World UFO sightings November 2012 [Updated regularly] part 2 of 2

Posted by dandare on November 17, 2012

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.

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.

Also for real-time UFO map from MUFON see here

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


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].

Either way, this is a rare convergence of science and journalism, one so desperately missing from America’s unending conundrum with The Great Taboo.

He added: “They [the media] portray people interested in the subject as mad. The media are only interested in entertainment value when they don’t have much else to report on ” ” [extract from article].

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.

Indiana Jones IV (out may 2008) could have area 51 theme

Posted by dandare on January 31, 2008

According to MTV.com “Indy 4 masterminds open up about Supernatural skull” (posted 2 january,2008) it mentions that the latest film of Indiana jones will be like the X-files? but is definately set in 1957. The cast are, however keeping tight lipped about much of what the film will contain.

“Besides possibly giving Indy more of a family, the movie also gives our hero more supernatural material than ever before. “Indiana Jones [movies] aren’t action movies,” Lucas tells the mag. “They’re primarily mysteries with a supernatural object. So it’s kind of like ‘X-Files.’ ‘X-Files’ came out of this idea — instead of taking archaeological objects, they took Bigfoot and aliens and psychological mythology instead of the physical — but it amounts to the same thing.”

And there could be more overlap than ever before — especially when it comes to those pesky aliens. Combining the movie’s time frame (1957) with one of the flick’s shooting locations (New Mexico) seems to indicate an Area 51 theme. “It’s important for us that there’s a real supernatural mystery going on,” Lucas said. “Only Indiana Jones movies are supernatural-mystery movies. They’re always going after some supernatural object. It’s not a pretend object. It’s not something that we made up. It’s something that actually exists, or people believe exists — whether it does or not is in dispute. But for every person who says, ‘I don’t believe that,’ there’s another person who says, ‘Well, I believe it. I heard about it, and I saw it and there’s stories.’ “ (extract from article).

Now that could be interesting!

For the latest trailer, see below.
