Residents Of Japanese Town Say A Mountain Has Been A Hotspot For UFOs Since The 1970s

The residents of a mountain town in Japan say they have seen UFOs and aliens since the 1970s, Vice News reported Tuesday.

Iino, a quiet mountain town of about 1,900 outside Fukushima, is adorned with statues of aliens and its mascot is a white alien piloting a golden flying saucer, according to Vice News.

Tsugio Kinoshina, a UFO researcher, said he saw his first UFO in 1972 at age 25 while he was hiking a mountain with his friends, Vice News reported.

“This thing stuck out in front of me,” Kinoshina told Vice. “Starting and stopping in the blue sky. Then all of a sudden, it was gone.”

Kinoshina told Vice he thinks the aliens wanted to let him know they exist. “‘We’re here, too, on the other side of the distant sky,’” Kinoshina told Vice. “I think they just wanted us to know that.”

Since the sighting, Kinoshina has spent his time collecting as much information as he can about extraterrestrial life and does not dismiss people’s stories, according to Vice.

“I listen to what people have to say, and then I draw what can be drawn, and then I transcribe what can be transcribed, and then I make a handmade newspaper,” Kinoshina told Vice.

For decades, there have been stories about alien life near Mount Senganmori, the outlet reported. In September 2020, Japan encouraged the town to open the country’s first-ever lab that observes UFOs. Iino’s UFO lab director, Toshio Kanno, said it’s most important to collect videos and photos of the objects and that documentation is key.

Defense department confirms leaked video of pyramid-shaped UFOs captured by the Navy

The footage of pyramid-shaped unidentified flying objects (UFO) that was leaked last week was indeed authentic, the Department of Defense (DoD) confirmed. Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough said that the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF), which is charged with investigating UFO sightings, was examining the video along with a set of UFO pictures.

“I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel. The UAPTF has included these incidents in their ongoing examinations,” Gough told The Black Vault.

When pressed for more details, the spokeswoman said that the Pentagon does not publicly discuss the military’s UFO encounters or reports about such events to maintain operations security and avoid disclosing information that might be valuable to American adversaries.

Filmmaker Jeremy Corbell and journalist George Knapp on April 8 released the footage along with the UFO photos and information about a Pentagon briefing. Corbell received the materials from an anonymous source and deferred publishing them until he was able to verify their custodianship.

In a website post containing the materials, the filmmaker claimed that he and Knapp confirmed the materials’ authenticity after mining for metadata and approaching people who were familiar of the events depicted.

“These are authentic photos and video from actual military encounters with UFOs, generated to educate high-level intelligence officers within our military on the nature and presentation of the UAP/UFO phenomenon,” Corbell stated on his website Extraordinary Beliefs.

Historic UFO/UAP Office Created in NDAA Signed by Biden

Things are getting strange in DC. How strange? The updated NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden this week.

This happens annually. So why is this year’s version any different? Buried in the usually massive bill is a commissioning of a new office for the research of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon or UAP.

It’s interesting timing considering this new and official unnamed office wasn’t developed after Roswell, Area 51 sightings, the Bentwaters UFOs, or the Phoenix Lights incident. Recently, NASA hired a couple dozen theologians to determine how humanity would react to the announcement of an alien presence.

After decades of denial, the US Government admitting it is taking the research seriously and for the first time putting it out in the open. Well… as open as one would expect from the DC crowd.

From 1947 to 1969, a total of 12, 618 sightings were reported to the secret Project BLUE BOOK. Of these 701 remain “Unidentified.” The project was headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, whose personnel no longer receive, document or investigate UFO reports, according to government archives. Now declassified, Project BLUE BOOK was evidence that investigations have taken place under the cover of darkness in the past.

It’s unlikely that phenomena witnessed after Project BLUE BOOK was terminated were not studied or known about by the U.S. Government. But now there will be an official department to study the reports.

OK! It’s time to take UFOs seriously

Of all the year’s political drama, the most surprising may be the U.S. government’s actions on unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs — better known as UFOs.

The opening act came in June, when the Pentagon and the director of national intelligence delivered an astonishing report to Congress addressing UAPs. Most of these phenomena turn out to have prosaic explanations — such as weather balloons, space debris and atmospheric effects in the sky — with a small percentage exhibiting unusual flight characteristics that suggest advanced technology.

The June report, however, found the opposite: It could account for only one of the 144 UAP sightings between 2004 and 2021 that it examined, including 80 observed with multiple sensors such as high-tech military radar and infrared cameras mounted on warplanes.

Take one of the most memorable sightings, caught on infrared camera in 2004. Navy pilots flying from the USS Nimitz spotted a 40-foot white object resembling a Tic Tac mint levitating erratically above the waters off the California coast. As the pilots approached, the Tic Tac — despite lacking wings or any sign of propulsion — rose to meet them midair before speeding instantly away, vanishing. The report did not conclude what the Tic Tac or any other UAPs are, and it could not attribute them to secret technology developed by the U.S. or any adversaries.

Now Congress wants answers. In November, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) authored legislation creating an office to study UAPs government-wide and report to Congress. Then the Defense Department tried to stake its claim to the issue, shortly after announcing the formation of its own UAP unit. Its team would investigate only UAPs spotted in sensitive military airspace, and it would operate without congressional supervision. Some criticized the half-measure as a preemptive ploy to avert oversight, though the Pentagon denies those claims.

But Gillibrand anda bipartisan bloc of lawmakers, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), were not deterred. They steered legislation through Congress — attached as an amendment to the annual defense bill, sent to President Biden’s desk Wednesday to be signed into law — that establishes a new office to study UAPs. The amendment also requires unclassified reports on UAPs delivered to Congress each year, as well as semiannual classified briefings to legislators.

The move represents the most significant public progress yet to understand UAPs. For all its dysfunction, only Congress has the institutional power and legitimacy to lead this conversation.

Scientists Will Release 3 Terabytes of New UFO Data in 2022

In a blog published on Medium, self-proclaimed UFO researcher Ryan Sprague announced that UAPx, an organization responsible for researching UFOs, or UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena — as the government refers to them), would soon be publicly releasing new data on said UFOs.

“When legally allowed, UAPx will provide, to the world, our reviewed and analyzed data as well as all raw data once we identify and secure storage and servers adequate to the task. It is the opinion of UAPx that the data our team collected, processed, and analyzed, is the most significant collection of scientific data regarding the UFO/UAP phenomena. UAPx adhered to strict scientific methodology in collecting the data, enabling expert analysis, and fostering peer review for potential publication in one or more scientific journals,” said a press release for UAPx according to Sprague.

This data includes over 600 hours of infrared video from numerous FLIR® cameras; a combined total of three terabytes of visual imagery through multiple camera platforms. Sprague added the analysis of this data reveals a significant number of anomalous objects and phenomena still undergoing examination before public release. He further claimed that the nature and type of information captured may imply definitive proof of UFO/UAP presence.

Government agencies have been getting serious about UFOs/ UAPs for a while now. In June of 2021, members of the House Intelligence Committee received a classified briefing with FBI and U.S. Navy officials to discuss UFOs/ UAPs which some lawmakers have dubbed a threat to national security. Also, in the same month, the U.S. government released its first UFO/UAP report ever

UFOs buzzing US warships may be aliens: Top spy chief

UFO’s buzzing warships and being reported by US pilots could be of alien origin, America’s top spy chief has said in a stunning admission.

Avril Haines, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), who oversees all 16 US spy agencies including the FBI and CIA, was speaking at the Our Future in Space event at the Washington National Cathedral.

Haines was quizzed about UFOs which have become a serious national security debate in the US after years of being consigned to the dustbin of conspiracy theories.

The stunning UAP Task Force report published by the Pentagon over the summer admitted there have been unexplained encounters between the US military and mystery objects – such as the infamous TicTac.

And while the report, which analyzed 144 sightings, did not explicitly spell out a possible alien connection – it did not rule it other either as the mystery continues.

NASA hopes UFOs are not adversaries from Earth

The current NASA Director Bill Nelson says he hopes that UFOs are not originating from an adversary here on Earth in an unprecedented statement.

“I’ve talked to those pilots and they know they saw something, and their radars locked on to it. And they don’t know what is. And we don’t know what it is. We hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth that has that kind of technology. But it’s something,” Nelson said.

“And so this is a mission that we’re constantly looking, ‘Who is out there?’ Who are we?’ How did we get here? How did we become as we are? How did we develop? How did we civilize? And are those same conditions out there in a universe that has billions of other suns and billions of other galaxies?’ It’s so large I can’t conceive it,” he added during a live stream chat hosted by politics professor Larry Sabato, director of UVA’s Center for Politics.

Former USAF Officers Claim Aliens Disabled America’s Nuclear Missiles in the 1960s

Scientists, astronomers, and common folk alike have been intrigued by recent sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). On Oct. 7, a group of former United States Air Force (USAF) officers announced that they will present evidence that UFOs have breached American nuclear missile sites over the past few decades.

The submitted evidence will be used to support the claim that nuclear missiles were “inexplicably disabled” by mysterious crafts flying overhead.

Former USAF Captain and nuclear missile crew commander Robert Salas, former USAF captain and nuclear missile crew commander David Schindele, former USAF captain and nuclear missile targeting officer Robert Jamison, and former USAF lieutenant and missile test photographic officer Robert Jacobs will hold a press conference to discuss the matter on Oct. 19.

The panel was organized by Salas, who raised more than $13,000 for the press conference and congressional lobbying through GoFundMe. The officers will present declassified U.S. government documents and witness testimonies as proof of ongoing UFO incursions on nuclear missile sites. 

The ex-officers claim that UFOs disabled weapons systems at nuclear bases. The missiles were even activated by starting launch sequences before the trespassers decided to shut them down.

Military and Commercial Pilots Report Strange UFO Sighting Over Canada

In an intriguing case out of Canada, pilots from both a military and a commercial aircraft reported seeing a strange green UFO in the night sky. The puzzling dual-witness event occurred at around 2 AM on July 31st and was made public in an incident report issued this week by the Canadian Civil Aviation Authority. The department indicated that the sighting unfolded over the Gulf of Saint Lawrence as a military transport aircraft was flying from Ontario to Germany and a KLM Royal Dutch Airlines passenger jet was en route from Boston to Amsterdam. The normally routine flights took an unexpected turn when the pilots of the two separate planes noticed that they had some strange company as they passed through the area.

The incident report states that they each told air traffic controllers that they had spotted “a bright green flying object” that “flew into a cloud, then disappeared.” Alas, that brief description of the sighting is all that was officially revealed by the Canadian Civil Aviation Authority, which ultimately classified it as an enigmatic ‘other,’ meaning it could have been a “weather balloon, meteor, rocket, UFO.” Although the report also states that there was “no impact to operations,” aviation researcher Steffan Watkins looked into the incident and found a rather surprising detail that goes unmentioned in the official report.

The Strangest Encounters With Unidentified Aircraft We’ve Found In The FAA’s Huge Database

The War Zone has begun to analyze some of the thousands of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone and unidentified aircraft incident reports collected in our new mapping tool. Several of these reports describe incidents that have been featured in our previous stories, including one that showcased nearly two dozen unusual incidents involving military aircraft or training ranges. However, many of them have provided leads on new and highly unusual incidents, ranging from puzzling high altitude encounters to craft described as cylinders and even discs.

As might be expected, the degree of severity of the incidents in the data set varies dramatically. Many of the reports describe common but nonetheless concerning safety hazards posed by errant recreational drones flown at low altitudes. Buried within the reports are also much more concerning incidents involving aircraft operating near sensitive facilities, such as nuclear installations and military bases, or at highly peculiar, and illegal, altitudes. The reports also vary considerably in terms of the type of aircraft described. Beyond the expected menagerie of commercial and recreational drones, a number of unusual vehicles are mentioned, including some balloon-drone hybrids, and a small smattering of references to what pilots described as UFOs.
