The case was reported for the witness – who had the experience on April 14, 2017.

“My mother was traveling through the Arizona desert via train, on her way to Texas,” she stated.“She was unable to sleep due to movement of the train. She said she was looking out of the cabin window and saw a very bright light that became brighter as the train approached.”

The witness saw more than one object.

“She said she then saw six objects hovering side-by-side; close enough to see that each object had two rows of windows. She described them as being ‘two-story.’ She said that they were so bright and that a foggy sort of light was beaming down from underneath each object.”

The witness attempted to photograph what she was seeing.

“She frantically reached for her cell phone in time to snap a couple of photos. I, myself, have seen some pretty amazing things in the sky that I can only describe as being extraterrestrial, and she was the biggest skeptic until she seen for herself. She was so excited to share this with me. She is not one to exaggerate or seek attention in anyway. She’s a no BS kind of lady. I know what she saw was genuine. She asked that I share with the UFO community. Enjoy.”

The witness was alone on a home balcony smoking a cigarette at 4:30 a.m. on April 23, 2017, gazing at the “waning crescent moon.”

“As I was observing the moon, thinking about different non-related things in my mind, I all of a sudden noticed a big, cigar-shaped object a couple degrees to the right of the moon,” the witness stated.

The witness described the object.

“The object seemed large. It was of a white-gray color, cylindrical-shaped. What seemed to be the front of the cylinder was a couple degrees upward and the bottom a couple degrees downward. In other words, it was at an angle. It did not move. It was static in the sky at the moment I noticed it.”

The witness was confused and did not know what the object was.

“A lapse of three seconds went by until the object seemed to pulsate with a white, circular light at the bottom end of the ship. In a fraction of a second after this pulse was emitted, the object propelled itself at an incredible speed. The movement lasted about a second. At the end of the second, the object pulsated another white circular light. This time at the front of the ship. And it seemed to have entered this light and disappeared. There were absolutely no sounds emitted whatsoever before, during or after the incident.”

The witness noted that Ottawa Airport is about two minutes away from where the sighting happened.

“I am used to seeing airplanes taking off or flying by. I always hear them, and I am more than certain that this was no plane. This object was huge, had no wings. It was static in the air. It made no sounds whatsoever. It flew at a speed of a shooting star upwards and disappeared.”

After the incident, the witness went inside and woke up a friend.

“I told him what had happened, but he was really sleepy, so he went to bed. I have attached a sketch of what I saw and I have enumerated the sequence of how the event happened.”

Kurt Russell alleges he witnessed famous Phoenix UFO event (VIDEO)

Kurt Russell claims to have witnessed a UFO above Phoenix, Arizona during one of the largest mass-UFO sightings in U.S. history. He discussed the event recently on BBC One’s, The One Show.

Russell is one of the leads in the new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was released recently. At the end of April, Russell appeared with co-star Chris Pratt on The One Show to promote the movie. During the interview, host Gyles Brandreth brought out a folder labeled Top Secret and X-Filish music began playing. Brandreth said he had searched the international news clippings for a story Russell and Pratt may be interested in.

Brandreth told the story in the clipping about an unidentified pilot who was flying in his private aircraft with his son near an airport in Phoenix. The pilot spotted six lights in the night sky and reported this to the control tower to find out what was going on. The tower said there were no other planes in the area.

Then in a grand finale to his story, Brandreth dramatically exclaimed, “Mystery unresolved!”

During Brandreth’s telling of the story, Pratt listened, interested, but with no real reaction. However, Russell smiled coyly. As soon as Brandreth finished, Russell chimed in.

“The tail number for that plane was Bonanza two Tango Sierra, and I was the pilot,”  Russell claimed, to the audible amazement of the other The One Show hosts. Pratt apparently was not aware this of this piece of information either. His reaction was to don an incredulous smirk as he listened to Russell tell more of the story.

Russell explained that Oliver Hudson (Goldie Hawn’s son from her first marriage, who considers Russell his father) and he were flying into Phoenix so that Hudson could see his girlfriend.

“We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” Russell continued.

According to Russell, Hudson asked him if he knew what the lights were, Russell said he did not and decided to call the tower. The tower said their radar did not detect anything, so Russell said he declared it “unidentified” since it was flying and appeared to be six objects.

The two then landed, Hudson got out, and Russell returned to L.A. The two never gave the incident a second thought after that, until two years later. Russell says he came home one day and Hawn was watching a TV show on UFOs that was covering a famous UFO event in Phoenix.

“That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” explained Russell.

Russell says as he watched the show, he “felt like Richard Dreyfuss from Close Encounters.” He felt as though for some reason he knew something about the event. The show then mentioned that a general aviation pilot reported seeing the UFO upon landing, and that is when Russell thought to himself, “that was me.”

Russell went to go check his log books, and sure enough, the flight was at the time of the UFO sighting.

“The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally, out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” Russell told the group.

Pratt, who had claimed earlier in the show to be a skeptic when it comes to UFOs, still seemed a bit hesitant, so Russell added, “It is unidentified, it is flying, and it’s an object.”

Apparently, this is the first time Russell has told this story in public. Prior to this, Russell has not been associated with the famous Phoenix UFO sighting, which took place on March 13, 1997, and is referred to as the Phoenix Lights. He did not indicate when it was he saw the UFO program that reminded of him of the incident, but my guess would be that The One Show asked the guests for any interesting space or UFO related stories they could share, and Russell certainly came up with a doozy.

You can be sure Russell’s account will be added to the narrative of the Phoenix Lights UFO event, especially if I am the one telling it.

Brexit-Election Again Delays the Release of Britains Last Secret UFO-Files

Reposted from GreWi with permission.

Saarbrucken (Germany) – Since it became known in Autumn of 2014 that contrary to the claim that the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has released all of its formerly secret UFO-files already back in 2013, still 18 files of the MoD’s former UFO-Bureau files were held back, UFO-researchers as well as historians look forward to the release of those files, that has been postponed repeatedly since then. As even the latest release date given – March 2017 – has passed, Grenzwissenschaft-Aktuell.de (GreWi), a German newsblog on frontier science and the paranormal, has asked back at the British National Archives and presents now again exclusively the latest explanation for the ongoing delay.

As a spokesperson of the National Archives explained to GreWi-editor Andreas Müller, the current delay is due to the Brexit-related United Kingdom general election which takes place on 8 June 2017.

“(…) Due the upcoming election here in the UK and the rules relating to government departments during the pre-election period, the files will not be released until after the election. We are working to ensure that the files are ready for release as soon after this period as is possible: hopefully around the middle of June.”

Part of the yet to be released UFO-documents are filed under the title “UFO-Policy” and date from 1971-76 and 1996-2000. Three other files cover June-December 2000, December–March 2004 and March 2004. Furthermore the MoD also confirmed that some files cover topics like “Air Traffic Controll Low Flying UFOs” as well as so-called “ADGE UFO Reports”, which experts assume that they are UFO related documents from the radar unity “Air Defence Ground Environment”.

Some observers even anticipate that parts of the files will include also new information about the so-called Rendlesham Forest Incident, when in December 1980 staff of the military RAF-bases Bentwaters and Woodbridge (used at the time by the U.S. Air Force) allegedly observed the landing of an unidentified flying object at close range.

Background

Contrary to its claim in 2013 that now all of its formerly classified UFO-files were released to the public via the National Archives, in 2014 the MoD had to confirm that 18 of such UFO-files were still held back. However, a publication of this files was initially announced for 2015 – but the date was delayed into early 2016, then to summer 2016 and then again into August. In August it was said that the release was again rescheduled and that the files would not be published before early 2017.

Anonymous donor saves Shag Harbour UFO incident’s 50th anniversary event

Earlier this week, a newspaper in Shelburne County, Nova Scotia reported that an event planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of Canada’s most famous UFO incidents was in jeopardy due to funding. The event is being organized by the Shag Harbour UFO Incident Society (SHUFOIS), who had hoped to secure a grant offered by Canada’s Department of Communities, Culture & Heritage. Unfortunately, they were not approved for the grant, putting the event’s future in question. However, according to SHUFOIS, an anonymous donor has come forward to fund the event, and the festivities are now back on.

Shag Harbour is a small fishing village with around 500 residents. Their claim to fame is a UFO incident that occurred on October 4, 1967.

A website setup by the Canadian Library and Archives describes the UFO event:

Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia

October 4, 1967

On the night of October 4, 1967, officers of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and six civilians witnessed an incredible, yet unexplainable, sight. Earlier in the evening, the RCMP had received many phone calls from residents reporting that an airplane had crashed into Shag Harbour. Both the RCMP and locals had rushed to the shore of the harbour, but what they encountered there was far from a conventional aircraft.

Witnesses reported seeing an object 60 feet in length moving in an easterly direction before it descended rapidly into the water, making a bright splash on impact. A single white light appeared on the surface of the water for a short period of time. The RCMP, with help from local fishermen and their boats, endeavoured to reach the object before it sank completely.

Local fishermen remember travelling through thick, glittery, yellow foam to get to where they saw the object. Bubbles from underneath the surface of the water appeared around the boats. The crews attempted to search the area for evidence of survivors, but found no one.

The Department of National Defence (DND) conducted an underwater search of the area, but failed to locate any evidence of an object.

The crashing of the unidentified flying object into Shag Harbour is still discussed today, with many articles appearing on the Internet. There is no trace of the RCMP reports of this sighting in the files. The Department of National Defence has identified this sighting as unsolved, and the only documentation that exists in the files is a DND memo.

The incident is famous in UFO circles, and often referred to as Canada’s Roswell. However, SHUFOIS members say they have not received the support they feel they deserve.

Brock Zinck, vice-president of SHUFOIS , told the Shelburne County Coast Guard, “We can’t get a lot of love here in Shag Harbour; they won’t even give us a (Highway 103) sign.”

“Maybe the government doesn’t want to know we are there,” Zinck added.

Their hearts were further broken when they were denied the grant.

“We were really counting on the grant…we were excited,” Zinck said.  “It does throw a wrench in our preparations. We had big plans to take it to the next level.”

However, in a press release OpenMinds.tv received this morning, Zinck writes: “We are back on track to make this the most epic Shag Harbour UFO Incident Festival ever. It’s going to be outta this world!”

Zinck says that a civilian, who is involved with the study of UFOs and “related phenomenon,” read about the lack of funding and, as Zinck puts it, “to our complete shock, offered a significant donation.”

Zinck says the donor wished to remain anonymous, but did provide a public statement.

Although there is much I can’t reveal, without any hesitation I can say the Canadian Government (and the International Community it answers to) appears to be concealing what happened in and around the waters of Shag Harbour, Canada on Oct 4th, 1967. People with the connections, notoriety, and finances are working hard to challenge how we view the world around us. Shag Harbour is one of the smoking guns that will be used to achieve this.

Mysterious, to say the least.

The weeklong festival will be held September 29 to October 1 later this year. There will also be an event on October 4, marking the actual anniversary of the event.

British bus driver videotapes triangle UFO

A British witness at Exmouth reported watching and videotaping three lights forming a triangle pattern slowly crossing the sky, according to testimony in Case 832412 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness is a bus driver and was outside on a break at 9:41 p.m. on April 17, 2017, when the incident occurred.

“I was taking to my best man about my upcoming wedding on the phone,” the witness stated.“I would normally be in our restroom, but since the clock in the restroom was fast (about 7 minutes fast) I had gone out early to wait while still chatting to my friend. While I was talking, I was just kind of walking about near the leisure center, where my bus stops, when I looked randomly over in the direction of the river, which is when I saw the three lights in a triangle pattern rotating on its axis and wobbling slightly.”

The witness instantly felt that the object was not normal.

“I have been interested in the subject of UFOs since I was about 10. I told my mate I’d ring him back and started filming the lights with my phone. Due to the street lights my camera was having a hard time focusing on the formation, so I moved closer to the river to get a better view – in some haste since I still had to drive a bus which was going to be there at any moment.”

The witness then shot a 2-min, 40-second video. The witness then took 7 photos and another 41 seconds of video.

“It’s at this point I really had to go back to the bus stop to get my bus. As I walked over,four people got out of a car in the car park and I pointed out the lights to them – to which they showed a bit of interest, but not much.”

The bus arrived at 10:02 p.m.

“I showed the lights to my co-worker who tried to think of any reason they might be something other than a UFO – drone, laser pointers, etc. He went to cash-in and finish and I had to drive as I was now 7 minutes late. I drove to the turn-around point and back in about 8 mins and the lights were gone by the time I got back down to town – and could not see them on the way down as I had a good view over the area due to the road I was driving.”

Don’t mess with aliens, warns director Ridley Scott

Another chapter in the “Aliens” saga is about to be released, and that gives director and “Alien” franchise founder Ridley Scott a chance to talk to the media about aliens again. This time he is warning people not to mess with any visitors from advanced civilizations or else you might be “taken out.”

First, I have to brag a bit. Sorry. But as I write this I am excitedly awaiting a sneak peek of “Alien: Covenant,” the second prequel to the legendary franchise. While writing is not always lucrative, it can get you some perks, like early press movie screenings. The movie is set to officially release in the U.S. on May 19.

I am not as used to thrillers as I was when the first “Alien” movies came out, or even the first prequel, “Prometheus,” so I hope I do not squeal in the theater, or worse, wet myself in terror. This one is supposed to be pretty scary.

Even scarier than watching aliens wreak havoc on innocent human colonists seeking to find a new life on an extraterrestrial planet is the real-life prospect of getting annihilated by visitors from outer space.

“I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely,” Scott recently told  Agence France-presse (AFP). “An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.”

However, if you “see a big thing in the sky,” Scott says you better run for it. Because, according to Scott, “they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.”

In his movies, Scott’s aliens dispatch humans even faster than that.

This, of course, is not the first time Scott has shared his ideas about extraterrestrial life. In the first of the “Alien” prequels, “Prometheus,” suggested that life on earth was seeded by an intelligent alien species. This idea is the focus of the television series Ancient Aliens, and was referred to as the “ancient astronaut theory” in the 70s. It was popularized by a series of books written by Eric van Daniken. Books that Scott has apparently read.

While promoting “Prometheus” in 2011, Scott told the Hollywood Reporter:

NASA and the Vatican agree that is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way . . . That’s what we’re looking at (in the film), at some of Eric van Daniken’s ideas of how did we humans come about.

One of my favorite scenes from “Prometheus” is when the protagonists are landing their spaceship in a valley surrounded by mountains. It is a beautiful shot. At the far end of the valley is a mountain that looks like an ancient extraterrestrial ruin, and, of course, it turned out it was.

Scott’s reference to the growing belief that life must exist elsewhere in the universe, coupled with the burgeoning private space industry, makes his version of the future more and more likely. The idea that humans may discover ancient alien relics one day, like in the landing scene, fuels my deep interest in these topics. I just hope that when, or if, we do discovery intelligent alien life, it has more regard for us earthlings than the aliens in Scott’s movies.

Fortunately, I would argue, most scientists do not share Scott’s pessimistic outlook on our galactic neighbors. Sure, Stephen Hawking is often talking about how aliens might treat us like the Europeans treated Native-Americans, but others, such as Carl Sagan and Michio Kaku disagree. In fact, Time Magazine recently posted an article on why scientist do not think aliens will eat us.

So sleep tight tonight, and do not fear being mauled by aliens (fingers crossed). However, I will not blame you if you take Scott’s advice and run the opposite direction if you see a UFO. Better safe than sorry, right?
