• UFOs and the Attraction to Facilities.

    Carrington in the UK is probably best known for housing the Manchester United football training ground. It lies bang in between Flixton, Partington, Irlam, Davyhume and Sale which are the smaller towns found in Cheshire. As you come off the M62 motorway onto the Carrington slip road you are suddenly greeted by the immense sight of Carrington Shell refinery, along with Gas, Chemical and Electrical plants.

    It is this area that has been haunted by the UFO phenomena for many years. One of the first reported incidents took place during the spring of 1976. Five anxious shoppers were waiting for the local Carrington bus to take them to Sale centre. The bus arrived and they got on. A few minutes later one of the passengers turned to another and said, 'Can you see that, what is it'. Passengers turned to see a huge object, about the size of a football pitch hanging motionless in the air over a field next to the Shell refinery. They all described the object as rectangular in shape with large bright white lights that were set behind some type of grid structure. The craft seemed to be heavy set with metal girder type apendages. The object started to move silently and slowly over towards Irlam. Meanwhile, Sergeant Butts, and another police officer were travelling down Washway Road in Sale when their attention was drawn skyward. In the distance they saw a huge rectangular object moving away from them. When witnesses informed the police and showed drawings of the object they had done, police officers were surprised to find that they were identical to those Sergeant Butts and his accompanying officer had drawn.
    This is not the first time such strange rectangular shaped crafts have been seen. Just one year prior and again during spring, two witnesses in Kansas US saw a similar craft.

    As they crossed a cement bridge that spanned a local river, they pulled their vehicle into a farmer’s access road and parked up for a short time. They looked out at the fields alongside the bending river and suddenly noticed a strange looking light that was seemingly approaching them. As the object got nearer it seemed to slow down and hover above the tress. The craft was dark in colour and rectangular in shape. It had one red light and one green light positioned together in the center of the under part of the craft. The couple watched in amazement for around five minutes or so. The craft slowly moved to right and over the river and was completely silent. By this time they were getting a little scared so decided to quickly leave the scene.

    Carrington has also had its fair share of strange green balls of light seen flying through the night sky. Some have speculated that these are somehow attributed to the near by chemical and gas facilities and that they must be some type of ignited emisions. However, those that report seeing such things describe the balls as bright green, moving fast, leaving a green tail behand them and sometomes seen in groups of two or three, no sound, no odours and occasionally changing direction. Astronomers have remarked on these sightings and explained them away by saying they were simply some type of bolide. Of course, such meteorological phenomena does take place. In fact, in March of last year (2016) one such incident was witnessed by dozens of people from Hamshire. Its colour prompted people on Twitter to describe it as the St Patrick's Day meteor.

    Bright green in colour, shooting silently across the sky leaving a green coloured tail. As the BBC News reported: 'Dr John Mason of the British Astronomical Association said it was bright enough to be categorised as a fireball. He believed it was a piece of cosmic rock which almost certainly came from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. He said the green colour was caused by the meteor heating up the oxygen in the earth's atmosphere. "Meteors of this kind are not uncommon," he added, saying he estimated there was at least one a week over the UK'. The truth of the matter is, green fireballs or balls of light are not often reported, however, when one bothers to research these particular phenomena you find that they have been reported world wide and sometimes described to move with intelligence.

    When the United States Airforce's Project Twinkle investigated a similar reported phenomena in New Mexico in 1950, they noticed that where ever they set up their equipment, the UFOs moved to another location, suggesting that they somehow possessed or were guided by some form of intelligence. Many believe that some of these green coloured objects are in fact UFOs, and not to be mistaken for meteorological phenomena. Management at Carrington's Shell refinery stated 'We've no idea what the balls of light could be, we do know however, that they are nothing to do with escaping gases from the plant'.

    After numerous official sightings of strange green balls of light seen over Poland in 1949, Col Eustis of G-2 Intelligence, US Army, issued an extraordinary memo to the Director of Army Intelligence concerning the wild hypotheses that were spreading concerning the southwestern light phenomena. It read...

    Hq 4th Army Memo; "Unconventional Aircraft"
    To: Director of Intelligence, GSUSA

    1. The inclosed Summary of Information: subject "Unconventional Aircraft" (Control No. A-1917) dated 13 Jan 1949, is forwarded for your information and any action deemed necessary.

    2. Agencies in New Mexico are greatly concerned over these phenomena. They are of the opinion that some foreign power is making 'sensing shots' with some super-stratospheric devise [sic] designed to be self-desentergrating [sic]. They also believe that when the device is perfected for accuracy, the disentegrating [sic] factor will be eliminated in favor of a warhead.

    3. Another theory being advanced as possibly acceptable lies in the belief that the phenomena are the result of radiological warfare experiments by a foreign power, further, that the rays may be lethal or might be attributed to the cause of some of the plane crashes that have occurred recently.

    4. Still another belief that is advanced is that, it is highly probable that the United States may be
    carrying out some top-secret experiments.

    5. It is felt that these incidents are of such great importance, especially as they are occurring in the vicinity of sensitive installations, that a scientific board be sent to this locality to study the situation with a view of arriving at a solution of this extraordinary phenomena with the least practicable delay.

    6. It is further requested that this headquarters be informed of action taken on this and a previous report in order that reporting agencies may be advised.

    For the Commanding General:
    Eustis L. Poland
    Colonel, GSC
    AC of S, G-2

    Its clear from the memo above that such mysterious light phenomena was being considered to be secret experiments, or even a foriegn super-weapon of some sort and were often seen in the vicinity of sensitive installations. One could speculate that such a phenomena shows interest in certain facilities be them military, chemical or power stations. Its interesting to point out that you have a collection of chemical, gas and electrical facilities grouped together in Carrington.

    During the summer of 1994 I was contacted by a very distressed woman. She told me about a remarkable experience. She and two friends were travelling in a car down Carrington Lane near the refinery when she looked to her left and spotted a small triangular shaped craft slowly moving across the field. She shouted out for her friend to stop the car. They pulled over and jumped out of the vehicle and watched as the object started to move towards them. It was completely black in colour and was about 20 feet from the ground. As the object passed over a hedge a column of bright blue light dropped to the ground. She explained how the column of light did not defuse as it normally would when passing through a hedge. It was as if the light was solid. It kept the same shape, not like a torch. A torch, lights more of an area the further away it reaches. This column of light stayed the same size. They watched the object move silently over the road and across into the opposite field. The two witnesses were not too shore about the nights events. They said that the craft did not seem real in some way. Suprisingly, an investigation found no other witnesses. Surely there should have been more as this triangular craft eventually moved off to the east and over a local housing estate.

    It seems on occasion that just a handful of witnesses see such a remarkable incident when in fact hundreds of witnesses should have seen it. Even the huge object seen in 1976 by police officers and passengers on a bus ,only came to 9 in total, when in fact half the North West should have seen this thing. I suppose that's what makes the UFO phenomena so unusual. Such limited perception of events has been coined 'The Umbrella of Perception'. When only certain individuals witness a UFO incident when in fact there should have been multiple reports. Whatever makes these individuals perceive in this way is currently unknown, maybe this form of selected viewing is somehow associated with the UFO incident itself?

    In February of 1996, I inundated with UFO reports of large triangular objects. These stretched from Bowdon to Cholton and wait for it.... 'Carrington'. Amongst the witnesses were three police officers, 4 security officers from Cortall Chemicals on Barton Dock Road, Salford and at least 35 independent witnesses. All described the same objects. Large dark coloured, triangular shaped objects, with bright lights on them. Throughout Carrington 19 witnesses watched the two objects for over ten minutes before shooting off towards Salford. Again in September 2002 there were 11 UFO incidents reported. Numerous lights had been seen to dart off at high velocity, also a large triangular object had allegedly been seen by several witnesses whilst travelling on a coach.

    But by far the most impressive was the sighting of a large rectangular shaped craft. Four middle-aged witnesses saw a 'huge dark oblong' ... it was dark grey in colour, a kind of blackish metal covering. The witnesses could not be sure of what the front end was like but they thought it was a cone shape and on this was a huge pulsating red light. The light itself was the apparent size of the full moon. This pulsed at a slow rate about once every three seconds ... Most of the time the light was off. It came suddenly, grew bright, quickly faded and then came on about 3 seconds later. The witnesses said that the size of the thing was amazing. it seemed to take so long to pass over and it seemed ages before they saw the back of it. As previously, the sighting occurred close to the Shell Carrington refinery and as it approached the area it was shining a large floodlight, like those used at sports events, with a panel visible between the lights. The object slowly moved across the sky and disappeared off into distance. The witnessses were amazed at the fact that it had not been seen and reported by hundreds of people.

    July 25th 2009 at around 11:00pm. Four white lights flying in formation in a north westerley direction were seen by several witnesses. The objects were seen to be travelling faster than normal aircraft speed. They reported no noise as the objects passed over gracefully. On August 4th of the same year, a large ball of orange light seemed to come out of nowhere. Four witnesses reported watching the objects travelling fast then changing direction as it travelled to the East. On August 14th I was contacted by a gentleman who had this to say...

    ‘I was outside my house about 7:30pm enjoying the evening sky when I looked to the west and saw a very large, white light that was circular in shape and had some sort of search light. I believe it was around 2000 feet in altitude and about 10 miles away to the west. I watched for about 5 minutes and the object never moved. I first thought it was a helicopter with a search light, however a helicopter happened to fly past, and clearly was much smaller than what I was seeing. I also saw a red light much higher to the northwest that also never moved for the 5 minutes but had to be around 20,000 ft in altitude. Both objects remained for around 25 minutes before fading away to nothing’. They both simply turned off and vanished at the same time. Very odd'.

    More recently in 2015, two witnesses reported seing four green balls of light shooting across the sky at fast speed over the Windmill public house in Carrington. They were described as travelling in formation and producing a short green coloured tail behind them. There was no sound as they travelled over and were seen for only a few seconds as the witnesses lost sight of them as headed towards Flixton park area.

    Some researchers have suggested that such sightings may be a rare atmospheric condition known as Le Rayon Vert that occur before sunrise and shortly after sunset, when a green spot is visible for a short period of time above the sun, or a green ray shoots up from the setting sun. It is usually observed from a low altitude where the horizaon is in view, such as near or on the ocean. However, as you can clearly see from witness descriptions, this cannot be the case. They are regularly reported as green balls and not a green light or ray, and also, its highly unlikely anyone in the area of Carrington is going to have the capabilities of seeing the horizon.

    Whatever is going on in the location of Carrington, it seems to be a continious phenomena. A phenomena that may have some connection to the location. You could speculate that these craft are somehow interested or monitor the refinery or power stations in that location. Something that has similarly been reported many times all around the world. It would seem that UFOs may be attracted to such ficilities...

  • Do You Know, Should You Know UFOs?

    By John J Ventre

    There is a moment in everyone’s life when you have to decide whether you believe what you have been told about our existence. Humans have an uncomfortable need to explain and justify their origin. Since evolution doesn’t add up and there is no fossil evidence of one creature turning into another, where did we come from? Can your soul be taken? Where do all the missing persons actually go? Are we already a hybrid species being infiltrated or the product of creation? Why is this planet so haunted and religion so supernatural?
    When I was head of Public Affairs for UPS for PA-WV-VA, my boss from D.C. would always quiz us regarding political facts that we should know. He would invariably end up saying, “Do you know? Should you know?” Over the past 22 years, I’ve acquired some interesting UFO facts that I’d like to share with you from my book, Case for UFOs. If you are involved in this field, these are little known chronological facts you should know:

    1. There are over 1000 billion galaxies with an average of 200 billion stars each. That’s a 2 with 24 zero’s (200 billion trillion) for the number of stars in the universe. There are more stars in the Universe than grains of sand on earth. NASA calculates that there are 8.8 billion earthlike planets in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. There are more earths in our Galaxy than people on earth. 1000B x 8.8B = life is abundant in the Universe! But it is a huge leap of faith and assumption to say UFOs come from space. If you see a boat, did it come from under the ocean?
    2. Since dinosaurs existed for 150M years and 64M years before humans, are we dealing with intelligent evolved dinosoids in our hollow earth? If you believe in evolution, some dinosaurs stood upright with claws with opposable thumbs for tool making.
    3. Intelligent humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) suddenly appeared 30,000 years ago.
    4. Samarian is the oldest written language and Hindu is the oldest religion. Both date back to 6000 BC. The Samarian word Astra means terrible airborne weapon. Samarian and the Hindu Dzyan and Mahabharata text indicate someone was able to fly in Virmana (flying craft) and a terrible nuclear exchange took place approximately 8000 years ago in Mohenjo-Daro India. Skeletal remains found in that area are 50 times more radioactive than they should be.
    5. Carvings of 5 aircraft can be found in Abydos Egypt dating to 2600 BC. A helicopter, airplane and submarine are clearly seen.
    6. In 1347 BC, Pharaoh Akhenaton is told by a flying disc to build a new capital for Egypt and start a new religion worshipping the disc. His wife, Nefertiti, had an elongated skull.
    7. In 593 BC, Ezekiel described seeing and entering a wheel within a wheel with faces that moved with the object. In 1985, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan claimed to have the same experience.
    8. Alexander the Great encountered a UFO in 329 BC which halted his advance into India.
    9. In 216 BC, Hannibal sees ships in the sky during the battle of Cannae with men dressed in white on board.
    10. Earth is the only planet not named after a Roman God and the only planet that believes in God.
    11. Around 50 BC, Roman philosopher Cicero described the sky opening up and spheres appearing.
    12. Constantine saw a UFO on October 28 312 AD which looked like the sign of a cross and Constantine won his battle and established Christianity as the official religion.
    13. In 776 AD, Saxons attacking Charlemagne’s castle saw 2 red flaming shields over the church and withdraw in panic.
    14. Airplane trinkets made in gold dating to 500-1000 AD have been found in Central America. They were displayed at the Smithsonian until it was proven in 1996 by German engineer Peter Belting that they were aerodynamic and flew.
    15. Anasazi means Ancient Ones or Ancient Aliens. They believe they originated from inner earth as opposed to extraterrestrial. They mysteriously disappeared around 1300 AD.
    16. When the Cherokee settled Tennessee, they encountered white people with large eyes who could only see at night. No Indian tribe ever settled in West Va.
    17. In 1347 Florence Italy, low flying cigar shaped craft release a mist and drop diseased animal carcasses causing the Black Plague.
    18. Columbus’ journal on October 12 1492 documents a UFO prior to landing in North America.
    19. February 1, 1554, Nostradamus and 1000 witnesses see a bright burning rod in the sky for 2 hours changing directions and swaying back and forth.
    20. The first sci-fi novel was written in 1619 by Johannes Kepler. Sominium was about a man taken to the moon by a demon.
    21. The first recorded UFO over the mainland U.S. occurred at Charles River Boston, Mass in March of 1639 by Governor John Winthrop.
    22. The first reported crop circle was in 1678 in the U.K. and was referred to as the Mowing Devil.
    23. Jonathan Swifts 1726 Gulliver’s Travels got the moons of Mars size and orbit correct. They weren’t discovered until 1877! He also described a gigantic flying circular domed island named Laputa in the north Pacific.
    24. George Washington’s Journal of 1778 documents meetings with green skinned natives at Valley Forge who give him reconnaissance on British positions.
    25. On May 19, 1780, New England was covered by a cloud of darkness although the sky was cloudless and there was no eclipse.
    26. Was the 1819 Hudson Valley NY story of Rip Van Winkle based on a true abduction that lasted 20 years?
    27. The first known photo of a UFO was taken in New Hampshire in 1870.
    28. January 1878, John Martin of Dallas Texas describes a large dark object in the Northern sky as a “Flying Saucer”. First time this phrase was ever used.
    29. The word “star ship” first appeared in English in the 1882 book by John Newbrough entitled “Oahspe: the New Bible”. The 900 page book was written from visions from the spirit world during automatic writing.
    30. The first human mutilation takes place in White Chapel London in 1888. Similar “Phantom Surgeons” commit the cattle mutilations of the 1970’s.
    31. The first description of Greys was in the 1891 book by Ken Folingby “Meda: A Tale of the Future” and then in 1893 HG Wells book, “Man of the Year Million”. They were transformed humans not ET. In 1901, Wells describes Greys from the Moon in his book, “First Men in the Moon”.
    32. The first animal mutilation in the U.S. was in Vernon Kansas in April 1897 when a heifer was seized from the Hamilton ranch in full view of witnesses. The cow was found dismembered the next day on the Lank Thomas farm. The most famous mutilation was in Colorado on September 9 1967 when a horse named Lady was mutilated.
    33. The first UFO crash occurred April 19, 1897 in Aurora Texas where an airship struck a windmill. The strange looking pilot is buried in the Aurora cemetery. When MUFON launched an effort to exhume the body in 1973, the headstone was removed.
    34. The first alien transmission was received in 1899 by Nikola Tesla.
    35. An alienist is a Psychologist.
    36. The first space travel movie was released in 1902 by Georges Melies called “A Trip to the Moon”.
    37. Did Tesla’s1902 wireless transmissions from Waldenclyffe alert aliens to our presence?
    38. The 1908 Tunguska Siberia object that exploded took the same flight path or re-entry path that Apollo astronauts use. Was it a failed attempt and not a meteor?
    39. In 1917, the Red Baron of Germany reported shooting down a 100’ silver saucer over France.
    40. In 1917, 50,000 witnesses in Fatima Portugal witnessed 2 large shiny discs dancing in the sky which was as bright as the sun just prior to our “Lady’s” apparition and prophecies. The heat from the object dried their rain soaked clothes.
    41. Was the 1918 Spanish flu which spread quickly and killed over 50 million people a virus from outer space brought to earth in 1917?
    42. In 1918, Aleister Crowley made a satanic contact with a Grey named Lam. Crowley claims to have opened a portal that allowed Greys and demonic entities to enter our world.
    43. On March 4, 1918, the largest US naval ship ever to disappear was the USS Cyclops along with its 306 crew members. German records show no record of sinking the 19,360 ton ship and no wreckage was found in the Bermuda Triangle.
    44. On August 22, 1924, as Mars passed by earth at its closest point, many radio stations declared radio silence so they could listen for Martian broadcasts.
    45. In the fall of 1933, Ghost Rockets (craft) were seen flying over Scandinavia flying low with search lights on the ground. One third of the sightings occurred in hazardous weather and very low to the ground.
    46. A UFO crashed in the Black Forest of Germany in 1936. This was the impetus for the Nazi secret weapons program, Project Paperclip and the formation of NASA.
    47. The October 31, 1938 Panic Broadcast of the War of the Worlds by Orson Wells laid the ground work for the policy of non-disclosure of UFOs by the Defense Department today. The 1960 Brookings Institute study on the Implications of Extraterrestrial Contact referenced the Panic Broadcast in its recommendation to not disclose the truth to the public. The Panic Broadcast was repeated in Chile in 1944 and Ecuador in 1949 with similar results.
    48. Hitler’s belief in a pure Aryan race of blond hair and blue eyes did not refer to Caucasians. He referenced the Nordic giant Aryan ET race of Aldebaran and the Cryptoterrestrial Aldebaran’s living under earth’s surface.
    49. The 1941 Cape Girardeau Missouri case might have been our first UFO crash and retrieval incident involving a craft with 3 Greys.
    50. The February 25, 1942 Battle of LA was the first time our government fired on a UFO, denied their existence and used the weather balloon excuse. There were six civilian deaths that night; three from the shells and three from heart attacks. The Defense Department denied any record of the event. General George Marshall issued a memorandum on March 5, 1942 that a saucer was recovered off the coast and that it was not earthly. The memo was released in 1974. He also ordered the creation of a special Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit. A July 22, 1947 memo refers to the IPU after the Roswell crash and a briefing of Eisenhower and Kennedy. The IPU was deactivated in the late 50’s with all records transferred to the AF.
    51. The first Foo Fighter was reported by Lt Roman Sabinski on March 25, 1942 off the coast of Holland. They mysteriously seemed to respond to the pilots thoughts. Orbs, Foo Fighters and balls of light are all demonic entities. Lucifer was an angel of light and can masquerade as an angel of light.
    52. The 1943 Philadelphia experiment was called Project Rainbow and involved stealth and time travel. It is linked to the 1983 Montauk Project which harnessed the mind for remote viewing, telepathy and telekinesis.
    53. In June of 1944, both Allied and German anti-aircraft guns stopped firing at each other and both fired at an egg shaped craft over Loreto Italy.
    54. December of 1945, five bombers from Fort Lauderdale took off and disappeared in clear weather. A large Martin Mariner was sent up to find flight 19. They disappeared also. That’s six planes and 27crew that “vanished”.
    55. In 1945, Hitler ordered the killing of the 62 engineers and prisoners that worked on the Bell Project. When Hans Kammler disappeared in a JU-390, 100 U-boats (subs) also left for Argentina and U-530 and U-977 were captured hauling red mercury which was used in the Bell project. If you spin mercury at 50,000 RPMs and compress it to 250,000 PSI it glows, and defies gravity as it reduces its mass by 89%.
    56. Wind test models have proven there is no technical advantage to the saucer shape unless you need to spin an energy source in opposite directions like mercury.
    57. Argentina President Juan Peron issued 1000 patents to Nazi scientists.
    58. Ufologist Leonard Stringfield saw three tear drop shaped UFOs from the window of his C-46 right before landing in Iowa Jima in 1945.
    59. Ufologists say that the A-Bomb got their attention and they got ours but our first bomb test was July 16, 1945 followed by the use of two in Japan in August. As you can see, we had their attention long before that.
    60. Hanford Washington is the site of our first nuclear reactor and had four UFO encounters from 1945 to 1952.
    61. The first report of UFOs with rows of portholes or windows came August 1, 1946 by Captain Puckett near Tampa Fla.
    62. On August 11 1946, 200 Ghost Rockets were tracked on radar over Sweden.
    63. Sweden has the only European UFO Memorial at Angelholm Sweden where hockey player Gotsa Carlsson claims to have received natural cures from a May 1946 ET encounter and opened a Pharmaceutical company.
    64. June 1947, Einstein and Oppenheimer wrote a draft entitled “Relationships with inhabitants of Celestial Bodies”. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists created the Doomsday Clock.
    65. The first human MIB case occurred June 21, 1947 when UFO debris evidence from the Maury Island case was secured by Lieutenant Brown and Captain Davidson and shortly after the 2 officers entered their B-25 for Wright Patterson, the plane crashed killing both men. Three days later, pilot Kenneth Arnold reported 9 saucer shaped objects flying over Mountain Rainier.
    66. Roswell occurred July 7, 1947 and said to be a Mogul balloon or test dummies only test dummies were not used until 1952. General Roger Ramey who was at the center of the Roswell incident was never disciplined for the media attention. He was later promoted to a 4-star General.
    67. The day after the Roswell crash, New Mexico Senator Dennis Chavez had a private meeting with President Truman. Chavez then personally called the Roswell media outlets and threatened to pull their broadcasting license if they continued to report the crashed UFO story.
    68. Sarah Holcomb, the nurse involved with the Roswell crash, disappeared shortly after and couldn’t be located because she did not use her actual name. Her real name was June Crane and she transferred to Wright-Pat in Ohio and then moved to Washington State and died in 1998 but not before giving testimony to Kevin Randle, Tom Carey, Don Schmitt and James Clarkson that the crash was real, small bodies were recovered and material from the crash could not be cut or altered.
    69. A July 18, 1947 Air Force memo from Major General George MacDonald to J Edgar Hoover asks the FBI to get involved in UFO investigations. Hoover replies that he would first need access to the recovered disc.
    70. A digital enlargement of the memo in General Ramey’s hand revealed two phrases; “victims of the wreck” and “in the disk”.
    71. The July 1947 National Security Act created the CIA, National Security Council, Defense Dept. and Joint Chiefs of Staff weeks after the Roswell incident.
    72. The September 1947 Air Technical Intelligence Center report on flying saucers concluded that they are real. Project Sign was then formed to study UFOs.
    73. A memo by General Twining on September 23, 1947 stated that UFOs are real. Captain Ruppelt released the “Twining Memo” in 1957.
    74. Alfred Ledding designed a flying saucer after the Roswell crash and received a patent after he left Wright Patterson in 1952.
    75. The Oak Ridge Tennessee nuclear facility had UFO sightings nearly every year from 1947-66.
    76. The Roswell crash, Dead Sea Scroll find and official state of Israel all occurred in 1947.
    77. The first fatal UFO crash occurred January 7 1948 in Kentucky involving Captain Thomas Mantell. The crash resulted in no fire and there was no blood at the scene. Mantell’s body was quickly removed, never shown to family and buried in a lead casket.
    78. On August 5 1948, the Air Technical Intelligence Center of Project Sign concluded that UFOs were interplanetary in origin. Air Force Chief of Staff Hoyt Vandenberg ordered the report burned and suppressed 300 UFO reports and their conclusion due to National Security reasons. When members of Project Sign refused to change their conclusions, the project was dissolved.
    79. The Aztec NM crash of March 1948 was a gift to our military as an intact UFO made a controlled landing with nearly no damage after being shot down by our military and 16 alien bodies were recovered. This was a far more significant find than Roswell if true. The craft and bodies were taken to Hangar 18 at Wright Pat AFB.
    80. The first TV show about UFOs was “Captain Video” in 1949.
    81. In 1949, Project Grudge replaced Sign and was so named after the Air Force tried to pawn it off on the Navy and was forced to take it back by Congress. Project Grudge became Project Blue Book in May of 1952 after Pentagon Generals complained about Grudges debunking of UFO cases. Captain Ruppelt was then put in charge.
    82. James Forrestal was our first Secretary of Defense and was JFK’s mentor. He was against keeping the ET issue above top secret and said at a Staff meeting in 1949 that “he was going to the press”. He also told an associate Supreme Court Justice that, “Something awful is going to happen to me”. Fife Symington’s older cousin, Secretary of the Air Force Stuart Symington, met with Forrestal and escorted him to Bethesda Naval Hospital where he was confined for a mental breakdown. Two months earlier he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by President Truman. Confined to the sixteenth floor VIP level even though the hospital staff recommended a ground floor room for a man in his supposed mental state. Against Forrestal’s wishes, LBJ visited and couldn’t change Forrestal’s mind so when his brother threatened to check him out, they staged a suicide and threw him out the sixteenth floor window. Forrestal fought back and the window sill had numerous scuff marks on it but a tight noose around his neck tied loosely to a radiator ended his life. His regular guard was off that night and a hospital orderly was heard saying that Forrestal didn’t commit suicide.
    83. Project Twinkle was established in December 1949 to study the green fireball phenomenon which started in November 1948 over New Mexico. The green fireballs would not steadily drop but changed direction or maintained course. Dr. La Paz said they were artificial. The Project concluded they were natural. I believe NASA was testing copy alloy heat shields like the Kecksburg crash.

They went as far as suggesting that book reports by school students should not be accepted for a grade. They also recommended infiltrating civilian UFO groups. The purpose of the CIA is to use psychology and mind control to deceive. Any findings by the CIA are always predetermined before the investigation begins and supported by biased researchers who leave out key information. The CIA is the best in the world at what they do and therefore must never be allowed to operate on U.S. soil. The CIA will protect the best interests of the United States by any means and at all costs; just don’t get in their cross hairs! The Robertson Report was released nearly three years later than prescribed by law and indicated that 399 UFO reports were withheld or missing.
    102. On May 21, 1953, a craft and a brown skinned occupant were recovered in Kingman Az. Ray Fowler obtained a signed affidavit from the military witness. Four witnesses all gave similar descriptions of the recovery.

Ruppelt died at 37, six months after being pressured in 1959 into changing the conclusion of his book in a second edition to say that UFOs were not a threat to National Security. Ruppelt also became a critic of NICAP and UFO witnesses. It appears Ruppelt was pressured by the Air Force and his employer, Northrup. Ruppelt’s reversal was the opposite and equal reversal to Hynek’s where he became a UFO supporter after asking Donald Rumsfeld for the truth regarding UFOs since he had debunked them for the government for years and was verbally undressed by Rumsfeld. Hynek went on to form CUFOs in 1973.

UFO documents in 1978 exposed the fact that Major Keyhoe, Captain Ruppelt and Admiral Hillenkoetter and others were replaced on NICAP’s Board by CIA agents in the late 60’s. They paid themselves salaries and expenses that bankrupted the UFO organization in 1980 that did so much in the 60’s to offset the lies of Project Blue Book. It was also determined that there were another 257 CIA UFO documents and 18 NSA UFO documents withheld.

    Black helicopters are also seen in the area yet the government surely has the resources to fund their own research. Many are dropped within monitoring status of NORAD. The Gomez ranch near Dulce lost over 50 cattle. The cattle were being marked with a potassium-magnesium substance that could be seen with a black light at night. Are the helicopters actually built by ETs with ET pilots or are they a branch of our Military called the Night Stalkers who appease ancient deities in exchange for supernatural weapons? Or do “They” need genetic material to reconstruct themselves on this planet? Cattle DNA are only 80% similar to human DNA. Does this also explain the 4000 people a year in the U.S. that just disappears or is it the E.P.A. and a covert para-military team monitoring for radiation which was established in 1970? Since 1957, 100 families near the Nevada test sites routinely are monitored for radiation at U.N.L.V. Either the government is causing the mutilations or won’t investigate because they can’t.
    201. In the summer of 1979, a UFO dove and hit Warren Minnesota Deputy Val Johnson’s patrol car. He and the car were found 300 yards from the scene and his watch and the car clock were running 14 minutes behind. The car is on display at the local museum.
    202. June 14, 1980, 30 UFOs are reported over Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
    203. The Dec 1980 Cash-Landrum Texas incident and the Bentwaters U.K. UFO occurred within days of each other. The blacktop pavement where the Cash-Landrum car was located had to be replaced due to radioactivity. Betty Cash died exactly 18 years later on the same day as her December encounter with what was most probably an experimental nuclear powered Wasp II US military craft that was malfunctioning and being escorted by military Chinook helicopters. The Bentwaters radiation also measured 10 times higher than normal.
    204. Margaret Thatcher made this statement regarding the Bentwaters case, “You have to get your facts straight, there are some things you just cannot tell the people”. Some say the case was a military test of holograms and virtual reality technology.
    205. Beginning in the 1980’s, the missing fetus syndrome started showing up in conjunction with abductions.
    206. The largest number of UFO witnesses was in China on August 24, 1981 by over one million Chinese of a spiral shaped craft.

Doty showed Howe a Presidential briefing paper on UFOs in an attempt to flush out Howe’s sources in regards to her “Strange Harvest” documentary. Linda fell hook line and sinker for the bait.
    211. The first time authorities acknowledged a UFO over a nuclear reactor was during the Hudson Valley wave in 1984 when a 300’ UFO hovered over reactor # 3 on July 24 1984 at the Indian Point nuclear reactor.
    212. On March 21, 1985, the Hudson Valley FAA reported that arrests were made by State Police of persons flying in an illegal formation as the FAA responded to UFO reports by numerous witnesses. No arrests actually took place as the FAA participated in the cover-up. There were over 5000 witnesses over four years to these sightings.
    213. President Reagans diary dated June 11, 1985 noted that we had a space capacity for 300 crew yet we only had 5 space shuttles that held 8 each = 40. In 2001, 16 year old Gary McKinnon hacks into military computers and finds project Solar Warden which states that the U.S. has a space fleet consisting of 8 mother ships and 43 smaller craft and 300 personnel.
    214. The Pentagons 1985 budget listed the Aurora project which is a Mach 6 (4567 mph) SR-72 scramjet and is the likely source of the load booms that are heard.
    215. In January 1986, a 7’ wide red orb crashed into the hilltop of Height 611 in Russia. Lead balls and a black chemical laced film is discovered imbedded in the impact area.

    219. The Gulf Breeze Florida UFO wave started in November of 1987 and had hundreds of witnesses and centered on photos taken by Ed Walters in December of 1987. In 1990, a UFO model was found in the former home of Walters and used to discredit him; only the model was made from blueprints Ed developed in September of 1989 after the wave and photos were taken. Someone went through Walters’s trash at his new home and created the model and hide it at his former home next to a damaged water line that the new owners would discover.
    220. On March 4, 1988, a UFO landed on frozen Lake Erie and broke through the ice. A half dozen smaller triangular craft emerged and were witnessed by 2 coast guard officers and residents of East Lake Ohio. The coast guard filed a report but was not allowed by NASA to investigate further.
    221. In 1988, alien abduction insurance was first issued by Florida based UFO Abduction Insurance Co for $19.95. The Heaven’s Gate cult also had a $1M policy on each of its members against alien abduction, pregnancy and death.
    222. Three ARV- alien reproduction vehicle (back engineered saucer) were spotted on November 12, 1988 in a Lockheed hangar at the Norton AFB air show.
    223. In 1989, Bob Lazar described propulsion Element 115 at Area 51. He said it was given to us by ETs. In 2004 Element 115, Ununpentium, was officially discovered with the same properties. It is rumored that some of the bases activity has moved to the Dugway Proving Ground at Michael AFB in Utah which is surrounded by deadly biological testing fields.
    224. On March 14, 1989, MUFON investigator Don Ratsch recorded STS-29 say that they had an alien space craft under observance.
    225. On November 30, 1989, multiple witnesses saw Linda Cortile Napolitano abducted from the 12th floor of her lower Manhattan apartment and floated to a craft along with 3 ETs on a blue ray. Witnesses included United Nations Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar and his security guards. Budd Hopkins, who investigated the case, concluded that the ETs portray themselves as benevolent environmentalists but are here for a hybrid breeding program to benefit themselves although they are not inherently evil or benign.
    226. Thirty employees of the British Aerospace Marconi company which worked on SDI technology died mysterious deaths in the 1980’s.
    227. The March 31, 1990 Belgium UFOs were picked up by 5 different radar tracks, chased by F-16’s and also consisted of eye witnesses verifying that the craft accelerated to over 2000 MPH in a second and turned at over 40 G’s at low altitude which would kill humans.
    228. On May 4, 1990, Mikhail Gorbachev said, “The UFO problem is real and we should approach it seriously and study it”. A month earlier, the Soviets announced the formation of the Soviet Ufological Commission.
    229. On January 24, 1991, a UFO was tracked on radar in the Persian Gulf by 3 U.S. and 2 British ships that all five fired at once at the UFO and shot it down.
    230. In 1991, Danny Casolaro uncovered evidence that the Octopus organization was developing advanced biological viruses at the underground Dulce NM base. He believed UFOs were a cover story for the advanced weapons. Casolaro committed suicide by slashing his wrists.
    231. In November 1991, Gorbachev dissolved the KGB whose “Blue Folder” UFO files became public. More than 40 cases confirmed the UFO reality.
    232. Even after the December 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, U.S. military and black project spending continued to climb due to the UFO threat.
    233. In 1992, Congress ordered NASA to search the Universe for radio signals. This started Project SETI which was abandoned in 1993 due to cost and became a private venture. Most scientists support SETI’s ridiculous search for radio signals but reject MUFONs investigation of sightings.
    234. The 1992 MIT conference on Abductions established that regressive hypnosis does work.
    235. During Black project testing, all video cameras are turned off. All footage taken at Area 51 and from satellites is of real UFOs.
    236. John Mack’s introduction to alien abduction came in 1990 through a meeting with Budd Hopkins. In 1992, Dr Mack was asked to evaluate Air Force and Police Officers who had UFO sightings and it became a life’s passion for him. Mack was hit by a car in London and killed in 2004. John had an Eastern philosophical spin to his work and a distain for materialism and the out of harmony destruction of the environment. John wrote that the abduction was a forced consciousness expansion by showing us we have no control which destroys our ego. The abduction brings us closer to our spiritual roots while the alien longs to experience our emotions. The aliens are subtler and permeate our culture from the bottom up. John believed the hybrid program was at the center of the abductions and was not evil but about the preservation of life on earth.
    237. At the May 1992 Bilderbergers meeting, Henry Kissinger said “If Americans were told an outside threat threatened our existence, people will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. Individual rights will be relinquished”.
    238. In 1994, Project Delta examined 473 cases over the past 2500 years and concluded that UFOs have not changed significantly over the years.
    239. The 1994 Alexander UFO Religious Crisis Survey concluded that religious institutions would not collapse as the Brookings Institute concluded in 1960 and that humans are not as fragile as their leaders believe.

    241. The first alien implant was analyzed on January 6, 1995 from the earlobe of Betty Dagenais who died in 1989 and willed that her earlobe be autopsied. She was told in 1986 by her alien abductors that she would die if she tried to have her implant removed.
    242. In 1995, 48 year old New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff partitioned the General Accounting Office for the Roswell crash memos. Their reply was that the memos had been improperly destroyed. These memos were permanent records. Congressman Schiff passed away from fast acting cancer three years later.
    243. In 1995, Laurance Rockefeller supported the “Unidentified Flying Objects Briefing Document – The Best Available Evidence” and sent a copy to the White House. Rockefeller paid for regular meetings of the Starlight Coalition, a group made up of former intelligence and military men interested in UFOs.
    Rockefeller funded a plan to establish contact with aliens by signaling them with powerful halogen lamps. Rockefeller held a UFO conference at his ranch in Wyoming in August 1995 which was attended by the Clintons. The attached letter proves the Clintons were present.
    244. The Collins Elite is a branch of the C.I.A. that investigates the paranormal and UFOs. They concluded that there are no UFOs. The NSA version of the Collins Elite is the JASON Society, named after the quest for the fleece or “truth”.
    245. Varginha Brazil, January 20, 1996, red eyed foul smelling humanoids with small horns are discovered and captured. A fire officer dies after handling the body of one of the creatures which are turned over to the U.S. for examination.
    246. In 1996, Long Island UFO Network founder John Ford accused Suffolk County Republican John Powell of covering up a UFO crash and of being dishonest. Powell was friends with Gov. Pataki and helped get him elected. Ford was arrested for planting extremely low level radioactive radium laced toothpaste in Powell’s home which Ford denied and he was committed to Bellevue Mental Hospital where he remains today. Ford acquired radioactive radium to test his radiation detectors for the UFO investigation. Ford was held on his knees with a gun to his head by Suffolk County police officers as his dogs were beaten in an attempt to gain a confession from Ford. Powell was eventually found guilty of racketeering. Powell had allowed illegal toxic dumping where the UFO or military craft crashed. Powell was afraid the UFO investigation would reveal his illegal dumping and orchestrated the Ford arrest. The person who set up and entrapped Ford was a police informant with a criminal record. Ford had pleaded insanity out of fear of losing his pension as a Suffolk County Court Officer if convicted of a crime. Powell served less time for toxic dumping than Ford for making a threat with a non-toxic substance that he had in his vehicle for weeks.
    247. This case is less about Ford being an Ufologist than about where the UFO investigation took Ford; to the site of an illegal toxic waste dumping scheme by a high profile politician. Ford became collateral damage of an illegal cover up.
    248. According to NASA’s Kepler telescope, there are more earthlike planets in the Universe than dollars in our national debt.
    249. Were the flares dropped by the Army in Phoenix March 13, 1997 a cover-up diversion for the large triangular UFO that was seen two hours earlier? The only problem is that a FOIA to Luke AFB regarding flares dropped came back from the Air Force that no flares were launched. No training flares have ever been launched before or after this incident in this location. Gov. Symington debunked the sightings at a press conference and waited 10 years before disclosing that he actually saw the large triangle.
    250. In 1997, Lord Hill-Norton stated that UFOs were of satanic origin and he helped form the UFO Concern Group which issued their findings.
    251. A UFO was shown on CNN over Baghdad on December 16, 1998 and was hit by Iraqi forces and captured and brought to the Qalaate-Julundi research facility. Some say this was the real reason for the Iraqi invasion in 2003.
    252. On August 2, 2002, Todd Sees went for an ATV ride in Montour Ridge Pa and went missing. He was found the next day completely emaciated of blood wearing just his underwear. A boot was found a mile away in the top of a tree. Three farmers reported a UFO in the area. Family members were not allowed to see the body and it remains a police cold case today.
    253. In 2004, Nevada Gov. Bill Richardson asked for files related to the Roswell crash.
    254. The Vatican’s Chief Astronomer Reverend Gabriel Funes in 2008 reiterated Father Balducci’s 2001 comment that there is life in space and that they are our brothers and most likely have fallen from grace just like us. In 1957, Father Connell made the same statement.
    255. A simple breakdown of close encounters are; a CE1 is a strange low level light in sky; a CE2 is a craft that leaves trace evidence; a CE3 is an entity; a CE4 is an abduction; a CE5 is a human initiated contact like SETI that invokes a response, a CE6 is death, a CE7 is a human-alien hybrid. CE1-3 was based on Hynek’s 1972 book, “The UFO Experience”. We need a new level separating physical from altered state abduction.
    256. It is now believed that if you experience a CE 2 or 3, you have already been abducted or are about to be.
    257. All abductees have opened a door by showing interest in the unexplained through horoscopes, tarot cards, psychics, Ouija boards, evolution and/or New Age beliefs, the occult, mysticism and eastern philosophy, secret societies, witchcraft, Ufology and science fiction.
    258. Why does the message abductees receive only try to discredit Jesus Christ and not the prophets of other religions? Christians oppose a one world government, religion and ruler.
    259. Some people have the Oz factor which is the ability to communicate by telepathy.
    260. The U.N. lists UFO as a codified term in its encyclopedia.
    261. Rods are life forms similar to what Kenneth Arnold believes he saw.
    262. Alfred Webre coined the term Exopolitics.
    263. In 1994, MUFON N.C. Ufologist George Fawcett created a list of 25 characteristics that repeat during UFO cases. Number 6 listed boron as a trace element. Boron was highlighted in lab reports as elevated during the 2008 Denise Murter investigation in Bucks County Pa.
    264. The TR-3B is the alleged Astra craft that the Air Force developed after the 1976 Stealth Fighter and is a triangular craft that defies gravity. Its description matches many of the 2008 Bucks County sightings reports.
    265. The National Press Club has hosted public hearings on UFOs in 2001, 2007, 2010 and 2013 where Generals, pilots, scientists, officers and a Governor signed affidavits to testify in front of Congress on UFOs.
    266. The November 11, 2006 O’Hare airport UFO was seen by 12 employees and recorded conversations with the Tower exist discussing the incident even though the FAA and United Airlines denied the incident and claimed a hole-punch cloud caused the incident. Hole-punch clouds occur at 20,000 feet and can only form when air temperature is below 32 degrees. Air temperatures during the O’Hare Airport incident were 53 degrees and the hole formed just hundreds of feet in elevation.
    267. 2007-12, The Pentagon paid $22M a year for the Advanced Aviation Treat ID Program to investigate UFOs.
    268. 2008 started with the Stephensville UFO sightings over President Bush’s Crawford Texas ranch confirmed by radar and the year ended with over 200 sightings in Bucks County Pa that resulted in radar and trace evidence. In both cases, the FAA tried to block the investigation.
    269. In 2008, the U.S. Air Force decided it would no longer accept UFO reports and refers the caller to NORAD who is not subject to FOIA’s.
    270. In a 2008 interview with James Oberg of NASA, he said that Air Force personnel would routinely pose as NASA agents on UFO investigations. Is this the source of many MIB encounters? UFOs have been seen over cemeteries. Some say MIBs are reanimated corpses.
    271. The 2008 Peters ET Religious Crisis Survey concluded that the seven major religions would not collapse if ET visited earth.
    272. When my TV debut occurred in 2008 on UFOs over Earth, my mom watched Desperate Housewives instead!
    273. In June 2010, the U.K. decided to close its UFO desk and retain reports for only 30 days in order to avoid FOIA’s.
    274. NASA decided it will not release pictures from space for 6 months until after they are analyzed or scrubbed as many former NASA employees charge.
    275. Half of all Defense Satellites face outward.
    276. Many Asian and South American countries have official UFO reporting centers.
    277. On July 7, 2010, China’s Xiaoshan airport shut down and delayed 18 flights and 2000 passengers due to a UFO.
    278. On Sept. 11, 2010, China’s Baotau airport shut down for one hour due to a UFO. June 10, 2013 China Air 757 is struck by something. A similar nose strike and damage is documented Oct 27, 2017 of Delta FL 8935 carrying OKC NBA team.
    279. Pilots report only 5% of their UFO sightings to the FAA and say that UFOs usually approach when dark out. Pilots see UFOs as often as they strike birds. Only .4% (point four) of the 6000 cases MUFON receives yearly is from pilots. Obviously, pilots are discouraged from reporting UFOs.
    280. According to Russian UFO files, 50% of UFOs occur in Oceans and 15% occur in Lakes.
    281. The FEMA approved Fire Officers Guide to Disaster Control has a chapter (13) on UFOs.
    282. Of the 6000 cases MUFON receives each year, 3.6% are reported by military or law enforcement.
    283. The Air Force Space program has been funded higher than NASA since 1982. The AFSP receives $8.8B a year and this is where the “real” space program occurs.
    284. The U.S. and U.K. approach UFOs through their Department of Defense or Ministry of Defence whereas many other countries look at it as an air safety issue and investigate UFOs through their FAA or as research as in the French studies.
    285. Radar is not configured to pick up anything that doesn’t look similar to a plane. If it is too big, hovers, travels too fast or has no transponder the FAA system will paint it as weather.
    286. Magnetism for propulsion doesn’t work because it is strongest at the equator and weakest at the poles.
    287. UFOs that exceed the sound barrier do not cause sonic booms and some appear to be concentrations of energy that can change size and shape.
    288. What if governments are not hiding UFO secrets but their lack of knowledge of them?
    289. There will be no disclosure if some ET’s are complicit with a branch of our government and don’t want disclosure. How can you trust disclosure from a government that has been working with aliens?
    290. French pilots are required by law to report UFOs. The French police investigate UFOs and will arrest you if you perpetrate a hoax. The GEIPAN in France trains pilots on how to report UFOs.
    291. Since gravity bends light, zero point energy may move faster than the speed of light.
    292. UFOs are based at the poles because they prefer the weather, we have trouble flying in intense polar storms and the intense radiation from the Van Allen belt at our equator is not present at the poles.
    293. The internet is as dangerous as the printing press was 400 years ago . . . to the truth.
    294. Men want to see the craft, weapons and decide whether they can take “them” in a fight. Women are interested in telepathy, the message and emotions of contact!
    295. What if the Universe is a hologram; a reflection of the Milky Way Galaxy and not really expanding or even there?
    296. It’s not the UFO that is the problem, it’s the people.
    297. All birds and animals on earth are in tune with nature. They flee prior to an earthquake, tsunami etc. All except humans who are not in tune because we are not from here.
    298. Have you ever tasted beer made from crop circle barley? A cereologist studies crop circles.
    299. Alpha Centauri is only 4.3 light years away. A species travelling at half the speed of light can get to earth in less than 9 years.
    300. The medical billing code for injury by spaceship is E845.0.
    301. We’ve named the unexplained to be paranormal, but we have never explained it.
    302. It has to be realized that earth is on the outer edge of the Milky Way galaxy and a perfect way station and launch point for missions beyond our galaxy.
    303. The Star of Bethlehem has never been identified by astronomers.
    304. In order to study religion, you do not have to first prove the existence of God.
    305. Disclosure must come from the religious community because Jews, Christians and Muslims view ET as demonic but only Christians can stop these entities through the name of Jesus.
    306. God, the Devil and Angels are de facto extraterrestrials (to us).
    307. Jesus said to Thomas, “the Fate of the Universe depends upon these three words: Caulacau, Saulasau, Zeesar”. The words do not have any meaning in any known language (on earth).
    308. Death is the ultimate abduction.
    309. U.S. national security would be threatened by open discussion of the UFO secrets it holds.
    310. Although the Kenneth Arnold sighting took place on June 24th, many Ufologists have also died that day including Frank Scully, Frank Edwards along with Edward Bryant and Richard Church all at the same World UFO conference, Robert Charroux and Jackie Gleason.
    311. U.S. missing persons reports have gone up by six times since 1980 with 90,000 people never found. In 1980, there were only seven demonologists in the U.S. and six were priests. Exorcism has increased from a handful prior to 1990 to over 1300 a year today. Around this same time, the alien abduction changed from entities in uniform on ships to Greys lurking in the corner of your bedroom after midnight.
    312. Brazil has the greatest concentration of injury encounters with UFOs.
    313. March 20 is Alien Abduction Day. . . . . . .
    314. Aug 3, 2016 marked the first time a private company was granted permission to land on the moon by the DOD and State Dept. Fla based Moon Express will make the 2017 landing.
    315. Although Bigfoot has been seen with some UFO cases. The primate version of Bigfoot is most likely a Neanderthal that has survived and possibly evolved or mated with other primates like apes.
    316. There are 1071 operational satellites in space. We seem to be waiting for number 1072 but what if “It” does not originate from space?
    317. Most cattle mutilations, military bases and best UFO cases are along the 37th parallel. Is that evidence for aliens or military covert operations?

  • Was Kecksburg a GE Mark 2 Reentry Vehicle?
    By John Ventre and Owen Eichler

    The Mufon Journal appropriately printed this article in December of 2015; Open Minds made no mention of it. All Pittsburgh media outlets covered the story except the Tribune Review but there was inexplicably virtually no national coverage.

    On December 9, 1965 at 4:47 pm, something navigated through our airspace and made a semi controlled landing in Kecksburg Pennsylvania. For me, the entire story has been about how it descended over Canada and made a right turn before Cleveland and a left turn before Pittsburgh and slowed down before minimally “crash” landing in rural Kecksburg and avoiding population centers (like Flight 93). The legend has grown to include one witness who saw a scaly, three fingered hand come out of the top of the UFO, similar to the ending of the 1953 movie “War of the Worlds”, to seeing an alien body on a gurney at Hangar 18 at Wright Patterson Air Force base alongside a cone shaped craft.
    I was contacted in February 2015 by Owen Eichler in regards to his theory that the December 9, 1965 Kecksburg UFO incident was potentially a crash and retrieval of a GE Mark 2 reentry vehicle (RV) with a northern polar launch on December 7, 1965. Owen said he has spent years researching his theory and believes he is correct. The GE Mark 2 RV has never been mentioned as a possible candidate for Kecksburg. This object was a spy capsule that was kept secret until 1991. I posed a few questions that were significant to the case:
    1. How did the object turn, slow down and perform a controlled landing? Owen said the GE reentry vehicle had an internal weighting control system for stability and guidance using the coanda effect to glide. Owen also said this was not a NASA project.
    2. Why would the military show up in such force for a GE reentry vehicle? Owen said it was used for in-space identification of orbiting space craft and may have contained a Radio Isotope Thermal Generator (RTG) that needed to be recovered in order to control and prevent a radiation leak. The first nuclear power generators were used in 1961. It was also a secret spy satellite of the Soviet Union.
    3. What is the explanation for the writing or symbols on the sides of the object? Owen said it was the result of identification welding on the reentry vehicle because there were numerous launches. One symbol, the five pointed star with a circle in the center, is an Army and Air Force symbol. The RV was also attached to the Atlas rocket at the base where the symbols were.
    Although I always root for the UFO, Owen got my attention and as the Pa State Director for the Mutual UFO Network, I feel obligated to offer his theory as a possible explanation for the Kecksburg UFO even though I still had questions as to whether GE, NASA or the Air Force can confirm where the loss of the reentry vehicle landed? I contacted experts in the field for a GE phone contact but they didn’t have one. I also attempted to contact GE and Lockheed Martin since Lockheed took over the Mark 2 design program and would have the records, but with no luck. I also wondered if the GE Mark 2 didn’t collide with Cosmos 96 since the Russians said the Cosmos 96 probe struck something in space. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the event, here’s what Owen, who witnessed the in-flight characteristics of the UFO, had to say:
    "It was a clear day on December 9, 1965” explains Mr. Eichler, "Myself and several other neighborhood boys and girls were playing baseball in an open area with a wide field of view. As catcher, I saw a bright multi-colored flaming object and called to my playmates to look. I was 13 years old at the time. The predominately green glowing object with wisps of yellow, purple and orange colors was moving from northwest to southeast in my little village of Shafton near Irwin, Pennsylvania. As I had been spending flying time in a small Piper Cub with a neighbor, I was amazed at how low and level the object was moving. I also had spent many hours at a local airport and was familiar with speed and altitude of small airplanes. The object seemed to have a speed somewhat greater than that of small aircraft and a low altitude. In addition, as the object was moving along a path parallel and above the Pennsylvania Turnpike Bridge in the vicinity of the Irwin/North Huntingdon interchange, I can still remember checking the speed against the distance as I was instructed when flying in small aircraft. As I found out later in life, the object travelled an additional 17 miles to Kecksburg and did not significantly lose altitude. But most of all, I was fixated on the predominantly green color of the object." Mr. Eichler discovered later in high school chemistry that the element copper glows green when incinerated in the open atmosphere. The connection of copper and the object he saw in 1965 put him on an investigative path of the origin of the object for the next 45 years. Moving ahead in time to the present, and after many hours of research, Mr. Eichler has determined the object was an American reentry vehicle designed and manufactured by the General Electric Corporation designated as the MK2 blunt body reentry vehicle.
    “During the late 1950s, many reentry vehicles were designed and flown by the United States and the USSR for the original goal of delivery of nuclear bombs. Various American types of designs were tested with the so called "blunt body" design as the design of preference. The blunt body design made use of introducing the reentry vehicle into the atmosphere with a large air-pushing event resulting in a buffering of the atmosphere to dissipate heat from the reentry vehicle. The American design used a section-spherical design while the Soviets used a full spherical design. The American design incorporated controls and jets to "steer" the reentry vehicle while in orbit whereas the Soviet version may not have incorporated such steering controls. Also, the American design used an internal moveable weighted control system for maneuvering in dense atmosphere closer to earth enabling the reentry vehicle to climb, descend and make turns.

    (Figure 1- GE Mark 2 prototype reentry vehicle)

    (Figure 2- RV prior to electroplating which covered seams)

    (Figure 3- Notarized deposition of witness Jerry Betters)

    “Referring to Figure’s 1-3; note the shape of the General Electric MK2 reentry vehicle. Also note the internal components such as a recoverable data capsule system and a trajectory control system. The shape of the vehicle resembles the description given by eyewitnesses as that as an acorn. Also depicted are the control jets used to maneuver while in orbit. When in controlled level flight in the atmosphere, the blunt end of the vehicle encountering the forward oncoming atmosphere can be tilted by the use of the trajectory control system to change the leading edge of the vehicle thereby changing/steering the path of the vehicle. The vehicle then in effect can rise or fall or turn left or right. This in flight capability was demonstrated by the object seen by many observers. And, during the final moments of the event when the reentry vehicle landed in Kecksburg, an eyewitness, Frances Kalp, remarked about seeing a "four star" object. The "four star" reference most likely was the four control jets used to steer the vehicle while in orbit and possibly used to change the descent speed. Note the similarities between the prototype, the actual MK2 RV and the hand drawn sketch/deposition by musician Jerry Betters who had never seen a MK2 RV or any other space craft up close. As explained below, the MK2 had various capabilities for delivering many payloads such as a nuclear device. Note the funneled end of the MK2 RV. Provisions are made to eject a data capsule, or possibly a camera/film canister for later recovery.”

    What about the predominantly green color of the object? Mr. Eichler states, "I was able to confirm that the blunt end of the object, the heat sink, was made of copper with minute alloying metals such as beryllium. Reports of green fireballs seen in the southwestern state of New Mexico occurring during the 1950s involving early test flights of reentry vehicles were followed up by “Project Twinkle” ground surveys identifying copper residue over and above normal levels in the low-flying flight path of objects seen flying over the area. Copper heat sinks sound counter-intuitive to protecting a reentry vehicle from heat but the physics of the blunt body design demonstrate that there can be ample heat protection. As a note of record, later RV heat rejection techniques used an ablative material; a design that allows for heat absorption and subsequent stripping of the ablative material from the reentry vehicle to release heat. The ablative design allowed for a completely different physical shape than that of the MK2 reentry vehicle."

    For a military perspective, Mr. Eichler added, “This was a cold war project based on the A4 German rocket, commonly known as the V2, designed by Werner Von Braun. The MK2 was the first reentry vehicle to be used to carry an atomic warhead carrying up to 1.5 megatons of TNT equivalent at that time. An historical item of note is WWII Germany and Mr. Von Braun conceptualizing an A10 multi-stage rocket with an atomic warhead to send via air mail to New York City.

    “The MK2 reentry vehicle was put atop the United States' Thor and Atlas rocket vehicles. Many of these weapons were deployed in various parts of the world with designations of IRBMs (Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles). For example, under "Project Emily", up to 60 of the Thor IRBMs were deployed to Great Britain in the early 1960s. The United States sent the missiles and a training team from Vandenberg Air Force Base, here in the United States, to Great Britain. There were other deployments as well. Referring to figures 4 and 5, note the nose of the Thor rocket with provisions to receive the MK2 RV. Also note the general size of the installed MK2 as compared to the Air Force personnel standing below it.”

    (Figure 5- Mark 2 Reentry vehicle installed at top and ready for lift off. Symbols can be seen on the first black band on the nose which is the RV.)

    (Figure 6- Mark 2 Reentry vehicle installed, markings on base)

    Mr Eichler further stated, “The deployment of the Thor MK2 armed nuclear missile was eventually recalled from Great Britain as a result of advancing technology and the vulnerability of the MK2 reentry vehicle to intercepting enemy aircraft as the MK2 was slow moving and could be shot down. However, during the 1960s the United States Atlas Rocket was phased in to deliver the MK2 reentry vehicle. The Atlas SM-65 rocket gave some advantages that the Thor rocket was lacking. For example, much longer range and orbiting capabilities. The Thor rocket could only deliver a sub-orbital payload. With the Atlas Rocket, the IRBM became an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). With the introduction of the Atlas rocket also came smaller and more efficient reentry vehicles. So, then, because there were so many of the MK2’s made, possibly over 2000 units, they became useful in other areas of space research and development. Many MK2 vehicles were used to monitor atmospheric parameters in support of the United States moon landing. Another remarkable program employed by the United States was Program 437. The latter program, akin to President Reagan's "Star Wars" initiative, focused on using a nuclear explosion in space to disable an enemy's satellite with Electro-magnetic Pulse waves.

    “I also have a suspicion that the strange markings around the base of the Kecksburg UFO may have been caused by the superstructure of a second reentry vehicle being welded to the base of the MK2. After the remnants of the superstructure burned away upon reentry of the MK2 in the atmosphere, all that would be left would be illegible weld spoils in various unintelligible configurations when seen by a common bystander. And, in addition, the base of the MK2 is the only place of attachment of a superstructure as the rest of the MK2 was buried in nose of the launch vehicle and was made of thick 316 alloy stainless steel sheeting, copper cladded and overall electro-coated with platinum. Also, the strange markings may be identification marks created with a welding stick and a welder to provide positive identification as to the particular model (MK2A, MK2B, and MK2C) of the RV and its payload”.

    The possibility of the reentry vehicle that landed in Kecksburg of carrying a nuclear warhead is remote. Witnesses stated they saw people dressed in what they describe as full body suits and carrying something resembling what is commonly called a Geiger counter. Examination of Mr. Eichler's research demonstrates many reentry vehicles of the 1960s needed a power source. Mr. Eichler says, "Early power sources utilized batteries, with AC-DC inverters or nuclear thermopiles. The power source of record was a Radio-isotope Thermal Generator (RTG). The generator uses a nuclear material that generates heat. The heat, in turn, heats a thermocouple assembly to generate electricity to power communications and control systems. In the early models, Plutonium-238, Curium 244 and Strontium 90 were used as the heat source. Factually, the authorities would be looking to verify the structural integrity of the reentry vehicle was not breached as a result of the impact potentially releasing radioactive contaminants from the RTG.”

    All of Owen’s proof can be found by searching the internet. I also found this information online:
    The Corona program was operated by the CIA with assistance of the Air Force and was used to spy on the Soviet Union and China beginning in June 1959 and ending in May 1972. Program 437 turned the PGM-17 Thor into an operational anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon system; a capability that was kept top secret. The Program 437 mission was approved for development by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on November 20, 1962 and was based at the Johnson Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. Program 437 used Thor missiles and added booster engines to achieve orbital flights. Eighteen more sub-orbital and orbital Thor launches took place from Johnston Island during the 1964–1975 periods in support of Program 437. In 1965–1966 four Program 437 Thors were launched with “Alternate Payloads” for satellite inspection from Johnson Island. Two of the four payloads were designated as APX-1 and APX-2 both of which carried cameras. These launches were evidently an elaboration of a proposed system to allow visual verification of an in-space target before potentially destroying it. These flights may have been related to the late 1960s Program 922, a non-nuclear version of Thor with infrared homing and a high explosive warhead. Care was taken to avoid even the appearance of aiming toward a Soviet satellite. These were U.S. Air Force missions that evaluated reusable, maneuverable, re-entry vehicle designs that might be able to fly to a precise landing point on earth.
    There were four launches planned from Johnson Island in 1965; three are listed as successful. The first one on December 7, 1965 does not list an outcome. On December 7, 1965 at 19:29 Military Standard Time (MST), the 10 ADS Air Force crew launched Thor missile Number J8-2299 skyward on an interception azimuth of 153. The target was SPADATS object Number 613; an expended Atlas Agena rocket body. Interception occurred 8:18 minutes after launching following normal lift-off, booster separation, flight path assumption, and payload operation. The camera-bearing capsule registered a miss of .56 nautical miles from the programmed standoff distance of 3.2 nautical miles. All payload functions were performed normally up to separation except for film cutting and sealing operations. The failure was academic; however since the ejected film capsule was stated as never recovered and was visible at 19:45 heading for the ocean. The outcome of this mission is a prime candidate for the Kecksburg UFO although it is listed as a sub-orbital launch!
    There would have been a five hour time difference from Johnson Island to Kecksburg Pennsylvania due to daylight savings time in 1965. That would put the reentry vehicle loss at 12:45am eastern standard time on December 8th. Was it actually an orbital launch and could it stay in orbit for over 39 hours? The answer is yes: it could take two hours to three days to come down from low earth orbit. For example, the December 9, 1965 launch from Vandenberg AFB of a Thor Agena-D took two days to recover after an erratic attitude. More complete analysis is required of the RV/rocket separation which altered descent characteristics since the Air Force said they lost track of it at 7:45pm on December 7th. There is no question that the MK2 RV was capable of extended orbital capabilities and controlled landing.
    I attended the 50th anniversary UFO festival in Kecksburg in July 2015 where witnesses told their story and did not remember the details very well like the fact that it was glowing green while descending. I also analyzed the testimonials on Stan Gordon’s Kecksburg DVD created in 1998 which was more accurate. Although the Air Force said that there were only three Air Force personal on site to recover a meteor, numerous civilian witnesses verified that there were as many as 25 armed military personnel present. Project Moon Dust was in place at that time and the response was consistent with this project’s recovery efforts. Witnesses also said, “It glowed green in the sky, it was a burnt orange color on the ground, the site may be radioactive, there was an arcing blue light coming from the woods, it looked like Egyptian hieroglyphics were welded on a bead in different designs around the base and that four guys in NASA moon suits took a four to five foot box into the area”.
    There have been a number of theories over the years to explain Kecksburg:
    1. A meteor.
    2. Extraterrestrial craft.
    3. Cosmos 96 Soviet satellite recovery.
    4. Nazi Bell project or some other government experiment.
    It makes sense that the December 7, 1965 GE Mark 2 launch in the Pacific was tracked on radar. This explains the military response within 30 minutes to the small rural town of Kecksburg. The copper heat shielding would glow green, the stainless steel would turn a burnt orange color, and the technicians on site would wear proper radiation suits and would carry the correct size lead box for a radioactive power source. They may have had to cut the power source out with a blow torch and walked it out of the woods like the arc of the covenant. They could not risk a radiation leak when exiting a residential area. It was equally as important not to divulge we were spying on Russia. (As a side note, the 1968 zombie classic Night of the Living Dead was based on radiation from the Kecksburg crash causing zombies).

    Since NASA has eliminated the Cosmos 96 probe as the Kecksburg UFO by confirming it came down 13 hours earlier, after our exhaustive research, we are only left with the Nazi Bell Project which Polish author Igor Witkowski made known in 2000, a Mark 2 failure or a real extraterrestrial UFO. Since NASA was ordered by a Federal court to turn over its files on Kecksburg and they responded that the file box was lost, it is doubtful that NASA will confirm or deny our GE Mark 2 theory. Without confirmation from NASA, GE, the Air Force or the Navy, we have the most scientific explanation for Kecksburg but can only add the GE Mark 2 reentry vehicle to the short list of an extraterrestrial craft that maneuvered in the sky and crashed or a government spy reentry vehicle that minimally crash landed. We believe a GE Mark 2 RV landed in Kecksburg. What do you think? After 50 years, we respectfully request that military witnesses involved in the recovery from NASA, the Army and Air Force come forward and provide details and confirmation of the incident.
    Although this article graced the cover of the December 2015 MUFON Journal and the Pitt Post-Gazette, the Pitt Tribune Review made no mention of this evidence and the reporter involved kept referencing funding of the Kecksburg fire department through its summer UFO festival. “All the news that’s fit to print”?

    After this article was published, detractors reported that December 7 was a sub-orbital launch that couldn’t land in Kecksburg, yet the 1958 Pioneer 1 was sub-orbital and took 43 hours to come down. Others sited data on the MK1 and didn’t even read this article. The Air Force lied that it was the meteor over Detroit that evening, lied that it only had three personnel there, and lied that they never tracked it on radar while also losing the evidence box. So why would you believe it was sub-orbital when the insertion of these three letters (sub) covered up this event. Any prior orbital launch could also have accounted for the event since the GE Mark 2 characteristics absolutely match the described event! There were also eight different Mark 2 type capsules and rest assured that some were secret projects. What I have learned, and known for a long time, is that there are no experts in the UFO field!
    Owen tried to pursue with the C.D.C. his interest in whether there was an increase in Spinal Bifida after the crash due to radiation. Once he mentioned the UFO incident he received no cooperation. He was baffled by that. I told him no one is going to take him serious if he mentions UFOs. Owen did find out that a key witness who is now in his early 70’s, has multiple cancers including on his hand which may have been caused by getting too close to the object.
    In August of 2016, I was contacted by a man in Maine who said that a 21 year Army Officer who was at Roswell and in charge at Kecksburg gave the order to destroy all records of the Kecksburg case making any future documents suspect. This is why when the Sci-fi channel sued NASA there were no records to be found. This officer was Lt Colonel Gordon H. Rawson (1922-2013) of Paris, Maine. Rawson was told it was a Soviet satellite but he didn’t want an international incident so he destroyed the records. We finally have confirmation that the Air Force lied about only having three Air Force personal on site. There is no mention of Kecksburg by Blue Book as they list 16 Pa cases among their 701 unexplained cases. Odd that they didn’t investigate Kecksburg.
    There were also numerous NIKE Zeus missile launches to shoot down an MK2 as we started early anti-ballistic tests. Any one of these could’ve sent an MK2 off course towards Kecksburg.
    We also discovered that some launches added a booster rocket and used Thiokol rubber fuel, a polysulfide rubber binder that gave improved performance and a smell of sulfur. It opened up the possibility of a second crash site, of the booster, in Mammoth Park.
