Now here’s an interesting video from Tokyo, Japan.
What makes this video of interest is that it was taken during daylight hours by someone. The story accompanying the video says that the person who took the video hasn’t come forward yet but that could change.
With any UFO video taken nowadays there are several factors that we need to take into account. First is if the video is authentic and not some special effect easily achieved with a number of state-of-the-art computer software. Secondly, are there any other videos and pictures taken by people from different vantage points? Will those UFO videos or pictures help us to glean more information?
My first advice to any UFO story is “Do not get excited”. This avoids jumping to conclusions and badly written copy. For example in this story the UFO is referred to as a “spaceship”. There’s no evidence it is a spaceship as it’s clearly seen in the air. At best it’s an unidentified flying object aka UFO. That’s all UFO means however mainstream media lacks so much hatting regarding UFOs that they get sloppy and generalize thus compromising the scientific method which should be applied to UFO reports.
We’ll have to wait for further analysis of this UFO video to see what shakes from this tree.
If this video passes muster then it’s just one of umpteen hundreds of thousands of UFO videos that can then be categorized for further investigation. If not, the investigative process to determine it’s veracity will help others who investigate UFOs.

LOOKING FOR UFO EVIDENCE
The study of UFOs is a vast one comprising not only the modern age of related items but also those of the distant past. One can study UFOs for years and get boggled down with a wide variety of opinions and theories but the important question remains that of where is all the UFO evidence?
Actually there is a mass amount of UFO evidence ranging from UFO photos, UFO videos, eyewitness accounts, trace cases which are physical effects on the surrounding environment where a UFO sighting has occurred, scientific and government documents and untold news stories.
First, the best form of evidence is that of something physical, however it is the most elusive. As of this date no concrete evidence supporting the extraterrestrial hypothesis exists. Many people have claimed they have in their possession an alien fingernail, skin samples, vomit, you name it but none have been proven conclusive. Debris from reported crash sites still come up inconclusive even after having been through a battery of tests. This form of evidence is the most prized yet just because none have been proven doesn’t mean none exists. It is very expensive to have tests done on such materials and the average person and cash strapped UFOlogist just can’t flow enough money for the detailed analysis such a claim would call for.
As for UFO videos and pictures they’re in abundance, however, with the advent of modern day computer wizardry it is very difficult for the average person to tell reality from deception. Nowadays up and coming special effects artists know that they can gain international fame by faking a UFO video. It has become quite common for there to be several posted on such sites as YouTube. Once said videos go viral it causes confusion within the professional UFO community. This is why the hardcore UFO researchers lean on photographic evidence prior to the days of Photoshop and other software. The classic photos and films are easier to analyze and have history to back them up.
As for other forms of UFO evidence there are official government documents that have emerged over the decades. Some directly from the US government and other governments and some through exhausting Freedom of Information Act legal recourse. Documents emerge with some tantalizing data but the overwhelming majority are “blacked out” or edited when in regard to the United States. Over the years such dramatic documents as the “MJ Twelve” which stands for “Majestic Twelve” have emerged and are still the subject of great debate. These documents emerged in the mid 1980s and comprise extensive and detailed data pertaining to a control group of twelve men from the military and civilian scientific communities that were charged with handling the UFO phenomenon. Since the original documents have yet to be found there can be no forensic investigation but the dates and actions and associations of the men listed have been examined and data gleaned that supports the theory that the group did exist.
Trace cases are the best UFO evidence we have to date because we can examine the ground, the soil, flora, and fauna to see if they’ve been effected somehow by the presence of a reported UFO. Witnesses who’ve reported a UFO on their front lawn can have a researcher examine it to see if any sign of the presence of a UFO is present. Changes in plant or animals, soil, are tested and evaluated to determine the changes and what could have caused such changes. Some people can be affected too with reports of burns, skin rashes, blindness, hearing loss and more. Often looked for are radiation burns or chemical affects. This evidence is highly valuable and should not be overlooked.
Eyewitness testimony gets an unfair look when discussing UFO evidence. There is nothing short of 100s of thousands if not millions of reports from highly accredited people ranging from heads of state to top scientists, military personnel and more. A person’s vantage point, education, and evaluation of an event and then through recall comes into question here. Certainly some people haven’t the best of memories and in a state of heightened alert might not process information sharply, however, human beings have been in situations of such alert since the dawn of time especially in combat situations and fared quite well. So the value of UFO evidence from a witness is on a case by case basis and best evaluated by a professional.
Overall, no one can say there isn’t enough UFO evidence. All they can say is that none of it is conclusive as of yet. There is every bit of evidence in abundance save for physically examined data that concludes something extraterrestrial is afoot.

Well this was a surprise as this story has witnesses and lots of photos and videos.
Russia as you may have heard or read is going through a wild election period. To add to all the confusion, fighting, and protesting, a UFO appears above the throngs at Bolotnaya Square.
After some professional analysis we’ll see what is made of these images. Because so many people were present and so many devices were used to capture images it should be easy to dismiss special effects and zero in on what type of craft this is. At first glance it looks to be some sort of hovering observational platform with rotor blades. Might well be the case but it’s still a UFO. Again I emphasize UFO reports need not immediately be assumed as having an extraterrestrial origin. We need to get out of that knee-jerk reaction to reports. So let’s wait to see what the experts dig up.
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.

Nowdays there are so many UFO books and UFO documentaries as well as UFO news stories that you may not know where to turn to in order to get that pertinent information that you need. In this case it’s time for me to put up a bibliography of sorts so that you’ll know what UFO books to buy.
We’re now 60 years plus into this phenomenon and there have been numerous books and some are exceptional and some just nonsense. There is so much UFO information in the world now that it would take you decades to study it all. Fortunately there are some UFO books you can buy that will get you the basic reference material so that you’ll know the history of Unidentified Flying Objects and be able to hold your own in any debate as well as have a foundation on which to stand as you do your own research.
The history of UFOs is important because it gives you a timeline of events when the subject hit the mainstream. It shows you how people, and government reacted to the events and how they tried to tackle the problem. The main problem wasn’t that people were seeing UFOs, the problem was who or what was behind them.
To this day the government says one thing, often in sharp contrast to what government originally assessed. Knowing the sequence of events regarding their mysterious change in opinions and conclusions shows a solid modus operandi and leads to a clear assessment as to what government’s agenda is in regard to the subject. Studying about how civilian observers and researchers approached the problem and gathered their own conclusions paints a pretty solid picture of their endeavors.
Often you’ll hear people, especially the skeptics, debunkers, and arrogant UFOLogists talk about the “scientific model” in researching UFOs. One claims the other doesn’t apply it but don’t realize it’s not that old a model. Only been around over a hundred years. The bottom line is in being objective and most importantly having at the ready the basic reference material you need to make better assessments of what you’ve encountered, what evidence has been gathered, and how to interpret it without going off into scientific-wild-ass-guesses (s.w.a.g.), nor delusional-unscientific-mythological-based-ad hominem-sorta-scientific, assumptions. (d.u.m.b.a.s.s.)
There are some UFOlogists I don’t get along with personality-wise. Basically they’re very arrogant and condescending, some are blatant racists and sexists, and some are just downright unpleasant people to be around. However, their research skills may have gleaned information that others were unable to gather or too afraid to. I can recommend their works, not inviting them to dinner or playing with your kids and small household pets.
On the other hand there are some UFOlogists that are the nicest people I’ve ever met but couldn’t investigate the reason they got up in the morning. Their research suffers and although I may like them I couldn’t in all fairness recommend their books.
So with that being said, give me a while to whip up some books that you can use that covers the phenomenon and the related fields of study. I’ll post it here directly.

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.

Well another multiple witness Close Encounter of the First Kind has occurred over Lafayette, Colorado.
Here you can see a couple of videos taken by different people that shows a triangular formation of lights
that suggest a triangular object flying slowly through the sky. This similar type of formation and object has
been reported for decades and as usual the authorities aren’t open about it to citizen’s requests which by law
they are mandated to do.
We’ll have to wait for the analysis of the videos to get an idea of what this object or objects are and until then
it’s best to follow my number 1 rule regarding any UFO story: Don’t get excited.
Wait until the professional analysis comes in and then we can catalog it with the other sightings. It’s a good thing
people at large now have pocket cameras and these residents of the area were sharp to whip out their cameras
and capture the event.
Good lookin’ out there Coloradans.
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.

Well another high profile UFO video has surfaced that has the web all abuzz. It shows a flying saucer hovering and traveling between some trees in Devon, England.
You can see this video of the UFO in Devon, England below.
As you can see it’s a good video and I would have to call this UFO video from Devon, England a fake for two reasons. One, I use and work with CGI and it has that signature all over it. Two, you see the object surrounded by trees and it shoots straight up into the air at an astounding speed and doesn’t disturb the trees surrounding it. That’s just too obvious. These UFO videos that pop up now and then on YouTube are really good but all you need do is pass them by experts in the special effects and computer animation field and they can spot them for what they are right off the bat. So again, my rule about any UFO story or sighting is that do NOT get excited. That’s your worse enemy. Instead analyze it carefully and if you can, pass it by some experts in special effects and there are lots of them on the web nowadays. All you need do is just search for their forums and ask them politely to examine them. They’ll not only tell you what it is but which software was used to achieve the effects.
