Hi Nick. I'm just going to re-post my questions here for you(which I think some others may be interested in knowing). If you get around to answering, that's great. Otherwise, thanks a lot for all your answers thus far

I'm sorry my post may be a little long, and it contains a few questions - but they are all mostly inter-related.

I would like to ask you about the Orange Orb phenomenon. There are many sightings of these orbs all around the world at a seemingly constant rate - (ruling out the mundane observations that fit the description of lanterns etc).

I have my own personal sighting to share with you.

"I was on the summit of a range of mountains in my town. I was there with my friend. We were sitting in the car at about 8 or 830pm. There were no clouds in sight. Friend was looking up at the stars and asks me, "Whats that?". It took me about 5 seconds to get in position to see what they saw.

What I saw was an intense orb of orange light. There was no sound, and the light refraction seemed static... as in, it wasn't a typical light that you see twinkling in the atmosphere. it just gave the impression of being in the upper atmosphere or even above it/in space. It didn't move in a straight line either, it moved like it was an insect in the wind, slight variations in its course(I later wondered if it was maneuvering around space debris or simply eye muscles attempting to focus, it seemed like there was miniscule movement). It traveled across at least half of the sky, and when it had reached about halfway, it suddenly accelerated, and arced up/away from us, in two distinctly noticeable bounds, and disappeared into the background of space within less then a second. The acceleration was mind boggling. It's trajectory was almost directly away from us, slightly angled so that we had some depth perception regarding it's movement, it really gave the impression that it went the bleakness of space very far away. It also became smaller as it sped off, reinforcing that impression of it actually traveling far away, as opposed to being an event taking place solely in the upper atmosphere. As soon as we observed it do this, we became very verbal, shouting, "What the f**k was that?!", over and over... I immediately turned on the car and left, we both felt fear."

Now I am wondering

How many encounters have you read about regarding orange orbs - and what, if any, other types of phenomena have been associated with these orbs (e.g saucer becomes an orb, or abductions happening at same time as orb sightings)

I was also wondering what your thoughts were on Stanley Fulham, the ex-NORAD Officer who died late 2010. He predicted a mass alien sighting around the world. I did not pay any attention to this - but on the day he said it would happen, my friend had just arrived to my house by walking, and he was excitedly shouting my name, to come and look at something. I got to the road and we observed 7 Orange Orbs silently traversing the sky in formation and slowly drift away/up and out of sight. There were also supposed sightings in other cities around the world - New York for example. (some videos on youtube are still up showing this). Also, my friend had no idea about the upcoming sighting, so he was merely pointing out something to me that he thought was extra-ordinary.

Lastly, Since you have seen information that tells of UFOS behaving in ways that seem to defy physics - I noted that you said there's no evidence of the phenomenon being extra-terrestrial. I had the thought that if these craft are real - and they do travel at speeds that seem impossible to us, if they were man-made, and it only took us a fairly short time to discover this technology - would not the chances of extra-terrestrials being responsible for a portion of these sightings (granted that mankind actually has come into possession of similar craft)be almost inevitable? (following the logic that there is probably other sentient life somewhere else in the galaxy and if it is so easy for us to create such technology, then surely others have discovered it and visited other planets).

Thank you for your time if you end up answering my questions Nick. I could probably ask some more but there's a word limit so these will do for now!

Hello and welcome Mr Pope. I hope you have many unusual experiences you could share with us. I have one small question that has been bothering me for a long time now and was hoping you could shed some light on the matter. Is Elvis still alive?

Hi there Nick,

I want to start off by saying that I mean no personal offense to you or your job. This is not being made as a personal attack but more as a challenge.

I want to say that from my personal perspective, nothing that you have said or done yet have proven or dis-proven anything in regards to the UFO phenomenon. It has just been more of the same that we have seen from everyone else who claims to have worked with UFO phenomenon or government operations.

To me you come across as a British Mulder, possibly being played by someone else. I could be wrong but this is the impression that I have gotten. I challenge you to step up your game.

What we need is people like you who hold or have held positions such as you to help the world understand this phenomenon to bring to light, in way that Snowden did for the NSA spying situation. Gather the collective minds do something extraordinary.

We all really knew the NSA was spying and this was going on for years, even the blind people kind of know something but are too busy with their lives and ignorance to think about questioning anything.

The same goes with UFO's people know something is up.

Knowledge has more power shared and we need to know and strip the power from the military industrial complex.

My point being is that if what you are saying is true then it needs to be backed up and proven and we need to know.

Given that the answers we really want are unavailable due to the oath Mr. Pope took as a member of the MoD, I think it can be expected that a lot of his responses will skirt around the stuff we are getting at, whether we are coy with our questions or not.

I think you hit the issue right on the nose.

Frustrating but very telling.

Perhaps we can learn more from what Mr. Pope did not say rather than what he did??

When I have time I will List all he Questions Mr. Pope did not have time to answer... I will analyse this data and see if there are any correlations.

I think that's an excellent plan.

I don't greatly fault Mr Pope for keeping fairly strictly to his values and priorities. And, I think he has to understand our frustration.

By the same token, I greatly applaud the Generals and others from officialdom who APPEAR to have risked a lot to disclose more nitty gritty stuff.

However, I think we are wise to hold most stuff in this topic area loosely.

There's tons of disinformation and hidden agendas . . . strategies, manipulations, projects we can scarcely guess at.

Lots of things are not as they appear.

It's WORSE than a hall of mirrors in Alice's rabbit hole managed by the Wizard of Oz as a subset of The Matrix.

Probably a list of GRAND DECEPTIONS is involved.

Nevertheless, I think we do well to ferret out whatever puzzle pieces we can.

I energetically applaud your efforts to list and analyze the NOT ANSWERED questions. If I can be of any analytical help, please let me know.

Hello and welcome *waves*

My question would be .. would a publicly funded radar station that investigates anomalous airborne objects exclusively and investigate from there 'there' being the radar station as base of operations?

Yes, that's a good idea. I hope you get time to work on it soon, I guess since I'm one of those who got no reply I'd be especially interested.

Hello and welcome to Nick Pope!

I am not optimistic that any major government will ever really, fully disclose all they know about aliens and UFOs but they may acknowledge them if or when their hand is somehow forced -- such as in the face of undeniable evidence.

Did you ever perceive that the disclosure movement was taken seriously by the major governments and that it caused them any worry, that goes beyond the annoyance that I'm sure FOIA requests have always been? Do you know of any contingency plans they might have in case of events like ufo crashes or alien attacks, etc.?

hi nick just wanted to pop in say hello as i have read some of your statements since joining ats,so without further ado "hello nick".
anyway with that out the way,you do not fool me ,you will always be at the beck an call of our so called goverment,as the saying goes once a company man always a company man,gees the uk goverment does not even listen to its citizens anymore we didnt vote this geek cameron in we voted none of them ,so they made up a new goverment,they did not give us a choice or a re- vote to see, who we the people wanted to lead. that sir is a dictatorship in my opinion.
and i also believe that you are a disinfo agent still being paid in secret of course by the british intelligence or whatever name they go by ,i do have a question though i wondered if you could answer .

dr.ernst Stuhlinger who was dr.wernher von brauns mentor was convinced that ion propulsion in space was possible

anyway a ion engine was demonstrated on Sept. 27, 1961, at research labororities in malibu,this was in a vacuum so that was proof of a working ion engine in 1961 ,nasa then moved stuhlinger and von braun to work elsewhere in conventional rocketsystems. so my question if nasa had a working ion propulsion system in 1961
how far into space are they really in your opinion????????
and a wildcard question,does the uk have any electrogravetic aeroplanes that can reach space then switch to ion propulsion ?????????

Hello Mr Pope....

Would you ever consider the possibility that your function knowingly or unknowingly ... was to maintain a certain level of confusion and uncertainty ?

Given that you would never be given clearance to Defence Technical Research and Evaluation Establishments or Documents, your ability to research experimental and Covert operational data was neutered from inception

What technical qualifications do you hold in the fields of Plasma's/Microwaves/Scalar physics/Holography/Genetics/Aerodynamics/Electro-Magneto Biology and many other fields covered by the Military Scientific Community ?

What information were you given regarding Soviet technical achievements in the above fields ?

What information were you given regarding US technical achievements in the above fields ?

What information were you given regarding WW2 ?

Speaking hypothetically, If there is a UFO cover-up in the sense that people here tend to mean, the reasons are unlikely to have anything to do with the usual clichés about panic in the streets, undermining religion or collapsing the world economy. A more likely reason is technology acquisition: the nation that first acquires and masters extraterrestrial technology (if it exists) is likely to be the dominant force on this planet for the foreseeable future, politically, militarily and economically. Sufficiently high stakes to justify a little secrecy, I would suggest.

Indeed a very valid point.
But all your answers tend to suggest that no nations have made ant contact with the ET's

Thank you, Kind Sir! You've been a "Breath of Fresh Air" and we can only imagine the difficulty and energy expended in trying to compose meaningful, succinct answers to such a plethora of (sometimes inane) inquiries!

We hope to see you back among us again sometime and wish you well in your continuing worthwhile endeavors moving forward.

Hello again, Mr Pope. I would also like to re-post my question here as I'm very much interested in knowing the answer. Whether or not it can be answered, thanks a lot for the answers, Mr Pope! Although a lot of the answers have been speculated in the past (e.g. that governments investigate UFOs to get their tech), it's different when someone who 'has been on the inside' says it. The questions about your opinions were very interesting and insightful as well, not to mention the questions about the operations of the MoD!.

My question was this:

Dear Mr Pope,

Thank you so much for taking your time to answer our questions. All of the answers have been very interesting so far. May I ask a question about us?

What is your opinion on the 'alternative' (or, like most would prefer to call it, 'nutjob') community? How about the amateur ufology community: believer, sceptic, neutral? Thanks.

Thanks again for answering our questions!

Of course, we do have an issue now in so much as Nick or persons behind Nick are aware of the plan and thus may come back and answer the sensitive questions with falsehoods and half truths... So I will take the data as of this point and discard any further answers. Then re analyse the questions Nick decided to answer after this point.

If I need assistance in assessing the data I will certainly let you know.

I think Mr. Pope has made it clear that there are not agendas so much as security issues. The nations to which such information belongs believe that the information could be compromise their security if released to the public. That's how I understand it, anyway.

I can bet 99% of UFO hype is coming from paid shills. It is not difficult to fabricate "evidence" for a resourceful entity.

It is helpful to the NWO to keep people confused and distracted. Even bright minds can be confused by clever tactics.

There are many UFO cases on the Internet that are presented beautifully, like a beautiful girl ready to seduce.

The distrust of scientific progress (which is genuine, and is out of effort by terrestrial humans) leads many to embrace UFO phenomenon. To the NWO, it give a feeling on invincibility as if supported by 'very technically advanced aliens".

The highlight of our times is that the falsehood wins and truth is doubted, almost every time.

Hello Mr. Pope Welcome to ATS! Question: Were you ever told by your Bosses like The Queen or parliament to curtail your discussion on UFOs?
Thank you!

I'm aware of Ingo Swann and his work, but I haven't yet read his book, "Penetration".

I read every Nick Pope post from 8/27 this morning and I was going to make a Wordle from it to prove this point, but I cannot for some reason so you will have to do it yourself, but I have this to say - on this date, Mr Pope has provided some interesting responses to questions, but nothing I would call an "answer" to a question.

In fact, Mr pope's responses on this date are largely trite and a bit on the arrogant side. He, for example, schools people about their thinking, their discernment or lack of. He makes snarks about wavy-gravy ufologists and sacred cows, but provides nothing we don't already have. Lot's of "I don't recall" and poo-pooing of things.

It has to just be me reading this wrong. I mean, why would he come on here unless he wanted to talk. I mean, really talk?

Otherwise, why?

I would like to be wrong. maybe someone saw some actual, you know, information that I missed?
