An Air Force major is ordered to approach a brilliant UFO in his Phantom jet over Tehran. He repeatedly attempts to engage and fire on unusual objects heading right toward his aircraft, but his missile control is locked and disabled. Witnessed from the ground, this dogfight becomes the subject of a secret report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. In Belgium, an Air Force colonel investigates a series of widespread sightings of unidentified triangular objects, sending F-16s to attempt a closer look. Hundreds of eyewitnesses, including on-duty police officers, file reports about the incident, and a spectacular photograph of an unidentifiable craft is retrieved and analyzed. Here at home, a retired chief of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Accidents and Investigations Division reveals the agency’s response to a 30-minute encounter between an aircraft and a gigantic UFO over Alaska, which occurred during his watch and is documented on radar. Now all three of these distinguished men have written breathtaking, firsthand accounts about these extraordinary incidents. They are joined by Air Force generals and a host of high-level sources who have agreed to write their own detailed, personal stories about UFO encounters and investigations for the first time. They are coming forward now because of Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter who has spent the last 10 years studying the still unexplained UFO phenomenon. Kean reviewed hundreds of government documents, aviation reports, radar data, and case studies with corroborating physical evidence. With the support of former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, Kean draws on her research to separate fact from fiction and to lift the veil on decades of U.S. government misinformation. Throughout, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects - metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics - actually exist. 1.

The UFO enigma has been part of our culture since the 1940s and is building to a worldwide explosion of acceptance today. Now, as governments around the world open their files and records on internal UFO investigations, the US remains steadfast in its denial of interest in the UFO issue. As more of the world´s population accepts the possibility of an extraterrestrial presence, the demand is building for disclosure from the United States. Using newly declassified and Freedom of Information Act documents, eyewitness accounts, interviews, and leaked documents being authenticated, The Presidents and UFOs details the secret history of UFOs and the corresponding presidential administrations. Starting in 1941 with the Roosevelt administration, author Larry Holcombe examines the startling discoveries facing a president preoccupied by WWII, the explosion of UFO sightings during the Truman years, first contact during the Eisenhower administration, and the possibility of a UFO connection to the Kennedy assassination. In 1975, the Nixon administration came very close to admitting that UFOs exist by funding a documentary by Robert Emenegger. Almost 40 years later, this book will examine Emenegger´s findings. For the first time, the involvement of all of the modern presidents up to and including President Obama, and the rise and then fall of their influence on UFO issues, are told in one story that is an integral part of the fascinating UFO tapestry.

In this hour, are we alone in the universe? Almost certainly not. For thousands of years, humans have wondered who and what might live beyond the confines of our planet. Now, a generation of out-of-the-box scientists are using everything in the world’s toolbox to develop the new science of astrobiology and bring us to the edge of the biggest breakthrough since Copernicus and Galileo. Science writer Marc Kaufman gives us an overview.Next, investigative journalist Leslie Kean talks to Jim Fleming about her book, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. As Kean writes, 95 per cent of all reported UFO sightings can be explained as ordinary phenomena. But the remaining five percent includes UFO events that have been well-documented and officially investigated.Then, are we alone in the universe? Astronomer Dimitar Sasselov is leading the hunt for ´´super-Earths´´ -- rocky planets like our own that orbit other stars. He and his colleagues believe it´s only a matter of time before they discover a super-Earth that is not only habitable, but home to some form of life. He explains that the search for extraterrestrial life takes to forms: planet hunting, and the creation of the world´s first artificial cells.After that, Guy Consolmagno is an American planetary researcher and a Jesuit priest. He´s the curator of one of the world´s great collections of meteorites, at the Vatican Observatory. He gets a lot of questions about how he can be both a priest and a scientist. Luckily, he has a sense of humor about it -- witness a recent appearance on the Colbert Report -- and believes science and religion can work together.And finally, what if we find life on another planet? What will we do next? Science fiction writer Orson Scott Card has thought extensively about the politics and ethics of first contacts. His award-winning classic, Ender´s Game lays out a few possibilities. He´s just published a new addition to t... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

A former astronaut recently went on record to allege that there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted by alien races and that these civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time. These claims also state that the alien creatures´ appearance is bizarre compared to any type of traditional Western point of view, that these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, and that they use ´´toroids´´, corotating magnetic disks, for their propulsion systems. In addition, the recent discovery of 1,300 exoplanets that could sustain life has rocked the scientific world. Now more and more people, from world leaders to former astronauts, are testifying not only that UFOs exist but that aliens are here and have been monitoring the human race for centuries. 1.

Nick Pope worked for the British Ministry of Defense (the MOD) for 21 years. He became known as the Fox Mulder of Great Britain due to his ´´special position´´ as the chief UFO investigator. He has written four highly successful books on UFOs and has appeared on television and radio all over the world. In fact, Nick Pope is probably one of the best-known UFO investigators on the planet. And yet, he is the only official UFO investigator employed by the British government to ever go on record. In this interview, conducted by Michael Bourne, Nick Pope (for the first time since leaving the MOD) goes on the record and spells out his beliefs and opinions, and reveals the scope of his incredible insider knowledge. 1.

We are not alone. And we never have been.... For years we´ve been taught that human progress has been a long, slow climb from the primordial ooze to hunter-gatherers to empires. But what if that´s only part of the story? Best-selling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs, who has investigated the recent financial crisis, the JFK assassination, and the national socialist takeover of America, now takes on his biggest subject: the history of mankind. Offering mind-blowing information that will radically alter the way we think about the world and our place in it, Marrs goes beyond the revelations of his classic Alien Agenda, interweaving science and authentic archaeological finds with provocative speculation to show how human civilization may have originated with nonhumans who visited Earth eons ago...and may still be here today. Our Occulted History overturns conventional knowledge and beliefs, presenting compelling evidence that the Earth once hosted prehistoric civilizations using technologies that very well may have surpassed our own. Sound unbelievable? Just a few hundred years ago, so was the concept that the Earth revolved around the sun. Marrs sifts through the historical, scientific, and cultural record, showing how numerous ancient texts and tablets tell of visitors from the stars colonizing the earth. From the flying vimanas of the Hindu Vedic literature and the flying shields reported by the Romans to the mysterious airships of the 1800s and the UFOs of today, he argues that someone other than us is still present on this planet. But are these visitors simply observers - or do they play a much more active and controlling role? Jim Marrs raises this shocking question and more in the provocative and persuasive Our Occulted History. The truth is out there...and in here. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Courvoisier.

This is the first ever reprint of the book that brought the entire legend of the Philadelphia Experiment into the public sphere, and created controversy for decades: The Case for the UFO! Why has this book been suppressed for so many years? It is a well-reasoned review of the UFO record by an eminent astromomer, mathematician, and archaeologist, Dr. M.K. Jessup. His conclusions are breathtaking and incredible, but inescapable. Description from the original dust jacket: Flying saucers are not new! For thousands of years, men have seen mysterious objects in the skies. Now, a prominent scientists proves that unidentified flying objects originate here, on Earth. If you have ever wondered about the things today´s scientists do not, will not, or cannot explain, this audiobook is for you. Such questions might be: What is the hidden meaning of the comet´s tail? What caused the ´´Devil´s Footprints” of Devonshire? Why are we wrong to think of space flight only in terms of rocket power? How was a soldier ´´teleported” from the Phillippine Islands to Mexico City within one hour? What force lifted 1200-ton stones in ancient Peru? How is acceleration achieved by UFOs? What caused the disappearance of the crews of the SS Sea Bird and the Marie Celeste? Was the ´´secret” of space flight known 50,000 years ago? What is the strange truth hidden in the ancient ruins of Baalbek? And finally, and most importantly: Are the UFOs friend, or foe? This is the original edition of The Case for the UFO, which does not include the scrawled ´´annotations” of the infamous Carlos Allende (who may or may not have tormented Jessup into committing suicide). You will find this version much easier to understand than the Varo Edition, and probably much more meaningful. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Chekijian.

There is a clear conspiracy to deny the existence of UFOs. The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the US government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks. Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers examines the wealth of archival documents that clearly demonstrate this cooperative disinformation effort and refute the false claims made by these professional scoffers. Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden set the record straight by examining politically motivated misinformation and presenting compelling evidence that separates fact from fiction. 1.
