Kaz Psychic - Ufology
Ufology - unidentified flying objects - UFO's- flying saucers, are they an alien invasion, prototype craft being tested by military forces or just figments of our imagination?
Ufology - unidentified flying objects - UFO's- flying saucers
Ufology is the term for the research and study into claims, reports, visual records, physical evidence and other related phenomena relating to unidentified flying objects so-called "UFO's".
BUFORA & MUFON
UFO's have been the subject of a copious amount of investigations over many years, by both government agencies, scientists, and independent groups such as BUFORA (British UFO Research Association) who describe themselves as a 'non-cultist and scientifically evaluative organization', and which was formed in 1962 in Kensington in London, and MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) who claim to be 'the world's oldest and largest UFO phenomenon investigative body'.
Kenneth Arnold in 1947
3 main roots of Ufology
There are 3 main roots to Ufology, starting in the 19th century with reported 'mystery airships' reported in the press and media in western United States of America, where 'foo fighters' reported by the Allied airmen of World War 2 and where the so-called Kenneth Arnold 'flying saucer' was sighted bear to Mt Rainder in Washington, on the 24th June 1947.
Kenneth Arnold sighting
UFO reports between what is termed the "The Great Airship Wave" and the Kenneth Arnold sighting were of a somewhat limited number by comparison to the post war period in which notable sightings and reports include those of the so-called 'ghost fliers' in North America and also Europe during the 1930's in addition to more numerous reports of what were regarded as 'ghost rockets' in Scandinavia (mainly Sweden) between May and December back in 1946.
Flying saucer hype
Flying saucer hype appears to have commenced around the late 1940's and early 1950's as a spin off (forgive the pun) to the Kenneth Arnold sighting which afforded the concept of flying saucers a wider public audience.
United States Military
The public's fascination with UFO's grew alongside the increase in reported sightings, upon which the United States military began to take notice of the alleged phenomenon.
Cold War and Korean War
Curiously enough the explosion of UFO sightings of that early post war era, seems to coincide with ant escalation of the Cold War and also the Korean war.
Capture of German technology
The United States Military suspected and feared that the Soviet Union had been developed as a direct result of their capture of German technology and of course this was regarded as a possible breach to national security, prompting the need for serious and systematic investigation.
CIA's 'Robertson Panel'
However, by 1952 the official US government interest in UFOs and their sightings began to fade as USAF projects known as sign and grudge were concluded with the CIA's 'Robertson Panel' that UFO reports indicated no direct threat to national security, which is strange, given that no other explanation as to what these UFO's actually were, or so it would seem. Perhaps there is something that we are being kept in the dark about?
Robertson Panel (USA, 1953)
Before the final 'Battelle report' was published, the Central Intelligence Agency (widely known as simply the CIA), had developed an interest in UFO's as from a national security standpoint, and they set up a committee to examine existing UFO data at that time.
Howard Percy Robertson
The panel was headed by mathematician and physicist Howard P. Robertson, and it met from January 14th to January 17th 1953.
The Robertson panel concluded unanimously, that the UFO sightings posed no direct threat to national security, but did find that a continued emphasis on UFO reporting might threaten government functions by causing the channels of communication to clog with irrelevant reports and by inducing mass hysteria, this was clearly a cause for concern as sightings increased.
Also, the Robertson panel were worried that nations hostile to the US might use the UFO phenomena to disrupt their own air defenses.
To meet these identified potential problems, the panel stated that a policy of public education on the lack of evidence behind UFOs was therefore required to be done through the mass media and schools, among others.
It also recommended monitoring private UFO groups for subversive or compromising activities.
The recommendations of the Roberson Panel were partly implemented through a series of special military regulations.
According to Wikipedia:
The December 1953 Joint-Army-Navy-Air Force Publication 146 (JANAP 146) made publication of UFO sightings a crime under the Espionage Act.
The Air Force Regulation 200-2 (AFR 200-2) revision of 1954 made all UFO sightings reported to the USAF classified.
AFR 200-2 revision of February 1958 allowed the military to deliver to the FBI names of those who were "illegally or deceptively" bringing UFOs to public attention.
Condon Committee report
The US government's official research into UFOs ended with the publication of the so-called 'Condon Committee report' in completed in 1969, and which concluded that the study of UFOs for the past 21 years up until that point in time, had achieved very little, if anything at all, and that further extensive study of UFO sightings was unwarranted and subsequently not sanctioned, or so it would appear! The Condon Committee report also recommended the termination of the USAF special unit Project Blue Book.
Edward U. Condon 1902-1974
Condon Committee (USA, 1966–1968)
According to Wikipedia - Condon Committee
After the recommendations of the Robertson Panel, the United States Air Force (USAF) wanted to end its involvement in UFOs, and pass what was called "Project Blue Book" to another agency.
So, in October 1966, the USAF contracted the University of Colorado, under the leadership of physicist Edward U. Condon, for $325,000 to conduct more scientific investigations of selected UFO sightings and to make recommendations about the project's future.
The committee looked at ninety-one UFO sightings, of which 30% was unidentifiable.
Dismissed UFO's as extraterrestrial spacecraft
The report concluded that there was no "direct evidence" that UFOs were extraterrestrial spacecraft, that UFO research from the past twenty-one years had not contributed anything to scientific knowledge, and that further study was not justified.
As a direct result of the Condon report, Project Blue Book was closed in December 1969.
Many ufologists, however, were not satisfied with the Condon report, and considered it a cover-up.
Project Blue Book (USA, 1951–1969)
Main article: Project Blue Book
As a continuation of what was code named or called: "Project Sign" and "Project Grudge" in back in 1951, the USAF launched something they called "Project Blue Book", which was led by Captain Edward J. Ruppelt.
Captain Edward J. Ruppelt
Captain Edward J. Ruppelt
Under Ruppelt, the collection and investigation of UFO sightings became more systematic.
The project issued a series of status reports, which were declassified in September 1960 and made available in 1968 and released into the public domain.
Classified as: 'unidentified'
Project Blue Book was terminated in December 1969, following the report by the Condon Committee. Until then, 12,618 anomalous UFO incidents had been investigated, and the grand majority of which explained, more by conventional means. That said, something like 701 cases, or around 6%, have remained what was classified as being "unidentified".
Officially, the USAF (United States Air Force), concluded from the project that the somewhat phenomena they had been tasked with investigating were of no real concern to national security, and that there was no actual evidence that the sightings categorized as "unidentified", were caused by 'extraterrestrial aircraft'.
As the U.S. government ceased officially in their studying and researching into UFO and their sightings, the same became true for most other governments of the world, a little like a 'domino effect'!
France the exception
A more notable exception to this, however,is that of France, which still continues to maintain the GEIPAN (which stands for "Groupe d'Études et d'Informations sur les Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés") , formerly known as GEPAN (which stands for "Groupe d'Étude des Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés") (1977–1988) and SEPRA (which formerly stood for "Service d'Expertise des Phénomènes de Rentrée Atmosphérique" and latterly stands for "Service d'Expertise des Phénomènes Rares Aérospatiaux") (1988–2004), a unit under the French Space Agency CNES (which stands for "Centre national d'études spatiales").
Studies by GEPAN, SERPA & GEIPAN (France, 1977–present)
Back in 1977, the French Space Agency 'CNES' Director General, set up a unit to record UFO sighting reports.
The unit was initially known as the 'Groupe d’Etudes des Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non identifiés (GEPAN)', changed in 1988 to 'Service d'expertise de rentrée atmosphérique Phenom (SERPA)' and in then in 2005 it changed again to being known as the 'Groupe d'études et d'informations sur les phénomènes aérospatiaux non identifiés (GEIPAN').
GEIPAN it seems, found a mundane explanation for the vast majority of recorded cases, but then in 2007, after some 30 years of investigation, around 1,600 cases, constituting approximately 28% of the total cases, remained unexplained "despite precise witness accounts of UFO sightings and reports, and despite this being with good-quality evidence apparently recovered from the scene" and are categorized as "Type D".
And in April 2010, GEIPAN statistics apparently stated that around 23% of all cases were of Type D.
However, Jean-Jacques Velasco, the head of SEPRA from 1983 to 2004, wrote a book in 2004 noting that around 13.5% of the 5,800 cases studied by SEPRA had in fact been dismissed and without any rational explanation, whilst having stated that UFOs are in fact extraterrestrial in origin.
Fata Morgana (mirages) and flying saucers
What is termed as 'Fata Morgana of distant islands distorted images beyond recognition Fata Morgana, a type of mirage', may be responsible for some flying saucers sightings, by displaying objects located below the astronomical horizon whilst hovering in the sky, and in turn magnifying and distorting them, offers some sort of explanation to the changing attributes which some have reported seeing with regard to their sightings of UFO phenomena or anomalies.
By the same token, some unidentified flying objects which are seen on radar might also be due to 'Fata Morgana-type atmospheric phenomena', though more technically they are known as "anomalous propagation" and more commonly as "radar ghosts". Official UFO investigations in France suggest:
"Castles in the air."
As is well known now, atmospheric ducting is the explanation for certain types of optical mirages, and in particular one known as the 'arctic illusion' called "fata morgana" whereas distant ocean or surface ice, which is essentially flat, appears to the viewer in the form of vertical columns and spires, or "castles in the air."
People are often inclined to assume that 'mirages' only occur rarely. And this may be true of 'optical mirages', but in fact, conditions for 'radar mirages' are more common than one might think, and this is due to the role played by water vapor which strongly affects the atmospheric refractivity in relation to what we know to be radio waves.
However, since clouds are closely associated with high levels of water vapor, these 'optical mirages' which are due to water vapor, are often rendered undetectable by the accompanying opaque cloud.
Radar mirages' and 'atmospheric ducting'
On the other hand, what is termed 'radar propagation' is essentially unaffected by the water droplets of a cloud so that changes in water vapor content with altitude, are very effective in producing what is termed 'atmospheric ducting' and 'radar mirages'.
Mysterious Australian phenomenon 'Min Min light'
'Fata Morgana' was named as a hypothesis for the mysterious Australian phenomenon Min Min light.
During the Cold War, British,Canadian, Danish, Italian and Swedish governments each collected reports of UFO sightings.
Britain's Ministry of Defence ceased accepting any new reports for study or research as of 2010.
Peter A Sturrock
Famous mainstream scientists who have been shown to express interest in the UFO phenomenon include astronomer J. Allen Hynek, Stanford physicist Peter A. Sturrock, University of Arizona meteorologist James E. McDonald and computer scientist and astronomer Jacques F. Vallée.
Sturrock Panel Report (USA, 1997)
From September 29th to October 4th 1997, a workshop examining selected UFO incidents and reported sightings, took place in Tarrytown in New York. The meeting was initiated by Peter A. Sturrock, who had reviewed the Condon report and found it somewhat dissatisfying.
The international review panel consisted of nine physical scientists, who responded to eight different investigators of UFO reports and sightings, they were all asked to present their strongest data.
'Journal of Scientific Exploration'
The final report of the workshop was published under the title the "Physical Evidence Related to UFO Reports", and was published in the 'Journal of Scientific Exploration' back in 1998.
The study concluded that the studied cases and reports, presented no unequivocal evidence for the presence of unknown physical phenomena or for extraterrestrial intelligence, or as popular terminology states, UFO's, but it nevertheless argued, that a continued study of UFO cases or phenomena, might be scientifically valuable.
Ufology is however, characterized as a partial or total pseudoscience, which of course many 'ufologists' reject Pseudoscience is a term which classifies studies that are claimed to exemplify the methods and principles of science, but which do not adhere to an appropriate scientific methodology, and which lack supporting evidence, falsifiability, plausibility, or otherwise lack the accepted scientific status.
Professor Gregory Feist
Professor Gregory Feist
Professor Gregory Feist, an academic psychologist, and Associate Professor, Psychology as San Jose State University, proposes that ufology can be actually be categorized as a 'pseudoscience' because of its adherents claim of it to be a science while being rejected as being one, by the wider scientific community, and also because the field lacks a a requisite cumulative scientific progress; ufology has not, in his view, advanced enough since the 1950s.
Rachel Cooper, a lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Lancaster in the UK, and also a philosopher of science and medicine, states that in her considered opinion, the fundamental problem in ufology is not the lack of scientific methodology, as many ufologists have striven to meet standards of scientific acceptability, but rather the fact that the assumptions on which the research is often based are considered highly speculative, which of course doesn't help to further the study and research of the UFO phenomena.
Scientific UFO research and study in the main suffers from the fact it's phenomena under observation, do not appear make predictable appearances at any one time or in any one place, convenient a researcher. And Ufologist Diana Palmer Hoyt argues, quote -
"The UFO problem seems to bear a closer resemblance to problems in meteorology than in physics.
The phenomena are observed, occur episodically, are not reproducible, and in large part, are identified by statistical gathering of data for possible organization into patterns. They are not experiments that can be replicated at will at the laboratory bench under controlled conditions".
On the other hand, skeptics have argued that UFOs are not necessarily a scientific problem anyway, as there is no real tangible physical evidence in which to study.
Barry Markovsky argues that, under scrutiny by qualified investigators, the vast majority of UFO sightings turn out to have rather more mundane explanations.
Astronomer Carl Sagan
Astronomer Carl Sagan stated on UFO sightings, that "The reliable cases are uninteresting and the interesting cases are unreliable. Unfortunately there are no cases that are both reliable and interesting."!
Sturrock - 'compartmentalize UFO studies'
Peter A. Sturrock states that UFO studies should be more compartmentalized into at least "the following distinct activities":
(1) Field investigations leading to case documentation and the measurement or retrieval of physical evidence;
(2) The analysis of compilations of data (descriptive and physical) to look for patterns and so extract significant facts;
(3)The development of theories and the evaluation of those theories on the basis of facts.
(4) Laboratory analysis of physical evidence;
(5) The systematic compilation of data (descriptive and physical) to look for patterns and so extract significant facts;
Denzler states that ufology as a field of study has branched into two distinct and different mind sets: the first group being that of investigators who seek to convince the unbelievers and subsequently earn intellectual legitimacy through systematic study, using the scientific method, and the second group being made up of those who sees the follow-up questions concerning the origin and "mission" of the UFOs, as being more important than a potential academic standing.
Josef Allen Hynek
The Hynek system was developed in the 1970s.
J. Allen Hynek's original system of description divides sightings into six main and distinctive categories.
It first separates these sightings into distant - and what is more popularly known as 'close-encounter' categories, arbitrarily setting five-hundred feet as his official cut off point.
It then subdivides these close and distant categories, based on appearance or special features:
Nocturnal Lights (NL): Anomalous lights often seen in the night sky.
Daylight Discs (DD): Any anomalous object, generally but not necessarily "discoidal", or what is more traditionally known as 'the flying saucer' seen in the distant daytime sky.
Radar/Visual cases (RV): These are objects which are seen simultaneously by eye and also on radar.
Hynek close encounter (CE) subcategories
Hynek also defined three close encounter (CE) subcategories:
CE1: This category relates to strange objects which are seen nearby, but without any physical interaction with the environment.
CE2: A CE1: A case which leaves physical evidence, for example: soil depressions, perhaps some vegetation damage to crops, anomalous radiations or that which causes some form of electromagnetic interference.
CE3: CE1 or CE2: these are cases where occupants or entities, often referred to as 'aliens' are actually seen.
4th later Hynek category
Later, Josef Hynek went on to introduce a fourth category known as CE4, which he used to describe the cases whereby the witness feels he or she may have been or actually was abducted by a UFO and it's 'alien' occupants.
Some other ufologists have adopted a fifth category known as CE5, which involves more conscious human-initiated contact with extraterrestrial intelligence or 'aliens'.
Jacques Fabrice Vallée, a venture capitalist, computer scientist, book author, Ufologist and former astronomer, has also devised a UFO classification system, whereby UFO sightings of four different and distinct categories are divided into five subcategories which are:
Close Encounter (CE): As per Hynek.
Maneuver (MA): Trajectory discontinuity in flight.
Fly-by (FB): No observed discontinuity in flight.
Anomaly (AN): Unusual lights or unexplained entities.
His five subcategories can apply to all previous categories of sightings:
(1) An actual sighting
(2) Physical effects: such as a radar sighting
(3) A Life form or living entity - such as an 'alien'
(4) Reality transformation: witnesses experienced a transformation of their sense of reality (often corresponding to the popular characterization of the incident as an abduction)
(5) Physiological impact: Such as death or serious injury
Thus, the Vallée categorization categorizes cases as MA-2, AN-1, CE-4, for example.
United Nations (1977–1979)
Thanks to the apparent lobbying of someone called Eric Gairy, the Prime Minister of Grenada, the United Nations General Assembly addressed the UFO issue back in the late 1970s.
And then on July 14, 1978, a panel, with Gordon Cooper, J. Allen Hynek, and Jacques Vallée among its members, held a hearing in order to inform the UN Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim, about the matter.
A/DEC/32/424 and A/DEC/33/426
The consequence of this meeting, was that the UN adopted decisions A/DEC/32/424 and A/DEC/33/426, which called for the "establishment of an agency or a department of the United Nations for undertaking, co-ordinating and also disseminating the results of research into the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects (UFO's) and related phenomena".
Dr Steven Greer MD
"Disclosure Project" press conference (USA, 2001)
On May 9th, 2001, some twenty government workers from military and also civilian organizations spoke about their experiences regarding UFOs and what many term 'extraterrestrial anomalies' and also about UFO confidentiality, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
Steven M. Greer MD
The press conference was initiated by Steven M. Greer, founder of the 'Disclosure Project', which has the goal and purpose of disclosing and exposing alleged government secrecy with regard to UFO's.
The purpose of the press conference was to build public pressure through the media in order to obtain a hearing before the United States Congress on the issue.
Although major American media outlets reported on the conference, the interest quickly died down, and no hearing came forth, no surprise there, and of course the same old excuse was probably that Congress would not want to be seen to be doing anything to encourage mass hysteria or panic, or have the government subject to the dangers of active conspiracy theorists and the like.
RAND Corporation paper (USA, 1968)
The RAND Corporation produced a short internal document which they titled "UFOs: What to Do?", which was published in November 1968.
The Rand paper gave a historical summary of the UFO phenomenon, and talked briefly about the issues concerning the possibility of extraterrestrial life and interstellar travel, and they presented a few case studies and discussed the phenomenological content of a reported UFO sighting, and its reviewed hypotheses, and they concluded with a recommendation to organize a a sort of central UFO report-receiving agency and to conducting more research on the phenomenon.
Project Condign (UK, 1996–2000)
The British Ministry of Defence (MoD and it is widely known) in 2006 published something called the "Scientific & Technical Memorandum 55/2/00a" it was a four-volume, 460-page report, entitled "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK Air Defence Region", it was based upon a study by DI55 (a section of the Directorate of Scientific and Technical Intelligence of the Defence Intelligence Staff) which was code named "Project Condign". It discusses the alleged and British UFO reports received between 1959 and 1997.
The said report affirms that UFOs are in fact an existing phenomenon, but also points out that they present no threat to national defense, as in the cases of reviews by the US defence agencies and those of other nations.
The report further states that there is no evidence that UFO sightings are caused by incursions of intelligent origin, or that any UFO anomaly consists of solid objects which might create some sort of collision hazard.
D155 cessation of monitoring UFO's
Although the study admits of being unable to explain all analyzed alleged UFO sightings with some degree of certainty, it recommends that section DI55 ceases monitoring UFO reports, because they do not provide information useful for Defence Intelligence, typically the cost of such an exercise has always to be justified by way of governmental expenditure.
Black triangles and 'close encounters'
The report concludes that a small percentage of sightings that can not be easily or more readily explained are caused, perhaps by atmospheric plasma phenomenon similar to ball lightning; Magnetic and other energy fields produced by these "buoyant plasma formations" which are responsible for the appearance of so-called "Black Triangles" as well as having hallucinogenic effects upon the human mind and psyche, whilst inducing experiences of what are so-called 'Close Encounters',no doubt this concept inspire the major feature film "Close encounters of the Third Kind"!
Roswell UFO incident
One of the most famous UFO incidents of the 20th century was that of the "Roswell UFO incident".
The Roswell UFO incident, relates to an incident which occurred in mid 1947, when a United States Air Force surveillance balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell in New Mexico, prompting claims and alleging that the crash was of an extraterrestrial spaceship.
After an initial spike of rather avid interest however, the US military reported that the crash was merely that of a conventional weather balloon.
Interest as a result waned until the around the late 1970s when ufologists began promulgating a variety of increasingly elaborate and very widely popular conspiracy theories, and claiming that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed, and that there had been extraterrestrial occupants or 'aliens' which had been recovered by the US military who had then engaged in some sort of a cover-up.
'Project Mogul balloon'
And then In the 1990s, the US military published some reports apparently disclosing the real nature of the alleged crashed 'Project Mogul balloon'. As a result, the Roswell incident continues to be of avid interest in the popular media, and of course conspiracy theories
surrounding the event persist and are often rife.
"The world's most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim"
B. D. Gildenberg who served as the civilian meteorologist, engineer, and physical science administrator for the Holloman AFB Balloon Branch from 1951, has referred to the Roswell incident "the world's most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim".
Whilst there is no apparent concrete evidence that a UFO really did crash down at Roswell, many believers firmly hold to the belief that one did, and that the truth has been deliberately concealed as a result of a government conspiracy.
Pflock said, "The case for Roswell is a classic example of the triumph of quantity over quality.
The apparent advocates of the crashed-saucer tale, simply see fit to shovel everything that seems to support their view into the box which they have marked 'Evidence' and say, 'See? And they add .....
'Look at all this stuff. We must be right.'
Never mind the contradictions!
Never mind the lack of independent supporting fact of course, and never mind the blatant absurdities either!.
"Korff suggests that there are clear incentives for some people to promote the idea of aliens at Roswell, and that many researchers were not in fact, doing any competent work:"
The UFO field appears to be comprised of people who are willing to take advantage of the gullibility of others, especially the paying public.
Let's not pull any punches here or course. ....
Indeed, the Roswell UFO myth has been very good business for all UFO groups, publishers, for Hollywood, the also the town of Roswell itself, the of course the always hungry media, and to boot, those involved in the hot topic of Ufology.
The number of researchers who employ science and its disciplined methodology is surprisingly and also appallingly small.
B. D. Gildenberg
B. D. Gildenberg who has had some thirty-five years of continuous experience with 'Skyhook' operations and an additional twenty-two years as a consultant and who has authored or co-authored articles in many skeptical magazines, with his other background experiences including cryptography in the World War II Pentagon, work on the Pentagon Roswell reports, and involvement in astronaut tests prior to NASA, wrote there were in fact, as many as 11 reported alien recovery sites and that these recoveries bore only a marginal resemblance to the event as was initially reported in 1947, or as allegedly recounted later by the initial witnesses.
Some of these new accounts could well have been confused accounts of the several known recoveries of injured and dead servicemen from four military plane crashes which had occurred in the area between 1948 to 1950.
Other accounts could have been based on memories of recoveries of some mere test dummies, as suggested by the Air Force in their reports.
Charles Ziegler however, argued that the Roswell story has all the hallmarks of that of a traditional folk narrative.
Ziegler identified six distinct narratives, and a process of transmission via the storytellers with a core story, that was in fact created from various witness accounts, and which was then shaped and subsequently molded by those who carry on the UFO community's tradition.
Other "witnesses" however, were then sought out in order to expand the core narrative, with those who give accounts which were not found to be in line with the core beliefs and these being repudiated or simply omitted by the "gatekeepers."
Others then re-told the narrative in its new form as with any 'jungle telegraph'. This whole process would appear to repeat over time of course!
Alien autopsy hoax
Back In 1995, some film footage purporting to depict an alien autopsy and claiming to have been taken by a US military official shortly after the Roswell incident, was released by someone by the name of Ray Santilli, a London-based video entrepreneur.
The footage as is well documented, caused an international sensation when it was aired on the television networks around the world.
In 2006, Ray Santilli the London, England, based video entrepreneur, British musician and film producer, claimed that the said film was in the main, a mere reconstruction, but, however, Santilli continued to claim it was based on genuine footage, and now it is apparently or somewhat conveniently lost, but that some of its original frames that had supposedly survived.
A subsequent fictionalized version of the creation of this footage and its ensuing release, was retold in the famous comedy film entitled "Alien Autopsy" (2006).
Britain's equivalent to Roswell!
As documented and quoted by "Britain Explorer" who write:
Rendlesham Forest UFO: 1980
The Rendlesham Forest Incident is thee most famous of all , and well documented, of all UK UFO incidents.
'British version of 'Roswell'
It is often referred to as the 'British version of 'Roswell' and it took place during the nights of the 24th, 25th and 26th December back in 1980.
The encounter occurred in the forested area adjacent to the military bases of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge in the Suffolk area of England.
United States Air Force
At the time of the alleged incident, both bases were being used by the United States Air Force (USAF).
At approximately 3:00am on 26 December 1980 (Boxing Day), dozens of soldiers observed a number of rather unusual lights which appeared to be falling slowly into an area of the nearby forest to the east of RAF Woodbridge.
A patrol was dispatched sent to investigate and apparently discovered a metallic object that was illuminated with coloured lights.
As they approached the strange craft, it apparently moved away through the trees.
Nearby farm animals apparently appeared to be very disturbed and made frantic noises.
The site was then revisited the following day and found three impressions in the ground were discovered where the craft had originally been located.
Deputy Base Commander Colonel Charles Halt
Deputy Base Commander Colonel Charles Halt
The following night, some additional lights were observed in the same area and this time, were apparently witnessed by the then Deputy Base Commander, Colonel Charles Halt.
Orford Ness lighthouse
Sceptics claim,however, that the soldiers just saw the beam from the Orford Ness lighthouse which is located on the same line of sight as the alleged UFO.
Those involved, though, have pointed out that they could see the UFO lights and the Light house beam.
Another cover up?
A huge amount has been written about this alleged incident and with claims of some inaccuracies, such as mistaken dates and even an exaggeration of the story over the years.
However, what lends at least some credibility to this incident, is the fact that Colonel Charles Halt is alleged to have publicly made accusations of an 'official' cover-up.
Cobra Mist Project
One interesting point, that is omitted from most of the accounts of the Rendlesham Forest incident, is that to the east of the two air force bases, and also directly to the west of the light house, there was a top secret weapons testing facility, used by the 'Atomic Weapons Research Establishment' and later by the 'Cobra Mist Project'.
'Officially' shut down?
The site was 'officially' shut down back in 1971/72 but the decommissioning of the site and the management of large controlled explosions, took place as late as 1986 - and well within the time frame, associated with the Rendlesham Forest incident - how convenient!
So have you ever seen a UFO?
I have now experienced around 4 UFO phenomena, each one very unique and different from the others, all in different UK locations and I had others with me who also shared the same sightings with me, I lost an hour of my life each time I experienced these sightings.
I cannot explain the loss of time which I experienced, but I have tried to rationalize the sightings as perhaps a military facility testing prototype flying craft, perhaps for space exploration or some sort of means of facilitating surveillance in the areas around where these sightings were experienced.
I am happy to report that after each sighting I did however, find my psychic ability and my remote viewing capabilities, sigificnantly advanced and I was subsequently deemed to be the most credible witness to UFO phenomena by Tony Eccles a Ufologist from BUFORA, with whom I appeared on the "Billy Roberts" TV show here in the UK, in a televised interview about my experienced UFO phenomena, it was all great fun and I look forward to my next sighting with a balanced and open mind!
Forgive the corn - but I have to say that in the light of my experiences of UFO phenomena, I guess I am 'not alone" are you perhaps?!
If you experience a UFO, don't forget to phone home ET!
