UFO Memo Is FBI’s ‘Most Wanted’ Record
The FBI says its most viewed public record is a memo from 1950 recounting a strange story someone told an agent about three “flying saucers” that were allegedly recovered in New Mexico.
The so-called Hottel memo was first released in the late 1970s under the Freedom of Information Act, but it’s been viewed nearly a million times since 2011, when the FBI launched an online database of public records called the Vault.
Dated March 22, 1950, the memo was addressed to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and written by Guy Hottel, then head of the Bureau’s field office in Washington, D.C. Hottel was reporting what an Air Force investigator said that someone else told him about the crashed saucers.
The following details of the report have perhaps fueled the hopes of those who want to believe: “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.”
For the record, FBI officials said in a statement on Monday (March 25) that the Hottel memo “does not prove the existence of UFOs; it is simply a second- or third-hand claim that we never investigated.”
Bureau officials also say there is no reason to believe that the story has anything to do with the infamous 1947 Roswell crash in New Mexico. Hoover did actually order his agentsto verify any UFO sightings after the Roswell incident and until July 1950. That the Hottel report was never investigated suggests “our Washington Field Office didn’t think enough of that flying saucer story to look into it,” the FBI statement says.
Light Being Phenomenon Photographed on Mars? 2013
Light Being Phenomenon Photographed on Mars? 2013
This strange object is caused due to overexposure of the camera, shutter error, reflection, or the camera has recorded an unexplained phenomenon.
Anyhow, it almost looks like the being has something on his back. It could be advanced technology that allows him to project himself as a light being to different planets or dimensions?

another view from ISS,
I was looking at the live nasa cam that shows the ISS and got lucky and caught a UFO in the distance that was matching speed with the space station. This UFO was only visible for about two minutes. Live cams are a great resource for UFO hunters. Try it some time, you may be surprised what you find. This video was made by me, Scott C. Waring of UFO Sightings Daily.
Two UFO Seen Near NASA Space Station On March 5, 2013
I was watching the ISS live cam and caught these two UFOs near the ISS. I am sorry the second clip is short. I actually saw it moving across the screen but I had a parent of a student call me for me to write an emergency email for her son in a US university to be sent to the dean. So I missed most of the second one. :(

Asteroid Makes Close Call: 2012 DA14 to Pass Earth Feb. 15
It begins to get on your nerves. Every now and then — a few times a year, depending on what you count — an asteroid goes whizzing past Earth at fairly close range, reminding us that sometimes outer space isn’t quite as, well, spacious as we may like to think.
This month’s visit will be by a fast-moving space rock called 2012 DA14, which will pass about 17,200 miles from Earth’s surface on Feb. 15. It’s only about 150 feet across, so astronomers say not to bother to look for it in the sky — but it will be closer than the communications satellites that ring the planet, 22,000 miles away.
NASA scientists have had a lot of time to plot the orbit of 2012 DA14, and they say they are quite sure it will miss us. There are dust-sized pieces of debris plowing harmlessly into the atmosphere all the time; we see some of them as shooting stars at night. Impacts like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago, are separated by tens of millions of years.
A 330-foot meteor exploded in the atmosphere above the Tunguska River with an impact 1,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. The force was enough to destroy an area the size of San Francisco.
Edward T. Lu is a physicist and former astronaut who flew two space shuttle missions and spent six months on the International Space Station. For skeptics who think asteroid impacts are science fiction, he said, check what happened in Siberia in 1908.
So, say scientists, it’s worth keeping a lookout — and worth paying attention when something the size of 2012 DA14 passes by. The chances that any one object will hit us are very small, but almost inevitably there will be asteroids or comets headed our way, with serious consequences that we may now be able to prevent.”But it has happened and it can happen again,” said Humberto Campins of the University of Central Florida. “So as a species it is important we learn all we can about asteroids in case we have to deflect one. And there are other reasons for us to investigate. Asteroids could provide precious resources both to Earth and to space travelers, and they hold secrets to how our planet and life on it formed.”
Lu now heads the non-profit B612 Foundation, a group dedicated to hunting down asteroids before they hit Earth. B612 wants to launch the first privately funded deep-space mission: Sentinel, a space telescope to orbit the sun and map the inner Solar System in search of asteroids that could smash into Earth.
NASA already watches with ground-based telescopes, but every now and then there’s a surprise — a hunk of rock or metal that passes near Earth without much advance notice.
"For every one we know about, there are about 100 more we don’t know about," Lu said. "We have to find the other 99."
"Once we find an asteroid," he said, "it is possible for us to predict its trajectory. We know the government wants to discover asteroids big enough to wipe out the planet, but we also want to find those that could wipe out a city the size of New York, or Hong Kong, or Houston."
Fifteen years ago, in the movie “Armageddon,” Bruce Willis led a team of roughneck astronauts who tried to blow up a threatening asteroid with a nuclear weapon. Lu and other scientists — even those who spend their careers watching for threats — say the reality would be much less dramatic. If you spot an incoming asteroid well in advance — and that’s the idea behind Sentinel — you just have to nudge it ever so slightly.
Lu and astronaut Stan Love have proposed a space tug, a rocket that would launch to the same orbit as an asteroid threatening to hit the Earth, and push it just enough to make it harmless.
"You don’t have to change much. One hundred thousandth of a mile an hour is enough, 10 years ahead of time, to cause an asteroid to miss the rendezvous with Earth," Lu said.
With this month’s visitor, 2012 DA14, no action will be necessary. Some scientists will use the opportunity to take a relatively close-up look at a passerby; others say to think of it as a sort of shot across our bow.
"We have been given a gift, the ability to protect our planet," Lu said. "We shouldn’t squander it."
