Top Ten Alien Encounters
1. Men in Black Oct 15, 2008
Mysterious entities who have approached UFO witnesses. One of the more compelling accounts reportedly occurred in the spring of 2009 at a Sheraton Hotel on the banks of Niagara Falls, New York. Some witnesses have described MIB as very odd looking and sounding, with a pasty white complexion, oversized eyes and no eyebrows, eyelashes or other facial hair. They have been heard speaking with strange accents, odd sounding giggles and using outdated slang. MIB have exhibited confusion over simple items such as pens, utensils and food. This is simply a tactic to make sure whom they speak will not be able to identify them ever again, since they all look the same.
Sheraton Hotel, Niagara Falls, NY Oct 15, 2008
Reports of Men in Black (MIB) first become popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s, though similar sightings have been recorded for centuries, with earlier accounts often associated with demonic or witchcraft beliefs.

2. Alien Code 1908, sep 26
Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos investigates unexplained mysteries from every corner of the world. The evidence shows that many ancient sites, and even modern ones like Roswell, all seem to be associated with legends and reports of someone or something coming down from the sky.

3. Travis Walton Abduction 1975, November 5th
This baffling UFO case began on November 5th, 1975, in northeastern Arizona’s Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. A logging crew of 7 men were working on a government contract, clearing forest. The men loaded into a single pickup truck leaving work for the day. As they started their journey home they saw, not far from the road, a “luminous object, shaped like a flattened disc.”
All of the men agreed that Travis Walton, captivated by the sight, left the truck to get a closer look. While gazing up in awe at the object, suddenly a brilliant, bluish light struck him and threw him to the ground some distance away.
This event caused the other crew members to flee the scene in fear for their lives. After arguing among themselves, they decided to go back and see if they could help Travis. Returning to the scene, they found no trace of the craft, or Travis.
Walton reappeared five days later, confused and scared, with fleeting memories of alien entities, and descriptions of the inside of their craft. He was also subsequently subjected to a number of polygraph examinations. The Travis Walton event would soon become the very first abduction case to be given serious consideration by many credible scientists. His story would force the general public to reevaluate previously close minded opinions on the subject. Credit: ufocasebook
4. Phoenix Lights 1997, March 13
The March 13, 1997, mass UFO sighting in the skies over Phoenix, Arizona, with thousands of witnesses to the event, ongoing UFO sightings in the area, and a hundreds of photos and videos documenting the event, as well as similar sightings before and after that date, some believe the government will never admit that the “unknown crafts” witnessed weren’t of terrestrial origins.
5. White Sands UFO, Lannie Zamos, 1964, April 24
A new phenomenon began to be observed over the southwestern United States in areas where Top Secret nuclear weapon research was being carried out. One area of interest, Los Alamos, New Mexico, Sandia Base near Albuquerque, New Mexico, the White Sands Proving Ground.
The sights consisted of bright green lights moving horizontally through the night sky and then dropping downward slightly and going out. This later became known as the “green fireballs”.

6. Russian UFO Artifacts Jan, 29 1986
Witnesses seen a crash landing not of this work in a hilltop area in a Russian mining town of Dalnegorsk, according to “Russia’s Roswell Incident and Other AMazing UFO Cases From The Former Soviet Union” refugee, Paul Stonehill and Philip Mantle (British UFO expert).
7. Roswell Incident, 1947, July
In mid 1947, a crash of a military Air Force surveillance balloon at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico gave rise to claims alleging the crash was of an extraterrestrial spaceship.
After an initial spike of interest, the military reported that the crash was merely of a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s whenufologists began promulgating a variety of increasingly elaborate conspiracy theories claiming that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed and that the extraterrestrialoccupants had been recovered by the military who then engaged in a cover-up.
In the 1990s the US military published reports disclosing the true nature of the crashed Project Mogul balloon. Nevertheless, the Roswell incident continues to be of interest in popular media, and conspiracy theories surrounding the event persist. Roswell has been called “the world’s most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim”. Provided by Wikipedia.org
8. Solway Firth Spaceman 1964 May 23
This one is one of my favorite mysteries, a photograph of a young girl taken by her father, Jim Templeton on May 23rd, 1964 apparently shows a “space” suited figure (looks like a man) or something similar, popped up in the background of one of the three shots he took. Till this day, Kodak had put out a reward for anyone who could solve this, this has not been solved. Since then, we have the below attempt at making sense of this photograph, you be the judge.
9. The Battle of Los Angeles, 1942, Feb 25
The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as The Great Los Angeles Air Raid, is the name given by contemporary sources to the rumored enemy attack and subsequent anti-aircraft artillery barrage which took place from late 24 February to early 25 February 1942 over Los Angeles, California. The incident occurred less than three months after the United States entered World War II as a result of the Japanese Imperial Navy‘s attack on Pearl Harbor, and one day after the bombardment of Ellwood on 23 February.
Initially, the target of the aerial barrage was thought to be an attacking force from Japan, but speaking at a press conference shortly afterward, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox called the incident a “false alarm.” Newspapers of the time published a number of reports and speculations of a cover-up. Some modern-day UFOlogists have suggested the targets were extraterrestrial spacecraft. When documenting the incident in 1983, the U.S. Office of Air Force History attributed the event to a case of “war nerves” likely triggered by a lost weather balloon and exacerbated by stray flares and shell bursts from adjoining batteries.

10. Bermuda Triangle, 5 bombers first disappear
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. According to the US Navy, the triangle does not exist, and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic Names.Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors. In a 2013 study, the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world’s 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them.
Flight 19 was the designation of five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945 during a United States Navy overwater navigation training flight from Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All 14 airmen on the flight were lost, as were all 13 crew members of a PBM Mariner flying boat assumed by professional investigators to have exploded in mid-air while searching for the flight. Navy investigators could not determine the cause of the loss of Flight 19 but said the airmen may have become disoriented and ditched in rough seas after running out of fuel. Provided by Wikipedia.org
