Are we alone in the universe? Some scientists would say of course not. However, they would contend that the likelihood of another civilization visiting us is highly improbable due to the vast distances involved. The universe is just too big.
Regardless, whenever something strange is seen in the sky that we can’t readily identify, it becomes an item of wonder and speculation. Are we being visited by life from another planet? Unidentified flying objects (UFO’s) are just that, objects in the sky that can’t be identified. Not all of them can be explained away by swamp gas, ball lightning, lenticular clouds, top secret military projects or misidentifications of the planet Venus.
Some sightings remain unexplained and, though they are met with skepticism, some sightings display all the characteristics of intelligence and technology far beyond anything we can come up with on this planet.
I’d like to think that some of these sightings could just possibly be evidence of extraterrestrial visitation. I view any such sighting with a bit of cynicism, and I’d like to think I maintain my objectivity. However, sometimes the evidence is just overwhelming.
What follows are sightings of unidentified flying objects that are so well-documented and credible that they just might be the most believable cases ever for being otherworldly spacecraft.
10 The 1561 Nuremberg Event
9 The 1973 Skylab III Sighting
8 The Yukon Highway Sighting
7 The 1967 Malmstrom AFB Encounter
6 Shag Harbor 1967 Sighting
5 Kelly Johnson’s 1953 Sighting
4 The Chiles/Whitted 1948 Encounter
On July 24, 1948, at 2:45 A.M., two veteran pilots, Captain Clarence Chiles and co-pilot John Whitted, were flying an Eastern Airlines DC-3 over Montgomery, Alabama, en route to Atlanta, Georgia. Unexpectedly they sighted a glowing object in the distance. The object appeared directly in their flight path. Before they could react, the object streaked by them, no more than 2000 feet off their starboard side. The captain veered to his left to avoid a collision just as the object slighted veered to its own left as it passed.
3 The 1980 Rendlesham Forest Sighting
Around 3:00 A.M. on December 26 1980, USAF security officers John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, who were stationed at England’s RAF Woodbridge, saw lights descending into nearby Rendlesham Forest. Believing it to be a downed aircraft, they were sent to investigate. Upon entering the forest they encountered a glowing metallic object with colored lights. Penniston approached the object closely and claims he saw hieroglyphic-looking symbols. Then the object rose gently above the trees before accelerating away at high speed. The object left indentions on the ground and burn marks on the trees.
2 The 1976 Iranian UFO Chase
After 1:00 A.M., on September 19, 1976, the Iranian Air Force scrambled a pair of F-4 jets to investigate and identify an unusual object in the sky. The first jet drew closer to the object but experienced system failures halfway to the target. After breaking off course, its systems were restored. The second jet's pilot recalled he could see the UFO on his radar and it was big, but could not determine the actual size due to its visual brilliance. As he drew nearer, flying above Mach 1, the object sped away at incredible speeds.
1 The 1957 RB-47 Encounter
In the pre-dawn hours of July 17, 1957, an Air Force RB-47 jet bomber, with a crew of six highly trained officers, was on a training mission over Mississippi. As they were preparing to head home, radar picked up an object closing in on them. Though the jet was flying at 500 mph, radar showed the unidentified object catching them and making a complete circle around them before flying off. Then, a short time later, the captain saw a light to his left fast approaching the plane. He ordered the crew to brace themselves as the object flew past the cockpit at unbelievable speed before disappearing. This continued to occur over the next hour with ground radar tracking the object the entire time. When the captain requested permission to intercept the object, the UFO instantly dropped over 15,000 feet in altitude. Low on fuel, the RB-47 had to return to base as the UFO flew off towards Oklahoma.
