Two Interesting UFO Developments

By | April 6, 2022

Hi Everyone,

While I’ve been spending most of my time going through ancient UFO history (sightings and politics in 2008), much to my chagrin, I learn that time doesn’t stop just for my convenience. In the last two days, two very interesting reports have come out and I just want to note them here and bring them to your attention, if you haven’t seen them yet. 

Both are definitely noteworthy. Both also are courtesy of The Sun — often derided as a tabloid but these are both good examples of reporting. Please check both of the articles, which are linked below.

One concerns new revelations about yet MORE encounters by the U.S. Navy with unexplained UAP/UFOs. 

Regarding this new Navy story, the main points are as follows:

  • The information came to filmmaker Dave Beaty, who has previously done excellent work on the USS Nimitz encounters. 
  • The event took place in October 2021 and involved the assault ship USS Kearsage.
  • It occurred off the east coast of the US.
  • At least two objects “lurked” near the Kearsage for several nights while it was on a training exercise.
  • The objects were described as “odd and menacing ‘balls of light’” 
  • The objects followed the Kearsage by a distance of half a mile while about 200 feet above the ocean.
  • The objects were spotted visually and avoided thermal targeting
  • The event was recorded on video but has not been released.
  • Countermeasures against the objects were ineffective.
  • The objects performed “swooping maneuvers” around the ship.

That’s a very impressive series of facts. Much respect to Dave Beatty for getting this story out, and we certainly want to learn everything else that we can about it. 

The other story concerns the results of a FOIA request initiated by The Sun, and this was a FOIA request from more than four years ago pertaining to documents of the AATIP program. It took that long to get a response from the DoD, but they have received 1,500 pages. It’s not clear where these documents are in order for us to read them (I don’t see them yet on the Black Vault). I assume we can read them soon. 

Here are the main bullet points:

  • The Pentagon released 1,574 pages of documentation from AATIP. 
  • This includes “government commissioned scientific reports” and “letters to the Pentagon regarding the UFO programme.”
  • It also includes reports into “research on the biological effects of UFO sightings on humans.” 
  • These effects include “burns, heart problems, sleep disturbances – and even bizarre occurrences such as ‘apparent abduction’ and ‘unaccounted for pregnancy'”.
  • The report added these injuries are often related to electromagnetic radiation.

There’s more in the article, which I encourage you to read. I am curious about some of this new information. I suspect some of it includes things we already knew, such as the titles of the 38 papers that Hal Puthoff requested from scientists as a way to understand future science that might be relevant to the UFO subject. This is something Puthoff discussed in 2018 and which was reported on previously. But there certainly seems to be new information in this cache and I would love to read it. I am sure it will be available soon. 

If someone knows whether the documents are available please let the rest of us know!

Fascinating news.

By the way, I keep finding incredible UFO encounters from earlier this century. I am about halfway through 2008 and it’s a doozy. I’ll have a very interesting presentation on that year pretty soon. Wow.

    “XXX-FILES UFOs had sexual encounters with witnesses and left one woman PREGNANT, bombshell Pentagon docs wildly claim”.

    These were posted on the forum here in the past few days. That was a Sun headline. And so the plot of the narrative thickens. It is certainly a change from thirty years of client cases i have heard which were strictly of human origin.

    I believe the die has been cast and to further my cliche’ ridden sentence, the writing of the official book appears to be on the proverbial wall. Particularly after hearing Jim Semivan’s comments the other day. I am a real pain, i know. It’s not my intention believe it or not.

      “The report – titled Anomalous Acute And Subacute Field Effects on Human and Biological Tissues – investigates injuries to “human observers by anomalous advanced aerospace systems”.

      It investigates the health impact on humans who have had paranormal experiences.

      The document features a “useful database” which listed the biological effects of UFO sightings on humans and their frequency, compiled US-based civilian research agency MUFON”

      From what i found reading the article i posted above about UFO’s having sexual encounters………………..MUFON seems to be the basis of the information in the article. I don’t know if MUFON is the go to place for Intelligence agencies, or what? Seriously. Unless this article is just click baiting. I can’t speak to everything the Sun published on UAP now. I find it rather confounding myself.

      about time they bring this to the public and stop ridiculing experiencers and abductees. I cant believe mr Elizondo did it. Anyway the main public still has a long way to go but hopefully theyll keep sharing ufo news and it just wont go away and denial will become harder each time.

    Hi Richard,

    I think the document The Sun is referring to is the Defense Intelligence Reference Document (DIRD) “Anomalous Acute and Subacute Field Effects on Human Biological Tissues”, (by Kit Green?), which I suspect has already been released, – but I’m not sure – and which you can read on the Black Vault website –

    https://documents2.theblackvault.com/documents/dia/AAWSAP-DIRDs/DIRD_26-DIRD_Anomalous_Acute_and_Subacute_Field_Effects_on_Human_Biological_Tissues.pdf

    Appendix A on pages 23-24 lists a catalogue by MUFON’s past Director, John F Schuessler, of UFO-Related Human Physiological Effects, including “sexual encounters” and “unaccounted-for pregnancy”.

    I suspect this was in the same cache of 38 papers that Hal Puthoff requested, which you mentioned.

    The Sun newspaper looks at this document in more detail here:

    https://www.the-sun.com/news/5053647/ufos-injuries-radiation-burns-pentagon-docs/

    This document is one of the 38 or so DIRDS available here:

    https://www.theblackvault.com/documentarchive/the-advanced-aviation-threat-identification-program-aatip-dird-report-research/

    Thomas Fessler and his team go through the document line by line here:

    Great to see this making the newspapers, though. It needs serious attention. Newsweek does an article about it here:

      Hi. I checked some of it out, including News Week piece and i find nothing new. I keep seeing repetition of the same thing for several years now. However, Nick Pope is sure getting around! 😉 I see some new hysteria may come about however, among the populace. And i didn’t know MUFON was part of DoD official intel? Oh well.
      Thanks for the links!

      I am a bit worried that i am going to be reading accounts of Elvis coming out of a UAP soon. I feel a bit like i am at the supermarket checkout counter in the 80’s again. But i guess i am old. 🙂

    Appreciate you keeping us up-to-date. I don’t listen to any mainstream news any longer and really none unless it comes from a source I trust such as here and a few other places and personalities. Cannot tolerate the lies and manipulation. I went ahead and tried those links but found myself nauseous thinking about the interest, ad revenue, etc… I’m sending their way by looking at it, I got through the first one barely and couldn’t do the second. Like it or not you are currently my main source for alien info after I’ve separated the wheat from the chaff. I jumped on board UFO Twitter for about a year and then covid hit and just about our entire Community lost its mind and bought all the baloney surrounding the plandemic.

    F y I – be easy on us non English Majors, we all got our expertise and writing is not it for many of us 😉

    I wonder why these objects keeping engaging with navy warships? I wonder have submarines been encountering these objects underwater? Hopefully we will see type of footage from the USS Kearsage encountering these things. It’s very interesting to read about the information that was in those documents, especially about abductions and unaccounted pregnancies, I was really surprised to see that in there. .Thanks for sharing Richard

      I don’t think that they single out the Navy. Looking at the history of these encounters, there are many engagements by Air Force and also military helicopters. It’s just that the leaks are all coming from the Navy. In my upcoming review of UFO encounters from 2008, I have once again found quite a few military encounters with UFOs that aren’t simply from the Navy. But these are all eyewitness accounts that lack the stamp of official approval. Even so, they look very legit to me. Of course one of the big encounters of 2008 was the USAF encounter with a massive UFO over Stephenville, Texas. But there are many others.

    Richard,

    Here’s an interview with Christopher Green about the document, which has appeared in the British press. It’s a tabloid, but I think you’ll still find it interesting:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10696303/Military-officers-suffered-injuries-UFO-encounters.html

    Quote:
    “EXCLUSIVE: ‘They woke up burned or injured.’ Top brain expert and ex-CIA officer reveals hundreds of military servicemen suffered brain damage or symptoms of the mysterious ‘Havana Syndrome’ and even DEATH after encountering UFOs
    — Forensic neuroimaging expert Christopher Green says he has dealt with ‘hundreds of patients’ who were injured or died after interacting with UFOs
    — ‘I’m the go-to physician in the Department of Defense for unexplained morbidity and mortality,’ he told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview
    — ‘I do look at injuries and mortality from unidentified UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena),’ he added
    — Green, a professor at the Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, was in 2010 commissioned to write a paper by a secret $22M defense program
    — He described symptoms of multiple sclerosis, brain damage, and burns among patients from ‘[Close Encounters of the Third and Fourth Kind] events’
    — He said symptoms of many of the cases were similar to ‘Havana Syndrome’ – a mysterious illness affecting diplomats and US officials in embassies around the world
    — Green said many of his patients experienced burns and brain damage and that around one in ten died within seven years of their reported encounter”

      How was the post hoc, propter hoc issue dealt with? That is, the persons studied manifested pathology, but was it caused by exposure to UAP? Was a statistical comparison done that showed a significant difference in risk ratios of persons exposed to UAP who then developed the different kinds of pathological changes and persons who were not exposed to UAP and developed the latter over comparable durations? If so, we have a finding. If not, we have a random association. Statistical is not always needed: burnt spots from landing pods and “still smoking bushes” in the Zamora sighting was a convincing anecdotal report; so were “welding burns to the eyes” of the police officer whose car collided with a UAP, leaving its windshield shattered and hood scratched, and whose wristwatch and squad car clock both lost forty minutes. Radiation-induced burns were inflicted by exposure to a craft in the Cash-Landrum case, but former Air Force counterintelligence agent Richard Doty later claimed that that crash involved a retro-engineered craft of human manufacture. Anecdotal reports of human morbidity associated with anecdotal reports of exposure to UAP of uncertain origin may or may not be causally linked. Timing and witnesses would seem useful. Yet, how did the mortality rate of UAP-exposed subjects compare with that of a cohort of similar age over the same seven years? A congeries of artifacts may give an association of A to B, but it may not be a causal one, not to mention the “tertium quid” artifact, wherein A is attributed to B, but because both are associated with C, the association seems causal. (Many examples come to mind of the associations of being overweight with something else (such as cardiovascular disease, hypothyroidism, depression or other psychiatric diagnosis, and cancer); I don’t think we know yet whether or how strongly causal the association is among them (or the directionality, for that matter). A cohort of persons who are overweight may show significantly elevated risk ratios for any, so that significant associations might emerge between depression and cancer, for example. The directionality issue is clearcut with hypothyroidism: the overweight cohort may show a significant association because hypothyroidism often manifests symptomatically as weight gain (among other signs).
      I am skeptical as a matter of cognitive hygiene, but I am not a skeptic in the sense of obsessively pursuing causes (any cause, do or die) other than UAP. It’s tricky, but credibility is precious and should be conferred with care in matters wherein erroneous causal attribution has potential adverse effects on individuals and civilization. Believing and knowing differ and their accretion over time become consensus about what is real; consensus reality is the infrastructure for future discovery. The ice must be thick enough to bear the weight of the walk. /-

    Richard,

    Talking of biological effects from UAP, I think you might want to watch this video at the 32:00 mark, where your colleague Bryce Zabel and Ross Coulthart talk about the serious burns and health damage Ross’ friend Damien Nott received from a UAP – he is now gravely ill – note also the damage to the DVDs –

    Richard,

    A slight aside: I remember back in November I read you were cautious about, and neither supporting or attacking, ex-CIA officer John Ramirez and his claims.

    If you’ve changed your position at all, could I respectfully ask you to consider updating us with your thoughts and response to his claims?

    If I remember correctly, in the presentation he did with Jay of Project Unity, Ramirez spoke highly of you for the work you did validating the 1950 Paul Trent/McMinnville UFO case, and so I would like to think his respect for you would hopefully encourage him to accept an interview by you.

    These very short edited videos on important quotes from Elizondo, Ramirez, and Nolan seem to tie in with each other, and are well worth a watch:

    I’ve been interested in UFO’s since 2011 when I firsr read Greer’s book and then went to his conference in Rio Rico, AZ. I’m eage now to find out what’s new and tired of same old, same old. While interesting, I feel up to my eyes in such as I’ve read a lot and attended a lot of IUFO converences and feel that I know quite a bit that’s been out there even though it’s difficult for me to remember specifics. I’m now 84 years old and am hopeful that we all have a revelation concerning the Aliens visiting earth while I’m still here.
