It's hard to boil down the numerous UFO reports to just five. I cover most of these in my 1997 book Alien Agenda. But I guess I would mention the
No. 1 is the Aurora spaceship crash of 1897 because this was well documented by stories in Texas newspapers and it occurred six years before the
Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk so there was nothing man-made in the air thus negating the argument that it was just a misidentified aircraft or
satellite. I consider this one the proverbial "smoking gun" of the UFO issue.
No. 2 would of course be the Roswell crash of 1947 mainly because so much has been written about it. Roswell boils down to either one believes
government pronouncements, based on little or nothing and ever changing, that nothing unusual crashed (a flying saucer, a weather balloon, a Mogul
balloon and crash dummies) or one believes more than 600 individuals on the public record telling of a crashed disc and small bodies recovered.
No. 3 could be the account of a good journalist named Ezekiel who wrote of his experiences with a flying, fiery circular craft (a wheel) which he
described as a "vision of God." he then goes into great detail describing the features of the "vision of God" and later in his book, he tells of
being taken into the sky and flown to a mountaintop city. While touring this city, Ezekiel asked what was in a certain building and he said he was
told that was where they kept the "vision of God." To me it is obvious that Ezkiel was talking about a real object and not just something visionary
like a dream or hallucination.
No. 4 would be the Bentwaters case of 1980 in England, again because there is such a wealth of information about this one, including radar contacts,
written military reports and even a tape recording made by the base commander as they pursued a craft through the woods. I also have met some of the
participants in this event and I can assure you they are not all concocting some story.
No. 5 is the famous Betty and Barney Hill abduction case of 1961. This case also was well documented and even made into a book and movie. One
compelling point of this story was that under hypnosis Betty Hill drew a star map based on what she claimed to have seen inside the UFO. Some time
later, it was found that her map perfectly matched a previously unstudied area of space.
Keep watching the skies because for all the misidentified aircraft and hoaxes, there's something up there that is not us.
