The Kelsey Bay, Vancouver Island BC, Canada 1981 UFO Photo

Crop-out of the Kelsey Bay, Vancouver Island BC, Canada Oct-1981 UFO seems to depict a disk with a dome (this crop-out is grainy due to max magnification from 2nd generation negatives - uncropped photo)

Story: During a family vacation, Mrs McRoberts saw "a cloud over a mountaintop, suggestive of a smoking volcano" and snapped a photo of it. She didn't notice the UFO at the time the photo was taken, it was captured by chance. More case details at ufobc, ufoevidence. Higher-resolution versions of the photo: full uncropped, magnified cropout).

APRO, Dr.Harder and Dr.Haines (a retired NASA scientist, who in 2000 established NARCAP - compiled a database of over 3000 UFO sightings by pilots - see documentary "Pilot UFO sightings") took an interest in the photo. An analysis of the Kelsey Bay UFO photo (.PDF) is published in the scientific report of the Sturrock Panel 1997 (.PDF), funded by billionaire Laurance Rockefeller.

Dr.Haines considered the possibility that it was just a small frisbee near the camera, and argued that a frisbee wouldn't fly well if it had a dome on its top -as the Vancouver object apparently has- nor would it show up sharp in the photo due to its quick movement.

Related: This domed disk resembles the object in the William Herrmann, Charleston USA, Apr-1980 UFO photos and possibly the Prince George, Canada Jun-1998 UFO photos. Also the case Pilot's Car Engine Suddenly Stops; Spots 4 UFOs (Discs) Nov-1957 AISS (FOIA).

Reports of very close sightings of discoid UFOs with transparent domes, with "human-looking" UFO-occupants, include Mrs.Roestenberg, age 29 at the time, and her two sons over her home near Ranton, Staffordshire, England in Oct-1954 - sketch (ref: various video interviews, incl. one in Arthur C Clarke's "Mysterious World UFOs"). Extract from BBC's "Out of this world" 1977 (duration 6min):



Below: Another similar case near Cowichan Hospital, again in Vancouver Island BC Canada on New Year's Eve 1-Jan-1970. More: ufoevidence, ufobc.

LAC CHAUVET, France 1952 UFO Photo 1

Mr Fregnale, Auvergne, Lac Chauvet, France 1952 UFO Photos (2 of a total of 4) analyzed by GEPAN -later SEPRA- (official UFO study project in France) and considered genuine.

Case file and photos: Fregnale, Lac Chauvet - Auvergne France, 1952

LAC CHAUVET, France 1952: Mr. Fregnale electrical engineer of Le Puy, was hiking in the area of Bessem Friday in search for geological study, near Lake Chauvet, when he saw a kind of disc that crossed the sky from West to East. He took 4 photos.
"I had the time to take four shots very quickly. I saw the machine approximately during 50 seconds and after having taken the photographs I observed the craft with binoculars. According to my observations and calculations I made afterwards, if the saucer were at 3.000 meters it was going at approximately 300 meters per second. If it were at 8.000 meters its speed was larger obvioulsy and could reach 800 meters per second. I heard absolutely no noise.

"The craft - as often told - had the shape of an oval saucer. Below and in the center it seemed that there is a light bulge, but I am not certain. Around the circular part, a brilliant circle appeared. I suppose that above the apparatus, a rotor, or some other gyroscopic system, rotated very quickly, which would explain the reflection that one very clearly sees on the photographs that I took." -- Translated extract from report in French newspaper "Le Meridional", 1952


The latest study of the 1952 negatives was published by Dr. Guerin in 1994:
"... We have demonstrated that the photographs showed a disk-shaped object located at a large distance in the sky and, thus, having large dimensions ... The disk was flying along a straight and horizontal trajectory, keeping an inclination to the horizontal plane, about the axis trajectory and at an angle which remained between about 5 degrees and 12 degrees. The eccentric spot remained aligned along this axis during the observation, which makes unlikely the possibility of forgery by means of a model hung at the end of a wire or thrown into the air" -- SSE Vol.8, Num.4, Art.1 1994 "A Scientific Analysis of Four Photographs of a Flying Disk Near Lac Chauvet (France)" by Pierre Guerin, Institut d'Astrophysique, Paris, France

Summary: A selection of popular UFO books and documents. Privately produced briefing documents aiming to familiarize high government officials with the UFO evidence e.g. French COMETA Report, Rockefeller UFO Briefing Document, The UFO Enigma - Congressional Research Report, NICAP/R.H.Hall The UFO Evidence. Various declassified government UFO files (Brazil, Canada, France, Denmark, Russia, UK, USA) Note: Titles in bold are highly recommended reading.

Freely downloadable material (either public domain or copyright has expired).

Interesting but non-essential reading material of questionable value, e.g. Aztec crash book by Scully, MJ12 docs Official government positions (if any at all) Spain introduced limited releases of information during the 1970s, with the release of pictures on UFOs watching military flight operations over the Grand Canaries. Limited releases were also made by the Brazilian government (2004) revealing a flotilla of unknown space objects that passed over their airspace and industrial facilities in southern Brazil in 1986. In addition, Belgium, Russia and the United Kingdom have also made recent limited releases of declassified official documents. Freely downloadable from Edonkey2000 P2P network (if you're a total newbie, use the free Emule sw client -- you need to have P2P installed, as these are NOT http links) UFO books for buying
