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.

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.

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.

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….

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.”

UFOs or No? The Guy Hottel Memo ( fbi.gov/news)

hottel500First, the Hottel memo isn’t new. It was first released publicly in the late 1970s and had been posted on the FBI website for several years prior to the launch of the Vault.

Second, the Hottel memo is dated nearly three years after the infamous events in Roswell in July 1947. There is no reason to believe the two are connected. The FBI file on Roswell (another popular page) is posted elsewhere on the Vault.

Third, as noted in an earlier story, the FBI has only occasionally been involved in investigating reports of UFOs and extraterrestrials. For a few years after the Roswell incident, Director Hoover did order his agents—at the request of the Air Force—to verify any UFO sightings. That practice ended in July 1950, four months after the Hottel memo, suggesting that our Washington Field Office didn’t think enough of that flying saucer story to look into it [extract from article].

FBI ‘never investigated’ famous UFO memo ( GlobalPost)

FBI’s famous UFO memo fails to resolve ‘flying saucer’ mystery (RT.com)

fbi-ufo-roswell-incident.siThe memo had first been released under the Freedom of Information Act in the late 1970s, but was not available online until the FBI uploaded its public records in April 2011. Since being posted to the Internet two years ago, the document has generated more than two million views, making it the FBI’s most-viewed public record in history.

The document’s publication has led to numerous media reports that labeled it as “proof” of alien existence. In 2011, the Daily Mail connected the FBI’s report to the 1947 Roswell UFO incident – an alleged extraterrestrial spacecraft crash that has been the subject of controversy for decades.

But since the FBI’s memo was published three years after the Roswell incident, the agency wants the media to know that it is a separate incident and that it never solved the mystery [extract from article].

Fox, who previously directed Out of the Blue (2002) and I Know What I Saw (2009), will reveal the $100K challenge at the 22nd International UFO Congress (IUFOC), which begins Feb. 27, in Fountain Hills, Ariz.

“One of the aspects that sets our film apart is the producers’ commitment to bringing forth never-before-seen evidence. As part of this effort, we’re offering a $100,000 reward for the best proof that some UFOs are alien spacecraft,” Fox told The Huffington Post exclusively.

“This material can be in the form of a photograph, video or film footage or debris from an alleged crash site. But it must be able to withstand scientific scrutiny by our chosen panel.

“Our intent is not to create another television UFO documentary, but to produce a feature film for worldwide theatrical release — ‘The 701′ — the most compelling film ever produced on UFOs,” Fox said. [extract from article].

World UFO sightings December 2012 [part 2 of 2]

Posted by dandare on December 19, 2012

ufo6

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

ufo7Please 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).

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.

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].

The book includes Wisconsin UFO sightings – a 1951 report from St. Croix and Marinette in 1956.

World UFO sightings November 2012 [updated regularly] Part 1 of 2

Posted by dandare on November 2, 2012

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.

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.

UFOlogy: Dead Again?  ^^ ( Dr David Clarke )

Is UFOlogy dead or alive?  I predict ASSAP may be posing the same question in 2022 but as far I’m concerned the subject remains interesting as an example of living myth. The question ‘do aliens exist’ is actually nothing to do with ‘do UFOs exist’. Of course UFOs exist, in that people see unidentified things in the sky ” [extract from article].

Channel 4 has a similar article to The Telegraph UFO watchers consider future after decline in sightings

The organisation is concerned that the debate has been polarised between those who firmly believe UFOs are extra terrestrials and fear that there is a cover-up over their presence and those who have declared the “death of the UFO  [....] But to me it seems a shame that the UFO hunters may be giving up at a time when we are closer than ever to finding life in other worlds.

To be a skeptic means to evaluate claims skeptically, not just to adhere to a certain “party line.” When confronted by an article that seems “too good to be true,” the skeptic should not just take it as confirmation of what he or she has long believed. Instead, the skeptic should ask a question like, “Who in the hell is this guy Dave Wood, and why should we accept his claim about UFOlogists having second thoughts?” ” [ extract from the article].

IFO’s …..What are they?

Posted by dandare on October 5, 2012

What is an IFO; well it is a term that stands for Identified Flying Objects…. we refer to them, when we are able to identify an object in the sky.

I would like to quickly guide you through some of the many IFO’s in the sky, just to show that there is alot out there that is identified; this is important, as we must always keep this in mind, when looking at possible UFO’s…. for instance, live checks can be made on sateillites and where they are, if you know where to look ……

The Delta Project “Common IFO Phenomena” by Robert Moore;  gives a flavour of the IFO subject (Identified Flying Object).

There are many IFO’s out there:

1  Sateillites

For instance, the Naval Ocean Surveillance Sateillite.

” NOSS is a group of satellites that travel as a group of three in orbit around the Earth and sighting of this trio has given rise to many UFO reports in the UK” (extract from post).Also see here for more links to sateillites, with programmes to track them, ect.

For real time sateillite tracking see Heaven’s Above (recommended). Also for Hubble, Mir and others see here , here and here (real time tracking also).

Paul Maley’s site   (which is way out of date) shows just how much re-entered junk, falls back down to earth.

2  Space Junk

Alot of re-entry space junk, can be another possible IFO.

It has been the cause of quite a few ufo sightings; they are similar to bright fireball meteors, but have been known to be much more dramatic.

Only recently, space junk was the cause of sightings- in the UK.

sky news

BBC News

“On average, one non-functional spacecraft, launch vehicle orbital stage, or other piece of cataloged debris has fallen back to Earth every day for more than 40 years. The majority of these objects do not survive the intense reentry environment. For the minority which do survive in whole or in part, most fall harmlessly into the oceans or onto sparsely populated regions such as Siberia, the Australian Outback, or the Canadian Tundra. Occasionally, components of spacecraft and launch vehicles are found” (extract from NASA Debris Re-entry recovered ). However, this phenomena is becoming more common as the years pass.

Sources for this on the internet are Orbital Debris Quarterly news here , paul maley’s site “satellite ” website, with pictures of large re-entry debris here (still quite rare, especially at these sizes; thats a relief).

3    UFO Balloons

UFO balloons (or fire balloons) are a small balloon, heated by a flame below….. they are based on sky lanterns (invented by Chu Ko Liang), from China, which where traditionally made from a combination of bamboo frames and rice paper…. and used a rag dipped in paraffin, which was then lit, to get them airborne.

UFO balloons (i think commercialy started in 2005?) use a clear plastic bag (others use other material such as dry cleaner bags), and fitted below with a firelighter, held in place by wire; others have used balsa wood and drinking straws to make them, and a candle in place of the firelighter.

A ufo balloon being lit and put into the air can be seen here on you tube…..

These balloons need to be put into the mix, when researching and collaborating UFO sightings, to confirm that it is not these that have sparked off the reported sightings…. they do have some characteristics that can help in this though…. they have a whiteish-yellow glow, although in some weather conditions, these can be orangey red, and do not move quickly (unless in a strong wind-although this could create a fire risk) and always with the wind too, obviously.

They must be used in the right weather conditions, otherwise there is a real possibility that they can catch fire to the surrounding countryside, property, etc.

The ideal conditions to use them are on cool, clear non breezy evenings… they last for around 8 to 10 minutes (but sometimes slightly longer) and can rise as far as about 1000 metres; it can also move with airstream’s as it rises. Although i have heard of some that can last for far longer (up to 40 minutes they claim) using a candle framework to keep it alight for longer…. i’m sure there are other variations too.

Another thing is that they do not come out well on camera or video, but can be quite visual when seen real time.

So UFO followers must take this into account when considering reports of ufo’s, although there are many IFO’s out there (i will when time allows put a permanent page up, with as many references to IFO’s as i can).

This just gives you a flavour of what there is out in the skies……. hope this helps you when you see something in the sky…always ask- is it possibly an IFO.
