The Salamanca Humanoids | U.S. Intelligence Tracks Close Encounter of the Third Kind in 1974
Oct 24, 2020
Five years after the closing of Project Blue Book, U.S. intelligence was still paying attention to UFOs. Declassified files from 1974 show something even stranger — monitoring of a Close Encounter of the Third Kind, a case involving 6 1/2 foot tall humanoid occupants of disc-shaped craft.
The case occurred in Western Spain, in the province of Salamanca. A Defense Intelligence Agency analyst compiled an account of this and other strange sightings from that year, and sent them to European Command and other “parties interested.”
The witness, Maxi Iglesias, claims U.S. officials visited the site to analyze trace evidence left behind, telling him they were from “NASA.” For years, this was laughed off, but we now know officials really were monitoring the case.

Great stuff. I am not remembering this case. Or, indeed any of the others mentioned.
The Pentagon just declassified three UFO videos taken by Navy Pilots. The various footage shows Unidentified objects flying at extremely high speeds through the Earth’s atmosphere.
The Navy videos were first released between December 2017 and March 2018 by To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, a company co-founded by former Blink-182 musician Tom DeLonge that says it studies information about unidentified aerial phenomena. (LINK to original post)
Luis Elizondo, the former head of the classified program, told CNN in 2017 that he personally believes “there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.”
He said: “These aircraft — we’ll call them aircraft — are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.”
The Navy previously acknowledged the veracity of the videos in September of last year. They are officially releasing them now, “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos,” according to Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough.
An excellent turn of events this was. Yup.
Well, maybe… I am not 100% sold on this topic, but, it is a possibility, certainly.

This is pretty cool. But, why, oh why do people stop filming before the incident ends? That is a troubling and altogether too common occurence. I do not understand it. Via ATS.
But this, if real, is a nice capture.

Not a bad shot, if real. Hard to get footage of these things. Got a nice shot of the little power thing in the center. Tried brightness and contrast to bring out more details, but it didn’t work. Anyway.

David Fravor: UFOs, Aliens, Fighter Jets, and Aerospace Engineering | Lex Fridman Podcast #122
Sep 8, 2020
David Fravor is a navy pilot of 18 years and a primary witness in one of the most credible UFO sightings in history.
PODCAST INFO: Podcast website: lexfridman.com/podcast
An excellent interview. Lots of subjects covered.
“Here’s an article with Pilot Commander David Fravor telling you what he saw.” Link to post
Commander David Fravor witnessed the Tic Tac-shaped object perform extraordinary aerial maneuvers that no known human technology is capable of in November 2004. The former US Navy pilot said the UFO was unlike anything else he ever encountered.
Fravor recounted the perplexing encounter in a podcast interview with Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientist Lex Fridman.
“This is not like, ‘we saw it and it was gone’, or ‘I saw lights in the sky and it’s gone’ – we watched this thing on a crystal clear day with four trained observers,” Fravor recalled.
The ex-pilot said that any time he tried to get close to the object it rapidly accelerated and was gone in less than a second. “I remember telling the guy in my back seat, ‘Dude, I dunno about you but I’m pretty weirded out.’”
After landing, Fravor mentioned the UFO to a colleague, Chad Underwood, who successfully located the unidentified phenomena only for it to jam his radar. “He’s telling the radar, ‘Stare down the line of sight, whatever is there I want you to grab it and build a trace file on it,’ which will tell you where it is, how fast it is and the direction that it’s going,” Fravor explained to Fridman.
“The radar is smart enough that when the signal comes back if it’s been messed with, it will tell you – it will give you indications that it’s being jammed …. It’s being jammed into about every mode you can see … You can tell it’s being jammed,” he added.
The awesomeness knows no bounds.
ETA Hey, here’s the part everyone is curious about…

Glowing Purple UFO Flies Over Houses in Scotland
Mar 29, 2020
Location: Greenock, Scotland
Time of day: 8pm approx.
Details: This glowing, slow-moving object was one of multiple similar objects sighted passing over a residential area adjacent to the river Clyde and approximately 3 km from Her Majesty’s Naval Base, Clyde (AKA Faslane). The spotter/cameraman is a resident who recorded the objects from his window using a handheld video camera (the window faces in the general direction of Faslane base). No sound potentially originating from this object is audible in the video, and the spotter has indicated that all of the objects were silent. The light emitted by the object is very bright (from 01:30 minutes the planet Venus is visible on the left for comparison) and purplish in colour. The object is lost sight of as it disappears from view behind a building.
Reasons for inclusion: Silent. Lights differ from those of conventional aircraft. Proximity to observer. Proximity to a large body of water and a facility containing nuclear armaments. Quality of footage.
Well, gol dang it, this capture is pretty neat, too!
Photograph of the supposed Westall UFO encounter where more than 200 students and teachers at two Victorian state schools allegedly witnessed an unexplained flying object which descended into a nearby open wild grass field. Dated 1966
This is an aircraft recon camera shot by Marshal pilot Giancarlo Cecconi, while he was serving with the Italian Air Force.
I wrote about it back in the hey day of WATT… The Remarkable Cecconi UFO Case: Cover Up Italian Style.
There will always be a soft spot in in my heart for flying saucers. Especially the rectangular and square ones.
My first UFO sighting, at ten years old, is what got me into the realm of the unexplained.
So, no matter how silly the field of ufology might get, I know something is hanging out with us.
Ta da, the logo of the new United States Space Force… it’s more than a bit Star Trekkie; and the motto of the new Force is – “Semper Supra” (Always Above)…
which is is somewhat similar to the National Reconnaissance Office’s motto “Supra Et Ultra” (Above & Beyond).
Airplane passenger records an impressive elongated UFO during a flight from Phoenix to Portland
Jun 18, 2020
The images in this video, which were shot by a commercial jet passenger during a flight from Phoenix to Portland in March 2019 show a strange entity or elongated and dark object moving alongside to the aircraft.
I imagine it is just another plane. The Utubians feel the same way.
This is really neat looking.

An interesting video came in this afternoon.
Im posting a link to it because I want some input from you all.
This object apparently flew over the city of Toronto in a minute and a half – with multiple witnesses in differing parts of the city.
Some of you know my full time job involves Drones, so I’m very familiar with how they fly, their differing capabilities between a consumer level drone vs an industrial level drone.
All consumer and industrial level Drones need to be equipped with always-on red lights, and blinking or off green lights.
This object has neither.
I’m going to provide some information to assist you guys with taking an educated guess,
however as always, some stuff needs to be vague or left out to ensure the witnesses identities are not made public.
witness #3 was on the other side of the city. They did not get anything on video, but their recollection of events matched the original witnesses.
The sighting took place on May 26,2020 At 20:51 hrs.
The video is genuine – there are no signs of manipulation.
The witness who submitted the video is very credible and holds a masters degree while working in a high level position.
They have no reason to make a false claim.
The Witness estimated the object being 10-15 ft long, flying against the wind at approximately 200 meters AGL.
There’s Nothing on Flightradar24.
No NOTAMs issued for a drone flight over the city.
A top of the line consumer level drone has up to 8 km range.
However, flying at that distance, a drone pilot is going to need video transmission to ensure they get their $3000 investment back.
A lot of factors interfere with drone video transmission – buildings, weather and other electronics broadcasting on the same 2.4 or 5Ghz.
The object flew a straight trajectory until it disappeared.
The witness first noticed the object out over the city int he distance.
They were able to run into the apartment and grab their camera, however they left the tripod in the house because they were in a hurry to get something on video before it disappeared.
Anyway, take a look at the video, and throw out some ideas.
Any questions, I’ll try to answer the best I can.
Screen shot of object
I would say that it is definitely more L-shaped than triangular but the angles are indeed triangular in general, so, yeah, okay.
Yeah, another stolen post but a nice one, at least.

Gimbal UFO – What it really looks like
Jul 7, 2019
Dear viewer, Welcome to my detailed video – and image enhancement of the famous Gimbal UFO. Do not expect from me that I am going to describe the original video or the HUD display as has been done already. No I will only focus on showing you what this craft (UFO) really looks like. For the full story, mission details and more background information on the Gimbal UFO: Detailed info: https://coi.tothestarsacademy.com/gim… Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf1uL…
What I find interesting is why they released the video but not telling you what it looks like. I am doing this work for more than 25 years. It really surprises me that they have not released more details. Wouldn’t you say that by now they must know what they are up against?
It is pretty diffult to enhance any details from this video as the craft is located right in the centre of an overbright and high contrast region.
Part of the solution to make the craft visible I found in applying a 4 times iteration of CLAHE.
What is CLAHE? CLAHE stands for Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization.
This sounds complicated but it is in fact rather simple to explain. When you would use a Histogram Equalization (HE) filter on a video or photo, the software improves the background contrast of an entire photo. As long as you use a photo or video with very poor (dim) lighting conditions and one that does not have any (over)bright areas the filter does a perfect job. In the best cases you can see a lot more details in a dark photo.
The HE filter however completely fails when there is one or more areas of high brightness in the photo. When that is the case after applying HE the entire photo has become overbright and lots of details are lost. The reason for this is that HE works global (entire image) and therefore
the filter is not limited to a particular section of the image. Therefore HE does not work on the Gimbal video.
If we do not want the whole image to become overbright, Adaptive Histogram Equalization (AHE) is to be used instead.
In principle AHE works the same way as HE except that there is no global processing. With AHE the image is divided in smaller squares (tiles). In AHE mode each of these squares is histogram equalized separately and as the histogram is limited to a small section there is no overbrightness or trans border effect.
Unfortunately using the AHE filter also can have a negative effect when the image contains (too) much noise as its noise will also be amplified. To get rid of this noise another filter is used: Contrast Limitation (CL). By setting a threshold, the noise (pixels) is equalized and so the image stays (relatively) clean.
By applying CLAHE to an image, we see another side effect: small lines (squares). To fade these lines often a global bilinear interpolation filter is used.
So now you know what CLAHE is and its benefits over Histogram Equalization.
I have told you that PART of the solution was CLAHE. That is true. This video is recorded in the Infrared spectrum so I first had to recover the original colours using an IR to VIS(ual) / Ul(tra)V(iolet) spectrum filter. Having recovered (most of) the natural colours the next steps where basic processing; Stacking frames, curve filter, deblur, refocus, micro contrast enhancement for details and finally a tone mapper.
So what will you see in the final result?
1. The Gimbal UFO is neither saucer shape nor does it resamble a (real) triangle.
2. The UFO appears to have a minimum of three visible and perhaps more indiscernible propulsion systems.
3. Does it stop here? For now YES but I intend to show you every single part of this UFO so I am already working on a combination of new (mostly experimental) enhancement methods.
To be continued …
Enjoy this video that shows the Gimbal UFO as it really is. Did you ever imagine that it looked like ….
Part two will (hopefully) follow soon revealing alot more details.

Dear viewer, WAPTEK2 and other Youtubers question the genuineness of the Gimbal video material. They claim that it is CGI and that this was already proven on Above Top Secret and other forums. Well, anyone knows how I nowadays think about ATS. I was a member once, until I discovered what ATS really stands for. I can neither confirm nor deny that there indeed might be manipulated footage on the internet. Nowadays very clever CGI experts could replicate videos from top to bottom and add, remove or replace parts of a video almost unnoticed. Having said that: please note that in 2004 and even today with current known algorithms used to up- and downscale it is totally impossible to create a craft in CGI in a bigger size, compress it to 815 x 815 pixels (you will lose a lot of valuable data) and when you upscale the video (increase resolution through e.g. interpolation) retrieve not only very detailed (original) information but also the (original) colours.. This is physically not possible: period! For your information: The GIMBAL video was officially released by the Pentagon together with the 2004 FLIR1 video. These two videos are unrelated. The Gimbal UFO was filmed at the East Coast of the United States and at a till this day unknown date and the 2004 FLIR1 video at the West Coast. If there is any mentioning of CGI created videos back in 2004 it has been done for a specific reason. For my research I never use video material from the internet. My only sources are the operator (original film) or an official channel. The Gimbal UFO video used for the analysis comes from an official, therefore reliable und trustworthy source.
I dunno. This is the guy who did the vid on the one down under I posted about. The second vid of which had me leery. This one less so, but… I dunno about this guy.
This is a few years old now but some may not know about it.
These cities were vast and they all interconnected with roads. One of my favorite things about it is the recent idea that the immense Amazon rainforest itself is the result of the overgrowth of these people’s farms and gardens after their civilization collapsed. The idea came from the fact that the majority of flora in the Amazon are fruit-bearing. I love that…
UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley NewYork USA

UFO Videos From The Hudson Valley New York.
Oh dear. LOL, even.
I remember this guy. He had a lady partner in crime most of the time… gosh, Crystal something, I think. I had one of her books! Bought it from her in person at one of Mr. White’s UFO Cons somewhere north of New Haven, CT. I remember thinking that they were a bit out there. Well, more than a bit. And, hey, I was a bit credulous back then, I admit, so that might give you an idea of how out there I thought they were. I was in my late 20s, early 30s. We were all a bit woo, eh. But, really! Sigh.
Ah, well. The sightings at Pine Bush, NY, where these videos were probably taken, were quite numerous and some of them were probably anomalous happenings.
Or military from Stewart AFB, just a stone’s throw away.
Note that these three videos are most definitely not of the notorious Hudson Valley UFO, regardless of the location being in the Hudson Valley.
These are planes. At just before the 9 min mark it’s a C5 Galaxy, from or going to Stewart. The actual Hudson Valley sightings were quite awesome and of an enormous boomerang shaped thing moving low and slow. With dozens of people stopping on the highway to watch them.
Those were good times. Sightings worldwide were plentiful and excitingly bizarre. We don’t get those any more. It’s sad, really.
Maybe they’ll return one day, he said, longingly.
I will begin posting what I consider some of the best Blue Book cases. Out of the 12,000+ cases there are a few hundred that have sufficient information and good quality witnesses that I would categorize them as excellent cases.
The very first case is of course the Kenneth Arnold case of June 24, 1947. This case is well known and you can find plenty of well written articles that analyze this sighting. Something that might interest you is an interview with him from long ago.
Well, now, this is very cool to listen to the real story, right from the horse’s mouth.

Fleet of mysterious lights appear above sea near North Carolina filmed from a ferry
William Guy was on a ferry traveling from Ocracoke Village to Swan Quarters North Carolina on September 18, 2019 when he noticed a fleet of strange bright lights in the sky on which he started to record the strange event.
William said that that there were about 25 people on the ferry with him that have seen it too and they also recorded the fleet of lights and none has ever seen it before.
We may assume that these lights are not flares since no source can be found in the entire area that may have fired flares.
What could these lights have been?
There were 25 people with him, he says. Why aren’t there any other videos of these lights?
