Wat mij betreft een van de interessantere onderdelen van het UFO-fenomeen: de massa-sighting. Wanneer 1 enkele getuige een overtuigend verhaal vertelt over een vliegende schotel, dan zou je nog kunnen zeggen dat die persoon echt gelooft dat hij of zij iets heeft gezien, maar dat het iets anders was of misschien een hallucinatie. Maar wanneer tientallen of zelfs honderden of duizenden mensen iets gezien hebben, wordt het moeilijker om een sighting zomaar aan de kant te schuiven.


De meest interessante massa-sighting is die van de Phoenix Lights. In 1997 zou een enorm driehoekig toestel over de miljoenenstad Phoenix in Arizona zijn gevlogen en dit is waargenomen door zo'n tienduizend ooggetuigen. De gouverneur van Arizona heeft destijds na veel druk van buitenaf een persconferentie belegd, waarin hij het onderwerp van UFO's belachelijk maakte. Deze gouverneur heeft tien jaar later toegegeven dat hij hetzelfde enorme vliegende voorwerp heeft gezien en dat hij expres het onderwerp ridiculiseerde omdat hij dat als enige uitweg zag. Deze gouverneur, Fyfe Symington (een voormalig gevechtspiloot), heeft zich uiteindelijke ook aangesloten bij de Disclosure Project op basis van deze sighting.


Hier even de engelse omschrijving van de zeer interessante documentaire die beschikbaar is op youtube:


At approximately 11.00 am on Wednesday, 6 April 1966, a class of students and a teacher from Westall High School (now Westall Secondary College) were just completing sports on the main oval when an object, described as being a grey saucer shaped craft with a slight purple hue and being about twice the size of a family car, was alleged to have been seen. Witness descriptions were mixed: Andrew Greenwood, a science teacher, told The Dandenong Journal at the time that he saw a silvery-green disc.


According to witnesses the object was descending and then crossed and overflew the high school's south-west corner, going in a south-easterly direction, before disappearing from sight as it descended behind a stand of trees and into a paddock at The Grange in front of the Westall State School (primary students). After a short period (approximately 20 minutes) the object - with witnesses now numbering over 200 - then climbed at speed and departed towards the north-west. As the object gained altitude some accounts describe it as having been pursued from the scene by five unidentified aircraft which circled the object.


62 jonge schoolkinderen hebben een UFO zien landen en aliens zien uitstappen net achter hun school tijdens de pauze. Het is mij een raadsel hoe 62 jonge kinderen een geintje zouden kunnen uithalen zonder dat er eentje achteraf uit de school klapt en toegeeft dat het allemaal verzonnen was. En hoe kan het dat al deze kinderen zulke goeie acteurs zijn? Kijk naar de interviews en zie hoe ernstig en ook angstig de kinderen zijn als ze hun verhaal vertellen. Hier even weer de engelse beschrijving van het youtube filmpje:


Zimbabwe 1994

In total, there were 62 children outside of the school at the time, and most of the teachers were inside the school at a meeting. It was reported that only one adult was supervising the recess that morning, a mother of one of the children. She operated a snack bar for the students, selling soft drinks, candies, and other favorites.

There had been reports of UFOs in the skies over Zimbabwe only two days before, but it is unlikely that any of the students were aware of these reports. Ariel was a private elementary school, hosting students of all backgrounds. Several of the children stated that they had seen three unknown flying objects in the skies over the school prior to the landing. Students saw the UFOs disappear then reappear in a different place in the sky. Finally, at least one of the UFOs either landed, or hovered just above the ground.


Landed UFO
The UFO was only about 100 meters from the students at play. The object was in a heavily wooded area, which was off limits to the students for safety concerns. Soon, what the students described as a "small man" could be seen on the top of the UFO. The occupant of the craft was described as being about one meter (3 ft.) tall, with a slender neck, long black hair, and very large eyes. He walked down the craft, and proceeded in the direction of the children.

When he noticed the children, he disappeared, and was next seen in the back of the UFO. Within moments, the craft took off, vanishing into the sky over the school. Many of the children were understandably frightened, the little man had evoked many stories they had heard about demons and ghosts. Some of the children ran to the mother who was attending the snack bar, but she did not believe their story, and continued with her duties.


Two of Ufology's most respected investigators researched the Ariel School sighting. Cynthia Hind, now deceased, was known as Africa's top notch researcher, and she was at the school the next day. She requested the school's headmaster, Colin Mackie, to ask the children to make drawings of what they had seen the day before. When Hind arrived at the school, there were some 35 various drawings and sketches waiting for her. They were very similar in their depictions of the craft and being.

Mackie told Hind that she felt the children were telling the truth about what they had seen. One of the students, a young girl, told Hind, "I swear by every hair on my head and the whole Bible that I am telling the truth."

Also, Dr. John Mack, along with researcher Dominique Callimanopulos visited Ruwa. The two men spent two days doing interviews with 12 of the children and their parents. A few of the older students related that they felt they had communicated with the craft's occupants. They were informed that we were were destroying Earth by polluting it, and unless we changed our ways, we would face a failing planet.

The Ruwa, Zimbabwe school sighting soon became news around the world, and was the subject of an episode of TV's "Sightings." Numerous interviews with witnesses have been released on the Internet, and it is considered one of the best "close encounter" cases in UFO history.


Dit is een massa-sighting waar veel politieagenten bij betrokken waren en daardoor zeer interessant. Achteraf zijn er maar een paar agenten geweest die naar voren zijn gekomen met hun verhaal, maar de 911 opname-tapes bewijzen dat er veel agenten zijn geweest die avond die de UFO hebben gezien. Saillant detail is dat de tapes in eerste instantie zoek waren, zoals dat wel vaker gebeurd met UFO bewijs. Gelukkig lagen er nog backup tapes van deze avond ergens in een magazijn. De docu hieronder is maar een korte van nog geen 20 minuten. Hier de Engelse beschrijving van het incident:


This incident is a remarkable UFO situation happening in 1994 near Youngstown, Ohio. The case involved the pursuit of a low-flying object by numerous police officials from a wide area. One officer approached the object at close range, saying it 'lit up the ground as if daylight,' and also declared that the electronic/radio instrumentation of his patrol cruiser was "shut down" by the object.

When did this happen?
The incident actually began before 12:01 a.m. in the early morning hours of Wednesday, December 14, 1994. Before midnight, the Trumbull County 9-1-1 center had already logged several UFO reports from residents near the Sampson Road vicinity. Curiously, UFOs were reported in the area the previous evening, as well as two weeks prior.

Where, exactly, did this occur?
In an area within Liberty Township, about 4-miles north of Youngstown, surrounded by Weathersfield Township to the west, Vienna Township to the north and Hubbard Township to the east. The happening occurred near and above the Youngstown Air Reserve Station, where public relations officers adamently deny the event ever transpired, despite the acquisition of 9-1-1 police dispatch tapes to the contrary.

How were the 9-1-1 tapes acquired?
Several telecommunicators at the Trumbull County 9-1-1 center read the 1996 report entitled: "The Trumbull County Disturbance: The Wrong Liberty," which appeared on the internet. Intruiged by this account, they researched the case and acquired a date of the event. Acting strictly as private citizens and not on behalf of the department, they retrieved the data from the audio tapes stored at the center. The original tapes were said to have been 'missing,' but a backup set was located in another storage area.

It can be demonstrated that police departments across Ohio and other states are more reluctant than ever to associate their departments or officers with alleged UFO occurrences, and understandably so. Those armed with the "badge of truth" do not usually relish their position as the 'middleman' between the U.S. Air Force and the UFO phenomenon.

"From my information, calls placed from police departments to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are forwarded directly to secret offices at the air base that are solely responsible for monitoring the UFO situation," charges George Clappison, UFO researcher and investigator.

Waarom niet simpel net als in elke anderstalige film Nederlands ondertitelen

Een bekende Russische landingscase met zeer veel getuigen vond plaats in 1989 in Voronezh.

@ Jansen Veel van de materie over UFO's en Aliens is in het Engels op internet, zo ook de meeste filmpjes en documentaires.
Ik vind het voor u vervelend dat het moeilijk te volgen is maar kan van de persoon achter deze site begrijpen dat het een hels karwei is alle engels teksten naar nederlands te vertalen.

Beetje jammer dat je de tekst van de filmpjes er in het engels neer zet. Aangezien mijn engels slecht is, en met mij nog vele andere is het een hele opgave om dit te vertalen.

Misschien een tip om de engelse stukken te vertalen.
