Quote from the report:
“2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the wave of 1957. This is an extensive report on an on-going project involving a number of people. I would not have been able to do this without the help of Rebecca Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive case researcher), Jean Waskiewicz (NICAP Database), Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns),  Barry Greenwood (newspaper clippings), Mark Rodegher (‘UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference’ [441 Cases], Loren Gross (UFOS A History), and Joan Woodward (Animal Reaction Database).
A major sighting wave year, 1957 is best-known for the Levelland, Texas sightings which began on Nov. 2. However, the key cases are the IFF electronic signaling and radar-emitting UFO cases such as RB-47 (July 17) and several others within a week or two before and after, the radioactivity case at Montville, Ohio (Nov. 6) and the nuclear weapons storage area case at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico (Nov 4), all cases of supreme scientific value. Prior to the wave flap, the Sept 20, 1957 radar tracking caused a White House and top intelligence alert. A very important year in UFOlogical history. Throughout this summary are posted key reports from the highly-acclaimed publication, ‘UFOs & Government.’ ”
NICAP.org also presents fourteen binders of newspaper clippings from 1957 on this web page!

I first reported about the UFO report on 8 July 2011.

John Alexander – UFOs & Other Phenomena Challenging Conventional Wisdom – November 7, 2017

Open Minds UFO Radio: Dr. John Alexander is a retired senior Army officer with decades of experience with a wide range of phenomena. Traveling to all eight continents, he has encountered events that defy common explanation. A psychic adventurer, he practiced psychokinetic metal bending, fire walking, and caused a white crow to fly for the National Academy of Sciences. A founding board member of IRVA, he is a past-president of IANDS, and former SSE councilor. Straddling two worlds, he is also retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory, and served on studies with the National Research Council, the Army Science Board, the Council on Foreign Relations, NATO, and was a senior fellow of a DoD university. Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross headed his doctoral committee.

In UFO circles he is known for investigating and writing about the phenomenon. During the 1980s, John organized an interagency group to explore the evidence, with participants from the military, CIA, and aerospace industry examining classic cases, including Roswell; the Gulf Breeze, Fla., photos; and unexplained incidents occurring within the U.S. strategic defense systems (such as sightings by NORAD installations), and many more. He shares his thoughts and research on UFOs in his book UFOs: Myths, Legends, and Realities.

In this interview, we discuss his latest book Reality Denied: Firsthand Experiences with Things that Can’t Happen – But Did. John shares personal experiences, including a UFO incident. We discuss other paranormal phenomenon, society’s perspective on these topics and how they interrelate.

His book can be purchased on Amazon.com.

UFOs Confront Soldiers During War, Says Ex-Air Force Intelligence Officer

UFOs Confront Soldiers During War, Says Ex-Air Force Intelligence Officer

The public rarely hears about interactions between military personnel and unexplained aircraft — especially during wartime.

As time goes on, however, UFO stories stuck behind red tape begin to see the light of day. The Vietnam War saw its share of UFO activity in the 1960s.

One close encounter, in 1968, involved the crew of an American patrol boat that reported two glowing circular craft following them in the demilitarized zone that separated North and South Vietnam (see depiction below).

Do pilots believe in UFOs? Many of them do and here is my close encounter story

People love to ask pilots questions. But my favorite, and certainly the most interesting, is “Have you ever seen a UFO while flying?”

The answer is yes. And here’s how it happened.

It was April 10, 1989 and early in my career. I was still a first officer at a regional airline. It was about 8 p.m. and we had just taken off from Kansas City International Airport bound for Waterloo, Iowa.

Air Force’s ‘Project Blue Book’ details decades of UFO reports in new digital archive

Air Force’s ‘Project Blue Book’ details decades of UFO reports in new digital archive

From weather balloons and meteors to Atlas missiles soaring high in the sky, the U.S. Air Force finally gave thousands of UFO reports spanning three decades an explanation.

After years of being stuck on microfilm at the National Archives, UFO enthusiast John Greenewald has made available more than 130,000 pages of the U.S. government’s “Project Blue Book.”

The archive of 12,600 reports have been declassified for several years, but until now, there’s been no easy way to read about Cocoa, Fla., cops seeing strange lights in the sky or the time a Shreveport, La., jokester played a flying saucer prank on a colleague.

Scientist Wants to Replicate Google Street View With Drones

Google Street View can pretty much show you every location in the world, even the Faroe Islands thanks to camera-yielding sheep, from the ground. While Satellite View shows us a large-scale aerial of the world, what about what’s in between?

Gregory Crutsinger, a scientist who’s worked for drone companies like 3D Robotics and Parrot, recently started a UAV consulting company called Drone Scholars and is leading a citizen scientist drone project called Fly4Fall. The project’s goals: to surv

3 pilots report seeing UFOs over UK’s Scientology HQ

Close encounters of the Scientology kind:

Pilots aboard three passenger planes in the vicinity of London’s Gatwick Airport late last year reported seeing a pair of “flat, silver discs” hovering near the UK headquarters of the Church of Scientology.

Air traffic controllers also said that they saw six UFOs on radar screens before the objects disappeared, according to a report issued last week by the UK’s Airprox Board.

The board examines reports of air traffic safety violations in UK airspace and recommends safety measures.

Weird Phenomenon In The Sky Appears Above Gilbert, Arizona

A weird colorful sky phenomenon has been filmed by Mrmbb333 on November 6, 2017 at 11.11am as he walked out of his home depot in Gilbert, Arizona.

The phenomenon is a so-called fire rainbow caused by sunlight reflecting off of ice crystals or maybe it is an earthquake light?

What to think about the effects of geo-engineering? Could it be a chembow around the sun which is the effect of chemicals like aluminium, barrium and strauntium components released by chemtrails in the air causing the unusual display in the sky?

You can see the strange phenomenon in the short un-edited video below. (Note: The blue dot in the images and video is lens flare.)

Human Brain ‘Organoids’ Implanted Into Rats

Tiny brain “organoids,” or clusters of neurons grown from human stem cells, have been implanted into rats.

The news comes from Stat, and it seems that two different teams have managed to integrate human brain cells into rat brains. The organoids began stretching out new cells, and even showed signs of activity when the researchers shone lights at the rat’s eyes, a sign that they were functionally connected to the rats’ own neurons.
Organ-ish
It’s another step forward in the new, but rap
