The 1976 Canary Islands Sphere Incident

First Published: June 23, 2018 - Last Updated: February 7, 2020 1 comment

On the evening of 22nd June 1976, multiple witnesses – very likely over a thousand – would witness strange glowing spheres over the skies of the Canary Islands. The case would remain locked away until the mid-nineties when the Spanish government declassified its UFO files. Some who had witnessed the events close up managed to capture photographs, while others told of witnessing “entities” within the spheres themselves…

First Published: June 18, 2018 - Last Updated: February 27, 2019

An encounter in the otherwise quiet French countryside of the Aixen Provence in November 1968 would see the witness – a doctor whose anonymity requires us to call him “Dr. X” – was awoken to the sounds of his young baby crying and a strange storm outside. When he ventured outside, he would have a close encounter with a craft of unknown origin but of apparent intelligence. Furthermore, he would discover a short time after the incident that a persistent injury to his leg had suddenly healed…

First Published: June 16, 2018 - Last Updated: July 21, 2019 2 comments

Scotland, particularly for its size, has an abundance of UFO encounters to its name. One such incident in Fife in the autumn of in September 1996 would see an entire family in the middle of a UFO incident that is still spoken of, and indeed researched and investigated today, over two decades after it unfolded. Not only would they witness strange craft, they would also witness strange creatures that were “obviously not human”…

The Hokkaido UFO Sightings Of 1970s Japan

First Published: June 2, 2018 - Last Updated: July 23, 2019

Throughout the 1970s, the second largest of Japan’s islands, Hokkaido, experienced several prominent UFO sightings, several of which would result in picture. All were different in their finer details, but it would appear that something was in the skies over Hokkaido during the decade. What might raise an eye brow or two is beginning in 2010, UFO sightings appear to be happening in the same area once again…

Are Recent UFO Sightings In Egypt Linked To Ancient Accounts?

First Published: May 30, 2018 - Last Updated: March 11, 2019 1 comment

Many UFO researchers, particularly those who subscribe to the ancient astronaut theory, have a strong conviction of the possibility of extraterrestrial involvement in ancient Egypt. So, when sightings occur in the contemporary era near such places at the Giza Pyramids or the Sphinx, it makes some sections of the UFO community take a little bit of an extra interest…

The Little-Known UFO Sighting Of Ethel Field

First Published: May 23, 2018 - Last Updated: February 27, 2019

Although she would report the incident to local journalist in September 1977, 62-year-old Ethel Field would so only that one time. That her story has survived into the modern age is a testament to UFO researchers throughout the years, specifically in this case, the British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society. Just what did she see from her back yard? And was it part of several other sightings that took place in the United Kingdom in the weeks that followed her encounter…

The Tehran UFO Jet Chase Incident

First Published: May 17, 2018 - Last Updated: March 19, 2019

Perhaps one of the most credible and authentic UFO encounters would unfold over the skies of Tehran in Iran in the late-summer of 1976, when several military jets would actively pursue several strange objects over the country’s capitol. Not only that, but the events were witnessed by thousands of citizens below, as well as being captured on film, which eventually, in the Internet age, allowed many of us to witness the events ourselves…

The Kaikoura Mountains Incident

First Published: May 16, 2018 - Last Updated: February 22, 2019

There were several sightings of UFOs in the Kaikoura Mountains between Christmas and New Year 1978. However, what made one of the last of them particularly special was the presence of a professional news cameraman meant several minutes of their presence could be filmed. An investigation by the Royal New Zealand Air Force would state they were “unburnt meteors”. However, declassified three decades later would suggest there was much more to the sightings than would the military had offered…

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

First Published: May 12, 2018 - Last Updated: February 14, 2019

So far, in the first two decades of the 2000s, Illinois has proven to be one of the top states in America for UFO sightings. What’s more, Illinois can boast several sightings within this period that have not only multiple witnesses, but witnesses with a “professional” background such as pilots, military, or police officers. That Illinois sits on the shores of Lake Michigan is not coincidence, given the ancient lake’s own history with strange events and phenomena…?

The Persistent Mystery Of The Hessdalen Lights

First Published: May 9, 2018 - Last Updated: February 27, 2019

Although they are still studied today to a much lesser degree, in the early-to-mid 1980s strange lights over the Norwegian town of Hessdalen were a regular and persistent occurrence. Furthermore, even today, two-thirds of UFO reports in Norway hail from this most mysterious area. Just what are these strange lights? And are they connected to the UFO and alien question…?

The Mindalore Incident And Persistent UFO Activity South Africa

First Published: April 28, 2018 - Last Updated: March 19, 2019

South Africa, as beautiful and historic a country as it is, is perhaps not one of the first place many of us will think about when the subject of UFOs and aliens is brought up. However, South Africa has been subject to some of the most fascinating sightings in the history of ufology. And from an ancient astronaut perspective, this is where the first missions to mine gold took place. It would, then, make sense for sightings to occur there today in contemporary times…

The Cowichan Hospital Encounter

First Published: April 21, 2018 - Last Updated: July 23, 2019 1 comment

Perhaps one of the most little-known UFO incidents took place in the early hours of New Year’s Day 1970 in British Columbia, Canada, when the several staff members on the night shift at Cowichan District Hospital would witness a strange craft, with occupants, at extremely close range. What made the sighting even more credible, were the corroborating sightings in the same region in the hours that followed the incident…

The 1973 Mansfield Coyne Helicopter UFO Incident

First Published: April 16, 2018 - Last Updated: October 6, 2019

Still considered to be one of the most genuine and authentic UFO encounters, the incident over Mansfield, Ohio in October 1973 – when much of the United States was experiencing a wave of strange aerial sightings – would see four experienced and respected military pilots witness an object seemingly from out of this world at extremely close range. Furthermore, multiple residents on the ground would also witness the events, which officially, remain unexplained to this day…

The Howden Moor UFO Incident

First Published: April 9, 2018 - Last Updated: March 19, 2019

The incident over the Howden Moors, in an area between South Yorkshire and Derbyshire in the north of England in March 1997 is either the most mistaken UFO incident in history, or one of the better covered-up encounters. Multiple reports of a “crashed UFO” would come from the public, units from several police forces would conduct all-night searches of freezing countryside, and witnesses would speak of “military helicopters” discreetly operating in the area…

The Quietly Important Arizona UFO Encounter?

First Published: April 2, 2018 - Last Updated: February 21, 2019

What made a UFO report in March 2018 extremely relevant for many UFO researchers was the fact that the two witnesses were both airline pilots for two different airlines. Furthermore, the media would, for a time, take a widespread interest in the case, and would do so in a relatively serious manner. Just the fact that such experienced airline pilots were speaking openly about such an incident was, to some, very telling of things to come…
