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:

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.

Scottish UFO mystery: Little Billy loses grip on helium shark then pilots report near miss with blue and silver object ( Daily Record)

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.

“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!”

Storm_Clouds_Over_Garden_City_Beach_Sat_01You may have never seen an unidentified flying object over Myrtle Beach, but if you live in this area, chances are you know someone who has.

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”.

Oz X-Files : “authenticated sighting”, “appear to be inexplicable”, USA “very interested”, page 1

Posted by dandare on April 28, 2013

With the permission of the National Archives of Australia (on behalf of the Commonwealth Government of Australia), I’ve uploaded searchable PDF files containing over 10,000 pages of Australian UFO documents to a directory at the link below. Some highlights from that collection are given in the post below (article from IscaacKoi).

via Oz X-Files : “authenticated sighting”, “appear to be inexplicable”, USA “very interested”, page 1.

I have posted this link from Above Top Secret, just in case anyone has missed out on the ufo documents from Australia.

Also of interest is Fast searching of major free online collections of UFO journals .It mentions that

It is now possible to download the journals published over the last few decades by several significant UFO groups (including NICAP, MUFON and APRO) and do REALLY fast searches of them ” [ extract from article].

Definately both worth checking out, as a wealth of information can be found there.

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.

The Joint Intelligence Committee is better known for providing briefings to the government on matters relating to security, defence and foreign affairs.

But the latest batch of UFO files released from the Ministry of Defence to the National Archives shows that, in 1957, the committee received reports detailing an average of one UFO sighting a week.

The missing files relate to a report of mysterious lights from US servicemen at RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk in 1980.

There was also a desk set up at the RAF which sometimes dealt with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and their possible implications for air defence. Officials who were devoted to defence intelligence also dealt with UFOs from time to time.

So the government has felt the urge to go through the motions for UFOs – even if there was a definite lack of actual spacecraft buzzing over Whitehall.

dandare_avatar_created1The National Archives have released thousands of documents relating to sightings of UFOs and the way the UK government chose to deal with the paranormal reports.

Dr David Clarke, UFO consultant to the National Archives, explains how parliament debated UFOs in the House of Lords in 1979 and discusses fears about the sightings in the Cold War era.

The files include a written description of how the object flew over the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) on 24 February 1979. They also include a drawing.

The object was said to be about 30ft (9m) across. As it flew off over Darwen, it lit up several streets.

Nine orange bright lights were also seen in the Lytham area in June 2006.

Welsh UFO sightings revealed in latest government files ( BBC 11th August 2011)

_54551787_sttudwalsDetails of UFO sightings across Wales in the last 25 years are revealed in files made public by the Ministry of Defence.

A UFO spotted over St Tudwal’s Islands in the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd and a “slow-moving disc” seen at a festival in Llanfyllin, Powys, are included.

The 34 files released by the National Archives cover 1985 to 2007.

Accounts of sightings over Anglesey, Denbighshire, Cardiff and Swansea are also detailed.

The files include requests for information about UFO sightings in south Wales made by various newspapers and confirmation that a reported UFO incident over Swansea in 1998 was either RAF Sea Kings or Vampire planes.

Newly released government files on UFOs show a lack of will and resources to study thousands of reported sightings.

The Ministry of Defence files released by the National Archives cover reported sightings of UFOs from 1985 to 2007.

In one, a military officer predicts embarassment if the public discovered a “lack of funds and higher priorities” were stopping UFO investigations.

The 34 files include sightings of lights over Glastonbury and a “flying saucer” in Nottinghamshire.

The truth isn’t out there (BBC Radio4 Today 11th August 2011)

_54524650_alexpicOn 27 January 2004 there was a light snowfall in Nottinghamshire. Alex Birch, a local photographer, grabbed his camera. He wanted to take a picture of his local town hall, Retford, for a competition.

He got the shot – the picturesque winter scene you can see above – and he says he did not notice anything out of the ordinary. When he developed the picture though he saw a clear flying saucer shape.

This was not the first time Alex had taken a picture of a UFO. In 1962, as a 14 year-old schoolboy, he had taken a picture which showed five saucer shaped objects in the distance.

These are just three of the cases uncovered in files released by the National Archives examining UFO sightings across Wales.

The papers span four decades, and include nearly 7,000 documents.

But one of the biggest Welsh UFO mysteries, the ‘Dyfed Triangle’, may have been an elaborate practical joke.

It is the latest in a growing number of documents released detailing the UK’s obsession with claims of extra-terrestrial sightings that began to surge in post-war Britain.

The papers reveal that between 1996 and 2008, more than 20 detailed sightings were reported to the police and Ministry of Defence in Wales.

Five years ago, the Ministry of Defence started releasing their files on UFO sightings which had once been kept secret.

The Today programme’s Sanchia Berg has been keeping an eye on them.

Blair was briefed on UK UFO files (BBC 12th July 2012)

_61512693_flyingsaucersPrime Minister Tony Blair was briefed on the UK’s files about UFO sightings in 1998, newly declassified MoD documents have revealed.

Writer Nick Redfern urged him to “consider making available for public scrutiny all of the many and varied UFO reports compiled by the government”.

The request came as the government began to implement Freedom of Information (FOI requests).

Some 6,700 pages of UFO documents have been released by the National Archives.

The documents also include details of a briefing made before a House of Lords debate on UFOs in 1979, and reveal that former prime minister John Major had been asked by a fellow MP in 1996 whether the government would set up a national inquiry into UFO sightings.

What was it really like working on UK’s ‘X-Files’ ? (BBC 12th July 2012)

_61506881_closeencountersFiles released by the National Archives reveal for the first time detail of the role of UFO Desk officers, what they really thought about the possibility of alien visits, and their briefings to Tony Blair on UFO policy.

Between 1950 and 2009 a special Ministry of Defence unit investigated more than 10,000 UFO “sightings” – a rate of one every two days.

Most, it appears from papers released on Thursday, had an everyday explanation, from aircraft, to balloons, reflected lights or other innocent activity.

One of the newly-released papers, from December 2008, shortly before the desk was transferred to the RAF’s Air Command, indicates what life was like for those posted to UFO duties.

World UFO Sightings April 2013 [part 1 of 2]

Posted by dandare on April 4, 2013

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

disconnect-1Please 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.

ufo4Some 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.

Results from a poll conducted by Insights West in Canada’s province of British Columbia were published on April 1, which explored the conspiracy theory beliefs of British Columbians. An incredible 52% of the citizens polled believe UFOs exist.

A similar poll in the U.S. was conducted by Public Policy Polling, and it examined how democrats and republicans differ on conspiracy theory beliefs. The results, published on April 2, reveal that 21% of voters say a UFO crashed in Roswell, NM in 1947 and the US government covered it up. And 29% of voters believe aliens exist.

Go on believing in UFOs if that’s your thing. You have just as much reason to do so after reading Hottel’s memo, since it doesn’t refute the existence of the downed saucers. Just remember that intelligence reports that seem like smoking guns are usually more smoke than gun.

‘UFO may have been my drone’ (this is gloucestershire)

“It is possible I may be able to shed some light on this sighting with, unfortunately, a rather terrestrial answer,” said the reader, who did not wish to be named.

“Over the past two weeks we have been testing a small remote controlled drone equipped with a digital camera which can record both video and still images.

“This is highly likely to be what your photographer has captured.

The video is from the type of drone this article is referring too

UFO reported seen over Wallingford on Wednesday night (myrecordjournal.com)

According to the website listing for the event, someone reported seeing an object that looked like a star moving erratically in the sky about 8:30 p.m. The person said the object was very bright, made sudden turns, then fell from the sky behind a tree line.

UFO seen over North Hykeham? (This is Lincolnshire)

UFOA North Hykeham man says he spotted a UFO from his back garden on Friday night.

Stephen Melusco, from Lynmouth Close, said he went outside to observe stars and saw the dark delta or dart-shaped object travelling across the sky at about 9.15pm on April 5.

“It appeared to be travelling north east to west and was quite fast and may have been the size of medium size aircraft,” he said.

“The sighting lasted 4 or 5 seconds. There were no on-board lights and no engine sounds.

“I only saw it because there where some low clouds at that time with street lights from Lincoln Road or NK in the distance which made the object appear lighter.”(whole article posted here).

O’Hare exhibit includes ‘UFO video’ ( UPI.com)

The 2006 video involves a pilot flying at 38,000 feet having a conversation with the control tower. The pilot reports seeing an object at his “10 o’clock” that rapidly changes colors before vanishing. The air controller reports seeing nothing unusual.

Roberto Sarmiento, head of the Transportation Library and curator of the online exhibit, said the site also pays tribute to Ralph Burke, who wrote the original 1948 master plan for O’Hare.

“Burke deserves much of the credit for forging an innovative plan that, eventually and for the most part, became a reality,” Sarmiento said.

UFO film to provide proof that aliens exist ( ZEENews.com)

An upcoming documentary film about UFOs has claimed that it will be offering evidence of aliens’ existence including the cutting-edge scientific analysis of a recovered body.

The film, which premieres on April 22, is titled ‘ Sirius’ and showcases the claims of Steven Greer, a prominent UFO researcher, to prove that the US government is actively covering up hard evidence of extraterrestrial life.

The project has taken several years, and money to fund the film was raised from donors and UFO believers.

Sirius Film DEBUNKED – UFO News – Aliens Exist: Alien Dissection Fraud ( ringsidereport.com)

The extraordinary claims surrounding the film “SIRIUS” has me scratching my head. As an investigator of UFOs, I am always looking for real proof but this new documentary is already starting to stink.

The comments at the end of this article are condeming, however, i have to be honest, and say that i am not a fan of Greer,who has damaged the UFO community….

UFO Sightings Reported in Buford  (Buford Patch.com)

2d78536f407865bed68416f4c41cf3b7Less than a year after a white, oval-shaped object was seen zigzagging across the Buford skies, another mysterious flying object has been reported.

A report posted on UFO Stalker, a website that tracks reported UFO sightings throughout the country, describes the March 6, 2013, Buford incident…[..]….

The recent sighting may not be the only one in the Buford area. On April 5, a Buford Patch reader posted the following comment:

“At 9:40 p.m. I was sitting on my back porch in Buford Georgia. I saw a white ball of light with two red circles next to it. The two red lights where a good distance from the white light. It hovered for a little bit then shift to left then to right. then shot straight up. and hoverd for a little bit then shot down”.

On the Mutual UFO Network website, the witness’s response was logged:

“I was sitting on my back porch watching the doves in the trees i saw a small object coming from from the left about 200 or 300 ft. off the ground across the trees in front of me above my house. It then looked like a bird to me at first then it looked like balloons and then it got closer, I could see what it was, it looked gun black, about 10 ft round and 6 to 8 ft tall. It looked like a thread bobbing, it flew across the sky, the same speed and until it went out of my sight. It took about 30 seconds to go from left to right, absolutely no noise, it blew my mind. I could not believe I saw that in the sky. I live 2 miles from FAA center in New Jersey. I have seen every plane that the air force has flown over my house, it was not a plane.”

MOD UFO files [part one of Three]

Posted by dandare on April 1, 2013

The National Archives, Kew, London.

The National Archives, Kew, London. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There is a wealth of information out there on the UFO Files from the MOD, some good and some less so, including videos,audio and great articles on them. I have decided to put them into three part’s.

There were ten batches of files released to the public by the MOD.

David Clarke has a wealth of information on his site

UFO File Release 2008

National Archives UFO Files #1

The first release covers UFO reports, policy and public correspondence between 1978 and 1987. Four of the eight files originate with the MoD Air Staff secretariats DS8 and Sec(AS). These have become well known to UFO researchers and the media as the MoD’s ‘UFO desk’. (released may 2008)

National Archives UFO Files #2

On 20 October 2008 the UK National Archives opened a second collection of UFO files covering seven years of sightings reported to the Ministry of Defence. Covering the years 1986 through to 1992 this tranche contains some 4,500 pages of material, spread across 19 separate files. (released october 2008).

National Archives UFO Files #3

This tranche consists of seven files containing more than 2,000 pages of material. Six of the files contain UFO reports copied to the MoD’s secretive Defence Intelligence branch DI55, between November 1987 and April 1993. During this period 1200 individual sightings were reported to the authorities.(released march 2009).

National Archives UFO files #4

Well, the collection includes a hefty correspondence file (DEFE 24/1970) containing letters to MoD from MPs and a number of well-known UFOlogists between 1985 and 1995. There are complete dossiers on classic cases such as Rendlesham, the ‘Cosford incident’ and the Belgian UFO flap, along with six whole files packed with UFO sighting reports.(released August 2009).

National Archives UFO files #5

There are 24 files in this tranche containing more than 6,000 pages of documents spanning 1994-2000. The correspondence files span the period 1994-99 and the UFO report files begin in August 1996 and end in September 2000. (released February 2010).

National Archives UFO files #6

The release includes 18 files containing 5000 pages of correspondence and Parliamentary briefings created by the Ministry of Defence between 1995 and 2000. The documents provide a unique historical snapshot of the extraordinary beliefs, legends and rumours that were held and spread by UFOlogists around the time of the 50th anniversary of the birth of the subject in 1997. (released August 2010).

ufo file release august 2010

National Archives UFO files #7

A number of papers in this tranche of files reveal the MoD destroyed whole collections of UFO files as recently as 1990 for reasons they could not explain  They were reluctant to publicly admit they had destroyed files as they feared this might add fuel to allegations they were involved in a cover-up. They were right! (released march 2011).

ufo file released march 2011

National Archives UFO Files #8

On 11 August 2011 The National Archives opened 34 formerly secret Ministry of Defence UFO files…..[..].. In my opinion these papers provide the most detailed and revealing insight into British government UFO policy in the decade before the closure of the MoD’s UFO desk in 2009. (released August 2011).

National Archives UFO Files #9 

The ninth collection of UFO files were released by the UK Government on 12 July 2012….[..].Possibly the most revealing document was written by the last incumbent of the MoD’s UFO desk, and can be found at the end of UFO policy file DEFE 24/2087/1, p5-7. (released July 2012).

National Archives UFO files #10

This fully revised and expanded edition is the first comprehensive history of the MoD’s UFO investigation unit.  Although official investigations began in the 1950s when Winston Churchill demanded to know ‘the truth’ about UFOs, this book reveals official interest stretched back to before the First World War. (released September 2012).

The video can be seen here

I start with the references to David Clarke, mainly because without him, the files probably would not have been released.

The Clarke references above link to the National Archives, and you will now have to pay to download them.[in part 3 i will try and indicate were they can be downloaded for free on the internet-hopefully i can find them all].

Definately worth a look, as it describes all that are in the files and is a wealth of information.

In Part 2, i will be putting up the many BBC articles on the UFO files and other refences to the UFO files from media sources.

McMinnville UFO photographs – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posted by dandare on March 30, 2013

The McMinnville UFO photographs were taken on a farm near McMinnville, Oregon in 1950. The photos were reprinted in LIFE magazine and in newspapers across the nation, and are often considered to be among the most famous ever taken of a UFO.
