Ancient Aliens Celebrates 10 Years of Searching for Extraterrestrials

by Susan Leighton                     May 30, 2019                     (1428elm.com)

• In 2009, the History Channel debuted a television series to prove the existence of an extraterrestrial presence on the Earth. Ten years later, Ancient Aliens is still one of the most watched programs on the History Channel. In fact, the show is so popular that it spawned an Alien Con (a series of conferences in various cities that cater to space exploration themed tv shows) which is widely attended and has attracted celebrities as well as former government officials.

• The genesis of the program was Erich von Däniken’s book, Chariots of the Gods? which makes a case for the ancient astronaut theory by asserting that primitive man made contact with extraterrestrials. These close encounters of the third kind resulted in accelerated human development due to genetic engineering as well as technological advancement.

• The series travels the globe and routinely visits exotic locales to examine proof of extraterrestrial visitation. This year’s season will cover a wide variety of topics ranging from government funding of UFO research to an in-depth look at Egypt’s Great Pyramid chambers. Joining consulting producer Giorgio A. Tsoukalos are David Hatcher Childress, William Henry and Linda Moulton Howe.

 

Ancient Aliens is one of the most watched programs on the History Channel. In 2009, their quest for proof of extraterrestrial life began. 10 years later, the series is still going strong and ready to start a new season on May 31.
Perhaps one of the most well-known contributors to the show and a consulting producer is Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. He is an outspoken proponent of the ancient astronaut theory and student of Erich von Däniken.

Von Däniken wrote an entire book that has become an integral part of UFO culture called, Chariots of the Gods? which makes a case for the ancient astronaut theory by asserting that primitive man made contact with extraterrestrials. These close encounters of the third kind resulted in accelerated human development due to genetic engineering as well as technological advancement.

‘We Know UFOs Are Real, But Why Are They Here?’ – Ex-US Defense Official

May 30, 2019                    (sputniknews.com)

• Christopher Melon (pictured above), former deputy assistant Secretary of Defense for intelligence, appeared on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” show on May 29th to outline the reasons that the US Navy is taking a special interest in pilot testimonies. He argued that US intelligence is well aware of the fact that UFOs exist, and that this is no longer an issue. “The issue is why are they here? Where are they coming from and what is the technology behind these devices that we are observing?”said Mellon.

• Mellon recounted how the UFOs reported by pilots in 2014 and 2015 were doing aerial maneuvers not possible in this physical realm. He cited the speed of a UFO as climbing to 5,000 miles per hour, which could be sustainable for only about an hour by an aircraft in the air. Whereas those UFOs witnessed would be flying all day long, according to the “mystified” pilots.

• These UFOs were written off as highly classified ‘drones’ until a Super Hornet pilot described a near collision with a UFO, which he described as a ‘sphere encasing a cube’. The pilot’s public statement prompted an official report to be filed. Mellon said that these UFOs operate in and around US military facilities. This poses a safety issue and a national security issue.

• Mellon noted that the US is hardly the only country to have interactions with the objects in question. He is deeply frustrated by the fact that the government is taking a cavalier attitude and demonstrating an unwillingness to act on the public concerns. So the only way to get it rolling is to release the information to the public in the form of his new show and television interviews. Mellon is currently partaking in a new History Channel series called “Unidentified”, which will expound on the widely reported alien spaceship sightings. “We are giving military personnel on the front line a voice”, Mellon said. “We are helping them get out the message of what it is they are encountering and why they are so concerned about it”.

• Meanwhile, the US media increasingly reports sightings of enigmatic flying objects capable of performing maneuvers seemingly impossible for naval aviation pilots that operate over the country’s eastern seaboard, among other areas.

 

In the wake of a bombshell report detailing Navy pilots’ regular encounters with unidentified flying objects in 2014 and 2015, Christopher Melon, former deputy assistant Secretary of Defense for intelligence, has issued a comment on the subject asserting that the issue has long been there and the government needs to finally resolve it.

Mellon, who is currently partaking in a new History Channel series called “Unidentified”, which will expound on the widely reported alien spaceship sightings discussed at length in a recent New York Times article.

Appearing on “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday, Mellon, who has previously extensively covered the topic, outlined the reasons that the Navy is taking a special interest in pilot testimonies. He argued that the intelligence is well aware of the fact that UFOs exist, adding that this is no longer an issue.

“The issue is why are they here? Where are they coming from and what is the technology behind these devices that we are observing?” he posed a question.

According to Mellon, they have plausible clues that the controversial objects reported by Navy pilots in 2014 and 2015 were doing something that isn’t at all possible in this physical realm. As an example, he cited the speed of an object being reported as climbing to 5,000 miles per hour, which could be sustainable for only about an hour by an aircraft in the air, whereas those witnessed would be flying all day long, according to the “mystified” pilots.

There was quite some fear, meanwhile, which replaced the previously mentioned mystification after a Super Hornet pilot described his near collision with an object, which he described as a sphere encasing a cube. His public statement also prompted an official report to be filed, with the incident shattering a previous theory suggested by pilots that the objects were a part of some sort of extremely classified drone operation.

“These are reactions between intelligently controlled vehicles operating in and around US military facilities, hence the concern”, Mellon addressed the issue, continuing: “One: there have been near mid-air collisions so there is a safety issue. Two, there is a vital national security issue which is that our sovereignty is being violated by vehicles of unknown origin”, Mellon stated.

These 5 UFO Traits, Seen by Navy Fighters, Defy Explanation

by Missy Sullivan and Greg Daugherty                     May 20, 2019                     (history.com)

• Luis Elizondo, the former DoD intelligence officer who headed up the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) until 2012, is now an investigator with Tom DeLonge’s ‘To The Stars Academy’ and is featured on HISTORY’s new television program (ie: the History Channel), “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation”.

• It was Elizondo and the ‘To The Stars Academy’ that were integral in bringing to the public the ‘Tic Tac’ UFO Navy cockpit video from 2004, with USS Nimitz-based pilots’ comments that included, “Holy sh*t, what is that?”, and “It’s white. It has no wings. It has no rotors,” and “It didn’t fly like an aircraft. It was so unpredictable.”

• When Elizondo ran the DoD’s AATIP, he compiled a list of extraordinary, logic-defying capabilities most commonly associated with unidentified aerial phenomena sightings. Here are Elizondo’s “five observables”:

1) Anti-gravity lift – UAPs (Unidentified Ariel Phenomenon) have no visible means of propulsion and lack flight surfaces such as wings – thus the tubular, ‘Tic Tac’ description.

2) Sudden and instantaneous acceleration – UAPs will accelerate or change direction so quickly that no human pilot could survive the g-forces.

3) Hypersonic velocities without signatures – Aircraft traveling faster than the speed of sound will typically leave a “signature” like vapor trails and sonic booms. UAPs don’t.

4) Low observability or cloaking – Witnesses to a UAP will usually only see a glow or haze around them.

5) Trans-medium travel – UAPs have been seen moving in and between different environments, such as space, the earth’s atmosphere and even water. USS Princeton radar operator Gary Vorhees later confirmed from a Navy sonar operator in the area that day that a craft was moving faster than 70 knots underwater, roughly two times the speed of nuclear subs.

• UAPs’ origins are still unknown. Are they a super-top-secret U.S. defense project? Do they hail from Russia? China? Or from even further afield? The only thing we do know is that their capabilities exceed any technologies currently in the U.S. arsenal.

 

You know a UFO has earned its “unidentified” status when cockpit transcripts from elite Navy fighter jets include this frantic pilot exclamation: “Holy s___, what is that?”

When Luis Elizondo ran a small team at the U.S. Department of Defense investigating military-based reports of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), he heard numerous such accounts—by some of the most highly trained aeronautic experts in the military. They describe objects that appeared to be intelligently controlled, possessing aerodynamic capabilities that far surpass any currently known aircraft technology.

Now pursuing his investigations as part of To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, Elizondo is an integral part of the investigative team featured on HISTORY’s “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” where they have continued to gather eyewitness accounts:

“It’s white. It has no wings. It has no rotors.”

“It didn’t fly like an aircraft. It was so unpredictable—high g, rapid velocity, rapid acceleration.”

“I didn’t see a trail.”

“It was going 70-plus knots underwater.”

Those reports—from Navy fighter pilots, radar operators and other witnesses from the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier strike group incident from November 2004—were among a handful of shocking encounters the Unidentified team explored. When Elizondo ran the Defense Department initiative, called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or AATIP, he compiled a list of extraordinary, logic-defying capabilities most commonly associated with unidentified aerial phenomena sightings. He calls those traits the “five observables”:
