UFO Reported Over Cooper Nuclear Station, Declassified Documents Reveal

UFO Over Cooper Nuclear Station - Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) (Pg 2)


     According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC):

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was created as an independent agency by Congress in 1974 to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes while protecting people and the environment. The NRC regulates commercial nuclear power plants and other uses of nuclear materials, such as in nuclear medicine, through licensing, inspection and enforcement of its requirements.

Over the years, many UFO reports have surfaced regarding unidentified craft being seen over sensitive nuclear installations. It only makes sense, that the NRC would be a prime target under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for documents relating to the phenomena.

The documents were received relatively quickly. They were requested by The Black Vault on February 27, 2017, and were declassified and released to me on March 23, 2017.

Most surprising, there is new information never-before-seen within these records. It is revealed that a former security guard of the Cooper Nuclear Station witnessed a UFO sometime between the years 1986 and 1989. The report described the UFO encounter as the following:

While posted at the intake structure one night, he observed an “unidentified flying object” fly down the Missouri River about 150 feet in the air and hover in front of the intake. He observed it for a few moments and then contacted a fellow security officer who also observed it (he could not recall the individual’s name exactly but his first name was [REDACTED] and his last name was either [REDACTED ]. After they together observed the UFO, it turned and went back up the river and did not come back that shift. He and the other officer shared their observation with their peers who did not believe them.

The next evening he again was posted at the intake and observed the UFO return again. This time he didn’t call anyone until the UFO had traversed into the protected area and hovered above the protected area just north of the Reactor Building. He said it was roughly triangular in shape with a circle of rotating lights on the bottom. He could not hear any propulsion noise from the UFO. He believes that it was roughly 1/3 the size of the Reactor Building. Once the UFO hovered in the protected area. He called the security break room and most of the officers on shift observed the UFO.

Interestingly, after the report was taken by the NRC, the documents were compiled and sent to Cooper Nuclear Station in 2010. Although no formal response was requested, Cooper Nuclear Station was told only to tell employees there that were on a “need to know” basis.

The declassified records also include reports submitted by the public to the NRC about UFO activity, and even alien technology. The NRC gave the standard response to all of the letters sent in, that the NRC mission did not include the topics they were writing about.

The declassified documents can be seen here, in their entirety. They are unedited and appear exactly how they were received by The Black Vault from the NRC.

Conway Teenagers Saw a 'Flying Saucer'

     A close encounter of the Sychnant pass kind interrupted the evening jog of three schoolboys last week.

Nigel Harris, Craig Roberts and Justin Everly, all third pupils at Aberconwy School, claim they saw a flying saucer hovering over the Pass as they dropped down into Dwygyfylchi on their run.

It is the second sighting in the area in a month after a policeman reported seeing a UFO in Penmaenmawr.

By North Wales Daily Post

Craig of Bryn Benarth, Conwy said: “Nigel stopped because he had stitch, but Justin and I kept on running, and as we were jogging along Justin looked up and said ‘Oh God, a flying saucer’.

“It was level with the mountain top, travelling between 50-60mph. In about 10 seconds it had disappeared over the mountain.” […]

Disc-Shaped UFO Photographed During Camping Trip

Disc-Shaped UFO Photographed During Camping Trip 10-3-1988

By Roger Marsh

     An Indiana witness at Metamora recalled a UFO incident from 1988 when he and his brother watched a disc-shaped object moving overhead at incredible speeds and angles and then later captured the object on film, according to Case 73477 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The sighting occurred on October 3, 1988, while the brothers were camping on a hill on their father’s property.

“We were watching Monday Night Football on a portable battery powered television,” the witness stated.“The reception began to go in and out several times during the game keeping us busy moving the antenna around to get reception, when we noticed a dim glowing object in the sky straight above us moving in strange directions.”

The witness described the object.

“The light made sudden stops and turned at sharp angles in the sky. We watched it for about two minutes before it shot out of the night sky.”

The next day the two brothers went squirrel hunting and returned to the camp during the afternoon.

“Before packing up I took a picture of my brother standing in our camp. Not until the film was developed sometime later, we noticed the object in the sky above our camp. There was no noise coming from the object. We had heard planes fly over earlier while hunting because sound carries well on top of that hill. My brother and I had a hard time believing what we saw that night above our camp. My brother had not been out of the Air Force very long and said that he knew of no such plane that could maneuver like that. We only now after some 27 years have decided to share this because at the time this happened people looked at you like you’re a nut or liar. We are not looking for attention here, but would like an honest opinion of what we encountered.” […]
