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.

Mark Pilkington’s 2010 book Mirage Men is one of the more credible takes I’ve read on the topic of unidentified flying objects. Pilkington alleges that many of the stories we’ve heard about alien visitors and flying saucers are part of a deliberate campaign of disinformation created by intelligence agencies to cover up secret military technology and clandestine operations. These “mirage men” have manipulated some UFO believers to the point of madness and beyond through the use of fabricated “evidence” and psychological warfare techniques, all in the name of national security.
Pilkington, along with directors John Lundberg, Roland Denning, and Kypros Kyprianou, just released a documentary based on the book. Also titled Mirage Men, the film expands on the premise of the book and feature interviews with some of the mirage men and their victims. It’s now available to rent online courtesy of Perception Management Productions, Random Media, and Yekra.… Read the rest
A group of aviation enthusiasts managed to capture photos of three mysterious aircraft streaking across the Texas sky. No one seems able to identify them.

Douglass and his group, armed with cameras and binoculars, met on March 10 at the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport. The airport is a perfect venue because it offers expansive views of Texas’ big sky and a steady stream of military air traffic. On a good day, the group can see various military jets, and even the elusive F-22 Raptor.
It was a clear day, and the group was alerted to three aircraft flying across the southwest skies. Douglass estimated that the planes got within 20 miles of the group and they started taking pictures with their 300mm zoom cameras. They looked at the photos, and saw that one appeared to be a silver-grey B-2 bomber.
The prospects of spotting a B-2 bomber was exciting, and Douglass said he got home to observe his photos when he noticed the aircraft in his picture had a smooth backside.
OpenMinds.tv eulogizes one of the only doctors specializing in the treatment of those suffering from alien-implanted objects in their bodies:
His interest in extraterrestrial-related phenomena emerged in his early childhood. His desire to find answers related to this enigmatic subject spawned a quest lasting nearly twenty years. Dr. Leir, a Podiatric Surgeon,became fascinated with alleged alien implants after removing a foreign object from a patient’s foot in 1995.
He formed a non-profit organization called A & S Research Inc. to investigate these anomalous objects. He and his surgical team performed fifteen surgeries on alleged alien abductees, resulting in the removal of sixteen objects they believe are alien implants.
Dr. Leir had struggled with various health issues in recent years. The official cause of death is still unclear.
From the forthcoming movie Mirage Men:

Paul Frederic Bennewitz, Jr. (September 29, 1927 – June 23, 2003) was an American businessman and UFO investigator who originated UFO Conspiracies in the 1980s.
A one-time PhD candidate in physics, Bennewitz claimed the existence of a plot involving an extensive network of UFO bases tied to an alien colonization and control scheme to subjugate the human race. After he saw the hypnosis sessions of Myrna Hansen, who claimed to have UFO experiences, he became convinced that cattle mutilations were due to aliens. As a result, Bennewitz claimed to have uncovered evidence of aliens controlling humans through electromagnetic devices, and furthermore claimed that UFOs were regularly flying near Kirtland and the nearby Manzano Nuclear Weapons Storage Facility and Coyote Canyon Test Area.
Convinced that he was intercepting electronic communications originating from alien spacecraft located outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bennewitz soon believed that he had located a secret alien facility that he called Dulce Base.
Via the Guardian Liberty Voice, did Chiao see a UFO while at the International Space Station?
From October 2004 until April 2005, astronaut Leroy Chiao was flying high as commander of the International Space Station. While he and Russian cosmonaut Salizhan Sharipov were taking a stroll outside of the ISS something caught Chiao’s attention. The two were putting together navigational antennas 230 miles above the ground and flying at 17,000 miles an hour when something went by them, traveling even faster.
Chiao says that he saw some lights that he thought were in a line. When the lights flew by him, Chiao thought it was “…awfully strange.” Sharipov was looking the other way. Chiao’s experience is one of several stories that will be told on an upcoming program on the Science Channel.
As an astronaut, Chiao doesn’t believe an intelligently controlled craft from another planet has ever visited Earth [but says] “I have an open mind and I do believe there’s other life in the universe.”
Watch the skies on April 5. You might be lucky enough to see a “UFO.” The current crop of UFOlogists might not find this funny, but I can’t help but think that infamous characters like Gray Barker would have been amused.

Dozens of volunteers around the world have signed up for what may be the biggest prank in history – using decades of knowledge of ‘UFO sightings’ to time the launch perfectly.
The ‘aliens’ will be strips of LED lights, on remote-controlled multi-rotor drone aircraft – launched at 8pm, so there are plenty of people to see the ‘invaders’, and held at a distance where it’s difficult to see what’s behind the glowing lights.
Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes UFO Investigations manual found plans to “cause a wave of UFO sightings around the world and an apocalypse-like idea in the media,” on forums frequented by drone fans.
The thing about magick that’s difficult to explain to the uninitiated is that you absolutely have to do it to understand it entirely. You can’t just read about it in books. Supposedly “coincidental” events start piling on top of each other in such a way that you can’t deny the interconnected nature of consciousness anymore. The ideas of dead matter and cold randomness start to appear increasingly primitive. You try to buy into them because that’s what you’ve been taught since birth but the hive mind keeps throwing wrenches into that whole design from the inside. Eventually you learn to ride the strange and start looking for the plot and how you fit into it rather than denying that there is one a priori. I try to write about this connective sensation as much as I can (more on Facebook than here, friend me), and last weekend was one of those odd examples of the universe tapping into my private thoughtspace and playing tag.… Read the rest

Over the years, many explanations have been put forward to try to ‘solve’ the UFO enigma. Some sound very convincing, and others sound like a science fiction novel gone wrong. Not surprisingly, there never seems to be an answer that satisfies everyone.
At the dawn of ufology the USAF used experts to consider all manner of natural and man-made phenomena that might cause witnesses to think they had seen a UFO. The cases that remained unexplained were (a) regarded as the result of insufficient information being available for an adequate explanation, (b) ignored as implausible, or (c) were the work of hoaxers.… Read the rest
The new movie Mirage Men‘s subtitle is: “How the US government created a myth that took over the world.” A promising topic for any disinfonaut, surely, but it really has some bona fides that make us recommend it to you.
Way back in the dark ages of the year 2,000 an insatiably curious and cool alternative journalist arrived in New York to cover an all-day marathon of counterculture called disinfo.con, featuring the likes of Robert Anton Wilson, Marilyn Manson, Grant Morrison and Kenneth Anger, among many, many others. His name was Mark Pilkington and he has gone on to write for numerous newspapers and magazines and has published several books including our own Far Out: 101 Strange Tales From Science’s Outer Edge. Mark’s been working on Mirage Men for years; nominally he’s the writer, but believe me he was an instrumental part of the team that made this film, and you should check it out.… Read the rest
