There is a place in Southern California that feels as alien as the surface of the planet Mars would. The Tujunga Canyons was first inhabited by the Tongva people, the Native tribes of the Los Angeles basin. The name, Tujunga, is believed to mean “old woman’s place,” a reference to mother earth. In 1953 the area that comprises the Tujunga Canyon reg…

For every UFO sighting reported, how many many go unreported? Even more, how many of them become classic cases that are mentioned and written about for time immemorial? This case is one that has lived in obscurity since it was first written about. I stumbled upon it while perusing old issues of Flying Saucer Review, and I felt like I couldn’t cover…
 
In 1975, over the skies of southern Manitoba, a quaint UFO would begin to make regular appearances that would last for nearly two years.

In February of 1978 the news in northern California was consumed by Ted Bundy’s arrest, coverage of the East Area Rapist, and Roman Polanski’s escape to France following charges of rape. There was one story, however, that took up a lot of page space in The Sacramento Bee, from February to June of that year. It’s the story of five men that went to a…
 
As above, so below. It’s a phrase that traces itself to the founding of Hermeticism. Those words can be found on the Emerald Tablet, a document that purportedly reveals the secrets of how to make the philosopher’s stone. As above, so below is a phrase that has carried on through generations. It’s found in the Bible, it’s an element in the hit serie…

When it comes to certain UFO cases, there are images that become indelibly implanted in your head. Whether it's the Adamski style saucers or the alien beings Whitley Strieber encountered in a cabin in upstate New York (what's with all the alien shaming, Angelo?), the saucers that haunt the mind have definite shapes. In the case of Stefan Michalak a…

When you think of the term "alien abduction" there are a handful of cases that may come to mind. Betty and Barney Hill, Pascagoula, Travis Walton. These are the holy trinity of abduction cases.

Inside the heart of every experiencer is the deep seated feeling that something is off. That something is missing, and that what is missing is often terrifying.

In the early 1960s, UFO contact began its transformation from benign encounters with human looking beings, to the more terrifying incidents involving non-human entities forcing bystanders on board, and subjecting them to medical examinations.

Knight had committed at least a thousand break-ins, but he always felt searing guilt about …
 
When most people think of Bigfoot, they think of the Pacific Northwest, of vast forested land untouched and uncharted by man.

A tractor driver named Jerry Crew drove out…

Every year, a handful of cars take a stroll down a dirt road just off of Clay Point Road in Colchester, Vermont.

The 1950s saw the rise of the contactees, a group of ordinary people that had been chosen by aliens from Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn to deliver a message to the citizens of earth: save the planet from atomic fallout. The message was always the same, and their cultures were strikingly similar. In 1957, a UFO event would change all that. In Octo…
 
There are certain areas across the United States that seem to draw UFOs. Catalina Island, off the coast of Southern California, is a place where you can see UFOs coming in and out of the water, and where, in 2014 it was rumored that one Google Earth image showed an underwater alien base under the water. Well, that claim turned out to be bunk, but t…

In 1973, the United States was experiencing a wave of humanoid reports. The creatures that were seen varied in size and appearance. Sometimes they were seen in the vicinity of UFOs, and sometimes they abducted eyewitnesses.
