- RUSSIAN COSMONAUTS CLAIM UFOs ARE REAL
- Cosmonaut Alexandr Baladin stated that "flying saucers"
have come into close proximity to the MIR space station as well as the
Baikonur Cosmodrom. He added there is sufficient evidence to warrant a
scientific study of the phenomenon, and that it is time that world governments
officially acknowledge the UFO phenomenon's existence. "General Vladimir
Ivanov, former commander of Russia's Military Space Forces, recalls that
three objects flew at a considerable altitude over Baikonur Cosmodrome
and were picked up on radar. There is no way they could have been airplanes."
insisted the cosmonaut. Baladin disclosed December 23, 1998, at Brazil's
First International Ufology Forum, that he and fellow cosmonaut Musa Manarov
had seen UFOs. During docking operations between his space capsule and
the MIR, Baladin saw a glowing object a short distance away. Manarov
managed to capture the strange phenomenon on videotape, that was shown
during the UFO congress in Brazil. Baladin claimed that the recording and
other evidence presented during the Congress, "must be studied by
an international scientific commission." Baladin insisted that the
Russian military has a great contribution to make to UFO research, giving
as an example the multiple-witness case at the Kaputsin Yar missile base,
whose personnel sighted a semi-circular object flying at low altitude lighting
up the bases facilities with a powerful searchlight in June 1989. "Many
of my old comrades, who are now working at top-secret military facilities,
acknowledge having seen UFOs. Thanks to Rubén Sobrino.
- NASA UFO VIDEO FOOTAGE
- I have been examining videotape purporting to document
encounters between UFOs and U.S. and Russian spacecraft. One scene shows
the space shuttle just below the Russian space station MIR. Watching these
videos it is difficult to obtain accurate measurements of distance and
size. However, the viewer can see three discoidal shaped objects approach
from the right. Two of the objects appear to fly slowly past the MIR while
a third object slows to a stop and hovers in the vicinity of one of the
solar panel arrays. I'm not certain what these objects are but they do
not appear to be spinning ice crystals or floating shuttle parts. They
seem to create their own light or fireball rather than being a reflection
from the sun. They do not look like space ships depicted in the movies.
However, the exact design of alien space ships traveling in space is apparently
unknown. There is some evidence that they may use advanced nano technology
techniques to shrink the size of their craft. We have numerous eye witness
accounts of a small light coming in from space. Hovering and appearing
to grow from the size of basketball to a large craft. Later they can be
seen shrinking or disappearing altogether. Our scientists are now predicting
we are developing similar technology. You will carry your car around in
your pocket. When your ready to travel you set it down and it grows into
a full sized car. The NASA Shuttle films show numerous strange objects
in space. They may not look the way anyone expects a space ship to appear.
A small object moving through space would theoretically be able to accelerate
and travel at higher speeds using less fuel. A great deal more research
is needed. Thanks to Tom Sheets and ISUR who provided me with the tapes.
- US MILITARY SATELITTES CAN SEE HEAT SOURCES
- The January 10, 2000 issue of "Aviation Week &
Space Technology", page 28, "US Milsats Dodge Y2K" has this
interesting paragraph: "Officials would not comment on Defense Support
Program capabilities, but the satellites probably detected many new 'targets'
-- large fireworks displays -- as the new year's arrival progressed around
the globe. DSP infrared sensors are designed to detect hot, long-burning
events such as missile launches, but can 'see' relatively small heat sources."
Editor's Note: We assume that UFO propulsion systems would provide enough
heat to be present on the satellite images. Space Command admits to picking
up as many as a dozen uncorrelated targets per day, that are unknown targets
not kept in their space data base.
- Note - MUFON's Ron Regehr, with 28 years' experience
working on spy satellites, made some remarkable comments to Jeff about
the objects coming and going from planet Earth which are being picked up
by US infrared imaging satellites. You can hear Ron's interview during
hour three of the 3-2-00 program...in the Archives.
- SENATOR JOHN McCAIN INTERESTED IN UFOs
- William P. LaParl reports that on Fox News, February
29, 2000, at 12:45 PM EST during a live feed: John McCain was just asked
a question about the lawsuit from Peter Gersten to open UFO records from
the military. Before the news people pushed McCain into laughing with them
about "aliens," surprisingly, McCain immediately said he was
"very interested in the subject," and mentioned a series of Arizona
sightings from a couple years ago that remained "unexplained."
Apparently, these were the- Phoenix "V" Lights of March 1997.
