Learn about UFO sightings documented around President Obama, Reagan, Carter and more. There are twenty intense chapters, each on a different sighting, plus three bonus chapters on new UFO related information.

Did you know there were recently discovered faces on Mars of not one, but four new alien species? The photos are inside this book.

Look at this conversation during the O'Hare Airport UFO sighting that the United Airlines ramp tower and the FAA Area Supervisor had in a nearby O'Hare tower. We begin to understand some details of a photograph that exists through their interesting and revealing conversation:

Ramp Tower: "I'm sorry, there was, I told Dave, there was a disc flying outside above Charley 17 and he thought I was pretty much high. But, um, I'm not high and I'm not drinking."
O'Hare Tower: "Yeah."
Ramp Tower: "So, someone got a picture of it. So if you guys see it out there..."
O'Hare Tower: "A disc, like a Frisbee?"
Ramp Tower: Like a UFO type thing."
O'Hare Tower: "Yeah, Okay."
Ramp Tower: "He got a picture of it." (Laughing)

The information in this book clearly identifies and weights the facts and possibilities that exist in new and interesting ways.

Chapter One

O'Hare Airport UFO of 2006

One of the most talked about sightings in 2006 came on November 7th at the second busiest airport in America, the O'Hare. A saucer like object hovered over the airport for between three and seven minutes, before it shot straight upward at tremendous speeds. It shot through the clouds that sat above it, causing a circular gapping hole to be made as the saucer passed through it and disappeared. The circular hole in the cloud remained opened for fifteen minutes before it too disappeared. Although many UFOlogist call these flying objects Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, I believe political correctness or extreme accuracy of naming the craft is less significant than proving the actual existence of the craft, so I will here forth refer to them as UFO's.

1. Photo of O'Hare UFO over control tower. (At http://scwbook.blogspot.com/)

2. Photo of O'Hare UFO over runway. (At http://scwbook.blogspot.com/)

Associated Press wrote an article about O'Hare in July 3, 2006 quoting government statistics. It said O'Hare was the busiest airport in the nation for the first half of 2006. The airport had 477,001 flights including both take-offs and landings in that first six months. O'Hare's air traffic controllers usually have close to ninety-six arrivals per hour. That is one every 38 seconds often on numerous runways.

In the beginning the officials at United Airlines said that they had no information about the sighting of the UFO. The Chicago Tribune came to inquire about the sighting and had over one dozen United Airlines employees report to them that they witnessed the event first hand. The Federal Aviation Administration however did say that they received one phone call from a United Airlines supervisor about some of the employees seeing an unusual object that was elliptical shaped hovering motionless over Concourse C United terminal.

None of the controllers at O'Hare airport had seen the UFO and a check of radar activity revealed that nothing out of the ordinary was anywhere in the area. If this is true and current radar is incapable of picking up or tracking UFO phenomenon, then the government should look into improving such radar technologies, unless of course the UFO was seen on radar and they merely want to deny its existence, they will just deny and discredit all witness accounts of the event, saying it was a weather balloon or weather occurrence. Both are typical excuses used by the government to cover up sightings that are deemed classified material. An unknown object said to be fifteen to twenty five feet in diameter was hovering over an active runway, with the US already on high alert after the 911 attacks, yet they end the investigation as fast as it started. Not to mention that it posed a serious safety risk to the pilots and the passengers.

The FAA announced that they would not continue to investigate into the matter further. This news upset many who witnessed the sightings. This kind of decision shows the cover up in progress. Many of the employees interviewed by the Chicago Tribune stated that they were extremely upset that the government and United Airlines stopped all additional examination into the sighting. One such witness stated, "Some of us are getting angry with this being hushed up with all the terrorism and TSA idiots hanging around. If we see a funny looking bag all damn hell breaks loose, but park a funny silver thing a few hundred feet above a busy airport and everyone tries to hush it up. It just doesn't make sense."

Craig Burzych, a supervisor for United laughed about the whole ordeal saying that, "to fly 7 million light years to O'Hare and then to have to turn around and go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable." This kind of humor about such a serious incident is actually quite commonplace and makes the whole event look as if were a minor matter. He wasn't the only one to laugh about the event. There were many conversations between pilots and mechanics who witnessed the UFO firsthand and some pilots who where just curious joking to the control tower latter that day.

The first person to see the flying object was a United ramp worker who was directing back a United plane at Gate C17. He saw the UFO at 4:15 p.m. just as the sun began to set in the distance. Note that many sightings do occur during sunset, meaning that perhaps the changing light influences the UFO's translucent camouflage appearance making it visible momentarily.

A few of the witnesses said that the ship appeared like a rotating Frisbee in the sky. Other witnesses said the UFO was not appearing to rotate. Even though they differ in opinions about the rotation, they all agreed that the flying disk made no noise whatsoever and that it was situated in a motionless position just below the 1,900-foot cloud deck, before it shot upwards at a slight angle. The size of the UFO seems to vary among eyewitnesses at being between twenty-five and eighty-eight feet in diameter.

A mechanic who refused to give his name, yet worked for United Airlines was clearly baffled by the whole situation. "I tend to be scientific by nature, and I don't understand why aliens would hover over a busy airport." He was the earliest known witness at the airport. He was in the cockpit of a 777 Boeing when he witnessed the UFO in the sky. He was standing on the tarmac beside the nose of the 777 when he was compelled to look straight up for some reason and was surprised to see the UFO hovering. He watched the UFO as he taxied the 777 into its hanger. Perhaps he is right about the situation. It might not have been a UFO, but a cocky USAF pilot thinking his alien technology was further advanced than it actually was. We have to be open-minded when it comes to the unknown. The mechanic continued, "but I know that what I saw and what a lot of other people saw stood out very clearly, and it definitely was not an Earth aircraft." The fact that the mechanic said he was compelled to look up for some unknown reason is similar to other sightings (for instance Seattle) where people were compelled to get out of bed at three in the morning and walk outside to see unusual lights in the sky. This insinuates that some crafts have a telepathic connection that can reach interspecies levels, assuming the UFO was alien controlled.

One employee who had witnessed the UFO was rumored to be having some serious issues dealing with her religion after the event. This too seems logical since one of the things that was the deciding NASA questions for early Apollo astronauts was, "Do you believe in God?" If the answer was no, then you had the right stuff, or so a supposedly former astronaut William Rutledge said in an interview. Perhaps fear of classified information leaking if an astronaut seeks a session of religious counseling could cause NASA to be concerned.

A supervisor at United airlines said that he ran outside his office at Concourse B right after hearing reports of the UFO from other employees talking about it over the airline radio frequencies. "I stood outside in the gate area not knowing what to think, just trying to figure out what it was." He said he knew that employees would not make such a false report as this, so he had to see it for himself. He felt that it might be a weather balloon or something else hovering over O'Hare and may have to be stopped before it came into close proximity to the flights.

In a transcript of the conversation that the United Airlines ramp tower and the FAA Area Supervisor in a near by O'Hare tower, we begin to understand some details through their interesting and revealing conversation that started at 4:30 p.m.

O'Hare Tower: "Tower, this is Dave."

Ramp Tower: "Hey Dave, this is Sue in the United Tower."

O'Hare Tower: "Hey Sue."

Ramp Tower: "Hey, did you see a flying disc out by C17?"

O'Hare Tower: "Oh, it starts Sue." Then they laughed. "Oh, we're sorry Sue. A flying ... you're seeing flying discs?"

Ramp Tower: "Well, that's what a pilot in the ramp area at C17 told us. They saw some flying disc above them. But we can't see above us."

O'Hare Tower: "Common Sue."

Ramp Tower: "You didn't see it?"

O'Hare Tower: "No," she laughs.

Ramp Tower: "Hey, you guys been celebrating the holidays or anything, or what? You're celebrating Christmas day? I haven't seen anything Sue, and if I did I wouldn't admit to it. No I have not seen any flying disc at gate C17." Here Sue continues laughing. "Unless you've got a new aircraft you're bringing out that I don't know about."

O'Hare Tower: "No," she laughs.

This conversation shows how even an experienced airport employees have fears about discussing information about UFO sightings. The fears that the two individuals have about discussing such a topic causes them to laugh when they try to imagine it. This is the kind of attitude that the US Government is counting on in order to keep the details they have learned to themselves. The government uses psychology to play on Joe Publics' fears of looking foolish, and it works almost every time. In their next conversation the fact that a picture does actually exists gets uncovered.

Ramp Tower: "I'm sorry, there was, I told Dave, there was a disc flying outside above Charley 17 and he thought I was pretty much high. But, um, I'm not high and I'm not drinking."

O'Hare Tower: "Yeah."

Ramp Tower: "So, someone got a picture of it. So if you guys see it out there ..."

O'Hare Tower: "A disc, like a Frisbee?"

Ramp Tower: Like a UFO type thing."

O'Hare Tower: "Yeah, Okay."

Ramp Tower: "He got a picture of it." (Laughing)

A third conversation was recorded between a male at United Ramp tower and O'Hare tower that began at 4:52 pm. It admits to multiple pilots witnessing the UFO.

Ramp Tower: "Some of our employees ... I don't know if you know anything about this? Some of our pilots on the ground are reporting a UFO sighting at a thousand feet to the east side of the airport. Do you guys know anything about this?"

O'Hare Tower: "You know, the ramp tower called me, I want to say about ten or fifteen minutes ago. We have not seen anything up here."

Richard Haines, who is the science director at the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, was deeply concerned with the sighting. "More and more we are coming to the point of view that we are dealing with an intelligent phenomenon." Haines reporting center is a privately run agency. He feels that people need to be proactive now before an aircraft accident occurs. Haines is also a former chief of Space Human Factors Office at NASA's Ames Research Center.

All the people who saw the O'Hare UFO first hand, including a few pilots, said they are confident that based upon the overall appearance of the strange craft, that there was no way possible that it could be an airplane, weather balloon, helicopter or any other craft that is known to exist. The witnesses were unsure of what controlled the craft that they saw, yet very certain that it was saucer shaped. The employees at United were irritated that a UFO came into restricted airspace for a few minutes and no one in power had taken the matter seriously. This seems to be an opposite behavior than we would expect from experts at the FAA and O'Hare, so maybe word from above was sent down through the chain of command to hush it ASAP before a media frenzy began.

In the beginning, United Spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said that there was no record of any UFO report. "There is nothing in the duty manager log, which is used to report unusual incidents," she stated. This announcement seemed lacking since so many United employees and pilots reported the UFO sighting to their United supervisors.

The pilots of the United passenger jet being taxied back from Gate C17 were told by United employees of the sighting. One of the pilots reportedly opened a windscreen in the cockpit so that he could get a picture of the flying saucer to show others the proof. The pilot estimated that the strange craft hovered at about 1,500 feet above the ground. That was 400 feet below the cloud deck at the time.

Some witnesses reported that the UFO unexpectedly bolted upwards through the solid overcast clouds, which the FAA reported had a 1,900-foot cloud deck at the time of the UFO sighting. One employee who personally witnessed the flying saucer leaving said that it was like somebody punched a hole through the clouds in the sky. The witnesses said that they had a difficult time seeing it shoot upwards due to its tremendous speed, as if inertia had no influence over the craft. The craft left an empty hole in the clouds that remained clearly visible for close to three minutes. The FAA latter claimed that lights played tricks with witnesses' eyes that night, but the airport ramp lights had not yet been turned on. The only light capable of making a whole through a cloud would be a laser, which would evaporate the droplets and cause a window. O'Hare has no need for burning lasers with twenty foot in diameter beams, so that reasoning by the FAA was not thought out so well. The hole in the cloud was said to exist for up to fourteen minutes by some eyewitnesses in the parking lot area at O'Hare. This suggests that the object that made the hole was super heated or otherwise radiated (possibly microwaves) energy that would have to be on the order of 9.4 kj/[m.sup.3].

The hole in the cloud, caused by UFO, has been seen many times throughout history. For example in a declassified Army Air Force Intelligence report stated in July 10, 1947 at Harmon Field, Newfoundland, Chief Mechanic for Pan American Airways (John E. Woodruff) saw a "translucent disk like a wheel traveling at a terrific speed and opened the clouds as it went through the air." Then he stated, "the object passed through and cut the cloud leaving a gap where you could see the blue sky."

Also a formerly classified U.S. Government document report (Oct. 28, 1947) was released under the Freedom of Information Act states some commonly listed features of flying discs: "The ability to group together very quickly in a tight formation when more than one aircraft are together; evasive action ability indicated the possibility of being manually operated, or possibly by electronics or remote control, and under certain conditions the craft seems to have the ability to CUT A CLEAR PATH THROUGH CLOUDS."

On March 9, 1977 a club master and professional golfer in Ayrshire, Scotland was the eyewitness to a similar cloud-cutting incident. He and his friend report seeing an odd light hovering over the seventeenth tee, no higher than a telegraph pole. Its glare was so powerful, that nothing behind it could be seen. After hovering for four minutes, the light suddenly bolted upwards into the low clouds, leaving a clear hole in it as it passed through. This opening in the clouds remained for several minutes despite the winds moving the clouds noticeably.

On December 6, 2002 in Ventura, California, two college professors witnessed a dark object move across the sky, then it stopped and hovered. It changed shape from disc to an oval. It soon shot through the clouds cutting a visible hole in which the blue sky above could be viewed.

Elizabeth Isham Cory, a person doing an internal FAA review of the air-traffic at the time of the O'Hare UFO sighting said the weather might have been a factor. "Our theory on this matter is that it was a weather phenomenon," she said. "That night was a perfect atmospheric condition in terms of low cloud ceiling and a lot of airport lights. When the lights shine up into the clouds, sometimes you can see funny things. That's our take on it." This reasoning is interesting to say the least. She says that it was night, yet it was 4:30 p.m. and the sun had not yet set. The airport lights had not yet been turned on. This kind of explanation only contributes to feelings of disbelief and cynicism of the witnesses. It seems so unreasonable as to be ludicrous and begs the question, how could someone who did not even see this UFO come to such a conclusion? It is obvious that if commercial pilots and commercial aircraft mechanics said that they witnessed a UFO, then it can be concluded that it's true. Sigmund Freud once stated this about reading too much into things, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." Meaning that the FAA was reaching for many possible complex explanations when there was only one, they saw what they saw.
