Top 10 Unexplained UFO Sightings &
The Universe is defined as everything that physically exists, including
all forms of matter, energy, and momentum.A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally
bound system that consists of starsand stellar remnants. Over 100 billion galaxies
exist in the observable universe.Earth exists in the Milky Way galaxy. Since the 1930’s
a high majority of strange and unusual phenomenon have been reported in earth’s skies. Thousands
of UFO sightings have occurred in modern history, including cases of alleged alien abduction. It has been
hypothesized that the invention of the atom bomb has inspired interest from other life forms. This list
documents unique claims and stories of alien encounters.
10. Gulf Breeze,
The small town
of Gulf Breeze, Florida has been the site of numerous UFO sightings.The most concentrated period
of encounters was between November 1987 and May 1988 and were centered around Ed and Frances Walters.The Walters captured over 40 photographs of the unexplained objects and various scientists have conducted tests
and studied the pictures, claiming them to appear legitimate.The Walters also claim that the aliens attempted to abduct them and that Ed would get a humming noise in his head when they approached. They also report lost and unaccounted for time.Over the years, many people have attacked
the Walters and their credibility.The fact remains that Ed is a successful contractor and respected
member of society. Hundreds of other people in the Gulf Breeze area have reported the incidents.In
the three year period of time surrounding the initial sightings, over 200 different people came forward with videos
and photographs of the unexplained flying object.
9. 2004 Mexican
On March 5, 2004 the
Mexican military was conducting a routine air patrol searching for drug smugglers over Ciudad del Carmen, located in the eastern coastal state of Campeche.The reconnaissance aircraft was equipped with infrared radar instruments.Initially, a single
trace was identified by the crew, which they immediately investigated. With the plane's radar the
crew identified an object moving at incredible speeds. The UFO disappeared, only to return with another ten
aircraft, making eleven in total.The crew attempted to get closer to the objects, but simply could
not see them without radar or infrared. On May
13, 2004 Mexican journalist Jaime Maussan released his interview with Mexican Air Force pilots showing the infrared
video footage. Many scientists have studied the footage and are baffled by the trajectory of the flying objects.
Skeptics claim that the video shows that the UFOs were actually oil platform burn-off flares of the Cantarell oil
On the evening
of August 21, 1955, members of the Taylor family were on vacation visiting the Suttons on their Kentucky farm, which
was located near the small town of Kelly and the small city of Hopkinsville.A total of seven people
were sleeping in the farm house when strange noises began to propel from the forest line.The men
grabbed their guns and headed outside to explore the grounds.Suddenly, a creature emerged in front
of them.The creature is described as a luminous, three-and-a-half-foot-tall being with an oversized
head, pointed ears, glowing eyes, and hands with talons at their ends.It approached the men, so they
unloaded their weapons on it.The being was not harmed and it reportedly sounded as if the bullets
were hitting a metal drum.It ran away, but for the remainder the evening the families were terrorized
by a group of the creatures.
They were not physically intimidating, but they continued to peer into the windows of the house, pounded
on the roof, and were scaring the children. The men shot out the windows and fired their weapons at the creatures.
It was reported that their legs seemed to be atrophied and nearly useless, and they appeared to propel themselves
with a curious hip-swaying motion, steering with their arms. When falling from the roof of the house they would float, not fall, to the ground. The men eventually made a dash for town and gathered over
twenty police officers, but the creatures had disappeared. Both families were extremely traumatized by the
experience and a Kentucky newspaper published articles about the happening.The descriptions and drawing
of the creatures greatly resemble the accounts of 15 children and 3 school staff in Dyfed, West Wales, who observed
small silvery men with spiked ears' and helmets working around a UFO in 1977.
Dyatlov Pass Incident
In late January 1959 a group of experienced skiers and hikers set out on a voyage across the northern
Urals, which is near the Russian city of Ekaterinburg. Led by Igor Dyatlov, the goal of the expedition was to reach the mountain of Otorten. One evening the group set up camp on the slope of the mountain.As the group slept an event occurred and all the hikers were killed.The lifeless bodies
of all nine people were mysteriously found spread over a large area. Many abnormalities had occurred.
There was evidence that the group fled their tents in the middle of the night as they were ripped out from within.Four of the hikers were determined to have died from a force that could not have been inflicted by another human. They had chest and head trauma equivalent to a high speed car crash. The bodies had no external signs of injury.
Some were wearing each others clothes, one victim had no tongue, and large amounts of radioactive contamination
were found on their clothing. The Russian military investigated the incident and determined the cause to be “an unknown compelling force.”Many suggest alien involvement.
The relatives of the deceased claimed that the skin of the victims
had a strange orange tan and that they were completely grey-haired.Another group of hikers in
the vicinity reported strange orange spheres in the night sky towards the location of the massacre.In
fact, there was an outbreak of UFO reports by Soviet citizens during the period of February to March, 1959.
Some reports released claimed that scrap metal was scattered on the mountain side.Others claim the
incident is the result of a Soviet military test gone wrong.
5, 1975, 18-year-old Travis Walton was working on a logging crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona.
His team was heading home for the day, to the town of Snowflake, when they viewed a bright light over
an upcoming hill.As the men approached the light they saw a large silvery disc hovering above
a clearing and shining brightly.It was around 8 feet (2.4 m) high and 20 feet (6.1 m)
in diameter.The men stopped their vehicle and Walton jumped out and ran towards the light to gain
a closer view. As he ran towards the craft it began to make loud noises similar to a turbine and began to
wobble from side to side.The group would later testify that they witnessed a beam of blue-green light
emanate from the disc and strike Travis. He subsequently propelled into the air with his arms and legs sprawled
and outstretched. The men feared another attack, so they left the scene.After
a short time they returned, but Travis Walton was nowhere to be found. A man hunt and media circus ensued. The group of men who witnessed the events were accused and given
polygraph tests, which they all passed.Just before midnight on November 10, Grant Neff received a
phone call from Travis Walton claiming that he needed immediate help. Neff discovered Walton in a phone
booth and he was wearing the same clothing as five days earlier, had not shaven, and was extremely distraught.
Walton’s descriptions of the events he experienced were astonishing. He claimed
that the last thing he remembered was being hit by light and when he awoke, Travis said he was on a reclined bed.A bright light shone above him and the air was heavy and wet. He was in pain and had some trouble breathing,
but his first thought was that he was in a normal hospital.He was surrounded by three figures, each
wearing orange jumpsuits.The creatures were not human, but described as shorter than five feet, they
had bald heads, and no hair. Their heads were domed and very large.They had enormous brown eyes
with not much white in them.His descriptions were very similar to the so-called Greys, which are
creatures featured in many abduction accounts.
accounts while being in the UFO are extremely interesting and they include an experience with a tall human figure wearing
blue coveralls with a glassy helmet.Walton claims the man had larger eyes then a human and that
they were gold in color.He remembers being gassed and then waking up at a Heber, Arizona gas station.Many feel Walton’s accounts are incorrect and he has gained much criticism in his life.It
remains one of the most interesting and well documented cases of alien abduction.
A series of unusual
events took place in Belgium between November
and April of 1989.Over 2,000 people reported witnessing triangular shaped UFO’s
in various areas of the country. The objects have been labeled black triangles, which are a class of UFO’s
common in many international sightings, one of the most famous being over St. Petersburg, Russia, on February 19, 1997.The crafts are described by many observers as having some sort of "running lights," either bright white
lights or pulsing colored lights. These lights usually appear at each corner of the triangle. Sometimes a red pulsating
light is seen in the center of the aircraft.
Black triangles remain shrouded in mystery.On
many different occasions Belgian officials tracked the unknown objects on radar.The objects were always in triangular form and changed colors between red, green, and yellow. F16’s attempted to follow the crafts
and even managed to obtain radar lock for a few seconds.The first time the F16 managed to lock radar
the UFO accelerated from 150 mph to over 1,100 mph while changing altitude from 9,000 ft to 5,000 ft, then up to
11,000 ft before descending to almost ground level. It was the first descent of more than 3,000 feet taking less
than two seconds.The incidents remain unexplained.
On the evening
of December 29, 1980, Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum and Colby Landrum were driving
home to Dayton, Texas in Cash's Oldsmobile Cutlass. While driving on an isolated two-lane road the group spotted
a large light above the trees.As the trio approached they witnessed a huge diamond-shaped object,
which hovered at treetop level. The object's base was expelling flame and emitting significant heat.It was described as an intensely bright and a dull metallic silver upright diamond craft, the flame was keeping
the object air born.The witnesses proclaimed that the heat was strong enough to make the car’s
metal body painful to touch.At one point Landrum’s hand pressed into the softened vinyl of
the car, subsequently leaving a lasting imprint.
As with many UFO encounters and incidents, a government cover-up
is claimed to be involved with this case.As the group watched the UFO gradually gain altitude
they witnessed a squadron of 23 helicopters surround the object in tight formation.Dayton police
officer, Detective Lamar Walker, and his wife also claimed to have seen 12 Chinook-type helicopters near the scene
that night. Claims have been made that the helicopters were assisting a damaged UFO. After the incident the
group returned home and all suffered from nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, generalized weakness, a burning sensation in
their eyes, and feeling as though they'd suffered sunburns. Over the next few days, Cash's symptoms worsened,
with many large, painful blisters forming on her skin.She could not walk and had lost large patches
of skin and clumps of hair.
A radiologist who examined the group determined that they were suffering from secondary damage
to ionizing radiation, with an infrared or ultraviolet component as well.Eventually, Cash and Landrum
contacted their U.S. Senators, Lloyd Bentsen and John Tower, who suggested that the witnesses file a complaint with
the Bergstrom Air Force Base.They ended up suing the U.S. government for $20 million in medical bills
and damages.The case was dismissed in 1986, noting that the plaintiffs had not proved that the helicopters were associated with the U.S. government and that a large, diamond shaped aircraft did not exist in the
U.S. fleet.This is one of the few UFO cases to result in criminal court proceedings.It is also a Close Encounter of the Second Kind, due to its reported physical effects on the witnesses and
December of 1980 there was a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights and the alleged landing of an extraterrestrial
spacecraft in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England.The events began in the early morning of December
26 when a downed aircraft was reported near the East Gate of RAF Woodbridge.Upon investigation, an
unidentified object was reported, along with bizarre light patterns.First responders proclaimed the presence of a conical metallic object, suspended in a yellow mist, hovering over a clearing in the trees, with
a pulsating blue and red circle of light above. The men claim that the object seemed to
move away from them as they approached.They made the immediate claim that the UFO had landed and not crashed to earth. The next morning
servicemen returned to the site and found three small impressions in a triangular pattern were the aircraft had been,
as well as burn marks and broken branches on nearby trees.They took Geiger counter readings, which
confirmed that radiation levels were ten times the normal levels. The witnesses of the occurrence claim to have been debriefed, threatened, and ordered to sign documents that vowed silence, including one paper stating that the
UFO was a lighthouse.
The first piece of primary evidence of the event that was distributed to the public was the
"Halt memo."It was made available under the US Freedom of Information Act in 1983.It detailed the incident and included some eyewitness accounts.In 1984, a tape became available
that detailed Lt. Colonel Halt and his patrol as they were investigating the incident. The Rendlesham Forest
event is widely regarded as the most famous UFO sighting to have occurred in Britain.
13, 1997 a series of optical phenomenon occurred in the skies over the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada, and the Mexican
state of Sonora. Unidentified flying objects and various light formations scattered the skies. There
were two distinct events involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights, and a series of stationary lights
seen in the Phoenix area.The video and photographic evidence of the event have been studied
by many scientists.It is widely considered the best photographic evidence of a UFO.
The intensity of the lights appear to shift from very bright to dim, as each object moves it becomes indiscernible
to the camera.The governor
of Arizona, Fife Symington, witnessed the event and became convinced it was an unidentified object.After the incident the United States government released a statement claiming that the lights were test flares
dropped by a A- 10 Warthog.This explanation does not add up for educated viewers of the tapes
and has caused much speculation claiming a cover up.
One would logically
assume that if extraterrestrial beings existed in our universe that they would be more readily active in space.This has proven to be true, as many of the most vivid videos and UFO encounters have come from astronauts.Many have claimed that while in the undefined depths of outer space they witnessed unexplained lights and unnatural
phenomenon.I will examine some of the more famous cases and videos.
1972, the crew of the Apollo 16 moon mission set out to explore the surface of the moon.As they began
their return to earth the spacemen recorded a few seconds of video footage of a saucer-shaped object. NASA
has claimed that the object is a floodlight used in the spacewalk. The footage was leaked to the internet, along with
many other NASA videos.
In 1966 two astronauts
onboard the tiny Gemini IX spacecraft, Pete Conrad and Dick Gordon, noticed something strange outside one of the windows. The photos they took spawned a debate that continues to this day, exactly what did the astronauts witness.
STS-80 was a Space Shuttle mission flown by Space Shuttle Columbia in 1996.
It lasted 17 days and is the longest Space Shuttle mission in history. The objectives were to deploy two satellites and
successfully recovered them after they had performed their tasks.Two spacewalks were planned for
the mission, but were canceled at the last moment.The crew aboard this shuttle witnessed some of
the most baffling and intriguing UFO phenomenon ever recorded. Various unexplained lights and crafts surrounded
STS-48 was a Space Shuttle mission that launched on September 12, 1991, from Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
The orbiter was Space Shuttle Discovery.The mission was completed in 81 revolutions of the Earth and traveled 2.2 million miles. The five astronauts carried out a number of experiments and deployed several satellites.Some of the clearest UFO footage ever filmed was aboard this shuttle.In the video you can
clearly see what appears to be unexplained spacecraft.
was a Columbia Space Shuttle mission that launched in the middle of the 1990’s. The primary objective of
the mission was to carry the Tethered Satellite System Reflight into orbit and to deploy it spaceward on a conducting tether.The tether system would be placed within the rarefied electrically charged layer
of the atmosphere known as the ionosphere. The conducting tether will generate high voltage and electrical currents as
it moves through the ionosphere across the magnetic field lines of the earth. It was a breakthrough energy experiment. In the middle of the project a problem occurred and the tether became overloaded with over
ten times the anticipated amount of energy.The tether conductor cable broke separating it from the
space shuttle. As the cable was floating out into space it was being filmed by the astronauts and was suddenly
swarmed by dozens of unidentified flying objects.This video is widely considered the best proof of
the existence of extraterrestrial life.It can’t be explained by any scientist or video specialist.

Why is it that all the space ships are like a dish, let’s be honest, they look gay, why would an alien
make a gay looking ship.Also, all these encounters are dumb, if I were an alien, why would I just
fly around for a few seconds then disappear, just to let a few humans see me, lol surely they'd have cloaking technology
anyway, you'd have to assume the possibility.
