Just the UFO Facts

By Charles Lear

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.”

The Return of the Weirdos

by Charles Lear

by Charles Lear

In the last blog, “AFFA and the Intelligence Community” I mentioned a paper titled, “The UFO Contact Movement From the 1950’s to the Present” written by Christoper (not a typo) Bader, published in Studies in Popular Culture Vol.17 issue 2 1995.  The author looks at the history of alien and UFO encounters as a social phenomenon and shows how the focus of researchers changed as they felt more and more compelled to explain the encounters in physical terms using modern physical science. Particularly interesting is Bader’s summation of the transformations that have occurred in the alien descriptions.

The history of encounters, as Bader presents it, is familiar to most of us.  In the late 1800’s mystery airship reports, the occupants were, almost always, reported to be human and the airships themselves thought to be a human invention.  It wasn’t until the 1940’s that the ET hypothesis became widely considered as an explanation for strange aerial phenomena and the aliens themselves weren’t widely reported until the 1950’s.  At this point Bader focuses on the contactee movement, which is appropriate, given his paper’s title, devoting several paragraphs to George Adamski.  After taking us through the Betty and Barney Hill case, which he uses to represent the 60’s, he describes 70’s encounters with an assortment of strange web-footed, clawed and winged creatures which he argues forced the UFO community to try and reach a consensus as to what an alien should look like.  This brings us to the 80’s abductee research, from which the “Greys” emerged as the acceptable alien form.

Vimāna in the Land of the Nirvana, UFOs Over India


Gurudatt Shenoy

Founder, SecretShare.tk

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

According to a recently declassified CIA document, the intelligence agency tracked multiple cases of UFOs in the 1960s, flying over the Indian sub-continent from Ladakh and Nepal up in the North to Bhutan and Sikkim in the East. Read more

Marc D’Antonio is the chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Marc has been involved with MUFON since 1971 and has a vast amount of experience investigating UFO cases. He is also the owner of FX Models where they work on CGI and physical models for the entertainment industry as well as defense contractors among others. It was in this line of work that Marc began working with motion picture special effects guru Doug Trumbull, who it turns out also has an interest in UFOs. We get an update from Marc on a project he and Trumbull are working on called UFOTOG. This project intends to build units that scan the sky with cameras and other sensors to gather large amounts of data, beside just pictures or video, during UFO sightings. We also talked to Marc about his recent appearances on several UFO related television programs.

The People vs The Government on UFOs

UFOs have such a mystique about them, and it is amazing that sixty years can pass since some part of our government has had at least some knowledge of what these things are. I am talking about the crash at Roswell of course.

One can only speculate how much was learned from that particular incident. They may have learned only that they were not of this world, and tried to reverse engineer what was left of that flying saucer. There is speculation that there has been more than one crash, yet who knows what was left of any of those crashes, if they existed at all.

There is so much we don’t know, but has anyone considered that there is a chance that the part of the government (i.e. CIA/NSA) that knows something, may know very little and not everything? They may know only a tiny part of the whole picture. I do believe that they are concerned overall with national security. How could they not be when there is factual evidence that nuclear warheads have been tampered with during sightings over silos? The consensus is generally that aliens are benevolent, otherwise with their superior and advanced technology; they could wipe us out in a flash. Getting back to missile tampering, to me, it almost seems like some type of message to us. Perhaps a call to eliminate our warheads altogether.
