Well another UFO video has surfaced, this time allegedly from Siberia and reportedly shows a landed craft of some sort with a couple of occupants or aliens walking around. The video seen below is actually two videos taken on two separate occasions. You’ll need to look carefully to get any details but at least you’ve been forewarned.

As I’ve said before on this website, my first rule about any UFO story is “Never get excited about it.”. Why? Because it can cloud your judgement and you may fall prey to the scam artists out here. So take a look at this reported Siberian UFO video footage showing aliens and see how things turn out after professional analysis of the video comes out.

One of my favorite science fiction movies featuring the UFO issue is 1968’s “The Bamboo Saucer”.

It’s by no means a cinematic masterpiece but it contains issues regarding the theories and relationships regarding UFOs that surprised many who are knowledgeable about the subject.

To not give too much away, the story revolves around a pilot who is chastised for reporting a UFO sighting. He spends much of his time trying to prove his sighting and when something goes wrong, I won’t say what, he’s then recruited to a team of a congressman to venture into Mainland China to recover a flying saucer. Things go from bad to worse and the ending is a real thrill ride. It’s not a “happy camper” sort of story although there are moments of humor. You’ll see several favorite character actors of the day you wouldn’t expect to see in an espionage drama which the movie turns out to be.

What’s of major interest is what goes on with the flying saucer and I’ll leave it there.

This movie is in my top five of UFO movies of the classic era. There are alien invasion movies but there are those UFO/Flying Saucer movies that give a lot of thoughtful information and real data. Of careful note, pay attention to the theories regarding the propulsion system of the flying saucer. I saw “The Bamboo Saucer” late one night on CBS channel 2 way back in the early 1980s when I lived in the Hudson Valley area. I found this movie delightful, funny, very tense at times, well grounded in human and political issues such as the trust problems we had during the Cold War.

So enjoy “The Bamboo Saucer” and spot the actors who are the performers that the general public around the world are quite familiar with and still endure.

Okay so here we have another turnabout in the “Does life exist on Mars” debate. Today it was announced by NASA that photos of the red planet indicate that there may be flowing water on Mars thus bolstering the possibility of life on Mars.

That’s a longshot assumption but at least they’re still looking. However, we’ve sent numerous probes to Mars and only one was designed to search for life for some unknown reason. That was the Viking probe sent in the 1970s. Our Mars probes and Europe’s probes have found everything except life on Mars. The European Space Agency’s last probe, Beagle, crashed or disappeared and it was designed to search for life. All the other accompanying ESA probes worked except that one.

Needless to say, with NASA’s budget cut and thousands of their employees kicked to the curb with no hope of employment in the near future, if there are any secrets to be told about what NASA really knows, it will come out as those paychecks and unemployment checks run out.

This discovery by no means shows that there is life on Mars, but it does add to the evidence that points to either there is life there in some form or another. Considering the stonewalling the U.S. Government has engaged in regarding the extraterrestrial or space alien subject, the only way any disclosure will come about is if there’s money to be had in saying so.

Stay tuned is all I have to say.

I may be off target a bit, but I have to praise one of the most moving extraterrestrial science fiction movies ever made, 1952’s “Red Planet Mars”.

I’d seen it on television back in the late 1960s and now that I’m watching it in a new state of mind I’ve got to admit as a student of UFOlogy it’s not only socially powerful but it’s hysterically funny in it’s foresight and introspection.

It’s a movie that takes place at the beginning of the Cold War. When the United States and then Soviet Union were rapidly building up their arsenals to blow up the Earth to save it from one another’s ideologies. Typical human behavior to say the least.

The story wraps around the discovery of a young scientist and his wife who use a communications device to contact Martians. They detect the Martians via series of telescopic images showing signs of industry going on. They struggle to get a message back from the Martians but to no avail until the scientist’s son suggests the mathematical equation for Pi be used. That does the trick and soon the Martians and humans are chatting up a storm.

That may sound like a good thing but as any UFOlogist worth their salt who has read the declassified CIA sponsored Robertson Panel document, you can tell what happens next. That document exposed the drive that some in government planned to squash any UFO information, spy on UFO groups and discredit witnesses. The Martians tell about how they’ve solved the challenges of longevity and energy and peaceful relations. Needless to say as soon as the oil and insurance and banking cartels on Earth hear about it, riots break out, labor unions protest, and industries collapse sending the West into a tailspin.

It looks like the past ten years worth of global news except for the Osama Bin Laden thing.

Soon the US is forced to stop broadcasting the messages to the public as total chaos ensues. Adding more contrast to the mix is that the man who really invented the device to communicate with Mars is a drunk ex NAZI recluse living in the Andes mountains who is dealing with shady Soviet henchmen who are intercepting the US’ Martian broadcasts in order to use the information to undermine them. The crusty old drunk NAZI scientist is a movie unto himself as he’s such a character.

Things get worse for the Americans, bankers, and Soviets as the Martians answer the question as to why they’ve not blown themselves up using their technology by stating that belief in God and Christ is what kept them going and that we Earthlings had the opportunity 2,000 years ago but haven’t gotten the picture yet.

That leads to the Soviets dealing with a revolution that has the peasants in Russia upending the government.

Things go from bad to worse quickly as the evil drunk ex NAZI scientist’s secret lair is destroyed in an avalanche and he somehow makes it to America and confronts the good guy scientist with a plot twist that really spoils the milk.

I’ll leave the story there as there is an even bigger plot twist to come and I want you all to enjoy the flick.

The importance of this movie is that it addresses concepts that information about the US and foreign government’s reluctance to release UFO/ET data. It really explains it much.

The direction is fine, the performances are of surprisingly high quality with Peter Graves as the heroic scientist, Andrea King as his scientist wife who delivers a performance that may knock you out. She gives some dialogue that rips right through the mind and heart.

Herbert Berghof as the evil scientist is superb and would have made a great “Fearless Leader” from the classic “Bullwinkle and Rocky” animated cartoon by the great Jay Ward.

You just want to reach into the screen and punch Berghof’s character in the face a dozen times over he’s so rotten.

This is a must have movie for fans of sci-fi, UFOlogy, the Cold War, and religion.

Any villain who quotes from Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy” has got to be seen.

Some critics pan the movie because of it’s religious bend however writers John L. Balderston and John Hoare put together a tight script nonetheless.

It’s black and white but that gives it an extra sense of drama and goes hand in hand with other sci fi flicks of that era that didn’t fear to give God a voice.

So go out and get some popcorn and see a movie from the golden age of UFOlogy.


I’ve found out that you can watch this video online for free, yes Red Planet Mars, on Google video by clicking here, or you can watch it below.

Also, as a giggle of sorts, look for what I call the unintentional “Toy Story” reference regarding the PIXAR movie that features favorite American toys that come to life. It’s a scene where the scientist’s son is playing with toys on the living room floor. I almost fell out of my chair laughing.

Yawn! Another bogus supposed leaked Roswell zeta reticuli alien video.

May 8, 2011 on 9:12 am | In Exobiology, extraterrestrial, Flying Saucers, History, NEWS, Roswell, space alien, UFO CRASHES, UFO PICTURES, UFO VIDEOS, UFOlogy, YouTube | No Comments

Here you have another video that has been making the rounds on the internet purportedly showing a space alien from Zeta Reticuli star system. This black and white video shows the object being measured for height. Details of the subjects head and body are shown.

I for one am calling it bogus due to several factors. Some so glaring that I don’t have the time to spend on them. Just ask yourselves the relevant questions while looking at it as in why would a video make the sound of a film projector?

You can do some amazing things with computers nowadays regarding special effects imagery and as long as these videos keep being churned out every week it seems, you’ll have that cottage industry of bogus UFO and alien videos and pics streaming.

Nowadays we can’t go by pics and videos. We need physical evidence of unquestionable validity. We’ve theorized UFOlogy to within an inch of it’s life and speculated beyond what’s necessary. It’s more than past the time to do real lab work. You will never, ever get a disclosure from any government on Earth regarding this subject so don’t hold your breath. The only thing we have is good old fashioned scientific research done in a laboratory.

1953 Movie: Invaders From Mars

1953 Movie: Invaders From Mars

Last night I indulged myself by watching one of my favorite classic UFO movies called “Invaders From Mars”. It was produced in 1953, directed by William Cameron Menzies, written by Richard Blake, and starred Helena Carter, Arthur Franz, and Jimmy Hunt.

This movie, Invaders From Mars is a favorite amongst friends and family as it would be re-released in theaters while I was growing up and at the drive-ins. The television commercials were eerie as the trailer had all the elements that would make a kid want to make a bee line to the movies. It broke a lot of ground in the Martian invasion, UFO and flying saucer genres.

It featured then, what many today call the alien abduction phenomenon almost 15 years before the famous Barney and Betty Hill story that appeared in LOOK magazine in the early 1960s. The story had all the elements, people kidnapped, implants put into people’s brains, government conspiracies and the coolest, eeriest looking alien overlord type that still stands up today regarding make up and special effects. Invaders From Mars was way ahead of it’s time and on a modest filming budget still has the chills and surrealism the film achieved even in today’s high definition age.

Great plot, lots of heroic action and focuses on the story of a young boy who sees a flying saucer land in a field near his home. Soon, people begin disappearing and return with strange behavior and the boy, David, notices they’ve got a mark on the backs of their necks. David ends up at the police station after a neighborhood girl is abducted and sets fire to her home. David’s father and the girl’s father both work on a top secret project at a nearby base as do several of the people in the town. At the station David’s wild story of flying saucers and strange people puts him in a cell where a beautiful health care worker played by Helena Carter arrives and takes pity on the boy. David’s parents arrive, now under the power of the Martians to retrieve him but Dr. Pat Blake (Carter), refuses. Soon the police chief and some military brass are under the Martian’s control and it’s up to Dr. Carter, David, and Dr. Stuart Kelston, played by Arthur Franz, to race against time to alert the authorities and thwart the Martians. Yes, Invaders From Mars has it all except the mush.

If you haven’t seen Invaders From Mars you’re missing out. Yes there was a remake in the 1980s which was faithful to the original but the 1953 classic can’t be touched. I bring this up because I’ve seen several edited versions of this movie over the years and didn’t realize that it had been altered several times. There are several with different endings, one that was way ahead of the Twilight Zone and EC Comics ironic-twist-at-the-end formula, but in the version I saw last night on Netflix, there was an added scene I had not known existed and it blew me away.

In this version of Invaders From Mars, the filmmakers added footage to explain the area of UFOlogy and it was quite alarming. The sequence takes place amongst the three principal characters of David, Dr. Blake, and Dr. Kelston who runs the local observatory where Jimmy, an amateur astronomer likes to frequent. Kelston it turns out had been studying UFOs and goes into a lengthy, quite accurate and broad explanation about UFOs that looks like one of those 1950s educational films. I mean he really goes into depth to the point he actually makes a convincing argument for the alien visitation or extraterrestrial hypothesis. He covers the infamous “Lubbock Lights” story with photos, the case of Capt. Thomas F. Mantell of the Kentucky Air National Guard whose plane crashed while in pursuit of a UFO in January 1948. A highly publicized case at the time as theories of “death rays” were tossed about as an explanation to Mantell’s death. Not all the data in this particular scene is accurate science and has some speculation that by today’s standards of UFOlogy might not hold up but it’s amazing that the producers went to such lengths with this particular segment. In addition, there is something in this movie that most miss. At no time do the “invaders” state that they’re from outer space! It’s the military and the scientists who assume so. In a scene where the invaders are asked about their leader, the creepy bodiless octopus head in a bubble, the invaders state that their leader is the epitome of human evolution. Note, didn’t say “Martian”. Get the picture yet?

That added footage came after the main story had been filmed and one can see that the character David had grown a bit during the time period. This scene is just the extra punch that makes Invaders From Mars that must-have UFO movie alongside such classics as “Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story Of Flying Saucers”, “The Bamboo Saucer”, and “Earth vs The Flying Saucers” featuring the great Ray Harryhausen’s special effects.

So hunt around for the version of Invaders From Mars that I’m mentioning which according to the IMDB (Internet Movie Database) which you can read by clicking HERE. I won’t go into the endings of the three versions, American, European, and re-edited American versions as the endings are a surprise. So do yourself a treat and hunt for all three versions and enjoy a classic in UFO culture that stands the test of time.

Here you can see the original theatrical trailer for Invaders From Mars:

Here you can see a tribute to the movie and it’s eerie musical score. One of the scariest music scores as it’s deceptive. It starts off in some form of military march but soon evolves into a melody that suggests hidden mystery and a haunting otherworldly menace.

No Virginia, There Are No Extraterrestrials Visiting Earth

July 9, 2010 on 7:14 am | In ALIEN ABDUCTION, Close Encounter Of The First Kind, extraterrestrial, Flying Saucers, History, Paranormal, Roswell, Science, space alien, UFOs, Unidentified Flying Object | 13 Comments

I know that I will piss off lots of people but this is a prelude to a longer essay pointing out that of this date not one shred of proof has yet come to the table that extraterrestrials are visiting Earth, have visited Earth, or are on their way.

Sure there’s lots of “evidence” but without solid physical proof it’s still just ONE theory as to the origin of SOME UFOs.

What that means is that there are many theories as to the origins of some UFO reports. Theories like this include top secret government craft that we know has been the case several times. That some UFOs have been and are advanced private air and spacecraft that are unregistered. That some UFOs may be life forms we’ve yet to classify.

There are many theories and the most exciting being that some UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin. That theory alone has spawned more theories and speculation to the point of overwhelm. There are societies, religions, groups that claim to have the inside knowledge and far too many times has led to disaster and fraud. You’ve got to be on your toes for this.

I know there are some who’ll point to the Billy Meier case. A Swiss farmer who years ago presented several startling films, pictures, and books regarding his experiences. Sure it’s all entertaining and amazing but where is the physical proof? If these aliens meant so well it’s certain they’re aware that no one in government and science believes them, so why the stonewalling? It’s simple, they’re either incredibly stupid or they don’t exist. It doesn’t get any more complicated than that.

Oh, the Betty and Barney Hill case? One of the classics of this phenomenon. A couple from America claimed to have been observant of and abducted by extraterrestrials. An exciting case no doubt, but where is the physical proof?

Roswell. The mother of all UFO incidents. Lots of documents, speculation, books, tv, movies, but where is the physical proof?

Not one government, friend nor foe has come forward with any physical proof whatsoever in over 60 years of this phenomenon.

Why? Ask yourself “Why?”.

Now, does this mean that extraterrestrials and/or their mechanisms hasn’t or aren’t visiting Earth? No. What it means is that there is no physical proof to support it as conclusive.

There’s much more and even the trace cases, samples of flora, fauna, soil of areas where a UFO report has occurred are nothing more than evidence that something occurred or affected said at the location of a UFO report.

Let’s get oriented here as we may be missing out on a more prosaic but unsettling theory with far more physical evidence but shunned by even the most fervent UFO fan. That theory I’ll deal with in a longer essay as it would be so disturbing, if true, than any visit by extraterrestrials.

So again, at present, not one iota of proof has emerged to conclude that ETs are in any way, shape, or form a part of our development on Earth. That could change tomorrow or a year from now or a century from now, but as of right now there just isn’t anything. Sorry to hurt the feelings of those awaiting a spectacular landing and the emergence of the “Space Brothers” who’ll bring in a new age of benevolence but that’s so far from the farm there’s no way you can milk the cows.

So stand by for a further dissertation.

In the meantime, when someone says “extraterrestrials did this or that”, ask them to show you the PROOF or keep it in the realm of the anecdotal for now.

I thought I’d heard it all up until now.

That UFO abductees had all sorts of disorders and then
that abductees were reliving past life stuff and that there
was post prenatal configurations of the unconscious mind.

Now here’s a new one:


Yes, you read that right, mosquitoes. That UFO abductees
are actually experiencing latent memories of mosquito
bites. That when mosquitoes bite they create a psychological
cascade of unconscious fears that pile up and up and manifest
as delusions so real that we can’t tell the difference.

The similarities of bug eyed aliens with long probes extracting
fluids is so traumatizing that the mind fills in the blanks,
exaggerates and since some mosquito bites can cause
delirium like as in malaria, abductees are misinterpreting the
mosquito intrusions.

Now we know mosquitoes have been the number one cause
of death of humans since who knows when as they carry any
number of diseases and do transmit genetic material from
other animals but this explanation just went so over the top
as a grasping of straws that I had to post it.

Has anyone ever heard of this before?


City councillor for Winchester in Hampshire, England, Councillor Adrian Hicks, Takes Stand On UFOs

October 15, 2009 on 12:17 am | In Crop Circles, extraterrestrial, Paranormal, space alien, UFOs | No Comments

Now this is one the wildest UFO stories ever. It centers around a city councillor of Winchester in Hampshire, England named Adrian Hicks who professes to have seen an alien woman walking along a busy street in broad daylight. He even states in this video clip that others saw her and even took pictures as one might have suspected. It’s one of those stories you just toss out the window with the bath water because it sounds so absurd. For the sake of investigating a UFO, extraterrestrial report, we’ll follow this story here to see how it unfolds and hopefully the data gleaned will bring to light any validity or mischievous doings afoot.

This story was brought to my attention by noted British cerealogist Colin Andrews who is renowned for his study of the enigmatic crop circle phenomenon. I’m one to jab good Colin when he sends me these stories as I’m familiar with the cousins over there who are good for a lark now and then. Colin seems to believe the councillor so we’ll see what shakes from this tree.
