Unidentified Flying Objects – The Reality, The Cover-Up And The Truth

by John Black

Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs as they are commonly known, have been witnessed by millions of people all over the world and have been recorded in history books, myths, legends and traditions for thousands of years. However, many accounts that are recorded in ancient texts are dismissed as mere myths and legends, while UFO sightings that have taken place in the last few centuries have been classified as misinterpretations of natural phenomena, illusions, or conspiracy theories.

History has shown us time and again that a plethora of so-called ‘myths’ have their basis in reality. It is possible, and indeed likely, that stories and legends were a way for people to explain real—and perhaps perplexing—events using the knowledge and beliefs of their time. In support of this theory, a number of events described in mythology, which were once considered mere fairy tales, have now been proven through archaeology to have existed. A famous example is the city Troy, which is central to Homer’s ‘The Iliad’. Long considered to be a city of myth, Heinrich Schliemann’s discovery of the actual site in 1868 elevated it to a place in history. Nevertheless, the remainder of The Iliad is still viewed as a myth and fantasy without any serious attempts being made to investigate whether or not there may be more truth behind the tale. The same goes for many accounts of ‘flying machines’, which we find reference to in countless mythologies from numerous different cultures around the world.

Many cultures contain pictorial and written records of ‘flying machines’, yet these are usually dismissed as myth and legend.

It is common to see people selectively decide what is real and what is not and all of this on the unsubstantiated assumption that ancient people were primitive and had little to no knowledge compared to us today. On the contrary, many ancient civilizations, like the Sumerians, Indus Valley, and Egyptians existed with complex social structures, legal systems, art, astronomy, mathematics, and technology, some of which is still not fully understood today. The Antikythera Mechanism, for example, is a 2,200-year-old mechanical device that is still not completely understood despite decades of research by top scientists around the world.

Ancient Astronaut Theory

The topic of flying objects and supernatural beings from out of our world is one in which we find multiple references in mythologies. All of these myths and legends, along with archaeological evidence such as rock art depictions, have created a wave of theories that gave birth to the ‘Ancient Astronaut’ perspective, which links all of these ancient references and depictions to UFOs, and posits that extra-terrestrials visited Earth and made contact with humans in antiquity and prehistory, influencing the development of human cultures, technologies, and religions.

Unfortunately, there are numerous charlatans who have tried to ‘cash in’ on this movement for profit or publicity, or who have diminished it with caricatures of little green men, resulting in the ancient astronaut perspective being widely criticized and attacked for its lack of credibility. Consequently, what is in fact a plausible and possible explanation for what we see in ancient art and texts, is now rarely examined by scholars, who fear being ridiculed or having their professional career seriously undermined.

UFO sightings in recent history

But let’s leave the ancient past for a while and examine just the last 80 years of human history. Millions of people all over the globe have witnessed unidentified flying objects. Many have been recorded in detailed reports witnessed by police, pilots, astronauts, government officials, pilots, military personnel and, of course, ordinary citizens. Some of the more well-known cases were witnessed by thousands of people at one time. Historical records make it evident that UFO appearances magnified during and after World War II, including the example of the famous ‘Foo Fighters’.

While most sightings can be explained either by celestial phenomena, airplanes, planets, weather phenomena, military exercises, or in some cases drug use or mental instability, there still exists a small percentage that cannot be accounted for by any of these explanations. This is what makes the phenomena important and not to be ignored, particularly considering that sightings are frequently reported around military bases and airfields and are therefore, at the very least, a matter of both national security and air safety.

It is an undeniable fact that there are cases of unidentified objects in our skies. It has been acknowledged by the major governments from all over the world simply through the very fact that official research has been conducted on the matter in the US, UK, Russia, Europe, China, South America, and many others. All of this research, in every single case, concluded that there is a percentage of phenomena that cannot be explained.

In the past decade, many countries have declassified their UFO research files, releasing thousands of documents through the Freedom of Information Act and making numerous UFO cases available in the public domain. One recently released document from the UFO files in Britain, revealed how Churchill, concerned about the UFO issue, ordered a shutdown of information for at least 50 years to prevent mass panic and the potential to undermine religious beliefs. The document in question was also published on the BBC news site in 2010.

By doing careful research on the topic, passing over obvious scam and fake stories, it is clear to see that unidentified flying objects do exist. So the question is not whether they exist or not, but rather, what are they? Are they of terrestrial or extra-terrestrial origin? And what is their purpose?

UFOs and the limits of science

Many prominent scientists have already stated that other civilizations must exist in the Universe, and that it would be statistically impossible for this not to be the case. However, with our knowledge of science and technology today, we cannot yet support the means for interstellar travel, and since we have not discovered intelligent life in our solar system, the assumption is made that there must be no way that extra-terrestrials could have travelled to Earth. However, this argument is of course flawed because it is based within the framework of our own understanding of the universe, and does not take into account the capabilities of civilizations that may be millions of years ahead of our own. It also hinges on the following assumptions:

We know everything about physics and reality and therefore there is no way that such distant travel can be achieved.
We are using our means to try to contact other civilizations (e.g. SETI’s attempts to pick up radio or communication signals) and since we don’t perceive any signals of OUR type, nothing must exist.
We are looking for organic forms of life exactly like us and for planets with the exact same conditions as ours.

It is clear that these arguments show the arrogance of mankind, a mankind that may just be an infant in the Universe. And this is not new. During the history of humanity, in every single period of time, we believed that we knew the truth, only to have it replaced later on by new ‘knowledge’.

There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement, Lord Kelvin, 1901, physicist

Quantum physics, still a relatively new and unexplored field in Science, has shown that reality could be completely different to what we believe it to be. Powerful telescopes have shown distant planets in solar systems that could possibly sustain life. Theories of wormholes and warp drives have shown that at a theoretical level we could achieve interstellar travel. Yes, we would require incredible amounts of energy to even think of trying to achieve something like this, so according to our standards today it is impossible to achieve, but in theory it can be achieved.

“It now seems quite clear that Earth is not the only inhabited planet. There is evidence that the bulk of the stars in the sky have planetary systems. Recent research concerning the origin of life on Earth suggests that the physical and chemical processes leading to the origin of life occur rapidly in the early history of the majority of planets within our Milky Way galaxy–perhaps as many as a million–are inhabited by technical civilizations in advance of our own. Interstellar space flight is far beyond our present technical capabilities, but there seems to be no fundamental physical objections to preclude, from our own vantage point, the possibility of its development by other civilizations.” Carl Sagan, Ph.D. (Late Professor of Astronomy and Space Sciences, Cornell University)

Reluctance to engage with the UFO subject

The reason that the scientific community is not dealing seriously with UFOs is because the topic has been extensively ridiculed both by the media and in academic circles, with false information spread everywhere. For similar reasons, military personnel, astronauts, pilots, and other categories of professionals do not want to talk because, either they have been forced to sign confidentiality agreements, or because of fear that their careers would be destroyed. This is why we have seen many examples of ‘death bed confessions’.

One such case was with astronaut Gordon Cooper, who told the world about his experience encountering a UFO during his flight in the Mercury capsule in 1963. Before he died he stated: “for many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us”.

While great efforts have been made to ridicule and disparage anyone who lends support to the existence of UFOs, the fact remains that there are numerous high-profile cases that are supported by solid evidence, and which should not be dismissed.

Recorded UFO sightings with extensive witness support

Below I present a very limited list constituting strong evidence for the existence of unidentified flying objects in the last 60 years.

November 1942 – LA Incident, known as the Battle of Los Angeles

It all happened in the early hours of February 25 in 1942. An aircraft flew over LA County that sparked an air raid alert (it was in the midst of WWII). Searchlights and guns were locked onto the aircraft for about an hour. The picture below appeared in the LA Times in a story about the Battle of LA It clearly shows a night time defensive response to an air raid. The aircraft was not hostile and obviously was not damaged by the attack. The Government stated that the craft they were shooting at was unidentified.

December 1980 – Rendlesham Forest Incident, Suffolk UK

This incident involved a group of American servicemen stationed at a military base in Suffolk that contained a storage centre with nuclear weapons. There had been three consecutive night of sighting objects in the sky over the base, in some cases shining a light down upon the nuclear weapons storage. On the third night, approximately two dozen servicemen were sent into the forest to investigate one set of mysterious lights. The men reported seeing a spacecraft on the ground in close proximity to them and three extra-terrestrial beings. One serviceman claimed to have touched the craft. The whole incident was filmed and photographed by one of the servicemen, but all photos and videos were removed by the US military. When the British Government released the UFO files, the Rendlesham incident papers were missing – as reported on BBC.

November 1986, Japan Air Lines Flight 1628 over Alaska

In November, 1986, a Japanese crew of a jumbo freighter aircraft witnessed three enormous unidentified objects while flying over Alaska, USA. This sighting gained international attention when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it was going to officially investigate this sighting because the Air Route Traffic Control Center in Anchorage, Alaska, had reported that the UFO had been detected on radar. The UFOs in this case were tracked on both ground and airborne radar, witnessed by experienced airline pilots, and confirmed by a FAA Division Chief.

April 1990 – Belgium UFO wave, Petit Rechain Belgium

The Belgium UFO wave began in November 1989. The events of 29 November would be documented by no less than thirty different groups of witnesses, and three separate groups of police officers. All of the reports related to a large object flying at low altitude. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath. This giant craft did not make a sound as it slowly moved across the landscape of Belgium. The Belgium UFO wave peaked with events on the night of 30/31 March 1990. On that night, unknown objects were tracked on radar, chased by two Belgian Air Force F16s, photographed, and were sighted by an estimated 13,500 people on the ground – 2,600 of whom filed written statements describing in detail what they had seen. Following the incident, the Belgian air force released a report detailing the events of that night.

March 1997 – Phoenix Lights, Arizona, US

The Phoenix Lights (also identified as “Lights over Phoenix”) was a UFO sighting which occurred in Phoenix, Arizona, and Sonora, Mexico on Thursday, March 13, 1997. Lights of varying descriptions were seen by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km), from the Nevada line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. Witnesses claim to have observed a huge square-shaped UFO, containing five spherical lights or possibly light-emitting engines. Fife Symington, the governor at the time, was one witness to this incident; he later called the object “otherworldly.”

October 2004 – Osaka airport, Japan

On the night of August 30, a cluster of multi-colored lights was seen floating in the sky above Osaka. Several people reported to Twitter that they saw a group of lights forming a triangular shape and flashing green, red and white in the night sky above Izumi city in Osaka Prefecture. The sightings caused a commotion on Twitter after one user wrote: “Everyone in Osaka, go outside! There’s a UFO!” prompting others to grab their cameras and snap up photos of mysterious luminous object.

November 2006, O-Hare Airport, USA

At approximately 16:15 CST on Tuesday November 7, 2006, federal authorities at Chicago O’Hare International Airport received a report that a group of twelve airport employees were witnessing a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over Gate C-17.

The object was first spotted by a ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina. The employee apprised Flight 446’s crew of the object above their aircraft. It is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot also witnessed the object.

Several independent witnesses outside of the airport also saw the object. According to the Chicago Tribune’s Jon Hilkevitch, “The disc was visible for approximately two minutes and was seen by close to a dozen United Airlines employees, ranging from pilots to supervisors, who heard chatter on the radio and raced out to view it.”

May 2007, UFO Fleets, Lima, Peru

The incident took place on May 2007 at 14.00 local time in Lima Peru. A series of moving lights resembling an armada of flying objects appeared in the skies. The story was reported on the news and was seen by thousands of people.

July 2010 – Xiaoshan Airport, China

An unidentified flying object that disrupted air traffic in Hangzhou for an hour on Wednesday, 10th of July 2010. A flight crew preparing for descent first detected the object around 8:40 p.m. and notified the air traffic control department. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi. Eighteen flights were affected. A spokesman from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) confirmed to ABC News that the matter is under investigation. He declined to disclose further details. A day after the sighting, however, an anonymous source told China Daily that authorities already discovered the identity of the UFO after an investigation but could not publically disclose the information because “there was a military connection.”

Disclosure

Many would say that the above examples constitute irrefutable proof that extra-terrestrial UFOs exist. So why isn’t the public told about it? Imagine the implications that disclosure would have and what it would mean. Acknowledgment of extra-terrestrial civilizations having visited Earth would mean that many of the myths and legends of the past are in fact based on reality. It would suggests that humanity has been influenced for millennia by other-worldly beings, beings that in the past were considered gods. Disclosure would entirely topple the status quo and the balance of powers in society, and turn upside down what we know about the history of mankind.

The acknowledgement of the UFO phenomena is an event with the power to bring a global revolution in every sector of our lives today – technology and energy supply, communication and environmental concerns, society and religion. Is this what governments and corporations are afraid of – a shift in balance and their loss of their positions of power and control? Or is it that the powers that be are afraid of re-writing our human history?

“When the long awaited solution to the UFO problem comes, I believe that it will prove to be not merely the next small step in the march of science, but a mighty and totally unexpected quantum leap.” Dr J. Allen Hynek, Scientific Advisor to the U.S. Air Force

Why should the search for extraterrestrial life be taken seriously today?

In an unprecedented hunt for alien civilizations, astronomers for first time, survey the entire sky using 28 giant radio telescopes. The project is a collaboration between the SETI Institute and one of the world’s most powerful Very Large Arrey (VLA) radio observatories in New Mexico.

Gaining access to all the data collected by the VLA in real time is an important event for scientists who are hunting for extraterrestrial life forms, as well as a sign that this area has “become mainstream”. Moreover, according to BBC News, the search for alien life forms today should be taken seriously.

What might be the first contact with an alien civilization?

The science fiction novel “Contact” by the prominent astronomer and popularizer of science Karl Sagan is the most plausible description of what our first contact with intelligent life forms might be. In 1997, “Contact” was filmed, and starred Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey. In the film, the heroine Foster, a young radio astronomer, spotted a message from aliens, listening to the sky using VLA. In reality, all astronomical operations will continue on VLA, but the data will be duplicated and pass through a supercomputer that will look for sound signals and other signatures.

As Andrew Siemion, director of the SETI Institute for Berkeley, told The Guardian, VLA is used to view the entire sky. According to Tony Beasley, director of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, which runs the VLA, determining whether we are alone in the universe is one of the most important questions of modern science, and our telescopes can play an important role in finding the answer to it.

At the last conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), SETI researchers introduced the Panoseti prototype, designed to continuously monitor large areas of the sky. If the project receives funding, Panoseti will consist of two geodesic domes covered with half-meter lenses, which will give it the appearance of a giant pair of insect eyes. The ability to simultaneously observe vast areas of the sky would make it a unique device for detecting transient signals, such as the flash of a distant high-power laser. The number of exoplanets detected in the habitable zone is quite large, and this makes the search for an answer to the question of the existence of intelligent life more realistic.

New Mexico Very Large Array Will Collect Data for Subsequent Analysis by SETI

Other researchers are hunting for less intelligent species of alien life. Speaking at the same session at AAAS, Victoria Meadows, head of NASA’s virtual planetary laboratory at the University of Washington, spoke about the observations planned with the James Webb Space Telescope, which will launch next year. Astronomers are now prioritizing the Trappist-1 star system discovered several years ago. According to computer models, the Trappist-1 system is one of the most promising for the search for planets with an atmosphere and temperature that would allow liquid water to exist on the surface.

The search for exoplanets over the past decades has changed everything. We are watching distant worlds, but can someone watch us? The world famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking warned mankind against trying any contact, suggesting that for us such contact would not end in anything good. However, many researchers disagree with this view. In the end, part of a human being is a desire to reach out to the unknown and establish contact with him. So it is possible that sooner or later we will find out the answer to this important question.

Extraterrestrial Life Report Revealed

An international team of astronomers has presented official data on the results of a massive search for space radio signals, which could be evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial life.

The studies were conducted using the largest radio receiver in the world – the observatory in Green Bank (USA). According to EurekAlert, the study was conducted by Breakthrough Listen, based at the University of California at Berkeley. A report on the results was announced at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

A team led by graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania, Sofia Sheikh, used a method called transit photometry. It allows one to detect extremely small deviations in the spectrum of visible light when a cosmic object passes between us and any star. This method is widely used to search for exoplanets. In this case, astronomers analyzed information obtained using Parkes radio telescopes in Australia and Green Bank in the United States. They searched for radio signals from the 20 closest stars in the so-called C-band – these are radio waves with a frequency of four to eight gigahertz.

“There has been a lot of talk about this region before, but there has never been a targeted search in it,” Sofia Sheikh explains.“

If other civilizations had telescopes like ours, they would know that there are planets in the solar system that block the light of the star, and they’d even know that life exists on Earth. That’s how we discovered thousands of other exoplanets, so we can assume that this is how other intelligent species find planets. And if they know that we are here, they can give us a signal.”

However, as follows from the report, the Sheikh and her team have not yet found any technical radio signals that could indicate the existence of an extraterrestrial civilization. Nevertheless, the analysis made it possible to reduce the scope of the search, which will be continued.

“We didn’t find any aliens,” said Andrew Simon, Breakthrough Listen chief researcher, at a media briefing. “

But we must bear in mind that we have set very strict restrictions on the presence of technologically advanced extraterrestrial species in the galaxy – within the radio frequency spectrum of 4-8 gigahertz. the results will allow those who wish to improve the experiment to climb another step. ” We add that in the framework of the project, astronomers directed the telescope to each star for five minutes, and then for the same time took it aside. Then the process was repeated twice more.

As a result, hundreds of radio signals were caught that were initially identified as inexplicable. However, they nevertheless found an explanation. In most cases, these were terrestrial radio interference, and in four cases the “alien” signals turned out to be signals from flying artificial satellites.

According to the study, Breakthrough Listen published almost two petabytes of data. In June last year, a petabyte of data received from radio and optical telescopes was also published. The amount of information is so great that researchers called on the public to look for along with them data on potential signals from intellectually developed civilizations.

Underwater Portal Near Malibu

Six years ago, Maxwell, Dale Romero, and Jimmy Church from the Fade to black program of the American radio station Dark Matter discovered a gigantic underwater portal off the coast of Malibu, California. 

The structure is located under water at a depth of 450 meters, and the lower part of the underwater portal reaches a depth of 700 meters. The portal, respectively, has a height of 250 meters and is located more than ten kilometers from the coast of Malibu. To date, there is no information about the purpose of the structure, who built it or who manages it.

Gigantic underwater portal

The “roof” of the underwater portal has dimensions of 2200 x 4000 meters, while it clearly visible columns indicating the entrance. The distance between the input columns is 836 meters, and their height reaches 192 meters. In this way, the entrance gates provide space for huge vehicles or structures such as the double-sized Eiffel Tower. According to ufologists, the underwater portal may well be the underwater base of UFOs.

True, UFOs seem to be very dubious candidates for such a huge complex. An alternative is the version of the earthly origin of this complex, which can be operated by the US military. An alternative is the China Lake Naval Base, located in the middle of the Mojave Desert in the USA, which can be connected to the underwater portal with a secret underground base and communications. Also known as a possible link is the Naval Underwater Center, located in Hautron, a town on the way from Las Vegas to Reno.

The construction of such an underwater base or underwater portal requires the solution of enormous technical problems. It is possible that the complex, existing for millennia, was accidentally discovered by the American military, and now they use it for their own purposes. This is the only option, because if the United States would build this structure on its own, it would certainly be noticed, because it would require a large amount of technical equipment, and it would be hard not to notice the activity in this place. True, it was suggested that the construction of the facility could be, for example, during the Second World War. But nevertheless, the “version of the construction” of the underwater portal is very doubtful, and there is no evidence for this.

The meaning and purpose of the underwater portal

Suppose an underwater portal is actually operated by the US Army and Navy. But then what is its purpose? The dimensions of the complex suggest a huge base, inside which you can hide vehicles, buildings and much more. And this underwater portal could be connected to both of the bases mentioned above. It has long been rumored that all of the United States are dotted with underground tunnels, and that all military bases are connected in this way to each other.

Unfortunately, there is no real evidence in the public domain of the existence of such tunnel systems and deep underground military bases (DUMB), and therefore everything remains at the level of rumors and hypothetical assumptions. Moreover, the cost of building such tunnel systems would reach trillions of dollars. And trillions, even in the secret budget, are almost impossible to hide. But back to our construction. An underwater base or underwater portal at a depth of 450 meters would keep secret the secret work and groundwork of the US Navy. On such a basis, new technologies could be developed, such as weapon systems, submarines or military technologies unknown to us. Such research projects could be funded from the black budgets of the US defense budget.

The mystery of the mysterious underwater portal near Malibu could be easily solved with the help of a diving expedition, which could carefully examine the complex using an underwater vehicle. But such an underwater expedition requires the permission of the American government, and the question of whether such permission will be granted remains unanswered.

For decades, the US population has been confident that the US government is hiding extraterrestrial technology from the public. After the Roswell incident and the rather clumsy attempts of the US military to explain it, skepticism about confidence in the government among US citizens has intensified, and over time it does not become smaller. 

Particularly strange in recent years, the statement by US President Donald Trump, who stated that he did not believe in aliens and did not have any data about them, could have seemed especially strange. The Americans immediately decided: Lying! Rumor has it that when taking office, each new US president receives a secret book from his predecessor, which should contain all important state secrets. True, so far no US president and senior White House official has deigned to confirm.
