following video clips are excerpted from the new feature-length
documentary film Out
of the Blue, an in-depth investigation of the UFO phenomenon. Click on title and clip will open in a new window.
Sequence - Out of the Blue
presents unexplained cases from around the world, investigates 50
years of official contradictions and denials, and puts forth possible
reasons for secrecy. The film also examines scientific theories regarding
interstellar travel and discusses the current movement for official
disclosure on the subject of UFOs a subject that has been considered
by most government officials to be unworthy of serious investigation.
and the Military - In 1964, former U.S. Air Force Lt.
Bob Jacobs was in the 13-69th photo squadron at Vandenberg Air Force
Base in California. His mission was to film an Atlas Rocket going
through all three stages of powered flight. Upon developing the film
it was discovered that the camera captured something unexpected. According
to Jacobs, when the rocket was traveling between 11,000 and 14,000
miles per hour, a saucer-shaped craft entered the frame.
Gordon Cooper's Sighting - In 1955, while stationed
at Edwards Air Force Base, Mercury 7 astronaut Gordon Cooper witnessed
an event that has yet to be explained nearly 50 years later. He was
supervising the filming of a precision landing facility for F-86 fighter
jets. Suddenly, a saucer-like craft flew directly over the cameraman.
Three landing gear apparatuses opened, and the object landed on the
dry lake bed.
of Interstellar Travel - One of the main arguments
used to deny the possibility of interstellar travel is the question
of distance. The closest star, Alpha Centauri, is 4.2 light years
away. If astronauts traveled to this star at the speed they reached
the moon, it would take them roughly 100,000 years. Although at present
the solution to interstellar travel may sound like science fiction,
a growing number of scientists are exploring radical new theories
that may circumvent these obstacles.
Disclosure Project - In
Washington, D.C., on May 9, 2001, a major press conference was held
at the National Press Club, one of the world's premier journalistic
organizations, to launch the Disclosure Project campaign. More than
20 military, government and corporate witnesses gave testimony about
unambiguous UFO and extraterrestrial events. Many witnesses provided
official documentation to support their claims. The goal of the
Disclosure Project is to get immunity so that these witnesses can
testify freely in open congressional hearings.
