U.F.O.s are a hotly debated topic, or a least they’ve become one in a society that is eager to find out if we’ve ever been visited by beings, not from Earth.
Countless declassified documents have revealed that governments have kept a close eye on unidentified aerial phenomena for decades, and spent millions of dollars while studying strange lights in the sky.
In this article, we bring you twenty compelling facts about Unidentified Flying Objects that will immerse you into ufology like never before.
Declassified U.F.O. Documents. Despite the fact that governments around the world have ignored studying or even believe in U.F.O.s, a plethora of recently declassified documents tell an entirely different story.
We now know that the American Government (for example) has spent millions of dollars on studying flying objects that defy our very understanding of physics.
Official Video footage of Pilots Chasing a U.F.O. When speaking about U.F.O.’s and little green men, people want evidence. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. This footage may very well be just that.
Not long ago, the U.S. State Department declassified a video recording filmed by a Boeing warplane F/A-18F Super Hornet. In the video, we see a U.F.O. flying at high speed, to the pilot’s disbelief.
Video Footage, the best evidence. The above video filmed by the F/A-18F Super Hornet isn’t the only video where we can see a U.F.O. In fact, there are quite a few videos out there that challenge our very understanding of the subject.
The so-called STS-75 Tether Incident is perhaps one of the best videos out there.
The Pentagon Studied “Exotic U.F.O. Tech.” Despite the fact that Space agencies and governments around the world have not acknowledged the existence of U.F.O.s, declassified documents reveal ‘exotic’ technology has been studied by governments.
In fact, the Pentagon’s secret program on U.F.O.s performed a number of investigations into “exotic, futuristic technologies.” This startling fact was revealed in a letter from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to William Lynn III, Deputy Secretary of Defense.
The documents relating to the investigation of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) clearly state that the United States has carried our secretive studies of ‘technologies’ that could allow them greater military control over other nations.
Official Documents Reveal Antarctic U.F.O. Encounters. Antarctica has been heavily connected with U.F.O. Sightings and paranormal phenomenon. Countless conspiracy theories see Antarctica as a hot-spot for the paranormal.
And while certain conspiracy theories may be nothing more than just that, there are a number of strange details about mysterious encounters that took place on Antarctica.
In 1965, scientists from three different Antarctic research stations reported seeing U.F.O.s in the region. Numerous official reports were published about the encounter: two from the FACh (Chilean Air Force) and two other released by the Argentine Navy. The British Antarctic Survey (B.A.S.) also published a report.
Dated October 22, 1965, the letter written by a researcher from the B.A.S. reads:
On the July 12 this year the British Antarctic Survey Base on Deception Island (62° 59′ S, Long. 60° 34′ W) reported the following, which I quote as requested:
“Argentine base (on Deception Island observed a moving colored light on June 7th, 20th, and July 3. Chilean base (also on Deception) made similar observations on the latter two dates. Flickering red-green-yellow light observed from British Base 2300 Z July 2 die north; it had moved in two waves quickly from the west then reversed along the course for a short distance before returning again to the north where it remained stationary for about 20 minutes.”
I think I should comment that our people in the Antarctic did not consider the important event enough to comment until asked. I requested information because of pressure from the B.B.C., N.B.C,. and the Press who were acting on a news report put out from Argentina.
The C.I.A. alone declassified and published thousands of U.F.O. documents. The fact that government agencies have studied U.F.O.s is no surprise. But the interest taken by some agencies in the U.F.O. phenomenon is quite surprising. The Central Intelligence Agency has declassified thousands of U.F.O. documents to the public.
According to the C.I.A.’s library:
This collection catalogs C.I.A. information on this subject from the 1940s through the early 1990s.
Most of the documents concern C.I.A. cables reporting unsubstantiated U.F.O. sightings in the foreign Press and intra-agency memos about how the Agency handled public inquiries about U.F.O. sightings. For the most recent C.I.A. information on U.F.O.s, see the article “C.I.A.’s Role in the Study of U.F.O.s, 1947-90” at the Center for the Study of Intelligence website (https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/index.html). See On-line Publications / the “Studies in Intelligence” section, specifically semi-annual Edition #1, 1997.
U.F.O.’s aren’t a modern phenomenon. On April 14, 1561, people living in modern-day Nuremberg witnessed a massive U.F.O. sighting.
The event was so significant that the local newspaper gave the following description of the events over the city:
“In the morning of April 14, 1561, at daybreak, between 4 and 5 a.m., a dreadful apparition occurred on the sun, and then this was seen in Nuremberg in the city, before the gates, and in the country – by many men and women. At first, there appeared in the middle of the sun, two blood-red semi-circular arcs, just like the moon in its last quarter. And in the sun, above and below and on both sides, the color was blood, there stood a round ball of partly dull, partly black ferrous color. Likewise, there stood on both sides and as a torus about the sun such blood-red ones and other balls in large number, about three in a line and four in a square, also some alone. In between these globes, there were visible a few blood-red crosses, between which there were blood-red strips, becoming thicker to the rear and in the front malleable like the rods of reed-grass, which were intermingled, among them two big rods, one on the right, the other to the left, and within the small and big rods there were three, also four and more globes. These all started to fight among themselves, so that the globes, which were first in the sun, flew out to the ones standing on both sides, thereafter, the globes standing outside the sun, in the small and large rods, flew into the sun. Besides, the globes flew back and forth among themselves and fought vehemently with each other for over an hour. And when the conflict in and again out of the sun was most intense, they became fatigued to such an extent that they all, as said above, fell from the sun down upon the earth ‘as if they all burned’ and they then wasted away on the Earth with immense smoke. After all this there was something like a black spear, very long and thick, sighted; the shaft pointed to the east, the point pointed west. Whatever such signs mean, God alone knows. Although we have seen, shortly one after another, many kinds of signs on the heaven, which are sent to us by the almighty God, to bring us to repentance, we still are, unfortunately, so ungrateful that we despise such high signs and miracles of God. Or we speak of them with ridicule and discard them to the wind, in order that God may send us a frightening punishment on account of our ungratefulness. After all, the God-fearing will by no means discard these signs, but will take it to heart as a warning of their merciful Father in heaven, will mend their lives and faithfully beg God, that He may avert His wrath, including the well-deserved punishment, on us, so that we may temporarily here and perpetually there, live as his children. For it, may God grant us his help, Amen. By Hanns Glaser, letter-painter of Nurnberg”. (Source: Colman S.

One of the first U.F.O. reports in America. The very first ‘official’ mention of Unidentified flying objects in North America can be traced back to the years 1639. The event took place near the city of Boston. John Winthrop, governor of the Massachusetts colony wrote in his personal diary that in March of that year, inexplicable lights filled the sky, and several people reported losing the track of time.
U.F.O. in Northern Saskatchewan. A declassified document dating back to 1968 details a mysterious U.F.O. spotted in Northern Saskatchewan.
The letter reveals that “Examination revealed the exhibit had likely formed part of a vehicle that traveled in outer space.”
The letter explains how in October of 1968, a J. Hodges, regional representative of the Associate Committee on Meteorites of the National Research Council of Canada was handed a miniature metal fragment that had been discovered by an unnamed pilot of the CDL (Crime Detection Laboratory.)
The strange metallic object was discovered in the Wollaston Lake area, around 450 miles from Prince Albert, near the Manitoba border.
