The Reality of UFOs May Be Hiding in Plain Sight

Yes. I saw. A UFO.

No, I’ve never been abducted or know anyone who has. But the recent 7.1 jolt of an earthquake in SoCal in July, reminded me of being shaken out of my sleep by the 6.7 Northridge quake in 1994. Five of us moved quickly outside our various bedrooms in the castle home in Beachwood Canyon and were still shaking by the event. Then we were further taken aback by a sight we all witnessed just a minute after the quake subsided. Looking north to the dark but clear night sky above the Hollywood sign, we all saw a very bright white light moving very quickly and silently east across our view. It then did a surprisingly smooth turn back the other way, like around the curve of a giant paper clip, and soon headed west for several more seconds. Before it just silently vanished.

We kid. You. Not.

My filmmaker friend Stephen Zoller also doesn’t have any abduction encounters although an event in his childhood inspired him to begin a lifelong research into UFO or AAV (Advanced Aerospace Vehicle) activity. As his family crossed the Midwest in 1965, young Zoller observed a saucer shaped object whiz by with blinding speed. Known for having a vivid imagination, Zoller’s “sighting” only provoked laughter. Years later, however, while attending the University of Toronto, he uncovered an old magazine with a photo of a UFO dated 1965 in Indiana. Maybe, he wasn’t daydreaming after all, so he devoured anything he could about UFOS, including reading about the Barney and Betty Hill incident.

Sightings and subsequent reports in mainstream media, from Sixty Minutes to the New York Times, are increasing. And, Area 51 continues to provoke conversations.

Not U.S. Vehicles

Moreover, a new History channel series, “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” interviews several former military employees and scientists who have officially investigated these events. Chris Mellon, former senior Defense department employee, suggests: “My hope is make a serious effort to acquire and analyze data which could tell us whether this UFO issue does involves some other civilization or reveals a breakthrough of adversaries or even allies…Evidence suggests these are not U.S. vehicles…(and) it’s inexcusable we don’t make the effort to answer such a profound question.”

So, here are some provocative but enlightening thoughts that filmmaker Zoller has about UFO/AAVs. He also created these wonderful, accompanying graphic depictions of what these encounters would be like:

So, if not Little Green Men then what?
