Many of us spent time this weekend gazing up at the night sky, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower – only to be disappointed by the clouds marring the view.

Mother(ship) of all sightings at Thames Barrier Andrew Burlington, of Cliffview Road, Lewisham, was out with his family in August 2016 when he spotted what he thinks may have been a fleet of UFOs flying over the Thames Barrier.

PUBLISHED: 08:15 08 January 2018 | UPDATED: 08:56 08 January 2018 Katy Sandalls The UFO trail in Rendlesham Forest. Picture: TOM POTTER Archant Information about Suffolk’s best known UFO encounter might be contained in a dossier held by the US government, according to a former MoD staff member. Colonel Charles I. Halt when he returned to Rendlesham Forest last year. Picture: TOM POTTER The incident at Rendlesham back in December 1980 has received a lot of attention from national and global media over the years and has often been called Britain’s Roswell. American officers stationed at the former RAF Woodbridge site reported seeing strange lights and an alien craft on two occasions in the forest area surrounding the base. Sceptics have since rubbished the claims of extraterrestrial activity by claiming that the beams were nothing more than lights on a police car or nearby Orfordness Lighthouse. Recently new information has come to light in the United States … [Read more...] about Could US government hold key information on Rendlesham UFO sightings?
An amateur photographer believes she may have captured a UFO hovering over the Kelpies on camera. Heather McEwan, from Falkirk, took some shots of the famous landmark on Sunday just after 10pm but didn’t notice anything at the time. It wasn’t until the following day she noticed a “strange” cross-shaped object in the sky to the right of the head of Baron, the 30-metre high ‘head up’ Kelpie. Heather said: “I hadn’t noticed anything unusual as I was using a Sony compact camera and don’t have the best eyesight, although it must be said that I was concentrating rather intently on keeping my hand steady and trying to get the picture central. “So, intent on taking a good picture and keeping my hand steady I clicked away. I came home and it wasn’t till the following day when I was showing my daughter the pictures that she spotted a strange object. “Curious I took the camera to Asda and had the picture blown up. I contacted … [Read more...] about UFO ‘sighting’ over the Kelpies
These stunning pictures appear to show an alien spacecraft hovering in the air over the desert and have been seized upon by the UFO community. They were taken by a man using the pseudonym "Keith Bradshaw", who says he went out to the desert near the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake in California after being told about the craft by a friend. He snapped the pictures in 2007 - but says he has been too nervous to show them until now. “This thing would wobble along close to the ground, very unstable," he told the Daily Star . “Then it would freeze in position, go up to a certain height and sit there for a few minutes perfectly still. It made no noise that I could hear." Keith said that he watched the craft for about ten minutes. He also claimed he saw the silver UFO while a number of military vehicles were parked nearby. There was even a military helicopter flying around at the time. “I don’t believe anyone could have been riding on the inside, but I got the idea … [Read more...] about Shocking UFO sighting above US Navy base in the California desert raises the possibility of alien visitors
THE public may never learn of the recent UFO sightings made by pilots in our skies thanks to a piece of EU legislation, it has emerged.Airline staff report a number of strange sightings to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) every year, it is understood.Since the MoD closed its UFO desk in 2009, the CAA has become the last British government organisation to retain an interest in UFOs and keep files on incidents involving civilian aircrews.But it has decided not to release a dossier detailing sightings or incidents between 2011 and 2017.Government files of this kind are normally available under the Freedom of Information Act, which allows any member of the public to request files from the government.But the CAA is now using a piece of European legislation from 2014 to block access to its record of “occurences”.It states: “Occurrence information can only be used for the purpose of maintaining or improving aviation safety, and the release of occurrence information to the … [Read more...] about Secret UFO sighting dossier hushed up using EU law so the public may NEVER learn what’s inside

IT’S one of the most notorious mass UFO sightings in the UK.But as alien enthusiasts commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Broad Haven Triangle, some sceptics have questioned whether the extra-terrestrial activity was all just one big hoax.The picturesque Welsh village was gripped with paranormal fever in 1977 after several people saw lit up objects hovering in the sky, a being in a metallic space suit and ghostly figures amongst the trees.Among the witnesses were 14 children from Broad Haven Primary School who claim an other-worldly craft landed in their playing field.David Davies was 10 at the time and heard reports of pupils seeing flying saucers throughout the day.He described seeing a silver "cigar-shaped" craft with a "dome covering the middle third"."My sighting only lasted a couple of seconds.
