In UFOJane's latest YouTube video, the real Project Blue Book (that the History Channel new show is based on) and wonders if it was ever shut down, as the government would have us believe.
An amazing and adorable account of a large flying saucer following a car and seeming to even weild control over it, at least when not blocked by trees, has been uploaded to YouTube. In the video below, you can listen to an interview with an 8-year-old child witness of the UFO, as well as see a drawing that he made of the UFO at the time. Although it is clear the child has discussed the event before this interview, his testimony seems credible. The UFO was also described as having blinking lights and a white beam of light shining down. Share your thoughts on this fascinating UFO case file in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and if you also saw something like this in the early 70s as well, report your sighting! The video was uploaded by the witness' uncle:
The History Channel's hotly-anticipated series, "Project Blue Book," premiered this week to an impressive 3.1 million viewers (making it one of the network's top premiers ever) and a pretty positive, if not cool reception online. Some viewers became instant fans, while others were underwhelmed or even took issue with the series being a work of fiction, versus a documentary. However, most the reviews and comments online were hopeful about the next episode.
FBI.gov currently houses a number of intriguing UFO files (many formerly top-secret) that reveal the US Air Force's nonfiction interest and investigations into the UFO phenomenon. Project Blue Book was one of these investigative groups, and in fact, it was preceded by the top-secret Project Sign and Project Grudge. As recently as December 2017, the New York Times revealed that the Pentagon followed in the footsteps of Project Blue Book, and still considers UFOs to be real, and a potentially real, extraterrestrial threat.
The History Channel series focuses on the cases from the 50s and 60s that Project Blue Book founder, and so-called "father of ufology" J. Allen Hynek would have been close to, like the "Lubbock Lights," but reportedly has plenty of fantasy mixed in. Hynek is the main character in the show, and he's played by Aidan Glenn, famous for playing "Littlefinger" in "Game of Thrones." As with any good scifi drama, the UFO and alien-pursuing Hynek needs a skeptical foil. Enter Captain Michael Quinn, played by Michael Malarkey from "The Vampire Diaries."

January 4th, 2019 Update: TexasUFOs has received incredible, new witness testimony that corroborates this article (scroll down to read the original one). According to a witness who would like to be known as "2005," dozens of bright silver flying saucers were seen flying over Waco, Texas (specifically at the address of 2005 South 7th Street) on May 16th, 1954, just a few months before the event that I featured on this site more than a year ago:
Wow playing in the backyard of my family's home I looked up and observe over 30 flying saucers flying in a V shape formation. This was not the first time that I and other kids in the neighborhood so these UFOs it was very common especially late at night to see them streaking across the night sky. Now that I'm older I think they were observing the goings-on James Connally Air Force Base. I never was afraid because they didn't seem to pose a threat just curious I believe. There was a time in the fifties an early sixties when people set out in their yards escape the Heat and if you look up you can see all kind of strange lights in the sky.
A really phenomenal and detailed account of 30+ flying saucers flying in formation over the James Connally Air Force Base (now, a public use airport) in Waco, Texas in 1954 has just now surfaced on MUFON (case 85062). The witness wanted to take a picture of the event, but as he was training to become a fighter pilot at the time, he was not able to break the line and grab a camera. Although I could not find any photos or videos of this sighting, apparently the Air Force Base was able to confirm that the UFOs were hovering at 100,000 feet and were extremely large, about 100-feet in diameter. Read the testimony:
Saw thirty three 100 foot diameter flying saucers in three formations together
I was able to find two articles from the Waco Tribune from the same year (January 1954 issue) that document a local's sighting of a flying saucer in November from the year prior, and curiously enough, a news story about flying saucer-detecting cameras being installed at "60 control towers and 15 air defense sites," which matches up nicely to the witness claims that the base "had to keep detailed record of the saucers:"
What do you think of this incredible testimony? During the 1940s and 50s, there were many documented flying saucer and UFO sightings, from Roswell to the White House UFO incident; perhaps this sighting should have joined that well-known documentation.
Or could this testimony simply be a hoax, or even an overreaction to something a bit more mundane? Though this seems unlikely, as the witness wrote into MUFON anonymously and with absolutely no fanfare... share your ideas on this story in the comments below, and/or join the discussion over on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
If you remember this mass UFO sighting in Waco from the 1950s, or remember hearing about it, please help with this case and report your experience.
UFOs Seen Around Same Time As Strange Blue Light (Caused by Power Plant Explosion) Appeared Over Queens
A mysterious blue light blanketed Queens, New York yesterday evening, and it sparked fears of an alien invasion, so much so that the local NYPD even tweeted that there was "no evidence of extraterrestrial activity" when explaining that it was actually a power plant explosion that caused the incredible light show.
That said, there were two UFO sightings that occurred in the same location and around the same time frame, according to videos uploaded to YouTube:
Despite the vast blue glow that Queens residents witnessed, and the loud bangs that also were reportedly heard during the event, there was apparently only a small fire caused by the explosion and it was put out before any firetrucks even had a chance to arrive.
Some may find the UFO sightings, and the lack of any firefighters on the scene, a little suspicious. Others may just say it's all one big coincidence. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
