Robert Hastings • Articles — Citizen Hearing on Disclosure

Posted by dandare on May 20, 2013

ufo sightings 5555Although I was repeatedly invited—pestered, actually—by Stephen Bassett to participate in the hearing, I chose not to lend my name and credible research to the event. Over the past 40 years I have interviewed more than 140 U.S. military veterans, regarding their involvement in UFO incidents at nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those individuals participated in my September 27, 2010 “UFOs and Nukes” press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live:

A history of UAP research at CNES – CNES

Posted by dandare on May 5, 2013

A history of UAP research at CNES

From Gepan to Geipan

In 1977, the CNES Director General set up the Gepan* research group to pursue studies initiated by a CNES engineer as a personal project.

Its mandate was simple: conduct research into UFOs (as they are commonly called). The group’s work was overseen by a scientific advisory board.

Gepan continued its research until 1988, when it was superseded by Sepra**. As well as UAPs, the new unit also monitored artificial atmospheric re-entries, i.e. debris from space missions falling back to Earth.

In 2000, Sepra refocused on the original mission of UAP research, albeit with limited resources. In 2001, the Director General requested an audit to help decide on the future of this CNES department.

However in 2005 there was a:

New unit, broader mandate(cnes.fr)

On the basis of the audit recommendations, UAP activities resumed with a
new CNES unit called Geipan, set up in 2005. This unit reports to
senior management at the Toulouse Space Centre and is overseen by an
independent external steering committee, which guides and monitors its
work.

Information is made available to the public here (in french).

World UFO sightings May 2013 [part 1 of 2]

Posted by dandare on May 3, 2013

ufoonlineshowtimeMany of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually a lot of information missing.

Please keep this in mind as you view these postings from the local and national press.

I’m afraid many also fail to follow-up on their initial leads, and many reports just remain forgotten.

Some incidents could be UFO balloons (please see:  http://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/05/19/ufo-balloons-what-are-they/ for more details, from a previous article).

ufo-1There are also many other IFOs ( Identified Flying Objects they could be as well).

However, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research.

Also for real-time UFO map from MUFON see here

Please be patient whilst i catch up on information/links/articles…. thank you.

Tiny ‘alien’ skeleton: Atacama Humanoid has human DNA (Photos) (examiner.com)

600px-ovniUpdate: The tiny “alien” skeleton found in the Chilean dessert a decade ago, has human DNA. Scientists say the six-inch skeleton dubbed the “Atacama Humanoid,” is not proof that extraterrestrial life or ET exists as “Sirius” suggested. Is the South American mummified creature a mutation?

The mystery behind the mummified remains began 10 years ago when the small skeleton was found.

A word to those who have not run into Steven Greer before, have a look at this article on him Steven greer . Basically, he’s in it solely for the money and it shows quite nicely what he has been up too.

First 1908 ‘Tunguska event’ meteorites believed found (NBC News)

Description: Trees were knocked down and burne...

Description: Trees were knocked down and burned over hundreds of square km by the Tunguska meteoroid impact. Note: This image is public domain, from the Leonid Kulik expedition in 1927 Source: http://www.astro.uwo.ca/~jlandstr/planets/webfigs/impacts/slide1.html (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In June 1908, a mysterious blast occurred above the remote Russian forests of Tunguska, Siberia, with 1,000 times more power than the Hiroshima bomb, flattening trees over an area roughly the size of Tokyo.

The most widely accepted theory is that a huge asteroid or comet (not a UFO or chunk of antimatter) exploded as it entered Earth’s atmosphere. But with just one death, few witnesses and no fragments nor any impact craters to study, scientists have been left to puzzle over what exactly caused the so-called Tunguska event.

Witnesses 1,200 Miles Apart Describe Same Giant Triangle UFO (Huffington Post)

index-php3Two UFO witnesses about 1,200 miles apart seemed to describe the same triangle-shaped object in reports two hours and two time zones apart on April 27, 2013, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

At about 9:59 p.m. ET, a Tennessee witness driving west along Highway 70 near Pleasant Hill reported watching “a large, triangular-shaped” object hovering over power lines in MUFON Case 47032.

The witness was returning from a grocery shopping trip in Crossville when the object appeared just above the vehicle.

Shark-UFO-1864886Around the same time, little Billy Orsmond lost grip of his prized 6ft-long helium-filled shark toy and watched it fly into the air, never to be seen again.

Billy’s dad, James, 25, of Baillieston, said last night: “I saw the Record story and just about fell over.

“The report said the object was blue and yellow and silvery. I just thought, ‘Aw naw’ because that was the colour of Billy’s remote control shark and it went missing round about the time of the incident.

“Billy only had the toy for a couple of weeks. It cost about £15 from Argos but the shark was big and would probably look bigger in the sky. We’d just had it re-filled with helium before this incident happened. At the time, I thought that was why it flew out his hands and into the sky.

UFO sighting over Tannum Sands reported by reader (The Observer)

ufo online3aA READER has reported seeing a bright orange light over the Gladstone/Tannum Sands area on Saturday night.

In a Your Story submission on The Observer’s website, the reader said it appeared as a very bright orange light moving quite fast at first, then becoming almost stationary before moving off again.

“It came back several times and moved the same way each time. We saw it three different times, as did our neighbours and some friends in Gladstone. Definitely no ordinary aircraft or satellite.

“Then it gradually faded as it moved further away. Incredible sight!”

The Grand Strand has long had more than its share of UFO sightings.

The creators of Myrtle Beach’s newest attraction, “Encounters: UFO Experience”, claim there’s a good reason, besides this area’s 14 million tourists, why they decided to locate it at Broadway at the Beach.

“Myrtle Beach is a hot spot for sightings,” said Brian Bouquet of Intergalactic Brands.

Spectacular satellite re-entry caught on video (slate.com)

It’s with some relief I can say that’s not a fleet of alien spaceships bent on either enslaving the human race or possibly eating us. It’s not even a swarm of meteors: what you’re actually seeing there is a satellite dramatically breaking up as it re-enters the Earth’s atmosphere. And it’s even been identified: it was the Cygnus mass simulator, a payload lofted into space by the Antares rocket in April!

Strange’ lights lanterns for cancer sufferer ( stuff.co.nz)

8663766_600x400The release of “wish lanterns” at a birthday celebration for a Christchurch cancer sufferer may explain “strange” lights seen in the skies last night.

The lanterns were released in Fendalton last night at a gathering for Danelle Wakefield.

Wakefield has been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma cancer, which is a rare cancer normally found in children, and not adults.

Despite aggressive chemotherapy on a tumour in her shoulder, Wakefield has been told she has between two months and two years to live.

At a birthday party held for Wakefield last night, her family let off some “wish lanterns”.

A poster on the event’s Facebook page said it was “a beautiful moment” and that attendees joked that someone would “think they are aliens as they floated around the sky”.

BBC News – Airliner ‘had narrow miss with UFO’

Posted by dandare on May 1, 2013

The bbc has an article mentioning that:

A passenger aircraft had a narrow miss with an unidentified object over Glasgow, a report has revealed.

The Airbus A320 was making its final approach to Glasgow Airport on 2 December when an object passed about 300ft underneath it.

The pilot of the aircraft said the risk of collision with the object, which did not show up on radar, had been “high”.

via BBC News – Airliner ‘had narrow miss with UFO’.

Also from news.com.au it mentions Airbus comes close to crashing with ufo over Glasgow .

the Sun has Passenger plane seconds away from collision with UFO .

Stv.com says  Passenger plane involved in near miss with UFO near glasgow airport .

There are quite a few reports from the media worldwide about this event, which took place on 2nd December 2012, many of which are just repeating the same information.

Not sure what to make of this sighting, however for now it is definately a UFO (it would help if we knew what type of radar was being used though-i believe there is both primary and secondary radar). Hope certain media do not try to hype this up too much, but i will not be holding my breath.

UPDATE  the daily mail has slightly more information here .

article-2317156-052A84AC0000044D-595_634x421Despite an investigation, the UK Airprox Board – which examines reports of near misses – could not explain the ‘blue and yellow’  object which passed under the  Airbus 320.

The incident happened on December 2 last year over Baillieston, 13 miles east of Glasgow Airport, at around 3500ft.

more information on primary and secondary radar can be found here .

The Tornado Case (1990)

Posted by dandare on April 28, 2013

In the late 1990s, the UFO Working Group Netherlands (UWN) received an audio cassette with a recording of radio communications between three British RAF Tornado jet fighters and Dutch military air traffic control. The UWN released this recording on the previous version of this web page on December 17, 2005. In the recording, pilots of two Tornado jet fighters report to Dutch military air traffic control that they are observing a large unknown flying object. From the communications we gather that the aircrews (the Tornado is a two-seater) were unable to identify the object and that the military air traffic controller was unable to find it on radar.

Why the UFO Community Must Step Up Its Game | David Reneke | Space and Astronomy News

Posted by dandare on April 27, 2013

If you follow UFO investigations in the media and wonder are the reports solid, well investigated and as clear as they seem then consider there may be a problem area you need to know about.

Arguably, two of the greatest problems inherent to the field of Ufology today are that approaches to studying UFOs are 1) not keeping up with available technology and 2) are perhaps, at times, being influenced negatively by technology more so than in ages past. I’ll expound further on precisely what I mean by this in a moment, but first I must pose the very necessary question: will the serious study of UFOs continue to live up to the challenges of our rate of technological growth, or will the study of more advanced intelligence than our own become hindered by these advancements?

UFO sighting (Milton Ulladulla Times)masthead-main

The incident happened on Monday night of last week and was the second time in a week Mr Preston had seen UFOs.

The previous Wednesday he had been using his telescope to watch Venus about 10pm, when he saw two objects moving across from the north-north-west sky.

“I got a pretty good view of them,” he said.

“They kept going and going and going.”

Then on the Monday night he saw three objects “clear as a bell” flying low over Lake Conjola from the east-north-east between 9pm and 10pm, he said.

“They virtually came over my house,” he said.

UFO video shows fireballs in Cork, Ireland (openminds.tv) the same sighting will have ** after the heading.

A witness recorded approximately three minutes of video showing multiple fireball UFOs in the sky above Cork, Ireland.

The witness, YouTube user Naktis Ireland, uploaded the video to the video sharing service on March 16, 2013. But the title of the video indicates the incident occurred in December 2012. The video shows multiple bright balls of light appearing out of nowhere, and drifting slowly through the sky. The low-quality video is extremely jittery, but the witness explains:

I am sorry for the quality, it was filmed with a mobile phone. Ironically I had a Cannon EOS 500D with 300mm lens at home that could of filmed in 3000×3000 but I was afraid that they would disappear by the time I got my camera as this is a very rare opportunity so instead, used a phone to record as much as possible.

Mr Philip decided to speak out in the hope others may be able to corroborate the sightings.

The first sighting, he said, was of a bright white light travelling much slower and lower than a normal plane.

“It was so smooth and silent, just gliding through the air,” he said.

In the second sighting, Mr Philip said a similar light was travelling northwest before making a sudden 40-degree turn and then disappearing.

“I can’t explain it, it was awesome and I hope I see some more,” he said.

It began when he was taking photos of clouds to test out a new camera when he noticed a “smudge” that, when enlarged and enhanced, “had some structure to it, suggesting it could be some sort of craft in the sky”.

He says since then he has identified a dozen different UFOs including round, square and saucer-shaped craft, posting the photos to his website wispyclouds.net for extra-terrestrial buffs and sceptics to ponder.

The UFO sighting that convinced a Government minister – Telegraph

Posted by dandare on April 19, 2013

was nicknamed 'saucer sam'

It is one of the most tantalising ever official accounts of an encounter with a UFO – deemed so credible it even convinced the government minister who investigated it.

Now, for the first time, the sighting of a flying saucer by an RAF fighter pilot and the subsequent high level inquiry it prompted can be revealed.

The sighting occurred in 30 July 1952, when Flight Sergeant Roland Hughes was on a training flight over West Germany in a de Havilland Vampire FB9.

There have been so many odd reports and people joining in the UFO fray that the topic has evolved into a mishmash of insane detritus.
