UFO Observers NASA Apollo 7 Module In Earths Orbit, UFO Sighting News.

Date of discovery: June 4, 2020
Location of discovery: Earths Orbit
NASA Photo:

This UFO is in an old Apollo 7 mission photo. Its on the official NASA website so there is no possibility of it being faked. The object is hovering over earth, but close to the Apollo 7 module. Aliens are deeply interested in historical events and often have a drone or piloted craft observing from a distance to see first hand how it all takes place. The written history and the actual history are often slightly different and in some cases incredibly different. So aliens try to observe first hand.

Funny how your life can get turned upside down just because you see something. Kenneth Arnold's story is the story of a pretty straight guy. He was an Eagle Scout when he was a teen-ager. He worked for the Red Cross. He was an All-State football player in high school, with hopes of being a college star until a knee injury cut his football career short.

After college, Arnold became a salesman and learned to fly, combining the two by flying from small town to small town selling fire control equipment, eventually owning the Great Western Fire Control Supply Company. He was a member of the Sheriff's "aerial posse"of Ada County, Idaho, he was a relief U.S. Marshall, and he sometimes flew prisoners to the Federal Penitentiary. Flying his light plane, a Callair, was the basis of his livelihood.

In other words, he was the perfect UFO witness: a solid citizen, honest and trustworthy, married, with two daughters.

On June 24, 1947, he was returning home from a business trip when he made a detour into the Yakima, Washington area to help in an aerial search for a missing C-46 marine transport plane that was believed to have gone down in the area.

At around 3:00 in the afternoon, he was flying at about 9,000 feet, near Mount Rainier, when a flash of light caught his eye. He turned and saw a procession of nine very strange objects flying from north to south in front of his plane. They were flat and rather heel-shaped, very shiny, and they moved erratically, like a "saucer would if you skipped it across water." You can see Arnold's drawing of what he saw here. Arnold estimated their size at about two-thirds that of a DC-4, and he calculated their speed at over 1500 mph by timing their travel between two mountain peaks of known distance.

When he arrived at Yakima, Washington, Arnold told several other pilots about his sighting. The consensus among them was that it was some type of military "secret weapon". However, Arnold would later find that the U.S. military was as mystified by the objects as he himself was.

In Pendleton, Oregon, Arnold went to make a report to the FBI, but the local office was closed, so he talked to the editor of the East Oregonian newspaper instead and it was the editor who put the story on the newswires. Because of Arnold's background and reliability as a witness, the story got wide circulation. Here's Arnold's report in his own words.

What did Arnold see? Skeptics said everything from clouds to blowing snow on the mountain, to droplets of water on his airplane window. Here Martin Kottmeter shoots down some of the early theories of what Arnold saw. More recent explanations include Phil Klass' meteorite fragments and James Easton's white pelicans.

The June sighting and the resulting hoopla were not the end of Arnold's association with UFOs. On July 5th, 1947, Arnold was introduced to Captain E. J. Smith, who, along with his co-pilot and a stewardess, had seen a formation of UFOs over Emmett, Idaho. They hit it off well and became good friends.

In the middle of July, Arnold received a letter from Raymond Palmer, editor of the pulp magazine Amazing Stories. Arnold didn't know who Palmer was, since he didn't read the pulps. Palmer wanted Arnold to write down his experiences for publication in the magazine and he offered to pay. Arnold didn't particularly care about the money and sent Palmer a copy of what he had already told the newspapers and the Army Air Corps.

Later in July, a couple of Army Air Force intelligence officers named Lt. Frank M. Brown and Capt. William Davidson had a friendly meeting with Arnold. He gave them an account of his sighting and they asked him to report any further incidents to them. Lt. Brown filed a report giving his impression of Arnold's story.

This cylindrical-appearing UFO was photographed over New York City on March 20, 1950. The photographer's name was deleted from Project Blue Book's files -- as were most names when the material was finally declassified and released. Upon investigating the report, Project Grudge officially labeled it: "the moon"! Some ufologists have speculated that tubular objects of this sort may be "mother ships," purportedly capable of taking on and discharging smaller "craft" in stacks, poker-chip fashion.


This Day In UFO History: Nov 18, 2005, UFO Sighting News.

Date of sighting: Nov 18, 2005
Location of sighting: Norwich, England
Chance of being real: 90%

Something that is very important in this case is the fact that UFOs are often invisible to the naked eye, but the camera lens and sometimes properly filtered sun glasses allow these objects to be seen. SCW

Eyewitness states:
My husband photographed this object late last year. I had sensed it; however, the object wasn't visible at the time this photograph was taken. 

What is interesting is that the landmark is less than 40 feet high, and the area it was photographed is a high street. There were a lot of shoppers that day and the public never noticed it. It was hanging there, invisible except to the camera. 

Looking objectively, the object would have been quite large had it been visible. It made no noise. I have several other UFO photos, but this is really interesting, considering the sceptism of my husband.

This Day In UFO History: UFO Seen Close Up At Maslin Beach, Australia On March 10, 1993, UFO Sighting News.

The 1993 Maslin Beach photo case

When Eric Thomason in Maslin Beach, Australia, looked out across the ocean, he saw - to his great surprise - how an object rose from the waves and started flying towards him. When the object came nearer, Eric took out his camera and started taking photographs.
- "I could feel water dripping from the craft", he tells UFO-Aktuellt.

By Clas Svahn
Translation by Stefan Isaksson

The photographs are quite sensational, and there are really just two alternatives: either Eric Thomason's photographs are the most astounding so far, or it's just a simple hoax.

Eric Thomason, 69, is a senior citizen living in Maslin Beach in southern Australia. Not far from his house is an old abandoned mine, Maslin Old Quarry, where he sometimes takes his dog for a walk.

In March 1993, Eric decided to try to document the old mine using his son's camera, a Kodak S50 with a Fuji 100 ASA-film. Despite having never owned a camera of his own and having virtually no experiencing photographing, Eric set off in order to try to capture the beautiful colors of the open-cast mine from as many angles as possible. And, s photo contest in the magazine "Southern Times-Messenger" about the best image of a sunrise over land also helped him in his decision. He thought he would be able to capture the sunrise on film from Ochre Point, a cliff 60 meters high from where hang-gliders used to take off - but the sun was hidden behind a dense layer of clouds.

The Sun was Hidden

Wednesday, March 10, didn't appear to be much better. It was a cool morning, only 14 degrees Celsius, and a stubborn wind came from the west. From the top of the grassy cliff, Eric was forced to accept that there wasn't going to be a sunrise that morning either. A persistent layer of clouds blocked out the sun, and the time was 06:00 AM when Eric instead turned to face the ocean to the west.

- "It was then that I saw a movement on the surface on the water, and something looking like the tower on an atomic submarine emerged, Eric tells UFO-Sweden. When the object rose from the water I was able to see how three legs were pointing out from the hull. I was also able to see how it was spinning, and how the three legs were pulled in."

Before the legs were pulled in, Eric managed to take his first photograph of the object, and he estimates the distance to the object at the time being about 400 meters. It then dawned on him how exposed his position was. Standing on top of the Ochre Point with the sun right behind him made him an easy target to spot for a possible crew.

- "I had heard of people being abducted by UFOs, so I climbed down a slope nearby. From there I could see how the light-grey object came flying somewhat south of me, and came to a halt over the mine. At that very moment I spotted yet another object, north of the first one. That's when I snapped my second picture, but since the light from the sunrise was straight into my view-finder I moved a little to the left."

While taking photographs from his hideout five meters below the top of the cliff, the new object moved towards the larger one, came to a halt, and then continued upwards, into a deepening in the larger object.

- "I could see three lights on the exterior of the larger object and how it shone around the opening. Shortly after I'd taken the fourth and last photograph the larger object rose straight up and disappeared over me. When that happened, I could feel water dripping from the craft down on me."

In a report form to the Australian UFO-group Australian Flying Saucer Research Society, Eric estimates the size of the object to be 40 meters, and the distance (when he first saw it rise from the ocean) to be 2 kilometres. While talking to him on the phone, Eric tells me how it never got closer to him than 400 metres.

When the incident was over, Eric returned home. However, despite his amazing encounter he decided to remain quiet about it, even to his wife. He first wanted to have the film developed in order to find out if there indeed were any photographs of it. But he was not in a hurry. Before he handed in the film for development he made sure to use up the entire film. And not until May, 1994, when he had watched a UFO show on TV, did he bring forward the photographs.

- "At first he didn't tell me anything since I wasn't feeling well at the time, and later he believed that the photographs weren't going to show anything", Mrs. Thomason says when UFO-Sweden talks to her. "But after he had had the film developed he showed them to me. I'm certain it's a spaceship. Eric is not the lying type, and I believe him."

Quick Stroll

Still, there are several details in his story that are worth pondering. Eric Thomason set his alarm clock to 05:45 in order to catch the sunrise, which took place around 06:00. During these 15 minutes, Mr. Thomason had time to get out of bed, put on several layers of warm clothing, bring his camera, fetch the dog at the back of the house, walk to Ochre Point (which according to Mrs. Thomason takes 5 minutes), climb the 60 meters tall cliff, wait for the failed sunrise, and then walk on to another site close by in order to look out over the ocean. At 06:00 sharp he took his first photograph of the object. The bright blue sky on the first photograph suggests the images were taken later in the day.

In a letter, Eric describes what happened when the photographs were returned from the photo lab: "When the film had been developed I noticed yet another object on the first photograph, which I hadn't seen during the incident itself. A black dot in the distance, halfway between the object and the edge of the photograph, which might have been an airplane several kilometres away, or the smaller object on its way to intercept with the larger one."

Cheap Camera

According to Eric, the negatives were analyzed by Kodak in Adelaide, but he doesn't know anything about the results.
- The negatives were sent in by Mark Tarrot, a "UFO-fanatic". He knows what the results were.

The camera Eric used was a cheap Kodak S50, purchased in a department store for 40 USD. The S50 uses normal 35 mm film, and has never been available on the Swedish market. Its focus is set, and cannot be changed. There are, on the whole, no buttons to push except the shutter release. Cameras of this type are always set on infinitude, and have a large depth of field. And here's where an uncertainty becomes apparent. If you look at the first photograph the object, which supposedly is 400 metres away, is in focus while the horizon is fuzzy. As a matter of fact, both the object and the horizon should be in focus.
That aside, the images agree with Eric's story, and during our entire conversation he answers all my questions correct, even when I try to trap him.

Mr. Thomason's photographs have caused a lot of attention worldwide, and have even ended up in an American UFO almanac.
- "There have been so many people calling, that I'm now starting to get sick of it", Eric says while mentioning how he is very critical to other UFO photographs. "But I've begun looking for them in the evenings while out walking the dog. I know there are UFOs from different planets in the universe. But so far I've only seen meteorites."

Finally I ask Erik Thomason the most important question of them all: Are the photographs really genuine? Do they really depict the object you said emerged from the ocean?
- "Yes, absolutely, he says briefly and adds, OK?" 


This Day In UFO History, May 15, 2005 A Large triangular UFO photographed over Puerto Rico.

This Day In UFO History, May 15, 2015.

Date of historical UFO sighting: May 15, 2005
Location of historical UFO sighting:  Porto Rico
Source: NEXPLICATA; The Journal of Hispanic Ufology-September 15, 2005


The following is a preliminary report of this event in Puerto Rico -- the flight of a large triangular UFO over Puerto Rico. More witnesses to this sighting are coming forward, since there were more people on the avenue when the event took place. We would like any witnesses living in Puerto Rico's Carolina and Urb. Los Angeles districts to please phone us at the following numbers in order to continue our research. At this time only one person has photographed the object, but we are aware that more people saw it, including administrative personnel from the [Luis Munoz Marin International] Airport.

Transcript of the Interview by Willie Durand Urbina and Jose A. Martinez Echevarria with the witness to the triangular UFO seen on May 15, 2005 at 12:16 a.m.

Willie: Hi Wilfredo, please tell us the experience you had when you left work. Wilfredo: Well, it was one night when I left work at around 12 midnight. I was in the town of Carolina near the Los Angeles development, on an avenue exactly facing the airport and beyond Baldorioty [de Castro Avenue], or exactly behind Baldorioty. Then I saw a glow that came from behind a hill and thought it was strange.

Willie: There's a hill there?

Wilfredo: That's right, in the rear. That's when I heard the dogs barking, the birds singing and I saw the animals were becoming desperate. I was frightened. What could it be?

Then when I looked behind me, I saw a great, very large glow. But I couldn't see the craft because I was inside the van. I pulled the van over and got out -- that's when I saw an immense triangular object. I can't give you the exact measurements, can't describe it in meters, but I can tell you [and compare it] to the size of a ball park or two enormous ball parks. It was going very slowly and passed directly over me. Willie: Was it making any noise in particular?

Wilfriedo: None. No sound, just a light coming out of the middle.

Willie: Did you feel any heat, atmospheric changes, or temperature [changes] as the object went by?

Wilfredo: Yes, it seems that the light emitted some sort of heat, I don't know what kind of heat. It was like a high voltage bulb and you could feel the heat of the light. It made no noise whatsoever and was going slowly, very slowly, and thats when the van's engine and lights went out completely. I got inside, tried to turn the engine over, but nothing. Ahh!! But before getting inside, I took my camera phone and tried to take photos of the object, but I had to remove the finder to lower the light intensity, because it couldn't be seen in the photos when I took it. I removed the light intensity from the camera and that's how I managed to capture the craft and photograph it. Then I took another photo from inside my vehicle, and that's strange , because nothing electrical worked, yet the cellphone camera worked. I don't know how, but its as if they wanted me to take a picture. "I'm up here, take a picture!" is what I'm thinking. Then I took the shot and it kept moving. The streetlights went out as it flew overhead, flying over the parking lot and away...

Willie: Did other cars stop as the UFO flew overhead?

Wilfredo: Yes, there were some 3 cars but quite far from where I was. When the UFO went away, my van started up just fine. I even found it strange that the airport was under [the object's path] and its lights also went out. There must be more people there who saw the object too. After passing over the airport it went higher and vanished into the sky at high speed. Willie: Did you see any airplanes at the sighting spot or near it, in the vicinity of the sky?

Wilfredo: I didn't see any other airplanes flying over the area. It was also cloudy. In fact [as the object rose] it was possible to see the clouds very well lit by the object as it ascended. It was so immense that the glow continued lighting up more and more clouds. I looked at this and thought "wow!"

Willie: And it lit up the area you were at?

Wilfredo: Yes, it all looked like noon. It was incredible.

Willie: What residential developments were you facing when you took the photo?

Wilfredo: Urb. Los Angeles.

Willie: Could you give us a point of reference such as shop or other place of business?

Wilfredo: No shop or business as a reference -- it's a very large avenue, the one the intercepts Baldorioty and crosses Los Angeles right in the middle of the development.

Willie: What's the name of that avenue?

Wilfredo: I truly couldn't tell you, but I imagine it has something to do with Urb. Los Angeles Willie: What company was there, at that corner of the section?

Wilfredo: None, but its a major avenue that takes you to the heart of the Los Angeles development. There are houses on either side. In fact the bridge on Baldorioty is an overpass that leads to that avenue.

Willie: In other words, the event occurred near that overpass?

Wilfredo: The event occurred at the overpass?

Willie: Did your car experience any paint alterations or changes?

Wilfredo: The vehicle, well, it was stolen some 3 weeks after the event. No one heard anything. It was an odd robbery -- no one heard anything and my van had a pipe on its muffler that made it heard from far away when the engine was running, but no one heard anything. They took it while I was asleep and no one heard anything.

Willie: Your car was stole from your own home?

Wilfredo: Yes, from my home. It's odd, but some two weeks after the experience, I began noticing that the paint on the car began to show some little spots.

Willie: Were you able to recover the vehicle later?

Wilfredo: No, it was stolen not very long ago, about a month and a half following the UFO experience. Then I realized that nothing could remove those spots, as if the spots were coming from within the paint outward. The stains were blood-red or mud colored that fell on the paint. In desperation, I even applied grease to the paint, but nothing worked to remove the spots. It's as if it was burned and it was throughout the entire vehicle.

Willie: As far as your health is concerned, did you undergo psychological changes after the experience with the object?

Wilfredo: I got sick after the experience. I became ill, don't know if it has anything to do with what I saw.

Willie: How long, or how many days went by before you got sick?

Wilfredo: Two weeks after the experience. I was bedridden. I'd never been so sick. I'm a very healthy person, it's hard for me to get sick and much less bedridden.

Willie: What was diagnosis/ Wilfredo: It was like a cold or something. I felt weak.

Willie: Did they do any blood work to check you corpuscles?

Wilfredo: Yes, but everything was all right in the lab tests?

Willie: Have you felt well after that cold?

Wilfredo: Yes.

Willie: It's odd that your vehicle was stolen.

Wilfredo: Yes. That happened after I spoke to a female co-worker who [claimed] having been abducted by aliens. She told me about her experiences and it turns out that two days after she told me, I felt as though I were being watched. There must be some connection between my co-worker's experience and mine. There must be something.

Willie: Your car's theft must be related to the event. Did you report the theft?

Wilfredo: Yes, I have the report number and everything. It's been two months and still no sign of it.

Willie: What color were the craft's lights?

Wilfredo; It was only a white light, incandescent, in the middle of the object. Its edges had no observable lights, only that central light that covered the entire object. I could see a sort of metal frame, but the light kept me from seeing what was in the middle. Something metallic could be seen at its tips.

Willie: Did it change colors?

Wilfredo: No, no!

Willie: Any interesting details come to mind?

Wilfredo: Of course. When I'm asleep, I feel as though I'm being watched. Willie, it doesn't let me sleep, because I feel myself being watched. It's like a sensation of being spied upon, looked at.

Willie: Well, Wilfredo, anything else you may feel, a strange dream, any other experiences related to your case, please let us know immediately so we can probe deeper into your case. Many thanks for trusting us and for explaining your experience. Thanks for sharing it.
