UFO News Article:
“Cops Spot ‘Object’ In Sky”


November (probably) 1957
(Unknown newspaper)

Source: NICAP.org

Quote from the article:
“Two experienced Illinois state troopers reported seeing a ‘brilliant flying object’ near Danville and following it about 15 miles.

Lt. John Henry, Urbana state police district, said the troopers described the object as brilliant white when they first saw it. It then changed during the chase to an amber color and then to bright orange.

The object, brighter and larger than a star, was described as ‘traveling at a terrific rate of speed.’

The state police car sighted the object while responding to reports of its appearance by citizens in the sector north of Danville.

Earlier, Lt. Henry said, a farmer near Longview reported a ‘flying saucer’ had landed in his field.”

The case is an E-M (electromagnetic) interference case. Radio communication between the troopers, Calvin Showers and John Matulis, and police headquarters malfunctioned during the incident. The radio communication functioned perfectly both before and after the UFO was sighted, according to the article.

The article can be found on Page 15.

UFO Report:
“1957 Sighting Wave Chronology:
Close Encounters and Nuclear Connections”


Created: 5 February 2006, Updated 18 June 2017 
(as of 7 November 2017)
(NICAP.org)

Quote from the report:
“2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the wave of 1957. This is an extensive report on an on-going project involving a number of people. I would not have been able to do this without the help of Rebecca Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive case researcher), Jean Waskiewicz (NICAP Database), Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns),  Barry Greenwood (newspaper clippings), Mark Rodegher (‘UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference’ [441 Cases], Loren Gross (UFOS A History), and Joan Woodward (Animal Reaction Database).

A major sighting wave year, 1957 is best-known for the Levelland, Texas sightings which began on Nov. 2. However, the key cases are the IFF electronic signaling and radar-emitting UFO cases such as RB-47 (July 17) and several others within a week or two before and after, the radioactivity case at Montville, Ohio (Nov. 6) and the nuclear weapons storage area case at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico (Nov 4), all cases of supreme scientific value. Prior to the wave flap, the Sept 20, 1957 radar tracking caused a White House and top intelligence alert. A very important year in UFOlogical history. Throughout this summary are posted key reports from the highly-acclaimed publication, ‘UFOs & Government.’ ”

NICAP.org also presents fourteen binders of newspaper clippings from 1957 on this web page!

I first reported about the UFO report on 8 July 2011.

UFO Article:
“UFOs Took Control of ICBMs, says
Retired USAF Missile Security Supervisor”


By Robert L. Hastings, 3 November 2017
(The UFO Chronicles, 6 November 2017)

Quote from the article:
“Since 1973, I have interviewed more than 160 former or retired U.S. Air Force personnel regarding incidents involving UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those individuals participated in my September 27, 2010 press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live.

Retired USAF Technical Sergeant Thomas E. Johnson recently emailed me and said:

I was a Flight Security Supervisor (FSS) for the Minuteman missiles at Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota, from May 1973 until December 1978. We had an incident around 1977, when strange lights took over our missiles. You may already have this data, so I won’t go into it deeper. I just wanted to confirm that these incidents were happening.

I responded to Mr. Johnson, asking him to send me his DD214 military service record and further requesting to speak with him on the phone; he readily agreed to both.”

UFO Report:
“Subject: The Robertson Panel, 1953;
A brief Summary”


By Francis L. Ridge, 24 March 2006
(NICAP.org)

Quote from the report:
“The Robertson Panel first met formally on January 14, 1953 under the direction of Howard Percy Robertson. He was a physicist, a CIA employee and director of the Defense Department Weapons Evaluation Group.

Other panel members were respected scientists and military personnel who had worked on other classified military projects or studies. All were then skeptical of UFO reports, though to varying degrees:

Louis Alvarez, physicist (and later, a Nobel Prize winner)
Frederick C. Durant, missile expert
Samuel A. Goudsmit, Brookhaven National Laboratories physicist
Thornton Page, astrophysicist, deputy director of Johns Hopkins Operations Research Office.
Lloyd Berkner, physicist and J. Allen Hynek, astronomer, were associate panel members.

The Robertson Panel’s official report concluded that 90 percent of UFO sightings could be readily identified with meteorological, astronomical, or natural phenomena, and that the remaining 10 percent of UFO reports could, in all likelyhood, be similarly explained with detailed study. It was suggested that witnesses had misidentified bright stars and planets, meteors, auroras, mirages, atmospheric temperature inversions, and lenticular clouds; other sightings were judged as likely misinterpretation of conventional aircraft, weather balloons, birds, searchlights, kites, and other phenomena.

Furthermore, the Panel suggested the Air Force should begin a ‘debunking’ effort to reduce ‘public gullibility’ and demystify UFO reports. The panel suggested a public relations campaign, using psychiatrists, astronomers and assorted celebrities to significantly reduce public interest in UFOs. It was also recommended that the mass media be used for the debunking, including influential media giants like Walt Disney Corporation.

Their formal recommendation stated ‘That the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the Unidentified Flying Objects of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired.’ ”

UFO News Article:
“UFO SIGHTED IN CASTLE ROCK”


4 January 1968
(Douglas County News (News-Press?), Castle Rock, Colorado)

Source: ufonewspaper.blogspot.com

The whole article:
“Howard Ellis has reported seeing an egg-shaped, translucent bubble hovering about 30 feet over a power line near the I. R. E. A. building about 6:00 o’clock Tuesday evening, January 2, 1968. He summoned several other parties who also saw the object. He shone his flashlight up toward it and immediately lights came on either in or on it.

It then proceeded on across the way to a little above the courthouse, then after a short time it went on to hover over Naylor’s Market, where, according to some witnesses, it emitted a series of flames and shot straight up, out of sight.”
