Sheehan Shows Examples of Alleged NHI Script

Back in 2012, I made a post titled "Hieroglyphic-Type Symbols," in which I shared hieroglyphic-like symbols that have reportedly been seen on or inside UFOs. I mentioned Daniel Sheehan, an attorney who, while working on a special project with Congress in 1977, claimed to have seen photographs of what he believed to be an extraterrestrial spacecraft. In one of the photographs, Sheehan noticed hieroglyphic-type symbols on the outside of the craft. He secretly wrote down these symbols on the back of his notepad, successfully getting it past the guards at The James Madison Memorial Building. At the time I made the post, I was not able to find a picture of the symbols that Sheehan wrote in his notebook. To my knowledge, he had not yet shared them.

Now, 12 years later, in 2024, I noticed I had received a comment about this post asking me to please share if I ever happened to come across Sheehan's symbols. This prompted me to look into it again. I had been wondering about these symbols for years and questioning how is it that Sheehan keeps mentioning them yet never sharing with the public. Well, there has been an update!

A brief search led me to this recent post on Reddit by a user named DaZipp. 

They posted, quote: "Hopefully I'm not going behind Danny's back by posting this picture.

I am taking the New Paradigm Institute's ET certificate program right now, and during the first lecture, he mentioned the story which was talked about on Coulthart's new NewsNation show. I asked if we were able to see what the NHI-script looked like which was written on the craft that he saw, and Danny drew them for us in a Q&A session after his lecture.

As someone personally interested in language and scripts of historical cultures, they do look quite unique to me, and further, the simplicity of the characters is quite interesting."

The post also included this screenshot which looks like Sheehan holding up a piece of paper with the symbols.

To fact check, I found this picture of Sheehan in which he appears to be wearing the same tie. So, it seems that it is Sheehan and the Reddit post and picture above are looking credible. 

There was still a lot of confusing fuss on Reddit that I had trouble deciphering since I have been out of the UFO community loop for some time, but it seems that people are remaining skeptical about Sheehan's claims, and I think I know why. It's been years, as I mentioned, since I first posted about his story, and now, years later, it appears that Sheehan still has never shown the original notebook in which he claims to have recorded these symbols. You would think he had the notebook in a very special place or that he would still be in possession of it today and able to share it. Even a scan or photograph of the notebook would suffice. This is why people have been so skeptical. Where is the notebook to corroborate the story? I hadn't delved into searching if Sheehan has ever mentioned why he hasn't shared the actual notebook yet, but that seems to be the ongoing mystery here. And the mystery thickens. 

Through Reddit, I also found this twitter post where Sheehan was on a podcast in what appears to have been 2021. Unfortunately, a link to that podcast video reveals the video is private. One Reddit user said they saw the video, however, they could’t find the part where the notebook is shown. Maybe that part was edited out for the public version. 🤔 

That looks like the actual notebook in the screenshot above…except, I discovered THIS Reddit post from around 2020 that says the original notebook was destroyed in an office flood? 😱 This was mentioned in an interview with Sheehan that appeared in a book first published in 2019. If this is true, that would mean the notebook Sheehan is holding in the podcast picture from 2021 couldn’t be the original. 

Sheehan’s story sounds credible and seeing the two replicas of the symbols he drew together, it appears he still remembers what the symbols looked like, but the confusion behind what’s going on with the original notebook is strange to say the least. If he really did lose the notebook in an office flood, that’s heartbreaking. I’d be sleeping with the notebook under my pillow every night and wouldn’t let it out of my sight. But, that’s me. 

A Year After The Las Vegas Alien Encounter April 30, 2024: Aliens or Demons?

[AI brief. Quick read]: It's been a year since the peculiar incident in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 30, 2023, where a family reported an encounter that they believe involved beings not of this Earth. However, recent revelations have added even more shocking details to the story.

For those unfamiliar, the event unfolded as follows: a Las Vegas police officer captured footage of an unusual-looking object in the sky, initially mistaking it for a falling star. Shortly after, a distressed young man named Angel made a 911 call reporting giant, non-human creatures, roughly 8 to 10 feet tall, with large eyes and mouths, landing in their backyard. Angel, along with his brother and father, witnessed a bright light crashing to the ground before these beings appeared. He described the spot where the light hit as blurry, suggesting the presence of a cloaked portal or spacecraft.

A year later, NewsNation interviewed Angel, who still seems bewildered by the events of that night. He now expresses concern that the beings they encountered were not extraterrestrial, but rather demonic. According to Angel, these entities appeared menacing and emitted an aura of anger. He recounts being paralyzed with fear until he recited a prayer, after which he regained mobility. Upon returning to their house, the family discovered unsettling phenomena, including a suspended upside-down crucifix and pages of their Bible flipping as if being examined by an invisible force.

The family sought the help of priests to bless their home, and while Angel remains disturbed by the experience, they believe their house is now protected.

The incident garnered attention due to tangible evidence, including the police footage, the 911 call, and corroborating witness accounts of electrical disturbances in the neighborhood. Some neighbors reported TV and surveillance camera malfunctions coinciding with the strange event.

This encounter prompts intriguing questions about the intersection of extraterrestrial phenomena and religious beliefs, a topic I've long been eager to explore on Saucer Time. While the full scope of this subject is vast, future discussions may shed light on theories bridging the realms of good and evil, seen and unseen.

Included below are excerpts from the NewsNation interview with Angel conducted a year after the encounter.

[For more details. In my own words]: It has been a year since the Las Vegas, Nevada, "alien" encounter that occurred on April 30, 2023. The family who witnessed this event still believes they saw something not of this Earth and more details have revealed even more shocking revelations. A quick recap if you have not yet heard the story: A Las Vegas police officer on duty in a residential area captured footage of a peculiar-looking meteor that he first believed to be a falling star. Moments later, a 911 call in that same area was received. A distressed young man named Angel tells the dispatcher that giant non-human-looking creatures, possibly about 8 to 10 feet tall with big eyes and mouths, have landed in their backyard. 

I use the word "landed" because before these beings appeared, there apparently was a bright light that slammed to the ground. Angel, along with his brother and father were outside doing maintenance on a vehicle when they saw the light appear followed by a loud bang. Angel also mentions in the spot where the light had hit, it looked rather blurry as though whatever was there, be it a portal or spacecraft, appeared to be cloaked. That was just Angel's guess, but it sounds like a good guess to me.

NewsNation caught up with Angel a year later. He still seems as confused as ever recalling that night and even more concerned than before. The family still lives in that location, but plans to move. It may be because Angel believes now that the "aliens" he saw were actually...demons! Yes, demons. He said they were very scary-looking and appeared angry and grumbling the night he made contact with them. He also reveals being caught in the demon's gaze at one point, paralyzed in what could have been fear, but after he said a prayer, he was released from the immobile state. After his family ran back inside the house, they saw that a crucifix inside was suspended upside down in mid-air, and the Jesus figure had been ripped off and thrown across the room. Sounds like something out of a poltergeist movie! When they approached to get a closer look, the cross then dropped to the floor. They also saw their Bible flipping slowly through pages as if an invisible being was investigating some scripture. Similarly, when Angel got closer, the pages fell back to the normal laws of gravity. The family has since had priests visit their home, in which the priests blessed the house and informed them that what visited their home sounded demonic, but after the blessing, their house will now be fine. Angel is still disturbed by it all and has trouble sleeping at night.

I have been interested in this story since it first came out because of the multiple pieces of tangible evidence like the police officer's bodycam footage of the "meteor", the 911 call, and the multiple witnesses in the neighborhood who also saw the flash of light, heard the loud bang, and even reported electrical surges and cuts when the bright light flew overhead. One neighbor said their TV and surveillance cameras cut out around the moment this strange event happened. The Las Vegas alien encounter of 2023 raises an interesting concept that I have been wanting to cover for a while here on Saucer Time. The idea of extraterrestrials and how they coincide with the Bible. It's such a big subject to cover, but I've been making notes here and there. At least an outline may shed some light on a theory that fills in the mystery of good and evil and the seen and unseen. More on that in the future.

Las Vegas UFO 911 Call Alien Encounter April 30, 2023

A very intriguing incident happened on the night of April 30, 2023, in a residential area of Las Vegas, Nevada. If the incident proves credible, it's going down in UFO history as a prominent event that America hasn't seen the likes of since Roswell. However, unlike Roswell, hard evidence of an alien crash was nowhere to be found, so there was nothing for the military to retrieve. It could be because there was never a crash at all. Maybe it was a visitation.

The story begins with footage of a Las Vegas police officer's bodycam. While the officer is tending to what appeared to be a domestic dispute call, a bright, glowing, blue disk-shaped object streaks across the night sky. The flying shape distracts both the officer and a civilian who was reporting a dispute. The civilian quickly stops talking and turns around to view the strange object. Figuring out what this extraordinary object could be becomes the officer's new priority.

Moments later, a 911 call comes in from a family in that same neighborhood. A young man by the name of Angel nervously tells the dispatcher that his family lives in a house with a large backyard. While his brother, father, and he were working on a car, they suddenly saw a bunch of bright lights come racing down from the sky to the middle of their backyard. They felt an "energy" or shockwave when it met the ground and heard a loud bang. Angel then proceeded to explain that some 8- to 10-foot-tall beings appeared and that they looked like aliens. They had really big, shiny, eyes and big mouths. He also added that this was not a "joke". 

The police arrived shortly after to hear the family's story. Having just seen what appeared to be a "UFO" minuets before, the police officers were clearly a bit spooked. They believed the family was being honest but could not be sure if what the family saw was actually aliens or if the flying object from the bodycam was actually a UFO. It became another strange unsolved case that is now reportedly closed.

Here is a list of key elements to note about this encounter:

• Law enforcement recorded actual footage of an unidentified flying object that night.

• The officer who spotted the object later mentioned that he originally thought it was a "falling star."

• The object could be a number of things: a meteor, a ball of lightning, an alien craft, etc. But when asked if there was any testing or running drills that night, the military claimed that they were not doing anything of the sort.

• A neighbor's home security camera caught a flash of bright light and a loud sonic boom at the same time the object was reported to have landed. [Update: The video was actually recorded 2 weeks prior around April 14, 2023. It’s still very strange to have so much meteor activity in the area, yet geologists do not seem interested in retrieving any of the meteorites.] 

• Angel said the area in which the bright light had hit in the backyard appeared to be blurry, as if the object was trying to camouflage itself. 

• Angel and his family also reported that they heard multiple footsteps scattering around their backyard and also heard noises of footsteps on the roof. 

• Angel later, in a video on YouTube (video below), went into further detail on what the "aliens" looked like. He said they were 8 feet to 10 feet in height. They had very slim bodies, long arms and legs, big heads, big eyes, big mouths, a greenish-grayish skin tone, and did not appear to be wearing any clothing. He mentions making eye contact with one of the beings, and upon eye contact, he experienced a moment of paralysis in which Angel said he could not move.

• One alien went over to a tractor in the family's backyard to inspect the controls.

• Home security footage of the event was caught on video. Unfortunately, the moment the bright light hits the ground, the video screen goes black, and when the screen comes back, the bright object is gone.

• Information on the departure of the landed object and the alien beings has not been clear. 

• A few days after the incident, police returned to the family's home and saw men in suits, hats, and sunglasses leaving the residence. (This sounds a lot like the family was visited by the Men in Black.)

• It was reported that Angel has video of the aliens he saw. That footage has not been released.

• This encounter happened around May 1st, 2023, but was not widely reported by mainstream news until a month later around June 7th, 2023. 

My thoughts on this story are that, until proven to be false, it sounds real. Skeptics would disagree, of course. Since the only hard evidence released to the public was the police bodycam footage, was the blue light actually a UFO? There are no official government experts who could address the matter, considering UFOs are always a classified subject. In my research and from what I have witnessed, UFOs look like organic space matter. They've been described as resembling stars, falling stars, meteors, and more. Yes, it could have been a plain coincidence that a meteor flew by before a family called 911 with a fake alien story. I don't know, but anyone with a tractor in your backyard, you better keep an eye out! Maybe the aliens use those tractors to make the crop circles. I would also like to add my opinion on the aliens that were described. They sounded like reptilians based on the description of greenish-grayish skin, big, shiny eyes, and a large mouth. What do you think of this encounter story?

The Unidentified Objects Shot Down

It all began around February 1st when a Chinese spy balloon was spotted floating over Alaska. President Biden ordered it to be shot down, but U.S. generals thought it too risky to do so over land because of it’s size, which apparently was as large as three busses. The balloon, claimed by China to be just a weather balloon, floated over a U.S. nuclear missile base in Montana. Intelligence tipped off the US officials that it was in fact a spy balloon and on February 4th, 2023, the balloon finally entered over the ocean and US fighter jets brought it down with a missile. The event could be seen by civilians who cheered and filmed the take down later uploading the completed mission on to social media. 

Then things got really strange as all government stories do. Nearly a week later, on February 10, the White House held a press conference. John Kirby, Coordinator for Strategic Communications with the National Security Council, was in the midst of answering reporter’s questions when one reporter asked if it was true that another “high-altitude object” had been shot down over Alaska. Kirby then confirmed that a smaller, unidentified object, cylindrical in shape, was downed by US fighter jets. It came as quite a shock to some as it appeared Kirby was not going to necessarily speak about the incident had the reporter not asked. 

In the days following the press conference, two more objects were located and shot down! The second one  on February 11 and the third object on February 12. Another briefing with US officials was held on February 12 after the Super Bowl. American Air Force General Glen VanHerck and Secretary of Defense Melissa Dalton were on hand to answer questions. Here is a list summary of what was said about the unidentified objects. 

- objects look significantly different than the Chinese balloon

- smaller than the Chinese balloon, about the size of a small car but vary in size and are not exactly identical in size

- objects are being called unidentified because they are of unfamiliar shape and characteristics to known aircraft 

- it is not known yet how the objects are staying in the air or becoming airborne as they appear to be without any visible jet propulsion and go with the wind. Possibly they could be staying a float with gas inside of a structure or some other type of propulsion

- they appear to be cylindrical or spherical in shape

- debris from the downed objects have yet to be retrieved 

- they do not pose an immediate threat to civilians, but were shot down because they were coming close to US military missile bases

- objects do not communicate with air traffic control, are not easy to see on radar because of their small size 

- their origin is currently unknown (meaning no other countries have claimed these objects to be their aircraft) 

- objects are able to be tracked with heat seeking missiles which would indicate they do give off some type of contrast 

The most interesting take away from this briefing is when asked if the objects could be of extraterrestrial origins, General VanHerck said he is not ruling anything out! Once the debris from these objects is fully recovered, hopefully more questions will be answered. 

I would be surprised if these objects turned out to be of extraterrestrial origin. Right now I’m on the edge of my seat because if they turn out to be more spy devices, this is not good news. Our military and defense should have been more on the ball with this sort of stuff. It’s quite an uncomfortable feeling to have our national defense team not knowing what a spy blimp is. You think they would know considering we have all these high-tech weapons and aircraft, but floating mini blimps are beyond comprehension? It’s strange for sure and although I appreciate the disclosure that has been givin thus far, I still can’t help but be suspicious about it. Just last month, in January, the 2022 Annual Report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena was released to the public. It basically mentioned the many reports on objects similar to the ones that have been shot down this week. Next, came the spy balloon and a week later these unidentified floating objects 🤔 It could all be coincidence, but the timing seems so calculated. It’s hard to ever tell as the government has had a history of coverups, false flags and scandal. Another strange aspect is the absence of President Biden during these briefings. It could suggest this disclosure to be authentic since Biden doesn’t seem to know enough about it to speak on it, or it could suggest he doesn’t care because it’s a fabricated story intended for distraction or political manipulation. Whatever it is, Saucer Time is on the case, but for now, seems like everything is still…up in the air 😅 no pun intended.

Patterson Bigfoot film - Real or Hoax: Chorvinsky, Gimlin, Morris and Heironimus

I came across this investigation conducted by the late Mark Chorvinsky. Back in 1996, he set out to get some answers on the Patterson Bigfoot film. The infamous Patterson Bigfoot footage has had the classic run-around that all convincing paranormal videos receive. It went from fame to being deemed fake. Yet,  Roger Patterson, the man who filmed the Bigfoot himself never said it was a hoax. Many rumors and questions surround the footage. If the video was a fake, where is the Bigfoot costume and who was the Bigfoot actor inside of it?

Chorvinsky's report goes in an interesting circle. He gets tips from some of Hollywoods most talented special effects artists. Many who strongly believe the video was a hoax and that the suit wasn't even made well. One rumor was that John Chambers, famous special effects and makeup artist who worked on films such as Planet of the Apes, was the creator of the Patterson Bigfoot suit. However, when Chorvinsky contacted a very old and ill Chambers, Chambers responded in a voice mail saying he did not make the suit.

In 2002, owner of Morris Costumes, Philip Morris, claimed he sold an ape costume to Roger Patterson in 1967. Morris said he made these ape costumes for a popular side show routine where a woman would transform into a gorilla. Morris continued to make this claim up until he passed away. Even speaking at paranormal conventions about it, bringing a fabricated ape suit with him stating, "I've been talking publicly about this for years now and haven't been sued yet." - Tossing It Out (2010)

It should be noted that Roger Patterson sadly died of cancer in 1972. That's 5 years after his Bigfoot footage was released (1967). Any attempt to get Patterson's say in Morris's claims would never come to fruition considering Morris did not make his claim till after Patterson was no longer living. Many others who were close to Patterson and the footage are also no longer with us and the only other witness to this event is Bob Gimlin. After reading many articles about if the video is a hoax or not, it appears through interviews with Gimlin, that he was tormented by septics. At one point, the stress almost broke up his marriage. It's possible that Gimlin has gone back and forth on whether to continue advocating for the video's authenticity due to outside pressures or Bigfoot haters wanting to squash what some call the "Holy Grail" of Bigfoot proof. Gimlin never seemed to raise concern about Morris touring conventions with an ape suit and it could have been because Gimlin just wanted to be left out of it and left alone at some point. Or, maybe he didn't want to start a fuss with a man who was just trying to get some advertising for his costume business. But, Gimlin didn't hold back in 2004 when a man named Bob Heironimus confessed he played Bigfoot in the famous video. According to this article, Gimlin did proceed to take legal action against Heironimus' claim. 

In conclusion, hearsay continues to circulate the most famous Bigfoot footage known to Bigfoot fans.  In my personal opinion, I was introduced to the video on TV growing up in the 80's and it was presented as the real deal. It continues to appear very authentic to me. It's only in later years that I noticed the debate on whether the footage was a hoax or not. Bigfoot skepticism is to be expected, but out of all the crypto creatures to grace mythology, Bigfoot seems the most tangible. We know humans exist and we know apes exists, so why is something in between so hard to believe in? You tell me. Leave your comments below.

Free Energy - Pseudoscience Or The Science Behind UFOs

I have so many books to read and so little time! While doing some Spring cleaning, I was distracted by a book that was sitting on a metal utility cart in my room filled with things I needed to sort. My sorting stalled for a moment as I opened, Dark Star by Henry Stevens. My Dad had let me borrow it and he had bookmarked a few of the pages. The book is about German hidden bases and Hitler's quest to re-create flying saucers during WWII.

I had read some years back about the Vril Society and all the strangeness surrounding it, which I still to this day am not sure if it was entirely all true. It is factual that the Germans during WWII were experimenting with creating aircraft resembling flying saucers and they were even trying to create weapons that controlled the weather, but I'm not so entirely sure that the Vril Society really existed, or at least not in the way the rumors have told. After learning more about the Vril Society, I came to the conclusion that it sounded very similar to the American "Illuminati" conspiracy theory; where members of the American Government, and their billionaire allies, are part of a secret society cult that worship Lucifer, conduct human trafficking and participate in satanic rituals to gain all the power and money in the world. This is very much how the Vril Society has always been described and that rumor of this woman named, Maria Orsic, who supposedly had been a psychic in contact with aliens that could tell Hitler how to build a UFO?? I was always highly skeptical of this because there seems to be only ONE picture of Maria Orsic that exists online and she looks so perfect like a drop-dead, gorgeous, face-tuned, movie star! I personally think the picture of her is fake, possibly a painted-over photograph or maybe even a painting in general. Don't you think if she was a real person there would be way more pictures of her and maybe even some pictures of her with Hitler? Yeah, so I just feel very skeptical about all that, however, Hitler really was trying to make flying saucers. 

So, back to the book, Dark Star. This book is more about what the Germans really were doing back then and less about the rumors. The bookmarked page I turned to happen to have a quote from Nikola Tesla cited from another book titled, The Tesla Papers Nikola Tesla n Free Energy & Wireless Transmission of Power edited by David Hatcher Childress. Tesla states:   

" I gained this conviction through the discovery of a singular electrical phenomenon, which I described early in 1892, in lectures delivered before some scientific societies abroad, and which I have called a "rotating brush". This is a bundle of light which is formed, under certain conditions, in a vacuum - bulb, and which is of a sensitiveness to magnetic and electric influences boarding, so to speak, on the supernatural. This light bundle is rapidly rotated by the earth's magnetism as many as twenty thousand times per second, the rotation in these parts being opposite to what it would be in the southern hemisphere, while in the region of the magnetic equator it should not rotate at all. In its most sensitive state, which is difficult to attain, it is responsive to electric or magnetic influences to an incredible degree." 

The author of Dark Star was reminded of this quote when stating that German scientist Karl Schappeller seemed to have used the "rotating brush" recipe to create his Schappeller's Device and it was a theory this technology was being developed for the German flying saucers. I'm not totally clear on how Schappeller's Device worked exactly and no one else seems to be too clear on it either because apparently his blueprints for the device have somehow been lost (?) but, I think, Schappeller's Device was a contraption that was able to generate "free-energy" meaning it didn't need to plug in or charge. It could just be up and running no matter where it was because it could grab the free-energy around it from the Earth which in theory was referred to as "aether" which currently is considered pseudoscience. Apparently, when the device started up using a special battery (I did some quick research and couldn't find what kind of "special battery" that was...) a "glowing magnetism" appeared.  Sounds very similar to Tesla's "rotating brush". Schappllers's Device seemed like a pretty good invention that should have been rolled out as a free-energy unit so that no one today would have to be on the gird, but what happened to it? Oddly, I could only find the same thin history about it, and every article I visited tended to be another UFO website or blog that discussed the occult. Most articles didn't even mention what happened to it, they just said it existed and others just said whatever happened to it was unknown... So, that makes me skeptical that possibly Schappller's Device didn't really do what we've heard it could do or did it even really exist?  

Tesla's rotating brush, on the other hand, had documentation that it definitely existed and it did some cool stuff.  Although, at the time, Tesla really didn't know what his discovery would have been used for. It was sort of just this glowing magnetic energy inside of a bulb that was highly responsive to things around it. For example, in an article on the website, Free Energy Planet, Telsa describes the glowing magnetism inside to actually move to the opposite side of the bulb when the observer would come closer to it! It also could be manipulated using a small, inch big, magnet from as far as 6 feet away! The rotation of the energy could be accelerated or slowed down depending on the position in which the magnet was being held in relation. This sounds so much like the characteristics of a UFO with the glowing light and the quick magnetic-like movements. I really think Tesla was on to something and we should look into this kind of magnetic propulsion further. Heck, if Wint-O-Green Life Savers can spark in the dark when you bite down on them (they actually do I have tested it out!) then anything is possible!

The Phenomenon - New UFO Documentary Review

 Last month I watched The Phenomenon, a recent documentary that premiered Oct 6th, 2020. It's been a long while since I've seen a good UFO documentary. This is what UFO and alien believers needed. I highly recommend The Phenomenon. The film is directed by James Fox, who is also known for his UFO documentaries of the past like, I Know What I Saw and Out Of The Blue, and narrated by Peter Coyote, the actor that played Keys in E.T. (and also narrates my favorite Ken Burns’ documentaries!) The documentary outlines most of my favorite UFO encounters throughout modern history, with the exception of Travis Walton's Fire In The Sky. I don't remember it going over that story, but all my other favorites were there. Stories that I have covered here on Saucer Time such as the Malmstrom Air Force base nuclear missile launch shut down, the Rendlesham Air force base encounter, the classic Roswell crash, and probably one of my all-time favorites, the alien close encounter eyewitnesses of the Ariel elementary school in Zimbabwe. (I do apologize if you follow some of the links attached and the Youtube videos are no longer available. That happens so often with the UFO subject matter, but I leave the links there as a reminder of how often they get taken down. I wonder if it is to continue to hide the best evidence out there, or if it's just copyrights and coincidence.) 

The Phenomenon also has snippets of interviews with retired government officials, astronauts, policemen, and pilots, sharing their encounters with unexplained aircraft. There's nothing fictional about this documentary. Just the straight facts from people who would know best. I was most impressed with the Major Jesse Marcel interview. Marcel was a Major in the army in 1947. He was called to the scene when the UFO crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. A few days later, Marcel was directed by the government to pose for the media with a damaged weather balloon to cover up what had really happened. I had never seen him speak about it all in front of a camera before, I only read interviews, but in this rare, more current, footage, Marcel casually explains that there wasn't much to it. Just a crashed UFO with unexplained material and then later a cover-up for the media. Another fascinating part of this film was when scientist Jacques Vallee had a test conducted on some tiny pieces of debris retrieved from UFO wreckage. It wasn't clear which wreckage, however, the debris turned out to be made of, what I would personally describe as, "home-made" elements. Meaning, the extraterrestrial engineers took known natural elementals, deconstructed them, and then put them together to make up new ones. The alchemy that our scientists are still trying to figure out how to do today. I also give props to The Phenomenon for catching up with the students of Ariel elementary. They are all about my age now, in their 30's and seeing them speak about their encounter was as if they had witnessed it just yesterday. They still all seemed so astonished, shocked, and confused by what they saw. They still described the UFOs or spaceships in the same way they did 30 years ago and also the description of the aliens they saw had not changed either. Big, black, eyes, and big heads are forever engraved in their minds. Although this documentary doesn't go into great detail on each incident it covers, that would be simply impossible due to the fact that there are so many details and information within each story, it still covers them all in a timely matter that keeps the viewer glued to the screen and excited to learn more. The Phenomenon is enjoyable for everyone, from the UFO subject matter newcomers to the old research pros... like myself :^)
