Is the UFO "official disclosure" "Bottlenecking?"

Well.. interesting 2015 so far.


I'm not able to use the search button for some reason, so if this already posted, my apologies.



UFO and alien encounter declared true by historical society



The Great Barrington Historical Society and Museum has inducted an alleged UFO sighting and alien abduction because they believe the case to be “historically significant and true.”
The announcement was made early last month. In it, they refer to the incident as an “off-world/UFO case” that involves Great Barrington residents Thomas Reed and his family. The incident took place on September 1, 1969, and began with UFO sightings that were reported by multiple witnesses in the area. Many of the witnesses had contacted Great Barrington’s WSBS radio, who reported on the incident at the time.

As The Boston Globe reports, Reed claims that this UFO sighting was part of a string of strange encounters he and his family experienced beginning back in 1966. The first encounter took place on their horse farm when Reed was 6 years old. He and his younger brother saw strange lights coming from the forest and strange figures in their hallway. They remember seeing a large disc-shaped craft in a clearing in the forest, and being taken aboard.
They experienced similar incidents over the next few years.
In one instance, while driving with his mother, younger brother, and grandmother, Reed remembers strange lights in the sky. Soon after, they found themselves in a giant room where they met with two large ant-like creatures. Moments later, they were back in their car.
Reed went into more detail on the encounters and shared the Great Barrington Historical Society’s press release with the audience at the International UFO Congress in Arizona.
In the press release, the Great Barrington Historical Society lists some reasons why they decided to induct the case. They note that the case was examined by U.S. Air Force’s official UFO investigation, Project Blue Book, and that the case was mentioned at the United Nations in 1992.
They also state that, “this renowned case has received international recognition due to factual and corroborated evidence as well as first hand testimony, including recent polygraph test, the Great Barrington Historical Society confirms that the Reed off-world incident is historically significant and true and warrants induction in the GBHS collection.”

Hm from their homepage:



GBHS is a volunteer organization open to anyone interested in learning more about, preserving and supporting local history. As a non-profit, GBHS depends entirely on the financial support of its donors to carry out its mission.

Jumping on the UFO train maybe? To get more donations, a mean part of me says.
Either way this is entirely irrelevant, they are just preserving one story of one who is a local. Doesn't exactly make the case more profound.

Neither does your statement…

Some people thought it was profound enough to call it in, though…

How about a couple of links to some of this factual and corroborated evidence?

Not everyone here would know about this case so a link or two explaining the case might be a good idea.




So... what we can expect next?


I would guess not a lot, more of the same ol' same old.

Are not most of the museums open to donations? I mean as non-profit organizations...

Well... about it being irrelevant, is up to you, because when a museum classify it as historical, it makes relevant enough to me

Unfortunately not. There are creationists museums and that doesn't mean men were riding on dinosaurs.
Don't get me wrong I too think 2015 is the year of disclosure, but this is just, a tiny straw in a huge haystack.

Every day more confirmed sightings. What I'd like to know is way is everyone and their mother jumping on the train now of all times? What was wrong doing it in 2014 or earlier? What change in personal, view point or proof has caused this mass movement to the other side.

The Internet?

More and more people reading information they would ordinarily not have access to.


The historic UFO case of the Reed Family, was assigned a Vallee classification of “CE4” (close encounter of the 4th kind), with a case category of 3 (physical evidence). The case has many layers and is deeply entwined and remains one of a few CE4 cases to be mentioned within the walls of the United Nations.

Ut oh... There are pictures of fairies and elves in art museums. Guess that means they're real.
Great Barrington is a nowhere little city in the Birkshire mountains of western Massachusetts. Home of Saturday evening post artist Norman Rockwell, the Red Lion Inn and Dorothies ruffled originals curtains. Quaint but hardly Cambridge.
An historical societies little museum is not the Smithsonian Institute.

There are stories like this every year. It's nothing new nor has there been any escalation in reports. a reply to: ObjectZero

Doesn't Rachel NV have an ET/UFO museum? I guess that settles it, huh?

well.. so far we have people calling it:

a money begging museum;
a museum that is too small to be considered;
pushing fairies and elves at museums as if this were in the same place.(im sure you can find lots of art in museums too);
creationism vs evolution talk;

Are you not tired about the same rocks thrown in every UFO thread?

The modus operandi is clear, what is not clear is why people even expect an answer in those calls.

Please try some common sense. Those rocks as you call them are called logical arguments in more intellectual circles.

This is the first line of what you have quoted in your post, the bolding of a certain word is my doing

"The Great Barrington Historical Society and Museum has inducted an alleged UFO sighting and alien abduction because they believe the case to be “historically significant and true.”


I guess its like most that are interested in such subjects, they believe certain sightings are still unidentified, some believe they are ET others believe other explanation might fit the bill.

Its a declaration that they believe the case to be a true "off-world/UFO" experience.

Not an official verification that it actually was, just that the historical society believe it to be.




So... what we can expect next?


More beliefs to shared by other organizations maybe,


Believers in ET abductions and visitations thinking is evidence to support their beliefs, even though the case is classified as unidentified or was by Hyneck and the airforce.

The first post points out something interesting, could they be doing this to gain attention to maybe receive more donations from people that also share their belief of this being off-world a the explanation for the sightings?


Interesting non the less, thanks for sharing

You asked for suggestions and now get upset when they are given.

Yes the modus operandi is clear, beliefs are beliefs not facts, some beliefs might mirror fact however until certain beliefs are proven as fact they remain as simply beliefs, doesn't matter who has them and/or how important others think the one sharing their belief is or are.

"settles it"? I believe that is known as a strawman argument, since nobody ever said that. You are just pulling it out of your own rear end... Nobody said this settles it. It's just an interesting precident in what may be a long line of disclosure events as a slow release of information to acclimate the public before the big reveal. Whether there will be a reveal or whether there will be any truth to it, who knows? There could be military craft, aliens, demons posing as ET, or.... Nothing.

But the fact remains nobody ever said this case settles anything, so you are kinda acting like an ass...

The museums volunteer curators are probably CIA disinformation agents trying to bring in some revenue to the tourism industry.
