Jan. 17, 1953; Near Guatemala City, Guatemala (BBU 2337)
3:55 p.m. Geologist/salesman John Townsend Sackett was riding in a bus with about a dozen passengers when he observed a brilliant greenish-gold object, shaped like the Goodyear Blimp with length/height ratio 2:1. It was later described as being about twice the size of a DC-3. The object was traveling at about 400 mph straight and level in a northwesterly direction at about 6,500'. He reported that it almost stopped flight, then rose vertically about 1,500', hovered for about 2 seconds, then immediately resumed flight at new altitude. Object lost to view because of intervening terrain. The Blue Book documents mention the object was sighted near the volcano, Fuego. Documents also mention another witness on the bus, a woman, who says she saw ‘the gold thing’ for 4-5 seconds. (Berliner, Dan Wilson)” presents U.S. government (Project Blue Book, U.S. Air Force) documents that pertain to the UFO case.

UFO News Article:
“The Navy acknowledges UFOs —
so why aren’t they on Washington’s radar?”

By Christopher Mellon, 2 November 2019
(The Hill, Washington, D.C.)

Quote from the article:
“Is the information too jarring and radical to process? Are U.S. government officials in denial? One can only wonder, given the glaring disconnect between the Navy’s announcement and the limited government actions to protect U.S. military personnel and the nation as a whole.”

Christopher Mellon is a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and a former Minority Staff Director, Senate Intelligence Committee. Mellon is now the National Security Affairs Advisor for the To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science.
