Commander Graham Bethune UFO Sighting
During the Disclosure Project, Commander Bethune (US Navy Ret.) revealed his Flight 124 from Keflavik, Iceland was involved with a near miss of a UFO in 1951, about 300 miles outside of Argentia, Newfoundland, at 49-50 North and 50-03 West.
He states, "I saw a glow on the water and as we
approached this glow, it turned into hundreds of circles of white lights on the water." We watched it for a while; when the lights went out, there was nothing on the water. The next thing that we saw was a yellow halo that was very small, about 15 miles away. It came up to 10,000 feet in a fraction of a second. I disengaged the autopilot and pushed the nose over, because I was going to go under it at the angle that it was coming toward me. The minute that I did that, it was up at our altitude and I could see nothing outside of the cockpit but this craft."
"I didn't know which way to go. Then all of a sudden I heard a racket. I didn't know what it was. And I said: 'What the hell was that?' One of the crewmen looked around and said: 'Everyone was ducking and they collided with each other, and fell on the floor of the plane."
"Then the UFO appeared over to the right, moved out slowly and flew with us. It was not at our altitude, but we could see the shape of it. It was a dome and I could see the coronal discharge. I went back aft, let the other pilot, Al Jones, take my seat, and went to see if the passengers were OK. They had some bumps and bruises. One passenger was a doctor so I went to him first. I said: 'Doc, did you see what we saw?' He looked me straight in the eye and said: 'Yeah, it was a flying saucer.' He said: 'I didn't look at it because I don't believe in such things.' It took me a couple of seconds to realize what he was saying. Being a psychiatrist, he couldn't believe in that kind of thing."
"So I went back to the cockpit and said, 'Al, whatever you do, don't tell anybody we saw anything. They will lock us up as soon as we get on the ground.' He says: 'It's too late. I just called Gander Control in Newfoundland to see if they could track this by radar.' So that's how the story got out."
George Wolkind writes, Paula and I are saddened by the news about Graham Bethune. We both really thought that he was special and he will be missed. He always treated everyone with love and respect. We honor his life and service to his country and his courage to stand up for the truth. He is and always will be the light that will never be extinguished. His wonderful smile that lit up a room now lights up the sky. Thanks to George Wolkind (Delaware Extra Terrestrial Contact support Group} Go in Peace and Love Graham
Moon - UFO Above Lunar Surface
While studying NASA archives of the Apollo 16 Lunar Landing Mission, Robert D. Morningstar has discovered a brilliant and luminous “Sky Object” floating above the lunar horizon in NASA photo AS-16-109-17761[HR].
He states,“The bright luminous object in the Apollo 16 photograph taken from the lunar surface caught my attention immediately.
First, due to its brightness as no stars are visible in the picture. Secondly, even before enlarging and enhancing the photo, the above lunar surface ‘Sky Object’, as I have dubbed it, appeared to be distinctly triangular and not circular as one would expect a star to be if it were visible, for example, Sirius.
However, I know that due to the extreme brightness of the lunar surface, the apertures of Apollo’s cameras had to be set to very small iris settings in order not to ‘wash out’ images in the photos. This explains why no stars (except the sun) are seen in Apollo mission photos taken from the lunar surface. Snip. Thanks to

Proof of Historic ALIEN Artifacts
TV’s Ghost Hunters expand their work going from spirit world to the Alien debate discovering. The November issue of TAPS Paramagazine is reporting the existence of ancient Chinese Neolithic Art depicting Aliens, which if further testing concludes their age, debunks the debunkers who believe aliens are a modern creation.
The Magazine says it has acquired one of four known pieces of the ancient art. “Right now we have a lot of opinions on its age. Is it hundreds of years old or thousands is the question?” said Steve Gonsalves, a founder of the magazine and one of the SciFi channel’s Ghost Hunters. “We will be conducting scientific examinations to try and date it - to determine its age beyond any doubts.” Paramag’s artifact is believed to be from the Hongshan Culture, which existed from c. 3500-2200 B.C. According to Hongshan expert Gunter Fabisch, the Hongshan Jades, which are between 4,200 and 5,500 years old, come in three main categories: animal and insects, sexual forms, and lastly, strange alien-like beings, with horns or antennae, large oblong eyes, and sometimes even helmets.
“The abundance of alien-like motifs and figurines is quite surprising, as they are not found in other Neolithic Cultures. The Hongshan Jades exhibit advanced shaping and it is theorized the carving tools used may have been made from meteorite material,” according to Fabisch, who believes the Paramag relic is authentic. The Paramag purchased the relic from a respected Chinese museum house known for retailing antique vases and artifacts many of which sell for more than $150,000. Museum officials said the alien dubbed “Dropa” was purchased by them from a respected German dealer. The museum house describes the carving as a “fine piece of Neolithic art” which dates back to 3000 BC. The museum put the item for sale on E-Bay with its pottery offering a lifetime guarantee of its authenticity. It was spotted by TAPS PARA MAG staff who in researching the Dropa decided in the interests of paranormal research, that acquiring the “relic” was of paramount importance.
“We still need a scientific verification of the date to prove or disprove the relic’s true age,” said TAPS cofounder Jason Hawes who begrudgingly agreed to the purchase. “We want more than informed opinions and more than the seller’s guarantee of authenticity.” TAPS cofounder Grant Wilson, also of Ghost Hunters, says there is a chance that the item is not as old as the sellers contend, despite the certificate of authenticity and the verification by Fabisch. Antique experts from several large firms told the Paramag that jade is difficult to date. Always suspicious of other’s claims, the Ghost Hunters say whatever the outcome of the findings, purchasing the relic, has already expanded the known knowledge of the alien phenomena. “We know it is imperfect and its backside does show some significant aging, while its front is well preserved except for a few chips on its lips and ears. It is a really interesting piece, ” said Wilson. The magazine, based in Fall River, Massachusetts, is subscription based and mailed across the globe. It can be purchased at tapsparamag.com. The Ghost Hunters appear on Wednesday nights on the Sci Fi channel. On Halloween night they will be investigating for six hours live at the Stanley Hotel in Colorado. The Stanley inspired Stephen King’s, the Shining. For interview requests email [email protected]
Astronaut Photography of Earth Shows UFOs
Steve Tobias is collecting NASA photos from the shuttle missions. He writes, "Almost every photo in the NASA archives has UFOs in it.
UFO formations regularly follow the shuttles.
On Shuttle flight STS-69, photo #719 032 was taken on September 14, 1995. In the main photo the obvious puzzle is that on the earth rim horizon clearly very white objects are seen, white spheres, when all around the lower clouds are darkened, and not all white due to haze and elements in atmosphere. To my thinking, it is obvious that the spheres are clearly seen.
The white spheres are pure white since they are light emanating from UFOs, artificial light radiant energy to camouflage themselves into our earth atmosphere, to hide, to conceal themselves.

Prince Philip and Royal Family Believe in UFOs
Prince William is the newest member of the Royal Family to become obsessed with researching space aliens, keeping alive a family precedent started in the 1950's by his grandfather, Prince Philip, a serious UFO believer, and continued by William's father, Prince Charles, whose airplane was buzzed by a mysterious UFO in 1986, raising many royal eyebrows. Prince William, the young heir to the British throne and Princess Diana's oldest son, is said to be star struck by Michael C. Luckman's controversial book, "Alien Rock: The Rock 'n' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection" featuring many rock stars. Prince Philip has been an avid reader of Flying Saucer Review, a highly respected UFO magazine, since the 1950's.
According to private visitors, Prince Philip kept a map on his office wall in Buckingham Palace indicating UFO hot spots. But it was a face to face encounter that Prince Philip's equerry reportedly had with a space alien named "Janus" that caused by far the biggest royal uproar. Air Marshall Peter Horsley, an intimate adviser to Queen Elizabeth, said that in 1954 he met a visitor from another galaxy and spoke to him for hours about space travel, and the possible role of Prince Philip in curing the environment.. The former RAF chief published his startling book, "Sounds From Another Room."
RAF jets sent up to investigate an unearthly visitor at Balmoral Castle in 1996 were unable to shoot down the spacecraft. A red UFO similar to the one that chased Prince Charles' plane in 1986 on a flight from the United States was observed a week later by eyewitnesses over Windsor Castle.
A close friend of Princess Diana, Francis Hamilton Stidston, reported that a flying saucer left behind its calling card in a field behind her home in South Devon, in 1991--a scorched circle 75 feet in diameter. Princess Diana had a distinct taste for the paranormal Chillingly, Diana predicted her own untimely death in a car crash ten months before it happened--an event that sent shockwaves around the world. As fate would have it, Glenda Line told a local newspaper that she saw a huge bright light in the sky above Alshorp the night before Princess Diana's funeral in 1997. "I said at the time that it was Diana's star," she said. Thanks to Michael C. Luckman
Sonya writes: "Just a small correction: Prince William is Heir Presumptive, not Heir Apparent to our Throne. Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth's eldest son, is next in line and so is 'apparently' going to inherit the crown, and his eldest son, Prince William is 'presumed' to inherit it after his father." Thanks to Sonya.

Arkansas White Disk
Anchorage -- A large shiny white disk was spotted hovering at 14:30 hours in the afternoon sky on Saturday, September 30, 2006. The witness says, “While working in my backyard, I looked up and saw a shiny white disk shaped object above a jet contrail at an altitude of 30 to 40 thousand feet.” At first I thought it was a small plane, but after I continued to work and then looked up again it was still in the same area, so I knew it was not moving. After watching it awhile longer I called my husband to come see the strange object and he brought his 9x power binoculars to view the object. It was large and pure shiny white in a disk shape. We observed the shiny disk hover in place then move west then east then back. At this point the jet contrail was gone and the disk was the only thing in a clear blue sky. I had watched it for almost 30 minutes before it just suddenly disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Lancaster -- I was taking pictures of the clouds from my yard, when I saw a disc shaped object hovering in front of the clouds on October 3, 2006, at 7:30 PM. I was trying to figure out what it was when it shot to the left a short distance then straight up on a 90 degree angle. Then it moved back to the right, and I took a picture. Before I could take another, it moved straight up and out of sight. It was gray in color, and the sighting lasted about 3 to 5 minutes. The day was bright with high clouds, and little wind. This is the second sighting within a week. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Modesto -- R. David Anderson reports, "This past weekend, I was in the back yard relaxing on a chaise lounge. I had my eyes closed and was about to nod off to sleep, when I suddenly snapped back to consciousness and immediately saw a bright orange object in the sky towards the south. I stared at it for about three minutes, and it moved north until it was almost directly above me. I ran into the garage and got out the binoculars. I watched the object through the binoculars for at least five minutes as it just hovered above. It seemed to change shape from a sphere to a diamond shape, then to a cylinder. I ran into the house and got my camera, and came out and took four pictures of the object. The UFO now began to move back towards the South, after having completed a full 180 degree turn. Altogether, the object was visible for over 15 minutes, and it took this long for it to complete this course trajectory. The object appeared around 6 and was gone by 6:15 PM. The UFO traveled contrary to the wind direction. Report and Photos by R. David Anderson http://www.mysteryportals.com/
Illinois Diamond Shaped Craft
Joliet -- My brother, his girlfriend, and I witnessed a diamond shaped craft that was hovering about a half mile away from us on September 30, 2006, around 10 PM. At that distance it appeared as a red-whitish light. After 3 to 4 minutes of hovering, the craft began to move slowly in our direction. It came to within 1000 feet of us about 100 feet high. At this time the distinct lights on the craft were clearly visible. There were red rectangle lights in a cross pattern on the bottom along with many white lights.
The craft was small and I would think only one or two people could travel in the craft. The thing I was most amazed with was the absence of sound. After it passed us, my brother and I tried to run with it to get a longer look. The craft was traveling 30-40 mph, so needless to say, we did not keep up with it very long. We lost track of it in the neighborhood. At 27, 26, and 24 years of age, it was the most amazing thing we have ever witnessed. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Iowa Zig Zagging Lights
Algona -- My fiancé and I were out looking at stars on October 1, 2006, about six miles north of town when we noticed what at first seemed to be an airplane flying in zigzag patterns. A total of six people saw two flying lights in the sky, at 5 PM. We watched it go up and down and kind of in a loop as lights on it flashed red, white and green. We watched this for ten minutes when my fiancé looked to the west to let his eyes adjust and saw that there was one in the same position in the western sky.
We each watched the objects for about ten more minutes then I called his brother who was with a friend so they could come see it. In the meantime, the objects continued their patterns of zigzagging and going up and down. Soon, two other friends showed up from doing farm work and they saw them. At this point we had been watching for about half an hour. Then my fiancé’s brother and friend showed up and saw what was happening as well. We all watched for close to another 20 minutes, at which point the western object seemed to be getting farther away to the west and the eastern object was lessening its movements. We are all "farm people." As of 8:06 PM they were still visible in the sky. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
Grand Rapids -- Standing in the front yard, four of us watched a silver cigar shaped craft move slowly across the sky on October 6 2006, at 5:30 PM, and suddenly pick up speed and vanish. Two of my children, myself and my neighbor were looking north at the sky and noticed a cigar-shaped, shiny object that appeared to be very high up (about where an airplane would fly). It seemed to move very slowly and left no smoke trail behind it. It also seemed to be moving sideways. Then it suddenly picked up speed and disappeared in a flash. I have never seen anything like this before and I have no background having anything to do with UFOs.
Eagle -- Patty Donahue writes, I just downloaded some pictures I had taken October 12, 2006 at 7:53 AM on a cloudy morning. I have something in them. This "energy-object?"..."ufo?"...reminds me of the one I had sent you a picture of a while back...and you had put it in Filers Files. "New" Series of the "New" Pictures...for comparison shows a cross shaped object in the sky that changes to a single line.
Here is a zoomed/cropped version. Thanks to Patty Donahue
Nevada Diamond Like Space Ship
Fallon -- My brother and I were outside on a bike ride on Meadow Glen Drive on October 27, 2006, on our way to our Uncle's house when my brother noticed something flying really slow. We had thought it was just an airplane until I noticed it looked like a diamond and had no wings. It was a grayish blue color and flying real slow. It got real close to us and flew to our right. It was fast with these movements until it was away from us. That's when it went slow again. My brother screamed and we pedaled really fast to get to our Uncle's house. We were scared and we wanted to get away as fast as possible. We lost sight of the object when we got to our Uncle's. He had come outside to see what was going on and we went to show him and it was gone. Thanks to MUFON
New Jersey Cross With Yellow Emblem
Flemington – On October 1, 2006, at 12 AM, a plane shaped object with a yellow emblem was seen flying low to the ground by a student. It was shaped like an origami bird and rear of the plane had a tail that bent down and the wings bent down and out as well. The front was like a normal plane but more curved than pointed. It was silver and had a yellow emblem in the bottom corner in the back of the plane. The emblem did not have words, it was more of a scribbling. It had no windows. It was about 100 feet off the ground and it was flying at that level for a long time and did not go higher. I am not sure of the length or height of the plane but it was very close to the ground so what I saw was big. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
New Mexico Flying Triangle Spotted
Las Cruces -- I am not an astronomer by any means, but I do know a few of the constellations and enjoy looking at them on clear evenings. As I was sitting in my hot tub on September 30, 2006, the sky was extremely clear. I looked up at Pleiades and then straight down to the Belt of Orion. What I saw right between the two was a giant triangle consisting of what looked like five stars. The thing was about 2/3 the size of the dipper cup.
In all the years I have been looking at the stars I do not remember ever seeing a triangle in this area of the sky. I have even taken college level astronomy and no mention was ever made about this. I ran in the house and looked up the sky charts in the Night Watch book by Terence Dickinson. No triangle is supposed to be there. What made it even stranger is that as the earth rotated, the triangle did not match the speed and location of the other stars. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
LORDSBURG – Almost once a week Benjie Medina sends me a CD full of UFO videos. Benjie Medina writes, "All summer we have had a great deal of UFO activity going on day and night near the Mexican border that my friend Ramon Ortiz is capturing on video. On September 15, 2006, we had a UFO flotilla over our area." Thanks to Benjie Medina and Ramón Ortiz.
New York Photos of a UFO
Manhattan -- We were taking photos for my roommate’s father on our roof for his birthday on October 2, 2006, at 5 PM, when I noticed a strange craft hovering and slowly moving over Manhattan. I have been involved in aircraft all my life and upon noticing this craft I was immediately shocked. It was a cloud shape form, very obscure yet with a flat and rotating movement to it. It was not a cloud, it was in front of the clouds at sunset. It began to change shape and move all the while changing in color due to the sun. We took nine photographs of the object as it changed shape and moved across the city. It turned at amazing angles then conformed into a ball and shot straight up into the sky. It flew from a low altitude to the outreach of space in a matter of seconds. Six minutes after the sighting a strange large black aircraft began to move in the general direction of the craft. The photos are very strange and show an amazing object. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director http://www.ufocenter.com/
