About Flying Saucers, Aliens, and Trends in UFO Sightings

Updated on July 3, 2018

Flying Saucers Or Alien Spaceships?

Theories put forward by scientists are more credible and acceptable to most of us than theories generated as a result of mere speculation, as scientists always follow a logical system of deducing, based on available evidence alone.

Scientists believe that when large quantities of dust in the atmosphere gets trapped by air currents up there, and when other conditions interact, a whirlpool effect is created.

When this occurs the dust particles concentrate in the center, giving the illusion of disc-like objects flying around.

They go on to say that multiple images could be formed creating an impression of "alien spaceships" flying in formation.

An Unidentified Flying Object At Last!

The only time I ever spotted a flying saucer happened dozens and dozens of years ago.

It was saucer shaped for a few fleeting moments only. Mind you, it happened in broad daylight.

The unidentified flying object was circling, slowly, and the diameter of each circle it traversed was less than the diameter of the previous one. It was apparently zeroing in to the center.

Continued focus revealed that it's shape was not round. Aided by an optical instrument it did not take too long for me to realize that it had wings ... and a beak as well!

Alien Spaceship? My Foot!

It was a terrible blow to me! Especially because the next day's newspapers will not carry the heading "Fifteen Year Old Spots Flying Saucer"

Instead the heading would read "Fifteen Year Old Spots Hawk!" And that kind of news would hardly generate any specific interest at all.

What's the big deals anyway? Even a five year old can spot a hawk! I was really disappointed! But how on earth did it appear to be round initially? It was my imagination of course.

Being conditioned to hearing reports of flying "saucers," is what makes everything in the sky which is not an aeroplane or helicopter appear round at first, and also conveniently unidentifiable.

Latest UFO Sightings - The New Trend Catches On!

Reports coming in from various corners of the world from time to time have all had some sort of consistency most of the time, of course with some exceptional cases where the fictitious elements are easily identifiable.

As in all other fields, fiction tries to creep in at every level and this topic is definitely not less conducive for that kind of thing.

From a different perspective, if some loons get set in spreading ideas that flying saucers, whilst retaining the generic name of saucers, need not necessarily be round in shape, that they could even be shaped like a heart, or a diamond, or a spade, then before long, confirmed reports will come flooding in from all parts of the world that "saucers" shaped like diamonds, hearts, spades, hammers, sickles, and jukeboxes have been spotted!

Reported UFO Sightings

These strange things that have been hovering above our heads for centuries have caused a lot of concern amongst many.

Fear, awe, curiosity and superstition have been woven into explanations originating from many lands and in several languages.

Even drawings of spacemen and spacecrafts have been discovered in ancient caves. Nobody knows what they really are. Most probably they are from a different time and space.

The questions asked are, why do they not land on earth and attempt to make communication? From which part of the universe are they?

Are there many locations in the universe from which they come? If their technology is so very highly evolved, don't they pose a threat to all of us?

So far space exploration has not yielded any solid clues to the origins of these beings, their tasks, their technology, their schedules and so on.

The Future - NASA And Intelligent Life

The role played by NASA in conquering space, the highlight of which being the historic moon landing, certainly did brighten up the future of the denizens of this planet.

If intelligent life does exist on other planets, one would wonder how intelligent they would be.

Would they be intelligent enough to understand the great benefits of peace ... universal peace ... or will they just fall short and consider hostilities towards their fellow occupants of the universe?

Will the very same intelligence that they use to harness the laws of nature and defy gravity, and construct vehicles capable of transporting them through space and probably through time too ... will that very same intelligence be supportive of peace or of conquest?

Surely we would not know. All we could do is to wait ... wait and see.

... waiting

      I think I saw a flying saucer or some such thing in the night sky as I was driving. There was a full moon. I saw this object with a blinking light like a plane but it was moving too fast and seemed to make an abrupt turn and went in another direction. I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

      While scientists might seem as too harsh regarding UFOlogy in general, that's not entirely true. Scientists follow stricter reasoning methods in order to come up with theories which are of acceptable standards, but they do not deny per se the possible existence of alien life or the feasibility of interstellar travel. Just read about SETI, exobiology or Prof. Alcubierre's metrics on a possible warp drive for FTL travel and all the papers actually confirming his calculations (this is now a well-accepted theory on interstellar travel-grade propulsion systems). Sicentists are indeed in a very real race to get out there.

      . My God I could barely believe what I just witnessed but I did. There were other incredible things that she talked about and some of it happened after I got home in the evening. That whole experience was nothing more than an affirmation for what I knew to be true and was told as much. I was shown how much more exists than people generally accept and that science and the creator actual go together. It is OK with me if you think I lost my marbles, I can assure you that is not the case. Everything that I have said about my experiences are true and would give my life rather than deny it, you may not agree with the conclusions that is you own free will.

      For the first time in my life after going to Angel University, the pieces fit, the encounter, what angels are, the death experience. I have met an earth angel and will do my best to Condemn war, greed, anger, environmental destruction, give protection to the helpless, deception, the list goes on, for example a two mile thick brown cloud make up of polluted particles is now threatening the planet, I suggest you type in “BROWN CLOUD” on your computer to view this as seen from space and remember what the earth looked like during the moon landings. If that does not blow your socks off then you are a sick person. Our coastal cities are being destroyed by hurricanes intensified by global warming, California and the west are being burned to the ground for same reason. The brush fires used to be once in a lifetime occurrence now they are annual according to veteran firefighters. Fallen angels exist and animal mutilations are an example or their existence for some ritual they practice. I like you have been placed here to learn something that can only be learned in human form so when we return to the maker who is all knowing we are better souls for it. We earn our way to heaven through learning moralistic values of right and wrong, I follow in the footsteps of the fisherman. I believe that judgment day is upon us. What a way for me to learn that.

      You may ask why doesn’t main stream religion acknowledge what I am suggesting, all I can say to that is power corrupts, come on the Pope has seven personal body servants. The multitude of religious entities and sub divisions within those entities thrive on making a living with petty differences and protect their own domain. It should be interesting to note that the Vatican stated that there is nothing to fear from an UFO, they should be treated with utter respect. The Vatican has also claimed that the earth was the center of the universe and the Vatican was the center of civilization, they preached that for centuries until science proved otherwise. I by no means have changed anything in the bible only a different perspective of exactly what it states than what you are used to being preached about. There are way too many oddities in the world for example, the Peruvian picture graphs carved into the desert by an ancient civilization that can only be viewed from high above. The pyramids exact orientation to North and pointing to Orion where a new galaxy is being formed, creation itself, I have seen artwork of the heavens touched by the finger of God. . The pyramids are built on the exact center of the globes landmass at the only place possible with enough bedrock to support the enormous weight of the million of stone blocks There are sightings with pictures and drawings over course of the centuries of strange objects in the sky. Legends of crystal skulls and actual museum specimens with the silicone capacity to store all of the worlds data in the skulls, the objects have scientist puzzled. Corruption, Deception and Greed have total control of our system, the corporate elite have given themselves a Thirty Billon dollars bonus in the US with bail out money while President Bush gives an extravagant dinner party at White House for G 20 partners Global greenhouse and ecological destruction on a massive scale with the fastest rate of specie extinction in the history of the world is now in progress and probably to late to reverse momentum it may already be irreversible, you are witnessing the end of life as we know it. There is no political will to correct the situation. The situation will become desperate and desperate people do desperate things, make sure your soul is right and speak out.

      The Oldest known written text on the subject of angels comes from the annals of the Hindu text. Some 4.000 years ago. (Stories from the bible are shared by Christians, Jews, Moslems and Hindu’s to name a few). It describes a war in the heavens in which Lucifer and his followers are cast out of heaven. Angels are said to be the first beings created by God, therefore created billions upon billions of years ago, they share in the knowledge of Creation itself and that is why Lucifer decides to challenge God. Ah you see there is free will in heaven too, very interesting. After much thought I concluded what I saw as a UFO was actually Angels. The Old Testament has many references to UFO’s doing the bidding of the Creator. One such reference to doing his biddings is when Moses led the Jews out of Egypt it is written that he followed an object in the sky both day and night and this object changed accordingly to increase the view ability as light conditions dictated, dark during the day and bright at night. The staff did not part the Sea, the object overhead did for the Jews to escape the pharos’s army and crashes the sea upon the Egyptians as they tried to follow. It is further written that this same object dropped “Manna” from heaven to nourish the Jewish nation in the barren dessert devoid of subsistence and sheltered them from the oppressive heat and sun with a covering cloud.

      Another reference of UFO’s in the bible is told about Elijah who is last seen being whisked away in an UFO only to be seen again centuries later at Christ transfiguration. A further example is Ezekiel and a detailed description of an encounter with a flaming wheel. Remember the highest form of technology back then was a wheel so descriptions are given from a very primitive technological viewpoint trying to describe the most advance beings in the Universe.

      Peter, James and John were with Christ at his transfiguration on a mountain top, a boiling cloud, flashing and lit in the center came rolling overhead, Christ is bathed in a brilliant pure white light and Moses and Elijah are seen talking together. The apostles were scared out of their wits and over taken by all of this, then a voice comes from the cloud stating this is my beloved son. My point is that there are many references to UFO’s in the bible and I believe that the UFO’s travel through other unseen dimensions as String theory describes. The bible also states that there are 9 choir of angels, each with separate responsibilities. So you see I believe we get our DNA from the angels and angels and UFO’s are all one and the same. Point, neither the classical viewpoint of extraterrestrial UFO’s or angels interfere with the free will of human beings, at least not as we know it.

      Scientist are feverishly at work trying to describe the unifying theory of the Universe. There are four known forces in the Physics world, Gravity, Electromagnetism, the Strong force and the Weak force. There are two mathematical models that describe these forces, Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity. When you combine these opposite polarized models you come up with string theory. String theory has developed at least seven different versions described with as many as 11 different dimensions, now that’s thinking outside of the box if you ask me. A string has been theorized with the advent of nuclear colliders. A string is described as a vibrating particle that is undetectable somehow like a vibrating violin string. They say if an Atom was the size of our solar system then a string would be the size of a tree, therefore undetectable and more like philosophy not science since it can’t be proven. Sound like faith to me. That alone points to Intelligent design from some viewpoints including mine. I hope you have not hung up on me yet, I know this is a radical interpretation but you would have to walk in my shoes to develop this notion. A string makes something or an object what it is, that is to say very essence of an atom etc… and is the physics scientist explanation for the unifying theory.

      About 10 years ago I flat lined from a staph infection that collapsed my lungs and infected my heart valves, I spent five months in the Hospital after awaking from a coma. I could hear the doctors giving up on me while in a coma state saying that I would not live until the morning so my parents had my last rites administered according to their beliefs. Can you imagine hearing that in a coma and I was not ready to kiss my ass goodbye but was completely helpless. As I laid there dying I remember fighting for each breath and taking the last one then went to the other side, somewhere in the twilight zone I was told that it was he who decided when it was your time to go. Lucky for me as I was given another chance to amend my ways but also I was given a task. Somehow it was if it were written in stone that I had to get people to nurture humanity and the environment, there was urgency for the well being of their souls and the planet, that time was of the essence. I had no idea how to accomplish this task plus I still had not figured out the encounter with the UFO, I knew they had to be connected, my death and the encounter.

      I needed to start this task that I was given and finally hear about this person who said something to a friend of mine about my Father who had recently died, she came from out the blue and hit the nail on the head about my Father and my friend’s husband. She said “ Tell Duane the Frank is OK”. She had no idea who my friend was or who my Dad was. I write the Medium a story of my death experience and encounter with the UFO’s. About 2 weeks later I get an invitation to attend Angel University at no charge as a guess. Man did life change for me again in a big way. She called herself Rev Carrey, she wore no shoes so as to stay grounded to the earth from high frequency vibrations as she claimed.. I recognized her as an Earth angle, one who takes human form. She singles me out and first ask me the question do you see the numbers 1-11, 11-11 often, I told her that it was driving me crazy to encounter the number 11-11 all of the time, She tells me because I was sensitive to the spiritual world I would see these numbers often, She then presents some flowers to me and tells me to read them and tell the person next to me something about themselves . I laugh and tell this nice looking lady that she needs to eat cheerios more often, I felt kind of bad after saying that and the next day I apologize for being a wise ass, she said “Pat when you said that my jaws dropped as I used to be a model and ate a handful of cheerios as a snack to keep my shape“. Damn did that surprise me. She still looked the part, I hope she did not take it as being to fat because she was not that at all. The thing that was truly amazing was when the Rev. Carrie describes the natural spirits of the world that the Creator placed here. She mentioned the native Americans and their reverence for the natural spirits and suggested that we had something to learn from them. She tells me about fairies, I’m thinking “oh sure” but I am listening, “they are just little things no more than 3 inches or so tall and they are the most beautiful beings that you can imagine. They fly around unseen, they vibrate at a different frequency so you don’t see them and are attracted to flowers and house plants and natural settings, they like to live in small shelters” and she suggested that you buy fairy houses to attract them and keep indoor plants in your house for the therapeutic value of co habitation. She then tells me to concentrate on a group of flowers, I did and to my complete astonishment a fairy appears from nowhere just as beautiful as she described that they would be, very colorful with reds, yellows green and blue shades, the fairy darts with her wings just buzzing around and then as suddenly as she appeared she just vanished into another dimension. My God I could barely believe what I just witnessed bu

      UFO’s in the South Lyon, Mi and Surrounding area 1965

      Anyone over the age of 50 should remember the rash of UFO sightings in the South Lyon Mi and surrounding areas in 1965. An article appeared that was reported in the South Lyon Herald of a Dexter area farmer and son who reported a saucers type craft landing in their field. They included a picture of the farmer and son pointing to the area where the craft landed. Man were they ever ridiculed and debunked by the Government and people in general. I too made fun of them but boy was I about to find out different. I never talked publicly about this story until recently.

      It was a weekend night in October of 65 when my brother, his girlfriend, my friend and I where on our way to Saline to a 4H dance. Rick my friend ask my brother to pull the car over to do his business, I joined him behind the car off to the side of the road. All of a sudden my friend says “Pat, what is that over the car”, to my complete astonishment as I had not noticed anything until then was a saucer shaped object that appeared to be very stealthy and matt black, you had to be looking directly at it or it blended into the night sky, the dome rose from the saucer part of it perfectly, like a French curve in balance with the craft, it was absolutely beautiful in appearance. It had a row of lights on the outer perimeter that fired off in succession like the lights of a marquee theater sign. My friend asks “Can you hear anything”, not a sound, it was just hung completely still in the night sky, like a portrait. It was about 100 feet above the car and took up all of the right of way on Pontiac trail so it had to be at least 65 feet wide. Then without making any noise it starts to move to the right and make 90 degree abrupt turns all at the same speed, it did not yawl, bank and stayed on the same plane. I was beside myself as to what I was witnessing, no human being could possibly sustain the G force in such turns. I am a licensed pilot and I can tell you the G force in that type of turn is the same as running a plane straight into the ground, at least 300 G’s of force. The human body blacks out above +9 and below -6 G’s and no one has survived a 30 G’s impact. What I saw was beyond any known human physics. I was transfixed on what I was seeing and finally called my brother and his girlfriend to come and see, shortly thereafter the saucer accelerates straight up and burned through the atmosphere much like a shooting star as it gained altitude at incredible speed then moves to the South East in the night sky with the appearance of a satellite I was left in awe. Later reports came out of Kecksburg PA of an unidentified object crashing in area seen by many people but immediately covered up by men in black suits and the military. A documentary was made of that incident. I have always wondered if that was the same craft or what, one thing for sure our government has actively covered up such occurrences and threaten peoples life’s if they talk about it. There is a lot to be learned from technology mainly control, the country with the highest developed technology controls lesser developed countries so is there any wonder why it is kept from the general public.

      We ended up at the dance and all seemed normal as a girl was lying on the dance floor moving about with some guy on top of her humping away, we called it dancing. Their were some strange people from Ann Arbor in those days. You know we did not discuss what happened on the way to the dance now I still find that somewhat ironic.

      It wasn’t two weeks later one evening when my Mom

      becomes hysterical crying for someone to come and look. She has had spastic episodes of fear in the past always during the early morning after my Dad left at 4 AM for the dairy plant to pick of a load of milk, she would imagine some man was at the door trying to gain entry into the house, it would just petrify her. I grudgingly obliged her and sure enough after crying wolf her entire life there is this ultra bright ball of light coming straight at us and then retreating, it changed in size from the size of the sun to that of a star it continued this pattern. I called the Brighton State Police Post and reported the sighting, they informed me that they were getting numerous calls but still treated me like a prankster That discussed me and I hung up, no way am I going to call a cop unless I need them. It was only a short time later when a squadron of fighter jets in formation came streaking at the object from the direction of Selfridge AFB. The object immediately zoomed off leaving the squadron in disarray. What a sight to behold and the government called it “Swamp Gas”, has anyone ever seen swamp gas like that? Something similar happened at Fatama, Portugal during WW1 that prophesized future events that the church calls an aberration or miracle. Now the quest began to understand what I witnessed in two separate sightings


      Somehow I have always had it in my head that directional gyros of a nuclear nature on the anti-matter side of things was somehow involved to power the craft. I can picture a device that spins up particles on an atomic level creating a gyroscope effect by staying directional and creating artificial gravity at the same time, thus stopping time and creating some type of gravity wave to overcome the effects of G force. By stopping and starting individual gyros you create motion and direction in a spherical direction. I have also guessed that the lights that fired off the craft might have been some type of data stream like the data on a fiber optics cable, it did not melt my brain thank goodness but I don’t know how that thought originated and did they plant something in memory? What I do know is that physics as we know it is nothing but elementary to them. Different dimensions exist for these beings beyond my comprehension. So that leads to, who exactly are they? Are we some grand experiment or are we being studied like an anthropologist would conduct on a primitive society?

      George Leaky, Margaret Meade were world renowned anthropologist they and other like them have searched for the missing link to no avail. The first walking apes appeared some three million years ago and the scientist name one of the first homo erectus “Lucy”. Although Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens existed at the same time there is no direct link genetically. Homo Sapiens appeared some 100,000 years ago. With genetic testing on a worldwide scale it can be determined our species originated from the southern plains of Africa and how they dispersed around the globe. There is no known direct link to other great apes from this planet, this dictates the possibility of seeding from a source from outside of our solar system. There is only one possible explanation if you have in faith in the bible as a book of human experiences. The Creator has always used his angels to do his biddings, they have directed prophets at times, made important announcements, destroyed cities with brimstone from heaven, more like a laser pulse I would think. Angles are made in the same likeness of God as are Human Beings. I believe we get our genetic code from the Creator using his angles, that is what gives us our soul, and therein lies our likeness. So the questions remains, what exactly is an Angel?

      The Oldest known written text on the subject of angels comes from the annals of the Hindu text. Some 4.000 years ago. (Stories from the bible are shared by Christians, Jews, Moslems and Hindu’s to name a few). It describes a war in the heavens in which Lucifer and his followers are cast out of heaven. Angels are said to be the first beings created by God, therefore created billions upon billions of years ago, they share in the knowledge of Creation itself and that is why Lucifer decides to challenge God. Ah you see there is free will in heaven too, very interesting. After much thought I concluded what I saw as a UFO was actually Angels. The Old Testament has many referenc
