This case is not one particularly well known in the West.
It occurred in the remote region of Northern India on September 27th 2004. Some 40 miles from the nearest inhabited town of Kaksar and around 15,000 ft above sea level.
A team of glaciologists/geologists from Space Applications Centre (SAC), were on an expedition to study the Samundri Tapu glacier in Himachal Pradesh. When at around 6.45 a.m., they spotted a bizarre object.
What appeared to be a white 3 to 4ft. high robot was hovering just above ground level. The head was cylindrical with two “balloon type” attachments, a body, hands and legs. The object looked like it was moving towards the group until it was approximately 50-60 yards away when it seemed aware of the scientists and stopped for a few seconds. It then retreated and reversed back up the hillside. Noiselessly receding into a tiny white dot in the sky.
Dr Anil Kulkarni the senior SAC scientist said the most striking thing about the object was its movement. “It manoeuvred itself in what appeared to be finely-controlled motion. Free-floating balloons don’t do that. It appeared to have the ability to manoeuvre itself around small boulders, elevations and depressions on the ridge”.
A digital photo of the object was released in the Indian Media.
Theories ranged between a UFO, a new Chinese spy drone from just over the border, to a cluster of balloons. But after the initial media reports public discussion faded rapidly.
Then in 2012, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) and Indian Army reported seeing over 100 UFOs in the Ladakh area north of Sama Tapu. They included sightings of yellowish spheres from the Chinese side of the Indian border crossing the sky for hours before vanishing. A ground based radar unit and spectrum analyser were deployed, but unable to detect anything when the objects passed.
The Indian Astronomical Observatory, National Technical Research Organization and Defence Research Development Organization were all called in to investigate. None of them were able to solve the mystery of these UFOs. Although, officials refused to publicly entertain the idea that this was extra-terrestrial technology.
Astrophysicist Jayant Narlikar declared in India Today “There is no evidence of UFOS being of extra-terrestrial origin” and intelligence officials, believed the sightings might be a crude psychological operation by the Chinese.
Sunil Dhar, who was part of the 2004 expedition, claimed a more intensive study was required, saying. “Left unexplained, the Ladakh sightings risk slipping into the crack between fact and science fiction….”
Perhaps coincidentally, in April of 2019, Lue Elizondo wrote a letter to the Chief Justice of India. Warning of the danger of not taking UAP seriously and highlighting the ongoing tensions between India and its neighbour Pakistan.
Well, this is a bit different…
