Posted by dandare on March 28, 2013

Published on 16 Jan 2013

via The Case of the UFOs – 1982 Documentary – YouTube.

Even though an old documentary, it shows that caution is needed in the field of Ufology, and i find it proves that alot of fakes are out there. I think it illustrates it’s points well.

World UFO Sightings March 2013

Posted by dandare on March 25, 2013

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

alienssPlease 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.

ufo-updatesSome 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.

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].

The 3-foot-tall lanterns, purchased online, have fuel-treated cardboard attached underneath that when ignited causes them to expand and lift into the air. They float for a while and then are supposed to disintegrate.

“I had no idea this had frightened anybody,” LaChapelle said. “It had gone all over the Internet, with people calling them UFOs or drones, thinking we were under attack.”

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].

“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].

Damon Lindelof might be the most famous graduate from the J.J. Abrams School of Secrecy, and it looks like the master of marketing has taught his protege well. Lindelof is teaming with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird for a new Disney science fiction movie formerly called 1952 and now titled Tomorrowland, but the cryptic campaign has only given enough info for fanboy speculation so far. Earlier this week, D23 took a more detailed look at what was in the mystery box labled “1952,” and now it seems that Disney expert Jim Hill (via AICN) may have just put the puzzle pieces together.

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).

World UFO Sightings December 2012 [part 1 of 2]

Posted by dandare on December 2, 2012

ufosa-hot-topic

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.redalienketchup

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.
