UFOs: Waves

The Belgian UFO Wave – A Truly Unique Display Of The Unknown

It is perhaps easy to dismiss a sighting with a single witness as mistaken or even fabrication. Likewise, it is to dismiss an incident witnessed by many if even only a loose-fitting explanation can be found. However, when reports and sightings of these strange aerial crafts come one after the other, in waves, often prolonged over many months, such automatic dismissals are not so easy to go to.

There have been several significant UFO waves since the start of the modern UFO era in the summer of 1947. Some of these have been felt across the entire planet for months at a time, while others have seemingly focused on a particular region or location for several weeks before ceasing to appear as quickly as they began.

Are these waves of sightings the result of purposely planned government experiments? If so, for what purpose would such a public, yet secretive display serve? If they are extraterrestrial in nature, what is the reason for the specific times and, in some cases, locations chosen?

Might some kind of unknown cosmic interference even be the cause of such rapid increases in sightings, perhaps opening some kind of wormhole in space and time allowing for a temporary crossover of these strange vehicles, and their occupants, from their realm of existence into ours?

Like UFOs themselves, there are seemingly multiple possibilities for why UFO waves happen…?

The Little-Known 1949 Norwood UFO Searchlight Encounters

Although they are little-known, even in UFO circles, the 1949 UFO Searchlight sightings are potentially some of the most important on record. Not only were they witnessed by multiple people over the course of several months, they happened in the run-up to a wave of UFO sightings the following year. Furthermore, there are hints of a possible cover-up, with two key photographs still mysteriously missing three quarters of a century later…

One Bizarre Night In 1993: The Flash UFO Wave Of Indiana

What made the UFO wave of July 13th 1993 over northeastern Indiana was that it was over almost as soon as it had begun, lasting around 90 minutes. However, during that time there was a surge of reports from multiple people who claimed to have seen bizarre lights on an oval-shaped object. From the reports it is possible to establish a timeline of sorts that shows whatever the strange lights were they were taking a very definite and purposeful course…

The “Other” UFO Waves

We have looked at pretty much all of the UFO waves to have hit the world’s population, but some waves, as relevant as they are, are much lesser known although no less important in the big scheme of the UFO and alien question. We will examine some of these “other” UFO waves here, and ask as we go along, what the details might mean to the overall UFO picture…

The 1973 Humanoid UFO Wave

Not only was the United States, and to a lesser degree the rest of the world, experiencing a wave of UFO sightings during 1973, but a great many of them would specifically feature “humanoid occupants”. Many of these were extremely similar in detail. Just what was unfolding throughout the United States in 1973? Who were these “humanoids” and why did sightings of them suddenly cease seemingly as quickly as they began…?

The 1967 UFO Wave

The 1967 UFO Wave is called by some “The Mother Of All UFO Waves” and was without a doubt one of the busiest years in UFO history. It is perhaps strange, then, that is possibly one of the least well remembered. Just what was hovering and screaming through the skies of our planet over half a century ago? And what was the purpose of this absolute abundance of UFO sightings and alien encounters…?

The 1964 UFO Wave

The 1964 UFO Wave was perhaps different to other waves that had unrolled across the United States and around the world in that many of the incidents resulted in landings and basic interaction with the apparent occupants of the crafts. Indeed, as with other waves the 1964 UFO wave appeared to have its own uniqueness…

The November 1957 UFO Wave

Several things made the November 1957 UFO wave stand up from other similar waves of the 1950s. Note least that a great many of the sightings were almost identical in both the descriptions of the crafts and the timeline of each sighting. That the same intelligence was at work would seem particularly obvious. Although UFO sightings were up in general in 1957, the month of November was one of the most active four weeks in UFO history…

The 1954 UFO Wave

The 1954 UFO Wave is perhaps one of, if not the busiest and most active UFO wave in history. And what’s more, it presents to researchers – still today in our contemporary era – a complete plethora of possibilities and accounts still to be deciphered and explained. Of all the UFO waves since the start of the modern UFO era, the wave of 1954 is arguably the most important…

The 1950 UFO Wave

They also remain a talking point among UFO and aviation enthusiasts around the world…
