The 10 Most Controversial UFO Sightings in History

We are not alone…… Here are some records of sightings of a few visitors from Outer Space.

1 – Belgian UFO Wave

The Belgian UFO waves were sightings of triangular UFO space craft in the skies of Belgium lasting from November 29, 1989 to April 1990. The events of 29 November was seen and documented by at least thirty different groups of witnesses and three separate groups of police officers. Everyone that saw the crafts described a large object flying at low altitude. It was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights on each corner of the triangle underneath. This giant craft did not make a sound; it quietly moved along the landscape of Belgium.

2 – Harbor Mille Event

The Harbour Mille incident was about the sighting of unidentified flying objects on the night of January 25, 2010 in Harbour Mille, Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. Witnesses say that there were at least three unidentified flying objects that were flying above Harbour Mille, with each of the crafts flying a few minutes apart. A resident was lucky enough to photograph the incident and it revealed a missile with fire emanating from one end. Other witnesses also said that the UFO came out from the Atlantic Ocean.

 3 – Warren Air Force Base Encounter

The Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming encountered has left witnesses baffled. On October 23, 2010, a large cigar-shaped UFO was seen over the base and the sighting lasted for 50 – 59 minutes!! Possibly what was so weird was that the air force base lost all control of its missile systems! Warren AFB controls more than 50 ICBM missiles and during that day, there was an outrage that the missiles may be controlled using backup systems. UFOs are known to be attracted to energy which may be the reason for visiting the air force base.

4 – Rendlesham Forest Incident

The Rendlesham Forest incident is a name for a series of sightings of UFOs in the Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk, England in late December 1980. The incident happened just outside the RAF Woodbridge which was at the time occupied by the US Air Force which was why most of the sightings were reported by USAF personnel. The incidents happened in a period of two to three days. On December 26, 1980, witnesses reported strange lights that descended into the forest and when servicemen went to investigate, they saw a strange glowing object which was metallic in appearance with colored lights. The craft flew the moment the servicemen went closer; this left three small impressions in triangular pattern, burn marks and broken branches.

5 – Mariana Incident

The Mariana UFO incident was a sighting that happened in August 1950 in Great Falls, Montana. Nick Mariana, general manager of Great Falls Electrics minor-league baseball team reported two bright silvery objects in the morning sky which were rotating while flying over Great Falls. Mariana also estimated that the speed of the crafts were about 200 – 400 miles per hour. The witness was able to record the incident for about sixteen seconds and the footage was believed to be one of the first ever taken of a UFO.



6 – Battle of Los Angeles

The Battle of Los Angeles was also called The Great Los Angeles Air Raid which happened in February 24 – 25 in 1942. This was far more than a UFO sighting since sources reported that the aliens attacked and afterwards an anti-aircraft artillery barrage took place. This occurred less than three months after the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The incident was called a false alarm by the Secretary of the Navy – Frank Knox which was believed to be a cover up for a strange reason. Many believed that the target of the aerial barrage was not a Japanese force but a UFO. Conspiracy theorists and UFOlogists believed that there was an extraterrestrial visitation that day as evidenced by a photo published in the Los Angeles Times on February 26, 1942.

7 – Westall UFO Occurrence

The Westall UFO encounter was an event that occurred on April 6, 1966 in Melbourne, Australia. On that day, around 11 AM, about 200 students and teachers from two Victorian schools witnessed an unexplained flying object that descended into a nearby open field. Afterwards, the UFO ascended in the sky and headed north west over the suburbs of Clayton South, in Victoria. The UFO was described as a grey saucer with a purple hue; the size was twice of a family car. The Dandenong Journal covered the UFO encounter in detail with two front page stories in April 14 and 21 in 1966.

8 – Chicago O’Hare Case

It was 4:15 PM on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. Federal authorities at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport were notified that a group of airport employees were witnessing a UFO. The group reported that the UFO was a metallic, saucer-shaped craft which was hovering in the airport’s Gate C-17. A ramp employee was the first one who witnessed the UFO. The pilot and the co-pilot of United Airlines Flight 446 may have also witnessed the object. Several witnesses that were not employees of the airport also witnessed the UFO and they described it as a “blatant” disc shaped craft. They quickly mentioned that it was not a cloud. The UFO hovered and then shot through the clouds at high velocity. It left a clear blue hole in the clouds; the hole closed itself after a few seconds.

9 – Colares UFO Flap

Colares is a city in the Brazilian state of Para and together with the cities of Santo Antonio do Taua, Mosquiero and Baia do Sol, it was visited by UFOs from October to December 1977 and early 1978. But UFOs were not just here to say hello. Reports say that the UFOs invaded the cities as strong light beams were fired at the residents of the cities. The people called the invaders “chupa – chupa” which meant sucker since the victims developed weird scars on their body. The light beams left holes on their skins and the inhabitants complained of different medical conditions afterwards. Military, UFO experts, medical professionals and scientists are unable to explain the event till this day.

10 – Trans – en – Provence Event

The Trans-en-Provence Case took place on January 8, 1981 in the town of Trans-en-Provence in the French department of Var. It was a rare case of UFO sighting since the object has left physical evidence. The event was described in Popular Mechanics as “perhaps the most completely and carefully documented sighting of all time”. Renato Nicolaï, a 55 year-old farmer was witness to the UFO. He heard a strange whistling sound and saw a saucer-shaped object about eight feet in diameter land at a lower elevation. Nicolai said, “The device had the shape of two saucers, one inverted on top of the other. It must have measured about 1.5 meters in height. It was the color of lead. This device had a ridge all the way around its circumference. Under the machine I saw two kinds of pieces as it was lifting off. They could be reactors or feet. There were also two other circles which looked like trapdoors. The two reactors, or feet, extended about 20 cm below the body of the machine.” The UFO took off almost immediately and left burn marks on the ground where it landed.
