Noted Dutch artist Aert de Gelder was one of Rembrandt’s most talented students. Studying in his Amsterdam studio from 1661 through 1663, Gelder was a devoted Rembrandt follower which likely provided him unfettered access to the Vatican’s censored and secret artworks and literature. It is believed by many that Gelder may have cleverly revealed this “forbidden knowledge” in some of his paintings, most notably The Baptism of Christ. Painted in 1710, The Baptism of Christ clearly shows a disc-shaped UFO with rays of light emanating onto Jesus below.
Zimbabwe school mass UFO sighting – 62 children independently confirm saucer-shaped UFO and alien sighting
In what is widely considered to be one of the best “close encounter” cases in UFO history, on September 16, 1994, sixty-two children witnessed an extraordinary spectacle on the playground of Ariel School in the small farming community of Ruwa, Zimbabwe. Students ranging in age from 5 to 12 years old, described (and drew) the same scenario – a fleet of alien UFOs, one of which touched down near their school playground, and two “small gray men with thin necks and huge eyes”. Researchers and psychologists, descended on the scene and in the end, ruled that the event “seemed to be what it is”. The children had seen something they could not explain – and it terrified them.
The Maury Island incident – Crisman and Dahl sighting of six UFOs over Maury Island sparks conspiracy and coverup
When it comes to early historical UFO accounts, we often recall the Roswell crash or the Kenneth Arnold sighting, both of which occurred in 1947. Seldom is the 1947 Maury Island incident remembered nor mentioned in publications, and for good reason – many UFO investigators believe the Maury Island incident was a hoax. Regardless of whether or not Harold Dahl and Fred Crisman spotted six UFOs flying above Maury Island in June of 1947, the Maury Island case incorporates several unusually bizarre, but historically proven facts, including the first reported case of government-sponsored “men in black”, two suspicious crashes of airplanes transporting case evidence back to their home base, several shadowy deaths of witnesses and participants, and a historically proven tie-in to the John F. Kennedy assassination.
By 1955, Senator Richard Russell had become one of the most powerful and influential U.S. Senators in modern history. At the time of his death, hewas the most senior member of the Senate. His credibility as a witness is beyond question. In 1955, Senator Russell was dispatched to Russian on a fact-finding mission. It was during this trip, just after 7:00 PM on October 4, 1955, while traveling on a Soviet train, that Senator Russell witnessed a disc-shaped UFO taking off near the railroad tracks.
The Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter (aka Hopkinsville Goblins Case or Kelly Green Men Case) – unsolved since 1955
The Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter, also known as the Hopkinsville Goblins Case or the Kelly Green Men Case, was a series of UFO/alien sightings that took place in the fall of 1955, the most famous and well-publicized of which centered around a rural farmhouse at the time belonging to the Sutton family, which was located between the hamlet of Kelly and the small city of Hopkinsville, both in Christian County, Kentucky. Members of two families at the Sutton farmhouse alleged to have seen unidentifiable creatures and other witnesses attested to lights and disc-shaped objects in the sky (some accompanied by odd sounds). The events that occurred are regarded as one of the most significant, well-known and well-documented cases in the history of UFO incidents, and a favorite for study in ufology, as many other reputable witnesses, including local policemen and state troopers, were witnesses to the events. Even the United States Air Force investigated the mysterious incident.
The years 2012 and 2013 produce a wave of new UFO sightings around the Moon (and the International Space Station) and discoveries of older footage of near-moon sightings, many of which were quite difficult to explain. Outer space sightings are not rare – lunar sightings have been reported by astronomers since the 1700’s and countless tales of UFO sightings by astronauts in space circulated during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Even astronaut Buzz Aldrin once described a UFO that accompanied them in route to the moon in 1969. Of course anyone who believes intelligent extraterrestrial beings have visited our planet would rightly assume that those same beings would take the time to visit and explore our moon too. Here are a series of videos uploaded to YouTube showing UFOs orbiting, approaching, or landing on the Moon.
Project Blue Book was a systematic study of the UFO phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952 through 1970. Its goals were to determine if UFOs were a threat to national security and to scientifically analyze UFO-related data that was collected. Most feel that in the second regard, Project Blue Book was a grave failure. During the course of the project, 12,618 UFO reports were collected. Of those, 701 reports remained “unidentified”.
When big-name scientists, celebrities, or other influential people admit their belief in the UFO phenomena, it’s an eye-opener. When an astronaut, one that has flown an Apollo mission, says that he has inside knowledge that UFOs and aliens are indeed visitors from other planets, well, it’s jaw dropping. That’s exactly what happened in 2008 when Edgar Mitchell, […]
One of the most astounding of documented sightings of aerial phenomena took place on April 4, 1561 at dawn over Nuremberg, Germany. What was described could only be called a war in the heavens, with a wide variety of craft ranging from spheres to spear-like cylinders to crosses and “plates”.
A young Japanese student Masujiro Kiryu, was going through his fathers scrapbook of photographs from the China Campaign, just before World War II, when he discovered a strange cone-shaped object in the sky above a Tsientsien Street.
On March 13, 1997, one of the most massively witnessed UFO sightings occurred in the skies over and around Phoenix, Arizona. Witnessed by thousands of people and photographed by hundreds, there is no doubt that something was seen over the skies of Phoenix that night. The question remains – what did they see?
On December 26, 1980 at approximately 3:00 AM (the original report incorrectly states December 27), two United States Air Force security patrolmen noticed unusual lights outside the back gate. Thinking that an aircraft had crashed, they requested to leave the base to investigate.
In the summer of 1952, Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base became quite alarmed when radar picked up several flying objects over Washington D.C. Even more alarming, coordinates indicated that he objects were flying directly over the White House and the United States Capitol.
On May, 11 1950, in McMinnville, Oregon, Mrs. Trent was in her backyard feeding their rabbits when she noticed a strange object in the overcast sky. In a panic, she ran into the house and called to her husband who was in the kitchen grabbing a bite to eat.
