'Out of the Blue': Do Aliens Exist?

It's an age-old question: Are we alone in the universe?

As the documentary Out of the Blue rightly points out, brilliant and reputable scientists believe that the conditions for intelligent life exist on thousands of planets. But then there's that other question that separates the scientists from the believers, the witnesses from the skeptics if aliens are out there, have they come to visit?

James Fox, the producer of Out of the Blue, says that aliens are out there. "They're flying around. They're here and they've been here."

He also believes that they have incredible technical ability, saying that they can "fly rings around our fastest jets. Yes. That's what I've been told. They can literally almost disappear in place."

Out of the Blue is an attempt to weed out the wackos and present credible witnesses who say they saw what looked like alien spacecraft. Witnesses like former President Carter, who said, "I saw one, but I don't know where. It just disappeared." And Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper, who says he saw "this typical saucer shape, double-cylindrical shape, metallic."

UFO Over Cheshunt

Paul Adams, 52, snapped these strange shots and is now appealing for anyone else who saw or can identify the potentially paranormal activity to come forward.

His friends have suggested extraterrestrials could be behind the drama although Paul, of Pengelly Close, is slightly more sceptical.

Paul had been watching films at about 3am on Wednesday last week when he decided to go outside for a cigarette.


UFO hunters scour Sweden for tips

Members of the organization UFO-Sweden are currently knocking on doors nationwide in a bid to follow up on reports of strange phenomena sighted in the skies.

According to chairman Clas Svahn, UFO-Sweden receives an average of one report per day of peculiar flashes, aircraft and extra-terrestrial beings.

Ninety percent of all reports concern easily explainable atmospheric light phenomena. At one point, many sightings could be traced to secret missile launches in the then Soviet Union.

"Today we can explain much more than we could thirty years ago. But there are some genuinely strange cases," said Svahn.


Strange UFO sightings over Turkey

Didim became the UFO sighting capital of Turkey when several people reported seeing strange lights ın the skies.

The strange yellowish melon-shaped ball was spotted by the Police Academy in Yeşilkent, while regulars at the Ark Cafe Bar, in Hunters Valley, spotted the same UFO-style lights at about 9.30pm last Saturday night.

Phil and Lorraine Quibell said they spotted the strange lights heading towards them but hundreds of meters off the ground as they walked on the Yeşilkent road, close to the police academy at about 9.30pm.

They described how the melon-shaped object was moving fast and in a straight line before swerving towards the police academy direction and towards the sea before disappearing over the horizon.

Mr Quibell, aged 52, formerly from Preston, said the object was a bright sun colour at the top but faded to a yellowish-moonlight colour below.

I saw aliens at Roswell, claims PR man at Roswell AFB

The public relations officer at the Roswell air base in 1947 has released claims that he saw a crashed spacecraft and the bodies of aliens at the site, despite a lifetime spent denying any such things.

In the affidavit, Lieutenant Walter Haut says the weather balloon was a cover story, and that the real crashed object had been stored by the military. He also claims to have handled the material from which the crashed craft had been constructed.

Haut died last year, but left instructions that his statement should be opened after his death.

In it, Haut described a meeting he attended on the morning of the crash:


Pilot continues to investigate UFOs over Channel Islands

The Aurigny captain, who claimed to have spotted two huge UFOs off Alderney two months ago, explained the sightings on the Richard & Judy Show and CNN on Monday night.

Capt. Bowyer was quizzed about the incident by the couple and discovered that the objects he saw were similar to a UFO photographed in New Mexico, USA, in 1957.

He told the Channel Four couple that he was now working with Dr David Clark, a writer for the Fortean Times and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University who appeared in the Guernsey Press last month, to try to discover more about the sightings.

'That photo from New Mexico was surprisingly similar and Dr Clark will be looking into the similarities,' he said.


UFO sighting over Norwich

It could be proof there really are little green men out there - or it could just be a close encounter with something far less alien.

A couple spotted five round orange objects moving silently across the skies over the city on Saturday night in one of the first UFO sightings this year.

Liam King, who was visiting Norwich from Colchester with his girlfriend, spotted the glowing orbs as he was walking along St Giles' Street, Upper St Giles' Street and Earlham Road at 10.35pm.

Mr King and his girlfriend were walking back to their hotel on Earlham Road when they saw the mystery objects.

He said: "When we first saw the lights we were walking west up St Giles Street where it was reasonably quiet - and quiet enough to hear that the objects were not emitting any sound.

Flashback Ministry of Defence declines to investigate mile-wide UFOs over Channel Islands; Photo of UFOs; ITV interviews pilot

A commercial airline pilot has reported seeing two unidentified flying objects in the sky near Guernsey.

The bright yellow flat disc shapes, estimated to be twice the size of a Boeing 737, were spotted on Monday, 12 to 15 miles north east of the island.

Captain Ray Bowyer was flying an Aurigny plane from Southampton to Alderney when he saw the objects through binoculars.

Mr Bowyer said he was "pretty shook-up" by the sighting.

"This is not something you see every day of the week - it was pretty scary," he said.

At first he thought it was the sun reflecting from greenhouses in Guernsey. He said the objects were bright like the sun, but did not hurt his eyes when he looked at them.

UFOs photographed over Guernsey

This photo was taken from the Professional Pilots Rumour Network. The comments in the discussion mention that the objects look like lenticular clouds, however, they are brighter than the surrounding clouds and lenticular clouds only form at high altitudes over land, usually mountains.
