UFO Hunter Says Object Goes Dark And Avoids People - Nevada

Posters Comments
Close up video of a UFO I captured near my home in Las Vegas Nevada on October 17, 2014.
I knew it was only a matter of time before I was finally able to get much closer to this amazing UFO and all of its traveling companions. I do wish I could have gotten closer but living in a big city means I am going to have distractions in the form of cars, trucks and motorcycles. 

I honestly don't know what this thing is but I have started to believe that it prefers to avoid people if possible. There were a number of times that it went lights out because of people being in the area. As soon as they left it lit right back up and continued on its way. What ended up stopping it completely was a car that went even closer than me with its headlights on. The people in the car did turn them off but not before the object went dark for the final time. I had parked my car behind a large metal utility box and tried to stay low key. If it knew I was there it didn't seem to care.

A Very Bizarre Alien And UFO Encounter In 1873 - Ohio

ZANESVILLE – Almost 200 years ago, Morgan County, Ohio farmer Thomas Inman was walking home from Philo when he had what one researcher believes could be one of the earliest accounts of a close encounter of the third kind.

“The blazing object flickered and flared for a few moments and then faded into darkness as a man dressed in a complete suit of black and carrying a lantern emerged from it. The man walked a few paces and stepped into a buggy ... There was no horse attached to this supernatural vehicle, but no sooner had the man taken his seat than it started to run, noiselessly but with great velocity, along the highway ... when buggy, man and lantern suddenly disappeared as mysteriously as they came.”

This incident, described in the writings of a Zanesville historian and journalist William Alexander Taylor in The New York Herald on April 5, 1873, sounds familiar but is unique for its time.

The early date at which it was told has drawn the attention of author Chris Aubeck, who traveled to Zanesville from his home in Spain this month to further research the incident as well as several others for an upcoming book. Aubeck previously collaborated with French astrophysicist and astronomer Jacques Vallee to write “Wonders in the Sky.”

“The topic of UFOs seems to be very modern because it involves extraterrestrials and high technology, but in fact, we’ve been talking about that for 200 years,” Aubeck said.

Although Aubeck said he doesn’t necessarily believe in the strange phenomena he studies, he does believe they play an important part in society.

“I think it’s something that’s a part of human culture and therefore should be studied as we study all kinds of literature and genres of all kinds,” he said.

Aubeck heard of the story from Kay Massingill, a Mississippi woman who found the story looking through old newspaper archives and contacted Aubeck through the Magonia Exchange, his online community. The two began investigating the article’s claims three years ago, and what they have found so far leads them to believe the article might not be just a tall tale.

Through genealogical records, it was determined Inman and his son did live during the time period. Taylor also was real and was related to Inman. Finding this connection to real records casts much of Aubeck’s thoughts that the article might be a hoax aside, as he finds that, in small historical communities, witnesses to fake phenomena often are invented.

“In a small community, you don’t really want to use anyone’s name because everyone knows each other,” he said. “No one would get away with it. ... So you would imagine that (residents) would immediately know that this wasn’t true. There’d be no point.”

The originality of the event’s description also is convincing to Aubeck. Elements such as a horseless buggy and other high-tech ideas such as a UFO would be unusual to find during that time period, Aubeck said, especially in such an isolated area.

“There were no cars. There was nothing people could have related this to,” Aubeck said. “It was isolated from any kind of science fiction. There was nothing at that time that was even similar to this, so that in and of itself is a strange thing. ... It suggests something truly did happen.”

Aubeck and Massingill spent their time in Zanesville interviewing locals, searching through records and trying to determine the probable site of the sighting.

“I have a reputation of being quite a skeptical researcher, or at least I try to get to the place where something happened or try to get to the source rather than just accept it as a strange story,” Aubeck said.

The story might not put Zanesville on the supernatural map, he said, but it should provide insight to a strange tale that’s survived two centuries.

“In a sense, it’s like trying to bring back to life or commemorate something that shouldn’t be completely forgotten.”


The Andreasson Affair A Bizarre Alien Abduction Story

“The Andreasson Affair” True Story of a Close Encounter

“The Andreasson Affair: The True Story of a Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind”

In the early 1990s, Dr. John Mack, a Harvard University psychiatrist, inquired into what, exactly, goes on with people who say they were kidnapped by aliens. Skeptical but curious, he interviewed scores of people over several years. In the end, he concluded that neither mental illness nor dishonesty was behind their claims. He said that, while he had never seen an alien himself, the most sensible answer was that only the people’s own stories adequately explained their recollections.

Dr. J. Allen Hynek
Another well-credentialed investigator of UFOs was Dr. J. Allen Hynek, an astrophysicist who wrote the introduction to Raymond Fowler’s “The Andreasson Affair,” first published in 1979 and now reissued. Hynek devised the well-known phrase “close encounter” to categorize reports of UFO sightings: CE-I, a UFO seen within 500 feet; CE-II, a UFO that left physical traces; CE-III, a UFO with “animated creatures.” Other investigators added another category, close encounters of the fourth kind, to cover reports of abduction experiences.

Fowler, of Kennebunk, has spent much of his life making detailed investigations into UFO and abduction reports. His book “The Allagash Abductions” is the main source of information for the well-known incident that took place on Eagle Lake in August 1976. It transcribes and discusses the content of hypnosis sessions the four participants underwent to retrieve memories of being taken into a craft they saw hovering above the lake one dark night, of being examined, and then returning to their campsite.

“The Andreasson Affair” takes the same approach. It’s made up mainly of passages from transcriptions of hypnosis sessions in which Betty Andreasson and her daughter, Becky, describe events that took place in (and beyond) their house in South Ashburnham, Mass., in late January 1967. The story is, not to put too fine a point on it, bizarre.

The family sees a bright light outside. The power goes out briefly. Then their waking memories get fuzzy. But nagged by strange imagery from the dreamlike incident, Betty 10 years later hears of Hynek’s research and writes to him. Hynek tells Fowler, and Betty is convinced to try hypnosis regression. Under hypnosis, she tells the story of a classic abduction incident – classic because, as Mack and others knew, the many reports have generally similar patterns and events.

Betty describes being led out of the house by entities about 4 feet tall with “gray skins and large, outsized pear-shaped heads [and] … large, wraparound catlike eyes.” They reassure her throughout the encounter, take her into a ship, through tunnels, into examining rooms and to places completely elsewhere, some of the details holding religious implications, then home. They tell her she has been chosen to reveal a message to humanity involving the overruling importance of love and spirituality.

The fascinating question for most readers, of course, is: This really happened?
Fowler doesn’t address the question directly. He sticks mainly to Betty’s narrative, whose events he seems to understand implicitly to be real. He offers comments and comparisons to other abduction accounts, and this 2014 edition adds some summary material to its predecessors, which include “The Andreasson Affair – Phase Two” (1983) and “The Andreasson Legacy” (1997).
How you receive all this depends on how you go into it. If you think close-encounter reports are hoaxes or mental illnesses, you won’t get much. If like John Mack you’re curious about what actually is happening, then there’s plenty of food for thought whether you believe in aliens or not.

You might even decide to treat this book like it’s fiction, and then, while it’s not exactly polished prose, its events pile on with disturbing effect.
And as they do, a nagging question courses underneath: If this was somehow real, what the hell is going on here?

Senator Richard Russell's UFO Sighting in Russia

Powerful US Senator Sees UFOs in Russia - 1955

Artist Impression of Senator Richard Russell
UFO sighting from a train in Russia

Georgia Senator Richard B. Russell was a major figure in the U.S. Senate. As head of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he exerted enormous influence over the American defense establishment. 

When he spoke, the military listened. So when Russell reported what he had seen while traveling through the Soviet Union, no one laughed-and hardly anyone outside official circles knew of his remarkable experience until years later.

Just after 7 P.M. on October 4, 1955, while on a train in the Transcaucasia region, the senator happened to gaze out a window to the south. To his considerable astonishment his eyes focused on a large disc-shaped object slowly ascending as a flame shot from underneath it. The object then raced north across the tracks in front of the train. Russell scurried to alert his two companions, who looked out to see a second disc do what the first had just done. At that moment Soviet trainmen shut the curtains and ordered the American passengers not to look outside.

As soon as they arrived in Prague, Czechoslovakia, the three men went to the United States embassy and sat down with Lt. Col. Thomas S. Ryan, the air attaché. Russell's associate, Lt. Col. E. U. Hathaway, told Ryan that they were about to report something extremely important-"but something that we've been told by your people [the U.S. Air Force] doesn't exist."

Soon rumors about the senator's sighting reached America, but when a reporter for the Los Angeles Examiner tried to obtain details, Russell said only, "I have discussed this matter with the affected agencies and they are of the opinion that it is not wise to publicize this matter at this time." The report was not declassified until 1985. Interestingly, one of the "affected agencies" was not Project Blue Book, which never received the report. Apparently, the event was too sensitive for so lowly a project

Family Sees Blue UFO Hover Over Their Home - Virginia

Virginia Witness Takes Photos Of Silent Rod Like UFO Over Home

Images taken by Richmond UFO witness

A Virginia witness at Richmond reported watching and photographing a “small, glowing, rod-shaped UFO hovering silently in a neighbor’s tree,” according to testimony in Case 61042 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database. reports that:
The witness was outside walking when the object was first noticed about 11:33 p.m. on August 24, 2014.

“I was prompted to notice a small, glowing, weird rod-shaped object hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground in the flimsy, leafy, outer branches of a large tree behind a house in my tranquil, heavily-wooded suburban neighborhood of Stratford Hills in Richmond, Virginia,” the witness stated.

UFO was seen hovering 
The area is part of the witnesses’ regular walking route.

The witness described the object.

“The silent UFO first was rod-shaped with a glowing blue light on the left end and a pinkish-violet light on the right end. It was hovering horizontally in a place where a human could not be. It was not a new-fangled bug zapper and there are no cable-TV or electric lines running near the tree and definitely not at that height. No logic for the uncanny faintly-glowing lights in the tree.”

The witness used an iPhone 4S with no zoom to shoot video of the object and then switched to shooting still images in order to zoom in. Thirty images were shot over a 10-minute period.

Pope Francis Says Intelligent ET Life Is "Part Of God's Plan" - Video

In a statement before the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on October 27, Pope Francis I endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life – which he refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” 

The Pope’s statement is a surprising endorsement of the view that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe can be part of a universal plan by “God the creator”. Pope Francis’s statement is preparing the Catholic world that extraterrestrial life visiting our world in UFOs may be part of “the plan of the creator.”
