The following article is an interview with North Carolina UFO and Paranormal Investigator which shall remain annonymous and includes investigations of the supernatural and of the unexplained. The topic examined during the interview was UFOs and Alien Visitation in North Carolina and elsewhere on the planet...
Introduction: UFOs, USOs, abductions, interstellar, and/or earthly
conspiracies; are they real or aren't they? Those are the burning
Questions. They form the big issue. Countless television shows air
almost nightly these days, and on just those subjects. And of
course, I no less than anyone else, am deeply interested. I want to
BEGIN INTERVIEW - Part One
Question - For the benefit of our readers, could you give us a brief
background about yourself with regard to the whole UFO phenomenon,
and how it relates to you in an overall capacity?
Answer - Yes. I'm 55 years old, have 10 years active military service,
have always had an interest in aviation, in both a professional
capacity and recreational capacity, a strong interest in Astronomy
and space travel and have been familiar with the sky for most of my
life. When I was in my childhood, teens and twenties, I had a few
strange, puzzling experiences that I retained in the back of my mind
that later I confirmed to be of a paranormal nature.
I first learned that UFOs might be real at age 12 when a friend of
mine showed me a library book on flying saucers. I immediately
became interested since I had a general interest in outer space.
Because of one particular "indoor" incident in my twenties, I knew
without doubt that a paranormal world of some kind existed but I
understood very little about it and continued on with my personal
life like most people do. I did not know if it was related
to "ETs". Despite many years of stargazing with a powerful telescope
while in my 30's and early 40's, I saw nothing unusual in the sky
that could not be explained by my overall aviation and astronomy
experience. But, in the mid-1990s, things changed. I tracked a
definite unknown craft in space through my telescope. Later, I filed
a UFO report with the Mutual UFO Network. But, due to
distractions in my personal life, five years would pass before I
could return to this matter and try to figure out what I saw through
In 1999, I watched a series of documentaries on TV that clearly
showed home video of the same type object as I had seen in 1994.
Craft of this type had been witnessed up close by many people in
Belgium in 1989 to 1991. My sighting had occurred in the United
States in early 1994. Many of the European witnesses described the
objects in detail helping me to confirm what type of object I had
seen hundreds of miles away in my telescope. These were the well
known "Belgian Triangles"—large 300 foot black triangle-shaped
craft. For me, this absolutely confirmed the existence of unknown
spacecraft. I immediately began serious investigations into the
phenomenon. I felt there was no choice. I had to know what was
going on. Unknown spacecraft weren't supposed to exist. Only months
later, I began having sightings.
The occurrences of these sightings told me that whoever the operators
of these vessels were, they knew who I was. This suggested a
connection of some kind with something probably not human. The
sightings seemed not to be random but intentionally arranged for me
to personally see. Later, I began to associate with other UFO
investigators and witnesses. It all snowballed from that point down
to this very day.
Ironically, I discovered my own home area in central North Carolina
to be a haven for any investigator looking for UFO sightings. I
somehow developed the ability to seek out individuals who had
experienced UFO and other paranormal phenomena and developed a
backlog of local cases, as well as not-so-local cases from some of my
I now have over seven years experience investigating unidentified
flying objects and have accumulated much more evidence than I would
have ever dreamed when I started. I can also add to my credit many
personal experiences of various kinds that I had not anticipated in
the beginning. Although I work as an independent UFO investigator, I
am certified by the US UFO Center.
Question - How does being certified help or work as an advantage for
you? Can you give us a brief description of what it takes to be
certified as an investigator? Do you think it is something most of
us with strong interests in UFOs should do—that is become qualified
Answer - It is hard to have solid credentials when one is working
independently of any organizations. So, having a US UFO Center field
investigator ID does help whenever credentials are desired. However,
USUFOIRC requires an investigator applicant to pass a comprehensive
written examination. The knowledge obtained from this course of
instruction is invaluable and serves as an excellent framework from
which to build a strong foundation for further learning. I think
that anyone can contribute to this field of research if they become a
field investigator or a researcher. This field of research is one of
the last remaining areas of study that is not overrun with other
individuals all trying to find their niche. Only a small fraction of
the overall UFO activity ever gets reported. This means that there
is much discovery yet to be made.
And I can tell you from experience; even a novice can make important
discoveries in this field. It is wide open and will always be. Of
course, it is not very easy to simply strike out on one's own.
Finding others who are actively engaged in the research field is
one's best bet.
Becoming a member of the US UFO Center is an excellent way to make contacts.
However, work is where you find it. And I have managed to do quite
well on my own. But I believe that the operators of some of these
vessels are working with me in subtle fashion allowing me,
personally, to learn more and more about their existence, as if they
want the human race to become aware of them, gradually. I feel it is
my job to satisfy my own curiosity then share what I learn with all
who are able and willing to accept it. I am not interested in
engaging skeptics. I have found them to be unable to fathom
anything "outside the box" of their cultural conditioning.
Interestingly, I find that skeptics are in dwindling numbers. And, I
think that this shows how times have changed over the past few
decades. People seldom chuckle at me when I look them in the eye and
tell them I am a UFO investigator. In many cases, they are thrilled
to meet a real investigator and usually have a few questions for me.
This field of research needs more investigators. And I have found
that independent investigators find more work than investigators who
are regulated by structured organizations. I do not feel that
structured organizations have made as much headway in UFO research as
they could have over the past 60 years. It looks to me that they
have been moving at a snail's pace. The main reason for this is that
they are always trying to beg an arrogant science community to take
them seriously. And the science community never takes them
seriously. UFO research organizations to this day have not figured
this out. They're being strung along.
And the science community does not rank as an ultimate authority in
my book, anyway. They pride themselves on clinging tightly only to
the hardest, most concrete data, yet they place it on top of a
floating layer of assumption. Once that happens, none of the hard
data is of any value for Mankind's enlightenment, but, it works great
for developing practical technologies that can give us more creature
comforts as well as the ability and likelihood that we will blow
ourselves to smithereens.
I honestly believe, and based on the evidence I've seen, that the
science community will be the last group of people to accept the
truth about UFOs. Average laypeople these days can now access modern
technology and make credible discoveries without having to fool with
the science community. And, to me, a layperson with a good
photograph of a UFO from the field is more valuable than a member of
an organization with a written report in their hands that will end up
in a black hole database. An independent investigator can have more
flexibility and get just as much recognition, these days.
I do not have time for the science community. They can catch up with
me whenever they feel like it. But, I'm not staying in their traffic
jam. Eventually, the people are going to realize that they cannot
trust the science community any more than they can trust the
government. They will eventually realize that it is not in the best
interest of the authorities to let the people know the truth about
And do the authorities, themselves, know the real truth? The human
authorities are full of deception, the alien beings are full of
deception, and the alien beings are fully capable of controlling or
seriously influencing the minds of any human beings they desire, such
as world leaders and scientific authorities. So, why should we trust
the powers that be? That is exactly what manipulating alien races
would want us to do. They are not interested in invasion. They are
more interested in exploitation, if anything. Invasion is something
that human beings like to promote. This is the human way but not
necessarily the alien way.
The bottom line is this: if we wait for the science community to ever
tell us that UFOs and aliens exist, the Sun would have burned out by
then. It is pointless.
I also believe that independent groups can do more to promote the
research. I think it is a bad idea and a waste of time to try to
please the science community on the UFO issue. Just look at where
they are on the UFO issue after 60 years. Hardly any farther along
than they were 60 years ago. And, I think it is their plan to keep
it that way. Remember, there are people at the top of the science
community that will not allow much paranormal research of any kind to
develop. And, there is evidence that they know about UFOs.
Otherwise, they would be excitedly pursuing this matter as much as
ordinary UFO researchers.
Plus, we are dealing with beings that have been here a long time,
know us better than we know ourselves, can control their level of
detection and have their own history that probably goes back hundreds
of thousands of years or more. The scientific method is not going to
outsmart these beings. Plus, the science community has not proven
itself to be serious about enlightening Mankind's knowledge of the
Universe. It has proven itself to be good only at developing new
technology that ensures mankind will continue down the same old path
it has always been traveling. The science community, like the
religious community, is primarily in business to decide what humanity
thinks and believes about everything, and generally control the
behavior of Mankind.
It has been proven that there have always been people who do not want
others to pursue and discover the UFO phenomenon. Enlightenment is
always on the back burner of the science community's agenda.
Spirituality is always on the back burner of the religious
community's agenda. This makes no sense to me unless they are
involved in hidden agendas of a contradictory nature.
I think that every man, woman and child should be concerned about the
UFO phenomenon, mainly because someone is profiting in some way as
long as they can keep the matter from the people of Earth. And it is
hard for me to believe that whoever it must be would have our best
interests at heart. It is important for me to point out that some
beings might be genuinely concerned for Humanity and are trying to
combat the efforts of any wicked beings. It could easily be the
same "tug-of-war" that is well emphasized in the Holy Bible and other
Question - You have had a number of personal experiences with UFOs,
visually. Which experience would you say is the watershed one—the one
that convinced you of their reality? Could you briefly describe it
Answer - It is hard to consider which one was most significant. But,
the 1994 telescope sighting was the one that told me UFOs were real.
I could never have said it with conviction until I had that
sighting. It was a clear, prolonged sighting lasting for over two
minutes. I could clearly see the object as if it was an airplane in
a pair of binoculars, and yet it was at least a few hundred miles
away. For those who may happen to not know, manmade satellites can
be seen traveling across the sky as star-like points of light only
because they are reflecting light from a low-angle sun.
They are best seen shortly after sunset and just before sunrise. I
confirmed the mystery object to be in space when I watched it "dim
out" as it reached the earth's shadow casting out into space in the
eastern part of the sky where high-flying manmade satellites had been
seen dimming out as they lost sight of the sun from their positions
in the sky. The sun had set in my location almost two hours
earlier. It was completely dark. To the naked eye, the object
looked like a satellite but was very bright (due to its large size
and reflective ability). In the telescope, I could count the
object's running lights. This object was neither the Space Shuttle
nor the Russian Mir Space Station.
At that time, I had no idea what a "Belgian Triangle" UFO might be.
But when I saw a video of one in 1999 flying at approximately 2,000
feet altitude over Brussels, Belgium, I knew without question - that
this was what I had seen in 1994. It actually worried me because I
did not know who possessed this technology. And no one was going to
admit to it. It could conceivably be an imminent threat, for all I
