The Wedowee, Alabama UFO Orb Chase

First Published: March 25, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 10 minutes

In the fall of 1995, an incident in Alabama would see a orb-like UFO follow a van full of churchgoing bingo players as they made their way from Georgia to a church in the American deep south state. What is perhaps interesting is that there are many similar sightings – not only of orb-like objects, but of strange crafts that moved in such alien-like ways that it would certainly seem they hailed from another world…

The Bagshot Heath UFO Incident

First Published: March 18, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 9 minutes

The UFO encounter on a lonely road in Bagshot Heath in the south of England on a late September evening in 1985 is one that is little spoken of or indeed dusted off for further research. This, despite, multiple witnesses from different locations, and the detailed aftermath and hypnotic regression sessions that would further reveal more details about this little-known encounter. Was UFO researcher Gordon Creighton correct when he claimed that there is a purposeful effort by some to quieten the media presence of these otherwise credible UFO encounters…?

The Portage County UFO Chase

First Published: February 17, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 18 minutes 2 comments

In the early hours of one April morning in 1966 in Portage County, Ohio, several police officers would chase a UFO across a state border, covering over eight miles and lasting for over an hour. It is still regarded, over half a century later, as one of the most credible UFO encounters of all time. And furthermore, it would appear that the sighting was just one of a wave of sightings in the upper northeast of the United States…

The Zamora Incident – UFO Landing At Socorro

First Published: February 10, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 17 minutes 5 comments

A UFO incident that took place in Socorro, New Mexico in April 1964 continues to fascinate researchers today, over half a century after it took place. The Zamora incident, according to some researchers, is one of the most credible encounters on record and will most likely prove to be one of the most important UFO events to ever unfold. And what’s more, it would appear the US government would go out of their way to discredit and distance themselves from the incident…

The Trans-en-Provence UFO Landing

A single-witness sighting in France in January 1981 may well have been lost to the void of forgotten history if it hadn’t have been for the physical evidence left behind by the disc-shaped craft that, albeit very briefly, landed in a field near to the property of Renato Nicolai, whose real identity, incidentally, initially remained a secret due to the very specific French privacy laws. Just what did land that evening in Trans-en-Provence? And does it share connections to other, similar sightings…?

Was The 2002 Kentucky UFO Train Collision Genuine Or A Hoax?

First Published: January 10, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 2 comments

An apparent collision between a cargo train and a disc-shaped UFO in January morning in 2002 is a case that continues to divide opinion in the UFO community. While some insist the report is nothing more than a hoax, others point to the use of specific “railyard language” as a means of proving its authenticity. Just what did happen just outside the old Paintsville railyard in the early hours of that cold January morning…?

The Shari Adamiak Las Mitres Mountains UFO Report

First Published: January 7, 2019 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes

A CSETI UFO field investigation in December 1994 in Monterrey, Mexico not only saw two respected UFO researchers make contact with an alien entity, but it was a contact of the kind that is against the usual grain of abductions and experiments, perhaps most associated with “The Greys”. The incident is without a doubt one of the most intriguing on record…

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

In October 1977 in Fostoria, Ohio, two experienced rail workers would have a close encounter, featuring communitive interaction, with a disc-shaped craft apparently under intelligent control while making their way along the C&O railroad. The incident, which is still without an adequate explanation, occurred near the already mysterious Lake Eire, a hot-spot of sorts for UFO activity and bizarre phenomena…

Bizarre Encounters From The Woodlands Of Elliot, Maine

First Published: November 5, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 1 comment

The woodlands that surround the town of Elliot in Maine are host to a whole plethora of strange accounts and local legends. Two of the most bizarre, and certainly of interest to both the UFO and the paranormal communities occurred at either end of a five-year window between 1977 and 1982. And what perhaps made these sightings all the more interesting is the “morphing” of an apparent nuts-and-bolts craft from one thing to something completely different…

The Close Encounters And Bizarre Incidents Of 3rd September 1976

First Published: October 26, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 7 minutes

The date of 3rd September is one that is burned in the memories of space enthusiasts around the world as the date that the Viking 2 landed on Mars for the first time. However, back on Earth, whether coincidentally or not, three bizarre UFO encounters would unfold within hours of each other, in drastically different locations on the planet…

Multiple UFOs On The Monon Railroad

First Published: October 15, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 1 comment

In October 1958, the Monon Railroad that runs through Indiana was host to one of the most intriguing UFO sightings on record. What’s more, five experienced crew members were on board the freight trains as it careered through the mid-western state, while one of the most spectacular incidents unfolded around them. Further still, they would retain enough mental fortitude to document the incident intricately…

The 1980 White-Acres Rosedale UFO Encounter

First Published: October 6, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 1 comment

The UFO encounter at White-Acres Farm in Rosedale, Australia is important for several reasons. There were corroborating witnesses to the bizarre events as well as physical evidence left behind. That evidence, though – a strange black circle on the ground of the incident – is one that is replicated in multiple UFO sightings across the globe. Many of which occurred between the early sixties and early eighties. Most of these, also occurred on farms and near large supplies of water…

The Multiple Witness Trumbull County UFO Incident

First Published: September 20, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 1 comment

Perhaps one of the most credible UFO encounters took place in December 1994 in Trumbull County in the state of Ohio. Not only were there multiple witnesses to the event, but several of them were on-duty police officers, themselves trained to operate calmly in the most pressured and bizarre situations. What all involved agreed with, was that the events of Trumbull county, involving a solid craft, were most certainly strange and bizarre…

The James Flynn Incident – UFO Over The Florida Everglades

Experienced hunter and outdoorsman, James Flynn, would venture into the Florida Everglades in his purposely made hunting jeep with his four dogs. What followed was an encounter with a UFO that would not only leave physical evidence at the site but would also leave Flynn with permanent and life-changing injuries. At a time when UFO sightings were reaching ever higher levels, this is an incident that stands out from many of the same era…

Michigan, 1966 – The “Swamp Gas” Incidents

First Published: September 8, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 3 comments

The sightings of strange activity in the Ann Arbor region of Michigan in March 1966 is perhaps more famous for the rather outlandish, but official explanation issued for it – that the sightings were down to “swamp gas”. It was an explanation that the witnesses would reject outright. As would the vast majority of UFO researchers who examined the case over the decades since. It remains, then, one of the most controversial sightings on record…
