Bigger than Roswell? Top secret CIA files unearth hidden UFO sightings
The declassified documents detail a catalogue of mysterious encounters with flying saucers and aliens.
And if they’re to be believed, the accounts are more incredible than the supposed alien crash at Roswell.
Next to them was a large object “like a huge frying pan” which – when Oskar’s daughter called out to him – they climbed into.
“The object rose to a horizontal position,” he said, “turned toward a neighbouring town, and then disappeared over the heights and forests.”
“I found a circular opening in the ground and it was quite evident that it was freshly dug.”
The file notes how many others living in the same area later related to seeing a comet-like object at the time.
Commander Pierre, who flew after them from an airfield in Elisabethville – today called Lubumbashi, sketched them.
And the airman – who is described as a “dependable officer” – predicted their speed to be approximately 900mph.
Further sightings from different witnesses the following month describe similar encounters over Algiers in Tunisia, and Meknes, Taourirt and Casblanca in Morocco.
“And none of them have ever resulted in anything beyond the original account.”
“No evidence, no follow-up, in more than 60 years,” he added. “No clear photos have turned up, and no artifacts.”
Mr Sheaffer, author of Bad UFOs, added “We understand much more clearly than we did 60 years ago what is wrong with uncritically accepting human recollections as being accurate.”
But what do you think? Perhaps we’ll never know. Or perhaps the truth is out there.
