Ancient Alien Face Found On Mars Hilltop, March 27, 2019, UFO Sighting News.

Date of discovery: March 17, 2019
Location of discovery: Mars
NASA Source:

I have to say this is one of the most amazing discoveries I have ever made. This face above shows a crown, face, cloak over shoulders and chest of the person. This sculpture was placed on a hill in a way that it can overlook a large area of Mars. The face above is about 1.5 meters tall. There may actually be more of the sculpture buried below the dirt, much like the Easter Island statues also had full bodies, but the bodies were buried below the dirt so only the heads were visible. There was also a lot of other objects like pipes, giant sculpture skull, and a fallen over alien statue. 

So ask yourself, why hasn't NASA reported these objects which are in the NASA archives? To over look such important discoveries is beyond incompetent. NASAs lack of effort and lack of information about these alien artifacts is proof that they are not doing their jobs. I can't help but wonder why people still trust NASA when they have lied to the public for over five decades? I do know that outside of the USA, other countries like Taiwan has lost trust in NASA a lot...around a 50-60% drop since the fake moon landing evidence came out. 

Perhaps the public should create their own company to investigate alien life. The time has come to share all information with the public.

Alien Artifact Found On Mars Surface Near NASA Rover, Aug 29, 2018, UFO Sighting News.

Date of discovery: Aug 29, 2018
Location of discovery: Mars, Sol 2011
NASA photo:

I was looking over some grey Mars photos taken by the rover, when I notices a carved object with an thick edge sticking out from under a rock. The object looks like its been carved using machines. The shape is like a rectangle but with a thick edge around one side. Its bewildering why NASA would not report such things. I'm sure their funding would multiply ten times if such alien artifacts were reported by them.

Baby Blue Sky Seen On Mars In Many NASA Photos, Aug 2018, UFO Sighting News.

 Original photos, unedited! 

Date of discovery: August 24, 2018
Location of discovery: Mars

Source photos by spirit of blue sky on Mars below.

While searching through the NASA index of Mars photos, I happened to stumble upon a few that reveals the true color of the Mars sky. NASA usually takes the Mars photos and puts them into false color...which is very dark brown red. It also like to take photos and put them into black and white, to confuse the eyes. NASA often puts a note below red photos of Mars that they are in FALSE COLOR, so although NASA does this without an explanation...they do it letting the public know in the photo descriptions. False color makes the planet look red, like dark soil from a garden bag. 

Clouds on Mars, same as Earth, NASA Link:

In these photos I found we have a normal view of Mars. The colors of the rocks very between white and blue. The sky blue and cloudless, although I have reported clouds in the sky of Mars in the past, so they do exist. The sky, looks a lot like todays sky on Earth. I just wanted to let you in on a little secret that NASA doesn't want you to know about, or to see.

Why does NASA usually put Mars photos into FALSE COLOR? To prevent Mars from looking as hospitable as it really is. To make it look impossible to live on. To hide the blue sky and white clouds, normal earth-like ground so that other countries will not pool their resources and make their own mission to Mars without NASAs assistance. Imagine half of Mars claimed by China and the other half by Russia. That would be impossible for NASA to fight, so America would no longer allowed to build space stations on the red planet, unless they made serious payments to China or Russia.  
Scott C. Waring

Above is a false color photo that the public normally sees, but its fake, its not real but NASA gets away with it because they label the photos False Color and the public never asks why?

Below are the side by side view of Mars photos NASA released. So...Mars does have a blue sky like Earth and clouds like it may be more hospitable than scientists previously believed. 


UFO Cloaked In Cloud Caught In Santos City Philippines. July 10, 2018, UFO Sighting News.

Date of sighting: July 10, 2018
Location of sighting: General Santos, Philippines 

This awesome UFO was hiding above a cloud during sunset and for a few minutes the cloaked craft was visible to the naked eye. Such beautiful colors and notice the round disk edge of the craft. This looks to be at least 500 meters across.

Eyewitness states: 
Unfortunately, I had only one phone at hand, the "good" HD Camera is currently defective. The colors were actually much more intense ...


Moon size UFO recorded by NASA near Earths sun, July 31, 2018, Video, UFO Sighting News.

Date of sighting: July 31, 2018
Location of sighting: Earths sun, SOHO images

Here is a moon size UFO near our sun this week. The UFO has several long arms, which makes me think this is a space station that wanders our solar system. Currently its near our sun because its trying to use some rare particles that the sun produces to power its craft and devices. Found in the SOHO NASA images, this UFO is just one of many per day that visit our sun. Some UFOs are many times bigger than this, yet go unreported, would the public react if they knew that not only were we not alone in our solar system, but UFOs bigger than earth itself commonly passed by our planet? The public would panic, suicide rates would skyrocket, alien religions like Scientology would become powerhouses in the religious sectors, anti alien groups would form and arm themselves. And what effect would this have on financial and judicial systems of the world? There would be chaos! Therefore the governments of the world remain silent.

UFOmania of Youtube states: 
It appears to be a metallic-looking part of a spacecraft that smashed on the surface of the planet or at least it is an abandoned or nonfunctional vehicle or part of a machine which has been used on Mars.

UFO SIGHTINGS 2016 Alien Documentary Hangar 18 The UFO Warehouse, UFO Sightings Daily.

This documentary has been on my mind a lot, so I want to share it with you. You may like it as much as I did. Its informative and enlightening.
Scott C. Waring

What happens when a UFO crashes? Some experts claim that the UFO wreckage and even the pilots are transported to a top-secret facility in Dayton, Ohio called Hangar 18 located on Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

Declassified Government documents prove that the disk from the famous Roswell event and fragments of other mysterious crashes were shipped to Wright Patterson. Hear stories involving elected officials, UFO researchers, and former base employees, some of whom are going on the record regarding Hangar 18.

They spin a tale of flying saucer debris, alien bodies, cryogenic chambers and a vast underground network that may hold the secrets to the UFO mystery. Is there a conspiracy to hide UFO evidence from the highest branches in the U.S. Government, or is it all just a myth?

UFO sighting shocks Herbert family In Australia On Aug 2016, UFO Sighting News.

Date of sighting: August 2016
Location of sighting: Herbert area, Australia
News source:

Australia outback is large and mostly uninhabited, so its only logical that the US gov asked Australia to a lot a large amount of land to aliens for their personal use (underground bases)...probably land that is a preserve, with no hunting, no living on, no harming the trees and such. Its a well known fact that the US works on its top secret aircraft outside of the US in order to confuse the public. And the USAF probably got some new tech from them.  This looks a lot like one of those projects called the TR3B. As a matter of fact, I just reported this UFO passing over Yellowstone park on live cam a few days ago. Probably made by Bigelow Aerospace. The witness states that the UFO was 100X bigger than a plane. I stated a few days ago, that the UFO over Yellowstone was over 100 meters long, possibly up to 300 meters. It fits.

News states: 
A GIANT triangular UFO “100 times bigger than a plane” that emerged on the Tablelands on the weekend has shocked a young family.

Kyle Mathiot was playing with sparklers with his two young boys and partner Deborah Price in the front yard of their Herberton home on Saturday about 7.30pm when they spotted something strange in the distance.

“I notice one light up in the sky and it was way, way too big to be a star,” Mr Mathiot said.

“I went to get my partner’s phone, and started taking pictures of it and all of a sudden there was another two lights, and it was in the shape of a triangle, with a big light up the front and another two lights up the back.”

Mr Mathiot, 21, took several photos of the aircraft as it hovered in the same place for about half an hour before it disappeared.

“It was zipping around like no plane or drone we’ve ever seen,” he said.

“The lights were about two centimetres apart in the sky.

“It had to be a massive object.

“It definitely wasn’t a drone. It was 100 times bigger than a plane.”

He said he was amazed by the sheer size of the unknown object.

“I kind of like that type of stuff. I’m kind of a believer but I’m not freaked out, just in shock,” he said.

“I’ve never had an experience like that.”

An Australian Defence Force spokesman said there was no evidence of military aircraft in the Herberton area at the time of the sighting.

Alec Brimacombe, the Far Northern investigator for UFO Research Queensland, said Mr Mathiot’s photos certainly appeared to show a triangular object.

“I’m not aware of any reports from Herberton but there were sightings of smaller objects around Tinaroo last year,” he said.

“Certainly there are a great many reports of flying triangular objects seen around the world.”

He said in other cases, the large size of triangular UFOs was often mentioned.

“If the object was sighted with the naked eye, then it cannot be a photographic anomaly,” he said.

“The three points of light suggest a structured triangular object or craft.

“As to what it is, we just cannot say.

“It sounds too large for a drone and the zigzag movements are not characteristic of planes – civilian or military.”

Germany Reports That Red Baron Shot Down UFO On 81st Mission! Aug 2016, UFO Sighting News.

Date of event: 1917-1918
Location of event: French battle lines
News source:

Its possible that the Red Barons two front machine guns could have damaged not the UFO, but the airier antenna on the top center of the craft. Not all craft have this antenna, but Area 51 UFO nuclear engineer Bob Lazar said it controls steering of the craft. If this antenna was hit by the Baron, then yes, a UFO would lose control and be forced to land to make repairs. 
Scott C. Waring

German News states: 
He was already a living legend: ace Baron Manfred von Richthofen, also known as the "Red Baron" - because of its bright red painted aircraft. He is 80 victories as the best fighter of the First World War.

Was UFO his 81st launch?
But perhaps it was even 81 kills, as now the BILD newspaper speculates citing statements from a fellow aviators Richthofen. This would be the "Red Baron" the world's first aviators ever, the something is ever succeeded.

The assertion is Nigel Watson in his book "The UFO's of the First World War" (in German: "UFOs in World War I") on. Richthofen's Mate Peter Waitz Rick makes it such statements - he claims to have accompanied Richthofen on this patrol.

Large silver and disc-shaped object
As the morning broke up two in the spring when the weather from their airfield on a reconnaissance flight, said to have discovered von Richthofen a large silver disc-shaped object that was also lit in orange.

Without long to torches took von Richthofen chase - and shot the UFO from heaven. Two aliens should be then fled into a forest, writes the Bild newspaper.

With the history of Comrade von Richthofen's probably gone so late to the public because he did not know that it could have acted as an alien craft.


Mystery 4 meter UFO Disc found near Volgograd in Russia, Sept 2015, UFO Sighting News.

Date of discovery: Sept 9, 2015
Location of discovery: Volgograd, Russia

Do you see the whitish parts on this disk? Thats the metal tungsten that he describes. It has been found at some alleged UFO crash sites. Also this disk was measured to be over 1 million years old. It looks to me like the stone disks I've seen in Mars NASA photos, which leads me to conclude that this UFO is a military drone, but it was probably damaged during the Mars attack and got off course, crashing on Earth. This one is also big enough it might not be a drone, but a manned vessel. Remember alien have the power to make anything fly, regardless of weight. This disk is special, DARPA will want it, because its the perfect drone. How many times would Russia have to shoot at one of these to knock it out of the sky? A lot.

News states:
Expedition "Kosmopoisk" headed by Vadim went to Zhirnovsky district on September 9. Just a couple of hours ago, about 8-9 pm September 9, the first day of excavation ended in Medveditskaya ridge zhirnovsky district in the Volgograd region.  The place long ago became a famous because of mystical phenomenon.  It justifies its reputation at this time. Experts "Kosmopoisk" managed to find a giant disk, the first-ever 4-meter-high stone disc. UFOlogists have no doubt that it is from space. We managed to find a dozen of these stone disks, he told the "Notepad Volgograd," a famous Russian UFO researcher Vadim Chernobrov.  However, this is such a unique one. 

Other disks have diameters of not more than 1 meter. Previously, we have been able to publish the findings of these alien objects, but the biggest of them found in the Kuzbass was a diameter of 2 meters. The stone disc UFOs really made waves. A man said that in the area they are something mystical. Ufologists are expected to know the age of the discovery and the purpose of the metallic inclusions. The results were quite controversial. Judging by geoporodam on the subject, its age is about one million years. Meanwhile, the metal inclusions in it, in particular, tungsten, has not been understood. Examinations will continue. Now the disc is in Zhirnovsky museum. Work on the ground will be resumed tomorrow. UFOlogists expect to continue to look for traces of the UFO in the Volgograd region.
 Above is a smaller disk being lifted up. 2 meters across. 


Ancient Pillar Found Is Evidence Of Ancient Aliens, Aug 2015, UFO Sighting News.

Date of discovery: August 2015
Location of discovery: Sicilian Channel, between Tunisia and Sicily

This is fantastic. A 15 ton pillar of limestone with holes mechanically drilled though it is awesome proof that intelligent beings were here on Earth long ago. This is before humans had the ability to create complex tools. Even today, moving and carving a 15 ton block of limestone would be extremely difficult if done without electrical or gas machinery. Perhaps this is close to the lost island of Atlantis, which was an alien city.
Scott C. Waring

News states: 
At least 9,300 years ago, Stone Age hunter-gatherers in a now-submerged area of the Mediterranean Sea accomplished a feat that even most modern humans could not do: They apparently cut a 15-ton limestone pillar with precision, drilled holes in it and transported it nearly 300 meters (984 feet). The monolith is 12 meters (39 feet) long. Oceanographers studying the Mediterranean sea floor in the Sicilian Channel between Tunisia and Sicily in 2012 found the monolith 40 meters (131 feet) deep. In a new paper in the Journal of Archaeological Science, the researchers say this area became submerged about 9,350 years ago, give or take 200 years. Before that, the area was shallow sea with an archipelago of several islands about halfway between the island of Sicily and the North African coast. The researchers say the discovery of this submerged pillar may require scholars to rethink the idea of “technological primitivism” among hunter-gatherers. Researchers were able to date the monolith by extracting shell fragments from it. The dating showed the pillar has the same composition and age as nearby limestone. Seawater covered the area when the last Ice Age ended around 9,350 years ago, so the pillar is assumed to have been fashioned at least that long ago.


How UFO Researchers Know UFOs Create Clouds To Hide Within, Sept 1957 US Army Ft. Belvoir, Virginia Sighting.

Date of sighting: September 1957
Location of sighting: Fort Belvoir, Virginia, USA
Eyewitness: Army Private Stone
Source: Flying Saucers UFO Reports Magazine, page 6-9, by Ralph Rankow.

Flying Saucers UFO Reports Magazine states: 

UFOs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but probably the most rare of all is that ring-shaped UFO. It's not quite an anomaly since it has been reported on several occasions, but it certainly is a rarity. To my knowledge, it has only been photographed on one occasion and on that one occasion, an alert army private took a series of six photographs which reveal a second rarity  reported in connection with UFOs.

On many occasions UFOs are reported to become gradually engulfed in a vapor cloud. The fully developed cloud looks like any other cloud in the sky and affords the UFO with a very convenient hiding place. The series of photographs made by the army private, not only show the rare ring object, but also shows it gradually becoming engulfed in the vapor cloud.

This series of photographs, which are probably the most amazing and puzzling pictures ever taken of a UFO, have never been published any place. They are presented to the readers of this magazine as a UFO photo exclusive.

The army private who took the set of photographs has asked that I not use his real name in this story since the photos were taken on an army base and since he still is in the Air Force reserves. However, his true identity is known to many others, as will be seen in the story which follows. For convenience we will call him private Jim Stone.

In September, 1957, Private Stone was stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. He was assigned to the Post Engineers. It was about 9 AM while he was working inside buildings in the Post Engineer section, when someone yelled to him and others to come outside to see the odd thing coming over head towards their area.

Stone and five or six others ran out and spotted an odd, black ring, moving slowly, high above the tree tops but below the broken cloud cover. The ring seems solid enough, not a smoke ring and Private Stone guessed the size of the ring to be about 60 feet in diameter, with the ring width about five or 6 feet. (This was a guess, possibly incorrect.) 

Private Stone remembered his Kodak Brownie camera which was in his car. He ran over to the car, which was parked nearby, grabbed the camera and took six pictures in fairly rapid sequence. After the second picture was taken, the strange ring started to develop a mist around itself. The mist thickened rapidly until it was more like a small cloud and within 30 to 60 seconds the Black ring was completely enveloped within a small compact cloud of its own.

The complete sequence was recorded by Private Stone on his 127 brownie, but later he began to have some misgivings. Could this be some secret Army device that he should not have been photographing?

During their coffee break, the soldiers discussed the strange ring and Private Stone learned that some of the others also have photographed the object. They decided that it probably was some type of experiment and they decided against making any mention of the pictures they had taken. Private stone wanted to stay clear of trouble. He even waited until he returned home before having the pictures developed.

He was assigned to the Post Engineers for only a short time and had little opportunity to get acquainted with the other soldiers. Now 10 years later, he has no idea who the other soldiers are or where they may be reached. It is hoped that if any of the other soldiers happened to read this story, they will get in touch with the author. Their names will be kept anonymous if they so desire.

Over the years, Private Stone occasionally showed the pictures to friends, most of whom evidentially reacted as if it were some joke. In March, 1966 one of his friends made the suggestion that perhaps the pictures should be sent to the NICAP, to see what they thought of them. And so, the NICAP received the pictures from Private Stones friend with his notation:  Due to the increased in UFO sightings, we felt these photos could be of interest. If any other information is needed, please contact Mr. X. Mr. Stone's real name and address was given. NICAP Forwarded the letter and photographs to me for photographic analysis. At the time, I was the NICAP Photographic advisor; I have since resigned. 

The pictures looked extremely good to me. Those with the ring being enveloped in a cloud would have been difficult for a professional photographer to fake, let alone an amateur with a Brownie camera. I immediately wrote to Private Stone who of course by then was Mr. Stone.

A month later I received my first letter from Mr. Stone. He answered my questions and apologized for the delay, explaining that the time was spent in searching throughout the house for the negatives. Unfortunately, he was unable to find them. He explained that since taking the pictures in 1957 he had moved seven times. The negatives were misplaced, although he feels that they are still around...someplace. If he locates them, he will gladly make them available to us.

I made a set of negatives from Mr. Stone's prints, and I sent a copy prints to Dr. James E McDonald and a Prof. Charles A. Maney, for their opinions. Dr. McDonald is an authority on atmospheric physics Professor Maney a mathematician and physicist now deceased.

Dr. McDonald Showed extreme interest in the pictures, and on September 9, 1966 he phoned Mr. Stone to get more details and further impressions on the credibility of the photos. In his report to the NICAP, Dr. McDonald stated that Stone, "sounded entirely straightforward about the whole thing." He also added that there was "no evident reason to doubt his story nor to doubt the authenticity of those peculiar  photos." 

Prof. Maney termed the photographs, "a most intriguing set of photos." He also said, "As Regards to the rings appearance, I refer to an old expression, 'there is more to it than meets the eye.' There are laws of physics yet to be discovered, and in this case, I believe that the human eye and the camera saw only a part of the aerial object."

I asked Prof. Maney if he could think of any circumstances under which such have vapor cloud might form, and if it would be possible to duplicate such a cloud under controlled conditions. To this he answered, "I am inclined to think that ionization of the air in the vicinity of the aerial object produced the vapor which was seen to form around and inside the ring." He then related to some experiments conducted by physicist Noel Scott in 1952 at of all places Fort Belvoir, Va. Scott, by introducing molecules of ionized air into the partial vacuum of a 3 foot Bell jar, created miniature masses of illuminated air.

At the time, Scott told the Air Force investigators, he had no idea whether the conditions of his experiment were likely to exist in the atmosphere. However, Dr. George Ray Wait, internationally known physicist of Carnegie Institute said, "I know of no conditions in the earth's atmosphere, high or low, that would duplicate those needed to make the laboratory models at Fort Belvoir."

Prof. Maney said he agreed with Dr. Wait's statement, but added, "the  Ring of Mr. Stone's pictures may have introduced a high degree of ionization on the air about it, a condition not natural to the unaffected air itself."

It is surprising that NICAP, having known of these photos and of the favorable scientific evaluations of them has seen fit to keep all news of their existence out of the bimonthly publication. Since NICAP professes to "investigate and make known to the public, all reports of UFOs," it is inconceivable that such a rare series of photographs was not deemed worthy of mention in their publication.

Double rings

Prof. Maney was kind enough to relate to me the case of a double ring which was observed March 31, 1952 in Greenfield, Massachusetts by Charles T. Early. 

Mr. Early was burning leaves in his backyard on Sunday afternoon. The sky was clear and there was no wind. Suddenly he heard a swishing noise, as if a windstorm were coming up. He looked up quickly to see if the wind on his bonfire would endanger two large farms that were near.

What he saw in the sky were two large rings, parallel to each other with one about 4 feet above the other. He estimated their diameter to be about 30 feet. They were bright, like polished chrome. The tubes (if they were that) were estimated to be about 4 inches in thickness.

As the pair of rings whirled through the air, they did not change their relative positions. They came zooming down towards Mr. Early with such speed that he was certain they would hit the ground. However, just before reaching the ground they rose up again, into the sky, still spinning in a clockwise direction.

The planes of the rings at first were horizontal and then they turned on and to become vertical, (as wheels are arranged on a vehicle). The rings hovered over Mr. early for a minute, and move south about 50 feet where they resumed the horizontal position. As they began to pick up speed, there was a little irregularity of movement. When the speed became roughly that of a jet plane, the motion was smooth.

Mr. Early saw the double ring head for a factory chimney. Then it suddenly shot up in the air and moved toward a large mountain about 6 miles away, traveling at the rate of a jet or 500 mph. It then banked, turned and headed towards Mr. Early. When it was within one quarter of a mile from him, it suddenly shot upward at a speed estimated at about 1500 mph. It went so fast that it was lost from site in a second.

He noted that when the object hovered over him, it made a humming noise which reminded him of the sound sometimes heard while standing under a telephone wire in the country.

Another case of a double ring was pointed out by Gordon Creighton of the Flying Saucer Review, the well-known British UFO magazine. This sighting was made by Mrs. Millicent Harris and is detailed in the Review's Nov./Dec. edition. The rings were golden colored and were partially hidden by its own cloud. (See sketch)

The cover of the Jan./Feb. 1964 addition of the Flying Saucer Review contains a sketch of a ring object which had a thick spindle through the center. (See sketch taken from the F.S.R.). This object was seen on September 15, 1963 at 4:45 PM by James Poulton and Mr. P. R. Shergold. They were near Barton-on-Sea, Hampshire when James Poulton noticed the strange object moving along at a moderate speed and at a very high altitude. He described it as being very bright and silvery all over, except for the black spots at either end of the center spindle. The object was inclined at 40° towards the direction of flight. An interesting case of a cloud UFO is related by Jacques and Janine Vallee in their book, Challenge To Science, (Henry Regnery Co. 1966). On April 11, 1964 (just 13 days before the famous Socorro, New Mexico landing), a New York State physiotherapist and his family were having a picnic supper. The time was about 6:30 PM. There were four witnesses, and the sighting lasted 45 minutes. It involved a dark, oblong object, which assumed a vertical position and was seen through binoculars as "almost boiling out," with wisps of smoke actually streaming out of the main body of the cloud. That's one point, this object emitted a flash of light and shot forward at a very high velocity, then retracted its path in the same manner. (Certainly not the behavior of a normal cloud.) It finally seemed to divide into several smaller objects. 

This object and its behavior, although unusual, is typical of the class of arial phenomenon first recognized by Aime Michel in a study of the French cases of 1954. For lack of a better term, Michel called this phenomenon "cigar cloud. It has been observed in Great Britain, South America, the USA, Australia, Poland, and the Soviet Union. 

As Prof. Charles Maney put it, "There are laws of physics yet to be discovered, and in this case (the ring UFO) I believe that the human eye and the camera saw only a part of the aerial object." The truth or fallacy of that statement may be a long time away in the knowing, but our ignorance will be prolonged as long as our government "pooh-poohs" UFO reports, and creates an atmosphere which discourages scientists from seriously considering these reports. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara added to this atmosphere of squelching scientific inquiry in March 1966, when he told congressmen that he could "Categorically deny" the possibility that UFOs had extraterrestrial implications. The defense chief said all UFO sightings have been investigated by the military and there was no evidence to support the theory that they might be controlled vehicles from outer space or anywhere else.

McNamara's statement is contradicted by one who should know,  Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the Air Force's own scientific consultants on UFO cases, has stated that the Air Force has never conducted a scientific investigation of UFOs. There was was a military investigation to determine if any threat existed to national security. This statement was made before the current scientific study now underway at Colorado University. Indeed, the Colorado University study would not even have been contracted for if McNamara's Statement had been true. 

Dr. Hynek told a NASA scientific seminar that UFOs have been picked up on NORAD and SAC radars... But we're scoffed at by the military. He added that 100 or so reliable reports cannot be ruled out without further evidence, and he said that on several occasions IGY optical tracking networks pictured unexplained UFOs.

Gratefully, not all scientists are swayed by these unscientific statements, even if they do come from the Secretary of Defense. Let's hope more and more of these thinking scientist join their associates in UFO research, to bring nearer the day when we may know for sure the "whys and wherefores" of UFOs.
