In the 1960’s, my father was in the Air Force and stationed at Malmstom AFB in Montana. while he was there they experienced several incidents that was believed to involve unidentified flying objects. I recently emailed him about this and this is what he wrote back :
" I was at Malmstom AFB in Montana. And yes it was a base that was responsible for the Minutemen Missiles. I was working on the Air Defense Computers, the system was called SAGE. This system/base was responsible for the Northern air space of the US."
"Yes there were numerous incidents with UFOs there and at the radar stations that reported in to the SAGE Center. I was on duty for quite a few of those incidents. A couple of times I was listening to the events as they unfolded. What really happened is that there was activity around the silos that involved unknown aircraft that moved like nothing we or the Russians had. I was at the radar consoles during some of the tracking too. All the systems got activated when that happened. But nothing ever launched because the ufos would leave so fast and then there was no sign of them anywhere and our systems covered thousands of miles all around us."
this is a picture of a strange structure at the edge of the Lobachevsky crater taken during the Apollo 17 moon mission in 1972 . It is NASA image AS17-150-23085. What is it? who built it? why is it there?
In the late 60’s and early 70’s, NASA produced a series of documentaries for all the APOLLO moon missions. The picture above is a screen capture from the documentary “On The Shoulder Of Giants” about the APOLLO 17 moon mission in 1972. It is kind of hard to see but if you look in the upper left hand corner you can see some sort of a structure sticking up behind the hill. We’ve adjusted the contrast and zoomed in on this tower-like object in the other photos here to better see this thing. Numerous ex-NASA employees have reported that they have found structures and towers at least a mile high on the moon but NASA would ‘smudge’ the objects in the photos before being released to the public. This structure looks very much like some sort of tower.
This screen capture was from film taken from the lunar rover, outside the lunar module so it can’t be a reflection. This object also can not be seen in the original version of the documentary but once ‘cleaned up’ and presented in HD with better contrast, the object is now visible.
Just what is it? Who constructed it? We are not sure, but after checking with our research department, we found no info on this thing so TINFOILANDTAR will take credit for discovering this ‘anomaly’ (patting ourselves on the back!)
It’s the most popular file in the FBI Vault — high-tech electronic reading room housing various Bureau records released under the Freedom of Information Act. Over the past two years, this file has been viewed nearly a million times. Yet, it is only a single page, relaying an unconfirmed report that the FBI never even followed up on.
The file in question is a memo dated March 22, 1950—63 years ago last week. It was authored by Guy Hottel, then head of our field office in Washington, D.C. (see sidebar below for a brief biography). Like all memos to FBI Headquarters at that time, it was addressed to Director J. Edgar Hoover and recorded and indexed in FBI records.
The subject of the memo was anything but ordinary. It related a story told to one of our agents by a third party who said an Air Force investigator had reported that three “flying saucers” were recovered in New Mexico. The memo provided the following detail:
“They [the saucers] were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only three feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.”
After relaying an informant’s claim that the saucers had been found because the government’s “high-powered radar” in the area had interfered with “the controlling mechanism of the saucers,” the memo ends simply by saying that “[n]o further evaluation was attempted” concerning the matter by the FBI agent.
That might have been the end of this particular story, just another informational dead end in the FBI files. But when we launched the Vault in April 2011, some media outlets noticed the Hottel memo and erroneously reported that the FBI had posted proof of a UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico and the recovery of wreckage and alien corpses. The resulting stories went viral, and traffic to the new Vault soared.
