2018 is here and with that comes some fun reflection on all the UFO sightings and alien-related news from the past year. 2017 proved to be one of the most fruitful ever for UFO headlines, as you can see with this list. Scroll down to find out with Top 10 UFO and Alien News Stories from 2017 that got the most clicks on TexasUFOs.com:
10. Is Former FBI Director James Comey an Alien?
Former FBI director James Comey spoke some strange words while being interviewed by John McCain back in June of 2017, words that would trigger an Internet storm of rumors that Comey was not human, but instead an alien! Comey stated in a rather robotic way that he "had a lot of conversations with humans over the years." What makes this story all the more intriguing is that Comey used to be the vice president of Lockheed Martin, which has been part of UFO investigations before, and in 2014 when Comey worked under Obama, the Iranian news and even NPR reported on a rumor that Comey was a "Tall White Alien."
9. The Black Triangle UFO Sightings Continue
Dark, silent and sometimes hovering an even transparent triangle crafts have been spotted regularly since 2014, according to exclusive reports sent to TexasUFOs.com as well as reports sent into MUFON and local media outlets, and shared online through social media. Many theorize that these ships are top-secret military craft similar to the TR3B black triangles, which first started making appearances in the 1990s, while others believe these crafts are a part of UFO and alien disclosure and may indeed be extraterrestrial in origin.
8. Large Fireball Falls Over the US, Causes Tweet Storm
On the afternoon of October 8th, 2017, a very large fireball was seen crashing down in the daytime sky over the Northeast US. Hundreds of reports were sent into AMSMeteors.org and even into UFO news outlets like TexasUFOs. Even popular paranormal investigator Amy Bruni tweeted about the spectacular sky event. Many believe that meteors are getting larger and more frequent and may be a sign of earth changes to come.
7. UFO Zooms by Donald Trump's Plane on Inauguration Day
On January 20th, 2017, the day of President Trump's controversial inauguration, a UFO was caught on video zooming past Trump's private plane. Some speculate the object could simply be a bug or a bird, but many believe it was a true UFO that follows the pattern of other well-documented UFOs of showing up at historic events.
6. UFO Sighting and Possible Visit by Alien and Men in Black in Lubbock, Texas
A sighting of a blue-green beam of light followed by a possible alien abduction and even visit by a strange, unmarked black car (commonly reported by people who are visited by the "Men in Black") in July 2017 was reported to MUFON. As with other close encounters, the alien was described as being gray and telepathic.
5. Gray Aliens Invade Home in San Antonio, Texas
A terrifying encounter of multiple gray aliens creeping around a home in San Antonio, Texas in September 2017 was reported to MUFON. The witness also heard "static noises" and experienced symptoms of sleep paralysis common with alien abductions, going back as far as the "Roswell era" in the 50s.
4. Attempted Alien Abduction in Paris, Texas
Although alien abduction reports are common, they rarely ever come with tangible evidence, as victims seem to experience these sometimes scary and sometimes comforting ET encounters in a dreamlike state. The case in Paris, Texas from December 2017 was no exception, with the witness reporting a visit from a demonic male entity while they slept.
3. New York Times Reveals: US Government Investigate UFOs and Believes They Are Alien
The recent New York Times article that reported on the Pentagon's modern-day UFO research program, and the incredible beliefs held internally by many US government officials that aliens are visiting, was a sign for many that UFO and Alien Disclosure is finally here. While many in the public are still skeptical about UFO research, the US government has now officially admitted to the current presence of unidentified flying objects in our atmosphere, making for quite the historic moment.
2. Alien Body Discovered in Peru
A bizarre mummy of a three-fingered "humanoid" was discovered in Nazca, Peru and when the announcement was made by GAIA in June 2017, it caught the attention of the mainstream media. Many proclaimed the body to be a hoax or human in origin, but according to many sources, the body is still being investigated and early DNA testing may reveal it to be extraterrestrial.
1. UFO Crashes in San Antonio, Texas
On April 29th, 2017, I received a ton of reports of a fireball crashing down in San Antonio. One witness even said it looked like a "bomb!" Local media coverage was virtually absent, however I was able to get in touch with some meteorology and aviation experts who "debunked" the UFO as a jet with a contrail. The people who saw the event with their naked eye, however, would strongly disagree with that explanation.
