For UFOlogists, Chile is an exceptional country in that it has a publicly acknowledged government UFO investigation organization. This organization is called the, “Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena” and its Spanish acronym is CEFAA. CEFAA is within the Department of Civil Aeronautics under the jurisdiction of the Chilean Air Force and has an active website where citizens can report UFO sightings. With official recognition of the phenomenon it should be no surprise that the Chilean public is very open minded about the UFO subject. According to researcher, Rodrigo Fuenzalita in the first episode of the short lived series, “Shaun Ryder on UFOs” “There is not a single family in Chile without, at least, one or two members who have experienced a sighting.” The first two episodes of the Ryder series provide a colorful overview and present some of Chile’s most interesting cases. Further investigation reveals that Chile has a remarkable crash retrieval story with an entire town full of witnesses that rivals that of Roswell. Read more →

On the subject of UFOs, there is no shortage of outlandish claims that an answer has been found as to who or what operates what are seen as flying craft and what their agenda is concerning Earth and its inhabitants. There are a lot of people out there who are fine with accepting the speculations of “experts” as truth but some of us like to look at the facts and come up with our own answers or even accept that that we may never have actual answers. For facts, we depend on disciplined and diligent researchers who keep their egos out of the way while writing the story of an event as any good journalist should. A researcher who was a stand out in this respect was Kenny Young who was the person responsible for releasing the amazing 911 dispatch recordings during the 1994 UFO encounters by police officers in Trumbull County, Ohio. Unfortunately, Young died in 2005 at the age of 38 after a long bout with leukemia but he left a legacy to be proud of and made a strong impact of the community of UFO researchers.
Kenny Young was very active as a UFO researcher. From the bio on his website: “Kenny Young, webmaster of ‘UFO RESEARCH: CINCINNATI!’ is a multi-award winning television producer, director and writer and formerly a State Section Director for M.U.F.O.N. and also a former public relations director of Tri-State Advocates for Scientific Knowledge. He is now an independent researcher and has lectured to large audiences about the UFO mystery and served as a host, panelist and debater on several TV programs including ‘UFO Update: LIVE!’ and the award winning documentary ‘UFO REPORT.’” He taught himself how to use the Freedom of information Act and obtained 911 audiotapes in addition to the Trumbull County tape (that was provided without a FOIA request by members of that dispatch unit) and other UFO related government documents. He wrote articles that were published in magazines such as UFO Magazine and Fate, organized and hosted the 39th annual National UFO conference, was a guest on radio shows such as “Coast to Coast A.M. With Art Bell” and “The Jeff Rense Show” and appeared as part of The Sci-Fi channel presentations, “Confirmation” and “Sightings.”

Last week’s blog was about a case involving police officers in Ohio, who sighted and chased a UFO. They later cooperated with investigators by agreeing to be interviewed and provided a police dispatch center tape that had recordings of transmissions made during the event. This week’s blog covers a case so similar, that it’s quite possible to confuse it with the Ohio case but, in some ways, it’s even more extraordinary.
Two states over, in Illinois, a series of sightings by police officers in multiple jurisdictions was started off by a trucker, Melvern Noll. Noll had stopped on the way back from a delivery to check on a business he owned in the city of Highland, which was a miniature golf course with adjoining go-kart track and video arcade. It was around 4:00 am on January 5, 2000 and Noll was concerned about the possibility of frozen pipes. As he exited his vehicle, a light he assumed was a star caught his eye because it seemed to be low. As he returned, he noticed the light was moving towards him and when it got close he saw it was a craft that was “like a two story house with a little penthouse on top” that had six to eight windows. The windows were evenly lit with a white light and there was a circle of “custard-red lights” on the bottom. The object passed slowly in front of him, just above some trees, made no noise and Noll noted that the trees were not swaying. As the object moved away, Noll noted that its rear also had a series of “windows.” Feeling that what he had seen was highly unusual, Noll decided to report it at the local police station in the hopes that someone else would see the object and corroborate his story.
When most people think about UFO sightings and their documentation, it is in visual terms and in the form of photograph, film or video. There are several cases, however, that were documented and archived as audio recordings. Two famous examples are the1965 recordings from Edwards Air Force Base made during an incursion of 12 UFOs and a recording made by Lt Col. Charles Halt as he investigated the 1980 occurrence in Rendlesham Forest. Within recent years, the FAA, despite its history of being uncooperative with researchers, has released numerous recordings between control tower operators and pilots. What’s special about these audio recordings is that they bring you into the event as it unfolds and you get to experience the first hand emotions of the witnesses.
Though all of the above examples are worthy of a thorough, individual recounting, there is an extraordinary tape from 1994 recorded by the Liberty Township 911 dispatch center in Trumbull County, Ohio. The center covered a vast area and was responsible for fielding emergency calls and dispatching emergency and police personnel. On duty the night of December 15, was police officer, Roy Anne Rudolph. Just after midnight, Rudolph received a call from a man who reported a strange object in the sky that was descending at an angle with what looked like flame coming from its rear. Thinking this might be a plane in distress, Rudolph alerted the other officers manning the center that there might be a possible crash emergency. Then three more calls came in from the same area, around a residential road called Sampson drive, including one from a woman describing a large hovering light over her property. This moved the situation away from being a crash incident and they were now dealing with a UFO.
In addition to the calls from concerned citizens, a woman from the local news station called saying she had received a call from a woman describing a large blue/green object hovering approximately 50 feet above the ground while making no noise. Rudolph questions why aliens would want to visit Liberty saying, “there’s no intelligent life in Liberty.” Because there was now media scrutiny hanging over their heads, Rudolph chose to contact a trusted officer and friend, Toby Meloro using her mobile phone and have him check out the reports. As he was headed out to the area of Sampson drive, Rudolph was hopeful that he’d come back with a mundane explanation.
Meloro drove to the area and was stopped in the street by a man who had also seen a large light in the sky and Meloro assured him that he would check on it. Meloro then saw a light himself and reported over the radio that he was observing it and was attempting to get closer to it. As he drove, his car suddenly shut down along with his radio. While attempting to restart the car a huge, red light shone down on him that lit up the area as “bright as daylight” and it seemed to be coming from a structured object that was silent and “as large as a football field.” The object then moved away from him heading south and as it did, his car and radio came back on. He heard his call sign, 998, being called out by Rudolph, who had become concerned after he had failed to respond and he picked up the radio to let her know that he was again operational. He then told Rudolph that he needed a moment to collect his thoughts and this indicated to her that he had experienced something profound. Read more →
