UFOs - Documenting The Evidence

Friday, 4 July 2014

Introduction to New Blog “UFOs – Documenting The Evidence”

         "I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark; on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law."
-          John Podesta, former White House Chief-of-Staff to President Bill Clinton

            My name is Paul Dean. I am a Melbourne based researcher who has spent 22 years studying masses of highly verifiable and ever-stronger evidence that unidentified and unexplainable events have occurred, and continue to occur, in our atmosphere. This essentially entails Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO’s) or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and maybe more importantly, the undeniable confirmation of such events in the form of testable physical evidence. It includes reviewable radar imagery, formally classified military, intelligence and civil agency documents now numbering in the hundreds of thousands and recorded testimony from extremely reliable and credible persons associated with the UFO matter at an official level. I am not interested in outrageous, unverifiable and unsubstantiated claims made by people. I have little time for the more “fringe” elements of the field. Nor do I have time for what veteran researcher Bill Chalker accurately calls “UFO theatre”: the entertainment spectre of the UFO subject, most of which being utter nonsense which does great damage to serious research. I purely look at the compelling and damming evidence which is now on the table.

     In this blog I will be presenting, on at least a weekly basis, wholly new information regarding certain aspects of the UFO phenomenon, and, especially, the evidence that so supports it. I will be discussing, if not actually presenting in uploaded image form, documents I have obtained from Australia’s various authorities under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Archives Act. I will be presenting information gleaned from interviews with persons directly or indirectly related to the UFO matter. Some of the information I will be detailing in the near future on this blog may be somewhat surprising, and certainly unknown to others in the field.

In my mid-teens and early-twenties, I leaned towards common thoughts regarding the UFO issue: Most, maybe all UFO events can be explained by myriad natural phenomena: misidentified aircraft; astronomical bodies; hoaxes; hallucinations and the like. Only when I started reviewing declassified government documents and listening to persons directly involved with the issue did I begin to run out of explanations. I now find the evidence so consistent and overwhelming that no reasonably intelligent person can deny that something amiss is happening in our skies. The gigantic numbers of released files directly dealing with the UFO matter plainly demonstrate that a not-so-insignificant number of government agencies have closely watched the matter, studied it and reached startling conclusions – conclusions most certainly kept well out of the public sphere.

I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark; on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law.

With these explosive words, John Podesta, the former White House Chief-of-Staff (and most trusted aide) to former President Bill Clinton, surprised audiences at Washington DC’s National Press Club during a filmed press conference organised by the Coalition for Freedom of Information in 2002. They were yet another official, current and high-level confirmation that our governments work actively in this field to hide information from the public.

Another potent statement that springs to mind appeared in the Forward of Timothy Good’s ground-breaking 590 page book Above Top Secret: The World Wide UFO Cover-Up. Admiral Peter Hill-Norton, recently retired Chief of Defence Staff of the United Kingdom and Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, could not be clearer:

The evidence that there are objects which have been seen in our atmosphere, and even on terra firma, that cannot be accounted for either as manmade objects or as any physical force or effect known to our scientists, seems to me to be overwhelming. A very large number of sightings have been vouched for by persons whose credentials seem to me unimpeachable. It is striking that so many have been trained observers, such as police officers and airline or military pilots. Their observations have in many instances been supported either by technical means such as radar or, even more convincingly, by interference with electrical apparatus of one sort or another.

If only there were a handful of statements ‘doing the rounds’ like these, one may find more palatable explanations for them. But there are not just a few of these recorded, verifiable pieces of spoken or written testimony by such high-placed people: There are hundreds.

When asked why I am so interested in the UFO matter probably my most central answer is that I have the sort of mind that wants things satisfactorily explained, and the one aspect of this whole matter which is starkly clear to me is that UFO’s, and the official response from government agencies, have not been explained to my satisfaction. It is as simple as that. When I say that I have studied this matter for 22 years, I actually mean it. I have had to learn about everything from military chains-of-command to air defence capabilities; from angular velocity to aviation safety regulations; from military document classification to atmospheric physics. I have had correspondence and engagement with Australia’s Minister for Defence; the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) Directorate of Coordination; Emergency Management Australia (EMA), within the Attorney General’s Department; The Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) Strategic Command; The Department of Defence’s Freedom of Information Directorate; Victoria Police; the Civilian Aviation Safety Authority (CASA); Airservices Australia (AsA); the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau; the National Archives of Australia (NAA); the Freedom of Information Office of the United States Navy (USN); the Navy History and Heritage Command of the USN; America’s North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD); the United States Air Force’s (USAF) Air Force Space Command; the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom; and a raft of other government offices, bureaus, cells, agencies and units throughout the Australia and the world.

I wish to firstly thank long time researcher Keith Basterfield for working with me so closely over the past two years. Our cooperation and specific endeavours have become intertwined to the point that our work is one-in-the-same. I also want to thank my wife Olivia for encouraging me to keep digging. I can also add research Bill Chalker to my list of acknowledgments for his knowledge and support. In Australian governance I am indebted to a number of persons who have assisted me. In no special order I wish to thank: Group Captain Barbara Courtney, Director of Coordination, Royal Australian Air Force; Group Captain Catherine Wallis, Director of Coordination, Royal Australian Air Force; Captain Simon Bateman, Director of Navy Communications and Coordination, Royal Australian Navy; Melissa Davidson, Assistant Director, Freedom of Information, Department of Defence; Daniel O'Malley, Communications Officer, Australian Transport Safety Bureau; John Taylor, Principal Lawyer, Australian Transport Safety Bureau; Steve Neal, Section Head, Government, Industry and Community Relations Section, Civil Aviation Safety Authority; Rod Dudfield, Director Freedom of Information, Department of Defence; and Dan Gleeson, Director of Communication Emergency Management Australia. I also wish to thank the members of Victorian UFO Action, an organisation which I am a member of, playing the role of researcher and historian. Finally, I must express my warmest gratitude to those in current defence and intelligence roles who have helped but, sensibly, cannot be named.

 From overseas, I have been greatly aided by: Air Commodore Kevin McEvoy, Air Component Commander, Joint Forces, New Zealand Defence Force; Piet Viviers, Manager, Flight Operations, Civil Aviation Authority, South Africa; Dyanne Bain, Program Information Officer, Civil Aviation Secretariat, Transport Canada; Andrew Badham, Air Traffic Management Safety Specialist, Aerodromes and Air Traffic Standards Division, Civil Aviation Authority, UK; and Chris Knapp, Aircraft Control Instructor, Royal New Zealand Navy.

A lady witnessed a broad daylight UFO sighting while trying to get the pet cat inside the house. The cat refused to budge and while standing there she then witnessed something she described as fantastic. She stated as follows “I had noticed what initially appeared to be a helicopter coming from the north and so I was waiting to hear the accompanying noise. As the object came closer, I noticed that there was no distinguishing aircraft characteristics and the strangest thing of all was the fact that there was no noise.”
The object moved smoothly and fast through the sky and also appeared to be shape shifting or rotating as it flew. The colours were changing between red and black. The object continued along a strait trajectory heading south and appeared to fly faster than any typical aircraft. “I have seen before” she says. The witness did not take any photos and said she was alone at the time. The report stated it was almost star like. It was a clear day with no visible clouds. It was stated a body of water is in the vicinity.

20th February 2014 Brunswick
The witness reports as follows: “Yesterday afternoon as I was sitting in my office in Brunswick on the first floor when my boss noticed something out the window facing south towards Brunswick West/Essendon area. It was a few kilometres away, low in the sky below the clouds. But it was still, not moving at all. At first we all got excited and went over to the window trying to identify what it was.
It was a slender silver or highly reflective object with a slight bulge in the middle. At first I thought it was a shiny smallish aeroplane (since Essendon Fields is not far away) but the fact it was not moving and did not have a fuselage I began to realise what I was seeing. I could not for the life of me tell you what this thing was, but it was a wide, slim craft of some kind. I went to grab my phone and realising I would have to zoom in quite a bit to capture it I looked up towards the UFO and it was gone. I turned to my co-worker and asked where did it go? She replied that she didn't know, it just faded away. It was crazy.”
This sighting was at 1.30pm in the afternoon.
Review Undertaken by VUFOA
Conditions on the day were as follows: low temp 11c hi temp 21c, presumed clear.
Due to high frequency aircraft zone, checks are made for possible air traffic. Result based on time, day and location: Unfortunately date is beyond available data however we can determine the angle seen from Brunswick would track direct route for most landings at Melbourne Airport. Assumption is object was moving away in a direct line of site which gives an appearance of no motion. It disappeared to the witness because the plane would have deviated from this track to land.

2nd September 2013 Carnegie
A man witnessed strange bright object in the sky at 5.51am in the morning. Mr X stated as follows:
“Naked eye appearance similar to round nebula but moving from NW to SE (heading ~170 deg true). Apparent size ~0.5 deg. Through 20x80 binoculars, object resolved into three fixed lights (2 forward and one rear, the rear light making a 90 deg 'V' with the two prongs of the 'V' in the direction of travel) however could not make out fuselage, although halo from lights hinted at a large object. Object moved at about the speed of a jet on landing approach, however no sound. Watched for approximately 3 minutes, then a light separated from main object (i.e. two objects) until disappeared below my local horizon. It was relatively dark with minor dawn light in the east. I am an amateur astronomer and the seeing was relatively good, however I was surprised at the halo given off this object given the otherwise reasonable conditions.

24th April 2014 Clayton
While travelling in the car Ms X and Mr X witnessed a strange low flying object they could not identify. Driving and heading south around 7pm they decided to try and follow it. Ms X described the following: “My boyfriend and I were in the car heading south. Saw a bright light in the sky. Only saw it for a second before it took off toward the west, really fast. As it changed direction it went from looking like a light, to looking like a triangle shape with three big coloured lights on it (red, white blue), one on each corner. (or maybe 3 separate objects?)
We tried to follow it but it was obscured by buildings. It looked to be pretty low on the horizon. I have never seen anything like it. It moved *really fast* and was quite bright. When it moved, both my boyfriend and I went "whoa" because it was so fast. And the next thing we both said was "was that a ufo?" It was definitely not a plane or a helicopter. And I'm pretty certain there would have been quite a few witnesses as it was very distinctive and in a suburban area.

3rd June 2013 Dandenong
Here we have a case which possibly rates as a CE2 event. (Possible trace evidence)
This young man clearly experienced something which was impossible to explain, here is his account of the event. “I AM VERY SHAKEN UP, my gas tubes blew off the car while I started it tonight , manually placed them on with hand and drove home at 80km on a very lonely stretch of road. About half way home I had a huge light come behind the car , thought it might be truck so I slowed down to let it overtake, then thought maybe police as he is right on my bum with high beam so I pulled over and so did he. I looked in the rear mirror and lights went off, then I sat for about 30 seconds looking out back window trying to see who it is but no car, so I got out to look and nothing was there except steam coming off the back of my car in minus 2 temperatures. I thought I might have fire so went behind and no fire but whole back of car felt about 50deg c. I got in quick started to shake with cold and a bit of fear and went straight home. Now i have no idea what happened.
