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.
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 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 north east 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 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 2000.
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 centre 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 be heard, even though it ultimately cost him [...]
An incident that first saw the light of day on the BBC’s “Newsround” – a children’s news and current affairs show – the Broad Haven UFO sightings soon made progress on to national news. Even international news stations took an interest in the incident for a time.
When the story finally did reach the masses, it was just the tip of the iceberg of a rash of sightings and incidents that would engulf Wales in the late 1970s. Bright, shiny crafts landing in fields, both in the middle of the night and broad daylight! Not to mention various reports of silver-attired humanoid figures, “faceless” no less!
Widely regarded as one of the more credible UFO encounters, the events of December 1980 in Suffolk, England also played out before multiple witnesses. Nicknamed “Britain’s Roswell”, the incident is one of the more well-known of its kind in the world, and appears to be one that still has secrets to divulge.
Respected UFO researcher, Nick Pope, who himself worked for the Ministry of Defense investigating UFO claims for several years, and has undergone a comprehensive “cold case review” of the incident, stated, “This was not some vague lights in the sky sighting – the UFO actually landed!”
The 2014 film, “The Rendlesham UFO Incident” – a found footage style movie [...]
While tending to the sheep on the family farm in Delphos, Kansas, sixteen year old Ronnie Johnson replied to his mother’s call to come in for dinner, assuring he would be home very shortly. It was just before 7pm on a quiet evening on 2nd November 1971.
A low rumbling sound suddenly burst out of the dark night sky, followed by an intense display of bright, multi-coloured lights. They were emanating from a mushroom shaped object that was slowly making its way over the Johnson’s land, only several feet from the ground.
The craft measured approximately nine feet in width and ten feet in height. Ronnie would later remember that the low rumbling sound reminded him of a [...]
Many documentaries have been made on it, countless movies have been based on it – even Steven Spielberg satirised it – and thousands of people witnessed the actual events unfold before their eyes. The “Battle of Los Angeles” (sometimes referred to as “The Great Los Angeles Air Raid”) took place over the City of Angeles in the early hours of 25th February 1942, but we still don’t know the full truth behind the explosive events.
The incident happened while the Pearl Harbour attacks of December 1941 were still very fresh in people’s minds – particularly on the west coast of the United States. To say the country was “jumpy” would have been a huge understatement. As war raged in [...]
While most people – believers and sceptics alike – almost certainly imagine space travel and aliens when they hear the term UFO, there are many other theories on offer. Might these strange sightings be of time-travellers for example instead of aliens? Might they be nothing more than “phantom” sightings – some type of “rip” in space time that allows us to peek into the future or the distant past?
One particularly interesting alternative theory is that what we are actually witnessing are visitations from another dimension, as opposed to from another planet.
In June 2016 a story appeared online that appeared to [...]
While most people who witness a UFO, even those who claim to have been abducted, live to tell their tales, others are not so lucky. For some, the seemingly out of this world encounter appeared to have killed them – either at the scene of the sighting or in the immediate hours or days following.
These deaths are referred to as close encounters of the sixth kind. And there are more than you might think.
Zigmund Adamski for example was found dead in June 1980 on top of a large pile of coal in Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, having been missing for five days. There were no coal marks on his clothes – as if he had been placed on the coal pile from above – and there [...]
If you have seen the film, “Cowboys and Aliens” then the idea of spacecraft in the Wild West will not be so, well, alien to you. Although the film, as enjoyable as it is, is one-hundred percent fiction, there are numerous accounts of UFO and alien encounters in the tentative years of the United States.
Although most people credit the term “flying saucer” with an account given by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 for example, in 1878 in Denison, Texas, farmer John Martin witnessed a strange object flying over his land, and made a report to Denison Daily News on 25th January 1878.
While out hunting, Martin noticed a dark object in the sky. The strange shape and the speed with which [...]
Over the years, we’ve come across some rather interesting theories and ideas. From discussion about famous film creatures perhaps being real to looking at the validity of UFO stories, we’ve read a lot. However, one theme that recently kept creeping up in our readings that we had no knowledge of was something known as “Angel Hair”.
This is an interesting topic, but one we see glimpses of in the more advanced UFO groups. It’s not something we see used regularly. If you have heard the term before, but don’t know what it is, or would like to know, then keep reading on.
We’ll be breaking down the main reasons for the potential existence of this mysterious substance. We’ll [...]
