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

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...

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.

***Third instalment of Uk UFO Files by MOD available to download NOW (march 21st 2009) ***

Posted by dandare on March 22, 2009

secretfileThe third instalment of the UFO files, covering the years 1989 to 1993, are available to be downloaded online from the MOD, at the National Archives website ( seven to be made available to download over a 3 year period).

The Ministry Of Defence will make these available to be downloaded for the next month only…. then a fee will need to be paid to download them after this date. So please go and download them as soon as possible please ( i am however, working on placing the files on a downloadable site, to make available to all, but this is a work in progress).

ufo-headerThe download page is available from http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ .

The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents covering the years 1987–1993. If you want to find out more about close encounters over Heathrow Airport, alien abductions, stray satellites – and what the UK Government thought of it all – then this is the place to be. The files are in PDF format ” (extract from article).

A brief description of the files can be seen here .

I will also add media + video  links to this as and when available.

” (extract from article).

Dr David Clarke’s post ” National Archives release UFO files #3 ” (posted 21st march, 2009)

What’s more, it’s clear from the scribbles visible on these papers that details of the individual sightings they contained were entered into a computerised database which DI55 were secretly using to search for patterns in sighting data. (See DEFE 31/176/1, pages 337 onwards). I hope to post more on this topic later ” (extract from article).

Telegraph ” Revealed: How the government probed Britain’s greatest UFO mystery ” (posted 21st march 2009)

ufo_1370335c The files also show that officials had planned to study systematically a sample of more than 100 unexplained sightings in the hope that they might be able to provide a rational explanation of what was happening. But defence chiefs subsequently blocked the move for fear it would be a public relations disaster ” (extract from article).

Telegraph “ UFO alien sketches include banana with dangling limbs ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

ufoflying-banana_1370525c The drawings include a blue banana-shaped object with dangling human-like arms and legs, seen in London in 1989.

Heraldsun.com (Melbourne) ” British defence ministry briefed on UFO sighting” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

The Guardian ” New UFO secrets are revealed in MOD files ” 22nd march, 2009)

The most intriguing incident involving such a craft occurred at 9pm on 4 August 1990, at Calvine, a remote hamlet near Pitlochry in Scotland. According to the brief details released by the MoD, witnesses saw a diamond-shaped UFO hovering for about 10 minutes before it disappeared upwards at high speed. During the incident, Harrier jump jets were seen making a number of low-level passes. Colour photographs reveal both the UFO and at least one of the jets ” (extract from article).

The Times “ Is that a flying saucer? No, it’s a stealth bomber“(posted 22nd march, 2009)

At the end of the cold war, the Ministry of Defence was worried that America was developing mysterious planes but not telling its closest ally. Staff at department DI55 of the Defence Intelligence Staff logged and investigated hundreds of sightings by pilots, air-traffic controllers and private individuals who believed they had seen an alien presence ” (extract from article). Also see Times archive here .

Scotland on Sunday ” Close encounters of Pitlochry kind ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

” (extract from article).

The Australian “ UFOs or the old spy in the sky trick? ” (posted 22nd march,2009 )

The files settle a long-standing UFO conspiracy theory on the death of American fighter pilot Captain William Schaffner during an exercise over the North Sea in 1970. To the distress of his family, some have claimed that officials covered up a sinister incident possibly involving a UFO. The files include the RAF’s official inquiry into the crash, which concluded Schaffner’s Lightning fighter had brushed the sea during a delicate, low-speed manoeuvre. When he tried to eject, the cockpit canopy remained stuck because of poor maintenance, and Schaffner was believed to have drowned ” (extract from article). Similar facts to those above.

The MoD said it recorded each sighting to help ministers answer questions from MPs in Parliament – but they were always kept on paper. Notes from March 1988 show that the plan for a full computerised database was spiked. A memo sent to staff said it “contravened” statements from ministers saying UFOs did not pose a threat to the UK and resources would not be diverted to investigate incidents ” (extract from article).

The Sunday Mercury ” UFO pilot death accidental says Ministry Of Defence ” (posted 22nd march, 2009)

Softpedia.com “ UK release archive UFO files ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

uk-releases-archive-ufo-files-2Around 1992, on a coastal road in Louth, Lincolnshire, several persons witnessed what they termed a UFO sighting. Reportedly, many of them stopped their cars, and stepped out of the vehicles in order to analyze the large, triangular object that was looming overhead, and which sported three lights on its body. When the crowd got too big, the craft simply zipped away, at more than 500 mph, towards the Northwest ” (extract from article).

Daily Mail ” Aliens? No, just the pentagon playing with its latest toys ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

article-1163909-040a9e49000005dc-93_468x516Their theory was that our American allies had been building and testing stealth aircraft and spy planes without telling us.
In fact, in many cases they were probably right.
A series of simple, almost childish drawings produced by some of the witnesses have just been released from secret files
” (extract from article).

Daily Mirror “ UFO buzzed RAF jet ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

The star ” Defence chief’s ignoring UFOs ” (posted 23rd march, 2009)

UK UFO sightings [March 2009] Updated regularly

Posted by dandare on March 16, 2009

ukufosightings2

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.

dandare_avatar_created1Are 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.

morecambeufojan09Some 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, it must be said that everytime the MOD release UFO sightings, the press have a field day.

Skeptics stur up Ufology….Again! but what does it achieve?

Posted by dandare on December 21, 2008

ufosa-hot-topicIt recently came too my attention through the Daily Grail and UFO Chronicles, that Skeptics have been attacking Ufology, especially Stan Freidman and Chris Rutkowski.

For the relevant articles please see below:

Skepticblog.org ( posted november 26th,2008 ) ” Abducted by logic ” Phil Plait.

DailyGrail.com (posted november 27th, 2008 ) ” Astronomers and UFOs

Skepticblog.org (posted december 4th, 2008 ) ” Stanton Freidman doesn’t like me ” by Brian Dunning.

Uforum.blogspot.com ( posted december 10th, 2008 ) ” UFO debunker strikes again ” by Chris Rutkowski.

Skepticblog.org ( posted december 10th, 2008 ) ” UFonies ” by Phil Plait.

DailyGrail.com (posted december 12th, 2008) ” Skeptologists attack Ufologists

DailyGrail.com ( posted december 15th, 2008 ) ” Friedman on the Skeptologists

Skepticblog.org (posted december 18th, 2008 ) ” The top UFO debunker? Really? ” by Brian Dunning.

The whole affair seems regretable, and absolutely pointless, and i’m afraid instigated by the Skeptologists.

 ufo-sightings-5555I must point out from the start, that everyone should have an open mind, and question everything, and  enquire. Also they should not blindly say that every UFO sighting is extraterrestrial, or that they are all fakes….. (yes the majority can be explained, but there are those that cannot, so why not attempt to solve them? ).

The skeptologists decide to put the boot (or rather the DM) in, and attack UFOlogy: especially targeting Stanton Friedman and Chris Rutkowski. 

The DailyGrail.com article (posted december 12th, 2008) ” Skeptologists attack Ufologists ” covers all that was said well, so i will not repeat it again.

600px-dead_end_sign_svgWhat i object too, is the way they go about doing this: it really is quite sad to see them in operation…. what exactly are they trying to prove? and what is their aim? to piss everyone off probably; of course, it all degenerates into insults, and what the hell does this achieve. I do not blaim Stan and Chris on going on the defensive.

However, i just wish for once, they  (skepticblog or should that be skepticfog) could actually have some substantial research of their own to draw on…but i guess that would ask too much.

All this, is a good argument for saying, why the hell can we not pull all resources together, and try to build up case studies, even if we cannot nessecarily agree on the outcome. To just keep slagging each other off constantly, is not very productive, is it. Anyone can do it.

jerseyeveningpost26thapril07For instance, the recent Stephenville UFO sightings and the Channel Island sightings (an excellent report was done for the Channel Islands sighting, for instance- it was a very detailed report, and involved a colaboration of quite a few people).

Do not get me wrong either, i have nothing against skeptics, because to some extent, in Ufology, we all have to be skeptics also……. 

PhotobucketThe only way that the Skepicblog has succeeded, is by drawing attention to itself, in which case it has worked, however, i must also point out, that most will see, that they have not actually grown up?

US UFO Disclosure follow up post [with Robert Stanley's article included]

Posted by dandare on November 17, 2008

Following on from my blog post entitled “million fax to Washington – 77 days to change the World” i had an interesting e-mail fromRobert Stanley, referring to an article he has made available - i refer to it below in full; quite a few people have expressed an opinion that there will be no disclosure on UFOs, and some saying that the US government have nothing of interest on them.secretfile

 I am going to be honest, and say that i do not know what they have on the UFO subject, but the fact that they have given us nothing of worth, is not helping them at all. This is reflected in the light that the french have given us UFO information, and recently the British government, has started giving us UFO files (the first batch in may, another in November and more on the way).

This is to be commended, and therefore it follows, that the US should at the least, give us what information they have similar to the British government (although this is not disclosure as such, it would be a start). I also wonder, how much the goverments of the world know on UFOs, and whether they have just ignored it, feeling that it will just go away (hopefully). 

Therefore i feel it is worth taking part, as the more pressure we can place on those in government, the more likely we are of achieving our goals.

We all have different goals and different expectations, but i believe that we should all unite, and exert pressure, to demand more on what they know about UFOs.

The post by Robert Stanley: [please note: due to the size of my page on this blog, i had to redo the article from Robert Stanley.....i hope i have done it reasonable justice,if not i apologise...please see the original article here ]. 

November 6, 2008
 
Open Lettern
to President Elect Obama  

 (includes photos)

Dear President Elect Obama,
 
Your campaign was based on a simple, but profound promise — change. There is one important aspect of the current bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., that desperately needs to change — UFO secrecy. 
 
As president elect you have most likely been briefed on the more than 240 alien incursions of the restricted/prohibited airspace over Washington, D.C., that have transpired since 1948. Pentagon intelligence officers may have also briefed you on the failed military intercepts that occurred in this same period. 

Some of these hostile intercepts proved fatal to our veteran, combat pilots — a tragic waste of life. However, the attempted military intercepts in 1948, 1952, 2002, etc. are what directly led to the current political stance on this subject — total silence.

Despite the fact that hundreds of people have seen and or photographed non-terrestrial, exotic aerospace craft passing over sensitive areas of Washington, D.C., we are told that officially nothing unusual is going on.

This situation has got to change. However, I am certain that your transition team leaders, specifically John Podesta, will urge you not to address this issue publicly.

You see, in 2005, soon after i broke the story internationally of UFOs being photographed over the Capitol, I spoke at length with Mr. Podesta’s public relations firm in D.C. because they had issued press releases regarding their desire to end UFO secrecy . Therefore, it seemed like a good idea to contact them because I was looking for a public official to address the UFO situation in D.C. on the record.
 
However, I was told by Podesta’s people that despite the fact that most of these violation of U.S. airspace by UFOs were witnessed by credible citizens of D.C. and or seen or radar scopes, and or photographed, no one holding political or public office would be willing to officially address the issue.
 
The reason for the official silence was actually quite simple. No one really knew what to do about it. More importantly, if an elected official were to officially admit anything publicly regarding the ongoing UFO incursions of U.S. airspace… that individual (and perhaps their federal agency) would be held personally responsible by the public to deal with the problem. 

During your campaign, you stated your willingness to have a dialogue with all world leaders regardless of their political views. Are you also willing to engage in an open, diplomatic dialogue with the occupants of the unidentified aerospace craft visiting Washington, D.C.? If not, why not?

newcover

As reported in my book “Close Encounters on Capitol Hill,” according to NATO’s classified UFO threat assessment in the 1960s, many of the occupants of these exotic space craft are in fact human and that the others species were various types of intelligent humanoids.

More importantly, NATO concluded that these interplanetary people did not pose a direct threat to our national or international security. If that is true, then why should we continue to deny the existence of human beings from other worlds and refuse to engage them in open, diplomatic debate?

In closing, I would like to make it crystal clear that this is an ongoing situation that will not go away simply by ignoring or denying it exists. Exotic, non-terrestrial spacecraft have historically been sighted and or photographed all over the world. But, they are extremely interested in Washington, D.C.

To illustrate my point, listed below are some of the most recent eyewitness accounts and photographs from our nation’s capital.

Respectfully,

Robert M. Stanley

The following violation of controlled airspace took place in Washington, D.C., at approximately 9:00 p.m., on September 23, 2008. According to one of the witnesses, “My family and I were driving down Constitution Street when we first saw three unidentified lights moving very smoothly and rather slowly behind the Freedom statue that stands on top of the Capitol building’s rotunda.When we got to Union Station, we had a better view of the Capitol and the UFOs were still in sight, but now they were going in a different direction. On our way back home, we got the best view yet of these UFOs.
 
We could see the light on these craft were circular, but since it was night we couldn’t actually see the actual structure of the spacecraft. We went back to Capitol Hill later that night with binoculars, but we didn’t see anything. However when we were there, a security helicopter was flying around the Capitol with a search light.”  

Another violation of controlled airspace transpired in Washington, D.C., at 10:06 p.m., on August 17, 2008. According to the photographer/witness, “While standing on a roof top on 13th and N streets NW, I captured a high-resolution image of a spherical UFO that left a trail of energy as it accelerated into the night sky.

I was using a Nikon D700 which is the most advanced digital camera currently available on the market. My sample shows a bright, white, egg-shaped anomaly with blue and red lights that is leaving a trail of residual energy at a 45 degree angle. No noise was heard? The image I obtained is extraordinary!”

Another violation of controlled airspace took place in Washington, D.C., at approximately 8:00 p.m., on August 13, 2008. According to one of the witnesses, “My friends and I were on a trip to D.C. That evening, we were walking west on the National Mall towards the Smithsonian Metro Station when I noticed a strange object in the sky.
 
It appeared to be cylindrical in shape and dark, gray maybe or a dull metallic color; it was relatively well offset by the colors of the evening sky so it was plainly visible to the naked eye. It seemed to be fairly large and distant and was totally stationary for some time.
 
After I first noticed it I didn’t point it out until I realized that it had not moved at all for close to thirty seconds. I then pointed the UFO out to my four friends who all saw it, but we could not decide what it was. The general consensus seemed to be that it might be a kite of some sort, but to me it seemed too high in the sky and too large to be a kite. 

Also, the area of the sky [which is restricted/prohibited airspace] it was in did not see like a place where anyone would fly a kite of any sort. I pulled out my cell phone to take a picture of the UFO.

The clouds behind the object could be seen clearly on the screen, but the UFO did not appear in my camera despite that fact that as I mentioned before it was plainly visible to the naked eye, a fact that I pointed out to my friends who all saw it. If I recall correctly, I also heard someone in another group that we passed that night mention that they witnessed the UFO.

The strange object remained stationary for several minutes before moving slightly down and to the right and away from our view. The object was perhaps 30 to 40 degrees in the sky to the WNW, generally in the area of the sky between the Washington monument and the White House, but probably more distant.

It particularly struck me as odd because this is not a residential area, and as far as I know restricted air space, also this is the area of the sky were aircraft approach Reagan National airport.”

 public comments page

Another violation of controlled airspace occurred in Washington, D.C., at 8:09 p.m. on August 4, 2007. An anonymous photographer was taking pictures while standing at the Washington Monument which is the center of P51 (prohibited/restricted) airspace of the nation’s capital.
 
The photographer did not see the triangular UFO while taking the picture. Photographic analysis shows the UFO was emitting an exotic energy field propulsion as it moved through the sky — see image below.
