Real UFO sightings and alien encounter has been talked about regularly by both scientists and laymen recently. But the face-off between human beings and aliens may not be that warm, as many people expect

It is probably unwise for human beings to be telling aliens where we are, Nobel laureate Brian P. Schmidt has said.

“I think it is probably not the smartest thing to tell the aliens where we are, as any encounter with aliens may not be a happy one,” Xinhua quoted Schmidt as saying at the 28th General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union currently going on the Chinese capital.

It is probably the closest Australia has come to scrambling fighter jets to  intercept a UFO.

Documents that have just become available under the 30-year rule at the  National Archives of Australia reveal how two RAAF Mirage jets were placed on  the second highest level of alert to determine the cause of unidentified radar  contacts seen on screens at Mascot.

The ”X Files”  viewed in Canberra also give details of other unexplained  sightings, some of which are supported by witness statements to police.

Ontario led the country in sightings, with 406. B.C. and Alberta placed a distant second and third.

There were 81 UFO sightings in Manitoba — 18 of which occurred within Winnipeg.

Edinburgh University offers course on searching for aliens

By Eddie Wrenn

Edinburgh University is planning to enroll thousands of students this month on a course to learn how to search for aliens.

The university has joined some of America’s top institutions in launching a series of free online courses – including an Introduction to Astrobiology and the Search for Extra-terrestrial Life.

The course will discuss such questions as: what are the possibilities for intelligent life elsewhere? How would society deal with contact with aliens, and who would represent Earth?

Hopefully the course may also teach the basics of photography so that future tales of close encounters are not accompanied by blurry, out-of-focus shots of dots in the sky.

UFO sighting have been reported in dozens of locations across Britain, with   silver suited “faceless humanoids” in West Wales and suspicious-looking “men   in black” in Lincolnshire, according to Ministry of Defence documents.

The documents,   published by the National Archives for the first time today, detail a   bizarre list of weird and wonderful alien sightings.

They include abductions, shape-shifting objects at a Chelsea football ground   and one report from a 1950s pilot who said his experience of a “brightly   illuminated object” had been accepted as “quite routine”.

The 6,700 pages of documents, compiled by the Ministry of Defence in relation   to UFOs and extraterrestrials, have now been published online

Not only do more than 80 million Americans believe that UFOs exist, many are not afraid of an alien drop-in, according to a new study.

As part of its new “Chasing UFOs” series, the National Geographic Channel conducted a poll to assess Americans’ views on the paranormal.  The study found that 11% of those polled firmly believed they’d spotted a UFO.

In addition, most of those polls said they would regard a minor alien invasion as only a minor inconvenience.  And most expect the visitors to be “E.T.”-type friendly, according to a news release on the study.

Full Article at http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/25/idUS93061+25-Jun-2012+PRN20120625

UFO researcher Robert Hastings recently addressed The Society for Scientific Exploration’s 31st Annual Conference here. His presentation, “Unexplained Aerial Incursions at Nuclear Weapons Sites Demand a Renewed Scientific Interest in the UFO Phenomenon,” examined declassified U.S. government documents confirming ongoing UFO activity at American nukes-related facilities since 1948.

In September 2010, Hastings’ “UFOs and Nukes” press conference drew worldwide media coverage when seven U.S. Air Force veterans revealed dramatic incidents during which several ICBMs mysteriously malfunctioned just as disc-shaped craft were observed hovering near them.
