The Mystery of An Alien Abduction Still Captures the Imagination

• On May 10, 1978, 71-year-old Jan Wolski was driving a horse-drawn carriage home to his farm in the small village of Emilcin in southwest Poland. Suddenly, two small beings with olive skin, webbed hands and slanting eyes appeared next to him and, speaking in a language Wolski didn’t recognise, led him to a small clearing where a white UFO craft, about half the size of a bus, was hovering five metres above the ground.

• Wolski told a pair of journalists shortly after the incident that at this point, “I tied my horse, then got off and went after [the beings] toward that machine. There was a tiny elevator of some kind… [O]ne of [the beings] went up and put his foot inside this craft. I followed him and was rapidly carried up to the entrance of the craft.” “They indicated that I had to undress,” Wolski continued. “Well, when I was partially undressed (above my waist) but then I received an order to undress completely. So I took off my shoes.”

• “One of the beings then appeared in front of me with an appliance in the form of two dishes combined in its hand,” said Wolski. “[The being] held ‘the saucers’ to my front, then turned me around holding my arm slightly. Then he raised my arm up and began to do something at my side with those plates… then from behind and on the other side. Then he indicated that I should get dressed, and as I did this I looked around but there were neither windows nor lights visible.” Wolski was politely let go.

• This is the account that Wolski told friends and family. When word got around and people went to the site of the abduction, they found strange footprints all over the clearing. The flying saucer was nowhere to be found. But a local boy, Adam Popiołek, also saw the alien craft and alerted his mother about a falling plane.

• Shortly after the event, different family members started to fall ill. One of Wolski’s sons, Edward, died in mysterious circumstances three years later – his body was found in a nearby forest. Today, the Wolski farm is abandoned.

• Researchers and journalists have tried to unravel the mystery of Emilcin. Krzysztof Drozd, the author of Emilcin 197 – In Search of Truth, and publicist Bartosz Rdułtowski re-examined all the research documentation and suggested that the case could have been a hoax. There were some inconsistencies in the first investigation, and a tendency to look for confirmation rather than evidence.

• Today, a UFO memorial stands in Emilcin, featuring a cube balanced on a plinth, to commemorate the alien abduction. It still attracts tourists and extraterrestrial enthusiasts. A time capsule is buried next to the monument to be opened in 3011.

Just what happened on May 10, 1978 to 71-year-old Jan Wolski is still a source of intense debate about whether or not it was a close encounter of the third kind.

On that day Wolski was on his way home, driving a horse-drawn carriage. All of a sudden, two small beings with olive skin, webbed hands and slanting eyes apparently appeared next to him and led him to a small clearing, where a UFO was waiting.

Speaking in a language the farmer didn’t recognise, the creatures took him to a white craft which was about half the size of a bus and happened to hovering five metres above the ground. Once inside he was examined by the strange visitors.

Two journalists, Krystyna Adamska and Henryk Pomorski, spoke to Wolski shortly after the extraordinary event. “I tied my horse, then got off and went after them [the beings] toward that machine,” the farmer said in the interview. “There was a tiny elevator of some kind for two people to hold – maybe it couldn’t carry two large people but it surely could slight people… And then one of them went up and put his foot inside this craft. I followed him and was rapidly carried up to the entrance of the craft.

“They indicated that I had to undress,” he continued. “Well, when I was partially undressed (above my waist) but then I received an order to undress completely. So I took off my shoes. One of the beings then appeared in front of me with an appliance in the form of two dishes combined in its hand.

“He held ‘the saucers’ to my front, then turned me around holding my arm slightly.

Then he indicated that I should get dressed, and as I did this I looked around but there were neither windows nor lights visible.”

Yorkshire UK’s Strange Sightings Found in Secret UFO Files

Article by James Campbell                                July 11, 2020                                (hulldailymail.co.uk)

• Over the past few years, Britain’s Ministry of Defence has released many of its UFO files. Historian Mike Covell has summarized some of the reports emanating from Yorkshire in northeastern England.

• In July 1967, citizens in and around East Yorkshire (northeast England) watched a strange light in the sky moving east toward the coastline. The staff on a pirate radio ship off of the coast there also saw the light above their vessel and reported it live on air. Three thousand pirate radio listeners called in to say that they too were watching the UFO.

• In January 1967, residents of Hull in northeast Yorkshire UK reported seeing strange red lights over the city. The red lights were never identified, and were blamed on balloons.

• Also in July 1967, a physicist professor from the University of Hull saw a bright white light land in a field near Welton (in northeast Yorkshire). He felt a vibration and heard a buzzing noise. The intensity of the light was so bright that he had to shield his eyes. Then the object became airborne and headed over the nearby waterway. The sighting remains a mystery.

• In 1975, a saucer-shaped UFO craft reportedly landed on The Oval on Garden Village in Hull, UK. Residents were told that it was a gas explosion and they had to be evacuated. The residents suspected a cover-up, and were told by the military to keep quiet about it. The Ministry of Defence were forced to make a statement denying any cover-up.

• In October 1986, a resident in the Bransholme section of Hull, UK reported seeing a strange half-moon shaped object, much larger than a passenger aircraft, curved on the uppermost section, with a red light on the side, and emitting a white glow. The sighting was reported to the police who referred it to the Ministry of Defence. Twenty witnesses saw the craft move east to west, then back to the east, then hovered and vanished.

• In January 1987, after seeing the bright light vanish, residents of Bransholme reported seeing a bright red circular object which was closely followed by a thick trail of black smoke moving in a westerly direction on a clear evening. Humberside Police took the report and forwarded it to the Ministry of Defence.

• On February 26 1988 at 4am, a Hull resident saw a large craft with red and orange flashing lights flying south during a snowstorm. It too was reported to the Humberside Police.

• On December 10, 1988 at 7:45am, a small aircraft with a ‘glow around it’ was reported to Humberside Police, and was also spotted by two Hessle police officers. It was reported to the Royal Air Force.

• On July 12, 1989, witnesses reported seeing a stationary bright white object which then changed to red and traveled from Hull to nearby Humber. The single craft was then joined by five other lights that began to circle it. It was reported to Humberside Police who forwarded it to the Ministry of Defence.
• On September 5, 1989, a several witnesses saw a bright craft over the village of Keyingham and reported the incident to Humberside Police. At 1:20am, the UFO hovered for twenty minutes, flashing twice per second. It was reported to the Ministry of Defence.

• In November 1996, witnesses saw a series of strange balls of orange light spotted across the city of Hull. The lights weaved in and out of formation, circling each other as they flew from the north to the south. It was reported to the Humberside Police and was blamed on Chinese lanterns.
• In July 1990 just before midnight, a resident of Hessle reported seeing a triangular shaped craft circling over their house for 45 minutes. It had a square rear end and was constantly emitting a bright light as it moved. Then it hovered over their house for thirty minutes before ‘shooting off vertically’. It was reported to Humberside Police who could see the craft on its closed circuit tv. They forwarded it to the Ministry of Defence.

• Over several nights in July 1997, numerous eyewitnesses across Hull reported to Humberside Police seeing a series of silent, triangular craft in the sky over the Humber Estuary. At least nine people spoke to newspaper reporters at the Hull Daily Mail of seeing the craft. The first sighting took place at 7.30pm on July 25th, with reports coming in all night and for many days after, with the final sighting coming on August 4. The craft moved from west to east and headed toward the North Sea. One eyewitness watched the craft through binoculars. Another stated seeing similar craft over Hull on at least four occasions that year. A second sighting on July 26th described a silver cigar shaped object with sharp pointed wings and a red light on one side with a green light on the other. moving at a steady speed. Explanations included mass hallucinations, weather balloons, blimps, and Chinese lanterns.

• On July 26 2013, the Hull Daily Mail reported a UFO sighting over eastern Hull. A woman described the object as bright and almost fan shaped, about half the size of the moon. The object moved in a clockwise direction, rotating round and round, then dropped sharply to the earth, before rising again.

 

Hull maybe deemed the end of the line but it has proven a popular destination for alien visitors.

There have been a surprising number of sightings over the last 50 or 60 years with flying discs and curious bright lights being spotted across East Yorkshire’s open skies.

Some sightings can easily be explained away as satellites, airplanes or weather phenomenon.

These days such reports could now be drones and we have more ambitious satellite projects such as Elon Muck’s Starlink which has them positioned in a line.

But other sightings are more challenging to rationalise.

In the last few years the Ministry of Defence has released many of its UFO files and local historian Mike Covell delved into the online reports ton find out more.

Mass sighting

During July 1967, a number of people as far and wide as Hull, Bridlington, Hornsea, and Withernsea, saw a strange light in the sky, which moved towards the coast.

Staff on a pirate radio ship saw it above their vessel and reported it live on air, with thousands of callers calling in to state they could also see the craft.
By the end of the show, 3,000 listeners reported seeing it but it was never identified.

That was a bumper year for sightings around the world, but locally they started in January when Hull residents witnessed strange red lights over the Humber and across the city.

The coastguard confirmed they were not responsible for the lights and even launched to see if it was a stricken vessel in the Humber but nothing was found.

Others claimed the sighting was nothing more than a balloon.

Professor’s brief encounter of the third kind

The village of Welton was the scene of a bizarre encounter in July 1967.

A physicist professor from the University of Hull saw a bright white light land in a field near Welton.

He felt a vibration and heard a buzzing noise. He shielded his eyes because of the intensity of the light and next saw it airborne and heading across the Humber. The sighting was never fully explained away and remains a mystery.

The First Ever UFO Was Seen in the Skies Above Berkshire UK

Article by Hugh Fort                                July 11, 2020                             (getreading.co.uk)

• On August 18, 1783 at around 9pm, townspeople in Berkshire (in south-central England) watched “flashes of light on the northern horizon” followed by a “roundish shiny object” as big as “half the width of the moon”. It started off still, but then began to move and became brighter. It became oblong-shaped and so bright it “illuminated the whole landscape”. Then the object developed a tail and “several luminous bodies, each with its own tail.” Then they disappeared. Reports say that, ten minutes later, witnesses from Shetland to Brussels saw the sphere become elliptical (egg-shaped) and repeatedly changed between the two shapes, high in the sky and traveling at an incredibly fast speed.

• According to a book by Duncan MacKay entitled, Bizarre Berkshire, the common explanation for the UFO was that it was a very bright meteor. But witnesses said it was travelling parallel with the earth, rather than hurtling towards it. Also, no crater was ever found.

• One witness, Tiberius Cavallo, wrote about the sighting: “It is certain of between 9.15pm and 9.30pm that night a very bright meteor, having entered the earth’s atmosphere over the open waters of the North Sea, passed along the whole eastern coast of northern Scotland and England.” Of course, in 1783, no one had ever heard of an extraterrestrial UFO craft.

• In 1783, photography was years away. A painter and Royal Academian, Paul Sandby did draw the scene for posterity. (see etching above) The incident was documented by the group of people who watched from Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

 

The modern world is littered with reports of UFOs.

Barely a day goes by without someone claiming they’ve seen a flying saucer as they reclined their seat in business class, or gazed into the skies above Bracknell, for example.

Tales of eerie happenings in the sky are tenfold, and most of the time are met with scepticism or, at the very least, a raised eyebrow.
Sightings have been commonplace since man took to the skies. But did you know the first recorded UFO sighting came way before the miracle of flight?

And did you know it was spotted in the skies above in Berkshire?
The brilliant book Bizarre Berkshire by Duncan MacKay, available from Reading’s Two Rivers Press, takes us way back to 1783 to tell the tale.

The world’s first UFO sighting

Photography was years away in 1783 and so the first sighting of a UFO had to be etched. It was created by painter and Royal Academian Paul Sandby after an extraordinary incident in Windsor.

It happened on August 18, at around 9pm.

People across Britain claimed to have seen it, but it was Sandby, his brother Paul, Tiberius Cavallo, Dr James Lind, Dr Lockman and two unknown women, who were in Windsor Castle at the time, who were able to document it.
