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.

World UFO Sightings December 2012 [part 1 of 2]

Posted by dandare on December 2, 2012

ufosa-hot-topic

Many 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.redalienketchup

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).

There 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.

Back Online…once again

Posted by dandare on October 11, 2009

ufo online soapI apologise for not posting on here, since the end of June, but several things intervened, but i am back again, to blog about all things UFO related.

PD*22591058Thanks for the e-mails that have come in, and i admit that many have not been replied too..sorry. Thanks also for all those enquiring when i will be blogging again….and no i have not been abducted, or subjected to MIB interrogation….emm, yet.

I am not sure how i will try to catch up, from July up until now. Probably put up blog posts for the months concerned, and add too them, when i can. I will i’m afraid have to lump UK and World sightings together…

The most significant thing to happen since i’ve been away, is more UK UFO Files being released..in August see here for the file download details. They now charge for them, but you can, if you have missed the downloads (when they were free) go here and download for free. You can also download the other UFO files from the previous releases too…very useful.

I leave you with a few videos i have stumbled upon whilst i have been away, that might be of interest.

UK UFO sightings [June 2009] updated regularly [part 2 of 2]

Posted by dandare on July 4, 2009

ufo online undergroundI will try and keep this up to date, with all information from the UK.

Please check back from time to time, as this will be updated regularly…If you see something that i have missed, please contact me (thanks)…..

There has been an explosion of UK UFO activity this year, mainly due to the Sun (tabloid UK newspaper) who think they are the UFO EXPERTS, seeming to print anything remotely to do with UFOs (with no facts/sensationalism and mostly no TRUTH). Unfortunately, this now seems to be spreading to other National newspapers. This month it seems to be The Telegraph’s turn at Ufology wisdom.

Are they eventually going to make UFOLOGY a complete joke?

So, many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually alot 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.img_front_pg1

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). There 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.

UFO sightings ***From the UFO archives***No 1

Ensign of Belgian Air Force

I would like to start a new feature, that of UFO sightings from yesteryear…with a brief description on this blog, and links to relevant websites, with indepth discussions.

To kick us off i will start with:

1 The Belgian Triangles

belg89Dates: November 1989 – April 1990 [Belgian Authorities recieved over 2500 reports on Triangular UFOs].

The RBAF (Royal Belgian Air Force) decided to co-operate/work with SOBEPS (Local UFO Research Group= Society Of Belgian Studies of Celestial Phenomena), with SOBEPS reporting from ground level, whilst RBAF would attempt to track and intercept.

They never intercepted them, as the UFOs were far too quick for the F-16s.

English: Belgian Air Force F-16 at the Wadding...

English: Belgian Air Force F-16 at the Waddington International Air Show 2011 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Triangular UFOs- what were they? Explanations for this, were that the USAF, may have been testing its stealth aircraftF117A fighters and B-2 bombers.

However, F-16s can fly faster than stealth aircraft, so why no interceptions, and why were the UFOs more agile.

Project BLUEBOOK was shut down in 1969 and, as unbelievable as this may well be to you, there isn’t one word that mentions Operation OXCART or the mysterious base called Area 51.
So, as you are once again led to believe there are not saucers that hover over our cornfields or aliens-on-ice high above the Nevada desert, you’ll be the smartest guy in the class if you don’t lose sight of the fact that, according to the CIA and the American government, a place called “Area 51” has never, ever, existed.

UK UFO sightings [April 2009] Updated regularly

Posted by dandare on April 12, 2009

ufo-online555551

I will try and keep this up to date, with all information from the UK.

Please check back from time to time, as this will be updated regularly…If you see something that i have missed, please contact me (thanks)…..

There has been an explosion of UK UFO activity this year, mainly due to the Sun (tabloid UK newspaper) who think they are the UFO EXPERTS, seeming to print anything remotely to do with UFOs (with no facts/sensationalism and mostly no TRUTH). Unfortunately, this now seems to be spreading to other National newspapers.ufo

Are they eventually going to make UFOLOGY a complete joke?

So, many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually alot 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.

peterboroughjan09

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). There 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.

BBC “ Dr Who link to UFO sighting rise ” ** (all links with 2 stars relate to same article)

Nick Pope mentions that the increase in UK sightings is partly to do with chinese lanterns becoming more popular in this country; true.

However, he then starts going way off track with comments like :

dandare_avatar_createdMr Pope, who continues his research into the phenomena of UFOs on a private basis, said he believed the revitalisation of the Doctor Who franchise had made people more open to seeing UFOs ” (extract from article).

He then states that it is being covered on Newsnight (bbc2 indepth show on the news) and the SUN (which he works at). First off, i do believe that chinese lanterns have had a large impact on UFO sightings, but Doctor Who has not….this is total rubbish.

But hang on there is more …. he mentions:

“One case that springs to mind is the recent incident at RAF St Athan when a police helicopter was apparently nearly hit by a UFO.
“Another near collision happened last year over Birmingham when the pilot had to take evasive action to avoid hitting a UFO.
“This is why their investigation is important”
” (extract from article).

I’m afraid again i have to question these sightings, that THE SUN took a particular interest in. Where are the facts, and the data for this……..They usually never seem to follow up with any more evidence, but just carry on saying its a definate UFO sighting…..or they have selective data of a sentational kind if they do follow up!

This should be retitled ” Media are the reason for UFO sightings rise
