Florida Everglades UFO

The James Flynn Incident – UFO Over The Florida Everglades

September 10, 2018 8:42 pm

A hunting trip with his four dogs in the Florida Everglades by experienced woodsman, James Flynn in March 1965 would result in a close encounter that would leave physical consequences for the rest of his life, including being legally blind in one eye. While there is debate as to whether the craft Flynn witnessed was extraterrestrial in nature or a clandestine military project, there is little doubt that he witnessed something very real in the cut-off environment of the Everglades. At the time, Flynn firmly believed the craft was “some…

Michigan UFO 1965

Michigan, 1966 – The “Swamp Gas” Incidents

September 8, 2018 5:32 pm 2 comments

In March 1966 a wave of UFO sightings would hit the Ann Arbor region of Michigan causing the eyes of the entire country to turn their attention to the Wolverine State. One particular incident over the swamplands of a family-run farm would prove to be the most detailed of all the sightings on record. And certainly, the one with the closest proximity between the witness and the apparent craft from elsewhere in the cosmos. The incidents, while perhaps being some of the most credible and multi-witnessed events on record, would…

Buck County UFO

The 2008 UFO Wave Of Bucks County, Pennsylvania

August 30, 2018 6:47 pm

Sitting around thirty miles north of Philadelphia, Bucks County is one of the most affluent and typically “successful” American urban residential areas of Pennsylvania. Beginning in early 2008, however, and stretching well into the summer, sighting after sighting of UFOs and strange lights would emerge from the skies over this otherwise quiet and sprawling suburb. Perhaps one of the strangest of the hundreds of sightings on record is that of Cliff Taylor, who would have not one but two experiences to tell of. What makes Taylor’s sightings unique is that…

Isla De Lobos UFO

The Isla De Lobos Lighthouse Incident

August 24, 2018 6:06 pm

In October 1972 on the Isla De Lobos, a small island off the coast of Uruguay, situated where the River Plate and the Atlantic Ocean meet, one of the most intricately investigated close encounters in Uruguayan UFO history would unfold. The island is all but deserted save for a lighthouse which the Uruguayan navy maintain. It was during one such maintenance mission that a young corporal’s life was changed forever. We recently looked at the 1950 encounter of Bruno Facchini and declared how many of the details that at first…

Paraguay River UFO

The Paraguay River Encounter – First UFO Sighting In 1846 Brazil?

August 22, 2018 7:04 pm

It might be easy to overlook the apparent mid-nineteenth century UFO encounter that appeared in the 26th November 1846 edition of the ‘Official Gazette of the Empire of Brazil” newspaper, had it not also been logged in the official files of Brazil’s UFO encounters. The incident was uncovered by UFO researcher, Antonio Huneeus, while searching the Brazilian government’s official documents, who in turn discovered a 1940s article by Edison Boaventura Junior. Perhaps part of the reason the encounter enjoyed such widespread attention at the time (and since) was the main…

UFO Malvern

The Malvern Sighting, And The Late-1970s UK UFO Wave

August 16, 2018 6:29 pm

In the late-1970s, particularly 1978, the United Kingdom, like many other parts of the world, experienced a surge of UFO sightings. Many of these would even result in claims of alien abduction, all of which were surprising in their similarity. While many other sightings were just that, sightings of strange lights or aerial objects, they still offer further evidence that “something” out of the ordinary was in the skies over the UK during this time. One perhaps can only imagine how many more sightings might be on record if the…

Manchester UFO Sightings

The Recently Persistent UFO Sightings Over Manchester, England

August 13, 2018 5:29 pm

Admittedly Manchester, England isn’t the first place that comes to mind when discussing UFO hotspots or waves of strange sightings. However, in recent years, many strange encounters have been made in the skies over the city. And it would appear these incidents are actually increasing. While no doubt many of them, upon investigation, will prove to have explanations of a reasonable, if mundane nature, some will prove to be much more elusive in isolating just what these strange objects are. One particular sighting in the summer of 2011 over the…

Trancas UFO

The Trancas Incident – UFO Encounter In The Argentine Countryside

August 10, 2018 4:05 pm 2 comments

Argentina and the South American continent, in general, is a part of the world bursting with paranormal activity. And this very much includes UFO and alien encounters. One of the most well-documented of these is an incident that took place in the small town of Trancas in the north of the country in October 1963. An incident that would see three young women witness a strange craft at extremely close range. As well as being one of the most well-known UFO cases, it is regarded by many investigators to be one of…

Schoolyard UFO

The Crestview Elementary School UFO Incident

August 6, 2018 5:38 pm 3 comments

Although it generated some state media attention at the time, the UFO sighting over Crestview Elementary School in April 1967, an incident with hundreds of witnesses, was largely forgotten about until the Internet provided a platform for it in the early 2000s. Many of the witnesses were young children at the time. Now, in the twenty-first century and as adults, the event is still clear in many of their minds. In fact, what perhaps makes this incident even more intriguing, is the very fact that the witnesses were so young…

Lake Erie UFO

The Baker Family UFO Encounter Over Lake Erie

August 2, 2018 5:00 pm

Although figures vary between different UFO organizations and groups, just under half of all UFO sightings take place near to a significant body of water. This statistic alone creates many theories as to why this might be. Some believe “alien bases” reside deep down at the depths of the Earth’s oceans, seas, and lakes. Others speculate that these cosmic crafts use the underwater world as a way to traverse the planet. Some even go as far as to suggest that “portals or gateways” may exist, or be created under the…

A5 UFO Sighting

The A5 UFO Encounters Of Diane Foulkes

August 1, 2018 4:12 pm

While in her early twenties in the mid-1960s, typist Diane Foulkes would witness two UFO sightings. Each occurred as she drove along the A5 near her home in Shrewsbury, Shropshire in the United Kingdom. What’s more, as would come to light later, another local resident had similar encounters at the very same spot. The area of these bizarre and mysterious events on the A5 is only (relatively speaking) a stone’s throw away from RAF Cosford, the site of one of the most well-known and most credible UFO encounters in UK…

Lakenheath Radar UFO

The Lakenheath UFO Chase Incident

July 26, 2018 10:11 pm

On the evening of the 13th going into the 14th August 1956, one of the most well-documented and military-radar-confirmed UFO encounters took place in the skies over eastern England. As well as being tracked on three separate ground radar systems, further confirmation came from an airborne radar. And further still, visual sightings came from two pilots in separate planes, as well as from multiple personnel from two different control towers. As well as the amount of military documentation of the incident, the fact that it stretched between US and UK…

Bexleyheath UFO

The Bexleyheath UFO Landing

July 25, 2018 5:19 pm

In the early-to-mid-1950s, UFO sightings, much like in the United States, were increasingly common in the UK. Even incidents of landings and humanoid encounters were relatively rife. Although officially, there was no governing body investigating these reports, we know from our article looking at Room 801 that this wasn’t the case. In fact, to some, the sudden decline in sightings as the fifties bowed out to the sixties, and more specifically how the media would treat them (if at all) was suspicious. Writing in ‘Flying Saucer Review’ in 1960, journalist…

Berlin Wall UFO

The Greifswald Lights Incident – A Last Sighting Of The Cold War?

July 19, 2018 7:49 pm

In late-August 1990, only weeks before the official unification of East and West Germany following the fall of the Soviet Union and the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, came a sighting over Greifswald, a city in the former East German territories near the Baltic Sea. The lights had, in fact, been appearing since the first days in August, usually hovering over the waters of the Baltic. These lights would suddenly display movement not of any known aircraft. They turned with a razor-sharp precision and their speed was much faster…

China Airport UFO

The China Airport Sighting – Just One In China’s Long UFO History

July 16, 2018 6:32 pm

In July 2010 a UFO sighting over Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in China proved to be so intense that it forced the facility to temporarily close down. While the incident received a lot of online exposure, it is just one of many UFO sightings dating back as far as recorded Chinese history. We have written before, for example, of the mysteries of the Yellow Emperor, Huang-Di. The entire history of this enigmatic culture, however, is littered with strange appearances from above. Before we look at the more recent sightings, in…
