A Federal Judge has ruled that NASA must comply with a Freedom of Information Act request to hand over all its information on an alleged UFO sighting which was reported in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania in 1965. Freelance journalist Leslie Kean was asked by the SciFi channel to find a UFO case with credible witnesses and possible physical evidence, for a documentary that was being produced by the television company. Kean submitted a Freedom of Information Act request with NASA in order to obtain any information the US space agency might have on the Kecksburg incident. After a denial that the organization was in possession of any such information, Kean filed a lawsuit forcing NASA to hand over any information relating to the case. A 1000 page document was then produced by NASA, but this satisfied neither Kean nor the judge, who has now requested that NASA search its entire archives for information on the Kecksburg incident.
Quote: "Bill Bulebush, 82, says he knows what he saw, heard and smelled, despite the doubts of the government and others in this community 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. "I looked up and saw it flying overhead and it was sizzling," said Bulebush, a retired truck driver. "I found it in the woods down there [in a valley] and I got to it 15 to 20 minutes after it landed. I saw it 10 to 15 feet away from behind a big tree -- because I was worried it might blow up -- and it smelled like sulphur or rotten eggs and was shaped like a huge acorn, about the size of a VW." Other people said that shortly afterward, dozens of Army soldiers and three members of the Air Force showed up; later that night a flatbed military truck took the object away.
Many of those who report such encounters with UFOs and their pilots often describe the same unusual phenomena, a nauseating smell of sulphur and sometimes a hostile intent towards human life. The archaic name for sulphur - brimstone, is associated in the Scriptures with God's judgement. The Bible states that the Lord rained down "fire and brimstone" in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24). The place of torment prepared by God for the eternal damnation of Satan and his angels also burns with "fire and brimstone" (Revelation 20:10). The same smell has also apparently been associated with ghostly apparitions and demonic activity. It seems that UFO sightings and other unexplained phenomenon are becoming more and more commonplace today, and harder to explain away. Just last year a major UFO sighting occurred at O'Hare's airport in Chicago. A UFO was witnessed by a least a dozen airport employees, including baggage handlers, maintenance crew and several pilots. The object was alleged to hover over the United Airlines terminal for a few minutes, and then shot off into the sky. According to the FAA, the control tower staff saw nothing out of the ordinary, either visually or on radar. No investigation is being carried out by the government or the Aviation Authority.
Quote: ""I tend to be scientific by nature, and I don't understand why aliens would hover over a busy airport," said a United mechanic who was in the cockpit of a Boeing 777 that he was taxiing to a maintenance hangar when he observed the metallic-looking object above Gate C17. "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 mechanic said. One United employee appeared emotionally shaken by the sighting and "experienced some religious issues" over it, one co-worker said. A United manager said he ran outside his office in Concourse B after hearing the report about the sighting on an internal airline radio frequency. "I stood outside in the gate area not knowing what to think, just trying to figure out what it was," he said. "I knew no one would make a false call like that. But if somebody was bouncing a weather balloon or something else over O'Hare, we had to stop it because it was in very close proximity to our flight operations."
And even over my home town of Bangor, strange lights have been seen in the sky. I didn't see them, but my dad did. A few weeks ago, an international panel comprising of a dozen former pilots and government officials called on the United States to reopen its UFO investigation programme. Each person on the panel has either witnessed a UFO sighting first hand, or has been involved in the investigation of an alleged incident. James Fox, director and producer of a Ufology documentary "Out of the blue", believes the outing of such information would have a "unifying effect on all of us". But perhaps the time is not yet right. The Bible states that during the tribulation period, God will send unbelieving men strong delusion so they might believe a lie, that all might be damned who believed not the truth (2nd Thessalonians 2:11). We're not told what that lie will be, but according to New Age teaching, I think it may be related to the rapture of the Church and linked with the UFO phenomenon. In any case millions of people suddenly disappearing into thin air will have an enormous unifying effect on the nations of earth, and if Satan is to pull off such a deception to cover up the truth, this would be the best time to reveal to the world that "we are not alone". Of course the Bible never said we were alone, there are millions and millions of demons out there, bent on bringing about the damnation of the human race. Praise God that Jesus Christ is coming again to take His Church home. The question is, are you ready to go? Trust in Jesus Christ for salvation today.
