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.

Watch the video above, or on The One Show’s Facebook page.

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.

You can find out more about the festival at www.ShagHarbourIncident.com.
