Files Reveal Blackburn MoD Police UFO Sighting
UFO Depiction
Published: 11 August 2011

The object was said to be about 30ft (9m) across UFO claims were not investigated

Newly-released government documents have shown how three Ministry of Defence police officers spotted a UFO over Blackburn in 1979.

The files include a written description of how the object flew over the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) on 24 February 1979. They also include a drawing.

The object was said to be about 30ft (9m) across. As it flew off over Darwen, it lit up several streets.

Nine orange bright lights were also seen in the Lytham area in June 2006. 'Smash spacemen'

Photographs and sketches of UFOs, made by members of the public, are included in the files from the National Archives as well as their eyewitness reports.

The Blackburn sighting was submitted by the director of the ROF, who described the witnesses as "three sober, steady, reliable policemen, one of whom is a sergeant".

The UFO was described as a saucer-shaped object, which had a lightbulb-shaped dome on top, had trailed vapour and was at a height of up to 700ft (213m) in the sky.

"The sergeant reported to the local police who laughed like Smash spacemen," the report went on to say.

The files record how the unidentified object was seen on three separate occasions and made no sound.

The files can be downloaded free of charge for a month from the National Archives website.

Many of the reports show the MoD had a lack of will and resources to study thousands of reported sightings submitted to the department.

Possible UFO Landing in the Sandria Mountains in New Mexico
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:48 PM 8/7/2011

Bernalillo, New Mexico - 09-10-97

My gilrfriend and I were parked on a mesa, and looking at the Sandia mountains.

We noticed some very strange lights at the base of the mountains. The lights were moving right, then left, up, and down.

We sat there for a couple of hours just watching. I then decided to drive to the base of the mountains which took about 30 minutes from were we were.

By the time we got to where we thought we saw the lights, the sun was coming up. We drove through the streets in that area and noticed that parts of the streets looked like they had been melted and the shrubs on the side of the streets were smushed down in a circlar shape.

The green city electrical boxes you see on the side of streets were blown apart, but had no sign of a fire or explosion. As we were driving we noticed every 5 or 6 houses people were packing their cars with luggage, and seemed to be very worried about something.

I then took my girlfriend home.

So at 2:00 am we took a drive back to the same place and parked the car on the side of the road at the base of the mountains.

Within 10 minutes, little orbs of light would blink on and off throughout the fields of shrubs we were parked by.

There was an energy that I have never felt before.

It was if every hair on my body was sticking straight up and I felt so alive. I continued to go to the base of the mountains for several week every night and saw the same thing.

Government vehiclees (vans) would be parked at the top of my street. The local news stated if you see anything weird in the sky the military is testing weather balloons.

UFO History 1962: UFO over Titan Missile Silo near Tucson
Davis Monthan Base
Published: August 7, 2011

By Cherlyn Gardner Strong

On August 6th 1962, around 8:00pm, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base personnel began receiving reports of a “flying saucer”. Witnesses reported a brilliantly glowing light that descended over the Titan missile silo in Oracle, Ariz., near Tucson.

As two jets from Davis-Monthan approached to investigate, witnesses stated that the object “took off fast” and disappeared in seconds. The jets circled the area before heading back toward the base in Tucson.

When the coast was clear and the jets were gone, however, the object came back.

The incident would have been forgotten, if not the inclusion of the event in a bulletin released by the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) in September of 1962. The incident later received a brief mention in a book by APRO founders, Jim and Coral Lorenzen.

Jim and Coral Lorenzen founded APRO, a UFO research organization, in 1952.

Tucson-based APRO placed emphasis on scientific field investigations, backed by a staff of consulting scientists who worked closely with the organization. The scientists included Dr. James E. McDonald of the University of Arizona and Dr. James Harder of the University of California, Berkeley.

Both men would later testify about UFOs before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Astronautics in 1968.

APRO investigated tens of thousands of cases and grew to thousands of members and many state chapters. In 1969, a large portion of APRO’s members elected to form a new group called MUFON.

APRO would continue to investigate UFO sightings until 1988.

As for the UFO sighting that occurred between August 6th and August 7th of 1962, the incident was never covered by the press. In 2007, a report by NICAP made mention of this incident, mentioning that details relating to this incident remain elusive.

Witness Reports UFO-EBE Sighting in Australia
UFO Depiction
Published: 06 August 2011

Posted By : Edited by Albert Rosales

Location. New South Wales, Australia (exact location not given)

Date: February 18 2009 - Night

The witness had gone on her usual walk with her dog around the local race course and noticed a ‘small man’ standing about 200 meters away from her.

She didn’t notice at first, but then as she got closer he started to wave. She walked up to the 5 foot man and started talking about the weather.

The little man then asked her if she had seen any shooting stars in the night sky that night. Puzzled, she looked at him and he started laughing as though it was an inside joke.

She told him that she regularly sees them on her nightly walks. As she threw the ball for her dog to fetch she noticed a shiny blue/silver object over the other side of the lake, possibly a craft of some sort.

Shortly after noticing the craft the small 5 foot tall man, who looked very human, threw the ball for her dog, incredibly the ball went about 500 metres and her dog bolted after it.

She looked in shock at the small man and commented on his strength. He laughed and thanked her.

They then talked a little about dogs and then something strange happened, a thick layer of fog started to engulf them making it impossible to see where her dog was, the craft-like object was covered with the fog as well.

At the thought of losing her dog she ran into the fog looking for him. After a few moments, he came waving his tail and she felt relieved.

She turned to walk in the direction of the 5 foot tall man but he was nowhere in sight. She looked around for a few minutes and then walked over to where the ‘silvery craft’ had been.

It was also gone but she found some crushed grass at the site. (Unfortunately there is no additional description of the small man).

1983 - Possible Abduction near McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey
UFO Depiction
Published: 12:45 PM 8/5/2011

Cookstown, New Jersey - 08-15-1983

One evening in the middle of August 1983 I was walking my two guard dogs across a field next to my home.

It was very dark, no visable stars. At about 9:00 PM at the area closest to my home, my big male dog began to growl.

I tried to view my surroundings because of the vicious nature of my dogs, I did not want my dogs attacking a person or other animal. I could not see what was causing my big male to growl, so I headed out more in the center of the field away from the woodline that divided my home from the field.

I walked 2/3 of the way across the field, and now both dogs in unison were snarling and had the hair on their backs raised and were both looking up in the air in front of us.

Just this action alone spooked me as we were nowhere close to a tree or dwelling. I looked up in the direction the dogs were looking, and it took a moment for my eyes to adjust and I saw a huge, triangular object above us in the air suspended and not making a sound.

This object was stationary and was upright with the nose at the highest point and the wings below much like a rocket would take off in lieu of the way a plane would.

I noticed a small amount of a odd green lights closer to the nose. I then looked down and tried to calm my dogs, upon looking up I could no longer see the lights.

I then walked aproximately (2) ft to one side and the lights appeared again.

I was shocked at this and right away walked (2) ft back in the same spot and the lights disappeared. There was not even the slightest movement as this thing hovered there before us.

The texture of this thing was dark and had overlapping scales of "metal"(?) as its exterior surface. It was about (50) yards in front and above us.

At this point I then made a terrible mistake by lighting a cigarette and after my lighter flashed my dogs yelped and I too felt "something" projected from the object to us.

It was a sensation of utter contempt and foreboding. At this moment I became unnerved as I now sensed "something" below the object on the ground near us.

Again, looking at the dogs behaviour, it became obvious that they also sensed the same "feeling." I decided it was time to leave with all haste back home and the dogs led the way pulling me hard!

Even then I could sense something was either behind and following us, or we were being stared at from behind, the feeling was indescribable.

Upon walking inside the house, my then girlfriend asked where I had been for an hour and a half!

I swore the entire ordeal was no longer than (20) minutes.

I have no doubt in my heart or mind that this object was not friendly and I continue to this day with nightmares. I have kept this incident a secret and the location has never been searched.

It is important to note that this took place less than a mile from Macguire AFB. I had made the conclusion that if this was a top secret plane, it would have been tested on military property, not in a residential area.

In closing, I would like to note that Maguire AFB, Fort Dix and Lakehurst Naval Warfare Center are now the only combined Superbase in the United States, and I believe that due to thousands of acres of New Jersey pinelands, there is something similiar to Area 51 hidden below ground there.

This case is under investigation by Joe Criniti of MUFON New Jersey.

Archived Case of the Week

New York - Bright Red, Circular Object Passes US Airways Jet
Depiction of Sighting
The witness states: I was flying in today, from Dayton Ohio, to New York, (LGA). We were descending, I would imagine we were somewhere over New Jersey.

There are always many aircraft about in the NY corridor, so it's not uncommon to see different aircraft streaking by, below or to the side of you.

I was flying in an Embrajer-145, 50 seat jet, operated by US Airways Express, Chautauqua Airlines. It was a very clear day today, (11-23-03)

Approximately 2 PM - We must have been about 15 minutes from landing, because I remember the pilot saying as much. We were scheduled to land at 2:42 PM, but because of a tail wind we were going to come in early, around 2:15 PM or so.

Anyway, it seemed we were slowing down, then speeding up, which is not uncommon as you get into the flow of traffic, well, we were in the slowing down mode, when I looked out the window, (I was in a window seat, left side of the aircraft.) and I saw this red circular object pass to the side of us very quickly, then ascend with a lot of speed. It was traveling very fast, and what caught my eye was the shape.

It was definitely circular and a bright reddish color. I did a double take and tried to see where it went, but it disappeared from view rapidly. I still do not know what I saw, and thought maybe you or someone on your site could shed some light on it.

It just struck me as very odd, the shape of it, I've never seen anything that shape in the air before, and from an airplane, I really got a pretty good look at it, unlike the view one would get from the ground.

It also appeared to move in a very jerky type motion, not the fluid way a normal airplane would travel.

Anyway, maybe others have seen something similar. I don't know. I have been flying since I was a small child, I am now 36 yrs old, and I've never seen anything like that.

My first thought was military, thoughts racing as they do when you live in NYC post 9/11. Like maybe it was a flair or something that was shot.

The object seemed to be flying on its own, but it had that look initially like maybe it was launched from somewhere. I don't know, that was just my first impression.

But then after following it with my eyes for the brief time I was able to, it definitely seemed to be moving on its own power. I cannot tell you if we turned away from the object or the object turned away from us, or some combination of the two, as my eyes were just fixed on the object and I really wasn't paying attention to the exact movements of the airplane I was in, for that short time. I can tell you that the object did ascend rapidly in that jerky weird type of motion, as it passed us.

Again, the object I saw did not seem to behave like or look like any aircraft that I have ever seen. I am at a loss as to what I saw.
