UFO Hotspot: South Carolina

South Carolina has seen a boom in UFO sightings in recent months.  Multiple, unidentified objects have been observed during both day and nighttime hours.  Even more impressive, the objects have now been seen by hundreds of witnesses.

North Myrtle Beach resident Joe Kiernan has shot footage of strange lights and objects on several occasions.  His latest video, captured at around eight PM on August 26, 2012, shows a series of orange lights hovering over the ocean.  Kiernan shot his film while standing on the beach that evening.  Hundreds of other witnesses also observed the strange lights.
Kiernan's video also shows a smaller object traveling rapidly and then disappearing under the bright lights of the large object.

This is not an isolated incident either.  Numerous accounts have come in over the summer of people observing unusual craft in South Carolina.

Is this military activity?  Some kind of atmospheric anomaly?  Or is there another, alien explanation?
The significance of multiple sightings by so many witnesses makes this a fascinating case.  Both the videos and the sightings need closer investigation.

Kiernan's videos can be seen here:

Peter Robbins On Rendlesham Forest

Back in July, I wrote a post about listening to my friend Peter Robbins speak in Arizona.  Peter, along with co-author, Larry Warren, wrote the amazing 'Left At East Gate A First-Hand Account of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, Its Cover-up, and Investigation'.  The book chronicles the incredible events that occurred in the Rendlesham Forest area of England in 1980.

This case, often referred to as Britain's Roswell, is one of the most impressive encounters in Ufology.  Over thirty years later, there are still more questions than answers.

Researcher Peter Robbins (whom I've dubbed the nicest man in Ufology) has taken a bold step forward.  With his summer lectures in Arizona, Peter began revealing never before heard details of the Rendlesham case.

My earlier post ( was a bit of a teaser in that I couldn't possibly recount all the information that Peter gave during his several hours of speaking on the case.  Fortunately, Peter has kindly allowed video from the lectures he gave in Phoenix to be posted for everyone to view (See, I told you he was a nice guy).
If you're interested in this case, or Ufology in general, this presentation is not to be missed.

The five segments in this lecture can be found below, they're well worth your time:

Thanks again Peter for your integrity and constant push to get to the truth.  Thanks also to Phoenix Mufon for posting the videos.

Secrets of Skinwalker Ranch

The Uintah Basin ranks as one of the most intense paranormal hot spots in the country.  The region is rich in UFO sightings, hauntings and bizarre beings.  Cryptid encounters range from Bigfoot to Dogman and from giant wolves to phantom cats.  There are even encounters with 'little people' similar to the wee folk of Celtic lore.

Central to the basin's weirdness is the infamous Skinwalker Ranch.  The location was first made famous by journalist Zack Van Eyck who wrote a series of articles about the ranch for the Deseret News.  Later, Las Vegas journalist George Knapp, along with co-author Colm Kelleher further chronicled the strange events on the ranch in a book titled 'Hunt for the Skinwalker' published in 2005.

I've investigated a lot of cases in the Uintah Basin.  They almost always prove to be unusual and especially strange.  It's a rural area, dotted with small towns, ranches, Native American land and national forests.  From a paranormal perspective, it's an area that desperately needs further detailed study and investigation.

Skinwalker ranch itself was purchased by billionaire Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Air and Space.  Since he obtained the property, great effort has been made to keep it locked down and off limits to outsiders.  Staff on the ranch regularly claim there's no unusual activity occurring on the property.  It's a hard line to buy when the grounds are patrolled round the clock by security teams with dogs and the entrances are covered with security cameras.  Bear in mind this is in the middle of nowhere on a country road.

This week I appeared on a special round table episode of 'The Paracast' to discuss the Uintah Basin and the Skinwalker ranch.  Along with hosts Gene Steinberg and Chris O'Brien were myself, ranch expert Ryan Skinner and special guest 'Chip' an insider who revealed, for the first time, inside information about ranch operations.
You simply have to listen to this show just to hear the bombshell that Chip drops on us.
