“The Army Wants To Verify To The Stars Academy’s Fantastic UFO Mystery Material
Claims – An official agreement makes it clear the Army wants to explore the possibility that To The Stars Academy may actually have something game-changing.”

(The Drive, U.S.A.)

In my opinion – this article proves that some of the people within the U.S. military are interested in the UFO phenomenon – and take UFOs seriously.

UFO Radio Interview:
“Randall Nickerson & Emily Trim,
Ariel Phenomenon”

Streamed live: 10 September 2019

Video text:
“Alejandro Rojas with Updates, and a very interesting 25th Anniversary show with Randall Nickerson and Ariel School Incident witness, Emily Trim. We discuss this incident, the 10 year making of the completed and to be released film, Ariel Phenomenon,  Emily discusses the encounter as well as the impact it has made on her life and others, this is a show not to miss!

Synopsis: Ariel Phenomenon is about the human search for acceptance and meaning. It's about struggling to live with a secret and its devastating effects on your life. In this character-driven travelogue we follow Emily, a Toronto resident and one of sixty schoolchildren who, in 1994, were part of what has become one of the most famous sightings of extraterrestrial beings and their craft. In the first feature documentary produced on the incident, Emily returns to the Ariel School in Zimbabwe, the place that, at the age of nine, shattered her reality. We meet Tim Leach, a respected BBC war reporter who reluctantly covered the event, ultimately leading him to risk his career on the one story that haunted him the most. Also jeopardizing his reputation is Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvard professor of Psychiatry Dr. John Mack, whose validation of the authenticity of the witnesses made this incident impossible to ignore. Twenty years later, Emily and her classmates are searching for answers and the courage to speak their truth in the face of a hostile world. Though this story was initially publicized worldwide, it quickly disappeared from the public eye but not from the hearts and minds of those who witnessed it. The event continues to have a deep impact on many of their lives. Their courage, conviction and consistency, both then and now, makes it difficult to dismiss this account as a child's imagination. For twenty years many of the witnesses have felt that their voices have not been heard. Until now.”

My comment: This UFO incident involved sixty-two school children who sighted a landed UFO and two beings at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, on 16 September 1994.

Former U.S. Navy pilot Brian Sinclair comments on the 2004 and 2015 U.S. Navy UFO videos.

The FLIR1 video was recorded on 14 November 2004 and the Gimbal and GoFast videos were recorded on 21 January 2015.

The November 2004 USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group 11 UFO incidents occurred about a hundred miles south west of San DiegoCalifornia. The main UFO incident occurred on
14 November 2004 (David Fravor and Jim Slaight).

David Fravor, who chased the UFO (resembled a white Tic Tac), was flying his F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter. 

It was not Fravor who filmed the Tic Tac UFO. The UFO was filmed a while after Fravor’s incident.

Lieutenant Commander (later Commander) Jim Slaight was the pilot of the second F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter.

It was the USS Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group 9 that held exercises approximately 100 miles east (JAX OPAREA), equidistant between Jacksonville, Florida, and Savannah, Georgia, in January 2015.

UFO News Article:
“Ripples: 3 Somers Point 6th-Graders
Have Strange Encounter”

18 December 1981
(The Press of Atlantic City, New Jersey)

Sources: U.F.O. Newsclipping Service, Plumerville, Arkansas and

The whole article (Page 1):
“Three Somers Point students can tell you what a UFO looks like.

The children, in fact, have become something of an authority on such phenomena – because they saw one.

The three were privileged to observe – at close range – what can be described as a strange airborne object.

It did indeed hover for a while over the car in which they were riding.

And since all three agree to the letter on its dimensions and appearance – ergo, there really are such things, right here in Somers Point.

Bill Hawthorne, art instructor at the Jordan Road School in Somers Point, did some investigating into the incident. ‘One of the children told me what she had seen,’ explained Hawthorne. ‘Then another in the group also began to tell me about the strange thing which followed their car here on Bala Drive,’ said Hawthorne. By this time he was interested enough to have all the students draw a picture of the UFO which they had seen earlier this month. Amazingly, the pictures matched. ‘They drew them separately, with no knowledge of what the other two had drawn,’ said Hawthorne.

The sixth-graders who saw the object were: Jennifer Montgomery, Michele Frisko and Patti Meyers.

A credible witness confirms the children’s stories. Sixth grade teacher Lillian Frisko was the driver of the car which attracted the brightly lit UFO. She was taking the girls to a gymnastics event, and earthly traffic can be difficult enough without being distracted by an unidentified flying object. Hawthorne, being thorough in his investigation, requested Frisko also to draw the object she had seen – and it corresponded exactly with the others.

Summing up, the Somers Point UFO was disc-shaped in appearance, and colored orange. The four agreed there was a row of lights across the bottom – and it paused and moved at the same pace and in the same direction as the car.

‘We checked around and there seems to be no scientific explanation,’ said Hawthorne. ‘We’re surprised no one else seems to have seen it.”

My comment: The article does not mention when the UFO incident occurred. It is possible the incident occurred in December 1981.

UFO News Article:
“Oakland policeman reports seeing UFO”

3 March 1982
(Central Maine Morning Sentinel, Waterville, Maine)

Sources: U.F.O. Newsclipping Service, Plumerville, Arkansas and

The whole article (Page 6):
“Anyone unlucky enough to be up at 4:50 a.m. Monday (1 March 1982) when thermometers around Oakland registered from 20 to 28 below zero had the opportunity for a reward of a sort — an unidentified flying object.

Two Oakland men, one an Oakland police officer who was on duty at the time, have reported seeing an unexplained light in the sky between Messalonskee Lake and the Waterville Country Club.

Police Sgt. Ralph Sabins reported the sighting in the police log as occurring at 4:50 a.m. March 1. His official description listed the light, which was brighter than any of the stars or planets visible, as being over Messalonskee Lake as sighted from the Country Club Road.

He reported it hovered there before heading toward the northeast (over his head) without any discernible engine noise. When the light passed overhead, power lines shook and fluttered even though there was no wind, Sabins wrote.

Dan Savage, leaving his house to go get breakfast before opening his variety store in Oakland reported a similar experience. He said he was out in front of his house at 4:55 a.m. Monday when he noticed the bright light in the sky and assumed at first it was an ‘airplane or something.’

When it dropped down at a 45 degree angle and then went off straight, parallel to the horizon, he knew it wasn’t a plane. ‘There was no noise, no sound,’ he said, even though it was cold, clear and still that he could hear the frozen trees popping and crackling along the edge of the lake.

He said he watched it head off over Libby Hill toward where Sabins had observed it from, and that he was mystified by the fact that it was so quiet. ‘I’ve seen falling stars,’ he said, adding that his certainly wasn’t one. He described it as being a lot brighter than any of the stars that morning.

Savage said that later in the day a woman was in his store, Dan’s Variety, when she asked if anyone had noticed anything strange at about 5 a.m. She told Savage that her house had begun to make funny creaking noises at that time and wondered if another tremor or earthquake had occurred.

Savage mentioned his sighting at a local breakfast restaurant immediately after he saw it, and, after getting a few raised eyebrows from other patrons, he found that Sabins, who was at the counter, had just seen the same thing.”

“Vermont’s encounter: UFO or aurora borealis?”

4 February 1982
(Boston Herald-American (now Boston Herald), Massachusetts)

Sources: U.F.O. Newsclipping Service, Plumerville, Arkansas and

The whole article (Page 3):
“Were three bright yellow objects from outer space holding maneuvers in the skies over this Connecticut River town (Windsor, Vermont) Tuesday night (2 February 1982)? Or were the mysterious lights, spotted by two policemen and a handful of people, just a part of the aurora borealis?

Police Sgt. Richard Polland, 47, a 14-year veteran of the force, said he spotted a ‘bright, yellow cylindrical object’ in the sky over a ridge near the river about 6:15 p.m.

‘I notified my office and learned one of my officers, David LaPlante, was also watching it,’ Polland said.

‘We watched it for four-five minutes. Suddenly, it shrunk down to the size of a star and sped away.’

A few minutes later Polland saw two bright lights over the same area. ‘They were maneuvering around. One trailed the other, came up beside it and then went under it.

‘Then one took off to the west and the other to the south,’ Polland said.

A short time later the two ‘objects’ repeated the process, he said.

Thomas Murphy also spotted the lights from his home here. ‘It just glowed. I was amazed . . . I’ve never seen an airplane or a helicopter move that fast. It was nothing like an airplane. I wanted so much for it to come closer, I’ll be watching again tonight.’

National Weather Service officials in Burlington said the aurora borealis, or northern lights, which have been bright all week, might deserve credit for such a spectacular light show over Windsor.

But Polland, who served three years with the military in Alaska, discounts that theory. ‘It was definitely not the aurora borealis. I’m very familiar with that.’

Polland added: ‘I don’t know what it was. People a lot smarter than I am are trying to figure it out.’

The local police received four or five calls from residents who said they saw the mysterious lights in the sky and the officers said they would report the sightings to the Center for UFO Studies in Evanston, Ill.

UFO News Article:
“Police Spot More UFOs Over Windsor”

4 March 1982
(Valley News, Lebanon, New Hampshire)

Sources: U.F.O. Newsclipping Service, Plumerville, Arkansas and

The whole article (Page 2):
“Unidentified colored lights were again seen in the sky over town last night (3 March 1982), according to the police.

Deatails [sic] this morning were sketchy, but a police dispatcher said two officers and two firemen saw colored lights, shaped in a ‘V’ in the western sky about 11:30 p.m.

The officers, William Heinz and Ronald Walker, were patrolling on Hunt Hill Road when the colored lights caught their attention, according to the dispatcher.

The lights were also seen by firefighters Ralph Burnham and William Seeley, according to the police.

In all, three sightings were reported; from Hunt Hill Road, the Grand Union parking lot and the Windsor police station. The police and firefighters could not be reached this morning for details of last night’s sighting.

According to the police dispatcher, the description of last night’s UFO matched stories of sightings reported over Windsor last month. On Feb. 2, five UFOs were spotted hovering over the east side of town. In both incidents, observers saw colored lights arranged in a ‘V’ shape.

No explanation has been found for the February sightings, and last night’s lights remained a mystery this morning.”

My comment: On numerous occasions – we have seen that UFOs sometimes return to an area a second time (or multiple times) within a few hours, days or weeks.

NOTE: I have corrected this blog post. I initially thought the UFO incident had occurred in Windsor, New Hampshire. This is not the case. It occurred in Windsor, Vermont.

At 1355 M.S.T., Stanley H. Brown, a Meteorological Aid employed with the United States Weather Bureau, and private pilot, while using a theodolite to follow a pilot balloon saw an object going upward and curving to the west. About 20 seconds after sighting the first object a second object came into the field of view. The first object flew to the west, while the second object swooped across or near the path of the first object three or four times. The two objects were observed through the 32 power theodolite for a period of 5 minutes. The objects were almost round, a solid, dull, pure white color, with a thin white mist completely edging each object.

“Writing in The Advertiser, Mr. F. W. Flavel of Lock, Eyre Peninsula, states: ‘I saw objects in the sky between 7 and 8 o’clock the same day (5 February 1947) as you received a report from Port Augusta. I was walking in a north-westerly direction to the house after feeding the pigs. There were five of the strange objects and they seemed to be coming up out of the sea, like a shadow with smoky greyish color around them. ‘They were oblong with narrow points. I saw them quite plainly. They seemed to be floating in the air from north-west to south-east and caused a shadow.’ ”

This appears to be an unidentified submerged object (USO)/UFO incident.

Lock is located 78 kilometres (48 miles) south west of the town of Kimba, according to Google Earth.
