"LIMA UFO 4 7 2012"
"ANALYSIS OF SUPPOSED UAP IMAGES IN VIDEOS TAKEN DURING THE NOVEMBER 2010 EL BOSQUE AIR SHOW"
It has been claimed that various images of UAP (unidentified
aerial phenomena) were captured in several videos during the Nov.5, 2010
at the El Bosque airfield near Santiago, Chile. The attached document
is an analysis of representative images contained in
two of these videos. Download the Microsoft WORD file (---.doc) or the

REVISED ANALYSIS OF THE LYNNE KITEI VIDEO OF "PHOENIX LIGHTS" click here
As pointed out in my previous analysis
(www.brumac.8k.com/phoenixlights1.html), the three lights in the Lynne
Kitei video cannot be positively identified as being three of the lights
the famous "Krzysten-Rairdon Arc" of lights which was videotaped at
about 10 PM, March 13, 1997 and is shown in virtually every documentary
on the subject. This new analysis was done to try to determine whether
or not the three lights in the LK video appear above or below
the ridgeline of the Estrella Mountains. If they were proved to appear
to be below, then they were
not part of the K-R Arc. This new analysis makes use of better
analytical methods than before but the result is inconclusive as to
the lights appear above or below the ridgeline. (Note that this analysis
is not related to the UFO that apparently passed over
Phoenix in the 8:30 time frame.)
REVIEW OF COLIN BENNETT'S BOOK, FLYING SAUCERS OVER THE WHITE HOUSE click here
This interesting and timely book stars Capt. Edward Ruppelt, the
man who tried to convert the Air Force effort at UFO investigation
to a scientific "nuts and bolts" operation. He was partially
successful but just as his efforts were about to succeed, the higher
in particular General John Samford, Director of Intelligence, decided it
was better to "cover up" the findings of the Air Force investigative
projects. The history of Ruppelt's struggles with the Air Force are well
presented in this book.
UFO PAPER SUBMITTED TO SCIENCE MAGAZINE
This article,written in 1974, presents one of the first sightings I
I wrote a research article based on it and submitted the article to
SCIENCE Magazine. Several years earlier SCIENCE had published two
that argued that "Flying Saucers" were not real and reports were
spurious (e.g., misidentifications, hoaxes or delusions) so I thought
just maybe, be a possibility that SCIENCE would publish an article that
shows why scientists ought to treat the subject seriously. The
to the article provides the historical context. Was I stupid to submit a
pro-UFO article to SCIENCE......or just naive? And, how does this
fit into the modern context? Has anything really changed? (It is to be
noted that in 1979 I did succeed in getting a short article about
one of the New Zealand sightings into a conventional refereed journal
(Applied Optics) and even to this present date, so far as I know, the
New Zealand sighting is the only one discussed in a conventional
journal.) To read this "ancient" article, which has never been

REVIEW OF DR. JOHN ALEXANDER'S BOOK
If you are convinced that the government has a secret
UFO project this book could "rock your world." According to Dr.
Alexander, there is no group controlling top secret UFO information.
are several important consequences of this finding (or lack of finding):
there will be no disclosure (nothing to disclose), there
has been no alien technology transfer and there probably is no Roswell.
Are you feeling sick yet? Better check out this book.
It contains much information that the serious ufologist should know
about how the government
works and shows why a "cover up" is unlikely. There are discussions of
numerous other topics as well. On the bright side, Dr. Alexander
argues that at least some "UFOs are real" and probably represent ET or
"other intelligences." Click
HERE to see my review and commentary on his book.
WHAT IF THEY ARE REAL?
What happens "post-disclosure?" I began to think about that way back in
late 1986 when I first learned about the MJ-12 "Eisenhower Briefing
Document." At that time I thought it might "blow the lid off" and
force the government to a "state of disclosure." Obviously that didn't
happen, but the thinking that went into the article which I published
in the MUFON Journal are still pertinent to disclosure if it happened
tomorrow, next year or decades from now. Click

NIGHTLINE UFO 1996 FOR THE RECORD: During the late spring of 1996 many people were anticipating the
early July opening of the blockbuster UFO "epic" film, INDEPENDENCE DAY
. It was during this time that I was contacted by the ABC Nightline
show and asked to appear on a special documentary "SETI and UFO" show
they planned to do in early July. I was told that they had a video
of "strange lights" obtained from a telescope in Hawaii which normally
did classified research. They wanted me to view and analyze the video
"live" on camera. They would not let me see it first. I disliked this
requirement that I couldn't view the video first because I suspected
were going to try to make me look like a fool (for claiming the lights
were related to ET), but I did it anyway. Probably few people even
this rather good documentary and fewer still recall the video of strange
lights. Nevertheless, because ABC News has recently (2007) released
this documentary (available from Amazon) I feel that I should "set the
record straight" regarding the "UFO video." To learn about the
of this sort of research and to learn what "it" probably was, click
HERE. Note, by the way, that I reported
to Nightline the final result of my research but Nightline never reported that to the television audience.
HANGZHOU "AIRPORT SHUTDOWN" PHOTOS
At about 8 PM, July 7, 2010, the airport at Hangzhou, China, was
shut down after pilots claimed they saw a UFO over the airport. News
stories of this event included one or more photos of a strange looking
"object" in the sky over Hangzhou. These stories implied that the
photo(s) showed the "airport UFO." Analysis shows that the photographed
was probably a police helicopter. click
LYNNE KITEI EXPERIENCE During one evening in February, 1995, Dr. Lynne Kitei and her
husband saw and photographed some unexplainable lights that appeared not far from their house. They thought at the time that
the sighting lasted no more than 3 minutes. Several years later, while I was investigating her "Phoenix Lights" sightings, I
discovered that the sighting lasted longer... much longer! A short summary of the discovery is presented in the new edition
of her book, |

THE EFFECT OF THE ATMOSPHERE ON LONG EXPOSURE (1/2 second) IMAGES OF DISTANT LIGHTS
Some recent videos show what appear to be strange, "squiggly line"
multicolored images. Illustrations in this article show how slight hand
vibration, even when a camera is held against a rigid object (car,
post), combined with atmospheric scintillation or "twinkling" can make
the image of a distant steady light look "weird."

CUTLER TWINING MEMORANDUM The
only document found in the National Archives which mentions MJ-12, the
supposed top secret group of individuals who control access to highly
classified UFO information. Someone inserted this document into file
box 189 of "entry 267 of Air Force Record Group 241," probably in 1985,
where it was found during a search of the complete entry by Jaime
Shandara and Bill Moore in the summer of 1985. Who put it there is
still a mystery. Could it be a hoax? Certainly, but a very clever one
if it is. On the other hand, it might be real but the "MJ-12 Special
Studies Project" mentioned therein might have nothing to do with UFOs.
CHINESE UFO VIDEO OF AUG 17, 2006: "Spectacular"...but...video analysis finds "fingerprints of a hoax." Is this the real thing or a fake? What do you think?
SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS: this

UNIDENTIFIED HOT OBJECT in Florida! During a
police operation in the early 1990's the crew of a helicopted using a
thermal imaging system ("flir") saw some strange object flying along

unique. What was it? A hot UFO? see CLICK HERE , download and read the report (a WORD document)
IRANIAN JETS vs THE UNKNOWN... In September,
1976, two (one after the other) F-4 Phantom Jets tangled with a bright
"something." They chased it at speeds up to Mach 2 but then it disabled
their electronics when they got too close and (apparently) became a
threat to the object. This event has important military implications
and, in fact, the important information comes from the Air Force. But,
did we do anything about it? Probably someone knows a lot more than is
presented in this report. Kind of makes one wonder whether or not
"space weapons" will be effective against "them." Download the 1.2 meg

CHALLENGING THE PARADIGM! The "conventional
wisdom" is that UFOs/AFCs (alien flying craft) are not real (everything
is explainable). (Note: kooks and nuts say otherwise. See why in this
article.) Therefore it is difficult at best to publish papers on UFO
investigations in mainstream refereed technical journals. Most such
attempts are rejected by the editors. However, sometimes one is lucky
and sometimes you win. I did...once. To see how that came about CLICK HERE and challenge the paradigm whenever possible!
IMMEDIATE HIGH ALERT for
flying saucers??? An enduring mystery: why was the USA in alert status

NOTICE: PUBLICATION OF A BREAKTHROUGH PAPER in
the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS): "Inflation
Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitations" by Deardorff,
Haisch, Maccabee and Puthoff (JBIS,Vol. 58, pg 43, 2005). This is the
first(?)article in a refereed, mainstream science journal to propose
studying UFO reports to determine if any are evidence of ET visitation.

NEW ZEALAND SIGHTINGS of December 31, 1978 are
briefly mentioned in the JBIS paper (see above) as an example of UFO
sightings that can't be explained in terms of known physical phenomena.
Although several such reports were listed in the original version
of the paper, only these sightings were "allowed through" the review
process, apparently because they are the only sightings to be previously
published in a refereed science journal (Applied Optics) and because
they are the only ones known (to civilians) to involve coincident
radar-visual detection AND color movie film.
You can read about these sightings by downloading the file at CLICK HERE.

For more in-depth analysis see also the document below listed as
"RADARUFOS" (immediately below this) and, farther down on this page, the
Flashing Light document and the Squid Boat document.
NEW ZEALAND RADAR SIGHTING: Some of the most
technically interesting sightings are those in which radar plays a role.
There are many "radar only" sightings (no coincident visual
sightings). Of greater interest are the radar-visual cases in which (a)
witness(es) report on object in the same direction and undergoing the
same dynamics as a radar target. In this paper I discuss a radar-only
case and also the only RADAR-VISUAL AND PHOTOGRAPHIC case that I know
of, namely the New Zealand sightings of 1978. Download RADARUFOS (WORD document; about 240K).
MEXICO DOD SIGHTING of March 5, 2004 UPDATE TO DECEMBER 27, 2004.
My analysis of the sighting is for download. I initially withheld my
report in the hope that the Mexican Air Force would fly a test flight.
However, they didn't fly such a flight.
The first radar target remains unexplained because it had a rather
large radar cross-section and was traveling at high speed, yet was
"invisible" to the eyes of the crew and to the infra-red viewing system
("FLIR") which means that it was not generating heat. The the flir
"lights" were quite far from the plane. They may have been above ground
and therefore moving or they may have been at ground level.
After 2 years I am still waiting for an experiment that could prove
whether or not some or all of the flir lights could be ground sources,
in particular, gas-burnoff flames from oil wells. The detailed report
can be downloaded as a WORD document (.doc): click here .
You might also scroll down and click on the Bubba sightings listed
below (Gulf Breeze Bubba) and then scroll down to the section labelled
"Invisible Light". This describes an a sighting that involved infrared
sensitive film. It appears to show that a UFO changed its spectrum,
moving from predominantly visible into the so-called "near infrared."
STILL IN DEFAULT? The scientific community has
not been as scientific as it should have been relative to UFO sightings.
Science is not always what scientists do, said J. Allen Hynek.
Science is in default, said Dr. James McDonald (see FIRESTORM by Anne
Druffel). And guess what: science is STILL IN DEFAULT, which is, oddly
enough, the title of this paper first written in 1986 and now updated.

our noses for years. However, it was neatly covered up in the final
report of Project Twinkle. Yes, Twinkle Twinkle Little CRAFT!!
Too bad the phototheodolite film was (conveniently?) lost years ago.
But a remaining document pokes holes in the long-time Air Force claim
that UFO sightings are not evidence of something truly unearthly. In
1950 we had nothing that could fly at an altitude of about 30 miles.

FLASHING LIGHT film from NEW ZEALAND! What was
that triangle of lights that was observed, filmed and apparently also
detected on radar in December, 1978? Certainly not a Squid Boat! (See

sightings may be the most "instrumented" in civilian ufology, with
multiple witnesses, TWO INDEPENDENT TAPE RECORDINGS MADE DURING THE
SIGHTINGS(!), 16 mm color movie film and ground and air radar. Read

The Gemini 11 Ufo Sighting And Photographic Analysis
On September 13, 1966 during their sixteenth revolution, the Gemini 11
astronauts, Charles "Pete" Conrad and Richard Gordon, Jr., sighted an object
which they could not identify. It travelled close enough for them to have an
impression of size (more than just a point). Their initial report, as copied
from the flight transcript given in the Condon Report (l), is shown in the
upper half of Figure 1. The next day, NORAD claimed that the object was the
Proton 3 satellite and/or its booster at a distance of 450 km from the
astronauts. The NORAD report is given in the lower half of Figure 1. The key
phrase to be noticed is the statement that "it is unlikely that any
photographs would show more than a point of light." [Read More]
New York Academy of Voodoo Science?
I suppose what initially caught my eye was the nearly naked
man well hung with bananas (!) on the front cover. But that

as I flew to the MUFON Symposium in St. Louis. What said
"buy" was the list of articles across the top of the page, with
"Roswell Cover Up" sandwiched between "Industrial Ecology" and
"X-Ray Eye." I quickly grabbed the 'zine and found the Roswell
article entitled, "Welcome to Planet Earth." What I didn't fully
realize until later, when reading the article on the plane, was
that I was face to face with "voodoo science" published by the
New York Academy of Sciences (May/June issue, 2000). [Read More]
UFO Landing Near Kirtland Air Force Base: Welcome to the Cosmic Watergate
This article was written in 1985, several
years before the initial MJ-12 documents (Eisenhower
Briefing Document, Aquarius Document, etc.) became
public knowledge and many years before
the controversy over Richard Doty's activities.
At the time, I was not interested in the Paul Bennewitz
aspect of the Kirtland UFO activity. I was only interested
in the report of actual sightings of unidentified objects
at or near Kirtland Air Force Base. Hence the Bennewitz
controversy (and Bill Moore's activities related to
Bennewitz, activities not revealed until the late 1980's)
are only discussed briefly. [Read More]
Report On Phoenix Light Arrays
Although there have been numerous sightings of bright lights in the sky south
of Phoenix by various witnesses over the years, the lights videotaped on the
nights of March 13, 1997 and January 14, 1998 were particularly interesting
because (1) rather unique arrangements of lights within the arrays made the
identification of specific lights that appeared in two or more videos quite
conclusive and (2) the witnesses were in widely separated locations so it
was possible to use triangulation methods to determine the locations of the
lights to an accuracy of several miles. Although one could have asked for
better accuracy in triangulation, the fact is that 10, even 20 mile accuracy
was sufficient to determine whether the lights were nearby (within 20 miles
of Phoenix) or far away (more than 60 miles away). [Read More]
