The 1987 Ilkley Moor Alien Photograph

The cold and dreary moorland in England known as Ilkley Moor is a place in which you don’t want to get stuck after the sun goes down. When a freezing chill begins to sink low to the ground and the surrounding darkness is met with an encroaching menacing fog. A place where hazard-friendly trails snake through acres of wet, isolated land and where strange lights have been reported. A place where in the winter of 1987 a former police officer encountered a strange creature standing up ahead on a trial path. Startled by the humanoid being, Philip Spencer managed to snap a single photograph of the creature. What follows is the story of the unsolved mystery of the Ilkley Moor Alien photograph.

 The Sighting

Philip Spencer is a pseudonym for the former police officer who early one December morning decided to hike across the moor to visit his In-laws. Having heard stories of strange lights that have been spotted near the Ilkley Moor, Spencer took with him his camera to capture them on film. He had also taken with him a compass to help him navigate through the early morning fog. 

Coming upon a small hill he noticed something odd moving just up the trail ahead of him. As Spencer looked on, he realized that the mysterious figure looked humanoid. He raised his camera, pointed and clicked.

Just then the being raised its arm, as if waving him away, and then began to move down the trail. Disappearing out of Spencer’s sight. Curious, the former police officer started to make his way up the narrow path in chase of the mystery creature.

Just as he reached was reaching the top of the trail he stopped in his tracks. In the close distance, a large dome topped craft lifted up from the moor and rose out of sight into the morning sky. He did not take a second photograph, Shocked at what he had just seen, Spencer quickly made his way to the nearest village.

Lost Time

About half hour after the sighting, Spencer made it to the village. Along the way he had noticed that his compass was broken. It pointed south instead of north, which was the complete opposite of where Spencer was. Thinking nothing of it, he continued into the village only to stop again when he glanced at his wrist watch. It was an hour behind of what he knew the time should have been.

A whirlwind of worried thoughts swirled through Spencer’s head as he began to question his sanity. What had he seen out in the lonely moorland that morning and what happened to the missing time?

The photograph

When Spencer developed the photograph he was shocked to see that he had captured exactly what he claimed to have encountered out in the moor. A short human-like creature with a bulbous head and long, thin arms.

Spencer contacted Peter Hough, a well known UFO researcher, and told him of his experience that December morning. Immediately upon examining the print, Hough thought of it as intriguing enough to be studied. He sent the photograph to the Kodak laboratories in Hemel, Hempstead for further analysis. Of which the only conclusive result was that whatever the creature or object is, it is definitely in the original photograph. Meaning it was not proven to be a superimposed image.

Hough examined the compass next. He did not find anything out of the ordinary about it so he decided to have the compass checked for radiation at a local University. The results came back negative. As far as everyone was concerned, there was nothing wrong with the compass.

The Nightmares & Hypnosis

Shortly after the sighting, Spencer began to tell Hough about strange “starry dreams” that he was experiencing. Hough, being familiar with abduction cases and missing time, suggested to Spencer that he go under hypnosis. A session was scheduled on March 16th, 1988 with Dr. Jim Singleton and UFO researcher Arthur Tomlinson.

What follows is part of the transcripts and commentary (in parenthesis) from Peter Hough from the session that night:

JS– I want you to cast your mind back to the 1st December last year when you set off across the moor. I want you to clear your mind back to that and I want you to re-experience that. I want you to tell me what you experienced.

Spencer– I’m walking along the moor, oh! its quite windy. There is a lot of clouds. Walking up towards some trees.

I see this little something, can’t tell, but he’s green it’s moving up towards me.

Oh! I’m stuck I can’t move and the creature still coming towards me.
I’m stuck and everything gone fuzzy.
I’m, I’m floating along in the air I want to get down!

I still can’t get down and I don’t like it.
I’m going round this corner and this green thing is in front of me.

Oh God! I want to get down! (long pause) (breathing faster)
There’s a there is a big silver saucer thing there’s a door in it.

And I don’t want to go in there. (worried sound in his voice) (sigh) Everything gone black now. (pause).

JS– you say everything gone black?

Spencer– Mmm! I can’t see anything like I’m asleep, can’t hear anything.

(short pause) There’s a bright light now.
Can’t see where it’s coming from?
I’m in a funny sort of room I can hear this voice saying don’t be afraid.

I don’t feel afraid anymore.
I can still see this green thing but I’m not afraid anymore of it.

I’m being put on a table.
I can move now if I want to, but I don’t feel frightened any more and there’s a beam like a pole it’s above me it’s moving up toward me.

It’s got a light in it like a fluorescent tube. It’s coming up from my feet I can hear that voice again saying “we don’t mean to harm you and don’t be afraid.

” Makes me feel warm as it moves up me it’s coming up over my stomach towards my head.

Close my eyes I don’t want to look at it in case it hurts my eyes.

It’s gone! (pause) there is something my nose feels funny (shows movement of nose) that’s gone as well, I’m standing up now I don’t know how I got stood up?

I can see a door there is one of these green creatures motioning for me to come with him.

Don’t really want to go with him. I’d rather stay here I don’t feel afraid in here (pause).

JS– Can you tell me what’s happening now?

Spencer– I’m walking towards a door there is still a bright light there is light all around want to know where its coming from its just bright all around.

Walking down a corridor there is a window.
Oh! God!(sounds shocked)is that real? (deep sigh) (pause) (sounds afraid) don’t want to be up here want to be down there?

I can hear that voice again saying you’ve got nothing to fear.
Its pretty though didn’t realize it looked so pretty.

(What Jon was looking at through the window was the earth seen from high in space just like the Apollo astronauts saw.
I’ve gone past the window now I’m walking down a corridor. (long pause)

JS– What’s happening now?

Spencer– Come to the end of the corridor.
There’s a hole opened in it so I can walk through. I’m in a big room-a big round room, I’m on a raised platform against the wall.

My camera and compass are trying to get away from me.
Going towards the ball.

It’s difficult to pull them back down again, and this balls moved round with strange its got some blocks on it he says we cant stay in here to long he wants us to go out again the holes closed in the wall its gone strange he says I’ve got nothing to fear but Id still like to go home (pause) its got such big hands.

JS– What’s happening now?

Spencer– Going down a corridor again.
Its very bright still I wish I knew where the light was coming from.

And there is another door, going through a door it’s an empty room two of those green creatures have come with me.

There’s a picture ,it’s starting to move on the wall wonder how they get the pictures?

JS– Can you tell me what’s happening at this point?

Spencer– I’m looking at the pictures on the wall. (long pause)

JS– Pictures on the wall?

Spencer– Mmmm. Creatures seem concerned at the damage that its doing.

Picture changing now there’s another picture, another film he’s asking me a question he says do you understand?

I said yes. It’s time to go.
Everything gone black.
I’m walking up the moor again,
I’m walking near some trees.
Some movement – I can see something.

A green creature. I’ve shouted to it.
It’s turned round. I don’t know what it is.

I’ll photograph it it’s turned around now.
It’s moving quick want to know what it is.

I’m running after it, it’s gone round a corner, I can’t see it now.

There’s … There is a saucer (laughingly), big silver saucer! It’s disappeared? I’m walking on down gone past the trees.

JS– What’s happening now?

Spencer– I’m going home. It’s ten o’clock on the town hall clock.
Can’t really understand it was only eight o’clock.

JS– You mentioned some green creatures. Would you try to describe them to me?

Spencer– It’s quite small.
He’s got big pointed ears, it’s got big eyes.

They’re quite dark, he hasn’t got a nose he’s only got a little mouth.

And his hands are enormous.
And his arms are long.
He’s got funny feet.

JS– Funny feet?

Spencer– They’re like a V shape like two big toes. Must be difficult to walk like that.

He shuffles rather than walks.
I don’t feel afraid of him although he looks odd.

JS– You mentioned big hands? Can you say anymore about the hands?

Spencer– It’s got three big fingers, like sausages. Big sausages.
They’re just very big.
Bigger than my hands.

JS– About how tall would you say these creatures are?

Spencer– It’s about four foot. Comes to the lump on my stomach.
He’s about as high as – just a bit bigger than my stomach is.

JS– Okay. Now I wonder if I can ask you another question? you mentioned a film?

Spencer– There were two films.

JS– Two films?

Spencer– One was lots of scenes of destruction like on the news.
Can see lots of waste going into the river, and people like Ethiopians who are starving.
It’s not very good, it’s not very nice.

JS– Want to say anything more about that film?

Spencer– It’s much of the same thing, only different.

JS– What about the other film then? Do you want to tell me about it?

Spencer– I’m not supposed to.

JS– I’ll leave that up to you entirely, do you want to say anything about that?

Spencer– I’m not supposed to tell anyone about the other film, it’s not for them to know.

JS– Is there any thing more?

Spencer– No.

 

Real or Hoax?

We’re left with the assumption that what Mr. Spencer experienced in 1987 was a typical case of abduction. The missing time, magnetic disturbances and reoccurring nightmares all seem to be indicative of that. Combined with Mr. Spencer’s eerie account and his claim of photographic evidence of what he saw that day, it’s a perfect recipe for an alien abduction case.

However just because a laboratory from Kodak determines that the original photograph does not show signs of superimposing or any other photo manipulation it does not mean that it’s proof positive of the existence of alien creatures on our planet. For all we know Mr. Spencer might have been a crafty man with a lot of spare time, hoping to pull one over on the world.

Cases of Interest: Shapeshifting UFOs

by Roger Marsh

​UFO encounters may be frightening as witnesses observe never-before-seen objects moving in incredible ways. But some sightings are further stressed when the object morphs into different shapes.

Four shape-shifting UFO sightings were listed in the recently-released book, UFO Cases of Interest: 2018 Edition, by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

A New Mexico witness at Albuquerque reported watching a boomerang-shaped object just 500 feet away that hovered and seemed to change shape while moving, according to testimony in Case 82456.

The witness was outside walking north on a lunch break at 12:30 p.m. on March 2, 2017.

“A light gray shape caught my eye,” the witness stated. “The object was approximately 500 feet away, and about 50 feet in the air over a building. At first, I thought it was a flock of birds, and I said, ‘That’s interesting. What kind of birds would those be?’ It seemed to be moving east in a slow flutter. Then it disappeared, like it folded back into the sky.”

The witness thought that was strange.

“It then reappeared in a fat boomerang shape. It seemed to be made up of multiple light gray, possibly reflective objects, but working together, like a school of fish, or sequins on a purse or dress. It did seem to have a common background that was dark gray or black. It was still fluttering, but it paused and hovered and moved backward, just slightly.”

At this point, a bare tree blocked the view, but the witness kept walking to see the object again.

“When I saw the shape again, it had changed. And it seemed to be a soft, billowy, upside down parachute shape, or the bottom of a puffy cloud or a puff of factory smoke. I almost convinced myself it was a deflated weather balloon, but there was no top to the shape, only a distinct bottom. The color of this object seemed to blend with the sky. I could only decipher a dark gray sitting in the bottom of the cloud/parachute.”

Then the object changed again.

“Now it became almost transparent, as if the sun were reflecting on an invisible craft. Now there really is no overall shape that I can make out. I saw a few smaller, very rigid shapes, like flat prisms or solar panels, and they seemed to fold backwards into the object and then the whole object faded away.”

The witness said these events occurred in about 20 – 25 seconds.

An Idaho witness at Idaho Falls reported UFO sightings over a period of time, including a “huge, camouflaged triangle,” according to testimony in Case 88223.

One of those sightings occurred on June 8, 2017.

“I’ve seen quite a few UFOs and think I’ve been possible visited,” the witness stated. “A saucer, a huge, camouflaged triangle, a huge white orb covered the moon and moved across the sky, an orange orb in my backyard and more. All in Idaho Falls area. People just don’t look up.”

Idaho MUFON Field Investigator Scott Thunstrom closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.

“Witness reports seeing a massive triangular craft while camping near a lake,” Thunstrom wrote in his report. “Triangle shape, changed direction, changed shape, cast light, hovered, affected cell phone, appeared solid, glowed, reflective, glowing, mist/shroud, larger than aspirin in apparent size, white surface lights, pink/rose exterior lights, red-orange, yellow-orange, and blue surface lights, pulsating lights, no sound, 20 feet or less from witness, lowest altitude at over 500 feet, flight path stationary, unknown direction first and last observed.”

A Fort Rucker pilot reported watching an “oddly-shaped, circular object” hovering over the Alabama army base, according to testimony from Case 84970.

The witness had just finished morning PT (Physical Training) and was standing around talking to two other friends before heading home at 6:45 a.m. on June 15, 2017.

“It was a warm morning with partly cloudy skies,” the witness stated. “The sun was just starting to peak over the buildings around us and was quickly starting to warm the day. At approximately 6:45 am, I observed a UH-60 (Blackhawk) helicopter flying above the tree line approximately a mile from my current location. This is a pretty typical sight as Fort Rucker is home to initial Army flight training.”
As the witness looked up to watch the Blackhawk helicopter, another object was noticed hovering approximately a thousand feet or so above the tree line.

“From my line of sight, the Blackhawk was passing under the object but was much closer to me then the object appeared to be. From where I was standing the object was rather small but taking into consideration the altitude and distance from my location, it had to have been no smaller than the size of an average car. The object omitted a light similar to a star but was not as bright. You could also tell that the object’s color was most likely white or a dull-like color. We knew this was no star because it was below the clouds and appeared to be much closer. The longer we watched it, the less it seemed to have a definitive shape. It appeared to be shifting shapes kind of like a ball of liquid would behave. Almost like a pulsating type behavior.”

None of the three observers could identify the object.

A Missouri witness at Gladstone reported watching a shapeshifting, black craft moving along at the three top level, according to testimony in Case 85100.

The witness and her son were driving southbound along the 6500 block of N. Flora at 9:02 p.m. on July 14, 2017.

“I saw bright lights just under the low-lying clouds as a storm was blowing in,” the witness stated. “They caught my attention as they looked quite low to the ground. I observed two amber lights on each side with a brighter, larger white light in the middle. As we moved forward, my view was obstructed by trees, so I sped up slightly to better my view. The lights had disappeared, but as I scanned the sky looking for them, I noticed a large black object moving slowly directly in front and above my vehicle.”

The witness shouted to her son and pointed in the direction of the object.

“We witnessed the object as it crossed above the road, heading northwest, at the closest point to us being about 20 feet above. We pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school and watched the craft fold in on itself, changing from a black, sphere-like object, to a squared shape, then into a large, disc-shaped craft. It ascended above the tree tops and took up into the clouds. We continued to watch as many as 20-plus sparkling, amber colored lights appear through the clouds exactly where the craft had disappeared. We watched in awe until all the smaller, twinkling lights disappeared.”

UFO, spy plane or drone? Triangular object flying above Texas claimed to be USAF spy craft

Sputnik

Despite the aircraft believed to be fulfilling surveillance missions outside the US, this time it has apparently been spotted while spying inside the country, according to claims by exceptionally inquisitive internet users.

Weird footage has emerged featuring the moment a man inadvertently caught on camera something he could not effectively explain. As he stopped his car at a red light glancing right into the blazing sunrise while on his way to work, he caught sight of something unusual in the skies above El Paso, Texas, and quickly reached for his phone to film it.

He later checked out the footage just to realize that it was something inexplicable in the video, namely some glowing triangular object off in the distance. The video racked up thousands of likes after the source, who spoke to The Daily Star on the condition of anonymity, posted it online.

“Looks to me like a TR-3B craft with the circles under each corner of the triangle if that makes sense,” one viewer claimed, with many others rushing to support this point of view. Another commentator even recalled helping develop those “at a top secret base back in the 1960s.”

“I clearly remember working tirelessly round the clock to fix all the glitches,” he wrote.

The supersonic TR-3 Black Manta, which is a covertly designed US Air Force spy plane, is said to be of a triangular shape and is well-known for being used in espionage missions well beyond the borders of the US. Most recently, there were reports of the TR-3 being spotted over Russia and Australia. It is believed to have been used by the US-led coalition during the first, Iraqi war, or the Gulf War in 1991, to determine targets for Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk bombers.

‘We Don’t Have To Go Anywhere To Find Them, They’re Already Here’

  • The Facts: Robert Bigelow, founder of the Bigelow Aerospace Corporation lets the world know that he has knowledge that we are not alone, and that we are currently being visited by intelligent extraterrestrials.
  • Reflect On: Bigelow is just one person, but he is joined by hundreds of others with impressive credentials. These people have been telling the world that we are not alone for years, in a very serious manner. Why do you think this is considered a ‘conspiracy?’

“We have, indeed, been contacted – perhaps even visited – by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.” – Victor Marchetti, former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May 1979)

If you’re paying attention to what’s happening in the world, it’s OK if you feel like Alice in Wonderland. For years humanity has become comfortable with their enslavement, prior to today, a large portion of the population was content with the human experience, simply entering into the system, trying to put food on the table and chase higher ‘material’ status, among other things, without ever questioning what is really happening. All of us have been engulfed in our own lives when the world is calling for us to be concerned about others.

Today, it’s a different story. There’s a massive shift in consciousness that’s occurring, and part of that shift is questioning the human experience and the systems we’ve chosen to surround ourselves with. Revelations are now coming forth in all areas that surround every aspect of human life; health and finance, to education, politics, entertainment etc… It’s quite clear that our world is not what we’ve all been presented with, and that there are aspects of reality that we should really start paying attention to if we want to grow, move forward, and break out of the cycle we currently find ourselves in. We can’t change our world if we continue to do the same things over and over again without questioning what’s happening, and why it’s happening. There are people in all fields coming forth to ‘blow the whistle,’ and witness testimony is backed up by credible evidence, which gives these whistle-blowers confidence to come forward and say what they say. Edward Snowden is one of many great examples, prior to him, mass surveillance was considered another ‘conspiracy theory.’

One big revelation hitting the mainstream right now is the fact that we are not alone, and that intelligent extraterrestrial life-forms have been visiting our planet for a long time, and still do. As unbelievable as this may sound, it comes from the highest ranking military personnel, academicians, intelligence agents, politicians, and private contractors from within the military industrial complex. There are hundreds of these people who keep telling the world that we are being visited and that governments around the world have had evidence that some of these ‘UFOs’ are indeed extraterrestrial.

“Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.”
– Dr. John E. Mack, a Harvard University psychologist and Pulitzer prize winner (source)

The Credibility of These Sources

The sources are the most credible in the world, the only issue is, the topic. No matter how much evidence for a given phenomenon, and no matter how obvious its reality, if it goes against the human mind and what we are willing to accept, it is usually ignored or greeted with ridicule. We see the same thing with science, which has largely become dogma, the downright denial of parapsychology (telepathy, healing at a distance, etc) when it has more statistically significant results than the science used to approve most of our drugs (source). It’s called cognitive dissonance… We believe what we choose to believe, and humanity is currently in the process of shedding some belief systems in order to accept new realities that once did not fit the frame, and thus were ignored and ridiculed.

One of the latest ‘whistle-blowers’ to speak openly about their knowledge about extraterrestrial visitation is Robert Bigelow, founder of the Bigelow Aerospace Corporation. Bigelow has done work for multiple international space agencies and is currently in agreements with multiple nations to build space habitats and space stations.

Before we get to his comments, it’s important to let the reader know what type of circles Bigelow is currently ‘in’ with regards to space and the extraterrestrial/UFO question in general. Bigelow’s comments were made approximately a year ago now, but not a lot of information was given as to the type of connections this person has, if it isn’t already obvious as being one of the leading aerospace contractors in the world…

Towards the end of last year, an article titled “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O Program” put to rest the question of whether or not UFOs are real. CEO Tom Delonge, along with several other people, including a recently retired director of Lockheed Aerospace, Steve Justice, a Department of Defense Scientist, Hal Puthoff, a senior intelligence officer from the CIA, Jim Semivan, a Director of National Intelligence, Louis Elizondo, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and Bush Administrations, Christopher Mellon, and many more are all releasing official video footage and electro-optical data (radar trackings, returns) and letting the world know that these things (UFOs) are real.


I go into more detail regarding the latest updates in an article I published previously:

The US Government Just Admitted To Recovering Materials From UFOs – Here Are The Latest Updates


Multiple people from within this new initiative have expressed that they believe there is an extraterrestrial intelligence behind the operation of some of this craft.

This movement brought to light the Pentagon’s UFO program (AATIP) for aerial threats, one program out of what could be many, according to Hal Puthoff. You can view the entire team and their credentials here.

The main hub for all of this recent and future ‘official mainstream’ UFO disclosure is the To The Stars Academy, it’s the organization that’s releasing all of this information.

Where does Bigelow come in? Well, as the New York Times article points out:

The shadowy program – parts of it remain classified – began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time and who has long had an interest in space phenomena. Most of the money went to an aerospace research company run by a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid’s, Robert Bigelow, who is currently working with NASA to produce expandable craft for humans to use in space.

Bigelow is part of the team at To The Stars Academy, and here’s what he had to say about extraterrestrials,

“I am absolutely convinced, that’s all there is to it. There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.”

He also stated that we “don’t have to go anywhere” to find extraterrestrial life, that we can find it here on Earth, implying that they’re already here, walking among us, and based on my research, are already working with multiple governments.

How many races are we talking about? Perhaps hundreds, maybe even thousands of races have been catalogued by our governments worldwide.

For decades, as General Carlos Cavero told the world in 1979, “everything has been in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” On a global scale, “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” (Via Richard Donal’s UFOs for the 21st Century Mind)

A couple of years ago, longtime Bigelow Aerospace executive Mike Gold, who’s now director of Washington operations for Space Systems Loral, was asked about how Bigelow Aerospace’s’ involvement with UFOs.

He gave an intriguing answer, with some interesting expressions on his face. He mentions how he finds the subjects matter “very interesting,” and also mentions a congressional hearing where scientists emphasized that the universe is teeming with life. He goes on to state that he “cannot comment” on what Bigelow Aerospace does with UFO reports, but glad that “somebody is taking the reports because these are important issues that deserves serious attention.”  (source)

Clearly, we now know that this is the case!

“An extraterrestrial influence is investigating our planet. Something is monitoring the planet and they are monitoring it very cautiously.” —  2008 Presidential Candidate, Mike Gravel (source)(source)

We interviewed Franco DeNicola about what is happening with the shift in consciousness. It turned out to be one of the deepest and most important information we pulled out within an interview.

We explored why things are moving a little more slowly with the shift at times, what is stopping certain solutions from coming forward and the important role we all play.
