Man in the UK Has Had 8 UFO Sightings in 3 Months, Photos

Newton Abbot man claims to have spotted eight UFOs in three months above Devon sky

A Devon, (UK) man sent the torquay herald these photos and they filed this story.

A NEWTON Abbot man claims to have spotted EIGHT UFOs in the past three months.

John Mooner, who describes himself as the chief photographer for world UFO photos, has been sending the Herald Express his sightings ever since June.

So far he has managed to capture what he believes are eight UFOs on camera.

They include what he describes as: an alien with a big red perm, a bright orange light that gave him the creeps, a UFO checking out a Virgin Atlantic passenger plane, an alien sticking its tongue out and an 'entity wearing a bear pelt' which he thought could be a 'skin walker' or 'moth man'.

The sightings have sparked debate as to whether Mr Mooner has managed to capture proof of alien existence. Some people think they may just be flecks on Mr Mooner's camera.

On June 29, he wrote to tell us that he got 'bored' of watching a Brexit debate on television and turned his attention to the skies, when he spotted what at first, he thought was a star. However, after zooming into the mystery object, Mr Mooner was left 'gobsmacked' to see 'someone looking back' at him. (See his picture below)

The star 'appeared to be moving', so Mr Mooner zoomed in, only to find that what he had first thought to be a star, was actually what he claimed to be an 'alien craft and its occupant'.

He said: "I was gobsmacked there was someone looking back at me."

On July 10, he spotted a UFO which 'gave him the creeps' over the town when he saw a bright light hanging above a nearby housing estate in at 1.20am on Sunday. (His picture is below)

He said: "The object was definitely not any type of known aircraft. The object was glowing bright orange and had a white pulsing light on the top left side. The object was large and just hung there silently over the housing estate it gave me the creeps."

On July 18, he was sky watching when he says he spotted "a cigar shaped UFO that was moving slowly across the sky. The cigar shaped UFO had white smoke coming out of the end."

He said: "An alien being with black eyes then proceeded to stick his head out from the back of the cigar shaped UFO and looked in my direction. The alien then stuck it's long tongue out at me and then smiled. What the hell. They have tongues? I managed to capture the alien in the photograph."

On July 22, he wrote to us again to say he was outside in the garden soaking up the sun and looking around the sky for anything strange and out of place. He watched a plane fly over and decided to take some photographs of the plane

He sent us these pictures (below): "With that something very odd caught my eye. I quickly took some photographs of the unknown before it flew up high into the sky and out of sight. The unknown thing moved so fast it was hard to take photographs of it but I managed to take two photographs in total.

"Looking at the photographs I could see I had captured something very strange, bizarre in fact. In the first photograph the unknown thing looks like some type of entity wearing a bear pelt could this be a skin walker?. In the second photograph it looks more like the mothman entity that I witnessed back in 1993. The only difference I could see was that the entity was gold in color and not black also the wings on it's back were closed."

Two days later, on July 24, Mr Mooner was outside once more when he noticed an object that was jet black and had an almond-shaped light on the front of it.

He said: "The almond shaped light had a yellowish tinge to it. Also there was smoke that came out of the back of the object as it moved." This is the picture he sent to the Herald Express at that time.

On August 18, he could see several objects that were flying in close proximity to each other. The objects were white and were cigar shaped.

He said: "One of the cigar shaped objects was larger than the other ones. The smaller ones were pencil-like and appeared to be docking with the larger one."

On August 26, he sent us this picture which he says show a UFO checking out a Virgin Atlantic passenger plane. The UFO flew around the back of the Virgin Atlantic passenger plane before it moved off into the distance, he said.

Finally, this week on September 17, Mr Mooner saw a strange object in a blue part of the sky.

He said: "The object just hung silently in the sky without moving. I had my Sony HX300 at the ready and I zoomed on the object. I could clearly see that it was no known aircraft the object reminded me of helmet with a visor."

The Day UFOs Invaded The Airspace Over Washington DC

The Day UFOs Invaded Washington DC
Many times people ask, “If aliens are here, why don’t they land on the White House lawn?” Well, you may be surprised to know, in 1952, Washington, D.C. was buzzed by UFOs. Jets were scrambled, but, according to the jet pilots, they could not catch the mysterious objects. These UFO incursions took place on several occasions, and on one of them, U.S. Air Force UFO investigators were prepared to observe the whole affair. Sure enough, they witnessed one of these events from the control tower at Washington National Airport.
Perhaps the most thorough examination into the UFO issue was conducted by the U.S Air Force. They began their investigation in 1948. It was called Project Sign, then its name was changed to Project Grudge, and finally changed once again to Project Blue Book.
As for the findings, the Air Force states:
As a result of these investigations and studies and experience gained from investigating UFO reports since 1948, the conclusions of Project BLUE BOOK are:(1) no UFO reported, investigated, and evaluated by the Air Force has ever given any indication of threat to our national security;(2) there has been no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represent technological developments or principles beyond the range of present-day scientific knowledge; and(3) there has been no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” are extraterrestrial vehicles.
However, upon closer examination of the thousands of files released regarding the Blue Book investigations, it becomes apparent that the Air Force’s conclusions were not shared by everyone involved in the investigation, and that there were some truly fascinating cases that remain unsolved.
UFO sightings over Washington, D.C. in July 1952 made worldwide headlines and left the Air Force dazed and confused, according to the head of Project Blue Book at the time. The events spanned several days and included multiple radar identifications of unknown aircraft, some of which were correlated by witnesses on the ground. Many of the sightings caused the Air Force to scramble jet fighters, and in each of these cases, the UFOs outmaneuvered the jets. This all culminated into what may be the most important official Air Force UFO investigation of all time.
The investigation of the events in Washington, D.C. is best explained in a book written by the lead Air Force investigator, Captain Edward Ruppelt, the head of Project Blue Book from its inception in early 1952 until late 1953.
The summer of 1952 was a busy time for Blue Book investigators. Ruppelt referred to this period as “The Big Flap.” Some of the most credible reports were coming from the Washington, D.C. area.
On July 20, Ruppelt was flying to Washington on unrelated business. His plane landed at Washington National Airport in the morning, and he grabbed a paper to catch up on the latest news. There he found in big, bold, capitalized font, “INTERCEPTORS CHASE FLYING SAUCERS OVER WASHINGTON, D.C.”
Ruppelt immediately called his superior officer at the Pentagon and was briefed on the incident later that day at Bolling Air Force Base. At 11:40 p.m. the previous night, seven objects were caught on radar at Washington National Airport. At first, the radar operators thought the objects were a formation of planes, but nothing like that was scheduled. The objects moved slowly at about 100 to 130 miles per hour, but then would streak across the scope in sudden bursts of speed. The targets had moved all over the area, including over prohibited areas, such as the airspace above the White House and the U.S. Capitol building. One of the objects was clocked at speeds of more than 7,000 miles per hour.
One week later, it happened again. However, this time the Air Force was ready. As soon as reports began coming in, several people from the Pentagon hurried out to Washington National Airport.
At about 10:30 p.m., Washington National Airport had once again picked up the slow-moving targets. The objects were in an arc surrounding the Washington, D.C. area. The same radar operators were present from the prior event, so they were prepared and worked quickly to track the UFOs. They contacted Andrews Air Force Base who confirmed they were also tracking the objects.
At 11:30 p.m., it was decided to call in interceptors to check out the objects. Two Lockheed F-94 Starfires were in the air by midnight. At this point, reporters and photographers were asked to leave the radar room. Ruppelt says the radar room was cleared because some Air Force officers thought this might be the night they would get a good up-close look at a UFO.
The next day the press reported that fighter pilot Lieutenant William Patterson said:
I tried to make contact with the bogies below 1,000 feet, but [the radar controllers] vectored us around. I saw several bright lights. I was at my maximum speed, but even then I had no closing speed. I ceased chasing them because I saw no chance of overtaking them. I was vectored into new objects. Later, I chased a single bright light which I estimated about 10 miles away. I lost visual contact with it about 2 miles.
The papers were once again packed with headlines about the UFO chase. Ruppelt flew to Washington and when he got to his hotel, was mobbed by reporters and photographers.
According to Ruppelt, the Air Force was in a state of confusion. Unable to dodge the public’s fascination with the Washington events, on July 29, Major-General John Samford notified the press that he would have a press conference on the Washington UFO incidents. Ruppelt felt it a bit odd that none of the men in the radar room at Washington National Airport were involved in the press conference. Instead, the press conference was held by Major General Samford and another officer, neither of whom had been fully briefed.
Samford told the press that Air Force UFO investigations had turned out to be mostly misidentifications, but that the other 20 percent of the reports that came in were from “credible observers of relatively incredible things.”
He said the Air Force would continue to investigate those reports, but they suspected that the Washington, D.C. events may have been false radar readings due to temperature inversions.
According to Ruppelt, the actual investigation ruled out temperature inversions.
Alleged pictures and videos of this event can be found on the internet (photo on left). However, they are all either reflections or recreations of the incidents. No pictures or video were actually captured. However, the case remains unsolved.
Ruppelt said this case convinced many in the Air Force that UFOs were interplanetary spaceships.

Are Aliens Consciously Avoiding Earth?

Are aliens avoiding Earth?

Even with all of the advancements in modern technology, we still haven’t made contact with intelligent life on other planets. But what if our attempts to communicate have been ignored?
Is it possible Aliens just don't want to talk to us Earthlings....yet?
In 1973, a radio astronomer named John Ball came up with a possible theory as to why aliens – if they do exist – haven’t gotten back to us. Ball’s “Zoo Hypothesis” as it came to be known, posits that alien civilizations exist, and the most highly developed of them have been communicating. This elite alien “club” has come upon a mutual agreement to leave those deemed primitive or “lesser” life forms alone, only to be watched from a distance. Earthlings, therefore, did not make the cut with the galactic cool kids.
So assuming these aliens exist, under what circumstances could they all agree to keep us in the dark? A Scottish astronomer named Duncan Forgan has the answer.
“I was interested in this theory because it is so difficult to test in a scientific fashion,” Forgan told FoxNews.com. “The Zoo Hypothesis relies on us being unable to observe other aliens, so a failure to observe aliens can be used both as evidence for and against the hypothesis at the same time!”
Forgan decided to test the assumptions that make up the hypothesis, instead of the hypothesis itself. One of these assumptions is that intelligent extraterrestrials can agree on a “no contact with primitive worlds” policy.
“Agreement requires communication, which is limited by the speed of light,” Forgan explained.
This would assume that civilizations must have existed long enough for messages to go back and forth between them, a process limited by the speed of light. Another assumption is that life would be able to thrive in a galaxy–wide habitable zone. Forgan entered these assumptions into a computer program, which then went about simulating civilizations and randomly placing them around the habitable zone, measuring the distance between them and calculating the likelihood of any two of them making contact and communicating within their lifetimes.
The computer found that for a "leave the Earthlings alone" agreement to be likely, at least 500 civilizations must exist, each of them having lasted over one million years. Any less than 500 civilizations and there are too many groups of civilizations to form a pact; if any one civilization lasted less than a million years, then there are also too many civilization groups to form the galactic club. (A “civilization group,” Forgan explained, is “a collection of civilizations that are ‘culturally connected’, which basically means that a civilization is aware of the others in the group as soon as it is technologically ready.  Weirdly, the civilization groups are actually pretty well-mixed in space, which you wouldn't expect naively - the issue is their separation in space-time, not their separation in space.”)
In other words, Earth may not be in the universal doghouse after all.
“I was able to show that in general, a population of alien civilizations are sufficiently separate that instead of there being a single ‘Galactic Club’ of aliens agreeing to shield Earth, there are most likely many smaller ‘Galactic Cliques’, who are likely to disagree on whether planets like Earth should be kept in the dark,” Forgan said. “It's not really true that the computer ‘proved’ this result– it suggests that large numbers of long-lived civilizations (who all appear in the Universe in a short time interval) gives the best conditions to form a Galactic Club.”
So instead of one alien club there may be various smaller cliques scattered about the universe that haven’t managed to agree on what to do about Earth. Forgan’s paper, published at arXiv.org, notes that our planet may happen to be in a neighborhood overseen by a clique that doesn’t want to talk, which might change as our technology advances.

But is that necessarily a good thing? Some experts think it would be disastrous, with famed physicist Stephen Hawking believing advanced aliens would likely conquer and colonize Earth, as Europeans did the Americas.
Forgan said running such a scenario through the computer is unlikely at this point. “Hawking makes one of several assumptions about alien behavior to come to this conclusion: one– Aliens that explore the Galaxy in person do so because of their aggressive nature, or two– Intelligent beings only evolve from predators or naturally aggressive creatures, or three– Peaceful aliens do not explore the Galaxy,” he said. “These assumptions are tricky to test with computer simulations, as it requires us to simulate alien behavior, which we don't have any data for.”

UFO Vividly Described and Illustrated in 300 Year Old Math Book

Saucer Shaped UFO Illustrated in a Math Book From 1716

An 18th century Mathematics book shows a flying saucer on its cover. Isn't this a clear indication that aliens have been visiting the Earth for centuries?

UFO depicted on the cover of an 18th-century book
Did you think that UFOs decided to suddenly begin to hit the Earth only in the 20th century, since the 1940s, when they were spotted? Does that mean that life elsewhere made its appearance here only recently? No, UFOs were callers much earlier.

The evidence is out on that one. Even in the beginning of the last century, "mysterious airships" could be seen over UK. That spurred Winston Churchill to order a probe into it.
Full book cover

Here is another 18th century Mathematics book, whose cover shows a UFO emerging from the clouds and racing over the sea, surrounded by lightning bolts.

It is a Latin book on Mathematics, titled 'Liber De Coloribus Coeli, Accedit Oratio Inauguralis De Deo Mathematicorum Principe', written by Johann Caspar Funck, published 1716. Recently, the book got republished on Google Books.

Now, why does the cover depict the flying saucers---disc-shaped objects that look exactly like the ones that have been seen recently?

It was the Blogger Reid Moore who spun the theory that the cover image is that of a UFO. In a blog on culture website niume, Moore wrote: "The illustration depicting what is generally considered to be a 'classic' UFO shape bears more scholarly investigation. But it does support the theory that UFOs have been witnessed and chronicled throughout history. What is unusual in this case is the similarity to the 'modern' consensus of what unidentified flying objects look like."

He explained that the "aerodynamically rounded shape" of the saucer, as well as the dramatic effect of the UFO emerging from storm clouds and going forward through "electrical phenomenon, most likely a magnetic propulsion system" are all indicative of something closer to modern sightings.

He added that strange flying machines have been exhibited in art for centuries. However, what makes this image stand out is the 'classic' UFO shape. Considering that it is 300 years old, it makes us draw our conclusions.

"Is it proof that flying saucer UFOs have been visiting Earth since the early 1700s? At the very least, it's evidence that some people in the past seem to have thought so," he wrote.

Certainly, the clues do point in that direction. Moreover, this is 'only' 300 years old. Perhaps flying saucers have been hitting the Earth much earlier, though they were never depicted?

Witness Photographs UFO While Camping in Nevada

Nevada camper captures UFO Photo

Nevada witness at Denio reported watching and videotaping two objects that could not immediately be identified, according to testimony in Case 75146 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness arrived at a campground in northwest Nevada shortly after dark September 24, on a clear night and set up a campsite, sitting by the fire about 20 minutes before the incident began.

“Something flashed out the corner of my eye and made me turn my head looking to the west,” the witness stated.“I could kind of see an outline of some hills/mountains to the west as I looked to where the flashes drew my attention. Two bright yellow arcs appeared over the top of the hill/mountain.”

The witness first thought the light was two objects.

“At first I thought it was two objects. I think now it was just one moving so fast it left a trail. It made two arcs flying above the hill/mountain then diving down then back up I guess. It was a bright yellow object,no flames/jets. The object itself was glowing yellow,strangest yellow, kind of like a spark shooting up out of a fire. The spark is burning and leaving a trail as it shoots up. I had never seen anything like this.”

NASA Aims To Find Extraterrestrial Life On Mars By 2020

NASA's Mars 2020 Rover Aims To Find Extraterrestrial Life, Produce Oxygen On The Red Planet

Mars' own Grand Canyon, Valles Marineris, is shown on the surface of the planet in this composite image made aboard NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft. The image was taken from a video featuring high-resolution images from Arizona State University's Thermal Emission Imaging System multi-band camera on board the spacecraft.
NASA's Mars 2020 Rover, which is targeted to launch in July 2020, will conduct geological examinations on its landing site on Mars. It aims to determine if the Red Planet provides a habitable environment and whether there had been past or even present extraterrestrial life on the planet.
However, one of the aims of the Mars 2020 is to lay the foundation for future human exploration with its MOXIE, Mars Oxygen In-situ Resource Utilization Experiment. The device will produce oxygen from the carbon dioxide atmosphere of the Red Planet at a rate of an estimated 0.35 ounces (10 grams) per hour.
"The object is not to produce a lot of oxygen. The object is to show that the process works on Mars. MOXIE produces only about 10 [grams] per hour of oxygen, less than one percent of full scale," said Donald Rapp, one of the designers of the device. He added that MOXIE is just one of nine devices on the Mars 2020 Rover, but it's the most essential for human exploration.
According to previous data gathered from Mars, its atmosphere is 96 percent carbon dioxide. So, MOXIE is tasked to inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen, just like what plants and trees do on Earth. Basically, the device will gather carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, store it and will electrochemically divide the molecules into carbon monoxide and dioxygen.
Meanwhile, scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a novel spectroscopic technique that may help the Mars 2020 Rover to locate and find signs of present or past extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet.
The technique will help the rover analyze and identify sediments from the planet without compromising its pristine condition. This will allow scientists to identify signs of former life. Maintaining the original composition of sediments is important to make sure data is not altered and the sediments are of their original composition.
"This may help in deciding what samples the 2020 rover will archive. It will be looking for organic matter preserved in sediments, and this will allow a more informed selection of samples for potential return to Earth," said Roger Summons, professor of earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences at MIT.
