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 ].

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?


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.

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.











Note how the shape of the objects in 1949 is the same as 2007-2008 
























Apollo 16 – Compare the triangular formation of UFOs above to the July 1949 Pentagon photo.

All went well, and they are well on course for joining the International Space Station…. I know this has nothing to do with UFOs, but i am still fascinated with space, and all that it entails.

I forgot to also give another link….. see it here . On the right hand side there are alternative views (best for images is windows media player- go to other viewing options, link is there). What’s on will show you times of events…. should be good when it gets to the ISS.

Million fax to Washington – 77 days to change the world

Posted by dandare on November 13, 2008

beulah_hynek_1961The Paradigm Research Group has put forward a plan entitled:

Million Fax on Washington

Between November 5, 2008 and January 20, 2009 – seventy-seven days – send a letter, fax and/or email to the senatorial office and transition headquarters of the President Elect Barack Obama calling for the next administration to end the Truth Embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence and release as much relevant information to the American people as possible within reasonable constraints of national security. You won’t be alone. The goal is one million ” ( extract from article).

It goes on to mention why you should do it, what you should know, basic points to draw from your letter, fax and so on; plus additional information, and contact information.

A youtube video on this can be seen below

The Paradigm Research Group can be seen at http://www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/

I also believe (i think), that this effort will be international in scope, and citizens of other countries are also being encouraged to contact the new American president.

Not only did the dude get his facts wrong about Obama transition team leader John Podesta (no, sorry, Greg, the former Clinton chief of staff did NOT form the Coalition for Freedom of Information), he went out and blew snot all over his own political species…[.]…..The point here isn’t that Gutfield doesn’t know what he’s talking about. It’s better that way. Let’s hope the suits at Fox News keep this blundering, Podesta/UFO liberal fantasy alive and bobble it all the way into the prime-time news cycle. They might get it so wrong, they could provoke some sort of official response. Then we might actually get a debate going. Then we might actually get somewhere ” (extracts from article).

Over at Bad Astronomy ” Aliens? yes. UFOs? no

As far as aliens go, I suspect pretty strongly that there’s life in space. We know of over 300 planets orbiting other stars, and we’ve only just started looking. In our Milky Way Galaxy alone there are probably literally billions of planets. Life on Earth got started pretty rapidly, relatively speaking, after the crust cooled and liquid water formed, so we know it’s not tough for life to get its start… and it’s entirely possible there is microbial life inside icy moons orbiting Jupiter and Saturn.

So thinking aliens exist has a pretty decent scientific basis. But them coming here is an entirely different beast ” (extract from article). Alot of comments to this blog post, also worth looking at.

UK – UFO sightings [November 2008] updated regularly

Posted by dandare on November 9, 2008

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, after the MOD released its UFO archive, and this might account for the media clamouring for our attention (how much of it is fact, is frankly anyone’s guess), and also the public looking at the sky more than normal.

Many of the sightings are sensationalised, 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:  https://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/05/19/ufo-balloons-what-are-they/ for more details, from a previous article).   

However, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research.

EBE Award Winner! Best Film International UFO Congress Film Festival. On March 11, 2000, in front of an assembled audience of UFO enthusiasts and the media, evidence was presented that would appear to indicate the existence of, not one, but two types of unknown extraterrestrial lifeforms
video 1.29 minutes entitled “The secret NASA Transmissions the smoking gun

the NASA video, on what looks like a missile being fired at a ufo (problem with this video is that it’s poor quality)…it is of STS48 in 1998.

Many camera’s are filming the missions and all these video’s, and communication between space & ground is being send to Houston (NASA) with satellite. In Canada there was a owner of a TV Station named: Martyn Stubbs, who could also receive the SAME NASA satellite video’s, and he taped for more then 5 years all the mission’s video’s /communication that Houston was receiving. I’m not convinced by what some of the narrator says, but interesting footage.

Top secret UFO NASA tapes

“This footage is very rare and was hard to find, its from the live STS-48 Nasa feed in 1991” ; claims this youtube who downloaded this video for us to see.

The NASA STS-75 mission ran a trial experimental tether that was to be used for towing and placing satellites into orbit. During this experiment, they had a problem, and the 12 mile long tether snapped due to the synthetic material accumulating a critical charge.
The shuttles cameras monitored the tether and its 100 million dollar satellite it was towing just drift away. This was all video taped live, and what was captured on this video is absolutely incredible. NASA claims the objects in the footage are ice particles very close to the camera and area passing in front of the far away tether.

Also extra on tether incident

NASA’s unexplained tether overload incident… they claim it is space debris, that is getting sun reflections; some are definately pulsing though?

NASA claim: Apollo 16 photo…no longer a UFO see here for link. its highly likely, that this is a true explaination for this photo.

It goes into detail about the imagery available, an overview of the area, handy links to other sites (some now are not working), and images of Area 51 through the years, near the bottom of the article.

It seems to have been written in 2000, but still handy for anyone interested in this topic. Imagery of groom lake can be seen here .

Maybe, i’ll do a similar post for videos in the not to distant future, and use past videos, together with new ones.

If you have any more links i should consider, or have missed please leave me a comment… although this is not a definative listing here.

Rock stars + their alien encounters (Times online )

Posted by dandare on November 1, 2008

The Times online has an article entitled ” Rock Stars + their alien encounters ” (posted november 2nd 2008 ); The Sunday Times mentions in its first part of the article: 

First of all, just about every songwriter of note has written at least one song about the final frontier. Space is, after all, the perfect metaphor for . . . well . . . just about anything you’d like it to be “…[.]…” Elvis Presley told his inner circle about alien experiences — hardly surprising since his father had noted a strange blue light in the sky when Elvis was born. John Lennon, Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix all saw UFOs, and Lennon had an extremely close encounter with an alien ” (extracts from article).

It then goes on to mention a new band called Sneaky Sound System, who have made a new song called UFO; the lead singer claims to have had an encounter. She said   

“I tried to remember what had happened and gradually it came back to me. I had seen two lights in the sky, and then each light split into three, and then went like that and like that and like that.” Mitchell draws fast, jerky, triangular movements in the air ” (extract from article).

Of course, some might say, that due to the recent hightening/increased media attention for  sightings, they might be trying to ride on this popularity….. personally i do not. 

Below are some of the videos of the band off you tube
