UFOs: Waves

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 “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

First Published: December 14, 2019 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 27 minutes

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

First Published: November 30, 2019 - Last Updated: September 6, 2020 - Reading Time: 31 minutes 2 comments

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

First Published: November 17, 2019 - Last Updated: September 7, 2020 - Reading Time: 25 minutes 1 comment

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 1926 Maitland UFO Lights

First Published: November 15, 2019 - Last Updated: September 7, 2020 - Reading Time: 5 minutes

A mini wave of strange sightings involving bizarre aerial lights in the summer of 1926 over Maitland, Canada, is not only still unexplained, but they are but one of several strange encounters, some of which involved humanoid encounters, to boot. Are these sightings that pre-date the modern UFO era started by the Roswell crash connected, to each other and the sightings from the late-1940s onwards? Or are they the work of another race of alien altogether, with another different agenda…?

The November 1957 UFO Wave

First Published: November 3, 2019 - Last Updated: September 7, 2020 - Reading Time: 19 minutes 1 comment

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 1952 UFO Wave

Beginning almost immediately in January 1952, but reaching a peak of sorts in the summer, the UFO wave of 1952 was, at the time, the most active year for UFO sightings in history. Not only were sightings being reported daily, but almost hourly. Just what, or who, was behind the UFO wave of 1952 remains a mystery still to this day…

The 1950 UFO Wave

First Published: September 15, 2019 - Last Updated: July 19, 2020 - Reading Time: 28 minutes 1 comment

Beginning almost immediately as 1950 began, UFO sightings would explode for the majority of the year, across both the United States and the world. What’s more, most of these sightings were of silver, disc-shaped objects – ones that appeared to be on a widespread and secret reconnaissance mission…

The 1947 UFO Wave

First Published: September 1, 2019 - Last Updated: July 19, 2020 - Reading Time: 24 minutes

A wave of UFO sightings during the summer of 1947, mainly across the United States but experienced throughout the world, was perhaps for such wave of recent UFO history. Just what the reasons were for this wave and how it relates to the waves that would follow in the decades after remains a talking point throughout the UFO community…

The Airship Sightings

First Published: August 24, 2019 - Last Updated: September 7, 2020 - Reading Time: 21 minutes 1 comment

At the end of the 1890s and into the early 1900s, several waves of airship sightings would unfold around the world, most predominantly in the United States, the United Kingdom, and then New Zealand. The sightings themselves, of which there were dozens upon dozens, remain unexplained still today, over a century later. They also remain a talking point among UFO and aviation enthusiasts around the world…

The Black Triangle UFO Sightings Of Washington State

First Published: July 6, 2019 - Last Updated: September 7, 2020 - Reading Time: 18 minutes 1 comment

Most of us are familiar with Black Triangle UFOs. And they are spotted all over the world, seemingly increasingly so. However, it would appear that there is a particularly heavy number of such incidents from the upper north west of Washington state. Which in turn leads and connects to some of the other UFO hotspots of the United States…

The 1967 “Flying Cross” Sightings Of The United Kingdom

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

A sighting of a “cross-shaped” UFO one morning in October 1976 by a former flight administrative officer while walking his dogs in the Moigne Downs countryside of southern England would soon progress to a short burst of similar sightings around the entire United Kingdom. What’s more, 1967 was already proving to be a busy year for UFO sightings, with three times as many reports coming in to police than the previous year…

The 1952 Californian UFO Wave

First Published: November 24, 2018 - Last Updated: September 8, 2020 - Reading Time: 7 minutes

The state of California is no stranger to UFO sightings. However, throughout 1952, with the UFO phenomena still several years away from the dizzy popular cultural heights it would enjoy later in the decade, a surge of sightings of strange and mysterious flying crafts would captivate residents of the Golden State. Interestingly or not, many of the sightings would boast “credible” witnesses with backgrounds in the military, the police, or even the sciences…
