UFO Sighting While Aboard The Carrier USS Kearsarge
Date: 1960's
My father had an awesome story about a UFO sighting he and other crewmen experienced when he was aboard the carrier USS Kearsarge awaiting splashdown of Faith 7, the capsule from the last Mercury mission.
My dad had a good story. Too bad I didn't get more details, I heard it about twenty five years ago or so and he only told it once. Well, to me anyway. He passed away in the early nineties and I never got to ask him about it again.
The gist is he and a friend took a break to go on deck and have a smoke. A navy photographer was on board to take shots of the splashdown scheduled that day and had his camera on a tripod, just taking pictures of the ocean and the ship at night.
My dad said he was on the midnight shift and this was about two, two thirty in the morning. As the three of them talked and smoked they all saw a formation of three UFO's with red, blue and white lights on it. I don't remember if he said anything about strobing or flashing, but I do remember he said the thing he remembered most, besides their speed, was there was absolutely no sound coming from the crafts, which he described as being closer to a child's top shape than saucers. They estimated the UFO's were half a mile or so when they first spotted them, coming from behind their position as they had all been facing the sea and the ships came from the other side of the ship.
I can't recall starboard or port but he did say they were able to watch them as they approached, swung around the rear of the ship and hovered over the water a hundred yards or so away from where they were on deck. The cameraman was able to get some photos, not sure how many, before they all took off almost straight up and out of sight. As far as size goes he said he didn't think they were much bigger in diameter than the length of a fighter and probably taller than they were wide.
Here he mentioned a disagreement between the three with the cameraman talking his view and his friend saying they were bigger, although not by a great deal.
The cameraman turned the film into to his superior officer and was told to not ever mention it. My dad said he and his friend were asked about the incident by their NCO and also told not to ever talk about it. As far as my father was concerned neither he nor his friend ever heard anything about the film and never saw the cameraman again once he left the ship. Not that that's unusual, it was just a temporary assignment anyway.
I don't remember if anything went wrong with the Mercury mission but I do know they did retrieve the capsule okay.
My father served in the Navy for twenty years and that's the only story he ever told me about his personal experience with UFO's. He did tell me that he had heard other stories of strange flying things over the years from fellow sailors though, but never in any detail I could pass on, or even recall for that matter! ; )
It's not much of a story but I remember when my father told it to me my skin crawled. He was not a man to invent stories and not one time can I ever recall him telling me a story regarding his personal experiences that was not true.
I know had I been there I would have freaked! I wish I would have gotten more details, especially whether or not anyone else on the ship besides my father, his friend and the photographer witnessed the event. I did remember one other detail; the entire episode didn't last very long, only a couple of minutes from the time they first spotted the UFO's to the time they were out of sight. Yeah, some wickedly capable craft, whatever they were.
Thanks again and I hope you continue to get interesting sightings. Sure would be nice to find out one day what all this stuff is!
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
UFO Sighting Over McAlester, Oklahoma Munitions Depot (McAlester Navel Depot)
Date: 1975
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: Five or more.
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Red flashing light.
Full Description of event/sighting: I was an MP at McAlester navel depot, I was patrolling in a 1/2 ton pickup, when I went into one of the bunkers which was covered in ground and grass over a concrete locked door, we had to make sure the locks where secured on the bunkers and you could drive threw like a tunnel. The truck stopped and I could not get the radio to work or the truck to start. So I had to walk to a call station which looked like a phone on a telephone booth with a gray box, as I picked up the phone, I glanced back and upward, it was getting dark or dark can't remember, and there was a red flashing light. I thought it was a tower light flashing which was not unusual at the time. But then it moved at high rate of speed, 500 or thousands miles per hour, moving from the still position to a south east direction then to south west direction then back to the start position, that's when I contacted the head quarters. They sent another patrol out to pick me up and the officer of the day checked the airport and there where no airplanes or any traffic out at the time. Then there where more reports coming in all the time. There where reports of lights being beamed down on the bunkers from other patrols. As I was getting discharged I had heard that the army was taking over the base.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Hanakapia, Kauai, Hawaii Huge Wedge Shaped Craft
Date: August, early Sept. 1975
Time: Late morning, early afternoon.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Full Description of event/sighting: Sunny day, very clear, occasional cloud in the sky. Most of sky clear. Hanakapiai is in the Haena area. End of road going north on eastern coast of Kauai. I was camped in Hanakapiai and when I looked up in sky I saw wedge shaped something with splashes of color on bottom.
It didn't make sense to me: nothing that large can hover in the sky is what I was thinking. There was no noise coming from it. I had to look around me as I wondered if I was seeing things clearly. Everything around me was "normal." No distortions. I looked back in the sky and the object was still there. I certainly wasn't thinking about alien craft, extraterrestrials, etc. I was thinking only, how in the world can something that large be hovering in the sky?
The Size of the object: Estimate: 1 mile to a mile and a half long, a 1/2 mile wide and approximately 1 mile high. It was wedge shaped with two right angles at eastern end and 30 some degree angle at western end. There were blotches, splashes of color on bottom of it. One spot looked as if a giant had done green finger painting.
I estimated that I was looking at the object for about 20 minutes--that's just an estimate though. Then, after I had brought my eyes back to the valley I was in, I looked up and saw a number of wisps of smoke or vapor, anyway, like little tufts of cloud, except that the pattern indicated the tufts were caused by the draft of the UFO leaving.
Later I was living in the area called Taylor Camp, once owned by Elizabeth Taylor's brother, I was told. I told people about the sighting I had been witness to and was told in return that there were many sightings in Hawaii, that Hawaii was considered a "window" or portal area for UFOs.
Six years later (while living in Santa Cruz, CA) I heard from friends, (names removed) who had lived in Kauai also, that Haena-Hanakapiai had been a place of sightings for ancient Hawaiians. Legends had it that a "flying island" used to visit the area and pick up and drop off Menehune people (3 foot high people of Hawaiian legend).
I told them of my sighting. They said there were written records on ancient Hawaii confirming their information about the flying island.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Paris, Tennessee Object With A Bright Amber Tip
Date: 1998
Time: 10:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Paris landing state park.
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 1
Full Description of event/sighting: I would have never believed in UFO's until I saw it with my own eyes. I was asleep the night before, I was to start high school. My dad came home waking me up, saying (name removed) wake up, do you want to see a UFO? I thought he had been to the bar! But when I woke up, I realized he was sober. I got into the car with him and his girlfriend and drove to the end of the driveway and there it sat. It was double the height of a street light and right above a street light about a half a mile away. It was the color of amber, the color of the tip of a cigarette when you light it, (exactly). The object was so close, there was no wind blowing and it made no noise. We then saw a trucker pulled to the middle of the 4 lane highway sitting on top of his semi watching all this. My Dad is wild, he drove towards the UFO as it was moving and it managed to keep the same distance away from us. My Dad sped up and it just disappeared, we turned around to drive home I don't think I ever blinked that night. I watched out the back window hoping to see it again, there it was right behind us. Dad turned around and followed again, the whole time it stayed facing the west, after the third time of turning the car around we never saw it again, to us it seemed to be playing with us. I am 27 years old now and I remember that day like yesterday and I am now a concrete believer.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
Houston, British Columbia Object Loops Around & Rises Up Over The Mountain
Date: August 23, 2002
Time: approx: 7:00 p.m.
I had a telephone call from a lady telling me she had witnessed something really strange, and that it had really frightened her. She also told me that she had taken video tape of the object as it was heading away from her location, which was in a southwesterly direction. I made arrangements for the same day to visit and interview her over what she saw. I arrived at the witnesses home (farm) and was greeted by a very pleasant lady, she asked me into their home and we discussed what it was she had seen.
She said at approx: 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening, August 23, 2002 she was at the kitchen sink washing up the days dishes and looking out the window which over looks their large farm. He eyes caught a large bright light heading down behind the trees, which was at the far end of the families farm. She told me she could clearly see the shape of the object, and it was cylinder in shape. Shinny and metallic in color.
To her surprise the object looped around and headed back up into the sky.
At this time of the evening, it was still quite light out, and she had no problem in seeing it. She ran a grabbed her video camera and took some film of the object as it departed the area.
The witness brought out her video camera and showed me what it was she captured on the tape, and I must say I was really surprised. My first thought when I saw the object on the tape, was that maybe it was a meteor, but after hearing her explanation of the events this ruled out my thoughts on what it might have been.
If I had to explain what this object looked like, it looked exactly like one of the many movies we see of T.V., where a comet is heading towards earth with a contrail from the tip of it and running a short distance off the back end of it. But the contrail, if one wants to call it that, had another very shot tail coming out the back end, right in the center. It almost gave the impression of the flames coming from a fighter aircraft. But no flames could be seen with this object. The object was massive, and very bright.
It also moved across the sky rather slowly.
After I viewed the tape, the witness said, we are not finished yet. She went on to tell me that about a half hour later, while she was finishing off the dishes she was working on, she watched another "large bright white" object rise up from behind the Telkwa mountain range. She said straight up, in other words from the base of the mountain heading to the top and then stopped and hovered. Again she ran to grab her video camera, and started filming this object. After she watched it rise up from behind the mountain, the object moved to the right along the top of the range. ( HBCC UFO Note: this is where the video camera ran out of tape, but the witness did think to run and grab another blank tape, and started rolling again).
When she started filming the object once again, it had already reached the end of the mountain range, and was dropping down, but following the contour of the mountain. She filmed it until it went down behind the tress on her property which blocked the view of the object. The mountain range is at some distance away from the family's farm across the Bulkley Valley. I wondered if it might be something explainable, but from her description of the event, I soon ruled that out.
The witness dropped into my home the next day to drop off a couple of things I had left behind after the interview and she was still rather frightened due to not knowing what this object was. She said it gave her the creeps and hoped I would be able to come up with a reasonable explanation to what it was, just to make her feel better about the whole experience.
I would like to thank this witness for her help and report.
Full report can be found at: as more witnesses came forward with photos.
What HBCC UFO did not add was the video footage in which followed the initial sighting. The object dropped down out of sighting, looped around according to the eyewitnessed and rose up behind the Telkwa mountain range. The video footage to both can be found below.
Below: The first clip I have posted before on this site. The two remaining clips I had problems with and posting now, both clips are below. Also I would like to point out that a UFO documentary used the footage and aired the full event.

Indian Brook, Nova Scotia Purple Glowing Shaped Oval
Date: October 31, 2002
Time: 5 :55 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 5
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oval purplish disk.
Full Description of event/sighting: Halloween, a friend and I were giving out goodies at our local fire hall. I was inside and we had the door open. My friend went out, and then started yelling " hey guys, look at this." I thought kids were messing with the police car because we had the Police Dept right next door. He frantically called me to come out to look, so I did. What I saw, simply astounded me. This purplish glowing shaped oval came towards the fire-hall in then stopped, hovered there in one spot for a few minutes. My friend continued to call for the police member to come out observe what was transpiring in front of our eyes. It's massive size, even at a distance was huge.
There for a minute we stood in silence when the police member came out only to find it flying off very quickly. But he did say, he saw it going away very quickly in a blink of an eye, it was gone. I remember going home telling my family about it. Some of my nieces said they seen it and were watching it while they were driving. A few members in our community said they seen it, and were watching it from top of the hill in our community. A few days later some people said they were watching it from another community in Truro N.S., which is 20 minutes away. I almost forgot some one took a picture of it from her house, but when she developed it, it was a cloud or mist with a small red dot in it. My brother said he heard a broadcast from New Brunswick about a huge light in the sky while he was there.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
Oshawa, Ontario Multiple Objects Filmed
Date: April 9, 2005
Time: Approx.10:45 a.m.
Here is my report for Saturday, April 9, 2005 at approx.10:45 a.m. to near 12:30 pm. At home in Oshawa, I noticed with the naked eye, white bright objects moving high in the skies 8-10,000 feet or higher. They were moving in all different directions. Also note, there was even alot of chemtrails that morning. Next, to aid the sighting, usage of binoculars, which confirmed that there are "many" objects over our skies here. After the tool of the binoculars, time for the camera to capture some pictures.
Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.
HBCC UFO: The report and photos will be added to my site soon.
Vancouver, British Columbia UFO A Pin Prick Of Light
Date: April 14, 2005
Time: 5.00 p.m.
Yesterday I saw a strange phenomenon is the sky. It was 5.00 pm and very bright out. The sky was blue and there were a lot of clouds. My four year old daughter said mom there is the moon, (a crescent very small) and she said what is that white thing beside it. I had said oh clouds sweetheart, she said No there is something there.
I looked and saw what appeared to look like a star, a pin prick of light. This was not a plane, it was not a balloon, because one. there was no way a balloon was up that high and two. The movement of the object. The UFO moved right away from the moon, stopped, came back left, stopped again for a few minutes then progressed back to the right again where it then went into a cloud and vanished. I watched this for fifteen to twenty minutes. My daughter saw it as well as my next door neighbor. We could not identify it as a plane, balloon, anything. The possibility of a UFO is all we could come up with. Have you received any other reports such as this?? Also it was very bright out and we could see this is the sky looked like a star but weird movements, stops and then gone. I know it wasn't a satellite as I know the movements of one.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Rossland, B.C. Blue Lights Over Red Mountain
Date: April 23, 2005
Time: Approx: 11:45 p.m.
Four witnesses report seeing numerous bright blue lights rising and descending over Red Mountain while traveling south towards Rossland, B.C. The witnesses were able to observe five lights, all moving erratically. The lights traveled an estimated, one to two miles horizontally, then would return to the same location when they were first noticed. Some of the lights would move up and down, traveling a good distance in altitude before returning over top the mountain in a hovering mode. After approx: 4 to 5 minutes, three of the blue lights just blinked out or vanished, the remaining two moved off towards the west at a quick rate of speed. One of the passengers alerted the driver to what she saw and the driver pulled the car over and everyone watched the event unfold.
Thank you to the witness who called.
