These two videos are long so consequently you need to make time for them. The first video is 93 minutes and the second is 85 minutes long.
Due to the length of these two videos, I've included clips from both for you to view beforehand so that you'll see why the videos are well worth your while.
The clips below are where many of the photos you see on the Internet today came from as did some of the stories. That is how rare these two videos are and if you are a UFO video watcher, these two videos are a 'must see'.
Way ahead of their time, these classic 1977 and 1979 documentary films, originally for theater release, provide undeniably strong evidence that many UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft.
They include interviews with Wendelle Stevens, Stanton Friedman, Travis Walton, Steven Spielberg, Stan Deyo, Jacques Vallee, Bruce Maccabee, Prof. Allen Hynek, Margaret Mead, Ken Arnold, Betty Hill, William Gill, Klaus Nobel, RAAF Sqdn Ldr White, Ray Palmer, Colin Cameron and many more.
Sadly, the master copies of this film and the two which followed it have been lost to the ravages of time. Only one VHS copy of it survived; so Channel 9 gave permission to convert it to digital video in an effort to preserve it as an archive for the use of posterity.
By right clicking (and open to new window) on the following pictures, you'll see an enlarged version, which will allow you to read the text that's in the photo.

Do we ever stop to think that if Roswell happened that UFOs would have been in our airspace both before and after that moment. Take a look at 18 reported UFO sightings that took place in 1947 just days before and days after the Roswell crash.

High altitude sighting in 1947
I was in the 7th grade. One summer afternoon I was lying in the hammock in our back yard, when a small dot appeared on the horizon, flying in a straight line roughly from north to south. I was extremely interested in airplanes, being able to identify everything flown by the USAF, and being familiar with the speeds they can attain. This was at the time of the first operational jets, and it was 15 to 30 times faster than a jet. It only took about 8 to 10 seconds to traverse the entire sky, horizon to horizon, a distance I estimated at 25 miles, more or less. The speed must have been 10,000 to 15,000 MPH. I had excellent vision at that time, being a little farsighted. The craft was too high to be able to determine shape, but there was no doubt as to the fact that it was real, and that it was fast!

It was about 2:15 in the morning when my wife woke me from a deep sleep and began to complain of stomach problems. As I was getting out of bed to get her something to drink, I heard what seemed like a strong gust of wind banging the shutters against the house very loudly. As I approached the window to see if it had been raining, a light of some sort, so blinding, appeared out of the darkness. The windows then violently thrashed open and I went completely paralyzed. All I could hear was what sounded like a thousand sirens ringing and my wife screaming in the background. All of a sudden I began to levitate. My wife had also been paralyzed and was floating, in midair right next to me. I cant remember what happened from that point on but when I came to, I found me and my wife outside, in the middle of our yard. When I looked over at my wife I could see she was screaming but I couldn't hear anything coming out. All of a sudden there was a complete silence, and let me tell you, I remember to this day that I have never heard a silence as silent as it was at that moment. Next thing we knew we were transported by a beam of light into what seemed like complete darkness. I couldn't see my wife, I couldn't feel my body, and I didn't know whether I was floating or strapped down. But I could feel this pressure, this invisible force, that was compressing my lungs to the point where I couldn't even breathe another breath. When I tried to scream, nothing came out, I didn't even know if I was breathing anymore. I began to hear my wife gasping for air and once I could hear her, the pressure got stronger and I tried to take a deep breath but inhaled nothing but some sort of fluid that filled my lungs so much I could feel my skin burning as if it was tearing off my body. It was then I began to hear my wife screaming the most awful, horrifying screams and I could do nothing for her. I began to weep as a sharp pain engulfed my entire body. It almost felt as if someone carved from the bottom of my legs through my spine, and up! my body with a dull knife. I have never felt pain so terrible in all my life. I passed out for what seemed like eternity. As I regained consciousness, I'm sure I saw my wife standing in front of me, and it seemed like she was reaching to embrace me, but when I tried to reach out for her, it felt like I had been thrown back and slammed into a brick wall which turned out to be the ground in my yard. I looked over and saw my wife laying next to me motionless. All the pain was gone and I looked over again to see my wife turning. I got up as if I was never even touched or moved or thrown around. I went over to help my wife up, and as I saw the expression on her face, everything inside of me burst because I knew that they had taken her from me forever. My wife died that night and to this day everyone believes that she passed in her sleep because the coroner could find no trace of injury and no sign of trauma that could have caused her to die. I never told this story to anyone.

I was only six, but I was playing jacks in front of my home, I looked up at the ball, and there they were..no noise..I know now, they were traveling in a southeast direction..I can't remember what they looked like, only they were not airplanes or helicopters..It might be associated with the Roswell incident...
I can't remember what they looked like, it bothers me today..I couldn't get my mother to come and look. It happened in the evening, it must have been warm weather, because I was playing Jacks outside, if it was daylight savings time, it could have been as late as 8:00 pm. They were in formation and made no noise. The only reason I saw them is because I looked up at the little ball I was playing with. This happened in 1947..

a very brilliant blue-white object coming towards us lowering above us and hovering over us a few minutes before shooting straight up
A few days after we returned from attending my Grandmother's funeral in North Carolina, my husband and I decided to walk down the dirt road leading to my parents home near the Allegheny River.
The road cut through nearly thirteen acres of corn and vegetables owned by an elderly couple who raised produced for sale. About half way down the road was a little shanty they called their "gardenhouse" where they cleaned and prepared their produce for market.
As we approached the shanty, we met the elderly woman coming up the road, heading for her home on the edge of town. We stopped to talk, she wanted to express her sympathies ad to ask about the funeral.
My husband and I were facing north, the woman facing us, as we talked. We noticed a small bright light coming toward us out of the north. It was moving very slowly, but coming down, growing larger and brighter as it descended. The old woman saw the look on our faces, so she turned and looked up. By this time it was very large and a very brilliant blue-white. The old woman fell to her knees, muttering something in her native tongue, Italian, and "crossing" herself. We were paralyzed with fear! Suddenly, after hovering for a few minutes, motionless, it began to go around in wide circles, then shot straight up into the sky and disappeared.
The woman ran up the road to her home. My husband and I ran to my parents' home, where my husband called the Observatory in Pittsburgh to ask what this "thing" was. They could not give an explanation, but that it "could not have been a plane or weather balloon, nor any invention existing at that time that could have done what this object did."
A few weeks later, reports started coming in on radio news about people in the west seeing strange things in the sky. Some were calling them "flying saucers" and "UFO's," and some were wondering if some other country had invented some kind of new scientific weapon.
We never completely got over our fright and have watched the sky ever since. My husband had been in the Navy in the war. We have see many natural things, such as meteorites, northern lights and man- made objects, but never have seen anything to compare to what we saw that evening.
Note: The week before we saw the strange object, we were on our way to North Carolina to attend my Grandmother's funeral, traveling Route 11 through the Shenandoah Valley. We were traveling straight through, without stopping for the night. During the night we had a flat tire. Th five of us, my parents, my brother, and my husband and I got out of the car while the tire was fixed. While we were standing on the dark road, a very bright meteorite sailed across the sky, leaving a greenish trail and a "swishing" sound.
The object we saw in Pennsylvania a week later did not resemble this meteorite in any way. It traveled slower, at first, then much faster than the meteorite, was a different color, and made no sound even though it got much closer than the meteorite did. The meteorite streaked across the sky, but the strange object moved slowly and then hovered over us before shooting straight up, lightening fast!

2 unmoving round objects side my side like eyes straight overhead above the flew clouds that drifted under them.
They did not move and I don't remember even looking at them the second time. they were white as the clouds but not metallic shining. I was very young like about only 4 years old at the time and I am 55 now this was one of the two times I was a witness of UFOs. These objects did not move enough for me to notice. they were not like the weather balloons that were prevalent during those days but because these were right over head and not like the side view that the weather balloons were. None of the characteristics below fit the objects that I observed. We were poor people that had to raise as much food as we could in the summer months to have enough food for the cold winters we have here. Mom was a mother of 8 and practically alone in her endeavor to raise us. so we spent a lot of time in the large gardens we had at that time. For the most part we ignored the objects and went back to our task of hoeing the strawberry plants growing in that particular garden plot.

Three disks appear in the West, stop at zenith, and proceed Eastward a rapid rate of speed.
While observing the evening sky while fishing on Lake Wisconsin my eye caught a flashing in the clouds toward the West where the sun was setting. Three gold colored disks appeared out of the clouds and slowed to a stop when reaching zenith. They appeared to be looking down at a beautiful scene below of a broad river set in a valley. My grandfather, a friend and myself could detect a slight motion as they stood in rather tight triangular formation above us, kind of wobbling. After some 5 to 10 seconds the lead ship slowing began moving Southeast towards Madison and the others brought up the triangular formation. I would estimate their elevation at about 3-4 thousand feet and they looked about the size of a penny at arms length. They soon accelerated at a tremendous rate and were out of sight on the horizon within 3 to four seconds. It was a daylight sighting I will never forget.

I have told this to people over many years. While on school vacation at my uncles junk yard one evening I noticed on the horizon at dusk a shiny light moving slowly across it. As it moved it began to increase speed until it disappeared. It moved from east to west across highway 19. I often wondered if this could be tied to another sighting soon after. I was always looking for airplanes and had observed many of them and I knew this was something that was far faster than anything I had seen before.

I was only 13 at the time but I will never forget what I watch on that warm July evening I am 69 now.
Its been a long time ago, but I feel I can tell some one that may believe what I watch cross the northern sky going in a easterly direction, the sun was below the horizon not a cloud in the sky. no stars were visible at least in that direction. There wasn't any sound they were of a metallic very shiny looking material from where I stood they would be the size of a full moon 80 or 90 degrees in the air they looked to be flying in a (V) pattern. I've kept this to my self for all these years not knowing who would believe me or think I was nuts only a hand full know my story its the truth

Several years ago,my great uncle told me a story (more like him admitting to something he held back for several years). In 1947, he was with the Army Air Corps Judges office. He was in one of many officers that were charged to represent Army Air man that were being charge with a crime. he was station at Wright_Patterson Army Air base in Ohio. He got a case involving an Air man who had stolen several thousands dollars worth of Army Air goods. He was sent to the air base where the air man was at. Once there he reported to the Military Police station and told them he was there to interview the prisoner.The MP officer on duty knew that my great uncle was from Wright-Patterson and escorted him to a section of the stockade. This section had only one way in and one cell. My great uncle believing that he was to see the prisoner. My great uncle was shocked by what he saw, he told me that he saw a little man (believing that man to be a midget) dressed in an sliver-gray flight suit, the man was very pale (as if he was not out in the sun much) with white hair. The guard told my great uncle that the prisoner refused to eat. My great uncle realized that this was not who he was sent to see left quickly and returned to the MP station. While in Washington DC, I did research and found the old flight plan that show that my great uncle had indeed left Wright-Patterson Army Air base and went to Roswell Army Air base on July-11-1947.

WHILE LOOKING OUT THE SECOND STORY WINDOW OF HIAWATHA COTTAGE AT ELMCREST CHILDREN'S CENTER I SAW A BIG (200 FT.?) CIGAR SHAPED CRAFT OF BURNISHED METAL ABOVE THE LAST ROW OF TREES OF THE ORCHARD BEHIND THE COTTAGES. THE ORCHARD ENDED ABOUT 100 YARDS FROM THE COTTAGE. I HAD LEFT THE FIRST BASE OF THE SANDLOT GAME TO GO UP AND BRUSH MY TEETH. I WAS 13 YEARS OF AGE. I WOULDN'T ORDINARILY LEAVE A BALL GAME TO BRUSH MY TEETH UNLESS FORCED BUT I WAS NOT FORCED OR SUGGESTED TO GO BY ANYONE THERE.
THERE WERE NO LIGHTS OR WINDOWS OR OTHER MARKINGS. NO FINS OR CONTROL SURFACES. IT JUST HUNG SUSPENDED SILENTLY ABOVE THE TREES. I LATER SURMISED THAT THE OCCUPANTS MUST HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN THE GIANT HORSESHOE SHAPE OF THE CHILDREN'S CENTER WITH ITS 10 TWO STORY COTTAGES AROUND THE EDGE/ROAD AND ADMINISTRATION BUILDINGS AT THE CENTER OF THE SEMI RING AND THE GIANT PLAYGROUND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CURVE....

THIS SIGHTING TOOK PLACE WHEN I WAS A CHILD. I WAS 9 1/2 yrs. old. It was the summer vacation for the school children. WE had been out of school for about 3 or 4 weeks. School was always out by JUNE 15 th. That would make the date about middle of JULY... I was "OUTSIDE " kid. NO one could keep me inside, no matter how they tried. I was out there "BUILDING " TREE HOUSES, or whatever I cold get wood & nails to build. THIS DAY WAS most likely the week-end, because my MOM had sent me to the STORE. I was on my way up the block, (WE lived in the MILITARY PROJECT.) When I noticed I Was Walking IN THE SHADE" & IT was a very hot day, for the BAY AREA. I LOOKED, EXPECTING TO SEE RAIN CLOUDS, BUT NO CLOUDS. THIS PUZZLED me. I STARED STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR. FINALLY, I FOCUSED MY EYES ON "SOMETHING , that was WAY - WAY - UP THERE. IF I had to guess, I would say , at least 15,000 ft. (now that I have flown , many times in a small airplane.)I could not believe what I was seeing. Confused, I ran down the street, yelling, "WHAT IS THAT ? WHAT IS THAT ?" NO one seemed to listen to me ?? I couldn't figure out WHY ?LATER when I thought about It , I would QUICKLY , CONVINCE MYSELF THAT NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE ME.WHAT I SAW, WAS almost the SAME THING THAT THE MOVIE " INDEPENDENCE DAY " had in it. UNBELIEVABLE, ISN'T IT. I ALMOST FAINTED , WHEN I SAW THAT MOVIE, BROUGHT BACK BAD MEMORIES. SEE ,THAT IS WHY I KNEW NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE ME WHEN I WAS A CHILD . YOU MOST LIKELY DON'T BELIEVE ME, AS AN ADULT....IT was pewter" in color. HUGE, HUGE < HUGE >THE clouds were rolling very fast & the edges would show here, & there ,until I had a complete picture of the COMPLETE SIZE " I ALWAYS THOUGHT I WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT IT , SO I DIDN'T ..

On July 15, 1947 I witnessed a large saucer-shaped disk outside Las Vegas, Nevada.
We were driving from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City. At 1000 hrs. I was a passenger in the car, and overhead in front of the car I spotted a silver colored disk, which was immediately witnessed by the other three in the car. It hovered in the same place for approximately five minutes and then left the area at an extreme rate of speed. I am reporting this at this time because I have just become aware of your site.

The Object was Huge,Saucer-shaped,beautiful silver,no sound,no exhaust-No lights as it was early afternoon.
My Mother,her Sister, and I were in a trailer parked along Dr, Smyth's Pasture fence, He was a Naturopath and had his treatment room in his home. On a Sunday in July we had gone to Brown's Orchard nearby and got a bushel of pie cherries to can. We had just finished cleaning the fruit and I took the dishpan of waste to throw it out in the barrow pit behind the trailer. I just happened to look down the road about a quarter of a mile and there was this huge,silver,Saucer shaped vehicle about 200 feet in the air,just slowly gliding along as if sightseeing, It was going West. It made no noise and the sky was clear of all clouds, I stood there and thought--"It cannot be a plane. It cannot be a balloon because if it was, it would be going East as the wind was blowing briskly,as the Sparrow nests were being blown out of the Locust trees that lined the pasture fence and the adult sparrows were having spasms.So what is it?"(I felt almost hypnotized) Finally I shook my body and went to the door and called my relatives to"come and see what I see"!) We watched it for just a minute or so and then it took off like a whiz and was out of sight for a seconds,then it came back into view about 10 miles away and then in a few more seconds it was gone out of sight (to the West).Never thought much about it until 2 years later I was in a grocery store in Gooding, Idaho, and was turning a stand full of "Pocket Books" and here was a book"Flying Saucers Are Real"by Donald Keyhoe. I called to my husband and told him to come there, I said, "That's what we saw out from Hazelton". Yes, I bought the Book and still have it stored in my Sons' Shed (I hope) at Fairfield,Idaho where we lived at the time. I was followed by one in 1976 after dark when I was North of Gooding coming to Twin Falls where I lived by now. It was smaller,and had just a steady red light that I could see. It was about 2 blocks away and very low. It was really about even with me and not over 100 feet in the air. I stopped my car ,after pulling to the sides as I was o! n a hill road,Turned off motor and lights and was going to get out of the car and tha object made a right angle turn and was gone East toward Shoshone and out of sight in a few seconds. (I really am glad it did that,now,after hearing and reading about all the Abductions in later years. I have seen strange lights in the sky a couple of times since that cut some funny caper that our planes did not do,but won't go into that. Thanks for reading. I know there are Alien Craft of some kind. Sincerely, ((name deleted)) of Hagerman Idaho. P.S. I'm past 82 but I remember those sightings as if it happened yesterday. Of course Mother and Auntie are gone to a better Land!!

The object seen that summer evening was chevron shaped, with a blue glow visable around the edges, moving silently & slowly. N-S.
I hesitate to even report this at this late date - but for the request on CoastToCoast AM last night. Needless to say my memory is very, very sketchy now.
I was out in the street with several other friends, after sunset but before dark (at dusk) when this craft 'appeared' in the sky above. [I don't recall who first sighted it, or name(s)] Aside from not even being sure if it was in 1947 or '48, much less, the month and day, or if it was more chevron shaped or a triangle - but memory favors chevron (I would have said boomerang shape then).
The things that do stick in my mind are that it was moving slowly, with no sound audible. In addition, there was a blue glow all around the edges of the craft, which I think was gray or dull metallic color. It appeared to be about the same size as the moon appears when near the zenith, maybe a bit larger.
Sorry, I don't even recall how it actually disappeared from view -- we may have been watching for a long enough time to exceed our/my teen-age attention span. I do seem to recall that it was traveling parallel to the street we were on, which ran in a north-south direction. (I think it was N15th or N16th St. in San Jose) (Could this have simply been a [US] military craft, so unique appearing, and silent, way back in the late 1940's ?? -- I haven't a clue!)

The object followed us (our car) over 40 miles and then stayed 100 feet off the ground for about 10 minutes. It then went straight up for 200 feet and then went horizontal at a very high speed and then disappeared. It made no sound and although it had a blue glow it did not have beam illuminating the ground. We no longer live in that area but can take someone to the site.

My grandmother woke me up to go to the front house get my uncle to check on the bright blueish light out behind our cottage. I was scared to get wake my uncle so I WENT OUT BACK. I looked up and there was a large disk object hovering over head with multi colored lights on it. The next thing I know I am being woke up to explain how my aunts vegetable and flower garden are totally destroyed. Completely to dried to ash like condition. My grandmother tried to tell them it was something in the sky but they would not listen and called my mother to come get me, I could not stay the rest of the summer. I complained about being sick and having severe cramps but they said I was faking it so as to get to stay. When my mother got there to get me she was real mad at my grandmother for defending me and mad because I was sun burn and blistered and my head was bleeding from a small hole or puncture. She claimed I must have gotten hit with a nail or something. I was 8, 9, or 10 years old because it was the summer my grandmothers brother died. It was on 8th street across from the golf course. I went back to see if I would remember the house in the late sixties early seventies and the house had not been changed. I did not ask to go in back or to see if the garden area to see if the ground was still dead. A short time after my experience my uncle told me about Mr. Arnold and his UFO sighting. My uncle was a pilot and owner of a single engine piper cub. He took me flying once and I was thrilled.

6-7 Disc shaped objects.
Date of Sighting: 1947-August Time of Sighting: app. 10 PM Location of Sighting: Saranac Lake N.Y. Number of witnesses: 5-6 Number of objects: 6-7 Shape of objects: Disc shaped Full Description of event/sighting: I was about 4 years old, were at our cabin in the Adirondacks and several neighbors were visiting us as we just arrived for our summer vacation. As I was young I was put to bed earlier but was listening to the adults talking in the living room.
We had no electricity or running water so when I wanted to go to the toilet which was an outhouse in the corner of the shed my father escorted me to the shed and went back inside the cabin door to get away from the mosquitoes where he could still see the shed. While in the outhouse every minute or so I could hear a whirring from far away getting nearer then going away. When I ran back inside the cabin and told my father he said it was probably just an owl or other creature.
A few minutes later all the adults were outside the back door as someone had gone to the outhouse and saw this disc shaped object which seemed to be slightly lit up and making a whirring sound coming into view from the south, passing almost overhead and disappearing around Mount Baker.I sneaked out and actually saw one ( one passed every minute or so) before I got caught and was sent back in. We had an old battery radio (tube) and when listening to the local news the next day we heard several reports of the same sighting from the village.
Thank you to the witness for sending in this interesting report.

Typically, I never post someone's entire article or story since there is a rule for such, however, within this particular article there is a statement that tells me that it was meant to posted in it's entirety.
The writer is anonymous, however, the words are familiar to me since being a contactee myself, these are many of the same things that have been spoken to me as well, which is why I find it necessary to post for 'anonymous'.
This individual is anonymous for all of the same reasons I was once. Stating such below is like spitting in the wind. If you're not labeled as off your rocker, you're still looked upon as someone too small trying to deliver a big message to a brainless society, which is futile. However, if the words are not heeded by mankind then that gives the aliens the right to knock on the door, which is what they planned anyway because they already know that no man will heed the words of those such as 'anonymous'.
The article begins here......
CHANGE THE WORLD! A message from them....
Each one of you wishes to exercise her/his free will and experience happiness.
These are attributes that were shown to us and to which we now have access. Your free will depends upon the knowledge you have of your own power. Your happiness depends upon the love that you give and receive.
Like all conscious races at this stage of progress, you may feel isolated on your planet. This impression makes you sure of your destiny. Yet, you are at the brink of big upheavals that only a minority is aware of.
It is not our responsibility to modify your future without you choosing it. Consider this message as a worldwide referendum! And your answer as a ballot!
Who are we?
Neither your scientists nor your religious representatives speak unanimously about the unexplained celestial events that mankind has witnessed for thousands of years. To know the truth, one must face it without the filter of one’s beliefs, however respectable they may be.
A growing number of anonymous researchers of yours are exploring new knowledge paths and are getting very close to reality. Today, your civilization is flooded with an ocean of information of which only a tiny part, the less upsetting one, is notably diffused.
What in your history seemed ridiculous or improbable has often become possible, then realized, in particular in the last fifty years. Be aware that the future will be even more surprising. You will discover the worst as well as the best.
Like billions others in this galaxy, we are conscious creatures that some name “extra-terrestrials”, even though reality is subtler.
There is no fundamental difference between you and us, save for the experience of certain stages of evolution. Like in any other organized structure, hierarchy exists in our internal relationships. Ours is based upon the wisdom of several races. It is with the approval of this hierarchy that we turn to you.
Like most of you, we are in the quest of the Supreme Being. Therefore we are not gods or lesser gods but virtually your equals in the Cosmic Brotherhood.
Physically, we are somewhat different from you but for most of us humanoid-shaped.
Our existence is a reality but the majority of you do not perceive it yet. We are not mere observations; we are consciences just like you. You fail to apprehend us because we remain invisible to your senses and measure instruments most of the time.
We wish to fill this void at this moment in your history. We made this collective decision but this is not enough. We need yours. Through this message, you personally become the decision-makers!
We have no human representative on Earth who could guide your decision.
Why aren’t we visible?
At certain stages of evolution, cosmic “humanities” discover new forms of science beyond the apparent control of matter. Structured de-materialization and materialization are part of them. This is what your humanity has reached in a few laboratories, in close collaboration with other “extra-terrestrial” creatures at the cost of hazardous compromises that remain purposely hidden from you by some of your representatives.
Apart from the aerial or spatial objects or phenomena known about by your scientific community, that you call ‘UFOs, there are essentially multidimensional manufactured spaceships that apply these capacities.
Many human beings have been in visual, auditory, tactile or psychic contact with such ships, some of which are under occult powers that “govern” you. The scarcity of your observations is due to the outstanding advantages provided by the dematerialized state of these ships.
By not witnessing them by yourself, you cannot believe in their existence. We fully understand this.
The majority of these observations are made on an individual basis so as to touch the soul and not to modify any organized system. This is deliberate from the races that surround you but for very different reasons and results.
For negative multidimensional beings that play a part in the exercise of power in the shadow of human oligarchy, discretion is motivated by their will to keep their existence and seizure unknown.
For us, discretion is motivated by the respect of the human free will that people can exercise to manage their own affairs so that they can reach technical and spiritual maturity on their own. Humankind’s entrance into the family of galactic civilizations is greatly expected.
We can appear in broad daylight and help you attain this union. We haven’t done it so far, as too few of you have genuinely desired it, because of ignorance, indifference or fear, and because the emergency of the situation did not justify it. Many of those who study our appearances count the lights in the night without lighting the way. Often they think in terms of objects when it is all about conscious beings.
Who are you?
You are the offspring of many traditions that throughout time have been mutually enriched by each others’ contributions. The same applies to the races at the surface of the Earth. Your goal is to unite in the respect of these roots to accomplish a common project. The appearance of your cultures seems to keep you separated because you substitute it to your deeper being. Shape is now more important than the essence of your subtle nature. For the powers in place, this prevalence of the shape constitutes the ramparts against any form of jeopardy.
You are being called on to overcome shape while still respecting it for its richness and beauty. Understanding the conscience of shape makes us love men in their diversity. Peace does not mean not making war, it consists in becoming what you are in reality: a same Fraternity.
To understand this, the number of solutions within your reach are decreasing. One of them consists in contact with another race that would reflect the image of what you are in reality.
What is your situation?
Except for rare occasions, our interventions always had very little incidence on your capacity to make collective and individual decisions about your own future. This is motivated by our knowledge of your deep psychological mechanisms.
We reached the conclusion that freedom is built every day as a being becomes aware of himself and of his environment, getting progressively rid of constraints and inertias, whatever they may be. Despite the numerous, brave and willing human consciences, those inertias are artificially maintained for the profit of a growing centralizing power.
Until recently, mankind lived a satisfying control of its decisions. But it is losing more and more the control of its own fate because of the growing use of advanced technologies, which lethal consequences on the earthly and human ecosystems become irreversible. You are slowly but surely losing your extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. Your resilience will artificially decrease, independently of your own will. Such technologies exist that affect your body as well as your mind. Such plans are on their way.
This can change as long as you keep this creative power in you, even if it cohabits with the dark intentions of your potential lords. This is the reason why we remain invisible. This individual power is doomed to vanish should a collective reaction of great magnitude not happen. The period to come is that of rupture, whichever it may be.
But should you wait for the last moment to find solutions? Should you anticipate or undergo pain?
Your history has never ceased to be marked by encounters between peoples who had to discover one another in conditions that were often conflicting. Conquests almost always happened to the detriment of others. Earth has now become a village where everyone knows everyone else but still conflicts persist and threats of all kinds get worse in duration and intensity.
Although a Human being as an individual, yet having many potential capacities, cannot exercise them with dignity. This is the case for the biggest majority of you for reasons that are essentially geopolitical.
There are several billion of you. The education of your children and your living conditions, as well as the conditions of numerous animals and much plant life are nevertheless under the thumb of a small number of your political, financial, military and religious representatives.
Your thoughts and beliefs are modeled after partisan interests to turn you into slaves while at the same time giving you the feeling that you are in total control of your destiny, which in essence is the reality.
But there is a long way between a wish and a fact when the true rules of the game at hand are unknown. This time, you are not the conqueror. Biasing information is a millenary strategy for human beings. Inducting thoughts, emotions or organisms that do not belong to you via ad hoc technologies is an even older a strategy.
Wonderful opportunities of progress stand close to big subdual and destruction threats. These dangers and opportunities exist now. However, you can only perceive what is being shown to you. The end of natural resources is programmed whereas no long-term collective project has been launched.
Ecosystem exhaustion mechanisms have exceeded irreversible limits. The scarcity of resources and their unfair distribution - resources which entry price will rise day after day - will bring about fratricide fights at a large scale, but also at the very heart of your cities and countryside.
Hatred grows bigger but so does love. That is what keeps you confident in your ability to find solutions. But the critical mass is insufficient and a sabotage work is cleverly being carried out.
Human behaviors, formed from past habits and trainings, have such inertia that this perspective leads you to a dead end. You entrust these problems to representatives, whose conscience of common well-being slowly fades away in front of corporatist interests, with those difficulties. They are always debating on the form but rarely on the content.
Just at the moment of action, delays will accumulate to the point when you have to submit rather than choose. This is the reason why, more than ever in your history, your decisions of today will directly and significantly impact your survival of tomorrow.
What event could radically modify this inertia that is typical of any civilization? Where will a collective and unifying awareness come from that will stop this blind rushing ahead?
Tribes, populations and human nations have always encountered and interacted with one another. Faced with the threats weighing upon the human family, it is perhaps time that a greater interaction occurred.
A great roller wave is on the verge of emerging. It mixes very positive but also very negative aspects.
Who is the “third party”?
There are two ways to establish a cosmic contact with another civilization: via its standing representatives or directly with individuals without distinction. The first way entails fights of interests, the second way brings awareness.
The first way was chosen by a group of races motivated by keeping mankind in slavery, thereby controlling Earth resources, the gene pool and human emotional energy.
The second way was chosen by a group of races allied with the cause of the Spirit of service. We have, at our end, subscribed to this disinterested cause and introduced ourselves a few years ago to representatives of the human power who refused our outstretched hand on the pretext of incompatible interests with their strategic vision.
That is why today individuals are to make this choice by themselves without any representative interfering. What we proposed in the past to those whom we believed were in a capacity to contribute to your happiness, we propose it now to … you!
Most of you ignore that non-human creatures took part in the exercise of those centralizing powers without them being neither suspected nor accessible to your senses. This is so true that they have almost very subtly taken control. They do not necessarily stand on your material plan, and that is precisely what could make them extremely efficient and frightening in the near future. However, be aware that a large number of your representatives are fighting this danger! Be aware that not all abductions are made against you. It is difficult to recognize the truth!
How could you under such conditions exercise your free will when it is so much manipulated? What are you really free of?
Peace and reunification of your peoples would be a first step toward the harmony with civilizations other than yours.
That is precisely what those who manipulate you behind the scenes want to avoid at all cost because, by dividing, they reign! They also reign over those who govern you. Their strength comes from their capacity to distillate mistrust and fear into you. This considerably harms your very cosmic nature.
This message would be of no interest if these manipulators’ tutorage did not reach its peak and if their misleading and murderous plans did not materialize in a few years from now. Their deadlines are close and mankind will undergo unprecedented torments for the next ten cycles.
To defend yourselves against this aggression that bears no face, you need at least to have enough information that leads to the solution.
As is also the case with humans, resistance exists amongst those dominant races. Here again, appearance will not be enough to tell the dominator from the ally. At your current state of psychism, it is extremely difficult for you to distinguish between them. In addition to your intuition, training will be necessary when the time has come.
Being aware of the priceless value of free will, we are inviting you to an alternative.
What can we offer?
We can offer you a more holistic vision of the universe and of life, constructive interactions, the experience of fair and fraternal relationships, liberating technical knowledge, eradication of suffering, controlled exercise of individual powers, the access to new forms of energy and, finally, a better comprehension of consciousness.
We cannot help you overcome your individual and collective fears, or bring you laws that you would not have chosen, work on your own selves, individual and collective effort to build the world you desire, the spirit of quest to new skies.
What would we receive?
Should you decide that such a contact takes place, we would rejoice over the safeguarding of fraternal equilibrium in this region of the universe, fruitful diplomatic exchanges, and the intense Joy of knowing that you are united to accomplish what you are capable of. The feeling of Joy is strongly sought in the universe for its energy is divine.
What is the question we ask you?
“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”
How to can you answer this question?
The truth of soul can be read by telepathy. You only need to clearly ask yourself this question and give your answer as clearly, on your own or in a group, as you wish. Being in the heart of a city or in the middle of a desert does not impact the efficiency of your answer, YES or NO, IMMEDIATELY AFTER ASKING THE QUESTION! Just do it as if you were speaking to yourself but thinking about the message.
This is a universal question and these mere few words, put in their context, have a powerful meaning. You should not let hesitation in the way. This is why you should calmly think about it, in all conscience. In order to perfectly associate your answer with the question, it is recommended that you answer right after another reading of this message.
Do not rush to answer. Breathe and let all the power of your own free will penetrate you. Be proud of what you are! The problems that you may have weaken you. Forget about them for a few minutes to be you. Feel the force that springs up in you. You are in control of yourselves!
A single thought, a single answer can drastically change your near future, in one way as in another.
Your individual decision of asking in your inner self that we show up on your material plan and in broad daylight is precious and essential to us.
Even though you can choose the way that best suits you, rituals are essentially useless. A sincere request made with your heart and your own will always be perceived by those of us whom it is sent to.
In your own private polling booth of your secret will, you will determine the future.
What is the lever effect?
This decision should be made by the greatest number among you, even though it might seem like a minority. It is recommended to spread this message, in all envisageable fashions, in as many languages as possible, to those around you, whether or not they seem receptive to this new vision of the future.
Do it using in a humorous tone or derision if that can help you. You can even openly and publicly make fun of it if it makes you feel more comfortable but do not be indifferent for at least you will have exercised your free will.
Forget about the false prophets and the beliefs that have been transmitted to you about us. This request is one of the most intimate that can be asked to you.
Making a decision by yourself, as an individual, is your right as well as your responsibility!
Passivity only leads to the absence of freedom. Similarly, indecision is never efficient. If you really want to cling to your beliefs, which is something that we understand, then say NO. If you do not know what to choose, do not say YES because of mere curiosity. This is not a show, this is real daily life, WE ARE ALIVE !And living!
Your history has plenty of episodes when determined men and women were able to influence the thread of events in spite of their small number.
Just like a small number is enough to take temporal power on Earth and influence the future of the majority, a small number of you can radically change your fate as an answer to the impotence in face of so much inertia and hurdles! You can ease the mankind’s birth to Brotherhood.
One of your thinkers once said: “Give me a hand-hold and I’ll raise the Earth”.
Spreading this message will then be the hand-hold to strengthen, we will be the light-years long lever, you will be the craftsmen to … raise the Earth as a consequence of our appearance.
What would be the consequences of a positive decision?
For us, the immediate consequence of a collective favorable decision would be the materialization of many ships, in your sky and on Earth.
For you, the direct effect would be the rapid abandoning of many certitudes and beliefs.
A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions on your future. Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved for ever, in all fields of activity. Power would become individual because you would see for yourself that we are living. Concretely, you would change the scale of your values!
The most important thing for us is that humankind would form a single family in front of this “unknown” we would represent!
Danger would slowly melt away from your homes because you would indirectly force the undesirable ones, those we name the “third party”, to show up and vanish. You would all bear the same name and share the same roots: Mankind!
Later on, peaceful and respectful exchanges would be thus possible if such is your wish. For now, he who is hungry cannot smile; he who is fearful cannot welcome us. We are sad to see men, women and children suffering to such a degree in their flesh and in their hearts when they bear such an inner light.
This light can be your future. Our relationships could be progressive.
Several stages of several years or decades would occur: demonstrative appearance of our ships, physical appearance beside human beings, and collaboration in your technical and spiritual evolution, discovery of parts of the galaxy.
Every time, new choices would be offered to you. You would then decide by yourself to cross new stages if you think it necessary to your external and inner well-being. No interference would be decided upon unilaterally. We would leave as soon as you would collectively wish that we do.
Depending upon the speed to spread the message across the world, several weeks, or even several months will be necessary before our “great appearance”, if such is the decision made by the majority of those who will have used their capacity to choose, and if this message receives the necessary support.
The main difference between your daily prayers to entities of a strictly spiritual nature and your current decision is extremely simple. We are technically equipped to materialize!
Why such a historical dilemma?
We know that “foreigners” are considered as enemies as long as they embody the “unknown”. In a first stage, the emotion that our appearance will generate will strengthen your relationships on a worldwide scale.
How could you know whether our arrival is the consequence of your collective choice? For the simple reason that we would have otherwise been already there for a long time at your level of existence! If we are not there yet, it is because you have not made such a decision explicitly.
Some among you might think that we would make you believe in a deliberate choice of yours so as to legitimate our arrival, though this would not be true. What interest would we have to openly offer you what you haven’t got any access to yet, for the benefit of the greatest number of you?
How could you be certain that this is not yet another subtle maneuver of the “third party” to better enslave you? Because one always more efficiently fights something that is identified than the contrary. Isn’t the terrorism that corrodes you a blatant example?
Whatever, you are the sole judge in your own heart and soul ! Whatever your choice, it would be respectable and respected! In the absence of human representatives who could potentially seduce into error you ignore everything about us as well as from about those who manipulate you without your consent.
In your situation, the precautionary principle that consists in not trying to discover us does no longer prevail. You are already in the Pandora’s Box that the “third party” has created around you. Whatever your decision may be you will have to get out of it.
In the face of such a dilemma, one ignorance against another, you need to ask your intuition. Do you want to see us with your own eyes, or simply believe what your thinkers say? That is the real question!
After thousands of years, one day, this choice was going to be inevitable: choosing between two unknowns.
Why spread such a message among yourselves?
Translate and spread this message widely. This action will affect your future in an irreversible and historical way at the scale of millenniums, otherwise, it will postpone a new opportunity to choose to several years later, at least one generation, if it can survive.
Not choosing stands for undergoing other people’s choice. Not informing others stands for running the risk of obtaining a result that is contrary to one’s expectations. Remaining indifferent means giving up one’s free will.
It is all about your future. It is all about your evolution.
It is possible that this invitation does not receive your collective assent and that, because of a lack of information, it will be disregarded. Nevertheless no individual desire goes unheeded in the universe.
Imagine our arrival tomorrow, thousands of ships, and a unique cultural shock in mankind’s history today. It will then be too late to regret about not making a choice and spreading the message because this discovery will be irreversible. We do insist that you do not rush into it, but do think about it! And decide!
The big medias will not be necessarily be interested in spreading this message. It is therefore your task, as an anonymous yet an extraordinary thinking and loving being, to transmit it.
You are still the architects of your own fate…

The three-man crew spotted an unusual object in the sky above St Athan on 8 June in the Vale of Glamorgan.
It made headlines around the world but it was only when newlyweds Lucy and Lyn Thomas saw reports on honeymoon that they realised what could have happened. The lanterns were lit in Cowbridge and floated off towards St Athan, close to an RAF base and Cardiff airport.
Guests at the wedding made a wish before each glow lantern was lit.
"There's no doubt in my mind it was our lanterns," said Mr Thomas, 30, a salesman from Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan.
"We went on the internet on our honeymoon in Turkey and saw a report about this UFO. I thought, 'oh no, it was exactly the same time and I remember they were going straight towards St Athan way'."
Lyn Thomas on the glow lanterns
"You can't judge their size in the air because they're so bright. They just look like
a big ball of light. When you light them they just go up and up and up"
The couple first saw the glow lanterns at the Glastonbury festival last year and thought they would make an ideal alternative to fireworks for their "mini festival" wedding party for 150 guests in a field near Cowbridge.
Mr Thomas bought 100 lanterns on an internet auction site and set off about 30 - with guests making wishes - from about 2300 GMT on 7 June until 0200 GMT on 8 June.
"I can see how they'd look like UFOs. They are about 2ft 6in (0.79m) high and are paper lanterns with a wax ball underneath.
"You light them and they inflate and float off - exactly the same principal as a hot air balloon," said Mr Thomas, who said he checked aviation regulations and made sure the lanterns were set off five miles away from Cardiff International Airport.
"You can't judge their size [in the air] because they're so bright. They just look like a big ball of light. When you light them they just go up and up and up.
"Strangely enough we saw them in Glastonbury last year and sat there
for hours trying to figure out what they were."
Once lit, some of the glow lanterns floated off towards St Athan.
He said he could not believe the coverage the UFO sighting had had in the media.
"It's just gone mad," he added.
"But everyone we've spoken to since said there's no doubt that they [the lanterns] were what they spotted."
Wedding guest Geraint James, from Llantwit Major, said he did not think about the connection between the lanterns and the UFO sightings until his newlywed friends rang him on Tuesday after returning from their honeymoon.
"They rang me and said 'do you realise that was probably us?' It was the exact time we set them off," he said.
"A few people had said they looked like UFOs, kind of spooky as they floated off.
"I read about the UFO on the BBC website and saw it had had coverage in India and in the New York Times. It made us laugh. I suppose this sheds a bit of light."
The police helicopter crew reported seeing the UFO at about 0040 BST on 8 June but could not capture any images before the object vanished over the Bristol Channel.
South Wales Police said the helicopter did not give chase and described the crew as very experienced. The sighting has been reported for investigation.
