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…

UFO Greece

The UFO Crash At Megas Platanos, Greece

July 12, 2018 1:58 pm

In September 1990, a troubled UFO would plummet to the ground in Greece. Several locals witnessed the incident. As well as the apparent retrieval of the ruins by the extraterrestrials themselves. The site of the activity was further investigated by multiple residents in the immediate hours after the encounter before Greek authorities would seal the area off and announce there was nothing of consequence to report. Those that were there, however, believe they know otherwise. As we come to the end of the second decade of the twenty-first century, it…

Emtza UFO

The Emtza Train Station UFO Encounter

July 7, 2018 7:59 pm 1 comment

In November 1989, two experienced long-haul truck drivers would encounter an otherworldly vehicle while on their way to Moscow. One of them would also encounter the apparent intelligence behind it. As well as going on board and given a wealth of information literally as fast as he could ask it. It is an interesting account, not least due to the time it occurred. Right on the edge of the last stands of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall, the sighting arguably sits in a “no-mans land”…

Piedmont UFO 1973

The Piedmont UFO Incident and The 37th Parallel Conspiracy

June 25, 2018 5:07 pm

While returning home from a high school basketball game in early-1973, several members of the Piedmont High School team, along with their coach, would witness an up-close UFO sighting. They wouldn’t be the only ones, as other, corroborating witnesses would come forward also. The sighting would prove to be one of several in the Missouri region during this time. And they themselves, ultimately, part of a nationwide wave of sightings in the United States throughout much of 1973. While the majority of the sightings during the 1973 wave occurred in…

UFO Canary Islands

The 1976 Canary Islands Sphere Incident

June 23, 2018 4:20 pm

Not only is the 1976 sighting of a strange sphere over the Canary Islands one witnessed by multiple people, it is also one that firmly links extraterrestrials, or non-human life at the very least, with the sighting. Witnesses ranged from military servicemen, police officers and medical professionals, to the average tourist or resident of the area. In short, its credibility was sound. The incident was documented in the immediate aftermath via a military investigation. However, it would fully come to light following the Spanish government’s decision to declassify their UFO…

UFO France 1968

The “Dr. X” Encounter And The 1960s French UFO Invasion

June 18, 2018 7:48 pm

The bizarre sighting of a witness known only as “Dr. X” in the Aixen Provence of south-east France in November 1968 was not only one of many sightings in the French skies in the late-1960s, but it proved to result in a miraculous cure of sorts to an injury he was suffering from at the time. It was also a sighting that seemed to have a bizarre, shared effect on both the witness and his young son. Due to the amount of detail recorded by the anonymous doctor, the sighting…

The 1996 Fife UFO Incident

June 16, 2018 5:15 pm 2 comments

While making an impromptu visit to the shops one evening in September 1996 in Fife, a mother, her son, and her friend would find themselves in the middle of an incident so bizarre its legend still lives on today. Not only did the bemused and frightened trio witness a strange craft overhead, but also what they claimed were “figures” conducting unknown activities on the ground. Scotland, as we have examined previously, has a huge UFO count for a country of its size. Many believe, for example, that the Falkirk Triangle…

1973 Humanoid Wave

The 1973 Wave Of Humanoid Occupant Sightings

June 6, 2018 7:04 pm

Beginning in August 1973 and lasting until late-December, the entire planet, but in particular, the United States experienced a wave of very specific sightings. What followed would be report after report of “humanoid occupants” inside or emerging from UFOs, or humanoid creatures approaching, and on occasion, even giving chase to witnesses. Several cases of alien abduction would also occur during the same period. While 1973 was a year with a much higher than normal amount of UFO sightings, the last third would prove to be even more active. The Center…

Hokkaido UFO

The Hokkaido UFO Sightings Of 1970s Japan

June 2, 2018 1:57 pm

Hokkaido is the second largest of the Japanese islands and the furthest north. Separated by the Tsugaru Strait from Honshu, by far the largest island of Japan, Hokkaido is linked largely by a rail system under this stretch of water. The island has experienced its fair share of UFO sightings over the years, in particular, a rash of incidents in the early-1970s. Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising given that the country has a long history, stretching back thousands of years BC, regarding accounts of great creatures, or “masters” who came…

Giza Pyramid UFO

Are Recent UFO Sightings In Egypt Linked To Ancient Accounts?

May 30, 2018 5:48 pm 1 comment

Whenever UFO sightings occur over places of historical significance, it is, to some, tentative proof of extraterrestrial involvement with humanity across the ages. For example, the well-known UFO sighting at Temple Mount is regarded by some as proof of an alien connection to humanity that stretches back to antiquity. Essentially, for some, these “location” sightings are a step closer to proving such things as the ancient astronaut theory, or the “bloodlines of the ruling elite” and their apparent source, as legitimate and requiring equally legitimate study. That is very much…

The Little-Known UFO Sighting Of Ethel Field

May 23, 2018 5:43 pm

Shortly before midnight in late-September 1977, 62-year-old, Ethel Field would go out to her backyard to fetch washing in from the line. It was a chore that would result in her witnessing an event that would forever change her view of the world, if only privately. It was also an account that only came into the public arena once Ethel Field finally decided to report the incident to David Haith of the Bournemouth Times, from where it made a minor splash on local and national newspapers. Although the encounter was…

Tehran UFO Chase 1976

The Tehran UFO Jet Chase Incident

May 17, 2018 6:38 pm

Whenever there is radar confirmation to back up a UFO sighting it further strengthens the incident in terms of authenticity and credibility. This was very much the case with the 1991 Belgian Wave and the Kaikoura Lights incident of 1978, for example. Perhaps one of the most intriguing of such cases played out over the skies of the Iranian capital, Tehran, in the late-summer of 1976. Not only were there visual sightings from the ground, and military radar evidence, but several military jet pilots actively engaged the mysterious objects. What’s…

Kaikoura UFO Sighting

The Kaikoura Mountains Incident

May 16, 2018 6:04 pm

During Christmas and New Year, 1978, over the Kaikoura mountain ranges, a series of UFO sightings captivated New Zealand and, ultimately, the wider UFO world. Not only did multiple people witness the sightings with their own eyes, but radar would confirm, in real-time, that “something solid” was indeed over the skies of New Zealand’s South Island. Furthermore, over the ten days that the sightings played out, as well as confirmation from the ground were the sightings from experienced pilots who themselves were airborne and in the thick of the activity.…

UFOs Over Chicago

UFOs Over Illinois – The O’Hare, Tinley Park, And St. Clair Sightings

May 12, 2018 8:25 pm

The state of Illinois in the upper Midwest of the United States boasts several major UFO sightings throughout the 2000s. Indeed, the area is a sudden hotspot for such activity according to some researchers. And what’s more, the trends of the data suggest these sightings show no sign of decreasing. Of the fifty states that make up America, a collection of data from 2000 to 2015 ranked Illinois as eighth in the US in terms of UFO sightings. What further makes these high-profile sightings over the last two decades even…

The Persistent Mystery Of The Hessdalen Lights

May 9, 2018 7:55 pm

In the small rural village of Hessdalen in central Norway, a seven-mile stretch of valley is home to mysterious lights that both locals and UFO researchers have witnessed and studied for decades. Usually of a white, red, or yellow color, the lights have appeared in the valley persistently since the early-1980s. Beginning in the summer of 1983, “Project Hessdalen” was established, with a view to finding out what was behind this strange phenomenon. Whether the lights are intelligently guided crafts, or the result of natural phenomena is still unknown. And…
