Many UFO Researchers Die Under Mysterious Circumstances
UFO Depiction
Published: 12:10 PM 10/12/2012

Many UFO researchers working on their research in the 1970s and 1980s died under mysterious circumstances, and may have been killed.

This is the conclusion reached by an amateur astronomer, a former U.S. government adviser Timothy Hood. He made this statement at an international conference in Amsterdam dedicated to search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

This statement is true not so much for the chasers for unidentified flying objects, but the researchers trying to find extraterrestrial life, including professional astrophysics. Hood's conclusion was prompted by a 30-year study of this topic.

Famous American astronomer Morris K. Jessup, whose books about intelligent life beyond Earth have become bestsellers, committed suicide. He ended his life by opening an exhaust pipe in his car, locking his door and turning on the ignition.

Professor James Edward McDonald, who for many years served as head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Earth and studied unidentified aerospace objects, put a bullet in his head.

Edward Ruppelt, who led a project for the study of unidentified objects in the skies over the United States, died of a cardiovascular crisis at the age of 37. On November 5, 2001, William Milton Cooper, a famous UFO researcher who has repeatedly accused the U.S. government of hiding the truth about UFOs, was killed by police in his home. Cooper, who clearly suffered from delusion, lived in Yeager (Arizona). He bought weapons in bulk to create units to fight a secret government led by aliens.

Before the incident the police was told that Cooper threatened harmless residents, believing, apparently, that they were chasing him on the instructions of the authorities. The police surrounded the ranch where he lived. He said that anyone who would dare to cross the threshold of his private property will be killed, but the police ignored him. As a result, one policeman was seriously wounded, and the other one had to shoot the researcher as self-defense.

There is also the famous "Sheldon list." The famous American writer Sidney Sheldon, working on his novel "The End of the World", drew attention to a series of mysterious deaths among British specialists developing space weapons.

In October of 1986, Professor Arshad Sharif killed himself by tying one end of the rope to a tree, making a loop at the other end, putting his head through it and driving the car away. A few days later another London professor, Vimal Dazibay, jumped head first from the Bristol Bridge. Both of them worked on the development of electronic weapons for the English government program, similar to the American "Star Wars."

In January of 1987, another scientist, Avtar Singh-Guide, went missing. He was later declared dead. In February of 1987, Peter Pippel was run over by his car in his garage. In March of 1987, David Sands committed suicide by crashing his car into a building. In April of 1987, four developers of space programs died.

Mark Wiesner hung himself, Stuart Gooding fell victim of murder, David Greenhalgh fell off the bridge, and Shani Warren drowned. In May of that year, Michael Baker was killed in a car accident.

In a relatively short time, 25 people who worked in the space field died for various reasons. Sidney Sheldon, who discovered this tragic phenomenon, seriously believed that it had to do with aliens.

According to Timothy Hood, these deaths were not accidental, but rather, were the work of special services that eliminated the experts because they knew too much.

In the 1970's and 1980's in the United States there were secret UFO research programs such as the "Blue Book", "Aquarius", "Area 51", "Majestic 12", and GEIPAN. While official data show that most of these projects are now inactive, many conspiracy theorists doubt it. Every now and then "sensational" materials emerge in the media whose purpose is to convince the public that the U.S. government is hiding the truth about human contact with aliens.

Perhaps it has to do not with the aliens but military secrets or falsified facts. In any case, the intrigue remains. The topic of contacts with other civilizations continues to thrill, and the perceived danger makes it even more exciting.

UFOs? Hoosier Investigators Aim at Identifying Unexplained
Jill Beitz
Published: 12:35 PM 10/12/2012

By Ryan Trares

A glowing light hovered in the early-morning sky over Franklin.

Large and bright, the object seemed to pulsate and give off colored waves from the edges. Suddenly, the object ascended rapidly as an airplane passed by.

Other reports from throughout the county include strange lights in a dipper formation over Greenwood, bouncing orbs over Whiteland and orange triangular aircraft that make otherworldly whooshing sounds.

When local residents see something in the sky that they can’t explain, they call the Mutual UFO Network. The nationwide organization receives dozens of similar reports every year of unusual lights in the night sky.

The group is dedicated to tracking sightings of unidentified flying objects and investigating the causes, whether those are from nearby aircraft or something potentially extraterrestrial.

“It’s too much to say, ‘Where is this from?’ The best that we can do is thoroughly research it to the end,” said David MacDonald, executive director of the Mutual UFO Network. “You rule out a satellite. You rule out a comet. You rule out a shooting star. Then all you have left is ‘What could this be?’”

Representatives from the network will be at the White River branch of the Johnson County Public Library on Saturday to discuss the evidence they’ve found and how to be an investigator.

“There’s all of these reality shows about ghost hunters and UFO hunters. That’s something that people are interested in, but I thought we could take what they see on these shows and give them a little bit more meat-and-potatoes background on what these groups do,” said David Allen, adult services librarian at the White River branch.

The Mutual UFO Network has collected more than 30,000 reports of unidentified flying objects since it was founded in 1969. Almost all are strange lights that have shown up in the sky, Although plane crashes, weather balloons and completely unexplainable occurrences have been recorded, as well.

Since 2006, Johnson County has been named in 20 such reports. Bright lights, orange fireballs and bouncing orbs are common. On one occasion, a person in Greenwood reported a thin, blue line of light traveling quickly just above the horizon.

Photos of UFO over Levittown, Pennsylvania
UFO - Levittown, Pennsylvania
Published: 5:00 AM 10/13/2012

Levitttown, Pennsylvania - 10-05-12

I was in my backyard taking photos (between 5:30 and 5:50 am). I belong to a paranormal society and was taking photos of orbs.

I started to take some shots to the north of my house, when I noticed the light anomaly. I knew it was very different from any of the lights that I have seen during an investigation, but I still thought that the light was something paranormal.

I took about 9 photos of a bright, cigar-shaped object that was moving in the sky (in the north).

The light moved in different directions and it pulsated as it moved. There was no sound. I downloaded the files on to my computer and when I enlarged the photos you could see that the object was made up, of what looked like circles (or rings) connected to each other in a single row which was illuminated by the bright light.

I was very excited thinking, that I have just taken a photo of a different type of light energy. I called my sister who is the co-founder of our group. When she saw it she said the word UFO.

So that is when I got into contact with MUFON. I know that if any one could found out just what this is, its MUFON. I followed the object until it went down behind the trees in the distance and caught the last shot of it, as it came back up over the roof line of my house.

602 450 This case is under investigation by MUFON Pennsylvania.

Lighted Triangle Seen over Needles, California
UFO Depiction
Published: 11:40 AM 10/11/2012

Needles, California - 07-27-12

A few weeks back I saw something I think was a UFO. It was early evening and I was in the parking lot at the local Lowes.

I happened to look directly up and saw a VERY bright light in the sky. It was standing still. Then the light started dimming and the bright light became a charcoal-gray, triangle-shaped craft, with a light located directly beneath each of its 3 points.

The triangle shape was longer front to back and narrower side to side, making it look thinner than an equilateral triangle. It just hovered, rock-steady and made no noise at all.

The three lights changed color: sometimes white, sometimes red or blue.

In the center of the crafts underside was a much larger light but it was a very dim red color and it never brightened.

It then moved north, straight into a cloud and I noticed at the back of the craft a bright bluish-white light which I think might have been the engines that somehow worked without making noise or smoke.

After the UFO flew into the cloud I didn see it anymore.

I really wish people would take these things more seriously because they are really creepy.

Archived Case of the Week

1955 - Military Bombers Confirms UFO Contact
RB-47
Published: 2:05 PM 10/11/2012

On June 4, 1955, at 0030Z a westbound RB-47 experienced electronic and visual contact with an unknown flying craft. The RB-47 gun warning light was flashing and the 5 radar had a contact at 7000 yards.

Visual contact was made with a glistening silver metallic unknown that was seen low and to the rear and slightly to the right.

The configuration of the unknown was obscured by contrails. The unknown aircraft broke off contact to the north with an increase in speed. The RB-47 was at 32,000 feet, and seen flying at Mach .735.

The radar and visual contact was maintained for 9 minutes.

On June 7, 1955, at 0050Z, a westbound RB-47 at 35,000 feet experienced electronic contact with an object 3,500 yards at the same altitude. The scope return was square and rectangular.

On June 8, 1955, at 2044 Z, an eastbound RB-47 flying at 30,000 feet at 450 knots experienced electronic and visual contact with an unknown aircraft.

The K system radar indicated sweep from another radar. Visual contact indicates aircraft was 5 to 10000 feet higher and 7 miles behind for twenty minutes.

The copilot of the RB-47 states the unknown aircraft had a fighter configuration. A contrail was observed and a second RB-47 traveling 80 miles behind the first also saw the contrail.

Thanks to Hank Schuren and SAC.
