The witness stated that the UFO had three levels of windows and lights, resembling a "really long 3-story office building."

UFOs: From psychology to air traffic, are we closer now to an answer?

June 30, 2024, 1:10 a.m. • BBC.com • (4 Minute Read)
The latest series of the BBC's Paranormal delves into alleged UFO sightings, exploring events such as the 1977 incident at Broad Haven Primary School in Wales. As the public's fascination with extraterrestrial life persists, the use of modern technology, including smartphones and air traffic tracking apps, has positioned experts to better investigate UFO phenomena. However, alongside the cultural influence of UFO sightings, psychologists are considering the impact of eyewitness testimony, group conformity, and media coverage in shaping these reports. Aerospace engineer Dr. Ryan Marks suggests that air traffic, military activity, and experimental aircraft could offer rational explanations for many sightings. Despite the increased accessibility of tracking technology, the study of UFOs continues to prompt public skepticism and debate.

The schoolboys who saw a UFO and drew identical pictures to prove it

June 15, 2024, 1:48 a.m. • Daily Mail • (33 Minute Read)
In 1977, a group of schoolboys from Broad Haven Primary in Wales reported seeing a silver, cigar-shaped aircraft and a silver man with pointed ears in fields near their school. To prove their sighting, the headmaster asked them to draw what they had seen, and the results were near identical. Nearly 50 years later, eyewitnesses, including David Davies, still stand by their accounts, despite UFO skeptics and prank theories, such as a businessman admitting to walking around in a silver firefighter's suit as a prank. The series of UFO sightings and strange encounters turned Broad Haven into a mecca for conspiracy theorists and UFO hunters, leaving many unanswered questions and a lasting mystery. The story is the subject of a new four-part BBC documentary, "Paranormal: The Village That Saw Aliens."

Angels or Aliens? Some Researchers Say Vatican Archives Hold UFO Secrets

June 13, 2024, 1:16 p.m. • The Tablet Catholic Newspaper • (4 Minute Read)
A group of scientists and researchers are seeking access to the Vatican Apostolic Archives to uncover information about UFOs and the paranormal, believing there may be traces amid the 50 miles of shelves holding everything from handwritten papal notes to presidential missives. The decades-long effort gained momentum in 2023 following former U.S. intelligence official David Grusch’s congressional testimony alleging the Vatican’s involvement in an international cover-up of alien secrets. Grusch claimed Pope Pius XII “backchanneled” information to the United States about a crashed UFO recovered by fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. The Vatican’s archivists are in a “mad rush to digitize what they have; they have to prioritize what they think is most important,” says Diana Walsh Pasulka. Interest among non-Catholic researchers in uncovering paranormal secrets in the Vatican has spanned decades and has roots in a culturally influential retreat center in California. Although the staff at the Vatican archives acknowledge that their vast shelves contain accounts of miracles, they deny that any of their holdings pertain to aliens.

Energy czar makes UFO admission during GOP lawmaker's fiery exchange - and that's not where it ends

June 13, 2024, 8 a.m. • Fox News • (7 Minute Read)
The Department of Energy's admission about UFOs and their potential involvement with special operations missions has sparked conversations and debates. During a Congressional Oversight Committee hearing, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., questioned Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Jennifer Granholm about UFO sightings near nuclear sites. Granholm's "I have no knowledge of that" response to Luna's inquiry about reverse engineering crashed alien technology, and her confirmation that the DOE works with a counter-terrorism task force, indicated a significant admission. This statement has fueled speculation about a potential collaboration between the DOE and the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in retrieving crashed UFOs. Despite JSOC denying these allegations, Luna's bold confrontations have stirred public interest and skepticism, leading to further questions concerning UFO incursions and the DOE's protocols for handling such incidents. These developments suggest a growing need for transparency and accountability within the federal government regarding UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena).

Harvard Scientists Say There May Be an Unknown, Technologically Advanced Civilization Hiding on Earth

June 11, 2024, 3:09 p.m. • Futurism • (2 Minute Read)
A team of researchers from Harvard and Montana Technological University has put forth a provocative hypothesis that suggests the presence of an unknown, technologically advanced civilization concealed on or near Earth, possibly dwelling underground or walking among humans. Sightings of Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as UFOs, have sparked this speculation. The researchers have proposed various possibilities, including the existence of a remnant form of an ancient civilization, an independently evolved intelligent species, or "earthbound angels" with magical capabilities. These far-fetched hypotheses have been met with skepticism but are considered by the researchers as worthy of genuine consideration in the pursuit of understanding the ongoing empirical mystery of UAP. The interest in unexplained sightings of UFOs by military personnel has grown considerably, but despite considerable attention and scrutiny, no concrete evidence of extraterrestrial life has been found.

Don't Expect Aliens Anytime Soon: NASA Scientists Discuss The Challenges James Webb Faces In the Hunt For ET

June 11, 2024, 12:21 p.m. • The Debrief • (5 Minute Read)
NASA scientists recently discussed the challenges faced by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in the hunt for extraterrestrial life. They explained that while there are about 30 planets in the habitable zone, it's uncertain whether they are actually habitable or inhabited. The JWST uses transmission spectroscopy to study exoplanet atmospheres, but the process is challenging, particularly when it comes to detecting biosignatures that indicate the presence of life. Even the potential detection of the organic molecule dimethyl sulfide on a candidate Hycean planet in another solar system is inconclusive. However, NASA remains hopeful that JWST will pave the way for future discoveries, emphasizing that the search for alien life is an ongoing and formidable challenge.

UFO investigation launched in Japan after U.S. report designates region as "hotspot" for sightings

June 6, 2024, 2 p.m. • CBS News • (3 Minute Read)
An investigation into unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has been launched in Japan following a U.S. report designating the region as a "hotspot" for sightings. The Pentagon's revelation of 270 UFO sightings over 8 months has spurred Japanese lawmakers, including former defense ministers, to form a group focused on detecting and analyzing UFOs—also known as unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP). The group seeks to align Japan's perception with that of its ally, the U.S., particularly after concerns over suspected surveillance operations. The U.S. has established the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office to investigate UAPs and share declassified information with the public, prompting Japan to consider enhancing intelligence cooperation with the U.S. and forming its own equivalent investigative body. Given the potential threats posed by unknown airborne entities, the Japanese initiative is regarded as a significant step in addressing the challenges presented by modern warfare and espionage.

This development has stirred up excitement among alien enthusiasts, pointing to the potential existence of extraterrestrial life on Earth.
