UFOs: Sightings

The Increasing Sightings Of UFOs On Live TV Broadcasts

There are literally hundreds of UFO sightings every year. And likely just as many that go unreported for various reasons, not least of which is the fear of ridicule. And these sightings range from strange and bizarrely moving lights to apparent metallic aircraft that look and move unlike anything known to exist here on Earth.

As we might imagine, there are multiple explanations offered for these strange sightings. Some claim they are merely illusionary tricks of the light, some assert they are top-secret aircraft of the world’s governments, while others maintain that they are visitors from another world beyond the stars. There are also further, perhaps more outlandish although no less possible proposals, that these strange aircraft are visitors from another dimension or even another time.

From sightings known to people with little interest in UFO matters such as the Phoenix Lights episode that was witnessed by hundreds of people, including state government officials, to the plethora of accounts that surface in the files of UFO organizations and websites dedicated to such reports, not only have people been witnessing these strange aerial anomalies for decades, perhaps centuries, but they continue to see them today in our contemporary era.

By definition UFOs – Unidentified Flying Objects – exist. What they might one day prove to be, however, remains a mystery…

The Discreet Beginnings Of An Alien Agenda? UFO Encounters From The Opening Years Of World War Two

As the Second World War gripped much of Europe, and, in turn, the rest of the world, UFO sightings continued to occur, albeit at a slightly slower pace.

Encounters With Humanoids And Advanced Alien Vehicles: UFO Accounts From The Roaring Twenties

Machine-Like Vehicles And Strange Green Creatures: UFO Encounters Of The First World War Era

The second decade of the twentieth century, perhaps because of the bloody carnage that was the First World War, has a small mountain of UFO reports and encounters with strange humanoid entities to its name. Whether these potential aliens were the same ones that would announce themselves in the late 1940s at the start of the Modern UFO Era is perhaps open to debate. That there were unknown and mysterious vehicles with equally mysterious occupants traversing our skies isn’t…

Daylight Discs, Strange Airships, And Humanoid Occupants: The Opening Decade Of The Pre-Roswell UFO Era!

UFO sightings go much further back than the start of the Modern UFO Era in the late-1940s. However, rather than merely being sporadic sightings spread across time and distance, these reports of bizarre aerial vehicles were much more regular than we at first might suspect. And when we factor in the many sightings that will have been lost to time, we should be alert to the fact that there has been a regular UFO presence on Earth for a lot longer than we would perhaps like to imagine…
