Very interesting thread, many thanks OP..

Anthony Bragalia's newly found high-quality Wanaque image (probably the original of one of those already published by Dell, bottom right) seems to me one of the most interesting possible UAP pics ever taken. And certainly the best of a 'solid' light beam.

Bragalia's piece:

It would be good to have a high-quality study of Bragalia's pic.

Thanks for the link, it's a very interesting case that deserves lots of attention.
Someone tried to debunk it but I don't buy that:

She claimed she was there and saw the whole thing. They strung fishing line across the reservoir, taped some cellophane to a straw and simply passed the unit back and forth across the lake. It would light up whenever a car's headlights hit it (there is a winding road that goes completely around the reservoir). When the authorities started to show up, they just cut the line and it all fell invisibly into the water.

The best thing about this has to be the credible witnesses. Oh how I love it when cops and government officials come forth.

Oh and star and flag for you. Thanks for sharing man.

Where are the debunkers when you need them?
Come on, it can't be that hard?

Anyone else?

I always find it
when people call cops (or govt officials) "credible witness" in regards to UFOs....but on any other thread, cops are idiots, liars, criminals, etc etc.

They are only credible if they report seeing a UFO
funny stuff.

Interesting to look at Bragalia's pic, which I've now embedded above, in the light of the testimony of Wanaque Reservoir Police Chief John Cassazza to journalist and amateur astronomer LLoyd Mallan about what Cassazza saw on the night of January 11, 1966 :

"And the strangest part of
it was that there was no noise attached to this object. None whatsoever. It was absolutely
silent. A silent light." "What color was this light?" I wanted to know. "It was a bright white
light. As I said: just like on a locomotive. It was funnel-shaped. It seemed to come out of
some object, like a funnel. In other words, it spread out as if it were focused through a
telescope. It was narrow at one end in the sky and spread out into a very wide beam as it
approached our upper gate house at the dam."
"In other words," I said, "this wasn't just a flat light? It had a shape."
He nodded. "Just like a funnel." "Sort of like an upside down funnel?" I asked. He nodded
again, this time with vigor. "That's just exactly what it looked like."

The Wanaque photo deserves a very through analysis. In the light of Ellen Crystall's remarkable photos published in her Silent Invasion, and Professor Meessen's analysis of her photos and the Belgian Petit Rechain colour slide (so far only in French, unfortunately), I think we should seriously consider the possibility that the Wanaque photo captured UV emissions from the putative UAP, and the possible plasma surrounding it.

The anonymity of the photo is quite understandable, given reports that eyewitnesses and photographers were threatened by Men in Black. The stakes could not have been higher at the time. The US Air Force was intent on closing down Blue Book, and a mass sighting, with photos and testimony by a Police Chief and a Mayor, could have made this impossible.

In my honest opinion this sounds like a search.............. by a helicopter,
The next night too.
Helicopter flying a search pattern.
I can off a theory, that this was an army training exercise.
And the UFO was an army helicopter, training in part of
that exercise.

It is a more likely theory than a UFO.

Bu thanks for posting

My dear fellow atsers ain't gonna like it, but once again it looks like it's a typical bell shaped object, also known as a Haunebu

BTW, could it be that the ice posed a threat for the dam and the UFO saved the dam by puncturing it to relief the pressure?

Adamski is a a fraud and everything from his ramblings are fraudulent.
His pictures of ufo's don't even look remotely real.

Maybe you should give that thread a second look, most of them aren't from Adamski.
And these are just a few of them.

Actually I do partly agree with you. The whole, cops are idiots and liars in some situations but when it comes to UFO's they are deemed credible.

The reason I like it when cops or people from the government come forth is the amount of information they give to the case and the detail. That's why I think they're more some cases.

from place to placeand a times shooting down beams of light.Reservoir guards vividly
recalllater going out on the ice and finding thawed placeswhere the object had
been seen hovering. Mayor Wolfe, some Councilmen, Dam guards and some of the
young teen-age children of the Councilmen were up there on top.
They declared: “Up on the Dam when this object came over and was over the ice, and
put out a flash of light (light beam), and put holes in the ice, he beams of light seemed
to put holes in the ice”

Freespirit, great post mate
below is some more info about the sightings from Dr Michael Swords:

WANAQUE 1966, part one: microcosm of UFOlogy

When you dive into Wanaque, you find that you're not dealing with one "UFO" case but many. For purposes of sanity, it's convenient [though mildly inaccurate] to consider the Wanaque cases to be mainly composed of two clusters of incidents in 1966, one in mid-January and the other almost exactly nine months later in October. In this first swipe at the phenomenon, I'm going to look only at the January incidents.

The second thing that strikes you [very favorably] is that the January cluster has a boatload of witnesses, lots of whom are "in plain sight", and many of whom are policemen. So... good start.

The third thing is that no REALLY good investigation seems to have been made. Because of that, I'm going to begin by saying what the newspapers got from the witnesses and put in their stories. The cast-of-characters above figures prominently in this, and several of them in the October events as well.

Although they're just human beings and subject to the same misperceptions as everybody else I'd say police officers do make pretty credible UFO witnesses (probably the most credible) and there are also quite a number of cases out there where separately located police officers have all submitted similar UFO reports or object descriptions - this article also makes some pretty good points about the credibility and reliability of officers 'highly trained and experienced in reporting what they see' and Dr Hynek also mentions in a 1975 FBI Bulletin here that 'experience definitely shows that the best reports, those with the greatest information content, come from technically trained, professional people, especially law enforcement personnel”

Part 2.

WANAQUE 1966: part two.

The Air Force was in top form throughout. They didn't even investigate the case formally as far as I can tell. This did not stop various representatives from voicing their theories that the BOL sightings were planets seen under odd atmospheric situations [maybe some were but that three-arc passage on January 11th... Sheesh!], or helicopters, which didn't exist with strobe beams [which turned out also not to exist], to ECHO satellite spottings, which is so preposterous as to make one wish that you could make citizen arrests on military people for violations of brain function. Yep, the good ol' Air Force was in its prime.

this part below is taken from the Lloyd Mallen well - done interview and blog info site :
"What Happened At Wanaque, N.J.? (An Objective Look At UFOs) "
I quote from Researcher Mallen : (RM) : "Getting back to the position of the obj when you first saw it," I said, "how did it compare with the antenna tower position? Could you get any estimate of its altitude or speed?"

"I don't know about altitude," Sergeant Gordon told me, "but I've been judging speed for 12 years now as a police officer, you know, & I would say it was moving no more than 20 miles an hour. It moved steadily. No deviations, whatsoever. No erratic turns or anything like that."

(RM) comments : This statement I should point out, contradicts the actions of the UFO as sgt Thompson of the W.Reservoir Police later saw them & reported them to me.

[ Derrufo interrupts : the obj was out of its operational area-- which did indeed turn out to be the Waneque Reservoir area...the slow, hover or steady movements Sgt.B. Gordon saw was due to obj making it's turn around procedures,AWAY from the W. Reservoir by 3 miles... or getting new data instructions or transmitting data before proceeding with another pass over W. Reservoir-its mission recon target. Sgt B.Thompson saw the actual ufo in its operational function to relay coordinates to an orbiting platform for future vessels coming to get in from the atmosphere, what angle what direction to get to possible underwater bases in the Atlantic Ocean. ]
to ATS i am always Late to the Party here but i have kept a close eye on the ufo event 1966, and by all means it seems being a witness to future events as we are now in 2013 -- a span of 47 years should make us more concerned than ever about ufos being seen along the eastern northern shores of the USA and out in the A. Ocean. Nothing on earth in 1966 makes 3 or 4 bright flashes as the patrolman said--"like a huge Light bulb"
this was a recon mission with an orbital platform far above that was sending instructions to the ufo at the Reservoir...running over the various coordinates to make it easy for future ships to "ride the beams" if you will of alien data this device ( obj ) was recording on advanced tech instruments...wake up-- the sep 2007 was part of this Landfall or sea Landing of these Lifeforms...its no alien ufo cover up by the USAF--the units that won many battles in the air in wars, these guys dont make mistakes....this is a coordinated Lock Out of info by the People of what is happening by the US Govt simply because they decide we cannot handle the NEW
Reality of alien intervention to Earth ? what kind of constitutional framework is there for telling us NOTHING of plans of ET to occupy planet Earth ? There is none--thus the US govt in its various stealth capacity with agencies of CIA etc are mis-using the national security statutes in which info to protect the USA from other aggressor nations is cast in top secret files...away from us-- the People forever....BUT there is no authority in the US Laws for dealing with ET info disclosure to the American People. Thus i think if you can get all the info on the W R ufo event and couple it with Roswell and how the Army//CIA acted ( CIA formed same year as Roswell crash) i think you will know without any doubt that the W R object event in 1966 was a recon Alien Probe to Light the way for future fleets with mass. with massive Loads to come in to Earth safely...yes ride the beams as it were-- of that probe's complex mission-- it ran different positional flights to gain info on the data needed by its civilization's ran the missions in diff directions. If orbital platform wanted confirmed data-- the probe ran the same flight patterns again and again...the evidence for this is surely the oddness of the UFOs landing at Normandy Beach sep 2007 along New Jersey coastline...the one tall casino bldg has a gray ball sphere atop it...its not sure the purpose-- of course we know it reads out illuminated words but it is the exact shape and color of some ufos spotted and filmed....even in NASA of which i myself discovered after 2 weeks of constant review of NASA the mid 1990s...that discovery was put on the Roswell movie starring dwight yoakum and martin sheen - the nasa film is shown in the beginning of the work...done to protect the american people. Tje ufo cover up people are not only criminals but in large part due to a public intent on fun and money-- have succeeded in keeping this ufo case a secret by sheer neglect -- using the news sites of all of USA --placing cia agents in key positions--to make sure the people never see one word of recall of this event...ever.
