Video: End the UFO/ET Disclosure nonsense

Top 10 UFO Sightings of Modern Times  

1. Kenneth Arnold, 1947

In many ways, this sighting is the one that started them all. It certainly was not the first sighting of something odd in the sky, but this particular sighting by private pilot Kenneth Arnold helped define how the public viewed the UFO phenomenon. Arnold helped to coin the phrase “flying saucer” when he observed that the objects he saw streaking through the sky moved like saucers skipping across the water. The press ran with it and the term “flying saucer” became part of the American lexicon.

2. Roswell, 1947

Indeed, 1947 was a watershed year for the UFO phenomenon. What Kenneth Arnold started in June of 1947 was eclipsed by events that unfolded during the first month of July. A UFO reportedly crashed near a ranch in Roswell, New Mexico. At first, the U.S. Army Air Force confirmed that a UFO had crashed and newspapers quickly spread the amazing news. The military then changed their story, claiming that it was actually debris from a weather balloon that fell that day in Roswell. Roswell is considered by most to be the single most well-known UFO incident in history.

3. Barney and Betty Hill, 1961

Returning from a trip to Canada, Barney and Betty Hill were traveling through New Hampshire when they spotted a strange light in the sky. Not far from the town of Woodstock, they decided to stop their car to get a better look at it. What happened next was not clear to the Hills at the time, but further investigation indicated that they may have been abducted by a UFO and were the subject of various tests performed by the occupants of the strange craft. Under hypnosis, both of them related a similar tale of being taken aboard the UFO and examined by “typical” grey aliens that have been reported by other alleged abductees.

4. The Kecksburg Incident, Pennsylvania, 1965

This incident holds a prominent place among the most talked-about UFO incidents in history, generating almost as much interest among enthusiasts as the Roswell incident. On December 5, 1965, a fireball or meteor-like object smashed into the ground in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. After state police were called to the scene to investigate, the military was soon alerted and responded to Kecksburg to take control of the situation. While the Air Force dismissed the whole thing as a meteor, other witnesses who reportedly arrived at the scene of the impact before police reported seeing a acorn- shaped object about 12 feet in height. There were also reports that a flat-bed truck was seen leaving the area with an object onboard that was covered with a tarp. Many believed that object was a UFO that was taken away by the military.

5. Iranian UFO Chase, 1976

After receiving reports of multiple strange craft above the Tehran, the Iranian Air Force launched a U.S.-made F-4 fighter jet to investigate. As the pilot steered his aircraft in the direction of the UFO, he began to experience numerous problems with the aircraft’s electronics and communications systems. The pilot changed course and all of the aircraft’s systems returned to normal. At this time, a second F-4 was launched to aid in the investigation. After the second F-4 was able to maneuver its way close to the UFO, the pilot could make out some detail of the craft which reportedly featured multi- colored flashing lights. When a smaller UFO was released from the craft, the pilot became concerned for his safety and armed his weapons system in preparation of launching an air-to-air missile at the UFO. The F-4’s weapons and communications systems mysteriously failed at that point and the pilot was forced to head back to base.

6. Rendlesham Forest, UFO Landing, 1980

After being buzzed by strange craft for a number of nights during December, 1980, the jointly- operated U.S.-U.K. military air bases at Bentwaters and Woodbridge in the U.K. were on alert. On December 27th, the strange craft came in for an encounter that was definitely more up-close-and- personal. Military personnel were dispatched to the Rendlesham forest after hearing reports of strange lights in the area. The security patrols were shocked to find a saucer-shaped craft hovering a short distance off the ground with “typical” grey aliens outside the craft who appeared to be working on it. Those brave enough to approach the craft reportedly experienced strange effect such as time displacement, “reality bending” phenomena and bizarre atmospheric anomalies.

7. Hudson Valley, New York Sightings, 1981

What made the Hudson Valley sightings remarkable was the sheer number of people who came forward claiming that they had seen UFOs during that time. Instead of the more typical “flying saucer” sightings, the Hudson Valley sightings showcased a relative newcomer to the UFO scene at the time: The triangle-shaped UFO. Reports indicated that these craft operated while making no sound whatsoever. Some of the flying triangles were reportedly so large that they were compared to a “floating city,” and one incident, even prompted dozens of motorists to pull to the side of the road to gaze in astonishment at the massive craft.

8. Japan Air Lines, Flight 1628, 1986

To dismiss this incident as a natural phenomenon or weather-related event, one would have to believe that Captain Kenju Terauchi and his flight crew had lost their minds. On a flight originating in Paris and bound for Tokyo, the crew of the Boeing 747 cargo carrier were accompanied by more than one UFO as it transited the skies over Alaska. For almost an hour, the UFOs flew alongside the 747 and darted about as if gravity had no effect on them whatsoever. The crew contacted air traffic controllers who were not able to confirm the presence of the objects on radar. Captain Terauchi is about as qualified and credible as a witness could be, having served as a fighter pilot and logged more than 10,000 hours in flight.

9. Belgian Triangles, 1989

It became obvious fairly quickly that triangle-shaped UFOs were not exclusive to the United States. Similar to the Hudson Valley Sightings, the sightings in Belgium featured multiple reports of triangle-shaped craft operating silently in the skies. Reports were even made by police, and at least one sighting prompted the military to launch two U.S.-made F-16 Fighter jets in an attempt to intercept the craft. The objects were also confirmed by radar operators and were captured on film by some alert residents during April of 1990.

10. The Phoenix Lights, 1997

Something happened in the skies over Phoenix, Arizona on the night of March 13, 1997, although there remains much disagreement about what it actually was. What appeared to be an enormous craft was seen silently gliding over the area and was observed by hundreds of witnesses. Estimates suggested that massive craft may have been a mile in length. Numerous videos and photos of the strange lights surfaced, but the craft itself was extremely difficult to see, although some witnesses reported that it blocked out all of the stars in the sky as it passed above them. One group of witnesses even described rows of windows on the craft with the silhouettes of occupants visible inside. The military explained the event by stating that the lights were simply flares that were dropped by warplanes conducting exercises in the area -- a claim dismissed by the majority of those who actually witnessed it.

Springfield Vermont Area UFO Sightings

On a summer evening in 1966, around midnight, a UFO was spotted above the village of North Springfield. Two Springfield Police Officers observed it moving in a westerly direction. They followed the object in their police cruiser. It wasn't flying as fast as an airplane, allowing them to keep up with it. They managed to stay with it for a few miles on Rt 10 until they reached the end of it at the junction of Rt. 103 in Gassetts. The object continued on, westward, soon disappearing from sight behind a hill. This sighting made headlines in area newspapers.

A similar sighting but in broad daylight happened a few months later in Rockingham. This one made news all around the world because it was captured on film. Young teenagers Danny Gray and Ricky Sharp were on their way to photograph the Gageville covered bridge when they spotted a doughnut shaped object hovering nearby. The object was noiseless, black and white, and had a "shiny coil on its dome." It appeared to be 25 feet in diameter. Ricky had the presence of mind to snap six pictures before the object zoomed straight up and out of sight. The boys told their parents and friends, but no one believed them. However, Tony Redington of The Connecticut Valley Times-Reporter listened to their story and agreed to develop the film, which soon led to publishing them in his newspaper. Then UPI picked up the story.

Below are a few more local sightings that have been reported over the years...

May 31, 1953 Springfield VT sighting, but not reported until 2015: In early evening at dusk my mother and i were in the yard of our farm when we noticed a very long oblong aerial craft moving slowing toward terrain rising on the hill adjacent to the farm. it was completely silent, oblong cigar shaped, with five large lighted windows along the side. i did not see any occupants. it appeared to be headed for a collision with part of the hill. it did not collide, but disappeared behind the hill. on the other side of the hill is a numbered route following a river. i have never heard of anyone else who saw the craft; my mother swore me to secrecy because at that time people were ridiculed for seeing/reporting/believing such things as alien craft. however, i know what i saw - and she is no longer able to stop me from speaking out. i did think, at first, that it was a craft which had lost its engines, hence the silence, but now realize that was not the case.

4/12/2017 - Springfield, VT: It was 11:30, I was walking my dog and I looked up and there was a sphere slowly moving across the sky makeing it's way towards Windsor. It zig zagged and zipped towards Windsor, VT, my dog reacted to this event with barking and shaking. My dog doesn't scare easy it was his reaction tbat frightened me the most.

11/16/2012 - Springfield, VT: At about 11 pm at night, I went outside to see a meteor shower that was supposed to be happening (Leonid Meteor Shower). I sat on my porch, looking at the stars, when I noticed a blinking star. I looked closely and it was blinking red and blue, very bright in color. Then I noticed that it was moving all over the sky, right, left, up, down. I ran inside to get a blanket, and ran back out and it was still there. It would get closer at times, and it would occasionally stop and hover. I could see that it could be a spear shape, with the light in the center and coming from the center there were long lines, as if connecting on the outer rim. I wasn't sure what I was seeing, and kept watching it for an hour, going around the sky, getting closer then further away. When I did get to see it, it looked like some sort of craft, honestly. I don't know how to describe it. It was dark and I could only see so much. I did see a plane fly by and pass by it. I waited for somet! hing to happen, but it continued for an hour before I decided I was freezing and had to go inside. All I know is that I have never seen anything like it before.

2/2/1995 - Springfield, VT: I was driving on rt 11 west and as I came around a corner over a beaver pond was this oval shaped very bright, with small square windows and bottom was like opaque. I was scared and tried to turn my car around but I could not, I tried to go by it fast but as I pushed down on the gas pedal I could not go faster, I remember seeing a white older truck pulled over on the side of the road. I remember the light seeming to get brighter The next thing I remember was driving into my dooryard, my husband meet me at the door and asked where Had I been it was 1:30AM in the morning and I had started home from Springfield at around 11 pm. The next morning while showering I noticed a small black cylinder shaped about maybe all most an inch long in my leg, it did not hurt. I had that black thing in my leg for about four years then it disappeared. My mother has also had several experiences.

08/27/2017 - Springfield, VT: My wife and i were sleeping in our bedroom. earlier in the day we saw a blue light flash through the sky. we ended waking up in our living room on a pull out couch with marks on our body and my wife has an 8 on her side that is black and blue. beforehand it felt like we were being watched. before i fell asleep i saw a light flash which is the last thing i remember.

To report a UFO sighting

Project Blue Book was one of a series of systematic studies of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) conducted by the United States Air Force. It started in 1952 but ceased operations in January 1970. By the time Project Blue Book ended, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena (clouds, stars, etc.) or conventional aircraft. A small percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained, even after stringent analysis. The UFO reports were archived and are available under the Freedom of Information Act, but names and other personal information of all witnesses have been redacted.

Now private investigative organizations handle sighting reports.  The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) at www.mufon.com/report-a-ufo.html and The National UFO Reporting Center at www.ufocenter.com/reportform.html.
