When it comes to Area 51, facts about the secret military base are hard to come by. Many theories as to the true nature of Area 51 exist, but government silence and a classified seal make it nearly impossible to prove or disprove what really goes on in this highly secretive military installation.
Currently, the official name of Area 51 is Air Force Flight Test Center, Detachment 3 (AFFTC Det.3). It has, however, accumulated several nicknames over the years including Groom Lake, Dreamland, Paradise Ranch, and Watertown.
Area 51 is situated in the southern part of Nevada--approximately 83 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The Nellis Air Force Base surrounds Area 51 from the northwestern side all the way around to the south, leaving the Nevada Test Site to share only the southwestern border.
The only place to catch a glimpse of Area 51 is from Tikaboo Peak, just over 25 miles from the top-secret facility. Hiking to Tikaboo Peak is no easy task, though. Expect a 1 1/2 hour trek from the dirt road at the Peak's base all the way to the top--and don't forget to bring your (Read More....)
Many people believe that life exists beyond planet Earth, and with an endless number of reported and documented UFO and alien sightings, landings, and encounters, the theory that we earthlings are not alone is an impossible one to debunk. While sightings might be easier for some of us to explain away, alleged landings and rare encounters are occurrences that are tough to ignore--especially if there were several witnesses or some sort of physical evidence left behind. If accounts of UFO's pique your curiosity, keep reading. Highlighted for you here are 8 alleged UFO landing sites that have turned many skeptics into believers.
Rendlesham Forest - Woodbridge, England
In late December of 1980, American airmen stationed at a US Air Force base near Rendlesham Forest witnessed what they claim was a UFO landing. When the airmen first spotted the UFO descending into the forest, they thought they were seeing a plane crash. Upon further investigation, they realized that it wasn't a plane at all--it was some sort of spacecraft. Evidence was found in the forest that corroborated the men's stories, and to this day it's one of the most well documented cases of a UFO landing.
Are UFOs and aliens real? Well, it seems like there is a major new UFO sighting video posted up on YouTube almost every single day now. Thousands upon thousands of people around the globe claim to have captured video footage of UFOs. Belief in UFOs and aliens is soaring all over the world as people see more and more evidence that they really do exist. But the problem is that it is just so easy to fake these things.
Just take the video posted below. It might be real. But it would also be so easy to fake. If this ring-shaped UFO really did hover over the city of Los Angeles, where are the other witnesses?
However, there have been SO many UFO sightings where there have been multiple witnesses. The truth is that it is clear that something really IS going on out there.
So exactly what is it?
Well, the truth is that the stories told to those who have been in "contact" with these aliens are often contradictory and full of holes at best.
It is as if these "aliens" can't seem to keep their lies straight.
But there IS abundant evidence that many of these UFOs ARE real and that they have been making contact with individuals and organizations around the globe.
Recent news about the blue spiral phenomenon that appeared in the skies above northern Norway is once again drawing attention to the mysterious UFO sightings that have been regularly occurring around Hessdalen, Norway. In fact, there has been so much UFO activity in and around Hessdalen that some UFO researchers believe that there is an underground alien base there. Others believe that there is a "hyperdimensional portal" or a "stargate" in the area. Sightings of UFOs in the Hessdalen area have been regularly happening since at 1981. There have reportedly been hundreds of UFO sightings in the area in the past three decades. So just what in the world is going on in Hessdalen?
Nobody knows for sure. But the researchers and the witnesses in the video posted below have some very strong opinions....
A UFO video that has been posted up on YouTube numerous times is causing quite a shockwave in Russia right now. The video is posted below, and it appears to show a UFO in the shape of a pyramid hovering over the Kremlin. Some people who have studied the footage say that it would not be possible to fake the triangle shaped UFO that we see in the video. Others insist that of course it is possible to fake just about anything on video these days. In any event, this is causing quite a stir not only in Moscow, but throughout all of Russia. So exactly what did happen in the skies above Red Square that night?
It seems unlikely that such a large craft could hover right above the Kremlin without getting the attention of the Russian authorities. Although this footage is getting a huge amount of attention around the world, the truth is that there is much better UFO footage out there. So why is so much attention being showered on this video? Watch it and judge for yourself.....
What in the world happened in the skies above Norway on December 9th? A spiralling blue light appeared in the skies above northern Norway that made headlines around the world and that left residents of the region absolutely stunned. Some are claiming that the blue light was the result of an embarrassing failed test launch of a new Russian missile. In fact it is true that a Bulava missile was test-fired from the Dmitry Donskoi submarine in the White Sea early on Wednesday. The missile reportedly failed during the third stage. However, many UFO researchers are claiming that the spiralling blue light was actually a stargate or a portal or a wormhole and that there is actually video of something coming through it.
Iran has successfully shot down an unidentified shining object over the Persian Gulf. Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps initially detected three glowing craft flying over the Persian Gulf islands of Khark and Kargou. They were able to target and shoot down one of those craft, but at this point they have not recovered the remains of that aircraft yet.
"Glowing objects were sighted over the Persian Gulf. IRGC air defense targeted one of the objects successfully, forcing it to plummet and sink in the seas off Boushehr (Province)."
Razmjou also added this.....
"The three bright objects were detected by our radars when flying over the Persian Gulf Islands of Khark and Khargou."
So what in the world did Iran shoot down?
Well, there are two possibilities that jump to mind right away.
#1) The most likely scenario is that the three objects were unfriendly drones or aircraft from another nation (most likely either the United States or Israel). It would be a huge embarrassment to have an aircraft shot down for one of those (Read More....)
During a July 22nd solar eclipse, scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing, China believe that they captured some of the most stunning UFO footage ever recorded. These scientists have confirmed that forty minutes of video footage of the UFO was captured during the solar eclipse, and that an investigation is now ongoing to determine just what this UFO is.
But it was not just scientists who saw this UFO. The UFO in the video below was reportedly witnessed by several dozen Chinese students during the solar eclipse, and a number of them photographed or filmed it as well.
Many UFO analysts are already calling this extraordinary sighting in China the UFO event of the year. In fact, there has been such a buzz about this in China that China's mainstream has been forced to report on this story.
YouTube video of this sighting is posted below. Could this be solid evidence that UFOs are real?....
