Happy Sunday TWiUPians this week we have a nice long documentary.  Coming in at just over 3 hours we have quite the excuse to kick back and enjoy a nice long afternoon or morning in David Serada’s Evidence the Case for NASA UFO’s.

Evidence, the Case for NASA UFOs, is a 3 hour film about a 6-year scientific study David Sereda conducted at NASA and into the scientific community about UFOs that were appearing on NASA Space Shuttle Missions throughout the 1990s. Sereda presents this NASA footage and his remarkable discoveries in this two part series. He shows proof of intelligent craft through the process of elimination of other plausible phenomena; fundamental principles of faster than light technology and corroborating evidence found on the disc shaped objects; links to the supposed spacecraft and an identifiable star system. Starring David Sereda and featuring television and film celebrity Dan Akroyd

Namaste TWiUPians isn’t that an interesting little nugget.  According to MUFON the Mutual UFO Network the largest private UFO tracking organization in the world more people are reporting UFOs during the Obama Administration.  MUFON has a very cool reporting system where you can leave your written impressions, upload any videos or photographs captured, and it has a “tracker” that displays the reports obtained in real time.

"Over the past year, we've been averaging 500 sighting reports a month, compared to about 300 three years ago [67 percent]," MUFON international director Clifford Clift said.

"And I get one or two production companies contacting me every week, wanting to do stories on UFOs."

I haven’t taken the time to find out if UFO sightings increase in Democratic administrations, but I don’t know.  I seem to recall the President making some pointy UFO jokes at Donald Trump.  Come to think of it he liked making an I’m from Krypton and my father is actually Jor-El joke before too.

I will never hide the truth because it’s uncomfortable. I will deal with Congress and the courts as co-equal branches of government. I will tell the American people what I know and don’t know, and when I release something publicly or keep something secret, I will tell you why.  President Barack Obama, National Archives, May 21, 2009

Hey want to see me criticize the President?  You know you want to.  Release the UFO files Mr. President and the next time a citizen asks your representative a question about the subject make sure he has a real answer outside of I don’t know and some vague promise of transparency.  

Let’s take the jump on this post but don’t come down on it, that could be painful.

Howdy gang and welcome to a drip dry edition of Sunday at the Movies.

Now, a former Air Force general, a retired Air Force colonel, a former FAA executive, and other credible witnesses are stepping forward to reveal something that nobody would believe: first-hand encounters with UFOs.

They'll tell their stories in SECRET ACCESS: UFOs ON THE RECORD, a two-hour special premiering Thursday, August 25 at 8 p.m. ET on HISTORY.

The film features in-depth accounts by people who are willing to risk their jobs and reputations to speak out about their extraordinary experiences, such as former Arizona Governor Fife Symington III; Nick Pope, former head of the British Defense Ministry's UFO Investigative Unit, and others.

Commentary is provided by investigative journalist Leslie Kean, author of the NY Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record, who spent ten years studying the UFO phenomenon and bringing together high level sources from around the world.

This video is a nice compilation of some of the best known and documented cases, but there’s nothing new to a TWiUPian.  It was well put together and entertaining, and it had a bit of pre sell in the media that was interesting.

Howdy TWiUPians and welcome to your weekly out of this world round up.  I have several stories I want to talk about this week, so strap into your command module and let’s lift off.

The most interesting batch of sightings in the past week comes from the lone star state and old Laredo.  Now for those of you familiar with UFO history you’ll remember that Laredo was famous for a chase and crash report back in the late 40’s

The Laredo, Texas UFO Crash is a case in which at least two U.S. military aircraft allegedly chased a 90-foot-diameter (27 m) silver disc-shaped unidentified flying object (UFO) across Texas before watching the object crash approximately 30 miles (48 km) south-southwest of Laredo, Texas on July 7, 1948. U.S. servicemen were reportedly dispatched from a nearby military base to cordon off the UFO crash site until a special U.S. retrieval team arrived to examine the wreckage and carry it away to a military base in San Antonio, Texas. Supposedly, the badly burned body of a non-human entity was recovered from the crash site.[1]

Wiki link

This video shot a Pro 8 News viewer allegedly shows a light some say is coming from a UFO.
The light that seems like an ordinary star shone brightly over Laredo around four Tuesday morning.
Its the second night in a row its been spotted.
Witnesses took to the Pro 8 News facebook page posting details of what they saw.
One person said the light seemed to stay in one spot.
Another said he and his wife saw it between two and four a.m.
It was a bright white light and turned to two, then back to one.
Witnesses say it was flying around the south Laredo area, then flew back up to central Laredo towards loop twenty and then back around and down highway 83 before it disappeared.

Howdy again TWiUPians.  Sunday Sunday Sunday, and we have a great show cued up for you today.  Today we have 1966’s UFO Friend Foe or Fantasy.  This is an excellent example of how the media treated and continues to treat UFO Phenomenon, and if you happened to miss last weeks big edition I had to put out on Wednesday instead of Thursday, you’d have seen an MOD official confess to and apologize for employing the purposeful tactic of using the twin brothers of disinformation; ridicule and fear.  Take note of Project Blue Book’s Dr. J. Allen Hyneck in the presentation discuss, “swamp gas”  and remember that he had about the same confessions after leaving the government as the Ministry of Defence in England’s Nick Pople.

HOT UFO NEWS:  China had to shut down another airport over UFOs

Last year there were  some 8 instances from June through Ocotober of UFO’s being spotted over Chinese airports.  3 times they were required to close the airports, and on the 17th of August they had to shut down another one, this time Jiangbei airport.

Here is a report on our media of one of the shut downs in June of 2010.

This is a Chinese media report of the incident on August 17th.

Roughly translated description via Google:

"Chongqing Airport pass down UFO landing flights have changed the day before yesterday (17) in mainland China microblogging crazy reproduced a message: Chongqing Airport UFO landing strip there. The news is circulating on the Internet "because of UFO visit in Chongqing over, for safety reasons, the airport will only be allowed to take off are not allowed to land, a number of flights can only be changed to a nearby airport." Until 2:00 pm the day before yesterday, an unidentified object drifting away channel, the flight returned to normal movements."

From the video's description box

Now those hardcore TWiUPians will remember we did an entry way back at the beginning of the series UFO’s over Japan where we discussed the recent sightings over New York on October 13th 2010.  New Yorks airports closed that day as well, but instead of “swamp gas” it was natural gas.  

Enjoy the show over the fold.

Howdy TWiUPians this was one of those weeks when I almost put out a special edition so juicy was this news. Since I can't sit with the diary tomorrow what the heck I couldn't wait till Friday.   England released another batch of files from their UFO cache.  These 34 files will be free for the downloading for the time being, so if you’re interested and have the space on the old hard drive here is the link British National Archives UFO link

The proof of UFOs or ET existence is not in there.  There are some very interesting accounts of sightings that have been documented and some are interesting reading here are some BBC accounts Blackburn and the Police, Glastonbury, why goodness
they never even investigated things for the most part

One file In one, a military officer predictsembarassment if the public discovered a "lack of funds and higher priorities" were stopping UFO investigations

Another BBC link

There was far more interesting news in the statements of Nick Pope the man in charge of UFO investigation for England’s Ministry of Defence from 1991 through 1994.

Let's jump I hate making the intro too big.

Greetings again TWiUPians Sunday means it’s documentary day.  Today we’re going to present one of the classics in UFO documentaries 1979’s It Has Begun.

This documentary came out in 1979 and features Dr. Jacques Vallee and is presented by Rod Serling. Written by Robert Emenegger.Yes, its the same person who was pretty close to uncovering the reality behind the alleged reports about the landing of a UFO at Holloman AFB. He also appears shortly in the one about the Presidential knowledge about UFO's, part of the History Channel's UFO Files Series! It's a pretty good video, and should definitely go into the video library of anyone interested in the scientific study of UFOs.

Google Video Reviewudy of UFOs.

Last week the British Ministry of Defense released another batch of UFO files to the public and through their government archives.

The BBC Baby

Guess what next Thursday’s full edition is going to be on?

Howdy TWiUPians.  It’s Thursday and that means we’re doing another full edition of the Week in UFO Phenomenon.

This week was full of good news not the least of which was the announcement above.  In April S.E.T.I. the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence had to shutter its’ large Allen Telescope Array due to a lack of funding.  This is a series of  42 six meter radio telescope dishes located at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory in Northern California.

The array had been originally funded by Microsoft’s Paul Allen, and was the first to be funded and constructed almost solely for the search for extra terrestrial life.

"Its main advantage is that we can use it 24/7," said SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak. "In principle it's always available to us. When you're using someone else's antenna you get a certain amount of time on the instrument. That makes for very inefficient observing. I liken it to borrowing a microscope to do cancer research."

The instrument became operational in 2007, but SETI was forced to shut it down in April 2011 for lack of funds. Now, by raising donations through its online SETIStars program, the institute has enough money to get the array up and running again within a couple months.

Space.com delivers the good news

Now who do we have to thank for this?  Well we have to thank you and me and all the little people, but it looks like actress Jodie Foster was integral in raising the lousy 200 grand needed to continue the survey.

The institute reached its goal last week of raising $200,000 to operate the telescope through the end of this year. The funds came from over 2,000 private donors, including the actress Jodie Foster, who played fictional SETI scientist Ellie Arroway in the 1997 movie "Contact."

Other contributors to the SETIStars fund include science fiction writer Larry Niven and Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders, who wrote: "It is absolutely irresponsible of the human race not to be searching for evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence."

Space.com delivers the good news

Way to go Ms. Foster, and to Larry Niven thanks to you maybe we’ll see the Kzinti incoming  (for all those who don’t know what a Kzinti is)

So cool to have S.E.T.I. back with the recent discovery of Goldilocks planets and the anamoly above things were just becoming interesting.

a sneaky diary for the old gang

by two roads

Reposted from two roads by Adept2u

WELL WITH MB LEAVING and all attention turned there I thought I'd sneak in an announcement regarding the former diary series here known as Saturday Night Uforia that's meant to be and hopefully is seen by those who subscribed.

The announcement is that the diary series is now at its own site. I've tried contacting the old gang through OT replies to comments, sometimes successfully and sometimes not.

And in an effort to waste a minimum of Marcos' kilobytes, that is all.

Happy Sunday TWiUPians and this week we are going to present Dan Akroyd Unplugged for our Sunday at the Movies presentation.  When you go to Dan Akroyd’s Wikipedia page you’d notice his occupations as actor, comedian, screenwriter, musician, winemaker, ufologist.

Aykroyd considers himself a Spiritualist, stating that:

I am a Spiritualist, a proud wearer of the Spiritualist badge. Mediums and psychic research have gone on for many, many years... Loads of people have seen [spirits], heard a voice or felt the cold temperature. I believe that they are between here and there, that they exist between the fourth and fifth dimension, and that they visit us frequently.[23]
His great-grandfather, a dentist, had been a mystic who had corresponded with author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on the subject of Spiritualism, and who was a member of the Lily Dale Society.[24]

Other than Spiritualism, Aykroyd is also interested in various other aspects of the paranormal, particularly ufology. He is a lifetime member of and official Hollywood consultant for theMutual UFO Network. In 2005, Aykroyd produced a DVD titled, Dan Aykroyd: Unplugged on UFOs. In it, he is interviewed for 80 minutes by UFOlogist David Sereda where he discusses in depth every aspect of the UFO phenomenon, and reveals specifically that they are blue, not green, but appear that way because of a filter.

On September 29, 2009, Peter Aykroyd, father of Dan Aykroyd, published a book entitled, A History of Ghosts. This book chronicled the family's historical involvement in the Spiritualist Movement, to which Aykroyd readily refers. Aykroyd wrote the introduction and accompanied his father on a series of promotional activities, including launches in New York City and Toronto, an appearance on Larry King Live and various other public relations initiatives. Aykroyd also read the introduction for the audio version of the book.

Dan Akroyd's Wikilink

Now let's check out a bit of a review on Dan's UFO documentary UFOs Unplugged.

Dan goes on record to review many significant UFO & alien issues now facing mankind.
Joining him is David Sereda, in an interview like arrangement, who is in fact asking Dan the questions. Not that Dan is a professional UFO researcher, or physicist - but he does share is pleasant views on the subject. And, after all - he was a Ghostbuster! Anytime a hollywood star steps forward it strengthens the world's fight for the truth.
As a variety of topics are discussed such as the Phoenix Lights, Roswell, the Mexico military UFOs, and the NASA UFOs, a steady flow of quality UFO photographs & video footage adds to the entertainment. It is some of the best quality content ever caput red on film or camera, much of it you may have seen, but at least a few you may not have seen before.

So jump the orange eclair and enjoy the show.

Hello TwiUpians.  It’s Thursday again and for those of you who follow the series you know it’s our normal full fledged entry in The Week in UFO Phenomenon, and this week the story we have to tell is a dozy.

However, before we begin just a little housecleaning to remind everyone who didn’t get the chance to visit our last Thursday’s presentation.  Kossack Tales our Friends Tell Their Stories.  About 3 weeks or so after we began the series I started begging people who had had experiences with UFOs to please share their stories, and many people did.  We shared those stories last week, and considering how much ridicule people who are brave enough to come out of the dark on this matter have to be, thanking them again and linking the work is the least I could do.

Now on to this week’s story.   A few weeks ago I put forth the question in a poll that if “disclosure” were to occur how would people like it to be done.  In other words do you want the government to disclose, would you like the scientific community to “disclose” and so on.  By a large majority people wanted to hear it first from Science.  Well here’s a possible beginning.

 Helm engage the warp drive destination over the fold.

Happy Sunday fellow travelers and welcome again to TWiUP’s Sunday at the movies.  
Last Thursday was a very special edition of TWiUP and if you missed it take the opportunity to check it out.  We did Kossack tales where several of our friends shared their stories of UFOs and it was just a whole lot of fun.

Before I begin on the subject of Roswell I have to tip my 40 to the Kossack who blazed the way in UFO discussion here on the Daily Kos Two Roadsand his truly excellent series Saturday Night Uforia.  One of these days I hope TWiUP get’s as good as his series was.  Two Roads spent a good deal of time discussing Roswell and the early days of UFOs and the diaries he produced on the subject are really entertaining.  If you're lurking out there Two Roads you got a spot on this masthead for the asking.

Let warp over the orange eclair thing.
