Astronaut Edgar Mitchell says UFOs were sighted regularly during his career at NASA but it was always covered up. “Slowly it's leaked out & some of us were privileged to be briefed on it. I've been in military & intelligence circles, & they knew beneath the surface of public knowledge that yes, we have been visited.” NASA was quick to play the comments down: “Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.”
Japan-1803 One of the first modern UFO stories comes from Japan. This is the story of Utsuro-Bune, a mysterious alien woman who appeared suddenly from the depths of the Pacific Ocean on a round ship. A detailed study of paintings from the era of the Utsuru-Bune reveals an object that resembles a flying saucer, similar to those seen today. A pale, redheaded woman was inside the ship, wearing soft, light clothing clutching a box. Where did she come from? What was in the box? Nobody knows.
