2017 UFO Sightings Reported in the United States

by Martin Willis

Reported UFO sightings in 2017 were up 6% for MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) at a total of: 5,630.

They were down 5.8% for NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Center) at a total of: 4,665.

It is interesting, but most likely coincidental that reportings are up the same percentage that are down between the two reporting centers.

Keep in mind, only a small percentage of the reportings remain unidentifiable. Most object have an earthly or astronomical explanation, however some remain a mystery yet to be solved.  Also note that some of these reports may reflect sightings of an earlier date prior to 2017, but were finally reported in 2017.

NY Times Article: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program. Is this a New Paradigm Shift?

by Martin Willis

Since I started this show in 2011, never have I seen anything like what happened over the weekend! Jokingly, I told Alejandro Rojas that ‘my email was ringing off the hook’. Past guests, both Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal along with New York Times Pentagon Correspondent, Helen Cooper took one small step, that was a giant leap in how people look at the topic of UFOs.

A few days in, and now all of mainstream media has taken the plunge, the people who never even thought about the topic are suddenly talking about it.

I commend all the people involved as well as the NY Times for having the courage to publish the what will be a snowball effect of interest.

For this week’s show, I am reaching out to the authors, and so far have heard back from Helen Cooper who declined by stating that she is ‘too tapped out’.

A sleepy fishing village awakened by a strange incident

Fishermen and women are not someone you would want to mess with, especially Aliens from another planet or dimension. But when a strange craft fell out of the night sky towards Shag Harbour on the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada on the 4th of October 1967, the place got immortalized in the annals of UFO History

When a massive UFO buzzed an Airline over Alaska

Over 30 years ago on the 17th of November, Japan Air Lines flight 1628 was on a routine flight from France to Japan overflying Alaska; when it encountered a massive object in plain sight of the cargo aircraft’s Pilot and crew.

This event now famously called the JAL 1628 incident changed the paradigm about UFO encounters. Not that there were no previous encounters between airlines and UFO’s; yet this incident was reported by the Pilot to the FAA and the event got etched in UFO history as one of the most credible sightings.

Besides the Pilot reporting the UFO encounter, the Air Route Traffic Control Center in Anchorage, Alaska, also acknowledged sighting of the UFO on its radars. Read more

UFOs under the Astronomer’s Lens

The most famous of Astronomers, Dr. Carl Sagan had this to say about UFO’s – “I’m delighted to tell about contemporary scientific thinking along these lines, but let me begin by saying that I do not think the evidence is at all persuasive, that UFO’s are of intelligent extraterrestrial origin, nor do I think the evidence is convincing that no UFO’s are of intelligent extraterrestrial origin.”

However, most astronomers have treated the subject of UFOs with skepticism and among many one such astronomer was Alan Hale (the astronomer who co-discovered Comet Hale-Bopp). He claimed that he has thus far not seen anything significantly that can be described as a UFO as compared to many other objects in the skies above earth.

Vimāna in the Land of the Nirvana, UFOs Over India

Though UFOs are a big deal today in the US and elsewhere, it seems in ancient times thousands of years back, South Asia was a hot bed of UFO activity.

According to Dr.V. Raghavan, who was once headed the department studying the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit at a prestigious Indian University, claims that India was visited by Aliens from outer space. This was his conclusion after studying these ancient literatures for more than 50 years.

According to the Indian scholar, there are too many accounts of flying machines called “Vimāna”, sci-fi weapons and weapons of mass destruction in the ancient Indian texts called the Vedas dated more than 4,000 B.C; from diverse sources.

Additionally there is literature that describes how these machines were built and how some of them could only fly in the atmosphere and others could engage in inter stellar travel.

The “Ramayana” which is considered as the “Bible for most Indians”, describes the flying car called the “Pushpaka Vimāna” that could fly through mind control.

Another ancient epic, the “Mahabharata” describes similar flying chariots and vehicles that are described as resembling what one would infer as “Missiles” flying around, as armies’ battle in this ancient war.

More recently, archeologists from the Indian state of Chhattisgarh have discovered some cave paintings that are dated more than 10,000 years back which remarkably show men in space suits.

UFOs visited India more recently

UFO Flaps into the Modern Age

The modern age documented sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) started during World War II, when fighter pilots from both the Allied and the Axis powers reported fireballs as large as 300 feet and as small as 1 feet in diameter that slowed down, accelerated and circled around them.

And since then, there have been a flurry of sightings of unexplained flying objects reported across the world.

However some of the years have experienced  more incidents than other years and thus such years of heightened UFO activity are being referred to as UFO flaps.

We shall look closely at the events and the period to understand more about UFO Flaps as also to learn what lies beneath. Read more
