UFO crashed in China in 1947….shows up in declassified files

Posted by dandare on April 27, 2009

images-2I was alerted by Michael Cohen, to an article he has written today entitled ” China: UFO crash at Chengdu 1947 revealed in declassified files

On July 18th 1947 a farmer near Chengdu found unusual remains of what appeared to be a crashed flying saucer or UFO in the fields. News spread and locals congregated to see the bizarre UFO wreckage. The head of the Physics department of the local university, Professor Zeng Zhanhan, was asked to analyse the wreckage along with other experts and a report was written up. The object was declared a UFO ” (extract from article).

_avatar_created1It is indeed both interesting and intriguing, and the reference page given at the bottom(of his article), points to a Chinese account of this…. I have used google to translate the article here (and although not a great translation…an understatement..you can just about follow it..i think).

clipart_scifi_spaceships_003What worries me, is the source of the information, and were it has come from…. can the declassified files be properly verified, and what is the media reporting this like…is it similar to ‘ The Sun ‘ (newspaper), in the Uk…. if so then it will definately have to be questioned.

Of course, if most things check out, then this would be quite significant.

In conclusion, due to (especially) recent hoaxes, and disinformation, we can only speculate on the information given here, however enticing, and hope that more information comes to light…. and then we can reassess it; for now we can merely speculate.

My thanks to Michael for informing me about this….

Hello and welcome to World UFO Update


Whats happened around the UFO world, in April 2009 (mainly articles that have caught my eye).






LA Times ” The road to Area 51

area51The problem is the myths of Area 51 are hard to dispute if no one can speak on the record about what actually happened there. Well, now, for the first time, someone is ready to talk—in fact, five men are, and their stories rival the most outrageous of rumors ” (extract from article).


Gibson.com ” Legendary Rock photographer Robert Knight on Zeppelin, Jeff Beck and Steve Ray Vaughan

guitar-6usYou’d be surprised how many rock people enjoy doing a photo shoot with me because they get a UFO update. They’re the people who are most receptive to other forms of consciousness. They’re wide open.

When Dave Grohl calls his band the Foo Fighters, and they’re on Roswell Records and they premiere the record in Roswell, New Mexico, you know something’s going on! Jimmy Page has always been interested in UFOs, and Jimi Hendrix was driven by UFO ideas ” (extract from article).  Cool.


NJ.com ” Morris County men sentenced in UFO hoax ” many press outlets covered this story…too many to mention.

large_lights Between Jan. 5 and Feb. 19, Rudy and Russo released helium balloons with traffic flares tied to them on five separate occasions in what they called a “social experiment” to debunk the pseudoscience of UFOs ” (extract from article). They then put up an article on April 1st saying it was a hoax… however, due to a possible fire hazzard they were fined $250 + 50 hours community service.


Device Daily.com ” Another weird UFO over China

ufo-guangzhou Coming in fresh is another UFO report from China, this time from the Guangzhou University area.The UFO seemingly hovered amidst some pretty heavy cloud cover above the university and its surrounding environs.

Will this end all the speculation/answer your questions?…probably not.

The Chattanoogan.com ” Roy Exum: Those Nevada UFOs

littlegreenmen But not all of them stayed quiet and, in the early 1960s, Project BLUEBOOK was started to fight the growing paranoia of an alien attack. Today there are 74,000 pages of reports housed in 37 cubic feet of files in the National Archives. Project BLUEBOOK was shut down in 1969 and, as unbelievable as this may well be to you, there isn’t one word that mentions Operation OXCART or the mysterious base called Area 51.
So, as you are once again led to believe there are not saucers that hover over our cornfields or aliens-on-ice high above the Nevada desert, you’ll be the smartest guy in the class if you don’t lose sight of the fact that, according to the CIA and the American government, a place called “Area 51” has never, ever, existed.
How does that go down with your Cherrios? If it bothers you, just remember I was more worried about the flying saucers

He has created something like a traveling museum, too — some 75 large panels mounted with UFO photos, scientific reports, police reports, etc ” (extract from article).

Well-known author Whitley Strieber’s April 26 entry in the “Whitley’s Journal” section of his Web site provides interesting reading about “disclosure” on UFOs and visitation to Earth by other intelligent beings ” (extract from article).

UK UFO sightings [April 2009] Updated regularly

Posted by dandare on April 12, 2009


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.ufo

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.


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). 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.



ComputerWorld.com ” British UFO hacker’s supporters rally at US embassy in London

At today’s rally, McKinnon’s mother, Janis Sharp, and six other demonstrators performed a rewritten version of “Chicago,” a protest song recorded nearly 40 years ago by Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young fame. Nash granted Sharp permission to modify the song’s lyrics to focus on her son’s legal plight as well as his autism ” (extract from article).


Bournemouth Echo ” I saw a UFO over Bournemouth and i’m not crazee

DON’T accuse him of being all crazee now – but rocker Noddy Holder of Slade says he felt the noize when he had a close encounter with a UFO in Bournemouth.
The colourful star, most famous for the ubiquitous festive hit Merry Xmas Everybody, said he saw a circular flying saucer, emitting beams of light, flying over the sea while staying in the town
” (extract from article).


This is Grimsby ” UFOs or a trick of the light?

SATELLITES and space stations have both been offered as explanations for strange lights seen in the sky over North East Lincolnshire.
As reported, two people independently contacted the Grimsby Telegraph about the odd occurrences which they saw in the Laceby area
” (extract from article).




Telegraph ” UFO photographed over London


The computer engineer was able to take one shot of the object whilst it was stationary for a few seconds. He said: “Then it moved rapidly up and above at incredible speed, a comparable speed to a fighter jet at full power, so fast that panning the camera in the direction was impossible ” ” (extract from article).


BBC “ Dr Who link to UFO sighting rise ” ** (all links with 2 stars relate to same article)

Nick Pope mentions that the increase in UK sightings is partly to do with chinese lanterns becoming more popular in this country; true.

However, he then starts going way off track with comments like :

dandare_avatar_createdMr Pope, who continues his research into the phenomena of UFOs on a private basis, said he believed the revitalisation of the Doctor Who franchise had made people more open to seeing UFOs ” (extract from article).

He then states that it is being covered on Newsnight (bbc2 indepth show on the news) and the SUN (which he works at). First off, i do believe that chinese lanterns have had a large impact on UFO sightings, but Doctor Who has not….this is total rubbish.

But hang on there is more …. he mentions:

“One case that springs to mind is the recent incident at RAF St Athan when a police helicopter was apparently nearly hit by a UFO.
“Another near collision happened last year over Birmingham when the pilot had to take evasive action to avoid hitting a UFO.
“This is why their investigation is important”
” (extract from article).

I’m afraid again i have to question these sightings, that THE SUN took a particular interest in. Where are the facts, and the data for this……..They usually never seem to follow up with any more evidence, but just carry on saying its a definate UFO sighting…..or they have selective data of a sentational kind if they do follow up!

This should be retitled ” Media are the reason for UFO sightings rise

Whitehaven News ” UFO over the recre

As they were chatting, Trevor looked up and saw five orange orbs all moving in a perfect ‘W’ formulation.
“There was no explanation for it,’’ he said. “The lights were about 400-500ft in the sky, evenly spaced and there wasn’t any noise.’’ He said there wasn’t any wind and the lights were moving at speed, which could eliminate Chinese lanterns as an explanation

More UFO maps of possible interest

Posted by dandare on April 6, 2009

Whilst looking around Google maps, came across some interesting maps compiled by numerous people…. some were more handy than others.

The useful ones that i have so far found are:

AUFORN have compiled sightings from Australia



Australian UFO Encounters

The AUFORN site can be seen here

HBCC UFO sightings January 2008

This map does not seem to download on here at all well; please enlarge it (using the – button quite a few times, and map with sightings eventually comes into view. Or click view larger map link below this, again increase map size, to see sightings.

HBCC links on the map do not work (i think web site links,e ct changed recently). However, there usually is a long description to go with the sightings on the map. It is also linked to Book of THoTH. HBCC can be found here .

Eyes on the skies

No website/blog that i am aware of, links to news stories on this map are still working for now.

Irish UFO sightings by Ciaran

UFO sightings by peter w

“local ufo sighting from places I read about on http://www.nuforc.org and other places”

ALso i put in UFO sightings in google maps, with All results, and it came out with a loads of sightings (from good and bad sources), and has numerous results. Take some of these with a pinch of salt. I cannot guarantee the links that you click on, do not lead to other sites that are buggy, ect (i did check quite a few and found nothing wrong with them).

To search the rest of the results (alot of pages) click on view larger map (link).

Also, i have not checked all these maps to see if they are totally  accurate.

If you have other maps you find or have done, please e-mail me (at the address above).

Of course, for North America  we have UFOmags.com . a great resource and accurate (and normally pretty up to date; latest one is for march 2009) Slightly further down, below map is additional information, including UFO maps in google earth. They also have a blog here .

Also from MUFON (very accurate; their own case data), is UFO Stalker here .

Another slight slant on the map idea, can be seen at UFOMaps.EU . It has a map of Europe, you click on say France and a google results page comes up with sightings and UFO related stuff, from France.

(Link below should hopefully update as i go along).

Also just found this interesting link called Track This Now on this page is a world map; in search area, put ufos, UFO sightings and then the search button. The map will fill with placemarks (some are a bit inaccurate) with news from that country. Click the placemarks to see information.

You can also do this for twitter entries. Interesting and it gives another source of info.
