Ten Nuclear Warheads Shut Down by Alleged UFO Activity

AARO receives unbelievable testimony from US Air Force Veterans on close encounters and UFOs disabling missiles.


The UFO topic has greatly evolved over the years. In 2023, UFOs are no longer a fringe theory, and scientists, governments, and the military are finally giving the phenomenon well-deserved attention. Having this said, now that UFOs are no longer considered a conspiracy, it is important to reconsider UFO reports from the past, and what better UFO reports to reanalyze than claims of UFOs interfering with Nuclear missiles?

Over the years, many claims have been made that UFOs have been involved in disarming nuclear weapons. These claims are often made by military personnel who say they witnessed UFOs hovering over nuclear missile sites or nuclear-armed aircraft, after which the weapons suddenly became inoperable. One of the most famous incidents occurred in 1967 at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. According to reports, a UFO was seen hovering over the base, and several nuclear missiles suddenly became non-functional.

UFOs and missiles are still a mystery

The US government has never officially acknowledged any such incidents, and skeptics have pointed out that there could be many other explanations for malfunctions of nuclear weapons systems, such as equipment failure or human error. However, some UFO researchers believe these incidents could be evidence of extraterrestrial interference in human affairs. And while these claims were made years ago, recently, Former US Air Force intercontinental ballistic missile launch officer Robert Salas spoke out about the events once again, but this time to the US Government All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office – or AARO.

The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) is a new organization established by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) in February 2021. AARO aims to enhance the military’s ability to identify and respond to anomalous events that occur across various domains, including land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace.


AARO is a centralized hub for collecting and analyzing data from various sources, including sensors, satellites, and other platforms. The organization uses advanced analytics to identify patterns and anomalies that could indicate potential threats to national security.

New investigations

AARO, allegedly investigating UFO sightings near Nuclear missile sites, has received official statements from former officials that UFOs have been active around nuclear sites on several occasions and that these mysterious aerial vehicles have switched off at least ten nuclear warheads in the past. One such event is believed to have occurred while former ballistic missile launch officer Salas was on duty at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana in 1967.

Salas revealed that an orange disc-shaped object flew and hovered above the base. Agents interviewed Salas and other officers from the Air Force Office of Special investigations in the past, and they were made to sign non-disclosure agreements. However, Salas and his fellow offices were approached by investigators as part of an ongoing governmental study into more than 500 UFO sightings by military personnel dating back as far as the 1940s.

Video evidence?

In addition to Salas, former US Air Force officer Dr. Robert Jacobs spoke to investigators about a 35mm film he recorded in 1964. The alleged video shows a flying saucer shooting down a dummy missile over the test range. Jacobs was the officer in charge of the telescope camera team filming missile launches at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.


According to reports, a disk-shaped object flew up to one of the missiles, shot a series of laser beams at the missile, and eventually disappeared into the sky. Per the Mirror, the former lieutenant, who is now 84 years of age, said: “We watched the third stage burn out, and into the frame came something else. It flew into the frame and shot a beam of light at the missile.”
