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.
While just about everyone in the western world is aware of the Roswell incident. And most of us have a view as to what we think about the authenticity of the reports from the US military and witnesses alike.
However, an incident that took place less than six months after the infamous crash, while relatively well-known in UFO circles, is almost unknown outside of them. What’s more, the encounter would involve the recovery of both the craft and the alien beings and would take place in a part of the United States that experiences UFO sightings more than many other areas of the country.
The origins of the [...]
While some are more authentic than others no doubt, UFO sightings happen all over the world, every single day of the year. However, beginning in late summer 2017, reports of such sightings on the east coast of the United Kingdom surged.
What’s more, rather than just the story of one or two excited witnesses, an encounter in the same area from 2009, one of a military presence, perhaps even involvement, would begin to intertwine within the recent spate of sightings. That particular incident – which we will look at shortly – was the culmination of a wave of reports in the area. After a relative “quiet” period in terms of UFO sightings, as we plow through 2017, the “unseen” [...]
Of the many files released by the CIA, the one bearing the title “Flying Saucers In East Germany” from 9th July 1952 is one of the most interesting. The account would find its way to the CIA from a Greek newspaper after the main witness, Oscar Linke would testify of his claims before a judge.
The fact that such CIA files exist, and have done since as far back as the 1940s and 50s, should show the interest governments around the world had in such matters, despite their insistence to the contrary. Taking such intelligence reports from “open sources” such as foreign or international newspapers is more commonplace than many might think.
The strange encounter that twenty-seven-year-old, Kelly Cahill and her family would experience, while driving home through the otherwise pleasant foothills of the Mount Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia, would be one of strange crafts and terrifying “soulless” beings.
Time would eventually unlock Kelly’s memories and reveal an ordeal unlike any she might have previously imagined. Far from believable, her account would bring forward other witnesses, corroborating her version of events. Like most claims and encounters of this nature, opinion remains divided as to the authenticity of the account.
What is interesting about this particular case, however, is [...]
We recently looked at the strange experience of Marius Dewilde in our article concerning paralysis at UFO sightings. In truth, that incident was just one of a plethora of sightings over France in general, which in turn were part of a worldwide surge of sightings. Although over half the reported sightings in 1954 would occur in and around Europe, sightings around the world were up in general, with all incidents globally seeming to peak in October of that year.
Reports of huge spaceships firing laser beams and landing were aplenty. Some encounters would even speak of “strange humanoid creatures” who, on occasion, would temporarily paralyze local residents. While there [...]
Largely due to the fact that they simply didn’t know what to make of the initial report from local Plymouth DJ, John Greenwood, concerning his girlfriend’s sister’s strange encounter, did the case of Denise Bishop land straight in the hands of the Devon UFO Research Group chairman, Robert Boyd. Boyd, one of the UK’s leading UFO investigators, would, in turn, rescue the incident from falling into obscurity. As a further consequence, important details would come from Denise Bishop that others might not have thought to note.
What’s more, many of the details of the Bishop case mirror those in other UFO encounters from around the world. [...]
The Galicia area of Spain is largely a quiet, relaxed part of Europe. In the winter of 1995 and into the new year of 1996, that would change dramatically as the area was subject to a string of UFO sightings. These sightings, preserved on film by military security cameras, as well as witnessed by multiple residents of the area, were of genuine concern to the Spanish authorities. As was the attention these bizarre activities would generate. Reports of glowing craft and even of “humanoid beings” would for a time, attract the focus of the media and UFO interest groups alike.
Interestingly, when the Spanish [...]
The sightings of strange lights over the small town of Stephenville, Texas, in January 2008 – witnessed by multiple people – is largely considered one of the biggest sightings of the early twenty-first century.
Perhaps further adding to the credibility of the incident, was how various government agencies would respond. They would “stonewall” attempts by groups such as MUFON to determine just what dozens of people had seen that evening.
The state of Texas is no stranger to UFO sightings and bizarre lights in the sky. And what’s more, these accounts date back to the late-1800s. Might this latest mass [...]
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 [...]
