The 1980 Alan Godfrey case is the main abduction case that Gary has researched in depth. He thinks this case is important because as well as Godfrey’s testimony, there are several independent witnesses that saw something strange in the sky at the same time in the local area.
Timeline of Alan Godfrey’s experience. On November 28th, 1980, Alan was in his patrol car in Todmorden, West Yorkshire. He was sent to check out reports of cattle wandering around a local council estate. He saw a bright light in the road ahead and thought it was a bus. As he got closer, though, it became clear that this was not the case. He found himself looking at a rotating object, hovering over the road. He sketched the craft in his notebook. There was a burst of light and he found himself driving further along the road with no sign of the UFO. He returned to the police station and later found that he was missing about twenty-five minutes of time. The sole of one of his boots was split and he had an itchy, red mark on his foot.
Later, he would undergo hypnotic regression, where it emerged that he was taken from the car and led onto the craft. Here, he saw robot-like creatures and a humanoid wearing a black skull cap. Gary has studied the video tapes of Alan’s hypnosis session and has concluded that they were well conducted. Alan was not lying. He had nothing to gain from making up his story and, indeed, his experience has had a negative effect on his life.
Gary would also point to one pioneer of abduction research, the late Dr John Mack. Mack had concluded that many abductions go back to 'the victims’ childhood. Alan Godfrey had spoken of seeing a blue ‘tennis ball’ in his room as a child. Others have reported these blue orbs both in their bedrooms and other places, such as while driving.
As a police officer, Gary was interested in evidence, and this case has so much of it!
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star visited Area 51 in Nevada - where the US government is believed to be studying extraterrestrial life - while filming his latest show 'Educating Joey Essex - Space Cadet' but admitted he doesn't think anyone will ''ever know'' if there are aliens inside.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: ''I think aliens are definitely real ... There's evidence out there that you can clearly see. I would say aliens are definitely out there, I mean, I think we've all seen them we just don't know it.''
The 24-year-old TV personality went on to joke that he once spotted an alien at a nightclub in Essex, owned by his former co-star.
He revealed: ''I saw one in Sugar Hut ages ago. It just looked a bit like Micky Norcross but like a younger version of Micky Norcross.''
Despite admitting he's a keen believer in UFOs, Joey - who attended space camp and was given astronaut training during his American adventure - confessed he doesn't fancy a trip to the moon anytime soon.
He explained: ''I'd be really paranoid. I mean I've got bad claustrophobia as well so I'd be completely scared in case my rocket disappears or I get abducted by aliens or something.''
'Educating Joey Essex - Space Cadet' airs on ITV2 on September 2 at 9pm.
Date of sighting: August 2014
Location of sighting: Highway in Cornwall, England
This saucer craft was seen this week on the highway in Cornwall. The shape and size are perfect for being a crashed UFO or even a new military disk. This is amazing footing and I only wish the person continued to follow them so that we can see where they were going. Perhaps a military base nearby.
Watch out for aliens at the fifth annual UFO Festival lecture program, Saturday, Aug. 30 at the Exeter, NH Town Hall, 1 Front St. where Richard Dolan, AU Class of 1984, will be one of several speakers marking the “Incident in Exeter,” which occurred Sept. 3, 1965. Norman Muscarello was hitchhiking home when he spotted a 90-foot-wide, brightly lit object. Muscarello later returned with Officer Eugene Betrand and the two watched the object fly out of the woods and up into the sky. Several other witnesses reported seeing the object during this same time, including Officer David Hunt. The incident was investigated by the Air Force but officials couldn’t identify the object and the mystery remains unsolved. The UFO Festival is sponsored by the Exeter Kiwanis Club and is family friendly. Additionally festivities will be conducted outside the town hall, in Founders Park, and at the Exeter Public Library. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to children’s charities and children’s/community programs.
OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- What was in the sky over Ocean Isle Beach this weekend?
"I thought that's a strange light. Maybe it's a helicopter light, and I was watching them go, and they sorta did like a half circle," said Woozy Dell, who is vacationing for the week out on Ocean Isle Beach. "And then I saw another one come, and then I thought this is bizarre, and it got a little interesting."
What she says she saw were a series of dots in the sky. They appeared to be glowing orbs, changing in color and multiplying in number.
"So I saw two, and then I started seeing three, and then I started seeing four, and then I started counting them, because I thought, 'My gosh. What is this?" Dell said. "What I saw was an orangish red, and when it went back around it was white."
She saw it all late Saturday night. She said it lasted just 17 minutes.
"It was in the sky, and then went away, and it was, the lights, were so unusual that it was something you don't forget," Dell said.
We got an e-mail from someone in Wilmington seeing strange lights in the Wrightsville Beach sky, too, that night. Problem is no one knows what it was.
"I have to admit," Dell laughed, "I did go out the next night looking. And tonight looks like a clear night, so..."
Linda Moulton Howe has been researching anomalous phenomena for decades. She is an award winning journalist, and was one of the speakers at the 2014 Mutual UFO Network Symposium. The theme for this year's Symposium was UFOs and the Media. In this interview, we talk to Linda about her background, her research, extraterrestrial visitation, her thoughts on UFOs and the media, and the future of this field.
Just a few days ago, I did a radio show that included a 30-minute Q&A, in which the listeners could phone in and ask questions. One of the questions was: “What is your favorite TV show you have appeared in?” Well, there have been quite a few over the years. But, I would have to say it was a show that never actually aired, as strange as that might sound. It all began on a Sunday morning in mid-November 2005…
The show in question was on the world’s most famous UFO event of all: the controversial UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947. The production company had a huge budget to work with and the filming took place at both Norton Air Force Base at San Bernardino, California, and within the town of Roswell itself.
In addition to me, the team was comprised of well-known paranormal investigator and author Joshua P. Warren, ghost-hunter Brian Irish, UFO hunter Ruben Uriarte, psychics Laura Lee and Karyn Reece, unsolved mystery author Heidi Hollis, Native American Richard Hernandez, and bestselling author Jim Marrs.
On arriving at the old air base (that now falls under the jurisdiction of the city of San Bernardino), all of us were impressed by the sheer amount of work and planning that had gone into the show: we were each provided with clothing: t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, caps, watches – and even three brand new, all-terrain vehicles.
We were all amazed at the scene before us: a large studio had been built in one of the huge hangars that had been converted into a kind of forensic laboratory. Alien dummies were strewn across recreations of Army crates and gurneys, Bigfoot foot-casts were displayed on shelves, TV and computer screens flashed imagery of a multitude of unexplained phenomena, and countless photographs of ghosts, lake monsters and much more adorned the walls of our lab.
Interestingly, it was this same hangar that was utilized by the SyFyChannel to shoot certain scenes for Steven Spielberg’s Taken series of 2002.
The premise of the show was an interesting – and unique – one: since no conventional route of investigation had completely resolved the Roswell enigma to everyone’s satisfaction, why not employ the use of psychics to try and unravel the mystery?
As a result, we flew to Roswell and actually undertook a midnight séance in one of the old hangars at the old, and now radically revamped, base, where it was alleged the bodies found at the crash site back in 1947 had been taken. The purpose: to try and psychically contact the souls of the Roswell entities – whatever their true point of origin – and question them with regard to what really did, or did not, happen on that fateful day in 1947.
But, I’m getting slightly ahead of myself here. The filming began on Monday morning, with each of us giving head-and-shoulder-style interviews about our work and own areas of expertise. That was followed by dinner and a night on the town, another day of filming at San Bernardino, and then the flight to Roswell.
Our first port-of-call in Roswell was the building that stands on what was once the old base hospital. The nurses told us they had seen little, black-eyed, spectral creatures roaming the corridors when darkness had fallen. Until 4.00 a.m. we stalked the ghostly Roswell entities but they failed to put in an appearance.
The next day we were bound for the town’s Roswell UFO Museum, which had also been the site of ghostly activity. Of course, all of this made for excellent television as Josh Warren displayed his impressive array of electronic ghost-hunting equipment for the cameras – and particularly when Josh, one of the nation’s most respected and careful investigators, succeeded in detecting a wide range of anomalous phenomena that impressed everyone.
Friday was the busiest day of all: the morning began with a trip out to one ofthe alleged UFO crash sites. I say one of the sites because numerous locations have been offered where bodies and strange wreckage were supposedly found back in 1947. And so, our convoy of vehicles hit the road and headed out into the wilds of the desert.
That was fine: that is until someone realized after we had got out there that no-one had thought to bring any water. Some of the team had visions of us dying of dehydration at the site and, ironically, becoming the next victims of the Roswell crash. But, we survived, and the film crew got some great footage of us roaming the site where, maybe, aliens from another world bit the dust all those years ago.
Now, it’s time to cut to the chase: the midnight séance in the old hangar back at Roswell, where some distinctly strange things of a truly monstrous nature occurred at the witching hour on that cold, bleak Friday night. It was a very weird experience, to say the least. I kid you not when I say that the temperature was freezing outside – and inside the hangar, too.
The crew set up, someone shouted “Action!” and we all duly entered the hangar and took our seats at a table, atop of which was a multitude of large candles. Karyn Reece began an attempt to try and summon up the long dead of Roswell. And the dead just may have come, too.
The wind began to howl, and the walls of the hangar creaked and groaned loudly. At times, it sounded like footsteps were padding across the hangar roof above us, and an air of high-strangeness overtook the team and crew. Even more so, when one of the cameramen said that he didn’t feel well and promptly collapsed onto the floor. What had begun as an intriguing exercise was becoming something far darker.
But what was undoubtedly the creepiest – albeit exciting, too – aspect of the night’s activities was a startling piece of imagery captured, night-vision-style, by the camera team: namely nothing less than a spectral, snake-like entity that seemed to coil around the team as we sat at the table, holding hands and deep in meditation as we tried to summon up Roswell’s dead.
Indeed, a study of the film footage showed a brief image of what looked like a monstrous life-form that had been conjured up out of a diabolical, Lovecraftian nightmare. The slithering menace positively oozed uneasiness and dread; yet seemingly was not intent on causing us harm and vanished into the darkness above our table.
And then it was all over; the dark atmosphere seemed to lift, and someone said words to the effect of: “It’s a wrap.” We headed back to the hotel, completely unaware at the time of what the cameras had recorded.
There is, however, no doubt in my mind that some form of contact was made on that dark, cold night in the old hangar. Unfortunately, as I said, the show never aired. Yet, I am still hopeful that one day it will, and the ghostly secrets of Roswell will finally be revealed to the world.
