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 →

USS Nimitz Tic-Tac UFO Incident witnesses, Kevin Day & Gary Voorhis discuss their experiences on the USS Princeton during the Nimitz Incident in 2004 and an update on related matters regarding the case and more, Robert Powell joins us in hour two with his fascinating perspective. Robert’s research on this case began in 2016.
KEVIN DAY is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer. A former Operations Specialist
and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20 years experience in Strike Group air defense
including war-time operations. An expert operator of the highly advanced SPY-1 radar system with years of service onboard AEGIS equipped ships including the USS VINCENNES, USS CHOSIN, and USS PRINCETON. Kevin has
logged hundreds of air-to-air intercepts of suspect aircraft in both training and war-time operations.
It was Kevin’s team in USS PRINCETON’s Combat Information Center that discovered the fleets of
anomalous air contacts, now known as the TIC TAC UFOs, in the sky’s above the Southern California
Operating Area in November 2004.
Because the unidentified air contacts were in too close proximity to the NIMITZ Strike Group while they were conducting at-sea training exercises and represented a potential hazard to safe flight
operations, Kevin recommended investigating the contacts with a pair of F/A 18 Super Hornets
launched from the USS NIMITZ. The NIMITZ Strike Group’s Air Defense Commander concurred and Kevin’s team conducted the now famous intercept. Interestingly, it was to become Kevin’s very last tactical intercept. It was also Kevin’s very last underway in the Navy prior to his retirement.
GARY VOORHIS background in mechanical engineering, and working as an electronic and RF technician. He was a fire control-man and Aegis Computer/ CEC technician in the United States Navy. His responsibilities included the operation, maintenance, and repair of the Aegis weapon systems and non-Aegis senor systems for the purpose of testing and evaluating experimental upgrades to the Aegis baseline 6.1 and Cooperative Engagement Systems or CEC for short.
During his time on the U.S.S. Princeton, he had the task of security and inventory of top-secret and classified information and materials including being trained on the W.A.S.P military recon U.A.V. for the Pacific Fleet during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
On the week of the 14th of November 2004, he was an eyewitness of the U.S.S. Nimitz “tic-tac” events. As a result of this experience, he was interviewed by Chris Mellon for the History Channel Show UNIDENTIFIED: INSIDE AMERICA’S UFO INVESTIGATION

Robert is also a member of the Society for Scientific Exploration, the UFODATA project, and the National Space Society. Robert is active with FOIA requests to various government organizations to obtain information on historical cases and is a co-author of a book published in July 2012: UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry. Robert currently resides in Austin, Texas.
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.”

KENT SENTER was raised in Northern Virginia in Falls Church just outside of Wash DC until his senior year in HS when his family moved to NC. Kent had childhood sightings in Virginia and interesting conversations with high ranking military and government friends who lived in the neighborhood. In the late 50’s and 60’s, it seemed like everyone in the DC area was either military or worked for the government. Later while living in NC, after the Lumberton NC sighting in April 1975 and Durham NC sighting around 1985, he met and became friends with George Fawcett who was a longtime researcher and writer on the subject. The two started the NC Chapter for MUFON in the late 80’s and Kent was a state section director and an investigator until the late 90’s. Kent left MUFON NC due to his job relocation and was out of the UFO news for awhile. After learning he had multiple myeloma cancer in 2009 and given months to live, he decided to start researching the topic again and in 2013, started the Center for UFO Research North Carolina. He hosted an International conference that same year and also hosted a smaller conference in 2016 with Travis Walton, Thom Reed, Nick Redfern and himself as speakers. Kent continues to receive communications about sightings and follow up investigations through his Facebook page. He is part of a small group who meets occasionally to discuss the topic. He currently do speaking engagements and a few radio/podcast shows (Erica Lukes, Tim Beckley, and Brent Raynes) and have been slowly working on a book for the last 3 years about this phenomena.
In 2007, I had a close encounter with a UFO and caught it on video. I immediately posted two videos length 1:15 and 3:23. My account on Myspace.com and youtube was immediately hacked and deleted. I know “something” was going on and it made me very nervous. Within two weeks, FBI showed up at my home on Inez Drive in Booneville, Mississippi. Four agents questioned me about my “online activity. They questioned people on my street which caused fear and uncertainty in my neighborhood and neighbors stopped talking to me. I still have a few screen shots from my video’s which the Feds failed to extract from my home as I was “FRAMED” in a 2013 Presidential assassination plot which my face and identity was published all over the world on news, media, talks shows, radio and internet. Destroying my music career. Before being framed, I was opening for members of the grand ole opry as a singer/songwriter. That ended. Thank you

PS you can read my story in GQ magazine. It made the cover.
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.
