Hi Karl 12

Just thought I would add something about the old Aurora case that is interesting,

And it doesn't prove anything about space people, but MUFON did an episode about it, and they went to the cemetery in Aurora sending a team of investigators and found the grave with a headstone that had a saucer engraved on it, and tried to get permission to exhume it, and were denied doing so by the church or something.

So they left that day, and before leaving the town, they went back to get a last look at it the next day and found it had been exhumed by government types, and they removed everything including the grave marker.

Oh, and they said they used a metal detector the first day they found the exact grave and it definitely detected a substantial hit within. But the next day all traces were gone. Hearing this straight from MUFON has me thinking it wasn't a hoax.

Stanton Friedman also claimed to have interviewed an old woman who was 5 years old when it happened and she said it was the talk of the town, and everyone there knew about it.

Thanks for the great threads!

We should also possibly be aware that ET flying saucers (foo fighters) are sometimes encased in a fiery dense plasma shield --- Possibly as a offensive/defensive mechanism, and also as a source of fuel for a photon based propulsion engine, in places that lack starlight photons.

Have you ever seen one, ones TDS or spoken to a crew member?

If by a report of a report, you mean a story that has changed quite a lot after being retold, like "I heard a guy say once...", then I would agree, or do you mean a majority of reports simply can't be trusted because they are unverified as a verbatim copy of the original content?

What I mean by "a report of a report" is that many times we have a report of something having been reported but with no references to the original report, so we cannot really know if this new report is true or not, as anyone can say that there was a report of something.

For example, the first image on the opening post:

In this case we have what looks like a newspaper article saying that someone read from a book written by "a writer of inexplicable happenings". It may all be true, but an article about someone reading a book is hardly an original report, and we don't even get a reference to a possible date of publication of the original source.

Ah indeed, I see what you mean.. Thanks for the reply.

That's an interesting concept. If a report is very old, or even brand new, and it is copied word for word, then it IS the report.

Fair points about the heritage of some of these early saucer reports and below are some source material links to relevant old magazine articles and books that are permitted by author to be in the public domain - some of the original Fort material is really interesting and there's also some 1947 literature documenting disc sightings prior to the Arnold case (as well as early folklore).


New Lands by Charles Fort

As in his other books, many of the phenomena here are straight-on UFO reports. Fort gives numerous instances of 'airship' sightings, some with multiple attestations over wide regions. Many of the sightings occurred decades before humans attained heavier-than-air flight. What is striking to modern readers is the language used by the authorities to explain these sightings: bright stars, luminescent gas, mirages, ball lightning, and mass hysteria...and, just prior to WWI, reports of mysterious cylinders over south England were attributed to the Germans. So not only have there been mysterious lights in the sky long before the initial UFO flap in the late 1940s, the powers that be have likewise attempted to dismiss these reports in similar terms for a long time..

Thanks for that one mate - good catch! Dr Hynek also mentions in this interview about Dr Sturrock's statistical report into AAS UFO astronomer sightings and there's a good list here containing some early reports (also this interesting one from the Air Technical Intelligence Centre at Wright Patterson Air Force Base).

a reply to: NoCorruptionAllowed

Thanks for the post about Aurora mate and will keep an open mind when looking into that one.

Don't know if you've seen it but there's also a great interview here about early British reports and some of the lesser known 'saucer' cases are being discussed.

Thanks for the post mate and some of the historical coins and paintings are certainly open to subjective interpretation - thought Eiieu's link was an important one about religious context although to be fair there's an awful lot of biblical accounts of stationary clouds, sky thrones, fiery chariots, flying rolls, pillars of light, platforms, vessels and fiery wheels in the sky described as exhibiting rapid, prolonged flight; hovering; ascending or descending (link).

Don't know about origin my friend but there are some intriguing comments below from NASA's Paul Hill, Dr Hynek and the Rand Corporation about UFO colour change during acceleration (which may support the plasma idea) -also some very freaky early reports:


At night they are primarily visible by self-generated light and only secondarily by reflection, and virtually all colors of the spectrum are reported, with a change in color often observed as the UFO accelerates.'
Dr J Allen Hynek - Speech to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Brightness and color changes are also noted, and while the sample is small (82 cases) NICAP found the following: Of the 25 cases showing a change in brightness, 23 of the changes occurred at the moment of a velocity change (a change of either magnitude or direction). Concerning the change of color, 23 cases showed a color change related to acceleration. While the supporting data are not conclusive, it appears that the spectral shift is to the red upon acceleration.
The RAND Corporation, 'UFOs: What to Do'

"All UFO colors stem from energetic, ionizing radiation or radiations, generated by the UFO, which ionize the air. Of all the visible colors, red and orange correspond to the least energy. They are also the two most common colors associated with UFO low-power operation, such as hovering or low-power maneuvers. The electrons have been given the ionization energy, but not much more, and cascade down in small energy drops corresponding to red or orange. This is statistically probable, as there are more small drops available than big ones.
NASA's Paul Hill

Thanks for all the PDF links, reading the first one now. That is a lot of good quality PDF reading material in there to be sure.

Checking out the linked video's as well, thanks!

The more we learn and remember, the harder it is for "them" to erase our memories of these things with their various methods. (kind of a joke, but it isn't really false).

I possibly had a double nighttime foo fighter sighting (with two other witnesses), one night in November of 1976 approximately 40 miles west of Washington D.C.. I saw it in it's high power bluish-white phase and in the reddish-orange fusion plasma low-power phase; during it's possible landing on Earth.

Interesting. the spectral shift isnt because theres more energy in the plasma per se. Wavelengths can do intetesting things in certain mediums including wavelengths you normally cant see.

The specral change must have been on the older sightings. Ive only ever seen on the many occasions one dominant color. For these types of craft ive only seen a scintillating reddish orange. Sometimes youll see a trace of yellow or even green. But the dominant color is reddish orange.

NCA no probs matey and if you've not seen it already there's also a few (very) early reports described in the vid below.

Could be nothing but in one 1909 newspaper report a resident of New Mexico was grazing his sheep on the plain when he suddenly felt the ground shake and heard a voice of unknown origin telling him to 'look up' - he then witnessed 'a dark round cloud full of stars' which came straight towards him, passed over his head and travelled to the East.

Also some pretty darn intriguing old Aborigine accounts briefly covered at 22:00 and discussed in dream time context at Zazz's thread here

Say Karl...or anybody else...

Do you think that the father of the hydrogen bomb --- Edward Teller --- was not forthright enough in describing the true validity of some U.F.O. reports during Project Blue Book?

Or did he side on the support of total secrecy about these ET flying machines, due to the possible war implications of such magnificent crafts?
