UFO TV - UFOs and MJ-12 - Stanton Friedman (Video)

Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman is considered one of the worlds leading experts on MJ-12, the code given to an elite group of scientists and military personal set into action by secret presidential order to over see the harvesting and reverse engineering of technology from crashed UFOs of ET origin. After years of painstaking research, this LIVE presentation provides the facts about this secret research group that operates without congressional oversight.

Filmed this group of objects at 20:08 on 25/2/12 over Neath south Wales. As usual they are invisible to the naked eye and travelling east with no sound being made. Filmed using a Yukon ranger digital night vision device connected to a mini DVR recorder.
Also understand UFO does not mean I claim these are aliens from Mars etc it means unidentified flying object/s. Until you view the night sky in IR you cannot understand some of the strange sights you will see as well as the standard satellites etc which I track using three different apps and have all proved very accurate."

Scientists developing drill to search for alien life beneath Enceladus’ icy crust

Scientists have evidence suggesting the presence of water below the surfaces of several planets and moons. And the presence of water is the primary component scientists look for when searching for extraterrestrial life. Saturn’s moon Enceladus is one of these alien worlds where water has been detected, and it is also the target of researchers who want to search for signs of extraterrestrial life in its water.
Scientists led by the German Aerospace Center are developing a probe to melt and drill beneath the icy crust of Enceladus to search for alien life in the water that is thought to be below the moon’s surface. Researchers have named this probe IceMole, and as explains, “After IceMole reaches its target — a cryovolcanic crevasse filled with water it is hoped — it aims to sample the liquid, examining it for evidence of microbes.”
This exploration project, called the Enceladus Explorer, or EnEx, launched on February 22, but testing of the IceMole is already underway here on Earth. It has successfully been used to drill into glaciers in Switzerland, and researchers plan to conduct additional testing during the next couple years in Alaska and Antarctica.
According to Oliver Funke, project manager for the Enceladus Explorer at the German Aerospace Center, “EnEx deals with one of the most exciting tasks of space exploration — the search for extraterrestrial life.” Funke also stated that, if EnEx goes well, an IceMole mission to explore the polar ice caps on Mars will be proposed.

Screening will mark 15th anniversary of 'Phoenix Lights'

Dr. Lynne Kitei captured this video in 1997 of what
was to be called the "Phoenix Lights."

In March 1997, many Valley residents witnessed a still-unexplained sight in the night sky -- bright lights moving in formations and hovering low.
Since that time, the story of the "Phoenix Lights,'' as they've come to be known, has captivated countless people.
A screening and discussion marking the 15th anniversary of the sighting will be held in Scottsdale on March 11.
The sighting took place the night of March 13, 1997. A series of bright lights, at times appearing to form a V, moved quietly over the Valley. Sightings also were reported in other parts of the state.
Authorities were swamped with calls, with speculation that the lights were from flares dropped during an Air Force military maneuver in southwestern Arizona. However, no definitive explanation ever has resolved the questions. As a result, speculation has continued among UFO enthusiasts through the years.
One observer, Dr. Lynne Kitei, collected video during that night and several other nights as she continued to experience similar sightings.
Kitei, a Phoenix physician, collected data on the lights for seven years and came forward in 2004 with her information.
She is helping to organize this year's celebration of the anniversary.
"I put my personal and professional life on the line when I came forward," she said. "I couldn't stick all the information I had in a drawer."
Kitei lectures about health issues and knew nothing about UFOs before she started her documentation.
She partnered with producer and filmmaker Steve Lantz to produce the documentary "Phoenix Lights: We Are Not Alone." The film was originally released in 2005 and won several awards including best director at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.
The pair continues to update the film each year as more information is discovered and people come forward to share their experiences.
"This event put Phoenix on the map," Kitei said. "It's always a positive to be well informed. People leave with a better understanding of what's going on."
The movie will be shown for the seventh year in a row at the Scottsdale Harkins Shea Theater, 7354 E. Shea Blvd., in celebration of the 15-year anniversary. Tickets will be sold at regular price, and the movie starts at 1 p.m. After the screening, a presentation will take place featuring cast members, including former Phoenix Councilwoman Frances Barwood.
For tickets, call 480-948-6555.

Russian navy UFO/USO reports say that aliens love the oceans

By: Prufon News

The Russian navy has declassified its files of encounters with unidentified objects, which technologically surpass anything ever built by humanity, reports the news website "Svobodnaya Pressa". A special navy group, which collected accounts of unexplained incidents dating back to Soviet times, has released reports submitted by submarines and military ships. The deputy commander of the navy, Admiral Nikolai Smirnov, led the group and the documents reveal numerous cases of possible encounters with UFOs, says the website. Vladimir Azhazha, a former naval officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says that the materials are of great value.

"Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected to the oceans. Fifteen percent more - with lakes. So UFOs tend to hang around water," he said. On one occasion the crew of a nuclear submarine, which was on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean, detected that six unknown objects were following them. When the crew could not get away from their pursuers by maneuvering, the captain ordered the submarine to rise to the surface. The objects remained behind, came out of the sea, took to the air and flew away. Many mysterious events happened in the region of the Bermuda Triangle, recalls retired submarine commander, Rear Admiral Yury Beketov. For no apparent reason, the instruments malfunctioned or detected strong interference. The former naval officer says that this could be a deliberate disruption by UFOs.
"On several occasions the instruments gave reading of material objects moving at incredible speed underwater. Calculations showed a speed of about 230 knots or 400 kilometers per hour. Such a high-speed, where water resistance is much greater, is a challenge even on the surface. It was as if the objects defied the laws of physics. There is only one explanation: the creatures who built them far surpass us in the development," said Beketov.
A veteran of naval intelligence, captain 1st rank, Igor Barclay states: "USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects) often show up whenever our fleet or NATO’s fleet is concentrated near the Bahamas, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle and also in the Caribbean Sea."
