UFO Video Taped from Passenger Plane?

UFO Video Taped from Passenger Plane?

     An airline passenger allegedly recorded video of a UFO through the plane’s window.

The plane and the UFO were reportedly flying over Liverpool, England. The roughly two-minute video shows the mysterious bright UFO in the clouds, flying along the same trajectory as the plane. Although the UFO initially looks like an ordinary aircraft in the distance, it later makes an incredibly sudden descent.

The speed at which the object changes its flight path and descends rules out known aircraft. Some believe the object is simply a bird. But birds generally don’t fly 400 m.p.h. like a commercial airliner. . . .

'Roswell Alien Slides' Owner Speaks Out

Adam Dew

    There has been a lot of online buzz around photographs that one researcher has called a “smoking gun” when it comes to proof that aliens are visiting Earth. Even though there are many articles, blogs, interviews, and forum posts about the pictures, the public has yet to actually see them. They will be displayed during a special event hosted by Mexican Broadcast Journalist Jaime Maussan in Mexico City on May 5, 2015.

Among the buzz is speculation about what the pictures show, questions as to why they will be shown in Mexico, and questions as to how the pictures were found in the first place. The pictures are owned by a production company, and the owner of that company, Adam Dew, is creating a documentary about the slides titled Kodachrome. He says the trailer to Kodachrome shows everything they know to this point. However, as questions are answered, more arise.

I caught up with Dew to ask him about some of the outstanding questions and to address some of the speculation out there. . . .

. . . She found around 400 pictures, some of them were of famous people. The box was coming apart, and she found a couple of slides wrapped up and tucked under the others.

Dew says, “She was able to project them and she thought they were very interesting.”

Dew described what she saw: “When most people see the slides first hand, they think the slides look like what we think, what we have been conditioned to think, an alien would like.”

The woman and her brother brought the slides to Dew since he was in the video business, and Dew and his friend began investigating their origins.

Dew says the pictures were on Kodachrome slides, and are not “perfectly in focus.” He says, “Kodachrome never responded well to poor lighting.”

However, he says he did find them very compelling.

Dew says their first task was to date the slides. He says, “We wanted to date the slides, because we knew people might think they were hoaxed and staged.”

As we have covered in past stories about the slides, the film and its slide cover have been allegedly confirmed to be from the late 40s. To Dew this proves that the film is not doctored.

“That is the first thing people say is that it is a hoax,” says Dew. “Even Neil deGrasse Tyson. When I showed them to Neil deGrasse Tyson, his first response was that these are fake. Well, they are not fake. . . .

Scientific Ufology - the Way To Go


By Keith Basterfield

2-27-15

     Eddie Bullard

In his 2010 book, "The Myth and Mystery of UFOs," US researcher Eddie Bullard listed his thoughts on categories of people who study UAP. Among his categories were "skeptics," "activists," and "scientific ufologists."

What did Bullard write about "scientific ufologists?" In part he wrote:

"For this group UFOs are a phenomenon accessible to rational inquiry. These people pursue in-depth case investigations, critical examination of the evidence, comparison of collected data and rigorous research projects to determine if any UFO reports describe an unknown phenomenon...Exemplified by Hynek and McDonald, professed by the leading UFO organisations, this scientific approach represents ufology in the purist sense of a scientific or scholarly discipline." (p.15.)

My own approach

In looking at my own approach to the subject, I clearly fit into being a "scientific ufologist." I have conducted in-depth case investigations, and equally as important in my view, I have extensively published my research findings. Readers of my blog will be aware of my numerous "cold case" reviews (for a listing and links to these, click here.) I also have published in-depth reports on current cases I have been involved in, e.g. the 19 March 2014 Perth, Western Australia aircraft near-miss with an "unknown object" (click here to read the NARCAP technical report.) or the 29 May 2014 very unusual incident on the south coast of New South Wales (click here.)

Each of my "cold case" reviews involved a critical re-examination of the evidence, almost always drawn from tracking down and closely looking at original documentation, some of which no-one else had seen before.

"Hot air"

The opposite of my scientific approach to the subject, is to be seen in the work of some "investigators" who also claim to be researching the subject using a "scientific" approach. Here, in my opinion, there is much "hot air," and little or no substance.

Recently, I have tried to locate any written, detailed case reports published by three individuals who claim to be following a "scientific" approach. Two are Australian and one is American. I failed to find a single published, detailed case report of theirs on the Internet, or in UAP Magazines/Newsletters/Journals. This is suggestive that, despite their claim to follow a "scientific" approach, they fail to live up to this approach.

My process

Attracting raw reports via electronic Internet forms on websites, is simply the first step in the process. It is too easy these days for anyone to submit an electronic report to UAP groups. A look at the types of reports being made to various electronic databases, reveals the questionable nature of some of them, e.g. how many are straight out hoaxes?

Once reported to an electronic system, or indeed via telephone, the old fashioned letter, or any other means, the next stage in the process should be to conduct an investigation by contacting the witness. Some raw reports are made anonymously and therefore no follow up is possible. In my opinion, an un-investigated anonymous report has little value.

When contact details are given, it is then necessary to speak to the witness in person. Reporting by someone in Australia, to an overseas database may mean no local interview is performed by anyone.
This face to face interview is critical. Besides taking note of the details of the reported occurrence, an experienced investigator will also gain a "feel" for the genuineness of the reporter and hence the report. My preference is to conduct this face to face interview at the site of the incident, wherever possible.

Analysis

Once details of the event are recorded, the next step is to critically examine of these details. A check for aircraft movements; planets; stars; satellites needs to be made. The weather at the time should be investigated. For a full list of investigative tools, click here. By this analysis, I am looking to see if a mundane explanation could explain the observation. My experience, and that of others, is that 95% of incoming raw reports have conventional explanations.

Publication

As I mentioned above, I rate publishing the details of investigations and research, equally as important as carrying out a detailed investigation. This allows for a scientific "peer review" of both your data and your conclusions, a very important part of the scientific process.

Sometimes, this also attracts the attention of members of the mass media. An example of this are remarks I made at the 2014 Melbourne, VUFOA conference, about the need for an Australian quick response team. The following morning, newspaper and radio items appeared about my remarks. I did not seek this publicity, it simply followed me presenting a conference paper. As a result I was asked to go on a number of radio shows to be interviewed about my thoughts. I carefully selected those on which to appear, and turned other requests down.

Similarly, the mass media picked up on aspects of the research conducted by myself about the 19 March 2014 Perth near-miss, between an aircraft and an unknown object. I did not seek out this publicity, it simply followed publication of my research. I turned down a number of requests to be interviewed about the case. I find it odd, therefore, that an Australian researcher recently has suggested that I am "seeking publicity." This is not so. I reject something like 9 out of 10 mass media requests for interviews, including one recent approach from Channel 9 television to discuss pilot observations.

My process

So, my process is, collect incoming raw reports; conduct a personal interview (on site if possible); document the evidence presented by the witness; followed by an analysis; then preparing a detailed, written case report, and finally publishing it for peer review. This process produces a small, but screened, number of examples of the "core" UAP each year.

The above is how I believe that a scientific investigation of UAP should be conducted. Looking around, both overseas and here in Australia, I see far too many people who state they are following a "scientific" approach, who fall short of the standards I expect of my own research. I realise that this is not something that some people will like to hear, but I tell it as I see it.

Veteran Injured By UFO While On Duty; Full Medical Disability Now Granted


Vet says government has acknowledged he was injured by UFO while on duty

John Burroughs
A U.S. Air Force veteran believes a UFO incident he experienced while on duty in 1980 is the root of his current health problems. However, initially the government denied he was on active duty at the time. With the help of a lawyer and U.S. Senator John McCain’s office, his records have been corrected and he has received his full medical disability. He and his lawyer now claim their victory represents the “U.S. government’s de facto acknowledgement of the existence of UFOs.”

John Burroughs was serving as a U.S. Air Force police officer at Royal Air Force Base (RAF) Bentwaters, near the Rendelsham Forest in Suffolk, United Kingdom in December 1980 when the UFO incident took place. The base, along with its sister base, RAF Woodbridge, were on lease to the U.S.

The event became a large story in the UK, and is still debated to this day.

Burroughs, who along with an airman named James Penniston approached closest to the object, feels his health issues stem from his proximity to the UFO. He has since found a document that was created by UK Defence Intelligence that also speculates this could be the case. A section of the report that covers UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) – another term for UFO – radiation, speculates, ”The well-reported Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters event is an example where it might be postulated that several observers were probably exposed to UAP radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods.”

Burroughs has since suffered from congestive heart failure, which he says he has been told by scientists can be caused by radiation exposure. . . .

      A mysterious plume of material reaching high into the Martian atmosphere has scientists buzzing about the Red Planet — and they have amateur astronomers to thank for spotting the baffling feature.

Wayne Jaeschke is a patent lawyer by day, but most nights, you can find him in his observatory, pointing a telescope skyward. In March 2012, Jaeschke spotted what looked like a dust cloud popping off the surface of Mars. Two years later, he is a co-author on a scientific paper investigating the nature of the perplexing Mars plumes.

"You know, 999,999,999 times out of a million, when the amateur astronomers see something in an astronomical photo, the professionals have seen it as well, or they have a theory for explaining it," Jaeschke said. "But this is a rare case where no one has been able to explain it."

FEMA Secrets

     In my years of researching underground bases I have discussed several locations in previous editorials which are being used by the military and our elected officials in Washington, as a place to continue the government and military operations in the event of a nuclear attack or other major disaster. Originally these were referred to as part of the “Continuity of Government.”

Mount Weather facility at Bluemont, VA
Mount Weather facility at Bluemont, VA

One of those locations I had mentioned included Mount Weather near Bluemont, Virginia. In the event of a nuclear war, or other national emergency, the President, his cabinet and the executive branch would be located here underground. It is also the operational hub of approximately 100 other Federal Relocation Centers operated by FEMA in the United States.

Raven Rock
Raven Rock
Another location I previously mentioned was the Raven Rock location in Maryland, established in 1954, containing a 700,000 square foot underground facility, which if needed, would house all military departments and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Greenbrier Resort
The Greenbrier Resort
A third facility previously discussed in my editorials, was the Greenbrier Resort southwest of Washington. That facility, secretly built “underneath the resort” could have housed about a thousand people, including all members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and their top aides. It was located about 250 miles from Washington and easily accessible by air, train or car. This facility was deactivated in 1992, when the Washington Post published an article about this underground bunker, exposing it to the public. I have not yet been able to locate a replacement facility for Greenbrier, but surely it exists somewhere close to Washington.

Is it not reassuring for you to know that our top military and elected officials have places to go underground in the event of a national emergency, while you and I (the common people that pay for their well being), are most likely left to fend for ourselves above ground?

My curiosity was aroused when I realized that the three facilities mentioned above were affiliated with FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency), whose Mission Statement is described as follows: “FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate hazards.“

FEMA does in fact show up to offer assistance in emergencies such as floods, hurricanes, tornados etc., however, there is another side to FEMA most Americans are not aware of.

Originally conceived in the Richard Nixon Administration, it was refined and President Jimmy Carter signed an executive order on April 1, 1979 that created the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In 2014 FEMA had 14, 844 employees across the country at headquarters and ten regional offices. Many former separate agencies are now under the umbrella of FEMA, and that agency is constantly growing in size. Under President Obama’s fiscal 2015 budget proposal, the Federal Emergency Management Agency would receive $10.38 billion (that’s billion with a B), up from $9.96 billion enacted for this year. FEMA only spends a small percentage of it’s budget on national emergencies, while a much larger portion is used for the construction of secret underground facilities to ensure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic.

FEMA’s administrative headquarters is located in Atlanta Georgia and their tactical headquarters are located at Mt. Weather, mentioned above in Bluemont Virginia. What lies below the surface is quite different from what is seen on the surface above ground, with well-kept government communication-type office buildings with antennas and microwave relay systems. This facility has been referred to as the “hidden parallel government” of the United States.

FEMA, as one might suppose, has the most advanced communication and data compiling technology available. Their massive data bank includes information on practically every citizen in the U.S., and your name is most likely in that data bank they maintain. There is another list of individuals FEMA maintains that your name is not on. That list comprises about 10,000 people, in addition to the President and his selected staff, who are considered “essential” people to insure the rebirth and continued survival of the country after a nuclear war wipes out the rest of us. I guess my question would be, “Who will these essential people govern if we’re all gone on the surface?”

Among other things located underground at this facility is a mass transit system. Since Mt. Weather is the hub of a network of about 100 other underground facilities, connector routes allow for quick relocation of personnel to the other locations.

Many of our military complexes in the United States have underground facilities, as do other countries around the world, which is understandable to me considering that due to the use of satellites, much of their secretive work can no longer be done above ground. As an example White Sands, N.M., Area 51 in Nevada, Edwards Air Force Base in California and many more military bases around the country all have massive underground facilities in use.

There is much more that FEMA is responsible for than I mentioned in this brief account, and I can assure you most of it has nothing to do with aiding citizens in times of weather related emergencies and disasters around the country. The majority of Americans are unaware of the massive size of FEMA, and more frightening is the power they possess to control our lives.

      The woman went to make her way back to bed when she suddenly spotted the two lights out of her window

Two orb-like unidentified objects were spotted floating in the sky above Barwell.

A 41-year-old woman from Earl Shilton spotted the two balls of bright white light in the early hours of February 3.

The woman was woken by a strange noise at 4.50am.

She thought it was coming from downstairs so she got out of bed and went to see what it was.

After finding nothing the woman went to make her way back to bed when she suddenly spotted the two lights out of her window.

The alien spheres appeared to be floating over Barwell. . . .

MJ-12 and Bill Moore

By Kevin Randle
A Different Perspective
2-28-15

     As I go through files and reports and other documents, I sometimes find a little item that was not very important a decade or two ago but that has taken on added significance. Such is a note about Barry Greenwood and the late Japanese UFO investigator Jun-Ichi Takanashi. Takanashi bought a copy of The Mystery of the Green Fireballs from Bill Moore which in and of itself isn’t all that exciting. Some of the documents that Moore had found were poor quality and difficult to read so that Moore, as apparently was his habit, retyped some of them to improve the legibility.

Takanashi wondered if the unusual dating format that Moore used in many of his letters and documents had been used in the original documents that Moore had retyped. That dating format was seen in some of them. Takanashi sent a query to Greenwood who then searched the Project Blue Book files until he located the original documents concerning the Green Fireballs. According to what Greenwood wrote in the June 1990 issue of Just Cause, “In all four cases where the documents were retyped, Moore had changed dates from the proper standard format to his own style by adding not only an extra comma to the dates but, in the case of the 9 February 1949 memo, a preceding zero before a single digit date where none had existed before!”

This is another bit of evidence that Moore had a hand in creating the MJ-12 documents. His unusual dating format has crept into other documents that he had admitted to retyping because of the poor quality of the originals. The two features, the extra comma and the use of the zero in front of the single digit dates, were not used by the military or the government at the time… For those who still believe that MJ-12 is authentic, this is just more evidence that it isn’t.

I should point out that Barry Greenwood printed this information twenty-five years ago so it has been out there for a long time. Although there are those who suggest they have found examples of government documents that reflect this bizarre dating format, it makes little difference because clearly Moore did use it. Besides, most of those other documents were created under special circumstances or by foreign military and government organizations. Apparently only Moore used it with any regularity and here it is another of his fingerprints on MJ-12. I wonder how many more we need.
