The funny thing about debunkers, deniers, etc... is for the ET / UFO phenonmenon to NOT be true (In an absolute sense), EVERY single one of the reports would have to be a lie, delusion, or misidentification. If even one of them is authentic, then that changes everything. Of course, practically speaking, most "normal" people don't investigate these things with any seriousness - even when the information is a few mouse clicks away or potential evidence in plain sight (crop circles). Or there is too much disinfo / fake news / movie images to cloud one's perception. OR too much fear that their world view is incorrect or fatally flawed.

With that said, a list of all the famous and semi-famous people who have gone public would be interesting. Here is a starting list. Please add and note the source / share a video link.

Person and source:


astronaut Gordon Cooper - Out of the Blue documentary and others - states categorically he saw a UFO land, I think he said he was flying with some other pilots

astronaut Buzz Aldrin - on some documentary or maybe CNN? don't remember.

astronaut Edgar Mitchell - appeared in numerous docs. Not sure if he has ever categorically stated he has seen something, or if it was only 2nd hand.

actor Dan Aykroyd - Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFOs documentary - does talk about mass telepathy too...urge to go outside and look up at night

actress Shirley McClaine - www.neonnettle.com...

ex-Canadian Defense Minister (and 'Deputy PM') - Paul Hellyer - makes numerous 2nd hand claims (video on Youtube of interview with RT, also some government hearing), but does state he saw a UFO with his wife at home over a lengthy period of time

news reporter Jamie Mussan - various documentaries on UFOs or crop circles

Ex US President Jimmy Carter - caught on camera during a book signing briefly confirming he saw a UFO (Out of the Blue doc?)

Ex US State of Arizona Governor Fife Symington - Phoenix Lights documentary, other news outlets

Other - not so famous:

various Generals, or high ranking military - don't have any specific names at the moment to list - except US Col. Philip Corso who wrote Day After Roswell

various individuals on Exo-politics - don't recall any specific names other than Steven Greer, profession unknown, but I wouldn't call him famous.

various governments who have released their UFO files - Belgium? France?

TV show from the 1980s - Unsolved Mysteries had a special on mass Belgium UFO sightings, I seem to recall there was some high government officials, but I don't remember any names. Belgian defense minister or something like that?? I'd have to rewatch it.

Tom Delonge (from bands Blink 182 & Angels & Airwaves) - he's done some AMAs here on ATS too.

William Shatner also.

I guess Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said in 2008 he believes in aliens..

Every human is capable of doing human things, such as misidentifications.

For that matter, being famous does not necessarily preclude someone from lying or being delusional. I'm not saying that the epeople on that list were necessarily lying or being delusional, but I wouldn't say it was not possible "just because these people are famous". I believe the vast majority UFO sightings are misidentifications, with a few lies and delusions thrown in. And maybe some are real aliens, (maybe?) but no real solid evidence for that yet.

By the way, many people on that list, such as Paul Hellyer and Edgar Mitchell NEVER CLAIMED to have learned secret information about alien visitation due to there positions and/or occupations. Both Hellyer and Mitchel have said that their beliefs are based on information they learned as private citizens -- information that anyone can learn (although Hellyer speaks of a "hearsay" event after Hellyer left office in which some general told him alien visitation was real)

So those are simply famous people who believe in alien visitation who happen to be famous.
So what? Why would being famous matter more when it comes to believing in alien visitation?

What I mean is this...
Why would a non-famous person who believes in alien visitation have their belief be less meaningful simply because they are not famous?

If some grocery store clerk or a doctor or a plumber says they believe in alien visitation, should we treat their beliefs differently because they are not famous?

Being famous doesn't in any way make them smarter, or their opinions any better.

You are correct. Potentially, famous people have more credibility to lose? It depends on the industry they are in and the degree to which they discuss their views. Though you could say the reverse is true, that someone wealthy doesn't care about their credibility and doesn't have much to lose if they are secure. Whereas someone with less resources, could lose opportunities if people were aware of their "weird" beliefs.

With that said, many people ascribe a certain "trustworthiness" to familiar names - for better or worse. That's what drives politics, sports, entertainment, science to a degree -- star power / name recognition. And moving to products - brand recognition. In the absence of other info, if you met me on the street and I said A was true and famous person X (Or somebody with a 'fancy' title - like Doctor or the appearance of lots of money) said A was false - who would you believe without doing any further research?

If you know how to face read and read body language / voice, that would be give you a high probability answer - but many (most) people don't know about this / haven't studied it. So, I would say most people would go with famous / rich person X, rather than me - insignificant me.

Some day we will exist without this deference to authority / titles - but we aren't living in this day yet.

I could talk about things that most (99%+) of doctors are ignorant / clueless about - but I have no titles to back me up..just real world experience and ongoing results... this will be a story for another day and time. Personally, I don't like any titles. Any titles...

I've had my own experiences, so I don't need anyone to validate or not - just curious, that's why I started this thread.

An awesome AMA? Where you there? Because I was and let's just say it was obvious he didn't write one sentence of "his" books.

Besides who cares what some empty headed self-absorbed overrated parrots think about it?
The OP was almost a positive surprise sticking mostly with former officials and astronauts, but actors? Really? Because they know, or what? Why?

Your gtfo made me laugh! I never saw that in shorthand!


I'm hesitant to reveal my #1 health thing that is verifiable and that is on a website I created because that would reveal my identity on ATS and I don't feel like doing that at this time.

Okay, I'll give you a few bones of related research.....but I don't want to derail the thread. Visit and watch the documentary located at --- www.lightdocumentary.com. Also watch Eat the Sun. And watch Discovery Channel - The Boy with Divine Powers. Only the last one in full is on Youtube. The other two you will have to purchase/rent - one of them is on Vimeo, the other Youtube. All 3 shed light on the same topic - in different ways. I don't believe every individual on these docs, but there is enough there - that IMHO would get people thinking and wondering about the possibilities.

Then you'll see re: the subject at hand, it it isn't just 99% of doctors, but 99% of humanity! That topic is even more obscure and "hard to accept" than ET / UFOs.... my knowledge on this particular subject is with personal experience that goes way beyond these docs...but that is for another day!

The speech, 2nd video, is a far better watch... not only does UFO information get passed along, but he reveals his attachments to the 100's of underground military bases.

I would think that even a non-famous person could worry just as much about their reputation among their peers.


In the absence of other info, if you met me on the street and I said A was true and famous person X (Or somebody with a 'fancy' title - like Doctor or the appearance of lots of money) said A was false - who would you believe without doing any further research?

I would always do more research, no matter who said something. People should never blindly believe something someone tells them "just because they are famous or have a fancy title". Granted, the word of a professional (doctor, lawyer, etc) might have a little more value depending on the subject matter, but I would still want to do my own research rather than blindly believing them.

...And if a doctor or lawyer says they say a light in the sky that had to be an alien ship, I would not necessarily put more faith in that than I would if a plumber told me the same thing.

But we are not only talking about "seeing UFOs that seem to be alien ships", but we are instead talking about general belief in alien visitation, and it would be irrelevant who a person is (for the most part) if they said they have a personal belief in alien visitation. Anyone, famous or not, educated professional or not, can have that personal belief.



If you know how to face read and read body language / voice, that would be give you a high probability answer - but many (most) people don't know about this / haven't studied it. So, I would say most people would go with famous / rich person X, rather than me - insignificant me.

Reading a face and reading body language only works if the person is consciously lying. If a person (famous or not famous)truly believes they saw something otherworldy, even if it was a misidentification, then their face and body language would be just as if they DID see something ontherworldy.

Paul Hellyer and the late Edgar Mitchell truly believed in alien visitation (although neither of them have specific hard evidence for it -- it was a personal belief), so their faces and body language would be true. Jimmy Carter saw something (which some thinks might have been Venus), so he, too would appear to be telling the truth, because he was telling the truth that he actually saw something he believed was mysterious.


...By the way, you mentioned Buzz Aldrin before, but his experience had to do with the seeing an object in the distance in space on his way to the Moon. It is though today that the object he saw could have been discarded parts of the launch vehicle (the SLA panels) that stayed in a trajectory relatively similar to that of the Command Module he was in.

astronaut Gordon Cooper - Out of the Blue documentary and others - states categorically he saw a UFO land, I think he said he was flying with some other pilots


Two different sightings. He saw "Foo Fighters" with other pilots. He did NOT say categorically that he saw a UFO land. He said he saw some film that had been developed by holding it up to a window. It had "legs" and landed. Some security guys came and took the film away and it was never seen again. It could have been anything, including ours.


astronaut Buzz Aldrin - on some documentary or maybe CNN? don't remember.


Then how can you use him as a source? He's said some interesting and enigmatic things over the years, but has never said he "saw a UFO" and attributed t to aliens.


astronaut Edgar Mitchell - appeared in numerous docs. Not sure if he has ever categorically stated he has seen something, or if it was only 2nd hand.


100% second hand reports. He knew some guys who told him they had seen something. That's hearsay evidence, not admissible.


actor Dan Aykroyd - Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFOs documentary - does talk about mass telepathy too...urge to go outside and look up at night


It would be more correct to say he BELIEVES in UFOs. He hasn't reported anything definitive.


actress Shirley McClaine - www.neonnettle.com...


Wow. A complete nutcase.


ex-Canadian Defense Minister (and 'Deputy PM') - Paul Hellyer - makes numerous 2nd hand claims (video on Youtube of interview with RT, also some government hearing), but does state he saw a UFO with his wife at home over a lengthy period of time


Another believer whose interest was piqued when he attended a Steven Greer conference in Hawaii and read Corso's book. This was well after he retired. He has been shamelessly used by Greer & Co because he was Canada's Defence Minister and tat lends him an aura of authority. He hasn't seen anything more than a light in the sky.


news reporter Jamie Mussan - various documentaries on UFOs or crop circles


Mussan does not have the best reputation amongst UFO researchers. He's widely seen as either credulous or a hoaxer or both.


Ex US President Jimmy Carter - caught on camera during a book signing briefly confirming he saw a UFO (Out of the Blue doc?)


Yes, he did, and he even reported it at the time. Just so happens his "UFO" was in the exact same altitude and direction as Venus. in any case, it was just a light in the sky that he thought was unusually bright.


Ex US State of Arizona Governor Fife Symington - Phoenix Lights documentary, other news outlets


He said he saw the Phoenix lights himself, years after making fun of them. Basically he disputes the idea they were flares, and in that he is in good company with a lot of other people.

Other - not so famous:


various Generals, or high ranking military - don't have any specific names at the moment to list - except US Col. Philip Corso who wrote Day After Roswell


Poor Corso. Did you know that he single-handedly was responsible for keeping Italy out of Communist hands in WW II? That's what he said. His book is so full of errors that even HE said it was crap before he died. He claims to have "salted" industry with UFO secrets such as integrated circuits and night vision. Unfortunately the design for integrated circuits is basically unchanged since he 1890s. He also met a UFO guy on a cave where the alien asked him to turn off his radar so the alien could escape.


various individuals on Exo-politics - don't recall any specific names other than Steven Greer, profession unknown, but I wouldn't call him famous.


The exo-politics people have a vested interest in proving "Disclosure" which they never have done. Greer claims he can "vector in" UFOs with music and lights. He has claimed to be in UFOs, except that they are invisible so unless you have the correct vibes, you can't see them. He also claims the Bad Guys gave him cancer and attacked him with a "scalar" weapon though he somehow emerged from all this unscathed.


various governments who have released their UFO files - Belgium? France?


Are you saying this is "evidence"? Yes, Belgium had a triangle incident that was widely reported. Have you read these "released files"? They say, "Mr X saw a light in the sky" mostly.


TV show from the 1980s - Unsolved Mysteries had a special on mass Belgium UFO sightings, I seem to recall there was some high government officials, but I don't remember any names. Belgian defense minister or something like that?? I'd have to rewatch it.


Yes, you have to rewatch it. I'm not sure you could call "Unsolved Mysteries" evidence. The problem here is that you have extremely poor examples and you haven't proven anything. The idea that "famous people" lend some sort of credence to UFO sightings is a false logical premise. It's called the "argument from authority." Jimmy Carter knows nothing about UFOs, but he saw a light in the sky once (probably Venus) which would be completely unremarkable except years later he became President.

I do not deny the UFO phenomenon. I've studied it for years. The fact that they exist is self-evident by definition. There are some very good sightings in the historical record, but your list here is just pathetically sad. You have known charlatans on here such as Greer and Mussan, nutcases like McClaine, a lot of people who have seen nothing more than lights in the sky, a fair number of people who knew a guy who knew a guy who saw one, and quite a few where you can't remember what they saw at all.

Go to www.ufowatchdog.com... and read about some of these guys. The site is defunct and merely archived now, but it still has some good background information on many of the people you cited. (I worked on the site for a short time, but a not responsible for most of the listings.)

Ditto Schyler...

astronaut Gordon Cooper - Out of the Blue documentary and others - states categorically he saw a UFO land, I think he said he was flying with some other pilots

No, this claim merely proves you are deluded....

astronaut Buzz Aldrin - on some documentary or maybe CNN? don't remember.

No, Aldrin is crystal clear he was talking about debris off his own spacecraft, a common sight in those days
www.jamesoberg.com...

astronaut Edgar Mitchell - appeared in numerous docs. Not sure if he has ever categorically stated he has seen something, or if it was only 2nd hand.

I'm sure -- he has categorically stated he NEVER had a personal experience and that none of the astronauts he knew in the 1960s had seen UFOs in space

Aykroyd's mass telepathic story seems connected with this prosaic event -- www.jamesoberg.com...

No, you DON'T get to keep swinging at pitches because a single hit will win the came. You struck out three-for-three out of the gate. Game over.

some nice responses....I'll respond to those later...but just a follow up about GORDON COOPER:



Starts at about 30 minutes - Out of the Blue doc - Gordon Cooper discussion. Watch for about 2.5 minutes.

Ok, I got one part wrong. He wasn't flying. (Though maybe elsewhere in another doc - he saw foo fighters - I don't remember. I didn't write the post claiming knowledge of all the facts in every case, just my lasting impressions) But -- in Out of the Blue above it says he was WITNESS to an event. He was SUPERVISING the filming of a precision landing facility for F-86 fighter jets (At Edwards AFB). Suddenly a saucer like craft FLEW DIRECTLY OVER the camera man. Object landed on dry lake bed..... he does talk about the film. Seems to say he was already going up the ranks reporting the incident BEFORE the film was developed. Which seems to imply AGAIN that he was WITNESS to it.

So...based on the clip...I didn't strike out - maybe both of you got that part wrong - Unless you know something I don't about Gordon Cooper and the narration of the video is inaccurate or I am not listening correctly. This is all I have to go on re: Gordon Cooper.

...and re: Aykroyd - he says he personally received the telepathic message. I'm *almost* 100% certain on that....digging up the video for that will not be difficult. That is a first hand account.

I already know it's possible...because I've been telepathically controlled to do certain things, and say certain things. Also telepathically I've felt pain induced in certain parts of my body to get my attention. And that was just when they made me aware of it. I'm certain I've done things w/o being consciously aware I was being controlled...because the events I just talked about could not have happened without me doing things unwittingly. But this is not relevant to this thread - cuz I'm not famous or semi-famous. Not yet anyway.



posted on May, 1 2017 @ 03:43 PM

Ok, this confirms his flying and seeing UFOS. Maybe some call them foo fighters, whatever, he did see UFOs...or maybe they were high flying seed pods? Better yet, maybe they were just large high altitude birds of an unknown species.

...so in this video it makes it more clear he was NOT WITNESS to the landing saucer. I would say that makes Out of the Blue - sketchy editing. Thanks for the clarification Soylent. So it isn't exactly first hand, but then it was right after the event, and the kind of digital / instant film fakery that we have today, didn't exist then. Or maybe it did...

I wouldn't call noting Gordon Cooper on the list a strike out then. But, hey say whatever you want........maybe you are part of the cover up...

Excuse me, Jim, but you messed up there. I think your zeal in attacking me prevented you from understanding the difference between OP's posts and my responses because, if you'll take a look back, you'll see we agree on most points. Nice try.
