The End of UFOs?

403px-PurportedUFO2Is the end of ufology upon us? Why has the fascination with UFOs seemingly dwindled?

via New York Magazine:

As the news of the day pulsed along the once seemingly unthinkable pathways of the information industry — boots on the ground in Gaza, slide show updates on Mila Kunis’s pregnancy — adherents of an earlier future gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The occasion was the annual conference of the Mutual Unidentified Flying Objects Network, which, in accordance with this year’s theme, “UFOs and the Media,” was focused not on the ephemera of the news cycle but rather on the eternalities of what several in attendance called “the biggest single story in  history,” i.e., the existence of extraterrestrial life on Earth and the cover-up of that presence by the United States government, the corporate structure, and their oblivious and/or sold-out lackeys in the mainstream press.

Just a little UFO story to brighten your Friday evening (though most of you probably already know this one).

via Mysterious Universe (click through to read the entire piece):

Lieutenant George F. Gorman, a veteran pilot in the North Dakota Air National Guard, has gone down in history as the subject of an amazing close encounter with a still-unidentified flying object. Taking place on the night of October 1st, 1948, Lieutenant Gorman’s encounter was one of the earliest reported pilot testimonies regarding a UFO, and remains a classic case to this day.

Lt. Gorman was a member of the North Dakota Air National Guard and upon returning to Hector airport in Fargo from a cross-country flight with his squadron, he decided to keep his F-51 Mustang in the air to log some night-flight hours. So while the rest of the squadron landed, Gorman stayed aloft, circling the town of Fargo.

Buzz Aldrin Discusses His Apollo XI ‘UFO Encounter’

AldrinOne of the most famous astronauts, Buzz Aldrin, just did a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) and predictably one of the questions was about UFOs. Here’s what Buzz had to say:

Q: Do you believe in aliens and what are the sightings you saw aboard Apollo 11?

A: On Apollo 11 in route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world – it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And i feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels.

Soviet UFO chart (PD)

Takeaway message: ET likes to party.

Click through to check out a nifty chart that lays out all of the extra-drunk, extra-terrestrial info you need.

Tuesday is the 67th anniversary of the rumored alien crash-landing in Roswell, New Mexico. But extraterrestrial aviators have been rather busy in the last few decades.

The National UFO Reporting Center has received about 90,000 reported sightings of UFOs in the last 40 years, according to the Economist. That’s about six per day—with the majority happening on Fridays, in the West, and during, um, drinking hours.

Open Minds Investigates Majestic 12 Documents


Open Minds Special Report – The origins of the Majestic 12 documents has its roots in a complicated set of events that included disinformation, hoaxes, and lies. For this reason, most of this history has been lost or is glossed over. However, the true origins of the documents and how UFO researchers came to know the term Majestic 12, is important when assessing their legitimacy. We have taken months to investigate this story, which has included working with the public relations department of the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations. While our investigation is ongoing, in this video we share with you what we have found thus far.

Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind

CloseEncountersImmersing oneself in the world of the unidentified flying object can be exciting, illuminating, stimulating, and enlightening. That very same world, however, is filled to the brim with cold-hearted killers that will not think twice about taking you out of circulation, if such action is deemed absolutely necessary. And not all of those cold-hearted killers are human.

There are cases after cases of missing aircraft, vanished and dead pilots, suspiciously-timed heart-attacks, murders made to look like suicides, the use of mind-control techniques to provoke quick deaths, the many links between the UFO phenomenon and the November 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the termination of numerous scientists with secret UFO links, journalists hung out to dry (as in forever), the terrifying human equivalents of so-called cattle-mutilations, and fatal illnesses provoked by close proximity to unidentified aerial craft.

In the very year that the UFO phenomenon entered popular culture, 1947, there was a grimly impressive catalog of deaths.

Humanoid UFO Occupants

Adam, Eve, and Elohim (Raëlism)

[disinfo ed.'s note: the following is an excerpt from: Unconventional Flying Objects: A Former NASA Scientist Explains How UFOs Really Work by Paul R. Hill.]

Only a couple of major points will be made about the humanoid UFO occupants. This section will therefore be brief. However, the subject is well worth more study than can be devoted to it in a single section or in an entire book. The reader is advised to make a study of this subject on his own for the double reward of basic education plus fascinating entertainment. Here is surely a case where truth is stranger than fiction. Only by the digestion of considerable occupant data can anyone get the proper feel for, and a balanced view of, the entire UFO panorama.

Outer Space and Inner Soul

Ted Peters

Ted Peters

Outer space has been lodged in my soul since my youth. This led me to write the first edition of UFOs: God’s Chariots? in 1977. In more recent years, I’ve invested considerable academic energy in the dialogue between science and religion with a special focus on astrobiology and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). One thing I learned is that SETI scientists and UFO researchers do not attend the same barbecues. Rather, they sneer at each other in each other’s absence. Each accuses the other of not being scientific enough. I find this curious, but not boring. So, after writing a few treatises on astrotheology and astroethics, I’m returning once again to the UFO question with a focus on the extraterrestrial hypothesis.

As I return to prepare the second edition, I find today’s media right where they were a half century ago. Unfortunately, the media still thinks that the entire UFO pie can be divided into two slices, people who believe in UFOs and skeptics who do not believe.

British Teenager Captures Strange Black Ring In The Sky

Via Huffington Post UK, introducing the Horrifying Black Ring of Leamington Spa:
Dubbed the Black Ring of Leamington Spa, the strange phenomenon was captured by Georgina Heap, 16, on her iPhone on Friday evening near Warwick Castle. Fire services have said no fires were reported at the time and the Met Office have said it does not appear to be weather-related. Heap said it was "The weirdest thing I have ever seen. It was just floating there like a cloud and then it disappeared. It wasn't birds either. There were about ten of us who stopped what we were doing and watched." UFO expert, Nick Pope, described the video as "truly bizarre" and added, "One other possibility is that the shape is made up of millions of bees or other insects, but I've never heard of insects behaving in this way before, so if this is the explanation, it's a real-life X-File."

Did A Mississippi Couple’s Infrared Camera Capture A UFO’s Interaction With Deer?

Mississippi UFOThis is why I would not be able to handle living in the country. Via South Mississippi's WLOX:
They were caught on camera the night of February 16. Mysterious lights that appeared in the sky over the 150 acres that Rainer and Edith Shattles call home in the Cumbest Bluff area of Jackson County. Were they a phenomenon that's simple to explain, or something else? The timeline of the pictures is clear. At 7:24pm, deer appear and all is normal. At 7:29, a dim light appears. At 7:35, it gets brighter. Then at 7:53, a weird shape appears on the camera. The deer are lit up brightly, but how? The cameras are infrared and don't emit light. At 7:56, another sharper light appears, then it gets much closer, seemingly focused on the deer. It looks like headlights, but well off the ground and there is no road. It then flies away.
