UFO Timeline

UFO Timeline
UFO Timeline

This is a second Timeline, the first only contains items found only on this site. This one has a much broader scope. Enjoy.

74 BCE Another, much later, but still early sighting report is described by Plutarch in 74 BC in Phrygia, Asia in the Roman Republic.

150 BCE A “beast like piece of pottery surrounded in flames” descends from the sky and is accompanied by a “maiden dressed in white.”

196 BCE The phenomenon associated with ET and AI craft sightings and referred to as Angel Hair is described in a Roman document.

1800’s In his 1953 published book, Flying Saucers from Outer Space, Major Donald Keyhoe references sightings that occurred during the 1800’s and writes that unusual objects and lights have been reported all over the world as far back as the 1700’s.

1897 Colonel H. G. Shaw and a friend encounter tall, slender humanoids whose bodies are covered with a fine, downy hair. When two of the beings speak to one another their voice sounds guttural and like a monotonous chant. Quoting Shaw, They were without any sort of clothing, but were covered with a natural growth, hard to describe, it was not hair, neither was it like feathers, but it was as soft as silk to the touch, and their skin was like velvet. Their faces and heads were without hair, the ears were very small, and the nose had the appearance of polished ivory, while the eyes were large and lustrous. The mouth, however, was small, and it seemed to me that they were without teeth.

1933 The official and modern day investigation into unidentified flying objects or UFOs begins when mysterious ghost rockets and ghost aircraft are sighted over Scandinavia, Great Britain, and the United States.

1940’s Although a few individuals reported contact with Advanced Intelligences as early as the 18th Century, the Contactee Movement officially begins, although this term will not be recognized widely until the 1950s. Contactees believe they are having benevolent contact with nonhuman beings and often describe them as Space Brothers who are similar in appearance to Humans. Their stories are quite different from those of Abductee/Experiencers who, for the most part, do not go public until over a decade later.

1942 Thousands of people in Los Angeles, California, witness a large unidentified craft hovering over their city. 1,430 rounds of antiaircraft shells are fired at the craft in an attempt to bring it down. It fails. The craft moves toward Santa Monica and then Long Beach, and disappears from view.

1943 Small aerial vehicles of unknown origin are sighted by pilots during WW II. Neither the Germans, the Americans nor the British know what they are or who they belong to. Pilots nickname the objects foo fighters. This same year, a pie pan shaped object is seen by a 26 year old ship fitter in the Navy whilst in the Russell Islands. He will not officially report his sighting until 1947.

1946 Project ORION is conceived by Stanislaw Ulam and Frederick Reines. Project Orion was the study of spacecraft that were intended to be propelled by nuclear pulse propulsion, a series of explosions of atomic bombs detonated behind the craft.

1946 Ghost Rockets and other unidentified flying objects continue to be reported over many different countries, worldwide. A Top Secret U.S. Air Force Europe document from November of 1948 indicates some investigators believe ghost rockets, and later, other unidentified flying craft, are of extraterrestrial design and origin. This document will not be declassified until 1997. This is the same timeframe, 1946-1947, Operation Highjump is underway, which some researchers believe is related to ET and AI craft, as well as Nazi activity in the Antarctic. In 2009 more information will be released via the Russians including incredible theories proposed regarding HAARP’s true purpose.

1947 June: Veteran pilot Kenneth Arnold witnesses nine shiny crescent shaped objects flying in formation near Mount Rainier, Washington. The objects are tracked and are estimated to be travelling at least 1,200 mph.

1947 July 2nd: The crash of what is believed to be an extraterrestrial craft of unknown origin makes newspaper headlines. It becomes known as The Roswell Incident. In the United States alone, there are hundreds of reports of unidentified flying objects throughout this same year.
Early on Tuesday, July 8, 1947 Roswell Army Air Field issues a very strange formal press release, which is immediately picked up by numerous News outlets:

The many rumours regarding the flying disk became a reality yesterday when the intelligence office of the 509th Bomb group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disk through the cooperation of one of the local ranchers and the sheriff’s office of Chaves County. The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having phone facilities, the rancher stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the sheriff’s office, who in turn notified Maj. Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office. Action was immediately taken and the disk was picked up at the rancher’s home. It was inspected at the Roswell Army Air Field and subsequently loaned by Major Marcel to higher headquarters.

1947 September: Two short months after the Roswell Crash, the Central Intelligence Agency is created to pick up where the OSS leaves off, and ironically the CIA is created the same month as MJ-12. Still a hotly debated topic, MJ-12 or Majestic 12 is an alleged highly secret panel formed by President Truman to investigate UFOs and report its findings to the President.

1947 September: Majestic 12, also referred to as Majestic Twelve, Majestic 12, MJ-12, and MAJIC, are all forms of the code name for the control group authorized by President Truman on September 24, 1947. The Director of Central Intelligence Agency is also the Director of Majestic Twelve, and is designated as MJ-1. The control group is formed to oversee top secret research and development that is responsible only to the President. The need for this group is stated to be directly related to the discovery of the downed extraterrestrial craft two months earlier near the town of Roswell, NM.

There are approximately 13 other once secret and ongoing secret projects associated with MJ-12. Their descriptions follow:

Project PLATO is formed and is responsible for so called diplomatic relations with the aliens. This is a project where a secret treaty is formed with the following terms: Extraterrestrials will provide the U.S. Government technology and not interfere with its history. In return, they will be allowed to abduct certain humans. Our government is to keep quiet about the abductions as one of the terms of this agreement. The extraterrestrials will then furnish MJ-12 with a list of abductees on a periodic basis for governmental control of the experiments.

Another project called Project GARNET is responsible for the collection of the paperwork associated with these abductions. The existence of these two projects and their missions remain in dispute. According to certain ETs, our government went back on its word. If this paperwork ever really existed, one might ponder the question: Was this paperwork of terrestrial origin or ET origin? Are ETs or Advanced Intelligences still using paper?

1947 Project SIGN is created by the Air Force to study UFOs, their performance and their purpose. In order to preserve security, a liaison between Project SIGN and Majestic 12 is limited to two people within the intelligence division of Air Materiel Command. Project SIGN is created to investigate unidentified flying craft as well as to conceal the truth from the public.

1948 Pilots of an Eastern Airlines DC-3 report being on a collision course with a cigar shaped object nearly twice the diameter of a B-29 with no protruding surfaces. According to one of the pilots, the craft pulls up with a tremendous burst of flame from the rear and zooms into the clouds as its prop wash or jet wash rocks the DC-3.

1948 Project SIGN is renamed Project GRUDGE and the Air Force’s study of UFOs is conducted under the code name Project BLUE BOOK. In reality, Project GRUDGE does not conduct a serious study of UFOs, and the group loses its support from the Pentagon. Project GRUDGE debunks every UFO case it investigates.

1948 Intrusions by ET and AI craft begin to occur over sensitive military bases and nuclear installations across the United States and are addressed in a 1952 secret CIA report.

1948 - 1949 Project TWINKLE is created by the Air Force in response to what is believed to be extraterrestrial guided missiles described as green fireballs that explode near Albuquerque, NM.

1950 Another project dubbed Project BLUEBIRD is approved by the first CIA Director, Roscoe Hillenkoetter. He also approves the use of unvouchered, untraceable or black budget, funds to pay for its sensitive areas. This begins the CIA’s first structured human behavioural control program. Their goals consist of “controlling individuals to the point where the subject will do their bidding against their will and against such fundamental laws of nature as self preservation. Some of their experimental subjects include Canadians and North Korean prisoners of war and suspected double agents. Although U.S. experimented on Canadians, the Canadian government was notorious for their own experiments on humans, including their own citizens. This is also the year the famous FBI UFO Memo was issued. Its true purpose remains dubious.

1951 Project GRUDGE is renamed Project BLUE BOOK.

1951 U.S. military pilots report unidentified flying objects, ET and AI craft, near Iceland and in many locations across the United States.

1952 The Year of the UFO. Another wave of ET and AI craft sightings occurs. On July 19th and 20th, they are seen across Washington, D.C. by the crews of several airliners, and are tracked on radar at Andrews AFB as well as Air Traffic Control Center at Washington National Airport. For the next 70+ years Americans, who succumb to the behavioural induced UFO debunking machine created by these many projects listed here, will ignorantly ask: If the aliens are coming here, why don’t they land on the White House lawn? They nearly did.

1952 National Security Agency, NSA is formed as a separately organized agency within the Department of Defense. Headquartered at Fort Meade, Maryland, its main functions are to protect U.S. government communications and intercept foreign communications. They have the ability to monitor, translate, and decipher communications of any kind. With the exception of ufologists and people experiencing and reporting abductions, many people across the world have no idea the NSA is also monitoring every aspect of their communications as well. The NSA will not be spoken about publicly until 1964 when it was briefly mentioned in a book exposing the CIA and published by David Wise and Thomas B. Ross entitled The Invisible Government.

1952 Toward the end of 1952, the Air Force has over 1,500 new UFO reports in their files and 303 of those are unidentified. The sightings over Washington D.C. change much for the Air Force. Since publicity is overwhelming, a special panel is created to officially debunk ET and AI craft. That panel is sponsored by the CIA and is called The Robertson Panel. According to the Robertson Panel: The debunking aim will result in reduction of public interest in flying saucers, which today evokes a strong psychological reaction. This education could be accomplished by mass media such as television, motion pictures, and popular articles, Such a program should tend to reduce the current gullibility of the public and consequently their susceptibility to clever hostile propaganda. The Air Force’s plan, i.e., the debunking and ridiculing aim of the Robertson Panel is successful and remains an effective psychological tool against the public into the 21st Century.

1953 Project AQUARIUS is established, allegedly in 1953 by President Eisenhower under control of MJ-12. AQUARIUS contains all information collected by the United States since it began investigating Unidentified Flying Objects and Identified Alien Craft or IALs. According to some, AQUARIUS was the U.S. government’s secret project to research extraterrestrial biological entities and their presence on the Earth.

1954 On May 5th, two huge objects manoeuvre at a high altitude over D.C. On May 6, 1954 Navy radar tracks an enormous machine circling 90,000' above the capital. In June the same spaceship or a similar one returns, this time remaining for two hours while maneuvering between the Capital and Baltimore. Again, over the next 70+ years, Americans who succumb to the behavioural induced UFO debunking machine created by these many projects listed here will ignorantly ask: If the aliens are coming here, why don’t they land on the White house lawn? They could have if they wanted to.

1954 The Sea Fury UFO incident, involving an experienced naval pilot, occurs near Goulbourn, NSW, Australia. There is radar visual confirmation, independent ground witnesses, and apparent intelligent responses to witnesses’ thoughts about a possible collision.

1954 Project REDLIGHT is allegedly created to test fly recovered extraterrestrial craft, which results in the deaths of the pilots.

1954 Project SIGMA is created from Project SIGN to allegedly establish communications with aliens. Information comes from first and second hand reports of military personnel who are based at the secret Groom Lake facility stating Project Sigma is successful. It is believed to be continuing to the present day, but under a different project name.

1955 The First Wave of modern day extraterrestrial abductions has been fully operational for over a decade and people are awakening to the reality of an extraterrestrial presence. Contact continues steadily over the following decades. Many of these individuals discover they have grandparents who have also experienced contact, but few speak openly.

1955 Georgia Sen. Richard B. Russell Jr., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, is on a trip to Russia, travelling on a train when he and others in his party see a disk shaped craft take off near the train tracks. The reports they complete for the U.S. Air Force are classified as Top Secret and remain that way until they are eventually released via FOIA, Freedom of Information Act.

1957 A South American farmer named Antônio Vilas Boas is abducted by non human beings and is taken on board a craft which lands in his field. Vilas Boas tells his story to outsiders for the first time in 1958. It will be another 4 years before the Betty and Barney Hill abduction occurs in the United States.

1958 Major Donald Keyhoe, Director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomenon, NICAP, appears as a guest on the Armstrong Circle Theatre Show. He plans to make an announcement about what the United States government knows about UFOs. He begins by stating:
And now I’m going to reveal something that has never been disclosed before, for the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy about UFOs, At that moment the producer of the show cuts the audio and the public is not able to hear the remainder of Major Keyhoe’s statement. Later it is determined to have been done because of pressure from an Air Force spokesman in the interest of national security.

1959 It is alleged that first communication with extraterrestrials is established through use of binary computer language, despite the fact that nearly every case of human contact with extraterrestrials involves mind to mind or telepathic communication.

1959 During a UFO wave in the area of New Guinea, William B. Gill, an Anglican priest with a Mission in Bosinai, Papas New Guinea, observes structured UFOs. One craft has humanoid figures on top. Approximately 25 natives, including teachers and medical technicians also observe the phenomena. Some of the witnesses signal the humanoids and receive an apparent response.

1961 Whilst driving home to New Hampshire from Canada one night in 1961, a couple named Betty and Barney Hill spot a flying saucer in the sky. After many months of distress they seek psychiatric help. After several hypnotic regressions they recall being abducted by humanoids, later called aliens. This is the first widely reported case of alien abduction in the United States. Their story is published in 1966.

1961 The phenomenon of phantom pregnancies and missing fetuses begin to occur to women in ever increasing numbers. This phenomenon will not be directly associated with alien abductions until the 1970’s and they will be most widely reported during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

1963 November 12 President John F. Kennedy sends a memo to the head of the CIA, seeking documents about UFOs, just 10 days before he is assassinated. In a letter dated November 12, 1963, JFK requests a review of all UFO intelligence files that might affect national security. On the same day, Kennedy sends a separate memo to NASA, indicating he wants to cooperate with the then, Soviet Union on outer space activities.

1963 November 22: President John F. Kennedy is assassinated. Rumours persist into the 21st Century that his murder was a direct response of his efforts to learn about the UFO problem and the U.S. military’s involvement.

1963 Project REDLIGHT is recreated out of AQUARIUS. Its mission is to test the technology and flight capabilities of recovered alien craft. The mission is accomplished in part only and was terminated this same year after every recovered craft exploded during test fights killing all of the pilots.

1964 An unidentified craft landing occurs leaving behind physical evidence. The landing occurs in Socorro, NM and is witnessed by a police officer named Lonnie Zamora. The Air Force is involved in the investigation of the case and lists it as unidentified. The following day, it is alleged that an officer from the OSI meets with extraterrestrials at a prearranged desert location in New Mexico where he is given a basic understanding that several species of extraterrestrial life exist in three basic categories:

1. Helpful or Benevolent,

2. Neutral,

3. Dangerous or Malevolent.

1964 Reports begin to come in from other people claiming to have seen non-humanoid beings in association with unidentified craft, i.e., extraterrestrial and advanced intelligences. Reports involving mysterious government men who attempt to silence witnesses are reported in increasing numbers. These mysterious men are termed MIBs or Men In Black. There is speculation that MIBs are CIA agents or people from another more secretive agency, and some of them turn out to be those types. Ufologists and abduction researchers believe the MIBs are aliens disguised as humans, and some cases do in fact point to this being true. Others suspect they may be time travellers due to the odd way they dress and their mannerisms. The theme of time travel, whether by Humans or Advanced Intelligences or Extraterrestrials becomes a common thread in abduction research by the late 20th Century.

1965 An unidentified craft flies near Edwards Air Force Base in California. After calling it a weather balloon, decades later a pilot and multiple ground witnesses come forward and reveal that 5 separate air defense ground installations were aware of, or tracked the object.

1965 The Kecksburg, PA Crash occurs and remains officially unsolved into the 21st century despite the fact it is a mass sighting, the military is involved in removing a large object and there is one death of a witness.

1966 Michigan Rep. Gerald Ford calls for an official government hearing on the subject of UFOs after his home state experiences a wave of sightings. This is an incident which will result in the use of the phrase swamp gas as a possible explanation for UFOs. Ford writes a letter to the House Armed Services committee that reads in part:
It is the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force. I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomenon. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject.

1966 A Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects is contracted to the University of Colorado and Chaired by Dr. Edward U. Condon. The results of the panel are dictated before the first meeting. Despite objections of the other panel members, Dr. Condon leads the study to fulfil the mission. The general conclusion is that nothing has come from the study of UFOs in the past 21 years that has added to scientific knowledge. A panel from the National Academy of Sciences agrees. The press and the public are satisfied and duped, respectively. Except for a hard core element of UFO believers the issue dies in the public forum.

1967 A man named Stephen Michalak comes across a landed UFO near Falcon Lake, Canada. When he touches the craft a blast of hot air shoots out of an exhaust grill and hits him. He immediately becomes nauseous and has a terrible headache. The burst of hot vapour creates a painful burn mark on his stomach.

1967 The Betty Andreasson extraterrestrial contacts begin. Years later Betty and Bob Luca will go public, launching a series of books written by Raymond Fowler. The ET contact experienced by Betty, her husband and their family bring the term for the beings as Watchers into the consciousness of the abduction research community including a new generation called Millennials who begin contact study groups using the name Watchers.

1967 Project MOONDUST is created and acts as a foreign space debris program of the U.S. Air Force System Command’s Foreign Technology Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio…While its primary function appears to be the recovery of missile and satellite debris, there are indications that it is also involved in the recovery of more exotic artifacts such as extraterrestrial craft.
Operation UFO is an NSA operation in support of Project PLUTO, of which little information is made available. The few mentions are made by a controversial man named William Moore. Its mission is to form intelligence teams to be the first on scene of any UFO crash site in order to secure the technology and prevent it from falling into foreign hands. Several teams exist across the world. The United States is specifically concerned that ET technology does not fall into Soviet hands. The mission is to be accomplished regardless of the country of occurrence. Extraterrestrial craft recoveries occur in foreign countries as well as the U.S.

It has been confirmed that at lest one alien craft was retrieved from the Russians either voluntarily or through one of the aforementioned programs. The disk is similar in appearance to another craft that was already in the possession of the U.S. military.

1967 The Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia UFO Crash occurs and the search of the vehicle involves a Canadian Naval Vessel.

1968 Indiana Rep. J. Edward Roush, a member of the Science and Astronautics Committee and the chairman of a UFO symposium in 1968, includes six scientists invited to discuss the various aspects of UFOs. In 1975, Roush will tell HuffPost’s Lee Speigel, The people want to know what a UFO is, and therefore, any chance that we have to learn, we should take advantage of it. When you tell an American, I can’t explain it,’ he wants to know, Why can’t you explain it? Why doesn’t someone explain it? And I think that kind of pressure is going to change the view of many government officials and members of Congress in the future.

1968 Project POUNCE is created out of AQUARIUS. The mission of Project POUNCE is to evaluate all unidentified flying objects or UFOs as well as Identified Aerial Craft or IACs and their relevance to space technology. Their goal is to duplicate the technology and/or improve upon it. It is hoped the ultimate use of this technology will establish the United States as the dominate world power and close the gap in any confrontation with extraterrestrials. It doesn’t work.

1969 Project BLUE BOOK is officially terminated. When BLUE BOOK is made public, every serious researcher is keenly aware it is nothing more than a well planned cover-up of UFO, i.e., ET and AI, sightings, photographs, videos, and investigations by the Government of the United States. Again, the public falls for the U.S. Government lie. MKSEARCH continues into the early 1970’s, and more experiments are performed under ORD, the Office of Research and Development. Some of these experiments consist of implanting electrodes into the brains of cats, dogs, and reptiles and controlling the animals remotely. Animal experiments are always performed first and heinously.

1970 Throughout the decade of the seventies, a wave of unidentified craft, i.e., ET and AI craft sightings occur in Bolivia, Spain, Korea, Iran, and Peru.

1972 Project SNOWBIRD is established as a cover for Project REDLIGHT to test fly recovered alien craft and is said to be continuing in Nevada. Project AQUARIUS, which is still classified in 1972, is also related to the study of craft belonging to Extraterrestrials and Advanced Intelligences. At the time an LFF contributor views information related to Project SNOWBIRD, it exists in approximately 15 or 16 volumes. This project becomes an independent project when Project SIGN is eliminated in 1960. Project AQUARIUS refers to Extraterrestrials and Advanced Intelligences as Alien Life Forms or ALFs. The mission of Project AQUARIUS is to gather all scientific, technological, medical and intelligence information from UFO & IAC sightings and contacts with Alien Life Forms. The information is to be used in the space program. Names and acronyms for various components relating to the subject are continually changed to avoid detection via FOIAs.

1972 Project EXCALIBUR is formed to replace Project Aquarius. Its mission is to create weapons to be used against alien life living in underground installations on Earth. Operation BLUEFLY supports Projects UFO and MOONDUST to provide quick response Alpha teams’ mechanical and technological support in the recovery and transport of downed craft and/or alien technology and/or transport of EBEs, Extraterrestrial Biological Entities, dead or alive. In addition to this mission, BLUEFLY is also serving as a retrieval team for terrestrial downed craft and technology, including nuclear weapons. Several teams exist worldwide.

1973 Brought forth approximately 200 cases of people reporting interaction with apparent non human, yet humanoid beings, leading Walter Webb and other ufologists to label this the Year of the Humanoids.

1973 While he and his wife are driving near Ann Arbor, MI. in October of this year, Ohio Gov. John Gilligan reports a UFO. Gilligan describes the object as vertical shaped and of an amber color.

1973 While fishing one night in Pascagoula, MS, Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker hear a zapping sound. When they look in the direction of the sound, to their amazement, they see a craft approaching. There is no engine noise, just a pulsing blue light. So begins another abduction of humans by nonhuman beings. Their case is investigated by astrophysicist Dr. Josef Allen Hynek, Professor of Astronomy at Northwestern University, who is also a leading UFO expert in America. The case is made public, first by the press, and then by Charles Hickson. Hickson's and Parker's lives are never the same again. Josef Allen Hynek also worked in cooperation with Projects SIGN, GRUDGE and BLUE BOOK.

Project Sign (1947–1949)

Project Grudge (1949–1952)

Project Blue Book (1952 to 1969)

1973 CIA Director Richard Helms, a real patriot, orders the destruction of all files related to the MKULTRA program. Helms cherishes keeping official secrets and is the only DCI, Director of CIA, to be convicted of misleading Congress, the very least of his crimes.

1973 Astronauts onboard Skylab photograph unknown objects and are reported to the public as blurred images.

1974 Based on the star map Betty Hill drew from the map she was shown during her and her husband Barney’s abduction, The Zeta Reticuli Incident by Terrence Dickenson is published in Astronomy Magazine as a vehicle to engage the public in the subject of UFOs, i.e., craft piloted by Extraterrestrial and Advanced Intelligences.

1974 Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater reveals he previously attempted to find out what was in the building at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, where UFO information was allegedly stored. His request is denied because it it classified above Top Secret. In a 1988 interview with Larry King, Goldwater will say he believes secret government UFO investigations were occurring.

1974 President Richard Nixon becomes part of UFO folklore when he takes comedian Jackie Gleason to Homestead Air Force Base in Florida in 1974 and shows him wreckage of a flying saucer as well as the remains of several extraterrestrials. The story is made public by Gleason’s wife, Beverly, who tells Esquire magazine that her husband had related this tale to her. Gleason, who was known to have a strong interest in UFOs, reports the story to author Larry Warren, who is involved in UFO encounters experienced by military personnel at RAF Bentwaters in U.K.

1975 UFOs are seen flying over Wurtsmith AFB in Michigan, a secure SAC B-52 Base housing nuclear weapons.

1975 Travis Walton, a logger at the time, is abducted and goes missing for five days. His extraterrestrial abduction account will become one of the most famous and well documented cases on record.

1976 Four men, including two twins, are abducted during a camping trip. Their case will become one of the best documented multiple abduction cases on record and leads to the publication of The Allagash Abductions by Raymond Fowler.

1976 Tehran, Iran: The Iranian Air Force attempts to engage an unidentified craft. The event is so well documented it leads the Defence Intelligence Agency to label it: An outstanding report. Furthering with, This case is a classic which meets all the criteria necessary for a valid study of the UFO phenomenon.

1980 A man named George Blackwell witnesses an unidentified craft hovering over a 10,000 gallon water tank in Rosedale, Victoria, Australia. After removing water from the tank, the craft lands approximately 50' away. As Blackwell approaches the craft, a loud whistling sound occurs which almost knocks him down and the craft abruptly leaves. The following day he discovers black marks on the ground, missing water from the water tank and a suction appearing after effect in the mud inside the tank where all of the water had been removed.

1980 During litigation against CIA by Citizens Against UFO Secrecy, CAUS, a representative of NSA admits in a court hearing that NSA has found a total of 239 documents on UFOs that are relevant to FOIA requests.

1980 December 24th & 25th, The Rendlesham Forest Incident occurs in the UK and remains one of the most important UFO cases involving military personnel to date. Many years later, it will be revealed there is a possibility the event involved time travel or time management.

1980 Four days later, on December 29th, a fiery object is seen in the Texas night sky by a woman named Betty Cash, her friend Vickie Landrum, and her seven year old grandson Colby. The object has flames shooting down from it and the three witnesses get out of their car to take a better look. The object is diamond-shaped and is making beeping sounds. It is surrounded by 23 Chinook helicopters that appear to be escorting or encircling the fiery craft. After this event, Betty experiences a blinding headache, pains in her neck and nodules on her head and scalp that burst, seeping clear fluid. She suffers from vomiting, nausea, and diarrhoea. Four days later she is admitted to the hospital as a burn victim. Betty develops breast cancer and undergoes a mastectomy. The witnesses sue the U.S. government, but their case is eventually dismissed on the grounds that no such object is owned, operated or in the inventory of the Air Force, Army, Navy, or NASA. To add insult to injury, the involvement of the 23 Chinook helicopters is covered up with the military claiming none of its helicopters were flying that night: Another government lie that is maintained well into the 21st Century.

1980 Linda Moulton Howe produces her awarding winning documentary about cattle mutilations and their extraterrestrial connection in A Strange Harvest.

1981 Budd Hopkins publishes Missing Time, which becomes a best seller. He introduces the term missing time as it relates to the Contact Phenomenon as unaccounted for time due to the direct results of being abducted by extraterrestrials.

1982 New Mexico Sen. Harrison Schmitt, the Apollo 17 astronaut who was the last man to walk on the moon, was also interested in extraterrestrial craft. He’s quoted saying:
If the government has any information on UFOs, it should be released to the public, barring anything that might affect national security. We ought to be involved in a search to find out if there’s any good evidence that UFOs really are spacecraft that are being piloted by extraterrestrial beings.

1984 Jamie Shandera receives an envelope containing information about MJ-12 also known as Majestic 12.

1985 In a speech made to Fallston High School Students and Faculty, Ronald Regan states:
When you stop to think that we’re all God’s children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn’t help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together.

1987 The Gulf Breeze, Florida UFO Wave Begins with mass sightings and extraterrestrial abductions involving several residents, including Ed and Frances Walters, leading to the publication of The Gulf Breeze UFO Sightings. This book includes the clearest and most detailed photographs of alien craft ever photographed by a civilian.

1987 Thomas E. Bullard publishes The Measure of a Mystery, the results of a large scale comparative analysis of approximately 300 cases of Alien Abduction. Some of the abduction cases he cites occurred during the 1950’s. Bullard’s study marks the first time in modern history that a civilian academic examines and publishes about the phenomenon of extraterrestrial abductions.

1987 In a speech made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations, Ronald Regan states:
In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us realize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.

1988 During a speech with President Mikhail Gorbachev, Ronald Regan tells Gorbachev and their audience:
I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.

1989 The famous Amoco Oil ET advertisement makes its debut in the pages of Aviation Week & Space Technology. The page they choose to publish the ad on is 51, alluding to the not so secret base, Area 51.

1992 The MIT Abduction Conference takes place in Cambridge Massachusetts, marking a new era of thinking concerning the phenomenon of Extraterrestrial Contact, most commonly referred to at the time as alien abductions.

1992 A man in Sidney Australia named Peter Khoury is abducted by non Human beings. Afterward he finds hair he suspects matches that of his female abductor whom he describes as Nordic appearing. Analysis of the hair yields anomalous properties leading to a highly suspect Hybrid origin of the hair in that it has unusual genetic properties.

1992 Abductee Experiencers and Contactees begin publishing their own stories of Contact, including having witnessed human clones during their experiences.

1993 SDI is renamed the Ballistic Defence Missile Organization during the Clinton Administration.

1993 Kelly Cahill of Narre Warren North, Victoria, Australia, her husband and three children are abducted by beings with dark skin and red eyes. Their abduction is witnessed by people in another car nearby leading this to be termed a multiple witnessed abduction experience that leaves behind physical trace evidence.

1993 The phenomenon of military abductions and military personnel seen during abductions are reported and self published by people experiencing them. The abduction research community is very resistant to the idea, but approximately one year later, notable researchers such as Budd Hopkins and Linda Howe make public statements acknowledging having also received similar reports from abductees.

1994 62 school children witness an unknown disk shaped craft and a small man on their school grounds in Zimbabwe. Their case will be come a focal point of John E. Mack’s investigations into the abduction phenomenon.

1995 Martin Cannon disavows his monograph, The Controllers: A New Hypothesis of Alien Abduction due to death threats from Gordon Novel and threats and harassment by at least two of Novel’s close associates and friends.

1996 George Pedley, of Tully, Queensland, Australia is driving a tractor heading south along a narrow track on Albert Pennisi’s sugar cane farm. When he is approximately 25 yards from Horseshoe Lagoon, Pedley hears, above the noise of the tractor, a loud hissing sound. He continues to drive on and witnesses a convex shaped craft rise out of a swamp. As it does so, it also spins. Physical traces termed nests, agriglyphs or crop circles, are discovered after the event.

1996 Two little known works are published regarding the phenomenon of MILABS; an acronym for Military Abductions of Abductees. Project Open Mind: MILABS in 1996 and MILABS: Military Mind Control and Alien Abduction in 1997. Although not known to the general public, they spark a lively debate and much controversy within the UFO research community. The acronym MILABS sticks, but remains a controversial and misunderstood subject within the UFO research community. MILABs eventually becomes topic non grata.

1997 The Phoenix Lights Sightings occur in and around Phoenix, Arizona and remain unsolved. Witnesses who saw the craft are convinced it was of Extraterrestrial origin.

1997 Dr. Helmut Lammer disavows his research into MILABs, military abductions and mind control, for similar reasons, and persons involved, as Martin Cannon disavowed The Controllers: A New Hypothesis for Alien Abduction. This same year, Professor Stephan Marinov, Founder and Director of the Institute of Fundamental Physics in Graz, Austria who was an effective leader of the European Free Energy Movement, fell out of a high window on July 15, 1997.

2002 John Podesta speaks at a 2002 news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., where he calls upon the U.S. government to declassify UFO records that are more than 25 years old.

2004 New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and 2008 presidential candidate, calls on the U.S. government to declassify all Roswell UFO documents. Richardson writes:

The mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained. Clearly, it would help everyone if the U.S. government disclosed everything it knows. The American people can handle the truth, no matter how bizarre or mundane.

2006 A sighting of a disk shaped craft at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport occurs and is witnessed by United Airlines’ pilots, flight crew personnel and others. The case officially remains unsolved with the craft listed as unidentified. It is another coverup, an embargo on the truth, in a long line of coverups by the U.S. government.

2007 Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich enters the UFO culture during one of the 2007 Democratic presidential debates, by admitting he has seen a UFO.

It was an unidentified flying object, OK? It’s like, it’s unidentified. I saw something. More people in this country have seen UFOs than I think approve of George Bush’s presidency…

2007 Charles A. Huffer publishes his detailed critique of Betty Hill’s Star Map and Marjorie Fish’s interpretation of it in his complimentary review of Captured, Kathleen Marden’s book about her Aunt and Uncle Betty and Barney Hill and their pivotal alien abduction experience. However, he does not believe the Zeta Reticuli Theory of where the aliens originate holds up under scientific scrutiny.

2007 Former Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta tells a National Press Club press conference about the need for UFO disclosure:
I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark and the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth.

2008 The Stephenville, Texas UFO Sightings occur near the then current President George W. Bush’s Crawford Ranch. At least one alien abduction was reported the night of January 8th to MUFON with an illustration of one of the aliens involved, but it is unknown what happened with the report.

2009 Historian Richard M. Dolan publishes UFOs and The National Security State: A Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973, equally as recognized within the UFO community regarding government cover ups as James Bamford’s Puzzle Palace outing the NSA and Walter Bowart’s Operation Mind Control detailing project MKULTRA.

2009 June: The Pentagon releases an official, potentially disastrous, directive stating:
Observations by top secret government spacecraft of incoming bolides are to be classified as secret and information about them is not to be released… even to organizations such as NASA.
For many years, scientists benefited from data received by classified military satellites about these natural fireballs and related phenomena that enter Earth’s atmosphere, but in 2009, sharing potentially lifesaving information between the military and civilian scientific organizations ends.

2010 NH State Representative Henry W. McElroy records a video in which he claims to have seen a briefing document from the 1950’s that described how benevolent aliens were present in the U.S. and that a meeting could be arranged between them and former President Eisenhower.

2010 Global Warming is officially recognized by the Pentagon as a destabilizing force with the potential to place U.S. military forces in danger around the world. What ufologists fail to recognize or admit is that for nearly 60 years, abductee experiencers have been reporting images, via holographic technology and telepathic communications from Extraterrestrial beings and Advanced Intelligences warning that such events would transpire for humanity and during their own lifetimes.

2011 A book detailing 13 years of research into Betty Hill’s Star Map and names the hub star of one species of alien Grey is mapped out. The UFO community is resistant to changing their opinion of The Zeta Reticuli Incident, which is based on Marjorie Fish’s interpretation of Betty Hill’s Pegasus based star map.

2013 The Chelyabinsk Meteor was a near Earth asteroid that entered Earth’s atmosphere over Russia on 15 February 2013 at about 09:20 YEKT, 03:20 UTC, with an estimated speed of over 41,000 mph, almost 60 times the speed of sound. According to many sources including Wikipedia, the object was said to have been undetected, which of course is ludicrous. It was a near Earth asteroid and the reason the people of Russia were not informed is because in June of 2009 the United States Pentagon released an official statement that, observations by top secret government spacecraft of incoming bolides were to be classified as secret and information about them is not to be released, even to organizations such as NASA. About 1,500 people were injured seriously enough to seek medical treatment, Some 7,200 buildings in six cities across the region were damaged by the explosion’s shock wave. No wonder Putin is so angry with the United States.

April 2013 Stephen Bassett’s Paradigm Research Group holds a Citizen’s Hearing on UFO Disclosure in Washington, D.C., which lasts four days. 40 witnesses from 10 countries testify over a four day period before six former members of Congress. Other than Huffington Post’s Weird News, it receives little coverage by the NSA/CIA Intelligence controlled media; thus reinforcing the mandate of the Robertson Panel:
The debunking aim will result in reduction of public interest in flying saucers, which today evokes a strong psychological reaction. This education could be accomplished by mass media such as television, motion pictures, and popular articles...Such a program should tend to reduce the current gullibility of the public and consequently their susceptibility to clever hostile propaganda. If you can’t debunk it, ignore it.

May 2013 The minutes relating to President Putin’s meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reveal the Russian leader’s extreme outrage over the Obama administration’s continued protection of global seed and plant biogenetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing Bee Apocalypse that the Kremlin warns: …will most certainly lead to world war.

June 6, 2013 The existence of NSA’s clandestine surveillance program is leaked by NSA contractor Edward Snowden and published by The Guardian and The Washington Post. The American public now knows what most Ufologists and Contact Experiencers have known for decades:
They are being surveilled by their own government. The public and leaders of European countries learn they are also being surveilled by NSA.

June 25, 2013 The CIA declassifies Area 51 and finally admits to its existence as well as using unvouchered funding, aka black budget funding for its activities. The map released is nothing more than a simple line drawing map of the State of Nevada and surrounding States with a small square drawn on it outlining where Area 51 is located. The cover story for the base is that is was simply a testing site for the U-2, and OXCART aerial surveillance programs. The press, and therefore the public, are not informed until August 15, 2013. What the general public does not know is the entire story was preempted years earlier due to a FOIA request admitting the base existed.

June 2013 General consensus is finally reached that MJ-12 was a real organization and was in charge of maintaining the UFO cover up. MJ-12 existed and the names on the UFO document that appeared on a film in the mailbox of Jamie Shandera in 1984 were correct. The document itself, original or republished, remains questionable. The latest verification comes from John B. Alexander, Ph.D., Ret. Colonel

July 2013 Dr. Edgar Mitchell speaks to Bloomberg, CNN, and states that UFO Coverups Must End:
Initially I think there was justification in that leadership officials thought people weren’t ready to handle it. But we are well past that now. Frankly, and this is just personal opinion, remember what President Eisenhower said in his final speech:
Beware the military industrial complex. I suspect that’s what we’re talking about. But it’s not just military. It’s a cabal of organizations primarily for a profit motive, We invented aircraft at the beginning of the 20th century.

August 2013 The Hyperloop is proposed by Elon Musk, but will most likely not be built for use in the U.S. Why? The Corporate Military Industrial Complex, now a Breakaway Government won’t make their billions on their worldwide controlling of commodities such as oil, gas, the auto industry and the airline industry. If the Hyperloop looks familiar to some of you, it should:
It is quite similar to the underground tube craft many Contact Experiencers have found themselves inside of when they have been abducted and taken to deep underground military alien bases.

December 4, 2013 Soviet Style MKULTRA is revealed via a paper by Serge Kernbach submitted to Cornell University, an institution that incidentally receives substantial monies in funding from DARPA. A brief overview of the paper follows:
This work briefly surveys unconventional research in Russia from the end of the 19th until the beginning of the 21st centuries in areas related to generation and detection of a high penetrating emission of non biological origin. The overview is based on open scientific and journalistic materials. The unique character of this research and its history, originating from governmental programs of the USSR, is shown. Relations to modern studies on biological effects of weak electromagnetic emission, several areas of bioinformatics and theories of physical vacuum are discussed.

December 11, 2013 John Podesta, President Obama’s Advisor and former President Clinton’s Chief of Staff, advocates for UFO Disclosure.
