IMAGINE…

“The number of HABITABLE worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the Tens of Billions, minimum, and we haven’t even talked about the moons.
And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 Billion.”

Seth Shostak, Director & Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute – From NASAs ‘Preparing for (ET) Discovery’ – September 2014

.
.

“The chance of finding life has risen a Billion-fold when we realized that Earth-like planets are not rare, but that there are literally Billions of them just within our own galaxy,”
Astronomer Royal, Lord Martin Rees, cosmologist and astrophysicist, former President of the Royal Society  – 2015

“Something is happening in the world. We don’t know what it is, but the fact is that it can no longer go unnoticed by governments and the scientific establishment.”
Ricardo Bermúdez, (Ret.) General of the Chilean Air Force and Director of CEFAA December 28, 2004

 

“I Can’t Reveal Anything”
President Barack Obama interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel Live – March 12, 2015

 

“‘Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it (meaning UFOs)”
“I think we may have been (visited already). We don’t know for sure,”
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reportedly made the promise when speaking with The Conway Daily Sun in New Hampshire – 30 December 2015

 

“My biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files,”
Attorney John Podesta, Former White House Chief of Staff under President Clinton, Tweeting on his last day as counsellor to President Barack Obama (to become Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign) on the 13th of February 2015

 

This thing (UFOs) has gotten so highly-classified… it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business, that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified.
Barry Goldwater – Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, U.S. Senator, former Air Force Major-General and Presidential candidate (2)(3)(4)(5)

 

“There are a “group of UFOs, who are making influence from the Cosmos.” That “there exists a decreasing group of persons, who are trying to rationally analyze the situation and objectively evaluate what is happening.”
From the American Embassy in Vilnius 2006, Lithuania. The statement was made by Albinas Januska, who at the time, was appointed adviser to the Lithuanian Prime Minister – Prominent Lithuanian politician says

 

“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right, we ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth and we ought to do it because it’s the law.”
Attorney John Podesta, Counselor to President Obama and White House Chief of Staff under President Clinton, now Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, September, 2007 (2)

 

Oh yes we discuss it at every conference that we had with the military, and they never were able to make me a concrete report on it. . . . There’s always things like that going on, flying saucers and they’ve had other things, you know.”
U.S. President Harry S. Truman, 33rd President (1945 – 1953) (2)(3)

 

“At this time, the reports of incidents convince us that there is something going on that must have immediate attention…. Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitudes and travelling at high speeds in the vicinity of major U.S. defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”
H. Marshall Chadwell, CIA’s Chief of Scientific Intelligence – classified memo to his boss, the Director of the CIA, Walter Bedell Smith, December 2, 1952

 

“There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions — I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.”
Robert Bigelow,  Founder of Bigelow Aerospace. – Billionaire entrepreneur and pioneer in the private sector aerospace industry interviewed on CBS 60 Minutes, May 2017  (2)  

 

“It now seems quite clear that Earth is not the only inhabited planet. There is evidence that the bulk of the stars in the sky have planetary systems. Recent research concerning the origin of life on Earth suggests that the physical and chemical processes leading to the origin of life occur rapidly in the early history of the majority of planets within our Milky Way galaxy–perhaps as many as a million–are inhabited by technical civilizations in advance of our own. Interstellar space flight is far beyond our present technical capabilities, but there seems to be no fundamental physical objections to preclude, from our own vantage point, the possibility of its development by other civilizations.”
Carl Sagan, Ph.D. (Late Professor of Astronomy and Space Sciences, Cornell University) (2)

 

“It is time for the truth to be brought out… Behind the scenes high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects.”
Former CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, signed statement to Congress, August 22, 1960. A true patriot (2)

 

“First of all, I told a magazine this past January that, as an underdeveloped country with regards to the UFO problem, Japan had to take into account what should be done about the UFO question, and that we had to spend more time on these matters. In addition, I said that someone had to solve the UFO problem with far reaching vision at the same time. Secondly, I believe it is a reasonable time to take the UFO problem seriously as a reality… I hope that this Symposium will contribute to peace on Earth from the point of view of outer space, and take the first step toward the international cooperation in the field of UFOs.”
Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan, in a letter to Mayor Shiotani of Hakui City, dated June 24, 1990, endorsing an upcoming Space & UFO Symposium

 

“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously.”
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, the USSR’s last head of state (1985 – 1991), Soviet Youth,’ 4 May 1990

 

“The type of UFO reports that are most intriguing are close-range sightings of machine-like objects of unconventional nature and unconventional performance characteristics, seen at low altitudes, and sometimes even on the ground. The general public is entirely unaware of the large number of such reports that are coming from credible witnesses… When one starts searching for such cases, their number are quite astonishing. Also, such sightings appear to be occurring all over the globe.”
Prof. James E. McDonald (past head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Arizona), “Are UFOs Extraterrestrial Surveillance Craft?”, talk given at AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics), 1968

 

“Around Szolnok many UFO reports have been received from the Ministry of Defense, which obviously and logically means that they [UFOs] know very well where they have to land and what they have to do. It is remarkable indeed that the Hungarian newspapers, in general newspapers everywhere, reject the reports of the authorities.”
George Keleti, Minister of Defense, Hungary, in article by Attila Lenart entitled “Ask a Question to the Minister of Defense: George Keleti, Are You Afraid of a UFO Invasion?”, Nepszava, Budapest, August 18, 1994

 

“…many of the reports that cannot be explained have come from intelligent and technically well qualified individuals whose integrity cannot be doubted. In addition, the reports received officially by the Air Force include only a fraction of the spectacular reports which are publicized by many private UFO organizations.”
Major General E. B. LeBailly (Director of Information, Office of the Secretary of the Air Force) (2)

 

“The flying saucer situation is not all imaginary… something is flying around.”
July 1947 FBI/Army Intelligence Report (declassified by the United States Freedom of Information Act in 1976)

 

“To be honest Macey…There’s been no ‘DIRECT contact’ with aliens yet, when we do, I’ll let you know.”
President Barack Obama to 6-year-old on Live ELLEN show, 12 February 2016 (2)

 



We or at least some of us interpreted their visits as threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. They took corrective measures to avoid our aircraft.  It’s ironic that the US should be fighting monstrously expensive wars, illegibly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”
Paul T. Hellyer, Former national Defense Minister (1963 – 1967) and Deputy Prime Minister of Canada

 

“The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs. For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee for investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent.”
U.S. Major Donald Keyhoe, during a live TV broadcast on CBS in 1958 in which he was pulled from the air when he began to deviate from the prepared format of the programme

 

“UFOs sighted in Indonesia are identical with those sighted in other countries. Sometimes they pose a problem for our air defense and once we were obliged to open fire on them.”
Air Marshall Roesmin Nurjadin, Commander-in-Chief of the Indonesian Air Force, in a letter to Yusuke J. Matsumura dated May 5, 1967, reprinted in Good ibid

 

“I’m not at liberty to discuss the government’s knowledge of extraterrestrial UFO’s at this time. I am still personally being briefed on the subject.”
Richard Nixon, U.S. President from 1969 to 1974

 

“We know there is life on other planets, but we must make peace here first.”
From the year 2010, when the Tajik Mayor, said there is life on other planets and that peace and unity on Earth is necessary.Chairman of the upper house of Parliament Mahmadsaid Ubaidulloev noted that “war is very dangerous”, before stating the above (2)

 

“We have stacks of reports about flying saucers. We take them seriously when you consider we have lost many men and planes trying to intercept them.”
U.S. General Benjamin Chidlaw, Head of Air Defense Command. Uncontested quote, as told to investigative writer Robert Gardner in February of 1953 (2)

 

“The least improbable explanation is that these things UFO’s are artificial and controlled. My opinion for some time has been that they have an extraterrestrial origin.”
DR. MAURICE BIOT Leading aerodynamicists and mathematical physicists Life Magazine, April 7, 1952

 

“The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating even higher than the H Bomb.  Flying saucers exist.  Their Modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.”
Wilbert Smith (in a top secret Canadian Government Memorandum, November 21, 1950

 

“We can say that we learned to summon UFOs in Vladimirovka. To do this, we dramatically increased the number of military flights and movement of the equipment. If the intensity on our side increased, UFOs appeared with the probability of 100 percent,”
Vasily Yeremenko, Major General of FIB in reserve, academician of the Academy of Security, Defense and Law Enforcement –  The first to speak to the press

 

“My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed ‘surveillance’.”
DR. James McDonald, Atmospheric Physicist, Congressional Hearing 1968

 

“There are unidentified flying objects. That is, there are a hard core of cases–perhaps 20 to 30 percent in different studies–for which there is no explanation. We can only imagine what purpose lies behind the activities of these quiet, harmlessly cruising objects that time and again approach the Earth. The most likely explanation, it seems to me, is that they are simply watching what we are up to…”
Margaret Mead Ph.D. Stated in 1974. Was arguably the most renowned anthropologist of all time. (Mead, Margaret, “UFOs – Visitors from Outer Space?,” Redbook, vol. 143, September 1974.)

 

“After all, although the unidentified flying objects are unknown devices, there seems to be enough evidence available to convince that they are real rather than imaginary.”
Congressman Edgar W. Hiestand, Letter to Air Force Secretary Dudley Sharp suggesting release of full information about saucers September 1960

 

“When the long awaited solution to the UFO problem comes, I believe that it will prove to be not merely the next small step in the march of science, but a mighty and totally unexpected quantum leap. We had a job to do, whether right or wrong, to keep the public from getting excited.”
Dr. J Allen Hynek, Astrophysicist and Professor of Astronomy at Ohio State University, Chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University, Scientific adviser of US Air Force´s UFO research Project Sign, Project Grudge and Project Blue Book

 

“The UFO ‘intervention process’ will have a major impact on the U.S. and Russian governments. This will be the catalyst that will break the ‘conspiracy of silence.”
Stanley A. Fulham, Captain from the Royal Canadian Air Force, Deceased Canadian former NORAD officer, Dec. 3, 2010

 

“The phenomenon of UFOs is real. I know that there are scientific organisations which study the problem.”
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev on 26th April 1990

 

“The UFO phenomenon being reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious.”
General Nathan Twining Chairman, Joint chiefs of staff (Memorandum to Commanding General of the Army, September 23, 1947)

 

“I believe that UFOs are spaceships or extraterrestrial craft… The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data. Maybe when this group of nations acquires more precise and definite information, it will be possible to release the news to the world.”
Air Force General Carlos Castro Cavero, Spanish Air Force and former Commander of Spain’s Third Aerial Region, in an interview with J. J. Benitez, La Gaceta del Norte, Balboa, Spain, June 27, 1976

 

“Taking into account the facts that we have gathered from the observers and from the location of their observations, we concluded that there generally can be said to be a material phenomenon behind the observations. In 60% of the cases reported here, the description of this phenomenon is apparently one of a flying machine whose origin, modes of lifting and/or propulsion are totally outside our knowledge.”
Dr. Claude Poher, Ph.D. in astronomy, founder and first director of GEPAN, the UFO investigative office under the French government’s National Center for Space Sciences which analyzed reports from the Gendarmerie from 1974 through 1978, writing in the GEPAN Report to the Scientific Committee, June, 1978, Vol 1, Chapter 4

 

“The hassle over the word ‘proof’ boils down to one question:
What constitutes proof?  –  Does a UFO have to land at the River Entrance to the Pentagon, near the Joint Chiefs of Staff offices? Or is it proof when a ground radar station detects a UFO, sends a jet to intercept it, the jet pilot sees it, and locks on with his radar, only to have the UFO streak away at a phenomenal speed? Is it proof when a jet pilot fires at a UFO and sticks to his story even under the threat of court-martial? Does this constitute proof?”
Edward J. Ruppelt, who headed the U.S Air Force’s secret investigation of UFOs in the early 1950s, once wrote (2)

 

“They want a hearing, I think they deserve a hearing and I want to be a part of that. The cloak of secrecy has become more and more obvious to me, the people who pulled the cloak of secrecy over this – why did they do that? I think we need to understand why they did it so we can get this thing reversed. There’s something out there, there’s clearly something out there and the American people have a right to know.”
Former U.S. Congress Person Roscoe Bartlett (2)

 

“We heard the material was coming to Wright Field. It was brought into our material evaluation labs. I don’t know how it arrived but the boys who tested it said it was very unusual”
U.S Brigadier General Arthur Exon (former commanding officer of Wright-Patterson AFB)

 

“Air Force interceptors still pursue UFOs as a matter of national security to this country and to determine technical aspects involved.”
U.S. Air Force General and Commander, Military Air Transport Service Joe W. Kelly, 1957

 

“Flying saucers are real. Too many good men have seen them, that don’t have hallucinations.”
U.S Army Captain Eddie Rickenbacker. World War I Air Ace

 

“Ocean UFO’s often show up wherever our or NATO’s fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea.”
Navy intelligence veteran, Captain 1st rank Igor Barklay (2)

 

“More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any “scientific” explanation… I am convinced that these objects do exist and that they are not manufactured by any nation on Earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from some extraterrestrial source.”
Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Air Force Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, printed in Sunday Dispatch, London, July 11, 1954

 

“Dave, if I were to tell you what happened at Roswell you would never see the world in the same way again.”
Air Advisor to President Truman General Robert Landry talking to his grandson

 

“There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy, that we have no means of stopping them coming here … [and] That there is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.”
Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (1)

 

“While working under President Eisenhower,I discovered that Eisenhower had a keen interest in UFOs, but that he came to realize that he had lost control of the subject”
U.S Brigadier General Stephen Lovekin worked for President Eisenhower and has first hand experience of UFO coverup and the infamous Project Blue Book

 

“We have, indeed, been contacted — perhaps even visited — by extraterrestrial beings, and the U.S. government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”
Victor Marchetti, former Special Assistant to the Executive Director of the CIA, in an article written by him for Second Look entitled “How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon”, Vol 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May, 1979

 

“I’ve been convinced for a long time that the flying saucers are real and interplanetary. In other words, we are being watched by beings from outer space.”
Albert M. Chop, Deputy Public Relations Director, NASA Former USAF spokesman for Project Blue Book

 

“I am completely convinced that UFOs have an out-of-world basis.”
DR. Walther Riedel, research director at the Nazi rocket research establishement at Peenemunde

 

“During my public career in Congress, as Vice President and President, I made various requests for information on UFOs. The official authorities always denied the UFO allegations.”

“In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment of the subject. I have taken special interest in these (UFO) accounts because many of the latest reported sightings have been made in my home state of Michigan..”
U.S. President Gerald Ford, 38th President, serving from 1974 to 1977 – (during his years as a US Congressman)

 

“Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, laser and fiber optic technologies, particle beams, electromagnetic propulsion systems, depleted uranium projectiles, stealth capabilities, and many others. How do I know? I was in charge.”
Colonel Philip Corso, Head of Foreign Technology at the U.S. Army’s R&D
Director of Intelligence President Eisenhower’s White House National Security Staff

 

“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,”
Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher (2)

 

“Reliable reports indicate there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds and controlled by thinking intelligences.”
Admiral Delmer S. FAHMEY, Former Head U.S. Navy Guided-Missile Program – Public statement 1957

 

“The Air Force studies an average of four photos a month showing alleged unidentified objects in the sky.We never rule out the extraterrestrial hypothesis, but we also know that they can be physical particles or light displays”
Uruguay Air Force Chief Col. Ariel Sanchez – 2010

 

“The definitive resolution of the UFO enigma will not come about unless and until the problem is subjected to open and extensive scientific study by the normal procedures of established science and administrators in universities.”

“Although…the scientific community has tended to minimize the significance of the UFO phenomenon, certain individual scientists have argued that the phenomenon is both real and significant… To a scientist, the main source of hard information (other than his own experiments [and] observations) is provided by the scientific journals. With rare exceptions, scientific journals do not publish reports of UFO observations. The decision not to publish is made by the editor acting on the advice of reviewers. This process is self-reinforcing; the apparent lack of data confirms the view that there is nothing to the UFO phenomenon, and this view works against the presentation of relevant data…”
Peter A. Sturrock, Ph.D. (Professor, Space Science and Astrophysics, and deputy director of the Center for Space Sciences and Astrophysics, Stanford University)

 

“I would not spend one further moment on the subject of UFOs if I didn’t seriously feel that the UFO phenomenon is real and that efforts to investigate and understand it, and eventually to solve it, could have a profound effect – perhaps even be the springboard to mankind’s outlook on the universe.”
Dr. J Allen Hynek, Astrophysicist and Professor of Astronomy at Ohio State University, Chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University, Scientific adviser of US Air Force´s UFO research Project Sign, Project Grudge and Project Blue Book

 

“I must admit that any favorable mention of the flying saucers by a scientist amounts to extreme heresy and places the one making the statement in danger of excommunication by the scientific theocracy. Nevertheless, in recent years I have investigated the story of the unidentified flying object (UFO), and I am no longer able to dismiss the idea lightly.”
Frank B. Salisbury, Ph.D. (Professor, Plant Physiology, Utah State University) (2)

 

” I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth.”
U.S. President Harry S. Truman, April 1950 he passed this message through his press secretary

 

“I must say that if listeners could see for themselves the mass of reports coming in from the airborne gendarmerie, from the mobile gendarmerie, and from the gendarmerie charged with the job of conducting investigations, all of which reports are forwarded by us to the National Center for Space Studies, then they would see that it is all pretty disturbing.”

“I believe that the attitude of spirit that we must vis-a-vis this phenomenon is an open one, that is to say that it doesn’t consist in denying a priori, as our ancestors of previous centuries did deny many things that seem nowadays perfectly elementary.”
M. Robert Galley, French Minister of Defense, interviewed on radio by Jean-Claude Bourret, February 21, 1974

 

“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, that seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon”
Dr. Brian O’leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor

 

“It is true that I was denied access to a facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, because I never got in. I can’t tell you what was inside. We both know about the rumors (concerning a captured UFO and crew members). I have never seen what I would call a UFO, but I have intelligent friends who have.”
Barry Goldwater, US Senator, Air Force General and Presidential candidate (quoted from a letter dated April 11, 1979) (2)(3)

 

“From a scientific and engineering standpoint, it is unacceptable to simply ignore substantial numbers of unexplained observations…the only promising approach is a continuing moderate-level effort with emphasis on improved data collection and objective means…involving available remote sensing capabilities and certain software changes.” [emphasis added]
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics UFO Subcommittee (1967)

 

“A purely psychological explanation is ruled out…the discs show signs of intelligent guidance, by quasi-human pilots…the authorities in possession of important information should not hesitate to enlighten the public as soon and as completely as possible.”
Dr. Carl Gustav Jung, Pioneer of psychiatry, stated in 1954

 

“During the 1955 Warsaw Pact exercises, a radar station in the area of Warsaw recognized two targets over the Gulf of Gdansk. The targets were moving at a speed of 2,300 km/h at an altitude of 20 thousand meters. In those days there was no aircraft with such performance. At one point it was noticed that the two objects did a 90 degrees turn, literally on the spot with no turning radius. This maneuver at such high speeds cannot be done. Most modern aircraft are unable to do so even today, and that was 50 years ago”.
Interview with Col. Grundmanem, the former head of “Air Traffic, Air Force and Air Defense”, who was responsible for gathering reports regarding UFOs (2)

 

“These UFOs are interplanetary devices systematically observing the earth, either manned or under remote control, or both.”
“Information on UFOs, including sighting reports, has been and is still being officially withheld.”
U.S. Colonel Joseph J. Bryan III, Founder of the CIA’s psychological warfare staff, special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force, advisor to NATO, and board member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomenon (NICAP)

 

“No agency in this country or Russia is able to duplicate at this time the speeds and accelerations which radars and observers indicate these flying objects are able to achieve… there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds.”
U.S Admiral Delmer S. Fahrney, former head of the Navy’s guided-missile program, printed in New York Times, January 17, 1957, p. 31

 

“We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped.” When asked by whom, he replied: “The people of other worlds.”
Dr. Herman Oberth, German rocket engineer who was taken to the U.S. after the war and became one of the fathers of modern spaceflight

 

“In any case, the Air Force has arrived to the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced within Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations compiled in this [SOBEPS] book, reinforced by the reports of the night of March 30-31 [1990], have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorized aerial activities have taken place. Until now, not a single trace of aggressiveness has been signalled; military or civilian air traffic has not been perturbed nor threatened. We can therefore advance that the presumed activities do not constitute a direct menace.

The day will come undoubtedly when the phenomenon will be observed with technological means of detection and collection that won’t leave a single doubt about its origin. This should lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time. A mystery that continues to the present. But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion.”
Major-General Wilfred de Brouwer, Deputy Chief, Royal Belgian Air Force, “Postface” in SOBEPS’ Vague d’OVNI sur la Belgique – Un Dossier Exceptionnel, Brussels: SOBEPS, 1991

 

“We find ourselves faced by powers which are far stronger than we had hitherto assumed, and whose base is at present unknown to us. More I cannot say at present. We are now engaged in entering into closer contact with those powers, and in six or nine months time it may be possible to speak with some precision on the matter.”
Dr. Wernher von Braun, the first Director of NASA, from July 1960 to February 1970, and one of the world’s first and most acclaimed rocket engineers, stated in 1959

 

“These space craft occasionally roam our skies and my theory is they have been coming here for thousands of years,”
Major George Filer, Air Force Intelligence Officer who not only had an extraordinary encounter with a massive UFO on radar over the United Kingdom, but later, in the 1970’s while he was at McGuire Air..

 

“Mr. President, anyone who can cross millions of miles of space will be able to take care of themselves when they get there. Don’t start something you can’t finish.”
Albert Einstein (talking to President Truman about the “shoot-them-down” order of UFOs flying over Washington DC on July 19, 1952 – As quoted by national radio host Frank Edwards, date unknown*)

 

“I’ve known truly honest, deeply committed members of the government, members of the administrations, members of the congress and those who hold cabinet positions that, even before today, have been particularly prominent and have been wanting to end the “truth embargo.” Regardless of what we think of the evidence at this point, we know that there needs to be hearings, and there needs to be official hearings.”
Former U.S. Congress Person Merrill Cook (2)

 

“Much evidence tells us UFOs have been tracked by radar; so, UFOs are real and they may come from outer space…photographs and various materials show scientifically that there are more advanced people piloting the saucers and motherships.”
General Kanshi Ishikawa, Japan’s Air Self-Defense Force, Chief of Air Staff, 1967.

 

“From time to time in the history of science, situations have arisen in which a problem of ultimately enormous importance went begging for adequate attention simply because that problem appeared to involve phenomena so far outside the current bounds of scientific knowledge that it was not even regarded as a legitimate subject of serious scientific concern. That is precisely the situation in which the UFO problem now lies. One of the principal results of my own recent intensive study of the UFO enigma is this: I have become convinced that the scientific community, not only in this country but throughout the world, has been casually ignoring as nonsense a matter of extraordinary scientific importance.”
Dr. James E. McDonald – Senior Physicist, Institute of Atmospheric Physics” at the University of Arizona – In a prepared statement before the U.S. Congress’ House Committee on Science and Astronautics, delivered on July 29, 1968

 

“I am convinced there was thought behind the thing’s manoeuvres.”
U.S. Lieutenant George Gorman, F51 pilot after being in a 30 minute dogfight with a small UFO in 1948

 

“Something is going on in the skies… that we do not understand. If all the airline pilots and Air Force pilots who have seen UFOs and sometimes chased them… have been the victims of hallucinations, then an awful lot of pilots should be taken off and forbidden to fly.”
Captain Kervendal, French Gendarmerie

 

“This day is celebrated to raise awareness about the existence of UFO’s and with that intelligent beings from outer space.”
Finance minister Arun Jaitley (India), July 3 2014

 

“There are no grounds for us to deny that there are unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and some life-form that controls them,”
Defence minister Shigeru Ishiba (Japan) made a statement in response to a parliamentary question of how the Defense Force would respond to UFOs appearing in Japanese airspace, December 20, 2007

 

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”
Ben Rich (1925-1995), Lockheed Skunk Works CEO, Regarded as the ‘father of stealth’

 

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are spaceships from another solar system. There is no doubt in my mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system.
Dr. Herman Oberth, Nazi rocket engineer who was taken to the U.S. after the war and became one of the fathers of modern spaceflight (2)

 

“I am sure that unidentified flying objects exist, otherwise it is impossible to explain the Nazca Lines (In Peru), isn’t it?”
2007 – Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura, was unhappy with the government’s official view, rejecting the existence of UFOs

 

“I definitely believe they (UFOs) exist.”
Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura (Japan – 2006)

 

“For thirty years, I’ve held that image in my mind. What I saw was a circular object that looked like two pie plates put on top of each other with a golf ball on top. It was a classic flying saucer,and it shot a beam of something at our warhead”
U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Robert M. Jacobs

 

“I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La. case the Army grabbed it + would not let us have it for cursory examination.”
John Edgar Hoover – The first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States in a letter from July 15th, 1947; responding to the urging of others for the FBI to stay out of the UFO business (2)(3)

 

“an extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet. Something is monitoring the planet and they are monitoring it very cautiously.”
Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and 2008 presidential candidate

 

“Of course UFOs are real–and they are interplanetary…..The cumulative evidence for the existence of UFOs is quite overwhelming and I accept the fact of their existence.”
Air Chief Marshal LORD DOWDING, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Air Force Fighter, Command during the Battle of Britain – Statement made in August of 1954

 

“I, Clark C. McClelland, former ScO [Spacecraft Operator], Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on his 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with two tethered US NASA astronauts! I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods. I observed this incident for about one minute and seven seconds. Plenty of time to memorize all that I was observing. It was an ET and alien star ship,”
Clark McClelland, former NASA engineer he wrote on his website (2)

 

“Well, if I had been briefed on that [UFOs], I am sure it would have been classified.”
Vice President Dick Chaney (Diane Rehm Talk Show, April 2001)

 

“The UFOs are no figment of the immagination.”
Lieutenant-Colonel Lou Corbin, U.S. Army Intelligence

 

“The important thing now is for us to discard any preconceived notions about UFOs and to organize on a global scale a calm, sensation-free and strictly scientific study of this strange phenomenon. The subject and aims of the investigation are so serious that they justify all efforts. It goes without saying that international cooperation is vital.” (Zigel, F., Soviet Life, No. 2 (137), February 1968.)
DR. FELIX Y. ZIGEL Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy Moscow Aviation Institute “Unidentified Flying Objects,” Soviet Life, February 1968

 

“I certainly believe in aliens in space, and that they are indeed visiting our planet. They may not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities.”
Barry Goldwater – US Senator, Air Force Major-General, Presidential candidate and Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee (2)

 

“It appears a much more advanced civilization is controlling us. Apparently the aliens are controlling that we don’t do anything bad on Earth. We conclude this by their appearance on areas where our nuclear and chemical bases are located and large hydro technical facilities and regions where the situation is unstable. What might have happened on other planets they want to prevent happening here.”
Hero of the Soviet Union, Honourary Military Pilot of the Russian Federation Colonel-General Nikolai Antoshkin (2)

 

“Of course now we know that is not so – but we may conclude that it was an intelligent phenomenon, a technological phenomenon and a phenomenon that cannot be linked with anything we know on Earth.”
Roberto Pinotti, president of Italy’s National UFO Centre

 

“UFOs are conceived and directed by intelligent beings of a very high order, and they are propelled by distorting the gravitational field, converting gravity into usable energy.”
Dr. Herman Oberth, German rocket engineer who was taken to the U.S. after the war and became one of the fathers of modern spaceflight

 

“Inside the Skunk Works (Lockheed’s secret research and development entity), we were a small, intensely cohesive group consisting of about fifty veteran engineers and designers and a hundred or so expert machinists and shop workers. Our forte was building technologically advanced airplanes of small number and of high class for highly secret missions.”
Ben Rich (1925-1995), Lockheed Skunk Works CEO, Regarded as the ‘father of stealth’

“Yes, I’m a believer in both categories. I feel everything is possible. Many of our man-made UFOs are Un-Funded Opportunities. There are two types of UFOs, the ones we build, and the ones they build.” “

 

“After the plane from Roswell arrived with the material I asked the base commander to personally transport it in a B-26 to Major General McMullen in Washington DC. The entire operation was conducted under strictest secrecy. The weather balloon explanation for the material was a cover story to divert the attention of the press.”
U.S Brigadier General Thomas Dubose, Commanding Officer of Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Affadavit 09/16/01

 

“The number of thoughtful, intelligent, educated people in full possession of their faculties who have “seen something” and described it, grows every day… We can… say categorically that mysterious objects have indeed appeared and continue to appear in the sky that surrounds us.”
General Lionel M. Chassin, Commanding General of the French Air Forces, and General Air Defense Coordinator of the Allied Air Forces of NATO, in foreword to Aime Michel’s “Flying Saucers and the Straight-Line Mystery”, Criterion Books, 1958

 

“Flying Saucers Come from a Distant World”
Professor Hermann Oberth, Rocket engineer – The American Weekly, October 24, 1954

 

“Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. The Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its embassies in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela.”

“We can no longer think… is it true? Is it not true? Are they truths or are they lies–if we believe or if we don’t believe–no! There are already numerous considerations which make the existence of these beings [extraterrestrials] into a certainty we cannot doubt.”
MONSIGNOR CORRADO BALDUCCI, Roman Catholic theologian of the Vatican Curia, a close friend of the pope, a long-time exorcist for the Archdiocese of Rome, and a Prelate of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Society for the Propagation of the Faith Interview, on Italian national television

 

“I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth. I feel that we need to have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the earth concerning any type of encounter, and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly fashion… For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.”

Colonel Gordon Cooper, Former NASA Astronaut, Aeronautical Engineer and test pilot. One of the seven original Astronauts in Project Mercury, the first manned space program of the United States (in an address to the UN, 1985)

 

“That it could be an aircraft constructed on this earth, I do not believe possible.”
Commander Juan Barrera, in command of Aquirre Cerda airbase in Chile, commenting on a UFO he allegedly witnessed

 

After I give lectures—on almost any subject—I am often asked, “Do you believe in UFOs?”. I’m always struck by how the question is phrased, the suggestion that this is a matter of belief and not evidence. I’m almost never asked, “How good is the evidence that UFOs are alien spaceships?
Carl Sagan, The Demon Haunted World, 1995

 

“You now face a new world, a world of change. We speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy.”
U.S. President Harry S. Truman’s top General Douglas MacArthur farewell speech to the United States Military Academy on May 12, 1962

 

“The hassle over the word ‘proof’ boils down to one question: What constitutes proof?”
“Does a UFO have to land at the River Entrance to the Pentagon, near the Joint Chiefs of Staff offices? Or is it proof when a ground radar station detects a UFO, sends a jet to intercept it, the jet pilot sees it, and locks on with his radar, only to have the UFO streak away at a phenomenal speed? Is it proof when a jet pilot fires at a UFO and sticks to his story even under the threat of court-martial? Does this constitute proof?”
Edward J. Ruppelt, who headed the U.S Air Force’s secret investigation of UFOs in the early 1950s, Director of Project Grudge from late 1951 until it became Project Blue Book

 

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. Trillions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have deliberately been kept in the dark.”
Paul T. Hellyer, Former national Defense Minister (1963 – 1967) and Deputy Prime Minister of Canada

 

“In my opinion I think they were worried that it would panic the public so they started telling lies about it. And then I think they had to tell another lie to cover their first lie, now they don’t know how to get out of it. Now it’s going to be so embarrassing to admit that all these administrations have told so many untruths, it would be embarrassing getting out of it. There are a number of extraterrestrial vehicles out there cruising around.”
Gordon Cooper, Former NASA Astronaut, Aeronautical Engineer and test pilot. One of the seven original Astronauts in Project Mercury, the first manned space program of the United States

 

“We were naturally anxious to get hold of one of the [UFOs]. We told pilots to do practically anything in reason, even if they had to grab one by the tail.”
Major Jeremiah Boggs, U.S. Air Force – (Note: a recent visitor has complained that this quote misrepresents Boggs.  Let it be known that Boggs was an “anti-UFO” guy.)

 

“I looked out the window and saw this white light.It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and said, ‘Have you ever seen anything like that?’ He was shocked and he said, ‘nope.’ And I said to him: ‘Let’s follow it!’ We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light.We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens. When I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it.”
Ronald Reagan, U.S. President from 1980 to 1988

 

“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4. ”     More about radars and UFOs
Documents released by the National Security Agency (NSA) reveal what is recorded when a UFO is being tracked on radar. HERE is one example. HERE is a four page U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and NSA report describing a particular encounter in great detail.

 

“You now face a new world, a world of change. We speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy.”
U.S. President Harry S. Truman’s top General Douglas MacArthur, Wake Island, October 15, 1950

 

“In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
U.S President Eisenhower’s farewell address to the nation, January 1961

 

“I made an effort to find out what was in the building at Wright-Patterson Air Force base, and I was understandably denied this request. It is still classified above Top Secret.”
Barry Goldwater – U.S. Senator, Air Force Major-General, Presidential candidate and Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee – 1975, letter to friend General Curtis LeMay refusing him access in 1964 to the Blue Room at Wright Patterson AFB (where alien hardware and bodies were rumored to be held) (2)(3)

 

“His Excellency recognizes the importance of the [UFO] matter, to the extent that within the Ministry of Aeronautics there exists a Bureau in charge of studying the matter, receiving, analyzing and archiving chronologically the phenomena observed in Brazilian airspace that comes to the attention of this Ministry.”
Colonel Sergio Candiota da SILVA, Brazilian Air Force, Assistant to the Minister of Aeronautics –  December 19, 1988

 

“Of course it is possible that UFO’s really do contain aliens as many people believe, and the Government is hushing it up.”
Professor Stephen Hawking

 

“We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars. First, you have to understand that we will not get to the stars using chemical propulsion. Second, we have to devise a new propulsion technology. What we have to do is find out where Einstein went wrong.”
Ben Rich (1925-1955), Lockheed Skunk Works CEO, Regarded as the ‘father of stealth’

 

”I wanted to thank you for bringing E.T. to the White House. We really enjoyed your movie”, and then he looked around the room and said, “And there are a number of people in this room who know that everything on that screen is absolutely true.’ And he said it without smiling!”
Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States (1981–1989) to Steven Spielberg after bringing ”E.T. – The extra terrestrial” to the White House theatre, June 27, 1981

 

“There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.”
Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska, 2011

 

“I have met several leaders of other planets”
Jean-Claude Juncker – Prime Minister in Luxembourg (1995-2013), Semi-permanent president of the group of finance ministers from EU (2004), and President of European Commission (2014-) (2)
