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.
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.
On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold saw something that would not only change his life forever, but his experience also served as a catalyst for our modern UFO craze. His report after seeing nine unidentified flying objects, is generally considered to be the first widely reported UFO sighting in the United States.
On November 29, 1989, Belgium citizens, including several large groups of people and three groups of police officers, reported seeing a large triangular shaped craft flying at low altitude over the Belgium countryside. The sighting was followed by a month-long wave of UFO sightings.
In 2009, a light was spotted in the skies above Norway that made other glowing-light UFO sightings pale by comparison. Called the “Norwegian spiral anomaly” or “Star Gate”, the UFO was visible to thousands of awe-struck Norwegians and photographed extensively, from Norway to Sweden. The event occurred on December 9, 2009 and lasted from 2-3 minutes (some sources say it lasted up to 10 minutes). It consisted of a blue beam of light that came from behind a mountain with a grayish spiral-shaped hue of light emanating from it.
