming along the road from Southern Voe towards Southerness and the sun was setting.

“It looked very nice so, even although it was very cold, I just stopped and took a couple of photographs in quick succession.

“It was only late on in the evening when I was having a wee look at the photos that I noticed something different in the second picture.

Stephen Slane with his picture of lens flare from a sunset on Shetland “I was a bit surprise and shocked when I noticed the strange shape.

“It looked like there was something flying up with a propeller at the bottom, in the shape of an inverted Eiffel Tower or a parachute. It must have appeared in seconds, or even less.”

Steven, who has just returned to Glasgow from three weeks at work, showed the picture to his pals who all agreed it looked a bit strange so he decided to contact the Record.

He added: “I didn’t know what the heck it was and although I don’t believe in aliens or UFOs, I was a bit freaked by it and thought there was something strange.

“I hadn’t noticed anything unusual when I first took the picture because it happened so quickly.

“It would be good to find out more about it, if anyone has any ideas.”

Large Triangle UFO Moves over Candler, North Carolina
UFO Depiction
Published: 3:29 PM 2/8/2013

Candler, North Carolina - 01-13-13

Shape: Triangle - Duration: 15 minutes

I was walking my dog around 8:00 p.m. on 1/13/13. There is a wide view of a long distance mountain range & the southern sky from my front yard where I was standing.

Looking at the mountains I saw an extremely bright, white light moving slowly toward me. It was moving from south to north slightly west of my position. My first thought was that the light was much brighter than any plane or helicopter I’d ever seen.

It seemed to be illuminating the clouds in front of it the length of 2 airplanes. I watched the light for about 10 minutes thinking it must be a military plane.

It came out of the clouds & flew low, lower than any large planes would fly in this valley. It moved very slowly & smoothly, sort of floating along.

I kept waiting to hear the engine, but it didn’t make a sound. I knew it wasn’t any military craft.

As it got closer I realized how low it was, it was just above the tree tops of the 100/120 foot pines on the west side of my yard. Then it went behind the trees.

Again I wondered why I couldn’t hear an engine or something.

When it came out from behind the trees I could see the bottom of it. It was a black (matt finish) triangle-shaped craft with a white light on each of the rounded tips & a dimmer white/orange light in the center of the belly.

I watched the underside pass by me while looking west through a 25–30 foot opening in the trees. I couldn’t see the entire craft at one time; it was much larger than that 30 foot opening.

I continued to watch even after I couldn’t see it anymore thinking it was going to run into the mountain north of me. When I didn’t see an explosion I went inside & told my husband about it & drew a picture.

I thought it was odd that it was moving so slowly & I thought it was odd that the light was so bright, but the thought of it being a UFO didn’t occur to me until I realized it wasn’t making any noise & it was very low.

Then when I saw the matt black metal underside I was convinced.

I haven’t told anyone besides my husband for fear of ridicule. Since that night I research UFO sightings on the Web every chance I get. I was surprised no one reported it, but as time passed I thought if there were other witnesses maybe they were just as afraid to speak up as I was. So I decided to file this report.

I’m still in shock & try not to let it consume my thoughts, but I’m sure what I saw was not of this world.

Abductees, Aliens and other Odd Topics
UFO Depiction
Published: 2:24 PM 2/6/2013

I have been writing for about two years about a group of people I call Real Time Abductees. I call the group real time due to the fact they are taken when they are fully awake while going about the usual business of their normal days. These people are taken against their will they are taken by beings that are not human and returned hours later with little or no memory of what happened to them during the lost hours of their abductions.

The people are fully aware of when the event begins, have only flash or no recall of what took place during the kidnapping and are always returned feeling drugged, ill and disoriented. They are at times returned near the place they were taken however many Real Time Abductees are returned far from where they were taken. At times they are placed in areas they have never been to before making the ordeal very difficult for the poor souls who are enduring these events.

Real Time Abductees are not sleeping when these abductions occur, do not claim telepathic communication with aliens or have the encounters brought forth via hypnotism. They are everyday people going through everyday routines of everyday life when they are against their will kidnapped by something that easily overpowers them rendering them unconscious. The abductees have suffered from these events for most of their lifetimes many having them starting when they small children.

I have been fortunate to have six Real Time Abductees from the Eastern Coast of the United States agree to come together in a group over the past year to try to find answers to the horror of being an abductee by forming this group. It was the hope of the group that by sharing with one another what they experienced they could better understand the ordeal of having this type of abduction.

One thing that brought the group together in the first place was the hope that what they had to share and say would somehow someday help or save other people who may be suffering the same horrors they have during their lives. They also felt they may have useful information about the kind of abductions they had to endure that could help mankind understand what is going on to so many on this planet each and every day.

The fact it is ignored swept under the carpet or laughed at has been a torment to all of these people. They all felt that the fact they have lived such incredible experiences without any benefit being gathered from it a sorrow and shame. So much information could have been obtained from people like the Real Time Abductees however instead they have only met with deaf ears and ridiculing remarks by the very people who should have been wanting to collect data on what was happening to them.

These people were kidnapped many times in broad daylight, harmed and returned ill and altered yet no one was there to help or protect them. Society turned their backs on these people. I find the fact they were willing to try to make a difference by meeting in this group and allowing me to write about what they had to say a very kind gesture by people we as a society have abandoned and abused on top of the horror they have been forced to endure.

In this article I will talk about the views of this group on the different types of beings they feel invade, visit and take part in the many things that aliens do while visiting our planet.

The first thing this group talked about was how shocked they were when they looked at how the subject of aliens were handled among the many inter net sites, forums and radio shows that discuss the topic. The Real Time Abductees thought that at this point in time people understood that aliens came in many forms and from many different places.

When the group started to view the topic on the internet they instead found a very closed view by most concerning the overview of this subject, They found a few different types of being discussed by the paranormal public such as Grays, Reptilians and the human light haired tall beings but felt past that the public seemed closed down to what this group feels is really happening when it comes to alien visitation.

The Real Time Abductees feel that there is a huge amount of different type of alien beings as well as other unknown creatures visiting and watching what goes on here on earth and with the primitive human race. They feel that beings come not only by way of universal travel but also via inter dimensional, time or even trans universe travel. The amount of life that could be visiting us is as vast as the amount of different life forms found on our own planet. The group thinks it is a huge error in our thinking to limit the amount of life forms that may be visiting, watching or even living among us.

They also all believe we are considered low level or primitive life forms which are why the interest in us is limited or kept at the level of curious overlooking, experimental or containment. They feel we may be a cosmic zoo outing for some or source of biological material for others.

They do not think we are a danger to them or important to them and find the self-importance that many place on the subject of alien –human contact funny. The group feels that if we were truly something that aliens wanted or needed beyond what they are taking or using us for we would have long ago been rounded up and stored, breed and kept for those purposes. The group feels that we are an easy pick for what they need without being a threat to them in any way.

The abductees think we are easily kept floundering around as we continue on our primitive journey towards a more technical future. They think the problem for the human species is accepting the fact we are on the bottom of the ladder in the cosmos and not as important or powerful as we think we are. To the beings with the advanced technology and science knowledge needed to transverse the cosmos or travel between dimensions, universes or even time we are simply ignorant struggling animals.

Watching how we conduct our planet and thrive still on war and conflict we must seem very primitive in deed. We are only now entering in to the world of technology and that may be by their helping hand.

The Abductees can only describe the one form of being that they have been forced to deal with and share their opinions why they think they have been abducted. They warn however that their experiences are only one type of event happening by the hand of one type of non-human being.

They are sure other entities from other places also are following their own agendas while they visit earth and may well be taking humans for other purposes. They also think that beings visit the earth and take and do not return people. The reasons for this type of abductions or kidnappings are not understood. Obviously the abductions where the people go missing are the ones that are most feared as well as the ones least talked about due to the horror that may be involved.

The Real Time Abductee group describes the beings that they encounter during their abductions as being similar in physical makeup to humans. The Real Time Abductees can only give flash memories of their captors due to the fact that most of their abductions are wiped from their memory leaving only pieces of the details that take place during the time they are taken.

All of the Abductees in the group however had almost identical recall of what the beings looked like who were present during their abductions. They describe them as about human size in height and thin. They have a human form with a head, arms and legs arranged on a human type body form. They have two eyes and a place where a mouth would be that seemed to be covered offering only a slit where a mouth would normally be found. They did not recall a nose or ears.

The abductees all agreed that the beings were wearing what appeared to be a skin like covering or suit that completely enclosed every part of them like an exterior skin. It was seamless and in a white/silver color. They also noted that everything around them also seemed to be in that same color making it nearly impossible to make out outlines of things around them.

They could tell there were things that were table like or computer like in the area but all of it seemed to blend into the surroundings of this strange silver white color making it difficult to judge shapes and sizes of the objects surrounding them. The Abductees do not recall any direct communication with their abductors and could only recall the sensation of complete heart stopping fear during their events.

They do not recall being harmed or inter acting with the beings but do have flashes of seeing other humans around them. They could not distinguish if the humans were working along with the strange looking beings or if they were other abducted people.

They said the beings had a lens type of glass covering their eyes that was very dark in color however they could see movement of their real eyes behind the lens which made it clear the beings were in protective covering from head to toe, if they had toes!

The abductees do not recall any pain during the abductions in fact recall little if anything of the time with these creatures. It was not until they were returned and the ordeal had ended that they found they became ill. Often it would take days even weeks for the aftermath of the abductions to take its toll on the abductees.

The abductions occurred for many of the abductees multiple times during their life which after time left them physically altered and dealing with lifelong aliments. Common problems in the group included spine, neck and bone problems along with strange lingering skin problems as well as repressed immune system diseases.

A shared effect after the abductions by all the abductees was a noticeable increase in their mental abilities. An increase in their skill sets or IQ was seen in each one of them. It was the only positive result of the abductions for the group as they were able to use these increases to help provide increased security and protection from their abductors which they all believe has helped slow or end the awful events from continuing in their lives.

The group has spent hours trying to find the common denominator that made them the target of these abductions. They have compared many notes and have formed a list of what they have in common that may have made them the target of these events.

The obvious things are in appearance. They are all fair skinned; most have light color eyes and they all have at least part of their family coming from Irish decent. All the abductees have Rh-negative blood. The one that did not have this blood type was the son of an abductee who did have it.

Another thing that I noticed about this group of people is that they were bright and curious about the world around them and all seemed to people who were more of a loner or rebel type of personality and not a follower or type of person to be part of a certain click of friends or consumed with following what is the in thing at the moment.

They are all people who march to their own drummer and do not care about what is the current fad. They are all strong individuals. Many but not all of the abductees come from a family line of other relatives who were known to have lost time or abduction experiences as well.

The abductees share other traits however they are from years of being subjected to the strange abduction kidnappings and the toll it took on them physically - not a common trait like RH negative blood.

When questioned about what they think was done to them during their lost time hours of being taken by their abductors they also had similar if not nearly the same accounts. They recall being handled by their abductors but did not have any recall of pain or being tortured in any way. They do think however that they were used for their biology and could have been experimented on or used to collect some kind of biological material however they do not recall it. They all know they had the memory of their abductions cleared by their captors before being returned.

The Real Time Abductees remember lots of silver white color including that being the color of the outer skin type material they believe the beings that took them were wearing. They all agreed they did not see the real form of the creatures that abducted them due to the fact they were incased in this skin like suit. The abductees all agreed that the beings eyes were covered with a large lens and all remarked at being able to see very fast flickering or blinking large eyes behind the black covering lens over their eyes.

When returned from their abduction ordeals the abductees all became ill and ran fevers for a few days and vomited as well. They would arrive back with rashes on their arms and legs and had severe headaches for days afterwards. It would take anywhere from a few days up to a few weeks for them to feel well after being taken. They all held one memory from their experiences and that was of total heart stopping fear that stayed with them for a very long time after one of these events occurred.

The Real Time Abductees all have long term after effects from their life time of abduction experiences. The physical problems can be severe and have caused major problems in their lives. They know they have been altered and feel the fact they have been changed mentally is from the ongoing procedure of removing their memory of the abductions that their captors preform while they are taken.

The group feels that each time this was done to them it opened up pathways in their brain that helped by slowly increasing their ability to learn and think quickly which helped them achieve what they needed to do in order to become successful educated people. It is the only positive thing they can say about what otherwise is an evasive horrific event of intrusion by those who kidnap, alter and then toss them back like small insignificant fish!

The conversations with the Real Time Abductees included their thinking on why they were taken as well as what they think other people may be abducted for by other life forms. I will talk about that as well as some of the warning this group had for us all concerning the dangers they feel we all face in future articles.

I spent many hours with this group of Real Time Abductees asking questions and listening as they talked together about their life experiences with the nightmare of being abducted as well as what they think concerning different types of aliens that may be visiting our planet.

My time with this group of people has changed my opinions on many unknown topics as well as my view on the abduction phenomenon. It has been a life changing experience for me to spend time listening to this group of people discussing many subjects and I am grateful I was able to have the precious time I did with them. They are unlike other people and having the opportunity to talk with them has been a rewarding event in my life.

For now be careful out there and always pay attention to your surroundings and not the wireless gadgets in your hand. That may be the every choice that could save your life.

England's Air Ministry UFO Encounter
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:32 PM 2/7/2013

Peterborough, England - 09-26-63

A UFO incident took place at Peterborough, England, that involved both civilian and military witnesses. The facts were set forth in a two-page restricted report from Sergeant T.G.M. Kendall at RAF Wittering, Northants, who graphically relayed to the Air Ministry what took place; and since this particular report is of some significance, I reproduce its contents in total:

"Sir, I have the honor to report the following facts for your consideration. I was NCO in charge [of the] Operations Room at 2240 hours on 26th September, 1963 when I received a telephone call from Mr. STRICKSON of [witness’s address] who, in company with Mr. QUANTRELL of the same address, saw what he considered to be two unidentified flying objects. The objects were in view in the first instance from 2000-2100 hours.

"During that time two orange colored balls of light travelled from the South to the East in a zigzag fashion, then were seen again moving from West to East. They were then seen to orbit overhead for some ten minutes during which time, three or four objects left the two first mentioned and then rejoined them.

"Mr. Strickson was not able to estimate the range or the altitude of the sightings, but considered them to be higher than an aeroplane but lower than a star.

"I received a further call from Mr. Strickson at 2250 hours reporting two objects blue in colour, higher than the previous sighting, and travelling very quickly. At 2320 hours Mr. Strickson informed me of two sightings which had taken place at 2305 hours when two objects were seen to move west to east in close formation one behind the other, the one in front being appreciably brighter than the one behind.

"At 2330, 2340 and 2350 hours, I received calls from S.A.C.W. [Author’s Note: Senior Aircraftswoman] Marshall, the Duty PBX Operator, who had seen a bright orange light moving north to south which had turned south in the first instance and subsequently orbited overhead. At one time she thought that she had heard engines but was not sure.

"As a result of these calls, I joined S.A.C.W. Marshall outside the PBX building and saw at 0010 and 0020 hours two orange lights approx. 30 seconds apart which appeared from W.S.W. at a constant altitude heading approx. 100 degrees, flying what I considered to be a left hand race track pattern.

"I lost sight of the objects as they described a descending left hand turn onto the reciprocal of the visible leg. The sightings were exactly 10 minutes apart and speed, direction and altitude appeared to be constant. Flying Officer Gastrell was Duty Operations Officer when these sightings were reported. On his instructions I informed the Duty Operations Officer No.3 Group of the various reports. He in turn contacted the Duty Operations Officer at Air Ministry.

"The Duty Operations Officer at Air Ministry required a full report to be submitted to Air Ministry D.D.I. Tech [Author’s Note: Deputy Directorate of Intelligence, Technical] giving full particulars of all witnesses I met. Report giving the conditions at two specimen times during the period of sightings is attached to this report. I have the honor to be, Sir, Your obedient Servant, T.G.M. Kendall, Sergeant."

Once again the Air Ministry quickly came up with a solution. All of the witnesses (including trained military observers) had been fooled by an air-to-air refueling operation. However, an examination of the files pertaining to the case show that, in reality, this was simply the Ministry’s best "guesstimate," as no such refueling operation was ever officially confirmed as having taken place.

The cases cited above are just three of many that caught the attention of the Air Ministry in August and September 1963; yet they were all dismissed as of no consequence – even though the witnesses were serving or retired military personnel.

A case of the government of the day merely wanting to be rid of the UFO controversy because it was embarrassed by the fact that it didn’t have a full understanding of the matter?

An attempt to play-down officialdom’s shocking knowledge of visitations to our world from something unearthly? Or something else?

Fifty years later, it’s unlikely we’ll ever have solid answers.

Archived Case of the Week

Man Relates Uncle's UFO/Alien Experience at Air Force Base
UFO Depiction
Published: 4:25 PM 2/7/2013

Greenville, Mississippi - 1950s

My uncle was an electronics specialist and a civilian employee at the Air Force base in Greenville, Mississippi in the mid-50s.

One day some military authorities escorted him and several other civilian employees into a large aircraft hangar and ordered them to stay there until they were told they could come out.

None of the men’s questions about what was going on were answered. The military men closed the hangar doors and left. The men in the hanger hung around the area where the hangar doors came together and they discovered they could peek outside and see what was going on.

A disk shaped aircraft about 40 feet in diameter descended vertically and landed on the tarmac outside the hangar.

Several men with cameras filmed the entire incident from an elevated scaffolding. Other cameramen stood on the ground.

A door opened on the aircraft and a child-sized alien being walked down a short ramp. The alien used a hand-held computer to communicate with the military personnel.

The aircraft was on tripod landing gear with wheels, and several men were ordered to push it into the hangar across the way.

Once the alien aircraft was inside the hangar, the men closed the doors. The doors were reopened several minutes later and the same men pushed the alien aircraft back outside and to its original position.

The men around the aircraft stepped away from the aircraft and it soon lifted vertically and silently and quickly darted away. As soon as the alien aircraft was gone, some military men opened the hangar doors where the civilian men were standing and told them to carry on.

I was a teenager when I heard this story and my reaction to it was a mix of uncertainty and disbelief. My uncle didn’t have any reason to lie about it, but... years later, I was watching a program about UFOs on television, and a man who saw the same event described it exactly as my uncle had described it years earlier; in every detail.

I was amazed, but while I have seen many UFO programs on television repeated several times, I never saw that particular interview again.

I now realize the importance of that event, but my uncle died several years ago, and I imagine that the other witnesses are probably all dead as well.

Just the same, I wanted to get this information out there for what it is worth, so here it is. I hope it proves to be beneficial.

Our government isn’t about to confess that it has lied to us about UFOs since 1949. Doing so would destroy what little credibility it still has.
