In this article we will be covering the Hudson Valley UFO incident from December the 31st, 1981, which started with a retired policeman chilling out on his porch at night…
On The Porch
The policeman was sitting out on his porch just before midnight, getting some fresh air and enjoying the night sky…when suddenly he noticed a strange array of lights off to the south.
The lights travelled slowly towards his house and as they got nearer he noticed that they were selectively coloured as red, green and white. He realised that these lights probably indicated that he was looking at a plane…but it was flying awfully close to the ground.
As the lights got even closer, he realised that they were travelling too slow to be a plane, and whatever was in the sky was making no noise whatsoever – no rumble of thrust or engines.
As the lights passed over him he realised that a V-shaped fuselage was holding them together. The strange craft just passed silently over him, and carried on with it’s journey.
The ‘policeman’s report’ was the first of many – numerous others came forward to claim they had seen the same craft in the sky.
On March 26, 1983, the Westchester-Rockland Daily Item released a front page story covering all of the UFO reports, and expert ufologists from all over the world started to pick up on the case, and offer their opinions.
One of these experts was named Dr. J. Allen Hynek, and he set up a specialised group and a hotline for people to come forward and give information on their experiences with the UFO.
The hotline eventually recorded over 300 witness statements that all confirmed that the craft was V-shaped.
On the night of March 24, 1983, the city of Yorktown also came alive with reports of this strange UFO activity. The local police stations had a terrible time trying to keep up with all the panicked reports they were receiving.
One of the main roads in the area was completely filled up with stalled cars, that refused to move as a UFO passed over the area.
There were over 5,000 Hudson Valley UFO sightings from the period of 1982 through 1986.
The Hudson Valley UFO Incident
The UFO from these sightings was always seen at night – none of the reports came from daylight hours. Also, many of the people that witnessed the craft pass over claimed that it was not one vessel, but more like a dozen smaller vessels making up one huge area in the sky.
There were also further reports that claimed that the ‘vessel’ slowed down when over bodies of water, then used some kind of red beam to scan the water’s surface – what were they looking for?
There were also a handful of reports insisting that the UFO took special notice of the Indian Point Nuclear Plant.

This article will be covering the reports linked to the Lake Erie UFO sightings that were experienced on March the 4th, 1988, in the USA.
What The Baker Family Saw
The Baker’s were on there way home from a nice meal out on the 4th of March at around half past eight in the evening. Sheila and Henry Baker had decided to take their three kids out for a meal, and were then driving home along the waterfront of Lake Erie when Shelia noticed something on the water’s surface.
Henry slowed down the car and the family were shocked to see some sort of football shaped object rocking back and forth on the lake.
It hung above the water without making any sort of sound and strange lights shone out of it’s ‘tipped’ ends. The Baker family got out of the car to investigate further, but as they did, the object started to move along the water towards them!
They turned and ran screaming back to the car, jumped in, and drove off as fast as they could.
Contacting the Authorities
When the Baker family arrived home they locked all the doors, and peered out of the main living room window. They could still see the strange UFO hovering on the water, but for some reason – it’s lights had changed colour to red and blue.
They decided to phone the police, but the police line unfortunately put them straight through to the coastguard.
Shelia began to explain the incident to the coastguard and suddenly gasped as she noticed the UFO disperse a number of smaller triangular vessels from it’s body. These triangles then began to hover and dart around the main UFO’s area.
Without warning, the triangular objects then began moving towards the nearby Perry nuclear power plant.
The coastguard finally arrived in the form of Seaman James Power and Petty Officer John Knaub, they contacted the Baker family who then pointed out where the UFO was spotted.
The decided to get as close as they could to the UFO, and moved in. As they approached the strange vessel they noticed that the icy water’s surface was starting to crack every time the UFO got too close to it.
The coastguards looked worried, and the Baker family heard them radio in a message to their HQ explaining that they were witnessing something extraordinary.
Suddenly, one of the smaller triangular UFOs broke away from it’s fleet and started to dart around the coastguard’s boat. It seemed to spin as it travelled around the boat, as it investigated the vessel. After a minute or so, it then returned to it’s mother ship fleet.
A sudden noise was then followed by all the triangular objects re-entering the main UFO as it’s lights yet again changed colour. Within a blink of the eye – it then disappeared into the night sky.
All that remained was the cracked ice on the lake’s surface.

This article will be taking a look at the Hopkinsville Kentucky aliens case of 1955. What were the strange goblin creatures that appeared at the Sutton family farmhouse?
The Hopkinsville Goblin Case
On August the 14th, 1955, a local woman in Dogtown, Indiana, contacted the local press with a strange story.
She claimed that while on a swimming trip along the banks of the Ohio River, she and her friends had noticed a peculiar shiny object above them in the sky.
Without warning, some sort of creature reached through the water and grabbed at one of the group – trying desperately to drag them under the water.
It’s arm, and hands, were fuzzy – as if covered in a type of fur material, it also had claws on the end of each finger.
Exactly one week later, a family gathering took place at a small farmhouse near Hopkinsville…
The Hopkinsville KY UFO Incident
The gathering took place at the Sutton family’s farmhouse, and close friend Billy Ray Taylor was attending.
Taylor was outside getting water from the farm’s well when he noticed something large and bright, falling out of the sky. It seemed to land in a nearby field.
He went back in the house and told the gathering what he had just witnessed…but his claims were met with laughter.
Later that evening, the family gathering were shocked when the Sutton’s dog started barking uncontrollably. Billy Ray and Lucky Sutton decided to scan the area outside, to see what was concerning the animal so much.
Within minutes, the two men ran back in the house screaming and looking for the shotguns – they told the family to lock all the doors and stay away from the windows.
The shocked family members asked what had happened, and the two young men told them that a number of strange creatures were in the nearby field.
Over the next few hours the family were terrorized by these creatures as they hung to the farmhouse walls, and peered at them through the windows.
The creatures were apparently short with pointed ears, claw-like hands and large round eyes. They wore strange metallic, silver-colored suits.
The Terrifying Hopkinsville Encounter
Many of the creatures were shot through the windows of the home, and at one point, Taylor went outside to shoot at more.
Whenever he hit one of the creatures, the bullet seemed to have little effect – the creature would simply float away further down the yard.
After a couple of minutes outside, one of the ‘goblins’ managed to grab Taylor’s head. He managed to get away, and retreated back to the safety of the house.
The family eventually managed to get into two separate cars, and make a mad dash into the nearby town, where they went straight to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff and a number of local and State law enforcement officers, visited the farmhouse soon afterwards.
The creatures were gone, but they found a lot of shotgun shells outside the farmhouse. The family members pleaded with the authorities to search the house – they were petrified and did not want to go back into the home.
The house was searched, and nothing was found.
Just before the search was concluded, the local media turned up and started taking accounts off the family members involved.
The authorities and the media left, a couple of hours later…but the family insisted that the ‘goblins’ reappeared later that night, and started terrorizing them once again!
This family had no reason to lie, and left the farmhouse and moved on within a matter of weeks after the incident.
This article will be covering the alien reports that surfaced in Brazil in 1996 – now known as The Varginha Incident. What were these strange bipedal creatures and where did they come from?
Let’s take a closer look…
The first reports of these creatures surfaced in the city on January the 20th, 1996, when three young women claimed they had encountered one.
The creature was said to be no more than five feet tall, bipedal, with dark brown skin. It’s head was said to have been ‘over-sized’ with large red eyes, and it had an extremely slender body.
The creature seemed to be injured in some way, and moved in a hobble, as if it was seriously hurt. The three girls (Lilane Silva, Valquiria Silav and Katia Xavier) didn’t care a jot if it was injured – the red eyes were enough to send them running off, screaming.
Word spread quickly, and the local press pushed the story until it was worldwide news.
But this was not the end of the extraterrestrial activity in Varginha during January, 1996…
The night before the discovery of this creature, the Brazilian Center on Air Defence and Air Traffic Control was contacted by a US agency, regarding an unidentified object heading towards the ground near Minas Gerais Estate in South East Brazil.
Around about the same time, two farmers were awoken to the sound of cattle going mad in their fields. They both got up, got changed, and walked out into the night to find out what was spooking the animals.
When they got to the first field they were shocked to see a silent flying object without lights gliding down one of their fields. The ‘craft’ seemed to be in some sort of distress and was banking left and right erratically.
Rumors suggest that this UFO finally crashed on the farmland, and an alien survivor was shot by one of the farmers. All the evidence was removed from the scene by authorities before the locals could set eyes on it (apparently!).
The Varginha Reports
The reports of ‘The Devil’ creatures started surfacing in Varginha at 8 o’clock the following morning. The first one was made by a student not more than 6 miles away from the farm crash site.
The Varginha Fire Department then received several calls that morning regarding strange creatures in the city. These creatures were described as moving like jaguars. The military had turned up at the scene of every report and ‘removed’ each culprit.
The whole city spent the remainder of the day watching the military patrol their streets, looking for something…
One of these military groups are rumored to have captured one of these creatures alive in a city park, that night. They apparently took it to a general hospital where the doctors and nurses were suppressed. Several areas of the hospital were closed down and the public were told it was nothing more than a training exercise for the military.
The creature is rumored to have died in a ward of that hospital, and kept there under guard, for a full thirty hours before the military heads turned up to remove it.
The Varginha Incident, Brazil
Locals of Varginha, Brazil, still believe that their city was under extraterrestrial quarantine on January the 20th, 1996 – what do you think?

This article will be covering the controversial George Adamski UFO photos from the 1950’s. Was this Polish born American really in touch with aliens or was he nothing more than a clever fraud?
Let’s take a closer look…
George Adamski and the Venusians
Adamski’s most famous contact with a Venusian (alien race from Venus) was in December 1952, when he managed to capture a photograph of one of their scout ships.
George Adamski had already gone public with a handful of previous alien encounters but this one seemed to gain him notoriety and unwanted criticism.
The First Contact
Adamski claimed that his first ‘alien encounter’ took place some time in 1946, when he saw a cigar shaped ‘mothercraft’ pass in front of the moon during a meteor shower.
Then, in 1950, Adamski managed to capture a photograph of six UFO’s flying in formation.
It was in 1952 that Adamski had his closest encounter, when a Venusian scout ship landed near him and a being named Orthon stepped out.
Orthon and Adamski had a telepathic conversation in which the Venusian warned about the dangers of the nuclear age and doomsday predictions.
When the conversation was over, Adamski asked the Venusian if he could take a picture of him, but Orthon would not agree to this.
However, Adamski was able to take the famous ‘Scout Ship’ photo when Orthon returned several weeks later.
An Important Man
George Adamski became a very famous man, and published several books on his encounters with the Venusian race.
The Queen Julianna of the Netherlands took great interest in his work and even presented him with a Golden Medal of Honor for his services in acting as a medium between humanity and the extraterrestrial.
His writings explain that he went on several journeys through the solar system with the Venusians – meeting numerous new alien races along the way. He called these groups of alien species ‘Space Brothers’.
The Adamski Empire Starts to Crumble
Even before the release of the 1952 scout ship, Adamski had his critics who claimed he was nothing more than a crazy fraud.
Adamski had claimed to have used a Kodak Brownie box camera and a six inch telescope to snap the scout ship in motion…but photographic experts started pulling holes in his story.
They claimed that the precise, separate manipulations of the camera/telescope setup would have caused the photographic image to be extremely blurred…but it was extremely sharp!
Other critics claim that the ship itself is made up of easily recognizable household items – one of Adamski’s colleagues even stated that he had come across the UFO model, when it was being constructed.
BUT…it’s also worth noting that many experts in the field of photography at the time agreed with what Adamski was saying – they believe that the scout ship image was definitely NOT a fake.
So now it’s over to you – friend of the ‘star men’ from Venus or clever fraud?

The painting named The Madonna with Saint Giovannino is a 15th century piece of art that has been causing a stir among Ancient Alien theorists for many decades now. Many ufologists firmly believe that there is some kind of UFO included in the picture’s skyline.
But this is not the only example of antique art depicting alien life – numerous other historical paintings also include strange objects in their skyline settings. Is this proof that aliens have been visiting us for centuries?
Let’s take a closer look…
Controversy – Who Painted it?
Domenico Ghirlandaio is most often credited with painting this strange piece of art that shows the UFO…but the true painter of The Madonna with San Giovannino is still in dispute.
Jacopo del Sellaio and Sebastiano Mainardi have in the past, both been linked to the painting. Mainardi was actually the brother-in-law of Ghirlandaio who learned everything he knew about art from him.
UFO or Religious Symbology?
So what is that strange flying object in the background of the picture? Why does it look so much like a UFO?
Many skeptics believe that there is a simple explanation for it’s inclusion in the picture. They believe it to be a representation of the gospel passage from the Gospel of Luke 2:8….
“Shepherds abiding in the field keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, an angel of the Lord come upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them”
The Florentine Renaissance period offered many paintings which included some form of ‘shepherd and dog’ nativity scene – frequently looking up at the sky towards a bright shining object. More often than not these objects are simply meant to be angels or stars.
But not everyone goes along with this biblical angle…
To be brutally honest – there are no wings or body to suggest that this is meant to be some sort of angel.
Is it really a painted experience of an ancient UFO encounter?
Is it a mistake that the artist made, and couldn’t be bothered to cover up (i.e. turned it into something else?)
Or is it simply misinterpretation and a lack of understanding of religious iconography throughout art history?
It’s worth remembering that until recently, the Catholic church has gone out of it’s way to shun scientific fact and the thought of life on other planets. Why would so many painters of religious contexts opt to include something that their faith does not believe in?

This article will be taking a look at the famous ufology incident involving the Solway Firth spaceman photo, and how a simple family day trip in 1964, turned into a nightmare that would shroud them in international mystery…
A Family Day Out
On the 23rd of May, 1964, devoted father, Jim Templeton, decided to gather up the family and head for a rural spot in England – time to get away from the rat race and grab some fresh air!
Former fireman, Jim, had recently taken on the hobby of photography and he had a destination in mind. He decided that the family would visit the Burgh Marsh near the Solway Firth estuary in Cumbria.
He had heard of the area before and was desperate to get a few new snaps of the area for his portfolio.
They finally arrived at the rural setting and found a spot to park the car. They then decided to walk through the fields a bit to find a nice location for a picnic.
As the family crossed the fields, Jim couldn’t help but notice that the cows were all gathered together right in the corners of each field – they seemed scared of something.
This was strange because cattle like this was usually scattered across each field in the area.
The family eventually found a picturesque spot to settle and Jim instructed his daughter to gather a bunch of flowers, so that he could take a nice photo of her.
She did so, and Jim snapped a photo.
When they returned home from their rural trip, Jim took his film reel down to the local chemist as he was excited to see his work as soon as possible. A few days later he returned to pick up the developed shots.
The chemist on duty that day told Jim that he thought the pictures were very good – but it was disappointing that some guy had ruined the shot of his daughter by walking past in the background.
This was strange – Jim knew that they were the only ones in that rural location at that point of the day.
He quickly made his way through the photographs and located his daughter’s image – sure enough, someone was walking past her in the background.
Worryingly – this guy seemed to be wearing a spacesuit…
The picture of the Solway Firth spaceman was released by Jim immediately – it gathered pace and publicity after it was reported to the police and then Kodak.
The photographic film company were so amazed by the image, that they offered a reward for any expert who could solve the riddle of the Solway Firth spaceman photo. If anyone managed to crack the mystery – they would get free Kodak film reels for life!
Nobody managed to claim this reward – the image was actually tested by the company as well…and it was found to be 100% legit.
About a fortnight after the photo was taken, and it became public news, two men dressed in black turned up at Jim Templeton’s home.
At first they seemed like normal enough guys, but after a while Jim got an uneasy feeling off them – he claimed they did not act like ‘normal’ people.
Whenever they spoke to each other they did not use their names, or surnames. Instead they addressed each other as numbers.
They wanted Jim to take them to the rural spot where he had taken the picture, and he obliged.
When they got there they started asking Jim about the wildlife in the area – how was it acting during that period. Jim remembered the bunched up cattle, so he mentioned it.
At this point the two men began trying their best to convince Jim that he had made a simple mistake – surely he snapped a passerby without noticing him?
Jim wouldn’t have it – he informed them that he was a decent photographer who was fully aware of his surroundings. There was nobody else in the field – period!
This seemed to change the mood of the conversation, and the two men in black started to lose their temper…but Jim stuck to his story.
They eventually walked away from the discussion and got back in their car. They then left Jim standing in the middle of the rural setting…with a long walk home!

The world has always wondered about the existence of beings from other planets or other dimensions. This nagging question about aliens visiting our planet in secret or UFOs being spotted all over our airspace continues to pile with no clear answers anywhere in sight.
It seems like the more we dig about it, the more confusing it gets. While many inquisitive minds run after the truth, countless of government and affiliated private agencies work tirelessly to conceal the truth.
So what happened in Roswell back in the stormy night of July 4th, 1947?
Will we ever get the truth about the Area 51 Roswell incident?
Why do world governments spend so much time and state resources trying so hard to hide the truth from us?
Is it to protect us?
Is it for their own selfish benefits?
No one knows yet…but the Roswell incident is only one of the many UFO stories that the US government has never really succeeded in sweeping under the carpet.
There were just too many witnesses to control or muffle without directly breaking the law…
New Mexico Wakes Up to New Neighbors From The Sky
The first people to visit the Roswell UFO crash site were a rancher called Mack Brazel and a young boy belonging to the Proctor family.
The two were in the fields checking up on sheep after a stormy night to ensure that the sheep were okay.
Factual historic accounts say that once Mack and the boy got to the field, they came across debris from an unknown craft that had crashed in the open fields that previous night.
According to Mack, the thing was like nothing he’d seen before; a shiny but extremely light metallic foil like material that could not be broken or remain bent or even show signs of creasing no matter how much Mack folded it.
He decided to carry some of the debris home and immediately shared his discovery with the Proctors.
Soon after inspecting the pieces from the strange craft, the Proctors were convinced that Mack had found a UFO (alien spacecraft) since there were numerous cases/rumors of UFO sightings in the Roswell area for some time.
They then asked him to report the matter to the county sheriff in Chaves, George Wilcox which he did two days later.
Wilcox then called Maj. Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer in the 509th Bomb Group who was stationed at RAAF (Roswell Army Air Field – now known as the Walker Air Force Base) at the time to discuss this mysterious phenomenon with him and that’s when everything started growing dark and confusing.
That was the beginning of the gradual cover up by the government.
Two well-known UFO researchers, Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt reported that their research had shown a possibility that military radar had picked up this unidentified flying object before it went down.
These two UFO enthusiasts wrote in their book titled A History of UFO Crashes that two more eyewitnesses, William Woody and his dad had seen the strange craft as it crashed some 40 miles northwest of Roswell.
In the book, Woody is quoted talking of a dazzling object plummeting to the ground as he and his dad watched.
Randle and Schmitt continued to point out that the crash site was totally closed to the public for a couple of days as the military worked quickly to clear the wreckage.
Nobody was allowed to go near the crash site during this time… and that can be confirmed by Woody’s recorded claim that the military personnel present at the site barred him and his dad from gaining access to the area when they both went out looking for the strange object from the night before.
So what solid evidence supports the validity of the Roswell incident?
The Unearthly Debris
This is the first piece of evidence that aliens live secretly among us and that one of the ships went down in Roswell that fateful night of 4th July, 1947 despite efforts from the government to keep this story under tight wraps.
After the heads up from Wilcox, Marcel was ordered by Col. William Blanchard, the commanding officer of the 509th to go investigate the crash site together with Capt. Sheridan Cavitt (a senior CIC –Counter Intelligence Corps – agent) and Brazel.
The first stop for these three was Brazel’s home where Marcel inspected one of the large pieces of debris that Brazel had dragged home.
When they got to the field the next morning on the Monday of 7th July 1947, Marcel noted that the debris covered an area approximately three-quarters of a mile and a couple of hundred feet wide.
Marcel later said that the debris was strewn all over the place and it looked like the spacecraft had exploded in the air before crashing down to the ground.
Marcel who had even been to the White Sands Testing Grounds and a witness to numerous secret government projects is quoted saying, “I have seen rockets, both experimental and weather balloons, but I have never seen anything like this!”
He was referring the small pieces of indestructible tinfoil debris and some structures that resembled I-beams that he could neither break nor bend despite their startling weightlessness.
He also noticed strange markings on the I-beams that he could not comprehend. Marcel’s story was confirmed by Dr. John Watkins who interviewed a hypnotized Marcel in May, 1990.
Blanchard is also on record saying that the materials recovered from the Roswell crash site was not something he’d ever seen or heard of before.
The Case of Mysterious Bodies
This is where a bit of confusion and a big blur come into the story. None of the previous witnesses ever talked of encountering any bodies.
In fact, there were no mentions of any bodies on the crash site until an incident with a young mortician, Glenn Dennis, from Ballard Funeral Home, made one curious call from the morgue at the army base making a very unusual request; to be supplied with air-tight coffins.
One strange thing that happened to Dennis during this time was being kicked out of the army base hospital after he went there for a friendly visit with one of the nurses.
He also chanced to see pieces of the spacecraft’s wreckage which had more strange markings peeking from the back of one laden military ambulance.
When Dennis met the nurse the following day, she drew him pictures of the creatures she’d seen and that was the last time Dennis saw her.
Rumors say that she was transferred to England but who knows…?
Her whereabouts have remained a mystery since then!
The Press Release
Blanchard was really throwing a lot of orders around and one Walter Haut would soon find himself at the receiving end of one.
Being RAAF’s public information officer, he was ordered by Blanchard to write a press release on the discovery of the UFO.
Blanchard was in a hurry to get credit for the UFO’s discovery and he forgot to ask his superiors, a decision that came back to haunt him a few days later.
The finished press release had been given to 2 radio stations and the two local newspapers in Roswell.
The heading read: “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region”.
This was the beginning of the government cover up.
The Government Gets Involved Through the Army HQ
When Blanchard sent Marcel to Carswell Air Force Base (formerly Fort Worth Army Air Field), to report to a Brig. Gen. Roger M. Ramey (8th Air Force commanding officer), he carried a piece of debris from the crash site to show to Ramey.
This is where the strange became stranger…upon his request to be shown the exact crash site on the map, Ramey and Marcel stepped out of his office to the map room so that Marcel could show him where the aliens had crashed.
When they returned to Ramey’s office, the piece of UFO material brought by Marcel was gone and in its place was a weather balloon!
And thus the cover story began.
The press release was quickly cancelled and Haut was sent to retrieve the copies he’d given to the newspapers and the radio stations and instead give them this new story about the debris being out of a weather balloon, and not from a UFO as earlier reported.
A cleanup crew was then dispatched to the site and just like that, all evidence was gone!
Broadcasters Walt Whitmore and Judd Roberts who hoped to see the debris before it was moved by the military were sternly turned away.
Everything was collected in crates and stored at the army base hangar for a while before making a total vanishing act…forever!
Even Mack Brazel was seen by Whitmore as he was escorted to the Roswell Daily Record offices to recant his story.
The debris from the UFO suddenly turned into a weather balloon and that was that…the newspapers had to go with this new story.
And that’s how the Area 51 Roswell incident went under.
So what do you think of this Roswell affair? Was it true that a UFO crashed on earth? Does the US government still have the preserved bodies of the recovered aliens?
