Eyewitness Testimony

I honestly don't know where to begin here. Putting this up is a little scary for me because all this stuff really happened.

It's been close to 5 years, I'm getting older, and it's time to come forward with my story. Let me also say I'd much rather talk to someone about this than type it all out, but I'll do my best.

On Saturday, May 27, 2006, my girlfriend was away for the day, and I had our apartment to myself. I spent some time playing a new video game, and had a long phone conversation with my mom. It was probably the deepest conversation we ever had, and she told me a story about my birth.

I knew we were both sick when I was born, and that she had to have an emergency c-section, but apparently her heart stopped for 45 seconds while under. When she woke up to my father holding a newborn me, all she could do was tell him about the dream she had.

She was aboard a flying saucer with a higher power or Jesus, looking for others.

But for some reason no one else was ready, or able to board with them. This kind of blew me away, she hesitated my whole life to tell me this because of my profound interest in the subject.

OK... so we finish up the conversation, it's 7:20 PM and I try to go back to my new game.

But instead, I put down the controller, got up and looked out the window of my 7th floor apartment to see this white, egg-shaped god-knows-what right out there. It was about the size of a minivan, maybe a small bus, and it was so close I could have hit it with a rock.

It immediately began moving away very quickly, and I noticed two black dots, one on either side of it.

They started swirling around the egg, and would 'splash' in and out of it, causing it to shimmer black and white so fast it looked silver. It looked kind of like a molecule.

OK, now here's where it gets tough... I only saw it up close for maybe 10 seconds, it flew away pretty fast, but I kept my eye on it and could still see it as a black speck against the clear sky for a good 2 minutes.

Then it started blinking out, and I said out loud "No! Come back," and waved it back and this black speck zapped me. It felt like I jumped into ice water, and had my brain ripped in half.

The sky turned a bright purple, I want to say ultra-violet and against it were hundreds of different-sized transparent white circles, or 'orbs,' like a polka-dot sky.

It brought me to my knees and I urinated myself.

OK, here's the part that really scares me, I wouldn't bother coming forward if it weren't for this. When I finally managed to shake it off I heard what sounded like chaos outside - all the car alarms in the whole parking lot, several sirens and what sounded like a fire engine, all blaring loudly for 30 maybe 45 seconds.

The clock on my cable box said 7:23. First thing I did was try to call my mom back but the phone was dead for 10 minutes or so.

At her advice about an hour later I called the local fire department and inquired about the alarms but got some BS answer- a "system alarm test."

Also I found some neighbors who heard everything at that precise time, but no one saw anything.

I had several other related paranormal experiences that summer, but I'm done typing about this.

As I re-read this I realize there's several details I'm leaving out, but I'll always remember that day quite well.

I feel MUFON is a trusted organization so please feel free to contact me if you'd like to know more.

Thank you,

This case is under investigation by Bill Stephenson of MUFON New Jersey. Bill has been involved in a few high profile abduction cases for MUFON in New Jersey.

ARGENTINA: September’s Stunning Close Encounter
Alien Abductee
Published: Date: 10.15.10

Inexplicata - The Journal of Hispanic Ufology

By Quique Mario, CEUFO

A new close encounter of the third kind (CE-3) took place in the afternoon of 20 September at a community 80 km distant from the city of Santa Rosa, capital city of La Pampa province.

The protagonist of the strange episode is the same one who was vistied by a strange being a few months ago. The intruder left a series of burns on her arms after having made contact with one of her extremities.

This shocking incident was made known to the Centro de Estudios UFO as it was in the past, and only a few hours after, a member of the group arrived on the scene to commence his field study, ascertaining that aside from the marks on the experiencer’s face, it was possible to find marks in the back yard that resembled very large feet.

The woman was aided by her relatives, who contacted our center. Research kicked off with a test aimed at determining several of the experiencer’s physical and psychological aspects, whose results shall be made known in coming weeks.


It should be remembered that this woman has “suffered” experiences of this kind on several occasions, the first of them as she went about her chores in a farm in November 2008; the second in October 2009; the third in March 2010 and the last one in September 2010.

Entity Characteristics

The outstanding characteristics of the strange being described by the witnesses are the following: a height estimated at 2 meters. Very thin body with long extremities. Gave the impression of being very frail, but was extraordinarily strong on occasions in which physical contact was made. Has no ears.

The eye cavity apperas hollow, but the reddish light within them, “as though from a little light”, stands out.

The nose is imperceptible or else flattened “like an ape’s” and the mouth is an almost imperceptible slit on the ski.

The witness was shocked by what appeared to be the entity’s suit or skin, which she defined as “wrinked” or “like fish scales”.

Its hands were large, but the most significant aspect were its large, rounded fingers. Regarding feet, which she was able to notice in the latest experience, “they were large and as if in three parts” although she cannot define if it was footwear. The color of the skin or suit is dark, either grey or greenish.


The being appeared within the home shortly after 20:15 hours. How it entered is unknown, as the doors were shut. She claims that she felt the sensation that [the entity] was not alone, as it looked and made sounds as though there were something behind it, but she was unable to see if this was the case. The witness recacted saying: “nooooo, not again, noooo” and the being took hold of her face in a firm, decisive manner.

This resulted in some dark marks on her cheekbones that were visible in photographs. It was thus that she felt the great strength of its extremities.

The protagonist’s son was one of the first to come to her assistance. He says that he heard a strange buzzing sound, similar to a very sharp “beep”. The experience lasted only a few minutes, after which the woman calmed down and retold her experience. The young man contacted CEUFO and took the photo of the strange print in the back yard of the house. We shall provide further information on this research in future updates.

The Black Vault

The Frederick Valentich Disappearance
Frederick Valentich
Published: October - 7 - 2010

Posted by jupitar

October, 1978, was one of the most concentrated periods of UFO sightings in Australian History.

The Frederick Valentich Encounter took place at this time and there were many witnesses to confirm the aspects of these events.

At 6.19 in the evening, Frederick Valentich flew his single-seater, Cessna 182 (designation DSJ) from Moorabbin Airport in Melbourne to King Island. He was in radio contact with the ground, and at 7.06 pm, he radioed an enquiry which was to be the start of a very extraordinary story.

He said, “Melbourne, this is Delta Sierra Juliet. Is there any known traffic below five thousand?”

Melbourne Flight Service reported that they had nothing on the radar.

Valentich reported a large aircraft with four bright lights, and a few seconds later he reported that the object had passed over him, “at least a thousand feet above”.

The object stayed in the vicinity of the DSJ, and at 7.08 pm Valentich reported:

“He’s playing some kind of game, he’s flying over me…”

At 7.09 pm Valentich reported, “It’s bot an aircraft, it is… a long shape…”

Shortly afterwards he reported that the object was relatively stationary above him; He then described it as “… sort of metallic… all shiny on the outside, and with a green light.”

At 7.11 pm Valentich made the first report of his aircraft of “rough idling,” and “coughing,” it appeared that the UFO was affecting the plane’s performance.

(Many people who have encountered UFOs have reported that their engines cut-out whilst in the vicinity of them)

At 7.12 pm, Valentich gave his call sign, and there was an open microphone for seventeen seconds, and then strange, “metallic” sounds.

Frederick Valentich has never been seen or heard of again.

There were many theories to what could have happened to him.

There were many speculations of an “Alien Abduction.”

Some believed that a very rare and unclassified energy had caused his disappearance, such as a ‘meterological phenomenon.’

It took just six minutes for these events to unfold, and lead to the disappearance of Frederick Valentich.

His disappearance is still an unsolved mystery.

Unknown Object Photographed over Granbury, TX
Texas UFO Photograph
Published: 11:01 AM 10/01/2010

Texas - 06-22-10

6-22-10 (9:35 PM): Just like the last time I witnessed strange lights, I was traveling home from Granbury, but this time I had my two sons with me.

As we reached the top of a hill on FM 56, I noticed a very bright, slow moving, circular/round object in the Northern sky. Due to this road being very dangerous without any safe areas to pullover, I decided to travel to a known location where I could overlook the field of interest where these lights seemed to be orbiting.

As I was traveling to this area, each hilltop allowed me to take a quick glance to my right and see this object still illuminating.

It took me nearly 5 minutes to reach my "lookout point" on Star Hollow Rd and W.D. Ct in Lipan.

When I reached this point I noticed it was very dim, but after a few minutes the same bright light reappeared fully. It was moving west from the Weatherford area toward the Mineral Wells area.

From my position the craft was operating 25-30 degrees above the horizon.

Weatherford is 25 miles from this position and the light was near the 20 mile mark from me. Of course, this is all based on an educated guess, using an aeronautical sectional map and some simple mathematics.

My two sons were so intrigued with the experience we all were sharing and even the 10-year-old said to me, "That's not normal."

I agreed, and at that point decided I better grab some pictures with my SLR camera before this one gets away. I had time to take one picture before it disappeared.

Unknown Object Seen over Granbury, Texas
UFO Depiction
Published: 5:00 AM 10/9/2010

Granbury, TX - October, 2010

I must say I saw something last night over Granbury, TX, @ 8:41 PM, near Arlington, Texas.

The direction it was going was northwest to south. It was a clear sky, not a cloud anywhere.

To me it was like looking at a boat from under the water - the V the boat makes when cutting through the water. The V looked like rumbling, thin clouds.

One side was long, the other side was shorter. It went so fast there would had been no way to catch it on video.

I went inside to bring another person out to see if it would happen again, but it didn't. Exactly one hour later something did happen again.

This time it was twinkling. I had no idea what time it was. I ran inside to say it had come back.

I went out at 10:41 PM, and didn't see it again. What I saw was not a remote control airplane. It was there and gone in seconds. The first time it seemed low.

It happened so fast I'm not sure if it blocked the stars out or not. The second time it was much higher in the sky.

I was too fast to even think about a description. I was surprised to see people in Arlington saw something too. I wish they would have said what time.

What they have on video is what I saw, but only in a cloud formation. Rolling wavy V. What is going on?

State of the Wave: ETs Surge to Center Stage
UFO Depiction
Published: 5:10 PM 10/15/2010

Published by Dr. Bruce Cordell

In the 1950s this might have been called a UFO “Wave”, but today it just appears that interest in extraterrestrials – some of whom might even be coming here – is the rage from China to London and of course to Hollywood.

Does our growing global fascination with extraterrestrials suggest the new international Space Age is just around the corner?

A Chinese Astronomer Says Yes

Wang Sichao, a veteran astronomer of the Purple Mountain Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said flat out in August that “extraterrestrial beings do exist and their UFOs have the ability to visit our earth,” (Peoples’ Daily Online, 8/23/10). His statements are as unequivocal as former Apollo Moon-walking astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who has claimed for years that “…we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real… It has been covered up by governments for quite some time now,” (7/28/2008, ABC News).

However, Wang believes that Stephen Hawking’s recent warnings that their arrival would be a bad day for humanity are premature.

“If they are friendly to us, we can promote the human beings’ civilization through exchange and cooperation with them. If they are not, as long as we prepared for their invasion, we can beat them back based on their weaknesses. After all, they are life entities, they would show their slips,”

Obviously the professor is an optimist. Anyone with the technology to travel across interstellar distances could also make us wish they hadn’t. The classic Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man” comes to mind!

Wang’s public statements come in the wake of 8 reported UFO sightings in China since June. For example, last month an airport in Inner Mongolia was shut down for over an hour because a UFO — reportedly seen both visually and on radar — was buzzing the field.

Unknowns Lurk Everywhere

UFO sightings are not limited to China — they appear almost everywhere. A quick scan of the Mutual UFO Network website, a 40+-year-old, science-based organization, indicates that current aerial unknowns range from a silent boomerang in Boise to agile cigars in Australia.

Over the last 100+ years, a global surge in UFO/ET interest has presaged and figured prominently in each transformative Maslow Window.

For example, the ultra-ebullient Peary/Panama/T. Rosevelt Maslow Window (~1901-13) followed the founding of Lowell Observatory in Arizona to probe the “canals” on Mars. Lowell saw the canals as convincing evidence for a global Macro Engineering Project built by intelligent Martians. His public loved it and in 1907 the Wall Street Journal actually announced “…the proof by astronomical observations…that conscious, intelligent human life exists upon the planet Mars,”

Likewise, early in the 1960s Apollo Maslow Window, astronomer Frank Drake inaugurated the famous Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) using a radio telescope in West Virginia. Later he and Carl Sagan ebulliently asserted that a million advanced civilizations might exist in our galaxy, and in 2010 Drake reiterated his ebullient belief that it’s “only a matter of time” before we detect them.

Before aligning exclusively with radio SETI, Sagan wrote a stunning, but currently obscure scientific paper (in 1962) in which he argued that advanced ETs had already visited Earth using interstellar spacecraft aided by relativistic time dilation.

If this century-plus pattern holds, we should expect global interest in ETs, UFOs, Earth-like planets, and human expansion into the cosmos to accelerate as we approach the new international Space Age around 2015.

Is Life Abundant in the Galaxy?

It’s not just UFOs that are grabbing the global public, it’s anything to do with extraterrestrials. For example, Chandra Wickramasinghe, Director of the Cardiff Centre for Astrobiology, flatly asserts that current astrophysical research “overwhelmingly” supports his theory that human life started outside of Earth; i.e., that all humans are, in fact, “aliens from outer space.”

In his recent article in the International Journal of Astrobiology, Wickramasinghe argues that the spectral signatures of interstellar dust clouds are due to “biologically derived aromatic molecules.” Thus major components of interstellar materials are actually “… degradation products of biology,” suggesting life is not rare in our galaxy.

The Royal Society Seeks Extraterrestrials

Not to be left out — following scientific meetings in 2009 at the Vatican on Extraterrestrials — the prestigious UK Royal Society has had not just one, but 2 scientific meetings in 2010 (in January and just last week) to consider if exterrestrials are here on Earth and how to properly greet them.

At the Royal Society, Professor Paul Davies of Arizona State University suggested that, contrary to the approach of radio SETI, “We need to give up the notion that ET is sending us some sort of customised message and take a new approach.”

This flurry of ET-related scientific meetings, astrophysical research, and UFO sightings occurs in the context of the exciting recent discovery of the first extrasolar planet with the potential to be genuinely Earth-like. It orbits the red dwarf star Gliese 581 and is nearby — only 20 light years away. If advanced Gliesan’s ever existed, they should be here by now.

What if ET Really Phones Home?

And finally, to complete the pop culture scene, the new movie Skyline opens November 12. It features UFOs and extraterrestrials on Earth and a Rapture-like scene that’s unforgettable. As in the 1960s Space Age, cinema is likely to play a major role in the 2015 Maslow Window.

Archived Case of the Week

1978 - UFO Lands on Farm in Missouri
UFO Depiction
Published: 6:26 PM 10/1/2006

Oct. 8, 1978, Jenkins, MO - 7:00 AM

A farming family noted an unusual object in a field to the south of their house. The object was 185 feet from the house and at that distance, difficult to see.

It appeared as a white object of moderate size, but was felt to be probably a large piece of paper blown there over the previous evening. The family did not go over to inspect it at that time.

The six family members [5 adults and a teenager] stole occasional glances in its direction over the next two hours, but nothing moved.

Then, at 9 am, the farm owner left the house to do some chores. At that moment, the object rapidly rose from the ground to a height of 30 to 50 feet. Everyone else ran out of the house to watch.

It began moving slowly and silently to the west, ascended rapidly, turned twice, and gradually flew away.

The witnesses noted that a second larger and more distant object seemed also to be in the sky. These objects came into close approximation and moved off together.

The landed object was described as an oval or egg shape appearing white on the ground but more silvery, reflective once airborne. Its size was judged to be 4-5 feet in the longer dimension, and 3-4 feet in the shorter.

One area of the surface was darker in tone, and allowed the witnesses to note that it was rotating at about once per two seconds rate. The witnesses immediately called the sheriff's department.

A deputy arrived in the afternoon and went to the landing site, took pictures, as well as soil samples. There was a noticeable trace which measured 4 1/2 feet long and 3 1/2 feet wide.

The character of the trace was described as depressed, not burnt nor dried. Soil moisture was normal. The force bearing down on the ground was not great as measured by penetrometer tests.

No radioactive heightened readings were measured either. [We owe all these tests to the field's trace expert, Ted Phillips.]

As time went on though, there was some easily noticeable deterioration of the grass, selectively within the trace. The only slightly reasonable alternate hypothesis that Phillips and CUFOS were able to come up with, was something involving a weather balloon.

Some effort was made to check for such launches but the only known source was in the entirely wrong wind direction. The fast take-off speed is also against this theory among several other things one might mention.

One other note, when the farmer arrived at the scene he said that the grass at the site was very noticeably swirled. This case was also reported in the MUFON Journal where there were a few discrepancies.

MUFON reports the trace as a tripod of depressed spots within an area of depressed and swirled grass. At one point in the article the trace is described as "burnt" but more reading seems to indicate that "discolored" might be a better word.

"Like a spot which has been over-fertilized".

Testing by MUFON at a college laboratory showed no unusual chemicals or volatile organics, such as solvents. It was found by MUFON that that farmer had previously recovered one of the weather balloons from the local service and knew perfectly well what they looked like.

CUFOS' and MUFON's reports agree on almost all details, and the trace as described by MUFON is probably the better detail. As an aside, the witnesses describe their cows and a "local" meandering coyote as merely staring at the object and not agitated in any way.
