Here are some interesting quotes from respectable people regarding the UFO phenomena.
Russia and the U. S. have announced they are definitely planning several space machines. So it's quite possible that the first space ships or
satellites may encounter other interplanetary machines, manned or otherwise. Our space devices may even be closely approached by such alien
~ Maj. Don Keyhoe USMC, November 29, 1957 ~
We have no proof, But if we extrapolate, based on the best information we have available to us, we have to come to the conclusion that ... other life
probably exists out there and perhaps in many places...
~ Neil Armstrong, Oct 21, 1999. ~
Statistically it's a certainty there are hugely advanced civilizations, intelligences, life forms out there. I believe they're so advanced they're
even doing interstellar travel. I believe it's possible they even came here.
~ Astronaut Storey Musgrove ~
The evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident and that indeed an alien craft did crash and that material was recovered from that
crash site, says Mitchell, who became the sixth man on the moon in the Apollo 14 mission. Mitchell doesn't say he's seen a UFO. But he says he's
met with high-ranking military officers who admitted involvement with alien technology and hardware. Cooper told a U.N. committee recently, Every day
in the U.S.A., our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. Cooper speculates that public skepticism toward UFOs will
~ Astronaut Gordon Cooper and Ed Mitchell in an interview. ~
I have been over the years very skeptical like many others. But in the last ten years or so, I have known the late Dr. Alan Hynek - who I highly
admire. I know and currently work with Dr. Jacques Vallee. I've come to realize that the evidence is building up to make this a valid and
researchable question. Further, because my personal motivation has always been to understand our universe better, and my own theoretical work has
convinced me that life is everywhere in the universe that has been permitted to evolve, I consider this a very timely question... By becoming more
involved with the serious research field, I've seen the evidence mount towards the truth of these matters. I rely upon the testimony of contacts that
I have had - old timers - who were involved in official positions in government and intelligence and militiary over the last 50 years. We cannot say
that today's government is really covering it up - I think that most of them don't know what is going on anymore than the public...
~ Dr. Ed Mitchell Apollo 14 Astronaut, MSN Interview 10/98. ~
It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an
engineered structure, made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and
inside there were openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos
showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away.
~ Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev commenting on a UFO sighting that occurred while en route to the Solyut 6 space station in April of 1979. ~
At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs
~ Astronaut Scott Carpenter-Carpenter photographed a UFO while in orbit on May 24, 1962. NASA still has not released the photograph. ~
...I've been asked about UFOs and I've said publicly I thought they were somebody else, some other civilization.
~ Commander Eugene Cernan, Commanded the Apollo 17 Mission-The quote is from a 1973 article in the Los Angeles Times. ~
Unknown objects are operating under intelligent control... It is imperative that we learn where UFO's come from and what their purpose is...
~ Admiral Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter Director, Central Intelligence Agency 1947-1950 ~
This 'flying saucer' situation is not at all imaginary or seeing too much in some natural phenomena. Something is really flying around. The
phenomenon is something real and not visionary or fictitious.
~ Gen. Nathan Twining Chief of Staff, US Air Force, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ~
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been requested to assist in the investigation of reported sightings of flying disks...
~ John Edgar Hoover Director FBI 1924-1972 ~
You now face a new world, a world of change. We speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict between a united human
race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy." "The nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war will be an
interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.
~ General Douglas MacArthur- Oct. 8, 1955 ~
We have, indeed, been contacted-perhaps even visited-by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of
the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.
Victor Marchetti, former Special Assistant to the Executive Director of the CIA, in an article written by him for Second Look entitled "How the CIA
Views the UFO Phenomenon Vol 1, No 7," Washington, DC, May, 1979. In any case, the Air Force has arrived to the conclusion that a certain number of
anomalous phenomena has been produced within Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations compiled in this [SOBEPS] book,
reinforced by the reports of the night of March 30-31 , have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorized aerial
activities have taken place. Until now, not a single trace of aggressiveness has been signaled; military or civilian air traffic has not been
perturbed nor threatened. We can therefore advance that the presumed activities do not constitute a direct menace.;The day will come undoubtedly when
the phenomenon will be observed with technological means of detection and collection that won't leave a single doubt about its origin. This should
lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time. A mystery that continues to the present. But it exists, it is real, and that in
itself is an important conclusion.
