Being called UFO Insight, the website wouldn’t be complete without the UFO section. This is where our main stories live. Written by industry experts and enthusiasts, these articles really provide detailed insight behind many UFO stories and incidents.
In this section we provide analysis, discussion and insight into many well know UFO cases and stories. We also sometimes write about conspiracies surrounding the UFO topics. This section is well worth bookmarking and will always be updated regularly with new articles.
Iceland is perhaps one of the most mysterious and enchanting places on the planet. Maybe no surprise then that the country has more legends, folklore and UFO connections than you can shake a padded winter coat at.
It also provides Western powers, and more specifically the United States, with key locations for military bases. Particularly throughout the Cold War. On many occasions, American fighter jets would scramble from these bases pursuing unknown aircraft, thought to be Soviet planes. These chases would go as far down as the east coast of the United Kingdom. Most of these scrambles would result in UFO sightings and encounters, some of which would remain hidden for [...]
For its size, Scotland has more UFO sightings than almost any other country in the world. A great many of these hundreds of yearly sightings, take place in an area known as the Falkirk Triangle.
The region lies between Falkirk and Bonnybridge to the east and west respectively, and Stirling to the north. The reports are as strange as they are varied, but they are certainly consistent. Reports of orbs, light, strange objects and even “spaceships landing” on the ground are all on record. Even claims of portals, ancient stargates and wormholes had been subject to extensive investigation.
For years the official British stance on UFOs was there wasn’t one! Much like the United States and other nations, the Ministry of Defense would claim there was nothing to investigate. Of course, we know now that was far from the truth. Not only were the MoD very much interested in UFOs, they were actively investigating and cataloging them.
If not for persistent researchers and whistleblowers, many of the early UK UFO cases might have become lost to history. And who knows how many might have already slipped through the net or are awaiting discovery?
While UFO sightings and accounts have undoubtedly happened for [...]
The UFO sighting from the rooftop of the Place Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Montreal in 1990 is one of many strange aerial sightings in this part of Canada. On that particular evening, dozens of people would witness the object. These would include journalists, television reporters, police officers, and RCMP officials.
Given both the amount and credibility of the witnesses, as well as photographic evidence of the object’s presence, the incident is largely seen as one of the most credible and important sightings not only in Canadian history but arguably all of ufology. Perhaps no surprise then that the files concerning the case [...]
The events of 23rd January 1974 over the Berwyn Mountains in Wales were nothing more than an earthquake, that just happened to coincide with a meteorite landing at the same spot as the epicenter – at least according to the military. To anyone who is local to Llandrillo, there was no doubt a UFO crash occurred and the military covered up.
UFO researchers and investigators would treat local people’s claims seriously. When declassified documents finally found their way into the public domain in the early 2000s, it would seem that they were correct.
The incident is even more remarkable in terms of how it fits with other [...]
The 1982 Ota Airbase incident over the skies of Portugal would result in three experienced Airforce pilots coming face to face with a UFO. As opposed to covering up the incident, however, the Portuguese Air Force Chief of Staff would take the unusual decision to release all files to UFO investigators in an effort to clarify events. His reason for doing this is perhaps as interesting as the events themselves.
There are UFO sightings all over Portugal, as there are in any other country. However, the area around Ota Air Force Base appears to have a cluster of such sightings over the [...]
According to the late Tony Dodd, for a long time the UK’s leading UFO researcher and investigator, the Kalahari Incident of 1989 is as important as the Roswell crash that happened forty years previously to it.
What is even more bizarre about the incident, or more to the point, how knowledge of it came to the public, is that the initial documents were very obviously forgeries. Something would make Dodd look into the alleged incident, however, despite this. This would prove to be a decision that would change his life – not always for the better.
According to the leaked [...]
Starting in the early-1980s, the residents of the Hudson Valley area of New York would begin seeing strange aerial sights. The bulk, or first wave, of these strange sightings, occurred between 1981 and 1994. All were startlingly similar in nature. Multiple lights would be seen in the sky, usually moving into formation. Sometimes the lights would move through the sky as if they were all part of one craft. What would also make these particular sightings all the more unique is the multiple witnesses to these events.
Although the sightings died down somewhat in the mid-nineties, there are still reports of such [...]
The strange tale of Lieutenant Tom Preston is perhaps all the more mysterious as Tom Preston is a false name. According to UFO research and author, Walter N. Webb, who would take the account in 1984, Preston still felt the need to protect his identity despite the events he would speak of taking place over two decades earlier in 1963.
Furthermore, as these reports, and many like them, came to light as whistle-blowers volunteered information and government files became declassified, possible links began to suggest themselves to other such cases. Indeed, isolated instances began to look more and more like a bigger picture that requires solving.
In the early hours of 3rd September 1965, numerous witnesses would make reports of strange activity in the skies of Exeter, New Hampshire. Even the police officer at the scene of one of the sightings would see for himself the strange craft. As would another several moments later, and a respected journalist after him.
Repeated requests for assistance and information regarding the strange craft made to the military went virtually unanswered, save for an eventual and much-delayed response stating the activity was nothing more than “natural aerial phenomena!”
Investigations that would follow however would suggest [...]
Described as one of the “most important UFO cases in the history of ufology” by the researcher, Bob Pratt, the events of 29th December 1980 in the small Texas town of Huffman remain unsolved. Furthermore, the incident screamed of government involvement of some kind – of which, Pratt would state while investigating that “someone in the US knows exactly what happened!”
The injuries sustained by all the three people involved were so severe, they would continue in ill health. No satisfactory answer is available for those involved in the Piney Woods Incident. And barring a leak or whistle-blower coming forward, it is likely to stay that way.
As New York and the entire northeast of the United States, quickly followed by southern states in Canada, were plunged into darkness in November 1965, it would prove to be the first of many mysterious “blackouts” that would stretch into the following year.
The one thing that appeared to connect these massive power failures was the appearance of strange objects in the area. They would usually hover over, or near power plants. While authorities, as you might expect, were quick to dispel any notion of alien interest in the Earth’s energy supplies, many other people would push for further study.
What’s more, many people believe [...]
It is pretty well established that the Nazis had a fascination with the occult and extra-terrestrial technology. The fact that they were so far ahead has made many researchers ponder if they might have had such access. There are certainly many top secret Nazi programs greatly ahead of their time.
There is even a possible connection between one of the most secretive Nazi projects, and a mysterious UFO crash in an otherwise sleepy town in the United States some two decades later? The Kecksburg UFO crash is officially “nothing” according to investigations, despite a wealth of witnesses. It was largely lost to time, until the release of a book on a secret Nazi project in [...]
Police would treat Robert Taylor’s report regarding his apparent out-of-this-world encounter as a case of criminal assault. This would make the incident the only UFO or alien abduction case to be part of a criminal investigation.
It is highly probable that one of Scotland’s most famous UFO encounters sometimes referred to as the “Dechmont Woods Encounter”, involved the alien abduction of Taylor.
Many have undertaken investigations into the events of 9th November 1979 near Livingston. All agree Taylor himself is a very solid and credible witness. Essentially, most people believe him to be telling the truth entirely. Perhaps the fact that Scotland has more than [...]
In November 1986, a report of one of the most credible UFO sightings became headline news around the world. Bound for Paris from Tokyo, Japanese Airlines Flight 1628 found itself at the center of the media frenzy. Not least because the flight’s captain opted to speak openly about the experience instead of downplaying it as JAL wished.
Perhaps the fact the sighting came from experienced pilots and commercial flight staff, who spend a good portion of their lives quite literally in the air, gives it, and other similar sightings, a little more credibility. In this particular incident maybe the pilot’s insistence that his story is heard, even though it ultimately cost him [...]
