Sasquatch Sighting in Sugar Creek, Missouri

By Margie Kay

My son-in-law, Rick, told me about a sighting he had in 2013 at a creek in Sugar Creek, Missouri. This site is very close to the Missouri River and a creek runs through it with woods surrounding the area. 

Rick and his two cousins went fishing at this site one late afternoon in the summer of 2013. The three had been on site for a couple of hours and were standing silently fishing in the creek when suddenly, a large, hairy bi-pedal creature walked out of the treeline and over to the creek. The men were approximately 100 feet from the creature,
and said that there was no mistaking what they were looking at -- a Sasquatch. 

None of them said a word and stood frozen in place. They did not want to alert the creature to their location for fear that he might harm them. 

The Sasquatch appeared to be a large male at least 8' in height with broad shoulders a conical head. It had long black hair all over except for the face. It was staring into the creek as if looking for something (fish, perhaps?). It stayed for about 10 minutes, then turned away and walked back into the woods, apparently unaware of the men's presence. 

The three men then grabbed their fishing gear and ran back to their vehicle without saying a word. They left and refuse to go back to that location again because they know what is nearby. 

Coincidentally, Valerie Hoover lives in Sugar Creek, and she and investigator Jean Walker with MUFON have heard loud calls that they can only identify as Bigfoot. They listened to sounds of Bigfoot calls on the internet and determined that they are very similar to what they heard. Valerie's house is only about a mile from the Conservation Area.

Is there a Mothman in Kansas City Again?

I have a question mark after the title of this article title because I honestly don't know what the heck I saw last night. I was meditating while sitting in my hot tub last night at 10:30 pm August 9, 2021 some very strange things occurred. There are two streetlights which sit diagonally from the corners of my house about 75 feet away. I had my eyes closed, but heard a noise which made me open my eyes. I sensed that something was nearby. Then I saw a shadow on my deck, and a very clear outline of a wing, which then closed. I immediately looked in the direction of the streetlight but there was nothing there. The shadow was about 3.5' in height so whatever made it was big, but I did not get a look at it. 

Next, I heard a car move into my gravel driveway, except there was no engine sound. I


assumed it must have been an electric vehicle. Then a car door shut. At that point, I jumped up and went to the end of my deck to see who the heck was in my driveway at that time of night - only to see nothing there. No car, no person, nothing. Since we have the only gravel driveway nearby, it had to be my driveway and no one else's.  I wondered several things then - was this a car in another dimension? And were was the person who got out of the vehicle? 

I then went inside the house and texted Jean Walker (another investigator) about this and she and I were discussing it when something flew by the second streetlight, blocking it out completely. Whatever it was had to be big. I opened the front door and looked around and saw nothing, but again, sensed that something was there. And it "felt" like a Mothman. Whatever that means. Its difficult to describe but that is what I got. 

Then Jean told me that she saw a huge winged shadow on the road in front of her as she was driving from North Kansas City to Raytown earlier the same day. At first she thought it was a plane, but she could seen no plane and nothing else. She wonders if it was a Mothman.

Its very odd but since Jean and I have been working together on UFO and cryptid cases, the same things seem to happen to both of us at or around the same time - even when we are not together. 

I've taken over 100 case reports of winged creatures to date, and placed them on Google Maps under Winged Cryptid Sightings, and many are in my book Winged Aliens. Most of the Mothman reports are from the Greater Kansas City area. 

So is there a Mothman once again flying around the Kansas City area?  Only time will tell. Keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready!

Announcing the Galileo Project for the Systematic Scientific Search for Evidence of Extraterrestrial Technological Artifacts

 ‘Daring to Look Through New Telescopes’


CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts – July 26, 2021 –

Galileo showing the Doge of Venice
how to use the telescope
(fresco by Giuseppe Bertini)
The multi-institutional, international Galileo Project founders, research team and advisory boards, in conjunction with the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian, today announce the Galileo Project (website: projects.iq.harvard.edu/galileo). It is a transparent scientific project to advance a systematic experimental search for cross-validated evidence of potential astro-archeological artifacts or active technical equipment made by putative existing or extinct extraterrestrial technological civilizations (ETCs).


The goal of the Galileo Project is to bring the search for extraterrestrial technological signatures from accidental or anecdotal observations and legends to the mainstream of transparent, validated and systematic scientific research.


Professor Avi Loeb, head of the Galileo Project, explainsi: “In 2017, the world for the first time observed an interstellar object, called ‘Oumuamua, that was briefly visiting our solar system. Based on astronomical observations, ‘Oumuamua turned out to have highly anomalous properties that defy well-understood natural explanations. We can only speculate whether ‘Oumuamua may be explained by never seen before natural explanations, or by stretching our imagination to ‘Oumuamua perhaps being an extraterrestrial technological object, similar to a very thin light-sail or communications dish, which would fit the astronomical data rather well.”


- confidential -
Professor Loeb continuesii: “After the recent release of the ODNI report on
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), the scientific community needs the determination to
systematically, scientifically and transparently look for potential evidence of
extraterrestrial technological equipment. The impact of any discovery of extraterrestrial
technology on science, our technology, and on our entire world view, would be enormous.”
He concludesiii: “Given the recently discovered abundance of habitable-zone
exoplanets, with potential for extraterrestrial life, the Galileo Project is dedicated to the
proposition that humans can no longer ignore the possible existence of ETCs. Science
should not reject potential extraterrestrial explanations because of social stigma or cultural
preferences that are not conducive to the scientific method of unbiased, empirical inquiry.
We now must ‘dare to look through new telescopes’, both literally and figuratively.”
Irrespective of the possibility that the Galileo Project may discover additional, or
even extraordinary evidence for ETCs, at a minimum the Galileo Project will gather rich
data sets that may foster the discovery of — or better scientific explanations for — novel
interstellar objects with anomalous properties, and for potential new natural phenomena,
or terrestrial technology explanations for many presently inexplicable UAP1.


Background on UAP and ‘Oumuamua
The ODNI (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) report, delivered to
Congress on June 25, 2021, mentions many Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), the
nature of which is unknown. The report states: “a majority of UAP were registered across
multiple sensors, to include radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers and visual
observation.”
Four years earlier, on October 19th, 2017, astronomers discovered the first interstellar
object from outside the solar system, called 'Oumuamua. The object did not resemble any
comet or asteroid observed before. It was inferred to have a flat shape and moved away
from the Sun as if it were thin enough to be pushed by sunlight. Moreover, this pancakeshaped
object tumbled every 8 hours and originated from the rare state of Local Standard
of Rest, which averages over the motions of all the stars in the vicinity of the Sun.
The existing data on UAP and ‘Oumuamua are sufficiently anomalous to motivate the
collection of additional data on UAP or ‘Oumuamua-like objects and to test whether such
objects may be astro-archeological artifacts or active technological equipment produced by
one or more putative, existing or extinct extraterrestrial civilizations (ETCs).

Galileo Project Scope and Limitations
The Galileo Project research group will aim to identify the nature of UAP and ‘Oumuamua-like interstellar objects using the standard scientific method based on a transparent analysis of open scientific data to be collected using optimized instruments.
This ground-based project is complementary to traditional SETI, in that it searches for physical objects, and not electromagnetic signals associated with extraterrestrial technological civilizations.


For the Galileo Project only ‘known physics’ explanations are in scope. ‘Alternative physics’ hypotheses, while interesting, are explicitly not part of the Galileo Project. Moreover, the Galileo Project will not engage in retroactive attempts to analyze existing images or radar data, or speculate on prior UAP, observations or anecdotal reports, as these are not conducive to cross-validated, evidence-based scientific explanations.


The Galileo Project Follows Three Major Avenues of Research:
(i) Obtain High-resolution, Multi-detector UAP Images, Discover their Nature:
A picture is worth a thousand words. For example, a megapixel image of the exterior of a human-scale UAP object at a distance of a mile will allow to distinguish: “Made in Country X” from the potential alternative “Made by ETC Y” on an exoplanet in our galaxy. This goal will be accomplished by searching for UAP with a network of mid-sized, high-resolution telescopes and detector arrays with suitable cameras and computer systems, distributed in select locations. The data will be open to the public and the scientific analysis will be transparent.
We anticipate extensive Artificial Intelligence/Deep Learning (AI/DL) and algorithmic approaches to differentiate atmospheric phenomena from birds, balloons, commercial or consumer drones, and from potential technological objects of terrestrial or other origin surveying our planet, such as satellites. For the purpose of high contrast imaging, each telescope will be part of a detector array of orthogonal and complementary capabilities from radar, Doppler radar and high-resolution synthetic aperture radar to high-resolution, large camera visible range and infrared band telescopes. If an ETC is discovered to be surveying Earth using UAP, then we have to assume that the ETC has mastered passive radar, optical and infrared technologies. In such a case, our systematic study of detected UAP will be enhanced by means of high-performance, integrated multi-wavelength detector arrays.


- confidential -
(ii) Search for and In-Depth Research on ‘Oumuamua-like Interstellar Objects:
The Galileo Project research group also will utilize existing and future astronomical surveys, such as the future Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST)2 at the Vera C. Rubin Observatory (VRO), to discover and monitor the properties of interstellar visitors to the Solar system.
We will conceptualize and design, potentially in collaboration with interested space agencies or space ventures, a launch-ready space mission to image unusual interstellar objects such as ‘Oumuamua by intercepting their trajectories on their approach to the Sun or by using ground-based survey telescopes to discover interstellar meteors.
(iii) Search for Potential ETC Satellites:
Discovering potential 1 meter-scale or smaller ETC satellites that may be exploring Earth, e.g., in polar orbits a few hundred km above Earth, may become feasible with VRO in 2023 and later. If radar, optical and infrared detection avoidance technologies have been mastered by an ETC, then very sophisticated large telescopes on Earth will be required. We will design advanced algorithmic and AI/DL object recognition and fast filtering methods that the Galileo Project intends to deploy, initially on non-orbiting telescopes.
Historical Perspective and Naming
The reference to Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei3 (1564-1642) was chosen in view of the possibility that the Galileo Project may make novel discoveries regarding ETCs. The importance of the potential discoveries of rigorously validated scientific evidence of extraterrestrial technology may be similar in impact on astronomy and our world view as Galileo's pioneering use of telescopes for astronomical observations were in history.
Galileo’s improved design of an optical telescope allowed him to discover the four largest moons of Jupiter in 1609-1610. These Galilean moons were the first satellites found to orbit a planet other than Earth. Galileo also discovered Saturn's rings in 1610.
Both discoveries provided key evidence in favor of the model of heliocentrism4, developed by Nicolaus Copernicus and published in 1543, which gradually displaced the

previous, dogmatic and incorrect geocentric model
5 of the universe. According to popular legend, after recanting under persecution his theory that the Earth moved around the Sun, Galileo allegedly muttered the rebellious phrase, "And yet it moves." Moreover, Galileo complained that some of the philosophers who opposed his discoveries had even refused to look through his telescope, e.g., to see the mountains on the Moon, or the four largest moons of Jupiter. Let us not repeat their mistake.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby Releases Statement

Following is the press release in its entirety:

Statement by Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Assessment

June 25, 2021

Statement by Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Assessment:

Today the Director of National Intelligence delivered to Congress a preliminary assessment on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) and the progress that the Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense UAP Task Force has made in understanding this threat.

Analyzing UAP is a collaborative effort involving many departments and agencies, and the Department thanks the Office of the Director of National Intelligence for leading a collaborative effort to produce this assessment, as well as the other contributing departments and agencies.

Incursions into our training ranges and designated airspace pose safety of flight and operations security concerns, and may pose national security challenges.  DOD takes reports of incursions – by any aerial object, identified or unidentified – very seriously, and investigates each one.

The report submitted today highlights the challenges associated with assessing UAP occurring on or near DOD training ranges and installations.  The report also identified the need to make improvements in processes, policies, technologies, and training to improve our ability to understand UAP.

To that end, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks today directed the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security to develop a plan to formalize the mission currently performed by the UAPTF. 

This plan will be developed in coordination with various DOD components, including the military departments and the combatant commands, and with ODNI and other interagency partners.  The plan will establish procedures for synchronizing collection, reporting and analysis of UAP; provide recommendations for securing military test and training ranges; and identify requirements for the establishment and operation of a new follow-on DOD activity to lead the effort, including its alignment, resources, staffing, authorities, and a timeline for implementation.

OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Preliminary Assessment:
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena
25 June 2021
UNCLASSIFIED

SCOPE AND ASSUMPTIONS
Scope
This preliminary report is provided by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in response to the provision in Senate Report 116-233, accompanying the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) for Fiscal Year 2021, that the DNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF), is to submit an intelligence assessment of the threat posed by unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) and the progress the Department of Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) has made in understanding this threat.
This report provides an overview for policymakers of the challenges associated with characterizing the potential threat posed by UAP while also providing a means to develop relevant processes, policies, technologies, and training for the U.S. military and other U.S. Government (USG) personnel if and when they encounter UAP, so as to enhance the Intelligence Community’s (IC) ability to understand the threat. The Director, UAPTF, is the accountable official for ensuring the timely collection and consolidation of data on UAP. The dataset described in this report is currently limited primarily to U.S. Government reporting of incidents occurring from November 2004 to March 2021. Data continues to be collected and analyzed.
ODNI prepared this report for the Congressional Intelligence and Armed Services Committees. UAPTF and the ODNI National Intelligence Manager for Aviation drafted this report, with input from USD(I&S), DIA, FBI, NRO, NGA, NSA, Air Force, Army, Navy, Navy/ONI, DARPA, FAA, NOAA, NGA, ODNI/NIM-Emerging and Disruptive Technology, ODNI/National Counterintelligence and Security Center, and ODNI/National Intelligence Council.
Assumptions
Various forms of sensors that register UAP generally operate correctly and capture enough real data to allow initial assessments, but some UAP may be attributable to sensor anomalies.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.
• As a result, the UAPTF concentrated its review on reports that occurred between 2004 and 2021, the majority of which are a result of this new tailored process to better capture UAP events through formalized reporting.
• Most of the UAP reported probably do represent physical objects given that a majority of UAP were registered across multiple sensors, to include radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual observation.
In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight characteristics. These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.
There are probably multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations based on the range of appearances and behaviors described in the available reporting. Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or U.S. industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall “other” bin.
UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security. Safety concerns primarily center on aviators contending with an increasingly cluttered air domain. UAP would also represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed either a breakthrough or disruptive technology.
Consistent consolidation of reports from across the federal government, standardized reporting, increased collection and analysis, and a streamlined process for screening all such reports against a broad range of relevant USG data will allow for a more sophisticated analysis of UAP that is likely to deepen our understanding. Some of these steps are resource-intensive and would require additional investment.

AVAILABLE REPORTING LARGELY INCONCLUSIVE
Limited Data Leaves Most UAP Unexplained…
Limited data and inconsistency in reporting are key challenges to evaluating UAP. No standardized reporting mechanism existed until the Navy established one in March 2019. The Air Force subsequently adopted that mechanism in November 2020, but it remains limited to USG reporting. The UAPTF regularly heard anecdotally during its research about other observations that occurred but which were never captured in formal or informal reporting by those observers.
After carefully considering this information, the UAPTF focused on reports that involved UAP largely witnessed firsthand by military aviators and that were collected from systems we considered to be reliable. These reports describe incidents that occurred between 2004 and 2021, with the majority coming in the last two years as the new reporting mechanism became better known to the military aviation community. We were able to identify one reported UAP with high confidence. In that case, we identified the object as a large, deflating balloon. The others remain unexplained.
• 144 reports originated from USG sources. Of these, 80 reports involved observation with multiple sensors.
o Most reports described UAP as objects that interrupted pre-planned training or other military activity.
UAP Collection Challenges
Sociocultural stigmas and sensor limitations remain obstacles to collecting data on UAP. Although some technical challenges—such as how to appropriately filter out radar clutter to ensure safety of flight for military and civilian aircraft—are longstanding in the aviation community, while others are unique to the UAP problem set.
• Narratives from aviators in the operational community and analysts from the military and IC describe disparagement associated with observing UAP, reporting it, or attempting to discuss it with colleagues. Although the effects of these stigmas have lessened as senior members of the scientific, policy, military, and intelligence communities engage on the topic seriously in public, reputational risk may keep many observers silent, complicating scientific pursuit of the topic.
• The sensors mounted on U.S. military platforms are typically designed to fulfill specific missions. As a result, those sensors are not generally suited for identifying UAP.
• Sensor vantage points and the numbers of sensors concurrently observing an object play substantial roles in distinguishing UAP from known objects and determining whether a UAP demonstrates breakthrough aerospace capabilities. Optical sensors have the benefit of providing some insight into relative size, shape, and structure. Radiofrequency sensors provide more accurate velocity and range information.
UNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIED
But Some Potential Patterns Do Emerge
Although there was wide variability in the reports and the dataset is currently too limited to allow for detailed trend or pattern analysis, there was some clustering of UAP observations regarding shape, size, and, particularly, propulsion. UAP sightings also tended to cluster around U.S. training and testing grounds, but we assess that this may result from a collection bias as a result of focused attention, greater numbers of latest-generation sensors operating in those areas, unit expectations, and guidance to report anomalies.
And a Handful of UAP Appear to Demonstrate Advanced Technology
In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics.
Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.
The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.
UAP PROBABLY LACK A SINGLE EXPLANATION
The UAP documented in this limited dataset demonstrate an array of aerial behaviors, reinforcing the possibility there are multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations. Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall “other” bin. With the exception of the one instance where we determined with high confidence that the reported UAP was airborne clutter, specifically a deflating balloon, we currently lack sufficient information in our dataset to attribute incidents to specific explanations.
Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft.
Natural Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.
USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.
Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.
UNCLASSIFIED
6
UNCLASSIFIED
Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.
UAP THREATEN FLIGHT SAFETY AND, POSSIBLY, NATIONAL SECURITY
UAP pose a hazard to safety of flight and could pose a broader danger if some instances represent sophisticated collection against U.S. military activities by a foreign government or demonstrate a breakthrough aerospace technology by a potential adversary.
Ongoing Airspace Concerns
When aviators encounter safety hazards, they are required to report these concerns. Depending on the location, volume, and behavior of hazards during incursions on ranges, pilots may cease their tests and/or training and land their aircraft, which has a deterrent effect on reporting.
• The UAPTF has 11 reports of documented instances in which pilots reported near misses with a UAP.
Potential National Security Challenges
We currently lack data to indicate any UAP are part of a foreign collection program or indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary. We continue to monitor for evidence of such programs given the counter intelligence challenge they would pose, particularly as some UAP have been detected near military facilities or by aircraft carrying the USG’s most advanced sensor systems.
EXPLAINING UAP WILL REQUIRE ANALYTIC, COLLECTION AND RESOURCE INVESTMENT
Standardize the Reporting, Consolidate the Data, and Deepen the Analysis
In line with the provisions of Senate Report 116-233, accompanying the IAA for FY 2021, the UAPTF’s long-term goal is to widen the scope of its work to include additional UAP events documented by a broader swath of USG personnel and technical systems in its analysis. As the dataset increases, the UAPTF’s ability to employ data analytics to detect trends will also improve. The initial focus will be to employ artificial intelligence/machine learning algorithms to cluster and recognize similarities and patterns in features of the data points. As the database accumulates information from known aerial objects such as weather balloons, high-altitude or super-pressure balloons, and wildlife, machine learning can add efficiency by pre-assessing UAP reports to see if those records match similar events already in the database.
• The UAPTF has begun to develop interagency analytical and processing workflows to ensure both collection and analysis will be well informed and coordinated.
UNCLASSIFIED
7
UNCLASSIFIED
The majority of UAP data is from U.S. Navy reporting, but efforts are underway to standardize incident reporting across U.S. military services and other government agencies to ensure all relevant data is captured with respect to particular incidents and any U.S. activities that might be relevant. The UAPTF is currently working to acquire additional reporting, including from the U.S. Air Force (USAF), and has begun receiving data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
• Although USAF data collection has been limited historically the USAF began a six-month pilot program in November 2020 to collect in the most likely areas to encounter UAP and is evaluating how to normalize future collection, reporting, and analysis across the entire Air Force.
• The FAA captures data related to UAP during the normal course of managing air traffic operations. The FAA generally ingests this data when pilots and other airspace users report unusual or unexpected events to the FAA’s Air Traffic Organization.
• In addition, the FAA continuously monitors its systems for anomalies, generating additional information that may be of use to the UAPTF. The FAA is able to isolate data of interest to the UAPTF and make it available. The FAA has a robust and effective outreach program that can help the UAPTF reach members of the aviation community to highlight the importance of reporting UAP.
Expand Collection
The UAPTF is looking for novel ways to increase collection of UAP cluster areas when U.S. forces are not present as a way to baseline “standard” UAP activity and mitigate the collection bias in the dataset. One proposal is to use advanced algorithms to search historical data captured and stored by radars. The UAPTF also plans to update its current interagency UAP collection strategy in order bring to bear relevant collection platforms and methods from the DoD and the IC.
Increase Investment in Research and Development
The UAPTF has indicated that additional funding for research and development could further the future study of the topics laid out in this report. Such investments should be guided by a UAP Collection Strategy, UAP R&D Technical Roadmap, and a UAP Program Plan.

What does this mean to serious UFO/UAP investigators and the public? This release does show that the Pentagon admits that there are objects in our skies that they cannot explain. It just goes one step further than what has already been released after leaks from the U.S. Navy pilots showing unidentified flying craft over the Ocean. It is not, however, an admission that these craft are alien in nature.

Culture and Disclosure

 By A. T. Roberts

In the past several years, a steady stream of UFO-related information has inundated our cultural landscape. Some wavetop events are as follows:

-          2017 - Former Blink-182 front man Tom DeLonge establishes To the Stars.

-          2017 - The New York Times and other legacy media outlets break a story on the existence of AATIP, a government-funded program to investigate UAPs (their term).

-          2018 - The documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers is released, breathing life into the story of Lazar and substantiating some of his previously dubious claims.

-          2019 - Video footage is released, via To the Stars, of U.S. Navy fighter pilots encountering UAPs off the coast of California and the Eastern Seaboard in 2004 and 2014-15, respectively.

-          2020 - The documentary The Phenomenon is released, featuring government officials openly speaking about the existence of UAPs.

-          2021 - Congress releases report on UAPs.


This relatively short timeline dwarfs any release on the subject in the decades preceding it. Though it seems as if we are on the precipice of a new era of data sharing and disclosure on behalf of those in power, a comparison to well-known events throughout the history of UFOlogy as well as a more careful examination of current events unfolding may suggest otherwise.  

Government

Several of the highlights listed above that pertain to the federal government have all the trappings of administrative obfuscation behind them. For example, they’re not UFOs anymore, they’re UAPs. Though it's been suggested that the new acronym was created to build distance from the stigma surrounding UFOs, what it really feels like is the government making up new words to make it seem like they’re making progress on the issue.

The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which, in recent years, has made waves in the news cycle, should also be examined with caution. For anyone even remotely familiar with bloated bureaucracy and inflated government spending, $22 million—spaced over five years—seems like a pretty small budget to figure out what’s really occurring in the skies above us; if that was even the government’s plan in the first place. To put it in perspective, congress spent the same amount of money throwing parties to celebrate victories in Iraq and Afghanistan. (1). The whole program rings eerily similar to the now-infamous Project Bluebook, the Air Forces token response to Cold War era UFO sightings; initially run, not by a general (O7-10), but a lowly captain (O3). It’s a feign to show, “Here, we’re taking this seriously, see?” Also, it's not AATIP anymore, it's the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF); another terminology change.

The upcoming congressional report release is another example of hype over what likely amounts to no new information. The government is admitting that yes, something is happening and no, they don’t know exactly what it iswhich, in and of itself, can still be viewed as significant since they’re not saying it's swamp gasbut nothing will change, no substantially new information will be revealed.

The main outlier is the creation of the Space Force. Politics aside, it is nothing revelatory to state that President Trump faced a leviathan and unprecedented opposition in almost every venture he undertook while in office. Highly organized resistance came from the media, private industry/NGOs, various levels of state and federal government, and even his own party. Whether it was an incomplete border wall, lengthy hearing up to the nomination of a federal judge, or a two-year investigation into foreign collusion; any and all plans were thwarted, stalled, or obstructed. Outside of rather quickly produced entertainment-based mockery (2), Trump managed to stand up an entirely new military branch with little-to-no resistance.

The formation of a military branch whose domain co-exists with the recent debuting of the unknown phenomena mentioned above harkens back to the creation of the United States Air Force in the same time frame of foo fighters, Kenneth Arnold’s now-famous sighting, and Roswell.

What makes this massive administrative change significant in the world of UFOlogy is the fact that it was done without the explicit mention of its decision having anything to do with UAPs. If the government said, “yea, we're standing up the Space Force to defend the country from aliens,” Ufologists and enthusiasts alike would obviously freak out, since that would implicitly pay credence to the government’s awareness of the non-terrestrial origin of them; but they didn’t say this. Instead, they told us about AATIP (via the media), career bureaucrats talked on big-budget documentaries and the Joe Rogan podcast, and they released a few videos captured by fighter pilots (via To The Stars).

Media

The 21st Century marks a low point for trust in media institutions. A 2020 survey shows that one third of Americans have zero trust in mass media; a record high, having gone up nine points from merely a year earlier (3). If you also distrust polling data, simply scroll through the comments section of an online advertisement for a legacy media outlet and read the cynicism for yourself. Coupling this notion with the fact that we live in an era of an unprecedented media-government-corporate alliance not seen since WWII, it is almost bizarre how much trust UFOlogists put in the release of the New York Times piece on AATIP. Yes, the program existed; but the public being made aware of its existence should not be thought of as groundbreaking, but rather potentially calculated.

To The Stars, at its core a media company, also has its parallels in UFOlogy folklore. Jamie Shandera comes to mind; a television producer who had the now-infamous “Majestic-12” documents mysteriously appear at his doorstep. The idea that someone who makes a living producing stories was suddenly given allegedly hard-proof evidence as to the existence of a secret government group responsible for the safeguarding of UFO information was taken seriously is almost silly in retrospect. Furthermore, the idea was advanced by Bill Moore, another individual with a predilection to all-things UFO-related. Moore later went on to claim that he was used by the government to spread disinformation.

 Culture

            Maybe one of the most cringe-worthy aspects of everything mentioned above is its dovetailing with the mainstreaming of what was long-considered “nerd culture.” If you’ve seen a movie, watched a television show, or gone on the internet in the past twenty years I’m sure you’ve noticed that what was once nerdy or geeky has officially entered pop-culture, in a truly hyper-capitalist fashion. Aside from the “in before you” whines of real or wannabe nerds claiming that their culture (term used very loosely) is being appropriated, what all this amounts to is a token interest in the fields associated with actually discovering what’s going on in the skies above us. Examples: people with zero interest in aerospace walking around in NASA shirts, the theocratizing of science, the release of more big-budget movies and documentaries on the subject, and so on. Though one might argue that this is all beneficial since it gets more people generally interested in subjects either directly or loosely pertaining to UFOlogy; what it really amounts to, as alluded to above, is a repackaging of old lore in an effort to, on the media front, profit; and on the government front, potentially increase compartmentalization and consolidation of information. This, particularly in the example of media, dilutes the field rather than bolstering it. Are we really any closer to truth as a result of increased UFO/sci-fi popularity, or just the next “storm Area-51” Facebook circus event?

Woman appears twice on a Kansas City Highway 7 miles apart

Tony Degn was driving an Uber client from Kansas City International airport to her home on the afternoon of Friday, May 7 when the two of them saw a woman crossing I-29 highway, then again seven miles later. 

As Tony passed the Barry road exit on I-29 highway south both he and his passenger saw a thin black woman wearing white pants, a black top, and black hat on the median in the middle of the highway. Tony had to slow down and stop in order to allow her to cross the road and get to the shoulder on their right side, and the woman turned to stare at him as she did so. Tony's passenger commented that the woman could get killed doing a stunt like that. 


Seven miles down the road the same woman wearing the exact same clothing appeared on the right side of the road where construction was taking place. As they drove by the woman, Tony and his passenger wondered how it was possible for the woman to appear that far away and arrive at that location before they did since he had been driving at 60 miles per hour. At that point, the two considered the possibility that something paranormal had taken place.

"There is no rational explanation as to how that woman was able to get from the first location to the second location seven miles away. I was driving at highway speed, and even if someone picked her up, they would have had to pass me up and drop her off before we reached the construction zone," said Tony.  

After contacting me about this incident we discussed the possibility that what he and his passenger saw was a spirit of someone who had been killed on the highway. Tony re-drove the route and found three memorials along the highway in different locations. Perhaps one of them belonged to this mysterious woman.

Whistleblower Says Coming UFO Document Release is a Blockbuster

Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, told the New York Post that the coming document slated for a June release will be a blockbuster. 

Former President Donald Trump's appropriation bill for 2021 contained a mandate that the Pentagon and other agencies must file a report about UAPs - Unidentified Aerial phenomena. This term is used by government agencies rather than the older term UFO.

Elizondo said the upcoming report will reveal information that the government has known about these objects for many years and has no explanation for many of the sightings such as the Navy tic-tac-shaped objects encountered in 2004, or the very odd “cubes within spheres” seen by Navy pilots in 2014, or the recent Pyramid shaped objects captured on film by pilots.

During a press conference this week, Elizondo stated that UAPs are able to do things that no one on Earth can imagine. He stated that craft have been tracked at 11,000 miles-per-hour and have the ability to turn “instantly.” The human body could not withstand that force. Elizondo stated that for conventional aircraft “if you wanted to make a right-hand turn, it would take you about half the state of Ohio to do it.”

Elizondo explained that some craft can fly extremely low, as low as 50 feet above the Earth’s surface, then ascend to 80,000 feet above the Earth. They can even submerge underwater without a slowing down or affecting the surface of the water. He said, “When you see that, you recognize you are dealing with a technology more advanced than ours.”

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, and The Mutual UFO Network, UFO Sightings were up considerably in 2020. The pandemic may have had something to do with it. 

The videos released by the Pentagon may just be the tip of the iceberg as more and more people are coming forward with their own UAP sightings and capturing them on film. According to Bill Spicer, Margie Kay and Wayne Lawrence, authors of the book The Fast Movers; Evidence of High-speed UFOs/UAPs anyone can capture high-speed UFOs on film using their techniques. "Many people are now waking up to the fact that UAPs are in our skies all the time, and not just a few - hundreds or thousands at any given moment," Said Wayne Lawrence. "After taking a few short videos and going through them frame-by-frame, this is obvious." 

Spicer and Kay each independently developed a method to contact the occupants of the UAPs via mental telepathy. They call this the Quantum UFO Observation Technique.  "Again, this is something that anyone can learn how to do," said Bill. "It is a matter of taking the time to learn and practice, but the results are well worth it."
 
It looks like soon everyone on Earth will be aware of the fact that we are not alone, and have never been alone.

Somebody's Traveling Through Space/Time - Interdimensional Space

 By Bill Spicer

The possibilities of moving through space/time and interdimensional space are fascinating concepts that have perplexed astrophysics for many years.  Any shortcuts through space/time could make space travel or even perhaps time travel a reality out into the cosmos and beyond.

My observations using the Quantum UFO Observation Technique may just support and prove that someone is already capable of moving through space/time and inter dimensional space.  Based on my own research, there appears to be UFO Craft now labeled “The Fast Movers,” capable of doing just that.

Past physicists, such as Einstein, showed that space/time are fundamentally interconnected. Knowing this, traveling through a wormhole might not only take a UFO Craft or person to another place, but could also provide a shortcut into another space/time and other dimensions.

By the use of quantum physics, the possibilities can be observed and tied to a field I will call the Quantum Consciousness Field.  There have been past experiments conducted by the known theoretical physicist John Wheeler, who performed a delayed choice experiment, which is actually several thought experiments in quantum physics.  The most famous is the double – slit light experiment.  He determined that “WE” are what determines if light will behave like a particle or wave.

Injecting this possibility, the Quantum UFO Observation Technique brings together our thoughts, by where we can ask through meditation, that other Beings and occupants of UFO Craft to appear.  Our thoughts are energy that penetrates the Quantum Consciousness Field.  This field holds the fabric of space/time together and is tied to String Theory that has at least six (6) other dimensions able to be predicted.

During observations since 2009, I have been able to witness in real time UFO Craft appearing and disappearing from our space/time.  On a recent Quantum UFO Technique Observation in 2020, a doughnut or worm hole opens up and two Craft can be seen coming through it into our space/time.

 

It happens in a blink of an eye or like a flash of bright light.  The question then, is there any technology that can create and manipulate doughnut or worm holes, or are they simply a part of the universe? It appears that yes, there is technology that can create these doughnut or worm holes in space/time.  But it appears the doughnut or worm holes do not stay open for a very long amount of time. They open briefly then close behind the UFO Craft after it has cleared the event horizon of the  outlet or inlet.

The UFO Craft  with their occupants appear to be using a form of propulsion that can create these openings in the fabric of space/time. It is what I have come to know as “Inflationary Vacuum State Propulsion.” There is an electrical charged field set around the UFO Craft, which is at a natural frequency, that when joined with the Quantum Consciousness Field and thought, can warp the fabric of space/time and create these openings when the occupants are involved by their thoughts inside the UFO Craft.

I invite you to learn how to use the Quantum UFO Observation Technique and to begin by purchasing the book titled: “The Fast Movers – Evidence of High-speed UFOs/UAPs” where the technique is fully explained.
