“The Battle Of LA is one of the most amazing UFO events in history. Just look at the pictures. The idea that the military opened fire on a weather balloon is laughable.” –KTRN
Seventy years ago today, the Battle of Los Angeles occurred, a vicious fight that resulted in three civilian deaths.
Haven’t heard of it? We’re not surprised.
The U.S. government said what happened was nighttime antiaircraft crews protecting Los Angeles got nervous — it was just two months after Pearl Harbor — and opened fire on a weather balloon.
The crews also set off flares, and all the confusion just built on itself. So we’re told.
Others say the night featured an attempted UFO landing, in which the valiant gun crews fought aliens trying to land.
It’s pretty obvious the latter is true.
Obviously the aliens not only attempted to land, they succeeded. Just look at what’s happened in Hollywood since then. The logic becomes inescapable.
5. The quantity of UFO/alien movies has increased dramatically
Between 1911 and 1941, UFOs and flying saucers were occasionally a subject for films. Since then — especially since the 1950s, after a necessary period of time to learn the equipment and infiltrate studio management — movies about UFOs exploded. Coincidence? who’s being naive, Kay?
4. The quality of UFO/alien movies has increased dramatically
In the 1930s, UFOs were laughably portrayed on screen, obvious frauds. While it understandably took a decade or two to import the necessary technology from the home planet to Earth, all of a sudden you got Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Independence Day and the Transformers series. The aliens’ unstinting desire for complete accuracy in movies is inspiring

“There has been much speculation on the real history of the moon. In 2007, authors Christopher Knight and Alan Butler wrote a book called Who Built the Moon? It’s an interesting speculation and one that may be true.” –KTRN
5 arguments why the Moon must be a spaceship.
1. The Moon’s orbit is at a miraculous distance from the Earth. It is in the only position between the Sun and the Earth that it can be the same size as the Sun in the sky periodically causing solar eclipses as viewed from the Earth.
2. At 2,160 miles in diameter the Moon’s impossibly large to be a natural satellite of tiny planet Earth. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. It has 64 moons. The largest – Ganymede – measures only 3,270 miles across. The Moon’s extraordinary size actually makes it the fifth largest satellite in the solar system.
Only the gas planets – Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune – have the gravitational pull to capture such a massive body as the Moon in its orbit. In comparison, the “moons” of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, are 16 miles and 8 miles across. None of the “rock planets” in our solar system – that is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars – can possibly acquire proper satellites.
3. No convincing scientific theory has explained the presence of the Moon. The Moon’s not a caught asteroid, its shape is of a planetoid, similar to the Moons of Saturn and Jupiter. The Martian asteroid moons Phobos and Deimos are ugly irregular-shaped objects whilst the Moon is an almost perfect sphere, like a planet. The traditional “scientific” explanation of the origin of the Moon is that it was previously a chunk of the Earth, the outcome of a Cosmic Collision billions of years ago. It is unexplained exactly how the original singular planet was split in such a way that both became spherical bodies entwined in orbit. Robin Brett (NASA scientist) said: “It seems easier to explain the non-existence of the Moon than its existence.”
4. Experiments have shown the Moon is hollow. In 1969 NASA hit the Moon with a lunar module in an impact that generated the equivalent in energy of about 1 ton TNT. Of this event, Maurice Ewing, the co-director of the lunar seismic experiment, said “it is as though someone had struck a bell, say, in the belfry of a church, a single blow and found that the reverberation from it continued for 30 minutes.” On a later mission NASA repeated the experiment, this time with the equivalent of 11 tons TNT. This time the Moon shook for 3 hours 20 minutes and enabled them to learn something else: according to one NASA source, the Moon “wobbled” in such a precise way that it was “almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it”. At the time, Sean C. Soloman. MIT said experiments had suggested the “frightening possibility that the Moon might be hollow.”

The stunning image of a UFO was captured on video last week, but is it an alien craft, or is there a simpler explanation?
Anthony Piceno, of American Fork, Utah, said he was drawn to the sight in the air because it was like nothing he had ever seen before.
His footage of the object later appeared on The Weather Channel.
The video shows the blue craft resembling a spinning top floating in the sky and moving very slowly.
Mr Piceno said: ‘I looked up in the sky and, you know, it was just a different object, it was neon blue, red flashing lights’.
He watched the object floating in the sky for a few minutes, observing how it was ‘just cruising slow’ in the sky.
But as with any UFO sighting, there are skeptics, who have their own ideas about what the flying object really was.

“Here is a UFO case you probably haven’t heard before.” –KTRN
By all accounts 41 year-old oil well driller, husband and father of four, Carl Higdon, was not a man prone to flights of fancy, but on the crisp autumn afternoon of October 25, 1974, he had a close encounter with a bizarre being who would not only test the limits of his imagination, but quite literally take him on the ride of his life.
Like many Americans in the 1970s, the hardworking Carl Higdon was hit hard by the recession. As food prices crept ever higher, Higdon decided that he would have to hunt in order to feed his family and stock their icebox with enough meat to get them through the harsh Wyoming winter that was just around the corner. It would be during one such expedition that Higdon would go from being the hunter to becoming the hunted.
THE HUNTER, THE ELK AND THE ALIEN
The day began like any other. Higdon awoke and was getting ready for his 2nd shift work day at the AM Wells Service Company in Riverton, when his telephone rang. After working his way up through the company for the better part of 20-years, Higdon was now the foreman, and therefore it fell to him to take “sick calls” from his crew. He described the situation:
“I was all set to leave for work when one of my key men phoned to tell me that he was sick. Realizing that nothing could be accomplished with him at home, I decided to take the day off.”
Having committed to not going in to work, Higdon decided to utilize his unexpectedly free afternoon by using it to hunt for elk. With his plan in place, the oil man packed his gear into his company pick-up and began heading towards McCarthy Canyon in nearby Carbon County. It was then that a random act of kindness would forever change his destiny.
While cruising toward McCarthy Canyon, Higdon spied a pair of stranded motorists working on their immobile van. The Good Samaritan pulled over and helped them repair their vehicle. During the course of their conversation the duo revealed that they were also hunters and they knew of a place where there was much more game than Higdon’s current destination. Higdon recounted the encounter:
“I pulled in front of them and helped them. During our chat, they told me the hunting was much better farther back in a remote section of the Medicine Bow National Forest.”
Higdon thanked his fellow hunters and without delay decided to change his course and begin driving toward the northern region of Medicine Bow National Park, which is located just 40-miles south of his home in Rawlings. Higdon arrived at the park in the late afternoon. Once there he was surprised to bump into an old buddy:

(KTRN Exclusive) When the topic of UFOs comes up in conversation, the question usually asked is: “Do you believe in them?” My response is always the same: “What is there not to believe?” There is historical proof that people have been seeing weird things in the sky since antiquity. The bottom line is this: The UFO phenomenon is 100% real – period.
Now, the question of what they are is a discussion for another article – and probably another author. I am not claiming that UFOs are flown by reptilian space aliens from Galaxy 7 in Quadrant 19.5. Nor am I saying they are interdimensional beings, Earthlings from the future, or some secret government force that is spying on the people. We don’t know what they are – hence the term Unidentified Flying Objects. They are unidentified – get it?
When the government was “officially” investigating UFOs in the 1950s and 60s with Project Blue Book, even they were baffled by many of the pictures and reports – 22% of the cases were deemed “unknown.” Think about this for a second, let’s just say that 5% of UFO sightings are unknown – doesn’t that make you wonder what they might be? Isn’t it human nature to find out the truth about these types of mysteries? There have been so many sightings over the years that it’s impossible to think that all of them are either hoaxes, conventional aircraft, secret military operations, or natural occurrences like meteors. Even if just 1% of the sightings do not fall into any of these categories, that means at least hundreds, if not thousands, of sightings, photos and videos are absolutely unidentified. In other words, these sightings are real UFOs – flying objects that cannot be explained. Aren’t you curious as to what they might be? And isn’t it odd that the government “officially” stopped looking into the phenomenon? But it gets even weirder.
UFO sightings are not new. In fact, they’re quite old. In 2011, pioneer ufologist, Jacques Vallee, along with Chris Aubeck, wrote a book called Wonders in the Sky. They reported on 500 UFO sightings from 1460 BC to 1879 AD – during a time when mankind did not have modern means of flight. They meticulously avoided using reports that closely resembled anything natural like a falling star. Check out this example from 1621 in France:
Over the city of Nimes was seen something like a great sun, very resplendent, which was surrounded by other luminous torches. It seemed to want to move straight towards the Roman Tower, over which appeared something like fiery chariots surrounded by very bright stars.
I’m not sure what natural aerial phenomenon in 1621 could move round in the sky, surrounded by other weird lights like a moving chariot. Not to mention the object being resplendent – bright, colorful, and glowing.
Have you read the book of Ezekiel? The whole thing is basically a UFO sighting and possible abduction. It reads:
Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings.
If you remove the supernatural element that these beings were angels (which Ezekiel never claims them to be) then you have to ponder what he saw and who these creatures were that came down from a “throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone.” Ezekiel goes on to tell a tale that sounds a lot like a modern day abduction case where the creatures “lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness in the heat of my spirit.” Something happened to this man – something big. Was it God? Angels? Or Extraterrestrials? Whatever it was, he saw a glowing object flying in the sky that interacted with him personally – long before man could even dream of real flying machines. It has to make you wonder. By the way, Ezekiel’s story isn’t the only UFO sighting in the bible.
By now, many of you have seen Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. It describes in great detail the ancient astronaut hypothesis – which basically states extraterrestrials have been influencing man since the dawn of our birth. While I’m not suggesting this argument is correct, it’s interesting to note and very exciting to speculate that we have never been alone – not to mention the evidence is striking. Visit Google and search “ancient alien artwork” and you’ll discover countless paintings from long ago that clearly depicts many modern day looking UFOs. My favorite is Aert DeGelder’s “Baptism of Christ” from 1710. The work depicts an obvious flying saucer with some type of light beaming down upon Christ – baptizing him. Yes, you read that right, a painting from 1710 shows a UFO baptizing Christ. Just where did DeGelder come up with this idea? How and why did he paint a drawing of such a modern day type UFO phenomenon – the “beam of light.”
UFO sightings are constantly being reported. In fact, just this week in Moscow, a large group of protesters saw something weird in the sky – a helicopter looking saucer object that many are speculating was a possible Russian spy plane. Even the mainstream media reported on this, but like they usually do with UFOs, they did it with a tongue in cheek attitude. Why they don’t take the phenomenon seriously is beyond me.
Hopefully in the near future, the entire world will finally know the truth about these weird objects. However, there is one very real fact, mankind has been seeing weird flying machines in the sky for a very long time – and today the common man has no idea of what they are, why they are here, want they want, or what humanity has done that keeps them coming back, time and time again, to check in on what might be their little experiment.
Here is one of the most significant and mind blowing UFO sightings ever to be caught on film. From Turkey – 2008. Look closely to see the inhabitants inside the craft!

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? If you ask celebrity sleuth Robin Leach, he most likely prefers his 50-year pursuit of celebrity stories and gossip to the night he hunted UFOs in the Maine countryside with me some 35 years ago. But maybe not.
Leach — who still offers everybody he meets “champagne wishes and caviar dreams,” his signature phrase from his former 11-year television series, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” — has a longstanding fascination with UFOs and unexplained phenomena.
“It’s something that’s interested me from way back when in England as a newspaper reporter,” he told me recently. “And a good friend of mine, Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon, has told me stories of astronauts coming back to Earth reporting UFOs.”
“Now, UFOs don’t necessarily mean little green men in Martian suits,” he continued. “But there are things that go in space, up there in the sky, that cannot be explained.”
Truth be told, Leach and I actually went UFO hunting one rainy night in 1976 up in Maine after hearing stories of many local citizens spotting strange nocturnal lights in the sky.
That night, our only sightings were numerous raindrops on our rental car’s windshield — it was difficult reminding Robin to keep his eyes on the soaked road instead of in the sky as he drove us through the countryside.
“I think, secretly, we both hoped we’d be abducted,” he said recently. “I have met some very strange people, and some very strange cats — and I’m not talking about jazz greats. I’m talking about animals that people claim have come from outer space, and boy, they’re weird!”
With his seven-days-a-week Vegas Deluxe online site, Leach could easily claim to be the busiest celebrity/entertainment reporter working the famous Vegas strip and beyond.
But over the decades that Leach has globe-hopped in search of the perfect celebrity encounter, he hasn’t talked much about his attraction to UFOs.
“I haven’t ever really raised the subject with celebrities, probably because they’d think I was weird and mad,” he said.

Asteroid 1999 RQ36, which has a one-in-1,000 chance of hitting the Earth before the year 2200, would cause an explosion equivalent to hundreds of nuclear bombs detonating at once.
An analysis of its orbit has predicted that it is most likely to hit us on September 24, 2182 but scientists want to collect a sample of the rock to help forecast its trajectory more accurately.
If Nasa gives the plan the green light, the spacecraft would blast off in 2106 to map out and collect rock samples from the asteroid, which is 1,800 feet-wide.
The planned mission, called OSIRIS-Rex, is one of two finalists in competition for funding as part of the cash-strapped US space agency’s New Frontiers program.
The other contender is a mission to land on Venus. The competing plans will come under discussion at a two-day Nasa workshop in Washington DC starting on today. The winner will be announced next year.
Nasa has officially classified RQ36 as a ‘potentially hazardous asteroid’ as it passes within about 280,000 miles of Earth. Its orbit, which brings it closer to Earth, makes it easier to reach than other asteroids.
Michael Drake, who would lead the OSIRIS-Rex team if the project was chosen, said: “Being one of the easiest targets to get to coincidentally means that it also can easily hit us, too.”
Clark Chapman, a planetary scientist at Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, said an impact from RQ36 would cause a catastrophic explosion.
“It would be an enormous impact, like hundreds of the biggest nuclear bombs ever built exploding at once, creating a crater maybe 10 kilometers across,” he told National Geographic magazine.
An expert panel appointed by Barack Obama, the US president, to assess Nasa’s future space programme last year recommended bypassing the Moon in favour of a mission to land on an unidentified asteroid.
The plan mirrors the plot of the 1998 Hollywood film Deep Impact, in which the White House sends a spaceship to land on an asteroid which is hurtling towards the Earth.
The European Space Agency announced in 2008 that it plans to select a small asteroid, less than 0.6 miles across, near Earth and send a spacecraft to drill for dust and rubble for analysis.
