The 1952 Pearl Harbor Close Encounter

December 8, 2018 12:52 pm

In May 1952, an experienced and respected Canadian Naval officer witnessed dozens of strange lights as well as a flying silver disc near Pearl Harbor off the coast of Hawaii. Although he was a Lieutenant at the time, the witness, George MacFarlane would go on to reach Commander status. To say, then, he is a reliable witness is a relatively safe assumption. As we will explore throughout the following, his subsequent actions would seemingly further cement his credibility. What makes this account even more interesting is the destination of the…

The 1986 “Height 611” Dalnegorsk UFO Crash

December 3, 2018 6:28 pm 1 comment

The small mining town of Dalnegorsk in the Primorsky Krai region of south-eastern Russia, bordered by China, North Korea, and the Sea of Japan, resides in a serene and picturesque valley within equally picturesque hills and woodland near the Rudnaya River. However, in late-January 1986 that serenity was broken by an apparent UFO crash. And then, the intense rush of media attention on the area that would follow. Hundreds of people would witness the events. And aside from the media interest, many Soviet UFO researchers would risk sending private accounts…

The 1967 “Flying Cross” Sightings Of The United Kingdom

December 1, 2018 12:34 pm

An incident in the countryside of the south of England in October 1967 would soon progress into a wave of sightings of a specific “cross-shaped” UFO around the entire United Kingdom. Perhaps what makes this apparent surge of cross-shaped UFOs all the more interesting, themselves occurring in the middle of a general wave of UFO sightings around the United Kingdom and indeed the world in 1967 (the MoD would receive over 365 official UFO reports compared with only 95 the previous year), is that many of the witnesses are police…

The 1977 Fostoria Incident – UFO Sighting On The C&O Railroad

November 28, 2018 5:31 pm

A sighting of a disc-shaped object near the private rail lines of a distribution warehouse of Fostoria, Ohio in October 1977 featured two rail workers who witnessed the craft at extremely close range, as well as two more employees who would follow the events on the rail line’s radio communications system. What’s more, rather than a mere sighting of a strange object, there was interaction between the main witness and the craft, or more the point, the apparent intelligence inside it. The sighting remains unexplained, and while Ohio, perhaps due…

The 1952 Californian UFO Wave

November 24, 2018 12:56 pm

Throughout 1952 the state of California would experience one of the busiest years in terms of UFO and alien activity. Reports of silver discs flying through the blue skies in broad daylight. Strange glowing spheres traveling with unknown pace yet without a sound. And several encounters with strange humanoid entities. The claims of bizarre goings-on in The Golden State were as varied as they were regular. What’s more, many of the sightings would involve “working professionals” such as scientists, police officers, or other, rightly or wrongly, perceived trusted and reliable…

The 1959 Killian UFO Case

November 19, 2018 5:55 pm

We recently examined the circumstances and the potential fallout of the  UFO sightings over the southwest coast of Ireland in early-November 2018. The sightings involved several experienced airline pilots, all of whom very obviously witnessed the same object. An encounter almost sixty years earlier over the northeast of the United States was remarkably similar. The incident, in February 1959, was witnessed by an experienced airline pilot, corroborated by his own first officer, as well as the crews of two other planes, and is one that was subject to immediate investigation…

What’s Going On Off The Irish Coast? – UFO Sighting In Ireland

November 15, 2018 6:54 pm

Even those without an interest in UFOs are likely to be aware of the apparent sighting that has caused quite a stir at the start of November 2018 off the south-west coast of Ireland. What makes this sighting particularly interesting is that the main witnesses are all experienced commercial airline pilots. Essentially, they are arguably the best witness to such events. Not only due to their experience of aerial phenomena and indeed other aerial vehicles, but also for their ability to assess a fast unfolding encounter, take in the detail, and…

The 1981 Downtown Los Angeles UFO Sighting

November 12, 2018 6:41 pm

Although it isn’t spoken of as much as it perhaps should be, a sighting of a “low-flying, cigar-shaped object with white lights shining from a row of windows, and bearing green-blue and white running lights along its edge” over downtown Los Angeles in April 1981, is most certainly one of the most mind-blowing displays on record. What is perhaps even more amazing, especially given the metropolis-like city that Los Angeles undoubtedly is, the event produced, at least so far, only a single witness. The witness, though, was a respected Los…

The 1960 Red Bluff Incident

November 10, 2018 2:00 pm

One evening around midnight in the summer of 1960, in a usually quiet area of California, two police patrol officers would be witness to an encounter very likely out of this world. Furthermore, several other police officers also witnessed the same incident from different locations. And further still, on the night in question, the nearby US military base the Red Bluff Air Station would confirm the presence of an anomalous object on their radar. Strange then, that only hours later the same military base would deny such a confirmation. Nor…

Bizarre Encounters From The Woodlands Of Elliot, Maine

November 5, 2018 6:52 pm

We recently examined a string of sightings along The Tote Road in Maine which remain unexplained half a century later. This bizarre and mysterious location, however, is far from the only place of interest in this north-eastern state of America. The small town of Elliot and the woodlands that surround it have a plethora of strange stories. Two of which would happen within five years of each other in 1977 and 1982 respectively. While the sightings are both different in terms of the descriptions of the apparent crafts, quite bizarrely,…

Sightings On The Tote Road – Strange Incidents In Waldo, Maine

November 2, 2018 3:27 pm

A string of strange sightings and encounters between October and December 1968 along a part of Waldo, Maine that locals refer to as “The Tote Road”, an otherwise quiet, peaceful location to the east of the Passagassawaukeag River (Passy River) still to this day remain unexplained. Many locals would drive to this part of town. The reception for the radio was usually good. Or you could just sit and watch the stars overhead. It is an area where many locals, particularly younger people, would regularly visit and unwind. And, it…

UFO Crash In Argentina – The 1995 Salta Case

October 29, 2018 7:41 pm

An apparent crash of a silver, metallic disc-like object in the summer of 1995 in Argentina was witnessed by dozens of people, including a civil aviation pilot who would take to the skies on several search and locate missions of his own accord in the aftermath of the incident. Although he wouldn’t manage to locate the craft itself, his findings, and the dark events that followed were certainly of interest to someone. Such interest, in fact, that many researchers who would take to examine the case over the years that…

The Pittsburgh Highland Reservoir Sighting

October 25, 2018 5:02 pm 1 comment

On the evening of 1st March 1978, a construction worker, along with his girlfriend, would witness a strange object descend over the Highland Reservoir in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Little did they know, a director of the Buhl Planetarium, who was at his office late, would also witness the event. Further still, an appeal for witnesses would result in an abundance of calls to a local phone line set up to specially handle them. Many of them would describe the same object, in the same location, and at the same time. Almost thirty…

The Lake Movil UFO Incident

October 20, 2018 5:46 pm

An incident at a secluded cabin near the waters of Lake Movil, Minnesota in the summer of 1962 would prove to be only one of several similar sightings in and around the North Star State in the early-to-mid-1960s. And what’s more, many of them would have multiple witnesses, with one even managing to secure a photograph, of which, incidentally, there is no evidence of tampering or manipulation. Indeed, as we have touched on before, perhaps the many lakes and rivers of the region, including such ancient and mysterious bodies of…

Multiple UFOs On The Monon Railroad

October 15, 2018 2:53 pm 1 comment

A sighting of strange aerial activity by a railroad train crew in October 1958 is most definitely one of the most intriguing UFO accounts on record. Not least due to the fact the train they viewed the incident from was speeding along the tracks at the time, pulling no less than fifty-six train-cars behind them. Just to put that in perspective, that is a “more than half a mile of cars”. The incident would last over an hour and take place over many miles of Indiana railroad. The encounter was…
