Authorities are still trying to fathom the cause of the blaze on the 20th floor of the 63-storey hotel which broke out at 9.30pm local time.

The witness, a commuter who has not been named, sent details of the flying disc, he said appeared at 6.42am local time, to UFO investigators, which have been picked up by a number of other alien websites.

He said: "I was driving to work, when an object appeared in the sky.

"I thought the object was a blimp (airship) or helicopter at first, but it didn't move."

The witness said he photographed the UFO for 20 minutes

The shocked driver parked up at his office to investigate further.

he said: "It was still there. I looked closer and could not determine the craft.

"I worked as a civilian contractor for the Air Force for 12 years and am familiar with all types of aircraft."

He noticed the object did not have any lights.


The Conway Daily Sun - By Daymond Steer
CONWAY — Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton gave UFO enthusiasts a reason to cheer at the close of her recent editorial board meeting with The Conway Daily Sun.
IMG 0264Reporter Daymond Steer asks Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for her stance on UFOs when she visited the Sun on Tuesday. (MARGARET McKENZIE PHOTO)During the meeting, the former first lady, former senator from New York and secretary of state answered serious questions about foreign policy and the economy, and at the end, she chatted with this reporter, who had asked her about UFOs the last time she visited. She recalled that 2007 exchange with a smile and seemed to have fun discussing the topic.
"Yes, I'm going to get to the bottom of it," said Clinton with enthusiasm.
Back in 2007, Clinton had said that the No. 1 topic of freedom-of-information requests that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, received  at his library was UFOs.
Last year, Bill Clinton told late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he wouldn't be surprised if Earth is visited by aliens since so many planets out there may support life.
"I just hope it's not like 'Independence Day,'" said Clinton, referring to a movie about alien invaders.
When asked about her husband's nonchalant comment about contact with the third kind, Hillary Clinton responded: "I think we may have been (visited already). We don't know for sure."
Clinton also said she would like to look into Area 51, a secret military base in Nevada that has long been rumored to contain aliens. At first, she called it Area 54 and then corrected herself.
But Bill Clinton told Kimmel that he had already looked into Area 51. He said everyone who works there has to stop about an hour away to put on special clothing. Clinton said Area 51 is where stealth technology is made.
"There are no aliens there," said Bill Clinton, adding at the anniversary of the supposed Roswell, N.M., crash in 1947, he released all the documents he could on the subject because he knew there would be popular demand.
Kimmell had Bill Clinton promise that he would have announced the existence of aliens if he had found them.
Hillary Clinton, while at the Sun, added that the chairman of her campaign, John Podesta, is a huge fan of UFO lore. She said he enjoys a sci-fi show  on the FX network. Podesta served as chief of staff to Bill Clinton and counselor to the president for Barack Obama. 
"He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out," said Clinton. "One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51."

In an interview with New Hampshire’s The Conway Daily Sun, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that she would investigate Area 51 and UFOs if she were elected.

Reporter Daymond Steer asked Clinton about the topic in 2007, and revived the issue when she visited the paper’s headquarters for an editorial board meeting. “Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” she told Steer enthusiastically.

Steer asked Clinton about her husband Bill Clinton‘s comments in 2014 that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if we’ve already been visited by aliens. 

“I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure,” she responded.

The Democratic frontrunner also added that her campaign chairman John Podesta is a big fan of UFOlogy.

“He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out,” she said. “One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”

Bill Clinton told TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in 2014, "If we were visited [by aliens] someday, I wouldn't be surprised. I just hope that it's not like [the movie] 'Independence Day,' that it's a conflict."


This interview of Secretary Hilliary Clinton represents a breakthrough moment in American political history.
When considering this reportage it is essential to remember she had the option to speak off the record.
This is a bold statement as the inevitable outcome of "getting to the bottom" on the issue would be Disclosure, which is to say Secretary Clinton would become the Disclosure president, assuming Disclosure has not already taken place.
When asked about her husband's nonchalant comment about contact with the third kind, Hillary Clinton responded: "I think we may have been (visited already). We don't know for sure."

UFO's Over Poland
The Land Of High Strangeness

UFOS OVER POLAND – The Land of High Strangeness
Author: Piotr Cielebiaś

Book review by John Ventre

Piotr Cielebiaś has created a surprisingly interesting and detailed account of UFO cases in Poland. I love his title of “UFOs over Poland” since I have written a book called “UFOs over Pennsylvania” and I also do a talk show called “UFOs over Pittsburgh”. I agree that there is a link of lore to modern UFO cases, Ufologists need funding for their research and not all of the best cases took place 70 years ago. It was interesting to learn that Poland’s first flying disk case occurred in 1922 and that 22% of Poland’s population was killed by the Nazi’s. There is an underlying theme in this book of UFOs and/or the paranormal.
This book is full of remarkable cases and photos. Who knew of the 1959 Polish Roswell case of a small craft plunging into the water, emitting a red liquid and the coast guard finding a humanoid with more than ten fingers? We in the U.S. think that UFOs mostly occur here and are ignorant of the rich UFO history abroad; especially in “haunted” Eastern Europe where much folklore originated. It is also interesting that the Gray alien abduction is a U.S. phenomenon where as in Poland; they tend to be dark hooded figures much like in the early days of U.S. UFO reports. Although many UFO groups were formed in Poland, there is no official reporting agency for UFOs. In the U.S., MUFON does the job that the air force claims they do not do and Polish Ufologists can start their own MUFON chapter if they wish to.

It was interesting to read that when Poland joined NATO in 1999, the UFO subject became taboo. The government followed western protocols to debunk and ridicule cases and witnesses. I believe part of the agreement to obtain U.S. foreign aid and cooperation includes following U.S. policy on the handling of UFOs. It was also interesting to learn that the U.S. operates “Gitmo” type prisons on Polish soil and that Poland had more than 400 UFO cases from 1978-1989. Many of these cases involved green aliens or green clothed aliens and that many Polish scientists believed these were actually Russian experiments and technology. The chapter on pilot cases contained encounters of trying to shoot them down and instructions to report the case to their superior, follow safety protocol and not to speak to the media. Silence may be driven by the fact that the UFOs were not hostile and publicly reporting the case would entail having to thoroughly investigate each case. Similar conclusions were drawn in the U.S. in the early years of Project Blue Book although that opinion has changed over the past twenty years as the alien seems to have also changed, evolved or been replaced by a more aggressive type.

Scott Corrales' review of "UFOs over Poland"

Scott Corrales
by Scott Corrales

Ufology has often been accused of being provincial. On the whole, the average researcher or reader of materials dealing with anomalies has little interest in cases dealing with matters beyond sightings over their hometown, state or even country. Many cases – no matter how fascinating – are relegated to the “here be dragons” category: the text on ancient sea maps indicating that anything was possible beyond what was normal or of interest to those at home. Keep away. 

Piotr Cielebias’s UFOS OVER POLAND encourages us to take a contrary perspective, leading us by the hand into a part of the world that has not been particularly known for UFO/paranormal sightings. Eastern Europe as a whole has been overlooked by U.S. researchers, aside from books on Soviet – era cases by Paul Stonehill and translations of originals in the 1970s involving psychic phenomena. 

With the careful eye of a trained historian, Cielebias guides us through a fascinating landscape of cases old and new, a tapestry of enigmas reaching far back into the past, when Poland was one of Europe’s largest and most influential countries. UFOS OVER POLAND can be described as a full-service book: no reader will walk away with an empty sensation, as all tastes are covered. Those interested in high strangeness events will delight in learning of the Glinik Anomalous Zone, where UFO, religious and entity phenomena blend into one; students of the abduction phenomena will marvel at the Zofia Namlik experiences; adepts of nuts-and-bolts ufology will find a wealth of cases involving strange flying machines, substantiated by the testimony of airline pilots and police officers. 

"Most of the close encounters and other perplexing cases revealing the complicated nature of the UFO phenomenon, contained in this book, have never been known in the West [...] Many things we will mention here may sound exotic to some readers," Cielebias writes in his introduction, and this is precisely what the reader will find. Events from the distant and recent past alike that constitute a refreshing break from the shopworn UFO histories that have cluttered the landscape for two decades. 

It can only be hoped that this will be the first of many books by Mr. Cielebias, and we owe a debt of gratitude to Philip Mantle’s Flying Disk Press for making it available to Western audiences.

UFOs as we know are a global phenomenon and although there have been one or two books written about UFOs in Poland there has not been one book which has comprehensively covered the full shooting match. Well that was until now! This book has it all, from historical UFO sightings, wartime UFO reports, Polish alien abductions, pilot encounters, Polish UFO Crashes and much, much more. Quite an astonishing book this one and one in which I personally found totally fascinating particularly so for the immense amount of data that the author provides and most of which that has never been published in English before.
Admittedly the author does refer to other Polish researchers work throughout the book but in the main it is the author’s bringing together such a wonderful amount of high strangeness cases that one wonders what is coming next. These are not simple lights in the sky, the cases that the author refers to are in the main, low level, close proximity sightings which when you read them clearly show how traumatic some of them were to the watching witnesses. Piotr Cielebias begins his book by bringing the reader up to speed with some historical Polish UFO sightings. What I found of particular interest was when the author states (page 4) that the Catholic Church was responsible for the cultural and historical holocaust of the Polish identity! The author further states that in the main, anomalous aerial phenomena were first recorded in the medieval period. Indeed he refers to the last great Polish King, Jan 111 Sobieski (1629-96) who whilst engaged in a battle with the Turks saw a strange aerial phenomenon. But as far as the first so called modern era of Polish UFO accounts go, that would (according to the author) appear to come from the 19th century where again a number of strange things were seen in the skies above Poland.
The book is peppered with many bizarre and anomalous sightings and I found the Nowiny landing of 1943/44 very intriguing to say the least. I won’t go into detail here as it is for you to buy the book and see for yourself, but yes, quite an astonishing case. Poland, as we know, suffered many losses during the second World War and during that terrible conflict, Polish citizens and airmen were privy to witnesses what has been called ‘Foo Fighters’ those balls of light which tailed military aircraft from all countries during the war, the author illustrates a number of these strange Polish sightings in the book.
It wasn’t until the 1950’s the author tells us, that the Polish media (which was still controlled by the state) really began to inform its public about UFOs, and it pains the author to state, that even today no Polish politician has ever commented publically about the subject of UFOs. There are a number of UFO photographs and illustrations throughout the book which always helps the reader to see for themselves exactly what people have been seeing in the skies above Poland.
The subject of UFO crashes is also looked at in this book. As a reviewer, I always find it difficult to believe in such crashes mainly based on the fact that if we are dealing with a highly superior advanced civilization that are visiting us here on planet Earth, that their machines would crash, but, having said that, stranger things have happened and maybe there is a reason for this! The author brings to our attention a UFO crash that happened near Gdynia back in 1959. Was it an alien craft that fell from the sky or something else? Buy the book and find out! Some of the very close encounters cases that I read about in this book just blew me away not just by the accounts themselves, but by the actual craft that these beings came in! For instance the Jan Wolski case of May 10th 1978 we are shown an illustration of a craft that one would suggest all day long cannot fly but again, do we really know what we are dealing with? The author also takes a long hard look at some of the sensational humanoid accounts that have come out of Poland throughout the years and boy the reader is sure in for a surprise and numerous jaw dropping cases are presented (including the Czerniakow landing of 1979) The author tells us that a study of a number of Polish scientists back in the late 1960’s were of the opinion that the UFOs seen in the skies above Poland were simply the result of the Soviet Union testing things of a military nature. There is of course an element of truth in this, but certainly not all Polish UFO sightings were the result of the Soviets testing missiles etc. One of the more intriguing stories that I came across in this book, was a case where a UFO blocked an ambulance on the road which was carrying a woman to hospital to give birth, (I kid you not!) Furthermore there is also an account of a mother and son being assaulted by a flying saucer! (I did say that this book was astonishing!)
As in most countries, Air Force pilots are usually forbidden to discuss their own UFO sightings. Polish protocol states that they can report their encounters to their superiors but certainly not to the mainstream press, thankfully the author brings forward a number of very interesting pilot encounters for your attention. One of which the pilot was ordered to shoot the UFO down. The author also looks at civilian pilots and their UFO sightings. But it’s not just the air force that have had their UFO sightings, the military have as well and again the author brings forward some cases in respect to this (see the Nadarzyce Incident of October 1944) As I have stated, this book is full of amazing UFO encounters are the chapter on mass UFO sightings was an eye opener for me, (see the Piechota and Rzepecki sightings of August 20th 1979) The author then hikes the reader’s attention up with the amazing incident which occurred at Bedzienica-Nockowa, this really is a high strangeness case which involves UFOs and humanoids peering out from a luminous screen. As most UFOlogists know, car stop cases are a big part of UFO lore where the car engine dies in the presence of a UFO, again a number of such cases are given here.
Of course officialdom comes in many forms and the Polish police UFO reports are given the once over. The author tells us that little was known about Polish police officers UFO sightings prior to 1989 but thankfully as research progressed, these cases are now coming to light. What I also found of great interest whilst reading this book, was the UFO cases over the Baltic Sea but more importantly the USO reports, (Unidentified Submersible Objects) that my dear reader, takes this fascinating subject to another level and one in which this reviewer is totally immersed in! There are some wonderful accounts of USO activity here in this book. Sadly the UFO enigma has a side to it which is most unsavory, and that is UFO abductions and the author takes stock of a few of them here in this book where bedroom visitations are looked at. Yes, definitely not a side of UFOlogy that I as a reviewer of this book is happy with.
A number of different authors around the world have told us of certain ‘anomalous zones’ where a higher concentration of UFO reports and other bizarre things occur, well yes Poland too has a few of these zones. The small town of Glinik near Rzeszow has seen its fair share of UFO and humanoid activity and I guess is the Polish equivalent of Bonnybridge which is a small town in Central Scotland. (Rzeszow is another Polish UFO zone which has seen its own fair share of the weird and the wonderful) I did say that this book has everything and it even covers, (would you believe) flying humanoids! Yet again a few cases are discussed here. The author also looks at consciousness related UFO cases where he draws the reader’s attention to the very fact that some UFOs would appear to control the witness and some quite alarming cases are presented which certainly makes you wonder what on Earth is going on. Quite frightening actually.
The author does accept that not all UFOs may come from deepest space, he is of the opinion that there is a lot of truth in what French UFOlogist Jacque Vallee has to say in that maybe we should be looking at dimensions as part of the answer to the UFO enigma and the author quite rightly states the fact of how wide and diverse the UFO subject really is, from the shape and size of the entities seen, to the many different and varied UFO craft that have been seen. And what about the direct lack of contact? All this the author states, makes him wonder that the UFO subject is not as cut and dried as we would like to think it is.
All in all I found this a most fascinating book and a book which I have already stated has it all. This book clearly shows that Poland as a country has also been touched by the UFO presence and has a rich history of weird and wonderful events. The author has done a marvelous job in bringing all the best cases to our attention and believes you me; you won’t find a better book on Polish UFOlogy (or UFOlogy in general). A cracker, get it on your book shelf NOW. A big thank you should also go to publisher and UFO researcher Philip Mantle as this is his first venture into the publishing world.
