A lengthy and in depth look at the UFO situation in China by Adam Minter, an American writer living in Shanghai. Adam went to some great lengths to discover the UFO situation is not new to the Chinese
and that the government and officials and press do indeed look into these occurrences. Adam points to the website of the Shanghai UFO Research Center and gives a link to their official website but that link doesn’t work.
Needless to say the issue of UFOs is indeed in the news in mainland China and the reports have a regularity to them. The plus side is that with the ever populous areas we get multiple sightings and cell phone pictures. These events are occurring over big cities not small townships nor backwater locations. Minter’s look into the present and past phenomenon is quite revealing going back to paintings in the late 19th Century.
This is one of those amazing UFO stories that comes along in a rare moment.
According to the story you can read by clicking here, a UFO not only appeared above the city of Chongqing at the Beibei Binjiang Road, but the UFO stayed in that position for over half an hour. Here is a picture from the news report.
The object was “V” shaped and at 10pm on August 23 it conducted it’s spectacular display. Hundreds are reported to have witnessed this event and that hopefully means even more pictures and videos will be presented. These V shaped aircraft have been part of UFO lore for decades but until now only a very few good pics of these objects have been presented. Most of us believe these craft are indeed special military aircraft having been in testing and development for close to half a century. However, conclusive data is still outside our grasp. It will be of interest to follow this story as it develops.

This article is very interesting because in this Swiss newspaper, they not only look at the recent mega disclosures by the British Government regarding UFOs, but the Swiss are asking what their own government may know about the controversy.
The number of files released by the UK are such to the degree that it will take some while as experts and the public pour over them.
There’s no telling if the Swiss Government has an extensive UFO file that the Swiss people may petition to reveal. If so it would be a coup as it would add to the mountain of documentation already released by countries such as the UK, France, Mexico, Brazil, and Russia.
Why the U.S. Government doesn’t fall in with this honesty nor the Australian government says much doesn’t it?
As you can see from this story a Leeds man has not only had his third UFO sighting but he’s also been sharp enough to capture the object on his cell phone camera. Kevin Omerod, a bus driver, is featured in the article above.
His video is of an orange colored object. The key point here is that with the proliferation of cell phones and other camera devices it’s wise to postulate that more UFO pictures and videos will be presented to the public.
Let’s keep a weather eye out for such newsworthy events. These UFO pictures and videos will help investigators to better analyze these incidents to better resolve these incidents.
With all the growing features of these cell phones and portable devices they’re resembling the popular “tricorder” of “Star Trek” fame.
In all fairness I have to say not only was I close but also surprised.
This segment started out exactly as I had suspected. The first mistake was when the narrator Ju Ju Chang stated that the people to be interviewed all “believe in UFOs”.
That set my teeth on edge right there. Not only was I now convinced I was in store for more half-assed reporting and segment direction. To say someone believes in UFOs is absurd. You cannot believe in a UFO as UFO means only Unidentified Flying Object. It’s a scientific term meaning something flying that convention cannot explain. The more proper statement would have been that the persons to be interviewed “believe they’ve been in contact with extraterrestrials”. See, it’s best to say that some UFOs are theorized to be of extraterrestrial origin. There are many theories as to what some UFOs may be.
Next the segment moved onto a more stable approach by finally letting abductees relate their experiences. Chang asked some safe but important questions but they were so lightweight they left more questions than answers. It might have served ABC and the public more if the full subject of abduction were addressed and to what solid scientific methods have, are, and should be employed to validate the phenomena. Has anyone been fitted with a tracking device like we use for convicts who are under house arrest? If not, why not? How long has the phenomenon been going on? How widespread is it?
This segment only safely surfed the issue and the director/producer just had to use quick cuts to movies and unexplained photographs. In other words it was dressed up to within an inch of it’s life as a UFO entertainment piece instead of an informative look on one of the most widespread phenomena of our age. Of course it had to segue’ into what the psychiatric professionals had to evaluate and instead of discussing the findings of the most important psychiatrist to look into the issue, they glance over it to more speculation and nebulous conclusions.
The level of sloppiness wasn’t as high as I had expected although close. It was more of an approach that said the issue is important enough to warrant a glance but no teeth got sunk into this shark.
Dr. Susan Clancy and her evaluation of the phenomena is again so far off base regarding the types of abductions and the wide array of circumstances that to us who have studied, she sounds like a kindergarten colleague. She may mean well, but she’s got a heck of a lot of homework to do. She states that the people she’s examined or interviewed aren’t crazy and that’s what several experts have stated during the past 10 years or so. This is in contrast to what used to be done to people not only who’ve claimed to have been abducted but also just witnesses, as in the old days they would have been sent to a psychiatric hospital and I would have said, or worse, but I can’t think of anything worse than being sent to a psychiatric hospital other than being sent to one in Siberia.
Will this news segment open up dialogue? Hopefully it will but only if that dialogue moves in the direction of the solid application of real science and real detective work. We need that science and detective work to get to the bottom of this issue as well as weed out the charlatans.
The ride ain’t over yet folks.
Well ABC News is at it again. This time it’s a lengthy news story and news segment looking at the UFO/alien abduction phenomenon.
Most of us UFOlogists hold ABC with not a grain of salt but with blatant disdain because of their sloppy reporting regarding UFOs. I’ll be the first one to say that the UFO phenomenon needs to be examined by professionals of all fields and that raw data processed and presented. That would be the ideal scene but rarely executed. I’ll say honestly that yes, the UFO phenomenon is rife with fraud, shenanigans, spite, backstabbing, and the whole gambit of human foibles, but in all fairness the UFO phenomenon is also full of incredibly reliable, honest, intelligent, credible witnesses, experts, and data that is so overwhelming in it’s breath and scope it boggles the mind.
In the mainstream news’ case, the issue hasn’t been covered in ratio to the interest by the public. There are mountains of official government documents and living witnesses of high rank who are available for examination and questioning but the news media somehow slides by them to find persons who contribute in no way to the further investigation of this issue with the sincerity and clarity that is long overdue.
After reading this latest article it does well. It makes no evaluations of the participants and is edited well. You get to read from the people themselves what they believe to be true. All that’s well and good but too good to be true as the article typically degrades at the end with those pesky evaluations from the headshrinkers that encompass all UFO abductions being explained away as “sleep paralysis”. For some reason this Harvard trained psychologist Dr. Susan Clancy is bent on putting “sleep paralysis” as the explanation to every alien abduction story. What she doesn’t do, which any professional should do, is look at the alien abduction incidents THAT OCCURRED WHILST THE PERSONS WERE WIDE AWAKE. Not only were these abductees wide awake, in full recall of what occured but in many instances there were multiple people abducted and sometimes in broad daylight. These accounts are available from the research presented by experts going on for decades.
Pop culture would have you believe all abductees are rural types when in fact they span the entire spectrum of race, religion, culture, and occupations. As for the stellar lineup of whistleblowers we’ve got heads of state, generals, colonels, ministers, scientists, astronauts and cosmonauts, and more.
For some reason these incidents where the persons/victims/abductees were wide awake and multiple abductees at that, escaped the good doctor. One would think that gathering scientific data would encompass something important like RESEARCHING THE EVIDENCE but I guess Harvard doesn’t have to do that. They make so much money from the big drug pharmaceutical companies they don’t have to have real science done, they along with the rest of the psychiatric industry just make up new disorders, classify them as real and then get the pharmaceutical companies to dish out deadly mind altering drugs to ‘cure’ the disorder that isn’t real in the first place.
Methinks one day soon they’ll come up with a drug for the “alien abduction syndrome” and have abductees forced on these drugs.
What’s really tragic is that ABC News is giving Dr. Clancy a soapbox but doesn’t mention the most famous Harvard alum, the Pulitzer Prize Winning author and former head of Harvard’s Psychiatric Division, the late Dr. John E. Mack. Dr. Mack delved into the UFO alien abduction issue almost 20 years ago to prove it was the product of some form of psychological disorder or two. When he did the real, down to earth scientific investigation he ended up bucking the system by presenting his findings that the phenom was indeed real and required more research and especially in the way we evaluate reality. That got Dr. Mack in a mess of trouble with Harvard and for the first time in it’s history, Harvard tried to get rid of Dr. Mack, a tenured professor! We all poured in our support for Dr. Mack and Harvard was defeated and re-instated the good doctor. Ironic for me that in all his studies and travels Dr. Mack ended up moving into my neighborhood to further his studies in the Hudson Valley of New York, Dutchess County at that. I had the luck to briefly interview Dr. Mack at the 50th Anniversary of the Roswell Incident. Go figure.
I’m going to watch the broadcast as well to see if ABC, Ju Ju Chang the correspondent, and Dr. Clancy are going to present the solid evidence that is available especially the government released documents from the U.S., it’s allies, and enemies.
Seems like every country and their brother is forking over formerly classified UFO documents nowadays.
I wonder why?
It started promising but quickly degraded into the typical mainstream media mediocrity.
As soon as she brings in a headshrinker named Dr. Susan Clancy, yes that Dr. Susan Clancy, things go
downhill from there.
She doesn’t mention Dr. John E. Mack’s research nor the physical evidence, nor the mountains of
This is just a new wave of mainstream media looks into UFOs because their ratings are down and I have
an army of friends in the news business who tell me on a daily basis they have to do more coverage of
UFOs and the paranormal because they’re losing money pushing the typical hypnosis they call news.
Money is the issue here and they want to cover the issue without having to treat it seriously. I’m wondering
how many UFOlogists they’ve asked.
Now here’s something to chew on.
For the first time the most common amino acid, glycine, has been found on a comet according to NASA. The spacecraft Stardust captured the material on a flyby of the comet and sent the results to NASA for examination. According to the story the comet “Wild 2″ was followed and the dust of the comet captured by a receptacle aboard the fast moving spacecraft.
NASA had to take time since 2004 to confirm the amino acid was indeed of extraterrestrial origin and that bolsters the theory that the building blocks of life could have come from extraterrestrial objects such as comets and meteors.

In the “land down under” also known as Perth, Australia, a man by the name Alan Ferguson has created quite a buzz regarding his reported encounters with UFOs. Mr. Ferguson not only has made claims of witnessing such events but has shot video of it to prove his point.
In this day and age as I’ve mentioned before it’s only a matter of time that more UFO footage will be recorded as now there are billions of people with cell phone cameras and hand held cameras. In this case, the UFO wave hitting Australia has been in high gear as much as the wave that has been hitting Great Britain and Canada. The U.S. isn’t anywhere behind these other countries it’s just that our press and government are controlled to not address the matter.
This bodes ill for folks in the U.S. as whatever is going on and isn’t being addressed by our leadership is in direct violation of our birthrights afforded us by the Constitution of the United States.
It’s a no-win situation for the U.S. because if another major power discloses UFO information the U.S. will appear as collaborators with the counter intention and that means any wrong doing will further destroy the ever eroding confidence the American public has already in our government and leadership.
Strange and surprising things are going to be in store soon.

One of the UFO groups I keep tabs on sent me this email regarding a new Comedy Central show that is looking for people who’ve had alien abductions. They claim it’s for a serious look and of course I didn’t buy it for a minute. I asked for more data and this is the email that was sent to me. If you’re interested the producer’s contact information is the email listed in the letter below:
“My name is Christine and I’m a Producer for a new Comedy
Central show. We’re interested in doing a segment where one of
our characters sits in and meets with people who have had
experiences with alien abduction. I would like to preface this
by saying, that although this is a Comedy Central show, the
intent is not to abuse or slander anyone that is willing to be
involved. I will be honest, just like many people who don’t
believe in UFO’s will have strong opinions against the idea, so
will most of the people watching our show. So it’s just a
matter of any participants taking any doubt with a grain of
salt. The point is that this could be an opportunity for
people who strongly believe in UFOs or abduction to speak
intelligently on their experiences and beliefs. If you think
you or your group or anyone in your group may be interested,
please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you
