I have, pretty interesting, but nothing I have not heard before.

How about Shag Harbor , Canada in 1967.
Something crashed there, but no one knows what it was.
For something that was insignificant, it certainly drew a lot of attention from the military.

At around 11:20 PM(Atlantic Daylight Time) on October 4th, 1967 it was reported by multiple witnesses that something had crashed into Shag Harbor. At least eleven witnesses reported to have seen something illuminated and low flying head towards the bay. Some witnesses reported a “whistling” sound, similar to what one hears in those old war movies when the bombs whistle before as they fall. Many witnesses also have reported that the object made an audible air disturbance as it descended, as well as a loud bang and a flash of light when it entered the water, about 300 meters from shore. The initial call to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) came from Laurie Wickens, who with four of his friends had witnessed an object crashing into the harbor while driving alongside the bay on Highway 3. Wickens stated that his friends and he went to a better vantage point to see exactly what they just saw. He stated that he saw an object floating in the water about 300 meters out and that that it appeared to have a yellow light on top of it, whatever “it” was.

3-4 inch thick and “glittery” yellow foam stretching down the Sound for half a mile and 80 feet in width, also oily to the touch.
• Bubbles coming to the surface in areas
• Distinct Sulpher smell in crash area(apparently common in CE3+ cases?!)


In a last phone conversation, Harry refused to talk further and told Styles he would never get the full Shelburne story. When Styles suggested that maybe what he saw was wrongly identified as a UFO, Harry angrily responded, "I don't know what it was down there and I don't know where it came from. But it didn't come from this planet." (DO, pp. 67-71)

much more.....

That would be quite a move.
I suspect that would allow them to scratch the surface, pointing them towards certain private organizations before getting into the real meat.

By then i suspect luzsec or anonymous would get wiped out quicker than expected.

Same, but i don't think info of that sort is even stored within the CIA, it's got to be within more military research based facilities.

Hack lockheed or other high end defense contractors and see what kind of crazy things they're up to..

What kind of trial and error, or what kind of learning process do you have to go thru before you determine that this is the best joint to use, in spite of how difficult it is to construct ?

I think that there was a previous civilization on Earth before the 'modern era' that we are taught. It would be interesting to know what kind of lifestyle they lived and what happened to them.

UFO's have not landed on the White House lawn but they have flow over it, as well as the Pentagon. In 1952.

What evidence?

I'm sure if we had more facts much of the videos can be dismissed as military testing.

Don't buy it at all.

So an intelligent species will do random fly bys for the public?

Ya right...

There is something out there but it isn't here

Look at this recent video taken in London on 24 June.
I don't think it is a hoax because there are too many people looking up.
It would be hard to coordinate that many people.
They may not be UFO's but they are interesting.
This video currently has 800k hits on youtube.

You must have COMPLETELY dismissed letter B in my previous post (...as I didn't attribute EVERYTHING in those videos to otherworldly visitors). Typical!


.....and you are entitled to YOUR opinion about extra-terrestrial visitors.

I try to always take these videos with a grain of salt but this is something else. Very strange
