There was a documentary on TV recently that described a direct correlation between the build-up of nuclear weapons and the number of UFO sightings.
There were a number of interesting sidebars that came out of this two-hour documentary.
First of all, when the nuclear arsenal was built in the
It appears that Air Force personnel went to great lengths to keep the public from finding out most information about UFOs.
Documents obtained by the producer of the documentary through Freedom of Information Act requests, indicated that missile crews from the Minot Air Force Base described strange goings on in the remote, rural areas of
One of them included a crew that saw seven saucer-type objects over the top of a missile site. As the crew watched the UFOs, they hovered and shined intense and highly focused beams at warehouses that either had weapons or weapon systems in them.
In another example, a former commander at Warren AFB said he watched a UFO on radar circle around the missile field in rural
Where this really gets interesting is documents that were smuggled out of
Time and time again since the proliferation of UFO sightings in 1947, people have blamed the Russians for having some sort of magic, if you will, to make us believe that we are being visited from outer space.
It turns out, the Russians were under the same microscope as the
If you go back through the files all the way to the Roswell incident and track it forward, you will see a continued increase of UFO sightings up until about 1972, when they began to taper off rapidly.
Three years ago a number of UFO sightings that had been classified, were placed into the public domain. Almost all of them were sightings that were directly related to an Air Force Base.
The same is true with these more recent Freedom of Information Act requests.
All of the sightings that involved the Minot and Grand Forks Air Force Bases, had another interesting link. There was never any damage done, nobody was ever abducted and nothing was ever removed or stolen.
It led Air Force command to conclude that whoever was operating the objects, including a few that were spotted around nuclear power plants, they were surveilling the
Perhaps the most bizarre report that came out of the FOIA requests was a situation at Warren AFB where the launch systems were activated for no apparent reason.
For 7 minutes, Air Force officials scrambled to stop what would have been a launch on
That same commander who watched the UFO on radar, in hindsight, said he firmly believed that whoever was in the UFOs, they were testing the
At the time, he had no idea Russian facilities were being surveilled, but that very well could have been the answer.
The documentary was based on a book written by Robert Hastings titled, UFOs and Nukes, Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites.
Obviously a book can go into far greater detail than a movie and describes a lot of encounters with Project Blue Book that weren’t in the documentary.
The book is available on Amazon for $34.95.
Additionally, there are a number of news reports about this phenomenon following the release of the book in 2017.
Excuses no longer hold up. But who exactly was responsible?
