At 9:15am on January 3, 1975, Sr. Francisco Moreno was on the second floor of a borrowed cottage reading a novel when his attention was called to a buzzing sound outside his window. He looked out the window and saw a dark gray sombrero-shaped object hovering in the sky. After he remembered his camera was in the room downstairs, he shouted to his wife and daughter to come up and bring the camera with them. He was able two take two pictures of the object before it flew away.

1975-01-05; USA, Illinois, Brownstown


Category: UFO Photo




On the afternoon of January 5, 1975, 14 year old [ name removed per request ] was tramping through a wooded area on his father's farm some three miles south of town in that rural neighborhood. He had his camera along hoping to get some nature pictures, and had taken one of a clump of flowers fairly close and was looking for more. It was near mid-afternoon at the time when he heard a sudden sound like a big electric motor. He turned in the direction it was coming from and was astonished to see a dark disc form moving slowly, fading out to a dark fuzzy haze around its edges. When he overcame his initial surprise at its appearance he remembered his camera and started snapping photographs as fast as he could in his fumbling excitement. It hovered only a moment and then sped off in a westerly direction. In the short time it was present he managed to get five pictures on film.


He said "I had an interesting visit from 2 gentlemen (something akin to MIB?) who took possession of my negatives and they were never returned."



The photos and story [here] were debunked in the Vandalia (IL) Leader-Union newspaper. David glued two paper plates together and perpetrated the hoax as a teen wanting attention. His reputation was trashed -- an extremely difficult thing to recover in a small village such as Brownstown.


Isn't there enough truth regarding UFOs to forgo publicizing proven hoaxes? Please reconsider your post.



I went to school with [ name removed per request ] (I'm two years younger than he) and remember the incident. I know the Leader-Union did a bit of "investigation" -- well, as investigative as a small newspaper could be -- and unearthed the hoax.


Please allow me to do a bit of research so that I can scan the newspaper clippings and get them to you. Thanks for being open to the truth. I promise I will get the evidence to you as soon as possible. When you receive it, feel free to use my e-mail response on the site.

Category: UFO Photo




On March 8, 1975 in Ober-Sadelegg, Switzerland, Eduard J. Meier was telepathically summoned to bring his camera to a contact with UFO's. Ten short rings on his phone confirmed the communication. After riding his moped to an unknown location, he took several rolls of pictures of a disc-shaped object flying back and forth across the sky.





1975-03-18; Canada, Ontario, Hamilton


Category: UFO Photo




An anonymous witness near Hamilton--on Lake Ontario, photographed this object which resembles a huge Mexican hat called a sombrero. This UFO may be of the same type that was witnessed hovering above Centeno, Argentina two years later.





1975-03-18; Canada, Ontario, Waterdown


Category: UFO Photo




At 1:30pm on March 18, 1975, 19 year old Patric McCarthy had gone to an abandoned quarry to try to photograph some wild birds. He had poked around in the desolate area for some time and was just starting to walk back when suddenly he saw a massive circular object in the sky. With camera in hand he started taking pictures as fast as he could.



You showed a siting by Pat McCarthy. I remember this because he was a friend of mine and I remember the day it happened to him. The place he saw the siting was very close to where I used to live as a child and there is phenomena around that area. I have seen it. I was looking him up on the web when I came across the picture that he took and I remember how scared he was about what he saw there at the quarry. It was years ago (75). He was a runner then and I believe wanted to be in something like the Boston Marathon and would run long distances. I believe that what he saw was real. I know. I hope he is okay today since I have not seen him in years.

1975-05-00; Japan, Kyoto City


Category: UFO Photo




In May of 1975, the president of a local company snapped a picture of his young daughter in the backyard of his home in Kyoto City. When the prints came back from the developer, he was surprised to see on one print, above the girl's head, a dim greenish ball of light surrounded by a dimmer halo in the sky. The object was clearly beyond the telephone wires on the far side of the yard. An examination of the negative and print by experts revealed no film or processing defect, and no evidence of tampering with the negative.

His teenage son witnessed the incident.







1975-06-12; Switzerland, Berg / Rumlikon


Category: UFO Photo



In the morning of June 12, 1975, Eduard J. Meier was telepathically alerted and guided to another contact, again being advised that his camera would be permitted. This time he was led around on his moped for over an hour, finally stopping on a dirt service road beyond a field along the paved road from Theilingen to Rumlikon, Between Berg and Rumlikon. He was carrying a loaned 8mm movie camera and tripod as well as his 35mm camera and another 35mm belonging to a friend, because his own camera still had a jammed focus adjustment and a broken viewer. He set up the tripod and mounted the movie camera on it. He readied the 35mm cameras and laid them out in readiness. Then he spotted the spacecraft approaching in the haze in the far distance. After taking a picture of the object he noticed another identical ship higher in the sky, evidently to protect the one posing at low altitude.



This UFO was observed in Berg-Rumlikon, Switzerland on June 12th, 1975 at 10:30am. A second variation seven meter diameter disc-shaped craft approached in front of an 8mm movie camera running on automatic as this picture was made. In this case, we uniquely have simultaneous still and moving pictures of the same craft at the same time in flight. This photo is one of more than a dozen pictures snapped during that approach sequence.

Category: UFO Photo




Members of a hunting party spotted this craft hovering low near the ground. It moved almost silently through the surrounding trees. Fortunately, one member was able to snap this photograph of the object.

Category: UFO Photo




On the 24th of August, 1975 at 2:00pm in Takamatsu City, Japan, Masahiro Fujikawa, a high school student working a telescope on the verandah of his home, noticed a flash in the sky above the Saitokuji Temple nearby. He quickly snapped a picture with a pocket camera as the object curved down in his direction and then zoomed away into the afternoon sky.







1975-09-03; Japan, Aichi, Nagoay City


Category: UFO Photo




At 2:30pm on September 3, 1975, 12 year old Hirohito Tanaka was doing his homework in the living room of his house in Nagoya City. He happened to look up and out the big picture window and saw something flying high in the sky above the scattered clouds that day. Looking closer, he could see that it was a very unusual flying machine, dark and cigar-shaped. He obtained a camera and quickly snapped 8 photographs of the cylindrical ship that was launching and recovering smaller circular domed disc-shaped machines, some of which came down and flew low over the city.







1975-10-04; Japan, Aichi, Nagoay City


Category: UFO Photo




At 2:00pm on October 4, 1975, high school student Hirohito Tanaka watched a small bell-shaped flying object descend to near ground level in a "falling-leaf" kind of motion. It left a trail of white vapor or exhaust in its wake as it flew. Near the ground it steadied, levelled off, and flew away horizontally until it was out of sight. He grabbed his camera and ran to the balcony where he managed to snap several black and white photographs of the ship. When the white trail drifted to the ground it was found to consist of spider-wep-like filiamentary substance that evaporated away in a few minutes. The white material seemed to be ejected from the top part of the small ship.





1975-10-07; Canada, Ontario, Bracebridge


Category: UFO Landing


On October 7, 1975, a 27-year old carpenter, Robert Suffern, of Bracebridge, Ontario, got a call from his sister who had seen a "fiery glow" near his barn and concluded it was on fire.


Suffern drove to the spot and, after determining that there was no problem, got back on the road. There, he would testify, he encountered a large disc-shaped object resting in his path.


"I was scared," he said. "It was right there in front of me with no lights and no sign of life." But even before his car could come to a complete stop, the object abruptly ascended out of sight. Suffern turned his car around and decided to head home rather than to his sister's place, his original intended destination.


At that point a small figure wearing a helmet and a silver-gray suit stepped in front of the car, causing Suffern to hit the brakes and skid to a stop. The figure ran into a field. Then, according to Suffern, "when he got to the fence, he put his hands on a post and went over it with no effort at all. It was like he was weightless" (UFOIL, n.d.).






1975-11-05; USA, Arizona, Heber


Category: Abduction


On the 5th November 1975 Mike Rogers and his crew of 6 forestry workers were traveling back in their truck from work to the forest of Heber, Arizona when Alan Dalis, one of the crew members spotted a large glow coming from above a group of trees.


As they got closer they noticed a disk hovering about 20 feet above the ground. They stopped the truck to take a closer look when one of the crew jumped out to get an even closer look. Travis Walton was approaching the object when it started to make a strange noise and before the rest of the crew could do anything a large beam of light struck Travis which sent him tumbling backwards.


At this point Mike Rodgers, the driver, panicked and drove the truck away. After a short distance the men forced Mike to drive back to collect their fellow worker. When they returned there was no sign of the object or of Travis.


A police investigation started as soon as the men reported what had happened, and an extensive search was carried out of the abduction area. Many people believed that the men had murdered Travis and used the UFO as a cover story.


The men requested that they take a lie detector test to try and clear their names. The first polygraph test was inconclusive, however, a second, indicated that they were telling the truth about what they had witnessed.


On November 10th, 5 days after the abduction, Travis's brother-in-law received a phone call from Travis and they went to pick him up a few miles outside of Heber. When they found him he was naked, distraught and confused.


Soon afterwards he began to recall the events of the past few days. He told a story of aliens who were about 5 feet tall with domed hairless heads, large eyes, tiny ears and nose, and a slit for a mouth who performed various 'experiments' on him.


He also reported many other strange events such as seeing an 'almost' human entity who showed him around but did not answer his questions, and also of a control room where he could see through the exterior of the craft a gaze at the stars.
