Organizers of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure say they have
added two more former congress members to their committee, making it five
former congress members who will “investigate extraterrestrial phenomena.”
The event will be a mock congressional hearing held at the National Press
Club in Washington D.C. from April 29 to May 3, 2013.
The two additions are Darlene Hooley, who served in the U.S.
House of Representatives for the 5th congressional district of Oregon from
1997 to 2009, and Lynn Woolsey, who served as the U.S. Representative for
California’s 6th congressional district from 1993 to 2013.
Although the former congress members will be listening to
testimony from 40 researchers, activists and military/agency/political
witnesses, they will not be required to share their thoughts on what they
hear. Their investigation will end at listening to the testimony, and after
comments made this week by one of the former congressmen, it may be no
surprise they will not be asked their opinions at the completion of the
An alleged UFO sighting roused Washington area motorists into
a frenzy Wednesday night after numerous drivers reported seeing a
saucer-shaped aircraft on the Beltway and I-270 in Maryland.
The reports began appearing on
Twitter late Wednesday night, with users
speculating that the apparent unidentified flying object, which was being
towed behind a tractor trailer, was a sign that “aliens
But, as it turned out, the alleged extraterrestrial vessel
was just a large military plane.
According to Maryland State Police, the plane — which
reportedly measures about 82 feet long, 32 feet wide and 14 feet high — was
being transported to the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in southern
(CBS News) It wasn't flying, and it's already been identified.
But that didn't stop people around Washington, D.C. from buzzing about a
possible UFO being towed on the local highway Wednesday night. Many took to
Facebook and Twitter to share their amazement of an extraterrestrial craft on
the back of a tractor-trailer. Maryland authorities confirmed today that the UFO
was actually a military drone.
The aircraft was a Northrop Grumman X-47B, to be exact. The
drone was en route to the Patuxent Naval Air Station in southern Maryland.
Drivers noticed the unusual craft on I-270 and on the Beltway around D.C.
I. Dr. Herbert Hopkin's Experience with a
Man in Black
September 11, 1976. Time: 8:00 p.m. Saturday. This was the first time I had
been alone in the house for an extended period of time. My wife and children had
gone to an outdoor movie, which I dislike.
'The telephone rang and I answered it. A man's
voice identified himself as the vice president of the New Jersey UFO Research
Organization, and he told me he would like to talk to me about the David
Stephens case. He asked if I was entirely alone and if it would be convenient
for me to see him. I told him to come right up and I would talk to him. I did
not even ask his name, which is very uncharacteristic of me, and also I never
see anyone alone since my home and office have been broken into twice and since
there is a great deal of illicit drug activity in this town at the present
time--even the murder of a pharmacist.
'Immediately I went to the back door to turn
on the light so that he could see his way in from my parking lot. Just as I
turned on the light, I saw this man dressed in black coming up the porch
stairs. I saw no car, and even if he did have a car, he could not have possibly
gotten to my house that quickly from any phone. Strangely, at the time I
did not think of this but opened the door for him without even asking who he
was. I do not do things this way ordinarily. He did not introduce himself, but
simply came in. He was about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed perhaps about 140
pounds. He wore a black derby, a black jacket, black tie, white shirt, black
trousers and shoes. I thought, "He looks like an undertaker." I was struck
immediately by his immaculate attire. His suit had not a wrinkle and fitted him
like a clothing store dummy. It didn't fill out his legs and arms. The crease
in his pants was perfect and razor sharp. The suit looked as if he had just put
it on. Everything about him seemed to be super-perfect. He asked if he might
sit down and I said "Yes." As he sat down, the crease in his trousers even at
the knees did not flatten but stood out.
'He removed his hat and I saw that he was
completely hairless and had no eyebrows or eyelashes. He had a smooth face with
no hair follicles. He had a small nose set low, and small ears, set low. His
head and face were of a dead-white color and his lips were a vivid red in stark
contrast to his white face. His eyes were not remarkable --couldn't tell the
color, I must have been 12 feet away from him. I remained calm and unafraid as
I appraised him. I wonder why? As he asked me about the Stephens case, I noted
that he spoke in an expressionless, monotone, scanning speech. His voice--he
spoke English, flawless, with no accent, but no sentences, no phrases, just a
series of words. His voice was completely neutral and passive.
'After I told him about the Stephens case, he
said, "That's just what I thought." As I was telling him about the case, he
idly put the backs of the fingers of one hand against his lips (he wore gray
suede gloves), I noticed that the bright red of his lips had become smeared and
the backs of his gloved fingers were stained red! This character was wearing
'I thought, "This is some kind of a queer."
His mouth was a perfectly straight slit, which he hardly opened. I didn't see
any teeth. His head seemed to blend into his collar. He had a receding chin,
and he did not move his head at any time; he didn't turn his head, nod, or
anything. His head was perfectly stationary with the upper part of his body.
As a matter of fact, I'd say with his entire body, except his legs.
'He then told me that I had two coins in my
left pocket, which was true, a dime and a penny. He told me to take one of the
coins and hold it out in the palm of my open hand. I took the penny because it
was the larger of the two coins. Perhaps a 25-cent piece would have been
better. I placed the shiny new penny on the palm of my extended hand and looked
towards the strange man. He said, "Don't look at me, look at the coin." I did,
and the shiny new penny was now a bright silver color. He told me to keep
looking at the coin; as I did so the coin slowly became light blue in color, and
then it began to become blurred to my vision. My hand was in sharp focus, but
try as I might I could not seem to focus on the silver-blue penny. It became
more blurred, became round like a little blue fuzzy ball, and then became
vaporous and gradually faded away. All the time this was going on I felt and
heard nothing. I looked at him and said, "That was a neat trick." I felt eerie
at this and asked him to make the coin return. He said, "Neither you nor anyone
else on this plane (not planet) will ever see that coin again."
'He then asked me if I knew why Barney Hill
died, and I told him that I assumed it was the result of a long illness. He
told me that this was not the case, that Barney Hill died because he knew too
much. He then asked me if I knew how Barney Hill had died, and I told him I
understood that he died of a heart attack (wrong information, I was to find out
later). He then told me that this was not correct, that he had died because he
had no heart, just as I no longer have a coin. This frightened me. He then
told me that I had tape recordings of the Stephens case and also correspondence
relating to this case. I said that this was true. He then ordered me to
destroy the tapes and any other correspondence and literature I might have
pertaining to UFOs in any way, or I would suffer the same fate as Barney Hill.
He said he would know when I had done this, but did not say that he would come
'As he spoke his last words, I noticed that
his speech was slowing down. Slowly, and a bit unsteadily, he got to his feet
and said, very slowly, "My energy is running low--must go n o w--g o o d-b y
e." He walked in four steps to the door and I opened it for him. He clung
tightly to the railing as he went down the steps, one foot at a time--one foot
down, then the other next to it, before taking the next step--not one foot after
another. I watched him as he very unsteadily and slowly walked to the corner of
the building and the driveway. He was so unsteady I thought he might fall. I
saw a very bright light shining up the the driveway and thought that it must be
coming from his car--but there was no light there when he arrived. The light
was definitely brighter than automobile headlights and was bluish-white in
color. I immediately rushed to the nearby kitchen window and looked out to
watch him, but I didn't see or hear anything and the light was gone. I rushed
out to the front porch but saw no car leaving.
'He walked in a different direction from the
driveway--80 degrees opposed to the direction that he came in. I can't remember
seeing his shadow. And walking out that way there is no way we could get out
because the house is on one side of the driveway and the hedge on the other.
The hedge is dense and he'd have a hard time getting through it, especially in
his weakened condition. When he didn't appear there, I went out the front door
on to the front porch and stood there looking for some time, watching the
driveway, waiting for him to come out, but he didn't appear, and no car left the
driveway. Two or three cars passed by on the street in the meantime, and I
didn't think to look up.
I was much shaken and left all the lights on.
The interview took only a matter of minutes. Oh, I don't know--twenty minutes.
At no time was there any odor. When the man came to my house, the dog (half
shepherd and half collie) barked, then put his tail between his legs, and hid in
the closet (unusual behavior). A mother cat and four newborn kittens and a
Persian cat were apparently not affected.
'When my two sons and wife returned from the
drive-in movie, about one and one-half hours later, I told them of this
experience. My oldest boy suggested we examine the driveway for marks and he
got a flashlight. We went out and found in the very middle of the driveway a
series of marks that looked like a small caterpillar tractor tread. The marks
were about four inches wide and continued for only about a foot and a half.
There was nothing except this single set of marks. No automobile could have
possibly made them because the driveway is too narrow for a car to get over far
enough so that its wheels would be in the middle of the driveway. Also, they
were too deep and distinct to have been made by a motorcycle, and, also, they
did not continue for any length greater than that mentioned above. The marks
were gone the next day (no one had used the driveway in the meantime).
'We went back inside and my family urged me to
do as the man said. I erased the four tapes and then physically destroyed them
in the fireplace. I burned some articles on UFOs and believe I had cleaned out
everything. I called Shirley Fickett and asked her to contact the National
Enquirer and tell them not to publish anything (on the Stephens case). Oh,
how I hated to destroy those tapes. They weren't hurting anyone, but I wanted
to be safe and I was really terrified at this point. I slept well that night,
but a week later I had recurring nightmares in which I would see this creature's
face getting bigger and closer. The nightmares stopped after a week and have not
returned. We have had a lot of trouble since with the telephone being cut off,
clicks followed by background sounds indicating that there was an open line to
another telephone somewhere, but never any voices. Also, people kept breaking in
on phone calls. At the present time, however, the phone has not been disturbed
any more. I hope this is the end!'
The phone rang, and a man's voice identified himself as a
representative of a New Jersey UFO organization (which turned out to be phony).
"He wanted to know if he could come here and talk to me about
the UFO case. He also asked if I was alone, and I said yes," Hopkins told this
reporter in 1978 for a story broadcast on NBC Radio.
When Hopkins walked from the phone to the door and turned on
the light, the man was already coming up the steps.
"If he was even as close as across the street or next door
telephoning, he could not possibly have gotten here as soon as I did to turn on
the light for him," recalled Hopkins.
When the stranger came in, Hopkins was struck by his
"He wore a neatly tailored black suit, black shoes, black
socks, a white shirt with black tie, and he wore a black derby. You don't see
derbies very often, and I thought to myself, 'This guy looks just like an
undertaker.' When he sat down, he removed his derby.
"This character was as bald as an egg. He didn't even have
eyebrows or eyelashes. It looked like he had smooth, plastic skin -- like a doll
except that it was a dead-white color," Hopkins said.
"His lips were a brilliant ruby red, and he spoke in an
expressionless, monotone, scanning speech. He constructed no phrases and
sentences -- just a sequence of words evenly spaced. His voice was completely
passive with no inflection or intonation, as if you were hearing it from a
machine that could talk."
During the short time they were together, Hopkins and the
strange man talked about the UFO case that the doctor had been investigating.
Hopkins also noticed other very odd things about this Man in Black.
"He sat perfectly motionless and wore grey suede gloves. He
idly brushed his lips with the back of a glove, and when he put his hand down,
the back of his glove was bright red and the red on his mouth was smeared, so I
knew he was wearing lipstick.
"Then I could see that his mouth was a perfectly straight
slit. Apparently, he did not have what we call lips, so the lipstick was put on
as a decoy -- his mouth was more like a ventriloquist's dummy."
STRANGE SOUNDS ARE BEING REPORTED AROUND THE
WORLD. THE SOUNDS STARTED LAST SUMMER. SOME ARE NO DOUBT HOAXES.
BUT MANY, PERHAPS MOST, SEEM TO BE REAL. THERE IS NO EXPLANATION.
Is This UFO Caught By Multiple Cameras a Real Alien
I'm always skeptical about little green men and their
flying machines. There's always one nutter/hoaxer claiming to have captured an
UFO on a blurry film. This time, however, it's hard to dismiss because multiple
people caught it at the same time. Updated.
The video above shows three videos taken from three different
angles by three different people—including one woman from
Mississippi—synchronized into one. Here's the first video, showing a bright dot
descending and hovering over Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock, one of the holiest
spots in the world, at the heart of the Jewish-Muslim conflict in Israel:
Paging Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, we need you at the Baltic
Sea as soon as possible. In what sounds like an opening for the next X-Files
movie, an ocean salvage exploration company found an object on the floor of the
Baltic Sea that looks an awful lot like a UFO.
The sonar images are vague at best, but the object still bears
an uncanny resemblance to the outline of the Millennium Falcon. Has George Lucas
been spotted anywhere in the vicinity?
The images come courtesy of the
Ocean Explorer team, an
experienced group of Swedish salvagers that already raised an impressive
collection of rare and very expensive champagne from the watery depths.
Expedition leader Peter Lindberg notes that the mystery object
is 60 meters across. Lines in the ocean floor next to it almost look like a
skidded landing area.
Healings: True Accounts of People Healed by Extraterrestrials
Preston Dennett's book on ET Healings was the first book to
ever examine accounts of physiological improvements resulting from an UFO
encounter. While researching for his book, Preston studied 110 cases of people
who were cured of illnesses and diseases by a UFO, ranging from the common cold
to cancer. The cases in question were investigated and verified by UFO
investigators, doctors and other officials. In this presentation, Preston will
give us an overview of his most dramatic and interesting ET healing cases.
Preston Dennett began investigating UFOs and the paranormal in
1986, after discovering that his family, friends and co-workers were having
dramatic unexplained encounters. Since then, he has interviewed hundreds of
witnesses and investigated a wide variety of paranormal phenomena. He is a field
investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a ghost hunter, a paranormal
researcher, an out-of-body explorer and the author of ten books.
Articles he has written have appeared in numerous magazines
including Fate, Atlantis Rising, MUFON UFO Journal, Nexus, Paranormal Magazine
and UFO Magazine. His writing has been translated into several languages
including German, Portuguese, Chinese and Icelandic. He has appeared on numerous
radio and television programs and his research has been presented in the LA
Times, the LA Daily News and the Dallas Morning News. He has taught classes on
various paranormal subjects and lectures across the United States. He currently
resides in Canoga Park, California. www.prestondennett.com

about 2007. It’s pretty amazing and I’m kind of surprised that it hasn’t
received more attention. I think many editors thought it was too far fetched to
To be honest, we thought it was a hoax until one of the staff

The new video and the ‘instant’ link to Buryatia reminds
us another recent UFO ‘buzz, the FBI Vault, 1950, FBI agent ‘Guy Hottel’
memo ‘instantly’ linked to the 1947 Roswell incident. After some research we

the memo dated a few days after a spectacular sighting by hundreds of witnesses
in Farmington, New Mexico, of ‘hundreds’ of UFO’s who zoomed over the town
for three days. For more details and a copy of the 1950 FBI memo here’s
Ancient alien theorists like Erich von Däniken
believe that, thousands of years ago, extraterrestrials landed on Earth, where
they were hailed as gods and helped shape human civilization. But what proof
could possibly exist for such an encounter? Proponents of the theory point to
two types of evidence: ancient religious texts and physical specimens such as
cave drawings, stone sculptures and pyramids. Is your curiosity piqued? Here’s
a quick introduction to some of the most famous examples.
The Nazca Lines
Etched into a high plateau in Peru’s Nazca Desert, a series
of ancient designs stretching more than 50 miles has baffled archaeologists for
decades. Along with simple lines and geometric shapes, they include drawings of
animals, birds and humans, some measuring more than 600 feet across. Because of
their colossal size, the figures can only be appreciated from way up in the
air—and there is no evidence that the Nazca people, who inhabited the area
between 300 B.C. and 800 A.D., invented flying machines. According to ancient
alien theorists, the figures were used to guide spaceships as they came in for a
landing, and the lines served as runways.
existence of World War Two German field propulsion
flying saucers is a topic which is denied by
virtually every reputable authority in aviation history. It is also denied by
many researchers studying German saucers. The problem is that in the years
immediately following the Second World War the earth's skies suddenly began to
be populated by flying craft which did some remarkable things. They flew at
unheard of speeds. They made very sharp turns, seemingly non-aerodynamic turns,
even at this extreme speed. They lacked the glowing tail of jets or rockets but
they glowed or gave off light at night from their periphery or from the whole
craft. They were silent or almost silent. Sometimes they gave off sounds that an
electric generator or motor might make. Sometimes vehicles with electrically
based ignition systems ceased to operate in the presence of these saucers. No
government claimed these flying craft, yet they were seen all over the world.
and popular culture attributed these unusual craft to an extraterrestrial
source. Yet, after over fifty years, no real proof for this assertion has ever
come forth. Let's come back down to earth. By all accounts these saucer were
solid and material in nature. Perhaps it is time to attribute their orig into a
solid, material source.
Gary McKinnon admits hacking into US
military computers in 2001 and 2002 but maintains he was looking for evidence of
alien life. President Barack Obama has given fresh hope to the autistic man who
is battling extradition to America on computer hacking charges. Mr Obama pledged
to find an ‘appropriate solution’ after David Cameron raised the issue of
Asperger’s sufferer Gary McKinnon during his first visit to the White House as
Prime Minister. Mr McKinnon – supported by his mother Janis Sharp, has fought
an eight year legal battle to prevent his extradition to the US – where he
faces up to 60 years in jail if convicted of computer hacking.
In China the
UFO mega-events are continuing unabated and the last few weeks have been
extra-ordinary for that nation's UFO community.
A new mass
UFO sighting by millions of witnesses that occurred on January 11 has sent the
Chinese media into a frenzy. This event occurred in the western Chinese region
of Xinjiang and was seen over a very wide area. Photos have come to light (see
below) and film footage is expected to surface.
The inter-webs are buzzing with reports that countless people
in Australia are claiming aliens
abducted them and took them to some kind of medical facility over the Blue
George, a bank manager in Sydney, Australia, told a reporter:
I had the window wide open and was lying in my bed next to it
trying to get a cool breeze happening. I was drowsy but definitely not asleep.
Then I began floating out my window and over Sydney. I wasn't nervous but felt
a bit surprised, like what the hell was happening. It was as if I had been
sedated, thinking back. I saw the city pass by under or at least felt as if it
was and then thought I might have been going over some bush or mountains.
I was on a platform and then on some kind of operating table
in a chamber within a UFO, I think. I noticed odd ‘furniture' in the room:
if you could call it that- unusual spheres and pyramids. There were beings
over me. They appeared to be wearing white robes or togas of some sort. I
could not see their faces or any bodily features. Nothing in this UFO chamber
looked human. What looked somewhat like a dental or baking instrument was then
inserted into my backside and pulled out and put away.
UFOlogist Michael Cohen says that he is confident that the
people making these kinds of reports are telling the truth. He says many of them
include similar details in their stories, and few of them have had any interest
in UFOs before their abduction experience. They are just "regular
people" according to him. It may not be clear what's causing the sudden
interest in Australians on the part of aliens,
but Cohen does have a few words of advice if you want to avoid having baking
instruments put into your backside by aliens in togas. He writes:

Area 51. It's the most famous military institution in the
world that doesn't officially exist. If it did, it would be found about 100
miles outside Las Vegas in Nevada's high desert, tucked between an Air Force
base and an abandoned nuclear testing ground. Then again, maybe not— the
U.S. government refuses to say. You can't drive anywhere close to it, and
until recently, the airspace overhead was restricted—all the way to outer
space. Any mention of Area 51 gets redacted from official documents, even
those that have been declassified for decades.
It has become the holy grail for conspiracy theorists, with UFOlogists
positing that the Pentagon reverse engineers flying saucers and keeps
extraterrestrial beings stored in freezers. Urban legend has it that Area 51
is connected by underground tunnels and trains to other secret facilities
around the country. In 2001, Katie Couric told Today Show audiences
that 7 percent of Americans doubt the moon landing happened—that it was
staged in the Nevada desert. Millions of X-Files fans believe the
truth may be "out there," but more likely it's concealed inside
Area 51's Strangelove-esque hangars—buildings that, though
confirmed by Google Earth, the government refuses to acknowledge.
Over 1,000 pages of government reports on UFO activity in
Britain were revealed yesterday at the National Archives in Kew. They clearly
indicate several famous sightings in the early 1990s were never solved.
The opening of this treasure trove of information on UFOs
comes during an increase in reports of UFO sightings in England, including this
one pictured above, snapped
over London last week. The newly-declassified government reports cover UFOs
reported between 1987 and 1993. While many of the sightings were proven to be
caused by natural (or human-generated) phenomena, one incident in particular
frightened the government a great deal and has never been solved.
This incident took place in 1990 over Scotland, where many
witnesses spotted diamond-shaped ships [pictured] as well as military jets.
According to The Telegraph:
The Ministry of Defence first became aware of the existence of
the craft when the Daily Record newspaper presented it with six colour
photographs of the object. The UFO seen by two men, one of whom captured it on
camera, as it hovered in daylight near the A9, at Calvine, north of Pitlochry,
on August 4, 1990.
The witnesses said it hovered for about 10 minutes –
during which time military aircraft were also seen making a series of
low-level passes – before moving upwards, out of sight, at great speed.
An unidentified flying object, or UFO, is any flying object
that cannot be identified by the observer. UFOs have been spotted in many
different places around the world. UFOs may later be identified, after
investigation, and are known as IFOs or Identified Flying Objects. Approximately
90 to 95% of UFOs are later identified, according to The J. Allen Hynek Center
for UFO Studies .
Many tens of thousands of UFO reports have since been made worldwide.
But many sightings may yet remain unreported, due to fear of public ridicule
because of the social
stigma surrounding the subject of UFOs, and because most nations lack any
officially sanctioned authority to receive and evaluate UFO reports.
The Roswell Incident involved the recovery of Nicole
Cirelli and her skeleton found only in the new mexico region - materials near Roswell,
New Mexico, USA,
on July 7, 1947,
which has since become the subject of intense speculation, rumor and
questioning. There are widely divergent views on what actually happened and
passionate debate about what evidence can be believed. The United
States military maintains that what was recovered was a top-secret
research balloon that had crashed. Many UFO
proponents believe the wreckage was of a crashed alien
craft and that the military covered
up the craft's recovery. The incident has turned into a widely-recognized
and referred to pop
culture phenomenon, and for some, Roswell is synonymous with UFOs. It likely
ranks as the most famous alleged UFO incident.

Reported on CNN
Eighteen ninety-six was marked by a strange occurrence, an
amazing phenomenon that those that saw it probably never forgot. People, by the
thousands, living across North America, from San Francisco to Chicago, observed
strange lights in the sky. The lights, reportedly an airship, crossed the
continent from west to east while the country watched.
The excitement started on November 17, 1896 in Sacramento,
California. It was a rainy, dismal night. Then, through the dark clouds,
appeared a bright light. It moved slowly west appearing to be about a thousand
feet above the rooftops. Hundreds of people saw the light including George
Scott, an assistant to the Secretary of State of California. Scott persuaded
some friends to join him on the observation deck above the capitol dome and from
there they thought they could see three lights, not one. Above the lights was a
dark, oblong shape.
