There’s never a shortage of UFO stories, with arguments raging between skeptics and those who want to believe. But a pair of CIA and Area 51 retirees claims the mysterious sightings might have quite a prosaic explanation.

The mystery behind the unidentified flying objects was highlighted again recently when leaked videos – filmed by the US Navy’s Super Hornet jets – popped up in the public domain, showing the military aircraft interacting with UFOs. The Pentagon had stirred up much hype among ufologists, officially saying that the viral clips actually depicted “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP).

But for veterans of two of America’s most secretive institutions, these sightings, at least, were not at all sensational. They claim the UFO encounters can be attributed to a top-secret radar-tricking program commissioned for the military, according to the Drive.

The website’s WarZone project, which covers military tech, examined the Navy’s top-secret project, awkwardly called ‘Netted Emulation of Multi-Element Signature against Integrated Sensors’ (NEMESIS).

It enables the Navy to trick enemy sensors and radars by giving the illusion of “ghost fleets” of vessels on and below the oceanic surface; the system can also simulate formations of aircraft in the sky. Incredibly, the tech resembles another secretive project developed at the height of the Cold War, as veterans of two of America’s most secretive institutions told the website.

The NEMESIS “takes me back to circa the 1960s when the CIA designed and was building the Mach 3 A-12 Blackbird to replace the U-2,” says T.D. Barnes, a retired engineer who worked at Area 51, referring to the top-notch spy planes used to collect imagery intelligence on the USSR and its allies.

The Soviet military couldn’t sit idle as it faced the threat of American spy aircraft snapping high-definition photos and flying away undetected. They commissioned a P-14 “Tall King” radar system that would be able to detect the A-12 flying over their airspace.

On their part, the CIA had responded by launching PALLADIUM – an audacious program to develop technology which could electronically produce “ghost aircraft,” thus tricking the Soviet radars into “seeing” what is actually non-existent.

The program used “submarine-launched balloon-based metallic spheres” that would simulate flocks of real jets, reveals a retired CIA executive officer, S. Eugene Poteat. The veteran, who founded and ran PALLADIUM, said descriptions of the “metallic spheres” sound somewhat similar to those of UFOs.

Barnes, in turn, said that many past UFO sightings in the Seattle and Southern California were actually advanced aerospace tests by Boeing or Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works. The companies usually carry out “proof of concept” flights over these areas before bringing their aircraft to Area 51 in a bid to sell them to the Air Force or Navy.

“These were definitely UFOs because they were so secret that they didn’t exist,” said Barnes. The publication recalled sightings that US Navy pilots saw off the East Coast in 2014 and 2015, describing them as bizarre floating “orbs with cubes inside.”

The flying objects “had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds,” the pilots told the New York Times at the time.

“I don’t have the answers to what the Navy aviators saw, but in my mind, I’m thinking, we are doing it again,” Barnes explained.

A spectacular video shows a “cylindrical object that expels a puff of smoke” on the moon

The images presented in the August 2003 issue of Electric Space Craft, a scientific journal, have aroused enormous interest. The publication contained an extraordinary series of frames taken from NASA images included in the TV program, NOVA: To the Moon. The meaning of the images had only recently been noticed.

While Apollo 8 orbited 70 miles (113 km) above the lunar surface, with the Earth in the background, it took pictures of the ground below. At some point in the NOVA program, a small black object, tall and cylindrical, seems to protrude from the moon.

in a frame of the Apollo 8 video visible in the NOVA documentary below, you can see a small dark object on the lunar surface

In fact, just as it seems that the Apollo 8 camera is about to pass, the strange object seems to release a cloud in the form of a jet. It can be described as a funnel that expels a puff of smoke. The “cloud” moves to the right and then dissipates. Although the black object appears small on the screen, it should be hundreds or thousands of feet tall if it were actually seen from such a high altitude.

From the still images taken from the Apollo 8 video, you can see the anomaly that appears first near the center of the frame, then descends towards the lower left corner while the camera moves forward. Additional color images have been sent to us from the scientific publication.

Electric Space Craft has increased the sharpness and contrast of black and white images to clarify the scene for printing (however, you can see for yourself the real movie if you watch the documentary NOVA: To the Moon, on YouTube, (or DVD). The executive director of the magazine (and former engineer Apollo), Charles A. Yost, said that the anomaly is clearer on the VHS version due to digital compression for the DVD.

When enlarging the images, or rather the frames of the APOLLO 8 video that last 3 – 4 seconds, you can notice a puff of black smoke coming out of the cylindrical black object. Is it a funnel of a mining facility?

The object appears on the screen for two seconds (at minute 47.50) but was not mentioned in the NOVA program. Apparently it was not noticed until it was identified by the Electric Space Craft staff. At first glance, the anomaly does not seem to be dirt (dust) on the film because it can be seen in many frames, it changes when the perspective of the camera is changed and produces the inexplicable cloud-like shape that drift and vanishes. (see video below Nova: To the Moon- minute 47.50)

According to NASA, they did not have a color camera with a zoom on the Apollo 8 mission. The image in question shows clear evidence of a zoom. Therefore, unless there was an integrated camera that NASA kept secret, this zoom effect should not be seen. There are people who claim that NASA had a lot of secret cameras on board, but if so, then why did this “secret” footage fall into NOVA’s hands? It is curious that zooming on a photograph would create such a strange anomaly and we would like to hear thoughts about what the anomaly could be.

In the Kepler Crater, mysterious structures are visible that suggest mining activities

The strange thing is that the Russians have noticed this anomaly by declaring that they had seen smoke coming out of the lunar surface during the Apollo 8 orbital journey. But then NASA had denied it. The chimney visible in the NOVA video is more than 300 meters high. The UFO researchers are wondering if this structure is part of an extraterrestrial mining industrial complex located in the Kepler Crater.

Below is the documentary Aliens On The Moon, where from minute 35.02, the images of this mysterious alien structure appear like a real “chimney”.

A Private UFO Enthusiast Donated Thousands of Government UFO Reports to the General Public

A collection of 30,000 documents was donated to the University of Manitoba in Canada by a private UFO enthusiast.

The skies of northern Canada are UFO hotspots, with many mysterious phenomena being reported. Now, alien truth seekers may have a busy winter ahead of them at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, thanks to the recent donation of over 30,000 UFO-related files to the school’s archives, courtesy of Chris Rutkowski.

Rutkowski is a Canadian science writer and prolific ufologist. His collection includes over 20,000 UFO reports documented over the past 30 years and over 10,000 UFO-related files from the Canadian government. Several of these files concern an infamous Falcon Lake incident, a UFO encounter that Rutkowski considers Canada’s best-documented UFO case.

For Rutkowski, the Falcon Lake incident even beats Roswell because the U.S. still does not recognize that anything happened over New Mexico. Meanwhile, the Falcon Lake incident struck both Canadian and U.S. officials as unexplainable and unusual.

The incident happened on May 20, 1967, when amateur geologist Stefan Michalak was looking for quartz near Falcon Lake in Manitoba, a Canadian province that starts over above North Dakota and stretches almost 800 miles into the frigid north. A flock of agitated geese swopping past him startled Michalak. The geese were reportedly fleeing from two glowing, cigar-shaped objects flying in the sky. One of the objects eventually flew off, and the other landed nearby on a rocky terrace.

Michalak’s sketch

Michalak decided to spend some time sketching the strange craft, and those sketches are now part of the University of Manitoba’s collection. After drawing, Michalak came closer to it. He felt the warm air and smelled sulfur and heard the whirrs and hisses of the craft. Michalak then touched the craft, but it was so hot that it burned the tips of his gloves. He seemed to hear voices coming from within.

Michalak looked into the craft through an open door, expecting to see a team of American military pilots. However, he saw little more than a panel of blinking lights before the door closed. The craft then rotated, and a grid-like pattern of small holes in the exterior of the ship sprayed his abdomen with scorching-hot gas.

Michalak’s shirt and hat were on fire because of the attack, which left him with first-degree burns on his stomach that looked similar to the ship’s grid-like pattern. His injuries were treated in a hospital in Winnipeg. They were later rose into welts, and he experienced headaches, blackouts, and diarrhea for a couple of weeks. Michalak reported the incident to both Canadian and U.S. authorities and eventually completed a psychological and physical evaluation at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, which determined him to be of sound mind and not hallucinating.

Years after the incident, a twisted piece of metal was reportedly recovered from the Falcon Lake landing site. The metal was found to be highly radioactive in several tests. Until today, neither the U.S. nor the Canadian military has been able to explain the event.

‘Area 51’ among 2019’s most searched terms

Area 51 generated a great deal of interest this year.

Google has revealed the events, people and things that were searched for the most over the last 12 months.

As the year draws to a close, search giant Google has released a breakdown of its most searched terms – some of which being relatively predictable and others not so much.

Interestingly, the infamous ‘Storm Area 51’ event from back in September managed to attract so much attention that the term ‘Area 51 raid’ made it to 4th place on Google’s news search service.

The search phrase ‘what is Area 51 ?’ also managed to rank #1 for ‘what is’ questions, while the phrase ‘where is Area 51?’ ranked #3 for ‘where is’ questions.

It’s interesting that what started out as something distinctly tongue-in-cheek ended up generating one of the most talked about subjects of the year and thrust the secretive base firmly into the limelight.

Overall, Google’s top 10 general search terms for 2019 were as follows:

  1. Disney Plus
  2. Cameron Boyce
  3. Nipsey Hussle
  4. Hurricane Dorian
  5. Antonio Brown
  6. Luke Perry
  7. Avengers: Endgame
