World UFO sightings April 2013 [part 2 of 2]

Posted by dandare on April 19, 2013

ufo-online55555Many 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.

google-unexplained_1476049cSome 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.

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.

Pipeline-era politician joins UFO inquiry (Anchorage Press)

Though he claims to be a UFO skeptic, former U.S. Senator for Alaska Mike Gravel is one of six former members of Congress scheduled to join a staged UFO investigation in a Washington D.C. at the end of the month. The event purports to be an inquiry into a vast government cover-up. The promoters have rented the ballroom at The National Press Club’s Washington D.C. headquarters for five days beginning April 29.

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.

Aliens in Ireland? Mysterious UFOs caught on camera   **   (Daily express)

That is, if you choose to believe footage made by one UFO spotter who filmed the glowing sky-balls hovering over Cork, in southern Ireland.

But rather than share his discovery with the world straight away, the bashful space twitcher chose to sit on it for four months before posting a video on YouTube.

American horror writer Whitley Strieber posted a note on the video, on his Web site, and said he had the video analysed by three experts. Two of the three people consulted declared the tape was a hoax, while the third made no decision either way.

Hundreds of UFO pics captured over Perth by Darlington man(Perthnow.com.au)

794765-rob-hartlandRob Hartland has taken more than 20,000 photos of the day-time sky in the past six months and analysed them on his computer.

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.

Nick Pope, the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) former UFO project head, was commenting on figures released by the MoD which show sightings have gone up.

He said other sightings reflected the growing popularity of Chinese lanterns.

The documents show officials were more concerned about secret weapons being developed by other countries rather than alien visitors.

The sightings were brought to the attention of the MoD by the Daily Record newspaper.

He is said to have seen a yellow light four storeys high, which made a high-pitched noise “like cats wailing” and fired beams at a railway line.

According to the police log the bright yellow light followed the youngster as he crossed a footbridge from Avondale Drive into Upton.

_46218820_close_rex466Newly released documents show that UFO sightings in the UK leapt five-fold in the same year that the alien invader blockbuster Independence Day was released. So is there a link between UFOs and science-fiction?

_46218596_ufo_466In 1996, the Earth was under attack from an alien mothership. Do you remember?

Fortunately, Will Smith was on hand to save the planet. This did happen. At least in cinemas.

Independence Day was the blockbuster film of the year, but the fiction it portrayed may have had an impact on the real world – a huge jump in the number of reported sightings of UFOs.

The bookie said it would not pay up as the United Nations had not confirmed the existence of extraterrestrials.

Churchill ordered UFO cover-up, National Archives show (BBC 5th August 2010)

_48592278_48592279The government took the threat of UFOs so seriously in the 1950s that UK intelligence chiefs met to discuss the issue, newly-released files show.

Ministers even went on to commission weekly reports on UFO sightings from a committee of intelligence experts.

The papers also include a wartime account claiming prime minister Winston Churchill ordered a UFO sighting be kept secret to prevent “mass panic”.

The files show reports of UFOs peaked in 1996 – when The X Files was popular.

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.

_50483874_dscf4850Thirty years after claims that UFOs had been spotted in Rendlesham Forest, experts and enthusiasts still can’t agree on what happened.

Mysterious craft and lights around the airbases of Woodbridge and Bentwaters in Suffolk were reported around 26/27 December 1980.

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

_51491818_009954085-1There is a standard letter, which is found throughout the files with minor variations, which was sent to hundreds of people who entered into correspondence with the government about unusual phenomenon.

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.

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.

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.

_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 January 2013 [Part 2 of 2]

Posted by dandare on January 17, 2013

walton28reconstitution29

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.

greek-plane

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.

One of the ‘craft’ emerges from the shadowy landscape of the moon’s surface and then seemingly accelerates over the craters. It then changes direction at breakneck speed towards the bottom of the screen ” [extract from article].

According to documents declassified in 2007, in the 1950s and 1960s Area 51 was home to a top-secret Cold War-era program known as Oxcart, which aimed to develop a spy plane that would be undetectable in the air and could be used for information gathering missions behind the Iron Curtain ” [extract from article].

Readers correct to exercise caution with early UFO reporting ( examiner.com )

Reporting on incoming UFO cases allows early news on selected reports to reach a wider audience, but does leave a wide door open that does not include expert analysis on identifiable objects that are man made or produced by Mother Nature. The few incidents of hoaxing is also a possibility.

This story opens at 2:30 p.m. on November 8, 2012, near Rachel by the “black mailbox spot at Area 51” – a slice of UFO coverage that may have already been over-reported during the past few decades with an endless supply of documentaries and network television summaries ” [extract from article].

World UFO sightings [September 2009] updated regularly

Posted by dandare on October 30, 2009

ufo online55555

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.Walton%28reconstitution%29

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.

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

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

Brazil UFO files made public (Sweden also – 9th may)USA?

Posted by dandare on May 7, 2009

brazil may2009brsmallThanks too CBPDV, UFO (Brazilian Journal Of Ufology), i have been made aware of the UFO files which came out on May 4th; please see this link (translated by Google, and added below):

”  The reason, quite a surprise to all Brazilian Ufology Community: new documents released for Aeronautics. “Looks like we’re starting to get the parts that most interest us, including the operation of Prato,” said Beck.
Folder number 10, for example, were not only documents that had already CBU, but also more new photos and descriptions of events related to what became known as “Suck Suck” in Pará – among dozens of other official narratives and testimonies from civilians, and many images (copies) of newspapers.
” (extract from article).

brazil ufo files 2009The documents can be downloaded from this link also: (the downloaded link, will say Translation from English into English is not supported (just click on see original page), and choose from the list….. all documents are obviously not in English….. apart from MOD ones which are covered in parent list (at top).

brazil ufofiles 2009 bHave a good look around, as there is alot of information (even if you do not understand the language) also for MOD (if you missed it (1926-1957), and other countries are covered. Also photographs too.

The Brazilian Files cover the years 1970 – 1979, but unfortunately i can only translate very small pieces; hope there might be a way around this somehow….

Please also see this link (from the same website).

Many thanks also to Atrueoriginall for alerting me to the Brazilian UFO files coming out in the first place – cheers.

I am also aware that the Swedish are also going to bring out their UFO files very soon (possibly the 9th May). I can here you saying USA, come on down, your time is up….

Update: 8th may

From the same Brazilian website some more news (updated) It says they are examining/processing the files. Entitled ” Another batch of secret Ufology files was released by the National Archives ” (translated by google).

brazilufo files09Fernando Ramalho reports from the task this week: “I am studying the material, it is a lot. Agora terminei o ano de 1972. Now finished the year 1972. Even so, I sent a copy of it via special delivery to other members of the CBU and to make everything on the site of UFO Magazine.

In addition to documentation of the Air, there are actually documents the DOPS and materials were observed in other places, such as statements of generals, engineers of the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA) and police, for example, and this only in the files examined so far.


This is certainly the largest and most important of all releases that have occurred since the campaign began ufos: Freedom of information already. All material will be studied, analyzed and compared with data that already have Ufology, both as those obtained previously reached by casting, for finding something on which the government may be holding on these specific topics, or about Operation Prato, is on the activities of DOPS
” (extract from article).

For more information on Sweden releases coming very soon, please see these links :

18,ooo Swedish UFO reports (Expressen)…translated by google.
